CAMPUS DHY 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 o'clock.

COMMENCEMENT 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 reception. 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 was invited. WAR EFFORT 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 Macdonald. 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. 110
