TRINITY COLLEGE BULLETIN Costello Gives Phi Beta Kappa Lecture Dr. Harry Todd Costello, internationa lly renowned philosopher and head of the philosophy department at Trin ity College, spoke on the "Liberal Arts" at the Phi Beta Kappa lecture March 8 to a capacity audience in the College Auditorium. As he concluded, the entire audience rose to give him a standing ovation. Dr. Costello will retire in June from the Brownell Chair of Philosophy which he has held since 1920. After defining an art as "any subject presented systematically from first prin· ciples," Prof. Costello gave a sketch of education in the Middle Ages when a college was a group of men, not a group of buildings. The liberal arts, consisting of the Pythagorean quadrivium and the Rom· an trivium, made up a general education. Upon completion of the curriculum the student was granted the Master of Arts degree. In those times admission to study brought with it the Bachelor's degree. One might go on to specialize in law, theology, or med icine; but the Doctor of Philosophy was presented in the first two professions before it was extended to medicine in the fourteenth century. Prof. Costello then brought his discussion to contemporary problems of liberal arts. Here his wit was especially useful in giving philosophic insight into present day abuses and criticisms of the liberaJ arts. The doctor remarked that the big trouble in a liberal education today is that most campuses are split down the middle between students in the arts and those in the sciences. It seems that too many students just don't want to know too much. A serious danger to America, Dr. Cost· ello pointed out, is that Americans don't care for a systematic and well thought-out philosophy. It is thus that the systematic

The Beta Beta Chapter of Psi Upsilon fraternity at Trinity College has established a Library Book Fund amounting to $75 per semester. Books in the field of modern literature will be chosen each term by Donald B. Engley, college librarian, with the approval of the brotherhood. A suitable bookplate for the fund is being designed with the help of Prof. John C. E. Taylor, head of the Fine Arts department, and Mr. Engley. "The first 20 or 2 5 books will be pur· chased by the library with in the month," said Mr. Engley, who commended the fraternity on its gift and emphasized a need for such non-specialized book funds.

Chaplain Bray To Enter Navy The resignation of the Reverend Allen F. Bray III '49, assistant chaplain at Trinity College, was announced in March by Presi· dent Albert C. Jacobs. Mr. Bray, who has served at Trinity since 1954, will report for active duty as a Navy Chaplain on Ju ly 1. He will enter the service with the rank of Lieutenant (junior grade). In making the announcement Dr. Jacobs stated that Mr. Bray had done "exceptionally well" in carrying out the work of the Chapel and the pastoral work with students and faculty since the resignation of former chaplain Gerald B. O'Grady. " I am very sorry to have him leave the Trinity family," said D r. Jacobs, "and we wish him all the success in his new chap· lai ncy where he will have a splendid opportunity to render outstanding service. H is work during the past year has been carried on under difficult circumstances pending the appointment of a new chaplain. Mr. Bray has not been a candidate for the Trinity Chaplaincy because I have known since last fall that be was seeki ng to enter the Chaplain Corps of the Navy. No announcement of this could be made, however, until this time when his final orders were received. A committee has been actively working on the appointment of a new chaplain and the matter will, I arr. confident, be reso lved in the near future.'' Mr. Bray, a native of Taunton, Mass., was graduated from Trinity College in 1949 and has his Bachelor of D ivinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary. He also studied for a year in the Washington School of Psychiatry in Washington, D . C., before coming to Trinity. He also served as Seminarian-in-Charge of St. John's Parish, Accokeek, Md., and became rector there in 1952. During World War II, Mr. Bray served with the U . S. Marine Corps on sea duty in the Asiatic, European and North African theatres. H e is married to the former Janet M. Powell of Meriden, Conn. They have two chi ldren, Allen G. and Jayne A.

Dr. Costello but not cogently thought-out Communist philosophy can command us . In Prof. Costello's estimation, the need today in education is to "examine the best things that have been written and thought." The ideal college and the truest liberal arts, he concluded, will result from the aid and inspiration of the thoughts and writings of the past. The elderly scholar, affectionately known at Trinity as "Butch," began his career by studying under William James, George Santayana, Josiah Royce and later under Henri Bergson in Paris . He taught a joint course at Harvard with Bertrand Russell, and later was a member of John Dewey's philosophy department at Columbia University. Of the more than 2,000 students he has taught at Trinity, 12 are now heads of philosophy departments in large universities.

Scholarship Grant For $1000 Donated The Monsanto Chemical Co., centrally located in St. Louis, Mo., and with New England branches in Boston and Springfield, has given a $1,000 grant to Trinity Co llege for scholarship purposes, it was announced recently by President Albert C. Jacobs. The funds will be used to establish two $500 scholarships for freshman students next fall, the president said. In addition, the College will contribute $200 to each scholarship from the College funds to pay the full $700 tuition. "The students selected may be assured that the scholarship will be renewed by the College for the full amount until grad· uation as long as they maintain an 'eighty' average and continue as chemistry majors," President Jacobs said. When informed of the grant, Dr. Sterling Smith, head of the Trinity chemistry department, noted that the facilities and staff at Trinity were well-equipped and qualified to handle a greater flow of chemistry students. "There is a serious shortage of chemists in our society today," the doctor said, "and those men who do qualify through their college educations for positions in the field are virtually assured of fine jobs and gratifying work. We sincerely hope that bright, able young men will apply for these Monsanto scholarships."

Mrs. Auerbach, G. Fox and Co. Give $ 100,000 As we go to press President Jacobs announces a gift of $100,000 from Mrs. Beatrice Fox Auerbach and G . Fox and Company to Trinity's Program of Progress. "We are most grateful for this splen· did gift," said Dr. Jacobs, "and the con· tinued friendship of Mrs. Auerbach and her company is most heartening." In consideration of this and many other generous gifts to the college by Mrs. Auerbach and G. Fox and Company, a professorship will be named in perpetuity at the college. Further information about the exact nature of the arrangements for the professorship will be forthcoming shortly. Mrs. Auerbach is president of the company which was founded by her grandfather, Gerson Fox. The announcement of this gift comes as the company celebrates its 109th anniversary.

John B. Byrne, Chairman of the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, presents $50,000 check to President Jacobs.

Phi Kappa Psi Gets Title Asks Support National Charter For Alumni Drive The eleventh national fraternity was added to the Trinity campus recently as Phi Kappa Psi established its first chapter in Connecticut. Kappa Psi, local fraternity, became the 60th chapter of the 104-year-old fratern ity. Formal initiation ceremonies were held at the Hartford Golf Club, where an initiation team from Brown officiated. The chapter has acquired 118 Vernon Street for its chapter house, and by work· ing through vacations and with the help of a loan from local alumni, the house has been completely refurnished. There are current ly 26 active members.

Students Give Blood The 2,000th pint of blood left the Trinity campus April 18 with the tenth annual appearance of the Bloodmobile. The Bloodmobile first came to T rinity in 1951, and since that time the students had donated 1,928 pints . Donations from over 200 students on this visit, however, brought the total over 2,000, for a better .than 200 pints-per-visit average. The Freshman Executive Committee sponsored this year's visit, and were commended by Joseph Clarke, dean of students, for a "fine job of organizing and arousing student enthusiasm."

Dando on NBC It was announced just before press time that Mr. John Dando, assistant professor of English, had signed a contract to appear on twenty five-minute coast-to-coast shows with NBC. He will be heard at 11:25 a.m. on the feature "Weekday" commencing May 5. The pro gram has in the past attracted such distinguished persons as Dr. Margaret Mead, Gilbert Highet, and Mary Ellen Chase. Mr. Dando recently celebrated his fifth anniversary program, entitled "Behind the Pages", with local radio station WTIC.

Trinity ROTC Hosts 14 for Drill Contest An enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 thrilled to the precision drill and (he resounding echo of military cadence reverberating throughout the large dri ll hall of the Connecticut State Armory on Sunday, April 15, as the Air Force ROTC Drill Teams from New England competed in their fourth annual drill meet. The University of Massachusetts' 27-man team, "The Flying Redmen", marched to their third straight victory in the armed class, while the 22-man unit ftom Dartmouth College captured the unarmed title for the second straight year. Trinity College was host for the event, but did not succeed in gaining the afternoon finals. They were eliminated by one tenth of a point in the morning matches Members of the reviewing party included Brig. Gen. John R. C. Crosthwaite, vice commandant of the AFROTC program; Councilman Roger B. Ladd Jr., Trinity '50, who welcomed the cadets and the visiting dignitaries; D r. Jacobs · and Lt. Col. Jerry H. Ayers, acting as hosts for Trinity; aqd Col. T. J. Ciccalone of the 103rd FighterInterceptor Wing, representing Brig. Gen. George R. Stanley, deputy chief of staff for air, State of Connecticut. Three hundred cadets from 13 colleges and universities, representing every state in New England, took part. Other teams competing in the afternoon finals in the armed class were the University of Vermont and the University of Connecticut, who won second and third place honors, respectively. Amherst and Williams placed second and third in the unarmed class. Also represented were Boston University, Brown U niversity, Colby College, MIT, St. Michael' s and Trinity. Cadet Col. Richard G . Abbott, commander of the Trinity College AFROTC Cadet Group, was the Commander of Troops for the review performed by the 13 schools during the afternoon performance. Col. Abbott's Adjutant was Cadet Major Donald J. Scott, also of Trinity. Judging the day-long contest was the crack USAF Drill Team of the llOOth Security Squadron, Bolling Air Force Base, Washington, D.

Melvin W. Title '18, Alumni Fund Chairman in the "Program of Progress" development campaign, asked that the following message be given to readers of the Bulletin. "The alumni in the Greater Hartford Area are responding enthusiastically to Trinity's Program of Progress. Already they have subscribed over $100,000. They are also listed automatically as contributors to the 1955-1956 Alumni Fund. "It is to those Alumni outside the Greater Hartford area who will not be seen on the Capital Campaign before this June that I address this message. There are 1,156 such alumni who gave to the Alumni Fund last year but who have not made their gifts as yet this year. The class agents, most of whom live in Hartford, have been very active on the Capital Campaign in Hartford and have not been able to write all the personal notes they wrote in past years. Be your own Class Agent. Send in your Alumni Fund contribution today. Trinity needs your continued support."

Funds Will Remodel Williams Memorial A 50,000 grant from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving was awarded to Trinity College as part of its "Program of Progress" development campaign, it was announced by President Jacobs as we go to press. According to the terms of the grant the funds will be used to remodel the Williams Memorial Hall, formerly occupied by the College Library. Receipt of the grant brought the total received to date in the local area to $465,336.00, according to Albert C. Holland, vice president in charge of development. In receiving the grant Dr. Jacobs said, "I cannot begin to express how much this generous expression of confidence in the College means to us all . We are lastingly grateful." The president went on to tell of the needs of the College, saying that since the end of World War II "Trinity College like other institutions of its kind has experienced a great growth in its student body." This fact, said Dr. Jacobs, has accounted for the rise of faculty members from a prewar 62 to the present 92, as well as an increase in the administrative staff from 5 to 15. The secretarial and clerical staff has been correspondingly affected, he said. "These increases have confronted us with the problem of finding additional office space for many more persons," Dr. Jacobs said. "Today at Trinity, faculty members are sometimes crowded two and three in one office. There are offices in baseand in the reading room library there are some partitionettes which serve as 'offices' for the overflow. The result is inefficiency in operations, lack of privacy for study and counseling, and waste of time and money." The president went on to say that with the building of the new library in 1952, the necessary space for administrative and faculty offices became available, and "a few years ago a start was made towards turn· ing this former library into office space. But the College was unable to continue the remodeling it had begun, because there was more urgent need of funds for faculty salaries and scholarships. Now the need for office space has become imperative and is truly of an emergency nature." Along with the new offices, the grant by the Foundation will also allow work on the proposed lounges for the faculty and secretarial staff in Williams Memorial to begin. At present such lounges are not available, and President Jacobs said they are "greatly needed ." A spokesman for the Foundation said the $50,000 grant was the largest given to any organization this year. He further remarked that the gift to Trinity was made possible by the $5,000,000 bequest made to the Foundation in 1953 by the late Howard H. Garmany. The spokesman, who preferred to remain unidentified, said Mr. Garmany stipulated in his bequest that the needs of Trinity College be considered. Dr. Jacobs also commented on the College's lasting gratitude for the $25,000 gift made by the Foundation to Trinity during the 1947-48 campaign. The Hartford Foundation is a permanent, non-profit community trust organized under act of the Connecticut Legislature to benefit the residents of Greater Hartford. Income from the various trusts is distributed to hospitals, educational institutions and c h a r i t a b 1 e organizations serving Greater Hartford people.

Trin Splits on Spring Trip; Georgetown., G. W. U. Victims The Trinity College baseball team returned from its southern tour without suntans and with a so-so record. The Bantams, playing all their games in windy, near-freezing weather, broke even when they split with George Washington, losing 3-2 and winning 9-8; dumped Georgetown 13-0; and lost to Navy, 11-4. The sch'eduled game with Catholic University was rained out. Coach D an Jessee was emphatic in his feeling that the two losses were caused "by mistakes," and not simply because Trinity was overpowered by a better club. H e looks for fewer mistakes in the remaining games, hence a better than .500 wonlost record. Jessee can hardly blame lack of offensive punch for the southern defeats. The team returned home with four of eight

Drabowsky and Case regu lars hitting solidly and for distance. Charley Sticka, footba ll player supreme and excellent second baseman, is currently hitting a fl at .400 to pace the Bantams. Included among his hits is one four-bagger. Ed Babington, who has shown well at third base, has supplied power from the left side of the plate, and is hitting .363. Bob Alexand er, ball hawk in left field, and Ron Kozuch, catcher-captain, are both hitting .333. Kozuch has hit for the circuit twice. In the firs t contest of the tour, which Trinity lost, 3-2, a bad case of first inning jitters can be labeled the Trinity culprit. Two errors, a hit-batsman, a single and trip le gave George Washington three runs, which proved to be one more than the Bantams could muster. They scored once in the fifth and once in the sixth , and had numerous threats going in the late innings, but the effective pitching of Ed Bickerton held the Trin men in check. G eorge Case was effective for Trinity in the role of losing pitcher. H e went all the way, giving up only live hits while walking one and striking out three. After the rocky first inning, he was in fact brilliant in spots, retiring 17 men in a row from the middle of the third inning, while his teammates played airtight ball behind him. Peeved by this loss, Trinity wreaked their vengeance on a hapless Georgetown crew, 13-0, behind the superlative pitching of Mighty Moe Drabowsky.

Mr. Malcolm-Smith's article, entitled "Old Smith said so . . . ", is reprinted here by special permission . . . "There was a man in our town who couldn't read. H e used to say that, what with one thing and another, he just never got around to learning how. And in the perverse way that psychologists call rationalization, he developed a great deal of pride in his deficiency.

"Look Applauds" President Albert C. Jacobs has been honored by L ook Magazine in its column Look Applauds. The article honoring D r. Jacobs appeared in the April 17 issue. D r. Jacobs is introduced as "a president of a small liberal arts college, who is playing a top role in producing well-rounded leaders." The article continues: "His credo: 'Education in the liberal arts always is interested in training the uncommon man ... The Communists are interested in the common man, and educate not to liberate but to indoctrinate--to level all men to the mediocrity of conformity.' "

and dinner given the club by the Buffalo alumni, parents and students. Mr. Thomas C. Brown ' 15, president of the Buffalo alumni, welcomed the largest Trinity group ever to asse!I)ble in that city. Trinity enthusiasm and emotion ran high as the Glee Club sang a program of secular numbers and college songs to th e alumni. On Palm Sunday morning the Trinity singers joined th e 50-voice Cathedral choir in antiphonal singing from opposite ends of the edifice before an audience of 1100. Bishop Scaife personally met all th e men at a splendid Sunday noon dinner served by Canon and Mrs. Haddad. In spite of a snow flurry th e party journeyed out to Niagara Falls Saturday afternoon. The more intrepid members of the club donned rubber suits to visit th e tunnels and sang under the Falls. The whole group presented a short Canadian concert at the Oakes Garden Theatre. Sunday evening th e Trinity expedition and 20 girls from Buffalo University attended a luxurious colleg iate party at the home of the Samuel Lunts in Williamsville, N . Y. A substantial number of the men returned to Hartford on the following day. Commenting on the trip, Dr. Barber, the director, said, "No greater proof of. the esteem and respect Trinity commands west of New England can be imagined than the way in which our parents, alumni, clergy, and friend s opened their hearts and homes to us. Our trip through western New York State surpassed our fondest expectation s, and we cannot sufficiently th ank all those who worked so hard for us."

Clergy Gather For Religious Embassy Here Twelve clergymen gath ered on the Trinity College campus March 15 for the sixth annual Religious Embassy, sponsored by the Trinity Christian Association. The Rev. Mr. Allen F. Bray, assistant chaplain at the College and faculty advisor of the Christian Association, reported that the theme of this year's Embassy was " Faith in Our Time." Chaplain Bray explained that the Embassy came into existence about 20 years ago, when a group of students at Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine, felt the need of relating Christianity to everyday problems of living, and of stimulating th e interest of a larger number of students along this line. "They invited some of the outstanding young ministers in th e East to come to Bowdoin for two days," he said, "where they led groups of interested students in discussions of problems raised by the students. Since Chapel offered no opportunity for the student to raise questions, it was felt that an Embassy would offer the college man a chance to discuss problems with a minister. " The venture met with success at Bowdoin and quickly spread the following year to Amherst, Williams and most of the other New England Colleges . It was introduced at Trinity in 1951, and through its success has become an annual event.

Psychologist's Research Work Illuminating Three Trinity College professors, all members of the psychology department, presented the results of their individual research at the annual meeting of the Eastern Psychology Association, held in Atlantic City, N. ]., March 23 and 24. The three were Dr. Andrew H. Souerwine and Dr. Osborne W. Lacy, assistant professors, and Mr. Robert D. Meade, instructor. The meeting brought psychology teachers and others in the field from approximately 30 eastern colleges. The two day meeting consisted of reading and discussing research papers. Dr. Souerwine wrote jointly with Miss Elizabeth Goding, of the University of North Carolina, on "Personality Characteristics of Conformers and Non-Conformers as revealed by an investigation of the self-concept." A group of Trinity students were used for this experiment, which concludes that non-conformers are persons who tend to have high opinions of themselves, and feel that others have similar opinions of them. Conformers conversely feel either that others have a low opinion of them or that they themselves are inferior. These conclusions, said Dr. Souerwine, were based on anonymous replies to questionnaires dealing with approximately 2 5 items which would tend to indicate the conformance or non-conformance of the individual. Items of particular import, he said, concerned popularity, prestige, and general culture. Although the experiment was limited to a particular age group, Dr. Souerwine said he felt the results would be applicable to the general populace. Still to be done, and listed as research of the future, is the investigation of the various types of conformers and non-conformers. Dr. Lacy conducted research on "the effective cue consistency in place learning based on compound discrimination." As complicated as this may sound, Dr. Lacy has actually used animals to prove a point which is generally believed through the exercise of normal reasoning. Three sets of rats were used for the experiment, and each was supplied with a different set of motivations (cues) to learn a particular task. The first set had the motivations of hunger and/or thirst, a consistent brightness (or environmental attributes), and a consistent place. The second group had the same conditions as the first, except the brightness was varied. The final group had the basic drives varied, but the brightness was consistent. From these three sets, Dr. Lacy learned that the first set, with the three motivations consistent and compound, was capable of mastering the task the more rapidly. When applied to humans, says Dr. Lacy, the hypothesis would be that humans will learn more rapidly when their motivations for doing so are compound and consistent. The final paper read to the group, by Mr. Meade, has implications which would, if applied, affect industry and other walks of life. Entitled "Effect of Ego and Task Orientation on the Satiation of an Activity," Mr. Meade has drawn the conclusion that when a person thinks his performance on any given repetitive talk will reflect his intellectual abi lity, he will become bored, or satiated, with his task much more rapidly than the person who is working without such a feeling. This, says Mr. Meade, could be used to explain excessive absenteeism, accidents, etc., in business and industry. Mr. Meade conducted his experiment over a two year period using two groups of subjects. Group A was assigned the task of drawing an endless number of one inch squares, with the instructions that the examiner was simply "trying out a simple experiment, the results to be used later in another unrelated experiment." The second group was assigned the same task, but told that their intellectual capacity for participating in further experiments was being tested by the project. Mr. Meade reports that the first group, called the nonthreat group (no threat to their prestige) outperformed the second by a decisive margm.

FIFTH REUNION

TENTH REUNION

1948 Secretary-Thomas Meredith, wood Street, Hartford.

As a result of the August nineteenth flood my wife, my daughter and myself made the headlines of the Naugatuck Valley newspapers by our three-hour stay in a sturdy little elm tree amidst the Pomperaug River in Southbury. Only towards the end of a good cocktail party will friends believe that among the floating debris that we pushed away from our tree was a three room house. Our vacation in "placid" Connecticut did not want for excitement this year. Sincerely, Don DICK AVITABILE reports via a Christmas card that he has taken permanent leave of the Armed Forces and is now associated with the Dow Chemical Co. SHERWOOD HOTCHKISS (belovedly known as "The Hotch") has been placed in charge of the new Phoenix Fire Post in Columbus, Ohio. ALLAN-RALPH ZENOWITZ back on his feet after a short illness, is now studying law at the Virginia law School. ARNOLD BRUNDAGE has karated the left hand of a very pretty damsel named Miss Mary Alice Gallagher of Westhampton, L. I. PORTER CLAPP has entered into the conjugal state with the former Miss Arlene Janette Wolford, of Hartford, Conn. The former Miss Jane Hanson Bird now totes the distinction of bearing the good Trinity name MRS. SCOTT M . STEARNS. JOSEPH L. HYDE, back from Paris, has set up permanent housekeeping with the former Miss Abigail Wrenn.

GENE and Lois BINDA announce the arrival of Deborah Anne (Debbie to you, says Gene)-February 25. February was a good month. STEVE BISHOP narrated Aaron Copland's "A Lincoln Portrait" with the Springfield Symphony recently. DAVE McGARVEY is engaged to Virginia M. Bunker of Bristol, Conn. DICK HUNT married Joanne Stein on March 4. TEX COULTER is attending Babson's Graduate School of Business Administration. CHET PADO is at Aberdeen Proving Grounds after having completed a course at Wharton. BERNIE BOGOSLOFKI tied the knot on the 21st of April at Tinker Air Force Base Chapel, Oklahoma City, Okla. More news, as it comes in, in the next cla;s letter.

1954 Secretary-1st Lt. Frederick H. Searles, 931st ACWRON, Thule A.B., Greenland, APO 23, New. York, New York. Greetings from the top of the world! As you' ll note, I'm stationed at the much talked about but least desired air base in the Air Force. Enough said about "Igloo Ike" and more about the '54 grads. PETE ANDERSON sifted sand from the Florida beaches through his toes for the last time also. I left him packing his bags for a remote radar site in Alaska. AL SMITH and STU HUNTER were a little more fortunate. Al is stationed at Highland, N . ]., while Stu is rubbing shoulders with Tennessee Ernie Ford in Nashville, Tenn. DAVE KENNEDY and ED PALMER finished their training and have since reported to their new bases. Dave is flying out of Madison, Wisconsin, while Ed is located in Bedford, Mass. LEW TAFT dropped me a line last month. Lew is working on his Ph.D . in chemistry at Notre Dame. He mentioned that BOB KALINOWSKI is engaged to Mary O'Brien and is attending Tufts Medical School. HERB MAC LEA is stationed at Wright-Patterson and doing graduate work through the Ohio State extension on the base. JOHN HIGINBOTHAM has pitched his Army pup tent at Fort Jackson, S. C. ART RATHBURN has just been awarded a four year Nuclear Reactor Engineering Fellowship by the University of Pittsburgh and Westinghouse. Congratulations, Art. In an entirely different field, ED JAGER has been appointed to combat the problem of lack of education among native pastors in Liberia. His work will take him into areas never touched by missionaries before. JOHN MAZZARRELA is engaged to Denise LeClair of West Hartford. Lt. PAUL KENNEDY is engaged to Jane Benton of Pittsfield, Mass. News is rather scarce this time, but I want to remind you of the 1955-56 Alumni Fund. The goal is higher, so Jet's improve our fine class record of last year. Even though your reporter has been temporarily exi led from the country, the mail still gets through. Drop me a line and let me know what you are doing.

1955 Secretary-E. Wade Close, 5604 5th Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa. A writer of editorials for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette expressed the wish he had known at 18 that he _w ould believe the op-

posite of almost everything he believed when he reached the age of 38. Already at 2 2 I can sympathize with his thinking, for many of my views of four years ago have been exposed as misconceptions. Luckily the revelations have been easily corrected. Beginning a career in the army, in industry, or in matrimony, is bound to alter some of the thoughts of our younger years. In place of football and fraternity parties, EARL ISENSEE has to concern himself with law school and . . . policemen. Instead of football and Mitch Pappas, GENE BINDA now has a total of three girls to occupy his time away from work. HAROLD BURDON has French women to worry about rather than a rough New England life. Harold is stationed 70 miles from Paris and lives in an old chateau (avec running water') . JOE REINEMAN has many headaches working for Bethlehem's strip mill in Buffalo. The problems of college life are minute when compared to the responsibility of pushing thousands of tons of steel through a mill. Apparently Joe is doing a bang-up job and has been promoted unusually fast to a position few men have held at his age. Many of the class have now almost completed their first year as part of the working mass . . I'm sure John Butler would appreciate any comments the young businessmen would like to send him. The remarks could prove to be quite helpful to the Placement Bureau if written constructively. Recently some of the members of the class have made shifts in their careers, and others have been orientated into the beginning stages with new companies. PHIL CRAIG has graduated from the Owens-Corning Fiberglas training program and is stationed in Pittsburgh as a salesman. GENE BINDA is now in his last month of training with Westinghouse and should be getting his salesman's assignment soon. JOEL JEPSON, graduating last January, was given an offer from Smith, Kline & French and is presently employed by them. LEE LAHEY has now moved for the "ump-teenth" time and is continuing his training with Westinghouse at their Sharon, Pennsylvania plant. RON KENT has stayed in Hartford and has been made a registered representative of the New York Stock Exchange by the firm Paine, Webber, Jackson & Curtis. Trinity is not like the inexperienced 18year old living under misconceptions. Our Alma Mater is not a beginner in the ideas of progress and improvement. Its plans are founded on sound thinking and experience. But to see the all-important objectives come true it needs the support of its alumni and friends and their donations of time, effort, and financia l help. I feel it is the duty of all of us to repay our school for the incorporeal benefits we all reaped. Whenever a request for money appears, all have just that opportunity to compensate. By the time this Jetter is sent, as part of the Trinity Alumni Bulletin, all of the class should have received at least two letters from DAVE ROBERTS, our Class Agent and other notes from his assistants. From the report received late in March, over half of the class have ignored the pleas. I hope the future letters will be answered promptly and be followed by a contribution, no matter if only a few dollars. The importance of each gift is like the man with only one basket in a one-point victory for the Trinity five; for even though small, it is magnanimous in its importance. It is my hope that we all get on the bandwagon our first year so we start off on the right track for the years to come. Leap year continues on its unmerciless way, and the many unsuspecting souls are dropping into the ball and chain ranks. GERRY SNYDER was married to Elaine Sanders in West Hartford on February 25. The guests were ushered by NORM CATIR and JERRY HATFIELD. Gerry and his bride are living in Houston near the Ellington Air Force Base. DICK ROYSTON was married April 7 to Joan Murray, and ushers included WADE CLOSE and JOE REINEMAN. The engagement of GERRY CROWELL to Marilyn Reynolds was announced recently. ED YEOMANS is engaged to Marguerite Mercier; they plan to be married this Spring. Ed is now stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas, with the Army. Personal opinions (not worth much) on the subject of marriage ... "That what you think you want often looks quite different when you want it and after you have it." Army life does not seem as bad as many picture it to be. A Jetter from GORDON REESE tells of his week-ends spent in Brussels and other nearby cities. His February leave took him through Switzerland and Austria, and in June he expects to see France or Italy. PHIL TRUITT, once stationed in Texas, is now in Florida- ! hope he doesn't forget what snow looks like. WARREN GELMAN is travelling around the country on a base inspection teamanother rough job. That is the Army's answer to SCOTTY PRICE'S occupation as Alpha Delta Phi travelling secretary. CHARLIE BRITTON has navy life to thank for an eight-hour day of electronics' school at his Chicago base. Almost all the ROTC graduates have had some time in the service of the blue. DAVE HOAG is now stationed at Marana AFB in Tucson, Arizona, while BRUCE WHITMAN is located at the Air Base in Bainbridge, Georgia. NAT REED is serving in Texas and FRANCOIS HYDE has been assigned to Vance AFB at Enid, Oklahoma. All are 2nd Lieutenants, as is DAVE DIMLING who has Lincoln AFB in Nebraska as an address. GEORGE KENNEDY has finished basic training, and after a short furlough is back at army life; but this time his wife is able to be with him. Incidentally, recent comments here in Pittsburgh indicate PETE WIDMER and DICK LEACH must have been "live wires" at George's wedding last July. FRANCIS SOLOMITA is engaged to Anna May Kenny, the wedding to take place May 14. BILL ROMAINE is engaged to Wilma Newberry of Chatham, New Jersey. HENRY PADO is at the Wharton Graduate School of Finance and Commerce. Something for all of us to think about"That what others think of you is not nearly so important as what you think of yourself- really think of yourself when the shades are down and the lights are out." Again thanks to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist, and from the Steel City, a good-bye until the next letter.
