Dear Sir: Concerning the article "Heroes and Villains" by Professor Frank G. Kirkpatrick, that appeared on pp . 22-26 of the Falll982 Trinity Reporter, were an all time Board of Beasts to be chosen, Adolph Hitler would be a member, and if the "monsters" selected were permitted to elect a chairman, Hitler would have to be their choice. By millions and millions and millions of innocent deaths and other gross crimes beyond belief, H itler is the most evil indi vidual in all history. He has no competition. According to' the New Testament, Jesus threw the money changers and dove dealers out of the Temple and overturned their tables and seats. And these were just money changers and fowl merchants. I wonder what Jesus would have done with Hitler? Concerning the very special case of Adolph Hitler, Dietrich Bonhoeffer's ethics, values, and actions were perfect. They couldn't have been more so. The only thing wrong regarding Bonhoeffer was that unfortunately his plot did not succeed. Very truly yours,

D ear Editor: We were pleasantly surprised to see our picture on page 35 of the Falll982 issue of the Reporter included with the story on Homecoming. However, we were disappointed that you didn't identify us since we are both Trinity graduates. Pictured with us is our son David, at the time 8 months old, and a potential member of the class of 2004. Also with us, but not in camera range, was our other son Peter, 4, who might well be a member of the class of 2000. All four of us had a great day.

Last spring the faculty voted to reinstate a formal method of recognizing students who have excelled in their studies. In February, 104 undergraduates were named to The Faculty Honors List for work completed the previous term. To be eligible for the Faculty Honors List in any semester, a student must: 1) achieve a semester grade point average of 10.0 (A-) wit h no letter grade lower than a B - ; (2) complete a minimum of four course credits for which letter grades are earned, in courses taught or supervised by Trinity faculty; and (3) h ave no "incompletes" for the semester under consideration. The Faculty Honors List will be determined at the end of every term and a notation entered on the permanent record card of each student. The Trinity News Bureau will send notice of the honor to students' h ome town newspapers.

MILD WINTER AIDS MATHER PROJECT Relatively mild winter weather has helped the Mather Hall renovation project to move forward smoothly, so that as of March 1, work was actually slightly ahead of schedule, according to RielS. Crandall, director of buildings an d grounds. Construction for the "new" Mather began in the closing weeks of 1982, and Crandall said that Connecticut's exceptionally warm December weather was a help because t he excavation effort was not hindered by frozen ground. In addition, the footings for the new sections of th e building are about 80 percent in place, the east side being completed. Some basement exterior walls have been poured, and the next steps in t he construction process call for the placement of steel structural frames for both additions and then the pouring of concrete floors around the steel. Noting that he expects the entire project to be completed in October, Crandall said that the kitchen in Mather and the Cave operation should

be fully operational by the time the students return in A ugust and that the Cave and the student dining hall will have at least as much seating as is available now. To date, business has gone on as usual in Mather, with the exception of the noise and unexpected disruptions caused by th e construction process. Students and other members of the campus community have learned new routes to get into Mather around the form idable excavations. One group of students seized upon the opportunity created by the construction project to show their artistry and inventiveness. Informed that they were free to decorate a temporary interior wall on the east side of the dining room, the artists

happily recreated the interior of the Makris Diner, an off-campus eating place on the Berlin turnpike popular with students because it is open 24 hours.

We're relying on those alumni who have not yet made their 1982-83 contributions to send us over the top." The Parents Fund is also off to a record start. Sparked by a challenge grant from an anonymous parent, the fund is at 91 percent of its $110,000 goal. Par路 ents Fund Chairman, Lester Morse, Jr., feels that this year Trinity parents may well raise the largest amount in T rinity's history! Both the Friends ofTrinity and the

Business & Industry Funds are running substantially ahead of last year as well. According to Lloyd, "At the present rate the Annual Fund should exceed last year's record $1,019,551 mark. The . class agents, alumni and student volunteers, who worked so diligently, deserve full credit for the campaign's success."

ALUMNI DIRECTORY NEARS COMPLETION All telephone contact has been completed by Harris Publishing Company, publishers ofT rinity's official alumni directory. The purpose of the telephone

contact was to verify the information which the alumni provided on the directory questionnaires and the informa路 tion currently held in the alumni records. At the same time, the telephone representatives of the publishing company invited alumni to purchase personal copies of the directory. The directory is tentatively scheduled for release in June.

Trinity has experienced a nine percent drop in freshman class applications from last year, a pattern that appears to be common at the more selective private colleges in the Northeast; Yale is reporting a 10.9 percent drop; Wesleyan is down about 7.5 percent. To date, Trinity has received 2,922 applications for 450 places in the freshman class as opposed to 3,225 a year ago. According to Donald N. Dietrich, director of admissions, the application decline has been caused by a combination of economic factors and demography. The current recession has put the cost of aT rinity education beyond the reach of some families and has discouraged others from applying. There are also fewer 18-year-olds in the candidate pool this year because of declining birth rates that began in the late sixties. Despite the overall drop in applicants, there were some encouraging signs. The quality of the candidates appears to be "exceptional," according to Dietrich, and minority applicants are up by 30 over last year, which saw a three-fold increase in the number of minority students in the freshman class. Early decision candidates - those who have made Trinity their number one choice- are also up by more than 80 percent, indicating that Trinity may actually be increasingly attractive to many students despite fewer applications. Other characteristics of the applicant pool appear to be in line with those of previous years. About 70 percent come from five states - Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Over 40 percent of the candidates h ave indicated need for financial aid. The increase in minority applicants for the second year in a row was attributed, in part, to a successful minority admissions weekend in January that brought about 50 potential applicants

STUDENTS PROTEST FOR FACULTY MEMBER Responding to reports of a negative reappointment decision by the History Department, some 40 students staged a protest march and a two-hour sit-in in the office of Vice President Thomas Smith early in February. The subject of the controversy was Johnetta Richards, an assistant professor of history, who has taught at Trinity for the past four years and is being considered for reappointment. Professor Richards is currently the only black female on the Trinity faculty. At the outset of the sit-in, Russell Hall, president of the Trinity Coalition of Blacks (TCB), read a statement calling for Professor Richard's reappointment. Quoting "well-informed sources," the TCB statement attributed the History Department's negative decision on Professor Richards to her not being an active part of the predominantly white male social network of the department and not teaching traditional American history. In supporting Professor Richards, TCB noted "her unique way of looking at the content of her courses," and a "mode of instruction that sheds positive light on the significance of Africans in history." They also cited, "her function as a role model and advisor to black students, especially black women," as a "priceless" asset. After reading this statement, the student protestors announed their intention to stay in Smith's office until the allegations against Richards were either confirmed or denied. Professor Edward Sloan, chairman of the History Department, subsequently met with the protestors and reviewed the faculty evaluation process with the group. According to Sloan the department's evaluation of Richards will go next to the faculty Appointments and Promotions Committee for a final determination. After an hour-long discussion, which included talk about both the Richards' reappointment and other concerns about the limited minority presence at Trinity, the protestors ended their sitin. A silent march down the Long Walk and through the faculty and student

dining rooms concluded the demonstration of concern. Later in the day the Student Government Association (SGA) held an emergency session in the Cave to discuss the Richards case. With some 200 students on hand to hear the debate, the SGA representatives voted to support Richards' reappointment. A letter from the SGA to the Appointment and Promotions Committee, approved unanimously during the emergency meeting, called for: 1) a critical rev,iew of the History Department's recommendation on Richards; 2) her reappointment; and 3) some form of student representation to be introduced into the appointments and promotions procedures. At this writing the matter still rests with the Appointments and Promotions Committee; Richards is in Zimbabwe, where she is doing research supported by a junior faculty development grant.

SENIOR NAMED CONNECTICUT POET Edwin B. Lord, an English major from New York City, has been named a Connecticut Student Poet for 1983. He is one of five college students selected last fall in a state-wide competition, sponsored by the Connecticut Poetry Circuit.

When I'm in bed and motorbikes cut valleys up far hills my sister and her friend will be climbing, finding a table rock for a last look at the day over Lake Sebago .

The first pink is "Pepto-Bismal", the brown by the mountains "my mother's cedar chest". The long band of orange becomes "a bubblegum necklace", specks of yellow blink and fall as "first leaves" or "pulsars". Then colors slide over the rim of the world, their words catch on acres of blue. They rub their arms and a loon calls. I toss and think of my sister, the first star over America turning in.

The campus marked its third annual Awareness Day in February- a day without classes when students, faculty and staff discussed political, social and campus issues. As described by the sponsoring Student Government Association, "Awareness Day is a time to be creative and to share your ideas about Trinity and what it stands for with others whom you may never have talked to before." The day began with an address by Hartford Deputy Mayor Rudolph P.

CAMPUS CRIME SHOWS DECLINE Crime on the T rinity campus declined between July and December, 1982, for the third consecutive comparable period. According to Michael Schweighoffer, director of security, crime on campus was down 25 percent from the same period in 1981 and down 37 percent from 1980. Crimes against property decreased 21 percent , due principally to the drop in incidents of thefts from and of motor vehicles. Three cars were stolen from the campus between July and December, 1982 (two before school was in session) compared with none a year earlier. A slight increase (6 percent) of thefts from dormitory rooms was reported. C rimes against persons also showed a significant decline, falling by 50 percent. There were six robberies and assaults in the July-December 1982 period, down from twelve last year. Schweighoffer attributes the steady reduction in crime to an increase in the size of the security force, and the dedication of the officers, as well as the "cooperation of students, staff and faculty to decrease their vulnerability to crime."

"Mary Uo~ "

Marine archaeologists salvage a 16th~century British battleship. By Barrie Andrian Burden '79


he climax of one of the world's most ambitious underwater archaeological operations occurred on October 11th, 1982 when the remains of an early 16th-century British battleship were successfully raised to the surface after more than 437 years on the ocean floor. The ship was the Mary Rose, the vice-flagship of King Henry The Eighth's fleet in 1545. In that year the French launched an attack against England's south coast, and at Portsmouth in particular. During the initial stages of this engagement, the veteran 700-ton Mary Rose, commanded by Vice Admiral Sir George Carew, suddenly heeled over and sank almost immediately, coming to rest on the starboard side. Few survived of the reputed 700 men on board, and it is said that King Henry witnessed the tragedy from Southsea Castle, only a mile away. In 1978, some four centuries after the Mary Rose went down, I was spending my junior year in London and learned that a small national charity, The Mary Rose Trust, was dedicated to the excavation, recovery and eventual display of the ship. What better way to com-

bine my major in history with my hobby of diving, a skill I had learned in my sophomore year at Trinity. So, I joined the diving team for the summer, an experience that began my passionate interest in the ship. A year later, after earning my Trinity degree, I came back to England and have continued serious work on the project ever since. Until recently, the remains of the Mary Rose lay between 15 and 25 meters beneath the surface, buried by layers of sand, mud, and modern oily deposits. The ship had sunk on its starboard side into soft sand, leaving only portions of the bow and stern-castles, and the whole port side exposed to tidal action. As the centuries passed, silts filled the wreck and the port side eroded away, collapsing both in and outboard. The remaining timbers and contents that were thrown against the starboard side were astonishingly wellpreserved due to the anaerobic atmosphere caused by rapid silting-over. That first summer of diving on the Mary Rose was fascinating, but equally confusing. I never saw more than

two or three meters of anything because of the murky water. Even when I could see the timbers in my small work area, I was at a loss to identify them. (Imagine working in a dark room where everything is heeled over at 60 ° and largely obscured from your vision!) By the end of the summer, however, I felt at home under such conditions, and had learned to interpret some structure and understand the significance of the sediments we were removing. Our archaeological methods were an underwater adaptation of those used on land. We used airlifts made from 4- and 6-inch diameter plastic drainpipes to remove the silts and clay instead of picks, shovels, and wheelbarrows. The airlift served as an underwater vacuum cleaner, powered by a compressor on the surface; by using our hands or trowels all the 'spoil' was sent up the pipe, carried away by the tides and deposited away from the wreck. I soon learned that the texture of the silts which had infiltrated the ship played a very important archaeological role. We were able to date artifacts by the layers in which they were found, just as land archaeologists may do. We cut sections of firm clay across the ship from port to starboard, a distance of 13-15 meters. By so

doing we defined the modern layers of black oily silts at seabed level, followed by the 19th to 17th century layers, consisting of rock-hard, shelly sediments and containing varied objects from wine bottles to clay pipes. It was under this layer that we determined the "Tudor" layers, characterized by smooth, firm, grey clay the texture of cream cheese. These were the fine silts which covered the contents of the Mary Rose soon after she sank, and which had compacted together over the centuries. By late 1980 our diving team and corps of volunteers were down to these prime Tudor levels throughout the ship. We had removed an overburden of the surmounting post-Tudor layers of as much as 3 to 5 meters! Our trenches or work areas became increasingly deeper, which shortened our dive time. (We followed Royal Naval dive tables, which outlined the amount of time one could spend at varying depths. For example, the shallow work areas in 1978 allowed us 96 minutes in a single dive; by May 1982 we were reduced to 46 minutes.) Also by this time I had become a supervisor of the many volunteers who came for short periods; I had also married one of the diving officers, David Burden. (See

photo.) Through each diving season from March until as late as December we dived from the D.S.V. Sleipner, an old submarine salvage barge which was moored over the site. Our small, permanent team of twenty lived on board this vessel, working in shifts. As one of the four archaeological supervisors, my work area spanned from the bow to midships, some 18 x 15 x 2 to 6 meters. I shared this area with another supervisor, Adrian Barak. The other two supervisors, Chris Dobbs and Jon Adams, worked a similar area, but from midships to stern. Each of these areas was divided into 6 trenches as shown. (See photo 2.) We all supervised our own squads of about 10-15 volunteers a day (in summer), organizing their dive times and places of work, instructing them underwater in airlifting and excavation techniques, as well as drawing and surveying. We interpreted their "finds" and ensured that the divers noted the position of their discoveries with regard to fixed points within the ship. The contents of the ship are important because they represent a nearly complete picture ofTudor life at sea. We know what clothes the men wore for we have recovered many leather jerkins, shoes and boots. We've recovered many of their personal and domestic items including leather flasks and pewter plates, two huge cooking cauldrons from the 'galley' area, and the rope netting of a possible hammock. There are also many pieces of heavy armament - both bronze and iron guns - as well as the lighter hand weapons of the time. The finest artifact of all, of course, is the ship itself. The 1982 archaeological season differed from all those previous explorations because we worked day and night, and side-by-side with the salvage and recovery team. The latter group of divers, my husband included, had all worked as staff divers on t h e site before, but had obtained the necessary further professional training to enable them to do the preparatory work for raising the hull. By this time all the removable internal structure had been dismantled, a total of 33,000 timbers since 1979. All remaining artifacts had also been recovered, totalling approximately 17,000 items. We had spent nearly seven man-years on the seabed since that time. My own special project in that last season was the interpretation and dismantling of the ship's cooking area, or galley. This work entailed the removal of approximately 3,000 bricks, only half of which were still in situ. We now have a fair understanding of the design of the area, the details of which will be published in early 1984 in the archaeological volume for the Mary

Rose. The strategy for the lifting operation involved five

major phases. First, in June 1982 an air-filled, steel, lifting frame measuring 36 x 17 meters and fitted with four 10-meter legs was towed out to the site. Four 6-8 meterdeep holes had been dug outboard of the ship, one on each side of the bow, and one on each side of the stern. These holes marked the "foot positions" for the legs of the frame. The air in the tubes of the lifting frame was pumped out and it was lowered over the ship, resting about 2m above the tops of the timbers. The legs sat in their pre-excavated positions. Phase two involved the installation of wire cables connecting the hull to the lifting frame. While a team of Royal Engineers had been responsible for the frame, our own salvage and recovery team performed all tasks relating to the ship. Working in poor conditions and zero visibility the team drilled approximately 170 holes in the ship for the placement of ring bolts. The bolts clamped together the frames of the ship where the original 16th century iron bolts had disintegrated. All the new bolts were padded both inside and outside the ship. The internal padding posed no problems, but to fit the external pads the salvage team had to tunnel under the ship several times, using water jets to blast the sediments and airlifts to clear them. The tunnels also helped break the suction between the compacted clay and the hull. On completion of this task, steel wires- approximately 130 in all- were then connected from the eyes of the bolts to special attachments on the cross tubes of the lifting frame. These wires and bolts are visible on the photo of the ship rising. Phase three was a crucial stage in the operation. On October 1st the ship was 'jacked up' off the seabed by hydraulic jacks attached to the legs of the lifting frame. Shortly after midnight the Mary Rose made history again, just centimeters off the seabed, yet swinging gently in the tide! Phase four introduced the ship's cradle, a 150-ton steel device prefabricated to the exact contours of the ship based on our archaeological surveys. This cradle was towed out and positioned a few meters away from the port side of the wreck, awaiting the transfer of the ship into the cradle. The transfer was achieved by Tog Mora 100-meter-long crane-barge provided by Howard Doris Marine Services. The crane raised the Mary Rose off the seabed, but there was difficulty in positioning th e legs of the lifting frame into the receiving positions of the cradle; one of the forward legs bent during the process and had to be removed, replaced by heavy wires. The fifth and final phase was the climax of the operation. At 09:03 on October 11th the first timbers of the

After one heart-rending hitch of the lifting frame, which fell to within centimeters of the ship, the rest of the program followed smoothly. The ensemble of cradle, ship, and lifting frame were placed on a barge. Later that evening the Mary Rose, cheered by hundreds of well-wishers lining the shore, was towed back home through Portsmouth Harbour to the naval dockyard where she had been built in 1510. This was the third salvage operation performed on the Mary Rose and obviously the only successful one. Venetian divers had attempted to raise the ship on a tidal lift after the battle in 1545, but with no success. In fact, during the excavation we recovered heavy cable from _under the stern which the Venetians probably had slung under the hull. The Mary Rose then lay forgotten until the 19th century when pioneer salvage divers, John and Charles Deane, accidentally found some of the guns from the port side. Although they raised many objects they never managed to expose the wreck in its entirety. Once again the Mary Rose sank into oblivion and was not rediscovered untill967 by Alexander McKee, an amateur diver and historian. The story of the excavation begins then, but is far too long to incorporate here. Meanwhile, work continues on the Mary Rose and its collection, for a mass of material must be properly recorded. There are still problems to ponder about the history of the ship itself. For instance, no one is yet certain as to why the ship sank. Contemporary accounts by the French claim it was their gunfire which caused the tragedy. Fortunately for the British, there was no excavation evidence to substantiate this claim! The main reasons, based on British contemporary records, were probably a combination of handling and judgement errors, an over-confident crew, overloading the ship's complement by more than 200 extra men, and open gunports. But, why is this ship so important? The Mary Rose represented a technical improvement in the development of fighting ships. In 1509, Henry The Eighth embarked on an intensive modernization of the fleet, incorporating an up-to-date range of ordnance with a more stable warship. The Mary Rose was a prototype for this design, which she proved was successful, just one year after launching. Most contemporary illustrations and paintings depict Tudor hulks as fighting platforms, with guns high in the ship and grapnels ready to close with the enemy. They had rounded sterns and heavy overlapping or

'clinker' planking. The Mary Rose incorporated a modified structure with a wider range of armament. The former round stern was replaced with a squaretransomed design, into which two gunports for heavy guns were cut. More guns could be carried at the stern as a result. The clinker hull planking was replaced with flush edge-to-edge or carvel planking, so that gun ports could be cut far down in the hull and still be sealed properly. This innovation obvious! y meant the Mary Rose could carry more and heavier guns, positioned low in the ship for increased stability. It also meant that a wide variety of bronze muzzle-loading and wroughtiron breech-loading guns could be balanced through the waist and fighting castles of the ship. With improved ordnance longer range battles were possible, and the broadside attack really came into its own. Though the Mary Rose was a veteran ship of 35 years in 1545, her age had little to do with her sinking. She was obviously a solidly constructed vessel for the timbers to have survived so well over the centuries. There are still traces of the caulking covering the seams of the ship, and nearly all of the major oak frames are as sturdy as the day they were pegged and bolted together. Our own feeling of the worthiness of this ship was confirmed when the Mary Rose was first being raised. Hanging securely from the lifting frame, she actually floated in the cradle before being raised out of the water altogether. Furthermore, once lifted and free of the sea, water poured out of the gunports until the level was below the openings inside the ship. Not a single drop leaked through the planking, so we had to spend hours pumping out the remaining seawater! The hull is now resting in a drydock at Portsmouth's Naval Base. Its permanent home will be a Tudor Ship Museum, now being erected around the Mary Rose. Work on the ship will continue, meanwhile, as wereinstall the structure that was removed to facilitate the lift off the floor of the sea. While the hull gradually takes shape, the ship is being sprayed continuously with sea water to prevent the wood from drying out. Soon the sprays will be fresh water to begin leaching the salts from the saturated timbers. Later the sprays will incorporate chemicals to treat and preserve the frames. With hard work and a lot of luck, the Mary Rose will be on display to the public beginning in June of this year, given adequate funding. As the Mary Rose Trust is a charitable organization, it has largely depended on industry and personal donations fo~路 support. The British government has contributed small amounts, and

Prince Charles has been an admirable benefactor. However, it is one thing to raise a ship, but quite another to conserve it. Fund-raising plays an important role and we are fortunate to have a supporting American-based organization.

The Fraternity Debate For the past year the campus has been engaged in a discussion about the role of fraternities and sororities at Trinity, and whether the Col, lege would be a better institution if the Greek,letter societies ceased to exist. In December, the faculty voted to phase out these organizations in three years. Among the students there appears to be no groundswell of opinion to do away with the fraternity system, which provides a good part of undergraduate social life. The future of fraternities and sororities is now in the hands of a trustee committee, scheduled to make recommendations to the entire Board by May 21st. To acquaint the alumni body with the issues at hand, the editors of the Reporter have prepared the following special section on the fraternity debate.

Faculty Committee Deport Faculty votes phase-out of fraternities in three years. By William L. Churchill


LAST DECEMBER, at the largest faculty meeting in recent memory, the Trinity faculty approved the following motion: "That the faculty recommend to the President that the fraternity system at Trinity be phased out over the next three years." The tally was 69 to 33 with one abstention. The vote came following a report by a Faculty Committee on the Fraternity System and Its Alternatives that had been deliberating for more than a year. Space limitations in the magazine make it impossible to carry the full Committee Report, a detailed, 24-page document. The Committee's procedures and findings, however, form the basis of the following discussion of the fraternity issue, and key sections of the report to the faculty appear in italics throughout the article. The precipitating event for the faculty review of fraternities was an alleged episode of group sex that took place in the Alpha Chi Rho house in the spring of 198L Now commonly known as the "Crow Incident," this occurrence produced an atmosphere of outrage on campus that led to the appointment of a faculty committee charged to look at the role of fraternities and to study the entire question without prejudice. While the Crow Incident was the trigger, it is fair to say that the gun had been loaded for some time. Ever since the College went coeducational in 1969, there have been periodic discussions about student behavior and how well the institution was meeting the changing needs of the student body. Though the focus of the Committee was on fraternal organizations, its concerns surely reflected an underlying disquietude about student life in general at the College. The fraternity committee was appointed by the faculty conference in the fall of 1981. Members were: Deborah Bergstrand, mathematics; Henry DePhillips, chemistry; George Higgins, psychology; Kenneth Lloyd-Jones, modern languages; Harold Martin, humanities; and Robert Stewart, mathematics; and Henry D'Auria, class of'83. The Committee represented a cross-section of disciplines; average age of the . members was 50; average time in college teaching was 20 years. During its deliberations the Committee met a total of

26 times. lt sat with College administrators, fraternity faculty advisors, with the chairman of the InterFraternity Council (IFC) and other appropriate individuals. It also held open meetings with both faculty and students and gathered data through three separate questionnaires. The Committee also had access to various reports and documents concerning the relationships between the College and the fraternities over the years. Among the questions investigated were: the historic role of fraternities at Trinity, distinctions between fraternity and non-fraternity members, relationships between the College and fraternities, and whether the fraternity system should be changed or replaced. When the Committee began its study there were six fraternities and two sororities at Trinity with an average age of slightly over 100 years. (A seventh fraternity, Delta Phi, was activated in May 1982.) All but one of these groups, Delta Kappa Epsilon, limited membership to either men or women. Though membership records were somewhat sketchy, it was estimated that for 1981-82 there were 201 men (24 percent of enrolled males) and 38 women (5 percent of enrolled females) in fraternities and sororities: a total of239 students or 15 percent of all students enrolled in the College. (For a more detailed look at the history of Greek-letter organizations, see the accompanying article on page 26.)

INSTITUTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS Over the past twenty years the fraternity system at Trinity has experienced a mixed reception. In the early 1960's, fraternities were at their zenith with as many as 12 houses at one point along with the Brownell Club for independent students. Limited College facilities for feeding and housing students made Trinity substantially dependent on the fraternities for such services. The opening of Mather Hall in 1962 and subsequent dormitory construction made the College much less dependent on the fraternities. In the late sixties and early seventies, the political and social climate of the post-Vietnam period made fraternities less appealing for many undergraduates; by 1975 only six houses had survived. The Administration, for its part, was largely preoccupied with the transition to

coeducation, and the relationship between the houses and the College might best be described as "benign ignorance." In the late seventies, fraternities at Trinity and elsewhere experienced a resurgence and their increased visibility prompted Trinity President Theodore D. Lockwood to ask the Board of Fellows to review the relationships between the College and the fraternities. The Board of Fellows submitted a special report in May 1980, in direct response to the President's request . .. It begged the question of the existence of fraternities at Trinity, listing both as an assumption and as a conclusion that their net value was positive ... it did state that "there is, however, a growing perception in the non-fraternity segment of the community that the fraternities are, in fact, an obstacle to realization of the institutional objectives regarding minorities and women." Further, "the issues of membership, especially of women and minorities, are being avoided by some houses whose present membership does not reflect the makeup of the undergraduate body." The Fellows went on to recommend that future fraternity problems should be resolved through the InterFraternity Council and that the College should adopt a code of fraternity conduct addressing issues such as membership, rushing, hazing, conduct of social affairs, academic standards and regulations covering individuals in fraternities. Subsequently, such a code was established in 1981, clarifying the College's expectations of the Greek-letter organizations and bringing all fraternity properties under the jurisdiction of College regulations. Though the College had strengthened its hand, the Committee found little sign of compliance on the part of the fraternities. There is however, no evidence to date of a changed position, or even of recognition of need to consider a changed

Pi Kappa Alpha

position on the part of the fraternities. For instance, the Statement (in the Student Handbook) specifically requires an annual report in June from each fraternity. The Committee asked permission to read the reports early in September, 1982, and learned that none had to that date been submitted. For its part, the Committee had d ifficulty eliciting information from the fraternities: only three of the six property-owning houses responded to the questionnaire about their operations. Based on the partial responses, the Committee constructed the following fraternity profile: Fraternities do not house any significant number of students; their board costs are roughly equivalent to on-campus board costs; the physical plants are owned by alumni corporations which support the fraternities as well, some more generously than others. In all three responding houses, beer is available to members at all times; the major activities of fraternities paid for by members are parties. The Committee made particular note of special housing arrangements by which the College granted preferential treatment to Delta Psi in Ogilby Hall and to Alpha Chi Rho in Northam 203. These agreements not only exclude women from these areas, but also result in an inequity between the number of students occupying these spaces and the number assigned to similar spaces elsewhere on campus. Such inequities appear to violate the "comparable quality" section of the Education Amendment of 1972 to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, according to the Committee interpretation. Five faculty advisors to fraternities were also interviewed by the Committee. The following items represent a synopsis of their comments: â&#x20AC;˘ In matters of self-governance, the fraternities vary widely. Some are well organized and manage their affairs effectively; some are chaotic. The state of governance is seldom

Delta Kappa Epsilon


the result of the activity of the faculty advisor, sometimes the result of the work of one or more interested alumni, most often the result of internal leadership. â&#x20AC;˘ At present, the fraternities appear to be waiting out the current threat to their existence or structure, as they have done before, on the assumption that the flurry of attention will subside. Most of them are hostile to any kind of radical change in their role. â&#x20AC;˘ Though there is less community-wide cultural concern in fraternities than there was in the "sixties," cultural activity remains a regular part of some closed weekly meetings. â&#x20AC;˘ Three of the fraternities have the local option to become co-educational; three do not. There is no evidence that any of them except the one that is co-educational look with favor on becoming so.



To study the effect of fraternities on various segments of the student body, the Committee administered oral questionnaires to sample groups of fraternity members, non-fraternity members and freshmen. Responses to the invitations to the interviews were varied: 85 percent of the fraternity sample showed up; 43 percent of the non-fraternity group appeared; only 2 of 49 freshmen responded. Conclusions from these interviews are as follows:

Nearly all fraternity members find fraternity life enjoyable and beneficial; what they claim to value most - close friendships - they believe is richly fostered by fraternities; non-fraternity men and women unanimously declared satisfaction with their independence from affiliation, split about evenly between regarding fraternities as "beneficial" and ''immaterial,'' and were equally divided about single-sex and coeducational fraternities. On only one matter ... did they give a sharp anti-fraternity response: 75 percent of the men and 70 percent of the women said that fraternities condone sexual harassment; the same percentage of women said that fraternities promote such harassment, but only 30 percent of the men thought so. To supplement these interviews, the Committee also met separately with a former Tripod editor, generally recognized as an outspoken critic of fraternities, and with the current president of the IFC, who spoke in favor of the organizations:

The critic argued that fraternities obstruct the important aims of a liberal education - helping students to grow intellectually, to develop creatively, and to learn sensitivity toward other human beings. Those obstructions she listed as: institutionalizing both friendship and rejection and institutionalizing, as well, a value-system and a world-view;

St. Anthony Hall

creating in students a false sense of security; emphasizing a bonding which is neither desirable nor, in a small college, necessary; condoning or encouraging the abuse of alcohol, with resulting burdens on the abuser, friends, dorm-mates and resident advisers; depriving students of the opportunity to develop freely; and promoting sexist attitudes - acutal harassment of women and, more generally, distrust between men and women. The best solution to this undesirable condition, in this critic's view, would be outright abolition of fraternal organizations on campus, though their alteration to two-sex social groups would be ''a step in the right direction.'' The creation of alternatives to present social activities so largely dominated by fraternities would quickly occur if they were abolished, and in the critic's view a further bonus might result in the attraction of a more diversified student body to the College. The fraternity spokesman's argument mirrored in part the responses of fraternity men who had been individually interviewed by the Committee: that fraternities serve the important functions of sponsoring a vigorous social life, that they perform as part of that activity some valuable "cultural" services to the College as a whole, and that- most importantly - they create a sense of brotherhood among members and thereby provide a significant "bridging role" for students at a time in their lives when, since they are subject to many tensions and personal uncertainties, they can profit from a link to tradition and from the development of lifelong associations which reach across age differences. To achieve their purposes, the spokesman continued, fraternities really need both the principle of selectivity and the principle of secrecy because both are essential for the bonding function of brotherhood and neither can work properly if subjected to criteria imposed from outside the fraternity itself. The fraternity spokesman concluded by pointing out that the physical

location of chapter houses and therefore the ready identifiability of fraternity members unfairly subjected them to scrutiny and criticism not imposed on other students, and by indicating that whatever abuses actually do occur can readily be corrected and reduced in frequency by more vigorous action from administrative officers of the College." The Committee also talked with th e Dean of Students, who reported that the principal problem with fraternities was that these groups, on occasion, encouraged undesirable behavior that individuals would not ordinarily undertake on their own. A partial answer to the group disturbances, according to the dean, was


Only 24 percent of the faculty responded to the Committee questionnaire seeking information about facu lty-fraternity interaction and opinions about possible alterations in the fraternity system. W hile 77 percent of the respondents said faculty should be involved in the non-academic life of students, only 36 percent would be willing to serve on a committee to monitor changes in the current system. Fifty-four percent opined that fraternities should be abolished and replaced with another structure. The Committee also sat with Professor Samuel Kassow, a member of the history department and an alumnus of the College. As the individual who made the original motion in the faculty meeting that led to the creation of the Committee, his comments were of particular interest.

better monitoring of fraternity activity by the Administration, and strengthening of the IFC. He also felt that fraternities should be non-exclusionary, nondiscriminatory and should put more energy into non-social community activities. He supported the fraternities' contention that they have a valuable role in alleviating feelings of insecurity among members by providing a sense of affiliation, but expressed concern about the negative effects on those who are refused membersh ip. Finally, he noted that in periods when the SGA is strong it has been able to provide appealing alternatives to fraternity social life.

In comparison with the years in which he was an undergraduate and a fraternity member (in an all-male college with enough fraternities so that anyone who wanted to join a fraternity could do so), he believes the current situation has seriously deteriorated, primarily because of a failure to change the social structure in the wake of co-education. Social life is now dominated by the minority who belong to fraternities. The future health of the College will require, in addition to a solution OJ the "fraternity problem," a different admissions policy, a changed curriculum and the raising of capital for expansion of living facilities. Dr. Kassow believes that the present problems of the College are compounded by the fact that fraternities made no change in their own structure after co-education. Further, the Trustees should be the agents of change, and the change at this time should be toward: (I) the development of alternative social facilities, (2) alteration in the membership policy of fraternities to admit women, and (3) possibly expansion of the number of fraternities. The ideal is a house system for the entire College. He thinks that abolition of fraternities at this time is neither possible nor desirable.

Having completed its research and compiled theresults of its interviews and questionnaires, the Committee acknowledged that the net result of its "hard look" to that point was somewhat inconclusive.路


All in all the bulk of both the evidence we have uncovered and of the opinions we have received cannot basically be said to reflect a deeply rooted, all-College concern that the fraternity system is an issue of paramount importance. Whether this is interpreted as an indication of approval, tolerance, apathy, indifference or benign neglect, it is a fact ... Various individuals have strong views, but on balance, the community has not chosen to speak with one, unambiguous or firm voice, either for or against the fraternity system. Despite these indifferent results from its campus surveys, the Committee continued its deliberations with the firm belief that its charge was to make a recommendation in the best interest of the College. The Committee's eventual decision on the fraternity system grew out of basic issues. "First, there has come about a serious gap between the College's public posture and its private positions." Fraternities at Trinity enjoy a privileged status with regard to College regulations, which appear to ensure that the Greek-letter organizations are free to bypass the normal channels of accountability. For example, though the College explicitly condemns discrimination on the basis of sex, fraternities are excused from compliance with this basic principle. Similarly, fraternities are expected to meet certain minimal academic standards, yet the Committee found neither data on the scholastic performance of the organizations nor any plans to gather such information by the Administration. The faculty, for its part, has shown little long-term concern for fraternities despite its mandate to study them; an open meeting on fraternities to which the Committee invited the entire faculty yielded only 12 participants. ''Second . . . the presence of the fraternities has contributed to a measure of delinquency on the institution's part with regard to the provision of social facilities .'' Fraternity parties - large group functions featuring alcohol, loud music and noise - appear to be the institutional model for student social life. The main College social areas- the Pub and Hamlin Hall- encourage the same kinds of activities that tale place at a fraternity party on Saturday night. There are few small, comfortable spaces on campus open to the public and suitable for good conversation, small dinners or tranquil interchanges. In short, the College has come to depend too comfortably on the fraternities for some functions that are more properly the institution's responsibility. ''Third, by their nature the fraternities induce divisiveness within the College community." The Committee found that selection procedures inevitably foster an "us and them" mentality that gives

Alpha Delta Phi

unwarranted prestige to those who are "in" and some stigma for those who are "out." Furthermore, the fraternity system perpetuates the idea of success through acceptability, a concept that runs counter to the College's goals of greater diversity among students to eliminate prevailing social and racial stratification. The benefits of fraternity membership, according to the Committee, are overwhelmingly selfrewarding rather than of value to the community as a whole. While acknowledging that there were positive aspects to fraternity life- the escort system, community service, and charitable projects- the Committee still concluded that the system had influence far out of proportion to its size, and that its influence was basically negative. The Committee cited the fact that over the past 20 years the "problems" of fraternities have occupied an inordinate amount of faculty and administrative concern.

~ CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATION After roughly a year of study and deliberation, the Committee concluded that Trinity would be a healthier place socially and intellectually if fraternities and sororities were abolished. Without denying the importance of traditions and the satisfactions of fraternity and sorority membership, the Committee found both factors outweighed by considerations of the community at large. Their conclusion to phase out the fraternity system is based on the following judgements:

1. Fundamental changes in the conditions of public and collegial life and, more specifically, in the character of the college population over recent decades have sharply diminished, if not entirely eliminated the utility of fraternities and have rendered the tradition which they represent both irrelevant and anachronistic; in short, no need exists for the continuance of the fraternity system. 2. The fraternity system is inherently divisive and therefore damaging to the social egalitarianism which is the bedrock of democratic polity.

3. Exclusionary practices based primarily or entirely on the principle of private and secret codes and agreements violate the spirit and purposes of an education designed to encourage the habit of open inquiry, the development of critical thinking and the broadening of cultural perspectives. 4. The social function now served by fraternities and sororities can and should be met by a variety of alternative activities open to all who wish to participate. Greater student creativity must be expected, and fostered, in this respect, and more tangible support, from both the Administration and the Faculty, should be forthcoming to encourage the SGA and all other student groups who show initiative in the search for alternatives.

SECONDARY RECOMMENDATION Though the Committee was unanimous in its decision to recommend abolishment of fraternities and sororities, the members recognized that other entities in the decision, i.e. the faculty as a whole or the trustees, might not reach a similar conclusion. With the conviction that the worst outcome would be the preservation of the status quo the Committee therefore added an alternate course of action to its report: - that full membership in all officially recognized organizations be open to all who qualify on the basis of criteria publicly advertised and officially endorsed; - that all officially recognized campus orgnizations be subject to annual (or biennial) review for renewal by a Faculty-Administration-Student Committee, the decision for continuance to be made on the basis of compliance with the regulations of the College and evidence of contribution to the general welfare of the college community; - that agreements now existing between the College and fraternal organizations regarding dormitory facilities be revised (a) to apply a uniform occupancy rate and (b) to open the east end of Ogilby Hall to occupancy on the basis of the college-wide lottery system or whatever system of room assignment may subsequently be devised for the general college population. - that the Administration now undertake to initiate a vigorous program which will encourage students all over the campus to take major responsibility for creating their own varied and flexible patterns of activities; funding to the end, and the provision and maintenance of space in each dormitory and in Mather Hall for small group social activities, should be a priority. â&#x20AC;˘

Since the facu lty vote on the Committee Report, discussion of the future of the fraternity system has been taken up by an ad hoc Trustee Committee, chaired by Karl E. Scheibe '59. Other members of the committee are: Leonard E. Greenberg '48; Emily G. Holcombe '74; Dora R. Lowenstein; William R. Peelle '44; Dr. George W. B. Starkey '39 and the Rt. Rev. Arthur E. Walmsley '48. Board Chairman Edward A. Montgomery '56 and President James F. English, Jr. serve as ex officio members. The Statement of Purpose, issued by the Trustee Committee early in February, appears in the box adjoining this article.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: Ad Hoc T rustee Committee to Study the Fraternity/Sorority System At its initial meeting on Saturday, January 29, the Ad Hoc Committee resolved to undertake its review of the future of the fraternity/ sorority system at Trinity in the context of a general consideration of the quality of undergraduate residential and social life at the College. We conceive our charge to consist not only in developing a recommendation on the future of fraternities and sororities at Trinity, but also in making q. series of suggestions designed to produce and enhance a lasting atmosphere of community purpose and mutual trust. Our Committee considers it to be essential that there be a sense of common purpose and enterprise for the various organizations and institutional entities that constitute the College community. At present, the nature of mutual obligation and accountability that exists between Greek letter societies and the College is not well defined or understood. The Committee takes the faculty recommendation on the fraternity/sorority system to bespeak a serious dissatisfaction with this state of affairs. While the Committee is in no position at present to support or not support the faculty's recommendation, we understand the dissatisfaction expressed by the faculty and take their position with utmost seriousness. We intend in the course of our deliberations to hear a variety of groups representing all of the College's constituencies. We suggest that all individuals or groups who wish to express their views to us do so in writing. Those who wish to meet personally with the Committee should address their request to Dr. Karl E. Scheibe, c/o Elizabeth R. Goldman, Office of the President, Trinity College. We will invite groups or individuals to appear before our Committee as time and circumstances permit. Our objective is to produce for the consideration and action of the Board of Trustees at its meeting on May 21, 1983 a series of recommendations dealing not only with the future of fraternities and sororities, but also on more general matters related to the quality of student residential and social life. We are determined that this effort be nondivisive, constructive, and respectful of the rights of all in the Trinity College community.â&#x20AC;˘


Then and Now Secret societies have been part of Trinity since 1828. by Roberta Jenckes


"THE TABLET WAS, of course, eminently correct when it described the fraternity system as a restraining force on the campus. Many of the most pleasant social functions were sponsored by the fraternities. The annual reunion dinners held during Commencement Week were eagerly looked forward to, and fraternity dances were high days in the College's social calendar. And during the rushing season the Freshman ate and drank 'at the expense of his new and strangely enthusiastic friends, until he grew fat and sleek as a lizard.' "But those not selected to membership in the enchanted circle could easily become bitter, and in some instances one not elected to a fraternity could remember the slight for the rest of his life. Many Freshmen must have been amazed at the workings of a system whereby, as the Tablet once described it, 'a man's whole future may depend upon the cut of his coat.' " from The History of Trinity College by Glenn Weaver

A reading of The History of Trinity College offers numerous fascinating glimpses, such as this one from around 1890, into more than 100 years oflife at Trinity. It also gives the reader a sense of history repeating itself. For, time and time again in the reading, it becomes apparent that the College, and the fraternities within the institution, continually experience cyclesgrowth, retrenchment, rebirth, retreat - and seek resolution to the problems evolving within each stage. Fraternities have been a presence at Trinity since the very earliest days of the College, their only precedents as social groups being the literary societies. Most American colleges in the early 19th century had at least one such group, and Trinity's first, the Athenaeum Society, was formed with the encouragement of Bishop Brownell in 1825, just two years after the College was founded. A rival group, the Parthenon Society, was formed in 1827. Membership in these societies was open, and most undergraduates tended to join one or the other. Soon, however, fraternities entered the Trinity scene; the earliest of these, Theta Beta Phi, was in existence at least as early as 1828. Three ~ther secret societiesI.K.A., Phi Kappa, and Black Book- were formed

over the next 14 years. The groups had literary as well as social aims, with some portion of each society meeting set aside for oratory and discussion. The fraternities were not large; Phi Kappa, for example, admitted an average of six students per year in the period 18351859. They were also not undemocratic; in the class of 1851 all but two of the 2 graduates were fraternity members. While the literary societies continued to be a presence at Trinity, during the 1850's student interest began to move more toward the fraternities. Traditionally more successful at cultivating student loyalty, the fraternities also focused on the fulfillment of undergraduates' emotional and social needs, rather than academic. The "literary" aspect of fraternities persisted, however; meetings were educational as well as social, and the fraternities took pride in promoting the academic accomplishments of their members, the numbers elected to class offices, and so forth. While the Civil War had a dampening effect on fraternity membership, the post-war period was a boom time for them. Rushing was conducted with renewed vigor, and fraternities at Trinity established permanent quarters off campus in which to hold their meetings. When Delta Psi had a chapter house built on Summit Street in 1878, the other fraternities soon followed with plans for their own houses. Fraternity men continued to live in the dormitories, however, with members traditionally occupying sections of certain dorms. Meanwhile, the College was in the midst of a growing period; with the arrival of President George W. Smith in 1883, the size of the student body had grown considerably, doubling during the first five years of his administration. As a consequence, a smaller percentage

of the student body could be admitted into the fraternities, even though two new houses had joined the campus scene. Some discussion ensued in the student newspaper about "cliqueism" on campus. The student newspaper came to the defense of the fraternities, however, pointing out that cliques would develop in any community, and that the fraternities acted as a restraining influence on members through their sponsorship of social activities on campus. Moreover, it could be said that the fraternities were respectful of the rights of the "neutrals" and there was not an existing hierarchy of fraternity membership- i.e., no one house was considered more desirable because of its age or national reputation. And, of course, the fraternities sponsored many social activities on campus. In 1890, Alpha Delta Phi built a house on Vernon Street which had the facilities to feed and house six to eight students. This move was soon duplicated by the other fraternities and was applauded by President Smith because it helped to relieve some of the overcrowding in the dormitories resulting from the increased numbers in the student body. Also at about this time, a controversy which had arisen previously about the allocation of class offices among fraternity members resurfaced. This time the only remaining "local" fraternity at the College, LK.A., failed to have a member elected to a class office, apparently because the four Trinity fraternities with national affiliation had joined forces against I.K.A. It was a bitter quarrel with no satisfactory resolution for LK.A., since the other fraternities insisted the elections had been fair. Fraternity membership overall became a problem early in the 20th century in the same way that it had in the post-Civil War period. The College was growing rapidly but, as the student body grew in size, proportionately fewer men could join fraternities. Also, it was becoming apparent that the frat men came from the ranks of the boarding students, and not the town students. With the inauguration of President Remsen B. Ogilby in 1920 came renewed attention to the old questions of student life and the College's mission. Ogilby believed that Trinity should remain small in order to fulfill its mission of providing students with a broad,

liberal education. He wanted to keep the size of the College at about 250 students, and during the early years of his long tenure, this number did remain fairly constant. The number of day students at this time was about 100. Trinity alumni were not entirely supportive of the notion that the College remain small, and some alumni were concerned that there were not enough of the kinds of students they would like to see at Trinity, such as those who were traditionally fraternity members. Alumni of Delta Psi were the first to take action on this concern, calling a meeting in 1927 to work on the problems of the Trinity chapter - a chapter house in need of repair, falling membership, insufficient funds. The meeting resulted in a specific plan of action to raise funds, recruit students and conduct a study of the fraternity system at Trinity and of the chapter. The conclusions of the study were pessimistic: student morale was found to be low, and the future of the fraternity system questionable, as it was thought that the number of qualified men entering the College was too small to maintain the fraternities. The concerns of the Delta Psi alumni were echoed by other fraternities at the College, and soon all of them joined in an inter-fraternity committee. Ultimately, their recommendations to President Ogilby revolved around the College's regaining its national reputation by limiting the number of Hartford students to 20 percent of the entire student body, and by a more careful screening of the boarding students. The report also called for a more well-rounded athletic program and a modernization of the curriculum. An enrollment of 500 students, 125 of them from Hartford, was set as the ideal size for the College and in 1936 the goal was reached. The years of the thirties, so difficult for the country, were remarkable forT rinity in that other goals to which the IFC committee had alluded in its report were being met. Alumni, assisting the College by recruiting in the better preparatory schools in the East, were able to attract a larger number of these students to Trinity, and all areas of undergraduate life were improving: academic performance, social life, the fraternity system, the athletic program. It was an . exceptional period for the College, a calm before the storm of World War II. The war disrupted the lives of the students, the College and the fraternity system drastically, but the postwar period was another boom time for the fraternities. The College was again entering a growth period, and the fraternities could offer members, beyond the social advantages, room and board. The latter was always a big drawing card as the food offered at the fraternities was judged to be better than that served by the College. Each house had its own cook and took pride in the culinary offerings therein, often inviting faculty and other campus guests in for lunch or dinner. The Brownell Club became an alternative to the fraternities after its founding in 1949 as a social organization sponsoring athletic activities and other events for residential and day students. Although not all nonfraternity members joined the Brownell Club, it was a popular and well-established organization, remembered to have had 75-100 members yearly and a house for social purposes. Another non-fraternity alternative, The



DERBY DAY, featuring races down Vernon St., was a popular fraternity event in the late fifties.

Independents, was organized in 1956, and provided social activities for all students. The fraternity system flourished at Trinity during the 1950's and 60's, when the College was still all-male and growing rapidly. Enrollment reached 1000 in the 1950's, and at one point there were as many as 12 fraternities in residence. A 1966 Board of Fellows report on the fraternity system noted that membership had increased substantially in relation to the total number of students' eligible to join fratern ities. For the years surveyed in the report, 1957-1966, fraternity membership ranged from 362 to 523, or 51-71% of upperclassmen. The report also noted that in 1957 the fraternities housed 138 students, while in 1966, they housed 66. With the College's rapid expansion, the fraternities' capacity for feeding and housing members became increasingly important, and one for which the College was somewhat dependent on the fraternities, although that dependency was somewhat lessened with the completion of Mather Hall in 1962. The fraternities very much dominated campus life during this period, particularly in terms of social activities and intramural sports, but their existence was accepted and indeed constituted a major aspect of collegiate life for some members. The fraternities were also very formally integrated into the College structure, so that there were strict regulations about the conduct of social events, chaperoning at parties, etc. But even with the 11 or 12 fraternities in residence during this period, there were inevitably students who did not become members, leading to disappointment

and for some the difficult experience of trying to carve out a social life outside of the fraternities . The 1966 Board of Fellows report, noting that, as the student body had grown more residential, the students' and fraternities' interest in one another had increased, recommended that several more fraternities be added in the coming years, in order to accommodate the numbers of students who would like to join. What appeared to be a smoothly running, well-oiled system of collegiate life was to be turned topsy-turvy in the late 1960's, and the fortunes of the fraternity system swung with it. The eleven fraternities of 1970 were reduced to six by 1975. An explanation for the decline seems to be that services and facilities for undergraduates had improved and provided alternatives to fraternity membership. Additionally, major ideological movements of the late 1960's and early 1970's- the anti-Vietnam War, civil rights, student rights, and various political candidates' causes - drew to them many students who would have in other times been active fraternity members. Fraternities became an irrelevancy, losing lustre when compared with the dramatic immediacy of student and national causes. At Trinity, for example, 150 students, or 14 percent of the total enrollment, participated in the muchpublicized 1968 administration building sit-in. Psychologist and educator Dr. Kenneth Keniston, observed after spending a week in residence at Trinity in 1968, that "one major dividing line at the College is the fraternity system ... at Trinity, as at most liberal arts colleges and private universities, the student mood

is such that fraternities are far le~s attractive to undergraduates than they were ten years ago. New student needs have emerged, which are not only social, but in a broad sense political and intellectual." A change in the attitude of students toward the fraternity system could be discerned in a study of the Trinity community done in the academic year 1971-72 by College Counselors Randolph Lee and George Higgins. In response to a question on the most important reason for not joining a fraternity, more than 38 percent of respondents who were non-fraternity members cited disagreement with the essential values of fraternity life. For those survey respondents who were fraternity members, "liking the people" was given as the most important reason for joining. In the late 1960's and early 1970's the attention of administrators at the College was turned toward the transition to a coeducational institution and to other major events of the period. Coeducation and the emergence

onto the campus scene of women's groups was to have some impact on the fraternities, as did the change in the age of majority in the early 1970's, which made a substantial difference in the availability of alcohol. In 1968, in a revision of its regulations, the College omitted any reference to its authority over fraternities, placing them in the position of off-campus organizations and thereby beyond the jurisdiction of the regulations governing student life on campus. Beyond this change, however, certain understandings have continued to exist between the College and the fraternities: that members would be selected regardless of their race, color, creed, national or ethnic origins; that hazing would not be practiced; and that financial support would not be available from the College to existing organizations or to those establishing chapters at Trinity. During the mid-1970's, fraternities at Trinity and elsewhere experienced a revival of sorts, although the

high fraternity memberships of the fifties and sixties have not since been duplicated. From a membership of 523 in 1966, for example, fraternity membership at the College today is at 341, or approximately 20 percent of the student body. While the fraternities themselves have comparable memberships to the chapters of the past, a number of fraternities did not return after exiting the campus scene in the 1960's. Today there are seven fraternities and two sororities at Trinity (see chart accompanying this article), the sororities having been founded in the last two years. The arrival of sororities on campus has been something of a surprise, although a 1968 Board of Fellows report on coeducation, written before the changeover, noted that "it would be impossible to foretell, but that some women might wish to found sororities." It's interesting that approximately twelve years passed from the time the first women arrived on campus to the founding of the first sorority, but the history of the fraternity system at Trinity has been characterized as much by surpri,se as predictability in its cycles. â&#x20AC;˘

The History of Trinity CoUege by Glenn Weaver, professor of history, was the prim ary source of information on the fraternities at Trinity through the 1930's. The history of more recent years was gleaned through the recollections of faculty members Gustave Andrian '40 , James Bradley '57, Borden Painter, Jr. '58, and Robert Stewart, and with administrators Thomas Smith '44 and David Winer; and through Board of Fellows reports on the fraternities, on the social life of the undergraduate at Trinity, and on coeducation; and through a study of the community ofT rinity College by the College Counselors.


Abolition: Two Opinions A faculty member and a student present their views.

FRATERNITIES, AT THEIR BEST, exhibit values much like those found in families. In both one can find support, love, a place of retreat from the world and a certain acceptance that does not have to be earned or even deserved. Fraternities at their worst are more like street gangs,

or families gone bad. One finds in them a lack of commitment to a wider community, suspicion and mistrust of non-members, an acceptance of casual violence and a refusal to consider the possibility of change. The fraternities at Trinity are not at either extreme. Nevertheless, some recent actions by some fraternity members have pushed them, occasionally, pretty close to the street gang model. But even if these actions had not taken place and the fraternities were tolerably good families, there would still be no good reason for them to exist. Keep these facts in mind: Trinity (like virtually every other college) has severely limited human and financial resources for the work it has to do. Therefore, it must be very selective about the activities and programs that it will support or even tolerate, and under what conditions it will do so. Above all, Trinity as an institution has a special role to play in society. To understand this role one must remember that teachers instruct, but the college educates. It is the whole college that presents a model for a way of life. Hence all the components of the college, fraternities included, have to be appraised in terms of that model. If that model were essentially that of a family life, if the college were really trying to conduct itself as a large family enterprise, then "family values" would indeed be paramount. The college would succeed in its special work if it could inculcate the virtues of support, friendship and unearned acceptance. It would have endorsed, and perhaps even achieved, a certain goal of socialization. If this were the role of the college, then fraternities would have a place, and the college could devote time and scarce resources to reforming them and seeing that they were run properly in the future . But socialization is not the proper function of a college, and family virtues are not the reason for its being. A college's proper function is not to socialize its members, but to civilize them. One has to assume that people are properly socialized before they join the college. It must be assumed that the students are adults, even if one has to swallow hard to do it. To do less simply prolongs adolescence- and that is hardly a favor to the students. This does not mean that the college should be hostile or even indifferent to social organizations. What it should say to the students is this: the main task of the college is to perpetuate and extend the virtues of civilized life. You may socialize however you please, except that you must do so under a set of rules that the college judges to be compatible with, and supportive of, its main goal. That goal of the college depends on the fact that it belongs historically to that group of institutionsranging from ancient Greek academies to medieval monasteries to modern museums and even to political parties- whose function has been to turn men toward the civilizing practices of public life, and away from ex-

These stereotypes have been tossed around a lot at Trinity College this year. The debate over the worth of fraternities and sororities, in fact, has reached the point where the faculty has voted to abolish the fraternity system. The issue now rests with the Board ofTrustees. There is much about these organizations that has been overlooked. To many, especially those experiencing that fragile evolution from adolescence to adulthood, institutions such as fraternities and sororities can be very positive. They can help foster meaningful friendships, and give people a unique, truly special opportunity to share ideas and emotions with peers. Those who favor abolishment say that fraternities are divisive, sexist and elitist. I couldn't disagree more. Rather than divide the campus, they help bring it together. Through facilities they own and maintain, fraternities provide most ofT rinity's social life. They sponsor endowed lectures, faculty "fireside chats" and academic scholarships. The perception seems to be that when students join one of these organizations, they cross an invisible line that separates them from the rest of the college. Fraternity and sorority members are, in fact, among the most involved students in campus activities. They no more "leave" the college community when they join a frat than an athlete does when he joins the football team. The fraternity system is involved in such activities as Hartford's Big Brother-Big Sister program and aid for the elderly. It organizes blood drives for the Red Cross, and fund-raisers for multiple sclerosis. The list goes on, but the important point is that the fraternity system provides a structure by which such meaningful activities get accomplished. The accusation of sexism also holds little water. How can the fraternity system be called sexist if it does not discriminate on the basis of sex? Both men and women are welcome as members of the system. . Certainly, individual fraternities and sororities are single-sex and hence "discriminate." But single-sex institutions have as much right to exist as coeducational ones. What is wrong with providing a choice? If single-sex institutions are outdated, as has also been charged, why have the two sororities and one fraternity that have been formed in the past three years chosen to limit their membership to one sex? Why has only one fraternity chosen to go coeducational? The charge of elitism is a little tougher to respond to. Fraternities are elite, for the simple reason that there is just not enough room for everyone who would like to join.

elusive satisfaction with family and clan. Family virtues are not what have produced civilization. And, contrary to popular belief, it is not the family that is in danger of collapse today. It is civilization that is threatened by cynicism about public life, suspicion of science and technology and a very deep fear of the future. Families are far older than civilized society, and far less fragile. A college's special role is to act as a model and as an agent of civilized life. Its virtues are those of politics, of science, of artistic expression and, most of all, of reasonableness and clarity of thought. Fraternities are family creatures. They have no essential role to play in the college, even when they function as best they can. If they are strong - and in that strength run contrary to the central life of the college- then they divert student energies away from the very difficult task of preparing for civil life, and of finding one's place in that vastly complex web of belief and practice that is civilization. If they are weak, then they become abusive, and are condemned by simple morality. In either case fraternities as now constituted should be abolished.

nity has been like having 40 best friends who know me as well as I know myself. Sometimes better. My fraternity brothers have provided me with a group-sharing experience which has inculcated love, trust and a real sense of understanding for a diverse group of people. Perhaps the most important aspect of fraternities and sororities lies here, as an important complement to a liberal arts education. My fraternity has not stifled my growth; it has enhanced it. W h ile I would consider the abolishment of fraternities and sororities at Trinity to be an unpardonable suppression of individual and group freedom, I would more deeply regret the prospect that future generations might be dt;:nied what, to me, has been a wonderful experience.

On Other Campuses Amherst, Wesleyan and Williams try different tacks by Kathleen Frederick GREEK LETTER ORGANIZATIONS are part of the history of many formerly all-male, Eastern colleges. To provide perspective on the issue at Trinity, we have examined the situation at three colleges - Amherst, Wesleyan and Williams- schools which have traditions similar to Trinity's and which in recent years have adopted three different approaches to dealing with fraternities on their campuses.

AMHERST: Coeducation There are eight fraternities at Amherst College (down from thirteen in the 1960's), two of which are

nationally affiliated. A n umber of houses lost their national standing several years ago, when the College trustees mandated that the fraternities admit women, after informal pressure for them to do so was not uniformly successful. All of the houses belong to the College, which purchased them in the 1960's, when taxes and upkeep were making it impossible for the fraternities to meet their financial obligations. About 250 students, both men and women, live in the houses, and other students belong as social members. The fraternities are not equipped to serve as eating clubs, and most of Amherst's 1500 students have their meals in a central dining complex. There are no sororities at Amherst. In addition to the eight fraternities, student housing at Amherst consists of five former fraternity houses and sixteen dormitories. Resident counselors reside in each dorm and serve as advisers and activities coordinators for students in their respective areas. First-year students can live in freshmen dorms or with students from all

four classes. Fraternities are permitted to rush students in the spring of their freshman year. According to Irwin Nussbaum, assistant dean of students, the frats "absolutely dominate the social life at Amherst," sponsoring most of the parties on campus. Efforts to encourage them to include community service and educational activities in their programming have largely gone unheeded. Their self-governing body, the Interfraternity Council is "very weak," Nussbaum says. He believes that the social dominance of the fraternities is a genuine problem, both for non-members, who feel left out of the system, and for members who would like to see other alternatives on campus. "The faculty has a poor view of the fraternities," he adds. The College has instituted several regulations regarding fraternity practices. Nussbaum believes that College ownership of the properties has given the administration considerable leverage in this regard. In addition to requiring the houses to go coed, Amherst guarantees that any student who goes through rush at four fraternities will be admitted to one. Any member who expresses interest in residing in his fraternity's house is assured of being able to live there for at least one semester. In the event of an incident at one of the fraternities which requires discipline, the campus judicial board has jurisdiction, just as they do elsewhere on campus. There is no student union building on campus, and Nussbaum thinks that the absence of such a facility contributes to the strength of the fraternity system. Whether a student center should be built is a question now under consideration at Amherst.

A number of the buildings are owned by the fraternities while others are the property of the university. There are no sororities at Wesleyan. The fraternities are self-governing, with the president of each house sitting on the Board of House Presidents, to which Michael Young, associate dean of the College and registrar, is advisor. Fraternity rushing still exists, but is rather informal and low-key. In the event of a situation at one of the frats which requires discipline, the Student Judicial System is responsible for determining if action should be taken. According to Edward Shanahan, dean of students at Wesleyan until last fall, "Fraternities fell on hard times about four years ago and since then have regained some ground, largely because of improvement in their behavior." He adds that during that period, many of the houses have been "spruced up," and there has been a decline in the destructive activity and negligence that had resulted in some of the houses being in poor shape. Shanahan says that there have been "occasional rallying calls" to disband fraternities, but no widespread movement to do so. "Fraternities have a fairly significant influence on social life, but they do not dominate campus social life," Young maintains. "The attitude of this campus would not permit that. There are too many other groups," Young says, including student government which is "very strong" at Wesleyan. Shanahan agrees that fraternities are only one of several social alternatives at Wesleyan, and points to a strong residential housing program as another. Residential advisers (all students) live in the dormitories, apartments, and other campus housing units and are responsible for setting up social activities, including parties, lectures, discussion groups and recitals. Funds for these activities were originally provided by the University, but are now made available through student government from the student activities fee. In addition to fraternities, Wesleyan has a number of special interest houses, including language houses, Ecology House, Volunteer Community Service House, Malcolm X House, Jewish House, and Feminist House where students live and organize cultural activities for both the residents and the community. There is no student union building at Wesleyan, though one is now under construction.

WESLEYAN: Laissez,faire At its height in the 1950's the fraternity system at Wesleyan University included twelve national and one local fraternity. Currently Wesleyan has six all-male fraternities with national affiliations and two coed houses, one of which is nationally affiliated. Two of the all-male houses took women for a period, and then returned to single-sex status. About 250 of Wesleyan's 2600 students belong to the eight houses, and about 185 of them live there. Students who are not members can opt to eat their meals at fraternities and this is an important source of additional income for some houses.

WILLIAMS: Abolition


In 1962, the trustees of Williams College voted that the school assume "complete responsibility for providing housing, eating and social accommodations for the entire student body in units owned and operated by the College." Since these functions had traditionally been provided for many students by fifteen , privatelyowned fraternities, the decision marked "the beginning of the end" of the fraternity system at Williams. The trustees' decision followed a six-month study by a committee composed of trustees, faculty, alutnni and students which had unanimously concluded that the fraternity system exercised a disproportionate role in campus life and militated against the educational purposes of the institution. Shortly after the vote, a College committee began work on establishing a new residential h ousing system which was inaugurated in 1963 and which persists, with some modifications, today. Between 1962 and 1968, nine of the fraternities discontinued operations while six chose to carry on as "purely fraternal groups," with their activities limited to chapter meetings. In 1968, the trustees requested that these six groups cease operations upon the graduation of current members. All but one of the fraternity houses were made available to the College; the other became Williamstown Town Hall. Some of the buildings were converted into student housing while others became academic centers or offices. In 1976, the Williams trustees reaffirmed their stand against fraternities in response to intervention by one national fraternity which had re-established ties on campus, and rumors that other secret groups were forming. The fraternity immediately disbanded and, according to Raym-o nd Boyer, director of public information at Williams, "There are no secret fr aternities at Williams and, if one were to surface, it would be dissolved by the College." The fraternities were replaced by a residential housing system for upperclass students. (Freshmen are

housed together as they were before fraternities left the campus.) In mid-year, freshmen enter a housing lottery and by a "combination of choice and chance" are assigned to a house where they will reside for the next three years. The houses, which vary in architecture and ambience, accommodate forty to fifty students and are coeducational. The house system is the crux of social life at Williams, with houses spo~soring activities solo or in tandem. Students have their meals at one of three central dining rooms. Most of Williams 1950 undergraduates live on campus. Boyer says that the College has indications that "a significant number of students choose to come to Williams because it is known as a place that does not have a fraternity system." He points out that this fact is included in promotional material used by the Admissions Office. He describes the results of the decision to ban fraternities, in terms of alumni support, as "incredibly encouraging," noting that the Alumni Fund increased from $730,000 in 1970 to $1.74 million in 1980, with 62.5 percent participation, at the same time the College was raising $51 million in a capital campaign. â&#x20AC;˘

WOMEN'S SWIMMING-===:==:==:= The 1982-83 season saw the women swimmers finish as Trinity's most successful team in a winter sports season that was filled with success. Coach Chet McPhee's squad roared through the regular season with an unblemished 10-0 record, the first ever undefeated swimming season at Trinity. In the process, 18 college records fell (leaving only 5 untouched) as the women beat such traditional powers as Southern Connecticut, Southeastern Massachusetts, and Tufts for the first time. Perhaps more impressive than the undefeated season is the fact that seven Trinity women have already qualified for national competition and an eighth is very

close. Whether ultimately seven or eight in number, it will be easily the largest contingent representing Trinity at a national swim meet. Lulu Cass and Laura Couch won All-American honors last year and have a chance of repeating. Transfer Dea Fredrick, a national Division II champion two years ago, has qualified in nfne events, and she will be in contention for the 50-yard freestyle championship. Debbie Cronin, Barbara Brennan, and Virginia Finn all have All-American aspirations as well. Rounding out the Trinity team at the nationals will be diver Mary Ellen Foy with Karen Hubbard

being only a fraction of a second away from the qualifying standard. Concerning the future of the women's program, one would have to say that the prospects look very good. Only two seniors, captain and inspirational leader Anne Ward and Cindy Brierley will be departing. In addition, two-time All-American Martha Belcher should be returning to the team after a year abroad. This, combined with coach McPhee's fast-growing reputation as a recruiter, should make Trinity a New England powerhouse and a possible challenger to unseat Williams as the dominant force in women's swimming.

MEN'S SWIMMING:::::::=:===:===:===:::= The Bantam swimmers started out with a thin team, lost captain Doug Gray (holder of four Trinity individual records) and standout distance swimmer Chris McCarthy, and still ended the season with a winning 6-5 record. Under the circumstances, coach Chet McPhee felt that the season was a success. Five Trinity swimmers - Rex Dyer, Tim Raftis, Chip Lake, John Harrington and Scott Keilty -will compete at the New England meet with Dyer h aving a good shot at coming away with all-New England honors. Keilty, a four-year letterman as a diver, will be greatly missed next year, but most of the rest of the team returns intact. With the continued improvement of young swimmers such as Greg Accetta, Bob Anderson, and Dave Mugford along with a strong freshman class, Coach McPhee feels that the Bantams could be a formidable foe for any of their opponents next year.

On the one hand, this hockey season would have to be considered a disappointment. The Bantams were on the verge of making the E.C.A.C. Division III playoffs but lost two close games down the stretch to Wesleyan and lana. For seniors T. R. Goodman, Mike McCarthy, Ander Wensberg, Glenn Scanlan, Kevin Slattery, Steve Solik and Brian Dorman, it was a tough way to go out despite outstanding personal accomplishments. Captains Goodman and McCarthy were the team's second and fourth leading scorers, respectively. Goodman's 31 points were a career high, while McCarthy's 23 points placed him amongst the leaders of New England defensemen. Wens berg, Scanlan, and Slattery, hard-checking defensemen all, helped to keep th e heat off of goaltender Solik. After taking last year off to concentrate on his studies, Solik returned to the form that made him the team's M.V.P. two years ago. Dorman, a captain for an astounding three years, sat out most of the season with an injury. He made it onto the ice for just one game but was able to make an important contribution in the Bantams' triumphant, season-ending 9-5 win over Connecticut College. On the other hand from the disappointment is the tremendous potential that this year revealed. Aside from the seven seniors, the Trinity team is almost wholly made up offreshmen and sophomores. Freshman wing Vern Mayer led the team in scoring with 32 points and proved himself a strong candidate for Rookie-of-the-Year honors. Classmates Richard Stetson and Tom Sheehy emerged as potent scoring threats in the latter half of the se.ason, and Vince Laurentino sh owed signs of being a top-notch goaltender for the next three years. What's more, Reed

Whitmore and William Slaney, also freshmen, were hurt for much of the year and never got a real chance to display the full capacities of their talents. Sophomores Barney Corning, Michael Sload and Chris Downs also played very well. Granted, the seniors will undoubtedly be missed, but with all the young talent that the Bantams have, head coach John Dunham can hardly wait for next year.

WOMEN'S SQUASH=.::::==:==:==:== The women's squash team continued its tradition of excellence under the tutelage of first-year coach Becky Chase. Finishing the regular season with a 9-3 record, the women netted fifth place at the Howe Cup, the equivalent of a national team championship. The fifth place finish, quite respectable in itself, is made even more impressive when the competition is considered. Trinity is the only small school among the nation's top five, and the Bantams are quite able to hold their own against the likes of Princeton, Harvard, Yale and Penn. Junior Nina Porter leads the Trinity contingent. She is currently the nation's second-ranked player, her only two losses coming at the hands of top-ranked Alicia McConnell of Penn. Sophomore Kat Castle is ranked eighth, and both she and Porter will attempt to repeat their All-American status at the Nationals. Castle and Porter will be joined at the Nationals by Trinity's number three and four players, Laura Higgs and Lea Spruance. Nancy Bogle, the team's only senior, was cited by coach Chase for her outstanding play at number six. According to Chase, Bogle played her best squash ever this year and provided the team with an excellent leader.

MEN'S SQUASH===:===:===:===:===:== The men's squash team finished the regular season with a record of 14-3 and a place among the nation's top five teams. This is even more impressive considering first-year coach David Miller and his team accomplished it all with a squad comprised entirely of freshmen and sophomores. The top three places were handled admirably by sophomores Bill Doyle and Mike Georgy, and freshman]. D. Cregan. Doyle was an All-American last year, and he stands a very good chance of garnering repeat honors at the national tournament this year. The top three players, joined by Sandy Monaghan, Doug Burbank, and Jerome Kapelus, will all compete at the Nationals as the Bantams will be shooting for a high ranking in the six-man team tournament. Highlights of the 1982-83 season included a pair of very close S-4 contests. In the first, Trinity fell to Ivy League power Yale, but came back later in the year to defeat Williams. Both matches were extremely exciting as the outcome came down to a single, final game in each match.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL ===:===:===: Near the halfway point in the season, Karen Erlandson's women hoopsters had a 7-4 record and were in the midst of a three-game losing streak.

Prospects for a repeat of last year's NIAC championship did not look good at the time. The Bantams rebounded miraculously, however, and reeled off nine straight victories on their way to a record sixteen victories against only four losses. The win streak was gloriously culminated by a second consecutive NIAC tournament title. Trinity was led by sophomore captain Karen Rodgers. The aggressive point guard, a three-sport star at Trinity (also soccer and lacrosse), led the Bantams in scoring (14.6 PPG) and assists (5.2 APG) and was second in rebounding (6.2 RPG). The team's rebounding leader was Jeanne Monnes (9 .3 RPG) who came along nicely as the center after having sat out last year. She started out slowly but finished with a 10.8 points-pergame scoring average. Also scoring in double figures for th e well-balanced Bantams were junior Karen Orczyk (10.4 PPG) and freshman flash Sheila Andrus (11.4 PPG). Trinity has compiled a record of 31-10 over the past two years and they have done it primarily with young players. Only one senior, valuable third guard Terrie Johnson, will be lost to graduation. Moreover, the Bantams of 1983-84 will welcome back Chris Lofgren, last year's MVP, after a year abroad. In short, Trinity should be nothing less than awesome next year. HIGH-FLYING Sheila Andrus averaged more than 11 points per game as a freshman for Trinity's 16-4 women's basketball team. 37

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


The Bantam basketballers finished the season with a fantastic 22-3 record, the most successful hoop season at Trinity since before World War II. During the course of the year, Coach Stan Ogrodnik's charges set a new record for points scored (1995), tied the record for consecutive wins (12), and were invited to E.C.A.C. Division III tournament for the second time in three years. All in all, one would have to say that 1982-83 was a near-complete success, especially when considering that most insiders looked upon this season as a building year at the outset. It was a building year because Trinity had lost four seniors - Carl Rapp, John Meaney, Jim Callahan and Roger Coutu- who had been standouts for four years. To be sure, Trinity had some talent returning with the likes of Dave Wynter, Jim Bates and Tom King, but the freshmen had yet to be seen and senior center Steve Bracken was still an unproven commodity. As it turned o ut, the veteran starters played even better than expected and freshman forward Ken Abere established himself as a strong contender for Rookie-ofthe-Year honors, but it was the emergence of Bracken that was the most pleasant surprise of the year. He proved to be a dominant defensive force in the middle of the Trinity zone as h e blocked an impressive 58 shots in 22 games. In addition, he was the Bantam's top rebounder, pulling down an average of 7. 5 boards a game. One of the most notable features of this year's team was its unselfish, team-oriented style of play. Despite breaking the season scoring record and averaging 79.8 points per game, the top scorer, Jim Bates, had an average of only 13.1 points per game. Two other Bantams, King (12.4) and Abere (12.4), averaged in double figures while Wynter and Bracken scored 9.9 and 9.0 points per game, respectively. Seniors Ron Carroll (3.9) and Pat Sclafani (3.1), junior Kerry Sullivan (3.5), and freshman Bill Pfohl (7 .4) provided ample support from the bench. Trinity will be saddened at the departure of the four seniors. They have been vital cogs in the ongoing success of Bantam basketball. Wynter, in particular, will be long remembered for his crowd-pleasing ballhandling skills and breakaway slam dunks. These seniors were instrumental in bringing to Trinity a 1982-83 season that, despite a disappointing season-ending loss to R.I. C. in the E.C.A.C. finals, was an overwhelming success. And with the return of talented players such as Bates, King and Abere, coach Ogrodnik and his team can look forward to the continuation of that successful trend.

SKI TEAM==:============== This year marked the fourth season of competition for the Trinity Alpine Ski Team. An entirely student run organization, the team competes in weekly meets in the New England Intercollegiate Ski Conference, facing teams from such schools as Brown, Amherst, Boston College, UMass, UConn, Army, and Plymouth State. Top skiers for the men were seniors Glenn Ratcliffe and

Todd Clark, while the women, in their first year of competition, were led down the slopes by T ricia Maxon and Leslie Pennington.

FENCING===::============== The men's fencing team, after a 4-8 regular season, tied for the New England championship on the basis of points but lost the title to Brandeis by two touches. Top men's fencers were Vladimir Dimanshteyn and Dan Schlenoff, both of whom won over 90 percent of their matches. For the women, 8-5 on the year, the top fencers were Cathy Wallert and Mei-wa Cheng. Both teams were captained by Ellery Brown. The fencing team is optimistic that next year will be even better as they have recruited the services of Uriah Jones, a very highly-respected coach.

WRESTLING-===:===:===:===:===:===::::= Fielding a full team for the first time in six years, Trinity's young matmen wrestled to a 1-8 record. Despite the record, however, the season was considered a success by coach Mike Parr. H e was pleased by both the Bantams' full contingent and the fact that nearly MR. EXCITEMENT! Dave Wynter shows one of the many ways that he thrilled Trinity fans over the past four years.

everyone who started the season finished it. Midseason attrition had been a major problem for Darr in recent years. In addition, almost all of the squad members were freshmen and sophomores, making future prospects seem bright indeed. On the mat, Trinity was led by a co-captain and three freshmen. Junior Mike Howe (142lbs.), rebounding from a series of injuries, won three of his last four matches to finish the season with a 4-5 record. in dual meets. Freshman Joe Adam (177 lbs.) h ad the team's best record with a 6-3 mark, followed by classmates Nick Veronis (134lbs.) and Will Thomas (190 lbs.), both of whom posted 4-5 records. Howe and Adam won places for Trinity at the New England tournament, taking fifth and fourth place respectively. Senior co-captain Sean Darby, hurt for most of the season, came back in the final meet and notched a victory. Although unable to compete, Darby provided inspiration and a voice of experience for the young Trinity grapplers.

Steve Drew also placed for the Bantams, taking a fourth in the 60-yard high hurdles. Dave Barry, Trinity record holder in the 800 meters, was expected to do quite well but was unable to compete because of an injury. For the women, Elizabeth Amrien followed up an AllAmerican cross country season with an outstanding indoor season. Senior captain Wendy Kershner performed quite well in the high jump. A number of promising young women runners make the prospects for the outdoor season look very good.

BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME Five former Bantam basketball greats were inducted into the Trinity Basketball Hall of Fame in a ceremony held in early December of 1982. Francis Ferrucci, '37, John Barton, '56, Kenneth Lyons, '60, Joseph Hourihan, '66, and the late Donald Overbeck, '67, were cited for both their outstanding play and their contributions to the fine tradition of Bantam basketball.

Erhardt G. Schmitt 41 Mill Rock Rd. New Haven, CT 06511

I received a most interesting letter from the Director of Financial Aid, Anne M. Zartarian, about the beneficiaries of our "1916 Memorial Scholarship" for 1982. Here it is, in part: " It is my pleasure to notify you that the following students are recipients of the Class of 1916 Memorial Scholarship for 1982-83: Leigh-Ann Wilson '84, Longmeadow, MA Amy Snyder '84, Swampscott, MA Martin Hancock '85, Manchester, CT Frederick Andreoli '85, E. Hartford, CT. Their success at Trinity is tangible evidence that your generosity makes it possible for us to extend financial aid to highly qualified students unable to afford the full cost of a Trinity education. Without support such as yours, we would be severely limited in our ability to assist such students. In the years to come, gifts from private donors and foundations will become increasingly important as the Federal government reduces its role in the financing of higher education. "We are extremely grateful for your ongoing support and continued interest in students at Trinity." One of the girls, and one of the boys, so far, have written me as Class Secretary for 1916, very interesting letters about their activities and studies. Both students are deeply appreciative of "our" (1916) help, and say that they would be unable to continue at Trinity without "our" scholarship fund. I will be glad to forward copies of the letters to you if you let me know. I wish to express my deepest sympathy personally to BOB O'CONNOR in his great trouble due to his lost eyesight. I know you all feel as I do about it, so perhaps you will write him and Mary, who is caring for him so wonderfully. My own Carol is mending slowly from

her right hipbone fracture last April, and I fully expect to have her with me at the next Half-Century Club meeting in May '83. I hope all of you still on your feet will be there. It is certainly worth the effort. My grandson, Robert Schmitt, is now a "midshipman" at Annapolis, and already on the J.V. soccer team. My youngest son, PETER SCHMITT '60, is his father . I hope Trinity plays Navy someday in soccer. What do I do t hen?! That is all for now. Send some news to your old "scribe." Class Agent: James F. English, Jr.



Class 路 June 1983

Melville E. Shulthiess Taunton Hill Rd. Newtown, CT 06470

May 1983 is fast approaching and will be the occasion of the sixty-fifth reunion of the Class of 1918. From what I can gather also the last formally recognized union of the Class by the College. This momentous occasion has given your SECRETARY cause to do a little reminiscing. The spring of 1917, our junior year, was the last our Class spent together. Things were not the same after our country entered World War I. Soon after afternoon classes were over, the bugle of MORT CREHORE '14 called us to drill almost as soon as the baseball, track, and tennis teams had started to practice. Spare time was taken by inquiries into the first officers' training camp at Plattsburg and other branches of the service. As I recall BRAD BOARDMAN was accepted and received a commission. In the fall of 1918 while at Camp Zachary Taylor I saw his name on the list of those who succumbed to the flu and went over to the camp newspaper and wrote an obituary for a fine man I had known from boyhood. The 1919 Ivy issued our senior year by the Class of 1919 showed more of our Class in the service than on the campus and most of the latter were in service by Commencement. All told, degrees were received by members of the Class over a period of four years: one in 1917, several in 1918, others in 1919 by returning servicemen, and several in 1920 by servicemen who had served abroad. It was with deep regret that we learned of the death of JOE BUFFINGTON. Joe had been afflicted by arthritis for several years. It was Joe who initiated our Class Memorial Scholarship Fund at a Class Reunion with a substantial initial contribution. A recent visit to the College office disclosed the fund now has in hand some $89,000 with at least $17,000 additional in promises. If any Class member hasn't cont ributed or would care to make an additional contribution now or through his will the College would welcome such a gift or bequest. In any event, give some thought to attending our Sixty-Fifth. See you there. Class Agent: Louisa Pinney Barber

Then Japan for two weeks' play at Kobe, where they won back the Seniors' trophy from the Japanese team.

Mother Nature was real good to Trinity's football fans last fall providing excellent weather for our four home games. Your Chairman and SECRETARY enjoyed them from our 50-yard seats provided by the College. A new nattily dressed cheerleaders group added zest to the games. After searching the crowds looking for fellow classmates with no luck, ROGER HARTT and his lady dropped by to say "hello". So at least we saw one. Appreciation is due college radio 89.3 which enabled us to follow the away games during our 5-3 season and third win in a row over those guys down in Middletown. For a change, actually received a couple of interesting bits via U.S. Postal Service! BOB CONDIT writes that he still laments the loss of STAN BELL- his close friend and old AD buddy.

Hi, ho everyone! First a brief report on Homecoming. Saw a lot of friends but few from '35. Spotted SHED MCCOOK from a distance and enjoyed a leisurely chat with OLLIE JOHNSON. Ollie has had a couple of physical setbacks but is coming along and looks and acts well. Had a pleasant reunion with HARRY OLSON and lovely helpmate, Linnea. Meandering about at post-game cocktail party, ended with a technical discussion with JOHN ZIETLOW relative to an income tax question (your SECRETARY'S vast knowledge is derived from (1) preparing annual personal return, (2) working for IRS in personnel for about ten years, and (3) having a daughter and son-in-law currently working in IRS Appeals - and not with me. Thus I'm sure that I was a great help to John.) By the way John, "Good luck." GEORGE WALKER writes that he re-

grets the demise of the New London alumni group and would like to help revive it. . Your SECRETARY was at the Wesleyan game in frigid weather, but saw a most satisfying game. Trin's third straight win over Wesleyan. Saw many friends, but none from '35. BOB LAD's Christmas card enclosed a clipping from the Trenton Times with a picture of Hopewell , NJ Mayor BILL WALKER signing documents for American Education Week . Learned from a high school classmate that BOB FIELD while on a vacation in Florida with wife, Fannie, had visited him. A letter from HARRY OLSON with a generous check for the Warner Scholarship Fund also included the news that his daughter, Marilyn, was married last May to the Rev . Mark M. Beckwith of Morris路 town, NJ . I also received a letter from the Director of Financial Aid advising that Carol Baatz '83 of West Springfield, MA is again the recipient of the Class of 1935 Memorial William H. Warner Scholarship Fund for 1982-83. Your Secretary vainly wishes that his appeals for gifts for that fund were clear and poignant enough to boast even a modest success. With the small number the Class of '35 is not doing well. Our thanks to contributors TOM CONVEY '32, CLIFFORD NELSON and Dr. MICKEY KOBROSKY both of '37. Class Agent: Dr. Orson H. Hart

Gus reported having lunch from time to time with BOB DAUT, BILL JACKSON, BOB SCHULTZ, IKE EIGENBAUER '35, BOB LAU '35, and I.H . (Sis) SAMPERS '35 - quite a noteworthy Trinity group. FRANK ROSTEK, one of our younger classmates, split and sawed about seven cords of wood last winter. Sure beats a health club. BILL HAR路 ING keeps very busy and among other activities is vice president of the Sea Pines Property Owners Association - a timeconsuming job. Betty Haring has recovered nicely from a recent set-to for which we are all grateful. Bill reports a delightful visit with Phyllis Mason and the Tuckers can report the same with enthusiasm. BEN SHENKER is Director of School Health in Middletown, which is his idea of retirement! CHARLIE SUTHERLAND reports a lawyer and a doctor as sons and though he is retired, is Secretary of the Kiwanis Club of Waterbury and Treasurer of the First Congregational

GEORGE LEpAK followed and then, of course, there was BOB KELLEY who took over in 1962. For 20 years Bob reported the news of '37 with devotion and diligence and deserves the four-star award for his efforts.

A note from PRES BLAKE now retired from his Friendly Ice Cream Corp., and busy putting the finishing touches to a large addition he has built to his Longmeadow Shops. Some of the grandfathers have surfaced with this column. First from NOZZlE DIBATTISTA in Norwich who recently retired from his interior decorating business and sent us news of two grandchildren with whom he spends much time. PETE PETERSON enjoyed a banner year in 1982 with two new grandsons arriving to brighten the scene. Peter has two granddaughters in addition to the newly-born members of his family . We received word from ART SHERMAN that he is planning to "slow up not slow down" by stepping down as Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Lancaster, P A. Art, recovered from a bypass operation in May, felt that it was time to ease up a bit from a ministry which has often involved long days and strenuous activity in the work of his parish. Art, who was created an honorary canon of his diocese in 1978, is one of the founders of the School of Christian Stud ies and will continue to serve as dean of the school, leaving some time to travel, visit his children and endeavor to improve his golf game.

40 ARVID ENGEL writes that he has been retired from the Aetna. DICK MORRIS , a Trinity professor of education, emeritus, reports that he spent two periods of the summer in J onesport, Maine where he enjoyed boating off .the coast.

SETH HOLCOMBE reports that he is busy in civic affairs in the town of Granby, being active in the Republican Party and serving on the Zoning Board of Appeals. STAN ENO has been reclaiming part of his patriotic heritage, having been recently accepted as a member of the Gen. Daniel Humphrey Post No. 1 - Sons of the American Revolution and the Admiral Foote Camp No . 7 of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. In the academic field he was elected to a third term on the All-College Senate, from Quinnipiac College. TED KNUREK recently enjoyed his

200th victory as a high school football coach, when Penney High School (Ea:St Hartford) defeated Simsbury, 24-6. Ted has also coached at Weaver High (Hartford) and Plainville High. It should be noted that when he came to Penney the team had won only one of its last 30 games. Among the mentors whom Ted credits for his success were Trinity's Dan Jessee, Ray Oosting and Ralph Erickson. Over more than four decades he still remembers a memorable chewing out from J essee when he made the mistake of looking over his shoulder during a goal line run in scrimmage. Ted looks back with satisfaction on his career. But he wishes today's scholastic coaches were a little more dedicated. "If you're not in love with coaching, you don't belong in it," says Ted.

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to try to write a better Class Notes for 1983. By making a few New Year's Resolutions yourself you could help make my job a lot easier and make this a more interesting write-up . First, please write legibly. I'm sure you're busy, but often the copies of the cards which you return to the College (that's what I get) are extremely difficult to decipher and translate. Contrary to a popular misconception, the M.D.s in our class are not the worst offenders. Second, try to send something along at least once a year. Births, deaths, marriages, divorces, new jobs, promotions, or moving from Connecticut to Madagascar are not the only newsworthy items. What's the most interesting thing you did in the past 12 months? What did you do on vacation? Did you get back to Trinity at any time during the year? What was your impression of the College today versus when we attended? Have you visited with any classmates, and if so, what news might you have to pass along? With that I'll put my soapbox away for at least another year. DAVE HATFIELD writes from Hyden, KY where he's just taken on the job of Director of Frontier Nursing Service, Inc., associated with the Mary Breckenridge Hospital in Hyden. Frontier Nursing Service serves persons in the middle of the Daniel Boone National Forest, including 5 outreach clinics in three counties, as well as a a school of nurse practitioners and midwifery. Considering the location (about 100 miles southeast of Lexington, and within spitting distance of Cumberland Gap) Dave's probably keeping an eagle eye out for any McCoys in the neighborhood. Good luck on the new job, Dave, and we hope you continue to be a straight shooter. DO 1 SCHLIER has moved to 7112 Edgefield Ct. , Matthews, NC 28110, where he is a quality control analyst with Kemper Insurance Co. Also in the insurance business, FRANK STONE, agency owner of Money Savings Ideas and Associates of West Hartford, reports that he is expanding into 5 new states.

Also in the new arrivals-to-be, JOE FESTA writes that he expects to become a grandfather in January of 1983 (plus or minus ... whatever that means, Joe). Joe is vice-president and general manager of Nustone Industries in North Haven, and is living in Cheshire. BOB GIRARD reports he's recently moved, and is now living in Farmington, CT 06032 at 24 Lakeshore Drive. Apt. B-1.

Tom Hefferon 42 King St. Hartford, CT 06114

Greetings again to everyone in the Class of '82. It was great seeing each other at Homecoming - where was everybody else?? Let's get right down to the news. Now that I complained in the last column about the silence from the grad school front we've been flooded with reports to prove me wrong. UConn is, by far, the most popular choice this year - no less than six of our classmates are grinding away either here in Hartford or in Storrs. In UConn med are ANDY GOLDBERG, RICH BERNSTEIN, JOHN MEANEY, and JOLANTA STEC; at UConn law is KEN PAP A and in the master's in English program is LORI ARDOLINO. There are also quite a number of us in other graduate programs. There's MARK ITALIA, last seen at the Democratic Convention, who's now at UMass-Amherst for chemistry. Along the same lines is DAVE HOWE who's going for his master's in chemical engineering at Tufts in Medford, MA. (Dave also reports his engagement to DIANE NAPERT '81 - congrats!) Also up that way is LAURIE MONTANO who is pursuing her master's at the Boston University School of Social Work. Way out in the Midwest, MARY TOLAND labors at Michigan State for a degree in labor and industrial relations. Not to be outdone, our furthest report comes from BRENDAN MAGAURAN who is earning his medical degree at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, Ireland. He's not alone overseas, however. Trinity has placed two classmates of ours in the Peace Corps: SARAH KINDER is in Sierra Leone and CLAUDIA HART is nearby (?) in Botswana. Halfway around

the world, now more than half done with her Watson Fellowship, is CONNIE SMITH in the wilds of Southeast Asia. Good to hear from you all . Getting very close to home, RHEA PINCUS reports that she has landed the development office internship on campus and is having a great time travelling around the country for her job. In and around Hartford, there is a lot of news. On the insurance racket, DAVE BROWN is a programmer for Aetna, MARCIA HELIN is an underwriter for Connecticut General and RAY TSUKROFF works downtown at Travelers. KAL CHATURVEDI is also in the immediate area, as a programmer for the Dexter Corporation in Windsor Locks. LISA D' ADDEO has taken a job with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and notes that she continues to be very active in a number of area singing groups and AL SUBBLOIE keeps himself busy with the rest of the Trin crew of '82 (SUE ENGDAHL, ANDREI POLUDNEWYCZ, and JOAN SINISGALLI) at Arthur Andersen in Hartford. Also in Connecticut, ROBER COUTU has found a job as a salesman in Avon for Jeannine Fund Raizing. ARMANDO PAOLINO managed the successful reelection campaign for state representative John Rowland. PATTY HOOPER was not so lucky, as she worked for the Rome for Governor campaign. Sikorsky Aircraft has landed two '82ers, JEFF BRODERSEN as a buyer and JOE ADINOLFI as an engineer. Finally, MATT MCLAUGHLIN has continued in his SAGA ways as a production supervisor for Frito-Lay in Dayville. There's still not much to report on from New York and Boston. MARGOT TAMONEY, who is a legal assistant in downtown Manhattan and ROB READING, who's with the accounting firm of C:oopers and Lybrand, are the only voices out of the Big Apple while I have no word from Boston!! The only word which I get from Massachusetts is from ELIN KORSGREN who is a trainee at Zayre's in Chicopee and who was married in July. Speaking of weddings, I have heard that three more of our classmates have been taken away- LINDA JOY RICH TALIAFERRO, TERESA FERRERO HANSEN, and JENNIFER GLEDHILL CROWLEY. Send me more . To wrap it up, KAREN PETERSEN is apparently alive and well and living in Canton, NY. She works in the development office at St. Lawrence College. STEPHANIE PAPPAS is employed at Abbot Labs in Virginia, PHIL PROPPER has enlisted in the army and is a second lieutenant in California, and CAROL RUMERY is with Girard Bank in Philadelphia. Details at eleven. I'm still in Hartford, though I've changed my job. By the time this reaches everyone I will be working up at the State Capitol as a clerk for the Public Health Committee. Well , that's about it. Keep those cards and letters coming - so we'll all know what' s going on. Take care. Class Agents: Patricia Hooper Steven A. Elmendorf
