APRIL, 1977

Ware Appointed Development Director: Rees To Retire Early in March President lockwood announced the appointment of Constance E. Ware of West Hartford as director of development effective August 1, 1977. Mrs. Ware has been associate director of development since 1974 and will succeed Judson M . Rees who has reached mandatory retirement age. In announcing the appointment, President Lockwood remarked, "We are delighted that Mrs. Ware will serve as a senior officer of the College and be responsible for this most important operation. Mrs. Ware will be assuming

Ware her duties as director of development at a time when we expect Trinity's $12 million capital campaign will have reached a successful conclusion."

PROFESSOR August E. Sapega, chairman of the Engineering Department, inspects one of the earliest models of an internal combustion engine. Built in 1894 and bought by Trinity in 1898, the belt-driven gas engine is still operating and will be donated to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. at their request.

During this campaign which has reached $11.1 million of its goal Ware has been responsible for the major gift solicitation and has directed regional campaigns throughout the country. Ware joined the Trinity administration in 1964 and served as assistant to the director of development in 1970. Currently she is a member of the board of Hartford Architecture Conservancy, the Hartt Opera Theater Guild, where she served three terms as president, and a member of the board of the auxiliary of the Institute of living. Active in community affairs, she has served as vice president and board member .of the Hartford Symphony Auxiliary; vice president of the Coordinating Council for the Arts; member of the board, Friends of Hartford Ballet; member of the Task Force for Voluntary Action Center of the Greater Hartford Chamber of Commerce; member of the presidential search committee, Manhattanville College; member of the Scholarship Committee of the Connecticut Bank & Trust Co .; president of the Connecticut Manhattanville Club; and chairman of the individual subscribers section, United Way. Ware, a native New Yorker, is a graduate of Manhattanville College, Purchase, New York. She is married to Richard H. Ware and they reside with their three sons in West Hartford.

TRINITY IS NAMED A BICENTENNIAL COLLEGE by the American Revolution Bicentennial Commission of Connecticut. The official certificate and appropriate flags were presented April 4. Present for the ceremonies were (left to right) President Lockwood and, representing the student group responsible for the honor- Robert F. Phelps, Jr. '78, Michael L. Smirlock '78, Russell D. Yang '78, Leigh S. Breslau '78- and George W. Cyr, program coordinator of the Bicentennial Commission.

Legislative Interns Assist Lawmakers, Research Book The recent announcement that the General Electric Company will provide a research grant to partially fund a book on the Connecticut General Assembly is another indication of the growing influence of Trinity's legislative Internship Program. Many other colleges in the past have borrowed and adapted concepts from Trinity's program - among them in New England the University of Rhode Island, the University of Massachusetts, Smith College, and the University of New Hampshire. But so far as is known, none has received funds to further research projects conducted as part of the course. Work on the book began last July after the Trinity interns published the findings of another project dealing with "The Influence of the News Media on the Connecticut General Assembly." Director of the program, Dr. Clyde D. McKee, associate professor of political science, said that his students were concerned that the important work of the state legislature has relatively low visibility and is not understood by many students and the _ g~nml public. The plan for the book (funding arrangements are not complete as yet) is to have selected experts who are legislative staff members, legislators and "outside" critics write short chapters explaining their understanding of the structure, procedures and partie-

ular bills of the governing body. The target date for distribution is next fall. The legislative Internship Program at Trinity has been in existence for the past ten years. During this time, students have worked either full or part-time for various legislators in both political parties. The program is designed to be at least the equivalent of a full semester's work. As McKee defines it, "The purpose of the course is to provide an in-depth examination of the legislative process and its relation to the political forces influencing it." The program itself began almost by accident in 1967 when the State Minority Leader telephoned McKee with a plea for help. He needed research done on a number of upcoming measures and his budget precluded hiring additional staff. After some discussion an agreement was reached which, among other things, gave McKee veto路 power over assignments, and the first class was taught from the Minority leader's office with the politico in a front row seat. That happened to be a good year for relevant issues. Both the 18-year old vote and the clean water bills were about to move out of committee. (Continued on page 2)

Spring Career Interns Test Choices Working With Trinity Alumni About 30 students, mostly seniors,. spent a large part of their Spring vacation working. Not for them the beaches in Florida, the slopes of Vermont or fence-mending in the old hometown. They were participants in Trinity's first Spring Career Internship Program sponsored jointly by the Career Counseling Office and the Office of Alumni Relations. Their vacation days were spent observing and participating in the daily routine of their sponsors' jobs ranging from architecture and finance to law and journalism.

The main purpose of the new program is to provide the students with a face-to-face encounter with the career of his choice. It is hoped that these brief experiences will help establish a better basis for the fateful decision.

LEGISLATIVE (from page one) Since that time the course has been refined and many of the procedures have been adapted by other colleges. McKee, for example, carefully matches the legislator and his intern for compatibility and similar interests. It is the legislator's responsibility not only to provide challenging assignments, but also to help the intern analyze the issues involved and the forces at work. The program has now reached a point. of acceptability where the number of legislators available exceed the number of interns. In company with senators and representatives from other states, the Connecticut legislators are part-time, understaffed and have little research capability. Although student interhs assist their legislators by working with constituents, writing press releases, attending hearings and analyzing proposed legislation, the purpose of

The Career Counseling and Alumni Relations Offices are evaluating the program carefully together with the suggestions and appraisals of the sponsors and the interns for use in planning and refining the 1978 project. Sponsors for this year's program are below.

Sponsors of career interns this . Spring were chosen from participants in the Alumni/Parent Career Advisory Program. That program was begun in the Fall of 1975 when more than 900 alumni and parents agreed to discuss their own careers with Trinity students. At the same time, more than 路 100 volunteered to serve as student intern sponsors. In addition, several career "requests" which could not be met within the parent! alumni pool were matched by friends of students or alumni. This year interns worked in 路 the the program remains solidly academic. During the course the interns must write six comprehensive papers, attend bi-weekly seminars, attend lectures by visiting experts and faculty, as well as attend a three-day workshop before the course technically begins. In addition, each student maintains a detailed activity log with a daily compilation of his or her activity and an evaluation. Over and above each student's individual assignments is the annual course project which this year is the book on the Assembly. The book is planned for 13 chapters with chapter headings ranging from 'The State Legislature as an Evolving Institution" and "The Legislative Professionals" to "How the Connecticut Legislature Has Failed Its Cities." When fully funded and published, McKee thinks the book " should make a significant contribution to the body of literature now available on state legislatures throughout the United States."

Students Win Top Prizes Two Trinity alumni who graduated last Spring captured second and third places in the Percival Wood Clement Prize Contest. No first prize was awarded . The contest was established by the will of the late Percival Wood Clement , former governor of Vermont. Second prize of $750 was won by Dana M . Faulkner, an economics major from Hartford, and third prize of $440 was won by Karen A. Jeffers of Wilbraham, Massachuset'ts , who majored in political science. The prizes were awarded for the best thesis submitted on the topic of "Freedom of Expression and Prior Restraint : The Constitutional and Social Issues ." Students from 18 New England colleges and universities were invited to enter the annual contest. The entries were judged by professors from Harvard Law School, Trinity College (Political Science Professor Samuel Hendel) , and the University of Vermont.

Campaign Report

Gifts and pledges to the Campaign for Trinity Values, the College's long-term capital campaign, reached $11.1 million by the end of March. Less than a million dollars remains to be contributed in order to reach the $12 million campaign goal. With many volunteers working to complete the campaign, the College is hopeful that those who have not yet made a gift decision will do so now so that the goal might be achieved before June 30, the end of the fiscal year. Major emphasis of the capital campaign are increased endowment and an addition to the Library. In addition, the College each year during the capital campaign has continued its Annual Fund appeal, for gifts to support budgeted programs of the College each academic year. At the end of March, the 1976-1977 Annual Fund- which includes the Alumni Fund, the Parents Fund, the Friends of Trinity Fund and Business and Industry Associates - had reached $290,000 of the goal of $500,000. The Annual Fund traditionally concludes on June 30. Therefore, alumni, parents and friends of the College are urged to participate now so that both the capital campaign and the Annual Fund drive may be successfully completed by that date.

Annual Giving Program Chairmen Announced An alumnus of Yale University and another from Amherst College have been named to key chairmanships in Trinity's annual giving program. James H. Torrey, executive vice president and chief investment officer of Connecticut General Life Insurance Company, has been appointed national chairman of the Business & Industry Associates of Trinity College. James B. Lyon, a partner in the law firm of Murtha, Cullina, Richter and Pinney, has been named chairman of The Friends of Trinity Fund. Membership in the Business & Industry Associates is extended to those firms giving financial support to Trinity for the current year's academic program. According to Torrey, "In recent years, corporate gifts to Trinity for annual needs such as scholarships, library books, laboratory equipment and faculty support have averaged $60,000. These gifts have been over and above the support which business firms have given to Trinity's $12 million campaign for new capital funds. The College needs and wisely uses both kinds of support. " A graduate of Yale University, Torrey is active in community affairs. He is a corporator of the Connecticut Institute for the Blind, the Institute of Living, St. Francis Hospital, Mt. Sinai Hospital , Hartford Sem inary Foundation, and the Health Planning Council, Inc . He is a Director of Hartford Hospital, a Trustee of Kingswood-Oxford School, a member of the Board of Regents of the University of Hartford, and a member of the Economic Development Committee of the Greater Hartford Chamber of Commerce. Lyon, a leader in many community organizations, , will head up the (Continued next page)

national fund drive which annually obtains support for Trinity College from residents of this region and around the country. The $25,000 fund drive got under way in March and continues through June 30. "The Friends of Trinity Fund goal," Lyon said, "is part of an effort this year to raise a half-million dollars from alumni, parents, business firms and others to support Trinity College." Lyon, an Amherst alumnus, is chairman of the board of KingswoodOxford School, vice president of the Wadsworth Atheneum Board, and vice president of the Connecticut Bar Foundation. He is a trustee of Old Sturbridge Village, the Noah Webster Foundation and the Historical Society of West Hartford, Inc. , and served on West Hartford's Bicentennial Steering Committee.

Graduate Studies In Greater Hartford The Office of Graduate Studies reports that enrollment in graduate courses is slightly below the level of Spring 1976. A new development which may create heightened interest in graduate education in Hartford is the emerging Greater Hartford Consortium on Higher Education's plan to increase coordination of graduate studies among four institutions: The Hartford Graduate Center, St. Joseph _College, the University of Hartford, and Trinity. The purpose of increasing coordination is to improve services, to add to services, and to operate-more efficiently. It is estimated that the four institutions now offer instruction at the graduate _level to more than 3,000 members of the greater Hartford area annually. The Consortium's final report recommended , among other tnings, that the four institutions strive for more cooperation in coordinating existing programs and that they explore in detail the feasibility of joint graduate programs in new areas. Meanwhile, the Graduate Office has announced that the '77 /'78 Graduate Catalog i~ scheduled for April delivery . The Graduate Studies Summer Schedule this year offers 32 courses in 11 disciplines. Most classes meet three times a week from June 27 to August 5. The Trinity Summer Term Office has full details.

Trends In Financial Aid: The Federal/State Impact By John Taylor, Director of Financial Aid Today, the financial aid program at Trinity College, while it has changed in many respects, is just as vital to the overall strength and attractiveness of the College now as it was ten years ago. Last year almost one-third of all applicants for admission also applied for financial assistance. The total need among all admitted applicants approached a million and a half dollars, while those who actually enrolled were aided with over half a million dollars from a variety of sources. It is obvious from these figures that the financial aid program is essential in terms of maintaining our strong applicant pool and certainly a major budget item in the total economic picture of the College. When analyzing our aid program, it is an interesting exercise to see how it has changed in the last ten years. The following charts reveal similarities and differences when compared to what existed ten years ago. The first chart shows that even though the overall numbers have increased, many of the same ratios still apply. For example, the percentage of admissions candidates applying for aid is the same (32 percent); the percentage of those candidates offered admission is roughly the same (48 percent versus 44 percent); and our aid dollars stretched far enough to fund only 80 percent of the needy candidates both ten years ago and today. Where we do find some variance is with the yield rates (the percentages of students offered admission who eventually enroll in the College). Ten years ago 114 out of 199 aid awardees accepted for admission (57 percent) eventually enrolled. This compares with 122 out of 290 (42 percent) today. There was also a decline in the yield rate for those students who were determined to have "no-need" for financial aid funds; SO percent ten years ago to 33 percent today. This large variation is much more understandable when we realize that the total charges for a Trinity education have almost doubled (from $2850 to $5490) in the last ten years.

be $16,969. The total Collegecontrolled grant budget has just about tripled to meet this increased demand, and the sources of these funds have changed dramatically as exhibited by the following chart.

percent increase in scholarship funding from the State of Connecticut thanks to efforts on the part of the Governor and the State Legislature. On the other hand, I feel we have to be careful in the following areas. First

. In the past, 39 percent of the College-controlled grant budget was provided through the General Budget (those revenues which come principally from tuition payments), while 27 percent came from the Endowment and Gift Incomes respectively. Only 6 percent came from the Federal Government. Today 30 percent is provided through Endowment funds, 11.5 percent through Gift income and 33.5 percent from the General Budget. The remaining 25 percent comes from a massive increase in Federal aid and direct funding from the . State of Connecticut. This large infusion of Federal and State funds has changed the Financial Aid program qualitatively as well as quantitatively . Federal and State regulations make the awarding of dollars more complex requiring a larger office staff and more sophisticated accounting methods. For example, in order to spend the amount of College Work Study funds which we are presently receiving, it was necessary to devise a brand new, comprehensive student employment program last year. In spite of the administrative burdens which come with Federal and State dollars, it is obvious that our financial aid program would be in a downward spiral without their inclusion . The Trustees and Administration have granted a high priority to the support of the financial aid program', but even this generous support would be inadequate without outside assistance.

of all, it appears that as our admissions yield rate declines, we will be forced to 路extend more and more dollars to applicants. It is conceivable that a sudden unexpected increase in the yield rate could plunge us into a deficit spending situation. Secondly, I feel that we should constantly bear in mind the objective of the financial aid program. It should not be to "entice" those who could probably afford to pay, but rather enable Trinity College to achieve socio-econQmic diversity within its community; for it is only with the presence of a viable socialeconomic mix among its undergraduate population that Trinity can truly remain a dynamic and intellectually exciting learning community. Finally, I look forward to the day when our "need-no award" category is nonexistent. Our admissions process is blind to financial need, but our ability to fund all those who have need and would attend falls short. We must continue to work toward the day when a student's decision to attend Trinity College is not based on whether we can provide adequate financial support. In conclusion, in spite of the year-toyear basis of our outside Federal and State support, I am guardedly optimistic about the future . In the last analysis the overriding basis of our financial aid program is people and not dollars. The amount of dollars will fluctuate over time and with economic conditions, but as long as those served by the program, and all of those who indirectly support the program (such as our alumni donors) have confidence in the integrity of the program, it will continue to be a growing, vital part of the institution.

This dramatic increase in costs has had its effect on how the financial aid tab is picked up . Ten years ago, the average College grant award was $1 ,312 and the average family income for our aid recipients was $9,953. Ten years later we find the average grant to be $3,135, and the average income to

Our future does look bright in this respect, however, as we anticipate a 124 percent increase in Federal Funds for next year (providing all of the campusbased Federal Aid programs are continued and fully funded by the current administration in Washington) . Along the same line we also anticipate a 40

Freshman Solves Case Of The "Lost" Telescope It might be said that in some respects Trinity has been reaching for the sky almost from the beginning. At least interest' in the sky, if not perfervid, has run a quiet undercurrent on the academic scene. It all began at commencement in 1836 when an enterprising Mr. A. Holcomb from Southwick, Massachusetts, invited the faculty to peer at the heavens through a telescope he had made. The professors duly lined up and, after viewing Saturn's rings and assorted star clusters, persuaded the Trustees to invest in one of Mr. Holcomb's • products and the following year a reflecting telescope with a 10-inch mirror and a 14-foot focal length was delivered and installed. Astronomy, however, remained low-key on the campus for the next 40 years with only a single course in elementary astronomy offered during the junior year. Then, in the Fall of 1882 a contingent of distinguished astronomers from Germany arrived at Trinity and on the site now occupied by the Mather Campus Center, set up several prefabricated buildings and unpacked 33 crates weighing over four tons. In the crates were telescopes and related hardware to be used to observe the Transit of Venus scheduled for December 6, 1882. The College received a tremendous amount of publicity from this event, the general assumption being that Trinity was chosen because of its astronomical preeminence. The fact was that the Germans tarried at Trinity simply because it was on a· hill and the hill was precisely located along the path of visibility of the Transit of Venus. The Board of Fellows, possibly embarrassed, called for the establishment of an astronomy department forthwith and the Trustees concurred to the tune of $2,500 to build and equip a small observatory about 100 feet south of the end of Seabury Hall. It was named the St. John Observatory, in honor of the family whose prior gift of several telescopes had stipulated that an observatory would be erected. Professor Flavel S. Luther became Department Chairman of Mathematics and Astronomy (and served as president from 1904 to 1919) and the observatory remained in active use for more than three decades. A persistent man, Luther kept trying to upgrade the observatory. His requests · to the Trustees for $2,000 were regularly denied during the 1880's and early 1890's, but in 1895 he was given the "go" sign. About six months later his major acquisition arrived at a cost of $1,600, leaving only $400 for other equipment. Luther had bought a permanent, six and one-half inch refracting telescope, equatorially mounted, with a clock drive and mount. The lens was made by Brashear and the scope itself by Warner and Swasey, who have since gone on to other things. In 1936 the observatory was torn down. The astronomy department atrophied. Some equipment was stolen, broken, misplaced, and lost. Not quite all of it, however. Last fall, Dr. Brooke Gregory, assistant physics professor, in his course on observational astronomy mentioned as a possible project the reassembly of the Warner and Swasey

scope. Freshman Robert P. Nero of West Hartford accepted the challenge and the treasure hunt was on. Parts emerged from hiding places in the boiler room, under a stairwell, in a cubbyhole in McCook, the lens from a physics lab storeroom, and some never were found . When key parts refused to surface, Nero improvised, assisted by physics technician Charles Paul. The mount posed a major problem, for example. A telescope is by nature a top heavy instrument and the mount must be solid and stable. The original cast iron base was gone so Nero scavenged, with their blessing, an unused machine base from the Engineering Department and drilled new holes for the heavy bolt fittings.

They are planning to look into the possibility of substituting an electric motor which should be less expensive. So far, their expenses have not been sky high. The total outlay has amounted to $6 for four 5-inch bolts and nuts. The final step will be to find a home for the telescope. The scopes currently in use on campus are portable. The students carry them across the roof of Elton Dormitory where they are fastened to pipelike suppor"ts. The Warner and Swasey piece, however, is definitely not portable. With its heavy base mount it probably weighs close to 400 pounds. When the Chemistry Building was constructed, its tower was especially reinforced to accommodate an observatory but for some reason this never came into being. Gregory thinks that a possible reason may be that with urban growth during this century the Hartford night sky has become rather light for viewing, especially at horizon levels. Nonetheless, Nero has his eye on the tower.

The editors thank Robert Nero for perm1sszon to use historical data contained in his research paper "The St. John Observatory. "

CAMPUS NOTES Dr. ROBERT LINDSAY, professor of physics, Dr. RALPH 0. MOYER, JR., associate professor of chemistry, JEFFERY S. THOMPSON '74 and DOUGLAS A. KUHN '75 have published "Preparation, Structure, and Properties of Ytterbium Ruthenium Hydride" in the December 1976 issue of Inorganic Chemistry. EVEN STANDING on a stool, Robert Nero '80 is dwarfed by the 14-foot antique telescope of "superlative" quality he is reassembling on campus. Even more of a problem was the clockwork drive mechanism, the only remaining missing part save for a few incidentals . Without a drive mechanism a star cannot be tracked. Nero has written to J. T. Bailey, president of Warner and Swasey and has had notable success. The company's senior engineer has exhumed detailed drawings (circa 1895) of the clockwork of a telescope similar to Trinity's and they are now being studied by Nero and Gregory. Indications are that the dimensions match those of the Trinity instrument. How to find such a part, even knowing that somewhere one must still be operable, remains a problem. Now that Nero has finished scraping, degreasing, sanding and oiling, the assembled telescope is an impressive piece of equipment. Says Gregory, "The mechanical design · is superlative, definitely better than any other we have." Nero adds, "All the parts are cast iron, sheet iron, solid brass or brass plated. Telescopes manufactured today are usually fiberglass and steel." At this point Gregory and Nero have no idea how much it could cost to rebuild the clockwork mechanism.

A Memorandum On The Budget "The choices among worthy claims upon the budget becomes harder each year'' By President Lockwood

BACKGROUND: To accompany a copy of the budget for 1977-1978 I have prepared this analysis of salient points. The budget is in balance. That is important, but equally important is seeing it as a statement of priorities. Over fifty percent of the budget goes toward compensation of personnel. For instance, in the current 1976-1977 budget 55.9% of operating expenses, or $6,359,780, is for salaries and related benefits . We have a continuing commitment to staff and we have been grateful that our finances have permitted annual increases. For example, a 6% increase in personnel costs equals $381,586, or $236 in additional fees per student. Financial aid is the second largest category of expenditures and amounts to 9.3% of this year's budget. Utilities total $828,050, or 7.3% of the 1976-1977 budget. Fortunately through our conservation efforts we have held the impact of cold weather and rising oil prices (26% since July) to controllable dimensions . If we lump other fixed costs together, we have at least 13.5% of the balance. That leaves only 14% of the budget as truly variable unless we make substantial shifts in the major items already identified . Beyond these constraints we all know that the rate of inflation influences expenses all the way from paper to construction . Behavior in the stock market affects our yield, and short-term interest rates can mean many thousands of dollars one way or other. These are the imponderables against which we have to maintain some

hedge in the form of a contingency item. REVENUES: When we review revenues, we must recognize certain limits in our ability to increase the funds available. Among Educational and General revenues one source, tuition income, produces nearly two-thirds of the total. The next largest item is endowment income, projected as $1,875,000, or 18.4%, in 1977-1978. That represents a 12% increase in two years . New funds and careful management have greatly improved our yield. The annual fund produces approximately another $500,000 . In addition, we have some carryover from the Income Stabilization Account; but !here are few areas in which we ~an anticipate any substantial increases in revenues. Iii Auxiliary Enterprises we have a balance of income and expenses in the dining hall; we have a deficit as normally expected in the dormitory account; and we seek a balance in the operation of the student center, as I shall explain later . What is striking is that to produce a 1% shift in the total budget of $12,500,000 requires $125,000, or a 7% increase in endowment yield. In the absence of any other sources, the only significant way to improve revenues to cover the rise in expenditures is through a tuition hike. Every $100 increase there equals $160,000 in revenues. This is an ineluctable fact of life. Therefore, to cover inflation, appropriate salary increases, particularly among the faculty, and to maintain the pace in financial aid to students, we have been obliged to raise the tuition by $350, of which $50 is designed to cover the main contingency of rising fuel costs. For exam-

pie, this year's costs for oil alone rose $80,000, or $50 per student . We also concluded that we should bring the student center into balance and thus discontinue using tuition money to offset that deficit. Hence, the general fee has been increased by $30 per student. Similarly, to keep the dining hall in balance, in the face of rising food and labor costs, we have been forced to increase the board fee by $50 for the year . These are, I admit, unattractive prospects, but no non-profit institution has found a way around them. Compared to other colleges and universities in this area, the increases are less than the majority. That offers little solace, but it does assure parents and students that we continue to exercise careful scrutiny over accounts and to practice cost-consciousness. EXPENDITURES: That scrutiny is best seen by the fact that we removed $494,000 from the requests submitted in the late fall . Those reductions have come from almost every account although the major items affected are renovations and repairs. Under Educational and General, the largest budget is properly that for instruction: $3,791,615, a 9% increase over this year. We are trying to close the gap on faculty salaries between Trinity and comparable colleges as well as recognize merit. The next largest item is the operation and maintenance of the physical plant (outside the dormitories). I am pleased that we have been able to hold the percentage rise to 7% and to reverse the trend which had suggested that this item would be the fastest growing element among our expenditures. Financial aid, which represents 10.9% in our budget, will rise by 8% . Unhappily neither

federal aid nor gifts have offset this increase, and the College is obliged to contribute $429,400 from its own funds so as to assure sufficient funds to help those in need. The library will receive an 8% increase in total. However, book and periodical purchases combined will increase 15% over 1976-1977. Yet in real terms, acquisitions will just about equal this year's expenditures. We cannot be more generous and simultaneously anticipate the added cost of an addition coming on line the following year. As for administrative costs, the increase will be $178,000, a 9% increase attributable in large part to additional services and personnel costs. We hope from the management study now under way that we shall find opportunities to hold down these expenses more rigorously in the future. I should add that, as a percentage of the total E & G budget, all administrative accounts have remained constant. The remainder of the accounts either remain constant or rise by only 6%. Overall the vexing problem remains: how to sustain the quality of the College while holding down cost increases . One hope has been that our present capital campaign would help to offset rising costs. Over time that will certainly have its impact, but even $10,000,000 of new endowment (which we predict will be available by 1982) will produce on the average only $550,000 more income. But this coming year's proposed budget rises by over $1,000,000. Another hope has been to achieve consolidations in our operations wherever possible, but the demand for services continues to rise, the physical plant grows older, and inflation limits one's prospects. The choices among worthy claims upon the budget becomes harder each year . Since we think it in the best interest to maintain both the student body and faculty constant in size, .....;e have few options . We can only pledge to examine carefully yet again every category of expense.

"A.I.E.S.E.C." Who?

Class Notes

By Mary Ellen Breault '77 That "A.I.E.S.E.C. is one of the best kept secrets" is joked about by members of that organization, but it is all too often true. At Trinity College, the members of A.I.E.S.E.C., which is the French acronym for the International Association of Students in Economics and Management, are trying to change this. Open to all students, Trinity's local chapter, which has been active for ten years, has grown to 50 members. As a totally student-run, non-profit organization, A.I.E.S.E.C. has established a reciprocal job exchange program through which it fosters international cooperation as well as provide important practical experience to supplement theoretical knowledge for students in the 55 participating countries. Locally, Trinity members seek to raise internships for foreign students in area businesses so that they in turn can apply for internships in the countries of their choice. This past year Trinity has hosted seven interns from France, Germany, Hong Kong and Poland, arranging their housing and planning weekend activities. Presently three interns are in Hartford. Amaury de Menthiere, a French intern, is working at G. Fox & Co.; Jacques Merran, also from France, is at Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Co.; and Jozef Kaluzynski of Poland is at Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection & Insurance Co. Last summer eleven Trinity students were matched to foreign internships in Greece, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and Yugoslavia, and this year fourteen students have applied. Students are matched to jobs by computer at an International Congress which will be held in Athens this year. Lecture series, student-businessmen lunches and career symposiums are a few of the other activities that A.I.E.S.E.C.-Trinity has participated in to foster communication between students and businessmen. The Trinity chapter is also active at the national level. Mark Kupferberg '77, served as Advisory Councillor for the National Committee this past year. In cooperation with Brian McKenzie of Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Co ., A.I.E.S .E.C.-Trinity produced a video tape which is being used to train members by U.S. local committees. Local members also have the opportunity to meet students from other U.S. committees and interns from all over the world at the various conterences held throughout the year. Trinity hosted a meeting for all local committee presidents last fall and sent five members to the Northeast regional conference held in Boston. During the Christmas break, eight Trinity students attended the national convention in Den~r. The spring regional conference will be held in Georgetown (Washington, D.C.) and will give new and old members a chance to learn more about A.I.E.S.E.C. and to exchange ideas. Mary Ellen Breault is a senior from Willimantic, Connecticut, who is learning about business and administration first-hand. For several years she worked with the Trinity News Bureau. This year slf!-·'1:; is employed by the Actuarial Department of Connecticut General Life Insurance Company.

I hope you all got a copy of the January 1977 issue of Connecticut which had a fine portrait of James E. English on the cover, heralded as Citizen of the Year. As you may know, he is the son of our late departed , The Rev. JIM ENGLISH, and he may well be our 1916 Class baby or close to it anyway . How sad that Jim Sr. could not have had just a few months longer and Jim Jr.'s mother also, to · witness this public recognition of his career. Jim Jr. is president of the Connecticut Bank and Trust Company and also chairman. Jim Jr. has now accepted a posi tion at Trinity as financial advisor and planner and will perhaps teach a course or two in banking and the finance field. That was a great report from President Lockwood about the status of the Campaign for Trinity Values. I note we have a way to go this year to attain the goal, so let's try to do this year what some of us could not do last year. Let's all show in May at the Imm ortals Dinner.

I have suggested in this column on a number of previous occasions that there remain many of our classmates that we have not hearq from in some time, many for all 10 years. Because I also know that many of you look for items here relating to your own friends whom you haven't heard from in some time, I have come up with another idea. When you send in notes about yourself, direct them to my attention and include with your notes, the names of one or two classmates whom you would like to know about. I will then make it a point to try and be in touch with those people specifically and see if we can't find out what they are doing. We did hear from three of you in the past month or so .

REUNION CHARLIE KURZ was in Los Angeles recently on business and we had a chance to get together. He indicated that our Class received a special award from the Alumni Association for having the highest participation in the A lumni Fund for classes graduated during the previous 10 years. Congratulations to us. In this our lOth year reunion, let's make it the best success of all by once again having the highest percentage. Speaking of the lOth reunion, Charlie has informed me that it has been scheduled for the weekend of October 8, the Williams game. The College has decided to experiment this year by having it earlier inasmuch as there is already a large crowd for the Wesleyan game. Personally, I think it is a better time because it is the height of the fall season. It is warmer and for those warmblooded souls like myself in Southern California, this is a more pleasant time of year. In addition , Charlie spoke of the Class gift and what should be scheduled for reunion weekend . His suggestion for a Class gift would be a contribution to a memorial scholarship fund for RICHARD VOSSLER, DON OVERBECK and PETER HENDERSON . Any other suggestions or comments? Also he raised the question as to what would be the best activity for the class to have for our reunion , and when and where . A questionnaire should be sent to you shortly asking fo r your recommendations. Back in October I received a long letter from JEFF FOX . For two years, Jeff was located in San Francisco as director of marketing for Pillsbury's wine division , traveling frequently to Los Angeles. By contrast, I was located ' in Los Angeles and frequently traveling to San Francisco. Nevertheless, we never made it together. Finally , as Jeff pointed out in his letter, he was "prompted by my last column" to write. Now that Jeff has moved back to Connecticut, he has renewed some old associations, Trinity being one. He intends to get a bit more involved in alumni activities, including the Trinity Club of Hartford, etc. TOM McCONNELL lives close to his new home (Sim.sbury, the next town over from Avon ). They've missed each other a few times but by the time you read this will have spilled a few drops together. Jeff is now corporation director of new product planning for Loctite Corporation , Newington, Connecticut. He says it is a great company with a marvelous future, and although it isn' t wine, it is an extremely interesting and challenging opportunity. His wife, Marlene, is part owner of The Quilt Patch, a company that specializes in antique quilts: bed quilts, coverlets, doll quilts , tablecloths, pillows, etc. Jeff says it gives her a break

from the two kids, three dogs, five fish and a canary. Now that Rosey (WILL ROSENBAUM) is a big time Salem, Massachusetts vet, he thinks they'll have to get him down to take care of their zoo. Jeff has seen CHRIS DOYLE, who is corporation counsel for W. R. Grace Company in New York City, several times. He says the last bash at the Fox house was at our five-year reunion with TED RUCKERT, GEORGE DAVIS, ROSEY, KESSLER, DOYLE, GOOSE McCONNELL, DAVE GORDON (and wives) and some other balkies and he will do it again for our Tenth . Looking forward to seeing you at Reunion , Jeff. Thanks for the letter and best wishes in your new position . News comes from all sources. Faithful reader and correspondent, Mrs. Elinor Daly, wrote to tell us of the latest ventures of her son, KEVIN DALY. Last summer he played Lt. Joseph Cable in South Pacific at the Evening Dinner Theatre in Elmsford, New York. During the fall and early winter, he played at various Chateau-de-villes in the New England area . In this case, the musical was Oklahoma and his part was Will Parker. If I ever have advance knowledge of his whereabouts, I promise to let you know so that you can have the pleasure of enjoying his outstanding talents. Also moving back to the Trinity area is CHARLIE PERRIN . Up until recently, he was a group product manager for ChesebroughPond's, Inc., Rochester, New York. He, his wife and two sons, Jeffrey and David, have moved to Ridgefield , Connecticut where Charlie is now working at the Chesebrough-Pond's headquarters in Greenwich . The JIM McCULLOCHS had their second child, Maggie, last fall. Jim finished his Air Force service last July and is practicing family medicine with Northcare, a health maintenance organization in Evanston, Illinois . The College received news from Potter, Anderson and Corroon in Wilmington, Delaware that DAVID ANDERSON has recently become a member of their firm . In addition , The Reverend EDWARD PREVOST wrote to say that it was a joy to preside at brother Bill's ('71) wedding to Beth Martin last Christmas. Lastly, we received a nice long letter from NICK COT AKIS all the way from Athens, Greece. Congratulations are in order to the longtime bachelor who will be married in June. On the professional side, Nick works for a large shipping concern as a member of the management team operating 10 cargo ships. In addition, he runs a travel bureau which provides him with a lot of challenge and interest. On the fun side, Nick indicated that he continues to pursue his hobby of mountain climbing and has become an expert rock climber and mountain hiker. If any climbers are interested, Nick said he would be happy to help them climb one of the 30 Greek peaks over 6000 feet high . Currently Nick is preparing for the Summer of 1978 when he plans to climb Mont Blanc, Europe's highest peak . If you are interested, contact Nick at s;; Xenostratous Street , Athens 140, Greece. Finally, Nick asked about the plans for this year's reunion . Unless we have somebody coming from Asia or the Far East, Nick will certainly get the award for coming the farthest distance to reunion. Please keep the cards and letters coming in and respond to the questionnaire on this year's reunion when it comes to your home.

TRINITY SPORTS ROUNDUP Women's Squash Team Second Nationally

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL The women's basketball squad posted a 6-4 record in its second varsity season. The female cagers opened the season with successive victories over M.I.T. and Dartmouth. The win streak ended when Trinity played Eastern Connecticut State College, a tough and wellcoached unit which overwhelmed the Bantam women by 40 points. Wins over Sacred Heart and Connecticut College and close losses to Vassar and UHartford left the Trinity record at 4-3 with big games remaining against Wesleyan, Yale, and Williams. The women were forced to play those three games without the services of high-scoring captain Nancy McDermott who had a \<nee injury. Freshman forward Cindy Higgins picked up the scoring slack and led the Bantams to wins over Wesleyan and Williams despite a loss to Yale.

HOCKEY

{ Bostwick

Bell

The most successful team in the 197t>-77 winter sports season was the women's varsity squash team. Sporting a 9-1 record, Coach Jane Millspaugh's team placed second in the National Intercollegiate Tournament staged on February 25-26 at the University of Pennsylvania. This fine showing was made possible by the fact that Trinity placed three women among the top eleven individuals in the nation. Sophomore Cackie Bostwick, top player for the Bantams, is ranked second in the nation, having lost only to Ramsay of Penn State in the finals of the tournament. Bostwick won all ten of her individual matches during the season. Marion DeWitt '79, who played the number

two position on the Trinity ladder, came out of the tournament ranked seventh. Senior captain Sophie Bell shared the number ten ranking with a Radcliffe player. Bell closed out her fine squash career at Trinity with an incredible season. Not only did she win all ten of her individual matches, but she won each one by a shutout score of 3-0; she did not lose a single game all year. The Trinity team nemesis was the team from Yale which edged out the Bantam women by a mere one-half point for the National team championship. The rivalry between these two top teams began early in the season at the Howe Cup Tournament played at Yale. The host team

came away with the trophy , but Trinity was a close second. On February 22, Yale visited Trinity for a dual match which seemed to be a preview of the national championship competition. A large and boisterous home crowd witnessed some superb competition, but their support was not enough to boost the Trinity efforts, as Yale took a 4-3 decision to hand the home team its only loss of the season . The match was as close as it could have possibly been. The final outcome rested on the last match to be completed, and Yale won the fifth game of that best-of-five match in overtime, 17-15.

MEN'S SQUASH

FENCING

The men's varsity squash team had a fine season, producing a 12-5 record, but that success does not match the expectations of the team after last year's 16-0 season . The varsity racqueteers under Coach Roy Oath put in a strong showing at the National Intercollegiate Tournament at Navy on Marcil 46. Despite their regular season letdown, the Bantams matched the tournament success of last year's team, coming away from the competition ranked fifth in the nation. It was truly a team effort as no Trinity player earned individual recognition. Senior tri-captain Blair Heppe had an outstanding 17-0 individual record to lead the team . Other consistent performers during the season were sophomores Craig Asche (15-2), Andy Storch (14-3) and Charlie Wilson (14-3). There were three seniors on this year's varsity, tri-captains Heppe, Carl Torrey, and Will Ferguson, and their positions will probably be filled n~xt year by players up from the junior varsity squad. This situation does not worry Coaches Oath and Sutherland however, because the JV team won 11 of its 14 matches this year.

The Trinity fencing team had quite a successful season in 197{>-77. An 8-2 record, the finest in over ten years, was followed by a great performance in the New England Intercollegiate Fencing Tournament, with the Bantam fencers taking second place behind M.I.T. in the final standings.

The varsity basketball team proved to be the biggest disappointment to the Trinity winter sports program . The Bantam hoopsters closed their season with a 12-game losing streak to finish with a 4-16 record, quite a turnaround from the fine 15-6 season in 1975-76. Trinity played seven of its first eight games at home, and the record stood at a respectable 4-4 . Wins over M.I.T. (60-47), Central Conn. (10393), Coast Guard (55-49), and Williams (77-73 in overtime) were, however, to stand as the only Bantam victories in the long season. The Central game, consolation game of the Trinity-UHartford Invitational, was the finest effort of the year for Coach Robie Shults' team . Junior Artie Blake scored a season high 28 points to lead the fast moving Trinity attack; unfortunately, the offensive attack was not too potent during the remainder of the season, with Trinity averaging 67.6 points per game. The Bantams also surprised a lot of people by defeating a strong Williams College team in overtime. Trinity played a good team game in sticking with the Ephmen throughout the game, pulling out the victory by outscoring Williams 95 in the overtime period. Junior guard Larry Wells scored a career high 23 points to pace the Bantams. The 12-game losing streak included two close losses to rival Wesleyan and an overtime loss to Queens College. Coast Guard also overwhelmed the discouraged Trinity hoopsters, beating them by 15 points, 67-52, to avenge the early season loss. The season ended with the traditional game with cross-town rival University of Hartford. That game is usually emotion packed and quite exciting, but the Banis were not strong enough to stay with the Hawks, dropping a 97-75 decision to the home team. That final game marked the end of a 13-year career as varsity head coach for Robie Shults; his composite record for those years was 128-138. Shults will continue to serve as coach of varsity soccer and baseball, positions which he presently holds. Bill Harman, Graduate Assistant in Physical Education, will serve as head coach next season; he has been a varsity assistant for the past two seasons. Artie Blake led the Trinity scoring parade with a 15.0 scoring average. Junior center Brent Cawelti scored 12.4 points per game, and led the team in rebounding, collecting an average of 10.5 caroms per game. Cawelti scored 107 of 164 field goal attempts for a percentage of .652, good

WRESTLING The Trinity grapplers won their last three matches to close out the 197t>-77 season with a 38 slate. Head Coach Bob Stroh was pleased with the way his young team came on at the end of the second season of Trinity varsity wrestling. Five Bantam matmen participated in the New England Tournament, but only one, senior cocaptain Dave Coratti, found success. Coratti placed sixth in the 177-pound class. He was named as Trinity's Outstanding Wrestler for the second consecutive year. Trinity fared well at the New England Junior Varsity Wrestling competition. Freshmen Dave Brooks (3rd, 190 pound), Helmut Bittlingmayer (3rd, 177 pound), and John Danaher (4th, heavyweight) brought home medals for the Bantams.

In only its third varsity season, the Trinity hockey team had its best year with a 12-10 overall record . The Bantam skaters certainly made quite an improvement in one year, having had a 5-14-1 record in 1975-76. Playing as a member of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Division III hockey conference, Trinity sported a 10-4 record in conference games. That mark earned the Bantams a berth in the Division III Tournament, which they hosted at their home rink, the Glastonbury Arena, on March 4-5. Trinity played its best hockey in the final week of the regular season, and Coach John Dunham felt his team was well prepared for the postseason play. The only major injury problem was freshman wing Rick Margenot who .missed the end of the season with a knee injury. The Bantams played the number one seed Worcester (MA) State College in the opening round, and, despite a valiant comeback effort by Trinity, the eventual tournament champions put an end to the Bantam season with a 7-5 victory. A crowd of Trinity supporters 700 strong had little to cheer about as Worcester built a S-0 lead by the midway point of the game. But then the host crowd and team came to life, each boosting the other upward, as Trinity scored three goals in the final ten minutes of the second period to bring the score 'to S-3 in Worcester's favor with 20 minutes to play. The comeback continued as the Bants cut the deficit to one goal on two occasions (S-4 and t>-5) in the third period. Worcester was strong enough to hold on, and an open net goal in the final minute iced the victory for the Lancers. The partisan crowd, appreciative of the fine play and the courageous Trinity effort, gave the Bantam team a two-minute standing ovation after the game. It was a memorable ending to a fine season of hockey. Only three players, goalie Frank Judson, center Sandy Weedon, and defenseman Duffy Shea, will be lost to graduation, so Coach Dunham feels his team has a good chance for continued success next season . Leading the returning players will be Tom Lenahan, who served as team co-captain this year as a junior. Lenahan led the team in scoring with 26 goals and 19 assists for 45 points. This total is the most ever for a Trinity hockey player. Sophomore George Brickley was second in scoring with 21 goals and 19 assists for 40 points. Freshman Dana Barnard anchored the Bantam defensive corps; he should be a solid fixture there for the next few years. For their efforts, Lenahan and Barnard were named to the ECAC Division III All-Star teams. ln voting by all division coaches, Lenahan was listed as a first-team forward , while Barnard earned recognition as a second-team defenseman .

SWIMMING The men's varsity swimming team fell short of its preseason expectations, winning only two meets and dropping eight. It was more the high level of competition than lack of individual talent which was responsible for the losing season . In fact, Trinity had some quality talent this season as six school records were broken. New individual record holders are Frank Wobst '80 (100 breaststroke), Kent Reilly '79 (1000 freestyle), Scott MacDonald '78 (400 individual medley), Jim Bradt '77 (200 breaststroke), and Dave Teichmann '77 (200 individual medley). In addition, Trinity scored its first points in the New England Championships in nearly a decade, capturing eleventh place in the 800-yard freestyle relay. The team of Teichmann, MacDonald, Reilly , and Mike Hinton '80 covered the distance in 7:36.5, breaking the Trinity record by over 20 seconds. The women's swim team , in its second season in existence as a club spert, finished with a 2-5 record, but set 14 of 15 school records in the process. Denise Jones '80 captured a sixth place
