The school year 1941-42, the fourth year of the administration of Dr. John Wirt
Dunning, saw the culmination of many years of constructive planning on the part of
the administration, students, and friends of Alma College. On October 9, 1941, the
long awaited college chapel was dedicated and began what will undoubtedly be a
long and useful life as a place of daily worship for both the students and faculty of
Upon the opening of the first semester the administration was faced with the tre-
mendous problem of carrying on under the handicap of a reduced enrollment due to
the war situation. The registration in September was approximately 80 less than that
of the same month of the previous year and as the year went on this situation steadily
became worse as one student after another dropped out of school to answer the
call to arms.
During the past turbulent months, when the government's attitude toward the student
seemed to change from day to day, Dr. Dunning has devotedly taken upon himself
the task of keeping the men of the college informed of all developments which affect
them. At the end of this school year many of the men of Alma College find themselves
deeply grateful for the unselfish effort made by President Dunning and the adminis-
tration in aiding some in obtaining educational deferments and in recommending
others for higher positions in the various branches of the armed forces.
In addition to these more tangible activities, President Dunning has also acted as a
most helpful and sympathetic counselor to the students, beset by the numerous prob-
lems thrust upon them by the present critical situation.
Still another duty of the president of a college is to act as the representative of the
college to the public at large. Dr. Dunning has not only acted as an efficient
coordinator between those who support the college and the college itself, but has
represented the college to many groups, organizations, and individuals in such a way
as to foster the best interests of the school.
PRESIDENT AND FIRST LADY
ln September, Dr. and Mrs. Dunning celebrated the fourth anniversary of their moving
into the president's house on the Alma campus.
Since their coming to Alma from Kalamazoo in 1938, Alma's president and first lady
have frequently acted as a most gracious host and hostess to the many noted guests
of the college, as well as to faculty and student groups.
Mrs. Dunning, an Alma alumna herself, has for several years played an important
part in women's organizations both on the campus and in the city.
Again this year the president's office was the center from which all student enlistment
work was directed .Through the efficient administration of this office, faculty and
student groups have travelled through every part of the state acquainting high school
students with Alma College. They have met with unusually promising results in this
work. Aiding Dr. Dunning in carrying out all of the myriad duties connected with
the supervision and administration of the general policies of the college was his most
able secretary, Mrs. H. O. Abernethy.
Continuing under the direction of Mr. William Ellis, business manager and assistant
treasurer of the college, the business office again had full control over all business
matters affecting the college. An important part of the work of this office was the
supervision of the maintenance of all college buildings and the regulation of student
labor. When Mr. Joseph Yeager, who had been bookkeeper for the past several
years, left Alma this spring to assume a position in another city, his work was taken
over by Miss Virginia Tice assisted by Miss Joyce Garberson.
PRESIDENT DUNNING AND MR. ELLIS' OFFICES
Although it has been established as a working organization for only two years,
the office of Mr. L. Robert Oaks, executive secretary of the college, has this year clone
a fine piece of work in organizing the alumni. Through the work of Mr. Oaks, Alma
College Alumni Associations have been formed in many cities of Michigan. By keep-
ing in close contact with the Alumni through the publication of the Alumni Bulletin
and through personal contacts, this office has developed an alumni fund of 55,000
which will go to aid the college in combating the many problems which arise from
the war situation.
This year marks another successful season in the service of Professor Robert W. Clack
as college registrar. Besides all the work on admissions and credits, the registrar's
office gave psychological examinations to all incoming students, worked out the
schedule of classes for each semester, and recorded and distributed all grades. Prof.
Clack has for some time been noted for his keeping of detailed records of each
student's academic work. This year the registrar was aided by a staff composed of
Rama Kirkwood, Frieda Volpel, and Nancy MacLeod.

Administrative supervision of Wright Hall,
the Women's dormitory, was carried on un-
der Miss Kathleen l. Gillard, dean of women.
Miss Gillard came to Alma in 1939. During
her deanship many changes were instituted
in the way of new rules, a published book-
let of customs for freshmen, and the revision
of the Senate's constitution.
The Senate, governing body elected by the
women of Wright Hall, serves for a period
of a year working with Miss Gillard in the
administration of the dormitory. Its members
consist of four seniors, three iuniors, two
sophomores, and one freshman. Possessing
both a judiciary President who deals with
all disciplinary matters and a social Presi-
dent who has charge of the social functions,
the senate has a great responsibility. This
KATHLEEN l. GILLARD group was admitted last year to the Asso-
ciated Women's Student Government.
Through this year Blanche Bahlke served as President of the Senate. ln a recent
election Elizabeth Miller was chosen to head the governing body during the next

This year saw the start of a new system for Alma College in the form of the Co-
operative Council, which is a representative governing body composed of student
and faculty members. lt was organized after an intensive study of other school systems
by a committee on student government. The Council is the supreme ruling body on the
campus with final authority on all matters pertaining to the welfare of the college
community and having the power to veto any decision of a subcommittee.
The nucleus of this board is composed of the college president, three faculty mem-
bers chosen by the faculty, the Student Council president, and two students selected
at random by the Student Council. Under it there are eight subcommittees, which are:
Music, Speech and Dramatics, Publications, Social, Athletic, Public Occasions, and
Religious Life. The faculty members of these subcommittees are picked by the faculty
and an equal number of students are chosen by the Student Council.
The members of the Council for the first year were: Miss Foley, Mr. Johnson, Dr. Sei-
fert, Frieda Volpel, Robert Kirby, and Bruce Mellinger. Dr. Dunning was acting chair-
man, Student Council President Bruce Mellinger, vice-chairman, and Frieda Volpel,
As an innovation, the Co-op Council proved to be a fine working unit, and promises
to have a constructive influence in future college relationships.

Entering Alma in 1938, the class of '42 was the largest in the history of the college.
Early in their first year the men of the class established a reputation for being able
to match any opposition by winning the flag rush in record time and were soon recog-
nized for their pluck by their upperclassmen disciplinarians.
With their usual energy and creative ability the class sponsored two unusually success-
ful semi-formal dances in their freshman and sophomore years and held a very fine
formal J-Hop last year.
It was in the field of athletics, however, that the class of '42 made its greatest show-
ing. With the power of several men who were destined to win fame in later years,
the frosh football squad went through its season with only one defeat and in many
instances made a better showing than the varsity. This same high quality of athlteic
ability was also shown by the freshman basketball squad during the 1938-39 season.
Through the three years following that first great season the men of this year's senior
class have continually filled a majority of the positions on both the basketball and
football teams of Alma College and have been influential in earning two MIAA
championships in basketball, one championship in football, one in track and one in
The class of 1942, the first to be graduated since America entered the war, has from
time to time during the past year suffered a decrease in size due to students dropping
from school to enter the armed forces. Soon after graduation most of the men of the
class will enter some branch of the military service instead of the field for which they
have studied. They will do this willingly, however, with the realization that they will
be playing their part in making it possible for those students who follow them to be
blessed with a liberal education similar to that which they have received at Alma in
the past four years.
Reading from top to

Frieda Volpel, Albert
Wilson, and Mary
Besides acting as president of the senior class, Bud Wilson has this past year served
in the offices of president of Delta Gamma Tau fraternity and treasurer of the Student
Council and has played his fourth year of varsity football.
Mary Goodwin, vice-president of this year's senior class, has in the past school year
served as president of Kappa Iota sorority and president of the Women's League
and has been active in all branches of the women's organizations during her four
years on the campus.
Frieda Volpel, secretary of the senior class, this year served as secretary of the
Co-operative Council and was given recognition for her fine scholastic record by being
admitted to Phi Sigma Pi, the scholastic honor society on the Alma campus.
During the past year Andy Horne has acted in the important capacity of treasurer of
the senior class and was honored for his faternity activity by being elected to the
presidency of Phi Phi Alpha.

The Alma College athletic teams made quite a name for themselves in the 1941-1942
athletic season. Much of the credit for their showing, however, should go to Coach
Gordon A. Macdonald. "Mac" has put in a long, hard year and the efforts show for
themselves on the credit side of the ledger. On September 8, before most of the
students had begun to think seriously about the school year ahead, Coach Macdonald
and his Scot gridders were hard at work in their pre-season conditioning practice.
The record that these gridders made is known to Alma students and to the entire
state. Getting off to a slow start, they gathered power and drive to finish the season
undefeated and tied but once in their seven game schedule. Much consideration should
also be given to the line-coaching job of Coach William "Bill" Carr, whose linemen
had the best defensive record in the state of Michigan, a truly fine record.
The football season was scarcely in mothballs when the Alma cagers started practice
and conditioning for the defense of their MIAA championship. The cagers matched
the record of the footballers, by going through their conference schedule undefeated
and finishing up the season with nineteen wins and three losses. It was marked by
double victories over Central Michigan, the traditional Alma rival, the first time that
such a feat has been accomplished in many years of inter-school rivalry, and by a
victory on the Alma floor over the strong Western Michigan College quintet. The
Western cagers downed Alma at Kalamazoo, but the rivalry bids fair to be continued
in future years, as they are scheduled for games again next season. ln the basketball
season again, praise should go to Coach Carr for his handling of the Junior Varsity.
Coaches Macdonald and Carr divided up the spring sports program, and the strength
and size of the Alma spring squads made this no easy task. Should the Scot athletes
succeed in winning the All-Sports Trophy again this year, the efforts of the coaching
staff should be fully recognized and appreciated.
Mention should also be given to the work of the trainers and manager: "Cap" Cap-
paert, who handled the equipment, Charles Doyle and Bill Galinet, who worked in
the training room, George DeHority, who acted as manager, and "Mike" Tobin and
the rest of the younger gym crew, who assisted Mr. Cappaert.

For the first time in the history
of Alma College, its ,athletic
teams in the 1940-1941 season
won the much-coveted Michi-
gan Inter-collegiate Athletic As-
sociation's "All-Sports Trophy."
The trophy was awarded to
Coach Gordon A. Macdonald
at the MIAA Field Day at Mar-
shall on May 23, 1941, and
was turned over to the college
for its trophy collection at the
All-Sports banquet in Wright
L , Hall on May 27.
The trophy is awarded each year to that school in the MIAA which places highest in
aggregate scores in football, basketball, track, golf, and tennis. In each sport, the
school placing first receives ten points, second-eight points, third-six points, fourth
-four points, and fifth-two points. By virtue of first places in conference standings
in basketball and golf, second places in football and track, and a third place in
tennis, the Scot athletes piled up a total of forty-two points out of a possible fifty
points to walk off with the trophy for the 1940-1941 season.
The Scot basketball team won its MIAA title with a clean record of ten wins and no
defeats, the cagers finishing their entire season with a record of twenty-three victories
as over against five losses and winning twenty-two consecutive games to establish a
new record in Alma College sports' history.
The best golf squad in many years of Alma ahtletic history won AIma's first MIAA
Field Day Championship last spring to further secure the All-Sports trophy.
The football team placed second in the conference in 1940, after losing to Albion in
the crucial MIAA battle. In the Field Day Meet at Marshall, the Scot thin-clads won a
vital second place. The same day, the tennis team placed third in the Field Day tourna-
ment to clinch for the Scots the coveted award-of-the-year.
In the current season, the Scots are well on their way for their second-consecutive
All-Sports Trophy. The football team rolled through its regular season undefeated
and tied but once in seven games, to win the MIAA crown. The Alma cagers, dis-
playing the same driving power with which they won the conference the previous
year, were again undefeated in conference play, finishing the season with nineteen
wins and three losses. With the largest track squad in Alma history, a strong golf
team, and a threatening tennis team, the Scots are strong favorites to win the
All-Sports Trophy again this year.
I'TINKER" KIRBY WINS BOSCH TROPHY
The annual award made by the Holland Manufacturer, Randall C. Bosch, to the most
valuable football player in the conference was voted this year to Robert "Tinker"
Kirby, Alma quarterback. In his four years at Alma, Kirby has been chosen on the
All-MIAA first team in football this year, and the second team in 19405 and has been
All-MIAA guard in basketball for the past three consecutive seasons. "Tinker" has also
been a mainstay of the track squad in the field events, throwing both the iavelin and
the discus. But Kirby's prowess has extended beyond athletic circles. One of the top
students in his class, he was awarded the annual University of Michigan graduate
scholarship for T942-1943. His other positions inculdez class officer, Student Council
vice-president, and student representative of the Independent organization on the
Co-operative Council. Truly,
"Tinker" has made a re-
markable record during his
stay at Alma.

of Alma about to make
The varsity football team started out the season slowly this year, but gathered speed
and drive as the season progressed until they became a vertiable avalanche as they
ended the season by swamping Albion 21-O to even the score for the match which was
lost to the Britons at the close of the 1940 season. Coach Macdonald's gridders played
a seven-game, undefeated season, being tied but once by Hope early in the season.
The power and aggressiveness of the Scots may be seen in the fact that they gained a
total of 1,941 yards from rushing and passing as compared to their opponent's 917.
This was the best combined offensive-defensive record in the state of Michigan.
The Scot gridders started their pre-season practice September 8, in response to the call
of coaches Gordon Macdonald and William Carr. Although hampered by condition-
ing iniuries, and Kirby's pre-season absence, they were in top trim for their season
opener at Grand Rapids.
The Scot's season got under way to a slow start on September 27 as they downed
the highly-touted University of Grand Rapids gridders, coached by Potsy Clark, to the
tune of 12-O. The Alma offense was sparked by Jack Tait, who tallied the first Alma
touchdown late in the second period, and the final counter coming in the fourth
period as Bill Pink recovered an Alma fumble in the end zone. The Scots' defense was
stiff, and credit should go to "Cap" Cappaert for his fine work in blocking and back-
ing up the line.
For more than three quarters the Hope team outfought the Mac-men when they met
on Bahlke Field in their night game October 3. Hope scord on a pass play early in
the game, and it was not until Tinker Kirby went into the Alma lineup in the second
period that the Scots looked like possible champions. The Alma score came late in
that period on a short pass from Tait to Kirby, with Kirby kicking the extra point to
knot the score at 7-7. Such was the score at the end of the ball game, the second
half being marked by an unsuccessful field goal attempt by Hope late in the fourth
quarter, and by an Alma drive which was stopped by the final gun on the Hope
eleven yard line.
Alma won a hard-earned 6-O battle with Hillsdale on the Dale's gridiron in a night
game October TO. An 85 yard march in the second period netted the score. Two
passes from Kirby to Carey gathered 80 yards, and Jack Tait went over from the one
yard line for the score. The Dales threatened late in the same period when they
drove to the Alma one-foot line, only to lose the ball on down through the great
line play of Holmes, Navarre, and Harold Hartt. A strong factor in the second half
was the running of Max Tullis, who replaced Tait after the latter was injured.
Rain, mist, a slippery field, and the heaviest line in the MIAA failed to 'stop the Alma
powerhouse as it gave the Alma Homecoming crowd a real show in routing Adrian,
46-6. Kirby scored two of the touchdowns and kicked three extra points, Tullis, re-
placing Tait when injuries forced Tait from the game, scored twice and turned in a
fine performance in his hard-running, Carey counted on a one-handed catch of
Kirby's pass, Bruce Butler scored on a 39 yard runp and Bud Wilson scored in the
last period to give Alma its best scoring record in six seasons. The lone Adrian score
came on a long pass late in the second quarter.
It was a sad Homecoming for the Kalamazoo Hornets as the Scots, sparked by Tinker
Kirby, humbled the Hornets T3-O. Kirby put on a beautiful exhibition of kicking, pass-
ing, and running to lead the Alma attack, all despite a serious foot infection and
playing against doctor's orders. Kirby passed to Carey for the first touchdown, scored
the second himself and kicked the extra point. Fenner and Robertson were strong in
the Alma line.
Playing an exhibition night game in Bay City's rain-soaked stadium October 31, the
Scots played powerhouse football to down Lawrence Tech 26-6. Tait scored twice,
Tullis once, and Carey scored on a pass into the end zone from Kirby. Alma's line play
was sparked by Capt. Ed Baklarz and Ed Penner.
The Scots wound up their season by steamrollering their old rivals, the Albion Britons,
21-0, to clinch the MIAA championship. "Mac" saw his boys win his first football cham-

Outstanding was the work of the Alma substitutes, with excellent work being turned

Strong praise should go to the entire football squad for their showing this year, for
they showed themselves a real "team," with every man being an important cog in the

STOOP AND JAKE
The brunt of Alma scoring was
borne by senior Keith Carey, one
ot Alma's greatest centers, and
Jack Howe. Carey, voted second
best college cager in Michigan
for the past two seasons, scored
289 points this year, 107 being
scored in MIAA contests. Against
Western Michigan, Carey netted
30 points for the season's rec-
ord. Howe, leading scorer in the
MIAA this year, including 137
points in conference games, led
the Scots' scoring with a total of
297 points for the season. Both
were unanimously selected for
berths on the All-MIAA team.
Facing the strongest schedule of opponents in many years of Alma cage history and
also facing the problem of revamping its style and line-up because of replacement for
three of last year's regulars, the Scots wound up their schedule with the best college
basketball record in the state of Michigan, and the best in Alma history. 19 wins and
3 losses make up this truly tine record!
Three Scot cagers were unanimous selections for All-MIAA berths: seniors, Keith Carey
and Robert Kirby Cboth attaining the distinction for the third straight yearj, and junior,
Walter Howe, who was the leading scorer in the MIAA this season.
Rounding out the Scots' starting quintet were Rex Holmes and Ed Penner. Holmes'
aggressiveness and ability at setting up Scot scoring plays, and Penner's defensive
game and accurate out-court shooting made the Scots a dangerous and well-rounded
ball club. Keith Carey has been rated by many to be the greatest center in Alma
Much credit should also be given to other members of the squad, who were: Silvio
Fortino, Robert Howe, Gayle Saxton, Durrell Emling, and Jack Heimforth. Although
not playing a full season with the Scots, Max Tullis, Roscoe Walker, Bill LaPaugh, and
Vernon Walters also merit praise for their work.
Four of the Scot cagers topped the hundred mark in scoring, with two of these nearing
the three hundred mark. These four were: Jack Howe, 297, Keith Carey, 2897 Robert
Kirby, T485 cmd Robert Howe, 108.
The Scots again received the invitation to compete as representatives of the state of
Michigan in the National Intercollegiate Basketball Tournament at Kansas City, but
owing to the late date at which the invitation was received the Scots were unable to
Highlights of the cage season were many. The Scots got off to a slow start in losing
to the sharpshooting Bay City WMCA team when their last quarter rally fell short
and they dropped the season opener by a score of 51-50.
Their first stiff intercollegiate test came when the Scots met the Central Michigan
Bearcats. Keith Carey, though suffering a severe mouth injury during the game, led the
Scot attack with 25 points and at the same time played the best defensive game of
his college career. Bob Howe played a fine game while substituting for his brother
Jack, and Kirby and Penner stopped the Bearcats' scoring threats as Alma came from
behind to win 48-43.
In the second Michigan Normal
game at Ypsilanti, forward Jack
Howe put on a stellar exhibition
of basket-shooting to lead the
Scot attack with 20 points.

Two of Alma's best home games
came next. Alma outclassed a
scrappy Tri-State flndianaj team
to win 44-35. The Indiana team
had great power in Schoon, 6 ft.
7 in. center, and high-scoring freshman guard, Mahnensmith, who scored 25 points in
the enocunter. Alma played its best game of the year in downing the fine Western
Michigan College quintet on the Alma court 6I-50. Carey pushed through a total of
30 points to outscore the Western ace, Gensichen, who was held to 'I6 points through
the fine defensive work of Kirby. Jack Howe also netted I9 points for Alma.
At Angola, Indiana, the Scots had a difficult time coming from behind to beat Tri-
State in a hair-raiser, 44-43. Jack Howe's center court shot with 30 second to go,
tying the game, and Rex Holmes' foul shot in the last six seconds pulled the game out
of the fire for Alma.
The Scot machine bogged down when they met Western at Kalamazoo. Missing many
uncler-the-basket shots and free throws, and unable to hold Gensichen, Western's
scoring ace who swished 25 points, the Scots lost 48-42, ending Alma's fifteen game
winning streak. The same week, still off stride, the Scots had a difficult time in winning
the crucial MIAA game with Hope at Holland. Rex Holmes, playing the best game
of'his career, provided the needed punch as the Scots barely nosed out the Dutchies
by a score of 48-46. The following night, the tired Scots were unable to match
the keyed-up Michigan Normal team in the game played at the Olympia Stadium
in Detroit as the Hurons won 5I-4I.
Ed Penner's swishing out-court shots were the principal factor in the Scots downing
the Central Michigan Bearcats at Alma, 32-29. The Scots rang down the curtain by
winning over Kalamazoo at Alma, 52-46, in a game which saw Carey, Kirby, Penner,
and Holmes playing their last game for Alma.

Faced with a green and unseasoned squad, Coach Carr brought his junior varsity
cagers along slowly, and their strong showing and development as the season pro-
gressed is evidence of their work and seasoning. From the "B" varsity, several achieved
berths on the varsity and give fine promise for next year.
Durrell Emling led the Scotties in scoring this season, scoring 72 points while playing
in only seven of the eight games. Other players giving strong promise for next year
and showing improvement during the year were Jack Heimforth, Carl Wickham, Mur-
ray Hanna, Paul French, and Jack Hensel. Max Tullis was a valuable asset this season,
but has been lost to the army, and he cannot be counted on for the next season's
prospects. Late in the season Bill LaPaugh strengthened the Scotties' roster, but, being
a senior, will not be back for varsity play next year.
The Scotties played their strongest game in downing the Cental Michigan Bearkittens
in their last game ot the season, 49-43. With the varsity losing four of the starting
quintet, Coach Macdonald will Iook to this group for the material which will supple-
ment his championship squad when they start the defense of their title next season.
With the two Howe brothers, Jack and Bob, Silvio Fortino, Rocky Walker, Gayle Sax-
ton, Durrell Emling, Carl Wickman, Paul French, and Jack Heimforth returning from
this year's varsity, Coach Macdonald will have a formidable group around which to
build his 1942-1943 aggregation.

With the largest track squad in Alma sporting history, Coach Gordon A. Macdonald
worked hard with his tracks prospects in preparation for the MIAA Field Day at Kala-
mazoo this year. There was but one thought in all their minds, that was to break the
reign of Albion and Kalamazoo in track. This year, the outcome of the track squad
was a main factor in whether Alma will be able to win for the second straight year
the coveted All-Sports Trophy given each year to the school in the MIAA, which
achieved the largest total of points in the combined sports of football, basketball,
track, golf, and tennis.
Mainstays of the track squad were three seniors: Jack King, Robert Kirby, and Lynn
Wilson. King, track captain, is the Bay City speedster whose drive and competitive
spirit in the middle distance running events have added many vital points in Alma's
track meets in recent years. Kirby, hailing from Charlevoix, specialized in the field
events, being one of the strongest iavelin and discus throwers in the conference.
Wilson, an Owosso product, was rated the outstanding high-jumper of the MIAA in
recent years, his other speciality being the broad-iump.
This year the squad was bolstered by several freshmen. Among these were: Durrell
Emling, Bud Kohler, Harold Mayhew, Jack Mundell, Bob Marx, Wayne Dorsett, Bruce
Butler, Marray Hanna, and Homer Fulton.
Among the other outstanding upperclassmen on whom were pinned Alma's title hopes
were Gayle Saxton, Neil MacNeil, Ed Baklarz, Bill Pink, Keith Carey, Frank Navarre,
Warren Hagenbuch, and Walter Mattison.
The Scot thin-clads started working out before the end of the basketball season in
preparation for the MIAA Indoor meet and the coming outdoor events. Handicapped
by lack of indoor equipment, the Scots worked themselves into top shape for the
indoor meets only to be handicapped at the last minute by the quarantine loss of
Neil Mac Neil, their number one hurdler, and the leg injury of Captain King.
Thus handicapped, the Scots managed to place a close third behind Albion and Kala-
mazoo in the MIAA Indoor Meet at East Lansing early this spring. Gayle Saxton set a
net indoor pole vault record of II ft. 52- in., and Lynn Wilson won the high jump.
The freshman strength loomed large in this meet.
Standing, left to right: Albert Katzenmeyer, Don Peters, Coach Macdonald, Jack Lea, and Fred Hartt.

Despite the loss of two members of its Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association
championship team, the Scot golfers loom as strong contenders to retain their title
this year, and are rated to be among the best in the conference. Bert Katzenmeyer of
Ann Arbor and Bob Phillips of Alma are the returning letter-men from the T941 squad.
The outcome of the golf squad in the MIAA Field Day at Kalamazoo this year, in
which the golf matches will be played on the Milham Park Course, will to a large
extent determine whether Alma is successful in defending its All-Sports Trophy won a
The golf schedule for this year: May 5-Central Michigan, May 9-University of
Michigan, May T3-Central Michigan, May 21-22-MIAA Field Day at Kalamazoo.
The 1941 golf team was the strongest in Alma's golfing history. Well-rounded in
performance, and shooting consistently good golf, the team played its way through
to the golf championship of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association in the
Field Day Meet, in which the golf matches were played on the Battle Creek course.
Theff title was a vital factor in the Scots' winning the All-Sports Trophy in 1941. lt was
the first time that Alma has won the golf crown.
The championship team was composed of Ted Welgoss, Bert Katzenmeyer, Robert
Phillips, and Cyril Firth. Other members of the squad were Richard Krall, Sidney Kane,
.lack Lea, and Don Peters.
Although all members of the title team were eligible to return, Uncle Sam has taken
Ted Welgoss from this year's team.

2'I-22 ...,,,, A ....,. MIAA Field Day at Kalamazoo
This year's tennis team faced a big task in connection with the MIAA Field Day
at Kalamazoo held on May 2I-22, because they, too, had the responsibility of trying
to see that the All-Sports Trophy returns to Alma in 1942.
.lack Howe and Francis Sherman remained from last year's squad which placed Third
at the Field Day in Marshall. This year, the squad will be bolstered by Robert Howe
and many candidates for the other berths on The tennis team. I
Again this year, the Kalamazoo netters were rated tops in the league, especially after
the showing of the Hornets on their spring tour of the south. Alma, however, may be
rated a strong dark-horse contender for this year's title, and will give both Kalamazoo
and Albion strong competition for the net crown.
Owing to the national emergency, competition in spring sports-tennis, golf, and
track was somwhat curtailed at Alma this year. Fewer intercollegiate matches were
scheduled, and intramural and inter-class competition were used as conditioners for
the MIAA Field Day this year at Kalamazoo.
In spite of The curtailmenf, however, there was not a decrease in the enthusiasm in
these departments, as may be noted by the largest track squad in Alma history. These
athletes and Coach Macdonald were all determined to do their utmost to see the
return of the All-Sports Trophy to Alma this year.
It was necessary to abolish intercollegiate baseball from the ranks of the spring
sports for the duration of the present emergency. However, Coach Gordon A. Mac-
donald and the Alma Administration both assured that'it would be returned as a
spring sport as soon as conditions make its return possible and advisable. In The
meantime, an extended intramural softball program was substituted in this department.

The intramural program of men's athletics was greatly expanded this year in order
to make up for the curtailment of intercollegiate athletics that has been necessitated
by the present national war emergency and in order to meet the college's intention
of expanding this department in line with the national program of physical fitness
and physical education.
Coach William Carr managed the intramural basketball program which saw one
hundred and twenty-eight college men participating on the sixteen teams of the
Class A and Class B Leagues. In the regular intramural league season, the Class A
title was won by the Town Mice, and the Class B title by another town team, the
Town Photts. In the intramural tournament at the end of the rgeular season, upsets
were many, and the Town Mice succumbed in the early rounds of the tourney to the
Phi Fifers, who continued on to win the Class A crown. In Class B Competition, the
Town Photts, continued through in their season's style to walk off with the Class B
With intercollegiate baseball abandoned for the duration of the national emergency,
the intramural softball program was greatly expanded this year into two leagues
of Class A and B, as in basketball. In the past, the Campus Day game for the school
championship and the Student Council Trophy was played between the defending
champions and the top team of the single softball league. This year, however, Judge-
Advocate for Spring Intramural Sports, Francis "Cap" Cappaert and Coach Gordon
A. Macdonald devised a new system, evolving from the increased number of teams
participating, by which only the top two teams in both Class A and Class B would
participate on Campus Day for the Intramural crowns, with the winner of this Class
A championship receiving the Student Council trophy.
, . .
Physical fitness is especially a requirement for participation in the war effort. Due to
this fact, women's sports have taken on added significance.
Field hockey was the first of the sports played in the freshman gym classes under the
direction of Miss Jean Smith and Miss Marguerite Hale, the two women's athletic
instructors. Each Monday and Wednesday at four o'clock a game was organized
between the sophomores and the freshmen. Toward the end of the season the boys,
including a large representation from the football squad, competed with the girls in
a hectic game.
On October ll, a group went to Albion for the annual fall playday of the schools
in the MIAA. Teams were made up of the representatives of all the schools present.
Throughout the morning and after lunch the girls played basketball, softball, hockey,
and soccer baseball.
The annual fall picnic sponsored by the W.A.A. was a hike to Turck's Park. All the
college women participated. Vic prepared an outdoor lunch which was eaten around
the camp-fire. After a meeting at which the offiers were introdued, the gathering broke
up. The upperclassmen then treated their "little sister" to the movies.
Two roller skating parties, on December 6 and February 5, furnished variety in
campus entertainment. Buses furnished the necessary transportation to the Crystal Lake
Included among the college festivities honoring Christmas was the caroling done by
various groups of students. They visited many homes and hospitals. The carolers
arrived at the Masonic Home to find a fine reception had been prepared for them.
They were shown through the Home and treated with refreshments. The Yuletide
spirit couldn't have been more beautifully expressed than through the harmonious
singing of the students.
After vacation, volleyball and basketball became the popular gym games. Thursday
nights basketball practice was open to all the girls. Several times the Riverdale high
school team, under the direction of Miss Betty Dougherty, competed with the college
women in practice games. Particularly outstanding among the freshmen was Beverly
Bowling was one of the most popular pastimes this year. Monday and Thursday
afternoons at the Alma Recreation Bowling Center, special rates were given to students
of the college. Carol Paterson, with her score of 185, was high among the girls, while
Rea Rae Smith also consistently bowled a high score.
Winter sports, in general consisted of hikes, sledding, skating, while badminton held
first place among the indoor sports.
When Alma won the MIAA championship in basketball, a holiday from classes was
declared for the day. In the morning the gym was open for recreation, including
basketball, volleyball, and badminton. ln the afternoon, a dance was held in the
chapel recreation room. Ralph Brown led those present in cheering and singing, while
Andy Edgerton made some records of the affair. Refreshments were also served.
The day was climaxed by a basketball game with Central State in the gym that night.
When spring came, tennis and softball were uppermost in the world of women's
sports. Softball was played in the gym classes and on every Monday and Wednesday
night. The tennis courts were constantly occupied. Balls were watched with eagle eyes
since they were on the priority listing. On May 8 and 9 the annual MIAA Women's
tennis tournament was held with Olivet as the host school.
Golf was greeted with great enthusiasm by its devotees. Bert Katzenmeyer gave
lessons to both the follows and girls who were interested in bettering their game.
At Kalamazoo College a meeting was held of athletic representatives from many
Michigan colleges. Those representing Alma at the meeting were Shirley Wenger,
Betty Pecsenye, and Miss Jean Smith. Problems concerning W.A.A. and general
sports activities were discussed.
Social dancing classes for beginners and advanced students were held throughout
the year under the direction of Miss Smith. They met every second and fourth Thurs-
day night in the month. Folk dancing was studied under Miss Hale in the freshmen
classes. The girls practiced various polkas and American folk steps. Another type of
dancing was the ryhthmic modern dance class taught by Miss Smith. Here the girls
were taught grace and poise as well as learning how to limber their muscles.
Co-recreation has played an important part in the enjoyable sports activities for the
students. Throughout the year on weekend nights, the gymnasium has been open to
those who wished to participate in various sports. Badminton and volleyball were ex-
tremely popular, and occasionally there was dancing.
The chapel recreation room, new to our campus this year, has been the source of
much entertainment. On open nights the room was open to all students of the college
for dancing, cards, and ping pong. A combination phonograph and radio has been
supplied with popular records. The chapel room has also been the scene of many
private parties. A small, completely equipped kitchen was furnished with a set of
dishes through the donations of the faculty and students. The entire room has been
supplied with comfortable and modern furniture. The floor is excellent for dancing
and was often used for that purpose.
The Sadie Hawkins Dance on April T7 was the scene of many unusual costumes.
Dressed as tattered hillbillys, the girls took their favorite "lil Abner's", and enjoyed
the dance with music furnished by recordings. The dance was sponsored by the
Something else of value brought about by the W.A.A.'s influence was the first aid
course under the direction of Dr. DuBois and Coach Macdonald. Three classes met
weekly for the lecture course. Under Dr. DuBois' supervision, one of the evening classes
was shown and practiced many helpful methods of bandaging.
The last of the year's activities was Campus Day on May 'l4. ln the morning there
was archery and also the finals of the Men's softball intramural tournament. After
the picnic lunch in the grove, the ceremony of the crowning of the queen and her court
was held. There was a campus sing on the college steps after dinner and then came
fhe dance given by the W.A.A. Thus was ended the year's activity in sports, combining
exercise and plenty of fun.
The social activities of the Alma College campus were led by the three fraternities and
four sororities. The men's organizations were Seta Sigma, Phi Phi Alpha, and Delta
Gamma Tau. The sororities were Alpha Theta, Philomathean, Kappa Iota, and Pi
Sigma Nu. Promoting cooperation between the sororities and fraternities and regu-
lating the rushing and pledging of new members were the duties of the Inter-fraternity
Council and the Women's League. These organizations were made up of representa-
tives elected from each of the sororities and the fraterities. Social activities sponsored
by these groups were the Inter-fraternity Dance and the Women's League Formal. The
Inter-Frat Race, held in the chapel recreation room in January, proved a great suc-
cess, as did the Women's League Formal, held in a downtown ballroom. Other organ-
izations of student government were the Student Council and the Co-Operative
Recognizing outstanding activities in other fields were the "A" Club, in men's ath-
letics, the WAA, in women's athletics, Phi Sigma Pi, in scholastic achievements, and
Tau Kappa Alpha, in forensics.
The Drama Club, and the Speech, Art, and Music Departments provided opportun-
ities for students to express their special talents and abilities. This year, the Drama
Club had a particularly successful season. Besides presenting an evening of one-act
plays, the group presented Thorton Wilder's three-act drama, "Our Town." These
departments not only played an important part in campus life, but they aslo repre-
sented the college to outside groups and individuals.
With world affairs and international relations assuming an unusually large importance,
interest in the International Relations Club was heightened this year. Discussions, lec-
tures, and outside speakers informed both students and faculty members of current
The Religious Life Committee attempted to foster the religious and spiritual life of the
:ampus. Activites of the group included special vesper services at Thanksgiving,
Christmas, and Palm Sunday, the programs of Religious Emphasis Week, and the
Sunday evening hour discussion groups.
Looking after another phase of campus life, Athletic Director Gordon Macdonald and
Miss Jean Smith, Chef Victor Manzullo, and Nurse Janis Friermuth worked together
in order to maintain health standards and good physical conditions among the students
on the campus.

The Alma College chapter of Tau Kappa Alpha, national honorary forensic fraternity,
celebrated its first birthday on April 24, 1942. In view of the excellent record in speech
activities made by Alma speakers, patricularly in the field of debate, a T.K.A. charter
was granted to Alma at the close of the debate season last year. The six charter mem-
bers were: Woodrow Wooley, Bruce Mellinger, Harold Draper, Charles LeClaire, Mar-
vin Koffman, and Lois Lindsay. Honorary memberships were voted to Col. Frank Knox,
Prof. Hamilton, Prof. Spencer, Coach Smith, and President Dunning. Officers elected
were: Bruce Mellinger, president, Harold Draper, vice-president, and Woodow Wooley,
This fall only one member of this group, Bruce Mellinger, returned to school, but in
the course of the past year, five new members have been initiated into the group in
recognition of their excellence in the field of speech. These are: Bruce Lindley, Wilbur
McCrum, Dave Kinney, Virginia Feighner, and Kenneth Plaxton. Officers this past
year have been: Bruce Mellinger, president, Dave Kinney, vice-president, and Wilbur
The aims of the organization are to foster interest in public speaking and in speech
activities and to supply a means of recogniton for those who have performed with
merit in these activities.
Requirements for membership are three: 1. the candidate must have performed with
excellence for two full years in intercollegiate forensic activities, 2. he must be in the
upper one-third of his class scholastically, and 3. he must be approved by the active
members of the chapter.
PHI SIGMH PHI
Phi Sigma Pi, Alma's honorary scholastic society, is one of the smallest and most
select groups on the campus. During the fourteen years of its existence, the society
has endeavored to encourage and promote interest in scholarship, and election to
the society comes as a reward and recognition to those who have shown excellence
in the field of scholastic achievement.
Phi Sigma Pi consists of the intellectual aristocracy of the campus. Entrance require-
ments are on a sliding scale, ranging from a 2.75 average required for students at
the end of four semesters at Alma to a 2.35 average required at the end of seven
semesters. Students with a 2.35 average at graduation, who have not previously been
initiated into the society, may be elected to it as alumni members. All members elected
to the society are presented with a gold key by the college authorities.
Heading Phi Sigma Pi for this year was Bruce Mellinger. George DeHority served as
vice-president and Frieda Volpel as secretary. Students initiated into the society
the first semester were Frieda Volpel, Elmer Baker, Deane Fink, and Kenneth Peterson,
and those elected the second semester were Randalyn Parsons, Blanche Bahlke, and
Edward Baklarz. Dr. George W. Muhleman, Dr. Herbert Wiltsee, and Mr. L. R. Oaks
were initiated into the group as honorary members.
Eventually the society hopes to affiliate itself with one of the national honorary
scholastic society, such as Phi Beta Kappa.

The Council was guided through a successful season by its president, Bruce Mellinger,
a member of the Council for the third successive year. Robert Kirby served as vice-
president and Betty Cleland as secretary. The duties of Treasurer were performed by
Bud Wilson. Victor Fox served as student marshall, while Jack Heimforth carried the
duties of social chairman. Don Gillard represented the Council at the National Con-
vention of the Student Federation of America held at Purdue University. Other mem-
bers of the Student Council were: Charles Purves, Clifford Leestma, Duane Waters,
Sutherland Hayden, David Kinney, Lenore Meyer, Joyce Snyder, Wayne Dorsett,
Harold Hartt, Francis Cogsdill, Bert Katzenmeyer, Jean Merrill, and Ruth Kolvoord.
The Alma College Student Council successfully completed its twenty-third year of
service on the Alma campus. Organized in 1919-1920, the objects of the Council as
set forth in its constitution are:
1. to provide an efective means of communication between the student body and the
2. to interpret and maintain college traditions and customs,
3. to exercise a general supervision over student activities, organizations, traditions,
customs, and conduct, and
4. to crystallize and make more effective the most worthy of student opinions.
Membership on the Council is of two kinds: elective and appointive. There are fourteen
elective members: four members are elected from the senior class, three from the
junior class, two from the sophomore class, and one from the freshman class. If, in
September of the year for which the Council is to serve, it is found that any of the
seven campus fraternities or sororities fplus the Independent Men and Independent
Womenj is not represented on the Council, that group appoints one of its members to
represent it for the year. The appointive members have full and equal standing with
the elective members. Thus the membership of the Council may vary from fourteen to
twenty-two. This year there were nineteen members.
Duties performed by the Council in the past year included supervision and regulation
of all student activities. The Council has the power of student discipline, which is
administered through the Student Marshall, an officer of the Council. The Marshall
also conducts the annual Paiama Parade, the Flag Rush, and the Tug-of-War. The
entire student social program is under the control of the Council and is carried out
under the leadership of the Social Chairman. Funds allocated for social purposes are
administered by the Council. This year the Council purchased a public address system
for use at campus social affairs. Equipment was also purchased to outfit the recreation
room in the basement of the new chapel. The very popular roller skating parties were
another activity sponsored by the Council.
Any idea, suggestion, or protest relative to campus life which a student wishes to have
considered may be presented to the Council for discussion. The Council also had
supervision of all campus elections and elected the student members of the Co-oper-
ative Council. Thursday chapel programs were another activity conducted under the
guidance of the Council.
One of the three organizations of its kind in the United States, the Alma College
Kiltie Band consists of twenty eight pieces. Charles "Scotty" Purvis, bagpiper and a
Scotchman himself, adds a dash of Scottish flavor to the group. The kilties are of
McPherson plaid in commemoration of that famous Scotch son who participated in the
organization of the Presbyterian church.
All the home football games witnessed the band in action in full dress. During Home-
coming the group played an important part, adding much to the parade preceeding
the football game and to the game itself. Campus Day also saw the band in full
swing. The off campus activities of the organization for the year consist of the Kazoo
football game, the Lawrence Tech game at Bay City and the Mason High Homecoming.
The band is under the direction of Professor Jess Ewer. For the past year Ralph Brown
has served as president of the group. Activities of the group, both off and on campus,
have been under the capable supervision of Robert Fishbeck, student-manager.

CHAPEL CHOIR PERSONNEL
Eileen Carrier, Marion Carter, Helen Dahnke, Phyllis Dunnette, Andy Edgerton, Virginia Feighner, Dean
Fink, Lois Fowler, Ann Fullerton, Paul Guider, Rama Kirkwood, Ruth Kolvoord, Clifford Leestma,
Elizabeth Miller, William Newton, Kay Peshke, Isabelle Purdy, Dane Smith, Russell Sterling, and
Mary Lou Williams.
Not one, but two choirs are the proud boast of Alma College. Both are under the
skillful supervision of Professor Jess Ewer. The older of the two, the a cappella choir,
consists of fifty voices. Besides the annual Christmas and Commencement concerts,
they participated in several special vesper services. ln the early part of May the
group fulfilled a four-day concert tour, visiting Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, Kala-
mazoo, and Detroit. Twenty voices selected from the larger group compose the chapel
choir, so-called because of its bi-weekly participation in chapel programs. A seven-
day Christmas concert tour through southern Michigan and a nine-day spring trip
through western New York state constituted the outstanding off-campus activities of
the group for the year. No musical group is complete without its capable soloists.
Lois Fowler, Eileen Carrier, Russel Sterling, Dean Fink and Clifford Leestma are
proficient in this capacity. Don Allured is the organ accompanist for the group.
Responsibility for the smooth functioning of both organizations rests on Cliff Leestma's
shoulders, who has been the choir manager for the past year.

The Alma College debate squad completed the season with a total of 82 wins out of
132 intercollegiate debates in which they participated.
At Bloomington, Illinois, Alma started the season off right by winning 22 out of 46
debates. At the Michigan State Men's Debate Contest, Alma took first place in the
tournament division by winning 8 out of 12 debates. Not to be oudone, the women
debaters also took first place in the tournament division of the Women's State Con-
test, winning 7 out of 8 debates.
In spite of the fine record which they had achieved, it was at Manchester, Indiana,
that the Alma debaters reached the climax of the season. In the "A" division of that
tournament, against some of the best debating competition in the country, Kenneth
Plaxton and Bruce Mellinger won 6 straight debates, while Bruce Lindley and Dave
Kinney won 5 out of 6 debates. In the "B" division of the same tournament, Alma
debaters won 24 victories against 6 losses, making the total for the whole tournament
41 victories with only 13 defeats.
The speech season started off this year with the extemporary speaking contest. Out
of 17 contestants, Mary Catherine Bell and Ken Plaxton were chosen champions in
the women's and men's divisions. A month later, Alma was host to the Michigan
Intercollegiate Speech League's Extemporary Speaking Contest. ln this contest, Ken
Plaxton placed second.
Prior to the opening of the debate season, a discussion tournament was held at
Michigan State College upon the debate topic, "Resolved, that the .Federal Govern-
ment Should Regulate by Law all the Labor Unions in the United States."
The Alma debate teams made up a strong squad this year, with no one outstanding
team, but rather a whole squad of good debaters. After an average start at the
debate tournament in Bloomington, Illinois, the teams gathered momentum at the
Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League's State Contests and climaxed the season
with a high percentage of victories at the Manchester tournament.
The different debate teams and student speakers representing the college travelled
over 2400 miles during the season. This included demonstration debates before various
club and organizations.
In Alma's oratory contest, Bruce Lindley, student debate manager, and Emma Richter
were iudged the winners. In the state contest, Bruce Lindley placed third in the men's
Alma will lose many of its valuable speakers and debaters this year, some by gradu-
ation, others to the war. One of the hardest men to lose, however, will be Bruce
Mellinger. In past years he has been named winner of both the oratorical and
extemp contests, but his finest record has been made in debate. In each of the four
years in which he has debated for Alma, he has competed in the "A" division of the
Huntington-Manchester debate tournament, meeting some of the best debate compe-
tition of the country, and has compiled the amazing record of 20 victories out of 24
To merely speak of Alma's speech record would
be incomplete without mention of Alma's coach, l
Professor Carney Smith, leader of the speech activ- l
ities. lt is through his work and interest and under g l
his guidance that such a record has been made l

During the past year, Dorothy Walton has served as president of the W.A.A. Much
of the success of the organization this year was due to the cooperation of the W.A.A.
Council and Executive Board. Mary Anne Bowen and Beulah Brace were vice-presi-
dents and Frieda Volpel acted as secretary-treasurer. In charge of the various com-
mittees were Helen Lindsay, publicity, Shirley Wenger, individual sports, Lenore
Meyer, maior sports, Donna Jean Francis, awards, and Mary Anne Bowen and Beulah
Brace, co-chairmen of social affairs.
The aims of the Women's Athletic Association of Alma College are seven
i. to deveolp an intramural program which will be broad enough to meet
the interests of all college women,
2. to develop standards of leadership and sportsmanship for college
3. to promote those activities which may be adapted to the leisure time
of after school life, tennis, golf, hiking, bowling, archery, skiing, skating,
4. to encourage the adoption of health concepts by all the college women
with the hope of actual improvement in habits of living,
5. to require medical examinations without exception for the participation
6. to provide opportunities for the development of student leadership, and
7. to provide opportunity for boys and girls to enjoy sports and games
Each year the W.A.A. sponsors two main social activities for the women of
the college, the Christmas Chocolate and the spring banquet. The after-
noon chocolate was held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Dunning on
The W.A.A. Banquet was held on April 23 in the Wright Hall dining room.
lt was the first formal dinner given by the association. Freshmen awards
were presented to Beverly Smith, Shirley Wilson, and Gerry Wadleyp
while letters were presented to Virginia Feighner, Shirley Wengeer, Lenore
Meyer, and Betty Pecsenye, and the Senior award to Frieda Volpel.
Those receiving honorable mention were Mary Jean Coley, Mary Ann
Bowen, Beulah Brace, Catherine Wilkie, Helen Lindsay, Marjorie Kuehn,
and Donna Jean Francis. These awards were given to the girls who have
merited them through outstanding work in sports and W.A.A.

A new organization on the campus two years ago, the "A" Club, whose membership
includes all athletes who have won a letter in a maior sport, and have proven to be
an essential part ot the school's activities. The purpose of the organization is to raise
money for promoting interest and participation in athletics on the Alma College
The officers for the past year were: Francis Cappaert, president, Robert Kirby, vice-
president, Bill Pink, Secretary, Neil MacNeil, corresponding secretary, Edward Baklarz,
treasurer, and Keith Carey, sergeant-at-arms.
At the beginning of the year freshman men and women secured the re-
quired green pots and ribbons from the "A" Club at a nominal fee. The
Club had charge of all concessions for every athletic event. They sold hot
dogs, coffee, peanuts, printed programs for the football games, and
candy and ice cream at the basketball games.
The members of the group, in order to show their appreciation to their
senior members, decided to purchase a ring for each graduating senior
of the club. These were presented by Dr. Remsburg to Ed Baklarz, .lack
King, Keith Carey, Bill LaPaugh, Bob Kirby, Bud Wilson, Lynn Wilson,
Francis Cappaert, Ed Penner, Fred Hartt, Don McKeith, Rex Holmes, Bob
Dickenson and Marvin Fenner at the "A" Club banquet. Money for this
proiect was raised by a scavenger hunt and dance held afterwards in the
gym, at which games were played and refreshments were served.
The athletes were particularly proud of the high scholastic average they
achieved as a group, ranking well near the top of the list in campus
There will not be an "A" Club on the campus next year. lt will fall before
the march of world events as have other important organizations. It will be
discontinued for the duration, but will be resumed as soon as the war is
The "A" Club presented Ralph Brown, a senior, with an honorary mem-
bership in their organization for his untiring efforts as a cheer leader for
the school's athletic events.
Alpha Theta, the original sorority on the Alma College campus, has been functioning
since March, 'l89O. Miss Elizabeth Hunting, daughter of Alma's first president, pro-
moted its organization. This year, another successful season was added to the society's
Aiding the Red Cross was a sorority project during the first semester of the school year.
Every member completed two infant night dresses. Several of the girls did Red Cross
knitting in addition.
The society participated actively in campus activities and contributed to the social life
of the college. The "Theta Mixer", accoring to the custom, ushered in the social
season in the fall, with Jack Tobin and his orchestra supplying the music. The annual
Homecoming banquet of the sorority was held in the Rotary Room of the Wright Hotel.
The sorority float, built around the theme of the three-fold motto "Prudence, Wisdom,
and Truth", took the second-place prize in the Homecoming parade.
During the rushing season the Thetas entertained with a theater party. After seeing the
movie "Swamp Water", the group came back to the chapel recreation room for
games, entertainment, and refreshments. Shortly after pledging, a closed party was
held in the chapel recreation room for both pledges and old members and their dates.
An amusing "mother and daughter" gathering was held at Carol Paterson's home.
Dodie Walton, in infant apparel, and her mother, Vera Pitcher, took top honors for
the most clever costumes, while Norma Hass, Bettie .lane Fee, Donna Jean Francis,
and Helen Olander were very close competitors for the prize.
The society gave a tea in the sorority room in honor of their patronesses, who are:
Mrs. H. Spencer, Mrs. R. W. Hamilton, Mrs. R. W. Clack, Mrs. E. T. Lamb, Mrs. H. Soule,
Mrs. C. Robertson, Mrs. L. Montigel, Mrs. R. Hallin, Miss Grace Roberts, Mrs. S. O.
Rorem, and Mrs. Rottschafer.
The annual spring banquet, at which new members were formally initiated, was
followed by a successful dinner-dance held at the Midland Country Club on May 2.
On the morning of the last day of school the sorority held its farewell breakfast. Mem-
bers and their mothers were present to bid good-by to the graduating Thetas, and
with this event the curtain was run down on Alpha Theta social activities for the year.

During the fall semester of 1941, Sally Reed acted as presiding officer of Alpha Theta
sorority. The dual role of first critic and vice-president was filled by Betty Cleland.
Treasurer Beverly Hopkins handled the money matters, Secretary Donna Jean Francis
the records, and Secretary Jean Wilson the correspondence. Vera Pitcher was second
critic and Shirley MacGregor, sentinel.
The spring semester election resulted in the promotion of Vera Pitcher to the presi-
dential position. Marion Hass became vice-president and first critic, Ann Wacker,
second critic, and Mary Ann Bowen, sentinel. Donna Jean Francis, Bettie Jane Fee,
and Maryhelen Connolly were elected to the offices of treasurer, recording secretary,
and corresponding secretary, respectively.
Philomathean Society was officially organized on November TO, 1909. Not till twenty
years later, however, did this literary society assume its present status as a campus
sorority. This year Philos again were active in campus life, both as a group and
During the first semester of the school year the Philos established the fact that they
are patriotically inclined. Ruth Kolvoord, who was president of the organization at that
time, made the necessary arrangements and acquired the names of a group of
soldiers stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Each girl in the society was
assigned one soldier to whom it became her responsibility to write. A thriving corres-
pondence between Alma and the Fort was developed.
ln Alma's Methodist Church the Philos held their annual Homecoming banquet. "We've
got 'em hooked" was the slogan upon which their float for the Homecoming parade
was based, with Alma football players supposedly hooking Adrian "suckers". The
implication was that the Homecoming football game was in the bag.
An early winter social success was the sororityis girl-bid dance, "Rendezvous in
Rhythm", held on December 5. Fritz Carrier and his orchestra provided the "swell"
music for dancing in the chapel recreation room and the decorations further carried
out the rhythmic theme of this party.
Under the stars, the milky way, the big dipper, and other heavenly hosts transferred
to the ceiling of Wright Hall's recreation room, the Philomathean rushing party was
held. Next on the calendar came a tea for the patronesses and freshmen girls. After
their formal initiation banquet, a bridge party was sponsored by the patronesses, who
are: Mrs. Don M. Howell, Miss Margaret Foley, Mrs. C. Carney Smith, Mrs. William
Season, Mrs. Leontine Netszorg, Miss Katherine Ardis, Mrs. Ben Lobdell, Mrs. Albert
Anthony, Mrs. Don Sullivan, and Mrs. Spencer Miller. The sorority concluded the
social season with a dinner-dance at the Midland Country Club on May 23.
The Philomathean chapel program showed both originality and wit. The girls imper-
sonated outstanding faculty members to the amusement of the students and professors
themselves. Betty McCulloch and Betty Pecsenye shone in the roles of Miss Foley and
Miss Steward, respectively. Dr. Brokenshire's double was Kay Wilkie, and Irma Nieder-
smith's interpretation of Dean Gillard was superb. Characterizations of Prof. Johnson
and Miss Smith fell to Liz Miller. Her performances were excellent as were the por-
trayals of other eminent Almanians.

For the fall semester the Philomatheans elected Ruth Kolvoord to act as president and
Anna Jean Sommerville as vice-president. Kay Wilkie became recording secretary,
and Ann Carter took care of the correspondence. The sorority funds were under the
control of Treasurer Irma Niedersmith.
The second semester Eileen Carrier moved into the presidential position, with lrma
Niedersmith taking over the vice-president's duties. Secretary Mariorie Kuehn had
charge of the records, and Marian Metcalf and Mary Jane Slyfield tilled the offices of
corresponding secretary and treasurer, respectively.
Kappa lota became of age this year, celebrating its twenty-first year on the Alma
College campus. Dean Elizabeth Roberts founded this society, the second youngest
sorority, in 1921. The members strive to promote interest in literature, inspire higher
ideals, and further the social activities of the college.
The Kappa Iota social calendar for the year was a full one. Last fall the society held
its annual informal closed party in the chapel recreation room. For this occasion im-
pressive curtains of purple Spangled with gold K.l. emblems.
For the Homecoming Parade, the sorority float was a clever portrayal of the slogan
H99 and 44f10O percent pure". In the evening of Homecoming Day, a banquet was
held, with many former members of the society returning for the event. Later in the
year, a tea was held in honor of the patronesses. The patronesses, in return, gave a
"Coke Dance" for the members of the chapel recreation room.
The Saddle Shoe Shuffle, an all-college, girl-bid dance sponsored by the sorority, was
an outstanding social success. "Song of the Islands" would have been an appropriate
theme song for the society's rushing party for freshmen, which was an authentic
tropical affair, complete even to bare feet and grass skirts. Other social highlights of
the year were the formal initiation banquet and the annual formal dinner-dance at
the Midland Country Club on May 16.
The group presented a riotous burlesque of Little Red Riding Hood for their Thursday
chapel program. The cast included Marjorie Croft as the cigar-smoking, gum-chewing
grandmother, Lenore Meyer, as the big bad wolf, Rama Kirkwood as sweet, innocent,
little Red, and Dorothy Champ as the lisping hero. All of the members contributed to
the success of the affair, but much of the credit was due to the fine supervision of
The entire sorority, under Phyllis Dunnette's guidance, made "Bundles for Britain" in
a scheduled sewing class every Friday afternoon. Those who could, knitted sweaters
and caps for children, while the others made flannel night gowns. The project was
completed in time for Christmas.
Kappa Iota is grateful for the interest its patronesses have shown in it. The patronesses
are: Mrs. Jess W. Ewer, Mrs. Gordon MacDonald, Mrs. Edward Lobdell and Mrs.
C. F. DuBois. Three honorary members, Mrs. Herbert Wiltsee, Mrs. H. Woodley, and
Mrs. H. McClure, were welcomed into the sorority this spring at its annual formal

Mary Goodwyn was president of Kappa Iota for the first of the three electoral periods
of this school year. She also represented the sorority as president of the Women's
League. Blanche Bahlke, another senior and president of the Wright Hall Senate,
assisted her as vice-president. Alice Peterson served as recording secretary. During
the second period, Blanche Bahlke was elected president, Phyllis Dunnette, vice-presi-
dentp and Kay Peshke, recording secretary. Since March, Phyllis Dunnette has been
president, Mary Goodwyn, vice-president, and Lois Ritchie, recording secretary. Some
of the offices were filled by one person throughout the entire year. The duties of
corresponding secretary were carried out by Marjorie Croft, of critic, by Norma
Lincoln, of sentinel, by Virginia Frank, and of social chairman, by Shirley Wenger.
PHI SIGMA NU
Pi Sigma Nu, Alma College's infant sorority, is in its fourth year of existence. Former
Dean Florence Steward instigated its organization in the spring of 1939 with the
cooperation of a committee appointed for that purpose. The patronesses of the society
are Mrs. Henry Howe, Mrs. Paul Rice, and Mrs. Lyder Unstad.
The Pi Sigma Nu girls are proud of their scholastic record, and with good reason.
The coveted scholarship cup, given each semester to the sorority which has maintained
the highest average as a group for the previous semester, has rested in their hands
for all but the first semester since the sorority's foundation. As a group they rate
second only to Phi Sigma Pi, the campus honor society.
To produce girls who will be well developed not only intellectually, but will also
be interested in athletics, social functions, and the general campus activities is the
aim of Pi Sigma Nu. This well-balanced development is expressed by the Greek
letters of the sorority's name.
After starting the social season with a tea and later a successful Homecoming banquet,
the society decided to arrange some entertainment equally enjoyable, but less
formal. A picnic at Turck's Park followed. The Pi Sigs sponsored the Saginaw Eastern
High School A Cappella Choir for their Thursday chapel program. Last November, the
Pi Sigma Nu girl-bid dance, open to all girls of the college, was the outstanding social
event of the month. Striking little Scotchmen made up the programs and formed the
decorations. George Washington and his hatchet was the theme upon which their
rushing party for freshman women was based. Tiny hatchets were the invitations. At
their many spreads, the sorority members have proven to be equally gracious
Gloria Albinana was inducted into Pi Sigma Nu as an honorary member. She has
been attending Alma College for the last year on a scholarship from the New York
Institution of International Education. This girl from Mexico has carved for herself a
place on the Alma campus. At home she studied for and obtained her lawyer's
degree. At the end of her year of study here she was awarded a bachelor's degree
by the college. Pi Sigma Nu had real reason to be proud of her, for although she did
all her studying in a foreign language, she maintained better than a 2.5 average.
Marjorie Hines and Marion Spalsbury were other new members welcomed into the
sorority. Their initiation was climaxed by a formal banquet in the spring. The mem-
bers of the sorority had their choice of attending the formal dinner-dance of one of
the other three sororities if they desired.

Election time for Pi Sigma Nu members comes once a semester. For the first half of
the present school year, the president's duties were capably handled by Lois Hawkins.
Doris Koppin was elected vice-president. Financial affairs were under the supervision
of Treasurer Veda Crewe, and the meetings were recorded by Secretary Dona
Peterson. Virginia Reiberg was the Almanian reporter, while Virginia Feighner acted
Dona Peterson ably filled the president's office for the second semester, while Virginia
Feighner acted as vice-president. Elected as secretary and treasurer were Doris
Koppin and Lois Hawkins, respectively. Critic Betsy Mayville and Almanian Reporter
Veda Crewe completed the list of officers for the last semester.
With the close of school in May, Zeta Sigma, the oldest fraternity on the campus,
completed its fifty-fourth year.
The men of the fraternity started this highly successful year by redecorating their
house. The walls and woodwork were painted throughout the house, new linoleum
was laid, Venetian blinds were hung, a new pool table was purchased, and the base-
ment ceiling, walls, and floor were painted. This gave the house a more favorable
atmosphere for work, study, and play.
On Sunday, October 12, Zeta Sigma initiated the campus social whirl by acting as
hosts to the class of 1945. On October 18, the weekend of Homecoming, Zeta Sigma
again took honors by receiving first and second prizes in house and float decorations.
November 7, the eve of the Alma-Albion championship football game, the fraternity
staged their very successful "Premiere" open house, inviting the entire campus to
an evening of entertainment and informal fun. A week later, Zeta Sigma again opened
its doors, this time to the freshmen men of the campus for their annual smoker.
The setting for the fraternity's spring formal, held on March 27, was the Midland
Country Club. Co-chairmen for this affair were Bert Katzenmeyer and Warren Heit-
man. The fraternity was also active in all phases of school life. Various members
participated on the football, basketball, track, and golf teams. Various members
were active in the Drama Club, and others held positions on the Almanian 'and Scots-
man staffs. The waiters' force and campus workers were also well represented with
Zeta Sigma men.
With the trend of world events constantly developing into a national crisis during the
past two years, more and more members of Zeta Sigma have been enlisting for
service to their country in the United States army, navy, and marine corps. Heading
the list is Colonel Frank Knox, present Secretary of the Navy. In the army air corps
are twenty-five others, while the navy air corps has claimed ten of the men. Six have
enlisted in the marine corps, while some twenty are serving in the regular army.
Richard Ginther, class of 1940, has shown his exceptional ability as an army aviator
by already claiming an Axis submarine, while his brother William, also of the class
of "40", is doing his part by driving a tank. Edwin Riggs, of the class of "42", is an
instructor in an army air corps school in Texas. Robert White, class of "44", has
enlisted his services in the United States Naval School of Music at Washington, D. C.

On returning to school in the fall of 1941, Bert Katzenmeyer was elected president
for the first electoral term. He was assisted by vice-president, Dan Peters, secretory
Francis Cogsdillp and corresponding secretary William Prescott. During the second
electoral term, Don Peters held the office of president, William Prescott, vice-president,
Joe Morse, secretary, and Guile Graham, corresponding secretary.
For the third and final period of the school year, William Prescott was the president
of Zeta Sigma, Neil MacNeil, vice-president, George Orluck, secretary, and Wilbur
Callahan, corresponding secretary. The office of house manager for the first half of
the year was held by Ted Welgoss, Guile Graham taking over the duties for the
PHI PHI HLPHE1
Organized in 1898 as a literary society, Phi Phi Alpha continued as such until T926
when it was reorganized as a fraternity. ln its forty-four years as a leader on the
Alma College campus, Phi Phi Alpha has grown rich in traditions and high standards
and has earnestly endeavored to live up to its name which, translated, means "Affec-
tionate Brothers of Learning." For the last eight years the fraternity has been located
in its own house at 313 Philadelphia Avenue.
Phi Phi Alpha men were active in almost every phase of campus life this year, playing
a leading role in student government, sports, scholastic activities, music, speech, dra-
matics, and social life. Seven members of the Student Council were Phis, including
Council President Bruce Mellinger, Student Marshall Victor Fox, and Social Chairman
Twelve members of Alma's MIAA championship football squad were members of Phi
Phi Alpha, Keith Carey and Jimmy Hicks being selected as members of the All-MIAA
team, while Rex Holmes received honorable mention on the Little All-American team.
In basketball, Alma's highly successful team, which won the league title for the second
successive year without a defeat, was paced by the great work of Keith Carey, con-
sidered by many to be the best basketball player ever to compete for Alma. He
was named to the All-MIAA basketball team for the third straight year. The number
of members participating in track, tennis, ancl golf was also large and Phi Phil Alpha,
as in other years, was well represented.
Scholastically, Phi Phi Alpha ranked among the leaders. The Valedictorian of the
1941 graduating class was a Phi, and this year the only all-A record achieved outside
of the senior class was earned by Bob Milham. ln speech, the members of Phi Phi
Alpha again excelled, with Jack Gilchrist and Bruce Mellinger as outstanding mem-
bers of Alma's crack debate squad. Campus officers who were Phi included the
president of the "A" Club, the president of Phi Sigma Pi Chonorary scholastic societyj,
the business managers of the Almanian and Scotsman, the president of Tau Kappa
Alpha fnational honorary forensic fraternityi, the editor of the Scotsman, the presi-
dent of the sophomore class, the student chairman of the Co-operative Council, and
the MIAA sports representative.
Victor Fox, Andrew Horne, and Fred Hartt served as presidents of the fraternity
for the three electoral terms of this highly successful year.
Phi Phi Alpha has also done its share in contributing to the war effort. In addition
to the members who have already gone into some branch of the service, many more
are soon to go.

DELTH GHMMH THU
With its charter members of the class of T942 putting the finishing touches on their
four years of college life at Alma, Delta Gamma Tau fraternity passed a highly suc-
cessful third year in their house on West Center Street.
Under the leadership of Presidents Albert Wilson and Ed Baklarz, the Delts continued
as an important cog in the campus machine, following their code of promoting the
highest moral, social, and intellectual ideals, and of furthering a friendly spirit between
all fraternity men of Alma College.
The influence of the Delts was felt in every phase of campus life. Its members were
among the leaders in all activities, including scholastic pursuits in which they achieved
a high ranking as a group. Activities in which members of Delta Gamma Tau par-
ticipated and co-operated included football, basketball, tennis, track, golf, softball,
bowling, fencing, publication work on both The Almanian and the Scotsman, choir,
band ,"A" club, International Relations Club, debate, oratory and extemporary speak-
ing contests, Religious Life Committees, waiters' force, Student Council, cheerleader,
and public relations.
One of the maior projects of the Delts during the year was the remodeling of the
House in order to provide a greater degree of -facility and beauty. Parties sponsored
by the Delts proved popular on the campus. The Delt Smoker was a great success
and did much in helping the fraternity pledge a fine group of new members. One
of the unique features of the campus social program was the Delt Mass Date Night
which provided fun and "kisses" for all concerned and brought together some ex-
tremely humorous "Mutt and Jeff" combinations. Topping off the social season was
the Delt formal on April 25 at the Hotel Olds in Lansing.
With this year's graduation porviding its first large group of alumni, Delta Gamma
Tau nevertheless has made and will continue to make its contributions to the nation's
war effort. Seven Delts were already in the armed forces at publication time, namely,
George Gillert, Sid Kane, and Bob Brown in the army air corps, Louis Ohliger in the
navy submarine service, Bob Jackson in the marines, Bob Rentz in the medical corps,
and Jack Brown in the army. Many have shown their willingness by volunteering for
summer service and for special fields. Of the latter group, Jerry Duvendeck heads
the list as the first Alma College man accepted for the navy's V-7 program.
All in all, the Delts closed their first four-year term with ample proof that there was
iustification in organizing a new fraternity in the fall of 1938.

The task of handling the weekly campus newspaper was accomplished capably by
editor-in-chief Elizabeth Miller and the associate editor, Sutherland Hayden. Elizabeth
is the second girl to occupy the editor's chair in the history of the Almanian. Faculty
support was given by Carney Smith, while .lim Cotter, assisted by Maryhelen Con-
nolly, managed the business and circulation. For the third consecutive year Jack
Crittenden was sports editor, aided by Marian Spalsbury as girl's sports editor. Jean
Beckwith, Helen Lindsay, and Dorothy Champ were in charge of the features which
added much of the personal touch to the Almanian, especially "Alma Matter" and
"Knowsey Knews," the author ot which remained shrouded in mystery. A weekly in-
formative article "The World ln Review" was written by George DeHority on the out-
standing events ot the war. Wilbur McCrum, Helen Dehnke, Bruce Mellinger, Dorothy
Walton, Guile Graham, and Robert Henney played an important part in their con-
tribution ot news.
It was with the aim in mind to produce a larger and more formal -yearbook, one which
would hold the interest of all students, that the Scotsman staff started work in the
early days of 1942.
ln order to produce a yearbook which would present a satisfactory cross-section of
campus life, editor Jack King chose a large staff which included students engaged in
almost every activity and organization in the college. Instead of leaving it to the
printer, all art work and cover designing was carried out by the art students of our
Following the theory that, in time, the copy in the book would be of as great interest
as the pictures, this yearbook contains more written material which, along with the
pictures, will stimulate many fine memories when it is re-read in the distant future.

for the good of the whole community-that each individual might find satisfaction and
fun-through feeling himself grow in appreciation or understanding and by enlarging
his experiences through actual participation. Each step in the development of the
department has been an answer to a demand or a need of the individual, the campus
or the community.
The students have had the privilege of helping to plan, design and build their own
workshop, to sponsor exhibits on the campus, lectures and the added thrill of bringing
several skilled craftsmen or artists to the campus. The class for children has been
organized and planned by the college students in order to establish a free happy
place where children might work together. The children come to create, and to grow
through experience and to develop their own self expression.
This year the students have been busy attempting to make the classrooms more
attractive. This work has required informal discussions with the teachers and students
of other departments in order to sense and feel their classroom needs. This type of
co-operation also offers an opportunity for many more individuals to have a part in
this growing experience and the solving of real art principles.
Art is a creative force-a force for good living, for stabilizing and simplifying human
relationships, for the understanding of today's needs and responsibilities. It brings
great joy and happiness, expands social duties by the attitudes towards the environ-
ment-it keep the real pioneering spirit alive.
Food, a baisc necessity, plays an important role in life at Alma College. Preparation of
three well-balanced meals a day, nine months out of the year, for three hundred
famished young folks is the responsibility of Chef Victor Manzullo and his staff. "Vic"
has efficiently performed this task since September, 1938.
Waiters serving the meals in the dining-room are students. Dr. Dunning, and "Vic"
select from the files of work applications those whom they feel deserve the work and
will be best adapted to it. Certain requirements in regard to scholastic ability and
personal appearance must be met by the boys.
Supervision of the waiters falls to the head waiter and his assistant. "Vic," with the
help of the Dean of Women, appoints a senior and iunior to these respective positions.
To maintain an orderly dining-room and a smooth-working serving system is their iob.
Bruce Lindley has been the head waiter, and Jerry Duvendeck assistant head waiter
throughout the past year. Another duty of the head waiter is attending to the rota-
tion of seating arrangements at the tables which occurs monthly. Each table in the
dining-room has a hostess, appointed from the iunior and senior women. The two
faculty tables are headed by Dean Gillard and Mrs. Hutton.
During the year there were three all-college banquets in the Wright Hall dining-room.
The first was an informal Thanksgiving dinner, at Christmas there was a formal affair,
and Easter was commemorated by a breakfast on Palm Sunday morning. Many other
banquets have been successfully staged under "Vic's" supervision. Listed among
these was the formal W.A.A. banquet for the women of the college, the "A" Club, the
Alumni, the sorority and the fraternity banquets.
Teas at various intervals complete the activities participated in by the Kitchen Staff.
Alma College has always had an unusual variety of social activities sponsored by its
campus organizations to suit every taste. The school year T941-42, had, beside these
traditional activities, many new additions.
A warm-up for the year's activities took the form of the Student Council Swingout
Mixer. The sports program soon got under way, and October 9 was the dedication of
the new chapel. This was a formal, academic ceremony, with a Presbyterian dignitary
for guest speaker and an organ recital. Homecoming provided its usual good fun and
loyalty. After the Frosh Frolic, on November Sth, the smoker season got under way,
an extemp contest was held, and the football MIAA Championship cinched the possi-
bility of a one-day vacation from classes.
Just before the Thanksgiving holiday, the first vesper service was held in the new
chapel. The dance calendar began to fill now, with the Zeta Open House, the "A"
club party, and the Pi Sig girl-bid.
The musical life of the campus was enriched by the Saginaw concert series and the
Wednesday evening musicales under the direction of Miss Schaafsma. The Chapel
Choir went on tour to southern Michigan for five days early in December, at other
times they were heard over different radio stations.
The Christmas spirit took shape in an all-Frosh party, fraternity and sorority gather-
ings, the Y.W.C.A. Christmas Party, the all-college formal Christmas dinner, and the
choir concert. After vacation talk began to be circulated about the possibility of
summer school at Alma and a wartime schedule. There was a change in the atmos-
phere. Plans for an Alma College plate to commemorate college days were announced.
Fraternities began to have their annual formals. The MIAA Championship was won
by the basketball boys again. Shortly before the swing into Religious Emphasis Week,
Colonel Chou spoke in chapel of plans for after-war reconstruction and the Sunday
evening hour groups took this up as their theme. The week itself was headed inspir-
ationally by Dr. Silas Evans, President of Ripon College. The third vesper service of
the year was the evening of Palm Sunday, the moning of which had already been
marked by an Easter morning breakfast.
The rest of the year whizzecl by unbelievably, with the J-Hop on April ll, followed by
a Pioneer Open House, the choir trip to New York, Sadie Hawkin's Day, Campus
Day on May 14, and concluding with Senior Week and the close of school June first.

The class of 1945 started out their social activities with a reception at the home of
Dr. and Mrs. John Wirt Dunning. Once in the swing, it wasn't long before the neo-
phytes underwent their orientation into the duties to upperclassmen and the necessity
for a particular type of distinguishing mark fgreen bows and potsj.
After hurling ignominious epithets at each other for several days, the two youngest
classes of men in Alma met, at the instigation of the Sophomores, at Davis Field for
a flag rush of 15 seconds easily taken by the freshmen.
The Paiama Parade brought Pioneer Hall out into the public thorough-fares of Alma
to exhibit their gay night garments and to be duly cured of all insubordination in the
subsequent command performance at the Strand Theatre, where histrionic ability early
November 8 marked the calendar with the Frosh Frolic, on the night of the Alma-
Albion game. Making use of the fine new chapel recreation room, committees planned
an All-Frosh class party for December 9.
Early January brought a humorous chapel hour with freshman boys displaying their
talents. At about this time marked ability in the freshman class in general began to
show itself: Beth Aron and Emma Richter in debate and Bob Henny and Betty
Powers in drama.
The freshman were well accustomed to the idea of pledging by the latter part of
January: smokers and open houses had been in progress all fall. Thus February found
would-be fraternity men doing sentinel duty in front of Wright Hall, along with other
equally unusual activities, and non-sorority women being led through a maze of
spreads, teas, and rushing parties prior to their more belated initiations.
All in all, the class of T945 proved itself worthy in many fields, scholastically it
ranked very high, in debate, oratory, athletics, and general progressive outlook it
took its place as well as filling to many leadership capacities.

Gray skies and damp weather seemed only to heighten enthusiasm for all the activ-
ities of Homecoming, 1941, from the bon-fire to the concluding dance. Coming in a
years of "first" fthe new chapel having been dedicated only the week beforej, this
year marked the end of the first half century of Alma College homecoming programs.
To whip plans into shape for the event, a committee was formed, consisting of: Prof.
C. Carney Smith, Chairman, Lee Clack, Vice-Chairman, Miss Smith, Miss Ardis, Prof.
Ewer, Ruth Kolvoord, Ralph Brown, and Jack Heimforth. The Homecoming Queen
chosen from the freshman girls was Bad Axe's Norma Hass. Her court consisted of
Barbara Pettyiohn, Shirley Sharpe, Dorothy Champ, Barbara Van Giesen, Isabelle
Purdy and Pat Williams.
The brave college organizations drove their floats through the drizzle Saturday
morning, bolstered spiritually by the Kiltie Band and all the trappings of the floats.
Phi Phi Alpha pulled down first place with a hillbilly motif, "The Martins and Coys
Phi-udin," followed in second palce by Alpha Theta, which chose to represent its
This year's homecoming luncheon was as crowded and as entertaining as ever, with
the initimitable Scotty Purves piping the band to their places much to the delight of
everyone. lt was a fine build-up for the Adrian-Alma game in Bahlke field, for Alma
mowed down her opponents with effective steam-roller tactics, ending the game with
a score of 46 to 6. After the game, everyone proceeded to Wright Hall for a sociable
treat of coffee and doughnuts.
Fulfilling the purpose of communion with friends old and new, the different frater-
nities and sororities of the campus held their annual formal dinners.
One of the most unforgettable dances of the year, the Homecoming dance had an
unusually good attendance. Its guests enjoyed the music of Howdy Mack's orchestra
and some very intriguing decorations by the art department from 8:30 until 11:30.
All good things must end, as we are told in the Good Book, but this event of 1941,
with its renewal of all acquaintances and old traditions will surely remain one of the
very bright spots in the history of Alma College.

The two highlights of the 1941 Campus Day combined the old and the new, the old
being the coronation of the Queen of Scots, the new, and never to be repeated, being
the cornerstone laying ceremony of the new chapel. The day was planned weeks in
advance, with practically every student and faculty member contributing to some part
of the day's program.
At 9:00 A.M., the Phis, defending softball champions, and the Independents battled
it out for the championship, with the Phis being victorious. After this warm-up, teams
composed of faculty members and students competed in a softball game. Spectators
were enabled to divide their time between the game and the finals of the tennis
and archery tournaments. Preceding the usual informal picnic luncheon in the college
grove, the freshman avenged former defeats by coming out on top in the Frosh-Soph
tug-of-war on the Pine River.
Dr. Samuel E. Forrer, chairman of the Board of Trustees, was selected to speak at the
symbolic rites connected with the laying of the cornerstone of the chapel, which was
to be the future center of Alma religious life. After this ceremony, there was the
coronation of the 1941 Queen of Scots, Betty Dugal, and her court, Marion Hass,
Lois Goldie, Sally Reed, Betty Thomas, Jeanne Speerstra, Vera Pitcher, Mary Goodwyn,
and Mavis Harrison. Queen Betty was crowned by her predecessor, Gene Lewis, after
which there was a short program of songs and dances.
After a baseball game between Alma and Michigan State's "B" team, dinner was
served at Wright Hall early enough to allow the dance festival to be held in Bahlke
Field iust at sunet. Entitled "Petticoat Rule," is depicted in dance form the election
campaigns of some of the creatures in the animal kingdom. The band, under the
direction of Professor Ewer, furnished the music for the dances. The day was ended
by a dance in honor of the queen and her court in Memorial Gymnasium at 9:00
Under the very capable leadership of Dr. J. W. Dunning, Professor Margaret E. Foley,
Professor Roy W. Hamilton, Professor Jess W. Ewer, Albert W. Wilson, Ann Carter,
and Jack Heimforth, Commencement week, 1942, went off smoothly for all concerned.
Senior activities began Sunday, May 24, with a farewell communion at the First
Presbyterian Church. The same evening, Dr. Dunning delivered the Baccalaureate
address in the Alma College Chapel, this was the first time the chapel had ever been
used for a graduating class.
Thursday and Friday followed the usual schedules for Senior Class Day and Alumni
Day. Thursday morning was the Senior Class breakfast, and Friday the meeting and
luncheon of the Board of Trustees, the tea for the Mothers of Seniors, the Alumni
dinner and business meseting, the A Capella Choir concert, and the President's
Saturday morning, the traditional academic procession left VVright Hall, proceeding
to the College Chapel, where diplomas were awarded and the commencement ad-
dress was delivered by Judge Florence E. Allen, of Cleveland. To wind up the official
gatherings of graduates was the luncheon in the college grove, to which everyone
As the school year of 1941-42 progressed, it became increasingly evident, especially
after the Pearl Harbor episode, that Alma College, as well as other institutions of
higher learning, would be affected.
Many changes in the schedule were either put immediately into effect or been
planned for Alma College. The plan of offering summer extension courses and of
accelerating the program in general seemed best with summer work on the campus
offered in the science department. Coach Macdonald announced new plans for
athletic programs in trend with the national emphasis on physical fitness for men
and women alike. There were new math classes for those aiming at the armed services
and proposals for some sort of band training at military music. Studies in the history
of events leading up to present crisis were also offered. First aid classes drew large
numbers of students second semester, under the leadership of Dr. Dubois and Coach
Thus in every way, Alma attempted to accomodate itself to changing conditions so
that it may remain as an educational institution for democracy during the war, and
to make available for service as many as possible as quickly as can be in harmony
with good pedagogy.
