A SINCE this issue is devoted primarily to the "State of College Humor," we thought that we should pass on to you a few of our own favorites in this column. One of the funniest, and unfortunately one of the truest, satires on college admissions was contained in a letter written to Tech Registrar William Carmichael a year or so ago. The letter was penned by the mother of a prospective college student. In it were all of the frustrations that parents everywhere feel when first confronted with the complicated admission process in this day and age of the multiple forms and the myriad of IBM cards. Here, just as Mr. Carmichael received it, is the body of the letter: "Surely it must be easier to get into the Kingdom of Heaven than into Georgia Tech. I feel constrained to make that extreme statement because of the trouble we have had here trying to get that pink form of yours signed by a judge of the Court of Record, etc. It is simply that we do not know a judge and it seems that the only way we could ever get to know one is to be sent up for six months. We lead such a quiet domestic life here in Queens County that we do not even know how to go about getting sent up the river. "We includes my son, Thomas Aquinas (he should need a reference?) and me, his mother, who finds getting him into college a lot harder than bringing him into the world. About this pink form: I first consulted a local P.T.A. official who in turn consulted a Guidance Counselor who in turn said he didn't know what to do about such a form. Then I gave the form to Tom and told him to cast about in his school for hints on where to unearth a judge who wouldn't mind sticking his neck out. N o one knew. So yesterday we drove to the Queens Borough Halland saw the B. P. himself. Still no dice. He said to go over to the Supreme Court in Jamaica and that we did but no one there would vouch for Thomas Aquinas on the ground, logically, that no one knew him. It was suggested by a minor officer that if Tom could only get accused of some wrongdoing and then acquitted by due process of law, the presiding judge wouldn't mind giving him the benefit of his recommendation. But we don't want to go that far. Things are complicated enough as it is.

"Well, when we got back here we stopped off at the rectory where we had previously left one of those green forms. We were lucky in finding the pastor home but he couldn't find the green form we had left. In desperation we showed him the pink form and asked for suggestions. He thought we might do it through Commissioner Murphy who knows Tom personally and thinks enough of his moral character to let him date his daughter. Excelsior! "While we press on with the pink form, will you kindly let us have another green one?" * * * A A MONTH or so later, Registrar Carmichael received another letter from the distraught mother. This one was written in a much less frustrated manner and simply stated that Thomas Aquinas had been accepted at Cornell as an engineering student and was going to attend that institution. The reason—fewer forms to fill out for admission, which has to be one of the really unique approaches to college selection. * * * A

ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHARACTERS On

the Tech campus is an eccentric but effective halfback from Miami named Joe Auer, who is a sort of an urban Ken Owen. Auer's sayings have been amusing Tech people since he arrived here as a transfer from Miami in the fall of 1960. He always refers to people who do not come from the Miami area as tourists and because of his frequent use of the word has been dubbed "tourist" by his coaches and friends. In the middle of January, just as Atlanta's cold snap was easing somewhat and the temperature had risen to a still chilly and damp 50, Auer showed up in our office to check on some pictures of his performance in the Gator Bowl. He was clad in bermuda shorts and a green tee shirt. When we recovered from the shock, we asked him why he was attired in such a manner at this time of the year. His retort was, "It's 85 in Miami today." When reminded that we were over 700 miles from Miami, Auer said, "Yeah I know, but every once in a while I like to let the tourists know how the real people are living."

JL A COLUMN on Tech humor certainly wouldn't be complete without at least one George Griffin story. The good dean long ago formed the Sackbrain Club here on the campus for those who conveniently did the wrong thing at the wrong time. From time to time he names new presidents from the ranks of those who show up at the wrong place or time for appointments, forget important conferences, get lost on their way home from work, or generally foul things up during their dayto-day existence. It is our guess that George Griffin has been president of the Sackbrains at least double the total time served by all of the other members of the club. For George has one of the faultiest memories in the history of man. It is part of his charm and those who know him love him for it. In our stay at Tech we have been directly concerned with several of his typical lapses. A few years back, George came roaring into our office at around 10:00 A.M. on the morning of April 23. "Wallace," he said, "I have to give a college day presentation at Southwest DeKalb High School, wherever that is, at 11:30 this morning, and I don't have the car. How about driving me?" "Certainly, Dean," we answered, "it takes about 30 minutes to get there, we'll leave at 11." At 11 sharp we picked up George and his recruiting material and set out for Panthersville, the site of the high school. When we arrived at the school, George grabbed his materials and started into the building. On the way he queried two or three students about the location of the college day program and received a blank stare from each of them. By this time we were getting suspicious, but George just mumbled something about "Kids nowadays don't even know what's going on in their own school" and then headed to the principal's office. The principal greeted him like a long, lost friend (which he was) and asked him what he was doing there. "What do you mean what am I doing here, I came for college day," exclaimed the Dean. "Well, you'll have a month's wait, you might as well have a seat," calmly answered the principal." And, that's George. * * * A JUST AS we went to press, work began on the third floor addition to the chemistry annex. When a construction shack appeared in front, some wag added a half moon and inscribed the phrase, "Better things for better living through chemistry."

ON the historic day of February 20, the Tech campus reacted in much the same manner as the rest of the country while Marine John Glenn orbited the earth three times and became a national hero in the course of six hours. In the faculty lounge the television set received more attention than it has since the world series. And in offices throughout the campus, television and radio became a part of the

day's scene. Those who had to attend class or teach paused between classes to gather around portable radios in the hallways, in the classrooms, or out on the campus. And for five minutes out of every hour during that flight this scene of intense concentration was repeated as tomorrow's engineers listened to the results of yesterday's and today's technological achievements.

OF A RAMBLIN' RECK^y PW W. Ajax in a spot of research for this article, I happened to check with the registrar's office and found to my amazement that I have been associated with over 22,000 Tech students during my stay on this campus. When I finally got around to trying to put this evolution idea of mine on paper (I have used the concept in speeches before but never worried about writing it out until Wallace put the pressure on me the other day for some unknown reason) I found that all of these multitude of faces suddenly fell into five distinct profiles—freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, and alumnus. This seemed a logical approach to the article, so I decided to use it. In your early freshman days, you carried the face of a green, garrulous, gullible, glib character — tormented by upperclassmen, harassed by scholastic pressures, "shafted" by all, and completely frustrated by the maze of student and fraternity activities. And yet, within 30 days you all became typical "rats," well able to grouse and gripe about the shortcomings of Tech and your extreme personal hardships to the extent that I must go back as an English professor and recall an eighth century poem called, "Deor's Lament." This poem recited the story of an old scop (or minstrel man) who was attached to a royal house for the sole purpose of providing song and entertainment for the lords and ladies. The lords and ladies got the entertainment, and the scop got a very good livelihood from his patron. The poem goes on to tell of this scop named Deor, who had lost his job to another minstrel by the name of Heorrenda; and, in a tone of brooding fatalism consoled himself for his loss of royal favor by re-calling the hardships and misfortunes suffered by heroic persons of long ago. After each brief, grim and tragic recital, Deor would end with this melancholy refrain: "$aes ofereode || hisses swa maeg" which means "That was endured: this likewise can be." You as freshmen continued to gripe and grouse, but you showed determination to stick it out in the remembrance of perhaps your father or another freshman who had completed the work years ago. Thus, you got consolation very much like Deor, and yet achieved a determination to stay at Tech like those who had done so before.

HILE ENGAGED

MARCH, 1962

As a sophomore, you came back to school as a different creature. Now you had evolved into a so-called sophisticated, overbearing person, throwing your weight around with the freshman until about two weeks later when the deadly duo of calculus and physics brought both Christianity and humility to your soul. And again, although on a different level and in a more articulate manner, you continued to gripe and grouse about things in general at Georgia Tech — the poor facilities, the poor teaching, the impossible student load, and, redundantly, the "shafting" that everyone was giving you. As I watched you, I again could see the same similarity to the lament of old Deor; and again I could see you struggling with an even stronger determination to get through the school year no matter what the odds. This determination was stoic and sound and sincere, and somehow most of you survived with the same thought of Deor, "That was endured; this likewise can be." As a junior, the profile was even more altered, and yet it showed more maturity. Some of you even thought of security, particularly those of you who were married or were contemplating this big step. As a junior, you became a so-called "man about town," one who knew his way around Georgia Tech and Atlanta, who knew what to do academically, socially, imbibingly, and I use these words advisedly. And in some of your cases, my memory must be confidential, or else you would never have been graduated from Tech. Yet again, throughout your junior year, I remember the same griping and grousing, the same charges of "shafting" by various professors and still again, I could see through all this "guff" that same determination and consolation carried in the philosophy of Deor. If you had made it through the freshman year, and if you had made it through the sophomore year, and if you had made it up to the level of a junior, you always found that you too could endure this stormy year because it had been done before. Despite this stoic atmosphere, you and I frequently shared experiences that gave both of us some relaxation. In the late thirties when I was proctor in Techwood Dormi-


EVOLUTION OF A RECK-continued tory, I remember a group of athletes who were searching rather desperately for a "comfortable" course to take, one that might alleviate the burden of a rigorous schedule. About this same time Dr. William G. Perry, Head of the English Department, called me in and stated that he would like to offer an elective course in Shakespeare. He asked me if I could help him get up a class for this course. I told him that if he would practically guarantee that the course would not be too hard, I was sure I could get a class arranged, but I asked and received permission for my athletic "friends" to be allowed to take the course. Doctor Perry, at first was wary, but finally gave me permission. The boys and I held a caucus the next night. They also were wary, but I sold them on the course and gave them my solemn promise that no one would flunk. Thus, the course was formed with twelve out of twenty students being my "friends." After the quarter was underway for about two weeks, I called in the leader of the group, a very eccentric and well-known halfback, to find out how the course was going. He assured me that everything was going along fine, that all of the boys were enjoying the course, but that they had one objection . . . Doctor Perry was taking all the good parts as they read the plays together and would never let them have a leading part. In fact, my halfback friend, at the time, was playing Ophelia in Hamlet. I took action, and Doctor Perry made the necessary concessions. Thus, both he and the boys had a great time together and what is more important, everybody made a "C" or better. And then I remember you as a senior. As a senior you were a very busy man, a very serious man, because you were getting close to the end. The majority of you were "shook up" — trying to graduate, trying to get married, trying to have children, and trying to get a job. Again, I am reminded of an unusual experience — As most of you know, when the poor graduating senior is having trouble with one course in the final examinations, I have always offered to do what I could to help him with the professor concerned. However, about a year ago one incident almost exhausted my patience. An electrical engineering senior came into my office at a time when I was having a conversation with Father Giles A. Webster, the Chaplain of the campus Newman Club. It seems that the senior was very scared of failing a required senior course in electrical engineering, and he was taking me up on my promise to help. Quickly, I told him to go home and study, go to bed early, and if he did "flunk" the course be sure that he flunked it "honestly" and then come back to me. Father Webster entered into the conversation, reassured, the senior that my advice was good, but also stated that he would say a few prayers for a successful accomplishment of the examination. Thus, the professor had very little chance against the boy with the Lord, Ajax, and Father Webster working for him. I heard nothing from the boy during the examination week, and thus I assumed

that all was well. However, on registration day of the next term I chanced to meet the senior around the post office and expressed my amazement over his registering for another term. I asked for an explanation and was told that he passed the electrical engineering exam but that someone in mechanical engineering "sneaked up" and "stabbed" him in the back. Needless to say, without my aid or that of Father Webster and the Lord, the senior did finally finish his work the next quarter. Most of you were really "sweating" it out, and at this time the old Deor philosophy was leaned on very heavily, but this time you showed a vicious determination to overcome all of your hardships and finally to be graduated. And thus, it came to pass. Now, you took on the alumnus profile. Here I find the great metamorphosis — the inexplicable, it seems to me, change between the student and the alumnus. Suddenly, you seem to forget all the melancholy days of Deor and your troubles. Because it is now experience, and you look upon the four years at Tech as a study in memory. Even two years after you have graduated and are working in business or industry, you discover in an amazing way that all the hardships, the sufferings, and the "shaftings" experienced by you at Tech made your job easier, and you realize that the training at Georgia Tech was sound and, in fact, made your job a lot more manageable than those rigors of education at Georgia Tech. Practically overnight, to reminisce of your days at Tech gives you a warm glow, a good feeling, a general love and a fierce pride in Georgia Tech, a pride unexcelled by alumni of any other school. You, as an alumnus greatly enjoy the industrial prestige of Georgia Tech; and what is most important and unique, after all the lamentations, melancholy meditations, and ferocious griping as a student here, you became the most enthusiastic and loyal of alumni. You express your loyalty in three main ways and you express it well: The first is the continued record-breaking contributions you make to the annual Roll Call. The second is the first-rate public relations and sales promotion job you are doing all over the world for Georgia Tech, and the third is your ever-readiness to help all Georgia Tech men everywhere. There have been events over the years in my experience at Georgia Tech where the very Institute seemed threatened. All of us concerned, teachers and administrators alike, have had our headaches, hardships, and fears, until we also became followers of Deor. I refer to such things as the depression, the troubles caused by World War II, and other happenings that upset the normal operation. We thought of Job frequently, turned to God for guidance, but the best consolation and reassurance in our troubles (and this is particularly true in my case, personally) came from a sincere belief that if Georgia Tech needed help, everyone of you to a man is ready and willing to come to our immediate support. With alumni like you, Georgia Tech will always be eternal. TECH ALUMNUS


A Special Report

THE STATE OF COLLEGE HUMOR 1962

to profile the American college student in alumni magazines (in fact in all magazines) seem to ignore completely the fact that college students still possess an active sense of humor. Consequently, today's student is generally pictured as a dry, intense, colorless character with the cool, detached sense of humor generally associated with beards, black turtle-neck sweaters, and coffee houses. Actually, if Tech students are representative, today's student still has the loud, finger-pointing, satirical concept of humor that his father boasts about at alumni reunions and football parties. Perbaps students don't put cows on top of buildings anymore or steal the whistle from the power plant like their predecessors did, but they still get back at their tormentors through satirical farce in the pages of their publications. At Tech, the chief vehicle for student humor is the Rambler, successor to the Yellow Jacket which was shot down by the faculty for the crime of overindulgence in 1955. The Rambler, a combination feature-humor magazine with none of the short jokes that were once the pride of the Yellow Jacket, is skillfully edited and immensely popular with the student body. Last year it was awarded first place nationally for the best college feature magazine by Pi Delta Epsilon, the honorary journalism fraternity. Its success has forced the Technique and even the Engineer to use more and more humor to keep the readers' interest. The Rambler's targets remain pretty much the same as the Yellow Jacket's, with only the changes in times bringing in new subjects. The math and chemistry profs, the physical plant department, and the deans are still blasted from time to time. The parking problem, the campus policemen, and the coeds are the newest items for satire in words and cartoons. Takeoffs on the old songs or poems such as this one by Frank Clamon are still the rage:

THERE HAS TO BE AN EASIER WAY »

I

in early autumn as Skeezely Mc/Mac crawled out of his earthen home near the airport and prepared to make his long journey to the Georgia Tech campus. Skeezely, one of those patriotic individuals who feels it is his duty to commute because each gallon of gasoline he buys increases the amount of money in circulation and keeps the national economy from becoming stagnant, carefully adjusted the straps on his Salisport driving gloves, locked in place his Bell crash helmet with heavy-duty bubble face protector, and stomped on the kick-starter of his Sears Mo-ped Motorbike. As the motor sprung to life with a noise somewhat akin to that of a thousand dying boxelder bugs and silverfish, Skeezely looked with bloodshot eyes toward the long road which lay ahead —• across unchartered expressways and numerous trolley tracks—and yet he did not flinch—for he knew what had to be done and he was ready to get right in there and do it. Amid cries of "kill the Yankee Pig" and "54-40 or Fight" he set out towards Tech. For days and days he rode — sometimes without food — sometimes without water — but always with his back to the airport beacon. Finally—16 months later — dog tired and without any personal possessions but an athletic ID card which he clutched between his teeth, he slowly pedaled up to the campus. Carefully parking his trusty mo-ped, he hobbled into his 11:00 Saturday class, which he found had been called off. With this burden lifted from his shoulders, it was a happy fellow who walked back to where he had parked. But his joy was shortlived; for here he found a ticket for 25c for parking at a 30° angle from a fireplug 42'-6" distant. The shock was too much for him and something snapped. As the sun slowly sank in the west, Skeezely Mc/Mac, animal lover, Rotarian, and good guy, climbed into his Bell crash helmet with heavy bubble face protector, pulled his Sears Mo-ped in after him; started it up with a noise akin to a thousand Atlas Missiles and carbon-monoxided-<*iimself to death. On this same morning — indeed a day of infamy — Mrs. J. Harvey Freedlick, III — only gray-haired little old lady ever to attend classes at Tech — climbed out of her Victorian fourposter, slipped into her special "Little Old Gray-Haired Lady Visits the Bobbsy Twins" uniform, read one chapter of "Tom Swift and his Amazing Mechanical Thimble" and, thus prepared, started for the Hill. Living among the squirrels in Piedmont Park (because she simply couldn't study in the dorms) she found it necessary to 12

T WAS A COLD DREARY MORNING

drive to school each morning so she wouldn't be too tired for her 8:00 P.T. class. This morning was much like any other morning — as the rising sun found her in her 1927 tulipwood bodied Hispanio-Suiza on the 14th St. ramp of the expressway (because she liked crowds) swinging into the traffic with a right turn signal and accelerating up to 8 m.p.h., she merrily buzzed along the center median towards Tech. Reaching the 10th Street exit she drove across the expressway perpendicular to traffic flow (much to the consternation of those motorists on whose hoods she drove — especially the gentleman in the Isetta on whose roof she speed-shifted into 2nd) and on over to the Hill, arriving just in time to drive through a squad of Pershing Rifles out on early morning drill. Muttering something about the tragedy of American youth and how they are too militaristic, our heroine drove down the middle of the Faculty tennis courts where she always parked, raced the engine four times and turned off the motor. Just as she was about to vault out of the car, she heard sirens approaching. Not wanting to be in the way in case they drove down through the courts she remained in her car — the picture of good citizenry. All at once she found herself in the midst of a milling throng of campus police and before you could say "Jack Robinson" (which takes % of one second) in her hand was a ticket — not to the Policeman's Ball as you might expect — but for improperly displaying her campus parking sticker and leaving the previous year's sticker on the window. Awestruck, mortified beyond all reconciliation, all her hopes and dreams shattered, she drove over to the nearest grocery store, bought a 6-pak of Metrecal, and went out and got thin. These are just two examples of the hardships and miseries brought about by the unfair distribution of parking tickets by the power-hungry, status-ridden bureaucratic campus polezi. Arise students! Raise funds to send a lobby to Washington to encourage your congressmen to back you up. Teach these junior G-men to respect little old gray-haired ladies; show them it's un-American to give parking tickets to fun-loving, straight-arrow, patriotic American youth. Take it on your own shoulders to rid our campus of this social enigma. For information on how to do this send ten cents in coin (no stamps) to Mary Peeks, c/o Alumnus; she will send, by return mail, her popular book (in plain paper wrapping) entitled "Necking and Petting—There Must be Something Better."

What a nice policeman. He is a campus cop. He gives tickets to wrongdoers. Color the long sleek limousine black. Color the angry wrongdoing alumnus red. Color the parking ticket green. Draw a small picture of President Harrison, finding out about the ticket. He will be green too. Tell the nice policeman bye bye.


What a smiling dean. He wishes you well. Color his smile phony. Color his palm greasy. Do not get out of the lines. He will break your crayolas. Cut out his picture. Paste it on an ash tray. Put cigarettes out on his ear lobe.


There is a handsome football player. He is on the left. There is a cheerleader. She is on the rest of the page. Color her quickly. Now burn the page.

NAVY AND TECH PLAYERS ACTING LIKE THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A CONTACT LENS. THEY'RE CHASING A BALL.

IT WAS JUST ONE OF THOSE YEARS E URING A YEAR dedicated to rebuilding, Tech's basket-

ball team came up with its worst record since the 1953-54 season. The loss of top forward Keith Weekly, first to an injury and then to academic problems, proved to be the final blow to Coach Whack Hyder's hopes of a good season. Without a proven pointmaker, Mike Tomasovich and Josh Powell had to shoulder the scoring load for the Jackets on their way to a 10 win—16 loss season. In the Southeastern Conference race, Tech finished well down in the pack with a 4-9 record. Tech lost its first two on the road, 55-57 to SMU in Dallas, and 80-84 to Rice in Houston, before coming back home for a 72-56 over William and Mary. On December 9, the Georgia Bulldogs scored their first win over Tech in 10 games by edging the Jackets 67-70 at the Coliseum. Tech then wound up its pre-holiday season with a 57-44 win from Baylor and a 58-57 thriller from Missouri, both at the Coliseum. In the Poinsetta Tournament, the Jackets reached the finals by upsetting Furman, 72-65, only to be soundly beaten by Arkansas, 42-72, in the title match. In the final SEC warmup with Navy in Atlanta, Tech lost an overtime battle to the Middies, 62-64. The Jackets opened the SEC campaign with a 70-89 loss to Kentucky in Lexington and then avenged the Georgia loss in a noncounter in Atlanta, 68-62. The Mississippi teams then came into the Coliseum to take a pair from Tech. Old Miss was the winner in a 55-60 battle that wasn't decided until the last 40 seconds and eventual SEC champ Mississippi State came from behind in the final second to take a thriller, 56-57. Tech finally broke on the winning side of the Conference ledger by beating Vanderbilt at home, 71-65 and then lost another non-counter to Auburn, 40-52. The Jackets edged Tennessee, 66-65, at Knoxville in overtime to gain their only road SEC victory of the season, MARCH, 1962

and then came back to Atlanta to give Kentucky a real battle before falling, 62-71. Tech ran its losing streak to four in a row by falling to Alabama, 70-76, in Tuscaloosa; to Auburn, 39-48, in Auburn, and to LSU, 51-52, in Atlanta before edging Tulane, 77-74, in overtime at home. In a non-conference game, Louisville fell to the Jackets' best effort of the season, 59-50, and Tennessee visited the Coliseum and received a 67-50 whipping in Tech's final SEC victory. The Jackets then went on the road to lose to Georgia, 61-68, Florida, 75-82 (in overtime), and Vanderbilt, 74-88. Tech's high scorer for the season was Mike Tomasvich with a 13.1 average followed by Josh Powell and Alan Nass with 10 plus averages. Actually, taking all things into account this might have been one of Hyder's superior coaching jobs since he took over the Jackets in 1951. Losing Kaiser by graduation and then Weekly to the aforementioned ailments was too much for anyone to overcome. Yet, Coach Hyder kept his team in almost every game until the final minutes. Coach Joe Helms' freshman squad was the best looking one to appear at the Coliseum in a long time, winning all but one game at home (it lost to the nation's number one junior college team—Young Harris) and closing out the season witth a 12-5 slate. Next year, it will furnish Hyder with several strong candidates for the varsity, namely, Ron Scharf, R. D. Craddock, Jim Caldwell, and Tommy Roberts. Back from this year's varsity will be Tomasovich, Nass, Eidson, Herbert, Landrey, Tumlin, and Nigg. And, Weekly and Spooner are expected to beat the books and be eligible for the coming season. This squad could be one of the strongest Tech has had in a long time and might just put Tech back as a title contender after an absence of one rather long but expected year. 21


1962 GOLF SCHEDULE

GEORGIA TECH'S 1962 football schedule was

approved by the Academic Senate after its February 6 meeting. The action by the Senate endorsed the Executive Committee's recommendation that the schedule be approved with reluctance and then only because of a prior contractual agreement with Alabama. Two weeks before the meeting it was announced by Athletic Director Dodd that the Alabama series will be terminated when the current contract expires with the 1964 Tech-Alabama game. Dodd stated that the move to drop Alabama had been decided upon prior to the 1961 game. Here is the 1962 Tech schedule:
