REPORT ON THE NATIONAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION This past year has been an active one for the Executive Committee of the National Alumni Association. Major accomplishments during the year can be highlighted as follows: Working with Director of Alumni and College Relations Jerry Hansen, the Committee is putting the finishing touches on a handbook covering the organization of alumni clubs. This handbook, to be published in the fall of this year, will give instructions on how to set up an alumni club, in· cluding by-laws and the types of activities an alumni club should sponsor. The overall objective is to help strengthen alumni contact with Trinity. We have spent considerable time studying minority affairs at Trinity covering a broad spec· trum of issues, and working with President Lock· wood on the appointment of qualified minorities to the Board of Trustees. We are also studying ways to improve relations with minority alumni and minority undergraduate life at Trinity. The Committee, working with the Career Counseling Office, will be setting up career counseling weekends commencing in the fall of 1979. Alumni will be invited back to speak to undergraduates on specific careers.

Alumni reunions have been studied again, and the Committee voted to study the possibility of return· ing to a spring reunion in 1981. A sampling will be made of alumni as to the types of activities to be included in a spring reunion weekend. Alumni involvement as part of the Admissions Support Program is being strengthened and expanded. The purpose of this program is to recruit qualified candidates for admission to Trinity. Alumni can play a very important role in this ac· tivity under the direction of the Admissions Office. The Committee has spent considerable time reviewing the public relations area, as evidenced by the improvement in the Trinity Reporter over this past year. We are continuing to study ways to improve the Trinity image on a nationwide basis. The Committee has gone on record with the College in requesting the establishment of an alumni house as a focal point where returning alumni may have meetings, special events, and also obtain in· formation. We encourage all alumni to contact the Executive Committee members with any issues deemed perti· nent to Trinity. Your support, advice and recommendations will be appreciated. George P. Lynch, Jr. President

Along the Walk FACULTY RESEARCH GRANTS AWARDED

2

Grants totalling $35,000 have been awarded to ten members of the faculty. This is the largest amount ever given by Trin ity to its facu lty for research in a single year. Dr. Milla Riggio, assistant professor of English, was awarded a Sabbatical Leave Extension of $7,000 to study "The Fami ly of God: Correspondences Between the Fami ly, the State and the Kingdom of God in Medieva l Drama." Individual Research Grants of $4,000 were awarded to: Dr. Andrea Bianchini, Dr. Donald Galbraith, Dr. Karl Haberlandt, Dr. Helen Lang, 路 and Dr. Ralph Moyer. Bianchini, associate professor of modern languages, will study the 19th-century novel. Galbraith, professor of biology, will use the grant to support h is studies concerning the role of extracellular materials in mediating the inductive interactions which lead to differentiation and morphogenesis of embryonic tissues. Haberlandt, associate professor of psychology, will pursue research on comprehension and recall of simple stories. Lang, assistant professor of philosophy, will be involved in cross-disciplinary studies of the development of thought experiments in the Middle Ages and t heir relation to scientific method. Moyer, associate professor of chem istry, will work in the preparation of new organic compounds and study of the structure of those new compounds. Junior Faculty Research Grants of $2,000 went to: Dr. David Ah lgren, Dr. Mardges Bacon, Dr. James Beaver, and Dr. D iane Zannoni. Ahlgren, assistant professor of engineering, will research the theoretical limits of performance of communications equ ipment. Bacon, assistant professor of fine arts, will study 19th-century commercial architecture, conducting much of her researc h in London. Beaver, assistant professor of economics, will study Swedish monetary policy and Sweden's commercial banking system, conducting his research in Stockho lm. Zannoni, assistant professor of economics, will study the relationship

between ph ilosopher John Rawls' principle of justice and the economic principle of marginal productivity.

BALANCED BUDGET TOPS $15 MILLION For the tenth consecutive year, the College's budget is in balance, but "the baleful effects of inflation" continue to affect costs in all areas, according to James F. English, Jr., vice president for finance and planning. The adopted 1979-80 budget stands at approximately $ 15.1 million, compared with sligh tly over $13.8 million for the past year, and reflects observance of the Carter Administr..:tion's voluntary guidelines on both wages and prices. The total student term bill is being increased by 7.5 percent (from $6,280 to $6,750). Tu ition will rise by $300 (from $4,300 to $4,600), which is less than the two previous years, when tuition increased by $350. Room rent will rise by $100 (from $880 to $989), and board by $70 (from $920 to $990). The general fee of $180 remains unchanged. "Our total increase appears to fall towards the bottom of the range reported by our sister institutions and leaves us in a relatively competitive position among admittedly high priced private colleges," English said. The income side of the budget assumes only a minor increase in the undergraduate student body from the equivalent of 1645 full-time students to 1650. This increase, together with the higher tuition, results in a 7.5 percent increase in budgeted revenue from tuition and fees.

The 1979-80 budget also reflects a 7.5 percent increase in endowment income, and an increase by $114,000, or 18.5 percent, in gift income, principally from the annual alumni fund. Total educational and general revenues are projected to rise by 9. 1 percent, compared with 11.1 percent in the current budget year, reflecting efforts to "slow down the almost inexorable expansion in operating budgets which has characterized all institutions like ours in recent years," according to English. In the educational and general expenses category, instruction is the major item and will rise by 8. 7 percent. Library expenses are budgeted to increase 8.9 percent, reflecting the first fu ll year's cost of operating the new library addition, and the rapidly rising prices of books and periodicals. Other categories of educational and general expenses have felt the impact of largely non-controllable increases. Genera l institutional expenses are budgeted to rise 13.5 percent to cover such items as insurance costs, security expenses, and debt service. The cost of operating the educational plant will also register a large increase of 9.9 percent. Total student aid is scheduled to increase by 8.0 percent. "Happily, the College has succeeded thus far in the task of maintaining a sound financia l condition," English , said. "But the task is becoming increasingly difficult, and it will continue to require the constructive cooperation that all segments of the community have given in the past," he concluded.

SCOTT COLLECTION DONATED TO LIBRARY An extensive collection of the letters, manuscripts and first editions of the Scottish poet and novelist, Sir Walter Scott, has been given to the Trinity Library by Professor and Mrs. Norton Downs. The collection, acquired over fortyfive years of scholarship, is the single most important gift to the library in recent years, and one of the major Scott holdings in the United States, according to Ralph S. Emerick, col-


Excitement ran high at the Cesare Barbieri Center, Trinity's campus in Rome, when Pope John Paul II made an un路 precedented visit to the school last semester. Many of the 47 undergraduates studying there had a chance to speak with the Pontiff, who toured the facilities for more than 25 minutes before leaving to celebrate an Ash Wednesday Mass at a nearby church on the Aventine Hill. To the immediate left of the Pope is Dr. Michael Campo, professor of modern languages, the founder and director of the Barbieri Center.

lege librarian. "This acquisition," Emerick said, "establishes Trinity as a center for Scott research equal to institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the New York Public Library." Downs, professor of medieval history, began his collection of Scott papers while gathering background material for a historical novel. He credits the extent and quality of the collection to choosing his subject early and remaining faithful to it throughout his career. Included in the materials are some thirty manuscripts and seventy letters, many of which are unpublished, along with first editions of all the Scott novels. Commenting on the gift, President

Lockwood said, "We are proud, indeed, of Norton Downs' persistent skill as a collector and are delighted to be the beneficiary of his generosity. The Scott Collection will provide invaluable primary source material to students and scholars of the Romantic Period." The new acquisitions will be housed in the library's Sir Walter Scott Medieval Room, which is scheduled for completion later this year. John E. McKelvy, Jr. '60 and a group of Professor Downs' friends and former students have donated the room in his honor. Downs plans to continue his research with the collection and will add to it as material becomes available.

HISTORY FACULTY WIN HIGH HONORS Two Trinity faculty members have received national awards. Borden W. Painter, Jr., professor of history, has been awarded a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities for study next year. H. McKim Steele, Jr., professor of history and director of intercultural studies, and his wife, Ann, have been appointed to the Danforth Associate Program. Painter will attend seminars at Brown University on "Society and

Popular Culture in Medieval and Early Modern Italy" and will study the subject of popular piety in Italy from the 14th to 16th centuries. The Steeles are among 540 persons in colleges and universities throughout the country appointed to the Danforth Associate Program, which encourages humanizing of the learning experience and increasing the effectiveness of teaching on college campuses. The program is unique in that spouses of academics are also considered as associates in recognition of their roles as contributing members of the college and broader community. Eight regional conferences are held each year on themes related to the positions of Danforth Associates as teachers and citizens. In addition to being guests of the Foundation at conferences, associates are eligible to apply for grant funds up to $2,000 for special projects to enhance faculty-student relationships.

SPRING EXTERNS ENTHUSIASTIC "Why doesn't everyone do this?" was sophomore Laura Roulet's CQmment to Cherylives, assistant director of career counseling, following Roulet's externship experience this spring.

"It was fascinating to get an inside view of a career," said Roulet of her experience working with an associate creative director in advertising. "This was a great introduction to advertising, which I couldn't have gotten any other way." There were concrete gains cited, too. Said Benjamin Klimczak, a sophomore who externed with an architect, "I came up with a drawing for a shopping center as a possible solution to a client's problem." Ann Marie Hesse, a freshman biology major who externed with two pediatricians, reports: "I prepared the patients for each exam, wrote up charts, called parents if the child was found to h ave strep and to remind them of appointments, and did some lab work." Ives, who is coordinator of the program, reports similarly enthusiastic responses from participants in this spring's externship program, which is a non-credit, unpaid experience in a work situation for one week of the two-week spring vacation. Designed to help undergraduates explore careers in fields they are considering entering after graduation, the program involves interested alumni and parents as sponsors. This spring there were 32 externs, including, for the first time, representatives of all four classes. Students worked in a variety of situations including: veterinary medicine, television production, data processing, human resource management, architecture, and actuarial work. T rinity was among t he first colleges to start an externship program three years ago, Ives reports, adding that the one-week period offers a good opportunity for reality-testing. "The students can test out their feelings about the work environment, the work pace, the work itself. As a result, they're not carrying around myths and fantasies for three years," says Ives.

Kenan professor will help undergraduates to develop understanding of how decisions are made in a democratic society and to explore the values which shape those decisions." The new facu lty position will be a joint appointment in the American Studies program and the academic department of the incumbent's specialty. "This approach will give us the flexibility to fill the position with people of the highest distinction irrespective of field and, over time, to explore the central theme of American institutions and values from more than one vantage point," Lockwood explained: A faculty committee will be appointed th is summer to undertake the search for t he Kenan professor. The appointment is expected to be effective in the fall of 1980. The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust was established in 1~65 by the late William R. Kenan, Jr., a chemist, engineer, industrialist, farmer, executive, and philanthropist. The foundation's grants are primarily in the form of endowed professorships bearing the donor's name.

STUDENTS PROTEST FROSH HOUSING A plan to disperse freshmen more widely throughout college dormitories sparked an afternoon of protest this spring by about 200 students. Initially, the protestors gathered outside the housing office in Hamlin. Leaders carried petitions signed by about a quarter of the student body calling for the removal of freshmen assigned to t h e High Rise dorm, traditionally an upperclass bastion. The petitions also argued that the dispersal of freshmen would be potentially damaging to both the new students and to upperclassmen. After some desultory chanting and a brief foray into the housing office itself, the protestors moved willingly to the Washington Room for a discussion of the new housing proposals with Vice President Thomas A. Smith. During some three hours of occasionally heated discussion the two major issues appeared to be the loss of 24 upperclass spaces in High Rise, and

KENAN TRUST ENDOWS CHAIR The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust of New York has awarded Trinity a $750,000 grant for an endowed professorial chair in American Institutions and Values. President Lockwood announced the gift at Commencement exercises May 27. "In a time of financial stringency, this professorship is especially welcome since it enables us to strengthen an important aspect of our curriculum without necessitating adjustments in other areas," Lockwood said. "The

Members of the Trinity community retiring from service were honored at a special reception held in May. They are: (left to right) Alfred A. Garofolo, director of campus security (13 years at Trinity); Elisabeth Belden, , ad路 ministrative assistant to the president (39 years); W. Howard Spencer, associate director of development (15 years); and L. Barton Wilson, manager of special projects (14 years). Recognized for 25 years of service were Dr. Philip C. F. Bankwitz, professor of history; Agatha Gallo, administrative assistant in the treasurer's office; Dr. James M. Van Stone, professor of biology; and Dr. E. Finlay Whittlesey, professor of mathematics.


about six years, including work for the Connecticut Opera Association as a chorister. He was valedictorian for the class of 1979 and graduated with honors in general scholarship and departmental honors in Italian.

FACULTY CUT APPROVED

Some 200 students gathered outside the Office of Residential Services in Hamlin Hall to protest new policies assigning freshmen to upperclass residences.

poor communications with the campus at large on housing. Smith indicated that the proposal had been discussed with Student Government and with Resident Advisers, but agreed that there could have been more campus-wide airing of the new plan before room assignments were finalized. Smith also explained that interspersing freshmen among upperclassmen had been the custom at the College until this past year when an experiment with centralized freshman dormitories was tried. Next year freshmen will be more broadly scattered to compare the two approaches to housing. Both systems will be evaluated in establishing a permanent housing policy. In a letter to the Tripod, Smith explained the thinking behind the new plan: "I have had numerous occasions to discuss residential arrangements with counterparts at other places and with colleagues here. There seems to be a preference among them ... to mix new with upperclass students. The most frequent reasons given are that the experience and knowledge of the older students will be transmitted more rapidly to the younger, thereby enabling them to make more satisfactory and considered choices in respect to behavior, their social lives and . . to unexpected academic demands." The day following the protest the administration modified its approach slightly by returning High Rise to allupperclass status. Freshmen slated to

live there were reassigned to Wheaton, Cook and North Campus dorms. Though about 400 undergraduates took part in the protest and discussions, there was no unanimity among the student body. A smaller group of students criticized the demonstration as an "exercise in elitism" and questioned why difficult social issues such as sexism, racism and the J.P. Stevens boycott stirred little interest on the campus.

OPERA AFICIONADO WINS WATSON Ted A. Emery, an Italian major from Schoharie, New York, has been awarded an $8,000 Thomas J. Watson Travelling Fellowship to study Italian opera and drama of the "verisimo" period in Europe next year. The grants are awarded annually to outstanding college graduates to extend their knowledge, through travel and independent study, in a particular field of interest. Trinity is one of 48 private colleges and universities in the U.S. invited by the foundation to submit candidates for the prestigious fellowships. Emery's grant will enable him to study, primarily in Italy, England, West Germany and Austria, researching the interrelationships between opera libretti and drama of the late 19th century. An opera aficionado, Emery has been a professional opera singer for

After nearly a year of deliberation by its Educational Policy Committee (EPC), the faculty voted to endorse the Committee's recommendation to cut back the faculty from 141 116 to 135 full-time positions by 1982. The vote was 54-45 with one abstention. Subsequently, the Joint TrusteeFaculty Educational Policy Committee accepted the report, which was endorsed by the Board of Trustees at its May meeting. Specific cuts proposed by the EPC are as follows: 1) College Professorships: reduction of one. One of two college professorships shall be eliminated by no later than September, 1982. 2) College Organist: reduction of one-half position. Post will be eliminated as a faculty slot, effective as soon as possible. 3) Department.of Education: reduction of three (possibly two) positions, effective September, 1982. The Department shall be eliminated together with its graduate program and teacher preparation and certification program. A residual program in educational studies shall be organized with a staff of one (possibly two). In the event that such a program requires more than one faculty member, the additional position in educational studies shall be balanced by proportional reduction elsewhere in the faculty. 4) Department of Modern Languages: reduction of two-thirds of one position, effective 1979-80. 5) Department of Physical Education: reduction by one, effective September, 1982. The vote adopting the recommendations came only after a series of special faculty meetings and long debate on each point. Faculty concern centered about not only the specific cutbacks, but also the criteria being used to measure departmental programs and the possible precedents being set for the future by current actions. Commenting on the deliberations, President Lockwood complimented the faculty for its willingness to meet the issues head-on. "The faculty has shown great courage and diligence by voting on educational grounds," he

5


said. "Their acceptance 路of this responsibility shows a collegial approach to uncongenial matters." Lockwood went on to describe the adj ustments in teaching strength as "modest" compared with many institutions where cuts of ten percent or more are being made. At a teaching strength of 135 members, the student-faculty ratio will be 12 to 1, a proportion that compares favorably with most small colleges in New England.

DANA PROFESSOR APPOINTED

6

Dale Harris, a critic, author and specialist in the comparative study of the arts, has been named Charles A. Dana College Professor of the Arts for 1979-1980. He will join the faculty in Steptember. Harris earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Harvard and has taught at Stanford University, Cooper Union and Sarah Lawrence College. He is widely known for his reviews and articles on dance, opera, and musical comedy which appear regularly in American newspapers and magazines such as The New York Times and Atlantic. He is also cultural correspondent for the Guardian of Manchester and London as well as a contributor to the British Sunday Telegraph and The Observer. Harris is the author of a novel, Home Fires Burning, published by Macmillan in 1968. Currently he is completing a book-length study of the Russian impresario Sergey Diaghilev. He has lectured on Diaghilev at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institution. Harris visited the campus this past spring to present a three-part lecture series, entitled "The World as Art," which was well-attended by the Trinity and Hartford communities.

FIRST ALUMNA ELECTED TRUSTEE Emily Holcombe Sullivan, an attorney from West Hartford, has been elected to a six-year term as alumni trustee. She will be the first woman graduate of the College to serve on the Trinity board. After graduating from Trinity in 1974 with honors in American studies, Sullivan attended Yale Law School, earning her J.D. degree in 1978. She is currently clerking for Connecticut Supreme Court Justice John A. Speziale and will join the

Emily G.H. Sullivan Hartford firm of Updike, Kelly & Spellacy in July . As an undergraduate, Sullivan was arts editor for the Tripod, president of the Trinity Community Action Center, and a member of Pi Gamma Mu. As an alumna, she has participated in the Career Advisory Program.

NATIONAL HONORS FOR CAMPAIGNS Two top national awards have come to Trinity because of the outstanding response to recent fundraising drives. One award, for Exceptional Achievement in a Total Financial Support Program, recognized Trinity's successful capita l campaign which concluded in July 1978. The Campaign for Trinity Values, Trinity's largest and most ambitious fund drive, raised more than $13 million, exceeding its $12 million goal by more than a million dollars. The capital campaign provided Trinity with endowment funds for new professorships and other faculty support, for scholarships and other purposes, and "bricks-and-mortar" money for the library addition that opened this year. Trinity's award, the highest in its category, was part of the 1979 Recognition Program sponsored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Trinity also took First Place in the 1979 Alumni Giving Incenti ve Award Program sponsored by the United States Steel Foundation. This award recognized the increased number of alumni donors and increased alumni contributions in the 1977-78 Alumni Fund.

The 77-78 Alumni Fund was spurred by a challenge grant from the Charles A. Dana Foundation. A record 4,394 alumni contributed $373,052-a lso a record-to earn $ 103,000 of the Challenge grant. That year there was a 9 percent increase in alumni donors, and a 45 percent increase in contributions. The First Place Award, which includes a $1,000 grant from the U.S. Steel Foundation, was in the Improvement Category for colleges with more than 10,000 alumni. "Trinity is proud to receive these awards on behalf of the many donors and volunteers who brought us success," President Lockwood said. "Philanthropy is vital to the wellbeing of the College, and we are encouraged to know that Trinity ranks highest this year among those colleges receiving strong gift support. My thanks and congratulations to Bob Blum '50, Doug Tansill '61 and Tom DePatie '52, chairmen of these winning campaigns, and to all others who worked and contributed."

TRINITY HOSTS LANGUAGE MEETING Approximately 800 members of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA) gathered in Hartford in March for the association's annual convention, hosted by Trinity. The three-day event brought together scholars in modern languages and literature from around the country. Some 300 papers were read, covering a wide range of subjects, including Italian and Latin, Slavic, linguistics, criticism, bibliography, and film. Three Trinity faculty members presented papers at the convention. Eugene Leach, assistant professor of history, spoke on "Charles Dudley Warner's 'A Little Journey in the World."' Arnold Kerson, associate professor of modern languages, discussed "Francisco Javier Alegre's Translation, with Commentary, of Boileau's Art Poetique: An 18th Century Mexican Humanist's Contribution to Neoclassic Literary History." Nancy Comley, visiting assistant professor of English, spoke on "Semiotic Theory and Composition." Kaja Silverman, assistant professor of English, was secretary for a program on literary criticism at the convention, and Carl Brown, Allan K. Smith lecturer in composition and director of the writing program, chaired three sessions on teaching composition.


CLINICAL ENGINEERING PROGRAM BOLSTERED The Stone Foundation of Greenwich, Conn., has made a $72,000 grant to Trinity in support of the clinical engineering internship program. The program, which involves Trinity, the Hartford Graduate Center, and a consortium of Hartford area hospitals (Hartford Hospital, the University of Connecticut's Dempsey Hospital, and St. Francis Hospital), trains graduate engineering students in the use of high technology equipment essential for patient care. This equipment includes diagnostic ultrasound, brain and body scanners and computers used in a wide variety of clinical laboratories. Commenting on the grant, Dr. Joseph Bronzino, Roosa professor of applied science at Trinity and director of the clinical engineering program, said: "The health professions are becoming increasingly aware of the need for expertise in the use of highly sophisticated medical equipment. The Stone Foundation grant will hdp ensure that Hartford area hospitals will have the engineering know-how to utilize effectively the technology needed for the diagnosis and treatment of patients." The clinical engineering internship program was started as a joint venture ofT rinity College, the Hartford Graduate Center, and the Hartford Hospital in 1974 and is the only two-year, hospital-based program in the country. Graduates are awarded master's

degrees in clinical engineering and usually pursue careers in product development, hospital administration, and the management of clinical laboratories. ANNUAL FUND SETS NEW RECORD $609,067 Surpassing its $600,000 goal, Annual Giving for the second year in a row has set a new rec· ord. More than 4000 alumni contributed $412,000 to the Alumni Fund bettering last year's Dana Challenge campaign. The Parents Fund ex· ceeded its $95,000 goal and the Friends of Trinity Fund reached 108% of its goal. These together with the Busi· ness and Industry Fund brought the total Annual Fund to $609,067. It was a great year and Trin· ity is indebted to each and ev· eryone who made this year's ef· fort such an outstanding suc· cess.

SUMMERSTAGE OPENS THIRD SEASON The Trinity campus is once again the scene of some of the finest entertainment in Connecticut this summer as Summerstage launches its third season. With advance subscriptions to the theatre productions at record high levels, Summerstage communications and marketing director Gayle Gordon is anticipating "the most successful season to date."

"George Washington Crossing the Delaware" was one of five student-directed and designed one-act plays presented this spring by the Theatre Arts Program.

Three comedies, performed by a professional resident Equity company, highlight the Summerstage activities. Heading the line-up June 22 through July 7 was Alan Ayckbourn's "Absurd Person Singular." George Bernard Shaw's "Arms and the Man" fills the second slot July 13-28, followed by the recent Off-Broadway hit "Vanities" by Jack Heifner, August 3-18. The eight-week arts festival also includes performances by three dance companies, three children's theatre productions, chamber music concerts on eight consecutive Wednesday evenings, and the traditional Plumb Memorial Carillon Concerts, June 20 to August 22. Summerstage was inaugurated three years ago to "close the entertainment gap" in the central Connecticut region during the summer months. The program received a financial boost last winter when the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving pledged Summerstage $75,000 to be awarded over a three-year period. Additional grants have been received from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, the Greater Hartford Arts Council, the Long Foundation, the Roberts Foundation and the Ensworth Charitable Foundation. The success of Summerstage during its first two years has allowed artistic director Roger Shoemaker, assistant professor of theatre arts, to extend the theatre season by a week and, for the first time, to employ an all-Equity cast for the main stage productions. A second, non-professional company, composed primarily of talented college students, has been inaugurated to produce the children's theatre series.

BOARD OF FELLOWS ENDOWS A WARD The first Board of Fellows Award was presented in May to E. Lanier Drew, a classics major from Jacksonville, Fla. The award was established and endowed by current and former members of the Board of Fellows and will be given annually to the most outstanding woman scholar-athlete in the junior class. This year's award was presented by Jack Thompson of the Board of Fellows. Award-winner Drew won Club Awards in swimming and softball and varsity letters in basketball in her freshman and sophomore years at Trinity. This year, she participated in women's track and received a varsity letter as co-captain of the women's swimming team.

The LibraryAddition Students and books thrive in new surroundings. by Kathleen Frederick '71

1&fter nearly seven years, first of planning and then

.H. of construction, Trinity's $3.5 million libr ary

10

addition was completed in January, just in time for the beginning of the second semester. The costliest building project ever undertaken by the Coll ege, the five-story concrete frame add ition provides ample shelf and study space, new quarters for the Watkinson rare book collection, and more efficient work areas for the libr ary's 27-member staff. Financed primarily by gifts received during the $ 12 million Capital Campaign , the 42,000 square foot addition increases reader seating and open book storage by fifty percent. Trinity's library currently contains some 606,000 volumes (making it one of the most extensive collections among small colleges) and now has a capacity for more than one million books. A giant skylight joins the old and new sections of the library, providing magnificent natural lighting and a feeling of spaciousness. The successful incorporation of the eastern exterior brick wa ll into the decor of the expanded building is another unusual and effective architectural feature.

Students, faculty, and library staff are nearly unanimous in their plaudits for the new library. Comfortable chairs, numerous quiet corners, and huge picture windows, providing panoramic views of the campus and the city, are the most often-cited improvements. Head librarian Ralph S. Emerick is particularl y pleased with the electricall y driven compact stprage units, located on the ground floor of the addition, whi ch wi ll hold three times as many volumes as can be contained in open stack areas . Individual, foundation, and corporate support for the libr ary project included major gifts from O strom Enders, George H. Gi lman, Jr. , Stuart D. Watson, the late Dr. Karl F. Brown, the George F. Baker Trust, the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, the Kresge Foundation, the Charles E. Merrill Trust, the Pew Memorial Trust, the Surdna Foundation, Connecticut Bank & Trust Co., and United Technologies Corporation. Dedication ceremonies for the library addition, highlighted by remarks from syndicated columnist, author and classics sch olar Garry Wills, were held April 26.

Seabury Library, 1878

Williams Memorial Library, 1914

The growth of the Trinity Library during the last century and a half reflects the growth of the College as a center for learning. Now one of the finest small college libraries in the United States, with 606,000 volumes, the collection was once only 1,000 books, housed in a single room on Trinity's first campus in downtown Hartford. When the College moved to its Summit Street site in 1878, the library was situated in the extreme south end of Seabury Hall. Described in meticulous detail in the October 26, 1878 issue of the Trinity Tablet, the "spacious" new quarters consisted of "the basement and ground floor [of Seabury] ... the interior dimensions being thirty by thirty-three feet." In 1914, the library was moved to its third location in the newly-constructed Williams Memorial Hall, which was designed by Benjamin

Wistor Morris '93 and donated by trustee]. Pierpont Morgan. The library was dominated by a reading room built to accommodate 75 persons. The rest of W illiams was devoted to administrative offices. By the late 1940's, the increase in the size of the student body to 900 men, growth of the collection to 225,000 books, and the desire to house the Watkinson rare book collection at Trinity, led the trustees to seek funding for a new library, the first structure intended solely for this purpose. The -fourth Trinity College library, the building just remodeled and enlarged, was designed by the architectural firm of O'Connor and Kilham (headed by alumnus and trustee Robert B. O'Connor '16) and was ded icated in 1952. The expanded library has a book capacity of one mi llion volumes and seating for 650 persons. Total space in the library is 132,000 square feet.


Award-winning author and columnist Garry Wills, speaking at the library dedication: "I've spent about half my life in libraries, proba路 bly the better half. For some reason that use,d to be called being a bookworm. I've always thought of it as getting into the real world."

China Revisited After 20 years, a China scholar returns to the People's Republic. by Ranbir V ohra ince coming to power in 194 7 the Communist government of China has periodically (every ten years or so) startled the outside world with radical shifts in policy: The Great Leap Forward in 1958, The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in. 1966, and The New Long March in 1978. The first two were the product of Mao Tse-tung's thinking; the current one can be identified with Vice-Premier T eng Hsiao-p'ing. When I was first in China (1956-1959) I was an eye-witness to the developments connected with the so-called Leap Forward. The entire nation was then involved in a frenzied effort to leap into economic modernization depending on sheer human willpower. Ignoring all laws of economics, Mao T se-tung declared that it was not capital investment, or sophisticated technology, or professional planning and management, or material incentives that were necessary for economic advancement but faith in a self-reliance and faith in the masses, who driven by moral incentives and a heightened political consciousness could move mountains. The nation emerged from this experiment exhausted and demoralized for the Leap had not only failed to produce the Maoist economic miracle but had actually caused an economic setback. From 1966 to 1969 the world was witness to the bizarre goings-on of the Cultural Revolution. This time the national upheaval was created by Mao to vindicate his revolutionary vision which no longer appeared to guide the majority of the Party leaders because they held that planned economic growth had to take precedence over further social equalization. Fearful that the revolutio"n may not outlast him and knowing that he could no longer depend on the Party, Mao decided to exert his will by stepping outside theParty. The charismatic Mao Tsetung raised an army of youth - mostly students who had been liberated from attending schools and colleges - to attack all who had stood in his way, and this meant the leaders in the Party, the national and provincial governments, and the mass organizations. For a time, at the height of the Cultural Revolution, it may have seemed that the rampaging youth, who had been joined by radical workers, were indeed going to destroy the old order and all those traditional elements of thought and behavior that stood in the way of establishing a truly communist society. However, when the bloodletting was

S

16

over, Mao found himself not at the head of a society composed of the new socialist man but a country torn by factions and debilitated by strikes and armed conflict. If Mao's Great Leap had failed to remake the country economically, his Cultural Revolution had failed to remake the national culture. The years between 1970 and 1976 saw an uneasy balance being worked out between the Maoist radicals wanting to, somehow, carry on the Cultural Revolution, and the conservative pragmatists, led by Premier Chou En-lai, wanting to reestablish order and discipline. After making some significant gains following the death of Chou Qanuary, 1976) the radicals ultimately lost out to the pragmatists after the passing away of Mao in the Fall of 1976. The line of 路 development which Mao had opposed now made a full comeback with the rehabilitation, in 1977, of Ten Hsiao-p'ing, the man who had been twice dismissed from office since the beginning of the Cultural Revolution for being a "rightist" and a "capitalist roader." Vice-Premier Teng represents the policies of Chou En-lai and is, obviously, ready to go much further than Chou in promoting economic modernization. It appears that it is Teng, rather than Premier Hua Kuo-feng, who is behind the third and the latest shift in China's policies, dubbed the "New Long March." To achieve the goal of making China a "fully modern socialist state by the year 2000" T eng has reversed many of Mao Tse-tung's policies. Mao's emphasis on self-reliance has been discarded in favor of a massive reliance on foreign financial assistance, technology and know-how. From Mao's populist, morally inspired egalitarianism and decentralization of authority, China's leaders today have reverted to centrally guided planning, technical and managerial control in factories and industrial enterprises, material incentives and wage differentials for higher production, an elitist educational system and a dependence on intellectuals and professionals to achieve national goals. T eng calls his programme the "New Long March" but I see in the current Chinese developments a "new Leap Forward." Like the Leap of 1958 an attempt is being made today to achieve too much too fast. Twenty years ago the miracle was to be performed by human willpower, today there appears to exist a mystical faith in the words "science and tech-


nology," and a belief that once the most advanced technology is transplanted into China, all of China's problems will suddenly vanish. Like Mao, Teng gives the impression of a man in a hurry: Mao wanted to see the country well set on the path of permanent revolution before he died, T eng wants to see the country well set on the path of economic modernization before he passes on. The new policies have sent China on a buying spree that has sent the blood rushing into the heads of Western and Japanese industrialists and bankers. It appears that there is nothing that China does not want to buy: military hardware, planes, ships, computers, communication satellites, railway equipment; plants to establish mining and chemical industries; steel mills, tractor factories, harbor facilities, petroleum technology, etc., etc. One estimate is that Chinese planners are looking for an investment of $800 billion by the year 1985. All this, of course, to remake China into an advanced industrial nation by the year 2000! The million dollar questions is: How is China going to pay for the foreign investment? It is in this new environment of openness and international contact that I returned to China in 1978. The visit was rewarding because it provided an opportunity to get a fresh, firsthand look at the country I had studied from afar but not visited for twenty years. I must h asten to add that an assiduous researcher in Delhi, Tokyo or New York is in a better position to assess developments in China more accurately than a casual visitor who lacks the Chinese language and has freedom to see only what is shown to him, and whose questions (often naive) are answered by well-rehearsed guides and officials. I say this not to decry the value of a touristic trip to China but to condemn those tourists who return from a ten-day visit and pose as instant authorities on this vast and complicated land. One aspect of the Chinese scene which I found most different, refreshingly so, from what I remember of China of 1959, was the absence of the polemic. The loudspeakers in the trains were silent, or only broadcasting music and not excerpts from Mao's writings; the billboards in the streets were often painted over, or路 had an old slogan that had peeled away; the paintings and photographs of Mao which were in public places had reduced in number, and those of Premier Hua were to be found only in

official reception halls; the guides no longer insisted on telling you how things were "before liberation" or bored you with endless quotations from Mao. At the village communes, factories and schools, my questions brought forth straight answers. The only exception to this was in Peking, where many Party members appear to still find it difficult to revert to plain talk. It was also pleasant to find that one could discuss for hours the developments of the last few years, as long as one put them, of course', in the context of the much-maligned activities of the "gang of four." Even though the answers conformed to the present policy line, many new details were freely and frankly revealed. The pity was that the speakers suddenly lost their powers of critical reasoning when the discussion shifted to current policies. The reduction in the emphasis on ideology in everyday life and the rehabilitation of the intelligentsia has resulted in a much more relaxed atmosphere in the urban communities. The young school or college students and the teachers were, obviously, happy to report that political meetings had been reduced to one a week. They were also excited at the new possibilities opening up for them. Twenty years ago, only a few could aspire to go to Russia or East Europe for further studies. Now thousands are going to be sent to America and Europe for advanced training in science and technology. Most of the youth I talked to wanted to be sent to America. Another opportunity that the new policies have created for school students, is that they can now go on to the university without having to spend two years laboring in the countryside. Instead of ideological perfection, the criterion for admission now is scholarly aptitude expressed through competitive examinations. At WuHan University, I saw hundreds of students immersed in their books unmindful of the terrible summer heat. Sitting in the library, or under the trees in their undershirts, periodic;ally wiping their brows with damp face towels, so absorbed in their studies that they were hardly aware that there was a foreigner amidst them, the youngsters left an indelible picture in my mind's eye of total dedication. Remembering, however, that last year 5. 7 million qualified students had competed for 100,000 places in the universities, I could imagine the disappointment and frustration in

17


same of education training to international standards. It is, indeed, a that China today lacks good teachers, well-equipped laboratories and sophisticated research facilities. The ten years from 1966 to 1976 were academically barren. Not only did all universities remain closed during the Cultural Revolution, but even when they reopened, the radicals' scorn for "book-learning" and "foreign knowledge," coupled with an ideologically oriented admissions policy contributed to the creation of a highly underqualified body of university students, who, in no way are ready for the tasks ahead of them. It is true that thousands of intellectuals who had been removed from their posts since 1957 have been rehabilitated, and that the older scientists and professors once humiliated for having bourgeois knowledge, are now being honored by being placed at the head of new institutions and academies, and put in charge of research departments, but knowledge and education cannot be instantly imparted or instantly acquired. I am personally not sure that the period of preparation needed to produce the skilled manpower which can effectively manage and operate the ultramodern industrial units China is now buying, can be cut down to a few years. The current situation in China is worrisome on two other counts: firstly, behind the relative stability of the present government, there is no doub t a continuation of the policy-and-power struggle that liquidated the "gang of four." This struggle is now far more subtle than the ruthless confrontation that took place between the "left" and the "right" in late 197 6. It is a struggle between those who would like to push for rapid economic modernization even if it means a total rejection of the Maoist thought, and those, who are also pragmatists, and also for economic modernization, but who would like to retain some of the important elements of the Maoist social vision. Then, of course, there are the idealists, and they need not necessarily be supporters of the "gang of four." These idealists see in the 180 degree swing, a death-blow to revolution and the revival of bourgeois elitism and social inequalities. These idealists may be silent at the present, but their voices will, no doubt, be heard the moment something goes wrong with Teng's plans. What, for that matter, will happen if T eng were to die tomorrow? The enthusiasm with which "everyone" in China appears to be greeting the new policies can be misc-cu ....... ,"."''"'

18

. Twenty years ago, in 1958, I had been y impressed by a similar display of enthusiasm Great Leap Forward, which, we later , was supported by very few. Nearer in time we have a flood of evidence that the policies of the, now much maligned, "gang of four" had been publicly endorsed by wild rejoicing! The answer to this anomaly lies in the fact that anyone who opposes authority is automatically looked upon as a traitor and is treated as such. The result is that China presents the strange phenomenon of power struggle and radical shifts of policy at the top which are not reflected in any alignments at the level of the common man. There is always, apparently, an unstinting massive public support at the bottom for whomsoever is in power at the top! China's new policies are welcome to the capitalist world because they are "understandable" (China is, at last, becoming a "normal" country) and, of course, because they open that vast land to immense possibilities of capital investment. Unless, however, it is recognized that the struggle between the two lines for China's modernization transcend the actors involved in post-Mao China, many in the West may be in for a rude shock if, and when, the pendulum swings from the right to the left. To believe that the M aoist vision of the good society is dead for all time to come, would be, perhaps, an error of judgment. My last point is concerned with the grand dream itself. One blamed Mao for his periodic sallies into the realm of romantic illu'sion to solve China's problems. My question today is: Is the current vision less romantic? When all is said and done Mao's idea that China could not afford to follow the Russian or Western pattern of development had much merit. By emphasizing social change even at the cost of more rapid economic growth, he wanted to ensure an increasingly better life for the peasantry who form 80 percent of the population. China's n ew policies will not onl y increase the gap betwee n the village and the city but are likely to produce a situation where the country as a whole may not be able to absorb the extremely advanced industrial sector, being transferred from abroad, into the national economy. Anyway, the new Leap Forward has just begun and one will have to wait to see the results. Its impact on the future of China will be far more positive if the current leaders learn to hasten slowly .• Editqr's Note: Since this article was received by the Reporter, C hina has revised its economic targqs a nd the process of buying foreign technology on a massive scale has slowed down .

I

t is a little before noon on Commencement Sunday, May 27. We are standing on folding chairs behind the speakers' platform, our arms resting on the back railing; ahead of us, the Quad is almost completely covered with chairs for the graduates and their relatives. Standing behind us is Bishop Brownell, his arm making a parting-of-the-Red-Sea gesture over the' center aisle. From this close, Bishop Brownell looks a little worse for the weather; there are rust stains running down his face. Everybody cries at Commencement. It's dark out, and a little cold to be in shirtsleeves. I am with Jim Pomeroy and Mark Boulanger from the audio-visual office, who are here to take care of the sound system, and they say that it's going to rain. At the Baccalaureate this morning, the flags were flapping in the faces of those sitting on the platform. The wind is blowing the crepe paper off the graduates' chairs. Rain would be unfortunate. It would throw the whole thing into the Ferris Center, where there simply is not enough room for everybody-there has been a waiting list for extra rain tickets for a month-and, besides, the seniors deserve a better ending. They had a tent party on the Middle Campus last night, characterized mainly by having "14 kegs and 2 taps, one of which worked" (so says Jim) and by being too dark to see the person in front of you.

Music came from two speakers in the windows of the dining hall, too loud to get close to but a nice demonstration of stereo if you walked by them; it had been a fair party, at best, but the seniors were looking for a Grand Finale. .

up wearing the same outfit. ("What? This old thing?") A few of the men didn't hang their gowns out before Commencement, and are wearing a sort of alligator pattern where the gown was folded for packaging.

Leaving Mark and Jim to their own devices, I wander into the campus center. Everyone is having lunch in the dining hall, the last Saga meal for the seniors and the first for their parents and relatives. Seniors are nostalgic. Parents are unimpressed. Downstairs, the bookstore is open and doing a brisk business selling film. Trinity T-shirts, plaques, pennants, mugs, and ashtrays are not moving well. No one is buying textbooks. I hurry to Downes Memorial and help the ushers, who are stuffing the page with the honors graduates into the programs. "Programs! Getcher programs here!" cries one usher, imitating a vendor at a baseball game; "Hey, here's an ugly one," cries another worker, finding a program that slipped up at the printer's. I discover that I am putting the honors graduates between the wrong pages. On the Quad, the carillon is playing and the good seats are filling up. The diplomas are being stacked behind the platform, and the Governor's Foot Guard Band is playing "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning," somewhat optimistically.

Dean Winer, speaking through a megaphone, is trying to get the seniors to line up in the Chapel parking lot. With all the milling around, and the still-threatening skies overhead, it looks like a lifeboat drill. I talk to Andrew Walsh, who wishes he hadn't worn his suit jacket under his gown; he hopes it doesn't rain for the ceremony. I hope it doesn't rain on Monday for the Memorial Day holiday. Michael Morgan hopes it doesn't rain on Tuesday, because he plans to stand in a back yard and get married. (It rains on Monday. Weddings take priority.) Back at the platform, a little girl with ribbons in her hair has lost her parents, and turns herself in to the Governor's Foot Guard. The band stops playing and has the parents paged, and there is a small round of applause as they pick the girl up. Then the band strikes up a slow number; the first graduates step forward, like the front of a long train; and the processional begins. The audience is requested to remain seated until the President's party reaches the platform, and unanimously decides to ignore that. It doesn't rain all day. During the E's, the sun comes out.•

The seniors have put on their caps and gowns, which they all bought at the bookstore last week. On the whole, they look better on the women; I compliment Barbara Grossman on hers, and she says that she hopes no one else will show

Carillonneurs Hit New Highs

by L. Barton Wilson '3 7

"It 20

is a fine carillon but I kept reaching out for more keys." Those were the words of Leen 't Hart, director of The Netherlands Carillon .School, following his recital during our summer carillon series in 197 5. It was what dozens of other carillonneurs have said of the original 30-bell instrument at the College. But this summer the guest carillonneurs do not have that problem. Nineteen additional bells installed in December

Nineteen more bells enhance the music from the chapel tower. 1978 extend the range of Trinity's carillon. As most carillon music is written for four octaves, carillonneurs no longer have to restrict their repertoire or improvise to accommodate the smaller number of bells. The carillon at Trinity with its 49 bells is now one of the major carillons in North America. The story of the Trinity carillon goes back to 1932. On July 18 of that year, the Chapel was consecrated in elaborate ceremonies. On the same day, the Hoisting of the new bel is on November 10, 197~ was a memorable occasion on campus


High in the Chapel tower, the bell chamber now holds 49 bells making the Trinity carillon a four-octave instrument and a major c~rillon in North America

Plumb Memorial Carillon was dedicated. The latter was the _gift of The Reverend and Mrs. John F. Plumb in memory of their son, John, Class of 1926, who died in his senior year. An interesting stipulation of the gift was a guarantee that someone would learn to play the new carillon. Dr. Remsen B. Ogilby, then president of the College, already wore several hats. But he accepted the challenge and added a new hat to his wardrobe. He learned to play and became the official College Carillonneur. I can attest to the fact that he loved to play. In the summer of 1933, my mother and father brought me to New England to explore college possibilities. We drove to Hartford where we stayed at the old Bond Hotel. Our first visit was Trinity. After the interview with Or. Ogilby-he was wearing his admissions hat that day-he asked if we liked carillon music. I don't remember our answer but obviously it prompted him to invite us to sit 'neath the elms while he played. And he did-a private recital for three strangers from Maryland. Incidentally, we visited no other college in New

England. After all, if the president of Trinity .... Dr. Ogilby's interest in the carillon went beyond merely playing the instrument. He envisioned a formal organization that would perpetuate carillon music and gain the recognition he thought it deserved. In October 1934, he invited a number of carillonneurs to the College for a two-day conference on carillon music, for recitals, and discussions on the possibilities of forming an organization of those who were interested in the carillon. As a result of that gathering, the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America was formed in 1936. Today, membership in the Guild numbers more than 450 men and women. Over the years, the original 30-bell T tinity instrument has been in constant use. During the academic year, students play on a regular basis and for weddings, Honors Day, Commencement and other special occasions. Learning to play the carillon is a new experience for most of the students who are members of the Trinity Guild of Carillonneurs, an organization relatively small in number but not in enthusiasm. The Master Carillonneur is charged


with seeking new members and helping to teach the art of playing. In 1949, the annual summer carillon series was inaugurated. It continues to be a popular attraction for hundreds of people-from infants up-who gather on the Quad on Wednesday evenings. They bring their folding chairs and blankets and, many, a picnic or just a bottle of wine. Even rain is no deterrent as they crowd the cloisters and the archways or sit in their cars. The outstanding carillonneurs who perform come from many parts of this country and Europe. They play a wide variety of music-from Bach to Joplin. The response of the audience is always genuinely

enthusiastic. The repeated comment of the visiting carillonneurs is that the Trinity campus is probably the finest setting in America for carillon recitals. The transition from 30 to 49 bells began in May 1974, when the College received word that the will of Miss Florence S.M. Crofut, Hartford philanthropist and author, included a generous bequest designated for expansion of the Trinity carillon. This was not Miss Crofut's first gift to the College. She donated the courtyard in honor of former president, G. Keith Funston; established a fund to provide honorariums for the guest carillonneurs performing during the annual summer concert series; and a fund for restoration of rare

R. Hudson Ladd, professor of campanology and carillonneur at the University of Michigan-and consultant on the ex· pansion of the Trinity carillon-played the dedicatory recital on April29

books in the Watkinson Library. In addition, she provided a seminar room in the library in memory of Charles McLean Andrews, Class of 1884, a distinguished scholar on the faculty at Yale. During the summer of 1974, R. Hudson Ladd, professor of campanology and carillonneur at the University of M ichigan, was retained as consultant for the carillon project. Miss Crofut's bequest permitted the opportunity to expand the carillon to a four-octave instrument. It was decided that this could best be accomplished by replacing eight of the original bells and adding 19 new bells in the higher register. A purchase order dated June 18, 1975 for 27 new bells was forwarded to John Taylor & Co., Loughborough, England, the same firm that had cast the original bells. Thus began several years of frustration, a mountain of correspondence, cablegrams, telephone calls, even visits to the bell foundry by several Trinity people vacationing in England. Finally, on May 4, 1978 a cablegram from Taylor informed us that the bells were ready for inspection. The last phase of the process was to begin. May 28. Hudson Ladd arrived at Trinity to record · our bell sounds to make sure the new bells would "wed" with the old ones. He left for England the same day. June 1. Returned from England, Mr. Ladd called from Boston to report that the new bells were perfect. July 7. The two crates containing the bells were loaded aboard ship in Liverpool. July 20. The shipment arrived in Charlestown, Mass. August 8. The Reverend Alan C. Tull, chaplain, Daniel K. Kehoe, Class of 1978, former master

carillonneur at the College, and I drove to the Mystic Pier in Charlestown and cleared the shipment through customs. A Trinity truck met us there and the crates were. soon on their way to Hartford. November 3. Personnel from the LT. Verdin Co., Cincinnati, Ohio, who would handle the installation, arrived on campus. November 10. The bells were hoisted into the bell chamber. Among those present for the moment we had waited so long for was Frank L. Johnson, Class of 19 17, who had driven to campus from his home in Newtown, Connecticut. As Mr. Johnson was once an active carillonneur and a founding member of the Guild, it was impossible to deny his request to carry the smallest bell to the top of the tower. It was a sentimental moment. December 15. After weeks of overseeing the intricate process of installation, Richard M. Watson of the Verdin Co. played the first recital. Suddenly the frustrations that had been a daily way of life since 1975 vanis hed. All who heard the "new" sound agreed: "It was worth waiting for!" April 29, 1979. Hudson Ladd played the first of two dedicatory recitals. May 6, 1979. Neil G. Dunay, C lass of 1981, and current master carillonneur at the College, played the second dedicatory recital. And thus begins a new era in the saga of the Trinity carillon. Generations of students, neighbors and fr iends will enjoy the "new" sound of music coming from high in the Chapel tower.• L. Barton Wilson '37 fell in love wi th t he Trinity carillon the first time he set foot on campus in 1933 . Though he retired this spri ng as Trinity's Director of Public Information, he still directs the carillon co ncerts during the summer months.

Journalism and the Liberal Arts Training tomorrow's reporters is not a "practical" matter. by William Kirtz '61

M

dvocates of a "practical" and of a liberal arts ~ education are fighting foolish and unnecessary battles these days. A liberal arts background is not a luxury but a necessity for tomorrow's chemists, economists, lawyers. T he amount of information in the world doubles every ten years; 75 percent of it has been developed during the last two decades. And as data multiply beyond the generalist's ability to keep abreast, experts in all fields have an increasing responsibility to weigh the effects of their activity and explain that activity to the rest of mankind. Recent history has shown us that biology is too important to be left solely to the biologists, law to the lawyers, sociology to the sociologists. Whether the issue is DNA research, perjury by public offi24

Courant

cials, or street crime, it must be considered in human, not simply technical, terms if the public is to be able to gauge its impact. A college student can be exposed to only a limited amount of information in four years. Long after graduation, what distinguishes the educated person is the abilrty to keep on learning, to test instinct against reason. A professional in any field who is adept at tactics and nothing else is undereducated, no matter how technically qualified. 路Nowhere is the mutual misunderstanding between "trade" and "ivory tower" education more prevalent than in the area of journalism. Journalism departments - swamped with students drawn to what has become a glamour profession - seem more inter-


ested in expanding their curricular territory than in considerering how long technique can pass for knowledge. Other disciplines, cursing grade school "media centers" and high school teachers who consider literacy an option, not a requirement, are shunting dangling modifiers off to Writing Centers. Here, students will presumably be inspired into prose like this (from Trinity College's course description of Introduction to Literary Study): " ... the critical reading of poetry, fiction and drama and consideration of some primary questions concerning the nature and function of literature and our -responses to it." Just as this kind of writing is more obscure than academic, a liberal arts education is less a frill than a necessity for a reporter able to distinguish between a fad and a trend. It is impossible to define "news," determine its significance and present it with clarity and grace without knowing what you are talking about. The myth that a reporter can be totally objective has long been exploded. News is the drastic selection of available fact . Three or four versions of the same incident, totalling perhaps 12,000 words, must be compressed into 600 words. Value judgement inevitably precedes every selection; the better educated the reporter, the better the value judgement. Reporters can no longer get by with the "just-thefacts-ma'am" superficiality that produced stories telling the "who, what, wh en, where and how" of, say, Senator Joseph McCarthy's charges without mentioning that those charges were baseless. Electronic journalism has usurped print reporters' claims to be first with the news. To survive, newspapers have to tell the "why" of the story. Today's reporter must be an investigator, not a stenographer. He must provide in-depth information; his radio and TV competitors have taken over the newspaper's former headline-service functions. And the best investigator, like the best scholar, is the one with the best grounding in the subject he covers - whether that grounding is called homework, checking the clips or research. For example, how can a reporter cover the broadcasting industry without some familiarity with regulatory agencies, or a sportswriter function while ignoring anti-trust and labor legislation? T oday's film reviewer must be more than a movie fan . He needs detailed knowledge of cinema history, artistic trends and such corporate tactics as block-booking and four-walling. (An entertainment writer had better understand those terms if he is to give the reader much more than Hollywood handouts.) The first-rate reporter must have the intellectual vocabulary to grow in his profession, just like his counterparts in other fields . A journalism school graduate adept at photo cropping, at home with type faces, but at sea with ideas simply lacks the background necessary to survive, let alone succeed, in a city room . Traditional disciplines should see opportunity, not peril, in the growing challenges facing journalism. Why, for instance, should English and journalism

A liberal arts education is mdre valuable to the student interested in a career in journalism than the technical courses offered in a journalism school. That's the consensus reached in an informal survey by · the Reporter of Trinity ,graduates wl}o ar~ £greet journalists. Those interviewed also seemed unanimous in the opinion that journalism, always a fairly competitive field, now seems to be enjoying a real vogue, which makes entry into the profession even more difficult for a new grad than it was ten .or fifteen years ago. The Woodward/Bernstein phenomenon was cited by several alumni as the in:l.petus for the new appeal of the newspaper business. Would-be journalists are "cap.tivated .bythe glamor . . . the idea of taking• down a president,"- says Malcolm Carter '66, national reporter for the · Associated Press, based in NewYork City. Carter, who has also written for. magazines ..oR-a free-laRce basis, would ROt advise a student to major in journalism ·oR aR uRdergraduate or graduate level:'"" "It's much smarter to m.a jor iR aRythiRg, even if it. doesR't result iR reporting in that field," says Carter. Most importantly, he says, the reporter has to be curious and open to many things. "If you are that type of person," Carter concludes, "you'll have a broad-based education . . . because you'll want one."


Joseph Bonsignore '42, associate publisher of Smithsonian Magazine, would ad vise young people to acquire a liberal arts education, and then get work in an entry-level position on some publication, "to h ave a credit to your name." "The training and the process are the same on trade journals and magazines alike," he notes, "although, the standards are quite different." Bonsignore has observed that frequently applicants expect creative writing in an editorial position on a magazine, when in reality many editors' positio ns revolve around editing material, fact-checking, and acting as liaison with contributing writers and aut hors. "Editorial is probably the hardest place to begin," says Bo nsignore, "when actually there are many opportunities in circulation, promotion, production, business management, and sales."

Cliff T.erry '58, an associate editor of Tribune magazine, of the Chicago Tribune, thinks that possib ly the old idea of starting on a small or medium-sized paper in a smaller city, and then moving on to a bigger daily paper, still has merit for recent grads. Terry favors a liberal arts education as preparation for a career in jo urnalism, adding that a new grad can learn the technical side on the job. "There's a big difference between learning in the textbooks and on the beats," says Terry. H e's also observed that a summer internship presents a great opportunity for students "to see what the real world is like," and, more importantly, to see if they like the newsroom atmosphere. Mary Jo Keating '74, corporate relations manager at Kaman Corporation, agrees that an internship can be a valuable learning experience for a you ng journalist. "On-the-job training" is the best way to begin. a career in journalism, according to Keating, who judges it difficult to train for in a college setting. She finds the kind of writing done in journalism-checking sources and reporting facts succinctly- not the same as the report writing done for m any college classes. But, she sees a liberal arts education as invaluable to the journalist, in providing a "basic knowledge of many different th ings."


programs eye each other so warily? To write well is to read well, and the best fiction advice (such as "Show, don't tell.") is the best non-fiction axiom. Why, in a period of unprecedented interest in nonfiction- when Truman Capote's claims to have pioneered a new form by using novelistic devices to heighten reality are taken seriously - is there such a curious reluctance to consider writing as writing, whatever its genre? English and journalism departments could cooperate with profit to probe the centuries-old tension between fact and fiction. They could trace New Journalism's roots back to the old novel. The father of the modern editorial, Daniel Defoe, presented Robinson Crusoe as the actual memoirs of a shipwrecked sailor. Charles Dickens used reportorial "legwork" while touring three Yorkshire schools under a false name to gather background information for Nicho las Nickleby. George Orwell drew on Jack London's look at squalor, The People of the Abyss, before recasting his own scrambles as journalism in Down and Out in Paris and -London. Is Norman Mail~r a novelist? Is Gay Talese? Interdisciplinary courses focussing on how writers use their experiences could help enliven literature for students laboring under the illusion that great authors' use of language is irrelevant to their own. Readers and viewers are becoming more concerned about how events are covered as they grow increasingly aware that the media set our agenda. If something is not reported, can it in an important sense be said to have happened? If the press does not consider equal rights, pollution or corporate bribery an issue, it simply is not an issue. Ralph Nader, announcing publication of a consumer's guide to newspapers, notes that the only way to guarantee that reporters become more accountable to their readers is "through active appraisal by the public." What are the liberal arts departments doing to boost the quality of such appraisal? Too little. The student who must dep~nd on the media's version of events because he cannot be everywhere himself should get some grounding in what reporters are supposed to do and some training in how to judge how well or badly they are doing it. The degree of bias in a story is as important a piece of consumer data as a carcinogen count. The world is unlikely to grow less complicated. In it, the narrowly-trained graduate is the one living in an "ivory tower" of specialization without reflection, not his liberally-educated counterpart. Battles between "practical" and "theoretical" education are simplistic evasions of a complex problem. Growing is our only alternative to shrinking. • A uthor W illi am Kirtz, a 196 1 grad uate of T rinity, is an assistant professor of journalism at Northeastern U niversity and a member of the Trin ity Board of Fellows.


The Class of Seventy-nine by Roberta Jenckes

Trinity's 153rd Commencement brings the annual renewal of the spirit.

H

igh winds and threatening storm clouds dominated the skies over Hartford on the afternoon of Sunday, May 27th, but failed to put a damper on the excitement of the Class of '79 and an admiring audience at Trinity's 153rd Commencement. A total of 377 undergraduates- 226 men and 151 women- received bachelor's degrees, while 50 students were awarded master's degrees. The new grads were joined in their celebration by parents and friends, who recognized the occas-ion with applause, hugs, and the omnipresent cameras recording visual memories of the day. The graduates themselves were reasonably subdued, except for the occasional whoop or jump of joy from the platform. Even the undergraduates, who every year perch on the ledge at Northam like so many watchful owls, eyed the Commencement ceremonies quietly. Special applause did, however, gO: to Valedictorian of the class, Ted A. Emery, of Schoharie, New York, who received a B.A. in Italian, and Salutatorian Martha P. McCarthy of West Hartford, Conn., who received a B.A. in psychology. Among the 50 master's degree recipients were the first students to complete requirements for the degree in Public Policy. Trinity also recognized the achievements of five

individuals, who were awarded honorary degrees. The recipients were: the Right Reverend John M. Allin,.Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, who gave the Baccalaureate sermon in the morning; Dr. John Donnelly, psychiatrist-in-chief and chief executive officer of the Institute of Living in Hartford; the Honorable Constance Baker Motley, U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York; Willis L.M. Reese, director of the Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law at Columbia University; and George F. Will, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and a 1962 Trinity graduate, who delivered the Commencement address. In his address, Will observed that there has been a tendency throughout history for "vague historical and social pessimism ... that diminish mankind's sense of self-mastery." This led to the conclusion, he said, that "mankind cannot effectively shape history." "This is not so," Will countered emphatically. "Individuals can make history ... they can matter," Will said, pointing out specific events that happened because of the particular individuals involved. "Decisive intervention by individuals in history" does matter, Will told the graduates. "Just as a boat's rudder shifted slightly at the beginning of


a voyage can totally change its ultimate destination, so can one individual influence the outcome of an event," he said. "So go forth and matter," Will concluded, "in a manner worthy of the college that today sends you forth." President Theodore D. Lockwood expressed similar hopes for the graduates in his Charge to the Seniors. "As you assume places of leadership," Lockwood said, "I urge you to retain faith that you can shape society's destiny in accord with your deepest convictions about what is right." (See box for the text of the President's charge.) Recognition for the accomplishments of the five honorary degree recipients came in their citations, which read in part: John Maury Allin, Doctor of Divinity: "Born in Arkansas, you have served as an Episcopal priest in your home state as well as in Louisiana and Mississippi before being elected Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church ... Higher education has also benefited from your talents. You have served as a member of the Board of Regents and Chancellor of the University of the South ... You are known as a man of steadying influence ... '' John Donnelly, M.D., Doctor of Science: "Your leadership in the field of mental health has helped shape legislation in Connecti.cut affecting patients' rights and the functioning of psychiatric institutions. You have guided the Institute of Living through the recent turbulence in society with vision and a meticulous administra-

tive style . . . You have maintained and augmented hospital standards of excellence in treatment, teaching and community service . . . " Constance Baker Motley, Doctor of Laws: "Your twenty-year service to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund enabled you to participate in all major public school desegregation cases, including Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka. You defended ]ames Meredith's right to enter the University of Mississippi and represented Martin Luther King and his followers in their Albany, Georgia campaigns. As a U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York, your ruling to admit women sportswriters to baseball locker rooms evoked a battery of comments.'' Willis Livir;tgston Mesier Reese, Doctor of Laws: "At Columbia University you have distinguished yourself as the Charles Evans Hughes Professor of Law and Director of the Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law. You have been at the forefront of a wide range of policy-making discussions and interpretations affecting international law. At the same time, your concern for the application of law and its effect on Americans has been evidenced by your involvement in Community Action for Legal Services . . . " George Frederick Will, Doctor of Humane Letters: "You first found and utilized the 路power of words as sports editor and editor-in-chief of the Trinity Tripod ... Your two years at Oxford, the doctoral study at Princeton, and the experience teaching political philosophy at Michigan State and the University of Toronto provided you the elements with which to refine your incisive politi-

cal thought. But we are most indebted to you for your far-ranging contributions to the National Review and now as contributing editor of Newsweek and writer of a syndicated newspaper column that appears in more than 300 newspapers. You were honored by a Pulitzer Prize for political commentary in 1977 ... Your enunciation of a coherent conservatism has not kept you from pas-

sionate abandon in one particular: at the age of seven you fell ankle over elbows in love with the Chicago Cubs ...

CHARGE TO THE SENIOR CLASS It has always been the expectation of Trinity College that its graduates will accomplish significant 路things in the worlds they choose. Some will make important discoveries; some will influence the course of professions like law, medicine, and business; and others will assist their communities in deciding among alternatives of public policy. Our Commencement speaker illustrates that effort. His writing helps people become aware of the issues we face both as individuals and as members of a society increasingly troubled by the choices we face. One such choice was posed by the leakage at Three Mile Island. That event has brought before the public the dangers that nuclear energy presents. Three Mile Island has reminded us of the crisis we face in the production of energy more vividly than lines at gas stations did in 197 3 - and may again. I shall not try to assess the implications or the consequences: what interests me is the basis on which a judgment shall be made. I agree with Rene Dubos that "social attitudes, rather than technological or economic considerations, are now the most important factors in the formulation of energy policies." Historically we have seen greater and greater public involvement in the energy question. We have been shaken out of the complacency that once allowed us to be indifferent to black lung disease among miners. It does not require the environmentalists, important as they have been, to make us more sensitive to the quality of life. We have moved our concerns to a new level because now we are thinking of the effect our decisions may have on unborn generations. That sensitivity complicates those decisions, but it augurs well for mankind. Whatever our conclusion about the future of nuclear energy, we have shown a capacity to think ahead as to the . kind of social and physical setting we prefer. We are balancing costs in social terms. We are injecting considerations of life style into the discussion; and that in turn wil1 affect social structures. True, we may not easily analyze out the technological aspects or accept the economic consequences, but surely we shall no longer neglect the social implications. This new sensitivity will require a sense of perspective even greater than that triggered by the concentration of oil in foreign sands. There are no easy alternatives. Hydroelectric power has the highest per kilowatt hour

cost of any form of energy. Dung is cheap but, like nuclear energy, only accounts for 1 percent of the total world consumption of energy. Windmills, solar energy, geothermal - all the newly popular alternatives are essentially small-scale. The rate of consumption may be a more pertinent concern. We shall learn to place all these considerations in a different social context. But that is not my main point. Rather I am concerned that we recognize that sociql attitudes - value judgments resting on our view of life - will ultimately determine what we do about energy. That observation lends new significance to undergraduate education, for it has always been our task in the colleges to provide the opportunity for young people to shape qualities of mind and feeling, of attitudes and character that will prove durable whatever the skills and knowledge they utilize. I can only hope that you who graduate today have acquired a confidence that you can bring your minds to bear upon these important matters and effectively express what you believe to be the appropriate social attitudes on matters of energy production and similarly critical public policies. For this reason I am .particularly pleased to announce today that the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable ;frust has endowed a professorship at Trinity College in American Institutions and Values. In a time of financial stringency this professorship is especially welcome, since it enables us to strengthen an important aspect of our curriculum without necessitating adjustments in other areas. The Kenan professor will help undergraduates to develop understanding of how decisions are made in a democratic society and to explore the values which shape those decisions. As Trinity prepares men and women for lives that will run far into the 21st Century, we recognize that they will face hard but unavoidable choices. The alternatives will not always be palatable; often the choice may be ~mong lesser evils, not greater goods. In confronting a forbidding future, you who graduate today will . need not only information and technical skill, but also the special qualities of intellect and spirit which liberal education seeks to nurture. As you assume places of leadership, I urge you to retain faith that you can shape society's destiny in accord with your deepest convictions about what is right. On behalf of the faculty and trustees of Trinity College, I congratulate you and extend our greetings. Good luck! Theodore D. Lockwood

MEN'S TRACK _ _ _ _ _ __ The track team struggled to a 2-4 season this spring. Despite the losing record, coach Rick Hazelton could boast of several fine individual performances. Junior co-captain Jeff Mather took eleven fi rst places and scored 78 points for the Bantams in discus, shot put, and hammer competition. Mather excelled in the discus throw, winning the NESCAC champions h ips and he broke his own record with a toss of 161'10" at the Eastern Championships, placing second. Mather placed -sixth in the New Englands and participated in the NCAA championships in Ohio . Mather's performance earned him the Robert S. Morris Track Trophy as the MVP of the team and he was elected captain for the 1980 season. Senior Uko Udodong and freshman Bob Reading excelled in the runn ing events and were the top point scorers behind Mather. Distance running was dominated by sophomore Alex Magoun and senior co-captain John Sandman as both men competed in

Freshman Jim Callahan was the surprise of the year on the track team, high jumping 5 '10" despite never having com路 peted before.

the mile and three mile events. Sandman led the team in the mile and his season's best time was 4:28.8, but Magoun took the lead over three m iles, stopping the clock at 15:02. In the jumping events, sophomore Dave Smith tripled in t h e high, long and triple jumps whi le Jim Callahan proved to be an outstanding high jumper. Callahan came out for the team by accident when he was walking by a practice and asked Hazelton if he could try the event that Smith was practicing. The freshman cleared the bar at 5' 10" on his first jump and went on to finish first in two dua l meets.

WOMEN'S TRACK _ _ _ _ __ In its first year as an informal sport, the women's track team posted an outstanding 5-1 record under coaches Rick Hazelton and Jane Millspaugh. Over forty women turned out to compete in afl traditional track and field events except the pole vault and the three-mile run. T h e most important victory came in the last meet


of the season as Trinity upset previously undefeated Eastern Connecticut, 65-62. In the running events, freshman Kathy Schlein and junior Lanier Drew paced the Bantams. At the New Englands, Schlein finished seventh in the 800-meter race while Drew placed in the top half at 3000 meters. Sophomore high jumper Anne Montgomery also competed in the New Englands for Trinity after winning the earlier NESCAC Championship for the second year in a row. Senior Sue Levin and junior Mary Lee Sole led Trinity in the field events and finished second and third, respectively, at the NESCAC tourney.

SOFTBALL ________________ The women 's softball team continued to show improvement in its third season and fin ished with a 4-6 record. Four of the losses came ea rly before the young squad gained enough experience to win four of their last six contests. First-year sensation Tracy Partridge led the team with a .562 batting average, a . 706 on-base average, and the only home run of the season. She also led the team defensively with 32 assists from her shortstop position. Sarah Farran (.466), Polly Lavery

(.44 7), and Lorraine deLabry (.400) also hit well as the squad compiled a .324 batting average. Freshman Minnie Mahoney pitched all but two of the 70 inni ngs played in posting a 4-6 record. She was ably backed up by a strong defensive team which recorded a .892 fielding average. The infield of Carol Mackenzie, Jan Kunin, Partridge, and deLabry was particularly impressive with just 16 errors out of 215 total plays.

BASEBALL _________________ Coach Robie Shults's varsity baseball team experienced a disappointing 2-12 season. Despite the poor record, the young squad played well and avoided the embarrassing losses that plagued the team in 1978. The annual spring trip to Florida gave Shults reason to be optimistic about the regular season as the Bantams scrapped their way to a 4-2-2 exh ibition record. This included a victory and two ties in four outings against the Philadelphia Phillies' Class A farm club. Trinity's success failed to continue in regular路 season games up North as the t~am dropped three contests before defeating Hartford 5-2. The Bantams'

only other victory came on the last day of the season against Bates. Several players enjoyed fine individual seasons. Seniors Joe LoRusso and Paul Pieszak were among the team defensive leaders. LoRusso, the team captain, committed only two errors at first base while Pieszak was flawless in center field. LoRusso also performed well offensively, leading the team in doubles and triples, and was named the Most Valuable Player. Second baseman Bob Almquist led the Bantams in five offensive categories. The junior batted .372 with nineteen hits and twelve runs batted in, stole seven bases and scored eight runs. Several freshmen made varsity contributions this year. Designated hitter Steve Guglielmo hit two home runs, a pair of three-run blasts in the victory over Bates. Dennis Gillooly also came on late in the season to hit .376 over the last seven games. 路 Despite an 0-5 record, junior Bill Lynch recorded the lowest earned run average, 3.92. Sophomore Nelson Toner, the Most Improved Player, and freshman Kevin Doyle posted Trinity's two victories. Almquist and Lynch will captain the 1980 squad.

MEN'S LACROSSE _ _ _ _ __ The men's varsity lacrosse team equalled its best regular season record ever, 8-1, and put up a tough fight in the New England Division II-III semifinals before losing 15-11 to Williams. This was Trinity's

second consecutive appearance in the post-season tournament and helped first-year head coach Mike Darr lead his team to a number 14 ranking in the final all-division New England poll. Trinity opened the schedule with easy victories over Amherst and Holy Cross. Upstart MIT dashed Bantam dreams of an undefeated season with a 10-9 overtime win, but Trin rebounded to capture the last six games on the schedule, including a hardfought 7-5 thriller at Springfield. With an 8-1 record, the laxmen earned the fourth seed in the New England tourney and the right to take on topseeded Williams. The Bantams gave the Ephmen their toughest game of the tournament . After trailing 7-6 at halftime, Trin tallied three of the first four goals in the third period to lead 9-8, but the Ephmen scored three in the last eight minutes of the quarter to go ahead 11-9. Unfortunately, Trinity ran out of fourth-quarter heroics as Williams scored twice late in the game to seal the triumph. The victors went on to vanqui'Sh Boston State, 17-9, in the finals. Co-captains Clint Brown and Greg Carey concluded the 1979 season as Trinity's all-time leading scorers. Brown, who scored 9 goals and 21 assists this year, totalled 50 goals and 87 assists over the last four seasons to set a new record for career points. Many of Brown's career assists went to Carey. Carey closed his varsity career with 110 goals and 21 assists, good for second place on the all-time

Trinity scoring list. Both Brown and Carey were selected to play in the New England All-Star Game, as was goaltender Peter Lawson-Johnston. The starting varsity netminder in each of the last two seasons, LawsonJohnston stopped 66.1 percent of the shots on goal this year. In addition to a powerful offense, the Bants featured a stingy defense that helped Trinity defeat opponents by an average of more than three goals per game. Doug Bennett, elected captain for 1980, and Bob Plumb combined defensive effort with offensive ability at midfield while the defense returns intact next year, except in the goal. The junior varsity also posted a winning record with 4 victories against 3 defeats.

WOMEN'S LACROSSE _ _ __ On a strength of an explosive attack which outscored its opponents by a three-to-one margin, the women's lacrosse team concluded the 1979 season with an 8-1-1 record. The Bantams scored 137 goals to just 45 for their rivals . Senior Carter Wurts led the team in scoring with 51 goals and 8 assists. This set a season record for goals scored and gave Wurts 129 career goals, establishing her as the all-time leading scorer. For her outstanding performance, she was elected most valuable player by her teammates. Dottie Bundy was close behind Wurts in the

scoring race. The sophomore tallied 44 goals and 11 assists. Bundy was trailed by senior captain Frances Dobbin, a midfielder who scored 24 goals and 14 assists while serving as the catalyst for the offense. Defensively, sophomore Anne Madarasz stopped 72 percent of the shots on Trinity's goal. The women's season was full of exciting matches. Explosive victories over Colby (21-1) and Connecticut College (18-2) were coupled with a disappointing 12-4 loss to Yale. Also, the heartbreaking 6-6 tie at Brown was offset by hard-fought victories over Williams (12-9) and Wesleyan (15-9).

VOLLEYBALL ______________ On June 5, the world champion Soviet men's volleyball team met the United States national team before a capacity crowd in the Ferris Athletic Center. The match, which was televised nationwide by PBS on delayed tape, was won by the USSR, but not before the surprising Americans captured an unprecedented two games in the best-of-five series. The match at Trinity was the opening stop on a six-city tour and was sponsored by the College and the United States Volleyball Association in cooperation with Aetna Life and Casualty.

MARATHON ______________ The 1979 Twenty-Four Hour Marathon raised over $2,500 towards the establishment of a new indoor track for the field house. Marathon organizer Sue McCarthy supervised eleven teams of joggers who logged a record 2,174.5 miles, spurred on by refreshments supplied by Trinity's Women's Club. President Lockwood officially started the Marathon at 9:00 a.m. on May 8 and later completed five miles himself. The only ingredient missing was an alumni team as Mary Jo Keating '74 was the only outside alumna among the 150 participants.

MEN'S TENNIS _ _ _ _ _ __ The varsity tennis team, under first-year head coach George Sutherland, fashioned an 8-4 record and placed two plavers into the NCAA tournament. Before this post-season accomplishment, the squad finished ninth in the New England Championships. In the first half of the season, the netmen won six of their first seven matches, losing only to Yale. The promising start, however, was offset by a difficult schedule which saw Trinity lose to three of its last fi:ve opponents. Several players enjoyed fine seasons. Senior cocaptain Eric Matthews and sophomore Drew Hastings filled the number one and two positions, respectively, and represented the Bantams at the NCAA's in Jackson, Mississippi. Hastings posted the best regular-season record on the team with a 9-3 mark while Matthews finished at 7-5. Matthews and fellow co-captain Tim Jenkins enjoyed their finest moment of the season when they captured the New England consolation doubles championship in the "A" division.

CREW~

For the first time ever, the Trinity crew captured the national small college rowing championship at the Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia. Rowing on the Schuylkill River, the freshmen lightweight eight won the only individual Bantam national ch ampionship and finished the season as the lone undefeated Blue and Gold boat. The women's crew, competing for the first time in the spring, helped to put Trinity over the top in team points as the nineboat squad brought the Bratten Trophy home to Hartford. The season-long march to the Vail opened with the varsity and novice women's eights taking two races at Mt. Holyoke. The men faced a more difficult time in New London as the Bantam freshmen lightweights were the only victors over arch-rival Coast Guard. All boats returned to friendly waters on the Connecticut River to take on Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Both women's boats remained undefeated while the men's four and the varsity lightweights earned their first victories of the young season. Rowing against Georgetown and Columbia on the Harlem River in New York one week later, the women and freshmen lights continued their unbeaten streaks, sharing the winner's circle with the junior varsity lightweights. The heavyweights saved their first winning effort for the Mason-Downs Cup. Trinity had to battle a tough Wesleyan crew, but the heavies pulled together and toppled the Cardinals by nineteen seconds for the eleventh Bantam victory in sixteen years of Cup competition. One week before the Dad Vail, Trinity traveled to Connecticut's Lake

Waramaug to row against Williams, Ithaca, and Marist. The Bantams appeared ready for Philadelphia, capturing five of eight races. Coach Norm Graf took nine boats to Philadelphia to attempt to wrest the national championship away from Coast Guard. The Academy had dominated small college rowing over the last four- years. When Trinity placed eight boats in this year's finals, it appeared that an upset was in the making. The freshmen lightweights were forced to battle the Coast Guard in the semifinals and finals . In the semis, Trinity eked out a half second triumph; in the finals the Bants defeated their New London rivals for the championship by 1.8 seconds, culminating a season-long rivalry and concluding an undefeated season. The women's varsity eight also entered the final round undefeated but were upset by the same Ithaca crew which they had beaten during the regular season. Their second-place points, however, assured Trinity of the Vail team championship. The men's freshmen heavyweight eight also took second place while third-place finishes were recorded by the varsity lightweight eight and the novice women. Trin's J.V. lights placed fourth and the men's four and heavyweight eight came in fifth. When the points were totalled, Trinity had held off Coast Guard and captured its first small college rowing championship.

GOLF _____________________ Despite an encouraging preseason trip to the Bahamas, the golf team experienced a disappointing spring, winning just three of e'ight matches under head coach Ted Coia. Trinity's victories were over the University of Hartford, Amherst, and WPI. The highlight of the season came in the final week as the Bantams finished fourth in the nine-team NESCAC Golf Championship.

Senior co-captain John Flynn captured the Wyckoff Golf Award by winning the annual intrateam tournament. While Flynn's leadership will be missed, the squad has a brighter outlook for the 1980 season with only two seniors graduating from a team that showed signs of potential this year. John O'Connell and Rob Golding will captain the team next season.

Quad Wranfles The Era of Retrenchment acuity meetings represent democracy at either its best or its worst. Having viewed countless such gatherings at three colleges in the past fifteen years, we have developed a sense of bemused wonder at the intellectual calisthenics displayed at these monthly workouts. As non-voting members of such deliberations, we have mastered the art of enduring silently as the faculty wanders through an agenda in its own tangential style. The difficulty is that faculty members are too bright and articulate to govern efficiently. They find nuances and shades of meaning in every phrase of proposed legislation, if not in every word. Their parliamentary detours would baffle Mr. Robert himself; on occasion the debate about procedural matters is more spirited and complex than the exchanges of opinions on the issue at hand. For all its seeming shortcomings and convolutions, however, the system works. Through the give-andtake of committee cogitation and open debate, the Jaculty keeps a guiding hand on the curricular concerns of the College. But the questions get tougher and less academic each year. Nowhere was this fact more clearly evident than at Trinity this spring when the facu lty agonized over the unpleasant task of reducing its own numbers by six members. The faculty Educational Policy Committee, after more than a year of coll oquy and review, agreed that the reduction was a "wise and prudent decision" at this time. Subsequently, the Committee brought its recommended cuts to the entire faculty for consideration and a vote. (The specific reductions are reported elsewhere in this issue.) Hardest hit by the EPC was the Department of Education, which.was slated to absorb up to one-half of the six positions to be eliminated. In what President Lockwood has called "a demonstration of great courage and diligence," the faculty narrowly approved the EPC solution bringing faculty size down to 135 members. But throughout the hours of special meetings and thoughtful debate on 路 the cutback, it became obvious that faculty concern ran far deeper than the six particular positions in question. Even though the reduction was characterized as "modest" when compared with more drastic steps taken at sister institutions, speakers made frequent references to the bleak demographic and economic outlooks for the next decade. Trinity is not immune to these forces, which foreshadow more hard looks at instructional and administrative staff levels in days ahead.

f

38

Little wonder, then, that the faculty asked some tough questions this time around. What, for example, is the educational mission of the College? What are the criteria used in evaluating departments? How are the relative merits of the various disciplines to be assessed? What programs or departments are "central" to a liberal arts curriculum? How does a college provide a broad, basic program, yet still allow for flexibility to meet enrollment shifts and to foster innovative educational proposals? What is the College's responsibility to absorb displaced faculty and to help these individuals "re-tool" to teach in other disciplines? What impact will reduced faculty size have on our ability to attract top students? Are there places to cut other than the instructional staff such as administration, summer programs or even varsity football? Clearly, the agendas for next year's faculty meetings are already full. Some of these questions will be debated long beyond the turn of the decade on campuses throughout the country. At Trinity, .perhaps the most encouraging part of a discouraging era is that the critical issues are being aired openly and early on. The candor and collegiality so evident in the Trinity community should not be discounted. The past spring was difficult. But from our vantage point, the College has emerged strong from this first round and, if anything, better prepared to come to grips realistically with the substantial challenges ahead.

So Long, Betty Thirty-nine years ago, Elisabeth Belden came to Trinity College. After nine years in the Alumni Office she became President Keith Funston's secretary and has remained ever since as the administrative right arm of three college presidents. Her graciousness, loyalty, perceptive judgment and sense of humor are among the qualities that have endeared her to a wide circle of alumni, colleagues, students and friends of the College. In the course of four decades she has been an institutional anchor, providing order and continuity to a scene where students, trustees and even presidents come and go. On the occasion of her retirement this June the College awarded her the A lumni Medal of Excellence noting that she "had truly become an alumna of this institution." Now she has exchanged her notebook and appointment calenqar for days full of canoeing, camping, bicycling and travel. To many of us, Trinity will never be the same without her. For her devoted service, grace under pressure, and countless kindnesses, we say simply, "Well done, Betty, and thank you." WLC

You too can know the joy of giving. Through an outright gift or a deferred gift to Trinity College, you can also enjoy Federal income tax and estate tax benefits, including avoidance of capital gains taxes, as allowed by law.

For two years Pop's fund has provided scholarship aid for a young woman se-

52 LOU LITTLE, Trinity '17 by Nick Noble '80, Co-Sports Editor, Trinity Tripod

When Lou Little, the renowned coach of Columbia University's finest football teams, passed away in early May of 1979, the newspapers had a lot to say about his career. They detailed his four successful seasons as a tackle for the University of Pennsylvania from 1916-1919, and they delineated his efforts as an early professional on the gridiron, just prior to his start in college coaching. But what they failed to mention was that Lou Little h.ad been, for less than five months, a member of the Class of 1917 at Trinity College. Little came from Leominster, Massachusetts, and at the age of twenty-one, when he had made enough money so that he could afford the education, he enrolled at the Un-iversity of Vermont. Academic difficulty proved his problem, however, and after two years in Burlington (he matriculated there in the fall of 1913, and returned again in the fall of '14) he was Honorably Dismissed, and sought learning elsewhere. Lou Little enrolled at Trinity College in Hartford in February of 1915. His registration certificate indicates that he had just recently turned twenty-three. He played no sports, and applied himself to his work. But the money ran out, and he left the Summit in June of that same year. He spent a year working, and enrolled at Penn in the autumn of 19f6, where he first donned football pads. The rest, as they say, is history.
