Jentes Ends Union Career
* * * *

An erstwhile painter with a yen
to be a successful lawyer and per-
haps Supreme Court Justice, Bill
Jentes, '55L, ended his year-long
career as president of the Union
Independent in politics and con-
servative in dress, the former
campus executive is decidedly a
progressive when it comes tq talk-
ing about the Union's future on

AS JENTES sees it, "The Un-
ion no longer occupies the same
top position it has held during
{he 50 years of its career.
"It has become a problem of
what to do with a building
seemingly outmoded - whether
to broaden its functions by in-
troducing more facilities for the
whole student body or to main-
tain the status quo of a strictly
man's club."
Jentes looks to the construction
of a new coed activities wing
where campus groups can be
brought together to work under
one roof as a possible solution to
the problem.
At the same time, the retiring
president feels many of the uni-
que, strictly men's activities such
as the annual Union Opera, should
THE TWO biggest problems
5 facing Jentes during the past
year, he said, were the constitu-
tion revision and the sudden
mushrooming of the Union wing
Regarding the proposed wing
he said the alumni are not
the ominous element opposing
change in the Union, they are
accused of being.
"They are not necessarily still
living in the era of '22 when they
graduated, but are willing to see
present day problems," he said.

AMONG HIS eccentricities, Jen-
tes is famous for his invariable
golfer's cap on chilly days, unique
greeting cards and invitations
which he paints himself and three
pairs of shoes-all in the same
style, two brown and one black.
The active senior describes his
habits and interests as scholar-
ly. He is fond of Cyrano de Ber-
gerae and Tschaikovsky and
does most of his studying at a
typewriter with classical records
playing on the phonograph.
Learning to play the trumpet in
the musical stage of his develop-
ment, he fears that he may have

he have to go into the army.
Independent politically because
"I can't find certain liberal ele-
ments in either party," Jentes
muses "maybe after they cut away
the McCarrans and the McCar-
thys from both . .."
Jentes spends his summers
working as a cashier or filing
clerk or going to summer school.
He expects this summer, how-
ever, to go into the army or to

When it's all over, however, it
will be law school for the retired
Union head. And then a success-
ful career, his friends predict.
