r 25th Anniversary Trinity will divide its celebration of the 125th Anniversary between a weekend noting the founding of the College, May 15~ 16, and Commencement weekend, June 18~21, according to plans announced by President Funston. Major alumni events are scheduled for the Commencement weekend, details of which will be announced in the May issue of the Alumni News. President Charles Seymour of Yale will be the principal speaker at an academic convocation at 2:30p.m. on May 16, marking the 125th Anniversary of the chartering of the College by the State Legislature. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in the Chapel and restricted to invited guests, but if possible the exercises will be held in front of Northam Towers. Other participants will represent sister colleges, the State of Connecticut, the City of Hartford, the Episcopal Church, and alumni, students, and faculty of the College. By a coincidence in the calendar, the College's anniversary this year falls on Whitsunday, offering an unusual opportunity to note Trinity's contribution to Christian education. Three religious services have been scheduled in the Chap~! for the Anniversary Day: at 8:15 a.m., at 11 a.m., and at 5:30 p.m. The College will give a luncheon for delegates from other colleges and guests at 1 p.m. and President Funston will entertain at a reception in his house at 4 p.m. Saturday, May 15, will be Hartford Day with open house for area residents from 1 to 5 p.m. Visitors will be escorted on a tour of the campus by faculty and students. Special hospitality exhibits and events are being prepared for the open house by departments of study and student activity groups. The student body has scheduled its own observation of the 125th Anniver~ sary for Saturday evening at 7 p.m. Details of this program are not yet complete.

Freedom and Restraint By President G. Keith Funston EDITOR' s NoTE: Following is <ln abstract of the Convocation Address delivered by President Funston at th e University of Pennsylvania on February 7.

THE CITATION " Son of Trinity College and Harvard University, your distinguished work in industry, as a member of the research staff of the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration and as special consultant to the chairman of the War Production Board, resulted in your election at age thirty-three to the presidency of Trinity College. " Granted leave of absence to serve as an officer in the United States Navy, all your endeavours reveal a capacity for leadership combined with an ability to inspire confidence in your associates. We welcome you as the head of a sister institution."

I SHOULD like to discuss briefly a basic problem of balancing our American ideals against reality in the hope that the discussion may provide you with a beach-head in your forthcoming effort to take a position with respect to each of the important issues of our time. I will point my remarks to our domestic situation for I believe the United States must remain strong internally if it is to exercise its proper influence in the world outside. I have termed this basic problem, "Freedom and Restraint." It is nothing new; rather it has been a perennial dilemma of thinkers since men first created forms of government. Throughout history when no restraint has been placed on an individual's freedom of choice by governmental authority, unprincipled men have deprived their fellow beings of security. And at the other extreme, the totalitarian and Communist States have deprived the individual of freedom as the price for providing him with hypothetical security. The extreme in either direction is equally obnoxious having always led to fascism and communism at the one pole and anarchy at the other. Since the beginning of man's effort to create democracy, the central problem has been to establish a proper equilibrium between personal freedom of choice on the one hand and restraint by group authority on the other. In my opinion it still is the central problem before our people today. My present anxiety is that the nation may permit the gauge of equilibrium to move too closely towards the pole of security, sought by governmental restraint. Human nature is such that we want what we do not have. Having freedom we take it for granted as we do the air we breathe. Not having complete security, we seek it as Midas sought gold. There can be little doubt that the emergence of the United States as incomparably the most powerful nation in the world stems from the individual, political, economic, religious, and cultural freedom which our Constitution and its Bill of Rights has given to all Americans. But the experiences of the Greeks, Romans, and others show how easy it is for a people to lose their freedom if they relax their vigilance. In this day of high-powered advertising an idea or

a faith, not repeatedly expressed, is apt to be crowded out from the mind by the jingles and soap-operas which engulf us. It is vitally important for our citizenry to place the retention of our freedom along with the attainment of security as a goal to be sought actively. With the progress of the nation our concept of freedom has expanded. Today we are striving to provide equality of opportunity as well as equality before the law. New freedoms, or extensions of old ones are sought - freedom from want, from fear, and from discrimination. For all of our citizens the nation is endeavoring to provide opportunities of useful employment, of adequate education, of decent housing, of good health, and of rewarding leisure. It is not difficult to view these freedoms being sought in more abundance as freedoms for groups of people rather than for individuals. For example, one-third of our people are said to be ill-housed. It may seem easier, therefore, to try to solve this as a group problem by trying to improve the status of the ill-housed as a group, rather than as a large number of individuals. For this reason, the misconception has arisen in many places that only the federal government, representing the group, can secure a larger measure of these freedoms (continued on page 15)

The Classics at Trinity Today: A New Approach By James A. Notopoulos Hobart Professor of Classics

A FRIEND, who recently visited Dr. Einstein at Princeton, reported the following conversation with the great scientist. "The more I read the Greeks," said Einstein, "the more I realize that nothing like them has ever appeared in the world since." "You read the Greeks?" said his visitor. "But of course" he replied, "I have never gone away fro:n them. How can an educated person stay away from the Greeks? I have always been far more interested in them than in science." Secretary Marshall, who is rising more and more to the stature of a Pericles, showed in his speech, delivered at the Princeton Bicentennial Celebration last year, how a knowledge of Thucydides is valuable in understanding the present world crisis. The Secretary said, "One usually emerges from ~n intimate understanding of the past, with Its lessons and its wisdom, with convictions that put fire in the soul. I doubt seriously whether a man can think with full wisdom and deep convictions regarding certain of the basic international issues today who has not at least reviewed in his mind the period of the Peloponnesian War and the fall of Athens." Sir Alfred Zimmern, Professor Emeritus of International Relations at Oxford and now visiting professor at Trinity, gave this past spring a deeply penetrating series of lectures on the "World Crisis." Sir Alfred who started his career as a great Helle~ist at Oxford and then turned his X-ray mind to politics and international affairs, stressed in these lectures the fact that the "rule of law " which is the social essence of the Gre~k genius, should be extended on a world wide basis. In the Moore Greek Lecture of 1947 "Athens and America,"* Sir Alfred asked why isn't it possible through the rule of law which in the Greek republics shaped privat~ morality for public purpose, "for the world or, at least, for its leading peoples, to take a further step forward so that the Charter of the United Nations, which is at present merely a treaty between a number of independent states . . . may become within the limits of its competence as true a constitution for the whole of mankind as the laws of Athens were for the Athenians and the Constitution of the United States for the Americans?"

These three instances reveal the fountain of wisdom in the Classics which refreshes the minds of those who face the complex problems of today. They show that the classics are not a. n:ere veneer of exclusive urbanity for the pnvileged few. Rather they bring out on_ce more the truth of what an Egyptian pnest remarked to Plato: "You Greeks have the gift of eternal youth." The reason for this ~s that there is a wisdom unique in th~ classtcs. The Greek and Latin poets and thm~ers were pr!marily interested in distilling the mner meanmg from the events of their age; they were interested in what a man's action does to his soul. Like the chorus of a Greek drama the classical mind explained and clarified experience in uni versa! terms so that we see in the characters of its literature representative actions and lasting tendencies of men which enable us to recognize manifestations which recur in our own lives. That is why the characters of classical literature express with freshness all the characteristic attitudes of Western man: that is why in ancient history we find an X-ray of human nature under the impact of good and evil, peace and war. It is a tribute to Trinity College that it has always included a knowledge of our classical heritage in its education. What other colleges and universities long ago abandoned to their sorrow and now are coming back to in the form of "core curricula" with emphasis on "general education" and "great books" Trinity has steadfastly adhered to. Recently a historian has aptly justified our stand on the classics. He writes, "The need for breadth coherence and intellectual quality in a colleg~ education is of course no new problem. It was faced and met by the old classical curriculum which, whatever can be said against it, had at least certain very great advantages. Classics by the old conception w~s a r:nuch ~roader subject than any compnsed m a smgle department in a modern university.

summer vacation intervening and thus setting back the student through a lengthy review in the beginning of the second year? The lack of progress in acquiring skills early resulted in an inefficiency which could never be tolerated in the business world. As a result, an experiment was tried over three years in which elementary Greek was taught in one term, six days per week. A text book* was chosen which offered passages in Greek of cultural significance. Drilling every day in the week on forms which were then used syntactically in significant passages of Greek resulted in the early development of reading skill. This was in marked contrast to previous classical pedagogy where first forms were acquired through easy but puerile sentences, followed in the third year by significant literature which for the most part was used as a grammatical museum rather than as significant documents of the human mind. In the new approach there is no divorce in logos as form and content. Literature is treated as a humanistic expression of time~ less ideas and emotions.

relationship of the individual and society in all its phases. Where in all modern education could the following subjects and problems be integrally found as branches of a single tree with clear and simple outline? Within the confines of this book one comes in con~ tact with the essentials of logic, the social contract theory, the principle of specialization in economics, censorship, religion, commu~ nism, psychology, metaphysics, the rise and fall of man as reflected in types of govern~ ment, the nature of pleasure and its relation to ethics, literary criticism and immortality. All of these subjects are not disjunct chapters but fused with one another in an organic whole which is the nature of justice. Thus the classics, in Matthew Arnold 's phrase, "see life steadily and see it as a whole." Granted that all this is true, the alumni may rightly ask, "What has Trinity done and is doing to extend citizenship in this domain of wisdom and delight?" The first problem of the Classics Depart~ ment has been to increase the number of those who study the classics in the original. The decline of Greek and Latin in the second~ ary schools has had ultimate effect on the college. Even those who began Greek in college never went deep enough into the literature to achieve the objective stated above. The solution for both these problems was found as a result of my experience in teaching Mathematics and Navigation in the Navy V~12 program. The study of these subjects intensively every day resulted in the rapid development of skills. Why couldn't this be done in the study of elementary classical languages which were traditionally taught three days a week with the long

The elementary text book, which prepares the student gradually for the reading of Plato, is usually finished in the first week of December. The students then study Plato, commencing at first with the easy earlier dialogues and by June they are read~ ing portions of the Republic illustrative of Socrates' and Plato's basic philosophy. Thus in one year (six days per week the first term; three days per week the second term) the students who began the language in Septem~ ber read a considerable portion of Plato. In the second year of Greek the students devote one term to Homer and one term to the Greek Drama. The students who participated in this experiment were enthusiastic and this college year have attracted ten upper classmen to begin the study of Greek. The increase in the Greek enrollment is a tribute to the success of this new app roach which was also extended this past year to the teaching of elementary Latin. The next problem is to do something for those who continue the study of Greek beyond the sophomore year. Haphazard reading will not do. The department is planning for these men a course of study which will demand more than mere transla~ tion. An Honors Seminar on " Athens of the Fifth Century B.C." is being planned for them. The main aspects of the century in their mutual relations will be studied from primary sources read in the original and partly in the Loeb translation of the classical authors. The aim of the course is to foster

the development of a mind which will approach the problems of modern civilization with an understanding of their origins and a sense of human possibilities that Greek civilization bears witness to. This seminar, which will extend for two years, is modelled after the famous Oxford "Literae Humaniores Honours School" which has been responsible for training some of the great men of England. It trains the mind to think freshly and creatively on problems and issues which face the Greek world. It emphasizes, on the part of the student, individual papers which organize the relevant evidence from primary sources on a problem, clarify the issues involved, and requires native and original criticism of them. Though it is hoped that all this will result in a renewed interest in the classics studied in the original, Trinity does not consider that its classical mission is accomplished. There are many students who either through lack of time or linguistic ineptitude cannot study the classics in the original. It is realized. however, that the classics must reach them and affect them with their values. Our late President Dr. Ogilby and Dr. E. D. Myers developed a course in Linguistics which emphasized the Greek and Latin elements in the English language. This course, which is now taught by Dean Hughes, attempts to make the students conscious of the classical heritage in our language. It has been made compulsory for those B. A. students who do not study the classics in the original.

tieing attorney in Hartford, brings to this course his invaluable experiences and scholarship. These courses in addition to those with classical substance in the departments of English, Fine Arts, History and Philosophy are going a long way in making the classical tradition a living reality in a Trinity education. Trinity hopes that through the study of the classics in the original and in translation there results for the student a good crop of timeless ideas and revelations. Freed from the fallacy that only the new is good, it is hoped that the student will learn the meaning of tradition and its formative principles which give one a precious criterion for choosing between substance and shadow. The choice ideas of Greece and Rome, by being the object of love and thought, will give his spirit a world of permanence, something to cling to when the student departs into the confusion of the world . They will give him a faith by revealing a clue as to how spiritual things can move and shape material things. Such has been the classical ideal of Trinity and the testament of its success is imprinted in the soul, character and achievement of many of her graduates who represent the flowering of the Classical and Christian ideals of Trinity. T

New Geology Major

In addition to the Linguistics course, the college requires of these students two additional courses pertaining to classical civilization. Trinity believes that the wisdom in the classics should be made available to everyone in translation. Plato himself would have sanctioned this for he speaks in the Phaedo of the "second voyage" by which is meant the method of "tacking" in sailing when the wind is not favorable for a direct voyage. The Classics Department has therefore developed a course called "Classical Humanities" which consists of a study of the Greek and Roman civilization with emphasis on readings in, and discussions of, a limited number of masterpieces in classical literature, philosophy, and science which have contributed most significantly to our civilization.

BEGINNING next September, Geology may be taken as a major in the undergraduate curriculum. Seven new courses have been added by Professor Troxell. They include advance studies of geomorphology, and economic, glacial, structural and field geology. Offering of these new courses has been made possible by the addition to the faculty of Mr. Solon W. Stone, a former teaching fellow at Harvard. The Geology Department will give a new course, Introduction to Geology, open to all students. Physical geology will be studied in the first semester and historical geology in the second. There will also be laboratory work and field trips.

This year the department is also giving, for the first time, a course in Roman Law which does not require the knowledge of Latin. It consists of a study of the historical development and principles of Roman Law and its influence on jurisprudence and AngloAmerican legal systems. The instructor in the course is unique. He is Mr. James Egan, Trinity '37, who as a Rhodes Scholar studied Roman Law at Oxford. Mr. Egan, a prac-

Paul H. Alling Appointed Ambassador to Pakistan IN DECEMBER President Truman appointed Paul H. Alling, '20, the first United States Ambassador to the new nation of Pakistan . A career diplomat, Mr. Alling is well fitted for his post in this strife~ridden country. Mr. Alling was born in H amden, Con~ necticut, in 1896 and prepared for college at the New Haven High School, New Haven, Connecticut, and entered Trinity in 1915. Two years later his education was inter~ rupted when he joined Troop B of the Con~ necticut Cavalry and later served in France with the 10 1st and 102nd Machine Gun Battalions and with the Jrd U. S. Cavalry and the General Staff Headquarters . Returning to Trinity in 1919, he com~ pleted his course and graduated the following year. He was a member of the College Senate, Secretary~Treasurer of the Athletic Association, Interfraternity Council and Asso~ date Editor of the Tripod. He is a member of the Sigma Chapter of Delta Phi. After graduation he worked at the National City Bank of New York; the Benjamin Franklin Institute of New York; and the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. While in this last position he studied at the Univer~ sity of Pennsylvania for his Masters Degree which he received in 1924. He then joined the State Department and served in the Foreign Service at Beirut, Aleppo, Damascus and Tangiers. In Novem~ ber, 1930, he resigned and was appointed Assistant Chief of the Division of Near Eastern Affairs. Later he was promoted to Chief of this Division, and also acted as adviser to the American Delegation at the International Conference for the Revision of the Capitulatory Regime. In 1945 he was political and liasion officer of the United States delegation to the United Nations Conference in San Francisco. Before sailing on the Queen Mary in January, Ambassador Alling wrote the fol~ lowing article about the new country Pakistan. "There are various versions of the origin of the word Pakistan, but one of the most interesting and popular stories is that the name originated about the time of the fall of the Mogul Empire. The peoples of the northwestern part of the Indian subcon~ tinent, together with some of the neighboring peoples of similar race and culture, thought of banding together to preserve their tradi~ tions and protect 路their common interests. These peoples were located chiefly in the Punjab, and parts of Afghanistan and Kash~ mir. Therefore, they took the first letters of

7

these three territories making PAK and added the syllables 'istan' meaning 'land of.' Whatever the origin of the name the Muslim peoples of the Indian subcontinent have for many years thought of and referred to their country as Pakistan. " Soon after agreement was reached by the British authorities with leaders in India for the partition of the territory into two states, the United States Government and the Government of Pakistan agreed to ex~ change ambassadors. When the Dominion of Pakistan became a new member of the family of nations on August 15, 1947, the American consular office at Karachi was raised to the rank of an Embassy. The first Pakistan Ambassador to the United States, M.A.H. Ispahani, presented his letter of credence to the President on October 8, 1947. Prior to that time I was appointed by the President as the first American Ambassador to Pakistan. I was unable to proceed to my post at once because I had been assigned as an advisor to the American delegation at the General Assembly of the United Nations. Duing that assembly it was a special pleasure for me to be present at the meeting when Pakistan was admitted as a member of the United Nations. " It may come as a surprise to some that, from the viewpoint of population, Pakistan ranks fifth among the members of the United Nations, preceded only by China, India, the U.S.S.R. , and our own country. American economic relations with what is now Pakistan commenced many years ago and cultural relations between the two countries have been on the increase for a long time. It is the hope of interested officials and peoples of both nations that those relations will flourish and become even closer." It is our sincere hope that Ambassador Alling has every success in his new post.


Cage Quintet Leads Winter Sports Teams BASKETBALL WITH one of the best defensive averages of the country's small college teams, Trin swept through six opponents - Williams, Massachusetts University, Bates, Bowdoin, Amherst and Worcester Polytechnic Insti~ tute - in the first half of the season after dropping the opener to Massachusetts Insti~ tute of Technology 42 to 40. Coach Ray Oosting, now in his twenty~second year of coaching at the Hilltop, has found an all~ around combination that is one of the best ever to represent Trinity on the court. Captain and center Red Faber, who Ray believes is the finest player he has seen wearing Blue and Gold, has been a tower of strength on offense and defense. A grand team player, Red could win a starting berth on any college team. Lanky Ron Watson and Bill Pitkin are fine forwards and when they get a bit more experience, will bear a lot of watching. Jack Mahon and Joe Pon~ salle are most dependable in the guard positions and have played steady ball, especially when the pressure is on. After midyears the team fell before the powerful Holy Cross Crusaders, National Champions last year, by a score of 74 to 44. The invaders played a beautiful game and put on such a dazzling demonstration of passing that many of the capacity crowd of 1400 in the State Armory found it difficult to follow the ball. The Trinity team gave a good account of itself and Red Faber netted 19 points to lead the scoring for the evening. On February lOth, Trin lost a see~saw battle to its arch rival, Wesleyan, 64 to 58. The Cardinals roared to a flying start by making four out of its first five shots from the field. Trin caught up and at half time was trailing by one point. Holy Cross Game

Red Faber and Ray Oosting

In the second half Wesleyan drew slowly ahead and at one juncture held a twelve point lead. With three minutes to go Trinity narrowed the gap, but could not catch their rivals. Bill Pitkin had his point making night of the season with 15 while Faber and Mahon turned in fine performances. As we go to press the team has a hard schedule, meeting in order Middlebury*, Coast Guard, Amherst*, Tufts*, Wesleyan, Hamilton*, Union*, and Yale. The boys have improved a lot, and are especially eager for another crack at Wesleyan. The freshmen have racked up victories over Abbey School, Yale Freshmen, Amherst Javees, Worcester Tech, and Westminster School, while dropping decisions to Massa~ chusetts University, Hillyer College, Holy Cross and Wesleyan Junior Varsity. The Yale game was a thriller with Eddie Ludorf sinking the winning point of a 43~42 victory with Jess than a minute to go. " Moon" Curtin has been briiiiant on the offensive in every game, while Van Lanen, Sharpe and Ludorf have shown steady improvement. (* Games away ) SWIMMING The Varsity defeated Boston University and lost to Massachusetts Institute of Tech~ nology while the Freshmen have downed Pawling and Deerfield Schools and dropped a close decision to the Yale Freshmen. Bob Tyler, '48, brother of Dave and Jack, is continuing the Tyler tradition of being Captain. Bob consistently turns in good times in the 220 and 440. Under Coach Clarke's direction the annual Preparatory School meet has been scheduled for February 28 at Trowbridge Memorial 8


Pool with nine schools competing. When Joe first organized this meet in 1932 there were four schools contending. The winning school is presented with a plaque showing the scores of each team and medals are also awarded for the first four places in each event. After the competition all the teams have dinner at Hamlin Dining Hall as guests of the college.

Faculty Changes Language Requirements THE FACULTY have voted that Spanish or Italian may be taken by students to satisfy their degree requirements as well as French or German. This change in the curriculum will take effect next September. Trinity will continue to require that all liberal arts students have a firm grounding in the Classics, either by completion of third year college Latin or Greek. or by two years of college study of courses pertaining to classical civilization for students who offer a modern language for degree requirements. Science students will now be able to qualify for their degrees by study of any one of four modern languages, although any de, partment of the college may require the study of a specific language for students majoring in that department. The admission office reports that one, quarter of the freshmen in recent entering classes have studied Spanish in secondary school, and quite naturally many of these men wish to continue their study of the language.

SQUASH Dan Jessee's racquet swingers have been hard at work under the eagle eye of the "old master." Several local teams have been scheduled, and intercollegiate matches with Army, Wesleyan and Williams. The loss of Dick Weisenfluh, Bob Toland, Ed Kelly and Frank Borden by graduation has left a big hole to fill. There are several freshmen who show good promise for next year. FENCING Under the leadership of Jack Reynolds, '48, fencing has been inaugurated. There are ten boys on the squad who practice on the lower floor of Alumni Hall. They hope to get in some informal competition with local fencing clubs. T

The Rev. Lauriston L. Scaife Elected Bishop THE Rev. Lauriston L. Scaife, '31, Rector of Calvary Church, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was elected Bishop of Western New York at a special convention held at St. Mark's Church, Buffalo, New York, on January 20th. Dr. Scaife's name was the only one submitted to the convention. He will succeed the Right Reverend Cameron J. Davis, '94, who officially retired last September but has been carrying on his duties until the bishop~ elect is consecrated this spring. Dr. Scaife prepared for college at Milton Academy and entered Trinity in the fall of 1927 with the Class of 1931. In College he was a member of the Glee Club, The Ivy, the French Club, the German Club, and the Literary Club, being President of the latter. For four years he was active in the Jesters. He was a member of the Sophomore Dining Club, the Sophomore Hop Committee, and Chairman of the Junior Prom. For three years he was Assistant Organist. In his Junior year his class elected him Vice President. In his Senior year he was Secretary of the Senate, Class Day Chairman and President of his class. He is a member of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity. Many undergraduates of that time will recall his Greek classes for Dr. Scaife taught the elementary sections two years. His good~ natured antics at his desk when a student missed a point kept the class full of merriment. Dr. Scaife did graduate work in Classics at the University of Gottingen and at Harvard before going to Howe School, Howe, Indiana, to teach Latin, Greek, and German. He received his Bachelor of Sacred Theology degree from the General Theological Sem~ inary in 1937, where he also held the position of instructor of New Testament Greek. Bishop Babcock of Massachusetts ordained him to the Diaconate in 1937 and Bishop Dallas of New Hampshire ordained him to the Priesthood in 1938. That year Dr. Scaife taught Classics at St. Paul's School, Concord, New Hampshire. In 1938 Dr. Scaife went to St. Thomas' Church, New York City, as assistant to the Rev. Roelif H. Brooks, '00. For many years he has been interested in closer ties between the Orthodox and Anglican Communions, and while in the diocese of New York he was the diocesan representative for Orthodox relations, author of the book, "The Russian Priests of Tomorrow," and a trustee of St. Vladimir's Russian Orthodox Seminary. The Russian Theological Academy in Paris con~ ferred a doctorate of Theology on him in 1940.

Bishop James DeWolf Perry, Hon. 1932, instituted Dr. Scaife as the twenty~second Rector of Trinity Church, Newport, Rhode Island, in May 1942. Two and a half years later, the Rev. Dr. Scaife was sworn into the Navy as a Lieutenant in the Chaplain Corps. In 1946 Dr. Scaife was called to be Rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh and was instituted on April 30th. This parish is one of the largest in the United States. Dr. Scaife married Miss Eleanor Morris Carnochan of New York City in 1939, and they have two children.

Development Fund Drive Enters Final Stage Bob Morris Appeals to Trinity Men Missing from Alumni Roll of Honor THIRTEEN months ago Trinity Alumni trotted onto the field for one of the most exciting and significant contests ever staged 'neath the time-honored elms. In effect, it was a contest to determine whether Trinity would continue to hold her enviable place of leadership in the field of liberal arts education or give way to more aggressive and better equipped competitors. Consequently, the goal - a field house, dormitory, and enlargement of the library - was readily recognized as a minimum need. Great enthusiasm attended the kickoff. The contestants were fresh and confident. Enthusiasm 路ran high among the supporters. As might be expected, we scored early and often. Gain on steady gain was the order of the day. In almost no time at all we had driven half way down the field. But as the contest proceeded, progress slowed . Many supporters had given their all early; the attention of some of the contestants had become distracted. So, today, with the game two-thirds spent, it is important that we seriously and objectively evaluate our present resources, the better to formulate winning strategy for the decisive five months that remain. 路 A glance at our score card indicates that a total of $1,135,000 have been subscribed toward the ultimate goal of $1,500,000. Alumni and Trustees have together contributed nearly $440,000 with their goal of $500,000 quite near at hand. This commendable showing has been attained only by dint of much sacrificial giving in money and services on the part of a woefully small

percentage of the alumni body. This struggle has had its heroes, too, for scores have written records of conspicuous loyalty. There is, for example, the Army private stationed in Panama, who hopes some day to resume his study at Trinity, who pledged $150 at the rate of $5 a month from all too meager resources because " this is my job." Just what is the strategy we count on to carry us across that goal line which looms so near? Somehow we must touch the hearts of you 1800 who have not yet given, for without your eleventh hour support we shall surely fail. To that end Chairmen of important areas have organized a vigorous clean-up campaign. Class Agents are stirring up interest, as are representatives of the various Fraternities. And nearly 125 "special agents" of the Alumni Chairman are carrying out designated assignments from coast to coast and border to border. Unless Trinity Alumni demonstrate their unquestioned loyalty and faith in their own alma mater, how can we hope to attract the giving of foundations and large individual donors? So please do not wait to be canvassed. Your voluntary "vote of confidence" will be all the more appreciated. Give liberally, if you can, but give something in any event and at once. If you 've already contributed, perhaps you can spare more. Many have found it possible to increase their original pledges. We can't win this contest by a fluke. There is no easy way to victory. Only by a rallying of all our forces can we drive across that last important line. Thoroughbreds never falter as they come down the home stretch!

Career Counseling

Demopoulos Benefit

The Placement Bureau under the direction of John F. Butler, '33, has invited seventeen men in business and government to speak to seniors and other interested undergraduates in special career counseling programs. The following alumni are scheduled to take part: George C. Capen, '10 - "Insurance Home Office Functions;" Hugh S. Campbell, '32 - "Law as a Career;" William W. Sisbower, '33 - "Functions of a Trust Department;" Thomas J. Radzevich, '36 "Foreign Trade;" and Donald J. Viering, '42 - "Insurance Sales and Promotion." Professor George B. Cooper will speak on the Consular Service.

UNDER THE leadership of Chuck Kingston, '34, and Fred U. Conard, Jr., of Wesleyan, a benefit for Stavros Demopoulos, injured Wesleyan student, was held at Bushnell Memorial on January 17th. Demopoulos, paralyzed from a football injury in the Trinity-Wesleyan freshman football game last fall, has been confined at the Hartford Hospital ever since. The show was attended by 2600 persons and added $6500 to the Demopoulos Fund which now totals $9300. All the entertainers, musicians, stagehands, and electricians as well as the management of the Bushnell donated their services. The Trinity and Wesleyan Glee Clubs rendered several selections. 16

Construction Started on New Dormitory THE Associated Construction Company of Hartford broke ground for Trinity's new 103~man dormitory on January 6 less than ten minutes after the contract for the new $352,000 structure was signed in Treasurer Joseph Getzendanner's office. Robert B. O'Connor, '16, designed the new unit and Richard J. Hill, '39, is chief engineer of the project for the Associated Construction Company. Subscriptions are still incomplete for the dormitory, which is listed as a critical need by next September in the 125th Anniversary Development Pro~ gram. The building, which will be entirely fire~ proof, is located off Summit Street near Boardman Hall, and will be 151 feet long and 35 feet deep with a 80 foot wing running to the east at the southern end. It will be four stories high, with a fifth story tower. Constructed of concrete block, the dormitory will be finished in red brick with limestone trim. The roof will be flat with Gothic crennellations. There will be a student lounge, twenty~six single rooms, twenty~six suites for two men and three single professor's suites. The new building will relieve acute dor~ mitory congestion caused by the return of veterans, and will provide for long range resident needs as the College returns to an enrollment of 650. The average pre~war enrollment was 525. As we go to press the work on the founda~ tions is progressing well although the men have been severely handicapped by the bitter weather and deep snow. The contractors say, however, the building will be ready for occu~ pancy by next September. THE jESTERS will present "Men in White" by Sidney Kingsley on May 6, 7, and 8 at the Avery Memorial. The Jesters are com~ piling a History. They will be grateful to any alumni who will send in reminiscences.

The New York Alumni held their annual dinner at the Harvard Club on December 4th. President Funston, Bert Holland, '34, Bill Peelle, '44, and Dan Jessee were the speakers.

Muller, '31, and john S. McCook, '35; Secretary~ Treasurer, Frederick C. Hinkel, Jr., '06. Members of the Executive Committee are Clarence I. Penn, '12, john E . Bierck, '17, McAllister R .

In 1922 Mr. Clark headed the taxation committee cf the National Retail Dry Goods Association in the marshalling of facts on wholesale and retail distribution for a Joint Commission of Agricultural Inquiry into agriculture, banking, transportation and distribution. He was also chairman of a committee which prepared the accounting manual still in use in Associated Merchandising Corporation stores. Mr. Clark was the first recipient of the National Retail Dry Goods Association's gold medal for distinguished service. By many department store controllers, Carlos B. Clark was looked upon as the dean of their profession. He devised a number of innovations in department store accounting, was credited with many contributions in the development of the retail method of inventory and was said to have been one of those who developed the first standard classification of accounts. His "contribution plan," a method of store accounting which Mr. Clark announced in 1933, was widely considered to be superior to the net profit plan then in general use. His plan charged buyers and merchandise managers only with direct operating expenses to management. Mr. Clark held that this resulted in a truer picture of the net profit of a department store and did not burden the buyer with charges for which he was not responsible. For many years Mr. Clark lectured and acted as consulting advisor of the Harvard Business School. He was generally regarded as one of the leading retailers of the country and had the happy facility of imparting his knowledge in a clear concise fashion. In May, 1943, Trinity awarded him an honorary Master of Arts degree. Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Agnes Clark, and a sister, Mrs. Andrew Forsliff.
