Believing that the campus life of Anderson College is unique and worth
the telling and yet realizing that to capture the true spirit of a Christian
school is a titanic undertaking, this year's stall has tried to present a
graphic record of this school year that will accurately and without
distortion depict the quality of our collegiate life.

College life at Anderson is as varied as a '43 spring tie. In the
library and in the dorm rooms there are the hours for study,
eagerly salvaged from a long work week, in most instances.
In the community there are many opportunities for Christian
service, Welfare Home, Jail, Rescue Mission and many church
activities, where zeal for Christ can find expression. For the
moments of relaxation there are parties and concerts and plays,
wholesome times of refreshment when friendships grow and
weary minds become bright again. There are sports, too: ping-
pong, basketball, tennis, hikes, not to mention the animated
"bull sessions" that call for nimble wit and a tough "hide.', The
seniors, of course, are absorbed in getting a degree, along with
a few other little things.

The Gospel Trumpet Company
South of the campus is the home of all the religious literature published
by the Church of God-The Gospel Trumpet Company, better known
to the students as the "G.T." Always generous with publicity and
financial support, it employs in its modern, well-lit offices many
students as bookkeepers, typists, shipping clerks, secretaries and
switchboard girls. In addition, the editors are wonderful counselors
to harried or homesick students and have a ready sympathy for every

But, of course-
it is the main building which is the center around which college life
pivots. Here the Christian dynamic is taught, discussed and lived.
Here men, guided by the Holy Spirit, are preparing for their Chris-
tian ministry. And, what is just as important, here embryonic scien-
tists, lawyers and teachers gain their basic training in an atmosphere
of godliness and prayer, many to become zealous Christian laymen
in the church.

In every college the Dean, by virtue of his office, fills an important
place, but in Anderson College this man is as much a part of the
institution as is our library. Dean Russell Olt, ubiquitous Workman,
tireless executive, revered minister, understanding counselor, thorough
instructor and congenial friend, is a master in anonymous kindness.
To many a man he has been a silent benefactor. We love his true
humility and practical idealism, and because he personalizes our own
aspirations, we dedicate to him, the 1943 Echoes.

Books and buildings do not a college make. Teachers, however, self-
sacriicing teachers, do form the important nucleus for intellectual
progress. Our professors, by their real devotion to the students they
serve, have won the well-deserved respect and love of the entire
student body. 1-
as Talleyrand, resourceful at times when there were no resources,
and a man of understanding when the many tangles of student
life develop, Dr. John Morrison still remains the guiding light of
Anderson College. His dry wit has animated many a chapel hour
and his heart-to-heart talks have gone to the crux of many a crisis.
This year has certainly seen no diminution of his usefulness or sagacity.
In her seventh year as Dean of
Women, Miss Vila Deubach
brought to her task complete
devotion to duty and a sincere
desire to be impartial. In a posi-
tion where she comes in direct
contact with women students, she
has molded the behavioristic pat-
terns of many. Her attention to
detail is axiomatic.
Perhaps the busiest man on the
campus, Dean Olt manages the
thousand-and-one minutiae of his
daily routine with precision and
poise. His brusque manner masks
a willingness to serve that only a
few ever discover. The discipline
he imposes is rigorous but not
harsh and few there are that
grumble at it.

As is the case with either a good accompanist or a locomotive
fireman, a college staff is to be lauded most when it calls least attention
to itself. Whether the day were hot or cold, whether they were rushed
or relaxed, there was a fine prevailing courtesy among the staff per-
sonnel that both the Mary Co-eds and the Johnny Bookmasters appre-
ciated. The buildings were maintained, the students' health looked
after, tests mimeographed, C.O.D.s sent out, accounts balanced, food
purchased, processed, and purveyed, and dorm occupants pacified, all
with a minimum of waste and friction. That is a major achievement,
and our salute includes all the efficient assistants whom it would be
imperative to enumerate if our space would allow.

The work of the teacher reaches its highest
consummation when the perplexed student
comes in for counseling. Dr. Martin's genial
advice, fired by a high seriousness, has helped
hundreds. Professor Wiley, this year as in
other years, invited a number of students to
his home for informal discussions and delicious
dinners-the best antidote for homesickness.
Professors Kardatzke, Koglin, and Haldeman
are also frequently consulted. All the instruc-
tors have been helpful in maintaining bal-
anced Christian living.
Nothing endears an instructor to his classes
more than a fine sense of humor. The members
of our faculty, we are proud to assert, have a
spontaneous humor, judiciously applied. They
can take good-natured Hrazzingf' Dr. Schminke
has endured the loving "ribs" of the Boosters
for years. Prof. Wallace's classes like his hu-
morous approach to biology and chemistry.
Coach Dane cannot give a simple announce-
ment without convulsing his audiences. All of
this vitalizes the serious business of getting

Three new faculty members were added to
the professoriate this year. Miss Laura Wurt-
zel, Ph. D., received her doctor's degree from
the University of Nebraska in 1942 and has
taught three classes in typewriting, two in
shorthand, and one in accounting, besides some
night school classes, in her new capacity as
Associate Professor of Commerce. Miss Julia
Eaton, Ph.D. in Speech and Dramatics, is a
graduate of Cornell University. Prior to her
duties here Miss Eaton did some writing for
radio scripts and had the distinction of having
original plays produced at the University
Theater in Cornell. Miss Glennie Norman, our
librarian this year, received her CB.S. in Li-
brary Sciencej degree at Peabody in Nashville,
Tennessee and did her undergraduate work at
Dr. Clement T. Malan, Indiana State Super-
intendent of Public Instruction, recently spoke
highly of the quality of teaching at Anderson.
After paying a courteous visit to the institution,
he wrote, in a letter to Dean Oltz "I congratu-
late you upon your fine work." This tribute,
as well as the encomiums of other distinguished
visitors, is gratifying because it is always pleas-
ant to have one's personal opinions borne out
by those amply qualified to know.

A Trek through the Classrooms
Every student of human nature in the rough fand in the refined, too, per-
chancej would glean reams of research material from a journey through a
college or university's classroom sessions. It is there that hard-working,
kindly, and eminently patient pedagogues try to convey, in words of more
than one syllable, that elusive something known as an education to students
falas! not so hard-workingj who try their best not to be inoculated by the
virus but who do, in surprisingly large numbers when one stops to think about
it, learn enough to fit them for life in a world so complex that if we put even
two or three pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together we deserve a spot in the
"New York Sun."
The professors in Anderson College are in a real sense the life of the campus.
They are the nucleus of most of the student conversation. Draw near to any
coterie of clicking conversationalists and very likely you will hear them dis-
cussing, heatedly and yet without malice, the latest psychology quiz. If you
wanted more unbiased information you could tiptoe quietly to the doors of the
very classrooms themselves, your heart would be warmed by what you heard.
Perhaps it would be Coach Dane's hearty, urbane humor that dribbled
through the keyhole as you listenedg the Professor of Physical Education is as
well-liked and well-attended as any teacher could possibly be. Down the hall
would be Dr. Miller's Bible class. His large classes look forward to each
session, for his tolerant, well-balanced, highly individual comments upon
biblical exegesis are sincerely spoken and carry great weight with practically
every student. If next down the hall would be Professor Wiley's calculus class
you would perhaps be surprised to learn that even if you didn't care a fig for
math the period spent there would repay you many times over. Professor
Wiley's deep-rooted humility is a thing at which to wonder. Besides this, he
tries so hard to help that the student is impatient enough with his own stu-
pidity to get that answer or burst a blood vessel in the attempt. Occasionally
the room is hushed by mute respect and reverence. This particular reporter
will never forget one such session when our professor witnessed, in simple,
manly fashion, to God's healing power. And the students get their math, too!
These examples were just picked at random because it is hard to choose
whom to write about when one wants to write about so many. We could go
into detail about the genial wisdom of Dr. Kardatzke, or the extremely apt
judgments of Dr. Schminke on contemporaneous history, or the marvelous
kindliness of Miss Koglin. There could be essays in abundance written about
Professor Hartselle's modesty in spite of genuine artistic attainmentsg about
Dr. Brown's profound searchings and enlightened philosophies, and Dr. Mar-
tin's fine grasp of theological subtleties. And that would, of course, not nearly
exhaust the list.
Enough has been said, however, to indicate why Anderson Alumni feel as
they do about their professors. Regardless of what they, as sleep-weary stu-
dents, might have muttered while they were writing their term papers, the
memories that last are the ones tinged with reflected glory-the glory of
honest personalities who were willing to serve.

Notwithstanding the largest enrollment in Anderson's history--the
happy possibility that always inheres in a small college-that of know-
ing almost every student on the campus, still prevailed. Those jabs of
playful rivalry, the whole-spirited zest of mutual undertakings, the
mental jostlings for unprejudiced conclusions, and the nightly sharing
of intimate hopes for a trail-blazing future--all were expressions of our
faith in the other's integrity of purpose.

Amid the swirling eddies of our extracurricular life there is rush
and hurry, but there is more. All these meetings, plays, quartets, and
games serve the useful purpose of channelizing the urges of our
personalities. Their challenges, their frictions, their inspirations act
as catalysts which quicken our development into symmetrical human
beings. By serving today we learn better how to serve tomorrow.
From Here On-
When plans for an interesting Echoes began to evolve it was deemed
at least a worthy experiment to organize our extracurricular section in
a radically different manner. Beginning with six o'clock in the morn-
ing and continuing throughout an average school day we would pre-
sent the activities in the order in which they occurred. The early
morning hikes would come first, then the preschool period, the first
two morning class sessions, the chapel hour, etc. We thought that not
only might this be a new approach but a timesaver for the busy reader.
He would only have to think of the time an activity took place and
then turn to the section devoted to that paricular part of the day.
If he were not so busy and were just leafing through, he would get, we
thought, a truer, more kaleidoscopic view of campus life than in the
conventional subdivisions. The day would unroll before his eyes in the
same motley way it does when one is actually living it. We have
directed our best efforts in this endeavor and still hope to maintain our
artistic integrity. The staff hopes the reader will find his way around
easily and will at the same time be careful to look in the evening pages
for the basketball games, and in the chapel-hour pages for the clubs
and committees which met regularly at that hour, to mention only a
few items. Happy hunting!
Tumbling out of bed becomes more than a figure
of speech when the clubs decide to hike. That posse
of determined clubsters knows many expedients for
rousing the reluctant risers. Judiciously adminis-
tered, these measures effect large attendance on
our salutations to the bleak and gray dawn.
In the morning, worship to God seems natural
-so natural, in fact, that it is a customary ingredi-
ent of each club hike. Memories of enthusiastically
sung songs and sincere prayer given in this early
morning atmosphere will remain to motivate us long
after college days are over. Heads are bowedg the
fire crackles and hisses while the hilarious voices
that so recently shouted over rnuffed fly balls are
quiet. Suddenly one of the group begins to pray.
As his prayer rises in the crisp cold air a warmth
not of the fire steals into our veins and the wonder-
ful companionship becomes tangible and close. The
mystery of it glows for days.
But we must also speak of the breakfasts! Sizzling,
curling bacon-scalding paper-cupped coffee, fresh
golden-crusted doughnuts! There is poetry in those
simple words! With such friends as these a slab of
black bread would be a feast, indeed.
6:00 - 7:30
By 7:30 even the most procrastinating of the Knights of the
Dawn has reluctantly shut off the alarm clock and has, Balboa-
like, planted his feet upon the chilly linoleum. In the dorms
students stand patiently in line-toothbrush in hand, and hand
in eye--to perform cursory ablutions. In the cloakroom there
is frantic taking off of coats and searching for notebooks. In
the cafeteria kitchen Elsie Hehr makes the coffee and sees that
there is food for hungry, hurried freshmen. It is a busy fifteen

Note carefully .... that two-at-a-time gait on the south stairs is not a
product of uninhibited auroral ambitiong it is the result of the new curfew
in Sociology class. Such stringent discipline as the "two-minute edict" would
completely ruin digestion were it not for the open-door policy in Doctor
Martin's Bible 201. Maybe the good vice-president of our institution re-
members tbat a few of us must complete the cruel calisthentics of Russian
over the seventy-six steppes to return thc unopened reserve book to its lair.
Individualism is the keynote of the pre-chapel
period-albeit coerced individualism. Who knows?
Maybe those "melody masters" who trek to the
music hall to practice are sincere in their desire to
make the world a more interesting place. Anyway,
the new music hall solves the problem of those who
weren't localizing their vocalizing.
Pathetic Psychology hopefuls! The only time this
rare specie comes into the open for observation is
at this pre-chapel period. Even a few smatterings
of ignorance may stand one in good stead in the
moment of that inevitable "first question."
There are, we hear, Freshmen who are not in Dr.
Schminke's History class who still receive mail from
home. A few of these are in evidence as they plague
Agnes, the "girl at the desk" to ascertain the possi-
bility of a letter from home.

Even oft repetition could never quite suppress the emotional tingle
that came whenever the students rose to sing "Alma Mater" as a
prelude to another chapel hour. When, a moment later, Charlie Wilson
led them in a hymn or two, they sang with fervor and enthusiasm.
Then they heard the dean or the president read from the Scriptures
and somebody prayed. The announcements would follow and, at
length, the speaker of the morning.
Naturally, some of the speakers were dull and some only succeeded
in making everybody laugh. That is to be expected in any sequence of
orators. But many of them were inspiring-Miss Esther Boyer, Dr.
Jesse Bader, President Morrison, Reverend Bransford-to mention
only a few.
There was a variegated assortment of clever announcements this
year, too. From the' "poetry" of Milburn Miller to the elaborate
dialogues of costumed "characters"-they ran the full gamut of pic-
True to their name these girls are real companions and sp1'ead the

To the club and to their president, Mary Jean, our congratulations
on a grand start and best wishes for future years.

The vivacity of these lighthearted pepsters has heightened the
spirit of our College in gaiety and merriment. The production of the
comedy, "Powder Puff Girl," directed by Betty Jo and starring an all-
girl cast and the Maytime music festival, "An Hour of Charm,"
directed by Glenna Jean were crowning activities of the Pep Club this
year. The netted financial gains were presented in Bonds to the Alumni
Association for the new chapel.
The Dramatic Club
Acting is our job! We have, after a late start, produced three plays.
In our two comedies, "Sparkin' " and "Lost Elevator" we tried to do
the proverbial thing, "lay them in the aisles." Then in our major
production, "The Fool," we portrayed life's serious side.
Acting is not our only job. We have accomplished social develop-
ment with our personality clinic. We've had fun, too! il'here've been an
amateur hour and hikes.

With a little less swagger and a little more seriousness Cfor the most
party the Boosters had a hearty year of fun and usefulness this year.
There was never more intimate fellowship than in this time of
crisis. They had to lose Kenneth Kinion and Lee Daugherty during the
final semester-the former to the Infantry and the latter to a C.P.S.
camp, and the absence of Baxter, Newberry, Richardson, and Casto
was also sorely feltg but when Miss Lopez, during her address at the
annual banquet, mentioned the Boosters scattered over the world,
while the men stood with heads bowed, the warm comradeship seemed
intact again as the invisible links of memory spanned the miles. The
projects of the club this year included a substantial gift to the chapel
fund, a grand piano for the student reception room, books to aid the
devotional lives of students in the Service, and other smaller gifts.

There is something thrilling about a group of men bound together
by a common loyalty. This is especially true of a brotherhood that is
united to serve and increase its capacity for service. The Sachems,
leaders in service activities and in school spirit, incorporate the finest
aspirations of manhood in their motto: God first, others second, and
ourselves last. Many of the most outstanding Sachem braves were
taken from school to serve in the Armed Forces of our country. Among
those who left last year are: Carl Fortner, Richard Edmondson, Robert
Cantrell, Joe Crane, and LaNoyette Mayo. In spite of these grave losses,
the club has carried on an intensive program, the big project of the
year being work on a new concrete tennis court.

The Social Committee
Each year the social committee acts as a central agency for all
parties and social activities. It irons out details and, together with the
two deans, makes up the social calendar. The members this year are:
Dorothy Bryant, chairman, Louis Meyer, Naomi Hunter, June Cima,
and Maurice Bergquist.
Men's Progressive Association
The M.P.A. meets a few times each year during the chapel hour
to hear messages from the Dean of Men pertinent to the problems
of all men students, elect officers, plan an all-school party financed by
the men, and similar projects. This year the officers were: James
Trimble, presidentg Art Eikamp, vice-president, George Majors, secre-
tary-treasurer, and Robert Hurst, sergeant at arms.
Women's Student Government
This energetic group meets once a month. All the women students
are members and they meet for fellowship and discussion of all topics
of interest to women. They plan an all-school party, bring outstand-
ing speakers, and try to help all the women to integrate themselves
into college life. Their cabinet members are: Elizabeth Pistole, presi-
dentg Margaurette Upshaw, vice-presidentg Nellie Field, secretary-
treasurer, June Cima, judiciary chairmang Dorothy Nelis, lounge chair-
mang Kathryn Rider, Big-and-Little-Sister chairman, Lucille May,
social chairman, Olympia Sommersg and Mary Childers, worship chair-
Working, for the most part, during the school day, this year's Echoes staff met the challenge of a
war year with determination and fortitude. The first few months of the year saw James Trimble
go into action. With dynamic zeal and seemingly exhaustless enthusiasm he drove his "money-
changerf' Milburn Miller, and his advertising manager, Guy Perry, very insistently. Not that
either of them needed prodding. They went into their tasks with sleeves rolled up. Milburn reached
our circulation goal before we knew it and Guy-he of the silver-smooth manner-set an all-time
high for diplomatic, sincere salesmanship.
James deserves further credit for assisting in departments other than his own. When his own
work was finished he thoughtfully worked on layouts, did routine jobs, and even helped with the
copy. Maurice Bergquist contributed some vital, punch-full copy in his capacity as associate editor
so when a line hits you right between the eyes-oh, there is no mistaking a Bergquist witticism!
Art Eikamp prepared the feature pages and we think he deserves a good round hand.
Our photographer, Harold Phillips, not only Caurteously gave much of his valuable time to the
cause but every picture for which he was responsible was superb in lighting, sharpness, and detail.
The other members of the staff merit grateful mention also. Elizabeth Pistole, class editorg
Juanita Hunnex, layout assistant and editor of the service pagesg Nellie Field, religious life editorg
Pete Meyer, sports editorg and Betty Jo Schwieger, club editor-each of them strove to put
out the best Echoes possible without neglecting other necessary duties. The staff also wishes to thank
Naomi Hunter and Agnes Trimble for their very welcome help during some of the most trying
times of preparation.
The "editor in chief" this year was Milton Buettner. He tried very hard to meet dead lines but
it was almost a hopeless task. Pounding out copy in every spare moment, there never seemed time
enough to do all that had to be done.
A special word should be spoken for our very capable adviser, Professor Wallace, who kept us
close to the line by his steady, amiable frankness.
The art work in the book was done by Virginia Stage and Olympia Sommers and thanks are due
them for their helpful co-operation.

Wants to open the office Window, put one's head out, and yell a long-
drawn-out yell of vexation just for the relief of the thing. But during

Publishing a school yearbook is always an intriguing business, full
of hard work, crushing routine, and reportorial headaches, it is true,
but it is an exciting adventure, nonetheless. This year there were
enough complications to halt even a math teacher, yet the existence
of the book you now hold is proof enough that "we thought, we wrote,
Because in a time of critical events so many things are more im-
portant than the publishing of a school annual, our priority rating was
nil. Flashbulbs and film were difficult to procure. Pictures had to be
taken just once if indoors and hope for the best. Through no fault of
our photographer, who was as rushed as he was long-suffering, our
portraits were later than usual and we trimmed and pasted in white-
hot haste. Then, too, this year's staff was incredibly busy in other
school and church activities. Everybody had a job that did not release
him for Echoes work long enough and often enough to tackle the war-
time vicissitudes as efficiently as they should have been tackled.
But, in spite of all this, the Echoes is printed and We are not apol-
ogizing. It has meant a great deal to us to see the book shape up even
in the face of obstacles. The staff earnestly hopes your particular
memories are in it and that you will find it interesting, original and
Mail from Home
Each Monday and Wednesday and Friday, as soon as the president
nods dismissal from chapel, there is a gentle stampede for the mail-
boxes. No matter how fine the adjustment to college life, a letter from
home is always manna from heaven. One can tell by the way letters
are frantically ripped open and the contents reverently read. There
are people in "brown studies" so deep that a friendly push fails to
rouse them. Much staring off into space is in evidence. Occasionally
one sees a frown, and then the blue slip that occasioned it-an invita-
tion to see the Dean. Returned test papers bring out the best and
the worst in students, depending upon the grade. The mailbox rush
is a characteristic aspect of our school personality.
Ping-pong is a favorite sport with those students who cannot study
unless there is some physical and mental play introduced into the
schedule somewhere. The tournaments are followed with keen interest
and there is usually someone playing at all times except during chapel.
Our photographer, in wandering through the halls during the pre-noon
period, caught Wilma Perry and Dorothy Nelis by surprise. The sleepy
student in the library we refuse to identify, but you can be sure he
works in the factory at night. The unposed study shot in the reception
room was included to prove that there is some studying done before
noon. The class pictured is Dean Olt's Psychology class for freshmen.

The 12:00 siren blows and students skirmish for the exits. There is
food-forecasting as hungry underclassmen sniff the air. The line in
the cafeteria is long, as usual, but there are always friends to converse
with meanwhile. The menu board is scrutinized and tables chosen.
Those who have to work in the afternoon watch the clock with one
eye. Those who have a class at one o'clock discuss "atomic weights"
or "microspores" with worry-creases on their foreheads. Quartets
hurry to some practice room and rehearse for their radio broadcasts.
If the weather is nice outdoors huddles form to discuss the weather
or the fickleness of women or other social problems. The 12:50 siren
from the near-by plant is a signal for picking up books and starting
in once more on the afternoon grind.

Find groups of vivacious vagrants intent upon having a good time.
Even a Biology field trip can, upon occasion, become surprisingly inter-
esting. To many students it comes as a surprise that faculty members
can and do enjoy agrarian adventures as much-and in the same way
-as students. Who, having seen Dean Olt on the Summer School
Picnic, can deny it? Pictures such as the ones above remind us that
at Anderson College one must not be a cloistered pedant to get a
complete and valuable education.

Glad Tidings Chorus
The Glad Tidings Chorus is a permanent organization of Anderson
The Chorus is similar to a church choir. It meets three times a week
and opens with prayer followed by voicing and singing.
The Chorus renders sacred programs. These are presented in many
of the near-by towns during the school year.
Last year a tour was made through Indiana and Michigan touching
congregations in Detroit, Lansing, Kalamazoo, Fort Wayne, and
Huntington. At that time a tour was considered for the following
year, but because of gas rationing it became impossible.
A highly spiritual attitude has always been a part of the choral life.
This organization is under the supervision of Prof. H. C. Clausen,
Dorothy Bryant at the piano.
Department of Business Education
Introducing a New Department-
ANDERSON-A COMMUNITY LABORATORY
Anderson, an industrial center of America, a workshop of business
and industry, is the home of Anderson College and is a background
for its business department. Most of the business students secure part-
time work in the city, combining theory and practice. These contacts
with business are interesting and educational.
Business training is an integral part of the college curriculum at
Anderson College, for the business department is valuable to every
other department of the college as well as to the community in which
it is located.
There is an unprecedented demand for well-trained business people.
Those who, through preparation, plan for the future, will find oppor-
tunity for advancement, and they will provide the leadership in
education in this field.
Our work is practical, as is evidenced by appreciation of our prod-
uct, because business, industry, and the Government are looking to
us for aid in this work.
The department offers an accelerated program of business training
on the junior college level to meet the needs of students who desire
semiprofessional training. It also offers a four-year program where
students may major in business or in teacher-training. The business
curriculum consists of general education, socio-business subjects, and
Counseling, guidance, and advisory facilities are available to assist
students in discovering their abilities, aptitudes, and interests for a
business training program and to aid students in planning a program
to fit their individual needs.
If Solomon's assertion "of making books there is no end," is true
it is not surprising that onels study of a subject should have no termi-
nation. Verily, study is the inevitable element in a college curriculum-
whether it is done in the library, the reception room, on the job, or
in the noisy precincts of one's room. Hurried as college life must be,
it demands wise use of one's time .... and that means for most of us
more studying! Such a demand is hardly austere when one remembers
that his intense cogitations may be carried on in such pleasant areas
as those pictured below.
To help the boys and girls keep physically fit, Coach Dane has de-
veloped a more extensive and complete physical education program
this year than ever before. The classes of his department were the
largest in the history of the school. Besides the regularly scheduled
classes each week, every Tuesday and Thursday night the gym was
opened to those who had to work in the day. Marching, tennis, shuffle-
board, table tennis, tumbling and many other activities were con-
ducted throughout the year. This year, more than ever before, each
student realized the urgent necessity of the recreational and physical
educational program in his daily routine.

PETE MEYER--Sturdy, team-spirited son of Texas made an invaluable contribution to the
team in this, his second year on the varsity squad. Pete made every shot count-an
excellent quality, not to mention his defensive genius.
THURMAN HALL-Thurman helped to strengthen both our defense and offense. One of
the swiftest men on the team, he was a good ball-handler as well as guard. His offensive
ability proved a great asset to the team.
The Ravens began the season in their usual fashion this year by
defeating Giffin in the Home-coming game, 27 to 17. It seems as if
our games were rationed along with a few other things since we were
able to complete only seven of our originally scheduled twenty because
of inadequate transportation facilities. Despite the fact that Uncle
Sammy left only two lettermen with us this year and the majority of
the team was composed of new material, Coach Dane's boys showed
more "scrap" than any other team for the past season or two. According
to many devout and loyal spectators, the '42-,43 Ravens had a better
"fighting spirit" than has been displayed on the hardwood for some
After losing two games each to Huntington and Franklin, the Ravens

The Year in Song
"He who hath no music in his soul" is certainly not fit for Anderson
College. ln spite of much contrary opinion, duets are not the only
product of our college. In fact, in the field of music we produce duets,
trios, quartets and other vocal groups. While many of these are
ephemeral, many more develop into working ensembles. The quartet
pictured below, consisting of Charlie Wilson, Bill Melton, Charles
Williams, and Guy Perry was probably the most active such en-
semble during the first semester of the school year.
Into their cars each Sunday evening go the intrepid group of young
people represented in the upper left-hand picture-to Muncie to
broadcast the message of salvation.
Many colorless hours have been brightened at the Nursing Center
through the music and testimonies of college students.
Other fervent students have been responsible for the new hope
that has captured the souls of men and women contacted in the city
Church attendance among the college students is very high.

Four Chinese boys have found their lives enriched because four
girls sacrificed Sunday afternoons to teach them to read and write

Diminutive Daniel, the scantily clad urchin armed with an arrow
and a bow, has had trouble with the United States Army. No, Daniel
hasn't been drafted, as the pictures on this page will bear mute testi-
mony, but some of his most promising prospects have been forced to
suspend operations for the duration due to Uncle Sam's crooking his
finger in their direction.
The pictures on this page are symbolic of the many others who
answer the eternal call of spring when a young man's fancy lightly
turns to that which the young lady has been thinking about all winter.
As the tender shoots come peeping out due to the mysterious pres-
sure of life within, and the irresistible attraction of the June sun
without, new life begins to throb within the breast of the college stu-
dent. Suddenly astronomy becomes most engrossing and students can
be seen on any moonlight night on the campus studying the heavenly
bodies as they swing relentlessly in their eternal orbits, but thinking
of some celestial being not so far removed.

i Lest We Forget
We dedicate this page with sincere appreciation to those fine young
men, who, only a short time ago, were the pride of our campus, but
who are now in the service of our country.
To some may come honors and citations for heroic service, to some
may come wounds and suffering-and even death. But whatever may
come, we know that our boys will give their best.
To each one who is already in the Service, and to those who will be
going, we say, "Best of luck to you-and may the Great Shepherd
watch over and keep you."

Alumni Achievements 1942
BY I. K. DAWSON
The year just closed witnessed the most significant accomplishments in the
twenty-two years' history of the Anderson College Alumni Association. The
Silver Anniversary of the College was celebrated throughout the year. The
effects of this celebration were constructive and far-reaching. Anderson Alumni
were everywhere stirred to greater efforts in support of their Alma Mater,
many prospective students were contacted and new contributors to the Alumni
Fund were found. The celebration culminated with the burning of a 515,000
mortgage that had stood for twelve years against the College. Gross receipts
for the year totaled approximately twenty-two thousand dollars.
THE ALUMNI OFFICE
An office with a full-time secretary and an assistant is maintained the year
round on the first floor, southwest wing, of the main college building.

Who's Who among Students in
American Universities and
Who's who in Anderson College? Those whose pleasant personality pro-
pensities and extraordinary executive excellence mark them as leaders in their
collegiate circles. Eight new students were awarded the honor of being selected
from the student body in our college this year . . . selected upon the basis of
outstanding scholarship, participation in school service activities, interest in
extracurricular activities, and possession of leadership characteristics. These
students as well as the five remaining from last year's selections are listed
in a book, Whois Who among American Colleges and Universities, a volume
which is used by numerous businesses and industries in finding representative
students to take responsible positions. Richard Edmonson, one of the eight
selected this year, is not shown in the above photograph because we were
unable to procure his picture.

A Campus Portrait-In Tribute
"O Master, let me walk with Thee
In lowly paths of service free."
These are more than the words of a song to our perennial brother
"Charley": they are the embodiment of a life philosophy. Whether
acting as a conscience for "careless" students, laundering the windows,
ferrying the precious missiles of home mail to the college post office,
brandishing a broom, or merely giving the Lord credit for the weather,
tempestuous or inclement though it may be, Brother Kissel is, through
it all, walking the paths of humble service with his friend-the Man
An Unusual Artistic Event
Students of Anderson College were highly honored during the
second semester by the visit of the distinguished pianist Jerold Fred-
eric who played a varied program in the college chapel before an over-
flow audience. Mr. Frederic, a former resident of Anderson, was ap-
preciative of the welcome accorded him here, and spoke warmly of
the fine spirit and co-operation of the students who helped get things
ready for the concert. On their part, they fell completely under the
spell of the music and looked wistfully ahead to a similar concert be-
fore very long. Part of a local news comment follows:
"A brilliant performance which provided a special thrill for his local audience
was given last night by Jerold Frederic . . . in a piano concert at Anderson
College. Mr. Frederic, one of the foremost young artists of the day, won an
accolade of praise from his more than capacity audience, several of whom
sat on the stage in order to hear the former local young man.
"His Chopin and Beethoven numbers were acclaimed as pianistic master-
pieces of technique, tonal clarity and poetic mood. Mr. Frederic's own trans-
criptions of "Casey Jones," "Deep River," and "Yankee Doodle" gave proof
of his highly individual interpretation and approach, and the Liszt, with which
he closed his program, was one of the few truly perfect accomplishments which
Anderson audiences have been privileged to hear.
"Mr, Frederic was called back over and over for encores, which he generously
gave. The audience was one of the most enthusiastic ever seen here."
The day of regimented costumes, black and red grease paint, en-
forced trips down the tubular fire escape, and myriad other humilia-
tions for the bewildered freshmen reached a climax of fun this year
when the sensational sophomores tugged the husky freshmen into
Killbuck Creek in a few seconds flat. The gym-"nasty"-cs shown above
will also be remembered. There were fun, frolic and fellowship for
everyone-including the revenge-anticipating freshmen.

And Now, Au fleaanl
It is time to close this year's book of reminiscences with a per-
sonalized farewell. The year was closely packed with incident
and we could not hope to include all that happened. Just the
high lights that would set the tone of the year could be selected.
But we believe that the emphases are right and the illustrations
The textbooks are closed forever, the lockers are empty, and
the rubber erasers are safe in the safe.
Hands are clasped, good-bys spoken on crowded station plat-
forms, and a few tears hastily dashed off. The halls silently wait
for next year's mad inHux.
That you have relived some vivid emotional experiences, had
a pleasant amble through the corridors of the months, and in
addition entertained a lively apprehension of the quality of this
year's collegiate life is the earnest hope of

Perhaps you feel that a general education has peace-
time values only . . . that it is more or less wasted in
the Hghting forces or in specialized war work.
That is not the case. Whatever your Held of study, you
have acquired in your college career two great abili-
ties which have currency at all times, under all
conditions. They are the ability to think for your-
self, and the ability to "get along" with the people
These you are offering to America in this fight for
freedom. And when Victory is won, they will be
applied to establishing your place in a world of greater
opportunity than ever before.
