At press time, the campus was saddened to learn of the death of retired Trinity soccer, squash and tennis coach, Roy A. Oath, at age 58. Oath established a record 400 career victories in these three sports, and built the squash and soccer programs up to national prominence. A highly regarded teacher and loyal friend to many alumni, Roy will be sorely missed. A complete obituary will appear in the next issue of the Reporter.

Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk COMPUTING GETS A BOOST

2

Computer instruction and research, which has been part of the undergraduate curriculum at Trinity since 1964, has betm strengthened considerably by the addition of a VAX 111750 computer. Purchase of the new equipment was made possible by a $133,500 grant from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. "This equipment represents the most advanced computer technology," according to Dr. August Sapega, professor of engineering, who supervises academic computing. "It has 4 times as much memory and is 20 times faster than the machine now used at the College. These features will allow us to offer computing instruction to a greater number of students," he added. The VAX 111750 utilizes three computer languages: BASIC, PAS CAL and FORTRAN.It replaces an older PDP 11/34 system, which will be shifted to word processing, supporting up to 16 work stations and relieving increased pressure on the computing facilities . Cited by the National Science Foundation as an "exemplar institution" for its use of computing instruction, T rinity introduced a computer coordinate major to its curriculum in 1976. This program allows students to combine their interest in computers with study in other major dt:;partments. Undergraduates electing this option have linked computing with traditional science disciplines such as engineering, chemistry and mathematics, and with fields as varied as economics, psychology, political science, German, English, intercultural studies and sociology. Trinity offers an introductory course in computing that enrolls 100 or more undergraduates each semester. It is estimated that half of all Trinity students will have taken the computer course by the time they graduate. Computing facilities are available for use 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the academic year. In the past faculty members, assisted by students trained on the academic computer, have aided public and private agencies in the Capitol Region by evaluating data and conducting needs assessments. Among the

OREGONIAN WILLIAM STAFFORD brought a breath of fresh air to the campus when he visited in March as Frederick L. Gwynn Memorial Poet. Author of 18 books and a recipient of the National Book Award, Stafford beguiled audiences with his relaxed, direct manner and unconventional approach to the creative process. As a writing teacher, he refuses to assign letter grades, prefer路 ring instead to have students test out their ideas on each other in class and within their own minds, until a personal evaluation has taken place. Stafford's re路 ceptive and non-judgemental presence made the process work for Trinity undergraduates and in workshops with students and teachers from Hartford public high schools. Stafford was the Poetry Center's fifth poet-in-residence.

participating agencies are: the Hartford Housing Authority, the City of Hartford, Asylum Hill, Inc., the State Banking Department, Southside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance, Hartford Architecture Conservancy, ConnPIRG, Broad-Park Development Corporation, Summerstage, and the Connecticut Prison Association.

ENERGY COSTS TOP $1 MILLION YEARLY Even as the College marks success in achieving a balanced budget for the thirteenth consecutive year, it struggles increasingly to keep rising energy costs in check. In the fiscal year 1980-8 1, for example, costs for providing gas, oil, water and electricity campus-wide exceeded $1,100,000. Translated into a more personal statistic this amounts to a cost of

$678 per student. This sizeable sum, however, now looks unrealistically low for the current academic year, when the costs just for gas used in the main substation have increased by 26 percent. At fault in the continuing spiral are resource prices which drive up energy costs, since the College has had considerable success in the conservation area. A computer-regulated energy management system, which monitors temperatures in buildings around campus, has been helpful in curbing usage; fuel consumption alone has been cut by 50 percent. The Energy Management Committee, a task force of interested faculty, students and administrators, has been working for over a year to come up with creative solutions to the campus' energy problems such as improved insulation in certain areas. Students also have continually been included in College energy conservation programs.


Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Figures for the 1981-82 fiscal year through March show usage to be less the problem than energy costs, however. Electricity charges through March were $323,765, compared with $276,696 for the same period last year. This represents a 17 percent increase in dollars, for a four percent increase in consumption. The same trend is apparent in the figures for gas consumption through March, which is up two percent over the same period last year, while the cost is up 26 percent. The expenditure for gas through March was $486,142, compared with $384,492 for the period through March, '81, and already more than the $475,692 expended in the entire previous year. In the face of such dismal trends, Riel Crandall, director of buildings and grounds at Trinity, remains resolute. Acknowledging that there is little that can be done about resource price escalation, he focuses his efforts instead on

consumption. "If we can continue to cut down utilization, we're automatically cutting costs," Crandall says. Electricity usage is an area he continually stresses, because he feels that all members of the College community can have a hand in using less. Kilowatt consumption has been cut by 20 percent, and Crandall would like to see it reduced by another 10 percent. His department is currently involved in a lighting survey, to see where further corrective action can be taken.

PSYCHOLOGY HONOR SOCIETY REACTIVATED As one of several current efforts to improve the intellectual life on campus and generate additional interest in academic pursuits, the national honor society in psychology, Psi Chi, has formed a chapter at Trinity. Founded in 1929, Psi Chi's purpose is "to advance the science of psychology

THIS MAY marked the revival, after a ten-year lag, of the traditional presentation of the lemon squeezer to that undergraduate class whose "aggregate excellence in scholarship, moral chara~ter and the qualities requisite to popularity" merited receipt of the coveted object. Accordingly, at a spring weekend concert featuring, among other bands, "Squeeze," Lyn Snodgrass, right, representing the senior class, made the presentation to freshman Kathleen O'Connor. Just after this jubilant pose was struck, three members of the junior class collaborated in a daring theft, by relay, of the ancient relic. Snodgrass took off in pursuit, and after a lengthy chase, recovered the squeezer for the Class of '85.

and to encourage, stimulate and maintain scholarship of the individual members." The society offers its membership the chance to participate in activities on the national level and to present papers for publication. An earlier chapter of the society was formed at Trinity in 1959, but the organization disappeared in the late sixties along with a number of other academic honorary groups. Psi Chi's revival brings the number of honor societies at Trinity to five. The others are: Delta Phi Alpha (German); Phi Beta Kappa (general scholarship); Pi Gamma Mu (social science); and Sigma Delta Pi (Spanish). Sixteen students have been admitted to Psi Chi membership: Daniel J. Barach, Esther Y.P. Chan, Sandra B.Y. Chin, James M. Dod, Lisa]. Donahue, Thomas G. Eid, Sandra L. Frazier, Allison C. Howe, Meredith A. Lounsbury, Debra L. Mandela, Tom as G. Mathews, Judith C. Mercer, Lisa A. Nebbia, Andrei Poludnewycz, Douglas A. Rollins and Rima Sirota. Faculty advisors are Professors William M. Mace and Sharon D. Herzberger of the Psychology Department.

TRINITY STUDENTS LOBBY FOR EDUCATION In keeping with the trend towards increased activism among undergraduates, a busload of 48 Trinity students travelled to Washington D.C. this spring to oppose the Reagan Administration's proposed cutbacks in student financial aid. More than 5,000 students from all parts of the nation took part in National Student Action Day on March 1, descending upon representatives and senators to talk firsthand about the consequences of aid reductions. In its budget proposals for 1983, the Administration has suggested elimination of three existing aid programs (Supplemental Grants, Direct Loans and State Student Incentive Grants), along with major cuts in Pel! Grants and the Trio Program, and significant alterations in the Guaranteed Student Loan Program. To make up for losses in federal funding, Trinity has allocated $1 million from current operating revenues for

financial aid next year, an increase of a quarter million over the current year and a half million more than a year ago. This data was among the information students shared with Congressmen during the Washington sojourn. Leaving Trinity at midnight, the students arrived in the nation's capitol at dawn to prepare for the day's events, beginning with a press conference by Representative Peter Peyser (D-NY). The remainder of the morning was devoted to briefing sessions designed to inform students of the issues. During the afternoon the fledgling lobbyists visited the offices of their senators and representatives to express concern over the financial aid issue. The day culminated with a rally on the Capitol steps where House Speaker Tip O'Neill and other speakers voiced their support for restoring the cuts and lauded the students for their efforts. The participants returned to Hartford encouraged by their labors. Senior Daniel Cave, president of the Connecticut Independent Student Coalition, commented, "The lobbying effort gave ~ a clear message to Congress and the ~ President that college students, both ~ public and private, are extremely ~ angered by the proposed cutb~cks. We ~ have to maintain the ability for each student, regardles~ of income, to have access to any institution of higher learning."

CAMPUS OBSERVES AWARENESS WEEK Building on the spirit generated by last year's Awareness Day, a coalition of student groups expanded the awareness theme into a weeklong observance in April, featuring nationally known speakers, group discussions, exhibits and other events. During the week students and faculty explored a wide range of current issues including religious and racial prejudice, sexism, the arms race, nuclear power, environmental problems, alcoholism and student activism. Each day the schedule included lunchtime discussions led by faculty, afternoon seminars in the Cave and an evening lecture or other activities such as the alcohol awareness program in the Pub and a 29-hour dance marathon benefitting multiple sclerosis.

AWARENESS WEEK highlights included addresses by Benjamin Hooks, exec路 utive director of the NAACP (top left) and consumer advocate Ralph Nader (top right). Climax of the week was a day-long event on the Quad, featuring exhibits by environmental groups such as the Connecticut Cetacean Society.


Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Early in the week a large audience gathered in the Washington Room to hear a talk on "Reaganomics and the Black Community" by Benjamin Hooks, executive director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. In his address, Hooks stated that President Reagan "has presided over some of the most fiscally irresponsible actions that this nation has ever known." According to Hooks, the American public voted for Reagan because he "sounded his bugle loud and clear." Hooks observed, however, that "Reagan's bugle is sounding the call for retreat - to move backwards against all the social progress that has been made ... trying to balance the budget on the backs of the poor." He emphasized that Reagan's policies and cuts hurt all of the poor, both black and white. "This is not a racial thing," he told the audience. "We are all in this together." Awareness Week culminated in an all-clay celebration on the Quad where students visited exhibits and booths manned by various environmental groups including the Sierra Club, the National Audubon Society, Green Peace, ConnPIRG, the Connecticut Cetacean Society and the Appalachian Mountain Club. Keynote speaker for the day was consumer advocate Ralph Nader, who spoke to a crowd of more than 1,000 undergraduates on "Student Activism in the 1980's." In an hour-long address Nader told students that they would never be as free as they are now to pioneer, to question, to challenge, and to take risks. "The purpose of a liberal arts education," he said, "is to make you a broader-based and objective citizen. Instead of memorization, regurgitation, and vegetation, work on a real life problem as part of your course work." Lauding Trinity's internship program and the campus lobbying organization, ConnPIRG, Nader observed that students today are less apathetic and less naive than their counterparts in the fifties. "Student activism all comes down to what kind of society you want to shape," he observed. "If you 're a bystander, someone else will make decisions for you." Citing the two most important goals

of our lifetime as "The solar conversion of the economy and control of the arms race," Nader criticized the Reagan Administration for its inaction on both counts. "We must appreciate how long it will take this country to recover from these four years," he concluded. At the end of the successful week, Student Coordinators Carolyn Ginsburgh '82 and John Kalishman '84 expressed satisfaction with the community's involvement in the various programs along with the hope that the heightened awareness would carry over into succeeding years.

HYLAND NAMED DANA PROFESSOR Dr. Drew A. Hyland has been named Charles A. Dana Professor of Philosophy at the College. In announcing the appointment, President English said, "We are pleased to appoint Professor Hyland, one of our fines t scholars and teach ers, to a Dana professorship. These positions have provided the College with financial support to ensure our ability to attract and retain outstanding faculty at T rinity." The Dana Foundation awarded T rinity a $250,000 grant in 1974 to provide supplementary compensation for four full professors at the College. Currently, there are Dana professors in the de-

numerous articles. He is currently researching a book on the significance of play for human beings. A professor of philosophy at Trinity since 1975, Hyland was chairman of the philosophy department from 1974-1977. He is former president, and currently a member of the executive council, of the Philosophic Society for the Study of Sport. The Charles A. Dana Foundation of Greenwich, Connecticut, was founded in 1950 by the late Charles A. Dana, an attorney, businessman and philanthropist. The foundation makes grants primarily in the fields of higher education and health. Trinity received a $105,000 challenge grant from the Dana Foundation in 1977 to stimulate increased contributions and greater participation in t he A lumni Fund.

ANNUAL GIVING RECORD PREDICTED

Drew Hyland

A record-breaking finish is in sight forT rinity's Annual Fund Campaign, which comes to a close June 30. At the end of the first week in May the Annual Fund stood at 83 percent of its $900,000 goal, with a total of$748,000 in gifts received. "We've reached a milestone," says Annual Fund Chairman Edward A. Montgomery Jr. '56. "It looks like the Annual Fund may exceed $1 million for the first time this year. We are counting on those alumni who have not yet sent in t heir 1981-82 contributions to bring us over the top." A highlight of this spring's campaign was the two-day student phonothon

held at Connecticut Public Television April12 and 13. In four hours of telephoning, 34 students raised $12,573 from 301 alumni. The College is beginning to see results from the Reunion Giving Program started last year. The Class of '62 will set a recorq for 20th reunion giving and the Class of '57, celebrating its 25th this spring, will also make a strong showing. Alumni Fund Chairman, Robert C. Knox III '63, predicts, "A tradition that encourages alumni to do something special in major reunion years will put Trinity on a secure footing for the future." Credit for this year's overwhelming success goes to more than 500 volunteers, according to Montgomery. "Trinity's supporters take President Reagan's challenge to the private sector seriously. We have had many gratifying votes of confidence in the form of increased donations from graduates as well as from the business community and foundations. We owe it all to the good will generated by class agents and our many other volunteer workers."

ALCOHOL AWARENESS PROGRAM LAUNCHED A plan to raise student awareness about the effects of alcohol abuse is getting financial support from an unlikely source - the campus pub. Beginning in April, five percent of the gross receipts from sales at Trinity's Iron Pony Pub is being turned over to a new organization on campus, the T rinity Alcohol Awareness Program (T AAP). The eight fraternities and sororities on campus are also kicking in one dollar per member to TAAP. Other funding is coming from the Dean of Students Office. At its opening event, held appropriately in the Pub, T AAP members distributed literature on drinking as well as bookmarks, posters and buttons. A "portoclinic," loaned by the engineering department at Aetna Life and Casualty, was also available for Pub

patrons. The device measures a number of skills needed for safe driving, such as visual acuity, depth perception, reaction time, and field of vision. Students used this equipment before and after drinking to see how alcohol affects these functions. T AAP was initiated by Paula ChuRichardson, assistant dean of students. She has met weekly with about ten students, including representatives from student government and the inter-fraternity council, to discuss the uses of alcohol on campus and what constructive action can be taken to address the abuses. "We're not out to abolish alcohol on campus," explains Chu-Richardson. "We want to make TAAP members and the Trinity community more aware of the physical and social consequences of consuming alcoholic beverages." The subject of alcohol awareness merited a two-page center spread in the April20 issue of the Trinity Tripod, the campus newspaper. Headlined, "Alcohol: Does Trinity Have A Problem?", the spread featured a composite of interviews with students and college

STUDENTS SPONSOR HEARTFORD CAMPAIGN A series of activities held on campus during February and March raised about $1000 for a locq.l social service agency. Called "The Heartford Campaign," the fund-raising events were sponsored by a dozen or so undergraduates who, according to coordinator]. Patrick Morris '82, "wanted to stimulate some awareness at Trinity of the problems of Hartford, and to make Hartford mor~ aware of us." During the weeks of the campaign, the "Heartford company" sponsored a casino night, a gong show, a Western dance, some "happy hours," hosted by the Resident Coordinators, and musical events in the Pub. They publicized the campaign on campus and at other Hartford colleges through the student newspaper and lapel buttons. Though Morris and Kathy Aiken '84, another participant in the effort, were disappointed that they fell short of their fund-raising goal, both think it is a good idea that, given greater student participation, could be very successful. The proceeds of the campaign will be

MORE THAN 150 Trinity alumni, all of whom participated in theatre at Trinity, gathered in New York City in March for a party to honor retiring professor of theatre arts George E. Nichols III. The evening was highlighted by the announcement that Nichols' friends and former students had created two new prizes in his name, to be awarded annually on Honors Day, to undergraduates who have excelled in theatre arts. Pictured here are Victor Keen '63, Nichols, Stephen Roylance '73, Edwin Bailey '58 and Wilbur Jones '54.

staff about drinking at Trinity, as well as charts on the effects of alcohol on mental processes and behavior, and mixing drinking and drugs. While none of those interviewed felt that Trinity's alcohol problem was more serious than on other campuses, all respondents were supportive of T AAP's initiatives. T AAP is planning future discussions at the fraternities and dormitories and also sponsoring a campaign to urge that alternative beverages be made more readily available at campus functions.

TRINITY PAPERS INAUGURATED A new journal- the Trinity Paperswas launched this semester as a means of recognizing and disseminating outstanding student term papers, critical essays and research projects. The inaugural issue, published in late May, includes eleven articles from a broad spectrum of disciplines in the humanities and sciences. Among the topics covered are: "Letting the Mind See Beyond the Eyes," "The Dynamics of Alienation in French Black Literature," "The Effect

ofMariolatry and Courtly Love on the Feminine Ideal in Medieval Art," and "Lateral Shifts in Symmetry of Evoked Cortical Responses During a Silent Verbal Task: Effects of Handedness and Familial Sinistrality." Initiated by the President's Fellows (a group composed of one leading senior in each department and program) and funded by the President's Office, the Papers will appear annually under the direction of a board of undergraduate editors. Authors of works selected for publication receive certificates of recognition at Honors Day. Nearly four dozen students submitted a total of 59 papers for the first issue. In announcing creation of the journal in January, the editors stated that its purpose is "to recognize academic excellence at this institution." Articles of interest to both a general audience and specialized audiences are eligible, and the only restriction is that the work have been done while the author was enrolled as aTrinity student. The founding editors and the fields they represent as President's Fellows are: James Dod, psychology; Maxwell Edusei, urban & environmental studies; Andrew Goldberg, physics; William Griswold, art history; Karen

A I).ew sorority has been formed on campus, and an "old" fraternity may be revived. 路 The Zeta Theta chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma has received its charter and, after a rush in February, initiated twenty-six women as members. According to A. Chandlee Johnson '84, a founder of the group, the sorority was started "because there was a feeling that one sorority on campus was not enough." In February, 1981, a chapter of Delta Delta Delta was formed at Trinity. In addition to hosting social events, the sorority will engage in community activities, begining in the fall, Johnson said. The primary purposes of the organization are to facilitate friendships among members and to provide mutual support. In late April, the Studept Government Association approved a constitution for a new fraternity, Alpha Beta Gamma. The fraternity hopes to affiliate with Delta Phi, which had a chapter at Trinity from 1917-1972.

BOARD APPROVES $22.3 MILLION BUDGET At the March meeting, the board of trustees approved a $22.3 million balanced budget for fiscal 1982-83, including an increase in student fees of $1, 150. The budget includes an increase in unrestricted funds for financial aid of 37 percent. The adopted budget is in balance for the thirteenth consecutive year. Tuition will rise from $6,300 to $7,100, room rent will go up from $1,330 to $1,550, and board will be set

at $1,300, from $1220. The general fee will increase by $50, to $250. The total bill will be $10,200, a 12.7 percent increase over this year's charges. Robert A. Pedemonti, Trinity's treasurer and director of finance, noted that the adopted budget reflects th e impact of two particular forces: namely, "severe cutbacks in federal student financial aid and continuing inflation." He stated that Trinity's fees "are by no means excessive when compared with those announced by our sister institutions." The budget includes $1,025,000 in unrestricted funds for student financial aid, up from $750,000 this year. Excluding federal grants, Trinity will offer $1,994,300 in student aid in fiscal 1982-83. The College's contribution to financial aid from operating funds has risen 167 percent over the past three years. The instruction budget will rise 12 percent including an 11.5 percent increase in faculty salaries. The faculty research provision will rise 12 percent, and the budget for the library by 13.7 percent.

BOARD VOTES ORGANIZATIONAL. CHANGES The trustees have voted changes in the organization of the board which affect the length of members' terms, as well as the number and scope of various committees. Previously, the T rinity board encompassed three categories of membersh ip: charter trustees, elected by the board to serve until retirement; term trustees, elected by the board for single, eightyear terms; and alumni trustees, popularly elected by the alumni for six-year terms. Under the new system, the first two categories of members are to be know as charter trustees. They will serve five-year terms, and no more than two terms in succession. Thus, lifetime membership on the board has effectively been eliminated, though an individual could be returned to the board after a hiatus of one year. There is no change in the method of election or length of term for alumni trustees. The chairman of the board, who is elected annually, will serve in the position for no more than five consecutive years.

RETIRING BOARD CHAIRMAN, George W. B. Starkey '39 and his wife were feted at a campus dinner this spring honoring Dr. Starkey's decade of service at the helm of the Board of Trustees. Though stepping down from the chairmanship, Dr. Starkey will continue to serve the College as a member of the Board.

Several new committees of the board have been established, and others eliminated. The new Committee on the Board will be responsible for recommending new members and overseeing the procedures and structures of the governing body. A new Committee on Institutional Development will oversee the College's fund raising as well as its other external relations. Three committees have been eliminated: library, honorary degrees and law. Their functions will be absorbed by the standing committees. According to William R. Peelle '44, secretary of the board, the change in trustee categories an d the length of the terms will both simplify the board's structure and provide it with more flexibility by ensuring a healthy turn-over in membership. "As the demands the College makes on its trustees become greater, the job entails a larger commitment of time," Peelle explained. "Thus, renewable, five-year terms are more realistic than lifetime membership. In addition, we now have a large, diverse and very able body of alumni whom we

can tap for membership on the board. The new system will allow us to utilize more effectively our talented group of alumni and friends." In reworking the committee structure, Peelle explained, various areas of oversight were regrouped, and most committees were given more explicit charges. In the process, th e number of committees was reduced, and consequently most trustees will serve on two committees, rather than three or four, as they have in the past.

MONTGOMERY HEADS BOARD OF TRUSTEES Edward A. Montgomery, Jr., '56 of Sewickley, Pennsylvania, president and chief executive officer of the Mellon National Mortgage Corporation and senior vice president of the Mellon Bank, N.A., has been elected chairman of the board of trustees. The selection was made at the March meeting of the board. Montgomery succeeds Dr. George W.B. Starkey '39 of Brookline,


Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Massachusetts, who has been chairman of the trustees since 1972. Montgomery has been a trustee since 1978, when he was elected by his fellow alumni to a six-year term on the board. In announcing the appointment, Starkey said, "I am delighted Ned Montgomery will be the next chairman of the board of trustees. His financial expertise and long years of service to the College makes him eminently suited for this challenge."

from this fund will be used for an annual award to an entering freshman who demonstrates outstanding leadership and character. Kurth joined the Trinity faculty in 1952, was named professor of physical education in 1961, and assumed his present duties in 1966. Under his leadership the athletic program has flourished, meeting the challenges of pronounced social changes, substantially increased enrollments and the introduction of a broad range of women's sports. Beyond the campus Kurth has held a variety of leadership roles including presidencies of the Eastern College Athletic Conference, the New England Intercollegiate Athletic Association, and the New England Small College Athletic Conference. Individuals wishing to contribute to the Kurth Scholarship Fund should make checks payable toT rinity College and send them to Robert A. Pedemonti, treasurer, Trinity College, Hartford, CT06106.

KRIEBLE PROFESSORSHIP ESTABLISHED A professorship in chemistry, named in honor of the late Vernon K, Krieble, has been established at the College by Krieble's widow and their son. Dr. Henry A. DePhillips, Jr., a member of the Trinity faculty since 1963 and current chairman of the chemistry department, has been named the first Vernon K. Krieble professor of chemistry. Vernon Krieble was Scovill Professor of Chemistry at the College from 1920-1955. Several years before his retirement, he invented the sealant, LOCTITE, in his laboratory at Trinity. After retiring in 1955, he and his son, Robert, formed the American Sealants Company, which became the Loctite Corporation in 1963. The corporation, which is headquartered in Newington, Connecticut, has grown rapidly to become a major factor in the international market for high technology sealants and adhesives. In announcing the new professorship and the incumbent, President English said, "For thirty-five years, Vern on Krieble worked to build an outstanding chemistry department at Trinity.

Henry A. DePhillips, Jr.

Gerald A. Gunderson

Under his leadership, the curriculum was strengthened and the department doubled in size. In the 1930's, when a new chemistry facility was needed to house the burgeoning program, V ernon Krieble attended to every detail of the planning, including the fundraising. Thus, it is most appropriate that a professorship in chemistry be established in his name. "We are deeply grateful to the Krieble family for this magnificent gift. I know they are pleased that we have selected Henry DePhillips, an outstanding teacher arid researcher, as the first Krieble professor." Mrs. Vern on K. Krieble, the former Laura Cassel, was born in 1889 and graduated, magna cum laude, from the Perkiomen School. She married V ernon Krieble in 1912. They started their married life in Montreal, where Dr. Krieble was on the faculty of McGill University. The Kriebles moved to Hartford in 1920, when Dr. Krieble accepted the post at Trinity. They lived on campus, at 71 Vern on Street, for thirteen years. Mrs. Krieble was the first treasurer of the American Sealants Company. Commenting on the new professorship, Mrs. Krieble said, "I am pleased that it is now possible to announce the establishment of the Vern on K. Krieble chair in chemistry to honor his memory and deep devotion to Trinity College in general, and the chemistry department in particular."

Dr. Robert H . Krieble joined Loctite in 1956 to organize the commercial launch of the venture, after a thirteenyear career at the General Electric Company. He became president of the Loctite Corporation in 1964, chairman of the board in 1978, and chairman and chief executive officer in 1980. The inventor of some dozen patents in the fields of silicones, anaerobic adhesives and petrochemicals, Krieble, who holds a doctorate in chemistry, has been the recipient of the Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Chemical Industry Association, the Honor Award from the Commercial Development Association, and the American Eagle Award in Public Affairs. Henry DePhillips is a gradaute of Fordham University and earned his doctorate at Northwestern. His major field of teaching is physical chemistry and his principal area of research is physical biochemistry. The author of numerous articles on the oxygenbinding properties of respiratory proteins, he has been awarded research grants by the Research Corporation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Connecticut Research Commission. DePhillips was visiting professor at Northwestern University in 1969-1970, visiting senior chemist at the Loctite Corporation in 1977, and has been an investigator at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, Massa路 chusetts.


Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk SHELBY CULLOM DAVIS PROFESSOR APPOINTED Dr. Gerald Gunderson, a member of the faculty since 1978, has been named Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of American Business and~Economic Enterprise at Trinity. Gunderson will be the first incumbent in the chair, which was endowed by Shelby Cullom Davis, investment banker, author, and former U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Gunderson will direct a new program in American business and economic enterprise made possible by the Davis endowment. Facets of the program will include: campus visits and residencies by business leaders, economists and other scholars, who will conduct seminars and meet informally with students; courses to be taught by guest faculty from other academic institutions; periodic public lectures by nationallyknown economists and scholars; the creation of new courses in such areas as entrepreneurial and business history; and the expansion of Trinity's business internship program. Trinity's internship program currently places some 225 students per year in area businesses, social service agencies, government offices, and cultural organizations. The students work, usually without compensation, under the direction of a Trinity faculty member and a member of the host institution, and are eligible to earn academic credit. Gunderson earned his bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in economics from the University of Washington. Before joining the Trinity faculty as professor of economics, he taught at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst from 1967-1974; Mount Holyoke College in 1975, and North Carolina State University from 1975-1978. A specialist in American economic history, he is the author of numerous articles and reviews, and a book, A New Economic History of America, published by McGraw-Hill in 1976. He is a member of the American Economic Association, the Economic History Association, and the Association for Private Enterprise Education. Shelby Cullom Davis has had distinguished careers in government and finance and is widely recognized as a

philanthropist to education. A graduate of Princeton University, he earned a master's degree from Columbia University and a doctorate from the University of Geneva. He was awarded an honorary degree from Trinity in 1973. Davis was economic adviser to Thomas E. Dewey of New York cluing the early days of Dewey's career and when he ran for the presidency in 1944. He is the author of four books on international and economic affairs. From 194 7-1969, Davis was ,managing partner of Shelby Cullom Davis & Co., the oldest and largest specialist in insurance securities in the United States. Currently, he is chairman of the company, as well as serving as director of the Value Line Funds and other companies. He has endowed professorial chairs at the Princeton Center of Historical Studies and Wellesley College, as well as the Cullom-Davis Library at Bradley University and the Museum at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York.

HOPES RUN HIGH FOR THE CLASS OF '86 Confronted by statistics of a declining pool of 18-year-olds, the admissions office this year has experienced the un-

expected: a near-record number of applications, and "exceptional quality" in those applicants, according to Donald N. Dietrich, director of admissions. Applications for the Class of 1986 numbered 3,223, an increase of200 over last year and the second largest applicant pool in the College's history. And, because of the exceptionally strong quality of the candidates, a large number had to be placed on the waiting list. The increase in applications for the Class of '86 is not uniform at all institutions, Dietrich said, although almost all of the colleges with which Trinity traditionally competes have experienced an increase. The explanation seems to be that students are making many more multiple applications to colleges than in the pa,st. Trinity is seeking to enroll485 students in the Class of '86, to fill the places of an exceptionally large senior class graduating this year. Admission to the Class of '86 has been offered to 13 72 students, including 97 early decision candidates - more than twice as many as last year in the latter category. Dietrich views 125 early decision acceptances as an ideal number, and feels that reaching this goal is just a matter of time. In terms of characteristics, this year's candidates for admission closely resem-

MINORITY WEEKEND, sponsored by Admissions, gave prospective candidates a chance to visit classes, stay in dorms, meet with faculty and students. Fifty minority students will enroll in the fall.

The bulk of applications came from residents of the New England and mid-Atlantic regions- approximately 75 percent from those states, according to Dietrich. An increase in applications from the West Coast is noted this year, as it was in 1981, and, at approximately 3 percent is considered an encouraging sign. Also offering a promising note are the 179 applications by minority candidates, representing a 40 percent increase over last year. Other statistical data on the Class of '86 is currently being compiled; a profile of the College's entering freshmen will appear in a future issue of the magazine.

SUMMERSTAGE OFFERS LIVELY PROGRAM

12

Alumni and friends of the College in the Greater Hartford Area will again enjoy the opportunity to take in a varied program of theatrical offerings as Summerstage opens its sixth season in the Austin Arts Center in June. The season premieres with "Tintypes," a professional touring company presenting a musical salute to America at the turn of the century. The cast is headed by Patrice Munsel, who has sung at the Metropolitan Opera and appeared on the musical comedy stage in "Kiss Me, Kate," and "South Pacific." "Tintypes" will appear from June 15-19; tickets are $8 and $ 10. Three plays make up the Summerstage program, which begins on June 22nd with "She Stoops to Conquer," Goldsmith's 18th century comedy, directed by Roger Shoemaker, directorin-residence of theatre arts at Trinity. This production runs through July 3rd. The second show is "Otherwise Engaged," an award-winning London and Broadway play by Simon Gray, which will run from July 13-24, and is directed by Lawrence Kornfeld. The third offering is "The Gin Game" by D. L. Coburn, a contemporary tragicomedy about two senior citizens in a retirement home. Directed by Shoemaker, the play will run from July 27-August 7. Subscription prices for all three plays are $25.50 for Wednesday through Saturday evening performances, and $20.40 for Sunday and Tuesday even-

ings, Wednesday and Sunday matinees and the Saturday, 5 p.m. show. Students and senior citizens may purchase series tickets for $16 for the $20.40 series; "rush" tickets may also be purchased for $6.50 instead of $8 when seats are available just before showtime. Ticket information is available from the Austin Arts Box Office: (203) 527-8062. Two programs for children will also be offered this summer. The Summerstage Children's Theater performances include: "The Dragon's Wagon," June 22-24; "Cleo's Cafe," July 6-8; "Step on a Crack," July 20-22; and "Tarradiddle Tales," August 3-5. Single tickets are $3.50 and shows will be given on Tuesday at 6 p.m., Wednesday at 1 and 6 p.m. and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Subscription price for all four plays路is $12. New this year is Theaterscene, a day camp for children ages 9-14 who are interested in the theatre. The camp will run Monday-Friday from 9-4 between July 5 and August 6. Participants will experience various aspects of theatre including mime, puppetry, scenery, light-ing and costumes. More information on Theaterscene is available by calling (203) 527-1471. Summerstage has received grants this year from the Greater Hartford Arts Council and the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, along with a $35,000 challenge grant from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving for which gifts are still being sought. Donors should make checks payable to Summerstage and mail them to the Aust,i n Arts Center, Trinity College, Hartford, CT, 06106.

ADMISSIONS SEEKS ALUMNI CHILDREN Three special programs are being offered for Trinity alumni sons and daughters who are entering their senior years in high school in the fall. The objective of these sessions is to familiarize participants with the College admissions process and to enhance their chances of entering the college of their choice, whether or not they plan to attend Trinity. First, for alumni children who seek to enter Trinity, Director of Admissions Donald N. Dietrich will be available for individual interviews during June, July and early September. Candidates

should phone Dietrich for an appointment as soon as possible at (203) 527-3151, Ext. 248. At the time of the interview, applicants should bring copies of their high school transcripts through their junior year, and the results of their first round of College Board testing. ' Second, those not interested specifically in Trinity can schedule interviews with Dietrich for general counseling about selecting a college. These encounters provide a chance for students to engage in practice interviews and to evaluate their options for postsecondary education. Again, candidates should bring copies of their transcripts and Board scores to these sessions. Third, Trinity will agairi hold a threeday weekend for alumni sons and daughters on September 23, 24, and 25. Students taking part will have opportunities to talk with admissions officers, attend classes, meet with faculty and sample dormitory and student life. A mailing describing this program will be sent to all alumni in July. Persons wishing more information should contact Gerald J. Hansen, Jr., director of alumni and college relations, who is coordinator for the event.

SGAASKSFOR EXPAND ED ROLE The Student Government Association (SGA) has passed a resolution this spring expressing its dissatisfaction with communications between the student body and the administration and the board of trustees. Seeking a stronger voice in College planning and policy making, the SGA action spelled out five areas of concern: 1. Board Membership. Asking for representation on the board of trustees, the SGA proposed an initial step of including students on trustee committees involving student life, education al policy, buildings and grounds and admissions. The issue of fu ll membership for students was left open to discussion. 2 Budget Review. Students want more participation in the budget process, which was characterized as "woefully inadequate." Proposed reforms include publication of preliminary budgets, open meetings during the process and discussions on the utility of specific line items.


Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk 3. Planning. A College Planning Committee was recommended to develop a comprehensive strategy for Trinity over the next decade. 4. Mather Hall. Students seek a more active role in the renovation plans for the student center, and more frequent reports of administrative decisions. 5. Disciplinary Review. Consideration should be given to the establishment of a student Judiciary Board with undergraduate participation in these discussions. Passage of the resolution culminates a year-long effort by the SGA to expand undergraduate roles in the life of the College. In recent months student leadership has been outspoken on tuition and financial aid policies, minority recruitment, the food service and the college calendar. In addition, SGA has, in the past year, instituted several new undertakings including a community outreach program, a faculty luncheon series, a new course evaluation process and an expanded Awareness Week.

NEW ALUMNI DIRECTORY SLATED In response to numerous requests, Trinity has arranged for the preparation of its first alumni directory since 1974. The publication will be a valuable reference for Trinity graduates and will also be useful in planning future alumni activities and programs. The Bernard C. Harris Publishing Company, Inc. of White Plains, N.Y., has again been selected as the official publisher. The extensive project will be conducted at virtually no cost to the College. Harris will compile, publish and market the directory, financing the operation solely through the sale of individual directories to alumni. The updated directory will be compiled from brief questionnaires mailed to alumnni with known addresses, and followed up by telephone for approval of the directory information. The mailing is scheduled to take place beginning about November. At the time of the telephone verification, alumni will be invited to purchase a copy of the directory. This will be the only opportunity to order the book. Only enough directories to fill these pre-publication orders will be printed

and circulation will be restricted to alumni. Publication is tentatively scheduled for late summer, 1983. The directory will contain an alphabetical listing of all alumni, with each entry to include name, class, degree, home address and telephone, and business or professional information, including title, firm name, address and telephone. Two complete indexes of all alumni, one arranged geographically by towns within states, and the other by class year will follow the alphabetical section, providing easy cross references. Gerald J. Hansen, Jr., director of alumni and college relations, expressed the hope that all alumni will respond to the directory questionnaire. "The College will not benefit financially from this project," he noted, "but the mutual rewards for the College and its graduates in following the lives of our alumni make this publication an extremely worthy endeavor."

QUIET LIVING GETSAVOTE Special interest or program dorms at the College have traditionally been linked to language study - the French and Spanish dorms, for example. But, when the latest specialized dorm opens this fall, less language will be the desired standard for the 39 residents. In response to undergraduate requests, Trinity will initiate its first quiet dorm in the Fall. It will be located in Smith, which is considered very desirable by students because of its threeand four-person suites with single bedrooms. According to Kristina Dow, director of residential services, a quiet dorm was talked about last year, but there had not been enough interested students to fill one at that time. "Every year there's more concern with noise," Dow said, adding that she was very pleased with the new residential option. She credited sophomore Michael Ziskind with making the idea a reality. "I give him very high praise for his initiative," Dow said. "He was very eager to get it going, talked the idea up with students, and did a lot of publicity. His assistance and enthusiasm put us over the top." Ziskind had a very personal interest in the establishment of a quiet dorm. "I can't say anything nice about my freshman dorm," he says flatly, adding that

his room in Jones has "very thin walls." "At present there is idiosyncratic enforcement of rules and regulations in the dorms, particularly on week nights," Ziskind says, "and, students should be able to sleep or study in their room when they so desire." After midnight the usual places for study, like the library or classrooms, are closed, he notes. While admitting that all colleges have a problem with noise, because of the physical similarities of dorms- thin walls, long corridors- Ziskind feels that the satisfactory housing of students on campus is central toT rinity's goal of quality liberal arts education. He sees the innovation of a quiet dorm not as a solution, but as a stopgap measure. "It's a symptom of a larger problem: the lack of mutual respect of students on campus. Students tend to be self-centered," he says. Dr. George Higgins, professor of psychology and college counselor, agrees that "a mutual respect process" is what will be sought for the new dorm. Higgins was approached by Ziskind for help, since all program dorms need an academic sponsor. On reflection, Higgins says that he has always been critical of the students' practice of putting stereo speakers into the windows, with the resulting blasts of music around campus. There probably shouldn't even be a sponsor for a quiet dorm, Higgins says, adding "dormitories are for studying." The highest priorities will be intellectual and academic, says Higgins, who will meet with the soon-to-be residents to learn what their hopes are for the dorm and to establish some guidelines for its operation. He expects that what they will draw up is "a set of understandings, not great Draconian rules." The quiet dorm will have the same opportunity as all the others for group activity, and Higgins notes that there are resources for different kinds of activities than parties. Their events may be more intellectually oriented, he says, adding that it depends largely on how much the residents want to operate as a group. "We can be somewhat creative about it," he says adding that he would bring along his "castle-building kit" to meetings with the residents. "The students may not want to build any castles, but we'll see."

Building for All Time by Peter Grant '72

A

14

ll buildings start as ideas, and the ideas behind the Trinity College Chapel are lofty ones. Before even an initial design was drafted, the donor's intention was to construct a building without equal for beauty of design; a building "of such a character that when you see it from any standpoint you will love it without reserve." Throughout the arduous work of constructing the Chapel, the men who were responsible for the project never lost sight of the architect's hope that the Chapel would be "more beautiful than any college chapel." Quite simply, the story of how they achieved this is a fascinating tale. Three men were chiefly responsible for shaping and building the Chapel. Philip H. Frohman was the principal architect; William G. Mather was the donor; and Remsen B. Ogilby was the president and chaplain of the College. Each man played a very different role in the construction of the building, but they shared a common vision of what they wanted to achieve. William G. Mather was a scion of the New England family that had produced Increase and Cotton Mather some generations earlier. He was also as close to being an ideal donor as is possible. He was a man with taste and education as well as possessing great wealth. He founded the Church Club of Cleveland, and remained an active member for over sixty years. His interest in bibliography and family history caused him to put. together the most significant collection ever assembled of material written by his Mather forebears. He was also a successful businessman, and made his fortune as the head of the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company. The stone walls of the Chapel are built around a core of brick, some 1.8 million bricks in all. Mather's presence in the building is as essential and as invisible as these bricks. He donated the entire fabric of the Chapel, but the building is named for its college, not for its donor. Mather participated actively in the search for an architect, and once the firm was selected, he did not attempt to inflict his own designs on them. Instead, he offered sound guidance and a clear sense of what he wanted to see accomplished. Every craftsman, designer and major donation was approved by him. When his advice was offered, it was invariably selected because it was sound, not because it was backed by a checkbook. Without such quality in the man who gave the building, there could be no quality in the building itself. As Mather provided the building with its corpus, Remsen B. Ogilby provided its animus. The Rev. Dr. Ogilby was the president and chaplain ofTrinity from 1920 until his death in 1943, a length of presidential service unequalled in the history of the College. He approached the construction of the Chapel with an

astonishing zeal and dedication to detail. Ogilby was the crucible in whom the creative genius of the architects and designers fused with the craftsmanship of the carpenters, masons and workers. The workmen approached the job of building the Chapel with a dedication and love that was often described as "medieval" in spirit. A great deal of this was due to the urging and guidance of Ogilby, but the fact that this was a Frohman-designed building should not be overlooked as a contributing factor. A dedication to achieving nothing less than perfection was the expected standard for realizing his designs. Philip H. Frohman was the senior partner of the firm Frohman, Robb and Little. His associates were Donald Robb, who joined the firm with a significant reputation for his draftsmanship and ability to create gothic interiors, and Harry B. Little, one of the architects of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York. The firm was formed in Boston and later opened an office in Washington, after securing the contract for the National Cathedral. While all three of the associates discussed and contributed to all of the finished work, no one who had dealings with the firm made any mistake about the personality of the senior partner, who stood at the center of things. . Frohman, Robb and Little were selected as the Chapel architects only after Ogilby and Mather had considered the leading architects of the day who worked in the gothic style. The idea of building a gothic structure was Mather's, and was the only option considered from the very moment that Mather announced his intention of donating the building. Many of the American architects who worked in the gothic style had an academic approach to their work. While impressive, their buildings were frequently dry and lacked the "living" quality that Ogilby and Mather sought to create. Frohman and his associates were selected because their philosophy of church architecture agreed fully with the ideal of the building that Ogilby and Mather wanted. In a letter to Ogilby (3/8/29), Frohman explained the approach that he brought to all of his work. . .. it is because of a conscientious adherence to our belief that if an architect is to create a living work of Christian art, it is absolutely essential that he put into every portion of the design and execution of his work a sufficient measure of his own faith and life ... In short, to achieve great architecture when it comes to the design and building of a church, an architect must have those qualifications which will enable him to be a true "master of the fabric" in the medieval sense of the word.

The day after the above was written, Ogilby wrote to Mather indicating that he was clear in his mind that they would make no mistake in selecting Frohman, Robb and Little as architects. The "living" character of the building was one of their most difficult goals, and the achievement of it is one of the building's greatest accomplishments. It was evident from the start that the architect of the National Cathedral did not approach the Trinity Chapel as a lesser commission. Unlike most artists or even geniuses, the work of Philip Frohman does not divide into categories of major and minor. Everything is of the same quality, and was created with a dedication to strive for perfection. As he had done with the National Cathedral, Frohman built into the building a chronologically arranged history of the development of English church architecture. The Crypt Chapel is Norman and gives a sense of the fundamental strength and solidity of eleventh century architecture. In general, the building is gothic after the manner of the English gothic chapels, moving from the early to late thirteenth century from the nave to the choir. The upper part of the tower and the east end of the building suggest the later, perpendicular gothic.

None of this was done for fanciful reasons. The Norman architecture is better adapted to express the structural functions of a substructure than any of the later and more highly developed periods of gothic architecture. However, it was only in the fifteenth century that the crowning features of the gothic building saw their highest development. All of these elements come together in the_ Chapel with a vigor and originality that is not accidental. Frohman never attempted to construct a building from bits of existing structures, but always sought to create something new. He did not work with gothic architecture to recreate an historical period, but rather worked outside of time in a style that was, to him, both modern and creative. To Frohman, gothic architecture expresses a striving, not an attainment. He likened Greek architecture to a . man who has reached a perfection of the physical and material sort, while gothic architecture symbolizes a spiritual perfection that is beyond us. Because gothic attempts to go further than seems possible, we love it the more. The R. G. Bent Company of Hartford was selected to translate Frohman's designs into stone. Ogilby proposed the firm because of the fine work they had done for the Colleg~ in completing the Trowbridge Pool.

EXCAVATION and foundations were well underway in May 1930 (left). In September 1930, piers of the Crypt Chapel begail to take shape.

CORNERSTONE CEREMONY, conducted by the Rev. W. Blair Roberts took place in June 1930. By November 1930, piles of Indiana limestone were on the site in front of Williams Memorial.

17

Ground was broken for the Chapel in November, 1929, and construction of the lower portions of the building began before detailed drawings had been made for the upper portions. The advantage of this arrangement was the faster start-up and lessened cost. The architects prepared very complete and demanding specifications for the contractor, and Bent was more than adequately equipped to supply what Frohman wanted. When construction began, one major decision about the building was yet to be made; the choice of a building stone for the exterior and interior walls. For very great sentimental reasons, many of the College trustees and others wanted to see a brownstone chapel that would match the existing buildings of the Long Walk. Unfortunately, brownstone was not suitable for the delicate tracery of the windows, and by 1930 the famous Portland, Connecticut quarries were no longer equipped to prepare stone according to the intricate requirements of the building. When the Rev. W. Blair Roberts accepted the invitation to lay the cornerstone of the Chapel, he was unaware of the fact that the particular type of stone he would be responsible for laying had not yet been determined. On April4, 1930 the decision was made, and Bent was authorized to purchase lndiana limestone in a shade known as "Rustic Buff." The choice of both stone and supplier (Bloomington Limestone Company) proved to be wise. The beauty and quality of the stone and the ability of the quarry to deliver as specified received the approbation of the demanding Frohman.

Ogilby, writing to Mather, said that he "marvelled daily at the beauty of the stone." By November, 1930, work had progressed to the point that the Crypt Chapel was made available for occasional services. Ogilby told Mather, "I have a feeling that it will be a distinct help to the spirit of the workmen if they see one little bit of finished beauty before their eyes." Ogilby's instincts proved correct. As had been his hope, he began to see that he had achieved his goal of working with men who loved their work and who loved the beauty of the work their hands created. As the building progressed, it became apparent that Ogilby's dream was realized beyond any expectations. The "occasional" services in the Crypt Chapel became a weekly event for the workmen. When the Chapel was completed they continued to meet every year to inspect their work, join in worship, and enjoy their fellows' company. Unfortunately, the Great Depression began to bite hard toward the end of construction. Mather's holdings were largely in steel, and it became increasingly difficult for him to arrange for the regular cash payments to meet building costs. As Mather's securities continued to depreciate, in-

creasingly stringent measures were undertaken. In November, 1931, Mather asked the executive committee of the Trustees to arrange a loan of $100,000 to support the Chapel construction. Even with this support it became necessary to arrange that all construction would be postponed, other than what was necessary to conserve what had already been built. By the end of March, 1932, Mather was completely out of cash and could not even manage the absolute minimum needed to secure the unfinished building from the weather.

The Chapel was completed, however, and it was the workmen who came forward to see that it was. They donated a substantial portion of the labor that it took to complete the structure. In describing this incident to Frohman, Ogilby wrote, "Their love for the Chapel is one of the finest sides of human nature I have ever met."

Much of the stained glass and all of the celebrated pew and kneeler ends were yet to come, and by intention the Chapel is a place that will never be wholly completed. Before the 1930's were over, Mather's financial health had recovered, and the workmen and College were paid in full. By that time Mather was in his

eighties, and, because he lived in Cleveland, he was rarely able to attend the Chapel Builders Alumni Association meetings. His presence was always felt, and even when he was not there, the workmen toasted him as warmly as if he were. •

lorious music, historic exhibits and lectures, and uplifting religious services marked the celebration of the Chapel Jubilee. Beginning with the Festal Service in February, the rich and varied program of events played to full houses throughout the spring. Alumni, relatives of the chapel builders, and members of the Hartford and campus communities turned out in large numbers to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of one of Hartford's most notable landmarks. The observance will culminate at a chapel service on June 18, marking the actual fiftieth anniversary of the building's consecration. Chairmen for the Jubilee are the Rt. Rev. Lyman C. Ogilby, Bishop of Pennsylvania, and the Rt. Rev. Arthur C. Walmsley '48, Bishop of Connecticut.

CONCERT by Arioso with John Rose, chapel organist (foreground), was a musical highlight of the Jubilee. WEDDING REUNION service for those married in the Chapel, attracted over 50 couples to renew their vows. CLARENCE WATTERS, honorary col路 lege organist, marked his 80th birthday with a concert by four former students. Shown at the post-concert party are: Paul Lindsley Thomas, St. Michaels and All Angels, Dallas Texas; Charles Dodsley Walker, Church of the Heavenly Rest, New York City; Mr. and Mrs. Watters; Philip Isaacson, Christ Church Cathedral, Hartford; Charles Callahan, Church of the Epiphany, Washington, D.C.

Chapel and College The encounter between religion and education retains its spirit. by Arthur E. Walmsley '48

M

y first political act took place in 1936 when I wore a large sunflower with the words "Alf Landon" on it. That bold self-confession had absolutely no electoral effect. Mr. Roosevelt won by a landslide. Besides I was only eight years old. Four years earlier, in 1932, my taste for the world beyond the family had been whetted when the same jaunty man who won the election passed through our town in an open touring car to his alma mater, The Groton School. Groton, you will recall, was built as an institution to equip the American establishment for their leadership responsibilities. It seems ancient history now. 1932, the year of Roosevelt, marked the depth of The Depression. Looked at today -when an Administration in power seems committed to repeal the directions which he set in motion -looked at now after World War II, after the post-war boom, after Korea, Vietnam, the cultural upheavals of the sixties and seventies- 1932 seems a long time ago, not just in time, but in national consciousness. The event we commemorate this afternoon happened that same year. This Chapel came into being as a result of the shared vision of three men: Ogilby, the president and dreamer; Mather, the alumnus and philanthropist; and Frohman, the architect and exponent of a gothic revival. It is possible, I suppose, to count their achievement as some kind of architectural fossil, the last gasp of a 19th century vision which in its own way capped the plan of William Burges, who designed a new campus in the gothic style when Trinity moved in 1878 to its present site from its old location where the State Capitol now stands. Burges' model never progressed much beyond the buildings bordering the Long Walk from Jarvis to Seabury. What about this building? Undergraduates, at least in my generation, would resent the discipline of compulsory Chapel, and that custom disappeared in the late 1950s. Latter day disciples of Darwin, Marx, or Freud no doubt regard this place as an anachronism at best. Some of its neighbors resent the tintinabulation of its bells, bells, bells. No doubt one can reach the exalted state "Cum hoc libro admitote ad primum gradum" without acknowledging that it even exists. But here it is.

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had vanished, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, new Jerusalem, coming

down out of heaven from God .... I heard a loud voice proclaiming from the throne, 'Now at last God has His dwelling among mankind. He will dwell among them and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be an end to death, and to mourning and crying and pain; for the old order has passed away.''' In 1823, a hundred years before the Chapel was built, a group of Episcopal churchmen in Connecticut founded Washington College. They were moved by a vision of liberal arts education which they S(;lW to be the repository of classical learning and the western cultural and religious tradition. This place was to be unlike other schools - and in particular Yale College which required adherence to a creedal statement and particular denominational tradition. The fact that a group of Episcopalians would found an independent college without any legal and institutional ties to the institutional church makes a statement both about religion and the intellectual life, and the relationship between them. Religion, religious commitment, and its institutional forms provide a basis, one might say a ground or support for the intellectual and educational enterprise, but religion does not expect a circumference for those operations of the human spirit. Trinity is not, and never was, a sectarian institution. Its model was on the order of the British universities, in which the encounter of religion and learning is dialogical, not confessional, rooted in a uniquely Anglican love for reason and reasoned faith. As William Lawrence said in his charge to President Ogilby in a charge at the Consecration of the Chapel, "The architecture of this Chapel, the office of consecration, its forms of worship, express louder than words the traditions which form the background of this nation. In the changing moods of American thought and life, the Chapel will stand for such courage, elasticity and idealism as will bind it closer to the sons (and daughters) of America who worship here. In the changing habits of family life and the loosening of religious teaching in the homes, those coming here have a right to ask that Christian faith and worship be.so expressed as to meet their needs, and so adapted to the thoughts, philosophies and ethics that they are working out that Christ, His life and ideals will be wrought into the warp and woof of their character." There is vision and an almost naive idealism in that statement. It is shot through with assumptions about the American ex-

23


perience, its law and traditions and purposes which have been drastically challenged in the half-century which has intervened. It makes assumptions about the enterprise of liberal arts education and the boundaries between a religious life and the intellectual world. No one better personified the integration of those values than Remson Brinkerhoff Ogilby. As he scurried over the scaffolding day after day during the building, Ogilby challenged the stonemasons and others with an almost fierce energy and a determination that this building would be a synthesis of architecture, and faith, tradition, manual labor and intellectual striving. In his remarks at the dedication ceremony in June, 1932, Ogilby held up such a unity of purpose: "The dream of the donor, the vision of the architect, the exactitude of the engineer, the craftsmanship of mason and carpenter, the sweat of the laborer, the lavish of beauty of carven wood and stone have all been conceived and carried out in a spirit of absolute consecration. Sympathetic visitors during the period of construction have sometimes suggested with pleased surprise that we seem to have regained something of the spirit of the Middle Ages, the craftsmanship of which endures to this day. If this be so it is not because of any architectural limitation, but simply because of a gradually formed conviction that this is the way to

24

build a House of God. A workman may easily become a craftsman when he loves his task. This Chapel also embodies convictions of long standing. It stresses the fact that there are values in our heritage from the past which will long endure." It is hard for one generation to reconstruct, much less comprehend the unity of vision which called forth this building. The synthesis of values which epitomized western European culture before its collapse in the years between the First and Second World Wars may seem strangely out of place on the modern campus. But it remains, unabashedly, the task both of the Church and the academy to provide that linkage. In his report to the university last year, President Giamatti of Yale wrote, "Our institutions that mediate between the past and the future- courts, libraries, museums, hospitals, churches, universities, the various levels of government - are constantly undergoing changes in shape, and therefore shapeliness or the question of proportion is _always before us ... The more I think of it, the more the characteristic feature (of the university) that I treasure most, and most believe we must advance is the driving ideal of collaboration." The mere existence of this Chapel challenges the Trinity campus to a dialogue. What is the appropriate


encounter between one religious tradition among many and the intellectual quest which is the proper undertaking of a liberal arts institution? A Chapel roote-d in a particular Christian tradition, in this case Anglican, stands on the boundary among varied religious experiences, not the least of which today is the encounter between the religions of the Near East- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - and those of the Far East. No one need be embarrassed to be a Christian in this place, or to apologize for the western cultural and intellectual heritage which gave birth to this college and to the liberal democratic idealism which has empowered the society in its relations to the rest of the world. What is called for is an appropriate humility. A college chapel lives on the boundary of present time inasmuch as it must minister to people whose productive lives will be lived out in another century and millenium. Unlike the time of President Ogilby and his gothic vision, this building is not at the center of the campus enterprise. But neither must it be seen as only on the boundary. Its mode is in dialogue. It is a mediating structure. But the terms of the dialogue have changed in the fifty years since its building, and will continue to. In architecture, we are the children not only of a gothic revival but of the Bauhaus. In art, of abstract expressionism. In philosophy, of existentialism, neo-Marxism,

and their assorted children. In economics, of postKeynesian revisionism. In international affairs, global consciousness. In religious awareness, a renaissance of all traditions, East and West. What has excited those of us who have been privileged to plan the Jubilee celebration of this building launched in this Service is the richness of vision and creative energy that occasioned the building of the Chapel in a bleak time in American life. It should come as no surprise that the second lesson at the Service of Consecration was the same passage from the Book of Revelation read just a moment ago. The apocalypse of John was written to a ,church undergoing persecution at the beginning of the Second Century A.D. For its author, the compelling vision of a new society was enough to sustain a group of people in the worst of times. That is a task worthy of a college in the tradition ofTrinity, and it i¡s clearly the place of this building in its midst. •

ark Twain's description of New England weather reminds us nicely of the unpredictability, the diversity of nature. That diversity is critical, not only to our quality of life, but also to our American way of life. The task of protecting our natural inheritance falls largely to the Department of the Interior currently under the direction of its controversial Secretary, James Watt. Since the programs of this department affect a considerable segment of our society, it is important to examine in some detail the broad range of Interior's influence and responsibility. My own familiarity with the Department comes from six years as Assistant Secretary of the Interior under Presidents Nixon and Ford, hardly the background for an "environmental extremist." Yet, Secretary Watt has dismissed his critics, of which I am one, as environmentalist "hired guns." He proclaims loudly and repeatedly that he is a true environmentalist, and that anyone who disagrees with his policies is an extremist. This scares me; it brings to mind Emerson's statement, "The louder he talked of his honor the faster we counted our spoons." There is a well known psychological pattern called projection; the faults we attribute to others are most likely to be the ones we are most concerned about in ourselves. I have no doubt that deep down Jim Watt knows who the extremist is. Let me begin my analysis of the Department of the Interior by providing some budgetary perspective. Interior's proposed budget for 1982 is $3.6 billion. Billions always sound like a lot of money, but the Interior funding is only 1.5 percent of the $220 billion defense/military budget. In other words, iflnterior's annual budget were assigned to the Department of Defense, it would close up shop at 2: 10 in the afternoon of the fifth day of the fiscal year. What does the American public get for its investment of $3.5 billion? And, why is everyone so upset with the new Secretary of the Interior? It is after all a striking phenomenon when the head of an agency previously little known east of the Mississippi is spontaneously and roundly booed by 75,000 people, as Watt was at arecent National Symphony concert on the Capitol grounds. No other cabinet officer in history has pro-

voked a million petition signers to demand his resignation. The Secretary of the Interior manages a department that is formed around agencies which often have conflicting roles: developing water projects versus defending wildlife habitat; encouraging mineral, oil and gas development versus protecting the national parks, refuges, wilderness areas and endangered species. Nevertheless, a well-trained and disciplined executive who attracts and seeks out good administrators - all sharing common sense and listening to competent legal advice - will ,find Interior manageable. Compared to HUD, HEW or Defense, Interior, with its 60,000 employees, is a small assemblage of extraordinarily gifted, well-trained, highly motivated men and women. Contrary to the current tre'n d of abusing professional government employees, I can honestly report that I never worked with a finer or more talented cadre. In the following discussion we will look at the major functions of the Department of the Interior and also examine some of Secretary Watt's proposals. (Two areas of Interior's responsibility - the Bureau of Indian Affair_s and oversight of U.S. territories- have been omitted in the interest of brevity.)

• The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages about 341 million acres of public land in our western states and Alaska. The lands provide forage for 6.7 million head oflivestock, 75,000 wild horses and burros, 2 million big game animals, and millions of other small creatures - birds, reptiles, and mammals. In addition to its responsibilities for grazing management, wildlife management, timber management, wilderness study, and general land management, BLM is the lessor of all oil and gas, coal and hardrock minerals on federal lands. Secretary Watt has proposed that vast new areas of public lands, offshore lands, and wilderness areas be opened for mineral and energy development. Yet the budget he proposed for BLM was 17 percent less than the 1981 level of funding. He has proposed reducing programs for management, assessment, and inventories of public lands, while dramatically increasing the use of those lands. While the overall budget is decreased substantially, the budget for accelerated onshore and offshore oil and gas leasing is increased substantially. For areas being studied for inclusion in the wilderness system under the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), BLM had stipulated that mineral exploration and development was permissible if the development did not impair an area's wilderness

characteristics. In April, 1981, Secretary Watt announced the end of the non-impairment standard. Instead, a more relaxed conditon for development will be "no unnecessary or undue degradation." Imagine trying to argue in court whether or not certain impacts were necessary. This new standard may very well render potential wilderness areas unsuitable for this purpose. While Secretary Watt is trying to take credit for renewed leasing of coal resources, he is, in fact, taking actions which will delay development. In September 1981, he moved to reverse a decision of his predecessor, Cecil Andrus, so that mining flush against the boundary of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah would be permitted, no matter how much damage it would do to Park values or scenery. Following this action, one of

Watt's political appointees said, "Of course we're going to reverse Andrus' decision. How can we attract redblooded American boys to the mining industry if we tell them they have to be ashamed to look at a strip mine from a National Park." Because of the Watt Interior Department's obvious biases, the coal industry can now expect public opposition to any proposals to mine near parks. That will increase litigation and delays, neither of which is in the interest of producing coal. Delays are also inevitable from the offshore oil and gas leasing program Watt has proposed. The Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program has been in effect since the OCS Lands Act was passed in 1953. Since that time, 20 million acres.of offshore lands have been leased for oil and gas development. Secretary


Watt has proposed to offer for development ove; the next 5 years, 1 billion acres offshore. Each year, he would offer more than 10 times the total area leased in the last 28 years. Several coastal governors objected to this program on the grounds that planning for the impacts of leasing such large areas would be difficult if not impossible for their states to handle. Their objections were summarily dismissed. Is this the "new federalism?" It might appear that the oil industry would be overjoyed at the prospect of so much new land to develop. Not so. In comments submitted on Watt's five-year proposal, ARCO said: "As we have previously stated, we are generally supportive of the final five-year OCS leasing program currently being implemented. It is quite aggressive. We are especially pleased with the schedule as it relates to Alaska where we are very active .. . We do not support the notion that the schedule must be drastically changed. It should be maintained." Pennzoil "opposes any revision which would escalate or delay the dates for the proposed sales as set forth in the existing five-year OCS oil and gas leasing program." It is unlikely that the oil companies will be able to find the equipment, trained petroleum engineers and geologists, or even the capital to develop these vast new areas expeditiously. Thus, even if they are leased, because of existing shortages of manpower and equip-

ment, they will probably not be developed any time soon. The oil companies will be buying, at 1982 prices, resources they may not be able to produce until the 1990's. That is not a fair deal for the American public, and it most certainly is not the way to expedite energy development. The Department of the Interior is the only government agency that makes more money than it spends. In fiscal year '81 the sale of OCS resources raised more than $6.7 billion. These revenues are from the sale of resources which belong to all the people of the United States. Resources belonging to all of us should be sold for a fair market price. Because the areas to be offered under Secretary Watt's proposal are so large, t}:le price paid by the oil companies for each acre leased will be less. The decision paper given to Watt on the OCS program made this clear: "There was agreement overall (Shell, Getty, Tomlinson, Arco, Mobil, Exxon, Sohio) that larger offerings will reduce the number of bids per tract on average." That means less competition. Less competition means a greater chance for scandal and also a smaller return for the sale of our public oil and gas. Does that make sense for an Administration trying desperately to balance the budget? Ithink not. • The National Park Service (NPS) manages and operates 327 units in the U.S. and lts territories. These include national parks, seashores, urban parks, recreation areas, national monuments, wild and scenic

rivers, and historic sites. In 1981, over 300 million visits were made to national park service areas. The Park Service utilizes over 20 percent of the total Interior budget. This figure, however, reflects Secretary Watt's decision not to request any funds for the Land and Water Conservation Fund program. Secretary Watt's proposals for our national park system can only be called Draconian. He says that we must "maintain what we have," and therefore suggests that there should be no money spent to acquire inholdings or newly authorized areas. Thus, he has proposed a massive cut in the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which provides money from offshore oil and gas revenues, primarily for parklands acquisition. Congress established the LWCF in 1965 on the principle that the proceeds from the exploitation of one valuable resource should be used to preserve another. Under this program, two million acres of land have been acquired for federal parks, refuges, forests, and BLM lands. Another two million acres have been acquired with these funds for state and local use. Historically, LWCF monies have been split between the state and federal governments, with the split generally favoring the states. For fiscal year '82, Secretary Watt has proposed zero funding for the state share of LWCF money, 100 percent for the federal government. Another fine example of the new federalism. I am not suggesting that we add new areas to the park system. I am suggesting that if we do not continue to purchase those areas, including inholdings, which have already been authorized, then we are not "taking care of what we have." Our failure to acquire these vital parcels jeopardizes the individual parks, makes management extremely difficult, and makes future purchases much more expensive for the taxpayers. An investment now of $1 per year per citizen will finish the park acquisition program in less than 7 years. I think that is a good investment. While Watt is, saying that we should take care of what we have, his actions belie his rhetoric. The Administration has proposed eliminating the requirement that significant deterioration be prevented in areas adjacent to national parks. He has further proposed eliminating the Youth Conservation Corps, which would have provided summer employment for 12,000 15-18 yearolds doing development and maintenance jobs in the parks at the minimum wage. Strip mining next to Bryce Canyon. Allowing smog in and around parks. Ending the YCC. I cannot fathom how Secretary Watt reconciles his policies with overblown rhetoric. And this is a man who calls others "extremist."

• The Fish and Wildlife Service is responsible for a wildlife refuge system of over 88.7 million acres consisting of 404 refuges and 19 wetlands management districts. Its facilities include 89 hatcheries, 5 development centers, 2 training schools, 12laboratories and 25 field stations. In 1980, national hatcheries managed by the FWS produced 175 million fish for release into the coastal and inland rivers, streams, lakes, and reservoirs. The FWS also has the principal responsibility for the protection of migratory birds, threatened and en-

dangered species, certain marine mammals, and international resources. At a time when energy and mineral development are being proposed at unprecedented levels, when more should be done to protect species which face extinction because of development, Secretary Watt has proposed to cut by over 30 percent funds for the study, listing, and protection of endangered species. The grant program designed to stimulate state endangered species policies would be cut completely. A cooperative program with 29 states, where federal research monies and staffs assist state wildlife programs, would be eliminated. Nationally, this program costs less than $5 million, yet it attracts $3 in state and private funds for every federal dollar invested. Here again, our loudest exponent of the "new federalism" contradicts his own rhetoric with his policies. There seems to be a pattern to Watt's actions. Like an impetuous child, he slashes budgets and jettisons programs because he has to have "results now" regardless of the long-term consequences. He is willing to saddle the public with large and needless expenditures in the future to look good for the President and Cabinet today. Nor does he bother to consult with the wise hands in the Department who could explain all the implications of his reckless proposals to him. He wants the immediate gratification of a savaged budget - no time to think about the results. • The Office of Surface Mining (OSM) is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of the Surface Mining Act. The Act was passed by Congress in 1977 after more than 10 years of hard work. Anyone who has seen strip-mined areas in Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, or elsewhere in Appalachia will understand the importance of this law. Much of Appalachia has been devastated. Strip mining, if not done properly, besides its obvious effects on the land, can cause erosion, water quality degradation, land instability, and other less direct impacts. On my first visit to Appalachia in 1971 I wept at the sight of eroded mountainsides, poisoned rivers, land that looked like a moonscape; but worse was what man, the strip miner, had done to his fellow man. In those back hollows, generations of Americans had suffered unbelievable indignites which are human scars just as visible as those on the landscape. The question here, as with most environmental legislation, is not whether or not to develop a resource, but how to develop it responsibly with the least damage to people and to other resources. The Surface Mining Act requires regulations for reclaiming stripped land and for proper mining techniques. Secretary Watt has proposed cutting the OSM budget by 27 percent. Most of that cut comes from enforcement programs. He has proposed deleting all parts of the OSM regulations dealing with public participation in enforcement and removing the requirements for on-the-ground inspections. He has also proposed that a mine owner be able to terminate a notice of violation by signing a statement that the violation has been abated, without any inspection to confirm the statement. I believe these proposals violate not only the spirit but the letter of the law.


STRIP MINING, which has devastated Appalachia, is encouraged by relaxed enforcement.

• The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) does topographic surveys and mapping. The Survey is also responsible for all geological and mineral resource surveys and maps, earthquake analysis and prediction, worldwide energy resource surveys, and water resource investigations. In addition, the Conservation Division of the USGS regulates all onshore and offshore oil and gas development, and assesses and collects royalties from the developers of those resources on federal and Indian lands. '\

• The Bureau of Reclamation carries out the federal interest in western water resources devdopment. The dams, which turned deserts into farmland, were built by the Bureau of Reclamation at taxpayers' expense. This Bureau is a curious combination - the deliverer of that vital western resource, water, and a pork barrel agency whose only rival is the Army Corps of Engineers. Lyndon Johnson said of tax breaks that "One man's loophole is another man's living." The same kind of comparison can be made with water projects- "One congressman's pet project is another congressman's boondoggle." Water projects are like everything else, there are good ones and there are bad ones, and we need to set priorities. In this context it is interesting to note that Secretary Watt has proposed the largest budget in its history for the Bureau of

Reclamation. At $838 million, it constitutes nearly 25% of the total Interior budget. No effort has been made to take on fiscally wasteful and environmentally damaging projects like the Garrison Diversion. The same old expensive games are still being played. The American taxpayers deserve better. • The budget of the Bureau of Mines, which does research related to mines and minerals, was cut only a fraction of one percent. Yet within the Bureau, there were changes. Watt recommended that the budget for minerals resources technology be increased substantially, and that the budget for minerals environmental technology be decreased considerably.

It is hard to think of an agency which affects more people, albeit indirectly, than Interior. Whether you know it or not, you benefit from those public resources. The oil or gas that fuels your home or your car may come from onshore or offshore public lands, as may the coal that fires the power plant that provides you with electricity. A fraction of the income from the sale of offshore oil and gas is used to purchase parks. Some of the income from the sale of onshore resources goes to states for educational and other purposes. Most of the money

from the sale of these resources goes to the general treasury and helps offset the federal deficit. The lamb or beef you had for dinner last night may very well have spent part of its life grazing on public lands. The fish you caught last summer may have come from a na~ tional fish hatchery. The ducks and geese you see by the shore probably spend a good part of their lives in national wildlife refuges. Budget~cutting in the Department of the Interior has been selective, indeed. All of those areas which deal with environmental protection and human welfare are to be cut - endangered species, environmental analysis, enforcement of the Strip Mining Act, national parks acquisition, urban parks development, Indian programs, territorial programs. All of those areas which deal with development are to be increased - OCS leas~ ing, opening wilderness areas and other public lands to oil and mineral development, coal leasing, dam building, and so on. Secretary Watt's so~called energy development pro~ posals are so extreme and haye so polarized the in~ terested parties that they feel no compromise is possi~ ble. Instead of bringing people together to discuss how to solve problems - where to lease, how fast to lease, which public lands to open for development - this has become an all~or~nothing game. Watt doesn't seem to understand that clear environmental protecton rules make development easier. They reduce public fears about development, and they allow industry to know what can be developed under what conditions. They provide for a stable development program. Watt's pro~ posals will only result in uncertainty, litigation, and delay. That is not in the interest of producing energy, and it is certainly not good management. Watt says he represents the real majority of Americans, and that those who oppose him are ex~ tremists. The Harris Survey last June released a poll showing that the American public overwhelmingly favors environmental protection. By 86 percent to 12 percent, a majority opposed weakening the Clean Air Act. The sentiment for the Clean Water Act was even stronger, with a margin of 93 percent to 4 percent op~ posing weakening. The National Wildlife Federation is considered one of the most conservative of the national conservation organizations. It polled its 4.5 million members, who voted for President Reagan by a majori~

ty of over 2 to 1, and found that "the overwhelming majority are opposed to policies M r. Watt has adopted or advocated." Watt began his tenure at Interior with a widely quoted commitment to the "new federalism," stressing his new "working partnership" and "good neighbor" policy with the states. Yet, when he decided tentatively to add four basins to an OCS sale offshore California, how did governor Brown learn of it? He read it in the newspaper. What a way to begin a partnership. Watt rejected the unanimous recommendation of the coal team, which included western governors, on coal leas~ ing goals. He has proposed changes to restrict the state role in offshore oil and gas decisions. In fact, Republican Governor Hammond of Alaska said that Watt's OCS plan "flies in the face of the new spirit of federalism that most western states welcomed with the election of President Reagan." Some neighbor; some partnership. Jim Watt calls himself a conservative. I submit to you that he is a radical who prefers name~calling and irra~ tional provocative policies to thoughtful change. We have proven over the last decade that environmental protection and energy development can both be achieved. His policies would halt both. But Jim Watt is sure he is right. He is the perfect embodiment of Am~ brose Bierce's statement: '" To be positive is to be mistaken at the top' of one's voice." Few would dispute that we need to cut back on federal spending, or that we need to develop energy and minerals. But we also need to establish intelligent and reasonable priorities. We need tobring people together to solve problems, not pit them against each other. We need development which recognizes the legitimate uses of other competing resources. We need stable, predictable ~nergy and resource development, not random, unplanned development. These needs are important to consumers, to communities, to industry, and to the nation. We also need to preserve our national heritage. Parks, whether urban, suburban, or isolated, provide an escape from the hard realities of day to day life. They have alway been places where citizens can regenerate their spirit, their creativity. They are impor~ tant to us as those few remaining places where our children, and their children, can see elk and moose, bighorn sheep and bald eagles, in the wild, rather than behind cages in the zoo. They allow us to know the awe our forefathers knew when they trudged across this continent 150 years ago and saw the Rockies or the Grand Canyon for the first time. At a time when the nation is seeking values, these are truly important ones. If wanting to protect these last vestiges of our natural American heritage is considered extreme, so be it. But I agree with Theodore Roosevelt, who said, "The conser~ vation of our Natural Resources is our fundamental problem; unless we solve that problem it will avail us little to solve all others." • Author Nathaniel P. Reed is a 1951 graduate of Trinity and a leading Florida environmentalist. H'(; served for nearly six years as A ssistant Secretary of the Interior during the N ixon and Ford Administrations.

QuadWran~es Stargazing with the Times

P

ublication of the New York Times Selective Guide to Colleges this spring has sparked a sizeable brouhaha on campuses throughout the country. Edited by Times education editor, Edward B. Fiske, the book covers some 265 schools, purported to be among the most selective in the nation. College guides have been around a long time, and most libraries and secondary school guidance offices contain several such reference works for students seeking a college. For the most part these guides are pretty tame stuff, and none has raised academic hackles to the degree achieved by Fiske's publication. The controversy appears to focus on three major areas. First, colleges fear that the imprimatur of the Times lends credence to the new guide out of proportion to its value to the reader. Second, some have challenged the methods used in compiling the book, primarily questionnaires completed by a relatively small sample of students and administrators. Third, there have been strong objections to the book's rating system, which compares institutions in three categoriesacademics, social life and quality of life (food, climate, pressure etc.). In his ratings, Fiske awarded from one to five stars for each category, in much the same manner that Michelin and Mobil judge restaurants and hotels. While Fiske claims the ratings were not meant to be competitive (in fact, public and private schools were judged on different scales), the natural tendency has been for readers to tally the total number of stars awarded and arrive at some sort of pecking order of institutions. This process has led to some surprising conclusipns. Three schools, Stanford, Brown, and the University of Virginia top the list with 14 stars. Eleven schools are in the second echelon with 13 stars; twenty-one schools merited 12 stars. The good news is that Trinity made the third grouping along with some distinguished company - Harvard, Williams, Swarthmore, Yale - and finished ahead of some highly regarded institutions such as Princeton, Wesleyan, Amherst and Bowdoin. The bad news is that Trinity scored heavily in social life (5) and quality of life (4) but only averaged (3) in academics. Amherst and Wesleyan, which scored lower overall, each got 5 stars for academics. Trinity's write-up is heavy on the social atmosphere and less flattering on intellectual interests. Typical comments include: "Prepped-out and partied up, Trinity

students are smart kids out for a good time at college." "You have to be an idiot to get lower than a B in most courses." " ... Trinity offers students the possibility of liberation not only from rigid academic requirements but also from hard work." Notably missing are references to the College's outstanding library, the quality of the faculty, the improving admissions picture, and the recent steps taken by the faculty to foster academic rigor. General campus reacton was aptly voiced by President English who questioned Fiske's attempt to assign a numerical rating to academics at any institution calling it an effort to "quantify the unquantifiable." Most here felt that given the rating system, Trinity scored at least one star too low in academics and one star too high in social life. In the wake of the guide's first edition, President English and many of his counterparts elsewhere submitted objections in writing to the Times, followed up by personal visits with Fiske. To its credit the Times responded quickly to the criticism. Future editions will no longer carry the Times' logo on the cover, thus removing the implication that the paper endorses the ratings. In some cases, Colby College for one, rankings will be changed in the light of new information. The impact of President English's critique is unknown at this writing. Obviously, it is still too early to measure the effect of the Times' guide. On the one hand, Trinity can take pride in the fact that it is "rated" one of the top 35 schools in the country, and is one of 265 colleges included in the book out of the 2,000-odd, four-year institutions in the U.S. On the other hand, such necessarily superficial institutional comparisons must be viewed with a generous helping of skepticism. Clearly, the function of all such guides is to provide a convenient first reference for the student just beginning his or her search for the right college. When it comes to making the hard choice, however, the answer is not in the "stars" but derives from in-depth research on curricular options, through campus visits, and by forthright discussions with those who know the institution best - faculty, students, admissions officers and alumni. To ensure the best possible match between Trinity and its future students, our continuing task is to help prospective candidates keep the guidebook literature in proper perspective. WLC

Sports WOMEN'S BASKETBALL=:==:==:= For the second straight season Coach Karen Erlandson has provided Trinity with its most exciting and successful team. Her women's varsity basketball squad won more games - fifteen - than ever before in its history, and the scrappy young Bantams went on to capture the Northeast Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship. Total teamwork was the secret ofTrinity's 1981-82 women's basketball accomplishments: all nine on the Bantam roster saw action in at least 19 of the 21 games played. Junior captain Terrie Johnson, the only member of the team who had played with such old-era stars as Cindy Higgins and Kathy Schlein, provided leadership, experience, and 91 assists from her point guard position. Sophomore Karen Orczyk, last year's MVP, was hobbled by injury throughout this past winter's

campaign, but still managed 12 points per game and a career-high 103 steals as pivot-guard. Classmate Debbie Priestley, Trinity's aggressive power forward, averaged 10 points per game for the 15-6 Bantams. But the one-two knockout punch for Trinity, the real catalyst in Trinity's outstanding season and two tournament championships, was a veteran-rookie combination: six-foot sophomore center Chris Lofgren and five-four freshman guard Karen Rodgers. Rodgers was named MVP of both the Whaling City Invitational Tournament, which Trinity won in December, and the NIAC tourney, which saw the Bantams take the Northeast crown. On the year she set Trinity single season records for assists (107) and steals (117) while scoring 12 points per contest. Lofgren was named the Bantams' 1981-82 Most Valuable Player. She was nationally ranked with 301 rebounds (a new Trinity record), and she led the team in shooting percentage

from both the field and the foul~line. Her biggest game came against the Cardinals of Wesleyan, where she scored 31 points and grabbed 32 rebounds. Her 15.5 points per game and her 27 blocked shots were also season highs for the Bantam women. One of the most important games ever played by a Trinity team took place late in the season, when the Naomh Muire women's basketball club of Dublin, Ireland, women's champion of the British Isles, arrived in Connecticut to play both UHartford and Trinity. The Bantams hung tough against a slick passing, de~ fensively sound Irish team, but finally lost, 66~63.

With not a player graduating from this 1981~82 NIAC championship team, coach Erlandson is under~ standably optimistic about the future of the program. Additions to the team can only help bolster the signifi~ cant depth that was so important to the winning ways of this past winter.

SWIMMING-------It was "the year of the swimmer" at Trinity College in 1981~82, with both the men's and the women's teams posting their finest records ever. The men had the more


difficult road to cross, as three one-point victories decided in the final relay event can aptly demonstrate, but they overcame all to finish at 8-2. The women featured a record trio of All-America swimmers, and they closed out the season at 7-3. Much of the credit can go to Dr. Chester McPhee, head coach of both teams, whose patience and perseverence prevailed over the long, hard winter. Eight Trinity women earned All-New England honors. Sophomore Martha Belcher won N.E. Div. III championships in the 50-, 100-, and 200-yard backstroke events. Lulu Cass, Laura Couch, Laura Gill, Michelle Parsons, Debbie Cronin, Susie Cutler, and Linda Gillett were the other All-N.E. Bantams. McPhee took Belcher, Couch, and Cass to the nationals, where all three were named to All-America teams in their respective events. For the men, All-New England swimmers Scott Bowden, Doug Gray, Rex Dyer, and Tim Raftis were the stars, but the measure of the team's success was its depth. Distance swimmer Chris McCarthy, diver Scott Keilty, and breaststroker Bill Huffer all provided crucial points in Trinity's trio of single-point triumphs, and the three of them spelled the difference between victory and defeat in the final meet against Clark, which gave Trinity its record eight wins. In the past four years Chet McPhee has sparked a renaissance in Trinity swimming. While the men will lose the imposing presence of captain Bowden, the women are losing virtually no front-line stars. The future of both programs looks reasonably secure.

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED: Dr. Chet McPhee, head coach of both men's and women's swimming at Trinity, is the principal reason why both teams completed their finest seasons ever in 1981-82.

WOMEN'S SQUASH=========== Sophomore Nina Porter proved her worth once again in 1981-82, as she emerged as the nation's number-tworanked women's intercollegiate squash player for the second consecutive season. She teamed with freshman Kat Castle, who also finished the year ranked among the nation's top ten, to lead Trinity to an 8-2 record. Coach Kirk Cameron's team performed admit_ably at Yale's Howe Cup tournament. The Bantams emerged ranked third in the U.S. overall, and first among small colleges. With her top two performers returning next winter, coach Cameron is looking forward to another successful campaign in 1982-83.

MEN'S SQUASH _ _ _ _ __ Coach George Sutherland's men's varsity was cited as the nation's "Most Improved Squash T earn" for its performance this past winter. The 1981-82 Bantams were 12-4, a tremendous comeback from their 8-10 showing of the previous season. Led by freshmen Bill Doyle and Mike Georgy, along with senior captain Peter DeRose, Trinity was ranked seventh in the U.S., all Divisions, and third among the nation's small colleges. Doyle earned All-America honors for Tril!-ity, as he finished among the top ten men's collegiate squash players in the country. He joins Nina Porter and Kat Castle from the women's team, and Martha Belcher, Lulu Cass, and Laura Couch from swimming, in the largest single season All-America contingent Trinity has ever produced. The five women All-Americans also constitute a Trinity record.

MEN'S BASKETBALL=====:===:

time, Trinity) and 701 rebounds (2nd place), becoming the only Trinity 1,000-point scorer to grab 500-plus rebounds as well. Other departing seniors: Jim Callahan, the sweetshooting forward who played in more games (91) and committed fewer turnovers than any other starter in Trinity basketball history; John Meaney, the unpre路 cedented three-time Bantam captain for three straight winning seasons; and Roger Coutu, perhaps Trinity's best sixth man ever. They will all be missed, but coach Ogrodnik is cautiously optimistic about the future. He may need some height, to make up for the loss of Callahan and Rapp, but forward Tom King, swing-man Jim Bates (13 ppg, 62 steals), and guards Dave Wynter (86 assists, 52 steals), Pat Sclafani, and Ron Carroll, should form the nucleus of a talented team.

13-10 is certainly a respectable showing, but in many ways this past winter season was a disappointment for the men's varsity basketball team at Trinity. Coming off a 22-4 season a year ago, :..Vith everyone returning, hopes were high for another championship contender this campaign. But injuries, upsets, and generally tougher opposition cost the Bantams some crucial games mid-way through the schedule. And when the dust had settled on the season's final game, a 78-76 loss to Wesleyan, Trinity was effectively out of the Div. III playoffs. The injuries were to three-year MVP Carl Rapp, to senior Roger Coutu, to key reserves Pat Sclafani and Ron Carroll, among many others. The upsets came at the hands of Bowdoin, WPI, Worcester State, and Wesleyan, to name a few. And the tougher opponents included Div. I Yale and Div. II powerhouse University of Alaska at Anchorage. There were some great moments under first-year head coach Stan Ogrodnik. Foremost among them was the stellar play of senior center Carl Rapp, whorebounded from an early injury to lead the Bantams in scoring and rebounding for the fourth consecutive year. Rapp's finest hour came against a strong Amherst team, at Amherst, late in the season, with Trinity still in playoff contention. In just three quarters, before succumbing again to his bad ankle, Rapp scored 30 points to lead the Bantams to a much-needed win. Rapp ended his career with 1,285 points (3rd place, all-

ICE HOCKEY===:===:===:===:===:=== It was another building year for coach John Dunham's varsity ice hockey Bantams, but he hopes it was the last. A number of talented young skaters came into their own this winter, and Trinity's 10-10-1 record is deceptive. Included in that .500 season are big wins over Div. II New Haven (3-2 in overtime) and Div. III powerhouse SMU (9-2). Trinity also played Wesleyan on the road three times and walked away with three victories. Trinity's top four scores this season were all underclassmen. Junior T.R. Goodman led the Bantam puck-


sters in scoring with 12 goals and 16 assists. Freshmen Barney Corning and Hugh Gorman each tallied twenty points, while rookie defenseman Chris Downs, a 6-5 transfer student, notched 19 points in just 16 games, and was named to the ECAC Div. III 2nd All-Star team. Chris Watras and Brian Clarke performed admirably in goal this season, and Trinity's defense proved the best ever, allowing just 30 shots on net per game. The two goalies stopped 88 percent of those shots. Coach Dunham was pleased with his team's performance this year, much better than the 7-14 showing last winter. He hopes that his talented young players, seasoned by a full year of competitive college hockey, will put Trinity back on the winning track, playoff bound, in 82-83.

WRESTLING~~~~~=== Despite a superb regular season performance by Outstanding Wrestler and captain Glenn McLellan, capped off by his fourth-place showing in the heavyweight division of the N.E. Div. III championships, the Trinity wrestling team went 1-8-1 on the year. The bright spot of the season for coach Mike Darr's team was a weekend at Brown, where Trinity tied Rhode Island College 28-28, and defeated their Div. I hosts 30-21 . That successful late-season tri-meet proved that coach Darr does have the material for a better team next year, with the likes of Sean Darby, Al Norton, and Jeb Head returning.

FENCING===:===:===:===:===:===:=:==:= Vladimir Dimanshteyn and Kathy Wallert had outstanding individual seasons in 1981-82. Still, coach Al-

bert Grasson's men and women fencing teams, captained by Ellery Brown, ended at 0-10 and 2-5 on the year, respectively.

NEW A.D.=

After 29 years of service to Trinity College, Karl Kurth, Jr., is retiring as Athletic Director, an office he has held since 1966. Rick Hazelton, assistant professor of physical education, and head coach of men's and women's track at Trinity, will become the new A.D. on July 1st. Kurth came to Trinity in the autumn of 1952. He immediately became head coach of varsity track, leading that team in some of its finest seasons. He also coached the linemen on Trinity's football team, most notably during the undefeated campaigns of 1954 and 1955. In 1966 he replaced the legendary Ray Oosting as Athletic Director. Under his tenure Trinity expanded from just ten varsity teams to 23, the George M. Ferris Athletic Center was completed, and an enormously successful women's program was launched. Professor Kurth is a past president of the Eastern College Athletic Conference, and he was instrumental in the founding of the New England Small College Athletic 'Conference. Rick Hazelton came to Trinity from Amherst in 1974. For the past seven years he has been Trinity's head track coach, as well as coach of the defensive line and linebackers in football. In the summers he has served as director of the National Youth Sports Program at Trinity. He will become an associate professor of physical education, and also hold the office of department chairman in physical education.

The reception at President James F. English, Jr.'s house, followed by the dinner in Hamlin for GEORGE M. FERRIS was a notable event indeed. There were some 80 or 90 of us there. Classmates (alas, only a few of us available), friends, family, alumni, and many others within the Trinity fold. As you know, this affair was in honor of one of George's endowments to the College - the George Ferris Chair of Economics and Banking. After the formal banquet, there was a very relaxed and enjoyable gathering in the Faculty Club, adjoining the dining hall.

As Secretary of the Class of 1916, I was pleased to receive a fine letter from Anne Zartarian, director of financial aid. She lists the names and addresses of four very successful seniors - two men and two women, Class of 1982, recipients of Class of 1916 Memorial Scholarships for 1981-1982. Zartarian says, "Their success at Trinity is tangible evidence that your generosity makes it possible for us to extend financial aid to highly qualified students unable to afford the full cost of a Trinity education. Without support such as yours, we would be severely limited in our ability to assist such students. In the years to come, gifts from private donors and foundations will become increasingly important as the Federal government reduces its role in the financing of higher education." I have received two very fine letters from two recipients, and I want you all to read them. Write me and I will send you a copy. SAMUEL BERKMAN writes that "As Dean Emeritus in Residence at Hartt School of Music of the University of Hartford, I am still considered on the staff with 'no responsibility.' I was one of the founders of the original Hartt School of Music. As for Trinity - how fortunate in its new President!" Following herewith is a story which should interest all Trinity alumni/ae. We have a close friend nearby holding a very important position at Yale as map curator, one Barbara McCorkle. She found it necessary to study and write about a book in the field of world geography written by Pat Gordon in 1728. The title was Geography Anatomized. She was advised that it was a very rare book and there was


probably one copy in the world. Where to find it! She went first to Yale and then to Harvard - no dice. Finally she was advised to go to Louisiana State University, who told her to try one very possible place, to wit: Trinity College's Watkinson Library. She did and the Trinity librarian laid out the red carpet for her. Found the book in no time, and everyone was happy, including Yale, Harvard and L.S.U. Trinity scored again that time for sure. Hope some of you will show at the "Half-Century" club dinner on campus come June. GEORGE FERRIS tells me he will come and play some golf with us. Let me know early, and we will fix up a game.

The Union Boat Club of Boston newsletter published a nice story on our own LISPENARD "LIPPY" PHISTER, who has been an active member of the club for five decades and is described in the newsletter as "one of the real pillars of our organization." Lippy began rowing in 1930 at age 33, joining the club that same year, and rowed for 43 years. Then, at age 77, he suffered a broken leg and was ordered by doctors not to return to rowing. He also played squash in the Club from 1930 until 1945. Lippy has seen the club grow in membership and physical size over the years, and shared many of his reminiscences with one of the newsletter's editors. Class Agent: George Kolodny

Your SECRETARY stated in the winter edition of the Reporter that he had a back ailment and lo and behold a couple of you did contact me to inquire about my recovery. First, BISHOP CONNIE GESNER wrote me wishing me good health and God's blessings which, of course, I could use, especially during the Lenten Season. He reported that he and wife, Claudia, endured the rigorous winter without illness. They had a week of respite from the north winds as guests of friends at Sanibel Island, Florida. Then I received a phone call from dapper PAUL NORMAN, which was indeed a pleasant surprise. Paul was also solicitous of my health. Paul is still modeling, appearing in magazines, and occasionally on TV. He attended the homecoming TrinityWesleyan game with KEN SMITH '25, the retired director of baseball's Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, NY. Paul is feeling fit and chipper at 81, just as spry and agile as the days when he cavorted around first base for dear old Trin, a Ia George Sisler of the old St. Louis Browns. He sends his regards to everyone. How about writing to him? His address is 235 East 22nd St., NY 10010. Class Agent: Sereno B. Gammell

BILL HAWLEY writes that he has been living in San Diego, California, since 1976. His address is 2927 Governor Drive, San Diego, CA 92122. His daughter, Stella Skitch, is deputy headmaster at Elmhurst Ballet School, Camberly, England. Son, William, is a registered medical representative with Syntex Laboratories, Palo Alto, CA. WALDRON "RED" O'CONNOR writes, "Though living in a small community some 75 miles west of Washington, I find ample opportunity to be continuously occupied. I find the designation 'retired' a misnomer. It does have limited applicability, which is a good thing." He also adds that his hair is no longer red. ELMER D. MULFORD wrote us a long and newsy letter from his home in Bridgeton, NJ. He sold his Buick franchise last year, a business his father had started in 1917, and which he took over in 1935 after his father's death. "A long and arduous road in this vulnerable business," notes Elmer, who now has a two-year contract as sales representative for the new dealer. "Not bad for an old 'dog' like me," writes he. Elmer's wife, the former Alice Westbrook, lived in the other half of the house that HERB and DICK NOBLE lived in on Burnside Ave., East Hartford. Her father was president of Noble-Westbrook Manufacturing, he writes. Helen has been a teacher of speech and dramatics, and still gives private lessons in speech correction, plays golf and takes courses in painting and picture framing at a nearby community college. The Mulfords' daughter, Caroline, lives in Westport, CT, with her husband, Jim Owens, and three children, her oldest daughter having just graduated from the University of Vermont. The Mulfords' son, George, lives in Swarthmore, P A, and teaches French at the University of Delaware. He has two children and lives close enough to Bridgeton to visit often. Your reporter and wife, Marge, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on August 27, 1981. Daughter, Joan Zurolo, is vice-president of Mark Medical Supply Corporation in North Haven, Conn.

MOSES "MOE" LISCHNER, retired pediatric doctor, is now working for the State of Connecticut, Department of Income Maintenance, as a medical consultant. Moe lives in Apartment 4-E, East Lane, Bloomfield, CT 06002. Knowing Moe, as 1 do, he just could not "sit put"; he had to do something as an outlet for his energy. We look forward to seeing him in the late spring at the "Immortals Dinner" and in his usual seat at the football games in the fall. DAVE HAD LOW and his bride, Mary, vacationed in Hawaii during the winter months and very likely are home now. We look forward to seeing them at the "Boat House" during the crew season and with the Trainers. GEORGE MALCOLM-SMITH sent me a note saying he is praying that we shall all be together in June to celebrate our 57th. A notice will be sent out. ERWIN BRISTOL COOPER called me recently and told me he was 80. He threatened to come back to a reunion one of these days. He lives, retired, in Jersey City, NJ, in an apartment-hotel and visits his sister in Hamden, CT, regularly. We hope he can make one of the football games in the fall.

KEN SMITH also called me and said that he plans to move back to Cooperstown, NY, home town of the Baseball Hall of Fame which he served so well and the location of the amateur opera company in which he performs. BETTY NOBLE, widow of DICK NOBLE, who passed away a few years back, died February 16, 1982, while on her annual winter vacation at her daughter's home on Mercer Island in the state of Washington. Betty had been ill with a circulatory problem for about six months. Betty had a nice life, and, with Dick they cruised the Atlantic seaboard numerous times in a cabin cruiser with friends. They belonged to the Milford Yacht Club, attended many athletic events at Trinity, enjoyed giving small dinner parties for friends, and rarely missed Trinity reunions. Betty maintained most of these activities to the end. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to her devoted children, Nancy and Dick, Jr., their spouses and her grandchildren. Her joie de vivre, love of sports, and interest in her friends will be missed. Class Agent: George Malcolm-Smith

Just a reminder to fellow classmates that the deadline for these notes is usually a couple of months prior to actual publication. Normally, there are unpublished notes in the oven when your reporter receives word of the deadline for the next issue. So if your SECRETARY goes back a bit in time, don't think he's trying to pass on ancient history. A card from STAN BELL tells me that things in Rochester are still fine and that the BOB CONDITS stopped by on the way back from Lake George to their home in Florida. It's a pretty good bet that these two AD buddies had a great gab session. ROGER HARTT sends a photo of their 50th wedding anniversary group. He was surrounded by his kin of four children, their spouses and eleven grandchildren. Roger, the patriarch, in his immaculate white suit, was plumb in the middle of it all. Can anyone of 1927 top this? For the first time in years, the FORRESTERS have skipped their mid-winter sojourn to Florida, but they do have "on hold" a forthcoming trip to Britain and, of course, Scotland. The flyer has now been released for this year's reunion in June. Our 55th. No definite plans as yet, but we hope for a good turnout. Mter all, at our age how many more reunions may we hope to attend? See you? Editor's Note: Your SECRETARY has just learned of the death of STANLEY BELL on February 24th. The information in this news report was written prior to Stan's death. His obituary appears in the "In Memory" section of this issue of The Reporter. Class Agent: The Rev. Robert Y. Condit

Your SECRETARY was privileged to participate in the first of the Jubilee events that are commemorating the fifty years since the College Chapel was consecrated on June 18, 1932. On Sunday afternoon, February 7th, the Chapel was filled with students, alumni, faculty and administrative staff. The preacher was ARTHUR WALMSLEY, Class of 1948, and now the Bishop of Con-

necticut. Your SECRETARY was chosen to be his chaplain, a function involving no arduous duties or protective responsibilities for the youthful-looking Bishop, but purely ceremonial with a nostalgic effect since some oldtimers remember that my father, LOUIS I. BELDEN, Class of 1894, was chaplain to Bishop Brewster when he consecrated the Chapel in 1932. Your SECRETARY was glad to walk without stumbling and lead the Bishop in the right direction, all carrying out the well-marked directions of Alan Tull, present chaplain of Trinity College. In this Jubilee year of the College Chapel, keep note of many varied events at the College. Class Agent: J. Ronald Regnier, Esq.

31 News from Florida: JOHN "JACK" GOODING reports his present lifestyle includes living nine months a year in Florida and three months up North. He planned to attend the 50th reunion but abandoned the idea when his Florida Gulf community asked him to set up insurance specifications for bidding purposes. He reports that he was happy to do so, but it delayed his trip North and made him miss the 50th. CHARLES E JACOBSON, JR., retired from tQ.e practice of medicine (urology) in July of 1981 and he says he is now "trying to find activities that can replace the excitement and sense of fulfillment that medicine provided for 40 years."

He loves Trinity in June and is one of the many returning to join the "Immortals." We expect a great turnout. See you there! Class Agent: Richard C. Meloy

Increasingly, thirty-seveners are mentioning our 45th reunion in their conversations and communications. Everyone is hoping for a bang-up turnout and a great time. CHESTER SOULE reports a new address: 10220 River Road, Potomac, MD 20854. Chet is the owner of the Potomac Insurance Agency and Real Estate Company in that town. HOWARD GALE has now established permanent residence in St. Augustine, Florida (545 Sevilla Drive, 32084), and I suspect he still maintains a summer home in Old Saybrook, CT. IRVING FIEN has closed his private medical practice and is now part-time M.D. at Chevron U.S.A. in Concord and Richmond, CA. RAY DEXTER is "just enjoying active life" in a retirement community in Cromwell, CT, where his wife is codirector of recreation. Ray does volunteer recreation for her, "as well as reversing some of our former roles in life." GEORGE LEPAK writes that he is enjoying the so-called winter weather in Florida. His note arrived on a particularly bitter Connecticut day. George and Ann spend much of their summer time visiting the West Coast where three of their children live, and Litchfield, CT, where their oldest daughter lives. ,, BILL HULL must be the most active retiree in the '37 roster. His last letter from Florida reports much activity in the Shrine Temple in Sarasota, he was just returning from a three-day square dance outing at Lehigh Acres, and he had scheduled an immediate upcoming week at American Bankers Association meeting in New Orleans. Come back to Guilford and rest up, Bill. Class Agent: William G. Hull

JACK WILCOX has been named class representative to the Alumni Committee on Endowment, succeeding the late EARL FLYNN. Your new class SECRETARY has been involved with "a lot of ice and snow" and has managed to stay on top of that with the aid of "a pair of skis, a pair of skates, and occasionally a toboggan full of grandchildren."

40 RAYMOND FERGUSON reports a new job as Coordinator of Youth Education for the Alcoholism Council, Inc. He also says he had a great weekend with WILFRID F. "WILLIE" GREENWOOD and DONALD J. "D. J."

"HERB" BLAND. Herb joined R. C. Knox in 1952, subsequently becoming its managing partner and later its president. He will continue in the role of senior consultant, working one-quarter time.

The College community was saddened to learn of the death of GEORGE STUBBS of Coconut Creek, FL, in November. An obituary for George is published in the "In Memory" section of this issue. RICHARD B.

Since my last report, your SECRETARY has had occasion to mourn with two Trinity friends. In October, my college roommate, DICK MORRIS '40, lost his wife, Anne. And in December, Mary, wife of CHICK KIRKBY, lost the struggle against a lingering illness. The friends and classmates of Dick and Chick will join me in expressing our deepest sympathy. BILL RYAN writes that since May 1, 1981, he has been a resident of Lawai, on the Island of Kauai. One would think that Monterey, California, Bill's previous legal address, should be pleasant enough surroundings for any reasonable man, but,


always looking for better things, he pushed on. Apparently he has finally struck pay dirt since he describes his present surroundings as "Paradise." Ending with a cheery "Aloha," he says "stop in and see me." For those in the area, Bill's telephone number is (808) 332-9019, and his mailing address is P.O. Box 124, Lawai, Kauai, HI 96765. The temporary reduction in the Trinity population of California will be remedied by BILL HOWARD who is retiring as Senior Master after 30 years at Kent School, and is moving to Santa Rosa. DON DAY has retired as director of corporate personnel at Aetna Life and Casualty. I have no news on his retirement plans so we'll assume that unlike his two classmates, he will continue to brave the rigors of Connecticut winters. Class Agent: John T. Carpenter

JIM MURRAY, one of the nation's top sports columnists, with the staff of the Los Angeles Times, is doing a regular feature with The Hartford Courant. The Courant asked Jim to reminisce about his childhood home, Hartford, CT. Herewith are some of his reminiscings: "I was a scatter-armed outfielder, a choke hitter (not the bat, my throat), a lip fighter and a lonesome end - lonesome because I drifted AWAY from the play. If there was

one thing I hated worse than tackling anybody, it was being tackled by anybody. I played freshman baseball at Trinity College in Hartford where I graduated anyway. I was an uncertain outfielder and a craven hitter, but I was the MOST VALUABLE PLAYER on the pinball team at the college tavern because I set the school record for getting the 'tilt' sign off without putting another dime in. All I know about football is some expert told me years ago to 'watch the guards,' and I've been doing it ever since. I haven't seen a touchdown in years - since a guard fell on a fumble at Notre Dame. As far as I was concerned, the Galloping Ghost was just that." CARL WILLIAMS writes that he is still teaching math at Salisbury School, still spending the summers on long wilderness canoe trips in Quebec, still coaching skiing all winter and still loving it. MIKE KELLIN writes with enthusiasm of his sea duty aboard GEORGE DESSART's ('48) sloop "First Amendment" of which he is "first mate, second mate, cabin boy, bailer, and binocularpasser." George is vice president and assistant to the executive vice president of the CBS Broadcast Group.

JACK CURTIS has been doing some exciting legal work over the last several years. Recently, his activities were written up in Forbes magazine. Specifically, Jack has been working with such companies as Rath Packing Company in Waterloo, Iowa, and most recently with Pan Am to create employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs). In Pan Am's case, the carrier should expect to save up to $200 million in wage costs over the next year. In return, the employees will get another 12o/o interest in the company as well as a seat on the Board of Directors. The typical ESOP candidate, according to Jack, is a crisis-ridden company with no choice but to render some control to employees. Thus, if you are in need of Jack's outstanding legal help, you might call him at McQuaid, Ludwig, Bedford, & Curtis in Washington, D.C. His telephone number is (202) 342-0499. We received our annual Christmas letter from DON BISHOP and his wife, Jemma, and their three children, Jerome, John Patrick, and Edward.

John L. Bonee III 50 State Street Hartford, CT 06103

According to the Chapel Hill newspaper, our classmate, BOB DUNCAN, is doing a fantastic job as associate director of the Episcopal Chapel of the Cross at the University of North Carolina. He has helped form St. Gregory's Guild of Actors and Musicians, bringing together both artists from the community and the University; he has set up a network of assistance for street people in the area; he organized a medical work mission to Haiti, and he has saved a fraternity on campus. All of this has earned him the "Town and Gown" award sponsored by the Greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce. His message is that the role of the church is to "comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable." Dubbed the "preppy priest" by the students on campus, he has thereby attempted to distinguish himself through basic tweedian informality as being distinct from both the establishmentarian three-piece suit crowd and the anti-establishmentarian dungaree crowd. THOMAS LOM has been elected to the board of directors of Compton Advertising, Inc. ERNIE MATTEI, our class agent, has made partner at the Hartford law firm of Day, Berry & Howard.

Pottash has published more than 80 articles, with his collaborators, on research in biological psychiatry, psychopharmacology, drug abuse, and laboratory medicine . I am sure most of us cannot forget the zeal with which DAVE MOSS attacked his drums at the Trinity College jazz band. Your SECRETARY will never forget freshman year at South Campus hearing the muffled rumble of his classmate practicing long into the night on his hard rubber platter with his drumsticks. A few lines from the January 1982 Hartford Advocate will attest today's continuing terrific success: "If you're feeling stodgy and bored, take a friend to the Protean Theater and catch two of the wildest humans on the planet busy being themselves: Phil Minton and Dave Moss. David Moss is a bearded, friendly giant who is transformed when surrounded by his 'touched sound' surfaces: drums, cymbals, gongs, steel drums, plastic pods, zither, tubes, rocks, water, wood, toys, Bertoia Sound Sculptures, and much more. Moss has released a solo album of improvisations and appears on Meltable Snaps It, an album featuring fellow free spirits Michael Lytle and George Cartwright. Moss is a blur as he becomes, simultaneously, a one-man demolition and construction crew of sound, tearing down and carefully building new frameworks that hover complete for mere seconds before the aural architect bangs out a new blueprint." D. J. REILERT has recently received the title of graphics and print manager of Alvin & Co. in Bloomfield, CT. He aho has a son, Geoffrey Jonathan, born November 28, 1981. ANDREW SHAW, an attorney in Randolph, NJ, has been appointed municipal judge for Randolph Township. He is currently serving as the president of his local Rotary Club in addition.

Greetings!! We've had a terrific response to the January mailing, so I am going to split the column and cover the news on classmates attending graduate schools this time, and fill in on those of us out in the working world for the next issue of The Reporter. But first, congratulations are in order to several classmates who have recently become engaged or married. MARY EIGLER writes that she will be getting married to Michael Megar (Southern Conn. St., Class of 81) on September 11, 1982. DUTCH BARHYDT writes that he will be marrying Hilary Chittenden (Conn. College, Class of 81) in Trinity's Chapel in August of this year. Hilary spent her senior fall at Trinity as part of the 12 College Exchange. SIDNIE WHITE became engaged to Timothy Martin in January of this year. Several classmates have also recently been married. JOE LENNY ADAM married Diane M. Knight in August, 1981. Lenny is currently attending U. Conn School of Pharmacology. HUNTER MAYO WHITE also had an August wedding; she married Gregory White (Hamilton College) and she is now working as a French teacher for the Darrow School. Moving on to classmates who are currently attending graduate programs, I've

found that we have Trinity representatives all over the eastern seaboard and in a variety of other areas as well. Beginning in Vermont and working my way down the coast- LESLIE RICHARDSON is a first year medical student at the University of Vermont. ANDREA LIND is studying for her master's in computer science at Dartmouth College. Andrea writes that she will finish in 1983 and she plans to work in New York this summer. As with the last issue, many of our classmates are studying in Massachusetts, especially the Boston area. PETER BENNETT is studying at the Northeastern Business School. PAULA SARRO is attending Boston College Law School and, CHRISTOPHER HOPKINS is also a law student in Boston - he is enrolled at Suffolk Law School. In the greater Boston area, we have two classmates in Worcester: ROBERT ORENSTEIN recently completed a graduate semester in biomedical engineering and is now obtaining clinical experience at Mass. Medical Center, and LARRY ROSENTHAL is studying chemistry at Clark University. In Amherst, ANDY DAVIS is studying psychology at the University of Massachusetts. And finally, KEN PERRY is yet another Massachusetts law student. Ken is attending Western New England Law School in Springfield. Not surprisingly, many members of the class of 1981 settled in Connecticut. At least four aspiring lawyers are now attending the University of Connecticut Law School - CARL SCHIESSL, MIKE REINER, LOUIS BROMBERG, and SAUNDRA KEE. JOHN MILLER is also a graduate student at UConn, although I am not sure what he is studying. MYRON GUDZ is working on his master's in Biomedical Engineering at Hartford Graduate Center. He expects to graduate in June, 1982, and will then join the ranks of many of us who are now seeking employment.

She is also working part-time at Cadwalader, Wickersham and Taft as an evening word processor. JOE CAMILLERI is a medical student at New York Medical College. Also pursuing a degree in New York is HOLLY DOREMUS, who is studying at Cornell University. CATHY SCHWARTZ is a first-year medical student at SUNY Downstate Medical School, and PAUL VELARDI is a first-year law student at Albany Law School. And because there is, to my knowledge, only one lone Trinity grad wandering the streets of New Jersey, I am putting JAMES LONGENBACH in with the New York contingency. Jim is attending Princeton University, where he is pursuing a master's degree in English. In Washington, D. C., CYNTHIA MATTHEWS is attending Howard University, where she is studying to become a doctor. Also in D. C. is LAURA ROULET, who is a master's degree candidate at Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies. It was great to hear from so many of you.
