With one eye t(i (lie uiicerUiiii futiiii' 
and one to tlic tumultuous post, memlicrs 
of the WilliuniB student hoily dolTed oon- 
seivalive mantles to join with some twenty 
other colleges tlirimnhout the Knst in the 
cry for e(iiiulity for the N'eteruiis iif Future 
Wars. The positions of local potentates 
were assigned to and deniwi by several 
campus notuhles Thursday; when The

C. .lay. Jr. '3K composf'd the ever-dianKinK 
nucleus, bearing titles of Co-Conunandcr. 

The initial spark of this orKanizati<m of 
"futures" was nurtured to its present 
maturity in the bosoms of nine Princeton 
men headed by l<. .1. (Jorin '3(1, elected

demand inimeiliate payment of their 
money that they may enjoy it while still

there is aj^lutely no justice in paying a 
bonus after the war, for by then the most 
deserving bloc of veterans has always 
been kille<l off. Second, an immediule

Local Chapter Has Charter 

Outsi<le comment on the organization 
included hearty approval from the Na- 
tional Conmiander of American Veterans 
Association in "hope that it may well have 
evolved an idea that might have great 
Ijossibilities in the common welfare" ns 
well as an attack from the National Com- 
mander of Foreign Wars condemning the 
student veterans as "yellow". The answer 
issued from the National Commander 
of Veterans of Future Wars charged that 
the senior commander wiis "re<l".

R. A. Pittaway Objects to Taste of Program By 
Dartlett, Robertson; Praises Command of Keyboard 

( Thin nrlirlc is initlen especuilly for The' 
Record by Hudnlph A. Pitlaway of the 
Bennington College facility. ) 

By a recital in Chapin Hall on Tuesday 
evening, Ethel Bartlett and Rae Rolwrt- 
st)n further enhanced their growing reputa- 
tion as one of the best piano teams on the 
concert stage of today; but in spite of their 
excellent piano playing, it cannot lie said 
that the choice of Tuesday evening's pro- 
gram was in excellent taste. 

The first group on the program consisted 
of three transcriptions from the work of 
Johann Sel)astian Bach. The arrange- 
ment by Mary Howe of /( is a True Saying 
and Sheep May Safely Graze are justifiable 
a« far as most two piano arrangements go, 
but the Saar arrangement of the Prelude in 
E major borders on t he ridiculous. There 
is little or no excuse for turning a perfectly 
g<K)d musical work into a mere travesty for 
the purpose of shallow technical display. 
To one well acquainted with the original 
form of the movement from the violin 
PartUa in E major and Bach's own arrange- 
ment of the same as the Overture to the 28th 
Cantata, the Saar transcription appearsasa 
flagrant case of distortion (to say nothing 
of the absurd tempo preitlitinmo at which 
the artists tmik it on Tues<lay evening). 
It is to he doubted that Busoni or Petri, 
who astonished musicians in their audi- 
ences of fifteen and twenty years ago by 
performing the seemingly impossible, 

'would have condescended to such cheap 

Bizet Suite Termed 'Tritmiph' 

The Andr.ute and Variations by Robert 
Schumann and the Bizet Jeux d'En/anIs 
received much belter treatment. In fact, 
the musicianship and fine interpretative 
jMiwers of the artist came well to the fore in 
a faithful rendering of Schumann's in- 
spired work, and the rendering of the Bizet 
suite was an artistic triumph. 

Among the concluding group (three 
over-familiar numbers) the Schulz-Envler 
attempt to drain the Blue Danube Waltz of 
Strauss's original inspiration served as an 
excellent me<lium for displaying the artists' 
extraordinarily fine command of the key- 
board. Such a show of pyrotechnics 
should at least discredit the theorj* of some 
who claim that the pupils of Tobias 
Matthay have no piano technique. (Both 
artists were pupils of the well-known 
piarwforle t«»cher, Tobias Matthay, who 
has produced other famous artists, among 
whom may be ranked MvTa Hess.) 

In response to applause three encores 
were granted. As a final word, the writer 
was somewhat disappointed that Rae 
RoViertson and Ethel BarlJett did not in- 
troduce some of the duo piano music 
especially composed for them by such con- 
temporary composers as Arnold Bax, 
I.ennox Berkeley, Vaiighan Williams, and

Shakespearian Comedy To 
Be Run at Walden Theatre 

Reinhardt's Noted Production of 

'Midsummer Night's Dream' 

Coming Tuesday 

Urged by a group of faculty members 
and undergraduates and at considerable 
inconvenience to himself, Cal King, pro- 
prietor of the Walden Theater, has ob- 
taine<l William Shakesijeare's famous com- 
edy, A Midsummer Night's Dream, 
filmed for the first time, which he will 
show next Tuesday and Wednesday. The 
picture has oeen brought directly from the 
Hollywood Theater in New York and will 
be shown in its entirety to buyers of re- 
served seats, though it will not be relea8e<l 
at popular prices until next autumn. 

The picture features Felix Mendel- 
ssohn's Overture to A Midsummer Night's 
Dream, his Scherzo and Nocturne, as well 
as ballets staged by Bronislava Nijinsky 
and Nini Theila<lc. When shown for po|v 
iilar consumption next fall it is expected 
that the whole Overture as well as thiriy 
minutes of the story will be cut. The 
three hour production is directed by Max 
Reinhardt and William Dicterle, the 
former having put on many Shakespearian 
dramas on the legitimate stage. 

Produced by Max Reinhardt 

First produced in the Globe Theater 
alraut 1593, its leading roles have been in- 
tcrfiretefl by most of the famous Shakes- 
pearian players of all ages. Originally 
rendered by a cast of male performers and 
entirely without scenery, its presentAtions 
have steadily increased in richness culmi- 
nating in Max Reinhardt's brilliant nut- 
door productions. Put on the screen for 
the first time, the producers, Warner 
Brothers, feel that they have combine<I the 
imaginative genius nf two great men. 

Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, 
March 24 and 25, at 8.00 p. m. prices 
range from $.75 to $1 .60 plus tax while on

Pratt, first Eli speaker, after President 
Forney had opened the meeting with 
apologies for the candle power, "but once 
it has arrived we are unhappy about it." 
Citing the arrival of the present depres-

His tour includes si)eaking engagements in 
the now engulfed city of Pittsburgh, and 
also Minneapolis, Cincinnati, St. Ixmis. 
Chicago, and Washington, D. C. 

Dr. Dennett is emphasizinc the signifi-

Damage Put at Thousands 

Marmaduke, Pet Pig, Has Stormy 
Evening on Hoosac River 
But Is Rescued 

By Francis Boardman, Jr. '38 

UiKlergraduates and townspeople re- 
verted to the gas lit era of the (lay Nineties 
last Wednesday when flood conditions 
■•ondere'' "" rlootriejil appliances in the 
town usclss for an eleven hour Mretcli. The 
high waters started to recede at 0.00 p. m. 
Wednesday, but their havoc- had been so 
great that only in emergency cases could 
outside communication be effected except 
through the inediuin of the overworked 
town telephone operators. 

It was estimated by town officials that 
the <laniage to nmds and bridges would run 
into several thoiiKjinds of dollars, but Pro- 
fessor Willis I. Milbam declared the flood 
"not as bad" as that of 1927. 

The electric current was shut off just 
after 10.00 a. m. when the deva-stating 
waters of the Hoosac and (ireeii Rivers 
flooded and short circuited w ires from the 
power company in Nortli Adams which 
carried '22,000 volts. At 9.25 p. m., the 
current was restored.

illuminated with candles and hejrjoom 
kerosene lamps, whil: low lights fli*^-er«l 
from surrounding house.s and tlormitories. 
Insubstantiated rumors that the circuit 
would be off for forty-eight hours resulted 
in a rush for available candles. One store 
sold a ten year supply, finally reaching the 
IMint where its etiirepreneurs were forced to 
purchase their personal sujjply from com- 

Students were directly afTecled when 
they confronted the prospect of cramming 
for hour tests by candlelight, and there 
was more than one sigh of relief when a 
number of exams were jmstijonecl the next 
morning. One professor had been called 
to the telephone forty-seven times. Fra- 
ternity members were disturbed in a num- 
ber of instances where electric stoves were 
in vogue. Cal King was forced to shut 
down the W.nlden Theatre. Indauiitcd, 
however, the Adelphic Union clashed with

the delayed ran off of last w eek's 2.55 inch

perhaps, an occasion for golden-anniversury elotiuenco iind .self-nraUi- 
hition. The 1937 editors, however, prefer to celebrate by a re-dediciition 
to what they feel to be best in the Wiiiiains tradition. 

The college has a past to be proud of. It owes this standing, in the 
final analysis, to the fact that there has been a steady stream of young 
men who have chosen to come here to get that preparation for life which 
we call an education. Of late the struggle for existence has been increas- 
ingly keen, and we venture to suggest that future iinderginuluate.s will 
require a more arduous preparation for the battle. This train of thought 
results in a paradox: Williams can be true to its past, it can maintain its 
standing, only as it is ready to meet the stiffer demands of the times. 
Not that every change is for the better; we only assert that Williams must 
continue to grow, and it behooves all of us to see that it grows in the right 
direction. Of necessity the Administration must introduce improve- 
ments chiefly by the method of trial and error; when the result of the ex- 
periment is error, the undergraduates are in an excellent position to feel it, 
and if they present their case moderately, acknowledging the limitations 
of their perspective, they are doing the college a service. 

At this point common .sense reminds us that it takes more than edu- 
cational facilities to make an education. No matter how perfect the 
college may be as an intellectual and social institution — a streamlined 
Faculty, a supercharged curriculum, with fraternities and activities to 
match — it will have little effect on the undergraduate who is indifferent 
to its opportunities. We have great respect for the rare student who can 
work out an education for himself independent of classroom and campus, 
but most attempts re.sult in a vegetative existence, and a college course 
becomes a four-year rut. 

We expect on occasion to venture beyond the local scene in search of 
grist for the editorial mill. Significant trends and events at home and 
abroad will be discussed, not in an authoritative spirit, not because the 
day is at hand when the country will turn to the college-trained youth to 
lead it out of darknesf- into the millenium, but simply because we believe 
it is valuable exercise; if it provokes some counter-thought, .so much the 

Finally, the reader is reminded that The Keiord can have a repre- 
sentative policy only to the extent that the editors are in touch witli that 
elusive but potent force, campus opinion. who agree and those 
who differ, those who find something superfluous or lacking in our policy, 
are encouraged to express thctiiselves to the erlitors, so that this column 
may be a for controversy. The editors do not feel theiii- 
.selves bound to voice the opinion of the majority, but rather to exercise 
their own judgment in selecting the best advice to be had and synthe- 
sizing it with their own opinions. In fields in whi(!h undergraduate 
interest is paramount, such as extra-curricular activities, we claim the

of the N'orthem Berkshire (las that crosses

of the ridiiiK "acaileiny" down by the sta-

Council May Lower Assessment 
Paid to 'GuI' by 16 Social Groups 

A movement is underway in the Un- 
dergraduate Council, it was announced, 
to lower the assessment retiuired from each 
social gniup on the campus by the Giilid- 
metmnn, for space in the annual for 
group iiictnres. Although no official ac- 
tion has been taken at this point, it is 
understood that Barton Carter '37, Busi- 
ness Manager of the publication, will 
be approached for a jiossible solution to a 
problem which has been an issue for some 

At the same time, the tJndergraduate 
Council recommended that the incoming 
Board of that body quit Hieir offices on 
March I rather than at the Spring, 
as is the iirevalent jilan. Increase in the 
work of the seniors, as a result of the 
planned comi)rehensivc examinations 
which will alTect the Claas of 1938 gave 
rise to t be recommendation. 

Joe Kremer Leads Lehman Cup 
Meet After First Day's Events 

The (irst day of the aiunial l.chninn Cup 
truck and field competition, open to all 
nicndiers of the college, saw ,loc Kremer, 
sprintnmn for two years on Varsity teams, 
out in front in the race for the winner's cup 
with eight and a half |Miinls. .Scoring iirst 
in the ,50-vard ilash and tying for second 
in the high jump, Kremer is followed on 
the opening day of sciiring by Roger 
Moore, a sjieedy Kreshmun hurdler and 
sprinter, who garnertMl four and a half 

Only two events were run otT Thursday 
afternoon, the ,50 meter ilasli on the boards 
and the high jump in the cage. A repeti- 
tion of an cvi-nt which occurred last year 
and almost put 'I'iffy Cook out of the run- 
ning occurred when Kremer, in a false .start 
in the semi-final of the dash, cracked off a 
fairly sizeable piece of the (rack, but went 
on to win his heat later in :t)5.(>. 

Pete Clallagher, outstanding yearling 
sprinter, was clocked in the same time in 
winning his heat, but bowed to Kremer in 
the linals when the jxiwcrful senior broki' 
the imaginary tape in :t)5.4. Moore was 
third in the lluals. follow ed l>y Heals of the 
freshmen and Ted Uallard. 

In the high jump, Warner Cumber ran 
away with lop honors, winning from the 
field with a jump of five feet, six inches, 
and going on to clear live eight. Kremer

Williams Students Unite 
In 'Patriotic' Organization 

(Continued from Wrst Paee> 
land Commander. Although the date 
for a Williams rally has not yet been set, 
notice was issued that t be college band will 
cooperate. Membership leciuirements for 
the V.F.W. include an age limit of 311 
years and fee of twenty-live cents. It is 
urgently hoped by the Williams Com- 
manders that faculty members will feel 
perfectly free to join in the drive as have 
the Princeton professors. 

Not to remain obscure and inactive 
because of their femininity, Vas.siu' patriots 
banded together in a subsidiary organi- 
zation to be known as the Cold .Star 
Mothers of the Veterans of Futur(^ Wars, 
branches of which have already settled 
at Cotmecticut. College for Women and 
Wellesley College, with a third rapidly 
taking form at Bennington under the 
Kuidance of Miss Frederica Cornell and 
enthusiastic cohorts. The hue and cry of 
these future stricken ones calls for a trip 
to Europe to view (lie future graves where 
their future loved ones will in the future 
lie as a result of a future war. 

Forced (o draw heavily u|M>n his store of 
pitching knowledge in order to salvage 
something from his last year's hurling 
statT. which was partially wrecked by the 
loss of Kddie .Sheehan. his most consistent 
winner, (.liarley Caldwell nuide mention of 
no sensational ilevelopnienls in his mound 
corps, and disclosed nothing save intima- 
tions to the etTecl that plans for the coming 
iliamond campaign are still in the rough. 
Caldwell also appeared unenthusiastic re- 
garding the ilevelopment of any pronn.sing 
inlielders, who, handicapi>eil by wet 
weather, have been working out in the 
limited space of the cage in an effort to 
round inlii shape before facing Princeton 
iMi March 31. 

Aside from Harry Stevens and Walt 
Fuchs, hard-min..ft>.oi.,,nins, little i)romis- 
ing mauiial liux been as .\«i uncovered. 
Caldwell has been siM>nding considerable 
time with .lohniiy Fox, furnicr slow-ball 
artist from the Berkshire School, who 
transferred last year from I-afayette, 
while ,lolinny Baldinger and Fielding Sim- 
mons, inexperienced Sojihoniore candi- 
dales. have also come in lor consiilerable 
drilling. Also parliciiialing in the |)ilcli- 
ing practices have been Wilbur While, 
Ski Webbe. and .\rt Sachtleben, none of 
whom has had any great experience. 
Moseley Only Certain Starter 

Caldwell has announced no tentative 
line-u]) to date. Captain Bill Mo.seley at 
catcher being the only certain starter. 
Tom Bryant, .lunior letterman, and Phil 
Stearns, slugging star of last year's Fresh- 
man nine, continue to wage a hot fight for 
the first base starting position, while 
Rabbit Forbes, Hank Stanton, and Kddie 
Stanley stand out as likely possibilities for 
the remaining infield (msts, closely followeil 
by Charlie Markoski and Bob Patters<in. 

The greatest mystery continues to he 
the outfield, with Pete Salsi(di api)arently 
the outatanditiK proRppiit. When not oc- 
cupied with their mound duties Hairv 
Stevens and Walt Fuchs will probably 
.share the left field spot, with the center 
fielder probably to he chosen from among 
the harder hitlers in the infield group. 


The date for the annual Spring 
llou.sepaities has been set for May I.') 
and 1(1, it has been announced by the

and the best sport is still tliut of tbiiikiiig

cohinins of statistics, but "iiie and Paul"

Lecture on John Kepler Given

"John Kepler: A Study in Motivation", 
was the subject of the lecture xiven Tluirs- 
iluy afternoon in the Thompson Physics 
Ijiliorulory by Associate Prof(!s«or Donald 
H. Kichinoiid, Tracinx the career of this 
^reat scientist, who propoundeil the 
theory that I he center of the plunetory sys- 
tem was the sun instead of the earth as he- 
lieved luiietofore. Dr. Uiclimoiid nuve his 
uudit>nce an amusing und interesting in- 
sight into the life of this learned mathema- 
tician who lived fr<Mn 1571 to l(i;i(). 

John Kepler's home life was fur from a 
happy one, I'rofessor Hichinond |)oinled 
out. First of all he was horn to a ne'er-do- 
well father, who soon deserted his depend- 
ents to become a mercenary soldier, und a 
hot-headed mother who <levelo|ied into a 
neurotic and was later trie<l for witchcraft. 
Then John Ke|)l(T made two noiie-too 
successful niurrianes and of the seven chil- 
dren who were born to him hy these 
wimien, only two lived to reach maturity.

Luckies are less acid. For hundreds of 
years, tobaccos were selected — and grada- 
tions in flavor secured — by the roughest sort 
of rule of thumb methods. Hence, one of 
the most important innovations made by 
the Research Department was provision 
for chemical analysis of selected tobacco 
samples before purchase: the resulting re- 

ports offer the professional buyer an accu- 
rate guide and reinforce his expert judg- 
ment based on the senses of sight, smell, 
and touch. Thus extreme variations toward 
acidity or alkalinity are precluded by such 
selection and subsequent blending.

Xiiliomil (liiigniitliir. Kuhlai Khali, the 
mull who hud aniviHl, would never have 
been heard of, asserted tlie speaker, had it 
not lieeii for Mareo I'olo, the man who 
was travelling hopefully. 

Mitchell Urges 'Reason' 
"We iiiusi have a reiisoii to jouiiipy 
hopefully that is hused on the past arrivals 
of someone," explained II. Vincent 
Mitchell, defending the negative for 
\\illiaiiis. He attacked the (piestioii 
I)sycholonically from the iialividual point 
of view with the assertion that we look 
forwartl with maxinium pleasure and 
hence tend to niiiiimize,*amply illiLslrated 
by references to Bernuula and Norlham|)- 
ton. His solution was to minimize first. 
DeclariiiK that while anticipation is purely 
mental, arrival is physical and thus gives 
more pleasure, the sjM-aker emphasized 
that "there is a certain force pushing men 
on toward events." Insane people, he 
explained, dream of insane journeys at 
whose end they never arrive. 

"It is better to travel timorou.sly us a 
freshman than to remain idle as a sopho- 
more or junior or to have arrived as u 
senior," said August Heckscher, head of 
the Vale liiion ami the Yale DehatiiiK 
Association and grandson of the noted Schohiiiy quotations 
graced his illustrations of how the Canter- 
bury pilgrims never .saw the spires of Can- 
terbury, how the successful men after 
forty keep traveling to the very end by 
meeting new things by which to travel 
hojiefully, how the college should make 
men for .seeking new things. Urg- 
ing the principle of desiring to see Kip- 
ling's "something lost behind the ranges", 
Heckscher concluded with the opinion that 
"we live in a world where arrivals are 
precious and few, but where opportunities 
for travel are innumerable. Life should 
be lived most gaily on the frontiers and 
firing lines of the world," since they lead to 
liidden cities which are never reached. 
Newhall Defines 'Better' 
Bringing the discussion back to a more 
practical point of view, Norman Xewhull, 

sfciiiiil W illiHina deiialcr, einphaBi/.e<l 
the elenifiits of fiuccesis anil construct ivi'- 
nesft ill the word "better". "Arrivul is 
better thuii traveling lio|K'fully," he de- 
clared, "because urrival is s|iieml over to a 
huge number of individuals, while travel- 
ing hopefully is iiecessiirily luntiiied to the 
traveler." Many iK'ople, iiiTording to the 
speaker, criticize the present adiiiinis- 
tratioii because they are traveling hope- 
fully and do not itrrive. Kaiphasi/.ing his 
praclical points of view, Newhall .thowed 
how projects merely dieaiacil of, such as 
slum clearing, sliip huildiiig, or scientific 
acliieveiiu'iits, ar<' never successful or con- 
structive if the dreamer docs not arrive at 

"What they are telling us," pointed out 
Mitchell ill the ri-liultal, "istliat it is better 
to conceive a pietuie llian lo set it down 
on canvas." Men, he ileclared, are 
hirced on liy the desire to arrive, and only 
by actual arrival, where we discover our 
errors and truths, docs life go on. Marco 
I'olo was famous because lie arrived and 
founil what was actually there, while 
cupitalism has not yet arrived at the 
solution of distribution in a world ik;- 
peiulent on a system of rewards. 

Princeton Debate Tonight 

Heckscher, unearthing the principal 
disagreement in the debate, explained that 
"What to one man may seem to arrive 
may seem to anotlicr to he part of a long 
and hopeful journey." Alexander, he as- 
serted, sigbetl for new worlds to conquer, 
(iibhoii ditln't feel any sense of achieve- 
ment after completing bis gigantic Dr- 
dine mid Fall hut wanted to go on. 
"To argue tolerantly," he concluded, "is 
much better than to arrive at a conclu- 

liexotveil. That t his house favors the re- 
election of President Roosevelt is the 
subject for which Williams, represented 
by Thomas .J. Miller '3(i and ,)olin P.

New Deal Economy Appraised 
For Liberal Club by Dr. Smith 

"1 am interested in Kovcrnment as an 
institution that will laydown certain rules 
of the game," declared Dr. Walter H. 
.Smith of the Ecdiamiics department in an 
appraisal of I he economics of the New Deal 
before the Liberal Club in .lesuji Hall on 
tSunday eveniiiK. In his resume of various 
Roosevelt mcMsiires he reached no "yes or 
no" conclusion but left the hearers to de- 
cide for themselves. 

"When you appraise a |)henoniena like 
the Roosevelt iidniinistralion you must set 
certain standards to have in mind," he ex- 
plained. Dr. Smith denounced principles 
of judgment dependent on stereotyped or 
catch phrases or on particular points of 
view, and in their place established 
of relief, recovery, and reform. Included 
in the latter were the questions of raisinjj 
the fundamental standard of living, a rea-

Youth Aid Bill Proposed

which the unit, but two years old, is carry- 
ing un. 

The Council also proposed an amend- 
ment to the constitution with the end in 
view that the Executive Committee in 
office should mmiinate the President, 
Secretary and Treasurer of the Ixidy, 
since it was felt that such indication of 
ability might lienefit incoming members, 
who are the actual electors. It is also 
understood that the S.A.C. will not ter- 
minate their tenure of office this year at 
the same time as will the I'ndergraduate 
Council, since the liooks ejinnot be brought 
to a close early enough to permit the ac- 
tion. Measures will lie taken in Ihe 
future to insure Ihe early release of the 
Senior memliers from their work, in order 
that greater time may be given to work 
concerning the Oillege curricuhim in 
preparation for the final examinations.

Christian Association lo Allot 
Fund For National Flood Relief 

Members of the Christian Association 
at their meeting. Sunday noon, decided to 
allot over J300.(K) of its .><tudent Aid funil 
to the National Flmxl Relief Committee as 
its contribution to help meet the disasters 
of the recent flood conditions throughout 
the East. 

The exact size of the allotment is as yet 
undetermined since the amount available 
from the Student .\id Fund cannot lie 
definitely determined for awhile. It was 
at first thought advisable to limit the 
Association's gift to only $3f)0.00 hut con- 
sideration of the comparative needs for 
the money in Ihe Student .\id Fund and 
the national emergency led to a rlecision 
to leave the amount undetermined tmlil a 
check on available funds !«■ made. 

Ixical needs for relief fmm flood con- 
ditions amount to practically nothing, 
according to Mrs. Richard .\. Newhall. 
chairman of local welfare work. In no was the need great enough to require 
public assistance, she said. 

Miimtdit, Mnrcli ..'.?- The .\deli)hic 
I'nion debater.s; will take the rostrum 
against a team from the I'niversity of 
Hawaii to defend the negative of the (pics- 
tion "KtsiiU'i'il, That this house favors the 
admission of Hawaii lo Ihe rnion as a 
forty-ninth slate" tonight in .lesu)) Hall 
auditorium at .S.(X) p. m. Mr. N. B. 
Bock, .\8sist ant Professor of linglish at the 
I'niversity, will present "Highlights of 
Hawaii" illustrated by two films immedi- 
ately following the debate. 

.Arguing Ihe affirmative for the lla- 
waiiiins are, lohn .\.Cas.stevcn.sand RolM'rt 
G. North '37, both orators of consider- 
able experience. The former won the 
.Soiitliern California championship in the 
International Oratorical Contest on the 
Con.slitution in 1930, wasa member of the 
I'niversity of Hawaii teiun that dchatc<l 
Harvard over the facilities of the National 
BroBilca.sting Company in .\pril, 1935, and 
has announced several "Hawaii Calls" 
programs over the Coliiinbia network. 
Before tnmsferring to the island insti- 
tutioa the latter was a memlier of the 
I'niversity of Southern California's var- 
sity panel, debated HarvanI over the 
NBC hookup last April, and wiis a cam- 
paign sjieaker for l.t. Gov. Hatfield in 
Califomm in I9.'J3. 

George D. Forney, President of the 
Adelpliic I'nion, and Raymond A. Mc-

Stuart Brown of Merion, Pa., to the position of Photographic Editor 
on the 1937 Board. 


The fact that WilHamstown survived the recent floods with a iiiini- 
niuni of inconvenience and loss does hot blind us to the devastation else- 
where and the avoidable danger of subsequent disease and suffering 
among those who bore the brunt of the disaster. The plan of the W.C.A, 
to turn over a part of the (Ihest Fund surplus to the American Red Cross 
for relief work in New I'^ngland deserves the endorsement of the student 
body. FiVeiy effort should be made promptly to meet all pledges to the 
Fund which have fallen due, in order that thisiiiay beeft'ectivelycarricdout. 


One of the most vital problems facing the nation today is this: 
How are five million unemployed and incompletely educated young 
people to be absorbed in our economic system? The American Youth 
"Act" now under consideration in Congress recognizes the problem, but 
as a solution it is open to serious question. Will the trade unions, not to 
mention the employers, find it such an inipioveinent to have public relief 
works competing with them on equal wage terms? Does past experience 
indicate much chance for efficient distribution of funds? Can the na- 
tional budget stand the strain of an additional expenditure estimated at 
over «3,500,()00,0(X) annually? 

The bill is expected to die in Congress. If this leads to a fuller 
consideration and a more practical solution, it will not die in vain.

Let's take a peek 
at the past! 

A generation back, men accumulated a fine wardrobe, by 
buying one GOOD SUIT or COAT a season, and gradually 
adding another. Durability was as essential as style and 

A generation ago too, the LANGROCK tradition of quality 
was already established. Many a fine wardrobe was built 
around one LANGROCK garment. 

You can safely follow this old custom. The soft construction 
and hand tailoring of every LANGROCK suit or coat, permits 
severe wear without losing original lines. Build YOUR WARD- 
ROBE around clothes that look good, and STAY YOUNG in-

Over 80 Freshmen Will

Tennis Prospects Excellent, Track 

Good; Baseball, Lacrosse 


Some eiKhty ur iiiiiely yearliiiKB »ill be

Freshman titams when ofticial practice nets 
under way after spring vacation. To dale 
only informal practice sessions in the Caue 
and on the hoard track have been held in 
lireparation for Ihe hirthcoming (Min- 

Sleppinx beyond the bounds of early 
season pre(li(;l ions, it can be said that 
tennis is du(* for its mosi impn^ssive season 
since at least the days of .M Horlon and 
his troupe. Track should be above average, 
while the lacrosse team will have its usual 
difficulty with Ihe opponents from collexcK 
where Ihe sport is more established and 
ba.scball will be anywhere from ^ood to 

No more than twenty-live yearlings will 
try for Ihe hascball club, but Coach Fowie 
has had litUe opporluiiity to make any 
judKineiit coueerning their season. Stii 
Sutphin, erstwhile Pawling star, .should 
rate well on the mound staff along with 
Ben I'pson and (ieorge Hadlcy. The 
other battery posilioii is likely to see a stilT 
coiapelilion between Larry Durrcll and 
Bill Beard, former backstops at Hill and 
I'^xeter respectively. 

Track Prospects Bright 
Don .loncH, from Madison High, will be 
out for first base. Among the infield can- 
didates are George Becker, Bob .Sommer, 
F'inlay Koss, Ale.x Cameron, Amos.Sharetts, 
.Miram Van Home. Otherassignmeiits will 
he chosen from .lohnny Wardwell, Dan 
Whileley, Dave Hall, former 
leader, F'rank Caulk, .\pplelon Seaverns, 
Irving MacPher.son, and Bill Hayward.>ecls for the three meet track 
scliedijle ap[)car bright as over twenty ex- 
perienced candidates have been working 
out for I he past week. .Spriniersare Pete 
(lallagher, of Thacher, .lolinuy Alilierley, 
22i) record holder at Poly Prep, and Roger 
Moore, who is also a hurdler, from West- 
minster. Fred Linxweiler and Roger 
Crowe have been training for the middle 
distances while .Johnny Marshall, inter- 
scholastic mile ehamiiion of Virginia, and 
.lini (Jregory, cousin of Ihe Varsity captain, 
will ct'oipclc in tho aiilo run. 

Two of the heftiest memliers of their 
class. Tad Fairbanks of Loomis, and 
.Iiihnny .Xhherley will be on the shots, and 
.lohnny .-Milstrom from Pawling and 
.Iiihnny -Mtemus, from .St. .lames, are hani- 
iner llirowers. High jumpers include 
Tony Menkel, Bill Stoddard and the long- 
legged F'ord Ballantyne, from last year's 
Decrfield Gunnery, and Asheville teams 

Coach Tony will also have three 
experienced jiolc vaullers in Bernie -Xuer, 
Bruce Coffin, and ImI Wheeler. Roger 
Crowe will be broadjumping and Rusty 
Brewer, with his Governor Dummcr record 
of His feel, is cinched for a chance in the 
javelin throw. 

Jarvis Leads Tennis Squad 
It is not hazardous to predict the slrong- 
esl FVesliinan tennis team in a number of 
years. The numlier one jiosition is waiting 
hir .M .larvis, who among other things is 
junior Indoor national cliain))ion. Ranked 
high on fall's ladder were Gaynor 
Collester, Bruce Bnrnham. .liin Burns and

Dave .lohnston, cx-Deerfield Captain, 
Gordon CMark, Loomis singles star, and a 
large nuniher of others.

Cfirn to the sea-gulls. I am not so sure 
that the sea-gulls digest ixip-eorn very 
readily. Considering the fact that the 
play consisted mainly of talk and very 
little drama, the players carried it off very 
well. The jmrts were portrayed with less 
self-consciousness than is usually the case

than which there is nothing more difficult.

their own kind is that of "getting across" a

Drastic Changes in Forum Board 
Proposed Under New Constitution 

A recommendation to the 1037 I'lider-

ment levied on each social group by the 
(liUieliiiriiJiiiin not he paid next year was 
unanimously approved by the Iil3li Coun- 
cil in its last meeting. The Council also 
approved the suggestion of the Managers' 
Association that the awarding of insignia 
ill Varsity football, basketball, baseball, 
hockey, lacrosse, and cross-countr.y be left 
to the discretion of tbe coaches, the captain 
and the managers, and that the presenta- 
tion of F'reshman numerals in all sports 
should be [ilaced on the same basis as the 
Varsity award. 

This drastic move by the outgoing 
Couiieil is the result of a long-festering in- 
dignation among the social groups because 
of the dis]iarity in fees paid by the Athletic 
Council, the Student Activities Council, 
and the members of the Undergraduate 
Council, accor(Jing to George D. Forney 
'30, president of the 1930 Council. While 
the various houses and the Garfield Club 
pay a total assessment of over $(iO().(K), 
neither the Athletic Council nor the Stu-

space in the d'ul as the social groups, pay 
over $200.

By unanimous decision of two judges

debates gained a victory over the Adelphic 
Union as R()bert North and John Casste- 
vens defended the affirmative of the ques- 
tion licnolveil, That this house favors the

buttal for each team. 

"We are asking statehood for the terri- 
tory because we are ready for statehood," 
declared Casstevens. His outline of the 
history of Hawaii emphasized the basis of

were admitted to the Union in 1898. M

tbe members of the I93IJ and 1937 F\irum

the presentation of speakeia to the college 
by the now -existing Forimi is inadequate"

^Symposium on New Williams'' Termed '■Admirable'' 
By Professor Miller in Reviewing March 'Sketch'' 

(The foUoiring remcw of Ihc March ismic 
of 'Sketch' wan wrillen for The Recoiii) 
through the coiirteKi/ of Dr. John W. Miller 
of the Philosophy fleporl merit.) 

In the March Sketch Brockwav has a 
story called ".Something to Live For". 
It tells about an ohl mjm bereft of earthly 
ties of blood and friendship but craving 
some human recognition, and finding some 
pathetic scraps of it in the "Thank y(«i, 
Mr. Jones" which he received when al- 
lowing another to precede him to the bar- 
ber's chair. So he went for a hair cut 
every week, and at the busiest time on 
Saturday afternoon when the opportunity 
for waiving his rights tmder the strict 
unwritten laws of barber shops were at a 
maximum. He had to have s«)mething 
besides solitude. He wanted to be 
elTective, not as one whose name is writ on 

This theme of Brockwa.v's story under- 
lies Br^gy's contributicm to the admirable 
symposium on the New Williams. Br#gy 
writes about the curriculum, and, since he 
is concerned with that elusive ideal called 
the liberal arts college, he wonders how the 
varied materials presented coidd make a 
difference in the thought and will of the 
student. He acutely points out that 
what Francis Bacon called "elegant 
learning" is no different from the practical 
or technical otudies pursued in a hiuinees 

♦ school or at M.I.T. Both are ulililarian, 
since both arc viewed not for .some intrinsic 
.siitisfaction but as a means to success or 
))leasure. He rejects the "cducjition for 
leisiiie" theory, and (phte rightly. In a 
book called Beauty Looks after Herself 
Erie (iill observes: "The free man does 
what he likes in his wiirking time, and in 
his spare time what is required of him; 
the slave doe.s what he is obliged to do in 
bis working time, and what he likes to do 
only when he is not at work." The fact 
that an.yone should view education as the 
attainment of pleasant elegance, or as the 
aerpiisition of materials for plejusant self- 
indulgence, bespeaks the difliculty we all 
feel in undei'stjinding the n'levance of 
liliernl studies to the will. 

On this point Bn'-gy does not go as far 
as one might wish; b\it he does clearly see 
that a college is not primarily an intellec- 
tual or emotional bazaar, and that some- 
how its design is to make a man over as 
a man in order to give him sensitiveness 
to the \ssws of the da.v. He ol)ser\'e8 that 
the new science course is of more educa-

formal gadgets. The present curriculum

content. But one might think of subjects

resented in the curriculum, or of the r»-

No. 3 

With tliis issue 'I'liK Hiocoitu suspfiuis publication until April 11. 

TiiK Rkcoiid lakes great pleasure in announeing that, as a result of 
the first competition for the class of 1939, James MacClrenor liurns, of 
Winchester, .Miis.saehiisetts; I'Vaiik (looilrow (lilletl, of I'elliaiu .Main)r, 
New York; William Arthur McCoiinell, of Brooklyn, New York; Anlhtiny 
Martin Menkel, Jr., of OndeiisburK, New York; and Woodward Hiuld 
Norton, of Hector, New York, have been elected to the I'Mitorial Hoard. 
The editors wish to thank (lie oilier competitors for their work during 
the conij)etition. 


Three important changes are involved in (he recent reorpmization 
of (he Foruin: first, tlie inclusion of three faculty nieinbers on the Hoard; 
second, llie automatic appoinlrnent of the heads of the W'.C.A. and the 
Liberal C'luh to active inembeiship plu.^ the po.ssibili ly of elect iii{»; the heads 
of other organizations; and third, a notable innovation on our campus, 
the elimination of any organized competition. 

In view of the pieponderiince of profe.s.sors and their wives in every 
Forum audience, the first of, the inclusion of faculty mendiei's, one 
from each division of the curricidum, seems to be at least the part of 
gratitude if not of prudence. But it is prudent too, since, by affording a 
recognized channel through which the various departments can propose 
lecturers, it would .seem to point the way to talk.s by noted scholars, in 
various fields whose very ijrominencc would give them universal appeal. 
I The automatic appointment of the heads of the W.C.A. and the Lib- 

eral Club to the Board oidy recognizes that these two organizations have 
particular interest in securing speakers. And the possible appearance of 
a like (lemaiul on the part of other organizations is taken into consitlcr- 
ation l>y the clause of the new constitution that provides for the election to 
the Board of other organization-heads. 

Then, lastly, the doing away with the competition has plain advan- 
tages. First, as now run, the competition is rather long-drawn and 
unproductive, involved alniosl entirely with poster-posting and ushering, 
all the business of soliciting speakers having this year been precluded to 
the competitors. Second, the eternal conipet with his all too obvious 
"ulterior motive" is eliminated — the eternal compet for whom the im- 
portant thing about a Forum Competition is not that it is for the "Forum" 
but that it is a "competition". 

Competitions presmnably are to discover the prospective member's 
aptitude for and interest in, the work he will be required to do. Then, 
how, comes the question, will the new Forum be able to deternune what 
men are qualified for membership? Will it not look to the results of other 
ctmipetitions? The answer to the latter question is, most unfortunately 
l)ut most probably. Yes. The change, however, is not to be regarded as 
the perfect solution but only as an improvement; and such it must be con- 
ceded to be. For, the matter of judgment is hardly less difficult where a 
good Forum man must be chosen from a competition that reveals the good 
ushers and the good poster-pasters, than where he must be chosen on the 
basis of no competition at all. 

There is one qualification, however, that is determined better by 
competitions than in any other way, and the longer and more tedious 
they are the better. This qualification is interest. What is to protect 
the Forum against enlisting a group of mendiers who, having been elected 
through no wish of their own, are inefficient if not useless they 
lack incentive? This question the new constitution faces boldly, pro- 
viding, somewhat cynicallj' perhaps, that the officers of the Forum shall be 
chosen from the Junior Board by the Senior Board just before the retire- 
ment of the latter; which simply means that the Juniors will be fired to 
good work by the hope of some day becoming president of the Williams 
Forum with all the attendant glories. 

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and we must wait and see 
what happens. But the new set-up looks like an improvement and what 
looks like good pudding usually is just that.

orKiinizatidn of materials so us t(i make 
them more relevant to will and cliaraoter. 
"Knowledge," aay.s Whitehead, "doesn't 
keep any better the fish." The under- 
graduates know that, as the article pointa 
out. To make knowledge relevant seems 
to make it technical and vocational; the 
liberal arts training is not vocational; it 
aims at iinlliinK specific; what doesn't aim 
at specific skill seems sentimentally 
general and vague; how, then, to he both 
liberal iind elTective. Such is Brogy's 
prohlem. It is a valid problem, and 
thoughtfully presented. 

There arc four other article^s on the 
New Williams; McConnell on exlra-ctir- 
ricular activities, Murpl'y "" sports, 
Brocknay on social |)rot)lems, and Klias on 
(liscipHne. McConnell writes with his 
usual clarity, gives details anti a level 
head. One expect* that after such 
thoughtful Recorp editorials as his have 
been. Brocknay makes an intelligent 
nurvey of the ejimpus cluh problem, gmnl 
realism and good thoiry. Me is one of the 
few whf> know that these are the name 
thing. Murphy probably had a hard 
topic, t)ut his treatment of sjKirtfl is sport- 
ing in its fairness. Klias considers the 
place in the administration of discipline of 
some one officer, sympathetic and im- 

partial, in his relations with the student 
and with some larger committee. 

"Edgar," a story liy L.vncli, supports 
the gratification felt over his "White Boy 
in search of Christ". Edgar is the myopic 
ant who can't bear synthesis, generaliza- 
tion, and the risk of conscious large views. 
He is the cautious atomist, made intoler- 
ably nervous by any general impression. 
He won't look out of the window at the 
"wonderful of the city in the sun- 
light, murmuring as it worked". He 
could see <mly "millions of little bricks". 
This attitude is more common than might 
be supposed. I meet it often; for example, 
when once incautiously asking what cen- 
tral ideas could lead to an understanding 
of the American or of Americjin history. 
My head was bloody (hut unhowe<l) in balf 
a minute. But it is nice to see Edgar tbus 
objectified. And bynch does it nt)t 
through alistract analysis hut, properly, 
through the specification of particular 

There are other stories, and the one of 
Brockway's called "Something To Live 
For" referred to Bt)ovc is a delicate piece 
of work. Brpgy'a "And Quite Forget" 
seems to me insufficiently motivated, and 
for that reason the psychological analysis 
doesn't quite come off. At the end there 
is a murder: "The jioker swung again, and 
this time sank into Henry's skull as he 
was turning to flee." That sort of thing 
has to be prepared for, or else it is too easy

binder, I think, is also too anxious to gel 
life in the raw in his story "Voice in die 
Fog". 1 1 is said of the heroine "Mir

her to lie with him iiighl after night. Ili'

IH'ciully if binder and Hregy ahouUl be

There i.s no use trying to say something 
uboul all the items in this issue, although I 
woul<l like space for the poems. It is 
plain, however, that the college olTers nuicli 
better instruction in the understanding uf 
ideas and of prose forms than of poetry. 
Most sludenl |K)elry seems to gel terribly

Why can't poets be as responsible In Ibcir 
ideas as ordinary people? It would be 
pleasant to find poetry as good as the 
essays or the stories.

respect for the ability of undergraduates.

through this delightful farce with a zest

I can only say that wc should be grateful

By Francis Boardman, Jr. '38 

GiKlit lellerincii iiml one sopliomorc will 
iiiltiato Williiiiiis' newest biisehiill season 
at Princetdii next Tiiesilay when tliey meet 
the Tiger nine at the start of a four K'lme 
spring trip for wliieh Cliarley Caldwell 
yeslerilay selected tifteen jilayers. Walt 
Fuehs is slated for the mound assiuiiment 
while Harry iStevens and .lohnny lial- 
diUKer, only other iiurlers who will make 
the trip, will be held in reserve. 

The S(|uad will meet at Princeton for 
practice on Monday afternoon. Tuesday 
and Wednesday K"mes have been sched- 
uled with the first Princeton nine which 
Bill Clark has coached following a seven 
year absence. The next day, the team 
moves on to Bethlehem, to i)lay Lehigh 
and Friday to Easton for the final en- 
counter with I.ehifjh, another member of 
the Middle Three. 

Team Outlook Is Confident 

Cai)tain Bill Moseley's extraordinarily 
confident outlook was not shared com- 
pletely by Coach Caldwell, but it reflects a 
Kenerally felt spirit among team members 
which should carry them a long way and 
provide plenty of excitement during the 
coming season. 

Following is a list of the fifteen who were 
chosen from the squad of nearly forty who 
have been working out for the past three 
weeks: Baldinger, Bryant, Forbes, Fuchs, 
Latvis, Moseley, Patterson, Salsich, Sim- 
mons, Stanley, Stanton, D. Stearns, P. 
Stearns, II. Stevens, and Slingerland. 
Fundamentals Stressed in Practice 

In j)reparation for the vacation trip and 
the ensuing fifteen game schedule, the 
squad luiscompletcdjust a week of outdoor 
practice. Most of the coaching emphasis 
lias been ])laced on infield and batting 
practice although a few innings of straight 
ball have been played. 

Thursday afternoon's practice game saw 
the team which will probably start on 
University Field this Tuesday. Bill Mose- 
ley, hard-pegging catcher, was in his usual 
post while Tom Bryant, who alternated 
with Ted Hapgood a year ago, held down 
first base. "Rabbit" Forbes, on second. 
Hank Stanton at short, and Eddie Stanley 
at third rounded out the infield. 

Harry Stevens, heaviest hitter on last 
year's outfit and veteran twirler, was in 
left field. Doug Stearns, only sophomore 
to win a starting berth, occu])ied the oppo- 
site side of the field and Pete Salsich 
patrolled the center. 

Infield reserves who will go on the early 
season trip are Bob Patterson, Mike I.atvis, 
and Phil Stearns, whose recent finger in- 
jury will not ruin his chances for first. 
F'ielding Simmons will serve as relief back- 
stop while Hank Slingerland and Johnny 
Baldinger, pitcher, can be used in the out- 

The new batting order reveals Stanley 
as lead-oft man, Doug Steams, the only 
left handed batter on the team, second and 
Stevens in the clean up position. The re- 
maining hatting order for the Princeton 
clash indicates Stanton, Moseley, Forbes, 
Bryant, Salsich, and Fuchs. 

A year ago, when the team played six 
games, the Tiger series was split and La- 
fayette was defeated, with the Purple 
succumbing to I-ehigh.

Lack of facilities for winter practice and

Golf Trip During Vacation 
Called Off at Last Minute 

Athletic Council Refuses Sanction 

Following Two Week Delay 

Regarding Issue 

Two weeks' tlelay by the Athletic Coun- 
cil in deliberation of t he proposed Varsity 
golf team's southern trip during vacation 
proved fatal Tuesday, when, on the advice 
of Graduate Manager A. \^. Osterhout, 
Captain Di<'k Dodge cancelled all plans, 
and the tour was definitely shelved. 

Mr. Osterhout, whose long absence from 
Williainstown left the Council helpless to 
act, rejected the list of players submitted 
to him, deciding that the group was not 
sufficiently strong to represent Williams 
officially unless the opposing colleges were 
informed of its weakness. He thus 
<leemed it necessary to advise the opposing 
colleges of the composition of the team, hut 
since the scarcity of time seemed to ))re- 
vent further negotiations, Dodge and 
Osterhout finally discarded the trip alto- 

Delay of Council Causes Action 

Whether the Council, wliich had twice 
granted "official final" sanction to the trip 
before withdrawing it Tuesday, feared that 
the team, without all the leltermen on it, 
would be defeated too badly in the matches 
or whether it did not wish to "insult" 
Southern hospitality by .sending down a 
team not representing full strength, could 
not be learned from Mr. Osterhout. At 
any rate, the Graduate Manager, in his be- 
lated rejection of the list of golfers, decided 
that Dodge must warn Georgetown, North 
Carolina and Virginia of the Purple's weak- 
ness. Then, if they should still want to 
carry out the scheduled practice encoun- 
ters, the Athletic Council would give its 
permission to the trij). However, with 
only three days to communicate with the 
other colleges, it was decided advisable to 
call everything off. 

"Even though four members of the 
varsity were unable to make the trip, they 
were going to be South, getting practice, 
anyhow," said Captain Dodge, "and the 
idea of the trip was not to win matches, 
but to get other members of the squad in 
shape !ot the regular season, which begins 
too soon after vacation for adecpiate condi- 
tioning on our return to college. Since 
Mr. Osterhout's absence had delayed pro- 
ceedings so long, his eventual rejection of 
the list made it inadvisable to go through 
with it." 

Disgruntled memliers of the team, spec- 
ulating as to the reason for the Council's 
opinion that the gro\ip was too weak, could 
find no cause except for the board's fear 
of the golfers making a [wor showing. Ab 
Ellis, former college champion, who with 
Dodge conceived the idea of making the 
trip, said, "It was understood by ourselves 
and the other teams that the matches were 
entirely for practice. You cnuhl take the 
six lipst golfers they ever had here, and it 
wouldn't make any difference if they 
hadn't been playing all winter." 

that week he v.n» arrested for inciting 
riots in connection with a New York cloth- 
ing strike. On the grounds that he was 
merely engaged in "jieaceful picketing", 
Mr. Thomas is planning to bring miit

The Big The ball teum starts South next 
Swing Monday with u group of (iflccii 
of the finest anil plenty of high 
hopes. The sudden turn for the better in 
the weather lias been the menus of rapidly 
whipping the team into shai)e and letting 
them get out to get the feel of the mud. 
and they have worked fast while the sun 
lasted. Ill the lew innings of practice 
games the pitchers showed up way out in 
froiil, which is only natural after the pie- 
limiiiary cage work. Some of I he boys 
managed to recapture their oKI form in 
(piick time and Hank Stanton drilled out a 
triple the first time al hat, while lOddie 
Stanley and Uahliit Forbes also looked 
nice at the dish. 

The problem for the spring trip, aside 
from the ever pre.sent consideration of 
pitchers is to get the greatest bitting power 
concentraled into the smallest iiunilicr. 
So far it looks jiretty good; the iidield all 
are .shaping up fast, Fuchs and Stevens 
are always sure hitters, and the substitutes 
such as the Stearns', Simmons, and Mike 
l.atvis are all i)retty handy willi the wil- 
low. Cai)tain Billy has been due for (piilc 
a while now and this really does look like a 
good year tor bini. lie's a powerful bitter 
when he hits, but it's tlic frecnieiicy tliat 

.\ll in all it hioks like a better team going 
down this year than last; the inlield shifts 
of Stanton to short and Forbes to second 
with Stanley holding down the hot corner

joined in prc-s(!aHon workouts under Coach 
Whoops Snively in the cage and on the

It was feared that weather Cdiiditioiis 
would confine the prospective scpwd mem-

when ground conditioned on the flood- 
eoveied Cole Field would be suitable for 
practice down there. However, ict^ent 
fair weather has allowed short wnrk-oiitis

been the center of conceiilialion.

of Hawaii. The artificiality of the issue 
raised by the .lones-Costigan bill, which he 
declared replaced the promise of statehood, 
was condemned. "The labor and race sit- 
uation," he said referring to the plantation 
system, "will not be best served by state- 

In the cross-examination by George D. 
Forney '30 of Casstevens the latter em- 
phasized the absence of race riots and the 
fact that Hawaiian prosperity has bem 
due almost entirely to the judiciousness i f 
the island legislattrj. McConnell, wl en 
questioned by North, asserted the danger 
t ) statehood from the complex race situa- 
tion, to which the latter retaliated by cit ii g 
similar conditions in Boston and New 

In the rebuttal for the negative Forney 

stressed the question "What is to be 
Haineil?" with the mention iif "Stat«luM)d 
overridden" by the present administra- 
tion, republican government versus feudal 
upbringing, and further involving the 
rnited States in the I'aeitic. 

"Why should not Hawaii be given repre- 
84'ntalion with taxation?" asked North in a 
rebuttal which stressed that social asix'cts 
would not be affected by political cliange. 
The ,Iai>ani'se, he asserted, can only reach 
a proportion of thirty imt cent to the total 
population, and race ilifTerences do not 
iiffi'ct voting ill the territory.

Did you ever 
notice the difference 

in the aroma of 
Chesterfield tobacco? 

Every person who knows about 
tobacco will understand this... 
for to get a pleasing aroma is 
just like getting a pleasing taste 
from fruit. 

Mild ripe tobaccos, home- 
grown, and welded with the 
right kind of tobacco from far-off 
Greece and Turkey (Samsoun, 
Smyrna, Xanthi and Cavalla) . . . 

. . . that'^s why Chesterfield 
has a more pleasing aroma.

Socialism Only Way to Avoid Disaster, 

Thomas States in Chapin Hall Address 


Dead, Reformer Tells 

His Audience 

Austin Broadhurst '38 

"We «liiill drift to new economic dis- 
iiBler. There \k iiothinx in slxlit to Kive 
hope unless the peojjle of America lake a 
ureal stride toward SocialiBni," Mr, Nor- 
man Thomas, perennial SocialiBt presiden- 
tial candidate, prophesied in answer to the 
question, "After the New Deal- What?", 
posed as the subject of his lecture Wednes- 
day evening in (Jhapin Hall. A lar^e and 
responsive audience heard Mr. Thonuis 
jm'dict tlic downfall of Capitalism and 
plead for action by the younger genera tion 
of .•\nierica in his speech presented under 
the auspices of the Liberal Club. 

■The question, 'After the New Deal — 
What?', ap|)lies right now," Mr. Thomas 
stilled. "Whatever happens in the elec- 
liiiii of November, l!)3ti, we (mn already 
spciik of the New Deal, as it took shape in 
tlic lirst two years of Roosevelt's adminis- 
ttMtion, ill the past tense," the eminent 
Siicialisl continued, heartened by l'rofes.sor 
Cliiirles I.. Safford's spirited rendition of 
"Thelnteriialioiiaie" on the organ asu pre- 
lude to Mr. Thomas's remarks. 
New Deal Dead 

Comparing the economics of the New 
Deal to the method of keeping a man from 
frt'czing to death by ruiming him around in 
cin^les, Mr. Thomas <leclared that the New 
Deal died because it lost the consent on 
which it was based, because the Supreme 
Ciiiirt reasserted itself, and because of the 
New Deal's economic failure to provide 
jirosperity or even recovery. "The Su- 
preme Court," Mr. Thomas said, "has as- 
serted that no goveriim<!iit has the [Miwer 
to do what Mr. Roosevelt attempted to do 
and that no government has the power to 
act to remedy social or economic condi- 

"Our government is not a true democ- 
racy but one in which the Supreme Court 
says that our electe<l representatives have 
no power to act in an emergency," Mr. 
Thomas continued. "Ours is, in the last 
analysis, a government by the Supreme 
Court or, more accurately, by a written 
constitution interjireted by a majority of 
the Supreme Court." 

"I was no mourner at the burial of 
N.R.A. The bird was alrea<ly groggy,"

Glee Club Visits Nassau, 
Bermuda During Vacation 

Four Concerts, Music by Knights 

Feature Nine-day Cruise 

On 'Britannic' 

Four concerts at sea and ashore com- 
prised the successful Nassau-Bermuda 
cruise enjoyeil by thirty members of the 
Glee Club and the Purple Knights during 
spring recess. Manager Frederick A 
dePeyster '36 stated that the financial 
result was a profit of about four hundred 
dollars, divided among the members of t he 
organization, as compared to the api)roxi- 
mately two hundred dollar gain of last 
year's trip to Nassau. 

Dr. and Mrs. Paul Birdsall and Dr. John 
H. Rol>erts accompanied the club which 
sailed from New York on the Cunarder 
"Britaimic" on the evening of Friday, 
March 27. Nassjiu was reached the 
following Monday morning after a mill- 
pond voyage largely spent in rehearsing. 
A large audience attended the concert at 
the .lungle Club that evening; official 
mourning, however, caused the alisence of 
Governor-general and Lady Clifford. Mrs 
Levy kindly invited the undergraduates 
to use the magnificent swimming pool at 
her estate during their visit at the island. 

The departure on Tuesday noon began 
the Bermuda run, on which the "Britan- 
ic's" passengers were entertained by 
another Glee Club concert that evening 
and the Purple Knight.s, who played daily 
for tea and evening dancing, with a cos- 
tume ball Wednesday night. 

The arrival in Hamilton harbor Thurs- 
day noon wiia followed by a concert on 
the same evening in the Colonial Ojiera before a small audience, after which 
the club gave its most successful perform- 
ance of the cniise in the grill room of the 
Hotel Hamilton, where they sang three 
numbers in return for free refre-shmenta at 
the invitation of the manager, Mr. WimkIs. 
This rendition was extremely well re- 
ceived by the patrons of the hotel, .\fter 
the departure from Bermuda late Friday 
afternoon the first rough weather of the 
cruise was encountered, and continued 
until the arrival in New York on Sunday, 
April 5. 

The next concert will be in conjunction 
with the Vassar Glee Club in Chapin 
Hall on April 25, followed by a dance at 
the Williams Inn with music by the Pur- 
ple Knights. Approximately seventy girls 
are expected to make the trip to Williams- 

Far Reaching Changes For Next Year s 

Curriculum Meet Over Forty Courses 

Christian Association To 
Hold Embassy Next Week 

Visiting Clergymen Will Organize 

Discussions in Garfield Club 

And Fraternities 

14 Courses Not Offered This 

Year To Be Presented 

In September 

.Successful last year at WilllHins and 
other Eastern colleges, the Williams 
Christian .Association will again conduct 
an Emba.ssy tit take place Monday and 
Puesday, April 13 and 14. Sixteen men 
associated with the church will lead dis- 
cussion groups in the Garfield Club and 
the fifteen fiaternily bouses where they 
have been invited to stay during the two- 
day period. 

"Building a Philosophy of Life" is the 
.subject chosen by the W. C. A. for the 
Emba.ssy. As the Embassy last year wa.s 
criticised as being too religious in nature, 
the Executive Committee has endeavored 
to select a subject which will .stress the 
importance of practical living and not 
resolve into purely religious arnuments. 
The men wlio will head the discussions 
are all young, and have shown sympathy 
with college problems, two of them being 
Williams gnuluate.s themselves. 
Nature of Discussions 

The discussions, open to all members of 
the S(jcial groups, will start immediately 
following dinner with a short talk by the 
Embassy representative and will 1)6 fol- 
lowed l)y questions from the undergrad- 
uates. .\t K.15 there will be a brenk in the 
talk so that those pressed by work may 
leave, and afterwards, informal discussions 
are to be held for those who remain. 

On both days the program is to be very 
much the same with the discussions in the 
evening and Informal contacts during the 
day. These informal meetings between 
the undergraduates and the Christian 
workers, stated John D. Reeves '37, presi- 
dent of the \V. C. A., proved invaluable 
last year. Ree»es also declared that the 
Christian Association, in conducting the 
Embassy, Is not trying to reform anyone 
or to inflict religious ideas on the student 
body, but is merely giving the college an 
opportunity to discuss life and Its phi- 
losophy with men who, by the very nature 
of their work, are qualified to put fortli 
ideas which possibly the classroom has

Catalogue issued on Tuesday. The al- 
terations have been made In a carefully 
studied effort to correlati^ more efficiently 
the c(jursc!s whit'h will be taken under the 
new major set ups and comprehensive 
system of exam I nations. 

A total of fourteen <'ourses not iiffered 
this year arc announced for 193(i-37 while 
a number of otlau- (bourses have been so 
drastically rrajrgaiiized that they are vir- 
tually new. Most vitally affected of 
next year's courses are those in CJeology, 
Physics. Economics and Latin, while 
five of the seveuteen departments have 
made only .slight alterations. Every de- 
partment In wlilcli a major is offered has 
mailc provLslon for a .lunior Honors course. 
In some cases, however, there Is no under- 
graduate who will be qualified to take such 
work next fall. 

The new College Bulletin also reveals 
that seniors taking honors work and .J\mlors 
who are candidates for the honors degree 
will not be re<iuired — as will all others— to 
attend the last secular exercise before, and 
the last secular exercise after College 
holidays and recesses. 

From what was at first a bewildering 
compilation of renamed, renumlicred, and 
reorganized courses — bracketed and un- 
bracketed — the following can he ascer- 

(1) Eight completely new courses are to 
be offered ; 

(2) Six others not given this year will be 
offered ; 

(3) Two presented this year have been 

(4) Six .Senior courses have become 
.Junior courses and three .Junior have been 
ojwned to Sojihomores. History 5-6, 
formerly a Sophomore course, is listed as a 
Junior course.

Perhaps tlip most (iuliidus of the iuliiiinislralivc chanKCs vorifipd in 
the new Collenc calalonue is that involving tlie swiiiiiiiinK-cdach, Mr 
Charles L. Ciraliaiii, whose successor is "to be announced" and who thus 
hriiiKs to a close with the completion of this term a career of fourteen 
years at W'illiaiiis, From the viewpoint of the undoiftraduatcs who are 
aware only of a icctu'd for successful teams and clean sportsmanship and of 
a cheerful and warmhearted personality, Mr. Graham's departure appears 
somewhat m yst ifyinn. 

Inteiestinn innovation niimher two is the lifting from juniors and 
seniors in the Honors field of the prohibition against cutting the last class 
before or the first class after recesses. This revival of an old policy is at 
the same time in complete accord with a trend of the new administration — 
a trend Tiik Hkcohd continues to regard as thoroughly .sound. There 
seems to be nothing about the specified secular exercises themselves to 
make them less deserving of cuts than any others; in fact, they are prob 
ably more so, with the minds of both instructor and student full of en- 
ervating dreams of home and holiday. By such changes as these we 
.students are forced to believe that the administration has faith in us. 

Finally there are the changes in the curriculum itself, arising for the 
most part out of the revision of the Honors Work system, of which enough 
if not too much has already been said. Predictions on this score have 
been made which now must wait upon actual developments. It only 
need be noted with considerable rejoicing that Williams' educational op- 
portunities are next year to be broadened to the extent <jf adding eight 
new ct)urses and uiibrackcting six, with only two of the courses given this 
year being in turn bracketed. 


Williams College is indebted to Norman Thomas and the Liberal 
Club for one of the most entertaining speeches delivered in Chapin Hall in 
some time, Mr. Thomas, knowing his audience, wisely concentrated on a 
criticism of the status quo rather than conversion to the Socialist dream. 
And "ribald Republican laughter" applauded his shrewd thrusts at the 
Grand Old Party with scarcely less enthusiasm than that which followed 
his attack on the "late New Deal" — a tribute both to the brilliant irony 
of the speaker and the objectivity of his hearers' sense of humor. 

Mr. Thomas, although more of a realist than many of his fellow- 
radicals, occasionally took refuge in easy prophecy. It is comforting to 
know, for example, that the evils of bureaucracy cannot arise under a 
Socialist regime. Again, when we are warned that American fascism will 
wear sheep's clothing, it does not seem too far-fetched to suggest that 
Socialism itself might be used as a blind for that particular type of 
tyranny. After all, Nazi is a nickname for National Socialist. Mr. 
Thomas himself admits that once Socialism is in the saddle, it may be 
necessary to take liberties with the civil liberties, which at present are 
maintained partly through the attitude of our "oligarchic" Supreme 

To the Williams audience, the most significant part of the address 
was Mr. Thomas's forecast of disaster facing the country through renewed 
depression, war, and fascism. There are many today representing all 
shades of political coloring who are echoing this fear. Others, including 
both cynics who look at the past and optimists who have faith in the 
future, expect that America and the world will muddle through once more. 
It is an overwhelmingly important issue. If Rome is going to burn, we 
might as well tune up our fiddles — or even go so far as to replenish our 



Vacation Despite our little snowstorm of 
Agenda Monday, SpriiiR seems pretty 
well established at last. .lust 
before vacation, a naive freshman burst in 
to announce the first robin, seen down by 
the Haystack Monument. The way Konk 
knows it's Spring, thouKli, is when the 
chemistry majors come out of hibernation 
to stroll in the sini along Laboratory Walk. 
Jack Dingwall, burly Cap and Bells men- 
tor, who usually reserves his campus ap- 
pearances these days to his moments be- 
hind Chapin footlights, even was seen lead- 
ing the current Back to Bock movement in 
the Gym I.unch with henchman Hahn, 

Spring fever has started its annual in- 
roads; one of the funniestexamples of this 
came the other day when a junior drifted 
off in one of the higher (!reek classes. He 
was the only man in the class. Our inertia 
has even invaded the Liberal Club enthus- 
iast, Norman Thomas, who said more in 
five minutes than Strachcy did in over an 
hour, only had half the audience which 
pileil in .Icsup last autumn to hear the 
goofl-looking, itieffectual Communist sjjeak. 

Current vacationers conduct seems to 
have lieen, on the whole, rather above the 
average. One ex-Willianisite stowed away 
on the Glee Club's Bermuda jaunt, only to 
be discovered (gastronomically depleted by 
a restricted diet ) when leaving the boat at 
New York hartxir. Dow n at Tom Moore's 
island things went along with the usual 
pre-Ea«t<>r rush ; the Bermudiana's .Silver 
Grill was jamme<l, local athletes peddled to 
St. George's when the bree7.e was behind 

them, and the Princess and White Horse 
Tavern bars were reasoiuibly busy 

There was some little trouble down at 
Hot Springs, where a few of our tennis and 
golf players gathered to get in shape for 
the current season. Everything went 
along pretty smoothly at the Homestead 
(where a room is sixteen iron men a day 
and a "drink" is Liebfraumilch or I^anson 
'26) until the last evening, when the boys 
astounded smart society by trying Rockne 
T-formations up the sedate lobby. The 
other evenings, we heard, were compara- 
tively reserved, though one caustic ob- 
server remarked that the linksmen were 
none too early in setting out for the excel- 
lent Cascade layout and the racquet- 
w-ielders were said to have done most of 
their training on the as-tout-cas courts in 
the afternoon. That is, up until cocktail 
hour (from five o'clock on -every hour on 
the hour).

selves, recuperating from the barrage of

TELEPHONE engineers had to find a way to stop gray 
squirrels gnawing holes in the lead sheath of tele- 
phone cables. Even a tiny hole may let in moisture — short 
circuit the wires — and put a number of telephones out of 
service temporarily- 
Many ideas were tried, but the squirrels gnawed on. 
Finally the cables were painted with blauk asphaltiiin and 
sprinkled with sand. The gnawing stopped. 

Not a major engineering problem, to be sure. But thou- 
sands of strange little problems, too, have been solved to 
assure you the world's most reliable telephone service. 

Why not call your folks more often.'

Ihe I'lirpli' eiiuMned with a 17-10 vietory 
and a I'-'-all lie in the series at I'rlnceton, 
while the Kami's with Lehigh and Lafayette 
were eaiii'i'lleil beeaiise of bad weather. 

Kddie Stanley, l>ms Stearns, and Harry 
SleveiiB, proved (heir rinhl to positions at 
llie til]) of the baltiiiK list by spiting the 
paee for the lirsl name with three hits 
apiece aKuiiist four Tiner monndsmen. 
Walter Kvirlis, who went the route for the 
visiliiiK l'nr|)le, allowing 13 hits, eon- 
Irlbiited two safeties to his own cause, 
narrowly missing a home run in attempting 
til run out a safe triple. 

Tigers Attack 
Williams starleil out strong, getting 
.seven runs against the rrincelonian.s' four 
ill the lirsl two innings. By the end of the 
hiiirlli however, Ihe Tigers had stagei 
savage attack, which almost forced Fuchs 
liiim the box anil (miduced five dangerous 
runs to threaten the Williams lead. From 
lliis point on, however, Charley Caldwell's 
team bad tilings pretty much their own 
way, rellriiig one pitcher after another, in- 
cluding the experienced .lolinny Morris to 
run up a total of 17 runs. 

Captain Hill Moseley's two hits and sac- 
rifices drove in live runs for the victorious 
I'urple, while Hank Stanton drove out a 
triple and Rolf Paine, Tiger catcher, ham- 
mered out a homer in the ninth. A high 
wind blowing towards left field made it 
ilitfieult for the out fielders to judge the 
flight of the flies hit into that sector, with 
Ihe re.sult that numerous "easy outs" be- 
came douhles or three-baggers. 
Batting Spree 
Fete Salsich, with t liree base hil.s, led the 
I'iiri)le to its ten-inning tie with Princeton 
ill the second game of the series, which was 
called olT by darkncs.s after a wild hitting 
spree which totaled no less than 25 .safeties 
and left the teams deadlocked at. 12-12. 
The lead changed four limes in this game, 
ill which a five-run Puriile rally in Ihe 
eighth saved Harry Stevens from defeat. 

Every member of the Williams starting 
line-up succeeded in making at least one 
safe blow from the olTcrings of Dick Bell 
anil ,Ii)hniiy Hell, who shared Ihe Tiger 
hurling ilnlies. Eight bases on balls by 
Sipvens anil seven by Heichel contribuled 
heavily In Ihe high score of the game, in 
which the .score wius tied in Ihe sixth and 
eighth innings, and in which Williams in 
Ihe foiirlh had a lead of .5 to 1. 

Sloppy lieltling on the part of both 
teams, who proihiccd 12 errors, also made 
possible nimierous scores, while Harry 
Stevens was able to limit the Tiger activi- 
ties by alliiwing them only one extra-base 
hit all aflernoon, I. at vis and Stanton 
lining considerable damage with triples.

one advantage: the Homestead night life 
|)icked up. The .sedate bevy of musicians, 
who versatilely shift from Brahms to Ber- 
lin at the drop of a De Pinna derby, even 
played "The Music Goes Round" before 
the evening was out. The pre-debutantes 
swung ambitiously around the floor in Har- 
vard gyrations, while the |>ost-<lebutantes, 
quite naturally, were inclined to the well- 
known conservative Williams glide. The 
Roosevelt step was in keeping with his 
father's |M)licies~it was unlike anything 
ever seen before and you never could tell 
what was going to hapiien next. 

But now we're back in Williamatown, 
wondering if the rumor about Benny 
Cioodman at Houseparties is true and 
what's going to happen to Poi)eye's ,lee|). 

Flickers Jeanette MacDonald and Nel- 
son Edily turn up at the Walden 
this «pek-<'nd in liaae Mfirie, a noble effort 
Id duplicate their amazing success in 
Ndiighlij Marieltn. Their first hit, which 
was one of Cal's big five last seimon, wius 
probiibly better than this, we hear, though 
we haven't seen Hose Marie ourselves. 
Anyhow, it's sure to he way above the 
average runs of shows, and we urge a 
United Front. 


Although kept indoors Ihe greater part 
of the WM'k by heavy rains and the re- 
Hulling wet grounds, the Freshman spring 
Ki)orls teams gave encouraging signs o' 
KiiiTcssfiil campaigns to come after Iheir 
tirsl week of iirganiiied practice. The golf, 
lacrosse, and track squads have all had 
Iheir initial outdoor workouts while Ihe 
eanilidales for the ba.seliall and leiinis 
teams have been working out in Ihe gym 
anil cage between varsity priu'lices. 

Although only twenty-five baseball 
candidates have been repiirling regularly 
to Coach Hill Fowle, prospects have 
brightened considerubly, despite Ihe loss 
of thriH- players throiigli scholastie inel- 
igibility, by the showing of Ihe baltery

ward, Tony Wallace, Alec Carroll, deiirge 
Becker, and Pele .Seuy, who has starred 
for several .seasons al third base for 
Albany Academy. The mil field pnulice 
has been severely hampered by Ihe small 
size of the cage and only Dave Hall, who 
was an outstanding player on Ihe Ilolch- nine, seems certain of a starling as- 
.signment. Other promising compel ilois 
are F'inlay, Ed Nielmls. .\|>py 
Seaverns, and Ilowey Btisihman. 

Indications at present all poini to a 
succes-sfiil season for t^ Freshtnan track 
team. Roger Moore, wlm proved himself 
a one-man track team when he won Ihe 
Lehman Cup, Pete Gallagher, and ,lolm 
Abberley have all turned in good limes 
in the sprints on Ihe board track and Roger 
Crowe and F^red l.inxweiler should iliv 
velop into consistent [Xiint winners in the 
miilille distant events. 

The freshmen should have little to 
worry about also in the field events with 
Tad F^airbunks and ,lohn Abberley pulling 
the shot and .lohnny Ahlstrom and .lohn 
Altemus. former stars at Pawling and St. 
,James respectively, taking care of the 
hammer throwing. Likewise there is an 
abundance of material in both the broad 
and high jumps, with Tony Menkel and 
Bill Stoddard showing the way al present. 
Rusly Brewer, who has thrown the javelin 
l(i8 feet, likewise should prove to be 
a consistent winner this spring. 

The Freshmen golf and tennis teams 
both should be above the average this 
year and each contains an iiiitstaniling 
star. Al .larvis. National .lunior Indiior 
title holder, leads a promising group of 
experienced tennis players, while IJohby 
.lones, who is well known in amateur play 
in New York state, will be offering a strong 
threat for the number one |Misllion on the 
golf team. 

The first day of lacnisse practice on 
Cole Field revealed that, as usual. Coach 
Whoops Snively will have the task of 
developing a team from almost complclely 
inexperienced material. Dave Swanson, 
who starred al Poly Prep last year, Dave 
Fackler from the same school, and Vainly 
Vandiver are among the few who have 
played before and they will form Ihe nu- 
cleus of the learn. 


In spile of being ruined oiil one 
day and frozen out the next Ihe 
ball team's trip amunil its own 
lillle sti-awbcrry and cream ciiruit was 
quile a .success, opening the season with a 
17-10 win over the Tigers insured Ibiil. Il

of lough luck in the fourlli lliey gave him 
more supporl than Germany gave Hitler

Painc's bead. Mcnry didn't appreeialc

plenty of loiigb edges. The lirsl day's 
game had been long, bul this one broke all 
the records and left the cusloiners gasping. 
There were Hipine brilllaiil phiys and .siiine 
a.stotindingly awful ones wilh iieilher team 
bolhering lo play any faviirlles. The 
Rabbit, who h;id a lough day Ihe lirsl

Just for amu.scment the boys repealed the 
play about two minutes later and hail Ihe 
umpire muttering in his mask. 

As to the Umpire, lovingly referred to as 
"Blind Tom" by Ihe lads on the bench, 
there was some good natured cnmnieiil 
anent his mcthiMls of cidling balls anil 
strikes. As the afternoon wore on luid 
things got no better his temper follDwiHl 
the siuiie course and when someone finally 
remarked that the last "strike" had been 
stroked by the worms as it went by, he 
removed his cap and cud and informeil all 
who wouUI listen that he'll been nmiiiring

Dennett Mourns Loss Of 
Old Williams Individualism 

Also Tells of Centenary Program 

In Talks to Seven Various 

Alumni Groups 

In addreDses heard hy seven different 
alumni groups during the past three weeks 
Dr. Dennett has heen emphasizing the 
significance of next Octolier's Mark Hop- 
kins' Centenary program. Witliir the 
week preceding spring recess, the President 
unhamiiered liy flood conditions -Kp<ike in 
Minneapolis, Cincinnati, St. l.ouis, 
Clhicago, Pittshurgh and Washington, D.C. 
Last .Saturday he talked at the sixty-ninth 
annual Alumni Association ilinner in the 
I'liiversity Cluh at Boston. 

Dr. Dennett told the Boston group that 
he hoped Williams might regain under his 
leadership some of the old individualism 
and personality that characterized the era 
of Mark Hopkins. He regretted that "we 
have hecome more iiistituti<inalized at the 
ex|x?nse of individuality and personality" 
and descrilied the era which he hoped the 
college might recapture as one of eminent 
lawyers, doctors, and journalists us com- 
pared to present day eminent law firms, 
clinics and imiM'rsonal journalism. 

The college will strive to regain the good 
attrihules of the old college, without losing 
sight of new needs, he declared. 

Reviewing the college from an imme- 
diate standpoint, the President stated that 
income from investments indicated that a 
shrinkage of $1,,5(K).(K) may he faced next 
year. He also noted in regard to faculty 
appointments, that it was difficult to oh- 
tain men of vision and hroad hackground 
who were <iualified for Williams standards. 

Fascism, even though disguised, coining in 
America and warned his hearers that Cap- 
italism no longer had any political chance 
to reform. War and another even more 
terrihle economic collapse and worse poli- 
tical confusion Mr. Thomas also saw com- 
ing unless s<mietliiiig were done. 
Praises Future "Vets" 
"1 do not consider that the case is hope- 
less or 1 would not he talking," Mr. 
Thomas .said, declaring that "if the Vet- 
erans of Future Wars succeed in their pres- 
ent program, there is hope for the younger 
generation". Mr. Thomas conclu<lcd his 
speech with a ringing plea to the youth of 
America to unite and organize that the 
Socialist ideals of u iilamied economy with

• When, OB the twenljieighth day of June, 1804, 
FVedeiidi Albert Wintdor auccecded in lighting 
the Ljreenm Theatre with gaa, no one criticised 
him. Bat when, a abort lime later, Winodor 
announced that he wonid toon Ulnminate all 
London with Ibe aune fbel, a deluge of ridicule 
brohe on Ua bead. Sir Waller Seoll, ihe novcl- 
itt, thoaght he wai a madman. Napoleon 
diamlMed hi* project ai "una grande folic" (a 
big humbug). Acton barleiqued bla notion 
from the atage. The dull and the auperatilioaii 
Ihavghl Una a devil oeapcd from HdL 

Yet, such was the man*8 clear.«ightedne«a and 
petoererance that the ridicule and contempt 
aimed at him from everjr quarter of Wealem 
Europe only pushed him on to greater efforts. 
Against the almost unbelievable odds of prej- 
udice and disbelief, he Isid the first gas mains 
in city aInseU; Illuminated the Pall Mall; and, 
in 1812, formed the first gas company. 

Today, the industry founded by Frederick 
Albert Winsdor has more thsn a thousand uses 
aside from lighting. In the United Slates alone, 
it supplies heat to two-thirda of the people— heat 
for cooking, baking, mainlaining an ample sup- 
ply of hot water, and warming the home. Serving 
over 8,000 dlies, towns, and villages, it employe 
120,i)00 people and represents an investment 
of over 5 billions of dollars in equipment and 
buildings, in pipe lines and city gas mains. 

The present-day development of the gas 
industry, amaiing as it may al first appear, has 
not been due to chance. . . . Tfae gas industry 
has reached iu present sutus because of iu 
devotion to the ideals of efficiency, serviee, 
and human comfort.

Socialism Only Way to 

Avoid Disaster—Thomas 

(Continued from Fifth I'ase.) 
he Imiught forth in America as the only 
possibility to avoid Fascism. 

"Socialism offers philosophy of brotlier- 
IkxkI applied," Mr. Thomas told his audi- 
ence. As a first step toward overcoming 
the lack of interest and inertia of the 
American j)eople, he predicted the forma- 
tion of a Farmer-Labor party shortly after 
the election and declared that what will 
come in the future will depend on the ac- 
tivity of youth in organizinK and uniting to 
combat war and Fascism.

Cap and Bells Selects 
'Whistling in the Dark' 
For Spring Production 

Choice of Famous Comedy Marks 

Departure From Traditional 

Classical Play 

By Cadwallader Evans, III '38 
Momlay, Ajjril IH John F. Dingwall 
'37, President of Cap and Bells, announced 
.Sunday that, as a ri'sult of a last minute 
cban|{e in plans, the spring productiorj, 
s<-bedule<l for May 15, w ill be Wliiiflliiiy in 
Thv Dark, m which Ernest Truex ajipeared 
years ago. The tyjw of play is a startling 
innovation to Cap and Bells' policies, 
breaking the time-honored tradition of pre- 
senting a classical work for the spring 
offering, but the comedy-melodrama is a 
favorite of great standing with amateur 
dramatic groups. 

I'ntil the week-end, Dingwall had been 
making arrangements for staging The 
Tiiiliir Miulf Man, well known comedy by 
Harry J. .'^mith '02, but was unable to ob- 
tain the services of Robert l.e .Sueur, who 
bus direi'ted previous j)hi.vs here to oversee 
the iiroiluction. It was finallv decided 
that the complications of putting on a 
three-set drama, in addition to the po|)U- 
larity an<l suitability of Whislling in Ihe 
Dark, made the latter a better choice. 
Dingwall will direct the Laurence Gross- 
Edward C. Childs play himself, and an- 
municed that casting will be done tonight 
and Tuesday, with rebearsids slated to be- 
gin Wednesday.

Foley '37 Succeeds Bradley 
As Head of Little Theatre 

Mirkin Recommends Changes ; Post 

Of Business Manager Falls 

To Colman '37 

Frank M. Foley '37 of Brooklyn, N. V. 
has been elected to succeed Robert H 
Bradlev, Jr. '3fi as president of the Little 
Theatre, while Richard W. Colman, Jr. '37 
of Caldwell, N. J., replaces Stanford M. 
Mirkin us business manager, a position 
George H. Tryon, III '38 of South Orange, 
N. .)., will take over when the 1938 board 
goes into office. Outstanding at the meet- 
ing of the Little Theatre group on Satur- 
day was a report by Mirkin covering three 
years of the organization's activity with 
recommendations for changes as well as a 
financial statement of his two years in 

The report dealt maiidy with a study of 
the trend of jKtpular reaction to the bills of 
the last three years bv the faculty, .stu- 
dents, and townspeople. As a result of 
the report the group is considering the crea- 
tion of a faculty committee of three mem- 
bers which will 8i>rve purely in an advisory 
capacity, assuming no active control. The 
connnittee would read plays or offer sug- 
gestions alrout plays already accepted hy 
the undergraduate reading committee. 
Another of the twenty points in Mirkin's 
reimrt that Is receiving serious considera- 
tion is a discussion period after the presen- 
tation of each hill to criticize objectively 
the faults that have become apparent. 
Better choice of dates was also suggested. 
Future Bills Under Discussion 

Under discussion at present are plans for 
the third group of plays the workshop will 
produce this year. As yet no decisions 
have Ijeen reache<l concerning the person- 
nel or the plays to be utilised. 

Other new officers made known at the 
meeting were John H, Ballantine '.37 as 
coflttune manager and E<lwin 8. Mills '38 
as the new secretary. James B. Lyon, III 
'38 will take over the duties of costume 
manager next S|)ring and (Jeorge Fry '38 
will Ik" first assistant business manager. 
Courtenay J. Moon, Gordon T. Kay, and 
Thomaa S. Morgan '38 were also added to 
the reading committee.

Chinese Militarism Considered To 

Be Most Significant Move 

Against Japan 

By John B. Swift '38 

"When you come to the (piestion of 
peace or war in the Orient it's almost any- 
body's gviess," declared Dr. James M. 
Henry, Provost of Lingnan I'niversity in 
Canton and one of Ihe most distinguished 
.■\mcrican educators in China, s|)eaking 
on "War or Peace in the Far East" under 
the auspii'cs of the Forum in .lesup Hall on 
Sunday evening, April 12. ■'The Chinese 
will tell you that if there is peace in Europe 
there will be peace in Ihe Fjist." 

Citing Ihe possibly dangerous efTeets of 
the Ethiopian .situation, he explained 
that "Japan is strong, powerful, and con- 
fident, with territorial ambitions of 
which no one knows the ending. It seems 
clear that Japan's aim toward China is to 
keep her under her lliunib and to keep her 
from becoming a united enemy." 

Union with Russia Unwanted 

Dr. Henry explained 
relations which involve the Soviet bolster- 
ing of Chinese nationalism hy injecting 
anti-foreign sentiment and instigating a 
boycott against the British; however, 
they went loo far when the Third Inter- 
national's activities resulted in incendiary 
strife ill Canton. China, he emphasized, 
does not want to be allied with Russia. 
"I have heard several officials .sa.v that if 
they had to make a choice between Japan 
and Russia that they w(aild choose 
Russia," he declared. "It's a Hobson's 

Dr. Henry laid great stress upon the 
changes in China during the past fifteen 
.vears. "China is undergoing a revolution 
that hits every of political and s<peial 
aclivitv," ccmtinued the distingui.shed 
educator. The change from war-lord rule 
to a more resd unification, decrease in 
graft, and the more .serious attitude of 
officials were given as exami)les of reform,

There has prolmbly never heeii a 
time when any t?'*'!'' number of 
Williams stiulenls liave had nialinv 
religious convictions. On the oilier 
hand, we suspect that the undei- 
(jniduale has considerahie curiosily 
about this subject, as old as the 
human race it.self. it may be a 
feeling of regret that he cimnot be- 
lieve as his fathers did; of re.sent- 
iiient at the freiiueni perversions of 
spiritual faith recorded by history; 
of agnostic surprise that so iiiiiny 
otherwise rational men have made 
religion the cornerstone of their

self achieve the same position.

and gel a kick out of warming up five 
or six pitchei-8. In spite of the lack of 
outside woik, «e'll still take the I'uiple 
over Yale this Wednesday. Both Hurry 
Stevens and Big Walter have lecovered 
from the marathon pilching duels they 
engaged In at Princeton and either one 
ought to be able to stop the boys in Blue. 
Not that we have any thought of the re- 
cent ilefcat of Yale by Springfield and their 
beating four pitchers out of the box to the 
tune of S-2, but eveiy little bit helps. 
The bits ought to be |)iling up in the bats 
liy now after a week's layoff and if the 
Williams firing line holds true to form, 
Yale will be putting its moundsinen to 
work in pairs. 

We noted that in spile of lain over

denied his exhll>ition game with the 
Yanks and after listening to the gracious 
"jollying" of the Brooklynitea in the 
bleachers for seven innings while bis team 
trailed 1-0, bad the .satisfaction of coming 
out on the .sunny end of a '2-t score. Ca.sey 
modestly spurned all praise and confined 
himself to staling that, while there might 
possibly be who thought otiierwise, 
the Oodgei's seemed to have the class of 
the Niitional League in pitching and that

Lacrosse .Still thinking in terms of the 
weather, we notice that rain, 
shine or call your own, Whoops keeps the 
lacrosse acpiad on the run and our ideas 
on the game have suffered quite a re- 
vision. We were of the old .school that 
considered the game a form of legalized 
niiiyhem and the slicks merely tossed in 
to take the place of hatcbets, but it seen\s 
that there is (juile a bit of science to the 
game and the players are a great deal 
more than football players marking time. 
From a squad of less than twenty-five 
four years ago, this year's team luis fifty 
candidates, and all competent to take the 
fiehl. With five games on the schedule 
and such men as Captain Potts, Gravy 
.lones, Bill Cohendel and Tom Duncan, a 
former Poly Prep star, to strengthen it, it 
looks like a very successful sea.son. To 
those who know the sport we olTer apolo- 
gies for our ignorance as to what ii fast 
sport it really is and trust that its following 
will increase in proportion to the team's 
yearly improvement.

Clement Familiar with Part 

Clement is familiar with the pari nt 
Wally I'niier, having played it last spring 
in the prnductinii given by the Phillips 
Exeter draiimt ic club. The drama eenteis 
around this character, made famous by 
Ernest Truex in t'le Broadway run nf 
1932-33, who is described by the authnrs 
as "a small, timid man, who loses his in- 
hibitions when he has had a few drinks, 
and becomes extremely gabby". 

As leader of the gangsters, Gordon T. 
Kay will he east in a role somewhat dif- 
ferent fi'oin those in which he has pre- 
viously distinguished himself on Williams 
singes. In the Edward Arnold jiart he 
w ill be forced to discard the mien of rotund 
jollity which has marked most of his 
other chaiaclerizations for Cap and Bells 
and Little Theatre plays. 

Philip H. Warren, .Jr. '38, who received 
great acclaim for his portrayal nf the po- 
liceman in the Little Theatre's recent 
.1 Grotesque For November, will handle one 
of the larger gangster parts, while Roger

Freshman Prize Speaking 
Contest Won by Clement 

Humorously Impersonates Dickens' 

'Sergeant Buzfuz' ; Whitcher 

Takes Second 

\ humorous imiiersonation won out over 
dramatic eloquence Tuesday afternoon in 
Goodrich Hall when ,L C. Clement, Jr. '39 
won the first prize of $20.00 in the annual 
Freshman prize speaking contest with his 
representation of Sergeant Buzfuz in 
Dickens' "Trial of Mr. Pickwick." The 
second (irize of $10.00 was awarded to 
L. D. Whitcher for his rendition of T. S. 
Eliot's "The Hollow Men", while R. A. 
Crowe, reciting "Tetelcstai" by Conrad 
Aiken, received honorable mention. 

Putting an imaginary Mrs. Banlell, an 
"unimiieachable female ", on the stage, ad- 
dressing a fancied jury, and referring often 
to "the ruthless destroyer of this domestic 
oasis of Goswell Street", Clement kept the 
audience in constant laughter with his 
imitation of the ely prosecutor attempting 
to prove Mr. Pickwick's guilt in a breach 
of promise suit. The winner was especially 
entertaining for his ability occasionally to 
break almost into tears, then lashing out 
at the bewildered "culprit", and at the 
next moment rising to the heights of emo- 
tional pleading to demand that this 
"civilized" jury punish such "revolting 
heart lessncsa". 

Whitcher Speaks Effectively 

Whitcher imparted to his listeners a 
sense of the uncanny and unnatural with 
his rendition of "The Hollow Men", a 
poem dealing with the intellectuals who 
find themselves stniggling to overcome the 
hnite power of an awakened and all- 
powerful nature. Crowe's excellent enun- 
ciation Bn<I control of voice was very 
effective in his rendering of Aiken's 
sombre and dramatic poem, a difficult

The Chapin exhibit for April is the first 
in a series showing devices used by the 
early printers. For this first one there 
have been chosen devices of Germany, 
Spain ami the Low Countries, while those 
found in books of England, France and 
Italy will make up subsequent exhibits. 

These jirintcr's marks are, some of them, 
inirely fanciful; some are facetious, incor- 
porating a pun or other jest; many include 
heraldic beasts, and conceits borrowed 
from the miniaturist; hut in one way or 
another they usually convey information 
as to the printer's name, that of his estab- 
lishment, and the country of his birth. 

Often designed by artists of note, many 
of these little ])ictures jiresent extraordi- 
narily pleasing effects. They are striking 
and bold, for after all, their object was to 
call attention to the printer's name; yet

111 an elTorl lo slreiigtlien class spirit ami 
nrgaiii/atinii, mniiilii'rs of the .liiiiinr and 
.Sophomore classes met sinuiltaiicoiiKly on 
\\ ediicsilay I'vening lo foriiuihite plans for 
resurrecting the cusloni of liiilding indi- 
vidual class dinners during I he spring term. 
.\{ the .lunior meeting a ninlioii was 
adopted to linid an informal iliiinor on 
.•\pril '24, while the .So|ilion lores agreed 
upon May 3 as the date for theirs, both to 
take place at the Orcharils on the Norlli 
Adams road, according to pre.sent plans. 

The origin nf the plan for holiliiig thes(> 
dinners, came in bntli instances from indi- 
viduals within the respective classes who 
fell that there was a need to stimulate 
class spirit in order to avoid the tentlency 
to lose class unity which generally sets in 
after Freshnuin year, and at I be same time 
lay the foiiiiilatioii for a vital alumni or- 
ganization wliiidi would prove of benefit to 
the college in the coming years. In recent 
years it has been the custom for the .Senior 
class lo liniil a class dinner during Com- 
meiicenient week, hut this was considered 
lo be too late in college life to secure all the 
possible benefits. 

Attendance at Meetings Small 
Under the leadership of Richard W. 
Colnian '37 and Myron .\. Tciiney '38, 
presidents of their respective classes, the 
nieelings which were each attended by ap- 
proximately fifty to sixty members of the 
class, were held Wednesday evening in 
.Jesup and Chapin Halls, respectively. 
William Everdell, III '37 introduceii the 
plan to hold a class dinner at the .Junior 
meeting and after a short discussion it was 
decided to hold a meeting of representa- 
tives from each fraternity and social group 
to elect a committee to he in charge of ar- 
rangements. On Tuesday this later group 
met and Colnian, .lohii P. Causey, and H. 
Lawrence Thompson, Jr. were put In 
charge of further plans for the dinner. 

Teiiney [iroposed the plan of a class din- 
ner to the Sophomore gathering and after 
it was imaiiimously agreed upon, C. Boru 
Newman was placed in charge of the finan- 
cial arrangements while .lohn C. Jay and 
Northrop Brown were chosen to head the 
entertainment committee. As at the 
Junior meeting, a delegate from each fra- 
ternity and social group was appointed for 
canvassing their re.siieclive^s for 

Ill oriler to make the dinner as informal 
as possible and within the means of every 
stuilcnt, arrangements have been made by 
each class at the Orchards for the serving 
of a steak dinner with beer for one dollar 
per person. 

Liberal Club Will Take No Part 
In Student Strike Against War 

Williams College w ill take no part in the 
nation-wide student anti-war strike 
scheduled for Wednesday as far as the 
Liberal Club is concerned, Norman L. 
Newhall '37, president of the organization, 
asserted at a meeting of its Executive 
Committee on Thursday. Louis .1. Hec- 
tor and H. V. K. Mitchell III '3S were 
elected to membership in the Executive 
Commit lee at the same meeting. 

Spnnsored by liie .\merican Student 
Uniiin and the Peace Council, the strike 
will bring .3.50,000 .studenLs in cnlleges all 
over the country out of their to 
hear speakers and lo take iMirl In deniim- 
slralions against war according to those 
planning the event. The position of the 
Liberal Club t<iward the strike, in which 
Williams did nol take part last year, is 
set forth in the following statement by 

"It is my opinion that the way to stop 
war is not hy a student strike. Inn.smuch 
as these strikes in the past have lieen 
notoriniis fiascos al many notable colleges 
and imiversities, the Lil>eral Cluh will 
have no hand in organizing one this year." 
What action, if any, the embryonic Wil- 
liams post of the Veterans of Future Wars 
will lake is not yet known.

taneously dLscuss plans for class tliiuiers ti) be held in the near future. 
There are |)ri)l)al)ly those wht) fi)rosee, in the effeetinn i>f plans, few 
real atlvanlanes, exei'pl pcriiaps to the t)wni>r t)f "The Orciiards", where 
biith baiHiiietsarc IdIm- held. 

Pri)l)ably the most widespreail bewililernient revDlves al)i)Ut having 
the Ijamiuet.s this early in the ci)llege career of each class. Why not he 
■satisfied with the customary Senior ilinner at Coniiiienceiiient time? 
Objecliiins Ik a baiK|uet at ibe end t)f the last year are few anil far between. 
l''i)r one lhin(j, they afforil opptjilunity for the expression of the nebulous 
feelings of loyalty, gratitude, and love that each has for the college 
it i.s about to leave behind it — a feeling so acute at such times of parting 
that it does cry mil for tangible manifestation. Again they foster 
congeniality which bears the refreshing fruit of reunions that really are re- 
unions, as well as class organization which, since the class is the unit of the 
alumni body and the alumni body the guiding light of a college like ours, 
sows seeds for a harvest of honor in the .service of Williams. 

But these benefits are to be gleaned almost as much from underclass 
banquets as from Senior ones, and there are reasons why the former sht)uld 
even be preferred to the latter. In the first place it would seem simpler 
to apply the bellows to the embers of class spirit in order to set it aflame, 
than to wait until the embers have died and the fire must be ct)mpletely 
rekindletl ; for there do exist in the Sophomore and Junior classes embers of 
class feeling that in Freshman year under common oppression and conmion 
problems burned brightly and high. 

Furthermore, for Juniors especially, the way is opened to constructive 
harmony in aim and in effort for the work they are just embarking upon 
in the administration of undergraduate affairs. Class policy will be dis- 
cussed at these gatherings, with a view to its unification and consequent 
realization. The class that is efficiently and solidly organized leaves its 
stamp on Williams College, and progress under the rapidly changing ex- 
ternal conditions of our day requires the organization of every class — 
organization at graduation if the stamp is to be given via the less direct 
medium of alumni matters alone; organization well before graduation if 
it is to be given via the more direct medium of undergraduate affairs as 

'Be a Politician' Says 

Postmaster General Farley 

(Continued from First Page) 

Postmater General loDketl up on tliat ques- 
tion but only replied tliat lie iiouldn't talk 
about them. 

Liberty League Termed 'Repulsive' 

Well, what (lid Mr. Farley think ahtmt 
the American Liherty League? 

"Oh you mean the 'cellophane league' 
.... it's a du Pont product you know," he 
replied with a gootl natured wink ol theeye. 
"But really the American Liberty League 
is repulsive to the American people in 
Keneral. The American people are Roitig 
to show their reaction by electing Roose- 
\e\t next November liy an even greater 
majority than they did in 1!)3'2. Why, 
that AVa.shington dinner last winter did 
more /or Roosevelt than anything else," he 
answered with all the finality of a state- 
ment to "the press." 

Public Funds Not 'Political' 

We asked what he thought about the 
. Holt investigation of the use of public 
relief funds for political campaigning. 

His reply was that "public funds are 
never to be used for |>olitical puriwses and 
if men are appointed to office who make 
such illegal use of that money, they dtm't 
belong in office. But of course," he 
ailded, "the human element always enters 
into it especially if men misplace their 

"Well, howabout the »4,SOO,0OO.O0O Pres- 
ident Roosevelt was given several months 
agt) for relief piir)>oses? Why tlid he still 
have a million of that left almost a year 
and a half after it was granted to him for 
emergency use," we venttiretl more with 
the ex|)ectation of a quick exit than to hear 
the reply. 

"You see, boys, we have to look out for 
surpluses", was his explanation. "Now, 
say some important people in the Post 
Office ftdmini,stration should die. It would 
cost thousjinils to reiwt the whole arrange- 
ment again." 

"Just l<)f>k at these awful floods, for ex- 
ample .... We never know just what is go- 
ing tt) hap|)en so we hmie to have surpltis." 

"But wasn't that money granted by 
Congress for unemployment relief?" 
Howes Helps in Clarification 

"We're imly trying to explain to you 
that we have so many tinexpeeted things 
to allow for, don't you see?" This time it 
wan Fimt Assistant Postmaster General 
W. W. Howes, who had shifted his half- 
bumed cigar and interrupted his floor- 
pacing long enough to lay his heavy hand 
on our shoulder and help us "understand." 

The subject was changed for the mo- 
ment to the question as to what Mr. Farley 
thought the Democratic Party would have 
to do to their platform to satisfy the fol- 
lowers of Dr. Townsend. 

"The Social Security legislation has just 
been enacted to care for all the aged, in- 
firm, and incapacitated people of this 
country," was his answer. 

"What about the constitutionality of 
that act?" we asked. 

"We don't worry much about the con- 
stitutionality of the act. By the nay 
Wilbur," the Democratic chief again in- 
terrupted the office surveying of Mr. 
Howes, "has that act been brought before 
the Supreme Court yet?" 

"You know," he said, turning to the 
scribes, "we laymen don't know much 
about that." 

Even the "off the record" queries were 
answered in the same frank way. For 
every governmental situation the coun- 
try's leading party general had a political 
explanatiim, though he didn't wish those 
explanations to be recorded. 

Predicts Large Roosevelt Victory 

Finally we wanted to get a statement as 
to just how Roosevelt would come out in 
the next election. 

"I have no doubts," he .said confidently, 
"that Roosevelt is going to be elected by 
an even greater majority than in 1932. 
He's even going to carry Pennsylvania!" 

By this time the frantic appeals of his 
secretary had convinced the Postmaster 
General that it was time to leave for the in- 
auguration ceremony. So without a mo- 
ment's more delay, the large Democratic 
leader hurried from behind his throne anil 
with a smile of complete satisfactiim, pal- 
ted us on the shoulder and said goodbye 

with the advice to "don't forget be a 

politician, and then become a statesman." 

Freshman Prize Speaking 
Contest Won by Clement

thotighta of the "herdsman and roper of

sided over by Prof. A. H. I-icklider, were

who also rendered a soliloquy from

Clergyman's Holiday T lie W i 1 1 i a ni s 
ChriHtiaii Associa- 
tion, except for its liberality in the Boys' 
Club appiopriatioMS (of which we wrote 
last autumn), has instituted a welcome 
custom. \\c 8|)euk of the lOmbassy 
scheme, the suceesH of which has been 
definitely proven for the second coiisccu- 
live year, last year the religious iiiolij 
was riUhcr loo obvious, as we remember. 
This year, local (synioisis discovered llitni- 
miivs bringiiiK up hitherto unmentionable 
topics such as the Good Hook and the 
tenets of I'tilitarianisin. The Oxford 
Movement and Bucliniaiiism also got 
plenty of attention. The whole affair, 
though it Hii.s doubtless in the nature of a 
po.stniaii's holiilay for the visitors, was 
anything but an anticlimax for its pro- 
moters, though we've been unable to find 
any reliable figures on how many actually 
saw the Light. 

Reunion at The Colman-Everdell- 
The Orchards Jacobs-Dingvvall-Caus(!y- 
Hillinan plans for a reun- 
ion dinner have stirred the customarily 
lethargic .lunior class to action; the affair 
is slated to come olT at the Orchards next 
Friday evening, with ilinner luid beer at 
one iron nnui u head. This plan, which 
has revolved aimlessly in the hetiils of 
countless ciunpus notables in seasons past 
with nothing beyond the Gym l.unch stage 
(levehiping, has finally turned into some- 
thing. The purpose is adequate; such 
affairs are almost es.sential in forming the 
nucleus for graduate organization. The 
Sophomore class has already adopteil the 
plan, and indications are that even the 
brilliant freshmen arc planning to desert 
their books for an evening soon. .Such 
banquets will do much to answer critics of 
our present social system, who have 
claimed (and rightly) that the first year we 
are inches and the last we are miles apart; 
regular class diiniers should be more of an 
institution than the story about former 
President Garfield in front of the post 
office or Mark Hopkins' famous Log. 

Flickers College audiences are infamous 
for their wonted attitude toward 
screen babies. Yet we venture to predict 
a profitable two-day stand for the Dionnc 
quintuplets at the Walden this week-end. 
The Country Doctor is the story of a l)ack- 
woods practitioner (.lean Hersholt), a semi- 
biographical account of Dr. Dafoe, and of 
the birth of the million dollar wards of the 
British Government. There is also an 
adequate plot concerning the doctor's 
fight to have a hospital established in the 
community, some excellent clowning by 
Slim .Summerville, an<l a credible romance 
featuring the personable .lean bang, a new- 
comer to Hollywood. Saturday's bill in- 
cludes a well-acted though rather pointless 
gangster-boy hokimi film, with .loseph 
Calleia substituting for Wallace Beery as 
.Jackie Cooper's admirer. Also The Music 
Goes linunil, and out comes Harry Rich- 
man, of all peoi)le.

Yale, Diek Marcus and Walter Kliniczak 
did yecjman service at. the plate, Pa(!h 
praeking out a I riple and a single. 

Aside IVom the Williams ejTors the game 
was played on fairly even terms through- 
out, each pitpher allowing four pa.sses, and 
pacb getting expellenl support fnmi his 
palchcr. Mospley in particular was out-

and scoring two runs. It was not until

Ihe lying run in the eighth and the ICIi's 
surprised theiusplvps by taking Ihp game 
in Ihe tenth. For Wall Fuchs as pitcher 
and Captain Bill, \(e feel especially .syiupn- 
llielie; Waller not only had to pitch all-

was ragged, but his best elTortsat the plate, 
which inehided two singles and a beautiful

.\iiiong others (about six or seven) Hank 
Slaiilon had a lough day. It looks to us 
as if I leiiry was .still a little bothered by his 
old job at third. He charges fast balks in 
the approved third base .style, and on t hose 
to his left looks very good, but the alow 
bounding ones to deep short havp a tend- 
ency to throw his timing off, a difficulty 
which a few days ought to help.

May Demonstrate in Ami- War Strike 

While Williams Stands Aloof, 500 Colleges, Including Amherst, Wes- 
leyan, Smith, Dartmouth, to Agitate for Peace Wednesday 

By Austin Broadhurst '38 

While Williams CoIIeRe liberals stand' 
aloof for the second time from agitation for 
an "anti-war strike", plans are rapidly be- 
ing pushed to completion under the guid- 
ance of the six-month-oUi American Stu- 
dent Union and the Peace Council for a 
mammoth, nationwide demonstration to- 
morrow- morning against war, Fascism, 
compulsory R.O.T.C. training, and Amer- 
ican military preparedness which is ex- 
(leeted to involve over 350,000 college and 
high school students in 600 colleges and 
universities and 600 high Bchools across 
the country. 

Unperturbed by admitted disorder an<I 
violence which have marked the two pre- 
vious strikes because of "misvmdenitand- 
ings" between students and college author- 
ities, Joseph P. lyasli, executive secretary 
of the A.S.U. and foremost in the ranks of 
advocates for the demonstration, has as- 
serted that seventy-one educators, includ- 
ing sixteen college presidents, have en- 
dorsed the strike while students in France, 
Belgium, and Spain have made plans to 
hold simultaneous sympathy demonstra- 
I tions. The strike last year involved a 
mere 126,000 college students according to 
press association estimates although the 
A.S.U. stoutly asserts that 176,000 took 

' Students in Wesleyan, Amherst, Smith, 
and Mt. Holyoke have formulated plans 
for extensive "walk-outs" from classes at 
the "zero-hour", eleven o'clock to attend 
mass meetings similar to that held here in 
1934, the first year the strike was con- 
ducted. Princeton University, birth-place 
of the Veterans of Future Wars, has ar- 
range<I a gigantic affair with Dorothy 
Thompson, politicol writer, as the chief 
speaker while the University of California 
will listen to Representative Maury Mav- 
erick, the Democrat from Texas who 
promised publicly to introduce the bonus 
bill of the V.F.W. Vassar, Springfield, 
Dartmouth, and Middlehury are among 
the other near-by collejtps who plan to take 
a firm stand against war. 

Called a "brain child of the newly re- 
juvenated Peace Council" hy the Amherst 
Student, the Amherst movement has the 
consent and co-operation of the college 
authorities and will remilt, ita sponsors 
fondly hope, in the cessation of eollenc ac- 
tivities from 11.00 a. m. to 12.00 m. to- 
morrow mominn while the faithful gather 
in a mass meeting to listen to representa- 
tives of the Amherst Christian Association,

condemn war and Fascism. Although the

Williams will take on the partial aspects 
of a House-party w-a-k-eiid Saturday when 
approximately seventy members of the 
VussarCileeClub arrive from Poughkccpsic 
to give a joint concert with the Purple 
singers. Although plans concerning an 
overnight stay bad not bex'ii hande<l down 
from Vassar when Tni-; Recoru went to 
])ress Suntlay night, it is fairly certain, in 
the opinion of Arthur II. Tibbils, 1937 
Manager of the Williams organization, 
that most of the yt>ung ladies will 8j)end the 
night in Williamstowu. 

A dance following the concert has also 
been arranged, but plans are not yet defi- 
nite as to the whereabouts of the event. 
Formerly scheduled for the Williams Iiui, 
it now appears that Pete D'Amico's band 
will play in the Garfield Club, although 
official sanction on the part of Paul M. 
,Jacobs '37, President of the Club, had not 
been publicly secured Sunday night. 
Novel Admission Scheme Planned 

Keeping in mind the disastrous concert 
of several years ago which made the last 
appearance of the Vassar Club in Williams- 
town notorious since a mere handful of 
spectators acted as an audience for the 
young hulies, Manager Tibbits made pub- 
lic a novel plan of attracting a large at- 
tendance to the joint recital. Fifty cents 
will be charged for admission to the concert 
itself, and identification tags will be at- 
tached to the memters of the audience as 
they pass through the Chapin Hall doors 
following the singing. These tags will 
admit the bearer to the dance graliii, while 
those undergraduate* who shun the con- 
cert ))ut are attracted to the dance will

Survey Shows Williams As

Kenyon College Releases Figures 

After Study of 32 Small 


Contrary to the general belief that Wil- 
liams is the "rich man's college," it was dis- 
closed in a survey of thirty-two small insti- 
tutions conducted by Kenyon College of 
Kenyon, Ohio, that in proportion to its en- 
rollment, Williams stands fifth on the list 
in regard to wealth. On the basis of point- 
ratings computed from their respective 
positions in the six main categories of col- 
lege wealth comparisons, the six leading 
colleges covered by the survey were ranked 
in the following order: 

1 . Bryn Mawr — 25 Points 

2. Haverford —23 

3. Swarthmore— 13 " 

4. Wesleyan —10 " 

5. Williams — 7 "

Kenney''s Green Tie Never Cost $125, Says 'Pat'' 

Keefe, Stetson Hall Janitor, in 'Straight' Story 

"There was never any billiard cloths cut' 
from the tables while I was working at 
Wilson's parlor from 1898-1906," said 
"Pat" Keefe as he relaxed in his janitor 
quarters at the l«)ttom of the Stetson 
Library, "and you know as well as I do 
that no billiard cover ever cost any 

It seems that on Saint Patrick's Day 
Edward A. Kenney '06, Democratic Rei>- 
resentative from New Jersey, wears a 
green baize necktie which, he claims, cost 
S12S.00. Congressman Kenney says that 
one of his classmates found he needed a 
green necktie on St. Patrick's Eve; so he 
cut himself one from the top of the table 
on which he was playing. The proprietor, 
so the story runs, charged this prankster 
SI 26.00. The famous tie was presented 
to Kenney upon his graduation. 

Remembers No Cut Covers 

"Pat" continu(Kl his story, occasionally 
pounding emphatically on his table to 
emphasise his pointa. "I guess I am the 
only man alive to verify this story as 
'Beanie Wilson', former owner of Cabe's 
present parlor, has long since di(Hl, and so 
you will have to take my word for it . Back 
in those days, table* were a lot more 
vnhinblc than they are today because 
they were used more, as the undergrad- 
uates could not leave every week-end as 
you lads do. You know- you people do an 
awfid lot of highf1>'inR, highfalootin' 
around the country over week-ends, to 
Smith, New York, and other places. 

' "Well, to get back to my story, table 
cloths cost IjctwetMi $25.00 and $30.00, 
even to us, and we used the finest material 
that money could buy. I remember those 
years well, and I'll be <lerned if 1 rememlier 
even one $30.00 cover being cut up by an 

"Wait (Here I thought he was going to 
give me the goods on the story, but no — ) 
I rememl)er, — say I bet I know where 
'Ed' Kenney got the tie. 1 used to sell 
green lies on St. Patrick's Day to the 
undergraduates, which I made from the 
old cloths lying around the shop. Yes, 
sir, I'll l)et that's where he got his as I sold 
a good many of 'em. 

Cabe Prindle Agrees 

"Now- mind you, I'm not trying to dis- 
prove Kenney's story, as it is a dem good 
one, but am just trying to put you straight. 
I'm getting old, and my memory may be 
failing me, but I'll be demed if I'd forget 
1 1 25.00 worth of gn<Kls being cut out of the 

To check on Pat's memory of the prices 
of billiard cloths, Cabe Prindle was ap- 
proached and asked about pric<>s around 
19f>5-06. The present billiard king of 
Williamstown said "No man around here 
ever paid $125.00 for a billiard cover. I 
n-orked across the street from this present 
place and used to come over here a lot to 
talk to 'Pat'. I know that prices never 
were SI 25.00; they were about S2fi.00 
to 130.00."

At the zeri) hour of eleven o'clock tomorrow inorninK, college and 
high school students in ail parts of the country will swarm out of their 
cla.ssrdDins to strike against war. There will be parades, banners, 
speeches, and occasional fisticuffs- elsewhere, but not at Williams. 
There will not be so much as a picket in front of Griffin Hall to discourage 
us scabs from continuing our study of history, economics, and political 

If there were any martial lackling-dunuiiy such as required K.O.T.C. 
if the college provided iiuulequale opportunity for an honest approach 
to the question of war and peace, if an eiiiolioiial appeal were likely to do 
any lasting good — then there would be some reason for holding a strike 
here. As it is, however, most of us already look upon modern wiir as an 
atrocious means to highly ciuestionable ends, and feel that the solution 
must be sought through earnest study with open mind. If Williams can 
make a contribution to the cause of peace in this way, perhaps the leaders 
of the American Student Union will excuse us for not joining in their 
annual shatlow-boxing spree. 

SPRING- o. c. 

In hopes of crystallizing .sufficient campus opinion on the .subject 
to bring about ;i change, we take as a text for today, current weather, 
conditions. It was only with great difficulty thai we kept silent on the 
Floods, for the Floods at least had tht>ir exciting moments. But it is now 
three weeks since Williainstown sundials have been able to function, 
three weeks, with May fast approaching, since Hopkins Hall windows 
have been open to the vvariii breath of this season of the year that has on 
occasion gone under the name of "Spring" — three hing weeks in which 
local thermometers, with all their idiosyncrasies and inaccuracies, have 
scarce been able to rise above forty degrees. 

Our buoyant spirit is broken, and though we must not .seem ungrate- 
ful for a winter that was born suddenly, lived heartily, and, unless it 
plots a resurrection, died abruptly, yet the sight of snow on the sur- 
rounding mountains stjmehow nips in the bud our traditional "fancy" 
which "turns" instead to wondering at the name of Spring Street. 

'College Fraternity Is a Modern Anachronism,'' 

Announces A. E. Duerr, Inter jraternity Official 

"The American college friiternitv is a 
modern iiii!ioliri)nisni, for tlie rcii.son lliat it 
tenets to (liscoumnc tlip development of the 
iiidividimlity of its members l)y milking 
tliein conform to ttie tyiio-prodneiiiK, 'col- 
Icditite' iittitiide of thirty yciirs ago, when 
the modern tinder),cradimte finds individu- 
ality hiitlifv <lesinil>le and heinu 'eollcKiate' 
an oiilumwii cti.stoni," declared -Mvan K. 
Dtierr (13, Cliairmiiii of the National Iii- 
terfralemity Cont'erence, in an interview 
gmiited to 11 Record reporter. 

"Tliis condition iirevail.s," asserted Mr. 
Duerr, "l>ecanse tlie control of the fra- 
ternity is ahnost exclusively in the hands 
of the alumni of the Nineties, who by 
virtue of their finiiiicial support of a house 
are in a position to dictate its policies." 
Deplores 'Competitive' Basis 

Mr. Dtierr pointed out that up to I.SOO 
the fraternity .system developed in a nor- 
mal way its a "lii)jical expres,si(>n of the 
KreRarious instincts of the college man". 
With the eominu of the 'OO's and in(X)'8, 
however, there e«me the crn of efliiejilional 
mass pnxluetion, dictated enthtisia-sms, 
and dislortecl ({roup loyalty. College men 
became "colleRiate", and the curriculum 
was sorely neglected, for the stn<lent.s were 
sure that the road to certain siicces.s after 
graduation was via conformity to the ac- 
cepts "rah-mh" type, participation in 
sports and activities, and a general .sup- 
pression of the individuality. In other 
words, fraternity life wa« estahlislied on a 
purely competitive hasis. and 'bin busi- 
ness" methiMis were employed. 

"The situation is different now," dc- 
clareil Mr. Duerr. ''Forty years ago a 

♦college graduate became almost aulo- 
inatically a leader in hi.s community. 
Now there is little to choose lietwccii most 
colleRe men, who find themselves pretty 
much of a type, and as .such aliout equally 
(lesiral)le. The desire to develop one's in- 
dividuality and knowledge is now neces- 
sary if llie individual is to rise aliove the 
mob of types. In other words, the college 
man no longer sees any grejit attraction at- 
tached to being 'collegiate', and in fact 
sincerely desires to liri'ak away from the 
old traditions wliicli now- crijiple his 
chances for success." 

Alumni Dependence is Fault 

Mr. Duerr continued, showing that the 
difficulty in the present situation lies in 
the fact lliiit (he inoilern undergraduate is 
force<l liy economic necessity to go to the 
wealthy alumni when the house needs 
money, and that the rt'stdt is the continua- 
tion of Ihe old collegiate attitude. 

"The alumni do not for the most jmrl 
understand the needs of the mo<lem stu- 
dent," statcfl Mr. Dtierr. "They tlemand 
that he exert him.self 'to reflect glory <m 
the house,' w hen he would far rather have 
llic f>p|)ortunitv to serve some of his funda- 
mental |)craonal needs along the lines of 
schrdastic achievement." 

'Modernization' Is 'Salvation' 

"One would imagine that some of the 
younger alumni would he«in to make their 
opinions and understanding of the student 
viewpoint felt," Mr. Dtierr asserted, "but 
you find Burprisingly few of them actively 
serving the fraternity. This is because 
they failed in a large measure to get the 
individuality in college they find so neces-

"The .salvation of the fraternity system 
lies in the ability of its members to mod- 
ernize the system to express more faith- 
fully the attitude and needs of the modern 
undergraduates," Mr. Duerr declared. 
"As yet there is no harmony between the 
social life of the fraternity and the aca- 
demic objectives of the individual. The 
one tends to produce a ty))e, and the other 
calls for individuality. If the fraternity 
system is to become useful to its members, 
we must attempt to discover this harmony 
and remodel our system accordingly. "

licr (lie introductory note hIic hail sent us. 
"Well," she said, "you can't nee Mr. 
liorali here. The best thinx for you to do 
is tuii'i over to theSeiiat<' ehandier and s<>e 
if yiju can net him off the floor." 

So to the S<'nate we went. There was 
nil liiirah there amoriir the three senators 
« iiii answ<'red roll call that day. We were 
piisitive what he looked like. Hadn't we 
ir.iil all sorts of descriptions of him be- 

Mr. Borah Awe-inspiring 

We tried the lunchroom, lie wasn't 
lliere, at least not for twetdy ndnutes. 
We had sjient hours reading about him. 
\\ c had seen lots of pictures of him. 
We'd also seen "De I.awd" in (tnrri 
I'lislures. But we weren't half as moved 
.IS when we stared at the urey-haired 
(lenllcnian slowly walking down the hall. 
Ill- really wa.>i awe-inspirin^j. 

"Mr. Borah," we called timidly, "Could 
I speak to you for a few" minutes'?" 

Nope! Sorry . . . have to u" t" "

We were shaken but continued, "Can T

"Will you be in the office sometime this

l.nsin); our vote may not have meant 
nuich to him at this |)oint but we certainly 
felt that by helping the Democrats we had 
consolation for our disa]>tM>intment. Hut 
that's beside the point. The committee 
niei'lintf la.sted just two hours. 

Finally the ajted senator took his seat 
ni the Senate. At last we had a chance to 
.see iiini. So we rushed downstairs to put 
our note in with one of the pa^es. 
The Senator 'Tied Down' 

.\fter oonsiderable time the pa^c re- 
tiinieil with a message from Mr. Borah 
ilmt he was "tied down". In the mean- 
t;iiie we returned to the galleries imtil he 
«;isn't busy. At least until he inter- 
iu|iled his much i)hoto({raphed pose of 
slMring at the ceiling while the senator 
from Arizona argued about the weather 
. . . which ))ose in Mr. Borah's termi- 
nology is called "tied down". 

The disapjiointing chase went on for 
two days until finally wc thought another 
try at his office would bring results. So 
we started for the Senate Office Building 
again, a bit shaken at the thought of facing 
the Rubens in<|uisiti<m again.

formation from one of the men working 
on the Capitol lawn. 

"Ah don't know fo' sure. Boss. Ah 
thuik though that it's Ahmistice Day 
isn't it?" He did look a bit tired. 

Hack again in Mr. Borah's office Cora 
Kuhens was still there entrenched behind 
her desk . . . only staring a little harder 
at our return. Again we were told the 
"iSMnitor would not be in!" 

Knough is enough, we thought, so we 
asked her if w<^ could leave this 8<-t of 
questions with her. Would she give them 
to Mr. Borah for us? 

"The Senator is awfully busy 
such little nonsenses!" 

Hut we wrote lait what we thought were 
the four best <|uestions and handed them 
to her. 

Finds Writing Difficult 

She glanced at them, then glanced a 
little liarder, this time with her glasses on. 
"Well, I must say 1 certainly can't read 
this writing "... ami we were off. 

"What's this first question here abcait 
Mr. Townsend and his plan? I'm cer- 
tainly sure you'll have to ask Mr. Town- 
send and not Mr. Borah about that one. 

"And this last one here al)out the 
American Liberty League ... Mr. Borah 
can't talk about that. You ought to 
realize that!" 

We tried to smile. There wasn't too 
nuich wero»Wdo. 

That left just two ([uestions . . . both 
of which she answered herself. She

Smith Plans Week's Activity 

Smith, modestly calliUK itself "fiimc)i:s 
all up and down the Conneeticut valley for 
last year's anti-war strike", will have an 
anti-«ar weik with numerous speeches and 
nieetinKS. The administration has gener- 
ously donated the use of the John M. 
Greene Hall at Smith for the bixn eelinit 
on W'eilnesday while most if not all of the 
campus orKanizutions have plumped in 
favor of the move. The Smith College 
Weekly declared in its article on tlio "Stu- 
dent Strike against War, for Peace", that it 
"is in the nature of a dress-rehearsal for (lie 
action it will be essential to take when War 

S])ringfiel(l College, noted for its athletic 
teams, will have "one of the most out- 
standing Peace Meetings ... in this section 
of the country", according to a statement 
in the Springfield Shutenl by the Chairman 
of the College Peace Committee. With 
the co-operation of the student body and 
administration and "due to the personality, 
character, and careful arrangements of 
I)lans", the successful meeting will be ad- 
dressed l>y outside speakers. 

The Dartmouth Peace Committee, not 
content with a demonstration, is going to 
form a permanent organization for the 
propagation of peace. At the demoiist ra- 
tion, the audience will lie asked to approve 
the Nye-Kvale Hill mnvliig al)olilion of 
compulsory H.O.T.Cl training and the 
Nye-Chirk-Maverick Hill for strict Ameri- 
can Neutridity. Besides approving these 
bills and resolutions ciin<leinning arma- 
ment expenditures and restriction of aca- 
demic freedom, the Dartmouth group will 
be asked to take a modified form <if the 
famed "Oxford Pledge", swearing not to 
fight in luiy war of aggression. 

While other New York City colleges are 
expected to take enlhushistie part in the 
Wednesday uprising, Miinler College has 
announced its disdain for the strike as 
merely an "emotiontil outburst" and in- 
stead will conduct a "niohilization" of the 
student ho<ly at the same time and for the 
same purposes as the strike. So great a 
demonstration is expected in New York 
that the Cohimhia Broadcasting System 
has arranged to have Drew Pearson of 
crilie the situati<m over the air for fifteen 
minutes starting at 10.45 Wednesday

"The OrchurdH" tonight for the .lunior 
Class Hanciuet, which marks an attempt to 
revive class spirit and organization on the 
Williams campus. .lohn C. (JoodlMxly has

cently elected President of the Under-

At the time of printing, there is still 
some doubt as to whether the banquet will 
include steak and beer, as si^heduled, or 
merely steak. It was recently learned 
that "The (Orchards" docs not possess a 
liquor license, in wiileb case the serving of 
beer would be impossible. Quick work

jiears to have saved the day by procuring a 
"picnic permit", which allows the serving 
of beer on any given premises within the 
times stated on the permit. Unless the'

approve of the jjermit when it meets at

as planned, and the steaks will be waslie<l

Local Chapter of V.F.W. 
Nears Membership Quota 

J. C. Goodbody, State Commander, 

Denies Charge That Move 

Is 'Wet Act' 

"As the result of a two days' drive, 
more than 1 50 students have become mem- 
bers of The Veterans of Future Wars," 
said ,Iohn C. Goodbody '37, state com- 
mander of the organization, "and I be- 
lieve that we will fill our quota of "itX) men 
within the next twenty-four hours." 

"I realize that many students think this 
movement is a wet act, and I wish to say 
that this conscription here in Williams- 
town is merely an expression of sym- 
pathy with the national program. W^e do 
not plan to have any strikes or rallies 
connected with our end of the scheme. 
However I do believe that a lobby should 
be set up in Washington so our movement 
will have a decided effect there," Good- 
body continued. 

No plans have been formulated as yet to 
increase the enrollment above 200, the 
goal set for the first drive, as the leaders of 
the organization have decided to wait and 
see how the c<jllege receives the idea. If 
the collegia is still supporting the Veterans 
of Future Wars in June, an official meeting 
may be held, although the location is 
uncertain, since the invitation of the 
Pittsfield Veterans of Foreign Wars for a 
joint convention has been refused. 

"I shovild like to clear up one matter in 
connection with the movement," said 
.John C. .lay '38, Post Commander, "name- 
ly 'what is to be done with the money 
which has been collected during the drive?' 
The cash will not be (Micketed by the

Lacrosse Team Opens Season 
Against Dartmouth on Monday 

The Varsity lacrosse team will encounter 
Dartmouth Mtmday on Cole Field in a 
game which will not only mark theo]>ening 
of the Williams season, hut also the first 
time that a Purple ten ha' faced the big 
(ireen stickmen. 

To date Dartmouth has played nine 
games, and despite the fact that they have 
not l)een too successful against Navy, 
Pennsylvania, the Montclair A. C. and St. 
,Iohn's College, their ex|)erience and condi- 
tion gives them a decided advantage over 
the home forces who as yet have played no 
games and who have l>een hampere<l by 
freak weather during the past month. 

Although this is the first game for the 
Purple, they are expected to make a good 
showing liy virtue of the fact that their 
line-up was not seriously <lepleted by 
graduation. Captain Wally Potts in the 
net. Gravy .limes. Bill Cohendet, and 
Corny Hays, all regiilars on last year's 
successful team, will compose a formidable

combined auspices of the Williams Forum 
and the College Department of Fine Arts. 

Having traveled all over India, es- 
pecially to remote places which only few- 
people have ever visited, Dr. Bake is well 
familiar with India and her customs. 
Several years ago he was invited into the 
unexplored regions of Nepal by the Rjijah

an extensive tour of this country and plans 
to return to India late this year. Accom- 
panying him on the piano in his vocal illus- 
trations will be his wife who is also an 
authority on the Hindu music. 

Dr. Bake is coming to Williamstown 
through the courtesy of Mrs. Elizalieth

and Pittsfield, Mass., who is the founder 
of the music colony on South Mountain, 
Pittsfiekl, and the originator of the South

ate Track Team To 
Meet Purple Here Today 

Williams Handicapped By Absence 

Of Dissell, Ellis, Anderson, 

And Collens 

The Purple track team, weakened by 
the loss of four men and having insufficient 
power in the weights, will face a well- 
balanced Colgate outfit on W' eston Field at 
one o'clock this afternoon in the first meet 
on either team's Spring schedule. Pre- 
meet dope gives Williams little chance to 
emerge on the long end of the tally, but 
feeling among the squad is optimistic, 
since the exact strength of the Maroon has 
not yet been determined. 

Unofficial time trials on the soggy track 
during the past week have not been too 
heartening, in the opinion of Coach Tony 
Plansky, but track conditions have been 
generally bad, making running difficult. 
"Perhaps the times haven't been remark- 
able," commented Plansky, "but the wind 
and rain, combined with a loose track, have 
pushed the clockings 'way U]). One thing 
I do know is that the boys will give a good 
account of themselves Saturday. They've

that the famous leader will play here this 
spring if a mutually convenient date can be 
arranged. At present, negotiations are 
being made for May 2!l or :iO, dates whicfi 
do not directly interfere with final exams 
which start May 28, but leave Memorial 
Day free, continuing June 1. Neither of 
the times may be considered definite, 

Proceeds to Aid in Building 

Proceeds from the dance will g;« into a 
fund for the construction of a wing <Jii 
Lawrence Hall in which to house the val- 
uable music collection which Mr. White- 
man donated to the college last fall. Al- 
though several alumni showed a readiness 
to contribute to such a fund last Novem- 
ber when the trustees discussed the plans 
for the new addition, this will be the first 
effort to raise money for the purpose. 

Arrangements for the dance are now in 
such a nebulous state that it ia not known 
who will B|)onsor the affair. It is exjiected 
that Ramona, Durelle Alexander, and the 
King's Men, will ajipear as usual with 
America's Dean of Modem Music. 

Mr. Whiteman 's gift, which will be 
housed here as soon as satisfactory space 
can be found, represents a life-long collec- 
tion which illustrates the hi.story of 
American music from colonial days to the 
introduction of electrical instruments in 
the jazz era. It includes instruments, 
scripts, arrangements, orchestrations and 
records. Given to Williams for personal 
reasons, the primary motive for the gift 
was to provide opportunity for reaeiinOi in 
the field of music. Mr. Whiteman be- 
lieves that this country should have a 
center for the studv of .\merican music. 

Yearling Baseball, Tennis Teams 
Open Season At Willislon Today 

Freshman Sjiring sixirts will swing into 
action today when the baseball and tennis 
aggregations journey to Easlhainplon to 
encounter Willistcm Academy on court and 
diani(md. Bill Fowle's nine have leas than 
a week's outdoor practice behind them 
while the courtinen will go into their first 
meet with not so much as one warm-up 
session outside. 

Though Coach Fowle's line-up is still 
uncertain, it is thought that either Ben 
I'pson or Ken Mitchell will start on the 
mound with Bill Beard receiving. The 
infield is likely to be comprised of Boh 
Sommer at first, (!eorge Becker at second. 
Pete Seay at third and Larry Diirrell at 
short, while Dave Hall. Fin Hoas, and 
Howie Buschman will probably be .selected 
for starting positions in the garden. Wil- 
lislon is known to be strong this seastm, 
having defciited the .\nihersl freshmen 
12-4 in their only start to date, and the 
.\cademy should prove a real test for the 
Purple first year men. 

Inasmuch as a lack of Spring practice 
has given Coach .Stubby firaham no pre- 
liminar>- slant on his mpin<l. he will use the 
first six ranking players from la-M fall's list. 
This arrangement puts .\l .Iar\is, National 
Junior Indoor title-holder in the numlier 
one sjKit, with Bruce Biimhnin, .lim Bums, 
Warren Paine. Horton Bowen, and Dan 
Whitcly following in that order.

it recognition as a magnificent, 
triple-edged satire on war; war's 
.parasites, the bonuseers; and the 
lioniisccrs' toadies, the 
iiion and Senators, -a satire so per- 
fectly expressing widespread disgust 
as lo charm tliimsands of the na- 
tion's youth. Hut the Williams 
undergraduates are being called 
upon lo sujjport the niovcmcnt with 
more than the mere spoken word; 
they are being called upon to sign 
on the dotted line and make an out- 
lay in cash, cash of small denonii- 
nation but nonetheless cash; and 
they must at least make a guess as 
to the future of the V.F.W. before 
"shelling out". 

At its best the organization may 
be the opening wedge for a student 
lobby at Washington, a lobby that 
would have a good head start in 
being composed of intelligent and 
zealous members already grouped 
by their attendance at institutions 
of learning into local "chapters" with 
publicali(»ns and meeting places. 
In fact the V.F.W. is at present do- 
ing some actual lobbying and will 
continue to do so at least until the 
endowment by a somewhat Quix- 
otic friend for that purpose runs out. 
It even boasts the support of a 
number of "the people's repre- 

At worst, the little blue buttons 
should be purchased as a souvenir of 
one time when some of the educated 
youth of America humped them- 
selves to the extent of pointing a 
satiric finger at certain of their coun- 
trymen in high and low places, and 
turned on men whose self-righteous- 
ness makes ridicule the sole effective 
weapon, the laughter of a nation 
that laughs well.

is there and there is quite a group of en- 
thusiasts from the various rowing Pri'p

Eighteen Months' Trip In

ArousiiiK both the spirit of a<lvcnture 
and envy in every niend)er of the lar^e 
audience w liich heiird him speak. Captain 
Irviiif; .lohnson descrilied his tlirillinn and 
romantic trip around the world oti the 
ninety-two foot schooner, Yankee, with an 
all-anuitcur crew, Tuesday eveninj^ in 
.le.sup Hall. llluKtratiii»{ this voyage, 
whieb developed from a pipe dream on the 
author's farm in Kniield, Mass., ten yearw 
ago, with remarkable moving pictures 
which told the story of the thrills and beau- 
ties of the trip better than any words po.s- 
sibly could, the twenty-eight-year old skip- 
per had full attention as he traced the ]iat b 
of hi.s wanderings across the three major 
oceans of the world. 

Explaining the mass of <ietails and tech- 
nicalities which must he faced before such 
a crviise is vuidortukeii, Ca|itain .lohnson 
told bow he educated himself to the ways 
of the sea by taking jobs on all tyi)es <if 
boats which varied from the long-<'nded 
.America's Cup challenger, .Shamrock V, to 
the husky full-rigned grain racer, I'ekinn. 
When he bad lilted himself for such an 
undertaking, the lecturer told of how he 
started a world-wide search for a boat 
suitable for such a tri]i and linally found 
the Yankee, a Dutch North .Sea pilot 
■schooner, in Ipswieh, England, which lie 
litted out, sailed back to the I'nited .States 
to overcome his worst job of all, — that of 
(intling a grou|) of amateurs who wanted to 
go w ith him enough to pay for the privilefje 
and who would get along with each other 
living on the siune bout in close (piarters 
for eighteen nu)nths. 

Described Adventures in Pacific 

Hy means of his films and a running ex- 
planation of them, the speaker traced the 
path of his yacht down the Atlantic, 
through the I'anama Canal, and then out 
into the Pacific Oeean. Here the young 
adventurer told of meeting the famous 
Baroness Wagner and her two lovers on 
their idyllic island, stopping at Pitcairn 
Island, returning a group of Pitcairn Is- 
landers w bo ha<l become marooned on an- 
other island, to their home, and numerous 
other interesting incidents. 

Ca|)tain .Johnson then illustrated his 
visit to the active volcano of Krakatoa 
which a few weeks after the Yankee had 
left, dropped coni|)letely out of sight. 

studeids were "ti^, busy", while at other 
places speakers criticized the anti-war 
striki!, a Yale profe.ssor going so far as to 
tell his Connecticut State audience that the 
military defenses of the United Stales are 
one of the liulwarks of world morale. The 
general purpose of the strike seemed to he 
the vociferous approval of the Nye-Kvale 
bill to abolish compulsory R.O.T.C. train- 
ing although at some places the "Oxford 
Oath" not to fight in any war was taken.

I'(Tbaps the Captain's most interesting 
pictures were of the cremation ceremonies 
which he witnessed in Hall. Here, once 
(^v(!rv year, the bodies of all who have 
died are brought to tlie capital in tre- 
mendous biers which reach to a height of 
over eighty feet and which are (uirried by 
as nniny as 130 natives. After they have 
been borne in a hectic parade during which 
the funeral towers are swung violently 
hither and thither in un attempt to keep 
away from the devil, the bodies are taken 
out of the biers and burned. 

Captain .lohnson described to bis audi- 
ence the experience of meeting a cyclone in 
the Indian Ocean and then finally of round- 
ing the Cape of Good Ikpe and heading; for 
home. On the leg of the journey, the 
Yankee stopped at St. Helena, Devil's 
Island, and licrmuda, before reaching 
(llouccHler where the whole shii)'s com- 
pany arrived in i)erfect health but ten 
minutes after the time that Captain .lohn- 
son bad said they would land, one year and 
a half before.

Twenty-Eight Join Move 
To Revive Williams Crew 

Jay '38 Leads Meeting Thursday; 

Lake Pontoosuc Probable 

Practice Course 

A nieetiiiK li«l(l un the 8ti'p8 of Jf8u|) 
Hall Thursday afternoon under the 
leademhip uf Juh-i C. Jay '38 marks the 
first faint nmrinurinK» of elements in the 
underKfttduute Innly (lenirous of reviving 
rvwiiiK for the first time since Williams 
finished an iKnoininious ninth at the In- 
tercolleKiate UeKatIa at Lake KaratoKa in 
1875. No less than twenty-eight stu- 
dents with preparatory school rowiiiK 
ex|)erience attende<l the meeting and sig- 
nified their desire to establish the 8|Kirt at 
Williams on an informal basis. 

LaekintJ shells, oars, ami a lake in the 
immediate vicinity, the prosiwctive oars- 
men will be forceil to go afield for all the 
necessary requisites of the sport. The 
narrow, stony Hoosick River, formerly the 
scene of the interclass "bumpinK" races 
of the "Seventies", is no longer suitable for 
crew work, so that the proiKised Williams 
crew will in all probability find it necessary 
to use Lake Pontoosuc, in Pittsfield, for 
practice. Since the nearest thing to a 
shell in Williamstown is a ten-foot frag- 

ment of an old shell in the Alpha Delta 
I'hi dining room, the rowing associations 
of various ex)lleges and schools in New 
lOnglund are to l>e canvai«.scd in the ho|Hw 
that a practice barge and two fourniared 
shells may lie ac(|nire<l at bargain price 
from the ranks of the discardeil boats of 
th(»e organisations. 

Uarsmen from the leading rowing schools 
of the Kast, Kent, St. Paul's, Middlesex, 
Exeter, Choate, Asheville, and Browne 
and Nichols, are included in the list of 
the twenty-eight c^andidates who re|iorted 
at the meeting Thursday. The list of 
candidates f<illows: West '3(1, Coe, Ever- 
dell, Francis, Lyon, Roberts '37, D. 
Kaker, Harnard, Ulake, Butcher, Bygravc, 
Caldwell, Davis, Faunce, Hendrie, Jay, 
Moon, Perkins, Scull, Tenney, Wright '38, 
Berking, O. E. Jones, Knauth, Surdani, 
G. Williams, Witkower, and Wheelock '39.

Valuable replacements will be found in 
MacVane, Boyce, S. Seay, and Green, four 
of the twelve returning lettermen, plus

Dr. Dennett Talks on American 
Policy in East for Liberal Club 

Declaring that the time has now come 
to examine and revise the policies of the 
United States with regard to China an<l 
.lapan. Dr. Tyler Dennett briefly outlined 
the historic far eastern [xilicy of the l'..S. 
and the difficult situation into which it has 
led in his talk l>efore the Liberal Club 
.Sunday evening on the sidiject, "Projiospd 
Changes in our Far Eastern Policies." 

The president devotwl most of his talk 
to a discussion of the motives imderlying 
the "0|)en Door"and "Intenrity of China" 
principles of the I'nited States, stating 
that they were mainly philanthropic and 
incidentally economic and national. He 
proceeiled to show how a continuance of 
these policies and of the non-recognition 
policy with regard to Manchukuo leaves 
this co(mtr>" at the mercy of an incioent 
which might imavoidably lead to war with 
■lapan while it has not kept the .lapaneae 
from continuing their policy of conquest in 

American verbal int<>rvention in China 
during the regime of ,Tohn Hay in the 
"integrity of China" policy has led, in Dr.

Dr. Bake Reveals Hindu 
Music Basically Similar 
To Western Expression 

Audience Hears Rhythmic Oriental 

Melodies Rendered During 

Forum Lecture 

Ulusl rating the |)arallclisni between 
Hindu music and that of the Western 
worlil by the vocal representation of many 
characteristic songs, Dr. Arnold Bake, 
Dutch philosopher and world authority oi 
oriental music held spellbound u small 
audience in Jesup Hall last Sunduy eve- 
ning with hypnotizing melodies and intri 
catc rhythms of India. .Accompanying 
Dr. Bake on the piano was his wife, also 
an authority on the music of the east. 

".\ comparative study of nnisic will re- 
veal that the Indian system holds a po- 
sition comparable to that of Sanskrit in 
the history of Philology," said Dr. Bake, 
as he proceeded to outline the influence 
of the Indian music on that of the Occi 
dent, and to explain the fundamental 
differences. The nmsic of any nation is 
divided into two separate classes, the <li 
vine and classical nuisic, known in India 
as the Marga, and the Dcshi, or folk song. 
The former has a distinct and close affinity 
to the (ireek system, on which most of the 
classical music of the West is based. 
Rhythmic Pattern Main Difference 

The funilamentul difference between 
the modes of expression of the East and 
the West is the intricate rhythmic pattern 
of the East. The oriental measure em- 
ploys, for example, seven, eight, nine or 
ten beats to the bar. The division of the 
accented beats is not like the even sjjacing 
of the beats in western Music; instead the 
accents are spaced 3-3-2, or 3-2-2, or 
(i-2-2, rather than 4-4 or 5-5. It is this 
uneven spucing of rhe'uccenta' which im- 
parts the peculiar rhythmic quality i>o8- 
sesscd by the Hindu music. 

There existed parallels to this in the 
medieval EnglLsh folk songs, which Dr. 
Bake sang in bis baritone voice. There is 
also a similarity in the broken rhythm, 
slow lines followed by faster ones, with 
the folk .songs of the Middle .Ages. 
Parallelism also is present in the melodies 
themselves, the folk songs of the East 
stringing many sympathetic chords with 
t.hoseof the West. 

Yearlings Lose Baseball,

Baseball Team Loses, 9-3, as Upson 

Pitches Well; Jarvis, Paine 

Star in Net Play 

A defeat anil a victory marked the open- 
ing encimnlers of the Freshman spring 
sport sea.son when the yearling baseball 
tx-am succumbed to a hard-hitting Willis- 
ton aggregation at Easthampton .Saturday 
afternoon, 9-3, wliile the Freshman tennis 
team, |)laying out of doors for the first 
time this year, chalked up a l)-3 victory 
over the same school. 

(iood playing and short hits, but no 
scoring, marked the ball game up to the 
last half of the fourth inning, when (iruen 
doubled, Stepzick reached on an error, 
and Tompkins made a home mn to give 
Williston three counters. .Six more runs, 
including a homer by Montgomery, came 
for the home team in the fifth, seventh, 
and eighth innings. The Williams team 
often had men on the, but lacked the 
punch to capitalize, while it contributed to 
its own defeat with five errors. 

Purple Scores Three in Ninth 

In the ninth inning Williams rallie<l 
when Hayward, Buschman, Durrell, and 
Beard hit consecutive singles, intersjjersetl 
with a pass to Ross, sending three runs 
home, but the rally ended »8,lone8 linwl to 
second. On the whole the team hit well, 
hut failed to make the scoring drive, and 
generally .showed raggedness due to n short 
l>eriod of training, while the opposing team 
exhibite<l good teamwork. Ipmm pitched 
well for Williams, but MaePherson was 
wild, Buschman and Durrell standing out 
in the hatting. 

.Iar\'is, numlier one player, and Paine, 
numl)er four, stood out in the tennis, each 
winning his singles and doubles matches.

Inning Single 

By Franck K. Davis '38 

.\ towering home run to the cinder 
truck in left center field in the fourth inn- 
ing and a triple to the same spot in the 
cigbtli by slugging Walt Fuchs, drove in 
four runs and gave the Varsity baseball 
team a 4-2 victory over Middlebury In the 
first home game of tbe season, Friday 
afternoon on windswept Weston Field. 
Hurry .Stevens in his .second start of the 
season, held Duke Nelson's team to seven 
scattered hits and, bearing down In the 
l>liichcs, worked himself out of .several dan- 
gerous holes which were caused by mental 
lapses In tbe Purple infield. 

Middlebury drew the first blood of the 
afternoon in the second inning when Kirk 
walked, stole second after Phinney had 
bunted up to .Stevens, and then was driven 
home by Nash's single to short right field 
wben Fuchs' throw to tbe plate was slowed 
up by the strong wind, .\gain later in the 
inning the Blue and White team threat- 
ened as Guild's bingle sent Nash to third 
and Mcucham was walked, filling the 
basses. ^ However, at this |H)lnt Harry 
Stevens put on the |)ressure and forced 
Hoehu to fly feebly to Eddie Stanley for 
the third out.

The next inning saw Middlebury again 
In scoring positicui when l.lns starting the 
Inning off with a single, .\nderson went 
down swinging, and the Kirk hit to the box 
where Harry Stevens caught the ball, 
pivoted, and threw to second for the force 
out, but his throw was wasted as Stanton 
failed to cover the bag which put two 
ruiniers on base with but one out. Phin- 
ney then grounded to .Stanton who re- 
layed tbe ball to Forbes to i)ut Kirk out at 
second and just missed catching Pbimiey 
at first, but Nash hit sharply to the 
l>itclicr's box where .Stevens knockeil the 
ball down with his bare hand and threw to 
Phil Stearns for the final out. 

The fourth proved to be tbe big inning 
for Charlie Cadlwcll's team. Hank .Stan- 
ton singled to left field to begin the inning 
and then advanced to second on (luild's 
wild pitch. Then, after Moseley had filed 
out to the pitcher, Fuchs poled his home

About oiu'-fiflh of llio Senior class lists its futuro occupiition us 
"uncertain". Of tliose who have simply iiulicatetl "business", il iiitiy be 
surmised that numy have nothing definite in view. Of those who are 
gointt to gratluate school or have actuiiily signed up for a job, how many 
are relatively sure of a lifetime vocation? 

It would be to e.xpiain this as the result of the depression. 
As a matter of fact, no matter how bright the economic situation, a huge 
proportion of the men being graduated every June is uncertain because 
there has been .so little basis for making a choice. Of course, the admin- 
istration is glad to put men in touch with jobs, but nothing is being iltiiie 
in a more comprehensive way to remedy the situation. 

A partial remedy for this situation would be for the reorganized 
Forum to assist in bringing representatives of the chief lines of occupation 
to Williaiustowii for a series of lectures next winter when the days are 
short and the evenings dull. The undergraduates would respond (juickly 
to the chance to get the inside story on the requirements, the difficulties, 
and the pleasures of each field. Some would be cured of castles in Spain. 
Some would be attracted to a new possibility. Finally, it would be to the 
advantage of the undercla.ssmen hardly less than the .seniors who are

Haverford Bows in Tennis 
Team's Opening Match 6-3 

(Continued from First Page) 

When Tom Hniine and .Mm Campaigne 
were cru.shed in the number three doubles 
match by Biaucher and Goldmark, 0-1," 
0-1, the final issue of the meet was left in 
doubt until Weller and Kingman, playing 
number two dout)le.s, came olT the courts 
6-0, 0-1 winneis over Parry and Bevan. 
Phipps and .lennings in the number one 
doubles, although uncertain of their 
ground .strokes, teametl perfectly to eke out 
victory over Finley and Weightman, 
0-3, 7-5, pUiying the last set in light so 
dim that each side was kept guessing at the 
positiim of the hall. 

Today the Purple faces an untried but 
reputedly .strong Kowdoin team on the 
Suge Hall courl.s. With a nucleus of 
seven lettcrmen from last year's successful 
.sqviad and boasting four state champions, 
the Polar Bears promise powerful oppo- 
sition. Captain Phipps contemplates no 
changes in the singles line-up for this 
contest tiecause of the fact that challenge 
matches will not start until after the Maine 
men have been faced. The first two dou- 
lilea teams may shift places, however, and 
Gaskell ,ind Dayton may play the third 
doubles match in place of Hraine antl Cam- 

Following is a summary of the meet:

Flickers Desire is an excellent show, des- 
pite the preview. Completely 
conlrarv to the "(teaser", which suggests 
only a sev s|)eclacle, the film turns out to 
be a Liibitseh comedy of the hrsi rank. 
Directed by Frank Boizage, up until this 
time one •<< the leatling sentinientali.sls in 
tliepriifchsioii. Desire is a satirical romance 
of an Aineiican automobile engineer (Gary 
Cooper) mid a jewel thief (Marlene Diet- 
rich). 'I'lic ph)t, especially the robbery of 
thcneckliice in Paris, is ingenuous, though 
it lets down a little at the end. We don't 
want to lie too disappointing about the sex 
angle; Marlene has not lost her talents 
seen in .Morocco and The Blue .1 ngel. She 
has lost, however (and luckily for her), 
that teni|ieraniental faker Von Sternberg; 
and lias emerged from a series of stifling 
Eiistern melodramas to a competent, 
amusing movie mas(|uerading under the 
name of Desire.

task of tilling Cliupin Hall for the event, 
relaxed in the lobby of the buihling as the 
concert began and .said "Thank the Lord 
we've pretty well filleil the place. Now 
we'll be able to wipe out the memory of 
that fatal concert four years ago, when 
there were oidy ii handful of spectators for 
the Vassar girls." Manager Tiliiiits 
offered students attending the concert a 
free entrance to the dance in the Gartieltl

and appeared well plea.sed at the manner 
in which the hire had been snatched.

Dr. Dennett Talks on 

American Far East Policy 

(Continued Jrom First Page) 
Chinese have always expected intervention 
of a more material nature. After stating 
his opinion that ,Iai)an could be slopijed by 
arms only, Dr. Dennett a.sserted that the 
philanthropy of the American people had

'Music Library' Organized 
To Circulate 581 Records 
Received From Whiteman 

students May Borrow Discs From 

Representative Collection 

At Stetson Hall 

I Work towards the egtiibliHhinent of a 
•'imiBic library" in Stetson Hall was bcnun 
thin wi'pk inime<liat(!ly followiiiK the ar- 
riviil of 5S1 rocorils, classical and modern, 
llii'Kif' <'f I'aul Whiteman. A coiiunittee 
cif six wliich met with Dr. Dennett last 
Tuesday determined that the records 
sliduld be shelved in the basement of tlic 
Lihrary, calalonued, and let out on the 
siinie (jiMieral system that books now are. 

The "Christmas uift" of Mr. Whiteman, 
who recently contributed his lifeh>n); col- 
lection of musical iiiBlruments and musical 
dnia, is csi)ecially valuable since there are 
few other such representative collections. 
TIk! records were selected by Professor 
Chiirles I.. .Safford, who was aided by 
unilerKra(hiat<>8 in the choice of jazz records. 
The collection was chosen to have con- 
tiiuiity, and its siilections raiiKC from 
"The New World Symphony" throURh a 
iiunibert)fStravis8waltzes to a rendition of 
the "St. Louis Ulues". According to Mr. 
.Siifford, the records will be of f;rcat assist.- 
aiicc in the music classes, but are de- 
sinned ])articularly for student use. 
Unpacking Already Under Way 

The unpackinK of the fourteen lar^e 
(■uses which now rest in the Library base- 
mint has already beuun in order that as 
soim as they arc indexed they may 1h' 
iniiile available to underxraduates. An 
cliiliorate catalogue will be com))ilcd as 
widii as iiossible, but it is urdikely that it 
Mill be fully completed before ,Iuly. 

The student liandlinK of the records was 
the topic of much of the conunittee's dis- 
cussion. Mutilation of any sort will be 
the responsibility of the borrower, it was 
decided. It was also delerniined that a 
"thorn needle" i)robably wouM be ({iven 
out with each record in order to alleviate 
the wear resultinR from the use of the 
ordinary steel needle. With each record, 
furlherniore, will ({<> a printed caution in 
the form of a strong plea for extreme care. 
Details of Loan System Incomplete 

The type of carrier in which records will 
he issued is now beinn investiKated. 
Oilier details of this new lending service 
are to he worked out in the future. 
When the system Kfts under way next 
fall, however, its nature will deiM'nd on the 
seriousness and responsibility manifested 
hy the students. 

The conimillce which conferred Tues- 
iliiy consisted of President Dennett, 
William N. C. Carlton, Librarian, 
nriee II. Bloedel, Professors Charles I..

By Francis Boardman, Jr. '38 
Tlie (rus(ee decision to dis(!ontinue the 
eight year old policy of each year admitting 
a German exchange student to Williams 
was disclosed Thursday by President 
Dennett. The ruling was effected last 
February in anticipation of action similar to 
(he recent Nazi decree (luil all German 
students going abroad should receive 
siiecial training in the principles of na- 
tional socialism and the attitude they were 
to adopt towards foreign acquaintances. 
Dr. Dennett asserted that Williams did not 
care to have foreign students who did 
not come here "with an open mind". 

Chiefly through the influence of Der 
Deutsche Austauschdicne«t, German stu- 
tients wishing to study in foreign nations 
have likewise been orderetl to present a 
certificate of "political responsibility" 
to the Reich Ministry of Education. This 
certificate may only l^e obtained from a 
l«)litical functionary on testimony of en- 
thusiasm for national socialism and of 
loyalty to Chancellor Hitler. 

Students Warned Against Liberalism 
The government has two methods of 
checking students, who lacking enthusiasm 
for the Nazi regime, will neither attend 
one of the iiropaganda schools nor obtain a 
certificate of "political responsibility". 
In the first ])lace, the Reichsbank will not 
release the necessary foreign exchange; 
and secondly, no srch student will be 
allowed (o 8(udy again in tiermany. 
He will (bus be preven(ed from (uking 
State examinations leading to a profes- 
sional career. It is likely also (ha( he will 
be punished in a concentradon camp. 

The discovery (hat s(uden(s are useful 
as foreign propagandis(s has led (o (he 
governmcnCs urging speeinlly trained 
students to study abroad. No definite 
course of instruction for such young Ger- 
mans has been ascertained, but it is known 
(ha( they will be warned agains( (he pit- 
falls of "liberalism". 

Dennett Wants "Open Minds" 
According to a Berlin dispatch in the 
New York Times, "There can he no doubt 
that the exchange or other German stu- 
den( who njiiiears on .\merican or odier 
foreign campuses in (he fu(ure will be ex- 
pected (o devote S(mie of his time (o prop- 
aganda for (he Nazi regime for (ierniaii

Tlit> announct'ineiit that Williiims will not receive :i Geniiiin exchange 
stiuient next year will be met with real regret, but with an ackiuiwledg- 
nient that siieh action was iiecessiiry. The decision was forced upon the 
college not through the action of the student himself, but because of the 
purposes of the men behind him which have now become perfectly evi- 
dent. How could we accept a student, knowing that in order to (lualify 
he had taken a course in propagandizing, and that he would be subject 
to recall and punishment if he should waver in his Nazi faith? 

This year's exchange student, like his seven predecessors, has been a 
worthy son of the Fatherland, whose, loyalty to his country has won the 
respect of the college just as his personal qualities have won our friend- 
ship. At a time of divergence in national ideals, it is just such personal 
contacts that bridge the gap and prevent the easy generalizations which 
are made about each other and afterwards are regretted. For this reason 
we have given the exchange system the benefit of the doubt, as to its real 
motives. The recent statement of future German policy has now re- 
moved the last shadovN' of doubt, 

Williams College, with its fine liberal tradition, has nothing to fear 
from the influence of one or of several students within its walls who hold 
different ideals and who seek new converts. To extend them scliolarship 
aid, however, is quite another matter. If the German authorities really 
feel that it is important to spread their gospel in Williamstown, they at 
least will have to pay the bill themselves. 

Trustees Scrap German 

Exchange Student Policy 

(Continued from First Patie) 
would ])rofit by what an American College 
can offer. It should not be expected that 
anyone so handicapped would be consid- 
ered liere. We don't select our scholiirship 
recipients that way." 

Foerster Regrets Discontinuation 
Ernst Foerster '3t), of Hamburg, stated 
on hearing the trustee's decision, "After 
having spent one year here, I must say 
that I feel very sorry that the exchange 
system with Williams College is dis- 
continued. I had one of the most profit- 
able years I liave ever had, and 1 under- 
stand that so has the Williams excliange 
student at Munich." Later he affirmed 
that "having had this experience of a year 
in America, I am particularly glad that the 
number of exchange students next year 
will probably be greater, the mutual 
understanding of the nations for this 
reason being furthered". 

Foerster stated further, "I regret that by 
certain parties some attempts have been 
made recently to characterize the idea 
of exchange students as 'vicious and dan- 
gerous propaganda' with the innocent 
American youth as its object. If one 
exchange student happens to be a Nazi, it 
should not be a surprise. The elections 
for student self-administration turned out 
with a 90% National Socialist majority 
even during the Republic." The German 
Embassy at Washington, D. C, was also 
queried for a statement, but no reiily had 
been received at press time. 

Recalls Olympic Controversy 
Questioned as to one of the fundamental 
purposes of exchange students, namely 
"to teach us", President Dennett said, 
"If we wished to study the Nazi system, 
we should have no diffiuclty in securing the 
services of a German professor, since many, 
who have had to leave their country, are

trying to gain teaching positions in the 
United States." Reports of Dr. Dennett's 
stand were broadcast nationally on Thurs- 
day night. 

The trustee decision, its justification ap- 
parently firmly strengthened by definite 
German action, is analogous in its raison 
d'etre to the purport of the charge which 
Dr. Dennett and thirty-nine other college 
presidents made in protesting United 
States participation in the Olympic games 
in Germany. "We believe that these 
games are being used by Nazi Germany as 
an instrument for the pro])agation of her 
ideals which represent the destruction of 
democratic and progressive society," the 
educators affirmed. 

German exchange students at Williams 
— the first one came here in 1928— receive 
financial aid from the College to the extent 
of $1,(K)0.00 per annum. Their status 
is that of any other undergraduate while

Spring Life here iii;]lhc spring can be so 
Fever iK-aceful. Of coiirst!, then- arc 
(he little nen^esslties of lite like 
hour tests and the annual battle with 
Spring St net impresarios about our warm 
weather (■ii«end)lc, hut sonieliow even 
these haziiicis don't loom as large as they 
might. Wc don't know just how to 
aiuilyze oui (jemuetlicliktil (1 guess we get 
around!), hut maybe it's just the ivlief 
from things like the Thompson Concerts, 
the Adelplii<^ Union, and frozen radia- 
tors, which are well out of the way until 
next year. 

Sketch intelligensia, of course, ami 
Record editorialists, get a little anno.\ed 
at our lethargy. They .say it's at the root 
of every campus ill. They say it's the 
Evil Influence of conservativism and stulT. 
They say ne ought to have a retuiii to 
rugged individualism. Hut we s!iy rugged 
itidividualism for us means staying away 
from pen-to-pen combats with Hearst, 
Iieddling little blue V.F.W. pins, or trying 
to keep hacking away at the proverbial 
campus ailments. The rest of the year, 
maybe, we'll get excited about almost any- 
thing, but the spring is a sort of extra-cur- 
ricular iSabhath for us. 

About the biggest stir we can think of 
which alTects us these days is Houscparties. 
On the sun porch the other day we were 
thumbing through Vogue (and Vanily Fair 
too, for all we knew), when we came on the 
results of their poll to find out just what 
college girls think of college men. Most 
of the centers for our Housei)arty soince 
material were canvassed, so we thought wc 
ought to be interested. We discovered a 
lot of things that didn't matter mucii, such 
as the remark of one girl that "men should 
pluck their eyebrows", or "men are 
shocked at the Dutch-treat idea, but man- 
age to get plenty of entertainment in other 
ways" (the little vixen! And she seemal 
so pleased at the time!). 

We finally ran across an answer that 
made us purr like a cat. "The ideal man 
has a serious soul and a comic veneer," we 
read. Girls can be so articulate at times! 
And so here we found ourselves analyzed. 
Not so comic, certainly, but at least placid 
sun-baskers, disguising our passion for In- 
tellectual Beauty with Buddhistic passiv- 
ity. Now that the curtain has been draw n 
we're wondering how the play will begin. 

Flickers Friday, May 1 — The Magnificent 
Obsession, Hollywood's version 
of Lloyd Douglas's Green Light, featuring 
Irene Dunne and Robert Taylor, turns up 
at the Walden over the week-end. It' 
neat a bit of intellectual hokum as we've 
seen, and is sure to be elTective to the re- 
laxed spectator. The more curious movie- 
goer, though, would have a hard time see- 
ing the hidden facets of the central theme 
the "magnificent obsession". This mania, 
which motivates almost everybody in the 
plot, is simply the Christian concept to do 
good to others without letting them know- 
about it, as ordinary a bit of ethics as we 
ever learned in Sunday School. And we 
weren't too apt at that sort of thing, either. 
This way of life is elevated to an amazing 
degree, being translated as a mysterious, 
subtle obsession and a Path to the Great 
Beyond. Robert Taylor is effective in the 
late stages and Irene Duime throughout. 
It's a good show, but don't get to thinking 
it out. Tonight's bill is Love on a Bel. 
We've already had five addicts after us to 
give it a boost, so give it a try. 


Cap and Gown Sunday 

Seniors are reminded that tomorrow. 
May 3, is Cap and Gown Sunday and

Four Freshmen Teams To 
See Action Over Week-End 

Baseball, Tennis, and Golf Squads 

To Face Hotchkiss Here; 

Stickmen Away 

Four Kreshiriaii teams will go into ac- 
tion this Saturday when the baseball, 
tennis, and golf combinations meet teams 
Iroiii Hotchkiss on home territory and the 
yearling lacrosse ti'ii jouriifys to Decr- 
licld in the hope of repeating last year's 
initial victory against the Deerlield stick- 

The baseball team, having tasted defeat 
at the hands of Williston Academy, is 
eager to make a good shdwing against the 
Hotchkiss nine. Practically the same 
line-u|) that faced WiHislon will represent 
the I'urple on Saturday. The battery will 
be taken care of by Hill Heard behind the 
bat, while either Ken Mitchell, Nelligan, 
Hill KIder, or Mad'herson will twirl. 
Only one change has been made in the in- 
(ield, iilacing U. T. .(ones on the initial 
sack, while the mittield is to remain the 

Yearling Netmen Face Hotchkiss 
With one victory and one defeat behind 
them, the yearling tennis outfit has high 
hopes of downing Saturday. 
Al .larvis, undefeated No. 1 man, Bruce 
Burnham, Warren Paine. ,lim Burns, 
Hart Bowen, and Dan Whitely are ex- 
pected to represent Williams, although 
Dave .lohnston. former Deerfiehl star, 
and Cay Collester, if they are successful in 
I'liallenge matches this week, have a good 
chance of making the line-up. 

Little is known about the freshman 
golfers to date owing to the late start 
of the season. The team will probably 
be chosen from the following men who 
have c|ualified during the past week: 
Bobby .loiies. .Jim MacArthur, Howie 
Shelile, l/iuis Krautoff, Tim King, and 
Ace Williamson, .ludging by their per- 
formances in the past, the yearling golfers 
should (1(1 well against Hotchkiss, despite 
the fact that Frank (lillett, himself a 
former Hotchkiss star, will not be aljle to 
play because of a leg injury. 

The usual lack of experi(»ncc will handi- 
cap the men when they encounter 
Deerfield Academy away on Saturday. 
t'nder the coaching of Dave Francis, 
the yearling ten is slowly shaping up. 
Dave Swanson, Moffett, and Warden will 
probably the attack, while I,ee 
Means, .lack MacCreur, and Vandiver 
have been holding down the mid-Held 
|X)sitionsin practicese.ssions. Thedefeiige 
which will be hard put to it to ward off a 
highly touted Deerfield attack will be made 
up of Gil Morse, Spence Sil vert home, and 
Barky Brown. .lohnny Bradley will oc- 
cupy the net. 

Saturday, while Stradley, besides winning 
the 120 high hurdles, led the Purple sweep 
of the broad jump, followed by Alden 
Briggs and Ted Ballard. .lack Curt in 
eased Coach Tony Plaiisky's problem in 
the weights by a victory over the Maroons 
in the hammer throw and should add a like 
number of ixiints to the Williams total in 
this event thi.s afternoon.

SUPPLIED THE KEY that unlocked the door 
( to the wit and humor of the world, as well 
as that to the sober things, the poetry and the 
philosophies. Before the age of printing, much 
of the humor consisted of the sort generally 
called "smut." It was ribald and unconventional. 
Wit was confined mostly to the clowns or jesters 
and probably their jokes were a bit stale and 
rather indecent. 

Omar well records the rose, which laughingly 
scattered its petals to the earth, sending frag- 
rance and beauty to the world. Roses are sup- 
posedly dignified, beautiful and staid. Yet, 
Omar saw the essence of laughter there, a joy 
that the rose felt in giving its portion of pleasure 
to the world. 

Printing can be dignified; it should always be 
beautiful and frequently staid. Yet, it may just as 
well cause laughter or smiles as well as create 
deep learning or arouse great thoughts. It is 
even more needed than the rose, whose blooms 
brighten the garden, perfume the air, and which 
tells its own story when sent as a messenger. It 
blooms but to die, but the bush itself njay hve on 
and propagate other bushes that will bear rose 

after rose eternally. Printing frequently dies 
because it is allowed to parish, but it can be re- 
vived, the plant rejuvenated and kept going 
eternally if properly cared for. 
Roses are used to grace weddings, as tokens of 
remeinbrance at funerals, as sweet sentiment 
from lover to lover, as decorations for the home, 
and they radiate loveliness from perfection. 
Printing is also used at weddings, funerals, and 
as sentiments, while books and pictures (all 
products of printing) lend decorativeness to the 
home and have a loveliness of perfection in form. 
Both are alike in many attributes — but mostly 
in that they bring joy, pleasure, comfort and 
beauty to the world, to all people, all places and 
all things. Wherever there is laughter, wherever 
there is beauty, one or both of these will be seen 
and their presence felt. 

Let, then, color, humor, happiness, beauty, taste, 
cheerfulness, abide in printing, that it may lend 
itself more fully to the good of humanity. It has 
a place for the sober things of life, it is true, but 
even more so, it has a place to fill when the sober 
realities are to be forgotten and the smile Ughts 
the face of all mankind.

Hurst '32, Sargent '33 Chosen 
Secretaries by I). S. Justices 

l''i>llowing the custom of appointing out- 
standing young law school graduates as 
secretaries to the .lusticcs of the Supreme 
Court of the United States, it has been re- 
cently announced that .lames W. Hurst 
'32, of Rockford, 111., and Christoijher S, 
f^argent '33, of New York City, have been 
niadc secretaries to .lustices Brandeis and 
f 'nrdoza, re8|)ect i vely . While at Williams 
both of these men were prominent in cur- 
riciilar and extra-curricular activities and 
«erc outstanding students at Harvard Law- 

Hurst served on The Record Board 
during the four years that he was in col- 
lege and was elected Kditor in-Chief his 
senior year. He was Secretary of the In- 
lernntional Affairs Club in his .Junior year 
and as n senior he was president <if this 
K"'"P, a member of the Non-Athletic 
Council, and I'hi Beta Kappa. He also 
was on the Handbook board his Sophomore 
year, the Undergraduate Concert Com- 
mittee his last two years, and at the end of 
his second year he was awarded Sophomore 
'"mors. Huret was a memlwr «t the 
Commons Club. 

i^rgent serve*! on The Record hoard 
for four years and he was both Editor-in- 
Chief of this paper and Editor of the 
(•uUrlmrnitinn. He was president of (!ar- 
Ro.vle, active in dramatics, and in the 
wnior class elections he was voted Class 
Politician by a large vote. As a sjienker 
'le was prominent during all four of his 
years at College an<l is especially remem- 
bered for his impassioned address on 
Mntintain Day. Sargent was affiliated 
«ith Theta DOtaChi. 

That none of the fifty-odd fellowships 
offeretl to German Exchange Students 
through the Institute of International Ed- 
ucation for l!)3fi- 1937 have been cimcelled 
as a result of the Berlin despatch in the 
New York Times of April 25 was stated 
Kilt unlay by Dr. Stephen Duggan, Direc- 
tor of the Institute, in a message to The 
Record. Dr. Tyler Dennett stated that 
the money formerly U8e<l to aid the Ger- 
man Exchange Students at Williams would 
be used for some sort of scholarship, and 
that he had no objection to admitting 
sclxdars from other nations; also, that it 
was a good idea to have men from several 
countries, but that no direct action had 
been taken as yet. 

Widespread attention on the front 
pages of national dailies and network news 
flashes wais giveii to Dr. Dennett's dis- 
closure on Thursday of the discontinua- 
tion of the exchange scholarship at Wil- 
liams through the action of the Board of 
Trustees last winter in anticipation of 
action similar to the Nazi decree that all 
Ciermim students intending to study 
abroad must present a certificate of 
"lM)litical responsibility" to the Reich 
minister of education in addition to re- 
ceiving special training in the principles 
of natioiuil socialism and the attitude to 
be adopted toward foreign acquaintances. 

Mr. DuRgiui's message to The Record

Individual Prize With Total 

Of 72 Points 

Brilliant sailing by .lames P. Lewis '39 
and his crew, William J. Howe '37, 
coupled with the consistent work of Horace 
B. Bent '3f) and Silas B. Adams '37, won 
second place for the Williams Yacht Club 
in the intercollegiate dinghy regatta which 
was held at Bristol, R. L, Saturday. 
With a first and two second places out of 
the six races, I^ewis was the high point 
scorer of the day from among the fourteen 
crews which represented seven colleges, 
but more consistent team work by the 
Brown skippers, who were sailing from 
their home club, gave them the team 
prize, 130 points to 113. 

Although handicapped in the morning 
by a dense fog which necessitated post- 
poning the races for a short time, the rival 
sailors had plenty of work and excitement 
before the day was over, as a st rong Sout h- 
west breeze sprang up and turned Bristol 
harbor into a mass of choppy white-caps 
and more than one of the crews found 
themselves swimming in the none too 
warm waters of Narragansett bay after the 
tricky wind had capsized their boats. All 
but one of the ten foot Dyer "dinks. ' 
which were loaned for the occasion by the 
members of the Narragansett Bay frost- 
bite fleet, sailed the races with reefs 
tucked away in their sails, and the rugged 
individual who bared the elements under 
full canvas, was forced into this uncom- 
fortable iK>sition by the absence of reef 
points in his boat's sail.

More October Plans Told 

Dr. Harry A. Garfield '85, President 

Emeritus, To Function As 

Grand Marshal 

By Francis Boardman, Jr. '38 

Three world famous philosoi)hei« will 
figure in the Mark Hopkins Centenary 
jirogram here next October, it has been 
learned from Director O. Di(^kinson 
.Street '01. President-Emeritus Harry .\. 
Garfield 'S5 has accepted the appointment 
to be Grand Marshal at the eelehiation, it 
was also disclosetl. 

The three speakers are Professor Wil- 
liam E. Il()('king, of Harvard I'niver.sity, 
Professor V\'ilmon H. .Sheldon, of Vale 
I'niversity, and Professor-Emeritus Rufus 
M. Jones, of Haverford College. The 
choice of three such outstanding .scholars 
and lecturers was made in view of the fact 
that Mark Hopkins is .so widely as-sociated 
with Philosophy. 

Celebration Opens October 10 

The Director revealed that the program 
will be opened on Friday evening, October 
10, when Professor Hocking will deliver 
an address to what is expected to be the 
largest alumni body ever to return en 
masse to the campus. The following 
morning is to be devoted to a series of 
symposiums, one round table being con- 
ducted by Professor Sheldon. Dr. Jones 
will give the sermon at the .Sunday chapel 
services. The Friday evening talk is to be 
on "Science and Religion a Hundred 
Years Ago" while the morning will he cen- 
tered on "Science and Religion Today". 

The "hapi)y choice" of Dr. Garlield as 
Grand Marshal recalls to mind that he was 
one of the last students to attend a class 
of Mark Hopkins. President of Williams 
for the twenty-five years previous to Dr. 
Dennett's induction in 1934, Dr. Garlield 
now resides in Washington, D. C. It was 
his father, James A. Garfield '5G, nine- 
teenth President of the United States, who 
immortally defined the idejil univensity as 
a log with a student on one end and Mark 
Hopkins on the other. 

Formerly a lawyer, and a professor at 
Western Re.serve and Princeton Univer- 
sity, Dr. Garfield assumed the Presitlcncy 
of Williams in 190S. From 1917 to 1918, 
he served untler President Woodrow 
Wilson as United States Fuel .Adminis- 
trator. It was through his efforts that the 
famous Institute of Politics was founded, 
luid it was during his term that the im- 
port4int institution of honors work was 
added to the Williams curriculum. At the 
time of his re.sigimtion in his seventieth 
year. Dr. Garfield quoted Mark Hopkins 
as saying, "1 wish to resign that it may 
not be asked why I do not resign." 
Hocking Given Degree Here 

Profcs.sor Hocking received an L.H.D. 
degree from Williams in 1923. L>uring 
his life he has taught at the Aixlover 
Theoh)gical Seminary, the University rtf 
California, ^'ale, Princeton and Harvard, 
At Harvard, where he has remained 
since I02O the distinguishetl lecturer holds 
the chair which was previously occupied 
by .losiah Royce. A member of many 
inqiortant intellectual organizations, he was 
once President of the American Philo- 
sophical .A8.sociation. .Among his Iwtter 
known Ixioks are The Meaning of God 
in Human KiprTirnce. Human Nature and 
it.i Remaking, Man anil the Stale, and 
Typr.1 of Philosophy, the last two of which 
are required texts at Williams. 

Likewise a lecturer of wide experience, 
Dr. .Sheldon wiis once head of the American 
Philosophical Association. He has lieen 
at Vale for a numlier of years and is well 
kn<iwn as the author of Strife ofSyHlems. 

E<Iitor, preacher, lecturer, trustee, and 
author, Rufus M. Jones has made an im- 
portant figure of himself not only as a be- 
lovetl l)enef«ctor to Haverford, his Alma 
Mater, but in the world of philosophy. 
He is a popular speaker and has written 
many books on Philosophical problems.

organization, to regulate the system of 
competitions employed by non-athletic 
units, and to distribute more eijuitidily (he

rigid rec|uircinents for reports to insure 
better business methods Ijy undergraduate

provement lias been shown in the i)r(impt-

crea.sed its surplus of undergraduate funds 
liy careful nianagement and disbursement 
so that it will be possilile, as stated in the 
lead paragraph, to reduce the undergradu- 
ate S. A. C. tax for next year. To insure 
protection of these funds the Council has 
amended its Ky-baws to retjuire the Treas- 
urer to bond himself to cover the sum of 
the Undergraduate funds in the hands of 
the Council. 

"As a protective agency the S. A. C. 
holds insurance for member organizations 
on their property in .le.sup and Cha|)in 
Halls, k(>eping an up-to-date inventory of 
the belongings of organizations concerned. 
Besides the S. A. C. is ready to reimburse 
member organizations in the case of 
emergency, providing this emergency 
arises from 'misfortune rather than niis- 
nianagemeiit', as in the case of the Puriile 
Knights when their music was stolen in the 
fall of 1934. The .S. A. C. also loans 
money to member organizations at the 
current rate of interest for the conduction 
of their business when aforenientioneil or- 
ganization can present adequate collateral 
or security for such a loan. When a new 
organization is sttirted in the iriterests of 
the t'ndergraduates and funds are needed, 
the .S. A. C. stands ready and willing to 
provide the necessary funds. Such was the 
case with the Band last fall, the money for 
instruments being imivitltvl by the S. A. C. 
the S..\.C. owning the instruments as the 
property of the student body. 

"This in summBr>' covers the functions, 
and the nctivities in accord with these 
functions of the S..\.C. for the past year. 
Tlie financial report of the S. A. C. will be

Kditor of TuK Hkcoui). 
Dear Sir: 

The action of the trustees in discontiiiu- 
ing the (lernian exchange sluileiit policy 
might be just i liable, but. the explanation of 
the move given liy TiiK IIkcohi) gives some 
evideiKH' of confu.sed thinking. 

Three possible ju.slilications of the act 
seem to be (I ) that the College cannot af- 
ford the SI ()()0,l)0, (2) that the excliange 
student himself is not in a position to protit 
by his stay here, (',i) that the rest of the 
student liody does not proHt by his pres- 
ence. Which of these three is the real 
motive for the action? 

If it is the first, there is no further prob- 
lem and discussion of the principle of the 
thing is hypocritical; if not, the mention 
of the expense is irrelevant. 'I'liere is some 
possible validity to the second objection, 
but even tlie presentation of this aspect of 
the problem gives no evidence of the i.ssue's 
having been tlanight through. The "open 
mind" argument is of absurd. If 
the expression is anything nnae than 
em|)ty words, it defines the purpose rather 
than the condition of an education. But 
even granting the educational opportuni- 
ties of the exchiuige student are somewhat 
crain])ed by political retpiirements, it is 
hard to believe that being ex])osed for a 
year to a liberal atmosphere will not have 
some effect on the mental processes of the 
most narrow of dogmatists. 

The third jiroposal which defines the 
only really important issue of the problem, 
is right in ])rincii)le but seems wholly unre- 
lated to the actual situation. If Williams 
students were Ijeing converted to National 
Socialism and our liberal viewpoint threat- 
ened, some arbitrary act of censorship 
would be in order until we were more ma- 
ture. But this, as your editorial oliservcs, 
is not the case. And if not, the pre-seiice 
of an alien thinker is of inestimable value 
to a small, isolated college such as Wil- 
liams. Situatei.1 as we are, we are in real 
danger of losing intimate contact with 
certain destructive viewpoints, which we 
will be called upon to tight against in the 
future. This danger is one of t he disadvan- 
tage of a sniidl college ;is against a metro- 
jMilitan university. .\iid the trustees' 
action is to be regretted as a further spon- 
soring of the hot-house liberalism Williams 
is so apt to drift into. 


P. A. Bred!) '30 

To the Editor of The Recoup, 
Dear Sir: 

In respect to the recent action of the 
college in discontiiming the policy of ex- 
tending a scholarship aninially to a student 
from ( ierniany, the officers of the Deulscher 
Vercin feel that the reason given by Dr. 
Demiett for taking such action, in i)articu- 
lar, the necessity for open-mindedness as 
"One of the indispensable conditions for 
study in an American college", is unjusti- 
fied. On the contrary, American colleges 
have a great ojiportunity to liberalize 
these henceforth "Ntizified" Gerniiin stu- 
dents. By exposing future German stu- 
dents to the American open mind more 
might be done to enlighten these propa- 
ganda-ridden Germans than by allowing 
them to stay at home. International stu- 
dent co-operation rather than antagonism 
will do a lot more to jirevcnt the realization 
of the Veterans of the Future Wars. 

I'nfortunately Dr. Dennett and several 
members of the faculty are known to have 
a i)rej\idice against the jiresent German 
political .setup to the extent of exaggerating 
the facts at times. This country has little 
to fear from German propaganila in stu- 
dent circles. One of the main features of 
the exchange student servit^e is the oppor- 
tunity for learning an opposite point of 
view, but not for trying to imi>ose .^meri- 
caii culture on the exchange student. Dr. 
Dennett is entirely correct insofar as he 
states that a German |)rofessor could teach 
more adequately the Nazi system than an 
exchange student, but this would mean a 
loss of that (tersonal contact, and exchange 
of viewpoint under the old system. We 
regret Dr. Dennett's striking another blow 
for the cause of American Nationalism.

Witor of Thb Record. 
Dear Sir: 

It was «ith regret that I reati your edi- 
torail of May 2 and realized that you have 
approved the administrative action dis- 
continuing the German Exchange Student 
policy. The Record is as well known for 
its "fine liberal tradition" as Willianis Col-

greatest actor on Ihe screen. In The Lijv 
of LuuU I'dHtcur he creates in the role of 
the famous French scientist and humani- 
tarian annlher in the series of hrilliaiil 
|K"rfornianees. The picture itself liu'iis 
out to be a rare example of llollywooil 
genius; biogniphical facts are ilraniatized 
without losing their semblance of reality. 
For the hisl three days of the week (how

lege; your editorial seems a departure 
from that tradition. 

A liberal view of the situation would 
have revealed at once the falliicy of Dr. 
Dennett's statement, which formed the 
basis of his argument in favor of the move, 
that an "open mind is one of the indis- 
pensable conditiims for study in an .VnuMi- 
can college". None of us come to Wil- 
liams with open minds. The banker's .son 
arrives here as a freshman with a mind 
more closed than that of the German ex- 
change student; he sits through two 
classes of social sciences a year for four 
years, and graduates with a mind still as 
firmly committed to certain principles as 
when he came. One has had bis doctrines 
insidiously instilled by the family; the 
other openly by the government. The 
result is the .same. 

Certainly there can be no fear lest Wil- 
liams men should become converted to 
Njiziism by the propaganda of some ex- 
change .student. One year here lias con- 
vinced me of this: Willianis undeigradu- 
uates do not join movements, except for 
the Veterans of Future Wars. 

To many of us, even though we are not 
Nazis, it has been exceedingly interesting 
to know some one who represents a doc- 
trine of great significance. We have heard 
so much of German youth; here we htivc 
had opportunity to discover why tlu!y lie- 
lieve as they do. We have seen the other 
side of a jjicture that has been repeatedly 
distorted. In his talk before the Liberal 
Club and in his contribution lo Sketch the 
present exchange student has alTorded us 
first-haml evidence as to bow German 
youth looks at the world today. 

It is the bringing together of many dif- 
ferent ideas and beliefs that makes the 
true liberal college. The decision lo dis- 
continue the exchange student system can 
leatl only to an increase in Williams pro- 

The administration's move may have 
value in that it gives to Williams publicity 
on the front page of the llvriM Tribiiiir, 
but as a protest against the Miller regime 
it fails, and as part of a policy to keep 
Williams liberal it is in itsell so illiberal that 
it neutralizes its own

Improved tc^ainwork, pspoeiully l)y the

\\ illianm Varsity team un over- 
wlK'hnin){ 11-0 victory over the M.I.T. 
sticknic'ii on Cole Field Saturday after- 


Illlike the Dartmouth Kame of less than 
u week before, the Purple functioned more 
as a unit than through the individiiul 
player.s. 'riirounliout the eiic'ounter Wil- 
liams lH>ld a decided ed^e and seldom <lid 
the M.I.T. attack work the ball within 
.sIrikiiiK <lislance of the l'ur|)le riet.s. 

Two Koals apiece were scored by Al 
.Sirallon, Tom Duncan, and W'ally Hoyee. 
l"'ive of the eleven points were netted by 
"ixmy" offensemen whose teamwork at 
times tended to overshadow even that of 
the \'arsily first strinj;. 

The veteran Williams defense of (Jravey 
■lones, Bill Cohenilel, and Corney Hays 
broke whatever opponent attack developed 
so that Walt Polls was forced to make 
but few saves all afternoon. While the 
"pony" defense was not attacked very 
often they were etiually successful in 
slaving off the M.I.T. plays .so that Hill 
MacV'ane used only a few brilliant stops 
to keep the opponents blanked. 


over the running track, and a workmanlike 
double play on the jiart of the Werner- 
DeKrce-Sbawcombinalioii when Mike bat- 
vis connected for a hard grounder to short 
in the fourth inning. 

Following the crucial wild-pitch play by 
Kirley in the eighth, which let in what 
lalf^r i)roved to be the wimiing run, the 
N'ermonters staged a late rally. .Johnny 
Williams worked Fuchs for a i)ass, and beat 
out Moseley's throw for a steal, liob 
Degree coimeeled for the second time 
driving in Williams on a decisive blow to 
center held, putting I'^uchs into a hole 
from which he did not extricate himself 
until Roger lieadle, i)inch-liitting for Hud 
Hudzyna, bolibled an one d<nvn to 
Hunk Stanton at short, forcing Degree out 
al second base.

vided the thrills of the afternoon by two 
steals fnuii first to .second, while Captain 
Hill Moseley's much publicized "gun" di.s- 
couraged the use of the steal signal from 
the Vermont bench. 

In the first inning, after Fuchs had re- 
tired the Catamounts in one-two-lbree 
order, the Purple got ofT to the lead which 
it never relinquished. Eddie Stanley, 
leading otT, earned a walk to first and beat 
Hart's throw by a wide margin in a steal to 
second. Hill Mosoley, coming to the plate 
after Doug .Stearns and Hank .Stanton had 
gone out on a fly and strikes respectively, 
lushed out a hard liner over short which 
sent Eddie 8Cam|)ering hemic with the first

by both teams, enlivened by Phil Stearns'

Still in 111 spite of the track team 

the money, dropping one to Middlebury, 
Tiffy Cook turned in another 
beautiful performance in the 220, Nick 
Holmes stayed up in the pointscoring and 

HikI C'hapimin and Dave Crenory came in 
closer than Siametfl' twins to take the 
2-inile, so thinns still look bright in that 
direction. Then the liuU dished 
it up 1 1-0 to M.I.T., the (eimis team triiii- 
ined I'liion 7-2, and the freshman tennis 
squad, looking e«|KH!ially good with lanky 
A\ Jarvis in the number one sjwt started 
their winning streak (we trust) by taking 
Ilotchkiss 5-4. 

.\» we said, the Derby is tough on 
favorites, but an across the board bet on 
Brevity still paid off. We'll stick with 
Brevity for the I'reakness, for he ran bis 
heart out after being pocketed and nearly 
falling at the barrier. Our money on 
'I'eufel was delinitely chilly, but we know of 
at least one pound note that increased 
twenty folil in those few seconils, which is 
ver^' bad on the moral fibre.

While at Williams he has been the faculty 
adviser of the Adelphic Union. 

J. S. Glaser Announces Plans 
For Intra-Collegiate Debates 

New Adelphic Union President To 

Limit Number of Humorous 


A definite stand in favor of intra-colleg- 
iate debating was taken by .Julius S. Claser 
'37, President of the Adelphic I'nion, in a 
.statement to The Record Thursday night 
regarding his plans for that organization 
next year, (llaser, wfio arrived at this 
conclusion after discussion with faculty 
members and associates ,in the Union, 
chanicterized the plans as "semi-nebulous" 

During the past few seasons, it has been 
the custom of the debating society to re- 
strict formal debates to intercollegiate en- 
counters. Next year, however, an effort 
will be made to inaugurate a regular series 
of engagements between two teams of Wil- 
liams undergraduates. Opposing groups 
from the Political Science major, for ex- 
ample, may he selected to debate on a po- 
litical subject, with faculty members from 
that department as judges. 

More Serious Topics 

Glaser also announced a definite restric- 
tion in the number of "humorous" topics 
chosen as discussion subjects. This is in 
direct opposition to the policy adopted this 
year by Ceorge F'oriiey, '30, who actetl in 
(ilascr's capacity during the past season. 
Such resolutions as "liesolred. That wo- 
man's place is in the home", and "Kv«olveil, 
That to travel hopefully is better than to 
arrive" were included in this year's Adel- 
phic Union subject choices. The new 
president stated, however, that while the 
primary attention will he paid to serious 
topics, .semi-humorous debates will also he 

The trial debate system, an innovation 
this sea.son, will jmibiibly be abandoned, 
Glaser said. His feeling is that the meas- 
ure is too obviously n "police" measure,

'Sketch' Poll Proves Student Body Opposed To

Despite campus rumors that the poll 
was financed by sundry interested individ-

Skvlch, announced Thursday night that the 
poll was planned and conducted under the 
auspices of Skrich. It was also stated by 
Wolfe that Ernst Foerster, (Jermany ex-

night when a poll, conducted under the 
auspices of >S'fr((r/i, was taken at the various 
social organizations upon the campus, re- 
sulting in a sweeping vote which implied 
coiidemnalioii of the recent action. The 
poll climaxed a week of hectic discussion

Kraduates involving tlie question as a

from avowed "libernls", and numerous

Victory Over Middiebury 

Purple Sweeps Singles, Losing Only 

Number Two Doubles Match 

In Dull Meet 

Sweeping the singles and winning all but 
the Number Two doubles match in unin- 
spired fashion over an uninspired foe, the 
Williams varsity tennis team gained its 
fourth straight victory of the season with 
an 8-1 victory over Middiebury on Sage 
Courts Thursday afternoon. Tom Braine 
'31) moved into the lin(!-up at Number Six 
as .lennings, Gaskell, and Dayton each 
went up a notch to Gil in the gap left by 
Captain .lerry Phipps, out temporarily 
with a bad wrist. 

Bare Kingman, jilaying at Number One, 
provided the few thrills of an otherwise un- 
interesting afternoon by completely out- 
classing Brow 11, of Middiebury, to the tune 
of !)-(), (i-l after dropping the opening set at 
5-7. Kingman bore down hard after his 
sloiipy beginning, and left little doubt as to 
his superiority by taking eleven straight 
games from his opponent, while Bill Day-

Annual Glee Club Banquet 
Hears DePeyster's Report 

Recommends Informal Singing By 

Social Units As At Amherst 

And Chicago 

Over forty members of the Glee Club 
gathered in the Phi Delta Theta House 
Monday evening for their annual banquet. 
The meal was climaxed by a report of 
Frederick A. DePeyster '3f), retiring busi- 
ness manager, who gave a detailed account 
of the expenses, hours of rehearsal, number 
of concerts, and mileage traveled as well as 
several recommendations for informal sing- 
ing on the campus. 

Fletcher Eggert '36 was toastmaster and 
provided most of the entertainment. .\t 
the close of the speeches the whole groui) 
went to Dr. Dennett 's front lawn and sang 
college songs and then repeated the process 
at the Physics Laboratory for Dr. Mc- 
Elfresh, who is to retire this June. 

The recommendations of DePeyster in- 
cluded fostering of the musical clement in 
the college by having informal group sing- 
ing, preferably on the basis of the .social 
units. It was suggested that between 
luncheon and the track meet on the Satur- 
day of houseparty week-end students and 
their guests would start at the Delta Psi 
house and walk down Main Street, sto|> 
jiing at each house to sing and to listen to 
one of the songs of that house. The idea 
was evolved from a combination of the 
custom in vogue at Amherst where all the 
singing is done indoors and from that 
practiced at the University of Chicago 
where students gather aniund a courtyard. 

According to Nelson Kimlier '30, leader 
of the (lice Club, "plans are still in the 
air." It was felt that it was a little late to 
begin organizing it this year, hut that in 
the future it might be an agreeable func- 
tion of the houseparty week-end. It was 
also suggested that in the future the Glee 
Club give a cup to the group singing the 
best song as an incentive for interest and 

Stuart Scores Ace 

.leff Stuart '3(i joined the select ranks 
of the hole-in-onc club Thursday when 
he canned a 200-yard mid-iron shot <m 
the tenth hole of the Tacimic Links in 
the process of a round with George 
Norton '37. This is the second ace in 
two weeks, Dick Swan having recently 
turned the trick on the shorter fifteenth. 
Stuart's shot was unusual, to say the; disesrding the accepted methiHl 
of rolling it into the cup, the hall landed 
in on the fly, wedged between the edge 
of the hole and the flag. Stuart was re- 
ported to have said that the course 
wasn't 90 tough after all. 

Fowie, Wolfe, Tie For First in 
'Time' Test on Current Affairs 

W. Farnswortli Fowlc '37 and Marshall 
J. Wolfe '38, tiexl for first place in the 
Current Affairs test 8|M)iisored by 'I'ime 
magazine which was held in Hopkins Hall 
Saturday afternoon, with an average of 
ninety-seven percent and each will re- 
ceive twenty dollars in cash for first iirize 
and in addition a year's subscription t<i 
7'imc because of their high marks. Irvin 
Kibicoff '30 and C. Donald Gates '37 won 
second and third prizes respectively, with 
averages of ninety-four and ninety-two 
per cent and also will receive a year's sub- 
scription to Time as well as the ten and 
five dollar (irizes which go to third and 
fourth places. 

A disapiKiinting number of students 
numbering only sixteen in all, of the forty- 
odd which signed U]), took the test. The 
prize for the highest marks in the four 
classes, the chief jirize winners excepted, 
were won by W. W. Keen Butcher '38 and 
Lamar D. Whitcher '39 with ninety-one 
per cent apiece, and C. Blackmer Hum-

six per cent each. 

Trackmen Meet Cardinals 
On Wesleyan Track Today 

Wesmen, With Well Balanced Team 

Favorites Over Weakened 

FHirple Runners 

Eager to olTset the defeats by Colgate 
and Middiebury with a victory in the 
first Little Three meet of the season, the 
Williams trackmen will encounter a 
favored Wesleyan team at Middletown at 
1.30 this afternoon. In spite of the 85-50 
defeat at the hands of a powerful Sabrina 
cinder machine the Cardinals, backed by a 
69?6-65}^ win over Middiebury two weeks

of the past two ei.vounters, forming the 
nucleus of the opposition. 

In the 100-yard dash the Purple is 
handicapped by the loss of Joe Kremer, 
who pulled a leg muscle in jiractice this

Golfers Meet Brown, Harvard 
Holy Cross in Boston Matches 

Friday, May 8. With a record of none 
for two in the Eastern Intercollegiate Golf 
League, Williams representatives jour- 
neyed to Belmont this morning to meet 
Brown, Harvard, and Holy Cross in a 
•scries of matches today and tomorrow on 
the links of the Belmont Country Club. 

As usual, the line-up has undergone a 
change since last week-end's losing en- 
counters with Vale and Dartmouth. Paul 
Freeman has been moved up to number 
one position where he meets this afternoon 
(ieoige Knos of the Crimson who reached 
the quarter finals of the National ..Xmatcur 
last fall. Captain Dick Dodge will be in 
second ])lace, with JefT Young, moved up 
from number six, and Dick Swan making 
up the second foursome in that order. 

Chuck Huston will be in the fifth jiosi- 
tion with Jim O'iSullivan getting bis first 
experience in ii \'arsity match as number 
six. l'nlcs,s they suddenly get a hot 
streak, there seems to be trouble ahead tor 
the golfers, who were dealt their third hard 
blow of the year when .\b KIlis injured 
himself a few weeks ago putting him out 
for the entire seasim. Holy Cros.s, with 
the famous Willie Tuniesa in top place is 
repute<IIy Ixiasting a stronger team than 
usual, and Brown has Billy Dear, fonncr 
interscholastic champ in its line-up as well 
as the Dclniit Bobby Jones who followed 
his name-sake into the headlines two years 
ago in the National at Brookline when he 
upset Francis Ouimet in the first round. 

Captain Dodge annoiinceil that I>ef 
Porter and Ward West would join the 
team tomorrow and would probably both 
sec .service either against Holy Cross or 
Brown. It was also announced that the 
team would meet Middiebury on May 19 
in a previously non-»chedule<l match and 
that attempt was lieing made to arrange a 
meeting with the Colgate forces over 
Houseparty week-«nd. 

Rushing Will Begin Four

Mechanics of System Inaugurated 

Last Fall Not Altered in 

Any Department 

Rushing Week Will Be Completed Three 
Days Following Official College Opening 

Conflicts With Important Events 

On Fall Calendar Lead To 

Change in Date 

By Bayley Bunce '38 

Incorporating no new changes in the 
nieclianics of the system, the li).'5(i rushing 
period will begin Thursilay, September 24, 
four days preceding the beginning of 
classes the following Monilay, according to 
the recent ruling of the 1937 Undergradu- 
ate Council which has been approved by 
the Executive Committee. The first 
period of dates will be completed by .Sun- 
day night, it has been determined, while 
the entire business of rushing will be ter- 
minated three days following the official 
opening of College. 

General campus satisfaction following 
last fall's plan of rushing has resulted in the 
present Council's making no changes what- 
soever in the niachiiiery of the complex 
system. The principal reason underlying 
the change in the time for the beginning of 
oiieration rests in the fact that certain 
events scheduled on the College calendar 
would conflict with the busy week if the 
time were not set back. 

Gray Larkum Explains Early Date 

"I hope that it is not felt that we are 
driving undergraduates back to College tflo 
early," stated Gray B. Larkum '37, presi- 
dent of the Council, "since they must real- 
ize that things are starting next year a 
week later than they normally do. As a 
matter of fact, we all are coming back two 
days later than we would if tlie old date of 
September 21 still held. Furthermore, 
there will be nothing but rushing to occupy 
the students during the first four days of 
their return." 

The important Mark Hopkins Centen- 
nial week-end celebration, which is sched- 
uled October 9-12 will be held ten days fol- 
lowing the termination of rushing, the 
Council announced, while under the plan 
followed last fall there w ould be but a week 
in which to prepare for the general campus 
participation which is being planned. The 
Princeton football game will bei>hiycdthe

Rowing Practice to Start

I'ndcr the leadership of John C. Jay and

svvereil the cjill a week ago Wednesday, 
and it is ex|)ecteil that they will all get a 
chance to engagi- in informal rowing this 
spring with an eye to sclieiluling a few 
formal races next sea.«on. -Vt the iireaent 
time the college has given no sanction to 
the plan, and the move will lie pmnioted 
entirely by the prosiiective oarsmen them- 

Af long as there is only one shell the 
crew B.<ipirsnt.'< will have to go over to the 
Pittsfield lake on alternate days trying out 
different groups in the txiat but Jay «n-

of obtaining two four-oar Iniats from V!id- 
dlewx, which would ease the situation 
considerably. Either Mr. Tmip or Mr.

No. 12 


After considoniblo doubt as to its paternity, yesterday's poll on the 
German exchauKe Hi-hoiitrship ha.s finally been adopted by Sketch, which 
takes full re.sponsiliility for this rattier indecisive excursion in the dim 
hinterlands of ('ani|)us opinion. The trouble with tlie poll, of course, was 
that it subnierjjed the real question. The last part might better have 
l)een wortlod "Should Williams pay the piper while the Nazis call t he tune?" 
For, the point al issue is not merely whether we should enroll Nazis at 
Williams, Let us have large numbers over here; they are educationally 
valuable for us, even if Williams cannot be so for Iheni, IJut, it must ap- 
pear on the face of it wantonly extravagant to give liberal training free of 
charge to a man who is bound, by inclination and allegiance, to reject 
everything such training aims to give him. 

There is little chance of Williams undergraduates becoming Nazified, 
but if that should happen, the authorities of a truly liberal college could 
not (m any but personal grounds object. Furthertnore, the discontinu- 
ation of the German exchange does not show the administration to be 
narrow-minded about even though ,such nuvy be the case. The 
action is purely and simply to prevent $1000 of the College's battered 
resources from annually going up in smoke. 


A combination of unusual factors as published elsewhere in this issue 
makes the early rushing plan the best way out from every point of view. 
It will be important to observe whether the efficient system inaugurated 
last fall will function better than ever with rushing beginning before 
classes. No precedent is necessarily being created, but the experiment 
is most timely.

To tlic Editor of The Record, 

Dear Sir: 

I reluctantly enter the controversy con- 
cerning the problem of the German Stu- 
dent Exchange in order to rescue a few 
fundamental considerations from the ob- 
livion to which .some of your correspond- 
ents have consigned them. 

Everyone will admit that Exchange 
Students in order to justify their function 
must possess an unusual coml)ination of 
qualifications, both personal and intel- 
lectual. Der Deutsche Akademeiiiinche 
Austnuschdienst under the able direction 
of Dr. Morsl)ach made tlieir selections on 
this assumption for years, and within the 
last year or two he and his staff "resigned" 
to make room for a director more closely 
associated with the Nazi regime. Dr. 
Morshach himself was for a time confined 
to a concentration camp. 

Up |to, and including the present, the 
Exchange Students have been of idmost 
uniformly excellent caliber. I would 
rather preserve this tradition unimpaired 
than leave it to deteriorate under the in- 
fluence of political considerations. For it 
must be obvious, with the change in per- 
sonnel and purpose of the AustansMHmst, 
that the political qualification will liecome 
the predominant one in the future selection 
of Exchange Students. The recent news 
dispatch from Berlin printed in the 
New York Times merely confirms con- 
clusions that Williams College authorities 
reached some time ago. It is not the 
cause, but the justification of the action 
which the College took. 

It is not necessary to argue with any 
one who knows the fate of Cicrman .scholar- 
ship at the present time that the injection 
of political considerations into the ^elec- 
tion of students or teachers inevitably 
produces an inferior produrl. Tlie simple 
issue is — shall Williams College pay $1 ,000 
annually for an inferior tyiie of student, 
merely for the sake of liaving a Nazi 
on the campus?

Leonard To Be Arbiter Again 
The Committee on Rushing of the I'n- 
dergraduate Council will again settle the 
questions arising during the year in regard 
to the pledging of men following the week 
set aside for the function, and will legislate 
on whatever action may be taken concern- 
ing the breaking of pledges. Former Dean 
John N. Leonard will also return as Arbiter 
during the week of nislung, and will judge 
whether any case of violation of the rush- 
ing agreement should be laid before the 
Undergraduate Council for action by that 
body. Mr. Leonard will make his head- 
quarters in the Freshman Quad again next 
fall, for the purpose of answering all ques- 
tions on the part of the freshmen .

Vermont way, aud had a late-season con- 
version. We were jjarticularly interested 
in Jim's idea to move bis ski-tow to Sheep 
Hill, making Williamstown a reid rival 
with Pittsfield's Bousquct Tow in getting 
the week-end crowds. If the move goes 
through, all sorts of complications like .ski 
trains from New York, more business for 
the Walshes, aiul less jirivacy for local 
amateurs will turn up, but .Mm wasn't 
any too sure al)out the whole thing. 

They're talking about a new trail up 
Greylock, too. Designed by Charley 
Parker (no relation). Coach of the .\in- 
berst squad and C.C.C. technician for the 
New York-New England district, Presi- 
dent Roosevelt's triple letter men have 
already surveyed the prospective run. 
If the final plans are approve<l by the 
Bronxville regional office, the project will 
get under way. 

The new course is for intermediate 
rather than exjiert skiers — local novices 
were wary of the difficult Greylock run — 
with a maximum grade of twenty-two de- 
grees as compared with the thirty-three 
degree angle of the Thunderbolt, and will 
drop oidy half as far. We're looking for-

At times both clubs looked fairly well and 
l)layed sonic nice ball liut quickly remem- 
bered themselves and settled back to 
Imekinx, but as Umn as the home club 
collected a few hits and His Shanty Fuchs 
parked another in the stands for tlie circuit 
we haven't any kick coming. As n matter 
of fact, the Purple was hitting the hall 
fairly well; Moseley not three for five, the 
.Stearns faction hit two nice ones, Stevens 
collected three for five and Hank .Slinijer- 
land, new to the line-up lieal out two that 
were very niee. If the boys can keep this

Miscellany The Tennis team continued 
its string of victories in 
trouncing Middlebury 8-1 .. . The track 
team, leaving today to meet Wesleyan to- 
morrow, is running into tough luck; Joe 
Kremer is out of the dashes owing to a 
pulled tendon, several other members have 
run into minor injuries and ineligibility, 
and the fact that some of the hoys find the 
social whirl a little too tough for them 
makes it hard on the men who are out there 

trying The Yanks and the Red Hox 

are still watching each other for the break, 
and the nation's favorite rookie, .Joe 
Dimaggio is burning up the hitting column. 
We'll have to wait until he has swung 
around the circuit once and the pitchers 
have a line on him before we cut him into a 
share of the peimant. 


Professor W. B. Smith Recipient 
Of Social Science Research Gift 

Professor Walter B. Smith of the Eco- 
nomics department was numbered among 
the forty scholars who received research 
gifts from the Social Science Uesearch 
Council last Sunday. The money granted 
liim by the Council is part of a fund of 
$23,650.00 to be ilistributed among men 
who have already begun a research pro- 
ject and will he of great assistance in his 
work on the history of the second Bank of 
the United States. 

Twenty-three of these grants-in-aid are 
for research work exclusively in the United 
States while seventeen were made to fur- 
ther surveys already begun in Europe and 
Asia. Although <lechning to mention the 
exact amount of his particular sum, Pro- 
fessor Smith said, "The Council was more 
than generous in its gift to me, and I shall 
he able to accomplish a lot in England this 
summer that I have been wanting to do for 
a long time." 

Purple Overcomes Early 

Lead to Down Colby, 9-5 

(Continued from First Page) 
'i"he team sulTered a severe loss in the 
first half of the fifth inning when Itabbit 
Forbes was spiked in his ungloved band as 
Maxim slid into second on an attempted 
steal. Mose had made a jwrfect throw 
to the diminutive second sacker and as he 
sloojjed to put the ball on Maxim, the 
latter attemi)ted to slide under him and his 
spikes caught Forbes between the thumb 
and first finger of his right hand. After 
the game Trainer Schenck estimated that 
Rjibbit would be unable to i)lay for at 
least three weeks. 

Walt Fuchs will seek to extend his string 
of victories to four this afternoon when the 
Varsity ha.seba!l team meets Boston Col- 
lege on its home field. Boston has always 
been noted for its l)aseball teams and this 
year its nine appears to be better than the 
average as it already boasts victories over 
Navy, Tcm|)le, and Peiui among others, 
and its losses have been few with a shutout 
defeat by the Blackbirds of Long Island 
University standing out as its ])ooresi 
showing to date.

Of Projects in Honors Work 

Individual work in the sciences will (te 
placed (Ml display at a meeting of the 
.Science Club Thursday evening at 7.4,') 
in the Tlamipson Physics Laboratory. 
Projects carried through hy the students 
and in some cases hy memhcrs of the fac- 
ulty in cimnection with Honors Work, 
sjieeial work in advanced courses and re- 
search, are all to have a part in the pro- 
gram which is an innovation at Williams. 

At 7.45 in the lecture room, representa- 
tives of the various departments will 
comment briefly on the nature of the indi- 
vidual work being done in thgir fields. 
Following this, in one of the laboratory 
rooms, students and facility members will 
display and demonstrate apparatus, tech- 
niques, and results of work which has been 
in pnigress. 

The meeting ofTers an opportunity for 
science students to observe the activities 
of workers in fields other than their own, 
and is intended also to give non-scientists 
an insight into some of the work tieing 
done in the Williams laboratories. It will 
he open to the general public. 

Election of officers for the year 193fi-37 
will also be held. 

Ticket Sale for 'Whistling 
In the Dark' Starts Today 

Cap and Bells Spring Production 

To Break Old Tradition of 

Classical Play 

Mntutay, May 11 — Having alreadv rung 
the aesthetic bell once this year with its 
presentation of OiilimnI Bniinil in De- 
cember, Cai) and Bells managers will start 
ticket sales today for the new offering, 
Whislliiig in the Dark, to be staged in 
Chapin Hall at S.OO p. m. Friday. De- 
spite difficulties such as those experienced 
in casting the feminine roles, and changing 
directors in the middle of rehear.sals, ad- 
vance .\gent Theodore H. Noehren '3N 
officially reported "it is a worthwhile 
Houseparty production." 

\\ itii such a persuasive selling point, 
.■\gent Noehren has commence<l the .sale of 
tickets in the Gartiihl Club anil frater- 
nities, and annimnced that thev may 
be obtained frimi him, by lelejjhoning 123. 
Breaking the tradition of presenting a 
classical play in the spring, the long-de- 
liiyed selection of WlnMng in The Dark 
came as at least an indirect result of the 
poll conducted in March by President 
.lohn F. Dingwall '37, at which time the 
undergraduates ex|)res.sed almost unani 
mous objection to plays of the former 
t.viK", and voted in favor of modern 

.\fter a number of try-outs, which of 
necessity, delayed progress on the jilay 
.several days, Mias Patricia Coleman and 
Miss Betty Zimmerman of Benningtim 
were chosen for the only two feminine 
roles in the play, Tol)y and Hilda, re- 
siieclivel.v. Added to the difficulties in 
getting imderway, which were originally 
caused by the long deliberation l)efore 
finally choosing l)etween the Ernest Tniex 
comedy-meloclrama and The Tailor .\fnile 
Afan, was the sudden illness of Dingwall, 
acting as director, after little more than a 
week of rehearsing. William B. .Sprague 
'37 was moved up from assistant director, 
while Thomas fS. Morgan '3.S, was ap- 
poinleil to help him. At the time of 
.Sprague's promotion, Vice-President John 
H. Rallantine, .Ir. '37 expres.sed the tnie 
spirit of a Cap and Bells trouf>er when he 
said, in a press conference "To coin a 
phrase, the show must go on".

To W'illiani.s as u wliolc, .Mark Hopkins k'fl a ureal horitane. Since 
his time there have lM»on many chunRes in tlie size and material 
e(iuipment of the colk'ge and in tiie natm'e of tlie ciirricuiuin. But, in a 
chanKinft worki, Williams has retained a most important (jualily which 
first i)ecanu' apparent in his administration — a certain sense of dignity 
and good manners. Sometimes it has degenerated into an unnecessarily 
extreme akxifness, but wo like to think that as Williams men take their 
place in the world, it is translated info responsibility and leadership. 
If this be true, the alumni who retiu'n for the .Mark Hopkins Centennial 
next October will not only increase the solidarity antl continuity of the 
college, but may also be themselves contirmeil in this tradition. 

To the undergraduates, the methods of Mark Hopkins as a teacher 
are of particular significance. He was probably the only president of the 
college in whose selection the student body played a decisive part — and 
with good reason. In a time when most educators sought to make their 
students wise by injecting large (luantities of facts, and to build up their 
character by rigid rule and stern exhortation, he found a better way. 
Instead of trying to mold his men in a set form, he would bring out their 
own individual inner qualities of mind and character through cla.ssroom 
discussion. This give-and-take technique dates back to Socrates, but 
Mark Hopkins deserves much of the credit for its revival as an es.sential 
element in present-day education. 

As for the importance of his personal influence on his students, it may 
seem incongruous to our generation, but the records give us no choice 
other than to accept it as an historical fact. Looking back over the past 
of Williams College, there have been greater scholars, greater orators, 
greater administrators, but the essence of greatness itself is most clearly 
to be found in the harmonious and sympathetic personality of Mark 

Shuman and Four Others 

Appointed by Trustees 

(Continued from First Page) 

Noted in tlie world of political science, 
Dr. Schuman first attained national 
prominence fourteen months ago when the 
Chicago Herald-Examiner accused him, 
President Robert L. Hutchins and others, 
of Communist activity. The Heurst 
paper demanded his immediate resigna- 
tion from the University. In a letter 
which was printed in the New Republic, 
other liberal magazines, and many college 
newspapers, the professor showed that 
he was not "an adviser to Moscow" that 
he was not "disseminating communistic 
literature in the United States" nor de- 
signedly misleading "our fine young 
people" and bringing them up "to be dis- 
loyal to our American ideals and insti- 
tutions", and that he was not stupidly 
favoring the "brutal and bloody tyranny 
of Soviet Russia". 

Dr. Schuman was described by the 
Hearst Press as a "Red", and an "Ameri- 
can panderer and trap-baiter for the Mos- 
cow mafia". He stated he had been 
"grossly misquoted" by the Herald- 
Examiner, and other Hearst papers 
throughout the nation. Dr. Schuman 
feels that Hearst is "a propagandist and 
forerunner of American Hitlerism" and 
should be met with a counter attack by 
"all Americans who still value their lib-

Kngland championshipa in the breast and 
backstrokes and has capturefi two national 
Y. M. C. A. records. At various times he 
has captJiined the Roxbury Boy's club, the 
Boston Y. M. C. Pi., the Boston Swimming 
Association, and the Red Cross Examiners 
Corps teams. 

As a coach Boh Muir has lieen suc- 
cessful, having traine<l many New Eng- 
land champions, a B. S. A. team which 
held eleven senior New England Cham- 
pionships at one time, and consistently 
good Harvard Freshman teams. 

The thirty-nine year old coaeh ha« 
gained wide experience at Boy's camps. 
Beach clubs, Schools, Colleges, and in the 
C.M.T.C. Camp Devens. He is a mem-

Yearling Linksmen Humbled 

By Clark for First Defeat 

Williams' yearling linksmen, conquerors 
of a rlrong HotehkisH team in their only 
previous start this season, laiwed Saturday 
to the sii|>erior play of an invading Clark 
School aggregation by the close count of 
5-4. I'lerct', number one man for the 
visitors, turned in a brilliant 75 to trim 
Hobby .limes Sand 3, while outstanding for 
the I'iir|iie was Ace Williamson, who re- 
corded u 78 to beat AIIh'c 4 and 3. Aside 
from these two winning rounds, no exlra- 
ordinar,\- golf was displayed, Howie She- 
l)le'8 easy triumph over his opponent 8 and 
7 being the only other feature. 

Jim McArthur lost a close match to Ed 
Brown 2 up and I to go, and teaincil with 
Bobby .lones, lost the best ball engag(v 
ment to the invader's number one and 
two men in a close encounter. After this, 
Williams fared better; for although Frank 
GilU'tt lost his singles match one down, 
he hooked up with Williamson to score 
over .\ll)ee and Hillnian in handy fashion, 
while Louis KrautholT likewise was vic- 
torious with Sheble where he had failed 
alone 5 and 3.

The Little Three 

Because of the crushing 80-,'),') defeat 
wliieli the.leffmen infiicled on Wesleyan at 
Pratt Kield on May I the eneouiiter be- 
tween Williams and AiiiliersI here on Fri- 
day w ill decide the Little Three track title 
for the 19311 season. .Saturday's victory 
Hives Coach Tony I'lansky a possible 
clianee to .send llie Purple on lutlie cinders 
for a win over the powerful Sabriiias and a 
coiifereiiee crown for his first year as head- 

Mid-season form and perfect running 
comlitions saw notable sla.shiiig of limes in 
the eenlury, 440, and 220 low hurdles for a 
close encounter. Hawley, crack Wes 
sprinter, parted the tape to clock a 10- 
aecoiul 100-yartl dash followed by Captain 
Harfst, wliile Clarke, liinh-.scoriiiK Cardi- 
nal middle distance runner, crossed the 
finish i)f I he 440 ahead of Tiffy Cook in 50.4. 
Cook and Clark met again in the 220 with 
the former flashing across the line 
ahead of his opponent to tally five points 
for the Purple in 22.4. 

Anderson Takes Both Hurdles 

Anderson, giving his intercol- 
legiate performance, clocked a 25-secon(l 
win in the 220 low hurdles, taking an early 
lead over Roxby and Captain Harfst on 
the long curve and pounding over the 
hurdles to annex a sorely-needed five 
points for the Planskymen. In the 120 
highs Anderson repeated his first victory 
to break the tape in 15.8 ahead of Roxby. 

Don Brown, sophomore lialf-niiler, and 
Buddy Chapman dominated the 880 to 
finish first and second respectively in 2:04.2 
while Chaiiinan, shifted from the two-mile 
to the mile, gained a 4;42.8 second victory 
over Grubl) to garner five more points. 
Willianis swept all three places in the jave- 
lin throw when Ham Herman and Fred 
Anderson hurled the spear 140 feel to split 
the victory ahead of George Whitney, 
w hile another division of points came when 
(Continued on Fifth Page) 

The Itall teuni had a couple of 
toiigli ones over the week-eiul and 
aciiuilled itself with honors. The 
Springliehl score 13-2 iiiighl have been 
held down to a great deal less had Caldwell 
caieil to let Kiichs liavea try on the mound, 
but as things stood a win was virtually im- 
possible and it gave Toininy Bryant his 
baplisni of lire. It would seem like 
ipiite a baplisnial, but Tom had thcni 
battled for a few innings and was 
facing about the best hitting in college 
ball. Aihl lo this the fact that .seven 
of the runs were attribiileil to a couple 
of circuit clouts and the result isn't 
so bad. Kveii the best of llieni |>ut one 
down the slot every iiinv and llieii. 

The H. C. game was much mure cheerful. 
Shanty Kiichs had the wind with him and 
his hook breaking a lull city block, with his 
siege gun keeping the Kagic ciiinplelely 
baffled. For the home tow n folks Moseley 
clubbed out hvovery niceiinesand ke|)l the 
action moving, while the team decided to 
play a little atraiglil ball and turned U|i 
with only one error, in the ninth. Of no 
small note was the field work of Salsicli ami 
.Slingerland, who patrolled the lieUI like ii 
couple of Bronx cop.s, garnered ten pul- 
oiit.s, and had the stands in a panic with 
shoestring catches and the merry old spiral 

The Purple has another tough week with 
BiLstoii U,, Trinity, and last year's Little 
Three clium|)ioii We.sleyan club. It looks 
like a large order for the pitching staff, but 
the support seems lo be improving with 
each game so the outlook is very bright.

Two days of perfect tennis weather saw 
a hard-driving Dartmouth team and a well 
balanced Vale aggregation conquer the 
Willianis netmen each by 7-2 on Friday 
and Saturday afternoons as Phipps won 
the only singles victory for the Purple in a 
forty-four game conlesi with his Big Cireen 
opponent, and Kingman, rallying from a 
defeat by Uuibord on the previous day, 
slaughtered Stevens, number one ^'ale 
player, with the loss of only two games. 

Phipiis' hard serves, brilliant sorties lo 
the net, and frequent ejaculations al 
dubbing easy shots featured the number 
three match against Dartmouth as he 
conquered Anderson, another good server, 
in three sets. Although he led twice in 
the first set, and acquired a 3-1 lead in the 
.second, Kingman found his high-bouncing 
and reliable backhand of little avail against 
the steady driving of Guibord, Dartmouth 
ace, in the number one singles, while

Drives in Two 

By Franck K. Davis '38 

Bounding back from a 13-2 whitewash- 
ing at the hands of a .slugging Springfield 
College nine on Friday, llie unprediclable 
Williams liaKehidl team pounded out a 
hard-earned 5-2 viclory over Uoslon CUil- 
lege .Saturday afteriKion on llic lalter's 
diamond, behind the Ww hit pilching of 
Waller "Slianty" Fuelis. In Friday's cn- 
coiinler, the Miirooii liatli'is fell iipiiii the 
combined olferings of Harry Stevens and 
Toinniy Hryaiit for thirteen solid blows, 
including two home runs and a triple, wliile 
three pitchers liniiled llic Purple balsnien 
to eight hits, a number which seemed very 
insigiiiricaiit on this dreary afleriioun, but 
which proved lo lie all that CNiacli Charlie 
Caldwell's men neciled in .Sal unlay 's game 
to give Big Waller his fimrlh sliuiglil win 
of the season, 

Ca|>lain Bill Moseley, Harry Stevens, 
and Phil Stearns led the leani in but ling 
over the week-end, each hilling safely 
three limes, and, allliough Willi Fuchs 
failed lo colli riliute his usuiil extra-base 
blows, he again proved In be the most val- 
uable player in the Williams line-up, coii- 
necling for a single in liulli games and then 
holding the higlily-loulcd Boslon College 
batters scoreless in all but llie Inurih 
stanza when a walk and Uvo.liingles gave 
the Fagles their only runs. Tommy 
Bryaiil who look his turn on the iiiuund 
for the first lime this year when he weiil to 
the rescue of Harry Stevens in the first 
game, .silenced llie Springfield siege guns 
for two innings but I hen in I he seveiil li and 
eighth frames llie (iymnasts found their 
range and aided by the home runs of Cella 
and Allen, both of whom have been ap- 
proached by niajur league clubs, they hal- 
tered him for eight tallies. 

Purple Scores in Early Innings 
In the Springfield game, Willianis eked 
over their two runs in the opening frames, 
siMiring one run in the lirsl on lliirry 
Stevens's drive to left field wliieh scured 
Slingerland, and then adding their last 
tally in the .second when Wall Fiiclis scam- 
pered home on Phil Stearns' liingle. l''rom 
here in I hey looked on in awe as .Archie 
Allen drove out a double, a triple and then 
a homer, Cella hit five for five, and Huston 
cavorted around the short field in big 
league style, handling six chances per- 

Taking advanlage of the six walks Teil 
Galligan allowed the Purple players in the 
Boston College encounler, Willianis got 
three runs in the fifth, otTsetling the Mc- 
Crehanmen's 2-0 lead. Passing Salsieh

Forney, presiilent of his class, and will 
work together to jirejHire a gift of upwards 
of twenty-live thousand dollars for the 
College in Iwenly-five years. 

"W'e would like to have this plan an 
annual one with each succeeding gradu- 
ating class," stated Forney, "for. although 
the amount of money coming to Williams 
at the end of the quarter-century period 
will vary according to the number of sen- 
iors who sign up, still we feel, as they do at 
Princeton, that an annual present of such 
a comparatively large sum to the College 
can only be of help in every respect." The 
first payment on the insurance jKilicy will

W. Warren Lynch "36 Praises Student Art Exhibit 

As Being Honest Artistic Attempt at Expression 

By W. Warren Lynch, '36 
Kvery year at this time we feel impelled^landscape, by Robert C. Black, III, '37, 

shows an eciual capacity for rendering solid 
stnictural forms, and contrasting varying 
depths of blues and yellows. 

Charles T. Young, III '39, has con- 
tribut<Hl a series of marines done in oil. 
I like his Sloop Skylark best, because of the 
skillful effects of atmospheric light and 
color, but his other works ajjpear rather 
lifeless and overpnintcd. In other media, 
Grant M. Thompson '38, shows an appar- 
ent ma8t<>ry of the pen-and-ink technique 
with some very excellent sketches of Euro- 
pean architecture, and .lonathan \V. 
Strong '38. in his etching of the Williams 
Chaiwl, experiments with a very difficult 
method and gels quit« an honest, effect. 

Besides the mentione<l works there are 
also a few watcrrolors. some wash draw- 
ings, and crayon effects. In some cases, of 
course, the results are a bit clumsy and in- 
exiierieneed, but the hulk of them show at 
least, an honest artistic attempt at expres- 
sion, and, for that reason, should not be 
criticised too minutely. The only fault 
with the exhibition is that such a pitifully 
small percentage of the student body is 
reprf«ente<l. One wonders if it is a lack of 
courage that restrains some of our artists 
from displaying their creations. 

to hold our heads up against the over 
powering weight of the Bennington Knl- 
'iT, and demonstrate that even conserva- 
tive old Williams can mean a little with the 
mysteries of the Applied Arts. A few 
undergraduates, working silently and 
undercover for the most part, have man- 
nged to stop their cars to the world of ideas 
long enough to record on paper or canvas 
what they see and feel. And, what 's more, 
•lie result of this articulation merits in 
many cases a much stronger and more 
critical adjective than the usual "interest- 
iir". The Student Exhibition in Law- 
rence Hall is not merely an amusing ilhim- 
ination of the undergraduate s<nil. There

'La Maternelle', French Film, Will 
Be Shown at Walden Next Week 

•|.a Malernelle", the French picture 
starring Paulette Elambert and selected as 
one of the ten best motion pictures of 
last year will be shown at the Walden 
Theater on Tuesday and Wednesday, it 
has been announced by Cal King, pro- 
prietor of the theater. 

The action takes place in a real French 
day-nursery in one of the slunnpiarters of 
Paris with actors and actresses, mostly 
between the ages of four and sever, taking 
the lead parts. The story itself deals with 
the psychological relation between an in- 
mate of the school and one of the insti- 
tution's maids. 

The dialogue titles are in English but 
the rest of the film is the original French 
fashion. Its run in Paris was for over a 
year and on Broadway it iilayed for more 
than five months. 

1937 'Gulielmensian Goes 
On Sale Today in Jesup 

80th Anniversary Edition Reveals 

New Features ; Dedicated to 

Prof. McElfresh 

Fnday, May /,5— The 1937 Gulielmen- 
sian goes on sale today in .Fesup Hall and 
will be distributed there for the next two 
weeks after luncheon, though copies will be 
available through the business manager 
until after commencement. The price of 
this year's eightieth anniversary edition, 
which is dedicated to Professor William E. 
McElfresh, will be five dollars with no 
reduced prices this year or next. 

The 1937 year book has a format remin- 
iscent of that published by the Gul eighty 
years ago. Modernizing its contents while 
making use of a ty[)e first introduced in 
185li has been the aim of its editors. 
Besides the usual elections, pictures, and 
histories are included five special articles 
on high iHiintsof administrative, fraternity, 
athletic and non-athletic extra-curricular 
activities, and the senior class history, the 
last written by Richard ,1. Murphy '36, all 
illustrateti by William B. Sprague '37. 

Barton Carter '37, business manager of 
the Clul, stated, "We expect to sell more 
(liilf! this year than ever before. It is 
different and pleasingly modernized and 
we want to show the organizations and 
social grouiwi that it is worth the tax they 
pay to it."

Combination of its <lale on this week-

contrast to the customary clas.sical pre.s- 
enlation of the Spring have brought the 
largest advance sale on recoril since the 
advent of the 1929 depression. While the

J. C. Clement Plays Lead 

.loseph C. Clement, ,Ir. '39 will hold the 
Ernest Truex starring role for the second 
time, having played it last year at Phillips 
Exeter Academy. The role was a natural 
for Truex, and is perhai)s his most famous 
characterization, but calls for a wide range 
of comic portrayal which tests the ability 
of any amateur, .\lthough the play itself 
does not call for very difficult character 
study, the models set by Truex and Ed- 
ward .\mold in the Broadway production 
make doubly difficult the tasks of Clement 
and Gordon T. Kay '3X, in the role of Jake 

Playing the leading gun-man, Arnold set 
the tempo for the play against which the 
comedy of Truex stood out in higher relief, 
and, as a result, the part calls for Kay to 
display a sinister quiet in his acting which 
has not been required of him in previous 
Cap and Bells or Little Theatre plays.

for the coming year, it was announced 
by Gordon T. Kay '38, Business Manager 
of the organization for next year, after a

While no new jMilicy to take effect next

In his three years at Williams .Jones has 
been very active in musical work, l>eing a

The editors, in a pagan frame of mind, invoke upon these mysteries 
the benevolence of the gods of the roads, the gods of the weather, and 
those two old standhys, Aphrodite and Dionysus. This we do first of 
all for the sake of the Four Hundred Ciuests, next, for the Four Hundred 
Hosts, and finally, in somewhat gruilging fashion, for the Four Hundred 
Wolves. May the pleasures of realization prove superior to the pleasures 
of anticipation! 

With the triple-threat subtleties of wine, women, and song, civili- 
zation is brought once more to the Berkshires. Park Avetuie comes to 
Spring Street. For a day or two at least language will be purer, costumes 
less primitive, and chapel will have an element of the dramatic. Vor all 
this we who have the interests of our college at heart caimot but be grate- 
ful. Then too, commonplace scenes will — but here' they are, and this is

Gilbert Gabriel '12 and Milton Levine '32 

In Criticizing College Life as Enjoyable Vacuum 

In soutulinq out firaitiiuent (iluitini tm the nubject oj tvhiit they ditl ntid itiil not get out of 
WillidniK, a Rkcoud reporter obtained llie following .ilateinent/i from Gilbert (Inbriel '1^, 
ilroniii critic on the Neie York American, and Milton Levine '32, assistant to Jed Harris, 
leell-known Broadway producer.) 
"I'm not sorry I went to Williams— it* "When 1 wiis in colleRe, there used to lie 

11 fetish for our httle world within our 
Purple hills. We never read a newspajier 
until senior yenr, luid we even took a 
certain snohhish i)leusurc in our disregard 
for polities. But now, I am sure, that is 
all very different; there's a radical change 
in Williams since my time, and its all in the 
student attitude." 

So did Ciilhert Gabriel '12, noted play 
reviewer for the New York Americati 
deserihe his impressions of what now 
seemed to him the weakness of Williams. 
As he spoke he occasionally removed one 
foot from its indelicate position on his 
modernistic desk to light a match for the 
enormous i)ii)e he supported with both 

"You know you can't keep politics out 
of drama. There are always plays 
coming up that deal with it in .some sha])e 
or manner. I've got to write about it; 
I've got to recognize it. I,uckily Mr. 
Hearst doesn't care what I say, he just 
pays me, and I write what I want to. 
But the point is that I'm continually hav- 
ing to face it, and Williams certainly 
didn't help me there. 

"I enjoyed Williams, and had a damn 
good time there for four years, but when 
I got down here in New York I had to wake 
up and look around and find out what was 
happening. In my field of the tbeatrp 
you've got to be aware of the world, he- 
cause if drama, or any art, is to be alive, 
it has to concern itself with the mess of 
affairs that's going on all the time." 

Mr. Gabriel paced up and down his 
luxurious study, the way jjrominent men 
are supposed to do while being inter- 
viewed. "Y'know, we were really a very 
stupid bunch of kids then. We didn't 
give a damn about what was going on 
outside of Williamstown. I don't think it 
ever occurred to us that we would ever 
have anything to do with that world. 
You kids now are a lot smarter than we 
were — you know a lot more of what goes 
on, and you seem to be concerned with it a 
little, which is something we never were." 

was a very enjoyable vacuum." Thus did 
Milton Levine '32, assistant to Producer 
Jed Harris danui with very faint praise 
indeed his life at Williams. 

"I had a darn good time and developed a 
beautiful sense of unreality which it has 
taken me some time to unlearn since I've 
entered the world of the theatre. 

"1 was consideratily dazed when I came 
into a worUI of facts after being nurtured 
in the lil)eral attitude of Williams, which 
is, in actual fact, a smugness that is back- 
ward and gives its students no perspective. 
To answer your question, no one in par- 
ticular is to blame — it is merely a reflection 
on the well-to-do middle class life in 

Such a statement from a graduate of as 
recent a vintage as 1932 was in the way of a 
contradiction of Gat)riers remark that the 
Williams attitude had taken a great 
change for the better since 1912. "The 
air of detachment from the world appalled 
me," Mr. liCvine continued. "There was 
no interest in affairs of the world, no spirit 
of interest in the matters which \. ere so 
soon to become our own. Students were 
inclined to be indolent and apathetic to- 
wards anything which might disturb the 
pleasant air of vagueness which pervaded 

When asked how to remedy this situa- 
tion, the speaker was a little more at a loss 
for words. He agreed that it could not 
come entirely from the curriculum, but 
said that the administration should do 
everything to foster an interest in the out- 
side. "But in the last anal.yBis, this vital 
urge must come from the student attitude; 
interest in political science must be carried 
on outside of the classroom, and on the ini- 
tiative of the undergraduates. Williams 
men should droj) their haughty scorn for 
joining organized student protests, and 
should evince a more positive interest in 
the world in general if they are really to get 
something out of college ot^er than just a 
good time. 

"As far as anyone planning to go into 
the theatre from any angle whatsoever, he 
must develop a better and clearer knowl- 
edge of the outside world than I ever got 
out of college."

Houseparty 'Sketch' As Being 'Perfectly Williams' 

By Dr. Hallett D. Smith 
We lone Ihe gruesome and feel mt the ■•ilorm,*liTw\i\\ny hides under a rather precious 

Are miliUy liberal ami the man i« dead. 

The concluding lines from Editor 
Wolfe's poem in the current Sketch might 
be used as a critical commentary on the 
contents of this fir-it munber of Volume X. 
The mild liberalism appears in the editorial 
columns; the editors want more "not (piite 
innocuous" (piestions and issues u|)on 
which there can he "the more harmless and 
pnjoynlile tyi)ps of controversy". How 
perfectly Williams! .\i the moment dis- 
cilHRion is devoted to the German exchange 
stiuient question, which may be innocuous 
hut seems to this reviewer neither harmless 
nor enjoyable. 

The referred to in the 
editor's lines characterizes three of the 
short stories, by Messrs. Lynch, Benedict 
and Hnickway. I.ynch's story has atmos- 
pherp, emotion, the right touch, and an 
idea. Benedict gives us a sex murtler, 
with horrors, which compels the reader's 
attention hy directness of stAtement. 

title the curious story of the suicide of a 
man who couldn't stop joking. 

In a lighter vein are "Youth in Danger", 
hy K. W. Foerater, an ironic description of 
the terrible effect of Nazi "instruction 
courses" on German youth, and "Little 
Flowers of the Grippe" hy a clever .young 
man who writes under the pseudonym of 
Peter Quince. The latter piece is as 
amusing as anything to api)ear in Sketch 
for some time. It includes "Springtime of 
a Surrealist", which is just that, and two 
poems which are thoroughly delightful, es- 
pecially the one in which T. S. Eliot writes 
on a theme hy Professor Newlmll. 

"The I,>inchpon," a story hy Marston, 
proves that a girl may have jitters when 
eating at a frat<>mity house for the first 
time. I wouldn't have suspected it, and 
neither would the Ixiys in the story, but

Omen Friday, .May to 'I'lie lirsl house 
parly arrival Mlep|K<d daintily up 
the Zcta Psi walk a week ago tcHlay, and 
since then they've been slowly closing in; 
with Bciuiiiigton, Smith and Vas.sar as 
usually well represented, a strong supplc- 
mentary group of the perennially hovering 
New York po8t-<lebs, a smattering of 
mid-westerners, and one girl from Paris. 
One of the mid-westerners, a KanHaM(/ity 
girl, had lusr local admirer drive all the way 
to Rochester for her. 

The handwriting on the Western I'nion 
wall was in capital letters. We found 
Ben Chase, chief o|«!ralor, glued to the 
teletype, but pursuaded him to find time 
for a few connnents. 'l"he number of wires 
this year, he said, is rumiiiig a little over 
last year's figure; the first four days of this 
week have already totalled about an even 
thousiuid. We thought this was reallv 
something —until he meiUioned Com- 
mencement. The Graduation Day tele- 
grams alone, usuidly top four hundred. 

Ben wouldn't tell us much alxiut just 
what the most amusing wires lately said. 
Queried as to the refu-sals, though, he 
smiled, "excuses have been running about 
as usual". We wondered if ntany girls 
had changed their minds at the last 
minute. "Not a cancellation," he beamed. 

From other sources, though, we heard 
of the plight of one jimior— the same one 
who wired Ida I.upino in vain for House- 
parties a few weeks ago with no reply. 
He met one Waterloo after another, and 
Hnally, on Tuesday, got a little mad and 
sent six wires, all jjleading for a date. 
The result: five refusals and one accept- 
ance! A little of his elation disappeared, 
though, when he read one of his linal re- 
jection sli])8. It was a little tix) discour- 
aging and urmiannerly to have been sent 
from Park Avenue, but it was. 1 DON'T 
OF YOU was all it said. He was last .seen 
heading for the Braehead. 

Houseparties are old stulT to Ben and 
Herb Belliveau, his assistant. Ben has 
been with Western Union here since lil2S, 
and Herb has worked there for six years. 
He takes it all very philosophically. Even 
the news that the Kenmore floor show was 
being imported all the wa.v from Albany 
for a 2.(X) a. m. special ])erformance at the 
Deke House tonight didn't phase him in 
the least. We lef^ him slipping his ear- 
])lK)nes back on, resigiied to It All, as we 
walked across the street to Hart's to buy 
a seat for Whistling in the Dark. At least 
he'll feel the same Monday, we thouglit, 
which is more than we can say for most 
of us. 

Flickers These Three opens Cal King's 
Houseparty movie bill at the 
Walden. It's Lillian Hellman's own adap- 
tion of her Children's Hour, which should 
have garnered the Pulitzer Prize for Broad- 
way last year instead of The (Hd Maid, 
Zoe .\tkins' rehashed Wharton. The 
Lesbian motif has been carefully avoided, 
with no in the dramatic power. The 
ending is .slightly happier than the play, 
Miriam Hopkins, Merle Oheron, luul even 
Joel MacCrea are excellent in the featured 
roles. Saturday sees the third Walt 
Disney attack of the season, with Cid 
bringing back four Mickey Mouses (or is it 
Micky Mice?) and a Silly Symphony for 
Houseparty intelligentsia.

Through the facilities of the Williams 
Outing Club two outdoor swimming pools 
have been made accessible for Spring and 
.Summer use. The lirst mid larger of tlie 
two is situated on the Hopkins ICstate 
near the Vermont stale line; while a second, 
smaller but more iiifoniial since not even 
the formality of truiilis is reipiired, is con- 
veniently situated near llie li(Tlin Cabin 
on the side of Berlin Moinitain. 

The pool on the llo|ikiiis Estate was 
given by the College to the Clovernnient, 
hut all hough it is therefore supiiosedly 
under Federal control, it is the W. (>. C. 
that has been maiiitaiiiiiig it. The (Jutiiig 
Club's most recent reconstruction job w as 
executed at the Berlin pool, however; and 
since the trail leading to the top of Berlin 
Mountain has also been recently cleared 
by this organization, reaching the pool is 
no longer a problem. 

Lunch on Greylock Today 

The first oiijiortunity to S(!e liow favor- 
ably the student body will react to the fa- 
cilities for swimming given them, will be 
offered by the Outing Club today, when a 
lunclieon is being planned for any who 
care to attend at the Harris Memorial 
Cabin on the side of Mount Greylock. if 
sufficient interest is shown in these all-day 
affairs, others will follow throughout the 
.Spring and early Fall. 

In the meantime, arrangements have 
been made to send a Williams delegation 
today to the Intercollegiate Outing Club 
Association Conference to be held at East 
Hebron, Xew Hampshire, on Lake New- 
found. S. Bradley .\dams '37 will be in 
charge of the group which has not as yet

English, Geology, and Physics Departments Enjoy 

Increased Popularity, Recent Registration Shows 

The trchnioalitii's of rcKislrution were 
overcome l>y all the menihers of the thri« 
lower elaHses. iiichuliiiK the twenly-Bix un- 
fortunate in(hvi<luals who were forced to 
pay a five dolhir fine for not haviiiK com- 
pleted their course selection on time leav- 
ing a muss of statistics ami numbers which 
tend to show the path down which the 
Williams student is travelling. Perhaps 
the most astonishing change in class pref- 
erences is seen in the Geology department 
whose 1-2 course was opened to freshmen 
this year for the first time. 20G students 
signed up for this elementary course and as 
only 108 could lie handled, eighty-five of 
the lis Freshmen who signed uj) for the 
course were shift eil to various other second 
choice suhjecls. 

The English Literature major likewise 
underwent a new flood of popularity as 
fifty-three sophomores expressed a desire 
to major in it which shows an increase of 
twenty-two over the present junior's 
choice of last year. A contrary change in 
figures was registered in the Mathematics 
department where only five sophomores 
signed up to major whereas last year's 
class had ten. 

Another great rise in enrollment was 
registeretl in the Physics department where 
seven times the number of students who 
majored in this department last year sig- 
nified a desire to this year and thus swelled 
the number from one to seven. 

English Literature still remains at the 
top of the popularity ladder but this year 
its position was threatened by the Philoso- 
phy department. One hundred and sixty- 
two men signed uj) for the Philosophy 
1-2 course which was only forty-eight less 
than tile numl>er who signed up for 
English 1-2.

Russia Not Communist, 
Hicks Tells Liberal Club 

Noted 'Red' Defends Labor Violence 

In His Lecture on 'What Is 

Communism? ' 

"TlieSt)viet I'liiuii i8 merely u traiisitiDii 
8tiiKe ill tlieHcliievemeiit of the Coiiiinuiiiut 
ideal cif it elawjleiw Hociety," Cimiiville 
Hieks, luitetl Aiiiericuii CoinriiuiiiHt iiiul ii 
recent reeipieiit of ii Ciui^eiiheiiu fellow- 
Nhip, deelured in his tulk on "WImt Is 
Coniinutiisin" tlelivered before a closed 
meeting of the Liberal Club in Je8up Audi- 
torium Wednesday eveniein. 

"What exists in Russia today is not 
Communism," the well-known author and 
lecturer continued. "Russia has the dicta- 
torship of the proletariat and is forming a 
state socialism which will eventually lead 
to the classless society." After a discus- 
sion of the Soviet reKime in which he de- 
clared that "there is in Russia a greater 
decree of Democracy than in any other 
country", Mr. Hicks turnetl to the activi- 
ties of the Communist party in this coun- 

Notes Growth of Communists 

"There certainly is no possibility of im- 
portinK Communism into this country nor 
can it be brought by Moscow gold," the 
speaker assured his audience. "Rjither 
must it come from those who are already 
here," he continued. "The Communist 
party in the United States hud a difficult 
time during the first few years of its exist- 
ence during Coolidge prosperity. With 
the coming of the depression, however, 
there has been a marked growth in the 
Communist party and an even greater 
growth in its influence despite the fact that 
it numbers only about 40,000 members in 
this country. 

"So long as the Capitalists continue to 
use violence, it seems ridiculous to say that 
the working classes cannot use it," Mr. 
Hicks declared while i)resenting the pro- 
gram of the American Communist Party 
which includes unification of all the forces 
in America opposing Fascism and 
Capitalism and supports the formation 
of a Farmer-Labor Party. "The 
Capitalist system doesn't hesitate to use 
violence. It constantly employs violence 
against labor in strikes in the form of strike 
breakers, militia, and police," the mild- 
mannered, meek-looking Red asserted. 
"The Communists naturally want to bring 
about the revolution as peacefully as pos- 
sible," he hastened to add. 

Differentiates Socialists, Communists 
In his discussion of Russia and Com- 
munist organization during which he fre- 
quently referred to Soviet Communism by 
Sidney and Beatrice Webb, the speaker 
said that Soviet leaders were far too con- 
cerned with their own affairs to foment 
active revolt in other countries. He further 
stated that the triple pyramid of Russian 
rule, through the Soviets, the trade unions, 
and the cooperatives, gave to the masses of 
the people an active voice in the govern- 
ment, thus arousing in them an interest in 
their rule. 

The chief difference between modern 
Socialists and modern Communists lies in 
the fact that Communists rely only upon 
violent revolt to overthrow Capitalism 
while the Socialists are somewhat more 
moderate in their methods, Mr. Hicks de- 
clared in the historical sketch of Commun- 
ism since the days of Marx which he gave 

at the beginning of his talk. While 
Marx used the words Socialist and Com- 
munist indiscriminately, U'liin was the 
leader of the schism between the Socialists 
and the Coumiunists winch took place just 
before the Worhl War "Marxism has 
been disproved on the imrage of t»ic« a 
week ever sine* the morning ('ayildl was 
published, and yet it still persists with ex- 
traordinary vigor," Mr. Hicks quipped in 
one of his few displays of humor.

'Cap and Bells' Production 
Plays for Large Audience 

'Whistling in the Dark' Commended 

By Dr. Roberts Who Scores 

Cast's Diction 

By Dr. John H. Roberts 

Perhaps the trend awiiy from the classics 
to modern plays is after all not a mistake. 
Farce-melodramas like Whiatling in llie 
Dark draw large audiences; they suit the 
houseparty mood; they demand not too 
niueh skill in the acting. And if iimny of 
the lines are only vaguely audible to 
anyone behind row G, the loss is not im- 

The chief difficulty Friday night was 
vocal. After years of sitting patiently in 
Chupin Hall listening to muffled tones 
from the stage, 1 should no doubt submit 
bv now to the poor diction of our ama- 
teurs and expect no more. But stubborn- 
l.v I still hope to catch the words. 1 think 
the trouble lies in the fact (aside from the 
atrocious acoustics of the building) that 
the inexperienced director after two re- 
hearsals knows the lines so well himself 
that he docs not realize he is not hearing 
what his actors say. It is not so much a 
matter of lone volunu^ as of indistinct jiro- 
nunciation and of pitch. A thin, high 
voice slurring through a mass of words kill 
a speech as surely as cyanide killed 
Slim. To many in the audience Friday 
night I am afraid the play was mostly 

Dramatic Suspense Notable 

In olher respects the directing was com- 
mendahle. The two big scenes (Wally's 
murder demonstration and the radio- 
telephone episode) were successfully built 
up. By careful timing and hy grouiiing 
his actors elTcctively on the stage, Mr. 
Sprague secured the dramatic suspense es- 
sential to the story. The chief gangster's 
blasiihenious concern when he heard the 
voice over the radio, broke the .sjiell al 
exactly the right moment; Wally's last line 
and his brought the curtain down 
with a professional finalitv- 

The play is not rich in character. It 
was a thankless task the Bennington 
wcimen had on their hands: one r(de with- 
out anv liiu's, and the other without any

Ragged field play by the Purple 
team allowed a rather consistent Tufts ten 
to steal a 0-5 victory over the Williams 
stickmen in the hrst overtime period of 
their game here on Cole Field, Friday 

Dis|daying none of the punch or accur- 
acv with which tlicv had almost overcome 
an undefeated New Hamp.shire eluh the 
week before, the Purple ten were consistent 
in their iiuMinsistency, both on defense and 
offense. Erratic passes, loose guarding, 
and slower running kejit the Purple attack 
from functioning very effectively, with the 
result that the Williams ten was iilaying 
mostly a defensive game. 

Harri.s, ,lunilio second attack, scored 
first at 7;4.5of the lirst period, and Bracken, 
left-handed Tufts offensenian, netted an- 
otbergoalat 14:00. The Purple could not

when Tommy (?reen netted a short one at 
7:13. Al .Siratlon and Welles Oslrander

Two Hits in Four Innings 

At Middletown 

By Franck K. Davis '38 

Behind the fast ball pitching of the vet- 
eran Harry Stevens and the tieceptive 
right-handed slants of Walt "Shanty" 
Pucbs, the Varsity baseball team scored 
their sixth and seventh victories of the 
season over the week-end by sluitting out 
Trinity on Fridav .5-1), and then sub- 
duing Wesleyan at Middletown the next 
afternoon 8-3. In Friday's encounter 
Marry .Stevens bested Captain Ray Pattoii 
of the Hilltoppers in a gruelling pitchiiif; 
duel which .s:i\v each hurler retire eight 
opponents via the strikeout riiute, but the 
Purjile moundinan scattered the six hits 
which he allowed sufiiciently evenly to 
blank his opponents while his teammates 
bunehed eight blows for their five run 
margin of victorv off Patton. 

Captain Bill Moseley again headed the 
hatting column for the wcek-t'iid jaunt, by 
hitting four for eight including a double, a 
triple, and a home run, while Harry Stev- 
ens connected for the same niimher of 
blows in nine trips to the plate. Hank 
.Stanton likewise contributed his share to 
the two victories by handling eleven 
chances afield with but one error and his 
throwing arm which had appeared to be 
weak in comparison to its last year's 
potency in the earlier games of the ."eaiion, 
seemedtorecdverilsold w hip and accura<?y'. 
Moseley Steals Home 

Pitching his best ball of the season 
against Trinity, Stevens bad the opposing 
ball ers entirely at bis mercy and in the two 
innings in which he allowed them to hunch 
a jiair of bingles, be bore down to make I he 
next batter ground ea.sily to the infield for 
the third out of the stanza. Hay I'atton 
who pitched his team to a hard earned 
victory over Charlie Caldwell's men last 
year, held the Piirjilc batsmen scoreless 
through the three inning.s, but in the, 
fourth his .support weakened and when 
Eddie Morris dropped a high fly from 
Walt Fuchs' hat after it had been liKiwn 
about by the baffling wind. Bill Moseley

As the time iicars for the Kcpuhlicaii coiivciitidii at ("li'vclaiid ami 
the ultimate selection of u candidate to curry the standard of "" 
against Kooseveit, three factors have become increasingly apparent. 
First is the certainty, barring a political upheaval in the sumiiu'i- of gi- 
gantic pro|)ortioiis, of the President's re-election. 'I'he otlieis are the 
popular favor held by (lovernor Landon and the evident control of the 
convent ion by the Hoover-Milles group, the California and Ohio primaries, 
the delegations from the south, and the stand taken by New York and 
Connecticut Republican^ bearing witness to this. 

Although the anti-Hoo.sevelt tide has risen since 1934, it nmst be re- 
membered that at that time the Democrats were sufficiently strong to in- 
crease their hold over Congress, a political achievement that has been 
rarely accomplished. It would seem that who forsook the Re- 
publican party to vote for Roosevelt in 1932 are staying on the Demo- 
cratic side and the majority of the new voters are also favorable to that 
party. Evidence of the latter can be gained from analj'sis of the polls of 
the National Institute of Public Opijiion, a relatively reliable index. 

Thus whether the Republican objective in 1936 is to wage an active 
fight or merely lay the groundwork for the 1940 campaign, it seems evi- 
dent that some ajipcal be made to the young or independent voter. 
The recent convention of the New York Young Republican group is 
syintomatic of the desire of .some to shake the "Olil Guard" control; 
the support of Borah's race is another. 

In the selection of a nominee and a platform the Republican party 
will have an opportunity to show the trend that it will take during the 
next four years. Hope for any fundamental resurrection of the G.O.P. 
lies in an appeal through platform and nominee to young, new voters in 
order to convince this class that the Republicans can offer something 
which wilf induce them to shift from supporting the Democratic ticket. 
To dale little has been accomplished along those lines. What the future 
holds for the Republicans lies not in the hands of God but in the hands of 
the controlling element of the partj'. It is up to them whether they wish 
to run a party that will hold the same position which the Democrats 
have held since the Civil War, one that is not too enviable.

from ()l>servati(in, seemed to take tlie blow 
pretty well and were fully recovered hy 

We ran into tlie ratlier paradoxical evi- 
dence tliat tliere was both more atlikiics 
than last year and more drinking. Down 
at Hart's, ,Ioe (lleason admitted that more 
l)ick-up8 and liromos had been in deniaiul 
than last season, for example, and the 
Uraeliead reported a stansfrini; business 
(hm). The ])ick-ups, incidentally, were 
more popular than the bromos, in case any- 
one i.s interested. 

The athletics, mostly in tlie form of beer 
picnics with associated baseball names, 
were helped aloiij; a lol by the weather, 
which was a respectable contrast to the 
1935 mid-March thermometer. Ilerm 
Peck, who inaugurated the local cliai)terof 
the "Feathered Friends" benefactors, ca|v 
tained the first large invasion into local 
fields on Saturday. The initial chapter ot 
this interesting association, we heard, was 
a Deke brain child at Amherst. 

Maybe the enthusiasm for the ball 
games, tennis matches, el al came partially 
after .seeing the official campus perform- 
mances. Tony Plansky's miracle men 
mi8,sed a Little Three title by one scant 
javelin throw, for example. Then the 
personable, dark-haired Carolyn Habcock, 
whois sailing on IheS.S. Manhatljin for the 
Wightniiin Cui) Matches this Wediie.sdiiy, 
divided sets with .M .larvis Saturday after- 
noon to give a Ilou.sei)arly crowd a view of 
some of the best tennis .seen this 8ea,son. 
There was a doubles match, loo; Mrs. 
Ijiwrence Phipps, mother of Captain 
Gerry Phipps of the Willianis outfit, paired 
with .larvis to nose out the twenty-one 
year old coast .'tar and Dick Slark, former 
Cornell player.
