A Clarkson Mosaic - page 135

"Tech Nite" took a new form by holding a dance at the Potsdam Club with music by
the Melody Boys.
Student Drowned.
Arthur Anderson, 20, Class of 1932, from Clayton, N.Y., drowned in the St.
Lawrence River on December 24 when his outboard motorboat capsized in midstream. He tried
to swim to shore, but the water was too cold.
Green Griffin.
During 1928, Jerry Akins and Carlton Drake conceived the idea of publishing a
humorous magazine, and experimented with a six-page mimeographed burlesque of the
. After several issues were published, other students became
interested. Under the direction of Bill Faber, the
Green Griffin
appeared for the first time at
Commencement 1928 and published issues five times a year:
because that was
Clarkson's color, and
from the Clarkson coat of arms. It was established to furnish clean
and wholesome humor, and to serve as an unofficial advertising medium for Clarkson.
Later, it was chosen for membership in the Association of College Comics of the East,
which comprises the 25 leading college humor magazines. Its last issue was published in
December 1937. Bill Faber went on to start the Clarkson College Publicity Bureau, and was
instrumental in changing the Integrator from a monthly to a weekly publication.
In 1928, Clarkson got a new hockey coach, Jack Roos. Roos had played hockey for
Ottawa University back in 1918, and at the age of 19 he coached and played in the Nickel Belt
League of Northern Ontario. In and around Ottawa from 1920 to 1923, he played senior hockey
as well as football and baseball. Following a couple of seasons with Fort William in the
Thunder Bay League, Roos became a professional with the St. Paul, Minn., team.
Under this new coach, Clarkson produced its first All-American in 1928 when Freddie
Dion was chosen for that honor playing against such opponents as Army, Princeton, St.
Lawrence, Syracuse, Cornell, and Colgate. Dion scored all eight goals in Clarkson's defeat of
Princeton 8-5 in this 1927-28 season.
