1656 frosh enter Penn as Class of 71 A total of 1656 freshmen will enter the University in September. More than one third of these — over 600 — will receive some form of financial aid. The members of the Class of 1971, selected from 7706 applicants, number 24 less than the freshman class last year. "It's the end of the post-war baby boom," commented Dean of Admissions William G. Owen. About one third of the students are from Pennsylvania: 201 are from Philadelphia, 223 from the Philadelphia suburbs, and 151 from other areas of the Commonwealth. EARLY DECISION Two hundred sixty-one of the applicants were accepted last December under the University's early decision plan. Of the 1656 freshmen, 734 men will enter the College of Arts and Sciences, 417 women will enter the College of Liberal Arts for Women, 323 — mostly men — v ill enter the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce, and 127 — almost all male — will enter the University's four engineering schools.

The end of the baby boom
Orientation program set for new students
PHW Men Women

Pilot advising plan scheduled By TOM KNOX The residents of four freshmen dormitories have been selected to participate in a pilot counselling program, the director of the program announced this week. Dr. Roger Walmsley, director of the General Honors Program, associate professor of physics, and innovater of the pilot plan, said the plan was needed because the current system is "not terribly satisfactory." Under the pilot plan, all the residents of a dorm will be assigned the same academic advisors. This is a switch from the previous method, that usually saw as many different advisers as students per dorm. The major advantage of the
plan, Walmsley said, is that dorm counselors and advisors will get to know each other and will be able to work together more easily. Walmsley described the faculty role this way. "He can offer, as a more mature person in academia, help for a student in deciding what curriculum he can put together to meet educational and vocational goals. He can provide a unique and subtle insight." "He can also be an older friend." "Is he a parent substitute? This is not something we should point toward but only resort to. This is generally not needed; most students have emerged from adolescence. They are young adults." If successful, the program
might be implemented on a classwide basis for the Class of 1972. CONTROLLED EXPERIMENT The experiment — which as yet has no name — will have several controls. Of the four dorms, two will have only College students as residents, and the other two will be half Wharton and engineering students and half College students. The all-College units will have two advisors. And of the four dorms, two will have counselors who are Pennsylvania graduates, and two counselors will be non-alumni. In the spring of 1968, Walmsley, in consultation with the students, the dorm counselors, and Continued on Page 22
A revamped New Student Week will introduce members of the Class of 1971 to the University, starting on Labor Day, September 4. Seven days of receptions, dinners, tours, lectures, meetings, symposia, picnics, shows, movies, concerts, examinations, exercises, and mixers have been planned to integrate freshman into University life. Freshman camp, a much-maligned segment of past New Student Week programs, has been dropped this year, and the already frenetic pace of the first week of school has been stepped up to fill the void. New Student Week begins at 8 A.M. on Labor Day, when University residences are opened and freshmen move in. During the day, the Kite and Key Society, an upperclass service group, will lead tours around campus. MEET THE DEANS That afternoon, freshmen and their parents can meet Acting Dean of Men Gerald Robinson and Dean of Women Alice Emerson at an informal reception in Annenberg Plaza. From 5 to 7 P.M., freshmen will get their first taste of dormitory food as women have dinner in Hill Hall and men dine in the Freshman Commons of Houston Hall. The traditions of Pennsylvania's 228-year history will be expained to frosh at Tradition Night, scheduled for 7:30 in Irvine Auditorium. Later Monday evening, freshmen will meet with dormitory counselors and fellow dorm residents at a 10 P.M. meeting in the dorm counselors' rooms. Bleary-eyed frosh women will be treated to a fashion show with their Hill Hall breakfast Tuesday morning, as dormitory counselors model the latest in college fashions from 8:15 to 8:45 A.M. Men, who are not provided breakfast under their dorm contracts, will have to begin their year of fending for themselves. From 9 to 10 A.M., the deans and directors of the University's undergraduate schools and colleges will meet the members of
the Class of 1971, and from 10 A.M. to noon, meetings with undergraduate advisors have been arranged. WOMEN'S COFFEE HOUR Also from 10 until noon, women can learn about Pennsylvania's various women's clubs at a Bennett Union coffee hour, to be held in Bennett Hall. At noon, freshmen women will meet their orientation leaders for lunch. Orientation leaders are undergraduate women who completed an extensive heeling (training) program and were specially selected for New Student Week. From 11 to 12 Tuesday and also from 1:30 to 5 P.M. on Thursday, additional tours of the campus for freshmen will be conducted. From 1 to 4:30 P.M., another innovation in the New Student Week program will be presented. A New Student Symposium, called "The College Experience," will offer three discussions of issues of interest to students. "CULTURE AND CREDITS" The first, which runs from 1 to 2 P.M. in Irvine Auditorium, is called "Culture and Credits." Panel members for this symposium are Dr. Nancy Leach, vicedean of the College for Women and a lecturer in English; Dr. Robert Lucid, assistant professor of English; Dr. Alfred J. Reiber, professor of history; and Dr. Paul Green, associate professor of botany. A second facet of the symposium is called "Faculty Diversity" and features small discussion groups with members of the facultyThe Faculty Diversity discussions replace required seminars for freshmen. The seminars, which received a great amount of criticism in the past, generally required that frosh read three or four books over the summer and then attend a usually boring seminar. The third segment of the symposium, entitled "Student Commitment" features a student panel moderated by University Chaplain, Rev. Stanley Johnson. The members of the panel, chosen by Rev. Johnson, are James Rosenberg, speaker of the University of Pennsylvania Student Government (UPSG); Trish Tunstall, a coed Continued on Page 3

Spice Rack sit-in: The year that 'Berkeley' came to Penn This was the year that Berkeley came to Pennsylvania.

This year even started differently from other years. When students came back to Philadel-

phia in September, they found Pennsylvania making national headlines after President Hamwell's announcement that the Institute for Cooperative Research, which had been conducting chemical-biological warfare research projects, would be abolished. While most newspapers took this to mean that the projects would be dropped and the University would accept no more classified contracts, actually Spice Rack and Summit stayed on at Pennsylvania. SOURCE OF CONTROVERSY These two projects were the major source of controversy on campus all year until, in the face of mounting criticism and protest, they were finally dropped last May.

Learning at 'the libe'
Charles Patterson Van Pelt Library is much more than a library to many students: It's a way of life. Many students take their dates to "the libe," and many of these students even met their dates there. The Rosengarten Library on the ground floor is a favorite placa to meet members of the opposite sex, and this has led some wags to make comments about the "mixer" held on Friday nights and keg of beer on Saturdays.
Orientation for freshmen Cpntinued from Page 1 who precipitated a controversy when she and several other women attempted to heel the all-male cheerleading souad; Sue Hhdebrand, a CW junior active in several service organizations; and Dan Sipes, a sophomore. FRESHMAN PICNIC At 6 P.M., new students will gather in the Big Quad of the men's dormitories for a picnic. Later, at 7:30, UPSG will sponsor a freshman class meeting and at 8:30, the Men's Residence Board will hold an outdoor party for new students in the Quad. At the Catacombs, "The Red Balloon" will be shown at 9:30 and 11 P.M. On Wednesday, social activities will ease off as freshmen attend ? pre-medical pre-veterinary. and pre-dentistry advising session set for 9 A.M. Wharton freshmen will take an accounting aptitude exam and SAMP, nursing, and engineering frosh will take a reading test from 9 to 10:30. Advising for transfer students has been set for 9 A.M. to noon. Popular Dean of Women Mrs. Emerson will meet the coeds of the Class of 1971 at 10:45 in the University Museum Auditorium. OPENING EXERCISES Freshmen will be officially welcomed to the University at Formal Opening Exercises scheduled for noon in Irvine Auditorium. Speaker at the convocation will be Dr. James L. Ross, chairman and associate professor of philosophy. Starting at 1:30, freshmen will form seemingly interminable lines outside the Palestra as registration for freshman begins. Registration should take no longer than ten minutes if students follow instructions, pay their bills in advance, and arrive at the Palestra at the proper time. They usually do, but registration is scheduled to finish at 5 P.M. anyway. Vice-provost and professor of law Dr. A. Leo Levin will talk to undergraduate women at a Hill Hall dinner set for 6 P.M. At 7 P.M., freshman men will meet again with their dorm counselors. Later Wednesday evening, several recreational events have been planned. The widely-acclaimed Underground, a student written, directed, and performed satirical revue will strut the boards at the Catacombs, the Christian Associations far-out coffee house. The revue, which will be preceded by a performance by topical songwriter Bill Fredericks, kicks off at 9 P.M. The performance will be repeated Thursday night. Houston Hall Board will start its fall film series with an 8 P.M. presentation of "The Bridge on the River Kwai" in Irvine. Also Wednesday night, "The
Committee," a non-alcoholic nightclub in Houston Hall coffeeshop, will open for business, and the Office of International Services' International Folk Dance will start at 8:30 in Houston Hall Plaza. CLASSES START Freshmen—as well as the rest of the University—get down to business Thursday morning as classes begin. Transfer students, however, will get a brief reprieve as they register from 9 A.M. until noon. From 10:30 until 11:30 Thursday morning, freshmen can drink free coffee and get plenty of conversation if they attend the Publications Coffee Hour, sponsored by Introduction to Pennsylvania. Representatives of all undergraduate publications, including The Daily Pennsylvanian, will be available to talk to freshmen about the heeling programs of the various organizations. At 4 that afternoon, another innovation in the New Student Week calendar gets its start as freshmen and sophomores meet on the field of battle (Hill Hai. field) for a touch football game. The game, explained Assistant Dean of Men William Boggs, is "an attempt to build up class spirit and to teach new students Penn songs and cheers. We'll have cheer leaders and a band, a real game, and plenty of spirit." From 5:30 to 8 that evening the University's three religious centers ( the Christian Association, the Hillel Foundation, and the Newman Club) will open their doors to students for meetings, entertainment, religious services, and refreshments. Commuters in the freshmen class will meet at 8 P.M. in Annenberg Auditorium, while a Houston Hall mixer gets underway in back of Houston Hall. ANOTHER DAY Friday will be just another day of classes, with only a few special activities scheduled for frosh. The Daily Pennsylvanian will begin its 1967-68 publishing season when its first issue of the school year hits the stands at 9 A.M. Freshmen—along with other undergraduates—can pick up the free newspaper at any of ten distribution points around campus, including Hill, Deitrich, Houston, College, Logan, and Bennett Halls.
Papers are also available in the Annenberg Graduate School of Education, and Sergeant Hall. Acting Dean of Men Gerald Robinson will address freshmen at a 4 P.M. conclave in Irvine. The first weekend at Pennsylvania for new students will get underway at 7:30 as the various
performing arts groups at the University "do their stuff" at Performing Arts Night, set for 7:30 P.M. in Irvine. From 9 to 11:30 P.M., freshmen can shing-a-ling with the rest of
the undergraduates at a Dormitory Parliament-sponsored mixer in Hill Hall. EARLY TO RISE Freshmen will have to heed at least the second half of University Founder Ben Franklin's adage "Early to bed and early to rise" Satuiday morning as they struggle to reading exams that start at 9 A.M. Lucky Wharton, College, and CW students whose names begin with letters in the end of the alphabet will get a chance to s.eep a little later, however: Their exams don't start until after lunch. The pools in Hutchinson Gymnasium (for men) and in Weightman Hall (for women) will be open for swimming from 2 until 5 P.M. Later that evening, a special "Night in Philadelphia," designed to acquaint freshmen with the cultural attractions of the nation's fourth largest city, will get underway. Freshmen will be transported by bus downtown to a yet undetermined cultural event. Sunday will be a day of rest for most students, but optional -activities include free bus tours of the city, a discussion of religious life at the University called "Hello Penn! Good-by God?" at the Christian Association, meetings for women in their various residences, and another set of frosh-counselor meetings in the men's dorms.
Class of 1971
Continued from Page 1 In addition, 20 women will enter the School of Nursing, and 35 others will begin work at the School of Allied Medical Professions. The figures for the Class of 1970 were College, 748; CW, 417; Wharton, 337; Engineering 135; Nursing, 21; SAMP, 27. A total of 1686 students out of the 7706 applicants were admitted
to the Class of 70. Financial aid to the freshman class year will amount to a record $2,503,000, according to Douglas R. Dickson, director of student financial aid. This year's
total breaks last year's record by $200,000. "At Pennsylvania again this .year no freshman considered in financial need under the standards of the College Scholarship Service was denied aid," he said. Of the total amount, scholarship aid is valued at $1,817,000, loans at $335,000, and part-time employment at $278,000. An additional $73,000 will be given in the form of options between loans and employment.

Limping toward a 'New Pennsylvania'
Penn's slow (and sometimes unsure) Development Plan By STEPHEN MARMON The most important building on campus is one that hasn't been built and probably never will be constructed. It is the first unit of the University's House Plan, and the missing bricks and mortar reveal much of what has happened to Pennsylvania's $93 million Development Plan. Three years ago this fall the Board of Trustees started a drive to raise funds to erect more than 20 new buildings, renovate many old ones, and greatly increase the University's endowed professorships and scholarships. A major part of the plan was the $17.5 million earmarked for the House Plan. COPYING HARVARD The House Plan, was to have been modeled after the systems at Harvard and Yale. In their houses about 250 students live, eat, and study, along with a senior faculty member (the Master) and about ten junior faculty members.
Houses were designed to increase contact between student and teachers, and to bring the undergraduates and the faculty into closer relationships, an atmosphere which many have said the University lacks. But the House Plan will not be built. Not unless a miracle happens. Of the ten million dollars needed to build the first two Houses (the original estimate was seven million) on the field next to Hill Hall at 34th and Chestnut Sts., only one million has been collected. Out of the $17.5 million needed for these new residences only a total of slightly more than $2 million has been raised. This is why the University Council voted last April to postpone construction of even a modified House Plan for at least five years. FACULTY INVESTIGATION The group of 85 faculty and administration members decided to investigate if it might be possible, with the help of private contractors, for the University to eventually construct "less expensive residences that will still be in the spirit of the House Plan," said President Harnwell that afternoon. The decision meant that new undergraduate residences will probably be delayed until 1972 and while the House Plan is not yet completely dead, all that really remains to be done is to lower the cask.n into the ground. For although the University has collected $63 million in two-anda-half years, the remaining third of the drive is much slower in coming in and because of this many projects have been postponed. Yet major parts of many programs have been completed or are underway. This can be seen in the dramatic rise of new buildings all around campus (almost all of which have been criticized as architectural monsters). NEW BUILDINGS These structures include: • The Dietrich Graduate Library Center, the second half of th.« ten million dollar library complex. (The Charles Patterson Van Pelt Library, built in 1961, was the first) The library, which has just opened, houses the Lippincott Library (Wharton), the Pennsirran Library (Ed ucation), and, during the renovation of the Law School, the Biddle Law Library. • The Gimbel Gymnasium (37th and Walnut Sts.) with four squash courts, three basketball courts and an Olympic size swimming pool, is scheduled to be opened in a month or two. • The David Rittenhouse Laboratories (33rd and Walnut Sts.) will be ready for occupancy next month. • The "Wall" around the Fine Arts Building will be torn djwn in five months and the new facility will be open in February. • The Franklin Building, General Services and Administration (36th and Walnut Sts.) should be ready for occupancy in late fall, depending on the arrival of several critical pieces of electrical equipment. • The first part of the Social Sciences Center (between 37th and 38th Sts. on Locust SL) has been finished. A quadrangle of four buildings houses the Department of Psychology, the School of Social Work, the Graduate School of Education, a student lounge area, and a general lecture and classroom building. (The air conditioning in the Psychology Building does not work. It is now undergoing a $500,000 renovation, scheduled to be completed by the fall of 1968) Also finished during the past year was the Moore School's Graduate Research Center and a renovation of McClelland Hall (the lounge in the Men's Dorms). ON DRAWING BOARDS But just as interesting are the buildings of the "new Pennsylvania's" future. These include: Renovation of the Law School and of Bennett Hall (work started last month on both). The new Medical School Building (36th St. and Hamilton Walk) which should be finished by the fall of 1968. The Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts (37th and Walnut Sts.) is now in the first stages of design. Probable completion date is early 1970. The Freshmen Dining Commons and Dormitory Triangle will soon rise in the parking lot next to the Men's Dorms at 37th and Spruce Sts. Completion date for that project is the fall of 1970. The Economics, Regional Science and Sociology Building (opposite

the Social Sciences Center on Locust St.) should see ground-breaking ceremonies either next month or in October. BUSINESS SITES The temporary commercial facilities planned for 38th between Locust and Walnut Sts. to provide space for businesses displaced by the University are scheduled to be ready for use by September, 1968. Vance Hall (Wharton graduate 37th and Spruce Sts.) will probably be started in the fall of 1968. Construction must wait until the stores currently on the site are relocated.
The Center for Oral Health (40th and Locust Sts.), the newest part of the Dental School, has been under construction since June. Work is expected to begin next month on a parking garage for the University Museum and an addition to the squash courts. FIXING DORMS With the first part of the fiscal year gone, a five million dollar renovation of the Men's Dorms will start next month when work commences on repairs and refurbishing of Morris Dormitory. The new Humanities Building (36th and Spruce Sts. — site of the Hare Building) will get underway after the plans have been approved by the state. Thirty-sixth St between Walnut and Spruce Sts. will be closed to parking. This project symbolizes the efforts of the University to create a unified campus, stretching from 32nd to 41st Sts., with only four routes open to traffic along the way (33rd, 34th, 38th, 40th Sts.). The creation of lanscaped walks and quadrangles are at the heart of Development Plan's design for a new campus.
FRANKLIN BUILDING, which is almost completed, stands on Walnut St. between 34th and 36th Sts. It will house administration offices.

Fabulous Skimmer weekend rocks staid Franklin Field By LIZ YUSEM Skimmer Weekend at Penn is like Labor Day in Ocean City — All Hell breaks loose. It is a time for drinking, partying, and in general, "blowing your mind."
Appropriately named for the white straw skimmer hats which were so popular among Penn men ten years ago, this weekend is a continuous bash which sets the campus reeling from Friday afternoon until the wee hours of Monday morning. Traditionally, Skimmer is the last tension-relieving fling before spring semester finals. Most Penn undergrads, not about to let exams cramp their style, go all out to make this the biggest and best party weekend of the year. COLLEGE SPIRIT Skimmer this year was held under cloudy skies, but, despite the weather, the "old college lirit" was generated in megaton •lasts. Friday night on Franklin Field was a huge success as nearly 3000 students spread their blankets in the muddy turf and watched such famed performers as Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, The Young Rascals, and the Chiffons. Dungarees got dirty and countless cans of -brew were lost in the ooze, but no one seemed to mind. Houston Hall Board, sponsors of the gala event, were among the first to comment that they had indeed done a perfect job of planning. Saturday morning after the usual pre-10 A.M. cocktail parties, thronging hordes of students trooped down to the banks of the Schuylkill River where they were witness to the second show of the weekend with maybe a crew race or two thrown in. COEDS THROWN IN A couple of bleary-eyed coeds found themselves floundering helplessly in the brink, but for the most part, the afternoon was tame. About 4 P.M., Penn undergraduates put an end to the jovial festivities and departed, leaving a full night's work for members of the Fairmount Park maintenance squad.
After a relaxing dinner downtown or on campus, couples spread out among the thirty-four fraternities for an evening of partying and dancing. Each fraternity had secured a well-known band plus an unlimited supply of free booze. Sunday morning about two saw the whoopee-weary gang trudging home to the comfort of the dorm or apartment and a whole night of heavenly rest. SUNDAY—AGAIN?
And Sunday, they were up and at it again. Several braver fraternities sponsored joint cocktail parties, while others hosted brunches and open houses. But the pace was beginning to wear down. All the kegs were empty and young ladies were falling asleep on their dates' shoulders. As Sunday night drew to a close, the entire student body of the University of Pennsylvania said a silent prayer for the health and safety of future skimmers, and eyelids drooping with lack of sleep, they sadly and reluctantly opened their books for the long trek ahead. The University has been celebrating the spring rites for many years, but the name Skimmer has come into living color only recently. CALLOW DAY Skimmer weekend, the only one for which Penn men are pardoned for bringing their hometown honeys, was originally called "Callow Day" in honor of crew coach Rusty Callow. About 1948, it was decided that a special weekend should be established to honor the hard-working men of the Quaker shells and their personality-plus coach. The Callow Day weekend became immediately part of Pennsylvania tradition until Mr. Callow accepted another position at Annapolis. The students were incensed and voluntarily abandoned the weekend that bore the Callow name. Eut, Spring had to be celebrated in some way, and so. Skimmer was born as a monument to the time of flowers, and young men's fancies. The festival spirit and enthusi-
DOWN AT THE RIVER, the Schuylkill, that is, an estimated 10,000 revelers (not all students) watched the crew races. At least that's what they said they were doing. asm of this celebration increased yearly. By 1957, the rites of spring had nearly been forgotten as Skimmer was termed "a howling melee" by an official University report. TO VALLEY FORGE The school officials even thought of moving Skimmer out to Valley Forge where less damage would be done. This appeal was effectively vetoed by the students. In 1963, the Grandaddy of Skimmers reared his foaming head and Penn's stately campus rocked for weeks afterward.

News of the year Continued from Page 1 the undergraduates from the start. Popular Director of Residence Gerald Robinson was just named as the Acting Dean of Men; the odds are that he will be able to manage very well in James Craft's former spot. ANOTHER COMMITTEE Student, faculty, and administration members started off the year by forming the thing they seemed to love the most — a committee. This one was designed to implement the findings of the report of the Student Committee on Undergraduate Education (SCUE). The SCUE Report, released in April, 1966, called for a number of major educational reforms. The Pass/Fail program it suggested (in which a student either passes or fails a course but gets no grade in it) was put into effect last fall and was enthusiastically accepted by the student body. Student leaders and The Daily Pennsylvanian then started a drive for better facilities at the Student Health Clinic. This soon faded with the start of the football season, the time when a Pennsylvanian's fancy turns to dates, drinks, and parties. However coach Bob Odell wasn't able to keep up his 1965 record of 44-1 and the Quakers ended with a 2-7 record (1-6 in Ivy play). POT ARRESTS On September 11, the University was faced with the first of several arrests of University stu-, dents for possession of marijuana.
The debate which arose over the question of whether the University should punish the students in addition to any punishment by civil authorities still hasn't been settled. Howdy Doody and Buffalo Bob then arrived on campus in a special benefit performance for Campus Chest.
Vance Packard spoke in the first Connaissance lecture. The Free University opened for the fall term with over 50 courses ranging from psychedelics to the Japanese game of Go. A hassle over the involvement of non-students in the organization was resolved the morning ot registration, and the Free University was granted the use of classroom space after a liaison committee was chosen to work with the University. TELEPHONE SIGN-OUTS Dean of Women Emerson welcomed in October by permitting women residents to sign out after curfew by telephone. The only one to see anything wrong with the plan was The Daily Pennsylvanian, which commented, "How can you call in for a late signout when the switchboard close,, early?" Houston Hall plaza was soon the scene of a number of rallies against the war in Vietnam and against secret research into C-B warfare being conducted at the University. Students also picketed outside the offices of President Harnwell and Provost David Goddard. The protests added more heat to the simmering fire over secret research at Pennsylvania. PARIETALS ISSUE Early autumn was also the time when the drive for increased visiting hours for women in the Men's Dorms was started. The kick-off of the battle was a statement made by former Dean of Men James P. Craft, Jr. In what the DP later termed "The Quote of the Year," Craft said, "Nobody has convinced me that you can have a satisfactory date in a small room on the fifth floor. I think it would be a boring situation." Both the Men's Residence Board and the student government's Committee on Social Reg-

ONE OF THE brilliant coups of Mrs. Emerson's tenure as Dean of Women was the time she turned a potential rowbottom into a mixer at Hill Hall. As the men stormed the barricades the night after Hey Day, campus guards opened the doors to Hill Hall, specially outfitted with a band and an impromptu dance floor (above) for the occasion.
ulations then proposed that the parietal hours be extended from 9 P.M. Friday; 11 P.M. Saturday; to 2 A.M. Friday and Saturday and 6 P.M. the rest of the week. A month later the Committee on Residence Operations, composed of five students, five professors and five administration members, postponed taking action on the proposals. The Daily Pennsylvanian reacted with front page editorials and the students reacted with a rowbottom in

York Mayor John Lindsay, and Detroit Mayor Jerome Cavanaugh, along with several others, came to campus for a conference on urban affairs. Two days later Supreme Court Justice William Douglas (accompanied by his pretty young wife) gave the second Connaissance lecture of the year.
When the undergraduates got back in January they found that their protest had worked and that Craft had agreed to extend the hours to 1 A.M. on both Friday and Saturday. COMMITTEE REPORT But many other things hap-

Campus political parties were springing up all over the place, and, in a matter of even more importance, the "Dirty Drug" (Cy's Penn Luncheonette) had been renovated over vacation.

IRVINE AUDITORIUM, located at 34th and Spruce Sts., is usually described as an architectural monstrosity. Rumors ascribe its design to a flunk-out Penn architecture student who donated it to the University alter he became rich and famous. He said the designs that gave him the flunking grades must be the basis for the auditorium's design, the myth continues. The story isn't true, but it retrains a bit of tradition that is passed on from class to class. Oh, yes! The inside is uglier than the outside.
Continued from Page 6 dividualized majors. Students took up the cry of "sell-out" after the Trustees announced a "change in priorities" leading to a $5 million renovation of the Men's Dorms. The Daily Pennsylvanian said the House Plan was going to be dropped. It was right. Ten non-credit seminars, proposed by The Daily Pennsylvanian Managing Editor Marc J. Turtletaub, were opened for registration in early February. Over 250 students applied for the 100 places available. Students were also looking for their snow shovels as a heavy storm hit Philly and blanketed the University. SUPREMES SING The Supremes came to the University, as did Arthur Schlesinger. Turtletaub's series on faculty tenure stirred up much bitter controversy, especially in the English and sociology departments. A fire gutted two rooms of newly-opened Stiteler Hall, however the real shock of the blaze was that the fire door was found to have been chained shut. The battle over secret research really started to boil when 12 faculty members announced on February 20th that if the University didn't drop the two projects they would wear gas masks to Commencement. But students temporarily disregarded that hassle and went to the polls to vote in the first completely coed election. The Red and Blue party continued in power, as Alexius Conroy was elected President. But the opposition group, the New University Party, won almost every independent seat to come up with 12 votes in the new Assembly, in addition to getting 40% of the ballots in the presidential race. March saw the University challenge the University of Texas on the GE College Bowl. Pennsylvania lost 255-230 in the last few seconds. DRAFT CHANGE President Johnson's declaration that graduate school deferments
would be dropped frightened many
a senior who could suddenly see himself at the University of Saigon rather than working for his master's degree in the States. In the days before spring vacation, The Daily Pennsylvanian got new editors, three coeds tried out for the cheerleading squad, and the planned gas mask protest was dropped as Harnwell declared that both of the chemical-biological warfare research projects would not be extended beyond March, 1968. But when students returned to campus, the battle over Spice Rack and Summit had grown into almost a full-scale war. Harnwell admitted that he had renewed Project Spice Rack until 1S69. He said that he had done it to ensure that the University City Science Center (UCSC) in which the University owns over 50% of the stock, would get the projects in July, 1967 without having to worry about whether the projects would be renewed. The President also admitted that he had not consulted the Faculty Senate's special committee on research before agreeing to the extension. CHARGES HURLED The faculty and the administration then started two weeks of charges and countercharges. One student, in a harbinger of what was to come, started a daily "stand-in" in front of Harnwell's office. Other things were happening while the Spice Rack-ICR controversy was going on, though. For the first time, non-fraternity sophomores were to be allowed to live outside the dorms. Those who got to move into apartments were chosen by lot with 50 per cent getting the option to move and 33 per cent of the independents deciding to accept the opportunity. As March slipped away, Dick Gregory and The Daily Pennsylvanian CourseGuide arrived, while Jeremiah Ford, director of athletics at the University since 1953, left. Ford was fired because Penn needed a new spirit in sports, Continued on Page 8

News of the Year Continued from Page 7 said Dr. Harry Fields, assistant to the President for athletic affairs. Ford was one of the founders of the Ivy athletic conference and his dismissal brought expressions of regret from around
the league. COEDS NIXED The idea of coed cheerleaders was overwhelmingly defeated in a student poll; while the dorm counselors stopped a Rowbottom. Hans Morgenthau opened the International Affairs Association conference on the U.S.S.R. Nine University faculty members won Guggenheim Fellowships, placing the University fourth in the nation in number of fellowships won. The Mobilization for Peace in Vietnam then brought the University its first "paint-in." The construction wall around the Fine Arts Building was covered witn anti-war signs. But a few hours later students supporting the war came and "painted-out" the signs with whitewash. The anti-war people came back with a new batch of painted signs only to be once again covered over by the pro-war people. Finally the only things covering the wall were six coats of paint and a large arrow marked "To the Library." PART-TIME HUSBAND Historian Henry Steele Com-
Skimmer Continued from Page 5 students. When the dust had cleared and the insurance companies had settled all damage claims. Skimmer had been wiped from the records as Penn tradition. "The good name of the University is being endangered," said former Vice-President for Student Affairs Gene Gisburne, "by a few undisciplined students." 1964 was the year of the big gripe. Skimmer was positively outlawed and the kids, upon smelling the clean, fresh spring air, were restless. A few brilliant individuals hit upon a solution whereby Penn students could have a mockSkimmer. It would be christened Remmiks (Skimmer spelled backwards) and would be dry and orderly. The students complied, and Remmiks weekend was altogether successful. The following spring, the University Administration blessed the plans for Skimmer 65, and the creaky wheels started rolling. And, by 1967 Skimmer was again a well established, though somewhat modified, Penn institution.

to buy one. About 100 copies of the book's second printing have not yet been sold and will be available at the offices of The Daily Pennsylvanian, in the basement of Sergeant Hall, 34th and Chestnut Sts. The Guide, a 90-page book of course reviews written by and for undergraduates, is an invalu able aid to course selection. The reviews are always candid, and supply information not found in the Catalogue. For only $1.75, the Course Guide can be yours.

Parents, relatives, and friends who want to follow both the news of the University and the accomplishments of the freshman class can have a subscription mailed to their homes for $10 a year, $6 a semester. Blanks for subscriptions will also be available at the DP offices during New Student Week. A request has been made to
the Registrar to allow the DP to set up a booth at registration, but no final action has been taken.
mager spoke about the limits of American power in the last Connaissance lecture of the year. College for Women sophomore Liz Freedman placed an ad in the DP asking for a part-time husband so she could move out of the women's dorms. (She later appeared on the Tonight Show. The coed received hundreds of proposals but decided to move into a new dorm that will open for the first time this fall.) And then, on Thursday, April 20, the campus exploded. It was Hey Day, the traditional formal advancement of classes and presentation of honors. The Daily Pennsylvanian hit the stands with two block-busters. First, a copyrighted article revealed major pledge hazing in at least eight fraternity houses. Second, several students announced the formation of a group called "STOP." a group designed at creating a "direct action" protest against the secret research project STUDENTS WALK OUT But the day was just starting. That afternoon over 50 students wearing gas masks joined in the traditional cane march to protest against Spice Rack and Summit. Then, during the President's speech at Irvine Auditorium, they stood silently and then filed out. And that night Dean Emerson stopped a well-planned rowbottom by opening the doors to the women's dorms, hiring a band, and staging an impromptu mixer. The next day was the start of Skimmer, and students took advantage of the weekend to forget the fast-approaching finals. But when they got back on Monday, things weren't quiet. SIT-IN AND SLEEP-IN STOP announced it would hold a sit-in on the first floor of College Hall. But when the protest began on Wednesday, they not only took over the first floor corridors, but they moved into Harnwell's reception room. They stayed "for two days. One week later the Board of Trustees held its spring meeting. As the meeting ended Harnwell went before the waiting television cameras to announce that the projects would not be transferred to the Pennsylvania-controlled UCSC, and that the University would sever all connection with them. It had only been a few days before that The Pennsylvanian, in its last issue of the year, had called on Harnwell to resign. That issue also revealed that ViceProvost for Student Affairs A. Leo Levin had called for restrictions on fraternity pledging. And during the last week Gerald Robinson was named as the Acting Dean of Men. Mario Savio would be proud.
CRAiMPED HOUSTON HALL was the subject of the Frevd Committee's studies, which recommended that the old facility be renovated and exDanded to hold the numerous student organizations with outdated or non-existent office facilities, as well as to provide more recreational opportunities for the general student body.

Penn leads Ivies in per cent of admission, number of applicants By MARVIN ISRAELOW More students applied for admission this year to the University than to any others of the Ivy League schools. Pennsylvania accepted a greater percentage of applicants than the other Ivies. Pennsylvania ranked second to Cornell in the ratio of applicants accepted to the number of freshmen expected to matriculate. Cornell accepted 1,600 for a class of 748, while Harvard accepted only 1,360 for a class of 1200. Newspaper reports in the spring noted that the Ivy League colleges are moving away from geographical distribution as a major standard in admitting students, and called the recently evolving standard "student diversity." Dean of Admissions at Pennsylvania, William G. Owen, said geographical distribution for the Class of 1971 is not any different than in the past. He said that the "postage address standard" has not been a significant element of admissions policy for a number of years. OTHER IVIES CONFORM The "postage address standard" has not been significant to conform to the doctrine of diversity that we've been preaching for years, said Owen. The importance of geographical distribution was to secure students of various social and cultural environments so that undergraduates would be exposed to individuals of different values and mores at the University, he commented. Owen said that when he visited California to interview prospective students he found that the high school applicants in uppermiddle class neighborhoods held basically the same values as eastern high school applicants of similar income classes. "Geographical distribution is certainly an element of diversity," Owen admitted, "but in isolation it is superficial." "Our policy," he said, "which has been fairly consistent over
TAKE TIME — TO KEEP YOUR WATCH ON TIME
the years, is basically non-discriminatory." He said, however, "If you preach diversity, then by nature the policy must be discriminatory to some extent." One of the problems in selecting students is reconciling this conflict of discrimination and diversity. NO QUOTA SYSTEM "We think it is educationally sound that students of many different backgrounds rub shoulders at the University," Owen said. When judging an applicant, he said, "We consider all of the influences that would make him an interesting person in the student mix, and make the mix as broad as possible without approaching this idea on a quota basis." Owen said that one of the shortcomings of the University is the significant urban orientation of applicants. He hopes to concentrate more in the future on increasing the number of applicants from small towns. Ivy colleges are accepting more Jews than in the past. Owen said, "There has been too much emphasis along ethnic, religious lines." He said that religious distribution for incoming classes at Pennsylvania could only be determined by responses to the various religious organizations on campus.
WILLIAM G. OWEN 'No Address Standard'
Undergraduates and the draft
Students face a moral issue By WILLIAM BURCHILL Perhaps it was the air of secrecy shrouding the exact dimensions of the Vietnam troop buildup in the summer and fall of 1965 that kept the controversy over the draft, its morality, inequalities, and place in a democratic society, from immediately invading the national press and the conversation mills of campuses across the nation. By the end of the first semester, however, rumors were widespread of shrinking manpower* pools and of approaching induction of many college students. The situation seemed a far cry from that of several years earlier, when draft calls were so low that determents could be had for the asking, regardless of reason.
This change followed temporary administration rejection of a plan to abolish class ranks, on the grounds that all students, including those who want their grades reported, would then face the danger of being drafted because of inadequate information to their local boards. Provost Goddard said then that he would consider student opinion on the validity of reporting class ranks to local draft boards if a vast majority of students indicate disapproval of the present system. "We hav» to be careful that we do not adhere to the wishes of a small number of students who claim to be speaking for all students," Goddard said, and this logic justified the staging of the referendum.

partisan support of continuing undergraduate exemptions for another four years, barring national emergency. It is ironic that continued student deferments were assured by the decision of Rivers, a rural Southern congressman, and a Vietnam "hawk," who has been no strong supporter of higher education or of students' penchant for protest. Prominent representatives of liberal circles, in politics and out, who willingly applied their thinking to finding policy alternatives in Vietnam, failed to take the lead in supporting continued draft deferments for undergraduate and graduate students. They apparently sought application of the ideal of social equality to the draft issue, failing to understand that, while men may be born equal in theory, they do not long remain equal in their value to humanity or their nations. Educated people are not better than anyone else, but they are more vesatile and more adaptable to complex tasks, and therefore worthy, while they are in school, of exemption from the routine of military service in situations not directly involving the nation's survival or requiring specialized skills. HAWKS RENDER SERVICE Thus the "hawks" have rendered a service in this case by assuring that the draft remains as fair to the nation as a whole and to its individual citizens as human fallibility will allow. Perhaps this strange reversal of roles, in which conservatives and "hawks," like Rivers, Ford, and Senator Richard Russell, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, support student deferments, while "doves" and domestic liberals, like Senators Robert and Edward Kennedy, oppose continued educational exemptions, was best explained by columnist Joseph Kraft, who has observed that "doves" need to expose and expand the effect of Vietnam on civilian life in order to strengthen their position. Those who believe this nation's interests hinge on the survival of a South Vietnam completely frae of Communist influence, however, want to ignore the atrocities and inconveniences of war and encourage others to do the same, so that disillusion and dissent will be held to a minimum. By this logic, students will be less likely to protest the war if it offers little prospect of personal involvement. DOUBLE EFFECT In fact, the efforts of those who Continued on Page 31

Confessions of a second-year man ■K Stephen Mormon
"There's no vice like advice." — Will Rogers Any attempt to give counsel to new freshmen is futile; I remember all the suggestions I brushed off last summer. But it's worth a try, so here goes. Do bring every bit of junk (pictures, posters, stop signs, bull horns, etc.) that you can lug from
home. Your dorm room will look like a prison cell when you arrive and if you don't make it
livable you won't be able to stand it. Do trudge up to the furniture stores at 40th and Market Sts. with your roommate and buy a used rug or coffee table. (During the walk notice the beauty of the community surrounding the University.) Don't be bothered by University bureaucracy during registration and New Student Week; it takes the administration months to get the red tape all together. Laugh and enjoy it. Do go to Opening Exercises; it will be one of the few times that you will ever see President Harnwell in the flesh. Do go to the first few meetings of each of your classes. If
you can't stand the teacher, drop him and add someone else immediately. (Drop and Add is the complicated double carbon, triplicate process needed to change sections or courses. It will be explained to you during your first week. You will not fully understand it until you are a second semester junior.) Don't buy your books until a few days after classes have started. Do sit with your floormates (or suitemates) for the first meal
or two. after that move around and try to meet people. (There are 1600-odd other members of the Class of '71 and it won't hurt you to get acquainted with as many as possible, rather than staying with the same group all the time.) Do learn to tolerate the food at two or three of the local eating places and go to them fairly regularly. [People to know: John at the Drug (Cy's Penn Luncheonette, 34th and Walnut Sts.); Al at Al's Penn House (37th and Spruce Sts.); Sam at the White Tower (37th and Spruce Sts.); the Macke Vending ladies at the Wharton Basement (Dietrich Hall)]. Do visit all the booths on Activities Night and go to the smokers of the ones that interest you. .(It's an easy way to get a free cup of lukewarm coffee, some soggy doughnuts or stale cookies, and meet a few of the interesting people on campus.) Do even if you are a die-hard, anti-fraternity man (or anti-sorority woman); visit the houses, attend the orientation sessions, and go to the coffee dates. You may be pleasantly surprised by what you find, the food is free, and on Saturday nights it doesn't hurt to have some friends in a few different houses. Do tune in WXPN (they need the listeners) and do buy Penn Comment and Punchbowl (they need the money). Do write nasty letters to the DP if A.) you want to get into campus politics or B.) you are a nasty person. Do sign up for a seminar or take one course that isn't in the normal freshman program. It will probably be worth more
DON'T BUY YOUR books on the first day of classes. The lines stretch for a block. to you than all the rest of your makes teachers very happy). cial structure would provide a
courses put together and will give you something to talk about anyway. If you find a professor you like and who has any sort of interest in you, invite him out for coffee — he will be happy to accept and you will have rediscovered part of the intellectual activity the campus is missing. Do get involved in something. March for peace. March for war. Find a cause or activity and get into it (There's even an apathy group for those who don't care about anything. They might meet sometime this semester.) Don't be surprised when you get the first C's and D's of your life. It's not that the professor doesn't understand you, it's that you don't understand the professor, and what he wants. Don't worry, things get better. In the mean time the only thing to do is keep at or below the cut limit (twice the number of class hours per week) and answer questions in class (the latter
Do believe the following even though you will be told it dozens of times and probably never will believe it. There are hundreds of cute freshmen women (and good-looking freshmen men) without dates on every weekend of the school year. Men: the beautiful blonde sitting next to you would be happy to go to the football game with you if you would only ask her a few days in advance. (Dress for football
games is ties and jackets for men and dresses for ladies.) Women: the handsome fellow across the aisle is just as shy as you are, so go over, introduce yourself, and start a conversation. Freshmen do go out with freshmen, no matter what we sophomores may say. Don't be nervous. These are the same kids you went to high school with. Don't plan to become a BMOC within a week. There are 6800 other undergraduates and the so-
good topic for a master's thesis. Do try to see something of Philadelphia. Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are not just for squares. Neither are the magnificent Philadelphia Orchestra or the grand old Academy of Music where it performs. After visiting the original Horn and Hardart's, take a bus back to campus and watch the sidewalks being rolled in for the night. Do reserve a copy of the Record (the yearbook). Buy football and basketball tickets. Avoid 8 A.M. classes. Go to the 11 A.M. coffee hours at Houston Hall. Learn how to use the library. Write home. Throw a good Row-
bottom. One final bit of advice. It was told to me upon my arrival here and I will now tell it to you in the hopes that you will pass it on too. It will be a sentence of major significence in your years here at the University. "Never
take a Number Ten Trolley!"

Changing College has many major programs r>
DIETRICH HALL is the home of the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce, the first collegiate school of business in this countrv. The Wharton School is headquarters 'or the political science, sociology, and international relations departments of the University.
Wharton is instructor of theory The Wharton School, the nation's oldest collegiate institution for business instruction, enters the 1967-68 academic year continuing its emphasis on theory rather than practical training in finance and commerce. According to Frederick Kempin, vice-dean, the philosophy of the Wharton School has attempted "to provide the broadcast base of liberal arts education within the theoretical framework of business." The sincerity of this effort is attested to by Wharton's exclusion of all "strictly business courses" from its first year curriculum. The rotters of incoming freshmen will be designed to ensure a "broad liberal arts exposure" and all freshmen are required to select a natural science course in their first year. MATH REVAMPED The Wharton matn course has also been drastically revamped in recent years. Given a new staff, a new number, 130, and a new function, the math department plans to emphasize calculus and linear algebra while dropping matrix and set theory work. The economics and business law Continued on Page 19
Under the leadership of Dean Otto Springer and with the help of Provost David Goddard, the College of Arts and Sciences has become one of the finest liberal arts schools in the nation. Through the College, undergraduates can expose themselves to distinguished faculty members in practically all the fields of human knowledge in the arts and sciences. With the operation of the Pass/ Fail program and the newly-inaugurated Individualized Major Program, the College has become a leader of the nation's liberal arts schools. A great deal of criticism, however, has been levelled at the hiring and firing system at the College. The tenure system was
For the first time
President Harnwell-man under fire As President of the nation's first university, Dr. Gaylord P. Hamwell started and ended the past academic year in a cloud of turmoil unequaled in his 14 years in the position. Harnwell lost both student and faculty support as a result of his often contradictory statements about secret research at the University. In its last issue of the year, The Daily Pennsylvanian suggested that Harnwell think about stepping down from his post and informed sources said the President might resign in May, 19S8. However, Harnwell's leadership in the growth of the University since 1953 still commands him the respect and admiration of many members of the University community. UNDER FIRE The President also came under fire for maintaining insufficient contact with the undergraduates and their needs. But his red Toronado will still be seen in front of College Hall, while "GPH," wearing his customary bow-tie, goes down Smith Walk to teach his physics class. Famous for his research in
acoustics and in nuclear physics, Harnwell received the Medal of Merit for his work during World War II in the development of sonar. He was chairman of the University Department of physics when appointed as the successor to Harold Stassen in 1953. Born in Evanston, Illinois, Harnwell received his bachelor's degree from Haverford College, and did his graduate work at Cambridge and Princeton Universities. He spent two years as a National Research fellow at the California Institute of Technology, and was later named as the first holder of the Mary Amanda Wood Chair of Physics at the University.
RECEIVED AWARD Two years ago the President received the coveted Philadelphia Award for leadership. He recently received an honorary degree from Harvard and was selected as one of the three public governors of the New York Stock Exchange. Responsible only to the Board of Trustees, Harnwell, as the chief executive officer of the Uni-

described last year by an English faculty member as one where "publish or die" prevails. STUDENTS AID On the positive side, two students sit on the Committee of Instruction of the College, and their urging led to the adoption of both the P/F and Individualized Major Programs. A close look at each of the departments offering instruction in the College will show only a very few of which are not among the top in the nation. American Civilization is a small but strong department. This major is an excellent preparation for several different fields, including sociology, history and law. Although it only draws about 15 or 20 majors from each class, anthropology is considered by many to be the most interesting major in the school. The University Museum helps make Pennsylvania the leading United States institution in the field of archaeology. The School of Architecture is probably the best architecture school associated with a university in the country. The undergraduate major, which attracts about 30 per class, is intended to prepare students for a career in architecture. The department of art offers a major in art history and in studio courses. Together these two majors generally draw ten per class. Slavic Languages, especially Russian, is a good department, but it is growing and plans to expand greatly in the near future. Associate Professor Mieczyslaw Giergielewicz is one of America's top students of Polish literature. SOCIOLOGY Sociology, a Wharton department, is extremely strong and offers the College student many interesting courses. Professor William Kephart is a leading expert on marriage and the family. Dr. E. Digby Bailzell is a well known student of social classes in America. The schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and the department of biology combine to form one of the world's leading centers of biological research. Classics, because of the UniverContinued on Page 24
Dr. Levin starts new Provost Goddard, academic chief, era in student affairs fought C-B research at Penn Of the University's highest officials, probably the only one to come out of the battle over secret research relatively unscathed was Provost David Goddard. Pennsylvania's chief educational officer had been a behindthe-scenes opponent of chemical-biological warfare, Projects Spice Rack and Summit for over a year, and it was his views on C-B that were finally adopted by the Trustees at their meeting in early May. Goddard gained even more stature when his speech to over 100 protestors, urging them not to picket the Trustee's meeting, helped hold off a possible demonstration. He has since been rumored to be a possible interim replacement after President Harnwell retires. As academic leader of the University, Goddard has chief authority over appointments,
promotions and tenure. He also not only works with the faculty, the administration and the Trustees, but is responsible for coordinating all research work in the University. Goddard has held visiting professorships at the Rockefeller Institute and the University of Washington and was elected to membership in the highly prestiious National Academy of Sciences in 1950. A former president of the American Society of Plant Physiologists and winner of its Stephen Hales medal, he has served as a consultant to the U.S. Public Health Service, the President's Science Advisory Board, and the National Institute of Health. Goddard is a native of California but spent most of his early years in New Jersey. He took his degrees (B.S. through Ph.D.) at the University of California.
DR. DAVID GODDARD Unscathed
When Professor of Law A. Leo Levin was appointed vice-provost for student affairs last year, observers said it was the beginning of a new era for student- administration relations at the University. His appointment was at least a shift in the faculty-administration balance of power. Student affairs had previously come under the office of VicePresident for Student Affairs Gene Gisburne, a dour man who rarely even talked to student leaders. He certainly knew few of *hem. Levin has changed all that, and his never-ceasing efforts to get to know students and to involve them in making decisions that affect them has been hailed by many. FACULTY POST The vice-provostship is a faculty post; a vice-presidency is an administrative one. Although Levin's office is still the umbrella agency that oversees the dean's offices, the residence offices, admissions, and similar units, he has made a complete break in policy with the man he only refers to
as his "predecessor." When President Harnwell announced Levin's appointment, he said, "This appointment reflects the marked changes in undergraduate life which has evolved in recent years. Characteristic of the changes are the increased student concern for the educational process and for closer faculty-student relationships." A graduate of Yeshiva College, Levin received an honorary doctorate from that institution in 1960. He completed the work towards an LL. B. at Pennsylvania's Law School in 1942, and after the war was named a University Fellow at Columbia's Law School. Levin was appointed an assistant professor at the University of Iowa in 1948, and then returned to the Law School at the University, where he was named an assistant professor in 1949, an associate professor in 1951, and a full professor in 1953. Before taking over the viceprovost's office in Logan Hall, Levin served as chairman of the Faculty Senate and Vice-Chairman of the University Council.

Welcome! A strange, terrible, wonderful, awe-inspiring elixir permeates the air of this and every other great university. No one has ever measured it. No one has ever named it. No one has ever denied its existence. No scientist will ever synthesize it, but almost anyone who has ever been exposed to it can give the formula. Start with several cornucopiae of knowledge. Add just enough urgency and excitement to make the mixture bubble, but not so much that it vaporizes. Lace well with confusion, but be sure to follow this with a liberal measure of optimism lest the potion turn dark and bitter. Salt lightly with cynicism and skepticism, but take care that the acridness of the last two ingredients does not overpower the subtle flavor of idealism. Season to taste with footballs, Greek letters, skimmer hats, and shore weekends. Mix well, spread evenly over grassy lawns and in ivy covered halls, and allow the potion to stand for several generations. The result will be a university. A university such that no one who has ever crossed the invisible border separating it from the everyday world will ever forget it. Almost any experience will slide into the limbo of the subconscious as the years roll over it; but the memory of a university education never will, because the mind that remembers it has in large measure been shaped by it. The child never forgets its mother, and the intellect neither can, nor, within the confines of sanity, desires to disown that which formed it. Yet the strangest property of this mystical entity which we call a university is that despite the powerful force which it exerts on its denizens, it is the individual who determines what its effect will be. The university is a convoluted maze of pathways, one or more of which will lead the person to almost any goal he chooses. The thorn on this flowering shrub of opportunity, the challenge which you will soon face, is the choice which must be made among these pathways. Only you can make the selection; and no matter how carefully you ponder the decision, you will never be certain that your choice was best. Some roads are easy; others are hard. But even this is no infallible criterion. Stern morality to the contrary, there is no reason why your natural inclination, the pathway which for you is the easiest, need be the wrong one. Nor need it be the right one. No formula can promise you a sure and certain guide to the best pathways. But several are well calculated to lead you to the wrong ones. One of these is an indifference to the challenge, a coin - flipping fatalism that follows no pathway and hence reaches no goal. Another is an unflagging obeisance to the advice of others; such a policy may lead to the easy, empty goals of popularity and acceptance, but it will accomplish more only by sheerest chance. The only advice which we can offer is that which a character in one of Andre Gide's novels once offered another: "It is best to follow one's own inclinations, providing the road leads upward." ■

STEPPING Off THE DEEP END The world outside
Introduction to Funn U. Phil Arkow Funn University — an insectarian nonstitution for boys and girls of all ages —
is located in lovely Euphoria, Lysergia, along the banks of a quiet stream which, for more than 200 years, has been the school's prime source of laundry, drinking water and ice cubes. Founded by the eminent eighteenthcentury philosopher, playwright, playboy, and man of all possible worlds. Franklin J. Benjamin, Funn U. has long enjoined a
reputation of academic freedom, social liberality and close faculty-student relations. Through the ivy-hollowed portals of Funn U. each year pass an estimated 8000 administration and faculty members, and an additional 3000 students. The University offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in 33 student-planned majors, under the capable and auspicious administrative hands of University President Probosco Hornwell. FACILITIES AT FUNN Funn U.'s modern facilities, already outdated by the massive growth of the school in the past few centuries, are currently undergoing a massive exorcism and renovation. A $93,000,000 building program, expected to cost $150,000,000 by its completion, will, by 1970, have turned Funn U. into one of the largest medical, scientific and computerized problems on the East Coast. Already the casual tourist and student can see the dynamic foreshadowings of a prestigious future for Funn U. in a campus walk — the phallic Phranklin Building, the cancerous Rottenhouse Bathtub and the Jeremy Ford Shoebox Fine Arts Edifice. Funn University has a national reputation as a novel leader in archaeology and Egyptology, and the influence is felt by most of the students. Statistics show that the figures are staggering. Funn U.'s happy, contented students constantly express admiration at the ancient archaeological relics that are always thrust before their classes. INFAMOUS REPUTATION The school is also known internationally as a center for chemical and biological whore-fare research. Such projects as Gummint Summint and Ricesplat skyrocketed Funn U. into prominence last year. The school's new Universe City Science Center is currently doing international research on correlating the problems of the population explosion with dwindling food reserves in the Far East through defoliation, and the school's dining service showed a net profit of $188,000 last year. Student life at Funn U. is a four-year academic and emotional and sexual experi-
ence, according to Robert's Rules of Order and Hoyle's Established Dormitory Ethics.
A wide variety of extracurricular activities flourish on campus to frustrate the eager collegian. MANY OUTLETS For the perspiring writer, an entire gamut of on-campus organs are available for
manipulation and publication. The Daily Funnsylvania, Funnchbowl, and Funn Comment are just a few of the many
outlets of the literary cesspool. For the politician, the University's student government offers a majestic study in coordination and planning. The organization this year slowed down its activities somewhat, reducing its province of leadership from two governments to one, but student leaders are confident the "tried and true" system of parallel legislatures will return. For the athlete, Funn U. boasts one of the largest lacrosse teams in the state and the best ice hockey team in the county. Funn U. won the intercollegiate Riot, Rustling, Rowbottom and Raucus Award from the NCAA last year. FUN AT FUNN U. But the Funniest social activity at Funn U. is, of course, the fraternity, of which 34 proliferate the campus. Here, within the secluded inner sanctums of Greekdom, 30 per cent of the student body practice the age-old secret rites of Neanderthalism. There is a fraternity for every stereotype of boy, and for every girl looking for a boy. Several sororities dot the campus and occasionally make their presents felt. Fraternities and sororities are not the exclusive social events on Funn's campus. The Funn student has a wide variety of weekend activities, including cramming, cribbing, drinking, sleeping, Harcumming and contracting Ptomaine Ptoisoning. The city of Euphoria is only minutes away and is a large metropolitan cultural center open only on Mondays. The school is only two hours away from New Work City, scene of many Funn U. frolics on weekends. Yes, Funn U. is definitely an important and revolutionary campus with something for everyone. It provides a fine academic background for a wonderful career in business administration and other humanities. It will convert the adolescent high school student into an aesthetic and mercenary adult. Doesn't your son or daughter belong at Funn U.? Isn't this what you've always wanted in a college education for your children? Shouldn't you send us a small contribution right now as a token appreciation of what Funn U. stands for? Huh?

Historic College Hall is melting Students and faculty who spend their academic lives passing the commonplace scenery of the University may be totally oblivious to the ominous danger lurking behind all the ivy: College Hall is melting. The scaffolding and the teams of workers occasionally clustered around Ye Olde College Hall are not there to beautify the building, nor are they part of the Development Program. Rather, they are fighting a nip-andtuck century-long battle to keep the staid old administration building from crumbling into a pool of polluted oblivion. College Hall, Logan Hall, the Hare Building, and part of the University Hospital were built during the late 1800's with a green stone called serpentine. The material was a favorite one for construction during the latter part of the 19th century, and the Chester quarry that supplied serpentine became famous. Serpentine was perfect for the 1880's, but builders failed to foresee the pollution of today's air. During the past century, there has been a tremendous increase in the amount of impurities in the atmosphere. Automobile carbon monoxide is mere trivia compared to the noxious fumes exuded by the refineries, reduction companies, and incinerators in polluted south and southwest Philadelphia.
IT'S NOT RAINING VIOLETS These fumes are heavily concentrated with sulfur and sulfides; when it rains, it's literally raining sulfuric acid. The sulfur reacts with the magnesium sulfate—more commonly known as epsom salts. When it rains, College Hall pours. Over the years, Buildings and Grounds has been fighting the deteriorating effects of the rock decay. The facades of College and Logan Halls and the Hare Building have been under constant replastering for decades. The edifices are plastered with a greenish-dyed compound which looks like the original serpentine. It also decomposes like the original serpentine. The workmen are often busy replastering the plaster. There is no danger of Houston Hall's melting into the ground. A geologist has assured The Daily Pennsylvanian that the building is composed of a relatively safe Wissahickon schist. They say they don't build 'em like they used to, but with the University's buildings this does not hold water, or alka seltzered magnesium compounds as the case may be. The new buildings going up all around the campus, the geologist assured us, have facades that will last for "thousands of years." It isn't raining rain you know, it's raining H2S04. And when you hear it thunder, don't run into College Hall. You might find the whole building sloshing away.

Robinson and Emerson move up
New appointments look good for undergrads By WILLIAM BURCHILL For the first time in the recent history of the University, something happened to join together all major strata of the undergraduate student body in a protest movement late last fall. The results were far greater than those of the typical demonstration in front of College Hall. The issue was extended parietal hours, and the scene was the Men's Dormitories on a mild December night. Sharp attacks by The Daily Pennsylvanian on the administration's vacillation in handling the parietal issue had set the stage
tive shakeup that placed Dean of Women, Alice Emerson, after only one year at the University, in the office of Assistant Vice-Provost for Student Affairs, and Gerald Robinson, former Director of Residence, as Dean of Men, replacing Navy career off icer James Craft. UNIVERSITY DETERMINATION These shifts directly reflect the University's determination to promote campus tranquility in cases involving issues between the administration and students. Mrs. Emerson has proved that she can handle rowbottoms (she and three employes of the Dean

It was her arrival that gave rise to the first hope for reform of outmoded parietals and women's signout procedures, and she indicated sympathy with student concern over Vietnam and University secret research when she gave coeds participating in the around-the-clock College Hall sitin unconditional permission to remain overnight.

3 Western faiths represented
Religious organizations provide variety of services "Although many freshmen are looking forward to the freedom they will enjoy at Penn, they may become upset when they realize they must fend for themselves." These words reflect the experience of the man to whom many students turn when they need a counsellor — University Chaplain Stanley E. Johnson. A graduate of Princeton University, the Rev. Johnson is serving in his fifth year as chaplain at Pennsylvania. An Episcopalian minister, Chaplain Johnson, 38, serves as University chaplain on a nonsectarian basis. His most important duties he describes as "pastoral work," — counselling, personal advising, and visiting ill students at the University Hospital. OFFICIAL ADVISOR Official advisor to University President Harnwell on religious affairs, Rev. Johnson and his wife entertain over 1000 freshmen in their living room each year. The students, invited in groups of from ten to 40, participate in discussions with the chaplain and with prominent faculty members at these gatherings. "Incoming fresh'-ien may feel lonely and depressed at their apparent insignificance during their first few months at this huge, impersonal University," cautions the chaplain. •PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS' To avoid this feeling, Rev. Johnson advises new students to "establish meaningful personal relationships with other Penn students and with the faculty." A member of numerous University discipline, religious, and counselling committees, Chaplain Johnson often serves as a mediator in disputes between students and the administration, the faculty and the administration, and even between two student groups, two faculty groups, or two administration groups. The chaplain, whose office is in Houston Hall, represents the University at dedications, commencements, and other official functions. CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The Christian Association is first and foremost a religious organization, whose purpose is "to promote Christian faith, practice
and commitment, to present a combined Christian witness on the campus, and to involve students and faculty in a community of worship, study, and action." Further, the C.A. is an interdenominational organization, with pastors representing six different denominations — Baptist, Episcopalian, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian churches and the United Church of Christ. The C.A. attempts to strengthen the student's ties to his own church while at the same time making him aware of the community outlook of the Protestants on campus. MANY ACTIVITIES The program of the C.A. includes retreats, lectures and forums, social work, recreational fellowship, and discussion groups run by the members of the organization. The Catacombs coffee house is in the basement. In addition, the various pastors associated with the C.A. are available for personal counselling or discussion with students. The first important event on the C.A. calendar, and the one directed solely toward freshmen is the annual C.A. Open House. The Christian Association was especially prominent in the field of civil rights in recent years. The highlights of past work included the participation of several representatives in the Selma march, and a three-day civil rights conference. HILLEL FOUNDATION As the campus organization serving Jewish students, Hillel Foundation is the student synagogue, the Jewish educational institution, a community service
Two separate services will be held this September to commemorate Rosh Ha-Shanah and Yom Kippur. Rabbi Berkowitz will conduct Reform services. Year-round cultural activities are carried out by a student committee. Three years ago Hillel implemented a project called the Institute of Jewish Studies. The Foundation will hold all classes including Bible, history, philosophy, prayer book, beginning and intermediate Hebrew. Besides classes, Hillel will continue to offer students the opportunity to join the Choral Group, led by Mrs. Berkowitz, and the Folk Dance Group. In past years the Choral Group has performed in concerts at the Naval Academy and Rider College. There is also a Hillel dance group, and a branch of SZO, the Student Zionist Organization. NEWMAN CLUB Newman is the name associated with the Catholic Church on campus. It recalls John Henry Newman, 19th century scholar and religious leader in England. Cardinal New-
man's life and teachings set the tone for the Church on campus. He stood for dedication to scholarship in the service of truth, for an intellectualism whLh is as broad and complete in its embrace of learning and the love of the University. STARTED IN 1893 On-campus Newman got its start in 1893 as a service to students at the University of Pennsylvania and is presently found at more than seven hundred colleges and universities. In 19 15, the association's growth at the University of Pennsylvania warranted the establishment of St. Bede's Chapel and Newman Hall as a center for religious, cultural and social activities. A full-time priest and chaplain was appointed as rector by the Archbishop of Philadelphia. The present chaplain. Rev. James J. Murphy, is the third such rector. Newman Club students hold closed weekend religious retreats for men at the well-known Malvern Retreat Center and for women at the Raphaela Retreat House in Haverford. These closed
weekend retreats for University students are projected annually. Social activities at Newman Hall have included mixers, coffee hours, dances, buffet suppers, a Christmas party, an annual picnic, an annual ski trip, and visits to the Philadelphia Orchestra.

agency, and a guidance agency. Located at 202 S. 36th St., in the Louis Marshall House, Hillel at Pennsylvania is sponsored jointly by B'nai B'rith and the Federation of Jewish agencies.

From the residence office
Mrs. Emerson named assistant vice-provost; Robinson moves up to clean's post will stay women's dean Her intimates call her "Tish," not Alice. And she insists that students refer to her as Mrs. Emerson, despite her Ph.D. in political science from Bryn Mawr College. She is Mrs. Alice Emerson, newly-appointed assistant vice-provost for student affairs, who will also continue in her year-old role as Dean of Women. Easily the most popular, well-liked, and respected member of the administration, Mrs. Emerson is the champion of undergraduates, and is often more liberal than the students she is supposed to be keeping an eye on. Capturing the imagination of undergraduates, she inaugurated a telephone sign-out system for coeds. Echoing her liberal political leanings (she is against the war in Vietnam), she allowed coeds to take over-night signouts to the sleep-in in College Hall. STOPPED ROWBOTTOM And besting the determined freshmen men's finest efforts, she turned a potential rowbottom into
a free-swinging mixer at Hill Hall. Replacing Dr. Robert Eilers in the assistant vice-provost spot, she will assist Vice-Provost A. Lee Levin in administering the several departments grouped under the student affairs heading. Eilers left the office to direct an
interdisciplinary research effort in the Wharton School. Mrs. Emerson was born in Durham, .N. C, and graduated Radnor High School in suburban Philadelphia. She received a degree in liberal arts from Vassar in 1953, and got her Bryn Mawr Ph.D. in 1964. She continues to teach in the political science department of the Wharton School, besides keeping up her administrative duties. She has a daughter, 8, and a son, 5.
ALICE EMERSON Mrs., Not Dr.!
Gerald Robinson, the University's genial director of residence, has been appointed Acting Dean of Men for the coming academic year. He replaces Dean James Craft Jr., who has taken a leave of absence to complete his doctoral dissertation in international relations. Robinson is young (34) and has had extensive dealings with undergraduates, first as an assistant dean of admissions and then as residence director. Besides his official University work, he is a member of the Board of Governors of Friars Senior Society and chapter counselor for the University's chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, of which he is a member. WHARTON GRAD A 1955 graduate of the Wharton School. Robinson was awarded a master's degree in education at the University's 211th Commencement May 22. Robinson is not yet sure what direction the slow-footed Dean of Men's office will take under his stewardship: "I'll do what I can to change
lives as much as possible. We are not involved with this in loco parentis business of years ago." NOT ALL CONTROL
But Robinson emphasized that students should not have complete control over all the matters that affect them, as some have advocated.
GERALD ROBINSON A Lame Duck? things," he said in an interview last month. "I don't want to be a lame duck." "We just can't sit in our office — we must get actively involved.

Appointments Continued from Page 16 with the newly-inaugurated honor system for enforcement of existing parietals regulations. The Daily Pennsylvanian pointed out that, if the rules were liberalized, there would be no need for violation of the Dean's honor system. ROWBOTTOM FOLLOWED The rowbottom followed, and Dean Craft's prestige never recovered. The University learned from this sequence of events that delay in such crucial situations is disastrous, and that firm, prompt decisions are required. Furthermore, general impressions of the attitudes of administration officials are going to influence students far more than the actual attitudes, which are often unknown to students and well-concealed from the student press. When students received the impression that Dean Craft was unmoved by requests for extended parietals, irreparable damage was done, despite the fact that the
"This is not yet a democracy," he said. "Rules here are different because the community is different. It's a question of what kind of example you should set for a person going through an educational experience. We have a responsibility to students, this community, and parents. "There are some things we just can't encourage . . . but maybe we're too concerned about the reaction of the community and the parents." Robinson, who officially starts working in Logan Hall September 1, said he's willing to innovate: "I'd like to keep one step ahead

Perhaps this is why the turnover in such administrative positions as the Deans' office is relatively high. University administrators are in somewhat the same position as football coaches: Once they begin to lose the support of the University community their usefulness is at an end, no matter how good their past records. It's a sticky position.

Continued from Page 13 courses should be substantially similar to past years, although a significant number of new professors could have a positive effect in upgrading these phases of the freshman curriculum. When the Wharton School was established in 1881, its purpose was to serve as a "means for imparting a liberal education in all matters concerning Finance and Economy." Although the Wharton concept of collegiate education has changed very little over the years, the school's curriculum has been revised from time to time whenever it was felt that change could better meet the needs of future business and professional leaders. PERSONAL INSIGHT Dr. Willis Winn, dean of the Wharton School, has described the Wharton graduate as one who "will have some insight into human nature and will know what it is that motivates individuals and groups; he will be able to relate managerial decisions to the goals of an ongoing society; and he will know how to work with high speed electronic computers and the new interdisciplinary techniques of operations research and management science." Wharton in the past year continued the trend of being the least professional of all the undergraduate business schools. The trend should become a tradition according to Vice-Dean Kempin, as the Wharton curriculum, now in the early descriptive stages of maturity, leads into deeper scholastic investigation and develops theory.
Deans head undergrad schools The five deans that head up the undergraduate schools of the University have varied backgrounds and qualifications. Here are capsule biographies of each: DEAN SPRINGER The educational grounding of Pennsylvania's undergraduates in the humanities, the social and natural sciences is in large part the responsibility of one man — Otto Springer, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Vice-provost and professor of Germanic languages and literatures as well, Springer heads a college which offers courses in 29 academic disciplines, ranging from American civilization to Slavic languages. Sixty per cent of the University's undergraduates (including the 2,400 men enrolled in the College and 1.450 students in the College of Liberal Arts for Women) are majoring or planning to major in subjects taught by the College faculty. DEAN BROWNLEE Dean of the College of Liberal Arts for Women, R. Jean Brownlee is responsible for the academic progress of 1400 charges. Dean Brownlee and her staff have considerable influence in deciding the demands to be made upon Pennsylvania's liberal arts females, and to assist her in coordination of the CW program and the problems of each individual female are four counsellors.
The Dean regards the undergraduate career of her students as only a part of their educational experience which, she feels, should never cease. She states, "Our great concern is that each person has the really rich educational experience available at the University, finds herself, and sees that this is only a beginning." DEAN WINN Dr. Willis J. Winn, professor of finance in the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce, is dean of Wharton and a viceprovost of the University. Winn became associated with the Wharton School in 1940. He was named a vice-dean in 1955 and served as acting dean of the school from 1957 until his election as dean in 1958. Winn was graduated from Central College. Fayette. Mo., in 1939 with the degree of bachelor of arts. He received a master of arts degree in 1940 and the degree of doctor of philosophy from the University in 1951. He is a director of the National Bureau of Economic Research and served a three-year term as director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. DEAN WARREN Dr. S. Reid Warren, assistant vice-president, undergraduate engineering affairs, is placed in charge of the academic complex consisting of the four engineering schools. Warren has written that
"Throughout the engineering programs, emphasis is placed upon the development, in each individual student, of the capacity and desire to learn to face new problems, analyze them, prepare solutions, and execute them, a process that will occupy him during his entire professional career." Having received his B.S. in 1928, his M.S. in 1929, and Sc.D. in 1937, all from Pennsylvania's electrical engineering department, he decided to remain at the University in a full time position. He is in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in Engineering. DEAN HUTCHINSON Dean Wesley G. Hutchinson coordinates and heads the three divisions of the School of Allied Medical Professions which are united under an endearing old colonial roof on Pine Street. The school is composed of divisions of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and medical technology. Hutchinson is determined to keep the school abreast of the increasing scope of medical nrofessions and is considering the future addition of departments for X-ray technicians and medical records librarians. Hutchinson graduated Magna Cum Laude with honors in biology from Brown University in '925; he also received his master's degree there. In 1933 he received a Ph.D. from Pennsylvania and joined the faculty as an assistant professor of botany.
Science is key for future engineers The Engineering Schools of the University offer to men and womer. four-year curricula leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science in each of the following fields: chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and metallurgical engineering. There are five-year programs for those who wish to study engineering preceded by work either in the College of the University or other approved schools; such programs offer both a B.S. and a B.A. The philosophy of engineering at Pennsylvania is "based upon the essential concepts of learning to learn, learning to think creatively and independently, and working successfully through a problem in its total context. Engineers participate increasingly in the solution of problems involving scientific and other intellectual disciplines." The engineering schools are regulated under a Vice President for Engineering Affairs. Carl Chambers, and in the undergraduate division, Assistant to the Vice President for Engineering Affairs, S. Reid Warren is in charge. There are four engineering schools, the School of Chemical Engineering, the School of Metallurgical Engineering, the Moore School of Electrical Engineering, and the Towne School of Civil and Mechanical Engineering.

Penn's traditions span 228-year history Perhaps it all began when eager Ben Franklin ate his first soft pretzel. In his memoirs, the venerated Philadelphian speaks of the day he first set foot in Billy Penn's backyard when he walked up Market St. "with a roll under each arm (soft pretzels were considerably bigger in those days) and eating another." "Thus refreshed, I walked again up the street which by this time had many clean-dressed people in it, who were all walking the same way. I joined them and hereby was led into the great meeting of the Quaker near the market." And thus Ben Franklin described his activities of that fateful day of 1723 when he first espied those tweedy, immaculately conservative, sporting folk who 17 years later conspired to found the University. It was in 1740 that a band of prosperous Quakers under the inspiration of Ben Franklin founded a Charity School which was succeeded by an Academy in 1749 which, besides teaching academic subjects, provided a platform for itinerant preachers of the day, among whom was George Whitfield, a" founder of the University. The academy resulted from a pamphlet published in 1749 by Franklin, which concerned "Proposals Relating to the Education of Youth in Pennsylvania." The trustees received their first charter in 1753, and in 1755, by virtue of a second charter, the Academy became The College of Philadelphia, with the option of bestowing the usual academic and honorary degrees. The original Academy building was the largest structure in Philadelphia at the time, and was located in the neighborhood of what is now fourth and Arch Sts. The edifice was a three-story brick structure and was air-conditioned by opening and closing windows. In 1762 a dormitory building was added to the lot which had been purchased with future addition of buildings in mind. The dormitory was built because of the "inconvenience of the scholars (?) being boarded at such great distances, etc." NEW BUILDINGS In 1765 two new buildings were added to the cluster, one for classrooms and the other for the residence of the provost, William Smith. Later the provost was housed in a building which stands on bluffs overlooking the Schuylkill River. In the same year, a School of Medicine was added to the College and lectures were conducted in "Anatomical Hall," also called "Surgeon's Hall," which reposed on the east side of Fifth St. above Walnut. The
UNIVERSITY FOUNDER Benjamin Franklin (shown here with friend) sits serenely in front of College Hall.
North America, was founded by Dr. William Shippen and Dr. John Morgan. From the time of its creation it was patterned after the famous medical school of the University of Edinburgh and its coat of arms bears a Scotch thistle. The year 1779 marked the assimilation of the privileges and the charter by a new group called in its new charter "The Trustees of the University of the State of Pennsylvania." This move was highly significant, as it made it the first institution in the United States to be designated a university. In fact, it created the first university in North America, it being the first academic institution to establish a professional school as distinct from the College of Arts and Sciences. Twelve years later the school assumed its present name when it was reincorporated under a new charter as "The University of Pennsylvania," the charter having been granted jointly to the trustees of the Charity School, the Academy, and the College. The University moved to its present West Philadelphia site in 1872 when it was realized that the many other buildings around the city which had been used were inadequate to house an expanding program. In that year construction was begun on College Hall, Logan Hall, the Hare Laboratory (now the location of the Music Department) and the main section of the University Hospital. SEAL AND MOTTO The seal and the motto of the the University have undergone many changes through the years. The present seal is a combination of the coats of arms of William Penn, whose shield bore the three circles, and the shield of Thomas Pitt, whose design was of the books and dolphin. The motto, "Leges sine moribus vanae," was adopted from a quotation from Horace by Provost William Smith and appeared on library bookplates as early as 1764. The current motto reads now as it did originally and translates roughly, "laws without customs are in vain." The original color of the University was heraldic blue. No one is quite sure where the red came from. The first record of the actual use of the red and blue dates to 1867, when the graduating class adopted a badge of red and blue ribbons with the class motto and year inscribed on it. In every college and university there are traditional rivalries which are a necessity, whose origins have been spontaneous and whose perpetuation is voluntary. The bowl fight was a unique custom. No other college had anything like it The vendetta was held between the sophomore and freshman classes, the former providing a bowl, and the latter a bowl man. In the early days it was the custom of the secretary of the faculty to announce the results of the term's work, and awards were given to the honor men. To the third honor man went a great wooden spoon which supposedly lamented his plight. In the 1860's one of the spoon men was also presented with a bowl in which he was placed and carried about campus. BOWL FIGHT The fight really became most celebrated when the University moved to West Philly. It became the task of the freshmen to protect the bowl man, help him to escape, and break the bowl, while the sophomores strove to put the Continued on Page 23

Quakers shaped city By E. DIGBY BALTZELL Professor of Sociology Philadelphia, founded by that eccentric Quaker aristocrat William Penn in 1682, is today one of the most tolerant, gracious and civilized cities in this country. The spirit of tolerance which prevailed in Penn's city from the very beginning, along with the absence of an established church, drew settlers of diverse religious beliefs, or no faith at all, to the Quaker colony. Although one of the last colonies to be established in the New World, Philadelphia grew rapidly and prospered. During the first three decades of the eighteenth century, the Society of Friends gradually lost its numerical superiority in the city. The steady stream of Englishmen to Pennsylvania, for instance, was stepped up by a large wave of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians in the 1720's. Then a flood of Germans arrived during the 1730's. The Quakers' failure to proselytize, and their frequent expulsion of members for "marrying out of meeting" or for disunity, contributed to their failure to keep pace with the city's growth. By 1750, Philadelphia was a Quaker City in name only; less than one-fourth of its inhabitants were members of the Society of Friends. In spite of their loss of numerical superiority, however, wealthy. God-fearing Quakers formed the backbone of the city's merchant oligarchy throughout the first half of the eighteenth century. Friends who had come to the city to "do good" ended up by doing extremely well. When the Philadelphia Contributionship for the Insurance of Houses from Loss By Fire, America's oldest fire insurance company still doing business today, was founded in 1752, all the 12 original directors save three—the Deist Benjamin Franklin and two recently-read-out-of-meeting Episcopalians—were members of the Society of Friends. The early Quaker leadership has set its stamp on the cultural and civic life of Philadelphia down through the years even to the present day. The Quaker ethic of extreme egalitarianism — no need for a class of clergymen, refusal to take oaths nor bow to
secular authority, and a great tolerance for the other man's point of view, led to a pluralistic and secular, rather than theocratic, type of society from the beginning. Moreover, in addition to their being a minority in the city soon after its founding, the Quaker elite withdrew en masse from the Provincial Assembly of Pennsylvania in the 1750's because their rigid pacifist convictions would not allow them to vote support for the campaigns against the Indians at Fort Duquesne and other outposts in the western part of the Province. And from that time on, unlike the Puritan oligarchy in Massachusetts or the Cavalier aristocracy in Virginia, neither the Quakers nor other Philadelphia leaders have played prominent parts in governing the city, the state or the nation. The city has produced no families like the Adamses or Lodges of Massachusetts, the Roosevelts of New York, or the Lees of Virginia. Like the "inner light" rather than external authority which guides the Quaker conscience, real power in Philadelphia down through the years has tended to lay quietly hidden from public view in the silent vaults of banks and trust companies rather than in the more noisy and gregarious halls of City Hall or legislative assemblies. The Quaker ideal of democratic tolerance has influenced the political history of the city. Thus, in contrast to most other urban centers in the nation, Philadelphia has solid ethnic and racial voting blocks. While New York, Boston, Jersey City and Chicago, for instance, were firmly in the grip of Tammany, C u r 1 e y, Fitzgerald, Hague and Kelly machines, Philadelphia was dominated by a safely entrenched Republican machine until after World War 11. And this machine, politely guided and financed from behind the scenes by the proper bankers and businessmen of the city, left no need for a Democratic opposition because it tolerantly assimilated men and leaders from all the various minority groups. Thus there has never been a clearcut Irish-Catholic vote in the city (the first Catholic Mayor is Continued on Page 22
FRIDAY, AUGUST 25, 1967
Quakers shaped Philadelphia Continued from Page 21 now in office). Even the Negro population — large and of long standing due to Philadelphia being one of the first stops on the underground railway to the North which good Quakers played a major role in developing—has been less likely to vote as a block because of its being spread in isolated pockets throughout the city rather than being concentrated in a single Ghetto like Harlem in New York. Thus while the Curleys, Fitzgeralds and Kennedys cut their political teeth in leading a Democratic opposition to the Republican and Yankee oligarchy's conviction of their divine right to rule Boston, the more tolerant and democratic atmosphere in the City of Brotherly Love produced a more quiet and private world among the Irish-Catholic gentrysymbolized perhaps by the classic Cinderella, social success story which produced Princess Grace of Monaco. It was the need for educating its clerical elite which led the Massachusetts Bay Colony to found Harvard College which it has generally supported from colonial times (mostly by farmers) to the present. The very lack of the need for such an elite among the Quakers made the University of Pennsylvania the first secular institution of higher learning in America. As might have been expected, however, neither the Quakers nor the commercially minded elite in the city as a whole gave their financial or spiritual suport to the University to anywhere near the same extent as did Boston. If anything, they supported the Medical School at the University (the nation's oldest) which was quite in accord with the humanitarian, Quaker ideal. And perhaps it is no accident that the good Quaker merchant and iron-master, Joseph Wharton, should have founded the nation's first business school. Both the Quakers' tendency towards withdrawal from the "world" and their preference for small unostentatious meeting
houses are reflected today in the city's beautifjl suburbs and Fairmount park, the largest in the world which spreads out to the north and west of the city along the beautiful Schuylkill and Wissahickon valleys. And it is no accident that the three Quaker-founded institutions of higher learning are small and situated far from the maddening
crowds of the city in the well known suburbs of Haverford, Swarthmore and Bryn Mawr. GOLDEN AGE Philadelphia was of course the nation's largest and leading city during its Golden Age at the close of the eighteenth century, when the Founding Fathers walked the streets of Benjamin Franklin's adopted home. The capitol soon moved to Washington, however, and the city eventually lost its commercial superiority to New York after the Erie Canal was opened in the early part of the new century. As far as the nation's leadership was concerned then, Penn's town withdrew and settled back to a rather complacent yet charming private existence. To enrich their charming private life, the city's leading citizens founded a series mysterious of great distinction in the arts and sciences. Its Philadelphia Orchestra is of course second to none; The Academy of Fine Arts, founded in 1805, runs the oldest art school in the country, and from the days of Benjamin West, through Thomas Eakins to Andrew Wyeth, the Philadelphia area has continued to play a leading role in the nation's art history; The Museum of Fine Arts, beautifully situated at the point where Fairmount Park comes into center city, has one of the nation's finest painting collections as well as priceless artifacts from the Medieval, Oriental and Early American civilizations; The University Museum here houses one of the best American Dr. Baltzell is on a leave of absence for the 1967-68 academic year.
Indian collections and is now doing archeological and anthropological work all over the world, especially in the Middle East and Central America, all of which continually add to their fine "collections; in science the Franklin Institute (including the Fels Planetarium) is unsurpassed in its field; finally there are a host of other cultural and scholarly associations such as The American Philosophical Society, the Historical Society, The Commercial Museum, Rodin Museum, and the famous Zoological Gardens. PHILA. RENAISSANCE Though Philadelphia's cultural heritage is rich in ancient traditions by American standards the most exciting and important thing about Philadelphia today is the fact that it has witnessed a civic and cultural renaissance since the Second War which cannot go rivalled by any other major city in the nation. It all began back in the late 1940's when two Proper Philadelphia Lawyers, Richardson Dilworth and Joseph Sill Clark, led a reform movement within the Democratic Party which eventually threw the Republican rascals out of City Hall where they had been securely lodged for more than 80 years. Today the city has had over a decade of reform under mayors Clark and Dilworth which is now being carried on by Mayor James H. J. Tate who is up for reelection. The city has led the nation in health and welfare, city planning, slum clearance and redevelopment, and is now embarked in the complete rejuvenation of the Independence Square area of the city (referred to as "Society Hill") which probably includes more examples of eighteenth-century architecture and historical landmarks than any other part of the nation. AID INITIATED A definite benefactor and leading contributor to this renaissance has of course been the University of Pennsylvania, which under the inspired leadership of President Gaylord P. Harnwell, has prob-

In close cooperation with the city government and other neighboring institutions, such as the Drexel Institute of Technology, the whole area of West Philadelphia, a rapidly deteriorating slum as of the close of the Second War, is now being rejuvenated. Today Penn has a better faculty teaching far better students than
at any other time in its history. There is a spirit of experiment and reform in the air which the students share, in spite of their continual and healthy discontent and criticism. All in all, the student coming to Penn today will find a cultural tradition of real depth combined with a reform enthusiasm which cannot help but be exciting to those who find themselves committed and concerned.

But dorm, counselors, of course, are not the same as resident faculty members." Walmsley hailed the faculty members as "those who have a real personal commitment and interest in undergraduate education and are trying to improve rapport between faculty and students." About 80 frosh will participate in the program.

Another competition between the frosh and the sophs took the form of a hall rush and corner
fight. After the first meeting ot freshmen classes of the College, the sophomores awaited them in
the basement of College Hall. They rushed toward each other in close formation until, after much contention, one class broke through. The vanquished class then took refuge in a corner of an adjacent room and defied everyone to put them out. The battle raged for half an hour and was presided over by a so-called umpire. The custom was abandoned because of numbers, but a plaque in the basement of College Hall still commemorates the
These fights have since been replaced with symbolic presentations to the most popular members of the graduating class. The "Spoon Man" is still the most popular and still receives the hand-carved ebony,, silver-marked spoon, and in order followed the "Bowl Man," the "Cane Man" and the "Spade Man." To the last falls the duty of planting the class ivy at the base of a class stone in some University building. The traditional sophomore-freshman rivalry still prevails, although in recent years its form has modified to meet the demands of a changing student body. Several years ago the Undergraduate Council changed the form of the traditional dink, or "ink-spot," that was worn from the beginning of school until Dink Week by freshmen, although if the freshmen lost the competition they were forced to wear them

throwing things at this poor drunken soul, finally a battle broke out, and thus the story of the first Pennsylvania Rowbottom. As the first warm, study-impeding spring breezes whirl over the campus of Pennsylvania, they seem to transport a single word, "rowbottom," and when rowbottoms occur the police cannot be
indigenous to this century—the rowbottom. It is said that some years back one undergraduate would nightly enter the dormitory area highly inebriated and then would commence to shout to his roommate, named Rowbottom, for the key to their room. After this had occurred for some time, other dorm residents became annoyed, and one night they began
far behind. The Philadelphia police enter into the "fray" only after campus guards prove incapable (which is often) of quelling the mob. In these modern days the University has matured and has taken her place among the great universities of the world, her heritage not playing an insignificant role in this advancement.

University President Gaylord Harnwell is also a renowned nuclear physicist. J. Robert Schreiffer is a leading student of quantum mechanics. The physics department is, despite its recent advances, still in a process of growth and will soon be one of the country's best. POLITICAL SCIENCE
Like economics, political science is in the Wharton School. Despite this fact, it is the second most popular major for College students with about eighty or ninety per class. Professor Henry Abraham is a leading expert in constitutional law. Dr. Robert Strausz-Hupe is a popular though controversial teacher, and a leading expert on foreign policy. A. Z. Rubinstein and Robert Osborn are both noted scholars in the field of Communist politics and foreign policy. Pennsylvania is probably the leading center for research in animal behavior and the excellence of the psychology department reflects this fact. Drs. James Diggory and Justin Aronfreed are both experts in the fields of development and personality. Dr. Henry Gleitman is the dynamic chairman. Professor Morris Viteles is a leading student of group psychology, and Dr. Julius Wisnner is known for his work in abnormal psychology.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 25, 1967
Downhill since the Class of 57 (1757, that is)
Be it ever so decadent, there's no place like Penn The first student at the University of Pennsylvania was a man by the name of Francis Hopkinson. A member of the renowned class of 1757, Francis was one of those remarkable know-it-alls for which the 18th century was famous. He was an accomplished lawyer, botanist, musician, naval historian, politician and revolutionary (the Declaration of Independence bears his signature). In fact, in light of the accomplishments of this our first alumnus, one could say the Univer sity has gone steadily down hill ever since. Francis Hopkinson entered the College at the rather tender age of 16. He was a superior student and, at the time of his commencement, delivered a valedictory address. His sterling record seems somewhat tarnished, however, when it is remembered that his father, Thomas, was a trustee of the College at the time of Francis' admission. But, be that as it may, young Francis was duly ■ graduated in
1757 with the degree of Master of Arts. He eventually went on to get a degree in law. His classmates included another lawyer, a doctor and three ministers, none of whom was especially distinguished in his chosen field. NINE OUT OF FIFTEEN Perhaps more interesting than those who managed to graduate, were those who didn't. In many ways the University in 1757 was similar to the University of 1967, especially when one considers the fact that 15 young men entered the class of 1757, and nine did not graduate. One wonders if the Continental Army took their 2-S away. Among those who took permanent leaves of absence was a man named Joel Evans. The records give neither his birth date, death date, nor place of residence. His biography succinctly notes, ". . . was attainted a Tory during the Revo., and his property was confiscated." Those are the breaks, Joel, but a great tradition was established, later to be carried on by Earl Belle, another of our alumni
whose property was confiscated when he recently fled to Brazil to avoid prosecution on charges of fraud. Actually, with the exception of Joel and Francis; several of Pennsylvania's non - graduates have been more prominent than most of its regular alumni. Included among our non-graduates was Benjamin West, portrait painter; John Cadwalader, a brigadier general in the Revolutionary Army and one of Washington's chief aides; John Nielson, a member of the Continental Congress and President of Rutgers; John Muhlenburg, U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania; and William Tilgham, who, although he never graduated, was elected a trustee in 1802. Contrast this with those who received their degrees. A University historian speaking of our alumni and the Revolution notes, "when the great time of decision came, a disproportionate number took the Royalist side." It is noted that one U. of P. graduate distinguished himself as the British Consul-General to

MEDICAL SCHOOL, shown as it stood from 1765 to 1802, was Hrst in this countrv. It was located at what is now 5th and Walnut sts. in Society Hill. Philadelphia after independence was achieved. One John Sayre, a member of the class of 1765, spent the Revolution as a military chaplain — in the British army. TORY FACULTY Of course, it wasn't only our early students who distinguished themselves in the movement or independence. Jacob Duche, a professor of oratory, wrote George Washington a letter in 1777 advising him to surrender. It seems academic freedom was not as sacred in those days, for a few weeks after the British des e r t e d Philadelphia, Professor Duche "retired" from the faculty. Of the three trustees of the College who sat on the Continental Congress, one voted for independence, one abstained, and one voted against. William Smith, the first Provost, came out in favor of American rights, but was violently opposed to separation from Britain. When the British army occupied Philadelphia Provost Smith was pensioned and permitted to retire to his estate on the Schuylkill. After the Revolution, Smith was accused of having been a Tory, although the charge was never carried through. Because of the Royalist tinge of

so many trustees and faculty members, the Pennsylvania State Legislature in 1778 passed an act "For suspending the powers of the Trustees of College and Academy of Philadelphia" (as the University was known in those days). The University redeemed itself, however. Nicholas Biddle, a member of the class of 1799, was U.S. Minister to France and President of the first U.S. Bank But alas, he didn't graduate either. You know where he got his A.B.? That's right, Princeton.
Philadelphia has many top eateries Over the centuries Philadelphia has managed to earn for itself a reputation for having some of the world's finest—and worst—food. On the one hand there are Philadelphia specialties such as scrapple and pepper-pot soup (both of which seem to be on their way to a well-deserved oblivion), and on the other hand there are continental restaurants to rival those anywhere, at least in this country. Two of the most sumptuous of Philly's restaurants are those in the Barclay and Warwick Hotels in Rittenhouse Square. LOBSTER FAME To move down the list only slightly in quality (from perfect to merely superb) but a good deal lower in price, Shoyer's at 412 Arch St. ("Famous Since 1874") serves some of the city's best seafood and meat dinners. Excellent gourmet cooking can be had at the Three Threes, 333 South Smedley St. (between 16th and 17th). Prices are deceptively low in this made-over Philadelphia row house since everything is exceedingly a la carte, a good dinner will run around $4 to $6. BOOKBINDER'S Moving to Philadelphia's most famous restaurant, and next to Independence Hall probably its biggest tourist attractions, there are Bookbinders. The "Old Original" Bookbinder's, at 125 Walnut St., is the more outrageously expensive of the two, although the newer Bookbinder's, 215 S. 15th St., is hardly for tight budgets either. To confuse matters still further, the 15th St. emporium advertises itself as the only restaurant still owned by members of the original Bookbinder family. Neither one is universally loved — especially by Penn students — and differences of opinion are great, but both restaurants have built high reputations on their seafood. Best bet is to have your roommate's parents take you to either one.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 25, 1967
Music, art and theater abound Culture, entertainment or whatever you wish to call it abounds aplenty in the city of Philadelphia. Besides 12 first-run movie theatres within 15 blocks of campus, there are many other amusement activities which will fill your "work-free" evenings with untold pleasures. These include the internationally famous Philadelphia Orchestra, the Society Hill Playhouse, the Theatre of The Living Arts, the four legitimate theatres which
bring the best and worst of Broadway to Philadelphia. From its first concert on November 16, 1900, the Philadelphia Orchestra has been one of the world's leading musical institutions. Paul Henry Lang of the New York Herald Tribune has described it as "The Solid Gold Cadillac of Eastern Orchestras.'' an opinion echoed throughout the world. The orchestra was born 67
years ago when a group of music lovers determined that Philadelphia should have its own permanent symphony orchestra and asked the German musician, Fritz Scheel to become permanent conductor. Both Scheel and his successor, another German, Carl Pohlig, laid the firm foundations of a great orchestra, In its 13th season Leopold Stokowski was engaged and remained as a conductor until 1940. Eugene Ormandy, who this season celebrates his 30th year on the Philadelphia podium, became the orchestra's fourth conductor. Ormandy and Stokowski are credited with having built the Philadelphia Orchestra into a world renowned ensemble. Ormandy's unique contributions are his superb judgment in maintaining a balanced repertoire for the orchestra's audiences and a special gift for selecting distinguished first desk personnel
Museums dot city No education is complete without a grand tour of urban cultural resources. The Philadelphia Museum of Art (at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway) offers excellent temporary exhibitions as well as substantial permanent collections of medieval, Renaissance, and contemporary art. The Rodin Museum at 22nd and the Parkway houses originals and more than 200 recasts of the French sculptor's works, including "The Thinker" and "Gates of Hell." The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts maintains one of the best collections of Americans, including Peale, Stuart, Eakins and Homer. Franklin Institute and the Fels Planetarium (20th and the Parkway) may be a little brother to
Smithsonian, but its exhibits of the mechanical arts and applied science are fascinatingly complex and fun. The University Museum is renown for archeological discoveries and displays. The American, Babylonian, Egyptian, Far Eastern, and Mediterranean sections are bright, beautiful, and highly educational. The oldest institution of its kind in the United States, the Academy of Natural Sciences exhibits animal life-groups, minerals, and birds. To one side of the University, the Commercial Museum, 34th and Convention Ave., emphasizes Philadelphia commerce, while next door, Convention Hall greets trade shows, conventions, and University graduates at Commencement.
whose musicianship and personalities blend into the tradition of 'The Philadelphia Orchestra Sound." The orchestra enjoys a reputation as the world's most traveled symphonic organization. In 1949 the orchestra toured Great Britain, and in 1955 and 1958 all of Europe, including Russia, where its triumphs were certain proof that the United States had sent its finest. The venerable Academy of Music, home of the Philadelphia Orchestra, is the oldest auditorium in the country still in use in its original form for its original purpose. Standing across the street one can see the date clearly on the pediment, 1857. The Academy of Music (Broad and Locust Sts) presents opera, symphonic works, and the Philadelphia Orchestra, in season, under the direction of Eugene Ormandy. During summer months, the Orchestra performs a free open-air con Robin Hood Dell in Fairmount Park, a bi (he austere, gilded Academy. In the blocks around corner are the legitimate the.

This most famous of the many flowing pearls of wisdom from that noted kite-flyer, almanacpublisher, university-founder and man-about-town on two continents, Benjamin Franklin, might be one of the grossest understatements in American philosophical history. For it seems that our fair school's fine founder was as equally at home with the libertine belles, as with the Liberty Bell and was beloved—and lover—on an international basis. Some of the more private details of Franklin's early life reveal him to be a man of worldly skill and savior faire. Well, not exactly. It seems one of his miscellan-

The Daily Pennsylvanian still owns a mural from the old Franklin Society Building (torn down about eight years ago) showing Franklin doing a minuet.

eous lady friends in Philadelphia (the City of Brotherly Love) bore him an illegitimate son in 1730. when the budding philosopher was turning 24. Carl Van Doren, in biographing his life, writes, "Again as in London the chief impulse he could or did not regulate was sexual ... In his morning litany he could pray to be kept from lasciviousness, but when night came, lust might come with it ... He went to women hungrily, secretly, and briefly." But Franklin must have lacked "the knack" and soon found himself with a wee bit of a problem. He was engaged at the time to a young widow who was not sure her first husband was dead, and for her to claim the child as her own could have been labeled bigamy. So Franklin took the responsibility of the same, adopted the boy, named him William and cherished him as a legitimate child. Why, he cherished William so much he explained to him exactly what he went through in his 20's. "That hard-to-be governed passion of youth hurried me frequently into intrigues with low women that fell in my way," Ben wrote in his autobiography, "which were attended with some expense (A penny saved is a penny earned?) and great inconvenience, besides a continual risk to my health by a distemper which of all things I dreaded . . ." Well, "like father, like son," and the Franklin family tree had quite a few broken branches. William Franklin was no disappointment to his father, and some mysterious woman in London bore hwx an illegitimate son in 1760. The lad was named William Temple Franklin and the kindly grandfather incorporated him into the friendly household, too. Can't tell the players without a score card and you won't believe it, but in 1785, William Temple Franklin had a bastard son by Blanchette Caillot, the wife of a neighbor Passy, France. A whole line of bastards, and in three different countries, yet. Not bad. Well, it was to be expected. One of Ben Franklin's lesserpublicized writings is a letter dated June 25, 1745, instructing a friend why he should choose an old mistress, rather than a young one. Franklin said with dignity that marriage was the ideal solution "to diminish the violent natural inclinations," calling it "the most natural state of man."
"If you get a prudent, healthy wife, your industry in your profession, with her good economy, will be a fortune sufficient." But should one utimately decide upon a concubine, Ben outlined tne seven advantages of an old mistress: •When they cease to be handsome they study to be good; • They have more knowledge and are more conversationally inspirational; • Because there is no "Hazard of Children, which irregularly produced may be attended with much Inconvenience"; • Their greater experience reduces the possibility of suspicion and intrigue; • "Because the Sin is less. The debauching of a Virgin may be her Ruin"; •There is less compunction; you won't worry so much about what you've done to an old woman; • "They are so grateful!!" He also realized the true state of marriage, and foreshadowed Blondie and Dagwood by 200 years. He wrote, "Let us survey the morning dress of some women. Downstairs they come, pulling up their ungartered, dirty stockings; slipshod, with naked heels peeping out; no stays or other decent conveniency, but all flip-flop; a sort of clout thrown about the neck, without form of decency; a tumbled, discolored mob or nightcap, half on and half off, with the frowzy hair hanging in sweaty ringlets, staring like Medusa with her serpents; shrugging up her petticoats which are sweeping the ground and scarce tied on; hands unwashed, teeth furred, and eyes crusted." He published the Speech of Polly Baker, who, accused in court for having five illegitimate children, asked the court what crime was involved. She cited God's divine blessing and that her first seducer was the town's magistrate. She passionately noted the opportunity it gave to the town's "great and growing number of bachelors." She asked the court to then either compel these bachelors to marry or double the fine of fornication. She described the poverty of unmarried young women. Finally, for choosing to withstand the public shame, said "I ought, in my humble opinion, instead of a whipping to have a statue erected to my memory." The next day Polly Baker was married to one of the judges. They had fifteen children.

THE STUDENT POWER movement reached a zenith during the sitin at President HamwelPs College Hall office. Here, Harnwell answers questions from press and protesters during the sit-in.
Student power rallies Penn undergraduates By DENNIS WILEN There is no extracurricular activity on campus named the Student Power Club or the Student Power-Forum or the Student Power Society, but student power is an unrelenting concern of many undergraduates. Student power, as most define it, is the movement toward securing undergraduate participation in formulating and implementing the University policies that directly concern them. The closest Pennsylvania ever came to having student power become an organized group was the formation of the New University Party, a UPSG political caucus which started out as the Student Power Party. Originally the brain-child of a handful of New Leftists on campus, the original goal of the group was the complete abandonment of administration power over student affairs, including social regulations, faculty appointments, housing, student discipline, and other related issues.
As the party became the NUP, however, the die-hard radicals dropped out and their successors modified the party's principles. Gone were threats of direct actions (sit-ins, class boycotts, etc.) and a more reasonable attitude prevailed. The NUP's showing in the UPSG elections (see UPSG story on this page) showed that students were interested in involvement in decision making, and the foundation of the student power movement had been laid. The formation of STOP (STudents OPposed to Germ Warfare Research) as a direct action group really got the ball rolling. As the results of the sit-in cum sleep-in were announced, jubilant STOP leaders called for the formation of a group similar to STOP to press for reform in other areas of the University. But with finals scheduled for the next week, the students temporarily dropped their plans to Continued on Page 32
The rapidly-growing Community Involvement Council is the answer University students have offered to residents of off-campus slums. The 500 members of CIC, which recently merged with the like-minded Tutorial Board, spend their spare time tutoring slum children, helping in the emergency wards of local hospitals, advising youths facing action in the city's juvenile courts, and generally helping the University's West Philadelphia neighbors make their lives a little bit better. Over the summer, top leaders of CIC have been working on a manual for their tutors, under a grant from several foundations. The CIC is currently running 27 different projects, including one with juvenile delinquents who are students at the sDecial Catto School, close to the campus. WORK DIVIDED CIC co-chairman Bill Halperin notes that the group's work is divided into community projects and tutoring. "The mood of CIC is one of constant change," he said. "Without abandoning the traditional school-based tutorial, we are trying to define the role of a predominantly white service organization in developing indigenous organization in the black ghetto We're now studying the potential of cross-age and communitybased projects." He added that activities for the fall range from help for second grade problem readers and poorly motivated high school students to internships in the office of U.S. Senators and community voter education. The CIC was founded in 1965 with a grant from the Federal poverty program.
The future of student government
UPSG has a chance By WILLIAM BURCHILL The past academic year proved that the University of Pennsylvania Student Government (UPSG), created by last November's merger of the old Men's Student Government and Women's Student Government Association, can avoid the bitter and destructive politics of the era of three years ago. How much power government may acquire on behalf of the students however, is still an unknown quantity, and is likely to remain so at least until the UPSG elections next March. Behind the scenes negotiations between Vice-Provost for Student Affairs A. Leo Levin and government leaders last spring found the University Administration unyielding on the issues of government authority to implement student social regulations, original jurisdiction for the student judiciary, and student membership on Administration-faculty committees. ADMINISTRATION ACQUIESCENCE Begrudging progress in expanding UPSG authority was indicated by Administration acquiescence to Assembly Speaker James Rosenberg's demand that government receive ultimate control over student organization chartering and financing, functions which were previously subject to veto by the University's Committee on Student Affairs. Questionable commitment by government leaders to the concept of student power, however, casts doubt on further UPSG growth. President Alexius Conroy, who fought his way up through the ranks of the establishmentarian, largely fraternity-oriented Red and Blue Party, has promised to find effective means to protest administration inaction on student proposals, but there is no evidence that he will succeed. RED AND BLUE The UPSG assembly, which the Red and Blue forces control by a margin of 23 to 16, is unlikely for this reason to be far ahead of its Red and Blue leadership. The fact that Red and Blue holds all of the men's fraternity seats, and that the fledgling New University Party holds all but one of the men's independent seats, threatens to create a cleavage that would further limit the assembly's effectiveness. The failure of Conroy and Rosenberg to submit a test case for UPSG control over social regulations to the student judiciary is indicative of their reluctance to risk the Administration's wrath. The assembly had provided them with a golden opportunity for a showdown when it approved legislation permitting junior class women to live in non-University housing. This measure, sponsored by New University Party leader Tom-Knox, was shoved under the rug to facilitate the seemingly endless "smoke-filled room" negotiations over assembly power, which have failed to produce the victory UPSG so badly needs to revive its flagging prestige and to prove that it can represent students.

The DP: newsy, brash, outspoken The Daily Pennsylvanian grew two inches longer in page size during the past year, but the influence of the 83-year-old paper continued to grow by leaps and bounds. The DP was a leader in the successful fight to get chemicalbiological warfare research projects off campus; helped push the drive for more liberal social regulations; revealed the turmoil over tenure in the English Department and other areas of the University and, in a series of copyrighted articles, exposed illegal hazing practices by several campus fraternities. Every morning thousands of students pick up their free copy of the paper in major buildings throughout the campus to read the latest in campus, local, national and international news. They turn to "Campus Events" to find out what activities are planned; to the editorial page to see what the editors have to say about the state of the world; to the columnists and letter-writers for the "true story" of what's right and wrong with Pennsylvania. They flip to the sports page for
coverage of virtually every sport from football to junior-varsity women's swimming. STAFF OF 100 From its Sergeant Hall offices. The Pennsylvanian's staff of 100 undergraduates spends hours every day interviewing, writing, and photographing in order to produce a new edition of the most popular student publication at the University. With an annual budget of over $70,000, the paper's business staff provides students with valuable financial training that is equaled by few Wharton courses. As the editors sit in their offices thinking up the next day's "ear" (the small box at the upper right of the front page) staff members meet with U.S. Senators, travel to sports events throughout the Northeast, pitch pennies, review plays and movies, develop their photos, and write articles on everything from missing pigeons to fund-raising. FUN, TOO The men and women of the DP have fun while putting out the paper, too: There's the annual football game against WXPN, for example.
This year "Wixpenn" not only lost that battle but was vanquished by the DP in the "College Bowl" match between the two. There are also winter and spring banquets, with provocative speakers. The paper's editors continue the tradition of leadership that ranges from the paper's second editor, George Wharton Pepper to Robert A. Gross, 1965-66 News Editor and the outgoing General Secretary of the U.S. Student Press Association. Freshmen interested in working for The Daily Pennsylvanian will find many opportunities available. A brief heeling program at the start of the fall term provides basic training. Students interested in joining the DP staff should speak to the editors at the paper's booth on Activities Night or at the Publications Coffee Hour, or they can report to the offices (34th and Chestnut Sts.). In addition to its daily issues, the paper also publishes an annual course guide, a football program for home games; and a special Friday supplement, section two, which covers events and personalities in depth.
reforms in education While students across the country were talking about reforming their colleges, a group of students at Pennsylvania have been doing it for two years. SCUE, the Student Committee on Undergraduate Education, has been the primary force behind the academic reform movement at the University, which has already seen the adoption of the Pass/ Fail and Individualized major programs by the administration. Formed as a committee of the Men's Student Government in 1965, SCUE has since become one of the most active and prestigious student organizations on campus. MANY ACCOMPLISHMENTS Besides Pass/Fail and individual majors, SCUE has also run student-student advising sessions during pre-registration, successfully got the University to print and make syllabi available during pre-registration, and has had students seated on the curriculum committees of several undergraduate schools. All of these plans came out of the SCUE Report, a 42-page book published in the spring of 1966. Since hailed as a pioneer venture in student-initiated academic reform, the Report contained the results of an extensive survey of undergraduates and recommendaContinued on Page 32

Student power rallies Penn undergraduates By DENNIS WILEN There is no extracurricular activity on campus named the Student Power Club or the Student Power-Forum or the Student Power Society, but student power is an unrelenting concern of many undergraduates. Student power, as most define it, is the movement toward securing undergraduate participation in formulating and implementing the University policies that directly concern them. The closest Pennsylvania ever came to having student power become an organized group was the formation of the New University Party, a UPSG political caucus which started out as the Student Power Party. Originally the brain-child of a handful of New Leftists on campus, the original goal of the group was the complete abandonment of administration power over student affairs, including social regulations, faculty appointments, housing, student discipline, and other related issues.
As the party became the NUP, however, the die-hard radicals dropped out and their successors modified the party's principles. Gone were threats of direct actions (sit-ins, class boycotts, etc.) and a more reasonable attitude prevailed. The NUP's showing in the UPSG elections (see UPSG story on this page) showed that students were interested in involvement in decision making, and the foundation of the student power movement had been laid. The formation of STOP (STudents Opposed to Germ Warfare Research) as a direct action group really got the ball rolling. As the results of the sit-in cum sleep-in were announced, jubilant STOP leaders called for the formation of a group similar to STOP to press for reform in other areas of the University. But with finals scheduled for the next week, the students temporarily dropped their plans to Continued on Page 32
the like-minded Tutorial Board, spend their spare time tutoring slum children, helping in the emergency wards of local hospitals, advising youths facing action in the city's juvenile courts, and generally helping the University's West Philadelphia neighbors make their lives a little bit better. Over the summer, top leaders of CIC have been working on a manual for their tutors, under a grant from several foundations. The CIC is currently running 27 different projects, including one with juveniie delinquents who are students at the special Catto School, close to the campus. WORK DIVIDED CIC co-chairman Bill Halperin notes that the group's work is divided into community projects and tutoring. "The mood of CIC is one of constant change," he said. "Without abandoning the traditional school-based tutorial, we are trying to define the role of a predominantly white service organization in developing indigenous organization in the black ghetto We're now studying the potential of cross-age and communitybased projects." He added that activities for the fall range from help for second grade problem readers and poorly motivated high school students to internships in the office of U.S. Senators and community voter education. The CIC was founded in 1965 with a grant from the Federal poverty program.
The future of student government
UPSG has a chance By WILLIAM BURCHILL The past academic year proved that the University of Pennsylvania Student Government (UPSG), created by last November's merger of the old Men's Student Government and Women's Student Government Association, can avoid the bitter and destructive politics of the era of three years ago. How much power government may acquire on behalf of the students however, is still an unknown quantity, and is likely to remain so at least until the UPSG elections next March. Beh'.nd the scenes negotiations between Vice-Provost for Student Affairs A. Leo Levin and government leaders last spring found the University Administration unyielding on the issues of government authority to implement student social regulations, original jurisdiction for the student judiciary, and student membership on Administration-faculty committees. ADMINISTRATION ACQUIESCENCE Begrudging progress in expanding UPSG authority was indicated by Administration acquiescence to Assembly Speaker James Rosenberg's demand that government receive ultimate control over student organization chartering and financing, functions which were previously subject to veto by the University's Committee on Student Affairs. Questionable commitment by government leaders to the concept of student power, however, casts doubt on further UPSG growth. President Alexius Conroy, who fought his way up through the ranks of the establishmentarian, largely fraternity-oriented Red and Blue Party, has promised to find effective means to protest administration inaction on student proposals, but there is no evidence that he will succeed. RED AND BLUE The UPSG assembly, which the Red and Blue forces control by a margin of 23 to 16, is unlikely for this reason to be far ahead of its Red and Blue leadership. The fact that Red and Blue holds all of the men's fraternity seats, and that the fledgling New University Party holds all but one of tlie men's independent seats, threatens to create a cleavage that would further limit the assembly's effectiveness.

UPSG has a chance Continued from Page 29 Several recent governmental performances have produced valid cause for student skepticism about their representatives' effectiveness. Such skepticism reached its zenith in the fall of 1966, as the men's government, paralyzed by absenteeism and apathy, haggled over proposed drafts of a coed government constitution. On the positive side, however, this dubious debate resulted in a consitution that insured student rights and due process in disciplinary proceedings and that promised to make government more representative. The constitution met with overwhelming approval by the student body, and led to the downfall of men's president Milton "Chip" Block target of critics of government's "fat cat" image. Barbara Berger became the first coed to head an Ivy League student government, and improved governmental administration and communication, although failing to present creative new proposals to the assembly. NUP GAINS SEATS In February, however, the cynics had a second hey day, as the executive and assembly elections failed to develop a significant disparity of issues, or significant opposition to Red and Blue's executive candidates. Despite the disorganization of its early meetings in the obscurity of the Christian Association, the New University Party managed to win all but one of the men's independent- chairs, and three women's seats. Its platform stressed provision of opportunity for students to demonstrate opposition to the administration
through "non-violent, direct action techniques," and reduction of fraternity influence. Again last spring the new assembly delighted the cynics by apparently limiting freedom of the press through legislation pressing The Daily Pennsylvanian to increase its UPSG news coverage. Although its sponsors disclaimed any desire for editorial control, but only for increased coverage, the measure was rescinded at
DP's insistence, within a
week of its passage. DISAPPOINTED STUDENTS While justifying the wisdom of its newly won authority over organization chartering and financing by passage of strict guidelines for the two functions, the assembly disappointed a large segment of the student body
P E N N S Y L V A N I A N
again late in the semester when it failed either to condemn secret chemical and biological warfare research at the University. Aside from winning more jurisdiction away from the administration, UPSG's prime task now is to make its views on a great diversity of student issues felt in College Hall. Its failure in this respect could not be more clearly revealed than by the expected brushoff of its solution to the undergraduate housing problem. A fancy plan to provide four units of the educationally oriented house system, while allowing private developers to construct apartment units for remaining housing needs was introduced in the assembly with the apparent backing of the powers in the University's Development Office. The bill was passed unanimously, but there is doubt it will change one iota of the development plan which finally emerges.
Nothing about these plans has been heard recently, but UPSG's biggest challenge remains that of influencing the student body as a whole to repudiate such outcasts as these. The Class of 1971 will get an early opportunity to cast its vote when its assembly representatives are elected early in the fall.

Thus skepticism about UPSG, seen so clearly in the last year, is not yet out of fashion. Perhaps one group of students was right when they withdrew from the New University Party at its inception to set up a pressure group outside the government's purview to foist liberalization upon the Administration.

Honor societies long a part of Penn's tradition Honorary societies have long played a respected role at the University in the recognition of scholarship and leadership. Founded in 1900, the Sphinx Senior Society is the oldest society of its kind at the University. Prominent student leaders are elected in May of their junior year. Similar to Sphinx is the Friars Senior Society, founded one year after Sphinx. The women's counterpart ]wM Sphinx and Friars is Morta. Board, the women's senior honor society dedicated to the ideals of scholarship, service, and leadership. Most familiar of its many activities is the publication of the Mortar Board Datebook and the presentation of a tea for the women on the Dean's list. PHI BETA KAPPA Phi Beta Kappa is a national honor society for men and for women. Men in the arts and sciences are selected to membership on the basis of general scholarly excellence and achievement. The records of both juniors and seniors are reviewed and the top
seven percent of these women are eligible for this high honor. There are junior honor societies: Phi Kappa Beta Junior Society for the men and Sphinx and Key for the women. Numerous societies for each academic department are present. For pre-medical students: Alpha Epsilon Delta, for Wharton: Beta Gamma Sigma, Engineering: Eta Kappa Nu, pre-law: John Marshall.
Draft Continued from Page 9 supported continued educational deferment will have a two-pronged effect. By causing conditions to come a little closer to "normalcy," the "hawks" have performed a national service, as well as a service to their own point of view in helping to maintain a war concensus for the present. In so doing, these people run a large risk to the survival of their viewpoint, for they have badiy misjudged students, teachers, and other thinkers who protest, physically or intellectually, against the American military effort in Southeast Asia. Had the decision of the hardliners on the draft issue been different, however, and had the liberals failed to bolster their poor logic and weak stand in this case, then the national welfare, would have suffered yet another blow. Students should bear this in mind when they vote in next month's referendum. deciding whether educational pursuits are adversely affected by pressures from the military establishment, such as University reports of its academic rank lists for use as a basis for the draft.

Perm's 'Underground surfaces for some air There are many established performing arts groups on campus. Mask and Wig's hilarious allmale revues have been a Pennsylvania tradition for almost a century. Productions by the Pennsylvania Players have received good notices in Philadelphia's papers tor a long time, and their production this year of "The Mikado" drew raves from the critics. The workshops run by Penn Players have seen many interesting and exciting plays pound the boards, and this spring's "Hey, Charlie Man" was one ot the best. LOYAL FOLLOWING But one other group on campus — which has been at Penn only two short years — has gained a phenomenally loyal following of undergraduates, grad students, administration, and faculty. The Underground, as they call themselves, puts on a satirical revue every Friday night in the Catacombs, the avant garde coffee house in the basement of the Christian Association. Most of the shows (they change every week) have been written, produced, and directed by two College seniors, Jon Takiff and Lee Eisenberg. SRO CROWDS Mixing political satire with broad farce and campus commentary, their shows attract SRO crowds almost every weekend. The addition. of two shows to this year's New Student Week Schedule has made their success official. They are still not a recognized
extra curricular activity, however, and thus do not receive UPSG funds. The group runs itself financially with the proceeds of the Catacombs' admission charge (25 cents this past semester) and have managed to equip the 'Combs with badly needed lighting facilities. The group is busily at work preparing the show for the freshmen, whom Takiff and Eisenberg advise to come early on opening night. They expect that some of the regulars might beat the frosh to the seats.
SCUE Continued from Page 29 tions of methods to cure shortcomings in the Pennsylvania education. The ideas presented in the book were so numerous that a special faculty committee is considering them, and more will probably be adopted during the next year. Because the SCUE Report focussed mainly on liberal arts at Pennsylvania, a special Wharton SCUE started operation in March of this year. This group is planning another survey of Wharton students, which will probably be completed and published next spring. At first, SCUE members were surprised with the cooperation given them by the administration and the faculty, but soon realized that these groups were as interested in bettering Pennsylvania as they were.

One of the original sit-ins, a NUP member and representative to the UPSG, has called on the UPSG to utilize the power it has under its constitution to completely strip the deans' offices of any power over curfews, visiting hours, and other regulations. UPSG leaders rushed through a quick compromise and the matter is now under discussion with the deans and Vice-Provost A. Leo Levin. With the Red and Blue Party the controlling group in the UPSG Assembly, however, it is doubtful that the student power advocates will have their way. When school starts next month, though, things may be different. The Vietnam war protester who
told a rally in Houston Hall plaza that "this is the era of student power" may indeed turn out to be right.

Fraternity practices will be changed Several aspects of fraternity life at Pennsylvania have come under fire recently, and fraternity pledging practices here have received national attention. Following a Daily Pennsylvanian expose' of fraternity hazing practices this past spring, several measures have been taken to eliminate hazing as a regular fraternity procedure. Vice-Provost A. Leo Levin has recommended that the pledging period be shortened (it currently
lasts from January to April), that the number of hours pledges are required to be at their house be reduced, and that the Dean of Men's office begin an educational program for fraternity officers. ROBINSON IN CHARGE This program will be run by Acting Dean of Men Gerald Robinson, who is an alumnus of Sigma Phi Epsilon, a house with one of the best pledge programs on campus. Exact details of the reforms have not yet been an-
nounced, but are expected to be revealed after Robinson formally takes office on September 1. Fraternities form an important part of college life for a large percentage of male undergraduates at Pennsylvania. Although the incoming freshman is not able to take part actively in fraternity activities until the beginning of his second semester, during the fall he is able to visit the various houses, of which there are 34 at Pennsyl-
vania, and become acquainted with their individual brothers' activities and characteristics. By the end of t'.iis period it is expected that the freshman will have had ample opportunity to witness the advantages that fraternity and fraternity life offer to the University student. SOCIAL PROGRAM At the end of the informal rush period the freshman will have seen the social aspect of fraternal life — the advantage of a wellplanned social program which, during the fall semester, centers around the Saturday afternoon and evening parties on football weekends. Mixers, picnics, Sunday after-
noon parties, and formals, especially during the Christmas season are all a part of this phase of fraternity life. It is also expected that the freshman will become aware of the various projects undertaken by the individual fraternities and of the role played by fraternity men in University activities. Perhaps of primary significance to any student is the feeling of brotherhood which is inherent in a fraternity system. The relationships which are built between the brothers of an individual house are of a nature that continue long after graduation. Minimum scholastic requireContinued on Page 38

PanhellenicAssociation People to People widens Penn's world unites Penn sororities
The Panhellenic Association of the University is the local branch of the National Panhellenic Conference, bringing together the members of the 10 women's sororities on the campus through representatives sent to the Panhellenic Council. The Council, which meets regularly, decides rushing procedure and other questions which involve the sororities as a unit; sponsors intrafraternity and philanthropic activities; and promotes scholarship among its member groups. One of Panhel's major considerations is "rushing." In early September any coed interested in rushing will be given the opportunity to sign up for it. Panhel integrates other aspects
of fraternity activity. Socially, the Council sponsors faculty teas and fraternity get-togethers. Another of Panhel's activities includes the encouragement of good scholarship by awarding annual trophies to the house and pledge class with the highest academic averages. Pledge members from each house belong to the Junior Panhellenic Association. Two pledge representatives from each house are sent to the Junior Panhellenic Council. The organization serves to orient its members to the activities and procedure of Senior Panhel. Among its functions are social and philanthropic affairs; rushing revisions; and intrafraternity tutor service.

One of the newer organizations on campus, People to People, completed its third successful year in 1966-67. Founded to "fill a need on campus— the need for foreign and American students to have a mechanism which would help them know each other on a personal basis," the organization is affiliated with its national namesake founded more than a decade ago by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The schedule for this group included coffee hours, informal parties, one-to-one programs, folksings, discussion groups, and the
Host Student program. Membership in PTP is divided into a 50:50 ratio between American and foreign students. COFFEE HOURS Wednesday afternoons, People to People sponsors free international coffee hours in conjunction with the International Students Association. These free coffee hours feature food, drink, entertainment, and world-wide exhibits, and are held in the West Lounge of Houston Hall, the student union. Another recent innovation is the faculty-student get-togethers, through which prominent faculty
members invite small groups of PTP members to their homes for informal evenings. The weekly parties, set in an international atmosphere, offer a means for meeting people of different background on Friday evenings. This year, People to People is extending its program for orientation of incoming foreign students to the campus under the Host Student program, in which returning American and foreign students help arriving internationals find housing and meet the necessary registration requirements.

From the press box
A future not so cloudy Lawrence Krohn
The members of this year's freshman class displayed some guts in choosing to pledge their allegiance to Penn. After all, wasn't Penn the school with the 2-7 football record, 1-6 in the anemic Ivy League? And wasn't Penn the school with a swimming team that finished 1-14 in 1965-66 and a track team that chalked up an 0-12 mark the same year? Wasn't Penn the wealthy institution that could boast of neither a hockey team nor an adequate gymnasium? Yes, Penn suffered all of these dubious distinctions and more, yet the members of the Class of 1971 may be the first in quite a while not subjected to humiliating decision from high school classmates attending more athletically potent institutions. For the first time in many years, incoming freshmen can view the four years ahead with optimistic anticipation rather than cynicism. The Red and Blue athletic record will certainly get better before it gets worse; indeed, the 1966-67 winning percentage of .582 showed marked improvement over that of the three previous school years combined — a mere .525. Admittedly, the Quaker football mark is a blot on the school's record and a strong deterrant to any potential matriculant. Yet this season Penn features one of the most potent offensive punches in the Ivy- League — a distinction not often enjoyed by Penn gridders. With the aid of a strong, agile bevy of sophomores, the Quakers are almost certain to pay back Bucknell and Columbia for last season's losses. INEXPERIENCE — KEY BARRIER TO CAGER SUCCESS The Red and Blue Basketball squad was disappointed in 1966-67 while defending the Ivy crown, captured so splendidly the year before. But there was a reason for the team's 11-14 performance: A starting unit with three sophomores and a junior could hardly be expected to function with maximum effectiveness. Inexperience was ever-apparent in the play of rookie coach Dick Harter's charges, but this winter the Quakers will have every opportunity to improve upon last year's fourth place Ivy finish. With a full year of varsity ball now behind them, juniors Chuck Snell, Jeff Osowski, Steve Pearsall and Pete Andrews, all of whom showed ample promise, should be able to utilize their talents more effectively. And with Tom Northrop and Tom Mallison returning as seasoned veterans, the Quakers should possess sufficient manpower to challenge league giants Princeton and Columbia. Among the most exciting developments which bear watching by the Class of 1971 will be the progress of Penn's hockey, track, and swimming units, all now under the direction of young, inspirational coaches. In 1966-67 Jim Salfi's skaters enjoyed team status after many seasons as a mere club. This winter, the team matures to an Ivy League member, thus providing the University with big-time hockey, a long sought addition to Penn's schedule, for the first time in Quaker history. The icemen's 13-11 mark against able competition last year testifies to the team's caliber and to Salfi's talent as a skipper. Track coach Jim Tuppeny is being hailed as a genius after bringing the Quakers from an 0-12 mark to 6-6 in his initial campaign. Swim mentor George Breen's progress was slower, but nonetheless promising, as he brought his charges from a 1-14 log to 4-11 in his first year at the helm. FENCING MARK HARD TO IMPROVE UPON There do exist some sports in which Penn will be hard pressed to improve during the four year stay of this year's entering freshmen. In fencing, the Quakers, under Maestro Lajos Csiszar, finished 9-2, tied for first in the Ivy League, captured the Eastern title, and placed second in the national championships. The heavyweight crew, coached by veteran Joe Burk and frosh skipper Ted Nash, was virtually unbeatable (25-2) during the regular season, climaxing a brilliai.i campaign with an IRA championship. And Al Molloy continued to produce winning racquetmen, as his squash team finished 9-1 for second place in the Ivy League, while the tennis squad took eight of ten matches for third place in the Eastern League. Yes, the future is promising indeed and with the opening of the Gimbel Gymnasium this autumn, Penn's facilities will take on a luster sorely missed by Quaker sports enthusiasts of years past. However, much of the success so eagerly anticipated is dependent upon the athletic administration and it is here that Penn has undergone its most drastic change of the past 12 months. Fred Shabel has taken over as athletic director and his postures on student demands, alumni demands, recruiting, and the Ivy League as an athletic institution will go a long way toward determining Penn's future in sports. It is hoped here that Shabel's administration will prove inspired, enough so at least to precipitate the athletic revival expected here at Penn in the next four years.
STAR QUARTERBACK Bill Creeden Roes to the airways as attack in 38-28 victory over hapless Lehigh.
leads Quaker passing
Penn gridders to open campaign with strong offensive backfield Bob Odell's 1967 Quakers can boast of a dazzling offensive backfield this fall and in that foursome lies Penn's hope for improvement on last year's 2-7 record. Bill Creeden, Rick Owens, Cabot Knowlton and Jerry Santini comprise Penn's backfield quartet and with a year of starting experience behind them, these four are expected to carry the Quakers above their seventh-place Ivy League finish of one year ago. Creeden, Penn's 6'1", 187 pound quarterback, has developed brilliantly in his season and a half at the signal calling post. Last year as a junior, Creeden astounded Ivy grid watchers with his smooth, pinpoint passing game, and the local hero wound up the season with 121 completions in 265 attempts for 1842 yards and 11 touchdown tosses. SET 15 SCHOOL MARKS In 1966 alone, Creeden broke 15 Penn records, among them highest season total offense (1,932) yards) and most yards passing in one game (317 vs. Dartmouth). He led the Ivy League in passing and total offense, placing sixth nationally in the latter category. Unfortunately for the Red and Blue, Creeden injured his ankle early in the season and operated with reduced effectiveness in the two contests following his injury. Creeden's favorite target unquestionably was Owens, the fleet wingback and track star who took the IC4-A 440 crown this past spring. Alas, Owens proved far more brittle than his quarterback; a pulled hamstring muscle in the second game of the season sidelined the speedster for six contests. Nonetheless Owens did take in 28 passes for 439 yards, enough to set the Penn record for yards gained pass receiving in a career —990. KNOWLTON NUMBS Knowlton, a transfer from Florida State, was amply impressive in his debut last season. Knowlton scored four touchdowns in the opener against Lehigh and after four games he had scored 54 points—at that time best in the nation. Knowlton did not maintain his terrific pace throughout the season, but he was always Penn's primary ground threat. Despite the aggravation of a recurring rib injury, Knowlton managed to lead the Red and Blue in scoring with
nine touchdowns, chalking up 532 yards on the ground in doing so. Santini, despite his diminutive (5'8") stature, performed admirably as Penn's fullback last year, serving primarily as a blocker in Odell's I-formation. Penn's sparkling backfield will not provide its only offensive threat this fall. Split end George Burrell as a sophomore last season displayed both speed and a sure pair of hands, grabbing 27 passes for 270 aerial yards. On the side of the offensive line senior Denny Blake will be returning for the Quakers in the tight end slot. In between the two offensive ends, however, the Quakers will be hurting and it is here, hopefully, that last season's strong frosh squad can mitigate the effects of costly graduation losses. Although senior stalwart Ben Mortensen will return at guard.

the Quakers must find replacements for a quartet of experienced linemen. The capability of these replacements will probably prove the key to Penn's chances for offensive success. GRADUATION HITS DEFENSE On defense, the Red and Blue suffered far more heavily from graduation than on offense. Senior tackle Wes Scovanner, the Quaker captain, and end John Martinowich, another two-year veteran, are the only returnees among last year's consistent starters. ^ However returning linemen Bob Smith and Frank Pfeilmeier, who alternated at tackle last year, and middle guard Matt Matesic possess the much needed experience that coach Odell will be seeking. And Bob DeSantis returns at linebacker after a sparkling sophomore campaign as a frequent substitute. Penn's greatest loss was suffered in the defensive backfield
where all four starters and a standout sub departed via graduation. Unless blessed with an abundance of capable soph defenders, Odell could find himself severely handicapped by this defensive shortcoming. Fortunately sophomore prospects are far from bleak. On offense, quarterback Berny Zbrzeznj, halfback Tom Leslie, halfback Bob Monahan, and fullback Mark Warner are all able candidates for the Penn varsity; ends Dave Graham and Craig Cameron also have shown fine potential. In addition, Graham, Leslie, and Warner starred defensively for last season's frosh; these men, plus standouts John Brown, Glenn Eichman, and Dave Pottruck, will be examined closely by Odell before the momentous opener against Lehigh at Franklin Field on September 30. OPENED WITH TWO WINS It was last year's Lehigh game that gave Penn such high hopes at the start of the season. The Quakers, on Creeden's passing, came back from a 28-7 deficit, to whip the Engineers 38-28, with Knowlton scoring four TD's. A week later, the Red and Blue journeyed to Providence and proceded to shutout Brown brilliantly by a 20-0 margin. Even a 45-28 loss to husky Cornell did not dim enthusiasm on campus, but concurrent injuries to Creeden, Owens, and Knowlton subsequently proved overwhelming. On October 15, a relatively impotent Bucknell squad stunned the Quakers 28-21 and from there Penn's play deteriorated. Princeton downed the Quakers 30-13 on Homecoming Day, and a week later unbeaten Harvard trounced the Red and Blue 27-7 despite a fine effort by Creeden. It took a last minute field goal by Yale to topple Penn on November 5, but the loss proved especially costly when defensive end Jody Allen was injured and sidelined for the balance of the campaign. The demoralized Quakers then suffered an unexpected humiliation when Columbia ran through their porous defense for a 22-14 upset. The November 19 finale ended in a 40-21 Dartmouth victory and with a 1-6 league record, the Quakers could only patiently await the 1967 season and the opportunities for revenge that it would bring.

Powerhouse Penn soccer squad uconn's Shabei new to battle for Ivy League crown Penn athletic director
Perm's 1966 soccer team began its season last fall with high hopes for a winning year, but injuries to All-American co-captain Bobby Dea and first string All-Ivy wing Roger Lorberbaum virtually destroyed the Quaker offense. The campaign didn't live up to expectations, and without an effective scoring punch, the Quakers muddled through a mediocre season which found them winning and losing five bouts and tying two. The outlook for 1967 is much brighter. The Quakers lost only one starter, Dea, at Commencement and have 17 of 19 letter-winners returning. Lorberbaum, who finished second in the Ivy scoring race as a sophomore, will be back to give the booters experience on the line. Last season he not only again led the Quakers in scoring but also provided the winning margin three times through last-second goals against Haverford, Princeton, and Columbia. ISAACSON GOALIE Penn's lone first team All-Ivy representative last fall, goalie Ted Isaacson, will once more man the Quaker nets. Isaacson was the squad's MVP, and, in him, Penn
has one of the nation's best goal-
tenders. Defensive halfback Larry Miller was an offensive star last year, tallying four times. He earned second team All-Ivy honors and will captain the Red and Blue this season.
An added attraction this fall will be a transfer student from Pitt, Jeff Rosenglick, who sat out the 1966 campaign. A quick attack ace, Rosenglick was the equivalent of a high school soccer AllAmerican. Adding to the array of varsity

a contingent of 1966's freshmen who, in coach Scott's words, "gave every indication they'll be heard from." FROSH TEAM 'BEST Frosh coach Gerry Mayail called this team "The best I've coached since I've been here." After dropping a hotly disputed 4-3 decision to Lehigh in the opener, MayaH's yearlings jelled, reeling off seven straight wins. During the seven-game streak, a stingy frosh defense allowed but four goals while the offense was averaging four per game.
Fred A. Shabei was appointed Penn's new Director of Athletics on May 31 after two full months of searching by an 11-man selection committee. Dr. Harry Fields, assistant to the president for athletic affairs, announced the appointment of Shabei on a three-year contract for an undisclosed salary. Fields indicated that over 50 candidates were considered for the position; of the five interviewed, he said, Shabei was the unanimous choice. Penn's new athletic director comes from the University of Connecticut where he served as head basketball coach for four seasons and as assistant director of athletics for a year before the Penn appointment.

Rosenglick, and Vogt on the varsity line, Penn's offense should regain its potency. And the remainder of the squad, notably the halfbacks, should also be strengthened by the addition of Vogt's teammates to the lineup. It can be expected that Penn will join Brown and Harvard as the top teams in the Ancient Eight, but coach Scott knows where he stands. "I've been here too long." he commented, "to say that we're in."

When asked why a non-Penn alumnus was chosen, Fields said the committee was seeking the best man for the job and that Shabei was considered "superior." Shabei indicated that he would formulate and direct athletic policy, explaining that his responsibilities included "dealing with people, programs, salaries, transportation, scheduling." In reference to the issues surrounding the dismissal of former rthletic director Jerry Ford, Shabei voiced strong objection to alumni tampering with athletic funds and he pledged support to Ivy League principles. Fields termed Shabei a "young, vibrant individual" and stressed that the Shabei appointment was part of a plan to develop a "young program" at Penn. Shabel's official duties commenced on July 1.

Coach leads harriers to successful season This past season, the varsity and freshman cross country teams made the debut of one of the new Quaker coaches very successful. Penn's new cross country and track mentor, Jim Tuppeny, placing a heavy emphasis on strategy and hard training, coached his varsity to an 8-3 record, especially outstanding in light of the previous year's paltry 3-6 showing. The varsity, dominated by sophomores, and the freshmen, undefeated against 10 foes, weekly averaged well over 100 miles of running, and finished strong. Led by captain Rick Pokorny, Bill Kelso, Bill Caldwell, Jerry Williams, Earl Andrews, Jut Lavin, and Joe DeMaio, the varsity notched several upsets, including surprise conquests of Rutgers and Temple, the reigning Metropolitan and IC4A college division champions, respectively. KELSO SETS MARK Kelso finished either first or second in all eight Quaker wins, and in the IC4A championships he not only led the Penn harriers to the finish but also established a course record for Quaker runners, breaking a mark set by Bill
Thompson, often called "the best cross country runner in Penn history." Most noteworthy of the freshman wins was a narrow upset of the heavily-favored, unbeaten Princeton Tigers.
In the 3-mile IC4A freshman run, the Red and Blue surprised everyone, even coach Tuppeny,
by finishing third out of 61 schools, behind only Holy Cross and Georgetown. Among th IC4A victims were all the Ivy yearlings, including the revenge-seeking Tigers, and the perenially powerful Villanova Cubs, who were described by assistant coach Irv Mondshine as "the best team money can buy." Freshman Dave Ladanye, who swept to victory in the Columbia Invitational individual competition, helped pave the way for the strong Quaker IC4A finish by placing eleventh out of 300 entrants. With Ladanye, Bob Acri, and others of the outstanding frosh harriers joining an already strong varsity which lost but one man at graduation, coach Tuppeny's second year could well be better than his first.

Penn, however, lost only one starter, big center Frank Burgess, while two seniors and four juniors, all of whom have already shown marked improvement with experience, head the returnees. NORTHRUP IS PLAYMAKER Captain Tom Northrup, the team's primary court general and playmaker, heads the fine bevy of guards that will take to the Palestra hardwood in December. Northrup averaged 12.1 points per game last season, scoring on long jump shots as well as driving layups. Penn's other two guards, juniors Steve Pearsall and Pete Andrews, at times started alongside Northrup during the season. Pearsall, generally recognized as the team's scrappiest player, averaged 8.4 per game, displaying a fine touch from the outside and outstanding leadership on the court. Andrews averaged 7.0 and scored most frequently on driving, twisting layups. The Quakers boast three returning forwards, all of whom were quite effective in spots. Senior Tom Mallison, at 6'10". averaged 9.2 points per game with his unique push shot and also pulled down 7.1 rebounds a game, second only to Burgess. (Continued on Page 41)

Squashmen, with 9-1 record, cop a tie for Eastern racquet title
IT'S TOUCHE — as Eastern Champion Quaker swordsmen strike first once more in Hutchinson Gymnasium.
Fencers take Eastern Crown, garner tie in Ivy League competition Penn's fencing team proved unpredictable last season, but the
pardoned in full when they swept to victory in the Eastern Championships for the first time in the tourney's 70-year history. Since the winner of the Easterns is generally recognized as the best team in the nation, the Quakers enjoyed that noble status despite two losses during the regular campaign. Penn opened the season with high hopes and rightfully so, for the Quakers boasted six experienced seniors in the starting lineup plus the finest collegiate saberman in the country, junior Todd Makler. However Penn was soundly drubbed, 17-10, in the opener, by defending Eastern champion NYU and much of the preseason enthusiasm was snuffed by January. TAKE NINE STRAIGHT After this initial setback,
Lightweight gridders end loss streak
Two fourth quarters ID's enabled Penn's lightweight football team to edge Princeton, 14-10, for the first time since 1961 and to crack a victory drout that had extended over 3 seasons. A 20-6 victory over Columbia in the final battle of the year helped move the Quakers out of the cellar that they occupied in 1965 and into fifth place with a respectable 2-4 log in the tough, seven-team EIFL. If coach Mike Mayock, who directed the upswing in the fortunes of the 150-pounders, can find an adequate replacement for senior quarterback Tom Kennedy, the squad will most likely continue its march to higher finishes. Seven offensive starters, including standout receiver Bill Uhlhorn, who grabbed 52- and 38-yard aerials for TDs against the Lions, and halfback Jim Samuels, who carried the pigskin into the endzone gainst both the Lions and Tigers, will be back. DEFENSE RETURNS And several members of Penn's tight pass defense, which yielded Columbia but 29 yards via the airways, will once more don Penn uniforms. The squad, however, will have to improve considerably if it is to be a contender. It needs a new placekicker and lacks the overwhelming depth of opponents Army and Navy. Coach Mayock attributes much
of the previous lack of success of Penn's lightweight gridmen to the fact that freshmen aren't aware of the frosh 150 lb. football program. Although there is no formal yearling lightweight squad, interested freshmen are welcomed on the frosh "B" football team.
though, the Quakers could do no wrong, enjoying nine consecutive wins including Ivy League victories over Princeton, Harvard, Yale, and Columbia. The Red and Blue muffed their chance for sole possession of the Ivy crown, however, by losing 15-12 to a mediocre Cornell squad in the last contest of the campaign. Penn thus finished 9-2 overall, and tied with Columbia for the League title at 4-1. The Cornell loss set the stage for the Quakers' stunning victory at the Easterns, where they upset heavily favored NYU, the team that had beaten them earlier in the year. This season, unfortunately, the six seniors will be gone and Maestro Lajos Csiszar may be hard pressed to replace their talents. Leading returnee is Todd Makler, the defending national saber champ, who lost only one bout during the regular season. With him on the saber squad will be junior Norm Braslow. Co-captain Dave Tong and junior Dennis Law head the foil contingent, while juniors Jim Wetzler and Frank McComb lead the epeemen. Last year's freshman fencers finished a respectable 5-2 and Al Cherry and Keith Smith are two of the season's most promising soph prospects.
"This year's vpar'i squad enuaH will will be hp hard harrl _^_^^^___^__^^_____^___^^^_^^_^_ .^______ "This pressed to match the fine record of the last two years," stated Quaker squash coach Al Molloy last November. And the reasons seemed obvious. Led by National Intercollegiate Champion Howard Coonley and the fifth best collegian, Maurice Heckscher, Molloy's 1965-66 charges had stormed to an 8-2 season and tied with Harvard for a slice of the Ancient Eight squash crown. Both standouts, however, had used up their eligibility. In 1966-67 Molloy didn't find replacements for Coonley and Heckscher; he found something better — a team of stars. END UP 9-1 Depth brought the Quaker racquetmen to a surprising 9-1 season, losing only to Harvard. "If someone had told me I was going to be 9-1," exclaimed Molloy, "I wouldn't have believed it." After edging Penn, 5-4, Harvard was upset, 5-4, by Navy, thus setting the stage for a PennNavy meeting to decide the outcome of the Eastern Intercollegiate Squash League. In classic style, the all-important battle came down to the wire. Penn and the Midshipmen split the first eight matches, and, in the ninth, Quaker tennis captain RICHIE COHEN, top returning racquetman for Al Malloy's Eastern Clay Hamlin hung on for an 18-17 Championship squashmen, lunges to return a tennis serve. victory in the fifth and final Coach Molloy will be counting loss, to Princeton, snapped a 27game. heavily on Cohen, a junior who match freshman win skein.

This past winter, the varsity and freshman mermen earned the right to truthfully be called a team. It took a long time. The man primarily responsible for this minor miracle is George Breen, the new coach who has completely changed the outlook of Penn swimming in only one short year. Breen's varsity swimmers won four meets (they won only one the previous year) and came very close to victory in two others. Included in the list of victims were West Chester, LaSalle, Lehigh and Brown. None are notable swimming powers, but LaSalle was the de-

fending MAC champion, and the victory over Brown was the first in two years of Ivy League competion. CORNELL—ALMOST The near-victories came against Ivy rivnls Cornell and Columbia, the Cornell mermen downed the Quakers by a mere three points when the Big Red 440 yard freestyle relay team won in the final event. The Columbia score was not as close but the action was just as dramatic. Swimming in the archaic Lion pool, the Red and Blue needed victories in the last four races, but another loss in the 400-yard freestyle dashed Penn hopes. At the beginning of the season, Breen stated he would be satisfied if his swimmers could break every existing Penn record. Pete Borchardt, captain Kurt Kendis, Fred Nahas, Conrad Reddick, Steve Morrow, Steve Shulman, Willie Porterfield, Reed Ulin, and Chuck Wigo almost accomplished that. Only three records remain unbroken: The 100 and 200-yd. freestyle, which were set by Penn swimming great Lou Kozloff, and the 400-yd. freestyle relay. PENN IS TWELFTH The season was climaxed at the Eastern Seaboard Championships. Led by Wigo, Reddick, and Kendis, the Quaker mermen finished twelfth of the 24 schools. Columbia and Lafayette, both of whom defeated Penn in dual meets, fin(Continued on Page 43)

ALL-AMERICAN goalie Torney Smith traps another one for the Penn hockey squad, which posted a 13-11 record in their first vear as a varsity team.
Icemen slide through first season with 13-11, record-shattering log Ice hockey at Pennsylvania is undergoing a transformation. The Quaker hockey team is emerging from its obscure origin as an informal fraternity-oriented club to join the toughest hockey loop in the East, the Ivy Hockey League, this year. Although hockey has been played at Penn for several years, the sport attained varsity status only last season. Unfortunately, with the granting of varsity status came the restriction that freshmen can not play with upperclassmen. Subsequently, Penn's new-born varsity hockey squad gained not one additional player last year after losing three top stick-handlers at 1966 graduation. Despite the manpower shortage and numerous other obstacles, young coach Jim Salfi led his skaters to a winning season which saw many Penn hockey records shattered.
The Red and Blue garnered a winning season with a 13-11 record which featured a victory over top Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference competitor Massachusetts. SMITH IS GOALIE One of the hockey team's greatest assets and an indispensable part of almost every Quaker win was goalie Torney Smith. A high school Ail-American, Smith amassed over 70 saves last season and was voted second string All-Eastern goalie—an almost unheard-of distinction as allleague players are rarely selected from new league teams. Canadian Danny Pierce has led the scoring last year for the second year in a row. Last year Pierce accumulated a record 26 assists and 20 goals to give him a record 46 points for the season. The other Canadian on last year's squad was Glen Foreman,
Inexperience won't hurt Quaker wrestlers
Last season the Penn grapplers compiled a mediocre 4-5-1 record, but the campaign was far from mediocre. The varsity in the last half of the season won three of the last five matches and, surprisingly, tied powerful Temple. Two of the five losses were by slim, 2-point margins, and two others were determined in the final bout. With only two seniors on the squad, inexperience hurt the 196667 Quakers. Inexperience will not hurt the 1967-68 Quakers. Head wrestling coach Don Frey now has eight returning lettermen, six of whom will be juniors. The pair of seniors, who will co-captain the squad, will be coming off distinguished years. Joe Geeb, wrestling at the 167 slot was the squad's ace, dropping but one of ten dual meet decisions, and Richie Levitt, at 145 pounds, capped his year with a third-place finish in the Eastern Intercollegiates. FROSH UNBEATEN If this doesn't seem promising enough, Frey will also inherit the products of John Sanders' unbeaten freshman squad that piled up five victories against one tie. Frey will get help in the heavyweights from standout freshmen Dave Pottruck, who should fill in at 191 for the departed Tommy Traud, and Rusty Simon, should give returning heavyweight Jim O'Connell, the improving junior, a real battle for a starting spot. With the 191 spot filled, Dave
Labosky, one of last season's top sophomores, should move into the 177 slot which he considers home. Geeb will most likely hold down the 167 slot once more. The rest of the lineup will probably be shaken up. The middle divisions gave Frey many a heartache last year, and he will be looking to bolster the team in this area. LEVITT A SURPRISE Levitt will probably hold down a starting position at 145 or 152. He surprised everyone last season by beating Lehigh's Mark Kishel at 145 to capture third place in the East. Frey also has returning lettermen Jed Olmstead, and Tom Haney. Both these boys are now juniors with a year of varsity experience under their belts. Other contenders for berths in the middle divisions are junior Vic Antes, who battled back and forth with last season's captain Mike Schiffman for the 137 spot, and sophs Neil Sofman, Bob Sokoloff and Gale Smith. The lightweight positions should also be up for grabs. Last year Mike Hannon and Bill Pinkerton held the starting slots along with Schiffman, but sophs Mike Atwell and Ron White showed real promise in freshman action. It all adds up to a bright picture for Frey as the season nears. With a little luck, the blend of youth and experience should provide Penn with one of its top wrestling squads in many years and a squad that should be in contention for an Ivy crown.
whose bruising checks and adept defensive skating made him the team's defensive mainstay. Forman was written into the record book last season for a rather dubious distinction: The husky defenseman sat in the penalty box for a record 106 minutes. In all. only two players graduated. Thus, the bulk of last year's varsity squad and last year's highly regarded frosh team will combine so that, as coach Salfi said, "this year, for the first time, a Penn hockey team will have depth." DEPEND ON CLASS OF '71 Peering into the future, Salfi offered these sentiments. "Our whole hockey program depends on next year's freshmen. "I've got a group of boys interested in this school that could form the best frosh team in the East. If that team materializes, we may well be in the Ivy League race in two years." Looking forward to next seaso.i coach Salfi had these predictions: "Next year we'll have a better all-round team. With 12 Ivy League contests scheduled
there has to be at least one upset. In fact, we might surprise quite a few teams."
Basketball (Continued from Page 39) Juniors Chuck Snell and Jeff Osowski, with less experience than Mallison, displayed some fine jump shooting from the outside during the campaign. Snell led the Quakers with a 12.1 average and sparkled with a brilliant 25 - point performance against powerhouse Cornell. Osowski displayed a wide variety of shots, averaging 8.1 and scoring 28 points against Brown. SOPH CAN HELP With Burgess gone, the Red and Blue will be wanting in the center slot and it is here that the 12-10 freshman squad can supplement Penn's returnees. Carl Robbins, the frosh center, averaged 12.5 and improved immensely over the season, scoring a high of 36 points against the Temple yearlings. With increasing experience, Robbins should prove a more than adequate replacement for Burgess. Among the other freshmen, Jim Murphy, a nimble guard and court general, was outstanding with an 18.7 scoring average and a dazzling outside shot. Forwards Ken Cohen and Joe Moore, and guard Scott Beeten, are, along with Robbins and Murphy, the most promising varsity prospects.
FRIDAY. AUGUST 25, 1967
Quaker crews row to national crowns
For the first time since 1900, the Pennsylvania varsity heavyweight oarsmen stroked their way to the winner's circle of the Intercollegiate Rowing Association regatta, and only Wisconsin—the defending champion — finished within 15 seconds of them. Climaxing the afternoon of racing on Syracuse's Lake Onandaga, the Quaker eight pulled away from the 16-team field at the mile mark and kept adding to their lead throughout the remainder of the race. Wisconsin finished two-and-ahalf lengths behind the powerful Penn shell, followed by Cornell, Princeton, and Navy. Western sprint champ UCLA, considered a top challenger, wound up ninth, 34 seconds in the wake of the Red and Blue champions. Earlier in the day, in the freshman event, Penn's eight had waited until a half mile from the finish to make their move, then overtook Rutgers with a stretch drive that had the Quaker yearlings 3/4 lengths ahead at the wire. Only the heavily-favored Penn JV's failed to annex a national collegiate crown. Although they were in the lead by 2>/2 lengths when the race was two-thirds over, a sudden downpour erupted, temporarily halting their forward progress. The Navy JV's thrice beaten previously by the Quakers, veered to the sheltered inside lane when the rains broke, were unaffected by the wind and waves, and edged Penn for first-place honors, thus destroying chances for an incredible sweep of all three national titles by Joe Burk's crews. The pair of first place finishes by varsity and freshmen, however, coupled with the JV second, was sufficient to give Penn possession, for the second consecutive year, of the Ten Eyck Trophy, symbolic of intercollegiate team supremacy. Until freshman coach Ted Nash's sweepswingers steamed to an IRA championship the year before, it had been 42 winless years for Quaker eights in IRA competition.
Now, after those long years of near misses and close calls, Penn is an acknowledged king of the collegiate rowing world. But, don't think for a moment that the racing world is completely conquered. Two of the collegiate racing powers — as they always do — did not enter the IRA regatta; Harvard and Yale were busy on that June afternoon with their traditional race, and Harvard's crew is every bit as outstanding as Penn's. The Crimson haven't lost a race since the 1964 Olympic Trials. They downed the Quakers three times this year — in a triangular meet, in the Eastern Sprints, and in the Pan American Games Trials —but none of the races were at the 3-mile distance of the IRA, a distance Penn seems to prefer. Next season will be the time, to decide who is number one. Since it is an Olympic year, both crews will be training for the same distance^—the 2,000 meter sprint—in hopes of representing America on a Mexican trip. Both the Penn and Harvard eights will return for the 1968 campaign almost intact; Penn loses but two starters. The shells will be further strengthened by the JV and freshmen rowers. Both freshmen crews were outstanding—Harvard's didn't lose a race—but Penn's JV's held a decided edge. The JVs enjoyed the only undefeated record in regular season competition for the Red and Blue, and they were the lone Penn victor in the Eastern sprints. Penn's 1966 national champion freshmen comprised virtually the entire shell. With six starters returning and the likes of the JV's and freshmen. Coach Burk has the material for an outstanding year. It is a cinch Coaches Burk and Nash will have the oarsmen putting in the long hours of dedication and perserverence needed to keep Penn on top and to propel Penn to greater heights.
15 lettermen return as baseballers rebuild
A QUICK PUT OUT for new diamond captain Pete Wisniewski as he traps Navy's Bill Sorenson. Bob Murray's first full season as varsity baseball coach proved a very disappointing and frustrating one for both him and his players. Murray, who took over the coaching position just before the first game of the previous season, did an admirable job in leading his team to a 9-9 record and had high hopes for improvement. However, bad weather severely restricted outside practices, and the Quaker nine never seeming to recover from this early handicap, won only a handful of its 16 games. One major problem that faced Murray was the lack of depth on the pitching staff. In addition, an average of 3 to 4 errors were committed every game and 8 to 9 walks issued by Penn hurlers. The season, however, had its bright spots. In a winning effort against Yale, fireballer Ed Bickel (1 98 ERA) allowed but four hits
in 8 1/3 innings and was supported by a flawless defense. An 8-2 victory over Rutgers was also marked by fine Penn pitching, as starter Mark Schoenfeld (2.04 ERA) and reliever Bickel each allowed but a lone single. And, in the season's finale, Schoenfeld shut out Columbia, 30, on a 1-hitter. Although the team batting average was a sickly .168, leading hitters Miles Sibell and captain Pete Wisniewski will be among the 15 (of 17) returning lettermen. With two fine freshman hurlers, Scott Beeten and Vic Catalano, joining the varsity, Penn's mound staff will now be deep enough to allow the hurlers proper rest. In the coming year, with a little cooperation from the weather and some top freshman prospects, Murray's Quaker nine can make a much more respectable showing.
HEAVYWEIGHT CREW practice-rows on Schuylkill River. The crew later won the IRA Regatta.
And the lightweights
Frosh win Eastern Sprints In 1965, the Pennsylvania varsity lightweight crew failed to win a race. In 1967, just two years later, coach Fred Leonard's varsity oarsmen capped as swift a rebuilding program as ever seen in collegiate rowing, finishing a solid second to Cornell's Henley championship shell in the Eastern Sprint Rowing Championships. Kindling an equal amount of pride in coach Leonard's oncefrustrated heart were the finals of the junior varsity and freshman races over the Lake Quinsagamond course at Worcester, Mass. The Penn JV's, known for their closing sprints, came from fourth place to second in the final ten strokes of the 2000meter race, edging MIT and Cornell in a blanket finish. FIRST IN HISTORY The Quaker freshmen, having to come from behind for the first time in their careers, prevailed by three-quarters of a length over Cornell to become the first lightweight eight in Pennsylvania 150pound history to finish the regular season undefeated and go on to win in the Eastern Sprints. The first-place finish and two seconds added up to 34 points for the Quakers, one more than Cornell, and the Jope Cup, symbolic of national lightweight team supremacy, was Pennsylvania's for the first time. Penn's rise to the top of 150-
pound rowing, however, is by no means over. "We're still rebuilding," comments coach Leonard, who now has a national title in mind for his varsity eight. Having outstanding freshman and JV boats is fine, but having the finest varsity in America is better. PERHAPS A TITLE And, if the rate of improvement of Leonard's shells is any indication, the varsity title may be soon in coming. For example, when the present seniors were freshmen, Penn lost to Cornell by 27 seconds, a margin cut to four this year. Only two oarsmen have graduated from the Quaker varsity first boat, neither of whom occupied key seats, and Leonard is sure to have adequate replacements among the JV's or the national champion freshmen, who were coached by Jack Barclay. The freshmen, who ended a 12year domination of the Red and Blue crew by the Cornell yearlings during the regular season, will contribute much-needed size to the varsity lineup. The stern trio of Bill Radcliffe, Scott Sollers, and John Brady were especially strong, and may even dislodge some of the present varsity starters. "We feel we can go faster next year," remarked Leonard. With six varsity starters, a tough JV, and national champion freshman boat back, Penn indeed looks to be faster.
11 varsity stickmen graduate and coach has rebuilding problems Graduation strips eleven members from the 36-man varsity lacrosse squad, and although veteran head coach Avery Blake looks for improvement on the 10-4 record (good for a share of third among the Ivies) the stickmen posted, he will not be without some rebuilding headaches. Co-captains Jim Patton and Bill Laurence both first team All-Ivy selections, head the list of departing cogs in Blake's machine. Along with them went three starting midfielders plus virtually the entire defensive unit. The most important loss, however, is goaltender Howdy Coale, whose achievements earned him third team All-American recognition. Coale, along with the scoring of Patton and junior Irwin Klein, who was named to the AllIvy second team, went a long way toward establishing the 10-4 slate. Although Blake faces these losses, he will have a fine group of young players returning, plus
the products of Henry Ford's 71-1 freshman squad. STRONG ATTACK The attack will be strong, with Klein, Dick Bennett, and Tom Gasparini back. Soph Ted Campbell, who scored 22 goals for the frosh in nine contests, will also be vying for a starting nod. Blake spent a lot of time shuffling his midfields last year, and he now has two midfields returning intact. Charlie Dewey, Ben Bessette, and Mark Boeing lead the returnees, which will be boosted by the likes of Jim Phillips, who tallied ten times for the yearlings. Blake's 1968 headaches will probably be reserved for the defense which was the weakest link of the past season. His best defenders have departed, and he will probably have to rely heavily on sophomores. Blake may have been blessed, however, with a more than adequate replacement for his depart-
ed All-American guardian of the nets. Little Mike Cordish, who saved 72 potential scores while allowing but ten to reach the freshman nets, looms as the heir apparent to the now vacated post. Help may also come in the form of the sophomore defensemen who as freshmen kept their opponents almost completely at bay, allowing only an average of nine shots per game to be fired at netminder Cordish. Leading the way are Paul Harvey and footballers John Linehan and Warren McManus. DEFENSIVE PLAY KEY The performance of the defensive unit could well be the key to success for Blake, who uses an unorthodox zone defense which he developed and has been using for years. If Blake can rebuild and tighten this unit and receive a fine performance from Cordish. the 1968 Red and Blue stickhandlers should be one the Ivies will have to reckon with.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 25. 1967
Penn netmen's fortunes bounce like u rubber bull The U. S. Davis Cup Tennis Team had trouble adjusting to clay conditions in 1967, and so did the Pennsylvania netmen. Losses suffered on the soft surfaces at Hanover and Princeton kept the Quakers from an unbeaten season and an Eastern Intercollegiate Championship. The campaign started with a flourish. The Quuaker netmen vanquished the opposition in their first six matches, including shutouts over Navy and Brown and an upset of Harvard, then the top-ranked Eastern tennis power. The Harvard battle undoubtedly was the highlight of the '67 season. Playing on the hard courts outside Hutchinson Gymnasium, an inspired Pennsylvania net contingent defeated the Cantabs, 5-2, displaying the best tennis of the season. The surprise of the day was the play of number two man Fred Levin, the new Penn net captain. Levin downed Bernie Adelsberg, the '66 New England Intercollegiate champion, in a gueling, 3V2 hour marathon. RAIN A SPOILER Rain and cold weather, however, interrupted practice and matches frequently. In all, six matches — two with Yale — were postponed or cancelled. The effects of the interruptions materialized when Penn dropped its first match, 5-4, to Dartmouth. Penn quickly rebounded with its third shutout, in a non-league bout with city rival LaSalle, but arch-nemesis Princeton, capitalizing on an injury to Red and Blue captain Clay Hanlin, the top Quaker, knocked Penn out of contention for the EITA crown with a 614-2»4 victory. A 6-0 win over Columbia in the final contest gave the Quakers their fourth shutout, but it wasn't sufficient to loft the net-
men up to a second place finish in the EITA standings. Yale dealt runnerup Princeton a 6-3 setback to remain unbeaten and sweep to the EITA title, with Harvard and Dartmouth finishing behind the Quakers and rounding out the first division. CURRY TOP FROSH The freshman team, led by the most highly accredited tennis player to come to Penn in recent years, Hugh Curry, suffered two defeats, one unexpectedly to Army and the second at the hands of an undefeated Princeton squad. Backing up Curry, the nationally-ranked leader of the yearlings, were Middle States Interscholastic titlist Matt Bellis, Mason Gerhart. and Chad Hazam. As sophomores, these four will add more manpower to coach Al Molloy's already depth - laden squad. The soph quartet will be in contention for starting berths with seniors Levin and Dave Brown and juniors Spencer Burke, Bill Powell, and Richie Cohen. As freshmen, Burke. Powell, and Cohen combined to lead the yearlings through an undefeated campaign. ELIS LOSE TOP TWO Looking toward the future, EITA champion Yale loses its top two men through graduation, Princeton three of six starters. Harvard two. and Dartmouth Charlie Hoeveler, the New England Intercollegiate titlist; Penn sustains only one significant loss, captain Hamlin. Thus, the Red and Blue definitely will be in the thick of things next spring. There is but one clay court which could cause trouble — at Cambridge. The EITA race will be tight, and Penn, with its depth, could well swing its way to the top.
Statistics show Penn sports on way up There is no better proof that Penn's athletic program is booming than the chart below. Not since the 1959-60 season had Pennsylvania's varsity athletes enjoyed more than 100 victories in the win column; this year the Quaker varsities topped the century mark by 38. The freshmen squads also wound up with their finest year in quite some time, winning three of every four athletic contests. Fifteen of the 16 yearling contingents had winning seasons; 14 had winning percentages of .600 or above. This year there will be many superstars coming up from the Class )f '70 ranks.

Owens wins IC4A 220 as Penn trackmen gain a winning year On the fence surrounding the almost-finished Fine Arts Building, in addition to the peace slogans, one athletic-minded individual scrawled the legend, "Victory for Penn Track." 1967 was definitely a victory year for the cindermen, who emerged with a winning record which not even coach Jim Tuppeny dared to predict. The Quakers won two dual meets and lost three, but swept triangular competition with Columbia and Brown to compile a 4-3 slate. At the outset of the spring season, rookie mentor Tuppeny set two modest goals for his thinclads —to win a dual meet and to hold the opposition to less than 100 points. The Red and Blue accomplished the first objective, knocking off LaSalle 92-48 with sophomore Jim Pollack winning three events. With the opening meet win, the Quakers snapped a streak which had seen them drop 12 dual meets in a row. Penn had not beaten LaSalle since 1964. BEAT WEST CHESTER In their second dual meet, Penn upended West Chester 97-48, putting victories back-to-back for the first time in three years. The reverie was soon broken with a loss to Princeton in which the Tigers exceeded the 100-point mark. In the meet at Palmer Stadium Pollack pulled a hamstring muscle, sidelining him for the season. The loss of Pollack cost the Quakers ten points against Princeton, and had he been running, the
Tigers would not have broken 100. On Skimmer, Penn traveled to Providence to defeat Brown and Columbia before coming home to their final two meets of the season, their first two at home. It was a new track team which returned to Franklin Field to compete on the spanking-new $250,-
Frosh heel managerial The Class of 1971 will be greeted by a new innovation in the managerial set-up when it arrives on campus. For the first time, freshmen wil be allowed to heel managerial in any sport. Until this year only sophomores could heel with the eventual hopes of becoming a head manager during their senior year. The managerial board has decided that head managers should be juniors and therefore freshmen should heel. The college manager is a far cry from the jock-straptoting high schooler. At Penn the manager handles travel arrangements as well as all the other details involved in intercollegiate competition. Spots are open for candidates in any sport. Interested freshmen can sign up at the Managerial Board booth on activities' night or at Weightman Hall.

000 track. Unfortunately Rutgers and Corneli spoiled the homecoming with smashing victories. The season closed on a rather disappointing note but gave more evidence of the improvement in track at Penn. At the Penn Relays at Franklin Field, the host Quakers were no threat to a championship but broke two school records, in the distancemedley relay and the two-mile relay. OWENS SPARKLES Rick Owens, a star on the Quaker gridiron eleven, sparkled in the sprint events and in the Penn Relays ran a 0:46.9 quartermile leg in the distance-medley. Owens closed out the season with a dramatic. 21.2 second victory in the IC4A 220. Next season 22 of the 26 lettermen will again be on hand. Owens will be back, and he will co-captain the squad along with 4:11.6 miler Earl Andrews. Standout sprinter Pollack and 1:51.5 half-miler Jerry Williams were sophomores and should again provide some excitement. The freshman squad sported a 5-1 slate, and cindermen like Greg Slivinski, whose 14.5 clocking in the 120 high hurdles set a University record, and former New Jersey Group IV mile king Dave Ladanye can't help but leave their marks on Penn track. The fortunes of Quaker cindermen are definitely on the upswing.
Soccer (Continued from Page 38) large role in determining how successful we'll be. "There is no doubt that we'll be far better than last year, but in light of our 6-1 loss to Brown and our 6-2 loss to Harvard, we'll have to improve considerably to reach their level. And, if anything, their level will edge up even more." If the Red and Blue booters are to be contenders, they will have to jell fast, for the defending champion Bruins are the initial Ivy opponent.
Swimming (Continued from Page 41) ished below the Red and Blue in the team standings. Despite the loss of stand outdistance freestyler Kendis to graduation, the future is very bright. Moving now into the new pool at Gimbel Gymnasium, coach Breen has 13 of 16 lettermen returning, including all the stars but Kendis, plus freshman standouts Kevin Koons, Wayne Hartke, Rick Smith, and Dewey Slater.
