THE HOl^ARD-TILTON MEMORIAL LIBRARY THE TULANE UNIVERSITY OF LOUISIANA Gift of George P.Guidry in memory of iitieiine Fidel Aragon Digitized by the Internet Archive in 2010 with funding from Lyrasis IVIembers and Sloan Foundation http://www.archive.org/details/jambalayayearboo56edit PETE . THE PELICAN PRESENTS THE 19 5 1 JAMBALAYA OF TULANE UNIVERSITY THOMAS ^ fv w LISTEn, mV CHILDRCn . . . GATHER 'ROUnO, R STORV VOU SHOULD HEAR; A tale of thiiiss I saw and did While at Tulane one vear. While flying over New Orleans My feathered tail was hit; The time was back in '51, I never shall forget. Some greenie's shot had found its mark, Controls got out of hand; So, perched atop Dinwiddy Hall I surveyed all the land. MkHi. The sfudenf center was down fhere, Calling bacic to my mind; All my many college friendships; Tie^ thai the years will bind I walked past a red brick building Where memories would lurk Reminding me of college^^days; The kids in social work. I looked toward another building, My thoughts turned back the years; To other +im.ei I'd stood before Tho school of engineer'; I was an "on-the-spot" witness, And here, I'll take my stand; That Tilton Law Building puts out The best lawyers in our land. Wanting to fly over Tulane, Once, before I'd depart, Richardson Building came Into view; Surely, here was my heart. The business end of our nation, Caued me to stop and stare; At hundreds who were studying Commerce—in Norman Mayer. !^inG THROUGH THE flTmOSPHERE That day .... to look arour I felt a new Tulane spirit Enveloped eaifiplRrground Pep rallies at McAllister, Joined with shirt-tail parades Virginia and Ole' Miss bonfires Lighted the shadows and shades. I spotted Tilton Library, Thoughts went back to tarry On times I'd had to study here; Books I'd had to carry. Up to the clouds the voices came Loud with vigor and vim; This was the spirit of Tulane Working out In the gym. I clapped my wings when I beheld Future filled with promise; Npw architects and engineers Pflssed from Stanley Thomas. My gaie then fixed on one building, (Here physics notes were read); Memories walked through these hallways Where many more shall tread. A big black cloud rose in the sky, I stopped so I could see; Some student had exploited the Theory of chemistry. Flying o'er the athletic dorm. On "T" formation beam; I proudly dipped a wing to say. Hi, Green Wave football team. Standing rar off in the distance, Past the houses and trees; Stood Hutchinson Memorial — Symbolic of M.D.'s. In every organization. One thing's behind it all — I found the heart of a campus Beating in Newcomb Hall. Two teams met on the Green Wave field, And, though I hate to brag; Along with their mascot; L.S.U. Vied for—and lost—"The Rag." Four boys went out for a "coon-hunt," (They hadn't far to hike). When they found game, not coon, oh, no- Better!! L.S.U.'s "Mike." Sandburg spoke from McAllister, And, though he had great form; My thoughts trailed off in ecstacy Over the new men's Dorm. Countless have passed through our portals And, though their image fades, Their hearts will always dwell among TULflHE'S w.V "Miss Football" was Renee Aubry, (She went to Californ); And Sarah, as "Miss Basketball," Almost completes this yarn. The lights were dimmed, the curtains down, Imagination tilled each age; The applause brought forth more curtain-calls Drama had found our stage. "Tulane at Mid-Century" was Carried out every Inch, In a Homecoming theme set off By our queen Sara French. The barkers yelled to sell their wares Gaiety knew no bounds; Tulane soil was transformed Into Campus Carnival grounds. m^jiM. fl mess AGE FROm RUFUS CARROLTON HARRIS ADMINISTRATOR EDUCATOR SPORTSMAN THE PRESIDEilT M^^- D E D I C fl T I n Behind our school stands a famfliar figure; changeable in outward appearance, but, in spirit, as inrimovable as the Statue of Liberty. She is Tulane's own Mrs. Buckner Chipley, who can be found in the student center every day from nine to five. Here she is known as "Chip" to the hundreds of boys and girls who come to her with their personal prob-lems, love affairs, and friendships. Along with planning their parties, she encourages tournaments of all sorts, for she is a staunch believer in the great American spirit—the spirit of contest. Though she has traveled a great deal through Housemother of the University Hostess of the University Europe, South and Central America, she prefers to stay here at Tulane indefinitely. To her, the students are the most important persons of the school, and she not only gives them her time—but her heart. Mrs. Chipley is of a generation-old New Orleans family, and is not the first of her family to win the acclaim of Tulane. In 1914, her brother edited the JAMBALAYA, and in 1 937, her son was also editor of the yearbook. With a heartfelt interest and understanding of others, she is an ember, igniting a hidden spark of ambition or hap-piness somewhere within us. So It is with greatest pride that the staff dedicates the 1951 JAMBALAYA to Mrs. Buckner Chipley.

FIELD Director of Alumni Activities T U L fl n E . The Tulane Alumni Association is a national organization which has become a salient factor in the progress of one of the South's oldest and greatest universities. Through It each alumnus is given an opportunity to serve and assist in the progress of the University. There are no membership dues, and all students upon leaving the University are entitled to membership in the Alumni Association. Records are kept on the activities of all alumni and efforts are being made at all times to keep in contact with the former students. One means of achieving this is through the medium of the TULANIAN, alumni publication which contains new.s of the University and alumni. This magazine Is sent to all grad-uates and former students for whom the office has correct mailing addresses. A representative from the Association welcomeis each graduating class at Commencement. Active local alumni clubs have been organized in many parts of the United States and elsewhere. Each year the Association sponsors hHomecoming, a cel-ebration which brings many grads back to the campus for reunions and other activities. On May tenth, the birthday of Paul Tulane, alumni meetings are held throughout the country and a memorial service is held In Princeton, New Jersey. The Tulane Alumni Fund, organized five years ago, is conducted by Class Agents and other representatives of the As'soclatlon. The Fund has grown each year and is now of real value to the University's financial program. 16 BEATRICE M.

Our Alumnae office is in the Newcomb Gymnasium building. We keep a complete file of up-to-date addresses of alum-nae. Each class has a New Orleans Alumnae chairman who is the contact for her classmates with the Association. Every alumnae in New Orleans is eligible for member-ship in the New Orleans Club, which is one of the many clubs in the country that make up the National Association. They are kept posted of the Association workings and take an active part in its drives and projects. Each year the Association sponsons a project for each of the undergraduate classes. This year we will have the Seniors come to the Alumnae banquet during Commence-ment week. For the Juniors and Sophomores we offered Career talks by some of our outstanding alumnae, and for our Freshmen, a dance with the cooperation of the Tulane Alumni was given after one of the first football games In the Student Center. The Alumnae meet on the campus twice a year for Memorial Services in December and April. There are two National Association meetings annually—one the morning of hlomecoming and the other during Commencement week In June. Our alumnae come back to their alma mater at this time and renew their cherished college day associa-tions. 'MADAM EX" MRS.

The chapter this year assisted in Freshman Orienta-tion Week, ushered ilt various university functions, held Paul Tuiane Day. and staged ihe annual Kampus Karnival. which netted just under Ij400 for charity. The local group also played host io ihe State Conclave of the fraternity. On ihe lighter side, Alpha Phi Omega put on ihe hilarious Ugly Mug contest, through which ihe ugliest man on the Tulane campus is selected! It is easy io see ihat APO is not an organization for ihose who desire personal recognition, but rather, ihe group tends io play up ihe value of teamwork and stresses ihe fact ihat irue personal satisfaction can be had by helping others.

Under ihe spon-sorship of the Society a series of social, cul-tural, and educational activities are held dur-ing the year with the purpose of familiarizing the students with the culture of ihe Americas. Outstanding among ihese activities is ihe ceie-bratlon of Pan American Week in April. The PAS plays an Important part in ihe orientation of foreign students and in ihe Latin-American relations of Tulane University and ihe City of New Orleans.

At the Homecoming Dance all of us enloyed the music of Hal Mclntyre. His sweet dancable music coupled with the presentation of a lovely court made it an enjoyable evening. In addition. Lagni-appes sponsored a large Spring Dance, a square dance In the gym, and student stomps which were held every other Friday.

Realizing the Importance of a knowledge of ou.r country's international affairs, and feeling a need of a systematic study of 'ihe problems which are constantly confronting the American people, the Tulane International Relations Club was formed for the purpose of 5tudylng_ and discussing these national and international events and Issues which are daily transpiring within and without our" national borders and which vitally concern our Ame-Ican life. It is the intention of the club io deal with all ques-tions and topics In an impartial manner, _ al-ways endeavoring to search out and appreciate the truth of each situation under Investigation, It is the IRC's ambition to maintain a broad-mindedness and a fair judgment In discussing our national and International problems, and Ihus better fit ourselves, as college men and women, io take an intelligent and effective part In (o.-wardlng the Interests of our country and our several communities. In order vo carry out ihese intentions ^o *he fullest extent and in ihe most expeditious man-ner, ihe IRC this year has sponsored a number of nationally and iniernationaliy known speak-ers who have spoken on such timely topics as France and Indo-Chlna, New Orleans .ind World Trade, British Socialism. The United Nations, and Spain Under Franco. Also, some very excellent movies were shown, and _1he biggest highlight of ihe year was the United Nations Day Banquet.

Adelphons is an interfraternity fraternity, founded at Tulane University in 1949 to promote inter-fraternity relations and spirit, to further coopera-tion between the University and the Greek Letter organizations and to serve the school. By its very nature it accomplishes the first of these objects since it is composed of members of the social fraternities elected by the Adelphons. In this group they work and relax together creating a bond and a unity of nineteen fraternities which are rivals in almost every other field. Meetings are held in roundrobin fashion in the fraternity houses on the campus, affording an opportunity to each fraternity to meet and make new friends among the others. The Adelphons -have represented the fraternity world in such school functions as University Convo-cation. At Christmas it served as a coordinating body when many of the Greeks sought through the purchase of presents and clothes to bring Christmas into the homes of many needy families. At present the Adelphons are sponsoring a move to publish an interfraternity handbook to be sent out to all incoming Freshmen. This is an effort to promote and publicize the obiects and values of fraternities at Tulane and by providing information to give a better understanding of their worth. In the line of social functions probably hte most outstanding was the picnic given ai Vince Massimi-ni's house in Slidell. It was there that most of the members acquired their first sunburn of the year while swimming and playing Softball. OFFICERS EDWARD WRIGHT . BREWER PENCE . . JOEL FEIGAN , . . HANS FEIBELMAN .

Anything from Churchillian oratory to Im-promptu "Give 'em hell" diatribe can be heard in the chamber of the Glendy Burke Literary and Debating Society. Generally the latter though, fo.r if current political issues are seldom solved in its Senate-like proceedings, they are given a violent airing. The Glendy Burke Society is the University's representative for intercollegiate debate, and it is around debating that most of the society's activities center. Besides entertaining visiting teams, often outstanding ones such as Oxford, U. of California, and West Point, the society sends Its varsity squad to week-end tourna-ments and out on brief tours. Glendy Burke is the pjace to acquire self-confidence in public speaking, to hear book reviews on Important political writings, to become a stickler for parliamentary procedure, and to get chummy with a crowd of future (and present) poli-ticians. The society is freighted with traditions—one being that no women are -allowed—but this Is altogether to be expected, for, after all, as the members do unanimously agree: the Glendy Burke Society Is older than the University.

(JACK) TURNER EdHor-in-Chief Below: The sinner, the preacher, and the pope Bottom: Obviously posed The staff has tried to present this 1951 JAMBALAYA in a different manner than its predecessors with several changes from the standard run of JAMBALAYA. Recognizing the fact that the individual student is interested pri-marily in his or her particular school the class sections have been ar-ranged according to the separate Universities and Colleges comprising Tulane University. In these separate sections have also been placed the various organizations which are mainly participated in by the students of that particular College. This has enabled us to eliminate a large and sometimes dull organizations section. With the belief that the full value of a college annual is not realized until some time after a student's graduation we have made an attempt to give the hometown addresses of all students whose names appear in this book. We believe that this may be of value to a student in later life T. LEACH E. FRANCISCO R. BRINKMANN »>^' t / ROBERT THOMPSON Associate Editor have the feeling I'm watched OLGA TURNER Associate Editor who wishes to contact an old classmate but who has lost that classnnate'5 address. At least the home address as given in this book will give the student a starting point for correspondence with old classmates. Another point of interest in this book is the different sections devoted to various activities such as Dramatics and Music, Religion. Dorm life, etc. We feel that all these actvities play a very great part in any stu-dent's college life and therefore should be remembered through his col-lege annual. Also in this book we have tried to give credit where credit is due. Those students who have achieved outstanding success on the campus have been duly recognized but at no time have we allowed just plain old Joe College to be lost among the B.M.O.C.'s, favorites, wheels and what have you. This book is designed for the average man in the class-rooms and not for the boys in the extra-curriculum fields. D. POPE B. CHERRY G, WINN C. GUYNES A. HOLBROOK THOMAS E.

Especially one about soccer. . Also prominent in the "Hulla " office were the two col-umnists. Jack Anderson, who always pleased the advertis-ers, and Bob Leidenhelmer, the red blooded American boy. Usually hiding in a corner until ten minutes before their columns were due, they would crawl out and bang frantically away at a typewriter for a few seconds. The re-sult was generally just short of being libelous. Still the "Hulla" staff continued its winning ways with its stupenduous editorial page. The athletic office set up an office In the gym; the cafeteria started using hot water, and the engineers and lawyers wrote nasty letters. Another feature was the hole In the head which resulted from the Gorgeous Gertrude vs. Canada Don. Gorgeous Gertrude put up a terrific struggle but Don was too much for him.

Thomas Cain, Librarian. This year found the Tulane Glee Club making its greatest stride toward a very bright future. When Dr. McPeek took over the position of director of this group, the future looked mighty dim. The club was disorganized and small. Buh with a lot of hard work, the group has made this their bGnne"- year. With their membership numbering in the eighties, the Glee Club found it possible to make the first club trip since 1926. Setting out early in the school year, they soent the weekend entertaining the women at Gulf Park College with a s-i'all concert. By the middle of April, the club was off again on a tour of Louisiana. They presented concerts in Lafayette. Opelusas, Lake Charles, and Alexandria. The last stoo was their campus, Tulane. Along with giving a con:ert at the Alumni dinner, during Homecoming, the c:lub furnished hhe male leads and chorus for the yearly operetta and sang for a Christmas party in the cafeteria. This long list of activities does nol include, of course, innumerable impromptu serenades at the Newcomb dorms. Yes, this .vas a grsat year for Tulane's Glee Club, and from he'^e on there will be many, many more. Officers are: Emily Xanfen, President; Betty Neville, Vice-President; Mildred Lahasky, Secretary; Christine West, Publicity Manager; Rey Zemmer, Business Manager. Female students of the University who enjoy singing as a diversion from classwork find the Newcomb Glee Club a means of combining pleasure and skillful Instruction in choral work. Under the direction of Dr. McPeek, this group boasted a successful year with participa-tion In the Newcomb Christmas Memorial Service, Its annual Spring Concert, and a two-day tour of Mississippi. OPERETTA This year's Gilbert and Sullivan production was the satire, "Pa-tience," a take-off on the aesthetlcism of Oscar Wilde and other poets of 19th century England. The members of the Tulane and New-comb Glee Clubs cooperated to play for enthusiastic audiences both nights. Polly Jean Phelps was Patience and Warren Gadpallle was Bunthorne. Under the expert direction of Dr. McPeek and the fine enthusiastic cooperation of the cast, this year's production turned out to be one of the funniest, most successful operettas given at Tulane. THE UKELflNinnS Officers are: Buddy Roepe, Major; Janet Scharff, Minor; Emily Griffith, Diminished; Minan Pearce, 7th; Mr. Elnar Pedersen, Aug-mented; Arthur Godfrey, Collossal Uke and hlonorary Member. The "Ukelanlan," the Tulane ukulele club, was formed this year under the lively motto "Fun for all and all for fun." Its members frol-icked, musically speaking, regularly once a week and, like jolly good fellows, took an enlivening part in many a campus activity throughout the year. Among the events at which their lilting dischords were heard were the Faculty hHomecomlng Dance and the Campus night show. In addi-tion they played, reputedly by request, over several Radio Tulane programs. 38 OFFICERS JOHN J.

MORRISSEY Marching to the tune of Its theme song "Way Down Yon-der," the Tulane Band began another successful .season when it showed Alabama's "Million Dollar Band" our version of co-ordinated marching and playing at the first football game of the school year. Compared with the bands of Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, and LSU, the Band demonstrated unusual ability to put on an effective half-time show with a minimum of prac-tice time. Yes, the band members use their valuable 'study time in order to come together three hours every week to play or to prepare formations for Saturday's game. The Band, as contrasted with most other activities, Is really a fraternity — the members showing their school spirit in the beot way they know. The Band, of course. Is centered around its capable director, John J. Morrlssey, without whose inspiration the Tulane Band would not exist. Mr. Morrissey's national reputation as a com-poser is well known. At its spring concert every year, the Con-cert Band gives a first performance of one of his compositions. Recent compositions by Mr. MorriGsey include the "French Quarter Suite," "Carnival Day in New Orleans," and "Amer-ican Week End." This year, much to the delight of the student body, he wrote a new spirit song, "hlullaballoo." After its In-troduction at the Vandy game, everyone was humming or whistling this catchy tune. Members of the marching band are men students of the university. At the clcise of the football season when the ef-forts of the Band are directed toward concert music, mem-bership is also open to women students of Tulane and New-comb, in the past years, participation in the Band brought no reward other than the pride In being a part of this group, but now each member receives a sweater or key at the end of the season. The Spring Concert, pre'Sented by the Band during the first week in May, is an annual event. This year the concert was given on three consecutive nights to accommodate the large and enthusiastic audiences. In addition, a Spring Concert Tour is a yearly planned activity of the Band. THE PEP BAND The Tulane University Pep Band is composed of members of the Tulane University Band, but It Is an entirely .separate organization. This spirit and pep group plays at all of the pep rallies and shirt-tail parades throughout the football season during which the Tulane University Band does not participate. All the school songs are played by this spirit group at these rallies as well as other marches and some old-time Dixieland jazz. It has been only during the past few years that this or-ganization has become active at the school pep rallies, but they have become a permanent and looked-for Gf?irit group. 41 nRil SOMETHING ABOUT YOU'S ABNORMAL I \ ^^^r" COL.

TULflne RIR FORCE ROTC The Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps was esfabllshed af Tulane Universlfy, New Orleans, Louisiana, In 1947, with Lt. Col. Frank L. Wood as Assltant PMS&T for Air. For two years the unit operated under the joint direction of the Army and Air Force. The enrollment during that time was 164 Cadets. In 1947, the unit was separated from the Army and placed under full Air Force control. Colonel Byron S. Webb replaced Colonel Wood In August 1950 and Is presently the Professor of Air Science. The permanent party personnel assigned to this unit has increased this year from four officers and four airmen, as of the beginning of the school year, to seven officers, one warrant officer, and four airmen. At the beginning of this school year Colonel Byron B. Webb was as-signed to this unit as PAS&T to replace Colonel Frank L. Wood, Jr., who completed his AF ROTC tour of duty with this unit at the close of the 1949-1950 school year. Major James G. Jones was assigned to this unit as an instructor in Administration and Logistics. Captain Walter E. Scott was assigned to this unit as an Instructor, In Commu-nications; Captain Jack W. Lycan was assigned to this unit as a Communications Instructor; S/Sgt. Theodore F. Morosko, clerk-typist; M/Sgt. Roy M. Barlow, Warrant Officer Junior Grade, Is Instructor, General Training. The AF ROTC training at Tulane University Is divided into two phases, the first being Administration and Logistics. Air Science IV offers training In General Administration givng special emphasis on Air Force Management, Food Service Supervision, Purpose and Basic Functions of the Staff, Administration of Personnel, and Comptroller-ship. Air Science III deals more with Forms and Reports along with Logistics. Air Science II deals with specific Air Force subjects such as Navigation, Meteorology, Aerodynamics and Propulsion, and Al-lied Air Power. Air Science I deals with general military subjects. The second phase In AF ROTC training Is Communications. This course Is to indoctrinate the officer candidate in the fundamental principles of Air Force Communications, rather than to present a detailed course of the entire complex field. Some of the highlights of the course are Command and Administration, Inspection and Training as related to Communications Personnel; Comnnunlcations Centers, and Message hlandling; Functional Communications Systems; and finally Communications organizations. During the year three joint parades were held with the Army and Navy ROTC units. Among the dignitaries attending the reviews were Dr. Harris, Colonel Maraist, Commanding Officer of the Louisiana Military District, and Admiral William K. Phillips, Commandant of the Eighth Naval District.

The Army Unit was founded only three years ago with an initial enrollment of 135 in the Transportation Corps Battalion on the main campus and 105 in the Medical Service Unit located at the Tulane School of Medicine downtown. Now the Transportation Corps Battalion boasts 304 cadets which make up the four companies, the Drill Platoon known as the "Rebel Rifles." and the joint Drum and Bugle Corps. The Medical Service Unit has been increased to a total present enrollment of 154; accordingly the Professor of Military Science and Tactics" staff has been Increased to maintain the high standard of instruction. Colonel Lowell A. Yost, the Professor of Military Science and Tac-tics, ably assisted by Major Irwin Jordan. Assistant PMS&T for the Medical Service Unit. Major Warren H. Kerstadt, and the competent staff of Instructors has built up one of the highest rated ROTC Units In the Fourth Army Area. The "Rebel Rifles," organized and Instructed by Sergeant First Class Ross, has shown the Tulane spirit of accomplishment in making Itself an outstanding Drill Platoon which has participated In many extra-curricular activities of a patriotic nature. Just this year, the Drum and Bugle Corps has been formed from Cadets of the Army and Air Force ROTC Units. This musical corps has a full complement of 30 members which has attended all the ROTC ceremonies and parades to lend the inspiring cadence that has re-sulted In the precision of the Battalion. The Transportation Corps Battalion was led in Its activities this year by Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Hilton A. Dickson, Jr., assisted by his staff. Cadet Majors Peyroux. Williams, and Lanham. Cadets Eugene E. Schaefer. Jr., William H. Davis. Gladden S. Walters, Hilton A. Dickson, Jr., Richard E. Story, and Henry D.

Naval ROTC Unit is in its thirteenth year at Tulane University. The Unit has 203 members and of these, 37 will graduate and receive commissions in the Navy and Marine Corps this summer. The Unit has grown steadily since the end of World War II. and v/ill have an enrollment of about 275 Midshipmen during the 1951-52 school year. The enrollment Is limited, admission being based on an annual guota. Because of this, the requirements for admission are rela-tively high. The Navy Unit was commanded by Captain E. T. Eves, USN. during the i950-5l school year, assisted by Commander T. C. Edrlngton, USN, the executive officer. The military staff in addition, consisted of one marine officer, four naval officers and seven navy and marine petty officers. Midshipman John Mllandin commanded the Mid-shipman Battalion with Midshipman Leon C. Leonard as sub-com-mander, and Midshipman William L. Crull, III, John E. Jackson, Jr., and Frank S. Cannon as company commanders. The academic year activities of the Unit were brought to a finale this year by a Parade for Presentation of Awards and the President's Review, at which the traditional presentation of colors to the com-pany winning the annual competition took place. This was followed by the Annual Ball held at the Naval Station in Algiers. La. On the completion of the activities for the year, the midshipmen left for training cruises and vacation periods lasting until the start of the 1951-52 academic year.

Aside from keeping the Greek letter organizations In line they pro-vide and supervise Inter-fraternity competition in ming to skit night, song test and hlomecoming. Those which win or place in these events receive proportional numbers of points. Trophies are awarded to the winner of each event. The frater- 84 pfln-HELLENic council nity with the highest score at the close of all com-petition is given the Pan-hlellenic Cup for the year. This year for the first time the Council spon-sored a Greek Week program which was com-posed of a series of events tending to bring to the pledges of every fraternity the full meaning of brotherhood, the value of a fraternity, the rela-tion of the fraternities to the school and the methods and duties of the Council. Group dis-cussions, a talk by a fraternity alumnus on "Why Be a Fraternity Man," and a party for all members and pledges comprised this Greek Week which was successful in every way. One of the outstanding events of the year is the Spring Formal which is open to all fraternity men on the campus. This year it was held at the Tulane room and was highlighted by the presen-tation of the members of the Jambalaya Beauty Court of 1951. 85 flLPHfl TflU OmCGfl OFFICERS PAUL L LORIA President WOODRUFF A.

MclNTYRE Secretary 1 only want a buddy—not a sweetheart Beta Epsilon chapter of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity has enjoyed one of its most outstanding seasons in recent years. A.T.O. started things in September with a highly successful rush week, climaxed by the pledging of twenty-two rushees. The chapter showed a great deal of school spirit during the football season, attending en masse the Notre Dame pep rally in a truck bedecked with green and blue and numerous spirit slogans and signs. This year A.T.O. at Tulane elected a sweetheart for the first time In the chapter's history. Elected upon the basis of her active A.T.O. spirit and loyalty. Miss Hanton de la hfoussaye was presented as sweetheart at the annual formal held at the New Orleans Country Club on Febru-ary 9. The newest member of A.T.O. on the Tulane campus is Dr. Hans B. Jonassen. who was welcomed into the fraternity in a long anticipated initiation ceremony on April 2. The high point of the year was the announcement that the chapter had won the Alpha Tau Omega High Council award for the highest scholastic improvement record over the preceding year. This award, won In competition with one hundred and eight other chapters in the nation, consisted of a thirty volume set of the Encyclopedia Americana and the High Council Plaque.

Despite police protection, the Betas are still highly discriminated against by their neighbors who don't seem to enjoy the melodious entertainment on Saturday night as also the Beta Band any day of the week, anytime.

Wins in football and track, and other places kept the Dekes in the thick of the Pan-Hellenic cup competition, Charlie Wilson's election to Phi Beta Kappa, the third Deke In three years, highlighted the chapter's sterling scholastic effort. Election of Jack Weinmann as student body president, various class presidents, Greenbackers and Lagniappes president, and members of Tau Beta Pi and ODK kept the Dekes busy around school. The usual noisy Saturday nights kept the neighbors awake, as did the noisy meeting for the house-boys.

Delta Sigma Phi was founded, with the 20th century, at the College of the City of New York December 10, 1899. Chi chapter was chartered on the campus ofTulane University March II, 1916. The fraternity colors are nile green and white, and the official flower is the white carnation. Guiding the destinies of the fraternity this year are Stan Muller. Presi-dent, and his colleagues, Bob Collins in charge of fun and parties, Jerry (The Whip) Honeycutt in charge of the pledges. The gentleman who never makes a mistake with the minutes during the meetings is Steve Kandra. The money changers for the Klan were Ben Mauthe and Bob Arrington. The house and the garage have undergone many changes this year. The garage was turned into a ping pong room (did you say ping pong room) and the house turned into a home for honest, hard working, clean cut American boys. Joe Steverson, Bob Breger, Ben Mauthe and many others were responsible for the changes around here. The Delta SIg Bayou Brawl is something of a fixture around Tulane and never fails to excite gay spirits, but this year our shipwreck party gave the Brawl some keen competition. This year the Delta Sigs are having a monthly dinner (it's all we can afford) at one of the swank cafes in town. They have proven a great success in keeping the gang to-gether. All we can say about the Winter Formal is it was GREAT. The Young Alumni have formed a Club and we believe they will be of great assistance to the active chapter in the coming years.

The social calendar of Beta Xi chapter was given a good start with the Beta Xiclone party which celebrated a successful rush week in which Delt pledged more new members than any other fraternity on the campus. Other notable events were the Halloween party, the annual Orphan Benefit party at Christmas and the New Year's party at the Shelter at which both Kentucky and Oklahoma Delts celebrated the Sugar Bowl week-end. Always active in campus affairs, Delt again showed interest in almost all phases of student life, especially the Military, Choral activities, and Homecoming in which it again placed in the display competition.

Led by Bobby Zetzmann, who vainly pounded the gavel in an attempt to bring order out of the chaos in the chapter meetings and Sam Maclin who became famous for his "We just can't afford it, you guys," a full year of parties and other activities crowded the Phi calendar. The year got oif to a roaring start with the sleepy-time party which climaxed rush week. Only trouble was, nobody was sleepy! Around Christ-mas, the Phis staged a party for some of the city's orphans. It was hard to tell who had the most fun; the orphans or the Phis and their dates. Spring came and found the Phis rolicking at the annual formal. The year was closed out with the SOUTH SEA ISLAND party, where every-body played like natives . . . sarongs, Hawaiian music, pineapple juice, etc., etc. . . . Big wheels around the house, besides the two above, included Bob (this IS good food) Shader, the house manager; Walter Ward, who tried to record the antics in the chapter room; Ev Noetzel, who valiantly (and vainly) tried to keep EVERYBODY from yelling at once; and Lowell Wes-terman, whose job it was to keep National HQ happy and occasionally filled in in Zetz's absence. . . .

The round of activities began with a rousing rush v/eek followed closely by a series of gala mennorable parties and social events. Of special note was the Arabian party complete with three tons of sand and a question-able "Casbah." After the Tulane-Notre Dame game, the chapter was host to the team, band, and student body of Notre Dame. The tradi-tional Christmas serenade of the Newcomb dormitories was followed by a brief holiday rest. Second semester activities were resumed with Greek Week and pledge initiation on February 17 with a banquet and a party at the Roosevelt's Blue Room. During the year, the fraternity was host to the Pan-Hellenic Council meetings. March 10 saw the Annual Founder's Day Banquet at the Country Club and on April 21 the chapter's Formal Dance was held.

The Sammies have chalked up another successful year under the lea-dership of Prior Leonard Bagelman. The "Bag" and his boys began the year by taking first place in the tHomecoming decorations with our tin-foil covered house. We also learned that we had won the Pan-hellenic Scholarship Cup for the preceding year with the help of Phi Beta Kappa's Orkin and Yoffee. Our take-off on the "Pied Piper of Hamelin" tied for second place in Skit Night. Sammie athletic teams competed actively in all Pan-Hellenic sports and we won the volley-ball championship. Our social season was marked by the annual Orchid Formal in February, at which Sweetheart Betty Rubins was introduced, the "Hawaiian Hang-over" party in April, and our year-end banquet in May.

In scholarship, the chapter moved up nearly 40 places on the list of all Sig chapters. The Sigs picked up greatly in Pan-Hellenic sports, also, taking the Pan-hHell trophy in basketball and furnishing big competition in track, in which they placed third. Sigma Chi was a top contender for the Pan-HeN Softball trophy. The first annual Sigma Chi Derby Day was a great success last May, and the second event promises to be even bigger, with enthusiastic sup-port from all Newcomb sororities. Highlight of the social season, the March 10 Sweetheart Ball was as great a success this year as it has been in the past with Kappa beauty Sara Woods as the 1951 Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.

Although our Homecoming display was a thing of beauty, it did not place, and the brothers had to console themselves with a consolation prize; beer. The annual Woman Hater's Week was one of mucfi joy for the Zebes, but much sorrow for the Newcomltes, as they persisted In jeering at our house, even though they were not being spoken to. All offenders were sen-tenced to the lagoon.

^ fv w
LISTEn, mV CHILDRCn . . . GATHER
'ROUnO, R STORV VOU SHOULD HEAR;
A tale of thiiiss I saw and did
While at Tulane one vear.
While flying over New Orleans
My feathered tail was hit;
The time was back in '51,
I never shall forget.
Some greenie's shot had found its mark,
Controls got out of hand;
So, perched atop Dinwiddy Hall
I surveyed all the land.
The sfudenf center was down fhere,
Calling bacic to my mind;
All my many college friendships;
Tie^ thai the years will bind
I walked past a red brick building
Where memories would lurk
Reminding me of college^^days;
The kids in social work.
I looked toward another building,
My thoughts turned back the years;
To other +im.ei I'd stood before
Tho school of engineer';
I was an "on-the-spot" witness,
And here, I'll take my stand;
That Tilton Law Building puts out
The best lawyers in our land.
Wanting to fly over Tulane,
Once, before I'd depart,
Richardson Building came Into view;
Surely, here was my heart.
The business end of our nation,
Caued me to stop and stare;
At hundreds who were studying
Commerce—in Norman Mayer.
!^inG THROUGH THE flTmOSPHERE That day .... to look arour
I felt a new Tulane spirit
Pep rallies at McAllister,
Joined with shirt-tail parades
Virginia and Ole' Miss bonfires
Lighted the shadows and shades.
I spotted Tilton Library,
Thoughts went back to tarry
On times I'd had to study here;
Books I'd had to carry.
Up to the clouds the voices came
Loud with vigor and vim;
This was the spirit of Tulane
Working out In the gym.
I clapped my wings when I beheld
Future filled with promise;
Npw architects and engineers
Pflssed from Stanley Thomas.
My gaie then fixed on one building,
(Here physics notes were read);
Memories walked through these hallways
Where many more shall tread.
A big black cloud rose in the sky,
I stopped so I could see;
Some student had exploited the
Theory of chemistry.
Flying o'er the athletic dorm.
On "T" formation beam;
I proudly dipped a wing to say.
Hi, Green Wave football team.
Standing rar off in the distance,
Past the houses and trees;
Stood Hutchinson Memorial
Symbolic of M.D.'s.
In every organization.
One thing's behind it all
I found the heart of a campus
Beating in Newcomb Hall.
Two teams met on the Green Wave field,
And, though I hate to brag;
Along with their mascot; L.S.U.
Vied for—and lost—"The Rag."
Four boys went out for a "coon-hunt,"
(They hadn't far to hike).
When they found game, not coon, oh, no-
Better!! L.S.U.'s "Mike."
Sandburg spoke from McAllister,
And, though he had great form;
My thoughts trailed off in ecstacy
Over the new men's Dorm.
Countless have passed through our portals
And, though their image fades,
Their hearts will always dwell among TULflHE'S
"Miss Football" was Renee Aubry,
(She went to Californ);
And Sarah, as "Miss Basketball,"
Almost completes this yarn.
The lights were dimmed, the curtains down,
Imagination tilled each age;
The applause brought forth more curtain-calls
Drama had found our stage.
"Tulane at Mid-Century" was
Carried out every Inch,
In a Homecoming theme set off
By our queen Sara French.
The barkers yelled to sell their wares
Gaiety knew no bounds;
Tulane soil was transformed Into
Campus Carnival grounds.

Behind our school stands a famfliar figure; changeable in
outward appearance, but, in spirit, as inrimovable as the
Statue of Liberty. She is Tulane's own Mrs. Buckner Chipley,
who can be found in the student center every day from
nine to five. Here she is known as "Chip" to the hundreds
of boys and girls who come to her with their personal prob-lems,
love affairs, and friendships. Along with planning their
parties, she encourages tournaments of all sorts, for she is
a staunch believer in the great American spirit—the spirit
of contest. Though she has traveled a great deal through
Housemother of the University
Hostess of the University
Europe, South and Central America, she prefers to stay
here at Tulane indefinitely. To her, the students are the most
important persons of the school, and she not only gives
them her time—but her heart.
Mrs. Chipley is of a generation-old New Orleans family,
and is not the first of her family to win the acclaim of
Tulane. In 1914, her brother edited the JAMBALAYA, and
in 1 937, her son was also editor of the yearbook.
With a heartfelt interest and understanding of others,
she is an ember, igniting a hidden spark of ambition or hap-piness
somewhere within us. So It is with greatest pride that
the staff dedicates the 1951 JAMBALAYA to Mrs. Buckner
Companion of the University
Save your Confederate money boys, etc.
The Tulane Student Council is composed of

Newcomb's National Alumnae Association is composed
of graduates and former students of the college. Our
Alumnae office is in the Newcomb Gymnasium building.
We keep a complete file of up-to-date addresses of alum-nae.
Each class has a New Orleans Alumnae chairman who
is the contact for her classmates with the Association.
Every alumnae in New Orleans is eligible for member-ship
in the New Orleans Club, which is one of the many
clubs in the country that make up the National Association.
They are kept posted of the Association workings and
take an active part in its drives and projects.
Each year the Association sponsons a project for each
of the undergraduate classes. This year we will have the

week. For the Juniors and Sophomores we offered
Career talks by some of our outstanding alumnae, and for
