Two Innovations Mark 
Sixth Career Weekend 

Some sixty alumni have aj^reed to |)artici|)ate in Williams' 
sixth annual Career Weekend, this Thursday through Sunday. With 
two innovations, the Thursday evening panel on military service

year is the most varied and com- 
prehensive in the history of Car- 
eer Weekend.

Copeland, "an attempt to broad- 
en the scope of the program."

slightly altered this year. The 
"mock" interview sessions have 
been retained, but examples of 
three levels of interview will be

Two Changes In 
Career Weekend 

Two innovations, last night's 
military opportunities panel and 
Sunday's discussion of "Problems 
and Possibilities of a Career with 
Integrity", mark the sixth annual 
edition of Career Weekend. 

The Career Weekend commit- 
tee, headed by Sandy Smith '60, 
has also expanded tonight's in- 
terview program to include ex- 
amples of three types of job in- 
erviews: the initial campus in-

interview, and the home office 
interview in depth. 

Placement Director Manton 
Copeland, Jr. '39, who, with alum- 
ni chairman Henry Dawes '28 has 
secured the alumni panelists, in- 
dicated high hopes for bettering 
last year's record student atten- 
dance of 1239: "We have an out- 
standing group of panelists this 
year, the largest number ever, 
and, with our expanded program, 
we are hoping for a good student 

The emphasis of the weekend is 
not on recruiting but on present- 
ing objective views of opportuni- 
ties in various fields. Each panel 
is staffed by three or more men of 
various experience levels in each 
of the businesses taken up in the 

Tonight's program will start at 
7;45 in the Rathskeller. Subjects

ethics which will replace the nor-

The most popular panel last 
year was education, followed by 
advertising. Other panels sched- 
uled this year include these as 
well as law, medicine, sales, and 
foreign business opportunities. 

Violin-Harpsichord Duo Opens New 
Williams Musical Season Tonisht 

An outstanding violin-harpsi- 
chord concert, featuring Robert 
Brink and Daniel Pinkham, is the 
Thompson Concert Committee's 
first offering for 1960. The con- 
cert will start tonight at 8:30 in 
Jesup Hall. 

The concert will include works 
by Bach, Handel, Hovhaness, and 
Pinkham. It is free and open to 
the public. 

Brink, the violinist, and Pink- 
ham are each soloists in their own 
right. A recent concert of theirs 
was thus described by the Boston 
"Herald"; "It is impossible to des- 
cribe how beautiful this combina- 
tion is, or how completely 'right' 
it is. That Is to say, there is no 
instrument that brings out the 

beauty of strings as the harpsi- 
chord does; the piano seems al- 
most barabrous compared with it. 
They make a sound at once so 
brilliant but so balanced, so effec- 
tive but so subtle, so at oneness 
with each other, but so individual, 
that it is a unique musical experi- 

Both men are young, under 30. 
Brink has played with Arthur 
Fiedler and the Boston "Pops" 
orchestra, and he has performed 
on the Trans-Canada Network. 


Pinkham has played with the 
Boston Symphony Orchestra un- 
der Charles Munch, Igor Marke- 
vltch, and Thor Johnson. He has 
made numerous harpsichord re- 
cordings. ■ ■

Johnson Speaks 
On World Peace 

"We live in the most revolu- 
tionary age man has ever known," 
said Joseph E. Johnson, Presi- 
dent of the Carnegie Endowment 
for International Peace, in a talk 
entitled "Peace in our Time?" 

He began his speech by point- 
ing out that his organization to 
hasten the abolition of interna- 
tional war is now in its 50th year. 
"Peace is in the air today," he 
said. "The avoidance of major 
hostility between powers depends 
on the United States. 


"To attain peace: we must have 
adequate military capacity both 
to deter nuclear war and to wage 
a limited one ; we must strengthen 
our alliances; we must realize a 
balance of terror is better than an 
imbalance of terror; we need un- 
remitting attempts to negotiate 
lessening of world tensions; and 
we want more vigorous and costly 
attacks on the problems of under- 
privileged nations." He noted that 
the way the United States does 
things is as important as what 
it does. 

The lecture, the first presented 
by the 1946 Memorial Fund in 
memory of fourteen members of 
that class who gave tiieir lives 
for their country, was opened by 
Dickson Debevoise, class presi- 
dent. Williams President James P. 
Baxter, III, introduced the speak- 
er, who taught at Williams before 
and after World War II.

ending June 30, 1963, will become 
assistant director of the Center of 
Development Economics in July. 
This past semester he has been a 
part-time instructor at M. I. T. 
Tauber replaces assistant profes- 
sor Dwight Simpson for the sem- 
ester, while Pope will lecture for 
professor Kermit Gordon. 

New appointments beginning in 
July are: Thomas P. McGill, as- 
sistant professor of psychology, 
and Allen C. West, assistant pro- 
fessor of chemistry, both for three 
years. Given one-year appoint- 
ments were Emil R. Rado, visit- 
ing assistant professor of econom- 
ics; Milton Cantor, lecturer in 
American history and literature; 
Nicholas Persen, Instructor in 

Harlan P. Hanson of the Ger- 
man department was today ap- 
pointed Dean of Freshmen for the 
school year 1960-61. He will re- 
p'ace Dean William G. Cole who 
leaves after the second semester 
to become president of Lake For- 
est College. 

Hanson graduated from Har- 
vard in 1948, majoring in German 
and lettering in crew. After a 
year abroad he returned there to 
become assistant dean for sopho- 
mores, a senior tutor, and later 
director of the Advanced Place- 
ment Program. Having come to 
Williams in 1958, he was promoted 
at the last trustees' meeting from 
assistant professor of German to 
associate professor with tenure. 

Hanson has been faculty advi- 
ser for prospective teachers and 
has more recently accepted the 
job of coordinating faculty grad- 
uate school advisers. In addition 
he is adviser for the DKE house. 
He feels "the basic aim of every 
student should be learning to 
think for himself, and this does 
not apply only intellectually." 

Known about town for his "for- 
eign intrigue" look, featuring dark 
glasses, bow tie, and vest, "Harpo" 
Hanson sometimes reverts to his 
letter sweater ("H" stands for 
Harvard, not Harpo.) He wears 
the vest to warn admissions de- 
partment secretaries that he is 
neither a prospective freshman 
nor an undergraduate. 

As dean Hanson will be charged 
with orienting and advising fresh- 
men, he will continue to teach 
German, but only one class each 
semester in addition to advising 
senior honors theses. Comment- 
ing on his appointment, Hanson 
mused, "I feel honored," and ad- 
ded, "It will be a challenge." 

Trustees Elevate 
Drs. Park, Clark 

The Williams Board of Trustees 
has named Paul G. Clark and Da- 
vid A. Park full professors in ec- 
onomics and physics, respectively. 

Promoted to associate professor 
were Russell H. Bastert in history, 
Robert N. Megaw and Don F. Gif- 
ford in English, John W. Chand- 
ler in religion, Robert M. Kozel- 
ka in mathematics, and Harlan P. 
Hanson in German. Associate pro- 
fessor of mathematics Guilford L. 
Spencer II was granted tenure 

Newly-promoted assistant pro- 
fessors are Robert T. Miki in ec- 
onomics, Doris de Keyserlingk In 
Russian, and Grover E. Marshall 
in Romanic languages. 

Clark received his A. B. from 
the University of Colorado in 1943, 
and took his Ph. D. at HaiTard in 
1950. He has been at Williams 
since 1949. 

Park has taught at Williams 
from 1941-44 and from 1951 to the 
present. He received his A. B. from 
Harvard and his Ph. D. from 
Michigan. A former member of the 
Pi-inceton Institute for Advanced 
Study, he was the Fulbright lec- 
turer in physics at the University 
of Ceylon in 1956.

Whai happened last year, anyway? 

Tht'ie were few big student i.ssue.s tluriun tiu' 
year past. Why':' Some Ijioui^lit out llie old 
kiek jilate ol a))iith\-, hut t\cn that eh;u'ij;e 
didn't Ijriiit; out tlie letter writers in lull liir)- as 
it used to, l-'ost-war Wilhains wiis without the 
adrenalin in the aeach'iiiie \ciiis pro\ itled by 
\'etcrans of two wars, and in il.s noruialey, Wil- 
liams students were aetuall)' hittiinj; the hooks, 
as their pieturesque jai ij;oii would lui\'e it. 

Honors and Dean's List students tilled the li- 
brary, and if some teachers eharifed that the 
studious were unimaniiuitve, the\' lound more 
students lori'pared to talk in class. .More striking, 
howe\er, was the ineieased atteiidaiiee at vari- 
ous extra-curricular events luuin^ some rela- 
tionship to tlie lile ol the mind. 

Fraternities too 

were showing more interest in hooks than ]iianks. 
Some mijfht sa\' with a wry old kuiL!;h tluit this 
was merel\- ;i jihase. For some. |)artieipation in 
house s\'mposiiiins was in the sj^irit ol curiosity; 
thev couldn t remeinher when culture had been 
()uite so a\ailable. But somc> found an interest- 
in<4 (juestion leading; to a moment's reflection 
when notetl laeult\' meniheis s])oke iit informal 
after-dinner col fee sessions, and this is ])r()i^ress. 
Through all this, howe\i'r. inucli of Williams 
was the old up]5er-middle class social institu- 
tion, not tlie vital intellectual coinmunitv its 
most optimistic critics, like the KECOIID, were 
fond of describing at lengtli. 

Graduation without involvement 

in the ideas ;ind princijiles set forth in the cur- 
liculum continui'd to be possibk' lor a large 
miuorit\- of students who were either clever, 
undisei|i!ined or ol)Scr\ant. \\'illia]ns remained 
one of the hardest colleges to flunk out of in 
the East, 

Disci|5liiK' problems were rather fewer this year. 
Plagiarism and cheating were found among both 
freslimen and u|5pcrclassmen. which led some 
older facult\' members to mourn the loss of mor- 
ality in the new generation. In particular, the 
irrevocable expulsion of a junior for cheating in 
a minor test started the undergraihuite Honor 
System (Committee thinking about a iilan to dis- 
embowe] the Honor Code making the |ienalty, 
as they said, cominensunite with the crime. Pres- 
idi'ut |ames P. 15ii\ter '3rd jiriwitelv denounced 
till' pkm so strongly that the sponsors withdrew 
to reconsider. 

The Williams Program 

pushed more than half w;u' toward tlie .$4 mil- 
lion goal. The xigoious leadershi]i of J-'lnnuev 
Ba.xter, wlio showed none of his 67 years, 
brought the needs and interests of the College 
to every regional ahmiiii organization in tbe 
country. Travelling many thousands of miles, 
Pa.xter, bis assistant Bill Dickerson, Treasurer 
Charlie Foehl and other members of the admin- 
istration worked closely with 4.j regional direc- 
tors of the biggest fund drive. Chairman Hugh 
linllock tra\i'led extensively too, and with Dick- 
erson, compiled bi-weekly reports. 

In wluit Baxter called "my last big job for Wil- 
liams," the Irnstees exjiect to construct a sound 
financial base for the next ten years, Togetber 
witli what max- logicidlv he expected from be- 
(|uests and foundation grants during the next 
ten years, the I'rogram money xvill keep Williams 
at tbe subsistence level of endowment income 
for the future anyway. Contrary to usual rumors, 
Williams is not a wealthy school, ,\s Baxter says, 
"(Charlie Cole (of Amherst) has a dolkir and a 
half to spend for e\ery dollar xve'xc got." With 
rising costs, the silualion xvill remain about the 
same even after the current S4 million goal is 

Attracting good teachers, 

and giving them good salaries with academic 
freedom lias been the main goal of the admin- 
istration for years. As it has developed since the 
war, industry and big, rich universities liave 

been grabbing tiilentetl miiiils from small col- 
legt'.s without scruple. To combat this treiiil. 
Williiuiis has become known for its fringe bene- 
fits. For iiis.aiiee. faculty housing is pro\idetl at 
nominal rental by the college. The college also 
offers outstanding sites on whicb to build bouses, 
and lias been a pioni'er in the tuition exchange 
program with uKiuv other uiii\ersities lor laeult\- 
children. One of the few institutions ol biglu'r 
learning whicb iloes not pressure its laculty into 
producing books and articles regularly, inan\- 
teachers :ue attracted by Williams because ol the 
leisurelx' life. Williainstoxvii is a good iilace to 
raise ebildreii too. 

Last year, new home sites were made available 
on the choice old Cluett proix-rty recentK' be- 
i|ueathed to tbe college. .\ rather eomiilcx cbaiigi' 
in the iiension plans, eased the burden of iiiiv- 
ineut towiird the college itself. In a cou]i xviiich 
will probably proxe a boon to the econoniics 
and political science departments, the (Center 
lor l)ex'clo])nient Fconomies xvas established at 
Chiett House with iiionex' from Ford. 

The Cluett Estate 

will annually gi\e 20 men from underde\eloped 
eountrit's some of the tools tlu'X' will need to ae- 
eompiish their objectixes of de\i'lopment 
through economics. If )5roperly handled, it will 
iilso bring to the caniiius a \ital new group xvith 
whom students can excbaiige ideas. It created 
a big controxers)- in a xerv croxvded s\in|")osium 
at the Saint House a month ago. Faculty niem- 
hers rose with cl()(|uent or xindictixe attacks or 
defenses, but the debate fiiiallx' disintegrated in- 
to iugunients oxer the incthoils used by l-'rofes- 
sor Gaudino xvho introduced the subject. This 
lasted only txvo days. Students heard lar more 
from tbe faculty on the subject of total oiipoi- 
tiiuitx- for fraternity membership. 

Getting into a house 

has long meant the difference between social life 
and death on the campus, and cvervbody Ikis 
flung millions of xvords into the churn on bow it 
should be done. Three years ago reformers got 
their lirst nip of success when eyeryone who 
xsaiited one got a bid to join a bouse. Recent less 
active student leadership, made it apparent tluit 
tbe "eompletelv xoluntary" total opportunity sys- 
tem would not work consistently. The majority 
of undergraduates this year xoted to make a rule 
that nobody xvould get a bid until everyone did. 

.Alter txvo unsuccessful attempts and a great deal 
of canipaiguing by the l^ECOHD and leaders 
such as Matt Nimetz, Al .Martin and l^on Stegall. 
the Social Council agreed to undertake the great 
responsibility of finding a place for even the last 
sexcn or eight on the list. 

A pretty good year, 

all things considered. The total opportunity re- 
solution, though important, was considered as 
inexitable by observers of Williams trends in- 
cluding opponents of the plan. The Cluett House 
project was definite progress. Higher academic 
standards of the college and the admissions peo- 
|ile brought more students to Phi Beta Kapjia 
and to |)oetry readings, plays, lectures and con- 
certs. If the college xvas getting too marks-con- 
scious, there were probably also more people 
xvho found time to read a fexv good books. 

The issue of time in a fixe-conrsc system xvill 
prohablv he important in the year to come. Much 
opinion favors sxxitching to four courses each 
semester including that of the President. With 
txxo trustees retiring this year, the Chapel issue 
xvill flare anexv especially after abolitionist moves 
at Princeton and Weslcyan. Discrimination in 
fraternities xxill undergo stiff reexamination, as 
xvill the policy xvliich has given some recent for- 
eign students free means to circumvent immi- 
gration (piotas.

New, Old Editors 
Address Staffers 

Ted Castle, '60, and John May- 
her, '61, were the principle speak- 
ers at a meeting of the Williams 
Record staff Thursday in the 
Rathskeller. The meeting was to 
launch the new RECORD board, 
which takes over after this issue. 

Castle, retiring editor, stressed 
the accomplishments of the record 
board during the past semester. He 
listed four major improvements. 
First was the revamping of the 
compet system to raise the cali- 
ber of story writing. Second was 
the improvement of circulation. 
Through the fraternity plan cir- 
culation has jumped from 200 to 
about 575. Also, the board has tri- 
ed to make the Record more at- 
tractive through different types of 
make-up. Last, the arrangement 
of editors has been changed to 
put more men at the top. Castle 

Mayher, the new editor, stated 
the aims of the new staff. An- 
other compet program will be run, 
he said, as newcomers, especially 
on the business staff, are badly 
needed. Other areas in which he 
hoped the new board would make 
improvements are finances, co- 
operation between the editorial 
and business boards, and the dis- 
tribution of mailed papers. 

"I don't see why we can't put 
out a better paper than the old 
staff because we can correct all 
their mistakes and adopt all their 
good ideas." Mayher concluded. 

Varsity Loses In 
2 Holiday Games 

Varsity basketball came out on 
the short end twice, losing to New 
York Athletic Club 87-72 on Mon- 
day, and succumbing to powerful 
Hofstra 82-62. Sophomore sharp- 
shooter Bob Mahland continued 
his scoring ways, netting 22 a- 
gainst Hofstra and 16 at NYAC. 

There was a bright side to both 
defeats. Against NYAC in a post- 
exam conditioner counting only .ts 
an exhibition game, the Ephs 
tossed in 28 out of 32 foul shots. 
Down 52-35 at halftime, Williams 
came on to outscore their veter- 
an, predominately professional op- 
ponents in the second half. Bob 
Montgomery threw in 10 field 
goals and 6 free throws for 26 

Against Hofstra, Williams again 
had the scoring edge in the sec- 
ond half, thanks to the unstop- 
pable shooting of Bob Mahland. 
However, with 24 first half points, 
to Hofstra's 48, the Ephs were 
never In the ball game. 

Encouraging was tire scoring 
performance of center and lead- 
ing rebounder Lou Guzetti, who 
tallied 15 to 9 points in the two

AlC Trips Ephs 
In Overtime, 3-2 

Tlie varsity icers suffered their 
eighth setback Thursday night 
in a heartbreaking 3-2 overtime 
loss to American International. 
The ever-improving McCormick- 
men came from behind twice on 
heads up goals by junior marks- 
man Laurie Hawkins, only to see 
the game slip from their grasp in 
overtime on a freak 30 footer by 
Ronnie Barton. 


AIC took a first period lead 
with 31 seconds remaining on a 
15 footer by Joe Kozub when Wil- 
liams failed to clear. As was the 
case throughout the game, the 
Ephs were thwarted time and 
lime again by the lightning fast 
goal tending of Otto Welker. A 
number of times he stabbed close 
in drives with his glove to hold 
the Purple attack. 

In the second period, Hawkins 
found the range at 16:35, knock- 
ing in the rebound of Mark Com- 
stock's slapper. In the third frame, 
after Wills put AIC ahead at 6:00, 
Hawkins retaliated from close 
range after a scramble, to set the 
stage for Barton's dramatic win-

Stocking Recreates ^"^Woolf at Besf^ 

The armual series of Faculty 
Lectures was successfully and en- 
tertainingly launched on Thurs- 
day by Professor Fred H. Stock- 
ing, who spoke to a full house on 
the subject of "Virginia Woolf at 
Her Best." As the subject of the 
first of eight weekly lectures to 
be given at 4:30 P. M., Thursday, 
in Rm. Ill Biology, "Virginia" was 
disclosed to have been a charac- 
ter of not only unusual personali- 
ty, but also of amazing ability and 

As a preface to his remarks con- 
cerning the life and works of Miss 
Woolf, Stocking expressed the op- 
inion that of her many works, 
which included twenty-two short 
stories, nine novels, and two bio- 
graphies, the collections entitled 
Common Reader One and Two, 
part of Miss Woolf's some four- 
hundred essays, constitute her best 

With a delivery and sense of 
liumor characteristic of the entire 

lecture. Stocking emphasized that 
Miss Woolf's early environment 
had a drastic influence on her per- 
sonality and, consequently, her 
prose style. Her mother's sense 
of humor and disdain for "gener- 
al rules'" and her father's great 
energy, rebellious nature and in- 
tellectualism and the area of Lon- 
don in which she resided Blooms- 
bury, all affected her way of 

How then did her environment 
and personality affect her literary 
style? She respected not rigidity 
and conformity, but eccentricity. 
She tried to invent new forms and, 
disdainful of the rigid Edward- 
ian style, wrote her essays in very 
flexible forms. And in her works, 
she championed eccentrics because 
she despised those who critised 
them for not being like other peo- 
ple "other people" to her being an 
odius phrase. 

Having no systematic belief. 

Virginia Woolf was able to look 
as honestly as possible through 
her own eyes, and she felt not 
a sympathy toward a character 
but an actual identity with the 
character. Her pursuit was three- 
fold; to project the qualities of the 
character: to present the biases of 
the author; and, finally, and most 
importantly, to create a work of 

And the achievement of this 
pursuit is precisely what made 
Virginia Woolf what she was — -a 
master of prose expression. The 
"poetic quality" of her writing 
and her ability to concentrate 
"whole paragraphs onto one met- 
aphor" showed her to be a true 
pro, who "could do anything with 
a sentence," and who produced not 
only literature, but fine art as 
well. And "it is as art," stated 
Stocking in reference to her es- 
says, "that I recommend them."

Appoint Plimpton 
Amherst Prexy 

Dr. Calvin H. Plimpton, assist- 
ant dean of the College of Physi- 
cians and Surgeons at Columbia 
University, has been chosen to 
succeed Charles W. Cole as presi- 
dent of Amherst College on July 

Plimpton, 42, attended prepara- 
tory school at Exeter, and Am- 
herst, where he received his B. A. 
in the class of '39. He went on to 
Harvard medical school from 
which he received his M. D. in 
1943. After interning for a year 
at the Presbyterian Hospital in 
New York City, Plimpton served 
as a medical officer in the Europe- 
an theater from 1944 to 1946. 

Following the war the doctor 
returned to Harvard and received 
his M. A. in biochemistry in 1947. 
Then he went back to Presby- 
terian as assistant resident In 

Two years later he became 
chief resident and joined the Col- 
umbia faculty. That university a- 
warded him the degree of Doctor 
of Medical Science in 1951. 

For two years before last Aug- 
ust Plimpton was Professor of 
Medicine, chairman of the de- 
partment and a.ssociate dean of 
the medical faculty at American 
University in Beirut, Lebanon. 
Chief of Staff of the American 
University Hospital, Plimpton ex- 
tended medical aid to American 
marines and Lebanese during the 
1958 crisis. 

John J. McCloy. present chair- 
man of the Amherst trustees, 
made the official announcement 
that the physician would be Am- 
herst's 13th president. He said:

ure in the medical profession rep-

C. C. Okays Proposal 
On Current Affairs 

The possible re-establishment 
of a Williams Current Affairs 
Weekend constituted the focus of 
attention at Tuesday evening's CC 

Mike Dlvely and Jerry Campaig- 
ne -submitted a report on the Cur- 
rent Affairs weekend tentatively 
scheduled for April 22 and 23. 
The proposed weekend will have 
as its theme Liberalism vs. Con- 
servatism, and will feature a lec- 
ture-discussion program and a 
panel discussion Friday evening. 
Arthur Schlesinger of Harvard 
will present the Liberal point of 
view and William Buckley, edi- 
tor of the National Review and 
author of "God and Man at Yale," 
will counter from the Conservative 
position. Saturday afternoon, a 
panel composed of two Democrats, 
two Republicans and a moderator 
will consider the 1960 presidential 

The College Council on Finance 
recommended that the CC absorb 
$750 of the estimated $1,750 ex- 
penses for the weekend provided 
that the Meade Fund grant the 
remaining $1000 and that both Mr. 
Schlesinger and Mr. Buckley ac- 
cept the invitation to speak. The 
Council accepted this recom- 
mendation unanimously. 

Brookings Grant Goes To Moor For 
Study Oi Nations Health Expenses 


Medical costs researclier 


Assistant Professor Roy Moor 
of the Economics department has 
been awarded a grant from the 
Brookings Institute for research 
on health in the United States. 

This award makes Williams 
the only college in the country 
that has received four Brookings' 
grants. Dr. John Power received 
the first grant to study the prob- 
lems of economic and population 
growth. Dr. William Gates stud- 
led the Haitian economy under a 
similar grant. Dr. John Sheahan 
Is currently in France studying In- 
dustrial problems. As is indicated 
by these topics, the Brookings 
Institute is an organization which 
encourages research in the social 
sciences, and especially in econo- 
mics. Located In Washington, it is 
financed by individual and corp- 
oration donations. 

Dr. Moor inten^.s to find out 
the aggregate cost of medical care 
in the United States. The second 
step of the pro.lect is to estimate 

how much additional expense 
would be incurred by alternative 
measures, such as increased psy- 
chiatric care. Moor hopes to ex- 
tend his study to the ways by 
which such an increase in medi- 
cal facilities could be financed. 
The United Nations' World Health 
Organization is engaged in simi- 
lar research on a world-wide scale. 
Although there is quite a bit of 
interest in the medical field be- 
cause of proposed expansions in 
the Social Scurity Act, little re- 
search has been done on the ec- 
onomic side of this problem. Tlie 
Institute hopes that Moor's report, 
when published, will help Con- 
gressmen to be better able to deal 
with medical-economic problems. 
While some legislators are very 
well informed in the economic a- 
rea, others are either ignorant in 
this field, or are under pressure 
from their home area. 

Interviewer Peter Kolonia i right) amuses senior Bob Julius 

Career Panels Stress 
^Decide Job Objective' 

"Getting a job is not the prob- 
lem — it's getting the right job 
that takes time and care." Peter 
V. Kolonia, a non-Williams grad- 
uate, opened the Friday night job 
interview of the Sixth Annual 
Career Weekend. 

The panel was introduced by 
Henry Dawes '28, chairman of the 
Graduate Committee of the week- 
end, and Samuel A. Matthews, 
chairman pro tempore of the fac- 
ulty. Said Matthews, "This week- 
end is not really an interruption to 
the intellectual life of the campus, 
but a supplement." 

Getting a job, said Kolonia, is 
a problem of finding the right ob- 
jectives and of selling yourself. 
"A basic willingness to 
one-self honestly" is needed. 

Superficiality is to be avoided 
in interviews, continued Kolonia. 
He cited the type of student who 
decides upon a certain profession 
by default. "Neither fish nor fowl." 
he quipped, "this lad feels quali- 
fied tor all of them. This guy is 
the one real lost ball in the high 
weeds. Fellas, he is the liberal 
arts man." 

Objectives, Kolonia said posi- 
tively, must be realistic. "Keep 
them consistent with the things 
you like to do." 

"Selling yourself" Kolonia de- 
fined as "presenting your talents 
in a manner which reflects your- 
self in the best light." He admon- 
ished "If you're not interested 
enough in that job or company to 
be convincing in your interest, 
how can the interviewer be en- 
thusiastic about you?" 

"Study companies," he conclud- 
ed, "in terms of the relationship of 
their values to your objectives 
and you will not be a victim of 

Kolonia's talk was followed by 
three mock interviews with Wil- 
liams seniors; the initial campus

blend of the two instruments, a 
true duet rather than a soloist 
and accompanist." 

The program for the concert 
included two Bach sonatas, In E 
minor and No. 3 in B minor, and 
works by Marini, Handel and Hov- 
haness. Also included was a work 

by Pinkham, Cantilena and Cap- 
riccio. William Little of the Ger- 
man Department, who himself 
plays harpsichord, described it as 
being a "very fine work". He also 
noted that Pinkham has develop- 
ed a very personal and particular 
style, somewhat traditional, but 
with a distinct modern flavor. His 
registration variations were very 
artistically done. He was very 
sensitive to the hall." 


The only solo performance on 
the program was Handel's Con- 
certo in F major, which, like all 
the Handel concerti played on 
the harpsichord, was originally 
scored for organ. Upon being call- 
ed back to the stage for an encore, 
Pinkham played four German 
Dances by Haydn.

Sproat To Lecture On 
Patrician Reformers 

A group of patrician reformers, 
are the "Sadly Honest-Looking 
Gentlemen" about whom John 
Sproat of the history department 
will lecture Thursday afternoon 
in the Biology Lab. 

Thosp men were post-Civil War 
liberals who fought against the 
rise of big business, the labor 
movement, and, dirty politics. 
Their fault, was their attempt at 
playing politics while refusing to 
be true politicians. Their meagre 
accomplishments serve to empha- 
size the futility of their snobbish, 
idealistic approach to politics. 

Moral Theories 
Stir Discussion 

Career Week-End closed on a 
somewhat controversial note Sun- 
day with a discussion entitled, 
"Problems and Possibilities of a 
Career With Integrity." Labelled 
"an experiment" by college chap- 
lain Lawrence DeBoer, panel mod- 
erator, the program took the place 
of the regular Sunday chapel ser- 
vice. It was well attended. 

One of the speakers scheduled 
to appear, Robert L. Pegley, Man- 
a'^ei- of Public Issues Analysis, 
General Electric Company, was 
unable to attend. Hie speech was 
read by William Herman, another 
representative of the company. Dr. 
Prentiss L. Pemberton, the Ai'- 
thur Gosnell Professor of Social 
Ethics of Colgate Rochester Div- 
inity School, appeared as schedul- 

Pemberton's and Fegley's sp)e- 
eches were presented after DeBoer 
set the stage with his opening 
comments. He claimed that our 
values and morals of the future 
I "what we are") will largely be 
determined by our vocational 
choices ("what we do"). 

Pembertoir, who received his 
doctorate in religion at Har-vard 
University and has had many 
years of religious experience, 
built on the basic framework pro- 
vided by DeBoer. He presented 
the basic problem of integrity as 
a dichotomy between the "glib 
Biblical interpretations'' of man's 
right to pursue a career and the 
pre.ssures of progressing in a 
technological age. 

He attempted to resolve this 
difference by claiming that to- 
day's workers should be re-orient- 
ed so that the purpose would tran- 
scend the mere end of "produc- 
tion for the sake of production." 
The work accomplished should 
lake significance in the part of a 
greater historical plan. He stated, 
"Man is defined as a servant of 
God. His work will only take a 
profound significance if it can 
contribute to the ethical demands 
and spiritual obligations of the 

Fegley's paper, read quite ef- 
fectively by Herman, agreed with 
Pemberton in the beginning,

Surgeon To Gii;e 
Aesculapian Talk 

Dr. Charles Eckert, head of the 
Department of Surgery at Albany 
Medical College, will speak on 
"Research in Surgery" at a meet- 
ing of the Aesculapian Society to- 
morrow night. 

The lecture, open to the public 
at 8; 00 p. m. in the Thompson 
Biology Laboratory, is part of a 
program to broaden the scope of 
the present pre-medical society to 
encompass all the sciences. 

President Dave Shapiro stated, 
"We hope to bring the interests 
of biology and chemistry students 
together in tomorrow's lecture." 
Shapiro sees the Aesculapians as 
becoming a general science club in 
the future. 

The Aesculapian Society is do- 
ing much In the interest of pre- 
medical students. It has arranged 
for a shelf in the biology library 
containing catalogues, pamphlets, 
and publications of various medi- 
cal colleges. 

D. L F. Head Presents 
Functioning Problems 

Amidst the annoying outbursts 
from Griffin Hall's infamous heat 
registers. Hart Perry, head of the 
nation's newly established De- 
velopment Loan Fund Agency, 
Washington, D. C, outlined the 
brief history of this agency, and 
the problems arising in its first 
few years of functioning in Mon- 
day night's lecture, before a small 
attentive audience, largely com- 
prised of Economics majors and 
members of the Economics De- 
partment. Perry tried to define 
D. L. F.'s essence by contrasting 
its purposes with those of other 
government affiliated loan agen- 

Separated from the other Con- 
gressional agencies, as it is the 
only agency granted a set sum 
from Congress to use in whatever 
way it wishes, the D. L. F. oper- 
ates independently on a "revol- 
ving fund" basis. Its basic purpose 
is to finance and foster programs 
which would help underdeveloped 
foreign countries to strengthen 
their economy. 

Perry posed the agency's basic 
problems of "paucity of good pro- 
grams, submitted by both the 
countries and the private enter- 
prisers of these countries," what 
to do with the "rapidly increas- 
ing local currency" used in the 
payment of the debt, and "lack 
of good long term programs which 
are discouraged by the discontin- 
uous year to year grants by Con-

In the beginning . . . 

The 1960 RECORD editorial board w ill attomiit 
to direct its policies to\\;ircl a rc.s|)on.sihK' undor- 
standing of liberal education in tlu- Williams 
context. We will not be enisatliMS. but t|ue.stion- 
ers; not t'onnulators, but interpreters. 
Our predecessors have established an almost un- 
IKCcedented le\el of hish (lualitv. We shall be 
able to build on their foundation, and with the 
injection of our own ijolieies dexeloj) the I^EC-

A foreign language 

By all indications Career Weekend was a suc- 
cess. In resijonse to ti;enerally well-ori^anized 
and well-run j^anels the audiences of students, 
dates and free panel members were entiuisiastic. 
The discussions fulfilled .\lumni Chairman 
Dawes' e.xi^ressed hope that "after this weekend 
you will have some facts." 

But the discussions also illustrated that many 
of us liberal arts students are not used to thhik- 
iiig in terms of careers-neither of objectises 
nor of "sellins;; ourselves." Tiie lan<j;uaife of busi- 
ness seemed forei<4n. 

The businessman thinks of objectives in a lim- 
ited sense, within business. The liberally edu- 
cated man thinks of business with its whole set 
of limited ^oals as one objecti\e amonj; many. 
As a ))art of the Career Weekend jiroffram the 
committee com|Mled a list of courses relevant 
to various careers. Considered as a set of pre- 
requisites for jobs die list was contrary to the 
Williams conception of the liberal education, a 
traininij; which aims not so much for |3reparation 
for a specific career as for trainiiii; in thinking. 
As an aid to retros]5ective seniors attemjotiuff 
to discover where their interests lie, the list of 
courses has value, [ournalist Frederick Gilbert 
dis])layed the liberal |3ers|oecti\e when he re- 
jiliecl to the Committee's re(|uest for relevant 
courses; "It makes no difference in the field of 
journalism what you study at college as long as 
you disciiiline your mind to facing new prob- 
lems and handling them within the realm that 
your mind dictates. Would that the college had 
a course to )5romote positive Curiosity and En- 

One of the most meaningful and i^opular panels 
was that on education. The s]X'akers knew the 
aims of learning and the mind of the students. 
Their concern was for the continuation of stu- 
dents' academic life. 

But not all men can be teachers. Not all can 
remain in the academic life forever. For this 
reason the frank presentations of the business- 
men were enlightening and educational, even 
more so because they issued from a completely 
different set of assumptions. According to Dr. 

Mattliews' wish ex))ressed Friilav niglit, the 
\\<\>k<>nd was not an intiMinption to the intel- 
lectual life hut a supplement. Manton t'opeland 
ami his grailuate and undtMgratluate eoiumittees 
are to he i~ougralulated. 


A question of ethics 

Sunday s cha|iel-credit 
lems and jiossibiltes of 

liseussion ol the |)rob- 

a career wth integiit\' 

proved entertaining and stimulating to a degree, 

raise tiiree (juestions: was it good in 

itself? was it ai)pi()|)riate as a 

hut it did 

ehajjel servicer 
was it ap]iropriate as a Williams chapel service? 
To the first of these <|uestious, the answer is yes. 
Dr. Pembertou's talk made an on the whole suc- 
cessful attem|-)t to consider business moralitv 
within a larger context: serving as ]5art of an 
ultimate scheme of values. Mr. Fegley's pajier 
raised tlie aIl-im|iortaut problem of the necessitv 
ol continued seli-exaniinatiou and criticism, and 
it attempted to defend business ethics from a 
l)oint of view which was not itself outside the 
bounds of business. Neithei' ]3r. Pemberton nor 
Mi-. Feglev, however, defined key terms such 
as "ethics" and "morality", and this failing made 
commnnication between the two |)artieipants in 
the discussion virtually iin])ossible. 
It was unfortunate, too, that Mr. Feglev was ill 
and unable to ])resent his papi'r in |)ersoii. His 
substitute, Mr. Herman, though amusing, often 
seemed to miss the jjoint of the (luestions asked 
hiin at the close of the session. The answers he 
did gi\e indicated that it is verv easv for a busi- 
ness man to lose himself in his job. lie often does 
this to such an extent that he loses sight of the 
implications of what he is doing in terms of the 
ultimate ethical results of his actions. Ciiaplain 
DeBoer hit at this |)roblein in his introductory 
remarks when he drew the distinction between 
being and doing. For the I)usinessman, he point- 
ed out, there sliould be no difference between 
the person he wants to be, and the person he 
makes himself bv his actions. 
If one views a chapel service as a confrontation 
of the individual with im|5ortant ideas, Sundav's 
program was appropriate as a chapel service. If, 
on the other liand, one feels that the service 
should ideally be a service of worship involving 
the praising of God by a community of believers, 
Sunday's discussion was not ap]:)ropriate. 
The |)rograin can be justifieil. It was consistent 
with the idea of confrontation alluded to pre- 
\i()usly. but not with the ideal of worshiji. Of 
those in attendance, however, far less than the 
usual number brought books to read, far fewer 
caught forty winks; many more were set think- 
ing by the morning's discussion, and more of 
those in attendance got more in retmn for their 
chapel credit than they normally do.

Many people during recent 
yenr.s linve become concerned with 
tlie future of humanity as it be- 
comes more and more In the grip 
of the machine. Since America i.s 
the heavily industrialized a.s 
well as the most prosperous of 
nations, many of these books have 
dealt with the American whose 
life is more and more controlled 
by the "labor-saving" devices 
which are a great part of our na- 
tional psyche as well as of our 

One of the most consistently 
ppnetrating students of this area 
uf American life has been Joseph 
Wood Krutch wliose most recent 
book, "Human Nature and Human 
Condition", is an attempt at def- 
inition of those terms. He is main- 
ly concerned with an attempt to 
draw a distinction between them 
by discovering: consistent values, 
ideals, and goals representative of 
a continuing human nature, and 
to distinguish this from what he 
finds to be the present human 

Distressed with man's current 
trend toward a complete reliance 
on a .scientific train of thought 
which tends to adopt the deter- 
ministic attitude that men are 
animals and therefore nothing 
more than machines, he reaffirms 
a belief in at least .some moral 
and spiritual absolutes constant 
in human nature. He provides a 
firm foundation for a statement 
of man's continuing humanity. 
and he shows that man indeed 
has an ability to make his own 
decisions out of his own will, not 
merely as a reflex to .some other 

In "The Modern Temper," a 
1929 treatise on the same general 
area of thought, he predicted the 
developments which he finds men 
adhering to today especially as 
to the dominance of scientific 
thought. Aldous Huxley also envis- 
ioned mankind gradually losing 
its humanity in his "Brave New 
World ' and both men expressed 
their fear of society evolving hi- 
to a Utopia of happy robots whose 
whole being was completely di- 
vorced from what we now think of 
as human nature. Huxley has de- 
monstrated in "Brave New World 
Revisited " that the means of com- 
pletely dehumanizing- and mold- 
ing man through medicine, psy- 
chology, and advanced media 
techniques are much closer at 
hand than he had forseen in 1932. 
Krutch also has found that the 
events of the past thirty years 
have borne out his predictions al- 
most entirely. 

Both men do. however, retain 
faith and conviction that there is 
a human nature, and that al- 
though this could be destroyed, by 

making men robots and not men, 
It is definitely worth preservliii^l 
This is a challenge in a world m 
which Krutch .sees that all ii,o 
often people seem to equate hu- 
man nature with present condi- 
tion in its worst aspects. His vk v 
that throughout man's history li:is 
been demonstrated certain mo: il 
and ethical ab.solute values i . 
latins to man's free will to choo;e 
and decide, must be asserted, d . 
fended, and held to by thinkii 15 
men in order to preserve mar's 
luimanity. If science destni s 
man's foundation for belief :ii 
good and evil, and if history is 
viewed as amoral and ruthlc s, 
then there has been and can le 
progress po.ssible for man, town d 
these goals, and he is merely a. 

Ahab's in relation 'o 
the uncaring white whale in M( 1- 
ville's Moby Dick is es.sentially a 
godless one in which success or 
failure of the chase is a complet- - 
ly meaningless question. The de- 
cision by Ahab and the crew 10 
continue il makes necessary a rc- 
.iection of their humanity, and in 
liaving them do this consciou.sly 
and, all except Starbuck. volunla;-- 
ily .seems to be Melville's prophecy 
of the doom of a civilization whi( h 
allows itself to be absorbed in a 
monomaniacai pursuit of mateii- 
nl comfort and scientific ration- 

Krutch a.sserts that man has a 
nature that is not a myth, and 
that these values must be exam- 
ined in light of the present con- 
dition of man in a technological 
age. He analyzes thoroughly the 
conditions which man now labors 
under as well as those which he 
will have to face in the future. 
His concept of man's necessary 
nature must be harmonized with 
and be the guide for man's values 
and goals or man will cease to be 
man. The essay is a thought pro- 
voking and vital study which has 
real value for the career-bound in- 
dividual who must decide whether 
man is or is not a machine.

Carnegie Foundation For Peace Concentrates On 
Studies Of Problems Facing The United Nations 



"oblieration to talk" 

"We have since World War II 
worked on, with, and through the 
United Nations," said Joseph 
Johnson, president of the Carneg- 
ie Endowment for International 
Peace and former professor at 

"With the income from $10,000,- 
000 from Mr. Carnegie we do 
studies on U. N. problems; last 
year, for instance, we published 
literature on the Berlin question 
written by a University of Penn- 
sylvania professor, a former state 
department official, whom we 
commissioned to do the job." 

Comstock Revamps 
Phinney's Favorite 5 

Phinney's Favorite Five, well- 
known in past years for its Dixie- 
land music, is back in swing again 
under the direction of Marc Com- 

The band is entirely new except 
for two members from outside the 
college who played with the group 
last year. During Thanksgiving 
vacation the group auditioned for 
and received a contract with the 
Holland-American Line. Members 
will earn their passage to and from 
Europe by playing aboard ship. 

Comstock stated that he has no 
definite plans as yet to play dur- 
ing their month-and-a-half stay 
in Europe but that they will play 
if they have the opportunity. 

The new band again accents 
Dixieland jazz but plays dance 
music as well. Comstock organized 
the group this fall and has played 
locally at the Alpha Delta Phi 
House, the Alumni House, and at 
Bennington College. 

In the immediate future the 
group has an invitation to play at 
Wilson College in Pennsylvania. 
Comstock is anxious to get more 
engagements and has recently 
had fliers printed to advertise the 

Ephs Seek Sun Fun 

"On The Beach," starring Dave 
Faresky and a cast of a thousand 
girls (four for every guy at latest 
estimate) will hold its sixth an- 
nual presentation in Bermuda this 
spring from March 19-29. 

The trip will offer maximum 
recreation for the Ephmen wearied 
from the exhaustion of hour tests, 
papers, and the general grind. He 
will arrive in Bermuda less than 
twelve hours after classes are con- 
cluded. After ten full days, he 
should return in time for a quick 
cup of coffee before an eight o' 
clock returns him to the muddy 
world of Williamstown. 


Registration for the trip has al- 
ready reached last year's figures 
and Paresky hopes for the largest 
Williams contingent ever. Should 
this be the case, the crew will trav- 
el on an all-Williams jet Viscount. 
This trip will be the most econo- 
mical one ever offered with the 
price of $155 covering round-trip 
transportation, room, and late 
breakfast. The members of Phin- 
ney's Favorite Five and most of 
the Overweight Eight will make 
the trip. 

The trip coincides with Bermuda 
College Week sF>onsored by sever- 
al airlines and the Bermuda Trade 
Development Port. Features of this 
week are a free cruise, calypso en- 
tertainment, Oombey dancers, and 
a special college day at the beach 
featuring an intercollegiate vol- 
leyball tournament. 

Johnson pointed out that the 
organization works by hiring men 
to write on various aspects of 
Peace. The Endowment does its 
best to provide contacts and open 
doors so that the writer may be- 
come well grounded in the facts 
of his subject. The final litera- 
ture is then published in book or 
pamphlet form, or released in an 
arranged press conference. Pre- 
sently the Endowment has com- 
missioned various men to write 
essays on the subject of Peace. In 
the future a book containing the 
essays, entitled "Perspectives of 
Peace," will be released. 

"We maintain a diverse pro- 
gram," stated Johnson. "We be- 
lieve that greater knowledge is 
more likely to lead to the right 
kind of world . . . now we are 
working on a study of citizen edu- 
cation and its effects on world

News Bureau 
Elects Hopper 

The News Bureau has recently 
held elections of their officers for 
the coming school year. President 
is Bruce Hopper '61, and the two 
vice-presidents are Peter S. Smith 
'61 and Charles Dana '61. Directed 
by assistant News Director John 
Hitchcock '50, the bureau is re- 
sponsible for covering all Wil- 
liams sports events for local and 
regional papers. They also issue 
news releases to home town news- 
papers of students concerning 
their college activities. 

Hopper, who is serving as a 
Junior Adviser this year, will act 
as general co-ordinator of the bur- 
eau's activities and work with 
Hitchcock on general policy. Dana, 
who is vice-president of the Pur- 
ple Key Society, will be in charge 
of non-sports publicity as well as 
the financial management of the 
bureau. Also a member of the 
Purple Key, Smith is in general 
control of the sports coverage. 

"The idea of two co-vice presi- 
dents is a new one" Smith said.

Butler - On Problem Of Education 

"The problem of education Is 
not to get knowledge Into the 
mind but out of It." 

John F. Butler, Instructor of 
English began his teaching car- 
eer at the University of Kansas. 
From there he returned to his 
"Alma Mater'', Amherst, where he 
taught English for six years be- 
fore coming to 'Williams last sem- 
ester. He is at present teaching 
two English 1-2 courses and an 
English 5-6 course. 


Butler continued "The way I 
try to get knowledge out of the 
student's mind is by putting the 
student in a position where he 
must or can see something. I be- 
lieve that what stays with any 
student is what he has actually 
seen for himself." 

He emphasized the fact that he 

does not do the student's seeing 
for him. "I keep asking the stu- 
dent what he has seen and urge 
him to express it as far as he can. 
I plan my classes so as to proceed 
from one question to another as 
far as this Is possible. "He frank- 
ly admitted that he can not do it 
all the time." 

Mr. Butler declared that the 
greatest pleasure for him in teach- 
ing comes at the moment when he 
has succeeded "in putting a stu- 
dent in a box that he can't get 
out of without teaching himself 
something." He added with a 
smile, that he has learned "not 
to be upset with the frustrations 
of people working their way out 
of these boxes but rather to en- 
courage their ascent." 

Instructor Butler received his 
undergraduate education at sev- 
eral institutions. He began at the 



(Author ()/ "/ Was n Teen-age Dwarf "," Tlie Many 
LovcK of Dnbie Cillis", etc.) 


To tliosc of you wlio stay out of your student government 
because you believe tlic coniniittce system is just an excuse for 
inaction, let me cite an example to (irove that a conunittee, 
properly led and directed, can Ijc a f^rout force for good. 

Last week the Student Co\mcil met at tlio Duhitli ColleRo of 
Veterinary Medicine and Hellcs-Lcttrcs to discuss purchasing a 
new doormat for tlic students union. It was, I assure you, a 
desjM'ratc proljjeni because Slicrwin K. Sigal'oos, janitor of the 
students imioii, thrcMtciiod flatly to (juit unless a new doormat 
was installed iiiimcdiately. "I'm sick and tired of moi)pin(!; 
that dirty old floor," said Mr. Sinafoos, sohliing eonvnisively. 
(Mr. Sigafons, once a jolly outgoin;; sort, has been crying almost 
steadily since the recent dcatli of his i)et wart hog wlio had Ijcen 
his constant ('(iMipanion for 22 years. Actnally. Mr. Sigafoos is 
nuicli better off without the wart hog, who tusked him viciously 
at least once a day, but a com])anionshi]) of 22 years is, I sup- 
pose, not lightly relinciuished. The colloge tried to give Mr. 
Sigafoos a new wart liog— a frisky little follow with fio])py ears 
and a waggly tail — but Mr. Sigafoos only turned his back and 
cried the harder.) 


But I digress. The Student Council mot, discussed the door- 
mat for eight or ten hours, and then referred it to a committee. 
Tliere were some who scoffed tlicn and said nothing would ever 
be heard of the doormat again, but they reckoned witliout 
Invictus Millstone. 

Invictus Millstone, chairman of the doormat committee, was 
a man of action— ZjV/ic and Icnii and hen and, naturally, a 
smoker of Marlboro Cigarettes. Wliy do I say "naturally"'? 
Because, dear friends, active men and active women don't have 
time to fuss and fumble and exijeriment witli cigarettes. They 
need to be sure their cigarettes will never fail them-that the 
flavor will always be mild and mellow— that the filter will 
always filter— that the pack will always be soft or flip-top. In 
short, they need to be sure it's Marlboro-dependable, con- 
stant, tried and true Marlboro. Smoke one. You'll see. 

Well sir, Invictus Millstone chaired his doormat committee 
witli such vigor and dispatch that, when tlie Student Council 
met only one week later, he was able to rise and deliver the 
following reconunendations: 

1. That the college build new schools of botany, hydraulic 
engineering, tropical medicine, Indo-Germanic languages, and 

2. That the college drop football, put a roof on the stadium, 
and turn it into a low-cost housing project for married students. 

3. That the college raise faculty Balaries by $5000 per year 
across the board. 

4. That the college secede from the United States. 

5. That the question of a doormat for the studenta union be 
referred to a subcommittee. 

So let us hear no more defeatist talk about the committee 
•ystem. It can be made to work 1 » .«» m.. abi™ 

You don't need a committee to tell you how good Marlboroi 
are. You Just need yourself, a Marlboro, and a match.. . Or 
if you like mildness but you don't like fUters, try Marlboro • 
lUter cigarette— Philip MorrU. 

University of Maine, "before the 
army," studying engineering and 
continued this at North Carolina 
State. He then spent a semester 
at the University of Massachusetts 
where he switched from Engineer- 
ing to English. He finally receiv- 
ed his A. B. where he spent his 
two final undergraduate years. 
His graduate work was done at 
Brown University. 

When asked the inevitable 
question of what does he think of 
the Williams' student Butler re- 
plied that he "thought that the 
Williams' student was a good hard 
working student, very similar to 
the Amherst student." He quickly 
added that it was hard for him 
to make a comparison between 
Amherst and Williams students 
because he is teaching different 
types of courses. "Both the stu- 
dents .seem to me to work hard, 
but then again" he grinned. "I 
could never detect people who did 
not work hard." 

At Amherst, Mr. Butler taught 
an English 1-2 course that is very 
different from the English 1-2 
course he is presently teaching 
at Williams. The Amherst course, 
in Butler's own words, is "a in composing. Each stu- 
dent is asked to figure out what 
it means to compose anything in 
words. He is given topics by the 
instructor which he is expected 
to develop by using his own ex- 
periences. A theme, such as this, 
is due every time the class meets." 

Mr. Butler concluded that just 
as the students could not accur- 
ately be compared neither could 
the courses, because they were 
different type courses. He empha- 
sized the fact that he "enjoys 
teaching English 1-2, at Williams 
very much."

The first three weeks in Africa 
will be spent meeting the heads 
of state, political parties, labor 
unions, and religious and educat- 
ion leaders. The students fa- 
miliarize themselves before leav- 
ving New York with the country 
they intend to visit by writing a 
required research paper on some 
.social, political, economic, religi- 
ous, or ethnic aspect of the coun- 

Each section then joins a group 
of African students and travels 
into the bush country where they 
spend the summer with a tribe. 
During this five week period, the 
students work on assigned projects 
requiring physical labor. "The 
l3urpose of this program is to work 
with the students and build up a 
rapport with them," commented 

After finishing the two month 
summer program, all the groups 
will fly back to London, where 
they will spend a week before re- 
turning to the United States. 

The Morningside Center, a pri- 
vate organization, pays for the 
cost of transportation. The expen- 
ses of the trip, which total about 
$900, are paid for by the student. 

The exchange between Ameri- 
can and African students who 
participated in the program is ef- 
fective in developing food rela-

Guests Regulated 

The issuance of guest cards has 
become exigent for the Dartmouth 
Winter Carnival on February 5-6. 
Athletic teams. Dartmouth dates, 
and alumni have reserved nearly 
all available accommodations 
within a 30-mile radius of Han- 
over, and those directing the Car- 
nival feel that additional guests be restricted. 

A limited number of guest cards 
have been allotted to Dartmouth 
undergraduates who have invited 
guests. These cards will be nec- 
essary for admittance into frat- 
ernities or dormitories. 

"In view of the crowded hous- 
ing conditions and the absolute 
impossibility of sleeping in a col- 
lege building without a guest card, 
we strongly advise that anyone de- 
siring to attend the 1960 Carni- 
val secure a guest card from a 
Dartmouth undergraduate before 
leaving for Hanover. Without a 
guest card attendance at the Car- 
nival is highly inadvisable", said 
Jon K. Meyer, president of the 
Carnival Board. 

The shapeless hunk of snow Im- 
paled on a telephone pole in front 
of Chapin Hall will soon become 
the heart's desire of every good 
Ephman, a twenty-five foot high 
beer mug surmounted by a pair of 
shapely legs. 


At least that is the hope of the 
Freshman Snow Sculpture Com- 
mittee headed by Tom Boschen 
and Bill Boyd. A varied, chilly, 
ragged and enthusiastic crew has 
been working chain-gang fashion 
to fullfill their hopes. Progress of 
late has been extremely rapid, 
thanks to Bill "Polar Bear" Bur- 
nett who conceived the idea of 
throwing bushel baskets full of 
snow along a line of workers, in 
the manner of a bucket brigade. 
Unfortunately the last worker al- 
ways .seems to finish work bear- 
ing a marked resemblance to the 
Abominable Snowman, and there 
are probably some freshmen who 
will not be seen again until the 
spring thaw. Boschen, however, 
feels that in enterprises of the 
scope of the Pyramids, the Great 
Wall of China, and the Snow 
Sculpture, a few workers are ex- 

The front of the mug will be 
decorated with a huge grinning 
cow and the numerals "1960" in 
the hope that celebrants will be 
able to give the correct year, if 
asked, thus maintaining the ap- 
pearance of sobriety. The most 
unusual feature will be a mon- 
strous figure scaling the back of 
the mug. It will be impressive if 
there is enough snow to build it, 
and even more astounding if it 
doesn't fall off and crush some- 
one. The snow sculpture is the 
design of Roger Mandle, '63, and 
John Kifner, '63.

Vance Packard, David Riesman,

Junior Bob Montgomery plays one up as Don Brayton, high scorer 
Bob Mahland, and assorted Coast Guard players look on. 

Cagers Even Record 
With Coast Guard Win 

The Williams basketball s(]iiad evened its lecoid at 6-G by top- 
piiiff a tall Coast Guard team, 88-72, Saturday nij^iit. 

The Eph attaek was paced by the fine jiim]5-sliooting of Bob 
Montgomery. The 6-3 forward sunk seven field ffoals and added 
ten of twelve from the foul line 

to lead the scorers. Jay Johnston, 
now vying with Pete Mulhausen 
for a starting post, drove for six 
field goals and thirteen points. 


Little George Boynton had a 
fine night, intercepting numerous 
passes and leading the Eph fast 
break. High-scorer Bob Mahland 
was limited to eleven points by 
the Coast Guard defense, but did 
a fine job of feeding Montgomery 
and the backcourt men. Mahland 
needs only 136 more points to 
break Geoff Morton's season scor- 
ing record. 

Coast Guard's only real threat 
came early In the third quarter 
after the Ephs had jumped to a 
46-36 halftime edge. The seamen 
closed the gap to four points be- 
fore the Ephmen regained their 
touch and pulled away. Coach Al 
Shaw substituted frequently in 
the final quarter. 

The Williams squad shot 47 
per cent from the floor, sink- 
ing 30 of 64 against their taller 
opponents. The game was won, 
however, on the foul line as the 
Ephs sank 28 of 36, while the 
home squad was limited to 12 of 18. 

This was the squad's ninth con- 
secutive road engagement. They 
returned home last night to face 
a vastly-improved Springfield 
team. Tomorrow they tangle with 
a strong Siena quintet which has 
faced major college squads such 
as Villanova and St. Francis.

Hosts Springfield 

Williams freshman cagers will 
be in search of their sixth victory 
of the season, tonight, as they re- 
sume their schedule after a two 
week enterim, playing host to 
Springfield's squad at 6:30 in La- 
sell gym. 

As usual, the squad will play 
tne game 'oy ear," as Coach 
isoDby Coombs knows nothing a- 
bout tne visiting Bpringlield 

squad. He restated his philosphy 
of preparing for the remainder of 
the season "one game at a time,'' 
and promised that the team," will 
play each game as if it is our 

"Right now I'm plagued with 
the wonderful problem of having 
too many starters," he added, and 
proceeded to name six boys from 
which, barring injuries, his start- 
ing five would be selected. The 
six men are Harry Lum, Pete Ob- 
ourn, Steve Weinstock, Dan Voor- 
hees, Roger Williams, and Gordon 

Two weeks ago the high scor- 
ing ( 72 plus points per game) 
Eph five captured its first Little 
Three game of the season, down- 
ing Wesleyan with a late scoring 
surge, 71-51. This victory put them 
momentarily in first place with a 
1-0 record. Pour of Coombs' star- 
ters broke into double figures, 
Roger Williams, forward, copping 
scoring honors with 16 points, in 
a game which saw Williams out- 
score Wesleyan by 14 points in 
the final 10 minutes of the game. 

Grad To Present 
Famous Ski Film 

John Jay will present his lat- 
est ski spectacular, "Mountain 
Magic", at Chapin Hall Tuesday, 
February 9 at 8:00 p. m. for the 
benefit of the Williams Program. 
The film, celebrating twenty 
yrs. of ski movie making for John 
Jay, Williams '38, is approximately 
centered on the past three Winter 
Olympics at Cortina, Oslo, and 
St. Moritz. 

According to Henry Flynt Jr., 
the audience which saw the mov- 
ie at Chapin Hall in December 
was excited by the slalom, down- 
hill and jumping events. These 
events, which involve high speeds, 
test the best skiers in the world 
to the extremes of their ability. 
In addition photographer Jay 
catches these moments of sport 
from the most revealing camera 
angles and offers them to us in 
color. An Olympic shot of parti- 
cular interest shows Williams ski 
coach, Ralph Townsend in the 
procession at St. Moritz in '48. 

Only the first half of the mov- 
ie is devoted to the Olympics, how- 
ever. The other half takes you 
skiing around the world from Ja- 
pan to Europe, from Africa to Mt. 
Snow. John Jay is called the "dad- 
dy" of all ski photographers not 
only because of his ability to pre- 
sent skiing at its best. He also has 
a distinct knack of presenting 
skiing situations that are enter- 
taining because of their trans- 
cendant comic nature. 

Those attending "Mountain 
Magic" will contribute directly to 
the Williams Program, as Jay is 
turning the entire proceeds over 
to the drive. Tickets are on sale for 
the February 9 performance and 
can be obtained from Fred No- 
land, who is coordinating ticket 
sales on campus. Reserved seats 
are available at the House of 

Plimpton . . .

with distinction in the office

Fresh Squash Team 
Challenges Deerfield 

The Freshman Squash Team 
will be out to wrest its first vic- 
tory of the season from Deerfield 
today. Subdued by Harvard and 
Choate, the Eph squad expects to 
have difficulty in defeating the 
Deerfield team which will be play- 
ing on their own courts. The lat- 
ter boasts wins over Dartmouth, 
Andover, and Choate, in spite of 
having lost its three leading play- 
ers through graduation. 

George Kilborn will lead off for 
Williams, followed by Brooks God- 
dard and Stu Brown in the second 
and third positions. The top men 
in the Deerfield lineup will be

Dietze Stars As Freshman Skateri: 
Trounce Taft 5-2, for 3rd Straight 

By a score of 5-2 the Eph fresh- 
man hockey team defeated the 
Taft School in an away game last 
Saturday. Blazing into a 3-0 lead 
by the end of the first period, the 
freshmen held off an attempted 
Taft rally in the second period and 
scored again twice in the third. 

Dave Dietze was high scorer for 
Williams, with two goals, whili- 
Andy Holt, George Renwick, and 
Gene Goodwillie each contribu- 
ted one. Although Taft spoiled his 
shutout record maintained in the 
first two games of the season. 
Bob Rich still put on a good per- 
formance, making 23 .saves. 

The team now has a 3-0 record, 
having beaten Hotchkiss and Cho- 
ate previously. Leading scorers 
for the team are Roe, with three 
goals and three assists. Holt, 
three goals and three assists, 
Goodwille, three goals. Maxwell 
two goals and two assists, and 
Renwick and Dietze with two 
goals apiece. Goalie Rich has

Winless Eph Matmen Hope To Snap 
Losing Streak Against Coast Guard 

The Williams wrestling team 
will be looking for its first victory 
when it meets the Coast Guard 
Academy this Saturday in a mat- 
ch at New London. Coach Delis- 
ser expects the meet to be evenly 
contested all the way into the hea- 
vier weight classes, but thinks the 
Ephmen have a good chance to 
take it with the usual determined 
performance from every man. 

Having lost to perrenially strong 
Harvard and Springfield teams so 
far this season, the wrestlers 
will be hoping to repeat last year's 
record, when they defeated the 
Coast Guard, 16-11. 

Regular heavyweight Art Walt-

probably be replaced by sopho- 
more Peter Hayes, while John

*U.S. Constitution' 
Is Chapin Theme 

liY ]Oliy KIlNEIi 
Most revolutions, from the 
storming of the Bastille to the 
shooting galleries of Havana have 
been based on emotionalism and 
blood-letting. The American Eev- 
olution, on the other hand, repre- 
.sents the triumph of gradual de- 
velopment, rationality, and argu- 

This is the theme of the current 
exhibition at the Chapin Library, 
entitled "The U. S. Constitution 
and its Origins." This exhibition, 
on view until March 12th, traces 
the development of our Constitu- 
tion from the first declaration of 
the ideas of republican govern- 
ment to their actual embodiment. 

One of the first statements of 
the principles of representative 
government, George Buchanan's 
Kcrum Scotiarum Historia, print- 
ed in Edinburgh in 1582. This 
section includes the works of 
Thomas Hobbes, James Harring- 
ton, John Locke, and Montesquieu. 
The early laws and constitutions 
of the Plymouth Colony, New Eng- 
land, New York. Pennsylvania, and 
Virginia, reflect this spirit of lib- 
eralism. They are remarkable for, 
in the words of the exhibition 
texts, their "sound common sense, 
political insight, and a keen sense 
of personal rights, with a due and 
necessary degree of severity." This 
spirit is shown less successfully in 
a rare edition of the Articles of 

The highlight of the exhibition, 
however, is George Mason's copy 
of the second draft of the pro- 
posed Constitution, annotated with 
his manuscript objections to the 
plan. The controversy between pol- 
itical writers & statesmen over the 
proposed plan is shown by the 
great number of pamphlets and 
treatises, both for and against it. 
Notable among these is the 
Federalist Papers. The exhibition 
is concluded by printings of the 
Constitution, including the first 
printing of its official version.

Author Morris Ernst 
Speaks In "Telettion" 


Morris Ernst, well known author, lecturer and lawyer will 
conduct a unicjue di.scussion in Jesup Hall Monday night at 7:30. 
Under the sijonsorsliij) of the Adelphic Union, Mr. Ernst will con- 
sider four t()|iics of current interest. His remarks will he followed 
by a question and answer period. 

Ernst, a 1909 alumnus of 'Wil- 
liams, has described his address 
as a "telethon" wherein he will 
cover "The Population Explosion", 
"TV Quiz Scandals", "Censorship 
of Books", and "Statism through 

Ernst, a member of Phi Gamma 
Delta and the Gargoyle Society 
while at Williams, is recognized 
as one of the leading authorities 
on censorship in the United States. 

Among the many books that 
Ernst has authored are tJtopia 
1976, and The Best is Yet. Ernst 
came out in favor of Roosevelt's 
plan to pack the Supreme Court 
in 1936 with his book Ultimate 
Power which discussed various as- 
pects of the proposed "Court 
Packing Law". 

During his long and varied ca-

easurer whih," Keck Jones, Tom 
Fox, and Dick VeiTille were sel- 
ected as representatives to the col- 
lege Council. Paul Mersereau and 
fad Day are the first and second 
alternates, respectively, to the CC. 
The Sophomores elected Ash Cros- 
by as sec-treas., Ron Durham and 
Skip Rutherford as representatives 
to the CC, with Pete Thoms and 
Chip Black as alternates. In the 
freshmen class Mike Totten was 
elected as sec-treas. and Stuart 
Brown as representative to the CC. 
Morris Kaplan and Bob Seidman 
are his alternates. 

Widmer commented on student 
responsibility in college affairs de- 
claring, "The Student Govern- 
ment at 'Williams can be a res- 
ponsible body and still accomplish 
little without the interest and sup- 
port of the college. The coming 
year will hold in store enormous 
opportunities that only a con- 
scientious college and its College 
Council can take at the flood." 

Churchill declared, "I feel that 
the Freshman Council can be ex- 
tremely active during the coming 
semester and accomplish many 
of the objectives and proposals 
that have been left hanging be- 
tween the semesters. The large 
turnout of freshmen at the polls

terest in class activities and I 
hope they will continue to take 
such active participation in stu- 
dent affairs." 

Jere Behrman said of his aims 
and desires, "Our major project 
on the Sophomore Council will 
be the running of Spring House- 
parties. I wish to be able to take 
full advantage of the many poten- 
tialities in our class so as to have 
an outstanding weekend. I hope 
to serve responsibly both on the 
Sophomore Council and the Col- 
lege Council in face of the im- 
portant issues involving the 'Wil- 
liams community."

Association Of Physics Teachers 
Awards Professor Winch Citation 

Ralph P. Winch, Barclay Jer- 
main Professor of Natural Phil- 
osophy at Williams, has recently 
been awarded a citation for dis- 
tinctive service by the American 
Association of Physics Teachers. 

The award was made at the 
annual meeting of the AAPT in 
the hotel New Yorker on January 
30th. Eligible for the award are 
some 4,600 physics teachers in 
the United States, Canada, and 
South America. A distinguished 
service citation also was given to 
Professor Harold K. Schilling of 
Pennsylvania State University. 
The Oersted Medal, highest honor 
given by the AAPT, went to Pro- 
fessor R. W. Pohl of Gottingen, 
Germany, an honorary member 
of the association. 

Winch's citation reads: "for 
contribution to the teaching of 
physics." He retired this year af- 
ter serving five years as chairman 
of the AAPT's membership com- 
mittee. In that period the organi- 
zation's membership has grown 
from a total of 2,967 to this year's 
all-time high of 4,600. Last year 
800 new members were added, the 
biggest increase in any one year 
of the association's history. 

Other factors leading to the sel- 
ection of Winch for the honor in- 
clude publication of his textbook 
"Electricity and Magnetism" in 
February, 1955. Now used by sev- 
enty colleges and universities, the 
book is in its fourth printing. In 
1958 Winch was chairman of the 
New England section of the Am- 
erican Physical Society. Four 
years ago he was chairman of the 
committee which set up the pres- 


dition, he was President Roose- 
velt's personal representative dur- 
ing World War II on various mis- 
sions to England, and served on 
governmental missions to Germa- 
ny in 1946 and to the Virgin Is- 
lands In 1935. E I'licr he was spe- 
cial counsel for the American 
Newspaper Guild and was arbiter 
for Mayor LaGuardla in the 1934 
Taxicab Strike. 

Alumni Drive 

The Alumni Fund Drive has 
received $295,000 in contribu- 
tions so far, Charles B. Hall, 
executive secretary of the drive, 
announced Tuesday. This sum 
is $5,000 short of this year's 
$300,000 goal. 

The drive, conducted annual- 
ly by the Williams College So- 
ciety of Alumni, generally ends 
on January 31, but will con- 
tinue, this year, through Feb- 
ruary 15. This extension, es- 
tablished at the midwinter 
meeting of the college Board of 
Trustees and is designed to 
compensate for a two week de- 
lay in the initiation of the drive 
last fall. 

ent system of using undergradu- 
ate teaching assistants at 'Wil- 
liams to help meet the pressing 
teacher shortage. In 1956-1957 
there were 23 undergraduate tea- 
ching assistants at Williams; now 
thre are 31. 

Winch is also on the appoint- 
ments and promotions committee 
at Williams, and is chairman of 
the graduate study committee. He 
has served as chairman of the 
curriculum committee and was 
president of the Williams Facul- 
ty Club for two years. 

Winch came to Williams in the 
fall of 1931 as an instructor, was 
promoted to assistant professor 
in 1936, associate professor in 19- 
42, and received the title of Bar- 
clay Jermain Profesor of Natural 
Philosophy in 1950. He was a visit- 
ing professor at Princeton in 19- 
42, at Brown in 1952, and at Wes- 
leyan in 1959. 

Winch commented that he was 
"very much plea(sed" with the 
honor of the award. He mentioned 
that he will continue to be a mem- 
ber of the AAPT membership com- 
mittee, in charge of the New Eng- 
land area. 

Purple Key Weekend 
Offers Sports, Dance 

The second "big weekend'' of 
the 1960 winter season will be 
Purple Key Weekend on the 26- 
27 February. 

Charlie Dana, '61, Key vice- 
president, said that the weekend 
emphasis would be on athletic 
events, home contests against Lit- 
tle Three opposition. On Saturday 
afternoon the varsity hockey six 
will meet Wesleyan. At the same 
time both freshman and varsity 
squash and wrestling contingents 
will take on their rivals from Am- 
herst. Saturday evening the bas- 
ketball teams will meet The Card- 
inals from Wesleyan, the frosh 
at 6:30 and the varsity at 8:00. 

Following the basketball game 
Saturday night the Purple Key 
will sponsor a square dance In 
Baxter Hall. No admission will be 
charged and free beer will be 
available in the Rathskeller. For 
the dance there will be two call- 
ers, one in the Freshman lounge 
and the other in the Upperclass 
lounge, to handle the expected ov- 
erflow crowd. 

Late Studiers Claim 
West College Heating 
Insufficient At Night 

The Buildings and Grounds De- 
partment received a complaint 
that the heat in 'West College is 
shut off at night, making the 
building uncomfortably cold for 
late studiers. 

Superintendent Peter Welanetz, 
when queried about the situation, 
stated that the heat is shut off in 
West and a number of other build- 
ings from midnight to six in the 

"'We have installed 'Weatherman 
automatic controls on about ten 
of the buildings," Welanetz said. 
"The controls are regulated by a 
clock in the building and stop the 
passage of steam at a certain 
hour. We'll have to check into 
West and see if the control Is reg- 
ulated properly." 

Welanetz explained that there 
are overriding thermostats in sev- 
eral of the buildings which would 
turn the heat on over the control 
if the room temperature dropped 
sufficiently low. The cut-in point 
on these thermostats should be 70 

The complaint was the first re- 
ceived by Buildings and Grounds 
since the installation of the auto- 
matic system. The controls help 
to reduce heating costs and will 
someday be installed in every 
building. On buildings without 
controls students leave the heat 
on and open the windows at 
night, letting much of the heat 
escape to the outside.

Convincing proof 

The John Jay ski film being shown in Chapiii 
Hall on TuestUiy for the benefit of the Williams 
Program is an excellent movie by the world's 
leauinj; ski photoj^rai^her. The Williams Pn)jj;ram 
is definitely a worthy cause, since every facet 
of it is directed toward im))rovin^ the already 
high standards of the Williams education in all 
its phases. 

The Program which President Baxter has des- 
cribed as "my last big job" has ended its special 
gifts stage with 61 per cent of its total achieved. 
The call now goes out to every alumnus, jxirent 
and friend of Williams to do his part toward 
]jushing it over the top. The undergraduates who, 
with their succeeding generations, will benefit 
from this must also do their part. 

The movie ne.\t Tuesday is the easiest step, and 
a packed house will go a long way toward siiow- 
ing ajipreciation by the student body for the hard 
work of everyone concerned. The real job to 
be done, however, is to give enthusiastic sujd- 
])ort to the program through all means of alumni- 
undergraduate contact. This will aid immeasin-- 
ably to the eventual success of the ]3rograni, and 
serve as convincing proof diat the students now 
at Williams believe in the concepts of education 
they are j^articipating in and wish to see them 
continue at the same high level. 


A new face 

To the new jiresident of Amherst College, con- 
gratulations and welcome. 

Dr. Calvin H. Plimpton goes to Amherst with 
experience in the fields of education, adminis- 
tration, and medicine. A 1939 graduate of Am- 
herst, he has taught at Columbia, as well as 
serving as a,ssistant dean at the Columbia Medi- 
cal school. He has been highly praised by the 
Amherst board of trustees, and will be under 
constant pressures from the complex world of 
modern education. His job to continue develop- 
ing the college in all fields of liberal education 
is a difficidt one, and we wish him well. 


Two-way street 

Student attitude toward Thursday's College 
Council elections was neither enthusiastic nor 

Some students were indifferent because they 
felt the College Council is administrative. But 
interest was not completely lacking. Some be- 
lieved the student government might have a 
responsibility for leadership as well. It does. 

The CC must criticize and encourage certain 
activities through distribution of fluids. Besides 
encouraging and coordinating activities, how- 
ever, CC members can initiate action. They need 
not search for unimi^ortant issues; they can de- 
lineate and proceed against ]3roblems that exist, 
not merely dispose of those which arise. 

Committees are the working mechanism of the 
CC. In conjunction with the Social Council the 
possibilities of a coherent and comprehensive 
foreign student program will be studied through 
a committee now being formed. If College Coun- 
cil members are enthusiastic they can lend im- 
petus to committees. If they want interested 
students they should try Stii Levy's recent sug- 
gestion for soliciting applications before ap- 
pointing committees. 

If oin- representatives are interested in ]50sitive 
contributions to student life they must not only 
coordinate but encourage; not merely appoint 
committees but take an interest in them. The 
College Council now has this opjjortunity. 


First annual tradition ? 

Mike Dively and Jim Campaigne have put in a 
lot of time and effort on their Cunent Affairs 
weekend j^roposal which was approved by the 
CC on Monday night. They deserve to be com- 
mended for their initiative on a project that has 
great potential value. Hopefully the student body 
will support it in great fashion so that it can 
become another valuable addition to the list of 
first annual traditions.

The Amherst Student 

January 31, 1960 

P'reedom of the scholastic press again became an

In taking action, the committee has neglected 
its resi3onsibilites in the unwritten contract which 
must exist between any free press and its reading 

The responsibilities of the press in this contract 
are, we believe, to jireseut the news accurately 
and to guide public o]5inion prudently. These re- 
sponsibilities become all the more acute in a 
community (such as our academic one) in which 
one |)a]ocr holds a monopoly. 

At the same time, the )Dublic bears the responsi- 
hilitv of finding effective means for guarding a- 
gaiust an irres)5onsible press, while remaining 
sensitive to the rights and liberties of a respon-

Election reform ? 

With the comjiletion of the 1960 version of the 
College Council and class elections, a reconsid- 
eration of the election procedure is in order. 

The most imj^ortant criticism of the present sys- 
tem is that it neglects the special interests and 
cpialificaticms of tlie candidates. A man solelv 
interested in the office of secretary-treasurer, for 
example, is likely to end up as CC representa- 
tive, or class president. 

Several alternatives to the ]Dresent system have 
been )5roposed. One would permit candidates to 
indicate which office they )Drefer on the ballot, 
with the proviso that a man could rim for any 
office; his name would be listed under each cate- 
gory of the ballot. 

A second alternative would permit a candidate 
to run for only one office— his name would ap- 
pear under one category of the ballot. 

It would behoove the new CC to undertake a 
consideration of its election )3rocedures, and to 
come u]0 with a system which would jicrmit 
candidates to rim for offices best suited to their 



Clearly the freshman class is not yet oriented 
to the Williams Way of Doing Things. 

Early in the week, two candidates for freshman 
offices circulated letters among their classmates 
which indicated that they ( the candidates ) were 
actually jirepared to take a stand on certain is- 
sues. This is unheard of. Surely their JA's cannot 
have been so deficient in the process of orienta- 
tion as to neglect to warn these fledgling politi- 
cians that at Williams few people approve of a 
class officer taking a stand on any issue whatso- 

This same freshman class seems also to be at- 
tem])ting to initiate the heretical idea of extra 
classes— that's right, classes outside the curri- 
culum. For example, a group of 20 freshmen 
met with i^hilosoijhy professor Versenyi Tuesday 
night in an effort to "learn something about phil- 
osophy." This could present a serious problem 
to the local movie moguls. As it is now, only 
honois courses meet at night, and there aren t 
many of them. 

Can it be that there is some fresh intellectual 
vitality on this campus? Can it be that there 
are some who, in the cajiacity of class offices, 
are interested in doing as well as being? 



It was errpneously reported in the Career Weekend 
special issup of January 28 that Robert Cramer '40

district of Massachusetts. He is a Democrat. 


Roche'/ Lively Exchange Oi Ideas^ 

hil Frank Lloijd 
"I would never have come to teach at Williams if I didn't think 
diat it had a good English de|)artnient," saitl Thomas Roche, hi- 
stiuctor in iMiglish. Roche is leaving Williams next year to teach 
at Princeton, where lie attended 
graduate school and received his 
Ph. D. "about four days before 
coming to Williams." 

His varied scholarly career has 
also included undergraduate work 
at Yale, a year of teaching high 
school Latin in New Haven ("en- 
joyable, but no time to myself), 
and a year at Cambridge under a 
Henley Fellowship, where he stud- 
ied Spenser with C. S. Lewis. 

"I enjoy teaching at a small col- 
lege, but eventually I want gradu- 
ate students under me to explore 
the byways of my specialty instead 
of giving them only the basic 
foundation. Princeton offers a 
much larger library for my further 
study, and they have a large fund 
to send scholars abroad to peruse 
old manuscripts in Europe, a nec- 
essary part of my field." 

Roche next turned to the Eng- 
lish department here. "I find it 
a lively intellectual atmosphere 
where there is a constant ex- 
change of ideas. English 1 at Wil- 
liams, a course whose merits are 
often under discussion, does a good 
job of teaching students how to 
read works. I think, however, that 
it will eventually be changed as 
high schools take over in the next 
few years its remedial reading as- 
pect and enable us to give a wider 
range of English literature." 
"One of the advantages Williams 
has to offer, the Chapin Library, 
is not taken advantage of by the 
students. Each one should use it 
at least to see what old books look 
like, and find the difference be- 
tween modern editions of Chaucer, 
Shakespeare, and Milton and the 
medieval texts." 

"I am now giving a seminar in 
allegory called 'Independent 
Study' in which we are using 
books in Chapin. This is a course 
I've always wanted to teach, part- 
ly to see how much Spenser I can 
teach to very bright students as 
more or less training for Prince- 
ton, where I will eventually be 
able to give this type of work." 

Of one of the more controver- 
sial subjects of Williams, Koche 
had this to say: "I am opposed to 
compulsory chapel, as I think 
quite a few members of the facul- 
ty are. This system defeats the 
spiritual purpose of religion. I es- 
pecially object to the idea of giv- 
ing chapel credit for a Career 
Weekend panel. Religion should 
bring an emotional uplift, and giv- 
ing credit for a purely moral dis- 
cussion shows that compulsory 
chapel is essentially a non-relig- 
ious observance."

Sproat On 19th Century Liberals 

'For years they defended lalsez 
falre and, at the same time, de- 
fended those who were making 
laisez faire obsolete." Thus, John 
Sproat, associate professor of hi.s- 
tory, spealting at the faculty lec- 
ture Thursday afternoon, present- 
ed the central paradox of an es- 
sentially ineffective movement. 

The movement to which he re- 
ferred was that of the post-Civil 
War Liberal reformists. Its inef- 
fectiveness, Sproat maintained, 
emphasized the impossibility of 
acting politically without prac- 
ticing politics. 

This liberal movement was, es- 
sentially, a reaction to what Mark 
Twain called the "gilded age". Its 
leaders "saw everywhere men who 
were, in divers and imaginative 
ways, milking the national treas- 
ury." They interpreted the prob- 
lems of the nation as moral ones, 
augmented by the interference of 
an oversized government in the 
affairs of business. Their answer 
to these problems was a return to 
the orthodox economics of laisez

faire and the election to office of 
the only moral men available — 


Mr. Sproat lUlribuled the fail- 
ure of their mission, both to in- 
ternal and external problems. In- 
ternally, they not only naively in- 
terpreted political-economic prob- 
lems as moral but, more devastat- 
ing, they attempted to establish 
themselves above politics. Edward 
Godkin, chief spokesman for the 
movement, was himself a "snob 
and Victorian prude" who dili- 
gently avoided contact with the 

In the I870's and 80's two major 
external developments threw the 
movement into a self-destructive 
hysteria. They interpreted the pre- 
valent labor strikes as a grave dan- 
ger to private property and view- 
ed the development of economics 
as a social science, stressing the 
inadequacy of orthodox economics 
as the antithesis of laisez faire. 
Unable to act effectively themsel- 
ves, and unwilling to support any 
political program endangering 
their position, they fell back upon 
that faction which represented 
the last remanents of laisez fau'e. 
They actively supported big busi- 

Thus, their political aloofness 

drove them from ineffectiveness to 
inconsistency, rendering them de- 
magogues not only for the cause 
of laisez faire but also for that 
element which was proving laisez 
faire impossible.

Kurt Tauber To Teach At Williams; 
Expert In New German Nationalism 

Kurt P. Taiibcr has come to 
IJulfalo where he was an Assi.sta 
Tauber is a visiting professor for 
this semester only. 

Tauber is concerned with liber- 
al democracy, in fact, the title 
of the Political Science 6 course 
is the "Crisis of Liberal Democ- 
racy". His investigation of Ger- 
man Nationalism is undertaken 
with an eye to the possibilities of 
the success of liberal democracy 

"The average German has un- 
dergone no spiritual catharsis as 
a result of the Hitlerian experi- 
ence and World War II. The maj- 
ority of the German polity is still 
traditionalist and conservatist or- 
iented with a proclivity toward 
authoritarian government, much 
in the same manner as Americans, 
but without the saving grace of 
a liberal democratic tradition 
which serves to temper the right- 
ist tendencies. In America there is 
the basic assumption made by all 
that a democratic, egalitarian 
political system is the best, where- 
as the Germans make no such as- 
sumption. Therefore, the prob- 
lem is to convince the Germans 
of the validity of this assumption." 

He came to this country from 
Vienna in 1939 after Hitler moved 
into Austria. After spending a 
year in a high school to learn 
English, he entered Harvard where 
he received an B. S. in chemistry. 
During the war, Tauber "decided 
that the problems of politics were 
not being solved and Investigated

Varsity Shi Squad 

In the first real test of their 
strength, the Williams varsity ski 
team will compete in the Dart- 
mouth Winter Carnival this week- 
end. This will be their first four- 
event meet, with both Alpine and 
Nordic events. 

The field will be dominated by 
the two giants of New England 
skiing, Dartmouth and Middle- 
bury, last year's victor. Williams 
will field a relatively inexperien- 
ced squad, although Captain 
Brooks Stoddard, Boots Coleman, 
and Spike Kellogg have done well 
in early meets this year. The re- 
turn of Senior Bill Judson should 
strengthen the Eph squad. 

Sophomore Spike Kellogg, who 
placed fourth in time among twen- 
ty skiers in the Putney Relays, 
should make cross country our 
strongest event. He will be backed 
up by Stoddard and Coleman. The 
jumping in the Nordic events will 
be handled by Phillips, Stoddard, 
and Tyler. Pour-event men Stod- 
dard, Coleman, Kellogg, and Jud- 
son should add strength to the Al- 
pine Events.

crowd at l.asull gyni Tuesday.

The outstanding play of sub 
guard Jay Johnston was instru- 
mental in the victory. Johnston 
effectively contained Springfield 
sharpshooter DiChiara in the sec- 
ond half. In addition, he contribu- 
ted what was perhaps the clinch- 
ing basket when he drove under

Montgomery and Mahiand led 
the Eph attack with 17 markers 
apiece, Montgomery in addition 
did an outstanding job in holding 
his own under the boards against 
his taller Springfield adversaries. 
Mahiand hit for seven of eight 
from the foul line and played fine 
defensive basketball, blocking four 
or five Springfield attempts. 


Captain George Boynton played 
erratic basketball, making several 
key steals, but exhibiting some 
very sloppy passing. His long pas- 
ses to Guzzetti accounted for four 
of Lou's eleven points. 

Williams will be hoping to re- 
main on the winning road tomor- 
row when they tackle U Mass at 
home. The Redmen topped the 
Ephs on the way to the Spring- 
field tournament title, but have 
since been upset by Springfield. 

MuirOptimistic About 
Boivdoin Swim Meet 

"We are optimistic, and with 
reason," said Coach Bob Muir of 
his swimming team's chances in 
the away meet this Saturday with 
Bowdoin. Muir emphasized, how- 
ever, that Bowdoin has improved 
greatly since last year, and that 
he expects no repeat of last sea- 
son's easy 58-18 victory. 

Co-captain Neil Devaney and 
star diver Bob Reeves have re- 
turned to the team after being 
incapacitated with illness and in- 
jury, respectively. With these men 
not at peak form, Muir feels the 
Ephmen may have trouble with 
a Bowdoin team that beat Am- 
herst, 50-36, taking eight first 


Probable swimmers for each 
event are: Allen, Coughlin (220

Varsity Squash Team 
Meets Tigers, Navy 

The Eph varsity squash team, 
sporting a winning 3-1 record, be- 
gan a challenging two-day tour 
yesterday afternoon when they 
met the powerful Princeton nine. 
Today they meet Navy. 

The Tigers, undefeated after 
three matches, are led by Steve 
Vehslage, the country's No. 1 rank- 
ed intercollegiate squash player. 
Jimmy Zug, their second man, was 
the top United States junior last 
year as a freshman. 

NAVY 4-2 

The tough Navy squad is led by 
a junior, Burn, at the top spot. 
Their second player is Davy Low- 
ry, a local Williamstown boy who 
first picked up squash under the 
tutelage of Eph coach Chaffee. 
The Middies, ranked first in the 
country last season, have lost two 
of their first six matclies, to Har- 
vard, 8-1, and to Princeton, 6-3. 

Coach Chaffee expects two hard 
battles on away courts. The Eph 
lineup has been juggled with Jeff 
Shulman moving up to the No. 4 
spot and Freddy Kasten moving 
to No. 8.

A strong Deertield hockey team 
came from behind in a third per-

3-3 in one of the best games seen 
on home ice in quite a while. The 
undefeated Ephs were nabbed in 
the last period after having play-

hockey for two periods. The third 
period ended in a 3-3 tie and a five 
minute sudden-death overtime

Bill Carter in the breaststroke. His 
time was 1:14.4. Dick Holme took

Lawyer Ernst Conducts 'Telethon', 
States Opinions On Various Topics 

"If I'm bored, I'll quil," .stated 
lawyer Morri.s Ei-nst, Williams '09. 
as he opened hi.s "Telethon" on 
Monday evening in Jesup Hall. 
"We'll keep KoinK a.s lonK as its 
fun and exciting . . . I'm trying an 
experiment,'' he said and then 
opened the floor to que.stions. 

The first queries came on the 
i.ssue of Population and Birth Con- 
trol. Because of a growing number 
of people, he said, "We're finished 
with beauty; we have swapped it 
for drinking water and food and 
clothing." He sees hope in the 
country of Columbia, where "there 
is the most important demonstra- 
tion for the creation of wealth, 
bar none — the teaching of liter- 
acy, to adults, by radio." 

Ernst touched on many aspects 
of birth control. About the Catho- 
lic Church he said, "It i.s not mon- 
olithic in censorship, but a great 
body of public opinion for which 
I have the greatest respect. In my 
cases, what I have done is to ap- 
proach them with good will and 
try to find a division among 

Then Ernst waxed idealistic. 
"My dream", he stated, "Is a plan 
to run from 1960 to 2000. a short- 
er period than Marx's, during 
which lucky countries help those 
less lucky with two hundred bil- 
lion dollars in aid. Our country's 
in trouble; we have no dream and 
are worried we're second-class cit- 
izens of the world. We have the 
resources, but not the zeal." 

Claiming "Nothing makes his- 
tory as well as dreams," the opin- 
ionated Ernst made forthright 
comments on the various questions 
brought up by his audience. About 
the administration he quipped: 
"You don't need money if you 
have ideas; unfortunately Mr. Dul- 
les fired all the sociologists in the 
State Department." About sex he 
said: "I'm in favor of the rhythm 
method, of people not having more 
children than they can adequate- 
ly bring up." About committees 
he stated: "I'm against the com- 
mittee concept. I don't think a 
goal or dream can be the product 
of compromise." 

Speaking on current politics: "I 
am in favor of Hubert Humphrey." 
As a New Dealer when Roosevelt 
threatened to pack the Supreme 
Court: "I was, am, impatient; the 
threat worked!" As an amateur 
sociologist: "We're engaged in a 

Spencer To Present 
Lecture On Geometry 

The third of the spring series 
of faculty lectures will be present- 
ed on Thursday at 4:30 in 111 
Biology by Associate Professor G. 
L. Spencer, II. of the Mathema- 
tics Department. 

Spencer's talk, entitled "Ruler 
and Protractor Geometry," will be 
concerned with the new method 
of teaching mathematics present- 
ly under study by the School 
Mathematics Study Group, of 
which Professor D. E. Richmond, 
the head of the Department of 
Mathematics, is a member. 

The SMSG feels that the •way 
in which courses in plane and 
solid geometry are now taught is 
defective in several areas, and 
they have attempted to advance 
a system which, they feel, will 
correct these deficiencies. 

First the new system is to be 
"more intuitive", depending on a 
"different set of axioms, a des- 
cription of spatial relationships, 
and a different way of explain- 
ing them. In the new system 
proofs win come out more direct- 
ly and with no fuzzy edges." 

Spencer will not deal with math 
itself in his lecture, but rather 
with the method of teaching It. 
The lecture will begin promptly 
at 4:30. 

mass demociatic renais.sance; this 
shifting from watching to parti- 
cipation reduces the aggressive- 
ness of man." 

A civil rights lawyer, Ernst has 
a strong interest in cen,sorship. De- 
ploring a deterioration of taste, 
he mentioned T. V. where "There 
arc no symbols of decency left . . . 
only on Sunday is there something 
fitting for the decent people of the 
country." Under the theory that 
the conflict of thought brings 
truth, he noted his thesis: "We 
have staked our everything on the 
idea that truth will win out in 
the marketplace of ideas." 

Panel Discusses 
* Le Misanthrope ' 

Phi Beta Kappa will pre,sent a 
symposium on Moliere's comedy 
"Le Misanthrope" tonight at 7:45 
in Griffin Hall, in preparation for 
the Vieux Colombier's performance 
of the play on Tuesday and Wed- 
nesday evenings next week. 

Profes.sor Neil Megaw and Geof- 
frey Swift '60 of the English De- 
partment and Professor Grover 
Marshall and Henry Cohen '60 of 
the French Department will com- 
pi' the panel. Dennis Mitchell 
'60 will .moderate. 

Cohen will the play as 
a work of French literature and 
as a representative work of Moli- 
ere. He will .show how it relates 
to the French theatre of the time 
and to other works by Moliere. 

Profe-ssor Marshall will give 
various interpretations of the 
principal character, Alceste, as 
they have been put forth by var- 
ious actors and critics and then 
give his own interpretation. 

Swift will discuss the play as a 
comedy of manners. He will try to 
establish its position in the tradi- 
tion of that comedy. Professor 
Megaw will discuss the play as a 
piece of theatrics. 

"Le Misanthrope" is one of the 
most popular of French comedies 
and is considered by many to be 
Moliere's finest work.

Burns Views Change 
In American Politics 

li\ Cllll' FLACK for the free world, American poli- 

In a recent article entitled, Two 
Party Statements; The Crisis in 
our Politics, in the Atlantic 

Monthly,. James M. Burns profess- 
or of political science, predicts 
American political life will change 
radically by the 1970's. He points 
to factors which arc tending to 
reduce the sectionalism and in- the nationalization of poli- 
tics. Such factors as population 
growth, urbanization, bigness of 
business, labor consolidation and 
the influence of mass media tend 
to nationalize politics.

Stefan Lorant, Famous Biographer 
To Lecture On Lincoln Thursday 



'High Table' Encourages 
Student-Faculty Relations 

A new addition to the freshman 
dining room in Baxter Hall is the 
"high table," where each night 
selected students and faculty 
members dine together. 

The proponents of the idea of 
the "high table" are Professors 
Harlan P. Hanson, James C. Hunt, 
Warren F. Ilchman, and William 
A. Little Ilchman feels that the 
"table" can "possibly help promote 
an easy flow of social conversa- 
tion between members of the fac- 

Stefan Lorant. renowned bio- 
grapher of Abraham Lincoln and 
Teddy Roo.sevelt, will lecture on 
Lincoln this Thursday. The Adel- 
phic Union sponsored talk will be- 
gin at 8:30 in Room 3. Griffin 

Mr. Lorant is well versed in his 
sub.iect. He has written three 
books on Lincoln, including Linc- 
oln, His Life In Pliotographs. and 
The Life of Abraham Lincoln. His 
particular interest in the presi- 
idents of the United States is 
heightened by his competent bio- 
graphies on Teddy Roosevelt. 

Lorant is a specialist at em- 
ploying pictures and graphic il- 
lustrations to enhance his works. 
His most recent book, a 1500 page 
biography entitled The Life and 
Times of Theodore Roosevelt, con- 
tains over 750 photos, cartoons, 
and magazine illustrations. 

Lorant is a native of Hungary. 
He came to the United States in 
1940, and now resides in Lenox, 
Mass. He has been associated with 
literature and writing since he 
first became editor of "Das Mag- 
asin" in Leipzig in 1925. 

ulty and undergraduates. 

At each dinner, three freshmen, 
two upperclassmen, and some seni- 
or members of the faculty are 
invited to dine with the professors 
who formerly ate at the bachelors' 
table in the upperclass dining 
room. During the course of the 
year all the freshmen will eventu- 
ally sit at the "high table." 

tics will witness the end of the 
cycle of Eisenhower normalcy and 
quietism. We are entering the 19- 
60's with a feeling of unrest over 
the inactive inability of govern- 
ment to keep a balance between 
the public and private sector of 
the economy. Even in the face of 
such dire threat, Democrat Burns 
can find no instance of Republi- 
can action comparable to Roose- 
velt's lend-lease program, the 
Marshall Plan or Point Four. 

According to Burns, the crisis 
that American parties face today 
is that true political power does 
not lie in the two major parties 
but rests with officeholders and 
office seekers. They achieve pol- 
itical power through their personal 
power rather than through party 
organization. Leaders are unable 
to lead because they have no force 
behind them which will support 
them and their program. Burns 
concludes his article by listing 
eight examples of how, as a nation, 
we lack control of our politics. 

In the March issue. Burns will 
review the coming presidential 
contest as a prelude to the strug- 
gle between the liberal and con- 
servative branches of the victor- 
ious party. 

Seniors, Businesses 
Fill Placement Office 

Speaking of the 1960 placement 
program. Manton Copeland '39, 
director of the Williams Place- 
ment Bureau, said "this year's re- 
sponse by both the seniors and the 
businesses represented is the best 
I have seen since coming here 
three years ago. 195 out of 250 
seniors have registered for inter- 
views, while 166 are on the active 
rolls of the Bureau." 

Copeland said that there has 
been a definite increase in job 
opportunities mainly due to the 
rapid expansion of industry and 
a return of job quotas to the pre- 
recession level. The number of re- 
cruiters now on the Williams cam- 
pus has increa.sed along with the 
swelling of the national job mar-

Noted Surgeon Calls 
Surgery 'Hard Work' 
In Pre-Med Lecture 

"Surgery is usually romanticized 
and glamorized in pre-medicine. 
In reality, it is hard work, with- 
out much drama. Surgery attracts 
'men of action', but a surgeon 
spends much of his time at bed- 
■side, meditating on what he will 
do in the operation," commented 
Dr. Charles Eckert, head of the 
Department of Surgery at Albany 
Medical College, Thursday night. 

Addressing a meeting of the 
Aesculapian Society, Eckert went 
on to outline both the history and 
present character of modern sur- 
gery. "Modern surgery dates back 
to the use of ether as an anaesthe- 
tic in the 1840's and Pasteur and 
Lister's development of antiseptic 


"There was very little speciali- 
zation until the Second World 
War, when, for instance, the tech- 
niques of neurosurgery and recon- 
struction or "plastic" surgery evol- 

He went on to note that the 
Albany Medical College Surgery 
Department is subdivided into 
general, thoracic, plastic, ortho- 
pedic, eye, ear, nose, and throat, 
and neuro-surgical specialties. 
These all share an experimental 
laboratory, "the single most Im- 
portant part of the department." 
Here are developed the new tech- 
niques-and the heart pumps and 
oxygenator-because "the operating 
room is no place to experiment 
with these things." 

After completing his talk, Dr. 
Eckert answered questions from 
the floor. In the latter context he 
emphasized that "manual dexter- 
ity is greatly overrated, surgical 
judgment is all-important."

Different world 

Several members of tiie faculty liave started a 
"hi^h table" in the freshman diiiiiij; hall for the 
piir|)ose of f^ettinj^ the Iresliinan class ac(]iiainted 
with ])ioininent members of the faculty, student 
body, and administration. It is a <;;ood idea be- 
cause all too often the freshmen tend to ret^ard 
these people as beinj^ in a totally different world. 
This is a sinj^le academic community, with only 
one essential purpose: the development of stu- 
dents of all levels, facidty and underf^raduatc. 
Closer ties between the two groujis are of jjara- 
mount importance and any steji such as this one 
must be a|j|Dlauded, The barriers which have a 
tendency to spriiij^ u|5 must be broken down in 
order to have a more complete realization of the 
Williams jiiupose. The strongest rationale for the 
small college is the idea of close contact between 
all parts of the community— an area which must 
be examined and improved at Williams. The high 
table is only a good first step, 


An opportunity 

A useful and worthwhile organization, which 
performs many luisung but nonetheless import- 
ant functions, is the Purijle Key society. Many 
students, however, tend to overlook the society 
and the services it renders because of their es- 
sentially menial nature. 

The Puri^lc Key is an honor society, but it is 
anytliing but honorary. Its members are chosen 
as the result of a rigorous competition, which 
commenced last Monday night. Selection is made 
on the basis of the com]5et's ability and the in- 
terest he has shown in terms of the amount of 
work he has |5ut into the competition ]Drogram. 
Membership usually numbers about fifteen, and 
the tasks ]ierformea by these men include show- 
ing prospective students around campus, organiz- 
ing football pep rallies and social weekends, and 
greeting visiting teams. 

For the sojihomore, membershi|5 in the Puii^le 
Key is a commendable goal. — reath 

Letters to the Editor: 

No Room 

What right has the new editorial board to 
bring to the public notice the disgustingly enthu- 
siastic activities of a small group of freshmen? 
We cannot really deplore the actions of these 
freshmen— after all, there is an old saying which 
goes: "New brooms sweep clean," But when such 

behavior can find room for discussion in a REC- 
ORD editorial, there is reason to beware. This is 
a ilangerous state of affairs. Tradition is a bind- 
ing force. Our tradition of apathy at Williams 
College is the most noble of all, because it re- 
(|uires no effort. A tide of reform would bring 
about the destruction of all that we hold precious. 

Today we have a few freshmen wanting to 
learn a bit ol philosopiiy, and some others ac- 
tually intending to do somctiiing in the College 
Coimcil, Tomorrow this may bring forth an urge 
to fix the staircase leading down to the hockcv 
rink from the Sopiiomore Quadrangle, or, on tlu' 
part of the students, to even go and watch the 
sports events. Who knows what a wave of enthu- 
siasm could end up with? 

No. Williams College— the living refutation 
of Paul Tillich— has a position to maintain. The 
record's duty is to report official events, not 
to stir u]) interest in anything. Stop criticizing the 
Walden cinema. In the name of apathy, ignore 
these upstart freshmen. There is no room for re- 
form here. Alan Keith '60 

RECORD Policy 

I was startled to read that the i^olicy of the new 
RE(X)RD editorial hoard is to "((uestion" and 
"interpret", not "crusade" and "formulate.' This 
meek doctrine is a denial of the |5roudest ele- 
ments in the journalistic tradition. To pen a few 
lines of questions and intcr]3rctations from the 
rosy vistas of Baxter Hall on Wednesdays and 
Fridays is not enough. The role of constructive 
critic demands more than censure; it demands 

Has the word "crusade" fallen into such disre- 
|3ute— something to be snickered about over a 
good beer at the "Six House"? If the RECORD 
finds itself bored with the advanced state of per- 
fection achieved by the chapel, curriculum, and 
fraternity system, 1 suggest that the editors 
woidd do well to readjust their lenses— or failing 
that, abdicate their claim to publishing a news- 
pajjer and enter into com]5etition with the Purple 

Alas gentlemen, I fear that you have come down 
with the very disease that your )5redecessors so 
assiduously tried to stamji out— ajiathy.

on some points which must be considered. We

The first was an LSU junior named ]'"rocl Gaugin. He was 
extremely popular, always ready witii a smile, fond of folk

The second missing undergraduate is William Cullen .Sigafoos, 
Oregon State freshman, who went one day last fall to a dis- 
reputable \endor named A, M, Saslnveight to buy a pack of 
Marlhoros. Mr. Sashweight did not have any Marlboros be- 
cause Marlhoros are only sold by reputable vendors. However, 
he told Sigafoos that he had another brand which was just as 
good, and Sigafoos, being but an innocent freshman, believed 

Well sir, you and I know there is no other brand as good as 
Marlboros. That fine filter, that flavorful flavor, that pleasure, 
that joy, that fulfillment- are Marlboro's and Mariboro's alone. 
All of this was quickly apparent to young Sigafoos and ho 
flew into a terrible rage. "As good as Marlboros indeed!" he 
shrieked, kicking his roommate furiously, "I am going right 
back to that mendacious Mr. Saslnveight and give him a thrash- 
ing he won't soon forget!" With that he seized his lacrosse bat 
and rushed out. 

Mr. Saslnveight heard him coming and started running. Now 
Mr. Sashweight, before he became a disreputable vendor, had 
taken numerous prizes as a cross-country runner, and he thought 
he would soon outdistance young Sigafoos. But he reckoned 
without Sigafoos's stick-to-itivcness. At last report the two 
of them had jiasscd Cleveland, Wien they reach the Atlantic 
Seaboard, bad Mr, Sashweight will get his lumps from Sigafoos, 
you may be sure, and I, for one, am glad. 

The third missing undergraduate, also named Sigafoos, is a 
Bennington soiihomore named Celeste Sigafoos and, ironically, 
she never intended to leave college at all. She was merely going 
home for Christmas on the Natchez, Mobile, and Boi,sc Rail- 
road, and during the night, alas, her upper berth slammed shut 
on her. Being a Bennington girl, she naturally did not wish to 
make an unseemly outcry, so she just kept silent. The next 
morning, alas, the railroad went bankrupt, and Miss Sigafoos 
today is lying forgotten on a siding near Valparaiso, Indiana. 
Fortunately she has plenty of Marlboros with her.

"It Is the Carnival that the 
Outing Club puts Its emphasis 
on," Hall stated, however. "It Is 
our big project, something that a 
lot of people don't realize." Work 
on the Carnival starts early in 
the fall. Interested colleges and 
prospective judges must be con- 
tacted. Manpower to get the slopes 
in shape has to be lined up; com- 
munication lines must be strung. 
This task is further complicated 
by the fact that the events are 
scattered among several sites, and 
a two day lime span. The Outing 
Club is responsible for skiing com- 
petition, and the housing, feeding, 
and care of the 90 competitors. 

On the individual level, the Out- 
ing Club is "more ready to put it- 
self out for its members than other 
organizations are." This is be- the Club depends on its 
members more, due to its infor- 
mal organization. There are also 
smaller groups within the Outing 
Club which are devoted to Moun- 
tain Climbing, Spelunking, and 
White Water Canoeing. 

One of the reasons that many 
people join the Outing Club is to 
receive PT credit for hiking, ski- 
ing and trail work. Hall feels that 
much of the success of the Out- 
ing Club is due to its advisor, 
Ralph Townsend.

osationally." Thus Robert T. Mat- 
hews, As.sistant Director of the 
AMT, described his laewly-formed 
voluntary seminar on acting tech- 

"Since under the present cur- 
riculum there is no opportunity for 
students to learn the basic tech- 
niques of the theatre, they gain 
experience only under a rehearsal- 
production basis and learn what is 
applicable to a given situation, 
seldom absorbing the general con- 

"I was approached last year by 
a group of students who desired 
such a class, even if on an inform- 
al and non-credit basis. When 
word got around, many people 
who had never shown an interest 
in the theatre before wanted to 
be included. On the basis of this I 
met with the group and gave them 
problems in an actual theatre sit- 


uation which they had to prepare. 
This enabled me to cut the class 
down to fifteen members, small 
enough to give individual atten- 

"We meet every Wednesday 
night for two hours, and, like a 
regular class, only three cuts are 
allowed. I teach no "method" of 
acting as such. My view of acting 
is that before a person can do any- 
thing on the stage, he must learn 
cartain principles of body move- 
ment and voice production. How- 
ever sensitive and understanding 
he is towards things theatrical, 
his only means of articulation is 
through the body and voice. 

"I use the word 'technique' al- 
most in defiance of the word 
'method' I define it as complete 
emotional involvement of an actor 
in his part, and practiced, or rath- 
er mal-practiced, by many to the 
complete exclusion of body and 
voice techniques. 

"This seminar is divided into 
two parts. In the first, we do ex- 
ercises to make the individual a- 
ware of the variety of expressions 
in his body and voice, relax him, 
and teach him the proper form of 
breathing used on stage. You 
could call it a combination of foot- 
ball calisthenics and dance move- 

"We then study mime, which is 
acting without words and express- 
ed solely through the body. This

is to me the purest form of act- 
ing, and in a sense close to the 
dance in its naturalistic, true-to- 
life expression. I usually play a 
short piece of music, then divide 
the class and have each group pre- 
pare a scene in mime which this 
suggests to them. Afterwards we 
discuss the merits and mistakes 
of each presentation. This is of 
prime value in teaching economy, 
eliminating one of the pitfalls of 
the novice actor who uses super- 
fluous motions which cloud rather 
than clarify the image he is pre- 

"I place much stress on the fact 
that actors must be observant. 
The group has been making life 
studies, watching some individual 
in the college or town and then 
trying to work this character into 
a scene. To do this a careful sel- 
ection of the individual's most tell- 
ing details of movement and voice 
must be employed. 


"Later on we shall be putting on 
small scenes, and if interest con- 
tinues, a public workshop to clar- 
ify our intentions and shows the 
results may be put on. We touch 
on all types of problems, but as 
our time is limited we cannot stop 
to delve deeply into each. I may 
set up a directing and scene class, 
again on a voluntary basis. 

"The term art of acting has been 
bandied about too loosely, for few 
actors have genius enough to make 
it true. I am trying to impress on 
this group that acting requires 
tremendous self-discipline and 
body and voice discipline before 
one can arrive at the sense of 
'freedom' from which good acting

we hope to begin to do our part

with this knowledge can enable 
the American theatre to rise to

Varsity Hockey Team 
Gains Narrow Victory 

Varsity hockey narrowly avert-

held off a determined Colgate ral- 
ly to cop a 5-4 victory on the Wil-

ods, the Ephs were coasting to 
their fifth victory in thirteen 
times out before sloppy play in 
their own end of the rink cost 
them three goals and almost the 

Against the stubborn netmind- 
ing of Redman Terry Connolly, 
Williams took a 1-0 first period 
lead on a screened slap shot by 
John Roe. The game appeared 
decided after quick second period 
scores by Tony Kratovil, George 
Lowe and Bill Beadie, but Colgate 

came hustling back to net their 
first goal late in the frame. 

Colgate scored two more in the 
final frame to make the score 4-3, 
although Williams dominated the 
play, but could not find the range. 
A goal by captain Jim Fisher, the 
third for the hustling second line, 
sewed up the contest at 17;55, 
Colgate's last score, with 40 sec- 
onds remaining, leaving them 
short of the tie. 

Johnny Roe was Injured in the 
second period when he twisted 
his knee. He is expected to be 
ready for action Sat. when the 
Ephs take on Amherst here in 
hopes of avenging their early 
season 10-4 drubbing at Rye. 

Princeton, Navy 
Top Eph Squash 

Over the past weekend the var- 
sity squash nine dropped from sec- 
ond to fourth in unofficial nation- 
al rankings in suffering losses to 
Princeton, 3-6, and Navy, 2-7. 

The first four Ephs lost in the 
Tiger match, with Greg Tobin 
playing beautifully against No. 1 
collegian Steve Vehslage. At No. 
5 Jeff Shulman easily overcame 
Tiger soph Jeff Kitson: 15-10, -11, 
-7. Bruce Brian chipped in a vic- 
tory, defeating Bob Seabring: 15- 
6, 15-8, 14-15, 15-10. No. 7 Steve 
Thayer contributed the third Pur- 
ple win as he topped Gordie Large: 
8-15, 15-5, 15-17, 15-4, -6. The 
match was decided in the last two 
spots. Bill Mendelson edged Eph 
Fred Kasten in the opening two 
games before winning in four: 18- 
17, 18-17, 11-15, 15-12. John Botts 
lost a squeaker at No. 9, to Bob 
Bishop: 9-15, 14-17, 15-6, 16-15, 

At Anapolis the Williams squad 
ran into the jinx which the Mid- 
dies work on their opponents. Be- 
fore rabid fans the Sailors have 
lost only twice in their history 
at home. The two Eph victors were 
Tobin, who won in four games, 
and No. 4 Pete Beckwith, who 
chalked up a onesided triumph ov-

Take Two Firsts 

Coach Plansky's crack freshman 
mile relay team garnered their 
second first of the season last Sat- 
urday night in the Boston AA 
meet. Anchorman John Osborne 
turned in a highly creditable 51.3 
second quarter. 

The team, consisting of Rick 
Ash, Joel Barber, Karl Neuse, and 
John Osborne placed third among 
thirty teams at the Millrose 
Games in Madison Square Garden 
Jan. 30 and first in the Boston 
YMCA Meet Jan. 9. Not only has 
this outstanding freshman unit 
triumphed over tough competition, 
but they have furnished their own 
transportation, board, rooms, en- 
try fees, and class cuts.

the Siena game with 22 points, 
put his deadly jump shot to good 
use as he spearheaded the Wil- 
liams offense. The scrappy, heads- 
up work of George Boynton and 
Pete Mulhausen and the fierce re- 
bounding of Lou Guzzetti and Bob 
Montgomery highlighted a vastly 
improved defense. 

The shotmaking ability of Mah- 
land led the Ephs to a 34-26 half- 
time edge. In the second half 
Williams continued its fine play, 
building up a commanding lead. 
Siena went into a desperation 
fullcourt press in the closing mo- 
ments of play, but fell four points 
short as the final buzzer sounded. 

UMass jumped off to an early 
lead and successfully held off the 
Ephs to gain a 34-26 halftime 
margin Saturday. With the begin- 
ning of the second stanza, the 
Ephs put on a whirlwind rally, 
scoring 11 points to two for their 
opponents and taking a 37-36 ad- 
vantage. This lead was short-liv- 
ed, however, as UMass once again 
took command and led by as many 
as 12. 

Clutch baskets by Bob Mont- 
gomery and Toby Schreiber in the 
final two minutes brought the 
score to 62-59 and set the stage 
for a bit of desperation strategy 
by the Ephmen. When Bob Mah- 
land was fouled with 56 seconds 
to play, he sunk the first one and 
intentionally missed the second, 
gathering in his own rebound. A 
perfect block of Mahland's jump 
shot, however, put the game on ice 
for UMass. 

Eph Ski Team Sixth 
In Dartmouth Classic 

The Williams ski team placed 
.sixth out of eight teams in the 
annual Dartmouth Carnival last 
weekend. Middlebury for the sec- 
ond straight year swept victory 
from host Dartmouth, collecting 
591.6 points to the Big Green's 
581.2. Williams tallied 502.1. 

Eph skiers did best in the Nord- 
ic events, winning fourth place in 
cross-country, fifth place in jump- 
ing, and fourth in Nordic Com- 
bined. Tom Phillips took seventh 
in the jump, the highest position 
of any Eph skier in the meet. 
Williams cross-country runners 
finished the tricky course close 
together, with Stoddard 13th, 
Phillips 14th, and Kellogg 15th. 

In the Alpine events Williams 
fared poorly scoring seventh in 
downhill and last in slalom and 
Alpine Combined.

Eph Wrestler Upset; 
Chase Stays Unbeaten 

The Williams varsity wrestlers 
suffered an upset at the hands 
of a strong squad from the Coast 
Guard Academy by a 19-10 score 
last Saturday. Outstanding for the 
Purple in the defeat was Skip 
Chase, who pinned his opponent 
to remain undefeated. 

The match was closer than the 
scores indicate as several of the 
matches were decided in the final 
seconds. Also, the Ephs were forc- 
ed to gamble since they lacked an 
uninjured heavyweight.

Panel Calls Moliere 
Complex, Perplexing 

■The main interest in Lc Mis 
iiiithrope, the most perplexing of 
Moliere's comedies, is its moral 
omplexity" stated Henry Cohen 
ilO in the opening remarks of a 
I'hi Beta Kappa symposium pre- 
ented Wednesday night in Grif- 
iin Hall. The panel also included 
Professor Grover Marshall of the 
1 rench Department, Geoffrey 
■Swift '60, and Profe.ssor Neil Meg- 
.iw of the English Department, 
:ind was intended as a prelimin- 
. ry to next week's Vieux Colom- 
liier production of the play. 

Alceste, the protagonist of the 
i)lay, is violently critical of the 
.iocial hypocrisy of 17th century 
Prance. This is in ironic contrast 
lo his love for Celimene, who is 
revealed to be insincere, and en- 
.loying her insincerity. Megaw ad- 
mitted that there is "a certain 
measure of truth in the criticism 
that the plot is slim., But even if 
the play is plotless, it's remarkable 
for having a wonderful sub-plot 
in the love of Philinte and Elian- 

Cohen, examining Le Misan- 
thrope in the context of Moliere's 
other works noted that "Alceste 
is admired for his sincerity, but 
IS made ridiculous by his mono- 
mania. But he can never be blind- 
ly duped as can Moliere's other 
central characters." 

Marshall further remarked that 
the "audience can't maintain its 
detachment from Alceste as it can 
with Moliere's other characters 
whose failings seem so easy to ov- 
ercome. The audience's associa- 
tion is much closer to that found 
in tragedies." 

"We are presented with an Ir- 
rascible man who is in love, and 
the resulting conflict provides 
much of the play's humor and 

Swift ob.served that "besides be- 
ing a social comedy and a comedy 
of manners, this is a comedy of 
character. When we laugh, we 
still admire Alceste for his in- 
sight and nobility, for comedy re- 
quires an awareness of the human 
relationship between the charac- 
ter and the audience. Le Misan- 
thrope's comic tone places Moliere 
all by himself in the history of 
comedy. It is the ultimate in cere- 
bral comedy."

Brachfeld's Booh 
Analyzes A, Gide 

Georges Brachfeld, Professor of 
Romantic Languages, recently had 
his book Andre Gide and The 
Communist Temptation published 
in Geneva. 

Tlie book essentially attempts 
to show the evolution of Gide's 
social consciousness, climaxing in 
his enthusiastic endor-sement of 
Communism. It attempts to ex- 
plain the apparent paradox of a 
man of the European grande bour- 
geoisie becoming a Communist. 

Brachfeld pointed out that 
Gide's Protestant background led 
him to feel a deep comiseration for 
people. "I have attampted to show 
that under his artistic disguise 
one may see Gide's social con- 
cern," stated Brachfeld. 

In 1927 Gide went to Africa and 
there came into direct contact 
with the colonial people; he de- 
plored the of colonalism. 
In the early '30's Gide declared 
his sympathies with the Com- 
munist party, although he never 
became a card-carrying member. 
In 1936 he visited Russia and re- 
turned lo write a scathing com- 
mentary on the 'Utopia' there. 
Gide's final attitude was a re- 
turn to the Eighteenth Century 
concept of the enlightened despot. 

Former Williams Star 
Rich Kagen '59 Joins 
Newly Formed A. F. L. 

Rich Kagan, Williams '59, has 
signed with the Boston team of 
the newly formed American Foot- 
ball League, it was announced 
February 2. 

An end, Kagan starred in foot- 
ball for Williams during his last 
three years here. Though restrict- 
ed to home games only, he formed 
an integral part of last year's 
championship team. Coach Len 
Watters describes him as "one of 
the best ends we've ever had-he 
has a remarkable pair of hands, 
is fast, quick, and possesses much 
presence of mind on the football 
field." Watters, who was consult- 
ed on Kagan's prospects by Boston 
franchise owners, feels that "Rich- 
ie will make good in the new leag- 
ue, either as an offensive end or a 
defensive half back." 

While at Williams, Kagan also 
proved to be an outstanding base- 
ball player. An infielder, he cap- 
tained the squad his senior year. 
He was a member of Chi Psi Fiat- 
ernity. the Newman Club, and 
majored in philosophy. His home 
is in Chicopee, Mass. 

19 other players signed with the 
Boston team at the same time, 
bringing the present roster up to 
31. Owners hope to obtain 70 
players in all.

H^idmer ?\an% Stronger Committees, 
Sees Possible Changes In Elections 


in formulatins^ plan.s tor the current year of CC activities, 

recently elected ))r('sitleiit I'jie W'idmer intends to make a chanj^e 

only in the realm of committee 
activities. He summed up his feel- 
ings on the importance of the 
committees by saying that "the 
CC should revolve around the 
committee system." 

The committee which Widmer 
intends to strengthen most is the 
Rules, Nominations, and Elec- 
tions Committee, which will be un- 
der the direction of Tom Fox. 
This strengthening will be in an- 
ticipation of possible revision in 
the realm of elections. 

Widmer named four other com- 
mittees as those which will play 
the most important roles. The 
first of these, the Rushing Com- 
mittee, he described as "ascend- 
ing out of the mist in the Spring- 
time, reaching its full height in 
the Fall, and retiring to oblivion 
in the Winter." The other import- 
ant committees are the Curricu- 
lum Committee, the Honor Sys- 
tem and Discipline Committee, 
and the CCF. The latter body is 
responsible for the finances of the 
CC and for delegating money to 
different extra-curricular activi- 
ties on campus. 

"Ideally those committees with 
problems to solve and business 
to enact will meet back with the 
CC". Widmer stated, and in this 
manner the CC would revolve a- 
round the work of these several 
bodies because "the Council would 
then meet only when there is com- 
mittee work to discuss." 

In reference to the method of 
choosing committee members, 
Widmer declared that "committee 
selection is now, and will remain, 
wide open." Any person who 
wants to be a member of a com- 
mittee has only to file an appli- 
cation, which will then be consid- 
ered by the CC. The committees 
consist of certain faculty mem- 
bers, some members of the CC It- 
self and those chosen from the 
list of applications. 

Excepting the field of the 
committee, Widmer feels that 
plenty of "elbow room has al- 
ready been provided" by the 1959 
Council. Specifically, the new 
rushing proposal is still to be en- 
acted next Pall, and the CC will 
still be responsible for such ac- 
tivities as finding sponsors for 
Houeparty weekends. 

Weather May 
Stop Skiing 

With a forecast for continu- 
ed warm weather and possible 
showers or thundcrshowers it 
was doubtful at press time 
that the skiing events of carni- 
val weekend would be held.

Top Juniors, Seniors 
Join Phi Beta Kappa 

Phi Beta Kappa announced the 
election to membership of nine 
seniors and thirteen juniors Tues- 
day evening. This is the first time 
that undergraduates have been 
eligible after completing only the 
first semester of their Junior year. 

Professor Jordan, president of 
the Williams Chapter of the hon- 
orary society, explained that the 
new procedure was designed to 
increase the continuity of the or- 
ganization and thus enable it to 
pursue more campus projects. 

To be eligible for membership, 
a junior must have an overall av- 
erage of eleven A's over B's and 
be in the top one-fourteenth of 
his class: A senior must have the 
same average and be in the top 
one-seventh of his class. 

Members of the Senior class el- 
ected are: Stephen Manning Heal, 
Michael Alan Coplan, John Theo- 
dore English. Jr., Howard Mich- 
ael Goodman, Marshall Arnold 
Lapidus, Stuart Blank Levy, Wil- 
liam Nathan Harrell Smith, IV., 
Louis Mordecai Terrell. Charles 
Wayne Williams. 

Newly elected members from the 
Junior class are: David Smith 
Ayres. Herbert Latimer Camp, Eric 
Hunter Davis. Edmund Perry Day, 
Jon Franklin Heiser. Fi'ederlck 
James Hodges, Jr., Hai-vey Roy 
Plonsker, Alan Noel Rachleff,

Part one: where? 

Where is the symposium? 

Last year a new idea burst forth. The Social 
Council swung into "action." The presidents a- 
ereed with the Garj^oyles. (Why shouldn't each 
house hold at least one symijosiuui a year?) 
Freshmen could become more aware— they could 
enter the fraternities for moments of cerebration. 
Half the year is past and only one symposium 
has escaped the fraternal bonds. 

There are practical problems involved. With four 
three-day symposia this semester the schedule 
could become crowded. Everybody wants to get 
the most interesting topic, and it would seem 
tliat nothing can beat out "What is truth?" for 
that position. Several symjjosia coidd monopolize 
tlie "most jiopular" faculty members. 

But what t)f purpose? The intent of the symijo- 
sium was to locate serious questioning of ideas, 
formerly confined to the classrooni and the bull 
session, at the roots of college hfe— the frater- 

No one can force individuals to think. The in- 
terest for symjiosia must come from within the 
fraternities— those that feel a need to assume a 
new and useful role. —Campbell 


The annual debacle familiarly thought of 
as Winter Carnival has never fallen on a more 
0|5portune date. The combination of Lincoln's 
Birthday and St. Valentine's Day is a tough one 
to beat. Just think, an op]3ortunity to pay hom- 
age to one of the few American saints while 
dreaming to the moods of Maltby. 

An even bigger chance presents itself on 
Sunday, and perhaps this is why the s|jonsors 
of the weekends social activity have nothing 
planned. ( Preferring, it seems, to leave that per- 
iod to the ingenious devices of Williams men). 
It is hoped that tliey will be neither too hung- 
over nor too discouraged to take full advantage of 
tlie bounty of a leajD-year Valentine. 

If handled correctly it could assume the 
proportions of a Sadie Hawkins Day with the ivy 
look. If not, Sunday will be just another day in 
Willianistown, with nothing more eventful than 
chalking uj) another Chapel credit. 


To the Editor: 

A Fresh Approach 

As wc move through these first montlis ol 
a now decade |)orlia]5s it would be well to re- 
evaluate the premises and effects of various as- 
pects of college life. The annual selection of 
Junior Advisers, now luider way, crystalizes the 
perennial Freshman Problem. In this im])()rtant 
facet of college life it seems that a system 
which has had no little success in the ]Dast has 
been institutionalized to an extent which makes 
change extremely difficult, even in the face of 
new and different college i^roblems and attitudes. 

The goal of the existing freshman social 
system is "adjustment": the means are two-f old- 
isolation from the rest of the college togethei- 
with encouragement of intense inbred loyalties, 
to the entry, the dorm, the Class. It ajipears 
that the decision to isolate freshmen was hased 
on analysis of several aspects of undergraduate 

Fraternities, it was claimed, are evil in- 
stitntit)ns, anti-intellectual at best, decadent and 
immoral at worst, from which freshmen must be 
shielded, thus preserving their virgin intellectual 
curiosity and high moral standards. The evolution 
in outlook of most undergraduates is significant 
enough to deserve a fresh approach. Most of the 
objections to fraternities have been overcome: 
total membership has been institutionalized, 
"Hell Week" is dying, house "spirit" has lost all 
vitality, and anti-intellectualism is in disrepute. 
Secondly it is clear that freshmen have not been 
isolated from ciu'iosity about and idealization of 
that "hidden fruit." 

It seems fair to say, furthermore, that the 
old charge of anti-intellectualism leveled at up- 
perclassmen can no longer he u]3held. The "so|ih- 
omore slumji " has little or no foundation in fact. 
Standards for Phi Beta Kapjia, Honors, and or- 
dinary courses get higher each year. Indeed, 
freshmen as of this year have been ]iennitted to 
attend fraternity sym]oosia in an effort "to in- 
tegrate them" with the rest of the college "on an 
intellectual level". Actually, it is the general at- 
mos]ihere of the Freshman Quad which tends to 
limit and stultify intellectual excitement. 

To fill the gap. Class "imity and si^irit" 
are encouraged. Whether this is so important 
a goal as to warrant even the gallons of beer 
consinned in is cjuest, is questionable. In any

case, Williams has already struck 
a wounding blow at the concept 
of Class by offering advanced 
placement for freshmen and en- 
couraging graduation in three 
years. Just as there Is a steady 
movement toward intellectual and 
academic integration, perhaps we 
are becoming mature enough to be 
granted a degree of social inte- 

Freshman year, It has been 
claimed, is a year for adjustment. 
Perhaps, we suggest, this is the 
wrong approach. Williams men 
are too happy, good-natured and 
satisfied as it is. Our goal begin- 
ning the first day of orientation, 
should be to disturb, not satisfy, 
to arouse, not adjust. It would not 
be disastrous if freshmen were al- 
lowed to fumble around a bit for 
themselves. Under the present ar- 
rangement, the adjusted freshman 
usually becomes the misguided 
and confuted senior. It ought to 
be vice-versa. 

A few questions might be con- 
sidered in the years to come: 
Should an advisor be a "pal", or 
perhaps a more detached senior? 
Should we really strive so hard to 
promote Class unity, dorm loyal- 
ties, entry spirit — the quad men- 
tality? What about — a radical Idea 
— intergrating completely all dor- 
mitories, mixing freshmen, sopho- 
mores, juniors and seniors, thus 
insuring in the place of closer 
Class ties, more of an overall col- 
lege approach which would leave 
more room for Individual activi- 
ty and serious academic endea- 


A Badge Of Honor 

In the course of his college car- 
eer the average Williams frater- 
nity man spends over $1000 more 
than a non-affiliate. Part of this is the badge of the fra- 
ternity. Yet few fraternity nins 
or keys are ever seen from one 
rushing period to the next. "Pin 
mates" provide a lone exception. 
To me it seems a shame that W'lU 
liams men do not take enoigh 
pride in their fraternity to v,!:ar 
the insignia of their affiliniion 
more often. When only a few do 
so, it may appear ostentati> us. 
However, when everyone does ii— 
as during rushing — wearing o;,e's 
pin is accepted. Therefore I w ,nt 
to encourage fraternity men to 
wear their pins to the all col: ge 
dance tonight and to any other 
events' in the winter 
weekend for which they deen. it 


High Table Benefits 

Two members of the facu'ty, 
Mr. Little and Dr. Ilchraan, have 
instigated in the Freshman dii,;ng 
room a High Table composed of 
various professors and student, to 
whom invitations are sent. The 
meal consists of the regular Stu- 
dent Union food. Only the higher 
level of conversation makes this 
dinner any different from the 
surrounding Freshman tables— a 
level, I might add, which is rarely 
found in most of the fraternities 
at mealtime. World problems to 
school problems, all are liable to 
get into the discussion and in 
such an informal atmosphere llie

A highlight of the outdoor ac- 
tivity of Winter Carnival Week- 
end will be the varsity hockey 
game with Anherst on the Wil- 
liams rink at 2:00 tomorrow. In 
a rivalry dating back to 1909, Wil- 
liams has won 26 contests to Am- 
herst's 17, with two ending in ties. 
In the last two years however, 
Williams has won only one of 
four games, the most recent loss 
being a 10-4 di-ubbing at Rye, 
New York in December. The Mc- 
Cormickmen will be out to avenge 
three straight losses to Amherst 
and improve on their mediocre 
5-8 season's record. 

The performance of center 
Laurie Hawkins, school scoring 
record holder, is perhaps the key 
point in the Williams attack. 
Hawkins, again leading the team 
with 15 goals and 4 assists, and 
linemates Marc Comstock (7 goals 
—9 assists) and Pete Mario w (2 
goals— 6 assists), all held scoreless 
by Colgate last week, will be eager 
to get back in the scoring columns. 

The Eph defense will have to 
tighten up their comparatively 
loose brand of hockey, especially 
without the services of sophomore 
defenseman John Roe, injured in 
the Colgate game. Coach McCorm- 
ick will be looking for the "big 
game" from his goaltender Allen 

Williams' biggest problem all 
year putting the puck in the net is 
Amherst's greatest asset. Senior 
Bruce Hutchinson, a superlative 
skater and stickhandler, will be 
out to emulate his record of 4 
goals and 3 assists in the Rye con-

same teams a^ain this weekend at the Williams Winter Carnival. 

Coach Ralph Townsend feels that 
the team has a chance at the four- 
th position behind Middlebury, 
Dartmouth, and New Hampshire. 
Townsend is counting on a return 
to form by Bill Judson and good 
performances by Tom Phillips and 
Boots Coleman to raise the team 
from the bottom positions it held 
last week in Alpine events. 

Captain Brooks Stoddard, Tom 
Phillips, and Spike Kellogg should

Running up the highest point 
total in Western Massachusetts 
intercollegiate basketball this sea- 
on, the Eph varsity quintet ran 
roughshod over a weak Middle- 
bury squad, 105-63, in an away 
tilt Wednesday night. 

The victory moved the Ephmen 
two games above the .500 mark 
with a 9-7 record, while the losers 
are now 5-11. The contest's out- 
come was never in doubt as the 
Williams netmen jumped to an 
early lead and were never serious- 
ly challenged. The Ephs led at 
halftime, 48-32. 

Williams increased its lead with 
a 26 point third quarter and spurt- 
ed to a fine 31 point effort in the 
final stanza to break the record. 
The pi-evious sea|sonal high in 
Western Massachusetts was 103 
points by AIC. 

Hitting on a fine assortment of 
jump shots and drives, soph Bob 
Mahland tallied 10 field goals and 
a total of 24 points. This perform- 
ance moved Mahland still closer 
to Geoff Morton's season scoring 
record which he seems destined 
to break this year. Scoring from 
inside and rebounding well. Bob 
Montgomery was second high man 
for the Ephs with 18 points. Jay 
Johnston and Pete Mulhausen al- 
so hit double figures for Williams. 

The Ephmen will go gunning for 
their tenth triumph when they 
tackle MIT in an away game to- 
morrow night. The game will be 
the first cage encounter ever play- 
ed between the two schools.

real convictions of the students 
and the faculty, long stifled In 
classrooms are able to come forth. 
Only when a more intimate, a 
more free exchange of ideas be- 
tween students and faculty occurs 
will the real value of a liberal ed- 
ucation be attained. The barrier 
set up by lecture courses to this 
type of education is strong, but 
when members of the faculty are 
willing to destroy this impediment, 
to sow the seeds of a more per- 
sonal, more valuable, type of edu- 
cation, then the student body 
should be aware of it. Indeed, to 
be asked to the High Table is an 
honor, but more than that is a 
chance to come in contact, in an 
informal atmosphere, with new 
ideas, new honest convictions and 
a higher type of learning. Both 
faculty and students must bene- 
fit from such a situation. A vote 
of thanks is due to Messrs. Little 
and Ilchman and all other of the 
faculty who have taken part in 
the discussions, for making this 
opportunity available to the stu- 
dents of Williams College.

Sophomore Mike Brimmer shown pinning: his UMass opponent 

Building up iin early lead of 16-0, the Williams \arsity 
wrestling team coa.sted to a decisive victory over tlie Uiiiver.sity 
of Massachusetts on Tuesday by the score of 22-10. It was tlit" 
first victory of the season for the Ephmen against three losses. 

The most impressive perform- 
ance of the afternoon was turned 
in by Sophomore Mike Brimmer, 
who pinned his 137 pound oppon- 
ent after only 4 minutes and 31 
seconds had elapsed in the match, 
and looked very sharp in leading 
up to the pin. This was the first 
pin which Brimmer has achieved 
in his varsity career. 

Another highlight of the match 
was Skip Chase, who picked up 
his fourth victory of the season 
without defeat by outclassing 
Kietly of UMass and winning by 
a 3-0 margin. 

An injury to Bill Robertson 
forced Fran Gluck to wrestle in 
his place and resulted in a pin 
for Wallace of UMass. The only 
other Eph defeat was in the 
heavyweight class where an in- 
jury to Pete Hayes forced Wil- 
liams to default the match since 
they had no other man in that 
weight class. 

Records Set As

Neil Devaney and Terry Allen 
broke college and pool records as 
the Eph swimming team easily de-

record set only 25 hours before by 
freshman Dave Larry in the 100 
yd. butterfly. Larry was at the 
finish to congratulate Devaney, 
who bettered his 57.8 mark by .3 
of a second. Allen lowered his own 
standard in the individual medley 
by 4.5 seconds, covering the 200

Frosh Do Battle 
On Four Fronts 

A major sports weekend is on 
tap starting tonight for the fresh- 
man athletic teams, several of 
whom boast the most outstand- 
ing records in the colleges. 

The frosh hockey squad, which 
is the only unbeaten squad left 
among the winter teams, will take 
on an outstanding team from Up- 
per Canada today in what should 
one of the highlights of the ath- 
letic portion of the weekend. Other 
teams in action will be the wrest- 
lers versus Kent; the squash team 
versus Yale; and the basketball 
squad versus Worcester Academy. 
The squash match will be played 
today and the others tomorrow. 

Tobin, Buck Lead Williams Squash 
To Convincing Win Over Dartmouth 

The Ejih varsity .S(|uash team clinihcd back over tlie .5(10 
mark Wednesday with a 7-2 victory over the Dartmouth nine in 
a muke-iip contest. 

Creff Tobiii, one of the two Ephs to win in the 7-2 Williams Iti.s 
to Navy, opened strongly against 
No. 1 Indian Jack Herrick and 
won easily in three games. Marty 
Zipzer edged Johnny Bowen to 
even the match for the Big Green, 
but after that close contest Wil- 
liams swept six of seven. 

This afternoon the Purple con- 
tingent will meet Yale on the 
Williamstown courts. The Bull- 
dog's No. 1 player Is the ever-dan- 
gcious Sunny Howe, .second-rated 
collegian in the U. S. Last year 
the Yale team turned in a 6-3 
win on their New Haven courts; 
Coach Chaffee'.s teams have only 
beaten the Bulldogs twice In 
eighteen contests since 1939. 

Tomorrow the Ephs will play 
host to Army's nine. The Cadets 
have been having a mediocre sea- 
son, losing 0-9 to the national 
leader. Harvard, and barely edg- 
ing Dartmouth, 5-4. The Ephs 
will be seeking revenge for the 6-3 suffered last season.

Plumb Of Cambridge 
To Speak Thursday 

On Thursday, February 18, John 
H. Plumb will lecture on "Tlie 
Enslisli Background To the Ame- 
rican Revolution" in Jesup Hall. 
Plumb is a noted historian and an 
expert on eighteenth century Eng- 
lish history. 

Plumb wa.s an undergraduate at 
Cambridge University in Christ's 
College. While there he won an 
Ehrmann Fellowship for graduate 
study at King's College, also a part 
of Cambridge University. Plumb 
culminated his studies with a doc- 
toral thesis written under G. M. 
Trevelyan, historical giant of the 
last generation. During the second 
World War, Plumb put his know- 
ledge to use in the British Foreign 
Office. At the conclusion of the 
war he returned to Cambridge to 
teach at Christ's College. 

Currently, Plumb is in this 
country as a visiting professor of 
history at Columbia University, 
and in addition, is seeking con- 
tributors for the five volume His- 
tory of Human Society of which 
he is editor. 

Plumb writes extensively in the 
field of English Hi.story in which 
he is "one of tiie leading authori- 
ties" according to Professor Nau- 
ert of the Williams History de- 
partment. Among his works are 
England in the 18th Century, 
Chatham, Social Studies, A Trib- 
ute to Trcvelcjan, and his mag- 
num opus. Sir Robert Walpolc, one 
volume of which was published in 
1956 and the second volume of 
which is due tliis year. 

Plumb is the foreign editor 
of the magazine Horizon and col- 
laborated with Lancaster to write 
the American Heritage's Book of 
the Revolution. He also broadcasts 
the reviews of the Times of Lon- 
don and New York. 


Hanson Will Talk 
On German Epic 

Profes.sor Harlan Hanson of the 
German Department will present 
a study of tlie Nibelungenlied in a 
lecture entitled "Two Queens and 
Two Princes: 450 AD. to 1203 AD." 
to be given at 4:30 Thursday in 
the Biology building. The Nibelun- 
genlied of Germany is one of the 
great national epics and has had 
a marked influence on the modern 
world of literature and art, expec- 
ially in the music of Wagner. 

Hanson will trace the historical 
development of this tale from 450 
to 1203. When the original was 
written and by whom are ques- 
tions still to be answered. The 
first manuscript on record can be 
traced back only so far as the year 
1203. Up to this point the tale 
had survived merely by word of 
mouth and consequently had been 
modified in the process. Hanson 
will survey our knowledge and ap- 
preciation of this epic and the 
changes it underwent.

Meaningful Life In Scientific World 
Bible And The Existentialists' 

lit! .S/('ic Davis 
Reverend A. T. Mollegen spoke 
on "The Bible and tlie Existen- 
tialists" in chapel on Carnival 
Sunday morning. 

Mollegen opened his sermon by 
paying tribute to the late Albert 
Camus, "the best of the modern 
existentialists, who expressed the 
rising tide of meaninglessness, the 
utter despair, the emptiness of the 
human heart. The preacher called 
Camus "a bridge between Chris- 
tian theologians and all scientists 
who deal with man." 

"The Bible," Mollegen pointed 
out, "is affecting life here and 
now in the Twentieth Century. It 
is not in the language of meta- 

Spencer Exhibits Modern Geometry; 
Indicates Faults Of Euclidean Theory 

liij Larry Kamifid 

That "every Pho belongs to at 
least two different Gees" was 
proved conclusively by Professor 
Spencer during his lecture Thurs- 
day afternoon. 

The lecture, part of the faculty 
series, concerned the difficulties of 
Euclidean geometry and the solu- 
tions to thse difficulties developed 
by G. D. Birkhoff. According to 
Mr. Spencer, the basic shortcom- 
ings of classical geometry are, 
first, that Euclid tried to define 
everything precisely thus invol- 
ving himself in unnecessai'y com- 
plexity, and second, that he avoi- 
ded numbers entirely. 

The use of undefined concepts, 
is the first point of difference be- 
tween Birkhoff and Euclid. Birk- 
hoff works with a simple axiom 
system but arrives at Euclid's the- 
orems and corrolaries. Birkhoff 
does not extensively define his 
terms, but rather, concentrates on 
the relationships between these 

The second deviation between 
classical and modern geometry 
lies in the use of numbers. Euclid 
avoided numbers completely, al- 
lowing only a compass and un- 

Reagan Accepts Post 

Michael Reagan, lecturer in 
political science, will leave Wil- 
liams at the end of this semes- 
ter to accept a position as visit- 
ing assistant profesor of poli- 
tics at Princeton University. 

Reagan received his A. B. 
from Princeton in 1955. He was 
an instructor at Princeton for 
one year before coming to Wil- 
liams In 1956. Reagan has con- 
tributed many articles and 
book reviews for such publica- 
tions as the New Republic, the 
Nation, and Dissent. 

marked straight-edge for geome- 
trical construction. Birkhoff uses 
numbers extensively. He has, Mr. 
Spencer noted, "put an infinite 
ruler along every line . . . and has 
attached a protractor to every an- 

Mr. Spencer commented that 
the effects of Birkhoff's system on 
the study of geometry have been 
considerable. Not only does the 
simplicity of the axiom system 
tend to make geometry less ob- 
scure, but the numerical natm'e of 
these axioms tie this field to other 
fields of mathematics. 

physics: the native language is 
story language, narrative." The 
Bible is simply "the story of what 
God has done, is doing, and will 
always do ... It begins with the 
myth of the garden of Eden ... it 
answers the question of the mean- 
ing of existence — everything that 
exist depends on the divine will." 

The problem presented to mod- 
ern man is that "he's stuck on a 
cooling star by the law of gravity, 
moving around a hot star, an in- 
fintcsimal part of a great galaxy. 
What are we doing hanging out 
here over that abyss; as the Bri- 
tish say, "a most embarrassing 

He went on: "Every man, con- 
sciously or not, wages a war 
against meaninglessness, some- 
times only with the aid of alcohol 
or drugs . . . There are two polar 
answers to the question of Why: 
all order, existance, and power of 
being exists out of an accidental 
coincidence: or the living and al- 
mighty God wanted other things 
besides Himself on which to be- 
stow his love.'' 

College students, Mollegen sug- 
gested, can't have no answer to 
the question, and are too young to 
commit suicide. Turning to the 
subject of Sin, the preacher had 
this to say: "Man was made in 
God's image in that man had 
freedom, to sin or not to sin. He 
can sin and did sin. The essence 
of sin is lifting oneself up, pre- 
tending to be God, to exercise ty- 
ranny over God's creations." Mol- 

legen named Hitler as an example 
of a sinner. In existential terms, 
"The sinner builds a fictional uni- 
verse; it makes no sense unless he 
can make someone believe it. 

Mollegen concluded with a ref- 
erence to the New Testament. He 
noted that there is a head-on col- 
lision between man's trying to sit 
in God's seat and CJod coming 
down in the humility of love in 
the person of Jesus Christ. 

Mollegen is professor of New 
Testament Language and Litera- 
ture at the Protestant Episcopal 
Theological Seminary in Virginia. 

Winter Carnival was an appa- 
rent success despite the prematui'e 
touch of spring which cancelled 
the ski meet and wreaked havoc 
on the freshman snow sculpture. 

The All-College Dance marked 
the beginning of the Carnival Fi'l- 
day. Richard Maltby and his or- 
chestra were well-acclaimed by a 
very large crowd that stayed on 
till the final dance at 1 a. m. The 
Billy Clarke rock 'n roll band, 
scheduled to play in the freshman 
lounge, was unable to appear. A 
band playing at the Williams Inn 
was hired as a replacement. 

The Dizzy Gillepsie jazz concert 
in Chapin Hall on Saturday night 
played an hour beyond schedule 
for the benefit of devoted jazz 
fans who remained after the ten 
o'clock intermission. Sounds of 
jazz played out to a near stand- 
ing-room crowd during the first 
half of the concert. 

Eiglit houses and Dean Brooks 
participated in the snow sculpture 
contest despite the lack of snow. 
Beta Theta Pi took the prize with 
their Beta Dragon. 

The Carnival Queen contest at- 
tracted more entries than usual. 
Inga Bjaler, a student at Connec- 
ticut College for Women and a 
native of Sweden, received the 
Queen's crown at the jazz concert 

Phi Gamma Delta, sponsor of 
the 1960 Carnival, is the first fra- 
ternity in recent years to organize 
a social weekend. Harvey Brickley, 
chairman of the whole program, 
felt "that the fraternity is the 
ideal group to put on a houseparty 
weekend, for it can be organized 
into an efficient working force." 

Widmer Outlines Prospects For C. C; 
Importance Of Initiative Stressed 

Eric Widmer, speaking from the 
chair of the College Council for 
the first time, opened the meeting, 
monday evening, with a brief 
statement of aims and prospects. 

Widmer commented that a great 
deal had been accomplished by 
the previous council. He cited the 
Total Opportunity legislation as 
an example, but emphasized that 
this, and other work, had yet to 
be fully realized. "We must not," 
he said, "sit back and rest on past 
laurels. I don't think anyone can 
yet advance the argument that 
Williams is perfect.'' 
"In pursuing new goals the coun- 
cil should avoid becoming too ti-

mid. I don't think that we should 
worry about where we can act as 
much as past councils have." Wid- 
mer proposed, as a new area of 
activity that the council re-ex- 
amine the committee system. He 
added that it would be helpful If 
the CC members could be provided 
with a provisional agenda In ad- 
vance of the meetings. "I hope 
that, in this way, the council can 
become more of a discussion 

Widmer announced that, due to 
a constitutional restriction, Dick 
Bradley would be unable to fill the 
offices of Class president ('61) 
and vice president of the CC. 
Bradley stepped down from the

Part two: If! 

If fiateniity iiu'inbers arc iiitiMcstcd in spoiisoi- 
iiif^ symposia they can use some help. Help 
could come from those chosen to lead hy the 
(Students themselves. It hasn't-yet. 

The Social Council, as always, has tlic opportuni- 
ty to lead. But direction may more likely come 
from the Colle£;e Council. 

Many accuse our student officers of beinj^ fig- 
ureheads. It is true that incentive lor new thinjfs 
on campus seldom comes from the ranks of the 
elected. The sym]K)siuni, the new nishins^ pro- 
posal, the fledgling current affairs weekend- 
all are being animated by forces outside student 
government. Committees have repeatedly failed 
in the past because the CC took no interest be- 
yond a]i|)ointing them. Many CXJ and S(' mem- 
bers have been "student government types' ra- 
ther than student leaders. 

Tlic problem of interest is not solved. If elec- 
ted leaders ]Drove to have little enthusiasm for 
contributing to the scholastic nature of the fra- 
ternity through the symposium, student interest 
may well die as soon as it is born. 

There are many jiroblems of mechanics. One- or 
two-day symposia could be as stimulating as the 
three-day affair without as severely crowding the 
schedule. Student s]5eakers could be used ef- 
fectively along with faculty members and speak- 
ers from outside Williams. Tojiics could be re- 
lated and less general. Specificity would |)ro\ ide 
more lasting interest in the ]5rogram now that 
the novelty of the syni|)osiuni has worn off. 

The coordination of topics and the scheduling 
of programs could be handled by the Social 
Council. If that organization fails a CC com- 
mittee might work in conjunction with the SC. 

Things get done sometimes. Enthusiastic lead- 
ers emerge whether elected or not. But the sym- 
posium will be healthier if those already in a 
position to lead become representative of stu- 
dent interest which does exist and can be aroused.

with warmth and humor, by its

Today, as everyone knows, is tlic forty-sixdi aTiiiix'crs.'iry of the 
founding of Gransniire College for Women, which, as everyone 
knows, was the first Progressive Education college in the 
United States. 

Well do I recollect the tizzy in the academic world when 
GriULsniiro opened its portals! What a buzz there was, what a 
brouhaha in faculty conunon rooms, what a rattlinp; of teacni)s, 
when ]3r. Agnes Tinidd Sigafoos, first jjresidont of dransniirc, 
lifted her learned old head and announced dcfiiintly, "We will 
teach the student, not the coarse. There will he no marks, no 
exams, no requirements. This, by George, is Progressive 

Well sir, forward-looking maidens all over the country cast 
off their fetters and eame rushing to New Hampshire to enroll 
at Gransniire. Here they found freedom. They liro;i<lene(l their 
vistas. They lengthened their horizons. They nnstojiped their 
bottled personalities. They roamed the campus in togas, lead- 
ing ocelots on leashes. 

And, of course, they smoked Marlboro cigarettes. (I say, "Of 
course." Why do I say, "Of course'"? I say, "Of course" because 
it is a matter of course that anyone in search of freedom should 
naturally tiu'n to ^larlboro, for Marlboro is the smoke that sots 
the spirit soaring, that unyokes the cajjtive soul, fills the 
air with the murmur of wings. If ynu think flavor went out 
when filters came in— try Marlboro. They are sold in soft pack 
or flip-toil box wherever freedom rings.) 

But all was not Marlboro and ocelots for the girls of Grans- 
mirc. There was work and study too— not in the ordinary sense, 
to be sure, for there were no formal classes. Instead there was 
a broad approach to enlarging each girl's potentials, both mental 
and physical. 

Take, for example, the course called B,M.S. (Basic Motor 
Skills). B.M.S. was divided into L.D. (Lying Down), S.U. 
(Standing Up) and W. (Walking). Once the student had mas- 
tered L.D. and S.U., she was taught to W.— but not just to W. 
any old way! No, sir I She was taught to W. with poise, 
dignity, Ijcaring! To inculcate a sense of balance in the girl, 
she began her exercises by walking with a suitcase in cacli hand. 
(One girl, Mary Ellen Dorgenicht, got so good at it that today 
she is bell captain at the Deshler-Hilton Hotel in Columbus, 
Ohio.) ^^ 


It '^^^Gutiedt/m'^^^^'^^ ^^^Z-- 

When the girls had walking under their belts, they were 
allowed to dance. Again no formality was imposed. They were 
simply told to fling themselves about in any way their impulses 
dictated, and, believe you me, it was quite an inijircssive sight 
to see them go bomiding into the woods with their togas flying. 
(Several later joined the U.S. Forestry Service.) 

There was also a lot of finger painting and sculpture with 
coat hangers and like that, and soon the fresh wind of Progres- 
Bivism came whistling out of Gransmire to blow the ancient dust 
of pedantry off curricula everywhere, and today, thanks to the 
pioneers at Gransmire, we are all free. 

If you arc ever in New Hampshire, be sure to visit the Grans- 
mire campus. It is now a tannery. © inoo M.>shuimu

Critic Lauds Warmth, Humor Of Hart Autobiography 

Continued from Page 2, Col. 5 
success — Act One achieves dis- 

The author related his story 
with a refreshing frankness and 
candor that immediately endears 
him to the reader. The picture he 
portrays of a life without the com- 
forts and security that money can 
provide is moving and quite touch- 
ing. He malces no effort to hide 
his distaste for the squalor of the 
Bronx slums and the impetus this 
squalor provided to achieve suc- 
cess and thereby e.scape from its 
hold. He treats his reactions to 
his early life in a manner that Is 
at once interesting and genuine. 

Hart's treatment of his family 
and its effect on him is one of 
the most absorbing parts of the 
book. He draws affectionate, vivid 
portraits of his grandfather, his 
parents, his aunt, and his brother. 
Both his grandfather and his aunt 
emerge as colorful, strong-willed 
personalities who exert a great in- 
fluence on the boy. His dedication 
to the theatre derives to a great 
extent from his aunt's love of the 
drama. However, his relations with 
the other members of the family 
echo a situation in which most ad- 
olescents eventually find them- 
selves. Perhaps the book's most 
touching moments occur when 
young Moss comes to see his fami- 
ly through eyes no longer colored 
by the prejudices of childhood, 
when he understands its members 
lor the first time as human beings. 

The greater part of the boolc is 
concerned with Mr. Hart's initial 
brealcthrough into the world of 

show business. He conducts a 
guided tour through the little- 
known world of theatrical offices 
one-night stands, futile first ef- 
forts at playwriting, and the or- 
deal of social-directing at sum- 
mer camps. All formed the 
culture in which developed Moss 
Hart, stage great. The author tells 
of his early .successes and disap- 
pointments in a blithe, warm man- 
ner. His facility as a writer makes 
the stuff of his life as interesting 
as life itself. 

The golden opportunity which 
all young hopefuls eagerly await 
came for the author with the writ- 
ing of a comedy, his first depar- 
ture from attempts at serious dra- 
ma. "Once In A Lifetime ' was the 
piay that catapulted him into tlii' 
heart of Broadway life and ulti- 
mately to success. The blood, 
sweat, and tears involved in put- 
ting together a Broadway produc- 
tion form the closing scenes of tlic 
boolt. Hart communicates all of 
the anguish, hard work, and ex- 
citement involved in producing a 
play. His own position as a novice 
in the turmoil of play production 
make his revelations even more 
meaningful for the reader. The 
author takes advantagre of this 
opportunity to include much of 
his personal philosophy regarding 
the theatre, all of which he pre- 
sents in an interesting absorb- 
ing fashion. 

The high point of the closiiiH 
scenes of the book is the author'.s 
meeting and a.s.sociation with 

George S. Kaufman, the already —uc vi/ii i i a ^ic DC/«ftDr. n 
established playwright and director THE WILLIAMS RECORD J 
with whom he collaborated on I WED,, FEB- 17, 1960 

this and many succeeding plays. 
The portrait he draws of Kaufman 
is a masterpiece. Illuminated by 
years of close association, he re- 
veals the great man as a living 
human being without in any way 
detracting from his greatness. His 
monastic living conditions, his a- 
version to sentiment, his taciturn- 
ity, his tremendous ability as both 
writer and director, combine to 
form the man who was chiefly re- 
sponsible for Moss Hart's initial 

With "Once In A Lifetime," 
Hart achieved success and escaped 
at last the squalor of his origins. 
Such a happy occurrence is a per- 
fect first act conclusion: the cur- 
tain falls on "Act One." Critic's re- 
port; a smashing hit!

to be true. It is part of the rules 
of the game that if the hypothe- 
sis does not throw any other cor- 
rect hypotheses out of line it is 
assumed to be correct also. This is 
possible in physics because physi- 
cal Icnowledge and explanation 
usually come in blocks. For ex- 
ample, Newtonian physics is a 
completely self-contained, inter- 
nally consistent explanation of the 
phenomena of motion. Although it 
does not explain nuclear pheno- 
mena if stated in the classical 
form, it can be shown that a 
transposition of quantum values to 
the classical Newtonian physics 
will allow Newton's laws to re- 
tain validity on the nuclear level. 
Similarly, the explanation of par- 
ticle and nuclear phenomena came 
as a block in the last sixty years 
or so. Here, too, those theories 
that have been granted credence 
are consistent within themselves 
and in regard to each other, 

"Scientific morality? It is dif- 
ficult to formulate either an ans- 
wer or a universal scientific mor- 
ality. I can say for myself that in 
the extreme case of discovering 
something which would be a def- 
inite detriment to mankind such 
as a horrible bacterium, I would 
sit on the discovery. However, my 
own field of research does not 
present such possibilities. Inves- 
tigating science is like owning a 
car. Every time you drive a car, 
you risk killing someone. On the 
other hand, a car is a great con- 
venience, and you take the risk 
for the benefits a car will provide. 
In science we risk the use of our 
discoveries for evil purpose in or- 
der to provide the conveniences 
and knowledge that investigation 
yields. After all, it can be hoped 
that science will not be used for 
the destruction of human life.

Diz: Zany, Elusive, Worldly 


Diplomatic, elusive, and perpe- 
tually clowning, Dizzy Gillespie Is 
one of the hardest men with 
whom to conduct an intelligible 
interview. After his Saturday night 
concert in Chapin Hall, one of a 
series of one-niKhters throuyhout 
New England, the innpish Diz a- 
greed to tape an exclusive inter- 
view for the RECORD. 

As usual, Diz consented eagerly, 
talking freely and forever testing 
his wit. He never committed him- 
self to saying anything which 
could provoke controversy. 

Cold, hungry, and weary after 
traveling most of the afternoon in 
a Volkswagen bus with a broken 
heater, the group was in its usual 
form. "Everyone was real nice to 
us," Gillespie kept repeating while 
gently packing his oddly shaped 
trumpet in its case after the show. 
Everything worked for Diz: old 
Gillespie concert tricks, borrowed 
jokes, shuffling choreographic ef- 
forts, and all of those zany, spon- 
taneous acts which make Diz the 
showman he is. 

A great many people went away 
from the concert convinced that 
Dizzy was under the influence of 
the "Houseparty stimulant" or 
"juiced" in Diz's terms. Juiced or 
not, that was Diz — the Diz that 
has provoked all of the legends 
and wild publicity. 

Perhaps one can best get a view 
of Diz through his responses in 
an interview designed to look at 
him from many different angles. 
Diz's comments in this pseudo 
"Thought-Association" test were 
spontaneous, terse, witty, and very 

Newport: "They need a change." 

Art Farmer: "Magnificent!" 
One Nighters: "A necessary evil" 

Big Bands: "I HOPE . . . I hope, 
I hope, I hope, I hope ..." 

Ivy League Suits: (After exam- 
ining the interviewer) "Love 'em" 

Payola: (A particularly unflat- 
tering noise) "Phhhhhhhhlllllttt." 

Dave Brubeck: "Very sincere" 

Dixieland: "S'accordin' to who's 
playin' it." 

Faubus: (pause) "WHO?" 

Future of Jazz: "On, and on, 
and on, and on, and on, and on."

Miles Davis "Likewise."

With checks and neck swelled, Dizzy Gillespie leads the way dur-

Europe: "(Smooching noise) ...

Gil Evans: "Likewise." 

Bartok: "Not for me — with 

Classical Music as a whole: 
"Couldn't speak of classical music

Space Race: "We'd better hurry 
up and catch up." 

Best Jazz Composer: "Duke El- 

Best Arranger: "Likewise." 

Gerry Mulligan: "All right." 

Tranquilizers: "Tranquilizers?. . 
Well I haven't got on them yet." 

Williamstown: "I love it. You 
see I was here before when I was 
up at Lenox at the Jazz School. I 
came up here to visit this old, old, 
old ... How old is this college? 
(After being told) Founded in 
1793, eh? Well they should be hip 
by now, don't you think?" 

"Thanks for your time and in- 
terview Dizzy, I know you're anx- 
ious to get something to eat, and 
to get some sleep, and I'm sorry 
that I detained you." 

"Now wait a minute, don't go 
away. Let's play the tape. I want 
to hear it." 

And Diz goes on and on and on 
and on and on. . . 

The Williamstown News is now 
in its seventeenth week of publi- 
cation. It published its first news- 
paper on October 29, 1959. Since 
this issue the paper, published 
once a week, has become more 
popular and its circulation has 
constantly expanded. 

Ed Smith, the editor of the pa- 
per, when asked how the paper 
was developing responded enthu- 
siastically "We're tickled pink. 
The reaction of Williamstown to 
the paper bears out everything we 
anticipated before deciding to 
come here. The Williamstown 
merchants are advertising and the 
townspeople are subscribing re- 

Mr. Smith stated that "the pre- 
sent numerical circulation is not 
definite at the moment. We are 
still in the process of advertising 
and soliciting subscriptions and 

consequently the figure fluctuites 
rapidly from week to week. I're- 
sently, the average rate of mb- 
scription is 40 per cent or for ev- 
ery five people contacted by our 
salesmen, including the Junior and 
Senior Classes of the Williaiis- 
town High School who have \'o\. 
untarily been helping us, two peo- 
ple have agreed to subscribe.'' 

"In the future. Smith coiin- 
ued, "we plan to add many new 
features. Our permanent staff viU 
be established in a few moi' hs, 
and we are constantly lookin; for 
ways to improve the paper. 

Two features that appear in 
the paper at present were i ted 
by Mr. Smith to be "extreL',ely 
popular." One of these is a < ol-

Lorant, Lincoln Biographer, Views 
16th President's Amatory Exploits 

Noting the proximity of Lin- 
coln's birthday, Valentine's day. 
and Williams Winter Housepar- 
ties, Stefan Lorant, renowned bi- 
ographer of our 16th president, 
considered all three in a talk en- 
titled "Lincoln As a Lover." He 
spoke before a capacity crowd at 
Griffin Hall Thursday. Quoting 
from diaries and letters and ad- 
ding humorous anecdotes and 
legends, Lorant succeeded hi pre- 
senting authoritatively and im- 
aginatively an "off-beat" aspect 
of Lincoln's life. 

Lorant characterized Abraham 
Lincoln as a "solitary kind of lov- 
er," having a deep binding affec- 
tion for only one woman in his 
life, Mary Todd. She was the 
daughter of a well-to-do southern 
lawyer — a woman contemporaries 
called "hell-cat," "the female 
wildcat of the age," and "a tooth- 
ache that kept one awake day and 
night." Lorant insisted contrarily, 
"She looms as the most maligned 
woman in American history,'' "a 
woman with a deep and tragic 

Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln met at a 
ball in 1838 celebrating the shift- 
ing of the Illinois state capitol 
from Vandalia to Springfield. 
Mary Todd was "pretty though 
she could not be described beau- 
tiful," Lorant said. The lanky Lin- 
coln approached her "Miss Todd, 
I want to dance with you the 
worst way." Mary Todd commen- 
ted later, "He certainly did." 

With the passage of the winter 
months their relationship deepen- 
ed, and Mary Todd determined to 
marry him despite objections from 
her sisters and friends. But Lin- 
coln, filled with premonitions of 
bondage, fell into a melancholy 
state, and after a quarrel, they 
parted on New Year's Day, 1841.

Following their separation, Lin- 
coln wrote, "I am now the most 
miserable man on earth," and 
"Love is a painful thrill, and not 
loving more painful still." It took 
over a year of anguish before Lin- 
coln decided to take the plunge, 
appeared at the Todd household 
one night, and whisked Mary off 
to the preacher. 


Stefant Lorant, a native Hunga- 
rian whose heavy Germanic ac- 
cent makes his fund of knowledge 
of American history seem strange, 
began his literary career with the 
Munich Illustrated Press. When 
Hitler came to power Lorant was 
placed in a German concentration 
camp, where he remained for 6 
months. When released, he fled to 
England, where he was persuaded 
to write a record of the injustices 
and atrocities he had witnessed 
while a prisoner. His effort, I Was 
Hitler's Prisoner, the first of its 
kind, was an immediate success. 

In London he started Picture 
Post and was an editor of the Lon- 
don Daily Express when Prime 
Minister Winston Churchill persu- 
aded him to tour America and 
lecture on his experiences in Hit- 
ler's Germany. He came to the 
United States in 1940, and after 
the war decided to remain. The 
author, a resident of Lenox, Mass., 
determined to study American his- 
tory. He collected material on 
Lincoln, and presented it to a pub- 
lisher. It was an overnight suc- 
cess, and "I became a Lincoln ex- 
pert." Lorant's list of works in- 
cludes New World, The Presiden- 
cy, and The Life and Times of 
Theodore Roosevelt. 

Upon leaving Griffin Hall, Mr. 
Lorant turned to Adelphic Union 
president, Mike Dively, whose or- 
ganizations sponsored his talk. 
Pointing to a poster announcing 
his lecture, he asked, "May I have 
this? My grand child will love it."

Team Effort Beats 
MIT Netmen, 93-36 


Montgomery takes aim as teammates hustle to cover backboard. 

hij Tohij Schreihcr 

Tlic Williams basketball team ended a week of )5iolific .scor- 

iiif^ with a 93-56 tliumpin^ of M. ]. T. at Cambridj;;c' Saturday 

night. Bob Mahland and Lou Guz- 
zetti with 22 and 16 points respec- 
tively led the attack, but everyone 
contributed in a team effort. 

A devastating Williams fast 
break combined with fierce re- 
bounding ran the score at one 
point to 85-37. Then, behind Hugh 
Morro, M. I. T. rallied briefly 
against the Eph second squad. 
Even with the first-stringers out, 
however, Williams was too strong. 
M. I. T.'s lack of rebounding 
strength and their tendency to 
take long, difficult shots resulted 
in disaster. Montgomery, Weaver, 
or Guzzetti would pick off the re- 
bound and pitch out to Boynton, 
resulting in another two points for 
the Ephmen. 

Bob Mahland has hit on 120 of 
240 field goal attempts. Prom the

Frosh leers Tie; 
Remain Unbeaten 

The Williams freshman hockey 
team battled to a thrilling 4-4 tie 
with a fast skating Upper Canada 
team last Friday night to remain 
undefeated. The sizeable crowd, 
was treated to three periods of 
penalty-free, yet surprisingly 
hard-hitting hockey. 

Tommy Roe and Gene Goodwil- 
lie shared honors for highest scor- 
er, Tommy netting 2, Gene, a goal 
and an assist. Roe's tallies brought 
his season's total to 10 goals and 
8 assists. 

Goalie Bobby Rich did another 
excellent job of holding back the 
opposition with 26 saves. Caught 
offguard by fast breaks up the 
center and tricky teamwork, the 
freshmen found tliemselves down 
2-0 midway through the first per- 
iod, but two quick Roe goals, one 
with 3 seconds remaining in the 
first period, and the other at the 
5:47 mark of the second period, 
evened the count. 

After the game, Coach McCor- 
mick was full of praise. "By hard 
work and consistent pressure, we 
have held even a team with a 
great deal more experience and

Frosh Hoopsters 
Score Ninth Win 

The Williams freshmen five 
continued their winning ways by 
defeating Worcester Academy Sat- 
urday, 64-49. The Eph win snap- 
ped a 20-game victory skein for 
the tall, well-organized Worcester 
team. The Williams record is now 

Worcester played the entire sec- 
ond half in a full-court press af- 
ter Williams outran and out-ma- 
neuvered the visitors, and man- 
aged to get a man loose under the 
basket several times. Trying to 
crack an open zone defense with 
rapid-fire passing, Worcester was 
unable in most cases to get off the 
crucial shot against the taller, 
shifting Ephmen who blocked sev- 
eral attempts. 

Dan Voorhees was the game's 
leading scorer with 25 points, fol- 
lowed by Obourn with 12, Wein- 
stock with 8, Lum and Williams 
with 7 apiece and Davis with 3. 
Fred Bredice, with 19 points, was 
high for Worcester.

Williams Varsity Squash Team Victorious Twice 
Over Weekend; Squeaks By Yale, Trounces Army 

Over this past weekend the Eph S(|uasli nine posted two victories, a 5-4 win over Yale and a 7-2 

victory over Army. 

The Eli contingent, led by Sum "Sonny Howe, 

Colgate Crushes 
Wrestlers, 26-4 

A strong Colgate wrestling 
team, which rates among the Eas- 
tern powers, crushed the Williams 
varsity before a large houseparty 
crowd on Saturday by the score of 
26-4. It was the fourth defeat in 
five outings for the Ephmen. 

Among the highpoints of the 
afternoon from a Williams point 
of view were the performances of 
Mike Brimmer and Al Oehrle. 
Brimmer put up a fine match 
against an excellent opponent and 
was edged by a slim 5-4 margin. 
Oehrle, who seems to be improv- 
ing regularly after a late start, 
tied Delong of Colgate In one of 
the best matches of the afternoon. 

In the Freshman match, the 
Ephs stopped a Kent School team 
by a decisive 22-6 count. This fol- 
lowed on the heels of their 32-0 
victory over the Springfield Boys' 
Club last Thursday. 

En route to victory, two Purple 
grapplers pinned their prep school 
adversaries to turn the match into 
a rout, as the Ephmen lost only 
two decisions. 

Ephs Scoreless 
In Amherst Tilt 

A determined, hustling Amherst 
team was not to be denied Satur- 
day afternoon, when the Jeff for- 
ces continued their domination of 
Little Three hockey and soundly 
defeated Williams, 5-0, before a 
spirited Houseparty crowd. It was 
Amherst's fourth straight victory 
over their Berkshire foes, and it 
was a well-deserved shutout for 
senior netminder Bob Brown, who 
successfully thwarted the few 
scoring attempts the purple could 
tlirow his direction. 

There was one standout perfor- 
mance in the Williams cause, that 
of sophomore Bill Beadie, who 
played .-\mherst's high-scoring 
Bruce Hutchinson (14 goals in two 
games — MIT, Wesleyan) man-for- 
man throughout the entire game 
and held him scoreless. 

Williams played a scrappy 
game, especially the defense, who 
dealt out several sound body 
checks on unwary Amherst for- 
wards. But Amherst was not to be 
contained all afternoon, while 
Williams was. What attack the 
Eph linemen could garner was 
disorganized and fell short. 

The Jeffs scored twice in the 
first period, once on a squeaker 
from close range and again on a 
deflected 20 footer. The second — 
and the remaining three were just 
frosting on the cake.

The varsity Winter Relay team 
paced out a strong second-place 
finish in a six team field at the 
New York Athletic Club Games 
Saturday night. 

Sophomore Dave Keiffer ran 
strongly, breaking out of the pack 
to take his leg with a fifty-two 
second lead-off quarter. St. Jo- 
seph's, the eventual winner, pick- 
ed up slightly on hard running 
middlemen Jack Kroh and Harry 
Lee. Anchorman Walt Henrion, 
running for the first time this 
year, turned in a creditable ;53.5 
windup quarter. The Eph quar- 
tet's time for the one-mile relay 
was 3:33. 

The Freshman team did not 
compete this weekend. The run- 
ners go into action again on Feb- 
ruary 27th. when they will face

Mike Collyer '63, manager of 
the tourney explained the new ap-

to choose subjects dealing with 
campus issues. In previous years 
the debater had to delve into vol- 
umes in the library to debate 
world or national issues." 

The first of the four topics — 
one for each round— Is "Resol- 
ved: Williams Should Become a 
Coeducational Institution." In re-

Mead Applications 
Due February 29th 

All members of the junior class, 
regardless of major, can apply for 
the Washington Summer Intern 
Program sponsored by the George 
J. Mead Fund. Through this four- 
year old program, those students 
are selected who show promise of 
profiting most from a first-hand 
working experience in government. 

Academic performance, post- 
graduate plans and a statement 
on what the student expects to 
gain from such an experience all 
bear on the final selection. Each 
.student is expected to spend at 
least si.x weeks in Washington and 
make all arrangements for his 
work there. One or more students 
will receive a minimum grant of 
$300 while others selected are of- 
fered loan assistance from the 
Mead Revolving Fund. 

Applications are now available 
in the Student Aid Office, and 
the deadline for returning them is 
February 29. Questions about the 
program should be directed to Di- 
rector of Student Aid Henry Flynt. 

The program has been made 
possible through a gift from the 
estate of George J. Mead received 
by the college in 1951, and de- 
signed to "be used to improve the 
quality of leadership and service 
in all branches of government . . . 
by encouraging young men ... to 
enter with adequate preparation 
those fields of politics and consti- 
tutional government upon which 
must rest the future of this na- 

New Applications 

Under a system adopted this 
year by the CC, the new Rules, 
Nominations, and Elections Com- 
mittee will distribute applications 
tor appointment to the eight CC 
standing committees. All members 
of the committees will be chosen 
on the basis of these applications 
which contain spaces for the ap- 
plicants qualifications, reasons for 
interest, and ideas of pertinence 
for the committees' work, 

This system is modeled after a 
proposal made by Stu Levy '60, in 
order to allow the committees to 
fulfill their function better due to 
the presence of interested stu- 
dents on them. The applications 
will be distributed by BNE Chair- 
man Tom Fox next week at the 
SC and Freshman Council meet- 
ings. ^

WMS Elects Bolduan; 
To Seek Quality Rise 

by Richard Cappalli 

Tlii.s .slori/ is the si-coiul in a series of studies of extru-curricidar 
(leliiities at Williams. Conducted hij the members of the Record 
staff the series is an attempt to discover the function and validiti/ 
of these orf^anizations ana their 

A new executive board of 'WMS 
stepped into office last Monday. 
President Michael Bolduan, pro- 
gram-director David Ayres, tech- 
nical director Roger Chaffee and 
secretary-treasurer Art Bearon 
will now direct the college radio 
station. Upon these new officers 
will rest the responsibility of 
guiding WMS toward serving a 
useful function both to Williams 
and the surrounding community. 


Speaking candidly about 'WMS, 
Gordon Murphy '63, remarked, 
"On the whole it provides consid- 
erable entertainment for fresh- 
men and sophomores. However, 
the educational and informative 
content of its programming could 
be much improved by a more dis- 
criminating selection. More should 
be expected from a college radio 
station than what they ordinarily 
broadcast on stations like WTRY, 
but I am glad to see that they 
have made steps in the right di- 
rection," Murphy was specifically 
refering to the dramatic present- 
ations transcribed by the British 
Broadcasting System, which WMS 
broadcasts on Sunday afternoons, 
and also the fifteen minute re- 
cordings of the debates and hap- 
penings of the United Nations 
offered by the station. 

ontribution to Williams life 

Presently WMS bases its pro- 
grams mainly on musical record- 
ings, ranging from classical to 
rock n' roll. Endeavoring to pro-

for Williams, Bolduan has plans to 
tape as many college lectures as 
possible, especially the faculty 
Lectures, and to play them over 
the air. In tlie tentative stage is 
a series of panel discussion be- 
tween faculty and students which 
will cover topics of special con- 
cern to the Williams student. The 
first panel will discuss the func- 
tions and purposes of Junior Ad- 
visors. Bolduan is also going to 
extend the program of classical 
music to three hours, from 7 to 
10 p. m., and is apparently op- 
posed to what he termed the 
"trash variety of music".

J. White, Winding 
At Spring Party 

Josh White will sing, and Kai 
Winding's band will play on May 
6-8, the date set for Williams' 
spring houseparties. The sopho- 
more class, under the direction of 
president Jere Behrman, is spon- 
soring the weekend. Responsible 
for the entertainment are Larry 
Kanaga and Pete Worthman. 

Kai Winding, who now has his 
own band, will play at the All 
College Dance on Friday night. 
The renowned trombonist form- 
erly teamed with J. J. Johnson to 
lead one of the most famous of 
recent modern jazz combos. Sat- 
urday evening Josh 'White will 
sing for the school in Chapin Hall. 

A new twist for supplementary 
music will be introduced Friday 
night if Behrman and his social 
committee, can materialize their 
plans. They hope to bring in a 
number of bands from various 
colleges to compete in the Rath- 
skeller. The best performance 
would net an as yet undetermined 
prize. "The competition would 
last for most of the evening, and 
I think would be excellent for en- 
tertainment", said Behrman. Kan- 
aga and 'Worthman are working to 
turn the idea into a reality.

Maintain momentum 

111 the face of sporadic but frequently renewed 
criticism of the usefulness and efficacy of the So- 
cial Council, let it he noted that the SC does 
have a real function— the admiiiistiation of the 
Williams social system. .\s Tom Wliite snj^^ested 
in his rejjort to tlie SC Tuesday iiii^ht, tlie lej^is- 
latioii of tolal o|3portunity is l)ut the first ste|) in 
what ap|jeai'S to he a le-definitiou of the concept 
of a fraternity, and marks a statue in the manifes- 
tation of the iucreasinjf social maturity which is 
begiiiiiiug to make itself felt on campus. 

"Hell Week" appears to he withering on the vine, 
and fraternities are (gradually shuckintf the stigma 
of anti-iutellectualism. While it would he inac- 
curate to say that Williams fraternities are hot- 
beds of inteilectualism, it is encouraging to note 
the enthusiastic support of the student i)ody for 
recent fraternity-s|3onsored sym|)()sia, and the 
concern for scholaishi]3 which many national fra- 
ternity organizations are fostering on this and 
other campuses through scholarships and otlier 
forms of student aid. 

With the increasing interest in intellectual af- 
fairs has come a sense of social maturity and 
responsibility which manifested itself in this 
fall's total opportunity discussions and ultimate 

That serious |Drohlems in tlie im|)lenieiitation of 
this legislation will face the SC ne.xt fall is in- 
contestable. Their immediate |)rojcct is maintain- 
ing the moinentum of tlie move to schedule one 
or more syni|)osia this spring. 

All. however, is not so rosy as die foregoing would 
have it appear. Student leaders are needed in 
the SC, not only to administer new ideas and 
projects wiien they arise from without, but to 
offer stimulation and sup]5ort from within. Most 
students here will follow when led; the problem, 
solved all too infrequently in the recent past, is 
to find the leaders.

Give blood 

Every member of the student body has received 
a card to send home for jjarental permission to 
give blood. This is required by law if you are 
under 21. 

Peter Ferguson, a member of the class of 1960, 
recently died of a congenital heart disease. To 
defray the cost of the blood he used for trans- 
hisions, students are urged to gi\ e in his name. 
Don't just throw your card in the wasteljasket, 
send it home for permission. Most important is 
to be sure and give when the ))erniission is grant- 
ed. Last year the turnout was especially i)oor and 
the blood is badly needed.

Live Modern 

I'he ])ersistent unwillingness of the trustees 
ol this college to implement any attempts of the 
commimity at large to liberalize or modernize 
campus attitudes is an insult to students and pro- 
fessors alike. 'I'lie most recent examples of tlie 
anachronistic habits of the trustee body has been 
its refusal to take a stand against the National 
Delense Education Bill desjjite overwhelming 
undergraduate and faculty sentiment favoring 
such action. Williams has, thus, been forced to 
"mark time" while, not only its Little Three bro- 
thers, but every member of the Ivy League has 
gone on record as being o]5]5osed to the injustices 
of this bill. 

On i\hiy 18, 1958, the Williams faculty jxissed 
a resolution de|}loring "any rct|uircmcnts of a 
so-called loyalty oath by students receiving scho- 
larshi|) Funds from any source " and calling for die 
repeal ol such a re(|uireinent in the National De- 
tense Education Act. President fSaxter, in a let- 
ter to Senator Kennedy, stated that to "create 
special loyalty safeguards on the lending of fed- 
eral nioney only in the case of students smacks 
ol distrust of the educational |Drocess which great- 
ly disturbs us. " Only the ajiproxal of the Trustees 
was necessary to turn President Ba.xter's opinion 
into the official college ]50sition. Yet in the in- 
terim, our Trustees have remained conspicuously 
silent while 61 other insitutions of higher learning 
and even President Eisenhower have declared 
their o|3|iosition to this bill. This is not just. 

A college that has jjroduced two Rhodes 
and two Marshall scholars in a single year is 
looked to as a leader in academic circles. Wil- 
liams is entitled to greater freedom and co-oper- 
ation from its Trustees in order to act effectively 
in its role of leadership. We need their heliJ if 
we are to "live modern."

Thoughts on the JA 

Matthew Nimetz' rather good letter last week 
points to the central problem which undergrad- 
uates today refuse to face: the undesirable segre- 
gulion of the freshmen from the upperclussmcn 
because of rushing. 

Professor Scott as Dean of Freshmen, at- 
tempted to set u|) a system of effective junior ad- 
visers to bridge this division. These junior ad- 
\isers ha\'e been valuable to the freshmen from 
many points of view; they have failed to establish 
any real rapport with upperclassmen in general. 

First point: there are too few junior advi- 
sers known by or in contact with an individual 
freshman. The juniors act as emissaries from the 
n|5]iercla.sses; they do not lead the freshmen to 
contact with a broad range, particularly, of sen- 
iors. Thus the juniors become an elite group of

llchman Speciality - Foreign Service 

hi/ Jolin 

Warren llchman looked up over bis repp striped tic 

vast scattered pile of books and ])apers. Leaning back, the 

and C^anibridge-educated ])olitical science instructor began 

"My special academic Interests," 
he said, "are in the fields of pub- 
lic administration and recruit- 
ment Into the foreign service. I 
wrote my thesis of the latter. I 
feel that there is a certain fear 
on the part of the American pub- 
lic of governmental power, and 
that this fear should be elimina- 
ted through education." 

Speaking on the foreign ser- 
vice, llchman indicated that, 
while he favored a professional 
service, this should not complete- 
ly eliminate good political ap- 
pointments, since a strictly career 
service tends to become inbred, 
and diplomatic skill can be learn- 
ed outside of the diplomatic ser- 
vice. He cited Amory Houghton 
and John Hay Wliitney as out- 
standing political appointees. 

"I am disappointed, however, 
that America does not have a 
stronger tradition of noblisse ob- 
lige to lead more men lilce these 
into public service," he comment- 
ed, pointing out that in Britain 
the sons of the aristocracy and 
the upper middle class enter pub- 
lic service as a matter of course. 
"Perhaps this is the result of en- 
shrining capitalism to such a de- 
gree that self-interest becomes a 
virtue." "But," he said, "I am 
very impressed with the number of 
Williams undergraduates who are 
planning to enter another field 
of public service, teaching." 

On the subject of the Williams 
undergraduates llchman had this 
to say: "In terms of raw intelli- 
gence they are very impressive. A 
great problem, though, is that they 
come from such a narrow econo- 
mic background that they all hold 
extremely similar opinions. This 
often forces me to play the role of 
the devil's advocate in my class- 
es. Education in a course like pol- 
itical science must be carried on 
through discussion, in order to ar- 
rive at the best conclusion. The 
reluctance to do this is due to our 
American pragmatism, which 
tends to compartmentize educa- 
tion into categories, such as All 

an. I a 

to t.llk. 


"nobless oblige" 

the Shakespeare You Need to 

He contrasted this with 
education, in which knowledgr is 
deemed continuous, and a stuci at 
works on a subject under he 
guidance of a tutor, Icarniuf, as 
much as ho possibly can. "Wil- 
liams, he said, "is carrying thi.s on 
to a diluted degree by using ihe 
Socratic method and class dis- 
cussion rather than dependinK on 
lectures. This is dealing in ideu,s." 

One of the founders of the Iliuh 
Table, he feels that faculty and 
undergraduates should meet more 
often of social terms. "Wc are all 
students,'' he said. "althouKh 
some have been students louKer 
than others." Conversation at Ihe 
High Table, he hopes, will inlio- 
ducc many to this fact, and to the 
importance of ideas. He hopes lor 
a greater awareness, after those 
dinner meetings, of the import- 
tance of a continuing education on 
the part of all students in their 
fields of interest. 

"I think that it is a very strange 
thing that, despite its cult of 
youth, the American public does 
not take its college students .ser- 
iously. In England they are re- 
garded as the future leaders of 
the country. and Univer.sity 
thought is closely followed. Here 
they are reduced to the level of 
goldfish swallowers and phone 
booth stuffers." 

It's a puzzlement: 

When you're old enough to go to college, 
you're old enough to go out with girls. When 
you're old enough to go out with girls, who needs 
Qpllege? Oh well, there's always Coke.

Noland Stresses Challenge To SC

I)Y lill.L ANPEllSON 
"The Rushing Proposal creates 
a challenge to the Social Council 
to become the nucleus of the fra- 
ternity system," said new Social 
Cuuncil president Fred Noland 
'01 in discussinK the function and 
future of that orsanization. 

Noland was giving his views af- 
tiT outgoing president Tom White 
'CO had I'ead a report at a meet- 
ing Tuesday night in which he 
asked, "Is the Social Council ob- 

Despite the variance of their 
initial attitudes, White and No- 
land were generally in agreement 
on the status of both the Social 
Council and the fraternity system. 


White stated in his report that 
til.' Rushing Proposal indicates 
fraternities at Williams are de- 
clining "from a definite status . 
t( a club like status 

interests of affiliation with the 

"Interest today is centering on 
the preservation of 15 fraternities 
at Williams," Noland ,stated. "The 
question is whetlier the climate 
of opinion will be sufficient to 
implement the Rushing Proposal 
in the fall." 

Noland cited White's statement 
that the Social Council represents 
a framework by which the fra- 
ternities can ".so remodel the soc- 
ial organization of the system that 
the system will be self-maintain- 


"The duly of the Social Coun- 
cil," stated Noland. "is to interpret 
the attitude of students and load 
it to whei'c it will help the system 
reach a level of self-mainten- 
ance." He stressed that next year 
will lest the function of the Soci- 
al Council. If the Council assumes 
and that leadership in promoting total op- 

.siudcnt opinion is turning from . portunity, Noland feels it will a- 
t!ie sectarian interests of nation- chieve a .status it has never known 
al affiliation to the non-sectarian before. 

The Social Council can lead al 
•so on the intellectual side of fra- 
ternity life, Noland pointed out. It 
can develop projects such as Phi 
Beta Kappa's series of symposia 
presented last December. 

White admitted that the Social 
Council could become useful in 
such respects if the fraternities 
desired to it, but emphasized 
the communicational function of 
the Council. It is the means by 
which the College Council and the 
Administration pass information 
to the fraternities. 

Both While and Noland agreed 
that at the present time the Coun- 
cil is little more than an adminis- 
tralion body. White went on to 
say that it is "irrelevant" as a 
legislative body and is useful only 
to administrate and represent the 
system's autonomy.

CxWxQ Hails Le Misanthrope; 

Praises Acting, Production 

Last Tuesday night, Moiicre's Mminthropc ojjcned to a stand- 
inij; room only crowd at the Adams Memorial Tlieatie. Tlie play, 
presented by the company of the \'ieu.\ (^olonihier was extremely 
well received, and in tlie opinion of this reviewer, justly so. 

Jacques Dumesnil who portray 
ed Alceste, the misanthrope, gave 
a fine, sensitive performance 
which never failed to effect the 
difficult duality of the role: That 
is, to play the part of Alceste so 
that he appears as a comic char- 
acter, but never to let the audi- 
ence lose sight of the fact that 
what Alceste stands for, the de- 
sire to be loved sincerely by the 
one he loves, and the desire to be 
sincei-e in his relationships or not 
to have them, is a very deep, and 
in this case, a very tragic problem. 

While it must be admitted that 
Alceste carries a good portion of 
the burden of the play on his 
shoulders, the success of the whole 
would not be po.ssible without an 
extremely good performance of 
Celimene. Madeleine Delavaivre's 
Celimene is bubbly, witty, and al- 
most ingenious in its revelation of 
the false heart behind that en- 
chanting exterior. Her scenes 
with the marquises are played 
with just the right amount of 
frivolity and vivacity, and those 
with Arsinoe are tempered with 
enough venom so that we under- 
stand the woman in Celimene, but 
atso realize that when she offends, 
she does not always mean to. 

Jean-Pierre Delage for his un- 
derstanding and rather phleg- 
matic Philinte, Jacques Francois 
for his humorous and delightful- 
ly affected Oronte, Giselle Touret 
for her understandably bitter and 
vengeful Arsinoe, and Anouk Per- 
jac for her simple, innocent Eli- 
ante are all worthy of highest 


Not only was the acting excel- 
lent, but the staging and direc- 
tion were also of an extremely 
high quality. Oronte and Alceste, 
the two rivals move in two entire- 
ly different fashions, one elabor- 
ately, the other brusquely; they 
are dressed in outfits of contrast- 
ing colors, and in their general 
positioning and attitude on the 
stage well reflects the contrast be- 
tween them. 

In summation, we find almost 
no fault in the play, and we can 
do nothing but offer our highest 
praise and deepest appreciation 
to the company of the Vieux Col- 
ombier for an excellent evening of 
entertainment and education.

official rushers, although they us- 
ually don't think of themselves in 
this way. All others are suspected 
of dirty rushing, and shyness de- 
velops on both sides. 

Second point: it is not possible 
to choose junior advisers who will 
be the best junior advisers in 
terms of whatever criteria Kon 
Stegall's secret selection commit- 
tee .sets up. Nobody knows who 
will do a good job in advance; this 
is the dilemma of all selection. 
Therefore, the committee turns to 
the fraternities, who naturally 
have an interest in the problem, 
for advice. In doing this, they 
find that it is necessary to choose 
advisers from a wide range of 
houses so that they will not be 
accused of playing politics. But, 
they refuse so to compromise 
themselves as to promise that ev- 
ery house will contain one junior 
adviser. Here is a basic, uni'esol- 
ved conflict with which the com- 
mittee is apparently happy to live. 
It is caused by rushing-obviously. 

Third point: we expect too 
much from the junior adviser. He 
is expected to be exemplary of the 
sort of person Williams ought to 
produce. But no selection com- 
mittee or even any random group 
can decide who is exemplary and 
who is not. He is expected to 
br'idge the intellectual gap be- 
tween freshmen and upperclass- 
men by introducing the two groups 
and providing a meeting ground. 
But we have already seen that 
rushing malics this impossible. He 
is expected to be a Icind of ama- 
teur psychologist, or in student 
terms he is expected to be "ma- 
ture" in helping to solve problems 
of freshmen. But too often the 
adviser has not faced the prob- 
lems himself, or has so recently 
gotten over them that he is of no 

The only solution, then, is to 
choose junior advisers who are as 
good as the committee can find 
and to seek other means for ac- 
complishing the functions which 
most advisers will be unable or 
unwilling to fulfill. This is what 
most students don't consider. 

Can we alter rushing so that un- 
desirable tensions are removed? 

Can we provide adult, personal 
counseling for the freshman? 

Can we give the freshman an 
opportunity to choose the upper- 
classmen with whom he will as- 
sociate and from whom he will 
take his example? 

Can we give the junior adviser 
things to do of which all such 
persons, whoever they are, are 

Yes, if we want to.

Army hockey's version of the Lonesome end was introduced 
to Williams Wednesday, as the Cadets skated oft with a 6-4 vic- 
tory. It was one of the Ephmen's hotter efforts of the season, but 
the 2 goal margin was supjilied hy the "Lonesome Floater" who 
would sneak behind the defense 

as Williams pressed the attack 
He was personally responsible for 
2 goals on solo dashes. 


Army found Williams skating 
right with them from the onset, 
running into rugged body checks 
and plenty of hustle. The West 
Pointers finally found the range 
at the halfway mark in the period 
on a long 50 footer from the 
blue line. Williams was serving a 
penalty at the time. 

After scoring two in the second 
and two quick ones in the third 
period, the cadets were riding a- 
long on a comfortable 5-1 lead. 
Then Marc Comstock connected 
on a long slider from center ice 
and George Lowe on a hard 40 
footer from the corner. After giv- 
ing up one more goal, Williams 
closed the scoring as Comstock 
banged in a Hawkins rebound.

'63 Basketball Squad 
Tops Albany, 67-53 

Sparked by sharp-shooting 
guard Pete Obourn, the Williams 
freshman basketball squad coasted 
to an easy 67-53 win over the Al- 
bany State J. V.'s in Lasall Gym 
last Tuesday. The victory was the 
tenth of the season for the power- 
laden frosh who have suffered on- 
ly one defeat. 


In the first half the Albany 
State team played slow, deliber- 
ate ball in an attempt to solve 
the Williams zone, but were con- 
tinually stalled by the Purple de- 
fense which blocked many of their 
shots both inside and outside, and 
even though the Ephs were slight- 
ly inept on offense they left the 
court at halftime sporting a 30-21 

In the second half the Purple 
frosh took complete control of the 
game, rolling to a 55-30 lead after 
only 10 minutes had elapsed. At 
that point coach Bobby Coombs 
took out the starting five.

Annual All-star Teams In both 
basketball and hockey one week 
from today, Friday February 26. 
These teams will be chosen by the 
sports staff of the Record com- 
bined with the referees who are 
present at all contests. 
In the intramural basketball, the 
Betas and Chipsies both are un- 
beaten and seem to be threatening 
to make a runaway of the two rac- 
es. In the hockey, however, the 
races are both tight and should go 
down to the final games before 
they are decided. 

The Monday hockey league has 
two teams tied for first with 10 
points. However, the Chi Psi squad 
has won all five of its games while 
the DKE's have lost one of six 
starts. In the Tuesday league a 
thrilling battle is taking place 
with tour teams still in the run- 
ning and have lost only one game 
between them. These are the DU's, 
KA's, Phi Sig's and Alpha Belt's 
in that order.

Six Williams Contingents To Face 
Little Three Opponents Saturday 


Springfield Picked In 
Wrestling Tourney 

One hundred and seventy-six 
grapplers representing eleven New 
England colleges and Universities 
will compete in the 14th annual 
New England Wrestling Tom'na- 
ment to be here on March 4 and 5. 


Springfield College, which earli- 
er this year crushed the Williams 
team, will attempt to defend their 
title. On their showing thus far 
this season they seem to stand a 
good chance of repeating. 

Williams has always been a 
threat in the Toui-ney, having won 
three times since its conception 
In 1947. The Ephs are perrenially 
among the top three teams.

Williams Basketball Five 
To Face Amherst Today 

Seeking to gain their first vic- 
tory in Little Three play this year, 
the Williams varsity basketball 
team meets Amherst here on Sat- 
urday in the 91st meeting of these 
two traditional rivals. In their 
first Little Three contest, Williams 
blew a large lead in the final min- 
utes to loose to Wesleyan. 

Amherst has not been a consist- 
ant winner thus far this year and 
sports a record of 7 wins and 6 
losses, as compared to Williams 
record of 10 wins and 7 defeats. 
However, they have at times 
shown a strong offense and could 
pose a real problem for the Pui'ple. 

The Amherst attack is well 
rounded, with three men sharing 
in the scoring honors. These are 
center Fred Sayles, forward Char- 
lie Sommers and guard Dick Ger- 
nold. All have scored over 20 
points on occasion and are threats 
to break loose at any time. 


Little Three competition starts 
Saturday as the Williams varsity 
wrestling and squash teams jour- 
ney to Wesleyan and the varsity 
swimming team meets the Card- 
inals here. 

In wrestling Williams will be de- 
cidedly the underdog against a 
strong Wesleyan team that re- 
cently beat Amherst 15-11. Any 
chance for a share In the Little 
Three crown, will depend entire- 
ly on this match. 

Wesleyan has three sophomores 
who were New England champions 
on the freshman team last year, 
plus heavyweight Dave Alvord and 
137 pound Al Williams, wlio were 
runners up in the 1959 New Eng- 
land Championships. Coach De- 
lisser says the Ephs will be "very 

Sporting a 6-3 record against 
good opposition, the Williams 
squash team will enter Saturday's 
match a strong favorite. Wesleyan 
lost its first three players from 
last year's team through gradua- 
tion and has had some difficulty 
in filling the gap, as their 2-5 rec- 
ord indicates. 

Williams will be out to better 
their last year's 7-2 win over the 
Cardinals and to take a step to- 
wards regaining from Amherst the 
Little Three title it has held three 
out of the last four years. 

The Eph swimming team should 
have no trouble in sweeping past 
Wesleyan in quest of the eight- 
eenth consecutive Little Three 
Championship, Saturday, in the 
Laselle Pool. Williams will be af- 

ter its fourth straight win, anil its 
fifth in 7 starts this season. 

Sporting a fine 9-1 mark, the 
Eph basketball squad engages Am- 
herst at home tomorrow ni"ht. 
The Ephmen, led by high scorers 
Steve Weinstock and Dan Vdor- 
hees and speedy Pete Obomn, 
have previously topped Wesli - an 
and will be hoping to gain a - c- 
ond leg on the Little Three crovn. 

The Eph swimmers will brin : a 
3-1 mark into their meet with 
Wesleyan tomorrow afternoon. 
Led by record-breakers Dave Laiiy 
and Carrol Connard, they will be 
gunning for their initial LiMle 
Three victory. 

The squash team has suffoi d 
from inexperience in their fc a 
losing efforts this season. Led hy 
George Kilborn, Brooks Godd; d 
and Jack Leutkemeyer, the E\)u- 
men will be hoping for a peak jx r- 
formance when they journey to 
Middletown tomorrow. 

The undefeated hockey sex lit 
will engage RPI at home tomo:- 
row. Th Ehpmen, held to a tie ii.v 
Deerfield and Upper Canada Col- 
lege, are led by high-scoring Tom- 
my Roe and goalie Bob Rich.

Charles B. Hall '15, in his ten 
years as executive secretary of the 
Fund, has seen the gradual in- 
crease of total receipts from $61, 
685 to well over $300,000 and the 
growth of alumni participation 
from 30 per cent to a new high of 
57 per cent. Hall admits that "the 
cooperation this year was the very 
best I have ever seen," but adds 
that "the great success of the 
whole operation is mainly due to 
the tireless and outstanding ef- 
forts put in by the class agents 
and by the chairman and vice- 
chairman of the Fund drive, 
Stanley Phillips '17 and Michael 
Griggs '44." 

The inspired work of the class 
agents is best reflected in the new 
records set by 5,597 alumni con- 
tributing a sum of $248,930.14. 
Last year 5,185 alumni, 53.6 per 
cent of the total alumni body, 
donated $242,822.67. In an effort 
to reach those alumni who had 
not responded to the mail cam- 
paign, 30 class agents assembled 
at the Williams Club on the week- 
end of January 9-10 made 714 
toll calls, raising $10,248. 


Although the alumni coopera- 
tion reached new heights in every 
respect, participation by non-al- 
umni showed a marked decrease 
from last year. The parents divis- 
ion, comprised of 677 non-Wil- 
liams donors, gave $46,318 as com- 
pared to last year's donation of 
$49,325 from 766 parents. The

Allen Martin '60 
Gives CC Report 

At the College Council Meeting 
held Monday night at Dean 
Brooks' house former CC president 
Allen Martin '60 delivered his fin- 
al message to the Council. Also 
discussed were the freshman pro- 
posal for election reform, and the 
new application plan to be used 
this year in appointing CC com- 

President Martin's report dealt 
with the character of the stu- 
dent body at Williams, and his 
feelings concerning the areas of 
responsibility for student govern- 
ment in the Williams environ- 
ment. He stated that "the CC oc- 
cupies a curious position. It pre- 
sumes to speak for the undergrad- 
uate body, and yet a majority of 
the undergraduates evince little 
interest in student government as 

The major goal of student gov- 
ernment in such a situation he felt 
was to "attempt to approximate 
an undergraduate unity of pur- 
pose. This unity must provide some 
directive force to undergraduate 
life while not denying the Indivi- 
duals right to pay only nominal 
homage to the claims of student

Expert Discusses 
American Politics 

Maurice Ro-senblatt of Wash- 
ington, D. C, national chairman 
of the Board of Advisors of the 
National Committee for an Ef- 
fective Congress, spoke to a cap- 
acity crowd in 3 Griffin Hall Mon- 
day night on the subject, "What's 
Wrong With American Politics 
and Political Science?" 

Rcsenblatt stated that our age 
might be characterized as "the 
period when America started look- 
ing at itself and being shocked by 
what it saw in the mirror. Much 
literature has been written prov- 
ing that America is vincible, al- 
though I believe this monument 
of depre.ssion may have been over- 
done a bit.'' 

"I have arbitrarily picked a 
point for the beginning of our de- 
cline, 1950. This was the year of 
the 'great divide,' at the end of 
eight score years when our great- 
est product, the American idea, 
was on an upsurge." 

Demonstrations of political mis- 
understanding Rosenblatt cited 
were the assumption that a nation 
can "win" a war today with mili- 
tary power and that this nation 
believes that by closing a "mis- 
sile gap" it can survive. "The real 
problem is a 'purpose gap' caused 
by the country's loss of desire to 
spread its idea. 

In his field of practical politics 
he noted that "the liberals have 
defaulted: people who are in the 
political and social vanguard of 
the community let themselves and 
.society down in the latter years 
of the New Deal and have failed 
to come up with anything since. 
Another cause was, in his mind, 
the stultification of thinking by 
the McCarthy era of 1950-54. 

Rosenblatt cited NATO, the 
Marshall Plan, and the Korean 
War as examples of the few times 
that America has taken positive 
action in the Cold War. 

Hirsche To Exhibit 
French Chapel Model 
In Faculty Lecture 

Lee Hirsche of the Art Depart- 
ment will give a faculty lecture 
Thursday in Lawrence Hall to 
exhibit a model he has recently 
completed of the uniquely uncon- 
ventional pilgrim chapel of Ron- 
champ in the tiny Vosges Mount- 
ain village of Ronchamp, France. 

The building, which Hirsche be- 
lieves is "the most important 
architectural monument of the 
past ten years," was designed by 
the noted Swiss architect Le Cor- 
busier. Hirsche visited the Ron- 
champ chapel this summer while 
on a sightseeing trip in Europe. 
He had read of the building in 
numerous architectural maga- 

In order to present a true pic- 
ture of the chapel, Hirsche de- 
cided to construct a scale model 
for his lecture. "Its radical design, 
the use of different materials, and 
the type of structure make it a 
challenging project to work at," 
he commented. 

Plumb: U. S. Revolution 
Aided British Industry 

"Because tlie American Revolution j^ave impetus to the In- 
dustrial RuNolution it was utterly worthwhile." This is how Bri- 
tish historian John 11. Wuiub summed ii|) America's revolt in his 
lecture, The Hritisli Background To The American RcDolution 

Thursday night in Jesup Hall. 

"In order to understand the 
blunders and behavior of Great 
Britain during the American Rev- 
olution we must understand the 
type of society in England at the 
time," the witty Britisher began. 

"First, the population of Eng- 
land was very small, only about 
the size of present-day New York. 
Most people lived in small, isolat- 
ed villages. Communications were 
poor and roads were impossible." 
These factors made the people 
more interested in local affairs 
"than if the people of Boston 
were having a bit of a riot." 

"The small population contain- 
ed an even smaller number who 
H.ASTEDO had political power. In this way 
the handful of aristocracy control- 
led the country. 


"a bit of a riot" 

Plumb's Impressions Of American 
Education Reveal Faults, Strengths 

To an Englishman it is appall 
ing that every manual job in New 
York seems to be pe-'formed by a 
Negro or a Puerto Rican. Segre- 
gation is America's biggest social 
problem. Racial equality is not an 
easy thing. It is unfortunate that 
America is particularly vulner- 

With this comment John H. 
Plumb, noted British historian, 
began a series of comments about 
social and political life in America 
and England. Plumb is an expert 
on 18th century English history 
and has written many books deal- 
ing with that period. He received 
his education at Cambridge and 
has taught there for many years. 
Currently he is visiting professors 
at Columbia. 

"I think your education up to 
eighteen is too easy. The students 
are pampered. You are too con- 
cerned with personality and not 
enough with knowledge. America 
has too many psychologists (in 
its .school system) — you reach for 
a psychologist the way we reach 
for an aspirin. 

"On the other hand English ed- 

ucation is too specialized. Frankly, 

neither system is particularly 



"American politicians seem 
somewhat n'.iive. Perhaps they 
don't adjust themselves to inevi- 
tability with the same skill and 
elegance as politicians of other 
countries do. An important skill 
of a politician is fluidity and a 
sense of the future so that he can 
adjust himself and his country. 
Many American politicians lack 
this skill." Plumb cited John Fos- 
ter Dulles as an example of a pol- 
itician who was too inflexible. 

"Don't always think that the 
Russians are better than you," he 
continued. "They are not extraor- 
dinarily clever and it is naivite 
to think that they are." 

Plumb does not want to give 
the impression, however, that he 
has nothing but criticism for the 
United States. "America has more 
social mobility than England. In 
addition England lacks the 
warmth and hospitality of Ameri- 
cans." America, the Englishman 
concluded, "is a jolly good coun- 
try to live in." 

James Lusardi Tells Why He Chose Teaching; 
States Preferences For Small College Atmosphere 


"brave new world" 

"Why did I choose to be a 
teacher? The answer is a simple 
one. I love the material and con- 
sider it a rare privilege to be able 
to devote myself to it." These 
are the words of James P. Lusar- 
di, a second-year member of the 
English department. 
Lusardi, a blond, well-propor- 

tioned, young-looking man, con- 
tinued, "It is satisfying to be in 
touch with young people at this 
formative period in their lives. I 
always feel that if I can communi- 
cate the exhilaration I feel about 
the material, this will be the be- 
ginning of involvement on the 
part of my students." 

Lusardi is himself a product 
of the small college atmosphere, 
having attended Lafayette Col- 
lege. His undergraduate career 
can be divided into a bachelor and 
a married phase, with a two year 
stint in the Air Force separating 
the two periods. He did his gradu- 
ate work at Yale and last year 
came to Williamstown with his 
wife and their two little girls. 

Lusardi welcomes the opportu- 
nity to use the seminar method of 
teaching practiced at Williams al- 
though he realizes its limitations. 
He commented, "I enjoy using 
the Inductive method in teaching 
. . . letting the student discover 
things for himself through di- 
recting pertinent questions at him. 
You teach hard here." 

Commenting on the English 1 
course which he teaches, Lusar- 
di remarked, "English 1 Is a brave 

new world for most of the stu- 
dents. In many cases it is the 
first time that they have been 
asked not simply to run their eyes 
over literature but to read it crit- 
ically and sensitively." 

Taking this as a point of de- 
parture, Lusardi recalled the ef- 
fects of his own undergraduate 
education. "When I entered col- 
lege, I became a student, a serious 
student, for the first time in my 
life. This made all the difference 
in the world. I was unsettled in 
just the way I think a student 
should be unsettled. I began ask- 
ing questions, a lot of questions, 
and discovered that I had been 
living in a closed world out of 
which I had never attempted to 


Lusardi feels that the intellec- 
tual caliber of the Williams stu- 
dent body is generally high, but is 
somewhat disturbed by the tre- 
mendous competition for marks. 
He feels that a mark is "impor- 
tant as a symbolic reward. But 
the average Williams student is 
more sensitive about marks than 
he should be. If he concerned him- 
self more with his intellectual pro- 
gress he would find that the 
marks take care of themselves.'' 


The population was getting 
richer. "Trade with the New World 
brought immense wealth to Eng- 
land and this wealth went to the 
few who already controlled the 
country. Natm-ally they were op- 
posed to any changes that would 
alter this situation." 

Plumb divided the power-posses- 
sing classes of Great Britain into 
the aristocracy, the gentry, the 
merchants and the new industrial- 
ists. Trade with America was mak- 
ing the aristocracy wealthier, so 
they opposed independence for the 
colonies. The gentry lived isolated 
lives in the country. As a result 
they knew httle about America 
and were willing to let the crown 
run foreign affairs. The merchant 
class believed very strongly in lib- 
erty but knew that American inde- 
pendence would hurt their profit- 
able trade. 

The industrial class was the on- 
ly powerful class that supported 
America. The industrialists dis- 
liked tradition because it was 
holding them back. American in- 
dependence appealed to their sense 


"The loss of America weakened 
the hold of the traditionalists and 
strengthened the position of the 
industrialists. In this way the A- 
merican Revolution helped push 
along the industrial revolution." 
For this reason even Britisher 
Plumb was glad it happened. 

Shaw's Mock Heroic 
Scheduled For AMT 

The Adams Memorial Theatre 
will present Caesar and Cleopatra 
by George Bernard Shaw on 
March 10, 11, and 12. 

Caesar and Cleopatra is Shaw's 
treatment of the Hero, as he sees 
him, said Mathews. One of his 
main themes is that heroes are 
not heroic all the time. Shaw takes 
the bases of a hero and shows him 
often in a ridiculous light. Comedy 
then arises from the actions of the 
unheroic hero. Caesar and Cleo- 
patra are portrayed as two or- 
dinary people who achieved some 
historical notoriety. 

The play has a cast of 28. Play- 
fair will act the role of Caesar, 
Mrs. Playfalr the role of Cleo- 
patra. Richard Wilhlte '60 will 
play Rufuis and John Campbell 
'62 Britannus. Other cast members 
are Jan Berlage '63 as Theodotus, 
Scott Mohr '62 as Lucius Septi- 
mus, Goran Ennerfelt as ApoUo- 
dorus, and Toby Smith '60 as Bel- 
zanor. Mathews will direct. 

The AMT production will use 
Shaw's "alternative to the pro- 
logue" Instead of the more com- 
mon long speech at the beginning. 
This variation was chosen be- 
cause it is more dramatic.

Big thinjrs seem to be happening at Amherst. 
Rugby, classified by the Amherst Sliideiit as that 
institution's "most |)0|5ular informal sport" has 
been restricted by the college. Also, at a meeting 
to exjilain the various e.\tracunicidar activities 
some se\euty freshmen showed up, compared 
with a normal turnout of over two hundred. 
The rugby team has been given a year's proba- 
tion, during which time the team will not par- 
ticipate in more tliaii five matches, bold jjractice 
games, or organize a junior varsity. The reason 
tor such action on die part of the Amherst Com- 
mittee on Intercollegiate Athletics':' Alcohol, 
It appears that following one of last year's 
matches, one of the Sabrina coaches found brok- 
en glass in one of the gym showers-the result 
of some over-zealous |5ost-match celebration. 
Drinking, the committee felt, was u bad morale 
factor for jMiblic relations and for the students. 
In a subsetpient editorial, the Student nr^ed the 
committee to reconsider its decision: "The Com- 
mittee was , , , justified in restricting the use 
of licpior by Amherst or its rivals , , , that a 
team re|)resenting Amberst ]3artieipated in an 
athletic e\ ent which \ iolated a sense of propriety 
creates a bail public image of the College and 
therefore cannot be excused , , , In view of 
the great numbers of the College community 
who want either to play the game or watch it, 
the decisions . . . seem entirely unjust."

Wheaton Symposium 



A CDuimoii response to modern art of the 
tastehil, but static mind is the belief that we have 
no j)lace to go, "The destruction of h)rm by fair- 
ies" is a mock-serious response which this sort of 
man throws out when confronted with New \'ork 
Seliool I'aintiiigs, Evergreen He\iew-type poems 
and short stories, a Walter Piston sym|)hony or 
even a Samuel Beckett play. 

The historians of the arts tell us that this 
reluctance to accept the contem|5orary has been 
a constant problem— that France of the Third 
l^epublie did not |5{jsitively res|D()nd to the Im- 
pressionists, that tiie non-flappers in the Twen- 
ties were confouiKk^d with This Side of Paradise. 
Is this easily acce|)ted truism really valid for us 
in our own time'? 

There have been changes within our life- 
times that would stagger the imagination of any 
man of the past. Most of our grandparents rode 
behind horses and read by gas lights, now we are 
shooting the moon and even sick old France has 
entered the atomic wea|5ons club. 

Whether art is the cinrent expression of a 
ei\ili/.ati()n or a precursor of what is to come is 
a moot point. For the historians are right when 
they prove that a culture's art has been indica- 
tive of its essential fabric in the past. 

So, where does that leave us in 1960':' A con- 
fusing iianorama: the New Criticism, but the jio- 
etry of Ginsburg; the vitalism of l^ollack and 
Kline, but the 16 Modern American Painters 
show in Museum of Modern Art; James Gould 
Cozzens, but Jack Kerouae. In other words, most 
of us are in aesthetic chaos. 

Our condition is either a ]irotluct of an ex 
ceedingly barren culture, or that resulting from 
an inordinately rich culture. Let us assume the 
optimistic view and then ask if the truism of con 
temporary non-a|)prtx'iation holds. This we can 
not reallv answer, for it seems clear that we are 
deep in an e.xciting transitional trench. We are 
at the same time both in an insecure void forced 
upon us by our astounding technological change 
while pressed and smothered by exciting and 
new stimulii— imprisoned by many aspects and 
freed in countless other ways. 

We are in a dynamic position, unique in 
an exciting fashion in which no generation be- 
fore ns has been uniepie. Our |5ositiou as artists 
and critics of the arts is ec(ually unicjue; confus- 
ing, yes, but wonderfully rich and compressed.

CoUoquia Investigate Particle Theory 

«y FENM'-.a MILT(>\ 
A physics colloquium on the i- 
dentification of iilomic particle 
was held in the Physics BuilciiiiK 
on Monday afternoon. This was 
the 2nd in a series of colloquia on 
particle pliysics. The coUoquia are 
held each Monday afternoon at 
4:30 in the Thompson Physics 

The speakers were three honors 
physics students, who discused 
their project in particle physics. 
Bob Garland, Kemp Randolph, 
and Steve Hall presented reports 
on the determination of tlie 
and charge of an unknown parti- 
cle. Bob Garland spoke on the 
use of nuclear emulsions in these 
iuvestiKations. Kemp Randolph 
dealt with the Wilson cloud cham- 
ber, and Steve Hall spoke on the 
bubble chamber. 

The approach in each instance 
was to pass the unknown charged 
particle Ihrouf^h matter and ob- 
.serve the effects on the charged 
particle caused by the "collision" 
of the particle with the atoms of 

the substance in the Instrument. 

In the cloud chamber, the parti- 
cle is pa.s.sed through a super sat- 
urated water vapor solution. When 
the particle hits the electrons of 
the air atoms, they are stripped 
away from their parent atoms 
causing air ions to be created. The 
water droplets make the path of 
the particle visible. 

The nuclear emulsion method 
uses silver bromide suspended in 
gelatin and the charged particle 
ionizes the silver bromide mole- 
cule and leaves a deposit of silver 
making the path of the imping- 
ing particle visible. 

In the bubble chamber, the un- 
known charged particle is passed 
Uirough super heated water caus- 
ing boiling where the particle col- 
lides with water atoms. Therefore, 
a trace of bubbles is left to mark 
the path of the unknown charged 


As the particle collides with the 
atoms of the substance it loses 
kinetic energy and is brought to 

rest. From the length of the path 
left by the particle and from the 
density of the delta rays (traces 
cau.sed by the electrons the un- 
known particle has freed along its 
path I and from the measurement 
of .scattering angles (deflections 
in the path caused by collision 
with a heavy molecule) relations 
between the charge and the mass 
of the particle can be determined 
with the use of formulas of quan- 
tum mechanics. These relation.s 
serve to identify the unknown 

These methods are extremely 
useful in the discovery of new 
particles and therefore in answer- 
ing the basic question of particle 
ph,vsics: What is matter? 

There will be 3 more coUoquia 
of this nature in the next two 
weeks. The first four of these 
coUoquia are intended to serve as 
a basic introduction to particle 
physics, with the final lecture be- 
ing given by Professor Ledermann 
of Columbia University.

year under the Bowdoin Plan. 

"The liking of sports, vi'hich is 
so typical of American society," 
was another difference Goran 
pointed out between the two edu- 
cational systems. He described 
this overemphasis on sports be- 
cause "studies are .suffering from 
it." As an example of this. Goran 
pointed out the football player 
who practices for three hours a 
day in the Fall, and who, as a 
result, "is then too tired to at- 
tend to his studies." 


"Our system is hard. At the age 
of 19 or 20, after 12 years of stu- 
dy, we take a maturity test which, 
if passed, enables one to study a- 
broad before attending a univer- 
sity in Sweden. Somehow we just 
learn more than you do. The av- 
erage Swedish carries eight or nine 
courses, as compared with your 
four or five." Goran speaks 
English, French and German flu- 
ently and some Spanish. 

"We work harder, attending six, 
seven or eight classes a day, and 
always going to school on Satur- 
day. Also, we don't feel the rush 
to get on to college. There isn't 
the economic pressure to get as 
big a slice as possible of society's 

"In comparing the two systems, 
I have a feeling that you work as 
hard in high school and college. 
But I think it is the eight years 
before high school where you seem 
to fall behind us in learning."

Cooper To Talk 
On Claude Monet 

Douglas Cooper, noted authority 
on 19th and 20th century French 
painting, will lecture on Claude 
Monet today at 8 pm in Lawrence 
Hall. "He is among the best known 
British writers in this field,'' 
stated Professor S. Lane Faison, 
chairman of the art department. 

Cooper, an Englishman who now 
lives in southern France, has writ- 
ten several books about French 
painting the past hundred years. 
He is the author of "Toulouse- 
Lautrec." "Fernand Leger," and 
"Drawings and Watercolors of 
Van Gogh." He wrote the cata- 
log of the extensive Courtauld Col- 
lection in London. 

Monet was selected as the sub- 
ject of Cooper's lecture because 
the Museum of Modern Art in 
New York City will open an ex- 
hibition of that artist this spring. 
Currently on a lecture tour of this 
country. Cooper spoke recently in 
Philadelphia at the exhibition of 
the work of Gustave Courbet, and 
will lecture again on this subject 
at the end of this month, when 
that exhibition is reopened on 
February 28th at the Museum of 
Pine Arts in Boston. 

"Cooper has the unusual com- 
bination of being a considerable 
scholar in the field of art and be- 
ing very much at home in the 
world of the art dealer," stated 

During World War II, Cooper 
served with the British Intelli- 
gence in connection with Nazi art- 
looting activities. He aided an Am- 
erican unit in these investigations.

"You educate people in such 
a way as to train them to live in 
society. We educate more with 
eyes on the fact of reading and 
academic standing rather than of 
.social standing." 

"In Sweden everyone has to get 
nine years of .schooling. The dumb 
guys las the interviewer suggest- 
ed they be called) are given a 
more practical education. The 
smart students are prepared for 
further academic study.' " 

Commenting on American gu'ls, 
Goran diplomatically stated that 
he had "not the opportunity to 
see them in close quarters, but to 
me it seems compared with Swed- 
ish girls (an unfair comparison 
it seemed to the interviewer) they 
do not care as much about their 
general appearance. They put too 
much emphasis on the face. Tlrey 
seem a little bit more superficial." 
Goran's date last weekend was 
Inga-dun Bjaler, the Williams 
Carnival Queen. 


"America is searching for a role. 
It has realized its responsibilities 
and has not yet lived up to them." 
This was Goran's feeling on Am- 
erican politics. He felt the situa- 
tion could be remedied if the 
people "are given values other 
than they have. Because the peo- 
ple have not been educated as to 
the right thing to choose in socie- 
ty-read a book or watch TV, for 
example-they choose the wrong." 
He suggests that the average A- 
merican "wake up and take life 
more seriously.'' 


Where Sfciers' Oreomi 
Come True/ 


Hanson Sees German 
Designed For Poetry 


"Why did someone otherwise 
as decent as you go into 
German?" they ask. Professor 
Harlan Hanson's answer: "I am, in 
my medium, much like the col- 
lector of paintings is in his. The 
German language, bound and 
gagged in expository prose, be- 
comes free flowing beauty in poe- 

Professor Hanson discussed the 
hardships of bein^' a Germanist 
in his Thursday afternoon facul- 
ty lecture. He claimed the ques- 
tions constantly asked him gener- 
ally run along these lines: "Is 
that a full time job?" or "Why do 
people study German?" the an- 
swer, from across the room, "Of 
course some people play the En- 
glish horn.'' He concluded, "No 
institution should have only one 
Germanist. He needs someone to 
talk to." 

In spite of all, Hanson empha- 
sized, there is something truely 
beautiful about the study of Ger- 
man. Peter Ustinov once said, 
"in seeking the truth, the Ger- 
mans add, the French subtract, 
and the English change the sub- 
ject." In this distinction. In its a- 
bility to "add'', lies the beauty of 
German. Albert Sweitzer, who 
speaks both German and French 
fluently, remarked that when he 
thinks in French the world be- 
comes a well ordered combina- 
tion of straight lines and perfect 
angles. When he thinks in Ger- 

man, it "becomes a Jungle" — wild 
and free. French, Professor Han- 
son feels, is a form of algebra and, 
thus, makes poetry superfluous. 
German, however, is designed for 

Professor Hanson attributed the 
poetic nature of the German lang- 
uage to the historic situation of 
Germany. This country has been 
divided by the four great bound- 
aries of Europe. It has been the 
frontier of the Roman Empire, 
Charlemagne's kingdom, the Re- 
formation, and the Iron Curtain. 

Thus Germany has been a na- 
tion with no tradition and no na- 
tional consciousness. Its poets, 
finding themselves "at the bottom 
of a deep well with nothing but 
the infinite universe and the 
stars overhead," have always sung 
a type of "cosmological blues." 

In the 18th and early 19th cen- 
tury. German nationalists began 
a movement to rediscover Ger- 
many's past — To make her con- 
scious of her national tradition. 
In the course of this movement, 
one of her great epic poems, "Das 
Nibelungenlied" written in the 13- 
th century, was revived. 

This poem. Professor Hanson 
feels, is a classic of its type. With- 
in its verses one can find the true 
unrealistic beauty of German poe- 
try, "It requires each reader to 
reach his own interpretation. It 
should, he concluded, be read by 
everyone so that they can be mov- 
ed according to tlie measure of 
their minds.'' 

Williams Program Affects Drive 

Continued from Page 1, Col. 1 

Started in 1919 as an annual 
fund-raising campaign, the Alum- 
ni Fund was somewhat affected 
this year by the efforts of the 
Williams Program, the current 
campaign for endowment and 
physical facilities. The Fund 
drive usually runs from the first 
of October through January, but 
was extended this year until Feb- 
ruary 15 because of a delay in 
getting started in order to devel- 
op a working agreement with the 
Williams Program, which was sub- 
sequently restricted to specific ac- 
tivities for the duration of the 
Fund drive. Gifts to the Alumni 
Fund represent a vital 10 per 

cent of the College's operating in- 

The class of 1910, by contribu- 
ting the largest amount, some 
$11,476, won the Atwell Cup after 
finishing second last year. Run- 
ner-up with $11,042 was the class 
of 1917, which had won the a- 
ward in 1958. The Wood Ti-ophy 
for participation went to Presi- 
dent Baxter's class of 1914 which 
had every one of its 93 remain- 
ing members contribute. The five 
Old Guard classes of 1886, 1892, 
1894, 1900, and 1902 also showed 
100 per cent participation, but 
they are not eligible for the prize. 
The class of 1959 set a new high 
for participation by a first-year 
alumni group. 

Clergy Visit Williams I Jeiifis/j Association Gives Chance 

For PARS Weekend; 
UN's Malik To Talk 

Twenty-five churchmen from 
throughout the world will visit 
the Williams campus, March 4-6, 
as part of a W. C. C. and Con- 
gregational Church sponsored 
PARS weekend. A chapel sermon 
by Charles Malik, of Lebanon, for- 
mer president of the United Na- 
tions, Sunday, March 6, will clim- 
ax the program. 

The visitors, chaplains and ad- 
ministrators at foreign colleges 
and universities are all one year 
students at Union Theological 
Seminary as part of the Program 
for Advanced Religious Studies

The clergy's itinerary includes 
Friday and Saturday night din- 
ners, given by the W. C. C. and 
Congregational Church, respec- 
tively; the Sunday Vespers Ser- 
vice; and a Saturday afternoon 
left open for discussion or sight- 
seeing. Tours of the campus will 
be given by Williams students. A 
panel discussion, "How the Christ- 
tian faith confronts the uni- 
versity setting throughout the 
world," will be featured following 
the W. C. C. dinner, Friday night. 

Chaplain DeBoer explained that 
the weekend should serve a dual 
purpose. "Besides being a wonder- 
ful opportunity for Williams stu- 
dents to meet and talk with these 
foreign churchmen, this weekend 
will give the visitors a chance to

This year about 26 students 
took advantage of the opportunity 
to participate in High Holiday

commented that, "from the ex-

it is desirable to have any such

doubtful if any professional wrest-

Pittsfield Boys Club and the en- 
thusiastic crowd was mostly wide- 
eyed boys ranging in ages from 
about 7 to 15. 

The whole situation resulted 
from the enthusiasm of Coach 
Peter Delisser to promote wrest- 
ling in the schools of this area, 
and to provide some entertain- 
ment for the boys of the Pittsfield 
Club and similar organizations. 

So, Thursday night, accompan- 
ied by Jack Staples, the "Black 
Devil", and Bill Penny, the "White 
Angel", snowy white (including 
powdered white hair), and ten 
members of the Williams wrestling 
team in more conventional attire, 
DeLisser set out for Pittsfield "to 
show the boys that wrestling is 
a worthwhile and satisfying 

DeLisser first demonstrated to 
the crowd of about 350 that pro- 
fessional wrestling and college 
wrestling are two entirely differ- 
ent concepts. After Staples and 
Penny were through with their 
act and DeLisser had pointed out 
the differences between their 
holds and college holds their was 
no doubt in anyone's mind that 
college and professional wrestling 
had little In common. 

After this demonstration match 
DeLisser demonstrated with four 
volunteer members of the Club 
the fundamental maneuver of the 
sit-out, and the turn-in. Then the 

HY KIT JONES boys were treated to six exhibi- 
tion matches of college wrestlintr 
performed by members of the Wil- 
liams team. 

After the planned program was 
over, Coach Delisser invited any- 
one who was interested to come 
out and receive some informal in- 
structions from the Williams 
wrestlers. The response was al- 
most total participation. 

The team's appearances may 
not result in any tremendous 
stampede to organize wrestling 
teams, but as Coach Delisser said 
that night, "it was worth it just 
to see the contented looks on the 
boys faces as the 'Black Devil' 

Champlin Defines 
Experiment's Aim 

"When the present-day youth 
grow up, they will have a more 
thorough understanding of people 
in other parts of the world," com- 
mented Art Champlin, campus re- 
presentative for the Experiment 
in International Living, on one 
of the purposes of this program. 

The Experiment, an exchange 
plan between Americans and 
Europeans, has been functioning 
for over twenty-five years. Ameri- 
cans who participate do so with- 
out organizational affiliation. A 
varying number of students from 
Williams go to Europe as part of 
the Experiment each summer. 

Americans who are selected for 
the program may visit all parts 
of Europe, Iron Curtain countries, 
Japan, India, Nigeria, and several 
other nations. The Experiment's 
activities are usually confined to 
the summer except for a group of 
adults who live abroad all twelve 
months, and a program for foreign 
students to acquaint them with 
America before the start of class- 

The program begins in the mid- 
dle of June, and ends in early 
September. Participants usually 
travel to Europe in small groups 
and separately live with a Europe- 
an family for about a month.

Ephs Down Amherst; 
'Hansen' Stars In Win 


The Williuiiis Collej^c Hasketljall team pas.scd its .stiffest 
test of the season Saturday iii^lit at tlic l.ascll Gym witli a Iiaiil- 
fouj^ht 64-53 win over Amherst. Tlie f^reatly iniproxed i>ord |etfs 
fresh from a victory over Wesley- 
an but without the services of 
standout center Fred Sayles, put 
on a determined effort tliat near- 
ly carried them to victory. 

The defensive play was close 
and hard, in sharp contrast to 
Williams' last two high-scoring 
victories over MIT and Middle- 
bury. Pete Mulhausen gave little 
ground to the high-scoring Dick 
Gernold, and Bob Montgomery 
held down jump-shooter CharUe 

The tight defense, however, re- 
sulted in sloppy ball handling and 
frequent fouls. Bob Madgic, the 
hustling Jeff guard, kept Williams 
alert with his cat-like reactions 
and furtive ball-stealing talents. 
Since Amherst outshot Williams 
from the floor, victory came from 
the Ephs skill on the foul line. 
Pete Mulhausen connected on 11 
straight and the team as a whole 
made 31 of 38 tries. 

Every game is a vital one from 
here on in for the Ephs. With the 
teams record now at 11-7, the 
team must win its remaining four 
games to win the Little Three and 
earn a berth in the NCAA Region- 
al playoffs. 

Swimmers Down 
Wesleyan Squad 

Sweeping eight of ten events, 
the Varsity swimmers cleared the 
first hurdle In their Little Three 
title defense, easily downing Wes- 
leyan, 52-34, Saturday, at the La- 
sell Pool. The Mermen, in quest of 
their eighteenth consecutive Uttle 
Three crown, brought their sea- 
son's ledger to 5 wins and 2 losses. 

Coach Bob Muir used his star 
swimmers sparingly and poured 
the entire Williams bench into the 
water during the course of the 
meet. For the first time this sea- 
son, Williams co-captains Neil 
Devaney and Buck Robinson swam 
single events, the former easily 
winning the 100 butterfly in 58.8 
seconds, and Robinson nipping 
Wesieyan's White in 2:33.2 in the 
200 yd. breastroke. 

The Williams freshman swim- 
mers easily disposed of Wesleyan, 
56-21, to gain the first round in 
their bid for the Little Three

Wesmen Cop Crown; 
Crush Eph Grapplers 

The Wesleyan Cardinals wrap- 
ped up the Little Three wrestling 
crown with a convincing 17-9 tri- 
umph over the Ephmen at Middle- 
town Saturday. 

Williams jumped to a quick 6-0 
lead as lightweights Bill Robinson 
and Stew Smith recorded victories 
by identical two point margins. 
The Wesmen's superiority in the 
higher weight classes gave them 
the victory. Skip Chase's win at 
147 was the only remaining bright 
spot for Williams as the Cardinals 
roared back to take four of the 
five final matches.

Varsity Squash Vanquishes Wesleyan 9-0; 
Frosh Lose To Deerfield, Beat Cardinals 


Over the weekend the Williams 
squash teams' downed their Little 
Three opponents from Wesleyan. 

The Varsity was convincing in 
their 9-0 victory over inexperienc- 
ed opposition. Extending their 
winning streak to three, the Ephs 
lost only two individual games 
while trouncing the Cardinals, 
who have only beaten a Williams 
team once since the teams first 
met in 1939. 

Junior Fi-eddy Kasten turned 
in the most lopsided win as he al- 
lowed Lindsey Childs but seven 
ijuints in three games. Both Bruct 
Brian and John Botts limited 
their respective opponents to less 
than twenty points. 

The Freshman contingent not- 

ched their first victory of the sea- 
son as they triumphed 8-1. 

George Kilborn, Brooks God- 

dard. Jack Leukemeyer, Lenny 
Bernheimer, Jim Sykes, and John 
Armstrong each won in the mini- 
mum of three games. Stu Brown 
and Sandy Graham were extend- 
ed to four games before winning 
their matches. Only Tony Fahn- 
stock ran into trouble as he lost 
in five games.

Over Jeffs 7S-52 

Sparked by Steve Weinstock's 
record-breaking performance, the 
Williams freshmen five gained an 
easy 78-52 vistory over the visit- 
ing Amherst frosh. Weinsiock, es- 
pecially effective with his long 
one-handed jump shot, scored an 
amazing 33 points to break the 
freshmen record of 32 points in 
one game set last year by Bob 

The visitors were effective in 
grabbing rebounds against a tall- 
er Williams team, but were unable 
to keep up with the Purple's con- 
sistent fast-break. After building 
up a good lead, the Ephmen set- 
tled back into a water-tight zone 
defense and staved off the Jeff's 
attempt to shorten the gap.

Town Votes Land For Ski Areas;

The town meeting— tliat okle

Article 25, authorizing tlie town 
;joaid of Selectmen to enter into 
he lease with the President and 
irustees of the college, drew nods 
if approval at its first reading, 
one citizen was not so agreeable 
ind voiced the opinion that the 
.ease would "tie up 41 acres of 
;ood hunting land." The ob- 
jector also cited the amount of 
additional traffic which the roads 
leading to the area would have 
lO carry. "The most undesirable 
kind of traffic,'' he stated, "col- 
lege students in cars." Another 
citizen seconded the latter criti- 
cism, saying, "Students don't think 
.slow driving is acceptable." 

The benefits were quickly point- 
ed out. The Forestry Superintend- 
cHt Robert McCarthy noted that 
the land had been given to the 
town in 1925. The college would 
develop the land as a park and 
It would serve as a "good start- 
ing point for the development of 
that land." Others stood to pro- 
claim this new development "an 

The question called, the ayes 
drowned out the dissenters and 
town moderator Lloyd S. Blair 
proclaimed the motion carried. 

Under the terms of the lease, 
Williams receives permission to 
develop the former George W. 
Walker property south of Berlin 
Road into a collegiate ski area. 
They receive a lease for a term 
of 30 years with an option to re- 
new it for further term of 30 
years, in return for which the area 
will be made available to the resi-

Discuss How Not To 
Do Musical Comedy: 
Gypsy Man Sondheim 

Stephen Sondheim. Broadway 
songwriter who wrote the lyrics 
for "West Side Story" and the cur- 
rent Ethel Merman hit, "Gypsy," 
will speak informally in the lounge 
of the Student Union, Tuesday, 
March 1 at 8 p. m. His talk is 
sponsored by the Williams Lec- 
ture Committee. 

Sondheim will discuss the gen- 
eral topic, "How Not to Write a 
Musical Comedy." In this dis- 
cussion, Sondheim explained in 
his correspondence with the Lec- 
ture Committee, "I'll touch on 
various aspects of writing and 
producing musical comedies; and 
also the when, where, and how of 
•West Side Story' and 'Gypsy,' 
laced with numerous spicy stories 
about the participants." 


Following graduation from "Wil- 
liains College in 1950 where he 
had written the book, lyrics and 
music for two College produc- 
tions, Sondheim went to study 
musical composition with Milton 
Babbitt, associate professor at 
Princeton. He produced his first 
professional writing in 1953 as 
co-author of the "Topper" TV 
scries. He is presently working on 
a new musical show, "Roman 
Comedy," based on the works of 
the ancient Roman playwright, 
Plautus, for which he is creating 
the lyrics and music. 

Coach Muir Honored; 
Divel) s Donate Trophy 

A "Rohert B. Nhiir Tronhv" 
Saturday eveninj^ hy Mr. anci Mrs 
Ohio. It is to he awarded anni 
swimmer on the basis of perform- 
ance, leadership, and sportsman- 

The Diveleys made Coach Muir's 
acquaintance through their son, 
Michael A. Dively, '61, a fifty- 
yard freestyler on the varsity 
team. In his presentation, Mr. 
Dively cited Muir as an outstand- 
ing person and an expert in every 
phase of swimming. His son add- 
ed, "My parents and I met Bob 
three years ago and, since then, 
have grown to know him very 
well. We feel that this trophy is 
one way of honoring a person 
whom we greatly admire and re- 
spect. We want to be sure that 
his name will not be lost to future 
swimming teams at Williams af- 
ter his retirement in three years." 

Muir came to Williams as Head 
Coach of Swimming in 1936, and 
during the subsequent 23-year 
period, has developed several ail- 
Americans. His teams have won 
twenty Little Three Titles and 
thirteen New England Intercol- 
legiate titles. He has compiled an 
overall record of 136 wins and on- 
ly 27 losses and, including his 
freshman groups, has had twenty 
seven undefeated teams. 


Muir's skill as a coach was re- 
cognized nationally in 1948 when 
he was asked to serve on the 
coaching staff of the Olympic 
Swimming Team. He held the 
same position in 1952 and became 
head coach in 1956. He has also 
served as president of the Inter- 
collegiate Swimming Coaches As- 
sociation for two years.

Monet Emphasizes 
'Effects Of Light' 


Claude Monet, "the originator 
of impressionism," was the subject 
of a lecture given by Douglas 
Cooper, a noted authority of 19th 
and 20th Century French paint- 

In a robust and witty caricu- 
ture, Cooper pictured Monet as a 
'dominant and creative personal- 
ity,'' who influenced many of those 
who followed him. "As his style 
developed he made innovations & 
revillified his own manner of 
painting. He was a broad, free 
brush-worker and made use of 
polyphonic colors in his later 

In refutation of Roger Fry's ar- 
gument that Monet's work was 
"shockingly unorganized," Cooper 
argued that Monet "sought pre- 
cise perfection. When he started 
a series on the same subject, he 
did not go about it scientifically; 
as some would have it, as ia 
keeping a log book; instead, he 
simply did va/iations on the same 
theme expressing different moods.- 

Cooper divided Monet's work in- 
to five chronological periods. Tlie 
first, from 1857-64, was his period 
of "apprenticeship," in which he 
was strongly influenced by other 
artists. From 1865-71 he develop- 
ed his early style of impression- 
ism, which reached its purest 
form in the third period— from 
1872-77. Prom 1878-91 Monet 
made "further innovations on sty- 
le and elaborated on his impress- 
ionistic techniques." From 1892 
until his death thirty years later, 
he became "increasingly vision- 
ary." This last period Cooper call- 
ed "post-impressionistic." 

Monet. Cooper felt, was a rare 
phenomenon to be labeled — "nat- 
ural-born artist." Cooper empha- 
sized that Monet's subject matter 
was essentially the effects pro- 
duced by light, and as his career 
lengthened, he became more and 
more affected by these effects 
and became increasingly impres- 

iiteiided to compare with Mouse- 
(1 of the year during which so 
s arc scheduled, it makes a )->er- 
fect time to have a date up to go 
to the games and square dance." 
stated John Leech '61 advertising 
inanager for the Purple Key Socie- 

Tlie square dance will run from 
after the basketball game until 
midnight in Baxter Hall. Two call- 
ers, one in the upperclass and one 
in the freshman lounge, will be 
featured. Free beer will be served 
in the Rathskeller, which will have 
music piped in from the radio 
station. Admission to the affair 
will be free. 

Sunday afternoon at 2; 00 in 
Chapin Hall the junior class will 
present a jazz concert by the 
"Surf Club Six". This group was 
organized to play an engagement 
at the Elbow Beach Surf Club in 
Bermuda during spring vacation, 
and is equally composed of camp- 
us and non-campus musicians. 

Included in the band are Walt 
Lehmann on clarinet, who is 
known around here for having 
played with the Spring Street 
Stompers, and Marc Comstock '62 
who will leave his own band tem- 
porarily to play banjo for the 

Spring Student Revue 
'Appraisal' Of Society 

Under the direction Of Giles 
Playfair, Adams Memorial Thea- 
tre head, Cap and Bells will pre- 
sent a program of light and hu- 
morous musical skits in a satiri- 
cal vein opening April 29 at the 

In the words of Tony Stout '61, 
of Cap and Bells, the purpose of 
the production is to "take a criti- 
cal appraisal, through humor, of 
the trends of our present day so- 
ciety." Stout feels that under- 
graduates should have something 
to say about the society of which 
they are a part. He further be- 
lieves that the best medium for 
expressing one's views is the thea- 
tre and the best way to present 
them is through humorous satire. 

The material for the skits will 
be written by Williams under- 
graduates and also some of the 
music will be original. A proposed 
title for the production is "Sick, 
Sick, Sixty".

string orchestra," by Klaus Egge 
and Beethoven's "Symphony No 
8 in F major." 

Tonight will mark the first pub- 
lic performance of Barrow's com- 
position. The "Divertimento" is 
modeled after a type of composi- 
tion popularized by Mozart and 
Haydn in a lighter vein than usual 
symphonic works. Barrow has at- 
tempted to adjust this 18tli cen- 
tury style to contemporary idiom. 
The piece will be performed by a 
typical Mozart orchestra — small 
and with no heavy brass. It is in 
three movements. 

Griswold's piano solo is part of 
a concert adaptation of a Nor- 
weigian folk tune written with a 
modern flavor. It is a very intri- 
cate piece of one long movement. 
Partially because of the extreme 
difficulty of the piece, the con- 
certo has only been performed 
once before in America. 

Shainman's solo will be per- 
formed on a piccolo trumpet. This 
instrument is smaller than a regu- 
lar trumpet and is designed for 
playing in higher registers. Tire 
concerto is an 18th century com- 
position with an elaborate, highly 
decorated solo line. Tlie trumpet 
is featured in the first and last 
movements of the five-movement 

Barrow has written many other 
compositions of different kinds. 
In addition to pieces for full or- 
chestra he has composed music for 
string orchestra, string quartet, 
choral groups and organ. His 
works have been performed by the 
New Haven and National sym- 
phonies, the Paganini and Gordon 
string quartets, and over radio 
station WQXR.

Panel Undertakes 
Evaluation Oi J A 

The first of WMS-WCFM's new- 
ly conceived "Campus Session," an 
informal discussion series will 
take place Monday night at 7; 45 
p. m. in the Psi U. house with 
Dean of Freshmen, William G. 
Cole, next year's Freshman Dean, 
Harlan Hanson; and junior advi- 
sers Tad Day and Tom Fox ex- 
amining the topic: "The J. A. Sys- 
tem; An Evaluation." 

All students, freshmen included, 
and faculty members have been 
invited by the radio station to wit- 
ness and, perhaps, even take part 
in this "Open End-type" discuss- 
ion. In an effort towards improv- 
ing the caliber of the station's 
program content, freshmen, Bruce 
Axelrod and Dave Marash, have 
designed this new show. 

Axelrod insisted, "This will not 
be a panel discussion. We want 
to capture the extemporaneous 
air which accompanies a relax- 
ed informal discussion." In order 
to preserve this spontaneity, the 
show has no time limits, and will 
be taped for broadcast at the 
participants' convenience. Mon- 
day's show will be broadcast over 
WMS-WCFM, next Wednesday at 
10 p. m. 

Centering around campus prob- 
lems, the new program's other 
discussion topics deal with com- 
pulsory chapel and the rushing 
problem. Although at present the 
schedule is somewhat flexible 
Marash stated, "We hope to pre- 
sent a show every third week."

Quo vademus? One 

Tlic (]iR'.stion.s raised by Matt Niiiietz and Ted 
Castle in their recent letters to the editor con- 
cerning the aims and results of the present fresh- 
man orientation are valid ones. They call for 
careful consideration and implementation. 

Tlie present junior adviser system is adequate 
to serve the needs of the present orientation pro- 
gram. That is, the basic assumption of the orienta- 
tion projfram is that freshmen are at the begin- 
ning delicate beings, and need, for the most part, 
faculty and students alike to show them how 
to co])e with the brave new world that is Wil- 
liams. Freshmen who do get off "on the right 
foot" are given approjiriate warnings. Junior ad- 
visers supply tliein with old tests and examina- 
tions in virtually every course so they will know 
how and what to study. Faculty advisers call 
them in for conferences, at which time the faculty 
man, too, gives his advice. Freshman are igno- 
rant; they must be guided. 

There is much that is good in such an ai)))roach 
to orientation to academic life. It is true tliat 
some come here with a more comprehensive aca- 
demic background than others. Some are used 
to working under )jressures im])osed by strict 
deadlines and a heavy work load. In a sense 
the orientation |)rogram as seen in the freshman 
courses, serves as an equalizer. The trouble is 
that thc^ more advanced, but by no means more 
intelligent, students are bored and uninterested 
by courses designed to close the gap im])osed 
by differences in freshman academic back- 
grounds. C>onse(inently, the freshman's initial ex- 
citement of finding himself in a world where one 
conceives of each moment as a new and demand- 
ing challenge, each course as offering him strict 
mental discipline, soon wears off. The reason? 
Siin]5ly that all too often the challenge is not 
there to begin with. 

The academic gap is soon bridged— usually by 
the second semester of the first year— and chal- 
lenges do arise. Many, unfortunately, have either 
forgotten liow to cope with them, or have lost 
the desire. 

Admittedly, for a few gifted students, advanced 
placement can serve as a partial answer to this 
problem. Advanced placement at Williams is still 
relatively new on a large scale, and there are 
many here who, though capable, for one reason 

or another never took advantage of the oppor- 
tunity to obtain advanced standing. Most of 
these are among those Williams men who form 
a strong group of academically disinterested stu- 

Only a |)artial solution is offered by suggestions 
of advanced iilaceinent, or reform in the housing 
system, or in the junior adviser jirogram. The task 
of sustaining the freshman's initial enthusiasm 
lies as much with the freshman himself as with 
the college: the problem is indi\idual as well 
as institutional. 


No forgery 

Mr. Frank Thoins, who is in charge of the Blood- 
mobile's visit to Williamstown early next month, 
has noted that students are forging parents sig- 
natures on permission cards. This is illegal, and 
such cards cannot be accepted. Please send your 
cards home for parents' or guardians' signatures.

To the Student Body: 

During the fall semester the student body 
seemed to have assumed a more mature and 
responsible attitude in its general attitude on 
camjDus. Fewer riots have occurred in the Fresh- 
man Quad, less college jDrojierty was destroyed, 
and fewer rules were broken. 

One noticeable exception has been the cen- 
ter entry of Morgan Hall wherein a secret so- 
ciety has been formed, dedicated to the destruc- 
tion of the dormitory. This group has been mark- 
ed by wanton maliciousness, and the numerous 
disturbances which they have created have be- 
come intolerable both to the innocent members 
of the entry and to the department of Buildings 
and Grounds. Admittedly Morgan Hall is not 
in excellent condition, but the wholesale des- 
truction which has been peqjetrated is childish 
and ignorant. 

On behalf of the student body, the College 
Council is issuing a fair and final warning. In 
the event of recurring episodes severe action 
will be taken by the Council Disciplinary Com-

To the Editor of the RECORD: 

Loyalty Oath 

The recent letter of Bob Myers 
'60 ("Live Modern") certainly re- 
flects the present trend of liberal 
thought in college. Berating our 
trustees on the grounds that they 
aren't following the good old Ivy 
League crowd in opposition to the 
loyalty oath certainly reeks of 
weak-kneed anti-individualism 
and anti-anti-communism. 

It's understandable that he 
should hold such a point of view, 
however. With a faculty contain- 
ing an almost unanimous pre- 
ponderance of liberals, save for a 
bare handful of conservatives, how 
could he take a different stand'? 
Certainly there is an unhealthy 
academic climate prevailing if a 
student can find no support for 
a dissenting view. Education, it 
would seem, is fostered by clashes 
of viewpoints. Without such a 
conflict, mere indoctrination is 
carried out. While it may be point- 
ed out that conflicting docu- 
ments are presented in the class- 
room, certainly no one can deny 
that the merits of any conserva- 
tive (i. e. anti-Keynes, Schlesing- 
er, Galbraith, etc.) views are 
largely ignored or distorted. Can 
the student search out support for 
his dissenting views'? Certainly he 
can, but with the passive attitude 
among students who are over-bur- 
dened with an Increasingly tough- 
ening five-course system, no one 
really finds time or desire to take 
the trouble. It's easier just to ac- 
cept what is dictated and leave 
it at that. 

Concerning the loyalty oath. It 
seems strange that anyone .should 
oppose a mere statement that 
promises that the signer will not 
work to overthrow the govern- 
ment by force, under penalty of 
perjury. The government has en- 
ough trouble finding grounds for 
removing communists the loyalty 
oath is a mere legal device for 
providing such grounds. (After all, 
we are spending upwards of $40 
billion to combat communism mil- 
itarily, certainly we are setting a 

double standard if we toi\M 
means to combat it politically ) 
Educators are no more uniuii- 
mously non-communists than ;iie 
clergymen the Audobon Socnty 
or even the DAR. Why the "groiip" 
will try to protect and embiice 
an errant member (a communist) 
for the sake of the "group'' is l)e. 
yond reason. No group is peij,.ct 
to the last man. the evil elcni. nt 
ought to be allowed to be cu..e(j 
out for the sake of that "groi:)"

Rationale For Action.? 

Last Monday night, Mr. Maui oe 
Rosenblatt stressed the need ijr 
the United States to develop a 
purpose — a rationale for action. 
His three criteria for action wen'; 
democracy, capitalism and Chr.s- 
tianity. I for one am sick of su' h 
generalities. They tell us nothing 
about how to act in specific in- 

Mr. Rosenblatt's lecture would 
have meant a lot more had he 
gone on to show how we would ap- 
ply his three values in specific His unwillingness to do so 
pointed up the basic weakness of 
American politics. Those in the 
positions of leadership refuse to 
a sume their responsibilities; at 
the same time, nobody is willing to 
lake clearly defined positions of 
opposition. What the United 
Slates needs more than anything 
else is men who have the courage 
to take articulated stands on spec- 
ific i.s.sues. Only if the possibility 
of choo.sing is given to the Ameri- 
can people on these grounds can 
we hope to develop a "purpose" 
through the democratic process.

Taligula' Play Of Motion, Emotion; 1 525 ^"^^rgraJuafcs Townsend Chosen As 

Reviewer Hails Camus Production 

Caius Caeser Germanicus, called i 
Caligula, terrorized Rome from 
37 - 41 A. D. He appointed his 
horse consul and regretted that 
llie whole populace had not one 
lioad to be severed with a single 
blow, so the legends say. He was 
insane but powerful; ruthless with 
undirected absolute power. At the 
a;e of 29, he was a.ssassinated. 

Young Albert Camus was inter- 
ested in the problem of whether 
ii is possible to achieve complete 
Inedom, and he wrote a play call- 
en Caligula. It opened two weeks 
ii in New York amid the 
II .)st intense intellectual fanfare

t:ilented French author, who had

wliich sweep up both sides and in 
back of a massive podium fifteen

l.ieular setting. 

Caligula disrupts the Roman 
world by introducing a new, sing- 
le law: "A man dies because he 
i.s guilty. A man is guilty 
he is one of Caligula's subjects. 
Now all men are Caligula's sub- 
jects. Ergo, all men are guilty and 
shall die." The ruler operates by 
whim and free will, supported on- 
ly by the perfect logic of this law.

CALIGULA: It's a question of 
making the impossible possible . . . 
This world has no importance- 
once a man realizes that he wins 
his freedom . . . i don't respect 
I human life) more than I respect 
my own Ufe . . . And I believe that 
all I actions) are on an equal foot- 

It is a proposition which few 
Romans can comprehend because 
its logic destroys any possibility 
of meaning for human life. This 
is what his philosophic as.sassin, 
Cherea played with power and 
ta.ste by Philip Bourneuf, says. 

CHEREA: What's intolerable is 
... to be told there's 
for existing . 

actions are more praiseworthy 
than others . . . ii want to kill you) I regard you as a con- 
stant menace ... (We) resent liv- 
ing in a world where the most pre- 
po.stcrous fancy may at any mom- 
ent become a reality, and the ab- 
surd transfixes our lives. 

The mistress-queen of Colleen 
Dewhurst as Caesonia loves Calig- 
ula. She cannot really understand 
him, but she helps the young aes- 
etic poet resolve his own hatred 
and love of the emperor. Clifford 
David as Scipio .shows us a con- 
vincingly perplexed man of 
heightened sensitivity, whose 
father has been murdered by Cali- 

.SCIPIO: I am resolved to tell 
the truth ... I have my own sor- 
row, but I suffer with him too. I 
share his pain. I understand all, 
that's my trouble. 

It is a |)lay of great motion, and 
of great emotion. Caligula's ac- 
tions are alternately grotesque 
and hilarious. As Camus himself 
notes in his 1957 preface, it is not 
a play of philosophy or ideology. 
"For the dramatist the passion 
for the impossible is just as valid 
a .subject for study as avarice or 
adultery. Showing it in all its 
frenzy, illustrating the havoc it 
wrecks, bringing out its failure — 
such was my intention. And the 
work must be judged thereon." 


Place On Dean's List, 
Landsbury High -11.5 

325 Williams undergraduates 
made the Dean's List for the first 
.semester of this academic year. 
This total, 30.1 per cent of the 
entire student body, is the highest 
in recent years. 

In the .senior class, seven stu- 
dents earned an average of 11.00 
or higher. They are: Lewis Lands- 
berg (11.50), Matthew Nimetz (11. 
20), Edward J. Brash, Henry D. 
Cohen, Deane W. Merrill, Dennis 
S. Mitchell, and Geoffrey R. Swift 
'all 11.00). In the Junior 
four had averages of 10.50 or high- 
er: Eric H. Davis (11.20), David 
S. Ayers ( 11.00), Robert D. Sleep- 
er (10.80) and Henry S. Richmond 

Among the Sophomores, four 
had averages above 10.25: Dennis 
Bauman and James E. Harring- 
ton (10.60), Jere Behrman and 
William Leckie (10.40). Five 
freshman bettered the 10.00 mark: 
David W. Cornish (10.60) Alan L. 
Schlosser (10.40), John M. Dor- 
man (10.20), Stuart H. Brown and 
Allen F. Spooner (10.00). 

By percentage on deans ILst, 
class of '60 - 47.9 per cent; '61 - 
32.4 per cent; '62 - 24.0 per cent 
and '63 - 19.0 per cent; each class 
bettered its last year's position. 
The present senior class has a 
greater percentage of its members 
on the list than any class in the 
past three years. The juniors have 
the same percentage as last year's 
junior and are well ahead of 
previous junior classes. The sopho- 
mores bettered the mark set by 
last year's sophomore class as well 
as the comparable class two years 
ago. The freshmen did slightly 
worse than last year's freshman 
class but better than the average. 

A Navy Information Team 
will be in Baxter Hall Monday 
and Tuesday, February 29 and

The Tri-city symphony orches- 
tra is a professional group of 47 
musicians from the Albany-Troy- 
Schenectady area. Francis Car- 
ver, first flutist of the orchestra 
was the featured soloist at the 
Quindecem concert earlier this 
school year. Edgar Curtis, founder 
and conductor of the group, has 
appeared in this area before as 
guest conductor of the Berkshire 
community symphony orchestra

m mu. AM)i:iisos 

This marks the first time Coach 
Townsend has been called on to 
instruct at a championship meet. 
He will spend six days in Michi 
gan coaching a group of 15 boys 
14 to 17 years old in the fine 
points of cross-country and jump- 

While talking of the meet Town- 
send pointed out that both skiers 
and coaches must pay their own 
way to the National Junior and 
all other United States amateur 
meets, as well as the Olympics. 

"Through lack of financial 
backing," Townsend said, "ama- 
teur skiing becomes survival of 
the money and not survival of 
the best. Most competitors are 
sponsored by a school or club; but 
if a person cannot obtain through 
one means or another the neces- 
sary finances, he does not com- 

Townsend cited the Winter 
Olympics as proof of the inade- 
quacies of U. S. amateur skiing 
in comparison to that of other 
countries. "Most of our amateur 
skiers." he said, "are college- 
trained. And colleges are the 
world's worst training camps. They 
necessarily produce a part time 

"At Squaw Valley our skiers are 
comi^eting against people from 
various walks of life who have 
had the opportunity to work full- 
time at skiing through the finan- 
cial backing of some national or- 
ganization, often dependent ul- 
timately on State aid." 

In other countries such as Swe- 
den, Townsend stated, a national 
.ski association selects paid train- 
ers and coaches and .supports a 
group of skiers, whose sole job is 
to prepare for the Olympics. Far- 
thest from the true ethics of am- 
ateurism is the U. S. S. R., which 
gives direct State support to the 
development of amateur athletics. 

Townsend summed up by saying 
that there is no clear-cut way in 
the United States today to raise 
sufficient funds for various ama- 
teur athletic programs. "Finan- 
cial support is very austere, be- 
cause the United States is afraid 
of professionalism. A very fine 
line divided the two, and the line 
varies from country to country." 

Two Eph Contingents 
Favored For Crowns 

Williams varsities are favored 
to win two Little Three crowns 
as five teams are slated to see ac- 
tion this weekend. The basketball 
and hockey teams meet Wesleyan, 
and wrestling and squash take on 
Amherst at home, while the swim- 
mers journey to Amherst for a 
meet with the Jeffs. 

The Eph hoopsters will be out 
to revenge an early season 64-55 
loss to Wesleyan this Saturday 
night in the Laselle gymnasium. 
On this game and those succeed- 
ing, not only Little Three for- 
tunes but a berth in the NCAA Re- 
gional playoffs depends. 

After a 9-0 shellacking of Wes- 
leyan's squash forces, the Eph- 
men are in a good position to an- 
nex the Little Three title Satur- 
day. Amherst, with a 4-2 record 
to date, also appears strong. 

Coach DeLisser's grapplers will 
battle Amherst Saturday for sec- 
ond place in the Little Three

Ephs By 5-1 Count 

A fast breaking Hamilton team 
harnessed the varsity hockey 
team for the second time this sea-

nesday night. Bill Beadle scored 
the lone Williams goal, as well as 
doing an excellent job of holding 
the high-scoring Tim Norbeck to 
one tally. 

The Ephmen pelted the Blue 
netminder Pogo Collins with 41 
shots, but, as has been the prob- 
lem all season, couldn't slip the 
puck through. Hamilton Ukewise 
took 41 shots, with superior team-

For the second game in a row, 
the game's top scorer was a fresh-

The Williams freshmen five 
left Troy Wednesday night with 
a satisfying 65-56 victory over 
the R. P. I. frosh. It was their 
twelfth win in 13 starts. 

Battling a team their equal in 
height, the Ephmen showed the 
rebounding and speed which has 
accounted for their great success 
this season. With Dan Voorhees 
and Gordon Davis clearing the 
defensive boards, Williams was ab- 
le to launch several fast-breaks a- 
gainst their slower opponents. 
The Purple maintained a suffici- 
ent lead throughout the game, 
then settled back to meet a deter- 
mined R. P. I. rally led by play- 
maker Heck, who scored 10 points 
In the final quarter. Voorhees 
led the Eph scoring with 25 
points, followed by Steve Wein- 
stock with 16 and Harry Lum 
with 10. 

The Purple squad will take on 
the Wesleyan freshmen tomor- 
row in Lasell Gymnasium. They

R. P. I. abandoned their I :ai-

Dear Dr. Frood: Presumably college is 
a time of intellectual ferment ... a period 
of curiosity and discontent preceding a

the material life. Why must this inquiry 
after lofty truths suddenly give way to 
crass financial motives? Ibid 

Dear Ibid: It's the children. All they seem 
to care about is food, food, food.

Considers Strengths, 
Weaknesses, Of JA 

"The junior advisor system 
t'lew out of a need to mold tlie 
freshmen into a class," remarked 
Dean Cole, Monday night at the 
Psi Upsilon House. "They were 
meant to serve as 'big brothers,' 
helping the freshmen adjust 
themselves to this strange new 

The Dean of Freshmen, Pro- 
fessor Hanson, Dean of Freshmen- 
elect, Tom Pox, president of the 
J. A.'s and junior advisor Tad 
Day met to gain an "Evaluation 
of the Junior Advisor system." The 
panel discussion, sponsored by 
WMS under the direction of fresh- 
men Bruce Axelrod and Dave Mar- 
ash, was taped and will be aired 
in its entirety over WMS tonight 
at 10 P. M. 

Moderators Marash and Axelrod 
charged the panel to point out 
the successes and failures of the 
system as they saw it. Fox quickly 
pointed out that the greatest 
weakness extant was the system's 
inability to "divorce the junior ad- 
visor from fraternities." Although 
It may not be the case, the college 
sees the J. A. as "using his in." 
Thus, the junior advisor loses his 
effectiveness as a bridge between 
the freshmen and the upper class- 
es. Axelrod reinforced this say- 
ing, "We begin to wonder w'hcther 
the J. A. is showing genuine in- 
terest or is looking for informa- 
tion for the card catalogue.'' 
"You know now how a Smith girl 
feels when she is being sized up," 
Dean Cole quipped. 

Is the junior advisor a rushing 
tool? the panel was asked. "No," 
lesponded Day. "The junior advi- 

sor has to bend over backwards to 
avoid any hint of 'dirty rushing.' " 
Cole, serving as J. A. historian for 
the evening, added, "The charge of 
■dirty rushing' by a J. A. has nev- 
er been substantiated. An advisor 
has never been accused of the 
crime. There was an investigation 
by the CO a few years ago to see 
if there was any correlation be- 
tween the houses of the J. A.'s and 
the freshman's eventual affilia- 
tion. The results were negative." 
The recent Nimetz proposal, sug- 
gesting integrated dorms to facil- 
itate freshman -upperclass rela- 
tions, was rejected by the panel. 
Pox said simply, "The advantages 
of unity in the quadrangle 
outweigh the benefits from the 
propo.sal. Meeting uppcrclassmen 
is up to the freshman s initiative." 
Dean Cole supported the quad ar- 
rangement. "We get as good raw 
intellectual material as any in- 
stitution in the country. It's what 
happens to it after they get here 
that hurts. We must keep the 
freshmen insulated from the vices 
of intellectual apathy of upper- 

Turning to a discussion of the 
qualifications for selection of the 
junior advisor. Tad Day recom- 
mended that greater emphasis be 
placed on the aspirant's scholas- 
tic record. He felt that there are 
some J. A.'s whose attitudes to- 
wards studies should not be im- 
parted to freshmen. Record editor 
John Mayher noted from the audi- 
ence that sometimes students with 
the highest scholastic averages do

Ihen Sheds Light 
On Stellar Ideas 

Professor Icko A. Iben of the 
Phy.sics Department will deal with 
the aging of stars in a lecture 
"The Evolution of Ideas Concern- 
ing Stellar Evolution" to be given 
4:30 Thursday in the Biology 
Building. This talk is part of the 
current Spring faculty series. 

Iben will discuss what stars 
have done in the past and what is 
to be expected from them in the 
future. He will investigate the 
brightness of stars and the dura- 
tion of their existence in i.'elation 
to the stars' aging. Study in this 
field was begun in 1937 by Bethe 
and Weizsacker. They first iden- 
tified the nuclear energy mechan- 
isms in a star. 

Iben recommends for those who 
are interested, although not nec- 
e.ssarily expert, in the theories of 
stellar evolution to peruse Fred 
Hoyle's Frontier of Astronomy. 
Both Hoyle and Schwartzschild, 
noted astrophysicists, have con- 
structed stellar models, which are 
used as bases for work in this 
field. Iben believes that "In our 
present scientific world, reading 
such as this is important." 

Chaplain Coffin Attacks 
Lack Of Inner Identity 

"Wlicn late at night you decide 
to pay a call on yourself, is any- 
one home'.-' Isn't it because in our 
day particularly, .you and I are un- 
easy less because we have lost our 
.souls, more because we have never 
found them in the first place. We 
have never established our per- 
sonal identity. No wonder we are 
suckers for every sales campaign. 
Didn't Peter Marshall warn, "A 
man who stands for nothing will 
fall for anything?" 

Reverend William Coffin, deliv- 
ering his sermon before a large 
gathering at Sunday night chapel, 
put across his first point with a 
bob of his horn rims. The dynamic 
Coffin, who served as Williams 
chaplain in 1956-57, is now chap- 
lain at "Vale University. 


Coffin told about a series of 
psychological tests given to a 
group of parish ministers. "Those 
men whose ministry was judged 
■effective' in the typically Ameri- 
can terms of large congregations

H. L Hirsche Views Historic Chapel; 
Explains Spiritual Artistic Beauty 

The French chapel at Ron- 
champ, a thing to "be felt-not 
studied, to be experienced-not 
rationally understood.'' was the 
subject of Professor H. Lee Hirs- 
che's faculty lecture Thursday af- 
ternoon. The chapel was designed 
by Le Corbusier. 

In prefacing his remarks. Art 
Professor Hirsche paraphrased the 
quotation from Goethe used last 
week by Professor Harlan Han- 
son. "This work is not meant to 
be judged once and for all, but 
rather, for each observer to reach 
his own interpretation . . . Every- 
one should observe it so that he 
may be moved according to the 
measure of his mind." Because of 
the many facets of the structure, 
because of the various interpre- 
tations possible, the chapel must 
be considered as "an object that 
exists as a concrete reality rather 

than as a moment in the historic 
development of Le Corbusier." 

Hirsche organized his analysis 
around the five basic criteria of 
any work of architecture — .scale, 
proportion, form, function, and 
relationship between design and 
material. In his application of the 
first three of these criteria to the 
chapel, he emphasized the neces- 
sity of subjective participation by 
the observer. The scale is uncer- 
tain. The chapel is entirely free 
of traditional shapes and forms 
and hence, the observer finds him- 
self in a strange world with no 
familiar basis of judging size. 
This is intentional for Le Corbusi- 
er wants the size to be "felt rather 
than recognized." 

Form and proportion, like scale.

of study at Exeter College at Ox- 
ford. The recipient is chosen from 
those who have majored in Greek, 
Latin, English, history, political 
science, philosophy, religion, or ec- 
onomics. The basis for the award 
is general interest and intellectu- 
al ability as demonstrated in the 
major field of study. 

Steve Beal has been very inter- 
ested in creative writing at Wil- 
liams and this fall served on the 
editorial board of the Red Balloon. 
An English honors major, he plans 
to continue study in the field of 
Elizabethan literature. 

Another two year award for stu- 
dy at Oxford, the Carroll A. Wil- 
son Scholarship was donated by 
Carroll Wilson '07 in memory of 
his son John E. 'Wil.son '44 who 
was killed in World War II in the 
crossing of the Rhine. It is award- 
ed after the manner of the Rhodes

Initiating a new award, Gar-

Jointly present a $100 book prize 
in honor of a faculty member. The 
presentation has been tentatively 
set for the annual Spring tappmg 

The money is given to a profes- 
sor, either active or emeritus, who 
in turn purchases books for the 
Williams library. Tnese books are 
supposed to be from areas out- 
side of the professor's particular 
field in order to add a personal 
character to the collection. 

This award embodies student 
appreciation for the faculty as 
a whole and is not intended as a 
recognition of popularity. Also the 
presentation does not single out 
the recipient as superior to his 
colleagues, stated Gargoyle presi- 
dent Harrell Smith '60.

Wesleyan vs. NDEA 

Continued opposition to the 
Federal Student Loan Program, 
even If the Kennedy Amendment 
is passed, was indicated by Wes- 
leyan faculty members last week. 
Senator Kennedy's bill would 
eliminate the Disclaimer Affidavit 
provision of the National Defense 
Education Act of 1958 but would 
not do away with the required 
loyalty oath. 

Friday's "Wesleyan Argus" re- 
corded the chairman of a special 
faculty committee as saying he 
could see no distinction between 
the oath and the affidavit. He 
noted, however, that opposition to 
the alfidavit was stronger than 
that directed against oath during 
last fall's debates.

Sponsors Lecture On 
Backward Countries 

The wide-spread and numerous 
effects of United States invest- 
ment on the economies of under- 
developed countries will be dis- 
cussed tonight in 3 Griffin at 8 
P. M. 

Under the Gibson Fund the Ec- 
onomics Department of Williams 
has invited Richard P. Koenig and 
H. Danforth Starr i'271. President 
and 'Vice-President respectively of 
the Cerro de Pasco Corporation. 
The topic of the discussion will be 
"Some aspects of private invest- 
ment in underdeveloped countries" 
and will be led alternately by Mr. 
Koenig and Mr. Starr. 


Cerro do Pasco Corporation Is a 
corporation that operates mainly 
in Central and South America. 
The operations of the company 
have afforded Koenig and Starr 
ample opportunity to observe the 
effects that they will attempt to 
clarify tonight. Because the com- 
pany operates in more than one 
country they will be able to enu- 
merate the varying results of simi- 
lar investment programs in differ- 
ent countries. 

Mr. Koenig, a graduate of Har- 
vard, has been in mining for most 
of his life. During World War II 
he served on Eisenhower's general 
.staff and distinguished himself by 
receiving the Crois de Guerre.

tlie Junior Adviser can play a most valuable role. 

Bcinj^ virtually the only real and constant con- 
tact that the freshman has with upperclassmen, 
the JA must )5rovide the o|3portunity for this 
stimulation both on his own and by encomagin^ 
his freshmen to take acKantage of e\ery other 
means open to the |)romotion of this goal. Some- 
tiling might be said for the social segregation 
of the freshman class. There is no excuse, how- 
ever, for segregating this always new and always 
fresh groujD of minds from benefitting antl con- 
tributing to the intellectual community, 

JA's are picked in many ways and for many rea- 
sons, almost all of which are valid in view of the 
many roles they have to fill. The real key to the 
dilemma of who really is the most cjualified to 
serve is the opinion of the committee as to what 
arc the most im|Dortant functions of the group. 

If the stimulation and encouragement of the life 
of the mind is not considered the jjrimary role 
of a JA and they are not picked with this goal in 
mincl, then some other method must be thought 
out to ensure the freshman a chance to be cog- 
nizant of and respond to some of the exciting 
ideas being discussed in the rest of the college 
community, Matthew Nimetz's idea of mixhig 
u|> the classes in the dormitories might be one 
solution, A general relaxation of the rushing at- 
mosphere might be another. Such a relaxation 
would ease the tensions im]50sed by the sjiectre of 
dirty rushing. 

With these changes the initiative would still have 
to come from the individuals concerned on both 
sides of the fence. This fence would ho|5cfully|)]5ear, but the keystone to any system re- 
mains the resident adviser in the c|uad, lie must 
be aware of both the need and the real desire for 
this kind of intellectual intercourse, and be will- 
ing to )3romote it to the best of his ability. With- 
out it the most im|Dortant jjhases of freshman 
year at Williams will remain the class snow 
scidpture and how fast we got the goalposts 


Order ? 

Everybody is getting into the act. During the sec- 
ond semester the camjius will have heard lec- 
tures presented by the Lecture Committee, the 
Faculty Lecture Series, the Adelphic Union, Aes- 
cula]5ian Society. Public SjDeaking de]3artment, 
Poly Sci, Economics, and Physics de]Daitments— 
to name a few. There will have been a Career 
Weekend, a WCC foreign student weekend, and 
a Vital Issues conference. Not to mention fra- 
ternity speakers galore, an occasional fraternity 
symposium, and WMS discussions. 

And Nobody should mind it. During the school 
year audiences have chances to hear f^ood speak- 
ers on varied toj^ics and often. Williams is alive 
because the students are interested in what is go- 
ing on and have jilenty to be interested in. 

The only coordination for these myriad activi- 
ties takes j^lace when the dean's secretary enters 
them on the college calendar. There is little 
consideration of a substantively complete or or- 
dered lecture program. 

Certainly we do not need to have two important 
lectures on the same day. Lectures on related 
topics could be held close together. Considera- 
tion of unconnected topics in the same general 
field could be spread out over the semester. 

The Lecture Committee has confined itself 
the past to providing its own slate of speakers 
to compete for the Williams ear. Now the tre- 
mendous onslaught of speeches and programs of 
all types suggests a need for the tyi:)e of co- 
ordination that a joint faculty-student lecture 
coinmittee of the present type might well provide. 
Having an intellectual community which is will- 
ing to let down its drawbridge to the outside 
world is encouraging and exciting. It need not 
be hectic.

' The unexamined life ' 

Eroin the Swarthmore Phoenix comes the story of 
some Swarthmore College students' attendance 
at a recent hearing of the House C;ommittee on 
Un-.\mcrican Activities. They heard testimony 
in last summer's Communist-organized World 
Youth Festival in Vienna. 

Francis E. Walter, chairman of the committee, 
addressed the twenty Swarthmore and Oberlin 
College students who were seated as obser\ers 
in the committee hearing room: "1 want i/uii wise 
nobodies to know that one of these days you'll 
he glad you live in a republic." 

One student called before the committee was 
a twenty-year-old former member of the Com- 
munist Party, who named every |)arty member he 
could think of. Several times, according to die 
I'lioenix, Walter interru]jted the testimony to re- 
mark, "f want you young peo]Dle ( the Swarthmore 
and Oberhn observers) to know tiiat this is a 
noble and jjatriotic young American who is do- 
ing a great service for his race (negro) and 
country." Also, whenever the witness said any- 
thing derogatory about the Communists, commit- 
tee members would interject "Yes, they're hke 
that," or "That's their habit." 

According to the Phoenix, the secretary of the 
national Communist Party then testified. He 
"spoke before the Coimnittee with dignity and 
impressive de|3ortment. He was completely un- 
cooiJcrative, eloquently declaring that the Com- 
mittee itself was Un-American. He challenged 
the Committee, demanding to know why the 
lynchers of Mack Parker were not sub|5oenaed, 
and why the Committee conducted no investiga- 
tions concerning the recent outbreak of anti- 
Semitism. Walter re]3lied that the Committee 
had information to the effect that the anti-Semi- 
tism was fostered by the Communists ..." 

What Walter and his committee fail to realize 
is that students are well aware of the so-called 
"Communist challenge", but that we, as students, 
must know, must ex]3erience this challenge. The 
very nature of the academic life induces inciuiry 
anci examination. Students must make their de- 
cisions, their commitments on theh own; tiiat is, 
on the basis of personal study and ciuestioning. 
Most of us cannot acce]5t unexamined such aca- 
demic brainwashing as Walter appears to be ad- 
vocating, —editors 


ft was just another weekend in the Berkshires 
cKcejit for the fact that the Purjile Key had de- 
cided to make it special so that the Freshman 
could get dormitory hours for their dates. There 
were an extraordinary amount of sports events, 
which we won more than we lost, and a square 
dance in the Student Union offered free beer 
to the hardy. 

A jazz concert was held Sunday afternoon to 
give the Class of '61 a chance to recoup its de- 
cidedly weak financial position. Unfortunately, no 
one went. In a rare phenomenon, the sun shone 
on Sunday. (Not very hard or very long mind 
you, but enough that we won't forget what it 
looks like. ) 

The real climax of the weekend came with the 
return of William Sloane Coffin to the Chapel 
piil]5it, and in the Sunday Times we could for- 
get the problems of the world and gaze fondly 
at Princess Margaret's ring. —mayher 

Letters to the editor: 

Weak Logic 

Comrade Campaigne, Jr. '62: 

The internal logic of your dia- 
lectic is weak. Paragraph two of 
your letter states, "Certainly there 
is an unhealthy academic climate 
prevailing if a student can find 
no support for a dissenting view." 
Paragraph three states, "Why the 
•group' will try to protect and em- 
brace an errant member (a com- 
munist) for the sake of the 'group' 
is beyond reason. No group Is per- 
fect to the last man, the evil ele- 
ment ought to be allowed to be 
culled out for the sake of that 
'group'." The 'errant member', 
which you want to purge, is the 
same member that provides sup- 
port for a student's dissenting 
views. Your proposed inquisition 
would result in the destruction of 
individualism. Where is the stop- 
ping point in intellectual purges? 
After the communists are all elim- 
inated, certainly there are erring 

Comrade, you miss the essence 
of the objections to a loyalty oath 
and the substance of Bob Myers' 
letter. No one is trying to protect 
Russian saboteurs. People are try- 
ing to protect intellectual and aca- 
demic freedom. This includes the 
right of a Marxist to spread his 
beliefs and the right of Jim Cam- 
paigne to spread his views. As- 
sume that Williams College is op- 
erating under a loyalty oath sys- 
tem. Assume that Williams Is as 
slanted as you claim. Following 
your dogma you would have to be 
purged. You are advocating force 
I government removal) to destroy 
the academic freedom of the rest 
of the community. By your own 
system you should be removed. In- 
stead you have the right to advo- 
cate the end of intellectual free- 
dom just as the communist has 
the right to advocate the elim- 
ination of capitalism. 

I agree with you that Williams 
could use a wider range of views. 
Williams could even use a few 
'evil' communists and fascists. If 
our faculty really is a preponder- 
ance of liberals, you are a monu- 
ment to the failure of their pro-

are relative to the observer. A-; 
one walks around the chapel hr 
finds a variety of perspectives,

upon "the subjective elements 
of the observer" for its inter-

The double function of the 
chapel, that of a pilgrim shrine 
and of a sanctuary for a small 
group of worshippers, Is accom- 
plished by the genius of Le Cor- 
busier's design. Externally one 
finds a "spectacular combination 
of form"; inside, there is a mood 
of "quiet meditation," The build- 
ing material-concrete-is well suit- 
ed to the chapel in that it allows 
the escape from convention nec- 
essary for the newness and free- 
dom of design. 


The beauty of Ronchamp, Hirs- 
che feels, is not only the beauty ol 
a modern building but that of a 
modern religious building. One 
leaves feeling that he has "parti- 
cipated in a deeply religious ex- 
perience," and this was the inten- 
tion of the designer. In his dedica 
tion, Le Corbusier, expressed thi- 
hope that "it will draw out of you 
as those who will climb the hili, 
an echo of what we have put int^i 
it.'' It is the realization of this 
hope, through genius of design, 
that makes the chapel at Ron- 
champ a "remarkable building,"

(Author of "I Was a Tn'n-iKjc Dirnrf", "The Manij 
Laves of Dobie (lillis", etc.) 


It was a dullish evciiiiiti; at the Tlieta house. The pledges were 
down in tlic catacombs; the actives were sacked out upstairs, 
not doing much of anything, .\hirv l']llen Knniihald was stick- 
ing pins in an elligy of the hiniseiimthcr; i'^vclyn Zinsniaster 
was welding a manhole cover to her charm bracelet; .Mj^elica 
McKeesport was writing a letter to Fabian in blood. Like I say, 
it was a dullish evening. 

Suddenly Dolores Vladnay stood up and stamped her foot. 
"Chai)s," she said toher.sonirs, "this is too yawn-making! Let's 
do something gay and mad and gasp-making. .■\nyh(jdy got an 

"Xo," said the sorors, shaking their httle sausage curls, 
"Think, chaps, tliinki" said Dolores and jiassed Marlboro 
cigarettes to everybody, for if there ever was a smoke to start 
you thinking, it is mild and flavorful Marlboro! Things come 
clear when you jjuiT that good, clean smoke through that fine 
filter— knots untie, dilemmas dissolve, iiroblems evaporate, 
cobwebs vanish, fog disperses, and the benevolent sun jionrs 
radiance on a new and dewy world. Oh, hajipy world! Oh, 
Marlboro! Oh, soft pack! Oh, flip-top box! Oh, get some 
already I 


Now (leraldine Quidnunc, her drooping brain cells revivified 
by a good Marlboro, leapt up and cried, "Oh, I have a perfect 
gasser of an idea! Let's hypnotize somebody!" 

"Oh, capital!" cried the sorors. "Oh, tingle-making!" 

At this point, in walked a young jiledge named -Mice Rlue- 
gown. "Excuse me, mistresses," .said she, tugging her forelock, 
"I have finished making your beds, doing your homework, and 
ironing your pleats. Will there be anything else?" 

"Yes," snaiipcd Dolores Vladnay. "When I count to three, 
you will be hypnotized." 

"Yes, excellency," said Alice, bobbing a curtsey. 

"One, two, three," said Dolores. 

Alice jiromptly went into a trance. 

"Go back," said Dolores, "back into your childhood. Go 
back to your fifth birthday, back to your birth, to before your 
birth, to your last incarnation . . . Now, who are you?" 

"My name is Bridey Sigafoos," said Alice. "The year is 1818, 
and I am in County Cork." 

"Cool" said the sorors. 

"How old are you?" asked Dolores. 

"I am seven," said Alice. 

"Wliere is your mother?" asked Dolores. 

"1 don't know," said Alice. "She got sold at the fair last 

"Coo!" said the sorors. 

"Tell us about yourself," said Dolores. 

"I am five feet tall," said Alice. "I have brown eyes, and I 
weigh 3200 i»unds." 

"Coo!" said the sorors. 

"Isn't that rather heavy for a girl?" said Dolores. 

"Wlio's a girl?" said Alice. "I'm a black and white guernsey.'

lot of kidding about in 
the quad, but we are coming to 
the time of .serious evaluation," 

Almost all felt that pressure 
would increase toward the end of 
this year, since "you can't see all 
the houses and make judgments in 
one week of rushing. The hou,se is 
the guys in it and you've got to 
know some beforehand." 

All but one interviewed felt that 
"it wouldn't do any harm to know 
more than we do; freshmen could 
be informed without greater pres- 
sure on them," The freshmen 
could decide, however, on no sat- 
isfactory means of information. 
The only suggestion of how they 
could be informed, by freshman 
tours of the houses, was rejected 
by more than half of those inter- 
viewed. They felt that tours 
would add relatively nothing to 
their knowledge and instead fos- 
ter unfair judgments as well as 
increased tensions. 

Most of those interviewed felt 
that a fraternity .should be pri- 
marily a social organ rather than 
an intellectual one. One saw the 
house as "an expansion of an en- 
try with an atmosphere more con- 
ducive to close ties," Most expect- 
ed firmer friendships and a more 
active social life from a house, 
but felt the house "should not be 
a germination place for intellect. 
Classes and personal friends 
should provide the chief outlet for 

Alpha . .Beta . .Gamma . .? 

intellectual pursuits." Only a tiny 
minority of two were seriously dis- 
turbed about fraternities as an in- 
tellectually-stifling force which 
"breeds stagnation of the mind." 

Praise of the Junior Adviser sys- 
tem was unanimous, although de- 
gree of enthuiasm varied consid- 
erably. Most felt the JA should 
serve in a "big brother" capacity. 
They also expressed their belief 
that this year's group had suc- 
ceeded in this function, A fairly 
large group felt that the first 
two months of orientation, the 
JA's role was simply to unify the 
entry and provide occasional help, 
both practical and emotional. 
The system's severest critic stated 
that a lot of them are "simply a 
glad hand, a buddy, a pal," 

Most of the interviewees realiz- 
ed that they had met a good many 
of their Junior Advisers' brothers, 
but felt that this was not a pre- 
meditated plan. One notable ex- 
ception, however, saw the JA as 
"the main method of .screening 
guys. If I had a serious emotional 
problem and was bent on impress- 

ing fraternities, I wouldn't take 
my problems to a JA." 

The freshmen were split on the 
question of the existence of a 
"Spirit of '63." All admitted that 
the turnout for the freshman 
snow sculpture was disappointing, 
"with a core of about fifty guys 
doing most of the work," Some 
thought this was just not the type 
of project to attract strong class 

One class member felt that 
"there is a strong class spirit; we 
are a fraternity among ourselves," 
Another stated, "the pep rally 
spirit is not deep, but a meaning- 
less high school spirit,'' Still an- 
other found the class "devoid of 
any spirit whatsoever." All who 
felt there was a strong spirit a- 
greed it was doomed to "succumb 
to fraternity pressure by junior 


The main body of those inter- 
viewed felt that Total Opportunity 
and the new rule making it nec- 
essary are "good things". One 
stated, "Fraternities have to make 
so many snap judgments that this 
plan gives a chance to those who 
may be quiet or who worry a lot 
about their studies their first 

"I'm a little strange; I'm glad 
to have this new system," com- 
mented one freshman meekly. 

Two or three of the interviewees 
opposed total opportunity blunt- 
ly, "Fraternities should be groups 
of like people who want to associ- 
ate with each other as brothers," 
said one: "total opportunity des- 
troys the strong ties of brother-

U^S, Education, Girls 


"In France there is not the di- 
rect and continuous contact be- 
tween teacliers and students tliat 
I find here," commented Jacques 
Bliard, a junior from Paris, who 
is majoiing in German. 

Continuing his comparison of 
the American and French educa- 
tional systems, Jacques remarked, 
"When we (French) get finished 
with lycee ' the equivalent of an 
American high school and the 
first two years of college i. we have 
a broader education. We have on 
the average of ten courses per 

He pointed out other differ- 
ences. "In France studies are free. 
You have to choose between the 
classical and modern sections 
when you enter a lycee. I find 
that American courses have much 
more reading material. In France, 
a teacher will quote many sources 
to illustrate his point, but you 
aren't required to read all of them. 
I study more for a course in Am- 
erica." Jacques stated that French 
exams are more subjective and 
courses are continuous. "They 
don't end at the end of the se- 

Bliard recounted his impres- 
sions of Williams. "It's a very good 
school from the point of view of 
studies. I like being on campus. 
It concentrates my attention more 
on school. I feel I'm a part of the 
school. There is more student con- 
tact. The French universities don't 
have campuses. 

"I prefer the social life here. 
There is a lot more freedom and 
organized activity. I miss rugby 
and handball, though." Jacques 
on fraternity life: "In a party, 
the guys get drunk before dinner 
and it's finished for the rest of 
the evening." 

"The middle class French girl 
is very conscious of her dress and 
her appearance. She is much more 
conscious than the American girl. 
Some French girls are intellectual, 
but most are not. Tliey are look- 
ing for money and a high society 


"I have the impression that the 
American girl is too superficial. 
Her make-up and dress are in poor 
taste. The French girl uses only 
some cosmetics and knows how to 
use them. I seldom meet a bril- 
liant American girl." 

"In general, I am enthusiastic 
about the life and atmosphere in 
the States. One thing I regret is 
that Americans are easy to ap- 
proach but very difficult to make 
friends with. 

"I have the feeling that apathy 
in politics is typical. We have a- 
bout 50 parties and I don't know 
which to vote for. In France, it's 
principles, not compromise. A 
small group of Frenchmen are in- 
terested in politics. They make a 
lot of noise. France is about 43 
per cent Communist. About 10 per 
cent have Communist ideas, but

"Wlienever the French want 
agreement they give DeGaulle 
power. He is a dictator, which is 
contrary to what the French want. 
They refuse him the title of dic- 
tator and yet they give him the 
rights. In politics, everything is 
based on the army. DeGaulle uses 
words — that is his power. He has 
a kind of halo which protects 

What about an economic union 
of Europe? 

"The Frenchman is interested 
in his own life. He wants to buy 
what he wants. He knows that if 
there is a free market he can get 
what he wants. Provided that 
there's no war, I believe that the 
Common Market and Outer Seven

Edgar Curtis Conducts Tri-City Symphony Concert; 
First Performance, Soloists Highlights Of Evening 


It is not often that a Williams- 
town audience witnesses a musi- 
cal event such as the one present- 
ed last Friday evening at Chapin 
Hall. Edgar Curtis is an excep- 
tional conductor and his program 
was well chosen. The "Concerto in 
D for String Orchestra with Solo 
Trumpet" by Guiseppe Torelli il- 
lustrated the cooperation of musi- 
cal talents which characterized the

Bill Collins Prepares Toulouse-Lautrec Exhibition 

with the opening of the Clark 
Alt Museum on Tuesday, March 
1st BUI Collins also opened to 
the public a new show in the 
downstairs gallery. Collins, for- 
mally known as the Curator of 
Piints and Drawings, but better 
known as "Bill." has once again 
maiic use of the dusty material 
hidden in the vaults of the mu- 
seum to present the public with 
a Milled collection of the works 
of I'oulouse-Lautrec, equally fa- 
mous as a painter and illustrator. 

laiilrec was born in 1864 and 
died in 1901- He never passed 4 
feel i> inches in height, due to 
accuienls in which he broke his 
leg.s and they never healed cor- 
i-eci:.v. He began painting at the 
age of 14 and continued until his 
dea'li in 1901. He lived a life of 
quc:ionable morality, being, as 
Col: lis said, a "real boozer", and 
spc: t many of his nights in the 

increa.sed and in the next 10 years 
he produced 367 lithographs 

Collins has put four paintings, 
six drawings, and twenty-two lith- 
ographs out for exhibit, which 
cover most of the phases of Lau- 
trec's artistic career. These in- 
clude a pencil sketch of two hor- 
ses, done when the artist was 
still in his teens; and the last of 
his popular posters, one done of 
Jane Avril, a famous French com- 
medienne, in 1896. 

Lautrec is equally famous for 
his paintings and his illustrations. 
As an illustrator, Lautrec did sev- 
eral posters and .song book 
covers. Some of his appeal as an 
illustrator stemmed from his sa- 
tiric qualities. One of the litho- 
graphs on exhibit, of the famous 
commedieiine Yvette Guilbert. 
done in 1893, almost got him in 
trouble — a slate he was not un- 
used to. After .seeing the carica- 

bornellos of Paris. He did not take ' lure she referred to him as the 
up illiography until 1892, when ; "little monster," and attempted 
he ".as commissioned to do a pos- : to bring suit against him. Despite 
ter for the Moulin Rouge. After his popularity, a big Lautrec art 
thai his interest in lithography show was never put on during his 

life. It was about ten years after 
his death that the first exhibi- 
tion was held.

al that a conductor can raise a 
36 piece orchestra to such splen- 
did heights with such apparent 
ease. Nowadays we are apt to 
equate greatness in conducting 
with showmanship. In the middle 
section of Beethoven's first move- 
ment, in the concluding Allegro 
vivace, and in the horn, clarinet, 
and cello trio in the Minuet, Ed- 
Kar Curtis proved himself a not- 
able exception to this popular rule. 
Williams Collesp was for- 
tunate in having the oppor- 
tunity to hear a fine small 
orchestra directed by a talent- 
ed cuiuluetor. What is unfor- 
tunate, however, was that 
more people did not avail 
themselves of this opportuni- 
ty. I think they would have 
been surprised to find them- 
selves somewhat delighted.

Wardi, Head Of WCC, 
Views Role Of Chapel 

This i.v the third in a scries of (■xtriictirriciilur tutivities at 
Williaiiis. Conducted hi/ iiieinhers of the RECORD stuff, the scries 
is (III (ittcmpl to discover the function and udiditij of tliese or- 
Hunizations and their conlrihiitions to Widianis life. 
"The WCC is supposedly the 
Christian religious organization 
on campus. The only way a Chris- 
tian organization can be effecticve 
is to work within a Christian 
framework; the only real way that 
this can be accomplished is 
through a church. The College 
Chapel is not a church because it 
is nondcnominational and because 
it must work in a compulsory 
framework. It is difficult for the 
WCC to reach out to the whole 

These are the words of Rik 
Waich, who as new board chair- 
man finds himself at the head of 
an organization in search of a 
role. "The Chapel should be a du- 
al thing." he said. "It must find 
a way to express itself to the cam- 
pus at large, and to those who 
are deeply concerned with reli- 
gious matters." The Chapel is fac- 
ed with the problem of having to 
.serve tlie entire college and at 
the same time attracting to itself 
a small group which is primarily 
interested in religion. According 
to Warch and others concerned 
with the Chapel, it has not in the 
past been able to meet the chal- 
lenge posed by this situation. 
Board members character- 
ize tlie all- college approach 
as "horizontal," and the prob- 
lem of providing content for 
serious participants as "ver- 
tical." Jack He'iser, Vice 
Chairman in charge of Wor- 
ship, feels that the board 
should be "stressing the verti- 
cal rather than the horizon- 
tal. Last year we began to go 
internal — we initiated many 
new things, but we still did 
not go far enough to open 
new areas to the truly inter- 
ested." Warch added that the 
Chapel must go more deeply 
into the vertical without ne- 
glecting the horizontal. 
"We have a better chance this 
year than any previous board in 
finding and fulfilling our role. The 
board now has the kind of diver- 
sity of members that It has long 
been lacking," Warch stated. 
Fred Noland, a member of last 
year's board, commented that 
"with the nucleus of a new more 
practical group who realize what 
they are up against, there is a 
real opportunity." 

The newly elected Chapel Board 
consists of Warch; Heiser; Mike 
Dively. Vice Chairman in charge 
of Membership; John Leech, 
Treasurer; Bob Henry, Secretary; 
Joe Bassett, Publicity; John 
Schoaff, Chest Fund; Phil Wirth, 
Freshmen; Mike Brimmer, Inter- 
college; Jack Kroh, and Ned 
Shaw. Boys Club; Glen Thurow; 
Deputations; and Phil Reynolds 
and Stu Brown, Special Events. 
Warch pointed out that the 
new board was an attempt to 
get outside a given group. 
"We have tried to get new 
people," he said, "people 
who haven't been vivid par- 
ticipants, in order to get a 

Mr. and Mrs. Coffin 

broader range. Our member- 
ship is rather an amorphous 
group anyway.'' 

Activities such as the Chest 
Fund, Daily Chapel and the up- 
coming PARS Weekend were cit- 
ed as affecting the campus at 
large. The PARS Weekend will 
bring to Williams Charles Malik, 
former President of the United 
Nations, and many foreign 

"We want to have this type 
of relationship with the cam- 
pus as a whole, and a much 
deeper relationship with a 
certain group," stated Chair- 
man Warch. "However, our 
only real continuous contact 
is in Daily Chapel, which 
many students attend to re- 
group themselves. The Cha- 
pel too often acts like a dart, 
pricking infrequently, and 
then withdrawing." 
The new board is interested in 
the idea of forming a church-in- 
campus for the small group of stu- 
dents who are deeply interested 
in religion. This would be a com- 
munity of interests open to all. 
It might be more meaningful to 
students than either the regular 
College Chapel which must appeal 
to the campus as a whole, or the 
Churches in town, which are not 
ultimately concerned with talk- 
ing to students."

Swimming Team 
Wins Little Three 

Putting the topping on another 
successful dual meet season, the 
Williams swimming team regis- 
tered that all important win over 
Amherst Saturday to capture their 
eighteenth successive Little Three 
Championship. The crushing 57- 
29 triumph closed the season led- 
ger at 7 wins and 2 defeats. 

The Mermen jumped to an ear- 
ly 7-0 lead in the 400 yd. medley 
relay and were never headed. Pete 
Ryan, Buck Robinson, Neil De- 
vaney, and Mike Dively turned in 
a 4:09.7 clocking to take the event. 
Terry Allen accounted for wins in 
220 yd. freestyle and 200 yd. back- 
stroke. The versatile junior was 
timed in 2:19.1 and 2:20 respec- 
tively. Tom Herschbach, Bob 
Reeves, Dave Coughlin, Robinson, 
and Devaney were also victorious 
in their specialties. 

Leading by a slim four point 
margin, it took a freestyle relay 
victory by John Moran, Pete We- 
ber, Carol Connard, and Dave 
Larry to give the Eph freshmen 
a 44-33 win over the Jeff frosh 
and the Little Three title. Co- 
captain Larry won the 50 freestyle 
and 100 yd. butterfly in 23.6 and 
60.4, respectively, while co-cap- 
tain Moran swam to a first place 
in the 100 yd. freestyle in 53.8.

After overcoming an early Wes-

man basketball team rolled to an 
easy 92-75 victory over Wesleyan 
here on Saturday. It was the thir- 
teenth victory in 14 outings for 
the powerful frosh combine and 
marked their third victory with- 
out defeat in Little Three compe- 

The frosh, who trailed by 6 
points 19-13 after 10 minutes of 
play, opened up a comfortable 14 
point halftim'j margin largely due 
to the fine scoring of Roger Wil- 
Lims, who netted 26 points, and 
Gorden Davis, who ended the 
night with 20. After this they 
V. ere never headed, staying safely 
ahead far the rest of the game. 

The Purple frosh, by virtue of 
this victory, clinch the Little 
Three jhampionship, even though 
they still have another contest 
with Amherst next Saturday. Pre- 
vious to that, however, they play

Frosh Wrestlers Drop 
Match To Jeffs 19-11 

In their last dual meet of the 
season the Williams freshman 
wrestling team was defeated by 
the Amherst freshmen, 19-11. The 
Eph team will be taking a 2-4 rec- 
ord into the New Englands this 
Friday, where they hope to place 
higher than comparative ratings 
would indicate. 

Jim Moody and Jim Beiber, co- 
captains, came through as usual 
against Amherst, Moody with an 
impressive pin in the early second 
period. Larry Bauer, maintained 
his undefeated record with a vic- 
tory in the 147 lb. class. All three 
are expected to be strong con-

Berkshire Singers Present Concert; 
Robert Barrow Conducts Chorale 

1)1/ Hub Gibson 
With Music Professor Robert Barrow condiictiiijr, the Berk- 
shire Siiif^ers will present a concert this evening at 8:30 in Clui- 
pin Hall. The program will consist of Gabriel Faurc's Requicin, Per- 
iolosi's Stabat Mater and Buxe- 

liude's Missa Brevis. 

The famous Requiem, will be 
i)resented with two soloists and 
full orchestral accompaniment. It 
I.S generally regarded as one of the 
ihree greatest requiem masses ev- 
I r written. Stabat Mater is a well- 
known work for women's voices 
unly. Three movements of this se- 
lection will be performed. Missa 
Brevis consists of two movements, 
Kyrie and the Gloria in Excelsia, 
laken from the Roman Catholic 

The Berkshire Singers are a 
mixed group of 30 voices from 
Berkshire county. They are the 
cream of the 90-member Berk- 
shire Choral Society which dis- 
banded two years ago. Tonight will 
be the first concert by the Sing- 
ers in Williamstown. This concert 
is part of a five-concert tour 
throughout New England. 

Director Barrow has had wide 
experience as a leader of choral 
Kroups. He conducted the Berk- 
shire Choral Society for more than 
ten years and has led other groups 
all over New England. For several 
years he directed the Williams 
Glee Club. 

Two soloists, John Horner, bari- 
tone and Nancy Muntzing, 
soprano, will perform with the 
Singers. Horner, a Williams 
graduate in 1951, appeared here 
last year in a solo recital as part 
of the Thompson Concert Series. 

The Singers will be accompanied 
by an orchestra of 25 players tak- 
en from the Berkshire Community 
and Tri-City Symphonies. 

Tickets, priced one dollar, can 
be purchased at the College Book 
Store or at the door. 

^evo York Designer, 
Patton Campbell To 
Supervise AMT Play 

Patton Campbell, professional 
designer, will supervise the Wil- 
liams College Adams Memorial 
Theatre production of George Ber- 
nard Shaw's "Caesar and Cleo- 

Campbell will be in charge of 
the scenery, costumes, and light- 
ing for the production of Shaw's 
classic play, which will be present- 
ed March 10, 11, and 12 by a com- 
bined student-faculty-townspeople 
cast of over fifty. 

Mr. Campbell arrived here Wed- 
nesday after attending the New 
York opening of "There Was a 
Little Girl." The costumes which 
he designed for the play were 
praised by the reviewers. He has 
been costume or scenic designer 
for twelve New York productions. 

This will be the first time that 
a professional Broadway designer 
has supervised a college produc- 
tion. Previously all phases of the 
college production were done by 
students, with some volunteer as- 
sistance. Starting last September, 
however, qualified area specialists 
were hired to handle various single 

Houghton Donates $2,000 

Williams College has receiv- 
ed a $2,000 check from Ray- 
mond C. Houghton, manager of 
Sears Roebuck Co. in Pitts- 
field, as part of that company's 
participation in the National 
Merit Scholarship Program. 
The grant was received by 
Charles A. Poehl, Jr., Williams 
treasurer, earlier this week 
when Mr. Houghton visited the 
campus and met the five Na- 
tional Merit Scholars currently 
studying at Williams. 

Byers Will Head 
Career Weekend 

The Career Weekend Commit- 
tee for 1960-1961 will be headed by 
John Byers '61, it was announced 
last week. Assisting Undergradu- 
ate Chairman Byers will be George 
Reath, '61, Eric Widmer '61, Rick 
Gilbert '61, Fred Noland '61, Dave 
Brown '61, Bruce Grinnell '62, Rob 
Durham '62, Skip Rutherford '62, 
Gordon Murphy '63, and Stu 
Brown '63. 

The undergraduate committee 
works with the alumni chairman 
and Placement Director Manton 
Copeland '39 to find out exact- 
ly what the students want to 
hear during the weekend and to 
publicize it. The weekend is timed 
to start the business recruiting 

Members of the present commit- 
tee, and of the retiring committee, 
which was headed by Sandy 
Smith '60, have made the follow- 
ing suggestions for the future: 1) 
a longer time for questions and 
answers at the end of each panel 
discussion. 2) a wish for more 
younger men, in training pro- 
grams, to offset the more detach- 
ed older men who are experts in 
tlieir field, 3) a greater amount of 
senior participation, especially at 
the informal Friday night open 
house, 4) a military panel only 
every three or four years, unless 
there is a spjcial demand for it. 

Moreover: 5) arranging invita- 
tions for the panelists and their 
wives to various fraternities for 
supper, 6) sending out to the pan- 
elists a short list of pertinent 
points (salary, advancement, etc.) 
to be covered in their talks, and 
7) an opening talk or lecture Fri- 
day night by such a man as Vance 

Copeland, who has taken active 
interest in the Weekend during 
the last 4 years, commented, "The 
level of the panelists performance 
was truly fine; we have incited 
their interest to the extent that 
they have gotten together or cor- 
responded beforehand and are 
thus well prepared." 

New chairman Byers, Guliel- 
mensian editor-in-chief, is a Juni- 
or Advisor, and, as President of 
the Psi Upsilon house, a member 
of the Social Council.

Broadway Lyricist S. Sondheim, '50 
Conducts A One Way Conversation 

"Musical theatre is heading a- 
way from the classic .style of musi- 
cal comedy. I think that serious 
characters can be integrated with 
serious music and the result will 
be entertaining," claimed Steve 
Sondheim, '50, lyricist for Broad- 
way hits, "West Side Story," and 
"Gypsy," in his informal talk last 
Monday in Baxter Hall. 

"A lyricist by trade and a song 
writer by ambition." is the way 
the outspoken Sondheim describ- 
ed himself at the start of his one 
and a half hour "one way conver- 
sation." In the course of his one 
man marathon talk, which traced 
his career in show business after 
his graduation, he told of the new 
direction the theatre was taking, 
encouraged young writers to "aim 
high"; described the conception 
and embryonic stages of "West 
Side Story", tracing it from Jerry 
Robbins' first idea to opening 
night; gave frank, penetrating 
character sketches of three men, 
whom he termed as "among the 
most talented in the musical, 
field," Arthur Laurents, writer, 
Leonard Bernstein, composer and 
Robbins, choreographer; described 
"Gypsy" currently on Broadway; 

CAESAR AND CLEOPATRA' details are ironed out by Robert T. 
Mathews (standing), assistant to the director of th«jW''X'r?!."'Tn'll 
Theatre, who will direct Shaw's comedy at the AMT March 10-12, 
and Thomas Griswold, assistant professor of music who will portray 
Pothinus. AMT director Giles Playfair and hU wife, Ann, star, (see 
story on this pace). 

and stated his views on everything 
from "tenors who all move like 
walking traction cases" to Rod- 
gers and Hammerstein. 

Collaborating with Laurents, 
Bernstein, and Robbins for "West 
Side Story," Sondheim told of the 
two years of tedious work which 
went into preparing the sliow. "We 
would average three weeks per 
song," he claimed, "working seven 
days a week, and averaging 10 
hours of work per day."* After 
finally arriving at a title for a 
song, we would (Bernstein and he) 
each get a start in our own di- 
rection. Leonard would have a 
little of the melody and I a few 
of the lyrics at our next meeting, 
and we worked from there."

Poll Analysts Survey 
Hew Political Trends 

Ithiel de Sola Pool, Professor of 
Political Science at M. I. T., and 
Robert Abelson, Professor of Psy- 
chology at Yale, will speak on 
"Trends and Constancies in Politi- 
cal Opinion" in Griffin Hall at 
4:00 p. m. Tuesday. 

During the past few years the 
two professors have analyzed data 
from approximately ninety sur- 
veys taken through the Roper and 
Gallup polls. In this lecture they 
will analyze the responsiveness of 
different social and economic 
groups to foreign and domestic is- 
sues in an attempt to discover 
whether or not the major politi- 
cal orientation of various segments 
of the population remain constant 
over a period of time. 

Pool is the chairman of the Pol- 
itical Science Department at 
M. I. T. and director of "The Re- 
search Program in International 
Communication" at the Center for 
International Studies. Since 1951, 
he has acted as consultant to the 
Rand Corporation. He has also 
written several books, including: 
The Prestige Papers; Symbols of 
Democracy; and Satellite Gener- 

Ableson is a Fellow at the Cen- 
ter for Advanced Study in the 
Behavioral Sciences, 1957-1958, 
and formerly a Psychometric Pel- 
low at the Educational Testing 
Service. He has written numerous 
articles on attitude measurement 

The lecture, sponsored by the 
Political Science Department and 
the Roper Research Center, Is 
open to the public. 

Chaplain Lawrence P. De Boer, Is 
"aimed at a discussion and under- 
standing of the problem of the 
unity of the Christian church". 
The twenty-five students spend 
one year of study in the United 
States at Union Theological Sem- 


The Friday night panel discus- 
sion deals with "How the Christ- 
ian faith confronts the university 
setting throughout the world" and 
will feature three panelists: Mr. 
Ernst Baker, student pastor at 
the University of Utrecht, Hol- 
land; Miss Joan Macneil, field 
secretary of the Australian Stu- 
dent Christian Movement; and 
the Rev. Peter Ping Kang Hsieh, 
dean of Trinity Theological col- 
lege in Singapore. 

The final event of the weekend 
is the Sunday Chapel service when 
Dr. Charles Malik will speak. 
Malik, who spoke at last June's 
commencement excercises, is the 
former president of the United 
Nations General Assembly & For- 
eign Minister of Lebanon. 


The students will be entertain- 
ed throughout the weekend by the 
student body and the townspeople. 
They will spend Saturday after- 
noon at the fifteen fraternities 
and Sunday lunch with the twelve 
freshman entries. 

De Boer expressed his hope that 
the student body would take the 
opportunity to talk with the for- 
eign students. This will not only 
promote an understanding of uni- 
versal religious problems, he com- 
mented, but can aid the visitors in 
understanding the intellectual and 
social atmosphere of American 
college life. 

Lawrence Displaying 
Gay Nineties Posters 

"Distinctly popular art. The art 
forms, stemming somewhat from 
the influence of Toulous Lautrec 
are vastly overshadowed by the 
French master but are valuable 
examples of popular illustrations 
of the period". 

This was art department chair- 
man S. L. Faison's comment on 
the exhibit of Gay Nineties post- 
ers to be shown March 3 through 
19 at the Lawrence Art Museum. 

Titled "Theatrical Posters of the 
Gay Nineties", the exhibit affords 
a recollection of the old Broad- 
way stage of the "Gaslight Era" 
including once famous names like 
William Gillette, Anna Held, and 
Florenz Ziegfeld. 

Since the posters were to appeal 
to the popular mind, they are not 
great artistic works, but somewhat 
analagous to Broadway playbills 
today. However, the Illustrations 
possess a Victorian style and sub- 
ject matter which makes them 
quite delightful to the modern 

The collection is a circulated ex- 
hibit distributed by the Smithsoni- 
an Institute in Washington and 
is from the collection of the Li- 
brary of Congress. 

Harvard Lawyer To Speak 

Louis Toepfer, Vice-Dean of 
the Harvard Law School, will 
hold an informal discussion of 
graduate law studies and the 
legal career on Monday night 
from 7:30 to 9:30 at the Faculty 
House. Toepfer has visited Wil- 
liams several times during the 
last few years.

Religion faces the world To The Editor of the RECORD: 

Does Christianity make sense in the 20th century? 
Is lehj^ion any more relevant to someone not liv- 
injf in the high-consumption society of the orjj;ani- 
zation man and the status seekers? Is it just our 
canijjus or our society which makes that hour on 
Sunday seem to have very little connection to the 
rest of the week? 

Underdeveloped, socialisic, or fast-growing coun- 
tries are the homes of the students and educators 
visiting Williamstown this weekend. At a dinner- 
Friday night and in fraternity discussions Satur- 
day afternoon they will explore and debate the 
relevance of religion in other iiockets of civiliza- 

These visitors from Union Seminary, studying 
under the Program for Advanced Religious Stud- 
ies, know Christianity in a completely different 
setting from ours— one which William Whyte and 
Vance Packard have never seen. 




Frosh in houses 

The problem of allowing freshmen in fraternity 
houses came up again in Tuesday night's Social 
Council "meeting" when Jerry Campaigne, who is 
helping to organize the Critical Affairs, asked if 
freshmen could be admitted to houses for discus- 
sions following the weekend panels. 

The assembled house presidents voted down a 
pro|3osal to assign one freshman entry to each 
house as being contrary to accepted procedure in 
rushing. Such a decision, given the circumstances 
of the Williams fraternity setu]), was wise, be- 
cause it would allow freshmen to form an opinion 
of the assembled members of a house. Also 
houses, without the deterrent provided in the 
previous syni]30sia of having members of other 
fraternities present, might be tempted to dirty 

It would be unfortunate, however, to comi^letely 
deny freshmen access to houses on that weekend 
because of the benefits upperelassmen could de- 
rive from the intellectual contact with freshmen 
and vice versa. It is to be hoped, then, that the 
weekend committee can work out some solution, 
preferably combining several houses for the dis- 
cussions and allowing freshmen to attend. 


NCAA: Why Not? 

For the past week or so, all the local news- 
jiapers lune been speculating on the Williams 
basketball team s being invited to its second con- 
secutive NC.'VA Small College Tournament. Last 
Thursday it became known that the bid was ours 
if we wanted it; last Thursday it also became 
known that the Faculty Committee on Athletics 
had turned thumbs down. We would like to know 

Opposition to such events? Hardly. Our 
swimming, wrestling, golf and tennis teams com- 
pete in the New Englands every year, good or 
bad. We hosted the NCAA golf championshijjs 
last year; this year NCAA tennis will be played 
at Williams. 

Traveling distance? The Northeast Tourney 
is being held in Winooski, Vt., just as last year. 
VVinooski is 140 miles away, a distance compara- 
ble to that between Williams and Coast Guard. . . 
or Army. . .or Harvard. . .or MIT. . .not to men- 
tion Colby and Bowdoin! 

Williams is constantly bemoaning its in- 
ability to get adequate publicity through sports. 
Hardly strange, turning down tournamont bids! 
If the adverse publicity of a loss worries the com- 
mittee, let them take a look at the New York 
Times S]5read given Bobby Adams and the soc- 
cer team after their heartbreaking NCAA loss to 

And would we lose? Last year Williams sent 
a team that had hit its j^eak a month before the 
tournament— a team which was going downhill— 
a team which had just lost to Wesleyan. This 
year Williams refuses to send a team that has 
won eight of its last nine— a team near the top of 
the C'ountry in foul shooting— a team greatly 
strengthened by the recent return of Sam Weaver 
—a team which belted Wesleyan by twenty points 
in a beautiful exhibition of basketball! 

We feel that if the NCAA considers Williams 
((ualified for its tournament, no five-man faculty 
committee should rule otherwise without good 
reason. When the NCAA looked elsewhere for a 
New England representative, St. Michael's (Vt. ) 
was not so squeamish. Yet look at St. Mike's rec- 
ord—eleven and nine! Look at Williams' record 
—13 and 7! We would like an answer from the 
Faculty Athletic Committee. Why didn't Williams

To The Editor: 

Better Than McKay 

Congratulations to Campaigne 
'02 for the most clear-headed, con- 
cise exposition of American con- 
versatism in some time. Better 
than former Secretary McKay- 
better even than Buckley. 

Isn't the crux of the loyalty 
oath issue the question whether 
a student must promise not to 
break the law before getting aid? 
Since forcible overthrow of the 
government is Illegal already, isn't 
the loyalty oath just plain super- 

One cannot help being struck 
by the ludicrous aspect of sing- 
ling out a group— whether stu- 
dents, government employees, or 
the DAR — and requiring of Its 
members an oath to refrain from 
doing something already more 
severely punishable than would be 
the breaking of the oath.

Local Churches Seek 
More Student Interest 

by Bill Anderson 

The Coiiirrc^atioiial, tin- Methodist, and the Baptist churches 

liave no official college rch^ious organi/atioii.s .such as tlie New- 

iiian Chih or the Student Vestry ])ut do try to |)aiticipate actively 

in the religious life of the college. 

.t^^^^^^^^Vm^^^^^^^^B The Congregational chui-ch has 

no college program of its own but 
does enjoy the largest student at- 
tendance on Sunday, due mainly 
to its convenient location. 


Reverend Robert Foster, com- 
menting on the position and at- 
titude explained, "We are actual- 
ly a community church. Most of 
our attendance, both from the 
college and from the town, is in- 
terdenominational. We do not have 
a purely Congregational organiza- 
tion and prefer not to stress de- 

The church is affiliated with 
t,he WCC and cooperates with the 
Chapel in such programs as the 
PARS Weekend. Also, five college 
students of various denominations 
help run the church youth fellow- 


The Methodist Church tries to 
establish a closer rapport between 
college student and the church. 
Seeing only a dozen or so students 
at the Sunday service, compared to 
over fifty at the Congregational 
church, minister Lee Oliver has 
succeeded in organizing a weekly 
Bible study group. He has also had 
students assist him in the service 
and has held an after-church 
discussion of the Sunday sermon. 

In a program similar to that of 
the Congregational church, the 
Methodists employ college stu- 
dents of various denominations in 
work with their junior and senior 
fellowships and in the church 

The Baptist church presently 
has no affiliation with the college. 
Pastor of the church Samuel 
Graham tried last year to organ- 
ize a college student organization. 
He held discussions with a small 
group of non-Baptist students in- 
terested in the Baptist religion. 
The project ended in failure when 
the group rather abruptly broke 
up. Since that time no one from 
the college has attended the 

Student interest and participa- 
tion indicate that the Methodist 
church has the closest ties with 
college students. Reverend Oliver 
commented, "I am very happy 
with the church-college relation- 
ship. Students become part of the 
life of the church, and a number 
of college boys have gone into the 
ministry from here. 

Among the three churches there 
is little or no drawing of denomi- 
national lines. Each attracts stu- 
dents from other denominations as 
much as from its own.

FRIDAY, MAR. 4, 1960 



Intramural All Stars — Clockwise: Len Krosney, Kevin Tierney, 
Pete Guy, Tommy Boydcn, Harry Hagey, and Ollie Banks. 

All Star Six Features 
Speed, Agility, Defence 

The Record Intramural All-Star Hockey team coiLsistinj; ot 
Pete Guy in ^oi\\, Ke\in Tierney and Harry llaj^cv at defense, 
and Tom Boyden, Ollie Banks, and L,en Krosney at line features 
a strong seorinu; |iuncli, both from the line and defensive posts. 
All members of the starting sex- 

tet played in high school. Len 
Krosney played two years on the 
varsity at New Rochelle High 
making the All- Westchester Coun- 
ty team in his senior year. With 
a year of freshman hockey under 
his belt, Len leads the Phi Sig's 
with 15 goals and 5 assists. 

Boyden played four years of 
varsity hockey at Hotchkiss, lead- 
ing the team in scoring his senior 
year. Two years ago he scored the 
hat trick when Hotchkiss handed 
the Williams frosh their only de- 

Goalie Pete Guy has guarded the 
AD nets for the past three years. 
For the freshmen, he held a 
powerful Harvard freshman team 
to 4 goals, the lowest total they 
scored all season. 

Harry Hagey plays defense for 
the successful Greylock squad, who 
boast a 5-2 record, including 4 
shutouts. Hard-hitting Kevin 
Tierney, at the other defensive 
spot, boasts three years intramural 
and one year freshman experience. 
Ollie Banks, a product of the 
Brown and Nichols hockey sys- 
tem, adds a wicked shot and dog- 
ged backchecking to the squad.

Mermen Co-Favorites 
In New England Meet 

The Williams swimming team 
travels to Storrs, Conn, this week- 
end to defend their New England 
swim crown. The Ephmen, handi- 
capped as usual by a lack of man- 
power, will be co-favored with 
Springfield and Brown. The team 
sports a record ot 7 wins and 2 
defeats, after defeating the Uni- 
versity of Connecticut, Monday, 
52-34, in a re-scheduled meet. 

Two of Williams' four New 
England individual crowns will al- 
so be defended. Buck Robinson, 
the New England record-holder in 
the 200 yd. breast stroke, will be 
favored to repeat in his specialty. 
Springfield's Eno Kaany, who fin- 
ished very close to the Eph co- 
captain, when they met earlier in 
the season, will provide the great- 
est cliallenge. 

Co-captain Neil Devaney is 
heavily favored to retain his 100 
yd. butterfly crown. Earlier this 
season, Devaney shattered the 
College and pool mark for the 
butterfly with a 57.5 clocking. 
Both Devaney and Robinson will 
figure heavily in the fortunes of 
the Eph 400 yd. medley relay team, 
which has been undefeated in 
competition this season thus far. 

Junior Terry Allen is slated to 
rival Springfield's Tom Carring- 
ton for the 200 yd. backstroke 

first stop 

of the carriage trade since 1844

and fine French perfumes

Eph Five Top Union; 
Face Jeffs Saturday 

The Williams College basket- 
ball team won Its sixth consecu- 
tive game romping 88-54 over 
Union Tuesday night at Schenec- 
tady. Good shooting, a tight man- 
to-man defense, and strong re- 
bounding enabled the Ephs to open 
up a 20 point lead midway through 
the first half. Williams was never 
again threatened by the slow, in- 
ept Union quintet. 

The Ephmen hit forty-five per- 
cent of their field goal attempts 
primarily on driving lay-ups or 
short jump shots. Using an out- 
side weave, the Ephs were fre- 
quently able to shake loose sharp- 
shooting Bob Mahland for baskets. 
Bob Montgomery and Pete Mul- 
hausen encountered little defen- 
sive resistance and the team as a 
whole had little difficulty in scor- 
ing their ninth victory in ten 

The Ephmen face the Lord Jeffs 
at Amherst Saturday night in the 
season's windup. The Williams 
squad, which will be at full 
strength for the encounter, will 
enter the game as favorites. The 
Jeffs will probably be without the 
services of their 6' 5" center and 
high scorer Fred Sayles. 

All five Eph starters tallied in 
double figures against Amherst.

Four Squash Players 
To Enter Tournament 

The top four players on Wil- 
liams' squash team will journey 
to Amherst this weekend to parti- 
cipate in the annual Intercollegi- 
ate tourney. The Eph team, ten- 
tively ranked fourth nationally, 
will place its hopes in big Greg 
Tobin, who was personally ranked 
fourth in the U. S. last year. 

Tobin, 7-4 on the season, will be 
accompanied by John Bowen (7 
4), Clyde Buck (6-5), and Pete 
Beck with <9-2). The top-ranked 
squad in the tournament will be 
undefeated Harvard. 

Individually the men to watch 
will be Princeton's Steve Vehs- 
lage, unbeaten for the season and 
winner of last year's tourney, and 
second-seeded Sonny Howe of 
Yale, who finished behind Vehs 
lage last year and lost only to 
him this season (a 3-2 match). 
Harvard's No. 1 individual Jerry 
Emmet will probably be seeded 
third, before Tobin. 

Other top stars include Jim 
Zug, No. 2 Princeton man, unde- 
feated this year. Also Tim Gall- 
wey, Harvard; John Bates, Am- 
herst; Don Mills, Trinity; and Bob 
O'Connell, Army.

¥rosh Rout Union 
For Twelfth Triumph 

The Williams freshmen five 
chalked up their twelfth victory 
in 13 games with an easy 73-54 
win over the Union freshmen 
Tuesday night at Schenectady. 
The victory was "a very outstand- 
ing team effort in every respect," 
according to Coach Bobby Coombs. 

Ball control and rebounding 
strength of the taller Ephmen was 
important in the win, but the out- 
standing feature ot the game was 
their shooting accuracy. Using a 
slow, deliberate type of offense, 
the Purple hit a brilliant 47 per 
cent of their shots from the floor. 
By working the ball in close for 
almost every shot, they netted 16 
out ot 25 floor shots in the last 
half alone. 

The scoring for Williams was 
well distributed among several 
players. Dan Voorhees was high 
with 17 points, followed by three 
others with over ten apiece.

Nine Juniors Get 
Mead Fund Grant 

Henry N. Flynt Jr., '44 Directov 
of Student Aid, announced Satur- 
day the winners of the 19B0 Mead 
Fund grants for the Washinslon 
Summer Intern Program. They 
are Ben Campbell, Allan Dcmb, 
Edward Gramlich, Martin Linsky. 
Paul Mer.sereau, Robert Montgom- 
ery, Andrew Morehead, David Ten- 
ney and Eric Widmer. 

The nine juniors were chosen by 
a faculty committee on the basis 
of academic performance post- 
graduate plans and a statement 
on what the applicant expected to 
gain from the experience of work- 
ing in government. The committee 
consisted of Professors Scott, 
Gates and Greene of the history, 
economics and political science 
departments respectively and Mr. 


The winners will now write to 
the individials or agencies in 
Washington for which they want 
to work and will be interviewed 
during Spring vacation. Last 
year's eleven winners worked for

Malik Stresses Peace 
Through Christianily 

"If von think that the oifended anil Juut feeliiitf (that exists 

in today's world) will he soothed through diplomac\' . 
technical assistance or just sittini^ hack and heiu'j; a nice 
then you don't know human na- 
ture. Only the cross that offended 
and scandalized the world can 
patch our bitter feelings." 

Dr. Charles Malik made this 
plea for a stronger church before 
a capacity audience at the Vesper 
liiapel service Sunday afternoon. 
Malik, once president of the 
I'niled Nations General Assembly, 
was the featured speaker of the 
WCC's PARS weekend. 

"Creation is dormant until it is 
;i wakened by a thrust from the 
hand of God." This awakening 
'akes two steps: an earnest cx- 
; "'ctation of the possibility of the 
•'.ory and liberty of being a child 
"f God, and the fulfillment that 
• ollows this expectation. "When 
i!iere is an expectation and a 
■ ilfillment. the thrust causes an 
I iiormous disturbance. The Christ- 
ian provokes an offence against 
Mic world because the world does 
not want to see God, Christianity 
alienates the world because the 
■' orld does not want to be saved . . . 
It wants to drift toward nothing- 

There is a fight against sin 
■'.ithin each person and in the 
world at large. This fight is ulti- 
mately provoked by the thrust of 
God. "God did this in order to 
bring the world to its senses. Do 
not be ashamed of the cross be- 
cause God alone removes the sting 
of his own provocation." 

Malik pointed out that the same 
types of people exist today as In 
Je.sus' time. The same conflicts 
tend to disrupt the world and the 
same forces tear at each man's 
soul. The Church's only weapon 
in this continual battle against 
sin is the Gospel. 

"The fight of the Church is 
eternal. But we are at every step 
and in every circumstance deal- 
ing with the original thrust of

Schuman-Greene Session Discloses 
Misconceptions Of National Defense 

"National Delense: Illusion 
.s\nipi)sinm held last Thiusihu' 
housi'. i he two speakers tor the e 
L. Schuman and Professor Fred 

Dr. Schuman opened the discus- 
sion by saying that the persis- 
tence in the minds of national 
policy makers of "the Great Il- 
lusion" that a nation's security is 
best insured by increasing its pow- 
er to destroy other nations has re- 
sulted in two World Wars in the 
past half century and may very 
well lead to a third. In Woi'ld War 
II. bombs were 1.000 times more 
powerful than in World War I. 
Today one hydrogen bomb can 
destroy an entire ;ity and cause 
destruction of all life in surround- 
ing areas throigh lethal fall out. 
Moieover. the recent development 
01 an atomic bomb by France is 
evidence to the fact that member- 
ship in "the tliermonuelcar sui- 
cide club' is ever increasing. To 
I his th'cat of coannhilation. Pro- 
fp'^-or Schuman can see an inter- 
n.itional disarmament agreement 
as the only solution that is at all 
f asiblc under present conditions. 
He concluded by calling upon the 
peoples of the world to exert pres- 
sures upon their leaders to end 
the arms race and to bring such 
an agreement into being. 


As the second speaker of the 
evening. Dr. Greene stated that 
he would not disagree with any of 
the basic assumptions of his col- 
leagre. tic did. however, try to 
show that force could still be us- 
ed as an effective instrument in 
foreign policy. "The Russian 
leaders are rational men who will 
use force if they think that they 
can get away with it," he said. 
They will not. however, attempt to 
win a quick victory by starting a 
missile war which might destroy 
humanity. We ought, therefore, to 
operate on what he called a lower 
level of power. Rather than con- 
centrate our main defense efforts 
in protecting against surprise at- 
tack, we should spend more money 
on small tactical deployable forces 
that can be used in different areas 
in the world as "stoppers" against 
communist aggression. Professor 
Greene admitted that these were 
not very inspiring objectives. He 
felt, however, that this was the 
best that we coi:ld do under pre- 
sent world conditions.

Power To Apply 
Malthus To 1960 

In a lecture entitled "Popula- 
tion Growth and Economic Pro- 
gress" to be given Thursday at 
4:30 in the Biology Building, Pro- 
fessor J. H. Power of the Econo- 
mics Department will re-apply the 
MalthLsian theory to the present 
world situation. Malthus. an ear- 
ly nineteenth century economist, 
held that poverty is the inevitable 
result of unrestrained population 
multiplying faster than its means 
of subsistence. 

The present view is that rapid 
population growth hinders pros- 
perity in undeveloped countries 
such as India, but complements 
it in advanced countries such as 
the United States. Power will at- 
tempt to cotitradict this view by 
proving that the growth of popu- 
lation at either a rapid or a slow 
rate is a cause of unemployment 
and a drag on the economic pros- 
perity of any country. Then he 
will show that there is a real 
question whether our rigid type 
of economic system could adjust 
to a decline in the rate of popula- 
tion growth. 

fessional touches are being added 
technically by Broadway set and 
costrme designer Patton Camp- 
bell, who is -supervising the scen- 
ery, lighting, and costuming. 

"We have tried to carry Shaw's 
purpose of portraying the sublime, 
heroic, in a ridiculous light, 
through extremes in the staging, 
scenery, lighting, and costuming," 
Mathews stated, "It Is definitely 
one of his most delightful come- 
dies," he added. 

The play is Shaw's treatment of 
the historical meeting between 
Caesar and Cleopatra. Using his 
imagination he creates Caesar, as 
he thought he should be conceiv- 
ed, as the "great conqueror" who 
is sensitive about his baldness. 
Settings are simply done, so that 
the center of attention is focused 
on the play itself. 

Seniors Elect Rorke 
Permanent President 

Bob Rorke was re-elected presi- 
dent of the class of 1960 at a Sen- 
ior Class meeting last w^eek. At 
the same time Fay Vincent and 
Al Martin were elected Marshalls, 
Ron Stegall secretary, and Hal 
Smith class speaker. 

As permanent president Rorke 
will be his class' delegate to al- 
umni meetings, will plan reunions 
for his, and will advise the 
secretary and appointed class a- 
gent. The Marshalls hold an hon- 
orary post and lead the procession 
at Commencement, The perma- 
nent .secretary has the most time- 
consuming job; he writes Class 
Notes for the alumni review and 
informs his classmates of such 
events as reunions.

Anew look 

Rc'piitiitions are luircl to cliaiis^e. For the past 
few years WMS-WCFM has attoin|5tecl to add a 
little re.s|)onsil)le pronraniiniiiif to its fiin-orienled 
activities. And it hasn't been easy. Every tresh- 
man wants to be a disc jockey and make cute 
coniments over the air. 

The most vahiahle broadcastinjf hours are in 
the eveniiij;;. The after-dinner schedule now in- 
cludes classical music, jazz, recorded speeches, 
forums on critical issues, and stereo tapes. New 
ideas are iilanniiif; classical music to coincide 
with music course assii^nments and taped 
s]ieeches related to current affairs. 
Thinking of responsible proi^ramniinjf should 
have been done loni; a<fo. WCJFM has some of 
the finest facilities of any colleife radio station 
and is supported with an annual tyrant from the 
student ta.x. 

It's not (]uite so easy here as it is elsewhere. On 
large university campuses a radio station can 
perform a distinct educational service to the 
students and the community by liroadcasting 
full courses for credit and providing the only 
available reliable news source. Often stations 
have part-time salaried employees and broadcast 
from dawn to midnight. 

But Williams is a small college in a small com- 
munity. The station can only broadcast outside 
the college for a ten-mile radius on an I'M sig- 
nal, t'ew licoi^le have FM sets. 
The only future available to college radio in 
Williamstown is on 1<'M with a new reputation 
and something to gi\e to the college and com- 
nuuiitv. And even then its op|3ortunity can be no 
greater than the future of FM radio itself in an 
age of television. 



This afternoon the PAHS weekend ended before 
a ])acked house at the Thoin|5son Memorial Cha- 
pel. Most of them came to hear Cliarles Malik 
speak. Most of them were disa|)pointed because 
the combination of bad acoustics and Malik's 
heavy accent rendered him virtually incompre- 

As one who came to try to benefit from the 
knowledge of a great statesman, the rote re- 
sponses to the i^rayers which the congregation 
were asked to give were not only a letdown, but 
were meaningless. In an atmos|)here where at- 
tendance is primarily motivated by interest in 
the speaker and desire to get a chapel credit, 
the forcing of worship cannot be meaningful to 
the congregation. Parroting of phrases by those 
who are not interested in worshipping will |5ro- 
mote only total disinterest.

There ajDj^ears to be a school of thought at

antagonistic to our way of life, 
largely trying to destroy us In any

On a recent tour of soycnty million American collcKi's, 1 was 
struck by two outstandiiif; facts; first, the ^Ki\i number of 
students wlio smoke Miirlboro, and second, the Rrcat number 
of students wlio are married. 

The first plipnoiiienon— tlic vast iiiultitudi;^ of Marlboro 
smokers— conies as no for, its evcryiinc knows, the 
colk'ffo student is an enormously intelligent (irgiinisin, iind what 
could lie more intelligent than to smoke Miiriboro? ,\fter all, 
])le:isurc is what you smoke for and pleasure is wiiat Marlboro 
deli\(>rs— pleasure in every puff of that good golden tobacco. 
If yiiu think flavor went out when filters came in — try a 
Marlboro, IJglit up iiiul see for yourself ,,. Or, if you like, don't 
light ii|). ,Just take a Mnrlboni, unliglitcd, and pnIT a cimiilc of 
times, (let that wonderful flavor? Yiiu bet you do! I'^vcn with- 
out lighting you can taste Mariboro's excellent filter blend. 
Also you can make your iiackagc last practiciilly forever. 

No, I .say, it was not the great number of Marlboro sniokers 
that astounded nic, it was the great number of married students. 
You may find this hard to believe but latest statistics .show that 
at some coeducational colk^ges the ])roiiortion of married under- 
graduates runs as liigli as thirty jiereent ! And, what is even 
more startling, fully one-quarter of these marriages have been 
blessed with issue! 

Here now is a figure to give you jiausc! Not that we don't 
all love babies. Of course we do! Babies are ])ink and fetching 
rascals, given to -winsome noises and droll ex|)ressions, and we 
all like nothing better than to rain kisses on their soft little 
skulls. But just t!ie same, to the young campus coujile who are 
parents for tlie first time the baby is likely to he a source of 
consideralilc worry. Therefore, let me devote today's column 
to a few helpful hints on the care of babies. 

ti<M Crf 

'"^ndj imic( lemon ped ^ 

First of all, we will take up the matter of diet. In the past, 
babies were raised largely on table scraps. This, however, was 
outlawed by the Smoot-IIawley Act, and today babies are fed 
a scientific formula ciinsisting of dextrose, maltose, distilled 
water, e\-aporated milk and a twist of lemon peel. 

After eating, the baby tends to grow sleepy. A lullaby is \Try 
useful to help it fall asleep. In case you don't know any hdla- 
bics, make one up. Thi.s is not at all difiicult. In a lullaby the 
words are unimportant since tlic baby doesn't understandthem 
anyhow. The important thing is the sound. All you have to do 
is string together a hunch of nonsense syllables, taking care 
that they make an agrceal)le sound. For example: 
Go lo sleep, my little infant, 
Goo-goo moo-moo poo-poo hinfant. 

Having fed and serenaded the baiiy, arrange it in the position 
for shimbcr. A baby .sleeps best on its stomach so jilace it that 
way in its crib. Then to make sure it will not turn itself over 
during the night lay a soft but fairly heavy object on its back- 
another baby, for instance. © .„» „„ snutn... 

And when baby is fast asleep-the little angell-why don't 
not, relax and give yourself a treat? With Marllmro—or if you

I' rank Lhi/d and liirluinl Caiijiiilli 
Freshmen do have a definite 
pliice in the life of Williams Col- 
lege, but they are often thouslit 
of as a seiJarate division of the 
slwdent body. They liave their own 
hniising facilities, social life, and 
governing body. Opinion.s of the 
students in the Class of 1903 are 
vaiicd, but the consensus seem.s to 
piidict a bright future. 

!)ean Cole generalized on the 
areas of academic achievement 
and discipline. "This year's fresh- 
ni:n class has not placed as many 
o:; the Freshman Honor Roll as 
d.d last year's, but their overall 
a\r'rage is somewhat better. Their 
s( ; iousness of purpose and maturi- 
ty has been shown, and there are signs that there is less 'Peter 
P:in' activity than usual." 

Class president John Churchill 
said, "After serving on the College 
Ciiuncil, I think I can say that 
our class shows more enthu.siasm 
for student governmenl and col- 
le;'C activities than any other class 
at Williams. This, however, may 
bv true of every freshman class, 
and may tend to deteriorate by 
next year." 
Many of those interviewed em- 

phasized the great diversity of tal- 
ent and interest among freshmen 
lom Pox, head of the Junior Ad- 
visers, commented, "This class has 
been greatly underrated. I believe 
they are more conscientious than 
past classes have been. They have 
also proved to be far more gifted 
a hletically than anyone thought 
alter football season." 

Some members of the faculty 
were more reserved in their aj)- 
praisal. Warren Ilchman, organiz- 
er of the High Table, was "gener- 
ally plea.sed at the student's will- to talk about ideas Par 
too many, however, are willing to 
accept the status quo in follega 
affairs. They tend to look upon 
faculty members as purveyors of 
ultimate truth." 

Assistant Professor Robert Gat- 
dino finds "freshmen better able 
to talk informally with the fac- 
ulty. Like most people, they are 
enthusiastic only when you give 
them something to get enthusias- 
tic about. They do not show an 
edge of criticism, but an edge of 
caution and restraint." 

Freshmen have showed their 
versatility in various extracur- 
ricular activities. Robert Mathews, 
speaking of freshmen interest hi 
the AMT and response to theatre 
productions, said, "I hope this is 
an indication of a revival in both 
acting and attendance at the AMT. 
More freshmen than last year 
have been working here, and these 
have shown industry and a will- 
ingness to learn." Sandy Saunders, 
head of Cap and Bells, estimates

there are abort 35 freshmen par- 
ticipating this year. He feels that 
the actors have .shown much 
promise and working in the 
technical department have shown 
considerable interest, but or- 
iginality than last year's group. 


GUL editor John Byers was 
plea.sed with his compet turnout 
of 87 freshmen, the largest for 
any activity. "A large percentage 
of these have stayed on, and are 
showing creative ability." Speak- 
ing in general from his experience 
as a JA, Byers noted that "the 
spirit of the class has been shown 
in the water tights at the begin- 
ning of the year and in their fu-

8 :04 PM There's a lamp that'll got knocked ovci' later if you don't 
mo\e it. Take care of this and then lake care, since talk can Hag 
during a parly's early moments, to have a covering background of 
harnionious music. The recording to the left, with the Four Fresh- 
men and a lO-trombonc brass orchestra blending furiousl\, is har- 
monious and then some. The group just won an award in the i'layhoy 
A!l-.Slar Poll and the album includes icc-brcakcrs like Rome 66, 
Sunday, Cuinly and Laiirn; the pictinc on the back, though, could 
raise one slightly unsettling question: These guys are Jreslimeii'.' 

8:41 PM The laments in Kay Starr's new release aren't dangerously 
lugubrious and, actually, should stimulate casual entrances onto the 
dance floor. That's due to Kay's aidcnt, ringing style and the lush 
string backgroruid which is under only mild .sedation behind her. 
Anybody downcast after healing Into Fmc/i Life Some Ruin Must 
Full, I Slioidd Care, Please Don I Talk Ahoiil Mc iVIieu I'm Gone 
or the others isn't in a mood to enjoy or contribute much to things 
anyway, and might appreciate a thoughtful suggestion that there's 
probably still time to make it to the library before it closes. 

9 :22 PM If the party's billed as a "Dance," this is as good a time 
as any to find out how seriously it is meant. Put on the new Kenton 
album; it's in the lit-up Latin tradition of Peanut Vendor. Some 
numbers, like Adios, are fairly relaxed, but most— e.g., a sizzling 
new Artistry in Rliyt/mi— lent dancing prowess, It should separate 
the men from the boys. (If it separates the men from the ,i,'//7,v, try 
the music in Capitol's "Arthur Murray" scries. Sets of sambas, fo.x- 
trots, etc. with top bands and good lor pleasant, low-pressure 
dancing. Little pictures show where to put your feet,) 

10:07 PM While the blood is up, put on Ray Anthony's latest, 
"Like Wild!" The title means much the same as "It's the cat's 
pajamas" but says it faster, in keeping with today's modern, high- 
speed living. Both expressions become clear when the record is 
played, for it's a line, swinging, powerhouse of brass elTccts, some 
delectable, some almost alarming. Anthony plays new stulT and 
ones like Peter Gimn Theme, Room 43, 707 and Walkin to Mother's 
that he's already made a lot of money on as singles. An intermission 
will be needed. Who won the basketball game? 

10:49 PM What, aside from having all been great instrumenlals, 
do Snowfull, In the Mood, Poor People of Paris and Flyin' Home 
have in common? Practically nothing. What, do you suppose, docs 
this mean to Billy May? Practically nothing. He has outrageously 
spiced up the originals with flutes and things and somehow turned 
them all, plus others, into some very cheery cha-chas. Twelfth Street 
Raa-Clia-Clui, though, is unforgivable. Laugh, cry, spill something 
—you'll just have to do the best you can. 

1 1 :28 PM The Quiet Time is at hand, "Ballads for Night People" 
arc the songs Jime gets asked for most by nostalgic nightcrawlers . 
in pubs. Mostly sentimental tunes with the kind of introspective 
lyrics she sings best. While Christy lights her way in the dark with 
liewitcheil. Don't Get Around Much Any More, My Ship and others 
in that price range, some couples may wish to sit this one out, 
wending to the dimmer corners to speak softly of issues like the 
November elections, lung cancer, and so forth. The record changer 
can be set to repeat and that, perhaps, will take care of that.

Mike Bolduan, president of W- 
MS, is more than satisfied with 
freshmen participation in the col- 
lege radio station. He considers 
them a "tremendous" group, and 
is astounded at their enthusiasm. 
Bolduan declared, "They have 
both good ideas and talent. 'We 
have some excellent announcing 
voices and also some able tech- 
nicians from their class." Similar 
satisfaction was shown by John 
Mayher, editor of the RECORD. 
Mayher commented, "Tire fresh- 
men class is a particularly enthu- 
siastic and capable group. They 
are willing to work hard and have 
shown a great deal of poise and 
interest both in writing their ar- 
ticles and getting the paper to 


In the religious groups on camp- 
us freshmen participation has 
been neither singularly enthusi- 
astic nor uninterested. Rik Warch. 
head of the WCC, remarked, "In- 
sofar as there are opportunities 
for participation they have .shown 
considerable interest, but they 
don't have that many chances to 
work within our organization. 
Many freshmen, however, have 
been attending daily chapel, the 
monthly dinner meetings, and the 
discussion sessions. They have al- 
so been working at the Williams- 
town Boys' Club and at the Berk- 
shire Farms." In the Newman Club 
the freshmen have responded 
on a level above other classes, but 
there are many Catholics in the 
class of '63 who have shown no 
interest whatsoever. President Bill 
Ryan is pleased with the enthu- 
siasm of those who are active 
but would like to see a larger 


The prevailing opinion seems to 
be that the class of '63 has dis- 
tinguished itself athletically and 
will provide welcome additions to 
many varsity teams. Coach Flynt 
said, "This year's soccer team was

team it is ridiculous to maintain 
that the class is not good ath- 

Althoi gh failing to match the 
record of the Class of 1962 in foot- 
ball, freshman teams have cap- 
tured Little Three titles in bas- 
ketball, hockey, swimming, .squash, 
and tied for the championship in 

Hockey Coach Bill McCormick 
said of the freshman hockey team, 
"Prom the standpoint of team 
spii'it and attitude, tins is one of 
tlie most outstanding teams I've 
had. The caliber of competition 
hasn't been exceptional, but W'e 
did tie two very good teams." 

Most emphatic of the coaches 
was Bob Muir. "This is the finest 
freshman team, as a group, that 
I've had in 24 years at Williams. I 
feel that some of them will make 
swimming history in the next four 
years, not only in the New Eng- 
lands but also in the Nationals." 

John Bell, co-captain of the 
fresliman football team, felt that 
on arriving at Williams, individu- 
al performers from diffei'ent 
schools do not have a chance to 
form a real team spirit so early in 
the fall. "All the boys who were 
on the field, for a game really 
wanted to play football. But the 
intense rivalry was not there. Ev- 
en Amherst didn't seem like a bit- 
ter enemy, since most of us prob- 
ably could have ended up there as 
well as here but for a simple 

Coach Peter DeLisser tried i,o 
sum up the problems of a Williams 
freshman in the concise phrase, 
"a lack of confidence in himself." 
"He arrives at Williams with en- 
thusiasm and interest in his col- 
lege. It does not take him long to 
realize that to be sophisticated 
one must not be enthusiastic, in- 
terested, or aggressive. He knows 
his ideals and morals are right, 
but to ,ioin in tlie group activities 
and be a success he feels compel- 
led to modify his beliefs." 

C. S. Brown To Head 
7th Career Weekend 

C. Stuart Brown, a member of 
the Class of '35, will be the alum- 
ni head of the seventh annual 
Career Weekend Committee. Mr. 
Brown, manager of the advertising 
and public relations division of 
American Viscose Corporation, 
served as chairman of the Career 
Weekend Advertising and Public 
Relations Panel in 1958 and again 
this year. 

While at Williams, Brow'n was 
a member of the Record editorial 
board, the Glee Club, and St. An- 
thony Hall. He also served as var- 
sity football manager and was 
elected to Gargoyle. He is an ac- 
tive member of the Williams Al- 
umni Association of Philadelphia. 

As alumni cliairman, Brown will

which appears in the current is-

In commenting on the greatly- 
increased number of studenls now 
applying to Williams and schools 
of an equal calibre, Copeland 
writes that "it has given us a more 
interested student body much bet- 
ter prepared for college work; it 
has enabled us to enforce higher 
standards of academic achieve- 
ment while redLcin^ i'lunk-outs to 
a minimum , . ." More especially, 
it has enabled Williams to draw 
from an ever increasing area of 
American life. The higher quality 
of students has ensured a large 
body of graduates admission to' 
the best graduate schools, attract- 
ed recruiters from all fields of the 
business world, and served as an 
argument in securing the finest 
teachers available. 

The exact nature of this in- 
crease in serious, well-qualified 
applicants can be rather graphic- 
ally illustrated by comparison 
with the situation in 1940. In that 
year, there were 830 preliminary 
applications for 263 positions in 
the freshman class. In 1959, the 
number of students desiring ad- 
mission had increased to 2,333; 
whereas, the number of places 
available had increased to only 
288. This year, preliminary appli- 
cations are expected to run a- 
round 2500. 

However, of those who file pre- 
liminary forms, many do not com- 
plete the procedure and withdraw 
their names from consideration. 
This is the result of a quite ef- 
fective program of "pre-screen- 
ing" which takes place on the sec- 
ondary school level. School guid- 
ance counsellors and visiting 
members of the Williams staff do 
their best to steer students into 
the schools where they can best 
develop within the context of 
their native abilities. 

In dealing with so many indi- 
viduals who will not attend Wil- 
liams, the Admissions Office 
functions as a kind of public re- 
lations department. Each year, 
the members of the staff speak 
with and give counsel to hundreds 
of boys who will eventually attend 
college elsewhere. However, in the 
careful and personal attention 
they give to each apphcant, the 
Admissions department helps to 
develop a more effective picture 
of Williams College for the public 
at large. 

The increase In qualified can- 
didates has brought about an- 
other significant change hi ad- 
missions procedure: "Many of 
these boys can get into any col- 
lege in the country. We want the 
superior students to come to Wil- 
liams and do everything in our 
power to get them here." Because 
of the high number of students 
who apply to several colleges, the 
Admissions Office can never be 
certain how many of those who 
are accepted will attend college 
here. Last year, the class of 288 
members was filled from a group 
of 461 accepted young men. 

Nevertheless, Williams makes a 
concerted effort to "Snag" the 
very best students available. Cope- 
land and his staff conduct a large 
scale program of interviews and 
personal correspondence designed 
to further interest candidates in 
making this the college of their 
choice. Although there is no offi- 
cial early admissions procedure, 
"We let a really superior fellow 
know that we want him to come

adcs anil intiMid to remain one,"

here." The distinctly personal ap- 
proach with which candidates are 
greeted goes a long way towards 
creating the right impression of 
Williams as a small liberal arts 


Perhaps the greatest effect that 
the mass of applicants from which 
the Admissions Office selects a 
freshman class is the degree of 
variety that it makes possible on 
the campus. We get "a tremen- 
dously increased volume of appli- 
cations from equally increased 
number and types of schools rep- 
resented, geographical locations, 
and economic positions." Through 
the selection of students that 
Copeland and his staff make they 
are striving to add "balance to 
the student body." A mark of 
their achievement in this endeavor 
is the Increased number of stu- 
dents from public high schools, 
wide geographical areas, and low- 
er income groups — many of whose 
attendance here is encouraged 
and made possible by scholarship 


In seeking a more widely varied 
student body the Admissions De- 
partment has in no way compro- 
mised high standards of selection. 
In fact, these standards are at a 
peak of excellence. As Copeland 
says, "We've lost the bottom. Of 
the 1500 completed applications 
we have right now, the great ma- 
jority of them are qualified to do 
a good job at Williams." The re- 
sult is that in choosing a class of 
290, the Committee on Admis- 
sions can select those students 
who show the greatest potential 
of contributing to the college in- 
tellectual community — students 
with outstanding abilities in wide- 
ly varied areas of endeavor. The 
picture of the "Williams Man" in 
selecting a freshman class is a 
myth. Rather, the criterion of se- 
lection is "The inspired, able, cre- 
ative student endowed with intel- 
lectual interest and curiosity," 

Purple Crew To Sail 
For MacMillan Cup 

Williams moved up a notch in 
intercollegiate sailing circles last 
week when it was named to repre- 
sent New England with four other 
teams in the MacMillan Cup 
Championship to be held at the 
United States Naval Academy, 
March 30th through April 3rd. 

The nomination is considered a 
"plum" in intercollegiate compe- 
tition and this is the first year 
that Williams has been picked. 
Along with Boston University, 
Brown, Coast Guard and Yale, 
Williams will be sailing against 
five other teams from all parts 
of the country. 

The unique feature about the 
MacMillan Cup is that the races 
are sailed in the Naval Academy's 
ten matched 42 foot yawls. These 
craft take a crew of seven plus 
an observer from the .Academy. 
Sailing lor Williams will be Toby 
Smith '60 as skipper, Dick Sykes 
'61, helmsman, Charlie Ililf '62, 
Jimmy Sykes '63, Charlie Dana 
'61, Emil Kratovil '62 and Bub 
Linberg '61. 

There will be three races over 
25-mile courses in Chesapeake Bay 
with one practice race the day 
before the competition begins.

Harter believes that a non-in-

the attitude of many Williams un-

cern themselves with ethical and 
religious questions or pioblems 
dealing with the problems of their 
society in general." 

"Many of the students at Wil-

of security that will allow them 
to go through life without con-

ally. Consequently they ignore 
tliem or consider them only In an 
abstract fashion instead of trying 
to understand them in practical 

On the effect of problems of 
discrimination and tolerance on

nities do not adapt themselves to 
changing American society they 
will one day be recognized as ab-

eliminated. There is an ever-in-

Ihen Discusses Evolution Of Stars; 
Explains Stellar ^Giants', Vwarfs' 

HY KIT ]OS'i:S\ 

"Sliining at its present rate, and 
if made of i)ure helium, the sun 
could last 100 billion years'' was 
the seemingly reassuring fact sta- 
ted by Professor Icko A. Iben 
Thursday in the Biology Build- 

The subject of Iben's lecture 
was "The Evolution of Ideas Con- 
("■rning Stellar Evolution." He ex- 
lilained to an attentive audience 
the structure of stellar objects 
and their evolution. This evolu- 
tionary process is .so slow that 
"during the time that man has 
observed stars their has been very 
little cliange." 

The evidence for the theory of 
st!"!lar evolution lies principally in 
I lie Hertzsprung-Ru.ssel spectrum- 
luminosity diagram, which is 
drawn with multiple scales to 
show the interrelation between the 
temperature and the class of the 
spectra of each of the observed 
stellar bodies and the direct re- 
lationship, between their absolute 
magnitude, their luminosity, and 
tlieir mass. "There is a direct re- 
lationship between the observed 
color of a star and its surface 
temijerature," stated Iben in 
pointing out the various interre- 

The Hertz.sprung-Russell dia- 
gram reveals a grouping of stars 
going in a diagonal direction from 
the upper left to the lower right of 
the graph. This diagonal group- 
ing is usually referred to as the 
"main sequence''. The main se- 
quence is a continuum of stars ex- 

Liickv Sliikc's Dr. Frood is asked 

Why Are Today's Students More 
Serious, Dedicated, Industrious? 

Dear Dr. Frood: In your day, college 
studcnls were all rah-rah and raccoon 
coals. Today's sludcnl is more respon- 
sible, more dedicated, more industrious. 
What accounts for this hig change? 


Dear Stu: Today's world is more com- 
plex, more challenging;. Idcolofiics clash. 
Our planet grows smaller. The cold war 
strikes fear into our hearts. There is a 
shortage of raccoons. 




Dear Dr. Frood: I am disgusted with 
my classmates. All they think about is 
women and parties. How can I get them 
to talk about important things'.' 


Dear Serious: Throw a large party. 
Invite plenty of women. Then, around 
midnight, say something important, like 
"We're out of beer." 




Dear Dr. Frood: Modern girls go to 
college for four years. Then tlicy get 
married and don't even know how to 
change diapers. What is this leading to? 
Old- Fashioned 

Dear Old-Fathioned: Self-sufficient 


Dear Dr. Frood: Why doesn't every- 
body smoke Lucky Strike? 

Lucky Smoker 

Dear Lucky: Why doesn't everybody get 
straight "A's"? 




Dear Dr. Frood: Grandfather's will pro- 
vided a rather handsome allowance on 
the stipulation that 1 showed "the cour- 
age and strength ofcharacter" to stay in 
college. Frankly, however, 1 am tired of 
college. 1 have been here 40 years. Is 
there any way 1 can quit and still collect? 


Dear Senior: Your question brings up a 
considerable number of legal problems, 
with interesting technical ramifications. 
Having given the matter much thought, I 
have this suggestion: enter Law School. 

Dear Dr. Frood: Here are two portraits 
of B<;etho\en. One was done by an old 
master. The other by a student. Which 
is the masterpiece? 

Art Lover 

Dear Art: The one on the left is the 
master's work. The stroke is deft, clean, 
authoritative. Every detail is; .authentic 
Beethoven, even the gesture of keeping 
his composing hand warm. 




Dear Dr. Frood: Has college ever really 
helped anyone in business? 


Dear Practical: Of course. Think how 
college has helped the people who make 
pennants, footballs, fraternity pins. 




When it comes to choosing their regular smoke, 
college students head right for fine tobacco. 
Result: Lucky Strike tops every other regular 
sold. Lucky's taste beats all the rest because 
L.S./M.F.T.— Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. 


Product of (^J^ntuea^ X/^txo-^yuir^ - Jc^ietx^ is our middle name 

tending from the bright, massive 
and hot stars at one end, to the 
faint, lightweight, cool stars on 
the other. Our sun is located In 
just about the middle of the main 
sequence. Iben went on to say that 
"any given star spends most of 
its life span on the main se- 

There are two major exceptions, 
however, to the pattern of the 
main sequence as expressed by the 
Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. 

These two exceptions are exactly 
opposite in appearance although 
they may not be so widely separa- 
ted evolutionally. Tliese are the 
"red giants" and the "white 
dwarfs". Without going into a 
higlily technical explanation, Iben 
explained that after a certaiir de- 
gree of the chemicals composing a 
star are exhausted and only a per- 
centage of the most important ele- 
ment to radiation, hydrogen, re- 
mains, the star undergoes a 
change that increases its size and 
luminosity, but not its tempera- 
ture; this accounts for the "red 
giatits". Further along in the evo- 
lutionary process it is hypothesized 
that the hydrogen of the "red 
giant" is exhausted. Iben explain- 
ed that at this stage contraction 
sets in on the star and eventually 
it arrives at the highly massive 
and minute state of the "white 
dwarf" where it remains until ex- 

"Why aren't there any stars 
observed between the main se- 
quence and the 'white dwarfs', " 
was Iben's rhetorical question. 
"Its similar to the reason why you 
always see rabbits at water holes 
and never moving between tliem" 
observed Professor Iben with a 
sheepish grin. Iben concluded by 
saying that the Earth could never 
witness the cold that would result 
from the "white dwarf" stage of 
the sun. "The Earth would be en- 
gulfed long before that during the 
'red giant' stage." Iben assured the 
audience that this was nothing to 
worry about as it wouldn't occur 
for at least 15 billion years. 

Four Eph 'Quiz Kids'

Murphy, has been selected. 

The show will appear on the 
CBS network from 5:30 to 6:00. 
The Ephs, who boast an average 
I. Q. of 231, will face a strong 
Dartmouth squad. Coach Connol- 
ly will lead the purple into battle, 
however there will be no cheer- 
leaders and students are warned 
to refrain from violent emotional

that "this is a blatant attempt 
by an organization to buy the 
blessing of the intellectuals."

Both Clyde Buck and Pete Beck- 
witli won their first match. Buck 
edged Trinity's Gary Fahnsworth 
in four games before g-oing down 
before Amherst's No. 1 man .John 
Bates: 15-4. 11-15, 18-15, 15-11. 
Beckwith breezed by Cornell's No. 
2 player Pete Moeller: 11-15, 15- 
12, -5, -7. He ran into trouble a- 
gainst strong Tom Kehler of 
Princeton and, after picking up a 
2-1 lead, lost in five games: 12- 
15, 15-11, 10-15, 15-6, -7. 

Buck and Beckwith met later 
in the afternoon in the consola- 
tion final. Eph Buck beat his 
teammate-opponent in four 
games: 13-15. 15-12, 12, -10. 

Purple No. 2 player John Bowen 
opened against Amherst's No. 5 
racquetman Dud Lyons and troun- 
ced the Sabrina: 15-5, -6, -4. Next 
he whipped M. I. T.'s Egyptian 
ace Freddy Saad in a long five-

-12. He was soundly beaten in tlie 
quarter-finals by Princeton's 
sharp-shooting Steve Velislage: 
15-8, -4, -9. 

If events followed the expected

Springfield College swept to an 
overwhelming victory in the New 
England Intercollegiate wrestling 
championships last weekend, as 
they copped the titles in six of lh3 
eight divisions. The victory, be- 
fore large crowds in Williams' La- 
sall Gymnasium, was the tenth 
con :ecutive title for the powerful 
Maroon grapplers. Host William>: 
fini '.led in a tie with Amherst fa ■ 
thir;' with the Coast Guard a poo.- 
s.ccn.1 to Springfield in tlie t:n 
team xield. 


The most outstanding of Uie 
many Springfield victors were Bob 
Campana and Ralph DiMuccio. 
both of whom remained unbeaten 
in the championships for the third 
consecutive year. Campana tooK 
the title in tlie 123 pound class by 
edging Dartmouth's El Torbett by 
a 6-5 count, while DiMuccio took 
his third title in impressive fash- 
ion, pinning Ted Wood of Amherst 
at the 6:37 mark. 

Joe DiBella, a 130 pound wrest- 
ler for the Coast Guard, salvagjd 
the prestige of his squad by being 
chosen as the most valuable wrest- 
ler of the tournament. He coasted 
to the finals of the tournament in 
impressive fashion, and there dis- 
posed of Stu Smith, the Williams 
captain, on a pin at 5:35. For 
Smith it was a heart-breaker as 
he had DiBella in a near pin when 
time ran out at the end of the 
first period. 

The only other Ephman to reach 
the finals was heavyweight Bill 
Fox, who was edged in the final 
by Mario DeStefano of Spring- 
field in a tense 6-4 match. Con- 
sidering that Fox had been out on- 
ly a short time this season, and 
that DeStefano had achieved the 
quickest pin of the tournament, 
downing Ken Bevis of Amherst in 
only 1:05, the showing of Pox ;must 
be rated among the top by Wil- 
liams performers. 

Other Williams grapplers who 
gave the home crowd something 
to cheer about were Al Oehrle, 
Skip Chase, and Fred Noland all 
of whom racked up points for the 
Ephs in going to the consolation 

In the final point totals Spring- 
field, with its six champions in 
eight divisions, garnered 96, fol- 
lowed by Coast Guards' 44. Then 
came Williams and Amherst with 
31 each.

Freshmen Cop Little Three Crown 
With Final 66-54 Win Over Ms 

The freshmen five from Wil- 
liams copped the Little Three bas- 
ketball crown with a 66-54 win 
over the Amherst freshmen Sat- 
urday at Amherst. The victory was 
their second over the Lord Jeffs 
and gave them a final record of 
15-1 for the season, their only loss 
coming at the hands of Dartmouth 
early in the year. 

Held to a slim 24-22 half-time 
margin by Amherst's slow posses- 
sion tactics, the Pu-rple broke the 
game open in the third quarter 
and ran up a 19-point lead. High 
for Williams was Dan Voorhees 
with 21 points, followed by Pete 

Obourn with 16 and Roger Wil- 
liams with 13. Steve Weinstock, 
who scored 33 against Amherst in 
the first game, was double-team- 
ed and held to 6 points.

Freshmen Romp 

Varsity liockey finished a dis- 
appointing sea.son Saturday, los- 
ing to Amherst for the third time 
this sea.son 6-3. Laurie Hawkins 
had two goals and an assist. Im- 
mediately following the freshmen 
outclassed their Jeff counterparts 
9-0, to become the first undefeat- 
ed Williams team this year. 

In the varsity game, Williams 
jumped to an early 1-0 lead on 
a solo by Hawkins while a man 
dowTi. Amherst came right back 
to tie the score on a 20 foot screen 
shot by Opdyke, who was helped 
off the ice minutes later with a 
broken collarbone after receiving 
a stiff check from Frank Ward. 

Amherst suddenly exploded 
midway through the .second peri- 
od for 4 goals in 5 minutes to 
put the game on ice. Two third 
period goals by Hawkins and Com- 
stock put Williams back in the 
game, but the deficit was too large. 

The Eph yearlings took the lead 
on an impressive solo rush by 
Tommy Roe with ,iust 17 seconds 
gone by. Roe added 3 more goals 
and 2 assists to bring his .seasons 
total to 27 points. Also .scoring 
were Gene Goodwillie, Ron Stemp- 
ien, Andy Holt, Doug Maxwell, 
and Jim Wood. 

Ephs Down Amherst 
For Little 3 Crown 

HY rour sciii{i:iiu:ii 

In a close and hard-fought con- 
test, Saturday night, the Williams 
College basketball team handed 
Amherst a 66-58 defeat to give the 
Ephmen their first Little Three 
crown since 1955, 

A fourth quarter rally by the 
Lord Jeffs nearly deprived the 
cagers of their biggest victory of 
the season. The Jeffs, down by ten 
points at the lialf and trailing all 
the way. pulled even at 50-50 be- 
hind RoUie Miller and Dick Ger- 
nold. The Ephs then spurted a- 
head and away as George Boyn- 
ton drilled a jump-shot from the 
corner, followed by a Lou Guzzetti 
tip-in to break the back of the 
Amherst attack. The much-fear- 
ed Lord Jeff press proved unsuc- 
cessful in the closing minutes as 
Captain Boynton dribbled away 
from all danger to run out the 


Outstanding defensive rebound- 
ing by Sam Weaver enabled Wil- 
liams to control the boards and 
launch their fast break, scoring 
before Amherst could set up its 
defense. Bob Mahland combined 
with Pete Mulhausen on two vital 
fast-break buckets. Mahland and 
Mulhausen shared scoring honors 
with 16 points for the evening. 
Boynton and Weaver finished with 
11 and 10 points, respectively. 

The team, with a 3-1 Little 
Three and overall 15-7 record, 
had their finest season in recent 
years. Their late spurt in which 
the cagers took seven games 
straight and ten of their last 
eleven highlighted the winter 
sports schedule.

Shirley Jackson, Bennington Writer, 
Discusses Experience And Fiction 

Shirley Jack.soii. authoress of the wc 
"Lottery", spokt- to cTfativc writing classes 
Her topic was "Fiction and Ex- 
perience" and her talk was ad- 
drcs.sed to the question most com- 
monly leveled at writers, "Where 
do ideas for stories come from." 

Fiction, Miss Jackson feels, 
mu ,1 be derived basically from hu- 
man experiences. This does not 
mean that all stories must be auto- 
bio;-iaphical; "an event must be 
attacked as a puppy attacks a 
shell- It must be turned around 
and over and inside out to see 
winch way it looks best," but its 
in-iuiation must be taken from 
the every day events which con- 
frciii the author. To illustrate this 
point, she discussed her recent 
novi 1, The Haunting of Hill House, 
ar.d the problems involved in writ- 
In. it. 


1 lie real genesis of the book 
came when she read a report by a 
group of psychic researchers. They 
had rented a supposedly haunted 
house, moved in, and recorded 
theu- reactions and impressions, interested Miss Jackson a- 
Doui the report was not what they 
had discovered, but rather, the 
situation into which the research- 
ei's had been placed. She Immedi- 
ately "wanted to set up my own 
haunted house with my own people 
in it." 

After this idea occured to her, 
all experiences seemed to suggest 
the supernatural. For example, on 
a ti'ip to New York City, her train 
stopped at the 125th Street Sta- 
"on and, through the window, she 
saw a vacant building. It was old 
and very black and "seemed so 
horrible that I could not take my 
eyes off it," That night she had a 
nightmare. This dream. Miss Jack- 
son emphasized, showed very little 
about .her. inner self. "My sub- 
conscious has been subconscious 
■or some years and its going to 
stay that way," but it did Illus- 
trate the application of a common

"subconscious for years" 

occurence to the creation of fic- 

After this trip. Miss Jackson 
and her husband, left the city by 
night train to avoid seeing the 
building, she began to collect pic- 
tures of old and decrepit houses. 
She finally found one, in Life 
magazine, which seemed ugly 
enough for the setting of her book. 
Gathering information on this 
particular house proved no prob- 
lem. Her great grandfather had 
built it. 

The house incident caused a 
certain uneasiness which was re- 
infoi-ced when she woke one morn- 
ing to find the words "dead, dead" 
written on a piece of copy paper 
in her own handwriting. Although 
she had enjoyed pursuing the sup- 
ernatural she did not care 
much for having the supernatural 
pursue her. She decided to finish 
the book quickly.

J. Burgess Explains 
Task Of Episcopals 

"A bishop in Singapore once 
bragged that in all his years there 
he had never spoken any langu- 
age other than English and that 
only white people had ever come to 
him for counselling or comfort. 

This is just one example of how 
the modern church is geared to 
a small, select group; it does not 
reach, nor does it attempt to 
reach, all depths of society with 
its message. Con.sequently. we are 
losing ground to the family unit, 
to the social clubs, and to the in- 
dustrial organizations which have 
come to hold more meaning for 
the individual than does the 

These are the sentiments of the 
■Venerable John M. Bin-gess. Arch- 
deacon of Boston, who spoke on 
the topic of "The Episcopal 
Church: A Middle-Class Denomin- 
ation" at St. John's Vestry Din- 
ner Tuesday night. He emphasized 
the fact that this evangelical fail- 
ure is a result of misunderstanding 
on the part of the church, pointing 
out that the church has divorced 
itself from the common life simply 
because it does not realize that a 
majority of persons find their en- 
tire body of interests within the 
limits of this life. The speaker 
used the results of experimental 
programs with labor unions to 
show that "people will come to the 
church only when it goes to them, 
when it speaks to them in their 
own spheres of life— in the unions, 
in the slum areas, in the skid 

Burns Meets Students 
Interested In Kennedy 

Professor James M. Burns will 
meet tonight with all students in- 
terested in campaigning for Sena- 
tor John Kennedy in the Massa- 
chusetts Democratic Primary to be 
held April 22. The meeting has 
been scheduled for 7:30 in the 

Professor Burns will not lead 
or direct the student groups. He 
commented, "My part will be simp- 
ly to get the groups going. Each 
one formed will conduct its own 
campaign." Although it is unlike- 
ly that Kennedy will be opposed in 
this primary, the vote is not con- 
sidered insignificant. The object 
of these student groups is to get 
a large number of the state's dem- 
ocrats to the polls.

IS well as i)()litic"il, social, and ccoiioinic," Pro- 
\iiH'rican Studies IJepartnieiit of 
Smith College discussed "Latin A- 
merica: Castro, Democracy, and 
Reform" Wednesday night at a 
lecture sponsored by the history 

In considering the problems of 
Castro in Cuba, Ruiz emphasized 
that the situation must be viewed 
in light of the entire Latin Amer- 
ican scene. First, he tried to clarify 
two misconceptions prevalent in 
the United States: that democracy 
is the cure-all for all Latin Amer- 
ican problems and that Castro's 
revolution has betrayed the cause 
of democracy throughout South 

"The problem here is economic. 
Poverty, hunger, and disease are 
the spectres that haunt Latin A- 
merica." A rejuvenation in this 
area can be the result only of great 
economic reforms designed to re- 
lieve the burden of the peasants 
and to alter the present distribu- 
tion of land. Because Castro rec- 
ognizes these problems, ire is an 
improvement over past rulers who 
have blinded themselves to the 
crisis in Cuba. 

Most Latin American nations, 
despite their wide cultural, racial, 
and social differences, have in 
common a dependence on one 
specific crop. In Cuba, 80 per cent 
of the national income is derived 
from sugar. This system is based 
on large plantations owned by a 
small minority and exploiting the 
labor of a great measure of the 
Cuban working force. 

Under this monocultural econo- 
my, which has virtually reached 
its limit in Cuba, progress and im- 
provement is no longer possible. 
Democracy at this stage of their 
development is not the answer: 
"what is necessary is agrarian re- 
form, reform to make both dem- 
ocracy and industrialization later 
possible, reform to raise the stan- 
dard of living of the Cuban 

on" will he discussed hv Nex'ill 
Hall. The talk, sjionsored hv the 
free and opi'ii to the ])nblie. 

Coghill, Merlon Professor of Lit- 
erature at the University of Ox- 
ford, is best known at Williams 
I for his translation of Chaucer's 
Canterliury Tales. He says, "I have 
tried to make Chaucer alive for 
modern students." In his lecture 
he plans to the Franklin's 
and the Wife of Bath's tales, as 
well as touch upon many aspects 
of fourteenth-century life. 

Coghill has appeared in both 
amateur and profe.ssional theatre 
productions, including Midsummer 
Night's Dream, with John Gielgud 
and Peggy A.shcroft at the Hay- 
market Theatre in London, and 
Vaughan Williams' Pilgrim's Pro- 
gress at Covent Garden, London. 
In addition, he has produced 
several "odd little things which 
nobody else would dare present," 
according to Mr, Ralph Aiken of 
the English department. During 
a visit to the United States six 
years ago, he directed Shakes- 
peare's .A Winter's Talc at Michi- 
gan State University, 

Born in 1899, Coghill attended 
Haileybury College, He was a sec- 
ond lieutenant in the artillery on 
the Salonika Front in 1918, and a 
year later he became a scholar at 
Exeter College, Oxford, In 1924 he 
was appointed a Fellow in English 
Literature, and he tutored many 
Williams graduates, recipients of 
the Moody Scholarship, 

It was this indirect contact with 
Williams, plus the "pleasant mem- 
ories" of a visit in 1932, which 
convinced Coghill to speak here 
Monday night. His lecture sche- 
dule had already been filled but, 
at the request of the Lecture Com- 
mittee and Mr. Aiken, he agreed 
to fly over three days early and 
begin at Williams. 

Besides his lecture tours and 
teaching, Coghill is now trans- 
lating Chaucer's Troilus and Cris- 
cydc. He has been working on this 
for ten years. It took him five to 
do Canterbury Tales. 

Concert Rescheduled 

The Berkshire Singers concert, 
which had been "snowed out" on 
March 4, will be presented on 
Monday, March 14, at nine p.m. 
in Chapin Hall. Tire group, con- 
sisting of 30 voices under the di- 
rection of Music Professor Robert 
Barrow, will sing the famed Re- 
quiem by Faure, Pergogolosi's 
Stabet Mater, and Buxtehude's 
Missa Brevis. Tickets will be sold 
at the door. 

Harvard's Hansen 
Lecture Tuesday 

Alvin H, Hansen, Lucius N, Lit- 
tauer Pi'ofessor of Political Econo- 
my, emeritus, at Harvard, -will dis- 
cuss "Automation and Pyramid 
Building" Tuesday night at 8 in 
Jesup Hall, 

One of America's leading ac- 
ademic economists today, Hansen 
is concerned with the possible de- 
cline of investment opportunities 
in this country, and the increasing 
need for government expenditures. 
The latter would serve to bolster 
the over-all economy, and would 
eliminate secular stagnation along 
with inadequate growth. 

Hansen served as one of Presi- 
dent Franklin D. Roosevelt's chief 
economic advisors during the thir- 
ties. The leading exponent of in- 
creased government expenditure 
at the time, he saw his policies 
carried out in the form of deficit 
financing. In addition, many stu- 
dents under him were moved into 
important governmental positions 
at that time. Later, in 1945, he 
became special economic advisor to 
the Federal Reserve Board in 

A graduate of Yankton College, 
he took his M. A. and Ph D. at the 
University of Wisconsin. 

Hansen is the author of many 
books on economics, including The 
American Economy, Economic 
Policy and Full Employment, Am- 
erica's Role in the World Economy, 
and State and Local Finance in 
the National Economy. In 1955-56, 
he was the recipient of the Silver 
Pen Award of the Journal Fund,

Baxter - Defence Gap 


In recent testimony before a 
Senate subcommittee, Williams 
President James P. Baxter, 3rd 
and Robert C, Spragiie, president 
of SpraKue Electric Company in 
North Adams, declared that United 
States military power is in srave 
danger of Ijeing outstripped by the 
Soviets. Tliey concluded that this 
nation can. and must, devote more 
of its resources to bolstering na- 
tional security. 

Tiieir statements were delivered 
on Feb. 24 before the Senate Sub- 
committee on National Policy Ma- 
chinery, headed by Sen. Harry 
M. Jack.son (>. Both Bax- 
ter and Spragre (Chairman of 
Sprague Eleciric Co. in Norlli 
Adams) served on the so-called 
Gaitlur Committee. Sprague, as Its 
second chairman. This group sub- 
mitted a still top-secret report 
to President Eisenhower in 1957 
on the country's military prepar- 

Citing many historical examples. 
Baxter stated that "Democracies 
have never been at their best in 
relating force and policy. The 
normal pattern in the United 
States has been to let our arma- 
ments run down in a long period 
of peace, to fail to discern the 
impending danger in time, and to 
do too little and too late." 

Yet. he warned, "the USSR has 
from the start aimed at the dom- 
hiion of the world by international 
communism, and still does so aim." 
Sprague agreed: "If the test of 
war is not whether there is shoot- 
ing, but whether someone is try- 
ing to defeat us. we are fight- 
ing World War III ri.glit now." 

Baxter went on to examine tlic 
central reqtirements of defense. 
"The defense policy of the United 
States rests on deterrence." liL- 
said. "I believe that at the present. 
SAC is an adequate deterrent a- 
gainst full-scale wars . . .It will be 
an adequate deterrent against lim- 
ited wars if the Russians believe 
that we would use It. 

"With due respect to contrary 
opinion," he continued, "I should 
be happier if we improved our con- 
ventional strength to wage limit- 
ed war, and added thereby to our 
deterrent power. In any event, 
we must never welsh on a treaty 
committment." either by reluc- 
tance to use SAC or lack of con- 
ventional means. To do so, he de-

clared, would "destroy oui alii- 
nnce value and with it the wiioig 
fabric of free world" 

Sprague pointed out the d ifer- 
ence in emphasis of militar de. 
velopment between the US ai.l the 
USSR. While the Soviet gro.' na- 
tional product is presently 
than one-half that of the US 
are placing 25 per cent of 
the military sector. We seem 
ever, to have accepted a "ce 
on defense .spending of aboi. 
billion dollars, presently less

Russian expenditure rises

at 6.5 per cent a year, 'i 
Spragre concluded, "if R

money. "Nobody." he said, "li ,tes

'Caesar And Cleopatra' Opening Postponed 

Due to an unexpected delay in 
the arrival of the costumes for the 
AMT production of Caesar and 
Cleopatra the opening perform- 
ance is postponed to Friday. 

Under the direction of Robert 
Miithews, the production is one of 
the biggest ever staged by the 
theatre. Nine sets have been pre- 
pared for the play. "We have tried 
to carry Shaw's purpose of pro- 

traying the sublime, heroic in a 
ridiculous light, through extremes 
in the staging," Mathevi-s stated. 
"It IS definitely one of his most 
delightful comedies," he added. 

The play is Shaw's treatment of 
the Hero, as lie sees him, said Ma- 
thews. One of his main themes is 
that heroes are not heroic all the 
time. Shaw takes the bases of a 
hero and shows him often In a 

ridiculous light. Comedy 
then from the actions of the un- 
heroic hero. Caesar and Cleopatra 
are portrayed as two ordinary 
people who achieved some histori- 
cal notoriety. 

The other main roles are played 
by Richard Willhite '60 as Rutius, 
John Campbell '62 as Britanni;.s 
and music professor Thomas Gris- 
wold as Polthinius.

Burns On Elections: 
Four Party System 

bt/ Frank Ei/stcr 


"VVi- hear on all .sides that 1960 will be a year of fateful de- 
cision, |)erliaps a critical turninf^ point in American history. I dis- 
agree. If we take a hard look at 
the way our politics actually 
works, we will see that the main 
political battle of 1960 has already 
been decided: liberals will win the 
presidential contest and conser- 
vatives will win the congressional 

This statement was made by 
James Burns, professor of politi- 
cal science at Williams, in the 
second of a three part series in 
this issue of The Atlantic Month- 

He goes on to say that, "The 
election is more likely to produce 
a stalemate over policy than a 
meaningful decision as to the fu- 
ture course of American politics." 

Mr. Burns explains this state- 
ment by saying that in our party 
system, each major party is "di- 
vided into presidential and con- 
gressional wings that are virtu- 
ally separate parties in them- 
selves." The main difference be- 
tween the two is that "both presi- 
dential parties are more liberal 
and internationalist than both 
congressional parties.'' 

As a re.sult of this division, into 
what Burns calls "four-party pol- 
itics," the conservatives and liber- 
als will stage their own separate 

The presidential battle will be 
waged on a national front. Each 
contestant will be trying to pre- 
sent a more liberal view than his 
opponent. The two candidates 
"will be competing, that is, to 
commit the federal government 
under their leadership to taking 
up the heavy tasks forced on it 
by Soviet competition abroad and 
by years of drift at home." 

"The real question facing us . . 
is not so much who will win next 
fall's presidential election — a lib- 
eral will win it-but what the win- 
ner will do about his liberal com- 
mitments once he enters the White 
House." This will depend largely 
on the outcome of the battle be- 
tween the congressional parties. 
And this battle, says Burns will 
be won by the conservatives. 

He gives three reasons why the 
conservative element will be elec- 
ted in the fall. "One reason . . . , 
is that Congress overrepresents 
rural and conservative voters be- 
cause of gerrymandering. Another 
is that most leaders of the con- 
gressional parties-nolably the 
committee chiefs in the House and 
Senate-are sure to hold their seats 
no matter what happens in na- 
tional politics, for they represent 
one-party areas, as in the South 
and in rural sections of the North 
and West, where there is no real 
competition from the opposition 
party and very little within the 
dominant party. Conservatives will 
win Congress next fall also because 
of the coalition system in the 
House and Senate. No matter 
which party gains majorities on 
Capitol Hill, power gravitates 
toward the Old Guard leaders in 

each party." These men Burns re- 
marks, get along better with the 
conservatives of the other party 
than with the libei-als of their own. 



Tlie President will at first have 
an easy time in pushing his plat- 
form through. "But soon the mass 
basis of his party will melt away." 
The supporters of the presidential 
candidate will have no place to go. 
"Few of them will find a home in 
their state or local parties, be- 
cause these parties are not orien- 
ted around national candidates or 
programs. The crucial machinery 
linking the President, Senators, 
and representatives to voters con- 
cerned about national problems 
does not exist." This problem "is 
the fatal gap in our system." 

Shirley Jackson 

Continued from Page 1, Col. 2 

Thus she completed fifty pages 
before reaching an impass. At 
this point. What she had intended 
to be "the kind of a book no one 
wants to sit home alone at night 
and read . . . began to look like a 
drawing room comedy with my 
carefuUy drawn characters sit- 
ting around intermidably playing 
bridge, drinking martinis, and 
waiting for something to happen." 
They were waiting for a supernat- 
ural visitation and Miss Jackson's 
problem was to make it seem con- 
vincing. Again the problem was 
easily solved: "I saw my first 

This sighting took place one af- 
ternoon when her son asked her 
to fix the television set. Something 
had gone wrong and the picture 
was coming through as a negative. 
Miss Jackson could not fix the 
set, but she could see, in the per- 
sonage of a negative vocalist, 
something frightening enough to 
be a convincing ghost. A similar 
image appears in her novel. 

Writing is not, however, simply 
a process of drawing stories from 
experience, it is not solely work. 
Miss Jackson has "always found 
a great comfort in making stories 
out of evei'yday events, out of kit- 
tens and grade school Christmas 
concerts." She recalled a visit by 
a tax collector, most of which was 
spent in the study with the collec- 
tor reeling off figures and her hus- 
band, literary critic Stanley Ed- 
gar Hyman, shouting 'deprecia- 
tion depreciation' " 

During this visit, she became an- 
noyed with the governments per- 
secution of law abiding citizens 
and started to compose a letter to 
the President. She found this un- 
satisfactory so instead she wrote 
a story about an insane tax col- 
lector. On his way out, the villan 
of the piece stopped by her desk to 
ask "Where writers got ideas for 
stories." Miss Jackson, quickly re- 
trieving a page of her latest story 
from the collectors hand, just

Catlike Pete Guy outguesses freshman Gene Goodwitlie and Kon 
Stetnpien; amused All Stars Tierney and Wittcmore look on. 

Frosh Icemen Nip All Stars 5-1 
Net Four Goals In Second Period 

Held to one j^oal in the first period by the stelhir i^ortltendiiiij; 
of Peter Guy, the freshman hoekev team scored 4 in the first fi\'e 
minutes of the second period to nip the RECORID Intramural All- 
Stars 5-1 on the Williams Rink. Gene Goodwillie was hij^h scorer 
with two goals. 

For the remaining ten minutes 
of the second period and the third 
period, the All Stars pulled out all 
stops to thwart any freshman 
scoring attempts. John Sargeant, 
guarding the twines for the latter 
half of the game, turned aside 
numerous drives from all angles 
in a spectacular shutout perfor- 
mance. Meanwhile Harry Hagey 
banged in an unassisted 20 footer 
in the third period for the lone 
All Star tally. 

The All Star defensive unit was 
hard pressed all afternoon. Tom- 
my Boyden, skating both at line 
and defense, led the hustling in- 
tramural team, heading many 
drives on the freshman nets 
and forechecking hard in the cor- 
ners. It was this kind of spirit that 
pervaded the whole RECORD All 
Star team and almost allowed 
them to come up with the big up- 
set victory.

K. A. Places First In 
Intramural Ski Meet 

Kappa Alpha won the Intra- 
mural Skiing Championship held 
on Sheep Hill on Monday. Al- 
though they did not place any 
men in the first three spots, the 
K. A.'s picked up points by hav- 
ing a well balanced squad that 
finished high in the point stand- 

Charlie Boynton's spectacular 
run gave Delta Upsilon second 
place, while the Hoosacs, a strong 
freshman team, placed third. 

Boynton's time of -24.0 seconds 
was well ahead of that of Hal Mc- 
Cann of Chi Psi who finished sec- 
ond with a time of 27.2 seconds. 
Close behind him in third place 
was Nick Ohly from Psi Upsilon 
with a time of 28.5 seconds. 

The race consisted of a twenty- 
gate slalom course. Nine fraterni- 
ties and three freshmen squads 
were entered. The race started un- 
der a cloudy sky with the ski con- 
ditions excellent.

Winter Teams Close Season With 
Late Surge Of Williams' Victories 

Williams hockey hit a low this 
season with a record of 5 wins 
and 14 defeats. However, of the 
regulars on the team, only one 
will graduate this spring. Seven 
sophomores and six juniors plus 
an undefeated freshman team 
make the out- 
look encourag- 
ing for next, 

Laurie Haw- 
kins led the 
Ephs in scor- 
ing for tho 
Jim Fischer second season 
in a row with 19 goals and 11 as- 
sists for 3 points. Sophomore Marc 
Comstock was second with 27 
points, followed by captain Fisher 
and George Lowe. 

Three sophomores, John Roe, 
Prank Ward, and Bill Beadie Im- 
proved steadily as the season pro- 

The freshman team was led by 
high scoring Tom Roe and goalie 
Bob Rich, who registered 4 shut- 
outs in 7 games. Next season will 
press varsity goalie Al Lapey, who 
had a 5 goal per game average. 

Stew Smith 

The Eph 
wrestling squad, 
after posting a 
discouraging 1- 
6 dual meet 
record, came 
through to fin- 
ish in a tie for 
third place in 

the New Englands with Amherst, 
to whom they lost a close 14-12 
match the previous week. They 
also came out ahead of Wesleyan, 
which took the Little Three cham- 

Captain Stew Smith, the only 
wrestler to be lost by graduation, 
was the spark plug for the team 
throughout the season, with Skip 
Chase and Mike Brimmer posting 
coiivincing victories in most meets. 
Al Oehrle, John Thompson, and 
Bill Pox came out late in the sea- 
son to show promise for next 
year's contingent. 

The Williams College basketball 
team with a 15-7 record enjoyed 
its most successful season in re- 
cent years. A victory over Am- 
herst to clinch the "Little Three' 
championship and preserve a six 
game winning .streak highlighted 
the winter's ac- 


Bob Mahland 
established a 
new sophomore 
scoring record 
and led the 
George Boynton team with a 
total of 401 points. The Eph's 73 
per cent from the foul line was 
the best in recent years, while 
Mahland's 84 per cent set a new 

Williams will be weakened by 
the loss of Capt. George Boynton 
and Pete Mulhausen, both of 
whom did outstanding jobs at the 
guard slots this year. Returning, 
however, will be the second lead- 
ing scorer Bob Montgomery, Mah- 
land. and Sam Weaver who did 
a brilliant rebounding job. With 
this nucleus supplemented by an 
outstanding freshman team, next 
year's prospects look good. 

Strong on top, deep in ..ijiUty 
the Williams varsity team 

played their way to an 8-3 (.^coid 
and regained the Little rh,

CC Discusses WMS' 
Problems With FCC 

WMS and its problems with the 
FCC was the major topic discus- 
sed by the College Council on 
Monday night. The problem now 
seems imminent that they may be 
forced off the air on AM broad- 
casts because they are radiating 
over the legal limit. 

Mike Bolduan '61 presented the 
problem and described what he 
called "a concerted effort by the 
FCC to force colleges out of the 
AM broadcasting field." In an ef- 
fort to find some means of com- 
plying with the legal limit the 
station has hired a technical ad- 
viser who, with several of the 
station personnel, will work over 
vacation to determine whether 
there are any practicable means 
of reaching the limit. 

The CC discussed briefly cost 
and difficulties present in the 
loss of AM rights which would be 
considerable since no advertising 
is permissible on FM. No action 

"Those who are accepted and 
who need financial aid will re- 
ceive it.'' This is Williams scholar- 
ship policy as articulated by Hen- 
ry N. Flynt, Jr. '44, Director of 
Student Aid. 

In light of the ever-increasing 
cost of college education and the 
great number of students quali- 
fied for and desiring a good edu- 
cation, 'Williams has met these 
problems with a "full and far-

Coordination Of Lectures Offers Plan 
For Uniformly Interesting Schedule 

A general plan to coordinate all 
lectures on campus has drawn 
both criticism and approval. At 
present the Lecture Committee, 
the Adelphic Union, the various 
departments, and the other bodies 
who sponsor lectures are entirely 
independent of each other in their 
activities, which makes for a 
crowding together of lectures dur- 
ing one week while the next week 
may show nothing of interest. This 
idea of a change aims at elimina- 
ting this confusion and seeming 
haphazardness by promoting in- 
ter-group cooperation and by in- 
stituting some sort of coordina- 
tion of the content and schedul- 
ing of lectures. 


Professor Fred Stocking, chair- 
man of the Lecture Committee, 
feels that such a change is very 
definitely needed. He is particu- 
larly in favor of a small committee 
to outline general policy with a 
single administrative officer to 
carry out this policy. Explaining 
the advantage of having such an 
officer coordinate campus lectures, 
Stocking argued that "this ad- 
ministrator, by keeping in con- 
stant touch with the interests and 
requests of the student body and 
the various bodies that sponsor 
lectures, could plan the content 
and distribution of events to sat- 
isfy as many as possible." But he 
quickly added that "such a plan 
will be slow in materializing be- 
cause it will take quite a while to 
establish a new administrative of- 

Application Rise Noted 

Candidates for the class of 
1964 presently outnumber last 
year's group by about 100. 
There are 2430 pieliminary ap- 
plications as compared to 2333 
at this time In 1959. Completed 
forms number 1534, the incre- 
ment of applicants over last 
year being 97. Although the 
actual deadline for getting ap- 
plications in has passed. Ad- 
missions Director Frederick C. 
Copeland expects "a few strag- 
glers" and these cases will be 
0F)en for consideration. 

fice and to find a person with the 
time required for such a difficult 

Dean Robert R. R. Brooks agrees 
that a change would be beneficial 
but not absolutely necessary. He 
noted, however, that "any at- 
tempt at coordination seems im- 
practical and futile because of 
the uncertainty involved in pro- 
curing lecturers outside of the 
College. It is impossible in many 
cases to know more than a week 
in advance who is available and 
whether we can get him for a lec- 
ture. All we can do at the present 
time is to see that no two lectures 
or events are scheduled for the 
same night." It seems, to follow 
therefore, that any successful 
change would have its definite ad- 
vantages, but no plan is likely to 
succeed unless it provides some 
sort of solution to the practical 
problem of long-range planning 
and coordination. 

State Offers Students 
Gov't Intern Program 

The State of Massachusetts has 
announced the second Massachu- 
setts Summer Student Internship 
Program, a project to give college 
students residing in this state an 
opportunity to work in the state 

Each intern will work within 
one particular agency. However, he 
will perform a variety of jobs at 
the management level designed to 
acquaint him with the broader 
framework of the state govern- 
ment. Interns will also participate 
in weekly seminars concerned with 
problems in state government. The 
program will run twelve weeks, 
from June 13 to September 2. In- 
terns will receive $60 a week, $720 
for the summer. 


Eligibility is limited to junior 

In that same time, enrollment 
has gone from 800 to 1100 men. 

Twenty years ago, the college 
awarded $48,850 in financial aid 
to needy students. Today, schol- 
arship recipients receive a total 
of more than $250,000 a year. The 
crisis in educational finances has 
resulted in more money available 
from a greater variety of sources. 
National organizations interested 
in helping worthy students 
through college — such as, the Na- 
tional Merit Foundation, General 
Motors, the Alfred P. Sloan Foun- 
dation, and many others — contri- 
buted $45,790 in scholarships last 
year. This amount is almost equal 
to the total aid given in 1939-40. 

The balance of the fund comes 
from endowment and general col- 
lege funds. Within the past few 
years. Alumni group scholarships 
have grown from little or notiiing 
twenty years ago to almost $5,000 
last year, showing that the greater 
part of college financing is de- 
rived from sources other than 
student tuition. 

In awarding scholarships to in- 
dividual students, the scholarship 
committee relies primarily on the 
evaluation of the Admissions Com- 
mittee. "As long as a boy quali- 
fies for admission, the aid com- 
mittee doesn't establish additional 
academic standards. If, in the eyes 
of the committee, he can demon- 
strate sufficient financial need, 
he will receive aid." However, in 
administering the various special 
scholarships given at 'Williams, 
like those of the Tyng Foundation, 
the committee also considers "out- 
standing academic ability, inter- 
ests, and responsibilities." 

Proof of the effectiveness of the 
Student Aid office and Admissions 
Department in selecting recipients 
of aid is the fact that, as a group, 
"scholarship students generally 
excell the class average in every 

Librarian Archer 
To Lecture Upon 
Printing's History 

Dr. H. Richard Archer, Curator 
of the Chapin Library, will deliver 
the faculty lecture Thursday af- 
ternoon at 4:30 in the Thompson 
biology laboratory. He has chosen 
for his topic "Archetypes and In- 
novations in the Black Art." 

Although he would not disclose 
the exact nature of this mysteri- 
ous phrase. Archer hinted "I hope 
to show ways in which books and 
incidental printing remained the 
same for five centuries, as well as 
distinctive changes." 

Archer remarked that the lec- 
ture will not be technical. He will 
describe how type faces have de- 
veloped and how this development 
has been affected by modern ar- 
chitecture, painting, and photo- 
graphy. The increase in the num- 
ber of type faces began in the 
nineteenth century and has con- 
tinued until there are well over 
a thousand different kinds of type 
faces today. 

Archer has chosen as examples 
selected groups of printers and 
typographers from Aldus to Zapf 
who have created new type faces 
and new styles in typography. He 
will use color slides to reveal their 

The Curator's knowledge of 
printing correlates with his in- 
terest in rare books, but he is also 
interested in printing as a crafts- 
man. There is a present revival of 
interest in printing as a craft by 
amateurs in Britain and America. 
Archer is among this group and 
operates as a hobby the Hippo- 
graph Press on which he prints 
distinctive greetings and notices.

His subject was a quote from 
Malcolm Muggeridge, "If Christ 
had been put on television to 
preach the Sermon on the Mount, 
viewers would either have switched

that the speaker had an interest-

Second place was won by Paul

Anti-Apathetic Students Hold Colloquium On 
* Challenge Of American Democracy ' At Yale 

This past weekend Challenge*, 
a student organization at 'Vale 
University formed to combat 
campus apathy, presented a col- 
loquium on "The Challenge of 
American Democracy" to approxi- 
mately 2,000 interested collegians, 
about half of them from Yale. 

The keynote speaker for the 
weekend was Harold Taylor, re- 
cently retired president of Sarah

young educator expressed his dis- 
may with the apparent aimless- 
ness and confusion of today's Am-

position of minority groups in 
labor and politics. He cogently 
pointed out that: "the problem of 
the Negro is the color line, and 
the color lino is the test of dem-

NAACP lawyer, won standing ap- 
plause for his talk on "Segrega- 
tion in the North". He said, "Seg- 
regation and discrimination are 
bad everywhere, whether based on 
custom or law ... In the North 
each individual has the right, the 
duty, to break down bad customs." 

Arizona's Conservative Senator 
Barry Goldwater covered the ec-

opinion that what America needs 
is more free enterprise.

A bad mixture 

111 most respects the production of Shaw's com- 
edy Caesar and Cleopatra hy the AMT this 
weekend was an extremely adinirahle one. Most 
pe()]jle enjoyed it tor it's a very !i;ood phy and 
the Playfairs and Robert Mathews did very well 
in their roles. 

The major problems lie in the use of a hetero- 
genions mixtnre of aniatenr and professional 
talents in an allefjjedlv student production. Shaw 
is very difficult to do well. His comic effect is 
only fully achieved by precise timing, poised 
stage presence, and clear enunciation. To achieve 
these effects the services of trained ))rofessional 
actors are required on every level. 

The amateurs in the cast performed very well in 
almost all instances, but in coni])arison to the 
polished ))erformances of the leads thev natin- 
ally were rougher and less effective. 

The theatre is an excellent one and by all means 
should be used to joroduce plays with the highest 
]30ssihle degree of excellence. What must be 
maintained is the distinction between amateur 
and professional performances. Both can be ex- 
cellent and fun for all concerned on their in- 
dividual merits. The random mixing of the two 
that occurred this weekend does nothing but to 
weaken the effect of the whole jiroduction by 
overem|Dhasizing the fact that students are not 
professional actors. They can be and are excel- 
lent amateurs, and it is on these groimds that 
thev must lie judged. 


Isolationism unconsidered 

Foreign students are nothing new. For years men 
from other countries have enjoyed a Williams 
education. And many Williams students have en- 

joyed the spice and breadth which tiiey have 
added to the atinos|3here. 

But Foreign .students are almost forgotten at Wil- 
liams. Little is heard from them; few Williams 
students know more than a handful during their 
four years here and more than a handful of for- 
eign students are here. 

The lack of contact is certainly understandable. 
Williams is not an easy school, es])eeially when 
English is not your native language. No one 
wants to go to college where he is going to be 
on constant display. 

Nevertheless, the foreign student program is well 
worth reconsidering. Every year the Haystack 
Fund somehow seems to get the money in its 
student drive to support two scholars yet who 
knows who our Haystack students are? Should 
not the general student body benefit in some 
substantial way from its own international char- 

What about the foreign students themselves? 
They could gain from greater contact. There are 
many other places where they could get an aca- 
demically acceptable education. 

It's not enough to be unconscious of these stu- 
dents. At a large university such an attitude might 
be inescapable. At Williams it is unnecessary. 
The foreign students are here for a purpose or 
]5erhaps they should not be here. If we continue 
to sujjport them with scholarships, we should 
support them with a program during the year. 
We might even call them forth from the ghetto 
of the top floor of the dormitory and the isolated 
fraternity house. —editors

To the editor of the Record: 


Bravo for Mr. Steward's fine 
"Viewpoint" on Williamstown 
weather; it was very clever. 

But can we hope for an expan- 
sion of the theme perhaps? How 
about a crusade? Instead of pur- 
suing chimeras like non-compul- 
sory chapel, a campaign could be 
directed at a goal such as under- 
ground corridors between the 
buildings, heated and lined with 
Jackson Pollock's latest master- 
pieces. Marvelous ! The Ivory tower

A form of prayer 

Let me put forth to you a few 
questions in regard to your re- 
cent editorial about the chapel 
service last Sunday afternoon. 
First of all, do you consider say- 
ing the Lord's prayer In unison 
merely a "Parroting of phrases"? 
Do you look on the responsive 
reading of a psalm in the same 
light? And thirdly, have you ever 
been told that the worshipping of 
God does not consist of listening 
to a sermon, but In prayer, praise, 
and meditation? After all, wor- 
ship is one of the purposes of a 
chapel service. I agree with you 
whole-heartedly that the compul- 
sory aspect of these services makes 
it quite difficult for an attitude of 
worship to be obtained. However, 
I think that you have an exceed- 
ingly constricted picture of a lit- 
any and Its meaning. 

The litany is a form of prayer — 
responsive between congregation 
and minister. When it is regarded 
as prayer, and when the indivi- 
dual accepts the importance, or 
rather the significance of men 
praying together as a group, the 
litany loses its robot aspect. True, 

there must be a certain an 
of humility exercised befor. 
can say those responses will, 
cerity, and without hype 
Furthermore, no one is for(. 
say the responses, just as n, 
is forced to participate ii 
service, but merely to atteiu 
I'm sure that many people \ 
have gotten much more out ( 
vesper service, and contrii 
much more to it had they 
sidered the meaning of the 
uage of the litany — by no n 
trite, wishy-washy, or abstr 
and less what they saw to 
"robot approach".

an atmosphere of compiii

(FOB WILLIAMS!) . . . 

A tough cocky panel stormed out 
of secret training quarters in 
Hanover's Isolated Baker Library 
last Sunday to solidly defeat a 
(iiiUant, but overmatched Williams 
quartet. The scrappy Dartmouth 
.s(iuad played heads-up ball all 
tlie way, dominating the contest 
from the start. Out-conditioned, 
(Jilt-manned, out-played, the Pur- 
jile nevertheless brought credit to

"Take it Williams'." cried the an- 
nouncer, his scholarly spectacles 
(Innocent of any lenses) and his 
distinguished looking grey mane 
(dyed) flashing in the Klieg lights. 
The camera focused on Dave 
Steward's blank face. It remained 
blank. Absolutely, horrifyingly, 
hope-crushingly blank. There was 
no joy in Billville, Mighty Dave 
had struck out. 

Following an inspiring message 
from General Electric, friend of 
the common people, Dartmouth 
dominated play. The Ephmen's 
first scoring breakthrough came as 
former RECORD managing editor 
"Iron Joe" Wheelock identified 
Hirohito as a relative of a person- 
age named Nirohito. Logical mind, 
that Wheelock. Rugged Dean Mer- 
rill followed up this triumph by 
correcting a sentence. As time lan 
out in the first halt, Wheelock ex- 
hibited tricky broken field run- 
ning, identifying an historian 
first as Turner Jackson then as 
Jackson Turner to score. The stel- 
lar Wheelock, pausing only to pol- 
ish his glasses, then converted the 
20-point bonus question by cor- 
rectly identifying the Big Four of 
the Peace Conference of 1919 
iKukla, Fran, and Ollie— thats 
three . . . now let's think . . . we'll 
ask Joe, he knows). The half- 
I time score stood at Dartmouth 


155, Williams 53. 

After the spectacular half- 
time show, Dave Steward, tears 
glistening visibly in his big, brown 
eyes, described a small liberal arts 
college nestled in the friendly 
Berkshire Hills. Scenes of a beau- 
tiful sunlit campus, and laughing, 
ivy-covered students flashed on 
the screen. Several students broke 
down, and an unidentified Junior 
leaped up crying that he just had 
to transfer, and disappeared in 
the direction of Williamstown's 
answer to the Taj Mahal, Hop- 
kins Hall, which was mercifully 
omitted from the film. 

The announcer, then conducted 
a conversation with the contest- 
ants designed to inspire the 
younger generation to lay down 
their switchblades and take up 
books. In the course of this, it de- 
veloped that the entire Dartmouth 
team was on scholarship, "All for 
their records in high school," as 
the announcer said, shaking his 
liead in disbelief. This is obvious- 
ly a case of blatant overempha- 
sis, and we think that the Ivy 
League should follow the lead of 
the Big Ten and throw out these 
ringers. College for the Collegians! 

At the second half, well-con- 
ditioned Dean Merrill broke loose 
on a scoring run, identifying the 
Second Law of Thermodynamics 
and Helium as an element made 
up of alpha particles. Unfortun- 
ately, he was under the impression 
that Washington Gladden had lost 
his sight while doing missionary 
work among the Philistines, and

Dean Views Changing 
Foreign Student Plan 

BY lliV MAliCVS 

What is the philosophy behind 
our foreign student program? 
"That's a good question," Dean 
R. R. Brooks replied, "and it's one 
which the undergraduate body will 
have to decide.'' 

After World War II, Western 
Europe was physically and econo- 
ically devastated; unemployment 

I was high and production low. 

! Moving to relieve this situation, 

j the United States government in- 
stituted the Marshall Plan of aid 

I to Western Europe. In the spirit 
of this plan, the inter-fraternity 
council of Bowdoin College resolv- 
ed to implement their widely 
known "Bowdoin Plan" program, 
offering European students a Bow- 
doin education. 


Under the plan, the foriegn stu- 
dents were given free board by the 
fraternities, while room costs were 
absorbed by the entire student 
body. The Board of Trustees then 
agreed to tuition fees. The council 
urged other colleges in New Eng- 
land to adopt the program. Wil- 
liams did so in 1947, the purpose 
then being to train the student so 
that he could lead in reconstruc- 
tion of his war-torn state. 

That was 1947. Thirteen years 
later, Europe is once more ec- 
onomically stable and, in some 
cases, is progressing at an even 
faster rate than our own economy.

Thus the resultant question is: 
should we retain the old ideology 
and run our program along the 
same lines as '47? "This is the 
student's program," the Dean re- 
peated. "If they decide they still 
want the foreign student program, 
and I think they do, this problem 
is their concern." 


"There are various points of 
view that can be taken," the Dean 
continued. The first considers the 
fact that the European crisis has 
now settled down. Let us still con- 
tinue in the original vein, by turn- 
ing to other underprivileged areas. 
Let us turn now to the tropical 
zones of southeast Asia, north and 
central Africa, and Latin America, 
areas which will take many long 
years to develop. There, the edu- 
cated citizen has a greater oppor- 
tunity to use his training than in 
"intellectually stocked " western 

The Dean, the head of the 
Cluett graduate economics cen- 
ter, announced that this is the in- 
tent of the center. Ten students 
will be recruited throughout 
Southeast Asia. Six will come from 
Latin America, and tour from Af- 
rica. He indicated that a by-prod- 
uct of the recruiting for the grad- 
uate level could be securing capa- 
ble students for the undergradu- 
ate program. 


Another concept which may be 
forwarded is that it is the func- 
tion of the liberal education in- 
stitution to present a variety of 
cultures. That being the case, it 
is essential that there be true in- 
tegration of the foreign students 
into campus life. 

At the plan's inception, the for- 
eign students rotated among the 
houses, possibly visiting seven 
houses during the course of the 
year. Then one year, a fraternity 
asked the SC for permission to 
pledge a foreign student. This has 
since become a commonplace, with 
the result that foreign students 
are not able to mingle with the 
entire student body. 

Dean Brooks outlined the plans 
of the Cluett center with respect 
to the integration of the foreign 
students. Once a week, two for- 
eign students will be the guests at 
five fraternity houses, and in turn, 
ten undergraduates will be invi- 
ted to Cluett house.

'Waiting For Godot' Admirable 

The indefatigable energy of one 
Williams student. Stephen Pokart, 
made possible an admirable rendi- 
tion of Samuel Beckett's Waiting 
for Godot at BenninKton Monday 
night; and the highly commend- 
able Job of interpreting and di- 
recting done by Rex Parady turn- 
ed it into exciting theatre. 

Director Parady did more tiian 
this. He refused to slip into the 
pitfall of trying to infuse a hid- 
den truth behind every line. Yet 
he never let one get the feel 
ing that the play was merely a 
series of unconnected sketches. 
An underlying affection between 
the two tramps Gogo and Didi 
held them together. At moments 
they seemed pitifully in need of 
one another. This mutual bond 
pervaded the whole fabric of the

to score. After a prolonged scor 
ing binge by Dartmouth's star per 
former Bates and a tremendous 
Freshman Mapes, who made the 
varsity in his first year of Col- 
legiate competition, Dennis Mit- 
chel proved the top performer of 
the 2nd half as he fielded two 
tough questions, only to lose on a 
trick query, which was allegedly 
submitted by some subversive 
known as J. S. Dickey. Moments 
later, the announcer asked for a 
repeating biological term. "Agara- 
gar," gasped Mitchell in amaze- 
ment. "Correct!" cried the an- 
nouncer. The dumbfounded Mit- 
chell rallied to answer the next 
two questions, identifying Charles 
II as an apologetic King and the 
Sextant as a relative of the astro- 
labe. This fine performance 
rounded out the Eph scoring, and 
at the final buzzer, the score was: 
Dartmouth 315, Williams 160. 

In snow-bound Hanover, excited 
intellectuals will doubtless seize 
on this triumph as an excuse for 
soggy victory celebrations. Here, 
although there were disgruntled 
mumblings, and vague promises to 
pay more attention to Barber Shop 
comic books, there were no riots, 
no coaches hung in effigy. We 
realize that, as the announcer, 
typifying the spirit of The Olym- 
pics, Amateurism, Mother, and the 
Apple Pie, so aptly and originally 
stated, "It's only a game."

mentary strands into some co- 
herent (or nearly so) work of 

I have always thought that 
Lucky's speech in the play was to- 
tally incomprehensible. Monday 
night Cotton Fite succeeded in 
turning this long, disconnected 
soliloquy into a moment of spell- 
binding poetry. It was a shadow, 
macabre picture of a man's mind 
decayed or deranged, a moment 
of pathos cutting through the hu- 
mour for one short moment — and, 
an exquisite performance. 

The leads were handled Skill- 
fully by Stephen Pokart as Vla- 
dimir and Hrnrich Stabencau 
as Estragon. The most notewor- 
thy feature of Pokart 's job of 
acting was that he, much more 
than Stabeneau, was able to 
convey to the audience a sense 

of the genuine affection exist- 
ing between the two tramps. 
Stabeneau was at his best in his 
flippant remarks, in his satiric 
quips, and in his disgusted dis- 
interested attitude. He supplied 
many of the show's most humor- 
ous moments in this way. He was 
weakest trying to portray Ks- 
tragons affection for Didi and 
his own despair and suffering. 
The fleeting pathos inherent in 
the part was never made really 
believable through Stabrneau's 

John Czarnowski gave a thor- 
oughly enjoyable interpretation of 
Pozzo, the role that, as far as the 
writing goes, is the most dramatic 
in the whole play. His skillful 
manneristic touches served to 
heighten both the affectation and 
the repulsiveness of Pozzo.

Robert Mathews directed the 
pjoduction, and under the pseudo-

rile of Cleopatra's nurse Ptatate- 
e'.a with a light yet penetrating 
t'uch. The sets and costumes were 
d' signed by Patton Campbell, and

Eph Intellectuals Head For Nassau And Bermuda 
In Search Oi Cultural Stimulation, Chests Of Gold 

This spring two tours are being 
offered refugees of the Berkshire 
winter wishing to thaw out their 
frostbitten limbs in sunny climes. 

The group going on the travel 
bureau's Nassau trip will spend a 
week at the Royal Elizabeth Hotel. 
The vacationers are expected to 
divide their time equally between 
Dirty Dick's, an old bar on Bay 
Street and the favorite college 
meeting place, and the pool of the 
Royal Elizabeth, where attrac- 
tive companions and a calypso 
band are never far away. The 
straw market provides the stu- 
dent with an opportunity to ob- 
serve basket-weaving and other 
cultural aspects of native life. Fin- 
ally, those who really did come for 
the sun will find the .skin-divins, 
deep-sea fishing, and water-ski- 
ing both excellent and inexpensive. 


Dave Paresky's "College Week 
in Bermuda" tourers will fly to 
the island by jet viscount immedi- 
ately after classes Saturday. .Ac- 
tivities will include entertainment 
by the Talbot Brothers, a volley- 
ball tournament, a beauty contest, 
jazz competition, and finally a free 
cruise to Fort St. Catherine for 
contest-winner Phil Cohan. A few 
beach-loving stragglers, hoping to 
take advantage of a 6-1 girl-to-boy 
ratio, will stick it out an extra 
five days and return the Sunday 
after classes start.

Power On Economy And Population

italism'', the falling rate of profit 
with increased population. 

Thus, he arrived at the now 
widely accepted Keynesian ap- 
proach to the problem. In any 
economy, the necessary rate of 
capital investment is, in part, de- 
termined by the rate of private 
saving. In America this necessary 
rate is 5 per cent. However, our 
rate of population growth is only 
1 per cent and our rate of develop- 
ment of labor saving devices, or 
substitutes for labor, is only 1 and 
one-half per cent. The result of 
this disparity is periodic recession. 

There are several answers to the 
problem. We could raise consump- 
tion, thus bringing the rate of 
saving, and with it, the rate of 
investment down. This would 
solve the problem but would leave 
us with a slower developing econo- 
my. The other alternative is to at- 
tempt to increase population 
growth. This would eliminate re- 
cessions but it would raise certain 
problems. With an expanding 

population, we may be able to 
raise the standard of living, as we 
have done in America, but we 
must constantly fight to keep it 
from falling. 

We have. Power emphasized, 
plenty of time to think. "There is 
no imminent crisis in our econo- 
my." But we must avoid certain 
traps: the assumption that we 
are "stuck with institution and 
social standards inherited from 
the industrial revolution," an "ex- 
cessive concern with the egoism 
of the individual," and the "cow- 
ing of out thinking by the re- 
striction that our proposals be

I heartily agree with Les that a 
few avowed Marxists, advocating 
their views, would be a good idea 
here. They would strengthen the 
student's conception of his won- 
derful freedom, providing he was 
given such a conflict. 

However, I reject the central 
thesis of his writings, that there 
is a threat to academic freedom 
through the loyalty oath. The 
signers of the loyalty oath aren't 
going to be purged for learning or 
advocating communism, (i. e., the 
system, not the international 
movement to destroy free govern- 
ments forcibly). They're going to 
be put in jail tl hope) for perjury, 
i. e., belonging to an organiza- 
tion or advocating the same, dedi- 
cated to the illegal overthrow of 
our government, and saying they 
don't, under oath. "It is absurd to 
see any danger to academic free- 
dom in American students swear- 
ing loyalty to their government or 
disclaiming support of illegal ac- 
tivities. The action of some col- 
lege administrations in withdraw- 
ing from the Federal loan program 
for the purpose of not tempting 
students to disclaim criminal ac- 
tivities denies to those students 
the right to decide for themselves,

Clarence Chaffee. In a period of 
seven days starting March 21, the

against William and Mary, Duke, 
the Country Club of Virginia, 
North Carolina, and Virginia. 

Although positions on the team 
are as yet only tentative. Coach

Captained by Brian Lorenz, the 
team should be strong in the, 
sprints, 100 and 200 yard dashes, 
and high and low hurdles. Bill Pox 
in the discuss event, Walt Henry 
in the dashes, and hurdler Prank

will shotput for the team. 

The freshmen are expected to 
do very well, especially in the 
races from 100 yards to 880 yards, 
the pole vault, and the high jump. 
John Osbourne in the 440, Rich 
Ash in the 880, and Boots Deich-

Would you comment, please? 


Dear Dean: I was amazed, too. In my

Dear Dr. Frood: I am going out for the 
college play and have become interested 
in the "Method" school of acting. Could 
you tell me how this differs from ordi- 
nary acting? 


Dear Thesp: It is all a matter of how 
you throw yourself into your part. For 
instance, when playing "Pelcr Pan" the 
ordinary actor Hies through the air on

plays the role, wires arc unnecessary.

World Art Exhibition 
Features Abstractions 

"Each painting is like a differ- 
ent individual; each has its own 
character. In order to fully ap- 
preciate these paintings, you must 
get acquainted with them just as 
you would individuals at a cock- 
tail party." Tao Ho, a senior and 
an artist himself, was speaking of 
The Little International Exhibi- 
tion now on display at Lawrence 
Hall. This exciting group of paint- 
ings, which will be in Williams- 
town until the nineteenth of this 
month, represents some of the 
best examples of contemporary 
creativity on both sides of the At- 

The abstractions are generally 
of two tyoes. The first of which 
"White Nc. 1" is an example, Tao 
Ho defined as a "controlled ac- 
cident." The artist, starting with 
a blank canvas, gives free rein to 
his creativity. He then looks at 
his work, and drawing i:pon the 
emotional effect conveyed to him, 
completes the painting. "Sea's 
Edge" is an example of the "New 
Illusion" in which an outside ob- 
ject or scene is used as a source of 
original stimulation and is then 
transformed into another identity. 
Modern art, unlike the tradi- 
tional style of painting, docs not 
attempt to represent an external 
object. Each painting is unique 
and exists only for and in Itself. 
Thus the "Sea's Edge" represents 
not a sea.scape, but a certain har- 
monious blend of colors found on- 
ly in that creation. Abstraction 
acknowledges no limits of time or 
space. Of all art, modern paint- 
ing is most directly related to the 
artist since he is free to select 
his own logic or method of per- 

Too many people, Tao said, 
make the mistake of trying to 
"understand" a picture through 
its title. In most cases, the artist 
has no idea of the end result of 
his work when he begins to paint. 
Sometimes the title refers only to 
the object of original stimulation 
and bears no relation to the cen- 
tral theme of the painting. Often 
after a painting has been com- 
pleted, the artist will ask people 
to suggest titles which occur to 
them while viewing it. Each is a 
separate world in itself and should 
affect each individual In a dif- 
ferent manner. The value of ab- 
stract art, as compared with the 
traditional style, is that It Is free 
and undefined. 

Registration For Fall 
To Be Consummated 
From April 11 To 15 

Registration for courses for the 
coming fall semester will take 
place from April 11 to 15. Students 
will find information on iregistra- 
tion available at the Registrar's 
Office. An Announcement ol 
Courses and a description of the 
change in the course numbering 
system have already been publish- 
ed. Instructions for registration 
and a notice to each student of 
any remaining divisional require- 
ments will be made available 
April 8. 

Those sophomores desiring to 
do honors work must obtain the 
consent of their prospective major 
departments. The student must 
have made an average grade of B 
for his two most recent semesters 
in the major department, vvith 
neither grade below B-. In addi- 
tion, he must have received at 
least six grades of B- or better in 
the two semesters preceding the 
admissions to honors work. 

Whether planning honors work 
or not, all sophomores, as well as 
juniors are required to register 
with their chosen major depart- 
ment. Freshmen will register with 
their faculty advisor. There is a 
fine of ten dollars for late regis- 
tration, while anyone who changes 
a course after registration must 
lorfeit five dollars. 

Physics Majors Obtain 
Graduate Scholarships 

Deane Menill '60 and two 1958 Williams graduates have won 
National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowships in physics for 
the 1960-61 academic year. In addition, four seniors, likewise all 
physics majors, were bestowed honorable mentions.

Curriculum Committee Plans Dartmouth Trip 
To Study Feasibility Of Trimester System 

"Our purpose is to study the tri- 
si mester system at Dai-tmouth and 
I'Hd out the feasibility of such a 
wstem at Williams. The big ques- 
tion is whether trimesters, a four 
course-two semester system, or 
any other program is favorable. 
We're sort of up in the air at the 
moment," said Stu Levy, chair- 
man of the student curriculum 
committee. His committee will vis- 
it Dartmouth Wednesday, April 6. 

Tlie Williams student curricu- 
lum committee has been studying 
established currlculums of other 
schools. They feel that this prepa- 
lation is necessary for them to 
make qualified recommendations 
to the faculty curriculum commit- 
tee. Levy emphasized that the aim 
of the committee is not necessari- 
ly to find a new curriculum, but 
rather, to decide what curriculum 
Is best for Williams. Meetings with 

student body have been arranged 
to discuss this three term program 
which is now in its second year. 

Speaking for his committee 
concerning the trimester system, 
Stu said, "We like It, but there 
are as yet many drawbacks." Since 
it is the committee's job to study 
the situation, rather than make 
haphazard choices. Levy and his 
committee members have studied 
.systems at various schools includ- 
ing the four course two semester 
system at Middlebury (new this 
year) and the quarterly system at 
Antioch. The trimester system at 
Goucher has also been investiga- 

Besides Senior Levy, three other 
comjTiittee members will attend 
the conference ana are: Senior, 
Mike Beemer; Junior, Dorian 
Bowman, Secretary; and Sopho- 

the faculty, administration, and I more. Jack Sabln. 

Conference Features 
Liberal Commager vs. 
Conservative Buckley 

"A student program at Williams 
College to confront with realistic 
concern and responsible action the 
crucial issues of today's world," 
said Mike Dively, chairman of the 
Critical Issues Conference com- 
mittee, adapting the slogan of 
Yale's "Challenge" program to 
describe Williams' forthcoming 
conference, April 21 and 22. 

The topic selected for the Wil- 
liams Critical Issues Conference 
is "Liberalism and Conservatism 
in America Today." On Thursday 
night, the spotlight will fall on 
Professor Henry Steele Commager, 
noted American historian at Am- 
herst, who will present "The Lib- 
eral Mind." On Friday night, Wil- 
liam F. Buckley, Jr., editor of the 
National Review, will counter with 
"The Conservative Mind." 

"The conferences on world af- 
fairs were prominent before the 
war," noted Dively. Under the aus- 
pices of the Liberal Club, directed 
by Professor William B. Gates '39, 
then an undergraduate, a round 
table forum was held regularly be- 
tween students and faculty on cur- 
rent topics which were too recent 
to be discussed in the classroom. 

Both speeches will be followed 
by a question period divided into 
two parts. In the first part, the 
evening's speaker will be Inter- 
rogated by two questioners. Dean 
of Freshmen, William G. Cole, and 
a local Republican businessman 
still to be announced, who will 
endeavor through their questions 
to further clarify the basic posi- 
tion taken by the speaker. The 
second portion of the question 
period will throw the floor open 
to queries from the floor. Dively 
will preside, and the welcoming 
ceremonies will be performed by 
Dr. Samuel A. Matthews, Chair- 
man Pro Tempore of the faculty. 

On 10:30 Friday night, the is- 
sues raised by the speakers will 
be featured as the conference will 
shift to three fraternity houses. 
All students. Including freshmen, 
will be invited to engage in discus- 
sions led by members of the facul- 
ty. They include Professors 
Chandler, Qaudlno. Schuman, 
Scott, and Wegner. 

Brilliant Program 
By Kroll Quartet 


Friday night's concert provided 
a brilliant reminder of the fact 
that there are other string quar- 
tets of consequence In this world 
besides the Budapest. The per- 
formance of Mozart's Clarinet 
Quintet in A Major by the Ki'oll 
Quartet with David Glazer as- 
sisting on clarinet should long re- 
main one of the most memorable 
events in the history of concerts 
at Williams. 

All the graceful civilization of 
this piece was brought out by 
a happy combination of real sen- 
sitivity to tlie elegance of the 
Mozartian melody and a meticu- 
lous attention to clarity of phras- 
ing. The transition from the Lar- 
ghetto to the Menuetto demon- 
strated particular taste and con- 
trol. Mr. Glazer is especially to be 
complimented on his clean attack 
and tone and on his ability to 
merge his instrument with the 
rest of the group when the melo- 
dic interest did not center on him. 

Easley Blackwood's String Quar- 
tet No. 1 was a very interesting 
piece showing strong affinities to 
the style of Stravinsky. This was 
apparent in the sharply punctua- 
ted rhythm, the ingenious rhythm- 
ic variations, and the device of 
giving two instruments the same 
theme in dissonant intervals. The 
Quartet was particularly notable 
for a great range of dramatic ef- 
fects: from the menacing largo to 
the pizzicato jesting at the end 
of the second movement. It would 
be good if more modern music had 
the interest and comprehensibility 
for a lay audience that Mr, Black- 
wood's quartet showed. 

The performance of the Brahms 

Quintet for Piano and Strings in 

F minor, with Mr. Griswold at the 

piano, was less pleasing than the

partment chairman, stated, "we 
are very pleased to have the three 
winners and four honorable men- 
tions, considering the vast number 
of people who applied for these 
grants." Professor Winch, said 
"We are very proud that this 
year's class in Physics has made 
such an outstanding showing and 
we expect several eminent physi- 
cists from the group." 

The Class of '58 winners are 
Alexander L. Fetter of Philadel- 
phia and Stuart J. B. Crampton 
of Greenwich, Connecticut. The 
honorable mentions went to John 
Randolph, Robert Garland, David 
Rust and Thomas White. 

Merrill, who is editor of the 
Williams Review, a Jr. Phi Bete 
and an undergraduate teaching 
assistant in the Physics Depart- 
ment, will use his fellowship to 
study for a Ph. D. in nuclear phy- 
sics at the University of Califor- 
nia in Berkely. 

Fetter is currently studying at 
Balliol College, Oxford, on a 
Rhodes Scholarship and Cramp- 
ton is at Worcester College, Ox- 
ford, under a Carroll Wilson 
Scholarship. Both will return to 
the U. S. to undertake graduate 
studies as National Science Foun- 
dation Fellows. 

The National Science Founda- 
tion awards 1100 fellowships an- 
nually with stipends of $1800 for 
a first year fellow increasing to 
$2200 the third year. Candidates 
are recommended to the National 
Science Foundation by committees 
of scientists of the National Ac- 
ademy of Sciences and the Na- 
tional Research Council. 

The fellowships, for advanced 
study and training in the natural 
sciences, both basic and applied, 
and certain of the social sciences, 
are available to college seniors,

French Players Open 
' Fantasio ' Next Weefe 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, the 
12th and 13th of April, the Wil- 
liam.; College "French Players" 
will perform MoUet's comedy Fan- 
tasio in the AMT, 

The director. Professor Jack 
Savacool, says the production is 
a "romantic play which makes 
fun of romantic conventions and 
enables its author to laugh at 
these conventions and at the same 
time to enjoy them. Being a ro- 
mantic play, it is about a group 
of dandies and a sad prince being 
forced into a marriage with a stu- 
pid princess to prevent a war. The 
fun comes in the way that MoUet 
sets up a situation and then does- 
n't follow through on It. Nothing 
works out in the way it would be 
supposed to if the romantic trad- 
ition were followed." 

This production of the rarely- 
done ironic comedy will make use 
of a musical score by another 
ironic romanticist, Jacques Offen- 
bach. The score has been orches- 
trated by Eddie Brash, and the 
Choral Directors for the produc- 
tion are Victor Yellin and Bill 

The title role Is being played by 
Tony Mapes. Other leading play- 
ers are Charles Van der Burgh,

Gifford, George Aid, and John 

Discuss Problem 
Created By Draft 

"The temptation to play "draft 
Roulette" — to lie low, say nothing, 
and hope to reach the magic age 
of 26 before one's number comes 
up is a game that plays havoc 
with nerves and self-respect,'' 
Newsweek Magazine noted in its 
April 4th issue. 

Henry N. Plynt, Jr. Williams 
College expert on drafting affairs, 
admitted that after a man gradu- 
ates from college he usually must 
wait until he hits the draftable 
age of 22)4-23. He suggested, "If 
one doesn't want to wait, to go in 
for six months, or try for a com- 
mission, he should ask his local 
draft board to Induct him volun- 
tarily after his graduation." He 
noted that each region has a quota 
which they fill from the top of 
their list, drafting the oldest eli- 
gible men first. 

The Newsweek report noted that 
most employers don't want to hire 
a "1-A" and that employment 
agencies are still more outspoken. 
According to the magazine fresh 
college graduates themselves say 
flatly there is almost no chance 
of getting a decent job during the 
months of limbo between gradua- 
tion and when Uncle Sam's greet- 
ings arrive. 

Manton Copeland, Placement 
Bureau head, said, "I vehemently 
deny this." He went on to say, 
"Companies are out scouring for 
talent no mutter what the military 
situation. We have had 110 re-

Painful alternatives 

Newswcck's recent article on the U, S, Selective 
Service system stressed several very iin)i()rtant 

Todai/'s college students are certainhj patriotic. 
They would be willinj^ to serve their country it 
tliey could plan on a time; and if so many of their 
contein|)oraries were not exempted. The effect 
of the ]5reseiit law is to make it almost a crime 
to be 22, healthy, single, out of school, and in 
an "inessential" occupation. 

The "terrible iinccrtainti/ and confusion" is es- 
pecially aggravatin'^. It is difficult for the jrrad- 
uate to do any jjlanning for his future life with 
the prosjiect in sij^ht of being seized out of the 
blue at some unknown instant in the next few 
years— or maybe never at all. 

Students have a more-or-less justified fear that 
being drafted will endanger their careers. How 
seriously eligible for the draft restricts job o\-)- 
portunities is ()|Den to question. Men view with 
ajjijrehension, however, the "head start" others 
gain in business by their ineligible status for the 

The man who ohet/s the law maij be out of luck. 
If the college student files for deferment, as he 
was once supposed to do, he is eligible until he's 
35. he probably won't be taken until 
he's graduated and he's only eligible until he's 26. 

Newsweek did not mention the greatest ])roblem 
for the college student in any military duty. He 
does not relish spending two t/ears of his life in 
an organization based on ideas and talents com- 
pletely contrari/ to his own. 

As its i^roponents do not hesitate to tell us, the 
draft is necessary to keep enlistments up to ]5ar. 
Geneial Hershey, director of Selective Service, 
says, "I'm afraid that all this talk objecting to 
the draft is some more of our softness— the desii-e 
to do no work." 

The nation's futiue de]5ends upon its youth, of 
which college graduates are an important ]jart. It 
is not "softness" to give them a fair break in the 
draft. Uncertainty leads to indecision, a form of 
softness itself. A system which encourages the 
most educated members of the community to try 
to avoid national service does not aid national 
strength. To force college students to forget their 
education for seveial years is not to develoji 
this resource. 

The immediate answer to uncertainty may lie 
in greater standardization of the often erratic 
local draft boards. The answer to the students' 
problem might be better alternatives for g()\eni- 
ment ser\icc, perhaps outside the military field. 
College graduates would be of much more use 
to the nation and tiiemseKes in an office rather 
than on a gun. The long-range answer could be 
some form of universal national service or the 
abolition of the draft. 

The system is unsatisfactory. It is hard to be- 
lieve that it is the only solution to the necessity 
of a permanent military service. 


Just lukewarm ? 

just before vacation the College Council decided 
to siKJiisor again the annual series of jjre-regis- 
tration conferences with the various depart- 
ments. They did it very half-heartedly because 
they couldn't really seem to think of any reason 
not to. Tiie various departments have decided 
when they will hold their meetings and the Dean 
has announced the schedule. There doesn't seem 
to be much enthusiasm about the meetings from 
them either because so often in the past thev 
have been either jjoorly attended or of no real 

They could be productive for all concerned if 
so]oliomores and freshmen went to them pre 
):)ared to ask good cpiestions. There are things 
which are not in the catalogue and which can be 
found out at these confeiences. Go if you are in- 
terested and contribute. Otherwise there is ab- 
solutely no reason to continue them just because 
somebody once thought they were a ]>rett}- good 


To the editor of the RECORD 

Very Few Christians 

Almost everybody liked what Bill Coffin had 
to say in Chaj^el recently, and almost nobody 
was glad they had heard Dr. Charles Malik of 
Lebanon. Unfortunately in your editorials you 
dealt with these S]Deeches by saying you couldn't 
understand Dr. Malik because of his accent and 
by alleging that students were inattentive to 
Mr. Coffin's remarks.

Malik's accent only contributed 
to the total incomprehensibility 
of what lie was saying. He talked 
about stamping out remnants of 
some big Christian heresies of the 
past. He made the fatal assump- 
tion that he was speaking to de- 
vout Christians; people who would 
immediately know of what his- 
torical movements he was speak- 
ing and who would share his de- 
sire for the extinction of heresy. So 
everybody went to sleep cursing 
the Chapel organization because 
Malik wasn't very interesting to 

On the other hand, everybody 
pricked up wlien Mr. Coffin .shout-

right, but he knows that in -ntje,.

On Campus 


(Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf", "The Many

Twinkly, lovable old Dr, Wagstaff .Sifiiifoos, head of clieniLstry 
at tlie U))i)or Rliode Isliiiul CoiicKe of Science and I'ulniiMtry, 
cares naught for glory and wcaltli. All ho cures al)()Ut is to work 
in liLs laboratory, to i)lay Mozart (luartets with a few cronies, 
to smoke a good Marlboro, and to throw sticks for lii.s faithful 
dog Trey to fetch. 

Ko when, after }'cars of patient rescardi, Dr. Sigafoos dis- 
covered, a ,sliaving cream wliich caii,so.s whiskers to 
grow inward instead of outward, thus onal)liiig a man to bite 
ofT liis beard instead of sliaving it, it never even crossed lii.s 
niiiul that ho had conio upon a key to fame and riches; lie simply 
assigned all his royalties from Hcvorso to the college and went 
on with his quiet lil'e of working in the laboratory, playing 
Mozart quartets, smoking good Marlhoros and throwing stick.s 
for his faithful dog Trey. (Trey, incidentally, had died .some 
years earlier but habit is a strong thing and Dr. Sigafoos to 
this day continues to throw sticks.) 

As everyone knows, lUworso turned out to lioa madly success- 
ful shaving cream. Royalties in the first month amounted to 
$290,000, which came in mighty handy, boliexc you me, because 
the college had long boon i)o.sti)oning some urgently needed 
rejiairs— a lightning rod for the nien'.s dormitory, new liooi)s for 
the basketball court, leather patches for the chess team's elbows 
and a penwiper for the Director of Admissions, 



In the second month royalties amounted to an even million 
dollars and the college bought Marlboro cigarettes for all 
students and faculty menihcrs. It is interesting that the college 
chose Marlboro cigarettes though they could well have afforded 
more e.\pensive brands. The reason is simply tliis: you can pay 
more for a cigarette but you can't get a better fla\-or, a better 
smoke. If you think flavor went out when filters came in, try 
a Marlboro. The filter cigarette with the unfiltered taste. You, 
too, can smoke like a millionaire at a cost whicli docs no violence 
to the slimmest of budgets. Marlboros come in soft pack or 
flip-top box and can be found at any tobacco counter. Million- 
aires can be found on yachts. 

But I digress. We were speaking of the royalties from 
Reverse which continue to accrue at an astonishing rate-now 
in excess of one million dollars per week. The college is doing all 
It can to spend the money; the student-faculty ratio which used 
to be thirty students to one teacher is now thirty teachers to 
one student; the Gulf Stream has been purchased for the 
Department of Marine Biology; the Dean of Women has been 

But money does not buy happiness, especially in the college 
world. Poverty and ivy-that is the academic life-not power 
and pelf. The Upper Rhode Island College of Science and 
Palmistry is frankly embarrassed by all this wealth, but I am 
pleased to report that the trustees are not taking their calamity 
lying down. Last week they earmarked all royalties for a crash 
research program headed by Dr, Wagstaff Sigafoos to develop 
a whisker which is resistant to Reverse. Let us all join in wish- 
ing the old gentleman success. *i»«> M..Bhiita»»

can offer you fine smoking flavor-with or icitliout filter. It

/))• MOimiS KAPLAN 
"The next President will win 
office this fall on a platform pled- 
ging hard leadership, leadership 
that will rally Americans during 
the 1960s behind a rigorous pro- 
gram for national strength and 
survival.'' Thus does Professor 
James M. Burns of the Williams 
College Political Science Depart- 
ment begin his "Memo to the Pres. 
ident", the third and final article 
in a series dealing with the "fatal 
gap between the Congress and the 
presidency" in the April issue of 
The Atlantic Monthly. 

The problem with which Burns 
deals is not the platform which 
will elect our next president, but 
rather the means by which he will 
bridge "the inevitable chasm be- 
tween White House and Capitol 
Hill, with most of his promises still 
to be redeemed." The President, 
pledged to a program of liberal 
and far-reaching political reform 
will encounter a Congress that 
will lean toward a more conserva- 
tive approach than his own. 

Burns suggests that the next 
President, whether he be a Dem- 
ocrat or a Republican, will have to 
find even more effective means 
of dealing with a reluctant Con- 
gress; such means will succeed in 
"modernizing the American politi- 
cal system." The materials for 
this "brilliant stroke of creativity" 
are the millions of voters who

Dear Dr. Frood: Do you believe in the 
theories that Shakespeare was actually 
either Marlowe or Bacon'.'

Dear English: All rot. I have done con- 
siderable research on the subject and can 
prove that Marlowe was actually Bacon, 
and that Bacon (who was a bit of a ham) 
was, in rciility . Marlowe, and that Shake- 
speare, an itinerant ^rape squeezer who 
could neither read nor write, was, in fact.

Dear Dr. Frood: I have a very serious 

personal problem. 1 am secretly engaged 

to three students here. Just between you

who is married. What should I do'.'

Dear Millicent: Your secret is safe with

ever, you'll never get Bowdley. I wrote 
Mrs. Bowdley about the situation, in 
order to advise you better, and she says 
Professor Bowdley is too old for you.

Dear Put: Light both ends. 




Dear Dr. Frood: I am just a little bit 
worried about exams. I have not attended 
any classes this semester. I have not 
done any reading, either. I must be in 
Aiken for the polo matches until the day 
before exams and, of course, will be 
unable to study. Any suggestions? 



Dear Buzzy: Do you think professors' 
hearts arc made of stone? Just tell them 
what you told me. I am sure they will 
understand, and if they don't excuse you 
altogether from exams, they certainly will 
arrange some nice little oral quiz you can 
take at your leisure later on in the summer.

elect the President and then can 
do no more politically. The 
"stroke" to which Burns refers is 
a drastic reorganization of the 
two-party system in America. 

"The new parties would become 
agencies for translating party 
platform into national policy." 
They would be national groups 
interested in national issues and 
designed to support and maintain 
presidential candidates and their 
policies. Their concern woi;ld be 
primarily with the Presidency and 
the Congress; their aim, to (guar- 
antee a legislature pledged to sup- 
port presidential policy. These 
national parties would avoid local 
entanglements and be responsible 
to their membership, their pro- 
gram, and their historic tradition. 
The reorganization that Burns 
proposes will admittedly be a dif- 
ficult feat. However, he points to 
several factors that are "running 
in the direction of a more central- 
ized and responsible national poli- 
ties": "These trends make nation- 
al party reorganization possible if

cruiting organizations here, each 
knowing we have almost no vet- 

Recruiting amounts to a long 
term investment. "The vast ma- 
jority of firms are anxious to get 
people started in their training 
programs," Copeland pointed out. 

The Newsweek article said; 
"Where the question of fatherhood 
is cc.ioerned, tliere is simply no 
w'ay 01 knowing when a young 
man has cynically and deliberate- 
ly got himself married and started 
a family strictly for draft avoid- 
ance." Plynt pointed out that 
many Williams men do get mar- 
ried when they are in graduate 
school, but he doubted that more 
than a very few did it simply to 
avoid the draft. 

Flynt mentioned one "in soon,- 
out soon" method which is gain- 
ing in popularity, the Coast Guard 
plan which creates officers in four 
months of OCS and puts them on 
active reserve after only six 
months of active duty. 

He went on to say that the 
draft is not at all an important 
source of manpower (about 15 
per cent), but that without it 
volunteering would drop off.

Chapin Exhibits Highlights In History Of Printing | Enh Goes Mad Ave. 

The Clmpin Library exhibit for ..pRUTi ■,•««" ^ -Li pii V^V^VyO ±TJ.V«.^.a x».TX_>« 

The Clmpin Library exhibit for 
April, entitled "Prom Clay Tab 
lets to Photo-Composition," shows 
the progress of writing techniques 
in the past 4,300 years. 

A highlight of the exhibit is a 
Uaf from the original Johann 
Gutenberg Bible. Printed in 145G. 
il is generally believed to be the 
first book made with movable 
tyi-ie in the western world. 

Also shown is the first illustra- 
tcii edition of EucUd's Elcmcnta 
(1482), and a boolc by Berhard von 
Bieydenbach, Travels in tlie Holy 
Liiiid, which in 1480 was tlie first 
"iiavelogue" ever printed. 


Richard Archer, custodian of 
the library, explained, "Most of 
these books are worth hundreds of 
dollars, many are worth thousands. 
But their real value lies in the 
tact that they are irreplaceable in 
that .sense they are priceless." 

The exhibit begins with a clay 
cuneiform tablet from Nippur, cir- 
ca 2,350 B. C. Next are examples 
of handwritten manuscripts and 
early printed books. These are 
followed by representatives of 
printing methods as they devel- 
oped up to tlie middle of the 19th 
century. The final section demon- 

strates the sweeping advances 
which have been made In the field j 
of printing since the last scienti- i 
fie revolution. i 

These advances are largely re- 
sults of the development of photo- 
graphy. The exhibit includes sev- 
eral samples of photo-composition, 
a technique which completely el- 
iminates movable type from the 
printing process. 

Archer ob.served, "Exhibits of 
this sort are not uncommon at 
large museums and universities, 
but at a .school the size of Williams 
we are very fortunate in being able 
to present such a collection."

Crass Madison Avenue com- 
mercialism: one can't escape from 
it in today's world. How can I 
face my friends when they dis- 
cover that my picture has been 
used in an advertisement display- 
ed recently by the mundane, sub- 
urban Life magazine, and on bill- 
boards in 150 cities. How can I 
face these same friends, when they 
discover that I'm supposed to look 
like the happy 100 per cent, AU- 
American, "cheek of tan" kid, who 
used to climb trees and walk fen- 
ces, kept frogs in his pockets, and 
hated company and going to 
church because he had to put on 
itchy pants — the kind of guy who 
says "golly," and "amazing." 


The picture was taken this sum- 
mer in Chicago lyes, I know: 
gangsters and wind). Perhaps I 
was chosen because I look like the 
kind of guy who would think of 
eating sandwiches with that 
beautiful blonde. Incidentially, if 
you haven't seen the ad, I am 
shown sharing a two-page "poor- 
boy" sandwich with a most de- 
lightful looking friend. We are 
having wholesome American fun 
after a movie at the Bijou. (Next 
we pull taffy.) 


America has been fooled by that 
girl! She looks beautiful, spunky. 

and a professional 16 year-old, 
who is actually "... out of school, 
20, and married." (Her quotes.) 

What could very well be recogni- 
tion a few years ago has grown 
to notoriety in today's critical so- 
ciety. In these days of the youth- 
ful cynic I have been informed of 
(1) my deformed right ear; <2) 
my thin wrists; and (3) my big 
mouth. I am also in a somewhat 
ideal position to make a compara- 
tive study of the comments I hear. 
Invariably I am asked, "Did'ja git 
to eat the sand'ich?" or "Who is 
that girl?" These two prelimin- 
aries are usually followed with 
"■you look different from the side 
than you do from the front." One 
of my favorites is accompanied 
with the jesting "me and the 
boys" elbow jab to the ribs. First 
he says, "I'll bet ya' couldn't wait' 
til'ya' got to the other end of the 
sandwich," this is followed by 
that elbow action to the ribs and 
then I laugh. 


I've said all I want to say, ex- 
cept buy the magazine; tell all 
your friends about it. Write home 
to all your relatives. Inform the 
alumni association. Then, I might 
be able to defeat Nixon. 

And if you are worried about 
this whole business going to my 
head, I had better assure you that 
I'm still humble.

McHenry Lauds Trip; 
Lacrosse Attack Sound 

"A successful trip," was the ver- 
dict of Coacli Bill McHenry, re- 
capping the results of the recent 
southerly sojourn of the Williams 
lacrosse team. 

Hampered by bad weather and 
lack of practice, the squad got off 
to a bad start, losing two scrim- 
mages to Army, last year's co-ua- 
tional champs. Moving on to Bal- 
timore, the team bested the third 
string of last year's national open 
champions, the Mount Washington 
Lacrosse Club, followed by a loss 
to co-champ John Hopkins. In a 
scrimmage against Baltimore, the 
Eph defense sparked a 6-4 vic- 
tory. McHenry was encouraged by 
Dick Gallop, John Horst, Dick Mc- 
Cauley, Win Healy, Tom Milling- 
ton, and goalie Pete Stanton. 


In their only regular scheduled 
game of the trip, the stickmen 
overwhelmed Washington College, 
16-4, with co-captain George 
Boynton accounting for 5 goals 
and 4 assists.

"With luck, we should have a 
very good season," commented 
tennis coach Clarence Chaffee af- 
ter his team returned from their 
successful (4-2) spring trip. 

The team opened with an 8-1 
victory over William & Mary. 
Clyde Buck, nursing a blister on 
his racquet hand throughout the 
trip, lost at the No. 1 spot. Wins 
in singles were provided by John 
Botts, Bruce Brian, Bob Mahland, 
Greg Tobin, and John Leathers.

Captain Tobin and Bob Rubin, 
Mahland and Bob Pyle, and Tom

B;;rk was unable to compete a- 
pain-t Duke, and the Ephs lost. 
6-3. Only Tobin triumphed in the 
singles; later he combined with 
Brian to win in doubles. Boyden 
and Rubin played together for 
the other win. 


The Ephman next took on a 
well-practiced North Carolina 
team. Brian, Toljin, and Leathers 
each won in singles; Botts-Mah- 
land, and Buck-Boyden won in 
doubles; Williams won, 5-4. 

The following day the Tarheels 
reversed the score and nipped the 
Purple, 5-4. Tobin continued his 
effective ways, winning in singles 
and linking witli Brian to bring 
a doubles victory. Other Ephs

Chi Psis Lead Kaps 
By 1 In Iniramurais 

As the battle for the intramurals 
championship for 1959-60 heads 
into the final lap, a thrilling bat- 
tle to the wire seems to be form- 
ing between the Chi Psi's and the 
Kap's. With only four champion- 
ships remaining to be decided, the 
Chi Psi semi-athletes hold a .slim 
81 to 80 edge over the Kap's. 

Although the Chi Psi .squad has 
taken only two champion.ships and 
the KAPS have taken three, the 
edge is caused by the fact that 
the Chi Psi wins have come in 
Hocl;ey and Football, which are 
rated as major sports and give the 
winner 20 points. The second place 
aggregation, on the other hand, 
has captured two lesser sport titles 
worth 15 points each and one in- 
dividual elimination victory, worth 
5 points to the winner.

WMS Now Safe From FCC Action; 
Classics, Jazz To Replace 'Trash' 

WMS has called in a consulting engiiieei', Thomas Durfev, in 
an attem|)t to alleviate the prohk'm of ovcr-ratliating. The move 
was made after a I"\'deial CoimnnnieatioMs Commission inspector 
reported that the college AM radio |

strength exceeding the federal 

Tliore is no immediate danger 
th;il the station will Ro off the 
air The FCC has stated that no 
move of this kind will be made 
wliile WMS is testing in hopes of 
rectifying the situation. After 
making many field streiigtli mea- 
suri'ments during spring recess, 
Durfey has come to the conclusion 
that the station can correct its 

At present, WMS is making 
numerous tests in an effort to 
solve the problem. Transmitting 
power is being monitored with 
reiidings taken every half hour. 
Mranwhile, Durfey is designing 
niA circuits which he hopes will 
cliar up the difficulty, 

riie station has received no 
complaints concerning ti'ansmis- 
si'i! strength from sources outside 
tl FCC. WMS technical director 
Ri- or Chaffee revealed that tests 
sl)ntted the station interfered with 
on'v one other, WSN in Nashville, 
Tl nncssee. Chaffee also quoted 
D.ifey's comment "WMS is pretty 
cl'.-e to the most legal college sta- 
tit il I have sei n." 

l:i line with the station's policy 
of iitting down on "trash", a new 
Wus program scheduled with in- 
cv a.sed emphasis on jazz and 
cli: ,sical music has been formu- 
la U'd. The popular music hour 
fr iini 5 to 6 has been replaced by 
a !iizz show. 

A new feature will be "Music 
for a Quiet Hour", one hour of 
uninterrupted instrumental en- 
tirtainment from midnight 
tlnough one. The station will be 
working closely with the Thomp- 
S'l 1 Concert Committee in plan- 
f'ng its classical program. The;al schedule will also coin- 
cide with works In Music 201-202.

Baxter Favors Nixon: Calls Him 
Best Prepared For Hardest Job 

Frontiers Of Science 

In place of Its regular Wed- 
nesday issue the RECORD will 
publish a special edition, 
"Frontiers of Science", next 
Wednesday, April 13. Consist- 
ing of articles written by fac- 
ulty members of the science de- 
partments, the pamphlet will 
present some significant areas 
of current scientific research. 

Al Bogatay. '61. chairman of the 
rushing committee, presented his 
committee's proposals for the 1960 
Rushing Agreement to a joint 
meeting of the College and So- 
cial Councils on Monday night. 
Most of the new segments of the 
proposal were merely putting into 
action the proposals passed last 
fall legislating total opportunity. 

Two .sections were new, however, 
dealing with the possibility of so- 
cial memberships in the second 
semester for sophomores who have 
failed to list fifteen houses and 
bounced through the system. A 
proposal to forbid social member- 
ships to these people or to sopho- 
mores who depledge was defeated 
after the fraternities were polled 
this week. 

The only other change from 
previous years is one in the 
method for determining the quota. 
The new system— a minimum or 
division method— when every one 
is bid. one or more houses may 
have an increased quota. In such 
a case the houses receiving the 
extra men would be those of the 
lowest numerical membership. 

Eph Crew Tops Princeton, Penn, 
Navy For Cup In McMillan Races 

hi) Tohij Smith 
A smooth vvoikiug and spirited Williams crew brought home one of iutci'collegiate sailing's 
most coveted trophies last weekend by outsailing nine other eastern colleges and universities in 

the -Jlst \nnual McMillan Cup Haces held at the United States 

Naval .Academy in .\ima])olis, 

Williams compiled 27 points in 
the three race series to beat 
Princeton, finishing second with 
24 points and Penn in third place 
with 23. The other teams in their 
order of finish were Navy, Brown, 
Kings Point, Yale, Boston Uni- 
versity, Columbia, and Coast 

The Williams crcw, skippered by 
Toby Smith '60. sailed the Acad- 
emy's Ludersbuilt 44-foot yawls 
to a first, second and sixth in over 
38 miles of racing on Chesepeake 
Bay. Aft?r the first two races on 
Saturday, Williams held a 2 point 
lead over Princeton and a four 
i;oint lead over Brown. In the final 
race Princeton finished seventh 
behind Williams to add to a sec- 
ond and a third the day before. 

The first race was sailed on 
Saturday morning over an eight 
mile course in winds of 10-15 mph. 
Williams rounded the first mark 
third behind Princeton and Kings 
Point. The excellent spinnaker 
work of the crew, however, cut the 
lead by the time the three had 
rounded the last mark. On the 
final leg of the course, Princeton, 
Williams, and Kings Point were 
never separated by more than six 
feet and all three finished within 
two seconds of each other. Kings 
point nosed out Williams by five 
feet while the Ephmen held a four 
foot margin over Princeton. The 
Race Committee later commented 
that this was one of the closest 
finishes in one-design competition 
they had ever witnessed. 

The second race held Saturday 
afternoon was sailed over a 15- 
mile triangular course in breezes 
thnt were clocked at between 16 
and 18 mph and provided the 
toughest test of the weekend for 
the ten crews who were called i:p- 
on to maneuver 44 feet of boat and 
six sails. As in every race the pre- 
cision teamwork of the Williams 
crew comprised of Smith, Dick 
Sykes, Jim Sykes, Charlie Iliff,

The presidency of the United 
States has become the most dif- 
ficult job on earth and the most 
important to the whole free world. 
No candidate in my lifetime has 
been better prepared by previous 
experience to shoulder these en- 
ormous burdens than Richard 
Nixon. The only other candidate 
with anything like .so much experi- 
ence is Governor Rockefeller. 

For many years the two major 
parties have preferred candidates 
with executive experience to men 
whose political life had been spent 
in the Senate or House. This ap- 
proach seems to me a sound one, 
in the light of present conditions. 
Mr. Truman, a much better than 
average Senator with long political 
experience had learned something 
about the Executive branch as 
chairman of a "watch-dog" com- 
rhittee of Senators, but there is a 
world of difference between kib- 
itzing and playing the cards. Even 
the most cursory reading of the 
first volume of Mr. Truman's 
memoirs will convince you how un- 
wise it was for President Roose- 
velt, sick man that he was, to hold 
his vice-president at arm's length 
from vital information and ad- 
ministrative responsibility which 
he had been willing in part to 
share with Henry Wallace. 

No president in my lifetime has 
taken more care to initiate his 

pi talive successor than President 
Eisenhower. Mr. Nixon has been a 
regular member of the National 
Security Council and has pre- 
sided over it in the President's ab- 
sence. Those of us who have work- 
ed for the Council know at first 
hand how carefully the vice-presi- 
dent has studied everything con- 
nected with national defence. He 
lias had w-ide experience in for- 
eign affairs and shown his met- 
tle under pressure both In Latin 
America and in Russia, The qual- 
ity of the staff he has picked and 
the skill with which he has used 
them is outstanding. 

Eight years ago Mr. Truman 
bluntly remarked that Adlai Stev- 
enson had to run on the record of 
the Truman administration for 
what else was there to run on. 
President Eisenhower, with more 
fairness to his party's candidate, 
has said that Mr. Nixon was free 
to suggest new policies if he 
wished, for every party must face 
forward as well as backwards. 

Professor Burns, in his three re- 
cent brilliant articles in the At- 
lantic Monthly has pointed out 
the immense difficulties the lead- 
er of either major party will have 
in combining presidential politi- 
cal leadership with congressional 
leadership. From his experience 
in Congress and as the presiding 
officer of the upper house, from 
his knowledge of the executive 
branch, and his great political 
skill, Richard Nixon seems to me 
better qualified than any other 
American to assume the presi- 

Two years ago there was staged 
in Washington a sort of national 
town-meeting on the problems of 
foreign aid with the top brass of 
both the Senate and House in at- 
tendance. Mr. Nixon presided at 
the afternoon session when ques- 
tions from the floor rattled down 
on the speakers like hail on a 
tin roof. Many of them, dealing 
with questions of top policy, were 
leveled at speakers who, like 
Mansfield Sprague of the State 
Department, were operators in the 
foreign aid field, not policy mak- 
ers. In every such case Mr. Nixon 
intervened with the remark that 
it was not fair to put such a poli- 
cy question to a man who had not, 
like himself, sat in on the deter- 
mination of the policy. Instead he 
fielded all these hard-hit balls
