Dear Editor: Enclosed is an article from the I 0/17 issue of the San Antonio Express reporting loss of all civil rights in Nicaragua. This should be posted on your bulletin board for the edifi cation of your left-wing faculty and students who seem to be in the majority at Trinity. Somoza was an angel compared to the Sandinistas. The white Rhodesians were vastly superior to the blacks now running that country. Ethiopia, Angola and all other African countries formerly controlled by whites are black-run . disasters. Trinity's recent South African divestment is not only a disgrace, it's stupid. JackS. White '40 Fredericksburg, Texas Trinity recently sold stock in two r:ompanies doing business in South Africa that had not signed the Sullivan principles. The Trustees did not vote to divest all holdings in companies with South African connections at this time. The Editor Dear Editor: The Trinity Reporter is my first "first hand" contact with Trinity. Our daughter, Gail, is a freshman and very very happy. She just declared herself a biochem major, is on the cross country team and writing sports articles for the newspaper. Obviously all this is very · exciting to us. But a little dark cloud hung over my acceptance of all of this. From all that I hear and am told, Trinity is a very conservative institution. That is why I especially wanted to th~nk you for the piece by Melissa Everett, "In Search of Nicaragua." I learned tw,o things from this article. One, that all the graduates of Trinity are not conservative · and two that the school itself is willing to sponsor provocative material on a controversial subject. Thank God for both of the above. I somehow had the sense that our daughter was now immersed in a bastion of conservatism that I could neither relate to nor admire. Thank you for makiBg me feel more a part of our daughter's school comm1,1nity. Sincerely, • Mary Brent Wehrli Los Angeles, Califqrnia P.S. Please, if you can, .thank Ms. Everett. for her excellent article and tell her how much it meant to a parent of a member of the class of '89! I agree with her conclusion about this "flawed but vital experiment in democratic socialism" and hope that oth ers reading her findings and insights will be provoked to read more and question the path our country is taking with regard to the Sandinistas. Dear Editor: Now that Melissa Everett has given us the "real'.' Nicaragua, perhaps she can next visit Cuba and see what lies twenty-five years down the road for that "democratic socialism" the Sandinistas have so benevolently offered their countrymen. And since the Trinity Reporter has decided to publish an avowed political position, perhaps it can in the next issue offer another point of view. How about a George Will article on the intellectual left which presides in American colleges and universities? Sincerely, Robert Ierley '58 Manasquan, New Jersey Our hope is that the articles appearing in the magazine reflect the diversity in our alumni body. We seek interest rather than mere balance. On that basis we did carry an article entitled, "A Conversation with George Will" in the Summer 1978 issue. The Editor

Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk $1 MILLION GOAL FOR ALUMNI FUND

2

At the annual Class Agents Conference in October it was announced that the College sought to raise $1 million from alumni this year to support Trinity's academic program. The new goal is an increase from the $84 7, 799 raised in the 1984-85 Alumni Fund, and is the first million-dollar goal in the history of the College. To reach this objective, the class agent network will be expanded, particularly in classes out ten years or less. Increased participation is an essential ingredient for reaching the new target. The $1 million to be raised by the Alumni Fund represents two-thirds of the Annual Fund goal of $1.5 million. This amount includes contributions from parents, friends and the business community. During the recent Class Agents Conference, more than 100 people attended an awards dinner to recognize outstanding achievements during l~st year's alumni fund drive. George P. Kroh '60 captured four awards for his class, including the 1934 Trophy and the Bernard Dignam Class Agent Award, as well as awards for raising the most dollars and for the greatest increase in contributions. Other awards were: The Class of 1916 Trophy, to the Class of 1975 (Benjamin Brewster, class agent); the Alumni Association Award, to the Class of 1940 (Walter E. Borin, class agent) ; the Rookie of the Year Award, to Alan S. Farnell '70; Greatest Participation, the Class of 1936 (Albert M. Dester, class agent); Increased Participation, the Class of 1932 (Richard C. Meloy, class agent); Most Donors, the Class of 1984 (Todd M. Knutson, David R. Lenahan, and Jane W. Melvin, class agents); The Review, Trinity's biannual literary magazine, is now accepting alumni submis路 sions. The Review publishes artwork, photographs, short fiction, and poetry. Submissions for the Spring, 1986 edition should be received by March 1 and should be sent to Box 4000, Trinity College, Hartford, CT 06106.

NEW DORM ON DRAWING BOARD Planning is under way for the financing and 'construction of a new student residence on campus. The dormitory, to house 100-125 students, will be sited between Psi Upsilon fraternity and the English department building at 115 Vernon Street. According to Robert A . Pedemonti, vice president for finance and treasurer, the north campus location was chosen "to provide a more cohesive atmosphere at that end of campus." In addition to student accommodations - all single rooms - the building is expected to include a snack bar and a large facility

for meetings and social events. The decision to construct the dormitory was an outgrowth of a residential master plan, completed by Vice President Thomas A. Smith in the summer of 1984. Smith noted that the College had made substantial strides in improving student housing in recent years, most notably the construction of Funston Hall in 1977 and the renovation of apartment-style residences on Crescent Street and Allen Place. Extensive refurbishing of Elton Hall was undertaken last summer. In his report, Smith said that "staff involved in student affairs and students in residence are agreed that Jones Hall and North Campus are overcrowded ... " He pointed out that a new dormitory would allow the College to convert 100 double rooms in Jones and North Campus to single occupancy. President English, in his long-range plan issued last September, acknowl-


Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk edged the need for more high-quality residential space, and proposed the construction of a new dormitory as one means of improving student life outside the classroom. The College will finance the project, expected to cost around $6 million, through a Connecticut Health and Educational Authority bond issue. The architects are Russell, Gibson, von Dohlen of Farmington, CT, who did the $4 million renovation of Mather Campus Center in 1984. The dormitory should be ready for occupancy some time in 1988.

The College History: Volume Two

HELP WANTED FOR PHONOTHONS Volunteers and facilities are needed for the alumni phonothons, which are slated for February. Designed to reinforce the work of the class agents, the phone campaigns will be conducted on a regional basis. Cathy Cosgrove '83, assistant director of annual giving, is directing the phonothons and urges alumni of all ages to volunteer. "Participating in these sessions is a wonderful way to get involved in Trinity activities and also spend an evening with a group of enjoyable people," she said. Office sites are needed as well as telephone solicitors, especially in Boston, Washington, D.C. and Chicago. Typically phonothons have been held in brokerage houses, law firms and banks where a number of phones are available. From 10 to 30 phones is ideal, according to Cosgrove. Anyone interested in making telephones available to the College for an evening should contact Cosgrove in the Development Office at Trinity (203) 527-3151, Ext. 532.

NEW ADMINISTRATORS ANNOUNCED Four people have recently been appointed to continuing positions in the administration: JUDITH V. BRANZBURG, affirmative action officer. Branzburg has held the position of Women's Center coordinator since 1984. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Rochester, her master of arts degree in English literature from the State University of New York and a docto-

To Alumni and Friends of the College: I am delighted to say that Professor Glenn Weaver has agreed to take up again the writing of the College's history. It is now more than twenty years since his splendid first volume, The History of Trinity College, appeared and was instantly recognized as a fully authoritative account ofTrinity's past as well as a model for a college history. That volume carried the story of the College from its beginning down into the first decade of the Ogilby presidency, which began in 1920. In planning his second volume, Professor Weaver contemplates an important first chapter which will recapitulate Trinity's history prior to 1920 to be followed by a detailed narrative of the Ogilby, Funston, Jacobs, and Lockwood presidencies. Covering the period 1920-1981, therefore, it will describe more than one-half of Trinity's second century. We are fortunate indeed that Glenn Weaver is willing to undertake this task. A distinguished American historian, he is particularly familiar with the history of Trinity and of our city and state. We all look forward to the completion of this new volume. In addition to his own remarkable knowledge and memory, Professor Weaver will have at his disposal the College's extensive archives. He will a:lso want to draw heavily on the recollections of as many Trinity people as he can. I urge everyone who has materials or experiences they are willing to share to get in touch with him promptly. As he began his work in 1960, Professor Weaver wrote an article for the Trinity College Alumni Magazine entitled "Let's Write the College History." I'm sure he is as eager for assistance now as he was then. It is expected that this important work will take several years to complete. The Reporter will keep us all informed of its progress.

sixty percent of the vote, is the first woman to hold the post at Trinity. An economics major, she has been a resident assistant and has been active in student government since her junior year. George has been a student representative on the Curriculum Committee, a tutor in the Writing Center, and a teaching assistant for the economics department. George ran on a platform of improving all aspects of student life, and increasing student-faculty interaction. She cites the new alcohol policy, boosting minority enrollment, and the College's position on South Africa and divestment as some of the major issues that Student Government will address in the coming year. Elected as SGA vice president was Paul J. Powers, a senior economics major from Rome, NY.

FACULTY CHOOSES PRESIDENT'S FELLOWS Twenty-six members of the Class of 1986 have been selected by the faculty to be this year's President's Fellows. Each fall, every academic department and program nominates a senior major for this honor, with the selection being based on outstanding achievement in the major along with evidence of wideranging intellectual interests. The Fellows meet with the President and members of the faculty and administration throughout the year to discuss a vari-

TRINITY LAMBDA ORGANIZES One of the visible social trends in the

U.S. during the eighties- an emergent gay culture - is also being reflected in

the alumni organizations and activities of a growing number of educational institutions. Alumni/ae from Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Columbia and Radcliffe are among those who have formed gay and lesbian support groups on both regional and national levels. At Yale, such a group has been operating since 1982, and now sponsors a full schedule of activities during the University's annual reunion. Among the primary goals of these organizations are: to offer educational and social programs; to strength en alumni/ ae ties to the institutions; and to help make the campus environment

.A SAM SHEPARD FESTIVAL in Hartford was kicked off at Trinity ~ith the production of the award-winning play, "Buried Child," in the Austin Arts Center. Director Arthur Feinsod, assistant professor of theatre and dance, is also offering a course on Shepard in Trinity's VISTAS program this fall, and directed "True West" at the Wadsworth Atheneum.

Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk Along the Walk asked that the College immediately mount an educational program on South Africa to continue throughout the year and authorized the expenditures necessary for it. Faculty, students and administrators are organizing the program which was launched with visits by two wellknown experts on the South African situation. Simeon Nkoane, Suffragan Bishop of Johannesburg, talked about "Black Initiatives for Change" on November 7 before an audience of about 200 people. Nkoane, who is an associate of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu, stated that the youths in South Africa have mobilized adults and communities into taking action against the apartheid system. He said that increased activism among blacks is due in part to a revolutionary theology framed by South African church leaders which challenges the old precepts that "kept the oppressed oppressed."

In Hartford, an informal group, known as Trinity Lambda, has been meeting since last May. Its first func路 tion, a reception on campus, coincided with the reunion weekend. About 40 men and women attended, drawn from classes graduating over the past 30 years. A second Lambda social gather路 ing took place on Homecoming weekend following the football game. Though Lambda has no official ties to the College - and is not seeking such recognition - the founders see the group as a "vehicle of reconciliation" for many alumni/ ae who have been alienated from the College because of negative experiences during their undergraduate years. "We are committed to Trinity College and want to be fully participatiBg members of the Alumni Association," said one of the organizers. Lambda is seen by its members as providing a "supportive environment where gay, lesbian and bisexual alumni/ ae can be , themselves ." Names and membership information are held in confidence . .

Individuals wishing to receive more information about Trinity Lambda are invited to write to the organization at Box 6651, Hartford, CT 06106.

SOUTH AFRICAN ISSUES EXPLORED An educational program on South Africa proposed by the Board ofT rustees began during November and will continue throughout the academic year. The program, which includes films and lectures by prominent guest speakers, is intended to provide first hand information about South African problems to the College community as well as to the public. The concept was an outgrowth of the Trustees' October decision to strengthen their opposition to the South African system of racial apartheid and discrimination. The Board voted to divest $900,000 worth of stocks in two companies which have not signed the Sullivan principles, although the corporations adhere to similar guidelines. The Trustees then

Nkoane Nkoane added that black youths intend to boycott the school system, sacrificing their education at least temporarily, to work for change in South Africa. David Welsh, a widely-published scholar on South African politics, spoke at Trinity on November 19. Welsh, who is professor of political studies at the University of Capetown, is the author of The Roots of Segregation,


Along the Walk Along the W'alk Along the Walk Along the Walk 1845-1910, and co-author, with Frederick van Zyl Slabbert, of South Africa's Options: Strategies for Sharing Power. Welsh commented that despite growing unrest in South Africa, he does not see revolution as imminent. "The violence will be inconclusive for a long time," he said. An opponent of divestment, Welsh stated that the imposition of sanctions by foreign governments would result in "black unemployment on a massive scale," and probably would not force the government into improving conditions for blacks in South Africa. Welsh echoed Nkoane's view that the police in South Africa have used unnecessary and brutal force in quelling unrest in the country.

CLASS IDENTITY PLAN LAUNCHED For the first time, class officers - the president, vice president, and secretary, who serve a class until its first reunion - have been elected in the fall of the senior year. The move is part of a new effort to enhance the sense of class identity among undergraduate classes, according to Gerald J. Hansen, Jr. '51, director of alumni and college relations. Hansen notes that Lee Coffin '85, assistant director of alumni relations, was hired in July to direct that effort among undergraduates and also to work with young alumni. Prior to this year, officers were elected by the seniors in late April. Coffin recalls from his own experience as a senior last year that, by the old process, individuals could be nominated who were not interested in holding an office, and also that few seniors voted. By contrast, under the new system this fall, members of the Class of '86 who were interested in holding an office were asked to submit a petition with 25 signatures to qualify for the ballot. There were four candidates each for president and vice president, and two for secretary. "Over 250 members of the senior class cast votes, which is very good," Coffin says. "That's a better turnout than in SGA elections." The senior class officers are: Marilyn R. Weiss, president; Margaret M. Figueroa, vice president; and Regina J. Bishop, secretary. They have chosen 16 seniors representing a broad cross-section of the

Class of '86 to work with them in planning the traditional Senior Week activities preceding Commencement. This committee will also arrange special events for seniors throughout the year. This plan is one of the chief advantages of the fall elections and larger committee, according to Coffin. "The officers and the committee will become familiar with the alumni office operation and staff, so that a relationship will be formed," he says. "This will be particularly valuable when the time for the first reunion comes around." The '86 officers and committee have already worked successfully with the alumni office on a pep rally and bonfire held on the Friday evening before Homecoming. A Senior Snow Ball was held in December and a January event is in the offing. They have launched a monthly newsletter, "The '86er," which highlights senior accomplishments and offers news and announcements of specific interest to seniors. Plans for Senior Week activities will be very similar to those of the past - a dinner, ball, cruise, and brunch. Along with social activities, the class is spon-

soring at least one lecture in the spring semester on a topic like "senior stress." Coffin acts as their advisor, meeting with the officers on a weekly basis, and the committee monthly. He is impressed by their enthusiasm and commitment. "The committee meml;lers are really interested in trying to make the events better," he says. "They have been really involved in the whole effort. And, they know that the juniors and underclassmen are watching them to see what they do." He notes that eventually the concept for building class identity in '86 will be extended to the other undergraduate classes. The benefits are obvious for both the undergraduates and the College, Coffin feels. "The College wants alumni who are committed to the school," he observes. "We want to give them a good experience as undergraduates, because it's a natural progression. When they become alumni, we hope they will remain involved through Area Association events and reunions. These activities will, in turn, help them to keep the friendships they made at Trinity."

The Price of Excellence By James F. English, Jr. welcome you all to this Convocation, which celebrates the beginning of Trinity's 163rd academic year. It is a pleasure to have a number of friends from the Hartford Community and parents here today, as well as the two special guests - Guy Shafer and Arthur Winograd - whom we will be honoring later in these exercises. They represent, with distinction, the cultural, business, and educational institutions of this city, which enrich Trinity in ways that are almost unique among colleges of its type. I want to talk for a few minutes about the price of excellence. Let's start with excellence. I'm afraid it has become a rather over-worked word. It is also a word which, in a sense, begs its own definition: rather like that other over-used word, "meaningful," which Peter Ustinov once said means "there must be some significance here somewhere, but I haven't had time to sit down and figure out what it really is." Everything has its own individual potential for excellence. To demonstrate excellence you must do the particular things you are intended to do, and do them consistent! y, and very well indeed. What is it that Trinity should do, and do well, in order to demonstrate excellence? For several years now, that question has occupied the thoughts of many of us at the College: faculty, trustees, administration, students, and alumni. I think we have now come to a pretty general agreement on it. This agreement is reflected in the curricular recommendations

and the over-all institutional plan which will, I hope, receive formal approval in the coming weeks. Last spring I attended a retirement party for a splendid woman who had worked in our financial office for many years. She and her husband had escaped from the Ukraine during World War II and endured many dangers and hardships before arriving here in America. They had worked prodigiously hard and, in the great tradition of our country, established a solid place here for themselves and their son, now a physician. At the end of the evening, Irena made a short statement, and it went something like this: "It has been a privilege for me to work at this College and watch these fine young people gain knowledge, develop character, and prepare for life." I think Irena stated more eloquently than our formal plan, and certainly more succinctly, what Trinity must do to be excellent. Our job is to help students grow and develop their own special faculties, to help them prepare themselves for lives which will be reasoned and responsible, valuable to those around them and satisfying to themselves. We want the education they receive here to be not an end in itself, but the beginning of a life-long process in which the well-disciplined mind, stocked with at least some of the accumulated wisdom of the ages, trained in basic skills and habits of thought, and capable of clear reasoning and precise expression, joins with the well-disposed heart to produce the men

and women who can help hold ~ur fragile world together. To do our job, we offer students a demanding education in the liberal arts and sciences. We offer it on a residential campus, where they can also develop their social, political, and physical selves within a group that is more diverse than many have previously known. And we are set in urban America, a pretty good microcosm of the kind of world into which most of our students will graduate. It presents lively cultural opportunities and the chance to sample the world of the workplace which will soon be home for most of them. But it also displays the problems of our urbanized society; through internships and volunteer work, students can test the theories and values of the academy against the intractable realities of late-industrial America. This is Trinity's job. We have always done it well, and in some ways, I think we have done it better in recent years. Our faculty has been firming up academic standards, and the academic standing of our students has been rising. Opportunities for faculty travel and research have been increased, and phased early retirement made easier for those who wish it. We have enlarged and improved our Student Center and increased the number and quality of organized student activities in the dormitories. We have also begun to take greater advantage of the opportunities offered by this City as well as to discharge more conscientiously our responsibilities as corporate citizens. But our planning process has convinced us that to achieve the excellence of which it is capable Trinity must perform its proper tasks ever more consistently and well. Three successive faculty groups have examined our curriculum, and we now have before us a group of recommendations which should strengthen the already demanding education in the liberal arts and sciences which Trinity offers its students. They would be required to strengthen their quantitative skills, their consciousness of language as a medium of communication, and, above all, their ability to write clearly. They would also be expected at least to sample each of the major areas of the curriculum, including the natural sciences, and to complete a group of related courses which integrate knowledge across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. I am satisfied that our faculty committee has proposed a curriculum which will help Trinity perform its basic mission even more effectively than it does now: to achieve a higher degree of excellence.

We also recognize that life outside the classroom can be improved at Trinity. Living conditions for some are crowded and unattractive, even by the standards of our students, which are (I'm glad to say) a good deal more tolerant than my own. We are concerned, too, with the chasm which often seems to separate academic life in the classroom and social life in the dormitory. Our plans call for the addition of at least one new dormitory, to relieve crowding, and the devotion of greater attention (and more money) to renovating present dorms. We also plan to mount next year, on an experimental basis, a "mentor" system in which graduate students, under the direction of Trinity faculty members, will work with students in the dorms to offer constructive programs and generally improve the intellectual tone of student life outside the classroom. Our plans also call for other facilities which will help us do our job better. We need more space for the arts and also for engineering and computer instruction. Some of our athletic facilities should be improved, particularly the women students' locker rooms. And, perhaps even more important, we badly need added endowment funds to provide financial aid for needy students of high promise who want a Trinity education. We seek a diverse student body, and unless scholarship funds can keep pace with rising charges, our students are likely to become increasingly homogeneous and, necessarily, somewhat limited in their experience and perspective. These are some of the ways in which Trinity can do its own partiCular job better. They point the way to an even higher level of ex~ellence. What is the price of achieving this level of quality? In the first place, it is a great deal of hard work. We know that our students can achieve excellence only if

they work extremely hard. The demands on them have clearly increased and will be even greater under the requirements of the revised curriculum. We hope that students of Trinity will learn to order their lives and extend themselves to their full potential. But the demands of excellence will also be great on members of the faculty and administration. Teachers will have to prepare new courses and to work together, across departmental lines, to integrate some of their present offerings. It is their knowledge and their efforts which, more than anything else, help our students stretch and develop their minds: which determine the academic excellence of the institution. Our administrators must also work hard and imaginatively. As we set higher standards for student life outside the classroom, for our facilities, and for our relationships with the Hartford Community, it is they who must devise and execute the plans to attain them. Another price of excellence is a willingness to concentrate on major tasks and work together to accomplish them. Of course we are all individuals, for whom personal careers and professional recognition are properly important. But there is great satisfaction to be had in working hard with loyal colleagues to achieve common goals, and I suspect that without a

nancial aid. Local corporations and individuals also help Trinity. They know that it serves this community well by educating able people both of traditional college age and older, by being a conscientious institutional citizen, and by offering a variety of cultural and intellectual opportunities to the people of greater Hartford. Above all, we continue to look to our alumni for the means to build and maintain the quality of a T rinity education. As those who acquired it, they value it most. And as those who value it most, they are most willing to share the cost of maintaining and increasing its excellence. This is an unusually appropriate time for me to make the kind of announcement that college presidents dream of making. I am delighted to be able to tell you today of the largest single gift this College has ever received. Many of you here today knew Allan Kellogg Smith. He was the dean of the Connecticut Bar, and when he died last spring, at the age of 96, he was our oldest alumnus. Allan deeply loved the English language, and, as a lawyer, he knew the power of lucid expression. He deplored the decline in the quality of writing, which he perceived around him, and undertook his own program to assure that the graduates of his college achieved excellence in their writing and in their appreciation of English literature. Some years ago he endowed what became a very successful Writing Center at the College. He also began to establish a professorship - and now I will use his own engaging language "for the study and teaching of English in both its discursive and literary forms, including theories of language, rhetoric and criticism and their practical application to the teaching of composition and literature. The purposes of the Chair are to provide special courses and instructional activities in Advanced Composition which are directed toward the effective use of language to persuade and to elucidate with style and grace."

considerable measure of such commitment no institution can significantly raise, or long sustain, the high level of its excellence. We will also need financial resources, and as a private institution we must look to many sources. One largest single source, of course, is our students and their families. Fees at independent colleges are already high and going higher, and we cannot look exclusively to them for the funds which will enable us to do our 'job at the level to which we aspire. In recent years, we have had generous support from a number of major foundations that are sympathetic to the type of education we offer; I am confident that they will continue to help us refine and strengthen the academic experience of our students. Trinity parents have been extraordinarily generous Stlpporters. They realize that the College, from its endowment income and annual giving revenues, makes a large financial contribution to the education of even those students who are not on fi-

Mr. Smith also made arrangements which, on his death would complete the funding for the Writing Center and the professorship as well as provide substantial further support to the College's faculty, particularly in the Department of English. It is now estimated that these arrangements will add over $4 million to Trinity's endowment funds, the largest single amount ever received by this College. We are all deeply grateful for what Allan did. And we are delighted too, that with characteristically acute perception he saw a need which, properly met, would help this College attain the excellence to which it aspires. The life of Allan Kellogg Smith was an honor to this institution, and his generosity and devotion to it will be an inspiration to all of us. I have said a little about the price of excellence but nothing of its rewards. The reward for our students will be the excitement of beginning to realize their true potential. The reward for those of us who teach, manage and sustain will be knowledge that we have helped them discover their place and assume their responsibilities. The reward for this institution will be a lasting place among the finest Colleges in our land. •

n 1687 Sir Isaac Newton boldly announced: "I now demonstrate the frame of the System of the World." His Principia did just that, formulating among other wonders the law of universal gravitation. He banished doubt and tossed aside mystical beliefs cherished since the time of Aristotle. Ending two thousand years of superstition, guesswork and experimentation, Newton presented to the world mathematical proof that an everyday force such as gravity works throughout the universe. Here, his Principia proclaimed, is evidence that the world near and far operates according to quantifiable rules. The same invisible force that keeps the captive moon in orbit around the orbiting water planet also knocks an apple from a tree. But Isaac Newton wasn't so bold seven years before. In fact, he wasn't even certain of his own calculations until a spectacular comet lit up the sky at Christmas time in 1680. Master inventor and optician Robert Hooke made this low-key entry into his diary December 12, 1680: "comet appeared with a very long blaze." This "blaze," or tail, was seen all over the world from Paris to the new colony of Maryland, where another diarist called attention to "a Sword streaming from the horizon." England's Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed, joined in the excitement, predicting to a colleague, "I believe we shall see it longer than any hath been seen of late." Flamsteed was referring to another comet spotted heading toward the sun only a month before. Another distinguished British astronomer, Edmund Halley, wrote to Hooke at Christmas that he too had seen the new comet while crossing the English Channel to France. And the same day Hooke made his diary entry, Isaac Newton began recording the comet's tail observations into his notebook. Wise men all over Europe had the new bright spot in their eyes and agreed with the Astronomer Royal that what they saw was "some planet belonging formerly to another vortex now ruined," another wandering fragment far from earth which, according to the great Kepler, produced reflected light as it sped in a straight line out to infinity.

A COMET QUIZ *Where has Halley's comet been for 76 years? Since last visible from earth May 23, 1911, Halley's has traced its long cigar-shaped orbit to its farthest point from the sun, between the orbits of Neptune and Pluto. Since 1948 it has been gathering speed and "falling" back toward the sun's gravitational pull.

*How big is the comet? Average size; almost a mile in diameter with a tail as long as 25 million miles when nearest the sun.

*What is it made of? Halley proof of the laws of motion. The world had a general theory of dynamics powered by the verified law of universal gravitation. A light in the sky illuminated a theory and gave birth to the most brilliant rediscovery in western thought: that the universe is measurable, knowable. Terrestrial as well as celestial dynamics exist by the same ground rules. And the heavens, as distant as they are, operate not in mystery, but in harmony with man's mind. It was Edmund Halley who financed the publication of Newton's monumental Principia. Halley waited twenty-three more years to match the master's boldness with a prediction of his own: in 1758 the comet of 1682 would return. This time, however, it was a prediction unlike any before it. It had the backing of Isaac Newton, and was more like a promise. Neither man witnessed the 1758 apparition of "Halley's" comet, but sure enough the dawn sky that winter showed a new visitor, a vagabond tribute to two bold adventurers. Halley's comet came as expected, as if Halley's and Newton's view of the universe commanded its presence. As a result, when the comet next appears late this fall, no ruler need tremble on his throne and no one need wonder what all the fuss is about. It will just be one lucky generation's reminder that Sir Isaac's universe still holds true.• Steve Lowe M.A. '73 left a twelve-year career teaching French in Wayland, Massachusetts in 1979 to produce the radio program OUR TIME. In 1981 he began research on his first novel AURORA, published this past November by Dodd, Mead & Co. The fictional thriller is set in the presidential election year of 1992 and explores a question posed by Dr. Carl Sagan: "Could a rare but natural cosmic event, the impact of a sizable cometary fragment, trigger a nuclear war?" Lowe, who lives with ' his wife Shirley (Gernhardt) (M.A. 1975) in Hudson, Massachusetts, is currently at work on a second novel.

A collection of gases including methane, carbon dioxide, ammonia and water. A comet is, literally, a dirty snowball.

*Where did it originate? The latest theory pinpoints the distant Oort cloud as the cradle of our solar system's comets. This is a band of icy debris left over after planet-building five billion years ago.

*When will Halley's comet appear? It already has. Electronic equipment at California's Mount Palomar picked up its faint light as early as October, 1982. It will be visible to the naked eye by mid-Decemb~r 1985.

*Where is the best viewing location? Away from the atmospheric interference of large cities. Best viewing will be along the equator, in places like Hawaii, rural Arizona and in the Florida Keys.

*Why will the comet disappear in Janu¡ ary 1986? After splendid before-sunrise and after-sunset views in November, Halley's will be engulfed in sunlight until it passes the far side of the sun in January. Outgoing in February, it will reappear daily until April1986.

*How far will it be from the earth? At its closest approach: 21 million miles away.

*Does Halley's switch direction? No. Its tail trails its head until perihelion (the closest approach to the sun), then the tail precedes the head outward bound.

*Will the comet orbit our sun forever? Nothing lasts forever. With each perihelion, a comet loses some of its small mass to solar radiation through the tail. It will eventually disintegrate.


May Sarton:A Poet's Vision The distinguished writer talks about her journey to self-awareness. oet and writer May Sarton came to Trinity i~ October to give a reading of her poetry for an appreciative audience of over 400, and to take part in a freshman seminar based on her works. Her visit, sponsored by several departments and programs, resulted from an invitation by Dr. David Winer, dean of students and associate professor of psychology. Winer joined the legion of faithful Sarton fans when he discovered her works two years ago. As a psychologist, he was particularly attracted by her honest and compelling recounting of one person's search for greater self-understanding and growth. He subsequently integrated a study of her work in a freshman seminar, "On Becoming a Person." May Sarton was born in Belgium, the daughter of George Sarton, the eminent historian of science, and of Mabel Elwes Sarton, an English artist. For a time she pursued a career in the theatre, and later taught at Harvard and Wellesley, among other colleges, before devoting herself full-time to writing. A prolific writer, she is the author of more than 40 books, including At Seventy: A Journal, which was a best seller, and her latest novel, The Magnificent Spinster, published in October under the Norton imprint. She holds 12 honorary doctorates, and has been a Danforth Foundation Visiting Lecturer, a Guggenheim Fellow, and a Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar. In 1983 she gave the Ware Lecture at the Unitarian-Universalist Assembly and received the Avon/ COCOA Pioneer Woman Award, and in 1984 she received the Fund for Human Dignity Award in New York. She journeys frequently from her house by the sea in Maine for numerous public appearances. Her visit at Trinity afforded a first meeting with Winer, although the two had corresponded. The following interview by him and Reporter associate editor Roberta Jenckes records excerpts of that meeting, a conversation punctuated by Sarton's hearty laugh and rich and expressive voice, one which still rings with a former thespian's resonance.

P

Winer: I know we've communicated quite a bit about your work and about you. Do you hear from other psychologists? Sarton: Yes, I do. Not so much from psychologists. I hear a great deal from therapists, who use my work in therapy, especially Journal of a Solitude, you will not be surprised to hear. My favorite story is of a woman who wrote some years ago, and said, "My therapist suggested that I read Journal of a Solitude, and I did, and now I don't need the therapist any more." Jenckes: I think that book is a good example of day-by-day living of emotion and experience; it demonstrates how personal growth happens.

Sarton: Except, very few people can do it. You see, you've got to have back of the day-by-day experience a person ... a real person, a person who is. I see a great many journals - teachers often require students to keep journals - and they are so self-indulgent. They are so weak al)d lacking in perception, because the person writing it hasn't any. I'm 73 now, and I have a lot behind me so that I can say these things. I wouldn't have said them 20 years ago, that there is a person behind my books. That's what makes this work appeal to people, you see. Anybody can keep a day-by-day journal, but people wouldn't write to them, and say, "I gave up my therapist." There's a difference between Montaigne and a student who keeps a journal in his sophomore year which is full of self-adulation and self-pity. There are all these dangers. The journal is quite a difficult art. It looks very easy. Winer: Do you think a student of 18 or 19 or 20 would be able to be other than self-indulgent? Sarton: Right, there isn't a person there yet, you see. They're trying to find the person. People say one reason they like the Journal is because I'm honest. It's not easy to be honest. Everything in one wants to excuse oneself somehow, unconsciously. In Journal of a Solitude, for example, I've talked about anger as a problem. I've never really conquered my anger, but I'm very aware that it's a problem. I've found that young people who read the book were very touched that I admitted that I could be wrong. Somehow this got to them. I don't know why exactly. Jenckes: Because they struggle with it, too? Sarton: Yes, because they feel that perhaps you should always be right; there's something wrong with you if, say, your temperament is quick to anger. If they see somebody who is fairly well-known and has produced a lot who does have this problem, it makes them feel at least reassured enough to look at it, instead of simply pretending it isn't there. . Winer: One of the things you do so marvelously in your writings, and I'm sure in your personal life, is honor your feelings, and get those of us who are your readers to do the same. Is this something that it has taken a long time to do? Sarton: I think it's only that it took me a long time to justify it. The fear of feeling is at the root of a great deal that's wrong with us in America. You see, anything sexual, I don't need to tell you, is all right. It's feeling that is dangerous, because you're going to pay a price for it. You may be hurt, in other words. And people go around just trying not to be hurt. That's a terrible way '

to live, because by the time you're ready to die, where's your life? What's happened? People who are afraid of death are afraid of it because they've never lived.

Jenckes: At one time you were called a feminist writer. Do you think that applies to you? Sarton: I don't think I ever have been, really. I suppose I am a feminist. I'm certainly aware that women don't get a break in many of the professions, and in the academic world certainly not also. It's still a terrific struggle. There still is no equality. On the other hand, we have to live with men; they're part of our world. You're never going to eliminate men, obviously. One feminist poet, whom I won't quote by name, at one point wouldn't allow men in her audience. That seems to me going much too far. I love men. Men have been among my very dearest friends, and many of my poems are addressed to men. I've been nourished by men, and my friendships with men have been extremely important to me. So, I'm a feminist up to a point.

Jenckes: Humanist, perhaps? Sarton: Yes, I think humanist is a better word. Winer: On your book, Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Singing, it seems to me that there are two sets of reviews: one saying that it's really a lesbian book, the other saying it's really a book about writing. Sarton: It's about the creative woman really. It hadn't been done before. It's been very, very useful. I think it's helped a great many people in many ways, because here again we come back to this thing of sex versus feeling.

The literature on homosexuality is very often almost entirely concerned with sex. I'm not concerned with it at all in my work. It's love that matters. It's the quality of feeling, the quality of love. This really transcends the sexual preference. It happens that women have been my muses. But, I've had such marvelous male friends and lovers, but long ago when I was much younger, and at one time really did think that I wanted to marry. I'm glad that I didn't because here again there is a difference between men and women. It's very much harder to be a woman artist than a man artist. Here, I'm a feminist. You just have to look around. A woman who comes out of college with a degree and has been bent toward say, writing or being a philosopher or whatever it may be, marries and immediately for ten years, she's frustrated in all that she intended to do. That's what I tell people who write me desperate letters saying, "I'm so tired. I have three children." I say, "Wait ten years, then you can do it. But, if you try to do it now, you're going to be so exhausted that you're going to be neither a good mother nor a good philosopher. You're just going to be drowning." Now, this is changing because men are helping women. I think things are possible now that weren't when I wrote Mrs. Stevens. But, the young man who comes out of college and marries gets a helper, . . . it's just the opposite. He gets somebody who cooks his meals, takes care of him, and gives him some children and a lovely home, so he only benefits by marrying. Whereas for the woman, who often wants to marry and


''The fear of feeling is at the root of a gr~at deal that's wrong with us in America.'' should be fulfilled in that way, it's much harder. That's the point.

the song- "I Did It My Way," by Frank Sinatra? I mean that.

Jenckes: Do you think that solitude has been key for your creative output? Sarton: Yes. I find it absolutely essential. I don't know

Winer: Do you think the critics are gaining greater understanding and becoming a little kinder as the years progress? Sarton: No, I really don't think so, and curiously

what's happened to me until I'm alone and can think it over. That's another thing, by the way, about feeling. So often people rush out, say, go on a beer-drinking thing - I'm thinking of young people in college with their pals - and talk about everything; and get drunk, and come back. If they don't think over what has happened on that occasion - whatever it was, whether it was good talk or bad talk, or they had some insights about somebody they hadn't had before - if they just put it behind them, they're never going to grow. So, I think everybody needs a lot of solitude. And, again, this is one of the problems with a young woman with three small children:

enough, my best reviews have come from men, not women. I think women are very jealous of other women who succeed. I hate to say this, but in my case, it's the truth. The meanest reviews have been by women, although I've had some very good support from Carolyn Heilbrun, the professor at Columbia University who is going to be my literary executor. You see, the problem is, Dave, that I'm traditional in form. I didn't do something new with form, and I think this is the real root of it. I came just too late. If I had been of the generation of Louise Bogan or Edna St. Vincent Millay, or Elinor Wylie, I would probably have had very good reviews, and be in the anthologies now, but I came just 20 years after that. The other thing is that lyric poetry is unfashionable. I love it. But, it's not meat for the critics. You can't go into the symbolism - I think the critics love puzzles, like T.S. Eliot, or Pound. "The Olive Grove" that I wrote is a really good lyric, but what do you say about it? I haven't had a good review in the Times for 20 years, on about 20 books, some of which are classics and are being taught today at Trinity College, at Harvard, and at other places. Everywhere I go people are teaching my books, not always in the English Department. Women's studies - of course, I'm a natural for that - has helped me, because it's opened the door into my work for great numbers of students.

Jenckes: Some people aren't comfortable with solitude. Sarton: It's terrifying, because at the other side is lone16

liness. I've said it, and it's often pointed back to me, that loneliness is the poverty of self, and solitude is the riches of self. Right now, for instance, I have enough to think about -of course, I've had a very long life - I could just sit and think for days. I do often on planes. I suddenly go back over and think about something that happened a long time ago. I've been editing my mother's letters, which are absolutely marvelous. They'll be published, 50 of them, next spring. I'm very excited about it. She was a very extraordinary person, because she left me absolutely free ... no possessiveness. I left home at 17, an only child, to go into the theatre, but she was always there, and she had her own life. She was an artist and a very distinguished person in her own right. This may be one of the things one would say to parents: you must have your own life because otherwise the child does feel possessed even if you're not possessive in an obvious way. If the mother doesn't have something which is going to be there when the children leave home, what is going to happen? Winer: As I read many of your books, it seems to me that there are common threads throughout, be it poetry or prose. What would you say are some of those common threads from

your perspective? 路 Sarton: Well, the importance of solitude, and the point you hit before, which is that fear of feeling is often what keeps people from growth, self-protectiveness because you may be hurt. I've been very badly hurt many times, in various ways, by the critics, by lovers and so on. But, I wouldn't go back and not do something that had hurt me. I wouldn't go back and not write the book that the critics didn't like because these books are getting through to my real audience without the critics. What's

Winer: I know you have respect for those craftsmen who work for craft's sake. I find many people today, not just the adolescents, are less concerned with doing a good job than they are with getting an appropriate reward, i.e., money, for getting the job done, whether there's quality there or not. Sarton: I think it's everywhere. I think it's in writing, too. Is it that technology has done this? So much is done by machines, that people don't any longer have this feeling about work they do with their hands or even with their minds. Writing is so careless. I won't teach poetry any more. I'm asked to do ~orkshops. I won't, because the work that's shown is so bad, and they're so pleased with themselves, and for ,nothing for something which is again self-indulgent. They have an idea, and they write down a few sentences, and then they say, "that's how it came to me, and I'm not going to change it. It's perfect." Well, this is maddening to me. What I consider the very beginning, the very first thing you do, of course, is that, but then you begin to work with it. You begin to think about it. You begin to think about feeling. Poetry


Denise Rosano '86, teaching assistant in Winer's freshman seminar, presented May Sarton with a card from the class.

The Olive Grove

Here in the olive grove, Under the cobalt dome, The ancient spirits move And light comes home, And nests in silvery leaves. It makes each branch a cloud, And comes and goes, and weaves Aerial song aloud. Here every branch is gifted With spiritual fruit And every leaf is lifted To brightness from the root. Where the terrestrial plane Meets vision and desire, The silver and the green Are strung on a great lyre, And leafy seraphim The sun and shade among Turn each grove to a hymn; Whole hillsides are in song. Silvery, shadowy now The fruit over our head, Who lie and hardly know which is light, which is bread.

is a match of intellect and emotion, and they must both be at white heat, and I think this is what most people who start writing poetry do not realize. They think the feeling is enough. They don't realize that the critical mind is at work, you see, at once. Why do you choose one word and not another - because it isn't accurate or because it doesn't sound right in the sentence. There are about a thousand different reasons for choosing a certain word in a poem. You see, when you're inspired to write a poem, you are in a state of high excitement, and this is where poetry is very different from anything else. I compare it to playing very intense games of tennis, perhaps at Wimbledon. You've got to be there, fully there, and most people are half there, half or quarter there when they're writing a paper in college.

Jenckes: Issues of social justice, like apartheid, have really concerned you for a long time ... Sarton: A long time. I was in the theatre in the middle of the Depression, and the Civic Repertory, that marvelous theatre in New York, failed for lack of$100,000 a year. Of course, I was quite radical then. I wanted to go to Spain during the Civil War, of course against Franco. My parents were Socialists - this is talked about in I Knew a Phoenix, "The Fervent Years" - the years before World War I when people still believed in the perfectability of man and that we could all work together and make a better world. I think World War I was the beginning of the disillusionment of that, and then Nazism was even worse. I suppose I've always been a liberal. I'm proud of being a liberal. One of my novels, Faithful Are the Wounds, deals with being a liberal. It's about the suicide of a professor at Harvard who was a liberal, a Christian Socialist as he called himself, and I suppose that's what I am in a way. I feel everybody should have a chance to do what is in him to do, and every child should have a decent education and enough food, and of course this simply isn't true in the United States today. As you say, we have this huge underclass. As long as it exists, we've got to fight. And, apartheid is so shocking. That's the pariah among the nations now. They've got to face it. Finally something is going to happen. There's no way to stop it. _ I think not to care about pain and suffering in your world, in my world, is almost as if you've had a lobotmn.y of some kind. Some part of the psyche has been removed. Poets have to be concerned with the world, you know. "The unacknowledged legislators of the world": I think it was Wordsworth who said that. This is where something like H.O.M.E. in Maine, which I support, is so marvelous. It was started by a nun who left the convent because she, a little bit like Mother Teresa, saw the suffering outside the walls. She has

single-handedly lifted a whole poverty-stricken, alcoholridden, unemployed part of Maine, and done so much, opening a day care center, building houses, giving courses, getting some of the alcoholics to AA. What H.O.M.E. has done for me is to give me back my faith that one person can still move mountains. The impossible can still be done if you have a dream. The thing I still feel about America which I used to always say is that it's the country in the world where, if you have a dream, you have the greatest chance of realizing it. But, the tragedy is the poverty of the dreams. Jenckes: You have written in concern about the treatment of elderly in this country. What kind of solutions do you envision, particularly for the emotional starvation of the elderly, which is so shocking? Sarton: There are lots of solutions. Some of it has been done, like Meals on Wheels. I think more and more what we're realizing now is that the elderly must be kept at home. The nursing home is not the answer until the person is terribly ill, and has to be physically taken care of. It's traumatic for somebody, say 85 years old, who suddenly finds himself in a hospital room, with none of his own things, no tat. Animals, we're realizing more and more, are terribly important in keeping people going. I feel it already. I have to get up at five, which is very good for me, because of my dog, who wants to go out. I'm not retired. But, if I were, it could occupy quite a lot of my time just taking care of the animals, walking the dog, talking to the cat, and having them with me. It's your family. So, I think more an9 more the emphasis now is se~ ting up ways by which old people can be allowed to stay at home, for instance, having somebody who would take them out once a week to shop and in a very subtle way be supervising what they're eating. An awful lot of old people are starving, who have lots of money, be-

cause they're afraid of spending. That's one of the psychological things that happens. They're afraid there'll be no money. What we have to do is find ways to make it possible for people to be able to live alone ... visiting nurses - somebody who comes in once a week and looks at the health situation - and somebody who helps with meals. More important than the food, they know that the person is alive, and it's somebody to say, "How are you today," a voice that comes into the house. A lot of old people look at "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," because he has this faculty with little children, but now, they're realizing with old people, of making you feel loved. He says, "I like you just the way you are," and "Won't you be my neighbor?" I've known two older women for whom that was the high point of the day. It's very human ... touching. Jenckes: What do you feel your mission in life is? Sarton: At the end of a film about me I'm asked, "How would you like to be remembered?" I didn't know that they were going to ask that question. I could have thought of a great many answers, like, "I hope I've written one immortal poem." What I said was, "As wholly human, ifi am." My mission, ifi have one, is to help people to become wholly human and to keep on growing myself ... to be more and more human, not less and less, as some people become as they get older. Not to ever be rigid, to still flow with things. Maybe to come to no permanent conclusions, but to keep on asking questions. Jenckes: Do you think you have a good sense of understanding yourself as a person? Sarton: I think so, yes. I mean, I still have problems, you know. Winer: That's being wholly human. Sarton: Yes, exactly. Jung says somewhere that the really essential problems are never solved. I mean, like my anger. I have much less of it now, partly because I'm not in an intimate relationship with anybody and partly because I'm not fighting the whole world to get my work through, which I was for so many years. The frustration was enormous, and now I see an audience that is very nourishing and fulfilling. And I feel, well, it's all right, Sarton, you've made it. Y oil don't have to struggle so hard any more. •


Trintype Evenings with nothing whatever to do are what Jerry Moshell could use more of. "From the second week in September until the last week in November, I essentially had no free nights," he says. Chairman of Trinity's music department, Moshell teaches courses, directs the orchestra and mounts two musical theatre productions a year. On the occasional evening that he is not booked for a rehearsal or performance, he is off to a local university or concert hall, reviewing music and theatre productions for The Hartford Courant. In a position that requires an unusual degree of versatility, Moshell, a California native with degrees from Pomona and Harvard, views himself primarily as a performer-a pianist and conductor-and an educator, rather than as a scholar. Part of his pedagogical role is introducing the 85-or-so students in Concert Choir to complex musical literature, and helping them to see the value in mastering a difficult repertoire. "In Choir, we do a lot of works that are just plain, downright hard. These are not the sort of things students have sung in high school, or may ever sing again, if they go on in adult choirs," Moshell explains. Stravinsky's Les Noces, which the Choir performed in November, is "a conceptually difficult piece from any point of view. I think students sometimes want to sing more things that are more fun. My position is that you only have real fun if you do something challenging, do it well, and have learned something new in the process." There's plenty of fun to be had by the cast and the audiences who flock to the musical theatre revues and productions, held in the Austin Arts Center each term. In selecting the shows, Moshell considers the pool of available talent on campus, and the quality of a show's lyrics, theatrics, and music. "Also, I am, by and large, dedicated to the concept of the ensemble musical, which means you have a group of people who are more or less equal in the cast, like in Sondheim's Company or even in Grease," Moshell explains. "We have a lot of very good students, and an ensemble-oriented show gives a number of them good parts." No preference is given to

music majors in casting the productions, and freshmen get their share of the limelight. "Kids with good voices have a lot of opportunities at Trinity," Moshell notes, including Choir, musical theatre, Chapel Singers, the Pipes and After Dark. The IS-member orchestra, augmented by musicians from the Hartford community, presents a concert each spring and plays with the Choir or in a musical theatre production in the fall. Other students play in the Jazz Band. A professional chamber music group, headed by artist-in-residence Linda Laurent, has also featured Trinity undergraduates as guest artists. On the more strictly academic side, Trinity's music department offers survey courses, populated by primarily non-majors and nonmusicians, as well as classes for advanced music students. Interdisciplinary courses, such as Women in Western Music and the Psychology of Music, have wide appeal. About 60 undergraduates enroll each term in Trinity's private lessons program. The hub of musical activity on campus is the Austin Arts Center. Though the facilities there are ex cellent, high on Moshell's wish list are a concert hall for the Choir and a place for rock bands to practice and store their equipment. About five years ago, Moshell was invited to become a music and theatre critic for The Hartford Courant, a role he finds valuable. "It's given me a good overview of what's going on musically in the Hartford

area and how we fit in at Trinitythe sorts of things that we can do that both complement and can add to the musical life of the region." Some of Moshell's candid reviews have stirred the ire of concert and theatre goers, and he admits that "there was a time when I would look with trepidation at the lettersto-the-editor column each morning." But, he says, out of the hundreds of reviews he's written, he wouldn't retract any of them, except maybe one or two that turned out to be too favorable. As much as he values high musical standards in the performances he reviews or directs, Moshell gives almost equal weight to what he calls "the sense of musical community" that students, working together in Choir or on a show, can develop. He speaks with satisfaction about the camaraderie among Choir members, particularly those who participate in the group's East coast tour, every other spring. Moshell has shared in these friendships, and in the last several months alone, he has traveled to see six professional productions in which "music department alumni" from the classes of '78 to '84 have had leading roles. "In a sense, Choir is the largest fraternity on campus, and it's certainly a coed one. And the people who do musical theatre get very close. They learn to depend on each other and learn from each other at the same time they are engaged in an activity that enlightens their aural and aesthetic awareness." -Kathleen Frederick


Homecoming 1985 R

ecord crowds and renewed participation by the student body made Homecoming '85 a memorable weekend. The celebration began Friday night with a rally on the Quad organized by the senior class and Lee Coffin '85, assistant director of alumni relations, who served as master of ceremonies. Highlights of the rally were performances by the Trinity Jazz Band and cheerleaders and cameo appearances by Vice President Tom Smith, Professor Ted Mauch and Coach Don Miller. Football Captain Mark Murphy capped the evening by torching a Wesleyan "W." Saturday saw the return of many graduates, particularly from the younger classes. Alumni/ae teams played the varsity field hockey and soccer squads, while another group heard President English talk about Trinity's future. Other highlights included the

Sports FOOTBALL (5-3)~~~~~= The Trinity football program entered its second century exactly as it finished its first - as an exciting, pass-oriented team that usually wins. The 1985 season, the team's 101st, was the sixth consecutive that ended on the top side of .500. In the process, the Bantams thrilled the fans with some heroic comebacks and by throwing the ball more than any previous Trinity team. In the opener, quarterback Dan Tighe was named to the ECAC Honor Roll in his first varsity start by completing 23 of 33 for 310 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 45-29 romp over Bowdoin. Eight of the receptions and one touchdown went to Mike Doetsch. But it was Doetsch's punt returns that changed the game around. Tied at 7 in the second period, he took a punt 53 yards for a score that took the life out of the Polar Bears. His 129 yards on the day (on only four returns) broke the school record for punt returns of 118, set by Milt Marquet way back in 1934 against Wesleyan. The next week's game at Bates was delayed 24 hot,~rs by Hurricane Gloria. In the first Sunday game in .

memory, the team displayed for the first time its great comeback abilities. Down 14-3 at the half, Tighe threw 3 second-half touchdowns for a 24-21 victory. The first two came in the third quarter to Rich Nagy. After Bates scored to go up 21-17, Tighe hit Ted Shannon on 4th and 10 from the Bates 13-yard-line with under six minutes to go for the winning score. Trinity sloshed through the monsoon of Parents Weekend to defeat Williams for a seventh straight year, 14-13. Williams used two Trinity turnovers near the end zone to grab a 13-0 halftime lead. It would have been 14-0 but cornerback Mike Dolan blocked the second extra point. The Bantams scored twice in the third period and Mark Mignone's extra points were the difference. Linebacker John Montgomery had fun in the mud with 21 tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery and a pass break-up. Week four saw Trinity again trailing by a doubledigit margin at intermission. Tufts led 12-0 and the Bantams had the Jumbos just where they wanted them. Within six minutes of the second half Trinity had cut the deficit to 12-10. Tufts held on valiantly, but with 2:19 to go Trinity began a 69-yard, 12-play drive that featured 4th-and-long passes to Shannon


JUNIOR QUARTERBACK Dan Tighe stood tall under the pressures of succeeding Trinity legend Joe Shield and, in this picture, of the opposing pass rush to throw for 17 81 yards and 17 touchdowns, numbers that are .inferior only to Shield's of 1983 and 1984.

and Don Fronzaglia. Tighe needed all 51 of his recordtying passes Qay Bernardoni vs. Williams, 1968) as the last one went to Wally Wrobel for the winning touchdown with just 55 seconds remaining. The 18-15 victory proved costly, however, as defensive linemen Andre John and Tony DeNicola were lost for the year with injuries. Along with the pre-season injuries to lineman Randy Vyskocil and linebacker Todd Fairfax, both seniors, these losses would soon catch up with the Bantams. The effect began to show the next week in Clinton, New York. Hamilton gave Trinity its first loss of the year by taking a 24-6 halftime lead and cruising home, 30-6. It was the first road loss after an amazing 11game win streak, dating back to another game in upstate New York, Union 1982. The Blue and Gold got back on the winning track at home with a 34-27 wild game with Coast Guard. Using a no-huddle offense for over three quarters, the Coast Guard quarterback passed for 412 yards and

ran for 92 more in a record-setting performance, but threw five interceptions to self-destruct. Three were picked off by safety Mike DeLucia who also blocked an extra point and had 3 pass break-ups to be named to the ECAC Honor Roll. Initially flustered and confused by the game's pace, the Trinity defense, led by Fran Funaro's 2 1/z sacks, bore down and caged the Bears. By then, the Trinity offense had enjoyed a big day of its own, breaking the 20-20 halftime tie and leading 34-20. A pair of sophs had career highs: fullback Wrobel rushed for 75 yards and 3 touchdowns and Fronzaglia broke the school record with 15 pass receptions. The old record of 13 had been set in 1971 by Ron Duckett and tied in 1973 by Duckett and in 1984 by Tim McNamara. Amherst led Trinity 15-0 after six minutes the next week and a fluke interception just before half provided them with a 22-0 advantage. This proved even too much for the Comeback Kids. The gap was closed to 22-12 before the Lord Jeffs put an end to the issue with a 35-12 win. Homecoming '85 saw the Wesleyan Cardinals take out five years of frustrations in the 100th anniversary of the first meeting by winning for the first time since 1979,41-20. Tighe completed 20 of 39 for 271 yards


Sports and 3 touchdowns but it was not enough to defeat the inspired men from Middletown. Todd Nizolek's 10 punts tied the record he already shared with three others, and his total of 56 for the year broke the mark of 51 by Bill Schauffler in 1979. It is a small senior class that leaves the Summit, but the loss will be felt severely on the lines. Tackle Mike Reilly, guards Jim Sickinger and George VanderZwaag and center Paul Castonia made for an experienced offensive line. Defensive tackle Funaro and team Captain Mark Murray at end were near the top in tackles and at the top in sacks. Along with the departure of Doetsch, the 1986 Bantams will be hard-pressed to find replacements. With players like Tighe, Wrobel, Fronzaglia and most of the defense returning, however, it should not be long before they record their next win, Coach Don Miller's lOOth of his career.

necticut College led Trinity 1-0 with under 8 minutes left before Pierce banged home a pair for the win. Williams was beaten 2-0. It was actually the second time the Bants had shut-out the Ephwomen. A 4-0 Trin lead with about 10 minutes remaining on Parents' Weekend was wiped out when the officials decided the rain and mud had created "dangerous conditions." Forced to re-play the game, Trinity again prevailed. The unusual conditions of Westfield's astraturf field were overcome with a 2-1 victory in overtime. Division II Keene State succumbed to a relentless Bantam attack in .a 2-1 thriller. In the tourney, Bowdoin was out-classed 4-1, and in the final, the defense made Vogel's first-half goal stand up as the game-winner. Just as in 1984, Trinity h ad defeated the #1 seed and host for the championship. Sheppard, now owner of a gaudy 96-30-10 record, was impressed with the way her team "bit, and scratched, and crawled their way" to the tournament after .digging such a big hole. Once there, the Trinity "killer instinct" took over, Sheppard claimed. "There is a winning attitude and tradition of success. It is passed down from class to class," she continued, "No-

FIELD HOCKEY (11-2) N :I.A.C. CHAMPIONS==-::==:=====:

28

Like the heavyweight champion who gets off the canvas from a first-round knockdown to keep on fighting and ends up defending his crown, Robin Sheppard's field hockey team rebounded from a pair of early season upsets to defend their Northeast Intercollegiate Athletic Co"nference championship successfully. They ended the year with 10 straight wins including tournament victories over Bowdoin and Tufts, wins which were especially sweet as they avenged the two earlier losses. Bowdoin had surprised Trinity 3-2 in the opener and Tufts had held on from a 5-l lead to edge the Lady Bants 5-4 in the third game. Suddenly faced with the unfamiliar position of having a losing record, Coach Sheppard rallied her troops. It was a particularly tense time as the losses "made each game a mustwin," according to the coach of 12 years. Responding best were sophomores )en Brewster and Ellie Pierce. Neither had scored in the first three games, but Brewster went on to record a smashing 15 goals and Pierce added 7 with 6 assists. Brewster's total is second only to Dottie Bundy's 16 in 1978, and she not only tied a school record with 4 goals against Mt. Holyoke, but ,she did so in one half! Others leading the attack were Ginny Biggar (8 goals, 5 assists) and Elise Boelhouwer (7, 1). These players would be the first to admit, however, that they were dependent upon the work of tbe mid-fielders and backs, such as tea,m Captain and M.V.P. Priscilla Altmaier, Ginny Vogel, Betse Jones, Kate Simonds, Laura Von Seldeneck, and sweeper Anne Scribner. Netminder Pam Ingersoll gave up only 8 goals in the fin allO games and set a team record with 137 saves. Simonds was awarded the new Coach's Award for dedication and attitude. Certain victories were particularly memorable. Con-

body wants to renege on that." Nobody did. And losing only three seniors, Altmaier, Biggar and Simonds, it is doubtful that in the near future anyone will.

MEN'S SOCCER (4-8)====:====:====:====:= The men's soccer team fl irted with a .500 record this year but fell short in the end dropping their final four games to finish at 4-8. After an opening day loss to Coast G uard, Robie Shults' group won four of their next seven, three on shut-outs by junior goalie Bill Eastburn. Chris Hyland had the only goal in a 1-0 game at Connecticut College. After a loss, Hyland had a pair and George Manthous scored once, all in the first half, to beat WPI 3-0. Following a loss to powerful Eastern Connecticut, the Bantams went to Tufts where Hyland, Manthous, and Matt Gandal pitched in a goal apiece in another 3-0 triumph on the road. Trinity got its only home victory when John Ralston scored early in the second half of a fightmarred game with AI C. Trinity won 2-1 and had a 4-4 record. Things went downhill from there, however, and in the final four games Trinity found the net only three times. Of the four games, they trailed at the half only once, but were outscored 7- 1 in the second half. T en of the team's 16 goals came off the foot of junior forward H yland. The speedster became the first Bantam to score in double digits since Duffy Shea had 10 in 1976. Other top veterans returning for 1986 are halfback Murphy VanderVelde, fullbacks Jim Crews and Pete Voudouris, and, at forward, Manthous who had 2 goals and 2 assists. Three freshmen emerged as talented players for the future. Ralston (2 goals) and Gandal played forward and fu llback Steve Ryan proved fast enough to usually be assigned to cover the opponent's top player. T hree seniors finished their careers as valuable contributors. T earn Captain Pete Ammirati was an excellent playmaker at halfback, fullback Bob St. George played tough defense, and Chris Downs was the emotional and vocal leader at mid-field and sweeper.

The year "was something to build on" for Coach Karen Erlandson. Only one player graduates, CoCaptain Gina Cappelletti, a stand-out at sweeper. Other veterans who played well were Co-Captain fullback Betsy McKay, speedy halfback Ceronne Berkeley, and at forward, smooth-dribbling Lyford and Lisa Lake whose indomitable spirit led her to a team-high four goals. Promising rookies included Tracey Decker and Layne Pomerleau who each had a pair of goals.

VOLLEYBALL (7 .. 5) ====:====:====:====:====: Finishing with a flourish, Trinity's first-ever varsity volleyball team posted a 7-5 record. Under the tutelage of Coach Mary Eckerson, the Lady Bants rode through the storm of a 1-3 mid-season slump and won their last three matches to end up winners. "We had trouble in the middle with our serving and came on strong in the last few matches," the coach said. The lowpoint came with a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Fairfield in which Trinity had led 2-1, and then a 3-0 blanking at the hands of Wesleyan. Bouncing right

WOMEN'S SOCCER (1-9),=:::::::==:==: Suffering through the loss of seven starters to graduation and four juniors to study abroad, the women's soccer team stumbled to a 1-9 finish. The roster of mostly freshmen and sophomores fought gamely to the end but was unable to keep up with superior competition. The year's high point came in the mud of Parents' Weekend. The Lady Bants got two first half goals from Cary Lyford and sloshed their way to a 3-2 win over Williams. T hat kind of scoring punch was an all-too-rare commodity, however, as the team managed to find the net only 11 times, being shut-out on four occasions. Inexperience hurt Trinity at both ends of the field. No matter how well the Lady Bants played between the 20-yard lines, they could not seem to finish off plays offensively, and suffered momentary, but crucial, breakdowns on defense.

GINA CAPPELLETTI was a soccer Co-Captain and was selected to play in the New England All-Star Game.

WATER POLO (5 .. 6} ====:====:====:====:=: It was a fairly good year for the water polo team as victories were recorded over Bridgewater State, Bowdoin, Wesleyan and Coast Guard (twice). Late in the season the lack of substitutes caught up with the Ducks and they fell to powerful teams who were also well rested. Leadership by the senior tri-captains was important on this club team that is student-run. Barb Brennan and Stuart Szikles were stand-outs on defense and Adam Kimmick played forward. The top scorer was again sophomore Nick Clifford who posted a tremendous 8-goal performance in the 18-10 win over Bridgewater and had 7 more in the 16-8 triumph over Coast Guard. Freshman Roberto Sifuentes was a key playmaker and was the second leading scorer. Sophomore goalkeeper Andy Zimmerman played well, especially when Trinity took defending champion Amherst into overtime before losing 13-11.

WOMEN'S TENNIS (9-2)

SIS VAN CLEVE gets set to return the ball for Trinity's first varsity volleyball team. The Captain and only senior, Van Cleve led the team to a 7-5 record.

back, Trinity won a 5-game match for the first time, edging Quinnipiac 3-2 in a match that saw 4 games go into overtime. A doubleheader sweep of Albertus Magnus and Becker ensured a winning season. Trinity was led by MVP and Captain Sis VanCleve. The only senior, she was the inspirational leader and gave 110% with great saves and spikes. The other five starters were all sophomores. Kris Cadelina played a very consistent season and Kathleen S'trauss put on a fine display of spiking down the stretch. They will cocaptain the squad next year. Liz Breiner, Debbie Smith and Chever Voltmer also played well. Off the bench, freshman Kristin Gilson supplied a spark of pep and junior Susan Babcock, who plays center for ,

=======

The women's tennis team enjoyed an excellent season, winning their final 6 matches to end at 9-2 and then finishing fourth in the New England Tournament. T earn Captain Claire Slaughter compiled her third undefeated season in four at #1, going 11-0 and totaling 40 career wins, 5 more than the previous Trinity best of 35 by Wendy Jennings '79. Robin Wentz and Patti Neumann competed at #2 and #3 while Chris Sanden gave Trinity a strong #4 with an 8-3 year. Priscilla Payne and Beth Cottone shared time at #5 while Lauren Lovett went 7-2 at #6. Trinity jumped out with 3 quick wins, although the Amherst match came down to the #3 doubles team of Sanden and Payne, who lost the first set and came back for the win. After a pair of losses Trinity was forced inside on Parents' Weekend against Williams in a match where singles players were prohibited from doubles competition. Again it was the #3 doubles team, now Margaret Driscoll and Krisi Kinsley, who were last on the court and who pulled it out for Trinity. The season's final match against Smith was another nail-biter as the #2 pairing of Sanden and Chris Pastore had the final and decisive victory. Overall, second-year Coach Wendy Bartlett was pleased with her team's performance in that they never had an offday and "beat all the teams they were supposed to." In the New England Tournament Sanden lost her bracket's singles final while Slaughter and Neumann reached the consolation finals after first-round upsets. Payne and Lovett made it to the semi-finals to contribute points to the Trinity total. The #1 doubles duo of Slaughter and Neumann who went 8-1 on the season won their bracket. The Trinity total of 21 points was 1/z point shy of third-place Brandeis who trailed Tufts and Amherst.


CROSS~COUNTRY

====:====:====:====:====:

Before the season began, new Coach Alex Magoun expected an excellent season from the women's team while preparing for a rebuilding year from the men. That is exactly what he got as the women went 10-5 and the men finished with a 2-8 mark. Magoun called the women's season "very satisfying." Senior Co-Captains Alex Steinert and Ann Malabre finished out excellent careers as Trinity's top runners, although Malabre missed the early portion of the schedule with an injury. In her stead, freshman Gail Wehrli showed promise by giving Trinity another strong runner. Behind the front group, a number of runners "formed a pack," according to the coach, and ran together, giving each other motivation and support. This group included senior Wendy Pillsbury, juniors Jenny Elwell and Meredith Lynch, and freshman Sue Kinz. Magoun was especially pleased with the women's performance in meets at Smith and Babson. Although Steinert consistently was fastest, and won the MVP Award, it is Malabre, now fully recovered, who has the best hope of placing well at the upcoming New England Championship and qualifying for the national championships in Ohio in late November. The men's team, not overly deep to begin the season, was beset with injuries to two of the top six runners. Considering this, Magoun was not too upset with how his young Bantams fared. The only senior, Co-Captain Brian Oakley, led Trinity in every race and was MVP. Aside from the victories over Hartford and Babson, the highlight was Oakley's thrilling duel with the top runner from Williams in the downpour of Parents Weekend. Particularly excited about trying to beat the school of which his father is president, Oakley clocked the fourth best ever by a Trinity racer on the home course- 26:04. Unfortunately, he and the Bantams were edged out in this meet. Junior CoCaptain Paul Deslandes, soph Matt Donahue and freshman Sam Adams give Magoun hope for the future.

SHIELD PLAYING IN CANADA Former Trinity star quarterback Joe Shield '85 is back from Canada, after a stint with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. Shield, who was drafted last spring by the Green Bay Packers of the NFL, made their regular season squad, but was released after three games. The consensus among football fans was that the Packers were not disappointed in Shield, who was a combined 7 of 13 for 60 yds., with no touchdowns or interceptions, in pre-season games against the Dallas Cowboys and

the New Yark Jets. But the team decided it needed a more experienced third-string quarterback, behind the inconsistent and injury-prone Lynn Dickey and Randy Wright. Green Bay signed Jim Zorn, a nineyear veteran, to replace Shield. Once released by the Packers, Shield was a free agent, and got a call from Toronto. Before heading north, Shield stopped in Hartford to watch his old teammates defeat Williams on October 5. "I'm disappointed, but I understand Green Bay's thinking," Shield said. Spotted in the crowd at Trinity's game at Amherst November 2 after the CFL season had ended, Shield commented that he had enjoyed his Canadian experience although he did not see any action. Though happy for the chance with Toronto, Shield hasn't given up on the NFL and predicted, "I'll be somewhere in training camp next summer."

Well, here we go again! " 'Wes-le-yan' is coming to town." How many of us came back to greet her as of yore!

GEORGE FERRIS told me he expected to make it, and your SCRIBE was due to meet him, God willing, if my oldest son, De De Schmitt, Yale '50, would keep away from the "Bowl" that day, and take me up and back in one piece. I don't drive much these days and I suspect some of you feel the same way. George Ferris tells me he has had glaucoma in one eye and is worried about his golf. He still shoots to his "14" handicap. Nothing like that in our Connecticut State Seniors. My doctor allows me 9 holes per week and I feel lucky about that.

A recent note from Jane, daughter of our Class Agents for many years, Louisa and SYD PINNEY, informs me that her parents had a grandson, WILLIAM GRISWOLD PINNEY, Syd Jr.'s son, graduate from Trinity in May '85, a member of Phi Beta Kappa. She adds, "Wouldn't Dad have been proud!" An obituary in the Hartford Caurant told me of the death of DAVID GABERMAN, ' 89, of North Miami Beach, FL, on Saturday, August 10 (see In Memory). He was a former pediatrician and practiced in West Hartford many years. Services and interment were held in Florida. Dave left Trinity after two years to attend medical school and I can't recall having seen him since, although for years we both lived in West Hartford. He was one of five of our class members who entered the medical profession: MAX BERK, JOHNNY MITCH- . ELL, PEN HAHN, and MYRON JACKSON. A few small contributions have been received for our Class Memorial Scholarship Fund. Our eight surviving class members will appreciate it if any of the readers of this column would care to contribute in memory or honor of any of our class members.

Just perhaps some of you might have noticed the absence of any 1927 class notes in the fall issue of the Reporter. At the time of the deadline for reporting there was the usual zero of news received from classmates. For some reason or other I just could not get into my usual filler of doggerel so I missed the deadline. Well, what do you know? The very next day I received a nice letter from ROGER HARTT! At that point they had attended seven high school graduations of their grandchildren with four more to go plus a college graduation! At present he has two boys at Dartmouth, a boy and a girl at the University of Iowa and a boy at Hope College. His oldest grandson was to be married in August and the only reason he was not at the Half Century Club dinner was because of a mixup in dates (his). Now that's the kind of news I am happy to eat up and pass on! I've tried to keep you out-of-towners apprised of the progress of JOE SHIELD '85, Trinity's four-year superb quarterback. Well, he was finally cut by the Green Bay Packers and currently is on a 21-day trial with Toronto of the Canadian Football League. Let's hope the wider field and extra receiver proves to be just what the doctor ordered. Class Agent: The Rev. Robert Y. Condit

The second is from a doctor who makes calls on senior citizens. Praise be! DR. LOUIS TONKEN says that being semi路 retired means he works 15 hours a week instead of 15 hours a day.

Ruthie and I spent a most pleasant after路 noon and evening with Cindy and ELLIOTT MAYO who were in Hartford to watch their granddaughter, Celinda Shannon '88, play field hockey for Trinity. She is the third consecutive generation enrolled in Trinity since she is the daughter of Celeste Mayo Shannon and WALTER SHANNON '57. Other mini-reunions included a casual meeting of ANDY ONDERDONK and HOFF BENJAMIN on 5th Avenue in New York City and a not-so-unexpected gathering of Inez and DON SNOWDON and CHUCK KINGSTON who successfully rooted for the Trin football team when they played Tufts. Mildred and FRED BASHOUR will be spending at least six months of each year in Florida. They have just had their fourth grandchild.

There must be a superabundance of good news with '35ers as I have very little and you know the axiom, "No news is ... " For what it's worth, I did get a note from GEORGE DICKERSON via JERRY HANSEN '51. Note: "I bought a house from him in 1943(!) in Leawood, KS." I give up, George, whom did you buy the house from? Your SECRETARY enjoyed an interesting and convivial evening at a reception/picnic sponsored by the New London Trinity Association just prior to the Trinity-Bowdoin game. The event was hosted by TOM and LEW WAD LOW '33. A heterogeneous group of alumni and wives sipped, ate and chatted. Also present were old friends, Ginny and Karl Kurth. Spoke at length withAL DEXTER '36. Very pleased to get a letter from DUANE FLAHERTY. Duane, who wasn't able to make the 50th, identified 19 of the 21 stalwarts from '35 in the Class picture. He incorrectly identified YOURS TRULY as PEARCE ALEXANDER. I am ho路 nored. Unfortunately, although I attended all four days, I missed the 1935 Class picture. Mea culpa. Puleeze! Drop me a line- you must have some news - a grandfather visiting you, a grandson playing for the Dallas Cowboys ... I'll answer it. Also, don't forget the Warner Fund. Class Agent: Dr. Orson H. Hart

Professor GUS ANDRIAN and wife, PEGGY (M.A. '66), took off for another sojourn in Spain, their visit coinciding with Trinity's Open Week in October. They were, hopefully, to be met by their daughter, BARRIE '79, of Bosham, England, and her husband, David Burden, who would be taking time out from his duties on the oil rigs in the North Sea. AL HOPKINS has been corresponding with GUS ANDRIAN, HERB BLAND, WALLY BORIN, DICK MORRIS and FRANK SHERMAN '50 about the "headcount" for the Class of 1940. How many of us are there? This is a difficult question for both the alumni office and ourselves, but AI will get to the bottom of it. The RT. REV. BISHOP BOB KERR, back from the 200th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, held at Anaheim, CA, plans retirement and awaits the appointment of a coadjutor who will one day replace him as bishop of Vermont. Interviewed for The Mountain Echo, with a fine series of portraits of the bishop, Bob says that in retirement he plans to write the history of the diocese, then, "I want to

43 travel, health and money permitting." The Holy Land, of course, is one of his objectives. In Anaheim, he met with LYMAN OGILBY Hon. '54, bishop of Pennsylvania, and ARTHUR WALMSLEY '48, bishop of Connecticut. With our own classmate, AL VAN DUZER, retired bishop of New Jersey, this makes a pretty impressive foursome of Trinity men in the hierarchy of the Episcopal Church. Professor Emeritus DICK MORRIS and his wife, Alice, were guests aboard the classic Crosby catboat of Captain ADRIAN K. LANE '41 on Fisher's Island Sound in July. The two old sailors had much to reminisce about, though Dick was embarrassed to catch in the prop a lobster buoy deftly removed by Marian, the captain's mate. In September, Dick and Alice endured ten days without light, heat and water following hurricane "Gloria." They were among the last in the state to have their electric power restored. "But it was nothing like the devastation of the Great Hurricane of 1938, when we were beginning our sophomore year at Trinity College," he concluded. That was the time that President Ogilby corralled the student body, including members of the Class of 1940, to sandbag the dikes of Hartford to hold back the rising waters of the Connecticut River. Captain Lane reported to Dick Morris, "I took my catboat up into the bullrushes behind Mason's Island (Mystic, CT) before 'Gloria' struck. Many damn fools don't know the power of a hurricane." President James F. English, Jr. wrote, "A real professional," and added that his own craft rode out the storm on its mooring in Noank "with nothing worse than a cockpit full of seawater and mud." Dick's boat, a 20-foot Eastporter, was hauled out in Saybrook the day before the storm and survived unscathed. In the last issue of the Reporter, BILL WOLF was referred to as a "Headliner." But then, Bill has been honored before by the College (Hon. S.T.D. '60) and his rep路 utation as theologian, author - and now novelist, is well known.

George has been interested in fine wine collection since 1937 when he attended a French class at Trinity and was asked by his French teacher to select a French vocabulary improvement project for his class. His eye caught the classroom wall French wine chart distributed by Antoine's restaurant of New Orleans. French wines became his choice and he has been at it ever since, improving both cellar and vocabulary. Class Agent: John T. Carpenter

An official chronicler of the Class of 1952, I routinely receive the mailings which Syd and BOB BUFFUM send out from their Manasota Beach Club in Englewood, FL. Although I've never been a guest there, I am constantly amazed at the creativity and humor that they manage to pack into their brief mailing. On the front of the current mailing is a picture of Bob and Syd. They are sitting on a roof (presumably the beach club), and the message accompanying the picture says, "Join us on the house for the 25th Anniversary of the Manasota Beach Club." Bob is sitting on the peak of the roof with his legs out in front of him in a rather baggy-looking suit. His shirt is open and the necktie is barely hanging on, while his hat looks as though it's going to fall off the back of his head any second. Sort of like he used to look all the time after making the rounds of the various fraternity houses on Vernon Street back in undergraduate days. Syd is sitting on a folding chair (the kind they often have as emergency seating at churches and the YMCA), with her hand on Bob's shoulder. I'm unable to tell whether she is helping support him, or vice versa. Leaning against Syd's chair are a couple of suitcases and a tennis racquet, and she has a second racquet in her hand (it looks as if she needs a little support). The hat she is wearing appears to be a version of the one made famous by Carmen Miranda in the mid-' 40s. When you turn the page the message continues "unless you would rather be inside."

I'm not planning a trip this winter, but someday ... I'm going to take them up on their invitation . .. If the beach club is half as much fun as their modest promotional pieces, it should be a ball. After all that build-up, I would be greatly remiss if I didn't tell you how to make reservations. Call 813-474-2614. The season starts January 8th. As we are rapidly approaching our 35th reunion (1987) more and more the news is of retirements, and not what we're doing, but what our children are up to. TOM WARREN writes from Alexandria, VA that he recently retired from the U.S. Navy, after 31 years of service, and has recently taken up a position as a senior engineer at VSE Corporation in Alexandria. JOHN STEWART also penned a note from Brooklyn saying he will retire shortly from the geology department at Brooklyn College, CUNY. Future plans are uncertain, but it may include living in Barbados, BWI. YOURS TRULY continues to give advice to almond growers in the central valley of California. Farmers here abouts, as is the case everywhere, are having a very tough time, and it is spilling over to sup· pliers, consultants, etc. Fortunately, I put out a newsletter that seems to continue building circulation, and provides a little offset to the general farm malaise. My son, Brian, swam in the first annual Golden Gate Bridge Invitational Swim on the 29th of September. Starting point was Baker Beach on the San Francisco side and finishing point was the Sausalito Yacht Club on the Marin side. Due to heavy currents he did not finish the race (slightly over half of the participants did), but he's looking forward to giving it another try in 1986. My oldest son, David, was recently in Northern California interviewing law firms. He's been in Washington, D.C. the past 5 years working full time and attend· ing Georgetown School of Law nights. He finishes this coming spring, and appears to be headed back to the Golden State. Class Agent: William M. Vibert

News is relatively sparse as of the deadline date for submission of articles, which leaves me no alternative but to write about BILL LUKE. Bill continues to branch out and has purchased yet another Chevrolet Oldsmobile dealership and, as a result of his success, has been cited by Time Magazine, various automobile journals, the Chester County Press and various other publications either owned or operated by Bill or other members of his family. Bill is off to China for several weeks, where he hopes to open another agency selling bicycles in Canton. DICK BEHR has notified us of his recent marriage on June 15, 1985. Best of luck, Dick! LAIRD MORTIMER continues to show his interest in the College and its fraternities by serving on the Fraternity Advisory Board. CLINTON REICHARD had a surprise 50th birthday party thrown for him. When it came time for someone to jump out of the cake, out came Dick Behr, Clinton's old roommate. A great time was had by all. Fortunately, I receive my periodic correspondence from DAVE MAC ISAAC, who lets me know that he's still alive and occasionally sees DAVE McCRACKEN, alumni director at Troy State University

way down in Alabama. Dave bumped into JON REYNOLDS '59, Colonel, USAF, now our nation's air attache to the People's Republic of China. He tells me that Jon never got over the lemon squeezer deal in the Chapel. Dave suggests maybe some joint class reunions, as for example, Class of '55 through the Class of '59, which would take in other friends we had. Please let your CLASS SECRETARY know what you think of that. Dave ended by asking me if PAUL RUSSO really is still alive and whether or not we could get him out of the woods for the 30th Reunion. I'll do my best, Dave! Again my stern warning, send information or else. Class Agent: Frederick M. Tobin, Esq.

NED CHALKER and DAVE RUTHERFORD also missed the reunion to work on a 100-year-old artifact - but in their case it was a sailboat and not a house. We have also heard from S. WOODRUFF BENTLEY. Now retired from a successful Air Force career, Stewart is working for the Secretary of Defense as a civilian in the criminal investigation unit. His wife is a division manager for a Northern Virginia insurance firm, and his children are at the University of Chicago, the Citadel, and the youngest is in high scho.:>l. As a final request, please send any notes of interest, and keep in mind that even if you fail to send items your SECRETARY may spot your name in the public press which he will duly note. In this last regard, I have observed a publication on growth stocks by BUD ANDERSON and work in the sporting world by MATT LEVINE. With the success of our 25th so close, I don't think it is too early to start thinking about the 30th. If you have any thoughts don't hesitate to contact me or the alumni office.

CHARLIE JACOBINI was always a pretty smart guy.

And that's about all regarding individual moves and motion within the Class of '67. I would like to take a liberty not necessarily afforded the job as Class Secretary and bring you up to date on some of the happenings within the National Alumni Association you may be interested in. Many of you will remember BILL "THE JABBERING RABBIT" SCHWEITZER when he played goal for the Trin soccer team. Well, Bill is out of goal but his enthusiasm and verve remain well intact both as a successful attorney in Washington and most recently as the newly appointed president of the Trinity College National Alumni Association. As they used to say in the military, those of us on the executive committee of the Association have been asked to put our boots on. I would like to give you a few details. The executive committee is restructuring by-laws, statement of purpose, and responsibilities to allow more active and meaningful input by the alumni/ae into the life and development of the College. We feel strongly our influence should be more widespread geographically and establish a

network for clearer communications to the entire alumni body as a whole: Career counseling connections for graduating students in major cities and interviews by alumni with prospective incoming freshmen are just a couple of specific examples of programs being implemented. We are in the process of analyzing how to further support alumni fund activities. We are trying to more fully understand our role within the larger Trinity College community. In short, we feel we have the commitment of important, capable people within our executive committee to begin a five-toten-year plan directed at heightening visibility and effectiveness of your alumni association. It's exciting! The rabbit's got us on the move. Any input any of you might provide would be greatly appreciated. WILLIAM BLOCK, JR. was recently made vice president of operations, and a director of the newspaper, Toledo Blade, and its parent company, Blade Communications, Inc.

He has been elected chief of the section of internal medicine at St. Joseph Hospital. He is actively developing a new physiologically-based smoking-cessation program. His family wife, Suzy, and sons, David, 6, Jacob, 4, and Daniel, 2 are all well. He would welcome a call from classmates passing through Atlanta. GEOFFREY WHITE and his wife, Eleanor, have built a house on Martha's Vineyard, and, until their son, Hubbard, starts school in a few years, they plan to continue living there half the year and in Philadelphia the other half.

Hello from Hartford. I've relocated for the next year to this familiar city of fond memories and I hope you'll all stop by as you pass through this crossroads of the northeast. Buzz my doorbell if you're in the vicinity of the Civic Center (I'm across the street). I promise a hot cup of tea and maybe a bad joke or two. It's been fun to see so many of you this fall - by the time you read this, Homecoming will have come and gone, but I hope a lot of you will have been able to come back for it. LORIE (MILLER) GALLAGHER was married April 20th to KEITH GALLAGHER '83. Keith is a navigator in the Air Force and Laurie and Keith have been stationed in Shreveport, LA. Lorie has some great news on the career front. Presently, she's writing the advertising for a 56-store retail chain in her area - she's happy to have broken into her "field." She invites any or all of you for a visit if you're down that way- free room and board!! PEGGY SMITH writes from Georgetown that law school and part-time employment are hectic but enjoyable. She worked for a large firm in Washington during the summer but has now moved on to try out a new one. She hopes to be in Chicago this summer working for a firm speciafizing in international trade. She may squeeze in a trip to Japan for a month this winter - so I better get a postcard!! STEVE KLOTS promised me a recipe, if not the entire cookbook, when I saw him in New York. From the brief conversation we had, it sounds as if things are going fairly well in the publishing world.

One item of business . . . the development office at Trinity has set up a new system. Many of you have generously donated your energy to serve as assistant class agents. So, classmates, you will be hearing from some different voices regarding your gifts to the Alumni Fund. Please continue to give generously. Your efforts count a lot - we can set a lot of records with this great Class. But, we've got some tough competition, especially with the Class of '85. I think we have to show them who's best. You'll be hearing from us. If you have any questions on this or any other way you'd like to get involved with alumni activities, call the College or me, TODD KNUTSON, or DAVE LENAHAN. We need your help! Once again, if you're in the Hartford area, I'd love to hear from you. You can find me at the State Capitol in the Senate Majority office (that's for you, KEVIN O'CONNOR) during the day. I hope all of you are happy and well. Don't forget to send your news - we want to know what you're doing and thinking. Class Agents: Todd R. Knutson David R. Lenahan Jane W. Melvin

A Message from the Alumni Association President To All Trinity Alumni/ae: The Executive Committee of the National Alumni Association has embarked on an ambitious program for the 1985-1986 academic year. We recognize that a major problem in the past has been the lack of communication with, and input from, our members. As a result, w~ have commenced a number of projects which will begin to remedy this problem as well as set the cou~se for the Association for the remainder of this decade. First, a Constitution Committee, consisting of David A. Raymond, Victor F. Keen, Gerald J. Hansen, Jr., director of alumni relations, and myself, has been formed to revise the Association's Constitution. The major purpose of the revisions is to make certain that the leader_ship of the Association is drawn from a more widely divergent group of people and that the flow of ideas is from the "bottom up" rather than our present "top down" structure. In other words, we must reward individuals who have worked effectively at the local level. A broader membership on the Ex, ecutive Committee will also provide a built-in and muchimproved communication system. Furthermore, we intend to seek funding from the College for the Committee's 路 expenses. The amendments to the Constitution will be voted upon at the Annual Meeting of the Association in June. Second, a Long-Range Planning Committee, consisting of Thomas M. Chappell, Wenda Harris Millard and DanielL. Korengold, is preparing a five-year plan for the Association. A pressing problem has been a lack of consistent goals and purposes. The Committee is charged with presenting the members of the Association with a clear path for the future and a method of measuring performance. The long-range plan will be presented to the members at the Annual Meeting. Third, the Executive Committee has conducted a review of the Alumni Fund during the past year. A committee consisting of Robert E. Bric;kley, Elizabeth Kelly Droney, Jeffrey J. Fox and Alfred Steel, Jr. is preparing a report on the Fund for distribution to the members at the Annual Meeting. Fourth, I intend to attend the meetings of a number of the local clubs in order to report on the activities of the Executive Committee, as well as listen to the ideas of local members. I began this process in September with a speech to the Trinity Club of San Francisco. Fifth, the Executive Committee unanimously endorsed the inclusion in the upcoming capital camp'aign of funding for an alumni-faculty house. Such a house will be used as a campus meeting place by both alumni and faculty. Finally, the Committee intends to open a dialogue with the Administration and the Board ofT rustees on a number of issues. Again, communication is a critical factor in raising the effectiveness of the Association. We have a great deal of work to do this year in order to create the basis for an Association which is a forceful advocate of the views of its members. I look forward to seeing and talking with many of you during the coming months. Sincerely, William H. Schweitzer '66 President
