DEDICATED TO . . .
. . . Mrs. Lillian Case Hitchler
Her home is in Milwaukee,iWisconsin. Those who work with
her on student publications perhaps know her best. She is a
person who during her four years at Adrian has shown true
loyalty to her college, her studentsnand her colleagues., She
is Mrs. Lillian Case Hitchler, professor of Journalism and
English. 4 4' L' ' .L ' , i
Besides serving as advisor on' the College World and Mound,
she writes a weekly column for the Michigan Christian Ad-
vocate, handles college publicity forthe city paper, supervises
news releases and the news bureau, is chairman of the Publica-
tions Council and Student Publications Committee. She is a
member of the Adrian chapter ofthe American Association
of University Women, Business and Professional Women,
Wesleyan Guild of the Methodist Church, Vice President of
the Lenawee County Humane Society, Sponsor of Press Club,
Honorary member of Pi Delta Phi at Adrian College. Be-
sides these activities, she is chairman of the committee design-
ated to further the work on the Adrian College Album begun
by Dr. Feeman. These activities are in addition to her journal-
ism classes and her freshman English class this semester.
Mrs. Hitchler takes a personal interest in each one of her stu-
dents. She offers them guidance and encouragement. She
works hard and puts in many long hours to accomplish many
of her tasks. Her keen sense of humor can be guaranteed by
anyone who knows her, and she can keep a secret as completely
as she can publicize in print whatever college project is as-
She has the respect of all who know her. Never thrusting
advice upon anyone, she can always be depended upon to re-
spond with helpful guidance, regardless of the problem pre-
sented before her. Students can well be proud to have studied
under her, and many will long remember her. It is with sin-
cere pleasure that the 1951 Mound is formally dedicated to a
truly outstanding person, Mrs. Lillian Case Hitchleri

"One of the classic phrases of our American
tradition was uttered by Daniel Webster in
his plea before the Supreme Court on behalf
of Dartmouth College. After a masterful array
of the facts in the case he concluded with this
impassioned appeal: 'lt is, Sir, as has been
said, a small college: but there are those ot
us who love it.'
"There are those of us who are equally devoted
to the church-related college, believing that it
has an important role in our contemporary
society. It is this college that exalts a Chris-
tian philosophy of life, that maintains a Chris-
tian morality in conduct, and that preserves a
Christian freedom for thought, all of which
are essential to the preservation of our civiliza-

- At Adrian they come from all walks of life
and from various countries, states and
cities. They may have varied interests,
but all have the same common goal
Upon entering college they make up many
organizations and take part in all the
activities offered on campus.
Students become part of a great family of
work, study, and fun. They learn to know
and respect everything about the college.
Four years, or even two, is something hard
to forget, but so wonderful to remember.
Students learn every phase of college life.
They know its griefs and joys. "Into each
life a little rain must fall," but after the

SAMUEL I. HARRISON
A very cordial and amiable person de-
scribes Samuel I. Harrison, the president
of a friendly college. He came to us
in 1940 from Albion College, where he
served as professor of religion. Dr.
Harrison has now completed his tenth
year of service to the students and fa-
culty at Adrian College.
Upon entering Adrian, Dr. Harrison be-
gan at once to develop the student
"self-help" plan, which has placed
Adrian in a unique position among the
nation's schools. The program, which
offers stud-ents 15 hours of work a week
at the base rate of 6547 an hour, has
grown steadily. Since 1940, almost
S500,000 has been paid out to student
Under Dr. Harrison's leadership many
changes have taken place on campus.
South Hall and the Chapel were redec-
orated and the Old Science Hall was
made into the library. Executive of-
fices were added to North Hall, and
the Cornelius Memorial House, oc-
cupied by the ATO fraternity, was
built. Another "first" was established
with the completion and occupancy of
the Tobias Home Economics Houes this
Through the encouragement of Dr.
Harrison, many things have happened
at Adrian College, and the future will
probably bring many more.

care of many events and is a willing and

We greet them as scared new freshmen-eager to learn and
do what is expected of us. By our sophomore year we begin
to understand that they too, are human, and We find they
can joke with us and help us with our Work and problems.
They understand us far better than we understand them,
but we are all striving to accomplish our goals in life, and
without their instruction and help, many students would not
attain their achievements.

The Senior Class of '51 was very busy completing its last year at Adrian
College. More than half of its members were practice teaching, besides
working, participating in extra-curricular activities, and doing school Work.
Despite the work of graduating, the class put on the Thanksgiving dance
called the "Crystal Ball," which was semi-formal. This Was the highlight of
the year-the seniors went all out on decorations, creating an oriental room
mysteriously lighted in blue. The entertainment was centered around the
great Swami Abou el Dassein, who engaged three talented seniors to help
his act: Bette Davis sang: Bill Goodrich and crew imitated Spike Tones: and
Ioyce Damon put on a tap dance routine. The Tecumseh Chieftains furnished
the music for the dance.
The final exams, then Baccalaureate, and iinally Commencement, made the
last week in the life of the college seniors hectic, exciting, happy, and very
sad, for it was the last time most of them will graduate. Now the young men
and women are ready to begin their careers.

Wiener roasts, toboggan parties, record dances,
rollerskating parties directed by the juniors,
earned them the title of being the most "social-
minded" class on campus.
Under the leadership of president Iordan latrou,
the juniors were successful in every undertak-
ing. With an interest for the Welfare of the
students, they offered entertainment- for the
needed relaxation from studies.
On April 21, the juniors gave an informal
dance. Each class gave a skit during inter-

awarded a Skip Day. '

The sophomore class, under the able direction
of president William Gephart, had many diffi-
culties to overcome. With many fonner stu-
dents not returning, the situation of size Was a
main factor in accomplishments. However, in
spite of this, the sophpmores rallied enough to
present their annual St. Valentine Dance,
"Kupid's Kapers," on February 16. Bill Carter
and band furnished the music for dancing, and
a novel tune-guessing contest was conducted
Vice-president Madelon Leech and secretary-
treasurer, Blaire Minier, helped the president
with the various duties of the sophomore class.

our daily life includes
Each student on campus has many inter-
ests in the activities offered by the
college. Regardless of the full load of
classes, every student finds time in which
to participate in some form of activity.
With each organization on campus many
social events are planned for mem-
bers, and in many cases, the Whole
campus is included. Every field of interest
has been covered, and each person par-
ticipating receives many benefits
from all that is offered.
A well-rounded education includes not only
the academic life but also the so-
cial life. The friendly atmosphere of
Adrian College is further encouraged in the

sorority on campus.
This year the Council sponsored
the annual college Christmas
dance. "The Snowflake Swirl".
It awards the scholarship and
athletic plaques to the fratemity
holding the highest average dur-
ing the year. One of the activi-
ties which were introduced last
year was setting aside one week
and entitling it "Greek Week."
During that week a series of

Chi Psi Omega
Organized on October 13, 1945, by a group of seven
girls who felt a need tor a social sorority to be es-
tablished on campus, Chi Psi Omega was formed.
Its purpose is to develop character and personality
intellectually, morally and socially: and to maintain a
bond of friendship among its members. The colors of
the sorority are pearl and green, and the organization-
al tlower is the white tea rose. A
Each October an open tea is held, at which time girls
desiring to pledge may attend. Following this, many
activities take place as the girls go through pledging.
The pledges organize and sponsor one event during
pledging. This year a successful record dance was
held following a basketball game. Other activities
for the year included a hayride, card parties, bowling
parties, teas, and the annual closed spring formal.
Graduation usually takes many members, but at present
there are eleven active sorority members. The officers

Once a year a group of students gather together to prepare the annual yearbook.
These students are the unsung heroes who spend many hours planning all the
details that make up a yearbook. Limitless time is spent in writing and rewriting,
taking pictures and working on different layouts. Cooperation and unity are neces-
sary at all times, and with the efforts put forth, the Mound is presented. The college
students will review the Mound as experiences during their coll-ege days, but for
those who spent the days and hours in preparing the yearbook, it will be looked
upon as their successful contribution to Adrian College.

Colleges and universities throughout the
country this year have felt the long arm
of Uncle Sam reach out and grab
its manpower. Adrian was no exception.
Athletic Director Lyman Abbott was
recalled to active Army duty, which set
the athletic program on its heels.
His assistant coach Iohn Darnton, however,
stepped into his shoes and kept the
plant rolling. '
As one of the smallest' of the six MIAA
schools, Adrian still fielded seven
athletic teams this year. They included
football, basketball, cross-country,
baseball, track, tennis, and golf.
Co-eds under the tutelage of Coach Ioan
Stepp went through another successful
year in their sports program. They
captured the city championship title in
basketball, and went to the state
recreational tournaments at Highland
Park. A play day which brought in senior
girls from the surrounding high schools
also proved successful for the girls.
Men and women students who were not
suited for varsity competition participated
actively in the wide range intramural
program at Adrian this year. Such recre-
ational sports as touch football, basket-
ball, volleyball, badminton, softball,
and tennis were offered.
With the funds now available for the com-
pletion of the Civic Auditorium newly
acquired from the city, the future outlook
for a bigger and better equipped
program is in sight.
No matter what sport or recreational activity
the students of Adrian participated in,
there still remains that sound gentle-
manly code of sportsmanship which
truly symbolizes the typical small college
campus such as Adrian College.

lf a poll were taken to determine the most hard luck football team last season, Adrian College would
probably take top honors.
More than Z0 Bulldog gridders at one time or another were sidelined due to injuries suffered in the lop-
sided football campaign. Such veteran performers as Al Checkler, Gerald Rice, Ken Stepp, and Howard
Herman served time on the b:nch as a result of injuries. The plague started after the Homecoming
game with Alma, whlch saw the Scots narrowly edge a fighting Adrian squad 7-0. Alma went on to
take the championship. One by one the players dropped off, which resulted in defeats by Albion 33-6,
Kalamazoo 35-6, Hope 39-6, Hillsdale 35-2, and Gannon College of Erie, 31-0.
ln the season opener Adrian looked like a championship outfit when they drubbed Olivet 28-U. Detroit
Tech offered their second and final victory of the year. '
Uncle Sam also made his bid to the football picture, taking into active service Lyman Abbott, head foot-
ball coach for the past four years at Adrian. Into his shoes stepped a former Adrian College star,
athlete Iohn Darnion, who had served as Abbott's assistant. There was never a dull moment for the
young coach, as he strove to overcome the insurmountable injury list.
Yes, the Bulldogs' growl was simmered to a mere whisper over a year of hardship, but the will to win
despite all obstacles still held the team together, a spirit which traditionally characterizes the athletic
teams both past and present at Adrian College.

made itself known by ripping through Olivet 72-44 to start the come-back trail. Three more victories fol-

watching in the future.
This year Adrian met Albion, Alma, Calvin, Hillsdale, Bowling Green,
the University of Detroit, and Toledo. They also competed in the MIAA
Field Day at Kalamazoo.
During the l950 cross-country season a small Pennsylvania lad named
Tom Hewitt broke all existing MIAA records when he toured the four-mile
course in 20 minutes 7 seconds. Below left he is shown coming across
the finish line in good form while Monte Ocha barks off the record
time. Hewitt transferred to Penn State the second semester.

a practice performance for Coach Darnton. Woodward, however, special-

leap is 6'2," which broke the Albion Alumni Field record in l95O. He
also holds the Kazoo Angell Field mark with a jump of 6'l".
Adrian's one-man track team, George Henry, Cbottom rightl clears the bar

Baseball, the main sport at Adrian in the spring, got off to a slow start
as did the other sports because of the weather.
Coach Gregg Arbaugh, who took over the squad this year, had ten
lettermen to help mold his team. The big question marks that Arbauqh
had to face were finding capable men to fill the first base and short
stop positions. Hugh Moran and Howard Yost helped solve the first
base question, and Monte Ocha took over the short stop worries.
Ralph Bennett and Iohn Cavas came through with some terrific pitching,
which helped make up for the loss of Gerald Rice, due to scholastic
Behind the plate were veterans Maynard Clark and Iordan Iatrou with
freshman Ronald Willnow also helping with the backstop chores.
Richard Nims and Arthur Antonelli rounded out the infield.
Outfielders William Iacobs, George Osenko, Philip Wigent, and Earl
Wilke took care of the outer defenses.
Besides meeting all five MIAA teams, the Bulldogs also took on the

Tennis had four returning veterans in William Bateman, Richard Hockins,
Thomas Lennard and Dennis Martin, who helped bolster the squad.
New candidates that fared well for their first season were Iames Bowden,
Robert Presnal, and Edward Winters,
The net men met all of the MIAA teams.
Golf also had its problems that had to be overcome. Lack of man-
power was the big drawback. There were only two lettermen back
for the 1951 season, Tom Gilman and Earl Wilke. Help on the fairways
was supplied by Robert Freydl, Richard Goodrich, Kenneth Horwath.

won the Adrian City League Basketball Tournament. This victory
led to representing the city in the Michigan Recreation Tournament

Detroit team that seemed to have options on both baskets. They
hung up the basketball uniforms and took over the tennis courts
with one objective in mind-to win the Women's Michigan Inter-
collegiate Tennis Tournament at Hillsdale.

Touch football attracted cr great amount
of interest, and the men were surprised

Softball, along with football and soccer, is one of the favorites
of the girls at Adrian. Here are a couple of pictures showing
action from the second basernan's eyes and from an onlooker
who sees the crack of the bat send the ball soaring.
Fancy plays and tricky pass patterns are not
an uncommon sight during the intramural
touch football season' on the gridiron across
from North Hall. The ATO Gold squad de-
feated the defending champion SAE team to
take the crown for this year. They received
the annual brown jug for the honor. Many
muscles have ached after a hard-fought game
which many people say is not irough.
IN TEAM URALS
Oh. my aching shin! It may look like fun.
but when a player mistakes your shin for a
ball you may get a different impression of the
game in soccer. Bad weather conditions kept
most of the soccer teams from playing their
whole schedules. This left the championship
wideppen, so the title was ,waived since the
season wasn't fully completed.
The most popular sport in the intramural pros
gram at Adrian is basketball. Fratemal rivalry
has kept the sport above the- standard. Pic-
tured at left is the ACC 'quintet battling to
overthrow a favored ATO team. Both teams
marched through all comers in the semi-final
round to play each other ina the finals. The
ATO outfit outclassed the Commoners to take
the undisputed championship. They were the
first frat to take the crown in over four years.
Intramural Director "Bud" Bennett is shown
handing ATO captain Dick Nims the champion-
ship trophy. His jubilant teammates watch
with smiling faces as Nims accepts the award.
When the snow leaves the ground and the
smell of spring fills the air, students start
priming for the opening of the softball season.

diamond, where a temper or two have been
