COEDS AT TRINITY

How They Will Change The Quality of Campus Life Announcement by the Trustees that woman candidates for the Trinity bachelor's degree will be admitted in September 1969 brought a nod of approval from the majority of the members of the College Community. The presence of women will have a significant effect on campus life in a number of areas, both scholastic and non-academic. Some of the ways women will change the tempo of the Community include: more diversified social activities; a broadening of the scope of the placement office; new opportunities for theatrical and musical productions; improved security arrangements; potential for new course offering and additional athletic programs; a need for additional financial aid; and new living arrangements. Most importantly, women are expected to have a profound influence on the quality of life on campus. Tn most administrative offices, the change from an allmale to a coeducational institution will present few operational problems, none of th em insurmountable. What follows was based on interviews with administrators and certain facult y members in areas where it seemed that coeducation will perhaps have the most impact. The Editors asked, "How will coeducation affect your operation?" In order to serve the future coeds of the College, the Chapel has few actual changes to make in either its facilities or its program. An important- and one of the happiest changes - will be the introduction of soprano and alto voices in the Chapel Choir. This will especially contribute to the variety of music that the Choir will sing. Further Chapel activities, such as weekend conferences, are now being planned as coeducational activities. One might suspect that, as we graduate young ladies, there will be a rise in the number of marriages solemnized in the Chapel as the bride selects her college chapel for the event. Of greater significance will be the change in quality of human relations on the campus. The opportunity for students to deal with one another as men and women throughout the week, in the Chapel and in the classroom, should lead to a deeper appreciation of the human person, both male and female. This sexual difference in the past has been observed only on weekends or on road trips to a woman's school. By relating men and women into the

2

wholeness of collegiate life, coeducation should result in a new wholesomeness in human life. Alan C. Tull College Chaplain

Coeducation will have a significant effect as it will provide the opportunity to compete for good musicians and particularly for good singers. The Glee Club- and other musical groups - will be able to perform a whole wealth of material not possible before. In general, women students will have a certain civilizing influence. They temper things and will bring a sophistication to the campus. Robert E. Gronquist Assistant Professor of Music Director of the Glee Club

The impact of coeducation on the department of fine arts will most likely be severe. This prediction does not concern the mode of instruction but, rather, the probable increase in the popularity of the fine arts elective and major. Art courses are traditionally received with greater enthusiasm at women's colleges and that popularity will no doubt accrue to Trinity. Such a development should set a good pace and elicit a lively rivalry between the sexes in both studio and lecture courses. At the same time, the studio and lecture facilities of the Austin Arts Center are already overcrowded. Classes have been forced into hallways, seminar rooms and several studio courses are even now being conducted in the basement of Boardman Hall. With well over a quarter of the undergraduates already enrolled in at least one fine arts course, the need for new courses and instructors can only be temporarily satisfied. If as expected, coeducation brings a consequent increase in department enrollment, these strains may reach a drastic degree and result in major revisions in the projected needs of the fine arts over the next decade. Mitchel N. Pappas Associate Professor of Fine Arts Director, Widener Gallery

As the physical plant of the athletic department was built for male use only, making changes in the facilities


has been the first consideration. The area at the west end of the pool is being converted into a locker room and will accommodate about 75 girls. It is the same area that has been used by girls during the summer sessions. When the female enrollment increases, other arrangements will be made with the possibilities of some major rennovation. The original design of the Ferris Athletic Center, now under construction and set for opening in the fall , provided a route from Trowbridge to the new physical education building. But it was through the new men's locker room! Construction of a wall solved that problem. There will be a regular physical education program for the coeds and a female instructor may be added to the P.E. staff. As the number of coeds increases, and depending upon their interests, there is a good chance that extracurricular activities could include such sports as field hockey, archery and synchronized swimming. This could eventually lead to intercollegiate competition. It is also envisioned that modern dance could be included as an interdisciplinary program with the department of the arts. Of course, girls also play certain sports already offered -swimming, squash, tennis, golf, bowling, volleyball and basketball (with six to a side and with limited zones). And it is expected that the band and the corps of cheerleaders will have a new look. Oh, yes- swim suits in the pool! Karl Kurth Jr. Professor of Physical Education Director of Athletics

The greatest impact of coeducation will be in the area of social activities. Girls are more socially conscious, and as they become more involved, the men will follow. A major problem with an increased enrollment, however, will be food service. Since completion of Mather Hall in 1960, the undergraduate population has increased from 975 to 1350 and the kitchen and dining facilities are already overtaxed. This is particularly evident at lunchtime. A survey is planned to determine the kitchen capacity and to recommend possible shifts within the buildingperhaps relocation of the post office and the book store, for instance. One word seems to sum up what the future holds for Mather Hall- Changes! Del A. Shllkret Director, Mather Hall

The Placement Office will perform the same services for women as it has for men but in somewhat different areas. For instance, there are certain graduate school opportunities for women which have been of no concern in the past. As for career opportunities for women, these have definitely expanded during the last ten years. At least half of the companies that recruit at Trinity also recruit at women's colleges. It will probably be advisable to add a woman assistant to the Placement staff in the very near future; a person qualified to advise and assist the coed students. John F. Butler Director of Placement

For the drama department, coeducation will help alleviate some of the casting problems experienced in the past and will certainly increase the range of plays that can be produced. Also, coeds will increase skills in costuming and makeup. In fact, the whole theatre operation will improve as girls can spark activities and carry them through better than men. With both men and women students, drama classes will be easier to conduct and more meaningful to the participants. Girls on campus should result in increased activities in the Arts Center as a whole. George E. Nichols ill Professor of Drama Director, Austin Arts Center

Coeducation will not affect the operation of the development office in any significant way. It is not anticipated that alumni support will diminish. In fact, the decision to admit coeds has "plus" factors for development. The speed with which the College undertook coeducation sbows a progressive attitude that should prove attractive to foundations and stir the interests of the more recent graduates, the majority of whom favored coeducation when they were undergraduates. When the time comes, the same techniques will be used to solicit support from alumni and alumnae alike. Women are traditionally good campaign workers and will eventually share the fund raising responsibilities. Harry K. Knapp Associate Director of Developme/lt

The coeds will be housed in South Campus B and possibly C. These buildings were designed to accommodate women so the rennovation will be minor. Women students will be required to do their own housekeeping, just as men must do. There will be no "house mothers" in the dormitories but rather, a resident adviser- a nurse or female graduate student. In addition, women custodians will perform janitorial functions . It is felt that women will give a new impetus to many campus organizations such as the French and Spanish Clubs, Tripod, Ivy, and the Jesters. Social events will assume a new dimension as women naturally take the initiative in such matters. The fraternities will probably offer social memberships to the coeds. During the current semester, several £rater• nities have extended meal privileges to the Vassar students. It wiJI no doubt be necessary to make some adjustments in menues- at the fraternity houses as well as in the College dining halls - to cater more to feminine appetites. Bursary employment will be available for the coeds although it will be somewhat different than what is currently available to male students- office jobs, waitresses, baby sitters, for example. Leonard R. Tomat Assistant D ean for Community Life

The presence of coeds on the campus will have a definite affect on the security operation and special precautions will be taken. Improved lighting will be necessary

There will be no appreciable change in the function of this office for perhaps three or four years. At the area association level, the concentration of women graduates in a given locale will determine the direction of future alumni/ alumnae activities. Of course we will eventually have to consider some drastic changes in our reunion planning. John A. Mason Alumni Secretary

Bookstore personnel are not used to serving quantities of female customers but they are aware that they are fussier and more intense than men. The operation of the bookstore will not change substantially except for the ad-

Perhaps The First Alumna The first bachelor's degree to be awarded to a coed in the history of the College will probably be conferred in June 1970, and the most likely recipient will be an attractive blue-eyed blonde from West H artford. While Trinity doesn't officially become coeducational until September, Miss Roberta Russell is alread y on campus taking a full semester's work. She was admitted into the second semester as a transfer st udent from Hebrew University, Jerusalem. Miss Russell , who intended to complete her studies in Israel, left the University and returned in January because of illness at home. When she learned Trinity planned to admit coeds- and that 17 students from Vassar were already on campus in an exchange program for the Trinity term- she applied for admission and was accepted. A native of Hartford, Miss Russell was graduated with distinction in 1965 from Chaffee School in nearby Windsor. "I had been on the Trinity campus while at Chaffee," she sa id , "but never dreamed of being a student here. It is ideal , however, as I can complete my studies close to home. " She is majoring in English and hopes to return to Israel to teach and help with the immigration and absorption of Jews from the West into that nation . " It is an entirely different way of life than we know in this country," she said , "a nd westerners, in particular seem to have trouble adjusting."

It is a myth that women students require less scholarship money that men students. Based on applications received so far for the next academic year, the need appears to be about equal. If the experience with men in the past is any criteria, women on scholarship should prove to be among the best students. Aside from coeducation, the expanded enrollment will result in a need for additional financial aid money. It is of utmost importance that scholarship endowment be increased. At the present, the scholarship program is not completely endowed and funds have to be allocated from the operating budget. JohnS. Waggett Director, Financial Aid Associate Director, Admissions

She first visited Israel when she was 16 on a tour with other young people. She returned in 1966 on a summer visit with her parents and decided to transfer to Hebrew University from Barnard College where she had completed her freshman year. She had been there for the past two and a hal f years. In the middle of May, 1967, she recalls, the campus was suddenly deserted when all the young men went back into the Army, and the young women took first aid courses in preparation for the imminent war. On Monday, June 5, she was visiting relatives in Natanya, a small community 20 miles north of Tel Aviv. "The last thing I expected," she said, "was that Natanya would be bombed." The bombs fell Tuesday night but neither she nor her relatives were hurt. On June 11 , when the short war ended, the students returned to the campus and took their examinations. Miss Russell said that the students at Hebrew University tend to be more "boisterous, noisy and talkative" than the men at Trinity. She added that the average age of an Israeli undergraduate male is 22. They come to college after three years of military service. "I find it very quiet here and the students wellmannered ," she said . The 21-year-old coed is the only girl in her English classes. And how does she feel about that? "I feel I make them all very nervous," she replied. She finds "more academic pressure" at Trinity and more of an involvement with the institution than at Hebrew University. "There, the students were of different ages," she said , "many were married and many commuted. There were even some uniformed soldiers taking courses." The prospect of probably being the first coed to receive a Trinity bachelor's degree a year from June brought a smile to her face. "It seems funny," she admitted , "to think I might be the only girl in the graduating class when at Chaffee there were no men." And she added , "I consider it a privilege."


THE SHAPE OF THOSE TO COME

36-23-36 By W. HOWIE MUIR '51 Director of Admissions

Those are numbers that not any coach might be content with, though they are the ones that the officers of admissions (all male) ) would be pleased to point at. But while appearances count and statistics are important to admissions officers for defining a freshman class, a college lives by the people it enrolls. And starting now, the people are men and women. On January 11 , 1969, Trinity made a decision about women that, in consequence, rivals the result of a missing rib for Adam . Even as I sit here putting words to paper on a night filled with snow and wind, the echo of female shrieks and laughter out-of-doors foretells the human composition and life style of the years to come on this campus. The girls calling now are guests. Next year those voices will sing "Neath the Elms" with the same ardency of any of our men. Obviously, women are here to stay- in business, in medicine, in teaching, in politics, in life - and Trinity at long last recognizes the need to educate undergraduates of both sexes. Male undergraduates, and males who would be undergraduates, clamor for the natural association of females not only on the weekends but daily in a living, learning configuration. There is no arguing that fact that in terms of elapsed time our decision to go coeducational was a "fast one." We covered the course in a time calculated to please any keeper of a stopwatch. Yet, it was over three years ago that a director of guidance in one of the largest high schools in the United States predicted for me that in ever so short a time, most colleges like Trinity would be coeducational. She saw then what we have so belatedly discovered- the allure of single sex colleges is gone for nine male college-bound students out of ten. And I can vouch personally for the intensity of the study of mounds of prophetically pertinent data, for the hours exhausted in debate before the conclusion was drawn. Indeed, our final conclusions were so compelling that the date of the substantive report later delivered to the Trustees was Christmas Day. Vassar coeds on campus this sem ester portend th e shape of 1hose to com e. At right, th ey pursue very feminine pastimes.

What will be the impact on admissions? It's hard to tell. We may assume, of course, a greater number of applicants. Not only will we have several hundreds of women applying, but I believe the male applicant pool will increase in size. Leaving aside the new factors of personality characteristics, vocational objectives, emotional dimensions, extracurricular interests and involvements of women, the fact of coeducation at Trinity will enlarge, and, I believe, at the same time enhance the diversity of male candidates. Rather than diminish the number of qualified candidates who are football players, for example, I believe the effect will be salutatory. R ather than emasculate the deeply ingrained desire of the College to evaluate applicants with an eye to their humanity (as against an admissions eye bent mainly on assessing Scholastic Aptitude Test scores, academic rank in class, grade-getting characteristics) , I believe our determination to see people as people will be sharpened. For years now, Trinity has operated in the belief that we are not run-of-the-mill, not just a degree-granting institution, not just a pre-professional training plant, not just a manufacturer of look-alike, think-alike, do-alike automata. There is an established and hard-practiced basic tenet that we want to enroll the very best we can get, intellectually tempered always with strong consideration for those other quaHties of character and personality (motivation, honesty, integrity self-reliance, sense of responsibility, compassion, toughness, self-respect, maturity, to name some) that are believed ought to be found in Trinity students. We want life, agitation, debate, heterogeneity, abrasiveness in the student body. We want the components of newspaper people, chamber music groups, debate clubs, political action groups. theatre arts clubs, student government bodies, musical organizations, and so on and on. The College is committed to a full program in athletics. We are determined that we continue to enroll the best scholar-athletes we can, that if we are to compete, we will indeed compete, not just exist as punching bags. Implementation of the Trustee decision is a challenging prospect- for next fall , at any rate. We want to have a substantial number of women here in September, if possible. The company of 1,250 men becomes a weighty matter for a mere handful of females. Thus, the Class of '73 probably will include about 300 men and , hopefully, 60 to 75 girls. In addition, we will attempt to enroll around 50 women by transfer. For a period following the announcement of the Trustees' decision, there was a heavy correspondence from women inquiring about the application procedures. The inquiry continues day by day though at a somewhat reduced intensity. Women desiring to enter as freshmen are told that applications may be made up to May 1 and that they will have word of the College's decision whether to admit them within a few weeks after their files are complete. Application for admission by transfer may be made by women up to August 15. Financial aid will be made available to women on the same basis as for men evidence of need for financial help. Such evidence is provided by the candidate and her family on a special form called the Parents' Confidential Statement. It can be obtained from the high school guidance office or by

6

writing to the College Scholarship Service. There will be no lowering of academic standards for women (nor any artificial heightening of them for men) . The women enrolled for next year, though it is now very late in the season to hope for a great number of wellqualified candidates, will be the personal and academic equals of their male counterparts. In the years ahead, it would seem to me that the freshman classes will run in total enrollment between 400 and 425. That is, we can expect approximately 260 men, and between 150 and 160 women. For the next several years, female transfer candidates will be encouraged, though in time the volume of transfer business probably will have to be curtailed as we reach enrollment limits. It seems likely, too, that we may have a small number of women who, with families partially or fully grown, may wish to pursue an undergraduate education that at one time was begun but never completed. It is another way for Trinity to serve in the community. In return, we develop another facet in the diverse image that is so rapidly emerging on this campus. It is our belief that Trinity will be a better college in duality of its student body. The same care in selection will continue to be exercised. While we will have to establish new activities at Trinity for women , we can expect to find others presently in existence much enhanced. Sports "for men only" and other singularly male activities can expect continued support, for the "policy" of admissions will not consciously permit their quality to diminish. It was only four years ago that our enrollment was under 1 000, after all , and there will be at least 1,000 men in the College in the future. The consideration of sons of Trinity alumni still will take precedence qver other similiarly qualified candidates. Of course now, that will be applicable to women, too. There is little doubt that in the future the standards by which admission is conferred will tighten. But they will tighten with an eye to the assessment of all human qualities, not merely to academic ones, or ethnic ones, or racial ones or sexual ones. And, we believe that we c&n look forward to an alumni/alumnae body that is equally supportive of the College, for it will have experienced equally the rich fruits of a Trinity education. Beget a student body that will justify the decision of January 11 , 1969? 36-23-36- nice statistics if we can get 'em, do you not agree? Adam did.

Congratulations to Dr. Lockwood for moving Trinity College boldly into coeducation. The time may come when strictl y one-sex educational institutions will be viewed as anachronistic. Trinity's unique method of molding the uncommon man through emphasis upon the individual will be enhanced by coeducation . As Maurice Chevalier would say: "Cherchez Ia femme." John L. Bonee '43 President, Alumni Association


VOICE FROM POUGHKEEPSIE

The Vassar Experiment I

{

By now, the Courant, the Times, AP, UPI, Chet, David, and Walter have all trumpeted the news that a new milestone in education has been reached, that The Boys have arrived at Vassar, and that reactions have been various and sundry. Invariably, this report was followed by brief, slightly risque speculation on whether or not the "sex" (they mean SEX) lives of the experimental participants have undergone any significant deviations. Worth about three hundred words and a foggy wire photo in most papers. Since the initial publicity, most comment on the Vassar Experiment (to some mip.ds, synonymous with The Harrad Experiment) has been limited to how Vassar has changed - no more curfews, leave cards, parietal restrictions- or, more covertly, how lucky those guys are. All of this is fairly obvious and in many ways superficial. Of much more significance is the subtle, yet important, change occurring to the guys. This change, while affecting different men in varying degrees, has had the effect of reinstating intersexual relationships to a level of rationality that American society at large has all but destroyed. Let's get one thing clear immediately; this is not coeducation. Vassar, with 1500 girls and 78 boys, is exciting, rewarding, and often it evokes sublime ecstasy- but it is not coeducation. I say this as a warning. Many people, as well as a few administrators, probably think that the "experimental semester" will yield important information on the feasibility of coeducation. Utterly fallacious thinking. What this semester will prove is that when X boys are placed in close quarters wi.th 19X girls, the boys are going to respond favorably. And everyone knew that, anyway. The relatively huge female contingent is, of course, the predominate influence on the boys. The situation is analogous to the "total immersion" plan of learning foreign languages; by being continuously surrounded by linguistic experts, one learns, not only to speak the language, but also to adopt a different pattern of thinking more suitable to a new cultural situation . Similarly, the men here, figuratively overwhelmed by girls, are finding changes occur in their own set of values. For example, "dating" between Vassar men and women has become somewhat obsolete, I use the word "rating" to refer to that American institution of a spo-

By THEODORE M. LIEVERMAN Trinity, Class of 1971

radic and competitive social relationship between a boy and a girl in which the object, while slightly different for each participant, is normally manipulative. The degree of competition and intent to manipulate would seem to be inversely proportional to the amount of time the men and women spend together. In other words, the more time a guy spends with a girl, the less desire he has to exploit her. Increasing the number of girls decreases this desire even more. I think it's safe to say that most of us here feel little need for any kind of social competition. So, without normal ulterior motives, we met the girls as real, legitimate people, an important development in itself. For their part, the girls were extremely cordial to us and helped us become oriented to the mores of Vassar. With relative ease, we were assimilated into the customary life. The important change caused by this feeling of 路~eing a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court has been one of perception. The Vassar men have become much more aware of how an American college girl- or perhaps just a girl- thinks, reacts, responds, and makes decisions. This heightened perception, I believe, has made all of us more sensitive in our relationships with girls, more understanding, even more compassionate. Possibly this sounds inconsequential, even petty; in our contemporary world, however, the real, so far unsolvable problems are based on faulty interpersonal relations, not a lack of technical knowledge. Any structure which encourages a better understanding of other people is worthwhile, regardless of any other product it might bring about. Again, I don't mean to suggest that life for the girls here hasn't changed. It has. Vassar, however, is still structured as a women's institution, and it will remain so as long as the girl-boy ratio is so disproportionate. The changes are with us. We are in the same position as Black Americans, living in a white society with white values. What's really happening at Vassar is a freeing of the mind, a discarding of false roles and meaningless psychological games that our society seems to encourage. The change is still embryonic, sometimes difficult to perceive, but nonetheless real. The Vassar Experiment is provid, ing many benefits to the guys here. This is just possibly the least understandable but most important.

VOICE FROM THE HILL

Coeducation, Amen By SONJA CHRISTY Vassar, Class of 1970

Perhaps one of the greatest shocks of my life occurred when I arrived at Vassar as a freshman and realized, to my dismay, that it was a women's college and a selfstyled women's world. It took me fully two years to reconcile myself to this fact and to somehow adjust to it. On January 14, 1969, I experienced another cultural shock. I found myself registering at Trinity and, along with my 16 other Vassar cohorts, bravely entering an all-male world. I don't really view this semester at Trinity as an experience in coeducation for we Vassar girls are absurdly out-numbered. Yet, as the semester wears on and our presence here becomes less and less conspicuous, I do get a glimmering of what coeducation will be like and what changes it will make in a seriously defective "mono-educational" system . Vassar and Trinity will not be properly coed until members of the opposite sex come to be regarded as a normal part of the campus scene. More precisely, not until this year's sophomore class, who have had two years of all-male or all-female education, have graduated . What I take for normal has been greatly influenced by my experience at Vassar. Normality for me is wearing my jeans to class every day. Normality means opening all my own doors, lighting all my own cigarettes, buying my own cups of coffee. All of these things, of course, go against the grain of traditional male gallantry. I still feel like this semester is some sort of absurdly long weekend date. Perhaps the Trinity boys feel the same way. Naturally, I am greatly flattered by all of the attention. What gives me pause, however, is not the attention, but rather my feeling uncomfortable about it. It seems right that I should be treated a little more courteously than "one of the boys." What troubles me is that it is difficult for me to accept this role after having been so much on my own at Vassar, pushi ng my way to the mail box and picking up my books when they fall , for instance. There are two basic arguments that I have often heard against coeducation. One is th at it will eliminate the differences between the sexes; that women, forcing their way into the world of men , will become aggressive and masculine. Sweet femininity will be a thing of the past. Another perhaps more serious charge is that coeducation will destroy the purity of male camaraderie preserved by all-male institutions as well as the source of feminine

8

dignity afforded to a girl at a women's college. I think that both of these arguments are incredibly out-dated and ought to be refuted once and for all. First of all , the idea that the classic weekend date makes young men and women more special to one another and fosters mutual respect is, from my own experience, blatantly false. I have most often found that by Sunday afternoon the last vestiges of good manners have worn away and at best one can autistically retreat to reading the New York Times. At worst, one parts in icy silence and contempt. The cause of this is that the weekend date is not a person but an object. This is true of both sexes. Speaking for the girls, getting away from Vassar on the weekends is a must if one wishes to retain sanity. Everyone wants to go. Hence, a date is first and foremost a chance to get away and only secondly a chance to relate to another human being. Sunday afternoon contempt comes of disillusionment and mutual degradation. Friday you had fooled ycurself into believing that you were not using someone, Saturday you can't understand why you fail to reach the other person . On Sunday you understand. You can't hate yourself so you resent the other sex. This syndrome is a major cause of female aggressiveness and male callousness which I think is more typical of eastern men's and women 's colleges than of the large coed universities. I have few "dates" here at Trinity. I'm grateful for it, too. I do have plenty of male companionship. I reaUy enjoy sitting around in the Cave gabbing between classes, getting to know boys, not as date material, but as friends . In some ways I think deep friendship between a man and a woman is not possible. A girl can get thoroughly engrossed in a romantic problem. It would be hard for a male friend to give her the sort of sympathy and understanding that her girlfriend could. Similarly, it is impossible for me to get terribly enthusiastic over football or basketball. I believe that coeducation will bring with it an appreciation of the differences between men and women. Those differences cannot and will not disappear. Coeducation will, most probably, enhance them . Girls will become more feminine and boys more manly in the most genuine humanistic sense. No longer will there be the need that I personally felt to harden myself, to keep


a cool fac;ade when what one really wants is to feel so much, to smile and laugh without coyness. There won't be any need for a show because who you are and what you are is painfully or pleasantly obvious at an 8:30 Monday morning class. No doubt the glamour of all-male and all-female colleges will subside. But, happily, so too will the callousness that is fostered by the weekend syndrome. The notion that all-male or all-female environments make for a deeper understanding and respect for one's own sex is true but only for negative reasons. If you are only with girls, naturally you will come to understand the feminine point of view. But, merely being a man or a woman will compel understanding and sympathy for members of your own sex. To make these into mutually exclusive worlds, however, is unrealistic and limits one half of the possible range of human social interaction. What men's and women's colleges foster, though not intentionally, is a false pride in one's own sex based not upon any inherent qualities, but rather upon a prejudice against the other sex. I think it is a fine and wonderful thing that men have a sense of fraternity and women of sorority, but not when it is to the exclusion or hindrance of possible friendships between the sexes. The notion

that females invading the all-male Trinity or Yale or Princeton campuses will somehow destroy male solidarity is plainly false. Perhaps the institutionalized forms of solidarity, such as fraternities or eating clubs, will vanish, but not the man-to-man friendship. The same applies to Vassar. Vassar women, I think, are by-andlarge, more unanimously in favor of coeducation than are the Trinity men. When Trinity was founded in 1823 , the idea that women needed to know anything about science or history probably was never even entertained. To enlighten and educate citizens was its aim. Women have long had the vote. It is fitting that, in the spirit of Trinity's founding, women be educated here. Vassar, founded in 1861, was not created as a bastion of female pride but rather to give women an equal opportunity to education. Vassar can be rightly proud of its history in that it has turned out numerous scholars, political activists and artists. But, Vassar's founding purpose has been fulfilled and it must continue the founding spirit which today means coeducation as equality. Perpetuating men's and women's colleges in 1969 would be a perversion rather than a perpetuation of the spirit in which these institutions were founded.

COVER GIRLS

William Hall High and Trinity agree her record of advance placement achievement justified college entrance in September. Jean, a National Merit Scholar semi-finalist, wants to major in psychology or biology. "I've been interested in science since grade school." She adds that her high school teachers in science magnified this interest. Harriet, who intends to major in chemistry or bio-chemistry, also attributes her science interest to "some really fine teachers" in high school. The attractive 5' 9" Miss Melrose stood near the sun dial recently on a wintry day when there was no sun. Her dark eyes looked down the Long Walk and she smiled . "It really is a very pretty campus, even in the winter." Then she added seriously, "I want to come to Trinity because I like the combination that Trinity offers in a fine liberal arts program to go with my interest in chemistry." Jean Dorchester's long hair bobbed gently as she walked across the campus. "I'm still walking on clouds," she said bubbling with enthusiasm. " I've loved this campus," she said, recalling that she would run on the grass as a little girl when her dad visited his College. Later, after browsing in the book store, she reflected , "What has impressed me most about Trinity compared to the other colleges I've seen is that it is a very personal college. Everybody seems so friendly. " Like any girl entering Trinity in the fall , including no doubt some daughters of other alumni , these young ladies are making history. While there will be a few coed transfer students who will receive bachelor degrees at forthcoming commencements , the first class to have a number of undergraduate coeds at its commencement will be 1973. It is not inappropriate that this will come in the I 50th anniversary year of the College.

The two pretty yoiJng ladies gracing our cover (a first for the Alumni Magazine) are making Trinity history together. While they live in separate towns, go to different Connecticut high schools and are of different ages, Miss Jean Dorchester of Manchester and Miss Harriet Melrose of West Hartford suddenly find they have much in common. Both are daughters of alumni and both were the first two coeds accepted by Trinity for the Class of 1973. And oddly enough, both girls intend to major in science, hardly what one would expect to hold as a prevailing trend among women undergraduates. For John Dorchester '44 (M.A . '49) , now a member of the faculty at Hartford State Technical College, and for Ezra Melrose '33 , principal of Bulkeley High School and former principal of Weaver High , the idea of a daughter going to Trinity was unthinkable a year ago. For the record , Jean was the first girl admitted to the class of 1973. Harriet, however, has claim to another distinction , as she is the first high school junior coed admitted to the incoming class at Trinity. Officials at

CAMPUS CLIMATE

The Eye of the Hurricane: Student Unrest A Talk By THEODORE D. LOCKWOOD President

Wherever a college president goes, unlike the girl with bells on her toes, he is asked about the climate on campus. I am not a meteorologist, but the metaphorical possibilities of the weather are intriguing. Sometimes they are quite real , as we have discovered this winter when we have been snowed in. To describe the climate on campus, there are many alternatives. For instance, now that we are all acquainted with the "highs" and "lows" with which forecasters explain weather changes, I suppose that we could characterize the climate as being as unsettled as the leading edge of a low pressure area. Or, to u e the imprecision of a Bermuda forecaster, there are occasional periods of sunshine, considerable cloudjness, with brief and intermittent showers. When a friend of mine sought the imagery of the hurricane, I concurred that such a description was apt indeed. For we on a college campus do live in the eye of the hurricane. Swirling around us are all the vigorous movements within society or, for that matter, within the world. We know they are there ; we experience all the anxiety, and much of the spray, whjch these developments generate. Just because we are at the eye of the hurricane, and not at the fringe, we cannot lift any barricades against intrusion and we have no shutters to close out uneasiaess.

I. Perhaps this is the best point at which to begin an explanation of campus unrest. Colleges are no longer immune, if they ever were, to the problems facing society. We reflect faithfully the uncertainties, the probings, the questionings abroad in the world. The campus is not a sanctuary from society, nor should it be. "The college is much more a mirror of society than the old will admit or the young concede." 1 In this sense the college has responded to changes in the world around us in ways that other institutions - businesses and industry included - have. The question is not whether all these changes have been for the better. I am sure that you would admit that not every change which has affected the business community since 1945, for example, has been good. But there is no retreat. The small private college in particular can no longer pose as a castle housing the treasures of the past, protecting youth from the world. It must experiment and make connections with student wants and needs and with what lies beyond the campus. Such a safe generalization leads me to another observation equally indisputable: students go to college for different reasons now. If, for the moment, we ponder the fact that six million young people now attend a college or university, we must recognize that inevitably there is a wider diversity of reasons - and expectations - for a student to go on to some form of higher education than was true traditionally. At the risk of depressing some of you, I think we must concede that ndt too long ago a son was sent to college. Seldom did he choose, and in some cases at least his previous achievements did not necessarily establish his eligibility for admission. Today most students attend college because they, 1

as well as their parents, realize that it is a necessity. Whether rightly or wrongly, and I am persuaded that on balance it is right, our society has concluded that a college education is a requisite to a rewarding career and a good life. As a nation we have committed large resources to higher education, both public and private. What are the consequences of this assumption? The college has become much more directly than ever before an agent of society both because so many now attend college and because industry and government so directly depend upon its graduates. It is expected to perform a useful role; for, in a way that we parents may not appreciate, society is putting the student in college. This distinction, which I think becomes important as we try to understand campus unrest, has brought an end to academic paternalism. The student is no longer a supplicant awaiting dociley the confirmation of eternal verities. Nor is he an apprentice assuming that he should dutifully imitate teachers whose serene command of certain, and wholly verifiable, knowledge brings to the organization a static hierarchy of courses. As you are the first to sense, I have loaded the case against the classical college. What was 'best has been preserved, I hope ; but today's economy has fundamentally altered the curricula of must colleges. A change has taken place, one that was inevitable as our knowledge has expanded and as we have brought diversity and specialization into the academy. (Once again, to be fair, I am not contending that this change has been necessarily accompanied by a net increase in wisdom.) Society's new view of the college has brought another change of the greatest importance to students. The college has become youth's institution. Our society bas had little enthusiasm of late for absorbing those between ages 18 and 22 into the economic life of the country. We haven't even given them the vote. Yet, the ablest and most articulate of these young people do share something, the coUegiate experience. When they meet with one another, they compare notes. They have a great deal in common. The fact that many of them have automobiles only amplifies the comradeship. Even though they retain a loyalty to their particular college, they regard themselves collectively as an identifiable group in American society. Of course, this fact explains part of the fascination of working on a college campus. Those of us in teaching and administration are very slow to recognize that we are getting older since the students with whom we associate are always the same age! When we hear of a conspiracy among college students, we may be partially right in thereby recognizing that the colleges are the youth centers of today. At least no other inst-itution in our society for example, the home or the church -plays the same role for this age-group. When we put some of these changes together, we can sense why academic colonialism has ended. A democratic style has entered both because society expects the college to serve our democracy and because so many young people are

now gathered together in institutions that are far more alike than different. Ironically, to the degree that society therefore becomes increasingly concerned about what is happening on college campuses, to that degree society confirms this thesis and thus must expect to see what happens either on or off one campus reflected on and off other campuses. May I hasten to add that the public investment in higher education is too great for it to be otherwise, a fact which students in particular are prone to overlook.

II. A pause may refresh . Whenever I speak, as I shall now, about students and their attitudes, I have to warn myself that I may be identifying qualities for the convenience of my argument, qualities which may pot be as comprehensive as I think. This danger reminds me of the story about a cowboy who was riding into the typical town of the wild west. His gun flapping at his side, a grim set to his face, he spotted a series of posts at the edge of the town. On each post was a target, and each target was neatly pierced right in the center of the hull's eye. Somewhat unnerved, the rider pulled up at the saloon and entered to find, as always, the source of all information about the town, the bartender. Deferentially he asked the bartender who could shoot so accurately. While continuing to rub glasses, the bartender nonchalantly replied , "that was the town idiot: he shoots first and then draws the target around the hole." I can only hope that I am on target as I try to isolate those factors which may explain campus unrest. Our preoccupation with campus unrest usually centers on the student. One college president described students in this manner: "Raised in the cities and suburbs, exposed in a middle class way to technological success, exposed earlier to a greater variety of life experiences, encouraged while young to think about the worst of the problems in the adult world and carefully screened into the most reputable universities, the cream of our crop is reacting with Jess and less enthusiasm to the ways of the established educational system."!.! Whether such capsule descriptions are fair and accurate, we have been willing as a society to identify our students by labels. They are a "new breed in search of a new morality ;" they are "activists." They are the "disrespectful generation." They are tomorrow's leaders. They are, incidentally, tomorrow's alumni. They are all these. And they are not all alike. With customary convenience, we group them according to our prejudices. We like to tell ourselves that the vast majority are good students quietly pursuing an education. The description is accurate, but it does not ther~fo re follow that the minority - usually dismissed as activists - are less interested in a good education. When people ask me how I would define the term "student activist," I can only reply that student activists are those not accepted by the Establishment. One prejudice should certainly match another. Of course, there are a few who seem singularly uninterested in their education and devoted to seeking attention! But actually all students are activists in the sense that they actively want their education to relate to the world they see around them. Political activists are another group of whom I shall speak in a moment. If we can get beyond labels, what else can we say about today's student? He - and I apologize for so emphasizing the masculine gender in an institution which is becoming coeducational - is restless, inquisitive, critical, articulate, and bright. In short, students are what we have always wanted them to be. Note that I did not say that they are brighter. Of this I am Jess persuaded . But it is true they are generally better prepared in an academic sense than any previous generation. We are constantly adjusting the curriculum to take account of the improvement in secondary education. Students think we have not gone far enough in this regard. ' William Birenbaum, president of Staten Islan d Community College, "No More Neutrality," Change in Higher Education, JanIWry-Febmary 1969.

Students are now approximately two years more mature physiologically and emotionally than was true, on the average, in 1900. Quite literally they can grow beards more easily! When we combine this earlier maturation with the exposure which they experience from television and the cinema, especially with respect to sex, we are obliged to recognize that they are unprepared to live within some of the restrictions which an earlier generation properly proposed. Much of the vulgarity we rightly abhor comes not from impulsive gratification or disdain alone, but from what they observe of the absence of taste around them. Propell~d by youthful idealism, they readily exaggerate the perennial difference between generations by trying out new styles. Unless we give clear evidence of a belief in our values, those we claim to think indispensable to a good society, we shall not meet the the point of their protest. That they are intellectually more agile than their predecessors only compounds the problem. Students are more politically alert than any previous generation with the possible exception of the 1930's. It is well worth analyzing that implication. In the 1930's many students, though not nearly as many as now, were radicals of one .brand or another. With some arrogance and a touch of profound educational philosophy, faculty used to remark that every student had to go through his Marxist phase. But that political concern of the thirties linked itself with radical sentiments in society at large; it was not isolated on campuses. Today students of a similar sentiment appeal to the separatist disposition of fellow students rather than build durable bridges to existing political organizations. Eugene McCarthy was a temporary exception. But even those of moderate or conservative dispositions want to play a political role. And we do not display compelling consistency when we praise student demonstrations in Czechoslovakia to defend that country's liberty and deplore a non-violent demonstration in behalf of Martin Luther King. We live in an age when almost all students talk about student power even when they have but vague notions as to the ends they would seek. The important thing to realize is that they are politically atuned. We ignore this political sensitivity, which at times can be highly sophisticated, at our peril. Their political alertness has gained widespread notice, partly because it is different and partly because the news media have found their political actions fascinating. In turn, this high visibility has lent student disaffection in particular the appearance of something ominous. What has happened on many campuses like San Francisco State is ominous, but I must argue that not all political activity by students is bad. We want students to worry. about the future of democracy. We want them to prepare for leadership in tomorrow's society. We want them to be serious in ways that the panty raids of yesteryear did not convey. Then I think we must take seriously their concerns, which so often find expression in actions essentially political. Once again, I am not prepared to say whether this activity is merely the outward evidence of frustration which could become neurotic or whether it springs from a fresh vitality. I hope that, despite the Jack of civility which occasionally characterizes student demands, it is a manifestation of the process of renewal through which democracy retains its responsiveness. After all, democracy's greatness rests on its willingness to take risks, to be open to new approaches and new ideas. As is so often the case, another generalization only presses us back against another explanation. Why are students so restless? Understandably we would like to find a simple explanation. In the case of a few campus disturbances it may well be that a small group of radical students has succeeded in disrupting normal operations with as little regard to the rest of community as irresponsible elites have displayed throughout history. But it would be folly to dismiss campus unrest as attributable solely to their ingenuity. That would be as fatuous as dismissing the civil rights movement as the product of a few agitators. There must be other reasons. In listing some of these reasons I do not presume to have accounted for all the social flagellators, romantics, or sons

11


of the Enlightenment now in colleges. Six million is too many to cover by any single explanation. First, there are the traditional explanations. Parental control has collapsed. I sometimes wonder how illusory that control has been. Whenever a child leaves home, he is likely to design his life without telephoning daily to check his choices. It is lucky if he even writes once a month! What is important is the style of life to which he has been exposed. Therefore, it is not so much a matter of control as of style; and styles change. When we are candid with ourselves, we must admit that we are less secure now about some of our assumptions and youth's antennae pick up the signals quickly. A second traditional explanation has attributed unrest to an overdose of conformity. Bigness had led to impersonal relations. The important feature of an identity card is its numbers, not its face. "The villain for the new breed is the present prevailing system of organization which substitutes mechanized communication for meaningful dialogue and the false familiaFity of the salesman to this client for deeply personal relationships. "3 Bureaucratic clutter does annoy those who, with the perennial optimism of youth, want immediate solutions. In this sense there has been a revolt against the organization man. Industry has reacted similarly in dismissing the grey flannel suit. Beyond these traditional explanations lie some profoundly important new reasons for campus unrest. Students read into the experience of the last two decades significant lessons. They have grown up in a period which, though spared a major world war, has witnessed baffling smaller wars. There is little doubt that the Vietnam war, to the degree that it has fai led to elicit a clear response from American society, divides them badly. They do not like a draft system which makes them privileged for the moment and then catches them when finally they know what they want to do. Moreover, having become deeply involved in the civil rights movement, they recognize that its moral appeal in the early sixties yielded to the enlargement of the American effort in Vietnam. Their antiwar response is understandable in these terms. But beyond the war itself they see a nuclear standoff, a global imbalance between rich and poor countries, and a fundamental cleavage in world opinion. And they see our earth as a spaceship indifferently rotating through space unable to meet the social problems we face. This unfavorable analysis has路 led a few to characterize society as a disaster which permits any means to provoke change. Like their revolutionary predecessors these few overlook the effect of the means on the ends, however idealistic. Sometimes in our concern for their unwise choice of tactics we forget the causes. But let me insert here that I for one have concluded that we cannot allow our compassion to obscure our understanding of the importance of preserving an orderly process through which to achieve change. The disruption of a campus is no way to solve these issues. We cannot allow confrontation to become the major, permanent extracurricular activity on campus. From this heightened awareness of the complex issues which confront us, students have concluded that we must use our wealth and technology far more effectively than we have if we are to come closer to realizing the dreams in whi<:h we all have taken such pride over the years. Perhaps precisely because they have not known a depression or a world war, they are far less patient than their elders reared in less affluent times and born of greater sadness. Yet, I am sure that we would not want them to know privation so as to achieve skepticism. General Clark of the Air University observed quite astutely that students today are not "hicks." Even though they may at times lack grace and become unco~th - and t?ese tendencies are regrettable, they properly resist conventiOnal patterns because they seek more authenticity in life. I suppose that this is the credibility gap, a phe" Jack F. Padgett, professor of history, Albion College, "The New Breed in Search of a New Moralit y," Liberal Education, October 1968.

nomenon not at all restricted to the political arena. That their analysis is sometimes unmindful of the values in society which have worked well is a reminder that perhaps some of those values have lost their purchase on society, not just that students have a lot more to learn. What worries me most is that we too often respond defensively. Too infrequently do we welcome their questions and criticisms. If there is such a thing as a generation gap, to which we so often attribute campus unrest, it consists of the difference in both pe!spective and response. We ask students to study both the sacred and obnoxious in life and literature, both the orthodox and the unorthodox. Then we are surprised by their challenges. If it were merely an academic game, it might subside into an intellectual challenge rather than become, as it has, a political challenge.

III. Campus unrest is not simply a response to a world which is insecure and uncertain; it relates directly to what is happening on campuses. Political in bearing, worried about personal relationships, questioning the wisdom of elders, today's students carry these concerns to the walks 'neath the elms. Once again, I am speaking not of the radicals alone. Most students, no matter how attentive to the educational demands of the institution, note what is happening in the faculty and administration as well as among their fellow students. As Yogi Berra once remarked, "You can observe a lot by just watching." They see a faculty divided between professional absorption and devotion to a particular academic community. They see universities devoting major efforts to research rather than teaching. They see administrators consulting abroad or consumed with bureaucratic tasks of which they sense little relevance. They hear a series of private languages instead of one language for the community. Their own actions often appear as a rejection of the belief in rational discourse. Finding itself in this climate, the American campus now faces the formidable task of reestablishing a community of interest if it is to continue its primary obligation of being the arena in which we rationally pursue knowledge and seek to understand human experience. To add to the difficulty of this task is the frank recognition that we must redefine the goals of the college in today's world. The system needs some overhaul and most good colleges have begun this process, one which we must undertake periodically. The very choice of the word system suggests one further reason for campus unrest. The "system" puts young people in the groove from the sandbox on, as Jacques Barzun observed. Our organizational ingenuity almost undoes us; for we have erected an elaborate mechanism whereby we try to measure ability : tests, scores, grades, certificates, requirements - an impressive battery of exercises which appears all too impersonal. Even the colleges no longer have names; they are merely numbers which the student places on his College Board application. Students do feel zip-coded along with their hot-press mailing labels. In short, we who work on the campuses of this country cannot dismiss the possibility that we fail in our mission from time to time. We must decide firmly what we shall offer and how we shall relate ourselves to society. IV. To make such a statement is to move beyond an analysis of campus unrest to an answer to campus unrest. In trying to respond I run certain risks, not the least of which is oversimplification. That is never in short supply anywhere. Obviously one easy answer is to toss the problem back to society. Once we as a nation solve our basic problems, then campus unrest will cease. There is truth in so bald a statement; but what do we do in the meanwhile? I think our first task is to gain a perspective on the issues. The student critique reminds us ever so clearly that in the colleges teaching must be our chief concern. Students bring a heightened self-consciousness to the campus; they are seeking values by which to live; they are struggling with emotional disruption; they are exercising responsibility in ways


they have not been asked to before; and they are trying to relate what they are learning to what is going on in society. Freeze-dried knowledge delivered in carefully packaged courses uninspiringly taught is no answer to this search . Colleges must rededicate themselves to an effective transmission of knowledge and understanding . We must design programs which offer the students the opportunity to learn about themselves as individuals faced with making decisions for which they are held responsible as well as individuals preparing for useful careers. In seeking that design we must move openly, for to many students the curriculum has appeared as a kind of manipulated acquiesence in what others have concluded was important. If faculty must assume primary responsibility for determining what is taught, then they must also listen. Students frequently feel that no one ever hears them. Our second task is to end the blackmail situation in which we find ourselves. Blackmail takes many forms. We have had our quota of direct action , of non-negotiable confrontation. Society is no longer impressed by an unreasoning approach. Firmness is the only answer to a flagrant perversion of dissent. But in maintaining order in the academic communities during this period of unrest, we must also be responsive to legitimate grievances. For there is another kind of blackmail that won't work either. To say to those who question our policies that they should leave or be kicked out if they don't like things the way they are is to miss the whole point of campus unrest. I hope that my analysis of the causes, cursory as it was, explains why an authoritarian stance will not solve the problem. That approach will not bring an intellectual tone to the campus. And that is what we need . We must bring into being a community in which we can reflect constructively on the issues which contemporary change thrusts upon us. As I remarked on another ocassion, "That tone requires considerable tolerance upon the part of the public, extraordinary patience on the part of trustees, and complete candor on the part of administrators who serve largely to aid students and faculty in exploring matters of value." No doubt part of the trouble arises from a college's acting to some degree as gadfly to our society. If we can reestablish, as I hope we are doing at Trinity, such a community, then we must accept two other corrollaries. We must avoid total relativism . The late Carl Becker, professor of history at Cornell, phrased this problem most cogently. We must have, he said, an environment which "enables reason to avoid illusions that would otherwise vitiate its conclusions. The fallacy is to suppose that because truth is in some sense relative, it cannot be distinguished from error and that the margin of error cannot be progressively reduced." Now and again, all of us lapse into wholly personal determination of what is right and wrong without regard to either the wisdom of earlier ages or the pertinence of present experience. One reason why relativism has such a hold - that is, aside from our historical inheritance - is that the contemporary crisis on our campuses has become an issue of power. Who is responsible for determining the goals, the values, and the policies of the academic world? I am worried about the politicization of the campus, for the college might well be turned into a "theoretically undifferentiated borde of people more or less continuously engaged in plebiscits on poorly understood questions." (Ford) But I am equally worried about our failure to recognize that this is an issue. I am persuaded that there is no simple answer to this problem even though all of us wish that there were. Nostalgia fm the old days when a president decided, or the faculty set the regulations, or the students hired the professors at Bologna, will not help us gain a clear perspective on the running of a college. I am sure that you share my belief that the objectives of the American college must influence how we administer a campus. I have used the word "community" frequently enough that you may sense that I believe that we must achieve a sense of community if we are to end campus unrest. That will require hard work on everyone's part, but we

must suffer no illusions that such is the task before us. The independent liberal arts college bas the best chance, it seems to me, to offer both programs and the atmosphere essential to the creation of the better society to which we as a people have dedicated ourselves. As Mr. Sol Linowitz, chairman of the executive committee of Xerox Corporation, has remarked. "A society which can send a man to the moon can also bring dignity into the life of every one of its citizens." In this sense black power has brought to the campus a divisiveness that not only reflects America's racial anguish but also calls for an unequivocal answer from our colleges and universities if we are truly persuaded that discrimination and deprivation should not persist. Somehow we all must search - and I think Trinity is - for a community in which knowledge and understanding begin to close the gap between the possible and the actual. From a sense of moral conviction we must so guide our colleges and universities that we recapture that generosity of spirit which permits reason and compassion to prevail. Business, industry, and government need that sensitivity just as directly since our social cohesion depends upon our holding fast to the ideal of a world in which wisdom and a largeness of vision determine the conduct of human affairs. The liberal arts college has no better purpose than that of providing leadership for such a world of peace and justice for all. I began with the meteorological image of a hurricane. Let me close by suggesting that the college campus is in the eye of a hurricane because all the issues to which I have pointed are blowing strongly upon every quarter of our society. We all have a stake in seeing that our democratic way of life meets the whirling challenges of our times. On the campus we know that we must resolve these same issues, that we must live with the extraordinary complexity of our world. The winds will continue to blow for some time, but at least we are reading the storm warnings far more clearly now and I, for one, retain confidence in our national responsiveness and in the strength of our academic institutions.

Black Power and Christian Responsibility By C. Freeman Sleeper Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Abingdon Press 1969 221 pages, $4.50

Reviewed by G. KIRKPATRICK '64

FRANK

One of the most effective and challenging criticisms leveled against much of professorial strata of the academic community today is that it has sold out relevance to student concern for a pottage of bloodless and meaningless scholarship. This criticism is in many ways a paradigm of criticisms raised in many other areas as well, one particular criticism being that the Church has ceased being relevant to contemporary moral problems precisely because its theological "scholarship" is trapped between outdated doctrinal formulations and a recognition that it is no longer possible to simply return to an uncritical culling of Biblical passages in order to find moral answers. In the case of both the academic community and the Church, polarization is rapidly setting in between those who want relevance and immediate meaningfulness at the expense of solid, critical study of the sources, and those who prefer to extol the virtues of objective, unbiased research into eternal verities without regard for the consequences for compelling, modern interests. It is one of the most significant virtues of Dr. Sleeper's new book (the author himself being of both the academic and ecclesiastical community) that it does not succumb to either side in the debate between relevance anq scholarship, but exhibits in a compelling way that the two are not mutually exclusive. In taking as his theme the relation between the Christian 's ethical responsibility and the demand made upon him by the complex of issues summed up by the phrase "black power," Sleeper carefully and successfully balances the need for making clear the grounds and criteria of the Ch ri stian's moral action as it is rooted in the Biblical tradition and the need for showing in some concreteness how moral action can respond to black power. One of the reasons for Sleeper's ability to relate relevance and critical study

14

is his presupposition that no moral action is possible in a vacuum. If it is no longer possible, as Sleeper believes, to find in the Biblical account ready-made solutions to moral problems, then the contemporary Christian is forced not to listen impassively to the Jetter but to engage in a responsible analysis of the context. That is, the Christian must look to the Bible not for a social ethic as such, but for an illumination of the human situation under God in which ethics takes place. The Biblical illumination is multifaceted and its implications are diverse and far-ranging. Sleeper touches so lightly upon some of these facets and implications, that the reader hopes that at a later time and in more detail attention will be given to them. Of particular interest would be the Christian ethicist's understanding of the full relation of sociological analysis to hi work, the ramifications for a God-concept of the notion of God's intentionality, and a fuller treatment of the themes of freedom, love, and the nature of the self. evertheless, the intention of the book was to Jay the foundations for ethical action as it is informed by the Bible and of necessity much had to be treated in summary fashion. The basic theme and ground for ethical action which Sleeper finds in the Biblical account centers on the intention of God's action in and for the world. That intention is "to create those communities where full humanity can be attained" (p. 150). Man relates himself to God's actions by responding to them (and anticipating them). Man becomes fully ethical when he is able to respond in action to the action of others. Working upon the theme of responsibility in relation to God's intention, Sleeper argues that responsible action presupposes faithfulne s or accountability to the agent we are responding to (in this case, God in the covenantal relationship) . What makes responsible action possible is freedom, what judges responsible action is love, and what directs and sustains responsible action is hope. The ~ection on what it means to be responsible is one of the most significant in the book and could easily be the subject for greatly extended treatment. Underlying the treatment of responsibility is a fairly lengthy analysis of Biblical ethics in the Old and New Testament (which is necessarily selective) and a highly informative and provocative section on the Biblical view of the phenom-

enon of power. The latter section is in many ways quite revolutionary for much of our traditional theological evaluation of power. Instead of an injunction against power as such, Sleeper finds that the Bible in fact accepts the existence of power (at many levels and for both good and evil) and is more concerned with illuminating how it can be used and not whether it can be used. If Sleeper is correct, his conclusions about power will have a decisive effect upon those who still feel that the Church as an institution should not exercise for good the power which in fact , as an institution, it has been exercising unwittingly and unintelligently for evil for centuries. The first and last chapters of the book are devoted to a brief study of what black power means. It could be argued, of course, that "black power" is a phrase so complex, and including so many diverse and subtle meanings, that it could never be subject to rapid analysis, especially by a white man. Sleeper is obviously aware of this, but his discussion does manage to get at the basic themes caught up in the phrase without falling into the danger of distortion through over-simplification. The final chapter, which is extremely short, discusses in summary form some possible evaluations of strategies for Christian action in race relations, based upon the foundations laid in the earlier part of the book. Following his own injunction against ready-made or how-to-do-it solutions, Sleeper does not set forth any detailed programs. In one sense this is disappointing because all of us would be happier if we could painlessly find a plan of action in race relations which could be followed mindlessly. But consistent with hi princi11les, Sleeper reminds us by his silence on specific program that Christian ethics involves responsible and intelligent action on the part of every member of the community. Incidentally, it should be noted that Sleeper includes an excellent and comprehensive bibliography, valuable not only as a guide to the sources of Sleeper's own thought, but also to be u ed by churches and other groups as they come to grips with the problems set forth in the book.

SPORTS SCENE By R. MALCOLM SALTER Director, News Bureau

The winter sports season, while a cold one for most varsity and freshman teams, ended on a warm note with two dinners. One was a historic first for the Hockey Club which held a banquet for the Trinity Hockey Association, sponsors of the sport. Members of the Springfield Kings of the American Hockey League were on hand to help the Trio Club celebrate an 8-3-1 season, its second best since the sport was reactivated in this decade. The Albert C. Williams Memorial Hockey Cup went to Sheldon Crosby, a sophomore goalie from McClean, Va ., and a new presentation, the "Gold Stick" award, we nt to senior center Henry Barkhausen of Lake Forest, Ill., who led the skaters in total point production with 28, on 16 goals and 12 assists. Special recognition went to the Tripod for its coverage of the sport, and senior Peter Chick and his wife were given a gift for their service as "chaperones" for the club. The dinner bad been organized by Frederick MacColl '54, of the development office, who was the "man behind the scenes" for the club all year and through his efforts a specially designed tie-clasp was presented to each player. William "Skip" Hastings '69 of Greenwich, turned out to be a most entertaining toastmaster. ::~

fencing tea m from 1963 to 1965, and given by his classmates of 1965, was presented to junior Joel Greenspan of Ottawa, Ill., for "enthusiasm and sportsmanlike conduct and for capturing the spirit of the art of fencing." Marshall Garrison, a sophomore from Hartford received the Marsh Frederick Chase Award for "contributions to the cause of fencing." Special tribute was paid to Gerald 0 . Pring, an ardent promoter of fencing in Hartford and the former maitre of the British Fencing Federation, who gave the Trinity team a big boost when he volunteered to coach the squad this season. A total of one blanket, five gold awards, 33 varsity letters and 28 freshman numer-

* * .,.

It was no surprise that at the traditional winter sports dinner held at the College, the Arthur Wadlund "Outstanding Basketball Player" award went to Joe Pantalone of New Canaan. The 6'6" forward, sometimes center, made almost as many trips to the head table to pick up honors as he did to the foul line during the season. Besides his MVP trophy, Pantalone, for his first year in a Trinity varsity uniform , picked up two Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference weekly first team selections, a varsity "T" and Trinity records for total points scored in one season (541) and the highest season scoring average (25.8). The modest "Hawk," as he is known to teammates and Bantam fans, is a transfer student from the University of Connecticut. He has one season left to play for Trinity and, if it is anything like the one just cdnpleted, he could become the fourth I ,000 point man in Trinity basketball history and the first to reach that milestone in two seasons. In contrast to the towering Pantalone, little 5'8:' Howie Greenblatt, sophomore guard from H artford, received the

Coach's Foul Shooting Trophy with a 75.3% accuracy. Peter Wiles, a junior from New London, received the Newton C. Brainard Trophy for winning the college squash championship and the man he defeated in the finals, sophomore Spencer Knapp of New Canaan, received the John A . Mason "Most Improved Playe r Award." Douglas A. Watts, a senior freestyler from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was recipient of the John Slowik "Outstanding Swimmer Award," a nd the Bob Slaughter "Most Improved Swimmer Awa rd" went to junior breaststroker William Thompson of West H ave n. A new award, named for the late Thomas H. Taylor, co-captain of the

als were presented at the annual banquet. Mike Beautyman, a senior from Pittsfield, received the "Blanket Award" symbolic of eight letters earned over three varsity sports. Gold awards for three letters in one sport went to Peter Clark of Brookfield Center . . . to outgoing captain John Godfrey of Hartford in basketball ... to Douglas Watts of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Michael Wright of Needham, Mass. , in swimming . . . Mike Beautyman in squash.

SPRING

OUTLOOK Track New head track coach Terry Herr took his squad south during the spring recess. East Carolina University (Greenville) and Davidson University hosted the Bantams for a 10-day workout. The team had helped defray transportation costs by selling basketball programs and doing extra jobs around the campus. Herr is the fourth head Trinity track coach in 44 years. Karl Kurth held the job for 16 years, Stuart Parks had it fo.r three years including one with Fred Booth, and Ray Oosting was head coach for 24 years. Outlook: The team should improve on last year's 2-5 record. Fred Vyn is captain.

1969 team has more depth overall and five returning lettermen. Outlook: The netmen will have trouble with early opponents such as Amherst and Army, which went to warmer climates before the season, but thereafter the Dathmen should post a winning record. Michael Beautyman is captain. Baseball Head coach Robie Shults spent the pre-season working his squad in the Memorial Field House. Six returning lettermen, three in the infield and three on the mound give the team a strong nucleus. An untested outfield is the question mark. Outlook: As always, pitching is the key to any successful collegiate season and Trinity has the mound potential. It could be a good year. Miles King is captain. Crew While snow covered the Connecticut countryside crew coach Norm Graf supervised the launching of shells into the chilly Connecticut River and the workouts of some 55 enthusiasts, one of the largest number of rowers in Trio's history. A year ago, Trinity freshman and JV boats won the New England Championship, and the varsity boat missed by a foot. Trinity was third overall in the national small college championship and first among New England crews there. Outlook: Despite the brilliant 1968 record the Bantam oarsmen are acting like a number two car- renting agency . . . "They are trying harder." They are aiming at some big stars (Rusty Callow, Dad Vail and possibly even Henley) , and don't be surprised if a meteor shower is the result. John DeLong and Bill Melcher are the varsity co-captains.

Lacrosse Joe Wilson, who is filling in as head lacrosse coach for Chet McPhee while the latter completes work on a Ph.D. at Ohio State, took his team to the Baltimore area for a week of pre-season workouts. Outlook: The sophomore dominated squad is expected to need a year of seasoning before the Bantams come into their own. Nathaniel Prentice and William Wight are co-captains. Golf Perennial part-time coach Sam Massie, who has helped Trinity for a number of years, will take over the golf team for a second consecutive season. Trinity has three veterans returning from a squad that lost 10 matches a year ago but won the Connecticut Collegiate Cham pionship. Outlook: Some early season hooks and slices and rough going against those opponents that went south before the season but overall a better year for Trin. Robert Johnson is captain. Tennis Roy Dath enters his 17th season as tennis coach with a record of 92-37. This squad will miss Sandy Tilney but the

Trinity's newest athletic trophy, named in memory of Thomas H. Taylor, co-captain of th e fencing team from 1963 to 1965, is displayed by athletic director Karl Kurth and the first recipient of th e award, for "capturing the spirit of th e art of fencing," Joel Greenspan '70.

Edwin J. Donnelly '08 The passing of Edwin J. Donnelly at the age of 83 brought heartfelt tributes from Hartford columnists Bill Lee of the Courant and Art McGinley of the Times. The captain of the 1907 football team, which lost only to Army and Amherst, was lauded for his performance on the field and his devotion to the sport as a coach and official after graduation, and for his many contributions to Hartford. McGinley wrote that after his performance as a freshman, Donnelly was wooed by major colleges in the east, but the columnist recalled that Donnelly told him on many occasions "I never would have left Trinity. I had a great affection for the school and then there was the obligation for the great solicitude the college authorities had shown me when I was injured. I was sent to the Heublein Hotel, given the best of care, and Dr. Flavel Luther, Trinity president, and Mrs. Luther, visited me there several times." And wrote Lee: "This was a man whose usefulness did not stop when he left the field of athletics behind. He was a valued citizen of Hartford. His loss is quite irreparable as it was to Trinity's football fortunes when he graduated in the Class of 1908." Hawaii Going Pro Honolulu Mayor Frank Fasi, Trinity '42, bas announced a professional football team for Hawaii and said he expects the team to enter the Continental FootbaiJ League next fall. Fasi was a standout for Trinity in 1939, 1940 and 1941, when the Bantams won 16, lost three and tied one. In 1940, and again in 1941, the Jessemen won six straight before losing to Wesleyan. Coincidentally it was Wesleyan's aerial bombardment that caught Trinity and Fasi offguard in 1941 just a few weeks before Pearl Harbor. Starting Line-up Trustee Chairman Lyman Brainerd, '30, in presenting President Lockwood '48 as the main speaker to the annual Business, Industry and Government dinner at the College, said he would not dwell on an introduction, recalling that he once mentioned on another occasion that Dr. Lockwood played football while at Trinity and he was a tight end. "He denied both counts," said Mr. Brainerd. President Lockwood had played tackle on offense and middle guard on defense.

CAMPUS The new administrative structure which became effective with the start of the new term lists four senior officers directly responsible to the President. It also creates three new deanships to oversee all the programs and activities which directly affect the student's total educational experience and life at the liberal arts institution . Another major innovation in the changes is the elimination of the office of dean of students by bringing the functions of this office into a more direct relation with the academic administration of the College. The new structure is designed to relate all aspects of the educational program, academic progress and the quality of residential life, which directly affect the student, in a coordinated way under one senior officer of the College, the dean. The creation of an external affairs office recognizes the increasing number of relationships with various publics in the community of which the College is a part. The four senior officers who will work directly with the President are: the dean of the faculty, Robert W. F uiJer; the treasurer, J. Kenneth Robertson; the director of external affairs, a new post, Th omas A. Smith, who has been serving as associate dean of the faculty; and the director of development, a post which at present has not been filled. Under Dean Fuller, who is responsible for the academic programs of the College, will come three new associate deans. Appointed to these new positions are Dr. Freeman Sleeper, dean of academic affairs; Robbins Winslow, dean of educational services and Dr. Roy H eath, dea n of community life. It was also announced that Dr. Arthur H . Hughes, vice president eme ritus and professor and co-chairman of the modern languages department, who has served the College in numerous capacities including twice as its acting president, will become a

NOTES

special advisor to the President while continuing his teaching in modern languages. The office of external affairs will bring into one coordinated operation, the College's growing relationship with Hartford, the state and federal agencies, alumni affairs and public information. The latter is a new title for what had previously been called college r"elations and will be headed by L. Barton Wilson, formerly of the college relations office. Smith, a native of Hartford and a 1950 graduate of Trinity, joined the College administration in 1953 as an admissions officer. He was registrar and assistant to the dean for eight years and since 1966 has been associate dean of the College which included direction of the graduate and summer studies program. He holds a masters degree from Columbia University and taught English at Dean Junior College before joining the Trinity administration. During World War II he served as an American Field Service Volunteer with the British VIII Army in Africa and later with the U.S. Army Medical Corps in Europe. A resident of West Hartford, he served on the Board of Education for four years and was a member of the West Hartford McCarthy Delegation to the 1968 State Democratic Convention. He is secretarytreasurer of the Connecticut Conference of Independent Colleges and is a trustee of the Connecticut Educational Television Corporation. As associate dean for academic affairs, Dr. Sleeper will work with Dean Fuller on the instructional, graduate and summer programs and the details of academic planning. A native of ew Haven, Dr. Sleeper joined the Trinity faculty in 1961. He was graduated from Colby College, cum laude, in 1954, received a B.D. degree from Yale Divinity School, magna cum laude and received a Ph.D. in religion from Vander-

A resident of Hartford, he formerly lived in Cromwell where he was a member of the Democratic Town Committee and the Board of Education. As associate dean of educational services, Winslow will coordinate all the activities which directly affect students in filling their educational objectives including admissions, financial aid, counselling, registration and career advisement. Winslow, who has served as assistant director of development since 1966, was graduated from Trinity in 1957 with honors in history and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Following graduation he entered the service where he was a history and mathematics instructor at tbe Army Education Center at Fort Bragg. He received an S.T. B. degree from The Episcopal Theological School, Cambridge and served for three years as curate at St. John's Episcopal Church, Passaic, N.J., where he organized a neighborhood center and for a year was assistant rector at All Saints Episcopal Church, Glen Rock, New Jersey.

dents. In 1965 he was appointed Professor of Psychology and in 1966 director of student affairs. He received his B.A. from Princeton University in 1939, an M.A. in 1947 and a Ph.D. in 1952 from the University of Pennsylvania. From 1939-1941, he was a Research Fellow at the Vineland Training School. In 1942 he was a U.S. Army Personnel Consultant, acting as a clinical psychologist. From 1950-1954 he was instructor in psychology at Princeton and the following year associate professor of psychology at Knox College. From 19561963 he was director of the University Counseling Center of the University of Pittsburgh. In 1963-64 he was visiting professor of Psychology at Amherst College. In 1960 Heath received a Certificate for Outstanding Research. He is the author of The Reasonable Adventurer, a study of the development of 36 undergraduates at Princeton, published by the University of Pittsburgh Press in 1964. He has published in professional journals. The reorganization also indicated the Librarian, Donald B. Engley, and the College Chaplain, Alan Tull, would be responsible directly to the President while serving other departments. Dr. Andrew Turnbull, writer, teacher and author of the best selling biographies of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe, is visiting professor of English this semester.

After serving on the faculty of M .I.T. during the 1950's, Turnbull devoted fulltime to writing. His first book, the highly praised biography of F. Scott Fitzgerald, appeared in 1962. Turnbull said he first became interested in Fitzgerald when he was a boy of 11 and the novelist, then 36, and his daughter rented a house from the Turnbulls in Maryland in 1932. The biography of Fitzgerald was hailed by critics as a "beautiful, intimate, personal and deeply moving story." A year later, Turnbull published Fitzgerald's letter 路and, in February 1968, his biography of Thomas Wolfe. He has published a number of articles for The New Yorker on Fitzgerald which preceded publication of his book. He has also published in Harper's, Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, and the New York Times Book Review section. After completing the biography on Wolfe, Turnbull returned to the classroom last year. He was a Fulbright Lecturer at the University of Bordeaux. He was graduated from Princeton in 1942 and received an M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard. He will conduct two seminars, one on Fitzgerald, Wolfe and Hemingway, and another on critics Mencken , Wilson and Neibuhr.

Seniors Peter T. Grossi Jr. of Wapping, Conn., and Stephen R. Lundeen of Chicago, have been named recipients of Woodrow Wilson Fellowships. The list of honorable mentions included Carl E. Luty, also of Wapping, and Richard F. Patterson Jr. of Huntington, W. Va. Grossi has also been awarded a Danforth Fellowship. The Registrar's Office reported a record-breaking 460 students on the Dean's List for the first semester: 171 seniors, including two fifth-year engineering students; 139 juniors; 79 sophomores; and 71 freshmen. Under a grant from the United Aircraft Corporation, the College will offer a series of two-week summer laboratories in physics for Greater Hartford high school students. The program will be under the direction of Dr. Bradley W. Perry, assistant professor of physics.

Trinity has become the 1 I th member of the Ten College Exchange Program, an agreement for institutional exchange of students on a voluntary basis with Amherst, Bowdoin, Connecticut College for Women, Dartmouth, Mount Holyoke, Smith, Vassar, Wesleyan, Wheaton and Williams. Under the Program, there need not be a direct exchange between institutions. A student may apply to study for a semester, or preferably for a year, at any of the other colleges. Applications are considered by the host institution on a space availability basis. A student will pay tuition and fees charged by the host college for his period of study there. Credits will be transferred to the college to which the student is a matriculant. Dr. Robert W. Fuller, dean of the faculty, has been appointed by the Ameri_s:an Association for the Advancement of Science to its Commission on Science Education. The 14-member Commission, primarily with funds provided by the National Science Foundation, is responsible for planning and overseeing most of the work in science education of the Association, the nation's largest private organization dedicated to the advancement of all the sciences. The Commission also functions as an adviser to the NSF, recommends projects for funding and conducts inquiries as requested by the NSF. Dr. Fuller has been named to the Commission's committees on "Science and Society" and another studying "The Role of Science in the Liberal Education." Another assignment for Dr. Fuller came from the world's largest independent contract research organization which tapped him to undertake a pioneering educational fact-finding mission to South America during March. Ba ttelle Memorial Institute, which has a record of research accomplishments in some 75 nations and an international reputation for its experience in science, technology and economics, sent the Dean to

South America to explore the possibility of involving the Institute in educational projects on that continent. Dr. Fuller spent two and a half weeks talking with leaders in government, industry and education in two cities selected by the Institute to begin exploration for future educational programs in which Battelle could play a part. An independent organization with major research complexes in Geneva, Frankfurt, Seattle and Columbus, Ohio, Battelle has often been described as a "bridge between science and industry." Battelle laboratories have served the research needs of industry and governments, including such public agencies as the United Nations, EURATOM and the European Economic Community. Neither Battelle nor Dr. Fuller are strangers to each other. He was a research scientist for the Battelle Memorial Research Institute in Seattle before coming to Trinity. At his first stop in Lima, Dr. Fuller met with Dr. Frank Savage of the Institute of International Education and, in Santiago, one of his visits included talks with Sergio Gutierrez Olivos, former ambassador to the U .S. who Dr. Fuller met when the two were fellows at the Center for Advanced Studies at Wesleyan in 1966-67. At the time, Olivos was working on a book on the Alliance for Progress, and Fuller was working as co-author of a book, Mathematics for Classical and Quantum Physics, which will be published this spring. Dr. Fuller also talked with leaders of CORFO, the planning agency for the Chilean government and with administrators of Petrobas, the nationally-owned petroleum organization.

Editor's note: The Hartford Times recently ran a short article entitled "People Bark at Dog Bills." "Miss Frances McCook is still young enough to worry about lost dogs and how much it costs to get them back. "She went to a legislative bearing on "dog Bills" to protest an increase in the daily rate charged by dog wardens for impounded dogs. "Miss McCook said the increase from $2 to $5 a day would be a hardship to owners. She added it is impossible to see dogs at a convenient time at the pound. Once she was told the warden would be away over the weekend and no one was there to take over. "She is still looking for Plucky Girl, missing from her home at 396 Main St."

As a bench mark of sorts, Your Secretary extends thanks for your many Christmas messages and the words of cheer when he was incarcerated in the hospital in November. Can you imagine a healthy, nonâ&#x20AC;˘smoker having a tumor on his lung? Well this fellow made it with ease and, thanks to a skilled surgeon, he is as good as new. Sam Berkman is having a ball as dean emeritus in residence of the Hartt College of Music at the University of Hartford. He finds that he can be active and contribute to his "project" without having to assume arduous official responsibilities. More fame has descended upon Shorty Caulfield. Since removing to Old Lyme, Connecticut, some ten years ago, he has been engaged in an extensive search for historical documents relating to the town's history, as far back as 1671. In recognition of his many significant discoveries, he joined the ranks of the town's outstanding citizens last October by winning the annual "Man of the Year" award. Congratulations, Shorty! Nort Ives reports that he, too, has paid a visit to the hospital where he was entertained with a sympathectomy operation. Now he is in Florida and expects to play some golf a Ia cart. The necrology section of this Alumni Magazine carries a notice of the sudden passing of Jake Jennings last September. We will ever cherish the memory of our friendship with this quiet, solid lad who was loved and esteemed by a host of friends. He will be sorely missed. When Bob O'Connor retired from O'Connor and Kilham in 1967, he thought he would have nothing to do. However, as the Architect Member of the New York City Art Commission he finds himself tied down for a couple of weeks each month. In addition he serves on the Construction Advisory Committee of the New York City Board of Education, and is a Sub-Committee Chairman on the Natural Environment Committee of the New York Chapter, A.l.A., where "the pace is horrendous." At Christmas, the O'Connors visited with their older son in Houston, and now they are about to embark on a trip to the hill towns of Italy. Another good letter has arrived from Rod Pierce. With two sons in the east and two daughters in California, the Pierces

The College has received $100,000 to establish a lectureship in religion to honor the late Reverend Ellsworth Morton Tracy who was graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1900. The new post has been made possible by a gift from the estate of his widow, Bertha Bristol Tracy. A native of Waterbury, Rev. Tracy attended General Theological Seminary after graduating from Trinity. He received a masters degree from Trinity in 1903. Ordained an Episcopal priest, he served parishes in Ogdensburg, N.Y., and Maplewood, N.J., before becoming rector of Trinity Church in Thomaston, Conn., from 1909 until his death in 1913.


have become good travelers. Last summer, for example, they made their eighth motor trip to the west coast. Herb Spencer came out of hibernation and journeyed to Hartford for the Amherst game. Soon thereafter we had a nice note from him. He- and we- regret that difficulty with his eyes prevents him from driving up from Waterford except on red-letter occasions, which is our misfortune. That splendid correspondent Jack Townsend, appreciating the Secretary's interest in music, writes that he has just learned that the tune of Yale's "Whiffenpoof Song" had its genesis among French sailors in Brittany. Jack had the pleasure of knowing the author of the words, as sung by the "Poofs." We hope that all of you are responding to Frank Lambert's persuasive Alumni Fund appeal of last fall. Trinity needs your support more than ever, and we of Sixteen have always been in the forefront of these campaigns.

Weary Creamer bas been performing research for a book on the Alps. This will be an effort to show the tremendous influence the hard rock miner, and others, have had upon the civilization of Western Europe and, in fact, the world. It will be an historic narrative dealing with the drilling of the great alpine tunnels, and the building of the incredible passes. He bas published a pamphlet on the MontBlanc tunnel, and last summer Mrs. Creamer and Weary drove over much of the area. He has been asked to act as chairman of a committee to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Connecticut State Highway Department in 1970. "Dud" Stark, retired bishop of Rochester, is living in York Harbor, Maine. He is far from inactive. During his free time, be helps northern New England bishops in their confirmations. He has confirmed over 600 in the past few years. With Mary, his wife, he is active in civic organizations. He organizes recreation for his 13 grandchildren on their visits to the young folk.

Ed Armstrong has given to the Trinity College Library 12 beautifully framed A. B. Frost sporting prints in memory of his brother, Hurlburt. They are on permanent display on the walls outside the Izaak Walton Room. These prints originally appeared in portfolio form early in this century. Don Engley reports that these prints are路 very scarce and that the gift is "handsome an d meaningful." Sam Nirenstein reports the completion of his new country home in Pawling, New York, on land adjoining that of his old friend, Governor Thomas E. Dewey. Ham Barber has returned to his winter home in Bellair Beach, Fla.

Vine Potter's son Robert had a Doctorate of Religious Education conferred upon him at the commencement exercises of the Hartford Seminary Foundation last year. He is now associate minister of the Asylum Avenue Congregational Church and associate professor of sociology at the University of Hartford. Vine and his wife Dr. Mary took another of their annual trips to Europe, visiting Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland and Holland, flying direct from there to Houston , Texas where they reside. Your Secretary and his wife returned to their home outside of Tallahassee, Florida, in mid-October after spending a couple of months visiting friends in New York and New England. Irv Partridge is chairmen of the committee on arrangements for our 50th Reunion which will be held on May 30, 31 and June 1.

The Bob Hartt's have moved from La J oil a to 3963 Laguna Blanca Drive, Santa Barbara, Calif. 93105. I hope they haven't been affected by the recent oil leak off the Santa Barbara coast. I wonder if Bob was forced to abandon his macadamia trees at La Jolla. Maurice Jaffer still travels from Sarasota, Fla. to Hartford in the summer and vice versa in the winter. That's what I call the good life. My spouse, Marye, plays the J?iano for the Y.M.C.A. calisthenics classes here in Hartford. Last November she completed 20 years of service and was honored with a testimonial banquet given by the Y members who very generously presented her with several gifts. Your Secretary observed the festivities a Ia Prince Philip Consort and felt about as unimportant as the good prince on such occasions. Sereno Gammell retired in January after 45 years of illustrious service with Th e Hartford Times . He was assistant

city editor from 1927-36. He then spent five years as a political reporter for the Connecticut scene. He was news director, commentator and panel moderator for the Times radio station, WTHT 194154. He wound up his career as an editorial writer. Sereno has long been active in civic affairs. He is secretary of the board of trustees of the Open Hearth, a local charitable institution, and a former treasurer of the Laurel Club, a group of Connecticut political writers. Sereno se rved with the U.S .. Navy during World War路 I and became a member of Connecticut's first statewide rationing board during World War II. Sereno is a descendant of the fifth governor of Connecticut, John Webster, and one of Hartford's founders . He is married to the former Una King.

Mike Daly is acting as chairman. Art Conrad left for Clearwater, Fla., on January 28. He is feeling much better and says that he will be back in Hartford in time for the reunion. "Doc" Mulford reports that he is still selling Buicks in Bridgton, N .1 . He has two children, George and Caroline. George is married to Christine Atwood whose father is Frank Atwood, the wellknown TV personality at WTIC, Hartford. " Doc" is completing a one-year term as president of the Bridgton Rotary Club. Our sympathies go to the family of Stan Kennedy who passed away on November 5. Your Secretary is now retired after 40 years of teaching math at public and private schools. Keeping active, however, as legislative chairman of the Connecticut Retired Teachers' Association and state director of the National Retired Teachers' Association.

Charles "Chuck" Morris retired from teaching English at Milton Academy in June 1968. During his career at Milton he participated in many activities that ranged from serving as chairman of the English Department to promoting square dances; contributing papers to many academic publications; coaching football, baseball and other sports at times, to writing articles about flowers and how to grow them. His interests and hobbies are varied and his abi lities are great. After Trinity, Chuck studied at the University of Chicago, earning the PHB degree. After graduate work at Harvard University, he returned to his old school, Howe Military Academy, to teach English. In September of 1931, he came east

25


to Milton, and has remai ned in this lovely New England town, giving continuous and honorable service to its ivied school. The "Chuck" Morris's have 2 d aughters: Christina, Mrs. C. William Helm (and children) Jive in Evanston, Illinois ; and Sarah, Mrs. Alan J . Gayer,. whose husband, a former Rhodes Scholar and now a fellow at Yale University, and teaches at the H amden High School. They live in New Haveh. Wh at with being busy with The New England Histo ric and Geneological Society, The Garden Club of Milton, The Southern Vermont Art Center, The Harvard Club, with his flowers- and in between visiti ng his daughters and families in Illinois and Connecticut- I don't see how Charles "Chuck" Morris can rust. The class was grieved to learn of the death of one of its illustrious members, Alfred L. Peiker, who passed away on February 5, 1969, at his home in }!artford. The class extends its sympath y to his wife. Apologies to George Malcolm-Smith for our mistake of accepting someone's word that the "Duke" was semi-retired and putting it in our class noteS. George is not retired, is still with the Travelers. The only change is the location of his office. Edward LeWinn, fo r reasons of health, has had to retire from the practice of internal medicine and as chief at the. Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. He doe maintain his connection with the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential where he bas been director of the Institute for Clinical Investigation .

THE TIME HAS COME AS YOU KNOW WELL FOR MY ANNUAL AITEMPT AT DOGGEREL .

It seems more difficult every year To put this gem together From fellow classmates I just don't hear Not even in balmy weather.

Oh yeah, there was a Jetter From our old pal Howie Manierre And a check to make our Class Fund better He's good for once a year. To you other guys, I make my plea For news and dues and such It takes but a minute to write to me And it's appreciated, oh, so much! Now surely things have changed a bit From forty odd years ago But that's no reason to throw a fit Or be filled with sadness and woe. Coli Trin Sane is vibrant and living More so when we were there The feminine touch yo u'll find will be giving A bold brass beat to the air. For when the night becomes the dam And everytHing's peaceful and calm The gals will be sleeping in their dorm And why should we give a darn? Let's imagine the games of "one-on-one" In the new gym when it's completed That should be a lot of fun After all, the gym will be heated. And how about Field Hockey? Or a pass-receiving end? The Tracks will allow a gal jockey There seems no end to the trend. So leave us old ters be calm, serene Co-education is here to stay D on't make a fuss or make a scene Let it run its blissful way. Await the results of a reasonable test Both in Hartford and Poughkeepsie Where thirty-odd men of Trinity's best Are having their own "Critique-See." And when it's time to evaluate Let's hope the results are plus That gains may more than compensate What may seem lpsses to us.

The winter hiatus has settled down over the snow covered hills of New Hampshire and has apparently shut off your correspondent's huge network of news gatherers. Oh well, no news is good news. Tom Sisbower has changed his address in West Hartford to # 1 Pheasant Hill Drive. George Dickerson has made a longer move by moving to Unionville Conn. Pearce Alexander reports a move from San Diego to 2775 Inverness Drive, La Jolla, Calif. Our sympathies go to the family of Walter Barry Jennings who died on May 11, 1968. Barry transferred to Trinity from Drake University. My able and very busy predecessor Bob Lau was the literary luminary of the season. Bob keeps adding to his laurels and chores by being installed as president of the Ewing Township Democratic Club. He is flexing his muscles and aiming his political guns at the opposing 100-yearold dynasty. Not content with this responsibility, Bob has been re-elected secretary-treasurer of the Mercer County

Library Commission. (These various political sub divisions do confuse me, Bob.) Bob's chatty note also speaks of a letter from "Mack" Lane and constant contact with Bob Daut '34. Your Secretary has switched assignments at the North-Atlantic Service Center. He is now the Chief of the Recruitment Section and must somehow before January 1970 find two or three thousand eager workers. Vernon Brown is still with the Theo. S.

The response to my recent appeal for news was excellent, and now we have something to read about our class. If those who didn't reply will send in their cards to John Mason, 6r contact me, we will continue to have news in future issues. Jim Carroll is an admiralty attorney for the Law Department of the City of New York, a captain in the Naval Reserve and Executive Officer of Law Co. 3-7, with the help of Captain Carl Lundin, USN, Class of 1938. He hopes to be a commanding officer thi.s Summer. AI Dexter has moved back to Connecticut after 5 years in Rochester, New York with Bausch & Lomb, Inc. He is living temporarily in East Haddam. Apparently he had too much salt water in his veins and the first thing he did on getting back was to buy a boat and is now impatiently waiting for Spring. Bob Dunne called nie on the telephone. He is still in the insurance business in Granby, Connecticut, and his agency represents the Travelers. Your Secretary is now with that company since the merger with the Phoenix in 1966. Bob's family is pretty well grown up and he has one boy going the educational route. Bill Gilfillan, I regret to report, died on August I 0, 1968, at East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. You will find additional news about Bill in the necrology section of this issue. Wallace Houston, after having been a salesman for 25 years, at age 50, entered the Episcopal priesthood. He is now in his sixth year and likes it very much, serving as assistant rector in a Pennsylvania Parish of 2400 souls. He became a grandfather last year. Dolph Hoehling is working on a documentary of the last seven hours of the carrier USS Lexington in the Battle of the Coral Sea. He wonders if any Trinity men were on board? He has also been working on a tome about the battle of Vicksburg in the Civil War, from the human interest standpoint of the defenders. He has visited Europe twice recently while working on a 25th anniversary book on Patton's Third Army. What a busy man you are Dolph. (Editors Note: Mr. Hoehling's newest book - The Jeannette Expedition , An Ill-fated Journey to the Arctic - is reviewed in this issue.) Jake Hurewitz will have published this month a book entitled, Middle East Politics: The Military Dimension. He organ-

28

ized and directed a c.onference on "Soviet-American Rivalry in the Middle East" for the Academy of Political Science at Columbia University last December. This will be published as a paperback by Praeger in March. Hank Littell is in the Foreign Service, now in Hong Kong as political officer with the Counsel General. He has just been transferred from political adviser to the U.S. Commanding General, U.S. Forces Japan in Tokyo. His older son, a first lieutenant in the Air Fo~ce in Fort Lee, Virginia, is married and recently made Hank a grandfather. His younger son is in his sophomore year at the University of Colorado. Last September he visited Larry Sinclair in Honolulu. Stew Ogilvy continues to work hard for his Alma Mater, and is now a member of the Endowment Committee. Undoubtedly, many of the class can benefit taxwise by revising their estate plans to the benefit of Trinity. Van Reynolds writes that his older daughter was graduated from Skidmore College last June. My daughter graduates from there this June, and has just returned from spending the month of January at Colgate, which is part of the coeducational movement sweeping the country, including Trinity. Van has triplets and the boys are sophomores at Boston College and St. Anselm's College, and his daughter is in her second year at Endicott Junior College. He was a vice president of Lehn & Fink Products Corp., and when that company was merged into Sterling Drug, Inc., he was made president of a division, Gray Laboratories International. Frazier Scott regrets that he has no news and says that he has been at the same old stand for the past 10 years. That must keep him quite busy as general counsel for Olin Mathieson Chemical Corporation. Dr. Sal Piacente has been promoted to visiting physician in medicine at St. Francis Hospital, Hartford. He is also a fellow of the American College of Physicians. Bert Scull writes that nothing has changed with him and he has seen no one for years. He can remedy that by coming to our 35th reunion in 1971. Larry Sinclair, after having been recalled to active duty with the Navy, is back in business in Honolulu as a naval architect, presently working on R & D of hydrodynics in high-speed sea-going small craft, project proposals in association with Dillingham Corporation, who have unusual contracts with the Navy. His oldest of four daughters is married and living on the mainland and his 5 year old son is training for football at Trio. Vin Trigg's son Michael is a sophomore at Trinity and was recently elected as city editor of the Tripod. He is a member of the Speakers' Bureau, a member of the Atheneum and a participator in Hillel Society. I have seen quite a bit of the Win Vierings, having bowled with them in a mixed bowling league. Win is purchasing agent for the Torrington Company, Torrington, Con.necticut, where he has been since he was graduated. His three sons have all completed their education, one is married. Win and wife have been able to relax, and have been traveling extensively to Europe and other points in the United States. Jack Williams is associate director of

World Education Markets, Inc., marketing consultants to the education industry. His main activity, is to find overseas markets for manufacturers of educational material and equipment. He travels extensively, mainly to Africa and Middle East. His two eldest daughters married Belgians and have produced two grandchildren. He has three other children ages 20, 16 and 12. Bob McKee writes from Los Angeles that he is still running his own industrial real estate firm. He visited Trinity last November at Homecoming and was disappointed to find only one member of '36- Stew Ogilvy.

Joel Brooke is working for his Ph.D. in sociology at Columbia and is teaching freshmen at N.Y.U. and reports he loves it. Joel retired some time ago as an associate with the Elmer Roper Association. In pursuit of his doctorate, he found it necessary to go to Paris last year to contact his advisor and is planning to go to Spain this spring. He can't use that "advisor" excuse twice. Joel's oldest boy is a junior at Trinity. Mike Scenti, who works as division engineer in the Engineering Department of Hartford, met Carl Lindell last year on a walking tour in Jacksonville, Florida, among a crowd of some 20,000 people. Mike, who seems to be very interested in pension plans these days, indicates there is some "hang-up" because he has one youngster in college now and another due to go shortly. Speaking abou~ possible retirements, Bill Taylor, who has operated a string of beauty parlors from New Haven to New Britain since 1938, indicates that independent operators like himself hear about others who plan to retire hut "it ain't that easy for us." Bill has five children, three of whom are now married. Howie Edstrom, who has recovered nicely after a serious illness, is now in the real estate and insurance business. Howie has two boys in college; one in Maine and the other at Quinnipiac. Bruce Onderdonk's son, Andrew Bruce, is engaged to Miss Juliet A. Wherry of Danville, Til. Jim Broughel passes on this bit of philosophy: "The problems with kids and governments today are problems of values, not of established rules." I think the younger generation is giving Jim the "business." Jim has one daughter who is married and lives in Washington, D.C.: the second will graduate from Vassar this June; the third is at N.Y.U. His boy is at Loomis School and is trying for Harvard. Jim further reports he has no sympathy with Timothy O'Leary and be doesn't "take trips." Bob Gagnon, who used to take far-off trips often (but not the O'Leary type) stays closer to home these days and reports nothing new at all. Bob is still supervisor of quality engineering at Pratt and Whitney Aircraft. Your Secretary knows he speaks for all of '37 in expressing condolences to Bern Budd Jr. on the death of his father, a member of the Class of '08 and a trustee, emeritus, of the College.

Art has been a busy Cantor all through those years, and along with his church duties he has been a member of the faculty of Hartt School of Music of the University of Hartford. We are about to report the change in jobs of two classmates. It is somewhat unusual to find that we "fifty-year olds" branched out into new ventures. However, Ruf Wroth is presently business development officer of Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam, Connecticut. Your Secretary, after 20-odd years in a Hartford bank, elected to move to the State National Bank in Bridgeport. Dr. Gene D 'Angelo has been elected a director of the Citizens National Bank of Southington, Conn. Sam Benjamin reports he is a grandfather.

The curre nt year's most newsworthy Trinity alum nus was Captain Adrian K. Lane, whose narrow escape from death by shipwreck was on the front page of most east coast newspapers in Janu ary. Doc was commander of the Sea Surveyor, a 290-ton converted merchant ship which was operated as a floating marine laboratory by the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics. On January 5, the ship left Groton, Connecticut, to take part in classified but routine operations with the nuclear attack submarine Greenling. On January 6, she was about 250 miles southeast of New York, running through 15-foot seas and wi nds which reached 40 miles per hour. All was well until shortly

before midnight when the helmsman reported that the ship was sluggish and not responding well. Shortly thereafter she began listing to port. Doc realized that a large vent had opened in the hull, allowing a rush of water into the forward hold. He had an SOS sent, a nd 10 minutes later, when the list had reached 45 degrees and the foredeck was awash, he gave the order to abandon ship. He and six crewmen and five technicians and engineers piled into an inflated rubber raft and cast off. Twenty minutes later the Sea Surveyor slid beneath the waves and the men in the raft settled down to what was to be a 26-hour ordeal in the stormy North Atlantic. Doc reported that life on the raft began inauspicuously enough with a bout of seasickness for most, but the men were worked into a routine where one stood watch at either end of the raft while the others huddled together for warmth. During the following day, the rain and spray, carried by high winds, soaked everyone through. They were unable to attract the attention of passing ships, and when night came the winds increased and high seas almost capsized the raft several times. About a half hour after midnight someone sighted a ship's lights. As they prepared to fire a parachute flare , the raft capsized, sending six men into the ocean and spilling all supplies, including the flares. One of the crew hung onto his flashlight, and he and the others signalled with it. It was sighted by an officer aboard the passing ship, the Norwegian freighter Essi Kristine , which headed for the flooded life r&ft. Because of the high seas, it took two hours lo get the survivors aboard' the freighter, and it proved impossible to transfer them to the Coast Guard Cutter Vigilant the next day. Conseq uently they made a nine-day voyage to Rotterdam on the Essi Kristine and returned home by plane. The origin of the vent in the hull has remained a mystery to the time this is written, si nce the Sea Surveyor had been tested last November with ultra sonic devices used to prove the integrity of submarine hulls and no defects had been found. Doc discounted the suggestion that there might have been a collision with another vessel but did not rule out the possibility that the ship might have struck a submerged object. After grad uati on from Trinity, Doc served on active duty with the Coast Guard, following which he commanded the world's largest ketch, the A tlantis, operated by the Woods Hole (Mass.) Oceanographic Institution. Before joining Electric Boat, he had been master of the 62-foot schooner Brilliant at Mystic for nine years. Bill Oliver has moved from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to 6 Dellwood Road, Darien, Conn. 06820. He is a vice president with Ba nk of Boston International, 2 Wall St., N.Y.C.

Ted Lockwood was elected to the Commission on College Administration of the Association of American Colleges at the groups' annual meeting in Pittsburgh, January 14th. The ACC is the national organization of undergraduate colleges of liberal arts and sciences. Its spokesmen represent the views of the 889 members on federal policy affecting undergraduate education. According to the Hartford Courant, as a member of the Commission, "Prexy" will meet periodically with 14 other education leaders to discuss and recommend policies and procedures to the association and its member colleges. Sam Goldstein is one of five Hartford attorneys who recently acted to form the law firm of Levine, Katz, Goldstein & Epstein . Sam is also corporation counsel for the Town of West Hartford and serves on the West Hartford Democratic Town Committee. Dr. Harold W. Gleason, filius, known to many as Winkie, wears two hats. As a civilian, he is a professor and chairman of the English department at Shippensburg State College. In the military, he holds the rank of major of the new unit441st Personnel Service Company, an Army Reserve unit providing administrative services to combat units. From a picture of the new major one feels he is still lithe, trim and eager. Another prominent professor's talents do not dwell with the military. Dr. Michael R. Campo, head of Trinity's department of Italian Studies, likes to concoct Osso Buco or Scampi Allo Capricciosa when his good wife, Inez, permits him in their kitchen at 1704 Boulevard, West Hartford. We understand a translation of the first dish is veal shanks; the second, shrimp according to whim . And we are certain this amiable Italian gourmet will furnish classmates with the recipe.

A number of newsy letters have been received since the last issue of the class notes. It is hoped that more of you who read and enjoy hearing about others will sit down with pen and paper, and send along some personal glimpses that will be of gene.ral interest. This just missed the last issue, but Ted

Ward was recently appointed president of Phoenix Equity Planning Corp. I had lunch with Ted recently, and he filled me in a little on the details of his new position. PEPCO is a wholly owned subsidiary of Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance Co., and handles Phoenix Mutual's entry into the mutual fund business. In addition to seeing that Phoenix's life insurance salesmen get re gistered with the NASD to sell their funds, Ted has also been going back to school, and bas been taking NASD (National Association of Securities Dealers) principal exams in various states around the U.S. In addition to his responsibilities with PEPCO, Ted also bas duties in the area of corporate develppment planning for Phoenix Mutual. Ted and his wife, Lois, live in a prerevolutionary house in New Hartford, and although they moved in over a year ago a nd the house was considerably restored, he says there is still a lot of work to do. Better keep the hammer, saw, nails, and plastering tools handy, Ted! One additional item, Ted reports that be sees Red Ratcliffe fairly frequently, and that Red has been quite successful in insurance sales in the New Hartford area. The Chuck McElwees visited my old stamping grounds in Puerto Rico last November in connection with a medical convention. Chuck writes that be cleaned up at the gaming tables (???) or was it that be got cleaned out ( ??? ) . At any rate, both be and Doris enjoyed the sun and the sand. Dick Yeomans recently joined UGI Corp., in Philadelphia, where he is assistant to the manager-Utility Economics. Previously, Dick was with the Pennsylvania Gas Management Co. in Leighton, Penna., where he was responsible for all company operations. Congratulations on your new job, Dick! Joe Morehead wrote a long, newsy letter from San Francisco, and made the impossible request to condense his two volume tome covering the last 15 years down to 25 words or less. Can't do it Joe, but will give it a try. Here goes! M.A. in English at Columbia (195455) , M.S. in Library Science at University of Kentucky (1963-64), and is currently doing work on and off at the University of California at Berkeley for a Ph .D. Joe has done a great deal of teaching during the intervening years: Orlando Jr. College in Florida ; for the University of Maryland Overseas Program in London, Marrakesh, Paris, Casablanca; currently is lecturing in philosophy of education at California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakl and, where he is also director of graduate placement. In his spare time Joe writes regularly for R eference Quarterly on U.S. Government Documents, writes occasional essays and poetry for Synergy, and last year he published a volume of poetry entitled lu th e Widening Gyre: Epiphanies Sacred and Profane. He also does free-lance writing and is researching a book on some rather esoteric subjects. Loves San Francisco, greatest city in the world (next to London) , and only has one complaint . . . that there aren't 48 hours in the day to do all that he wants to accomplish. No mention of a wife, so I assume Joe is still in the happy ranks of bachelorhood. Trust I have edited and condensed to your approval, Joe, a nd it was good to hear from you, but please don't wait so long next time - the postman needed a helper to get your epistle to the door, and it took me almost two weeks to read it.

W. James Tozer Jr. 425 East 79th St., Apt. 6F New York, NY 10021

Two of our classmates have recently left the relative ecurity of the world of banking to enter the securities brokerage business just in time to participate in what may well come to be known as the great bear market of 1969. Gerry Millar has left New England Merch ants Bank and is now a registered rep with Harri , Upham in their Boston office at 607 Boylston Street. Similarly, Bob Tyndall has resigned from the Chemical Bank to join Bache and Company the brokerage house. Good luck to you both. Taking Bob's place as one of our representatives at Chemical Bank is Terry Corbin who has just joined the bank. He will eventually be a loan officer in their national division. Terry and his wife are living on Sand Spring Road in Morristown ew Jersey, which is relatively convenient to both ew York and Philadelphia, where he is finishing up his MBA at Wharton. Another one of our banker-types has switc hed banks. As I may have reported before, John Richardson has moved from Bankers Trust to the Putnam Bank in Greenwich. That is certainly a pleasant way to beat the commuting problem. Both Scott Reynolds and I have different assignments in the same old insti tutions. Scott has been se nt to Ba nkers Tru t's Wall Street-based Securities Ex-


change Department where be is trying to organize and f.urther automate their securities handling operations thereby helping to alleviate the paper avalanche which is crippling Wall Street. There is, however, a brighter side to Scott's lifeon July 51h, in Racine Wisconsin, he plans to marry Margaret (Peggy) Joh nson, the att ractive blonde sister of T om Johnson o{ the Class of 1962.

Reynolds '63

First National City Bank, my employer, bas recently formed a holding company, First National City Corporation and I have been moved out of the overseas investment area, into the corporate planning department where I am working on our acquisition and diversification program, the objective of which, legislation permitting, is to become a diversified financia l service company. Bruce Hill, whose father died quite suddenly last summer, is taking education courses at the University of Pittsburgh so that he ca n become an accredited teacher. Meanwhile he is interviewing everal public and private secondary schools for possible positions. It was a! o quite a shock to have heard that Dwight Holbrook recently lost both of his parents in an automobile accident. After a long silence, it was good to hear from H enry May, who after graduating from the University of Buffalo, went to work for the J. W. Clement Company, a large national printing company. Last May he married Joan Cooley and they now live in Buffalo at 778 Lafayette Avenue. M ike Leinbach , who received an MBA from Stanford last June, is working for the Fiberboard Paper Company as a marketing analyst. He is using computers to seek out rapidly expanding markets into which Fiberboard might wish to move. He and Sue have just moved into a new wood and glass house at 881 Richardson Court in Palo Alto, California. Also out in California is Bob Bylin who eems to have a new assignment for every issue of the Alumni Magazine. The Placement Office has learned that Bob is now staff assistant to the director of discrete operations for Fairchild Semiconductor in Mountain View, Cal. The past year has proven to have been a year of considerable achievement for Dick Smith, who, as you recall, is the organist-choirmaster of St. James Anglican Church in Dundas, Ontario. He not only put on an organ program which was broadcast nation-wide over the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation network, but also in January and February of this year he toured England and Scotland which included a recital in the Chapel of The Queen's College, Oxford. ln addition, be is on the faculty of the Royal Hamilton College of Music.

After a year and a half in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where Dick Moore was the curate at St. Michael's and Episcopal Chaplain at Coe and Cornell Colleges, be and his family (wife Pauline and 2 year old daughter Elizabeth) have moved to Fairfield, Iowa, where he will be vicar of St. Peter's and the Episcopal chaplain at Parsons College . Congratulations are in order for Ken Dalzell who has just been promoted from assistant production manager to production manager for Fostoria Glass Company which is located in Moundsville, West Virginia, where Ken lives. John Pitcairn, who until recently has been a sales representative for Alcoa in Chicago, has been transferred back to their corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh where he is assigned to the advertising department. In as much as his primary area of responsibility is for promotions at trade shows and conventions, be will be traveling a fair amount which, be assures me, means he may turn up on any of our doorsteps on relatively short notice. Look forward to seeing you in New York, John. Dick Bertstein is now serving a court clerkship with Judge Fay with the United States Tax Court in Washington, D.C. D ave Brewster has received advance word of a relatively less envious government assignment- this summer he will begin his stint in Viet Nam as a military doctor. Good Luck, Dave. Congratulations to Gary Knisley and Varian Ayres. The bridegroom is a space sales representative for the international editions of Time magazine.

Guiliano '63

Capt. George Guiliano has completed his I OOth combat mission in Southeast Asia. He is a B-52 Stratofortress pilot with the 458th Strategic Wing from U-Tapao Airfield, Thailand.

David J. Graybill 352 Canner St. New Haven, Conn. 06511

A ton of newsnotes to report this time as '65 makes its splash. I am sure each and every one of us shares the relief and joy with Lt. "Skip" Schumacher and his family at his return to the United States. Skip had been serving on the U.S.S. Pueblo when it was cap-

37


tured by the North Koreans in January, 1968. Many of us followed the negotiations throughout this past year and have followed even more closely the testimony given by the members of the Pueblo's crew - including Skip's. We are ever so thankful that his release was secured, albeit belated . Welcome back, Skip! The last address I have for Skip is 9 Southmoor Drive, Clayton, Missouri 63105. We have a year of "stuff" to catch him up on. After a June '68 magna cum laude graduation from the University of Pennsylvania Law School and marriage, Ward Kelsey and spouse have joined VISTA. According to Ward, they are rabble-rousing for "bread and justice" in the cornfields of Waterloo, Iowa ( 1004 Mulberry Street, 50703) . "We are trying bard but have little expectation of planting the Alinsky germ in this section of the Corn Belt." The Kelsey's activities will include "investigation and preparation of cases involved with housing, welfare and other legal problems of the poor, advise and assist in dealing with the complex regulations of public agencies and their relation with poor communities, and develop interracial programs attacking common problems of the poor." Ward also noted that Peter Prentice, wife Eleanor and son, Nathaniel had moved to the Bronx ( 1841 Bogart Ave. , 10462) . Pete is "starting the grind at Albert Einstein Medical School. The Rev. Andrew D. Smith was ordained a priest by Bishop Walter H. Gray March 22nd. Jim Bishop bas been released from active duty with the Navy. He has been serving on the U.S.S . Ticonderoga. Bruce Jay is "hiding" in the American Consulate in Recife, Brazil. I don't know what he's doing but he must! His address is American Consulate, Recife Pernambuco, Brazil. Dave Hornfischer has established a Trinity Club (of sorts) at Swampscott, Massachusetts. Dave has just completed a three-year financi al management program with General Electric. He and his family (wife, Elsa and son, Jim) have recently moved from Swampscott to Amherst, Massachusetts (RFD #3, Montague Road) , where be has begun a job as an information systems analyst in the Computer Center at Amherst College. (There must be some regulations about conflictof-loyalties.) During the "great blizzard of '69" (which one?) Dave hosted the stranded Allan R. Nielson's (wife, orma and son, Allan III) and the Bob Price's (wife, Karen) following a reunion party and Celtics game. Dave has also managed to keep in touch with Dick Gould, who retreat from Boston and law school teaching every once in a while to Swampscott. A now all-but-ancient note from Phil Parsons tells us that he and his wife would probably be jungling with the Peace Corps somewhere in South America. The same letter also told of John Elwood's marriage to "Babs," the Eric Lodge's new acquisition (like a baby), and recent contacts with Tom Garson and Park Benjamin in ew York. I tried to contact Tom some weeks ago in New York. At that time he was in Birmingham, Alabama, troubleshooting for Loveable. Who knows where he is now? Bob Arensman, after fini hing medical school , has been "batching" around the world, traveling through Japan and India, skiing in Europe, etc. He is presently

38

working in endocrinology and hepatology at some unknown location and will begin an internship in June of this year. Thayer Bigelow finished business school at the University of Virginia in June, 1967, and joined Time, Inc. in tbe comptroller's department. He bas married the former Ann Rogenson and is now living at 45 East End Ave., New York. Joe Noyes ill, after a stint in the U.S. Army Special Forces in intelligence operations and a position as a production supervisor for J elco Laboratories, bas joined the investment firm of Thomson & McKinnon Inc. as a registered representative in the Long Branch Office. The Noyes also have welcomed a second child, William Arnold (born July 12, 1968) . Joseph Goldberg bas culled a position as clerk to U .S. District Judge M. Joseph Blumenfeld in Hartford. Capt. Kenneth Thoren h::ts been decorated with the Bronze Star Medal at Hon Tre Island, Vietnam, for "meritorious service while engaged in military operations against Viet Cong forces." At that time, Ken was cited for his "performance as a training and assistant operations officer in Vietnam." He is now a we apons controller in a unit of the Pacific Air Forces. Capt. Kim S. Waterhouse bas received the Air Medal at Reese AFB, Texas for "meritorious achievement as a navigator" while assigned at Yokota AFB, Japan. This medal, Kim 's sixth (!) , was awarded for "his outstanding airmanship and courage on successful and important missions under hazardous conditions." Our heartiest congratulations to both Ken and Kim on the medals and their service. Fred Prillaman was graduated from Northwestern University Law School. His wife, Judy, honored the occasion by presenting him with their second son . Fred is now in private law practice in Springfield, Illinois. Lou Huskins was graduated from the University of Chicago Law School and is now teaching as assistant professor of law at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska. Timothy Bushnell, after leaving the service last November, bas settled with the Automotive Assembly Division of Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan . Malcolm MacPherson is now with Newsweek. Mark Aron is teaching Jaw at Osgood Hall , a part of New York University at Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

This fall he plans to enter U.C.L.A. to finish his degree. Ed Conover is out of the U.S. Navy and is working with the UNIVAC Division of Sperry-Rand Corp. He lives at 95 Vanderveer Ave., Somerville, N.J., 08876. A lot of addresses have changed in recent months and more will change. Where are you? What are you doing? I like mail. The rest of your class is anxious to bear from you.

F abi an Bachrach

Long shall Trinity men remember the presence here, the words, the fellowship with our college of the President of the United States who, knowing that the foundation of the state is the education of its youth , has come into our midst. . . . He has so lived and acted in the crises of our time that his deeds in the service of his country and of the world need no words of praise .. . . Amid the applause of Trinity men I present our "Ike" who has won our highest respect for his humility, friendly sincerity, and integrity; our love for his tolerance, human understanding and fairness in handling every problem; our admiration for the quickness of perception and penetrating analysis in those sudden crises which admit of little or no deliberation; an expert in the humane use of power who amid great responsibilities forgets not the logistics of the heart. .. Excerpt from the citation read on the occasion of awarding a Trinity honorary degree to President Eisenhower, October 20, 1954, by his friend and former colleague at Columbia University, Dr. Albert C. Jacobs.
