My Dear Alumni and Alumnae: It seems as though it were yesterday that we met so many of you at the Homecoming celebration. It was a wonderful day and an inspiring get-together. We did lose the football game but that did not seem to matter. In fact, the thing that struck me most ih conversing with you about the past was not the trivial things that come and go with campus life but the things that carry over into your lives after graduation. These latter experiences have helped to formulate your philosophy of life. It is, indeed, imperative that we have a proper philosophy of life to carry us through the troublesome times in which we live. In the past few weeks we have seen the whole world disturbed by the unprincipled policies of nations who refuse to live in brotherhood under God and who deny to their fellowmen their Godgiven rights. Our own country is blessed in its orientation toward God, with an acknowledgment of our trust in Him and our gratitude to Him for His many blessings bestowed upon this nation. We are particularly conscious of these advantages when we contemplate our dedication to God and our fellowmen as expressed in our university's motto. Your happiness will always be yours if this formula of service to God and country inspires your life. We inject these thoughts in this letter because by the time you receive it, we will be close to the Christmas Season with its promise of " peace to men of good will.'' This peace can be based only on love of God for Himself and of our fellowman for the sake of God. That every blessing may come to you during this blessed Christmas Season and for every day of the New Year is the wish of

Your President,

V. Rev. Andrew L. Seebold, S.M., Ph.D.

million-dollar •tory •••

Research at the University of Dayton has grown into a million dollar business. Individual projects, first begun at UD on an organized basis some seven years ago, have grown to such magnitude that a central office-the University of Dayton Research Centerhas been set up to handle the rapidly expanding service. Announcement of the formation of the Research Center came September 1 from the Very Rev. Andrew L. Seebold, SM, UD president. As Fr. Seebold pointed out, the center becomes a part of the recently organized Community Service Center, together with the Division of Specialized Educational Services, discussed in the September issue of THE ALUMNUS. The Research Center will centralize the negotiation and administration of research services performed by the university for government and industry. At present, the majority of work being done on the campus in the various research projects is under government sponsorship. Research activities on the campus-over and above the individual projects which have been undertaken by a number of the faculty-are centered in several "projects." These include " Project Globe" and "Project Delta," the two largest research ventures; an electrical engineering department project and. a psychology department project. Delta's primary effort is centered in classified experimental programs. Project Globe is engaged in computation and data reduction. The electrical engineering department is experimenting and evaluating tubes, transistors and other semiconductors. The psychology department is conducting research in human engineering problems.

The Research Picture at


THE PRESENT research program actually began in 1949 when data processing and computational services were initiated by Fr. Charles Collins and several members of the mathematics department. This was the beginning of Project Globe. In 1952, Dr. Kenneth C. Schraut, chairman of the mathematics department, organized Project Delta. Both have grown rapidly. At the present time, the university is performing work under some twenty research and development contracts. These are being sponsored by the Department of the Air Force, the Department of the Navy and several industrial organizations. The greatest portion of the research activities is sponsored by the Wright Air Development Center. UD's proximity to this center of the Air Force's research program has contributed largely to the success of the university's research activity.

by John C. Bramlage Jack Bramlage, a UD grad of the of '52, is an administrative assistant in the newly organized Research Center on the campus.


Research activities at the university are highly diversified and extend into practically all fields of physical science. More work in the fields of the social and biological sciences are in the plans of the research center. Because of the great diversification in the research programs, personnel now employed on various projects include aeronautical, chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineers; physicists, chemists, statisticians and psychologists; electronic, mechanical and instrumentation technicians; artists, draftsmen, and photographers. Wherever possible and feasible, personnel requirements for the different projects are filled by utilizing qualified members of the faculty and student body on a part-time basis. Some twenty-five faculty members and 300 students are working on various projects in addition to the forty-five full-time personnel.

Many students have been helped financially through parttime work on the projects and many have gained valuable experience from solving actual engineering problems involved in the research. As a result many students with experience on UD's research projects have received credit for the experience and obtained better offers from employers upon graduation. Project work also has been to the advantage of the faculty since it has helped enable them to gain practical experience and keeps them abreast of the latest developments in a number of fields. It also provides supplementary remuneration for faculty members enabling them to receive a total yearly salary that is more competitive with salary scales of other organizations, thus encouraging more educators to remain in the teaching profession.

Thousands of Dollars Fiscal Years 1949-1956















DOLLARWISE, research at UD has grown at an unbelievable rate. As the graph shows at a glance, growth has been steady and now has a value 273 times the original value when first begun in 1949. Here are the figures: 1949 ............................................................ $ 3,821 1950 ............................................................ 26,042 1951 ............................................................ 34,361 1952 ............................................................ 272,721 1953 ............................................................ 862,589 1954 ···························································· 809,571 1955 ............................................................ 962,624 1956 ............................................................ 1,045,276 EIGHT-YEAR TOTAL ..........................$4,017,006 Heading the center is John R. Westerheide, '47, who, prior to this appointment, was director of Project Delta. Mr. Westerheide joined the staff of the University in January, 1952, and was one of the original members of the Project Delta group established at that time by Dr. Schraut. Before returning to UD, Mr. Westerheide was associated with the General Electric Company in the positions of test, design and commercial engineer. Another alumnus, John C. Bramlage, '52, is assistant to the director. Mr. Bramlage was formerly a counselor with the UD Guidance Center. His duties as assistant to Mr. Westerheide include the responsibility for conducting routine contract negotiations with the sponsors of various research contracts and maintaining necessary controls and records on security, personnel and project accounting. Still another alumnus, also of the class of 1952, is a member of the center's administrative staff. He is Gerald E. Busch, property administrator. Mr. Busch conducts all purchasing for the projects, maintains the necessary controls on government and industrial property and administers the Facilities Contract which has been negotiated between the U.S. Air Force and the university. Property purchased by the university or on

During October and November, the Research Center was awarded govemmental and industrial contrads totalll,.. $294,815.00.

loan to the university for research work has increased steadily until it now exceeds $350,000 in value. Included in this equipment is an electronic computer, automatic data processing equipment, three-specially designed laboratory vans which are utilized on field operations, and specialized instrumentation equipment. Mr. Busch has been on the university's staff since graduation. He held an administrative position on Project Delta prior to his present appointment. Administrative offices for the Research Center are located on the first floor of St. Mary's Hall where the large conference room was formerly located. With space at a premium on the campus, the conference room during the past summer was subdivided into a smaller conference room and three offices for the Research Center. Research projects themselves are scattered throughout the campus, utilizing any space available. Project groups are located on the second floor of the Albert Emanuel Library, in the basement of St. Joseph's and Chaminade Halls, in Liberty Hall, the basement of the Old Gym and in the mechanical engineering laboratory. In succeeding issues of THE ALUMNUS, we hope to present reports on some of the individual projects which make up the million dollar research story on the UD campus. FOR OUR COUNTRY to maintain a high standard of living, a healthy economy and its position as a world power, it is necessary that the educational institutions of this country take an aggressive approach in the advancement and dissemination of knowledge through education and research. By establishing a central organization to administer and coordinate organized research, the University of Dayton hopes to meet more effectively its obligations to the community and to the nation.


UD SPORTS PEP'S PEEPS Sam Andre's Street & Smith Publication, always a leader in the football preview field, stepped into the basketball picture this year with a top-flight publication covering the nation's colleges. S & S ranked the Flyers third in preseason forecasts while Dell publications spotted Dayton lOth . Tom Blackburn would settle for either rating right now. The magazines are on your newsstands.

"Little" Dayton is still supplying fine talent to the pro football ranks. Jimmy Katcavage, co-captain of the 1955 team, is having a fine rookie season with the defensive unit of the New York Giants. Chuck Noll, also an ex-co-captain, is doing a fine job with the Cleveland Browns although the Brownies slumped this year. Katcavage's co-captain Jack Muldowney is in the Army at Ft. Knox, Ky. Big Mo is playing with the Knox grid team and expects to play pro ball after his discharge. Also at Knox are Lts. Johnny Bettinger and Bob Jacoby. Both are just beginning their Army service.

Jimmy (Power Tower) Paxson, No. 1 draft choice of the Minnepolis Lakers, is making a name in the pro basketball ranks. Paxson has been highly acclaimed by the Laker's front office and his performance on the court is making an impression on the entire league. Don (Monk) Meineke is trying to "retire" from basketball and if his will power is strong enough, Monk won't return to the court. He's working in Dayton with Butler Heating.

Kerr's "Reckless Rascals" May Be Step Forward In Football Rebuilding Plan Brooklyn's familiar cry, "Wait until next year," is slipping into the University of Dayton football picture. Actually Bud Kerr's rebuilding program probably won't be hitting on all cylinders until 1958, but the promise of wide-open, daring football appears to be nearer at hand. In fact, the 1957 club could become Kerr's "reckless rascals" if Dayton can hang onto a fair number of the flashy frosh that thrilled crowds this fall. The Flyers have a fine start up front in the rebuilding program and if they can come up with the backfield speed promised by the frosh, quarterback Don (Butch) Zimmerman will be able to give the Kerr offense a real whirl. Dayton was stacked with sophomores up front this season. Emil Karas, the rangy left tackle; Bill Korutz, 219-pound center, and 238-pound John Stolte at right tackle were first stringers at the beginning and Jerry Raiff, glue-fingered, converted fullback, took over right end in the stretch. Left guard AI Shanen and right tackle AI W eckle were the only seniors to command starting spots once junior Gary Krause took over right guard. The Flyers' top pass receiver, Fred Dugan, a junior, returns to left end next season so only Shanen's spot is wide open on the first team. The Flyers still have big Ron Finotti returning to guard. Finotti was a starter at the beginning of the season but an ankle injury that remained chronic limited his action. Kerr will also have experienced varsity players available for backstopping the line and if the frosh produce even a handmajorette, is one of our co-eds across the nation in line for the honor. SPORT Magazine conducts the contest each year. Drop a card to SPORT at 205 East 42 Street, New York 17, N.Y., and tell them you wish to cast your vote for Dayton's Ruth Berner for Campus Queen.

Pioneering in the football field apparently isn't a dead issue. Bobby Recker, former Flyer star halfback, opened football competition for DeSales High in Toledo as the school's first head football coach. Now a teammate of Recker's, Joe Malloy, a guard on the Flyers' 1951 Salad Bowl team, is slated to do the same thing at Covington (Ky.) Catholic. Malloy, recently discharged from service, will conduct a spring training program in an effort to mold the school's first football team for next fall.

Don lllutchl Zimmerman

ful of lineman, Dayton may improve its woefully weak depth situation. Key returning backs will be Claude Chaney, Dave Huber and Gerry Faust. Fullback Frank Pinn may get to finish his senior year and Dayton could use his power. However, the Army may call Pinn. Chaney and Huber give Dayton a starting nucleus at the halfback posts and Faust can give Zimmerman a hand at quarterback. If the two frosh quarterbacks, Mel Smolik and Pat Connor, come through, Faust may move back to end. The jump from freshman to varsity is a tremendous one, but the Flyer frosh had speed galore in halfbacks Ernie White, Bill Gallagher, Bob Narke, and George Burdell, as well as in fullbacks Joe Dillon and Jack Parnell. Speed can't overcome inexperience, but Kerr and his staff will have something to start with in building the 1957 team. The key once again will be Zimmerman. A sound Zimmerman is one of the best in the nation and a sound Zimmerman can take Dayton a long way down the road to football fame.

U.D. Office Compiles Ohio Grid Records As a service to Ohio's sports writers and announcers the University of Dayton Public Relations Office has compiled a book of outstanding records of Ohio's college football teams. The book, produced after five years of research, contains outstanding performances of individual players in a single game, single season and career and top team performances in single games and over a season. Ohio is the only state in the union to have such a record book. The bulk of the tallying work was done by Miss Dee McAnespie of the PR Office. The book, in pamphlet form, was printed through the efforts of John Chaney, former Flyer end, and Tom Zimmerman of C. W. Zimmerman construction firm.

lackbun Rev...-.'56-57 Flyers For What May Be Toaghest Seasoa This could be Tommy Blackburn's toucheat season as Flyer buketball coach. It's the second straight rebuilding year and Blackburn will have to refashion his club without the aid of great height. For the put six aeuona with tall Johnny Horan or seven-foot Bill Uhl around the buket the Flyers have had a great height advantage. Tallest of the Flyers counted on to play a major role this year ia 6'8" Jimmy Palmer. After that the Flyers taper off to around 6'6". Palmer, however, ia one of the greatest jumpers in college basketball and the other Flyers have never been bashful about boundinc around the bankboards. Palmer, a senior, and the smooth, jumpshot artist, Arlen Boekhorn, 6'4" pard, are the only two starters returning. Departing with Uhl from last year's first five were Capt. Jimmy Puaon and Ray Dieringer. Key to the Flyer picture may be a virtual unknown-at least to the general basketball public. He's 6'6" Al Sicking, senior who will take Ubl'a spot in the pivot. While Sicking is "unknown" in the national picture he's far from that locally. Flyer fans have seen him pull a number of games out of the fire the past two seasons with his accurate shooting. In the only full pme Sicking played he pulled off 26 rebounds, one ahy of the school record. Sicking, Palmer and Bockhorn are likely to be three of the five starters although Blackburn has voiced the opinion that he may have an "eight-man starting team" this aeaaon. The starters from came to came could be determined by personnel of the opposition and performance of individual Flyera in the previous came. Eight lettermen and two sophomores eompriae the

AI Slckl..

entire squad, smallest in years. The only sophomores are Paul Shafer, 6' pard, and Ray Atherton, 6'9" center, who appears a year away. There will be plenty of scrapping for the other two starting spots. Jack McCarthy, lean 6'6" junior, and Bill Almaahy, 6'4" sharpshooting senior, will tangle for the other forward. Certain to give Bockhorn a tuule at cuard are the little ICooter, Carmen Riazzi, senior, and Don (Night Train) Lane, junior who may be the surprise package of the aeuon. The other letterman, Diek Bogenrife, will play all three poaitiona. It can be a lone aeuon for the Flyers but an intereating one and the "unknown" Sicking can brichten the picture.


leperted Killed In ~ Popular Andy Zulli, former Flyer football center, was reported killed in Germany in September while in the service of his country. Details were lacking but the ex-Flyer's parents were informed that their aon "Lt. Andy Zulli was killed in a military vehicle accident."

'round and 'bout

the campus ENROLLMENT AT UD in September reached another all-time high with a total of 5,725 students registered, a better than ten per cent increase over last year's 5,065. Day classes drew 3,134, with 2,591 signed up in the evening division, 500 of whom are in non-credit "feature" courses. Here's how the divisions rank, numerically: business administration746 day, 634 night; engineering-721 day, 326 night; education-576 day, 305 night; arts-462 day, 248 night; science-408 day, 240 night; technical institute-221 day, 338 night. In the day classes, there are 1,245 freshmen, 720 sophomores, 564 juniors and 458 seniors. And there are 2,584 men and 550 coeds 'round and 'bout the campus during the daytime.

THE ALUMNUS went to press too soon to compare this with the nation--wide results, but in a straw vote of UD students taken in late October, Eisenhower downed Stevenson by a two-to-one margin, 910 to 450 votes. When a similar straw vote was taken in 1952, the campus results were very similar to the subsequent election returns across the country. Voting machines were used in the polling and for the first time in UD history, the homecoming queen and her attendant were elected by use of voting machines. UNIVERSITY OF DAYTON has been granted $1,000 by the Dayton Rotary Club Foundation to use for student aid. The gift will be added to an $8,865 fund established two years ago for long-term loans to needy students who had completed the first year. UD was one of four area colleges receiving the Rotary gift.

THE UD PLAYERS, now operating under Fr. Charles Preisinger's speech and drama department, have returned to the stage of the Dayton Art Institute for their productions. Their first presentation of the year, "Detective Story," under the direction of Pat Gilvary, '50, played late last month. FIRST WINNER of the Joseph Westendorf scholarship to UD is Sally M. Bring-


man, a 1956 graduate of Julienne high school, who has enrolled in an arts course. The scholarship was established in memory of Mr. Westendorf, an alumnus of 1886. In his second year on the Harry F. Finke ('02) scholarship is Ronald F. Koesters of Dayton, now a sophomore in engineering.

STUDENTS AND FACULTY demonstrated an exceptional public spirit in their support of the recent Dayton Community Chest campaign. The student body, at a special assembly, contributed $917 to which the student council and individual classes added enough to make an even $1,000. The faculty and staff contributed $1,508.25 or 169 per cent of the quota. Both sums gave UD 277 per cent of the quota. Mason C. Benner, '92, development director, headed the campus committee for the campaign.

GRADUATE AND ALUMNI placement is now being handled by the division of specialized educational services under the direction of John B. Steinbruegge. A number of positions are available which alumni are invited and encouraged to investigate. A listing of such opportunities may be found on page 19. Mr. Steinbruegge also encouraged alumni, who wish to hire personnel, to file such notice with him in order that alumni and graduating seniors may be informed of interesting offers.

NOTES: Harold Nielsen, prior to 1951 a member of the mechanical engineering faculty at UD, has returned to the campus as head of the ME department, after serving five years with the city of Dayton as superintendent of the building inspection division . . . Miss Mary Tuite, friend of countless U D alumni, has changed jobs. She's now assistant to the director of admissions, after twenty years as assistant to the registrar . • • Miss Kathleen Whetro, dean of women, also has a new assistant. She's Mrs. June Benner, wife of UD's development director, Mason Benner ...

UD's 1956 engineering graduates who underwent the State Board of Registration exam in July were 100 per cent successful. State-wide results show that only 291 of the 409 taking the exam were successful. Sixteen June graduates in civil, electrical and mechanical engineering were tested.

Oelman Heads Associate Board New president of the Associate Board of Lay Trustees at the University of Dayton is Robert S. Oelman, executive vice president of the National Cash Register Co. Mr. Oelman was elected to this post at the board's reorganization meeting held late in September. At the same meeting, two good friends of the university-one of them an alumnus-were named new members of the board for six year terms. They were H. W. "Whitey" Gillaugh, president of the Third National Bank and Trust Co., who served as general chairman during the recent development fund campaign, and William J. Kuntz, '14, president of the Peter Kuntz Co., who served as chairman of the corporation and special gifts division during the campaign. Mr. Oelman, a member of the board since 1952, succeeds Samuel Finn in the presidency. Mr. Finn remains a member. Other officers of the board were renamed to their positions: David L. Rike, vice president; Merle P. Smith, secretary, and Walter H. J. Behm, treasurer.

"AMONG OUR ALUMNI" Weinstein Directs Congregation's Educational Unit

Two UD Men Get Air Force Commendation Two University of Dayton alumni, staff members of the Air Force Overseas Employment Office in Los Angeles, have received high commendation from the Secretary of the Air Force for outstanding recruiting and public relations work.

Dr. Hochwalt Wins Chemical Award

Heading the educational program of the Congregation Beth Y eshurun in Houston, Texas is a younger graduate of UD's education division, Joshua Weinstein, '53. Appointed educational director of the congregation just over a year ago, Weinstein guides a highly-interesting program. The Beth Yeshurun schools include "Beth Hayeled" (The House of the Child), devoted to the development of effective bicultural education of Jewish children in their early childhood years; the Foundation School, for children on the first and second grade levels; the Hebrew School, designed to teach boys and girls to read, speak and write Hebrew and includes studies of the Bible, Jewish history, customs and ceremonies, arts and crafts and Jewish current events; a Sunday school and a Sabbath school. In addition to these schools for the youth of the congregation, Weinstein also directs an adult education program, offering classes in Hebrew, the Bible, history, child psychology and a lecture series by prominent guest speakers. The bi-cultural, bi-lingual experiment being conducted in the day school by Weinstein is one of the few such instances in the country where a second language (Hebrew) is introduced to four-to-eight year olds. "Our success in this has exceeded all expectations. Our children chat Hebrew, read Hebrew fluently, sing Hebrew songs. The introduction of the second language broadened the horizons of our children and intensified their studies in all other areas," he comments. In spite of his heavy work load, the UD grad is attending night classes at the University of Houston, working toward his doctorate in education.

One of UD's most distinguished alumni, Dr. Carroll A. Hochwalt, '20, has been named winner of the 1956 Midwest Award of the American Chemical Society's St. Louis section. Dr. Hochwalt, vice president for research, development and engineering of the Monsanto Chemical Company, is the twelfth recipient of the award, given annually for "meritorious contributions to the advancement of pure or applied chemistry or chemical education." He was cited at the November 5 presentation of the award "for scientific achievement, for leadership in industrial research and for contributions to the dignity of the scientist as a citizen." A member of UD's associate board of lay trustees, Dr. Hochwalt has more than 70 patented discoveries to his credit. He has been a Monsanto vice president since 1947.

Robert S. Boyd, '42, chief of the Los Angeles office, and Edward Q. Malloy, '35, assistant chief, were commended for efforts "beyond the call of normal duties." The two alums, who began working together during World War II in the personnel division of the Air Materiel Command, have held first place among 27 overseas recruiting offices since 1952. They have processed four times the average number of personnel shipments by other offices and six times the average number in critical shortage categories. After leaving AMC at the end of World War II, Boyd and Malloy became affiliated with the Air Force's Directorate of Civilian Personnel where together they directed the world-wide network of 65 overseas recruiting offices. Boyd transferred to Los Angeles in 1952 and Malloy in 1953 when they developed the Los Angeles recruiting office. Both are living in West Westchester, a Los Angeles suburb.

UD ALUMNI form a good portion of the staffs of a number of Dayton businesses and industries. One local firm which has its share of alums is the Standard Register Company, a close friend of UD since the company was founded in 1912 by John Q. Sherman, one of the early chairmen of UD's associate board of lay trustees. A current member of the board is M. A. Spayd, president of the company. William P. Sherman, assistant secretary of the company, is a member of the national alumni board. Wohlleben Hall, now under construction on the campus, will contain the John Q. and William C. Sherman Memorial Lecture Hall, a gift to the university from the Sherman Family and the Sherman-Standard Register Foundation. On these pages are seen a representative group of the men and women who are helping carry on the UD tradition at Standard Register. In succeeding issues, we hope to present reports on other firms, both in and out of Dayton, where UD alumni have gathered. UD men In Standard's Pacific division Include Mark Smith, '35, left, general sales manager, and Wilbur Dunsky, '31, manager of sales training.

Marianist Award To Legion Head University of Dayton's seventh annual Marianist A ward will go to Frank Duff of Ireland, founder and international head of the Legion of Mary. Presentation of the silver plaque, given yearly "for outstanding service to the Mother of God," will take place at the annual alumni Mass in the UD chapel Dec. 8. Mr. Duff, who will come to Dayton to accept the award personally, founded the Legion of Mary in Dublin, Ireland, in 1921. The Legion is an association of Catholic laymen whose purpose is to sanctify its members, to assist the clergy in bringing fallen away Catholics back to the Church, to seek new converts and to intensify Catholic life. The award was established in 1950 to commemorate the triple centenary of the coming of the Marianists to the United States; the death of their founder, the Very Rev. William Joseph Chaminade, and the founding of UD by the Marianists.
