Letters To the Editor: It was disconcerting to see a photograph of a picketing Union College faculty member in the article about "The Campus and the Court" in your winter issue. Lest any of our friends at Trinity wonder, it is not this Union College; our faculty members are not union members. As you know there are several Unions, just as there are several Trinitys, and I assume the photo came from one of the others. Oh, for a unique name like Slippery Rock. Sincerely, Peter Blankman Editor, Union College Schenectady, N.Y.

To the Editor: Mr. Donald L. McLagan, Class of '64, in establishing a $100,000 fund to provide income each year for general purposes of the college, gave "a large part of the credit" for the phenomenal success of his financial consulting firm to the Engineering Department at Trinity. I think it would be of interest to Trinity alumni to know that the Engineering Department was established ' and endowed by another successful Trinity man, Karl H. Hallden, Class of '09. Sincerely yours, Charles T. Kingston, Jr. '34 West H artford, Ct.

Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk STEPTO JOINS BOARD OF FELLOWS Robert B. Stepto '66, associate professor of English and Afro-American Studies at Yale University, has been elected to a three-year term on Trinity's Board of Fellows. The Fellows is a committee of twelve alumni who serve in an advisory capacity to the trustees and College administration. Stepto earned his master's and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University. He taught at the University of Chicago, Stanford and Trinity before joining the faculty of Williams College in 1971. He has been at Yale since 1974. Stepto was a member of the executive committee of the National Alumni Association at Trinity from 1972-1974.

FACULTY VOTES CURRICULAR REVIEW The faculty has approved a proposal to review Trinity's curriculum and has named an ad hoc committee of eight faculty members and three undergraduates to accomplish the task. The review committee will report back to the faculty no later than April, 1981. The present curriculum, adopted in 1969, takes an "open" approach to learning, giving students an unlimited choice in designing their non-major programs of study. In recent years a number of colleges have begun a shift back to general requirements for undergraduates. While there does not appear to be any strong movement in this direction at Trinity, there is general agreement that a "ten-year check-up" of the instructional program is in order. Much of the impetus for a new look at the curriculum comes from President Lockwood, who has held wide-ranging talks on the subject with faculty members this year. He also commissioned four papers on the curriculum by faculty from biology, philosophy, modern languages and theatre arts as a means of stimulating discussion among the instructional staff. Commenting on the need for

review, Lockwood indicated that the "financial, demographic and other challenges confronting liberal arts colleges in the 1980s and '90s make it essential that Trinity brings the utmost intellectual clarity and conviction to an uncertain future. "The issue for Trinity is not survival," he added, "but whether the College will enter the 21st century with its excellence not only intact, but enhanced." At its first meeting the ad hoc review committee elected Borden W. Painter, Jr., professor of history, as its chairman. While the specific review format is still in the formative stages, some of the possible topics to be considered include the academic calendar, internships, faculty advising, departmental programs, the doublemajor, and requirements for the bachelor's degree. Painter was quick to point out in an early session that his group was a review committee, not a reform committee as was created in the late '60s. At the same time, the faculty has placed no limits on the nature of the inquiry, and it is expected that fundamental curricular issues such as "core courses" and "vocationalism" will be scrutinized. Over the summer a subcommittee will gather data for use in the study. The review committee plans to examine curricular approaches at other colleges and universities and is contemplating a survey of alumni to determine how well the present program of study has served them. Alumni interested in expressing opinions on their Trinity education are encouraged to write Professor Painter in the Department of History. Other faculty members of the ad hoc review committee include: James R. Bradley, associate professor of classics; Andrew G. De Rocco, dean of the faculty; Karl F. Haberlandt, associate professor of psychology; Kenneth Lloyd-Jones, associate professor of modern languages; Michael R.T. Mahoney, professor of fine arts; August E. Sapega, professor of engineering; and Robert C. Stewart, professor of mathematics. Undergraduate members are: Thomas Hefferon '82; Joseph Troiano '81; and Ruth Watson '82.

FACULTY RESEARCH GRANTS SET RECORD Ten members of the Trinity faculty have received grants from the College, totalling $40,000. This is the largest amount ever given by Trinity in a single year to its faculty for research. Six individual research grants of $2,750, plus expenses, were awarded. Dr. Frank Child Ill, professor of biology, will study the growth patterns of cilia. Professor of Chemistry Dr. Henry A. DePhillips, Jr. will test the oxygenbinding properties of the respiratory protein, hemocyanin. The CJ.!ltural dynamics in the contact between African religions and Christianity in the New World is the subject of research by Dr. Leslie G. Desmangles, assistant professor of religion and intercultural studies. Desmangles also will be aided in his work by a $2,500 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Dr. Borden W. Painter, Jr., professor of history, will survey the role and function of preaching in sixteenth century Europe. Associate Professor of Biology Dr. J. Emmett Simmons will do experiments to determine hormonal behavior in rats. Dr. Paul Smith, professor of English, plans to continue research on Ernest Hemingway's early fiction, drawing on the manuscript collection at the Kennedy Library in Boston. Four faculty members were awarded junior faculty development grants 路o f $2,000, plus expenses. Dr. Alden R. Gordon, assistant professor of fine arts, will continue work on a book about royal patronage of the arts in eighteenth century France. Assistant Professor of Music J. Wainwright Love III will conduct research on Polynesian linguistics. Dr. C. Kenneth Quinones, assistant professor of history, will study Japanese colonialism and the development of Korean militarism from 18811945. The development of a database system, accessible to the inexperienced computer user, is the project devised by Dr. Hoyt Warner, assistant professor of engineering and mathematics.

INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL REVIVED In the wake of last fall's protest against two fraternities for sponsoring


!Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk social events with sexist overtones, the Administration has encouraged the revitalization of the Interfraternity Council (IFC) to establish guidelines for conduct and disciplinary 路 procedures for the six houses on campus. Under the leadership of IFC President, Marilyn Moore of DKE, the Council has been meeting weekly with Wayne Asmus, the director of Mather Campus Center and adviser to the IFC. Out of these discussions has come better communication between the fraternities and the Administration along with some suggestions for improving fraternity operations. Among the topics. discussed were a cooperative purchasing arrangement whereby the houses could save money through group buying; a bulk mailing permit to reduce postage costs; and an all-campus survey to determine student perceptions of the role and attitudes of the fraternities. The College has also offered to provide the IFC with a series of "learning modules" from the Higher Education Management Institute designed to help the houses improve their techniques of management, leadership and communication. Fraternities have also been asked to provide the College with information on membership policies, hazing, and rushing procedures. This information will be used by the IFC to establish firm guidelines in these areas. Some of the renewed interest in improving the fraternity posture at Trinity has been sparked by happenings on other campuses in the Northeast. At Middlebury, for example, the College has bought all fraternity property, closed all house dining rooms, and instituted strict policies on matters such as rushing, conduct at parties, living conditions, and the serving of alcohol. At Dartmouth, the faculty and fraternities have engaged in a running battle over the past two years on the issues of alleged sexism, antiintellectualism and uncivilized behavior patterns among fraternity members. Dartmouth is also pressing its fraternities and sororities to open their ranks to both men and women. On another front at Trinity, the

Board of Fellows has been conducting a study of fraternities over the past year and is expected to report its findings to the Board of Trustees this spring. Results of this study will be discussed in a future issue of the magazine.

RETRENCHMENT HITS COUNSELING STAFF The only campus controversy of

this spring centered about the Administration's decision to eliminate one of two current positions in the Counseling Center, which provides psychological therapy for undergraduates. As part of the College retrenchment program, Randolph M. Lee, associate college counselor, will be terminated in September 1981 when his position is slated to be eliminated. With Lee's departure, the Center will be staffed solely by its director,

AWARD-WINNiNG POET Philip Levine visited Trinity for a week recently, when, for the third year, the Trinity College Poetry Center sponsored its Frederick L. Gwynn Poet-in-Residence program, assisted by a $1,000 grant from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts. Levine, who this year received the National Book Critics Circle Award for two books of poems, Ashes and 7 Years from Somewhere, gave three well attended public poetry readings and conducted workshops for 25 selected students from Hartford area high schools during his stay. In four two-hour workshops, Levine read the students' poetry and critiqued it. He also conducted a two-hour workshop for a select group of English teachers from these schools. On campus, Levine attended two creative writing classes and counseled about a dozen Trinity student poets individually. Milli Silvestri is coordinator of the Trinity College Poetry Center.

George Higgins. It is envisioned that he will continue to counsel critical cases, while other student service personnel, such as the dean's and chaplain's offices, will take on additional counseling functions. Reacting to the cutback, more than 100 students met with administrative officers to register objections. A major concern was that the level of service would decline under the new setup. Presently, students have access to counseling as often as needed including a 24-hour, 7 day-a-week counseling hotline. In the future, students may have to limit their use of the Center, and it is doubtful that the hotline could continue in its present form. Students also object to the fact that with only one counselor on the staff they will no longer have a choice of therapists. Vice President Thomas A. Smith pointed out to the students that the reduction in counseling was part of a general administrative retrenchment, similar to the faculty cutback of last year. He went on to explain that despite the lower staffing levels, he felt Trinity could provide strong counseling services given the resources available both on campus and in the Hartford community.

INTRODUCING THE CLASSOF'84 The class of 1984 is complete. As the Reporter goes to press, 468 students 245 men and 223 women- have enrolled in next fall's freshman class. The class was selected from a total of 3031 applicants, an increase of slightly more than three percent over the preceding year. In an increasingly competitive era, Trinity's ability to broaden its applicant pool is an encouraging sign. At the same time, applicant yield was slightly below that of the two previous years. Offers of admission went out to 1257 candidates, almost equally divided between men and women. Despite the slightly lower yield, preliminary indications are that the incoming class will be stronger academically than last year's freshmen. The overlap in applications with Ivy League and other highly selective colleges is noticeably higher this year, producing an overall improvement in the caliber of the class.

NEW BOILER, weighing 35,000 lbs., is lowered into place at the Trinity central heating plant as part of College energy conservation program. Replacement of three obsolete boilers with two modern versions is expected to increase heating efficiency by as much as ten percent. The new boilers will burn either oil or gas; installation is estimated to cost about $1.1 million.

Roughly 65 percent of those enrolling come from public high schools; 35 percent from independent schools. This represents an increase of about 6 percent from the public sector over last year. In spite of the drop in the independent school category, the pool of students from these institutions is exceptionally strong, according to the admissions office. Offspring of Trinity alumni continue to do extremely well in the admissions process. Though figures are still incomplete, the percentage of successful appli-

cants from alumni sons and daughters is significantly higher than that of the general pool of candidates. A more complete look at the Class of 1984 will appear in the next issue of the magazine.

BOARD ADOPTS $17.2 MILLION BUDGET At their March meeting, Trinity's Trustees approved a $17.2 million balanced budgetfor 1980-1981, including an increase in total student fees (tui-


Along the Walk Along the Walk Alorig the Walk Along the Walk tion, room, board, and general fee) of $1,000. According to James F. English, Jr., vice president for finance and planning, "this budget reflects a number of underlying forces: accelerating inflation, soaring energy costs, lagging salary levels, and other pressures which have been building up within the current year's very restrictive budget." Next year, tuition will be $5,350, room rent will rise to $1, 140, and board will be set at $1,080. Including fees, the charges will total $7,750. In his budget statement English said, "We are acutely aware of the added pressures these increases will put on many of our students and their families," and added that the increases will be accompanied by a 14.8% hike in financial aid. He also noted that the jump in fees is in liRe with the level of increases at other selective schools in the Northeast. "Trinity's total charges will still be near the bottom of the group of schools with which we are competing for students," he stated.

WATSON FELLOW TO STUDY SAHARA Gary M. Abramson '80, a history major from Newton Centre, Massachusetts, has been awarded an $8,000 Thomas]. Watson Fellowship to study the legal, political and economic issues in the conflict over sovereignty in the Western Sahara. Watson Fellows are selected for their commitment to a particular field of interest and for their potential for leadership. The grants, awarded annually to outstanding college graduates, enable them to extend their knowledge, through travel and independent study, in a particular field of interest. Trinity is one of 48 private colleges and universities invited by the Watson Foundation to submit candidates for the prestigious fellowships. Abramson's grant will enable him to

conduct analysis of the Western Sahara history through interviews with jurists, government officials, economists, journalists, academics and others, as well as through archival research in England, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Morocco, Algeria, and the Western Sahara. At Trinity, Abramson has been a member of the concert choir, Hillel, Conn-PIRG, and the Tripod staff, serving as features editor of the Tripod in his junior year. He spent the fall term of his junior year at the Institute of European Studies in Madrid and last summer taught in an Upward Bound program.

The other principal sources of income, endowment and gifts, are also budgeted to rise substantially. Endowment income is projected to be 13.7% higher; annual giving is expected to go up 12.5%. On the expense side "our principal concern has been salaries and employee benefits," English said. Faculty and staff members will receive salary increases in excess of 11% and improvements in benefits will include the establishment of a dental assistance plan. The instruction budget is slated to rise 13.8% and the library allocation will be up 10.9%. The budget includes an 18.3% increase for utilities, which are projected to cost $1,293,000 in fiscal1980-81. These expenditures for the current fiscal year are running 35% higher than they were in 1978-1979, but improvement is anticipated due to the installation of an energy control management system and new boilers in the central heating plant this year. Describing the new budget as "tight but realistic," English noted that it also "dramatizes the pressures which double digit inflation and runaway energy costs place on a private educational institution like Trinity."

FOUR MEMBERS of the Trinity community who are retiring from service were honored at a reception in May. They are: (left to right) Edward J. K yrcz, assist路 ant to the treasurer (25 years of service); Doris M. Shapiro, serials librarian (14 years); Joseph Mason, security guard (7 years); and Francis "Pat" Flanagan, fore路 man in the athletic department (12 years). Recognized for 25 years of service were: Dr. Richard Benton, associate professor of English; Dr. Edward Bobko, professor of chemistry; Dr. Edmond Cherbonnier, professor of religion; Dr ..Albert Gastmann, professor of political science; W. Howie Muir, director of ad路 missions; Dr. Rex Neaverson, professor of political science; and Dr. James Potter, associate professor of English.

corded Saturday, March 15th, with the first "Career Day" ever held at Trinity. Approximately 100 undergraduates met with alumni from the New York City area for informal discussions and information gathering on careers in advertising, publishing, banking, investments, marketing and corporations. The event was noteworthy in its success, beginning with the excellent turnout by undergraduates, who passed up the opportunity for sleeping late on a Saturday morning to attend. Furthermore, "A definite rapport developed between the students and the alumni," according to Gene Shen '76, who organized the event for the National Alumni Association, in cooperation with the Career Counseling office at Trinity. The day began with coffee and donuts for the attendees and an hour-long group session, in which Shen described the goals of Career Day and introduced the participating alumni. Students were also given a Career Day guide, with biographies of the participating alumni, which described what their activities had been while they were undergraduates at Trinity and what they were

doing presently. Participating in the program were: Michael Diefenbach '77, senior associate in the public finance department ofE.F. Hutton & Company, Inc.; Robert Meyer '77, completing his M.B.A. at Columbia Graduate School of Business, with a concentration in finance; Eads Johnson '76, institutional money market salesman, Morgan Stanley & Company's government bond department; Samuel Corliss, Jr. '76, assistant treasurer, Chase Manhattan Bank, with responsibility for Japanese manufacturing affiliates in the U.S.; Debby Donahue '75, assista nt manager of subsidiary rights and manager of the New York office, Little, Brown and Company, Inc.; James Finkelstein '74, manager, Human Resource Systems, corporate human resources, American Can Company; Wenda Harris '76, merchandising manager, New York Magazine; Constance Hart '74, assistant product manager, General Foods; Gene Shen '76, North American Banking Group, specialized industries division, information systems, electronics and communications department, Citibank; and Scott Rey-

nolds, senior vice president, Bankers Trust Company. The alumni then adjourned to meet with students in small groups, according to their business specialties. During these sessions the alumni outlined their business careers for the students their beginnings, career paths, and the nature of the work they now do. The students were then free to ask questions. After a conversational luncheon, the entire group of undergraduates stayed on in Hamlin Hall to ask general questions. This interlude gave the students a good opportunity to hear reactions and opinions of all the alumni on specific questions of interviewing, job hunting, fielding certain "tough" questions from interviewers, etc. Following this session, alumni again returned to the discussion groups of the morning, so that students could look into additional career interests. The day proved to be even more successful than Shen and the participating alumni had hoped. Shen had originally proposed the idea of an alumni-student career event to the National Alumni

Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Association as a means of expressing "a material show of interest in undergraduates on the part of the alumni." His involvement with Trinity alumni clubs had convinced him that there was "a wealth of experience" that could be useful to Trinity students. The March program is the first in a series of Career Days planned for the future, including programs in law, the health professions and the arts. Though the alumni participating in the initial program were from New York City, Shen notes that future such events will involve alumni from other areas. Alumni who would like to participate in future programs are asked to contact Shen at: 205 E. 78th St., Apt. ST, New York, NY 10021.

ALUMNI FUND NEARS RECORD The Development Office ex路 pects that final responses to the annual fund drive will exceed all sums previously received. With a goal of $460,000 and a deadline of June 30, all signs point to success-not only of achieving that goal, but of coming tantalizingly close to the half-million mark for the first time in the history of the College. Details will' appear in the next issue of the magazine.

EXTERNSEXPLORE WORLD OF WORK Traditional fields like law and medicine still have appeal, butT rinity students are discovering whole new worlds to conquer after graduation. That's one conclusion that can be drawn from this year's very successful externship program, sponsored by the Career Counseling office. Forty-four students, representing all four undergraduate classes, participated in the program, choosing externships in fields as diverse as agrarian research, economic research, world nutrition, and photographic journalism. Eleven of the 44 participants - one out of four -had externships in law. The fields of journalism and medicine were also well represented, with five participants each. Four students chose externships in clinical chemistry and biological research. Architecture and data processing fields drew three students each,

while work in investments, publishing, advertising, and marketing also attracted Trinity students. Externships 路a re non-credit, unpaid experiences in a work situation for one week of the 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. "The externship program's success is due almost entirely to the support we've received from our alumni," says Cheryl Ives, associate director of career counseling. She noted that such support is universal: "Alumni from all different fields have given their time for the program." Trinity was among the first colleges to start an externship program four years ago, and the program has grown steadily. For the student, the externship program offers a special opportunity to look at many different aspects of the j~b he or she is considering: the daily defuands of a certain job - its work pace, the working environment, routine or lack of it; advancement potential, required background, credentials, education; income level; and the lifestyles of individuals in a given career. For most students, the externship experience confirms a desire to pursue a given career; for some, just as importantly, it offers new insights which enable them to conclude that this field is not for them. For sophomore Diana Zantos, a biochemistry major, the externship experience in the physiology lab at Harvard Medical School with Francee Boches was helpful in deciding what her major at Trinity should be. "Before the externs hip," she notes, "I was swaying back to majoring in biology. Talking with the people in the lab made me realize that I was far better off majoring in biochemistry, 'especially ifl wanted to do research." Sophomore Ellin Carpenter, a fine arts/urban studies major, found her sponsor, architect Dave Woodard enthusiastic and encouraging. "I learned more about the practical side of the architect's job," Ellin says, adding, "I also became aware of the many related professions." James Maffiolini, a freshman compu-

ter coordinate major, had his externship experience with Mike Ingram, a systems analyst at Aetna Life & Casualty. He reports: "I was assigned an accounting fixed assets program to design, write, and operate, and I had the assistance of a programmer all the time I needed help. I operated time-sharing terminals, card readers, editing programs, and utilities." Commenting on the externship experience, Maffiolini notes: "The program gives you the chance to try out different types of career sponsors each year, so next year I may try something new." Externship sponsors are similarly enthusiastic. E.W. Woollacott '50, vice president of manufacturing, Combustion Engineering, Inc., said that he thought one of the most positive aspects of the program was "letting the extern, sophomore Russell Willner, talk with the recent graduates in the company to discover what's important and what's not important." Dave Woodard, who sponsored sophomores Ellin Carpenter and Catherine Snodgrass, considers one positive aspect of the program to be "bringing business and college closer together. All forms of business should participate i'n such experiences." Christine Vertefeuille '72, an attorney with Susman and Duffy in New Haven, sponsored freshman Steven Chaneles and notes, "I enjoyed finding out what the student's views were of what he was seeing." David M. Hammaker, vice president, Connecticut Bank & Trust Co. and director of data processing there, sponsored sophomore Michael Brown. Hammaker notes, "I think the program is most useful to the extern as an opportunity to compare his academic knowledge and perception to an external environment. It also provides a basis for comparison and direction for future studies, and an opportunity to consider the practical application of knowledge." Lotte Hershfield, an advertising copywriter with the Catholic Transcript, sponsored junior Karen Merkl for an externship in journalism this year, and had a personal postscript to add about the program: "My own daughter was a Trinity extern in 1978 and not only was it a gratifying and enlightening ex-

Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk perience for her to be in an accountant's office, but it drew a positive reaction from every job interviewer and we feel was most helpful in securing a position."

PRESIDENT LOCKWOOD GRANTED SABBATICAL

8

The Board of Trustees has granted President Theodore D. Lockwood a sabbatical leave, the first since he assumed his presidency in 1968. Effective June 1, James F. English, Jr., vice president for finance and planning, was named acting president. President Lockwood will resume his duties January 15, 1981. English joined the Trinity College administration in July, 1977. A graduate of Yale College, he has a master's degree in English from Cambridge University and an LL.B. from the University of Connecticut Law School. He was appointed president of Connecticut Bank and Trust Company in 1966, was named chief executive officer in 1969, and chairman of the board of CBT in 1970. As vice president for finance and planning at Trinity, English is in charge of longrange planning, oversees the development operations of the College, and monitors the endowment. He retains his position as chairman of the board of CBT.

SUMMERSTAGE OPENS FOURTH SEASON Trinity's Summerstage- Hartford's only professional, resident summer theatre - continues to attract larger audiences and greater critical acclaim each year. Two American plays and a contemporary British comedy- all award-winners- were selected for Summerstage's fourth season, which began in June. The Lindsay and Crouse comedy classic, Life With Father, kicked off the season June 20 and will run until July 6. It will be followed by Tom Stoppard's masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstem Are Dead, which will play July 11-27. The final production will be The Price by Arthur Miller, August 1-17. The first two plays will be directed by

Roger Shoemaker, who is director-inresidence in Trinity's theatre arts program, as well as artistic director of Summerstage. Lawrence Kornfeld, a veteran of 61 Broadway productions and multiple winner of Obie and New York Drama Desk Awards, will direct The

Price. Commenting on his selection of plays, Shoemaker said, "In the past three seasons we've done only two American works. Thus, we were committed this time to choosing some home-grown theatre. Although our comedy season last year was very well received, we decided to vary themix by including the Miller drama." Summerstage's children's theatre, which played to 81 percent of capacity

Parents' Love Helps Trinity By TOM CONDON If you looked closely at Agnes Schirni's well-kept garden on Broad Street in Hartford, you could find ivy that had been transplanted from Trinity College. There was a reason for the ivy, the same reason the.former housekeeper and factory worker left her house and virtually all her money - an estate valued at about $85,000 - to Trinity after her death in 1978. It was all in remembrance of her only child, Ernest William Schirm, a Trinity pre-med student who died in 1938 atter a football injury. The matter was concluded recently in Hartford Probate Court, and the college has received the gift. "It is quite an example of parental love," said Alfred C.

Trintype Dr. Dori Katz's path into the halls of academe was unusual. After graduating from high school in California, she enrolled at Los Angeles City College, with every intention of becoming an accountant. "We didn't have much money, and my only excuse for going to college was to gain some practical skill," she recalls. "I had always loved math, and I enjoyed my accounting classes." But a short stint as a bookkeeper convinced Katz that she didn't want to be an accountant, so she switched her major to merchandising. "But I noticed that I was doing better in my elective, liberal arts courses than I was in business," she says. "As corny as it sounds, the real turning point came for me when I won a contest for a short story I'd submitted, and a professor urged me to take my writing seriously." she is fluent in English and now reKatz went on to earn a B.A. in Engsides in the United States, Yourlish from California State College cenar was eager to find a linguist at Los Angeles, her sights now set with whom she could develop a on being a high school teacher. dose working relationship and "But in my senior year, I heard who was particularly sensitive to about ,the excellent writing prostylistic nuances.

A Soviet Sabbatical Two Trinity historians reflect on their year in Russia.

S

amuel D. Kassow and ]ames L. West, both associate professors of history at Trinity, spent the better part of the 1978-79 academic year living and doing research in the Soviet Union . Their sabbatical leaves were supported by generous grants from the International Research and Exchanges Board, which makes approximately 10 awards per year to senior scholars for study in the U.S.S.R. The Trinity historians lived on the campus of Moscow University and were relatively free to move about the country. Kassow and West returned from their five-month stay with fresh impressions of the Soviet political system, the lives of the typical Soviet citizen, and the challenges which face the regime as it enters the 1980s. Presented here are edited excerpts of a which Kassow and West had with Kathy Frederick, associate editor of the Reporter, last April. KLF: What were your research objectives in going to the Soviet Union? What kind of preplanning went into ensuring that you would get access to the documents you wanted?

WEST: Both Sam and I were on cultural exchange through the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX) . I was doing work on the Russian industrialists of the pre-Revolutionary period. We were two of some eight or ten senior scholars from America on this program. What you have to do to get one of these grants is to enter into an intense competition. You detail, in both Russian and English, your proposal, citing all the archival sources you will need, all the interviews you wish to have. This must be done months in advance . . . . IREX makes its decision; then the Soviets make theirs. I would say that the academic side of the exchange went very well. We got almost everything we needed to get, the archives were all available to us. We saw anybody we needed to see; in other words, the freeze hadn't yet settled in. This year, the reports coming back are that IREX people are being followed; the KGB is watching very closely. The whole circumstance is changed after the Afghanistan invasion.


So, academically, the experience was very fine .... I got much more material than I needed, using the Central Government Archives in Moscow of the October revolutions. But for my wife and myself, on the personal side, it was an absolutely devastating experience. Maybe it's because I'm older now and not as flexible as I was. I had been there for a year before in 1969-1970, as you know, as a graduate student. That experience was a very joyful one. Of course, we've taken several two-week trips since - Sam has taken three; I've taken two from Trinity, we both went on one, but those trips were short and we were very busy. So we went back as scholars this time, and I sort of expected the same excitements, and I began to feel them almost immediately, but I also began to feel other impulses. I'll tell you the kind of things that depressed me very much.

Ten years ago, there was a great deal of hope in that country about the bright future. There were a lot of people who believed that they were marching forward and that things were getting better. My experience was that now that hope is gone among the vast majority of university-trained people whom we were talking to - well, as one young person said to Sam, "We see our lives before us stretching like an empty room .... " Anti-semitism is on the rise, that's a very severe problem and you can see it building up in stages over the last ten years; it's reached a pressure point. And so my wife and I were confronted with people, Jews and non-Jews alike, who universally were dismayed by the failures of their society as they might not have been ten years before, who were cynical beyond belief about their lives and what they could do in that country. That's one issue: their hope is kind of dissipated, the momentum gone. The second aspect is, ironically, an aspect of the liberalization of the regime under American and foreign pressure. This is the possibility for Jews to leave. Now people can leave, somebody has a chance to leave, and therefore everybody wants to get out. Now the Jews are, you understand, the only people who have any legal possibility of leaving. If you go to the office of visas and passports, there are only two windows for emigration- one to Eastern Europe and one to IsraeL There's nothing for the rest of the world. So Jews at least have a moral right to go and say, "I have a cousin in Israel and I have

an invitation so I am going to put in my documents." Even they, of course, face all sorts of obstacles getting out - it depends on what the quota is that month, etc. But our experience was more disheartening with people who were not Jews, many of whom had a very veiled anti-Semitic attitude about this. Saying, "Look, the Jews got us into this revolution in the first place, now they've punched a hole in this Iron Curtain and, by God, we're going to get out through that hole; that's the least the Jews can do for us .... " KASSOW: I want to add a caveat here. Like a glass of water that takes the shape of the bottle it happens to be in, the kinds of people we tended to see, and who wanted to see us, were people who had made their decision, for the most part, to leave the Soviet Union. Therefore, they didn't care whether they jeopardized their careers by socializing with foreigners. I think that for the Soviet system the dominant danger is not the desire to emigrate because I think that still concerns only a rather small minority of the Soviet people - the real trend is toward intensified materialism, intensified search for bourgeois comforts, and the growing disappointment that the regime has failed to carry out the promises of the '60s and the '70s. KLF: When were you first in the Soviet Union? KASSOW: 1967. KLF: Has there been an appreciable change in the position of the consumer since then?

A PEASANT MARKET in Kiev, where produce is sold at market, as opposed to state-controlled prices. Though private plots comprise a very small percentage of the land tilled in the Soviet Union, they supply the bulk of those agricultural products which the state cannot produce effectively, such as eggs, meat, dairy products and fresh vegetables.


THIS CROWD OF SHOPPERS is waiting to gain admittance to a Leningrad department store, where a shipment of nylons from West Germany has just arrived. Advertising wasn't necessary; shoppers learned about the merchandise by word-of-mouth.

KASSOW: There was a great improvement throughout the 1950s and 1960s and the early part of the '70s. From the late '70s onward, the standard of living has stopped growing, and the attitude is, "What have you done for me lately?" There's an anecdote I'd like to tell which is a very important clue to understanding the Soviet Union. "Under Lenin, our life was like walking through a long, cold, dark tunnel - very scary, but we knew there was a light at the end - the goal of world revolution. Under Stalin, it was like riding in a streetcar. Some sat - and sit in Russian means not just to sit, but to sit in jail - others hung, but everybody shook like hell. Under Khrushchev, it was like riding in an airplane at an air show with a crazy pilot, and the passengers got sick not knowing what would happen next because of all his harebrained schemes. Under Breshnev, it's like riding in a taxi. You're not going anywhere you haven't been to before, and the farther you go, the more you pay." And that's the problem in the Soviet Union, that the system is now facing a certain crisis of legitimacy; that is, the system no longer has this obvious goal with which it can galvanize the Soviet people. Stalin had the war, Krushchev had the promise of a better life, which was very important, and for the last five years, the better life hasn't been coming. The Soviet system, as we know it, really began in the 1930s when Stalin changed the country with the five-year plans and it was a command economy that

grew at a very rapid rate, that enabled the Soviet Union to become a world power and that enabled Stalin's successors in the '50s and '60s to have their cake and eat it, too. That is, to get military parity with the United States, but there was enough left over to provide a better life for the people. Now they have to choose between guns and butter. If they just want to maintain the same rate of growth, in consumer standards, they have to cut military spending tremendously. So what you have is a great choice which American policy had a chance to influence but which I think American policy tended to blow because of electioneering. I think the Soviets have now made their choice - to go toward the military at the expense of the consumer. WEST: The system that Stalin established in the country was very good for doing some very basic things, like building an industrial complex, destroying the ancient peasant culture and getting the country going. They are still operating, fun路 damentally, with that mechanism - that military, police apparatus which now is called upon to do some very refined things. They're reaching another level and their instrumentalities are not finely honed enough to carry out the kind of policies to do both - both the guns and butter. Now what I was giving earlier was purely anecdotal evidence from the kinds of people that I would care about. The people I am talking about think like we do, have assumptions about human dignity, the rule of law and freedom ... they are not, however,

13


anywhere near a majority; they are, in fact, a very small minority of the total population. Even the emigres here will tell you that if the Soviets actually opened the frontiers, certainly not more than two percent of the great Russian population would leave. In other words, there is a basic reservoir of good will toward the regime still there. If you look at the statistics, the amount of living space in that country, the amount of oil production, everything is still climbing. KASSOW: Since 1953, the consumption of durable goods in the Soviet Union has increased twelvefold - they've done a tremendous amount. People with a .路 higher education have gone from three million to twelve million. But what I'm trying to get at here is that the Soviet system, Stalin's heirs, were trying to keep different segments of the society happy - pampering the working class- a bus driver makes twice as

leave, and what i heard was a consensus that the system has run out of steam, the system is in stalemate. When I then responded, "That means that something has to give," they said, "No, you think just like a Westerner. Just like a Westerner, you think that stalemate means that something has to change. Nothing might change at all. This might go on for decades." But unlike previous visits, I did not meet one person who thought that the system was working. WEST: Except for the official people. Can I tell you what the official says? We watched Soviet television quite often, and the kinds of things that go on on Soviet television are quite interesting. I like to say that Soviet television is rather like watching a basketball game where the camera is only on the half of the court which is defended by the home team. The home team thunders into the television screen, makes a point,

much as a doctor, for example. As far as nonworkers go, the spigot into the world of privilege has been regulated through the graduate schools. The real dividing line is not between who goes to a university and who doesn't, but who has a graduate degree. Now, classes are no longer being satisfied or bought off by the regime. Despite high pay the workers aren't really happy. So what you're entering into now is a stalemate situation, where the leadership really doesn't know what it wants to do, where there's an imminent transition about to take place, where they're really muddling through. KLF: Sam, to finish up on that other point, were you able to talk to anyone besides the people who had decided to leave or regime loyalists? KASSOW: Through some other contacts, I was also talking to some elements who were going to stay in the country. And going to their homes, I saw their friends, people who weren't planning to

and everybody claps. And then the teams disappear, and there is silence. Then they thunder back and make another point ... you just never see the other half. KASSOW: That's the cancer of the Soviet system. Everybody lies, everybody knows that they are hearing lies and everybody pretends that it's the truth. We were there during the election campaign for the Supreme Soviet and on the television news, they showed electoral meetings, they showed workers all approving and everybody knew, including the announcer, that it was all lies. It's like a cancer. On the one hand, the regime allows its citizens to listen to Western broadcasts, on the other hand it tries to inundate them with propaganda. On the one hand, the regime encourages a sense of consumerism, on the other hand it tries to fight it. The regime is pursuing contradictory policies, even


in foreign affairs. Many American politicians think that the Soviets are this monolith that's systematically grabbing great chunks of the world according to a plan路. But if you were in the Soviet leadership, would things really look that good to you? You will have "lost" China, Sadat threw you out in 1972, all your billions in the Arab world seem to have gone down the tubes, your big investments in Indonesia went down the tubes, the Sudan, Somalia and so on - and so you may feel that time is working against your system. The economy is in trouble - unlike the 1950s when the Third World looked to the Soviet Union, today the Soviets don't have very much to offer aside from military hardware. Except for its military, the Soviet Union is not really respected as a cultural model or an economic model. So the Soviet leadership must be feeling rather confused and paranoid. And there's a great temptation to go to the only option that the

Russians have which is to throw their power around. But behind that power is very little conviction or certainty anymore. It's not like the '30s when thousands of Americans went to Russia to build up the Five-Year Plans. So you have a very dangerous situation of a military colossus without a sense of purpose. Do you go back to Stalinism, start jamming the Voice of America, scuttle detente? I think our politicians have underestimated the impact of detente on the Soviet system. The fact that more Soviet citizens are allowed to travel, even if it is very limited, the fact the Soviet citizens are exposed to Western tourists, the fact that Soviet citizens are exposed to Western ideas. This is a result of detente and it's in our interest to keep this going. The problem is that it pays you politically to take a hard line toward the Russians. It doesn't pay you to say "Let's step back, consider, weigh what we can and

cannot do."

WEST: Detente was a reasoned policy that we managed to stumble into; Sam is absolutely right. The system is losing its sense of direction, losing its sense of moral purity, but that's certainly not to say that it's a system falling apart. Let's put it this way: the basic structure that Stalin erected is still there the military structure, the internal police structure. The Soviet experience over many decades suggests that they could turn around in very short order, conjure up an emergency, declare a war on China. That's one option they have. They could galvanize the country with some sort of national emergency. Thus the perspective that we might have of loss of internal momentum, loss of faith, is not one that we can take much joy in because it suggests that the only other alternative for the regime may be a growing sense of nationalism and expansionism. KASSOW: And we've missed some hist~ric opportunities. We like to say that the Russians are increasing military spending and we have to catch up to them. We forget that in 1972, in the negotiations for the first SALT Treaty, the Russians offered a ban on MIRV s - because we had them and they didn't. And we said "no" because we underestimated their technological ability to catch up to us if they really put their mind to it. So once you had MIRVs, it was that much more difficult to control the arms race, or put a cap on it. And then with the SALT II Treaty - again, it was more disadvantageous to us than what we could have gotten before, but it was still important because it represented not only the principle of arms control, but also the principle that the Soviet leadership could make decisions about capping, or funneling, arms spending. KLF: Is SALT totally lost? WEST: Imagine trying to get it through the Senate this year .. .. KLF: What does that mean to Breshnev? Didn't he have a big stake in detente? KASSOW: I don't think Breshnev is going to be toppled, simply because he's so old and real power is now being exercised by Ustinov, by Suslov. Suslov is an ideological chief, Ustinov is the defense chief. It's not a case of Breshnev versus the militaryindustrial complex. It's rather that Breshnev got to where he is by making all the interest groups happy. He gave everybody everything. He gave the military strategic parity which it lacked under Khrushchev and which resulted in the humiliation of the Cuban missile crisis. But the point is that he no longer has the wherewithal to keep everybody happy. You really have a pro-detente and an anti-detente constituency within the Soviet leadership. WEST: We've set out this conceptual framework of two alternatives, the detente alternative and the retreat to Stalinism. What would be the response of the population to a radical curtailment of standard of living, the reimposition of police controls, to the return of blanket censorship, cutting off of all contacts with the outside world in some kind of national emergency? One of the basic trends which

15


you see, even among young people, but especially among the older generation is, "If Stalin were alive, this wouldn't happen. There was no long hair, everyone knew their place, everybody did their job, there were no jeans, rock music, chewing gum." Not only does the older generation say this, who should know better because they lived through Stalin, but younger people, too, who don't know their history but who share the cult of strong power, who see a weak, vacillating leadership in their country, one that they would not be unhappy to see shift its colors a little bit. It's kind of a veiled protest against the way things are. Just as it's politically easy in this country to return to a hard line against the Russians .... In the Soviet Union, also, it would be a very easy thing to. run on Stalin's ticket. KLF: Do you agree with that, Sam? KASSOW: There's a strong possibility that we are going to see an intensification of this rehabilitation of Stalin. However, there are things which may argue against it. One, the nationalities issue. That great Russian nationalism is fine for the Russians, but it's really going to complicate the question of how you run the Soviet Union. And that is THE ORTHODOX CHURCH is allowed to operate, though religious attendance is officially discouraged. There are 55 active churches in Moscow.

something that, probably, the party doesn't know what to do with. What about the central Asians and the Ukranians, and so on? The other problem is the new scientific intelligentsia may be a small minority of the population, but they are very important for the Soviet Union. They're the only hope the Soviet Union has of really staying abreast in the computer age. These people know about Stalin, they're very anti-Stalinist. In the 1930s and 1940s, Stalinism was possible because to be a great power, you had to have a lot of steel and coal. But in the 1980s when you have to apply technology, and you have to run a very complex economy, can you do so in conditions of terror? Can you compete with the West technologically when your scientific elite is hounded and depressed and persecuted? These are very powerful countervailing forces. The other point is that the party bureaucracy has a very ambivalent attitude toward Stalin. On the one hand, they made their careers under Stalin, on the other hand, it was not much fun being a party functionary under Stalin. You were not a prime candidate for a life insurance policy .... Kosygin was the sole survivor of the Leningrad party organization in 1950, for example. KLF: What is going to happen when Breshnev dies? Will there be a struggle for power? WEST: That's not the central issue. We suspect the focus of power has already shifted. KLF: Why did the Soviet Union invade Afghanistan? WEST: Because their clients were in trouble.


KASSOW: I think it was a case of weakness within the Soviet leadership and a failure of detente, anger at the United States for what the Soviet leadership perceived to be aggr'essive and humiliating policies. KLF: Which were? KASSOW: The thing about the Cuban brigade, linking that to SALT; the decision to deploy the MX missile; the decision to hike the defense budget. It was Carter upping the ante to get votes in the Senate and the Soviets feeling that this was such a humiliation, and that the key to SALT was lost anyway, so what did they have to lose? In the middle of this, they're getting a report from Pavlovskii that they were going to lose Afghanistan, that they'd have to go in, or get out. So it was much like the Vietnam syndrome of '64-'65 - the South Vietnamese can't do it, we either go in or we lose face. Now you have to put yourself in the position of the Politburo in October-November of 1979. SALT looks dead in the Senate, Carter is wielding a very hard line on these missiles, the Breshnev offer of troop cuts in Europe has been ignored. The European allies are pursuing contradictory policies - on one hand, demanding from the United States that they deploy these missiles, on the other hand, telling the Russians that they're not really behind this, that the Americans are, and then the Five-Year Plan is real trouble - the very hardhitting speech that Breshnev makes to the Central Committee in November in effect admitting that the economy is in trouble and singling out names of responsible culprits. In the middle of all 路this, how can the Politburo decide that it is going to l~t Afghanistan go? KLF: Does this situation have the potential for being the Soviets' Vietnam? WEST: No, they're not going to go in with kid gloves the way we did in Vietnam. They will go in with massive forces, and may have it cleaned up in six months. By the way, for my research I'm reading the Russian newspapers from the period before 1914 and there are two countries which were constantly talked about in these liberal periodicals. One was Afghanistan, traditionally their backyard, like Mexico is to us. And how the British were penetrating Afghanistan and how they had to have Afghanistan as a buffer state friendly to the tsarist government. The second country was Iran: how important it was for Russian trade and how the Germans were moving into Iran and how dangerous that would be .... The two countries they were talking about then are the two countries that could set off a world war right now because I have not the slightest doubt that if the Russians went into Iran, that we would have to go to war. Now one of the problems I see in this is ... if I thought they understood the way we think and work, then I would have hope that there would be voices, especially in the Institute of the USA and Canada which is sort of a Soviet "think tank" for specialists in American affairs ... if there were people there who were saying, "Look, Carter is a

politician, this is the way he's operating here, we just have to understand this and bide our time." But there was a book published by that institute about a year ago which was being circulated among the high elite in Moscow which sought to explain, as if for the first time, that the President wasn't the only formulator of American foreign policy. This book argued that Congress actually has some power, and has taken from the President his hegemony in foreign affairs ... as if this were a revelation. KLF: Was it a mistake to invade Afghanistan? WEST: Not from their point of view. KASSOW: I think it was. They've lost another one of their chips - one of their big chips in international relations after they lost the chip of having the secret to economic development, of having a state economy that works, of offering the third world technological expertise. Once all those chips went by the board in the '50s and the '60s, they still had the chip of leading the anti-imperialist camp in the United Nations - against France and Britain and the United States. They had an anticolonialist patina and they've cashed in a lot of that with Afghanistan. WEST: Well certainly not at qome; because everybody at home supports Afghanistan .. . . It seems to me that there is an issue here that would suggest that the Soviets share one thing in common with the underdeveloped world, and that is a bitter resentment of the wealth of the Western countries and a rejection of their liberal parliamentary traditions. Certainly Afghanistan has cost them support in the Arab world in the short run, but five years down the road? I don't think so. Because certainly the drift in the world today toward anarchy and chaos as we have in Iran is triggered by those awesome hatreds of the wealthy capitalist nations which have drained the world of resources for a century. The Soviet Union is always in a position to be on that side of any such anti-Western argument. KLF: Let's talk about our responses to the Afghan invasion. First, the Olympic boycott. Good idea? KASSOW: Good idea. Because the Soviet regime is wrestling with this problem of acute national boredom, of national disaffection. One area that they can share with the people is a two-week festival in which they celebrate Soviet prowess and bring in all the gold medals. And just like war, international sport is an area where their system functions very well . . .. WEST: I'm sympathetic to the boycott. Having recently been there, I have a feeling of just what this means to them, what it would have meant to them. The whole country has been on one "paint-up, clean-up, fix-up" campaign for the past two years. Moscow will now be beautiful. They have been working for literally years so that the foreign guests will have seen the best side. I would perhaps support Carter in one area of his response and that is, basically, its moderation. Because in this country, as we know, it is very easy to be anti-communist, to run against "the Reds,"

and Carter is under a lot of pressure from some very conservative forces - to take a much firmer stand against the Russians. I think perhaps through his own inability to make a decision, he's taken the least disruptive path in trying to make clear to the Soviets our opposition to their invasion. To make known our feelings to the Soviets without military threats seems to me prudent at this time. KLF: Do you agree with charges that Carter is strong-arming our athletes too much? KASSOW: He has to. It would be such a catastrophe, such a national disaster if our athletes defied the President and went to Moscow. Then the Russians would get a double propaganda victory. It's a clear case of the national interest demanding that our athletes not go. It's not fair; if I trained for the Olympics, I'd want to go, too. But once the President says we're going to boycott, you can't have athletes going to Moscow and being treated like conquering heroes by the Soviet press. WEST: That was one of the reasons we cancelled our Russian trip this year - the student trip in March. I could just see us getting into a position where when we arrived in the Soviet Union a TASS correspondent would say, "You representatives of progressive American thought! I want an interview with you." KLF: What about the grain embargo? Good move? KASSOW: That was a mistake. For one, it really undercuts a Soviet policy which was in our longterm interests. Any hope we have of influencing Soviet policy means we have to have interdependence, trade. Without trade, we have no levers on them; we have no carrots to give them. Now imagine Stalin spending precious foreign currency on grain to give the people a better diet ... the fact the Soviet regime did this is a good thing we ought to have encouraged. It was also good for our markets. It was a hasty reaction,. WEST: I would agree ... it's going to have an impact on the Soviet consumer, no question. KLF: Have we done anything else? WEST: An embargo on high technology ... KASSOW: I wouldn't mind certain embargoes on sensitive items like computers, for example. The problem is, they'll buy them from other countries. WEST: You see, Lenin said that the "capitalists" could not maintain a front against the Soviet Union because of competitive conflicts within capitalist society - if the Americans won't sell us tractors, the British will - and of course the Germans and the French are quite willing to sell computers to the Soviets. KLF: What is the attitude of the Soviet leadership about the way we are conducting foreign policy? KASSOW: Confusion. WEST: Vacillation. It is very clear that Carter has not been a strong foreign policy President, and I think their basic attitude is one of bewilderment about what he's done, by his deviations back and forth, they feel they can't trust him, and maybe they're just waiting out the next election hoping someone else will win ... even Reagan, perhaps, for

him they could understand. KLF: Do they think Carter is a weak man they can take advantage of? WEST: Yes. KLF: In contrast to Ford and Nixon? WEST: Yes. KASSOW: Nixon was more their type of leader. They deserved each other. WEST: Yes, and they cannot understand what we did to Nixon. To take a strong leader and destroy him is beyond their comprehension. You can say he broke the law - well, what is law to them? KASSOW: And for wiretaps? WEST: The KGB routinely wiretaps anyone it wishes to. I think with Kissinger and Nixon they felt they had someone they could deal with, who had long-term vision of the world and that cemented detente. And once Nixon was out, once Kissinger was gone, I think the chances for detente already began to dim, as this new administration carne in without long-term vision. KASSOW: As soon as Carter carne in, he started with the human rights business, then with SALT but Carter's first SALT proposal was one the Russians could never accept, and they didn't think he was being serious. WEST: So I would say that detente has been in trouble since Kissinger left, maybe since Nixon left. Maybe that was a hidden cost of Watergate, that we lost a forceful international leader whom the Soviets thought they could deal with and therefore they began to reassess their cards, reshuffle the deck. KLF: What about Congressional reaction to the invasion? WEST: It seems to me that the base line of American foreign policy toward th~ Soviet Union since the Revolution has been one of fundamental anti-communism - sometimes hidden, sometimes latent. The danger is if we give up detente, where do we go? If we give up trying to build up basic areas of cooperation between them some areas of restraint that's why arms control is so important - the only place we have to go is back to the anti-communist position. The possibilities for domestic hysteria, for cold war rhetoric are very strong. Let's put it this way: A George Will saying, "Let's send in the marines" sounds much stronger than a Marshall Schulrnann saying, "Look, we really have to understand these people, and try to get along with them." The language of diplomacy, which is what we've been operating with for the past ten or fifteen years, rather successfully to this point, sounds vacillating, soft, cautious. Certainly, the most dangerous periods in our domestic history in the twentieth century have been those instances where the anti-communist issue really ran away with us. KLF: OK. But many of these Congressional leaders seem to be saying that military superiority to the Russians is our only protection. KASSOW: But it's an illusion, a complete illusion. I'm not saying that we should let the Russians get strategic superiority. There's an argument as to whether they already have it or not. What I .am


19 A STATION STOP of the Moscow metro, built in the 1930's. The subway is safe, clean and very efficient.

saying is that we have to have a clear definition of national interest and military power which takes into account those areas in which we already are superior to the Russians. Like submarines - like anti-submarine warfare, like anti-tank warfar,e. Instead of focusing on all these tanks the Russians have, we should start thinking about the great lead we have in anti-tank weaponry. Instead of focusing on all these land-based missiles the Russians have, we should focus on our great superiority in the cruise missile, and in submarines. These are things which get lost in the debate. I think that neither the Congressional leadership nor the President has been able to fulfill their duty and obligation of educating the American people on the intricacies of SALT why SALT is important. Instead, SALT has become shorthand for cowardice and sell-out. I think neither the President nor the American Congress has managed to show the American people that the ultimate source of strength in a contest with the Soviets is internal strength - how America handles its internal problems. Inflation, the energy problem - these weren't caused by the Russians. These were caused by irresolution at home. OPEC is as great a threat to our national security as is the Soviet Union. But the Soviet Union is a better enemy. If the country is so ready for sacrifices, why can't it sacrifice at the fuel pump? It's because no politician has the guts, and rather than face that issue, they

talk about increasing defense spending, because it enables them to sound tough without really making politically unpopular choices. WEST: You will note that this sounds very similar to what we've said about the direction the Soviet leadership seems to be taking. Determination on both sides to "stand up" to the other may be growing, attitudes hardening in unison. A sobering thought. KLF: What about Carter's human rights policy? When he got into the White Hou.se, he almost immediately began talking about Soviet dissidents. KASSOW: Human rights makes sense only in the context of power politics. To blow off at the mouth about human rights, without clearly understanding how one can achieve this with specific policies and within a specific context of relationships, is irresponsible. The human rights campaign is important only insofar as you have a working structure of detente, where the Soviets have incentives to make certain concessions. Now there's a calibrated hierarchy of human rights. The Soviets will give on Jewish emigration in excha nge for a repeal of the Jackson-Vaneck Amendment linking most-favored nation status for the USSR with an easing of restrictions on Jewish emigration, to take a hypothetical example. The Soviet Union will never give on the demand for a two-party system. There are a few areas where the Soviets will give - they'll release a few dissidents


from jail. However, they will never allow on-site inspections of prison camps by Western reporters. So you should never make demands of a great power you cannot back up ... and that was Carter's big mistake. And, in fact, as detente collapses, the human rights situation gets worse. KLF: What about China? Are they very concemed about our growing relationship with the Chinese?

KASSOW: It would be a great mistake to play the China card. One, because we don't know what's going to happen in China. Two, because it would give the Soviet Union a real reason for a preemptive strike, thereby risking a nuclear war. WEST: At least against the Chinese. Their feelings about China are deeply antagonistic, almost racial. They are a multi-national empire, they deal with Asians all the time, Mongolia is a protectorate of the Soviet Union .... But when my wife, Tina, would tell well-educated Soviets, even the kind who were trying to leave, that she was going to China they would say, "What a terrible place. Why in the world would you want to go to China?" KASSOW: China has enabled the Russians over the centuries to feel European, to feel civilized. When they look toward the east, all of a sudden

20

they become culture-carrying Europeans, and it enables them to feel superior. WEST: You know, with the kinds of scenarios we've been weaving here of a shift toward hard-line policies, the threat of military confrontation, it seems to me to be very foolish to have Brzezinski hefting a machine gun in the Khyber Pass. KASSOW: What a disaster! KLF: What was that? WEST: The picture of Brzezinski with a machine gun in Pakistan on the Khyber Pass at the Afghan frontier, pointing a gun down the road toward Afghanistan. I think it was in the New York Times in January. Or to have Harold Brown talking to the Chinese - very provocative. There, as Sam said, is foreshadowed the ultimate threat for the Soviet leadership: some kind of a military alliance was being forged between the Chinese and ourselves, to give them weapons to do anything on the Soviet frontier. If the Soviet leadership used this threat as a wolf at the door, declared an emergency and told its people: "We must stop the Chinese now while we still can." - I think the vast majority of the Soviet people might well accept this and let themselves be led to war - to a war the consequences of which we could hardly hope to escape. •


Integration Ta~es Uoot in Boston Academic Excellence Blooms After a Controversial Busing Program by Jonathan Kozol

B

using is working in Boston-not because the buses have been painted a bright new yellow, but because the classroom experience at the end of the ride is generally better than anything Boston's schoolchildren have known before. It never was the bus ride that scared parents away from desegregation. The real fear was what the child would encounter after the bus ride ended. .

Now, five years after busing began, the answer is out-and may prove to be the education story of the decade. The truth is that Boston 路never had a chance to have educational excellence until its schools were desegregated. Now it has that chance for the first time in a generation-and desegregation is proving to be a success. Those critics who believed that desegregation would lead to a decline in the quality of education were wrong. So long as parents felt cut off from the public schools, quality education never had a chance. But with busing, the entire school system came under intense scrutiny. The trauma of desegregation compelled Bostonians to experience the upheaval and anguish that excellence in any area of human endeavor forever asks and always demands. For the first time, with the prospect of massive busing to disturb their morning's musing over coffee and the daily headlines, parents started to take a hard look at what was going on inside their children's schools. When parents look hard, school administrators tremble, city bureaucrats shake and archaic systems collapse. Boston's court-ordered busing crisis brought with it the first new schools, new curricula, new books, new goals and new hopes in 100 years. The Boston schools, while moving from racial separation to desegregatiion, have also moved in five years from scholastic mediocrity to educational distinction. Three schools provide a good cross-section of the Boston schools as they exist today. Madison Park High School is an ultramodern "magnet" school of music and the arts. It draws students of all races from all over the city on a voluntary basis by virtue of its excellent academic resources, especially is spectacular music program, which is generously helped by the New England Conservatory of Music, the Boston Symphony and Northeastern University.

Madison Park's drama department draws on a team of professional actors who work-under state, federal and municipal grants-to develop theater arts not as the social property of rich or gifted children, but rather as a vigorous ingredient of every student's experience. The Mario Umana Harbor School is another attractive, ultramodern, magnet school emphasizing science, environmental studies, aviation and medicine. It operates in a close partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the city's international airport. The school has created the most sophisticated course of scientific study for highschool kids that I have ever seen in any nation. "Our goal," says headmaster Gus Anglin, "is to give our pupils a choice that students seldom had before. They can go to college, and we have no doubt that very large numbers will. But we also care about the kids who never even have a hope of college, but who are bright and decent kids and who are getting the opportunity to win a decent job in the new aeronautic or other technological industries that soon will dominate this section of New England." The Mario ]mana Harbor School, like every magnet school in Boston, has a waiting list of applicants from virtually every ethnic background in the city. South Boston High is an ordinary district high school-not a fancy magnet school. It is simply a gathering of hardworking teachers with one of the most resilient and unflappable administrators in the city-and it has pulled off one of the authentic pedagogic miracles of the last five years. In 1974, South Boston High was a "magnet" not for children, but for the international press and for the antibusing crowds of the adjacent neighborhood. Today, the TV cameras of 16 nations are gone and so are the violence and terror that were synonyms for "Southie" in the world press. The school, maintai-ning a steady attendance of 600 to 700 pupils in a dilapidated yellow brick building that belies the dramatic changes taking place within, is no longer fighting the battle of the buses. Racial incidents are rare, and security guards in steel helmets and black leather boots no longer dominate the corridors. Without a strong and steadfast faculty, including many who had taught in South Boston High before the busing issue ever went to court, the school's

largely successful desegregation effort would have failed. The rank-and-file faculty consists mostly of old-time teachers, strong of will and long on loyalty, who are determined to make equal education work in Boston. Credit must also go to an exceptional and sympathetic school administration, and to the cooperation of universities and local corporations. Many critics who predicted disaster are now conceding that the example of South Boston High is a model for the entire city. The school, which 15 years ago was lucky to get 5% of its graduating seniors into college (and, in one year, failed to win admission even for one pupil) last spring was able to send 32% of graduating seniors on to colleges and universities. More than half of that 32% were white kids-'-and mostly from South Boston. It isn't all good news. It couldn't possibly be. There is the vexing problem, for example, of "white flight." Though it has proven to be far less severe than some sociologists first predicted, it has been sufficient to tilt a number of schools from racial balance to a marginal nonwhite edge. This point cannot be passed over lightly. School enrollment has admittedly declined in Boston. White enrollment, moreover, has declined disproportionately to that of blacks. Schools everywhere, however, even in the wealthy suburbs, have experienced a sharp decline in student population in the past few years. The drop, in Boston's case, can be explained by this and many other obvious but fortunately reversible factdrs. For example, there has been no exodus of homeowners. Mortgage rates are one of several reasons why many whites have not chosen to desert the city. Those who sought escape from desegregation opted, instead, for small "white academies" or parochial schools. Both are second-rate at best, and many students-even in the face of parental opposition-are already returning to their former public schools, disheartened with the makeshift offerings of these desperate substitutes for properly taught ethics, history and education. White flight continues, but has significantly diminish ed. With thousands of young white couples settling into newly renovated neighborhoods it seems a safe bet that this city will do for desegregation what it did not long ago for George McGovern: embarrass the nation with its capability to make courageous choices in a time of national confusion. The success of Boston's public sc-hools in carrying out desegregation is without recent precedent in the United States. ¡ How did it succeed? What are the factors that have made desegregation work in Boston? Without question, it was the efforts of an inspired federal judge, W. Arthur Garrity, a man who had the sense and sensitivity to recognize the just demands of 12 black parents who brought suit against the Boston School Committee. In his historic ruling of June, 1974, Garrity ordered the city of Boston "to reverse the con-

sequences of ... unconstitutional conduct and to eliminate all vestiges of the dual system 'root and branch'

" In addition, a combination of shrewd experts and experienced administrators managed to create a democratic p~;ocess whereby parents, students and teachers in all sections of the city were able to participate in desegregation. The virtual elimination of the spoils system in appointments of principals, assistant principals, heads of departments and the like also did much to transform a corrupt and inefficient school system into one of the most professional in the country. The court required that one black teacher or administrator be hired for every newly hired white man or white woman. A lthough the legal goal is racial fair play, one consequence has been an end to patronage and the weakening of the favor-playing powers of the Boston School Committee. There also has been the upgrading of long-Reglected teaching talent, as well as the aggressive seeking out and hiring of new teachers from all sections of the nation. But of all the factors that have made desegregation a success, two of the most important have been the intellectual determination and sheer persistence of 5,100 rank-and-file teachers, who showed that they had the courage not to quit or "transfer out" as times got hard. Finally, the involvement of parents, black and white, turned the tide. Blacks, for survival's sake, long have been pedagogic vigilantes in Boston. Whites, on the other hand, accepted for too longfrom politicians who encouraged race hate-a school system that denied them and their children any ch ance of breaking out of the cycle of inferior employment, low pay and the welfare dole. The courtmandated network of "racial-ethnic parent councils" elected not by the geographical community of a single neighborhood, but by the "community of conscience" that developed within the multi-ethnic parent body that surrounds each desegregated school has given parents a strong voice in the selection of teachers, courses, school curricula and school principals. Full community participation had never existed on a scale so wide or with results so clear as it does today. Desegregation has been made to work in Boston not by famous people, but by persistent parents, diligent teachers and embarassingly decent kids. All the plans, orders and legalisms in the world cannot get around the human factor. Nothing comes out of nothing; and nothing important ever happens without the price of sweat and guts that Bostonians of all races have been willing to pay in the city wh ere the American Revolution began. •

Trinity Hosts Mr. ford Students get a firsthand view of history from a former U.S. president.

~ n the first of May, Gerald R. Ford became the '-'third U .S. president to visit the campus. The two chief executives who preceded him at Trinity were Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Roosevelt delivered the Commencement address in 1918 and received an honorary degree.

Eisenhower, the only one of the three to come to the College while in office, was awarded an honorary degree in 1954 when he spoke at the Fall Convocation. Ford's visitation was not the usual touch-and-go stopover that is characteristic of political figures who

are on the campaign trail. Instead, his visit was , specifically designed to be an educational venture in which the former president spent the better part of his day-long stay meeting with faculty and students in class, seminars and informal conversations. According to J. Ronald Spencer, lecturer in history, who coordinated the day's itinerary, Mr. Ford's presence "provided an unusual opportunity for our students to get a close-up view of national events and presidential decision-making from a man with nearly three decades of experience in Washington. We encouraged undergraduates to think of him as a primary historical resource and to ask him about the many aspects of the recent past of which he has firsthand knowledge." Ford's day at Trinity began with a breakfast for a small group of undergraduates and faculty members, followed by a meeting with students majoring in political science, American studies, history and economics along with faculty from these disciplines. He then took part in a history lecture course, "America Since Pearl Harbor," followed by lunch

with faculty, students and Hartford business leaders. In the afternoon, the former president met with the Connecticut media at a press conference. Later he discussed energy policy and regulation of industries at a joint session of two seminars comprised of 23 undergraduates. His day ended with a public forum in Ferris Athletic Center where he was warmly received by an enthusiastic crowd of 1700 persons. At this session, Ford delivered a prepared address and then responded to questions from the floor for some 40 minutes. In the aftermath of his Trinity stay, many students and faculty commented favorably on Ford's affability and candor, and his willingness to tackle inquiries on a broad range of topics. Ford's most newsworthy statement of the day was his prediction that John B. Anderson's independent candidacy would force the 1980 presidential election into the House of Representatives. Describing Anderson as "able, attractive and articulate," Ford still regarded Anderson's decision to make an independent run as a mistake stating, "I want the people, not the politicians to choose the next president." Throughout the day Ford responded to student probings dealing with a wide variety of subje_cts. On the Nixon pardon he felt he had made the nght decision and said he would take the same action if he had to do it all over again. Asked about the primary system ' now in effect, he deplored its random nature, which he estimated would cost the candidates about $100 million this year. As an alternative he proposed five or six regibnal primaries held within a two-month period. When queried whether he could envision any scenario that would make him the Republican candidate, he replied, "None that keeps ¡me awake nights." As for the Iran crisis, he supported President Carter's decision to attempt a rescue mission, but was unwilling to "second-guess" the president on details of timing or methods. He was also supportive of U.S. policy to admit Cubans fleeing the Castro regime, comparing it to his own decision in 1975 to allow the immigration of 125,000 Vietnamese when the Communist forces occupied South Vietnam. Perhaps his strongest comments were aimed at the Congressional approval of the War Powers Act, which requires a president to consult with Congress before taking military action that might lead to war. He criticized Congress for its "blatant encroachment" on the constitutionally mandated power of the presidency, and indicated that the erosion of the chief executive's authority seriously limited his ability to take "prompt and effective action in times of crisis." The former president's visit was sponsored by the departments of economics, history and political science, in cooperation with the American En- . terprise Institute (AEI), where Ford has been a dtstinguished fellow since leaving the White House in 1977. AEI is a non-profit, publicly supported educational and research organization located in

Washington, D.C. Trinity is the 59th educational institution Ford has visited in his role as a fellow of the Institute. •

Though former President Ford generated the most headlines, he was only one of several distinguished campus guests during the past year. Academic departments and campus organizations brought a wide variety of noted lecturers and performers to the College. Women's History Week, Afro-American History Month, and the tenth anniversary of coeducation at Trinity prompted extensive programming by students and faculty. Eight departments and programs joined forces this spring to commemorate the twenty-fifth an¡ niversary of the Brown desegregation decision. This resulted in a moving presentation by the distinguished psychologist Dr. Kenneth Clark, and an exciting roundtable discussion with representatives of South Boston High School, the National Book Award-winner Jonathan Kozol, and Connecticut State Commissioner of Education Mark Shedd, among others. Former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Juanita Kreps asked whether economics as a discipline is in hopeless disarrayal at the annual Mead lecture, while trustee Brenton Harries '50, president of Standard and Poor's, analyzed the bond market at the Ferris lecture. The Vietnam War- a childhood memory to current undergraduates was hotly debated by authors Gareth Porter and Guenter Lewy. Visiting writers included leading black novelist Toni Morrison, while the Poetry Center enjoyed a ten-day visit by one of America's foremost poets, Philip Levine. Tennis pro Arthur Ashe spoke about careers in business, and Jerry Rubin relived his days as an anti-war activist in the '60s. The Austin Arts Center continued to provide outstanding entertainment in theatre, dance and music. Memorable performances included Emlyn Williams' one-man show, "Dylan Thomas Growing Up," and a recital by the Sara Rudner Dance Ensemble, which was in residence at the College for three days in February.

MEN'S LACROSSE===:===:===:===:::=

WOMEN'S LACROSSE::::::::==:===:==:

Outscoring opponents by a 174 to 127 margin, the men's lacrosse team enjoyed its best season ever and posted an 11-2 record. The season included Trinity's first appearance in the ECAC finals, after two years of elimination in the semifinals, and the offensive rampage of junior Scott Growney, who set new career and season scoring records. Preseason competition opened with a cochampionship in the Suncoast Tournament in Florida where the Bantams shared the title with Williams. This success spurred Trinity to three regular season wins up north, but Williams halted the win skein with a 14-13 overtime victory, despite Growney's six goals and three assists. Trinity won its next seven games for a 10-1 record and the right to take on second-seeded Williams in the ECAC New England tournament. Although seeded third, the Bantams never trailed the Ephmen as Growney and senior Bob Plumb shared scoring honors with three goals and two assists apiece in the 12-11 victory. As a result, Trinity moved into its first championship game ever against top-seeded Middlebury. Middlebury gained the final round by defeating Babson 31-8, a team Trinity had beaten in the regular season by just three goals. The championship matchup proved to be far more competitive than a comparison of scores would indicate. In the third quarter, the score was deadlocked at 8-8 and it appeared that the teams would trade goals until the final whistle. However, Trinity was hit by late injuries to five starters and Middlebury pulled away to a 17-10 victory. The Bantams ended the season ranked eighth in New England for all divisions. Growney's 43 goals, 30 assists, and 73 total points were new season records and his three-year total of 141 points is a new career scoring mark. Sophomore Jamie Birmingham's 26 assists also broke the old assist record and he was the second-leading scorer with 46 points. The graduation of seniors Bob Plumb and Doug Bennett will leave a tremendous gap at midfield. A prolific goal scorer, Plumb had 32 goals and 7 assists this season. Bennett, the team's captain, scored 31 points. Junior Peter Duncan, with 34 points, will be the top returning scorer at midfield. Sophomore Gregg Caserta, who saved 61.5% of the opponents' shots, also returns in goal.

In their first losing season in several years, the women's lacrosse team struggled to a 4-5-1 record. Coach Robin Sheppard's squad put on its best performance in the last game of the season, upsetting Ivy League rival Brown 12-11. Sophomore Lee Nolen was the top scorer with 36 goals and six assists. Dottie Bundy, a junior; finished second with 27 goals and six assists. In the 25-7 win over Connecticut College, Nolen and Bundy fired in nine and eight goals, respectively, and Nolen tallied the winning score against Brown with just thirty seconds remaining in the game. Seniors Katie )ebb, Kathleen Fell, and Laurie Fergusson also contributed offensively. )ebb scored 13 points while Fell and Fergusson each totalled 12. Captains Lisa Parker and Jane Dwight, both seniors, anchored the defense. Parker was voted the Most Valuable Player Award by her teammates. Freshman Anne Collins and junior Anne Madarasz shared goaltending duties. Madarasz played well toward the end of the season and stopped 12 shots in the big win over Brown.

SOFTBALL====:===:===:===:===:==: The women's softball squad won only once in eight games for coach Sue McCarthy. The lone victory was a 25-7 win over Northwestern Community College. Inexperience was a big factor this season as Carol McKenzie and Cathy Anderson were the only seniors on the team. McKenzie, the team's captain, set 14 offensive records over four years including her .667 batting average this season and a .421 career average. She holds 11 defensive records at third base. Anderson finished with a .311 career batting average. Returning members of the team also exhibited prowess at the plate. Junior Marcie Lerner and freshman Terry Johnson hit .409 and .375 respectively. Janice Kunin, a sophomore, batted .269 but was named the Most Valuable Player for her defensive abilities as a catcher. Freshman outfielder Anne Ginsburgh was selected as the most improved player.

MEN'S TRACK:::::::::====== The men's track team recorded just one win in


five dual meets. Despite the team's poor showing, coach Rick Hazelton produced top efforts from several individuals, including team captain and Most Valuable Player Jeff Mather. Mather concluded his senior season as one of Trinity's most successful all-time performers. Excelling in the weight events, he finished in first place eleven times this year. Mather broke his own discus and hammer records, eclipsing the discus mark at the New England championships with a throw of 162' 10" which w:as good for fourth place ahead of all Division III contenders. A record also fell in the javelin competition, where junior Chip McKeehan threw 198' 4". McKeehan trailed Mather with four first-place finishes, an honor he shared with freshman Bruce Zawodniak. Zawodniak earned points in the high jump, leaping 6' 2" for the team's best effort of the year. The second highest point total was registered by freshman Pat Lyle in sprint events. Alex Sherwood and Rob Rasmussen paced Trinity in middle distance races while Bob Williams led the way in distance competition. Scott Nesbitt and John Brennan were top hurdlers with Brennan qualifying for the New Englands. The Bantams were represented in the jumping events by Paul Merrigan and Dave Smith. f

WOMEN'S TRACK===:===:===: Faced with a small turnout in its second year as an informal sport, the women's track team posted a 2-3 mark. Only twelve women competed this season and the lack. of depth kept the team from a better record. Sophomore Kathy Schlein continued to impress coaches Hazelton and Karen Erlandson as one of the top 800-meter runners in New England. She lost just two races all year and captured the NESCAC championship. Matched against entrants from all divisions, Schlein finished twelfth in the New England tournament with a Trinity record time of 2.18.3. Julie Behrens also qualified for the New Englands. The sophomore's qualifying time of 27,7 set a Trinity record for 200 meters. Another record fell to Lanier Drew. Drew broke the mile mark in a time of 5:29 just days after completing the torturous Boston Marathon.

MEN'S TENNIS==:==:==:==:==:::==

JEFF MATHER '80 placed sixth at the Division III national track and field championships, throwing the discus 163 feet to establish a new Trinity record. Mather earned AllAmerican honors, bestowed upon the top six finishers, for the first time in his four-year career.

After an inauspicious 2-4 start, the men's tennis team rallied to achieve a winning record and earned distinction at the NCAA Division III tournament. For coach George Sutherland, it was his second consecutive winning season and the first time that two of his players received All-American honors. Trinity's surge began with victories in five of the last six matches. This momentum was noted by other New England coaches who selected co-captains Jamie Brown '81 and Drew Hastings '82 to compete in the national tournament along with freshman Steve Solik.

31


In the Division Ill championships at Claremont College in California, Brown and Hastings were eliminated in the first round of singles action. However, Hastings teamed with Solik to advance all the way to the semifinals of doubles competition, only to fall to number two seed University of California at San Diego, 7-6, 7-5. Hastings and Solik had defeated the third seed, Claremont-Mudd, in the quarterfinals. Due to the fine showing in national competition, Trinity was ranked the top small college team in New England and could still be listed in the top ten nationally. Individual honors were bestowed upon Hastings and Solik who were selected to the 1980 All-American team. With two All-Americans returning and the absence of seniors on the squad this spring, the outlook for next season is very bright.

32

The golf team fell to a 2-5 record this spring despite some close matches. Senior Rob Golding and junior John O'Connell captained the team that defeated Assumption and arch-rival Wesleyan. In the University of Hartford Invitational, coach Ted Coia's Bantams finished ninth of eleven teams. Trinity improved its standing in New England competition to twenty-eighth place out of 38 teams . Senior David Koeppel received the Wyckoff Golf Award for the second time in three years. A four-

year letterwinner, Koeppel captured the award by winning the annual intra-team tournament. The story of the year was the play of freshman Sarah Koeppel. She was the first woman to compete on the men's team in the history of golf at Trinity. Although she never fared as well as her brother David in men's play, Koeppel captured third place in the Women's New England Intercollegiate Golf Championships just three strokes behind the winner. Over 40 women competed in the tournament.

BASEBALL=============== The baseball team slugged its way to the best season in recent years with a 9-10-1 record. The key to its success was the rejuvenation of the Trinity bats as the Bantams hit .319 and pounded a record 13 home runs out of the park. A 2-1-1 preseason record against the Philadelphia Phillies' minor league team was a sign of Trinity's improvement since last season's 2-12 squad. Three losses to strong Florida colleges opened the season but Trinity never again lost more than two consecutive games. Bantams rebounded to defeat Williams 10-2 in the northern opener and went on to post a 9-7-1 record in New England competition. Sophomore Pete Martin was named both the Most Valuable Player and the starting first baseman on the New England All-Star Team. He led the team with a .408 batting average and 23 runs batted in.

Sophomore centerfielder Todd Dagres. tied a Trinity record by hitting five home runs, including two grand slams, while batting .370. Leftfielcler Frank Netcoh, the lone starting junior on the squad, hit .350. Netcoh will captain the 1981 team which will be full of young players like catcher Nick Bordieri who hit .348 this year as a freshman. Coach Robie Shults will have to replace three key seniors to improve upon this year's performance. Len Lortie started at several infield positions during the last four years. During that time, Bill Lynch was the ace varsity pitcher. Lynch appeared 1n a record 37 games and recorded a 3.11 earned run average. Bob Almquist, another four-year veteran, hit .381 this season and concluded his career with a .335 lifetime average. He stole a total of 33 bases and set a Trinity record this season with four thefts against Williams. With the exception of Lynch, the pitching staff returns intact. Freshman Mike Shimeld, sophomores John Valencia and Kevin Doyle, and juniors Mike Goss and Nelson Toner gave up just 3.3 earned runs per game and should improve on that figure next year.

CREW================= After a highly successful regular season, Trinity was runnerup to the Coast Guard Academy in the Dad Vail national championships on Philadelphia's Schuylkill River. Coast Guard recaptured the Bratten Trophy, symbolic of a national team

championship, in the final event of the day and avenged last year's loss to the Bantams. Despite losing the team title, Trinity's varsity lightweights and varsity women's crew rowed to national championships in their events. Head coach Norm Graf entered nine crews in the Vail Regatta. The varsity and freshmen heavyweights, and the varsity women had enjoyed undefeated regular seasons. Victories in the Emerson Cup and Mason-Downs Regatta highlighted the varsity heavyweight record. For the women, it was their second consecutive unbeaten year. The varsity and freshmen lightweights posted identical 5-1 records and the men's four was also once-beaten in the regular season. Only the junior varsity lightweights suffered a losing record, but they often competed against heavyweight crews. The junior varsity women and the pair both had even won-loss records. At the Vail, Trinity qualified seven boats for Saturday's semifinal and final rounds with only the pair and the four failing to advance. On Saturday, the varsity women won their semi-final heat but the varsity heavyweights failed to qualify for their finals despite being considered a favorite to capture the event. Fifth-place finishes in the finals by the junior varsity women and the freshmen lightweights were followed by the sixth-place finish of the previously undefeated freshmen heavyweights. Although their chances for a second team championship were now severely jeopardized, the Bantams mounted a late charge.

33


The varsity lightweights avenged their only loss of the season by crushing Coast Guard in the finals. Then, the varsity women concluded a perfect season by finishing over six seconds ahead of the second place crew. With two races remaining, the score was 36-35 in Trinity's favor. A victory by the varsity heavyweights in the consolation finals gave Trinity a 42-35 lead. Coast Guard's fourth-place finish in the heavyweight finals, however, was enough to give the Cadets a 4442 victory and their sixth Bratten Trophy in seven years.

Quad Wranfles A Retirement

N

ot long ago we were invited to pay our respects to a colleague ending a distinguished career in higher education at the tender age of thirty-nine. Joining us at this gathering were associates from the other eighteen independent colleges in Connecticut. It was a tough evening. This was not your typical retirement party- one of those nostalgic affairs where a popular mentor reminisces before an appreciative a~dience of former cronies and students. Instead, the atmosphere was notably somber, prompted, no doubt, by the fact that the retirement was clearly premature. After all, how many of us are ready to cap our careers before we are forty? On this occasion, the reluctant victim of early retirement was not an individual but an institution, Annhurst College. A small, coeducational, liberal arts college in the northeast corner of Connecticut, Annhurst saw its enrollments decline in recent years to the point where tuition income would not support the financial burdens of the College. Faced with a $4 million debt, the trustees voted to close the doors; the 180-acre campus is now for sale. As we sat that night and "officially noted" the passing o'f Annhurst, the impact of the event was sobering. It's one thing to read gloomy predictions of declining student pools and college closings in the educational journals; it's quite another thing when these forecasts become reality so close to home. If Annhurst has a legacy for the eighteen surviving independent colleges in the State, perhaps it is to heighten our awareness of the realities of the educational marketplace. In remarks to her assembled colleagues, Sister Helen Bonin of Annhurst urged the independent institutions to avoid cutthroat competition among themselves. Colleges should "complete one another rather than compete needlessly in the years ahead," she observed. Her point is worth developing. Obviously, faced with a shrinking candidate pool, colleges cannot avoid competing with one another for students. At the same time an institution owes it to itself-and to its prospective enrollees-to develop a special sense of its strengths and distinctive qualities. Instead of trying to look exactly like the competition, we might better concentrate on what we do well and build on those programs. Through cooperative arrangements with other institutions, we can eliminate duplicate or weak offerings in favor of developing existing strengths more fully. In other words, avoid needless head-to-head competition in favor of establishing a more limited range of programs that is truly distinguished. Such an approach,

we feel, will be in Trinity's best interests for the remainder of the twentieth century. Annhurst will not open in the fall. Perhaps the immediacy of this fact will not be lost on the institutions that continue to survive. And surely we can gain sustenance from the presence of Annhurst graduates schooled in the liberal arts tradition. Through their contributions to Connecticut's future generations, the inheritance of Annhurst will remain alive.

A Resurgence

T

here are those who insist that this generation of students is apathetic; the campus response this spring to the lure of presidential politics may help to dispel the myth of undergraduate torpor. Sparked by the presidential primaries in Connecticut and neighboring states, Trinity students rallied around their favorite candidates. Activities included a two-night program of debates; a series of studentgenerated position papers on various candidates, published in the Tripod; and a host of mundane, but vital, campaign tasks, both on and off the campus. The largest political organization-about 75 students-turned out for Congressman John Anderson. Students we talked to cited his directness, ethical appeal and anti-draft stance as qualities that attracted young voters. Senator Kennedy and George Bush also had strong support on campus; President Carter, Governor Reagan and Senator Baker attracted somewhat fewer adherents. It was the Anderson group, however, that was the most visible. These students worked at the Hartford headquarters; campaigned on other campuses in town; and passed out literature at local businesses.路 They also ran a shuttle service from campus to City Hq.ll as part of a registration drive that netted some 100 new voters. Perhaps their finest hour was on election night when the Republican State Chairman publicly credited the Trinity contingent for Anderson's victory in the City of Hartford. Kennedy volunteers, though fewer in number, were equally zealous. A number of students worked on the Senator's Connecticut campaign and several others traveled to Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania to work for Kennedy organizations. Perhaps the ultimate political trip at Trinity this year was taken by Senator Kennedy's daughter, Kara, who is a sophomore. She took the past semester off to hit the campaign trail with her father. The spring dose of politics may be the perfect antidote for the "laid-back" virus of the seventies. Come fall, we hope for a full-blown political fever.

I've received a long and informative letter from our classmate, NATE BIENSTOCK, dated at Los Angeles. Nate owned a very extensive insurance business in New York City which he disposed of in 1973 following doctor's orders and he now maintains an office in Los Angeles which he visits from 10 in the morning until after lunch. Nate writes that he is very proud of his grandchildren. The eldest graduated from Harvard Law School cum laude and is associate professor of law at Northeastern University in Boston; the second graduated from Hastings Law School at the top of her class last year and is now secretary to the federal judge at Sacramento; the third is studying opera; the fourth majored in Japanese at college, spent her senior year in Tokyo on a fellowship, and is now a producer for a J apanese film company; the fifth starts college this fall. Nate, you have reason to be proud of such grandchildren. A recent address change shows HENRY BEERS at 5000 E. Grant Road, Tucson, AZ. Henry, as we know, was president of the Aetna Life & Casualty Insurance Company before he retired and brought that company into first P-OSition, ahead of the many Hartford insurance companies. A recent obituary in the Hartford Courant was that of JACK AINLEY, class of 1925. A classmate of our CHARLIE MULLER at the Trinity Chapel School in New York City, he became a casualty actuary with the Travelers Insurance Companies after graduating from Trinity. At Travelers, he was in the company of such other good casualty actuaries as the late SYD PINNEY '18, HAM BARBER '19, and ART MATTHEWS '21. Your SECRETARY has resigned after three-and-a-half years on the board of managers of the Edmond Town Hall in Newtown. Class Agent: Louisa Pinney Barber

The CONNIE GESNERs have been seen making the 55-mile trek from Longmeadow, MA, to the ABNER NEWTONs in Durham, CT. quite often of late. I wonder if the good bishop is endeavoring to convert Congregational Durham into an Episcopal stronghold! In January a crew from Hartford's Channel 3, WFSB-TV, descended upon your SECRETARY's 12:15 YMCA calisthenics class, resulting in more publicity for him. However, when the scene appeared on the station's news for the day, they omitted a very important part, in my judgment. I was interviewed and asked my age, which I willingly granted, but when I continued to tell the world at large that my next birthday was April 27th and that birthday cards be sent me with green legal tender enclosed therein, that' portion (for some reason or other) was expunged. It sure is difficult to make an extra buck these days! How about dropping me a line? You can't have arthritis so bad that you can't pick up a pen and write us. Class Agent: Sereno B. Gammell

An interesting note from STAN BELL, received just too late for the R eporter's winter issue, tells me of a great 50th wedding anniversary celebration last year in Bermuda with his wife Ginny, and his daughters and their husbands, all of whom had their honeymoons there! He also reported twin grandsons in Maine and an overnight visit with BOB and Priscilla CONDIT at their Lake George summer home. Talk about proper timing! ANDY and Ann FORRESTER, after a no-snow November, December and January in West Hartford, took off for their annual Florida vacation just a couple of days prior to a six-inch dump of the white stuff from Mother Nature. Surely seems like a good omen for them to enjoy a happy change of pace in living. And now, just a reminder that your SECRETARY would appreciate any kind of news from you which might be of interest to our too-few remaining classmates. Class Agent: Rev. Robert Y. Condit

Charles Fenwick '70 overcomes hurdles in Grand National win

Investment banker Charles Fe'Tir wick, Jr. '70 is described in racing parlance as an amateur jockey, but he's proven himself to be a firstclass pro in the rigorous sport of steeplechase_ In March of this year, he won the granddaddy of them all - the Grand National Steeplechase at Aintree Race Course in Liverpool, England with his horse, Ben Nevis, a 40-1 outsider, finishing 20 lengths ahead of the second-place finisher. Fenwick is only the second American rider to win the event in 137 years. The 4 1/2 mile Grand National has been described as the "toughest, roughest, most dangerous steeplechase in the world," and this year only four of the 30 starters finished the grueling race. The course is characterized by wide ditches, steep drops and sharp turns. There are 30 huge fences of thorn hedges to be surmounted; typical of these treacherous points is Becher's Brook, which is a 5-foothigh hedge with a 6-foot-deep ditch on the landing side. "It was a fantastic ride," Fenwick said after the race. "Everything went according to plan. The horse didn't make a mistake; he was strong all the way. He jumped bravely. I may not have been the

most stylish, but I was very fit. It was a real thrill." This was only the second try by Fenwick at the Grand National. Last year he also rode Ben Nevis, but the horse was brought down after jumping a fallen horse and landing on top of the fence at The Chair, which is another treacherous spot on the Aintree course. There a ditch six feet wide lies in front of a hedge more than five feet high. In '79, Ben Nevis was the only U.S. entry in the Grand National. The 12-year-old horse had been unbeaten in the U.S., but had failed to win in 12 races in Britain. Fenwick had twice before ridden Ben Nevis to victory in the Maryland Hunt Cup, which is the U.S. equivalent of the Grand National. The Maryland event is the fastest, toughest race over timber fences in the country; usually only a few horses finish. Fenwick, who has also won the Monmouth County Hunt Cup, is the former American amateur champion. Fenwick rides Ben Nevis for his father-in-law, Redmond C. Stewart, Jr. Fenwick and his wife, the former Ann Stewart, and their children live in Glyndon, MD. Fenwick is a ,partner of Alex Brown & Sons, investment bankers.
