K “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women in it merely players. They have their exits and their en¬ trances; and one man in his time plays many parts.”—Shakespeare A 3 tvama • Limited Edition Hollis S. Pistole, editor in chief Louis P.

Nations must suffer directly and indirectly. The cost of war can be calculated in terms of dollars but the price of human sacrifice is unfathomable. We know that war is not the result of reasoning but the tool of a few who hope to usurp fortunes and kingdoms at the point of the sword. It is unfortunate that so many innocent and peace-loving people should have to suffer because of war—but so long as there is hate and not love, we shall have to contend with the evils of war. To those fellows who have put aside their schoolbooks for implements of war, not willingly, but because the call of duty was greater than personal gain . . . and to those who gave “their last full measure of devotion” on some far-flung battlefield . . . we humbly dedicate the 1945 Echoes. “ . . . and that we here highly resolve that these honored d ead shall not have died in vain . . . ” -LINCOLN Q. 9. feill o-jj RiXfJdi Already the war has ended for thousands of soldiers who have been discharged from the Service. Many things are being done for these returning soldiers, but perhaps the most important is the “G.I. Bill of Rights,” which entitles the veteran to an education at govern¬ ment expense. Some of these veterans have already taken advantage of the benefits offered them and have found their way to Anderson College. What finer place could the ex-serviceman choose in which to resume his education than Anderson College? The warmth of a Christian college and the wholesome fellowship with our youth combined with the excellent courses offered at Anderson College give us a top-ranking priority in the field of education for the veteran. To those who are eligible now, and to those who will be eligible when their job is finished, Anderson College opens its doors and says, “Welcome, G. I. Joe!” . . and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any 9 9 more. —MICAH President Morrison ex¬ tends a hearty welcome to Quentin Withrow, who left school in 1941 to enter the armed forces. He returned last Sep¬ tember after three and a half years in the Service. Lieut. Withrow as he appeared in the uniform of Uncle Sam. A radio is a good investment these days when history is being made in such memorable fashion. Paulina Ash and Elliott Ferrell catch up on the latest news. In these times of turmoil and upheaval it is a comfort to read from the Book of Life and find strength. Amy Du- deck meditates upon the Word lliete ate SesUauA Jimel • • • As the war clouds gradually diminish over the face of the earth, a new hope arises in the hearts of its people. That hope is built upon the fact that if men will work together as brothers in the building of the peace, they can live together as brothers in the postwar world. The students at Anderson have been keenly interested in the peace plans and have given their support to the building of good will and a better understanding of our world neighbors. Some of them have been preparing themselves for the great task of rehabili¬ tation in the years ahead; all of us have pledged our efforts to the winning and the keeping of the peace. Can you find Iwo Jima? Noreen Eliason, John Kane, Jr., and Rachel Boggess try to locate the tiny island that serves as a steppingstone to Japan. Qn ytUe GamfLub ... When six hundred students get together on our cam¬ pus, coming as they do from almost every state in the Union and several foreign countries, with different cul¬ tures, different backgrounds of education, religion, interests, etc., they bring with them a contribution to the campus life. It is that free mingling of older pastors with younger theological students, discharged veterans of World War II with fellows under draft age, missionaries with young Christians, the married with the unmarried, Liberal Arts with Seminary stu¬ dents, that makes Anderson College rich in its heritage of truth. It is that giving and sharing that enriches the personalities and deepens the convictions and strength¬ ens the ideals of our students. “Life is divided into three terms—that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present and from the present to live better for the future.”—Wordsworth Ann Shervey and Warren Johnson relax between clas¬ ses under “ye olde Oak tree.” Tim Karamitros (now in the Service), Evelyn Meyer, Helen Richardson, and Janice Brad¬ ley pose gracefully on the front steps with “Old Main’’ in the background. ■ “For what is so rare as a day in June?” Eunice Morrison, Wilfred Fore¬ man, Helen Marshall, and Imojene Martindale enjoy a bit of poetry from the old masters. “Is that really you, Paul?” Thelma Jones and Paul Whalen scan the family album. Looks as if Thelma has found a prize picture. Id 1 EDUCATION “What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the human soul. The phi¬ losopher, the saint, the hero, the wise, and the good, or the great, very often lie hid and concealed in a plebeian, which a proper education might have disinterred and brought to light.”—Addison It seems that the “Hitler gang” was all wrong about how Europe would look in another generation. Bill Farlow (now in the Service) and Virginia Mishler compare notes on the subject.

Spanish Club The Spanish Club meets monthly for a dinner meeting and program of Spanish music and enter¬ tainment. The aim of the club is the spiritual sig¬ nificance and discernment of the needs of the Span¬ ish-speaking peoples. It is hoped that the club will ultimately contribute some of its members to work among the Spanish¬ speaking people. Ellsworth Palmer, president Jessie Tressler, secy.-treas. Bill Pulos, vice-president Dr. Osborne, sponsor Classics Club The Classics Club fosters appreciation of the class¬ ical cultures by inviting capable speakers to lec¬ ture on Greek and Roman philosophy, art, and liter¬ ature.

Miss Koglin, sponsor Act 2 RELIGION “The noblest charities, the best fruits of learning, the richest discoveries, the best institutions of law and justice, every greatest thing the world has seen, represents, more or less directly, the fruitfulness and creativeness of re¬ ligion.”—Horace Bushnell Students at Anderson find that religion is a vital part of life and is to be cherished. Wanda Ane- walt, George Van Norman, and Effie Lou Crawford pause for a moment of worship. Chapel After thirty-three months in the South Pacific, Chaplain Wendell Byrd, a graduate of Anderson College, returned home. He spoke in one of the chapel services and gave an interesting account of his experiences in the Service. Among the many special features presented in chapel was this musical trio. Ellsworth Palmer plays the vibraharp, Helen Hamlin, the solovox, and Ardeth Cleveland accom¬ panies them on the piano. High Lights The singing of the “Alma Mater” signals the begin¬ ning of the chapel period. It may be a special worship service, or we may have some outstanding minister, educator, businessman, or professional man as our guest speaker. The chapel period is a vital session for the improvement of our thinking, the strengthen¬ ing of our religion, and the dedication to the task of giving the best we have to the cause for which we stand. Assistant Fire Chief Mark Bro- sier, of the Anderson Fire De¬ partment, delivered an address on fire prevention at one of the first chapel sessions of the year. The Year This Ministers’ Quartet has done consider¬ able singing this year for the churches in An¬ derson and vi¬ cinity. The members are A. O. Jenkins, Fred Bird, Thomas Spen¬ cer and Roy Sauls. Echoes from Calvary” Quartet Ambassador Trio The girls have rendered a real service to the School and the community by their fine singing and splendid spirit. The trio consists of Ella Cleveland, Helen Hamlin, Phyllis Schaffer, and Ardeth Cleveland, accompanist. In Song One of the finest con¬ tributions to the music at Anderson College this year came when the Pep Club Chorus made its debut. Under the skillful direction of Mrs. John Kane, the chorus has sung be¬ fore many audiences with outstanding harmony. Pep Club Chorus Orpheus Male Chorus Another addition to the music groups at Anderson College this year is the Or¬ pheus Male Chorus. The men sing with lusty enthusiasm and have won the admi¬ ration of one and all. Professor Paul Breit- weiser is the di¬ rector. Ordained Ministers ' Fellowship One of the newcomers to the already impressive list of Anderson College organizations is the Ordained Ministers’ Fellowship, organized in 1943. The members of the fellow¬ ship, which includes all ordained ministers in the school, meet twice a month, at which time authorities in various fields are invited to discuss pertinent topics. A. O. Jenkins, president George Ramsey, secretary Brooks Linn, vice-president Dr. Martin, sponsor Christian Volunteers Pictured above are a few of the forty young people who last summer gave from two to ten weeks of their time and service to some form of religious service. The program was inaugurated by a committee composed of Irene Smith Caldwell, T. Franklin Miller, and A. Leland Forrest. It was through their efforts that many of the young people were placed and guided in their summer activity. The services of these young people were given in vacation church schools, Japanese relocation centers, migrant work, mountain mission work, and Indian mission work. The plans for this year include an expansion of the work started last year and a larger number of workers. Student Volunteer Union Clifford Thor, -president Bessie Brown, vice-president Mae Johnson, recording secy. Dr. Adam W. Miller, faculty adviser Wilma Ratcliff, corresp. secy. Robert McFarling, treasurer The Student Volunteer Union has a threefold purpose: 1. To provide and carry out an adequate program of missionary education among the students. 2. To stimulate a missionary interest and spirit among the stu¬ dents, to the end that they will exhibit concern and support for missionary enterprises. 3. To be instrumental in leading men and women to dedicate themselves to missionary work. Among the speakers that were heard in the weekly meetings this year were several returned missionaries, Miss Enid Pugh, traveling secretary, and representatives from missionary-minded organizations from other colleges. The proceeds from the missionary play presented this year, The Years Ahead, are to be used for the Student Volunteer Union project—a mission station in South America. One of the more popular trios around school is com¬ posed of Fern Bruner, Frances Steenbergen, and Helen Jo Perry. Paul Rakyta, Opal Heck¬ man, Leona Gregory, and Paul Whalen, in choir robes, await the chord to begin a hymn. The depth and feeling of the Negro spirituals can only be interpreted in their true beauty by those of their own race. Here we have George and Fran¬ ces Gibbs, David Hill, Re¬ becca Robinson and Ross Mitchell who give us a sample of the spirituals. Act 3 PHYSICAL “In our world of today, too much em¬ phasis has been placed upon the de¬ velopment of the intellect and too little attention given to the development of the body. What shall a man profit if he shall gain all knowledge and despair of health ? ’ ’—Selected Our rangy center, Quentin With¬ row, reaches in vain for the ball that the Herculean center of Giffin College controls. Basketball Team Returning to the hardwood floor after an absence of several years, the Ravens made a good showing in spite of the loss of several players to the Service and the consequent lack of reserve strength. The team as it appeared before its first game is shown above. Front row: Wilfred Fore¬ man, Don Smith, Cecil Craig, Albert Grice, Bill Farlow (in the Service), Herb Streeter, Earl VanSipe, and Oscar Borden. Back row: Jim Shell, student manager, Quentin Withrow, J. D. Thomason, Tim Karamitros (in the Ser¬ vice), Ernest Owen, Bill Baxter, captain, Edwin Upshaw, Louis Meyer, Warren Johnson, Ferd Thoma, Dr. White, coach. Basketball Schedule The final results show that Anderson won four and lost six games during the season. A new addition to the schedule was Ball State Teacher’s College of Muncie. Won Lost Anderson vs. Giffin _ 1 Anderson vs. Earlham _ 1 Anderson vs. Ball State . 2 Anderson vs. Huntington _ 2 Anderson vs. Taylor ... _ 1 1 Anderson vs. Central Normal .... 2 Cheer Leaders Five cheer lead¬ ers were se¬ lected this year.

[Senior] Quentin Withrow, center, does a fancy job of shooting. [Sophomore] Oscar Borden, guard, playing his first year on the regular team. [Junior] Pete Meyer, strong on the defense and good team man. [Senior] Bus Upshaw, forward, shared the scoring honors with Baxter. [Senior] On the Hardwood Earl VanSipe, forward, small, but a good man in reserve. [Sophomore] Bill Farlow, forward, persistent and improving.

Getting down to business. “Keep your eye on the ball.” Three would-be track stars toe the mark on the cinders. The spring sports were hampered considerably by lack of facilities for practice and games. This resulted in the cancel¬ lation of tennis and track, and a curtailment of baseball.

Act 4 ACTIVITIES “Some men have a genius for friend¬ ship. That is because they are open and responsive, and unselfish. They truly make the most of life; for apart from their special joys, even intellect is sharpened by the development of friend¬ ships. No material success in life is com¬ parable to success in friendship . . . the culture of friendship is a duty.” —Hugh Black Ardyce Eliason makes a pur¬ chase from Sachem Ernest Owen at Sachem Club case.

The Pepsters just bubble with enthusiasm about their jobs. In addition to their many activities they incorporated the Pep Club Chorus as a part of their club work this year and we have had some wonderful music from them. They presented Peps-a-Poppin to raise funds for their project of a prayer room in Sunset Hall. Furthermore they found time for hikes and a slumber party dur¬ ing the year. I The spirit of the Booster Club is reflected in their em¬ blem, the cross which stands for the strength of religion, and the fleur d’France which symbolizes loyalty to a cause. It is for the ideals represented on the Booster emblem that the club strives to promote campus ac¬ tivities and intercollegiate participation in sports. This year they presented the De Volt sisters, harpist and violinist, in a concert; awarded gold basketballs and chains to members of the basketball team, founded a scholarship for a worthy athlete, and contributed to the “Buy a Book” campaign. BOOSTER Booster Hollis Pistole, president; Maurice Mauch, vice-president; Bill Baxter, secretary; Paul Rakyta, treasurer; Dr. Schminke, sponsor. Camarada Effie Lou Crawford, ' president Helen Hamlin, secretary Arlene Stevens (second semester) Helen McDermott, treasurer Margaret Snider, vice-president Charlotte Brooks, historian Miss Ponder, sponsor CAMARADA “Hands clasp in fellowship for service” characterizes the spirit and the purpose of the Camarada Club. Uniting in fellowship for service, they have sponsored a tutor for a young Chinese Christian. The lounge in the women’s dormitory has been beautifully remodeled to provide a pleasant place for friends to gather. The club’s activities were piloted first by Effie Lou Crawford and later by Arlene Stevens. Effie Lou met with an unfortunate accident at the close of the first semester. We are eagerly looking forward to her re¬ turn next fall. Sachem is an Indian name for leader or chief. The Sachems incorporate the finest aspirations of manhood in their motto: God first, others second, self last. The projects of the club this year included the in¬ stallation of a stamp machine for the College, free postal cards to students for writing to congressmen about national affairs, donation of a clock for the cafeteria and a repeated donation of books to the college library.

Edwin Upshaw, vice-president Emery Williams, sgt . at arms Dr. Kardatzke, sponsor Nawaka Toula Veikos, president June Burkhart, secy.-treas. Clara Richardson, vice-president Miss Johnson, sponsor Originally organized in September 1935, the Nawaka Club took its name from an Indian word meaning “friendship.” Some time later the club was reorganized and now is serving with great enthusiasm. The basic purpose of the club is to generate friendship and fel¬ lowship among freshman women. It has achieved that goal successfully. This was one of the most active years in the history of the Dramatics Club. Plays presented included Ghost Wanted, Thursdays at Home, Hurricane Hill, Bread, Polly Wants a Cracker, The Hoosier Schoolmaster, and The Neighbor. The purpose of the club is the develop¬ ment of personality through creative interpretation. Among the projects carried through by the Dramatics Club were the purchase of black-out curtains for the showing of films in the chapel, and raising of funds for the “Buy a Book” campaign for the library. Do¬ nations were made toward the conversion of the gym into a playhouse—a $3,000 project which will take three years to complete. Dramatics A. O. Jenkins, president Effie Lou Crawford, treasurer Janice Bradley, secretary Wilma Perry, vice-pres. Mary Lou Johnson (acting) Dr. Eaton, sponsor Eastern Club George Van Norman, president Naomi Hunter, vice-president Grace Norwat, secretary Emery Williams, treasurer Dr. and Mrs. Adam Miller, sponsors The Eastern Club was formed four years ago for the purpose of fel¬ lowship. During these four years the project of the club has been the raising of an annual scholarship fund for a worthy student from the East. This year they raised money for the new chapel, in addition to their main project. Meetings are held monthly. Colorado The Colorado Club was or¬ ganized during this school year for the purpose of stimulating interest among prospective Anderson Col¬ lege students from Colorado. The rapid increase of Colo¬ rado students enrolled with¬ in the past four years shows that this goal is being ac¬ complished. Helen McDermott, president Celia Brock, vice-president Estalee Barr, secy.-treas. Dr. and Mrs. White, sponsors Dames Club The Dames Club was formed last year to further social ac¬ tivities among married women students and wives of students. Meetings are held monthly in the various homes. One of the activities of the club this year was the presentation of the play, A Question of Clothes. Frances Forrest, president Elizabeth Pistole, vice-president Thelma Miller, secretary Loree Jolliff, treasurer Mrs. J. A. Morrison, sponsor Day Dodgers Day Dodgers have completed their fourth year of service to the girls who live outside the dormitories. The organization is a branch of the Women’s Student Government Associa¬ tion. Meetings are held monthly. The purpose of the club is fellowship, service and utility. Amber Guffey, president Almeda Rawlings, vice-president Phyllis Matzigkeit, secretary Betty Meehan, treasurer Helen Marshall, club reporter Valera Notley, program chairman Virginia Mishler, Irene Lee, publicity agents Dr. Osborne, sponsor Echoes Faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles in producing an Annual after three long years of war and wartime rationing and restrictions, the Echoes staff plunged unhesitatingly into the maze of technicalities and regulations, with the determi¬ nation that we must have a 1945 Echoes. Now we can confidently say that we have run the gauntlet of the difficulties and have been victorious in our struggle to give to the student body a 1945 Echoes. It is the purpose of the staff to stage a reproduction of the high lights and side lights of the year on the campus and to portray them in true dramatic style. It is our hope that as the “players pass across the stage of action” they will awaken fond memories of many a pleasant hour, and make the year a living reality for decades to come.

Blackwell, ’28, president Mr. Blackwell, Manager of South Bend, Indiana, branch of Western and Southern Life Insurance Company, has pushed Alumni activities for years. He is always ready with time and money to forward Anderson College. In addition to being a capable business executive, Mr. Blackwell is a progressive layman, song director, and soloist. Elmer Rich, ’31, ’41, first vice-president Pastor of First Church of God in North Denver, Colorado, Reverend Rich is a strong booster for Anderson College. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Gospel Trumpet Company and editor of the Colorado church paper. Reverend Rich is a man of ideas and works tirelessly as a leader of youth. Robert H. Reardon, ’40, second vice-president Reverend Reardon, pastor of Brookhaven Church of God, Chester, Pennsylvania, is a graduate of Oberlin Theological Seminary. He is a leader in Alumni affairs in the East, and has great ideas for building up our college library. Among his other interests, Reverend Reardon is an organist. Helen A. Holton, recording secretary Miss Holton has been secretary to President Morrison for a number of years. She is a booster for every good thing for the College and Alumni Association. Miss Holton is also an active missionary officer and worker with youth. John H. Kane, executive secretary A Year of Improvement Since the big celebration of the burning of the mortgage which had stood against the College for twelve years, your Alumni Association seems to have found itself. That wonderful Silver Anniversary event convinced us that as an organization we can do really worth-while things for our College. In 1943-’44 we made satisfactory progress in raising our Alumni Fund for the new college chapel and college operating expenses. The closing of our fiscal year on June 30, 1945, will show that we have stayed in the harness and again pulled strongly for meeting college oper¬ ating expenses and for raising money for the college chapel. The war has altered and completely changed many an individual and corporate program. The Alumni organization has come in for its share of altered programs. Our government has a plan for providing a college education for returning servicemen and Anderson College is on the government’s approved list of colleges for these veterans. We anticipate increasing en¬ rollment of men as the war terminates. We must have a new dormitory to care for this larger enrollment. The least we can do for our fine young people who come here is to provide good housing and thus make their days at Anderson College pleasant ones. This is an urgent need. We feel that we should take a breathing spell from our money-raising efforts for the chapel and get at this dormitory need at once. We believe that each Alumni member would make this same suggestion if he were in our place. The National Alumni Association officers recommend that we hold the college fund intact until the time when we can build the chapel. In the meantime, we shall turn our attention at once to this urgent dormitory need. This need would have normally come, but it has been thrust upon us now by war. Do not think that because of this emergency move your Alumni Association has lost its interest in an adequate college chapel. Such is not the case. The chapel shall come to pass. We wish to think of this effort and other efforts that may in the course of events come to our attention as providing for us an opportunity to engage in A YEAH OF IMPROVEMENT for our College. Thus, the Alumni Association seeks to render a needed service to every Alumni member, to the Church, and to the College. Act 5 FEATURES “The joys I have possessed are ever mine; out of my reach, behind eternity, hid in the sacred treasure of the past, but blest remembrance brings them hourly back.”—Dryden Snow lovers Fran Steenbergen and Evelyn Tuttle found ample opportunity for expressing them¬ selves this past winter. Campus Queen Naomi Hunter, auburn-haired Queen, proves that Pennsylvania can really grow them lovely. She is a Senior in the Liberal Arts School and find it no trouble to make a hobby of collecting records for her radio- phonograph. Campus Queen quickly learns her ABC’s at the innocent age of two and one-half years. Social Life The students of Anderson College this year had the privilege of attend¬ ing many outstanding entertainments. Coupled with the presentations of the several service clubs of the College was the splendid series of the Ander¬ son Civic Music Association. The Booster Club presented the DeVolt sisters, harpist and violinist, in a con- At left: Leona Tussey and Eunice Baxter act as hostesses at the concert given by the Booster Club.

In addition to these artists there were many plays, special programs and educational films. The game of Chinese checkers is a puzzler for some but not for Max Harriger and Eunice Jones. Mar¬ garet Snyder offers her advice when needed. Making use of the new stamp machine installed by the Sa¬ chem Club is Marilyn Reed. It takes lots of stamps on lots of letters to keep the boys in the Service happy — so get your stamp and write that letter. Jewell Boone and Patricia Stuber are studying romantic history. That is, they are study¬ ing with deep interest the par¬ ticular spot on the map where some of the armed forces are stationed. The reception room at Sunset Hall is the scene of the “knit fest.” Included in the picture are Helen Marshall, Helen Jo Perry, Virginia Mishler, Imo- jene Martindale, and Ardyce Eliason. HOME Rev. W.

Helen Holton tries to ring the neck of the chicken—with a jar rubber, of course—with Miss Germany and Mrs. Kane as interested bystanders. It is all in fun and is sponsored by the Sachem Club. Between halves at the Home- Coming basketball game the faculty “gang up” on the poor chicken—it is a race and winner takes all. The “dark horse” (Dr. Kar- datzke) catches the fowl in a final spurt down the home stretch. More fun! Some of the boys are having a “ducky” time with good-natured Alumnus Virgil Johnson.
