Self -Reliance Theme 
Of Career Weekend 

Bi/ George Reath 
"Self-reliance seemed to be the theme that emerged from the 
|)anels and forums of this fifth career weekend just jiast. Startini^ 
with a comment by General Electric iiersoiuiel man l^obert (;ann- 
in){, this theme was carried throuj^h and found expression in both 
Personnel-Labor Kelatious and |oiunalism panels. 

Canning emphasized that the 
world of business differs from the 
world of education in that there is 
no set point at which a man passes 
from one position to a higher one, 
but he has to malce his own way — 
.show he is worlhy of publication. 

Henry Dawes '28, Director of 
Personnel for the Connecticut 
General Life Insurance Co. was 
driving at the same thing when he 
said that the "heir apparent" no 
longer succeeds automatically to a 
post. Often men are imported from 
other divisions of the company to 
take important managerial posi- 

Ford Foundation Gives $50,000 
Towards Roper Center Research 

Professor Philip K. Hastings, Director of the Roper Puljlic Opinion Research Center, has an- 
nounced the undertakinff of a prof^ram desij^ned to evaluate the impact of the nationally televised 
physics eomse entitled "Continental (Jlassrooni." The Center has been jj;ranted $49,500 by the Ford 
Foundation, through the collej^e, to undertake the |5roject, beginning in February and ending in 
.May, with a final rejiort to the foundation due in September. 

John Hay Fellows Program Plans 
Institute For High School Teachers 

Birmingham Sees 
Risks In Writing 

Best known here for his two 
"Holiday" articles, "Are Fraterni- 
ties Necessary?" and "New Eng- 
land's Little Three," free-lance au- 
thor Stephen J. Birmingham '50. 
participated in the Journalism 
panel over Career Weekend. 

Birmingham made several ob- 
servations of value to aspiring au- 
tliors. Noting the small number of 
really prolific young writers today, 
he attributed this to a fear of 
making mistakes in public, com- 
mon to most beginners even after 
a successful first attempt. Because 
of this prevalent fear, claimed 
Birmingham many brilliant young 
authors never publish a second 

"Wrillns ... a gamble" 

"Writing is a bit of a gamble", he 
maintained. "To become a success- 
ful author one should be conscious 
of a lot of imponderables which 
you can't possibly predict." He fur- 
ther added that any newcomer 
must be prepared "to lay a couple 
of eggs." 

In answer to a question, Bir- 
mingham advised those interested 
in writing to live ii^ the New York 
area for "the first few years." A 
former advertising copywriter, he 
said that most young authors 
must have a "bread and butter" 
Job until they become established. 
Birmingham's first novel, "Young 
Mister Keefe", was published last 
year. He is currently occupied with 
his second novel, tentatively en- 
titled "Barbara Woodcock", which 
will be published by Little, Brown 
in August. Columbia Pictures has 
purchased the film rights in ad- 
vance of publication. 

From TIME, Inc., philosophy 

Curiosity ... a passion 

The Journalism panel stressed 
another aspect of this themt-. 
James A. Linen III '34, Publisher 
of "Time" magazine, called for de- 
dication to one's profession. "The 
journalist . . . must have curiosity 
about people and things and what 
makes them function. Unless this 
is a passion, don't bother with our 

Said John T. Tuttle '42, Editor 
and Publisher, Oneida (NY) "Daily 
Dispatch", "Newspaper work is a 
fascinating way of life. It repre- 
sents a chance to get out and do 
some good. It is a position of im- 
portance, a tremendous challenge." 

A Summer Institute in the Hu- 
manities, under the auspices of the 
John Hay Fellows Program, will 
be held at Williams this year. 

Approximately thirty high school 
teachers and ten public school ad- 
ministrators will take part in the 
program designed with a view to 
enrich their teaching and stimu- 
late creative, imaginative contri- 
butions to American education. 

During the four and a half week 
course the teachers and adminis- 
trators will participate in semi- 
nars which will read and discuss 
significant books and attend clas- 
ses for the study of literature, his- 
tory, and philosophy. 

The faculty of the Institute will 
consist of Moses Hadas, Jay Pro- 
fessor of Greek at Columbia Uni- 

The Summer Institute is an in- 
tegral part of the Program, which 
allows high school teachers to stu- 
dy in the Humanities for one aca- 
demic year. Participants will be 
chosen from schools which have 
already shown an interest in the 

Keller resigned as Chairman of 
the Hi.story Department last year 
in order to take over the John 
Hay Fellows' Program. He was for- 
merly instrumental in promoting 
the Advanced Placement Tests for 
the Educational Testing Service in 
Princeton, N. J. 

Trustees Give Eleven 
Promotions, Tenures 

The Trustees of Williams Col- 

I lege have given tenure to three 

versity and WilLams' Professors i members of the faculty and have 

Robert C. L. Scott, Fred H. Stock 
ing, and Robert G. L. Waite. Pro- 
fessors Whitney Stoddard and Ro- 
bert Barrow will lecture on art 
and music. 

John Hay Fellows 
The Summer Institute will be 
under the direction of Professor 
Stocking and Dr. Charles Keller, 
former chairman of the History 
Department, now Director of the 
John Hay Fellows' Program. At 
least two additional Institutes in 
the Humanities are planned for 
the summer of 1960. 

Dorsey Brothers Orchestra To Play Friday, 
Rock-And-Roll Concert To Spark Saturday 

Elections for class officers and 
college council representatives 
for the freshman, sophomore 
and junior classes will be held 
today In Baxter Hall from 1 
p.m. - 8 p.m. 

Each class will elect a presi- 
dent and secretary-treasurer. 
In addition, the freshman class 
will elect one CC representative, 
while the sophomore and jun- 
ior classes get two and three CC 
representatives, respectively. 

See page four for a list of 

promoted eleven. 

Promoted to associate professor 
with tenure are Harold H. War- 
ren, chemistry, and John H. Pow- 
er, economics. Giles Playfair was 
reappointed director of the AMT 
and professor of drama, with ten- 

Assistant Professors 

Promoted to assistant professor 
for three years from July are: 
John G. Sproat, history; Thomas 
Griswold, music; Monroe Z. Haf- 
ter, romantic languages; OrvlUe 
T. Murphy, Charles G. Nauert, his- 
tory; Laszlo G. Versenyl, philoso- 
phy; and Horace E. Delisser, Wil- 
liam F. McHenry, and William E. 

The telecast iNBC) is devoted to 
the teaching of physics to the mas- 
ses. An estimated 300,000 people 
watched the program by the end 
01 last year. 

Mass Effect 
There are a number of students 
and teachers who are presently be- 
ing tested for the effectiveness of 
the program; the effect, however, 
upon general public and industrial 
viewers has not so far been calcu- 
lated. This job of design, field 
work, and analysis has been sub- 
contracted to International Re- 
search Associates, Inc., one of the 
18 American survey organizations 
cooperating with the Center. 

Prom the thirteen cities with 
largest audiences, a random selec- 
tion will be made at various times 
throughout the second semester to 
determine the impact of the pro- 
gram. There will also be a chosen 
gi'oup of industrial workers inter- 
viewed, and selected guest lectur- 
ers on the program will be ques- 
tioned for their reactions. 
Data Obtained 
The study will try to answer such 
questions as the continuity of 
viewing, motivations behind the 
viewer, comparisons of "Continen- 
tal Classroom" as a course of study 
with other courses, comprehensi- 
bility of the subject matter and 
reaction to TV in general as a 
teaching device. 

Roper Center 
The Roper Center was estab- 
lished here in July 1957, and is 
one of 18 American survey re- 
search organizations and 25 for- 
eign organizations. It has com- 
pleted about four hundred pro- 
jects in the pohtical, economic, 
and social fields. Most frequent 
users of the data available are 

McCormick, physical education. 

Sabbatical leaves were granted I scholars in the social sciences, 70- 
to Lawrence W. Bealr professor of I 80 colleges and universities 
philosophy, and Robert G. L. I throughout the world, and teach-

Wesleyan Makes Plans To Expand; 
Considers Adopting 'College Plan' 


The Sophomore Council an- 
nounced Sunday that "fast rising 
rock-and-roll star" Larry Williams 
will headline the Saturday night 
musicale in Chapln Hall. He re- 
corded the hit songs "Short Pat 
Fanny" and "Bony Maronie." Al- 
so on the Chapin stage after 8:30 
will be Dicky Doo and the Don'ts 
("Click Clack" and "Let Me Cry"), 
and the Elegants (Little Star). 
Fraternity parties and a freshman 
dance round out Saturday even- 
ing. The original Dorsey orchestra 
with singer Jan Winters and led by 
Lee Castle will provide the music 
for the All-College Dance Friday. 
The Council also announced that 

a Winter Carnival Queen will be 
named Saturday morning by a 
group of Spring Street merchants 
who are kind enough to have do- 
nated several prizes. A single can- 
didate will be chosen by each fra- 
ternity and freshman entry. 

The blanket plan, under which 
All-College Dance tickets cost only 
$3 per couple, is available to fresh- 
man entries as well as the frater- 
nities. Tickets are $5 at the door. 
Soph Council members will sell 
tickets for the Rock-and-Roll con- 
cert during the week for $3.25 a 
couple; Saturday they will be $1.75 
per person. 

Wesleyan, the littlest member of 
the Little Three, is making plans 
tn expand, according to an an- 
nouncement made by President 
Victor Butterfield. 250 freshmen 
wi.l be admitted next fall and by 
1954 the enrollment should hit 
1000; the present enrollment is 

Niw dormitories will house the 
new students, although there will 
be no special increase in faculty. 
"Even with the increase in the 
student body a very desirable stu- 
dent-faculty ratio of 8-1 will be 
maintained," stated Executive Vice 
President John Macy. 

College Plan 

A proposed plan to divide Wes- 
leyan University into colleges and 
to Introduce an educational sys- 
tem based on tutorials has been 
released by a subcommittee of the 
Educational Policy Committee for 
discussion and criticism. President 
Butterfield states its objective: 
"To help the student acquire more 
rapidly the independence and curi- 
osity which assure that he will 
continue his liberal education all 
his life." 

The individual colleges, stipu- 
lates the plan, should be largely 
autonomous in administering their 
educational programs but would be 
directly responsible to the Presi- 
dent of the Univ. Recommended 
in connection with the college plan 
is the establishment of a Center 
of Humanistic Studies which 
would bring together several dis- 
tinguished persons to reside at 
Wesleyan for a short term of up 
to three years. 

Each college would have its own 
faculty, student body, set of con- 
centration programs, offices and 
classrooms, and a measure of so- 
cial unity; each would have a tea- 
cher for every 10 or 12 students 
and would represent several areas 
of knowledge. 

Under such a plan the student 
would spend freshman year on a 
broad liberal program. He would 
then enter a college and select 
the concentration program best 
suited to his major interests and 
aptitudes, spending half his time 
on his field of concentration and 
' half in general education.

NOBODY really seems to know much about the

location of the IBM machine that sorts frater-

CAREER Weekend is behind us. 
NUMBERS of alumni and personnel men work- 
ed with Manton Copeland, Jr. and Bill Tuacb 
'59, to revise and refine the program in such a 
way as to make it informative and interesting to 
jiractically everyone, 

THEIR effort was successful. Particularly worth- 
while were the public interviews of job candi- 
dates and the over-all organization and atmos- 
jjhere of tbe jjanels in various career fields, A 
specific defect might be that the committee in- 
vited so many intere.sted townsjieople and alum- 
ni to the mock job interviews that students were 
turned away for lack of space, 

THE actual influence of a Career Weekend on 
undergraduates might be questioned by some. 
What stands out, however, as the primary asset 
is tbe increased undergraduate-alumni contact 
fostered by it. Innovations will continue to be 
necessary in order to keep the weekend inter- 
esting but Mr. Copeland and his as.sociates should 
be fully credited for a fine contribution toward 
informed graduate placement.

IT all started in November. Williams was lumped 
together with Union, R,P,I,, Skidmore, Russel 
Sage, Albany State Teachers, and Bennington in 
a curious grouji known evidently by some as 
the "college triangle". The first notice of this 
appeared in the RECORD itself, masked as a 
lecture notice, 

AND now we're left out. A January issue of the 
Trinitti Tripod refers to the Smith-Amherst-Hol- 
yoke-Nlass State "New College" as the fifth col- 
lege in Western Massachusetts. Count up. Where 
does Williams come in? 

ADIEU to our historic alliance with Wesleyan 
and Amherst, We have been sold out by subver- 
sive and irresponsible elements. And there were

I would like to welcome yon to tiie reader-

tertaining. The word is that it may even be ac-

all unusual names with whomever knows how

There is a writer named Corey Ford who 
in some publication within die last year deplored 
the fact that wc ( he was sjjeaking of Americans, 
I think) found ourselves in 1958 quite unable to 
laugh at ourselves. It is now, of course, 1959 and 
if anything we take ourselves witli even more 
excruciating seriousness. There seems, for in- 
stance to be no material difference between the 
presidency of the Gargoyle Society and the Pre- 
sidency of tlie United States. Botli office-holders 
have immense weights bearing down upon them 
daily. Of course, the Gargoyle president doesn't 
ever tell you what he is thinking about; all his 
information is "classified." Fortunately too, the 
President (of the U. S.) is cleared for confiden- 
tial facts but he at least is able to undergo a few 
press conferences when anyone admitt'-d to tbe 
room is welcome to find out what he can. 

Those of my distinguished audience who 
have been infected with the modern seriousness 
which regards evcnithing as an acute crisis or 
a vindictive attack: 1 am glad to state that the 
above is merely a test of your S. Q. (a new term 
in economics, I am told, with no meaning). If 
you thought that was a vindictive attack against 
Len Grey, check your sense of humor tbe next 
time you go to the garage. 

And when you do go, make them wash the 
back window too. They say the service stations 
are trying to have the first part of their name

"Ihmfool H(ii/ with ri„,l:.") 


It happens every day, A yonns man goes off to collp(je IcaviiiK 
his home-town sweetlieiirt witli vows of ctonial love, and then 
he finds that he has outgrown her. What, in such cases, is tlie 
honorai)le thinp; to do? 

Well sir, you can do what Rock SifiMfoiis did. 

When Rock left Cut luul Slioot, I'm., lu's.'iid to his sweetheart, 
a simple country lass named 'I'css dTrlicrxillcs, "My dear, 
though I lun far away in cnlli'iic, I will icivc you always, I will 
never look iit anotlier girl. If I do, may my cvehalls |iMrch and 
wither, may my viscera writlie like adders, may the nicitlis (i;et 
my new tweed jaek<'t!" 

Then he clutched Tess to his bosom and |)huite(l a fiiiiil kiss 
upon her fraKrant yonii'i- skull and went away, meaning with 
all his heart to be faithful. 


But on the very first day of college he met a coed named Fata 
Morgana, a girl of such sophistication, such poise, such suvoir 
faire. as I{iick liad never beheld. She spoke knowingly of Franz 
Kafka, she hummed Mozart, she smoked Marlboros, the ciga- 
rette with l)Mt:r "ymikin's". Now, Rock didn't know I'Vanz 
Kafka from I'inocchio, or IMozart from James K. Polk, but 
Mariboros he knew full well. He knew that anyone who smoked 
Marlboros was modern and advanced and us studded with 
brains as a ham with cloves. Good sense tells you that you can't 
beat Marlhoro's new improved filter, and you never could beat 
Marlboro's fine flavor. This lioek kn(>w. 

So all day he followed Fata around campus and listened to 
her talk about Franz Kafka, and then in the evening he went 
back to the dormitory and found this letter from liis home-town 
sweetheart Tess; 

Dear Rock, 

Us kids had a keen time yestrnla;/. We irenl down to th* 

pond and caught some, frotjs. I caught the most of anybody. 

Then ive hitched rides on Inirks and did lots of nidsy stuff 

like that. Well, I musl dose now because I yol to whitewash 

the fence. „ , . , 

Your friend, 


P.S. . . . I can do my Tlula Hoop 3,000 times. 

Well sir, Rock thought about Tess and tiicii he thought about 
Fata and then a great sadness fell upon him. Suddenly he knew 
he had outgrown young, innocent Tess; his lieart now belonged 
to smart, sophisticated I'^ata. 

Rock, i)eing above all things honorable, returned forthwith 
to his home town and walked uj) to Tess and looked lier in the 
eye and said manfully, "I do not love you nny more. I love 
a girl named Fata Morgana. You can liit me in the stomach with 
all your might if you like." 

"That's okay, hey," said Tess amiably. "I don't love you 
neither. I found a new boy." 

"Wliat is his name'?" asked Rock. 

"Franz Kafka," said Tess. 

"A splendid fellow," said Hock and shook Tess'g hand and 
they have remained Rood friiuids to this day. In fact, Rock and 
Fata often double-date with Franz and Tess and have heaps 
of fun. Franz can do the Hula Hooj) 6,000 times.

AAU Record Breaker 







:j& ARPELS' 


I often remember old partie.s I have gone to, the 
people present, and their foibles. For example, there 
is the one Heather Goquickly gave, some years ago, 
in her tiny Manhattan apartment. 

A line formed in front of her place at six o'clock; it 
was almost seven before 1 stood, cold can of Schaefer 
beer in hand, in a crowded corner of the apartment. 
I watched Heather flying smoothly over the up- 
turned heads of her adoring claque (a stagehand- 
friend had put up one of those wire rigs one associates 
with ornate television productions of Peter Pan), 
dispensing Schaefer-largesse and pointing out chairs 
to the most elderly of her guests. 
A creep shouted up at Heather. His head was huge- 
big, and he was wearing stilts; without them, one 
might have thought him a Dwarf Person. Words 
came out of his mouth like machine-gun bullets: 
"Rat-a-tat-tat; tat-tat: and tat," he said, handing 
Heather her three-stringed dulcimer, which she 
played very well. Strumming it, she began to sing 
the happy air so popular to- ^ ^ ^^ 

day: What d'ya hear in the ^ " 
best of circles? "Schaefer all 
around!" Then she landed 
beside me and wistfully 
drank my beer. "How trh, 
tris!" she sighed in her 
happy-sad voice. 

"Me or the Schaefer?" 
"Both of you, darling. You remind me of my brother 
Ed; the Schaefer, that's easy: it's got a smooth round 
flavor; never sharp, never flat." A tiger cub jumped 
into Heather's arms. She handed him to me. "You 
keep him Ed, or darling, or whoever you are; I think 
I'm off for Tangier now." Taking only a can of 
Schaefer, she was gone. 

I've heard from her just once: a post card scribbled 
in Swahili. Of course, the tiger grew too big, and I 
had to let him go. I've seen him .since, though; he's 
found a proper home wit h a traveling circus. I hope 
Heather has too. 





Eph Puckman Drop 6-4 Encounter; 
Toronto Nips Varsity Squash, 5-4 

AAU mark, and one pool .standaid 
in the New England AAU Champ- 
ionship swimming meet held at the 
Lasell Pool last Friday night lor 
the benefit of the Pan-American 

In the feature event of the even- 
ing, Williams soph Buck Robin- 
son, touted as an All-American 
candidate, outswam Amherst Col- 
lege captain Bill Jones in the New 
England senior 220 yd. breast- 
stroke championship. His time, 
2:45.7, lowered the previous New 
England mark by 7 seconds. Ro- 
binson also has pending the New 
England intercollegiate breast- 
stroke mark which Jones holds. 

Another New England record was 
shattered by Williams' Neil De- 
vaney '61, in the New England 100 
yd. butterfly championship. De- 
vaney recorded a 59.6 to erase the 
old 1;02.4 mark. 

Freestyle Relay 

The Williams freestyle relay 
team, swimming with no other 
competition than the many stop- 
watches on them, succeeded in 
eclipsing the New England stan- 
dard, and also established a new 
college and pool record. The team 
of Don Lum '59, Neil Devaney, 
Frosh captain John Haslett, and 
varsity captain Chip Ide smashed 
the AAU mark of 3:37.6 and shad- 
ed the 3:31.8 pool record with a 
3:31.3 for the 400 yards. 

The Massachusetts state AAU 
backstroke mark fell to Henry Ta- 
tem '58, who covered the 200 yd. 
distance in 2:20.8. Terry Allen '61, 
placed second. 

The meet also featured a seri- 
ous and comedy diving display by 
Williams varsity diver Bob Reeves 
'61, and BiU Leckie '62. 


Considerably weakened without 
two of its top four players, the 
varsity squash team lost a tight 
5-4 match against Toronto Fri- 
day. Winning in close matches for 
Williams were Greg Tobin, Sam 
Davis, Bruce Brian, and Chuck 

At number one position Greg 
Tobin defeated Massey, a very 
talkative and humorous opponent, 
16-13, 15-12, 14-15, 16-14. Tobin 
was especially effective with his 
fine crosscourt backhand. In ad- 
dition, he had developed the abil- 
ity to save seemingly lost points 
on the backhand side by cocking 
his wrist and playing his shot from 
behind his back. 

Number 3 

Toronto's Smith was too strong 
for Co-Captain Ernie Fleishman 
at number two. The short, agile 
Canadian with a crooked forehand 
drive blasted the ball lower and 
harder than his opponent in this 
battle of lefthanders. Fleishman 
played well but was not able to 
recover short balls so adeptly. 

Tobin — d. — Massey 3-1 

Fleishman — 1.— Smith 3-0 

Buck— 1.— Ireton 3-0 

Schaefer — 1. — Weynerowski 3-2 
Davis — d. — H. Malcolmson 3-2 
Miller — 1. — Acheson 3-1 

Brian — d. — Bryce 3-1 

Smith— d.— Schiller 3-2 

Thayer — 1. — S. Malcolmson 3-1 


The Williams varsity hockey 
team fought a hard uphill game 
last Saturday before losing by a 
6-4 score to Colby on a wind- 
swept rink at Williamstown. 

Colby opened very fast with 
three goals in the first period. 
Forechecking strongly, they con- 
trolled the puck in the Eph zone, 
bottling up the Williams offense. 
It looked like Colby's game all the 
way until about 13 minutes of the 
second period. Playing with a man 
down, Williams cleared the puck 
the length of the ice. After it 
went center Larry Hawkins, who 
beat the Colby defense in a close 
race, got his stick on the puck, 
and slipped it into the cage for 
the first Eph tally. 

Ephs Take Lead 
The goal by Hawkins .seemed to 
change the whole complexion of 
the game. Coming back strong, 
Williams scored again at 17:55 of 
the second period on a shot by 
George Lowe. The third period .saw 
the drive continue as Bob Lowden 
and Hawkins both scored to make 
it Williams 4 - Colby 3. 

But the Colby line was not to 
be stopped. Boardman tied it up 
only two minutes after Hawkins' 
goal and repeated the effort at 
18:10 to put Colby back into the 
lead. Eight seconds befoi'e the fi- 
nal buzzer. Church dumped in the 
insurance goal to make the final 
totals 6-4.

After an 8-1 loss to Harvard in

Hyland, is a slight favorite over 
Deerfield. Other team members are 
Mike Keating, Bob Rubin, Fred

Bill McCormick, rates the two 
teams about even going into the 
game, but gives Williams a slight 

Two Williams men, John Reid 
and Tom Bachman, will be side- 
lined, but otherwise the squad 
should be back in shape after the 
mid-semester break. The starting 
lineup will be goalie Ham Brown, 
first defensemen John Roe and 
Prank Ward, first line wings Mark 
Comstock and Bill Beadie. and 
center Peter Marlowe.

CC Urges Heavy 
Voting Today At 
Baxter Hall Polls 

Retiring College Council Presi- 
dent Jack Hyland emphasized 
Monday that students should con- 
sider "respect for ( the candidates' ) 
character and judgment" when 
voting for their class officers and 
Council representatives today. 
Good Government 

He pointed out that most of the 
decisions of a representative body 
are made without consulting the 
whole electorate. In elections, the 
students have an opportunity to 
choose people in whose judgment 
they have confidence. He said tliat 
if the large majority of students 
use this means to express them- 
selves, the Council will be "more 

In the past three years, about 
75 per cent of the school has voted 
in class elections. The freshmen 
always seem to show most interest 
while the juniors are statistically 
most apathetic. 

Good Candidates 

In an effort to present "a strong 
slate" of candidates for considera- 
tion at the polls, the Council 
members have unofficially tried to 
interest men they feel would make 
responsible representatives. Oper- 
ating as impartially as possible, 
the members have used their ex- 
perience on the Council as a basis 
for encouraging classmates to pe- 
tition for nomination. 

Any candidate receiving 40 sig- 
natures on a petition circulated on 
his behalf was placed on the bal- 
lot. Voting is by preferential rat- 
ing rather than for specific of-

C:lia|)iii Hall aiKlicncc Tuesday i 
theoi-ies of modern capitalism. 
Slrachey, an active member of the 
Labor Party, and Galbraitli, au- 
thor of "The Affluent Society," 
centered their discus.sion on the 
applicability of the theory of clas.s 
conflicts to the contemporary po- 
litical situation. 

Strachey spoke first, expressing 
.surprise that the "nice, cozy, lit- 
tle seminar" group he had ex- 
pected had been too large for Je- 
sup Hall. Turning to economics, 
Strachey asserted that con- 
flict is still the basis for political 
action. The last twenty years have 
shown that class conflict does not 
necessarily lead to class war. 
Where democracy can "make its 
economics work," he said, it set- 
tles the inevitable class conflicts 
by civilized means. 

Galbraith complimented Stra- 
chey on his ability to change the 
topic immediately from the eco- 
monic realm to the political. He 
stated that in today's "affluent so- 
ciety" there is agreement upon 
the basic "social condition" — a 
state of "close to full employ-

William J. Smith has been nam- 
ed lecturer in English. He earned 
his A. B. at Washington Univer- 
sity in 1939 and his M. A. there 
in 1941, winning a Rhodes in 
1947. In 1957 his "Poems 1947- 
1957" won a National Book Award.

CC Holds Elections; 
Juniors Pick Rorke 

Bob Rorke, Eric Widmer, and 
Phil Wirth have been elected pre- 
sidents of the junior, sophomore, 
and freshman classes, respectively. 

Secretary-Treasurer of the jun- 
ior class is Al Martin, while Keith 
Griffin, Cotton Fite, and Fay Vin- 
cent are CC representatives. Soph- 
omore secretary-treasurer is Keck 
Jones, and Tom Fox and Paul 
Mersereau are CC representatives. 
Secretary-treasurer of the fresh- 
men is Ash Crosby, and John Has- 
lett will sit on the CC. 

Said Rorke: "Aware of the lim- 
ited function of student govern- 
ment, I still feel that during the 
course of the academic year, many 
occasions arise where it Is neces- 
sary to have people who represent 

the student body — who can accur- 
ately reflect student opinion. The 
class officer, too, is important for 
his function as a liaison officer 
between the administration and 
the student body." 

Widmer said, "While the sopho- 
more class is now primarily fra- 
ternity-oriented, I hope that we 
can retain some vestige of 
identification. The class officers 
are confident that our class in- 
terests will not be neglected." 

"One of the prime objectives of 
the new council", said Wirth, 
"will be to keep up the fine spirit 
exemplified this year in athletic 
contests, class activities, and schol- 
astic achievement."

Dean Points To Need 
For More SC Power 

Dean and Mrs. Robert R. R. 
Brooks were guests of the College 
Council at dinner Monday night 
at the Williams Inn. It was the 
final meeting of the 1958 Council. 

Asked by CC President Jack 
Hyland to say a few words. Brooks 
assayed the progress of the Col- 
lege Council as an institution over 
the four years of its existence 
"For the first time ... the CC has 
become clearly the most import- 
ant body in student government." 
At its inception, he pointed out. 
most observers of the college scene 
felt that the fraternity presidents 
would remain the real basis of po- 
litical power in undergraduate af- 

"I am glad to see that the CC 
has finally come of age," he said. 
The Dean pointed out, however 
that he felt both the fraternity 
council (SO and the CC have a 
valuable and important role in 
student affairs. Neither should be 
over-emphasized, he said. 

"In the next year," Brooks con- 
cluded, "I should think it might 
be a wise idea to increase to a 
certain extent the functions and 
responsibilities of the Social

In an effort to obtain both the 
highest calibre athlete and the 
best student possible, the Williams 
admissions and coaching staffs 
have been hard at work speaking 
and interviewing at high schools 
and prep schools. 

Head football coach Len Wat- 
ters' many visits range from small 
towns such as Saugerties, New 
York, and Natconga, New Jersey, 
to the large cities of Philadelphia 
and Chicago. Dean of Admissions 
Frederick Copeland and his as- 
sistant Peter Pelham have travel- 
ed from coast to coast this past 

Purpose of Trips 

The purpose of these trips is 
not only to interview prospective 
students for the Class of '63, but 
also to create a self-perpetuating 
interest in Williams. According to 
Coach Watters, this is done by 
means of a Father and Son din- 
ner. In this way, Williams repre- 
sentatives have been able to ad- 
dress groups of up to 200 people, 
usually including eight to ten pro- 
spective freshmen. Films of the 
Amherst or Tufts football games 
are usually shown. To satisfy all 
interests Copeland, Pelham, and 
Watters have endeavored to give 
a complete picture of campus life 

In the final analysis, athlete or 
not, each individual candidate is 
chosen solely on academic ability, 
with scholarships determined by 

ability and need. Witli this as a 
basis for admissions, "quotas" per- 
taining to numbers of athletes, ge- 
ographical distribution of candi- 
dates, and per cent of high school 
candidates represented are vir- 
tually non-existent. 

This year Pelham has asserted 
that, although he and Copeland 
will have visited more high schools 
than prep schools, admissions 
goals include a class with varied 
interests. High schools and prep 
schools will be equally represent- 
ed as well as an area roughly sim- 
ilar to the 32 states and one ter- 
ritory delineated by the Class of

editorial and sports staff posi- 
tions will be interviewed under 
the direction of News Editor 
Toby Smith and Associate News

New School Plan 
Up For Approval 

A proposed $2,200,000 Mount 
Greylock Regional District School 
comes up for final approval of the 
WiUiamstown and Lanesboro com- 
munities next fall. 

If the bond issue is passed, con- 
struction will begin immediately. 
Plans call for the opening of at 
least part of the school in the fall 
of 1960. The district school com- 
mittee is presently in the process 
of securing an architect and ob- 
taining an option on some land. 
Division of Cost 
The state will pay for fifty-five 
per cent of the construction cost 
while WiUiamstown will pay sev- 
enty-five per cent and Lanesboro 
twenty-five per cent of the re- 

The new school will meet the 
need for a better educational sys- 
tem by overcoming the problems of 
increased enrollment and class- 
room shortage. The WiUiamstown 
students are presently attending 
double sessions while the Lanes- 
boro students go to school in Pitts- 

Under the proposed plan cen- 
tral facilities will be able to ac- 
commodate 1,200 students in 
grades seven through twelve. The 
location has not yet been deter- 
mined, but will be within two miles 
of South WiUiamstown. 

Over 100 sophomores gathered 
in the Rathskeller of the Student 
Union Wednesday night for the 
opening of the Purple Key Com- 
petition. Steve Lewis, compet di- 
rector, outlined the program that 
will run up to Gargoyle tap day in 
May when the new Key members 
wiU be named. 

The Purple Key Society is en- 
tering its fourth year of current 
organization since it was revamped 
in 1956. The Society is currently

Inst. Little Discusses 
Renaissance Germany 

German instructor William A. 
Little pointed to the combined 
foi'ces of religious, linguistic, and 
pohtical disunity as the chief cau- 
ses of Germany's literary "Dark 
Age" during the Renaissance of 
her Western European neighbors. 
His lecture, "German Literature: 
The Big Sleep", is part of a regu- 
lar series of faculty lectures. 
Massed Disunities 
Little carefully stated that al- 
though certain disunities existed 
individually in other countries dur- 
ing their greatest literary periods, 
the interaction of these disunities 
led to the stagnancy of German 
literature. The situation was fur- 
ther complicated by Germany's 
position as the battleground of Eu- 
rope during this period. 

Aside from ruining many Ger- 
man cities, the wars caused the 
return of culture to the court. The 
court patterned its literature on 
contemporary French culture. It 
even refused to recognize the Ger- 
man Language.

eight members attempt to consider proposals 
for speakers which come before them. Often, 
they know little about the name presented and 
a student is delegated to find out more about 
the man. The committee writes to a large num- 
ber of possible speakers, most of whom decline 
to accejDt the "honorarium" of $200 - $300, say- 
ing that for one reason or another thev find 
themselves unable to speak. Estalilishing contact 
takes work, jjatience and peiser\erence. 

DIFFICULTIES have been and continue to lie 
manifold. The chairmen, William H. Edgar '59 
and Professor Fred Stocking, aie very busy i>eo- 
ple. They have a very limited amount of time to 
devote to the job of investigating and engag;ing 

BUT, these ameliorating circumstances do not 
mean that the Lectine Committee is doing; its 
best. It is inefficient; investigations often con- 
sist of one comment by a jiersonal friend of the 
possible lecturer. Moreover, the lecturers en- 
gaged are most often of a poorer qiialitv than 
those available at Williams. 

NOBODY can comiilain that Williams students 
are disinterested in the "cultural advantai^e.s" 
available on the campus until the offerings be- 
come truly an adjvmct to our education.

galbraith & strachey 

TWO ])olitical economists took the stantl in 
Clia|iin Ihdl this week before an enthusiastic 
audience of 734-half of them students. 

SHOWMANSHIP was brilliantly disjilayed by 
borii sjit^akers. both had a sense of humor which 
made the hall resound often with laughter. Tbey 
knew their audience. Hardly anybody became 
enlightened about the intricacies of economics. 
They were all entertained. 

GALBRAITH and Strachey formed one of the 
few successful ])rograins sponsored in the last 
few years by the Lectnrc> Committee. Afternoon 
seminars went into the details of their two view- 
points i<f economics; the hour and a half of 
(|tiestions after the lecture brought out some 
other interesting information. 

TO'l'Al.LY, it was excellent. 



The day was January 30. The year was 1959 
and everythiug is now as it was then except you 
are there. It was High Noon in Williamstown, 

It was a day like any day. Everything was 
((uiet and serene for it was at this time that 
Wyatt Earp would emerge from the shadows, 
just as he had each dav for the past three years, 
and stride confidently down a dusty and sun- 
drenched S]iring Street. He mo\ed with the 
painstaking care and iiolished finesse of a hun- 
gry panther in search of game— but today there 
was reflected in his lean features a ininiscule 

And then, almost as if by fate the sun's rays, 
dclleeted hv a dark and ominous cloud, cast an 
eerie glow as out of a nearby cafe step]ied Slue- 
foot Sue. Slowly, cautiously, she drew closer to 
him, her every movement one of perfect grace. 
He faced her for a moment, trembled, even 
melted, before the defiant stare and, summoning 
every ounce of strengUi and courage from deep 
within him, be demanded a duel— the date, Feb- 
ruary 6— the i:)lace, Williams College— tlie event, 
Williams College Houseparties. 

As he stood facing her he knew that he 
had met his match and the words fell thick 
and heavy as he s]ioke. But this is the story of 
that a<fe-old battle between man and woman 
and hoped with a strong, even vigorous hope that 
she would be present to resume one jihase of 
that eternal struggle.

Eisen pointed out differences in 
Canadian and American education 
techniques. He noted primarily the 
extra year of high school which 
the students attend. Using the 
University of Toronto as an ex- 
ample, Eisen explained that the 
course set-up differs from that al 
Williams in being a combination 
of large lectures and small tu- 

"Instead of assigned work, the 
students receive at the besinning 
of the semester an enormous read-

pected to do independent and sup- 
plementary work on the subject of 
the course. One set of exams is 
given at the end of the year which 
covers the lectures and the out-

'59 Winter Carnival 

The Sophomore Council has 
planned and managed this Win- 
ter Carnival weekend. They ar- 
ranged to have the Fabulous Dor- 
sey Band play in the Rathskeller 
Friday night and assembled the 
talent for the rock-and-roll show 
Saturday, most of this being done 
before the change in Dartmouth's 
scheduling became known. 

Even without the skiing events, 
traditionally poorly attended, there 
is enough to do in Williamstown 
this weekend. If the sports events, 
parties and other happenings 
chronciled in the weekend schedule 
fall to excite interest, one can al- 
ways follow P. B. Tacy's advice. 
Unmentioned in the schedule is 
an excellent exhibit of modern 
French posters in the Lawrence 
Art Museum including Mire, Ma- 
tisse, Toulouse -Lautres, and Le- 
Corbusier, among others. Some of 
them are for sale, at prices near 
those of Williams scarves.

Freshman Plans 

The Freshman Council has a- 
gain scheduled its own activities, 
in addition to the All-College 
Dance, for Winter Houscparties 

The frosh plans feature dancing 
and free beer in the Rathskeller 
Saturday evening. Music will be 
provided by the Cole Quartet of 
Hoosick Falls, N. Y.. with enter- 
tainment by the Purple Herd. 

A freshman queen, to be chosen 
by the junior advisers, will be 
announced at the dance. She and 
her escort will receive gifts from 
'ocal merchants. 

As a gesture of welcome fresh- 
men will present their dates with 
a letter of introduction and sou- 
vi-nir matchbooks printed with 
Class of 1962, Winter Hou.separ- 
lies, 1959". 

Blanket Plan 

The sophomores, in an effort to 
reduce the financial burden of 
Houseparties have offered the 
freshmen the option of buying en- 
try blanket tickets for the All- 
College Dance. Under this plan, if 
every member of an entry intends 
to buy a ticket, then the entry may 
buy a blanket ticket, which would 
reduce the cost per person from 
five to three dollars. 

Hours in freshman dorms will 
be the same as those of Pall 
Houseparties. Pi-iday and Saturday 
night hours will be extended to 
2 a.m., continuing before and after 
but not including hours of sche- 
duled activities.

Winter Weekend 
Required Reading 

by P. B. Tacy 

Someone made the comment the 
other day that winter carnival just 
tsn't what it used to be. 

Poh! Absurd! 

Skiing, hockey, etc., are mere 
icing on the cake. Winter carnival 
is its own form of indoor sport. It 
involves simply a team of two; an 
eager Eph and a bimby lany will 
do, thanx.) The game is as com- 
plicated as the players want to 
make it. 

The challenge in the game is to 
distinguish the variety of said fe- 
male and choose appropriate tackle 
before she realizes that the lure Is, 
after all, artificial. 

Following are excerpts from 
Chap. 7, "Species and Lures," from 
A Handy Guide to Berkshire 
Fauna. (Ed. note: as yet unpub- 
lished) It is fairly inclusive; the 
only accessories unspecified are a 
glib tongue, sporting zest and a 
mind seething with imagination. 

11) Species Scholastica Home- 
townum. A minnow variety. Dis- 
tinguished by speckles about face 
and a gaping jaw. An uninventive 
but stubborn fighter. Often singu- 
larly attached to mother of spe- 
cies. an Athletic Special on 
this one, played fairly shallow. 
This type becomes extraordinarily 
communicative when back in na- 
tural habitat, thus requiring fi- 
nesse lest chances for entire spe- 
cies be lost. 

(2) Species Scholastica Prep- 
pus. A slightly more sporting min- 
now. Distinguished from Home- 
townum by more rakish appear- 
ance and cxcsssive facial colouring 
when confronted with new situa- 
tions, such as the really earnest 
angler to whom Hometownum is 
more accustomed. Inclined to odd 
behaviour such as outright imita- 
tion of older fish and fits of gig- 
gling. Bait here is a Tweed Spe- 
cial; or, if she seems to have been 
hooked earlier and fought free, a 
Super Father. Not big game, but a 
fine panfish. Generally found in 
Eastern United States. Migrates to 
Bermuda in March, early April. 

(31 Species Collegia Ivianum. 
This is a real Abounds 
in this area. Markedly alike in ap- 
pearance. The younger variety bear 
much similarity to the two pre- 
ceding types; those of middle age 
must he taken on different tackle. 
First try either a Golden Aristo- 
crat or a Tweed-hackled Sport; if 
no results, a Barman's Nightmare

For CGA Match 

The varsity wrestling team faces 
a strong Coast Guard Academy 
team tomorrow at 2:00 pm in La- 
sell Gymnasium. 

Highlight of the afternoon 
should be a match between Coast 
Guard's Dave Cibelle, who has not 
lost a match in three years, and 
Williams Captain Kuhrt Wieneke. 
Wieneke was undefeated in dual 
meet competition at 137 last year 
and has twice been a New England 

Smith, Hatcher 

Other outstanding lettermen for 
Williams are .junior Stew Smith 
and senior Bob Hatcher. Wrestling 
at 130, Smith has won both his 
matches this year by first period 

Hatcher, a New England Cham- 
pion in the heavyweight division 
last year, fought to a draw against 
tough Ray Fisher of Tufts and 
pinned his man in last Tuesday's 
match against U. Mass. 
Other Weights 

Williams has been weakened by 
the loss of outstanding men in the 
157 and 167 divisions. Filling in at 
these weights will probably be 
Sophomores Bill Penny and Tom 

At 147 will be Harry Bowdoln, 
who convincingly decisioned his 
Tufts opponent 9-0, and at 177 
will be Ted Sage. The 123 spot will 
be filled by either sophomore Dean 
Howard or junior Wally Matt. 

Frank R. Thorns Jr., Director

Include Sykes, Smith 

In a Monday meeting, the 1959-

Morton at center and Captain Pete 
Willmott, Bob Parker, and George 
Boynton alternating at the guards. 
Also slated to see a lot of action 
are Bill Hedeman and J. B. Morris.

Varsity Wrestlers Conquer UMass 
As Smith, Hatcher, Wieneke Excel 

by Wiillti Mall 
Coiulitioninf^ made the difference as the varsity wrestHng 
team defeated the University of Massachusetts for its second vic- 
tory of the year hist Tuesday. Outstanding in the 20-13 win were 
junior Stew Smith and seniors 
Bob Hatcher and Kuhrt Wieneke. 

Smith pinned his opponent in 1 
minute, 52 seconds of the first 
period. It was the second time, in 
as many matches this year, that 
he has won his match in less than 
two minutes. 

Hatcher, Wieneke 

Heavyweight Hatcher came 
through with a pin early in the 
second period to win the match 
for Williams. Up to that point the 
match had been pretty close, and 
■Williams held only a scant 15-13 
lead going into the contest. 

Captain Wieneke, wrestling at 
137, did not pin his man but came 
very close in the third period. He 
defeated his opponent by the large 
margin of 13-1. 

Losers Outstanding 

Two of the most inspiring mat- 
ches of the day were ones which 
Williams lost. At 157, Bill Penny 
did a fine job against U. Mass.' 
Stowell, a New England Champ- 
ion last year. The score was 5-1 
and Penny finished strong by 
scoring an escape in the last peri- 

At 167, Tom DeGray, wrestling 
against Massorilli of U. Mass, made 
up in sheer desire what he lacked 
in ability. Although he lost a 4-1 
decision, his far more experienced 
opponent was unable to pin him.

Frosh Cagemen Victors; 
Rally To Top Springfield 

Rallying in the last five min- 
utes after a scrappy Springfield 
squad had erased a fifteen point 
deficit, the Williams freshman 
basketball team downed the Cubs, 
73-66, Tuesday night. 

The Ephs unleashed an out- 
standing offensive drive in the 
first half, racking up 48 points 
and coasting to a commanding 
lead. In the second half, however, 
the tide turned. Springfield caught 
fire, while the Ephmen were un- 
able to shake a cold spell. With 
five minutes to play, it was an 
even game. Clutch Eph shooting 
in the final minutes sealed the 

Equalling his 21 point per game 
average. Bob Mahland led the 
Williams scorers.

Defeat In Squash 

Approximately 120 students 
turned out Monday night to watch 
Princeton thwart Williams' at- 
tempted repeat of last year's 
squash upset. The Ephs won three 
of four very close 3-2 matches, but 
the opposition prevailed 5-4. 

The most talented performer in 
the East, Steve Vehslage, who cur- 
riintly ranks first nationally in the 
juniors and eighth in men's com- 
p: tition, and Greg Tobin provided 
some of the finest squash of the 
season. Veh.slage won 15-8, 15-13, 
15-13, but not until Tobin had giv- 
-■n a creditable account of himself. 
iWoves Well 

Moving about the court fluently 
and rapidly, Vehslage exhibited the 
same power, timing, and footwork 
which carried him to victory over 
OUie Stafford in New York City 
a year ago December. Only in 
shooting corners and in executing 
the Germantown, however, did 
Vehslage clearly surpass Tobin. 
Whereas the Williams player pres- 
sed too hard, the Princeton ace 
rarely allowed his ball to come oft 
the third wall.

Frosh Swimmers Defeat 
Hotcfikiss In Close Meet 

The Williams freshman swim- 
ming team fought from behind to 
overcome a stubborn Hotchkiss 
team, 46-40, Tuesday, at the 
Hotciikiss pool. 

A narrow victory by the 200 
yard medley relay team of Robin 
Durham, Charley Kurtz, Steve 
Fowle, and John Haslett raised the 
Purple to within a point of their 
opponents. Ken Hoose, Dave Mel- 
iencamp. Bob Panuska, and Tom 
Herschbach then combined for the 
200 yd. freestyle relay laurels and 
the Williams triumph. 

Individual firsts were recorded 
by Panuska in the 50 yd. free- 
style, Durham in the 100 yd. back- 
stroke, and Haslett in the 100 yd. 
freestyle. Place finishes by Paul 
Dernier in the 100 yd. butterfly 
and the 150 yd. individual medley, 
Herschbach in the 200 yd. free- 
style, and diver Bill Leckie, kept 
the squad in contention for the 
down-to-the-wire finish. 

Hotchkiss' star was Carol Kon- 
nard, who set a new Hotchkiss 
record in the 100 yd. butterfly with 
a time of 1:00.7. 

This hard-earned win was the 
third straight victory for the still- 
undefeated Ephmen. 

Varsity Hoikey Squad Defeats UMass 7-2; 
Hawkins, Fisher Contribute 2 Goals Apiece 

A fired-up Williams varsity hock- 
ey team turned a tight home game 
into a 7-2 rout by scoring 5 goals 
in the final period against the U- 
niversity of Massachusetts on 

Although they were outplayed, 
the UMass sextet drew first blood 
when a defensive lapse allowed Bill 
Ryan to convert Art Steven's pass 
into a goal at 14:40 of the first 
period. Williams continued to press 
its rivals, but Al Lapey was called 
upon to stop several solo shots as 
UMass wings slipped through the 
Eph defense.

Outgoing CC president Jack Hy-

Report following the elections. He 
discussed the accomplishments of 
his Council, and slcetched the 
broad outlines of student govern- 
ment action: 

"The strength of the organiza- 
tion rests on its ability to use past 
experience in malcing future de-

tion of the incoming Council to 
examine the goals and direction 
of the preceding Council, and on 
this basis build a stronger, more 
efficient student government. 

"The present Council made an 
effort to brancii out into the many 
phases of undergraduate life. Many 
of the branches are still tentative;

the installation within the semes- 
ter of a line carrying the AM sig- 
nal to five houses on Fraternity 


Kanter sees three principal dif- 
ficulties which the station must 
face in the coming year. "The 
most urgent problem," Kanter de- 
clared, "is to make the AM signal 
conform more precisely to the ra- 
diation requirements of the FCC. 
In programming, Kanter stated, 
"we must combine increased re- 
liability with the highest possible 

No drastic changes in the sche- 
duling are projected. Kanter hopes 
to see the addition of several more 
audience participation shows and 
extended Stereophonic broadcast-

ordinate programming more fully 
with the college curriculum, par- 
ticularly in the Music and Lan- 
guage departments.

World War II in Entry A of Sage

Carnival Planned; 
Lack Of Snowfall 
Threatens Skiing 

The Outing Club is proceeding 
on schedule with plans for annual 
Winter Carnival, February 14 and 

Skiing events will begin Satur- 
day on Mt. Greylock's Thunder- 
bolt trail. The downhill races will 
start at 9:30 a.m., and the giant 
slalom will be held in the afternoon 
beginning at 1:30. Sunday will fea- 
ture the cross-country races at 
Savoy State Forest in the morning 
and jumping atGoodell Hollow, So. 
Williamstown, in the afternoon. 
Help Needed 

Members of the Outing Club are 
busy this week preparing the 
trails for the meet. Snow must be 
added by hand to both the down- 
hill trail and the jump, and lots of 
help is needed. The physical fa- 
cilities for the meet are in need of 
a great deal of work. 

The schools participating in the 
meet are all hoping that the Car- 
nival will be held, for the following 
week is the championship at Mid- 
dlebury. Coach Ralph Townsend 
announces the final decision today. 

Olympics Movie 

In the way of social life a movie 
of the 1952 Winter Olympics will 
be shown Saturday evening in 
Chapin Hall. Admission will be 
free, but a donation to the Olym- 
pic Fund will be solicited. After the 
movie a skating party will be held 
on the hockey rink. Hot chocolate 
and doughnuts will be served, and 
music will be provided over the pu- 
blic addi-ess system. The rink will 
open at 8:30. 

If snow comes this week, the 
Outing Club plans to floodlight 
Sheep Hill for skiing on Friday 
night. The slopes presently lack 
snow completely. Snow would also 
mean that both freshmen and up- 
perclassmen would at once com- 
mence the task of building snow 

Houseparty Audience 
Hears Napier Speak 

Professor B. Davie Napier of the 
Yale Divinity School addressed a 
large houseparty congregation on 
the true meaning of Biblical faith 
at Chapel Sunday morning. 

Mr. Napier stated that the Bib- 
lical faith speaks not only to the 
usual, the expected, and the re- 
curring events in life, but to the 
unpredictable, improbable, and un- 
desirable such as tragedy, anguish 
and death. Biblical faith can never 
be popular and easy because God 
speaks most concretely and clearly 
at these times. 

The "isms" and institutions of 
modern culture, including too often 
the church, with their easy logic 
and superficial explanations of 
life, ride over these rough spots. 
Only a faith whose Ood Is free can 
address life which is filled •with 
Improbable events.

Alumni Donations Gain New High At Year's End; 
Grants Will Aid Pay, Benefits Of Williams Faculty 

The Williams (Jollege Alumni Fund closed its 1958-59 fund-raisinff campaign on [anuary 31 
with a record-breaking total of $321,388. 

According to Charles Hall, executive secretary of the fund, $243,915 was contrihuted by 53.6^ 
of all living VVilliams alunuii, the highest iiercentage of contributing alumni on record. 765 parents 
of students and recent aluniiii, the greatest number ever to contribute in this gr<)U|5, donated $49,232. 

Pres. Baxter Comments 

President James P. Baxter, III 
had these comments to make a- 
bout the alumni fund: "The an- 
nouncement that the Alumni and 
Parents' Funds campaigns had 
gone over the top with a record 
breaking total of 321.388 is the best 
news Williams College has had 
since the great Ford Foundation 
gift of close to a million dollars. 

"All thanks for a wonderful job 
of organization and hard work by 
Stanley Phillips '17 and Henry 
Cole, the chairmen of the two 
drives, by Michael Griggs '44, the 
vice-chairman. Charles Hall '15, 
our alumni secretary, and Willard 
Dicker.son '40, our director of de- 
velopment, and a host of effective 
class agents and parents' com- 
mitteemen. For the generosity of 
the individual donors, we are pro- 
foundly thankful. 

Increased Faculty Salaries 

"This year's total, exceeding the 
quotas by over $46,000, will be a 
tremendous help to the college in 
our continuing efforts to Improve 
faculty salaries. 

"In the three years since 1956 
we have raised the pay and fringe 
benefits of our teaching staff by 
more than $330,000 or 39.1 per 
cent. These are long strides to- 
wards our goal of making the Wil- 
liams Faculty still stronger des- 
pite the teacher shortage." 


The "Alumni F\ind" began in 
1919 when a group of alumni or- 
ganized a loyalty fund to meet an 
immediate need for more money. 
Operating continuously until 1948, 
the fund was suspended in that 
year because of a two and a half 
million dollar capital funds drive. 

In 1950 the alumni fund's op- 
eration was reorganized and re- 
activated to help meet increasing 
costs of education. Under the new 
organization, the alumni fund rai- 
sed $61,000 in 1950 as compared to 
the highest previous total of $56,- 
000 for any one year. Since then 
the fund has bettered its record for 
each consecutive year. 

Dickerson Emphasizes 
Strong Alumni Loyalty 

By John Franklin 

Willard Dickerson, director of the "Development Office", is 
a fine example of a man who has returned from the business world 
to the service of his alma mater. 

In bis present capacity, Dickerson aids in fund raising de- 
signed to increase die college's endowment. This is different from 
the Alumni Fund in that the latter is used to pay immediate ex- 
penses while money for which Di- 1 

ckerson is partly responsible is em 

ployed in long range projects. 
Fraternity Tours 

Dickerson is presently engaged 
in touring fraternity houses to 
stimulate active future participa- 
tion in alumni drives. This is being 
done because recent graduating 
classes have not played as active 
a role in fund raising campaigns 
during their first five years after 
graduation as have earlier classes. 

Ijickerson is very concerned with 
the percentage of alumni who do 
contribute to the annual Alumni 
Fund. The figure is substantially 
below that of Amherst, Dartmouth 
and the "big three". He believes 
that the present program based on 
loyalty which a graduate owes his 
alma mater, rather than the tax 
exemption which he gains by his 
donation is effective. "Williams 
is a good college and should be 
supported," he asserts. 

Increased Competition 

Dickerson emphasizes that Wil- 
liams must be supported if it is to 
compete with colleges like Har- 
vard and Yale for first rank facul- 
ty. He noted with pleasure this in- 
creased competition and stressed 
the fact that the teacher is now 
in the "driver's seat". However, he 
feels that the educator is still lack- 
ing some of the "benefits of our 
higher standard of living", and it 
is the ultimate goal of colleges to 
remedy this.

liam Walton. Robert Matthews and 
Giles Playfair recited a total of 
twenty-one poems to the accom- 
paniment of an orchestral group 
again conducted by Girswold. The 
clever orchestral effects and spiri- 
ted readings drew loud applause 
and, in many cases, laughter. Mat- 
thews was especially noteworthy 
for his tongue-twisting lines, de- 
livered at Gatling-gun pace, while 
Playfair specialized in voice effects 
both sombre and cheerfully lively. 

Difficult Music 

Veteran musician Walter Leh- 
mann, who played the flute and 
piccolo in the ensemble, said be- 
fore the concert that "Facade" was 
the most difficult piece of music he 
had ever executed. "In an orches- 
tral piece," he said, "you can lose 
your place and then pick it up 
four bars later. But in this, if you 
miss a beat, you're finished." The 
ensemble also Included clarinet, 
sax, trumpet, drums and cello. 

Professor Of German 
From Cornell Speaks 

Eric A. Blackall, chairman of the 
Department of German Literature 
at Cornell University, will speak 
on "The Emergence of German as 
a Literary Language" in Griffin 
Hall next Tuesday at 8. 

Professor Blackall's talk will be 
a synthesis of his own forthcom- 
ing book, "The Emergence of Ger- 
man as a Literary Language," ac- 
cording to W. H. Root, head of the 
Williams German Department. The 
book treats its subject primarily 
from the point of view of the phy- 
sical broadening of German which 
began in the eighteenth century. 


Before going to Cornell last year. 
Professor Blackall was director of 
studies in modern languages at 
Gonville and Caius College of 
Cambridge University. He had been 
a member of the faculty at Cam- 
bridge since 1938.

alumni fund 

Each yCcTr Williams Collt'f^e ojierates in the 
black because of its Alumni Fund. The money 
donated by the alumni, $321,388 this year, is 
an investment in education which represents 
faith on the part of the alumni in the ty]je of 
liberal arts education offered at Williams. 

Due to the efforts of Alumni secretary Charles 
B. Hall and many others, Williams is able to con- 
tinue as an independent institution. 




WMS-WCFM is a most dynamic and unappre- 
ciated organization. Every day from one in the 
afternoon until one in the morning, a wide vari- 
ety of radio programs entertain and interest a 
surprisingly large per cent of the College. 

From a series of comments and theories by the 
political science duo of Gaudino and Rensen- 
brink to Joe Turner's hound sounds from Spring 
Street, the student managers, and particularly 
Dave Kanter, come up with programs which suit 
the moods and tastes of the college audience. 

Occasionally, what comes out of the speaker is 
not of the best quality; some people don't think 
a college station should stoop to popular noise- 
music. Anything that might be done, of course, 
will get this sort of criticism. 

For developing a smooth organization which 
usually puts on a good show, WMS merits ap- 
plause; something which the technicians and an- 
nouncers rarely get. 


rock and roll 

All who witnessed the "concert" Saturday night 
were united in at least one observation— "I've 
never seen anything like it before in Chapin." 
It is true that some of the old jazz combos played 
to the same crowded hall, but in no recent audi- 
ence has enthusiasm run so high. 

The Elegants and the instrumental group were 
well received. Dickey Doo and his Don'ts were a 
disappointment, memories of which were swept 
away by Larry Williams. Standing on the big 
pipe organ, his singing with accom]5anying gy- 
rjitions (i.e. Johnny Ray - Elvis Presley) raised 
audience enthusiasm to the point of participa- 
tion. Dancing in the aisles, onstage, in the bal- 
conies and universal clapping and stomping gave 
the place a chaotic, vibrating atmosphere. 

Yes, everyone seemed to be having a good time 
-but is this kind of concert suited to a college 


monday night 

As we strolled into the Th()in|5S()ii Biology Lab- 
oratory at I():()() of Monday night after house- 
parties, we felt a deep .sense of i^ride and achieve- 

Our i^uipose at the time was to hear a lecture 
by Dean William Graham Cole on the rather 
involved subject of "Sex, Love and Marriage." 
Full well did we ajipreciate our status as ii)3]5er- 
classmen. We had finally reached that ejiitome 
of both physical and intellectual maturity when 
we could be instructed about the intricacies of 
a subject usually relegated to the researches of 
scientists or the assertions of amatem-s. Seldom is 
it possible, we mused, to joartake of such instruc- 
tion without resigning oneself to mailorder pam- 

We then took a moment out to mentally congra- 
tulate Dean Cole for bringing to the Williams 
curriculum an informal but ( if what our pre- 
decessors say is true) highly valuable course. 



There are nights when the snack bar seems 
a little darker than usual. There in the little 
limed-oak booths, the peojjle sit, sipping cokes 
and coffee, observing each other. 

In this semi-circular glass cage, Zilda and the 
girls do their best to make life ha]5]5y but on the 
extra dark nights, their task is impossible. 

Snatches of conversation reach the ear: There 
is no reason to accentuate all the eightli notes 
equally . . . Bill, your sandwich is ready . , . 
why the hell didn't she write me last week . . . 
oh, I'm just tired . . . good to have met you, 
George, I inean Don . . . just what is there 
about geology . . . have you done any work 

Once in a while you feel the urge for some- 
thing unusual to eat. You have triecl the choco- 
late frap with tomato juice with unforgetable 
results— so you get a hamburg and wish that ev- 
eryone wasn't watching. 

Usually on a dark night, the thought keeps 
recurring that they have suddenly lowered the 
wattage of the bulbs. "Oh, hello Bob," your 
friend sits down. No, he doesn't think the place 
seems daiker than usual. You study the fixtures 
to see if they may contain extra bulbs which 
could be turned on. He doesn't think they do. 

You think unavoidably about the girl you 
want to forget and try to remember who exactly 
it was who said that houseparties consisted 
mainly in changing your clothes and having an- 
other drink.

To the Editor: 

CongratulatioiLs on your curtain-raising Micketf mouse. I like 
the business about the in liigh places, and think 
you are right. 

May I be ijerniitted a chuckle at your expense? 

"We are conducting an intensive campaign for proper English 
spelling and granimar and promise to check the spelling of all 
unusual names with whomever knows how to spell them. 

"Whomever" is a contraction for "him wlio," and since "who" 
is in the nominative case subject of tlie verb "knows," the con- 
traction must be "whoever." Another way to put it is this: tlie 
entire expression "whomever . . . tliem" is tin; object of the ])rei)- 
osition "with", not just the first word. That's what threw you oil -

Back in my courtiiif;; days (the niccDoii coat \va.s all the niKo, 
everybody was singing Good Morimig, Mister Zip Zip Zip, and 
younp; Bona|>;u'te had just left Corsica), back, I say, in my 
courting day.«, the standard way to melt a (jirl's heart was to 
write poetry to her. 

I don't understand why young men today have abandoned 
this gambit. There is notliiiiR like jxietry for movintj a diflieult 
girl. What's more, poems are ridiciildiisly easy to write. The 
Tixnge of subjects is endless. You eaii write a poem about a nirl's 
liair, her eyes, her lips, lier walk, lier talk, her clotlM-s — aiiytbiMi; 
at all. Indeed, one of my most elToetive love lyrics was call'id 
To Muiid'ts Pencil Bu.c. It went liko tliis: 


iolllsii(i'5Wil\)of itmtliieM: 

In your dear little leatherette pencil box 
Are pencils of yellow and red, 
And if you don't tell me you lone mc soon, 
I'll hit you on top of the head. 

Honesty compels me to admit that this poem fell short of 
success. Nothing daunted, I wrote anotlier one. This time I 
pulled a switch; I threatened mj/sc// instead of Maud. 

Oh, Maud, pray stop this drivel 
And tell me you'll be mine. 
For my sweetbreads they do shrivel 
And wind around my spine. 

My heart doth cease its beating, 
My spleen uncoils and warps, 
My liver stops secreting 
Soon I needs be a corpse. 

When this heart-rending ballad failed to win Maud, I could 
only conclude that she was cruel and heartless and I was better 
off without her. Accordingly I took back my Hi-Y pin, bade her 
adieu, and have not clapped eyes on her since. Last I lieard, 
she was working in Galveston as a PlimsoU line. 

But I did not mourn Maud long, for after Maud came Doris— 
Doris of the laughing eyes, Doris of the shimmering hair, I)ori.s 
of the golden tibiae! Within moments of meeting her, I whipped 
up a torrent of trochaic tetrameter: 

Oh, my sweet and dulcet Doris! 

I love you like a Philip Morris 

With its mild and rich tobacco 

In its white and scarlet pack-o. 

I'd swim from Louisville to Natchez 

For Philip Morris and you and matches. 

Well, of course, the dear girl couldn't resist a poem like that 
—what girl could?— and she instantly became my slave. For 
the rest of the semester she carried my books, washed my car, 
and cored my api)los. There is no telling where it all would 
have ended if she hadn't been drafted. 

So, men, you can see the power of poetry. Try it yourself. All 
you need is a rhyming dictionary, a quill pen, and a second- 
hand muse. ®,e5..M..Sh„l„..

Morton Jumps College 
Scoring Total To 1115 

by Tohif Smith 
With a total of 308 i^oints in fifteen j^ames this season, Geoff 
Morton, senior center on the Williams basketball team, has sent 

his college total to 1115. Morton — 

broke the all-time Williams Col- 
lege individual scoring record a- 
galnst Kings Point, January 29. 
Breaks Wilson's Record 
The former record of 994 points 
was held by Ron Wilson '55, who 
played on the 1955 NCAA team 
from Williams. Morton broke Wil-

of 394 points set in 1954 by lack-

"Geoff is one of the finest of- 
fensive players we've ever had", 
commented Coach Al Shaw. Mor- 
ton's scoring", however, is not lim- 
ited to his soft right-hand jump 
shots. He currently has a 78 per 
cent mark from the foul line. 
Leading Rebounder 

Morton's finest defensive asset 
is his rebounding. He now has 222 
rebounds in 15 games and should 
continue as the team's top man in 
that department. 

Tne son of Mr. and Mrs. Thom- 
as E. Morton of Mentor, Ohio, 
Morton attended Gilmour Acad- 
emy. He graduated in 1955 with 
one school record to his credit — ■ 
43 points in a single game. 

Last year, Morton averaged 21.9 
points a game which was one of 


Wed., Februory 11, 1959 


the highest averages in New Eng- 
land. In his sophomore year he 
scored 352 points for a 17.6 aver- 
age. Counting fifteen games this 
season, Morton's college average 
for 55 games is 20.5. 

In addition to his basketball, 
Morton has played tennis and ran 
the high hurdles for the college 
last year.

Wesleyan Topples Basketball Team; 
Ephmen Smash Middlebury, 90-68 

by Al Miller 

Capitalizing on the poor stiooting 
of Williams, a fired-up Wesleyan 
team posted its first victory on 
the Williams court since 1949. 
Playing before a capacity house- 
party crowd, the Wesleyan team 
used a tight zone defense and a 
well balanced scoring attack to 
upset the Ephmen, 67-54. 

Led by Joe Mallory with 19 
points, all five of the Cardinal 
starters hit double figures. Tlie 
two teams traded points evenly 
until midway in the first half when 
Wesleyan took the lead and never 
relinquished it. Jeff Morton was 
the Eph high scorer with 17 points. 
Middlebury Trounced 

Thursday night it was a dif- 
ferent story for Coach Shaw's 
team. A mediocre Middlebury team 
found the going rough and bowed 
to the fast moving Ephs, 90-68. 
The two teams seemed well match- 
ed for the first four minutes, but 
baskets by Morris and Hedeman 
gave Williams the lead for good. 

Coach Shaw emptied his bench 
after the Ephs had pulled away 
to a 71-49 lead, but he still had 
trouble holding down the score. 
For Williams the rebounding of 
Morton, Hedeman, and Weaver, 
and the floor play of guards Will- 
mott, Boyton and Parker stood out.

earned a 43-43 standoff with Col-

Robinson smashed his own New

Skaters Win Contests 
Over Cornell, Colgate 

The Williams varsity hockey 
team rolled up two impressive road 
victories by crushing Cornell 5-1 
and Colgate 7-2 over the weekend. 
Coach Mccormick's charges now 
stand 5-6-1 as the result of three 
straight victories. 

At Ithaca on Friday Hawkins' 
line scored all five goals with 
George Lowe and Bob Lowden col- 
lecting two apiece. Lowden sent 
the Ephs ahead in the first ten 
seconds of the initial period when 
he converted passes from Lowe 
and Hawkins into a quick goal. 
Leading by the slim margin of 2-1 
in the final period, the Purple ska- 
ters iced the game on goals by 
Lowden, Hawkins, and Lowe. 

On Saturday Mike Grant broke 
a 2-2 tie at 3:14 of the final per- 
iod, and the Ephs went on to rout 
the Colgate sextet with four more 
goals in the last canto. Hawkins 
paced the victors with three goals 
and one assist. Grant tallied twice 
and Lowden and Fisher each scor- 
ed once. 

Beadie, Boyden, and Com.stock 
scored third period goals as the 
undefeated Frosh came from be-

minutes to win his first varsity

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, Wed., February 11, 1959 

Dekes Rent Unused Congregational 
Parsonage, ^Satisfied And GrateiuV 

Boulton Discusses Himself, Williams 


formerly a parsonag:e 

Shortly after the January sixth 
fire gutted the DKE house on 
Main Street, Rev. Robert Foster 
offered the then-unoccupied Con- 
gregational parsonage to the col- 
lege on a temporary basis. Pending 
approval by the members of the 
church, college treasurer Charles 
A. Poehl arranged with the dis- 
placed fraternity members, then 
living in other houses and private 
homes, to move in during the se- 
mester break. 

Built around the turn of the 
century, the parsonage located 
behind the church, housed Con- 
gregational ministers until last 
year. The building itself is decep- 
tively spacious; twelve students 
and the houseman, Ovila St. Pi- 
erre, live there in relative com- 
fort. Three others were given per- 
mission to live off-campus. 
Fire Precautions 

Constructed almost entirely of 
wood, the parsonage was first re- 
garded with mild skepticism by 
some of its present occupants. 
However, fire ladders have been 
installed in all bedrooms and sev- 
eral extinguishers are in evidence. 
The heating plant is a modern oil 
furnace with safety devices. 

Furnishings at first appeared to 
be a major problem, since nothing 
was saved from the ruins. How- 
ever, Peter Welanetz, superinten- 
dent Buildings and Grounds sup- 
plied sufficient beds and desks. 
Other furniture was donated by 
parents and students. 

"Quite Satisfied" 

Of the accommodations, DKE 
president John Greer says, "we are 
all quite satisfied and extremely

In the "Snow Corner of 
New England" 

On Main Street, a contractor is 
salvaging whatever is possible from 
the remains. Parts of the base- 
ment, including the kitchen and 
chapter room were relatively un- 
damaged. Tlie foundation and 
walls of the house will probably 
be razed before construction be- 
gins. John J. Abberley '39, has 
been named chairman of the alum- 
ni building committee. 

By Ted Castle 

"I was brought up in a little 
town in Connecticut called Spen- 
cer which gave me something to 
fight against for the rest of my 
life," said David Boulton sitting 
back in an old leather sofa on the 
second floor of the Old Faculty 
Club. "We call this room the pleas- 
ure dome," he remarked gesturing 
with a wave of his hand at the 
vaulted white plaster ceiling. 
"What can I do for you?" 

I'm not sure why I decided to 
teach English — when I was at 
Mount Hermon I thought 1 was 
interested in history. Then I ran 
into History 1-2 at Bowdoin and 
switched to English as quickly as 
possible," he laughed in the man- 
ner which makes him distinguish- 
able anywhere. "I've never been 
able to figure out my main inter- 
est in literature; 17th-18th cen- 
tury, I suppose that's my field, if 
you can call it a field." 
Small Colleges 

"I think about Williams as 
home, I guess. One always sup- 
poses that one's family is basic- 
ally good despite momentary har- 
nis.-.ments. I remember that the 
annual cry of the "Bowdoin Ori- 
ent" was about a certain lack of 
interest; — the failure of intellectual 
excitement is a disease endemic to 
the small college." Boulton felt 
that only at a larger university is 
it possible to be in a group of stu- 
dents intensely interested in what 
might be called extra-curricular

thinking. "Here it's awfully hard 
for anyone to escape without at- 
tracting attention. Those who are 
not known are probably complete- 
ly colorless — this is an ideal set-up 
for that, of course. 

"I think if you asked any five 
Williams sophomores why they 
came to Williams, they would all 
mention the 'close contact with 
their teachers.' In a peculiar way, 
students who really want to get to 
know the faculty can do it better 
at a bigger place, There is a feel- 
ing of always being in the light" 
which, he felt deters many stu- 

dents from really having many 
personal friends on the faculty 
The Faculty 

"There's no easier way to 
threaten a faculty than to ask it 
to question its own aims. It's mucli 
easier not to try to articulate wlmt 
you're doing. But I think it is 
necessary to ask the question _ 
you'll discover at least that con- 
fusion is rampant." 

Boulton decided to go 
teaching i"a most pleasant lif( > 
in 1950 after getting an M. A. from 
Yale. He started at the Universiiy 
of Kansas i"I wanted to get i. it 
of the East") and was drafted dur- 
ing the Korean "little war." A.'< a 
member of the Central Intelligence 
Corps I "one of these really suft 
deals") he plainclothesed it 
through Germany until 1953 whi n 
he returned to Yale for work mi 
his doctorate. Boulton has be. ii 
at Williams since 1955. 

"A five-day week might play Ik ;i 
with activities, but if I had lo 
change one thing, it would be class 
hours. If I had to be relieved of 
.something I would cry 'no meet- 
ings.' The trustees, you know, have 
added merit in slapping down fac- 
ulty committees. 

"I think houseparties are an ex- 
cellent institution," he concluded, 
clasping his knee and dangling 
his leg. "The confinements of this 
place are extreme. It's very heal- 
thy to escape them."

Council Leader Martin Haystack Drive Starts Wednesday; 
Evaluates New Group Grants Support Foreign Students 

"a more rational bent" 

iiuMnl)cr.slii|) ol this vcur's C-'oiif^c Council 
possessing a j^oocl halaiicc of expuricMiccd icadfis aiid 
ncwconicrs," stated Al Martin '60, new president o( tlu 
Coinicil, in a recent RE(X)HD interview. 

"I certainly feel the present 
Council should act with more 
strength than past Councils. There 
can't be as much vacillating opin- 
ion. I feel this Council has a more 
rational bent (in terms of the 
membership) and will not be as 
prone to idealistic solutions en- 
tirely out of context with student 
opinion. But on the other hand the 
Council must constantly i-eaffirm 
its right to transcend student dis- 
interestedness. Campus opinion 
cannot bind the CC but must serve 
only to guide the Council in its 
final deliberation." 

Political Climate 

"The CC must be aware of the 
political climate on campus." he 
went on to say, "and, while realiz- 
ing that student government is a 
.secondary concrn on campus, the 
CC must retrain from ill-con.sid- 
ered action." 

"Tiie class officers were elected 
as responsible, intelligLnl leaders 
of their respective classes. As such 
they must rely primarily on their 
own reasoning, taking into ac- 
count student opinion." Martin 
further stated. 

Potential I'rograms 

Martin outlined .several areas for 
potential investigation. He noted 
that an "extensive re-evaluation" 
of the rushing program is becom- 
ing more and more necessary. He 
commented on the "considerable 
potential" of the Houseparty Com- 
mittee, adding that the commit- 
tee must find responsible groups to 
run the big weekends.

Wednesday. February 18th, will 
mark the opening of the Haystack 
Fellowship fund drive. Under the 
direction of Bob Stegeman '60, the 
Williams College Chapel will run 
a one day solicitation of the stu- 
dent body. 

Scope of Fund 

The Haystack Fund covers the 
cost of supporting two foreign 
students at Williams each year. 
When the program began in 1956, 
the college agreed to waive tuition 
if the student body assumed the 
remaining including room 
and board. 

The idea for the Haystack Fel- 
low.ship was conceived during the 
Sesquicentennial Commemoration 
of the first missionary movement 
in America, founded at Williams 
College in 1806. Since 1956, two 
students have received their edu- 

Pollard Talks On Unity Of Nature 
As Shown In Field Of Bio-Physics 

Seniors Offered 
Graduate Grants 

At the present time five funds 
for graduate fellowships are avail- 
able to Williams .seniors. 

The Horace F. Clark Scholar- 
ships award two prizes of not more 
than $500 to seniors chosen on 
the basis of superior ability and 
interest in scholarly research. 

The Charles Brigen Lansing 
Scholarship is either a graduate 
or undergraduate scholarship in 
Latin or Greek, the recepter being 
selected by the President and the 
head of the Classical Department. 

The Hubbard Memorial Schol- 
arship is awarded to a member of 
the graduating class sufficiently 
talented in such creative work as 
music. Writing, painting, philoso- 
phy, or the sciences. It aids the 
student for two years following 

For Oxford Studies 

For those interested in contin- 
uing their .studies at Oxford, there 
is a two year grant, the John Ed- 
mund Moody Scholarship, based 
on intellectual ability as shown 
in the major field of study, with 
special reference to promise of or- 
iginal and creative work, charac- 
ter, and need for majors in Greek, 
Latin, English, history, political 
science, philosophy, religion, or ec- 
onomics. Also for studies at Ox- 
ford there is the Carroll A. Wil- 
son Fund, to be choisen "after the 
manner of Rhodes Scholarships 
with special attention to leader- 
ship, scholastic attainment, and 
physical vigor." 

Application.s for these grants 
should be picked up. filled out, and 
turned in to Mr. Henry Flynt's of- 
fice before February 15. 

Stressing the underlying simpli- 
city and unity of nature, Professor 
E. C. Pollard, noted bio-physicist 
from Yale spoke on "Physics and 
the Living Cell" in the Thompson 
Physics Lab Tue.sday. February 10. 

Supplementing the talk with a I 
take-apart model of a virus, his | 
own specialty, Pollard defined the 
field of bio-physics and went on to 
explain the nature of the relation- 
ship between the two .sciences. He 
stated that the field of bio-phy- 
sics rests on "a faith in the unity 
of nature." a feeling that the same 
natural laws hold in the two fields. 

The "Why" of Living Systems 

Pollard pointed out that the bi- 
ologist must now adopt the meth- 
ods of physics in order to find out 
the "why" of systems, as opposed 
to cataloguing what happens to a 
sy.stem. The general laws and con- 
cepts neces.sary for such an ap- 
proach, he added, were just begin- 
ning to emerge. 

He admitted the possibility that 
the laws of physics would prove in- 
adequate for such a task and ex- 
pressed the hope that a general 
organizational law to distinguish 
life from the non-living could be 

Minister From Union 
To Talk Next Sunday 

Union Theological Seminary's 
Reverend Tom Driver will deliver 
a sermon entitled "The Word of 
the God Who Won't Talk" in Cha- 
pel Sunday evening. 

Before taking the pulpit, Driver 
will be the guest of the WCC at 
a hamburger supper when he will 
talk on "Morality and Broadway". 

Driver, the holder of a B. D. and 
a Ph. D. in English literature, has 
directed off-Broadway plays and 
has written the libretto for an or- 
atorio on the life of John Wesley. 
He is also the drama editor of 
"Christian Century". At Union he 
is assistant professor of religion 
and literature. 

Controversy on Sex 

A year ago he became involved 
in an exchange of letters with Ro- 
bert Fitch over Fitch's controver- 
sial book, "The Decline and Fall 
of Sex." Driver attacked Fitch for 
being "too moralistic." 

Chaplain Lawrence P. DeBoer 
had nothing but praise for Driver. 
"My own feeling is that Mr. Driver 
is one of the clearest and most 
profound minds that I have ever 
met," he said. 

Visiting Scientist Program 

Doctor Pollard visited Williams 
on a visiting scientist program ar- 
I'anged by the American Institute 
of Physics to encourage interest 
in the sciences. He lias been active 
in nuclear physics and electronics 
at M. I. T. and has been a consis- 
tent contributor to .scientific jour- 

Record Candidate 
Program Initiated 

Candidates for spring competi- 
tion for the RECORD staff met 
Tue.sday night in the Rath.skeller 
for a brief introductory meeting. 

A new improved training pro- 
gram has been initiated under the 
dirEction of Toby Smith and Stu 
Levy of the editorial board. Plans 
include three scheduled meetings 
in which all candidates will be- 
come acquainted with newspaper 
writing styles and the mechanics 
of putting out the RECORD. 

A closer association with the 
candidates is sought throughout 
the training period. Special em- 
phasis will be placed on good news 
and sports writing. 

During the spring two cuts will 
be made, one before spring vaca- 
tion and one before finals. 

Twenty candidates attended the 
introductory meeting. Anyone else 
interested should contact either 
Levy or Smith. 

'Summer And Smoke' 
To Open Next Week 

Cap and Bells will give Tennes- 
see Williams' "Summer and 
Smoke" from February 19th 
through February 21st in the Ad- 
ams Memorial Theater. 

The production will be directed 
by William J. Martin, lecturer in 
drama. His wife Cathy will play 
the lead role; others featured will 
be Tony Distler, Cap and Bells 
president, and Debbie Clark, a 
North Adams girl. 


An unconventional melodrama, 
the play centers around sexual 
frustration and the suppression of 
natural desires. Tickets are pre- 
sently on sale at the box office. 

Giles Playfair, director of the 
AMT, will direct George Bernard 
Shaw's "Candida", a romantic, 
philosophical comedy, March 18-

The basic motivation behind the 
fellowship was termed by Stege- 
man as "the replacement of a pos- 
sible missionary by a student, who 
in the long run might be able to 
make a more realistic and valu- 
able contribution to his country." 
Tiig Haystack fellowship is usually 
awarded to a native of Asia or 

Voluntary Contributions 

In order to reach their 1959 
goal, entry reps in the Freshman 
dormitories and fraternity repre- 
sentatives will ask for a contribu- 
tion of $1.50 from each student. 
Thj Haystack Fund differs from 
the Bowdoin Plan in that contri- 
butions must be solicited from the 
entire college instead of only the 
flesh men. 

Seven Students Drop, 
May Possibly Return 

"Seven students left college af- 
ter the first semester because of 
scholastic deficiencies," stated 
Dean R. R. R. Brooks Wednesday. 
All seven were members of the 
sophomore class, and are eligible 
for ^eadmission. 

The Dean expressed satisfaction 
with the low number who were 
forced to leave. He noted that the 
"three C rule" — (every member of 
the three upper classes must at- 
tain at least three C's a semes- 
ter) — did not affect the juniors 
and seniors already involved in a 
major and who would be unable to 
transfer to another college without 
losing a year. 


Regarding those who would seek 
readmission. Brooks said that he 
had advised them to either join 
the army, get a job, or enter an- 
other college before they again ap- 
ply to the college. When questioned 
about the basis upon which these 
people are reconsidered, he stated 
that the Committee on Academic 
Standing treats each application 

Ski Meet, Movie 
Feature Activities 
Of '59 Carnival 

Winter Carnival 1959 will begin 
officially Saturday morning at 
9:30, with the opening of the ski 
meet on the slopes of Mt. Grey- 

First event will be the downhill 
race on the Thunderbolt trail. 
Saturday afternoon al 1;30 the 
slalom will be held, also on the 
Thunderbolt. Sunday morning will 
feature cross-country at Savoy 
State Forest, and that afternoon 
the jumps will be held at Goodell 
Hollow. Rides should be available 
from upperclassmen for anyone 
who wishes to watch the events. 
Few Parties 

With the absence of housepar- 
ties there are no major social e- 
vents scheduled for the weekend. 
Delta Phi. Zeta Psi, St. Anthony, 
and Delta Upsilon are the only 
houses planning parties with bands 
and entertainment. 

Saturday night at 7:30 a film 
ot the 1952 Winter Olympics will 
be shown in Cliapin Hall for the 
benefit of the Olympic ski-fund. 
Admission will be 50 cents. This 
is a change from the original plan 
of merely asking a donation. 

The hockey rink will be open 
after the movie from 8:30 till 
10:30. Hot chocolate and other 
refreshments will be sold. Price 
of admission will be 50 cents for 
dates; students need only to show 
their ID cards. 


The whole of Winter Carnival is 
under the direction of the Williams 
Outing Club. Their work has been 
made considerably more difficult 
this year by the lack of snow. Ev- 
ery day this week crews of from 
20 to 50 volunteers have gone out 
under the supervision of Outing 
Club director Ralph Townsend to 
work on the trails, trying to put 
them in shape for the weekend. 
Wednesday's snowfall helped to al- 
leviate the rather desperate situa- 

Senior Class Elections Rescheduled 
For Monday Due To Closed Doors 

The election of permanent sen- 
ior class officers was rescheduled 
for Monday, February 16, after a 
group of fifty-five seniors found 
Jesup Hall locked on February 10. 

Six officers will be elected: pre- 
sident, secretary-treasurer, agent, 
speaker, and two marshalls. Nomi- 
nations will be made from the 
floor and elections for each office 
held separately. 


The permanent officers will 
handle all further class business. 
The president and secretary-treas- 
urer will represent the senior class 
on the college council during the 
second semester. 

In addition the secretary-treas- 
urer sends class news to the Alum- 
ni Review, and the agent collects 
contributions to the alumni fund. 
At commencement the two mar- 
shalls will lead the class and the 
speaker will deliver an oration. 
New Policy Continued 

The election will mark the sec- 
ond time that permanent class of- 
ficers have been elected at this 
time of year. The present system 
was started last year as a result 
of an amendment to the college 
council constitution. The old sys- 
tem called for elections at the end 
of the year, necessitating "pro- 

tem' officers until the end of the 

Last year's elections drew only 
30 per cent of that senior class to 
elect Jack Love as their permanent 

Blackall Talk Traces 
Germany's Literature 

Professor Eric A. Blackall 
spoke Tuesday night in Griffin 
Hall on "The Emergence of Ger- 
man as a Literary Language in the 
Eighteenth Century." 

The Chairman of the Cornell 
University department of German 
Literature, Professor Blackall trac- 
ed the language from 1700 to 1775, 
primarily from the point of view 
of its development in flexibility 
and power. It was this develop- 
ment, Blackall pointed out, which 
made possible the rise of great 
literary geniuses in Germany by 
giving them better tools with 
which to express their Ideas. 

In general. German was improv- 
ed during the eighteenth century 
by fusing the old language to a 
rational grammar and organiza-

THE WILLIAMS RECORD, Friday, Feb. 13, 1959 

editorials, letters, features 


The system ot usiim incnihois of the junior 
class to counsel and me with freshmen was de- 
veloped many years ago at Williams. At that 
time, first-year students became members of 
the various fraternity grouiis or of the Commons 
Club within the first few weeks of their en- 
trance into collef^e. Freshmen were in constant 
contact with up])erclassmen; the value of a junior 
adviser was his pro.ximate availability in just talk- 
ing with his charges. 

Five years ago, the Sterling Committee of alumni, 
faculty and undergraduates i^roposed a system 
which deferred fraternity rushing until the soph- 
omore year. This i)lan was subse((uently i)ut in- 
to effect. Deferred rushing stresses class unity 
before fraternity lovalty with consequent bene- 
ficial effect on contributions to Williams College. 

The role of the junior advisor under the ]5resent 
plan is a vital one \'is-a-\'is the fraternities and 
the freshmen. This resident counselor is \irtually 
the freshman's only contact with the three ii]3|ier 
classes with the exception of rather su|3erficial 
social meetings. For the freshman, to whom fra- 
ternities have become the great unknown, the 
junior adviser represents the up])er classes and 
the fraternities. 

Still, however, the junior adviser's main function 
is his very availability and ability to talk with 
any freshman with whom he comes in contact. 
It is his genuine interest in the problems of the 
freshmen and his initiative in hel]5ing to solve 
them that marks the good J. A. Though fresh- 
men as a rule may not emulate their adviser, 
they do res])ect what he says. 

It appears, therefore, that the main c|ualification 
necessary for a junior adviser today should be 
the ability to lucidly express whatever the fresh- 
man wants to know. It follows that the junior 
selected as adviser must be interested and in- 
formed in college affairs. 

That the position of junior adviser has come to 
be regarded as a great honor for the reci]5ient is 
admirable. However, it must never become com- 
pletely honorary.

5,000 Cans Of Cold Beer 

At All Times 


When Summerborn's i'riend.s spoke of him, they said 
he wa.s at New Haven "studying"; other.s said he 
was there because of a charming pension where he 
found the Schaefer beer particularly enjoyable. 

Summerborn was in New York to visit his aunt; she 
stayed at a "grand hotel" where there was a roof 
garden with an excellent view of the city; enjoying 
an iced bottle of Schaefer there one afternoon, he 
saw a beautiful young lady advancing on roller 
skates. Although his aunt would call the girl a 
"flirt," and her means of locomotion vulgar, he 
found her look of innocence exceedingly beguiling. 

"I'm Mai.sie Miller," she said boldly, "you must be 
in society. I .see you know what's heard in the best of 
circles." "Schaefer all around!" he answered, and 
made the response a command to his waiter. 

"I dote on society myself," she said, "and am in it a 
great deal. At home last summer there were nine 
cook-outs given in my honor, Schaefer beer being 
served at every one." "It has a smooth round fla- 
vor," he smiled, "never 
sharp, never flat." 

"Have you ever been to that 
big skyscraper?" she a.sked, 
pointing her skate key at the 
Empire State Building. 
"Yes, upon occasion, more 
than once," he .said, and 
agreed to take her there. 

His aunt was much put out when he did so, and told 
him that Miss Maisie Miller was "being seen" all over 
the city with a baseball player. Reluctantly he "for- 
got" her; it was later learned that she had .succumbed 
to Pennant Fever, and followed baseball teams all 
about the country, even attending night games. 

She sent Summerborn a message saying she, too, 
knew what was heard in the best of circles, but when 
he at last understood she meant she liked him, he 
could not find her. He returned to New Haven, 
whence come conflicting reports of why he stays: 
he is "studying" hard— he enjoys the Schaefer 
beer there.

Ernie Fleishman: 15-3, 15-5, 15-7. 
Williams' Wins 

All three Purple victories were 
in close matches. Greg Tobin set- 
tled down in his fifth game and 
clicked with his corner shots to 
win 15-9. Chris Schaefer edged his 
opponent: 18-17, 15-12, 18-17. Bill 
Miller was too fast for his man 
and came from behind twice to 
triumph in the fifth game. 
Army Too Strong 

The Black Knights lengthened 
their lead in two five-game mat- 
ches that could have gone either 
way. Clyde Buck won his third and 
fourth games before succumbing 
to Byron, 15-12. Bruce Brian was 
finally defeated in a see-saw bat- 
tle as he dropped his fifth game, 

The cadets etched out vic- 
tories in each of the final three 
matches to clinch the win.

Skiing Events To Highlight Carnival 

by Bill Anderson 

Williams will play host Satur- 
day and Sunday to ski teams from 
Dartmouth, Middlebury, Yale, and 
the University of New Hamp.shire 
for the annual Winter Carnival. 

Despite a lack of snow which 
nearly ended the Carnival com- 
pletely, all four events, downhill, 
slalom, cross-country, and jump- 
ing, will be held. The downhill is 
the only event affected by the snow 
shortage and it will be shortened 
to three quarters of the full length. 
Fisher Strong 

The Williams team will consist 
of Captain Jeff Fisher, Jan Ro- 
zendaal, Tom Phillips, and Eliot 
Coleman in the two Alpine events,

Basketball Team Overcomes Union; 
Willmott Stars In 85-66 Victory 

/;(/ Al Miller 
Wednesday iiij^lit, in ()r()hal)ly their best lionic f^aine of tlic 
season, the Williams basketball team defeated a favored Union 

team 85-66. Led by the shooting 
and floor play of Captain Pete 
Willmott, who ended up with 24 
points, the Williams team took 
the lead late in the first half and 
never relinquished it. 

Willmott, with 8 for 10 from 
the floor and one foul shot, had 17 
points at the end of the half. With 
5 minutes left to play in the first 
half, the Ephmen scored 15 
straight points to go ahead 40-27. 
The half ended with Williams a- 
head 43-33. 

Second Half Surge 

Coach Shaw's squad took com- 
mand immediately as the second 
half started, and mainly on the 
strength of Jeff Morton's four 
straight baskets assumed a 20 
point lead with 10 minutes left to 
play. From then on there was no 
hope for Union and the game end- 
ed with Williams on the front of 
an 85-66 score. 

The Union .squad, which came 
into the game with an impressive 
11-2 record, was led by Mike Blue- 
stein with 27 points. For Williams 
it was Willmott with 24 and Hede- 
man with 22. The rebounding of 
Hedeman, Morton, and Weaver was 
again outstanding and was in- 
.strumental in the victory. This win 
puts Williams back in the running 
for a berth in the NCAA Small 
College tournament. Saturday the 
Williams team will travel to Lou- 
denville. New York, to meet Siena.

Matmen Face Tough 
Match Against Jeffs 

By Wally Matt 

The varsity wrestling team faces 
a tough match against a strong 
Amherst team tomorrow at Am- 

Williams is undefeated in three 
matches so far this year, but the 
last two have been close. Tlie team 
has been weakened by the loss 
after the Tufts match of outstand- 
ing men in the 157 and 167 pound 

Amherst Strong 

Amherst has the best team this 
year that she has had in some 
time. This is largely the result of 
the addition of last year's unde- 
feated freshman team members to 
the varsity squad. 

Outstanding men for Amherst 
are Captain Jack Edwards at 147 
and sophomores Wade Williams 
and Sid Bixler at 157 and 177,

Frosh Basketball 
Rolls Over Union 

by Kick Seidenwurm 

Erupting with an outstanding of- 
fensive thrust, the Williams fresh- 
man basketball squad rolled to a 
97-59 win over a weak Union five 

The top three Eph scorers, Bob 
Mahland, Jay Johnston, and Dave 
Ritchie, combined for a total of 71 
points. Mahland, hitting on jump 
shots and drives, was high man 
with 28 points. Johnston had his 
finest night of the season, scoring 
25 points on set shots and drives. 
Ritchie scored 13 of his 18 points 
in the game's opening seven min- 

Eph Superiority 

Prom the opening whistle, the 
Williams superiority was clearly 
shown. Led by Ritchie, they tal- 
lied 18 points before Union scor- 
ed. Mahland and Johnston then 
took over and led the team to a 
52-21 halftime lead. 

The second half was nearly as 
spectacular. Mahland and John- 
ston continued their outstanding 
shooting to lead the Ephs to an- 
other big offensive half. Union 
improved upon their poor first half 
showing, but never was the equal 
of the inspired Ephmen. 

This win was the eighth tri- 
umph for the young Ephmen. 
Their only loss was a heartbreak- 
ing defeat at the hands of a very 
strong Dartmouth squad. 

Two Marks Fall As 
Frosh Stay Unbeaten 

by Irv Marcus 

The freshman swimming team 
edged previously undefeated Deer- 
field Academy 44-42 at the Deer- 
field pool Wednesday to extend 
their unbeaten skein to four meets. 

An enthusiastic Deerfield crowd 
saw the lead change hands sever- 
al times before Bob Panuska, Tom 
Herschbach, Steve Fowle, and John 
Haslett combined in the meet- 
winning 200 yd. freestyle relay. 
Their time of 1:35.2 bettered the 
previous Deerfield mark by .5 sec- 
onds. Another pool standard was 
lowered by frosh co-captain Has- 
lett, who won the 100 yd. freestyle 
in 53.0. 

Other Victors 

Other victors were Paul Dernier 
in the 100 yd. butterfly, Tom 
Herschbach in the 200 yd. free- 
style, and Bill Leckie in diving. 
Co-captain Robin Durham and 
Dave Mellencamp were also instru- 
mental in the victory, the former 
placing second in both the 100 
yd. backstroke and 150 yd. indi- 
vidual medley, and the latter, tak- 
ing third in the 50 yd. freestyle 
and second in the 100 yd. free- 

Ephs Lose 
In Hockey^ 

Breaking a three game winning 
streak, the varsity hockey team 
was defeated last Wednesday by 
a strong Army club at West Point. 

Army jumped into the lead very 
quickly by slapping the puck into 
the nets after a scramble in front 
of the Williams cage. This goal 
remained the margin until well 
into the last part of the third 
period when the Cadets tallied 
ihree times, including one by wing 
Pete Dawkins. 

Losing Record. 

The loss to Army on Wednesday 
was the seventh of the year for 
Williams. Although they had sev- 
eral scoring opportunities, the 
Ephs were unable to capitalize on 
them. This was a setback after 
scoring 19 times in the three pre- 
vious games against UMass, Col- 
gate, and Cornell. The record now 
stands at 5-7-1 on the season. 

The team travels to Amherst to- 
morrow to take on the Lord Jeffs 
for the second time. In the pre- 
vious encounter Williams scraped 
by with a 2-1 victory at an alumni 
sponsored game at Rye, N. Y.

Lenox, Choate. Vermont Academy,

ternoon in Williamstown. Because 
ol ineligibilities the team dressed 
only nine skaters against Deerfield 
and defeated the prep school team 
by the lowest margin yet this 
season, 3-2. 

Ihe power for the freshmen has 
been supplied mainly by the first 
line of Prank Marlowe, Bill Bead- 
le, and Marc Comstock. The line 
has been ably backed up by de- 
fensemen John Roe and Frank 
Ward and goalie Ham Brown.

sophomore Dave White at 123, 
junior Stew Smith at 130, and sen-

Smith and Hatcher have each 
scored two pins this year and 
Wieneke handed Coast Guard's Di- 
bella his first intercollegiate loss 
last week. 

Harry Bowdoin at 147, Bill Pen- 
ny at 157, Cliff Granger at 167, 
and Ted Sage at 177 will all face 
tough matches against experienc- 
ed opponents. 

New Officer Program 
Available To Seniors 

The Air Force, represented by 
Lieutenant La Jeunesse and Ser- 
geant Nolan, will be the first of 
the armed forces to visit Williams 
this year on February 18. 

Representatives from the Mar- 
ine Corps will be at Williams on 
March 9 and 10, from the Navy 
on March 12 and 13, and from the 
Coast Guard on April 7. The rep- 
resentatives make available op- 
portunities for the seniors and un- 
dergraduates to fulfill their mili- 
tary obligations. 

Military Programs 

The Air Force has announced a 
plan to give commissions to quali- 
fied college graduates beginning 
next year to offset current short- 
ages that now exist chiefly in the 
engineering, weather, and naviga- 
tor fields. This plan, called the 
Officer Training School program, 
will not conflict with the Air 
Force Reserve Officer Ti'aining 
Corps. Applicants must be between 
20 and one-half and 27 and one- 
half years of age and may be single 
or married. 

The coast guard is starting a 
new system which requires only six 
months of active duty, followed 
by three years of reserve. The Mar-

The one hundred members of the senior chiss attendinj^ the 

Monchiy nij^ht meeting in Jesup 
Secretary Treasurer; Leonard 
Grey, speaker for commencement; 
and Gary Higgins and Palmer

Contrary to what was previously 
announced, the class agent was not 
selected at this time but will be 
appointed later by the alumni. 

Although only 43 per cent of the 
senior class took part in the elec- 
tions, this figure compares favor- 
ably with the 30 per cent turnout 
of last year. The increase in voters 
was believed due to a circular let- 
ter by outgoing senior Pre- 
sident Palmer White, urging all 
seniors to vote. 


Rardin is currently Chairman of 
tlie Williams College Chapel, and

Driver Says God 
Aids Man Today 

Dr. Thomas Driver spoke in cha- 
pel last Sunday on the topic, "The 
Word of the God Who Won't 

In his sermon, Driver asserted 
that the main religious problem to- 
day is not a question of disbelief in 
God, but rather one of an idea that 
He is too remote to help the indi- 
vidual in our complex contempo- 
rary society. "What people deny," 
said Driver, "is communication be- 
tween God and man ... He is irrel- 
event to life , . . Man asks the ques- 
tions, but God won't talk." 

The phrase "God won't talk," 
Driver stated, means that He re- 
plies to our questions either not at 
all or else In meaningless aphor- 
isms. "Why can't God declare Him- 
self without double talk?" 

Dr. Driver cited as an example 
of the tendency of God not to 
"talk" the incident when Jesus, 
standing before the tribunal about 
to condemn Him to death, refused 
to even testify In His own defense 
at a moment when, as Driver no- 
ted, a thunderous speech from On 
High would have created a sensa- 

Gives Example 

Driver said that "God's word Is 
His deed." Such a deed is the Cni- 
cifixion, by which sacrifice of His 
Son God redeemed mankind. 

By our unthinking pleas to God 
that He speak to us, moreover, we 
hurt Him because we should know 
by His actions that He is not a 
remote being. It Is one of the mea- 
sures of His love that "He changes 
the very blows with which we 
strike Him into His Cross, which 
Is His word of love."

J. A. Applications 

The fifteen fraternity presidents 
have recently submitted approx- 
imately 150 applications for next 
year's thirty Junior Advisor posts. 

It is now the job of the mem- 
bers of the Junior Advtsor Com- 
mittee to sort these applications 
and add their own judgments to 
those of the house presidents. E- 
qual weight is given to the opinions 
of the house presidents and the 

Cole Heads Committee 

The committee, headed by Dean 
Cole, hopes to narrow the field 
down to between fifty or sixty 
strong candidates within a couple 
of weeks. Pinal decisions will be 
announced .sometime before spring 

There has been in the past pres- 
sure to have at least one advisor 
from each fraternity. This year's 
committee has decided not to im- 
pose this regulation. Their only li- 
mitation is a gentlemen's agree- 
ment that no more than four ad- 
visors from any house will be cho- 

Names Withheld 

The committee of eight has re- 
quested that their names be with- 
held from publication in order to 
avoid undue pressure from being 
brought to bear upon them during 
their selections.

Cap And Bells Produces 
'Summer And Smoke' 

Today entry and fraternitv representatives will be approaching all Williams students for volun- 
tary contributions to the Haystack scholarship fund. Chairman of the one-day fund drive, Bob Stege- 
man 'fiO, called for the wholehearted siijjport of the student body, "I know of no better testimony 
for the success of the yihu so far," he said, "dian the record of our present Haystack students, War- 
ner Kim and Noel Yeh." The Com- 
mittee hopes for a contribution of 
$1.50 from each student. 
Today's drive has a long and 
involved background. In 1806 five 
Williams students took shelter un- 
der a haystack to avoid the rain. 
While waiting they decided upon 
the need for an American mis- 
sionary movement. This was the 
beginning of the United States' 
Protestant foreign missions. 

In 1956 a celebration was held in 
Williamstown as part of the Ses- 
quicentennial Commemoration of 
the meeting under the haystack. 
John Foster Dulles visited Wil- 
liamstown for the ceremonies. The 
Williams College Chapel Board 
announced that year the founding 
of the Haystack scholarship. 
The Haystack Fund is based 
solely on voluntary contributions. 
In that way it differs from the 
Bowdoin Plan, which procui-es its 
funds from an all-college tax. The 
college agrees to waive tuition 
charges for Haystack students if 
the Fund will pay room and board. 
The Haystack Fund students are 
chosen by a student committee, the 
members of which are Bruce Lis- 
terman '59, Sang-Woo Ahn '60, and 
Ron Roberts '61. Assistant Direc- 
tor of Admissions Peter Pelham 
refers to the committee any qual- 
ified foreign student prospects and 
they choose between them. Last 
year the number of scholarships 
available was raised from one to

Kim And Yeh Discuss 
Benefits Of Fellowships 

By Benjamin Campbell ^ 

For the past year two foreign 1 
students have been attending Wil- ' 
Hams on Haystack fellowships. K. 
W. (Warner) Kim '59, from Ko- 
rea, has been at Williams for three 
years and will be the first student 
to graduate under the Haystack 
plan. Noel Yeh '61 of Singapore 
was a Bowdoin Plan student as a 
freshman last year. 

The original idea of the Hay- 
stack scholarship was to replace an 
American missionary in a foreign 
country with an American-educa- 
ted citizen of that country. "It's 
based on a good principle," Kim 

By Uldis Helsters 

"Who among the angelic orders 
will hear me if I cry out?", a quo- 
tation from Rilke, Is Tennessee 
Williams' preface to his play, 
"Summer & Smoke." The play will 
be presented by Cap and Bells in 
the Adams Memorial Theatre on 
Feb. 19, 20, and 21. 

William Martin of the Drama 
Department, who Is directing the 
production, describes It as "the 
cry of a hurt animal for under- 

nobody home to answer the door 

standing". He feels that the play's 
view of man as alone, with no- 
thing to look up to, places Wil- 
liams in opposition to religion. But, 
rather than being negative, the 
play is a plea for human under- 
standing. "Because we have only 
each other", says Martin in des- 
cribing the play, "we must try to 
listen to the cries of others for our 
own salvation". 

"Summer and Smoke" Is the 
story of the love between a re-

pronounced as he curled up on the 
couch and lighted a cigarette. 
"When they gave me the Hay- 
stack fellowship they wanted me to 
become a man who is familiar with 
Western ideas and knows the Wes- 
tern culture. 

Enlightened Criticism 

"I criticize the United States now 
as strongly as I did before, but 
there is one essential difference. 
Now I criticize the United States 
from within without bitterness. 
Now I am a part of America; it is 
one of the societies to which I 

"The goal of Williams College is, 
"Kim admitted, a "truly liberal ed- 
ucation." There is a danger in the 
attempt to create the liberally ed- 
ucated man. "You may produce a 
man who has neither acquired 
specialized training nor has a- 
chieved the 'comprehensive cultui-e' 
of the liberal education; in short, 
a man who can't do anything well. 
A distinction must be made be- 
tween the 'well-rounded guy' and a 
versatile man." 

The Intellectual 

Kim spent one year before he 
came to the United States in the 
Korean University. "In the better 
universities," he said, there exists 
a good amount of extracurricular 
intellectual activity." 

Kim drew a distinction between 
a college and a university. "In a 
college you train people for citi- 
zenship, while people are trained 
in a university for the Intellectual 
profession of thinking. This is Ko- 
rea's problem," he observed. "We 
must reconcile the need for Indus- 
trialization and the preservation 
of our esthetic culture." 

Both Kim and Yeh expressed a 
desire that the student body sup- 
port strongly the Haystack scho- 
larship fund. "It has given us both 
an opportunity to understand the 
American culture from the stand- 
point of the American," 'Yeh 
pointed out. 

Noted Cellist To Play 
In Chapin Wednesday 

A concert by Pierre Fournler, no- 
ted French cellist, will be given in 
Chapin Hall Wednesday Febraary 

The program will include Stra- 
vinsky's "Suite Italienne," Deb- 
ussy's "Sonata No. 1 in D Minor," 
"Sonata, Opus 69" by Beethoven, 
and Bach's "Suite No. 6 in D Ma- 
jor." The Bach number was writ- 
ten especially for the unaccom- 
panied cello. 

Professor Robert G. Barrow of 
the Music Department calls Foiir- 
nier "one of the three or four best 
living cellists." 

"Giant Of Music 

Foumier's reviews have ranged 
from "giant of music" to "eloquent 
spokesman for centuries of musi- 
cal expression." His music has been 
described as a "gem of lyricism".

Today marks the bej^inniii}^ of a uiii<|ue fund 
drive that will solicit funds from the uiider^rad- 
uales of Williams. Tlie Haystack F'lmd is uiiiciiie 
in that it provides com))l('tc' fiiiaiiciul support 
for selected foieij;;n students atteuciiii^ the col- 

The money for this siipj^oit must come from 
the student liody or the Fellowship will fail. In 
actuality, the Haystack Fund does not solicit on 
the basis of luf^ency or need. The drive is based 
solely on pride— that pride that every student of 
Williams should have in his college. 

For in giving to the Haystack Fund, each stu- 
dent is expressing his confidence in the educa- 
tional and social ex|3eriences that Williams can 
give to a student from a foreign land and cul- 


Jewish services 

There is a guy at the Jewish services who has 
been tearing up the chapel cards of people not 
participating in the services. If they refuse to 
take part, preferring to read their copy of Play- 
boy or Time, he simply destroys their card as 
they leave. 

A courageous gesture. A man with religious con- 
viction who refuses to see it mocked. But only a 

This abuse merely points up something which 
has been screamecl from roofto))s for years. Com- 
pulsory cha|)el does not work at Williams. 

It is easy for students to blame the institution 
itself and complain about boring sermons. The 
Trustees can continue to insist that everyone at- 
tend a specified number of services. The Wil- 
liams College Chapel can claim student apathy 
and anti-religious attitude to be the cause of it 

Compulsory chapel cannot work at Williams be- 
cause of the students' casual attitude toward all 
religion exemplified by the blatant abuse of the 
Jewish services. 

Compulsory chajjel cannot work at Williams be- 
cause of the Trustees' totally unrealistic attitude. 
The so-called religious experience is offered at 
an exceedingly unpopular time and they refuse 
to allow alternatives. 

Com])ulsory chapel cannot work because it is 
not a religious experience. Chapel services are 
usually mere placebos— studiedly non-sectarian— 
for a true challenge to the belief and intellect 
of the student congregation. 

The Williams chajiel problem is a microcosm 
of the problem of American protestantism- 
afraid to do anything. 


To the editors: 

My recent letter to the HECORD on the 
East Ckjllege fire of 1841 re<|uires amplification. 
1 fear 1 gave the iin|)ression that at the very 
moment of the fire the building was full of stu- 
dents. This was not the case. Indeed, had it been 
fully occupied, there |)robably would have been 
no tire. What 1 should have said was that when 
the fire broke out, the college was in session, 
the rooms were in use, hut the students were in 
chapel attending coiii|)ulsory pravers. The loss 
of East Colk'ge untlcr tiiese eircuinstances did 
not result in the abolition of com])ulsorv chai^el, 
although inu|uestionably the common sense of 
the matter mav have called for some such de- 
velopment. For it is a matter of record that the 
great fire losses experienced by Nineteenth Cen- 
tury colleges (few escaped this form of disas- 
ter) generally occurred in unoccupied buildings. 

There is one other aspect of the D. K. E. fire 
on which 1 have seen no coimnent. As you know 
tradition has it that no mere architectural ab- 
sent-mindedness accounts for the sky-scraper pre- 
tensions of the Phi Delta Theta house. It is said 
that tiie family of a young man wlio was denied 
a bid to D. K. E. erected for the Phi Delts, a- 
moiig whom their son was welcome, the present 
chapter house, re(juesting the architect to give 
the i)uilding that extra push iiecessiuy to make 
it tower over Y). K. E. VVhether this story is true 
or not, I do not know, but it is probably too 
late to remove it from Williams lore. This being 
the case, 1 am wondering if the Dekes now |)lan- 
ning the new building will take advantage of the 
opportunity which has presented itself. Has it 
occurred to them that by erecting a building 
more on the scale of their other neighbor, the 
Chi Psis, they can isolate the Phi Delt house in 
its loftiness and turn what was a gesture into a 
truly memorable monument? 

Frederick Rudoli^h 


Professor Mansfield who deals in history and 
literature, has .some unusual ideas on almost 
any subject you can name. 

Of course, he asserts, the war changed many 
as|5ects of the college. Before the war everyone 
u.sed to stay in Williamstown all the time. There 
was one houseparty— and that was a real party. 
"Certainly the effects of the weekly e.xodus have 
shown in the lack of interest in extra-curricular 
activities," he says. 

The RECORD is no longer read by most of 
the students, because the paper is delivered 
through the mail. In the old days, he notes, the 
paper was delivered by an underclassman to 
every subscriber in VVilliamstown at 5 p.m. 
"You couldn't go to dinner without having read 
the RECORD, you'd be left out."

To the editors: 

I think tliat it is time for something to be done about the 
extremely hazardous condition of the rustic, rough-hewu Uw 
stairs that descend from Fayerweather dormitory to the hocke\' 
rink. 1 realize the enormous value of these stairs as a inoiunneiit 
to Williams' pioneering past (a value only exceeded by the late 
Hopkins' Log), but the time has come when the past is endanger- 
injf the present. Approximately one fifth of the stejjs are at a 
)3re|)osterous angle that makes them more; a rainj) than a staircase. 

The railing whicli the Building and Crouuds Department so 
dutifully erected last year becomes only a brake of sorts for those 
who find themselves hurtling down the ramp into the bottomless 
(juagmire that encircles the bottom step. 

Tile solution to this problem, 1 submit, is not another sturdv 
railing, not more sand or less rain, snow and ice but a renovation 
of the entire stairway. This will cost the college untold thousands 
and the students a detour via Spring Street hut to avoid a ])ossiblc 
criminal negligence suit, it must be done. Despite outcries from 
historians and alumni the world over and in the interests of hu 
inanity at large, this job must be undertaken atul accomplished.

On Cantos 


{By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!" and, 
"Barefoot Boy with Cheek.") 


It is no disgrace to be poor. It is an error, but it is no disgrace. 

So if your purse is empty, do not skulk and brood and liide 
your head in shame. Stand tall. Admit your poverty. Admit it 
freely and frankly and all kinds of ko<><1 tliiiig.s will hajjpen to 
you. Take, for instance, the case of lilossom Sigafoos. 

Blossom, an impecunious fresliiiian at an I'la.stern girls' 
college, was smart as a whip and round as a duinpliiig, and 
scarcely a day went by when .she didn't tfct invited to a party 
weekend at one of the nearby men's sl'IiooIs. Hut lilossom never 
accepted. She did not have the mil fare; she did not iiave the 
clothes. Weekend after weekend, while her chissmiites went 
frolicking, hlossom sat alone, saved from utter despair only by 
her pack of iMarlboros, for even an exeli(M|U('r as slim as IMos- 
soni's can alford the joys of iMarlboro joys far beyoiul their 
paltry price: rich, mellow tobaccos, lovingly cnri'd and care- 
fully packed; a new improved filter that works like a charm. 
Croesus him.self could not buy a better cigarette! 

However, Marlboro's most passionate admirers — among 
whose number I am paid to count myself — would not claim 
that Marlboro can entirely replace love and romance, and Blos- 
som grew steadily inoroser. 

kfM M'^^^^^^^^^/^^^/if/:' 

Then one day came a phone call from an intelligent sopho- 
more named Tom O'Shanter at a nearby men's college. "Blos- 
som," said Tom, "I want you to come down next week for the 
barley festival, and I won't take no for an answer." 

"No," said Blossom. 

"Foolish girl," said Tom gently. "I know why you refuse me. 
It is because you are poor, isn't it?" 

"Yes," said Blossom. 

"I will send you a railroad ticket," said Tom. "Also a small 
salami in case you get hungry on tlie train." 

"But I have nothing to wear," said Blos.sorn. 

Tom replied, "I will send you one suit of cashmere, two 
gowns of lace, three slacks of velvet, four shoes of calf, five socks 
of nylon, and a partridge in a pear tree." 

"That is most kind," said Blossom, "hut I fear I cannot 
dance and enjoy myself while back home my i)oor lame brother 
Tiny Tim lies abed." 

"Send him to Mayo Brothers and put it on my tab," said 

"You are terribly decent," said Blf«som, "but I cannot come 
to your party because all the other girls at the party will be 
from rich, distinguished families, and my father is but a humble 

"I will buy him Yosemite," said Tom. 

"You have a great heart," said Blossom. "Hold the phone 
whde I our wise and kindly old Dean of Women whether it 
is proper for me to accept all these gifts." 

She went forthwith and asked the Dean of Women, and 
the Dean of Women laid her wise and kindly old hand on 
Blossom's cheek and said, "Child, let not false pride rob you 
of happiness. Accept these gifts from Tom." 

"I^rd love you, Wise and Kindly," breathed Blossom, drop- 
ping grateful tears into the Dean's reticule. "I must run and 
tell Tom." 

"Yes, run, child," .said tlie Dean, a smile wrinkling her wise 
and kindly old eyes. "And ask him has be got an older brother."

Record Competition 

Candidates for the RECORD 
staff met last week for an in- 
troduction to their work. 

This was the first of three 
meetings designed by the REC- 
ORD to acquaint spring com- 
pels with certain basic rules of 
news and feature writing. The 
competitions are being held to 
expand the staff and improve 
the quality of the newspaper. 

In addition to attendance at 
these meetings, each compet is 
i-equested to submit one story a

Why diversification makes a better all-around man 

DIVERSIFICATION of effort makes for versatility — and ver- 
satility pays off in business as well as on the athletic 
field. We've found that to be especially true here at Koppers. 

Koppers is a widely diversified company — actively en- 
gaged in the research and production of a wide range of re- 
lated and seemingly unrelated products, such as remarkable 
new plastics, jet-engine sound control, wood preservatives, 
steel mill processes, dyestuffs, electrostatic precipitators, coal 
tar chemicals, anti-oxidants and innumerable others. 

Because wc a re diversified, our work is interesting. Through 
a system 1 • il movement, our engineers and manage- 

mcDt person.... are given the opportunity to learn many of 
the diverse operations at Koppers. The result? Versatility. 

While you are moving laterally at Koppers, you are also 
moving up. Your responsibilities arc increased. Your ability 
is evaluated and re-cvaluated. And you are compensated 

You don't have to be with Koppers for 20 years before you 

get somewhere. If you have ability, ideas, spark — you'll move 
ahead, regardless of seniority or tenure. 

At Koppers, you'll stand on your own two feet. You'll get 
responsibility, but you'll also have free rein to do the job the 
way you think it should be done. No one will get in your way. 

Koppers is a well-established company — a leader in many 
fields. Yet, it's a forward-looking company, a young man's 
company. Perhaps, your company. 

Why not find out? Write to the Manager of Manpower 
Planning, Koppers Company, Inc., Pittsburgh 19, Pennsyl- 
vania. Or, see your College Placement Director and arrange 
an appointment with a Koppers representative for the next

Summer & Smoke . . . 

strained and dignified young wo- 
man, Alma, and the town was- 
trel, Doctor John. These two con- 
trasting characters, played by Ca- 
thy Martin and Tony Distler '59, 
change each other through their 
love. John becomes a good citizen, 
while Alma, a minister's daughter, 
turns to a life of abandon. 

In the process of these transi- 
tions, John and Alma have failed 
to come to a complete under- 
standing of each other. Alma ex- 
presses this thought when she 
states, towards the end of the play, 
that they have passed each other, 
"Like two people calling on each 
other, and no one home to an.swer 
t le doar." 

"Summer and Smoke" first ap- 
peared on Broadway in 1949 and 
had only a fair run. Three years 
later Jose Quinlero presented it off 
Broadway, and it was a tremen- 
dous success. Brooks Atkinson call- 
ed it a "tragedy of great power". 
Martin feels that it is a "poetic 
piece", rather than being blatant- 
ly a sermon or a melodrama. 

Martin has personally designed 
the set for the present production. 
He fashioned it according to that 
of the original. The stage is a mul- 
tiple set consisting of sid»s rep- 
resenting the rectory and the doc- 
tor's office and the middle of the 
stage as a park. The two sides are 
the homes of John and Alma, while 
the park is the common ground

An human anatomical chart 
plays a significant part in the pro- 
duction. It represents John's view 
of man as nothing more than what 
is seen on the chart. Alma feels 
that there is a "thin smoke" in 
man which makes him different 
from animals. John's conversion to 
her point of view is seen as the 
play progresses.

Williams Ski Team Places Fourth; 
Middlebury Takes Winter Carnival 

By BUI Anderson 

The Williams Winter Carnival 
was won in a spectacular demon- 
stration of skiing by Middlebury 
College. Host Williams placed 
fourth scoring 534.6 points, behind 
Middlebury's 594.7, Dartmouth's 
545.9, and the University of New 
Hampshii-e's 544.01. 

The Carnival began Saturday 
morning with a controlled down- 
hill race on Thunderbolt trail. 
Middlebury walked away with the 
downhill, scoring six of the eight 
highest times. Panther freshman 
Gordie Eaton won the downhill, 
with a time of 51.2 seconds. Al 
Lamson also of Middlebury, took 
2nd, and Hartley Paul of Dart- 
mouth took 3rd. Jeff Fisher's time 
of 57.9 seconds placed only 12th, as 
the Ephs fell into the cellai- posi- 
tion in the downhill. 

The Slalom was held Saturday 
afternoon on the Hell Dive of the 
Thunderbolt Ti-ail. Two inches of 
packed snow over six inches of base 
made skiing conditions excellent 
for both the downhill and the sla- 
lom. However, the position of the 
gates in the slalom was such that 
the course was extremely difficult. 

Middlebury again dominated the 
race, with Eaton, Lamson, and 
Marsh taking the first three pla- 
ces. The Ephmen, rallying from 
the morning's defeat, pulled sec- 
ond, while Dartmouth fell to the 
fourth spot behind University of 
New Hampshire. Jeff Fisher plac- 
ed fi[;li. while Phillips and Rozen- 
daa! filled the eighth and ninth 
Poa.Lons respectively. 

Cross Country 

The eight-mile cross-country 
course was won by Pekka Lahden- 
para of Middlebury in 48 minutes, 
17 seconds. Al Lane, University of 
New Hampshire, was second, and 
Pete Ryland, Dartmouth, was 
third. Jeff Fisher crossed the line 
sixth, while of the other Ephmen, 
Brooks Stoddard crossed eighth. 
Slate Wilson ninth, and Eliot Cole- 
man nth. 

Middlebuiy took the race, with 
Dartmouth second and Williams 
third. At the end of three events 
the Ephs held second position, four 

tenths of a point ahead of the 
Dartmouth Indians. 


The University of New Hamp- 
shire prevented Middlebury from 
winning every event by taking first 
and second in the jumps. Jump- 
ing ace Einar Dohlen placed first 
with a distance of 105.6 feet. John 
Robes placed second, while Dart- 
mouth's Pete Hawks placed third. 

Williams placed fourth in the 
jumps, beating only Yale. Brooks 
Stoddard came in 12th, while 
Phillips and Rozendaal took 14th 
and 15th respectively. 

There would have been no jump 
at all Sunday had it not been for 
the Mt. Greylock Ski Club and 
members of the freshman class, 
who cooperated with the Williams 
Outing Club in preparing the jump, 
which was virtually a field of Ice 
on Sunday morning. 

Worcester Hoopsters 
Edge Williams Frosh 

Playing probably their poorest 
game of the season, the Williams 
freshman cagers were defeated by 
Worcester Academy, 63-57, Sat- 
urday night. 

Numerous mistakes and exces- 
sive fouling were instrumental in 
the Eph defeat. Also a factor was 
the tight Worcester zone defense 
which proved extremely effective 
on their small court. 

The Worcester team spm-ted out 
to an early 10-2 lead, but the Eph- 
men surged back to take a 15-12 
advantage as the fh-st quarter end- 
ed. At halftime, the score was SO- 
SO. The Ephs trailed by only two 
points with two minutes to play, 
but three violations at key points 
cost them the game. 

Mahland Nets 19 

Bob Mahland led the Williams 
attack with 19 points. Jay John- 
ston notched 16, while Dave Rit- 
chie tallied 11. Bob Purdy of Wor- 
cester led all scorers with an out- 
standing 31 point performance. 

The loss was the Ephmen's se- 
cond and broke a five game win- 
ning streak. Tomon'ow Williams 
faces a strong Army plebe squad at 
West Point.

The Amherst hockey team scor-

and stopped a third period rally to 
defeat the Williams sextet 4-3 at 
Amlierst Saturday. 

Amherst scored first as center 
Crosby found the mark unassisted 
at 6:07 of the first period. A min- 
ute later George Lowe tied the 
score after taking a pass from Tom 

The Lord Jeffs gained the lead 
again when Church passed to Hut- 
chinson for a goal at 12:26. Less 
than a minute later, Hutchinson 
scored again, this time on a pass 
from Bradford. 

Second Period 

The second period was marred 
with six penalties as both teams 
scored while the other was at a 
disadvantage. Early in the period, 
Larry Hawkins converted a Mike 
Grant pass into a goal while two 
Amherst skaters were sitting oui, 
penalties. Neimeyer then scored 
what proved to be the wirming 
goal at 8:50 while two Williams 
players were in the penalty box. 

George Lowe scored Williams' 
third goal at 10:39 of the last per- 
iod, assisted by Hawkins and Ohly. 
But the Amherst goalie. Brown, 
who made 29 saves in all, shut the 
door on the Ephs in their bid to

Varsity Downs Siena; 
Foul Shooting Crucial 

By Al Miller 

Saturday night the Williams bas- 
ketball team, although outscored 
from the floor 24 field goals to 16 
still managed to send Siena down 
to a 70-62 defeat. The Williams 
squad hit 38 out of 43 foul shots 
which provided the margin of vic- 
tory. Coach Al Shaw attributed the 
scarcity of field goals on Williams' 
part to conservative play and the 
abundance of Siena fouls. 

The two teams traded points 
throughout the first half and the 
first ten minutes of the second half 
pretty evenly. Siena held a one 
point edge at the end of the first 
half, 27-26. After ten minutes of 
the second half had elapsed, the 
Ephmen pulled ahead by five 
points and from that point on Sie- 
na was unable to regain the lead. 
Hedeman High For Williams 

Bill Hedeman, hitting with his 
accustomed accuracy from the foul 
line, was high man for Williams 
with 21 points. Parker, Weaver, 
and Morton also hit in double fi- 
gures with 13, 12, and 10 points 

Coach Al Shaw spread his praise 
evenly, mentioning the fine re- 
bounding of Hedeman, Weaver, 
and Morton, and the fine floor play 
of Captain Willmott and Parker. 
Both teams employed zone de- 
fenses, and Coach Shaw was happy 
with the success of the Williams 
zone which caused Siena to take 
most of their shots from the out- 

Army Wednesday 

This Wednesday, the Williams 
squad will journey to West Point 
for one of their toughest games of

cord going into the Williams game. 
Among their wins were victories 
over Siena and Amherst, by the 
scores of 77-57 and 75-56 respec- 
tively. Army's two forwards Kouns 
and Sager will be the men that Al 
Shaw's forces will have to stop. 
Kouns is averaging over 22 points 
a game and Sager is averaging 21.

Sports Corner 

By Bob Pyle 

None but the highest praise 
from all corners of the Williams 
campus is being heard about the 
varsity swimming team. Coached 
by Bob Muir and led by Captain 
Chip Ide, the Eph mermen have 
broken and rebroken records In 
compiling a 4-1-1 mark thus far. 

In the Syracuse meet Buck Ro- 
binson set a New England Inter- 
collegiate and college record with 
a 2;30.2 in the 200 yard breast 
stroke. Against Colgate he lower- 
ed this standard by one second. 
Swimming in the Olympic and Pan 
American Games Fund meet, Ro- 
binson set a New England AAU and 
college mark with a 2;45.6 time. 

Williams' 400 yard medley relay 
team of Henry Tatem, Robinson, 
Neil Devaney, and Ide has also 
shattered two New England stan- 
dards. Against Springfield, they 
turned in a 4:00.2 scorecard for a 
20 yard pool mark and against 
Bowdoin last Saturday, a 4:00.9 
one for a 25 yard pool record. 

Williams should again finish 
first in the New Englands, al- 
though strong competition is forth- 
coming from Springfield and 
Brown. Should the medley relay 
team, the freestyle relay team, or 
Robinson in the breast stroke be 
successful at Yale in the Easterns, 
Williams' sports enthusiasts may 
see entries in the Nationals for the 
first time since 1955.

Faculty Lectures Overstep Faculty- 
Student Lines; Stress Congeniality 

By Paul Samuelson 

The faculty lecture stands a- 
mong the many unique and abiding 
traditions of Williams College. Al- 
though it is not as old as the "Ep- 
ic of Eph Williams" nor as spirit- 
ed as the annual Williams-Am- 
herst football rally, it is distinctive. 
Each lecture boasts a rare com- 
bination of alluring congeniality, 
dignified simplicity, and individual 

Dual Purpose 

According to Professors Law- 
rence Beals, Anson Piper, and 
Franzo Crawford, chairmen of the 
Faculty Lecture Committee, the 
lectures today have a dual purpose 
pose. Beals maintains, "Each 
speaker talks on a topic in his own 
field. His treatment has to be non- 
technical, informative, and on a 
readily understandable level." Pi- 
per stated more specifically that, 
"The purpose of the faculty lec- 
ture is to transcend departmental 
lines. Students and faculty alike 
are afforded insights into depart- 
ments they might not otherwise 
sample. The student may also learn 
how faculty members spend their 
free time." 


The history of the lectures is the 
history of the establishment and 
preservation of this intimacy. The 
informal talk traces its Inception 
to the period immediately before 
World War I. Its beginning came 
as the direct result of the insis- 
tence of the wife of Professor 
James B. Pratt to know more a- 
bout their friends on an intellec- 
tual basis. With the help of her 
husband and Karl Weston, founder 
of the Williams Art Department, 
Mrs. Pratt started the institution. 

The faculty lecture is not with- 
out its formalities. To the present 
day an unwritten style and form 
exacting sixty minute minimum 
and maximum exist. Despite this, 
the talk itself is extremely con- 
genial. Several years ago Profes- 
sor Barrow accompanied his lec- 
ture on "Sound" with organ pipe 
demonstrations. While delivering 
a lecture on "Population Dynam- 
ics" recently, Professor Grant

demonstrated his point by slipping 
little red newts into aquaria while 
he spoke. 

Piper, Beals and Crawford ex- 
hibit enormous pride in the high 
iiuality of the lecture. As Beals 
puts it, "Speaking before friends 
and neiglibors on a topic closest 
to him, the lecturer is confronted 
with an atmosphere demanding 
perfection." Piper states, "Lectur- 
ers must make the best possible 
impression on their colleagues. 
Hence a deeper concern and a 
well-polished job result." 
Faculty Lectures 

The lecture series was instituted 
to fill a gap during the bleak per- 
iod from the beginning of second 
semester to Spring Vacation. 

The mid-point of this year's of eight lectures is fast ap- 
proaching. Next Thursday Profes- 
sor Orville T. Murphy of the His- 
tory Department will deliver the 
fourth lecture of the series. It will 
concern the subject of "What the 
French Thought of George Wash- 
ington." The final four lectures of 
the series will deal with "Anton 
Webern and the Music of the Fu- 
ture"; "Johann Michael Fischer, 
Major German Architect"; "A 
Time to Gather Stones Together"; 
and "O'Casey Now" — subjects all 
in keeping with the traditionally 
distinctive flavor of the faculty 

News Bureau's Tasks, 
Activities Will Expand 

"Anyone who takes any sort of 
remote interest in athletics has the 
opportunity to work with the coa- 
ches and within the athletic sys- 
tem here, and at the same time to 
provide a service to the College," 
said recently appointed News Bu- 
reau president Dick Gallop '60. 

An expansion of the News Bu- 
reau's activities will be Inaugurat- 
ed with the addition, on February 
23, of former Berkshire Eagle re- 
porter John Hitchcock '50 to the 
staff of News Director Ralph Ren- 
zi '43. According to Renzi, the 
News Bureau will handle all ath- 
letic publicity and hometown news- 
paper releases. Supervision of these 
activities will be removed from the 
office of Athletic Director Frank 
R. Thorns Jr '30 becoming Hitch- 
cock's primary duty.. 

Gallop pointed out that, up until 
now, Williams has been one of the 
few small colleges in New Eng- 
land with an entirely student- 
run athletic publicity office.

cause we don't have the time or 
the newspaper contacts that a full- 
time man would have."

Tfiiiu'sscc VVilliains' "Siiiimicr and Smoke," a drama in three acts, was jirt'seiited at tlie Adams

"Studied, Polished" 

Although playing to embarrass- 
mt'ly few people, Cathy Martin 
and P. Antonie Distler gave two of 
the most studied and polished 
performances of recent Cap and 
Bells productions. Mrs. Martin as 
the wretched Alma, torn between 
love and her father's code of re- 
spectability, was both engagingly 
flighty in the beginning and beau- 
tifully pathetic as the fallen an- 
nel at the end. As the result of 
this brilliant understanding, Alma 
emerges in the end as a fully sym- 
pathetic and tragic character. 

Distler likewise gave a forceful 
performance of the siirner-turned- 
■saint, young Doctor John. Achiev- 
ing a near professional standard 
throughout most of the play, there 
WHS, however, not quite as much 
of a change from the "lecher" of 
the summer to the mature doctor 
of the winter. Beneath his was- 
trel's body, there shows perhaps, 
jiisL a little too much ".soul:" the 
fault herein, however, lies more 
Willi Williams' dialogue than with 
Distler's portrayal. 

However, at times the two lead- 
ing players vastly overshadowed

Lecture Program 
To Be Revamped 

The student-faculty Lecture 
Committee at its meeting 'Wednes- 
day formulated plans for a stan- 
dardized system of handling lec- 
turers by the committee and for 
the self -perpetuation of the stu- 
dent section. 

Joint chairmen Fred H, Stock- 
ing of the English department and 
William H, Edgar '59, will compile 
a handbook for committee mem- 
bers detailing the arrangements 
which must be made for each lec- 
turer. After the committee has 
nominated a man as a guest speak- 
er, one faculty member and one 
student will be assigned to make 
all arrangements with the speaker. 

New Members 

Edgar, working with other up- 
perclasa members of the Commit- 
tee, will nominate thi'ee or four 
students as members at the first 
meeting in March. Selection will 
be based on interest exhibited in 
the business of the committee, 
with an attempt to draw members 

as its Secretary-Treasurer. 

President White stated that the 
future of the Social Council lies 
in its use as a "forum of opinion 
resulting in group action." This 
group action should take place 
not only among the fraternity rep- 
resentatives themselves, but also 
between the Social and College 

Wydick's Suggestions 

Dick Wydick, the outgoing pre- 
sident, made several suggestions 
for future areas of action. Chief 
among these is the continued pro- 

not by any means a foolproof def- 
inition; what people believe to be 
true is often far more Important. 

George Washington 

A case in point, said Murphy, is 
George Washington, The French 
were "unanimous in their approval 
and praise of Washington", whose 
image appealed to their taste. To 
them, Washington was a god-like 
figure, "the symbol of the citizen 
soldier and personification of the 
Republican hero". 

A misconception that the Fi'ench 
held was that Washington was a 
military hero. His victories were 
magnified, his defeats were passed 
off as "cunning maneuvers" or at- 
tributed to his mythical mistress. 
Indeed, one of the principal reas- 
ons for the final signing of the 
Franco-American Alliance of 1778 
was not only the British defeat at 
Saratoga but also the belief among 
the French ministers that Wash- 
ington had nearly defeated Howe 
at Germantown, 

Alumni Review Marks 50th Year; 
Son Of First Editor Views Changes 

"First and last, we are devoted to 
Williams College, well pleased as 
to its present and optimistic to- 
ward its future", states the Feb- 
ruary issue of the "Alumni Re- 
view," quoting from the first is- 
sue published exactly 50 years ago. 

The lead article in the 50bh An- 
niversary Issue is by Talcott M, 
Banks, Jr, '28, son of the first edi- 
tor of the "Review", T, M, Banks 
'90, Banks reviews the early history 
of the publication, inaugurated by 
the Williams College Alumni Ath- 
letic Association, 

"Justice and Wisdom" 

"With broad changes in form, 
but less in substance," the "Re- 
view" has chronicled the activi- 
ties and issues at Williams over a 
period of years that it has more 
than doubled Its size. But, the ear- 

ly issues discussed many of the 
same problems that are viewed by 
the present editor, Ralph B, Ren- 
zi '43, In 1909, the "Review" was 
concerned with Inadequate faculty 
salaries, fraternities vs, scholar- 
ship, the mechanics of rushing, 
and "the Justice and wisdom of 
subjugating Amherst," 

Banks also notes the gradual 
changes in the college. We are no 
longer anxious about vacant dor- 
mitory rooms and lost balloon 
races. The "cane nish" has died, 
the new curriculum came In 1911, 
and World War I dispelled much 
of Williams' Insularity, Banks sees 
that throughout these gradual 
changes of scene, "the 'Review' was 
a medium for expounding a phil- 
osophical viewpoint extending far 
beyond the immediate concerns of 
the college." 

Donations Slow In Haystack Drive; 
Fresh, Houses Still To Contribute 

Donations to the Haystack Scholarship Fund have been com- 
iiii^ ill very slowly, Wednesday was chosen for the one-day driye, 
but as of Thursday night only $685 had been collected, A con- 
tribution of S1.50 is beinj; asked of each student. 

Chairman of the drive, Bob Stegeinan, expressed disappoint- 
ment in the results as a whole, A number of fraternities, he added, 

had given full support, and two 
houses had given 100 per cent. 
More to Donate 
By Fi-iday 11 fraternities had 
made donations, either in part or 
in full, and nine freshman entries 
had turned in collections. Other 
entries had not yet organized col- 
lections but planned to have the 
money in by the end of the week, 
Stegeman reported that there had 
been some adverse sentiment to 
the drive, but that generally the 
student body was In support of 
the fund. 

The Haystack Scholarship Fund 
was established in 1956 by the 
Williams College Chapel Board to 
finance foreign students at Wil- 
liams. Warner Kim '59, and Noel 
Yeh '61, are present Haystack 
scholars. Both are outstanding

The Haystack Fund Is brought 
closer to the student body than 
other scholarship funds because it 
is dependent entirely on student 
contributions. The more money 
donated, the more scholarships can 
be offered. The scholarship does 
not cover tuition but only room 
and board. The college waives tu-

The Social Council should also 
play an important part in the

Dean Robert R. R. Brooks, as an 
adviser, reiterated his hope ex- 
pressed last week that the Social 
Council might grow in importance. 
"Your prestige will not be in- 
creased," he insisted, "by sitting 
back and heckling the College 
Council, The Social Council may 
recapture its prestige only by serv- 
ing a useful function," 

Other areas for the action of the 
SC suggested were sponsorship of 
the faculty lecture series and a 
repeat of the successful fraternity 
skit night. 

Artist Fournier Awes 
Chapin Hall Audience 

Over one hundred people at- 
tended the concert by world-fa- 
mous cellist Pierre Fournier 'Wed- 
nesday in Chapin Hall, Jean-Pi- 
erre Marty accompanied him on 
the piano. 

The hall hushed as Fournier, 
cradling the cello against his body, 
tested the instrument's tuning 
carefully. Tumultuous applause, 
however, followed the completion 
of his first number, a Beethoven 
sonata, and of the other pieces 
thereafter. The whole perform- 
ance consisted of the sonata, Op. 
69; Bach's suite No, 6 in D ma- 
jor, Debussy's Sonata in D minor, 
and the "Suite Italienne" by Stra- 
vinsky, The enthusiastic applause 
induced the performers to add an 
encore, Ravel's "Halanera," 

Critical acclaim was not lacking, 
Mr, Thomas Griswold, one of the 
Williams Music Department mem- 
bers, stated that he had "no re- 
servations at all" about the per- 
formance, Griswold further said 
that, however over-used the 
phrase, the best words to describe 
Fournler's tour de force were that 
he "completely transcended the 
limitations of his instrument."

social council 

Seven presidents of Williams fraternities de- 
clined nomination to the jircsidency of their iii- 
terfraternity Social Coniicil Tufsday iiinht. 

It is unnecessary to find out exactly what their 
individual reason.s for doinij; so were; it is a safe 
bet that they were not all so intensely ()ceii|Med 
elsewhere that they would not have enoujfh time 
to devote to the job. 

Tom White and the three others who accepted 
nomination deserve congratidations because they 
were willing to run— an unlikely subject for con- 
gratulation under ordinary circumstances. 

The Social Council of 1959 faces the c|uestion: 
is the SC a ho|)eless anachronism, or a mere 
eommuuicatious channel for the administiation 
to the fraternities? Since the establishment of 
the College Council five years ajfo, the frater- 
nity presidents as a jroveruing body have lost 
immense power. Today it functions almost sole- 
ly as a means of communications between the 
heads of houses. This is a valuable function but 
it is not adequate as a purpose and it does not 
constitute a ])Ower. 

Dean of the College Robert R. R. Brooks has 
stated several times the need for the SC to find 
itself in the new status of undergraduate self- 
government. Certaiulv its ]5inpose is not to fight 
the actions of the College Council, nor should it 
merely crawl into a corner of its meeting room 
and recognize its "inferiority". 


summer & smoke 

Twenty-one students witnessed the premiere of 
what is possibly the best production done at the 
Adams Memorial Tlieatre in many years. 

It was eminently rewarding for the audience to 
participate in an artistic achievement by ama- 
teur players, most of them students. The offer- 
ing was not the annual musical; the i^lay was 
not a popular recent Broadway smash hit. It was 
a play which eminently combined the purposes 
of "educational theatre:" it was intellectually 
challenging and theatrically satisfying.

last time tonight. See it. 


Rohr Discusses Interests; 
Comments On Small College 

"I was not a history j^ " 
major as an undergrad- p* ' 
nate. What interested , 
me in history was my 
experience in the war 
and with the )5ost-war 
military government of 
Germany." The speaker 
is Ohio - born Donald 
G. Rohr, Assistant Pro- 
fessor of History. 

Leaning hack in his 
chair, Rohr commenced 
a discussion of his spec- 
ial fields of interest. ROHR: Lee asked 
These include a trans- "how's It going" 
lation of the experience of a Cerinan officer-ob- 
server with the Confederate army. "My interest 
in it is from the Eurojjean point of view; particu- 
larly, die military lessons which European ohser- 
\ers learned or failed to learn." 

The account, written by one Justus Scheihert, 
concerns itself with the battles ot Chaneellorsville 
and Gettysburg, where Scheibert came in with 
J. E. B. Stuart's cavalry and climbed a tree, com- 
manding a fine view of the whole battlefield. He 
sat there all day, observing, and had has meals 
sent u]5— "just like a flagpole sitter. The story is," 
Rohr went on to say, "that Lee rode underneath 
Scheibert's tree and called 'How's it going'?" 

A war veteran and 1943 graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Toronto, he worked as a civilian for 
the ]oost-war military government of Germany. 
He retnined in 1947 to "Toronto where he received 
his M. A. He took his Ph.D. at Harvard after com- 
ing to Williams in 1953. 

Small College Comments 

One of the unicjue aspects of a small college, 
Rohr concluded, is that "in a small college the 
early years are more pleasant and, maybe, more 
profitable than in a large university.' He j^ointed 
out, however, that the good university student 
may very well come to know his ])rofessors better 
than the good student in a small college. He felt 
that this problem could be solved by having the 
fraternities invite faculty advisors representing 
each of the Williams curriculum divisions. "A 
physics major," he pointed out, "would be more 
interested in talking to a faculty man from the 
science quad," because of the common academic

225 Colleges Now Participate In 
Brooks' Plan For Faculty Children 

J. IteynolilaTob. CcWInslon-Bilem, N. G. 

Williams College Is the head- 
quarters of a national program de- 
signed to enable the children of 
faculty members to attend the col- 
leges of their choice without pay- 
ing tuition. The idea was initiat- 
ed by Dean R. R. R. Brooks in 
1946 and has grown to a mem- 
bership of 225 colleges. 

Tills program is essentially "a 
barter system under which all the 
members (institutions above the 
level of secondary schools) agree 
to accept the admissible children 
of each other's faculty on a bal- 
anced basis," stated Brooks, Thus 
for each faculty child it accepts, 
a college may send to another In- 
stitution the child of one of its 
faculty members. 

The idea for such a program 
came to Brooks immediately after 

the war, when salaries of teachers 
"were so low In comparison to tlie 
inflation of the period that some 
measure to ease their f inane Jul 
burden was requisite." In 1954 Dm 
program received a grant from tlie 
Ford Foundation. 

System's One Defect 

The system's one defect. Brooks 
noted, is the inability of an insi,- 
tution which is very popular o 
balance the influx of faculty ch] - 
dren by sending out the offspri; <i 
of its own faculty. To remedy tins 
situation, many colleges have :i- 
dopted a "cash scholarship gran:' 
program. Under this system, ,i 
college will finance that part f 
the cost of educating a faculiv 
child which is equivalent to li.s 
own tuition.

At about 3 P.M. on an afternoon in August (Eastern 
DaylightSchaefer Time) Doctor Chicago took a walk. 
The town .stood knee-deep in summer heat, the kind 
of heat that depresses the soul as much as the body. 

For the third time that day he found himself in front 
of the same neighborhood grocery. He went in and 
asked for a cold six-pak of Schaefer beer. The old 
lady who waited on him wore an Indian headdress 
and a buckskin jacket. She acted as if she might 
know him. He fixed her with a baleful glance, and 
she retreated in some confusion. 

On the way home a neighbor asked Doctor Chicago 
to look in on his wife. The man said she had cracked 
up. She had been in the kitchen singing, "What d'ya 
hear in the best of circles?" when an old radio that 
had not worked for years blared out, "Schaefer all 
around!" This had made her crack up. Doctor Chi- 
cago examined her and said that she was merely 
suffering from the extreme heat. 

Soon he was sitting in his living room drinking a cold 

glass of Schaefer. "It has a 

.smooth round taste," he said 

to his wife. Suddenly their 

broken TV set came on, and 

an announcer said ". . . never 

sharp, never flat." "My 

time for suffering from the 

extreme heat has come," 

Doctor Chicago laughed. 

( 5 

But he did not begin suffering from the extreme heat 
until days later. Then, as in a dream, he recalled 
someone giving him a welcome refreshing sip of 
Schaefer from time to time. When he was well, he 
spoke to his wife of this. 

"Your mother gave it to you." 

"What mother? Mother Chicago? Does she wear an 
Indian headdress?" 

"That's right. So you did see her. She said she had 
met you in a store someplace— she wanted to speak 
to you, but you scared her away!" He sat by the 
window, thinking of his mother and the weather and 
the Schaefer for a long time.

Puckmen Victors 
Over AIC Team 

The Williams hockey team easily 
defeated an American Interna- 
tional College team 7-2 here on 

Bob Lowden and Jim Fisher each 
scored in a slow first period that 
closed with the purple skaters 
leading 2-0. Larry Hawkins, Mike 
Grant, and George Lowe all col- 
lected goals In a rough second 
period that ended with a disputed 
referee's call, 2 major misconduct 
penalties assessed, and one player 
ejected from the game. 

Fisher took a pass from Lowden 
and beat Otto Welker, AIC's stur- 
dy goalie, at 7:47 of the third peri- 
od, extending the home team's 
lead to 6-0. But Dave Keaney 
broke up Al Lapey's bid for a 
shutout when he scored on a 
screen shot at 12:24.

Leading 6-1 Coach Bill McCor- 
mick replaced Lapey with Dick 
Alford, who made several fine 
saves as the visitors put on a spir- 
ited attack in the closing minutes 
when the Ephs were shorthanded. 
Bob Barton scored AIC's final 
soal on a screen shot at 15:44. 

Twice AIC removed Welker from 
ihe nets in favor of an extra wing 
n the closing minutes. The first

rounded the defensemen, and slid 
the puck into an open cage.

Brimmer followed by beating his

The Army team featured a well 
balanced scoring attack and good 
rebounding in defeating Williams 
for the 13 th time in the fourteen 
meetings between the two schools. 
Led by Junior sensation Kouns, 
who netted 22 points, and Klosek 
and Sager, who had 22 and 20 re- 
spectively, the well conditioned 
Cadets proved to be too much for 
a scrappy Williams club. 
Morton Gets 26 

Jeff Morton led the Ephmen 
with 26 points, 16 of them coming 
on free throws. He got strong sup- 
port from sophomore Sam Weav- 
er who finished with 18, and Cap- 
tain Pete Willmott with 11. On 
the strength of their scoring, Wil- 
liams managed to match the Ca- 
dets pretty evenly in the first half 
and at half time Army held a 49-43 
edge. The second half started in 
much the same manner, but after 
five minutes had elapsed. Army 
broke through the Williams zone 
to take a 75-55 lead. Prom there 
they coasted in.

Army Rallies To Top 
Frosh Squad, 72-71 

A well-conditioned Army plebe 
squad fought back in the game's 
waning moments to nip the Eph 
freshman cagers, 72-71, at West 
Point Saturday. 

Williams held a commanding 
lead throughout most of the game 
and elected to freeze the ball with 
five minutes remaining. The su- 
perior conditioning of the Army 
squad showed, however, as the 
Cadets were able to penetrate the 
freeze and force the tired Eph- 
men into several mistakes at key 

Giving his outstanding offensive 
performance of the season, Dave 
Ritchie was the top Williams scor-

All eyes were on tall, self-as- 
sured Dick Hoehn as he stepped 
onto the court for the No. 1 match. 
Greg Tobin produced a ball and 
started practicing with the red- 
headed Ivy Leaguer, As the match 
began, the opponents proved even- 
ly matched, as Tobin's accuracy 
and Hoehn's positioning broughi 
the first game to a 13-13 tie. To- 
bin strengthened, pounding Vas 
ball around the arena to build up 
a 3-1 lead in the best-of-five ov- 
ertime. But Hoehn came back 
twice, and then again, making a 
shot from his knees to tie and then 
win with a fantastic corner shot 
at the end of a prolonged volley. 

After this 18-17 triumph he con- 
tinued to hit his corner shots, but 
Tobin's power was showing, and 
Hoehn was forced to win his sec- 
ond game in another overtime, 18- 
16. In the third game Tobin was 
visibly tired and again and again 
the man in green tallied on low, 
hard drives. Behind 12-6, the Eph 
rallied, however, to pull into a tie, 
before succumbing to the unclutch-

"Undeniably Rewarding" 

Despite weaknesses in some of 
its characters, "Summer and 
Smoke" as an entity within itself 
was inspired by its principals and 
the fine direction of William J. 
Martin. It emerged as a stimulat- 
ing, entertaining and undeniably 
rewarding evening of theatre.

an emotional strain on the audi- 
ence as on the actors, whom he 
forcefully drags through love, 
hate, sex and psychoses. These are 
the tools which Williams employs 
to paint his portraits of human 
weaknesses, strengths, confusions 
and resolutions. Whether a char- 
acter is able to overcome his pas- 
sions and rise above them or whe- 
ther he is forced by his own weak-

STUDENT'S Russian 
Issue Draws Praise 

by Robert Lliiberij: and 
John Mayhcr 

Last May, Rhodes Scholar Paul 
Dodyk, Chairman of the Amherst 
STUDENT, began formulating a 
plan for a program of cultural ex- 
change between Amherst and the 
University of Moscow. The plan, 
suggested by his Russian immi- 
grant father and two cousins at 
the University of Moscow, evolved 
as a survey of higher education in 
the United States. Published by 
the STUDENT on January 29, 1959, 
the issue was delayed in being sent 
to Moscow because of Soviet red 

Issue Praised 

Praise for this issue as an im- 
aginative stride towards interna- 
tional student understanding has 
come from such varied sources as 
the United States Information 
Agency and the University of Ny- 
asa in Southern Rhodesia. The 
U. S. I. A. has requested five hun- 
dred additional copies for distri- 
bution in its propaganda program, 
and excerpts from the issue have 
been inserted in the Congressional 
Record. The Soviet Committee on 
Youth Education expressed its ap- 
preciation for the preparation of 
this i.ssue. 

Interest in Fraternities 

The topics covered by the arti- 
cles in the issue were designed by 
Dodyk to answer questions most 
often asked him about American 
education by Russian students 
with whom he was in contact last 
summer in Washington, D. C. 
"Fraternity life was of great inter- 
est to them," he said, "because 
from their viewpoint the commun- 
al fraternity life is an example of 
collectivization in an othei-wise 
capitalistic, anarchistic society." 

The Russian students also held 
the belief that only the privileged 
aristocracy was financially able to 
attend college, and for this reason 
the editors included articles on the

Houseparty Poll, 
Hires Orchestra 

The preparation and distribution ' 
of a questionnaire about House- J 
parties is the first project of the 
Houseparty Committee under the 
chairmanship of Rich Herzog '60. 
The qi'jstionnaire aims to elicit 
student opinion on suggested inno- 
vations in the structure of House- 

Possible questions cover topics 
ranging from a return to the old 
system of hiring two bands Friday 
night — a comparatively unknown, 
but danceable band as well as a 
noted college or professional jazz 
group — to projected changes in the 
Saturday night program. There 
will also be a space for "write-in" 
suggestions and criticisms. 
Spring Houseparties 

The Emba.ssy Orchestra has been 
hired for the Friday all-college 
dance on Spring Houseparties. 
Herzog stated, and an outdoor con- 
cert is being considered for early 
Sunday afternoon. The senior class 
will run the weekend. 

Lawrence Art Exhibit 
Features Dadaist Art 

An exhibition. "Art and the 
Found Object," opened at the 
Lawrence Art Museum Sunday and 
will continue through March 15. 
Early experiments and contemp- 
orary works illustrate theories in- 
troduced in tlie early decades of 
this century by the Cubists and 
Dadaists, stressing the significance 
ot everyday objects. 

Included in the exhibition are 
"ready-mades," complete objects 
wliich are at hand and which by 
reason of the artist's selectivity 
are considered to belong in the 
realm of creativity. 

Illustrating the Dada tradition 
are recent works by younger ar- 
tists who make use of found ob- 
jects. The amusing "Middle Aged 
Couple" by Richard Stankiewicz 
is made of gas tanks, pipes, and 

Glee Club Picks Doig And Bishop; 
Hall And Stern Attain Band Posts 


Recent elections placed Robert 
Stern '60, president and David 
Hall '61, student leader of the 
Williams College Band. Other 
elected officers included Steve 
Ross '60, vice-president and David 
Rust '60, librarian. 

Stern admits that the position 
of president of the band Is "more 
or less an honorary position." The 
only major duties assigned to the 
office are formulating policy and 
arranging trips. The actual lead- 
ing of the band is performed by 
the student leader and the con- 
trol of music is handled by the 

Plans For Next Fall 

Next fall the band plans to ex- 
pand to about sixty members. It 
will perform at all the home foot- 
ball games as well as the Wesley- 
an contest. Stern is presently in 
the process ot revamping the for- 
mations of the group. He hopes to 
employ new and better marching 
techniques. "All and all," said 
Stern, "the band is going to Im- 
prove tremendously within the 
next few years." 

Associate Professor Irwin Shain- 
man of the Music Department is 
the band's faculty director. 

Glee Club 

Bill Doig '60, recently was elect- 
ed president and Newell Bishop 
'60, appointed manager of the 
Williams Glee Club. New associate 
managers are David Tenney '61, 
and Andy Morehead '61. 

Joint Concert 

Bishop was especially enthusi- 
astic about the joint concert with 
Sarah Lawrence coming up here on 
April 18 and 25. "This is the 
biggest thing we have done all 
year," he said, "because it's dif- 
ferent." As a change from the 
conventional work of the great 
masters, the Glee Club will per- 
form "Le Roi David" by Honneger. 

Bishop went on to describe the 
work as "a contemporary varia- 
tion on the traditional oratorio 
form including unusual orchestra- 
tion and actual spoken dialogue." 

Evensong Service 

Sunday the Glee Club will sing 
an evensong service with the 
Smith College Chorus at St. 
Thomas' Church, New York, to be 
followed by a concert the next 
Saturday at Smith. "The Found- 
ling Hospital Anthem" by Handel 
will be sung. 

Fraternity Treasurers 
To Present New Aims 

III a joint HK'i'tiuf; oi tlit' old and new Iratcrnitv Trea.surers' 
(>)uncils toiiij^lit, <)iit-<^c)inj^ i^rcsident [olui D. Phillips ',59 will 
present a jjroposal lor the ereatioii of a campus business inanajfe- 
nient system. Tills will he his ('ouncil's final action on fraternity 

financial practices. 

Under the proposal, the new 
Treasurer's Council would elect 
not only a president but two 
members to act with him as an 
executive committee. This group 
would work jointly with the offi- 
cers of the Graduate Committee 
of Social Units to study and draw 
up a program of campus business 
management and engage a resi- 
dent manager to carry it out. 
An Adviser 

The basis of the plan, opera- 
tional at Amherst since the late 
1930's, is to have an experienced 
man act as financial adviser to the 
fifteen houses, audit their books, 
and generally aid them in realiz- 
ing and maintain business-like 
standards in fraternity financial 

Employed by the fraternities, 
this manager would study and 
standardize the accounting rou- 
tines within each house. This, the 
Council feels, is necessary because 
there is now a great disparity 
among the various bookkeeping 
systems, with five of the fraterni- 
ties using a similar system and the 
others using their own individual 

The adviser would also study 
possibilities of cooperative pur- 
chasing; food savings resulting 
from the use of central purcliasing 
through the Baxter Hall commis- 
sary have been appreciable.

Treasurers' Plan 
Draws Comments 

By Stu Davis 

The proposal of a Campus Busi- 
ness Management system drew dif- 
fering comments from various peo- 

Jack Foster, retiring treasurer of 
Alpha Delta Phi, is in favor of the 
proposed program. He said, "At 
present many houses don't need 
this: some treasurers are fully ca- 
pable, and on the whole the job is 
done well. However, because ot 
yearly changes in office, the pro- 
posed system would protect the 
houses, especially those with weak 
alumni relations." Furthermore, he 
emphasized that: "It would not 
mean the loss of independence for 
each individual treasurer, but ra- 
ther would guarantee him older 

Charles Foehl, college treasurer, 
spoke for the administration. He 
stated. "My feeling is that it would 
be a step forward to follow in Am- 
lierst's footsteps. However, it's up 
to the fraternity members and a- 
lumni to institute it. The admin- 
istration will be helpful in any 
way they can." 
Out-going Secretary-Treasurer of 
the Treasurers' Council Faye Vin- 
cent said, "I'm all for cooperative 
buying, but I think it can be done 
under a student action. I'm not at 
all for removing the autonomy of 
individual treasurers.

Basketball and hockey contests 
against Amherst and square danc- 
ing to Emil Begiebing's music and 
Pappy Moon's calling will high- 
light this winter's Purple Key 
Weekend, which is scheduled for 
March 7. 

The square dance will be held 
in Baxter Hall immediately fol- 
lowing the basketball game Satur- 
day evening. The Hound will also 
be present that evening with mu- 
sic to suit those of more "sophis- 
ticated" taste. 

There is some question as to 
whether the varsity basketball 
game will be held since the Eph- 
men may be invited to the NCAA 
tournament which begins that 
same day. If this happens the 
square dance will start earlier. 

Copeland Stresses 
Personal Contact 

Williams Director of Admissions 
Frederick Copeland stressed the 
importance of individual, rather 
than official, admission aid by un- 
dergraduates in a recent RECORD 

He stated that an organization 
sucli as the College Council Com- 
mittee on Admissions cannot send 
delegates to secondary schools as 
representatives of the Admissions 
Department, since secondary 
school guidance directors could not 
be expected to handle undergrad- 
uates as well as alumni and ad- 
missions men. Undergraduate at- 
tempts would only result in poor 
public relations for the college. 
This is particularly important, 
Copeland stated, since "admissions 
is 50 per cent public relations." 

Copeland, however, is sure that 
undergraduates speaking on an in- 
formal basis with prospective stu- 
dents are "our best salesmen." He 
pointed to two instances of per- 
sonal student work which have in 
the past been quite successful. 

Deerfield Alumni 

One such instance is the annual 
trip to Deerfield made by Wil- 
liams men who are Deerfield alum- 
ni. Each gives an informal talk 
on some aspect of college life with 
tlie emphasis on presenting a true 
insight into college life. 

Also significant has been the 
work done in the Boston area. 
Each year Williams men from the 
Boston area hold a banquet for 
high school and prep school stu- 
dents of high caliber. Working 
with alumni, they endeavor to pre- 
sent a well-rounded picture of 
Williams life.

This is the season when lumuToiis candidates 
foi- admission take a lon^ weekend ;iiid come to 
Williamstown to see the school anil find out 
whether or not it is really all that thev ha\e heard 
of it. 

Last weekend was the l)eu;inninf^ of a seasonal 
inflii,\— bnt visitors eoine here year-roimd to see 
Williams, in an iiiter\iew this week, I" red Cope- 
land of the admissions department outlined one 
of his office's main finietions— that of public re- 
lations. Copeland, Pete Pelham and Charlie 
Schwei^haiiser have undertaken the task of 
meeting, talking with and auswerinfi; the ques- 
tions of all the ]:)rospccti\'e freshmen who come 
here. To some, they must gentlv im])art the news 
that they will not get into Williams. They must 
do this in such a way as to make the candidate 
realize that he has been seriously considered and 
to give him a fa\()iable impression of even the 
school which turned him down. This is not easy, 
but Admissions has had considerable success 
with it. 

The Purple Key Society bases much of its com- 
petition svstein on the program of assigning 
sophomores who are interested in being appoint- 
ed to the Key to conduct "sub-freshmen" and 
their relatives about the campus. The sopho- 
more guides are responsible for introducing the 
candidates to other students, narrating in an in- 
teresting manner the sights of the campus and 
for the entertainment of the visitors in general. 
The majoritv of us, who are neither admissions 
officers nor Purjile Key compets, should also 
realize our resj^onsibility in this matter, 
hi the following month or so, everyone will have 
an o|5|)ortunitv to meet someone touring the cam- 
pus. Talk with him; answer any c|uestions he may 
raise; try to give him the benefit of your exper- 
ience at Williams. Although it may take a few 
minutes more, it is so much more rewarding to 
be heliiful to visitors than to be icily distant, re- 
veling in the superiority of one, two, or three 



The new administration of the Houseparty Com- 
mittee will circulate a ((uestionnaire soon to find 
out what the students think of houseparties. 
After every big weekend, one can hear criti- 
cisms from every side. As you fill out your (]ues- 
tionnaire, remember what you had to say about 
houseparties in the past— and write it down. Use 
this opportiHiity to do what you as a student 
can to make houseparties more fun. 
The questionnaire indicates that the committee 
is anxious to consider new ideas, new directions 
for the planned events of Williams weekends. 
May they not be bound by precedent in consid- 
ering changes— recent weekends have not set a 
very good example for the future. 



As Williams Is As Merchandise 

Day after dav, the tension mounts. First come 
the mimeographed letters, neat, dollars-and-eents 
in loyal purple. Then those smiling men of firm 
grip and bulging pocket: Mr. John Doe, Per- 
sonnel Manag;er of . . . Nerves fray; behind clos- 
ed doors, talk is not of women and not just bull, 
but fervent soul-searching in terms of— salarv, 
training and the room up top. We graduate, 
absently tuck sheepskin in pocket and head for 
the Home Office. 

What has ha])peiied? We ha\e become sen- 
iors; a whirlpool has 0|5ened, funneling to that 
Mecca, the Placement Ikneau, and to its High 
Priest, Mr. Nhniton Co|5elaiid. 

Not for a moment do 1 intend to slander 
Mr. Copeland or his notably efficient charges. 
He is doing a .superb job. It is far from over- 
statement to say that his organization is the best 
run on the Williams campus. 

(>()peland has a great record. He has not 
only succeeded in mani|5ulating an intricate sys- 
tem of interviewing with flawless efficiency 
and excellent placement results; he has jiro- 
nioted a Career Weekend that is undeniablv the 
most-|)ublicized and best-attended non-social, 
non-athletic event of the Williams calendar. 

I will be the last to criticize a job well done 
but among the first to note a flaw . . . when Ca- 
reer Weekend assumes such imchallenged |iro- 
minence, something is definitely irroiig. 

Williams College is not a finishing school for 
junior executives. It is an educational institution. 
Perhaps it has produced great businessmen— it 
also likes to claim success in other fields. Wil- 
liams College ]5urports to be a jilace where jieo- 
ple think as well as learn the tricks of slick con- 

Perhaps Williams as a college might do well 
to take example from Williams as a business su|5- 
ermarket— to take notice that to sell your wares 
i/ou'vc got to advertise. 

We have more to show off than iiromise of 
financial aptitude, and it's about time we let the 
world and oiuselves know about it. 

Moral: All the noise from the Old I'aculty 
Club is drowning out the (|uiet affirmations of 
academic excellence uttered at Hopkins Hall. 

Suggested solutions: 

Give more publicity to the academic pro- 
gram and notable academic achievements. 

Publicize academic and creative endeavor 
within the student body: a sound, high tonixl 
publication would help. 

Phil/ Copeltind's ^ainc— have a weekend 
combining concerts, lectures, readings, theatre, 
exhibitions and whatever to show Williams it 
can do something as an educational institution 
as well as a marketing agent for young graduates.

Look Out Behind You . . . ! 

That's not a warning, men, it's just to tell you about something great 
that is LITERALLY behind you: a liquor store called ALLSOP'S at 
1 34 Cole Avenue, the street that goes down to the railroad station. 

ALLSOP'S is not just an ordinary package store. It is the oldest and 
largest in town with the biggest selection of liquor, beer, ale, wine 
etc. in the area. The reason you haven't heard about it is simply that 
we never told you we were here. Very simple-but not very profitable 
We have a new management now and we're going to let you know 
about us-through your paper, the Record. 

We keep kegs-as well as coses- of cold beer in our cooler and deli- 
ver them right to your door. In fact we'll deliver anything we have if 
you just call us at 404 anytime between 8 A. M. and 10 P, M.

On Cantos 


(By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boytt 'Vind, 
"Barefoot Boy with Cheek.'') 


It has been alleged that coeds ro to college for the sole purposa 
of finding husbands. This is, of course, an iiifainoiis caimnl, and 
I give fair warning that, small and spongy as I lun, anybody 
who says such a dastardly thing when I am anmnd had better 
be prepared for a sound thrashing ! 

Girls go to college for precisely the .same reasons as men do: 
to broaden their liorizons, to lengthen tlieir vistas, to dritik at 
the fount of wisdom. Hut if, liy |)urc chiince, while a girl is 
engaged in these nieritorioiis pursuits, a likely looking luishiind 
should pop into view, why, wliiit's wrong with that? Mli? 
What's wrong with that? 

The question now, wliiit should n girl look for in a 
husband? A great deal has been written on this siil)ject. Scjino 
say character is most iniport.'nit, some say background, some 
Bay appearance, some say education. All are wrong. 

The most important thing— burnone— ina husband is health. 
Thougli he be handsome as Apollo and rich as Croesus, what 
good is he if he just lies around all day accumulating bedsores? 


'/^asi /w^zk/^/^^' « te/^y 5' kM 

The very first thing to do upon meeting a man is to make 
sure ho is sound of wind iuid limb. Hefore he has a chance to 
iweet-talk you, slap a thermometer in his mouth, roll back his 
eyelids, yank out his tongue, rap his patella, palpate his thorax, 
ask him to straighten out a horseshoe with his teeth. If he 
fails these simple tests, phone for an ambulance and go on to 
the next prospect. 

If, however, he turns out to he physically fit, proceed to the 
second most important requirement in a husband. I refer to 
a sense of humor. 

A man who can't take a joke is a man to be avoided. There 
are several simple tests to find out whether your prospect can 
take a joke or not. You can, for example, slash his tires. Or burn 
his "Mad" comics. Or steal his switchblade. Or turn loose his 
pet raccoon. Or shave his head. 

After each of these good-natured pranks, laugh gaily and 
shout "April Fool!" If he replies, "Hut this is February nine- 
teenth," or something equally churlish, cross him off your list 
and give thanks you found out in time. 

But if he laughs silverly and calls you "Little minx I" put him 
to the next test. Find out whether he is kindly. 

The quickest way to ascertain his kindliness is, of course, to 
look at the cigarette he smokes. Is it mild? Is it clement? Is it 
humane? Does it minister tenderly to the psyche? Does it 
coddle the synapses? Is it a good companion? Is it genial? Is it 
bright and friendly and full of dulcet pleasure from cockcrow 
till the heart of darkness? 

Is it, in short, Philip Morris? 

If Philip Morris it be, then clasp the man to your bosom with 
hoops of steel, for you may be sure that he is kindly as a sum- 
mer breeze, kindly as a mother's kiss, kindly to his very marrow. 

And now, having found a mim who is kindly and healthy and 
blessed with a sense of humor, the only thing that remains is to 
make sure he will always earn a handsome living. That, fortu- 
nately, is easy. Just enroll him in engineering. ® ,»8b, m.. shuim..

Widmer, Wirth See Busy Semester 
For Sophomore, Freshman Comicils 

With the emphasis on initiative, 
the Freshman and Sophomore 
Councils enter their second semes- 

Freshman plans include a 
Prosh-Soph field day. a Frosh 
dance on Purple Key weekend, and 
a meeting between the Freshman 
Councils of Amherst, Wesleyan, 
and Williams on February 22, at 
Amherst. The Council also hopes 
that the Freshman class will be 
able to sponsor the coming Spring 
Houseparties. Another measure it 
i.s discussing concerns the install- 
ment of pay washing machines in 
the basements of Williams and 
Sage Halls. 

The hi-fi record player, donated 
to the Student Union in memory 
of Thomas Mares '60, by his par- 
ents and friends, has been repair- 
ed. The cartridge for the hi-fi 
had previously been stolen. In an 

all-class meeting on February 26, 
president Wirth and the Council 
will fully outline their plans for 
this semester. 

The Sophomore Council likewise 
has its own program for the last 
half of the year. Eric Widmer, 
newly elected president, comments, 
"The Sophomore Council is, in a 
sense, a subsidiary body of the 
College Council, and at the same 
Lime bastion of sophomore class 
interest. The class officers are ex- 
pected to lead, while the Council 
is expected to represent. The 
course of action which we will 
take this spring will depend largely 
upon the initiative of the council 
members." Asked if the Council 
had anything; specific in mind, 
Eric replied that a possible mixer 
witii Colby Jr. was in the offing 
plus plans for the annual frosh- 
soph field day.

Town Move 
Widen Spring St.; 
Meeting Monday 

Monday, Feb. 23, the Town 
Council of Williamstown will hold 
a meeting to decide whether or 
not to widen Spring Street. 

The actual widening of the street 
will entail the narrowing of the 
sidewalks. There will be no moving 
of the buildings which line Spring 
Street. New sidewalks and curbs 
will be constructed as part of the 
project which will cost approxi- 
mately $50,000. 

Prominent Issue 
This construction has been a very 
prominent issue for many years. 
All that i.s required now is for the 
Town Council to decide whether it 
is in the best interests of the peo- 
ple to widen tlie street. 

The main impediment to the 
project is the fact that quite a 
sizable portion of the sidewalk on 
the west side of the street is own- 
ed by private citizens. Thus, be- 
fore the construction could begin, 
waivers must be obtained from 
these people giving the town the 
right to narrow the sidewalks. 
Spring Street 

Most of the merchants feel that 
the widening is the best attempt 
to this date to remedy the traffic 
problem which one encounters on 
the street.

Alter a succosslul three day run of Suiuiner & Smoke, the 
Adams .Memorial Theatre looks forward to a semester of f^reat 
aetivity. Sandy Saunders '60, new President of Cap and Bell.s, ha.s 
startecl a prof^rani of orj^anization expansion. Giles Wayfair has 
struck upon a refreshing idea in his newest con(|uest, C. B. Sliuw's

Baxter Hall Location 
Of New Trophy Case 

Thirteen College trophies are be- 
ing moved from the foyer of the 
Lasell gym to a new trophy case in 
Baxter Hall. The College and the 
Purple Key Society are sharing 
equally in the cost of the new dis- 
play case. 

According to Purple Key presi- 
dent Sandy Smith, the purpose of 
the move is to give trophies of cur- 
rent interest a more prominent 
place wliere they can be seen by 
students, alumni and visitors. In 
addition, the trophy cases in the 
Lasell gym foyer are quite crowded 
witli trophies of past years. 

The most prominent trophy in 
the new display will be the Purple 
Key Trophy for the outstanding 
senior athlete in all sports. This 
trophy and the other individual 
ones are awarded annually at the 
Purple Key's Block 'W' banquet, 
to be held this year on May 17. 

Team trophies in the new case 
include those for the National 
squash championship and the New 
England lacrosse championship of 
last year and for the Springfield 
basketball tournament of this year.

Peter Culman '59, and Tony Dist-

ing respectively. 

Saunders and Expansion 

Saunders, backed by Geof Swift 
'60, and Dave Wright '60, and a 
board of four men, has pledged 
himself to the expansion of Cap 
and Bells. He and the society will 
endeavor to stimulate greater pub- 
lic interest in the AMT. His great 
optimism stems from the member- 
ship of thirty-five extremely ac- 
tive freshmen, a number dispro- 
portionate to that representing the 
three upper classes. 

Presently in the works are the 
musical revue and a concert read- 
ing later in the semester. Saunders 
has scheduled the date for select- 
ing next year's production themes 
sometime in the late Spring. 


"Candida," now in its early re- 
hearsal stage, will stick "as near 
as possible" to the author's ori- 
ginal conception, according to 
Playfair. The unique quality of the 
play lies in the casting of its four 
players. Headed by Archie Palmer 
'62, and Mrs. H. Lee Hirsche, all 
cast members are new to AMT 
productions. Two of the four are 

Playfair indicated that a con- 
cert reading will be staged later in 
the year by those who didn't make 
the limited cast of "Candida." 

Intimate Revue 

"A small cast yields a more con- 
trollable, a more intimate produc- 
tion; a loose, disjointed structure 
provides for utilization of more 
and better ideas; a script written 
after cast selection promises the 
greater realization of the chosen 
talent." Taken together, the three 
spell potential SUCCESS for the 
Culman-Distler intimate revue.

Middlebury Wins 
Eastern Ski Title 

By Bill Anderson 

Middlebury College, winner of 
the Dartmouth and Williams win- 
ter carnivals, seized the Eastern 
Intercollegiate ski championship 
this weekend. 

Despite their fifth place show- 
ing in the slalom, the Panthers 
won three of six events to break 
Dartmouth's 10-year reign, taking 
579.86 points to the Indians' 
573.51. Williams, plagued by their 
usual weakness in the jump, plac- 
ed seventh in the field of nine, 
scoring 514.66 points.

Cars picked up and delivered 

day's downhill race, as Panther 
Jim Southard skimmed down the 
course in a record time of 1:14.2. 
Jeff Fisher's time of 1:19.7 placed 
him 15th, while Phillips, Rozen- 
daal, and Coleman failed to place 
above the 20th position. In the sla- 
lom, won by Orcutt of St. Law- 
rence, Fisher timed sixth with 
1:58.8. The Ephmen tied for fifth 
with Middlebury, as a fall by 
Southard on his second run seri- 
ously affected the Middlebury 

The Panthers again dominated 
the cross-country, as Pete Liahden- 
para crossed first in 59 minutes 51 
sec. followed by teammate Herb 
Thomas and New Hampshire's Al 
Lane. Jeff Fisher crossed 12th in 
69 minutes 11 seconds. 

Jumping was held Saturday af- 
ternoon in a blinding snow squall 
which cut both the visibility and 
the jumping distances. Suits of 
St. Lawrence won the event, 
jumping 135 feet. The Ephmen 
did very poorly, as Tom Phillips 
placed 25th and Jan Rozendaal 

The jumps hurt Williams again 
in the tally for the Nordic Com- 
bined. In both events the Ephs 
scored eight, detracting from an 
otlierwise creditable job, especially 
on the part of Captain Jeff Fisher. 


Call me Fishmael. Some months ago— don't trouble 
yourself about how many— I signed on as a deck 
hand aboard the charter boat Peapod, a most mel- 
ancholy craft sailing out of Bay Shore, Long Island. 

There are certain queer times in this patchwork quilt 
we call life when a man discerns the approach of 
some calamitous event; such a time came to me of 
a hot Saturday morning, as we were icing the 
Schaefer beer for the day's fishing ahead. My un- 
easiness centered about Captain Abah, asleep in his 
cabin since Thursday night— he swore he had con- 
tracted sleeping sickness in a battle with Mopy Dick, 
the Lazy Whale, and I found myself beset by the 
fear Abah would attempt vengeance. 

The natural ebullience of our fishing party, gentle- 
men from the city of the Mahatteos, mounted even 
higher ,when they espied the Schaefer all agleam in 
ice and sunlight. "Ah!" cried one, "it is evident you 
know what is heard in the best of circles !" "Aye, sir," 
said Moonbuck, our first mate, " 'Schaefer all 
around!' " 

Suddenly a sleepy-eyed Cap- 
tain Abah was in our midst. 
"Blood and thunder," he 
yawned, "today I wreak my 
hate upon Mopy Dick. Full 
speed ahead for the open 

Only Moonbuck made bold 

to ease the man. "Drink this Schaefer, my captain, 
and think on the wi.sdom of your move. Savor the 
smooth round taste — never sharp, never flat." 

"I thirst only for revenge," he mumbled drowsily, 
but he took the proffered beer and stumbled wearily 
to his cabin. Perhaps in his dreams he vanquished 
Mopy Dick or was vanquished by him. I never 
knew, but I think it all had some great, allegorical 
meaning. The Peapod and Abah and Mopy Dick 
and the Schaefer were symbolic of something surely— 
something as mysterious and enduring as the rise 
and fall of the sea.

The brilliant net-minding of

Colgate Defeats Ephs 
In Varsity Wrestling 

By Wally Matt 

The varsity wrestling team suf- 
fered its first loss of the season at 
the hands of a strong Colgate team 
in Hamilton, N. Y. Saturday. It 
was the first time that Colgate has 
beaten Williams in wrestling. 

Losing by a lopsided 25-5 score, 
the team looked worse than it has 
all .season. Captain Kuhrt Wiene- 
kii was the only winner for the 
Ephs. Wieneke scored two take- 
downs and an escape in defeating 
hi;, 137-pound opponent, 6-0. 

Heavyweight Bob Hatcher, who 
wrestled to a 1-1 draw with Col- 
gate's Hancock, was the only other 
Williams man to score. 

One of the few Williams men to 
look good, even though he lost 
his match, was Bill Penny. 
ling at 157 against Colgate's cocky 
showman Dave Dailey, Penny was 
outclassed by hi.s stronger and 
more experienced opponent, but 
still fought hard for nine minutes.

A Campus-to-Career Case History 

Bill Gihhs discusses prorediire jor a riiloier to (lirccl ilislancc dialing with one oj his men. 

He's getting the advancement he looked for 
...and right in his own home state 

William C. Gibbs graduated from Vir- 
ginia Polytechnic Institute in 195() with 
a U.S. degree in business administration. 
He joined The Chesapeake & Potomac 
Telephone Conii)any of Virginia because, 
"I was familiar with the company and 
ronfulent that it ofTored the best possi- 
bilities for advancement. And 1 wanted 
to stay in my home state." 

Today, after two and one-half years 
with the telephone coin|)any, Bill super- 
vises eight men. His group is responsible 
for mahitainiiig outside telephone facili- 
ties ranging from telephone jjoles and 
wires to mountaintop microwave relay 
lowers. These facilities are spread over 
some 2.500 square miles. 

"I'm really getting basic supervisory 
experience on this job," Bill says. "My 

assignments during training and my 
earlier jobs gave me a solid feel of tele- 
])hone company operations. But 1 find 
the greatest challenge and satisfaction 
come from working through others." 

Some of the interesting training assign- 
ments Bill refers to involved arranging 
for TV and mobile radio pick-up for the 
presidential inauguration, the Armed 
Forces day show at Quanlico and other 
events of national interest. 

"So far I've gotten just what I was 
looking for in a telephone career," Bill 
says. "The training and experience I've 
received have been tops. And with the 
comi)any constantly growing to meet 
service demands, it looks to me like there 
will he plenty of opportunity to keep 
moving ahead in the business." 

Bill Gibbs found the opi>f>rlniiity he was looking for 
with a Bell Telephone Company ... in the slate of 
his choice. You may, too. Talk with the Bell inter-

Boston Eliminates Williams From Amateurs; 
Tobin, Buck Overcome In Close Matches 

A strong, cxpcrienci'd Bo.ston conliiij^cMit eliminated the var- 
sity s(|iiash team from the National Amateius, 5-0 Saturday. 

PuciiiK Larry Sears, No. 1 man at llai\aid last year, durinjf 

which time he was ranked first 
intercoUeyiately, Greg Tobin led 
the match going into the fourth 
game on the strength of 15-13 and 
15-8 wins. Sears faced the situa- 
tion, however, and tied the game 
at 13 all before winning strongly 
18-14 and taking the finale, 15-8. 
Buck Strong 
AILcr Ernie Flei.shman went 
down in three games to another 
former Harvard star, Clyde Buck 
won his opener, 17-15, but was 
overtaken and finally edged in the 
fifth game, 15-13. To clinch the 
match the well-schooled Bean- 
towners whipped Chris Schaefer in 
three games by scores of 15-10 in 
each and downed "Wheels" Mil- 
ler by the same margin. 

The Boston team went on to 
dump the Jester's Club of London 
before succumbing to Philadel- 
phia, 4-1, in the semi-finals. The 
Ephmen were originally scheduled 
to play the Jesters, but the Jesters 
were delayed by a snowstorm. The 
schedule was accordingly changed 
and Williams played Boston. Of 
the three college teams entered in 
the tournament, only Yale is left. 

1 - Tobin— 1.— Sears, 2-3 

2 - Fleishman — 1. — Parker, 0-3 

3 - Buck— 1.— Bodoroff, 2-3 

4 - Schaefer — 1.— Hammett, 0-3 

5 - Miller— 1.— Olmsted, 0-3 

Middlebmy Beats 
Eph Skaters 9-2 

The Mlddlebury hockey team, 
scoring twice in the first 85 sec- 
onds of the game, went on to de- 
feat Williams 9-2 at Mlddlebury 
on Friday. Mike Karin and Phil 
Latreille each collected hat tricks 
for the Panthers in a game played 
before a Winter Carnival crowd. 

All but one of the eleven goals 
in the game came in the first two 
periods, with the home team scor- 
ing three in the first and five more 
in the second. Nick Ohly blinked 
the light in the first period and 
Mike Grant converted a Jim Fish- 
er pass into a goal at 13:05 of the 
second period to account for Wil- 
liams' scoring. Al Lapey made 38 
saves in the goal for the visitors. 
Karin, Latreille Shine 

Karin scored two of his goals at 
the very beginning of the game to 
push Mlddlebury into the lead. He 
made his third at 1:55 of the sec- 
ond session. Latreille scored once 
in the initial period and added two 
more within 3 seconds of each 
other at the close of the second. 

The twin Friberger brothers. 
Bob and Jerry, combined for two 
goals for the victors early in the 
second period. Jerry passed to 
Bobby for both tallies. 

Robinson, a member of the third 
line, scored the final goal for the 
Panthers at 13:55 of the final 
stanza. Dave Knott, the left wing 
on the first line with Karin and 
Latreille collected 3 assists in the 
game. The entire first line amass- 
ed 16 scoring points against the 
Ephs, who seemed to be taking too 
much time in shooting.

Struggle To 3-3 Tie 

Although preserving their unde- 
feated record, the Freshman Hock-

ed by Pete Marlowe scored the 
first goal at 14:32 of the opening

of the second period the Ephmen

Under Ownership Of Charles Smith 

"AUsop's, Inc. has been here, in 
one form or another, since 1890, 
but few people knew that it exist- 
ed," said Charles H. Smith, new 
owner of the Cole Avenue package 
store. He explained that before he 
bought it, it had been a variety 
store, "selling everything from 
penny candy to corn plasters." 

Allsop's still has the candy for 
its under-age customers, but spir- 
its have replaced the corn plasters. 
Seated in the small back room of 
his store, on a "coffee table" he 
had just made out of a liquor case. 
Smith told of his travel.s as a rep- 
resentative for Genoval Foods. 
Smith's job took him and his wife 
throughout the Middle and Far 
East, and Europe. 

In the last 18 months they have 
girdled the globe twice. "That's 
why we're here", said Smith, "we 
got sick of traveling," Smith and

Treasurers^ Council . . 

The most pressing problem the 
manager would solve, according to 
Phillips, is the need for a monthly 
audit of each fraternity's accounts. 
A single person, says the report, 
could bring continuity to the whole 
accounting system. The adviser 
would advise each house with re- 
spect to collections and levies in 
order to keep individual member 
costs down. 

Lastly the residential manager 
would be on campus to issue infor- 
mation such as on fire prevention 
and to do any other research de- 
sired by the fraternities.

ute before. Roe took the puck, 
skated behind the goal and then 
flicked it in as he came in front 
of the net. Taft narrowed the lead 
to 2-1 on an unassisted goal by 
Jean Arrouet at 8:30. Remaining 
on the offensive, Taft tied the 
score at 13:02 on a goal by Toby 
Hubbard with Spike Hassler get- 
ting an assist. 

With both goalies, Dunham of 
Taft and Ham Brown of 'Williams, 
making nice saves the first two- 
thirds of the third period was 
scoreless. Then Williams at 10:00 
took the lead as Marlowe assisted 
by Frank Ward scored. 

With only a minute and thirty 
seconds remaining in the game 
Taft removed their goalie. With 
six forwards pressing the attack 
Taft was able to keep the puck 
near the Williams goal until with 
only eighteen seconds remaining 
Chris Cluett assisted by Dick du- 
Pont scored the tying goal.

way of life". Both of them like 
this area because of its cultural op- 

The Smith's have purchased an 
old farm, on "what is known to the 
natives as Terry Woods Road". 
"It will never be a farm again," 
says cosmopolitan Smith. While 
remodeling the old farmhouse, he 
discovered 1853 newspapers in 
some of the walls. The "natives" 
were not surprised, as the walls 
had been in "the new part of the

Smith is also having his store 
redecorated, including a special 
room devoted exclusively to fine 
wines. For beer lovers. Smith is 
installing "the largest cooler in 
the Berlcshires", with electric, glass 
doors. He also offers a delivery 
service for homebodies. 

One thing Smith noted in his 
travels was the omnipresence of 
Williams men. In Manila, where 
he last made his home, he was 
familiar with the six man Williams

Young Cal Will Open 
Sporting Goods Store 

Spring Street will be partially 
face-lifted by the addition of a 
sporting goods store. 

Cal King Jr. is going to handle 
the new business, to be located 
next to the Walden Theater in the 
building formerly occupied by 
Marge's Gift Shop. Mrs. Margery 
Harris, the owner of the gift and 
art shop which has served the 
Spring Street lady shoppers for 
the past five years, will now be- 
come the proprietress of a new 

King commented when asked a- 
bout the proposed store, "It has 
been my ambition to open such a 
store since I got out of the army, 
but this is the first opportunity I 
have received to do this." 

Cal's Sporting Goods 

The new store, to be called 
"Cal's Sporting Goods," will be 
limited, as the name implies, to 
all types of equipment for every 
sport and season, including a 
variety of goods from moose calls 
to lacrosse sticks. About his new 
store Cal says, "I don't expect to 
get rich but I do think the idea 
will go over, and I know that I 
will enjoy running it.

Griswold's Talk Deals 
With Wehern's Music 

Thomas Griswold of the Wil- 
liams Department of Music spoke 
on "Anton Webern and the Music 
of the Future" in a faculty lecture 

According to Griswold, Webern, 
"one of the most hypermodern of 
the modern composers, is one of 
the most important and least 
known of them." His music is very 
difficult to understand, Griswold 
continued, because of its unusual, 
experimental tone qualities, and 
the fact that it is based on a 12- 
tone scale, rather than on the con- 
ventional 8-tone scale. 

As a part of his lecture, Griswold 
IJlayed a Webern composition on 
the piano and from that described 
Webern 's technique and formulat- 
ed a guide for listening to his mu-

Purpose, Areas For Decisive Action 
Discussed At First S. C. Meeting 


"direct access to student opinion" 

New Social Council president 
Tom White opened the group's 
first meeting Tuesday night with 
a statement of purpose. He agreed 
in substance with Dean Brooks' 
previous analysis, that "the posi- 
tion of the SC in the college com- 
munity is a representative one; 
but it can have a decisive function 
with respect to the fraternities as 

White sees the Council's repre- 
sentative function as the "pro- 
motion of ideas of an exploratory 
nature and ... the provision of a 

direct access to student opinion." 
Specific areas for decisive action 
might be in "houseparty policy, 
central buying, and rushing poli-

Haystack Drive 
Exceeds $1000 

Bob Stegeman, chairman of the 
1959 Haystack Scholarship Fund, 
announced Wednesday that the 
drive had netted a total of 

The fraternities and non-affili- 
ates contributed $813.86, while the 
freshmen donated $220. 

Stegeman commented on the 
drive, stating he was "satisfied 
with the results, happier than I 
was last week." He went on to 
say, "The drive on the whole was 
successful. Some parts of the cam- 
pus were strong, other parts were 

Goal Not Set 

The drive, sponsored by the 
Williams College Chapel, had no 
set goal, but $1.50 was asked of 
each student. A balance of $1100 
is necessary to provide scholarships 
for two students. 

The Haystack scholarship covers 
room and college fees, plus an al- 
lowance of $100 for books and per- 
sonal expenses. The college remits 
tuition, and the student's frater- 
nity waives the board charge. The 
scholarship is renewed each year 
of the student's college career, 
which gives it an advantage over 
„he one-year Bowdoin Plan. 

Byers '61 Gets Top GUL Post; 
Out-going White, Morss Design

John C. Byers '6T "f VVestporP Conn, was ap])()inted editor of 
the CuUchnensian yearbook today. Bveis, Eliot Morss '60, and 
Tom White '60, retiriiiij; editors, will meet soon to ap|)()int a nian- 
aginif editor and business manager under the terms of the new Gul 
organizational apeement adopted this week. 

The new editor expressed a 
strong desire to reorganize the 
yearbook with the help of the edi- 
torial board "to make the Gul a 
really active campus organization." 
Byers is secretary of Psi Upsilon, 
a member of Cap and Bells dra-

more class activities. 

New Agreement 


Treasurers' Council Elects Pilgrim; 
Debates House Financial Practices 

|im Pilgrim '60. was elected president, and Harvey Bricklcy, 
secretary-treasurer of the Treasurer's Council Wednesday nii;;ht. 
The meeting of the old and new hou,se treasurers also discussed 
the report by outgoing Council ' 
president, John Phillips, and Jack 
Foster, which recommends a cen- 
tralization of fraternity financial 
matters under a resident manager. 

Phillips stressed to the Council 
that the essential point of the pro- 
posed system would be to provide 
continuity in fraternity financial 
affairs, eliminating the need for 
a treasurer to learn his job entire- 
ly by experience, which now causes 
a loss of time and efficiency. 

"Whether or not the proposal is 
accepted," Phillips warned, "some 
improvement in fraternity finan- 
cial practices must be brought a- 
bout if we are to overcome the risk 
of financial inefficiency." 

Auditor or Resident Manager 

Some members of the council 
questioned certain recommenda- 
tions of the report. Paul Solomon 
favored an outside auditor rather 
than a resident manager. Pilgrim's 
feelings were that "we can't take 
everything in the report and say 
that it is good, but there are many 
things constructive in it." 

The new Council unanimously 
accepted the report for study and 
voted to invite the director of a 
similar program at Amherst to 
speak to the Council. 

Smith, Eph Choruses

Alumni Consider 
Fire Safety Plan 

The Graduate Committee of 
Williams College Social Units met 
at the Williams Club in New York 
on February 19 for a full discuss- 
ion of fraternity fire safety plans 
and for further consideration of a 
program to audit undergraduate 
bookkeeping records on a regular 

Fire Inspector 

Since the DKE fire In January 
all of the houses have been inspec- 
ted by the State Fire Inspector, 
who has written each group advis- 
ing what corrections are necessary 
for maximum fire prevention. As 
the cost for alterations and addi- 
tions will be substantial, the Indi- 
vidual fraternity alumni corpora- 
tions plan to take advantage of 
college treasurer Charles Poehl's 
offer to act as general agent on 
various items in order to effect 
savings by cooperative buying. 

After the committee heard de- 
tailed information on the DKE 
fire, they discussed various pre- 
ventive and safety mechanisms. 
Periodic compulsory fire drills 
would constantly remind the stu- 
dents of possible disaster. 

Regular auditing of house rec- 
ords has been a subject of dis- 
cussion by the committee since 
Campus Business Management was 
abandoned. Seven of the alumni 
corporations have regular audit- 
ing procedures, and it was decided 
that the Committee would make 
arrangements to obtain competent 
assistants to those fraternities 
wishing to avail themselves of such 
services. This would facilitate the 
recent plan of the CC to expand 
its activities by working with the 
Ti-easurers' Council in unifying 
fraternity bookkeeping practices. 
The committee is composed of 
the alumni president of each so- 
cial unit or his representative. 

The organizational plan set up 
by Morss and White for the new 
"Gul" is a consequence largely of 
the separation of business and edi- 
torial staffs under the student 
subsidization plan approved this 
fall. The agreement will leave the 
editor-in-chief responsible for all 
phases of yearbook activity with 
the managing editor and business 
manager at the head of the edi- 
torial and business staffs. 

Because the College Council Tax 
supports the "Gul" to the tune of 
$6,000 yearly. White presented the 
agreement to Council members at 
the Monday CC meeting. He point- 
ed out that during the past year, 
the business board under Stephen 
Bevan '60, manager, operated as 
a distinct organization responsible 
to the Council Committee on Fi- 
nance. Morss and White feel this 
lack of communication is detri- 
mental to the organization. 

CCF Relations 

The outgoing editors recom- 
mended that the "Gul" prepare a 
written monthly report of progress 
to the Finance Committee. The 
CC in referring this recommenda- 
tion to Finance, expressed the wish 
not to interfere with the internal 
workings of any of the organiza- 
tions dependent upon it for funds. 
Dean Robert R. R. Brooks pointed 
out that .should any future deficit 
occur in the "Gul" budget, it 
could be subject to a "temporary 
receivership" of the CCP. White 
anticipated no deficit this year. 

Ex-Treasurer Makes 
Reparations To DKE 

Full restitution of $886 embez- 
zeled from Delta Kappa Epsilon 
during 1958 was made by former 
house treasurer John F. Struthers, 
Jr., Saturday in District Court. 

Struthers entered a technical 
plea of not guilty of the crime of 
embezzeling funds from the fra- 
ternity made possible by the fact 
that the money had been restored 
at the time of the hearing before 
Judge Samuel E. Levlne. This 
means that the crime will not be 
placed on the criminal record. 


The hearing was "continued" 
until June 18, 1960 so that Stru- 
thers is effectively on probation 
although he stands unconvicted. 
He continues on $500 bail. 

Struthers indicated to the judge 
tliat he would like to continue his 
education at Williams. So far the 
discipline committee has taken no 
action .subsequent to its initial de- 
cision of indefinite suspension 
from school.

a good thing 

Having iiothiiij^ i)etti'r to ilo Tlunsday after- 
noon, we wandered into the IJiology Laboratory 
on the .strenj^th of a rumor tiiat a faculty lecture 
was to be f^ivcu. The lecture room was crowd- 
ed with persoimaj^es of all .sorts and discrip- 
tions— representatives from almost every faculty 
dejjartmeut on the eam|5us. On the rostrum was 
Assistant Professor of History Orsille Murphy 
with a sheaf of notes on (Jcorge Washinjfton and 
the French in front of him. VVe settled dowii in 
one of the lOO-odd hard-backed chairs and pre- 
pared to endure what was probably to be a rath- 
er dry dissertation oii a subject for which we had 
little affinity. 

VVe were, at the end of .'30 minutes, surprised to 
find that we had become most interested, if not 
involved, with Georj^e Wasbinifton and the 
French. At the end of the lecture, we jjuUed our- 
selves up in the chair and evaluated what had 
happened. We had been treated not only to a 
learned discussion but to a wcll-])lanned speech. 
Taking a hasty glance about, we noticed again 
the rows of \h. Nfurphy's colleagues, a good 
many of their wives, and even a Cub Scout in 
one of the last rows. 

Here and there in the audience, noticeable for 
their singularity, were a few students, taking re- 
fuge, no doubt, from the sulj-zero temperature 
outside. Walking out of the lab, we decided that 
very possibly we had discovered an untapiied re- 
source of free entertainment— a novelty in this 
day and age. 

We thought of telling our friends about the series. 
It might happen that some of them as a by-pro- 
duct of their di\ertisement might become a lit- 
tle more educated, which would doubtless be a 
Good Thing. —editors 

bridge relations 

On Wednesdays the Williams Bridge Club at- 
tracts a mnnber of enthusiasts to its dui>licate 
tournament in Ba.xter Hall's upperclass lounge. 
Walking through during play, it is heartening to 
see that a large percentage of the players are 
older i^eople not associated with the college. 
Tliese players seem to enjoy their association 
with students of similar interests; at least they 
have respect for ability of student teams. 
This is one of the small, nice ways in which Wil- 
liams becomes really at one with Williamstown. 


Wesleyan game 

Tomorrow night two old rivals will meet again. 
The E|)hnien, with a 13-3 record, will face a 
strong Cardinal team at Middletowu for the 
second time this vear. 

Weslevan, with eight straight wins behind hci' 
and a winning record in the Little Three com- 
petition, is roMi))iug with unusual spirit. Lnthu- 
siasm for their surprise basketball team promises 
to draw a huge Wesleyan contingent to the game. 

But we all know the Williams basketball scpiad; 
we know it can be the winner. ^ Ct anv team 
needs sj^ectator sup]}ort. Sine it's two and one- 
half hours to Middletowu. hut will time sto]5 a 
Williams man, es|)cciallv if joined by a Smith or 
Holyoke companion. 



Passing across our desk last Wednesday along 
with the rest of the journalistic bagatelk-s came 
a short notice from a midwestern tabloid about 
a certain Uniscrsitv of California specialist in 
bone disease who stoutly maintains that adults 
would benefit more from drinking whiskev than 

Accorchng to this savant, milk is a good 
source for calcium and |)i()tein for children. Ad- 
ults, on the other hand, have little need for more 
calcium and inav indeed have too much in their 
system already. "I'd rather these peo|)le drank 
li(|uor than milk," declares the jirofessor. 

Now the whole fact of the matter is that we 
here at Williams arc considered adults. There- 
fore, in hue vvith an old and honored l\ECOHD 
tradition of screaming (jiiietly for much-needed 
reforms in the college, we are initiating a new 
campaign to force the College Council to in- 
augurate a daily ration of toddy for the student 
body. Until a new committee is appointed to cope 
with ways and means to by|5ass this new sug- 
gestion of ours, we will continue to ajiply all 
forms of political pressur(" that come to mind 
upon that august body. 

Meanwhile, anyone interested in further en- 
lightenment from the worthy professor may

Behind by 11 points with four 
minutes to go, the Williams fresh- 
man cagers rallied to gain a 68- 
64 win over Siena Tuesday night. 

Starting forward Jere Behrman 
and substitutes Graddy Johnson 
and Toby Cosgrove were instru- 
mental in the Ephs' last-minute 
surge. Their showing salvaged a 
Williams win despite a generally 
unimpressive showing by the Eph- 

Behrman Outstanding 

Playing his outstanding game of 
the season, Behrman scored 14 
points and rebounded well. Bob 
Mahland was top scorer with 23 
points while Dave Ritchie tallied 

The Eplis will be gunning for 
their tenth victory of the cam- 
paign when they travel to Wesley- 
an tomorrow. 

Thorns Sets Goal 
For Blood Drive 

The annual visit of the Red 
Cross Bloodmoblle will take place 
Monday and Tuesday, March 9 and 
10 at the First Congregational 
Church of Williamstown. 

Between the hours of 10 a.m. 
and 4 p.m. undergraduates will be 
able to give blood. Students under 
18 are not allowed to give and 
those between the ages of 18 and 
21 must have parents' permission. 

Prank R. Thorns has sent out 
cards soliciting parents' permission 
for students in this age bracket. 
He has so far received "a huge 
number of replies." Students who 
wish to give, and need permission 
should contact Thoms to see if it 
has been obtained. 

Thoms set his own goal for the 
drive. "I hope like the devil that 
we can get 300 pints in 2 days," 
he said.

Wesleyan Men 
Die In Accident 

The RECORD prints the follow- 
ing account as an expression of 
.sympathy on the part of the Wil- 
liams undergraduate body. — ed. 
by C. H. Smith 

In the early morning fog that 
covered most of New England last 
Saturday, two Wesleyan students 
were killed and two critically in- 
jured when their car crashed into 
the rear of a parked trailer truck 
two miles south of South London- 
dery, Vt. 

Carl Ahrens, captain-elect of the 
football team, and Ezra Howell 
were killed instantly. Still on the 
critical list is Ross Goodrich, pre- 
sident of the Sigma Nu fraternity 
while Erwin Barnet, president of 
the senior class, has been declared 
out of danger. 

The four students were heading 
north at 5:30 a.m. when the car 
failed to avoid a refueling truck 
parked off the road. Ahrens was 
at the wheel of his station wagon 
travelling to his home in South 
Londondery when the accident oc- 

Services for Ahrens were held 
Tuesday evening. All four men 
were members of Sigma Nu at 

Parents Contribute Over $49,000 
As Fund Drive Hits Record High 

Bij Jolin Franklin 
This year's highly successlul Ahinini Fund Dri\e inchided a 
smaller campaign directed towards the parents of Williams stu- 
dents. Directed bv Ilenrv P. Cole, Sr. of New York City, this 
prograni raised a total of $49,325.26 from 766 parents, a high in 
the campaign's six year history. 

"We are not sure, but we believe 
that this is the largest amount ever 
contributed by parents to an an- 
nual giving program run by a col- 
lege of Williams' size," commented 
Willard Dickerson, Director of The 
Development Office. 

Great Tribute 

Dickerson considers the results 
of this drive to be a "tremendous 
tribute" to the College. "The par- 
ents are our customers, and their 
response to this drive proved that 
they were satisfied customers," he 

Henry P. Cole, Sr. recruited a 
committee of 100 parents who ran 
the drive. It was primarily a letter 
campaign, some sent by Cole, some 
sent by the chairmen in charge of 
each of the 15 regions into which 
the country was divided. In many 
cases these letters were followed up 
phone calls. 

The drive covered the parents of 
eight classes, those of the top three 
undergraduate classes and of the 
five previous graduating classes. 
Dickerson noted that many par- 
ents of freshmen also contributed. 

Williamstown Decides 
To Widen Spring St. 

The people of Williamstown vo- 
ted to widen Spring Street at a 
town meeting, Pebmary 24. 

"This decision is one of great 
importance to the college com- 
munity," said Williamstown man- 
ager, Maynard Austin, "because 
traffic congestion will be elimin- 
ated when the project is comple- 
ted." The sidewalk adjacent to the 
street will be narrowed to ten feet 
and the high step curbs will be 
replaced with conventional ones. 

Reconstruction should be started 
the second week in June, imme- 
diately following graduation, and 
should be finished the first week 
in September. One argument a- 
gainst widening the street was that 
cars would go faster, and the street 
would be more dangerous for the 

Soph Dismissed For 
Honor Code Violation 

A member of the class of 1961 
was expelled from school for vio- 
lating the honor code in a course 
examination. The student-faculty 
discipline committee acted accord- 
ing to the prescriptions of the Ho- 
nor System Constitution which 
says that anyone other than a 
freshman who i,s convicted of 
cheating must be permanently ex- 
pelled from the college. 

In sending their recommenda- 
tion to the Dean, the committee 
stated that they acted to expell the 
undergraduate because there was 
no other course open to them. The 
Dean's office withheld the expel- 
led student's name in order to a- 
void unnecessary ramifications of 
his dismissal from Williams. 

Purple Key Sponsors 
Saturday Square Dance 

"Take your jjartners," will be the cry tomorrow night at 
8:30 when the Purple Key Society will present a square dance as 
the feature attraction of this year's Purple Key Weekend. Bee De- 
Mallie and Ed Bagnido, chairmen of the annual weekend, indi- 
cated this is the Key's initial attempt at holding a s{|uare dance.

Scholarship Aid 
Increases Yearly 

by Harry Bird 

During the past five years Wil- 
liams has seen, along with a rise 
in tuition, a steady increase in the 
number and size of scholarships. 

Director of Admissions Preder- 
ick Copeland noted that the schol- 
arship is a "very, very vital cog in 
the makeup of the student body 
and the running of the college." 
It is a means, he added, "to at- 
tract brilliant and unusual boys 
who could not come here other- 
wise." He went on to say that this 
is definitely not meant to entice 
prospective students away from 
other colleges. 

Scholarship Rise 

Scholarship aid has risen from 
$142,000 to $252,000 over the past 
five years. Over this same period, 
the number of recipients of schol- 
arships has increased from 196 to 
234, or from 18.7 per cent to 21.3 
per cent of the student body. Tui- 
tion over this period has risen from 
$700 to $1100. 

The rise in scholarships can be 
attributed to increased interest and 
to the rise in tuition, since some 
who could have afforded the pre- 
vious tuition rate can no longer 
afford it, although they qualify 
academically for the college. An- 
other factor is the availability to- 
day of numerous scholarships 
through industry and national 
programs which were not available 
five years ago. 

Scholarship Average 

The present average scholarship 
at Williams amounts to $1075, with 
a range in general from $100 to 
$2370. Much of this money comes 
from tuition fees, through a new 
formula recently devised by the 
trustees whereby 20 per cent of 
the tuition income is devoted to 

'Student Drive Toward Mediocrity' 
Cited By AMT Assistant Mathews 

bij Paul L. Samuelson 
"Today's Williams undergraduate isn't slipping into medio- 
crity, he's sustaining a tremendous drive toward it." This is the 
incisive commentary of Bob Mathews '56 on the plight or rather 
flight of the Williams student in the past five years. Mathews, 
himself an expresident of Cap and 
Bells, is now Assistant Director of 
Drama at the Adams Memorial 

According to Mathews, there are 
two characteristics of this atrophy 
of the true individual. The first 
may be termed the phenomenon of 
"No Opinion." The student attains 
mediocrity by "standing pat." The 
lack of desire to express an opinion 
about anything "goes deeper than 
merely conforming." It is due to 
the more specific characteristic of 

Egocentric Drive 

Mathews states that this is ex- 
hibited by the student's inability 
to look at himself as an individual. 
"It is ramified by a terrific ego-

music. DeMallie stated that the 
dance's 11 p.m. closing may be ex- 
tended to midnight if there is suf- 
ficient interest. 

This will be just one phase of 
this weekend. Little Three con- 
tests with Amherst, in varsity 
hockey, frosh hockey, and fresh- 
man basketball are also scheduled. 
In addition, for those who wish 
a change of pace from square 
dancing, the Key will present Wil- 
liams' own "Hound" with rock 
'n roll in the Rathskeller. Free 
beer will be provided. Freshmen 
will have extended dorm hours. 

Adelphic Union Plans 
Fraternity Competition 

The second round of the intra- 
fraternity debates has been .sche- 
duled by the Adelphic Union for 
the week of March 7-14. Eight 
teams will debate the issue, "Re- 
solved that the United Nations 
should be given coercive power". 

Chi Psi will be matched against 
A. D., Delta Phi against D. U., Phi 
Gam will oppose Sig Phi, and the 
Freshman team will be pitted a- 
gainst Psi U. The semi-finals and 
finals will be held in April. 

The Adelphic Union is also 
planning to have its debating team 
journey to Hofstra, NYU, and Sie- 
na in the coming weeks. Frosh 
debaters Ed Volkman, Eugene Cas- 
sidy. Glen Thurow, Fenner Mil- 
ton, and Murray Ingraham are all 
slated for action in the upcoming 

The team flew to McGill Uni- 
versity in Montreal February 20, 
and Bob Nagro '60, and Ted Op- 
penheimer '59, led Williams to a 
third place. Several college teams 
debated the same issue to be used 
in our intrafraternity matches. 
Included were Amherst, MIT, Har- 
vard, Princeton, & Dartmouth. 

Gul Picks Brown '61 
For Editorial Position 

David S. Brown '61 was appoint- 
ed managing editor of the Guliel- 
mensian yearbook for 1960, Friday. 
Brown will work closely with "Gul" 
editor John Byers in directing all 
phases of the organization's acti- 

The managing editorship was 
created this year when out-going 
"Gul" editors Tom White and El- 
iot Morss decided that a reorgan- 
ization of the staff was necessary 
for the yearbook. White and Morss 
in consultation with Byers and 
Brown will appoint the heads of 
all other departments sometime 
this week. 

James Ostendarp, formerly 
assistant football coach at Wil- 
liams, has been recently ap- 
pointed head football coach at 
Amherst. He left Williams last 
year to become the defensive 
football coach at Cornell. Os- 
tendarp will replace John Mc- 
Laughry, who left Amherst to

Tlic RECORD received a letter on Saturdav 
which was not printed. It was written by i' "litl- 
dle-affed woman li\iii^ in Williamstown and 
poiiit.s out the shockinj^ lack of inKlerstandinif of 
collej^e problems and i)eisonalities which e.xists 
in a militant form in Williamstown. 

The author suggested that the colley;e replace 
the Delta Kapi^a Epsilon house with a larj^e re- 
sidence facility ojien to all members of aU 
classes, all fraternities with lounges, dining halls, 
a library and a big study which could be ke]Dt 
open and lighted far into the night. To huild 
this, the four or five houses which the author 
understands to be laboring under financial han- 
dicaps would pool their resources with an equal 
sum from the college to build such a facility. The 
debt to the contributing fraternities could be 
handsomely and gratefully acknowledged, she 
says, with a memorial feature of some kind. 

Initially, the author has no idea that such a fa- 
cility exists in Ba.xter Hall. Conceivably, H. M. S, 
Ba.xter (so nicknamed because of its ferryboat 
architecture) might be enlarged to accommodate 
more students. 

Secondly, she has no conception of the under- 
graduate situation and state of mind. The moti- 
\'ation for the letter, stated in a paragraph added 
at the end, has virtually no justification. It is 
based upon years of accumulated prejudice a- 
gainst the fraternity system. 

The pendulum has swung too far to 
■ ' -t scons stuck-with the in- 
, , .le.viit cwn in "total 0)))3or- 
tiiiiily and an out-inoded form of cam- 
pus life. Let's swing to a more liberal 
and progrcssi\e movement. 

How docs the establishment of a superfluous but 
nondiscriminatory "facility" have the answer to 
the problems of injustice which periodically 
erupt on the campus? By whose standards is 
fraternity life anachronistic? 

Without any possible doubt, fraternity life is 
that which has undergone more change than al- 
most any other Williams tradition or value in 
the last fifty years. Selectivity, while preserved in 
form, is not an actual fact. The fraternities to- 
day are searching for an identity which they 
must find in order to continue as a contributory 
and positive force in college life. The values 
upon which the associations were originally foun- 
ded offer few attractions to present Williams 
students. A bond in secrecy is, to most members, 
a nice tradition which has not much validity 
per sc. 

In the future of ex]janding enrollment, the fra- 
ternities must recognize a new iDurpose. They 
must become the ujiholders of the right to con- 
test opinions; tliey must promote individual in- 
tegrity; they must provide the members with as- 
sociations of which they are proud; they 
offer the student a place in which he is some- 
one, a place where he is respected. 

No student union can ever perforin tliese func- 
tions. No student union can ever have any pur- 
poses other than to efficiently feed and recreate 
the amorphous "student body," 

Admittedly, the actualities of life in fraternities 
at Williams are presently far from the ideal of 
the future. The tendcnaj however, is toward the 
recognition that fraternities arc most valuable 
as associations of students which recognize in- 
di\idnal worth and weakness, which contribute 
materially to the education of a man. 


what next? 

The snow melts and behind the scenes in the 
committee sessions and office conferences plans 
are made; release dates are set. It is a time when 
everything is in abayance awaiting the renewal 
of lire which comes after the big holiday session. 
Underground, issues of all sorts are being form- 
ed—issues which purport to stir the very roots 
of Williams society. 

It is strange that "civilized" and "educated" men 
who function more often than not in artificial 
light are still influenced by such mundane con- 
siderations as cycles of climate.

Guest editorial 

what price? 


Several weeks ago, the president of Sarah 
Lawrence College resigned his position to re- 
turn to teaching and study in his field of inter- 
est. Dr. Harold Taylor said that he felt that his 
administrati\e duties were |3reventiiig his per- 
sonal direction of the education of students in 
his charge. 

Two weeks ago. Dr. Lloyd \V. Daly similarly 
explained the reason for his imjiendiug resigna- 
tion as dean of the University of Pemisyhania. 
He stated that his administratixe duties did not 
allow him sufficient time to pmsue the scholar- 
ship and learning which is his i^rimary interest. 

Dr. Daly's decision, and, more importantly, 
his reasons for that decision, point up one of 
the major fallicies in the American system of ed- 
ucation. A brilliant student who continues his 
study, receives advanced degrees, teaches to 
impart his knowledge to others. When he 
achieves an advanced level of both knowledge 
and skill, he finds that with his greater seniority 
and scholastic status come a large body of con- 
flicting duties. At the very time when he should 
be making best use of his accumulatt:d know- 
ledge and abilities, he is forced to spend his time 
in administrative red tape. 

In recent years, a great many professors have 
been unable to reconcile both areas and have 
chosen the one which they consider to be the 
most important— /cana'/ig. Dr. Daly joins an 
increasing number who are fleeing from the 
burdens placed upon them by the professional 
organizers who have taken over the American

It was the vigorous pronouncements

Dr. Edwin T. Dahlberg 
Robert Matthews has a few ideas which may 
make him hear of— or which at least ought to re- 
ceive some attention. You can read a few else-

Jerry Rardin makes, in his letter to the edi-

from some points of view. 

Neither dissenter will, in the forseeable fu- 
ture, be sent to the cross, literally or figuratively. 
Everyone today is eminently entitled to his own 
opinion. It is a small part of our ever more coin- 
]irehensive American Heritage that each must 
respect the others' point of view. 

Is this cacqun pour soi conducive to actual 
thought about the matters which are left to one's 
own inter|5retation? The consc(|uence of allow- 
ing each to harbor his own ideas in unchallenged 
"superiority" seems in practice to result in the 
phenomenon of not giving a damn about any-

To the editors: 

While attending the current 
(and quite humorous) display of 
Dadaistic art at the Lawrence Art 
Museum, I found, much to my sur- 
prise, a few contributions by facul- 
ty and student artists. 

These were all quite delightful, 
with one possible exception — that 
being a creation entitled "Cripple 
with Fire Extinguisher," or 
"Where were you on our wedding 
night. Mother," by an anonymous 
student, or group of students, un- 
der the assumed name of Olga. In 
case you have not been exposed to 
this distasteful piece of "art," it is 
composed of a bird cage containing 
• among other things) a small plas- 
tic figurine of Christ, an enema 
tube, a poem entitled 'Mother," 
and a photograph of two charred 

"Distasteful" Birdcage 

I can see the point of humor well 
taken in the other Williams' ex- 
hibits, but this one seems to exceed 
the bounds even of college humor. 
I think the possible effect of this 
display on visitors, if misunder- 
stood, may well be deleterious to 
public opinion of the college and 
its undergraduates. I think appro- 
priate action should be taken on 
this display.

Today, with earnestness and so1)riety, we make the second of 
our forays into .sociiil sciciiuo. We take up the most ba.sic of all 
social sciences— sociolojiy itself. 

SoeioloKy tcaclu's us that man is a social animal. It is not 
instinct or heredity that dctennines liis conduct; it is environ- 
ment. This fact is vividly borne out wlien you consider the case 
of Julio Si^afoos. 

Julio, abandoned as an infant in a dark wood near C'Icvoland, 
was adopted by a p;ick of wild do^s anil reared us one of their 
own. When Julio whs found by u hunter at tlie hkc of twelve, 
the poor child was ninro canine tlian luniian. He ran on ail 
fours, Ijarked and growled, ate raw meat, lapjx'd water with his 
tonjine, and could neither speak nor understand one single W(jrd. 
In short, he was a conijiletc i)ro(luet of liis environment. 

Julio, incidentally, was more fortunate than most wild chil- 
dren. Th(iy never become truly humanized, hut Julio was e.\- 
ceptional. Bit by bit, he be^an to talk and walk and eat and 
drink as people do. His lons-donnaiit mental processes, when 
awakened at last, turned out t(j be fantastically acute. He was 
so bright that he learned to read and write in a niontli, sot 
through grammar school in three years, and binh sclionl in two. 
And last June as thousands of sjjeetators, knowins the odds 
Julio had overcome, .stood and raised elieer after cheer, he was 
graduated valedictorian from Cal Tech with a degree in a.stro- 

\Vlio can say to what towerinR beichts this incredible boy 
would have risen had he not beeu killed the day after conuuence- 
meDt while chasing a car?

But I digress. To return to socioloRV, people tend tn pcatlier 
in sroups-a tendency that bejJian, as we all know, with the 
introduction of Miirlhoro Cigarettes. Wliat an iiid to socialahty 
they are ! How benignly one looks ujion one's fellows after inilT- 
ing'on Marlboro's filter that reiilly filters, on Marlboro's flavor 
that's really flavorful. How eniner it makes one to extend the 
hand of friendship! How Rrateful we all are to Marllioro for 
niakinK possible this togetherness! How tiimd not to hve m the 
bleak pre-Marlboro world with every man a stranger! 

The groups that people live in today (thanks to Marlboro) 
vary widely in their customs. What is perfectly aeei'iitable m 
one society may be quite outlandish in another. Take, for ni- 
stance, the case of Us \an Wyck. 

Ug, a Polynesian lad, grew up in an idyllic South Sea isle 
where the leading event of the year was the feast of Max, the 
sun god. A quaint all-day ceremony was held, with trilml 
dancing, war chants, fat-lady races, i>ie-cating contests, and, for 
the grand finale, the sacrifice of two dozen maidens. 

According to Ug's folkways, sacrificing maidens was entirely 
acceptable, but when, in his eighteenth year, he was sent as an 
exchange student to the ITniversity of Wisconsin, he so(in 
learned that Americans take a dim view of this jiractice - u' 
Wisconsin, at any rate. The first fifteen or twenty maidens I g 
sacrificed, he was let off with a warning. Wlieii, however he 
persisted, drastic measures were taken: be was depledged by

Freshmen - Mature And Intelligent 

I Editor's note: a brief study of 
the freshman class— this feature 
was written by Michael Mead with 
the assistance of Bayard Bastedo 
and Rick Seidenwurm.) 

". . .a particularly mature group 
of individuals, with drive and in- 
telligence," says Dean of Fresh- 
men William G. Cole of the class 
of 1962. He points out that in ad- 
dition to their athletic prowess, 
they have done quite well schol- 
astically. "1 have heard no unfav- 
ourable comparisons," Dean Cole 
claimj, "they have aroused great 
enthu.siasm among the faculty." 

Direcior of Admissions Frederick 
C. Cope!and comments that they 
were a "good class on paper" and 
have lived up to his expectations. 
"We were looking for men with 
interests, who would be stimulated 
by the intellectual to profit and 
contribute and contribute in the 
classroom." The Admissions Com- 
mittee succeeded to the point 
where not one freshman was drop- 
ped after the first semester for 
academic rea.sons and 19 per cent 
of t.ic class managed to achieve 
the iionor roll. for Williams runs 
high in tiie class, indicated by the 
fact that a higher percentage of 
those accepted came to Williams

than ever before. 


As evidence of freshman matur- 
ity Dean Cole cites the decline in 
serious disciplinary problems as 
well as their scholastic attitude. 
At the risk of being old-fashioned, 
I regard food riots, water fights 
and so on as definite evidences of 
immaturity. We haven't had much 
of that sort of thing. 

Members of the faculty gener- 
ally feel this class brighter than 
in past years but disagree sharply 
about their intellectual drive. 

"They are less barbaric than 
usual. The life of the mind is not 
foreign to them," comments Ro- 
bert L. Gaudino of the political 
science department. Though the 
level of discussion in beginning 
courses is higher with this class, 
lie claims they are without intel- 
lectual drive. "They have too many 
.' classes," Gaudino maintains, "and 
hence have a chance to read only 
textbooks. To have an intellectual 
position, one must think things 
out, and they have not had a 
chance to do so." Spanish profes- 
sor Louis C. Perez feels his fresh- 
man classes are generally brighter 


no intellectual drive?" 

but without any really dominating 
members. This equality of intel- 
lect leads to "a wider area of stu- 
dent participation, where each is 
an integral part of the class." In- 
tellectually, however, they will not 
go out on a limb. 

Won't Play It Safe 

English department lecturer Da- 
vid W. Boulton takes the opposite 
side, claiming his freshman classes 
were not willing to play it safe 
and settle for a C but preferred to 
take a chance for higlier grades. 
But at the same time he com- 
ments on a general lack of really 
powerful motivation, since the ec- 
onomic and social situations are 
satisfying. This, he regards as a 
phenomenon of post-war Ameri- 
can education. History professor 
Robert L. Waite sees a greater in- 
dividuality as well as fewer weak 
students in the class of 1962 than 
in any of the nine previous fresh- 
man cla.ises. He agrees with Boul- 
ton on the willingness of fresh- 
men to go out on an intellectual 

Athletically, the freshmen have

defenseman John Roe. 

At 14:26 of the second period

Saturday the varsity squash 
team evened their intercollegiate 
record at 5-5 by trouncing Wes-

met Amherst to decide the Little 
Three title, which last year Wil-

9-0, and topping Amherst 8-1. 

Greg Tobin started the Ephs 
off right by edging his strong op- 

traded points pretty evenly, with 

Wesleyan getting the edge and 

with a minute left to go, Wesleyan 

led 65-60. Then Skinner dropped in 

four free throws to sew it up for 

the Cardinals. 

Strangely enough, the Ephmen 

lost the game at the foul line. Both 

teams had 25 baskets, but Williams 

was outscored 21-10 at the foul 

line. One of the Williams teams j ponent in five games. Co-captain 

strongest points this .season has 

been their proficiency in free

The highlight of last week was I ceive special notice. Skip Chase, in 

a bid received by the basketball 
team to play in the NCAA small 
college basketball tournament. The 
last time this happened was in 
1955 when Williams finished the 
season with a 17-1 record, the one 
loss being in the first game against 
Amherst. Williams was Imocked out 
of the tournament in the first 
round by Canisius. That was before 
the toui'nament was split up into 
two divisions, one for the small 
colleges and one for the larger col- 
leges. This year's team will travel 
to Burlington, Vermont next week- 
end where they will compete a- 
gainst St. Michaels, runner up in 
the NCAA last year. Adelphi, and 
Le Moynes in Buffalo. The winner 
of this, which is one of the 8 re- 
gional playoffs around the coun- 
try, will go to Evansville, Indiana 
to compete with the other 8 final- 
ists for the small college title. 
The wrestling team's victory ov- 
er Wesleyan is one Coach DeLisser 
can well be proud of. The matmen 
went into the contest an underdog 
because Wesleyan had beaten Am- 
herst by a greater score than we 
had. Outstanding performances by 
every member of the team were 
registered, but a couple should re- 

the 147 division returned to the 
mats Monday after a long illness, 
and in one week, guided by Coach 
DeLisser's rigorous training, whip- 
ped himself into good enough 
shape to soundly trounce his op- 
ponent Saturday. Captain Kuhrt 
Wieneke stretched his unbeaten 
string this year to 7 with his vic- 
tory. Some of the fans might have 
wondered about Bob Hatcher's op- 
ponent's first two points in the 
heavyweight match . . . His man got 
two points for a take down which 
didn't appear to many to be a real 
take down, but the referee was 
knocked off his feet, and when he 
looked up, it looked as though 
Hatcher's man had control of him. 
It could have gone either way . . . 
Bob will have a chance to get an- 
other crack at him in the New 
Englands, which will be held in 
Springfield next week. 
The varsity hockey team will get 
their last chance to even then- re- 
cord when they meet Amherst this 
Saturday. They go into the game 
with an 8-9-1 record. The two 
teams met twice earlier this sea- 
son. In Rye, New York, Williams 
won 2-1, and then lost later in the 
season at Amherst 4-3.

•59, and Dick Willhite '60 are al- 
ready at work on what will be the 
first entirely student-run produc- 
tion in two years. Their script will 
stress humor within the broad area 
between satire and slapstick. 
Color Control 

In line with the revue's emphasis 
on color, Pru Barker has been giv- 
en one of the largest costuming 
budgets of the past ten years, and 
Sandy Saunders '60 is designing 
appropriate .sets. Bennington's 
Joan Lapier is handling the cho- 
reography for dances ranging from 
the familiar slapstick to the so- 
phisticated pantomine. Mike Small 
'61 and Tom Hertel '59 are writing 
and orchestrating music which in- 
cludes both progressive jazz and 
romantic ballads. "We hope to have 
material with artistic merit," said 
Culman, "and we wish to channel 
enthusiasm along more imagina- 
tive lines." 

Of a planned cast of twenty-five 
students, only the fifteen male 
members have been chosen. The 
ten feminine roles will be filled 
when Bennington College returns 
to regular session. 

Williamstcwn Changes 
Soon To Dial System 

Williamstown will convert to 
dial telephoning on March 22nd. 

William J. McNamara, Business 
Office Manager of the North Ad- 
ams office of the New England 
Telephone Co. said that the 
switch "is in conjunction with a 
nationwide program." According to 
McNamara, this is part of a pro- 
gram to facilitate the adoption of 
DDD (Direct Distance Dialing) 
which will eventually come to Wil- 
liamstown. This program will e- 
ventually enable a person to dial 
any private phone in the United 
States direct from any other 

The local staff of 27 employees 
will be disbanded. Provision has al- 
ready been made for the transfer 
of the entire staff to other posi- 
tions in the company. 

Williamstown's 2100 telephone 
subscribers will be able to call each 
other by merely dialing five digits. 

Long distance calls will still be 
handled by North Adams operators.

J. Hitchcock '50 Will 
Advise News Bureau 

An experienced newsman is now 
supervising the Williams News Bu- 
reau. John C. Hitchcock, who gra- 
duated from Williams in 1950 and 
who has since worked as a reporter 
for the "Berkshire Eagle" and ot- 
her news organizations. 

Hitclicock hopes that his duties 
will help smooth the work of the 
News Bureau by giving it a per- 
manent advisor who will be able to 
minimize errors and discrepancies. 
"The News Bm-eau has been doing 
a very competent and able job 
throughout the years," he com- 
ments. "I think that continuity is 
what I'll give it." 

Hitchcock noted that undergra- 
duate writing is a key factor in 
determining a person's success in 
that field. He asserted, "I've found 
that, the good writers in these 
fields were also good writers on 
their respective campuses." 

Hitchcock commented on the 
RECORD. "I think the RECORD 
ranks high in readibility; its writ- 
ing is concise and 'tight'." 

Mathews Hits Student Mediocrity 

centric drive toward material well- 
being, "with a few brilliant ex- 
ceptions," has compromised his In- 
dividuality for the dream of the 
"good life." "If the events of one's 
life don't lead directly toward this 
goal, he avoids the detours that 
make him a man." The formula Is 
simple. "Take the easiest, shortest, 
and most scenery-devoid route. 
"There are many manifestations 
of this drive on campus. Among 
them are the virtual boycott of the 
theater, the embarrassingly small 
attendance at free concerts and 
AMT productions; the blind Indif- 
ference toward religion, and the 
absence of red hot letters to the 
editor in the RECORD." Typical 
of present altitudes, those letters 
that are submitted are 'bland'. 

Days Gone By 

Mathews longs for the atmos- 
phere of the days, not long past, 
characterized by the "bomb throw- 
er." He recounts the tale of a stu- 
dent who removed a part from the 
clock on the Congregational 
Church. The clock chimed 301 
time.s at 1 A.M. that morning. "Or 
how about the tale of the odd-ball 
who held WMS at bay one evening 
with a monkey wrench. He drove 
the cops crazy." And more recently, 
Mathews recalls the more rational 
student who took four years to con- 
struct a harpsichord. 

He attributes part of the "drive 
toward mediocrity" to the period in 
which present undergraduates were 

born and reared, Implying a con- 
trast with his own age group. "To- 
day's students were reared in 
peacetime. They know only plenty. 
They, again with a few brilliant ex- 
ceptions, have never had to think." 

Opportunities Unbounded 

Most definitely the school Is not 
to blame. In true liberal arts tra- 
dition, Williams provides the sam- 
pling which is "necessary for in- 
tellectual and cultural stimula- 
tion," With the great body of sup- 
plementary knowledge available, 
"opportunities are unbounded." 
Mathews even suggests making the 
curriculum harder in order to 
"make the students think." He 
adds, "The individual must learn 
to be responsible to himself." 

The solution to this ever-ex- 
panding problem lies with the stu- 
dent. "He must try to overcome his 
feeling of how important it is to 
know what other people think of 
him. He must rectify his false con- 
ceptions of good. Criteria such as 
how many classes one can sleep 
through and still get a "C" or who 
has the prettiest house-party date 
are detrimental to Individual 

Mathews sums it up by stating 
the thesis of social Keynesianism. 
"In order to make money, you've 
got to spend it. The Williams Col- 
lege student, like all liberal arts 
students, must learn that he has 
got to give of himself in order to

Returns to Little Three 

I IJrown University 

Ostendarji served the jiast season as defense coach at (Jor- 
,(■11, after spending three years as assistant football and head la- 
. losse coach for the Ephs. He 
. nine to Williams in 1955. coached 
[leshman football a year, then as- 
isted Len Walters in backfield 
aid defense through the '57 sea- 

Impressed by Williams' undefeat- 
,(! varsity season, Cornell Univer- 
ity offered Ostendarp the position 
of baclifield coach. In February of 
i>)58 he resigned from Williams 
but stayed on to coach lacrosse in 
ihe spring. Ostendarp also coach- 
,'d varsity wrestling. 

Army All-Star 

Born in Baltimore Ostendarp at- 
tended the University of Maryland 
one year, then joined the army, 
serving from 1943-46 as a para- 
uoaper .^n tliL- 82nd Airborn Divi- 
Klnii. Wh'':.> ai the service he play- 
ed football on the Division team 
and w.ij m the Seventh Army all- 
star team. 

Pro Star 

After tlie war Ostendarp entered 
Bucknell University, where he 
iilayed varsity football for two 
years. Due to the fact that he had 
played his freshman year at Mary- 
land, he was ineligible to play his 
senior year at Bucknell. Ostendarp 
therefore left Bucknell ana played 
two years with the New York Gi- 
ants. The following year he trans- 
ferred to the Canadian League, 
playing for the Montreal Alouettes. 
He was elected most valuable 
player in the League in 1952. 

hi 1953 Ostendarp returned to 
Bucknell to become backfield 
coach. While working in this ca- 
I)acity he introduced lacrosse to 
ihe University, where it has since 
developed into a popular sport. 

Ostendarp will not start offi- 
cially at Amherst till September, 
but he expects to spend some time 
on the campus this spring. 

Faison Discusses 
German Architect 

Professor S. Lane Faison, Jr., 
Chairman of the Art Department, 
spoke Thursday on "Johann Mi- 
cliael Fischer, Major German Ar- 
chitect." The lecture was profusely 
illustrated with color slides taken 
by Professor W. H. Pierson while 
in Germany on sabbatical last 

Fischer's Greatness 

"Fischer (1692-1766) was not 
only one of the foremost architects 
ol his time," noted Faison, "but 
one of the greatest of any age. His 
\vork, along with that of several 
contemporaries, counts as an equi- 
valent with the music of Bach and 
Handel, who were his exact con- 

During the seventeenth century, 
Faison continued, the practically 
ceaseless wars ruined German ar- 
chitecture. A rebuilding, however, 
took place during the beginning 
of the 1700's. "The first fifteen 
years of the eighteenth century 
were architecturally the greatest 
in Germany since the middle ages, 
even taking into account the im- 
mensely fertile years of the twen- 
tieth century." 

What Fischer accomplished, not- 
ed Faison, was the combining of 
the diverse baroque and rococo 
styles of this early spurt into a 
new and distinctive architectural 

Treasurers' Meeting 
Studies Amherst Plan 

stressing the value of training 
and experience, Arthur Davenport, 
resident fraternity man- 
ager at Amherst, appeared before 
the Treasurers' Council to explain 
that school's policy toward the 
various fraternity economic prob- 
lems. Davenport's appearance be- 
fore the Council was in connection 
with ex-president John Phillips' 
proposal that Williams adopt a 
plan similar to the one in effect 
at Amherst. 

Mr. Davenport began his report 
by emphasizing the value of a 
professional consultant who would 
be at the full-time disposal of the 
student house treasurers. His posi- 
tion at Amherst is based on his 
direct association with each social 
unit, which enables him to know 
the financial condition of each 
house thoroughly. 

The Amherst system is one of 
precision. Each treasurer works in 
close contact with the manager 
who corrects any budget errors 
that might exist. Like Williams, 
Amherst has a Treasurers' Council 
which is an independent organiza- 
tion that attempts to settle many

Ephs, Le Moynes 
In NCAA Playoff 

Today the Williams ba.sketball 
team travels to Burlington. Ver- 
mont to play the first round of the 
Northeast Regional Small College 
NCAA Tournament. Williams first 
round opponent Is Le Moynes Col- 
lege of Syracuse, New York. The 
first round winner will play the 
victor of the St. Micheals-Buffalo 
game on Saturday. 

The winner of the regional play- 
offs goes to Evansville. Indiana, 
where the eight regional winners 
will play three rounds to decide the 
small college champion. 

Williams goes to Burlington as 
the underdog primarily because of 
their 1st two games. However, if 
the early season form can be re- 
gained the team v;ill give its op- 
ponents a good fight. Williams goes 
into the tournament with a 14-7 
record. St. Micheals, runner up in 
last year's finals is the favorite to 
cop the regionals. 

The Ephs biggest asset for the 
tournament is their well balanced 
offensive attack. L: d by Jeff Mor- 
ton, Western Massachusetts' high 
scorer, Williams can explode in any 
game. Bill Hedemen, Sam Weaver 
and Capt. Pete Wil'mott round out 
the potent offense.

Red-Cross Bloodmobile 
To Arrive Next Week 

The National Red Cross Blood- 
mobile will be in Williamstown at 
the First Congregational Church 
March 9-10. The clinic will be open 
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. both 

In the last five years the Wil- 
liams College student body and the 
Faculty have contributed 80 per 
cent of the donations. 817 of the 
1017 pints of blood contributed 
have been from the college. 
Credit Donations 

Credit donations are also in- 
cluded in the program. With this 
a student may designate where 
and to whom his donation of blood 
may go. 

Thorns, chairman of the pro- 
gram, stated that each student 
between the ages of 18 and 21 had 
received a post card for parental 
permission. Students over 21 are 
eligible to give their blood without 
parental permission. They have not 

Thoms stated that many stu- 
dents had made appointments to 
donate blood. He stressed that 
these appointments should be kept. 
He has recor-ds of these appoint- 
ments in his office and advises all 
who have forgotten their specific 
times to come to his office and get 
the correct time. He also stressed 
walk-in donations and stated that 
they were the major source of do- 

Conference Gives 
'Key' New Ideas 

New ideas tor improving the Pur- 
ple Key Society are the result of 
Bayard DeMallie's and Steve Lewis' 
attending the Eastern Key Asso- 
ciation Conference at Wesleyan 
last weekend. 

The purpose of the conference, 
attended by fifteen other eastern 
colleges, was to provide an oppor- 
tunity for the participants to see 
the problems and practices of oth- 
er Key Societies. 

DeMallie and Lewis brought back 
ideas on how to improve school 
spirit and unity, and the role the 
Key should play in freshman ori- 
entation, especially with regard to 
explaining school tradition. 

In connection with the theme of 
the conference. Professor Sigmund 
Neumand of Wesleyan gave the 
keynote address, emphasizing the 
need for leadership in an era of 
crisis. Next year's conference will 
be held at Yale. 

Burns Preparing 
Book On Kennedy 

Williams Professor of Political 
Science James M. Burns is present- 
ly at work on a biography of Sen- 
ator John F. Kennedy of Mass- 
achusetts, tentatively entitled: 
"Kennedy — A Political Profile". 

Burns pointed out that the book 
will be a political, not a campaign 
biography. He is writing it, how- 
ever, on the assumption that Ken- 
nedy is a likely candidate to re- 
ceive the Democratic nomination 
for President in 1960. In Burns' 
words, the biography is "a balanc- 
ed, factual treatment of a man who 
is being studied by the voters". He 
hopes that it will be of help to 
them, and he feels that Kennedy 
has just about an even chance of 
obtaining the nomination. 
Religious Question 
Although the book will be mainly 
biographical. Bmns said: 'I am 

The purpose of such a change, 
the proposal explains, is to allow 
the student "enough time to as- 
similate and synthesize what has 
been taught during the term. A 
longer study period would permit 
1 the student to gain greater com- 
prehension and insight into his 
studies, and enable him to do more 
interpretive and analytical work 
on the final." 

"Invaluable Aid" 
In addition the committee ex- 
plained that, under the present 
system, if a student has two ex- 
aminations on the first day, he 
does not have enough time to pre- 
pare adequately for even one of 
these exams. 

Finally by allowing a longer stu- 
dy period, greater opportunity for 
review classes would be possible — 
"an often invaluable aid." 

"Our purpose this year has been 
to analyze the college curriculum 
from a student's point of view. We 
look upon the student body as our 
constituent, but only as we see 
fit and interpret our duties to it. 
Our present proposal arises from 
what we feel is a definite need in 
the final examination system. We 
offer it for consideration by the 
Faculty Committee, realizing our 
own limits in college policy," sta- 
ted chairman Al Donovair '59. 
Freshman Curriculum 
The committee is now making 
an interpretive study of the fresh- 
man curriculum, including an an- 
alysis of the comparative scholastic 
success of high school and prep 
school students. Its primary pur- 
pose is to study the reasons why 
a freshman is. or is not, intellec- 
tually stimulated by his courses. 

Physical Condition 

As a last qualification Thoms 
stressed that each donor should 
be in good physical shape. He em- | going to take up the question of

gular sleep were necessary. He felt 
that the lack of regular meals and 
sleep and the loss of blood could

Phi Betes Kim, Betz 
On Plato's Philosophy 

"Notes Toward the Definition of 
Thesis" was the title of the collo- 
quium presented jointly by the 
Williams Political Science Depart- 
ment and the Williams chapter of 
Phi Beta Kappa Tuesday evening. 
Deeming himself "Speaker of the 
House", moderator Robert Gaudi- 
no introduced "Her Majesty's 
Ministers of Wisdom". R. Warner 
Kim '59 and John H. Betz '59 re- 
spectively. Both spoke on different 
aspects of Plato's philosophy. 
Plato Defended 
Kim defended Plato against eigh- 
teenth century critics who termed 
him a "muddled-headed syncre- 
tist". He depicted Plato's philoso- 
pher as the valid representative of 
the "ideal culture". "He is given 
true freedom of reason because he 
is able to control his appetites and 
his passions". 

"The philosopher will never be 
free in the 'distractive existence' 
of democracy. Freedom is the pro- 
perty of the individual. In demo- 
cracy a philosopher is disciplined 
by the regime in which he lives. 
True freedom is freedom of the su- 
perior from the inferior. This can 
be only in the Ideal Republic". 

Betz compared law by consent 
with the natural concept of law. 
He went on to prove that the com- 
mon good is not the classical con- 
ception of right. In conclusion 
Betz expressed the benefit in deal- 
ing with the concept of natural 
right. "To improve a bad regime 
one must escape the historical and 
rely upon natural law," he main-

Curriculum committee To the editors of the RECORD: 

The student Curriculum Committee was consti- 
tuted last year by the Collej^e Council. Today, it 
submits a report of a matter which the members 
have fully discussed and which is needed at 

This is their first concrete action which has been 
made public. May it receive serious discussion 
in the faculty; it is a legitimate request. Beyond 
this sort of thing, however, the committee can 
perform a most valuable function. 

The student members, because of the respect 
in which the faculty certainly must hold them, 
are iir a position to channel legitimate complaints 
and suggestions of a more limited nature. Mem- 
bers of tlie Faculty Committee on Ai5])ointments 
find that students in general are unwilling to 
report their reactions to new teachers for fear 
of causing a faculty member's dismissal. There 
may be other reasons. In any case, it is valuable 
for die men who control faculty api^ointments 
to receive reactions to the abili'^ies of faculty 
members from all points of vi' \\ This is most 
emphatically not to say that tae faculty here is 
even as vulnerable to criticism as that of any 
other institution; there are, however, legitimate 
undergraduate ideas on the subject. 

The Curriculum committee can sift the com- 
plaints which it receives and can transmit these, 
along with favorable reactions, to key members 
of the faculty. They must do this in a completely 
confidential and informal luanner, but the re- 
sults would be more beneficial to the college than 
any other student-government function.

There has been of late a good deal of furor 
over questions of academic integrity and intel- 
lectual honesty, but I had not planned to address 
myself to these questions before Ajjril 12, on 
which date I have been invited to deliver the 
chapel sermon. However, the "distasteful bird- 
cage" letter which appeared in the last issue 
(Mar. 4) with my name forged to it prompts an 
earlier public statement on the matter. 

You will forgive me, I hope, if indignation 
leads me to ask whether "plagiarism in reverse" 
is not a more serious offence than the common 
garden variety of that crime. If a Williams man 
be expelled from his college for co)>ying on his 
quiz ]5aper the work of another student, is it un- 
reasonable to suggest that such a ]5enalty might 
justifiably be invoked for literarv forgery? 

This is but a hypothetical suggestion, of 
course, for the Williams honor code seems to 
be a one-way ]5roposition, effectiv only if the 
instructor has sharp eyes. Our of literary 
forgery will thus remain as ru'/nymous as do 
many violators of the academi. code. 

If the forger would have me take a religious 
position, as his letter seems to indicate, I am de- 
lighted to oblige. I shall stand firmly on Bibli- 
cal ground and refer Mr to the Word 

of God as Moses presents it in the 20th chapter 
of Exodus, 16th verse. (Exodus is the book im- 
mediately following Genesis. )

This incident is an unfortunate comment 
on the intellectual dishonesty of at least 
one Williams student. Periodic mimeo- 
graphed anonymous satires appear on 
the campus. Although the authors of 
such missies are dishonest in not reveal- 
ing tlieir identities so that their positions 
on various issues may be discussed, 
never is the origin of an opinion directly 

THE RECORD will hereafter be unable to print 
a communication from am/one on am/ subject un- 
less the author of the letter can be verified. 


To the editors of the RECORD: 

Friends have drawn my attention to the fact 
that some remarks of mine, as reported in your 
recent interview, are open to serious misinterpre- 
tation. Some readers have understood me to say 
that small colleges offer no educational advan- 
tages beyond sophomore year. What 1 said in 
fact was that the advantages of the small college, 
in my opinion, were most pronounced during the 
student's first two years.

Now there's a real drug 

Man came in the other day from one of the Houses, not a little per- 
turbed and about as frustrated asanyof us would be if every saloon 
in New York closed New Years Eve at 9 o'clock. 
Seems he'd been all over the area looking for a bottle of Pimm's 
Cup No. 1. He apparently wanted to recreate an evening spent in 
Bermuda, Nassau or some other watering spot where Pimm's is as 
routine as beer in a ball park. 

He couldn't find it anywhere until some kind, well-informed soul 
directed our friend to ALLSOP'S. Bit bedraggled, not even hopeful, 
he forlornly opened the door, said "Don't suppose you have a bottle 
of Pimm's?" 

"Sure do" we replied, wrapped it andaway hewent, happy asa lark. 
Maybe you have a similar problem from time to time. If so, try us. 
Can't guarantee we'll be long on Yugoslavian Refosco or even 
Cambas Kokinelli out of Athens. But you will find the best stocked 
purveyor of spirits north of 57th and 5th and if we don't have it we'll 
get it for you^ happily. What's more - we'll deliver it.

At All Times 




My Schaefer beer is almost gone, 
I say it now in sorrow, 
But oh, my chums, ah, hangers-on, 
There shall be more tomorrow! 


When I was one-and-twenty 
I heard a barman cry, 
'Give dollar bills and rubies. 
But keep your Schaefer, guy. 
It's got a smooth, round taste, lad, 
Never sharp, or flat.' 
But I was one-and-twenty. 
No use to tell me that. 

Again he said, 'Hang on it. 

Or you'll weep and smite the ground; 

In the very best of circles. 

It's Schaefer all around !' 

I smiled and did not heed him, 

Let others quaff my brew. 

And I am two-and-twenty now. 

And all he said was true. 


In wise New York did Kubla Khan 
A stately pleasure-dome decree: 
Where noble beer called Schaefer ran 
Through taverns measureless to man 
In a cold and golden sea. 


Jenny drank Schaefer when we met. 
In the little club we sat in; 
Surely, then, I can't forget 
To pause a moment and put that in I 
Say the days are sometimes sad. 
With just my beer to shout hurray for: 
Say I'm growing old but add 
Jenny drank Schaefer!

teams both succumbed to Amlierst; 
the varsity dropped a heart-break-

downed, 7-2. 

Greg Tobln easily overcame 
Rex Clements, who had been the 
only Sabrina to lose his personal

and seventh spots. Eph Co-captain 
Chris Shaefer forced Hazen into a 
fifth game before losing, 17-14. De-

to keep a lead and dropped his last 
two games to Joe Tulehin, 18-15

W. p. I. Defeats Ephs; 
Holds Morton To Six 

By Al Miller 

Williams' basketball team, rid- 
ing on the crest of a bid to the 
NCAA tournament, lost its second 
game in four days as Worcester 
Tech romped over them Tuesday 
night, 80-61. The Ephmen will go 
into the NCAA tournament with 
a 14-7 record. 

WPI jumped off to a quick lead 
and Williams never caught up. Led 
by Fred DiPippo and Fred Lutze, 
with 23 and 22 points respectively, 
Worcester had little trouble scor- 
ing against the Ephmen, who used 
both a zone and a man-to-man de-

High scoring Jeff Morton was 
held to 6 points, his low for the 
year, Bill Hedeman, who has done 
an exceptional job of taking up the 
scoring slack this year, was also 
held to six. The other three start- 
ers were in double figures, led by 
Parker with 14.

Icemen, Amherst 
Compete For Title 

The hockey season draws to a 
close this year when both the var- 
sity and freshman teams take on 
their Amherst rivals here tomor- 
row. The Little Three Champion- 
ship goes to the winners. 

In previous games this season 
the varsity defeated Amherst in 
their first meeting only to lose to 
them later. A victory would enable 
the Ephs to break even for the 
season. Their record is now 8-9-1. 

Seniors playing their last game 
for Williams are Tom Piper, Bob 
Lowden, Mike Grant, and Woody 
Burgert. A definite factor in the 
outcome will be the goal tending of 
Al Lapey. 

The undermanned Prosh sextet 
will be trying to get back to its 
winning ways, having had their 
skein of six undefeated games cut 
short by Kent last weekend.

Treasurers' Council 

Continued from Page 1, Col. 2 
of the undergraduate financial dif- 
ficulties. At times the Council 
finds itself unable to solve some 
of the problems that arise. Daven- 
port cited some examples of these 
problems and indicated the use- 
fulness of a professional mind in 
such cases. 

One example was a question that 
concerned both schools a few years 
ago. The Williams fraternities 
readily paid a State tax that the 
Amherst fraternity adviser con- 
sidered illegal and refused to pay. 
The State recognized the Amherj 
objection and did not require that 
they pay. Williams never retrieved 
the two thousand dollars that it 
had mistakenly paid to the State. 

"You can't expect amateurs to 
avoid such errors," said Daven- 
port. "No matter how good a stu- 
dent treasurer may be, he simply 
doesn't have the time to do an 
expert job. The result can be an 
inadvertent error sucli as this tax 
payment. Aside from the aspect of 
limited time, the students simply 
cannot gather enough experience 
in only one year at the job. He 
needs an experienced hand at his 
disposal. This is my primary func- 
tion at Amherst." 

The business manager also han- 
dles almost all of the large fra- 
ternity purchases. By doing this, 
he is able to buy on a wholesale 
basis and to save the houses a 
considerable amount of money. 

The reaction to the Phillips pro- 
posal has been generally unfavor- 
able. The dominant feeling is that 
a resident manager would lessen 


"An experienced hand" 

the power of the individual treas- 
urers and houses over financial 
matters. There is also the problem 
of salary payment. If a few houses 
rejected the proposal, there would 
be little chance for its success. At 
present, it is improbable that the 
plan will go into effect due to the 
threat of dissenting houses. Ac- 
cording to Jim Pilgrim, newly elec- 
ted Council president, "there is a 
definite need for positive action to 
be taken on the proposal." What 
action will be taken will be decid- 
ed at a meeting of the Council lat- 
er this month.

Waterman Gains NSF 
Grant Aiding Research 

Dr. .Mlyu f. WaU'rinan of the IJiolojfy Departiiu'iit ha.s been 
awarded a 'tlircc-ycar j^raiit ol .SUJ.SOO by the National Science 
{•"ouiidation for support ol liis re.seareli in einhryoloffy. 

The f^raiit, one of the larii; ever awarded a WiHiains pro- 
e.ssor for individual .study, lollow.s an $8,(X)() appropriation f^i\en 
A'aterman three years ai^o for work on the same project. 


The research involves study of 
Ihe thyroid-pituitary systems in 
fetal and adult slaves of the rabbit 
and certain other animals. Due to 
Uie use of radioactive iodine in the 
investigations the Atomic Energy 
Commission has granted in addi- 
lion $4,800 to the Biology Depart- 
ment for the purchase of equip- 
ment necessary in employing the 
radioactive substance. 

Honors I'rosram Aid 

Waterman emphasized the con- 
tributions of honors students who 
have taken certain aspects of his 
work for honors thesis. He stated, 
"These grants are predicated in 
part on the extent and quality of 
the honors program at the .school." 
He also pointed out that the acqui- 
sition of nuclear equipment will 
greatly increase the study opportu- 
nities for bio'ogy honors students. 

Waterman pointed out that large 
foundations give most of their 
grants to universities, wliere a 
great amount of research is carried 
on and the researcher is given spe- 
cial consideration. He said, how- 
ever, that his teaching load here 
compared favorably with that of 
other schools, and he is grateful for 
the lack of pressure to do research 
and the freedom to make inves- 
tigation where his curiosity lies. 

Small College Grants 

He said further that foundations 
are beginning to realize the value 
of making grants to small colleges 
such as Williams. Although reports 
are not turned out as fast and the 
physical plant is not as impressive 
as those of larger schools, the 
money provides the opportunity 
for students to combine the advan- 
tages of research investigation with 
small-college liberal arts training.

Wesieyan Will Raise 
Dorm. Room Rentals 

Following action by both the ad-

cided to raise its present dormitory 
room rents and to reconsider its 
upperclass dormitory regulations. 

University Vice-President and 
Treasurer, Howard B. Matthews 
explained that despite rent in- 
creases last year, dormitories are 
being operated at a loss. With the 
aim of balancing the dormitory 
budget, freshman room rents will 
be raised from $300 to $350 and 
upperclass rents from $250 to $300. 
Matthews emphasized that the new 
rates were predicated on the Uni- 
versity's being operated at a full 
capacity basis in the future. At 
present, Wesieyan has about 50 
vacant dormitory rooms. 
To Liberalize Rules 

On the level of student govern- 
ment, the Senate Dormitory Com- 
mittee representatives of the dor- 
mitory counsellors tentatively for- 
mulated a plan for the liberaliza- 
tion of upper class dormitory regu- 

In a separate plan, the student 
organization asked that women be 
allowed in the upper class dormito- 
ries during evening hours.

s Announces 
New *Gur Board 

Tlie selection of the Board for 
the 1960 Gulielmensian yearbook 
was completed Thursday. John By- 
ers '61, "Gul" editor for the 1960 
i:;;;uo, appointed associate editors, 
business board, and members of 
the staff for the coming year. By- 
ers had previously selected Dave 
Brown '61, as managing editor. The 
new appointments were made in 
conjunction with Byers' hope for 
a greater coordination in "Gul" 

Selected as the business man- 
ager is Rick Gilbert '61. Gilbert 
will head a business board of 
newly-named advertising manager 
Dick Smith '61, and assistant bus- 
iness manager Dick Beckler '61. 
Associate editors named are John 
Bauer '61, Robert Charles '61, 
James Langham '61, and Henry 
Silverman '61. Managing editor 
Brown will coordinate the efforts 
of the associate editors. 

Jones New Treasurer 

Matt Jones '61, was named treas- 
urer of the "Gul". Jones will work 
closely with Byers in the organi- 
zation of the finances for the year- 

Selected from freshman compets 
for the editorial staff are John 
Shoaff, Pi-ed Wentz, Stu Meyers, 
Bill Gray. Charley Kurtz, and 
Steve Shaw. Freshmen appointed 
to the art department of the "Gul" 
are George Opdyke. Pete Hayes, 
and Irv Marcus. 

Strong Managing Editor 

Discussing the merits of the new 
Board as a coordinating body, By- 
ers said, "The managing editor will 
be a co-advisor with the editor on 
all major decisions. The position of 
editor will be that of a coordinator 
of 'Gul' activities." 

The business board will be 
working closer with the editor 
than it has been in the past. "In 
spite of the fact that each student 
is taxed for the 'Gul', Byers also 
added, "advertising is vital to the

of Alumni concern about the suc- 
cess of future Alumni Fund drives. 

Figures made available by Char- 
ley Hall '15, Executive Secretary 
of the Alumni Fund, reveal that 
33.2 per cent of the Class of 1955 
donated $524 during the year af- 
ter their graduation, and 28.7 per 
cent of the Class of 1956 gave $571 
their first year out, while the 
Class of 1957 slipped to 15.6 per 
cent and $278. The Class of 1958 
gained slightly to 24.1 per cent 
and $407. 

Participate at Once 

Worried about this drop in par- 
ticipation of recent alumni, the 
Executive Committee decided in 
January to "urge the members of 
each senior class to begin parti- 
cipating in the Alumni Fund at 
once, rather than . . . preparation 
through an insurance company for 
their 25th anniversary gift. 

As a result of this decision, the 
Alumni Office is accepting dona- 
tions from the Class of 1959 this 
spring toward the 1959 Drive, 
which is technically in operation 
now, but concentrates its main from October 1, 1959 through 
January 31, 1960. 

In connection with this spring 
campaign, Willard Dickerson '40 
has just completed a series of in- 
formal talks to the senior Frater-

the mermen a lead they never re- 
linquished. The team easily won 
the 400 yd. medley relay in 4:06.2. 
Individual Winners 
Senior Don Lum followed with a 
surprise win over favorite Roger 
Nekton, of Springfield, last year's 
winner, in the 220 yd. freestyle. 
Lum later finished second to Nek- 
ton in the 440 yd. freestyle. 

Sophs Buck Robinson and Neil 
Devaney accounted for the Eph- 
men's remaining individual vic- 
tories. Devaney nipped Spring- 
field's Owen in the 100 yd. butter- 
fly, with a 58.6 clocking. Robinson, 
who holds the New England breast 
stroke record, defeated arch-rival 
Bill Jones of Amherst in 2:31.3. 
He also registered a fourth in the

Records Broken 

Establishing a new MIT pool 
mark, Mike Dively, Neil Devaney, 
Chip Ide, and Don Lum combined 
to win the 400 yd. freestyle relay. 
Their time of 3:34.3 lowered the 
previous standard by .9 seconds. 

In the only freshman event on

The Ephmen concluded their 
highly successful season with a 7-

a 44-42 heartbreaker to Army.

Physicist Park Talks 
On Superconduction 

In this technological society, 
much study is being directed to- 
ward the important research field 
of magnetic and electric properties 
of matter maintained at low temp- 
eratures. Molecular motion of mat- 
ter at such temperatures decreases, 
and physical quantum laws are 
characteristically exhibited. 
Part II 

In part two of the colloquium on 
"Low Temperature Physics", Pro- 
fessor David Park of the Physics 
Department spoke Monday about 
the phenomenon of superconducti- 
vity in metals, one important char- 
acteristic of matter at low temp- 
eratures. Professor Park said that 
superconductivity Is characterized 
by three phenomena; the disap- 
pearance of an object's resistance 
to electric current, the presence 
of the Melssner-Ochsenfeld Effect, 
and a marked reduction in the ob- 
ject's specific heat. "It is of in- 
terest that many common con- 
ductors, such as gold or silver, are 
not on the list of superconductive 
metals at low temperatures", stat- 
ed Professor Park. 

Bell Laboratory's physicist Bar- 
deen was cited by Park for his 
work which quantitatively describ- 
ed superconductivity.

relationship of journalism to poetry, expands hi.s 
sco|5e far bevontl the stati'd subject matter he- 
fore he has finished. Ivs|X'eiallv of our interest

sumption that "louriudism is concerned with the 
look of he world; jioetrv with the feel of the 

"We are deluged with facts, hut we have lost, or 
are losing, our human ability to feel them." The 
word, "a|5athy", has been thrown at us at least 
since we have been at Williams. This statement 
is, perhaps, a more adeenuite analysis of what 
ajiathv means than we have at iiresent. We know, 
ves . . . we have not lost our ability to see, to 
perceive; but soiuehow the information we re- 
ceive neyer gets beneath our .skin. We are bet- 
ter informed of our immediate and total world 
than men have ever been; yet, somehow, that 
world is as alien and impersonal as a sheet of 
statistics before us. We refuse to become involv- 
ed, we refuse to commit ourselves, we refuse to 
act . . . we refuse to leave our rather paranoic 
emi^irical stance and re-allv with a personal, iu- 
volviiK!: world. We watch the iiarade of life from 
a sterile ivory grandstand— never realizing that 
the jiarade will pass and leaye ns alone. im|5e- 
tent and meaningless. 

"The need for a review of the relation between 
education and the arts was never greater than 
at this moment, when our whole attention is 
fixed on the relation between education and the 
sciences." MacLeish's answer- to the stated pro- 
blem is im|)licit in this (|uotatioii: we must again 
focus our attention on the humanity of living; 
through this will grow an involvement in living. 
We niiLst re-establish the link from the eye to 
the heart. "The proper study of Mankind is 
Man"; we must realign the area of fact with the 
aiea of Miui if we are to r("maiii men at all. Wil- 
liams (College still remains on speaking terms 
with the arts (although, eom]iaring the condition 
of. Philosophy's (ioodi'ich Hall with the Science 
Quad, one might doubt tin- sincerity of their 
ac(piaintance). But, when considering what 
seems to he a necessary corallary to the study of 
arts . . . their actual furthering . . . Williams ap- 
pears in a state of collapse. This link from the 
heart to the hand— the extension of the "feeling" 
eye— in other words, creativity— is ignored. /\nd 
thus we are perpetuating what I would call the 
Numb Generation . . . the generation that sees 
but does not feel . . . and when it feels, cannot 
commuTu'cate its feelings to its fellows. 
Perha|5s it is a consolation to our Numh Gen- 
eration to know that our mentors are right along 
with us. 

P. B. Tacy '59 

In the past weeks there has been 
much talk in the Treasurer's 
Council of appointing a resident 
business manager to centralize and 
coordinate the financial practices 
of the Williams fraternities. At 
the next meeting of the Council 
on March 18, John Phillips will 
present a motion to set up the ap- 
paratus necessary to Install a re- 
silient business manager at Wil- 
liams. I am writing this letter in 
an attempt to get the motion de- 
feated. Instead I wish to propose 
a positive plan which would miti- 
gate the weak spots in our present 
system without requiring the cen- 
tralization and expense of a busi- 
ness manager. 

Improvement Necessary 
I agree that a more organized 
auditing system is necessary at 
Williams. If we hired one or two 
auditors on a yearly basis we would 
gain as much as we could from a 
resident manager. If we guaran- 
teed an auditor the work from sev- 
en or eight houses, we could hire 
him at a nominal charge. The au- 
ditor would not only audit the 
books but would also advise us 
on any tax or insurance matters 
involving the houses. The cost 
would probably be about a tenth 
of what a resident manager would 

I have heard the argument that 
a resident manager would decrease 
the disparity in costs to the mem- 
bers of our different houses. This 
is not true. The disparity in the 
disbursements, and therefore in the 
individual dues, in our houses is 
due to many causes. The houses 
have different fixed costs, difi'er- 
ent repair, improvement, ana 
maintenance costs. The member- 
ship ranges from 32 to 61 memoers 
per house. Alumni support also 
varies. The only way to standar- 
dize the cost of being in a house 
would be to live in dormitorips 
and eat at Baxter Hall. 







In defen,se of "Cripple With lire 
Extinguisher": to defend aestlutic 
expression from the insidious at. 
tacks of the cultural laity Is in 
self difficult, due to a disparii , 
modes of communication; 
when such an attack assumes 
guise of morality, and the att; 
ers cloak themselves in the robi 
righteousness. It becomes inn 
sible. Might we suggest that 
objectionable elements in a w 
of art are often confused will 
ements in the altitude of the 
server. With this thought in in net, 
let now those few amongst us ud 
themselves with the armor of . if- 
knowledge, arm them,selves v. :th 
the lance of truth, and ride fi th 
to purge this institution of the i r- 
ocious dragon. Hypocrisy.

On March 4, Mr. Arthur Daven- 
port, the Amherst resident busi- 
ness manager, addressed the Trea- 
surer's Council and outlined his 
duties at Amherst. In his intro- 
duction he stated that he would 
answer any questions w-e proposed 
even if he had to make up ficti- 
cious answers. He said he had per- 
fected this art of rhetoric in in- 
fluencing Amherst students for 
twenty years. This did not impress 
me favorably. 

I do not feel that a person com- 
parable to Mr. Davenport is need- 
ed or wanted at Williams. He 
showed us that he .saves Amherst 
large percentages on small and 
cheap items. The only real saving 
he makes is on fuel where an in- 
telligent committee of student 
treasurers could do anything a re- 
sident manager could. We already 
have ascertained that the remain- 
ing stumbling block to cheaper 
fuel rates rests on guaranteed pay- 
ments. Almost all of the items Mr. 
Davenport purchases at wholesale 
prices, Williams already pui^chases 
at comparable or cheaper prices 
through the centralized buying of 
the Student Union Commissary. 
No Centralization 
In this age of bureaucratization 
and centralization, I hope the lib- 
eral arts college can remain a 
bastion of free expression and in- 
dividuality. Nothing is to be gained 
by centralizing our house finances 
in a new bureaucratic leviathan. 
Let us realize that the centralizing 
tendency is a one way path and 
that power which Is centralized is 
rarely ever again decentralized. 

Not to improve our house finance 
situation would be irresponsible. 
But to allow the forces of reac- 
tion to swing the pendulum over to 
the institution of a resident man- 
ager would be just as irresponsible. 
We have all heard the cry that 
student activities need responsi- 
bility — here is some. 

SO, TC Adequate 

The Social Council and the 
Treasurer's Council can easily cope 
with our problems. To pass it off 
to some expensive bureaucrat 
would be passing the buck. If you 
agree that a resident business 
manager would be unnecessary,

Wed., March 11, 1959 


The last issue of the RECORD 
'Mar. 4) is fairly brimming with 
notices advertising the "medio- 
crity" of the Williams student 
body, the lack of "intellectual 
drive", and the need for more 
".stone-throwers". What is really 
needed is .something more con- 
structive to promote a more en- 
lightened, more thoughtful spirit 
on our campus. The crux of our 
"mediocrity" lies in an astounding 
dearth of organized outlets for our 
nascent intellectual drive. 

To an extent, some departments 
are already oriented in the right 
direction to supply these outlets. 
But what we, as supposedly intelli- 
gtnt, thoughtful young Americans 
need most is one course which 
would unite all the various stimuli 
of these various other departments, 
and provide something else, i.e. 
.something comparable to Dart- 
mouth's "Great Issues" course, 
wherein students could discuss 
their ideas and listen to well- 
known authorities on pertinent 
topics. Arthur Webster, '62

"In comparing Yale and Wil- 
liams students, I would say that 
Williams students are more polite 
but they work less," says Laszlo G. 
Ver.senyi, instructor in philosophy. 

Born in Hungary, he left before 
the end of the Second World War, 
and in 1948 went to study at Hei- 
delberg University. He then came 
to this country, took his B.A. at 
Yale in 1952. and, after more study 
at Heidelberg, returned to Yale for 
his Ph. D. in 1955. He taught there 
for three years, coming to Williams 
this fall. He speaks three languages 
fluently, and reads several others. 

"At Williams, freshmen are not 
permitted to take philosophy. I 
know of no other school of com- 
parable :;landing that follows this 
policy," he said. At the time the 
student has to select his major in 
April of his sophomore year, he has 
had little more than one semester 
of philosophy. "The trouble is that 
the student knows too little about 
the subject to make an intelligent 
choice, and the department doesn't

Secondary Education 

"American secondary education 
is inferior to secondary education 
in most European countries. This is 
a result of, well, a false interpreta- 
tion of what is 'democratic' In edu- 

"I mean that it seems 'undemo- 
cratic' to fail anybody, to separate 
the students and then give them 
education according to their abili- 

ty. In Europe there is selection. In 
other words, recognizing that peo- 
ple aren't equal in ability, educa- 
tion is geared more to the capabili- 
ty of the student himself. There 
can be a selection, rather than a 
general leveling where everybody is 
given the same thing. 

"All this, of course, does not 
mean that American education is, 
in the end, inferior to that in Eu- 
rope. What reestablishes the bal- 
ance is that in this country more 
people go to college than there. An 
American B.A. is certainly worth 
more than a European high school 
diploma, the Ph. D. worth at least 
as much as a European Doctor of 
Philosophy. So, the only difference 
is that here it takes longer to reach 
a certain level of education than in 
Europe, but this may not be alto- 
gether bad." 

Special Interests 

Though he wrote his dis.sertation 
on the contemporary philosopher 
Martin Heidegger, Versenyi has 
now turned his attention to the 
thought of Greece. He is at present 
working on a study of pre-Socratic 
humanism, dealing with the Greek 
conception of the nature of man 
up til the end of the fifth century. 
He plans to finish the study this 
summer. He is particularly inter- 
ested in Plato. The fact that his 
appraisal of the nature of man is 
if anything as true today as it was 
when he was alive, makes him

All. When do we make the scene again 

In thunder, lightning or in rain? 
When it's time for cool round Schaefer, cat. 
It's never sharp, it's never flat.

1 Witch. He's really wailing, man. 

Macbeth and Banquo come on like Gangbusters.

{By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys! "and, 
"Barefoot Hoy with Cheek.") 


Wliile up in the attic last week liidinfr fniin tlie tax man, T cune 
across a letter, yellow witli af;<', that dear old Dad had sent me 
when I was a rreslinian. 1 repniduce it below in the hope tiiat 
it may light your way as it did mine. 

"Dear !>on, (Dad always called nie Son. This was short for 
SonnenbiTi;, wliicli used to Ite my first nana'. I traded it last 
year witli a man named ^^a\•. He tlircw in two outfielders and 
a left-handed pitcher . . . Hut 1 digress.) 

"Dear Son, (IJad wrote) 

"I you are finding college very big and liewildering, 
and maybe a little frightening too. Well, it need not be that way 
if you will follow a few simple rules. 

"First of all, if you have any problems, take fheni to year 
teachers. They want to lielp you. That's what they are there fcjr. 
Perhaps they seem a litth; aloof, but that is only because they 
are so busy. Vou will find 3'our teachers warm as toast and 
friendly as ])ups if you will call on thom at an hour when they 
ari" not overly busy. l'\)ur a.m., for instance. 

"Seecaid, learn to budget your time. What with classes, activi- 
ties, studying, and social life all competing for your time, it is 
easy to fall into sloppy habits. Set up a rigid schedule and stick 
to it. Remember, there are only '2-1 hours a day. Three of 1\u'm\ 
hours must be spent in class. For every hour in class you nujst, 
of course, spend two hours studying. So there go six more 
hours. Then, as we all know, for every hour studying, you iiuist 
spend two hours sleeping. This accounts for twelve more hours. 
Then there are meals — three hours each for breakfast and lunch, 
four hours for diiuier. Never forget, Sonnenberg, you nuist 
chew each mouthful twelve hundred times. Vou show me a 
backward student, and I'll show you u man who bolts his food. 


"But college is more than just sleeping, eating, and studying. 
There are also many interesting activities which you must not 
miss. You'll want to give at least three hours a day to tlic campus 
newspaper, and, of course, another three hours each to the 
dramatic and nnisic clubs. .\nd let's say a total of eight liours 
daily to the stamp clul), the debating clul), and the foreign 
affairs club. Then, of course, nine or ten hours for fencing iuid 
bird-walking, and another ten or twelve for ceramics and tlirce- 
card monte. 

"Finally we come to the most im|)ortant part of each day— 
what I call 'The Quiet Time.' This is a i)eriod in which you 
renew yourself —just relax and think great tliougids and smoke 
Marlboro Cigarettes. Why Marlboro'? Because they are the 
natural complement to the active lifi'. They have better 'mnkinV; 
the filter filters; the flavor is rich and mellow and a treat to the 
tired, a boon to the spent, a safe harbor to the storm-tosaed. 
That's ■why. 

"Well, Sonnenberg, I guess that's about all. Your kindly old 
mother sends her love. She has just finished putting up rather 
a large batch of pickles— in fact, ;i.')O,000 jars. I told her that 
with you away at school, \vc would not need so many, but 
kindly old Mother is such a creature of habit that, though I lii 
her quite hard several times, I could not dissuade her. 

Keep 'em flying. 


O ItM Mu Sfai4 lU 

Bere'a more advice to freshnwn — and ttpperclaKsmen too. 
If non- filter cigarettes are your pleasure, double your pleas- 
ure with Philip Morris, made by the makers of Marlboro.

John Mayher 

"The most enterprising students 
at Williams still have a hard time 
working their way through college 
without scholarship aid" accord- 
ing to Hem-y N. Plynt Jr. director 
of the Office of Student Aid. There 
are a great many positions on the 
campus, however, in which one can 
earn enough to cover at least part 
of his expenses. These jobs include 
many aspects of college life and 
can be most easily divided into 
two categories; students actually 
on the college payroll and students 
who receive commissions for sales 
to the student body. 

The most lucrative positions, 
aside from student waiters in the 
fraternities and Baxter Hall, come 
in the field of soliciting from one's 
fellow students. Student entrepre- 
neurs earned $8,618 in 116 differ- 
ent jobs in 1958. These jobs vary 
from selling cotton candy or birth- 
day cakes to enticing the partying 
collegian into buying beer mugs or 
to spend ten glorious days in Ber- 
muda or Nassau. Other areas for 
enterprise include selling used fur- 
niture, passing out free cigarettes, 
and supplying the Williams man 
with perfume and/or a scarf for 
his latest amour. 

Teaching Assistants 

The college payroll includes po- 
sitions that vary in many respects 
and employ both the mind and the 
back. From these 144 jobs students

earned $13,755 last year. There are 
21 student teaching assistants in 
the Economics, Chemistry, Physics, 
and English Departments who per- 
form duties varying from correct- 
ing papers to actually teaching 
classes. Some of the less intellectu- 
al positions for which students are 
employed include attendance tak- 
ing in lectures, assisting in the li- 
brary, and selling tickets at college 
sports events and the AMT. 

Summer employment is the most 
lucrative way the undergraduate 
has of financing his college educa- 
tion and over the past summer TB^i 
of the student body earned $431, 
000 at an average of $533 per man. 
Working at 65 different occupa- 
tions, 46 students earned over one 
thousand dollars and held such 
varied jobs as gravediggers, disk 
jockeys, and a customs inspector. 

Hedeman Leads Ephs 
To Victory Over Jeffs 

by Al Miller 

Monday night the varelty bas- 
ketball team closed out one of 
their most successful seasons in 
recent years with a 65-62 victory 
over a determined Amherst squad. 
Williams jumped off to an eight 
point lead early in the first half 
and built it up to ten as the half 
ended with Amherst behind 34-24. 

The second half started out the 
same way as the Williams team, 
led by the outstanding all around 
play of Bill Hedeman and the out- 
side shooting of Pete Willmott, in- 
creased their lead to twelve points. 
Then Amherst, led by their play- 
making guard. Bob Madgic, began 
to press the Ephs and gradually 
cut down their lead until with a 
minute left to play, Williams was 
leading by a single point, 63-62. 
Williams froze the ball and with 
ten seconds left to play, Hedeman 
was fouled. He sank his two foul 
shots to gi''e Williams their margin 
of victory. 

Hedeman High 

For Williams, Bill Hedeman 
played one of the outstanding 
games of his college career, as he 
led the team with 25 points. Be- 
sides his scoring, he dominated the 
boards for Williams. Pete Willmott 
and Jeff Morton gave him solid 
support in the scoring column with

The 'Cow's' business board has 
already doubled last year's income

Royal Reileds On His Experiences; 
Emphasizes The Need For Humor 

By ,lohn Fergruson 

As he began to speak, the man's 
face creased into a pleasant smile. 
"One of the pleasures of growing 
old." he .said, "is being able to look 
back. If I had it to do over again. 
I would still want to be a police 
chief in a college town." 

The man, Chief George A. Ro- 
yal of the College Police, can look 
back on a career of police work 
spanning thirty-one years. Return- 
ing to his boyhood town in 1928, 
Royal became the second man to 
be Williamstown's Chief of Police. 
"I was absolutely green at the 
start". Royal recalled, "but I learn- 
ed. It was a matter of gaining ex- 
perience in applying common 

Department Grows 

For eighteen years after he be- 
gan. Chief Royal was the only man 
in Williamstown's Police Depart- 
ment. Gradually, as the town grew 
so did the department, and when 
Royal left to take his present job 
he was supervising three other 

Reminiscing over his career. Ro- 
yal pointed out, "A sense of humor 
helps give a sense of proportion to 
any job. As a policeman I've run 
into a lot of unpleasant people, but 
I still like to work with people. I 
find that where there are people 
there is always something inter- 
esting." Royal reflected momen- 
tarily on the difficulties of being a 
policeman in a small town. "When 
you know everyone, its sometimes 
hard to do your duty. I had to 
train myself to be objective and 
to eliminate my personal feelings." 
Student Pranks 

Tlie smile quickly returned a- 
gain and the brown eyes twinkled 
faintly as Chief Royal remembered 
how he coped with the pranks of 
past students, many of whose sons 
are now at Williams. "Every gen- 
eration has a little different out- 
look, but human nature remains 

Shaw's Candida 

By Paul L. Samuelson 

"Candida" has been called the 
most enduring of George Bernard 
Shaw's plays by many critics. Ex- 
tolling Shaw, Heyw-ood Broun, in 
a 1921 edition of "The World", 
said "Blessed are the delicate of 
touch, for their work shall know 
long life". Almost forty years la- 
ter, Broun's prophecy has been i-ea- 

Fragile and Sensitive 

An extremely fragile and sensi- 
tive play "Candida" is speckled 
with humor and profound insight 
into human value and behavior 
patterns. In Giles Playfair's words, 
" 'Candida' is a woman with whom 
everyone in the audience will fall 
in love". The play's characters are 
as live and relevant today as the 
day they were conceived. 

Playfair will try "to bring out 
the meaning of the play in cos- 
tume". More money has been spent 
on costumes than any other pro- 
duction feature. The greatest out- 
lay has been in outfitting Candida. 
Admission Free 

Playfair makes it clear that 
since this production is being put 
on by the AMT and NOT Cap 
and Bells, admission will be free. 
Under the Student Card Plan, for 
the pre-paid tax of $2.00 all stu- 
dents are entitled to view four pro- 
ductions whose total cost "a la 
carte" is $6.00. The remaining 
two are "Candida", and "Darkness 
at Noon".

the same. Students of today are 
more industrious than those of the 
Twenties, but then they have to 
be. They don't think up any new 
tricks; they only use tricks new 
to themselves. I guess all police 
have the same problems, and thats 
why I'm a little cynical when I 
hear plans for reforming every- 

At this time nineteen years ago. 
Chief Royal was working on his 
most exciting case. On February 8. 
1940, » thief posing as an English 
teacher robbed the Chapin Libra- 
ry of one of the original Shakes- 
peare folios. For the next eight 
months Royal helped track the 
thief down. Commented Chief Ro- 
yal on the often glamorized life 
of a criminal investigator, "The 
periods of excitement are few and 
far between. It's often Just a mat- 
ter of hanging on." 

Tlromas Griswold will conduct a 
chamber orchestra in a concert 
program at Jesup Hall on Friday 
night at 8:30. The concert will con- 
sist of three rarely performed 
works, each involving its own in- 
dividual orchestral makeup. 

The selections were composed by 
Gabrieli, Brahms, and Stravinsky. 
The pieces represent widely sep- 
arated historical periods, from the 
Baroque of Gabrieli, through the 
Romanticism of Brahms, to the 
Hyper-modern of Stravinsky. The 
concert will open with Gabrieli's 
"Sonata plan e forte," a composi- 
tion for woodwind and brass. This 
will be followed by the "Octet for 
Wind Instruments," composed by 
Igor Stravinsky in 1924. The pro- 
gram will close with Brahms' "Se- 
renade in A Major," for small or- 

Williams Students 
Four Williams students will be 
performing. Allan White is play- 
ing the flute, Fi'ank Wolfe, the cla- 
rinet, Eddie Brasch, the trumpet, 
and Dave Hall will be the trombo- 
nist. The other members of the or- 
chestra will come from three states. 
The concert is sponsored by the 
Department of Music and is open 
to the public free of charge. To 
quote Griswold, "You will not even 
need your little pink tickets to get 

agencies, was begun in 1942. Its 
chief purpose was to provide a 
system of unified accounting for 
the fraternity houses. In this ca- 
pacity, it was successful in help- 
ing to straighten out numerous 
mishaps in the treasurers' books. 

Just as this organization was be- 
ginning to function well, the war 
intervened and shut the fraterni- 
ties down. 

Second Experiment 

In 1946 the houses reopened, but 
it was not until 1949 that the plans 
for Williams' second experiment 
in CBM were formulated. Frank 
Thoms Jr., now Director of Athle- 
tics, headed this group and was 
aided by Stewart Dalrymple, '50. 

In addition to auditing work, this 
group also explored the possibili- 
ties of collective buying at Wil- 
liams. This was possible only in 
certain areas due to a lack of ware- 
house and refrigeration facilities 
on campus. 

Substantial Saving 

The CBM report for the fiscal 
year ending February 15, 1951 re- 
vealed that the committee took 
some remarkable strides in this 
area. In the field of fuel oil con- 
tracting, it was found that an Ad- 
ams company would underbid the 
present supplier by 1.1 cents per 
gallon, netting the fraternities a 
total saving of $850. Unfortunately 
the National Emergency Act inter- 
vened and the project was reluc- 
tantly abandoned. 

This group also helped in secur- 
ing contracts for fraternity laun- 
dry, insulation, and exterminating 
as well as group purchasing of chi- 
na, furniture, carpets, and kitchen- 
ware. It assessed each social unit 
$250 and saved $4760 for a net sav- 
ing of $1260. Savings could have 
been substantially greater were it 
not for the reluctance of certain 
houses to purchase through CBM. 

The Sterling Committee Report 
of 1951 which deferred rushing to 
the sophomore year necessitated a 
change in purchasing policy since 
the fraternities would lose one- 
fourth of their membership. Tlius, 
the present plan was adopted 
whereby the fraternities purchase 
their food and certain other items 
through the Student Union Com- 
missary under the direction of Mr. 
Sidney Chisholm. 

Student Body Donates 
124 Pints Of Blood 

Williams College students gave 
124 pints of blood to the Red Cross 
drive held at the Congregational 
Church on March 9-10, according 
to Frank R. Thoms, Jr. '30, direc- 
tor of the campaign. A total of 
233 pints was donated by both stu- 
dents and residents of Williams- 

The student body gave a meager 
39 pints on the first day but urged 
on by a last minute appeal by 
Tlioms in the "Adviser" the stu- 
dents rallied to give 85 on the sec- 
ond day. Theta Delta Chi won 
the mythical blood bowl with 11 
pints donated. Thorns' only regret 
concerning this year's effort was 
that 198 students under 21 had 
been granted parental permission 
to give and never even bothered to 
inquire at the office.

Hello, Cow 

The State of the magazine business at Williams 
is never really good. The category of "under 
graduate publications" has a long list of titles 
which have written a long historv of failure. To- 
day the RECORD is the only campus publica- 

The productions of the j^ast haven t been con- 
sistently good. A magazine which attracts a sub- 
stantial readership must be ))ublished regularly 
and always interesting to those who may read it. 
During Spring House]5arties, the first issue of 
the Purple Cow will aj^jx-ar. The editors of the 
new magazine will have a difficult time for sev- 
eral issues— old humor magazines at WiUiams 
were only somewhat more successful than old 
literary magazines. The new Cow will ha\e to 
jwove that it is a dynamic organization capable 
of giving potential readers what they want to 
see. In many cases it will have to j^ersuade those 
who casually glance thrcmgh that it is what they 
have been looking for in a magazine. 
What is re<|uired is a totally new aj^proach to a 
College magazuie. It cannot be a \irtual rejirint 
of whatever it was that set the style for magazines 
such as the Harxard "Lampoon, the Yale "l\ec- 
ord", the Princeton "Tiger" and the Coit: itself 
in the wild days of the twenties-it must rise a- 
bove the gross spoof and the crude characature. 
Basically it must be something in itself that has 
never been before. 

A salute, yes-we need the Cow. We will have 
no use, however, for a magazine with no identity. 


To The Class of 1959 

Cynicism was prevalent during the recent visits 
of Assistant Alumni Secretary Bill Dickerson to 
the fraternities to exi^lain the imijortance of the 
Alumni Fund and the Society of Alumni. 

During his visits, the seniors listened attentively 
to Mr. Dickerson's remarks— did they take them 
to heart? There was a sizeable minority who did 
not. This minority listened, yes, but with smiles 
which belied any real interest in the subject. 
It is well known that Williams alumni take great 
pride in having gone to Williams. However, it is 
]oainfully evident that the smiling minority does 
not have such jjride. 

It is not expected that recent graduates will be 
able to give a great deal to the fund. The con- 
tributions of the younger alumni are sought be- 
cause they show a realization that Williams of- 
fers much beside academic education. 



While he was taking attendauci' the other day, 
a |5rofessor wrvly observed, "Taking attendance 
makes me feel as if 1 were dealing with mature 
and res))onsible students." 

One of the aims of the liberal arts education is 
to produce mature and responsible citizens. Yet 
the administration increasingly accepts the stu- 
dent's resijonsibilities for him. 
It is painfully evident that the student body has 
forced this |5aternal attitude on the college. The 
undergraduates eontiiuiallv foist off the finan- 
cial responsibilities for student affairs on the 
administration, and Williams Students have 
chronically returned library hooks late. 
But |3erhaps the adiniiiistratiou is also at fault. 
If Williams is to produce die responsible citizen 
of tomorrow, the administration must be more 
hesitant about aece|5ting obligations which the 
student must aeeejit for himself, chiefly die res- 
ponsibilitv of getting the most out of his educa-

A few days ago, two WilUiuns 
students were refused by a Hiir- 
vard graduate school. This in itl 
self Is not unusual; what Is extra- 
ordinary is that both students are 
Phi Betes, ranking members of im- 
portant College organizations, and 
recipients of large College grants. 

When students such as tli'se 
have been turned down by any in-

the time has come to start a caie-

of the lacrosse team will appear In 
uniform to assist the coach in dem- 
onstrating some of the essential 
skills of the game. The meeting 
will also include two films, one of 
which is of the John Hopkins — 
Maryland game, an outstanding 
contest of the 1958 season, 

McHenry plans to hold these fo- 
rums regularly. He hopes to create 
an interest in lacrosse which will 
render the game more popular not 
only at Williams but throughout 
New England. "The main reason 
why the popularity of lacrosse has 
been limited to certain areas of 
the country is due to the fact that 
most people know so little about 
it," he stated. McHenry hopes to 
remedy this unfamiliarity with the 
game at Williams.

Pool, this weekend 

Ide will compete for the last 
time as a Williams swimmer this 
weekend in the 50 and 100 yd. 
freestyle events in the Easterns. 
After losing his New England 
sprint crowns to Dick Beauvais of 
Connecticut and Ed Nicholson of 
Brown, Ide will be a slight under- 
dog in these events. However his 
season's bests of 23.1 in the 50 and 
52.3 in the 100 are both better than 
either has recorded. Ide will also 
meet stiff competition from Roger 
Anderson of Yale, 100 freestyle ti- 
tle defender, and Harvard's Dick 

Muir Lauds Captain 
Coach Robert Muir saluted Ide's 
inspirational leadership of the 
mermen to their fourteenth New 
England championship in eighteen 
years and a 7-1-1 overall record. 
"No coach has ever had a more 
sincere captain or finer sports- 
man," Muir said. 

Robinson In Breast Stroke 
Buck Robinson, New England 
breast stroke champion, will be en- 
tered in the 100 and 200 yd. breast 
stroke this weekend. Robinson 
holds the New England 200 yd. 
breast stroke record of 2:29.1 and 
has been touted as a possible All- 
American. Last week he set the 
M. I. T. Alumni Pool breast stroke 
mark with a 2:30.7 clocking. Rob- 
inson's chief competition will 
come from Yale's Joe Koletsky, de- 
fending 200 titlist, Jim Stanley of 
Harvard, last year's 100 breast 
winner, and Dave Stiller of Cornell. 
EUs Favored 
Yale's swimmers are favored to 
capture a major share of the ti-

The comments on the Williams 
campus regarding Jim Ostendarp's 
appointment as head football 
coach at Amherst have ranged 
from, "Good for Osty," to "Poor 
Williams." I asked line coach 
Frank Navarro how the coaching 
staff felt about it and he said, "No 
matter who is coaching down at 
Amherst, I wouldn't be able to get 
any sleep the night before the 
Amherst game." Amherst is vei-y 
fortunate to get as fine a coach 
as Osty, and it'll mean that they'll 
be coming up with some fine fu- 
ture teams, but that'll be nothing 
new to Williams. Any effort to be- 
little the Williams coaching staff 
in the light of Osty's appointment 
is uncalled for. Coaches Watters 
DeLisser, Navarro, and Co. will 
field a team next year led by Cap- 
tain Bob Stegeman that will give 
every team on the schedule a 
rough time no matter who their 
coaches may be. 

Winter Sports 
A couple of final notes on the 
basketball season; Eph captain 
Pete Willmott and high scoring 
center Jeff Morton will play on a 
New England All Star team again- 
st an All Star team from the grea- 
ter Boston area on March 15th at 
Brandeis University. The game is 
sponsored by the Basketball Hall 
of Fame in Springfield. Congrat- 
ulations to the freshman basket- 
ball team. It's been a long time 
since the scoreboard has shown 
100 points for a Williams team. 

Bob Muir's forces have done it 
again. With this year's New Eng- 
land and Little Three swimming 
titles and nineteen out of a poss- 
ible 22 Little Three titles. The last 
time Williams lost the Little Three 
was 1942. 

New Skiing Award 
A new award will be given out at 
this year's Purple Key Banquet. 
It is called the "Ralph J. Town- 
send Award" and is to be presented 
annually to the outstanding mem- 
ber of the Williams ski team. It 
was donated by members of past 
Williams ski teams to support and 
recognize the work of Coach Town- 

Every athletic team and every 
team member deserves credit for 
a fine winter season. Also, the fol- 
lowing should be singled out for 
individual credit; Bob Hatcher and 
Kuhrt Wieneke, New England 
wrestling champs; Buck Robinson 
and Neil Devaney, who, after great 
showings as sophomores, have been 
elected captains of next year's 
swimming team; Greg Tobin, who 
finished the season as the number 
4 squash player at Princeton; and 
to Jeff Morton, who set a new 
school scoring record and ended 
up as the top scorer in Western 
Mass. with a 16.8 points per game

Team Says Hockey Roof Needed 

By Al Lapey 

"Without a cover for the hockey 
rink I feel we slwuld drop out of 
intercollegiate competition." "Fac- 
ulty salaries can wait, the rink co- 
ver cannot. Wait any longer and 
we will end up with no coach, no 
player.s, no schedule, no nothing." 
"With hockey popularity reaching 
new heights in the East, approach- 
ing that of basketball, Williams 
must strive to maintain her athle- 
tic integrity. Without a cover, this 
is impossible." Those comments re- 
present a cross-section of student 
sentiment on the rink roof .situa- 

Williams hockey players were 
asked whether they thought .school 
funds should be used to increase 
the endowment, better faculty sal- 
aries, or improve our athletic fa- 
cilities, namely to build a hockey 
roof. Freshman Frank Ward said, 
"A cover will encourage good hoc- 
key players to come to Williams. 
It will be more enjoyable for play- 
ers and fans alike," 

Piper Perturbed 

Captain Tom Piper was perturb- 
ed that "Williams will not lake 
money aimed at a definite pro.)ect. 
Many alumni, being particularly 
interested in athletics, will not give 
to a general fund because they

don't know where their money is 
going." Looking a little deeper in- 
to the question. Piper brought out 
that "in academics you are alone 
with a book, the individual." 

"Athletics, on the other hand, 
teaches you to work together with 
other people, as a team. Looking 
back on my four years, I question 
whether book knowledge is that 
important for the person going out 
into our culture. Athletics has a 
great deal to offer and I don't 
think it's stressed enough here." 

Larry Hawkins questioned how a 
team could "get up" for a game not 
knowing if there would be ice to 
play on until an hour before game 
tim:'. "Out of four days preceeding 
thj Amherst game, only two prac- 
tices were held, and these late at 
n;gnt on soft snowy ice. Still we 
iri' expected to be up and ready 
for the game. How?" 

Present Schedule Endangered 

On the .subject of faculty sal- 
aries, Mike Grant asserted, "I have 
the feeling that teachers are the 
type that will teach whether they 
get a few dollars raise or not out 
of love for their profession. This 
especially holds true at Williams.

One student pointed out that a 
study at Brandeis showed that as 
the quality of their athletics im- 
proved, so did their academic stan- 
dards. "Besides this," he continued, 
"improved hockey would have a 
secondary effect on the alumni. 
This might stimulate some to give 
more to the school."

Rev. Maguire Speaks 
On Church Transition 

"Toward a self-critical Church" 
was the topic of a discussion led by 
Reverend John D. Maguire of Yale 
Divinity School Sunday night. 

"There must be a re-engagement 
of a self-critical church with the 
world" concluded Mr. Maguire af- 
ter having characterized two pre- 
vious stages of the church. 

Social Gospel 

In the late 18O0's, the social gos- 
pel was the prevalent belief. This 
"optimistic and superficial view 
saw the church embracing the 
world in the name of Christ." 

Recently, church slogans such as 
"A million more for '54" have led 
to an Introspective church which 
seeks to know its own meaning.

'Cow^ Dispute In CCF; 
Decision By Weekend 

In the midst of the perennial 
Yale domination of the Eastern 
Swimming Championships, Chip 
Ide and Buck Robin.son of Williams 
took fourth and fifth in the finals 
of the 10 yd. freestyle and 200 yd. , 
breast stroke at New Haven, Conn, j 

Jones Ahead 

Robinson was meeting Bill Jones 
of Amherst for the third time this i 
season, his closest competitor in 
the breast stroke in New England 
circles. Qualifying ahead of Jones 
with a 2:30.8 in the 200 yd. event, 
Robin.son was then beaten in the 
six man final event and placed fif- 
th with 2:31.0. ahead of Doug Mc- 
Cartney of Harvard and behind 
Jones who swam the distance in 
2:30.8. Jones qualified fifth with 

Chip Ide, 1958-59 captain, miss- 
ed qualifying in the 50 yd. free- 
style by four-tenths of a second 
by qualifying fourth in the 100 yd. 
freestyle with 52.5. He finished the 
final event fourth also but with a 
time of 52.2. bettering his best time 
this season. 

Ide Beats Nicholson 

In Robin.son's final lical, Jim 
Stanley broke the Eastern record of 
2:27.0 he had set in the prelimi- 
nary race with a winning time of 
2:24.9. Second to qualify and sec- 
ond in tlie final was Yale's Joe Ko- 
lelsky. last year's champion. He 
swam the distance in 2:26.1. 

Chip Ide followed Harvard's Ri-

Phi Betes To Publish 
A Literary Magazine 

In order that Williams will have 
an outlet for undergraduate litera- 
ry talents, the Phi Beta Kappa So- 
ciety will publish a literary maga- 
zine this spring. 

The magazine will be modeled 
along the lines of the National Phi 
Beta Kappa Society's The Ameri- 
can Scholar, and will contain ar- 
ticles of intellectual and academic 
interest," stated Al Donovan '59, 
one of the magazine's editorial 
board. Donovan, with fellow board 
members George Aid '60, Mack 
Hassler '59, Bob Gould '59, Ed 
Brash '60, and Heni-y Cohen '60, 
is seeking essays and papers writ- 
ten for academic courses. 
Academic Material 

Members of the board are agreed 
that academic material is apt to 
be better written and have a wider 
appeal than creative prose or po- 
etry. "Students usually put their 
best efforts into papers submitted 
for grades, and their work is of 
interest to fellow students who 
have studied similar .subjects," said 
Donovan. The board has asked pro- 
fessors to recommend oustanding 
papers written for their courses, 
but It will also consider material 
submitted independently by stu- 

Since the magazine will have no 
advertising, the editorial board ex- 
pects a net loss of fifty to one 
hundred dollars per issue. The 
board hopes to receive some fi- 
nancial aid from the College or the 
CCF, but if such aid is not avail- 
able, the magazine will be mimeo- 

t an intense anah'tieal treatment 

sor of political science |oliu (!. 

delivered in the Thompson Bi- 

hich oxcrflowed into the aisles, 
lasic tenets of his ]-)hilos(iphv of 
education: education is an institu- 
tion for the few as opposed to the 
many: education should be con- 
sidered in its political context: and 
education should emphasize the 
importance of basic concepts which 
relate to all courses, as opposed to 
a system of education which 
treats man as "an explaining- 
knowledge-gathering animal." 

Rensenbrink maintained that 
the educational philosophy which 
could be called liberalism, as epito- 
mized by Robert M. Hutchins, for- 
mer chancellor of the University of 
Chicago, fell down on the consider- 
ation of the few and the many. The 
liberal philosophy holds that the 
lot of mankind can be improved 
by education and that the entire 
populace is capable of enjoying 
this improvement. Ren.senbrink 
called this "boundless idealism." 
He further maintained that this 
philosophy led to the admittance 
of "culturally compulsive barba- 
rians" to our schools of higher ed- 

Forced to Doctrinaire Position 

It was further maintained that 
the liberal philosophy was forced 
to assume a doctrinaire position 
because of the "collapse of distinc- 
tion between theoi-y and practice." 
That is, education was not being 
considered in its political context 
in America — that political con- 
text being a basically pluralistic 
society. Rensenbrink believes that 
one of the functions of a liberal, 
higher education Is the preserva- 
tion of the regime. 

The lecture was concluded with 
a diatribe on the autonomist doc- 
trine of education, which turns out 
students who evince humaneness 
instead of generosity, personality 
instead of character, and know- 
ledge instead of rationality.

gations of the boards' pretensions. 
Action on the CCF recommenda- 
tion will be taken before the end 
of the week. 

Peter Berkeley '60, ex co-business 
manager of the Cow, presented the 
history of the conflict, stating that 
former editor Tony Distler '59 had 
given Cohen permission to start a 
new Cow, and that he had also re- 
commended to Burghardt that a 
co-editorship be worked out with 

Burghardt stated that all at- 
tempts at compromise had failed: 
"It is obvious that Cohen doesn't 
want our iBurghardt's Board's) 
help in particular . . . We have the 
seniority, tire experience working 
on the Cow which no one else has." 

Cohen admitted the basic con- 
flict: "I could not see another eight 
people on our board. We have five 
people. We have an organization, 
and we get things done. We have 
advertising, we are ahead of last 
year. We need more, and we need 
a little more copy. This tends to 
seem like a personality clash. 
There's no room for that." 

In a sentiment vote, the CC felt 
unanimou.sly that there was a need 
for a college humor magazine. Gal-

In an effort to obtain new ideas 
for the coming year, the 1959 Ca- 
reer Weekend Committee, headed 
by Sandy Smith '60. has begun 
evaluating the results of a ques- 
tionnaire sent to all alumni who 
participated in this year's pro- 
gram. The student committee is 
working jointly with an alumni 
committee, under the supervision 
of Manlon Copeland, who coor- 
dinates the efforts of the two 


No definite plans have been for- 
mulated yet. but Chairman Smith 
stated he hopes to attain greater 
informality in the panels, in order 
to stimulate more questions from 
students. "One possibility," he 
said, "would be to have a smoker 
or similar affair at which students 
and alumni could gel together 
freely," Smith aKso propo.sed that 
panelists might design their 
speeclies to leave certain questions 
in tlie air to draw more student 


The committee will try to attract 
more of the outstanding Williams 
alumni, with emphasis on the 
younger graduates. However, the 
new program will generally follow 
this year's format. The presenta- 
tion of certain panels at two dif- 
ferent times, whicli was introduced 
by the 1958 committee, will be re- 
peated next year. A questionnaire 
will again be presented to the stu- 
dent body to determine the choice 
of occupations to be discussed in 
the panels. 

This year there was only an 80% 
return on the student question- 
naire. The committee hopes to find 
some way to raise this percentage, 
since the choice of panels should 
be based on the preference of all 
the students. The 20V of the stu- 
dent body not heard from might 
have had an effect on the final 
choice of occupations. 

Language Labs Found To Increase 
Oral Comprehension And Motivation 

"LPL," as the Language Practice 
Laboratory in Chapin Hall's cellar 
is affectionately known by its de- 
votees, is used twice a week in half- 
hour periods by all students tak- 
ing spoken foreign language cour- 

Instituted in the fall of 1957 and 
organized originally by Professor 
Elliot M. Grant, chairman of the 
Romance Language department, 
the magnetic recording equipment 
cost $18,000. Commenting on the 
program, Grant, who is presently 
on leave, emphasized last spring 
that the success of the program 
lies in its diligent by students. 

Participation Improves 

Students and faculty members 
interviewed recently indicated that 
students today are realizing the 
full possibilities of the labs for 
improving their speaking ability 
in the course. Eventually, they 
hope, the labs can be entirely vol- 

Some teachers note that there Is 
considerable weekly preparation 
involved in their part of LPL, but 
they feel that increased Individual 
oral practice which does not take 
up valuable class time is a great 


. . . teacher-student interest is 
essential . . . 


Students receive a master re- 
corded disc and a blank disk on 
which to record their answers to 
questions asked on the master. 
Sentence building or "repeat after 
me" exercises are used in addition 
to dictation exercises and summa- 
ries of course readings.

One of the pro\ crhs attributed to Conln-

"Head ten-thousand books anil tra\i'l ti'n-thon-

make C'onlueiiis almost nnixcrsalK' applicable 
we should probabK' throw in the preri'(|uisite ol 
meetiiiif ten-lhonsand people. With this adili- 
tion we haxc ;i sensible basic |)attern for in-

manifest in cvervbodv. How little of lite is s))ent

With apologies to a certain imderrated .Am-

.\iiother closely related abuse to the common

waste is tiilK' as ob\ions without them. .V det^ice

si\'e time spent in diversion are also all abusps. 

i<\'w piiblich' will sa\' that their ijoal in life 
is to become wise. We all, however, will ha\e to 
admit to oiirseKcs that we would like to become 
critical men. The platitude-like Confucanism still

To The Editors: 

Tlie article in tlie Marcli 13 is- 
sue of the RECOKU, is. without 
doubt, unfortunate and gives an in- 
correct impression of tlie senti- 
ments of the Williams hockey 
team. That this would be the case 
was realized previous to its publi- 
cation, and it was then requested 
that it not be printed; this request 
was not lionored b.v the RECORD, 
but this constitutes history, and 
the present in much more Import- 
ant. Hence, I wish merely to cor- 
rect some of the statements pre- 
sented in the article. 

The inference that education is 
unimportant is far from the beliefs 
of any undergraduates, including 
the hockey team. Education is def- 
initely the prime purpose in Wil- 
liams and in our beinu here. That 

athletics and other extra-cun^ 
lar activities contribute to chiuac" 
ler formation is also quite eviecnt" 
they are therefore beneficial i.i the 
individual, though definitely .sec- 
ondary to education. 

Secondly, the Treasurer's R. po,-; 
clearly indicates that gifts ainn d at 
specific projects are not In uc(j 
down, and that a fair numb. : of 
them are donated each year, i am 
<iuile sure that there are no ui ler- 
Kraduates — certainly theri 
none on the hockey team — 
claim to be better versed in l)i 
nancial problems of the en 
than are the men in the en 
administration; and we greall- 
preciate the wisdom of these 
Certainly we are anxious to h; 
liockey cover, but we are also ;i 
of the importance of mainla

trio. "What is your name, insolence?" asked Altos, 
advancing on him.

of Schaefer he carried. "I?rave lad!" vociferated

Tlie Cla.s.s of 19G2 is in the proc- 
ess of buildinR a solid record of 
compelent participation in ■Wil- 
liams extracurricular activities. 

Alec Saundoi's, pie.sident of tlie 
A.M.T., note.s that four frt'shmen 
have already becoini,' member.s of 
Cap and Bell.s. Besides this unusual 
event, he olwerves, two of tliem 
have even been elected to the board 
of Cap and Bells. Simnders fur- 
ther con:iinenls, "The fieslimen 
liavc done a better .job than the 
last two cla.sses. They are vi'rsalili' 
and talented, easier, and a little 
artistic." But rcaclions to the 
freslimen on the part of A.M.T. of- 
ficers are somewhat mixed. Peter 

Culman, last year's A.M.T. presi- 
dent criticizes their "laclc of im- 
agination and creativity," allhouKh 
their "energy" and "enthusiasm" 
impresses him. 

Ileli|,'-ious Activities 

The Class of '62 has about av- 
erage participation in campus re- 
ligious organizations. Toby Smitli 
and Jerry Rardin, respectively 
president of the Newman Club and 
Lhe former Williams College Chap- 
'1 prj.iicient, concur that "tlie 
.■■rishmen are an active and iii- 
leri'sted group," 

The Saint John's Student 'Vestry 
is, liowevir, an exception; liere, 
iresliman functions are "negligi- 
ble." according to Vestry president 
Norm Cram, The reason for this 
fact, explains Cram, is simply that 
no administrative positions are 
i)l)en to freshmen. 

Mass Media 

The freshmen are well-repre- 
sL'Uled in the 'Williams mass media. 
In W.M,S,, tliey compose about 
lialf the total membersliip, Adam 
McLane, the Personnel Director, 
sl;U,s, "The station more or less 
depends on tliem to keep going, 
• le class has produced few out- 
■tanding radiomen, but more peo- 
iJle skilled in technical areas than 
usual " 

The freshman effort on the 
GULIELMENSIAN, according to 
Editor-in-Chief John Byers, has 
"reached a new peak." Byers fur- 
ther comments, "They alone work- 
ed on the freshman section this 

year, doing it practically indepen- 
dently witli little guidance from 
their I uppercla.ssman) editor, 
'I'lieir art woi-k, wa.s very good. All 
in all, I would .say that the fresli- 
men added to last year's fine prod- 

Concerning freshman perform- 
ance on the RECORD, Editor Ted 
Castle noted that, though few 
Frosli volunteered in the fall, many 
responded to tlie second .semester 
Competition. "Performance has 
b:en very good, although we 
haven't had much time to tell a- 
bout the new members. Our 
iien leai-n very quickly, sliowing a 
good deal of imagination and ini- 

Freshman Sports 

Over and over again tlie reaction 
to the freshman teams from their 
coaches has been "great ability, 
good, and fine poten- 
tial for next year," 

Fewer men have gone out for 
the teams than in proceeding 
years, but quality has made up for 
the lack of quantity. In the fall the 
football squad chalked up four vic- 
tories while losing only once, when 
most of the stars were injured. As 
Captain Mike Hopewell says, "a 
lot of us are going to play first or 
second string varsity next year," 
Likewise the .soccer contingent was 
small, but produced an unusually 
large number of able players. 
Coach Hank Plynt predicts that 
■although the team did not realize 

its full potential, it will contribute 
much more to Williams soccer than 
the average freshman .squad," 
Bright Future 

Phil Wirth, ^62 President, says 
that things look very good, witli 
frosh teams having won over i'i of 
their contests, ■'Prospects for the 
spring are excellent," he drawled. 

Most of those who can get out 
for sports do so. Some of the ath- 
letes may take a .sea.son off and 
not go out for a team they could 
make of the need for re- 
laxation, but homework .seldom in- 
terferes too seriously with sports 
time, because the interested parti- 
cipant makes time to study. Wrest- 
ling coach Pete DeLisser said he 
was most impressed by his team's 
desire to work hard. With three or 
four excellent wrestlers and fair 
potential, the team came through 
the sea,son undefeated by working 
hard at practices. 

Swimming Very Strong 

Coach Bob Muir considered his 
swimming team "one of the best 
since I've been here". Undefeated, 
the mermen showed great promise 
and "are coming in at exactly the 
right time", with such men as Chip 
Ide graduating in June. Members 
of the '62 team are already talking 
of an undefeated varsity next year. 

In essence, then, fewer members 
of '62 participate in sports than in 
recent, but those who do 
take part do .so with much enthu- 
siasm and more ability than usual.

"The biggest challenge 
a man has to lace is himself" 

"Men and are alike in one respect," says 
Gci-ald A. Parson.s, SO-.vear-old marketinir ami i)er- 
Roiiiiel development specialist. "Their success de- 
pends to a great extent on how well they resiioiid to 
challenge. And I've found that the bitr.ucst challenge 
a man has to face on his job is not the comiietition of 
others — but the far more inipoi-tant one of develop- 
ing himself to his fullest captibilitie.s. 

"During my four year.s with General Electric, 
I've had plenty of opportunity for self-development. 
ChallenKing training as.signments at five dill'erent 
location.s within the company have given me a 
broader under.standing of my career area. In my 
present job I have the benefit of working with ex- 
perts, both in establishing long-range goal.s and in 
heliiing to achieve them. I've found that working 
toward future potential is vital in the development 
of successful — and successful men." 

Young men such as Gerry Parsons are important 
to the future of companies like General Electric and 
to the growth of America's dynamic, competitive- 
enterprise economy. Our nation's progress will de- 
pend more and more upon those forward-looking 
individuals who continue to develop to their fullest 
capabilities during their lifetime. 

That is why General Electric provides a climate 
for individual progress — with opportunity for in- 
creasing knowledge and skills — for all of its em- 
l)loyees, including ;50,()(H) college graduates. For it 
is only as individuals meet the challenge of self- 
development that there continues to be progress for 
a business, an industry, or a nation.

Dean Cole To Participate In Protestant Conference On The Subject Of Birth Control 

by David Brown 

William G. Cole, Dean of Fresh- 
men, will arrive in London on April 
12, to participate in a conference 
called by the World Council of 
Churches to discuss the imminent 
problem of "world population ex- 
plosion". He will be one of seven- 
teen delegates, including one other 
American, a Lutheran professor at 
Concordia Theological Seminary. 
The delegates' selection has been 
based upon a geographical and de- 

nominational representation. The 
other delegates are divided equally 
among Europe, Asia and Africa. 
The three day session will be at 
Manchester College of Oxford Uni- 

Council Expresses Alarm 

The Council is alarmed. Dean 
Cole said, at the "decrease In the 
death rate with no corresponding 
decrease in the birth rate. This is 
especially serious in underdevel- 
oped countries, where economic 

problems are beginning to devel- 
ope." Further, the world popula- 
tion is doubling every half-century. 
"Within two hundred years, ac- 
cording to an estimate, the space 
problem will be so acute that there 
will be only one square yard per 

Birth Control 
The Protestant Churches have 
become concerned about the situ- 
ation and with birth control as a 
means of combating it. In contrast 
to their numerous position, the 

Roman Catholic Church has clear- 
ly stated its opposition to any form 
of birth control other than "self- 
oontrol," Dean Cole continued: 
"the Protestants, however, have 
been clouded on the subject." Some 
have spoken out, such as the An- 
glican Church at the Lambeth 
Conference of last summer; but 
most have not declared themselves. 
Therefore, the purposes of this 
conclave is "to prepare a state- 
ment on this subject to be submit- 
ted to the general conference of

days in London as a period of re- 
laxation, before returning to WiU 
liams. While there, he hopes to

Swimming . . . 

by Capt. "Chip" Ide 

mis year's swimming team was 
ijolstered by the addition of several 
,iauncli sophomores who together 
u lUi a few persistent old seniors, 
made up a very 
MTsatile team. 
I'robably tlie 
riiief reason for 
,,iir success was 

he addition of 

he Army meet 

o our schedule. 
\lUiough this 
: licet was our 

inly loss, (44- 

iji, the team started the post- 

( 'liristmas barrage of meets in bet- 

,1 condition than usual. 
In Addition to the consistently 
^standing performances of Buck 
Kobinson, NeilDevaney, Henry Ta- 
in. Don Lum and Bob Reeves, 

;)i'cial mention should be made of 
1 )ave Coughlin, Mike Dively, Terry 
\llcn. The top performances in 

he New Englands of all these men 

, another credit to the coaching of 
iiob Muir with the conditioning of

Winter Relay . . . 

by Co-capt. George Sudduth 

Have you ever competed In ath- 
letics before 15,000 fans? Probably 
not unless you are a member of the 
relatively unknown (on campus) 
winter relay 
learn. On six 
Saturday nights 
during the past 
winter. Coach 
Tony Plansky 
and his small 
squad had the 
privilege of par- 
ticipating in the 
indoor track 

This year's mile relay composed 
of four seniors — ■ Mack Hassler, 


at the foot of Spring St. 

Tony Harwood, Bill Moomaw and 
George Suddulh — compiled a 
creditable record. After winning 
the Boston YMCA relay event the 
team ran medal earning perform- 
ances in the BAA and New York 
K of C meets. Its fastest non-win- 
ning time was 3:25.4. The 
440 yard leg was recorded by an- 
chorman Sudduth in 49.4 .seconds. 
Yet, win or lose, the thrill of the 
indoor track .season was theirs as 
they competed along side Ron De- 
lany, John Thomas, Don Bragg, 
Charlie Jenkins and company. 

Skiing . . . 

by Capt. Jeff Fisher 

The difficulty that this 
year's ski team had to overcome 
was inexperience. Only three skiers 
had previously competed in col- 
lege meets. The four sophomores — 
Coleman, Phillips, Ronendaal, and 
Tyler — gained the confidence 
they needed in time for the Wil- 
liams and Middlebury Carnivals. 

The team was weakest in jump- 
ing mainly because there are no 
adequate hills in this area on 
which to practice. We were .strong- 
est in and slalom, 
and next year's chances in these 
events look pretty good. 

Prank Morse and Spike Kellog 
from the freshman squad will give 
the team some needed depth. 


by Co-capt. Chris Schacfer 

The record of the 1959 varsity 
squash team was good; but the 
spirit of the team was great. Win- 
ning five and losing six, the squad 
came less than seven points away 
from the possibility of an 8-3 sea- 
son. These points were the crucial, 
five-game, overtime points which 
eked out 5-4 wins for Toronto, 
Princeton, and Amherst.

Little Three Championship 

Basketball . . . 

by Capt. Pete Willmott 

Generally things went well for 
the basketball team this year. Our 
record of 15-9 is the best since the 
1954-55 season. The season was 
highlighted by victories over Har- 
vard, U. Mass., Springfield and 
Amherst. We reached the finals 
of the Springfield Christmas Tour- 
were honored by 
the NCAA tour- 
nament bid. 

I would say 
that the four 
straight losses 
at the end of 
the season were 
due to our in- 
ability to mus- 
ter a balanced scoring punch — 
our strong point earlier in the 
year — and a failure to carry out 
our defensive assignments tho- 

Jeff Morton played his third 
straight year of outstanding ball. 
For the first time he received con- 
sistent rebounding aid from Hede- 
man and sophs Weaver. Montgom- 
ery and Guzzetti. George Boynton 
had an exceptionally fine year and 
his ability to spell Bob Parker gave 
us added strength in the backcourt. 

Next year promises to be a good 
one as the returning lettermen will 
be joined by some talented fresh-

Frosh Equal 1949 
Undefeated Mermen 

The Class of 1962 contributed 
the first undefeated freshman 
swimming team since 1949 as they 
swept through six meets and three 
records. In addition to a clean rec- 
ord the freshman captured the 
Little Three title and the New Eng- 
land Freshman freestyle relay 

Led by co-captains John Haslett 
and Robin Durham the Ephs nip- 
ped Deerfield and came from be- 
hind to take Hotchkiss 42-38. Top 
times for the season were Has- 
lett's 53.1 in the 100 against Deer- 
field, the freestyle relay's time of 
1:34,2 in the 200 and 3:35.4 in the 
400 yd. event.

son Williams rolled over Wesleyan

Wrestling . . . 

by Capt. Kurt Wienelte 

The wrestling team enjoyed a 
fine .season, due in part to the four 
men who were almost certain win- 
ners every week. But a large mea- 
sure of the 
team's success 
must be attri- 
buted to some 
members of the 
team who nev- 
er got the head- 
lines, namely. 
Bill Penny, Fred 
Noland, Denny 
Mitchell, and 
Harry Bowdoin.

Winter Season ^62 

Freshman Basketball rolled up a 10-4 recoid to share the spot- 
lif^lit with swinimiiifr this winter. Capt. Boh Nhihland led the team 

scoring for the season with a 23.2 

The backcourt duo of Jay Johns- 
ton and Dave Ritchie averaged 15 
points apiece and coupled with 6-7 
center, Kirby Allen formed a high 
scoring trio. 


Aided by Bill Beadie's eleven 
goals during the season. Coach 
Bill Mccormick's freshman racked 
up an impressive 7-1-1 record and 
a decisive win over Amherst, 7-1. 

Co-captain Pete Marlow was 
second to Beadie with seven goals. 
Goalie Ham Brown compiled a 1.9 
goal per game average in the nets 
while John Roe added to the scor- 
ing attack with six goals and five 

The coach and 

the captain could always count on 
these men for inspired perform- 
ances, against what I consider the 
best competition in the league, 
such as Burger, Reuter, and Di- 
Muccio from Springfield; Nagel 
and Dyer from Wesleyan; Williams 
and Bixler from Amherst. 

Bill Penny, in particular, wrest- 
led the best man on the opposing 
team week after week, yet he never 
excused his losses, never alibied. 
His competitive attitude inspired 
some of his more experienced 
team-mates. We won the Little 
Three mainly on the performances 
of these men, not by the feats of 
the favorites who were expected to 
win, did win, and consequently got 
the headlines. The captain's job 
is considerably easier when he can 
depend on good men.

Freshman wrestling copped a 
Little Three Championship and an 
undefeated season this winter led 
by Captain Mike Brimmer. Pulling 
out a dramatic 16-16 tie with a 
favored Amherst team, the Ephs 
went on to down a strong Kent 
team, 16-13. Forming the main- 
stays of the team were Brimmer, 
Gripekoven, Oehrle, Crosby and 


With only three experienced 
players, Mike Keating, Bill Hyland, 
and Fred Wentz, the freshman 
squash team did a creditable job 
compiling a 3-5 record. Captain 
John Botts. playing at number 
three was a key man in many of 
the matches. 

Skiing, Track 

The Freshman Ski team, al- 
though primarily a pre-varsity 
training program found competi- 
tion against Kimbal Union, Ver- 
mont Academy, and Dartmouth 
this winter. Spike Kellog and 
Frank Morse did most of the plac- 
ing for W.ill'ams. 

The first attempt at a freshman 
winter relay team sent Coach 
Plansky and the Ephs to competi- 
tion in the Boston YMCA meet, 
the Melrose Games, the Boston AA 
meet, and the New York K of C 
games. The frosh ran in the 3:50 
time for the mile relay. 

Hockey . . . 

by Toby Smith 

Varsity Hockey closed out the 
1959 season with an 8-10-1 record 
marred by bad weather and stiff 
competition. The biggest games of 
the season from 
a Williams 

standpoint were 
the three a- 
gainst Amherst. 
The Ephs after 
beating Am- 
herst In Rye, 
N. Y., in Decem- 
ber dropped the 
next two, 4-3, 

Fi'om a Hockey point of view two 
of tile best games this season were 
R.P.I, and Army. Heavily favored 
R.P.I, came to Williamstown De- 
cember 17 with an all-american 
center but a weak goalie. It wasn't 
until the third period that the en- 
gineers wrapped it up. 

Poet William Smith Discusses Poetry, Creative Writing

('ouncil Bids Cohen 

In an informal meeting Thurs- 
luy afternoon, the College Coun- 
■;1 decided unanimously to accept 
' he decision of the CCP in desig- 
;iating Steven Cohen '62 as editor 
]1 the Purple Cow. 

The bid was made on the basis 
,il a precis of the arguments of 
Doth contenders for the post which 
was written by CCP chairman Ri- 
chard Gallop '60 after Wednesday 
night's hearing on the controversy, 
I'lie CCF also recommended the 
appointment of a faculty adviser 
for the Cow. 

He claimed over $700 in actual 
atl\ertising revenue against a max- 
imum estimated of $800 
for the publication of tlieir pro- 
posed May 2 issue. 

The opposition group, headed by 
John Burghardt '61, questioned the 
quality and quantity of the ma- 
terial for the upcoming issue, and 
accused the Cohen group of being 
"inefficient and overly optimistic" 
m their business principles and 

Burghardt claimed a basic struc- 
ture of himself as editor-in-chief, 
Cohen as literary editor, and Ho- 
ward Tygrett '61 and Toby Krat- 
ovil '62 as business managers 
would be the most effective and 
.lust composition of a new board, 

Cohen favored "a circular board", 
arguing that "petty bureacracy will 
not work," He felt his group, as 
successful and enthusiastic de fac- 
to publishers of the Purple Cow, 
sliould be given controlling interest 
111 the publication. 

The public controversy began at 
Monday's CC meeting, after a 
HECORD article depicting Cohen 
a.s Cow editor had ended "even tlie 
formality of co-editorship", which 
liurghardt claimed the old Cow 
board had sanctioned. 

Frosh-Soph Fete 
Heralds Vacation 

Tonight from 8 to 12 the Rath- 
skeller will be the .scene of this 
year's second " Smash." 

The two class councils have ap- 
pointed a committee headed by 
Charlie Merrill '62 and Dave 
Brown '61 to handle all the ar- 
rangements. The amount of beer 
has been increa.sed to ten kegs to 
further insure a successful even- 

Entertainment will consist of a 
jazz tiio from the class of '62 and 
at least two pianists from the class 
of '61, Besides the planned enter- 
tainment spontaneous group sing- 
ing can be counted on. The Chug- 
ging Contests in which the class 
)f '62 will try to retain po,ssession 
,)f the honors they won last fall, 
will 3limax the evenings festivities. 

With the forecast of a large 
Liu'nout the announced price of 
sixty cents has been lowered to 
half a dollar. 

At its Wednesday meeting the 
Treasurers' council decided not to 
take any immediate action on the 
Phillips' Proposal to hire a Cam- 
pus Business Manager and agreed 
to discuss the whole range of fra- 
ternity financial problems with 
the Gi'aduate Committee of Wil- 
liams College Social Units. A mo- 
tion by Phillips to put his plan in- 
to effect was voted down because 
the Council was not yet certain of 
the merits of the plan, 

A substitute motion was put 
forth by Kenneth Kehrer, '61, and 
pa,ssed by the Council: 'Resolved 
that the President of the Treasur- 
ers' Council be empowered to form 
a committee to meet with the Ex- 
ecutive Committee of the Grad- 
uate Committee of Williams Col- 
lege Social Units for the purpose 
of discu,ssing the financial pro- 
blems of the fiaternity system." 
The Graduate Committee is com- 
posed of the Presidents of the 15 
Alumni Corporations that advise 
each house on financial matters. 

This motion was instigated by 
Jerome W. Brush, Jr,, President of 
the Graduate Committee, in a let- 
ter expressing his Committee's in- 
terest in an or.ganization to deal 
with financial matters. 

The original motion had sever- 
al failings in that it presupposed 
that the fraternities would hire a 
Resident Manager and that it did 
not leave sufficient time to de- 
cide what is wanted or needed.

Students Head Home^ Souths ? ? 

VACATION — As dusk settles over the Taconic Trail, a lone Williams student wends his way 
through the purple hills. Back to Mom ... or maybe Southward to Florida ... or possibly even to New 
Haven. . . 

Long Deliberation 

The final decisions involved 
hours of deliberation and were not 
reached until the committee had 
carefully and thoroughly evalua- 
ted the nearly 200 applicants for 
the position, stated Dean William 
Cole, the faculty consultant. In 
making their choice, the commit- 
tee considered the candidate's re- 
commendation by intra-fraternity 
committees, his .scholastic and ex- 
tra-curricular standing, and liis 
apparent maturity and stability. 
The committee was especially an- 
xious to find men who "would take 
the responsibility seriously, not for 
just freshmen orientation week, but 
for all of the year," 

Another criterion tor the selec- 
tions was the probable concern and 
perception each prospective Jun- 
ior Advisor would exhibit in respect 
to problems whicli are Inevitably 
part of every freshman experience. 
Each candidate must also .show an 
evidence of willingness to just 
spend time in his entry should he 
be chosen a Junior Advisor, said 

Advisor Duties 

The Junior Advisors are expect- 
ed to live with the freshmen and 
help them with any problems they 
might have. For the Freshmen, the 
Junior Advisors are their only con- 
tact with fraternities and the up- 

"The present Junior Advisors", 
complimented Dean Cole, "have 
done very well, very well indeed in 
fulfilling all the responsibilities 
and duties assigned to them," 

12 Fraternities Represented 

The Fraternities are well repre- 
sented among the new Junior Ad- 
visors, with twelve of the fifteen 
houses represented. Five houses 
had four Junior Advisors each, 
while one had three and another 
two. The remaining five represent- 
ed had one each.

AMT To Air Realism 
Of Darkness At Noon 

"Starkly real" is the only appro- 
priate description of Arthur Koes- 
tler's "Darkness at Noon". This 
realism will be brouglit to the AMT 
stage Thursday April 9 via the de- 
vices and direction of Bob Ma- 
thews '56, 

According to Mathews the basic 
intellectual problem posed by Ko- 
estler is the eventual outcome to 
the Communist system as a result 
of its failure to account for the 
human soul. Heading the cast of 
thirty, Giles Playfair, Richard 
Willhite, and Professor Thomas 
Griswold all portray the characters 
that construct "the dream that de- 
vours the dreamers". Also in lead- 
ing roles Larry Daloz. Walt Brown. 
Graig Williamson, John Charnow- 
ski. and Pete Culman play various 
types of Communist and Russian 

The starkness of the production 
will be enhanced by only sugges- 
tive, stock sets emphasizing a pur-

New Haven Police Quell Yale Riot; 
Undergraduates Charge ^Brutality' 

.\ Saint Patrick's Day jiarade that j^roNcd too niucli of a 
temjitation for some snowball-throwing Yale students ended Sat- 
urday in a clash between sonic one thousand uncleri^radnatcs and 
elements of the police and fire dc))iutments of New lla\en. The 
riot, broken up with nij^htsticks and firehoses, resulted in ij;cncral 
I probation for the entire under- 
graduate body and the arrest of 24 
students, A similar disturbance the 
previous Tliursday resulted in the 
arrest of sixteen others. 
Police Brutality 
In the wake of the probation or- 
der and statements by the dearus 
and President 'Whitney Griswold 
bemoaning the student action and 
promising disciplinary action came 
charges by students of police bru- 
tality. An editorial in the Yale 
Dally News claimed students and 
faculty members " , , , were beaten, 
clubbed, punched and cursed ..." 
The riot centered around Calhoun 

"General probation" in the words 
of William C, De'Vane. dean of the 
college, "entails immediate dis- 
missal for further public miscon- 
duct of any kind." Arrested stu- 
dents face civil court hearings this 

The Ancient Order of Hiberni- 
ans, .sponsors of the parade, charg- 
ed the Yale students "manifested 
the fact that there is still a great 
deal of underground and latent bi- 
gotry in America."

Business manager 

Fratoniites can save a j^ood deal ot money by 
biiyinjJ all the goods they need through a com- 
mon agent. 

Fraternity financial records must, like those of 
every other organization, be audited by a compe- 
tent financial adviser, in order to facilitate com- 
parisons of the houses" financial records, the 
monthly fissures should be submitted to the au- 
ditor in uniform statistics. House treasurers must 
be as competent as possible as well as being re- 
sjioiisible persons. 

These are the four essential goals behind the 
efforts of the Treasurers' Council toward finan- 
cial stability in the fratornitv system. It is clear 
that problems do exist which can be solved if 
the i^eople involved will agree. John D. Phil- 
lips, whose leport suggests the solution of a 
resident business manager, has fully considered 
how best to aehie\e the goals he feels must be 
achie\ed. Others maintain a central manager to 
lie unnecessarv. Both positions are tenable. 
The Graduate Committee of Williams Fraterni- 
ties is com]50sed of the )5residents of the frater- 
nity graduate corporations whose )5rime concern, 
it must be jMCSupposed, is the efficient operatioii 
of their own chapter house. The Treasurers' 
Council members handle day-to-dav house fi- 

It will often be dificult for members of both 
of these groups to see the over-all view of the 
problems of fraternal finance. It is necessary for 
both, however, to come to agreement: first on 
the goals which thev pursue in develophig pol- 
icies on finance and then, on the means best to 
effect their goals. The epiestion can be shelved 
for another few years but a definite need for ac- 
tion exists now; a lack of decision will indicate 
weakness in the fraternity system. -editors 


With this issue of the RECORD, we send 
half the college off to sweet oblivion on the bea- 
ches of the Carribean Sea to relieve the tensions 
of the bridge table. The other half will go home 
to see Mother and Dad. 

The RECORD has gone through one-(|uar- 
ter of 1959 under our benevolence. We have a 
minute to, what's happened this winter? Well, 
there haven't been any riots that got into print. 
There was one time there when it looked like 
something might hai^pen in the College Council 
hut the whole thing died down. What it was 
they were going to put down a rule that said 
that hereaftei- Mark Hojikins would be charac- 
terized as a psychologist the administiation 

straightened them out )M-etty soon on that, 
though, so there's no danger of anything being 
changed. Not this year anyhow. 

Bob Matthews tried to throw a stone but a 
couple of )-)eople caught it before it broke any 
windows. "You didn't mean to do that, did you. 
Bob?" R. R. R. Brooks, our Dean, hasn't had too 
much trouble on his hands except that too many 
peoi^le are keeping books out of the library. They 
fixed that with a fine. The only thing is, the rate 
at which the fine increases is so complicated 
that the librarians and their assistants can't fi- 
gure out which books are overdue, say they. 

Oh yes-A lot of people were appointed to 
a lot of positions-it's the new student adminis- 
trations with new ideas about everything that's 
been done before that really kee^) the Dean busy. 
He has to keep them informed of historical per- 
spective .so that they won't make the same mis- 
takes that were avoided in the past. 

Then there's us. We did a couple of things. 
We tried creative make-up for the front jiage a

To the editors of the RECORD: 


Following last week's town-gown partv, we 
are now under the thumb ot oppression. I'^mi, ol 
all things, is almost against the law. 

But we are bound to have some. For this 
reason, we are organizing an intercollegiate stag 
jjarty on Saturday, the 4th of April, here in New 
Haven. As you might imagine, we have in the 
makings one of the most stupendous Spring cel- 
ebrations known in the history of Western educa- 
tion. It will be an occasion no one will forget, 
least of all the town of New Haven, 

Come down and drink up a storm!!! We'll 
clear our floors for your sacks.

Mr. P. B. Tacy thinks for himself. He smokes 
N'iceroys and stirs Porridge (RECORD Feb. 2,5). 
He is Sisyphus pushing the Haystack Monument 
behind a snow plow over the Mohawk Trail. 

Take thought P. B. Tacy! We who have wea- 
thered out the storm; We who have beaten out 
our exile have heard your muttering beep beejis. 
We ha\'e heard you in the dead COW tell of 
walking a dog in the ])ark most brilliantly. And 
now we have heard you cry: Williams is an A&P 
stocked with Junior Executives. Career Week- 
end Sale. 

At your 25th, Nikita willing, Mr. Tacy, you 
will be sla]5i5ed on the back and remembered as 
"Old P. B.! The guy who used to write poetry be- 
fore he started earning $30,000 per." 

Let us have a Tacy Cultural Weekend! We 
can hire out the defunct railroad station (you 
interpret the symbol, P. B.) and play Vivaldi 
( the RECORD critic must go to a faculty mem- 
ber to obtain a critical judgment of Fournier) 
and put on "The Iceman Cometh" ( was it twen- 
ty-one students who attended the premier of 
"Summer and Smoke"?). 

"The cpiiet affirmation of academic excel- 
lence uttered at Hopkins Hall" is quiet, Mr. Tacy. 
Very, very (juiet. In fact . . . 

From the Phoenix Theater in New York, 
from the theater at Webb School in Southern 
California where jjeojile drive forty miles to see 
a i^rep school play, from the Goethe Institute in 
Germany, and from an American University 
where your solitary cry is a unified chorus four 
hundred strong achieving Art and Intellect, we 
who have passed beyond the trauma of our exile 
whisper a sad song: You should have come with 
us, P. B. Tacy. Now . . . now, it's too late. 

Thomas M. Livingston 
Ex-editor COMMENT 
Ex-editor PURPLE COW 
Ex-student Williams College 


I personally thank you for your letter. 

Tlie slings and arrows within it — I accept. 
Gladly, I swallow them because they have been 
said and intelligently said — for other reasons as 
well, but mostly because one person in this void 
that is Williams and its alumni at last dared 
to stand on his hind legs and question POR- 
RIDGE'S pious spewings. 

The compliments within it — I accept hum- 
bly. Both personally and for PORRIDGE, which, 
as you may have discerned, is often a vast over- 
statement of what I feel — done for the sake of 
being as controversial as Numb Williams will 
be controversial. 

Some of us have passed a "trauma" of exile 
here, Mr. Livingst(m. Exile from the living. Exile 
from the involvement in our Liberal Arts which 
would give them some value. Exile from people 
who were interested ... in anything more than 
$30,000 per, someday. 

I have given up on many of my pleas. You 

Men are al 
wt)iild not I 
There could be no 

true that enduring greatness sp;uis the ages, yet Jesus Christ wouid 
wait in brown burlaj) h)r followers lodav on a street corni ; in 
New York. We who are of this age; where are we to seek? li Im^ 
always been youths' lot to seek something or another. Tlmiims 
Wolfe, a prophet hir intellectual Peter Pans, expressed a youilihil 
philosophy, which he summed up in a single sentence: "O \..iith_ 
still wounded, li\iiig, feeling with a woe unutterable, still grii \ iim 
with a grief intolerable, still thirsting with a thirst mi(|ueiich:i!ile_ 
where are we to seek?" We. now in our youth, are posed Aith 
this (luestion today. 

The writer of this picsuiiiptuous piece is a product o' hjs 
times, as are all of tliosi- who read it. Still it is our nlai'e ti try 
to be objective about our times, l-'rom this attempted ol)jec'li\itv 
we should be frightened by a miasma ol apatiiv which seem, to 
prevail in so much of life in our times. It seems as if ikiIukIv 
cares. If we, in our voiitli, are |iroducts ol these times, (leil .ips 
the lack of a coni|)elliiig thirst h)r lile— under Wolle's defiiiilim- 
can be ex|ilained away. 

To discard it so siinph'; to rationalize our position— all m u 
big leaj) back to the suhjecti\(' \ iew— ;ippears to be cheating our- 
selves. The things that we fail to enjoy, the material advaiil i^cs 
of our civilization in which we lose ourseKcs, the apatb.v, the (Mvc 
for security: all seem characteristic ol where we are todav. To i rho 
Robert Matthews' comments in a recent edition ot the Rl'^COHi); 
where is the old joic dc oiorc}' Are people panic stricken at ihc 
idea that they might have to become odd-balls in order to ad tm 
their, in Wolfe's words again, "thirsting with a thirst niKpicinli- 
able?" Has the goal of seciiritv won out to such a degree thai our 
early vears now are nothing but an organized placement period? 

The kaleidoscope of a rewarding life is at a young iiiiui's 
feet. He is strong. It takes a lot to bow him, but sometimes -it 
seems— less to cow him, A good job. a good acceptable girl, a 
good home, a good four-door ear seem to be his goals. Avoidism 
of nearly all else seems to be the touchstone ol his prei^aralion 
for these concrete and secure goals. If this voutb has any faith 
in himself, is not such an orieiitation an insult to the lact lliat 
he is voung? 

Products of our times, we ma\ rationalize our position; or 
when we criticize oui' position—lrom our iiecess;irilv subject i\c 
view— some of us ma\' be wrong. "The N'ounger generation" has 
been going to hell in a basket lor thousands ol ve;us. It is tlicii 
foolish to ;isk c()llecti\'e voutb to shake tlie dust ot its decade, lint 
it is a shi]) in the iiice to liie il the voung do not at least try.

Asian Text Drive 
Called 'Success' 

The first "Books for Asian Stu- 
dents" drive at Williams was con- 
cluded Saturday with a total of 
350 books collected. 

Stated co-chairman Jim Skin- 
ner '61. who, with Dave Hall '61. 
organized and ran the drive, "I am 
very pleased with the results, al- 
though the participation of a few 
houses could have been better." 

A Sophomore Council project, 
the drive covered the fifteen fra- 
ternities, the Soph Quad, the Pine 
Cobble School, and Williamstown 
High. Skinner expre.ssed the hope 
that this collection will be contin- 
ued in the future. 

Asia Foundation 

The sponsor of this drive is tlie 
Asia Foundation. The types of 
books sought were college-level 
textbooks, published after 1945, 
and novels. These books are sup- 
plied to areas in Asia where there 
are known book needs, with the 
aim of helping enlarge Asian stu- 
dents' and scholars' understanding 
of Western thought and methods, 
as well as supplying the basic tools 
for learning. 

Since its inception over two years 
ago, the program has supplied 
more than 580,000 books to Asian 
seats of learning. Students and 
professors of 350 American cam- 
puses, librarians, publishers, and 
booksellers have participated In 
the program. 


Countries which have received 
shipments of books include Af- 
ghanistan, Burma. Cambodia, In- 
dia. Indonesia, Korea, Laos, Sara- 
wak, Singapore, Taiwan, Thail- 
and, and Viet Nam. The central 
office of the drive is in San Fran- 

*;\AMT Ofiers Candida This Weekend; 
Reviewer Lauds Hirsche, Simmonds 

By Richard ,F. Willhite 

Although beginning late due to 
expected last minute technical dif- 
ficulties, the final dress reliearsal 
of Shaw's Candida Tuesday night 
moved swiftly througli the equiv- 
alent of an opening night perfor- 
mance. The set and lighting ef- 
fects of Alexander Saunders, Jr. 
matched the dramatic readiness of 
the cast, and Mr. Giles Playfair 
appeared more than prepared to 
offer his production to the first 
nigliters on Thursday. 

Mrs. Nancy Hirsche in the title 
role offered a carefully done, if 
not overly inspired role as the lov- 
able object of the affections of 
her husband and a young boy. Her 
carriage, if nothing more, implies 
grace and dignity. 

As her husband Morell, Archie 
Palmer used his gift of a powerful 
and commanding voice to its ut- 
most, and exhibited at times a true 
feeling for the words themselves. 
His inexperience, however, ham- 
pered him in making the most of 
his emotions and his gestures ap- 
peared at times as mechanical. Far 
more realistic was Harvey Sim- 
monds as the emotional young poet 
Marchbanks. Through Mr. Sim-

colorful and beautifully pathetic 
character he is, driven by the "se-

In the more supporting roles. 
Prudence Barker was delightful as 
Prosy, tlie Reverend's secretary; 
with fine timing and a true feel- 
ing for comedy. Miss Barker play- 
ed the solemn and giddy spinster 
with the Shavian dryness it requir- 
ed. As the lovable scoundrel Bur- 
gess, Colin Byford matched Miss 
Barker's timing and humor, but 
with anything but dryness. As the 
loud cockney industrialist, Mr. By- 
ford was a perfect contrast to the 
dignity, dryness, and-or pathos of 
the other characters.

You all know, of course, tliat every I'licinccring senior is receiv-

know just liow t'ahulous tliese olTers lire? 1 )o you liuve !iny idoii 
how widely the corporations are eiinipctinn? Let me cit(' for 
you tlio true and typical of Cliatswortli Usceolu, a true 
and typical tsenior. 

Cliatswortli, walking acros.s tlie M.LT. (•;nii|ius one day 
week, was liailed l)y a man sittiiif; in a yellciw convertible 
studded witli precious fiein stones. "Ilcllii," said the iiiiiii, "I am 
Norwalk T. Sig;al'i)os of the Sigafoos Bearing and liusliing Com- 
pany. Do you like this car?" 

"Yeah, liey," said Cliatsworth. 

"It's yours," said Sisafoos. 

"Thanks, hey," said Cliatsworth. 

"Do you like I'liili]) Morris?" said Riffifoos. 

"Of corris," said Cliatswortli. 

"Here is a pack," said Sijjafoos. ".\nd a new pack will be 
delivered to you at twelve-iiiiiiute intervals every day as loug 
as you shall live." 

"Thanks, hey," said Cliatsworth. 

"Does your wife like Philip Morris?" said Sisafoo.?. 

"She would," said Cliatsworth, "but I'm not married." 

"Do you want to be?" said Sigafoos. 

"What American boy doesn't?" .said Cliatsworth. 

Sigafoos pressed a button on the dashboard of his convertible 
and the trunk ojicned up and out came a nubile maiden with 
golden hair, flawless features, a perfect disposition, and the 
appendix already removed. "This is Laurel Gcduldig," said 
Sigafoos. "Would you like to marry her?" 


"^^ \i \ler3ppeL'cf/x out Pi 

"Is her appendix out?" said Cliatsworth. 

"Yes," said Sigafoos. 

"Okay, hey," said Cliatsworth. 

"ConKratulations," said Sigafoos. "And for tliohnppy bride, 
a pack of Philip Morris every twelve miuutea for the rest of 
her hfe." 

"Thanks, hey," said Laurel. 

"Now then," said Sigafoos to Cliatswortli, "lot's get down 
to business. My company will start you at .S45,0()l) a year. You 
will retire at full salary upon reaching the age of 2('). "When you 
start work, we will give you a three-story house made of bullion, 
complete with a French Provincial swimming jiool. We will 
provide sitter service for all your children until they are safely 
through puberty. We will keep your teeth in good repair, and 
also the teeth of your wife and children unto the third genera- 
tion. We will send your dentist a pack of Philip Morris every 
twelve minutes as long as he shall live . . . Now, son, I want you 
to think carefully about this olTi-r. Meanwhile, here is ten 
thousand dollars in small, unmarked bills, which places you 
under no obligation whatsoever." 

"It certainly seems like a fair oflfer," said Cliatsworth. "But 
there is something you should know. I am not an engineer. In 
fact, I don't go to M.I.T. at all. I am a poetry major ut Harvard. 
I just came over here on a bird walk." 

"Oh," said Sigafoos. 

"I guess I don't get to keep the money and the convertible 
and Laurel now, do I?" said Cliatsworth. 

"Of course you do," said Sigafoos. "And if you'd like the job, 
my offer still stands.'! «> uug. MMBhuimM

'59 Track Squad 
Schedules 7 Meets 

By Jay Osgood 

The 1959 Williams varsity track 
team led by co-captains Bob Hat- 
cher and George Sudduth faces 
another tough seven meet schedule 
which includes for the first time a 
iriaiiBular meet with Tufts and 
Boston University. 

Coach Tony Plansky is still un- 
certain about which men will be 
on the roster since many of the 
men on the team last year are par- 
licipants in a winter sport and 
liave chosen to wait a few weeks 
l)efore reporting. 

Good Sprint Strength 

Williams should have fine sprint 
strength if both senior Chip Ide 
and sophomore Walt Henrion run 
ihis spring. Ide won the E.I.C.A. 
100 as a sophomore and has done 
u consistent 10 flat 100. Henrion 
ran five events for the freshmen 
last season and his best time for 
Uic 100 was 9:9. 

The only experienced Eph quar- 
UT miler will be Co-capt. George 
.Sudduth, who holds college rec- 
(irds for both the 440 and the 880. 
The other Williams middle dis- 
tance man, Bill Moomaw, has been 
running very well inside this win- 
ur and should do well in the 880 
this spring. Dave Canfield and 
.lohn Allen are the Williams milers. 
IIat«her In Four Events 

Jack-of -all- trades, Co-captain 
Bob Hatcher, will sprint, polevault, 
I'nter the field events, and broad 
jump. Soph weight man Bob Judd 
entered the shot put, discus, jave- 
lin and high jump for the freshmen 
last year and may score for the 
var.sity in each event. 

Senior Tony Harwood pole-vaul- 
ted 12' 6" as a sophomore, but he 
i.s virtually alone in his event as is 
high jumper Bob Dunham, who has 
reached 6'1".

Tobin Downs Davis In Squash Final Round 

By Stu Davis 
Defending champion Greg 
Tobin, '60 slammed his way in- 
to the finals of the college 
squash tourney, and then easi- 
ly defeated Sam Davis, '59 to 
successfully defend his title. 

The junior star had little dif- 
ficulty in climbing to the fi- 
nals. He turned in 3-0 victories 
over Robin Lee, '62, Hank Cit- 
ron, '62 and Jeff Shulman, '60 
before varsity co-captain Chris 
Schaefer, '59 drove him to four 
games. In the semi-finals To- 
bin defeated the other co-cap- 
tain Ernie Fleishman, 3-0. 
Coach Chaffee was not surpris- 
ed by Tobin's victory, as he felt 
his No. 1 man was "far super- 

ior" to any of the other con- 

The surprise player in the 
tourney was runner-up Sam 
Davis, who reached the finals 
by first defeating Steve Thayer, 
'61. He later squeaked by Bill 
Hyland, the top player on the 
frosh team, and Bill Miller '59, 
a strong varsity competitor. Da- 
vis finally bowed to Tobin in 
three short games: 15-11, 15-9, 

For the third straight year To- 
bin gained the finals of the 
squash tourney, and in the last 
two years emerged victorious. As 
a freshman he finished second 
to Ollie Stafford '59. Last year 
he defeated Roger Southall '58 
for the crown. 

Coombs Predicts Improved Team 
As Annual Dixie Tour Approaches 

By A! Miller 

Varsity baseball coach Bobby 
Coombs feels that this year's base- 
ball team should be an improve- 
ment over last year's, but declined 
to comment further on the out- 
look for the season. He said that 
it is difficult to make predictions 
on the strength of a couple of 
weeks' work in the cage. 

However, both he and Captain 
Rich Kagan seem to feel that the 
team may be helped considerably 
by a better than average sopho- 
more crop. The sophomores to 
watch include short .stop Pete 
Haeffner and outfielder Pete 
Smith, the two leading hitters on 
last year's freshman team, second 
baseman Bob Adams, and pitchers 
John Whitney and Art Moss. 
Pitciiing Improved 

One of the strong points of this 
year's squad will be the pitching 
if last year's sophomores have ben- 
efitted by the year's experience. 
Coach Coombs will have a good 
deal of depth with a junior dom- 
inated staff. Bill Todt, Ned LeRoy, 
J. B. Morris, and Don Lisher, all 
back from last year, will be helped 
by senior southpaw Harry Grat- 
wick. and .sophomores Whitney and

Williains and Amherst. Many base- 
ball dignitaries, including baseball 
commissioner Ford Frick will be on

ness the centennial celebration. 
Friday there will be a game played 
here with a big dinner following, 
and then Saturday the scene will

game. Amherst won the first game 
73-32 in 26 innings.

Tennis Squad To 
Begin Rebuilding 

By Ricl( Seidenwurm 

A major rebuilding job faces Wil- 
'iams tennis coach Clarence Chaf- 
fee this season. Only .seniors Tom 
Davidson and Joe Turner and jun- 
ior Greg Tobin remain from last 
year's team which compiled a 5-5 
record against rugged competition. 
Contesting for the coveted 
first singles spot will be jun- 
ior Clyde Buck and sophomore 
Bruce Brian. Buck, who was side- 
lined last season by the Asian flu, 
copped the college tournament this 
fall by defeating freshman John 
Botts in the finals. Brian compiled 
a fine record as freshman co-cap- 
tain last year. 

Turner, Davidson 

Turner is slated to play third 
singles while Captain Davidson 
will hold down the fourth spot. 
Tobin, Eph .squash standout, will 
play fifth man. The final spot will 
be contested by juniors Bob Pyle 
and Jeff Shulman and sophomores 
John Leathers and Fred Kasten. 

Chaffee intends to do some ear- 
ly season experimenting in the 
doubles, but tentatively intends to 
pair Tobin and Buck, Brian and 
Davidson, and Shulman and Kas- 
ten. He feels the singles lineup will 
be well-balanced and fairly strong 
and that the doubles will be the 
key to the team's future. Faced 
with this rebuilding problem, Chaf- 
fee is not overly optimistic, but 
has stated that, "'We won't do too 

Spring Trip 

During spring vacation the team 
will travel south to compete in pre- 
season warmups against 'William 
and Mary, U 'Va, Duke, George 
Washington 'University, the Coun- 
try Club of 'Virginia at Richmond, 
and Navy. 

A difficult twelve team schedule 
in three weeks starting April 24 
at RPI and including such per- 
ennially strong teams as Harvard, 
Princeton, Yale, Dartmouth, Army, 
and Amherst will present a bold 
challenge to a relatively inexper- 
ienced squad. The first of six 
home matches takes place against 
Army Friday, May 1. 

This is Boots, the Williams Cluh 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 yon 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.

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

move on 
Charlottesville for another pre- 
season game on the 25th with the 
University of Virginia. Both of 
these teams defeated the Eph 
squad on the southern practice 
tour last year to mar an otherwise 
perfect record. From then on, 
Coach Ostendarp's team was un- 
beatable, winning the remainder of 
its practice contests and rolling up 
an 8-0 record for the season. 
Defense A Question Mark 

Coach Bill McHenry, in his first 
season as lacrosse coach at 'Wil- 
liams, is impressed with his team's 
showing in practice. 'T am encou- 
raged by the spirit and hustle here. 
The team looks good, and if we can 
find a good defense we'll have a 
fine season. Right now we have to 
do a rebuilding job in that depart- 

In an attempt to bolster his de- 
fense, McHenry has moved Palmer 
White, who played midfield last 
year, back to help Win Healy, Dick 
Gallup, and sophomore John Horst. 
The Ephs have three big assets in 
George Boynton on attack, Roggie 
Dankmeyer at midfield, and Cap- 
tain Jock Jankie in the goal. All 
three were outstanding last year 
and were selected as Honorable 
Mention Ail-Americans. 
Attack Strong 

Williams is strong at attack, with 
veterans Nick Radcliff, B. DeMal- 
lie, Pitt Johnson, and Bob Embry, 
along with newcomer Bill White- 
ford from last year's Frosh club. 
The midfield looks adequate with 
Hal McCann, Bill Miller, Chuck 
Cutler, Jay Hodgson and Eric Wid- 
mer fighting for positions. 

The schedule is essentially the 
same as the one that Williams 
romped to a New England Cham- 
pionship on last year, with the ex- 
ception that powerful Hofstra has 
replaced Harvard. Musing over his 
schedule, McHenry said, "Right 
now, before the season starts, I 
can see that our toughest game will 
be with Hofstra. Dartmouth, New 
Hampshire, and Yale could also 
give us trouble. 

"I wasn't here last year, so I 
couldn't compare this year's team 
to last year's. But if we can solve 
the question mark on defense we 
could have a good season." 

Pending good weather, the la- 
crosse team will play three other 
practice games when they return 
home. The schedule calls for them 
to play Worcester Tech April 2, U- 
Mass April 4, and RPI April 7.

Chief Travel Business 

Spectorsky Sees 'University Idea' In College Writing 

"Business Is Great" 


By Bill Anderson 

"Business is just great." said 
president of tlie Travel Bureau 
Pliil Preston, as he sat down after- 
having spent the better part of 
an hour "after hours" making last 
minute arrangements on matters 
ranging from a ride to Pittsf ield to 
a flight from Hartford to Miami. 

Settling into his chair Preston 
first made note of the organiza- 
tion of the Travel Bureau. Each 
function of the Bureau has its own 
head; Jim Maas in charge of air- 
lines, John Carroll in charge of 
railroads, Wally Bernheimer the 
European tours, and Wally Preb- 
ble the Nassau trip. John Oilman 
is business manager, and the whole 
organization is supervised by Hen- 
ry Plynt. 

Ticket Service 

Conversation then turned to air 
travel, which comprises the prin- 
cipal business of the Travel Bu- 
reau. Preston stated that a few 
years ago the Bureau obtained tic- 
ket stock from United Airlines. 
Through United they can "call Al- 
bany or Springfield and make a re- 
servation on any major airline any- 
where, then write the ticket out 
and hand it over the counter." In 
addition the Bureau recently ob- 
tained ticket stock from "supple- 
mental" airlines. These indepen- 
dent lines run flights at different 
times each day at a considerably

reduced cost. Preston said many 
students have taken advantage of 
this plan in buying tickets to Chi- 
cago. The Nassau trip is also using 
the service. 

De-emphasize Railroads 

Turning to the subject of rail- 
roads Preston commented that the 
Travel Bureau is de-emphasizing 
the rails this year because of in- 
creasingly poor service. He pointed 
out tliat the Eastern States from 
Chicago arrived six hours late af- 
ter Christmas vacation. The Tra- 
vel Bureau also handles European 
passages on student ships. 

"Be not a fornicator, O student, 
a robber, a murderer, a deceitful 
merchant, a champion at dice . . . 
Exhibit a good deportment in 
deeds, and in words; learn the 
custom of the country in which 
you happen to be ... Be peaceful 
among peaceful citizens, be like a 
ricli patron among the poor." 

The above, from the "Morale 
Scholarium", a handbook of stu- 
dent ethics written by a medieval 
professor at the Sorbonne, John of 
Garland, appears in A. C. Spec- 
tarsky's book, "The College Years," 
.1 rcci:ntly published collection of 
,vr .n s on Llie general topic of 
caUig? life. The writings, by au- 
thors suc!i as Benjamin Franklin, 
Van Wysk Brooks. Jonathan Swift, 
Jgden Na.-h. and Sloan Wilson, 

ingc' fra i .'i-rrioiis and comic es- 
says to ethical commands, and to 

The purpose of the book is to 
present a picture of what the edi- 
tor terms the growth of the "uni- 
versity idea", which he defines as 

a convocation of people whose 
primary purpose is the accumula- 
tion, the .sharing, and the exten- 
sion of knowledge.'- 

In pursuit of this idea, the editor 
pictures college life in all its pha- 
ses — academic, athletic, and social. 
One of the most enduring aspects 
of college life is the theme of the 
liero, a theme propounded in tlie 
stories of Prank Merriwell or Dink 

"The College Years" offers am- 
ple documentation of the academic 
connotations of college life. Per- 
haps the most interesting of tlie 
essays is an article entitled '-Ivy 
Superiority" by Henry Morton Ro- 
b-nson. A graduate of Columbia, lie 
terms the universities of the Ivy 
League the last stronghold of aca- 
demic excellence. "It's frank in- 
sistence on academic quality -as 
oppo.sed to assembly-line produc- 
tion—that exposes Ivy League 
deans, dons, and directors of ad- 
missions to charges of .snobbery 
and elitism ..."

On Funerary Art 

"I have no particular reason for 
choosing this subject, except that 
I am at the age at which one takes 
a wistful pleasure in simply being 
able to look at tombs from the out- 
side." Erwin, of Prince- 
ton's Institute of Advanced Stu- 
dies, thus began his talk Monday 
night on "Tlie Virtues and Arts of 
Funerary Sculpture." He was in- 
troduced to the Jesup Hall aud- 
ience by the Lecture Committee's 
Dorian Bowman. 

"The Basic Attitude" 

"Funerary art," Panofsky postu- 
lated, "represents the basic atti- 
tude which an age takes to death, 
and this, to life." Beginning his il- 
lustrated study with the Egyptians, 
he concluded it in the 17th Cen- 
tury. "Modern tombs are a scep- 
tical affair," he explained. "He 
wlio attempts to write a history of 
18th, 19lh, and 20th Century art 
must look for his authority out- 
side the cemeteries, and even out- 
side the churches," 

The Egyptians, he found, were 
anticipative, attempting to provide 
for the needs of the deceased in 
the future life. In contrast, the art 
of the Greeks became "essentially 
commemorative." The prospective 
art of the early Christians not only 
glorified the deceased, but also 
"celebrated the beautification of 
his .soul." Later Christian art as- 
sumed a more commemorative sig- 
nificance, in forms which first ap- 
peared on the tombs of professors. 
"They were the first, Panofsky 
grinned," who wanted to be com- 
memorated rather than saved." 

Born in Germany, Panofsky 
holds a PhD. from the University 
of Freiburg. He came to the Uni- 
ted States in 1934, accepting his 
post at Princeton in 1935. He is one 
of the world's leading iconologists 
and the author of numerous books. 
His works include "Meaning in the 
Visual Arts," "Early Netherlandish 
Paintings," and "Albrecht Durer." 

Camp '61 Drives Winning Jaguar 
In Sport Car Club Inaugural Rally 

w n 


The starting: line of a 35 mile course 


Fifteen cars entered and finish- 
fd the Inaugural Tii-State Sports 
Car Rallye Sunday sponsored by 
tlie Williams Sport Car Club. The 
winning time on the 35 mile course 
was turned in by Paul Camp and 
Mike Prazer in a 2.4 liter Jaguar. 

The cars, ranging from MG's to 
a '51 Cadillac, left Chapin Hall at 
one minute intervals. The object 
was to arrive at each of the two 

check points and the finish line at 
as close to the exact theoretical 
time as possible. The drivers and 
their navigators were given sealed 
instructions containing mileage, 
speeds, and route dii-ections. 

Bill Ryan '61 managed the rallye. 
He revealed club plans for another 
rallye in May, as well as a possible 
Gymkhana, or sports car obstacle 
race, on houseparty weekend. 

Playfair, Willhite Featured In 'Darkness At Noon'; 
Kingsley's Drama Will Open Thursday At AMT 

(j''anite and Iron! 'I'lie corridor of an ancient linssian pi ison buried dee|) miderj^ronnd. March 
1937 . This is the settinj^ of Sidney Kinj^slev's hnitally stark drama of terror and defiance, Dark- 
ness at Xoon, which will he presented Thursday and Saturday e\eninf^s, Apn\ 9 and 11, at the AMT. 
Directed hs' Boh Mathews ofi and starring Ciles Playfair as Nicolai Senionovitch Hnha.shov, the 
production is the story of the nej^ation of the human soul. It is tlic story of Conuniniist terror and 
/.ealoiis deyotion to its revolutionary doctrine. 

Perversion, Terror 
From the "verminous", sex-star- 
ved, perverted tsarist prisoner 402 
to the recalcitrant, emboldened, 
and defiant character of Rubashov, 
Kingsley vividly depicts the cold, 
impersonal, self-devouring Com- 
munist dream. The tsai'ist's 17- 
year accumulation of caked filth 
and Rubashov's realization of per- 
sonal futility are concomitants of 
the expediency-oriented Commu- 
nist regime. 

But as it is a story of the ex- 
pedient yielding of the old to the 
new, it is also a portrayal of old 
Rubashov's dedication to his revo- 
lutionary dream. He coldly defies 
this bastardization of his ideal. In 
unflinching adherence to his be- 
liefs he defies the human sensation 
of pain. But dedication to personal 
beliefs must be subordinated to 
Party expediency. Human scruples 
are not inviolable. They are non- 
existent. Even in death Rubashov 
has no will. 

Love Outlawed 

Rubashov must consider music 
dangerous. He cannot love Luba. 
To enjoy, to love is "to realize that 
humans can create beauty". Thus 
having lived by denying the rights 
of the individual, so he must die, 
not as the leader of the Party, but 
as prisoner 402. After a frustrated 
and frenzied realization of his er- 
ror and an impassioned effort to 
clutch humanity, Rubashov dies a 
betrayed and broken man. For In 
accordance with his own commu- 
nist dogma, "golden lads and girls 
must, as chimney sweepers, come 
to dust". 

Impressive Array 
An impressive array of actors 
enhances this theatrical drama of 
power. Collaborating with Playfair, 
Richard Willhite plays the brutally 
cruel Gletkin and Robert Mathews 
portrays the old and insidiously 
sympathetic jailer Ivanov. Eliza- 
beth Mamorsky plays Luba Lo- 
shenko, Rubashov's luscious mis- 

John Czarnowski and Walt 
Brown also have intriguing arid 
substantial roles in a cast of 23.

"Bombers over Russia" 

Senator Barry Goldwater was 
quite emphatic concerning the 
Russian threat, stating, "We should 
send bombers over Russia once a

Dean Acheson gave his opinions on

strengthening of NATO, and on 
our military status, urging accel- 
erated missile development. 

Senator Strom Thurmond gra- 
ciously gave his views of the Negro

Record Initiates Plan 
To Raise Circulation 

A campaign to increase campus 
sub.scription is being undertaken 
by the editorial and business 
boards of the Williams Record this 
week. The plan is under the direc- 
tion of Stu Levy of the editorial 
board in cooperation with B. De- 
Mallie and Ed Bagnulo, co-business 

According to Levy, the purpose 
of this move "... is to increase the 
reading of the newspaper on cam- 
pus by reducing the subscription 
rates and thus to decrease the 
number of students who are unin- 
formed about college activities." 
SlidlnB Price Scale 

The new price of a subscription 
to the individual member will de- 
pend on the percentage of the fra- 
ternity that subscribes to the plan. 
The individual rates decrease as 
the percentage of the fraternity 
subscribers increases. 

Speakers from the RECORD will 
visit all the houses this week In 
order to explain the plan and to 
register subscribers. 

Cattle rustling — the victim a 
purple cow — occurred In the after- 
math of the annual scholarship 
tea dance of the Williams Alum- 
ni Association of Cleveland-North- 
eastern Ohio. 

Borrowed from a local dairy, the 
life-size paper mache cow was used 
to .symbolize a purple cow at the 
dance, attended by about 700 peo- 
ple, including many non-alumni. 
The dance was over about dinner- 
time, and the cow was to be pick- 
ed up the next morning. 

Around 11 p.m., however, sev- 
eral men came, announced. "We're 
from Williams College," put the 
cow in their convertible, and drove 
away. The kidnapping was discov- 
ered the next morning. The News 
Directors Office reports, fortunate- 
ly, that the cow has been recover- 
Alumni Association Scholarships 

The dance is a typical example 
of how six Williams Alumni As- 
sociations raise scholarship money 
to send boys to Williams from 
their area. Cleveland was the first 
to do such, having held their first 
dance in 1952. 

The scholarships awarded are 
usually for a maximum of tuition. 
The local alumni associations se- 
lect their own winner from a list 
of boys who have been accepted 
for the coming year and approved 
for a scholarship by the Admis- 
sions and Student Aid Offices. 


Registration is in progress 
this week for the fall 1959 se- 
mester. The Registrar, Mrs. Ka- 
therine McCraw has announced 
hours during which the depart- 
mental student advisers will as- 
sist students in making out their 
course schedules. 

Students are urged to avoid 
the Friday rush period. Cer- 
tain courses have registration 
quotas and are liable to be fill- 
ed soon. 

Early Room Drawing 
Slated For Freshmen 

Assistant Treasurer Shane Rior- 
den has announced that in view of 
the exceptionally large Class of '62, 
dormitory drawings for sopho- 
mores-to-be will be held during 
April this year. 

'62 Preference 

With the large freshman class 
showing little attrition, Riorden 
has formulated the policy of hous- 
ing all sophomores, leaving the re- 
maining juniors and seniors to find 
rooms in the fraternities. West 
College, one entry of Morgan Hall 
and in Grey lock. 

Riorden indicated that there will 
be increased possibilities for those 
who wish to engage rooms "off 
campus" to do so this year. Soph- 
omores, however, will not be al- 
lowed this privelege. 

Form Combinations 

Riorden urged that freshmen be- 
gin now to group themselves into 
various combinations. There will 
be five quadruple suites, 64 triple 
accommodations, 28 doubles and 24 
single rooms available. 

Drawings allow the combination 
with the lowest number picked to 
have first choice at the available 
rooms and so on in ascending or- 
der. Freshmen are invited to tour 
the sophomore rooms at their con- 
venience so that they will have a 
reasonable idea of their rooming 
preferences for next year.

NSA Re-Evaluation 

The oiic-vcar ]Di()l)ati()iiarv period u;raiitcd 
the National Student .\s.soei;itioii at William.s is 
now up. It is time for a re-e\aluati()n of the NSA. 

Clearly, Williams has gained little or nothiiifr 
from its inemhershi]-). From NSA's \aunted 
collection of literature dealiii<^ with prohlems of 
student jj;o\eniinent, we have used two pam- 
l^hlets, hoth hefore joiniiifr in 1957. Nothing of 
\'aliie was heard from the delcfi;ates W^illianis 
sent to the National Student C^oniijress. 

Nor, a|)pareiidy, does NS.\ think it has any- 
thinir to gain from us. Early in March, Boh Kiley, 
the jiresident of the National Student .Associa- 
tion was scheduled to come here to discuss our 
position within the orjijanization. He ne\er ar- 
ri\ed. No excuses were offered. 

Is NSA doing anythinjr of \alue, particularly 
with reference to Williams? It is doing; some 
worthwhile things in the area of student lea- 
der e.xchanges and foreign scholarship fund- 
raising. But here NS.'\ merely acts as an adminis- 
trator, a function e(|uallv well ser\c'd hv the 
W-'orld Uni\'ersit\' Ser\ice and the Ex|KM-inient 
in International Living. Neither of these claims 
to represent the student o]5ini()n of Williams Col- 
lege merelv hecanse we participate in Uiem, 

The opiiu'ons of the National Student .Associa- 
tion, as emhodicd in their statements of ha- 
sic ]-)ur|ioses and the proceedings of the ele\enth 
National Student (Congress, do not reflect the 
opinions of the students of Williams College. 
NSA envisions the role of student govenunent as 
the voice of the student hody in "academic, ad- 
ministrative (particularly admissions) and co- 
curricular" decisions. This last term has success- 
fnllv escaped definition, even hy the NSA. 

Although NSA halfheartedly suggests that the 
]5urpose of the college is education, it devotes 
so much of its energy to proposing husyhodv 
committees on conimunitv relations, frec>-milk- 
for-du'-kiddies and marches on Washington that 
education is ohviously secondary. 



It was a cold tlay in London. There was a 
group of 18 students waiting outside a telephone 
hooth for a trunk line to tlie eontinent. They 
were young students and angiy. One of them 
said— "What's all this rot ahont decorum? Lets 
start the silly season so we can get into the jia- 
|)ers. Lord Beaserbrook was down here asking 
for just that sort of thing yesterday. 

Nobody replied for half an hour or so, 
everyone just sat shivering for the phone to ring. 
Then someone said, "what'U we do, old thing?" 
Nobody had iinv silly suggestions. 

Suddenly the telephone rang and all eigh- 
teen London University students piled into the 
hooth which happened to measure 3 x 3 x 14'4" 
high iiicidentallv creating the (tem]5orary) re- 
cord for S(|uee/iiig peo|5le into a i^hone booth of 
diat size. Lord Beaverhrook had a fine time 
with this stunt as it was precisely what he had 
been looking for that hole on page 1. 

It was a hot dav in late |amiary when an 
inmate of S\'racuse Lhiiversity lieard of the Lon- 
don booth record. Racing down to the local phar- 
macv, he measuied the i^hone booth "87. .5 more 
cubic inches!" .'\fter a whirlwind campaign dur- 
ing which be would have flunked out of Wil- 
liams, he succeeded in paying the 29 smallest 
people in the Unisersity to attend a short ritual 
at the corner |iharmacv. Unfortunately, he could 
only cram 26 in but he got his |3icture in the Sv- 
riicuse Hcrald-.\meriean at die top of die page. 

And so it goes— at the most modern and pro- 
gressive schools throughout the world (excej^t 
USS where there are no phones), students are 
climbing into |5hone booths in a niauner which 
seems to the rational observer to he (|uite con- 
trary to the functions of a telephone hooth. 
As usual too, the only thing new aliout the phone 
booths in this Berkshire backwasli are the new 
instruments with those damn 7-digit numbers.

Amherst Report I 

By Ted Castle 

Amherst College students today 
are realizing a rather extreme feel- 
ing of "not getting anywhere." Now 
more than at any other time con- 
temporary students can remember, 
a large number are "going out Into 
the world" to see what it's like to 
become more stable and mature, 
to get the army over with and for 
.similar reasons. Some say that one 
of five members of the Class of 
1960 will not graduate with his 
class for such reasons. 

This is the most disturbing: fac- 
tor uncovered in a rather brief per- 
sonal investigation of unders;ra- 
duate attitudes and opinions at the 
end of March just previous to the 
spring rushing of freshmen at 

Varying reaction to Williams on 
the part of uppercla.ssmen include 
a belief that this college is inferior 
to Amherst scholastically but pos- 
.sessing far more "spirit." Others 
think of Williams and Princeton in 
the same frame of reference. Some 
regard Williams as a last bastion 
where the great percentage of stu- 
dents are "good guys." In very gen- 
eral terms, it might be said that 
the Amherst student believes he is 
getting a better education than we 
are but he does not enjoy himself 
as much in several ways as might 
a Williams counterpart. 

On the whole, there is mucli ex- 
tra-curricular "intellectual and 
cultural foment." The literar.v 
magazine produces four fat issues 
a year supported without advertis- 

ing. Students feel that the quality 
of the writing: in some cases is not 
what it might be, but a great 
people read the magazine. I'aiii. 
cipatiun in activities of the Kirl)y 
Theatre is widespread. AIthiiiLj(h 
there is a certain avant-g.ude 
"arts-crafts" group, It is assiKiu- 
ted with creative graphic and lit. 
erary art rather than with iiip 
theatre. Productions such as ilic 
two parts of King Henry IV sccin 
to involve almost the whole school 
and the plays are very well ;it- 
tcndcd in general. King Ihmy, 
part II, for instance, was abl< to 
draw substantial houses for ci lit 

Students assign a plethor;i of 
reasons for this activity and foi \\q 
observable proclivity for Amli ;st 
men to study pretty conslai ly. 
From them, one finds thai ill 
point to the gradually chan, :iu 
admissions policy as a key fa( .u; 
An attempt has been made duiini> 
the last few years at lo 
get awa.v from the acceptanci of 
the "All round guy" towards ,i(:- 
cepting the avowed academician li 
is rumored that next year the Ad- 
missions Committee will use no 
standards except scholastic a|]ii- 
tude and achievement. No lon^rr 
will geographical distribution l)i a 
factor — neither will secondmy 
school extra-curricular and athle- 
tic activities and prep school or 
high .school preparation will not 
be differentiated. Whether or not 
this rumor is specifically true, tins 
trend is one of the basic factoi.s 
whicli makes Amherst today a sis- 
ter institution — twice removed. 

— first of three parts 


Last month Congress extended 
the peacetime draft to 1963. This 
is another four-year exten.sion of 
an institution which has no tradi- 
tional place in the American sys- 
tem. Senator Morse argued futilely 
foi- a two year law, but aside from 
his the new law passed 
quickly through both Houses. Pu- 
blic awareness was tuned to state- 
hood for Hawaii. As Hanson Bald- 
win said in his column (The Times. 
Mar. 12) : "Today, the public seems 
as apathetic to the i.ssue as Con- 

We know we have to be "strong", 
but we are not quite sure 
whether to be that was with 
hand grenade.s or rockets. The in- 
fantry has always been basic, so 
we continue to jerk many of those 
"eligible" out of their environment 
into the confused waste of the mil- 
itary. This process goes on with lit- 
tle protest. 

In the back of every young man's 
mind is the fear that he will "have 
to go" eventually. Time under the 
flag now is taken almost as a mat- 
ter of course— a disagreeable thing, 
but "necessary." It has taken its 
place as the fourth big step in a 
young American's life — birth, the 
military, marriage, the death. 

Admittedly there has been scat- 
tered opposition to the peacetime 
draft. Stevenson spoke against it 
on practical grounds in his last 
campaign, but his logical argu- 
ments seemed to receive little pub- 

lic consideration. The Quakers and 
other groups have constantly work- 
ed hard to swing both Congres- 
sional and public opinion against 
it. Still the draft goes on with les- 
sening protest. 

Our society is so permeated with 
military experience that at tlu.s 
point nearly every man under 
thirty is either in reserve status of 
some sort, on active duty, or antici- 
pating having either to enlist or lie 
drafted. Basic training, is now u 
universal male experience. Every- 
one knows what an M-1 is. not lo 
salute sergeants, and that it is dan- 
gerous to go AWOL. The accepted 
out for slipping college students is 
the military. Nike bases are as 
common in the suburbs as couni ■ y 
clubs. Madison Avenue has mobi - 
zed to entice people into "pr - 
grams" of all .sorts. Everybo v 
cooks up his pet .scheme to "get v t 
of it". 

It would be a relief to live aga.:i 
in a society where the army w: s 
the army and no more. It won i 
be healthy to have an econoii i' 
that did not need the constani v 
crammed threat of crisis to suppc t 
it. Perhaps such wishes are reai - 
tionary. It may be outmoded ) 
speak again in terms of livii-i 
without the draft, for the word 
situation is such that Ameriui 
must be always ready. To be alwa s 
ready we have taken the draft io 
our bosom as one way to do it.

Imhoff Sees Super Equality Result 
In Weakening Of American Humor 

By Ernie Imhoff 

Wliy do **" not laugh more to- 
(l;iy'; It is really a shame. Fallout, 
ijppmann, Existentialism, Sartre. 
Ciiinus, Nihilism, Summits, Police 
Corruption, Segregation and Draft 
luive put quite a damper on 
things. We have been made more 
sciious than ever before and with

Sunday's Times Magazine were 
hradlined with the phrases "Grim 
Ki'port", "Storm Center", "Un-

But it isn't all trouble in River 
Ciiy. When Jack Douglas writes a 
Ij.ok called My Brother Was an

when these are brought to mind

Room-mates are not only heap.-; (if lini, hut they are also very 
educational, for the jiroper study of iiuiiikiii(i is man, and tliere 
is no better way to learn the drc:iiiis and drives of another man 
than to share a room with hiiri. 

This lieiiiu; the case, it is wise not to keep tlie s.anie room- 
male 1(111 hiiig, because the MKirc nidin-iiiatcs you ha\e, tlie 
more you will know about the drc'iins and (h'iv('s of your 
IcMdw mail. So try to change nKim-iiiatcs as often as you can. 
.\ recent study made by Sigafoos of rrincctdii shows that the 
licsl iiiterx .al for eluuigiiiK njoin-iii.atcs is every four hours. 

liow do you choose a room-mate'.' .Most (.'oiuiselors agree 
that the most important thing to look for in ro(iiii-niat(;s is that 
they be people of n>gular habits. This, I .say, is arrant nonsense. 
What if one of their regular habits happens to he beating a 
Chinese gong from niidniglit to dawu'.' (.)r growing cultures in 
your tooth glass'? Or reciting the Articles of War'? 

Kegular habits, my foot! The most important quality in a 
room-mate is that he should be exactly your size. 
you will have to have his clothes altered to fit you, which can 
be a considerable nuisance. In i'act, it is .sonietiines flatly im- 
possible. I recollect one time I roomed with a man named 
U.sage Tremblatt who was under seven feet tall and weighed 
nearly four hundred pounds. Tliere wasn't a blessed thing I 
could in his entire wardrolie — mitil one night when I was 
invited to a masquerade party. [ cut one leg off a jjair of Trem- 
blatt's trousers, juin|)ed into it, .sewed up both ends, and went 
to the party as a bolster. I took second prize. First prize went 
to a girl named Antenna Radiiitz who poured molasses over 
her head and went as a candied api)le. 

Rut I digress. Let us turn back to the qualities that make 
desirable room-mates. Not the least of these is the cigarettes 
they smoke. When we bum cigarettes, do we want tlieni to be 
shoddy and nondescript? CJertainly not! We want them to be 
distinguished, gently reared, zestful and zingy. And what ciga- 
rette is distinguished, gently reared, zestful and zin^y? Why, 
Phili]) Morris, of corris! Any f . ''"r questions? 

To go on. In selecting a roo.n-mate, find someone who will 
wear well, whom you'd like to keep as a permanent friend. 
Many of history's great friendships first started in college. Are 
you aware, for example, of the remarkable fact that Johnson 
and Hoswell were room-mates at Oxford in 1712? What makes 
this fact so remarkable is that in 1712 Johnson was only three 
years old and Hoswell had not yet been born. But, of course, 
children m.atured earlier in those days. Tike Mozart, who 
wrote his first symphony at four. Or Titian, who painted his 
first masterpiece at five. Or Ilanso Felbgung, who was in many 
ways the most remarkable of all ; he was appointed chief of the 
Copenhagen police department at the age of six! 

It must be admitted, however, that he did badly. Criminals 
roamed the city, robbing and looting at will. They knew little 
Hanso would never pursue them— lie was not allowed to crow 
the street. 

tt i/ou are allowed to cross the street, hie yourself to a to- 
bacconist and stock up on Philip Morris, outstanding among 
non-niter cigarettes, or Marlboro, the filter cigarette with 
better "niakin's." Pick your pleasure. 


Wednesday April 8 , 1959 

People fiere were not always so 
sensitive about their religions, their 
politics, their ethnic group and 
their nation. Besides personal Idio- 
cyncrasies, the above categories 
have the most potential for wit, 
because they involve personal, 
holy things. Deflation of the bloat- 
ed ego seems to be the essence of 
laughter, whether it is creative. 
Intelligent humor, or simple wise- 

Why The Change? 

Why the change? Ironically, per- 
haps it is because of the offshoot 
of liberalism and tolerance in 
America today which says every 
church, race, political party, indi- 
vidual is created equal. Which is 
perfectly correct. But not when 
this limits humorous ribbing, 
since all is then raised on an altar 
of unapproachableness, like a dairy 
of .so many golden calves. Humor 
and respect can walk together with 
clutched hands quite compatibly. 

Harry Golden, one of the few 
true racial-rehgious-political hu- 
morist today tells the story of his 
Irish Catholic friend Timothy 
Mulcahy with whom he used to 
talk about life in the Thirties. The 
two read where Hitler deprived the 
Jews of property rights, where Hit- 
ler took away their citizenship, 
etc. Tim would shake his head at 
the headlines and extend restrain- 
ed .sympathy. Then one day, he 
blew into their familiar saloon in 
a rage of anger, waving a paper 
wildly and pointed to an item on 
page 28 where It was recorded 
that Hitler had imprisoned two 
nuns for alleged hoarding. Beside 
him.self, Tim .shouted, "Now the 
sonofabitch has gone too far." 
Determination Of Motive 

The recognized problem with 
any such humor is the determina- 
tion of the motive for telling the 
story. If related out of bias or mal- 
ice, humor is then but a form of 
sadism. And il is not difficult to 
joke about something when the 
,ioke is shot with another person in 
the sights. 

But wit concerning races, poli- 
tics, religion in this day often con- 
stitute Forbidden Territory, be- 
cause it preys upon the melting 
pot, is neither democratic nor lib- 
eral. Sort of like a huge waste bas- 
ket. It distorts the equality of all 
by dumping everything into the 
American Container.

USNSA Agitates For 
Larger Student Role 

By Michael Mead 

Williams joined the United States 
National Student Association in 
late 1957 on a provisional one-year 
basis. Representatives of the NSA 
had earlier contacted the College 
Council and the matter was turned 
over to a committee headed by Ron 
Stegall and Herb Varnum. They 
conferred with the national and re- 
gional student a.s.sociation presi- 
dents and the CC voted to join on 
the basis of the committee's final 
report. Stegall says today, "if they 
really spoke for American students, 
we fell we ought to be represen- 
ted." Williams sent two represen- 
tatives to the eleventh National 
Student Congress and has partici- 
pated marginally in the regional 
'New England I student conference. 
The NSA claims a membership of 
approximately 400 colleges and 
universities all over the country 
and boasts a million-member con- 
stituency, claiming to speak for the 
"students of America." 
The NSA constitution begins with 
a glowing preamble covering all 
possible areas of student responsi- 
bility. Extremely idealistic in tone, 
it serves as an excellent theoreti- 
cal take-off point for such an or- 
ganization. The remainder of the 
document sets up conditions for 
membership, defines the regional 
student association membership 
and established NSA governing and 
policy-making bodies for the elev- 
en and one-half months of every 
year when the National Student 
Congress is not in .session. 

The by-laws further define the 
constitution, and specifically the 
nature of the National Student 
Congress and regional organiza- 
tions. While a careful audit is in- 
sisted upon tor regional groups, 
none is mentioned for the NSA it- 

National Student Congress 

The National Student Congress 
is set up as a purely representative 
body, the size of members schools 
determining the number of voting 
delegated. Thus Williams has two 
delegates, while Ohio State and 
others of its size are entitled to 
seven. In the few days of the 1958 
congress delegates were called upon 
to consider over one hundred reso- 
lutions proposed by the commis- 
sions of NSA. A report by the Har- 
vard Student Council which even- 
tually to a referendum terminat- 
ing that school's affiliation with 
NSA maintained that these reso- 
lutions often were inadequately 
based in fact and ill-considered by 
both commissions and delegates. 

The areas of NSA interest are 
institutionalized in ihe form of 
four national commissions: Stu- 
dent. Educational and Internation- 
al Affairs and Student Govern- 

The NSA points out, unarguably, 
the little-recognized fact that stu- 
dents of the world look to the stu- 
dents of the US for their opinion 
on international matters. The Na- 


at the foot of Spring St. 

i>. SMrrii 
Chairman Leech, CC's NSA com- 

tional Student Associatioir is 
claimed to be the organization 
which represents the particular 
student view of America on world 
matters. It has taken anti-com- 
munist stand in its withdrawal 
from and opposition to the Inter- 
national Union of Students after 
they became Red dominated. The 
student congress supported a 
strong commission resolution for 
an independent Algeria and de- 
nounced the Hungarian brutality. 
The activities of the International 
Affairs Commission and its organs 
in administering funds for student 
leader exchange programs and for- 
eign student leadership develop- 
ment projects constitute the stron- 
gest selling point for the NSA. It 
is, however, primarily a matter of 
raising funds and administering 
grants, similar to the World Uni- 
versity Service. 

Three Commissions 
The definition of function of the 
other three commissions — Student 
Affairs, Educational, and Student 
Government — is blurred. Their re- 
solutions and functions seem to 
center around two main ideas: Ev- 
eryone, literally everyone, has an 
inalienable right to an approxi- 
mately equal education and stu- 
dents ought to have a large say in 
all aspects of their educational 

A significant emphasis is laid 
upon federal aid to higher educa- 
tion, specifically individual fed- 
eral .scholarships i"at least 60,000 
at its inception"! to be given with 
no strings attached. It was the first 
matter proposed by the Education- 
al Affairs Commission and there 
are repeated references to it in 
mandates proposed by the other 
commissions. The second Basic 
Policy Decision, one of four prime 
directives of the NSA. states, "We 
recognize the right of every stu- 
dent who meets the educational 
institutions specific academic stan- 
dards, to admission to that insti- 
tution . . ." 

In the area of student participa- 
tion in all decisions affecting their 
educational institution, Basic Pol- 
icy Decisions claim "NSA believes 
that effective cooperation should 
include joint participation of stu- 
dents, faculty and administration 
in planning and execution of aca- 
demic, administration and co-cur- 
ricular policy . . ." and "active 
student participation in the formu- 

i lation of administration policies is 

1 recommended . . ."

Amiable Crew-Cut 

College Council 

•'Williams student government 
must demonstrate that within its 
limited sphere of power it can, and 
will, act effectively — fulfilling a 
necessary need of undergraduate 
life." With these words CC Pres- 
ident Al Martin opened the first 
meeting of the 1959 College 
Council. The 
Council thus far 
has made an ef- 
fort to make it- 
self felt within 
its limited sphe- 
re, most notab- 
ly in the recent 

dispute. „,. ., 


The first few meetings served to 
help the CC untrack itself, with 
the time being taken up with com- 
mittee appointments and the or- 
ganization of the most important 
committees, such as the CCF, 
(chairman Gallop '60) the Disci- 
pline Committee (chairman Grif- 
fin 'GO), and the Rushing Commit- 
tee (chairman Coburn '60). 

The most important action thus 
far in the semester was taken 
Thursday preceding spring vaca- 
tion, when the CC ruled in favor of 
the PURPLE COW board headed 
by Steve Cohen '62, upon recom- 
mendation of the CCF, to which 
the dispute had been referred. 

In other action this semester, the 
CC has: 

APPROVED the reorganization of 
the Gul yearbook constitution, with 
Gul finances kept under the close 
supervision of the CCF; 
UNDERTAKEN, through the Ho- 
nor System and Discipline Com- 
mittee, a re-evaluation of the Ho- 
nor Code; 

APPROVED the institution of fines 

for overdue Library reserve books. 

Social Council 

Several suggestions as to areas 
for action were set forth at the 
organizational meeting of the So- 
cial Council last February. Thus 
far, little has been done along 
these lines.

that the record of the Council was 
not an enviable one. Secretary Bob 
Stern explained that "We have 
had a slow start, but we're all a 
little green. Rather than create 
an issue, we are interested in do- 
ing something that is relevant at 
the time." 

The most important of the sug-

Lacrosse Team Praises MeHenry 

By Stu Davis 

High spirits are now dominat- 
ing the varsity lacrosse team which 
has just returned from a success- 
ful scrimmage trip through the 
South. One of the big reasons for 
the team's fine showing is tall, 
crew-cut Bill McHenry, their ami- 
able coach, 

McHenry, in his first year at 
Williams, may find it hard to fill 
the shoes of Jim Ostendarp. whose 
powerful '58 sQuad finished their 
season undefeated. However, if en- 
thusiasm and willingness to work 
with the team arc any indication, 
McHenry should guide his boys to 
another good year. He admits that 
the Eph eleven, thirteenth in the 
country last year, faces four tough 
games in the upcoming season, in- 

cluding Hofstra, perennially in the 
nation's top 10, 

Comments On Trip 

The coach said he was "encou- 
raged by the spirit and condition- 
ing" shown on the .southern trip 
He commented: "We worked real 
hard on conditioning, both indoors 
and behind the AMT, and it paid 
off more than anything else. In the 
second halves we often ran our 
opponents into the ground." Pleas- 
ed with his attack, led by star 
George Boynton, and satisfied with 
his smooth midfield, the coach 
feels his big weakness lies in a so 
tar mediocre defense. What he 
feels is really important and what 
truly pleases him is the fine atti- 
tude of all his players and the lea- 
dership shown by the juniors and

out that the two features which 
make the coach outstanding when

captain reiterated the facts that

are high and the team is in beiier

The spring houseparties edition 
of the 'Cow' will include "the adul-

editorial comment. "Our maga-

In Graphic Arts Study 

Bill Benedict '59 took the initia- 
tive not long ago in forming what i 
can at least claim to be the newest 
and one of the most formal dis- 
cus.sion groups on campus. Per- | 
iodically, nine or ten intere.sted 
students gather at the Clark Art i 
Institute for discussions of aspects | 
of graphic arts. 

Benedict became interested in 
this form of art during the course 
of an essay in an art course he 
takes as an elective. Finding oth- 
ers intrigued by this specialty, Wil- 
liam Collins, curator of prints and 
drawings at the Institute, was per- 
suaded to teach the group in extra- 
curricular classes from time to 

Collins Teaches 

Collins is well prepared for his 
new unofficial duties as teacher 
because of his life-long intimate 
association with art. He was a .spe- 
cialist in rare prints as an art 
dealer for 46 years and has an In- 
fective interest in his field. "Just 
the opportunity for these students 
to be exposed to Mr. Collins is mar- 
vellous. His knowledge, wisdom 
and experience are priceless," says 
Professor S. Lane Fai-son, Jr., 
chairman of the Williams Art De- 

Science Majors 

Others in the group include sen- 
iors Gratwick, Lees, Moomaw, 
Naiman, Rayhill and Roalfe, Mil- 
ler '60 and Mayher '61. None are 
art majors. The majority major in 
sciences but through their new 
found interest hope to develop a 
more critical knowledge and deep- 
er appreciation of artists such as 
Debucourt, Callot and Toulouse- 

rose from 6.57 to 6.76. 

As has been the case in the pre- 
ceding three years, the senior 
placed the greatest number of stu- 
dents on the dean's list with 94. 
However, Thomas R. 'WlTite '60 ob- 
taining an 11.60 was high man in 
the college. The other class leaders 
were Marc Newburg '59 (11.0), Eu- 
gene Weber '61 (10.80, and Fen- 
ner Milton '62 1 11.20). 


For the second semester of the 
present college year, 348 students 
received a total of 492 warnings. 
The class of '59 had the lowest per- 
centage, 24.7, of students who were 
warned, 35.8 percent of the present 
freshman class got warnings which 
is the lowest percentage attained 
by any of the present four classes 
at Williams during the second se- 
mester of their freshman year.

Discusses Approaches To History 

In his essay "Ivy Superiority" Henry Morton Kobinsun terms the 
Ivy League the last stronghold of academic excellence. He contends 
that while many small colleges satisfy the intellectual hunger of lower- 
classmen, "symptoms of scholastic malnutrition" begin to appear in 
the upperclasses Williams RECORD, March 20, 1959 

by John Ferguson 

John G. Sproat. Li'cturi-r in 
History, iuinchcd forward in lii.s 
chair and frowned momentarily 
at the folded copy of the RECORD 
before him. "I certainly don't aKree 
that the Ivy League i.s the last

he said lookinjj; up. 

Sproat, wlio wa.s educated on the 
West Coa,st, continued. "People in 
the East seem to forget that the 
opportunities for an education are 
every bit as Kood in other places. 
After all. certain departments of

history department of Wisconsin 
for example, — are in many re- 
spects better than those in the Ivy 

Williams Adequate 

Having taught at the University 
of California and at Michigan 
State before coming to Williams 
last year, Sproat i.s familiar with 
both the large and small college. 
"I don't believe either that there 
is necessarily intellectual starva- 
tion in the last two years of a small 
college. This certainly isn't true at 

Williams anyway. True, as a small 
college Williams is economically 
limited and must gear its courses to 
its personnel. Nevertheless, upper- 
class seminars are broad enough 
that the student can probably find 
the topic he wants." 

To his students' delight Sproat 
is a man who seems to thrive on 
tlie seminar-type class. "There is 
nothing like a seminar or a thesis. " 
h-i commented, "to allow a student 
to find out what the academic 
world is all about. In a seminar you 
are forced to really grapple with

To the query that the function 
of the history department often 
seems to be the destruction of the

initially, but then related, "With

more aware of the tendencies ol

snarled, flicking ashes off his blue pin-stripe. 

"Just a social call," Robin the Hood smiled thinly, 
"unless it was you who put the heist on Moll 
Marian?" He pulled his slouch hat low over one 
cold eye. 

The King licked his fat lips. "I ain't seen the dame,," he laughed nervously. "Look, why don't 
you and your boys relax and drink a can of Schaefer 
with me? They say it's got a .smooth round taste- 
never sharp, never flat." 

Fire Truck grabbed an empty Schaefer can from in 
front of The King and crumpled it with one hand. 
"You want I should lean on him a little, Boss?" 

"Not yet," Robin the Hood said, speaking out of the 
corner of his mouth. He put his hunting horn to his 
lips and blew the notes of "What d'ya hear in the 
best of circles?" From somewhere in the castle a 
girl's voice answered, "Schaefer all around." 

"I get heem now, eh, Boss?" Little Juan hissed. The 
King made a lightning move for his shoulder cross- 
bow, but Robin beat him to 
the draw. "Supi)ose you 
bring Moll Marian out?" he 
said softly. 

"Sure, Hood, sure— it was 
only a little joke." 

"Any more jokes like that, 
King," Robin the Hood said, 
"and you might find your- 
self in need of a little castle protection." He watched 
Fire Truck and Little Juan put Moll Marian and

thusiasm Sproat went on rapidly. 
"It becomes the function of a sur-

leaders of the past."

Practice In Dixie 
Aids Eph Golfers 

by I'cte Ilaisbeek 

Ten varsity golfers and four 
fre.shmen made the journey to I 
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for t 
the annual spring vacation golf! 
trip. I 

Coach Richard Baxter described 
the trip as being the best he could 
remember, and noted that a break 
from the weather man could pro- 
vide a very successful sca.son this 
year. "The boys got all the golf 
they wanted", Baxter stated, but 
there was a hint of pe.ssimism in 
his voice as he described the soggy 
condition of the local course. 

Captain Hans Halligan carded 
the best round of the trip with a 
two over par 74. Also consistantly ■ 
in the 70's were soph Andy Mac- 
Kechnie and veterans Bob Julius 
and Bill Tuach, Others who made 
the trip were Chuck Smith, Char- 
lie Boynton, Tim Coburn, Jim 
Frick, and Pete Hager as well as 
the four freshmen golfers, Jim 
Watts, Dick Capalli, Roger Smith, 
and Jay Johnston.

Racketmen Split Four 
Spring Tour Matches 

Led by senior Tom Davidson, the 
E|)h netmen compiled a record of 
two wins and two losses on the 
spring trip. Their showing was 
stronger than this record indicates 
as they were defeated by .scores 
of 5 to 4 in their 2 losses, and, on 
the other hand, won by decisive 
scores of 9 to and 7 to 2 over 
William and Mary and the Uni- 
versity of Virginia. 

The first loss, coming at the 
hands of Duke University was an 
extremely close malcli with all of 
the singles matches being drawn 
out to three ,sets. The Purple were 
on the verge of victory ,several 
times. The match was not decided 
until the doubles in which the 
Bluedevils of Duke pulled out the 

Davidson Undefeated 

Davidson not only was outstand- 
aig in winning all of hi.s singles 
matches, playing both the third 
and fourth position, but also com- 
bined with sophomore Bruce Bri- 
an, who played first singles, to 
sweep all of his doubles encoun- 
ters. Other players who distin- 
guished themselves by their fine 
recoi'ds were Clyde Buck, who al- 
ternated with Brian in the one 
position, and soph Fred Kasten. 
Each was defeated only once in his 
singles matches. 

The second loss which came at 
the hands of a team representing 
the Country Club of Virginia at 
Richmond, was equally as close as 
the Duke defeat. The key factor in 
the Williams setback was the ex- 
perience of the Richmond players. 

Trackmen Beaten 
In 'Gator Relays 

Members of the Williams College 
Varsity track team journeyed to 
Florida this spring to compete in 
the Florida Relays. The team en- 
tei-ed in three events and failed to 
qualify for the finals. Senior Bill 
Moomaw ran a 2:01.6 880 yd. run 
and did not qualify. Walt Henrion 
ran a 10.1 100 yd. dash in his heat 
but did nnl qualify. The team was 
entered in the sprint medley but 
did not place. 

Despite this poor showing the 
team did a creditable job in their 
first outdoor effort. The team is 
looking forward to matching last 
year's undefeated record.

Baseball Beneiits 
From Dixie Trip 

by Al Miller 

"They did just about as I expec- 
ted they would," was Coach Bobby 
Coombs comment on the outcome 
of the baseball team's annual trip 
south. Playing only Elon College 
and Pfeiffer College, both in North 
Caiolina, the team returned to 
V^illiamslown with a 2-8 record. 
The game with Princeton, ,sched- 
uled for Monday was rained out. 

The team did better than the 
record indicates. Coach Coombs 
said that they started out playing 
poorly due to lack of practice but 
finished a much improved team. 
He credited Norm Walker and Bob 
McAlainc especially for their hit- 
ting and John Whitney. Don Lis- 
cher. Art Moss, and Ned LeRoy for 
Iheir pitching performances. On 
the whole the pitching was spo- 
radic, with control troubles both- 
ering all the pitchers, but Moss and 
Li.scher came through to win sepa- 
rate victories, while LeRoy pitched 
a four hitter, and Wliitney tossed 
an eight hitter in losing 
Walker Leads the Hitters 

Norm Walker led the hitters 
with an average of .355 followed 
by McAlaine with a .333 average. 
Especially encouraging was the 
number of extra base hits that 
Williams amassed. Walker and 
McAlaine were again the leaders 
in this department with two home 
runs and a double apiece. Rich 
Kagan. team captain, got two 
doubles, while Tom Christopher. 
Bill Hedeman. Pete Haeffner. and 
Bob Stegeman all got extra base 

In the field Williams committed 
20 errors, for an average of two a 
game. The two games the Ephs won 
they didn't commit any errors. 
Both games were played against 
Pfeiffer. the score of the first being 
14-5 and the second 5-3. Their 
worst time came in the first three 
games when they committed a 
total of ten errors, half the amount 
they committed on the entire trip. 
Lose First Six 

They started the trip with sin- 
gle games against Elon on the 
23rd and 24th. losing the first one 
9-4 and the second 8-1. LeRoy 
Morris, and Gratwick pitched the 
first game, giving up a total of on- 
ly four hits, and Todt and Moss 
pitched the second, giving up a 
total of ten hits. Highlight of the 
series was Stegeman's triple in the 
first game. 

From there. Williams journeyed 
to Pfeiffer college to play double 
headers in a row. They lost the 
first four games by scores of 12-0. 
5-2, 12-3. and 2-1. Lischer pitched 
the first game and gave up 11 hits, 
Whitney pitched the second and 
gave up 8 hits, Morris and Grat- 
wick combined in the third and 
gave up seven hits, and Ned LeRoy 
pitched the fourth and limited 
Pfeiffer to 4 hits. 

Williams Comes Alive 

In the fifth game against Pfeif- 
fer. Williams erupted with 9 hits, 
including two home runs by Walk- 
er and one by McAlainc, as Sopho- 
more Art Moss pitched the team to 
a 14-5 victory. This was the first 
game in which Williams had not 
committed an error. In the .second 
game that day, the positions wei'e 
reversed as Bill Todt was touched 
for 8 hits and gave up 8 bases on 
balls in losing 13-2. McAlaine got 
his second home run of the day 
and Haeffner pounded out a triple 
to spark an otherwise weak hitting 
performance by Williams. 

In the seventh game between the 
two clubs, Don Lischer pitched an 
8 hitter as Williams triumphed 5-3. 
Norm Walker got the only extra 
base hit for Williams, a double in 
the first inning. In the final game 
of the .series and of Williams 
southern trip, Pfeiffer touched 
Whitney and Gratwick for 10 hits 
in defeating Williams U-l. Bill 
Hedeman led Williams 6 hit attack 
with a triple. 

Coombs summarized the Wil- 
liams .showing as pretty good field- 
ing and hitting, and pitching at 
times good, with control problems 
being the biggest problem. 

iit;lil\' touted attack 
'lord, steady inidd'eld play, and 
ever improving defense, completed 
a successful southern trip, high- 
lighted by a strong showing against 
the powerful Johns Hopkins ten. 
With the spirit high, the team in 
excellent shape, and four returning

W and L First Victim 

The Ephmen first took the field 
against Washington and Lee 
March 24, dominating the scrim- 
mage with a 12-4 victory. For the 
fii'st day. the team showed excel- 
lent ball control, while Bill Miller 
distinguished himself, netting 5 

The next day Williams traveled 
to the University of Virginia where 
they by a 13-12 score. 
Although their conditioning was 
certainly superior, the team suf- 
fered from lack of practice time 
and fell behind in the first half 
8-5. Despite an excellent second 
half effort, which featured 5 shots 
from the crease in the last minute 
of play, the Purple couldn't even 
the count. George Boynton, Nick 
Ratcliffe, and Rog Dankmeyer all 
had three goals, while Fred Ducey, 
showing perhaps the greatest in- 
dividual improvement from last 
year, turned in a good performance

Effective Against Hopkins 

Friday. March 27 Williams faced 
perhaps the country's top 
power in an unofficial three period 
scrimmage. Although no statistics 
were taken. Coach McHenry's men 
proved they could handle the ball 
and score effectively against the 
best of competition. Moreover the 
experience gained was of the great- 
est value. 

On a cold Saturday morning that 
made stick handling difficult, the 
lacrosse team finished up their 
conquest of the .south by beating 
Washington College 10-5. Despite 
the poor weather conditions, Ge- 
orge Boynton tallied four times, 
and the team in general gained 
valuable playing time. 

McHenry Pleased 

Coach Bill McHenry was plea.sed 
with the spirit and hustle displayed 
all through the trip, and notes 
the steady improvement at the one 
weakness, the defense. The return 
of Dick Jackson, a starter last year, 
who didn't make the trip, will be a 
great help at this position. Cap- 
lain Jock Jankey remains a stal- 
wart in the nets, continually com- 
ing up with the big ones and clear- 
ing well.

Uncultured Yale Called 
Potential Trouble Spot 

by Al Oehrlc 

Prom all reports, the Yale-Ivy 
Party which was to have been held 
at New Haven last weekend was 
non-existent. The RECORD had 
previously published a letter from 
New Haven heralding the affair as 
"one of the most stupendous 
Spring celebrations known in the 
history of Western education. 

This hoax is almost comparable 
to the myth of the mature Yale 
student. The subversive activity on 
the Yale campus and in the New 
Haven Community which has oc- 
cured as a result of the St. Pat- 
rick's Day disturbance has shown 
no indication of diminishing. As 
an aftermath of that riot, only 4 
students have been suspended, but 
41 have been arraigned by the 
tough New Haven police force. 
Meanwhile, the University is ac- 

cepting faculty and parental con- 
tributions to defray the legal ex- 
penses incurred by the fearless 41. 
The four checks received to date 
have totaled $219. 

Yalies Assaulted 

Other activity by the members 
of the city's younger set has re- 
sulted in the assault of an unde- 
terminable number of Yalies. The 
cause of these attacks was, accord- 
ing to one of the victims, "definite- 
ly the result of prejudice against 
the Yale students." 

The students have not given up 
yet, though. According to a very 
reliable source, an en masse toilet 
flush was to have been executed in 
much the same fashion as the fam- 
ous West Point episode of three 
decades ago which produced an ex- 
tensive rupture of that institution's 
disposal system. However, the Yale

Aldous Huxley's recent reapprai- 
sal of the future of our civilization 
concerns matters which are of vi- 
tal importance to the thoughtful 
student in today's world. Brave 
New World Revisited finds Huxley 
shocked and afraid to find so many 
of the dire prophecies that he 
made in 1932 and envisaged as oc- 
curing in 600 years are real and 
present dangers only 27 years later. 
Point by Point Analysis 

In the original Brave New World 
Huxley created a society where ar- 
tificial reproduction, Pavlonian 
psychology, new drugs, and the art 
of propaganda had convinced ev- 
eryone that they were truly hap- 
py. This year's reappraisal finds 
Huxley going through a fascinating 
point by point analysis and dem- 
onstrating that in many aspects of 
the communications, ad.'ertising, 
and medical research fields the 
methods for creating such a society 
are readily available. 

These realizations are as chal- 
lenging as they are terrifying and 
present a real problem of decision 
to every reader of the essay. If 

Huxley's thesis are accepted, and 
most of them are indisputable, g 
very present danger is seen iin^ 
the reader must accept his re.spon- 
sibility as a force which can move 
either toward or away from this 
Brave New 'World. 

Some Answers 
Huxley in his last two chapters 
presents some constructive an; \ers 
to the problems he has raised His 
answer to this problem is one i hat 
characterizes the whole str;; :|>ip 
for survival: "The value, fir of 
all, individual freedom, based ; Don 
the facts of human diversity md 
genetic uniqueness; the vahi< of 
charity and compassion, based iip. 
on the old familiar fact, latel\ le- 
discovered by modern psychiati , _ 
the fact that, whatever their ii; n- 
tal and physical diversity, love as 
necessary to human beings as ; lod 
and shelter; and finally the v, !ue 
of intelligence, without love is im- 
potent and freedom unattainalili-." 
This convincing statement is -me 
of a thoughtful and dedicated a li- 
ter; his essay is a compelling wain- 
ing for all who ponder the fut ue 
of our race. 

New Sporting Good Store Opened; 
King's Package Store Refurnished 

The newest feature to be added 
to Spring Street is a sporting goods 
store. Owned and operated by Cal 
King, the store will specialize in 
hunting and fishing equipment. 
However, King ha.s many items 
connected with golf, tennis, base- 
ball, badmitton, etc. including 
sport clothing and other items 
connected with sporting goods. 


"During the 12 years I have 
worked on Spring Street," King 
said, "I have felt that something 
like this would go. More people 
hunt and fish than you would 
think. I realize that I need a va- 
riety of things to make it go and 
although I can't carry everything 
I'm carrying as much in a complete 
line as I can." 

King plans to use the store main- 
ly for displaying the items which 
he has in stock. He has additional 
storage space for duplicates of 
items. Squash and lacrosse equip- 
ment will be stocked for next year. 
Any items which King does not 
have, he plans to order. 

As to those who are interested in I 

hunting. King says that the gun- 
smith whom he is working wiUi, 
has been rated by hunting maga- 
zines to be one of the best in llie 
country and probably the best in 
the East. 

Package Store Redone 
King's Package Store, run by 
E.^rl King, has been recently ic- 
decorated. The improvements in- 
clude a new floor and better liglit- 
ing. King has also installed a new 
cooler to provide customers with 
cold beer. The cooler is constructed 
in such a position, according to 
King, that passers by can see the 
beer and, thus, buy more of it.

! Iiat to be successful, the corpor- 
■.r :on must show "a continuall.v

The Research Scientist 
With the constant profit- 
tMough-innovation motive in 
mmd, Gifford feels that "the re- 
.srarch scientist is in danger of be- 
coming an 'organization' man." He 
fi'i.'ls that business is short-sighted 
m its quest for innovation in that 

II wants results but is "unwilling 
U) recognize the new corporate 
piocedure necessary for the inven- 
tive attitude." 

Results Of Study 
While he is on leave this year, 
Gifford has been working with a 
.siiuill group of men from varied 
educational backgrounds and oc- 
cupations on the p.sychological an- 
al.vsis of inventive attitude. Re- 
sults of this study show that in this 
time of science and technology the 
research scientist must join the 
ranks of other professional men in 
a broad education, rather than an 
intensive study of one field of 
knowledge. He must have enough 
independence to escape becoming 
the slave of the organization.

Five Campused After 
Bennington Escapade 

A junior and four freshmen were 
confined to the campus for the 
i-emainder of the semester after 
a Discipline Committee meeting 
Monday. The penalty resulted from 
a .series of escapades in the town of 
Bennington. Vt.. Friday night last 
week during which a leligious fi- 
gure was stolen from the grounds 
ol the St. Joseph's Business School 
and later broken. 

One of the freshmen received the 
additional penalty of disciplinary 
probation of previous cam- 
pus restriction this fall. The five 
will be arraigned in Bennington 
District Court Monday. 

Names Not Released 

Names of the five involved were 
not released by the Dean in line 
with a long standing policy of min- 
imizing the extraneous consequen- 
ces of disciplinary action. 

By .Fohn Good 

Yale's Thomas Corwin Menden- 
hall took what he termed "the his- 
torian's running jump" at the 
question "A Liberal Education, 
What For'.'" as guest speaker for 
the Sterling Memorial Fund, Wed- 

"The purpos:^ of education at a 
collega like Williams." said Men- 
denhall, "is to develop the work- 
ings of the mind." The of 
I sLudy in a major, he explained, is 
es.sentially a discipline in which 
to develop the mind. 

"In order to derive the benefits 
of pursuing a discipline deeply, sa- 
vouring the excitement of an intel- 
lectual adventure," he went on, 
"the student must be highly moti- 
vated in liis chosen field. A student 
must want to search beyond his 
course; he must develop his disci- 
pline for himself." In selecting his 
major, therefore, the student 
should rely on the motivation fac- 
tor and not on the value of the ma- 
jor in a future vocation. 

The aims of education, Menden- 
hall said, elude definition because 
of a "confusion of purpose" in the 
minds of Americans. He explained 
that tlie American attitude toward.s 
education, the differing education- 
al philosophies, and two distinct 
background influences have led to 
this confusion. 

American attitudes about educa- 
tion range fiom ideas that the Am- 
erican university must prepare a 
man for a vocation to ideas which 
look upon the university as a 
source of entertainment such as 
through its football team. 

Philosophical Differences 

The basic philosophical differ- 
ence stems from the American 
egalitarian idea that a college ed- 
ucation must be offered to every- 
one as opposed to the view that 
only the most able must be educa- 

The differences in heritage cited 
by Mendenhall were the continen- 
tal tradition that education must 
be oriented toward a profession, 
and the English tradition of pre- 
paring young men for a purpose- 
ful life.

By Ted Castle 

To most of us, T. C. Mendenhall 
was only the chief editor of a book 
we read in European history fresh- 
man year. A couple of months ago 
we heard that he had been named 
president of Smith College, an in- 
stitution in which many Williams 
men have a vested interest. "Re- 
member those footnotes!" a num- 
ber of people exclaimed, flipping 
through the "Times" to find the 
sports pages. 

"Today, we're fatally diluting 
the product of higher education. 
Every child is born with the mak- 
ings of a college diploma in its 
little fist. The problem in liberal 
education is that of quality versus 
quantity. We must insist on qua- 
lity." With these remarks, the 49- 
,vear old professor of history from 
Yale began a three day visit with 
Williams College Wednesday night. 
Much of what he said might have 
been expected from any noted his- 
torian actively committed to indi- 
vidual education In liberal arts. 
Today when Williams is facing, 
according to many, the problem 
of obsolescence in terms of the 
number of young people to be 
trained, we need to listen to what 

he has to say. 

For example ; 

- the relation of vocation to li- 
beral education is never direct, 

- history is the movement of 
human life through time, and as 
Carl Becker said, it is things re- 
membered about the past. 

- time seems to be rendering 


freshmen more heterogeneous . . . 
we have to take the polished man 
from the best prep school along 
with the shoeless wonder from 
some high schools ... if you can't 
interest them all in the first two 
years, they're lost. 

- teachers sometimes forget to 
remind their students before grad- 
uation that all of our knowledge 
is only a small part of history, they 
may think that history is what 
Scott or somebody says it is. 

- the course system in the last 
two years may be Inhibiting. 

- sports are a good thing to be 
done even badly . . . you see some of 
the mid-western universities breed- 
ing a nation of spectators. 

- in academic life, vacation is 
not nearly as important as variety. 

- Becker didn't seem to be a 
very impressive man: he looked 
more like Harry Truman, really. 

an historian should never get 
into an argument with a philoso- 
pher about the definition of fact. 

- students are in a certain po- 
sition — not .slavery or anything of 
that sort — which implies a kind of 
responsibility to the academic 

- student newspapers either try 
to expose a scandal in the grounds 
department like Hearst in New 
York or they crusade for the in- 
dependance of Cambodia. 

- times are right for a move by 
an institution in the direction of 
more individual study. 

- as Master of Berkley College 
I'm sort of a decentralized dean . . . 
glorified housemother with a great 
deal of guidance work.

got a number of people thinking 
about a great range of problems In 
education. The big man with a 
plaid shirt and varicolored hand- 
kerchief may have started a reaf-

our sort of education; we collect

a poll in Adams last 
on leadiiif^ iiolitical 
and the 
the ma- 
jor topics considered. 

Kennedy Favored 

In the 1960 presidential elec- 
tions Senator Kennedy is the un- 
animous choice of those interview- 
ed: 79 per cent favored Kennedy 
over Nixon and 76 per cent favored 
Kennedy over Rockefellar. This is 
to be expected since Kennedy is 
the "favorite son", and Adams is 
Democratic and predominantly Ca- 

70 per cent were in favor of 
keeping U. S. soldiers in Berlin ev- 
en at the cost of war with Russia. 
Adams showed a liberal view to- 
wards the integration of whites and 
Negroes in schools. 89 per cent were 
pro-integration while only 6 per 
cent were opposed. 

The people interviewed repre- 
sented as ti'ue a cross-section of 
the Adams' population as po.ssible. 
Adams, however, falls below the 
national level of public informa- 
tion. Certain questions on the poll 
aimed at determining how well- 
informed the people it interviews 

The Course 

One of Poll. Sci. lO's mem- 
bers. John Greer '59 said of the 
poll, 'it is a form of studying social 
psychology in a scientific atti- 
tude". Professor Hastings remark- 
ed, "Tire general purpose of the 
poll is educational. It gives the stu- 
dents an opportunity to partici- 
pate in research and to place 
themselves directly in the field of 
political science." 

Fox And Verville 
Elected By JA's 

The recently chosen Junior Ad- 
visers held a meeting Tuesday 
night and elected Tom Fox as their 
president and Dick Verville vice 

At this early date Pox has not 
yet outlined a definite program, 
but he did comment that this 
group of thirty JA's has the po- 
tential to more than uphold the 
fine traditions of the organization. 
He also stressed the heavy respon- 
sibility shared by each member, 
and the need for each JA to con- 
duct himself throughout the en- 
tire school year according to the 
high standards expected of a Wil- 
liams man. He noted that this was 
especially true since the freshmen 
often pattern themselves after the 
example set by these juniors. 
Heavy Duties 

Among other things. Fox's du- 
ties will include serving as presi- 
dent of the Freshman Council un- 
til permanent officers are elected 
in the spring, as well as being a 
representative on the College 
Council, the Honor System Com- 
mittee, and the Student Discipli- 
nary Committee. He will also be 
called upon to speak at the Orien- 
tation Week banquet and fresh- 
man Parents Day.

Life of the mind 

Culturally, this week at Williams College wiis 

The Lecture Committee brought us an extremely 
erudite lecture by Ervvin Panofsky Monday 
night which was a great educational ex])erience 
for the large audience. 

Don Gitford, one of the most popular teachers 
on cam]Dus, fascinated a smaller audience Tues- 
day in a talk on his activities as an ex))ert on in- 
dustrial innovation, 

Wednesday and Thursday, the Sterling Fund pre- 
sented T. C. Mendenhall of Yale, an educator 
who has contributed a great deal to the revolu- 
tion in the teaching of history in colleges, in- 
cluding Williams. 

Friday, Tom Griswold ]3resented a concert of 
piano works in Chapin with his usual sjiirit and 
outstanding tcchnic|iie. 

The Adams Memorial Theatre provided a crown- 
ing achie\'ement in its production of Darkness 
At Noon, a play which has great a))|oeal for a 
student audience. Giles Playfair also made a 
rare a]D]X'arance as an actor. 
Nobody paid admission to any of these e\'ents, 
all of which proved more than rewarding to 
those who attended. The events of the week 
show, to an extent, that all interest in the life 
of the mind has not completely died at Wil- 


Mendenhall's Challenge 

Thomas C. Mendenhall of Yale exijlained his 
views on the purpose of a liberal education in 
Wednesday night's discussion sponsored by the 
Sterling Fund. 

Liberal education, he postulated, seeks to "de- 
velop the workings of the mind," The mind is 
developed, he says, by developing it in a dis- 
ciijline, the major course of study. 
The develo]5ment of the mind, however, depends 
u]5on the response from the individual subject 
to the stimulation of education. The student must 
rise to Mendenhall's final challenge, he must 
"go beyond the course." 



The draft now exists to fill the jiersonnel 
needs of the Army. The other services fill their 
enlisted ranks with \oluiiteers. Nearly 70% of 
the Army's enlisted men are in for only two years 
or less. The Army is a catch-all, and its efficien- 
cy reflects this \ery clearly. 

Washington asserts that we must maintain 
ground forces; that we must have the infantry 
to take to tiie high ground and hold it. Because 
of the present relative undesirability of the Army, 
we must have the draft to fio>ld our fifteen divi- 
sions. Thus the draft is justified on ]Draetical 

The newly inducted draftee soon learns the 
ropes. He learns to watch out for Number One, 
He sensibly cleveio]js a sixth sense which allows 
him to avoid details. He realizes that the inef- 
ficient organization of which he is unwillingly 
a part will not iin|5rove if he takes to heart the 
adolescent a]i]3eals to espirit de corps. He sheds 
most of the Smokey-the-Bear group resjionsibility 
which was inculcated in him during liis forma- 
tive years. If he is a crusader, he does all he can 
to subvert the futile aspects of military activity by 
making them a]oi)ear e\en more ludicrous. He be- 
comes, in contemporary jargon, a negatively mo- 
tivated individual. 

The public does not realize that this is 
the condition of the forces on which it depends 
to somehow keep the Russians and Chinamen 
on their side of the curtain. 

A hitchhiking GI in North Carolina recent- 
ly offered an interesting anecdote which illus- 
trates how the Army is "ready" with its drafted 
l^rotectors of the peace. This PFC is a member 
of the coniinunications platoon of an artillery 
battery which is part of one of the few outfits 
groomed to be sent to any part of the world 
on a moment's notice, in three hours his pla- 
toon is supjjosed to set up die battery's commun- 
ications. Instead of liis platoon's authorized thii- 
ty-four men it has four assigned. He said that it 
miglit take them days to do their job. Even in 
such a crack outfit this type of organization is 
f|uite typical. 

The fuzzy goal of national preparedness based 
on such organizations is heartily ]jerpetuated. It 
is the excuse for the draft. Y'et it is not working. 
And the avoidistic draftee's unhealthy presence 
in the peacetime Army does much to increase 
the bleakness of the ]5ieture. D. E. Steward

Amherst Report II 

By Ted Castle 

Present Amherst College under- 
graduates exhibit a widespread de- 
gree of "non-conformity" in then- 
personal conduct, probably aris- 
ing from a rather vague dissatis- 
faction with the life they ai'e lead- 
ing, which manifests itself in feel- 
ing. A large number of them would 
like to go out and find out about 
"life." Many others have a sort of 
general feeling about "not getting

for a feeling of achievement 'in pro- 
test. The huge storm raised two 
years agro when it was sugrgested 
that students wear a coat and vie 
to one evening meal a week, dem- 
onstrates that this rebellion is not 
new at Amherst; the recent out 
break of spontaneous fist fights on 
almost no provocation indicates a 
continuing dissatisfaction which 
even makes the combatants wonder 
afterwards about the causes. 

The rebel is part of Williams 
but large groups at Amherst are 
composed of people who are plan- 
ning to fly to Tahiti, for instance.

ing trouble coming up with the 
ball, and when they did, couldn't 
capitalize on their shots, taking 41 
in the course of the game. 24 of 
these missed the cage. 

The Purple turned on the steam 
in the final frame, led again by 
Boynton and Ratcliffe, with two 
goals and two assists respectively. 
Although maintaining control, 
Williams failed to score in the last 
six minutes. 

Perhaps the best indication of 
the team's performance is the 
faceoff, at which Williams could 
control only three of the first ten, 
while taking all of the last eight.

Brown Professor 
Involves Himself 
In Football Row 

By Stu Davis 

Should football be abolished? 
Wade Thompson, English prof at 
staid Brown University, suggested 
it should in a small, nonsensical 
classified ad in which he asked 
anyone interested to sign a non- 
existent anti-football petition. 

Poor Thompson expected little 
or no reaction, but when the paper 
gave him a front page splash he 
was forced to defend his views. In 
a serious debate with director of 
athletics Paul Mackesey, Thomp- 
son .said what he opposed was the 
"sanctification of football". He 
.said, "Football doesn't build char- 
acter any more than tennis does, 
or chess. It is no substitute for mo- 
therhood ... It has been choked 
with cliches, mired in sentimental 
mush, drowned in tears and flap- 
doodle, until no football coach can 
go from one job to another without 
more idiotic fanfare than that 
which will accompany the Second 

Football Is Good 

Mackesey severely rebutted 
Thompson by defending Brown's 
participation in the low pressure, 
"amateur" Ivy League. He said, 
"If athletics does not make a sen- 
sible and sound contribution to ed- 
ucation as we understand it, then 
there is no justification for it in 
our college program . . . Only those 
who have viewed education nar- 
rowly, with one eye, have consid- 
ered that scholarship alone is 
enough to make the whole 
man ..." 

And now it is supposed one may — is the well-recruited, power- 
ful squad that Williams fields each 
year worth while? It seems so, as 
it provides such a boost to school 
spirit las well as "football week- 
ends"), but if anyone wants to

Standing next to the shot put 
circle on Weston Field you can 
hear Tony Plansky say in his Bos- 
ton accent "You can't do it that 
way. You have to get your body be- 
hind it and send it off at 35 de- 
grees. Wait a minute, boys, let this 
competitor put one more." 

The trackmen of Williams have 
been hearing this jargon around 
the track for the past twenty-eiglil 
years. With his grey topcoat and 
brown felt hat he can be seen at 
almost any part of the field giv- 
ing out some of his vast store of 
knowledge of track and field sports. 

Coach Plansky can help all of 
his "athletes" because of his abili- 
ty to pei-form in so many events 
himself. His wealth of hints and 
techniques was acquired during his 
fantastic college career. 

National Decathlon Champion 

While at Georgetown University 
he was twice the National Decath- 
lon Champion and he repeated this 
feat once more after his college 
days. In 1925 lie won the Penn 
Relays Decathlon Championship 
by winning the 100 meters, the jav- i 
elin and the shot put and scoring 
heavily in the other seven events. 
In 1926 he repeated this victory 
and two years later came back to 
.score a record 7,169 points, Plan- 
sky ran the 100 yard dash in 10 
seconds flat, put the shot 49 feet 
and broad jumped 23' 6". His speed 
coupled with his size made him an 
excellent full back, and he played 
this position at Georgetown for 
four years. 

Professional Career 

After his college career Plansky 
turned to professional athletics. 
He played football for the New 
York Giants for two years. He also 
played professional baseball for 

Harsh Winter Frosts 
Curtail Golf & Tennis 

Five feet of underground frost 
coupled with the recent rainy wea- 
ther have caused virtual curtail- 
ment of golf and tennis activity 
in Williamstown so far this spring. 

Coach Clarence Chaffee hopes, 
with the aid of the weather, to 
have the courts ready for varsity 
play next week. Physical training 
classes, however, will probably not 
be able to initiate tennis play until 
the first of May. 

Golf coach Dick Baxter hopes to 
have at least a few holes open by 
the middle of next week. Members 
of the varsity squad have been 
allowed to hit practice shots along 
the fairways, but the greens are 
unplayable. Baxter described the 
frost and recent weather as the 
worst in recent history. He could 
not forecast when P. T. activity 
would be commenced, but express- 
ed the hope that it would be soon. 

While ground conditions remain 
unsatisfactory, P. T. classes are 
concentrating on squash, volley- 
ball and basketball. 

3-time Decathlon Champ 

Scranton of the New York - Penn- 
sylvania league. In 1930 he came 
to Williams. 


In his spare time you may find 
Plansky playing the 18 holes of 
the Taconic Golf Course with only 
a wood, an iron and his putter 
and still scoring in the low 70's, Or 
you may find him swimming or on 
the tennis courts or even in the 
squash courts showing a varsity 
player a subtle point or two. 

Since 1930 Plansky has coached 
the varsity and freshmen cross 
country teams, the winter relay 
team and the varsity and fresh- 
men track teams. 

Trackmen Win 50 

His Track teams have won 50 
dual meets while losing only 34 
in his 28 year stay. Last year his 
varsity team compiled an unde- 
feated record and placed third in 
the Easterns; they also brought 
him his sixth Little Three Champ- 


One of the highlights of Plan- 
sky's career came two years ago in 
Madison Square Garden. At the 
1957 IC4A games he received a 
special coaches award for his "out- 
standing adherence to the Principle 
of good sportsmanship." This a- 
ward aptly states his contributions 
to the world of sports and to Wil- 
liams College.

The AMT Thursday evening was 
the scene of Sidney Kingsley's 
Darkness At Noon, directed by Bob

The only thing wrong is that the

Director Mathews, who also han- 
dled the role of Ivanov, manipu- 
lated the tragic and brutal ele- 
ments of a difficult play in step 
with a talented cast. It is a chal- 
lenging task to keep three acts of 
about half dozen scenes each in a 
martial tempo, and at the same 
time induce the players to a con- 
stant but unpredictable rising and 
■swelling of emotion. This has been 

Playfair's Rubashov, certainly 
the focal character in just about 
every scene, was a person with the 
intelligence and satirical invective 
called for. He was proud, cruel, 
tender and bowed at the many var- 
ied points which marl^-ed his past 
and present leading ultimately to 
the onslaught on liis dignity. Mr. 
Playfair did not have special mo- 
ments because his effort was one 
of a sustained nature, from the toss 
into cell 400 to the walk up the 
ramp behind the cocked pistol of 

The story involves the last days 
of Citizen Rubishov, and Old 
Guard leader in the totalitarian 
system who has fallen out of favor. 
His life is marked from the open- 
ing of Act One, but his career in 
the Odyssey of the Party is marked 
by remini-scent flashbacks and 
gradual capitulation to the System. 
The Neanderthal Gletkin is the

ceeds in breaking Rubishov down.

Compton Discusses Need For Public Understanding 
Oi Problems And Concepts In Modern Chemistry 


By Paul Samuelson 

His portrait having been snap- 
ped for The RECORD, Professor 
Cl,arles D. Compton of the Wil- 
liams chemistry department turned 
in Ills .swivel-chair back toward 
Ins desk. His characteristically 
iiii.srhievous smile subsided as he 
mulled the question put to him 
concerning liis evaluation of sci- 
ence in a liberal arts education. 

After a few pensive moments he 
benan: "Science i.s a leading intel- 
lectual force in the world today. 
"I'o the Inquiring non-scientist any 
and all science has a dual value. 
'11 le general worth of the study of 
science lies in clearing up some of 
tlie mysteries and misunderstand- 
inis that puzzle and beset the lay- 
man. The peerless precision of sci- 
entific study is also valuable as a 
ri orous and unique intellectual 

On the other hand it is im- 
pi>rlanl to the scientist", Comp- 
I'ln continued, "that the public at 
large understand science and the 
processes involved in scientific in- 
novation. The public supports the 
scientist. He must communicate to 
them. Furthermore, for greater 
coinmunicability in education, the 
scientist should put most of his em- 
phasis on fundamental ideas". 
Content of Chemistry 1-2 

He reached over to the left hand 
side of his desk and picked up two 
books; one a handsome bright red 
volume entitled, fundamentally e- 
'Wiigh, "An Introduction to Chem- 
'stry" by Charles D. Compton. The 
second was the "Journal of Chem- 
ical Education". He ran his fore- 
finger down the Table of Contents 
of the red book used In chemistry 
1-2, pointing to such basic topics 
as the Structure of Matter and 
Chemical Equilibrium. 

"As you can see the emphasis 

"Whiskey without a hangover" 

is on as broad a range of funda- 
mental ideas of chemistry as is 
possible to teach in a one-year 
course. It is specifically geared to 
the non-scientists. It is not a wa- 
tered down 1A-2A. From 1-2 we 
expect that the student will re- 
tain a favorable and somewhat so- 
phisticated attitude toward science 
and the world about him". A full 
one third of the text deals with 
organic chemistry and its applica- 
tion in food and medicine. 

Asked about the reception of the 
book, published in 1958, he reluc- 
tantly opened the "Journal of 
Chemical Education" to a lengthy 
review of the book which com- 
mends the work highly. He added 
that the text is now being used m 
25 colleges. 

He hesitated when asked about 
the feasibility of inter-departmen- 

tal science courses. "It would cer- 
tainly be good to have inter-de- 
partmental courses. But courses to 
be valuable should be delved into 
and this takes time on each indi- 
vidual concept. Chemistry itself is 
an overwhelmingly large area. I 
don't think it would be feasible" 
Sputnik Challenge 

To the question of the ability 
of today's science graduate to meet 
and vanquish the Soviet "Sput- 
nik Challenge" Compton replied 
"A person receiving a PhD from a 
good American school such as Har- 
vard or M.I.T. is well qualified to 
help meet the Soviet challenge. The 
question of whether w'e are pro- 
ducing enougli is always a tough 
one to answer. What we do need is 
quality. And it is the faculty in 
any institution which must main- 
tain standards." 

"One final question, sir". 

"Do you have any future hair- 
brained schemes up your sleeve; 
you know, the kind scientists are 
noted for?" 

He thought a moment, one eye- 
brow upraised quizzically. His pi- 
quant smile returned. "Whiskey 
with no hangover." 

mented. However, they all agreed 
that the present system was '■ex- 
tremely impersonal". At Middle- 
bury the fraternities are allowed 
to "communicate" with the rushees 
on the subject of the latter's stand- 
ing with the house. 

■■Although we did not come here 
to criticize but to inspect, we have 
noted that at Williams more peo- 
ple drop out of houses than at 
Middlebury. As of yet no one has 
dropped out of a house this year, 
and there was only one such case 
last year". 

llushnig Al Middlebury 

The rushing system at Middle- 
bury provides for periods similar to 
those at Williams in which a rush- 
ee must go to a specified liouse at 
a certain time. After these, how- 
ever, the rushee can visit any of his choosing between the 
hours of 7 and 9 p.m. Upperclass- 
men may also visit the rushee in 
his room and all are allowed to 
discuss their opinions of the hous- 
es. After this a house can extend 
a bid to a rushee which he may 
refuse or make a ■■verbal commit- 
ment", i.e. an understanding be- 
tween liim and the house that he 
will accept the bid. However, this 
is not final and the rushee may 
break his commitments before 
rushing is over, although a fra- 
ternity may not.

to provide continuous music on 
three floors of the Student Union. 

Aiming to eliminate the conges- 
tion that has plagued previous 
dances and to provide a varied mu- 
sical fare, the weekend committee 
feels that the new arrangement 
will provide a freer and pleasanter 
atmosphere for the dance. 

The committee arrived at the 
plan after agreeing that some stu- 
dents in the past have avoided the 
dance because of the crowded 
conditions which usually prevail. 
"Non Scquitor" 

Sharing the .spotlight with the 
spring dance will be the annual 
All-college Revue, '■Non Sequitor." 
Written and produced by Williams 
undergraduates, the Broadway- 
like production will feature Ben- 
nington and Williams students ex- 
clusively. Curtain time on Friday 
will be early to permit theater- 
goers to attend the dance, and the 
college musical will replace tlie us- 
ual Saturday night entertainment 
in Chapin Hall. 

New Paramount Plan 
Lessens Leg Cramps 

Long-legged students are now 
guaranteed more enjoyment of mo- 
vies at North Adams' Paramount 
Theatre. Pour rows of seats have 
been removed from different parts 
of the theater in order to provide 
greater leg-room for those sitting. 

"We noticed", said Assistant 
Manager Valotta, "that many peo- 
ple with long legs, especially Wil- 
liams students, were uncomfortable 
in the theatre. Now, when they 
come in they can stretch their legs 
and feel comfortable." 

Youth Conference 

churches in the Northern Berk- 
shires attended a conference 
held at the Williamstown Con- 
gregational last weekend. Noel 
Yeh, 'Warner Kim, Abdul Wo- 
habe, and Gerhard Fritz, Wil- 
liams foreign exchange students 
participated as members of 
a panel presided over by Jerry 
Rardin. Norm Cram, Dave Hall, 
Rich Warch, and Ron Stegall, 
served as leaders of workshop 

Two Questionnaires Being Evaluated 
By Student Curriculum Committee 

The Student Curriculum Committee, under the chairman- 
shi|) of Al Donovan, has distributed two (]uestionnaires this sem- 
ester for the |)ur|5ose of ohtaininK a student evaluation of the 
courses and the course system at Williams. 

The first questionnaire, distri- 
buted to the Freshman class, deals 
with an evaluation of the intellec- 
tual stimulation of the courses the 
Freshmen are now taking. It was 
also intended to solicit an analysis 
of Freshman interest in the courses 
which are offered to the frosh. 

Trends of Opinion 

The questionnaire, which is now 
under examination in preparation 
for a full report to be released soon 
by the committee, has shown some 
definite trends in opinion. A num- 
ber of Freshmen pointed out that 
they felt that under a four-course 
system, or a three course-three 
semester system such as is offered 
at Dartmouth, they could devote 
more time to each course without 
any one course suffering. 

The second questionnaire, dis- 
tributed to the Class of '61 through 
the Sophomore Council, was sent 
out to gain information relating to 
possible changes in the curriculum 
now under study by both the Stu- 
dent and Faculty Curriculum Com- 
mittees. The sophomores were ask- 
ed what courses they have chosen 
for next year and which one they 
would drop if Williams 'were to 
change to a four course system. 

College Council Plans 
Current News Debate 

A current affau's conference is 
being tentatively planned for a 
weekend next fall. Chairman of the 
Current Affairs Committee Les 
Tliurow has commented. "We want 
to get two men with opposing views 
who will goad each other into say- 
ing something important." 

The Current Affairs Committee 
was formed last year by the Col- 
lege Council in hopes of setting up 
a conference this past fall. They 
were unable to accomplish this due 
to a conflict with the science col- 
loquium. Men considered as parti- 
cipants last year were Under Sec- 
retary of State George Dillon and 
Harvard Professor Henry Kissin- 


Chairman Thurow will lay the 
final plans for the conference when 
he is in Washington this summer 
on a Mead fund grant. Other mem- 
bers of the committee are Stu 
Smith '60, Ben Campbell '61, Jim 
Langham '61, Steve Cohen '62, and 
John Reld '62.

The dele)»ation from Middlehury tliink.s the Wil- 
liams nishinjf system is too impersonal. 

At Middlehury there is eoininunication hetvveen 
riishee and fraternity. A house can say it wants 
to pledi^c a man and the rushee can reciprocate. 
This conunnnication is dirty rushing at Williams 
aceorcliiii^ to the rushing agreement. It is diffi- 
cult to justify the rationale hehind the rule. 

Non-communication allegedly prevents disaj)- 

E ointment on the )3art of the sophomore when 
e goes through a luimher of houses without 
being ap])roached to join. In our ss'stein, rushees 
may find that the house in which thev are in- 
terested have not bid them only after i)ledge din- 
ner invitations are out. Often the reason they 
ha\'e not gotten a bid they consider "good" is 
because the house of tlu'ir choice was unaware 
of their preference. The Williams system does 
not prevent disa])i3ointinent, it merely postpones 

A second reason for non-communication is to 
keep all houses on the same basis during rush- 
ing. It is believed that if a house has a definite 
number of pledges early in the rushing period, it 
thereby gains an ad\antage o\'er other houses 
not so fortunate in the beginning. What sort of 
advantage is not clear. 

Even if in some measure the non-communication 
rule aceoniplishes its aims, it makes a blind gues- 
sing game of a system which must be based on 
enlightened |5reference. 

The Rushing Committee of the College Council 
is currently preparing the rushing agreement for 
ne.xt fall. Past committees have generally refused 
to embrace changes which may alter somewhat 
the nature of the system. They have preferred 
rather to adjust the present mechanics one way 
or another to make it more "efficient." 

The result is a highly contrived means which at- 
tempts to sterilize a basically "unfair-" situation 
of preference — the system classifies as illegal 
the responsibility which u|)perelassmen feel 
toward their friends who are rushees to tell the 
sophomores where they stand. 

Student opinion today is amendable to a change 
of this sort in the ru.shing system; the committee 
should not a\()id consideration of these problems. 


Baxter Hall 

Ba.xter Hall was built five years ago with two 
large room-hallways known as the freshman 
lounge and the upperclass lounge. Until this 
year, nobody knew (|uite what to do in the 
freshman lounge — it was mostly a huge fur- 
ni.shetl cloakroom during meals upstairs. 

The addition of a ]^honograph and records do- 
nated by the parents of Tom Mares '60 
chaiif^ed everything. Today, at almost any 
hour, freshmen gather in the room to listen 
to the small but varied collection of music. To 
an npperclassman it is almost shocking to sec 
something happening in the long vacant 
room; but the surprise is pleasant. 







Qifif of 'OiBlindion 


Heading about the current proposal for a change 
ill the examination schedule brings to mind some- 
thing else about the academic side ol Williams 
College. It is a fact that o\cr the past twentv or 
thirty years the work load has increased tre- 
mendously. The ob\'ious disatkantiige of this, in 
the mind of the a\erage student, i.s that hi' has 
to work far too hard to attain his degree. But a 
far more im|5ortant disadvantage is the lack of 
time for corollary reading that this <le\('lopment 

This does not in the least im])ly that the work 
load should be lightened in each course to allow 
lor outside reading. The most feasible place for 
pursuing personal interests is in the Honors 
Program. Insteail of having oidv two routes to 
d degree with honors, a third more e.xclnsive al- 
ternati\ f might be established. Why could one 
not obtain his honors degree by drawing u]) an 
i'dornial course of study widi the helji of an in- 
stnietor and, at the end of his senior year, take 
a written and/or oral examination on the gi\en 
area ol his study? 

This sort of program has been adopted by schools 
like Yale and Dartmouth to give a limited num- 
ber of seniors an opportunity to work com|)letely 
on their own wiUiout courses, without depart- 
ments, without i^ressure. It is certainly worth 
further thought. 

— wheeloek 


The void between perception and realitv in 
human existence is unavoidable. All of us s])eak 
in terms of facts, that "we're sure" of things — 
yet we are all sure of different things. We all 
torm our personal mental picture of anything 
which is percei\'ed by us. 

Whdt a person believes he perceives is the 
important consideration here. It is the reason for 
every conflict in human relations and at the 
same time it is responsible for nearly every re- 
warding human experience ... It would be a 
\ery dull world if everyone did not create his 
own imjiressions of his every physical and intel- 
lectual exj^erience. 

The only cpialifications which allows har- 
mony between humans is mutual toleration. A 
tinelv develo|)ed tolerant sense for a fellowman's 
im|5ressions is the mark of the adult. It is the 
condition which allows society to function. 

Society is complicated in the name of in- 
di\iduality. Complicated credos have been writ- 
ten to justify such a stand. This position is tra- 
ditional for the artist and the anarchist. Their 
common argument is that if a man bends to so- 
ciety, indi\iduality is lost; that he is wasting 
himself; that he is betraying his power as an in- 
dividual human being. Outsiders stoutly main- 
tain that nothing was ever aecomplfshed without 
someone rocking the boat. They are convinced 
that it is avdnt ffirdc to apply the shock treat- 
ment to "all those fools who'll never understand 

There is much to be said for this outsider po- 
sition. Any of us who have looked past our own 
noses have realized that to be a rebel with cause 
has great merit. If one, for a time, attempts to 
assume the status of an outsider and then aban- 
dons it, he is heartily criticized by his rebelling 
companions for "surrendering to society." 

But here is the genuinely valuable intelligent 
and/or creative man. He fully realizes his posi- 
tion as an individual human being, which im))lies 
considered awareness of those other human 
beings around him. If he must act in a discordant 
way he isolates himself. He does not go to the 
temple to pray in public. He is the happy man 
who has adjusted himself to his environment and 
pursues his own personal bents to dieir fullest. 
If be wants to write his novel in a coldwater flat 
he does so, hut he docs not expi^ct others to go to 
a coldwater flat to write theirs. 

T!ie ideal man is tolerant in the fullest sense 
of the word. No person is ever completely this 
ideal man, for all of us arc either deeply en- 
trenched among the "ins" or the outsiders, or we 
waver between. Yet, this ideal man's position is 
an enviable one, and one to aspire to.

Sewall '29 To Head 
Planned Yale College 

by Jeffrey F 
This interview with Richard 
from the .Ajiril 4 and 10 issues 
the first of a series of profiles ol 
recently designated Master of i 
at Yale.' 

When Ezra Stiles College even- 
tually reaches completion some two 
years from now, its first ma.ster 
will be a man with considerable 
experience in successfully ven- 
turing into new fields of education 
at Yale. Richard B. Sewall, asso- 
ciate professor of Engli-sh, has 
started an extremely popular new 
course and has participated in a 
major new program designed to 
encourage individual work among 
the most intelligent students. 

In the fall of 1947 after 18 years 
at Yale as graduate student and 
teacher, Sewall developed his now 
well-known course in English trag- 
edy, one of those courses which 
are popular as much because of the 
teacher as the content. "There is 
a great deal of confusion as stu- 
dents come face-to-face with the 
large and many-sided idea (of tra- 
gedy! but as the year goes on, clar- 
ity . . . begins to dawn. The stu- 
dents shape an idea towards tra- 
gedy of their own." 

Although he is more noted for 
his critical and scholarly essays. 
Sewall's latest book The Vision 
of Trascdy (Yale University 
out last month is selling briskly. 
Next year, he will take a leave of 
absence to work on a long-contem- 
plated biography of the 19th cen- 
tury poetess, Emily Dickinson. 

He considers himself "most ac- 
tive" in the Scholar of the 
program, of which lie is the chief 
adviser. He says it is "gathering 
tradition and momentum as one of 
the most promising things at Yale." 
The program "grew out of the cur- 
ricular planning of the mid-40's, 
the hiatus of Yale education." Un- 
der it. 12 to 15 juniors are cho.sen 
to spend their final year without 
courses, in no department, working 
individually on a project, some- 
times similar to the senior honors 
thesis. Every two weeks, the group 
meets to hear reports of progress

of the members and to criticise 
each other's work. As a "cultivation 
of excellence of an intellectual na- 
ture," Sewall clearly considers the 
program a success. 

Essential Vitality 
Sewall has gaine.1 a certain fame 
as an opponent of all txlra-cuni- 
cular accivil e.i. "I think they iJin- 
vide ess;.>ntial vitality to the Yale 
scene, but they are open to abu.scs, 
many of whicli I saw diu'ing my ca- 
reer in the Freshman Dean's of- 
fice." Although he considers his 
anti-extracurricular reputation to 
be exaggerated. "So often, before 
he knows it, a student has lost tlie 
precious freedom wliich these four 
years can give him. Here for the 
last time one is able t,o be detached, 
disinterested, dispassionate — or, 
such is the privilege of youth, as 
passionate as he chooses, and no 
one to say nay." 



What a happy man he would have been if 
his man Stanley could have brought along 
a carton of Coke! That cold crisp taste, 
that lively lift would certainly hit the spot 
with any tired explorer. In fact, after your 
next safari to class-wouldn't Coca-Cola 
taste good to you?

Amherst Report III: Fraternities 

by Ted Castle 

The most apparent difference 
between Amherst and Williams is 
clue to the virtual breakdown of 
the fraternity system. Although 
Jeffs would balk at this assertion, 
fraternities do not exist at Am- 
herst, excepting in possibly three Every student eats in one 
of three large dining halls in which 
all meals are conducted cafeteria 
style. The food is about the same 
quality as is served in our Baxter 
Hall iB-grade or .so) but is eaten 
out of steel trays which have in- 
ti;'ntalions for various foods. 

P.nv fraternities have arranged 
a time and place in the dining 
halls for meals. In the cases where 
there is a table, only some of 
the members eat with the house 
anyway. This is probably the great- 
est cause of the non-fraternity 
spirit at Air.her.^t. Three or four 
houses escape what they see to be 
the curse of don't-careism al- 
though the chaiacter of these hou- 
ses varies. It may be relevant that 
they are the only houses which

have an identity with any type of 
person. All of this minority have a 
high degree of internal coherence 
and pride. The other houses — 
there are eight national and five 
locals at Amherst — exhibit a high 
degree of sameness in the very di- 
versity of their members and tend 
to lack corporate character or 
"house spirit." Members of 
houses do not find that they have 
a great many friends in their own 
house, although more there than 
in any other one house. 

Even the houses with little house 
spirit pull together during the ex- 
remely hectic four-day rushing 
program conducted at the outset of 
spring holidays. Although popular- 
ly believed at Williams to be a 
"grab bag" non-.selective method 
of screening new members, the 
Amherst "drop" rushing system 
finds great approval among the 
students. Basically and simply, a 
freshman may accept a bid (drop) 
at any point during the first three 
or four rushing days after which 
the bidding is frozen. At this point 
about 80 per cent have pledged. 
Included among the remaining 20 
per cent are men who have been 
heavily rushed but who are unable 
to make up their minds— there is 
therefore no stigma attached to 
members of this "late" group. The 
rushing chairmen convene several 
times during the last thi'oes of 
rushing to hash out final bidding 
of the remaining freshmen. In sev- 
en successful years, this system has 
resulted in every rushee being bid. 

Although almost all of any class 
is initially in a house, there is in 
several houses a high mortality 
rate among the juniors and espec- 
ially in the senior delegations. 

Univ. Of Pennsylvania 
Announces Tuition Rise 

The University of Pennsylvania 
has announced tuition increases of 
$200 per year in the schools of 
Engineering, Liberal Arts, College 
for Women, Pine Arts and Whar- 
ton School of Commerce, it was 
reported in the Daily Pennsylvan- 
ian. These increases will bring 
costs of tuition and fees in the a- 
forementioned colleges of the Uni- 
versity to $1400 per annum. Ad- 
.iustment of the scholarship sti- 
pends has been provided for. 

Penn is the most recent example 
of the upward trend in the tui- 
tion costs of higher education in 
America, initiated by Princeton's 
rise to $1450 per year.

i'H^^H SOCIETY" i 


Cole Porter Music! 
ALSO! "High Cost Of Living" 

with Jose Ferrer 

Many men find the social rewards 
of a dormitory-like house to be 
small, others give up a fraternity 
as a sort of protest to the type of 
life they personally seem to be 
leading. That nothing is thought 
of those who quit is the surprising 
factor to the Williams observer. 
Each year, a small number of up- 
perclassmen leave Williams fra- 
ternities for varying reasons and 
with varying amounts of fanfare. 
Resignation is, however, regarded 
here as unusual — at Amherst It is 
taken for granted. 

Little Discrimination 
With individual exceptions, dis- 
crimination does not exist in 
even the most personal form at 
Amherst. Jewish men are well dis- 
tributed among all the houses and 
the five now permanently local 
houses have become so because of 
pledging a Negro man — others 
have pledged Negroes without los- 
ing national status. 

Amherst is becoming through 
admissions policy, curriculum di- 
rection and social organization a 
school of heterogeneous students 
whose common basis of association 
is a high level of intelligence. Al- 
though there is a good deal of dis- 
satisfaction arising from many 
causes, largely personal, the ma- 
jority of students are firmly com- 
mitted to their way of life. 
Saturday Kegs 
On Saturday night, the houses 
are permitted to tap a keg of beer 
at 7:30 p.m. As a sign of residual 
defiance of such arbiti'ary ad- 
ministrative policies, several hou- 
ses tap ritually at 7. That a large 
number of students can also be 
found in the library at seven does 
not concern the revelers who dance 
to the juke box and seldom feel 
moved to sing of Lord Jeffery.

Kelly's Open Cozy 
Corners Restaurant 

By Chip Black 

Home cooked food is the special- 
ty of Mr. & Mrs. Pat Kelly's new 
Cozy Corners Restaurant. The 
Kellys. former owners of Dairy 
Land on State Road, have a confi- 
dence and imagination that has 
already won them increasing ac- 


Mr. Kelly, a native of Williams- 
town, and his wife, born in North 
Adams, moved to their new loca- 
tion 1 and one half miles north of 
Williamstown because of a limited 
opportunity to expand at their for- 
mer headquarters. Mrs. Kelly is 
the chef, and according to her hus- 
band and customers, there is none 
better. Her husband will be aided 
in his general duties by a son re- 
turning from the Navy's Subma- 
rine Service in September. 

The Kellys have remodeled the 
restaurant formerly called Miu'- 
phy's. The building contains a din- 
ing room and a separate bar. The 
air-conditioned 11 -booth dining 
room is typical of the spotlessness 
which Mrs. Kelly insists on in her 
kitchen. Tlie restaurant can ac- 
commodate banquets and parties of 
all types. The Kellys also prepare 
banquets at churches, private 
homes, and the like. 

Culinary Expert 

The culinary art of Mrs. Kelly is 
not doubted in the least by this 
reporter. Homemade spaghetti, 
pies, delicious steaks, and many 
other specialties serve as conclu- 
sive proof. 

Future construction plans in- 
clude a new addition which will fa- 
cilitate after dinner dancing. The 
restaurant is closed Mondays but 
otherwise is open daily from 11:00 
a.m. to 1:00 a.m.

Rardin Examines 
Spiritual Integrity 

"Challenge and Response" was 
the topic cf the sermon delivered 
by Jeri'y Rardin '59 in the Sunday 
Chapel. The service was led by Al 
Bogatay '61. 

The challenge which inspired 
Rardin's sermon comes from the 
work of Karl Barth. A Swiss-Ger- 
man theologian, Barth has recently 
stirred the free world with his the- 
ory that the "American way of life" 
represents a greater danger to 
Christian souls than does Commu- 
nism. Rardin chose to echo rather 
than refute Barth's challenge, 
pointing out the various ways in 
which the current "religious revi- 
val" is more a sociological than a 
religious phenomenon. 

Social Influence 

"The problem," he pointed out, 
"to which Barth calls our attention 
is that religious faith has lost its 
zip precisely because it has become 
the majority fashion — the socially 
acceptable thing to do." We lack 
what he termed any spiritual in- 
tegrity to give us a firm guide in 
our way of life. 

Spiritual Integrity 

The response which Rardin 
brought forward to this challenge 
is that we should show as much 
religious honesty as we do honesty 
in the intellectual field. If we up- 
hold our spiritual standards as we 
do our intellectual standards then 
we will be able to resist such social 
practices as "a meaningless Sun- 
day morning religious routine."

Sloan Recipients' 
Record Superior 

High academic rating plus out- 
standing extracurricular honors 
have highlighted the Williams ca- 
reers of the fourteen Alfred P. 
Sloan scholarship holders now at 
Williams. Their records were re- 
viewed at the Annual Sloan din- 
ner held at the Williams Inn last 

The fourteen Sloan scholars rep- 
resent a record number at Wil- 
liams. Three members of the se- 
nior and junior classes and four 
sophomores and freshmen are in 
the group. 

Senior Honors Students 

The seniors, all of whom are 
honors majors, are Dave Batchel- 
der. Mack Hassler, and Jack Hy- 
land. Batchelder was a varsity 
football player this past fall. He 
is also a member of Phi Beta Kap- 

Hassler has been vice-president 
of the College Council, executive 
managing editor of the RECORD, 
and a member of Gargoyle at Wil- 
liams. He is the recent recipient of 
a Clark Graduate Fellowship. 

Hyland has distinguished him- 
self on campus as president of the 
College Council and permanent 
secretary-treasurer of the senior 
class. He is also a member of Gar- 


The juniors, Mel Gray, Kemp 
Randolph and George Russill, are 
all honors majors. Gray has served 
as a junior adviser and as secretary 
ot Delta Upsilon. Randolph, also a 
JA, has been elected president of 
Zeta Psi. Russill is publisher of 
the Daily Adviser. 

Terry Allen, Jon Heiser, Paul 
Mersereau, and Bob Montgomery 
are the sophomore recipients. Al- 
len was a key member of the var- 
sity swimming team this year. Hei- 
ser played varsity basketball and is 
secretary of Theta Delta Chi. Mer- 
sereau has recently been elected to 
a JA post and serves on the Col- 
lege Council. Class president Mont- 
gomery also plays varsity basket-

Phillips' Plan Slowing 
Action Of Treasurers 

Technicalities have slowed the 
progress of the Treasurers' Council 
to a near halt. The main block in 
the way of the Council is the Phil- 
ips Proposal, an idea of John Phil- 
ips '59 that would, if enacted, in- 
stall a resident manager to handle 
most of the business affairs of the 
fifteen fraternities. 

In order to be passed, the pro- 
posal must be approved by the 
members of each house, their 
alumni representatives, and the 
Council itself. If one house vetoe-s 
the proposal, it is highly probable 
that the entire idea will be dropped. 
Pilgrim Contacts Alumni 

Council President Jim Pilgrim 
has been involved for several weeks 
with alumni treasurers interested 
in the problem. Thus far no alum- 
ni reaction has been reported. 

Aside from the Philips problem, 
the council faces the difficulties of 
food and fuel purchases for next 
year. At present, the main aim of 
the council is to find cheaper fuel 
by cutting down on middle-man 

Dr. Bacon Shows Pre-Med Society 
Instructive Film Of Lung Operation 

The excision of a cancerous lung 
provided impressive film entertain- 
ment for the pre-medical Aescala- 
pian Society Wednesday, April 8. 
The film was presented by Dr. 
Samuel Bacon '43 of the Williams- 
town Medical Association In Room 
111 of Thomson Biology Lab. Over 
70 attended. 

The color film, in sound. Inclu- 
ded x-rays and diagrams. It con- 
veyed an extremely vivid and de- 
tailed picture of the operation from 
incision to closure. Afterwards Dr. 
Bacon and Dr. Robert Davis of the

the subjects of heart surgery, 
smoking and cancer of the lungs, 
and opportunities In medicine.

makes another great discovery... 

It's what's up front 
that counts 

You can reproduce the experiment. 
It's easy as TT . ( Yes, you can do it 
in the bathtub. ) Assuming that you 
have first visited your friendly tobac- 
conist, simply light your first Winston 
and smoke it. Reasoning backwards, 
the discovery proceeds as follows: 
first, you will notice a delightful 
flavor, in the class of fresh coffee or 
of bread baking. Obviously, such 

flavor cannot come from the filter. 
Therefore, it's what's up front that 
counts : Winston's Filter-Blend. The 
tobaccos are selected for flavor and 
mildness, then specially processed for 
filter smoking. This extra step is the 
real difference between Winston and 
all other filter cigarettes. Besides, 
it's why Winston is America's best- 
selling filter cigarette. 

"Eureka! Winston tastes good 

like a cigarette should!" 


Weather Hampers Frosh Baseball; 
Lacrosse Shows Much Enthusiasm 

by Herb Allen 

■I'hiity five freshmen braved a 
sleet unci snow storm to begin base- 
ball practice on Thursday. Coached 
by Ltn Watters. the squad boasts 
botli experience and depth and 
should easily equal last season's 
team record of 5 wins and 3 losses. 
The iiiain obstacle in the way of 
the team is the length of the sea- 
son. A.s Coach Watters says, "We 
barel.v have time to get into .shape 
before ihe season is over. However, 
all tlie other teams have the same 
{ilsa(i\anlag:e, so all that we can 
do i.'^ make the best of what we 
have " A.sslstant Coach Prank Na- 
vano echoed the sentiments of 
Watleis, "If we have only five

time ■

Ne'ilier coach has had any ob- 
jeclu'ii to the abundance of ma- 
terial 'that has been provided them. 
Willi less than a week of practice 
gone by, such players as Pete Cot- 
ton. .John Newton, and Bill Ryan 
have already shown considerable There is no definite lineup 
thu.s far: however, these three 
plnyejs already seem to have op- 
tion.s on the positions of second 
base, shortstop, and catcher re- 
spectively. A number of pitchers 
and outfielders have made the job 
of picking the first team a difficult 
one for the coaches. 

Schedule Begins Friday 

The .seven game schedule will be- 
gin Fiiday against Hotchkiss, and 
will inelude contests with Amherst 
and Wesleyan as well as several 
othei- fi'eshman teams. The only 
Piep Schools on the list are Wor- 
ce.stei' Academy and Hotchkiss, 
both with promising nines. Coaches 
Walters and Navarro plan to get 
the team into shape by holding 
several scrimmages with the var- 
sity as well as a few practice games 
with North Adams State Teachers 
College, These contests will be sup- 
plemented by daily intra-squad 
games. According to present plans, 
the season will be over on May 14, 
against Amherst.

"Pleasant surprises," were the 
words of Coach Al Shaw after last 
Saturday's first freshmen 
scrimmage. "A lot of things turned 
out better than we had thought 
they would. In general, it was 
good," .said the coach to his play- 

Lack of Experience 

This year's team unlike the ones 
of the last two years will be ham- 
pered by a lack of experience. Pew 
freshmen who are out for the 
team have ever held a lacrosse 
stick before coming to Williams 
and even fewer have ever played 
on a team. The team is making up 
for this inexperience with a wil- 
lingness to learn and a strong en- 
thusiasm for the game. With thir- 
ty-one freshmen trying for posi- 
tions and after only a week of prac- 
tice the majority of the positions 
aie still undecided. 

Itachman, Rutherford Impress 

The three starting attack po- 
sitions are being fought for by Tom 
Bachman, who played midfield al 
Pingry School, Skip Rutherford, 
John Henge.sbach, Robin Reyes, 
who played al Mount Hermon, 
Mike Keating, and Mike Cannon. 
Coach Shaw commended the fine 
stickwork of Bachman and Ruther- 
ford after Saturday's scrimmage. 

Twelve freshmen are vying for 
the midfield positions which make 
up the backbone of a team. 
Poor stick work due to inexperience 
seems to be the hindering factor of 
midfield which does a lot 
•)f power and speed. 

.McCauley Leads 

The defense including both the 
three defensemen and the goalie 
will be led by ex-Gilman star Dick 
McCauley. There are .seven candi- 
dates for defen.semen and three for 
goalie with lack of experience more 
obvious in these positions than 
anywhere else on the .squad. 

The team faces a tough five 
game .schedule including such per- 
ennial lacrosse powers as Deerfield 
and Harvard. The team hopes that 
it can continue the fine record of 
the last two freshmen teams.

Frosh Track Outlook 
Uncertain For Spring; 

Preshman track began the week 
before spring vacation with about 
20 boys reporting to Coach Tony 

Prospects are bright so far witli 
strength in every event but the 
dashes. There are only two dash- 
men so far, Dick CounUs and Paul 
Worthman, Worthman's record in 
the 100 is 10 seconds flat. Jim Ev- 
ans, cress-country star, and Bill 
Ryan will bj featured in the mile. 
Ryan has a previous record of 4:39. 
The 880 will include Spike Kellogg, 
.setter of a new freshman cross- 
country record this fall, and Harry 
Lee. who has a previous record of 
2:02. John Kroh. captain of the 
freshman winter relay team, and 
Dave Kieffer will handle the 440. 
Both run the event in around 52 

Power in Weights 

Plenty of power is expected in 
the weights with Al Starkey, Bill 
Pox. Phil Wirth. Bill Drucker, and 
Bill Hufnagel all working out. 
Prank Ward, an outstanding high 
hurdler and 11 foot pole vaulter, 
will participate in both events this 

Toughest competition is expected 
to come from Wesleyan this year, 
though Mount Hermon, Hotchkiss, 
and Deerfield also promise consid- 
erable strength. The first meet will 
be here against Deerfield on April 
22. Mount Hermon, Hotchkiss, and 
RPI follow respectively before the 
Little Three meet closes out the 
season at Wesleyan.

As other varsity teams, baseball has been practicing regularly In 
preparation for its spring season. The first varsity contests at home 
this year will be played by the baseball team on the 23rd with Colby 
and the 24th with Bowdoin. In this picture. Bob Stegetnan, a candi-

Freshmen Net Hopes 
High With Prospects 
For Excellent Season 

Led by top-ranked John Botts, 
the prospects for the freshman 
tennis team this year are, accord- 
ing lo Coach Clarence Chaffee, 
"very promising." 

In singles the .squad should be 
the equal of any competitor met 
tills year. Botts displayed great po- 
tential in the fall, powering his way 
into the finals of the college tour- 
nament where he was edged by 
varsity star Clyde Buck. Ptirther- 
more, the .squad should have excel- 
lent depth in the other singles po- 
sitions with such stalwarts as Bob 
Mahland. Graddy Johnson, Ned 
Shaw and Ricky PieUsch all show- 
ing the needed ability to aid in 
producing a fine record for the 
coming season. Due to the injury of 
Tom Howe, three men, Tom Boy- 
den, Bob Rubin, and Bob Nevin, 
will be contending for the final 
■singles position. 

Problem In Doubles 

The chief problem facing Coach 
Chaffee seems to lie in the dou- 
bles, where due to the inclement 
weather which has prevented the 
development of the doubles align- 
ment, neither the strength nor abi- 
lity of individuals or teams Is 

It .seems that this squad could

Winter sports are a thing of the 
past for another year, and now all 
the spring athletes will duel with 
the unpredictable New England 
weather for awhile, remembering 
all the time how nice the weather 
was on the southern trips. The last 
Ephman to compete in a winter 
sport was Buck Robiirson, who 
swam in the qualifying rounds of 
the NCAA swimming champion- 
ships in Ithica, New York. Buck 
failed to qualify for the finals. He 
ended up ranked about thirteenth 
in the nation in the 200 yard 
breast stroke. In the preliminaries 
he swam in the same heat as Cy 
Hokins, last year's winner of the 
event, and Bill Mulliken, this year's 
winner. Hopkins of Michigan, qua- 
lified first in the preliminaries with 
a time of 2:21.8, and Mulliken of

Miami of Ohio, won the finals with 
a time of 2:21.5. Buck swam a 
2:30.7 in the qualifying rounds. His 
best time. 2:28.7, which is the New 
England record, would have placed 
him ninth. Yale, the pride of the 
New England swimming teams, 
placed fourth, over 100 points be- 
hind Michigan, who amassed 137;i 
points lo win. This is not meant to 
belittle Buck or the Yale swim- 
ming team, but only to point out 
the tremendous competition on a 
nationwide scale. 

Spring Trip Records 

Speaking of competition, Eph 
rooters should not be dismayed by 
the records of some of the teams 
on their southern trips. Take the 
baseball team for instance, who 
returned with a 2 and 8 record. 
Coach Coombs mentioned for one 
thing that the two teams that Wil- 
liams played had been practicing 
outside for over a month. Also both 
schools give out athletic scholar- 
ships. Apparently this pays off for 
them. Coach Coombs said that 
Pfieffer has 5 men that the major 
league scouts are watching closely, 
and Elon had two. One of Elon's 
pitchers, Jamison, was the colle- 
giate leader in ERA last year. 
His record was 5-0 and he pitched 
42 shutout innings. Against 'Wil- 
liams he won 12-0. making it 49 
innings in a row without giving up 
a run. 

Lacrosse Improvement 

The lacrosse team, responded 
well to Coach Bill McHenry's rug- 
ged conditioning on the spring trip. 
Al Washington and Lee, Coach 
McHenry showed no pity on his old 
alma mater, as the Ephmen rolled 
over them by a score of 12 to 3. 
The game was a brotherly rivalry, 
as McHenry's brother is the coach 
of Washington and Lee. The team 
had a scrimmage with Johns Hop- 
kins, which usually ends up first or 
second in the nation In lacrosse. 
This fact alone shows how much 
the lacrosse team has improved In 
the last two years. 

Fraternity-Faculty Cocktail Parties 
Arouse Many Favorable Comments 

By John Mayher 

The annual Faculty cocktail pai'- 
ties held by the Fraternities are 
"a fine institution" according to 
Thomas P. Roche of the English 
Department and most of the fac- 
ulty members queried agreed. The 
prevailing opinion seemed to be 
that, for the most part, the gather- 
ings do serve a valuable purpose 
in promoting faculty-student re- 
lations in an atmosphere other 
than that of the classroom or the 
professor's office. 

"There are times when the din 
of the gathering becomes so great 
that you can't even hear yourself 
think" said Mr. Charles G. Nauert, 
but he too felt that they were the 
best possible method of "meeting 
the student in his natural habitat." 
On the whole the faculty members 
interviewed seemed to feel that if 
some arrangement could be made 
to have smaller groups at a num- 
ber of parties there would be less 
confusion and consequently more 
benefit to both sides. 

Healthy Spirit 

Asked whether or not there was 
much difference between the sev- 
eral parties, Luther Mansfield sta- 
ted that "some of the efforts are 
smoother than others", with vary- 
ing degrees of success in .seeing 
that every faculty member was 
greeted by students that he was 
acquainted with. Roche also noted 
this and added that "a little less 
self-consciousness on the part of 
the members of the fraternity 
would probably increase the value 
of such an affair." William A. Lit- 
tle said that sometimes they .seem- 
ed to be "a pitched battle between 
the fraternity and the faculty", 
however he thought that "there 
was definitely a healthy spirit of 
competition between the fraterni- 
ties as to which one would most 
successfully dirty rush the facul- 

More, Smaller Parties 

Harlan P. Hanson suggested 
that "either as an alternative or 
an addition to the present system, 
it might be more valuable to have 
the various departments at indivi- 
dual parties to give the students 
a chance to examine them con- 
cerning their courses, on the stu- 
dent's own territory." Many of the 
other faculty members questioned 
felt that there could be a certain 
amount of spreading out of the 
festivities over the course of the 
year. This would be especially val- 
uable for the new members of the 
faculty, as they would have an 
opportunity to become socially 
acquainted with the student body 
earUer in the year. 

The general opinion on both ends 
of the academic log seems to be 
that these parties provide a valu- 
able link between the two groups 
in a non-classroom atmosphere. 
However, from a faculty member 
who prefers to remain anonymous, 
comes this warning, "Martinis 
without ice become distastefully 
warm, with ice disasterously weak."

Williams Receives Cluett Property; 
Estate May Become Faculty Homes 

Early in 1958 the four surviving cliiklrcn ol Ccor^e A. Cluett 
gave to Williams their father's estate eonsistinj^ of a larj^e house 
and several other buildings t(iij;etlier with 178 acres of land. 
Cluett was a member of the class oF 1(S96 and liad served for 11 
years as Trustee of Williams. He 

was well known as a collector of 
furniture and paintings, and after 
retiring from the Williams Board 
in 1946 maintained his residence 
in Sea Lsland, Georgia. 

Located a mile south of the cen- 
ter of the college on the south side 
of Gale Road beyond the Taconic 
Golf Course, the property extend.s 
from a line near the Green River 
Road on the east to Stone Hill on 
the west. Included is a sum for 
maintenance of the property for 
a period of years. 

Site for P'aculty Housing: 

According to President Baxter, 
this gift ought to aid in attracting 
faculty to Williams, as it will serve 
as a potential site for faculty 
homes. "Tliis splendid gift," Presi- 
dent Baxter said, "is of great im- 
portance for the future of the col- 
lege, and it constitutes a large and 
compact area of great beauty, 
closely related in site to Williams' 
earlier holdings. 

"We have no present plans for 
the utilization of the property to 
enlarge the college," he added, "but 
we hope to set aside substantial 
portions of it at an early date as 
home sites for present and future 
faculty members who may wish to 
build on what is certainly one of 
the most beautiful locations in 
New England. I am sure that this 
will contribute greatly to our abili- 
ty to hold and to attract outstand- 
ing teachers. 

Mather Cites UMass. 
Fraternity Conditions 

Fraternities at the University of 
Massachusetts have recently been 
condemned as "drinking centers" 
and "overcrowded, unsanitary and 
unsafe housing quarters" by uni- 
versity president Dr. Jean Paul 

The problem, brought to light in 
a series of articles by Mather in 
the "Massachusetts Collegian," 
concerns the inability of fraterni- 
ties to Improve the allegedly de- 
plorable condition of their houses 
without submitting to financial 
and managerial control by the col- 
lege. Most of the houses, he stated, 
go bankrupt by the end of the 
year and "can't even pay their 
liquor bills." 

Dry Fraternities 

If the college did assume respon- 
sibility for the fraternities, they 
would have to be dry. The frater- 
nities can't have financial aid and 
drinking privileges too. No solution 
has yet been offered.

(By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys! "and, 
"Barefoot Boy with Cheek") 


TTie other day as I was walking down tlie street picking up 
tinfoil, (Marlboro, incidentally, luis the best tinfoil, which is 
not suriirising when you consider that they have the best ciga- 
rettes, which is not surprising when you consider that tiiey take 
the best filters and put them together with the best tobaccos 
and rush them to your tobacco counter, fresh and firm and 
loaded with smoking pleasure). The other day, I say, as I was 
walking down the street picking up tinhiil, (I have, incidentally, 
the second largest ball of tinfcjil in our family. .My Imither 
Eleanor's is bigger— more than four miles in tliaineter hut, of 
course, lie is taller than 1). Thedtlicr day, as I was .saying, while 
walking down the street picking up tinfoil, I a campus 
and right beside it, a niovii^ tlicatrc wliicli specialized in show- 
ing foreign films. Most campuses have foreign movie theatres 
close by, because foreign movies are full of culture, art, and 
esoterica, and wliere is culture more rife, art more rampant, 
and esoterica more endemic than on a cami)us? 

Nowhere; that's where. 


I hope you have all been taking advantage of your local foreign 
film tlieatre. Here you will find no simple-minded Hollywood 
products, marked by treacly sentimentality and ni.achine-made 
bravura. Here you will find life itself— in all its griinness, its 
poverty, its naked, raw passion! 

Have you, for instance, seen the recent French import, Le 
Crayon de Mon Oncle ("The Kneecap"), a savage and unconi- 
proinising story of a man named Claude, whose consuming 
ambition is to get a job as a meter reader with the Paris water 
department? But he is unable, alas, to afford the fla-shlight 
one needs for this position. His wife, Bon-Bon, sells her hair 
to a wigmaker and buys him a flashlight. Then, alas, Claude 
discovers that one also requires a leatherette bow tie. This time 
his two young daughters. Caramel and Nougat, sell their hair 
to a wigmaker. So now Claude has his leatherette bow tie, 
but now, alas, his flashlight battery is burned out and the 
whole family, alas, is bald. 

Or have you seen the latest Italian masterpiece, La Donna E 
Mobik (I Ache All Over), a heart-shattering tale of a boy and 
his dog? Malvolio, a Venetian lad of nine, loves his little dog 
with every fibre of his being. He has one great dream : to enter 
the dog in the annual Venetian dog show. But thi.s, alas, requires 
an entrance fee, and Malvolio, alas, is penniless. However, he 
saves and scrimps and steals and finally gets enough together 
to enter the dog in the show. The dog, alas, comes in twenty- 
third. Malvolio sells him to a vivisectionist. 

Or have you seen the new Japanese triumph, Kihulzi-San 
(The Radish), a pulse-stirring historical romance about Yamoto, 
a poor fanner, and his daughter Ethel who are accosted by a 
warlord one morning on their way to market? The warlord cuts 
Yamoto in half with his samurai sword and runs off with iOthel. 
When Yamoto recovers, he seeks out Ethel's fiancd. Red 
Buttons, and together they find the warlord and kill him. But, 
alas, the warlord was also a sorcerer and he whimsically turned 
Ethel into a whooping crane. Ixjyal Red Buttons takes Ethel 
home where he feeds her fish heads for twenty years and keeps 
hoping ahe'U turn back into a woman. She never does. Alas. 

tf there'* tmoMng in the balcony of your theatre, we hope 
you'll be smoking Philip Morris— or, it you prefer fillers. 
Marlboro . . . Marlboro— new improved filter, fine rich flavor 
—from the maker» of Pliilip Morri*.

Probably the most interesting 
dinclopment in the figures on re- 
si.stration, however, was the drop 
in the number of English majors 
from 41 to 28 and from 1st to 3rd 
place. The reason for this rather 
liu HO decrease, according to Chair- 
man of the Department Robert J. 
Allen, is the fact that the English 
major has been undergoing a com- 
plete revamping this year — "put- 
ting the pig through the python so 
to speak". Allen also pointed out 
that today's students seem to be 
very interested in the problems of 
contemporary society and, as a re-

in the social sciences."

Phi Beta Kappas 
To Print Review 

The Williams Chapter of Phi 
Beta Kappa has begun work on an 
academic publication to be entitl- 
ed "The Williams Review". 

The Chapter met this fall to dis- 
cuss the problem of the lack of an 
academic publication as .such on 
campus. The members decided to 
encourage academic writing — eith- 
er by means of a column in the 
RECORD or their own magazine. A 
committee was formed to investi- 
gate the chances of publishing a 
magazine. Support was found in 
both the CC Finance Committee 
and the Faculty Committee in 
Charge of Student Affairs. The 
staff now has obtained enough 
money for one issue scheduled to 
appear sometime before the mid- 
dle of May. 


As stated, the magazine will be 
academic, not literary. It will con- 
tain especially good essays writ- 
ten by any student for any course. 
Thus it will give complete cov- 
erage of both the Humanities and 
the Sciences. The faculty will col- 
laborate on choosing the articles. 

Striving for content over form, 
the editorial board plans an inex- 
pensive layout with no ads. The 
first issue of approximately fifty 
pages will sell for 50c. 

The staff includes Mac Hassler, 
Al Donovan. Bob Gould, George 
Aid. Henry Cohen, Ed Brash, and 
Dick Crews. Professor Nelson 
Bushnell. President of the local 
Chapter has given the publication 
his full support. 

Mrs. Phinney Comments On Youth, 
Life, Teaching, 'Medieval Harvard' 

By Bill Baker 

"I'm seventy and I enjoy being 
seventy; I enjoy being alive at 
seventy." Mrs. James Phinney 
Baxter III has enjoyed her life as 
a teacher and as the wife of a tea- 
cher. Her merry smile and her 
quips have endeared her to all who 
have known her. 

After receiving her Phi Beta 
Kappa key at Colorado College, 
Ann Strang took a job teaching in 
the high school at Pueblo, Col- 
orado. "I once thought that I 
would rather clean then teach and 
now there is nothing that I hate 
more than cleaning," From the 
first day Mrs. Baxter loved teach- 
ing. "It's the best profession in the 
world. I like the human element. 
It's better than medicine because 
you are working with normal peo- 
ple and you can still see them get- 
ting better under your eyes. 
A Naughty Boy 

"I had some problems with dis- 
cipline at the beginning. One 
morning a boy had shinnied up a 
pole and he wouldn't come down 
when I told him to. I did some- 
thing for which I have been a- 
shamed ever since. I told him to 
come down and go to the princi- 
pal's office. When he came back 
with his coat torn, I resolved never 
to let someone else handle my pro- 
blems for me again." 

After a pause for an M. S. at 
the University of Wisconsin, she 
returned to Colorado and took a 
Job teaching in Colorado Springs. 
"There 1 met Jim who was recup- 
erating from tuberculosis." After 
they were 

married, the Baxters 



moved East and lived in Belmont 
while Mr. Baxter was getting his 
PhD. "It was a wonderful year, and 
we worked very hard. But I was 
astonished at the medieval attitude 
at Harvard. Because I was a wo- 
man, I couldn't even go into the 
Widener Library to help Jim take 
notes, wheeling the books in a baby 
carriage to prove that we were 

"It has been wonderful in Wil- 
liamstown. Everyone began by giv- 
ing us advice on how to get along 
with the crabby older people and 
we were surprised to find a won- 
derful group of younger people who 
did not require any effort." Mrs. 
Baxter leaned back in her chair 
pensively. "This life has been 
broader, there have been more re- 
sponsibilities. And it keeps one 
young longer than most occupa- 
tions because one is interested In 
what the young are doing," 


Welanetz Outlines 
Planned Changes 

Planned for sometime during 
May, the offices of the Building 
and Grounds Department will be 
moved to the Danforth block on 
Spring Street next to the Alumni 
House. Director Peter Welanetz 
also indicated that a considerable 
amount of refurbishing was plan- 
ned for the summer, including 
landscaping of the sophomore quad 
and new lights for the chemistry 

Office Moves 

The old Buildings and Grounds 
offices on the second floor of Jesup 
Hall will be used by the Develop- 
ment head, William Dickerson, 
while John Hitchcock, in charge of 
sports coverage for the news bu- 
reau, will move in next to pub- 
licity director Ralph Renzi. Tliese 
offices, considered permanent, will 
be completed this summer. Mean- 
while, the Buildings and Grounds 
department hope to have a new 
service building to house all their 
installations in two or three years. 
The Danforth Block location, for- 
mally used by the Williamstown 
switch board, will be temporary. 

New Projects 

Welanetz's crews will be espec- 
ially busy this summer with a long 
list of projects. To improve the 
athletic facilities, Weston Field will 
get new bleachers, the tennis 
courts six new composition courts 
as well as resurfaced black top, and 
the hockey rink will get rebuilt end 
boards. A heavy program in paint- 
ing and redecorating will include 
work on two entries of Williams 
Hall, the second & third floors of 
West and the upper floors of Cur- 

Stone Debates 

The finals of the Stone In-

Phi Gamma Delta, 

The topic is "Resolved: That

town and Bennington. The job is 
tentatively scheduled for today. 
Badly Shocked 

"The community of Beniungton, 
both Catholic and non-Catholic, 
was badly shocked by the incident". 
Judge Clark declared. "I believe 
that the boys had no intent to in- 
sult anyone's religion, but they 
have to understand that wliat they 
did amounted to religious dese- 
cration. Under the circumstances a 
fine is distinctly inappropriate. A 
mere restitution of the money val- 
ue of the statue is not enough". 

Judge Clark went on to say that, 
in his opinion, the incident had 
"no overtones of humor in it at 

Expect No Leniency 

The situation in Bennington be- 
ing as it is in regard to Williams 
students. Judge Clark affirmed 
that he would tolerate no similar 
incident occurring in the future. 
"For the benefit of any students 
who are tempted to misbehave — 
if they are convicted in my court, 
they will receive no leniency." 

College Dean R. R. R. Brooks, al- 
so shocked by the nature of the 
charge, added: "To anyone who 
sat through the court proceedings 
in Bennington last Monday it must 
have been apparent that the day 
has passed on which misconduct 
by college students can be dismis- 
sed as a college prank. Indeed it 
seems clear that the public re- 
gards admission to a college as a 
privilege requiring a higher stan- 
dard of conduct than from those 
less fortunate." 

A meeting of the Discipline Com- 
mittee on Monday resulted in cam- 
pus restriction for the five students 
for the remainder of the semester. 
One freshman was put on disci- 
plinary probation as a result of 
previous campus restriction last 

Williams Republicans 
Attend State Meeting 

Last weekend the Young Repub- 
licans of Williams College attend- 
ed the Young Republicans' Mass- 
achusetts State Convention at Bos- 
ton. The five delegates represent- 
ing Williams were President Jim 
Robinson, Dave Rodgers, Dave 
Brown, Marty Linsky, and Phil 
Abrams. The four other institu- 
tions, which together represented 
the state's eastern sector, were 
Harvard, B. U., Wellesley, and 

B. U. Challenges Harvard 
Saturday afternoon, the college 
delegations held a caucus at which 
the true political character of those 
assembled was brought out. As it 
turned out, the Young Republican 
Council of Boston University op- 
posed the Young Republican Fed- 
eration from Harvard. After a per- 
iod ot glad-handing which even- 
tually turned into out and out 
fighting, nominations for the of- 
ficers of the New England Federa- 
tion of College Young Republicans 
were made and withdrawn in a 
living example of political bargain- 
ing. Meanwhile, the two factions 
and Williams, which was neutral, 
noticed that Wellesley and Rad- 
cliffe had taken advantage of the 
protective camouflage of cigar 
smoke to quietly make their col- 
lective exit. 

Rodgers Featured 
Williams, then in a position to 
call Its shots, sided with Hai-vard 
and, by doing so, maneuvered Dave 
Rodgers into the limelight as an 
alternate representative. 

It is reliably reported that a 
proposed Saturday evening meet- 
ing went unattended.

The well rounded guy 

The Amherst Report ])iiblished in recent issues 
of the RECORD points out an essential diffei- 
ence between the "sister colleges of Western 
Massachusetts." Relatively speakinff, Amherst 
has managed to eliminate the homogeneity of 
the student body— the essential advantage of 
a small college. 

This is not to say that a small college ought to 
be basically socially oriented or that it is effect- 
ively forced to be so. The value of homogeneity 
at Williams manifests itself in a number of com- 
monly held values. This situation results from an 
admissions policy which, although not clearly ar- 
ticulated, seeks to attract the student with good 
academic ]50tential who also has interests in other 
sorts of activity. 

Williams attempts to educate the "well rounded 
guy" in the best sense of Uiis cliche. 

Amherst, on the other hand, in trying to endow 
itself with a student body whose sole common 
ground is a high degree of basic intelligence, 
finds itself with students who by and large have 
no rapport with each other. In a college four 
times its size, this is ]Dossible because the student 
body is comj^osed of diverse groups; Amherst 
is made up of diverse individuals. 

The Class of 1963 was admitted to Williams this 
week. Unavoidably some of them will turn out 
to be well-rounded on the side of anti-intellectual 
or non-academic pursuits. Unavoidably, there 
will be others who ought to have gone to a ]olace 
such as Harvard where they would have found 
companions in non-conformity. On the whole, 
however, the new class will be able to benefit 
from the unique advantages of Williams-intel- 
lectual and social co-operation aimed at develop- 
ing the complete individual.

In the "flurry" over the expulsion of the Nat- 
ional Student Association from direct influ- 
ence on the campus, rather more important 
action of the College Council was overlooked. 
Bij voting^ support for the Phi Beta Kappa 
magazine, the Council, in one of few instances, 
has exercised its perogative of considering 
"the general good of the College" as opposed 
to the interests of individual students. 



We are all aware of the certain truth of 
life which rec)uires warmth and understanding. 
The poetic word for this quality in human ex- 
]5erience is "love." All of us attempt to evidence 
this condition in our personal lives and our re- 
lations with others. Some, of course, achieve it 
to a greater degree tlian others. 

A basis is needed within our owai lives to 
effect this identification with this fundamental 
of life. Some of the most common grounds on 
which a man may meet life are obvious. They 
are: friendship, love for a woman, dedication to 
intellectual or creative pursuit. If such grounds 
are lacking, dien it is impossible for a man to 
define his position. D. E. Steward

Chess Players Seek Championship, 
Lost To Amherst 100 Years Ago 

In the spring of 1859, James F. 
Claffln, Amherst senior, proposed 
that Amherst challenge Williams 
to "a game of ball." At a meeting 
of the two colleges Williams ac- 
cepted the challenge and present- 
ed a counter-challenge for a chess 

On July 1. the 
ball clubs met 
on the field of 

the PittsfielU 
Baseball Club 
in the fU'st in- 
baseball game, 
which Amherst 
won 73-32. The 

chess match 
was held the 
next day be- 
cause Claffin 
was a member 

of both the baseball and chess 
teams. In the match at the Pitts- 
field Chess Club, the favored Wil- 
liams players resigned at the 48th 
move, after 11 hours of play. 

This year, a Williams chess tram 
under the direction of Nick Vaii 
Deusen will be out to reveng,. this 
loss. The Centennial Chess Match 
will be held May 16. behind the 
backstop on Pratt Field whih the

Philadelphia Athletics. "I graduat-

and a heavy Maine accent. 

He spent eleven years in pro 
ba.soball and played in every big 
minor league except the Pacific 
Coast League. His two best years 
were with Shreveport In '40 when 
lie had a 19-10 record and with 
Ji'i.sey City in '42 when he had a

he faced was Babe Ruth, who hit 
a home run. However, he got the 
next three, Gehrig, Lazarri, and 
Chapman, out. The next batter he 
would have faced would have been 
Bill Dickey. The first week, he 
relieved in four games, two a- 
gainst the Yankees, and two a- 
gainst the Senators. 

Outside Interests 

Outside of baseball. Coach 
Coombs' interests are in hunting 
and fishing. During the summers, 
he and his wife go to Ogunquit, 
Maine, where he has a charter boat 
and takes out fishing parties. If 
the fish aren't biting, he spins 
ba.scball yarns. His customers, it is 
said, return as much to hear his 
baseball tales as for the fishing. 

He has one son. Raymond F. 
Coombs, Jr., who graduated from 
Springfield College and is now 
teaching and coaching at Wilton 
Academy in Maine. He also men- 
tioned with a proud smile that he 
has a granddaughter and grand- 
son, and he reminded me again 
that he is getting old. 

Track Team, Golfers 
Open Spring Seasons 
Against Boston Foes 


Saturday the Williams Varsity 
Track team led by Co-Captains 
Bob Hatcher and George Sudduth 
journeys to Boston to meet Tufts 
and Boston University. The team 
is seeking their second undefeated 
season in a row. 

With Hatcher in the weights and 
Sudduth in the middle distance 
the team looks well rounded. Losses 
through injury and ineligibility will 
hurt the team, however. High 
jumper Bob Dunham and 440 
sprinter Bill Russell are both out 
due to injuries. Sprinter and hurd- 
ler Walt Henrion is out because of 

Other mainstays including 880 
man Bill Moomaw, miler Dave 
Canfield, pole vaulter Tony Har- 
wood and weight man Stu Wal- 
lace are in excellent shape. 

The opposition is very strong, 
B. U., always a power, has the edge 
in the field events. Tufts will field 
its usually strong team. 

The Varsity golf team will com- 
pete against M, I, T„ Harvard, and 
Boston College in a quadrangular 
golf meet this Saturday, Hanse 
Halligan, college golf champ. Bob 
Julius, Bill Tuach, Mike Beemer 
and Sam Davis are the returning 
varsity golfers and should provide 
stiff competition in this meet. 
Three sophs, Andy MacKechnie, 
Pete Hager, and Jim Pi-ick add 
considerable depth to the team. 

Last year's golf squad compiled 
an admirable 11-4 record and also 
brought home the New England 
team trophy. Bob Julius, '60, was 
victorious in all of his matches and 
hopes to duplicate that feat this 
coming .season. Julius who will 
probably vie with Halligan for the 
No. 1 position on the team remark- 
ed on the team's strength, "We 
sho':ld be as good as last year's 
team, if not better. John Boyd and 
Rob Poster are the only golfers 
we have lost by graduation."

Ephs Take Up Rugby 
Coughlin Explains Play 

With the (idocut of Rw^hii at Williuin.s, the RECORD asked 
Date Couiildhi, one of the orf^aiiizer.s of the fiaiiie at Williams to 
<iice (I brief exphmation of the phuj. 

Play begins, as in American foot 
ball, with a kickoff. The ball is 
caught by a man on the receiving 
team who runs downfield toward 
his opponents' goal. When he is 
about to be tackled he can either 
lateral the ball to a teammate or 
punt the ball. No forward passes 
are allowed. This process of run- 
ning and lateralling is continued 
until a player either crosses the 
goal line or is tackled. 

If the ball carrier crosses the 
opponents' goal he must pass the 
ball to the ground in order to score 
a "try" (touchdown), good for 
three points. A conversion, worth 
two points is then attempted from 
a point on the field opposite to 
where the ball was touched down. 
It may be taken at any distance 
from the goal line. However the 
opposing team may rush the kicker 
to block the ball. 


If the carrier is tackled he must 
drop the ball whereupon it becomes 
a free ball. After a tackle, the ball 
must first be played with the foot. 
It may be kicked, dribbled, or 
merely tapped, as long as it is 
played with the foot first. Then it 
may be picked up and run. Usually, 
a "scrum", composed of the two 
opposing groups of forwards forms 
over the ball and they attempt, by 
hooking with their feet and shov- 
ing, to get the ball back to their 
own three-quarter line (backs) 
who are lined across the field. Once 
out of the scrum the ball may be 
picked up, passed and run as after 
the kickoff. The ball may not be 
touched with the hands while in 
the scrum. 

Punt Anytime 

The ball may be punted at any- 
time. If it lands in bounds it is a 
free ball. Since it is more advanta- 
geous to have the ball in your op- 
ponents' area rather than to have 
actual possession of the ball, it is 

often kicked down field. When the 
ball goes out of bounds, either 
kicked out or run into "touch", 
play is resumed with a "line-out". 
The forwards of each team line up 
parallel to each other but perpen- 
dicular to the touchline about a 
yard apart. The ball is then thrown 
into the line giving each team an 
equal opportunity for possession. 
The forwards jump to catch it and 
then throw it out to their backs.

has announced that the Red

Historian Lasch Prepares Thesis; 
Feels ^Student Should Participate' 

By George Reath 

"I came to Williams in January 
of 1957, and I like It more and 
more as I go on, simply because I 
get the feeling that now I know 
more what I am doing." History 
Instructor Christopher Lasch smil-

"My special interest is American 
history since the Civil War, though 
it seems a pity to narrow oneself 
to such a small field. It would be 
nice to do some work in European 
history. I am writing my thesis on 
the impact of the Russian Revo- 
lution on American liberalism. I 
plan to submit it in 1960, though 
that's a very optimistic estimate." 

Born in Omaha, Neb., Lasch gra- 
duated from Harvard and took his 
MA at Columbia in 1955. He is at 
present studying for his Ph.D.

long enough to develop any theo-

even in American history, students 
had the background necessary to 
conduct a sensible discussion. This 
is the assumption the whole his-

than that, and it is very hard to 
single out one factor. Teaching at 
Williams is a distinctly sheltered 
experience. Everybody seems to 
feel that the quality of students 
here is getting better. You do find 
students who have difficulty with 
writing, and even with reading. 
You can't assume that every stu- 
dent has had the grounding in La-

history, that he used to. An awful

beginning while these men catch

vSSaKV In the "Snow Corner of 

^^^^^^r New England" 

During the latter stage of Wil- 
liams' va«'.ation, cartoonist Al 
Capp, creator of the L'il Abner 
comic strip, gave a lecture at 
Bennington College. 

By P. B. Tacy 

I met Capp at the famous (or 
infamous) State Line Restaurant, 
where he arrived for post-lecture 
refreshment with an entourage 
that included a number of Ben- 
nington girls. He ordered pizzas, 
then commenced to expound on 
doz?ns of questions from every side 
I "I am Al Capp. I don't know a 
lot about anything, but have ideas 
on everything.") 

Wliat did Capp think of the 
B'town girl'? "This is the first time 
I've been here," he began; "but at ; 
first m::eting, she seems more 
poised — and less self conscious 
than other college girls." The last 
part of the comment was greeted 
by laughter from the Bennington 
contingent. "She is better man- 
nered — far different than the gen- 
eral picture of the Bennington 
girl; and not really off-beat." Capp 
doesn't see much unique in the 
younger generation, although he 
admits they seem to be "doing a 
lot." The Beatniks? "The same 
-crabby group as always." 
A Lode Of Satire 
Capp readily admitted to being 
in political and social satire in "L'il 
Abner." "There is an embarass- 
ment of riches in politics for the 
satirist," he commented. He men- 
tioned plans for focusing on the 
next presidential elections in his 
strip. Naming Kennedy and Rocke- 
feller as the probable candidates. 

he reflected that it was perhaps 
a good thing to have two men who 
were so rich running against each 
other. "Chances are they'll steal 

Capp shifted his focus to his own 
peers in cartooning. "The best pure 
comic of all is Walt (Pogo) Kelly," 
he said. "As a draftsman, though, 
none is better than Milton Caniff. 
That includes straight artists. Yes, 
Caniff is a better draftsman than 
even Da Vinci." 

The waitress arrived with the 
pizza, and demanded immediate 
payment. Capp grinned at the un- 
dergraduates about him. "One of 
these schools — Williams or Benn- 
ington — must be awfully damned

the 7:30 P. M. discussions are de-

intellectual climate in fraterni- 

Several Speakers 

Each of the three nights of the 
symposium a different faculty 
member and student will partici- 
pate. Monday night Dr. Samuel 
Matthews, chairman of the Bio- 
louy department, and Senior Jim 
Rayhill will be heard. On Tuesday 
the speakers will be David Boul- 
loii of the English department and 

Al Donovan '59. The Wednesday 
evening talk by Professor Frederick 
L. Schuman will be followed by a 
summary of the three evenings and 
a discu.ssion led by Bill Edgar '59, 
in which all the previous speakers 
will join. 

Stu Levy '60. organizer of the 
symposium, has stressed the in- 
formality of the discussions. "It 
will definitely not be a lecture-

Three Bands At All-College Dance 
To Highlight Annual Spring Holiday 

rlie weekend of May 1-3 will 
once again bring the Annual 
Spring Houseparties to the Wil- 
liams College campus. Some en- 
teiiainment has been planned to 
ollset the inevitable diet of snoo- 
■imy, and boozing which has in the 
li:e,t been an outstanding feature 
ol most weekends. 

Dance Chairman Dave Skaff 
'i.iv.i that to alleviate the conges- 
t'.nii caused by one big orchestra, 
till re will be three combos opera- 
lin:; simultaneously on Friday eve- 
ning. In the dining hall of the Stu- 
di lit Union, a society band, the 
I'.iiitiassy Orchestra, will in effect

Williams' Purple Knights will hold 
f<iith in the Frosh lounge with 
somewhat more swinging dance 
music, while in the Rathskellar, 
Pliinney's Favorite Five, in their 
la.-'t appearance on the Williams 
■scene will make it with Dixieland. 

Skaff hopes that this continuity 

and variety of music will bring 
more couples to the dance and 
will also ease the discomforture 
associated with lack of space. In- 
termissions will be filled by Over- 
weight Eights from Goucher, Brad- 
ford, and Skidmore. 

Another drawing card for the 
weekend will be Non Scquitur, the 
All-College Revue which is ru- 
mored to be the best ever — so 
good, in fact, that it will be the 
.sole entertainment of Saturday 
night. Saturday night is plan- 
ned to accommodate house parties 
and a Freshman dance in Baxter 
Hall for which the music has not 
yet been obtained. 

The Mardi Gras, in the past a 
great inconvenience to the frater- 
nities, is not scheduled this year, 
but pending a blanket approval of 
the Blanket Tax Plan, an All-Col-

be in the offing for Sunday after- 

Playiair Announces 'Darkness 
As Commencement Production 

"The only thing wrong is that 
tlie play closes tonite. It is AMT 
at its finest", RECORD reviewer 
Ernie Imhoff wrote April 11 about 
Darkness at Noon. The play has 
not closed. It will be reproduced 
Pi iday and Saturday evenings June 
5 and 6. 

Giles Playfair, director of the 
AMT and star of the widely-heral- 
ded, terror-filled drama has an- 
nounced plans for its reproduction 
as the annual commencement play. 
According to Playfair, "It is in 
accord with the solemnity of the 
commencement occasion". 
Widely Acclaimed 

'riie play initially drew record 
crowds on the nights of April 9 and 
11- It was widely acclaimed In lo- 
cal critical reviews. 

Kingsley R. Fall of the Berkshire 
Eagle wrote on April 10, "What- 
ever blood is let into the veins of 
the Kingsley-Koestler characters 
is done by those who play them, 
and this is true of the Williams- 
town production". 

The North Adams Transcript 
proclaimed, "Darkness at Noon,

of Communist Russia, presented 
last night at the Adams Memorial 
Theater, belied its title name, prov- 
ing itself one of the brightest spots 
in the past three-year history . . ." 
of the Williams' theater. 

All reviewers highly praised the 
performances of actor-director 
Robert T. Mathews '56 and Eliza- 
beth Mamorsky of Bennington. 

Scholarship Aids 
For New Frosh 

Although final statistics will not 
be available for some time, it is 
now estimated that approximately 
20 per cent of the incoming fresh- 
man class will receive scholarship 
aid in the form of general and spe- 
cial scholarships. 

While the class of '63 has only 
three prospective Merit Scholar- 
ship winners as contrasted with el- 
even in the class of '62, they so far 
have seven Tyng scholars, four 
Sloan scholars, three Alumni As- 
sociation scholars, and one each 
of the General Motors, Inland Steel 
Foundation, and Procter and Gam- 
ble scholarships. These grants are 
included in the group of some 81 
awards which have been offered to 
various members of the incoming 

The Scholarships 

The Tyng scholarships establish- 
ed in 1942, are awarded on a four- 
year basis, and may possibly even 
continue for three years into gra- 
duate study. 

The four Sloan scholarships may 
last as long as the full four years, 
ranging from $200 to $2,000. Each 
of the other special scholarships 
allows a maximum of four years' 
provisional coverage. 

The general scholarships, award- 
ed by the Comm. on Student Aid 
are based on a fund derived from 
tuition fees, and are becoming 
more and more important as the 
cost of education increases. 

Due to this growing need and 
an increased interest in the pro- 
gram, the scholarship fund has 
practically doubled over the last 
five years. 

Changing Concepts Of 
God Exposed By May 

Reverend William P. May, As- 
sistant Professor of Religion at 
Smith College, compared ancient 
and modern concepts of the "Pear 
of God" in Chapel Sunday. 

According to Reverend May, 
early conceptions of God were of a 
Lord far removed from man. In 
the early twentieth century, the 
trend was toward a more worldly, 
less removed God. In the 20's, Rev- 
erend May stated, the popular be- 
lief was that, "God had more to 
fear from Mencken than Mencken 
had to fear from God." Today, the 
pendulum has swung back to an 
appreciation of "God is God, man 
is man." 

Questions Modern Views 

Yet, Reverend May questions this 
modern Interpretation of God. He 
sees the reading of modern theo- 
logists such as Niehbur as giving 
great strength to monotheistic 
ideas. The problem, he said, is that 
this God may become a spectral 
being in the eyes of men. 

Mr. May sees much greater 
strength in the Psalmists' concep- 
tion of God. He is far from man, 
yet he is father, shepherd, and hus- 
band of mankind. "Pear of God, 
finally, is love of God." 

Preliminary Screening 

The approximately four hundred 
acceptances are chosen from over 
2500 preliminary applications re- 
duced to some 1500 completed ap- 
plications primarily by school gui- 
dance authorities. These final ap- 
plicants are "of the highest cali- 
bre," in Copeland's words, due to 
this careful screening. 

While there can be little speci- 
fic information about the class un- 
til its composition is known, an 
effort was made this year to se- 
cure a wider geographical repre- 
sentation with the West Coast re- 
ceiving a higher number of accep- 
tances. Copeland comments that 
the class ought to prove to be "very 
stimulating to teach." Amherst, 
Wesleyan and Bowdoin sent their 
acceptances at the same time. 

Poetry To Be Read 

Tomorrow evening at 8:30 in 
the Cluett Room of the Law- 
rence Art Museum there will be 
a poetry reading open to the 
public featuring creative work 
done by Williams students. 

This event under the auspices 
of William Jay Smith, the in- 
structor of English Composition 
4, will be the first public read- 
ing of this sort in the history of 
the college. The program will 
feature poetry in its many forms 
and will contain both humorous 
and serious works.

tations be distributed to sopho- 
mores going through rushing until 
every sophomore has received an

first motion does not pass) will a-

3) That the house lif the 
first two motions do not>sub- 
scribes in theory to total opportun- 
ity — that is. the idea that all soph- 
omores who wish to join a house 
be given the opportunity to do so. 
In its report, the committee, 
hepded by Tim Coburn '60, took a 
directly opposite view: "The em- 
phasis placed on total opportunity 
in the past is not necessary for 
the coming year." Members of the 
committee voiced the opinion that 
the Griffin-Hyland motions would 
tend to emphasize the implication 
that everyone should wish to join 
a fraternity. Accordingly, the com- 
mittee would encourage the for- 
mation of a suitable social alterna- 
tive to fraternities much like the 
old Garfield Club. The committee 
stated, however, that "such an or- 
ganization will be founded only 
when an interested nucleus of non- 
fraternity men band together of 
their own volition." It was empha- 
sized that houses can not be forced 
to take men they don't want due 
to the fact that a man picked up 
under these conditions would be 
unhappy in a house in which he 
was not welcome.

Charles Cole, President Oi Amherst 
Announces 1960 Resignation Plans 

Dr. Charles W. Cole, President 
of Amherst College since 1946 will 
resign in 1960, John J. McCloy, 
Chairman of the Amherst board of 
trustees announced Monday. 

In his letter of resignation to 
the board. Cole said, "For -some 
years I have had an increasing de- 
sire to return to what I have al- 
ways regarded as my real vocation 
— teaching, research and writing. 
I am, therefore, tendering my res- 
ignation as president of the college 
to be effective in 1960." 

"Appropriate Timing" 

"This timing seems to me ap- 
propriate," he continued. "I think 
that the revitalizing effect of a rel 
atively frequent change of leader- 
ship has been good for the college. 
In addition, educational conditions 
are going to be so different in the 
coming decade from what they 
have been since 1946 that they will 
best be faced by a new administra- 
tion with new ideas, new proce- 
dures and the flexibility inherent 
in a new start." 

McCloy expressed deep regret 
at Cole's resignation. "President 
Cole has given Amherst one of the 
most distinguished administrations 
in its entire history," he said. "He 
is a man of great vigor, both in 
I respect to ideas and industn 

Cole, who is 53, graduated from 
Amherst in 1927, He received a 
Ph. D. from Columbia in 1931. Af-

The rushing question 

The houses 7nust comniil theiusclDes to the 
pledgin<^ of cvenj sophomore who (^ocu throxi^i 
rushing in order to develop the sense of social 
responsihilitii essential to the maintenance of 

There are people who should not become mem- 
bers of fraternities because thei/ are not interest- 
ed in close association loith other sudents. 

These two positions are not mutually exclusive— 
yet the proponents of these ideas foi-med oppos- 
ing ranks in Monday's College Council— Social 
Council rushing meeting. 

Although the Rushing Committee characterized 
its recommended changes in the Rushing Agree- 
ment as "modest," the underlying ideas of the 
report constitute a new approach to the idea that 
all students who so desii 'i should be admitted 
to a fraternity. Recent Councils have pushed for 
"total opportunity" iilmost to the point of in- 
culcating in freshmen ;:he idea that fraternity 
life is totally desirable for the whole population 
of the College. Tim Coburn's committee admits 
that everyone is not happy as a fraternity mem- 
ber; they urge that the freshman should actively 
consider whether or not he wishes to join a house. 
Assuming this basic decision is made carefully, 
they say that those who decide to join will and 
indeed ought to find a place in a house. 

The Hyland-Griffin amendment renews tlie 
emphasis on "total op]iortunity" which in its lim- 
ited context has many interpretations. Due to 
the almost dogmatic insistence on this broad- 
cast goal of the rushing system recently, "total 
opportunity" today does assume— whether or not 
its proponents admit it— that it is desirable for 
a freshman to join a liouse. Such an interpreta- 
tion results too from the lack of a suitable social 

It would be a greater and finer result for houses 
and ru.shees, if after rushing next fall it were 
found that all who desired to join had been ac- 
commodated and that those who did not so de- 
sire were able to form for themselves a social 
group without bitterness. —editors 

Honors program 

One of the most important aspects of the cur- 
ricuhim, one that Williams has been particularly 
proud of, is the Honors Program. The program 
offers qualified students not only a chance to 
pursue more intensive study in a given field but 
also an opportunity to graduate with an honors 

A trend toward greater honors participation, 
which began mainly with the class of 1960, has 
continuedin the class of 1961. In the two classes 
combined, a total of 251 students will be en.. 
rolled in the Honors Program next year— ahnost 
50 per cent of all who are eligible. 

This development is somewhat appalling. The 
program next year will merely separate the up- 
perclassmen into first and .second-class students. 
Even now seminars are numbering close to twen- 
ty students when they were originally designed 
for a maximum of ten. 

Although this trend toward greater enrollment 
may tend to raise the intellectual vitality of 
the college, overpopulation may very well water 
down the entire program. With so many stu- 
dents, honors seminars become indistinguishable 
from ordinary classes. 

Let's also look at it froin the faculty side; honors 
take more time from each professor than any 
other part of his schedule. Such an increase in 
honors participatiori as is taking place is prac- 
tically prohibitive of an effective program at 
Williams, where many instructors are overloaded 
with class hours. 

The Honors Program is something that should 
be studied by the faculty in the near future. Tlic 
RECORD would appreciate comment on it from 
any quarter. -wheelock 

Turkeys and odd-balls 

Critics of the Williams atmosphere would have 
one believe that the College cannot retain its 
small college honiogenaietv without stifling in- 
dividuality and discouraging intellectual activity 
even to the extent of inhiliiting "creativity." 
It is unfortunate that individuality and creativity 
among other traits have come to describe a ra- 
ther petulant minoiity at Williams. In fact, these 
are attributes which the college seeks to en- 
courage. Such characteristics are usually culti- 
vated consciously by those who for many rea- 
reasons do not have a rapport with Williams 
and its values which most students unconsciously 
share. Individuality, non-conformity, intellectua- 
lism among others have become polite labels for 
those who in common parlance are known as 
"turkeys and oddballs." 

Such a course defends these people from tlie ne- 
cessitv of association with others; they speak, 
act and even assume that they think in such 
a way as to show everyone that they are "dif- 

Since individuality, creativity and tlie intellec- 
tual life are the dogma of the peojjle who don't 
like Williams, the greater proportion of students 
tend to avoid such labels. Their avoidance does 
not constitute a merger in support of the grand 
old traditions of the ivy league nor does it imply 
a cessation of the thinking processes. 
The greatest ]3ossible danger in such a situation 
is that the dissenters may promote in others the 
very lack of individual values and opinions of 
which they see themselves to be sole defenders. 
.\t present they provide a stimulus in certain 
areas of thought; they could, however, be far 
more effective were they actual individuals ra- 
ther than a concenti-ated minority of vitriolic op-

editorials, letters, features 



It was a good weekend, just past. 

The frost was almost off the golf course 
and moreover, the sun was shining. It was one 
of those times when there is a relief from hour 
tests, and when exams and term papers have 
not yet their characteristic urgency. 

Buying some tonic water downtown, a pro- 
fessor remarked that the weather had better 
get worse pretty soon or nobody will go to classes 
at all. Another in a Saturday class wondered if 
anyone had done the assignment. 

Abroad, everybody said wasn't it good that 
Foster Dulles was flat out and in Washington 
Chris Herter found out that he was physically 
fit to take over in the Secretary's old job. 

Ill Williamstown last weekend, the spring 
doldrums gave a rosy glow to the ivory tower, 
and we fortified ourselves for the planned week- 
ends and library days ahead by walking in the 
sun. —castle

Subject: The Military Draft 

To: D. E. Steward, c/o Williams Record 

1. Reference; "Viewpoint", Williams Rec- 
ord, dtd. 8 Apr. '59. 

2, Everyone likes to beat their gums about 
the draft, but to no avail. The draft remains a 
necessary evil— for it is Uie only proven way to 
provide our valued miUtary wim somewhat suf- 
ficient cold wa^ strength. We are nowhere near 
pushbutton warriors, yet. Voluntary enlistment, 
under the present conditions, will never be nu- 
merous enough to meet the need. The active 
reserves have failed, are failing, and probably 
will be expectqd to fail to provide a combat- 
rc^ady pool of trained personnel. If we deplore 
the draft, an alternative must be sought. When 
Mr. Steward speaks of the draft as 'an institu- 
tion which has no traditional place in the Amer- 
ican System" is what we make it, today. Until 
an acceptable alternative is found to meet the 
present needs, we, individually and collectively, 
have to learn to live with and make the best of 
the present situation.

Everyone has a characteristic 
way of reacting to each new sen- 
sation. Some plunge through life 
with significant landmarks seen 
only as telephone poles are glimp- 
sed from a speeding train. Others 
hold back — either to study more 
closely the landmarks or because 
they are afraid to approach their 
present horizon. No person escapes 
the sensation of time. We cannot 
but feel as though we are standing 
on a pile of fine sand which is sift- 
ing through a sieve. 

The number of years lived by a 
person is usually in direct propor- 
tion to the number of times he 
thinlis to himself that, "my, this 
winter went fast," or that "it can't 
be three years since I saw you 
last." With increasing age comes a 
greater awareness of time. By the 
senior year in college a person 
watches the social pages to find 
girls he has known who are already 
getting married. Soon he will be 
watching his alumni bulletin and 
will later end his life in a daily 
search of the TIMES obituary. 

All human endeavor Is under- 
taken within the defined limits of 
time. The more ordered a peisun's 
existence, the more scheduled is lUs 
activity. It Is a civilization oi the 
sweep second hand. It Is silly to 
discount the value of a certain 
element of plarmlng, of .soiling 
aside so much time for thi.s and 
so much time for that. A cii .lee 
of this sort of oi'ganlzation L an 
indispensable prerequisite for i on- 
structive endeavor. Yet there is a 
stifling effect on the value of (his 
endeavor if the method overshad- 
ows the action Itself.

Committee Offers 
Rushing Changes 

five proposals were presented to 
tlie joint meeting of the College 
and Social Councils Monday night 
by Rushing Committee chairman 
Tim Coburn '60. Final action on 
the |)roposals will be taken at an- 
other joint meeting Tuesday night. 

The committee recommended 
that the rushing period be moved 
up Ihree days (Sept. 13-19) coinci- 
(jini; with Freshman orientation 


Another change would involve 
scheduling the pref and sub-prcf 
periods at dinnertime September 
17 iiiid 18. This would alleviate tho 
strain on the Student Union din- 
ini; hall. 

I he committee also proposed a 
stiffening of the penalty for de- 
plrtlging, forbidding a sophomore 
who has depledged from a frater- 
njtv from receiving a bid, formal 
or informal, until after sprinu va- 

Another recommendation was the 
appointment of an assistant to 
Ru.shing Arbiter Franlc Thorns '30. 
The assistant would receive a sal- 
ary of $80, replacing one of the se- 
cretaries employed this year. 

The committee also proposed 
thai a rushing committee member

chance. He knows exactly what he 
will be doing two days and two 
weeks, and even two years from 
the day that he is doing the same 
Uiing that he was doing two weeks 
before. He has ordered his exis- 
lence on well-considered thoughts 
taken at some point in his life 
when he subjectively became sure 
of things. He may change, but once

feels on firm ground, for: the care-

of the industrious, predictability 
is equated with virtue, and "the

business world.

fashion, he is undercut by eddies

milkman is a slave to his route, he, 
as a human being, is capable of

CreatesHaunting View 

. . the story of a city, its people 
and the year 1905. The structure of 
the novel is such that all three are 
inherent in its meaning, and no 
smgle aspect of the world he has 
created so realistically and drama- 
tically may be deleted. Written by 
a poei, the characters are secon- 
dary LO the overall effect, and they 
seem to be in many respects merely 
an echo of the city of Peter the 
Great and the mighty river Neva. 

This book has reached an En- 
glish speaking audience lor ihe 
first time, thanks to a tine trans- 
lation by John Cournos, but since 
its Ru.ssian publication in 1913 a 
has had a powerful influence on 
the Ru.ssian intellectual. It is writ- 
Len in a haunting and fast niovins 
stream of conciousness style whici; 
draws tlic reader into the era and 
its customs. 

"Diesent Magazine", an Inde- 
pendent quarterly of democratic 
socialist opinion, is sponsoring 
a forum entitled "American 
Soc'iety and Radical Values" at 
Yale on their houseparty week- 
end. Among the speakers in 
the symposium that runs from 
Saturday morning through Sun- 
day afternoon are Dr. Lewis 
Coser, Professor of Sociology at 
Brandcis, and B. J. Widick, a 
leader of the United Auto Work- 
ers. The subjects to be discussed 
range from the current arma- 
ment race to labor problems. 

"Have you heard this October 
sonu of the year 1905" is the do- 
minant theme of the mooc Biely 
lias created, and in discovering his 
"October song" he reveals Russia 
and her Tsarist capitol. The 
straight ordered prospects of Pe- 
tersburg come alive with their "one 
indubitable quality: they transform 
the fiKures of pa.ssers-by into sha- 
dow.s". The characters of the work 
never quite lose their tendency to 
be shadows, as they merge with 
l-lie sounds, the visions, the mists, 
from t!ie eternal swamp. 

The Ru.s.sia of 1S05, divided be- 
iv.'ocn the misguidod terrorists and 
llie almost equally deranged bu- 
reaucrats, is stirringly symbolized 
Ijy the "enigjiiatic Bronze Horse- 
man", a statue of the builder of 
the city. "Russia that bronze .steed 
is your .symbol ! Your fore hoots are 
plunging in darkness, in emptiness; 
ixit your hind hoofs have taken 
deep roots in the granite soil." It 
is this destiny, this future that 
concerns the author. 

The compulsive quality of the 
ancient conflict between father 
and son, evolves around a simple 
.sardine tin which contains a bomb. 
The disillusionment, dejection, and 
tlie nihilist attitude of each set 
the tone of the novel, and the fi- 
nal hopelessness of both when the 
bomb explodes doing little damage 
is Biely's final rejection of both 
factions and his challenge to each 
to provide the answer.

White-water Kayaking Williams Fad

Devotees of new pastime seek new thrills as their sliver thin boats

is perhaps best expressed by one

"Long-range programs are important 
—for both men and missiles" 

"In a company dedicated to research and development, 
a young man's opportunities to learn more -to increase 
his technical skills-are almost unlimited," says 31-year- 
old Harry Lawton, Jr., a General Electric engineer 
engaged in tho development of inertial guidance and 
fire-control systems for ballistic missiles. "And to main- 
tain America's scientific leadership, we're going to need 
all the technical training and skills we can produce. 

"An important aspect of my job at General Electric 
is the continuing opportunity to learn more. I've been 
able to continue my education in the company's Physics 
Program for college graduates. And I also have the 
advantage of association with top technical experts in 
my work. Opportunities like this have helped me real- 
ize that long-range programs are important— for both 
men and missiles." 

Harry Lawton is one of several hundred technical 
graduates who are devoting their skills to the develop- 

ment of 14 government missile projects to which General 
Electric is a major contributor. More and more our 
scientific progress and our national security depend on 
men like this — men who bring high qualifications to 
their work and who continue their quest for knowledge, 
both on and off the job. 

General Electric believes that individual initiative 
and career growth are essential to America's continued 
technological leadership. To this end, the company en- 
courages all of its employees — including more than 
30,000 college graduates — to develop to their fullest 
capabilities by providing opportunities for increasing 
knowledge and working skills. 

Bvgress Is Our Most fmporfant T*roducf 


Lane Faison Explains 
Art Museum Purpose 



"Broader horizons" 

Bi/ Biujanl Bastcdo 

Professor S. Lane Faison, the Head of the Art Department, 
ghinced up from tlic job he was doing in the silence of the Law- 
rence Art Mnsenin. "So you want to find ont about the Museum, 
eh? Just wait a second till I finish 
sorting these color slides . . ." 

Broad Horizons 

According to Faison, the Art 
Department has much broader hor- 
izons than merely educating a rel- 
atively small part of the Williams 
student body. It makes a cultural 
contribution to tlie whole college 
and to the inhabitants of Wil- 


This contribution talces mainly 
the form of the temporary art ex- 
hibits, which are changed about 8 
times per year at 3 week intervals. 
The Art Department does not com- 
pile its own shows; the time needed 
for such a job is too great. "Rath- 
er," Faison explained, "we neces- 
sarily depend on organizations 
which supply packaged shows for 
rent. Two institutions we rely on 
very heavily are the Museum of 
Modern Ait and the Smithsonian 
Institution. Once, we got a won- 
derful show of Goya prints from 
the Metropolitan Museum of Art. 
We rent these exhibits with money 
budgeted us by the college." 

The quality of these shows at the 
Lawrence Art Museum are often 
excellent. The last one, for in- 
stance, consisted of pictures of ar- 
tistic personalities by several well- 
known photographers, among them 
such a master as Arnold Newman. 
The next show, beginning today, 
is "The Anatomy of Nature," by 
world-famous photographer, An- 
dreas Feininger. 


Estimating tlie attendance of the 
art exhibits, Faison chuckled and 
commented, "Well, we do a little 
multiplying and come out with 
about the population of Williams- 
town. It's really almost impossible 
to tell, of course, but outside of 
students who have classes here in 
the museum, I'd guess about 1500 
a year come." 

Permanent Collection 

The other way the Art Depart- 
ment contributes to the cultural 
life of Williamstown and the Col- 
lege is through its permanent art 
collection. Some of the more note- 
worthy items are, according to Pro- 
fessor Faison's book, A Guide to 
the Art Museums of New England, 
"important works of Medieval and 
Renaissance art" and a "collection 
of Spanish paintings and Spanish 
and Italian furniture." 

Dealings with Clark Institute 

The Department's relationship 
with the Clark Art Institute is 
drawing closer. Faison comments, 
"The Art Institute has made life 
a lot simpler because we don't have 
to have a little of everything." We 
ourselves possess ancient, medieval, 
and contemporary art, while they 
have European art — except Span- 
ish, which we have — from 1400 
to 1900. So their collection dove- 
tails, with almost no overlapping, 
into ours, which is very helpful to 
our teaching program." 

For the first time, furthermore, 
a senior course will meet primarily 
in the Clark museum this year. In 
addition. Art 3 uses its facilities a 
great deal, with the 1-2 class going 
several times a year.

Talkative Coach Chaffee Comments On His Life 

by Stew Davis 

"You've got to have patience; 
it'll beat a lot of guys; I'll grant 
you that," said Coach Clarence 
Chaffee to one of his varsity ten- 
nis players. Day after day he can 
be found at the courts giving per- 
tinent advice and demonstrating 
the right shots. He told me calm- 
ly: "Don't yell across the courts; 
they're playing a match", and then 
turned to talk tennis with one of 
his freshmen. 

Brown Graduate 

Chafe graduated from Brown in 
1924. While there he distinguished 
himself by being elected president 
of his Zeta Psi chapter. As an atli- 
lete he played three years of bas- 
ketball and two of tennis, as well 
as baseball as a freshman and 
football as a senior. 

As a sportsman himself Chafe 
commented "I bloomed too late." 
He started squash at the age of 31 
and soon advanced to Class A in 
New York City. After tlie war he 
entered the national seniors tour- 
nament and was beaten in the 
semi-finals, 3-2. In tennis he has 
at various times held rankings in 
the Eastern association, the North 
East, and the Mid West, "none very 
high at all". However, he was 
ranked first in New England se- 
niors in '55. 

Successful Coach 

When Chafe came to Williams in 

'37 he was made frosh soccer 

I coach; in the winter he coached 

"I bloomed too late" 

both squash teams, and took ten- 
nis that spring. Since then his 
various racquet teams have usually 
been triumpliant. In tennis, lie 
mentioned, "My guys have won 
more New England singles and 
doubles than any other little col- 
lege squad." 

Chafe is optimistic atwut tlie up- 
coming season after a mediocre 5-5 
record last year and a 2-2 record 
on the spring trip. "Amherst has 

only beaten me about four times " 
he said, and he plans to win back 
the Little Three crown from them 
He said, "The singles are pretty 
good; I'm trying to find good com- 
binatlons in doubles — it's still ear. 
ly." He predicted, "We have a 
chance to go 9-3, if we're not rain- 
ed out . . ." Then he matter-ofi 
factly ticked off on his fingers the 
teams Williams should beat. 

Outside Interests 

For his free time. Chafe con- 
ceded, "Skiing is my favorite 
sport." Also the tanned coach said 
"I like to fiddle around my place' 
I raise vegetables in the summer 
and flowers." Then with a twhikle 
in his eye he proudly described lils 
oldest child, Pi'anny, who gradua- 
ted from Vassar in '55. Besides he- 
Ing a Junior Phi Bete, president of 
the school, and a member of llie 
octet, she's "a various, humorous 
young lady" according to her fa- 
ther. His younger daughter, Alice, 
13, lives with him and his wife in 
Williamstown, while his son, Roger, 
is a sophomore at Williams.

Frosh Nine Wins On 
Six Hitter Of Sargent 

Paced by the pitching of John 
Sargent and the hitting of Bill 
Ryan and Jolm Newton, the Presli- 
men baseball team defeated Hotch- 
kiss 3-1 on Saturday. Saigent, go- 
ing nine innings, gave up only six 
hits and was never seriously 
threatened by the weak hitting 
Hotchkiss squad as Williams scored 
early and had completed its scoring 
for the day before the HotchkLss 
nine managed to tally. 

Hotchkiss was behind from the 
first inning as Ryan led off with a 
single for Williams, was advanced 
to second by Bell's bunt, and was 
driven home by Newton's single 
through the middle. 

The second inning was almost a 
repetition of the first as Ryan sin- 
gled and was driven home by the 
two out double of Murray Ingra- 

The score remained 2-0 until the 
seventh when Pete Cotton led off 
with a single and was followed by

Track Team Finishes 
Second In B. U. Meet 

Golfers Place Third 
Behind Harvard And 
B. C. As Julius Stars 

The Williams golf team began 
the new season on a rather dis- 
couraging note Satui'day, as they 
placed third among four teams in 
a match held at the Oakley Golf 
Club in Watertown, Massachusetts. 

The Eph golfers drubbed MIT 
6-1, but lost to Harvard 4-3 and 
to Boston College by a score of 4/2 
to 2!i. Five Williams golfers won 
two out of three of their matches, 
but the team could not combine all 
its scores to finish any better than 
third place. 

Julius Plays No. 1 

Before the match Captain Hans 
Halligan and Bob Julius flipped a 
coin to determine who would play 
in the number one spot. Julius won 
the toss and went on to card the 
team's best score of the day with 
a 76. He won two of his matches, 
but a loss to his Harvard opponent 
marked his first varsity golf de- 
feat at Williams. Halligan ran in- 
to a streak of bad luck as he four- 
putted three of the fii'st nine 
greens. The usually dependable 
golfer lost all three of his matches 
for the worst day in his three year 
varsity golf career. Sammy Davis 
lost his match to Harvard but tied 
BC and beat MIT. Bill Tuach, Pete 
Hager, and Andy MacKechnie lost 
their matches to BC while winning 
their other two, and Mike Beemer 
lost his match to Harvard but out- 
stroked his other opponents to 
gain two victories. 

"It was a combination of every- 
one having a bad day", remarked 
Halligan, but he expressed confi- 
dence in the team's ability to do 
much better in future matches.

Frosh Lacrosse 
In Action Today 

The freshman lacrosse team 
opens its season today with a 
game at Mt. Hermon. A highly en- 
thusiastic team will enter the game 
with hopes of continuing 'Williams' 
mastery over Mt. Hermon for the 
past three years. 

Saturday's Scrimmage 

The team lost a scrimmage to 
the "J. V.'s" 7-4 last Satui'day but 
showed marked improvement 
throughout the second half. De- 
fense, in general, and more espe 
daily, the problem of clearing the 
ball out of the defensive area still 
seem to be the major problems 
facing the team. Throughout most 
of the game the attack and mid 
fields showed an ability to move 
the ball around, and although their 
scoring was not as powerful as had 
been hoped, inexperience seems to 
be the only problem in this area. 
Starting Team 

Today's starting team will prob- 
ably be made up of five players 
who have played lacrosse before 
coming to 'Williams and five who 
have not. Tom Bachman, Skip 
Rutherford, and Jon Hengesbach 
wiU handle the starting attack 
positions along with Frank Morse, 
John O'Donnell, and John Reld 
at mldfield. The defense will find 
Price Qripekoven, Howie Bass, and 
Dick McCauley checking any at- 
tempts by "Hermonites" to score. 
Pete McLean, Tomi Humphreys, or 
Bill Whitman will be in the goal.

track team placed second in a tri- 
angular meet with Boston Univer-

was victorious. 

In an awesome display Boston 
University swept the hammer, took 
three of the four places in the 
shot put, and three of the four 
places in the discus. John Lawler 
of B. U. set an individual and track 
record when he threw the 16 lb.

remarkable double in the 220 yd.

job in placing second. Co-Captains 
Bob Hatcher and George Sudduth 
did very well. Hatcher won the 
javelin with a toss of IGT'SK" and 
placed third in both the shot put 
and discus. Sudduth placed second 
in the 440 behind Ince and tied in 
the 880 with Bill Moomaw. 

The most unusual occurance of 
the day was the tie in the 880 yd. 
run. Sudduth and Moomaw of 'Wil- 
liams crossed the fini,sh line hand 
in hand to tie for first. Both run- 
ners had planned to do this.

Frosh Track To 
Oppose Deeriield 

This afternoon at 4:00 the 
freshman track team will meet its 
first opponent, a strong Deerfield 
squad, on Weston Field. 

The frosh are relying on the 
middle-distance and distance e- 
vents, the hurdles and the weights. 
Pete Ryan, Spike Kellogg, and Jim 
Evans are top milers, and Harry 
Lee should star in the half-mile. 
Dave Kieffer and John Kroh are 
expected to do well in the quarter, 
and ace hurdler Prank 'Ward 
should take this event. 

In the field events strength lies 
in the shotput and discus, and 
there are hopes for winning points 
in the javelin and hammer throw. 
Starkey, Fox, Wirth, and Hufnagel 
will be throwing for the Ephmen.

Prep School Debators To Compete; 
Adelphic Union Sponsors Tourney 

The annual Williams C;i)lk!fj;e Prep School Debate Toiunainent 
will 1)0 held here on Friday nifijht and Saturday niorniiif;, Ajiril 
24-25 under the auspices of the Adel|5hic Union. Each team will 
debate four rounds, two on Friday night and two Saturday 
morning, with tlie final champion 

ship round being held at 1:30 PM 
Saturday in 3 Griffin. Needless to 
say, spectators will be very wel- 
come. Tlie final round will be 
judged by Professor Stocking, Ens- 
lish. Harper, Classics, and Connol- 
ly, Chairman of the Public Speak- 
ing Department and Debate Coach. 
Debating Topic 

The topic under discussion is. 
"Resolved: Further developmonl 
of nuclear weapons should be pro- 
hibited by international agree- 
ment." This is the national colle- 
giate debating topic. As this topic 
is not the same as the national sec- 
ondary school debate topic, it is to 
be expected that new and fresh 
arguments will be presented by the 
participants who have not yet had 
the chance to dull their thinking 
by constant exposure to the old 
hat arguments used at the various 
college debate tournaments. 

The schools participating are, 
Choate, Mt. Hermon, Deerfield, the 
defending champions, Stratford, 
St. Mark's, Brunswick, Worcester, 
Hackley, Taft, Portsmouth, and 
Hotchkiss. Each team will send an 
entourage consisting of five people. 
Two debaters defending the resolu- 
tion, two against it, and a coach. 
The debates will be judged by the 
debate coaches of the participants. 
The debaters and their coaches will 
eat their meals in Baxter Hall and 
will be housed by the fraternities. 

The Adelphic Union will seek 
the cooperation of the student body 
in obtaining timekeepers for the 
debates. Gene Cassidy '62, Deba- 
ting Manager said, "This is the 
premier Adelphic Union event of 
the year. Past tournaments have 
been very successful, and we hope, 
with the cooperation of the stu- 
dents, to make this year's tourna- 
ment just as successful."

Ephsy Coeds Trek 
To Rabbit Hollow 

by Ben Campbell 

This Friday about twenty Wil- 
liams students and innumerable 
compatriots from such schools as 
Holyoke, Smith, and Amherst will 
strike out toward Winchester, 
N. H., tor an unusual sort of col- 
lege weekend. The destination is 
Rabbit Hollow, a little camp on a 
lake just ten miles north of North- 
field, Mass. 

During the summer Rabbit Hol- 
low and its sister camp, Forest 
Lake, are filled with underprivi- 
leged children from Harlem. In 
the Pall and Spring the composi- 
tion of the population changes to 
college students trying to get away 
from the everyday monotony of 
academics. They work to prepare 
the camps for the summer. 
A Twofold Attraction 

Jim Hartley '60, probably the 
foremost Rabbit Hollow addict on 
campus, expresses the attraction 
of the camp as a twofold one. 
"There is a joy in the escape from 
routine and in working together". 
Also, the inhabitants of Rabbit 
Hollow "perform a real service in 
improving the physical state of the 

A Varied Program 

The schedule of a weekend in 
Rabbit Hollow includes consider- 
able work on Friday and Saturday 
afternoons and Saturday and Sun- 
day mornings. In the everting dan- 
ces and recreation are held, and 
the weekenders retire in sleeping 
bags under the stars. There is a 
worship service Sunday morning. 

Pete Thorns '62, WCC Interschool 
Chairman, is organizing this week- 
end's trip. Cars will be leaving 
Williams Fi'iday afternoon and 
Saturday morning, to return Sun- 
day afternoon. Quipped Thoms, 
"One trip and you're sure to have

The camps in Rabbit Hollow 
were founded in 1942 by Jim Rob-

Hanson: Ephs Equal 'Settled Tea 

by Ernie Imhoff 

". . .differences between a large 
and .small college like Harvard and 
Williams are somewhat like a per- 
colating coffee pot and a settled 
cup of tea", Assistant Professor of 
German Harlon "Harpo" Hanson 
was musing tlie other day "With, 
of course things to say for both 
systems", he added quickly. 
Monolithic Williams 

"At an institution like Harvard, 
there exists currents of many di- 
rections, mutually Independent of 
each other while here one finds a 
structure more monolithic: depart- 
mental policies of the major course, 
for instance, being more openly 
stated. Thin, naturally, Williams 
has a more institutional philoso- 
phy, which has to be more force- 
fully rebuttL'd by the professor if 
he wants to change things." 

A product of Madison, Wiscon- 
sin, ("a nice place to come from") 
Harpo Hanson entered Harvard 
before the War i"out of curiosity") 
and graduated as a German ma- 
jor in 1948, after service in the 
army. The next year was spent in 
Europe on a traveling scholarship 
("with a stipulation of no formal 
study" 1 with the return meaning 
Harvard Graduate School and de- 
gree. Prom 1949 until his appoint- 
ment at Williams in the second 
semester of 1958, Mr. Hanson ser- 
ved at Harvard as teacher. Assis- 
tant to the Dean, senior tutor in a 
house and Du'ector of Advanced 

Germany Butter 

A mathematics buff, Mr. Han- 
son made his decision for the Ger- 
man major and teaching of Ger- 
man before his return to Harvard 
in 1946. "The excitement of Ger- 
many lies in its being an intellec- 
tual buffer zone in Europe, the 
combination of East and West, 
North and South, so that cross cur- 
rents between Paris and Moscow, 
Venice and Stockholm collide in 
this nation." 

"At Williams", he noted, "the 
German professor has a delightful 
atmosphere to work in. Other de- 
partments, as History and Art, are 
more apparently interested in as- 
pects of the German mind and 
culture than other places I've 
known. The students here, also in- 
dicate a higher proportion of con- 
cern in German courses, especially 
at the 5-6 level and higher, for a 
more latent field of interest than 
at Harvard." 

Following the cigarette ignition 

pause ("making the interview now 

genuine"), Hanson continued on 

Williams. "Teaching at such a col- 

I lege without the graduate level is 

' so refreshing because, with the ab-

Professor Hanson, commenting 
on the tendency towards confor- 
mity evident at Williams, stated, 
"Perhaps outside the class, stu- 
dents here tend to be rather 
'groupy', which is not the healthi- 
est thing since the group is on a 
lower level than the individual. 
An all-college tax on a housepar- 

ty, for instance, could never hav» 
gotten off the ground at a moiv 
individual-minded .school." Han 
son illustrated. "The basic aim of 
every student should be learning tn

With the prolific flair for ana-

School Debaters 
Vie For Trophy 

With early rounds this evening 
and concluding matches tomorrow, 
the Third Annual Williams Prepa- 
lalory School Debate Tournament 
will he held here tonight and Sat- 
urday. Debaters from the ten 
schools represented — Mt. Hermon, 
Dcerfield, Choate, Stratford Higli,, St. Mark's Brunswick, 
Worcester, Portsmouth Priory, 
'I'aft, and Hackley — will compete in 
tlie Adelphic Union - sponsored 
tourney on the topic "That the 
United Nations Should Have Co- 
licive Power". 

Calibre Of Speeches 

Adelphic Union advisor Profes- 
.sor George G. Connelly commend - 
I'd the calibre of the speeches 
which are presented by the secon- 
dary school debaters. "You can be 
^ure that every year they have been 
vi'iy good. The competition for the 
liandsome cup awarded to the win- 
nuig team is exceptionally keen. 
'Ihey take it very seriously and 
prepare excellent cases." In ern- 
pluisizing the outstanding nature 
of this prep-school tournament 
f'onnelly commented that this is 

■ an activity that is more closely 
I onnected with the intellectual life 
"i the campus than any other." 

Best Speaker Returns 
This year the individual speak- 
' IS are headed by Stratford High 
■"-'Jhool's Lutz Berkner, who last 
•lar earned selection as the tour- 
: lament's best negative debater. 
•Stratford's team can also claim 
'he distinction of including the 

■ uly two female speakers to rep- 
n'sent their schools in the debates. 

Adelphic Union President Mike 
IHvely, '61, pointed out a particu- 
l.niy interesting feature of the 
iournament. "These debates pro- 
vide extremely fine public relations 
lor the college. As well as seeing 
Hie campus, team members get an 
I'xceptional view of the life here 
ill Williams by spending the night 
111 a fraternity house." 

We quote from "An Acknow- 
ledgement" in the book "War 
is a Private Affair" by Edmund 
'ove, published this week: 

"When I first went to the Pa- 
cific, I had one assistant, a tall, 
somewhat solemn corporal. He 
wanted to write history badly, 
but every general I came across 
would bridle at the thought of a 
corporal writing his history . . . 
I shall always remember him as

Glee Club To Present ^King David'; 
Dr. Yellin Directs Combined Groups 

For the first time in this area 
the original version of "King Dav- 
id" will be heard this Sunday af- 
ternoon at 3:00 in Chapin Hall. 
Tlie Williams Glee Club, combin- 
ed with the Sarah Lawrence Cho- 
rus and a small orchestra, will be 
led by Victor Yellin. 

Written over thirty years ago as 
a biblical drama illustrating the 
five stages of David's life as a 
shepherd, warrior, king, sinner and 
patriarch, "King David" is perhaps 
the most popular single work of 
our time. The cam.poser, Arthur 
Honegger, who died recently, was a 
member of the famous group of 
French composers in the early 
1920's called 'Les Six'. Under the 
leadership of Erik Satie, they .suc- 
cessfully reshaped French musical 
composition, combining the tradi- 
tional Gaellic love of long melodic 

Bishop Bayne, Eminent Clergyman, 
Gives Views On Religion, Education 

By Bill Bissell 

"The universal problem of both 
Protestantism and Catholicism is 
the problem of relevancy . . . The 
first step toward relevancy is a 
step toward reunion. The more the 
Church is divided, the more it be- 
comes a club." This is how the 
Right Rev. Stephen Feilding Bayne 
Jr.! Bishop of the Episcopal Dio- 
cese of Olympia, Washington ( Se- 
attle i, explains the importance of 
his task as co-ordinator-in-chief of 
the 15 independent national chur- 
ches of the Anglican Communion. 

The first holder of the newly 
created position of Executive Of- 
ficer of the Anglican Communion ^^ 
expresses some bewilderment as to 
"the peculiar nature of this job . . . 
There is no organization ... I don't 
even know who pays me." Never- 
theless, the 51 year old cleric will 
assume the London, England post 
on January 1 determined to take 
advantage of "a tremendous op- 
portunity" to tackle what he feels 
is the foremost difficulty confront- 
ing the Anglican Church and all 
Christendom— co-ordination. 
A Layman's Clergyman 

Bishop Bayne is a man of sharp 
and incisive intellect who 


charms listeners with his easy ex 
planatory manner, but who is both 
willing and ready to elaborate his 
point to "anyone who wants to 
.scrap about it afterward." As au- 
thor of four books, and possessor 
of a clear, deep speaking voice, the 
Bishop has gained a reputation 
for his facility in relating religion 
to the things of the market place— 
for relevancy. He is more concern- 
ed with his role as a preacher than 
as a theologian, and in this sense 
is a layman's clergyman. TIME 
Magazine calls him "one of the 
most outspoken churchmen in the 
U S." and indeed there are a few 
topics about which Bishop Bayne 
does not possess an immediate op- 

Educational Reform 
As sometime chaplain at Smith 
College and Columbia University, 


a step toward relevancy 

lines with modernistic rhythms, 
orchestral color arid harmony. 
"King David" i.s an excellent ex- 
ample of this blending of tradition 
with novelty. To be sung and nar- 
rated in English, it tells the story 
and expresses the deep emotions 
of David as the various stages of 
his career from obscure shepherd 
to his death as king. 


The two singing groups will be 
accompanied by a thirteen piece 
orchestra from the Juilliard School 
of Music in New York. The story 
will be told by Robert Mathews '56 
as narrator, and Don Brown '59 
will sing tenor solo in his last ap- 
pearance at Williams. Mathews, of 
the Department of Drama, was di- 
rector of the recent AMT hit 
'Darkness At Noon'. With the or- 
chestra will be a celeste, a key- 
board instrument that has a bell- 
like sound, which was borrowed 
from the Boston Symphony Or- 

First Presentation 

The first performance of King 
David was successfully given last 
Saturday evening at Sarah Law- 
rence College under the direction 
of Harold Aks, conductor of the 
Sarah Lawrence group. Outstand- 
ing in the girls' chorus were three 
soloists; Mary Delson and Von 
Hawkins, soprano, and Jane Co- 
nant, contralto. The narrator at 
this last concert was Salvador 
Tom as. 

Yellin commented that this con- 
cert should be the highlight of the 
season for the Williams Glee Club 
and further stressed that members 
of the student body will be admit- 
ted free. 

Gul To Organize 
Junior Class For 
Yearbook Photos 

The new Gul staff has contract- 
ed with Merin Studios of Philadel- 
phia to photograph all Juniors for 
next year's yearbook on Tues. 
through Friday, April 28 — May 1. 

Editor John Byers has urged all 
Juniors to be on time for their ap- 
pointments, since it is a crowd- 
ed schedule and a missed sitting 
might very well mean no picture 
in the yearbook for the absentee. 
Byers has also issued reminder 
cards and organized a Gul tele- 
phone system in an effort to have 
every Junior photographed. In ad- 
dition to this he has requested that 
each fraternity president make re- 
gular announcements at the hous- 
es. The photography will be per- 
formed in the Gul office on the 
third floor of Jesup Hall and will 
cost three dollars per sitting, which 
in most cases will be put on the in- 
dividual's house bill. 

Photography Staff 

At the present time there have 
been few other proposals for next 
year's Gul initiated since the staff 
itself is not completely formed. 
Byers has decided to handle the 
general photography in an entire- 
ly different manner. There will be 
a regular yearbook photography 
staff which will film and e- 
quipment furnished by the Gul. All 
of the pictures will be processed by 
Merin Studios to insure uniform 
quality, and the desired size for 
the layout of the book. Anyone 
who is interested in photography 
is welcome to compete for this 

Sport Car Rallye 


With seemingly unlimited pow- 
er under their sleek hoods, twelve 
sports cars took off on a rallye 
'round the Green Mountains last 
weekend. An Alfa Romeo led the 
finishing six entries around the 
120 mile course. 

the New York born Amherst grad- 
uate ('28) has long held a special 
interest in education. "The ordi- 
nary American high school is the 
most elaborate waste of time a 
free society has yet devised." Hav- 
ing adopted "the Religion of The 
Optional God (title of one of Bis- 
hop Bayne's books) as the State 
religion," we are in grave danger 
from "the present crippling and 
imprisoning secularism" of our 
schools. The Bishop deplores what 
he sees as the collapsing educa- 
tional standards prevalent today, 
but he feels that reform must come 
"from the university down." 

"We were the generation of crazy 
idealists." Modern youth, he feels, 
is frightened by the enormous pres- 
sure of conformity. The increased 
study of philosophy and religion on 
American campuses indicates "a 
reaching after depth." Students to- 
day demand more than good ad- 
vice. "We could have a of 
good advice." 

Copeland Reports Careful Selection 
In Establishing Corporation Quotas 

"Although we seem to lie well out of the recession, the re- 
cruiting orifanizations are filliiifr their (quotas very carefidly. There 
is a much higher degree of selecti\ity than two vears ago." Tliis 
comment was made by Nhtnton G. Capeland in discussing tlie .suc- 
cess of the PJacenient Bmeau activities this year. 

125 seniors have taken part in 

the Placement Service so far this 
year, compared to 126 for last year. 
The company in which the sen- 
iors showed the most interest was 
Proctor and Gamble, which inter- 
viewed 43 students in three cata- 
gories: sales, brand management 
and sales management. Second in 
number of students interviewed 
was United States Steel which 
screened 26. Third was General 
Motors, talking to 23. 

No final statistics are available 
yet on the success of this year's 
program as compared to previous 
years. Copeland noted, however, 
that the program has, on the 
whole, .stepped up over the past 

The Placement Bureau also pro- 
vides an Alumni Placement Ser- 
vice. Copeland stated that from 
June 3. 1958 to April 1, 1959, 104 
alumni sought the aid of this ser- 
vice and that 51 of these had .sub- 
sequently been placed. 

Nine Houses Endorse 
New RECORD Plan 

Nine houses have to date voted 
to buy The Williams RECORD for 
next year at the special group rates 
for fraternities. 

Pleased with the response, Stu 
Levy, director of the Record sub- 
scription campaign, commented, 
"We now feel that our work on the 
Record is of real value, since the 
campus, for which the paper [is 
primarily written, is now reading 

Six houses. Alpha Delta Phi, Be- 
ta Theta Pi, Delta Kappa Epsilon. 
Kappa Alpha, Psi Upsilon, and

~ Commitment necessary 

A joint session of tlic C^ollej^e C^'ouiicil and the 
Social Council has offered Williams fraternities 
three alternatives. One of these is that the fra- 
ternities a|)prove total o|)|5()rtnnity in princi]5le" 
—essentially the same ideal that has been ac- 
cepted by the fraternities for the past two years. 
The other two are far more radical in that they 
are an attempt to "put teeth" into total oppor- 

The problem, everyone seems to aj^ree, is to de- 
cide what Williams wants from its social system. 
These proposals re)5resent one solution to this 

By lej^islating total op|3ortunitv Williams will ac- 
knovvledf^e a fundamental change in its scK'ial 
.system. Fraternities would then have started on 
the road to a system of non-selective social clubs. 
C)|)|)onents of the fraternity say that clubs would 
jDrovide all of the advantages of the houses— 
chiefly social facilities— without snobbery. 

By rejecting these jjroposals Williams may tem- 
porarily maintain an admittedly unsatisfactory 
status quo, a situation which could easily be 
changecl by the administration in the near fu- 

The third alternative is the most difficult. This 
would he to de\elo|3 a strong noii-affiliate grou]). 
The success of such a course might lead, in the 
long run, to a reduction of the number of houses 
and/or to a reduction of the number of members 
in each house. This ]30ssibility could bring ser- 
ious financial difficulties for some houses but 
it would affirm the exclusive nature of frater- 
nity membership and provide a reasonable al- 
ternative to fraternal life. 

Each of these solutions has both advantages and 
disadvantages, but it is essential that the houses 
commit themselves fully to one— the present 
situation will not last. —editors

Group action is a eoniplieated ijhenomeiioii. 
A single person either docs or does not do. lie

Group action is necessary, for without it 
there would be social anarchy. But with num- 
bers a certain impersonality develops which is 
an implicit characteristic of joint action. This 
im|)ers()nality is often an undesirable thing. The 
individual ego is overrun, sensitivity is violated, 
aiul pri\acv is imaded. Tliese are results which 
all individuals learn to absorb. 

When the wishes of the grou]3 become in- 
hibiting impositions, an unhealthy element is 
present. Decisions result with which few indi- 
viduals concur. An overbiding conservatism— 
an atmosphere not conducive to constructive 
change— characteristically develops. 

Group complacency results without constant 
critical evaluation from within a group itself. 
Without this introspection a group is prone to 
exploitation or abuse. This is the old story of

unresponsive social groups. 

Intrinsically the group cannot act with the 
genius of the individual, liut where an excep-

It was dark in the little sleeping bag. Miguel pulled of! 
one boot. He jjulled off the other boot. His mind was on 
the beer. Not far off, the colorful turos were strumming 
on their mucliadios. The wind was restless in the trees. 
He thought of the beer. 

"I will have the Schaefer now. The beer." brought it to him. "What do you hear in the best 
of circles?" she asked. "Schaefer all around!" he said. 
It was a little ritual they had between them. It was a 
very good ritual. She watched him drink la cerveza real— 
the real beer. "How goes it?" she .said. She was Washing. 

"It goes well. It is of the palate. It is of the throat." 

"Has it a smooth round davor?" 

"It has a smooth round flavor." <^«»'''"^-*'^''Jni4 

"What does round mean?" She 
was afraid he would think her 
a fool. 


"You areafool,"hesaid. "Round 
means never sharp, round means "C 
never flat." 

"The Schaefer beer is round," she smiled. 

"I drink to you, ?»/ vida," he said. 

"I drink to you, dumbkopf.,'' she said. 

They were quiet together, thinking of the Schaefer. 
Somewhere the ronquintadores began to sing softly. The 
time of the Schaefer was a good time. 


Varsity Tennis, Baseball, Track To

The Eph netmen open their sea- 
son this weekend with away mat- 
ches against R. P. I. Friday and 
M. I. T. Monday. 

With .sophomore Bruce Brian op- 
ening in the first singles spot, the 
Purple feature a sophomore stud- 
ded lineup, including Clyde Buck 
and John Leathers, numbers 2 and 
6 respectively. While somewhat 
lacking in varsity experience, the 
squad has considerable depth in 
singles and should make a strong

Davidson Unbeaten on Trip 

Counted on to continue his fine 
play is Captain Tom Davidson, who 
did not lose in either singles or 
doubles on the spring trip and 
who should do well at the third 
position. Also counted on heavily 
is Greg Tobin, the only junior 

The addition of senior Joe Tur- 
ner to the squad at the number 5 
position makes the team stronger 
than the one which compiled a 
record of two wins and two Icsses 
on the spring trip. 

Undefeated on Trip 


This weekend will be a one 
for Coach Bobby Coombs' baseball 
team as they face Bowdoin, Wes- 
leyan, and Middlebury on Friday, 
Saturday, and Monday respective- 
ly. Coach Coombs plans to go along 
with the same starting line up he 
u.sed against Springfield in the 
opener. That will mean that Walk- 
ei', McAlaine, and either Stegeman 
01' Freeman, depending on whether 
llie opposing pitcher is right or left 
handed, will patrol the outfield. 
Ihe infield will liave Hedeman on 
first base, Adams and Haeffner at 
second short, and captain Kagan 
on third. Catching chores will be 
handled by Tom Christopher. 


The Williams Track team meets 
Middlebury College Saturday at 
Middlebury. This is the first dual 
meet of the year for both teams. 
Middlebury is led by Captain Pete 

Senior Chip Ide will lead a strong 
Williams team in the sprints. Ide, 
wlio ran a 21.9 220 al Boston last 
week, will shoot for wins in the

Junior Brian Lorenz heads the 
improved weightmen. Lorenz and 
sophomore Pete Almy have been 
steadily improving in the hammer 

The return of juniors Bob Diin-

ams, winning the mile in 4:41. He 
then went on to take second in the 
880 and later ran in the relay. Dave 
Kieffer took the 440 in 52.1, with 
John Kroh coming in second. 
Frank Ward also starred, winning 
the high hurdles and splitting with 
Jim 'Van Hoven for first in the 
high jump at a height of 5'6". 

In other field events Bill Huf- 
nagel. Bill Fox, and Jim Dufty took 
first in the shot, discus, and pole 
vault respectively. 


On the strength of four fourth 
period goals the freshmen lacrosse 
team defeated Mt. Hermon 9-7 in 
their opening game. 

The first half was Mt. Hermon's 
as the Ephs were obviously hin- 
dered by first game jitters. A bright 
spot for Williams was the scoring 
of Tom Bachman who scored three 
in the second quarter. 

Strong Comeback 

Inspired by goalie Tom Hum- 
phreys who made some terrific 
saves the Ephmen were three men 
down when they started their 

Witli seven minutes remaining 
in the game Bachman scored the 
tying goal. Skip Rutherford scored 
his third goal to put the Ephs in 
the lead and Bachman followed 
with two more to insure victory 
for Williams. 

Coach Muir Instructs 
Waterfront Directors 

Swimming coach Bob Muir is 
now conducting a Red course 
for senior swimmers and instruc- 
tors. The course is designed to p:'e- 
pare boys for jobs as waterfront 
directors, lifeguards, or pool man- 
agers. Instruction in advanced 
swimming, artificial respiration, 
and teaching of beginners is in- 

Last year 32 instructors and 19 
seniors completed the course. At 
present there are only 33 enrolled 
and Muir emphasized that there is 
room for more. Classes are held 
from 4:00 to 5:30 Tuesdays and 
Thursdays and those interested 
should sign up by the end of this 

If he did, the odds are he'll 
be hotfooting it right back 
for America's most popular 
cigarette. Nothing else gives 
you the rich tobacco flavor 
and easygoing mildness of 
Camel's costly blend. It 
stands to reason : the best 
tobacco makes the best

Prof. Nelson Bushnell Retires; 
Teacher, Scholar^ Outdoorsman 

Nelson S. Bushnell is, in a 
way, an old-fashioned man. Hi 
believes in enjoying life. This be- 
lief affects both his vi^y of life 
and his view of educationr* 

A picture of Richard Wagner 
hangs in his office. "Wagner isn't 
the thing with intellectuals today. ' 
he comments, "not that it realls 
matters. I enjoy his music." 

"I love to dig in the dirt, see 
things grow." So Professor Bush- 
nell lives on a farm in South Wil- 
liamstown and has a "camp" in 

And the retiring J. H. Roberts 
Professor of English also developed 
and taught for several years Wil- 
liams' one course in the novel. For 
the past three years he has been 
studying the derivation and back- 
ground of the English novel of 
manners, a study which will con- 
tinue after his retirement. 
Why retirement? 

"I have seen people who didn't 
retire until they had to; seen them 
wandering about like lost souls, not 
knowing what to do next." Three 
years ago. Professor Bushnell took 
a leave to see "if the life of re- 
search and writing still agreed 
with me, since I will probably be 
working on the problem of the nov- 
el of manners for the rest of my 
conscious days." He and his wife 
plan to divide their time between 
William.stown, Canada and the 
West Indies. Teaching— on a part 
time basis — still interests him. "I 
have been with it for thirty years 
and I can still get excited in class." 
About teaching in general 

Nelson Bushnell has been at Wil- 
liams for nearly thirty years, gra- 
duating in 1920 and returning more 
or permanently in 1931. He 
states simply, "I am a better tea- 
cher of C students then of A stu- 
dents." Ideally, education ought to 
acquaint the student to wider ex- 
perience I "lead him to the books") 
because "life is fun and while we

Life is meant to be enjoyed.

many of them can be lived vicar- 
iously through literature and ima- 

And Williams in particular 

The tanned young man of sixty 
shifted in his chair. "I love it. It 
is a teacher's school and the ad- 
ministration makes every effort to 
keep the work interesting, to allow 
a man to concentrate on teaching. 
But there ought to be some chan- 
ges made — change is a good thing 

in itself. It allows us to throw a- 
way the junk and keep the good 
things." And the president of the 
Phi Beta Kappa alumni chapter 
says about today's students, "They 
are more imaginative and recep- 
tive than they used to be; now I 
can throw out some extreme ideas 
without hoots of derision." 
Committment to religion 

A sketch, of a man no matter 
how small the thumbnail, is hard- 
ly complete without mention of 
religious committment, according 
to Bushnell. His is an attempt to 
find some common ground between 
the Christian and Hindu way of 
life. Serving in India with the 
Air Force, he found much that was 
attractive about the land and its 
people, so much so that he has 
returned twice since. "A lot of ideas 
seem cockeyed until you live with 
them; some of the religious ideas 
held by modern Hindus have much 
value and revale
