Hendel's Book Nudges Spock's
Massachusetts, Wisconsin, William and Mary and, even before Hendel arrived on the scene, Trinity.
Distinguished scholars have commented very favorably on the book. Sidney Hook, for example, wrote that it was "far and away the best in its field." J. Roland Pennock calls it "one of the very best collections of readings on American government." Faced with these encomiums, Dr. Hendel will only go so far as to say that "I guess it was the first book of its kind to deal in an issue-oriented fashion with the affairs and theory of government." The new edition of the book deals with such recent controversies as the balancing of power after Watergate, compensatory or preferential treatment in employment and education, the fundamental premises and goals of American foreign policy including detente, and how pluralistic and successful America really is. Coming to Trinity in 1969 as visiting professor, Hendel was appointed chairman of the political science department the following year and served in that capacity until mid-1973. He has long been active in the American Civil Liberties Union and curr.e ntly is vice chairman. He practiced law in New York City for ten years before receiving his doctorate from Columbia in 1948, the year Basic Issues was published.
Board Elects Two Trustees
The publication in January 1976 of the eighth edition of Hendel and Bishop's Basic Issues of American Democracy, edited by Samuel Hendel, professor of political science at Trinity, is a publishing event of the first order. This textbook, with its reasoned analyses of opposing or variant positions on the fundamental values, conflicts and persistent issues of American democracy and politics, broke new ground with its initial publication in 1948 when it was co-edited by Hillman M. Bishop, who had been Hendel's teacher at The City College of New York. Indicative of the book's popularity and wide appeal is the statement of the political science editor of Prentice-Hall who as early as March 1971 wrote Hendel, "You may be staggered at the realization that since the book's initial publication in March 1948 it has sold approximately 338,000 copies . You're getting right up there along with Dr. Spock and the Bible." Included in the hundreds of institutions which adopted Basic Issues are Columbia, Berkeley, Oberlin, Yale, Vanderbilt, U.C.L.A., University of
Hendel Professor Hendel is also the author of Charles Evans Hughes and the Supreme Court and of a number of scholarly articles. He has taught in the graduate faculties of the City University of New York, Columbia University and at the Claremont Graduate School. During the Fall term he taught a course at the University of Connecticut Law School in the first professorial exchange arrangement between the two institutions.
New Look Seen for lOP Program During January it was announced in the press that Dr. Alan Marvin Fink has been appointed director and Mrs. Louise H. Fisher, assistant director of Trinity's Individualized Degree Program . It was also announced that tuition charges for the program have been reduced to two-thirds that of regular tuition costs. IDP is Trinity's innovative approach to the concept of continuing education. In this unusual program, designed for non-resident as well as resident students, participants are not required to attend classes. Nor are they locked into a four-year track. Depending on their individual circumstances, students may complete the degree program in fewer than four or as many as seven or eight years. Students may register at any time and graduate whenever they have satisfactorily completed examinations and projects in a prescribed numbel:'-> of '-Study- anits. -All work- is supervised by faculty advisors in the student's major and minors. 'This program," President Lockwood observed, "represents Trinity's unique approach to the need for continuing education. Its flexibility and its rigor distinguish the IDP from other programs; its experimental nature has already made an impact here and abroad." Currently there are some 35 students enrolled in the program begun in 1973 and the first IDP graduation will take place sometime next spring, probably (Continued on page 2)
Lockwood Named Chairman of A.A. C. President Lockwood has been elected Chairman of the Association of American Colleges. The AAC is the major spokesman for private and public colleges and universities of the liberal arts and sciences, dealing with substantive issues in higher education. There are about 800 member institutions in the United States and Canada. In addition to expanding the programs of AAC, Lockwood will lead negotiations for the establishment of a new educational organization, the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. NAICU will act as the lobbying group in Washington for private higher education. Lockwood has been a director of the Association of American Colleges since 1973. His election as chairman took place at the annual meeting of the association in Philadelphia February 8-10. Dr. Paul F. Sharp, president of the University of Oklahoma, was elected vice-chairman.
Oxnam: Tv he Sino-Whirling Dervish What does a Trinity associate professor of history do on sabbatical? If he is Robert B. Oxnam he takes a year-long busman' s holiday. For Oxnam, an authority on modern Chinese history, this means serving as director of the prestigious China Council of the Asia Society during a year when that seemingly inscrutable country leaped into the headlines. It meant writing articles for multimillion circulation newspapers such as the New York Daily News and being interviewed by executive producer Ron Bonn of the CBS News Walter Cronkite Show on the significance of the death of Chinese premier Chou En-Lai. Prior to President Ford's trip to China late last year, Oxnam directed the China Council's massive effort to educate the media on the country's political structure, the background of its leaders, and the history of the Chinese communist movement and of Sino-American relations. Beginning last summer, the Council prepared a comprehensive press briefing packet for the media people covering President Ford's China trip. Some 300 copies were distributed to the newspapers, wire services, news magazines and the radio and TV networks. The packet proved so effective that the New York State Board of Education then published 2,000 copies for use by colleges, secondary schools and public affairs organizations. During the fall, as the time for the visit grew closer, the pace picked up. In late October, Oxnam and his associates provided separate background From page 1 in June. (Another student had been expected to graduate but her recent marriage has slowed her academic progress.) Ages of the lOP participants range from 20 to 53 years; more than half are over 30. About half reside in the greater Hartford area and, with the exception of one student who hails from West Virginia, the remainder commute from about 20 nearby Connecticut towns. Seventeen different occupations are listed by the students. Not surprisingly, the largest single category is housewife but others include a seaman, political aide, reporter, chrome plater and insurance programmer. In view of the program's considerable flexibility and appeal for those who are employed but have the capacity to benefit from a "self-paced," individually tailored program, Dr. Fink and Mrs. Fisher are drawing up plans to promote the IDP concept more widely. Dr. Fink is assistant professor of psychology at Trinity. He attended Bowdoin College and received a Ph.D . from the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota in 1972. Before coming to Trinity, Dr. Fink was an instructor at the University of Minnesota and did clinical work in Minneapolis area hospitals and clinics. He is the co-author of articles appearing in the Journal of Experimental Psychology and Educational and Psychological Measurement. Mrs. Fisher, who returned to Trinity after marriage and raising a family, received a B.A. in 1973. In earlier years
sessions for producers and commentators at NBC and CBS. In early November, Oxnam was in Washington to provide briefings for key figures in the Washington press corps, five in all. Then, back to New York where four days later the Oxnam group briefed reporters in the morning and followed up with a luncheon briefing for editors and television commentators. Meanwhile, Oxnam was directing a series of background studies in which, Oxnam says, "We are particularly concerned about exploring the valueladen questions that arise out of Chinese history and contemporary affairs, and bringing a humanistic focus to the policy issues confronting Americans as they consider SinoAmerican relations and our future role in the world." Name of the first pilot study: "Sino-American Relations in Historical and Global Perspective." He has also scheduled for February three regional conferences in Boston, Chicago and Seattle, plus a national conference in March in Racine, Wisconsin, which will bring together China experts and authors and a select group of journalists, businessmen, educators, and public affairs leaders from each community. The way for all of this was paved last summer when, seeking guidance for China Council planning, Dr. Oxnam visited 21 cities for meetings with hundreds of teachers, public affairs leaders, editors and journalists. Oxnam was not quite sedentary at Trinity either, where he teaches both Chinese and Japanese history with sp_ecial fields o interest in seventeenth
Oxnam and twentieth-century China. After graduating from Williams in 1964 and earning his doctorate from Yale in 1969, Oxnam joined Trinity in the fall of that year . In 1972 came the book "History and Simulation: the Ch'ing Game," followed by biographies on Ch'ing China in "The Encyclopedia of World Biography." In 1975 he published "Ruling From Horseback," a book concerning politics in seventeenth-century China . In the works now is a biography of the Shun-Chih who ruled China fr:om 1644 to 1661.
Oxnam also found time during this period to serve as special assistant to President Lockwood and as director of the Individualized Degree Program and, hardly pausing for breath, to participate in activities of the Association for Asian Studies and the Committee on U.S. I China Relations, as well as the Modern China Seminar at Harvard. What is Oxnam's appraisal of the current U . S./China relationship? Here's what he told some 2.8 million readers of the New York Sunday Daily News: "It appears that Americans will have to wait at least until 1977, after the presidential campaign is over, for new steps toward normalization . And when these steps are taken, our diplomats will be negotiating with the new cast of Chinese leaders. It is unclear whether those leaders will share Premier Chou's deep interest in the U.S. connection. In fact, we know that some of the emerging Chinese leadership, particularly the ideologues and military figures, remain skeptical about close ties with the U.S. which they see as a 'capitalistic and imperialistic' power. "The overall effect of Chou's death is to cast these clouds of uncertainty over Chinese and world affairs. For the Chinese, although they can perpetuate many of his institutions and policies, will find it difficult to recapture Chou's administrative and diplomatic acumen. For Americans, it means that we shall have to be patient with the current plateau in U.S./Ghina relations, hoping that those relations do not deteriorate in the meantime . And when the time comes for considering normalization once again, we shall have to act with considerable decisiveness without the benefit of Premier Chou on the other side of the conference table."

Trinity joins 1n Unique Neuroscience
Program Five members of the Trinity faculty have joined with Hartford's Institute of Living and the University of Hartford to offer an innovative graduate program in neurosciences. So far as is known, it is the only Masters program offered at this level with a core curriculum of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology and advanced psychology. The program would not have been possible without the cooperation of all three institutions. Highly specialized facilities shared by the group include space for animal surgery, human sleep studies, a light-tight room, a radiofrequency room for specialized physiological recordings, and computer hard and software. A few schools, Amherst for example, offer undergraduate programs in the neurosciences but, until the advent of this program last fall, a Masters level program was not available. Teaching in the program from Trinity are Dr. David Winer, associate professor of psychology (physiological aspects of motivation); Dr. Joseph D. Bronzino, associate professor of engineering (electrical aspects of biological signals); Dr. Alan M. Fink, assistant prof~ssor of psychology (neurological aspects of child clinical psychology); Dr. Karl F. Haberlandt, associate professor of psychology (memory and learning); and Dr. Charles R. Miller, professor of physics (applications of physics in neuroscience). Together with members of the University of Hartford's departments of biology and psychology and the Laboratories for Experimental Psychophysiology at the Institute of Living, the Trinity faculty is providing a much-needed multidisciplinary approach to an important area in experimental psychology, neurobiology and psychobiology.

Breeches Bible? Gun Wad Bible? A valuable collection of eight Bibles and early medical books has been donated to the Trinity College Library . Among the books donated is a Geneva or "Breeches" Bible, published in 1560 by English exiles in Geneva, Switzerland . In this Bible, Adam and Eve wore breeches instead of the original fig leaves . This was the first English Bible to adopt Roman type and to divide the chapters into verses. Also donated was the first American Bible to be printed with American type, of which only 195 copies are known to be extant. The unbound sheets were
Ferris Endows Economics Chair George M. Ferris, founder and chairman of the board of Ferris and Company, Inc ., an investment brokerage firm in Washington, D. C., has established an endowed professorial chair in Corporation Finance and Investments. The gift is the fourth major contribution which Mr. Ferris has made to Trinity. In 1957 he funded a named lectureship which is now being converted to the full professorial chair. In the 1960's he contributed funds toward the College's $2.4 million athletic
alleged to be used by the British soldiers as wadding for their muskets. This Bible acquired the name "The Gun Wad Bible." The books are a gift of Mrs . Ruth Bopp of Terre Haute, Indiana from the library of her late husband, Dr. Henry W. Bopp. Mrs. Bopp is the sister of the Right Reverend J. Warren Hutchens, Episcopal Bishop of Connecticut. Among the other Bibles donated are a Latin Bible published in 1483, a 1611 King James Version, the 1781 Aiken Bible (the first bible to be printed in English in the United States, by Robert Aiken, a Scottish emigrant), and three editions of the Sauer Bible (first American Bible in a modern European language). Among the medical works donated is a copy of William Harvey's Exercitato de motu cordis et sanguinis in animalibus of 1648 . This has been considered by some the most important book in the history of medicine. A copy of Andreas Vesalius's De humani Corporis fabrica libri septem was also given, bound in a fine contemporary stamped pigskin binding, dated 1574. A book by Rene Laennec, inventor of the stethoscope, is also in the Bopp collection. Publication of De l'auscultation mediate in 1819 revolutionized the study of diseases of the thoracic organs. The books in Mrs . Bopp's gift may be seen in the Watkinson Library .
TWO RARE BIBLES SHOWN ABOVE are part of a valuable collection recently given to the Library. The bible at top was the first to be printed with American type and only 195 are still in existence . British regulars used the unbound sheets as wadding for musket shot, hence the name "The Gun Wad Bible." The smaller bible was printed in Switzerland in 1560 by British exiles who felt that Adam and Eve's traditional fig leaves were inadequate. They unilaterally recycled the fig leaves and the couple appeared wearing breeches (see below).

January /February 1976
Both Major Fund Campaigns Galloping Down Homestretch Trinity got off to a good start in 1976 with both of its major fund-raising programs - the Annual Giving Campaign and the Campaign for Trinity Values - past the half-way point. Annual Giving, which provides expendable funds for currently budgeted College programs, reached $250,815 between the start of the campaign in October and the close of business December 31. This represents 50.2 percent of the $500,000 Annual Giving goal which must be raised before June 30, the end of the fiscal year. The Campaign for Trinity Values, the campaign to raise $12 million in new funds for endowment and library expansion purposes, reached $6 .8 million by the end of 1975 and over $7 million by mid-January. This capital campaign was publicly announced a year ago, and will be conducted on a regional basis throughout the country during 1976. Annual Giving, which includes the Alumni Fund, Parents Fund, Friends of Trinity Fund and the Business and Industry Associates, started the New Year with more donations than had been received by the same time in last year's drive. All four funds were ahead of a year ago . The December 31 total for the Alumni Fund was $156,717, or 51 percent of the $310,000 Alumni Fund goal. More than 2,000 alumni have contributed. This compares with gifts totaling $124,131 from 1,300 contributors a year ago. The Parents Fund reached 50 percent
of its goal by December 31, with gifts and pledges totaling $50,378 from 359 contributors. This year's goal is $100,000. A year ago contributions totaled $39,116 from 270 donors. The Friends of Trinity Fund, with $18,923, is at 63 percent of its $30,000 goal. The Business and Industry Associates, with $24,797, is at 41 percent of its $60,000 goal. One key element in the fall fundraising program was a six-evening Alumni Fund phonothon in early December involving some 80 student and alumni volunteers. Telephoning raised a total of $38,729 in firm pledges from 853 alumni, as well as indications from many other alumni that they would contribute this year. At least one more phonothon is planned before the end of this year's Annual Giving campaign. According to President Lockwood, "It is encouraging for Trinity to start 1976 knowing that in both our annual fund and our capital campaign; less than half of our goals remain to be raised. We have been impressed by the generous responses of our contributors, and by the enthusiasm and spirit of our campaign workers. Surely few colleges can report that Alumni Fund phonothons are so popular that volunteers have to be turned away because there aren't enough telephones to accommodate them all! "We are grateful, especially, to those who have recognized the importance of supporti ng _both our annu_al giving and our capital campaign. Annual gifts each year provide the short-range

For this year, we must reach our $500,000 goal before June 30. Capital gifts, on the other hand, are used for_ lo_pg-range investment in Trinity's endowment, providing permanent assurance that
the quality of the academic program can be sustained. The progress of the Campaign for Trinity Values so far encourages us to look forward to the succÂ§sful_ cornpletion _ oÂŁ our $J2 million goal within a year or so."

Trinity's English Accent The Year Aboard at East Anglia U. By Sue Weisselberg '76 "Would you like to buy a 'Once'? Only two pence for 16 pages of reading pleasure with thrills and chills galore." As an exchange student at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in England last year this was my war cry when trying to sell copies of a fortnightly news magazine, "Once," that two friends and I founded and edited - a large part of my junior year abroad. The University of E;ast Anglia maintains a direct student exchange with Trinity . UEA is one of seven new universities established in the early 1960's on the wave of English government expenditures in higher education. Located in Norwich in the county of Norfolk, it has about 3,200 undergraduates and 370 graduate students. I was one of six Trinity students (all '76) there for the year . Four of us - Anne Brown, Leslie Zheutlin, Cathy Eckert and myself were there on the Trinity-UEA exchange. Trinity students Maryann Crea and Debbie Moser attended as part of the Beaver College-Franklin and Marshall College program. "One of the most amazing things about last year was that all six of us had different friends and experiences," Anne said. "If you wanted to get anything out of it you had to make the effort. That can be good or bad, depending on your attitude. I enjoyed it." We pursued our own interests: the swimming club, a cheap food cooperative, choir, the Christian Union, the poetry society, the women's liberation group, volunteer visits with the elderly, and university publications.
Relaxing British Style The university was divided into schools, not departments. Students in the arts schools spent six hours a week in classes, taking two seminars per term for the three terms. Many students were able to do most of their work during the day, and therefore spent their evenings at the campus pub. Its rush hours were from 9:30 to 11 p.m ., when it closed because of licensing laws. There were several campus movies and "discos" a week, or one could always go into Norwich (two miles away with frequent bus service) for a meal, a play, or a film. It was so relaxing and comfortable, with little pressure and competitiveness for visiting students . I was able to take advantage of the English wit and dry sense of humor, and the companion attitude that a pint of beer was more important than an essay due the next day . Most of the 50 American exchange students at UEA attended classes in the School of English and American Studies. Like the other schools - Biological, Chemical, and Environmental Sciences; Computing, Development, European , and Social Studies; Fine Arts and Music; Mathematics and Physics - it was a three-year program, though there were graduate programs in each school. The three terms ran from October to mid-December, mid-January to mid-March, and mid-April through June. Exchange students were placed primarily in second-year semina rs, and the usual amount of work required was two papers and oral presentations for each class. No exams were given to second-years and visiting students.
AMERICAN STUDIES major Sue Weisselberg '76 decided to spend her junior year abroad because she wanted to look at the U.S. from a different perspective. "I could only see the trees," she says.
Courses offered covered English and American history and literature, some European history, some comparative literature and linguistics. My seminars were: Gladstone and 19th Century Politics, The Frontier and American Literature, The Rise and Fall of British Sea Power, The Growth of the American System of Government, British Society in the First and Second World Wars, and America Between the Wars. My grades ranged from "A" to "B-". The only exams given in the school were to first-years (freshmen) at the end of their "prelims" (required seminars the first two terms) and finals in the middle of the third term to third-years, who were under enormous pressure to do well. The finals counted about SO% toward the degree, which was pro-rated according to grades and exam results. (Degrees were, honors: first-class, second-class-1, second-class-2, and thirdclass; pass and fail .)
Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday (press day) -and then sell on Monday. The campus news agent sold some of the copies for us. We had a circulation of about 1,000 among students, faculty and administrators, and many copies were shared among friends. The city of Norwich, with a population of 122,000, was an absolute delight. Rumor had it that there were enough pubs for every day and enough churches for every week in the year. Norwich has a lovely cathedral; a castle that had been the city jail for centuries; a restored 17th century cobbled alley with shops and homes; other stores, including branches from London (110 miles away); a wonderful open market in the center of the city with food, flower and chips stalls and assorted paraphernalia, and an air and grace all its own. Since the dorm we lived in (housing 750 students) had kitchens and no meal plan, it was economical and fun to buy fresh food in
disco and were hungry, happy, depressed or just not sleepy. The breaks between terms were a monthlong, and provided an excellent opportunity to travel around Europe - one that we all took advantage of. On my first vacation I went to Edinburgh, London and Amsterdam, staying with a friend in a country house near Oxford at Christmas. The second . vacation was "see everything and survive on bread, cheese and youth hostels." I bought a rail pass and went to Luxembourg, Paris, Munich, Vienna, Salzburg, Venice, Florence and Athens, taking an overnight ferry across the Adriatic Sea, from Brindisi, Italy to Patras, Greece. I went to England as an American Studies major, hoping to get a different perspective on America and to enjoy doing so. In that year I learned more about myself than I think I could have learned at Trinity- and I learned about other people, America, England, traveling, and self-sufficient independence.
Seminar Pros and Cons The seminar system had a lot of potential; some faculty members really excelled in their fields, and their seminars were stimulating and rewarding. However, it was also a frustrating system . Some professors could not direct the discussions very well, so that when students made their class presentations, the result was boredom, not education. Without tests as a "check," it was tempting to skip the reading for class and just work on the papers. Since the seminar system was new, some of the more traditional faculty members were not comfortable with it, and some students were not used to class discussions . "It could be a vicious circle. Some discussions weren't good because people didn't do much outside work . In those cases, there was no motivation to do outside work because the discussions weren't good, " Anne pointed out. Instead of just learning the "facts," most faculty members encouraged us to think for ourselves and come up with our own theories. This , in itself, was excellent, but there was not enough emphasis on research to build a solid foundation for the theories. Maryann said that this is because "British students get a much broader background in research and thinking on their own earlier than we do ." My work load did not seem as heavy as it has been at Trinity, though my work was often more thought-provoking, perhaps because I was not swamped with routine work. In any case, it was a relief to escape from the mechanics of class lectures, tests, term papers and finals for a year. Besides working on the magazine "Once," I visited an elderly widow, Mrs. Hilda Richardson, from about 4 to 9 p.m . on Wednesdays and / or Sundays. I talked , watched television and ate meals with her, sometimes ran errands and generally just tried to rouse her from her misery . (Her legs and hip were painfully arthritic and she found it difficult to walk .)
"Once" in East Anglia Some friends and I caroled her at Christmas time, and in March wallpapered part of her flat. As an outlet from the somewhat insular student life, the volunteer program gave me a "home away from home ." Extremely dissatisfied with the weekly student paper - poorly written, always misspelled and illegibly printed on the student printing press - two British friends and I started our own magazine. We began "Once" in the middle of the first term and ended it in the middle of the third term, to give ourselves a rest. "Once" took up more time and energy than anything else last year, but despite all that, it was worth it. In its 12 years of existence, the university had never had anything like a fortnightly news magazine, and I'm proud that we were able to make it a success. Of course, there were puns on the name, including, 'Til try anything once," "Once was enough ," and "Not once again?" We wrote most of it (news stories, features, occasional satires, poems), typed it, layed it out, collated it and hawked it ourselves. A student friend printed it on the student printing press next to the publications office. Our investigative stories required interviews and research, so that sometimes most of the week before publication was spent on "legwork." Every other weekend was a "Once" weekend for us, and we'd be in the office from 10 a .m. to 1 a .m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 a.m.
"ONCE A WEEK I'd buy flowers here for my widow friend, Mrs. Richardson daffodils, crocuses or chrysanthemums for 25 pence a bunch. The marketplace has been here for more than 900 years with the City Hall and the 15th century Guildhall (on the right, above). We would buy most of our food in the market, all fresh, even down to the dead rabbits hanging in front of the butcher stalls. Over everything wafted the scent of fresh chocolate mingled, in a peculiar fashion, with the pungent odor of the fish stalls and the chips stands. City Hall, the building with the clock tower, was opened by George VI and replaced the Guildhall as the seat of city government. The Guildhall was begun in 1407 and has been presided over by 529 successive JYtayors and Lord Mayors of Norwich." the market. This frequent shopping gave us a vital connection between the university and the city that Trinity and Hartford lack. With the kitchens - one kitchen for every corridor, which had about 15 students, mostly in singles - we were able to mix often with the other students on the hall, sharing food and gossip. There were usually two American visiting students and 13 British students on each corridor. The kitchens were the scenes of mid-afternoon coffee breaks and late-night talks, when we returned from the pub or a
Editor's note : The University of East Anglia is the only foreign university to maintain a direct exchange with Trinity. There are five students there this year, and a total of 115 Trinity students studying in 10 foreign countries through a variety of exchange programs. Some are away for one semester, and the remainder for the year, in Great Britain, France, West Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Colombia, Denmark, Israel, and Mexico.

Where were you all at the Wesleyan game and the President's Reception? It was a great day and lively weekend despite that last minute field goal from Wesleyan. Well, I see we creamed them in basketball to start the Winter Term. I was pleased to receive a fine letter about our Class of 1916 Memorial Scholarship from Mrs. Nancy Tripp, assistant director of financial aid. Her letter concludes as follows : "I would like to express our appreciation for the assistance offered by the Class of 1916 Memorial Scholarship . We feel that these four students are making important contributions to the College. Such needy and deserving students would be unable to enroll at Trinity without scholarship assistance." She mentioned two girls and two boys from the Classes of 1976, 1977, and 1978, all of them self-supporting with our help from the '16 scholarship. That is great and I know it makes us realize that our Scholarship is a great success. Thank you Ms . Nancy Tripp for being so thoughtful ?S to tell us about it for Trinity. If you want more information about "our" four new bef\eficiaries, write me. Here's a line for CHARLES BAKER. Thornton Wilder, famous author and playwright and Pulitzer Prize winner, was a neighbor of mine and close friend to President Ogilby of Trinity years ago and a giver to Trinity . So what? I Well, Charles Baker published several books years ago, one of them entitled "Blood of the Lamb." I took it to Thornton Wilder for a critique and he came back with a good criticism which I duly conveyed to Baker. O.K. Charley, no charge for this plug.

Word has come from PAUL deMACARTE that he has moved his office to 1 Civic Center Plaza, P.O. Box 930, Hartford 06101. Paul is a chartered life underwriter for the Aetna Life Insurance Company. He lives abroad six months of the year and spends the other six months in Hartford . FRED TAN SILL, our Class Agent, has forwarded to me a lively letter from NED KENDALL raising an interesting question. He writes, "Some two or three years ago a member of a class around 1914 or 1915 told about going to Middlebury for a baseball game and how the opposing pitcher loused up all the Trinity batters by switching from right to lefthanded delivery depending on where a man was on base, whether it was a right or lefthanded batter - just switching all the time ." He closed by saying he never did know who this freak was! That was Elton Cronk who graduated at Middlebury and later taught at Simsbury High and did all the coaching. Ned graduated from Simsbury High in 1916 and remembers Cronk throwing to members of the baseball team four cuts to each man, two from the right and two from the left hand. He would always drop his glove so you never knew which way it was coming to you. Fred says, "I have heard of switch batters but never a pitcher who pitched both lefthanded and righthanded." I think KEN SMITH '25 will have to let us know whether or not such pitching has ever occurred in professional baseball. I suspect it is illegal. Friends can reach Ned C. Kendall at 410 56th Street, Des Moines, Iowa 50312. Let's have some news from others in the Class of '22.

It was great to receive Seasons Greetings from STAN and Ginny BELL! I find myself accused of not cheering loud enough at the Amherst and Wesleyan games - if only they knew! It seems they spent six weeks in Spain last year and for 1976 are considering Italy and Scandinavia. Happy landings to both. I was gratified that the suggestion in the November-December Reporter regarding the 1927 Library Fund resulted in greetings from Dr .

OLLIE (Perfect Host) JOHNSON hosted a less than overwhelming number of returning '35ers at the 40th. Present were BILL ANGUS, STEVE COFFEY, JIM COSGROVE, BILL CURTIS, GEORGE DICKERSON, FRED DUENNEBIER, CHARLIE HAASER, TOM HAGARTY, HARRY OLSON, ERIC PURDON, SIS SAMPERS, ARTHUR STOLZ, GEORGE WALKER, JOHN ZIETLOW and YOUR SECRETARY. There were also a goodly number on the distaff side including Fran, widow of CHARLIE WILDING. During the Friday buffet and .the Sunday brunch, a number of long forgotten anecdotes were resurrected from the nostalgic past. Author and raconteur Eric P. gave a heart rending account of the sinking of his boat - not on the storm tossed sea but at dockside. Eric also backed his claim as "the last boy birched in Britain." Somehow Eric seems to have fared better than the Empire. Ollie read messages from or told of several other '35ers who were unable to make the 40th, including MIMI MARQUET, TERRY MOWBRAY, LU KELLAM, DENNY FARNELL and SHED McCOOK. JIM COSGROVE was the recent subject of a feature article in the Hartford Courant. Jim, who is chief of Connecticut's Public Defenders, has handled thousands of cases since he entered this field in 1951. The accompanying picture showed Jim much as he looked in '35's balmy days at Trin. JACK AMPORT came up from his Madison, Connecticut summer home to see the Coast Guard game. Jack expects to retire from GE this February after 40 years. He mentioned having seen JACK MAHER on several occasions. We're proud to report that LU KELLAM represented Trinity at the inauguration of the new president of Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia. Let's start thinking about our 45th.

January / February 1976
TRINITY SPORTS Sports A wards The 1975 fall sports activities finally drew to a close with the presentation of letters and the announcement of the varsity football and soccer team captains for the 1976 season. Forty-seven letters were awarded to the members of the football team and twenty-three to the soccer team. At the post-season team dinner, Fullback Patrick Heffernan and defensive ends Donald Grabowski and Richard Uluski were selected as the new tri-captains for the 1976 football squad.

Junior Mark Moore was named as the recipient of the "Harold Shetter Award" for the most improved player.
Varsity Hockey (2-3) The varsity hockey team began the season in fine form with a 7-3 victory over Assumption College. Freshman wing George Brickley spearheaded the Bantam attack with a hat trick while sophomore center Tom Lenahan tallied twice. Senior Jim Lenahan and Freshman Tom Keenan finished out the scoring for Trinity with one goal apiece. Junior Ted Judson turned in an outstanding performance as the Bantams' net-minder, preventing 35 of 38 Assumption shots on goal from reaching their mark. The skaters then journeyed to Amherst where they dropped their next two contests in tournament play to Wesleyan 7-5 and Amherst 7-3. Trinity sprang to an early 2-0 first period lead against the Cardinals which changed to a 5-2 deficit when Wesleyan scored five unanswered goals in the second period. Wesleyan increased its lead with another score early in the final period but the Bantams roared back on goals by George Brickley, Ted Almy and Clinton Brown to close the gap to 6-5. The Trinity surge fell short, however, as the Cardinals tallied again and managed to stave off an intense
Bantam offensive in the final two minutes of the game. In the consolation round, Trinity once again opened the scoring as Tom Lenahan slipped a shot under the Amherst goalie midway through the first period. Within three minutes Amherst had responded with a score of its own and the two teams readied themselves for the second period with the score knotted at 1-1. In the next 20 minutes, Amherst exploded offensively, outscoring the Bantams 4-1. The Lord Jeffs added two more tallies in the final period and Jim Lenahan added one for Trinity as the Bantams saw their record dip below the .500 mark. Still on the road, the Bantams seemed unable to pull out of their slump, dropping their next matchup 6-1 to a strong Bentley team. It was a frustrating evening for Trinity as the Bantams skated well but only managed to put the puck in the Bentley net once as Tom Lenahan scored his fourth goal of the season. Returning to Trinity for their home opener, the Bantams squared off against the Indians of Bryant College in the Glastonbury Arena. A hometown crowd helped provide the spark as the Bantams returned to the winning track, downing Bryant 4-1 with their best effort of the season to date. Sophomore Fran Gray's late second period goal provided Trinity with a 1-0 edge over the Indians until Bryant hit on its only successful shot of the night with less than seven minutes remaining. But the Bantams were not to be denied a victory as Tom Lenahan blasted a shot off the chest of the Bryant goalie and teammate Tom Keenan flicked it in for the go-ahead score. Less than a minute later Trinity increased its margin when senior defenseman Nick Brady hit from the blue line. Ted Almy added an insurance tally as the Bantams rocketed to a 4-1 victory.
Varsity Basketball (1-2) The Trinity cagers opened their 1975-76 season against the University of Hartford in the first round of the sixth annual Trinity-UHartford Invitational Tournament. The heavily favored Hawks outdistanced the Bantams 85-81 despite a strong comeback effort by the Bantams behind the shooting of senior forward Othar Burks, who scored 26 of his 32 points in the second half. Trailing by as many as thirteen points with less than ten minutes to play, the Bantams battled back to knot the score at 79-79 with 1:32 remaining.
Update: Basketball Since the story above was written , the Cagers have defeated nine opponents in a row, equalling the winning streak record set by the 1964-65 team captained by Jim Belifore.

Niland Receives National '~wede" Nelson Award for Sportsmanship
Niland Bantam linebacker George Niland '76 has been selected as the recipient of the coveted 30th annual "Swede" Nelson National Award for Sportsmanship. Niland is the first Trinity Âˇ player to receive the award whose previous winners include such former collegiate standouts as Brian Dowling of the New England Patriots, Dick Jauron of the Detroit Lions, and Floyd Little and Otis Armstrong of the Denver Broncos. The award is named in honor of the former Harvard University football great, Nils C. Nelson, and is presented each year by the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston "to the player who by his conduct on or off the gridiron demonstrates a high esteem for the football code and exemplifies sportsmanship to the highest degree ."
Niland was cited for his ability to overcome a severe leg injury sustained while a member of the freshman football team in 1972 and the leadership and sportsmanship which he exhibited as a starting linebacker and the varsity's Most Valuable Defensive Player in 1975. His contributions to the Trinity and Hartford communities were also cited. He served with distinction as an intern in the office of Hartford's mayor, as a coach in the track program at Hartford's Northwest Catholic High School and as a voluntary social worker at the Clifford House, a group for delinquent boys. In 1974, he received a letter of commendation from the City of Hartford for his â€˘ assistance in rescuing 14 people from a burning apartment building .
The Hawks hit on two attempts from the field before Trinity responded with a basket on a long jump-shot by sophomore guard Larry Wells. Trinity's fate was finally sealed when Hartford's Larry Ayers made two free throws in the final seconds to put the game out of the Bantams' reach. Trinity took on Wesleyan in the second round and handily defeated the Cardinals 77-67 for their first win of the year. There was little question regarding the outcome of the contest as Trinity rolled up eleven points before Wesleyan managed to get on the scoreboard. Othar Burks again led the Bantams in scoring with 16 points while junior forward Dave Wesselcouch added 12 more. Junior center Peter Switchenko led the team in rebounding for the second consecutive evening. Othar Burks was named to the All-Tourney team for the second time in three years. Othar was the leading individual scorer in the Tournament with 48 points . From Hartford, the Bantams travelled to Amherst where they dropped a 75-64 decision to a tough 2-0 Lord Jeffs squad. The contest was far closer than the final score indicated as Trinity led throughout most of the first half and paced Amherst to a 60-60 deadlock with six minutes remaining. In those final six minutes the Bantams .lost
momentum, and the Lord Jeffs managed to outscore Trinity by a 15-4 margin. Senior co-captain Wayne Sokolosky and Othar Burks led the Bantams in scoring with 20 and 27 points respectively .
