A Clarkson Mosaic - page 243

After bad weather had forced the game in Potsdam to be postponed to the following
day, Sunday, SLU came to the rescue by allowing the two teams to play the first hockey game
ever on St. Lawrence's new Appleton Arena in Canton.
Bill not only had been a top scorer at Dartmouth with 159 points in three seasons, but
had scored five goals in the only game he ever played against Clarkson; he also had learned a
lot under the Dartmouth coach, Eddie Jeremiah. His brother, Cliff, team captain and center, had
scored 135 in three seasons, and also was learning a lot under Coach Jeremiah.
In the first period, Dartmouth scored the first two goals, Harrison getting an assist on the
second one. Clarkson rebounded with two of its own. Then, Dartmouth scored number three to
end the second period with a 3-2 lead. Period three saw Clarkson take the lead with two quick
goals, only to have Harrison tie it again for Dartmouth. Clarkson took the lead on a power play,
and added two more goals as insurance. Harrison was still buzzing around the Clarkson net as
the final buzzer sounded on Clarkson's 7-4 victory. He had scored 21 fewer points than big
brother Bill, but in the remaining 16 games of his collegiate career at Dartmouth, Cliff
surpassed his idol's record for most points scored.
Clarkson went on to win the Tri-State championship by defeating Middlebury 16-6 in
March at Lake Placid.
Ice Carnival Kings.
For the first time in its history, Ice Carnival 1951 had two kings reigning:
Murray Beach and George Kopchik; each had received 714 votes. Joan Walker was queen.
Usually, a junior member of the Minto Club of Ottawa crowned the royal pair, but this year the
honor went to a Minto Club performer with a difference. Neila Bullis, 12-year-old daughter of
Stanley Bullis '26, performed the honor, and father and daughter later appeared in two solo
numbers during the ice show. Making its 16th appearance, the Minto Club of Ottawa gave three
shows: Friday at 8:00, Saturday at 8:00, and Sunday afternoon at 2:00.
Karma, winner of the ice statue contest, received the "Founders Trophy." Its statue
consisted of a boy and girl silhouetted in front of a fireplace with ice candles on its mantle,
lighting simulating a fire in the fireplace, and ice skis resting against the mantle. This new
award donated by Andy Johnson, manager of MacManus' Restaurant, and created to honor
Murray Walker and Eunice Badger, the two responsible for starting Ice Carnival in 1931.
Fencing Team
. Eager to bring this winter sport to campus, devotees of fencing organized a
club. Purchasing their own weapons and equipment, they formed teams for each of the
weapons: épée, saber, and foil. Prof. Preston Smith of the physics department, who had fenced
at West Point, was faculty advisor. Because of his experience with that weapon at Virginia
Polytechnic Institute, Capt. McCutchen, assistant professor of military science, helped the team
Losing to St. Lawrence in their only match during the first winter of their operation, the
team hoped to build a better record in the next year with four matches, including a dual contest
with St. Lawrence, and a triangular match with Syracuse and St. Lawrence. Unfortunately, they
lost all their matches.
The Clarkson Journal.
Recognizing the need to provide an outlet for technical papers written
by faculty, and graduate and undergraduate students alike, a Technical Magazine Committee
was formed in February, and
The Clarkson Journal
was created. The first issue appeared in
May. Its editor, Alfred Tsang, stated:
