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.

two deans, makes up the social calendar. The members this year are:

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-

Trials and Triumphs of Cl Wartime
Every editor and his staff are familiar with those times when one
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
wartime I doubt whether even that drastic expedient would help very
much. There is too much to shout about if one were in the mood to
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
