Trinity's first "bachelor alumnae" chat here with a member of the class of 1948. Left to right they are: Mrs. John Gallo , Miss Judith Odium, President Lockwood, Miss Judith Dworin and Miss Roberta Russell. Caps and Gowns were optional and girls apparently split over decision as did most of their classmates.

Mr. Trinity

-Mason Retires As Alumni Secretary; ' To Assist. President in Alumni Affairs John A. Mason, the man who knows more Trinity College alumni than anyone else, will step down from his post as alumni secretary in September. Mr. Mason is "Mr. Trinity" to a great number of Trinity's 9,000 living alumni and he knows most of them by their first name . A graduate of the class of 1934, Mr. Mason has served Trinity in a number of administrative capacities since 1946. For the past decade, as alumni secretary, he has beeP the man that has kept tabs on individual alumni through mountains of correspondence, has overseen the reunion activities of over 68 active classes, has been the "answer man" for the national alumni association and some 27 area alumni associations. A loyal fan of Trinity teams for years, he was recently made an honorary coach by the athletic department and presented with a jacket, hat and whistle. He was one of the prime supporters of the revival of crew at Trinity in the early '60s and is secretary of the Friends of Trinity P.owing. In 1964, the Friends established the Mason-Downs Cup, presented to the winner of the varsity race on Connecticut Regatta Day, to honor Mr. Mason and Dr. Norton Downs for their interest and enthusiasm in Trinity rowing. He was honored at the June meeting of the Trinity Club of Hartford and has missed few of the monthly Tuesday luncheons of that group since returning ·to Hartford. As this issue goes to press, John Mason is recuperating from a mild coronary in Hartford Hospital. It is expected that he will be at home after July 1.

A native of Milton, Mass., he attended St. Mark's School, Southboro, before coming to Trinity. During his undergraduate days, he majored in the Classics, was active in the Political Science Club, was a fierce competitor on the squash court and was a member of St. Anthony Hall. After graduation he attended Harvard Law School, spent a decade working in a travel agency and later in a war production plant before joining · the

Trinity administration. He was a member of the Board of Fellows from 1938 to 1945. He has served his College in public relations, publications, development and as an assistant to the president before taking over the alumni office. For several years, he was editor of the ALUMNI MAGAZINE. (see MASON, page 3)

During these unusual times, it was not surprising that the 1970 Trinity Co!llmencement was interrupted at several points. What might have been surprising to some was that all of the interruptions, without exception, were such traditional American gestures as applause and laughter. The Commencement speaker, Dr. John M. Blum, Farnam professor of history at Yale was stopped several times by applause from the some 309 graduates of the class of 1970, 93 gi'aduate students receiving masters degrees and some 2500 spectators. Dr. Blum was afforded a standing ovation at the end of his address as was Kenneth Mills, an assistant professor of philosophy at Yale, who spoke at the invitation of the senior class. (Extracts of what the two speakers said which brought the commencement audience to its feet with applause are found on page 7). There was also spontaneous applause wJ-.ich int-erruptec the procession of undergraduates receJVIng bachelor's degrees when college marshal, Professor John A. Dando, read the name of Judith Dworin. The pretty 5'2" coed from West Hartford dressed in a brown mini (caps and gowns were optional) exchanged smiles with President Lockwood as he handed her a bachelor's degree, the very first awarded to a coed at the College. There was also applause for the other three coeds who a short time later received their degrees: Miss Judith Odium of West Hartford; Mrs. John Gallo of Hartford; and Miss Roberta Russell of West Hartford.

were called back to the platform to receive a masters degree . Only three other students at Trinity have received two degrees atthe same commencement. Four other students, who received bachelor of science degrees were only a week away from receiving a second degree, this one a master of engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute , Troy, N.Y. The four, the first to complete a special cooperative five-year program between RPI and Trinity leading to the two degrees, were: Boris P. Bushueff Jr., Wellesley , Mass .; Walter A. Clearwaters, Quaker Hill, Conn.: Alexander S. Duncan, Mentor, Ohio and Anthony H. Furman , Plainfield, N.J. Trinity's 144th Commencement slipped into history, unusual in that there were two major speakers and unique in that coeds received bachelor's degrees for the first time. Also about one-third of the class of 1970 had crossed the platform without cap and gown thereby indicating their decision to give the rental fee to a special fund. (see COMMENCEMENT, page 3)

Smith Named Vice President

Miss Odium is the fifth member of her family to earn a Trinity degree. The others include three brothers: Dr. George H. Odium, '61; Dr. Brian H. Odium, '63 and Jerome Odium, '68 and a sister Mrs. Brenda Dailey who received an M.A. in 1966.

There was a hearty ch•.1ckle when Professor Dando noted that Mr. and Mrs. Gallo were the first husband and wife in an undergraduate class and that "Trinity had gone all the way in coeducation ." There was also laughter when one of the graduates, who was a member of the crew that went to Henley last year, was greeted with a fog horn when he received his degree. Of course, there was special applause for the honorary degree recipients and for the class valedictorian, Winston G. Davids of New York and the salutatorian, Steven K. Dowinsky of New Jersey who, along with Lawrence J . Fox of West Hartford and Paul H. Serafino of Southington, Conn., received their · degrees with honors · in general scholarship. All four had been elected to Phi Beta Kappa and finished their four-year college career with a I 0.5 average with 10 being A- ()nd 11 an A. After all the members of the class of 1970 had received .degrees, two members, Francis A. Miniter of New Britain and Richard R. Wyland of Rochester, N.Y.,

Thomas A. Smith '44, a member of the administration since 1953, has been named vice president of the College. Mr. Smith has served as an admissions officer. registrar, associate dean and, for the past year, as director of external affairs. Mr. Smith, who received an M.A. from Columbia in 1952, is vice president of the Connecticut Conference of Independent Colleges and is a representative to the State of Connecticut Commission for Higher Education, Subcommittee on Coordination of Planning. He is also a trustee of The Connecticut Educational Television Corporation. He is a past member of the West Hartford Board of Education. As vice president of the College. his areas of responsibility will include alumni affairs, community life, admissions and financial aid.

Student Peace Effort Will Renew in Fall The efforts of over half of Trinity's students to devote much of their energies to protesting the escalation of the war in Southeast Asia continued during most of May. A noticeable slack period occurred during final examination period despite a faculty vote to make finals optional. Most students apparently "opted" to take one or more of their finals. By exam time over 30,000 signatures had been obtained by students from people in the community protesting the escalation. The bulk of the signatures were sent to Connecticut Senator Thomas A. Dodd, who announced in early June that despite "thousands and tho_usands of letters and petitions," he would continue to support President Nixon's policy . Also during the period, -numerous seminars were conducted on the campus concerning the war, foreign policy and related topics, and many student , speakers were sent out into the , c.omqmnity _to explain the '~student soiidanty" movement ~ ' . One group of two students arid a faculty member held a "teach-in" at the Connecticut Bank and Trust Co. at the invitation of bank officials. The bank reported later in an employee publication "action through reason and control by

moderates rather than radicals were the major points expressed ... the session turned out to be timely, stimulating and informative." While violence and disruptive acts · occurred on some campuses,.Jhere was no violence, or even threats of violence, on the Trinity campus. The HARTFORD TIMES commented editorially on the Trinity effort to get signatures and go out and tell their story in the community. "If the Trinity example spreads, there may indeed be a better opportunity to communicate with youth right now than there has been in a long time ... In a sense, these responsible college students are assuming that the adult society can measure up to their expectations. And that's a challenge for us too." Late in the month a new thrust began to develop, altering the emphasis from one of peaceful protest ·to political activity aimed at supporting "peace" candidates in the November elections. Many students lef-t the campus after exams, intending to work for candidates in their home states. By mid-June, with commencement over and the summer term still a week away, the campus basked quietly in the sunlight.

Fuller to Head Oberlin OBERLIN, Ohio - Dr. ____ ..,__.-n!cl:J . ert W. Fuller, dean of tl;!e faculty at Trinity ,College, was appointed the 1Oth president of Oberlin College today by the Oberlin Board of Trustees. Dr. Fuller, whose appointment is effective September 1, succeeds Dr. Robert K. Carr, who is stepping down June 30 as chief executive officer after serving the 137-year-old liberal arts college since 1960. Dr. Fuller, who is expected to leave Trinity June 30, is the second in recent years to leave the dean of the faculty post at Trinity for a college presidency. Dr. Robert M. Vogel left Trinity to become , : . . presi~ent of Bradford Junior College, . Bradford, Mass., in 1967. Dr. Harold Dorwart, chairman of the mathematics department, was acting dean during 1967 to June 1968, when he retired and Dean Fuller was appointed . Oberlin, founded in 1833, was the first coeduca tiona! institution in the world to award equal degrees to men and women. The college has an enrollment of 2500 undergraduates including 2000 in the arts and sciences and some 500 enrolled in the conservatory of music. Four committ.ees participated in the presidential search at Oberlin (trustees, faculty, students, alumni) and each named Dr. Fuller as its choice. The final unanimous recommendation was . submitted _to . the full Board of Trustees, · by the ·six~member · ·trustee presidential search committee. In its recommendation the committee cited Dr. Fuller's record as an imaginative and dedicated educator, his special interest in undergraduate education and in the potential for American .society of the liberal arts college, and his concern for relating education to both national and international realities. In two years at Trinity, Dr. Fuller has been involved in a series of innovations. These include coeducation, new interdisciplinary majors, semester-long off-campus projects for any student, special recruitment of Black students, student-planned courses of study, and student-taught courses. He also took an

active part in effecting a cooperative program with Hartt College of Music of the University of l:lartford. '

Born in Summit, N.J., in 1936, Dr. Fuller entered Oberlin College in 1952 . when he was 15 on a Ford Foundation Early Entrance Scholarship. He transferred three years later to advanced study at Princeton University, where he earned the M.A. degree in 1959 and the Ph.D. in physics in 1961. After receiving his Ph.D. in physics from Princeton in 1961, Dr. Fuller began his teaching career at Columbia University, where he conducted graduate courses in physics and, at Barnard College, taught an introductory course in physics for science majors. During 1966-67 he was a Fellow at the Center for Advance Studies at Wesleyan University . During 196 7-68 he was a Fell ow at the Battelle Seattle Research Center, Seattle, Washington, and during this period conducted an experimental science course for inner-city youth. He has served Battelle as a consultant on inner-city education and international education with specific assignments in Europe, South America and the Far East. He is a consuitant to the Commission on Science Education, American Association for the Advancement of Science, and to the National Humanities Faculty, National Endowment for the Humanities.

Nine Commissioned As AFROTC Role Appears In Doubt Nine Trinity College seniors were commissioned second lieutenants in the United States Air Force, and another student was commissioned an officer in the United States Marines in ceremonies held at the College Memorial Day. The nine commissioned in the Air Force had earned their gold bars through the two-year AFROTC program on campus. They just may have been one of the last classes to be commissioned at the college, as the AFROTC program may be phased out in a year or two, either because of dwindling enrollments or as a result of a faculty vote in May (53-47) requesting that academic credit for participation in the program be withdrawn after June 1971. That vote was based primarily on moral issues . The target date was to allow four currently enrolled students (rising seniors) to complete the program. At their pre-commencement meeting the Trustees took no action on the faculty resolution, but expressed concern for four sophomores who had signed up for the program and were expected to take Air Force training this summer, the prerequisites to the course work. The Trustees are expected to consult with Air Force officials concerning the future of the program at Trinity . At the commissioning this year, Air Force Captain Lawrence D. Flynn, an associate professor of Aerospace Studies, administered the oath to the new Air Force officers while Marine Captain Clifford G. Biasi gave the oath to Joseph J . Pantalone of New Canaan, Conn., who became a second lieutenant in the Marines. 2nd Lt. Pantalone earned his commission through a special program conducted off-campus with the Marines. The ten commissions were presented by Trinity President Theodore D. Lockwood and the charge to the new officers was made by Major Richard I. Brubaker, professor of aerospace studies at the College . The response to the charge was made by 2nd Lt. John Edmund Flaherty of East Orange, N.J. Commissioned second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force were: RichardS. Belas of Newington, Conn; Alan S. Farnell of

East Hampton, Conn .; John E. Flaherty of East Orange, N.J.; Pierre Dupont Hayward of. Montchanin, Del.; James M. McClaugherty of Alexandria, Va.; Michael J. Ohliger of Windsor, Conn. ; Howard W. Pearson of Waterbury, Conn.; Michael G. Porlides of Jericho, N.Y.; and David H. Shipman of Wallingford, Pa.

In presenting the honorary degree to Dr. Lockwood, Wesleyan Acting President Robert A. Rosenbaum noted, "You have quickly demonstrated your rare qualities as an educational leader. As befits an historian, you have a searching eye for the essence underneath the obvious; as befits a scholar, you have a listening ear for the subtle as well as the strident; as befits a humanist, you have a dedication to the full flowering of the individual human being. "With the ancient affection in which we hold your College and with our high regard for you, it gives me great pleasure to confer upon you Wesleyan University's honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters."

.Be Revolutionary Seniors Are Told At Baccalaureate An Episcopal bishop told the graduating class at the College to be revolutionary. "This day ... this minute, be revolutionary in your thinking ... in your being .. .in your living," said The Right Rev. Cedric E. Mills, Bishop of the (Episcopal) Missionary Diocese of the Virgin Islands, in delivering the 144th Baccalaureate Sermon: The word "revohJ.tion" makes people tense, but by simplht definition he said "revolution is tu{ning around or rotating." He told the seniors, "Your generation has a tremendous opportunity of adventure. Because our society needs turning around." "Be revolutionary even as the Christ not as a conformer but as· a transformer. Transforming leads to being revolutionary. Conforming leads to the fire of the status quo where we consume ourselves," Bishop Mills said. He said, "To be revolutionary is to challenge militantly and actively those oppressive evils of our society with peaceful, non-violent resistance." He warned his audience that "violence begets violence .. .active non-violence is a forceful pressure for change .. .it has the power of transformation." And he said, "As a Christian Minister I emphasize to you - God in society as your pivotal point." He charged the some 300 seniors, "Accept the challenge for change emphasized by the translation of these words in (The Book of) Revelation as, 'Now, I am making the whole of creation new."' The challenge of today, he said, is "to rethink our values, this is our responsibility." He told the seniors to use their art of protest "as part of your being to counteract our growing problem of drug addiction." And he said, "Accept the challenge to transform this civilization into a society which places an eternal value on honesty, courage and trust. If these are values, then we admit that in this world the great issue is racism. Let us face this destructive disease of our country." And he challenged those about to be graduated, "You have the opportunity to share your skills with others. There are literally thousands of boys and girls who need to learn to read and to write . Your advanced education must give you tools and the power to help them." He said, "Added to educational power must be economic opportunity. There are thousands who need the basic skills to become part of the highly mechanized and industrial society." And he added, "You are about to leave this campus, you can exert great power on society. This is your decision to build and not to destroy, to strengthen and not to weaken."

TRINITY AND THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH The report that the College had withdrawn its membership in the Association of Episcopal Colleges was somewhat misinterpreted by the editors of THE ANGLICAN DIGEST who inC1uded the following note · in the Winter ~969 issue: "Trinity College, Hartford (Diocese of Connecticut), has completely severed its ties with the Church and will no longer be listed as an Episcopal college. (It was chartered as Washington College in 1823, opened in 1824, and renamed Trinity in 1845.)" A number of readers of the publication , including alumni were puzzled and, by way of clarification, the editors included · in their Spring 1970 issue the following statement from President Lockwood: '·'Trinity College continues unchanged its founding status as an independent college with no requirement as to religious belief or association for admission to any office or privilege in the college, bu.t with abiding gratitude to members of the Episcopal Church who created and nurtured it and gave its control to an independent Board of Trustees. The college maintains unchanged its traditional relations with the ·Episcopal Church as expressed both in its historic associations with the Church and in its consecrated chapel and its chaplaincy ."

Medusa Back

In New Role

(from page 1)

An undergraduate organization founded in 1892, and disbanded in 1968, has been reactivated by seven members of the Class of 1970. Medusa, for 76 years the self-perpetuating senior honorary society at Trinity but absent from the campus scene for the past two years, has been re-formed to serve its original purpose of upholding traditions of the College. At some unrecorded point in Medusa's history, it became a legislative body and assumed judicial powers. It was this role which, in a judicial conflict following the April 1968 sit-in, caused the members of Medusa to resign. It has been inactive since . Last month, seyen seniors on their own initiative, and encouraged by former members, reorganized Medusa and issued a statement of purpose which said, in part: "The present Medusa will claim no judicial power. It will, in a broad sense, deal with vanishing traditions at Trinity as it qid in the past, but it will be concerned primarily with the quality of campus life. This includes everything from alumni functions to campus inprovements ... " The seniors included: John C. Chapin Jr.; Robert W. Duncan Jr.; Alan W. Gibby; Ryan A. Kuhn ; Jeremiah Milbank III; Peter T. Wiles; and Richard R. Wyland. They, in turn, tapped the following members of the Class of 1971: Jeffrey R. Clark; Christopher :t. Evans; G. Keith Funston Jr.; Louis P. Lawrence; Alan L. Marchisotto; and Richard B. Thomson Jr.

He has served three Trinity presidents and was the man who introduced the last two, Albert C. Jacobs and Theodore D. Lockwood, to alumni associations across the country. Mr. Mason will step down following class reunions at the end of September, a change from the traditional June reunions. He and Mrs. Mason plan to travel abroad and to spend more time at their Cape Cod summer home, "Mark Time," in West Chatham, where he will pursue his hobbies of sailing, "puttering around the house," gardening, and, on the tennis courts, playing "old man's doubles."

The a'Iumni's "Mr. Trinity" will return to the campus in January as President Lockwood's assistant for alumni affairs. In addition to his long service to his alma mater, Mr. Mason has been active in church and civic organizations. He is a trustee and vice president of the Brantwood Camp in Peterboro, N.H., run by St. Mark's School for underprivileged boys. He is a former trustee and past president of the Watkinson School, Hartford, a former vestryman of Trinity Church, Hartford and a former trustee of St. Anthony's Educational Foundation, New York.

Trinity Goes to Italy; Campus Set in Rome Over 100 students from 23 institutions have enrolled in an undergraduate program in Rome being offered by Trinity College for six weeks this summer. A Trinity/Rome campus is established at a picturesque school located on top of one of the seven original hills of the famous capital. On the residential Roman campus will .be offered a variety of courses by a faculty drawn from institutions around the United States. A significant departure from the usual programs of summer studies offered by Trinity, the Rome program was conceived to offer college and university students the opportunity to broaden their cultural horizons and to learn through immediate exposure to a foreign environment. The Trinity College/Rome campus is under the direction of Dr. Michael R. Campo, director of the Cesare Barbieri Center of Italian Studies and acting co-chairman and professor of modern languages at Trinity. The overseas summer campus, which is situated on Aventine Hill overlooking the Tiber, is close to most of the famous monuments of antiquity and convenient to transit facilities. The living quarters are in pleasant villas and dormitory style dwellings. Classrooms and studios are well equipped and dining areas are gracious and open on to courtyards and gardens. Courses will be offered in anthropology, archaeology, classical literature and civilization, comparative liter at u r e, fine arts, history, Italian language and literature, music, religion, sociology and studio arts. Courses will be taught in English, except those in Italian language and literature. A student can earn six transferable academic credits and, under certain circumstances, may earn as many as nine credits during the six weeks.

In addition to lectures, the courses will offer students an opportunity to participate in a dig at Tarquinia, study Rome's architecture first hand, gain studio arts experience in the historic city, hear Italian opera and visit catacombs, monasteries, shrines and Vatican excavations. Students and faculty will dine together and associate informally. Excursions, study tours and side trips will be arranged for the weekends and carefully integrated into the educational program. Public gardens, picturesque flea markets, shops, cafes, ancient basilicas and small chapels are all within walking distance of the campus. The teaching staff includes: Arnold · Franchetti, composer and chairman of the Composition Department, Hartt College of Music; George B. Cooper, chairman of the History Department, Trinity; lngolf Qually, chairman of the Art Department, Gettysburg College; Paul Smith, associate professor of English, Trinity; David Belmont '59, chairman of the Classics Department, Washington University, St. Louis; Mitchel N. Pappas, director of the Austin Arts Center, Trinity; Dante Matelli, Italian Department, Columbia University; Leonard Moss, professor of anthropology, Wayne State University, Detroit; Rev. Alan Tull, Chaplain of Trinity; William L. MacDonald, Sophia Smith Professor of Art, Smith College; and Dr. Campo. Students have already registered from such institutions as Bryn Mawr, Dickinson, Columbia, Washington University·, University of Kansas, Swarthmore, University of Denver, Wisconsin, Vassar, George Washington, Boston University, R.P.I., Connecticut College, Smith, University of Pennsylvania, Marquette, University of Connecticut, Pembroke, Mills, Northwestern and Trinity.

Members in the group include•(left to right): Dr. Lockwood, Dr. George B. Cooper, Dr. Michael R. Campo, Mitchel N. Pappas, Dr. Freeman Sleeper (also on hand to say good-bye), Dr. David E.

COMMENCEMENT (from page 1) But more noticeable than the differences in this Commencement were the similarities to previous graduations. Like many other commencements, rays of sunlight shot through the elms (only now there are fewer elms), the Governor's Foot Guard Band provided the appropriate music, the gathering stood during the singing of 'Neath the Elms and the National Anthem (although about a dozen raised clenched fists during the

latter) and the usual crush of relatives and sweethearts seeking graduates followed the benediction. Like other classes, this one was slightly more numerous than its immediate predecessor. And like others, its members were about to go out into a world full of promise and uncertainty. And most certainly this class like others contained future doctors, lawyers, teachers, businessmen, ministers and community leaders. And, of course, unlike the others, the Class of 1970 has some potential housewives and, in fact, one mother.

Beliefs and Values by Matthew M. Sheridan,.M.A. '68

By Karl E. Scheibe '59 Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Inc. 1970 159 pages Reviewed by Dr. M. Curtis Langhorne Professor of Psychology

Scheibe's book, "Beliefs and Values," will be of most value to psychologists, especially social phychblogists, but can be react with profit by professionals in the fields of sociology, economics, philosophy. The ' lay reader should be interested in the book as a means of comparing the approach to an understand~g of his own beliefs and values as treated from the much sounder approach of scientific theory and research than from the man on the street's adherence to hunches, intuitions, and superstitions. Scheibe's approach to the areas of beliefs and values is one much needed by the scientist in general and the psychological scientist in particular. He · provides for each of the important facets of these concepts a very carefully worked up historical background, clearly stated theoretical approaches, theoretical models, and, where available, evidence based upon research. The 214 titles listed under References provide a compendium of important papers and books which give the sources and resources relating to the topics. It is both timely and important that concepts like beliefs and values are brought into the realm of science. Too many scientists have relegated these concepts to the world of non-science and, while undoubtedly they have been influenced to the nth degree by their own beliefs and values, have made little, or no, attempt to study and understand them or to recognize how their research and theories rest upon them. Scheibe talks about these concepts within the context of the study of behavior and notes that: "What a person does (his behavior) depends upon what he wants (his values) and what he considers to be true or likely (his beliefs) about himself and the world (his psychological ecology)." "Beliefs are guides to action" which are developed through the individual's interaction with his world. This interaction leads to the development of a "set of functional dispositions or a belief system which are · implicit expectations concerning what leads to what." Predictive beliefs (expectancies) may be stated in terms of probabilities, the chance of rain today is less than 10 percent. · The author fits the concept of values into the broader scope of the psychology of motivation. Answers to questions of value are basically value judgments which refer to "what is wanted, what is best, what is desirable or preferable, what ought to be done. They suggest the operation of wishes, desires, goals, valences, or morals." He shows how beliefs and values interact, how they change or (more humanly) resist change. The titles of the last three chapters give much of the flavor of the usefulness of the concepts of beliefs and values in all phases of human life: Chapter IV, "The Behavioral Consequences of Beliefs and Values"; Chapter V, "Transformations in Beliefs and Values: Research Issues"; Chapter VI, "Applications and Extensions," In conclusion, a few words about Chapter VI in which Scheibe attempts to "draw a common strand through a rather diverse array of items- mental illness, anomie and alienation, political deviations and revolutions, gambling,

Retiring John Taylor, professor of fine arts, is shown with his sketch for the pew-end honoring Dr. Albert C. Jacobs in his last year as president of the College. It was Professor Taylor's 12th pew-end design.

Taylor Retires: Plans To Paint John C.E. Taylor, professor of fine arts, is retiring after 29 years as a member of the Trinity faculty . A man of many talents, he has taught a great variety of courses in art history, an introductory course in studio drawing and painting and, during World War II when the Navy V-12 unit was on campus, he taught engineering drawing and descriptive geometry, the latter subject, he recently admitted, he never knew existed until he was given the assignment. He was also responsible for organizing and developing the pre-architecture major. Most of Mr. Taylor's training was acquired at the Academic Julian in Paris in the mid-1920's. He had his first showing at the Paris Salon in 1928. In more recent years, he has exhibited in Hartford, Boston, New York, Palm Beach, Rockport, Gloucester, San Francisco and New Orleans. He is represented in the Museum of American Art, New Britain, and in many private collections. The excellence of his work has brought many prizes and honorable mentions. Mr. Taylor received his· B.A. (1926) and M.A. (1940) degrees from Yale. After five years on the faculty at Lawrenceville School, he came to Trinity in 1941. He became a full professor in 19 56 and headed the department from 1945 until 1964. In addition to his teaching, Mr. Taylor has carried out many design commissions at the College, particularly in the Chapel, where he designe4 the last 12 pew-ends, the sides ·of the baptismal font, two vestments and the communion rail in the Crypt Chapel. He has also had design assignments from St. James Church, Glastonbury; St. Mary's-by-Sea, Fenwick; and Westover School. Noting his retirement, one of Mr. Taylor's colleagues said of him: "His talent was not only as a teacher but as a friend and adviser to the student. His patience, consideration, restraint and dedication has indelibly etched the man in the estimation of his students, fellow faculty and alumni. As a successor to Trinity's distinguished art professor, A. Everett Austin, Jr., Professor Taylor superstitions, and beliefs of various orders as they relate to the important task of self-definition. Beliefs are like ties created between internal curiosities and the responses of the external world. Thus is the person defined."

** * Karl E. Scheibe was graduated from Trinity in 1959 with the BS degree, a major in psychology, and with many honors. He received his PhD from the University of California (Berkeley) in 1963. He has been at Wesleyan University since 1963 and is now associate professor of psychology.

continued the tradition of excellence in the teaching profession with honesty, compassion and dignity ." What will Mr. Taylor do in retirement? Continue to paint and draw, of course. And in the fall, he will become a part-time member of the art faculty at Loomis School and is planning an exhibit of his graphic works in the Austin Arts Center which will open during Reunion Weekend .

1974 Class: 248 Men, 170 Coeds A preliminary survey of the incoming freshman class indicates acceptances have been received from 418 applicants - 248 men, 170 women.

Leonard Lieberman, chairman of the department of elementary education, Central Connecticut State College, spoke about trends in elementary education including interest groupings, individualization, innovative student teaching and flexibility in curriculum . Anthony Giorgio, chairman of the social studies department, Windsor Locks High School, spoke about the philosophy of education at the secondary level. He noted that the high school's traditional mission of preparing for life had developed new meaning in today's politicized society.' He suggested that not only would the teachers' role change · dramatically, but that students would use their community increasingly for a learning environment. The special role of the independent school was portrayed by · Nelson Farquhar, executive secretary, The Connecticut Association of Independent Schools. He characterized the future role for private schools as a continuing attempt to remain independent, while assuming new responsibilities in their communities. He stressed the adaptability and flexibility of the independent system in meeting new challenges to education. Officers of the Trinity Graduate Alumni in Education are: Dr. Joseph R. Dunn, Jr., president; Anthony Giorgio, vice-president and Mrs. Helen Fleming, secretary-treasurer.

Winston G: Davids - Valedictorjan

Steven K. Dowinsky -Salutatorian

Honorary Citations: A fellow historian and a Fellow of Harvard College, from which you received all of your academic degrees, you are a most welcome neighbor from New Haven. Yale has recognized your distinguished contributions to American history by asking you to chair its department and they by appointing you to the Farnam Chair of History. Earlier in your life you revealed both your academic versatility and patience by developing an undergraduate major in the humanities at that center of American engin e ering and scientific education, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where even the office numbers bore a nomenclature anticipatory of computerization . In 14-N-220 you began writing a remarkable series of books on Henry Morgenthau, the Republican Roosevelt, and Woodrow Wilson . To these you have added interpretative essays on our national experience. Perhaps having once served on a sub-chaser prepared you to relate the smallest particulars to the largest themes which have affected this country's history. I present to you a distinguished scholar and teacher from. Connecticut's oldest university - John Morton Blum. Hartford and the State of Connecticut have long known your quiet but conspicuous contribution to the cu1tural scene. You knew Yale in peace and war; for during your undergraduate years you served with the Yale Battery of the lOth Connecticut Field Artillery before scanning the seas from sub-chasers and minesweepers during the First World War. The U.S . Navy recognized your distinguished service by awarding you the Navy Cross in 1919; and you recognized early in your life the unending contagion of the sea. A sailor who has relu ctantly yielded to a one-cylinder engine, you have had a long career in insurance and a long dedication to the arts. Not only were you a founder of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, but you have also been its guardian and moving spirit for well over thirty years. It was this same orchestra which first performed the concerto you wrote . A director of the Hartford Conservatory, you are one of the few honorary life members of the American Federation of Musicians. Trinity College is proud to join with the citizens of Hartford in honoring the profound and continuing support you have provided the cultural life of this city . I present to you a patron of the arts - Francis Goodwin, II.

English has been your chosen field of instruction; a College Presidency, your for a distinguished career in p enance education - a career which began as a high school teacher and principal in Goshen, New York. From undergraduate study at Hartwick College you went to Harvard by way of Michigan to complete your doctorate. Cambridge retained its hold on you by making you director of general education in the humanities at Harvard. Your gift of inquiry and your prose style rest on a keen sense of The Logic and Rhetoric of Exposition, a book for which hosts of English teachers owe you a deep debt of gratitude. A master of the periodic sentence, you periodically enter the classroom to teach German and French authors as explicators of the human experience which is so

central to your vision of the mission which the liberal arts college must pursue. As President of Union College and Chancellor of Union University, a confederation of institutions in the Capital District of New York, you have brought to the discussions of higher education disarming candor and eloquence. And as a Board member of Volunteers for International Technical Assistance, you have emphasized the global perspective so essential to our future. Only snorkelling or snowshoeing divert you. I present to you a perceptive, patient, and pre-eminent statesman in higher education Harold Clark Martin.

Born in Hartford, you have known college campuses well, for you have served as chaplain for two and received a bachelor's degree from Lincoln University and an M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania. From the Philadelphia Divinity School you received your Bachelor of Sacred Theology and an honorary Doctor of Divinity. In your calling you have served in New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and most recently, the United States Virgin Islands, where you are Bishop. So conspicuous a career has inevitably brought an array of committee assignments. The City of Baltimore surely owes you high honor for having helped in the handling of so many agencies seeking to improve the welfare of that urban community. A member of 路 the Board of Directors of NAACP , a member of the Governor's Commission on Problems affecting the Colored Population, Vice-President of the Board of Directors of the Citizens Planning and Housing Association; these are. put a few of the tasks to which you so willingly turned. And now as Bishop of the Missionary District of the Virgin Islands for the Protestant Episcopal Church, you are seeking solutions for the alien worker and the non-citizen of those Caribbean islands. We welcome you back to your hometown, from which city you deserve great praise. It is truly a privilege to present to you - Cedric Earl Mills.

To this gentleman belong the inspiration and perseverance needed 路 to launch an imaginative new approach to planning for the future of Hartford - for the quality of life which must come to the urban community if it is to survive. This civic concern has expressed itself in other endeavors, for you have served as a past director of the Greater Hartford Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of Living. You are a Corporator of Hartford Hospital, Mt. Sinai Hospital, St. Francis Hospital and the Institute for the Blind. Your Canadian childhood, your undergraduate major in mathematics and physics at the University of Toronto: these have hardly diminished your conspicuous rise in American corporate life. Nor has taking to the air as your own pilot removed your grounding in the insurance industry where you hold the distinguished position of President of the Connecticut General Insurance Corporation. And you are not unfamiliar with campus issues, for you have served as chairman of the Board of Regents at the University of Hartford. For all of these contributions your adopted city is grateful, and it is an honor to present to you Henry Reginald Roberts.

First husband and wife to receive bachelor's degrees-John and Elizabeth Gallo. Three-month-old Chris will be eligible sometime hence.

Among other innovations, an organ was used at the Baccalaureate Service, played by Robert E. Gronquist, assistant professor of music and college organist. The tradition of the Governor's Foot Guard Band was preserved later at Commencement.


Two Commencement Speakers.· Both Urge Action Dr. Blum: In his commencement address, Dr. John M. Blum, Farnam Professor of History at Yale, questioned "whether the American people have left the morale, the energy, and especially the will to start the nation forward toward the goals that appeared to be so tantalizingly close only a quarter of a century ago." He said that the doubt about the national will "lies at the center of what seems at times a gap between the generations.'' He then characterized the gap as "three ways oflooking at the national condition, three cultures - the bland, the cool, and the passionate - that do fall irregularly along generational lines." Dr. Blum referred to the bland culture as "the culture of complacency," and said that it attracts particularly those born fate in the 19th century . "That generation," he said, "symbolized perhaps best by Dwight D. Eisenhower, brought to the 1950's the faith of 1917 -the belief that the United States ... had both an exemplary and a missionary obligation to carry the endlessly progressing American way throughout the world. " Those advocating the bland culture, he said, "fervently believe that the American system has operated so benignly, so equitably as to assure to all who are deserving a life of comfort and satisfaction." "In that formulation," Dr. Blum continued, "those who have not reached a circumstance of comfort are by definition not deserving ." Dr. Blum criticized exploitation by private industry of off-shore oil reserves and the automotive industry for failing "to provide safe and clean, cheap and efficient transportation" as examples of complacency about the American system. He said, "Those who believe that everything is all right have failed to identify, much less to change, what is manifestly wrong." Applause interrupted Dr. Blum on several occasions, the first when he questioned the hypothesis, "what is good for America is good for the world."

He said, "That belief exaggerates the presumed dangers posed by the Soviet Union and China; it insults the great cultures of Africa and Asia; it encourages the prevalent fallacy that the Indochinese deserve the benefits of American military occupation." There was also applause when Dr. Blum referred to the invasion of Cambodia and the "systematic despoilation of its land, its resources, its villages and its people." Turning from the "bland" to the "cool" generation, Dr. Blum said he was referring to those born at about the time of the first World War who "never believed that everything was all right." As an example, he comment~d that John F. Kennedy was "the best symbol of the cool culture." It was the "style" of the New Frontier, he said, that "overshadowed the achievements of the 1000 days." "It was the promise inherent in that style," he continued, "for which Americans mourned when John F. Kennedy was killed." He went on, "The politics of promise, the politics of the cool culture, created extraordinary expectations." Dr. Blum ventured that the culture invited criticism of society , poverty and repression, and that the objectives of that criticism - "the goals of peace and justice" .:::'particularly excited the young. "But after 1964," he said, "those goals receded. As before, so then again, war and the moods engendered by war denied the possibilities of greatness in the society."· Dr. Blum cited too the frustrations of those born after World War II who learned "not the least from the cool culture, that everything was not all right, that much was very wrong" in the nation and in the world. The response by youth "gradually turned first sour and then angry when the invitation to social criticism and consequent social action gave way to official demands for a new complacency, and to violence, sometimes official violence in its imposition." Dr. Blum said, "The culture of the cool had been succeeded by a renascent, defensive and now surly culture of the bland." The resulting despair, said Dr. Blum, "has produced much of the controversial

counterculture of this time ... a passionate culture - passionate in its style, passionate in its impatience, passionate for its objectives." Specifically referring to 1970 college graduates, he said it is a "culture that sets them apart alike from their parents and grandparents, whether cool or bland." Dr. Blum commented that it was "a culture of men and women, of whatever color and background ... " Again there was applause when Dr. Blum stated that "the passionate culture reflects the impatience of youth even \ with surmountable obstacles and expresses the outrage of the sensitive with palpable injustice. Its expressions and its beliefs may, to be sure, in the end destroy the believers, but may instead save America." He said, "to be bland is to be blind, and to be only cool is to risk imperative ends for transient means. There is ample occasion for passionate outrage." "But," he continued , "there is also increasing evidence that undisciplined, unstructured, unthinking outrage will not only miss the targets that created it but also generate opposing passions capable of destroying it." "In contrast," he continued, "a passion for justice, for action, for change, such a passion directed by style and informed by reason may restore those ancient truths which almost two centuries ago identified America with the best hopes of mankind." Dr. Blum pointed to the "determination of alerted . youth to dedicate itself to the satisfaction of those aspirations that must not be allowed to recede - to international comity and understanding; to an end of adventurism abroad; to disarmament and thus, in all, to peace; to domestic justice and equity ; to war only against poverty and the conditions that create it; and thus, in all, to the dignity of diverse men in their diverse ways, to the reciprocal generosities of social brotherhood." Dr. B !urn concluded that the attainment of those ends requires "rational and structured action , cerebral energy , and a cool head. It demands also, in this country in this day, the sustained commitment of cold and intelligent outrage against injustice ; it demands passion in the cause of right." The immediate reaction to Dr. Blum's address was a standing ovation by members of the Class of 1970.

Mr. Mills:

Dr. Blum addressing the Commencement audience in the traditional setting

A second commencement · speaker, . invited at the request of the senior class, Kenneth Mills, an assistant professor of philosophy at Yale, told the graduates, "It is my belief that the country is much more in trouble than is sometimes seen to be the case even by its critics.'' He said, "A failure to develop a perception of the nature of this trouble will insure that we fail to discharge our duties as citizens." And he said that duty is "not fulfilled simply by those who ask us to love America or leave it.'' He emphasized that the duties of citizens in these times can "only be fulfilled ~v critical commitment." He warned the youth not to become preoccupied with "surface phenomena" instead of "depth phenomena." He criticized those notorious acts such as occupying buildings and ransacking dean's files as attacking "surface phenomena." The war and shooting of students, he said, "are only symptomati~ of a deeper crisis in our society. It is time we understood the nature of repression," and

he added, "When a society finds itself embarked upon a war such as we are embarked upon in Southeast Asia, that country is headed for deep divisions. " It is at such a time "that we must be vigorous to see that areas of dissent do not contract." We must ask "structural questions" of our society, he said. For example, he said, do the "social structures in our society provide the room we need for the kind of changes that are necessary?" And he asked, "How is it that a nation with a GNP of over $800 billion can not find the resources for those in need at home?" Much of the problem, he said, lies with· the system's "obsession with commodities." "It is not enough to live in a society just for more and more

Mr. Mills

commodities. Corporate enterprise must be responsive to human needs now and not to more corporate profits." He said our "culture of commodities" has brought a deterioration of our human responses. "We no longer hear the cry from the Black ghettos ... we do not cry out for social justice.'' "The machinery of repression grinds against the Panthers." And he said , "While I do not agree with the Panthers, I do believe .;ustice must be equal... we must recognize the machinery of repression .. .if we don't it will turn on us. There is no hiding place ... class of 1970 or 1920 - we must stand up to repression." In speaking about the nature of recent "strikes'.' on campuses, he said the term strike "was inappropriate" because "we were not striking against the university but asking the university to realize that, as a prime institution of the society in the shaping of values and the maintaining of a human tradition - it can no longer afford to neglect the events of the world outside. It can no longer afford to believe that a policy of academic neutrality is a posture it can maintain." "The universi_ty has never been neutral, it presupposes that society in which we live .. .its tasks are to socialize people for that society, to develop skills that society needs; therefore, it shares the presuppositions of that society." He told his audience, ''What we really are asking is that the university take time out and reexamine those presuppositions. As a keeper of tl-iose traditions of learning, the university must provide the space for young people today - students. faculty and people in the community to start a systematic reexamining of those suppositions." He told the graduates, "The task for all of us is to make a serious and intelligent commitment to examine the problems or the society. Unless we see these problems and move with due speed we are in serious trouble." "We can begin," he· said. "by simply saying to the drift of our society .. .1w more, no more!"

LETTERS To the Editor :

I read with interest the article in the ALUMNI MAGAZINE by James Hanley '7 ~ nn the transformation of Krieble Auditorium into the C'ine'studio . The pmjcct is truly meritorious, and the students do deserve a tremendous vote of thanks. However, I was disappointed to see no acco lades for Messrs. Lawrence Stires and Jnhn Monaccio whose ideas and unstinting efforts have been instrumental in bringing to fruition and in sustaining this important activity . Without the professional back-up provided by the Director of the Audio-Visual Center and the academic stature lent by Mr. Stires's college course in the film, neither the Film Society nor the Cine'studio would enjoy their growing reputations.

rTrinity Era Dies With Dan; He Taught His Boys To Be Men' No one could quite believe that Dan Jessee had died and Karl Kurth, director of athletics, expressed it for all when he said, "Dan was the kind of guy you didn't figure to pass away." There had been no hint of any serious illness, just a bothersome hip on which he planned to have an operation in May. Friends who had visited him recently at his Venice, Florida, home reported him in good health and spirits. On Wednesday , April 29, his neighbor and former rival football coach at Williams College, Len Watters, found his body. He apparently had died in his sleep the day before. His wife, Charlotte, was visiting their daughter in Kansas City, Kansas at the time.

Donald D. Hook Associate Professor Department of Modern Languages To the Editor: Many thanks ·for the first copy of the TRINITY REPORTER, which reached me here (recuperating from an appendectomy, a surprising end to my year of teaching English). I was pleased with the new format and the up-to-date character of the reporting, which I hope continues. I appreciated knowing more or less exactly what is going on at one U.S . establishment of higher learning, as the picture given in French newspapers of the present situation in the U.S. is confused, to say the least. I shall be able to keep in closer touch beginning in September, when I return to teach one C(l)urse and work on my Ph.D. · thesis in the French department ·at Yale . I thoug)lt also you n1ight be interested in having the enclosed clipping, which appeared in the International HERALD TRIBUNE, Paris, on Monday May 4. W.R. Carlson '66 Orleans, France The clipping mentioned was a two-paragraph notice of Dan Jessee's death. To the Editor:

Due to the fact that I do not subscribe to the leftist 'Ofiented social policies now in existence at Trinity, policies that pave the way for eventual revolution and anarchy , please remove my name from your mailing list. Emery C. Cook '49 Aberdeen, Md.

Dan Jessee's last appearance in a Trinity uniform -May 13, 1967

Daniel Edward Jessee, 69, had been head football coach at the College for 35 years, the longest tenure for head coach in the nation at the same college. Following his last season in 1966, he was named College Division Coach of the Year by vote of the nation's coaches. Considered one of the best teachers of the collegiate game and a masier of the offense, he was elected president of the American College Football Coaches Association in 1966, the first coach from a small college so honored. His record at Trinity was unparalleled. His football teams, including four undefeated elevens, won 150, lost 76 and tied 7 over the 35 seasons. Preceding the homecoming game in 1966, Trinity's varsity gridiron was named "Jessee Field," a tribute he considered his greatest honor. In baseball, his lifetime

record was 23 7-156-5. He was also head coach of squash racquets from 1937 to 1958 and his teams compiled a record of 160-111 . President Lockwood, who played tackle on Professor Jessee's 1942 team as an undergraduate, said: "Dan's death brings sorrow to Trinity and to many who, as students, as alumni and as sports fa_r;~ knew him during his 35 years here. He was a great coach, a greater teacher, who saw athletics as vital to the education of the young. "He was a warm, witty man, who worked others almost as hard as he worked himself. "Once my coach, and long my friend , I share the grief of his family and of the many Trinity people. who loved him." A native of Grayson, Ky., Coach Jessee was graduated from Pacific University in 1926 from which he also received an honorary degree following his brilliant career at Trinity in 1967. He entered coaching after a promising professional baseball career (1927-1930), as property of the Cleveland Indians, was cut short by a knee injury. He received his masters degree from Columbia University, in 1931, and was appointed head football coach and instructor in physical education at Trinity the following year. He was named professor of physical education in 1958 and retired as professor emeritus. During World War II, and again following t h e Korean conflict, he travelled over 65,000 miles for the government, conducting baseball and football clinics for U.S. servicemen around the world. In 19 39 , he wrote "Baseball," the first published text devoted to instruction of the sport. Last January, he was inducted in the American College Coaches' Baseball Hall of Fame at Kalamazoo Mich. He was named to the Helm'~ Football Foundation Hall of Fame in 1963 and served collegiate football in numerous ways, including membership on the rules committee, as a trustee of the National Football Coaches Association and on selection committees. When the news of Coach Jessee's death reached Hartford, sportswriters in the area were quick to respond with praise and fond memories about the man who had made "good copy" for 35 years. Headline in the COURANT: "Jessee: Abrasive, Inventive, Successful." Headline in the TIMES: "Trinity Era Dies with Dan; He Taught His Boys to Be

Among other things the Alumni Bulletin announced a lecture on April 21 by Dr. Robert B. Oxham on the topic, "The Chinese Cultural Revolution: An Impossible Dream?" Possible -indeed, but what are .the 'consequerr'ces? I 'too have found myself searching for realistic answers to Mao's philosophy and actions, as well as those of his supporters in the West. During the past year I came across a pamphlet which was originally written in German for the European situation, but which has since been translated into English. In its revised American edition it is truly an eye-opener for the current developments in our country ... Anyone interested in the complete pamphlet is welcome to have a copy free of charge by writing to me at 6100 Darmstadt-Eberstadt, P.O .B. 29, West Germany. Kenneth C. Washburne '68

Ray Oosting Professor of Physical Education, Emeritus . "Those who worked with Dan Jessee at Trinity are sad indeed of the news of his untimely death so soon after retirement. Dan was a great football coach but,. more than that, he was a fine man. Trinity boys who came in contact with Dan learned how to tackle life's problems as well as the opposing ball carrier."

John L. Bonee '43 "I was terribly fond of him. He was the kind of guy you were ioo percent for or nothing. I think he was the most influential person in my life during my college years. Not academically, but in preparation for life. He was hard-nosed, demanding and an exceptionally able coach." Robert D. O'Malley '38 "He was a football coach without a peer in the eastern part of the United States, one who thoroughly knew the game. Playing for Dan one would put out 100 percent for the guy. William Goralski '52 "Dan came to Trinity when i was a junior. A great guy, he immediately changed what had been a lackadaisical attitude at the school to a winning one. His idea was it was a hell of a lot more fun if you win. This is going to be tough on his wife, Cbarlotte. No matter what the weather, or sport, she would be in the stands to watch her husband's teams play. For years, I had his senior athletes and the coaching staff for dinner. 1t was intriguing to hear those kids express their admiration and love for the guy." Charles T. Kingston '34 ''His mind was always going. He would watch the pros on Sunday, and we'd have a new twist to a play we had been using. He kept abreast of new things in the game. When someone came out with the 'I' formation among the bigger colleges and pros - we already had it." Charles C. Sticka '56

Men."

And Bill Lee, sports editor of the COURANT, concluded his column on the man known affectionately as the "Ole Perfessor" during his years on The Hill : "There may never be anything like another Jessee at Trinity. Only those of us who reported Bantam athletics in the dreary years before Dan came know how far forward Dan brought Trinity's athletic image. Only the athletes who gave their all in persistently losing causes can fully understand the nature of Dan Jessee's gift to Trinity College - the gift making Bantam athletes winners instead of losers."

Recent Bequests and Memorial Gifts

To the Editor:

"This came as a tremendous shock. Dan and I were so close - friends and associates all these years through thick and thin. It just seems impossible to me. We flew to the Philippines and Japan together on a coaching clinic for the armed forces - he in football, I in basketball. It's a sad day for me."

Trinity acknowledges with a deep sense of loss the passing of alumni and other friends of the College. It seems appropriate to list the bequests and memorial gifts which have been made to honor them. The Rev. Charles F. Nugent '33left a bequest of $1,012 for general purposes. Dr. Ethel C. Dunham, Hon. '57 left a bequest of $10,000 for endowment. The income is to be used for the purchase of books in the Sciences for the Library. , Mrs. Helen L. Blake, whose second husband was Dr. Edwin M. Blake, left a bequest to the College that is expected to total more than $1,000,000. Initial . distribution of this estate has given the College $100,000 for a memorial room to house Dr. Blake's collection of art and manuscripts and $19,650 for scholarship endowment. All additional amounts received are to be added to the endowment fund, the income of which is to be used without restriction for scholarships in memory of Mrs. Blake's first husband, The Rev. George Thomas Linsley,D.D. Gifts totalling $67,704 have been received to establish the Vernon K. Krieble Memorial endowment fund for faculty salaries in the Department of Chemistry. In addition, gifts have been received in memory of the following alumni: The Rev. Louis I. Belden '94 John F. Walker '29 Victor F . Morgan '99 David H. Grace '50 Adrian H. Onderdonk '99 Jacob W.

1927 THE TIME HAS COME, AS YOU KNOW WELL FOR MY ANNUAL TRY AT DOGGEREL. So now we start to try anew To put some thoughts on paper A scratch of the dome, a sip of brew And we're off on this annual caper! I

'Twas back in nineteen twenty-three When first we hit the Hill. Our thoughts were not of tragedy The racial problem was still. The changes within the forty-seven years Have really been stupendous. The riots, the blood, and the salty tears Were not even imagined by us. Our main concern was Twenty-Six With paddles and cuckoo parties. We'd toe the line or be in a fix With belligerent sophomore hearties! What seemed so important to our ken Now fades asairee that's bent. We could not even imagine then A contempt for the Establishment! But times have changed and so have we If only to grow much older. The kids today take a real look-see And daily grow freer and bolder. We never thought that God was dead Or that Panthers were two-legged. We bowed our heads when prayers were said The Flag and God were wedded. Flowers were for decoration Their children were but buds. We would not dream of confiscation We never heard of HUDs. We had no trip with grass or speed And we shot no heroin. Instead we'd say, "Now what I need Is a belt of home-made gin!" We could be wrong if we should feel That youths know not what they do. Give them a plus for all their zeal And trust that some good will ensue. Perhaps the young, the thinking man Can aright the woes that arc So let them do just all they can As we look on from afar. But it seems to me there's a job to be• done And it needn't be by revolution Today's hunger and strife is too big to shun And we could help to lind the solution. So write your Reps in Washington And do your share at home. You too can help to get a project done Don't just sit there and moan! For the world is made of young and old To each its way of life 'Tis not for us to storm and scold But help them in their strife•.

Trinity Looks At New Proposal For New England Athletic Group ;

Post Jr. College Kings wood Hotchkiss Wesleyan Choate Varsity Crew (27-5)

Eleven small liberal arts colleges are seriously considering formal adoption of an agreement on athletic policy as the basis for a New England Small College Athletic Conference. Based on the 1955 Pentagonal Agreement, the proposed agreement defines the basic principles of the conference as "Keeping the program in intercollegiate athletics in harmony with the essential educational purposes of the institution, ensuring that competing players are representative of the student body, and allowing the academic authority in each college to control intercollegiate athletic policy." The agreement specifies policies for eligibility rules, out-of-season practice, post-season competition, limits on

recruitment activity, financial aid awards, and exchange of information. Dr. James I. Armstrong, president of Middlebury College, who made public that the Conference was being considered said, "It is hoped that all eleven colleges will be able to reach institutional decisions by the fall of 1970." The schools considering membership in the Conference are: Amherst, Bates, Bowdoin, Colby, Hamilton, Middlebury, Trinity, Tufts, Union, Wesleyan and Williams. Over the past two years, Karl Kurth has been meeting with athletic directors of the other schools considering details of such an agreement and more recently Dr. Lockwood has been meeting on the presidential level.
