LETTERS Dear Editor: Regarding the articles on the Watkinson Collection in the Spring, 1985 issue of the Trinity Reporter: in all of our publicity about the Enders Ornithology Collection we mentioned that the collection came to the College fully catalogued. We have failed, however, to give credit to those who actually catalogued the books, although this was done in the preface to the bibliography itself and by Mr. Enders at the celebration in honor of the gift. The project was begun by Mrs. Archer Jackson, former head of Cataloguing at Trinity. When Mrs. Jackson retired in 1974, Nancy D . Grover continued her work. Viola Breit has continued the cataloguing. Mrs. Breit, as has been mentioned before, is responsible for the bibliography of the collection: Ornithology Books in the Library of Trinity College, Hartford. Her editing entailed considerable work in bringing all of the entries up to current bibliographic standards and she saw the book through the press. RalphS. Emerick Librarian
Dear Editor: Your "Quad Wrangles" column in the Spring, 1985 issue of the Trinity Reporter moved me to tears. Here are all these poor students out there who, but for the cutoff of certain government funds, would be applying for admission to Trinity and now they cannot afford to do so . Come, Trinity College, for which you speak; where is that New England independence that made institutions like yours what they are today? Are you so devoid of intellectual resources and innovation that you can't kick your dependency on government handouts for your students? You say that the Reagan administration proposals would necessitate increasing Trinity's financial aid budget by $1 ,000 ,000 annually. If your alumni are earning those higher incomes you mention as a result of their education at Trinity, why not ask them to increase their contributions to be used to provide financial aid for current students? How many graduates does Trinity have? 20,000? $50 a year more from each would make up the lost million and be tax deductible at that. There are other ways to approach the problem, too. If leading educational institutions, such as Trinity College, can't come up with ways to assist the federa l' government in reducing the deficit, I don't know who can. Let's stop the hand wringing and start generating the kinds of ideas for whi ch colleges and universities used to be noted. W.J. Dixon Sarasota,

Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk PAINTER APPOINTED DEAN OF FACULTY
Borden W. Painter, a European historian and member of the Trinity faculty since 1964, has been appointed dean of the faculty of the College. The appointment was approved by the Trinity board of trustees at its May meeting. The dean of the faculty is the chief academic officer of the College. Painter, who has served as acting dean of the faculty since last July, has been appointed for a two-year term. He was the unanimous choice of the faculty committee which sought a successor for Dr. Andrew G. De Rocco, who resigned from the Trinity deanship last summer to become president of Denison University in Granville, Ohio. Commenting on the appointment, Trinity College President James F. English, Jr., said, "Professor Painter brings to the deanship an outstanding record as an educator and an administrator of various programs at the College. I am delighted that he will serve as Trinity's chief academic officer for what promises to be a very busy and important period in the College's life." Painter served as chairman of the history department from 1974-1979, and was elected secretary of the faculty in 1983. He has coordinated Trinity's Elderhostel program in Hartford and in

Rome, Italy, and has also directed Trinity's regular summer program at the Rome campus. Painter graduated from Trinity in 1958 and earned his doctorate in history at Yale University. He also holds an advanced degree from General Theological Seminary. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Painter has done research on popular piety and preaching in 16th century Europe and has received research support from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support this work. He has also done research on various aspects of church history, and in 1981 edited a special issue of the Barbieri Center Courier on Mussolini and Italian Fascism.
COLLEGE WORKS FOR SCHOLARSHIPS Providing adequate financial aid for students in need has been one ofT rinity's top priorities in recent years. However, this activity has assumed a special urgency in light of the proposed federal cutbacks in student financial aid. "The problem was already serious before the talk about cuts," says President James F. English, Jr. "Financial aid is the second largest expense item in the budget and increases at a faster pace than the general rate of inflation. The College's contribution to the scholarship budget has also risen more dramatically than any other source over the past five years."
$29.7 MILLION BUDGET APPROVED At its March meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a $29.7 million budget for 1985-86, including an increase in student fees of $900. For the sixteenth consecutive year, the College will operate on a balanced budget. Next year's tuition will be $9370, room rent is set at $17 30, and board will be $1530. The total bill, including fees, will be $13,100, a 7.4 percent increase over this year's charges. Robert A. Pedemonti, vice president for finance and treasurer, said that the budget "reflects a number of underlying forces that continue to dominate our environment," including higher personnel costs, financial aid, and computer needs. He also noted that T rinity's total charges are still somewhat below the average of those at similar northeastern schools. The fastest growing part of the budget continues to be financial aid, which rose by 19 percent. Trinity will provide a total of $2,409,000 in institutional funds for financial aid next year, including $1,639,000 from the operating budget. The total financial aid allocation, including federal and state grants and special scholarship gifts, will exceed $3.5 million. Salary increases for faculty and staff will rise an average of 6.5 percent. The College will also increase its contribution to the employee retirement program by one percent.
Anne M. Zartarian, director of financial aid, estimates that the proposed federal budget cuts would require that Trinity provide an additional million dollars in its own budget to maintain the currer,t financial aid program, two-thirds of that to replace Guaranteed Student Loans. The College's contribution from general funds is one of three institutional sources for financial aid, the other two being endowment income and restricted gifts. The College's contribution in 1984-85 was $1,380,000, up almost 260% from the 1979-80 figure of $384,000. The amount projected for 1985-86 is $1,639,000, which represents an increase of 19%. In recent years the College has also been successful in improving the investment performance of endowment funds. At the same time the College has been working very aggressively to increase scholarship endowment. With a gift or grant of this type, a record is kept of the principal value added to the endowment, and the income is used for a designated purpose, in this case, a scholarship. Adding to scholarship endowment has become a top priority. Nonetheless, increases in the endowment principal and yield have not been

THE PRESENTATION of a fourth-century Indian play, "The Little Clay Cart," was a highlight of the College's cultural calendar in the spring semester. Celebrated Indian playwright Balwant Gargi, director in residence for the spring term, directed the cast of Trinity students in the play, which was seen by numer路 ous Indian dignitaries and noted playwright Elia Kazan. able to offset increased financial aid expenses. While endowment income contributed 26.3% of all income for student financial aid in 1979-80, it now constitutes only 22.6%. Alfred C. Burfeind '64, associate director of development, notes that the development office is continually pro-
moting the scholarship program in grant proposals. He points out that in recent years the College has been helped by contributions to the scholarship endowment from alumni, parents, corporations and foundations. Outstanding recent examples have been grants from The Arthur Vining Davis
Foundation for $75,000 and from the Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation for $50,000, and the establishment by George M. Ferris '16 of a scholarship fund that may eventually reach $1 million. As a result, the book value of scholarship endowment funds has increased from $4.5 million in 1978 to $6.1 million in 1984. During the same period endowment income increased from $386,00 to $680,000. Another area receiving special attention is restricted gifts. Annually funded scholarships have helped to register an increase in this category. Particularly significant in recent years has been the Capital Area Corporate Scholarship Program, funded by 11 corporations, primarily from the Greater Hartford area. The program provides 23 individual $5,000 grants for each of the four years. Two more scholars and two additional sponsors will be added next year. Gifts from deceased alumni have also helped to increase scholarship funds, Burfeind says, pointing to the Gertrude B. and John R. Reitemeyer Scholarships as an outstanding recent example. "A number of alumni have said they have named the College in their wills," he says, "and that's encouraging news. Others have started life income funds, by which they make a gift to the College, but have use of the income from the gift during their lifetime. After their death, the income is used by the College for scholarship purposes. Still others like George Ferris, the Rev. A. Palmore Harrison '31, Charles M. Jacobson, Jr. '31, Thomas and Lewis Wadlow '33, and Robert D. Coykendall '59, have established their own scholarship funds because they enjoy seeing them work and watching them grow during their lifetimes. The Wadlows started their fund in 1979 with the hope that recipients will want to help others by adding to the fund or by otherwise supporting the College." "Despite great effort and despite the success we have had to date," Burfeind says, "this is still a tremendously important problem. As non-institutional sources, particularly state and federal funding, have declined in recent years, we have had to increase our efforts to build institutional sources for financial aid. It's a real challenge."

But while the personified virtues and vices in the lavishly-staged performances of last spring were costumed just as they would have been in the fifteenth century, the allegorical characters in the recent production sported jeans and tee sh irts, New Wave hair styles and make-up.
The play, titled Homo Genus, is a modern-day version of the saga of an ordinary man trying to get to heaven. In the opening scene, Homo Genus' sins, carefully recorded on index cards, sit in a file box in the center of the stage. As he flips through the list of his misdeeds, Homo Genus singles out a few sins that gave him particular pleasure, as well as a couple that he acknowledges were downright awful. But he knows that unless he is sorry for them all, his soul will be damned. The rest of the play is an account of Homo Genus' struggles, sometimes hilarious, often poignant, to reform his life and repent for his wrongdoings. The large audiences for the play's performances on the terrace of Mather Campus Center were clearly appreciative. The staging was ingenious; the acting, impressive. But even more significant than the achievement of director, cast and crew was the singular accomplishment of the 45-year-old playwright who sat in the front row at each performance. Joyce Baker is a Trinity sophomore. Like many students in the Individualized Degree Program, Trinity's selfpaced degree program for adults, she has taken an untraditional route to get where she is in her academic career. Afflicted with cerebral palsy, Baker has limited control over her physical motions. Her speech is distorted and she gets around in a wheelchair. She uses a machine to feed herself.

would take her several hours to type a single page. Baker graduated from Manchester High School in the 1950s, having received her instruction at home. She thought about college and audited a course at Hartford College for Women, but her handicap, lack of income, and transportation difficulties seemed insurmountable. She heard about Trinity's Individualized Degree Program in 1979 from Jaime Ficks '79, who also has cerebral palsy. Baker vividly recalls the tough battery of interviews by the IDP admissions committee. She was admitted to the program in 1980, on probation, with full financial aid. When she got a C minus on her first paper, for a literature course, Baker was discouraged. "I said to myself, 'If I don't get a B next time, I think I'm washed up.' "She "really poured it on" for her next assignment, and got the B she was striving for. "The professor said that I had proved beyond a doubt I was capable of college work." It was a turning point for her. Baker's lifelong interest in the Middle Ages motivated her to do a study unit (IDP's version of an independent study) in medieval drama with Professor Milia Riggio, followed by a unit for which she proposed writing a medieval morality play. Riggio was so impressed with the work, Homo Genus, that she assigned it for her course on medieval
mystery plays. "In addition to being a good play," Riggio said, "Homo Genus is special because the playwright left the traditional morality play structure intact while adapting it to modern times. It's really very inventive." Riggio's class invited Baker in to discuss her work, and they began to talk about producing it. Matthew Moore '85, a theatre and dance major who directed a play at the Medieval Festival last May, offered to take on Homo Genus. Other class members joined the cast and crew. Baker was thrilled with the production and, like any playwright, was gratified to see the large audiences. Initially unsure about the New Wave concept chosen by costume designer Stephanie Decker '87, she acknowledges that it helped to emphasize the modernity of the story. She was particularly enthusiastic about Matt Moore's decision to add the element of mime to her play. About two weeks after the performances, Baker accepted the Frank W. Whitlock Prize in Drama at Trinity's annual Honors Day ceremonies. What will she do next? "I might try a short story," Baker says. But, as she told a Hartford Courant reporter on Honors Day, "first I have to concentrate on Samuel Johnson, the history of Spain and the empiricists" for her other courses at Trinity.

Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk A PLAYWRIGHT AND A POET One Man's ] oumey Leads to New Understanding
Patrick Henry strode the Long Walk at Trinity this academic year, offered up provocative comments in classes, and made vivid impressions on his fellow students and faculty. But, this Patrick Henry bears no familial relation to the Revolutionary patriot-orator. H e is, rat her, a poet and third year student in American studies at the University of East Anglia, a college of 4,000 students in Norwich, England, which has a formal exchange program with Trinity. H enry's visit was noteworthy in a number of ways. This 47-year-old lived in a dormitory, wrote for the student newspaper, .acted to favorable reviews in theatre arts productions, and served up French fries in the student sn ack bar. He wrote poetry wh ich was published in campus literary magazines and for wh ich he won a prize at Honors D ay. Henry considers himself, first and foremost, a poet. He has publish ed four pamphlets of poetry, given readings and had his works appear in numerous European journals. A high school dropout , Henry is self-educated, a descriptio n which, he notes wryly, is "obviously a kind of conceit - no one is self-educated." A man of great intellectual curiosity and wide-ranging interests, Henry eked out a living for 20 years in a series of jobs throughout Europe in construction, farming, baking, clerking. Henry "dropped out" of society in 1960, wh en "it wasn't really the fashionable thing to do." H e had quit high school at age 16 and wo rked in London as a civil service clerk for two years to escape the small English town he grew up in. After serving in the Air Force for two years, he returned to the government job for one year. But, h e says, "I hated it. I dropped out from sheer desperation, to get away from the boredom of clerical life. I went on the road, hitchhiked down to Cornwall, sleeping in h edges and that, and worked as a dishwash er." From that point on, h e worked in menial jobs, mostly by choice, so that he could write.
"It sou nds really corny, but just at that time that I decided to get out of formal society," he says, "I first wrote a poem." He worked for several years at odd jobs in London in the winter and Cornwall in the summer, before moving to France. There he occupied himself as scriptwriter, interpreter and kitchen assistant in Paris; as antique dealer, gardener, and building assistant in the Dordogne, farm laborer in Gascony and near Lourdes, gr ape picker near Avignon and Bordeaux. Occasionally there were jobs more satisfying to his poet's heart. In addition to scriptwriting and production work on small films, he co-translated into English a prize-winning French novel and a study of Celtic mythology. His home base in Paris for many years was the Sh akespeare Book Shop, ru n by a Bostonian who knew many contemporary American writers like Lawrence Ferlenghetti, James T. Farrell and Kenneth Koch, and brought them to his shop for readings. "I did poetry readings, helped to organize them, sold books, cleaned the place, and used to get a bed there," Henry recalls. The owner often called his shop "the free university of Paris," and Henry par- 路 took of a liberal education. "The books were terrific," he says. "I never thought of going to u niversity." Henry's "formal" education began
five years ago as a full-time student at Wales's College H arlech , an adult residential college of 130 students, which emphasizes a revolutionary view of history and literature. "It was founded by Fabian socialists in the '20s," he explains, "to give an education to mine workers and labor union people. It still does some of that but most of the people are like me, sort of drifters who want to get a formal education." His "drifting around" ended with t he growing unemployment of the late 1970s. "I just cou ldn 't get a job doing anything," he recalls. "I did work picking strawberries for 30垄 an hour, like something out of The Grapes of Wrath, really desperate." From College H arlech he enrolled at East Anglia, choosing to concentrate in American studies, partly because of the opportunity to come to America. He chose Trinity for his exch ange year because it was small, near New York and Boston and because h e cou ld get a job during the school year. He did work in Tri nity's food service operation through the year, an experience he enjoyed. American workers he found to be "more positive and less resentful" than their European counterparts. The year's experience as a whole is more puzzling to him. "Having lived in or extensively traveled through several European countries, I find it much harder to adapt to America. The social institutions, the way people run their homes, the way Americans think - more quickly and in d ifferent kinds of concepts - are all different. In Europe there is a common ground." Refusing to be cowed by culture shock, Henry immersed himself in student activities. He wrote for the Tripod every week first semester, took on nine parts in the student production of "Van Gogh ," and submitted new poetry on his American experiences to Trinity's literary magazines. "I did recognize early on that if I was going to survive or prosper here," he says, "I h ad to get involved in things at Trinity outside of studying. Ifl h ad stayed on the fringes of things, I would h ave found it harder going." Despite differences in generation and (Continued on page 6)

outlook, he got along well with his fellow students and his suite-mates in Smith, which is the "quiet" dorm. "They're primarily interested in computers, so my kind of world, writing poetry, is diametrically different to theirs, but we had a positive respect for each other," he says. Following a summer of "flipping hamburgers in a fast-food joint" in his home town of Scarborough, Henry will return to East Anglia for his last year and then another year in its teacher training school. "Quite likely I'll come to America again," he says, "particularly if I'm going to be teaching American studies."
TWO SENIORS WINWATSONS _ 6_
Two Trinity seniors are among 70 college students nationwide who have been awarded fellowships by the Thomas]. Watson Foundation for a year of travel and study abroad. The students are David M. Blyn, an economics major from Rockville Centre, NY, and Floyd T. Higgins, Jr., an American studies major from Newtown, CT. Blyn will study traditional boats and the local conditions which have influenced their development in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Japan. He's had a lifelong interest in boating and helped build two 15-foot skiffs while participating in the Williams-Mystic Program in maritime studies as a junior. "The construction of boats has always been a puzzle that I finally got a chance to learn about at Mystic," Blyn says. After studying Chinese at Yale this summer, he plans to live aboard a fishing junk in Hong Kong's harbor before traveling on to other Asian countries. Higgins will visit churches throughout the United Kingdom, France and Holland to explore European influences on American organ building and determine how tonal styles of organs vary from country to country. "I'm looking for the roots of American organ building. If you really want to study organs, you have to go and listen to them," he says. During his undergraduate years, he sang in the Concert
Floyd T. Higgins and David M. B1yn Choir, was assistant College organist, worked at Austin 01gans Inc., of Hartford and was organist at St. Joseph's Cathedral in Hartford. The Watson fellowships carry a stipend of $10,000 each and were awarded this year to 70 students from 45 private colleges and universities on the basis of their commitment and potential leadership in various fields. The fellowships are awarded annually by the Thomas J. Watson Foundation of Providence, Rl, a charitable trust established in memory of Thomas J. Watson Sr., founder ofinternational Business Machines Corporation.
RUSSELL, TERRY FELLOWSHIPS AWARDED Trinity has awarded fellowships for graduate study to four members of the Class of 1985. Robert A. Moran of Dayville, CT received the W.H. Russell Fellowship which provides a stipend of $800 annually for two years of graduate study in any field. Moran, who graduated with honors in biochemistry and general scholarship, was salutatorian of the C lass of '85. He will attend Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in the fall. Courtland P. Sears III of Manchester, CT was awarded the H.E. Russell Fe!-
lowship, which carries a stipend of $1800 annually for two years of graduate study in a non-professional field. Sears, who graduated with honors in chemistry and general scholarship, was valedictorian of the Class of '85. He will study analytical chemistry at Purdue University in the fall. Elanah Sherman of Waterbury, CT was the recipient of the Mary A. Terry Fellowship, which provides a stipend of $1800 for each of two years of graduate study in the arts or sciences. Sherman, who graduated with honors in religion, intends to study cultural anthropology with an emphasis on religious anthropology. Craig T ateronis of Auburn, MA has received a W.H. Russell Fellowship which provides a stipend of $800 annually for two years of graduate study in an academic or professional field. T ateronis, who graduated with honors in political science and general scholarship, plans to attend law school in the fall.

FACULTY RESEARCH GRANTS AWARDED
A 95-YEAR-OLD, three-story, brick building on Vernon Street gained official recognition in the spring as the College's first s~rority house. Delta Delta Delta Vice President Claudia Baio '86 says sorority members are "really psyched" about their new ten-room home at 66 Vernon and have started redecorating the interior and sprucing up the small yard. Six Tri Delta members will live on the second and third' floors while the first floor has been designated as community space. Recent improvements to the building owned by Rashid Hamid include the installation of fire and smoke alarms as well as new locks. The sorority house is next door to the religion and philosophy building. The Trinity chapter of Tri Delta, which was formed in 1981 and now has 4 7 members, joins five other fraternal organizations with residences on Vernon Street.
The Faculty Research Committee h as announced the awarding of $60,000 to recipients of research grants for 1985-86. Sabbatical leave extension grants have been awarded to Helen S. Lang, associate professor of philosoph y, and William M. Mace, associate professor of psychology. Individual resea rch grants have been awarded to John D. Brewer, associate professor of sociology ; W . Miller Brown, professor of philosophy; and Kenneth Lloyd-Jones, professor of modern languages. A junior faculty research grant has been awarded to John Platoff, assistant professor of music. Lang's topic is "Why Fire Goes Up: An Elementary Problem in the History of Physics." She will trace solutio ns throughout history to the question of why fire is always observed to go upward in the absence of any external force such as a strong wind. She will first analyze the solution in Aristotle's Physics, then trace the history of the idea through a series of m edieval treatments to an early treatise by Galileo which finally replaces Aristotle's explanation with one compatible with Newtonian ph ysics. She will use this case study as an example of the history of ideas in science and examine the question of how one set of principles comes to be replaced by another. Brewer's research topic, "Accumulating Sociological Knowledge," is intended to provide an up-to-date answer to the enduring question of how and to what extent social scientific knowledge

He will examine critically a variety of recent efforts by sociologists to assess and improve their own discipline's capacity for achieving cumulative growth and compare these efforts with earlier work. Brown will revise for publication his book, "Mill's Logic and the Rules of Science: A Study of the Normative Elements in Mill's Philosophy of Science." He will reassess John Stuart Mill's views on induction and his study of language and meaning in light of recent philosophic study of science. He intends to link Mill's views on science and ethics through the concept of rules. Brown says the book should fill a substantial gap since there has been virtually no major work on Mill's philosophy of science during the past 15 to 20 years despite widespread interest in his social and political philosophy. Lloyd-Jones' research topic is "Edition, Translation, Commentary: Dolet's Orationes in Tholosam (1534)." The project, in part, will be a study of Latin rhetorical style in two speeches of the French Renaissance. Particular emphasis will be placed on the surviv?l of classical oratorical techniques as well as
on the humanist understanding of the purpose of rhetoric. Mace will write and edit chapters for the book, "Event Perception: An Ecological Approach," which consolidates theory and research in ecological psychology. Ecological psychology lies in studies of perception but the consequences extend throughout psychology and beyond to 路many allied fields. The book's emphasis will be on understand-ing what people and other animals see, hear and smell in terms of what it takes to live in natural environments. A goal is the elaboration of practical realism which shows how perceiving successfully guides everyday activity. The ecological approach rejects the traditional idea that there are two separate worlds, mental and physical, and seeks to show that there is not an irreducible gap separating the worlds of mind and matter.

Trinity phonothons completed another successful year, recording a total of $135,000 in pledges toward the 198485 Alumni Fund goal of $820,000. The amount raised by the phonothons has steadily increased; last year 40 percent of all pledges were made by telephone. This year the number of cities where phonothons were held increased to 15. Two major phonothons in New York and Boston in October kicked off the 1984-85 Alumni Fund campaign, raising a total of $28,000. In all, 25 phonothons were held in cities across the country, including Boston, Hartford, New York, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Cleveland, Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Minneapolis and Denver hosted their first phoning events this year, with Coloradans coming from all over the state to phone fellow alumni, according to Cathy Cosgrove '83, development coordinator, who organized the phonothons. Callers provided other alumni with news of Trinity and received updates from graduates on their jobs and families. Phonothons manned by students were among the most successful this year, garnering pledges for more than $50,000. Over 120 undergraduates participated, having been recruited by fellow student coordinators in each class. The student callers gave alumni a good opportunity to learn firsthand about activities on campus. Deserving special mention are the following individuals, who supplied phonothon sites and coordinated the events in their cities: Boston -Jim Whitters '62, Jake Brown '53, Karen MacDonald '83, Cindy Flanagan '79; Cleveland- Dick Mecaskey '51; Denver- Dick Lyford '53, Kevin Sullivan '83; Hartford- Joe Riccardo '55; Houston- Jim Graves '71; Los AngelesDave Steuber '70, Mike Gilman '76;

In regard to Professor Wade's article, entitled "Dismantling White Supremacy," in the Fall 1984 issue: Can we afford a basic philosophy which seems so dangerously negative? Reverse discrimination, which he proposes as a "legitimate instrument of social policy," constitutes moral abuse as surely as did the discrimination once practiced against Blacks. Reverse discrimination as practiced against young white males produces undesirable effects ranging from apathy and addiction to mental illness. What an evil waste! Is this a time to demand "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth?" Must we stifle excellence in the U.S.A. by giving preference to minimal qualifications when the appropriate goal would be superior qualifications? Minorities are capable of excellence, and they can be encouraged in .the pursuit of this ideal. Patricia P. Cornell M '79
MORE THAN 250 students, faculty, and other members of the Trinity community attended an evening candlelight vigil in April to protest apartheid in South Africa. Speakers discussed the problems of Blacks in that country, and viable forms of opposition to help effect change.
I enjoyed your recent issue, particularly the article, "Seabury Restored," and the old chapel. I lived in Seabury. I am writing to tell you that on June 17, 1918, Flora Kendall and I were married on Commencement day by President Luther at 9 a.m. Although it was to be a quiet affair, Dr. Luther gave out the news and the old chapel was filled, all men. He had looked into the matter and told us there was no record of any other marriage having been performed on the campus. There is not much purpose in this note, merely to add to your fine article a remembrance. Ralph H. Bent 'IS Delray Beach, FL
What role for the U.S. in the Persian Gulf? By PhilipS. Khoury '71
he Iran-Iraq War has been described as a "war between two barely distinguishable four-letter countries. It is fought with the weapons of the 1980s, the tactics of World War I, and the passions of the Crusades." Iraq launched the war in September 1980, claiming that it wanted a bigger and more secure share of what is known as the Shatt al-'Arab waterway. This waterway lies in the south of the country and Iraq shares it with Iran; for landlocked Iraq, the waterway happens to be its only direct access to the Persian Gulf. In the long conflict between Iraq and Iran over this waterway, Iraq, thanks to British support, had virtual sovereignty over the waterway until the late 1950s. But when the British-backed Iraqi monarchy was overthrown by an army coup d'etat in 1958 and Iraq left the western camp, the Shah of Iran took advantage of Iran's military superiority to demand greater access to the waterway. Years of armed conflict followed, resulting in Iraq's losing its navigation rights monopoly. The waterway issue, however, was more a symbolic claim than a real cause for going to war. Long before the Iranian revolution of 1979, Iraq felt threatened by Iran, a bigger and stronger country with the potential to destabilize its neighbor. Even after Tehran and
Baghdad negotiated an end to their hostilities in 1975 (and seemed to solve the waterway dispute), Iraq felt that it got a raw deal, because Iran was negotiating from a position of strength. Iraq continued to cringe each time the Shah flexed his muscles. Therefore his downfall in 1979 was welcomed in Iraq. Iran was now destabilized by revolution and this created a fine opportunity for Iraq to shift the balance of power in the region in its direction. By the late 1970s the Iraqi regime, led by its strongman, President Saddam Hussein, was interested in acquiring greater influence in the Arab world, especially in the oil-rich Persian Gulf. After Anwar Sadat's peace treaty with Israel in 1979, Egypt lost its role as the leader of the Arab world, and Syria was heavily bogged down in the Lebanese civil war. This gave Iraq the opportunity to assert itself as the new Arab powerhouse. And with the Shah now gone, and Iran rocked by revolution, President Hussein was in the best position to replace Iran as the new policeman in the Gulf. Prompting President Hussein to launch his strike was, of course, Ayatollah Khomeini. One of Khomeini's first acts on coming to power was to call upon Iraq's Shicite Muslim population to overthrow Hussein's secular regime. Remember that his movement

was never intended to be a simple Iranian uprising but rather a total Islamic revolution. Khomeini also had a personal grudge against Saddam Hussein who, under pressure from the Shah, threw him out of Iraq in 1978, where he had lived in exile since the early sixdes for having led demonstrations against the Shah. Khomeini, of course, is an Iranian Shicite Muslim and Saddam is an Arab Sunni Muslim. The history of antagonism between these two major sects of Islam is as old as Islam itself, and has been bloodiest on the borders of Iran and Iraq. Shicites have ruled Iran since the 16th century, while Iraq has been governed by Sunnis for most of its history under Islam. However, a majority of Iraqis are of the Shicite persuasion, although Sunnis hold the reins of power. To complicate matters between the two countries, Khomeini is a religious leader and his brand of Shicite revolutionary militancy clashed directly with the secular Arab nationalist ideology of Saddam Hussein. So the conflict can be viewed as one between rival ethnic groups Iranians against Arabs; between rival religious sects: Shicites against Sunnis; and between rival ideologies: Iranian pan-Islamism against secular Arab nationalIsm. In 1980, Saddam Hussein decided to act before Khomeini did. He calculated that, with Iran in a state of post-revolutionary turmoil, with its officer corps decimated by purges and executions because of its pre-
vious loyalty to the Shah, with its army no longer able to rely on American advisers, with a western embargo on arms and spare parts to Iran, and with Iraq's economy visibly stronger than Iran's after the revolution, Iraq could strike Iran, defeat her army, and topple Khomeini. But Saddam's judgment proved to be tragically flawed. He received bad advice from some of the Shah's own generals who had fled during the revolution of 1979 to Baghdad - advice that suggested that Iran couldn't resist an invasion. And it is likely that the American government also supplied intelligence information to Iraq which suggested that a victory over Iran could easily be secured by a quick strike.
Phases The war has so far passed through five fairly distinct phases. The first was the Iraqi offensive into Iran, launched in September 1980 and ended in March 1981. This phase ended when Iran was able to prevent Iraq from capturing any more Iranian territory. In Phase 2, Iran mobilized its regular troops to try to break Iraq's siege of a number of strategically important Iranian towns. Iran partially broke the Iraqi siege of Abadan, the location of Iran's greatest oil refinery, in late September 1981; and by March 1982, Iran had launched its counteroffensive. In Phase 3, which lasted until the summer of 1982, the Iranians pursued their counteroffensive by recapturing a lot of the territory that Iraq had been occupying. Here, Iran relied heavily on her great manpower
advantage over Iraq - 44 million vs. 14 million.
500,000 Iranian casualties, including an estimated 200,000 deaths - but the war has damaged Iraq's economy more severely.
Phase 4 of the war began in July 1982, when Iran carried the war into Iraq. Iran laid siege to Basra, Iraq's second largest town, but was unable to capture it. Although Iran did capture a lot of Iraqi territory, the most telling blow was the destruction of Iraqi oil refineries and pipelines around Basra, from where much of her oil was exported. Phase 4 lasted nearly two years, until the spring of 1984. Although it looked as if Iran might secure a decisive victory, the net result was a military stalemate- on Iraqi territory, of course! But Iraq had suffered more life-threatening economic losses than Iran. Saddam Hussein felt a desperate need to break the deadlock, and this brings us to the fifth and current phase of the war.
Khomeini used the American hostage crisis as a loyalty test: those who opposed the seizure of the hostages were branded disloyal and eliminated.
Phase 5 we can call the "Tanker War." With Iraq's economy getting weaker and weaker, Sad dam Hussein tried to internationalize the conflict. If he could halt Iran's oil shipments, he might be able to force the Iranians to the peace table. So in April1984, Iraq announced that it would blockade shipping at Iran's main oil-loading terminal, Kharg Island, in the Gulf. When Iraq began attacking tankers, Iran threatened to hit back by closing the Strait of Hormuz, a tactic which if successful, would cut off much of the Gulf oil that is shipped to the West. For a time Iraq's Gulf neighbors and the West feared that they might be drawn into the stalemated conflict. But the tanker war has neither expanded the conflict nor has it forced Iran any closer to the negotiating table. As of early March 1985, the war seems to have entered a sixth phase and reacquired one of its ugliest features: both regimes began indiscriminately bombing civilian towns, including Tehran and Baghdad, leaving countless dead and injured. Iraq hopes this tactic will drive the Iranian masses to oppose the continuation of the war. How long this will go on is hard to tell. The U.N. is trying to get an agreement, but since this war began no international organization or state has been able to get both sides to a negotiating table.
The War's Impact on Iran and Iraq As a result .of 4314 years of warfare, both Iran and Iraq have suffered massive human losses and their economies and infrastructures have been severely damaged. Perhaps as many as 750,000 have been either killed, wounded, or are missing; Iran has suffered more human losses - there may be as many as
Let there be no mistake about it: Iran was able to resist 路 the invasion of a better-trained and equipped Iraqi army and superior Iraqi airforce in large part because of Iran's greater manpower - three times that of Iraq's. But, the grim reality is that the Iranian regime didn't care about its own casualties. Boys in their early teens literally provided the human cannonfodder for Iran's frontal assaults. Massive suicide missions in the name of Islam were launched. Khomeini had filled the heads of these young boys with "visions of paradise," and then sent them to the front to die. Here, Khomeini exploited the martyrdom complex associated historically with Shicite Islam to drive out the Iraqis and to occupy their country.
On the other hand, the Iraqi regime in this war has allegedly used mustard gas and other poisons in battle which were outlawed by the Geneva Convention of 1925. But no one much cares about international conventions in this war! Property damage in Iran amounts to billions of dollars. More than 1.5 million civilians have been uprooted from the war zones and many of Iran's resources for economic development have been diverted into unproductive military expenditures. Some estimates suggest that if the war were to end today, it would take 20 years to complete Iran's reconstruction. Yet, in spite of these massive losses, the war has been very useful to Khomeini, who used the Iraqi attack to consolidate his power and to impose in Iran a radically theocratic state. The invasion allowed him to divert the attention of the Iranian masses away from their internal problems by mobilizing them for a holy war against the "secular infidel," Iraq, now supported by the "devil" itself, the American government. He was also able to destroy most internal rivals who criticized his refusal to negotiate, after Iran took the offen- 路 sive. Incidentally, Khomeini also used the American hostage crisis as a loyalty test: those who opposed the seizure of the hostages were branded disloyal and eliminated. The war has had only a limited impact on Iran's ability to export oil; even the tanker war has not critically interrupted Iran's oil exports. If Iran finds itself with less revenues from oil these days, it is because of the soft international oil market, not the war. In Iraq, most of the destruction has been in the south, in and around Basra; the destruction in Iran
has also been fairly localized to the southeast, around Abadan. But, though the war has proven to be a tragic and humiliating mistake on the part of Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi people have not risen up against their government in protest. The large Shicite population in Iraq, much to Khomeini's dismay, has fought for Iraq against its Shicite co-religionists in Iran. This suggests that ethnic loyalty - the Iraqi Shicites are mainly Arabs - is stronger than sectarian loyalty in Iraq. On the other hand, while most Arab regimes support Iraq, they have failed to take up the Iraqi war as a sacred cause. For the Arabs, Palestine is a sacred cause; Iraq isn't! Indeed, some Arab states actually support Iran against Iraq. Syria, which is Iraq's most dangerous Arab rival, has supported Iran. The Syrians hit Iraq where it hurts most, in the pocketbook, by closing down the major oil pipeline that runs from Iraq across Syrian territory to the Mediterranean. This caused a big dent in the already faltering Iraqi economy. But, just to demonstrate how contradictory this war is, not only has Syria supported Iran, but Israel Syria's mortal enemy - has, too, by sending weapons and spare parts to Iran. Israel sees Iraq as more dangerous to Israeli interests than Iran; and, historically economic relations between the Shah and Israel had been remarkably good. Israel enjoyed Iranian oil and, in return, it supplied technical know-how to Iran. It is this loss of lifesaving oil revenue which has hurt
Iraq more than its 200,000 casualties. Its inability to export large quantities of oil has cut its foreign exchange reserves almost down to the red line, and Iraq is running a huge trade deficit. At this time the Iraqi economy is holding on, and the regime is finally beginning to export more oil by a pipeline through T urkey. Yet, it has been impossible for the Iraqi regime to make the kind of "spiritual, national, and moral capital" out of the war which Khomeini has been able to utilize so effectively. One observer has noted that whereas in Iran the struggle is still one for victory, in Iraq, the struggle is one for survival!
Three Scenarios for the Future Two Brookings Institution experts* have outlined the following scenarios. In the first scenario, a decisive Iranian victory in southern Iraq would establish Iran as "a hegemonic power in the Gulf." Iran would then have a "strong voice in the political and economic decisions of its neighbors." If victorious, it is unlikely that Iran would directly invade the Gulf states or Saudi Arabia (because the U.S. is unlikely to let this happen), but Iran certainly would be in a better position to support the large Iranian populations living in Bahrain, the Arab Emirates, and Kuwait against the Arab regimes there. Bahrain and Kuwait are both Arab states, but each contains considerable Iranian communities. A victorious Iran could weaken and *Material from thetr reports is in quotation marks.

The two superpowers, despite their terrible relations, are lined up on the same side of the fence. That's a rare occurrence! 3. A third argument for neutrality is what one observer has called the "Rip Van Winkle" strain in American political thinking. For some policy makers, it was very difficult to change their old perception of Iraq as a leftist, Soviet-armed exporter of terrorists. Iraq also happened to be the enemy of America's most prized ally in the Middle East - Israel. It was most difficult for these experts and advisers to accept the idea of the U.S.'s developing a friendly relationship with Iraq, no matter how anti-American Iran had become. Thus neutrality became the course. American neutrality in any real sense lasted until early 1983, when the military balance shifted in Iran's favor. Washington's strategic desire to see no victor in that war required a readjustment. To keep Iraq from collapsing, it was now necessary to tilt U.S. policy in the direction of Iraq. American neutrality became an extremely flexible policy. By 1983, one White House official candidly described the resulting balance as a "55-45 percent neutrality" in favor of Iraq. What form did this tilt take?
1. The U.S. encouraged its allies to make major weapons deliveries to Iraq. The French, who arealways willing to sell their arms to anyone who can pay, began supplying Super Etendard jet fighters equipped with Exocet anti-ship missiles for Iraq's tanker war.
2. The U.S. encouraged Iraq's Arab allies to resume financial assistance to Baghdad; and U .S. banks and construction companies became involved in building new pipelines through Jordan and Saudi Arabia to increase Iraq's oil exports. 3. Washington began to apply pressure on our allies and clients - including Israel, South Korea, and Britain - to halt all military-related sales of weapons and spare parts to Iran. 4. Washington ignored Iraq's initiation of the tanker war in the Persian Gulf, even though Iraq hit a lot of innocent shipping in the process. 5. The Reagan administration ordered further planning for U.S. military intervention in the event of an Iraqi collapse. There is, of course, division in Washington over how far to escalate U.S. support to Iraq. More hawkish advisers want to increase the presence of our Central Command forces in the Gulf region (formerly the Rapid Deployment Force). Other advisers are more cautious. So is Saudi Arabia, which fears that an increased American military presence in the

Gulf might create a backlash against the conservative, pro-western Arab regimes. Washington's current view appears to be that if the tanker war escalates, the air forces of the Arab Gulf states should initially be used to reply to Iran, and not the U.S. Air Force. The fact that the Saudis have had the courage to enter into dogfights with Iranian warplanes that threaten Saudi oil shipments through the Gulf has given support to the more cautious American point of view. 6. Most recently, in November 1984, the American government resumed full diplomatic relations with Iraq, at Iraq's request, for the first time since the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. ./1
Future Strategies This has been the U.S. role in the war to date. Let me conclude with a brief assessment of America's present and future options for containing the war. First, it is quite clear that Washington does not consider seriously the option of supporting Iran against Iraq. Simply put, the Reagan administration identifies Iran as the destabilizing force in the Gulf. And, although Iran may be of greater strategic value than Iraq, as long as the Soviet Union is as distrusted in Tehran as we are, we're not presently worried that the Soviets will use Iran as a vehicle by which to enter the Persian Gulf. Also allaying our fears is the fact that the Soviets are having a difficult time holding down Afghanistan, just next door to Iran. On the other hand, should the U.S. directly intervene militarily against Iran? This option, at present, is most unattractive. Iran is not poised for imminent victory over Iraq. Iran has also been very cautious in the tanker war, and there is no immediate threat to western oil supplies. But what would happen iflran attacks those U.S. warships which today are acting as military escorts for oil tankers crossing the Gulf, or if Iran attacks Saudi Arabian oil installations? These sorts of incidents might well shift the balance in Washington decisively in favor of those who want to shore up sagging U.S. prestige in the Middle路 East at Iran's e~pense. U.S. prestige was damaged by the way the Reagan administration handled the Lebanon situation, and the most Hawkish members of the Administration have been looking for a way to demonstrate American strength, particularly against what they perceive to be Iranianorganized and financed terrorist attacks against American institutions and personnel in the Middle East. Should Washington accelerate the American military build-up in the Gulf? This option is certainly available, especially given the Reagan administration's h.ardline defense policies, though there will be opposition from Congress over the budget, and from the Saudis, our most important ally in the region. The Saudis have been reluctant to allow Washington full

The Saudis view Iran and internal dissidents in the Gulf as the main threat in the region, not the Soviet Union, and they wish to avoid provoking further Soviet involvement. The Saudis are stressing to Washington that the military alliance they have organized with the other Gulf states is so far capable of defending oil routes, without American participation. However, if the balance of power in the war shifts toward Iran or internal unrest suddenly grows in Saudi Arabia, and the U.S. decides to intervene, the Saudi monarchy and its friends will certainly faci litate that intervention rather than prevent it. Are there any other ways to increase American leverage over Iran, apart from continuing our tilt toward Iraq? Yes: Washington can try to exploit those areas where Iran seems to be weakest. For example, Iran feels increasingly isolated in 'the international arena. The military stalemate makes Iran increasingly dependent on western supplies of weapons. At the same time, Iran faces a major economic slowdown arising largely from its declining oil exports and earnings - earnings it needs to purchase those weapons. The military stalemate also presents a problem for the Iranian leadership: what does Iran do next to regain the military advantage? If it doesn't do something fairly soon, the regime will have increasing difficulty using the war as a legitimizing instrument or prop. Even if Khomeini does not have to answer to the Iranian people, a prolonged stalemate could still create divisions in the Iranian leadership surrounding Khomeini, thereby weakening the regime. To heighten Iran's vu lnerability, Washington can step up pressure on its allies to trim their purchases of Iranian oil; it can do the same to reduce arms shipments to Iran; and it can threaten to cut off international air traffic to Iran. The U.S. should avoid the following actions: It should not expand its military presence in the Gulf, because this will create greater internal credibility problems for the moderate Arab regimes there. A direct expansion will invite Iran to try new ways of subverting the Gu lf regimes from within, and it may

invite greater Soviet involvement in the Gulf, the last thing the U.S. wants or needs. Also, Washington should not encourage the Iraqi tanker war for two good reasons. First, the tanker war has had very little effect on Iran's ability to export its oil, and it is unlikely to have any in the future. It is the world oil glut and falling oil prices which are damaging Iran's economy, not the tanker war. Second! y, if Washington really wants to isolate Iran internationally, by identifying Iran as the "outlaw regime" in the Gulf because of its role in terrorist attacks, hijackings, and the like, the last thing it should be doing is ignoring Iraq's attacks on a lot of "innocent" shipping. Otherwise, Washington will have to face the real question of whether our new friend, Iraq, is not simply another "outlaw regime" alongside Iran. Finally, from the broader perspective of America's overall Middle East strategy and role, Washington does have another option which can contribute to containing the Iran-Iraq war and to reducing the potential for instability in the Gulf. Washington can pursue efforts to build a new moderate Arab front combining Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Iraq. Such a front will be the most effective way to neutralize the impact of the radical, anti-American regimes in the Middle East, in particular Iran, Syria, and Libya, and to check Soviet ambitions. But to cement an effective, pro-western Arab alii-
ance against Iran, against anti-American terrorism, and against Soviet-backed Arab radical regimes, the U.S. will probably have to move for a major breakthrough in the Arab-Israeli conflict. This means apply"ing pressure on Israel to offer the Palestinians something that gives them the feeling that they are at least partly the masters of their own destiny in their own territory, even if that territory - the West Bank - is linked somehow to Jordan. It is unlikely, however, that the Reagan administration will apply that kind of pressure on Israel, and we can be sure that the Israelis will do all they can to avoid any such pressures. The fragile coalition - or so-called "unity" government - is preoccupied with a dangerous economic crisis in Israel and even talk of returning Arab territory is enough to break apart that coalitiC?n! Such is democracy! Nevertheless, all the signals being sent these days from the moderate, prowestern Arab states to Washington focus on the need for movement on the Arab-Israeli question. King Fahd of Saudi Arabia and President Mubarak of Egypt have visited Washington in recent months and have told President Reagan that anti-American feelings are running strong in the Middle East. This is encouraging internal terrorism and subversion, which threaten to undermine the leadership of Saudi Arabia and the other Arab states that are identified with the U.S. Mr. Reagan might well respond to both Fahd and Mubarak that as long as there is an international oil glut, and Iran is stalemated in its war with Iraq, and Egypt is neutralized by its peace treaty with Israel, and Israel can hold Syria in check, American strategic and commercial interests are fairly secure. And the President is probably correct in the short-term. But can he be certain that four years from now American interests will be so secure? The question remains: does it make more sense for the U.S. to become more directly involved militarily in the Gulf? Or does it make more sense for the U.S. to maintain the balance of power in the Gulf, while it encourages the development of a friendly Arab alliance through some serious American peace initiatives to the Arabs and Israelis? The Iran-Iraq War may seem physically isolated from the Arab-Israeli conflict, but if we are thinking about America's long-term Middle East prospects and strategy, and the security of our allies in the Middle East, the two conflicts are very much linked. To understand this connection, Washington is going to have to be a bit more imaginative and a bit more farsighted! D

midst the traditional speeches and hymns, handshakes and processions at Trinity's 159th Commencement, yellow ribbons pinned on black robes stood out as the C lass of '85's silent protest against racial apartheid in South Africa. As some 4,000 relatives and friends dressed in light summer finery looked on, the College conferred bachelor's degrees on 451 members of the Class of 1985 during the May 26 ceremonies on the Quad. Thirtynine master's degrees and seven honorary degrees were also awarded. This year's undergraduate degree recipients came from 26 states, the District of Columbia and eight foreign countries. More than one-third of the 245 men and 206 women in the Class came from Connecticut. President James F. English, Jr. commended the graduates for the visible, orderly form of their statement against apartheid and said the College joins them wholeheartedly in urging the al?olition of deliberately institutionalized racism. "It cannot be tolerated in any society which aspires to fairness and justice," English said. "We express our particular sympathy for those who are oppressed by it. And we also express our broader sympathy for all South Africans of good will, no matter what their color. They, like our American forbears, have inherited a diseased social system. May they find the wisdom and the will to resolve it to
health and may they be spared the sufferings of their own Shilohs or Antietams." Commencement speaker Ellen Goodman, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, said the graduates' yellow ribbons of protest were a reassuring symbol that they felt a sense of connection with a larger world. Goodman told the Class of '85 to avoid a tendency to burrow into their own lives heedless of the outside world, and to seek a balance between work and play. T oday's graduates are young men and women who hope to have it all, she said. "But I see the pitfalls and I wonder if you'll be able to do it," she said. Goodman sought to dispel the notion that becoming a superwoman or superman, who easily juggles family and career while still finding time to run six miles after work, is a realistic goal. These "superpeople" are the absurd, mythical heirs of individualism run amok, she said. Earlier generations of college graduates, who viewed their degrees as tickets to upward mobility, were told if they followed a predictable course, there would be predictable rewards, Goodman said. But, she added, today's graduates have had to operate amidst great ambivalence and without promise of rewards. "You are the first generation to go to college as a defense against downward mobility," she said. Goodman was awarded an honorary doctor of let-

Connolly, Jr., chairman of CBT Corporation; Dr. Jill K. Conway, president of Smith College; Gary Graffman, a concert pianist; William M. Polk '62, headmaster of Groton School; and Kenyon J. Wildrick '55, senior minister of Community Congregational Church in Short Hills, New Jersey, who gave the sermon at the Baccalaureate service in the morning. This year the senior class gift was actually two gifts; $1, 125 for the Senior Class Scholarship Fund and $2,000 for a sculpture commemorating the admission of the first women students to Trinity in 1969. The work will be executed this summer by Beij, Williams and Zito, Inc. of Hartford. They will use the clay figure of a woman's head made by senior Kitty Brims as
a model for the carving on a corbel above the entrance to Seabury 30-39. One hundred twenty-two people contributed to this year's senior class gift, which was the largest since the practice of giving class gifts was re-established in 1978. In his charge to the class, English told the graduates to accept and nurture the human instincts that lead beyond themselves. "Cultivate a mind that roams creation and a spirit that enters the hearts of others," he said. "Today the people of the world are bound more closely than ever before. The same nuclear pistol is pointing at the head of each of us. But we have a common opportunity. We live in a time when we can dare to think that a sufficiency of food and shelter and medicine for all is not an idle dream and when each of us can help create a world in which freedom, opportunity and self-respect are the birthright of all."

HONORARY DEGREES ARTHUR C. BANKS, JR. First and only president of Greater Hartford Community College, you have put your imprint on that institution and this city as an educator and civic leader. Your lifelong engagement with education began in Jersey City's P.S. 14, with stops for degrees at St. John's University, NYU, and Johns Hopkins. After a distinguished teaching career, you came to Hartford to launch the fledgling community college, which has grown and flourished urider your strong leader. ship. For eighteen years you have successfully threaded your way through the labyrinths of academic governance, state politics, and official bureaucracy,
without ever losing sight of a primary commitment to the quality of your students' education. You have also shared your talents with many other Hartford institutions; Hartford Hospital, the Symphony, the Library, and the Connecticut Natural Gas Company are but a few of those who have benefited from your wise counsel. As you enter formal retirement, you are amply prepared for a continuing and lively life of the mind, given your interest in such diverse subjects as classical music, Judaic studies, and aviation history. For your many contributions to higher education in Connecticut and to civility of life in this city, I have the honor to present you for the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa, Arthur C. Banks, Jr.
WALTER JUSTIN CONNOLLY, JR. You are the dean of Connecticut's bankers. Your dynamic leadership has made the Connecticut Bank and Trust Company the largest bank in the state, and as a nationally recognized leader in .the drive for regional interstate banking, you may soon head an institution which covers much of New England. A Boston native, you learned early about handling money as a youthful hot dog vendor at Fenway Park. You came to banking by way of Yale, the Marines, and the securities business, and in twen ty-four years with CBT you have earned a reputation as a consummate salesman of financial servic~s. Your business acumen, however, has always been tempered by an equally strong social conscience. Your forceful role in addressing local housing problems has brought home ownership and better living conditions to many inner city resi-
dents. The Chamber of Commerce, the United Way, the Arts Council, and St. Francis Hospital are among the many Hartford institutions to benefit from your leadership. Over the years you have earned a reputation for speaking out on controversial public issues from suburban integration to city governance. For your many contributions to the financial, cultural, and civic life of your community, I am pleased to present you for the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, Walter Justin Connolly, Jr.
}ILL KER CONWAY Nurtured to self-reliance in the Australian outback, it is not surprising that you have spent much of your life helping women gain fuller access to so-called men's professions. A scholar who has written extensively on women in history, you were the first female vice president at the University of Toronto. Ten years ago you became the first woman president of Smith College, which you have made into a "honing ground" for women achievers. Your uncommon brand of leadership has revitalized Smith's mathematics and computer curriculum, created a dual degree in liberal arts and engineering with the University of Massachusetts, and rejuvenated the athletics program. You have also launched one of the nation's finest programs for women students who do not fit the traditional undergraduate mold. A staunch defender of the liberal arts, you are also proclaimed as a fund-raising genius. When not cultivating alumnae or corporate America, you indulge your passion for gardening, affirming your belief that a life of action is as important as the life of the mind. Though one of the most influential women in academe, you exercise power not for yourself, but for future generations of women. For your lifelong dedication to helping women of all ages realize their full potential, I have the honor to present you for the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa, ]ill Ker Conway.
craft a sensitivity and wit that humanize your views of the American scene. You came to newspapering from Radcliffe College and have subsequently earned two of journalism's highest honors: a Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary and a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard. You wrote your first column for the Boston Globe in 1971; today your musings on the ambiguities of life appear in 325 newspapers. Though you tackle controversial issues, you do so with sanity rather than stridency and are more concerned with conflicting values than with competing ideologies. In your own words, you write as a person, not a pontificator. For your cogent insights and entertaining observations on our lives and our world, I have the honor to present you for the degree of Doctor of Letters, honoris causa, Ellen Goodman.
GARY GRAFFMAN For more than thirty years your elegant piano technique has dazzled audiences throughout the world. Acclaimed as one of the great keyboard artists of our time, you won special favor for your sonorous renditions of the Romantic concertos. In 1979, your performing career was interrupted by an injury to your right hand. With impressive dedication you have since made yourself the world's most distinguished single-handed pianist, mastering the Wittgenstein repertoire of music for the left hand. That same streak of determination appeared earlier in your career when you refused to play in a segregated Mississippi auditorium, setting an example soon adopted by other performers. More recently you have proved you have an ear for words as well as music: your book, with the wry title "I Really Should Be Practicing," has gone through three printings. Your virtuosity encompasses an active teaching life, expertise in Oriental art, and a reputation as connoisseur of exotic vodkas. For your zest as a performer and your inspirational response to adversity, I have the honor to present you for the degree of Doctor of 路Music, honoris causa, Gary Graffman.
ELLEN GOODMAN WILLIAM M. POLK One of the nation's most perceptive commentators, you have mastered the art of probing public issues from a personal perspective. Though you claim it takes only nerve and endurance to be a columnist, you have brought to your
As a Trinity undergraduate you rivaled the legendary Frank Merriwell: Phi Beta Kappa, class president, letter-winner in three sports, honors in religion and history, and batting champion. Small
wonder that today you serve as headmaster and role model extraordinaire at the Groton School, which this year marks its centennial as one of the nation's leading independent secondary schools. Before making your lifelong commitment to education, you earned a Master's degree in Divinity at Union Theological Seminary and spent a year in Greece as a teaching fellow at Athens College. In 1966, you joined the faculty of the Lawrenceville School where your talents were honed over the next twelve years in roles that included teacher, dean, counselor, coach, and chairman of the religion department. Seven years ago, after a nationwide search, you were named headmaster at Groton. Your service to education also includes a sixyear term as trustee of this College. The early promise you demonstrated as an undergraduate was obviously just the first chapter in a lifetime of overachievement. For your distinguished service in the cause of education, I am pleased to present you for the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa, William M.Polk.
KENYON] . WILDRICK For nearly three decades you have tended the needs of your parishioners at the Community Congregational Church in Short Hills, New Jersey. Yours is a vital ministry, built on social action and service to the larger community. Among your innovative ventures have been a scholarship program for local minority students, housing for special children in Japan, and a series of spiritual journeys through Europe for your congregation.

An education with a future By Joseph D. Bronzino The degree to which clinical engineering will be successful depends on the type of educational program its future practition~ ers select. n a short time technology has affected every facet of society. This is particularly true in medicine and the delivery of health care services, where solutions to many problems confronting health care professionals involve application of the fundamental aspects of device and systems analysis and design, which are the domain of the engineer. As engineers have become more closely involved in medical ventures, biomedical engineering has emerged as a vital discipline, with the objective of assisting in the struggle against illness and disease by providing tools and techniques for research, diagnosis, and treatment. Biomedical technology demands the education of an exciting new breed of engineering professionals who can implement these tools and techniques in cooperation with other health care professionals, inside and outside the hospital. Within the past decade that call has been answered by the clinical engineer, who has become an integral part of the health care delivery team. As we approach the 1990s, many challenges await aspiring clinical engineers, challenges that can only be met through proper education and training. To understand what that educational framework should be, we need to look first at what clinical engineering is and is not, and how it has evolved during the last decade.
Defining the Differences There is general agreement that engineering and technology contribute significantly to effective and efficient health care. But conflicting opinions arise about differences among various areas of medical technology, such as bioengineering, biomedical engineering, and clinical engineering. Bioengineering is usually viewed as a basic researchoriented activity that uses tools and concepts of the physical sciences to analyze and understand the fundamental mechanisms of biological systems. © 1984 IEEE. Reprinted, with permission from IEEE POTENTIALS, Vol. 3, No.4, pp. 30-32, December 1984.
Biomedical engineering is the most comprehensive of the three categories. It is defined as that branch of applied science concerned with solving and understanding problems in biology and medicine using principles·, methods, and approaches drawn from engineering science and technology. It is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering. It can range from theoretical, nonexperimental undertakings to state-of-theart applications. It can encompass research, development, implementation, and operation. One person cannot acquire expertise in the entire field of biomedical engineering. As a result, a number of specialties have evolved, which cover the broad spectrum of its activities. Clinical engineering is one important subspecialty that deals specifically with clinical aspects of health care.
Coming of Age in the 1970s Engineers were first encouraged to enter the clinical scene during the 1970s in response to concern over patient safety and accelerating medical costs. Their primary mission was to assist the health care team to provide better care at reasonable costs. During this same time a major expansion occurred. The Veterans Administration became convinced that clinical engineers were vital to the overall operation of their hospital system and divided the country into biomedical engineering districts, with a chief biomedical engineer overseeing all engineering activities within the hospitals in that district. Throughout the United States, centralized clinical engineering departments were also established in most large medical centers, hospitals, and some smaller clinical facilities (having a minimum of 300 beds). Clinical engineers were hired to help these facilities use existing technology and incorporate new technology. In the past decade the clinical engineering functions have continued to grow as the engineer's role in the hospital has gained importance. Clinical engineers have performed a variety of tasks, including: • the supervision of the operation of instruments • the design of engineering systems and components of systems not commercially available • the specification and purchase of new equipment • the training of staff in the proper use of new equipment
â€˘ the introduction of systems analysis and computer concepts to optimize information handling. Consequently, clinical engineers provide both technical and engineering services for other members of the health care team. In the process they have demonstrated the knowledge and experience needed to work with other health professionals in planning and implementing appropriate programs to improve the delivery of health care. This acceptance of clinical engineers in the hospital setting has also led to new types of engineering-medical interactions that can impact favorably on health care delivery. For example, in addition to supervising the activities of clinical engineers within their facilities, the chief of a centralized clinical engineering department plays another significant role. He or she
both ensures that medical equipment is maintained and certified as safe and becomes a resource for the hospital, someone who is familiar with and knows how to use all available technological resources and shared services effectively to accomplish any medical task. The in-house availability of such talent and expertise helps the hospital take advantage of its technological resources.
Educating for the Future Clinical engineers can indeed point with pride to an impressive record of achievement. However, as we prepare for the decade of the 1990s, we should examine the type of educational program necessary to meet the demands of the future.
A student interested in clinical engineering should obtain a master's degree in biomedical engineering in conjunction with a clinical engineering internship. An example of one such in-depth program is the clinical engineering internship program established in the region of greater Hartford, Conn., in 1974. Initiated by the cooperative efforts ofT rinity College, the Hartford Graduate Center, and Hartford Hospital, this hospital-based, two-year program has evolved to include Hartford Hospital, the Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, the Dempsey Hospital of the University of Connecticut Medical School, and the VA Hospital in New Haven. A typical study plan would include the following courses: • applications of physics in biology • anatomy and physiology. At least two courses in one particular engineering discipline would also be included. For example, if the student were interested in signal processing, then at least two of the following courses would be selected: • concepts of computer systems for engineers • information theory and coding • digital communications
• digital signal processing • human interaction with computers. At least four of the following courses would also be included: • electrophysiology of the central nervous system • biomaterials • biological control systems • biomechanics • computer applications in medical technology • anatomy and physiology • clinical engineering fundamentals • bioinstrumentation , • medical imaging. A minimum requirement of 30 credit hours would be completed with a six-credit hour thesis/project in the biomedical area.
Firsthand Experience In addition to this typical engineering curriculum, students interested in clinical engineering need to be exposed to the hospital environment. Such firsthand experience permits them to observe the operation of specific medical instruments, the environment in which they are used, and the people who use them. The nature of this hospital experience may vary. Some institutions require that students become involved in a hospital project for one to two "months; other institutions insist on a one-year involvement. Some programs suggest that clinical engineers do an internship, much as doctors do, so they can learn the intricacies of their profession in a very personal manner. Programs that provide such an educational opportunity expose students to the real world in which the clinical engineer functions.
Trinity Students in the Field Professor Joseph Bronzino notes with pride that onethird of the people who graduated from the master of science clinical engineering program at Hartford Graduate Center returned in March for a tenth anniversary dinner. Bronzino, who developed the master's program, explains that the anniversary dinner provided more than a chance for alumni to get together. It gave students who are now in the clinical engineering internship program an opportunity to develop important contacts with professionals in the field. · Out of 27 graduates from the two-year internship program, some now work in private industry, one started his own medical instrumentation business, others work in hospitals and one is now a physician. About one-third to one-half of the people who enroll in the Hartford clinical engineering program hold bachelor's degrees from Trinity. Some 15 engineering majors and 30 engineering-computer coordinate majors graduate from Trinity each year. They're the kind of people, according to Bronzino, who make good candidates for the master's program in clinical engineering. He says the program is good for graduates who want to keep their options to medical school open or those who want to apply their engineering knowledge in the health care field. Trinity undergraduates who choose the interdisciplinary program in biomedical engineering take engineering, math, biology and physics courses. In addition, they have access to biomedical engineering courses at Hartford Graduate Center. Other student opportunities include work at Hartford Hospital, St. Francis Hospital, and the UConn Health Center. "We have taken full advantage of the medical-rich area we are in," explains Bronzino, who started Trinity's undergraduate program in biomedical engineering in 1969. For some students, an independent study internship may kindle an interest in a career as a clinical engineer or a doctor, he says. This practical internship experience frequently gives u ndergraduates a sense of self-confidence they can't get through books, Bronzino adds. "Trinity students have
At the Hartford Graduate Center (HGC), the primary objectives of the program are: 1. To expose students to hospital organization and administrative functions. 2. To provide students with hospital experience in clinical engineering, that is, to provide students with an opportunity to apply engineering techniques to patient care and hospital-based research. 3. To provide students with substantial experience in working with hospital personnel, including administrators, nurses, technicians, and other medical staff. The internship consists of two phases: a rotation through most of the hospital departments during the first year, and in-depth involvement with a clinically oriented research project during the second year. Because the program requires the student to spend 20-25
performed so well on independent study internships that we've got more requests for undergraduate interns than we have students," Bronzino says. On his visits to the hospitals, Bronzino is often approached by physicians who want Trinity interns to work on engineering problems. Two 1983 Trinity graduates, who recently graduated from the master's program in clinical engineering agreed that the experience of working in a hospital setting was the program's most valuable aspect. During the two year program, Glen R. D'Abate and Robert M. Smith took courses in biomedical engineering, rotated through various departments of the hospitals where they spent their internships, and worked in clinical engineering labs. In the second year they completed thesis projects which required them to apply their skills to an engineering problem at the hospital. Smith built an automatic exposure control system for use with portable X-ray machines that are used on premature infants. D'Abate did a study on computer automation of the evoked potential lab where studies are done on nerve pathways. D'Abate says an undergraduate course on the electrophysiology of the central nervous system taught by Bronzino sparked his interest in biomedical engineering. As a senior at Trinity, he realized that the idea of helping mankind through biomedical engineering was more appealing than making jet engines. D'Abate h as now completed his clinical engineering internship at St. Francis Hospital and will work there this summer before moving on to a position in private industry in medical instrumentation. Smith, who graduated with honors in engineering from Trinity, will start medical school in August at the UConn Health Center where he completed his clinical engineering internship. For him, the master's program was an excellent stepping stone to medical school because it gave him a chance to find out - by close observation - what it's like to be a physician in the hospital setting. "It's a good program for people who want to get involved in a broad spectrum of applications of engineering in medicine," Smith says. "I'd rather do engineering that applies to medicine. It has a human element." -Martha Davidson
hours per week working at the hospital during the entire two academic years, with the remaining time concentrated in classroom activities, there is ample time for thorough indoctrination in hospital operations and procedures. While being immersed in the clinical environment, the student generally also takes two graduate courses each semester for four semesters. The student can select courses that are most applicable and beneficial to the clinical experience. In addition, the student receives two course credits for research activity during the second year of the program, which constitutes a thesis project.
To Serve Society A large degree of interinstitutional cooperation between academic and medical components goes into
making a program like the one at HGC successful. The program is effective because it benefits all involved- the students, the university, and the hospital. Students obtain an excellent education. The HGC program is tuned to their individual needs and constitutes an apprentice-type training experience. Students tend to be highly motivated, enjoy the clinical exposure, and work overtime readily to gain added experience. The academic institutions can provide students with health care-oriented projects within the health care system. The hospital feels the impact of an expanded biomedical engineering program without being committed to additional permanent positions or major equipment purchases. The goal of clinical engineering internship programs is to provide a high-qu ality educational experience for a small number of students. The internship approach is not appropriate for large numbers of students. Nor is it desirable to train many students as clinical engineers when the market for such professionals is still not clear. It is expected, however, that the market will co ntinue to expand as clinical engineers are encouraged to enter the medical instrumentation end of the industrial community, the federal agencies responsible for medical device regulation, and the engineering arm of the insurance companies underwriting hospital and malpractice policies. The extent to which clinical engineers will continue to be accepted and sought after depends on the quality of the students, the quality of their training, and the quality of their performance. All these elements are, of course, related. Students graduating from clinical engineering programs must be as competent as their contemporaries in tradition al engineering fields . The depth and rigor of their engineering education must, however, be further complemented by practical clinical experience. The internship approach described here is indispensable if students are to gain this experience and provide long-term benefits to society, to themselves, to the engineering profession, and to the acceptance of technology in the medical arena. The ultimate role of the clinical engineer - like that of all medical professionals- is to serve society. For this new breed of engineer to be effectively used, health care practitioners and administrators must recognize the need for these new professionals and understand their roles. Great potential, challenge, and promise exist in clinical engineering, and it can offer technological, intellectual, and humanitarian benefits to society. If this potential is realized, some of the art of medicine will grow to be a science, and the technology of engineering will be brought to its most humanly meaningful condition. D

Julia Horky '85 is a good spokesperson for liberal arts education. A studio arts major, she was particularly successful in sculpture and photography, although a recent exhibit of senior majors' work also showed her prints from a printmaking class and a wash drawing. Studio arts faculty are demanding, Horky notes, challenging students to produce work that is meaningful and coherent within their portfolios. But, she says, "I didn't come to Trinity to be an arts major. I came for a good liberal arts education, and it's been a great experience." Horky's one-person show at Austin Arts this winter displayed many photographs from her semester at the Barbieri Center, Trinity's Rome campus, and also from a favored theme of steps, which was mirrored in her sculpture depicting white stairs. "It's basically a pattern of receding planes," she says. "Visually I guess that's what I look at, but I didn 't even notice it until a professor pointed it out to me. In both the sculpture and photography I'm showing a rectangular shape that keeps moving in and out of space." Her European photography, .also dear to her heart, was done as an independent study while she was at the Barbieri Center and in brief excursions to other European countries. "It was very inspirational being in Europe as an artist," she says, glowing with the recollection. "Some of my best work happened there; I was especially inspired by Rome." She may return to Europe, for graduate study in art school in London or Rome, or accept a job offer to be a production assistant for a/free lance production manager in Los Angeles. Eventually she would like to do cinematography.

Sports SHIELD DRAFTED BY PACKERS "Welcome aboard, Joe, you're a Packer." With those words Green Bay Packer head coach Forrest Gregg welcomed Trinity quarterback Joe Shield to th e N ational Football League. Gregg called Shield at h is room in H igh Rise dorm to inform him that he had been the twelfth quarterback selected in the annual draft, April 30, out of more than 80 senior quarterbacks eligible. Shield was taken in the 11th round, soon after Boston College's Doug Flutie. The last Di-
vision III quarterback to be drafted in the N.F.L. was Augustana's Ken Anderson in 1971 by Cincinnati. Of his selection Shield commented, "I was very elated. It was an honor to be picked, especially by a fine organization like the Packers." Within 36 hours Joe was in Green Bay for a four-day "mini-camp," an experience which gave him the impression th at "th ey really care about their players." Joe also already seems comfortable with the community of Green Bay: "Everybody is really friendly. It's like a college town." It didn't take long on the practice field for Joe to
realize the complexity of the professional game - multiple pass patterns and ever-changing defensive coverages. "There's no school work but there's a lot to study," Joe admits. If this obstacle can be overcome, Joe should have a legitimate shot at playing in the fall. "It's up to me to make the team," Joe says. "There are three spots and four quarterbacks." The incumbent starter is 36-year-old Lynn Dickey. Joe's other competitors are the newly-acquired ex-Giant Scott Brunner and Randy Wright, a second-year player who has had knee surgery. Shield will probably be the first member of the class of 1985 to start a job as he enters rookie camp in Wisconsin two days after graduation. Best wishes to Joe as he leaves the Blue and Gold for the Green and Gold.
WOMEN'S LACROSSE (10~1) N.I.A.C. CHAMPIONS:==:======
"Break up the Yankees!" was the cry heard from the American League teams in the 1920s. "Break up the Bants!" is the cry heard from women's lacrosse teams in the 1980s. With an explosive offense and clutch play-off goaltending, Robin Sheppard's gang won their third straight Northeast Intercollegiate Athletic conference title and finished the year at 10-1. Strangely enough, Coach Sheppard was unsure of her team's capabilities prior to the season, especially on defense. These uncertainties were compounded by two rule changes - one eliminating zone defense and one eliminating a stall offense. Rather than 路exposing defensive liabilities, these changes created offensive advantages. Opponents were unable to keep up with the smarter and faster Lady Bants in a man-to-man defense, and without a stall, the Trinity offense had no choice but to keep firing shots, and goals. The team averaged nearly twenty goals per game in the regular season, an improvement of 33% over 1984. Leading the attack were Susie Cutler (43 goals- 13 assists), Ginny Biggar (35-12), Jennifer Brewster (27-12) and Karen Rodgers (19-14). A scoring spurt had Trinity leading Middlebury 105 in the N.I.A.C. semi-final at half-time. The Blue and Gold attack was shut down most of the second half but the Bantam defense impressed the home crowd by standing firm, especially sophomore Sarah Couch in goal. After a 12-7 victory Trinity met Connecticut College in the final. Five minutes into the second half Connecticut tied the score at S-5. The Camels then went scoreless for 19 minutes while the Bants methodically iced the game with a modified stall that killed time while allowing them to look for good shots. Eight straight goals paved the way for a 17-6 victory and a sip of championship champagne. Graduation will do a great deal to "break-up" the Bants, taking six seniors, including tri-captains Cutler, Rodgers and Sydney Fee (12-8), and Kat Castle (12-9), Chandler Luke (14-2) and defensive stand out Bonnie Adams (3-1). Nevertheless, one can't shed many tears for Robin Sheppard. In 11 years she has compiled an amazing 81-24-5 record by finding new stars from the ranks of).V. and freshman players. This year's J.V.
Multi-talented senior Steve Drew competed in as many as nine events as the men's track team won a third straight N.E.S.C.A.C. title. Drew ran both hurdle events, ran in both relays, competed in the long, triple and high jumps, threw the javelin and pole vaulted. Here, he races in 110 yard high hurdles.
squad went 7-1 including wins by 20-1 and 26-1 scores. Lucy Nalle and Alyssa Kolowrat each scored a team-high 35 goals.
MEN'S LACROSSE (9~4>======= The most improved team of the year was Mike Darr's lacrosse troops. Darr played many freshmen during a difficult 3-7 1984. The dividends of their experience began to pay off this year as the team rebounded from an 0-2 start to win nine of their next ten and qualify for the E.C.A.C. play-offs. Despite an opening round loss to top seed Middlebury, the team will be remembered for its earlier upset victories over Amherst and Williams, the overtime victory at Connecticut College, and the defensive work done against Gettysburg. The top six scorers were sophomores - Dave Boone (34 goals- 8 assists), Ed Meyercord (25-12), Scott Zoellner (14-10), Rob Beede (11-12), Chris Smith (126) and John Self (5-7). Only five seniors were on the
team. Captain Scott Hallett '85 was the leader of a strong defense that included classmates John Picone and Kelly Shackelford. Seniors Rob Hopkins and Steve Ryan played mid-field. Junior Paul Ferrucci has developed into one of New England's top net-minders. Mobile and quick, the third-year starter had a .679 save percentage. Other key returnees are junior Ben Rhodes and sophomore Scott Chisholm at mid-field and defensemen Pete DePatie, a junior, and freshman Dixon Waxter.
MEN'S TRACK (7 .. 1) N .E.S.C.A.C. CHAMPIONS===== By all accounts it was a very successful year for the track team- a third straight N.E.S.C.A.C. championship, the second straight year a Bantam was N.E.S.C.A.C. MVP (Femi Obi, matching fellow sprinter Dave Banta's MVP performance in 1984), and the setting of the Trinity record for most consecutive matches without a loss - 20. That streak ended at the season's last meet at WPI when a postN.E.S.C.A.C. meet let-down and rash of injuries gave third-year coach Jim Foster his first career loss. (Purists will note that due to a tie in the second meet in the streak of 20, the 1982-3 and 1983-4 women's swim team still holds the school winning streak record of 19.) Obi, a junior, qualified for the nationals at Denison University with a 21-2 run in the 200. His time of 48.8 in the 400 tied sophomore Banta's school record. That dynamic duo paired with Matt Harthun and Mike Doetsch to run a 42.6 in the 4 x 100 relay and with Krister Johnson and Steve Drew to run a 3:21.0 in the 4 x 400 relay. Both are school records. Sophomore Greg Hill tied the school record with a 15.1 in the 110 high hurdles. A pair of seniors were strong in the longer distances - Dave Barry improved his school record in the 800 to 1:53.7 and has been close to qualifying for the nationals in the 1500 while Dave O'Donnell has provided tremendous depth and spirit. In the field events, senior Rick Hayber improved his school record in the javelin and is again headed for the nationals in late May. Junior Paul Stauffer placed 5th in New England in discus while also competing in javelin, shot put, long jump and triple jump. Sophomore Jeff Usewick is improving rapidly in the hammer throw and Harthun ended his career with a very consistent year of 13' jumps at pole vault including a school best of 13 '7". The all-around competitor was Drew, a senior who performed in as many as nine events, scoring in seven.
feated in the 800 in dual meets and teamed with sophomores Betsy McKay and Alex Woodford and frosh Jennifer Buckley to set a school mark in the mile relay- 4:13.7. Kathy Klein competed in the 100,200, javelin, long and triple jumps, and shot put, in which she set a school record of 33'1 1/z''. The two captains teamed with freshmen Lucia Dow and Alex Michos to run a school record 53.7 in the 4 x 100 relay. Michos rounded out a great rookie year by setting school marks in the 100 meter hurdles (16.3) and the triple jump (33'7"). Woodford established a new standard in the long jump (16'2 ")while McKay did the same by winning the N.E.S.C.A.C. meet in the 400 meter hurdles with a time of 66.4. Seniors Ann Malabre and Jeanine Looney were strong in the 1500 and 3000 with Malabre also running the 5000. Karen Sonnone threw discus, javelin and hammer in her first year. Coach Foster believes success will breed success in recruiting. He is optimistic about the future of the program as more top athletes become interested in the sport.

seniors ended careers that were instrumental in improving the quality and stability of the program, now in its second varsity season. Outfielders Jeanne Mannes and Laura Couch, leading hitter and captain Kathy O'Brien (.529) and pitcher Donna Gilbert (the team MVP) will be missed for their abilities and leadership. Meanwhile, ten of the 19 players were freshmen, leaving much to b uild upon next year. The team's record was an improved 5-8, which still does not reflect how well the team played. Not only did Trinity take on stronger, more established teams, some of them Division II schools, but played doubleheaders with them, such as Clark and Western Connecticut. The Bantams played well against more familiar opponents Wesleyan, Connecticut College and Williams. ~ The leading hitters returning are junior third-sacker Sis Van Cleve, sophomore outfielder Susan Babcock, and a pair of freshmen who hit over .400 - firstbaseman Deborah Owen and the ever-hustling shortstop, Lisa Lake. Leadership will be provided by 1986's cocaptains, Karen Carney, an excellent defensive catcher, and Sheila Andrus, who missed this season due to a knee injury suffered in basketball. A strong pitching staff of the future will be built around Owen, her classmates Kathleen Dowling and Alyce Robinson, and sophomore Julie Simon.
MEN'S TENNIS (4 ..
There were two distinct seasons for the men's tennis team this spring. The first was a disappointing 0-4
start. The second was a strong 4-2 finish, including victories over Division I schools University of Connecticut and Army. Steve Heath's contingent had seniors at the top four spots and their experience was an important factor in the change in the team's fortunes. "We had a team meeting after Tufts and told ourselves we're not that bad," Captain Art Strome explained. Strome improved his serve and volley game for key victories, and fellow seniors Jeff Lang, Don Moran and Pete Appleton at #1 also finished their careers strongly. Rounding out the singles line-up were junior Erik Smith and Andy Petrikoff, a freshman who withstood the pressures of his first year and played well, especially in a tough, third set tie-breaker against Army. A respectable sixth-place finish against tough N.E.S.C.A.C. competition in the conference championships was spearheaded by Appleton's impressive showing in the top bracket, where he lost to the top seed in the semi-finals. The rookie doubles team of Petrikoff and Eric Newberg made it to the quarterfinals, while the Strome-Moran and Appleton-Lang duos also contributed victories to the Bantam effort.
BASEBALL (9 .. 17)===:===:===:===:===:= Trinity's 1985 baseball team displ ayed solid pitching, some spectacular fielding, and a line-up of pesky, if not power, hitters. Unfortunately, these qualities rarely all came together, and the final record was 9-17. "We never put solid pitching and offensive production
together," head coach of 18 years Robie Shults lamented. "We had some disappointments, but it was a young team and we found out some things for next year." The starting outfield was all sophomores - Murphy VanderVelde in left, who ended the season on a 10-24 tear, speedy Tyler Vartenigian, who is one of New England's best defensive centerfielders, and John Montgomery in right, the team's leading hitter among regulars with a .300 average and leader in runs scored with 17. Monty also made two diving catches to preserve the 2-1 win over Hartford, one with two outs in the ninth and two men on base. The infield generally had two sophs and two juniors with three of the four playing their first year of college ball at their position. As a result, "we had some erratic play there and it cost us," Shults said. Thirdsacker Rich Nagy '87 had a grand slam to spark the comeback against Hillsdale (the Bants trailed 9-3 before winning 12-11 on junior John Barton's double) and had five hits in the Bates doubleheader. Barton's glove was steady at short. He hit .260 and led with 26 hits and 16 RBis. Junior Bill Markowitz played second and hit .250 including a S-hit doubleheader against
Hillsdale. Andy Filler shared time at first and DH with senior Tib Miller. Filler hit .279, including a pinch-hit 2-run single to beat Bates. Miller led the team with 17 walks and made some good plays with his glove at first . Freshman T. J. Turner played some first and DH in the final third of the season and was 15-40, a .375 average. Tim Robinson did the catching. The junior carried the team to a 4-2 start in Florida, where he began the season 8 of 17. The ace of the pitching staff was senior captain Mark Hamel. He was 4-3 with a team-leading 3.73 ERA. The only other seniors on the team were pitchers Andy Bivona and Mike Criscione, who battled arm trouble. Sophomores Art Fitzgerald (2-3) and work-horse Ed Butler (14 appearances, 2-4, 2 saves) and rookie Matt Bergeron will comprise the veterans on the mound in 1986.
GOLF (6 .. 6.. 1)=:==:==:==:==:==:==:= A strong third place finish in the N.E.S.C.A.C. championship tournament proved a successful closer for the golf team. Head coach John Dunham was pleased with his team's performance, which followed a mixed 6-6-1 campaign for the year. Captain John Worthington played his fourth season at #1 and averaged 79.44 strokes per 18 holes. Dunham calls Worthington "the best golfer we've had here in at least six or seven years." Fellow senior Tony Constanzo played a "real solid" #2 while junior Paul Yablon was "very consistent for us at #3," according to the Bantam mentor. Sophomores Ross Buchmueller and Will Piculell filled out the top five. Assistant coach Charles Kohn of the Hartford Golf Club worked with the team with definite results, as the group finished the season strongly. Despite the loss of the seniors, the return of John Zweig from studies abroad and the addition of highly-touted recruits should provide promise for 1986 and beyond.
Mark Hamel fires a pitch en route to a 4-3 record with two saves. The senior captain pitched complete games in 4 of his 6 starts, and was team M.V.P.
The men's rugby team battled to a 3-3 record that included triumphs over Dartmouth, University of Hartford and Coast Guard. Coached by economics professor Vincent Smith, the squad endured an assortment of injuries that cut into the starting line-up, such as broken noses, a broken. arm, a torn rotator cuff and sprained ankles. Seniors John Bruno, Scott Elsas, Seth Manaker, AI Norton, John Taylor and Reid Wagner leave with their experience and enthusiasm after having brought the team respectability and stability over four years. Once again, the women joined in the fun. Despite a few nagging aches and pains, the team recorded a 2-4 mark while competing in only their second season against experienced teams. Highlights of the year were the victories over Wesleyan and Southern Connecticut. Captain Marly Johnston will return for action in 1986 but the team will graduate six of the eight players in the serum - Robin Black, Lulu Cass, Ann Kezer, Linda Letourneau, Kathleen Soley and Este Stifel.
Another long, grueling year of weight training, distance running and cold, early morning rows on the Connecticut culminated in Trinity's again placing among the top crews in the nation at the 47th annual Dad Vail National Championship Regatta in Philadelphia. After a regular season which saw the ].V. Heavyweights go undefeated while the Varsity Heavyweights and the Novice Lightweights lost but once, the shells were placed on the trailers to travel to the two-day event. More than 2,500 athletes from 75 schools withstood the heat on the Schuylkill River in the largest collegiate rowing competition in the world. In Friday's qualifying heats, seven of the ten Trinity boats, including six of seven male 路boats, advanced to compete Saturday. The three who did not advance were the Varsity women, the J. V. women, and the men's]. V. Lightweight "B" boat, who missed third place by the margin of 0.1 second over the 2000 meter (about 1.2 miles) course. Four of the seven qualifiers had finished first in their heat - the men's and women's Novice boats, and the men's Varsity and Novice Lightweights. The promise showed Friday turned into disappointment Saturday. Four of the seven had to race in a semi-final to reach the finals and only one, the V arsity Heavyweights, did so successfully. Theirs was a thrilling race, as they came from fifth to pass Purdue and then Massachusetts in the 400 meters and "rowed their hearts out," according to Head Coach Burt Apfelbaum. He was proud of the work of Captains Phil Carney and Bob Flanagan and the rest of the boat. Meanwhile, the men's and women's Novice boats and the Varsity Lightweights had come up short. The latter group drew some consolation by winning the petite (consolation) final in a time better than the bronze medalist. The weekend ended on a positive note, however, as two of the four boats eligible to pick up points for the Bratten Trophy, which was won by New Hampshire, won medals. The Novice Lightweights and the J.V. Heavyweights both sprinted to the finish to win a silver and a bronze, respectively. The J.V. Lightweights finished fourth and the Varsity Heavies came in fifth, giving Trinity a total of 23 points, good enough for 4th place finish , tied with Coast Guard and Temple (winners of the Varsity Heavyweight race, behind New Hampshire, F.I.T. and Georgetown). / The success of the Trinity crews in staying strong in stretch drives was the direct result of a changed training program instituted by Coach Apfelbaum. "We've been training quite differently, following the program of the U.S. Olympic coach which calls for a lot of volume (distance rowing)," he said. At the post-season banquet, the Hartford Barge Club Award for sportsmanship was shared by seniors Harry Gigas and Andy Merrill. The Wicks Award for the outstanding freshmen was given to Arthur Muldoon, Eric Beatty and Laura Scott. The Proctor Award for improvement was won by Wendy Woolf. The Torch Award for greatest contribution to the program was presented to novice coach Henry Fox.

For many years SYD PINNEY acted as our Class Agent, and following his death his widow , Louisa, succeeded him with equal distinction. Several years ago, due to ill health, she was forced to relinquish the post. In 1984 there were four contributors listed in the annual report of the Alumni Fund. This was a far cry from our usual contribution under Syd and Louisa's guidance. With time running short, may I unofficially request that if you haven't sent in your contribution that you do so before June 1. Thank you! LIPPY PHISTER has made a very generous contribution to the 1918 Memorial Scholarship Fund which now stands at over $93,500, approaching our goal of$100,000 - not bad for a class that never had 100 undergradu~te members.

The Hartford Courant Sunday magazine carried a story about the Seahorse Restaurant, a popular gathering place for the seagoing community of Noank, CT. In a discussion of the musical talent which had, over the years, enlivened the bar, the author recalled that "Master Mariner ADRIAN LANE would come ashore with his concertina. His repertoire was gathered the hard way: Scandanavian songs from when his ship sank in the North Atlantic and he was rescued by a Norwegian freighter, nights with dynamiting oceanographers when he skippered the sail~ng research vessel, Atlantis, encounters with tugboatmen.he'd met in World War II in ' Vladivostok . . . 'I'm still a believer, though, that a voyage should be as dull as possible,' he says. 'Leave the disasters for songs in the Seahorse.' " Apparently Doc hasn't changed his opinion from our College years, when he was known to quote that well-know maritime authority, W.S . Gilbert, to the effect that "to lay aloft in a howling gale/may tickle a landsman's taste" but that a sailor would prefer the less dramatic surroundings of a refuge like the Seahorse. During an encounter in February, JACK FITZGERALD asked your SECRETARY whether he has yet retired (he has not). In response to the obvious counter-question Jack disclosed that he was going to retire at the end of that month, after 28 years with United Techuologies Corporation. Thus he will relinquish a daily commute (60 miles each way) between Fairfield and Hartford. Class Agent: John T. Carpenter

Your SECRETARY saw California for the first time this past January when he visited his brother who was stationed in Marin County for business. For a New England skier, Squaw was a real trip! Spectacular beauty, warm dry sun, plenty of snow, broad, huge, wide-open slopes, and the best of lotusland health food everywhere!

About one year from when you read this, we could all be convening for Reunion number TEN! Try to make plans to come back and show off your prosperous waistline, your spectacular children, your receding hairline, etc., (or if you want the rest of us to be insanely jealous, come back and prove you've only improved in every way since 1976). It'll also be a chance to see if all the stuff I write about here is really true! To get people's attention, I've used a bit of poetic license with notes from this quarter, so bear with me. It gets boring just transcribing from xerox copies of the inside of annual giving envelopes. Travels with Trin, a very short story by your Class SECRETARY (please be advised that the story is a lie, but the names are real in order not to protect the guilty): Me and my dog Trin (short for Trin-tintin, of course) were meandering in Stockholm, Sweden the other day when CHARLES ANDREWS, a prosperous banker on assignment for Manufacturers Hanover, stopped us saying, "Hey, aren't you the pair from the Quad looking for class news from the 1976 crew?" "Right," I said, "but how did you know that?" I assumed that his M.B.A. in international business and finance (N.Y.U., 1982) had given him special insight. " We don't see many blue and gold dogs that look like bantam roosters around here," he said. "Vooph," barked Trin, stressing his vowels heavily to show off a recently acquired accent. "So what's new?" asked Charlie. "Well, Trin and I are into doghouse construction these days, so we're checking out architects. I learned from LINDA CHERKAS who is doing research at the Philadelphia Geriatric Center studying the effect of exercise on the elderly, that FRED KNAPP was in Florence, Italy studying architecture for a degree at Syracuse. Trin wants to talk to JOHN BATTLE, too. John has started his own architectural firm in Boston. And then we'll have a meeting with DANIEL LINCOLN who's at Moger Woodson Architects, for the New York perspective. Seeing DEBORAH FILLION will also help, as she is art director for Fine Homebuilding magazine in Newtown, CT. I think we'll also talk with BARBARA CLARK for some media input; she's a field support analyst for USA TODAY in Rosslyn, VA." With that, Trin made another noise that sounded more like a cough than a bark. "That does it," I said, "we're going to Philadelphia right now to see ROBERT (BERT) ARANSON. He wrote and told me that he's going to become director of medical intensive care unit and assistant professor of medicine at Temple University Hospital when he completes his two year fellowship in pulmonary medicine. A few hours later, Trin was on the examining table. Dr. Bert was most helpful, but we decided to get additional opinions from some colleagues about Trin's condition. We called DON REBHUN for an expert in maxillofacial and oral surgery in
Pittsburgh and also contacted MARGOT JAFFE, D.D.S., an assistant clinical professor at Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery. F or perspective, we also consulted with DR. MERIWETHER, a recently married urology resident at the University of Pittsburgh, and PEGGY HERZOG, a psychologist with Queens General Hospital who has opened her own private practice as well. STEVEN CARLOW has been appointed a special fellow in sports medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, OH. The medical experts agreed that Trin's symptoms were typical of a blue and gold dog about to hit double digits in the age category, but all wanted to know if Trin had recently become a parent like so many of our classmates. After all, RICK SCHWEIKERT's daughter, Erica Lauren, was born November, 1984; GREER CANDLER LERCHE N and TERRY MICHEL GUMZ both had daughters (Elizabeth Claire Lerchen and Lillian Michel Gumz) in June of '84, and JAY MERWIN's son, Christopher David, was born on January 6, 1985 (see Births). Alas, Trin has no family except our bicentennial class, so the medical community asked if he might be under severe stress due to financial insecurity. Well, Trin has always been a spendthrift, so I decided to get him in touch with some people in the know. That meant talking to bankers like CHARLIE KELLNER at Fleet National in Hartford (he' s a public finance rep); investment bankers like SCOTT THOMPSON, an account r ep with Smith Barney; and B. J. MEGARGEL, a v.p. in M. and A. for Lehman Brothers, who married AMANDA BROWN 5/18/84; and other specialists like JACK ORRICK who has a master's in tax law from Georgetown and works for Colton and Boykin in Washington, D.C. Financial stress was not the problem, so Trin and I decided to travel for a while and visit people. In New York we saw WENDA HARRIS MILLARD who had been made associate publisher/advertising director for ADWEEK/East, and also saw MISSY WENDER BELL, who is manager of business systems at Marsh & McLennan. Then to Rahway, NJ, where RUTH VEAL W ATTLEY is a senior research chemist for Merck and Company, before a trip north to see NANCY M. WALTON in her new store, "Top of the Lamp," near Needham, MA, and PETER MAY, who's a senior accountant in capital planning for Combustion Engineering in Windsor , CT. Trin especially enjoyed seeing P eter as a chorus member in Simsbury Light Opera where he has participated in productions of Utapia, Ltd., H.M.S. Pinafore(and Trial
by Jury. Exhausted from travel, Trin returned home to his bed in the basement of the chapel where he can be lulled to sleep by the carillon. His medical problem had been cured by catching up with the people he hadn't heard from in too long, and for now he's chasing frisbies and waiting for all of us to come back and visit. By the way, if you see a blue and gold dog that looks like a bantam rooster, don't be shy, just introduce yourself and tell him what you're up to. New travels must include a visit to ANNE BROWN RODGERS who is still with the Embassy in Zambia with her husband. They'll be returning to Washington in August, 1985 for an assignment with the State Department. Class Agents: Thomas P. Santopietro Greer Candler Lerchen

Most of us now have been at our present jobs for a couple of years and are making good progress; others are married, bought homes, have kids and damn that car payment; while a few, still looking for that golden formula, punch out and do something new and different.

Hello again - seems every time I turn around I get more news to pass along! Keep those cards and letters coming, everyone. This installment comes to you from beautiful Chicago, where I'm still in my never-ending quest of a law degree. By the time this reaches everyone, though, a couple of our classmates will become fullfledged lawyers, including STEVE GROSSMAN (New York Law School), AMY FISCH (Brooklyn Law School) and AL MESSIER (Western New England Law School). Who else - I know you're out there. Drop me a line ... There seems to be a lot of us going to or just finished school right now. JULIA WOLCOTT writes from New York where she's a graduate student in film atN.Y.U. Just finished his master's in directing at Long Island University, JEFF HILBURN has turned his talents on a number of offBroadway theater companies, for whom he is free-lancing. Uptown, GREGG CASERTA continues as a third-year student at Columbia University Dental School. And Gregg is engaged路 to get married in September - congratulations! (Are you sure you're studying there??) HENRY DePHILLIPS is still hitting the medical books too - studying general internal medicine in Delaware at Hahnemann University. He notes, "Three more semesters and then on to a residency- only God knows where." JOHN MEANEY, also a third-year student but at UConn School of Medicine in Farmington, is also still working towards the medical degree. For any of you who missed it, John was married last June to a fellow medical student - what a duo! CRAIG VOUGHT is pushing for his M.B.A. at Wharton in Philadelphia. Also in that area, GWEN ILLICK is getting her M.S.W. (social work, that is) at Rutgers University and lives in Allentown, PA. She has also joined the ranks of the happy couples - she is engaged and will be married in May of this year. "Studying hard and feeling good!" was the comment of another fellow '82er who is in school again of course it's BEN BARON, who's getting his M.B.A. at Harvard. Also up that way, JULIE ASARKOF REECE is going to Boston University part-time while she 路 works at WSBK-TV in Beantown. Julie has been promoted again - this time to general sales coordinator and director of per inquiry advertising. RANDY SMOUSE, last but not least, rounds out the "school days" crowd; he's studying law at Washington & Lee in Virginia. The rest of us continue to slave away but seem to enjoy it! MINDY PICKERING is a foreign exchange trader/analyst in New York for Sea-Land Corporation. Also in the City, PATTYWACHTELL is a corporate finance officer at Bank of America on Madison Avenue. One of Patty's 'fellow' bankers is KEVIN HIGGINS who puts in his time for the competition on Park Avenue - Chemical Bank. But wait there's more! On Water Street, TOM SAVAGE is an assistant treasurer for National Westminster Bank USA and on William Street, BILL SCHAUFLER is an international banking officer for Banca Commerciale Italiana. If anyone ever needs a loan . ... Engagements and weddings galore! In case you missed the front of these notes, here's a quick rundown in addition- SUE MOLINEAUX PIERCE, married in No-
vember of last year, is now living in New Jersey and working for Johnson & Higgins; MICHELLE McCARTHY SWEENEY, married in April of last year (happy anniversary, already!), is a store manager in Lynn, MA; PETE "SMILES" SMIALEK is engaged to be married in November, 1985 to a woman he met at The Travelers who is originally from Egypt; CHRISY MASTERS is engaged to marry on June 22, 1985 to a 1981 graduate of Penn.; and, JOYCE ACKERMAN will get married one week earlier, on June 15, 1985, in Miami. The most popular job this year, surprisingly, is in fine arts - seems everyone is being creative these days. Joining JOYCE ACKERMAN in Miami, LUCY COLE will be moving from her present job as a marketing assistant at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. in order to start a teaching career in theater. SARAH JANE NELSON is in a different aspect of theater - she's assistant editor of Stagebill at Lincoln Center. Of course I already mentioned JEFF HILBURN working on off-Broadway shows. Back in Hartford, LISA D' ADDEO has become programs assistant at the Children's Museum; in her spare time she has sung/will sing with a quartet at Shenanigans, a group for a brunch at the Children's Museum, "a new choir," and the Hartford Symphony Orchestra. Lisa even has enough breath to ask to pass this message along to JOE DiMARINO - "Hello." After that much singing, I suppose she doesn't have very much breath after all! Of course New York hasn't been heard from finally in this installment yet. KATE MEYERS checks in from the Big Apple where she is a researcher for Self Magazine. And, CHRIS LAMENSDORF is an institutional salesperson for Salomon Brothers in New York City. Also in New York City, TOM SAVAGE is assistant treasurer for National Westminster Bank. PETE MARTIN writes again- keeping us up on his family (his daughter, Kara, is already 1 V. years old), his career (he's been promoted to unit sales manager at Procter & Gamble in New Jersey), and his "adventures." In the latter department, he lamented in his message that "All the boys seem to be settling down - out only once this year. Of course, New York City will never be the same!" That crew of TUCC, JOSE, WOODY, SHAUFS and KEVIN DOYLE were serious, I'm sure! Raising heck (ok, this is a family column, remember) up north, STEVE ELMENDORF is working for the Public Service Commission of New York in Albany. Somewhere up in that direction as well, MARK BUTTARO is in Keene, NH as a senior systems programmer for Peerless Insurance Company. Back home, ARMANDO PAOLINO, coming off his work in Congressman John Rowland's initial and successful run in Connecticut's 5th House District, (Armando was intern for Rowland in 1981 in the Trinity Legislative Internship Program and was field and operations director during the campaign), has gone to work in Hartford. He's assistant manager for Regional Governmental Affairs for the Greater Hartford Chamber of Commerce. Finally, across the country, BRODIE BAIN writes to report that I blew it in the last issue - she has not entered architecture school but is only applying for this fall. Meanwhile, she is "fascinated" by her job as a researcher on a federal grant study of children at risk of anxiety and depression. She also is excited about her freelance business - doing graphics for psychiatry research grant applications. To wrap it up, there is also no news and unknown news. The no news is surprising - not a word from ERIC MENDOZAWOODS for this issue! (Only kidding, Eric; your life must have suddenly taken a turn for the normal, though, since this is the first issue that I haven't heard from you
about some scheme you're up to.) The unknown news is a P.S. from BRODIE BAIN which I didn't have time to verify- "Just read the article in Forbes on Macy's and MIKE TUCCI. Did you see it?" I missed it - can anyone help me out? That's it for now. Keep in touch, everyone, and by the way, has anyone heard from KEVIN MORSE? Class Agents: Patricia Hooper Steven Elmendorf
Laura A. Wilcox 596 Navaho Trail Dr. Franklin Lakes, NJ 07417
I'm pleased to have heard from a few more classmates recently! There are still many of you in points relatively unknown, so please feel free to make your whereabouts known. (It's only 3 years until the reunion, and we have got to start planning.) LAURIE FREDRICKSON wrote me from "glorious Hartford." She is working as a chemist for the State of Connecticut Health Department. Laurie will be attending medical school soon - most likely at New York Medical College. Laurie reports that LISA CARROLL is in the Air Force in Mississippi; DOUG KUZMICKI, AMY FULTON, and PAT SCLAFANI are all living in Hartford. KEN BRESLIN is in his second year at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. CAROLIE WILDRICK is in New Jersey (lucky girl) working for National Brands Outlet (a great discount chain, says an expert discount shopper!) and she is "climbing the retail ladder rapidly." Laurie mentioned that a few other grads reside near her on Congress Street - NICK BORDIERI '85, CURTISS KOLODNEY '81, and ANNE ZINKIN. SUSAN STANCZYK MARTINDALE wrote to tell me that her life as a chemist at Uniroyal is still successful. She is presently pursuing her M.S. in chemistry at St. Joseph, and she and her husband, Don, have bought a house in Naugatuck. TERRIE JOHNSON and TED HARTSOE are planning an August wedding. Terrie is teaching chemistry at Amity High School in Woodbridge and will probably be coaching softball this spring. Another Connecticut resident is SUSAN IBARGDEN, who works as a credit analyst at People's Bank in Hartford. Although KEVIN HIGGINS lives in Connecticut, he is among the ranks of commuters into the Big Apple, working as a management trainee for Chemical Bank; also at Chemical Bank is JOHN SIMONS, who is a credit analyst. (Hey, what do credit analysts do, anyway? I mean, do you guys give credit or just get it? Do you have anything to do with the fact that poor school teachers cannot get VISA cards?) ANGELO ORFANOS is an account manager for United States Lines in Manhattan; JOHN P . HOLMES works for Oppenheimer and Co. as an account executive; RASHNE DESAI is an import analyst for Carter Hawley Hale; and JULIA PISTOR is at ABC News-in-Production, having just completed a job as production assistant on a children's video series. Crossing the bridge to New Jersey (it's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it), CHRIS DELANEY is a sales representative for Procter and Gamble in Cranford. (Is that any where near Shortcherry Hills?) ELAINE GAMBA is a marketing representative for IBM in Paramus and will be moving to North Jersey soon. (Will you be near Franklin Lakes?) While we are on the subject of Jersey, I have taken up permanent (well, semi-permanent) residence and will return to school this fall to get a master's degree in theater. Then I can teach little ninth graders a play and make them act it out. Also at school are some doctors - KIM
THACKER, at Downstate Medical Center in New York; MARK BRONSKY, at University of Alabama Dental School. Lawyers - MARTHA PYLE, at Boston College Law School; JOHN LEMONICK at Vermont Law School; MIKE KENNEY at the University of Bridgeport; JIM GRE NEN at University of Pittsburgh; AMY JOHNSON, in her second year at Duke; and finally, CHRIS SULLIVAN at Catholic University. Chris is also working parttime for a national civil rights organization - the Committee Against Discrimination in Housing. Others at grad school are SASHA OPEL at Simmons College School of Social Work; ALLEN LEPORE, a graduate research assistant at Cornell, working in high speed compound semiconductor devices and heading for a Ph.D.; and STEVE SOPER at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins. Around New England, CINDY BRIERLEY is a tax specialist for Peat, Marwick and Mitchell in Rhode Island. GINNY DODSON is in Missouri, working at an environmental camp for high school kids; and MELINDA JOHNSON is a credit analyst for First Penna Bank in Philadelphia. So, that's all the news for this column. As always, I do hope to hear from you especially all you credit analysts, because now that I'm a student again (with no income, I might add), I will probably never get a VISA card and I really need some help in this area. 0 .K.? (Listen, I'll tutor your firstborns in English - for free!) Oh, speaking of English, I just came back from a trip to England and if you are looking for a cheap place to visit, go now. The dollar is pretty strong and Burberry raincoats are such a bargain over there. Take care of yourselves, write soon, and, as Frankie says ... "relax."

A Message from the Alumni Association President Dear Alumni/ ae: As alumni of Trinity College you are formally represented by a National Alumni Association, an organization with its own officers, constitution and by-laws. I have had the pleasure and honor of serving as the president of your Association for the past two years. This letter is the first of a series of messages designed to acquaint you with the activities and objectives of the Association and to encourage your participation in alumni affairs on campus and in your local communities. The governing body of the Association is its Executive Committee, whose officers are identified on the inside front cover of each Trinity Reporter. The constitution of the Association provides for vice presidents with specific responsibilities for the primary areas in which the Association functions. These areas include: Alumni Fund, Campus Activities, Admissions, Area Associations, Public Relations and Career Counseling. The annual meeting of the Association is typically held on campus during reunion weekend. This year's meeting will be held on June 15 at noon in the Field House. In this letter I would like to discuss the Association's activities in regard to local area associations and College adm issions. One of our objectives is to encourage the formation and continuation of local alumni clubs throughout the country. Al umni clubs offer a means for alumni to continue the friendships established on campus, meet other local alumni and become involved in programs that further the interests of the College. Not surprisingly, the principal clubs exist in the larger cities, primarily on the East Coast. In all, our Association boasts a total of 22 local clubs. Well over 1,500 alumni participated in at least one local association event during the last 12 months. Alumni who are living in an area served by a local Trinity club and are not receiving information about its activities should contact Gerald J. Hansen, Jr., Director of Al umni and College Relations, Trinity College, Hartford, CT06106 (phone 203 527-3151, ext. 214). If t here is no Trinity club in your locality at present and you would like to help form one, your Association can help provide you with a handbook designed to aid in the establishment of new local area clubs. Contact Jerry Hansen for more information. A second significant area of activity involves College admissions . Over the past decade your Association, in conjunction with the admissions office, has designed a program for alumni participation in the admissions process. This program, previously known as the Alumni Admissions
Victor F. Keen '63
Support Program (AASP) and now referred to as the Trinity Alumni Admissions Program (T AAP), will, when fully implemented, involve hundreds of alumni throughout the country. The objectives of the program are to aid the ; admissions office in the identification of outstanding candidates for Trinity, to increase the positive awareness of Trinity among secondary school guidance counselors, principals and headmasters, and to "sell" the College to admitted candidates who are weighing Trinity against other alternatives . We are pleased that this effort will be directed by Jane Reynolds, an energetic new addition to the T rinity Admissions Office. I invite all alumni wishing to participate in this program to contact Jane directly, (phone 203 5273151, ext. 420). The National Alumni Association exists to serve you. If you have any comments or suggestions as to any aspect of the Association's activities or plans, I would like to hear from you. Yours very truly, Victor F.
