Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP ACTIVE
A weekend drive to clean up the immediate neighborhood around Trinity and the planting of pine trees on campus were the first activities in a year-long, student-led campaign to focus attention on environmental issues. Lisa Donahue, a senior and resident coordinator of Jarvis, had the idea for the program as a follow-up to last spring's very successful Awareness Day. Donahue's idea was to have an "Earth Week" at Trinity in April which would hopefully coincide with the national Earth Day in the spring and include a range of activities centered around environmental issues such as energy, pollution and conservation. After discussing her idea with Tom Liscord and Kevin Morse, also seniors and resident advisors in Jarvis, the three expanded the original concept to include a variety of events leading up to the Earth Week in April. The first of these events was the neighborhood clean-up and tree planting, which took place October 31. About 20 students in three groups combed the areas around the College, looking for litter and gathering about 40 trash bags full of garbage in the space of about two hours. Following the clean-up, participants gathered for refreshments and a ceremonial tree planting, to commemorate the spirit of the day. The three pine trees, donated by the College's buildings and grounds department, were planted beside Elton Hall and on the Summit Street side of Mather Hall. Another community clean-up is planned for this spring, when a neighborhood group, Hartford Areas Rally Together (HART), is expected to take part. In the meantime, other Earth Week Coalition activities will be taking place on campus. One such event, debates and discussions after the screening of the film, "No Nukes," took place in November. Coordinator Lisa Donahue emphasizes that many different types of events, even to include a concert or films, will take place in connection with Earth Week. Other groups on campus have taken the lead from the Earth Week coordinators. AIESEC's President, sopho-

more Mary O'Brien, has announced that her organization will try to arrange for a speaker from either Northeast Utilities or United Technologies to present the corporate view of energy and environmental issues. AIESEC would also like to sponsor a speaker to address the topic of international energy problems in conjunction with the club's theme this year. The Trinity Outing Program hopes to increase students' awareness of nature issues by sponsoring a presentation by the Appalachian Mountain Club. More ambitiously, the Outing Program hoped to have a representative of the Department of the Interior come to campus to discuss environmental policies. And, the Alumni Association may arrange a visit by a Trinity alumnus working in an environmentally-related area to come to campus and speak on his or her area of expertise.
COTTER INTERNSHIP FUND ESTABLISHED An endowed fund in memory of
U.S. Congressman William R. Cotter, which will support student congressional internships in the nation's capital, has been established at Trinity. The Tomasso family of New Britain, Connecticut, has set up the fund as a tribute to the late Congressm ~m Cotter, a 1949 Trinity graduate and U.S. Representative from Connecticut's first Congressional district from 1970-1981. Cotter died September 8, 1981. The fund, which currently stands at $10,000, will be maintained within the endowment of the College, and the annual income used to support one or more Trinity student interns in the Washington, D.C. offices of U.S. Senators and Representatives from C6nnecticu t. According to 'El,izabeth Cotter Adinolfi, the late Congressman's sister, "My brother always took a great personal interest in making sure that young people, who were destined to be the future leaders of this country, had a working knowledge of the government. He was also aware and con-
Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk cerned that living expenses in Washington were prohibitive for many college students. Therefore, he would be pleased and proud, as I am, of this fund in his memory." In accepting the gift, Trinity President James F. English, Jr. commented, "We are deeply grateful to the Tomasso family for their generosity. Bill Cotter was a distinguished alumnus of this College, and it is fitting that there be a perpetual fund at Trinity in his memory. This gift will allow us to provide another dimension to o ur lon g-standin g program of student internships in government, by assisting undergraduates who wish to serve as Congressional interns on the n ation al level." William R. Cotter, a Hartford native and a lo ng-time friend of the Tomasso family, majored in history and economics at Trinity, and was awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1949. In 1973, he was the recipient of a 150th Anniversary Award from the
College. His father, William W. Cotter, was also a Trinity alumnus, class of 1911. Cotter was elected to the Hartford City Council in 1953, and was an aide to Governor Ribicoff from 1955 to 1957. H e served as insurance commissioner for the St ate of Connecticut from 1964 to 1970. Cotter was elected to Congress in 1970, and served as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, chairman of its subcommittee on Select Revenue Measures, a member of the subcommittee on Social Security, and as the New England Democratic Regional Whip. Additional contributions to the Cotter fund will be welcomed by the College. Interested persons shou ld contact the Director of Development at Trinity College.
CAREER COUNSELING REPORT ON SENIORS The number of students going di-
NEW OFFICERS of the Trinity Parents Association were elected by the board of directors to serve for the 1981-82 academic year. Photographed following the fall director's meeting were (l. tor.): Vice President Joseph}. McAleer of Stamford, CT; Secretary Nancy See of New York City; and President Cecil B. Broderick of Scarsdale, NY.
reed y from Trinity to graduate school has declined, according to statistics compiled in the Senior Survey of the Class of '81 and published in the 1980-81 annual report of the career counselin g office. Seventy-three percent of the members of the Class of '81 completed the Senior Survey, wh ich is sim ilar to the response rate of recent years. Of those responding, 25 percent indicated that they expected to be enrolled in fulltime graduate study this year, compared with 30 percent in the Class of '80, 34 in the Class of '79, 32 in '78 and 38 in the Class of '77. Of those planning full-time graduate study, twenty-five percent or 20 students, were entering law路 school and fiftee n percent, or 12 students, were going to medical sc hool. Only eight percen t of those seniors reporting, or six students, planned to enter graduate school in business. C hristopher J. Shinkman, director of career counseling, thinks that the sma ll decline in the number going on direct 1y to graduate study in business reflects what the sch ools are say ing to students, as well as their own initiatives. He feels that in some cases, students are being encouraged to get experience by working for a while in b usiness and industry before applying to business school. "Students still value the M.B.A.," S hi nkman n oted, adding that they may want to go to a top sch ool for the degree. If a student cannot go directly to that first-choice school from Trinity, h e or sh e may decide to work for a while and apply again later. The Senior Survey also reported that 96 members of the Class of '81, or 30 percent had accepted an employment offer. Of these, 31 obtained the position as a direct result of oncampus employment interviews conducted through the career counseling office. Forty-two percent of survey respondents p laced themselves in the "undecided" category (employment options and/ or applications for gradu ate stud y still pending), and three percent, or ten students, indicated they planned to travel after graduation. In areas of em ployment, Trinity students demonstrated the "usual" interest, Shinkman noted, in insurance,
Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk
banking, investments and manufacturing, and, curiously, a small resurgence of interest in the Peace Corps and Vista. While interest in these two organizations had dropped off in recent years, Shinkman said that this year they came to campus twice to recruit and had full schedules both times. He speculates that students may look on service in the Peace Corps or Vista as an "interim activity," something that they can do for a short time before settling down permanently in a career or going to graduate school. Of those seniors going directly into careers after graduation, the greatest numbers were reported in the following fields or jobs: insurance, 15; banking, 12; engineering, 6; accounting, commodities, computer systems, consulting, and education, 4 each; and paralegal, research assistant (health area), and retailing, 3 each. Highlights of the work of the career counseling office in the 1980-81 year were noted in the annual report as: preparation of a video tape on interviewing strategies, which was shown to groups of students, and to individuals; publication of a new, updated Alumni Parent Career Advisory Directory, completed with the assistance of the alumni office; and installation of SIGI (System of Interactive Guidance and Information), a computer system designed to help students with career planning. For the first time, also, last year the office's biweekly newsletter began distribution to all four undergraduate classes. The second annual Alumni Career Day was held in March, followed later in the spring by the Career Externship Program, which this year involved 29 students. The office also intensified its efforts to increase the number of summer job opportunities for undergraduates, beginning with a mailing in the fall to prospective summer employers. In addition, a special edition of the newsletter was published, highlighting summer opportunities and including a questionnaire for students on their 1980 summer experiences. A summer opportunity workshop was held in February, and a mailing, done in conjunction with the alumni office, was sent to all alumni to solicit news of summer or permanent job opportunities. The mailing, which resulted in 76
positive responses and news of a 路wide variety of jobs, was so successful that the office plans a similar campaign this year to include parents and friends of the College.
SUMMER JOB LISTINGS SOUGHT Are you or your firm looking for qualified summer help? If so, don't overlook Trinity as a resource. The Career Counseling Office, in conjunction with the Alumni Office is again sponsoring a summer job bank for current undergraduates. Alumni, parents and friends of the College with summer employment opportunities for students are urged to notify the Career Counseling Office as soon as possible. A form for submitting job openings appears on page 41 of this issue. Last year, more than 75 summer openings were provided by alumni from varied .areas including child care, sales, research, restaurant work, computer programming, tutoring and forestry, to name a few. This year, with the squeeze on various federal and state aid programs, more students than ever will require summer employment opportunities. Positions will be posted and advertised on campus as they are received throughout the spring. Since most students begin to make their summer employment plans early in the semester, prospective employers should submit job information as soon as it is available.

CHAPEL MARKS 50th ANNIVERSARY Sounds of joyful celebration will emanate from the Chapel in the coming months, when the 50th anniversary of its completion will be observed.
Called the Trinity Chapel Jubilee, the celebration will encompass a full range of recitals and concerts, lectures and special events throughout the Trinity term and leading up to a service on June 18th, which is the actual 50th anniversary of the consecration of the building. While the Chapel has observed earlier anniversaries, namely the 25th, there has not been one before of the magnitude of Jubilee, according to Chaplain Alan T ull. A Fiftieth Anniversary Committee, cochaired by the Rt. Rev. Lyman C. Ogilby and the Rt. Rev. Arthur E. Walmsley '48, has worked with the Chapel office on planning of the jubilee events for over a year. It is hoped, T ull notes, that many relatives of the Chapel builders will be on hand for the events, in addition to guests and lecturers from as far away as Cambridge, England, and Dallas,
A FASCINATING COLLECTION OF HAITIAN RELIGIOUS ART, never before publicly shown, was on display this fall in Trinity's Austin Arts Center. The colorful paintings, the work of some of Haiti's best-known artists, are from the private collection of Mr. and Mrs. Robert C. Graham (left and right in photo) of Stamford, Connecticut. The Grahams, who have galleries in New York and St. Croix, mounted the exhibit at Trinity with the assistance of Dr. Leslie Demangles (center), associate professor of religion and director of intercultural studies, and an authority on Caribbean religions. The exhibit drew so much interest that it was held over in Austin Arts for an extra two weeks in December.
PHONOTHONS A SUCCESS Last fall, regional phonothons were held in New York, Washington, and Philadelphia, along with the national phonothon in Hartford. Callers included 38 alumni and 48 undergraduates who raised $60,000. Congratulations and sincere thanks to all who participated. This spring, the Development Office plans to hold regional phonothons in Boston, Chicago, and San , Francisco, as well as another national phonothon in Hartford. Anyone interested in joining the phoning fun, please contact Elizabeth Droney in the Development Office (203-527-3151, Ext.
Texas. (A full schedule of the Jubilee events appears on the back cover of this issue of the Reporter). Commenting on the upcoming anniversary, President James F. English, Jr. said: "There are so many reasons for joy in this celebration. First, we are continually aware of the central place the Chapel has in the ongoing life of the College. We're grateful for this opportunity to pay tribute to this very special building and to celebrate its many contributions over the years. Beyond the fondness that we in the Trinity community have for the Chapel, the building itself is one of national significance architecturally. And, the story of its building, during the terrible Depression years 1929-32, coupled with the devotion of the Chapel builders to accomplishing only the finest quality work, is truly remarkable. Our hope is that many alumni, as well as friends of the College, will be able to take part in the events being offered as part of the anniversary celebration." A Festal Jubilee Service on February 7th began the celebration; , the Rt. Rev. Arthur E. Walmsley '48, bishop of Connecticut, gave the sermon. A special choir of students, faculty and staff, other members of the College and alumni, was assembled for the occasion, and a new composition by Robert Edward Smith, composer-in-residence of the Chapel, was premiered.
Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk
The culmination of Jubilee takes place on June 18th, 50 years after the consecration of the Chapel, with an Anniversary Service. Giving the sermon at the service will be the Rt. Rev. Lyman Ogilby, b ish op of Pennsylvania and son of Remsen B. Ogilby, Trinity's 12th president and the guiding force in the b uilding of the Chapel. At the consecration ceremonies in 1932, the Rt. Rev. William Lawrence, bishop of Massachusetts, made the following charge to President Ogilby: "In the chan ging habits of family life and the loosening of religious teaching in the h omes, the young men coming here have a right to ask that Christian fa ith and worship be so exp ressed as to meet their needs, an d so adopted to the thought, philosophies and ethics th at they are working out, that Christ, His life and ideals, will be wrought into the warp and woof of their character." Admiring Bishop Lawrence's farsigh ted comments, Chaplain T ull n otes, "While now we must meet the needs of men and women, this visionary charge still expresses the challenge of the Trinity College Chapel."
ANNUAL GIVING AHEAD OF GOAL Annual Giving 'at Trinity has hit a new mid-year record, exceeding the College's best hopes for the first half of the 1981-82 academic year. College officials and Annual Fund directors had predicted a surge in giving before December 31, b ecause the new tax laws passed under the Reagan Administration favored charitable donations more in 1981 than in 1982. It now appears that Trinity may be able to raise more money over the entire year than originally projected. By December 31 the Alumni Fund, largest component of the Annual Fund, had reached 54 percent of its $650,000 goal, with the average gift up 18 percent. Alumni have given 28 percent more so far this year than in the first semester of 1980-81. "I am sure this momentum will carry us to new heights by June 30," said President James F. English, Jr., on hearing the figures . "The College is increasingly dependent on Annual Giving and this remarkable show of

support h elps us plan confidently for the future." Last year's Fund contributed 5 percent ofT rinity's $ 17.2 million b udget. An nu al Fund Chairman Edward A. Montgomery, Jr., '56 was elated by the figures. "We had anticipated an increase in the level of year-end giving," he sa id, but the results exceed our expectations and we are extremely gratified. Of course, the most difficult part of our campaign is still ahead of us, and we need the support of our many alumni , parents an d friends who normally contribute between January and June."
COLLEGE INITIATES POOLED INCOME FUND At the suggestion of alumni in the C lass of 1936, the College has started a new pooled income fund which seeks a high rate of return on its investments.
A pooled income fund is a joining of gifts in a single fund maintained by the College. Income earned by the fund is paid quarterly to designated recipients -usually the donor a nd/ or the donor's spouse - with the principal designated to become ultimately the property of the College. The idea for the new fund was born at t h e annual Cape Cod Chowder Party in A ugust, when Stewart Ogilvy, A lbert Dexter, Herbert R. More and Sherwood Raymond, all members of '36, suggested it to President English. T h e High Income Fund, as it is called, was formally established by the trustees in November. By January 1982 the Fund had four donors, including two members of the Class of 1936, one alumnus from another class, and the widow of an . alumnus. Accordin g to Alfred C. Burfeind, associate director of development in charge of Trinity's deferred giving pro-
Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk grams, "The College is greatly pleased by the response to this new fund. It provides a useful way for a person to help Trinity in the long run, while obtaining immediate tax benefits and preserving income to meet family or personal needs." Trinity has been maintaining pooled income funds for donors and beneficiaries for nearly two decades. The High Income Fund is one of three such funds through which donors currently may contribute to the College. The other funds are invested in ways that provide reasonable current income along with the possibility of growth of income. Individuals wishing more information about these funds should contact Burfeind in the development office.
FACULTY AWARDED NEA/NEH GRANTS Two Trinity faculty members learned this fall that they had been awarded grants from the Nation al Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities. Dr. Alden Gordon, assistant professor of fine arts, has received an NEH Fellowship for College Teachers to complete research for a book on royal art patronage in old regime France. He will take a full year's leave of absence in 1982-1983, and will spend the fall semester in Paris. Gordon has been asked by the Louvre Museum to prepare an exh ibit, to be shown in Paris in 1984, on the political and artistic background of such well-known French monuments as the Place de !a Concorde, the Louvre, and the Petit Trianon. His book and the exhibit will be an examination of taste in art collecting in private circles during the Enlightenment, as well as in commissions to the best-known French painters of the day, including Boucher, Chardin, Fragonard, Vernet, and Vanloo. Gordon, a 1969 Trinity alumnus, earned his graduate degrees from Harvard. Before joining the faculty in 1978, he was curatorial assistant at the Frick Collection in New York. Thalia Cheronis-Selz, writer-in-residence in Trinity's English department, has been awarded a $ 12,500 Creative
Writing Fellowship Grant for 1981-1982 by th e National Endowment for the Arts. The grant was awarded on the basis of a long chapter in her forthcoming novel, The Greek Garden. The novel is a war story, set in Chicago in 1942. She will use the NEA grant to work on another book, Cloud of Gold, which is about the New York art world in the 1960's. Cheronis-Selz, a graduate of Oberlin College, with a master's degree from the University of Chicago, joined the Trinity facu lty this year. She teaches courses in creative writing and literature. She is the author of many published short stories and novellas, and her work has been anthologized in The Best American Short Stories and Prize Stories: the 0. Henry Awards. Cheronis-Selz has taught at the University of Missouri, Pomona College and Columbia University.
PHI BETA KAPPA ELECTS 15 Fifteen members of the Class of 1982 were inducted into the ranks of Phi Beta Kappa in December. The Trinity chapter, known as the Beta of Connecticut, was chartered in 1845 and is the eleventh oldest chapter in the United States. The students are: Regina E. Bonsignore , a studio arts and English major from Fairfax, Virginia; Daniel D. Cave, an econom ics major from Clinton, Connecticut; Sandra B.Y. Chin, a psychology major from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Scott G. Estabrook, a biochemistry major from Far Hills, New Jersey; and Andrew S. Goldberg, a physics major from West Hartford, Connecticut. Also, William M. Griswold, an art history major from Camp Hill, Pennsylvania; Thomas M. Hefferon, a political science major from Ridgefield, Connecticut; Allison C. Howe, a psychology major from Wall, New Jersey; Nancy L. Kessler, an English major from Millburn, New Jersey; and Amy C. Kuntz, a Spanish major from Windsor, Connecticut. Also, Robert P. Leavitt, a biology major from Longmeadow, Massachusetts; Meredith A. Lounsbury, a psychology major from Simsbury,
Connecticut; Janet W. Lyon, an English major from Hartford; M. Eric Woods, a computer coordinate major from Decatur, Illinois; and Jocelyn McWhirter Zug, a religion major from Simsbury, Connecticut. Additional elections to Phi Beta Kappa will be held in March and May of this academic year. No more than 10 percent of the senior class will be admitted to the scholastic honor society.
SGA ELECTIONS In campus-wide elections held this fall, seniors Thomas A. Hefferon and Carolyn F. Ginsburgh were selected president and vice;president, respectively, of the Student路 Government Association. Hefferon, a political science major from Ridgefield, Connecticut, has been active in student government since his sophomore year. H e was a member of the Presidential Search Committee last year, and has been on the Curriculum Committee, as well as serving as a resident assistant in his dormitory. Hefferon is currently the President's Fellow in political science, signifying outstanding academic achievement in his major. He has participated in Trinity's Legislative Internship program at the State Capitol. Ginsburgh, an English major from Chevy Chase, Maryland, was captain of the junior varsity tennis team this past fall. In her junior year, she studied at Trinity's Barbieri Center in Rome, and was enrolled in the Institute of European Studies program in London last summer. She is a resident assistant in her dormitory and was an SGA dorm representative for three semesters.
PRESIDENT'S FELLOWS NOMINATED Twenty-five members of the Class of 1982 have been selected by the facu lty as this year's President's Fellows. Each academic department and program nominates one senior major each fa ll for this honor, using as criteria outstanding achievement in the major as well as evidence of wide-ranging intellectual interests. The Fellows meet
Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk with the President and members of the faculty and administration several times in the course of the year to discuss a variety of topics relating to college life and other educational issues. This year's Fellows are: American Studies

NEW ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT HEAD Dr. Joseph D. Bronzino, Vernon D. Roosa professor of applied science, has been appointed chairman of the engineering department at Trinity, for a term which will be effective through June, 1984. A member of the Trinity faculty since 1968, Bronzino received his B.S.E.E. from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and his graduate degrees in engineering from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He was promoted to full professor of engineering at Trinity in 1975 and Roosa professor in 1977. Since 1969, he has been director and chairman of the biomedical engineering program at the Hartford Graduate Center. Bronzino was recently awarded a grant for $186,000 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences for research on pain, which he is conducting with Dr. Nancy Kirkland, assistant professor of psychology at Trinity. The research involves study of the brain mechanisms involved in suppressing pain, and the effect of electrical and pharmacological stimulation of the brain on pain. Bronzino is the author of more than 50 articles and is currently completing his second book. He was recently elected to the administrative committee of the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers Group of Engineers in Medicine and Biology (IEEE/GEMBS). This group serves its more than 20,000 members by planning an annual conference, supporting regional activities and assisting in developing technical and educational opportunities.
ARCHIVIST SEEKS OGILBY ANECDOTES College Archivist Peter Knapp is looking for alumni recollections about Trinity's twelfth president, Remsen B. Ogilby, who led the College between 1920 and 1943. Anecdotal material submitted will be used as part of the exhibits being prepared for the Chapel Jubilee this spring denoting the fiftieth anniversary of the completion of the Trinity Chapel.
Alumni submitting materials should send them to Knapp at the Trinity College Library, Hartford, CT 06106.
SEABURY, MATHER PROJECTS PROGRESSING The College continues to make progress on plans to renovate and expand Mather Campus Center, as well as on the restoration of historic Seabury Hall. Over the last year, the entire basement and substantial sections of the first floor of Seabury have been renovated. Forty-four offices, housing primarily humanities faculty and the Registrar's operation, have been constructed or refurbished. Under the direction of DEW Architects, in Hartford, the project has involved the straightening of hallways and the installation of seating for students waiting to see faculty, the installation of carpeting and indirect lighting in halls and offices, and the building of bookshelves. Occupants seem particularly pleased by efforts to recall the traditional appearance of Seabury, accomplished by the careful selection of colors and materials for walls, carpeting, doors and woodwork, and by the construction of cotnmon rooms for deparmental activities. A committee of faculty, staff and students is currently considering proposals from three architectural firms experienced in historic preservation to work on other sections of Seabury. Full or partial preservation is contemplated for several spaces, including the old chapel (Seabury 9-17), the science laboratory (Seabury 16), the librarian's office (Seabury 46A), and several classrooms. According to Vice President Thomas A. Smith, full preservation would involve the restoration of the fabric of the room (walls, floors, decorative details) and its furnishings, accessories, lights, etc. Partial preservation implies a respect for the original setting, but permits the use of unobtrusive, sympathetic modern furnishings. The 'w ork done in Seabury thus far in the basement and first floor is an example of adaptive reuse, where space originally designed for one purpose is converted to meet present and projected needs, with an

eye on maintaining the aesthetic integrity of the building. The preservation effort will take place over the long-term, Smith explains, and will depend, in part, on the availability of funds for the project. Some work has already been done to improve energy efficiency and to modernize Seabury's steam heating so that it can be converted to a hot water system. Though the main steam lines were relocated during the basement renovation and baseboard heating installed in offices, the system is difficult to regulate. Another challenge still to be met is the building's fenestration. The leaded windows in Seabury, which are original, are aesthetically pleasing but energy inefficient and must be replaced. More insulation is needed
under the entire roof of the building, but the lack of space between ceiling and roof in some sections is a problem. Seabury Hall, the oldest building on campus, was designed by the distinquished British architect, William Burges, and built in 1878. Constructed of brow nstone from Portland, Connecticut, it is one of the nation's finest examples of Victorian Gothic collegiate architecture. The five-level structure con tains faculty and three administrative offices, classrooms, dance studios, and housing for sixteen students. Funding for the Seabury project has come from a variety of sources, including a $150,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and gifts from the George F. Baker Trust, the
Pew Memorial Trust, the Booth-Ferris Foundation, and an anonymous donor. The target date for beginning renovation and expansion of Mather Campus Center is June, 1982. At their fall meeting, the trustees accepted the interior concept presented by the architectural firm of Russell G ibson von Dahlen of Farmington, Connecticut. The board asked the architects to provide another design for the exterior of an addition to the east side of the building. This addition will allow for a major expansion of the Cave, with which the Pub will be incorporated in the basement, and will add about 250 seats to the undergraduate dining hall on the first floor. It is envisioned that the added space on the second floor over the existing dining hall will be used primarily for student activities offices. In extending the facade to the east towards Austin Arts Center, the ground will be cut away to create a window wall on Mather's basement level, a feature which was particularly appealing to all the groups that reviewed alternative plans for the build'ng. Other basic improvements will include the provision of handicapped access by the installation of an elevator, upgrading of the mechanical and ventilating systems and the inclusion of air conditioning in selected areas, the installation of insulation and other means of reducing energy consumption, and the expansion and modernization of the kitchen. Committees of students, faculty and staff, as well as the Board of Fellows, have been consulted on the Mather project. The alteration and expansion of the building are expected to cost about two million dollars. Mather Hall, which houses most student services, was built in 1960 when the student body numbered about 1000. It was expanded in the 1970's to accommodate additional dining space, an enlarged bookstore, and more offices. The decision to enlarge the building once again follows several studies by various campus groups who concluded that improvements to Mather were necessary to foster spontaneous and informal contacts among students and faculty, as well as to accomodate the activities of a burgeoning number of student organi~ations.

In his Inaugural Address, President English stressed the importance of maintaining and enhancing the quality of the educational encounter at Trinity. "We must hold our students to the most exacting standards," he said, "but we can only do that if we who are faculty and administrators also demand the highest performance from ourselves." He also affirmed Trinity's commitment to the Hartford community, noting the mutual enrichment that occurs between the College and the City. "For Trinity, he stated, the remarkable, old, but very contemporary, city around us is the setting in which this creative process proceeds." "We at Trinity are privileged indeed," he concluded. "We can devote ourselves single-mindedly to the questions men and women have always found most demanding and exciting. We can draw insights from the city around us and test our perceptions
against the daily realities that flow through its streets. Let us be grateful for our opportunities and find delight in the work before us."

Topping off the day were two receptions, one in Austin Arts Center, the other in Mather Campus Center, where delegates, faculty, students and friends greeted the new president and his family, and offered appropriate champagne toasts to the success of the new administration. , Among the well-wishers were two former Trinity presidents, G. Keith Funston and Theodore D. Lockwood. Both marched in the academic procession, Funston as a trustee and Lockwood representing United World Colleges.

On behalf of the student body I would like to welcome the administration, faculty, staff and friends. The inauguration of President English is the beginning of his presidency. A member of the financial and banking community, Pr.esident English brings with him new insights into the world of education. When I was a freshman, I chose the seminar "Society, Business, and the Individual" taught by Mr. English. His seminar taught me how to understand the decision-making process of large business enterprises by allowing me to attend the shareholders' meetings of local corporations. As an academic counselor Mr. English has also helped me shape my future. As advisor for a year and a half the decisions made concerning classes were made together. Mr. English became a very important part of my academic life, as well as my friend. He was always the first person I went to for advice concerning classes and other aspects of college life, and I greatly appreciate his sound advice. The choices that we make now become the foundation for all our future achievements. I would like to quote Geoffrey Chaucer from his Parliament of Fowls on education,
Members of the board of trustees, members of the administration, faculty, fellow students, honored guests, and Mom and Dad; About a month ago, things were a lot different around here, with the campus in the throes of freshman orientation and the return of upperclassmen. Most of you know what a confused and forgettable time which that can be. Yet, this year, Mr. English made that time unforgettable. One of the activities of that week is the annual evening Open House at the Women's Center. As I proceeded up the dark Mather stairs at about 10:30 at night to attend that event, I was surprised to see in front of me Mr. and Mrs. English making the same pilgrimage. It was only a minute later, when they were greeted at the Women's Center door, that I realized how surprising this visit really was. It was noteworthy because Mr. English had taken the personal initiative to drop in by surprise, with the rest of the freshman class, in order to demonstrate his commitment to student interests. Well, I'll tell you this about that - I have never seen so many smiling, happy and proud T rinity students as I saw that night in that small room. The effect of the visit was
"For out of old fields, as the saying goes Comes the new harvest, year by passing year: And from old books, as everybody knows Comes all the latest learning to appear." President English has many fields from which to harvest. In his new position as President of Trinity College, the fields of law, finance and banking will serve as a rich background for the cultivation of his educational beliefs. On behalf of the student body I welcome President English. â€˘
MEMBERS OF THE ENGLISH FAMILY listen attentively as the newly installed sixteenth James F. English, Jr., delivers his Inaugural Address to a receptive audience.
of the College,
Greetings from the Students new era and the old era which we witness here. We students gladly celebrate the Inauguration as the beginning of a new era whe~ we hope to see more visits such as this. Yet, our skepticism remaining from the old era and its _lingering problems, means that we will remain easy to surprise with such visits for quite some time still. Our new president will have to find a solution to that conflict if he is to succeed and if we all are to move ahead. I am confident that, despite this disquietude and the puzzle of this paradox, our new president will succeed in completing this delicate mediation. My optimism springs not from what he can do, but from who he is. You see, Mr. English has the ability but he has more than that, because he has the spirit for the job. Anyone can do this job, but only someone who has captured its essential spirit can do it right.
devastating, and fantastic. I'll not soon forget it. Besides making that week memorable, the event which this anecdote describes illustrates a fundamental paradox about the Trinity of today. The paradox lies in the mix of the
What is this spirit which he has captured and which will enable him to solve the present paradox? It is nothing less than the essence of commonality between Mr. English and myself or any other student. The something which we all share, simply put, is school spirit; the fact that we all love Trinity College - from the outstretched arm of the Bishop to the inner recesses of Jones pits, fromÂˇthe
high-collared formality of a trustee dinner to the mind-deadening craziness of a midnight run to Makris Diner. All of us, including Mr. English, know and nonetheless still treasure this special place. We want nothing but the best for our college and will work towards that goal. This dedication and commitment which we all share will enable Mr. English to lead us in tackling the paradox of the day: blending the old and the new, with a dash of style, to come up with solutions. We have seen results, albeit limited, already: a cheerful Women's Center and a working lemon squeezer. Mr. English, it is because you feel this way about Trinity and thus will be able to help us all to work positively together that we welcome you today. In a real sense, that makes you one of us. Adlai Stevenson once said in a different context, "In America, the land of opportunity, anyone can become President - and that's just one of the chances you take." We all took a bit of a chance by saying goodbye to Mr. Lockwood who did so much to improve our college. Luckily, however, not just anyone became our president. We got someone very special. W elcome Mr. English and good luck. Thank you. â€˘

Greetings from the Faculty J. BARD McNULTY Goodwin Professor of English and Secretary of the Faculty, Trinity College
It is a pleasure to bring the greetings and good wishes ~f the Trinity College Faculty on this occasion. It will be the pleasant responsibility of future historians of the College to look back on the term of presidency which is now beginning, and to chronicle its outstanding achievements over the years. But we do not have to .wait for that future to be certain of one feature of this presidency that will c~rtainly form part of that record. James English is the first president of Trinity College to have come to that office through a selection process in which the Faculty has played an official and very substantial role. This is a fact which augurs well from the outset. President English's ties with the Faculty over the years have been close and cordial, extending far beyond the good things he has been able to accomplish in the financial life of the College, and beyond what he has done to make life more comfortable for Faculty members after their retirement. He has, like the rest of us, en-
tered the classroom at Trinity as a teacher of undergraduates. He is a familiar figure at lectures and other public events at the College. Senior and junior Faculty members alike have come to know him, too, as a frequent congenial mealtime companion in the College dining hall. All these and many other ties form a strong basis of support at the start of President English's new _career. As secretary of the facu lty I have probably had as good an opportunity as any of my colleagues in working with President English on various committees and projects. I have come to admire his skill at defining goals and then setting the pace toward their achievement, a great gift for one who is to lead an educational institution of the stature of Trinity College. The Faculty looks forward to cooperating with our new President in achieving the educational and other goals which are our mutual concern. On behalf of the entire Faculty, Mr. President, I wish you every success in your tenure of office. â€˘

Greetings from the Alumni ROBERT N. HUNTER '52
Back in 1977 Jim English was named Connecticut Man of the Year by Connecticut Magazine. In that article there was some material which does not appear in the ordinary biography. One particular item that caught my attention was Jim's response to the question of why the chief executive officer of Connecticut Bank and Trust Company would leave that lofty post to become vice president of finance and planning at Trinity. Jim said, "I just wanted to do something different, something with less management responsibilities, so I wouldn't have to deal with day to day detail of running a business." Jim, I believe I speak for all Trinity alumni when I say I'm glad that you have reconsidered your position and are now ready for another big challenge. It is your background of leadership, intellecutal pursuits and compassion for people of all walks of life that gives us great pride and confidence as you succeed one of our own as presi-
dent of Trinity. As an association we have dedicated ourselves to the support of our Alma Mater. This support has taken many avenues, but all, we hope, have been constructive to the growth of the College. Many issues have concerned us over the past few years, but let me speak to four in particular and recognize the support you have already given sever-
al. For example, your assistance in helping us raise funds for both the operating needs and endowment of the College has been extremely important. We hope to continue working with you to give Trinity the financial support it greatly needs and deserves. Secondly, we have been concerned about class identity and its ancillary beneficiary, school spirit. The reinstituting of the "Lemon Squeezer," a 19th-century symbol of class identity which was awarded annually to the top class at Trinity, demonstrates your support of our goals. One of Trinity's greatest assets is Hartford - a city of diverse people, businesses and institutions. Continuing and broadening Trinity's ties to the community at large will be a
growth experience for students and faculty, as well as for the city and its people. Clearly your background as a local businessman, past president of the Chamber of Commerce, leader in formation of the Hartford Neighborhood Housing Service and trustee of Wadsworth Atheneum, as well as director for both Hartford and St. Francis Hospitals, indicates your community involvement. This should be a sound basis for even a better relationship between the college community and the city. Lastly, our association would like you and your administration to consider the appointment of a minority alumnus to the board of trustees. Our rolls abound with highly qualified individuals who we believe will provide your administration with broader perceptions of the total community. Trinity, like other small, private educational institutions, is facing difficult educational, social and financial challenges, but we have confidence that, through your leadership, Trinity will meet these challenges successfully, and, toward that end, we pledge our full support. â€˘
Greetings from Sister Institutions There are times, and this is one of them, when rivalries on the football field or basketball court assume their proper perspective. Those annual contests between Trinity and Wesleyan in somewhat different settings, played in somewhat different costume - are surely marvelous events. The participants are men and women who are before anything else students; they are sensibly coached and there is spirited action, to the sound of fun and healthy partisanship in the stands. But these are games. Neither side forgets - at least not for very long that they are only games and that's a good t h ing. For rather th an th is competition, this athletic rivalry, a sense of kinship, of common cause in the independent pursuit of liberal education is what defines the true relationship between our institutions.
So it is not only a great privilege but a genuine pleasure to take part in this family even t today, this ceremony of continuity of leadership in private education for the public good. On behalf of you r sister institut ions, I congratulate Trinity College for its wisdom and good fortune in finding within its own ranks a president who has already demonstrated his competence and h is commitment to the College and its future. I congratulate President English for his courage and for his proven understanding of the inextricable linkage of t he practical and the ideal on which the fut ure of independent h igher education depends. As some of you know, this is Wesleyan's sesquicentenn ial and down the river we have been deep in commemorative activities which will last throughout the year. This anniversary has led me to think much about origins and purposes, not only of t h e beginnings of my own little university b ut of its many counterparts throughout the cou ntry, particularly in New Englan d. Trinity and Wesleyan were both offspring of t h at extraordinary outburst of 19th -century go-getting zeal when colleges sprang into being at a rate far beyond the young nation's capacity to use or sustain them. College-founding, according to one educational h istorian, "was undertaken in the same spirit as canal-building, cotton-
ginning, farming and gold-mining." No one seems to know for certain just how many brave little academies had th eir brief moment in the sun, an d then expired of neglect and undernourishment. We do know that the infant mortality rate was high. In many cases the passion that went into their conception did not carry over into their care and nurture. It has been estimated that by mid-century as many as 700 colleges may have come and gone. Many of these were products, and perhaps victims, of that intense denominational desire to establish academies that would ensure an educated m inistry and some higher learning for the sons of the faithful. There was also, of course, fierce rivalry between regions and among communities to have a college they could call their own. (That's a bit of history which 路 astonishes some city fathers today.) In those difficult days, Washington College, now Trinity, was a trailblazer for the rest of us. Its Episcopalian sponsors had to fight quite a battle for a state charter. T h e legislature was partial to Congregationalists who already h ad an educational venture going in New Haven and who were dubious about the need for, or the desirability of a second college in the state. When the Methodists came along seven years later, the legislators were far more amenable to the cause, having recently been persuaded by the Episcopalians. Wesleyan is in Trinity's debt for that path-breaking, as well as for the heightened desire among Connecticut communities to have their own citadel of learning once they had been spurned in favor of Hartford. M iddletown went to some lengths to outbid its rivals the next time the opportunity for a college presented itself. Neither Wesleyan's nor Trinity's early years were easy ones. They were times of h ard struggle and near disaster. Why then did these two tiny institutions last when so many others were succumbing? Obviously, the reasons are many and various. But I think it safe to say that both were infused with unshakeable faith in the rightness and the necessity of what they were doing. Faculty, trustees and loyal supporters - chief among whom, as the years went by, would路 be alumni - believed that there was a

place, that there had to be a place, for an institution guided by a vision of an education fit for a free people. It would be grand to say that our colleges, having not only survived but thrived, could relax now and rely on the benefits of early struggles. That we know would be folly. For the travail of the small independent institution dedicated to that mode of learning which liberates is an endless one, and the years ahead may be as hard, as testing, as any in our past ... Clearly, we have to guard that resource base on which our enterprises rest. Yet, in doing so, we must never neglect that moral base which has brought us so far. Liberal learning is not as widely understood or appreciated as one might think. It is an ambiguous term which lends itself to distortion. It can be made to look elitist, impractical, effete, irrelevant - name your own epithet. But it is that one form of education which offers what Cardinal Newman called "a connected view of old and new, past and present, far and near ... and without which there is no whole arid no center." Our society will desperately need liberally educated men and women for leadership and service in the years ahead. It will need, perhaps more than it ever has needed, independent institutions like Trinity and Wesleyan which by their independence can set standards, cut new curricular paths, explore, innovate, stand against the uncertain tides of the moment, and take the lo.n g view of man's purpose and man's prospects. I have no sure belief that all those colleges which call themselves liberal will be able to stand against the forces that threaten us. But I have every fait h that your college and mine will not only weather whatever lies ahead, but will continue to play a significant part in the intellectual and ethical development of a small but oh so important segment of our population. On this day of good cheer and high resolve, I bring to Trinity College and, in particular, to your new President, James English, the warmest wishes from the faculty and students, the trustees and alumni of your old rival and enduring ally in the worthy cause. And I salute you Jim on behalf of your sister institut!ons. Gaudeamus!
Inaugural Address BY JAMES F. ENGLISH, JR. O ctober 3, 1981
octor Starkey, I thank you and this College community for the trust you repose in me. I know that I assume a heavy responsibility in undertaking the leadership of this old and distinguished institution, to which so many have devoted their lives and substance, and for which so important a future lies ahead. I accept your trust and pledge to you that I will fulfill it to the best of my ability. And I thank all of you who have come here today. You honor me, but far beyond that, you honor this College and the principles on which it rests. People often ask me, "What is it that makes Trinity significant? What is its uniqueness?" I have come to see these as two distinct questions. For the source of Trinity's primary significance is not unique but consists of a conviction and a responsibility, both of which it shares with several handfuls of other colleges and universities, many of which are 'represented here today. We hold the conviction that intellectually gifted and motivated young people are best prepared for useful, satisfying lives - for lives in which their inter路 ests may grow and shift, for lives into which careers can be healthily integrated - by a particular educational experience. This experience is an intense engagement, under the guidance of scholars who are also dedicated teachers, with the basic and perennial questions about man himself, the natural world around him, a:q.d the institutions and traditions he has created to live at peace with his fellows. These alone are the questions which, because they can never be answered, can never grow stale. To struggle with them is to become acquainted with the greatest minds and spirits our race has known. It is to feel the exhilaration of sharing as partners, thei::- search for truth. Last month the parents of a Trinity freshman wrote me: "(We) ... are indebted to Trinity for introducing our daughter ... to the headiness of philosophical study, the challenging thickets of psychology, and the vibrant excitement of the intellectual life . . . " That is our commitment.
OPENING MOMENTS of Inaugural Address.
Our special responsibility comes from the resources we, as an institution, have inherited from a generous past and receive today from loyal supporters. They enable us to provide this engagement between teacher and student. Indigent though we often feel, we are, in fact, rich in the strength of our faculty, the depth of our library , and the quality of our student body. And, thanks to these century-old buildings, we are also a residential community, where young men and women of diverse backgrounds can increase the depth of their social consciousness and the range of their personal relations even as they stretch their minds and imaginations. If this co.nviction and this opportunity are central
to Trinity's significance, then our primary mandate is clear. We must do everything in our power to make sure this remains a diverse, lively, and mutually supportive residential community. Even more important, we must maintain, and even enhance, the quality of the fundamental educational encounter which takes place in our classrooms and laboratories. We must hold our students to the most exacting standards, but we can only do that if we who are facu lty and administrators also demand the highest performance from ourselves. We must continue to give of our energies even to t h e point of sacrifice and give with grace, for this is the cost of the great calling wh ich we have gladly chosen. And I doubt not that if we to whom this College is entrusted for the present maintain its undoubted quality and integrity, those beyond the campus who respect and cherish it will help us sustain it for the future. But the second question remains, "What is unique about Trinity?" As with a human being, our uniqueness probably lies not in one trait, but rather in our own particular mixture of many. Our campus is graced with memorable, old buildings, and our annals with the names of d istinguished Episcopal bishops. Some years we even have powerful football teams! More important, we have a remarkably flexible curriculum, which gives our students broad opportunities to pursue their interests but also imposes on them heavy responsibilities for defining and developing them. For this reason, our faculty advising is close, and we are generally a supportive and caring community. Beyond th is, we have another unusual quality. You will see evidence of it if you will glance to your right. Unlike most colleges which share our commitment and our responsibility, we live in a city. Our location helps give us our particular flavor. Past Presidents of the College

Hartford, moreover, is an unusual city. It is an ancient Yankee river town, full of history and tradition. It is a state capital and the seat of several other major educational insitutions. It enjoys an unusual wealth of cultural and social service organizations. It also has an industrial and financial base which is, possibly, unmatched by any city its size in our land, and which extends its reach around the globe. It has cohesive and progressive civic and business leadership. Hartfm:d is a prototypical modern, American city, with all the dynamism and all the problems that implies. What does this mean for Trinity? First, it means that as one of the city's responsible citizens, we bear a heavy obligation. Our city, like many others, has become an arbitrary, political enclave within a much larger economic region. It is a crossroads where the b lind market forces of migration and investment intersect~ sometimes churning eddies of poverty and decay. No more than King Canute of o ld can Trinity alone halt these tides. But we will continue to work' with our nearby sister institutions to help those around us improve this neighborhood. We will encourage our own facu lty and staff members to make their homes near the College. And we will continue to welcome our neighbors to this campus. We are pleased that our films, our concerts, and our open spaces provide a release ftom the compression of urban life for so many of them. Perhaps most important of all, we will make sure that our doors are open to committed Hartford students of all ages and backgrounds. As a college in the city, we have a special reason to seek a student body which reflects the diversity around us. We know already that some of our finest students are older men and women who have returned to college, and we are eager to have more of them among us. Hartford, in turn, enriches Trinity. We have already extended our academic scope by consortia! arrangements and joint programs with sister institutions. I hope we can increase these connections. We do not, for instance, maintain professional schools of medicine, law, or business. But I would like to see more opportunities for our students to interact with local institutions in these fields. They would be able to test their vocational interests at first hand, and they might bring some of the questions, and even the perceptions, developed in study on this campus to bear on the important social and cultural issues confronted by these professions. Beyond these academic arrangements, we benefit from our location in other ways. Gifted people from many sectors of the community visit our campus and contribute to our intellectual life. Students attend cultural events in the city and pursue internships in business, government, and social service agencies. The hospitals, the museums, the historical foundations all make Hartford an unusual place, and we at Trinity hope to draw even more fully on these bountiful resources. But our location can mean more to us, even, than this. As a college community committed to the liberal arts and sciences, we are concerned, as I have said, with man's basic questions about himself and his na-

tural and social world. These questions are ageless, but they arise in new forms, and new contexts. Art forms may lose their immediate power to move us, and new ones must be created. Our economic and political structures develop flaws. The particular pressures which social institutions exert on us within them may gradually shift. Our awareness of these questions is sharpened and deepened by intense study of the past, but we must ultimately try to find our own answers within the world as it is today. And the world's structures have become intricate and accident-prone. Without them life would be vicious and frightening, but events are moving fast. Science and technology expand exponentially, and
they hook men, and even nations, together in a fragile fabric of interdependency. The world threatens to outrun the institutions and the value systems we have evolved for coping with it. I have mentioned our cities. They are centers of culture and commerce. Opportunity, excitement, and challenge are to be found there. But some have become casualties in the political and social marketplace. There are areas that no longer sustain human life in a mode we can accept. Their people are like jalopies, stalled on the expressways of American life. Most of us dash by, hardly aware of them except when they interrupt the smooth flow of traffic and we suddenly realize that not all Americans are really
Ismene are still alive. Antigone's courage and Ismene's loyalty are still intact. But they may be living out their drama in a Hartford insurance com-Âˇ pany. Perhaps they are middle managers, and Creon a group vice president! We do several things at Trinity. We provide rigorous training in the basic skills of reading, reasoning, calculating, and communicating. We help students come up to speed with the rapid flow of learning in the natural and social sciences. But I hope it is not pretentious to say we are also joined in a task which has engaged our race since before Antigone and which will continue long beyond any of us. We are undertaking, through rediscovery and invention, to help construct a set of values and a system of social arrangements which will let men and women live at peace with nature, with others, and with themselves. This work is nothing less than sharing, in ever so modest a way, in the creation of a way of life, proper for our times. lt is hardly a new task, nor is it an isolated or abstract one. As it draws on the finest insights of the past it must also accord with the most intractable realities of the present. We are less like abstract painters than architects, hoping to achieve a felicitous style, but constrained by the limitations of received means and materials. For Trinity, the remarkable, old, but very contemporary, city around us is the setting in which this creative process proceeds. Hartford is our laboratory. This gives us a unique, as well as significant, future. I have said little about the severe problems which confront higher education. I know they exist, and I shall probably spend much of my time in the next few years wrestling with them. But I am confident of this College's future. We have many opportunities, provided by a bountiful past, generous supporters, and a hospitable, stimulating setting. We are engaged in work that has no end and that is truly essential to us aU as human men and women. I have started with Sophocles, so let me finish with a few lines from his description of man and his work:

part of our fast-moving, fine-tuned system. Life is not always easy for those in the new cars either. As Americans we are immensely privileged. But the expressways are fast and crowded. We must blend our lives into the large, structured organizations in which most of us work in carefully formalized ways and with split-second timing. As human beings we still seek affection, and dignity, and purpose, but we must seek them on the larger and more complex stage that modern technology and business and government have created. The issues with which we concern ourselves are perennial, but the ~etting in which they take form is complex, global, and, for us Americans at least, largely urban. After more than two thousand years we are still struggling with the individual's response to harsh and arbitrary authority. Our sisters Antigone and
Wonders are many on earth, and the greatest of these Is man, who rides the ocean and takes his way Through the deeps, through wind-swept valleys of perilous seas That surge and sway. The use of language, the wind-swift motion of brain He learnt; found out the laws of living together In cities, building him shelter against the rain And wintry weather. There is nothing beyond his power. His subtlety Meeteth all chance, all danger conquereth.
We at Trinity are privileged indeed. We can devote ourselves single-mindedly to the questions men and women have alway found most demanding and most exciting. We can draw insights from the city around us and test our perceptions against the daily realities that flow through its streets. Let us be grateful for our opportunities and find delight in work before us .â€˘

The Loc~wood Years
A look back at his
heodore D. Lockwood retired last June as the fifteenth president of Trinity College after nearly thirteen years in office. The son of a Trinity professor of engineering, Lockwood enrolled at the College in 1942 and, with time out for military service, graduated as valedictorian of the Class of 1948. He earned his doctorate in European history from Princeton University in 19 52, and began his teaching career at Dartmouth College. After holding faculty and administrative posts at Juniata College, MIT, and Concord College, he was named dean of the faculty and provost of Union College in 1964. Four years later, he succeeded Albert C. Jacobs as president of Trinity College.
During Lockwood's tenure, Trinity achieved an impressive record of fiscal stability and progress. The College operated on a balanced budget, and the endowment grew steadily. The undergraduate enrollment climbed from 1,250 to its current level of 1,700, and women were admitted to the undergraduate program. Applications for admission rose by more than fifty perce,nt, the College established a campus in Rome, Italy, and Trinity strengthened its ties with local educational institutions, as well as increasing its involvement in the city of Hartford. A nationally recognized spokesman for liberal arts education, Lockwood was chairman of the Association of American Colleges in 1976-1977, the Washington-based
organization of liberal arts colleges and universities that deals with substantive issues in higher education. He continues his affiliati;n with AAC, and is currently engaged in a three-year review of the baccalaureate degree in the United States. . In September, 1982, a new college- the United World College of the American West - will open in Montezuma, New Mexico, with Theodore Lockwood at the helm. The new school, which will enroll students from some forty countries in a concentrated, two-year program, is part of an international effort, started by Lord Mount-
batten of Great Britain, to improve understanding among the peoples of the world. The Lockwoods moved to New Mexico last October to begin preparations for the College's opening next fall. They have returned to the Trinity campus several times including the inauguration of President English, and for the annual holiday party in December. On one of those occasions, Kathy Frederick, associate editor for the Reporter, sat down with Ted Lockwood for an informal conversation about higher education and his years at Trinity. Below are edited excerpts of that conversation.
KF: In your last annual report, you cited a recent statement prepared at the College, "While Trinity recognizes students' legitimate career concerns, it wishes to prepare its graduates to lead examined and productive lives, not just to make a living. Thus, it tries not only to impart knowledge and skills but also to nurture such qualities of mind and character as curiosity, critical acumen, discerning judgment, ethical awareness and the ability to confront the unfamiliar with confidence." How well do you think higher education is doing at this task? How well is Trinity doing?
most likely to achieve these ends in an institute which has a clear sense of direction. I think Trinity, precisely because it has a limited horizon, has a better chance of doing this than some other places. Trinity isn't involved in 28 graduate departments leading to the Ph.D. It is not large by national standards. It has always had a commitment, as we said in 1968, "to think significantly about matters that count intellectually." This, in my judgment we do quite well ... KF: To shift gears a bit, I know that you spend a good deal of time in Washington, and I'wonder what you are hearing about the impact of federal cuts in student financial aid. What will these reductions mean and how are we going to have to deal with them?
TDL: I think higher education is correctly concerned about its ability to fulfill those objectives. There has been a great deal of commentary to the effect that we are experiencing a "crisis,'' particularly in undergraduate education. When people speak about the inadequacy or lack of direction in undergraduate programs, they generally are referring to there not being a sense of values, a set of objectives such as the ones you mentioned. They feel the curriculum is still too much of a supermarket at which students choose what they want and, most recently, seem preoccupied with their professional objectives. The study I am now engaged in for the Association of American Colleges is explicitly directed to the issue of whether we can articulate a set of broad assumptions about the content and goals of undergraduate education. I would make the following observation: It seems to me that education is probably as self-critical as any enterprise in the world. We are seldom satisfied with what we do. We tend to underestimate the progress we've made - and I think that is real progress. We've sorted out much of what we experimented with ten or fifteen years ago, and I think we've discarded those things that were loose-jointed, poorly conceived, and hastily contrived. We had tried all sorts of new, so-called "experiential learning" and discovered that some of those things were substantial and some kind of flimsy. We've overcome the preoccupation with relevancy (always a regrettable word!) to which we became wedded in the late sixties and early seventies. I think we now realize that what is relevant is what has long-term value. The other aspect of the question you raise is, of course, whether we have found ways to reassess ourselves and have learned how to convey ethical sensitivity, or real judgmental acumen. Probably you're
TDL: No one with whom I've talked knows the answers, and I don't either. Clearly, the burden will fall, initially, on the states and, from what I've observed, the states are not prepared to make substantial increases in scholarship programs because they're under pressure to keep up the level of spending for the public institutions of higher education. The problem for an institution like Trinity is that when you turn to the traditional philanthropic sources you find that most foundations do not find financial aid an attractive use for their funds. The corporations are under tremendous pressure to pick up a host of community services that are suffering reductions in federal expenditures; I can't imagine much more will come from these traditional private sources of philanthropic support. As I said before I retired, an institution like Trinity will have to look at incorporating a job component within its educational program to offset the damage caused by a reduction of federal scholarship funds. That might mean an expansion of the internship concept in the direction of cooperative education, so that students can pay more of their own way. What's the alternative? The alternative is to have a higher and higher percentage of full-paying students, which conflicts with the desire for diversity. Our conviction has always been that students ought to be able to come to Trinity on the basis of their ability, not their financial solvency. This is an immense problem which, at this point, has very few solutions. I do not see the public supporting a swing back to large federal investments in higher education which we knew, say, five years ago.
Inauguration Day, 1968
Dealing with a student protest, 1970
KF: Ted, you were president of Trinity during three distinct periods: the late sixties and early seventies, which was certainly a time with a set of characteristics we all know quite well; the mid-seventies, which was a kind of "mellow" era; and the late seventies, when a host of troublesome problems began to emerge for higher education, such as unfavorable demographic trends and the double spectre of inflation and .declining financial support. Which were the best years for you - the happiest, the most satisfying?
TDL: That's almost a preposterous question! Some of us look back to the sixties as the most fascinating time. Now, I didn't say the happiest. As I've said on other occasions, back then, the priorities were on your desk in the morning. We probably had to improvise more than at any other time I've ever known in higher education. I think some of us enjoyed the challenge of trying to figure out how to get through the day or the next few days. It was exciting. You got feedback more rapidly than at a time when, say, you're spending a month doing long-range planning, and you have to wait five years to see if you were right. [In the sixties], you didn't do long-range planning: you were just trying to identify the [immediate] issues and do something about them. In a sense, that had a pretty high reward ratio. I think the happiest periods were when we got beyond Cambodia in May, 1970 and we knew that there was some kind of change coming and people wanted to see things happen on campus - to make sure that coeducation succeeded, that the new
curriculum sorted out its various options. Despite financial pressures, we were pretty confident that we could try a lot of new things, whether it was developing a community action program or tackling the minority issue. I think those were very pleasant days. People were working together in addressing some long-range issue and making some things change. I particularly remember one of the most interesting discussions was the review of independent study carried out by Howard DeLong's [professor of philosophy] committee. The report was given up in the Washington Room and it was one of those moments when everyone seemed intent on improving the independent study option, cleaning up the abuses and providing a more stable approach. When that atmosphere exists, you can feel pretty good about the whole enterprise. I think a certain civility had returned to the campus that had not been present during the previous four or five years. And that just made life more pleasant for all of us! From the point of view of someone looking at an institution and trying to figure out which directions are best to go in, and also looking at the national educational scene, I still regard the period of the late seventies as particularly intriguing. You really had to begin to plan and plan carefully, to think fairly broadly about what the place of a liberal arts college like Trinity would be in the next路 decade. That was the period when we did a lot of the planning that we've been trying to execute and which I've left for Jim [English] in an unfinished condition. It's a lot of fun to look back and realize that you had a game plan and that things went sort of according to that
With Trinity's first women graduates, 1970 (left); With predecessors G. Keith Funston and Albert C. Jacobs, 1971
plan, and that you've got the organization in a position you hope will permit it to move along fairly securely and imaginatively. So, the [planning] period was also a lot of fun, but it's so difficult to compare that with the excitement of the late sixties where your wits were constantly being taxed. KF: What do you feel were your greatest accomplishments at Trinity, and what were your greatest disappointments?
TDL: Ah, the inevitable question. I can identify the successes, or achievements very quickly, I think: first, the ease with which we became coeducational; second, although I did not design the new curriculum, I came in at a point where I could make a few suggestions and provide the difference in the curriculum being implemented very quickly. Getting hold of the financial structure of Trinity was an important achievement. It was necessary, uninspiring in some sense, but nonetheless, provided the foundation upon which we could then build other things. I also feel that we moved into the [Hartford] community, maybe a little later than we should have, but at least we got at the issue of our relationship with both our immediate neighborhood and our sister institutions. There were also important changes in the attitude of the institution toward the student body. We got rid of parietals. What we were trying to do in philosophical terms was to shift our responsibility from guardianship or being wardens, to the students themselves, allowing them to assume a mature position on campus. One of the disappointments is that we have not
made as much progress on that transfer of responsibility to students as I had hoped. I feel that Trinity students have yet to develop a life of their own that is more independent of the institution ... I have always been disappointed that we have not been able to generate concern about the international situation [among students]. I find that the students I'm working with now [in setting up United World College] are so articulate and take so much initiative in developing programs, inviting lecturers to talk with them about "What to do in the Middle East." Many of these are foreign students, but some are Americans. The typical student [at places like Trinity] generate a lot of activity, but are not quite as responsive to what is happening in the world ... they still depend on us to provide the intellectual leadership and are not self-sufficient in this regard. A second disappointment is, obviously, our inability to have as many minority students as we all hoped to attract to Trinity. A third area of disappointment has been our "satisfaction" with what we are doing academically now. Obviously, the program is very good at Trinity . .. but no matter how you modify an individual course to make it better you have to keep an environment alive which encourages [the faculty] to find better ways to achieve its goals academically. And I guess I felt increasingly that I wasn't finding the way to stimulate that discussion. I would add one more thought ... One of the things that was the greatest fun was the individualized degree program. That was one where I think the facu lty very kindly indulged me when we got it started, and it's proved to be a delightful addition to
our program. I was disappointed initially because I never thought it would get off the ground ... now the enrollments are way up there. KF: How about our fund raising over the past thir~ teen years?
TDL: Well, you know, in 1970 when Ward Curran [professor of economics] was special assistant to me, we projected that if we could have a $50 million en~ dowment by 1980, we'd be in great shape. And we didn't think we'd do it, but we're almost there. And so, in a sense, that's one that you can flip either way. You can say it's too bad we don't have more money, but if you look back, you can see we haven't done that badly. Thanks to the efforts of a whole host of people. KF: In your annual report, you talked about the distrust that is permeating the academy. Is that a
source of disappointment for you? TDL: That's a hard question. I would respond by saying that it's a product of the times. I think the ad~ justments we're going through, the contractions, make the prospects for higher education obviously not as encouraging as they were in the sixties. The real disappointment is that we don't look at things from a different perspective. It's probably the first time since the second World War that colleges have had a change to say, "All right, we pretty well know where we are and what our limits are and what the agenda is for the next decade. Let's figure out how to do it most effectively. We won't be growing, proba~ bly; we're going to be battling inflation and working harder to get good students." Rather than regard it as an interesting challenge in which we can at least identify the variables we'll be dealing with far better than we could in the fifties, sixties or seventies, we

tend to say, "Oh gosh, isn't it too bad it isn't like it was ... " Part of it is that we are worried about the academic profession, as faculties get older and the "young blood" isn't getting work. And part of it is that there are other issues of national importance. People just ~ren't as interested in what's happening in higher education as they are in medical costs or what's going to happen to Social Security, or the inflation rate, or whether they're going to have enough money to buy a house. KF: Could you elaborate a little bit on what is happening in the academic profession, especially in the arts and humanities? I know there is growing concern that the best people aren't going into the academy anymore because there's nothing to go in to - , no jobs. What do you think that means to the disciplines, and to the culture?
TDL: Let's look at it historically. There have been low points in education before. Most of us have never known them because we didn't start teaching until after the second World War. Ask anyone who was there in the thirties when many predicted that the arts would go under - they were just a luxury. It was an unpromising period for a great many disciplines. We forget all that, and fail to see that what we're going through now is a repeat. I'm less worried about the arts than the humanities. I think the public interest in the fate of the arts ... is probably going to keep them in good condition. As people live longer they will turn more to the arts, not just as therapy. We are beginning to believe our own rhetoric about the arts as an element that enhances and 路 enriches our lives. The humanities are, I think, a more problematic area. We tend to browbeat them in a way that is

probably unfair. We say, "they are not speaking to the condition of youth today" or "they're not solving national problems." The humanities never solved national problems and when you ask that they do that, they'll fail the test. Now clearly, there have been times in history when humanists have spoken very effectively in an engaging way on important human issues. I think of the WP A theatre during the thirties. The humanists were
out of jobs including the. playwrights and the artists, and they created a very pertinent theatre that people felt did address the issues. I suspect that maybe we have not hit bottom yet with regard to the [crisis of confidence] in the humanities. People may ultimately turn once again to the humanities for some answers, but right now our preoccupation tends to be with matters that the humanities cannot address explicitly. â€˘
Tributes from Friends and Colleagues "Ted was a wonderful friend, colleague and leader of all higher education. Whatever the short-run pressures and harassments, Ted kept his eye on the long-run values and objectives of liberal education. He helped the rest of us to keep our sights raised, too. I also envy and admire Ted's energetic and enthusiastic ability in taking on the great challenge of founding and leading the new United World College of the American West." Kingman Brewster President, Yale University, 1963-1977
"President Lockwood - extraordinarily able as an administrator, academician and trekker - as well as being a loyal and compassionate friend of Trinity."
"Ted Lockwood assumed the presidency in turbulent times. He was captain of a ship off Hatteras in a hurricane. For the moment, the storm has slackened. He refitted the ship for the needs of today, and leaves a proven sea-worthy vessel for use by the collegiate corpus and for society." Dr. ]. Wendell Burger ]. Pierpont Morgan Professor of Biology, Emeritus Trinity College
"Ted Lockwood has a keen sense of how the health of individual institutions is dependent upon the quality of the larger enterprise of higher education. While leading Trinity with distinction, he also provided leadership on a regional and national basis." John W. Chandler
George W.B. Starkey, M.D. Chairman, Board of Trustees Trinity College
"Ted Lockwood's longstanding active partlopation in the affairs of the Association of American Colleges attests to his deep concern for liberal learning in American society, as well as on the campus ofTrinity College. As director, chairman of the board, and chairman of the search committee for a new president of the Association, he was a source of inspiration and wise counsel during a unique period of transition and uncertainty. He now continues to help as a special consultant to a major project on redefining the meaning and purpose of baccalaureate degrees ... " Mark H. Curtis President, Association of American Colleges
"What especially strikes anyone who knows Ted well, as I have known him for over fifteen years, is his irrepressible optimism, his enthusiasm about the possibilities inherent in people and in projects, happily tempered by a firm sense of principle and by good sense." Dr. Harold C. Martin Charles A Dana Professor of the Humanities Trinity College President, Union College, 1965-1974
President, Williams College
"Ted Lockwood had no confidence in Murphy's Law, even though the observations upon which it was based were probably Âˇgathered in a college president's office. He brought to his work an ironic bent and a reservoir of stamina that enabled him to detach from day-to-day demands, to anticipate the future, and to keep his mind on the main purposes of the College. In his years as president, he led and guided Trinity through a succession of changes in governance, in curriculum, in student life, in faculty development, and in relations with other strong institutions that gave great credibility to his conviction that a Trinity education was among the very finest. Thomas A . Smith Vice President, Trinity College
"On the Connecticut General board of directors we have sought a diversity of background and experience so that the policies of the Company could be tested against a range of perspectives. Ted Lockwood did an especially fine job of bringing to our work his extensive experience in education and public affairs. To our delight he also had a good head for business, which made his observations particularly helpful." Henry R. Roberts Former Presiding Director of Connecticut General Corporation

WOMEN'S SOCCER============== It was an exciting autumn for Trinity women's soccer. The Bantams danced through their first nine games without a loss, and ended their regular season at 9-1. This earned them a berth in the New England Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament, held at Williams. There the Trinity women lost a heartbreaker in double overtime, 2-1 to Tufts. The 9-2 season began with a similar thriller, as a talented Trinity squad upended Smith 3-2 in overtime. For the next six weeks it all went the way of the Bantams, as Trinity swept eight in a row; five of them by shutouts. Sophomore Karen Orczyk was the big scorer for Trinity in those early games. She ended the season with 9 goals and 4 assists, to take the team scoring honors. Close behind her, after rebounding from an early injury, was classmate Cynthia Hunter, who closed out the 1981 campaign with 10 goals and 2 assists. Another young player, freshman Jeanne Mannes, did fine work in goal. A number of experienced veterans also lent their abilities to the team's success. Senior tri-captains Polly Lavery, Minnie Mahoney, and Terry Samdperil provided strong leadership. Lavery was especially outstanding from her fullback position. The Trinity defense allowed less than one goal per game, and Lavery was named Most Valuable Player for the second year in a row. Juniors Sally Larkin and Dana Anderson will cocaptain the team next fall. Both provided needed stability to the team. Along with freshman Criss

Ley decker and sophomore Randi Stempler, they proved adept at playmaking. Senior Annie Martin set a Trinity single season record with five assists. Three Bantams were selected to the 1981 Oiv. II-III All-New England women's soccer team, chosen by the N.E. Women's Soccer Association. Freshman fullback Prudence Horne joined captain Lavery on the All-N.E. defense, while Orczyk was named to the All-N.E. attack. Head coach Karen Erlandson was pleased with this best-ever women's soccer season on the Summit. With seventeen veterans returning next fall, it looks as though her 1981 team has begun a tradition that will last for some time to come.
FOOTBALL=============== It began with disappointment, but it ended with a glorious photo finish. The 1981 Trinity football team, defending New England Oiv. III champions, lost a . quarterback and a game on opening day, to the Jumbos of Tufts. The quarterback fell in the first ten minutes of play, as All-New England field general Pete Martin suffered a broken jaw and went "out for the season:." The game was lost in the last two minutes, as Tufts quarterback Dave Piermarini took charge of a 95-yard march, completing a pass to Bob Sameski for the winning score in the waning moments of the contest. Freshman quarterback Joe Shield took over the team, and led the Bantams to four straight victories, before losing to Amherst, the eventual Little Three champs. But against Wesleyan, with Trinity trailing 24-13, it was senior Pete Martin who came off the bench in the fourth quarter, to run for one score, and to throw the wining TO pass with just 1:03 left to play; Trinity 25 - Wesleyan 24. It was a season of accomplishment for many seniors. Captain Bill Schaufler earned MVP and Defensive Player-of-the-Year honors. The linebacker and punter broke the Trinity record for career solo

BANTAM BOOTER Karen Rodgers scored four goals for Trinity's best-ever women's varsity soccer team.
tackles originally set by Roger LeClerc '60, chalking up 185 in three seasons of full~time duty, as well as registering 137 punts, the second highest total in Trinity history. Offensively, seniors Bill Holden and Bob Reading closed out their Bantam careers in style. Reading garnered 29 catches for 514 yards and 4 TO, while Holden became only the fourth Trinity player to rush for better than 2,000 yards on his career. Senior offensive guard Steve LaFortune became the first~ever three~time recipient of Trinity's Dan Jessee Blocking Award, given to the team's finest blocking lineman. LaFortune was also chosen by a poll of N .E. coaches to receive the John J. Nolan, Jr. Memorial Award as the region's outstanding small college lineman. Other seniors closed out terrific careers. Ben Baron was a fine tight end, John Josel and Justin George anchored the "0" line, Joe Penella did yeoman work at middle guard, Peter Smialek and Glenn McLellan held down the defensive tackle slots, Mike Tucci col~ lected an interception in his final game: the list is endless.
Don Miller's team has much to look forward to. Joe Shield will step in to the starting QB spot next fall with practically a full season's experience behind him. Tim MeN amara, who caught the winning TO pass against Wesleyan, will be there. Tom Clemmen~ son (one of the nation's leading kick~returners and one .of New England's leading scorers), and Mike Elia (20 career TO) will run out of the backfield. Kevin Higgins and Dom Rapini will hold down the line. A great deal of rebuilding will have to be accomplished on defense, but no more so than the Bantam coach~ ing staff contemplated going into this autumn's cam~ paign. No longer the "Cinderella Bants" of 1980, Trinity football, 22~ 10 in the last four seasons, with two N .E. small college championships and three top ten Lambert Bowl ratings, is a program to be reckon~ ed with in New England Div. III circles.
FIELD HOCKEY===:===:===:===:====: The most successful fall sports program on the Summit (38~6~4 over the last four years), maintained its standard of excellence in 1981, keyed by the ef~ forts of a young, aggressive group of players. Senior Parsons Witbeck and Lisa Nolen were part of a defense that allowed less than a goal a game, but the leading scorers, the All~Sta:r goalie, and the Most Valuable Player from Trinity's 10~2~2 team in 1981 are all underclassmen, and they will all be back again in 1982. Freshmen Susie Cutler (13 goals) and Kat Castle (7 assists) led the Bantams in scoring. Sophomore Amy Waugh, who was the mainstay of Trinity's stellar defense, was named MVP. Junior Anne Collins already holds all the season and career records for a Trinity field hockey goaltender. The season began with wins over Connecticut Col~ lege and Central Connecticut. In an historical meet~ ing, the Trinity field hockey team hosted a visiting eleven from England's Durham University, and the Bantams suffered their first loss of the campaign. Trinity went 8~ 1~ 2 for the rest of the fall, including an unbeaten 2~0~ 1 performance at the North East Field Hockey Association Tournament, where a record nine Trinity players were named to North East All~Star berths. Coach Robin Sheppard originally saw 1981 as a building year. It may well have been, but if 10~2-2 is how her team performs under construction, just wait until the building is complete.

COMEBACK KING! Senior Pete Martin, sidelined for seven games with a broken jaw, came off the bench in the fourth quarter to end his Trinity career with a last-minute TD pass, as Trinity beat Wesleyan 25-24.
The Trinity Waterpolo team, led by the high scor~ ing of co~captains Mike Merin and Dave Pike, and by the MVP goaltending performance of Lincoln Collins, went 9~7~2 on their regular season, and 3~0 in the New England tournament, to take their se~ cond N.E. Oiv. II~III title in three years. Merin, who ended his career as one of the top five scorers in Trinity W aterpolo history, tallied 49 goals and 27 assists in 1981. Collins set Trinity single

season (6. 7) and career (7 .4) records for fewest goals allowed. Ed Kaplan led the Ducks with 31 assists. Trinity went on to the Easterns after winning the N .E. crown, but they dropped a pair of games there. They ended their overall 1981 season with a 12-9-2 record. Four Trinity players were named to the Div. II-III All-New England teams. Merin, Pike, and Collins were first team selections, while Chip Lake was chosen for the second team. It was the second consecutive All-New England honor for both Merin and Lake.

cer team. Simons headed up a superlative defense, on an otherwise mediocre 2~8~2 team. Although the Bantams gave up less than two goals an outing, the young squad lacked any serious scoring threat to give the offense needed punch. Nine of Trinity's games were either tied or were decided by a single goal margin. Still, coach Robie Shults is optimistic about the prospects for 1982. Only two seniors are graduating, and with his goalie and fine defense intact, and with virtually every one of his starters back, he hopes for a marked improvement next fall.

Books THE LUCIFER KEY By Malcolm C. MacPherson '65 (New York: Elsevier-Dutton Publishing Co., 1981; $13.95)
Reviewed by Beatrice C. and Andrew G. De Rocco
The Lucifer Key, while not a murder mystery, has its share, including the first microwave murder we've encountered. Nor is it a novel of suspense, for the intentions of its characters never play a central role and, indeed, very little in the way of character development takes place. What is it then? Well, first of all, it's a fast-paced and often gripping story about the aftermath of an idea - realized through the course of the novel - born to a brilliant mathematician for whom a night with the computer is as a Viennese Ball. Dreadfully young and hopelessly able, he discovers a scheme - "the combination" - for invading the logic and memory of linked computers, and subverting their programmed intentions. In particular, he. describes and demonstrates, to the horror of a nicely-portrayed Pentagon panjandrum, that his very own defense network is vulnerable. The point having been made, it's only natural that everyone would want the combination - the Soviets, who dispatch their most able computer scientist to America and place him under the care of a carefully disguised agent; the mogul of a shaky computer enterprise who needs, and quickly, a competitive edge; even a pioneering computer genius and entrepreneur, now in retirement, whose Beacon Hill basement is outfitted with an elaborate state-of-the-art array of corpputers and whose purpose, somewhat as a Luddite's, is to spread caution concerning the dangers of debasing his singular invention. The cast of characters is far richer of course; and' where would we be without romance, nicely contrived between the Beacon Hill granddaughter and our "l'enfant terrible," Stark Rousseau?
Whether we are to regard Rousseau as Lucifer and his key as "the combination" is not clear, but as outraged as the establishment becomes at his reckless, often intemperate behavior, he is never expelled from whatever heavens he enters, and we suspect neither Wormwood nor Screwtape would find him a congenial ally. One of the more interesting chapters in Christopher Evans' account of the Computer Revolution, The Micro Millennium, is entitled "Of Money and Crime," and recounts the story of how
banks and other counting houses first recognized and then came to employ computers to a fare-thee-well. It began, innocently enough, with machine-readable recognition checks and step by step has moved towards the replacement of physical money by electronic money - now credit (debit) cards and in time intelligence transfer from one database to another without the intervention of "plastic promissory notes." In one of the more haunting sequences, MacPherson has Douglas Thornton, the eminence grise of the computer world, interfere with the stock exchange- it simply goes beserk: Rotomat, from 9 to 125 in a matter of minutes; LTW losing 16 points in as many minutes on the heels of single purchase of fifty thousand shares - and disrupt as well the computer-based course of the Bank of America and Chase Manhattan. Thornton, too, has a strategy for intervention; one which is met in each insta-nce with an apologetic "It's got to be a software mistake; we'll have it cleared up in a day or so." This was the catastrophe that Thornton hoped would sober society, stem its headlong plunge into a computer-dominated age. Money was not serious, he reasoned, and people would recover their losses and their sanity. And, in some respects, that is also MacPherson's hidden message. Stripped of its fascination with the technical details of computer architecture and software, stripped of the intrigue, stripped of glamour brought to it by its characters and their adventures, The Lucifer Key is a serious appeal for recognition ari.d for reason. We cannot anymore halt the advent of an "intelligent society" than could our antecedents halt the Industrial Revolution, but we may yet have a chance to shape that future, and MacPherson's novel, lively and technically authentic, is the sort of homework that both gives pause and refreshes.

Quad Wranfles I
n coming weeks, the Reagan Administration is expected to recommend massive cuts in federal student aid programs. Though specific figures are not available at this writing, the President's budget proposals are expected to involve the following: • Cuts in total federal spending for need-based student aid 46 percent below current levels, and 56 percent below ceilings established last August; • A reduction of about 45 percent from FY 1981 levels for Pell Grants, aimed at the most needy; • Elimination of Campus-based programs (Supplemental Grants, Direct Loans and State Student Incentive Grants), along with a 27-percent cut in College Work-Study funds; • Major changes in the Guaranteed Student Loan program, including doubling the origination fee from 5 to 10 percent; requiring borrowers to pay market interest rates two years after entering repayment; and removing graduate and professional students from the GSL program. Cuts of this magnitude, according to the American Council of Education, would remove over one million students from Pell Grants and eliminate another 1.3 million awards under the Campus-based programs. Another study estimates that the proposed reductions will quadruple the unmet need of students in independent colleges next year; by 1985-86, that unmet need will go up sevenfold. These proposals could not come at a more disruptive time. Most colleges are now struggling with next year's budgets, and financial aid officers are in the midst of allocating funds for prospective freshmen without any clear signals from Washington on the shape of the 1983 appropriation. Trinity, like most independent colleges, is preparing for the worst. It seems likely that the College will have to allocate about $1 million from current operating revenues for financial aid next year. This sum represents an increase of $250,000 from operating funds used during the current year; $500,000 over a year ago. The average loan required of all needy students is expected to rise from $1,250 to $1,7 50. There will also be less flexibility in the aid available, and many students will face more stringent borrowing limits. At present, 30 percent of Trinity students receive financial aid. Some 48 percent of the candidates for admission next fall, however, are requesting aid, up from 42 percent last year. Clearly, this trend, along with the federal cutbacks and the ever-present impact of inflation, will mean higher tuition bills next fall.
The point is not that colleges wear the white hats and the feds wear the black ones. Admittedly, some aid programs, like the GSL, have been subject to abuses by the users. And, many parents have not felt obligated to assist with their children's higher education expenses, thereby transferring the burden to colleges and taxpayers. But, such major policy shifts should be made gradually, not all at once, so that institutions and individuals can adjust their resources over the long haul instead of overnight. In short, higher education should not be asked to go beyond shouldering its "fair share" of our nation's economic recovery. Th,e President's current proposals go far beyond any reasonable measure of fairness. If the Administration's budget knife is to be dulled this spring, some intense lobbying is in order. Alumni, parents and students should contact their senators and representatives by phone or letter urging maximum funding for the Pell Grants and Campus-based aid programs. Letters to President Reagan are also encouraged, pointing out that higher education is an investment and not merely an expense. (College graduates, by virtue of their higher income, will more than repay the assistance they have received by the additional taxes they can be expected to pay in the future.) Contacts with key senators on education-related committees are also effective; names of these individuals and their Washington, D.C. telephones are listed below. Finally, parents and students with questions about their aid status at Trinity are asked to contact the financial aid office at the College immediately (203-527-3151, Ext. 365). Even in these uncertain times, many of the problems involving student aid can be minimized by prompt and open communication between the ~ollege and its constituents. WLC

The Very Rev. PAUL ROBERTS celebrated his 94th birthday in August and spent the day before as guest preacher at
"EVVY" EVISON celebrated his 89th birthday last spring and two days thereafter flew to California with his daughter to visit his son. Just before returning home, Evvy spent the evening with his first "big boss" in the National Park Service - Horace Albright, who received the President's Medal of Freedom in December, 1980.

No news from 1916 since the Half-Century Club dinner in June. However, I was pleased to hear from JOE EHLERS '14, whom most of you must remember. Joe has traveled to more strange places in the world than Gulliver. He enclosed a fullpage story from the Louisville Courier Journal with a picture described as follows: "Joseph Ehlers has traveled to many 路places in the world and has I?ict~es to prove it. Here he is shown floatmg m a 'gufa,' a boat of reeds, on the Euphrates River." His address: Joseph H. Ehlers, 4000 Cathedral Avenue, 849B, Washington, D.C. 10016. I also was happy to get an equally interesting letter from HERB EVISON '12, who apparently has traveled the world even as much. Note this excerpt: "I suppose that Shirley and I in !he course of our travels in Europe and Afnca and the West Indies and Mexico have been in more churches than most anybody you know. We even were present at a Good Friday service in Notre Dame back in '59. But the Trinity Chapel needs take second place to very few of them - Chartres and Cologne, perhaps." .. What a great tribute from a loyal Tnmty man! As of this writing (10/28/81), our new president, Jim English, honora~y member of 1916 is planning a receptiOn at the Preside~t's House followed by dinner at Hamlin Hall for no other than George Ferris '16, our renowned and still actiye classmate. This dinner is to be a memonal of his endowment to the College for a professorial chair in economics. Some 80 or so friends trustees, classmates, professors and u~dergraduates will be invited, including your "Scribe" and his wife, Carol. I know we are all happy for George about this great honor to him, and I'm looking forward to seeing many of you there. Class Agent: Robert B. O'Connor

This Class Secretary's report is being penned on Sunday morning, N?vember 1, in time for the editor's deadlme for the winter edition of the Trinity Reporter and the morning after Trinity's football victory at Coast Guard Academy. This brings the season's record to date at five victories and one defeat with only the Amherst and Wesleyan games remaining to complete the season. Your SECRETARY, as for many years past has been on hand for all contests to date' and expects to be in the stands for the remaining two games. It was good to see MEL TITLE at Jessee Field and to have a short visit with him. Word from the College indicates that our 1918 Memorial Scholarship is shared by a sophomore and a freshman. A letter to our Class Agent from the sophomore contains the following paragraph: "This letter is written both as an expression of sincere appreciation and a~ explanatior: of why, from the point of view of one like myself, gifts such as yours are more than charitable or generous, but lavish in the mental and spiritual degree of awareness they promote. " In the recently received Trinity College Annual Report of Contributions 1980-81, it was good to see our class with Louisa Barber, class agent, as one of four classes with 100% participation.

Along with a few thousand others, your SECRETARY attended the ceremony of the inauguration of our new president, James F. English, Jr. Efforts to spot another member of our 1927 class in the throng were unsuccessful. Because of weather conditions, we were directed to move inside to the Ferris Center rather than on campus as planned. However, everything proceeded very smoothly. During one of the longer speeches I could not help but to speculate how it would be to be bashed on the head with Trinity's golden forty-pound mace! Together with ANDY FORRESTER, have enjoyed the home football games from our fifty-yard line seats. Just to get rid of mounting frustration, set me down and wrote a letter to the sports editor of the Hartford CO'Urant decrying the lack of coverage in the paper on Trinity sports in general and football in particular. Much to my surprise, the letter was published and ample coverage was given the following Sunday on the Williams game! Is there a possibility that the letter had anything to do with this? A casual glance at the annual alumni
giving report reveals that while 1927 fails to rank high with other classes, the "Old Guard" is still being listed as saying their "thank you" for the four years we spent on the hill from 1923 to 1927.

We start this· month's column with a note from the sun which should brighten even the dreariest of these mid-winter days. BILL ASTMAN finished second and was the first Hawaiian finisher in the an· nual "Run to the Sun" 37-mile race from sea level to the top of Haleakala volcano on Maui, HI. The volcano is over 10,000 feet high, and Bill continues to function as one of Hawaii's top long distance runners. The race took place last July. At the other corner of the country, TOM CHAPPELL and his wife Kate continue to head the very successful "Tom's of Maine" in Kennebunk, ME 04043. The Chappells began their company over 10 years ago making non-polluting commercial dairy cleaners and laundry deter· gents. Shortly afterwards they added a
whole line of personal care products, all with natural ingredients - apple shampoo, honeysuckle soap, spearmint tooth· paste, to name a few. We imagine that Tom would be happy to send you even an autographed copy of his latest catalogue if you write him at the company. We should also point out that Tom didn't send us this information; we got it elsewhere and he is not trying to get free advertising! We also heard recently from my friend, BILL ROOS, an attorney on Wall Street. Bill and Susan, daughter Jennifer, and son Casey, recently moved into a 100-year-old brownstone in Brooklyn. They write that they have their work cut out for them now! Also in the legal profession, ARNIE SCHWARTZMAN has become a partner in the firm of Estabrook, Finn and McKee in Dayton, OH. As a matter offact, as you read this, Arnie completes his first year as a partner. PETER PERHONIS writes that he stopped teaching in 1978 and joined New Playwrights Theater in Washington, D.C. as an intern in playwriting. A play of his entitled "Tomorrow's Another Day" was given a full production last May, and the theater nominated him for an N.E.A. grant in playwriting for the 1982-83 season. Finally, we hear that SANDY MASON joined the staff of the Elgin Academy as librarian last September. Since leaving Trinity, Sandy received his master's in European history from Sussex University in England, and his MLS from Kansas State College. The Elgin Academy is in Elgin, IL. We would also like to extend our condolences to Sandy on the loss of his father last fall. Please keep us posted on developments in your life, and best wishes for a pleasant remainder of the winter.

Thomas L. Safran 2928 Roscomare Rd. Los Angeles, CA 90071 WE GET LETTERS: Last August BOB TUTTLE opened his latest issue of the Reporter and was "reminded that it might be time to update the world" on his latest change . After six years as director of operations and development at Yale, he decided to make
the plunge into industry and is now a software engineer at General Electric's special purpose computer cen~er. Leaving the academic world was a hard decision, but Bob really wanted more opportunity to apply computer science to practical business and industrial problems. Being around the Connecticut shore, Bob took sailing lessons last summer and plans to purchase a boat in 1982. When he is.not by the water, he is usually near a theater in New Haven, Hartford or New York. For those of you near New Haven, Bob lives at 137 Cottage Street. ROBIN TASSINARI also wrote a lengthy note filling us in on his doings and to let us know that last August he and Anne had their fifth child, Jessica Ruth Anne. That was in addition to Kate, Sam, Ben and Meg. The Tassinaris have just finished renovating a 150-year-old farmhouse in Columbia County, NY, actually in Spencertown. The community was recently mentioned in a Newsweek cover story as one.of the ten "tempting rural havens." If anyone is in the area, Robin has invited them to just "drop in." Since it's such a small town, all one has to do is inquire at the Spencertown general store and they'll let you know where to find Robin and his family. Robin is keeping busy on the professional front as well. He is currently president of the capitol district branch of the American Psychiatric Association and is teaching at the Albany Medical College, where he was recently promoted to associate professor of psychiatry and internal medicine. As for seeing other Trinity graduates, Rob recently visited JACK SMITH (in East Haddam, CT) and his wife, Mary, and their three children, John, Matthew and Marjorie. According to Robin, they've done a beautiful job on an old house there, including utilizing a wood furnace for heating. Robin has also seen several other Trinity alums, SCOTT MACOMBER '68, who's a plastic surgeon (SANDY's brother) and JOHN THIBODEAU '68, a psychologist. MOVING OUT OF THE COUNTRY DEPARTMENT: CHARLES JACOBINI has been busy, .having recently transferred to the economic section of the American embassy in Tokyo. In June 1980 he married Dianne Slifer and a year later his wife gave birth to a baby girl, Anne Elizabeth. Off in Europe is LUKE TERRY who was recently transferred from First Boston Corporation in Philadelphia to its subsidiary merchant banking corporation in London, Credit Suisse First Boston, Ltd., where he is manager. For those of you in the area, his office is located at 22 Bishopsgate in London. Also in London, according to CHARLEY KURZ, who recently had dinner with him, is SPIROS POLEMIS. Charley reports that "aside from a few gray hairs, he appears to be doing well as a fellow shipowner who flies another flag." That's all, folks. Keep the cards and letters coming in.

Your SECRETARY has been at Trinity
almost without interruption since graduation. In January of 1972 I was appointed assistant director of admissions and remained on the admissions staff full time until August of 1977 when my son Peter was born. Oh yes, I forgot to say that I got married along the way to Karl Haberlandt, that stern German who was always "running rats" over in the psych labs. Well, now he still teaches in the psychology department, but his interests are in human intelligence, computer applications, and the general field of cognitive science. And this year we are spending his sabbatical at Carnegie Mellon University, which is why I am writing from Pittsburgh! We now have another child, Elizabeth, 15 months, and in addition to caring for the family, I am working toward completion of an M.A. in history from Trinity. Class Agent: Thomas R. DiBenedetto

GREETINGS: This goes to press three months before the issue comes out, and many of us are still job hunting. As your plans become more settled, please remember to let us know what you are doing!!!

John A. Mason 1911~ 1981
John Mason's life of service to Trinity came to an end on November 5, 1981. The following tributes, delivered at his memorial service in the Trinity Chapel on November 13, describe, in brief, the remarkable life of one of Trinity's most beloved and loyal alumni.
WE ARE GATHERED to honor a distinguished, loyal alumnus of the College. When John Andrew Mason died on November 5th, we lost a beloved friend, whose memory we will always cherish. It has been said that an institution is but the lengthened shadow of an individual, and in the history of Trinity College no one more clearly personified its spirit than its devoted son, John Mason. From the time he entered as a freshman, some 51 years ago, his life and that of his alma mater were virtually one. Litde wonder that those who knew him in his later years dubbed him with the affectionate nickname, "Mr. Trinity." As an undergraduate, he majored in the Classics, was active in the Political Science Club and St. Anthony Hall, and earned a reputation as an unyielding competitor on the squash court. After graduating with the illustrious Class of 1934, 'he attended Harvard Law School, and then entered the business world for ten years. His unflagging interest in Trinity found expression in service on the board of fellows from 1938 to 1945. In 1946, he came home to Trinity for good. For the next 25 years, he served with distinction under three presidents in a variety of administrative capacities including public relations, publications, development, and assistant to the president. In 1960, he was named alumn( secretary, a post that was to provide the ideal outlet for his boundless affection for his College. His thoughtfulness and energy, combined with a prodigious memory for names and a voluminous correspondence, endeared him to generations of alumni. One of the College's most dedicated fans, he was a reg!Jlar at 路athletic contests both home and away. He was a prime mover in the revival of crew in the early 60's and served for many years as secretary of the Friends ofT rinity Rowing. The Mason-Downs Cup, established in 1964 to honor him and Professor Norton Downs for service to rowing, is presented annually to the crew that wins one of the major
home regattas. Shortly before his retirement, the athletic department named John as an honorary coach, an appointment that included a coaching jacket, hat, and the inevitable whistle. John would rather award honors than receive them. But his exemplary service to his ColLege brought him accolades in full measure from fellow alumni and colleagues. In 1970, he was the recipient of the Trinity College Alumni Achievement Award; a year later his alma mater bestowed upon him the highest honor that can be given an alumnus, the Eigenbrodt Cup. Though he officially stepped down as alumni secretary in 1970, John Mason never retired from his life of service to Trinity. For every visible deed he accomplished in the College's behalf, there were countless other selfless contributions, largely unknown, but which typified his abiding faith in his beloved College. George W. B. Starkey Chairman of the Board of Trustees
JOHN MASON'S LOYALTY to this College was exceeded only by his loyalty to his family and friends. Each of us here today knew that loyalty and the wit and quiet affection with which it was graced. John was a New England Yankee. His accent was faintly Down East, and his speech, like his actions, was economical. His mode was practical and straightforward. He avoided needless complications and proceeded directly to the heart of any matter, but always with kindness
and consideration for the feelings of others. And the heart of any matter was almost invariably the welfare of his friends or his College. His generosity was great but unobtrusive. A fellow member of the Class of '34 tells of being denied scholarship aid during one of his years at Trinity. He really needed the money and was on the verge of leaving college when an anonymous donor stepped forward and , paid the tuition. Eventually, it was revealed that the anonymous donor was John Mason. While personally self-effacing, John could be persistent in his efforts to serve. It seemed only right to him that others should share his magnanimous objectives, and he never hesitated to ask them to lend a hand, whether to Trinity or to some student or friend who needed help. Because his work was always for the bene~ fit of others, he felt free to ask others to share in it. John was a man of religious faith, and he loved the natural world around him, especially the ocean. He often walked on the beaches of Captiva and his beloved Cape Cod and heard the water's inexorable pounding on the sand. Perhaps he found there the source of his own strength and constancy. He too was steadfast. His humor would break out and sparkle like sunlight on the water, but the force of his purpose was relentless. Neither pretentious nor fretfully self-conscious, he persisted quietly but tenaciously in his work for others. He had a lively sense of the continuity of 1ife and the ineluctable flow of successive generations. Innumerable Trinity dynasties were stored in his capacious memory: fathers, sons, granddaughters each with his or her appropriate class, occupation, and spouse! I knew John only as a retired person, but even then he seemed to have a particular affection for students and other young people. They were his special friends. He enveloped them in his affectionate concern and followed their lives with interest and cheerful confidence. Young and old, all of us who knew John give thanks for his friendship, his constancy, and his unselfish service. We extend our deepest sympathy to Phyllis and the other members of his family, whose sorrow we share. The quiet impact of his good life will long remain with us and this College. James F. English, Jr. President
Letters Editor, The Trinity Reporter:
Courant; I seem to have misplaced the one from The New York Times.)
What with our twenty-fifth reunion coming up in a few months I found myself morbidly wondering about how old hat the Class of 1957 must be these days in the eyes of the new generation of administrators of the old place.
If our new president, whose sense of tradition is to be admired, is to have any peace at all when we invade the campus in June, you had best reproduce the enclosed report in the winter or spring issue and then make damn sure it gets in the mail to us before we depart our homes for Hartford (so we'll leave our weapons at home!). You can probably get by, if space constraints are pressing, without mentioning 1967, the year we allegedly returned the lemon squeezer - in a Brink's truck of course.
Then comes the new issue of the Reporter, Yo. 12, No. 1, fall 1981 with a lead story on the "return of the lemon squeezer." Close checking of the article revealed that seven different years were mentioned (1857, 1895, 1928, 1948, 1952, 1954, and 1969) along with thirteen different classes (1857, 1859, 1861, 1863, 1864, 1865, 1896, 1904, 1916, 1929, 1930, 1955, and 1982). All this detail with no mention whatsoever of the lovely day in the spring of 1956 when the attempt of '56 to pass the lemon squeezer on to '59 was thwarted by '57. (For details see enclosed copy of news clipping from The
Worriedly yours, Dave Macisaac, '57 (The Lemon Squeezer Class) p.s. If the mail should bring letters or packages from Paul Cataldo, Bill Luke, or Paul Marion, you'd better have them closely examined before opening!

Using split-second precision timing in t.he q1anncr of the Brink's payroll vobbers, a gt·oup o[ TJ'inity Colkge juniors pulled off 1he biggest theft of the year at th~ coll<'ge Thursday. The tlwft. took place in the college chapel in full Yiew o( hundreds of. spectators ,.,.·ho had gathcrf'd tlwre to watch the tTaditional ceremony in which the senior class on Honor Day turned over to an undergraduates class a valued trophy. Outside Door
Dick Nis!;i, president of the seniot· c:lass, had just handed the the trophy ovN· to Bill Johnson, president of the freshman class. wh<>n six members of the junior class left 1heir seats in the audience, raced to the front o[ the chapel, snatchNl the trophy from the hands of Johnson and flt.>d through a side door. To uloel< pursuit, confPde1·ates secured the floors to the chapel ''lith heavy chains and padlocks, sealing ev<•ryone present inside the building. The trophy was tossPd into the hands of ot hf'l' members of the junior class who were waiting in a park<'<i ear with its motor .running. The cat· sped off with the t roplly. To further hloek pursuit, the junior class had · a truck driven across the road, stopping cars from chasing the vehicle cont ;'lining the t !·cphy.
Theft b lllgh llonor
The t r o p h y is a lemon s<'jucezet and Hs pos!'cssion is a high honor at T1•inity. It's an even higher honor, howevPr, to suec!'ssfully steal the trophy away fi'Om the class to whom it is hein~ pr<>sC'nt.ed. The junior class now will reign as "The Lemon Squeezer Class" until graduation next yPar at which time the class will tum it over to another class if someone doesn't steal it Imm them. The , !l:'mon squeC'zer. t:radifion started around 1880 when the senior class presented a lemon squeezer to the unclergJ·aduatc~ class which it helieved to be the most promising and outstand· in g. In the 1R90s, a group of undergraduatPs from a class not receiving the !P.mon squeezer that yeat·, decided to steal it a\vay from its rightful recipients. The undergraduates concealed students in the building when• the presentation was · to be mad<>. ThC'y stole the lemon squeeze•-. threw it out a window to a confedet·ate who was \Vaiting on horseback to flee with llw trophy. From that yE.>ar on, it became tlw tradition at Trinity for one of t h e classes to tt·y to steal the lemon squeezer from the class receiving it from the seniors.
