Campus Items.
Tuition for 1974-75 was raised $250 to $2,875, residence hall charges were
raised $30 per year, and dining hall charges $60. John Chapple, director of admissions, was
named dean of admissions.
Freshman applications for 1974-75 were up 18% over those of the previous years as a
result of the five-person admissions office staff visiting over 700 high schools and conducting
over 800 interviews on campus. Included in that figure was the 90% increase in applications
from women.
Over one hundred students worked for eight evenings making telephone calls to 1,205
alumni and raised $19,319 in pledges.
A hit-and-run driver struck two Clarkson freshmen as they were walking along
the east side of Route 56 near Potsdam State in the evening of January 27. James Cocca and
Matthew Dimas were hospitalized for two days but were not injured seriously. They had been
walking along Pierrepont Avenue, and when they heard a northbound car approach, they began
walking single file. The driver, a 50-year-old man from Watertown, struck the two, and then
raced off without lights; he was apprehended by police four days later.
Drug Policy Approved.
Upon recommendation of the Faculty Senate, Chancellor Graham
approved a proposed drug policy in February. Drafted by the Student Affairs Committee which
had both students and faculty as members, the policy stated that because Clarkson College and
the individuals within it are subject to federal and state laws, the College would not condone
any illegal act involving the possession, manufacture, use, or sales of controlled substances
(drugs) on its campus. That policy has remained in the
College Regulations
ever since.
Soccer Stars.
Named to the first team of the All-ICAC soccer team were seniors Cade
Lockwood as halfback and George "Chip" Allen as fullback for their outstanding performance
during Clarkson's 6-5-1 soccer record.
Blayne Hartman '74 served the soccer team well in his senior year as goalie by making
151 saves in the team's 5-5-2 record. As a junior goalie, Blayne allowed only 17 goals for a
1.42 average, and preserved five shutouts in his 12 games, including one over the highly touted
University of Rochester. Then, as team captain, he ended the season with an average of only
1.66 goals-against-a record which led him to be selected as Most Valuable Player for the team.
Rick Smith and Tom Manetta were chosen as the rookies of the year for the team.
One of the honors earned by this team was to be the first winner of the President's Cup
for soccer. (See 1973)
Late on a September evening, seven stalwart young men from Brooks I and Ross III
got the idea of "streaking" the women housed in Holcroft. Dressed only in black bow ties, high-
top sneakers, and official warm-up shorts, the seven made their way to Holcroft undetected.
