Harold M. Hines

The City of Pasadena takes particular pride in the California Institute of Technology, builder of trained men in the technical and scientific world . Caltech and its men in their accomplishments bring fame and credit to the Institut e and our city. Students who are privileged to attend this world-renowned center of learning are fortunate indeed to have the opportunity to observe the contribution made by the publicspirited citizens to the many cultural and civic activities of the community. Among these may be mentioned the annual Tournamen t of Roses with its floral parade and football game, its art center, its theatrical productions. and. not the least. its athletic activities, many of which have produced athletes such as the lat e Charles W . Paddock, for whom your athletic field at Tournament Park is named. Caltech contributed substan tially to the successful conclusion of World War II in the development and production of many scientific devices for the armed forces. More important stilL it trained hundreds of men who performed distinguished serv; ce in the Navy . During this period many demands were made of the city requiring the combined efforts of the Institute and the city to accomplish what often appeared to be the impossible. The finest spirit of cooperation prevailed throughout, to which the municipal administration shall always refer with pride . Your first " Big T" in the post-war period will record these accomplishments and will serve to remind you that with the will to do in an atmosphere of cooperation, truly nothing will be impossible in the new era of peace. HAROLD M. HINES City Manager March 8. 1946

Long before Pearl Harbor, Cal tech researchers and technichians were at war. For six years most of their work was done in utter secrecy. Only now are we learing the munificence of ideas and equipment that they contributed to victory . They did more than their part. W e sa lut e them .

Arms cmd Mudd

The Charles Arms Laboratory of the Geological Sciences is the gift of th e late Mr . and Mrs. Henry M. Robinson while the western of the two structures was given by the late Mrs . Seeley W . Mudd . The total space available for instruction and research in the geological sciences probably exceeds that devoted to these purposes in any other institution in America. The interna l ararngement of the buildings is such as to provide suites of rooms adapt e d to the differen t branches of the geological sciences with office space available for all graduate stude nts in geology, paleontology, and geophysics.

Throop Hall, originally the only bui lding o f the Th roop Polyt echnic Institut e, from which the California Institute developed, is now the administration building. Throop has become the center of the campus, both architecturally and with respect to scholastic activities, as well as serving as administrative headquarters for over 3,00 0 employees of the Instit ute in its various war projects scattered over the Los Angeles area. Throop is symbolic of the sound fundam en tal s on which the Institute is founded .

Throop Hall

Late in 1941. the California Institute 01 Technology undertook the major responsibility lor the development 01 equipment and methods lor the d,ry-extrusion process of making explosives. and 01 rockets using them. The Bazooka was first used in the invasion 01 North Africa in 1942.

The largest rocket developed by CIT was the 1200 'p ound aircraft rocket. mod.estIy named "Tiny Tim." It gave the attacking plane the punch of a 12 inch naval gun.


Comloss y

This year's senio r class oflicers included such able m e n as Roger Clapp, presid e nt, John Fleming, Howard Jessen, and Ha l Comlossy. As usual , the class held its "Ditch Day" at some unidentified place, but according to th e rumors which lat e r float ed around, everyone had a s well time . The crowning feat of the year's activities was th e planting of sixty square feet of lawn in front of the ME building. Th e lawn was originally planned as being a subtl e hint to the faculty that the student body does not like ivy and ice-plant. The fresh were never given a chance to mow the lawn b ecause of a certain incognito who gave orders to have t!:le lawn removed .

At th e Christmas dance - Wolf was blowing Gould's nose.

Sophomore Officers, Oct. - Fob. Wolf, Shoemaker, Rock, Gould

Once Nat Gould was elected President of the Sophomore class, the spirit and enthusiasm for activities surpassed that of all other classes . The big affair of the year came just before Christmas, when Bob Barraclough engineered an enjoyable evening at the Christmas dance. Success f,?r that evening is due to the hard labor of a few individuals who devoted much of their time for decorating Dabn ey Hall Lounge . One of th e year's drawbacks was th e solid defeat handed out by the Frosh at the annual Rodeo -

Much to the disappointment of the upperclass men, this year's Frosh class is not of pre-war calibre-mos t of the Juniors and Seniors know by now that you can't ask a veteran to shine your shoes. However, the re are many of the new Frosh who are returning after being called by Uncl e Sam shortly after entering Tech.

W e sincerely

hope that these men in particular will help bring pre-war conditions back to Tech. On the present F·reshman Class largely rests the responsibility of carrying out the reformation of Tech social acFrosh Officers, Oct. -Feb. Hendrickson, Long, Hibbard , Wilkening

Th e chie f goal of this year's Board of Dire ctors, headed by presid e nt Rob Roy McDonald, was to do their utmost to bring s tude nt body affairs and activities back to the ir prewar status, and in view of this, a need for a Rally Committee chairman was soon realized . Phil Je n son was elected to th is post. and following his graduation, Jerry Schneid e r assumed Phil 's ollice. Included in the rehabilitation program was the rebirth of the Court of Tradition s , th e Varsity Club, the Bea ve rs, the California Tec h, and the Big T, all of which had ceased to e xist during the course of the war. The e fforts of this board have not b een in vain . Le ft to right around th e table: Tucke r , Strauss, ' Kelly, New broug h , Mc Dona ld , Schneider, Roskows ki, Hamil · ton , Wise

The Honor System at Caltech is an institution perpetuated by the whole hearted cooperation of the Student Body and th e Board of Control. Passing judgment on violations of our Honor System may be the primary duty of the board. but education of the students concerning the advantages of the sys tem has taken an importan t position in the duties of the board. Und er the able leadership of the Student Body vice-president. Bob Newbrough. this has Left to right : R. Stewart. J. Ward. R. Newbrough. R. R. McDonald. T. Hamilton. L. Schmidt. R. Barraclough .

been one of the most successful years that the board has had.

Committeeo Alway s a vital cog in the smooth functioning of student body allairs, the El ection Committee. headed by Je rry Ward. saw that ballots were printed. distributed. that polling booths were set up. and that th e returns were accurately tabulated.

Th e Int erhouse Committee. composed of th e house presidents and vice-presidents. is the ollicial representative body of the Student Houses. This committee es tablishes general house policies at its weekly meetings.

Th e Publicity Committee. under Bob Tucker's guiding hand. did its job well during the past year. Charged with the task of securing the public's atte ntion. the commit tee kE!pt Southern California newspapers well informed on Caltech sport and social even ts .


Along with the many changes back to "old times" at Tech was the revival of the Beavers this year. This organization is composed of a limited number of student leaders who have distinguished themselves by their active participation in extra-curricular activities about the campus. Livening school spirit in the student body through initiating and stimu lating campus activities is the objective of the Beavers. Membership is therefore an obligation to service to the student body. The success of the Beave rs in· quickly organizing and functioning as a service organization is due largely to th e leadership of its first president. George Austin. who benefit d th e new Bea ve rs with his familiarity with former Beaver activities and his new ideas . Within two months of the revival of the Beavers. the group had staged the celebrated Pajamarino. prepared an edition of the "Little T" and handled the orientation program for the new Freshmen.

The Varsity Club, dormant during the war years, was reorganized in a meeting held the 14th 01 January. Composed 01 men who have earned one major letter or two minor letters, it is one 01 the oldest and s tronges t-knit clubs on th e campus. The cl ub is primarily interested in the strengthening and !urthering o! intramural and intercol1egiate athletics, and as an additional duty, it assists th e Court 01 Tradition s in the maintenance of the college traditions. Suggestions as to any changes in the athletic situation made by th e Varsity Club receive a great deal of attention Irom the Athletic Council. This year's ollicers are: Milt Strauss, president; Denny Ahern, vice-president; Jerry Schneider, secretary; and

J. J. Burke, treasurer.

It is the purpose of the Tau Beta Pi to select its members from the highest one-eighth of the junior class and the highest one-fifth of th e senior class. The criterion for membership is not only a high academic standing. but also the student's con tribution to extra - curricular activities and his g e neral diversity of interest. Activities of the Tau Beta Pi included a beach party held early in the year. the combination formal initiation and banquet. and the formal dance which occurs once every school year. In spite of the manifold wartime restrictions. this fraternity has been able to carryon its affairs actively in much the same manner that was characteristic of its pre-war existence. Officers for this semester are J. J. Burke. president; E. S. Ida. vice-president; DeLano. recording secretary; D. C. Lincoln. corresponding secretary; D. Douglas. treasurer; and F. S. Gates. cataloger.

The Honor Key is the award of the Student body of Caltech to those who have performed meritorious service to their school through their work in extra-curricular activities. Those receiving the Key this past semester are: Tom Ham ilton. Lang Hedrick. Tom Kelly. Rob Roy McDonald. " Bit s" Morgan. Bob Newbrough. Ed Roskowski. Jerry Schneider. Milt Strauss. Bob Tucker. Dale Vrabec. Bob W ise. and Frank Wolf .

Since 1943, th e Student Body of Caltech has not received an annual. Becau se of this, Rob Roy McDonald appointed Frank Wolf and Joe Lesmez as co-editors shor tly before Christmas. Th e difficult task of appropriating enough money for publication was left in the hands of Carl Rasmu ssen. The staff constantly labored under unusual handicaps. Printing and eng raving costs had ri sen about 40 % over those exis ting in 1943, and paper suitable for the annual was nearly non-existent. At the end of February, Lesmez and Rasmu ssen found that their studies kept them from devoting enough time to the annual. As a result, Frank Jorgensen was appointed business manager and Leigh Sheriffs, former managing editor, was e levated to the position of co-editor. Although Joe and Carl do not appear on the staff, their work in the early stages of publication are warmly appreciated by those who finally finished th e laborious task. The editors fully realize that this annual is not quite up to Caltech standards. This is due to a considerable rise in prices, not having enough time in organizing a capable and willing s taff , and other unforseen difficulties. This ed ition of the Big T has carefully tried to follow the reorganization that the Student Body is und ergoing at this moment. It is hoped, however, that this edition will convey from mind to permanent record, the achievements of the In s titut e, of students and faculty alike, during the war. Very few people have given any of their fr ee time to h e lp put the " T" to press. The few who did, however, mu s t be thanked and congra tulat ed. Mr. Morland of the C . I. T. Purchasing Depar tmen t helped procure many of the " hard to get" photographic supplies, while twenty- three unid en tified aerologists consistently helped the business manager. To these, and a few others, we ex tend our warm thanks. Spe~ia l

mention must be made to the Austin Studios who are

responsible for the individual photographs. Th e ed itors realize only too well that there are many students whose pictures do not appear in this issue. The ear ly deadline on the photographs forc ed th e editors to leave out many "camera shy" st ud ents. Frank and Joe

Thanks must go to Mr. Jack Cannicott of the Los Ange les En gra ving Company, engravers for this " T", for his time ly advice on

the finer arts of publishing the annual. W e also thank Mr. Ke ith Cordrey of the Premier Printing Company who supervised the printing of th e book. W e must not forget Mess rs. Th e ron Imlay and Bob Dahlquist. two ex-G I artists, who designed the division pages. Last, but not by any means the least. we wish to ex tend genuine appreciation to th e advertisers ir; this Big T. Without their kind generosity, this edi tion could not have existed . The staff hopes that the Student Body will patronize these concerns in order to show them how warmly we fe e l for th eir tim e ly help.

* * *

In the minds of the edi tors, this issu e of the 1946 Big T is not the mere publication of the annual, but it is th e revival of an old Caltech, a school which had nearly died during the war. We, and many of th", students, want to see Caltech back where it used to be - back on top!

Racing is open to all; and the Club, besides providing at Snow Vall ey a convenient spot for getting it s members in s hape , arranges both intercollegiate meets lor its undergraduate team, and open-meets lor the en tire Club. Free instruction is given to team m e mbers by coach Larry Thack well and to beginners by the more exper t skiers of th e Club.

Created for th e purpose of supplementing the scientific and technica l education with th e religious, social. and moral implications of a well developed life, the Caltech YMCA has succeeded in creating for itself a respected place on the campus. Although many of its activities were seriously curtailed by the war, the Y has performed a long list of services. Highlighting the year's social program were two s uccess ful Frosh Tea Dances, informal religious bull sessions, a barbecue and dance with Scripps, and Y student forums featuring speakers on various political and socia l problems.


Traditional services which have b een performed this pus t y ea r include the used book e xchange and the loan jund for students finding thems e lv es temporarily embarrassed by a shortage of cash. In th e absence of a general secre tary, the office of adviser has b een filled by Dr. Hardin Craig. Officers for the first semes te r were Bob Wise, president; Frank Wolf. vice-president ; Louis Je n sen, secretary; Dick Spe llman, treasurer.

Caltech once again claimed its own dance band upon th e return of it s leader and arranger, "Rex" Stewart, from a vacation working as a professional musician. Seven men and a girl provided music that was en thu siastically approved by the campus critics as well as offering expe rience and enjoymen t by the expression of modern ideas in music for the members of the b::md.

Athletically. politically. and socially Dabney men showed themselves to be one of the most versatile and energetic groups on campus. Under the guidance of Social Chairman Merle Kam. the Social Committee launched its program immediately with a well attended and successful Dinn er Dance. the, other highlights of the semes ter being the Spring Formal and the Interhouse Dance. along with exchanges. a very commendable smoker. the Archery Green Picnic. and the Corona del Mar Beach Party. Managed by Jay Stuart. Dabney has entered enthusiastically into all Int erhouse and Discobolis competitions. as well as furnished men to all Varsity sports .

Getting back in the swing once again, Ricketts House has gotten many old members back from the war. As usual, the House has stood out in front for a social schedule, having exchanges with Scripps, Pasadena Ie, Pasadena Playhouse, and the campus secretaries. Many of the traditions are back again, the House having been thoroughly soaked in a couple of excellent water fights, and the Frosh-Soph brake drum having provoked several full blown riots. All told, th e Rowdies seem w e ll on the way to the w e ll rounded social life that distinguished the House before the war.

The football seasons of '44 and ' 45 will be remembered by Caltech st udents and alumni as the two mos t successful seasons in the history of the old Alma Mater. The success of these teams was due primaril y to the Navy's V-12 program, which brought to Tech the necessary. brawn as well as brains. Th e permission to play intercollegiate football was not the leas t of the problems facing the athletic d e partme nt prior to the opening of these seasons. Only after much persuasive arguing and final compromising did the Caltech administration finally give its consent to play football. The pOO'mission to play was give n so late in the y ear that only four games could be scheduled for the '44 season. The powerful Beave r e le ven d e veloped by Navy Chief Specialist Mason Anderson in turn wholloped Red lands in two contests, USC J.V .'s and the UCLA junior varsity. Th e '44 season ended with the Engineers !piled as one of the ve ry fe w undefeated, untied, and unscored upon teams in the nation. In fact, only one team got within Te ch's thirty yard line.

Th is season, with the Navy still at Tech, but with only three returning le tt e rmen, the pre-game out look was not promising . Howe ver, a six game schedul e was drawn up, Pe te Brown was engaged a s the new coach upon Chief And erson's transfe r. An inexperienced but enthu sed group of about 50 men greeted Coach Brown whe n fall practice started. Building around the three lettermen, halfback Jerry Wozniak, tackl e Bill Libbey, and guard Milt Strauss, Coach Brown rapidly whipped th e '45 edition of the Engineer football team into shape for it s opener against Redlands in the Rose Bowl on Sept. 7. Opening games always introduce a few jitters but in this affair Tech was guilty of e nough fumbles to supply several teams . Although the Engineers pil ed up 216 net yards from scrimmage while holding Redlands to 52 yards, seven unrecovered Tech fumbl es spelled ' th e differe nce b e tween victory and defeat. Re dlands dre w first blood on a long pass on th e second play of the game. Th eir second score was on an intercepted lateral. Many Engineer scoring opportunities were nullified by the numerous fumbles . The Beavers dropped the game 13-7.

Occiden tal proved no threat when, on Se ptember 14, the Beavers, bouncing back from the bitter Re dlands defeat, race d ove r an outclassed Tiger eleven 20 -0. Wozniak' s pitching a~m accounted for 18 of the 20 points. On Se ptember 22, the Techmen bogged down at San Luis Obispo when the y lost a close on e to Cal Poly, 7-6. On e of th e fluk e plays of the season, poor officiating, gave th e Beavers a defeat inst ead of a deserved tie. Aft er marching mo ,e than half the field , Tech chalked up its touchdown on an aerial from Wozniak to Schime nz .

Althoug h finishing third in the Southern California Conference th is year, Tech 's " high-pot e ntial " basketeers were selected as the e ighth college team on the coast by the Dunkl e National Rating Board. Dropping two games to Red lands , one to Oxy and one to Wh itti e r, none by over fiv e points, the Eng ineers fini s hed the league with four wins , four losses. It was not until th e last three games that Carl Shy's boys cou ld get rolling. Loaded with material. the squad began to click too lat e. Outstanding player of the year was Captain Stu Bates. Combining his sterling floor knowledge with his amazing speed, Stu was consistently breaking up the offense and getting the ball off the back board . Starting the season as a forward , Jerry Schneider was switched to guard by Coach Shy to utilize his speed and deftness in handling the ball. The forward spots were filled by Dick Jackson and Tom Mart in , V-S fro sh fl as hes. Jackson led Tech 's scoring co lumn with 181 points ; Martin, in his first year in a basketball s u it, was a constan t threat with his jump shot. Cavorting at the cen ter s lot was Paul Saltman , 6'S" fr eshman. Th e only civilian on an oth e rwise all Navy team, Saltman's h eight added to the team 's s tre n g th under the baskets. Filling out th e squad were Vince Nurre , fast stepping forward, Paul Jurach, giant center, Dick Gold, dead-eye guard, Elme r Brolin , rugged ball hawker, and De nny Ahern, fig hting d e fense w ho was unabl e to finish the season because of a s train ed knee.

In the first game, the Beavers romped over a hapless Pasadena J. C .. quintet 49-33. In the next tilt, th e Camp Ross so ldiers , paced by Don Barksdale, s mothered Tech SI -2 S. Jackson led the Eng ineers to a victory over Los Ange les City Coll e g e

by mangling the meshes for 22 markers; the final score was 34-28. The boys from the Arroyo narrowly edged out Whittier in the first league game by one point. Leading at the half. Tech stopped a last minute Poet rally to emerge victorious 30-29. Once again the team met Barksdale & Co., only to go down fighting to a more exper ienced squad 73-45.


In the first encounter with the Oxy five, the Beavers trailed 16-19 at the half. Closing the gap rapidly at the 'beginning of th e second period the Engineers squeezed out a 37-35 win. The slide rule kids met the mighty Trojans at USC; playing one of their best games of the season, the team fought US C to a final score of 2533 in favor of the Trojans. On the Red lands hardwood the Tech aggregation relaxed after a seven point half time lead to b e dumped by the bulldogs in a wild fray, 51-47.

The March Field Fly ers, paced by many former college players, handed Tech a 49-35 defeat. Unabl e to break it s losing streak, Tech was able to score only nine points in the ir tussle with UCLA . Too eager to get home for Christmas, the Techmen played slow, sloppy ball, to lose to the Bruins 33-9. The Whitti er Poe ts holding a strong lead at the half, resist e d every Beaver rally to win 43-38. Th e Redlands quintet left the orange groves long enough to subdue tbe Engineers 39-43. Tech dropped two more: 43-32 to Pepperdine, and 47-61 to March Field. At long last the boys in the Orange and White came to liIe, slapping a 46-31 defeat on Pomona . Jackson found the bucket often enough to head th e scoring with 16 points. Ne xt week found the squad attempting to twist the Oxy Tiger's taiL only to be bitten 38-41. Out-playing the Oxy five all the way, Tech lost at the free throw line, where they mis sed 12 gift shots. Thoroughly disgusted from the Friday encounter, th e enraged Beaver shocked the local sports writers by dunking the Pepperdine Waves 43 -41. This was by far the most exciting game of the year. Tech took the lead from the start and at the half led 20-12. With twen ty seconds to go and the score tied 41-41. Schneider made a beautilul half-court shot to put Tech ahead. Two Pepperd in e shots were blocked in the remaining second b e fore the gun fini s h ed off a wild game. Again the Beavers took Pomona in stride with Jackson hitting 16, and Sallman 13, to the tune of 50-41. Journeying to San Die go, the team was wined and dined by their generous navy hosts before the game so well that they were unable to get over their sluggishness and lost 38-46 . Brolin

Coach Shy

Not enough credit can be given Coach Shy. Hampered by not having a gym to work his team out, Coach managed to mold a dangerous team to any opponent. Th ere can be no predictions 101 next year's team since all 01 the Navy is leaving Tech and the only civilian letterman will be donning the khaki. However, with Coach Shy at the helm, Tech will again floor a lighting squad.

Th e ir failure to do so is due, in part, to the transfer of most of the Navy men to ot her school s . as th ese men constituted nearly all of las t year's team . The renewal of the Interclass meet led to a Fl eming victory with 55 points and Dabney close behind with 50112. Fl e ming's main asset was Tom Ke lly who garnered I B112 points for the Navy boys with first in the vault . discus and high jump. and a second in the broad jump. Slow but not unpromising times see m ed to be the order of the day. In the annual College relay s on the cold and wet Patt e rson fi e ld of Oxy. Tech participated in it s firs t track m ee t of the season. The final score was: Oxy 43. Redlands 19. Pomona 14. and Tech 12. Our twe lve points were scored by : Chambe rlain. Funk. Shalle r. and Davis in the BBO relay with a second, and Mill e r. Saltman . Coll e y. and Baker. a third in the s huttl e hurdles. In the fi e ld events. Grube placed second in the high jump and Ke lly placed in the pole vault . Following the cancellation of the San Diego Relays. the Beave rs played hos t to Pomona. W11ittier. and Red lands in a combination of dual meets. Redlands triumphed over all of their fo es by wide margins. The fin a l score of the four-way m eet was: Redlands 74. Pomona 40 3f.. Whitti e r 26 3f.. C a lt ech 23 112. In the meantime. Tech eme rged from on e of th e dual meets on th e long end of a 75-54 score over the Whittier

Poels . Two w eeks lat er, bouncing back fro m a stinging d e feat placed upon th em by OccidentaL the Tech cinder burners came through with a convincing triumph over the Te rminal Is land Blue jacke ts. Joe Coll ey and Charles Shalle r led th e Tech men in gathering 9 '/4 and 10 poin ts respective ly. Succeeding the Navy meet was a series of disastrous e ncount ers which at the best did nothing but make Coach " Doc" Han es hope for an improved track squad n ex t y ear. In a triangular m ee t with the Los Arige les Athl e tic Club and Peppe rdine, we had the privilege of watching s uch s tars as Johnny Wil son , Bob Peop les, Al He rs h e y, and Cliff Bourland. The quadrangular m ee t th e next week with UCLA, Pomona, and Loyola, was, as e xpec te d, a runaway for UCLA w hil e the Tech men had to be satis fi ed with a third place b e hind Pomona. Tech's cinderme n have fiv e more meets in their schedule this y ear. A conference meet at Pomona, the Fresno Re lay s, the Coliseum Relay s, the Pasadena Games, and the SPAAU championship a t Compton round out the schedule this sea son as the Big T goes to press. Although the mid- season outlook is none too bright. the m en might find thei r stride by the e nd of th e season.

This year's track team seemed to lack strength, but there is good promise of better things to come from sprinters Shaller, Wiren,

Funk, and Hartman who

should be crowding the 10 .Os in the hundred dash next year. Hurdle prospects are good if draft-agers Mili cI' and Saltman are allowed to return next year. Aftel' four years in the army, Bill Lundy has hopes of hitting his stride again at a 4 :40 mile clip. Conference halfmilers are going to have a difficult time beating Bill Simons next yea r. This year so far Bill has done -2~07 which placed him in the conference meet. Doc Hanes hopes that among the students next year he can lind replace ments for seniors Colley (low hurdle and 440), Kelly (pole vault and discus), Bement (miler), and Grube (high jump),

With a large group of inexpe rienced material and only four lettermen, Coach Hal Musselman was faced with the big job of whipping a team in shape. Outfi e lder Milt Strauss, who led the league in hitting last year with an average of .449, and Norman MacDonald, reserve pitcher, are the only men remaining from last year's championship squad. Langdon Hedrick, who pitched on th e 1940 team, and "Huck" Davies, pitcher in 1942 and 1943, have returned to school and assured th e team a good hurling staff. No one else on the 30 man squad had played before and the entire make-up of the team was a big question mark . The first game of the season, with PIC, turned out to be a pitcher's duel-who could throw the most wild pitches and walk the most men - as well as a very spotty exhibition of baseball, with many mistakes made by both sides. Tech overcame a 10-run inning spree by )C to tie the game at 12 all. Next week saw three games played by our boys in grey. The game with LACC was lost due to the removal of Hedrick for an unneeded relief pitcher. The score: 14 - 11. Tech beat ELAJC for its first taste of victory. A return engagemen t with PIC resulted in a rout of Tech, a vastly improved )C squad romping over the bases to win 14-2. As the season wore on, the "bad luck boys" con.tinued their losing streak by dropping a game to a brand new team from Glendale )C, 6-3; losing another

to PjC when they pummeled the Tech nine 12-1; another tilt with Glendale resulted in a 4-2 loss. As the conference schedul e opened (with two postponements). the Beavers had shown a decided improvement. but apparently not enough as Whittie r ran hog wild around the bases. as our fielders watched the ball fly by. to chalk up a decided rout of Tech. 10-1. Th e next week. the diamond boys found the going little better as Loyola toppled Tech 7-2 . The outstanding players for Tech in thos e games were Hedrick and Viewig. who battled in nearly all of the runs. A game the following week with Pepperdine saw Lang Hedrick go the distance but due to several inopportune errors and some strong hitting by the Waves. Peppe rdine came out on top 9-2. Merle Kam in center fi eld made some sensa tional catches which robbed several Pepperdine men of good hits. MacGinitie led the Beaver offense with three singles. Still lacking a conference win. the Beavers tackled the Pomona Sagehens and in a see-saw battle came out second best by the score of 9-8 . After MacDonald failed to s top the Sage hens . Hedrick took over and successfully handcuffed them as well as contributing a home run and a sing le to the Beaver scoring. With four conference loses und e r th e belt. fiv e more games remain to be played as th e Big T goes to press. Two of these are with Oxy and one each with Redlands, Whittier. and Pepperdine. While the outlook is not too good for th e rest of the season . Coach Musse lman is looking forward to next year as there will be only thr ee men leaving. Ahern. MacDonald and Captain Milt Strauss. With Hedrick and Davies as the nucleus. the experience that our diamond boys have had this season should put them in fine shape for next year.

Even with an abbreviated season of eleven matches, three of which were with USC and UCLA, the Tech n e lt ers found themselves ple nty busy. Though the y failed to win any of their first six matches, th ey gave a good account of themselves in several of the m, even with top m e n Tom Hamilton and Bob Newbrough laid up with injuries . After losing three successive matches to UCLA, Pepperdine, and Pomona, the "tough - luck boys" played host to an unde rdog, but inspired Oxy team and were b e aten 6-3 in a series of close matches. Following in the footst e ps of the four previous schools, USC varsity defeated the Techmen with a 9-0 shutout, leaving the Beave rs the satisfaction of winning only one set. The next week Tech traveled to

Tech lights lor a goal against SC

With only Bill Libbey le ft from the 1944 squad. Coach Bob Merrick. '42. quickly assembled a starting lineup for his water polo squad consisting of Frank Lamson-Scribner and Ronald Burford at forwards. Clifford Hugh es sprint. Herb Davis center back. Libbe y and Bob Walquist backs. and Bob Grube goalie. All of these men except Walquist were Navy trainees . Hughes. with his speed and accurate goal shooting. soon estab lis hed himse lf as the outstanding man in the leag ue. Aft e r winning the fir s t four matches . a flu epidemic hit a numbe r of the first s tring men and attributed for the two defeats in the final two games . In the ope ning game. Tech splashers coas ted to an easy 10-7 victory over Inglewood High. In consecutive weeks. Tech trounced UCLA in two games 10-7 and 9-5. and nosed out USC 12- 11 in a torrid contest. Hugh es and Burford were high scorers in all of these contests. A scrappy Whittier High squad handed th e Beave rs their first d e feat by an 8-7 score . while USC handed the flu-ridden Engineer squad a 13-1 pasting in th e final game.

Th e record of the swimming team this se m e st e r is anything bu t inspiring. It is not , howeve r, a me asure of the spirit and work involve d . Cons ide ring that the re was only one re turning lett e rman, the original outlook was poor. The fe w m e n of the team worke d hard unde r Bob Me rrick, th e ir coach, to ove rcome th e ir lack of e xp e ri e nce. Ne ve rth e les s , the great e r e xpe rie nce of the compe tin g teams was more than e ffort alone could master. During the sea son, Murphy b ecame the outstanding man O Il the squad through his e ffort s in the 220 and 440 . Ve ry appropriat ely, h e was e lect e d capta in a t the e nd of th e sea son.

Sturte vant dis tinguis h ed himse lf by swimmin g in almos t eve ry e ve nt at some lime during the season and placin g in each . Th e confe re nce m ee t was a se riou s disappointme nt. Whe n it Coach Bob Merrick was time for the mee t to begin, three men w e re laid up. Had it not b een for thi s, the s h ort e n d of a 7G -G3 ·score might have b een diffe re nt. With all of the squad e xce pt Davis re turning n e xt y ear, th e pros p e ct s of an improved te am a re ext re m e ly hopeful.
