National Association Revives Alumni Fund To Help College Meet Operating Expenses TRINITY CoLLEGE needs additional operating income which the Alumni Association hopes to raise by a reactivated Alumni Fund campaign. This was announced by Colonel John R. Reitemeyer, '21, Alumni Association president, in a special letter last month to all alumni . The fund will be raised by annual contributions and the goal each year will be an amount equal to the financial return from an endowment of one million dollars. SydneyD.Pinney, '18, has been named national chairman of the campaign by the Association's executive committee. It will be the first time that the Alumni Association itself has conducted an annual alumni fund . "The Anniversary Development Campaign brought home the importance of alumni financial support to the future of the College," Colonel Reitemeyer said. "In the past, the Alumni Association was content to leave the moneyraising efforts of Trinity 's sons to the alumni secretary. But with the College facing unprecedented financial problems, an annual fundraising campaign conducted among alumni by a lumni seems to be the best answer to a long-range fiscal problem." Money raised in the campaign will be paid directly to the Trustees of the College to be used for operating expenses and campus improvements in the regular budget of College necessities. Current budgetary forecasts by the College treasurer indicate that without substantial alumni gifts the College will have a deficit this year. The annual report of President Funston published last month indicated that a total of 80,000 of plant maintenance and rehabilitation, still carried over from wartime, had to be curtailed last year because of insufficient funds. While operating expenses of the College have risen more than $723,000 or 260 percent since 1940-41, income from endowment has increased only three percent of that amount or $22,000. Although some of this increase in expense has been caused by a temporary increase in the number of students, a large share has been ca'..lsed by inflationary increased in fixed costs. Maintenance expenses, for example, which were $108,031 in 1940-41 were $270,027 in 1947-48 and are not expected to drop as the numbers of students decrease. Colonel Reitemeyer told class agents who met at the College on October 15 , that "we all know that tuition alone cannot pay for the kind of liberal education that we received at Trinity. When the College expanded to accept returning veterans, endowment income was spread too thin over a student body expanded more than

70 percent. At the same time, costs have skyrocketed. Wisdom still remains more precious than rubies, but the production of wisdom requires more and more rubies. "Although faculty pay has been increased, most of Trinity's teachers can no longer afford to entertain their colleagues or students. Trinity ca nnot maintain its reputation as a 'personal college' for long under such circumsta nces. Boardman Hall is badly in need of repainting. While science is making rapid progress, our science departments, all on tight inflation budgets , are getting along with equipment used for years. The battle against the Dutch Elm disease is only one new expense facing the College. "It is to help provide the many little things which are real necessities in a liberal education of the best type that the annual alumni fund is being reconstituted." Objective of the Alumni Fund for 1948-49 is 30,000, set at a low total because of the many alumni still paying on pledges to the Anniversary Development Program. Alumni raised $37,000 in the last Alumni Fund of 1945-46. Mr. Pinney has appointed a committee which includes John S. McCook , '35, general vicechairman; Special Gifts - Fred C. Hinkel, Jr., '06, chairman and Paul W . Adams, '35, vicechairman; Class Agents - George C. Capen, '10, chairman and Harmon T. Barber, '19, William W. isbower, '33, vice-chairman; Promotion - George Malcolm-Smith, '25, chairman and L. Barton Wilson, '37, vice-chairman. John F. Butler, '33, is executive secretary. Solicitation for the Alumni Fund will be conducted by an organization of class agents from January until June. Contributions from alumni who can gain tax advantages from gifts to the College are requested in December.

Study of Government In a Liberal Education by LAURENCE L. BARBER, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Government

ONE OF THE harder problems faced by a liberal arts college is a proper balancing of cultural course material and its vocational uses. This dilemma is especially acute in the social sciences, where a student must learn the fundamental principles of modern social life, while at the same time he lives in a world which is applying those principles in dramatic fashion. Our new major in government, like those in other social sciences, attempts a coordination in this respect. From the very beginning of a student's program, during the first weeks of the elementary course in Modern Government, we present analysis of the ways in which great thinkers of the past and present have sought to apply moral principles to social needs. This theme continues through advanced courses such as Modern Political Thought. At the same time, we constantly try, in subject and materials, to show the present-day technique of governing. While this is found in all courses, it is most obvious in the study of Public Administration. Trinity has always insisted that a liberal arts training must stand by itself, and not rely on vocational possibilities. College work in government does not envision the direct training of politicians or administrators, any more than that in English tries to produce novelists or economics stock-brokers. Although a few of our students may be encouraged toward civic professions by their college courses, clearly every Trinity graduate will remain at least a citizen and taxpayer throughout his life. Alumni records indicate that many will become prominent in both respects. If the study of government is to avoid duplicating secondary school civics, it must aim at training these citizens and taxpayers for an intelligent and high-minded relationship to their governments. With college graduates there is the further responsibility of civic leadership. Every Trinity alumnus, whether in the church, business, or

professions, finds himself at one time or another in a position of responsible participation in government. He may be a member of the local welfare board, or a lobbyist before the state legislature, or perhaps a leading supporter of some candidate for public office. Men from a college such as ours should certainly approach such non-vocational civic duty with high ideals. Preferably they should also be primed with sufficient practical knowledge to avoid both the naivete of innocence and the cynicism of disillusionment. To further such broad training, Trinity established last spring a major in government, with a small department to administer its program of courses. At the present time a student electing this major will take at least six semester courses in government, plus two others in government or in specified allied subjects. The last of these requirements is a feature new to Trinity, reflecting the need of avoiding course duplication in a small college and, more important, pointing up the basic interrelationship of the several social sciences. Especially at the present time, amid the ti!rtnoil concerning the values or dangers of experiments in so-called "general education," we should not be blind to that ever-accepted closeness of departments and subjects within the major divisions of collegiate learning. Government cannot be taught in 路 a curricular vacuum at Trinity or elsewhere. A~ an example, its development until this year as路 a part of the scope of our History Department has created relationships which those teaching each subject are most desirous of retaining. If the student is to avoid a parochial attitude toward the subject of his special interest, similar coordination is obviously necessary with many other departments. For these reasons , the government major allows and even encourages a student !tO broaden his program of courses by study of such subjects

4


as Roman Law (Classics) , Public Finance and Regulation of Industry (Economics) , Contemporary Affairs and International Relations (History), and Social Psychology and Philosophy of the State (Philosophy) . All of these subjects are essential to the work of the several departments which present them. All are equally desirable to the student of political science. The specific offerings in government are necessarily limited in this first year. As has been indicated, the introductory semester begins with political theory, developing the fundamental problem of the relationship of individualistic man to his collective state. It continues with a rapid survey of the ways in which the United States and other nations are attempting to solve this relationship. The student may then go on to semester courses in Modern Political Thought, Comparative Government, and American National Government. The last of these furnishes a base for advanced work in State and Local Government, Constitutional Law, and Public Administration. The program culminates in a senior workshop or seminar, where formal class meetings are replaced by field trips, periodic evening informal sessions, personal conferences, and an emphasis on individual projects of reading or research. In this advanced work a program of undergraduate internship is being developed through collaboration with several local governments and research bureaus in the Hartford area. While still in the pilot stage, this has proved extremely popular with mature students, and has been far more effective than many times the amount of classroom or textbook study time. The materials of a subject frequently determine its techniques of teaching and study. We are fortunate in this respect. The Trinity library is a federal depository, containing nearly all items published by the Government Printing Office. Students thus have not only textbooks and learned analyses available, but may use actual documentary material such as copies of legislative bills, departmental reports, and court opinions. In addition, the libraries of the state and nearby municipalities supply many other needed items. The benefits of our civic location are most obvious in regard to non-documentary materials. A college in a wilderness may have fine library facilities. But Trinity is unusual in being located in a state capital, a county seat, a metropolitan center with suburbs of varied governmental structures, and a city whose form of government is among the most progressive in the nation. Students can see much of modern government actually working before their eyes. Where some colleges must rely on textbook descriptions of a legislative session, our students can actually watch such a session in progress and meet with legislative leaders. Where some colleges must

necessarily content themselves with written surveys of municipal finance, our students can interview municipal financial officers or hear them in the classroom. As a further example of this type of activity, attempts have been made to ensure that every student in Trinity government courses will have participated in the 1948 election campaign by direct work in support of some candidate or party. In actual practice, all this means a four-part program. There always must be available and assigned to a student much basic written work , frequentl y dealing with the history and general principles of governmental institutions. This must be supplemented by faculty or professional lectures, giving personal analysis and emphasis to many features of the subject matter. There must be abundant opportunity, especially in a small college, for free informal discussion among the students, to reveal their questions and share their discoveries . Finally, there should be a constant catalytic action of student contact with working government, through assigned investigations for course papers, through field trips, through discussion with guest lecturers, and through personal contact outside college work, made more fruitful by the knowledge and enthusiasm developed in studies. No Trinity man completing such a major will graduate directly into the presidency of the United States , or even top the list on any specialized civil service examination. But it is our fundamental hope and aim that every student who participates in this work will become a graduate who is better prepared to live as a citizen and act as a leader in a democratic society.

T welve Alumni Sons in Fresh man Class Twelve sons of alumni are enrolled in the class of 1952 and two are third generation in the Trinity family. John W. Beers of West Hartford is the son of Henry Beers, '18, and grandson of the late George E. Beers, '86, and Frederick R. H o isington, Ill's father is a member of the class of 1920, and his grandfather the class of 1891. Incidentally the senior Mr. Hoisington played every minute of every football game for four years, and in those days Trin met the best in the East. Other alumni sons are Edwin W. Bleecker William H., ' 12; Edward A. Carroll - Edward C., '18; Terence M . Crowley - James H., '45 (began his academic course at the University of Maine in 1919) ; Wyatt N.

Dean Reports Veteran Influence Disappearing Excerpts from Annual Report by Dean Arthur H. Hughes AT LEAST A semblance of normalcy in the antebellum sense began to be noticeable now and then during the academic year that ended in June, 1948. Fleeting visions of "Joe College," unmarried and hedonistic and not quite as grown up as his veteran brother, could be detected here and there if one cared to look closely; indeed, there was no need to assume that wishful thinking played any part in conjuring up glimpses of campus life as it existed ten years ago. Unfortunately, the two outstanding disadvantages of the postwar period路 seem to be endowed with an unusual longevity. Over-crowding and accelerated courses of study persist and give promise of remaining to plague us for some years to come. Our student body last year was too large and the same thing will be true next year. There is no cause for alarm, however, since we have not been forced to give instruction to sections of inflated size (the average Trinity class last year contained 20 students) and the new Elton Hall will bring about a material improvement in the situation in donnitory rooms. Accelerated programs are on the wane as veterans become fewer in number and as a consequence of our abbreviated summer school that starred in June, 1948. It will cut in half the amount of work that can be completed by our students during the summer months, and, in addition, we are attempting to discourage our younger students from entering into any kind of formal summer study for college credit. Despite those difficulties and others, the year 1947-48 as viewed from my office and in retrospect seems to have flowed by with only a few minor interruptions and with practically no major ones.

though the young man himself realizes that he cannot succeed in the highly competitive field into which he is forced. In any event, I find that the unfortunate choices are made quite frequently in the sciences and engineering subjects, and unless we manage to remedy the error at a relatively early point in a student's academic career, we have problems eventually regarding the eligibility of our men for admission to professional schools, and we also find it virtually impossible to arrange a suitable curriculum for the men who realize too late that they have made a mistake by remaining in the science fields. STUDENT AcTIVITIES AND FRATERNITIEs A spontaneous burgeoning of a number of new organizations characterized the year. Some of them were short-lived, being either experiments or the results of whimsey. Others seemed to meet a real need and will continue to exist. The old a nd well established activities, furthermore, attracted new members and flourished to greater extent, I believe, than at any time since pre-war days. (con tinued on page 7)

Convocation Opens 126th Year

ENROLLMENT AND REGISTRA noN IN CouRSES In my opinion, we should be more disturbed perhaps by the relatively high proportions of students registered in Chemistry, Engineering, and Pre-Medicine. Our courses in those fields are overcrowded and there is little that can be done at present to expand our facilities for giving instruction in the laboratory sciences. I have been conferring with the departments involved to help establish a control of the number of students that can be allowed to continue as science majors at the end of both the Freshman and Sophomore years. It happens all too often that young men embark blithely on a course of study for which they have little aptitude but which seems to them to carry a high degree of social prestige, or it may be that the parents of a student insist upon his taking work that will prepare him for some particular profession even

Owen Morgan, '06, Trustee, Former Treasurer, Dies OwEN MoRGAN, trustee and former treasurer, died at his summer home in Weekapaug, R hode Island, on August 31. In his passing the College loses a most loyal alumnus who served his Alma Mater faithfully as treasurer during World War II and was an active member of the Executive and Finance Committees of the Board ofT rustees.

Mr. Morgan was born in Dallas, Texas, on January 14, 1883, the son of the late Richard and Lilly Morgan. His father had been a judge of the Forty-Fourth District Court. After receiving his early education at the St. Paul's School, Garden City, Long Island, Mr. Morgan entered Trinity in September, 1902, with the class of 1906. He was elected class president his Freshman year and class day chairman his Senior year. For three years he played on the football team, being named captain in 1904. He was a member of the baseball team for four years. At graduation he was awarded the McCook Trophy for his athletic prowess and all-round leadership. Mr. Morgan was a member of the Sophomore Dining Club and Medusa. His fraternity was the Epsilon Chapter of Delta Psi. From 1906 to 1909 Mr. Morgan was associated with Brown Durrell Company in New York City. He then joined the actuarial department of the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company in Hartford. After two years of traveling for the company, he entered the cashier's department and in 1923 was elected assistant cashier. Two years later he was named assistant secretary. In 1930 Mr. Morgan left the insurance business to join the Society for Savings Bank. He was named assistant secretary, and shortly afterwards became vice president and secretary, positions he continued to hold until his death. Mr. Morgan always maintained his interest in Trinity affairs. He served as a member of the Athletic Advisory Council and as treasurer of the College Athletic Association. In 1924 he was elected Senior Fellow and in 1927 Alumni Trustee for a three year term. The Trustees appointed him treasurer of the College in January, 1939, and for nearly ten years his sound financial judgment has been of tremendous value. He resigned the office of treasurer on May 1, 1947, but still continued to serve on the Executive and Finance Committees of the Trustees. Funeral services were held at Trinity Church, Hartford, with Bishop Walter H. Gray, Honorary 1941, officiating. Mr. Morgan had been treasurer and vestryman of this church for fifteen years. He leaves his wife, the former Miss Emily Tenney Silsby, whom he married on June 28, 1913, at Newbury, Vermont; and two sons, Richard, IV, and William S., Trinity 1939.

DEAN'S REPORT (continued

page 6)

The major dances sponsored by the three upper classes were successful affairs from the point of view of the student body. The ]esters presented a repertoire that was unusually large because of the experience gained by them in summer stock during the vacation period. The Tripod, the IV)', and the Review had their usual problems, but appeared regularly so that any student who felt an urge to write for publication had a chance to do so. We have not preserved the programs that went out into the night air of the campus from WR TC, although some of the features, particularly in the early evening hours, were done very well and provided a valuable experience for those who helped to create them. The College Senate evinced a willingness to accept responsibilities and a considerable ingenuity in dealing with the problems of student life. Progress was made towal;l:i our goal of increasing the scope of student government to the point of autonomy. The Interfraternity Council was also active and helpful. A new constitution was drawn up and approved, including among other features the membership on the Council of an alumnus from each fraternity chapter. I am glad to report that the Interfraternity Council has been showing a wholesome interest in all matters that pertain to fraternity life instead of limiting itself to rushing rules, as was the case only a few years ago. According to the new constitution, the Council may exercise authority with regard to the conduct of social affairs at the several fraternity houses . The use of such powers will constitute another step toward the student government that we want to establish at Trinity.

The Rev. Henry DuBois, '7 6 Becomes Oldest Alumnus

Since the death of Or. Alfred P. Grint, the Rev . Henry Ogden DuBois, '76, is the College's oldest alumnus. He was born in Zanesville, Ohio, on March 27 , 1855, and after preparing at the Shattuck School, Faribault, Minnesota, he entered Trinity in 1872 with the class of 1876. As an undergraduate he rowed stroke oar on the crew for two seasons and was elected captain his senior year. He was Class Day Poet and a member of Phi Beta Kappa. His fraternity is the Epsilon Chapter of Delta Psi. After his graduation in 1876 Mr. DuBois studied a year at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. He then decided to enter the ministry and transferred to the Philadelphia Theological Seminary from where he graduated in 1880. The year before he received his Master of Arts degree from Trinity. The Rev. Mr. DuBois was ordained a priest in 1881 at Trinity Church, Philadelphia, and served as an assistant to the rector of the Church of the Transfiguration and the Church of the Ascension in that city until 1888. He then removed to Rye, New York, and served as a priest in the Catholic Apostolic Church, New York City, but still retained his standing as a priest of the Episcopal Oioce e of Pennsylvania. For many years the Rev. Mr. DuBois was coadjutor to the Bishop, and in 1897 he moved to New York City where he is now living. The Rev. Mr. DuBois has always maintained an active interest in his Alma Mater. He has had several relatives who have attended the College: his brother, George M., 1874; his brother-inlaw, the Rev. William R. Mackay, 1867; and his nephew, Gaylord M. DuBois, 1925.

Eighty-two Graduates Placed Eighty-two recent Trinity College graduates have accepted positions in business and industry at an average starting alary of $2600, according to the annual report of John F. Butler, '33, Director of Placement. While 82 students have reported acceptance of jobs, 62 have been accepted at graduate schools. Twenty other men received job offers, but did not report their decisions to the College. Because many companies were still looking for young men for training programs, June graduates experienced little difficulty in getting jobs, Mr. Butler said. Some fields such as personnel, advertising and industrial production did not provide as many openings as in the previous year, but on the whole there were ample opportunities for the 1948 graduate. Graduates received an average of three job offers. Salaries ranged from 1800 to $3700. In the business field 23 men entered industry, 21 are employed in insurance and insurance sales and 10 are teaching. The remaining men entered selling, merchandising, utilities, investments, banking, civil service, journalism, personnel, radio , and social service work. Among those students in the graduate school group, 12 have been accepted in medical school, 11 are entering theological schools, 7 are continuing studies in business school, while 6 each have gone into the fields of law and engineering. Other students hope to receive their graduate degrees in art, chemistry, drama , education, English, history, languages, literature, music, physics, and social service. Mr. Butler reported that career counseling is considered the most important function of Trinity's Placement Office. Consequently, the program last year included 1,495 personal interviews by the placement director. Eighteen career meetings featured guest speakers from various fields of business and the professions. Forty-seven companies conducted 510 路 oterviews at Trinity while Trinity men were referred to 276 other companies. Two hundred ninety-nine undergraduates registered for part-time and summer employment, 525 referrals were made and 264 were employed through the Placement Office. T

Enrollment 892; Non-Vets 1n Majority For the third year student enrollment broke all previous records with 892 men registering in the regular College. In addition, there are 17 graduate students and 405 men and women in the evening division making a total of 1312. For the first -time since the war, there are more non-veterans than veterans. The figures show 490 non-veterans and 402 former service men registered; but the veteran bulge is still reflected in the class statistics which list 230 freshmen, 259 sophomores, 246 juniors and 157 seniors. Usually the freshman class is the largest in College. Because of the small number of seniors enrollment may increase slightly next year. Ir is then expected that the total will gradually shrink to 650 or 700. Four hundred and ninety-two men are living

in the dormitories or fraternity houses, and 400 at home. Thirty-seven percent are residents of Greater Hartford. The undergraduates come from twenty-five states and eight foreign countries - China, England, Greece, Hungary, Panama, Spain, Venezuela and Yugoslavia. Dean Clarke, recently appointed Dean of Students, reports that the College has one teacher to 12.6 students. There are 65 full-rime faculty members and 9 part-time instructors who teach courses equivalent to 5.4 full-time faculty members. In extension, 147 are taking a full time program of five courses, 50 are taking four courses, 23 are in three courses, 65 are taking two, and 120 are taking a single course. Evening registration includes 69 women.

Freshmen Have Active Orientation W eek TRINITY FRESHMEN, 228 strong, were given a good start in College life this fall by a week of orientation preceding the opening of classes on September 20. New features of freshman week included an afternoon picnic directed by Dean Clarke, and fraternity receptions. The picnic featured field sports, swimming, hiking, singing and talks by Dean Clarke, Dan Jessee, Ray Oosting and student activity leaders. Each freshman was invited to visit every fraternity at receptions held from Wednesday to Sunday of freshman week. This pre-rushing feature was considered an outstanding success by both the houses and the new men. The week opened with the traditional Chapel service, followed by a meeting at which Professor Wilbert S. Ray spoke on study habit and John F. Butler, '33, spoke on career selection. Early in the week, each freshman met for a half-hour or more with his faculty advisor to discuss courses and schedules. High point of

the week was the President's Dinner for the class Friday evening. Speakers were Pre ident Funston, Colonel John R. Reitemeyer, '21, president of the National Alumni Association, and Dean Arthur H. Hughes. Judge Alex W. Creedon, '09, acted as toastmaster. Receptions by the four Interfaith Council organizations and a Sunday Vespers service closed the freshman week. During the registration periods for sports and activities, 60 freshmen signed up for football, 40 for soccer, 12 for cross country, 25 for the Tripod and Review, 63 for the Glee Club and many others for the Jesters, Band and Radio Station. One hundred and nineteen men were pledged to the fraternities during rush week: Alpha Chi Rho 22, Alpha Delta Phi 12, Delta Kappa Epsilon 17, Delta Phi 15, Delta Psi 10, Psi Upsilon 18, Sigma Nu 10, Theta Xi 15.

Eating Out of the Window by ROBERT RAMAKER, '48

(Ed1tor's Note. Robert Ramaker, who graduated last February, is a short-term missionary of the Near East Mission of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. He is stationed at T alas, Turkey, where he is on the staff of the Boys' School.) Traveling by rail in Turkey is a novel and a reasonably prompt means of transportation, especially to teachers who travel at half fare. During the summer months, everyone leaves the car windows open, preferring to defy the fierce sun and flying soot, in favor of being fanned by the hot breath of June, July, and August. Few passengers use the dining-car. Most bring their provisions in thatched baskets, or lack ing these, "ear our of the window." "Eating out of the window" can be a painfu l excurs ion for the unadjusted stomach. As each passenger train draws to a village or city stop, clamoring youngsters run alongside the cars displaying and selling bread of all shapes and tastes; glasses of water "cold as ice" served from one cup; "ayran," a sour milk concoction - healthy, bur it tastes abominable to this resident - it, roo, is served from one cup, dipped into a metal pail or pitcher; "gazosu," a bottled, lemon-flavored, carbonated beverage, a lso greers the parched traveler. Gazosu is a hasty drink since the young-

seers wait impatiently for the emptying bottles. The passengers usually oblige by taking all six qunces in one tilt. The youngsters who don't call our their liquid fare, have themselves loaded with bunches of veregables or fruit . . . whatever is grown locally. A dozen apples may be sewn together with green thread, or bunches of grapes may be neatly inclosed in bags made from old newspapers. Cucumbers, small watermelons, and honeydew melons find ready rakers amongst the summer travelers. The many soldiers favor the bags of green pears. (Uniforms appear in conspicuous numbers over here.) What greenness isn't eaten, furnishes ideal ammunition to fling from car windows. This boisterous practice quickly disconcerts fellow passengers and th e conductors. (It's then that volatile dispositions come in full view.) During August, hot corn is offered, the texture of which resembles field corn. The young, eager vendors, in most cases, walk with bare feet, beckon with dirty hands, scamper through the hot railway yard dust in clothes ill-fitted and grimy, bur their black eyes d a nce with delight whenever they make an exchange. Their lor is a happy one in spire of irs unsanitary appearance. "Eating our of the window" has great sport, but a jack-knife and a silent prayer for the intestines art! vital utensils.

Appoint Three Air Officers To Military Science Faculty

Capr. Hamilron

Major Taylor

Capr. McGann

UNDER THE command of Major William E. Taylor of The Dalles, Oregon, recently appointed Professor of Military Science and T aeries, eightyfive students have enrolled in the Basic Air Force Reserve Officers Training Program and seventeen others are taking the Advanced Course. The ROTC headquarters are in Alumni Hall. The unit drills once a week in their new forest green officers' uniforms directly behind the building. Major Taylor, a graduate of the San Antonio Air Force Training Center, also studied at Whitman College, Walla Walla, Washington, and the University of Oregon. He was commanding officer of the 25th Materiel Squadron at Wheeler Field in Hawaii when the Japs struck at Pearl Harbor. During the war he served at Hickam Field, Hawaii, and as assistant operations officer of the 7th Bomber Command. Later he has been stationed in Panama with the 6th Bomber Command, and as an instructor at the Air Tactical School at Tyndall Field, Florida. At Trinity he will teach History and Organization of the Air Force, Maps and Aerial Photographs, Aeronautics, Air Intelligence, and Air Operations. Captain Hamilton of Austin, Texas, enlisted in the Air Force early in the war and served sixteen monrhs in New Guinea and the Phillippines as a B-24 commander. He also has flown with the Air Transport Command and the Troop Carrier Command. As assistant professor of Military Science and T aeries he will teach Military Organization, Military Leadership, Supply, Navigation, Meteorology, and Guided Missiles. Captain McGann of Forest Hills, Long Island, taught last year at Colgate with the rank of assistant professor of Military Science and Tactics which position he holds here. A graduate of Queens College he was a communications officer in the Air Forces in this country, Australia, New Guinea , the Philippines, and Japan. At Trinity he will teach Leadership and Drill, Military Law, Communications, Transportation, and the National Defense Act and ROTC.

Merle Walker Directs Band Under the supervision of Merle Walker, newly appointed director, the Band should make marked improvement and distinct expansion over last year's group. Already twenty-five men are hard at work and several instruments are badly needed to attract new members. If any alumnus has any of the following items which he is not using, please communicate with or send them to Joseph C . Clarke, Dean of Students, at the College; one pair of cymbals; two B-Flat clarinets; one trumpet; one flute or piccolo; one Sousaphone or double B-Fiat bass; one alto horn; and one snare drum.

Campus Improvements Completed Workmen were busy on the campus throughout the summer in several improvements for buildings and grounds. A black-top walk was laid from the Class of 1890 Gate on Vernon Street to Alumni Hall and across the lower campus to Jarvis Laboratory. The rest-rooms on Trinity Field were rebuilt, four tennis courts were resurfaced, the interiors of the Chemistry and Jarvis Laboratories were repainted and fluorescent lights were installed in the Biology Laboratory. Drainage work was started on ard which will be used for an enlarged parking lot near Hallden Laboratory and hundreds of truckloads of fill material were dumped in this lot. The campus roadway, adjacent to the new Field House, is being widened. Landscaping of the south section of the campus is being extended in the Elton Hall area. A generous gift from Nelson A. Shepard, '21, provided top-soil for the athletic areas. Final conditioning was given the new Freshman baseball diamond which will be ready for use in the spring. The playing area in front of Memorial Field House has been converted into two practice football fields to relieve wear on Trinity Field. Soccer has been shifted next to the Alumni Hall. Professional tree experts â&#x20AC;˘ brought the Dutch Elm disease to a standstill.
