and three times his teams finished second in the nation. Following the 1965-66 season, he was
voted the "Coach of the Year." He was succeeded by Jerry York, freshman hockey coach.
In his last year, he was fortunate enough to have an All-American and an All-East
player on his team, Steve Warr, a defenseman from Peterborough, Ontario, who, besides being
a stalwart defender of the area around the goal, also scored four goals and made 33 assists.
Jerry Kemp, wingman, also from Peterborough, Ontario, was named All-East for his
efforts including 24 goals and 14 assists. Jerry went on to become the leading Clarkson scorer
up to that time with 88 goals in his career from 1969-72. This record later was broken by David
Taylor '77 and Kevin Zappia '79.
Basketball All-American.
Peter Ganley, Syracuse native, candidate for All-American, was
named the ECAC Division III basketball team four times in the season. He scored 59 points, 23
rebounds, and had nine assists in two games; he hit on 26 consecutive foul shots, one short of
the Clarkson record. In his junior year, he scored 450 points to eclipse the previous junior
Former President Davis Died.
On September 19, former president Jess Davis died at his home
in Charlottesville, Virginia. He had served as Clarkson's president from 1948 to 1951, and as
president of Stevens Institute in Hoboken, New Jersey, for 21 years since his departure from
Lacrosse Trophy.
Finishing the season with an impressive record of 7-3-0, the Golden Knights
lacrosse team won the Northern USILA (United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association)
trophy, but tied Ithaca and Albany State in league play with a 4-1 record.
As a result of this record, the Golden Knights were invited to the NCAA small college
national championship playoffs at Bowling Green University, Ohio. Even though they lost 17 to
12, several members of the team won individual honors: Paul Bovee was chosen All-American
and was selected to play in the annual North-South Classic-the highest award a lacrosse player
could receive. Paul and Steve Warr were selected to the all-conference first team, and Egils
Zarins, Rich Stevens, and Gary Hickey were selected to the all-conference second team.
A Better Head.
Under the direction of Dr. Kenneth Saczalski, ME professor, students worked
to design better headgear to protect the human head. In a Dr. Frankenstein-like lab, human-like
heads decorated a table surrounded by electronic apparatus. One of them was attached to a
strange looking device called an impacter which slammed into the head, and the electronic
equipment responded with lights and graphs. Looking quite human, this headform was covered
with a rubber-like substance which simulated human skin beneath which were layers of
Fiberglas and plastic to represent the skull; filling it were various liquids that simulate the
internal contents of the human head.
Entitled "Design of an Anthropomorphic Headform for the Evaluation of Protective
Headgear," this project worked to develop a headform that would react to impact in much the
same way as the human head. This study was undertaken to provide ease and rapidity in the
evaluation of protective headgear, because the increased participation of children and adults in
such body contact sports as football and hockey established the need for simple and effective
ways to evaluate different ways to protect the human head.
