Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk RETURN OF THE LEMON SQUEEZER

2

After more than a ten-year hiatus, Trinity's traditional symbol of class identity and school spirit - the lemon squeezer - was unveiled by College officials at Convocation ceremonies this fall. In one of his first official public acts as chief executive, President English presented the original, 1857 squeezer to a representative of the Class of 1982, with the stipulation that the relic be passed on to a successor class next spring. Until then, the lemon squeezer is in the safeke~ping of archivist Peter Knapp. Given the turbulent history of the lemon squeezer, it's no surprise that College officials want to keep an eye on it. The squeezer - a hinged, wooden apparatus used to make lemonade or planters punch - has been subjected to countless indignities over the last century-and-a-quarter. It has been stolen, tossed, lost, duplicated, and, in 1895, spirited away by a man on horseback, not to reappear for more than fifty years. The lemon squeezer originated with the Class of 1857 who voted to bestow it upon "that Class, still in college, whose aggregate excellence in scholarship, moral character and the qualities requisite to popularity was the highest." The first winner was the Class of 1859. After '61 and '63 were awarded the squeezer, the conviction took hold that only odd-numbered classes were to be so honored. When '63 overlooked the large and popular class of 1864 in favor of the current sophomores, members of the two even-numbered classes disrupted Class Day exercises and tried to steal the squeezer. Through the combined efforts of '63, '65, the faculty, and local police, the melee was squashed, but a tradition of "bad sportsmanship" been established. For several decades in the 1870s1890s, the squeezer passed on in orderly fashion. The famous 1895 heist occurred when a shunned class, that of 1896, swiped the squeezer from the speakers' desk at Class Day exercises, carried it through the corridors of Northam Towers, and tossed

it out a window to a horseman who was waiting below. Though worn-looking lemon squeezers continued to be awarded on subsequent Class Days, the suspicion was strong that there were now several squeezers in existence. It was not until 1948 that Arthur Humphries '04 came forth with the legendary lemon squeezer, which was then pilfered from the library in 1952 and the Chapel in 1954. In 1969, Mount Archer '55 surrendered the original to members of his class, who presented it to President Lockwood at the annual alumni association lun路 cheon. That paddle-shaped apparatus

had not been seen by the public until President English offered it to the Class of 1982 in September. According to Peter Knapp, the College archives now contain "a number" of lemon squeezers, including the one that is supposed to be the original. Knapp had even numbered the squeezers, according to age, and was fairly confident that he had the whole matter settled until John Nolan '29 showed up in his office some weeks ago. Nolan had read about the revival of the lemon squeezer tradition in the Hartford Courant, and decided to come forth with the half-squeezer he had kept


Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk since 1928. That squeezer, which Knapp conjectures is part of squeezer number 3, had been torn apart in a spirited battle between members of the classes of '29 and '30 in 1928. The late RobertS. Morris '16 faithfully chronicled the details of the lemon squeezer legend in articles which appeared in Trinity alumni magazines in 1952 and 1969. It remains to be seen whether the Class of 1982 will add another exciting chapter to that story.

MELLON GRANTS COLLEGE $300,000 Trinity has received a $300,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to help sustain and renew the College humanities faculty in the coming decade. The grant, one of a group of" 1980s Funds" given to leading private research universities and a limited number of colleges, is intended to counteract pressures that could either discourage talented men and women from entering the academic world, or force others to leave the field. These forces include a continuing contraction of the academic job market, imbalances in the agestructure of faculties and in tenure commitment, and delays in retirements made likely by new retirement legislation. Educators believe these problems, combined with inflation and steady or declining enrollments, will tend to limit the number of job openings and possibilities for promotion during the 1980s. In the Foundation's view, this will "seriously weaken a capital resource not easily rebuilt." The grant to Trinity will be used to provide money especially for appointing or promoting junior or intermediate-level faculty in the humanities in anticipation of retirements now expected in the late 1980s (before the retirements take place); for helping junior faculty to gain further background in their fields; and for assisting senior faculty members who wish to take early retirement or reduce their teaching obligations. The College is expected to invest the fund for a high rate of return, and spend

both principal and interest over a tenyear period. Thus, the grant should generate about $55,000 a year for these purposes. According to former Trinity president Theodore D. Lockwood, who was instrumental in getting the Foundation's support, "This grant is an excellent example of the way a private foundation can use its funds creatively to counter troublesome trends in higher education. With colleges and universities struggling against inflation and unable to encourage younger faculty, it is important to take steps now to develop that next generation of scholars who will be our senior faculty members in the 1990s. Indeed, without the Foundation's help, some of our next generation of teachers might be lost."

ANNUAL FUND BREAKS RECORD After a record-breaking performance last year of $827,524, the Annual Fund goal for 1981-82 has been set at $900,000, according to Edward A. Montgomery '56, chairman of this , . year s campatgn. "Last year, forty percent of our alumni contributed to the campaign, along with friends, parents and corporate givers. If we can increase the participation by all these groups this year," Montgomery said, "we should go well over our goal. With a superb effort, we could even achieve the $1 million mark for the first time in Trinity history." Leadership for this year's campaign was announced at the Fourth Annual Class Agents Conference, held on the campus in September. Those participating and their goals are as follows: Robert C. Knox III '63, Alumni Fund ($650,000); Gail Winslow Ginsburgh, mother of Carolyn '82 and Ann '83, Parents Fund ($110,000); Donald G. Conrad, executive vice president of Aetna Life & Casualty, Friends of Trinity Fund ($60,000); Leonard E. Greenberg '48, chairman of Coleco Industries, Inc., Business & Industry Associates ($80,000). Also named to top fund posts were: Peter A. Hoffman '61 who will head

the alumni Founders Society effort, and A. )ones Yorke IV, father of Bryan '82, who will chair the parents Founders Society. At the recent Class Agents Conference, the final tally for 1980-81 was announced by Frank W. Sherman, director of annual giving. Results were as follows: Alumni Fund - $589,672; Parents Fund- $101,925; Friends of Trinity Fund - $58,312; Business & Industry Associates- $77,615 . These gifts, when added to other contributions to the College, brought the giving total for the past year to $3,166,887.

NEW CHALLE.NGES FOR LOCKWOOD Former Trinity President Theodore D. Lockwood has been named to head the United World College of the Southwest, a new institution scheduled to open in September 1982 in Montezuma, New Mexico. He has also been appointed by the Association of American Colleges (AAC) to direct a three-year review of the baccalaureate degree in the United States. Lockwood's new post as director of the New Mexico college evolved out of his role as a consultant over the past year to Prince Charles of England, who serves as president of the United World Colleges. The idea for such institutions was originated by Lord Mountbatten, who envisioned the establishment of several colleges around the world designed to bring together young people from various countries. Students work intensively for two years preparing for an international baccalaureate degree, and engage in community activities and outdoor training. The first such college, Atlantic in Wales, began in 1962; Lester B. Pearson College of the Pacific in 1974; and Singapore in 1975. Students enter at the beginning of their senior year in high school and engage in a highly structured program of languages, social science, laboratory science, art and music. At the completion of the two-year program, graduates normally enter American universities as sophomores, or international universities as first-year candidates.

According to Lockwood, the United World College of the Southwest will open in September 1982 with an enrollment of 100 students, 25 of whom will be Americans. Faculty will be drawn from many different countries and will number 15 at the outset. The site is at about 7,000 feet elevation on the e~stern slopes of the Rockies about an hour from Santa Fe. Facilities include a former hotel built by the Santa Fe Railroad at the turn of the century, and dormitories built by the Catholic Church when a seminary occupied the grougds. Funding for the new enterprise has been provided by Dr. Armand Hammer, chairman of Occidental Petroleum, a devoted supporter of international education. The Lockwoods plan to move to New Mexico this fall to begin preparations for the college's opening. On his second assignment, the study of the baccalaureate degree, Lockwood will be working with the AAC staff and a steering committee of nationally recognized figures in higher education. The study has three major purposes: to initiate discussion of the meaning and p~rpose of the B.A. degree and of the principles for structuring academic programs leading to such degrees; to identify the levels of knowledge, skills, and attitudes which should result from undergraduate study; and to develop guidelines for assessing the quality of these programs.

Lynch, who this year completed a two-year term as president of the National Alumni Association, previously served the association as vice president for campus activities, senior vice president, and twice as reunion chairman. The Trinity Club of Hartford named him "Man of the Year" in 1978, and he was awarded an Alumni Medal for Excellence at reunion ceremonies this past June. Lynch is vice president and managing officer of United Investors Corp., a real estate service organized by the state's savings and loan association.

DIETRICH, GORDON JOIN ADMISSIONS In October, Donald N. Dietrich,

associate dean of admission at Amherst College, was named director of admissions at Trinity. Dietrich replaces W. Howie Muir '51, who announced last spring that he would resign in the fall, after seventeen years as director of admissions and twentysix years of consecutive service to the College. ~ Noting Muir's outstanding service to the College for more than a quarter-century, President James F. v English, Jr., said, "More than 70% of the College's living alumni were admitted during Howie Muir's long and distinguished career as director of admissions. His integrity and adherence to high standards have earned him the respect of all who have worked with him, and have contributed greatly to Trinity's quality and standing. We shall all miss him."

TWO FELLOWS APPOINTED Dana M. Faulkner '76 and George P. Lynch, Jr. '61 have been appointed to three-year terms on Trinity's Board of Fellows. The Board of Fellows is a committee of 12 alumni who serve in an advisory capacity to the trustees and College administration. Faulkner, who is senior research associate with The Futures Group in Glastonbury, CT, was formerly an actuarial analyst and, later, analyst in long-range strategic planning for the Travelers Insurance Companies in Hartford. As an undergraduate, she was elected to Pi Gamma Mu, and received the Ferguson Prize in Gov-

PROFESSOR EMERITUS J. Wendell Burger, left, was honored at a reception at the Trinity library recently, when the complete collection of the articles he has written during his professional career was presented for the library archives. Librarian Ralph Emerick, center, holds the bound volume of papers, while Richard B. Crawford, professor and chairman of biology, represents the depart路 ment at the presentation. Dr. Burger was holder of the J. Pierpont Morgan Chair of Biology at Trinity, and has published extensively on the experimental modification of sex cycles of fish, amphibia, reptiles and birds under research grants from the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia. He joined the Trinity faculty in 1936 and headed the biology department from 1951 until his retirement in 1975. His son, James Burger, collected his father's articles and arranged to have them printed and bound for presentation to the library.

Over the summer, a thorougty, nation-wide search for a new admissions director was conducted, result- ing in Dietrich's appointment. Dietrich, 33, graduated from Amherst, magna cum laude, in 1't76, with a double major in sociology and anthropology. He holds a master's degree in education from Springfield College. A U.S. Navy veteran who served as a medical corpsman in Vietnam from 1968-1972, Dietrich was assistant to the dean of admiss ion at Springfield College in 1976-1977, and then joined the Amherst admissions staff as assistant dean. He became associate dean in July, 1980, with a broad range of responsibilities including coordination of the entire admissions program for freshmen and transfer students, as well as internal management of the admissions office. Commenting on the new appointment, Dean of the Faculty Andrew G. De Rocco said, "In Don Dietrich, we have a fully qualified and fully experienced person t6 provide both continuity and change in our admissions department, as appropriate. Don is respected by his peers in the admissions profession and extremely well thought of by counselling personnel in secondary sc hools. He comes to Trinity from an institution similar to ours, with an understanding of both our problems and our potential," Earlier in the fall, H. Scotte Gordon '78, was nafued assistant director of admissions. Gordon, a

member of Phi Beta Kappa and an American studies major at Trinity, returned to the College after three years of admissions work at Massachusetts' Wheaton College. There, she was responsible for managing admiss ions inquiries and applications for the New England region, was in charge of foreign admissions, and co-supervised the transfer applicant pool. Gordon contributed substantially to the development of an extensive alumnae recruiting network at Wheaton. She has been a member of the executive committee' of the National Alumni Association at Trinity since 1980. Dietrich and Gordon join adm issions office veterans Larry Dow '72, assoc iate director; Reggie Kennedy, assista nt director and coordinator of minority recruitment, and George Sutherland '73, assista nt director.

LARGE FRESHMAN CLASS ENROLLS The Class of 1985 has arrived, somewhat larger than usual in number- 464, to be exact- but, otherwise very typical of Trinity classes in recent years. Now fully in residence, the freshman class counts 248 men and 216 women in its ranks - drawn from 3024 applicants, compared with 3031 a year ago. Eight percent of the freshmen, 35 students, are alumni children, which is exactly the same percentage as in the Class of '84. There are also 22 siblings of alumni and current undergraduates in the freshmen class. Scholastically, the entering freshmen posted virtually the same SAT verbal and mathematics medians as the Class of '84. Rank in class continues strong, with 51 percent of the frosh from public schools in the top tenth of their high school class and 83 percent in the top fifth. Since many of the private school students are not ranked, they are not included in this figure. Sixty percent of the students in the Class of '85 comes from public schools, compared with 65 percent last year, and 40 percent is from independent secondary schools. Geographically, the freshmen come from 26 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and four foreign countries (India, Japan, Libya, and West Germany). In addition, seven students in the class are U.S. citizens who were living abroad before entering Trinity. Once again, Connecticut is the leading home state for freshmen, with 120 Nutmeggers in residence. Other high ranking states, in order, are Massachusetts, with 85, New York, 62, and New Jersey, 39. Interestingly, California has increased its showing, with 13 students in the Class of '85, compared with 9 enrolled last year. Enrollment of minority students continues to offer a less encouraging picture. Of 134 applications submitted by Black, Asian and Hispanic applicants, 80 students received offers of admission, but only 15' elected to enroll this fall. When asked their areas of interest

Individuals wishing to make such plans as part of their wills should also speak to Chaplain T ull. The service of interment and the officiating clergy are the selection of the persons planning the interment. Ashes are placed directly into the ground of the garden; on a stone plaque in the north porch of the Chapel will be carved the names, life dates, and, where appropriate, Trinity year and/ or office of the deceased. A one-time fee of $150 along with the actual cost of carving the names and dates on the stone plaque are charged for the use of the garden.

CELTIC CROSS, which was carved this summer on the north wall of the Chapel, marks the location of the Memorial Garden. for study at Trinity, 22 percent of the entering class mentioned the humanities; 23 percent, the social sciences; 28 percent, math and science; and 27 percent, undecided.

MEMORIAL GARDEN IS ESTABLISHED Over the summer, the College acquired a new point of interest on the north side of the Chapel - a Celtic cross carved on the Chapel wall, which marks the place of the Trinity College Memorial Garden. Planned by Chaplain Alan T ull, in response to inquiries from several individuals, the garden is set aside for the placing of ashes after cremation of members of the College. As in the

case of other special services provided by the Chapel, memb~rs are considered to be students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, their immediate families and such other persons who by reason of their association with Trinity would be recognized by the President of the College. Plantings for the garden are currently being designed. The cross on the Chapel wall and its Latin inscription, "In sure and certain hope," were given in memory of former College Trustee Seymour Smith '34 by members of his family . He is buried there, and the cross was formally dedicated in a ceremony on August 22nd, the date of his birth. Chaplain T ull notes that a number of churches have similar memorial

PUBLICATIONS WIN AWARDS The "Bantam Vacation" poster/flyer sent to all reunion classes last spring earned national honors recently, winning the top award in its category in a competition sponsored by the National School Public Relations Association. . A total of 1282 publications was entered in the contest from 350 schools and 179 colleges. The Trinity entry was designed by freelance artist, Jill Coykendall Calloway and written by William L. Churchill, director of public relations at the College. In another competition, Nick Noble, sports information director, received a citation for excellence from the College Sports Information Directors of America for a football program cover. In the category, Best Cover Design, Trinity's program was judged best in the nation for small colleges.

NEW DEPARTMENT HEADS SELECTED Four departments and programs have new chairmen this year. Dr. Robert Battis, professor of economics, has been appointed chairman of the economics department for a three-year term. A graduate of Rutgers, he earned his doctorate from New York University. Before coming to Trinity in 1959, he taught at Muhlenberg College, Lehigh University and Lafayette College. Battis' academic specialties are socialism and comparative economic systems. He has traveled widely in the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe and China. Battis was a member of the board of education in Wethersfield, Connecticut, for nine years. John Chatfield is acting director of the American studies program for one year, replacing Dr. Eugene E. Leach, who is on sabbatical. Chatfield, a

Trinity graduate, is a doctoral candidate in history at Columbia University. He was chairman of the history department at the Watkinson School in West Hartford from 197178, and has taught courses in history and American studies at Trinity since 1976. Chatfield writes book reviews regularly for The National Review. Dr. Leslie Desmangles, assistant professor of religion and intercultural studies, has been named director of the intercultural studies program for a three-year term. Desmangles has done field research in Haiti, the West Indies, France and Africa. In 1980, he was awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities summer grant to study the cultural dynamics between African religions and Christianity in the New World. Dr. Gerald Moshell, assistant professor of music, has been appointed director of the music program for a one-year term. A graduate of Pomona College with a doctorate from Yale, Moshell is choral director of Trinity's Concert Choir. His primary performing and scholarly interests are in musical theatre, particularly the works of Stravinsky, Sondheim, Strauss, and Sullivan.'

Capital Area Scholarships have been awarded to nine students from Greater Hartford who began their studies at Trinity this fall. Presented for the twenty-second consecutive year, the scholarships have a value of more than $100,000 over the next four years. This year's total of nine recipients is the highest number awarded in the last several years; in 1980, for example, Capital Area Scholarships were awarded to five students. This year's Capital Area scholars are: Frederick Andreoli of East Hartford, a graduate of Penney High School; Lisa Bakanas of Bolton, East Catholic High School; Louise Conway of Hartford, Bulkeley High School; Therese Fayette of Hartford, Hartford Public High School; Matthew George of West Hartford, Conard High School; Deanna Landry of Bloomfield, Bloomfield High School; Courtland Sears III of Manchester, Manchester High School; Carol Terry of Hartford, Hartford Public High School; and Kirsten VonMoltke of Hartford, Bulkeley High School. The Capital Area scholars rank in the top ten percent of their graduating classes and have been active in extracurricular activities. Trinity awards them financial aid for the full amount of their estimated need. Six outstanding students trom Illinois have been awarded grants under the Scholarships for Illinois Residents program. The amounts of the scholarships, renewable each year, vary with the financial need of each student. Illinois Scholars in the Class of '85 are: Janice Bosco of Oak Park, a graduate of Oak Park & River Forest High School; Martin Brenner of Evanston, Evanston Township High School East; Michael McGowan of Bloomington, University High School; John Muntean of Fairview Heights, Belleville Township High School; Barbara Siebel of Rockford, West High School; and Michael Zikovich of Granite City, Granite City High School South.

ELDERHOSTELERS enjoy a chamber music concert in the Trinity Chapel


I

don't believe in God," the student told her teacher after a class on religion and society. "I just want you to know." The remark took the professor, an Episcopal priest, by surprise. "I don't know a single undergraduate who would say t~at to me," he later said. The student, who was in her 70's, was a participant in a six-year-old nationwide program that is new to Trinity College this summer. Called Elderhostel, it offers low-cost non-credit courses and room and board to persons 60 or older or to those whose spouses are. Teaching elderly students has provided more than a few surprises for the Trinity faculty members involved in the program. "They speak from the heart and have a large storehouse of eyewitness knowledge," said Frank G. Kirkpatrick, an associate professor of religion. Unlike his current undergraduate students, who, he said, are "pretty reticent and reluctant to share their feelings in class," the elderhostelers are "uninhibited and eager to say what they think." "They are so active, questioning and fun in class," added Borden W. Painter, Jr., a history professor and coordinator of Elderhostel for Trinity. "It'll be hard going back to the younger kids." Though a formal education is not a prerequisite to attending Elderhostel, many participants have college backgrounds and some hold advanced degrees. "My worst fear," said Dr. Kirkpatrick, "wasn't that my lectures would go over the students' heads, but that I would face my first class, make a statement and someone in the group will have written a book on the subject and correct me." ¡ He had a taste of such a situation when one day, while conducting his class, he unwittingly referred to "the late" Norman Vincent Peale. Several gray and white heads began shaking vigorously in protest, and a dozen hands shot up. Acceptance into Elderhostel, which this summer is being offered on 406 United States college, university and independent secondary school campuses, including nine in Connecticut, is based on availability of space. Each program lasts one week and is limited to 30 or 40 students. Some host institutions schedule sessions all summer long. Others, like Trinity, offer the programs for three or four weeks. The national educational program for adults was founded in 1975 by Martin P. Knowlton of Portland, Me., a teacher and administrator.

Tuition for three classes, plus room and board, is $140 a week in the continental United States and $ 150 in Alaska and Hawaii. A limited scholarship fund is available. The fee is set -by Elderhostel Inc., a nonprofit, taxexempt organization based in Boston. It has a board of directors and a coordinator in each state and is supported in part by corporate and foundation donors. Prospective participants list a first choice of campus and two alternate selections. States that are popular vacation spots and that are along major travel routes tend to draw more interest, as do larger, prestigious schools like Yale and Williams. The popularity of Elderhostel is growing 40,000 participants are expected this year, twice as many as last yearand competition for the more popular campuses is keen, said Dr. Painter. "It's almost as bad as undergraduate admissions," he said. A few elderhostelers at Trinity said that Yale had been their first choice. "But we really like it here and would certainly come back," said Melvyn B. Myers of Roslyn, L.I., who was enrolled in the program with his wife, Virginia. In a recent group of Trinity hostelers, most seemed to view the program as an intellectual and social adventure, rather than as a vacation. Erich Laury and his wife, both retired psychiatrists from Germany who now live in Fort Lee, N.J., were enthusiastic about the three courses being offered one recent week: Religion and Society in Tension, Personalities of the Reformation, and Charles Dickens. "We came here to learn about something other than medicine," said Dr. Laury. "To us, this program is food for the spirit." Concern that Elderhostel is becoming too popular was expressed by one participant. In 1978, the program was offered in 20 states by 120 institutions and drew 7,000 hostelers. By last summer, the numbers had increased to SO states, 315 institutions and 20,000 participants. "If there are too many disappointed people who can't get into the schools of their choice, the joy of Elderhostel will be lost," Mr. Myers said. Programs run from Sunday night to Saturday morning, and some participants travel from campus to campus for a number of weeks. They can take courses ranging from beekeeping to solar energy, which are taught by members of the institutions' regular faculty. Courses are sometimes geared to the area where they are

offered. Hostelers can study biofeedback, fitness fads and film criticism in California, examine volcanos and coral reefs in Hawaii, discuss maritime law in Maine and go backpacking in Oregon. Courses are different at each school and titles are often appealingly worded. "My Grandchild Is a Whiz Kid" includes hints on how to provide a stimulating environment for "the little ones in your life." Each campus offers hostelers the use of its facilities and a variety of extracurricular activities. Tuesday is wine and cheese night at Trinity, there is a picnic supper on Wednesday and a carillon concert is held weekly. Free tickets are available to Summerstage, a professional summer theater in residence at Trinity's Austin Arts Center. Prospective participants are informed by the Elderhostel catalogue that they will live "simply" in unairconditioned school dormitories and must be willing to room with another hosteler. ,Meals "that may not be up to gourmet standards" are shared in cafeterias with other students and faculty members. Day students are admitted to some programs, but commuting is discouraged because Elderhostel is intended as a combination of hosteling and intellectual stimulation. Dr. Painter assigned Trinity's elderhostelers, whose ages ranged during a recent week from 62 to 89, to the college's newest dormitory because it is easily accessible and has an elevator. A refrigerator is provided for participants primarily for the storage of medications, though some hostelers conceded that their principle concern was having ice to make afternoon cocktails. There is no television, "because I wanted to avoid any arguments about switching channels," Dr. Painter said. Though there are no prerequisites or required homework for the classes, and no grades, tests or credits given, attendance is high and the students regard their courses seriously, taking copious notes and constantly raising their hands to ask questions or volunteer answers or opinions. "In what year did Dickens write Oliver Twist?" asked one student of John W. Dando, a professor of English at the college. While Mr. Dando paused to recollect t-he date, another student called out the correct answer. "That's the worst part of Elderhostel," Mr. Dando chided the class. "You're all such smart alecks." â&#x20AC;˘ Š 1981 by The New York Times Company. Reprinted by permission.

The Curriculum Review Faculty endorses Trinity's open curriculum. Introduction: The Obligations Of Freedom When the faculty decided, in the Spring of 1980, to empower an Ad Hoc committee to review the curriculum for the first time since 1969, the opportunity for a formal institutional evaluation of the structure within which education takes place at the College was created. The general sentiment was that the Open Curriculum had been functioning well for the past eleven years, and the call for a review could not be said to stem from any widespread sense of dissatisfaction. It was, nevertheless, the conviction of the Curriculum Committee, in seeking the faculty's approval, that a reappraisal of the operating assumptions and of the means of implementation of the curriculum was timely. By its subsequent discussion and decision, the faculty has endorsed this confiction and provided a valuable opportunity for the examination, debate and enhancement of all that is most central to the College's purposes. In the field of higher education, as in so many others, the late sixties and early seventies saw the vigorous and sometimes violent questioning of structures and values in which previous generations had found worth. The traditional aims of a liberal arts education generally retained the academy's loyalty, but the means by which those aims were met were, in some cases, substantially altered. The call was to make of the educational process not only a formalized endeavor by which universally agreed-upon segments of "knowledge" were imparted to the student, but also a more personalized undertaking whereby individual tastes and talents were fostered, in the belief that each student's uniqueness was to be brought to flower through the educational process. In keeping with this outlook, the Open Curriculum abandoned every requirement for graduation except for the acquisition of thirty-six credits and the completion of a major, thereby uneq~_livocally placing primary responsibility for successful study on the student's own shoulders. Hope was placed in such strategies as advising, the Freshman Seminar Program, Guideline Courses and College Courses for encouraging the student to branch out and explore, "to become intelligently self-motivated" as the College Bulletin has it, as well as for controlling the risks of immoderate or premature concentration.

Thus the animating spirit of the Open Curriculum was securely in place. It celebrates the belief that it is the College's proper function to place students in situations where they must make choices and where they must expect to live with the consequences of their choices; it further speaks to the conviction that to nurture the student's capacity for self-reliance is not only prudent, and in fact warranted by experience, but an essential part of the mission of the College. The ambitions, the interests and to some degree the preparation of today's student are in many respects quite different from what they were in the sixties. Inevitably reflecting and responding to changes in society at large, the typical Trinity student now seeks, alongside and in some cases in preference to a liberal education as conventionally understood, a preprofessional or career-oriented dimension to the curriculum. The code work, "relevance," which the sixties took to signify "having validity in the context of an individual's values," remains an important part of our vocabulary, but it has now been redefined to mean "having practical applicability in the context of a student's career aspirations." The Ad Hoc committee thus saw its charge as essentially two-fold: firstly, to determine whether the Open Curriculum remained as inherently deserving of support as it had seemed to its proponents; and secondly, to judge if changes since its introduction had affected its capacity to respond to today's needs, and whether it needed to be modified to accommodate those changes. These two lines of inquiry involved in the first instance extensive consultations with all interested groups - teachers (both those who had come to the College since the present curriculum was introduced and those who had worked with its predecessor), department chairmen and program directors, senior administrators, undergraduates, alumni (by means of a questionnaire), directors of the Freshman Seminar Program, the director of admissions, the authors of the position papers commissioned by President Lockwood in the Spring of 1980, and a number of experts in the field of curricular evaluation and development from beyond the College. The criteria by which the success of something as broadly conceived as "the curriculum" can be measured are necessarily elusive; it is apparent, however, that primary among these criteria is the

14

extent to which those most affected by the curriculum perceive it as successful. A large part of the committee's time was thus spent in determining the assessment of the curriculum on the part of both faculty and students. The question remains as to whether there is a single, institutionally unified understanding of the curriculum, or whether, in fact, the curriculum gains the bulk of its support from the multiplicity of ways in which it can be interpreted. Nevertheless, as an outcome of its consultations, the committee can report that there is substantial enthusiasm for the curriculum as it currently stands, that this enthusiasm is to be found among all the groups met with, and that any effort to revert to the older, more structured curriculum would enjoy little support among the various constituencies. This is not to say, of course, that our discussions have failed to identify problematic issues and areas of the curriculum that call for attention. The analysis of these problems along with an exploration of the options discussed will be found in the body of this report. But it remains worthy of note here that what might have appeared as simple tolerance, or even indifference, as long as the curriculum remained unexamined in its totality, has proved upon detailed and systematic review to be essentially conviction and commitment on a wide scale. It must be emphasized, however, that the committee viewed this consultation, and its subsequent reporting of it, as only part - and perhaps the lesser part - of its work. Numerous and lengthy discussions were undertaken within the committee itself, in order not only to bring out the members' concerns and criticisms but also to lead the committee to a number of precise formulations of ways in which the problems that had been identified might be dealt with. It was unanimously felt that formal review of the curriculum should be a continuing, dynamic process, rather than something that happens on an ad hoc basis, and that some of the problems under discussion might have been alleviated had an explicit review mechanism been an original part of the 1969 curriculum. In this context, the committee gave much thought to the role of the standing Curriculum Committee, at the same time as that body itself undertook a major review of its structure and functions. In sum, the committee reaffirms the Open Curriculum, placing as it does final responsibility on the undergraduates themselves for the shape and content of their individual academic programs, and believes that it will continue to attract imaginative and

able students eager to take full advantage of the options open to them. The vision that led to the introduction of the Open Curriculum has not been betrayed, and it is significant that newer faculty, who played no part in the debate surrounding its inception, are among its most eloquent and capable advocates, alongside the older faculty whose efforts have translated the concept into practice. Even in the face of society's current preoccupations with the "practical" and vocational dimensions of education, the Open Curriculum remains an honest and realistic framework in which to exercise the minds and imaginations of the young people who come to us. Its flexibility encourages the determined traveller, the adventurous risk-taker and the wanderer still seeking a path, by the provision of guide-posts rather than fences and tracks. At the same time, it is difficult to imagine a better preparation for life after graduation than the systematic exposure to a curriculum that invites the student to make decisions, and to analyze and evaluate the criteria by which those decisions are made. Far from being a starry-eyed hold-over from the more easy-going values of a decade or so ago, the Open Curriculum remains a strong and practically directed apprenticeship for the world our students will inherit - and create. The keynote to its validity is, in essence, its limitless capacity for challenge. The committee .realizes that to reaffirm the Open Curriculum is to go against contemporary trends. Many of the institutions which turned away from conventional curricula in the late sixties have, in the course of recent appraisals, felt the need to return to something of a more structured nature. It can be expected that Trinity's adherence to the Open Curriculum will stand as an increasingly distinctive feature of the College. This should not be lost sight of at a time when the future of many liberal arts colleges is no longer merely a subject of hypothetical debate. As an essay entitled "Admissions in the Eighties" in the Spring 1981 issue of the Trinity Reporter has it: "In the face of market strictures ... each institution must begin to define more clearly its 'distinctiveness,' that peculiar combination of attributes which differentiates it from its competitors. The halo effect of being 'one of those selective little colleges in New England' will no longer be sufficiently effective or persuasive." Independently of such economic criteria, however, the committee firmly believes that the curriculum is inherently valuable in that it affirms the conviction that freedom is a vital part of the liberal education; indeed, that alone will justify its retention in the eyes of many. The committee has nevertheless come to sense that if there is one single aspect of the Open Curriculum that bears substantial questioning, it is to be found at the intersection of this freedom and the capacity for challenge. In what is perhaps an inevitable development, as theory has passed into practice, the very multiplicity of understandings alluded to earlier has to some extent blurred our understanding of what that freedom entails. For some students, the cu'r riculum is a good one not for


15

what it frees them to study, but for what it frees them from having to study. Among some members of the faculty, it finds favor on account of the obligations it avoids - concern for non-major forms of study, for example, or commitment to advising- as well as for what it enables. Curricular innovation and teaching excellence are crucial to the success of the Open Curriculum, and if they are not perceived on all sides as having the highest institutional priority, an important part of the curriculum's potential remains unfulfilled. While freedom, by its nature, encompasses the right to make choices that might not gain universal support, the committee nevertheless wishes to point out that what might be termed "negative freedom" is a danger that has not always been avoided under the Open Curriculum. To steer us away from the risks of this "negative freedom" is then one of the greatest of the challenges that the curriculum puts before us. All members of the College community must develop a sense of responsibility for the curriculum that stresses not only the freedoms that it entails but also the obligations that such freedoms carry with them. Each of the parties to the contract must, as in any free association, be willing to give up certain freedoms in order to secure others. To work with an Open Curriculum in a liberal arts college carries with it obligations that are different from those that characterize

" it affirms the conviction that freedom is a vital part of the liberal education.'' a community college or a university. The commitment to the liberal arts entails the obligation to be broadly educated, and this obligation transcends the need to specialize in a given field; nowhere does this manifest itself more clearly than in the tensions that exist between the major and the non-major areas of study, and in the attempt to resolve these tensions lies the greatest challenges to the College community. Faculty and students share the responsibility of giving up a measure of unconstrained freedom in favor of teaching and developing certain habits of mind (as opposed to certain knowledge) seen as basic to the survival of the liberal arts, habits of mind that induce connections among the various bodies of knowledge themselves as well as between knowledge and outside experience. In its turn, the Administration has a major obligation to encourage and sustain the efforts of individuals to enhance the liberal arts commitment to what might be termed "responsible freedom" and to make of that concept the lodestar of both curricular and faculty development. The obligations of the freedom allowed by the Open Curriculum call for a concerted, institution-


16

wide understanding of the College's purposes, and, if not for a policy, then at least for a consensus that avoids curricular drift by the provision of purposeful direction. "Much learning does not teach understanding." The words of Heraclitus, as valid today as they were some twenty-five centuries ago, remind us that it is fundamental to a liberal education that the accumulation of knowledge is nothing without the wisdom to use that knowledge well. The Open Curriculum is a strong and sound framework within which to impart and acquire that wisdom: it calls for the exercise of responsible freedom, in the conviction that growth in learning and excellence in teaching are best achieved when they are self-chosen, selfformulated and self-motivated. If nothing else, it is the hope of the committee that curricular review will henceforth be seen as a means of continuing to energize that conviction, and of strengthening the College's commitment to it. For these reasons, we must do more to live up to the curriculum's capacity for challenge - challenge both for the student and for the teacher. The danger of complacency inevitably lurks behind any successful enterprise, and the committee believes it is important to stress the curriculum's potential for major challenges that bring teacher and student to thresholds of uncertainty, committing intellectual capacities to the full without necessarily having the comfortable reassurance of ultimate success to fall back on. The purpose is not to humiliate or defeat, of course, but to teach how to handle risk, to show in a practical manner that valid inquiry cannot always be predicated on guaranteed outcomes, and to demonstrate to the student that to seek can be as rewarding as to find. Risk and challenge are a large part of life, and it is proper that our curriculum reflect this by the appropriate engagement of the energies of both teacher and student. In this way, the committee believes that the Open Curriculum can continue to develop toward the best of its potentialities.

Review and Recommendations BREADTH AND COHERENCE: INTELLECTUAL LITERACY Diversity of knowledge and breadth of perspective are the essence of liberal learning and the necessary concomitant of the specialized competency of the major. Furthermore, a liberal education should explore "the connections among fields of knowledge and between knowledge and its uses." Consistent with its fundamental position that the Open Curriculum with its free choice of electives remains the educational model most amenable to the intellectual outlook and aspirations of Trinity faculty and students, the committee has pondered the challenge to both parties to exercise this freedom responsibly - to the students in choosing electives, and to the faculty in deciding what to teach and how - in the successful pursuit of breadth, coherence, and applicability of knowledge.

Hits flexibility encourages the determined traveller, the adventurous risk .. taker and the wanderer still seeking a path, by the provision of guide .. posts rather than fences and tracks." The committee is convinced that this challenge can be met through a renewed commitment to the wide range of curricular options provided by the Open Curriculum, including Freshman Seminars, College Courses, Guideline Courses, Independent Study, Intensive Study, and Open Semester. This is not to say that nothing need chq.nge. In the most productive options, change has already occurred, while for others that have fallen into disuse or lacked a fair trial, revitalization or replacement is required. The committee has given particular consideration to the following:

Freshman Seminar One of the most successful curricular options, not least for the advisory role of the instructor in most students' freshman and sophomore years, the Freshman Seminar has evolved into quite a different creature from its prototype. It is now more structured and used as an opportunity for improving communications skills, but there is an increasing tendency for the seminars to approximate conventional departmental offerings. The committee therefore recommends reaffirmation of those aspects of the Freshman Seminar Program that promote awareness of the academic opportunities of the Open Curriculum, emphasize method in learning as well as content, encourage the individual student's personal growth, and permit faculty to experiment with approaches and subject matter different from those which characterize their regular departmental courses. In fact, there has been enthusiasm among members of the committee for making a parallel offering available to seniors as a unique culminating experience outside the major.

Independent Study Another feature of the 1969 curriculum that has undergone a remarkable revision is Independent Study - including Open Semester and the Individualized Interdisciplinary Major - originally devised to offer special opportunities to study outside, as well as within, the area of concentration. In its original form it survives mostly as a departmental option for advanced majors, and a recent study by Professor Kirkland suggests the need for stimulation of broader participation by both faculty and students. On the other hand, internships, especially as redefined by recent Faculty action, and other external programs provide a variety of new options for majors and non-majors alike. Individual Interdisciplinary Majors as such attract an average of four students a year, and this sort of interest is


further served by various interdisciplinary programs instituted since 1969: American Studies, Biochemistry, Comparative Literature, Computer Coordinate, Intercultural Studies, and Urban and Environmental Studies.

Intensive Study Conceived as an opportunity to permit groups of students to pursue a particular topic or related topics for a semester under the direction of an individual instructor (or to take concurrently three courses and an integrating seminar supervised by the instructors in the courses), the Intensive Study option depended on the isolated interest of a few faculty members. These experiments, all but forgotten by the late seventies, have recently been revived on a more or less regu lar basis by individual faculty who have found the Barbieri Center/Rome Campus a congenial and productive setting for such a unique experience in integrated learning. Perhaps more would be undertaken under similar conditions of encouragement and support.

Guideline Courses The fate of Guideline Courses has been one of almost total neglect. In order to assure a student's knowledge and competence in a variety of academic fields, the Faculty established four Guideline Areas to be used by student and adviser in planning the non-major course of study. The four, which intentionally overlapped departmental boundaries and the traditional division of the Faculty into Humanities, Arts, Natural Science and Social Sciences were: a. Language and Other Symbolic Systems b. Man's Interaction with the Natural World

c. Man's Social Institutions d. Forms of Culture Existing departmental offerings could be designated as Guideline Courses, but the 1969 Curriculum Revision Committee specifically urged the creation of new courses of a non-traditional, interdisciplinary or mutlidisciplinary sort, designed to serve the nonspecialist. In fact, in its final report several topics were suggested for each area. In 1970-71, the Bulletin included a list of suggested courses comprised for the most part of departmental lower level and prerequisite offerings. But even this table was not printed thereafter, and by 197 3 an independent study indicated that although Trinity students continued to elect a broad distribution of non-major courses, the Guideline Areas were not being observed. The situation at present is much the same. Departmental listings abound in courses available to non-majors, but few departments provide electives specifically for non-majors, and only one designates Guideline Courses by name. On the other hand, although the elimination of basic distribution requirements in 1969 resulted in an average increase of only about three courses per student in the major area (of the total 36 required for graduation), analysis of student records for the subsequent decade by the President's office indicates that this additional concentration has been matched by a corresponding decrease in the number of courses taken by students of the humanities and the arts in mathematics and the natural sciences. This finding would seem to support the common perception among faculty consulted by the committee that humanities and arts majors tend to be scientifically "illiterate," but there is also evidence for deficiency in exposure to the arts on the part of students of mathematics, the natural sciences, and the social sciences - and to the social

17


18

sciences on the part of students of mathematics, the natural sciences, and the arts. Thus, it seems appropriate for the Faculty to consider whether the Guideline Areas should be revived - either in their old form or under some new guise - and promoted, in accordance with their original rationale: first, as an acceptable general context within which student and adviser can plan a coherent and comprehensive program of study in the non-major area, and, second, as an opportunity for faculty, individually and in cooperative ventures, to demonstrate to students the ways in which their professional interests and personal attachments are bound up with a larger world of human culture, science and technology, and social and political institutions. Guideline Courses (or their replacements) might, then, represent a special outreach to stimulate and inform an intelligent non-professional audience. Ideally, many would be interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary ventures focusing on subjects of mutual interest, viewed from different intellectual perspectives. Alternatively, "clusters" or related sequences of courses might be developed. The standing Curriculum Committee seems the obvious instrument for effecting such a review and defining appropriate guidelines - whatever their name and nature - to assist in planning coh erent and comprehensive study outside the major. The principal advocacy of these standards might then be assigned to the Committee on Advising, whose creation is recommended elsewhere in this report.

College Courses These offerings were to be "extraordinary nondepartmental courses, reflecting the current scholarly interests" of a faculty member - which could range beyond his or her professional academic discipline or a timely "response to student interest in subjects which are not encompassed within the traditional departmental categories." Overall, an average of six or more has been offered each year, but since 1977, due to departmental staffing needs, College Courses have been taught almost exclusively by the College Professors and members of the Administration. This regrettable development raises the general question of the extent to which structural considerations should be allowed to impair the proper functioning of the curriculum to which we as a Faculty are committed. 路 A nagging concern that has persisted in much of the committee's discussions is whether, short of imposing requirements or quotas, efforts at curricular innovation, or even renovation, will be received with sufficient enthusiasm on the part of students so as to make the necessary investment of time and energy worthwhile. Our best basis for judgment is the demonstrated success of those curricular options of the 1969 reform that have received strong and tangible administrative support. Only su-ch assistance that takes the form of a budgeted allocation of time and money can ensure constant maintenance and renewal of a curriculum

so challenging to faculty and students alike. Likewise, there is a need of support (perhaps from funds such as those provided by the Hewlett-Mellon grant) for faculty development and special recognition of enterprising curricular initiatives.

Recommendation # 1 Moved, that the Faculty charge the standing Curriculum Committee to undertake more regular and systematic curricular review and to examine the various academic opportunities available under the curricular reform of 1969 with a view to reaffirming those that are healthy, revitalizing those that deserve assistance, and replacing or abandoning those that do not.

BREADTH AND COHERENCE: ADVISING In reaffirming Trinity's Open Curriculum the committee recognizes that "a free elective curriculum is most successful when coupled with judicious faculty advising." (Bulletin, 1980-81, p. 10) We believe that the use of freshman seminar instructors as advisers to students during their first two years at Trinity has worked well and is based on the sound principle that good "advising is most apt to occur when the student and the adviser can develop a close working relationship." (Idem.) We also understand that no system of advising is better than those charged with the responsibility of dispensing the advice. It is clear that most Trinity faculty members discharge their responsibilities as advisers conscientiously and skillfully, but evidence also suggests that the burden falls unevenly. A faculty member who teaches a freshman seminar for two or three consecutive years, for example, quickly acquires twenty-five or thirty advisees and thus faces a dilemma: either to give less advice and undercut the system or to maintain a proper level of advice and take away from time spent on reading, research and preparation for teaching. Under these circumstances, it is all too easy to neglect advising students after the freshman year and to yield to the temptation to sign course cards tacked on the door without prior discussion. The committee concludes that although the current system is sound, it needs strengthening. With that in mind we recommend a faculty advising committee to supplement the work of individual advisers and to accept responsibility for regular and systematic review of the system at the College.

Recommendation #2 Moved that there be a faculty Committee on Advising to be appointed by the Dean of the Faculty from among those faculty volunteering for such service and to consist of six members representing the major academic divisions of the College: Arts, Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences; the Dear). of the Faculty or his designated representative would serve ex-officio. Terms of service and other matters of organization


HDiversity of knowledge and breadth of perspective are the essence of liberal learning ... " shall be determined by the Committee on Committees and reported to the faculty. The duties and responsibilities of the Advising Committee should include the following: (1) Working with all groups (administration, faculty, students) on matters pertaining to advising. (2) Reporting to the faculty on matters pertaining to advising and recommending changes in the advising system when needed. (3) Assisting with the registration of incoming freshmen in consultation with the adviser to the freshman class. (4) Assisting new faculty in learning how to advise effectively. (5) Reviewing student programs of study on a regular basis, with emphasis on the programs of rising juniors. Particular attention would be paid to the breadth and coherence of each rising junior's freshman-sophomore course of study. The review would lead, in some instances, to recommendations about electives which the student could take in the second two years to redress any imbalance or other deficiency which the committee had identified. The intent of such recommendations would not be to limit the students' freedom of choice. Rather, by raising questions and making suggestions about the relationship of the individual course of study to the purposes and animating spirit of liberal education, the committee would attempt to encourage a more thoughtful (and perhaps a more dari.ng) use of that freedom. (It is understood that in such cases the Committee would work closely with both adviser and student.)

BREADTH AND COHERENCE: THE MAJOR The prominent features of our Open Curriculum are student choice and the importance of the major. The committee recognizes and reaffirms the centrality of the major, which remains the only requirement mandated by the Open Curriculum. However, the committee strongly believes that student course selections in the major and beyond should achieve better breadth and coherence. In order to achieve these goals the committee recommends that departments be requested to define a "Cognate Area" consisting of courses in other departments, and to introduce a "Senior Exercise" within the major.

Cognate Area The committee considered two interpretations of the concept of breadth: breadth defined as "knowledge and competence in a variety of academic fields" (Bulletin, 1980-81, p. 12), which we have

termed "intellectual literacy," and breadth defined as p~ding a context for the student's major discipline through the study of related disciplines. These two views of breadth are of course complementary. This section deals with cognate areas which reflect the view of breadth as a means of gaining perspectives on the major discipline. The committee believes that the division of knowledge into disciplines stems from tradition rather than immutable principles. Disciplines are not isolated endeavors, but inherently related or cognate to each other. The history of the humanities and the sciences as well as the testimony of the Trinity faculty support the notion that different disciplines are related, and that developments in one discipline are inspired by influences from other, sometimes quite remote, disciplines. The history of ideas abounds with cases of such cross-fertilization. Reviewing Darwin's activities prior to the formulation of the Origin of Species, Stephen Jay Gould was "particularly struck by the absence of a deciding influence from (Darwin's) own field of biology. The immediate precipitators were a sociologist (Comte), an economist (Stewart), and a statistician (Quetelet)." Breadth of interest and, the ability to construct fruitful analogies among varying fields are vital ingredients of intellectual achievement. In order to foster linkages between our own and other disciplines, several departments in each of the major divisions at Trinity College already list cognate courses in other departments. The committee believes that students of all departments and programs could benefit from exposure to cognate areas. We believe that the designation of cognate areas by departments and programs is the best available mechanism to encourage students to make broader course selections. We take this view because the departmental structure at Trinity College is a strong one, partly as a result of the inevitable emphasis on depth and on departmental requirements. While the introduction of cognate areas by departments would not change the departmental structure, it would generate a greater degree of consultation and increased communication among departments.

Recommendation #3: Moved that each department and program identify cognate courses appropriate to the major and list them in the Bulletin. Departments and programs may choose to require specific courses, suggest a choice from a set of courses, or simply name departments and programs from which students may choose courses in consultation with their adviser.

Senior Exercise The committee has reviewed the nature of the senior year at Trinity College in the course of its discussions with faculty members and students. Several faculty members have observed that some students finish their major requirements prior to the senior year, and that many second-semester seniors

HBoth faculty and students suggest that the curriculum provide for a culminating or 'capstone' academic experience in the senior year.'' have little contact With their major department. Consequently, the senior year may not provide the opportunity for integrating the knowledge the student has acquired in the preceding semesters. Students, too, would like to see the structure of the senior year improved. Many seniors have said that they were looking for more shared academic experiences in their final year. Thus both faculty and students were suggesting that the curriculum provide for a culminating or "capstone" academic experience during the senior year. Indeed, many departments and programs already have such an academic senior exercise. Senior Exercises exist now in the form of Senior Seminars or Theses, which are intended to integrate various aspects of the discipline, and in the form of General Examinations designed to demonstrate mastery of the discipline.

Recommendation #4: Moved that each department and program require a Senior Exercise representing a culmination of the student's work in the major. Each department should fashion the Senior Exercise according to its own judgment, but the function of the exercise

would be the same, namely to ensure the integrity of the major and to enhance the prospects of coherence in the context of the major. Possible formats for the Senior Exercise would be Senior Seminars, General Examinations, Reading Courses, Theses, Laboratory Research, Senior Projects, Senior Essays, or a combination thereof.

Conclusion These recommendations deal with only a portion of the committee's work. Since our first meeting in April 1980, we have reviewed many parts of the curriculum, but we have not attempted to offer a report or recommendations on all of them. Some of these parts may need no immediate attention, or alternatively will require further review by the Curriculum Committee. We believe strongly that the faculty must continue to review and revise the curriculum on a regular basis in collaboration with the Curriculum Committee, whose proposed new structure and revised procedures, currently before the Committee on Committees, we fully endorse in the belief that they will enable it to maintain the Faculty's focus on the curriculum. The College ought to think of curriculum review and revision as a continuing process rather than as an occasional "special event." The committee did consider, however, some suggestions concerning the curriculum, which it decided not to act upon, but which it wishes to


"Curricular innovation and teaching excellence are crucial to the success of the Open Curriculum." mention in this report with the hope and expectation that they will be considered by the ¡ Curriculum Committee and other appropriate committees in the near future. Items of particular interest are as follows:

Double-Majors and Minors An increasing number of our students are expressing an interest in double majoring and this interest appears to be part of a national trend. At the same time, some faculty members have expressed a concern that the double major is an unwise course for many students, and have suggested instituting a formal "minor" which would allow students to identify on their transcripts programs of study outside the major. The committee decided not to make a recommendation on these matters, but believes that the issues and questions raised need attention.

Committees Our educational philosophy and program receive concrete expression from the decisions the College makes in the regular course of its life. In particular, the decisions of the Educational Policy Committee, the Appointments and Promotions Committee and the Curriculum Committee are of central importance in shaping the curriculum and the means of its implementation. We believe it is important that the policies of these committees be continuously reviewed and coordinated so that they are consistent with each other. The relationship of teaching and curricular development on the one hand and scholarly activity on the other must be carefully thought through and articulated, so that it is clearly understood by all.

Faculty Development The committee believes that a key to a healthy curriculum is a healthy faculty! Support in the form of released time and grants, for example, should be available to faculty p~rsuing scholarly work which will directly affect the curriculum. We b elieve that some of the Hewlett-Mellon funds, for example, could be used to assist faculty toward that end.

Catalogue . Catalogues may not rank among the masterpieces of literature, but they do convey essential information. Our Bulletin, like most others, is revised or changed piecemeal, according to changes in departments and programs. We believe an accurate, attractive and clear catalogue is important. It is, among other things, an important instrument for advising. We also believe that catalogue and other information sent to incoming freshmen need careful and continuing scrutiny.

We wish to point out that we have been mindful during our review of the curriculum's relationship to all of our students: past, present and future. Discussion with the director of admissions confirms, for example, that an open, free elective curriculum will continue to attract able students so long as the faculty itself remains convinced that this is the kind of curriculum through which we can do the most effective teaching. We also believe that it is important for the College to gain the views of alumni on the curriculum. The committee's summer subcommittee devised a very effective and useful questionnaire which was sent out to five classes (1965, 1968, 1971, 1974, 1977). The returns have only recently come in, and we think that they are compatible with the ideas and recommendations in this report. (In due course, once a full examination has been carried out, the results of this questionnaire will be made available to the faculty and other interested groups.) Furthermore, we believe that our contacts with alumni, both formal and informal, suggest a high degree of alumni interest in the College and a willingness to provide a constructive and helpful role in the review of the curriculum. Hence, the committee strongly urges that the faculty and the administration continue to solicit the alumni for their views on the curriculum. The committee wishes to stress, in conclusion, that its own enthusiastic endorsement of the Open Curriculum stems primarily neither from the fact of its approval by the majority of the alumni who have responded, nor from its role in the efforts of the Office of Admissions. Our most vivid impressions have come from the imaginative and creative exploitation of the curriculum's potential by its current practitioners, both faculty and students, and our review has sharpened our own understanding of the obligations and benefits it entails. The curriculum is, like all dynamic structures, a structure for accommodation, in which specialization must be in balance with educational breadth, practically directed study in balance with adventurous learning for its own sake, and the freedom to avoid certain endeavors in balance with the obligation to embark on others. Through the energies of all sections of the College community, the Open Curriculum is a success, and the committee does not feel hesitant in saying so. It is our hope that the discussion and implementation of this report will enhance the curriculum's potential for superior teaching and learning, and thereby the College's claim to excellence. â&#x20AC;˘

The foregoing report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Curriculum Review was approved by the Trinity facult y in the spring of 1981 , Membership on the Ad Hoc Committee included the following: Borden Painter, history, (chairman); ]ames Bradley, classics; Andrew De Rocco, dean of the facult y; Karl Haberlandt, psychology, (secretary); Thomas Hefferon '82; Kenneth Lloyd-Jones, modern languages; Michael Mahoney, fine arts; August Sapega, engineering; Robert Stewart, mathematics; Joseph Troiano '81; Ruth Watson '82.

Sports CREWS SHINE AT HENLEY-On June 20, 1981, after six weeks of double session practices, twenty-three members of the Trinity College crew team, along with two coaches and a host of supporters, departed for Henley-onthe-Thames in England. It was the sixth visit by Bantam crews to the century-and-a-half-old Henley Royal Regatta. This summer, however, was just a little bit different. Trinity was going to Henley as 1981 national small college champions. Three Trinity boats were scheduled to compete in the July 2-5 affair. The national gold medalist men's varsity lightweight eight was entered for the Thames Challenge Cup. A coxless four made up of lightweight and heavyweight spares was entered for the Visitors Cup. In one of the Regatta's two main

events - the Ladies Challenge Plate - Trinity's men's varsity heavyweight eight was entered for the sixth time. In 1976 Trinity won the Ladies Plate, while setting a Henley course record for that event. In the first round action, the lightweights defeated England's Manchester University by four lengths. In the Ladies Plate, the Trinity's heavies easily bested Lady Margaret B.C. to cap a winning day for the Bantams. The second round was not so fortunate for the Trinity lights. A boat from Thames R.C. beat them by four lengths, to knock the U.S. small college gold medalists out of the Thames Cup competition. The coxless four was defeated in the Visitors Cup as well. It was the Trinity varsity heavyweight boat that thrilled Trinity fans in second round action. Racing against Princeton, a boat which had defeated them twice during the regular 'season, Trinity edged out the Tigers by three-quarters of a length in an exciting finish. The next day saw the Bantam heavies put four lengths between themselves and Manchester University of England, in the quarterfinals of the Ladies Challenge Plate. So, for the fourth time in six trips to Henley, Trinity advanced to the final four of the Ladies Plate competition. It was their first time photo by Tom

in that elite quartet since their record-setting triumph in 1976. In the semi-finals it was the University of Washington, the eventual 1981 Ladies Plate champions, who edged out Trinity by one-and· a· third lengths in 7:27. Washington went on to upend Yale (the defending champs) in the finals . The trip to Henley capped an extremely successful season for head coach Norm Graf and the Trinity crew team. This fall they begin again, with boats entered in the Head of the Connecticut and Head of the Charles Regattas, in preparation for defense of their national small college title this spring.

John Meaney, co-captain of men's basketball, was named to the Third Academic AllAmerica team, while Karen Orczyk was Honorably Mentioned as a Freshman All-American in women's hoop. In the spring, senior Scott Growney earned All-America status in men's lacrosse. All but Growney return for the 1981-82 year, along with Pete Martin (Baseball All-American in 1979-80) and Drew Hastings and Steve Solik (Tennis AllAmericans in 79-80), to bring the number of AllAmericans at Trinity to nine in 1981-82, the largest single contingent of nationally recognized athletes at Trinity at one time.

By the time you read this, Trinity will be well into its fall sports season. Its football team, defending N .E. champs, had ten of eleven starters back on offense in September. The women's soccer team featured a strong blend of veterans and newcomers. Both women's tennis and field hockey were op· timistic about their young squads. Cross Country displayed surprising depth, while a record number turned out for waterpolo. The men's soccer team began to build for the future around a solid defense.

Reunion 1981 Alumni return to the campus for a spring fling.

hey came back in record numbers - more than 1,000 alumni and their families returned to Trinity in June to celebrate the first spring reunion in more than a decade. With 20 reunion classes in attendance, the campus swarmed with activity during the four-day gathering. The diverse program, described as a ''Bantam Vacation,'' offered ingredients for every taste: intellectual stimulation, family recreation, gourmet meals, music and entertainment, and the renewal of fellowship with former classmates. For many alumni, the highlight of the weekend was the chance to return to the classroom to hear Trinity faculty lecture on such diverse topics as "Science and Society,)) "Russia Past and Present,)) philosophy, film and the liberal arts. Golf and tennis tournaments challenged the competitive spirits, while others were content to stroll the campus and seek out familiar faces and places. There was food for the palate as well as the spirit. The Half Century dinner on Thursday night was a notably festive occasion. The following evening, alumni gathered in the deepening shadows of the Quad for an old-fashioned New England clambake complete with lobster, steak, corn-on-thecob, steamers and strawberry shortcake. It was also a time for recognition and remembrance. Awards for alumni excellence and achievement, described in the following pages, highlighted the annual meeting of the Alumni Association. Other notable awards included: the Board of Fellows Bowl for class spirit and alumni fund support - the Class of 1956; the George C. Capen Trophy for outstanding Area Alumni Association - the Trinity Clubs of Cleveland and Washington, D.C.; the Jerome Kahn Award for the reunion class with the largest percentage at reunion - the Class of 1931; the Class of 1934 Trophy for the class with the best record in the Alumni Fund - the Class of 1930; and the Class of 1916 Trophy for the best record in the Alumni Fund of classes out ten years or less - the Class of 1971. Two alumni were recognized for coming the farthest to attend reunion: George Mannweiler '31 travelled from Washington state; David Tyler '56 trekked in from Hawaii. Ray Montgomery '25 was also cited for his years of dedicated service.

"The highlight of the weekend for me was coming upon the Quad in the soft, evening sunlight and finding welcoming tents, drinks, lobsters, and most of all, friends waiting ... " -Margot Clement Clark '71


uFrom beginning to end, it was a very pleasurable experience. The only problem was the plethora of goodies offered; there was no way to attend more than one of the mini路 courses at one time. Keeping the class dinners on campus was a stroke of genius." - Eric Purdon '3 5 Photo by Bob Antaramian

REUNION POTPOURRI. From the moment of registration, alumni and their families plunged into a full round of activities including a New England clambake, golf tournament; the annual meeting of the Alumni Association and the traditional parade down the Long Walk.

Love of law, literature and language has been the wellspring for the bountiful life of this alumnus throughout a long and honorable association with the legal profession. Born in 1888, ten years after the completion of the Long Walk, he has been no less central to the life of his College than these venerable buildings.

On his application to Trinity this alumnus professed an interest in business, but it didn't take him long to discover that, indeed, "there's no business like show business." In a field where sheer talent is almost an everyday commodity, he has gained a reputation as one of the most versatile and creative artists in the theatre.

JOHN ANTHONY OGDEN Class of 1964 THEODORE DAVIDGE LOCKWOOD Class of 1948 Educator, mountaineer, author, skier, philatelist, scholar, photographer, coach and visionary: these may sound like the dreams of Walter Mitty, but they portray, in reality, the diverse and active pursuits of a truly remarkable alumnus.

JOHN EDWARD KELLY Class of 1934

ERHARDT GILLETTE SCHMITT Class of 1916

Thirty-three years in the serious business of law enforcement have done little to mellow the quick Irish wit of this warm-hearted, devoted alumnus. None know his inspirational qualities better than countless Hartford area athletes, who have benefited from his patient encouragement and counsel as their coach and mentor.

According to a line from the Broadway show, "The Music Man," the secret of being a successful salesman is "knowing the territory." Surely, no one h as known his territory better than this engaging alumnus whose incomparable sales career has been the touchstone for Aetna Life & Casualty since 1923.

PAUL ROBERTS Class of 1909

GEORGE PHILLIP LYNCH, JR. Class of 1961

A son and brother of an eminent Trinity family of clergymen, this alumnus has devoted nearly seventy years of his exemplary ministry toward making Christianity an active life force. From urban and rural pulpits in various corners of the nation, he has inspired and enriched the lives of countless parishioners.

Like the- motto of the Marine Corps in which he served with distinction, the phrase "Always Loyal" best characterizes this alumnus. In the two decades since his graduation, he has set standards of active involvement and leadership in the life of his College that few can equal.

raternities, which have been an integral part of the Trinity scene since 1828, are getting a hard look this year by the Trinity faculty. In part, this scrutiny grew out of an unfortunate incident at one of the fraternity houses last spring, resulting in social probation for the house in question. In the wake of the incident, outrage was expressed from many corners of the campus alleging that the fraternity atmosphere generally promoted antisocial behavior, sexist attitudes and exploitation of in~ dividuals, particularly women. An editorial in the student newspaper, The Trinity Tripod, called for the abolishment of the six fraternities and one sorority on the grounds that they were archaic institutions that "effectively denied the humanitarian principles of community spirit." Some of the heat of these accusations was cooled during Awareness Day, when the campus com~ munity devoted an entire day to airing grievances about undergraduate life. Panels on "The En~ for-cement of Morality" and "The Future of Fraternities" drew overflow crowds and featured frank discussions of problems. The faculty, however, kept the issue alive by voting to appoint a committee to study replacing the fraternity system with a network of "houses" open to all students.' The administration, for its part, instituted a new set of guidelines to regulate fraternity life and to extend college regulations into the fraternity houses. The new rules, which have been accepted by the Interfraternity Council, pertain to almost every area of frat life: pledging, house maintenahce, social activities, community relations, and academic standards. The move to strengthen controls over fraternities coincides with the resurgence of these institutions in recent years. During the late 60s and early 70s the houses ¡were in decline as improved campus facilities and political causes made fraternal bonds less at~ tractive to students. Lately, however, fraternities have revived and last fall Trinity's first sorority was formed. Concurrently, other societal forces have also â&#x20AC;˘ come into play and, increasingly, the exclusivity of the Greek~letter organizations have been criticized by other campus groups such as feminist and minority interests, as well as the faculty. The situtation at Trinity reflects a national trend of growing fraternity and sorority popularity on campuses. There have also been problems elsewhere. At Dartmouth, for example, the faculty recom~ mended abolishing frats because of their "uncivilized

behavior and anti~intellectualism." Middlebury, in an effort to regulate fraternity life, has purchased all fraternity property and eliminated dining rooms in the houses. Other colleges and universities have con~ centrated on providing attractive options to fra~ ternities through improved student centers, and in~ creased budgets for all~campus cultural and social events. Whether any of these tactics will work at Trinity, if attempted, is open to question: There is no indi~ cation that the College is prepared to buy fraternity properties and, frankly, we have serious doubts that a string of "independent" houses on Vernon Street would be any more manageable than the present ar~ rangement. The College is planning some major renovations for Mather Campus Center; the im~ proved social and activity space may encourage some appealing alternatives to the fraternity social scene. But, the fact remains that the tenor of campus life is largely determined by students' perceptions of what is socially acceptable. The success of a given event or activity depends solely on the willingness of students to organize it and take part. At present, fraternities dominate the party scene at the College largely because their functions are seen as having the highest social status. Changing student percep~ tions must somehow come from within the under~ graduate body rather than by administrative or faculty edict. There are some encouraging signs that such at~ titudinal changes are taking place. This fall, the Outing Club has revived; the World Affairs Asso~ dation is thriving; the Women's Center is going strong; and a new environmental group is organizing Earth Week. Whether these forces will loosen the fraternity grip on the collective student psyche remains to be seen. It has occurred to us, however, that the real problem may not be the fraternities , but the homo~ geneity of the student body. Surely, a more diverse undergraduate population would foster the develop~ ment of a broader range of student activities and social groupings. Thus, while wt. applaud the faculty interest in fraternity questions, we hope there is equal concern for the more basic problem of diversi~ fying the campus in the years ahead. Accomplishing this end offers the best hope for creating a com~ munity that puts fraternities, if they survive, in proper perspective. WLC

Well! The long awaited "65th" Reunion of the once-great class of 1916 (or so we thought) has come, and gone. Only four of us were fortunate enough to appear at the Half-Century Club Dinner, namely HERB SPENCER, BOB O'CONNOR, GEORGE FERRIS and your scribe "DUTCH" SCHMITT. We were happy to have two of our ladies with us to grace our table, Mary O'Connor and Carol Schmitt. It was sad for us to realize that CHARLES EASTERBY, who had so faithfully attended most earlier reunions, passed on just a short time before the 65th. We hereby offer condolences to his family. Our two former trustees, BOB O'CONNOR and GEORGE FERRIS, were called upon to be recognized, not to mention also your scribe, who was called up to receive the Alumni Medal for Excellence from President Lockwood. I was pu;z;zled indeed to think what I had done until the President intoned as follows: "Perhaps the best thing 'Dutch' Schmitt ever did for Trinity was to send us his son (younger) PETER of the Class of1960."

At any rate, I deeply appreciate this award and wish to thank any and all who were responsible. The memorial service on Sunday was most impressive, but touched with sadness, particularly during the reading of the "Necrology." The reception at the President's house did something to lighten the atmosphere, ending a most interesting Reunion. Class Agent: Robert B. O'Connor

I had a note from HARRY BARBER, Class Agent for 1919. He and Louisa, Class Agent for 1918, are now residing at the Jefferson House, Constance Way, Newington, after a stay in Hartford Hospital where they both were patients. Due to their hospital confinement, they had been obliged to cancel a get-together and luncheon for the Classes of 1917, 1918 and 1919 on the day of the College's 50-year dinner. Recently I stopped in West Hartford for a short visit with RUSS HATHEWAY. Russ has moved across Main Street from an old house he restored in the early 1930s to the Hatheway homestead. Your SECRETARY has just returned from a short trip to Springfield, MO where he attended the 90th anniversary of a cousin. No correspondence received from any of our dozen 1918' ers since the last Reporter. Class Agent: Louisa Pinney Barber

and Olga and RAY MONTGOMERY. E. BRISTOL COOPER was planning to come, but became ill the last minute and could not make it. He's OK now. We missed BILL GOODRIDGE and his wife, the same for the SAMPONAROS, LEO RICCI, NELS VALERIUS and wife and the TAYLOR STONES. We, too, missed AL BIRCH and his wife, who is incapacitated at the moment, but is doing well after a very serious series of physical problems. Also missed were TED and ELIZABETH JONES. Ted had a bad automobile accident a year ago and is still on crutches, he writes. The whole Reunion was a great affair thanks to our very energetic JERRY HANSEN, to whom the Class of '25 expresses its appreciation; also the same to his very capable secretary. Dave Hobson, Olga and RAY MONTGOMERY's grandson, graduated from Yale University on May 24, 1981. David's sister Sara completed her freshman year at the University of Virginia at Charlottesville. AL BIRCH reports that his #1 grandson graduated from Claremont Men's College (California) in 1979, his #2 grandson graduated from the University of Hawaii in 1980, his #3 grandson from the University of California at Berkeley in 1981; two more grandsons, 1 graduated from high school in 1981, the other is in high school, and one granddaughter was graduated from high school in 1981. EDWARD LeWINN writes that his grandson, Kenneth Le Winn Doroslow is a member of the Class of 1985 at Trinity. His late brother was in the Class of 1933, also a medical doctor as Ed is. Ed's son, also a medical doctor, is Trinity '62. KEN SMITH says in a lengthy letter: "For the fourth season, I am in Glimmerglass Opera Company chorus at Cooperstown, this year in Pinafore and Manon Lescout." Smith was among Hall of Fame baseball players and officers who were luncheon guests of President Reagan at the White House, March 27. Trinity's GEORGE WILL '62, columnist, also was present. In his letter Ken enclosed the following Jetter which he re.ceived from President Reagan: "Dear Mr. Smith: Thank you very much for the inscribed copy of Baseball's Hall of Fame that Joseph Canzeri presented to me on your behalf. I have been enjoying your book and intend to keep it close at hand. Your thoughtfulness in sharing this work with me is indeed appreciated. With all best wishes, Sincerely, Ronald Reagan." DAVID !lADLOW was married this summer to Mary Mallory Pattison. The wedding took place at Groton Long Point July 18. Congratulations to both charming people and a happy life together. Your SECRETARY is looking .forward to the football season and hopes to see a lot of you Twenty-Fivers at the games. The Class bids farewell to our departing President Ted Lockwood and wishes him well in whatsoever he may do. And we welcome our new President James F. English, Jr. and pledge our wholehearted allegiance. Class Agent: George Malcolm-Smith

It should be noted that the College really lived up to and exceeded its advance notices of the June 4-7 Reunion on campus. As usual the Half-Century Club cocktail party and the following dinner were superb. Your SECRETARY had the pleasure of escorting the widows of BILL TOWILL '27 and RON CONDON '28. The three of us, along with ANDY FORRESTER and his Annabell made up a very pleasant fivesome under the 1927 banner. It's just too bad that other classmates did not show to enjoy it all. The Alumni Parade from Northam to the Field House was, I'm sure, the longest and largest in history. Strangely enough the oldest class, leader of the parade, was a goodly bunch from 1925 led by (who else?) Major Domino RAY MONTGOMERY. At least 1927 tied with

Rev. Canon Francis Belden 411 Griffin Rd. So. Windsor, CT 06074

1926 as your Chairman and Secretary trudged along behind JIM BURR and HERB NOBLE. Following the presentation of awards, a delightful lunch was furnished which seemed to be enjoyed by all. Next year's Reunion will be our 55th and let's hope that there will be a reasonable group of 1927-ers attending. Make your plans now! By the time you get this the 1981 football season may well be underway. Why not plan on attending at least one of the four home games? ROGER HARTT and his bride will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on November 14! Congratulations and best wishes for many more! Class Agent: Rev. Robert Y. Condit

Since he retired, Bill and his wife Kay have been living in LaJolla, CA. and now they plan to spend half the year in each place.

It is noted that John has added to his other volunteer activities that of assistant coach of the women's softball team. BILL HARING has been elected to the Board of Property Owners, Hilton Head - he states, an unexpected honor. JOHN MASON and Phyllis continue their interest in Trin's crew activities. Recently got together with CHUCK KINGSTON, recovering from knee surgery (old football injuries), along with Helen and Mazie Smith; also, BRYANT GREEN and Betsy who were in Connecticut for a few weeks visiting old friends and relatives and enjoying the New England summer. They both look well and are pleased with Vero Beach as a place of retirement. We note with sadness and yet with joy the fine tribute paid to SEYMOUR SMITH to whom Trinity's Treasurer's Report. was recently dedicated. Class Agent: John E. Kelly

For several short days '35ers gathered "Neath the Elms" (Ashes) and in '81 relived '31-'35. For those who couldn't make it, here is a list of those young fellows who did: JACK AMPORT, BILL ANGUS, BERT BASKERVILLE, BILL BUESS, IKE EIGENBAUER, DENNY FARNELL, TOM HAGARTY, STEVE COFFEY, BILL CURTIS, GEORGE DICKERSON, FRED DUENNEBIER, ORSON HART, JOHN HERALD, OLLIE JOHNSON, LUKE KELLAM, BOB LAU, JACK MAHER, HARRY OLSON, ERIC PURDON, SIS SAMPERS, JOHN SHAW, CHAPPlE WALKER, BILL WALKER, BILL WETHERILL and JOHN ZIETLOW. If I missed anyone, let me know and I'll amend the roster. Thanks to those who have contributed to the Bill Warner Fund. It's coming along slowly but surely.

JOHN ZIETLOW, in a cryptic note, says he's busy and struggling with the IRS. Good hunting, John. The Reverend J. ROBERT MARKS is now retired after serving in Calvary Church in McDonough for 25 years. He is serving as Priest-in-charge of vacancies in the Diocese of Central New York. BILL ANGUS has also announced his retirement from F. A. McCluer, Inc. Bill was involved with wool but not wool gathering. Welcome to the club, Bill. Class Agent: Dr. Orson H. Hart

36 We've received a note from STEWART OGILVY commenting on Reunion. "The 45th Reunion of 'Perfect '36,' Trinity's Great Flood Class, was a spendid event. The campus has never looked lovelier. The early June dates, well chosen for perfect weather, also avoided conflict with undergraduate activities. No previous reunion has enjoyed such excellent facilities. Men and wives had comfortable suites in the newest dormitory, where we swapped stories of 1932-36 till the early hours. Really delicious meals were served at Mather Hall, in the Austin Arts Center, and 'neath the elms. We saw the Eigenbrodt Trophy awarded to retiring P~;;exy Ted Lockwood. And fascinating 'mini-courses' gave us a brief up-dating in science, art, literature, and economics by members of Trinity's outstanding faculty. We much enjoyed the competitive camaraderie of sharing Reunion functions and living quarters with the Class of 1935 (which outshone us in attendance). But we deeply missed those '36ers who could not be with us." Class Agent: Albert M. Dexter, Jr.

The news on '37 continues to emphasize Florida and retirement activities. BILL HULL writes that he and BRUCE RANDALL had a great day together in Saratoga last March. ED LEHAN journeyed from Boca Raton to visit GEORGE LEPAK who now lives year 'round in Port Ritchey, FL. PAUL WETHERILL is now retired and says he is "just enjoying the Florida sun" while pursuing his hobbies of model trains and stamp collecting. AL DOTY, now of Naples, FL is hoping to see all class members at our 45th reunion next June. BILL HULL has the idea that with so much Florida activity, it might be a good idea to work up a mini-reunion there and suggests that class members planning to be in the greater Tampa Bay area next winter let him know or pass the word to your secretary. JIM HENDERSON, currently serving as president of the Independent Schools Association of the Central States, plans to retire next June. Jim and his wife Ruth recently moved to a new home at 4231 Franklin Ave., Western Spring, IL 60558. Class Agent: William G. Hull

CARL HODGDON writes that he and his wife Alice still enjoy good health, spend time traveling, fishing and perfecting their golf game. Carl lives now in Williamsburg, VA, and writes that he is endeavoring "to inculcate the concept of fiscal responsibility in the minds of the local political managers." We had news from JOHN TIEDEMAN who manages to golf 3-4 days a week and is traveling the world at every opportunity, recently to Portugal, Egypt, Greece and Turkey. He is also the financial consultant to Faith Presbyterian Church in Sun City, AZ. John_ has been retired from the banking business since 1973. We report a return to Scotland for further research by JOHN DeMONTE who is busy compiling the 1981 edition of

Writing Your Will? We hope you will think ofTrinity. Recent important changes in the tax laws should result in more money available for your heirs, less for the government. For example, after 1987 there will be no Federal Estate Tax on estates ofless than $600,000.

It is advisable to review your will in light of the changes in the tax laws. If you have no will, you should consider writing one soon. In situations where there is no will, property is distributed according to state law. Trinity can provide you with basic information on the new tax laws, and on wills and estate plans. We will be happy to work with you or your ad~ visers to determine the most eco~ nomical and tax~saving ways to make charitable contributions. Alfred C.

As for himself, he is still very busy with scientific consulting in air pollution control problems. ROBERT WHITSITT '42 corresponds with HANK HAYDEN about their common interest - water color paintings. GEORGE GREENLEAF has been participating in several congresses. He attended the ICME-IV at the University of California, Berkeley, ICME-II at the University of Exeter in England, and the International Congress for Math Educators in West Germany. George returned to New Zealand in February where he taught math and physics at Taurenga College in the fifties.

The 40th Reunion, like all previous ones, was a great success, thanks largely to our permanent Reunion chairman, RAY THOMSEN. Ray and Joan will be retiring and moving to Rhode Island in October, and we can only hope that from that distance he will be able to keep a firm hand on the reunion tiller. In attendance for one function or another, and many with their wives, were DICK BARNES, DICK BLAISDELL, MOE BORSTEIN, LOU BUCK, JOHN CARPENTER, DON DAY, STAN ENO, ROY GILLEY, ALDEN JOHNSON, HENRY KAPLAN, FRANK KELLY, TED KNUREK, JOE LAVIERI, TOM MALLEY, IRWIN MANCALL, CLARKE NICKERSON, BILL OLIVER, CULLEY ROBERTS, PHIL

SEHL, ED SMITH, PHIL SMITH, RAY THOMSEN and BILL WILEY. The Friday night clambake was outstanding, with beautiful weather and a sickle moon shining over the campus. The high point of Saturday was the Alumni Parade in which I can safely say the Class of '41 attracted the most attention since it was led by one of the antique automobiles from ED SMITH's collection: a 1931 Packard coupe, in which the Reunion Committee rode mstyle. It provided a history lesson for some of the younger alumni who could finally see with their own eyes such legendary accessories as running boards and a rumble seat. DAVID E. CALLAGHAN who was, prior to his death, one of our reunion regulars, was present in spirit. I received a nice note from his widow, Chris, who sent her best wishes for our get-together and enclosed a generous contribution to the Alumni Fund. BILL OLIVER has retired from the First National Bank of Boston after a career which took him as far afield as Argentina and Haiti. He and Harriet will be living at 1345 Almiranta Lane, Castaway Cove, Vero Beach, FL. They will be not far from LOU and Dottie BUCK, who are spending the winter portions of their retirement years in VeroBeach. HARRY JOHNSON reports that he has been retired from active duty as Colonel with the Army Corps of Engineers and is living at 7460 Fairway Two Avenue, Fair Oaks, CA.

Our own MIKE KELLIN "wowed 'em" in West Hartford recently with a twohour telethon to benefit the Greater Hartford Jewish Federation. Mike also visited with children at Solomon Schechter Day School and recreated his


summer stock role of Tevye for senior citizens at the Hartford Jewish Community Center. If all that is any indication of the amount of time Mike spends in volunteer work, it's no wonder he was named volunteer of the year by the Rockland County (NY) Mental Health Association. The master of ceremonies at that affair was GEORGE VESSART '48. "EV" GAMBLE retired from U.S. Airlines in 1978 and is now president of Gamble Farms, Inc. in Washington, NC. JAMES DENNY tells us he is enjoying raising two grandchildren, a boy and a girl. When not grandfathering, he works directly with the dean of the college of engineering at the University of West Virginia. GRENVILLE McVICKAR writes, "I am dedicated to the use of solar energy and have joined the National Solar Corp. of Centerbrook, CT, manufacturers of superior solar panels for domestic and commercial hot water heating systems." PETER PETERSON "finally became a grandparent!" When Peter wrote us, Justin Charles Taylor was 16 months old. Peter also tells us he's been jogging for the last 10 years. ROBERT HALL is also a grandfather, and not for the first time. Bob's grandson Nathan M. Irwin was born last February, and Kimberly Shannon Hall was born in May,1975.

Our 30th Reunion was a great experience for all of us who attended and is now a very pleasant memory to hold and to look forward to our 35th. 1951's own JERRY HANSEN orchestrated a most enjoyable and full four days with outstanding food at all meals. At our Saturday night dinner, combining the classes of 1950 and 1951, the following class officers were elected: Pres·i dent BOB ELLIOTT, Vice President DAVE BLAIR, Secretary LOU RADEN and Class Agent JIM CURTIN. We, Mary and I, arrived on campus Friday prepared as "old" alumni to buy out the bookstore of T-shirts, handbags, scarfs, rain jackets, etc. and the first people we sighted were DICK and Cathy MECASKEY falling out of their station wagon, tired with too long a car trip from Cleveland, OH. After registering and meeting for lunch many old friends from Classes of '50 and '51, all of whom looked in excellent physical condition, we toured the campus and found the memories most pleasant. At the clambake on the Quad Friday evening, we enjoyed dinner with KING and Jean HOWARD, CLIFF STARK, NORM and Ann WACK, JOHN MeGA W and BILL and Barb ROBINSON '50. Also heard BILL and Ruth VAN LANEN say that they took a golf lesson that day from par shooter JIM CURTIN on how to hit into trees to birdie a hole. Discovered that evening that many of our class have taken to condominium living (like us), and have thus eased their lifestyle. We sold our old home on Pine Lake in Orchard Lake, MI (after our two

daughters' weddings - one last September and one last December) and we are very pleased with this easier form of "laid back" living. At our Saturday night dinner, we were once again joined by the Class of '50. Rev.

You need only look as far as the New York Times of last April to find news of our class. In an article on the new lower calorie, lower alcohol wines, ALEX SGOUTAS, vice president for marketing for the Somerset Wine Company in New York, is quoted in an article on the new "light" wines. Alex points out that the lower alcohol content wines are simply a product of harvesting the grapes before they reach their maximum sugar levels and of arresting the fermentation process. A number of our medical colleagues have been in touch recently. RICH CARLSON is currently director of the Columbia University Health Service. Rich heads a staff of 25 physicians seeing approximately 1,000 students and staff each week, and he is also the health officer for Columbia University. DAVE CHARLESWORTH writes that he has just finished training in cardiac surgery in Toronto, and says that he spends free time after the first snow skiing at Alta which is just 20 minutes from his home in Salt Lake City.

Rich lives in Mercer Island, WA. We heard from NELSON SCHLATTER that he is now a product development chemist with the Edmont Division of Becton Dickson and Company.

Congratulations and thank you's are in order to CHARLEY KURZ for the wonderful job he did as our Class Agent for a number of years during which we successfully exceeded our goals. Although he was a bit disappointed that we never got all of the members of our class to participate, we did do quite well and we are grateful for your leadership, Charley. Charley also wrote to say that he had attended three (3) luncheons this

past year that were sponsored by the Philadelphia Trinity Alumni Association and featured WILLIAM MARIMON, Richie Ashburn and Alumni Trustee MARSHALL BLUME. Incidentally, our new class agent is ROGER DERDERIAN and I hope that all in our class will work with him in helping us continue to exceed our goals. DON BROWNE sent us such a long, wonderful letter last spring that I want to quote it in its entirety: "I have said too often I should contribute something to your efforts to let people know what and where the Class of '67 is ... so here goes. "Following 18 months in Germany with the Army in the Finance Corps, Ireturned to New York and Citibank in August, 1969 prepared to emigrate to Australia. Citibank offered me a position with the Overseas Division, so I returned to Germany, was married, and after three months in Bombay, India, eventually ended up in London for six years. In mid-1976 I arrived in Indonesia in charge of a small marketing unit. "I have travelled all over the world with the exception of South and Central America these last eleven years. Last February I was happily divorced (no children), had become a vegetarian and gave up all alcohol. I spent five weeks in January, 1980 wandering around Sri Lanka with a small pack, looking for the 路 . answer to why we are alive and found it ultimately with some Buddhist Monks. ''I was remarried to a wonderful Chinese-Indonesian girl a year later and am leading a wonderful existence here. My wife is an ex-tennis pro who worked for Peter Burwash International of Honolulu and was a regular participant in Indonesian tournaments. She now runs her own preschool for three-to-five-yearolds of many different nationalities and still gives limited private tennis lessons, which is how I met her last year. "I am twenty pounds lighter than I was at Trinity in June, 1967 and work out regularly now, including three to four hours of tennis a week with my wife, whom I cannot yet beat. She was also the number two swimmer on the Indonesian National Women's Team ten years ago. "At the bank I am responsible for a marketing division covering the public sector, Japanese business, and a large part of our local Indonesian client base. I still live in a full apartment at the garden level in the Hotel Borobudur (Intercontinental) which leads to a 23-acre garden with six tennis courts, two squash courts and a swimming pool. We work an average of 50 hours per week at the bank but life is still beautiful here. I have no idea when I will leave. "P.S. Visitors from Trinity would be interesting to see if ever in the area." RICK STULTZ sent an exciting announcement of the formation of Innovest, a company whose purpose is to continue and expand upon work he has done in the investment real estate field. The company will sponsor limited partnerships and assist in the brokerage of investment real estate. His main function will ' be to consult real estate investors regarding analysis and the structuring of acquisitions, dispositions, leasing alternatives and refinancing.

Books SATYRDAY By Steven Bauer '70 (Berkeley Publishing Co. $11.95,211 pages) Reviewed by ]on Zonderman '79

Is mythology an art or a science? The study of mythology probably can be considered science, a part of anthropology. The creation of mythology is probably an art, because of its attention to the needs of the human spirit. People need something they can believe in, and it usually isn't other people. With the state of the world declining, or so the rhetoriticians of both the left and the right tell us, people need a reaffirmation of what is human -love and compassion mostly. Satyrday attempts to give that reaffirmation. Author Steven Bauer or his editor has labeled the book a fable and, true to the definition of that form, a lesson is presented and anthropomorphized animal characters are the instruments of the presentation. In Satyrday we are presented with a classic confrontation of good and evil. The wicked Owl has sent his footsoldiers, the ravens, to capture the moon and steal her light from the night sky. With the moon, and later the sun if the Owl gets his way, gone from the sky, he will be master of the earth. For now, the Owl commands his legions from the Deadwood Forest, which he has held since making his first foray into battle against light 14 years earlier. As soon as the moon disappears, all

the creatures of the earth know things are not right. As the wind; the same wind that had sprung up 14 years ago, again whips over the earth, Derin, the boy, is sent into fits of nightmare. The animals, including Matthew, the Satyr, who raised Derin from infancy in the absence of other humans, are reminded of the night of the first wind, a night they would all rather forget. A raven, Deirdre, appears from the Deadwood Forest to warn Matthew, whom she knows from the time of the first wind, about the Owl's plans. Derin and Matthew take off from the fields to rescue the moon. Deirdre, at first a solitary dissenter in the minions of soldiers following the Owl's orders, begins to get support from other disgruntled ravens. For five days Matthew and Derin travel. During that five-day jou_rney Bauer unveils for us his full line of thematic and metaphorical wares. Also in that five days the Owl loses his grip on his troops until, in the end, they do him in. But while we are expecting the mutiny to come from the growing group of disaffected ravens, it is the Owl's counterpart to the SS, the elite corps of falcons, that turns on and assassinates him. In many ways, Satyrday is more of a writer's book than a reader's. It is a book more concerned with language and imagery than with character and plot. It is the kind of hook one would expect would be the first novel of a poet and a graduate of a master's of fine arts in writing program. Many of the devices are obvious and at times the imagery and metaphor are somewhat heavy-handed. The struc-

ture of the book, from Sunday to Satyrday, is reminiscent of Genesis. But Bauer is constrained by the form. Towards the fourth and fifth days Derin and Matthew's adventures become episodic, like a serial with one more cliffhanger and one more escape. And Bauer's ending is, at best, obtuse. Since the beginning of his journey, Derin has had a secret agenda. Deirdre informed him that his people - the humans- have been imprisoned for 14 years by the Owl in the southernmost reaches of the Deadwood Forest. Derin decides to free them, but when he gets to the walled internment camp where they are, he cannot. He burrows his way through the wall and encounters the stench of hundreds of bodies in one place. When one human emerges Derin is sickened by the twisted body, blind from lack of light and emaciated. He refuses to free them, but does accept an infant, just as Matthew had accepted him from the hooded stranger 14 years earlier. Whether this is symbolic of the refusal of most people to deal with the imprisonment of the minds and bodies of much of the world's population is an open question. The book does not seem that political, but there aren't too many other explanations. Author Steven Bauer '70, a graduate of the MFA program at the Uni~ersity of Massachusetts, teaches creative writing at Colby College. Now at work on a second novel, he has published poetry in The Nation, North American Review and other magazines. Reviewer Jon Zonderman '79, a freelance writer, earned a Master's degree from the Columbia University School of Journalism, which awarded him a Pulitzer Fellowship.
