Intelligent desire 'me' becomes a powerful and far-reaching cause such as seldom has appeared in our World. Disciplined and corrected by experience and reflection, it directs vast energies and materials of nature to secure its ends, removes mountains of obstacles, opens the doors of choice, and creates the very possibilities it believes in, by tl1row- ing into the scale those elements of cause which become the deciding factors.

Why have they always sought a ship and 7 Lt I iii the sea for youthful adventure? . . . But why does a ii 1452.5 ' h ' b ' profound wisdom of the past ever crouc in su mis- siveness to the uncertainties of a future? .... Perhaps men are like ships! Like massive liners ever colorful and representative of millions in capitalg like lowly tugs never venturing from the fogs of the harborg or like ancient wind-jammers the bravest of them all .... Men as shipsg the black depths of the ocean as the future's uncertainties! An ever active mass of them on a vastness of water that opposes idleness and strains to tear them away from anchor chains and hawsers. They slip across the seas with ports of destination leagues ahead. Between are mile on mile of heaving billows that ceaselessly slip astern . . . between are all the uncertainties of time and chance, fair weather with favorable winds and a foaming wake, or a shrieking gale and mountainous seas that snatch at scudding low, black clouds .... A mere speck afloat on the surrounding immensity of the ocean .... Blown off the course in a sudden hurricaneg sounding along a dangerous lee shore in hopeless fogsg or becalmed in the great stagnant sea of Sargasso. The science of modern navigation, the study of charts, the knowledge of advantageous currents, tides to be awaited, shoals and reefs to be avoided, are the necessary guides. The ship must be strong and the captain brave. The compass, the sextant, the chronometer, never fail for they are the instru- ments of science and intelligence. Those who reach their suc- cessful destinations do not steer by dead-reckoning.

FRANCES KNOX BALDWIN Jmifm, Kentucky EDUCATION 20 i fl' ANTIOCH'S LEFT WING Q XURING the year following Antiochls reorganization gli nine years ago there was little in the way of stu- - dent activities to indicate that the liberal element A- e - among the students would ever become prominent or even active on the campus. The student body was composed mainly of two types, the "Rah Rah" people, and the conserva- tive dignified people. Here and there one might find a solitary highbrow who talked about the latest books, and considered himself intellectual. But there was, in the broader sense, no left wing. We were too busy getting acquainted with each other. The campus was a frontier, or rather a no-man's land. Trench- es, debris, heatless rooms, half-completed plumbing, and fresh paint gave the place an air of change and uncertainty which was not conducive to the products of leisure. The first gang of students was a rough one. Nearly all were freshmen, and they came from all over the country. There was no tradition. There were no publications. There was nothing but ditches and mud. We assembled now and then to roar out our football songs, and in the evenings we raged about in the men's dorm, wreck- ing each other as Well as the furniture. Of my particular friends that first year practically all were fired either for drinking, low scholarship, or general undesirability. The turn- over was astonishing. 2I ROBERT FRANCIS BALDNVIN Wiillouglzby, Ullio Industrial lllarzagement Student Government, Sophomore Representative 1925-263 Service Coun- cil, Nlanager 1925-265 Baker House, Treasurer 1928-295 Polygon Club, Antioch Loan Association.

The Antioch Parliament is doing excellent work. Social equal- ity has become a live issue.

The Antioch Branch of the League of Nations Association has been organized. Antioch, today, is a livelier and more desirable place from the stand- point of liberal student movements, than it ever has been be- fore. 31 CECIL FOSTER JOHNSON Newark, Ohio ENGINEERING Community CounciI5 Antioch Chapter A.

That was a great year for liberal activities. The Blaze attracted a more representative group and did not produce a clique as the League of Youth had done. But most of the liberal leaders graduated in 1926. The next year was a lean one. A new magazine, the Nofzrcnsor, founded by Walter Kahoe, made its appearance, with poetry and philo- sophical humor as its aim, and shared staff members with the Blaze. For two years liberal activities were on the decline. The Nofzscfzsor degenerated and died. The Blaze was growing weaker. Horace Chanapney was out of school. Discussion groups stopped. The promotion of interracial meetings was left to the faculty. Very little happened in the way of student liberal activities. ' Blaze activity may be taken as a fair barometer of liberal doings at Antioch during the past Hve years. In the school year of 1927-1928 only two issue of the Blaze appeared. Other things were happening to some extent. It was during that year that telegrams, signed by over half the student body, were sent to Washington protesting America's policy in Nicaragua, and as a result of student activity this political protest was taken up considerably beyond the campus. The arrival of Dr. Broda in Yellow Springs was perhaps the most important event on the liberal calendar for the year. During the following year the Antioch Parliament was organized and began to function. The declining Blaze was revitalized by the heroic efforts of a small group of freshmen and sophomores. Dr. Broda began to get his League for the 29 ELSIE LILLIAN HEMPSTEAD HOIISIOII, Illimzesota HOUSEHOLD ECONOMICS Colleges: Iowa State College, Antioch College.

The League of Youth members resigned from the Arztioehian due to pressure from both faculty and stu- dents. It looked like the end. And then, in the spring of 1925, a little coverless, eight- page "guerrilla magazine" naively crept forth to meet a wall of indifference and scorn. Volume I, Number 1 of the Blaze had appeared. The beginning of the Blaze marked the gradu- ation of the liberal group from faculty sponsorship. For the first time since the new Antioch began the liberal gang was standing on its own feet. Had the old League of Youth crowd stood solidly behind the infant Blaze all might have been well, but the left wing split, and split again, leaving a mere shadow of the lively gang that once met at Chatterjeesl. When the second issue of the Blaze appeared popular ridicule knew no bounds. The staff of the Arzzioehiafz was especially vehement in its denunciation of the liberals' attempt at journalism. And it was this very antagonism which put life into the Blaze. The editorial and correspondence columns of the z47Zil0Chl.Il7Z reeked with attacks on the Blaze and defenses of it. Too late the Afzlioehiafz saw its error. A new liberal group had already begun to rally around the Blaze. Witli the opening of school in the fall of 1925 a full- fledged liberal club leaped into existence, to publish the Blaze and to promote all manner of liberal activities on the campus. Discussion groups were promoted, interracial meetings with VVilberforce were regularly conducted with considerable suc- cess, Antioch's student government was overthrown and the 27 elf.

Except for the in- ception of the organized halls two years later it is doubtful if any other student activity at Antioch has had such far-reaching consequences. In those days the student body as a whole was much more conventional and intolerant than it is today. There was a general desire that Antioch should grow into a conventional peppy American college with lots of the Hgood old college spiritl' and all the palaver that goes with it. The League of Youth stemmed that tide, and was cordially hated for it. The Anziochian staff were mostly League of Youth people, and I have a clear mental picture of a crowd of angry stu- dents gathered about the big elm in front of North Hall on which was posted a clipping from the Avzziochiafz, along with a sign which read, "Are we going to stand for this sort of thing at Antioch?" The clipping signed HH. C." ridiculed football. That night Horace Champney was dragged from his room, paddled severely, and ducked in the horse trough on the road to Grinnellls. A few evenings later the football team met at Chatterjee's at the invitation of the League of Youth, for a free for all dis- cussion. The room was packed. Feelings were at white heat. And the League of Youth kept the upper hand. I overheard a frightened conversation later in the evening between two foot- ball men who seemed to think that they were going to be fired from college for playing football at all. After a time the League of Youth drifted away from Chatterjeesh Meetings became irregular. A temporary revival EUGENE CAMPBELL COSKERY, JR.

Liberal ideas were her stock in trade. It was inevitable under such circumstances that there should be spirit- ual and intellectual stirrings among the students. Bit by bit things were straightening out and becoming organized. A few students took hold of the Antiochian, hither- to a quarterly, and organized it on a self-supporting weekly basis. Another group started the Towers. Numerous clubs were organized, not by people who lived together, but by people with common interests. The student body was im- proved by drastic weeding. And with the growth of wider interests and activities there gradually became perceptible a certain vague drift of liberalism on the part of a handful of especially serious indi- viduals. The first manifestation of the movement was the meeting of groups at the homes of faculty members. These meetings happened mainly at the Morgans' during the Hrst two years. By the beginning of the third year of the New Antioch the liberals had developed a group consciousness which was crys- talized under the guidance of Mr. Chatterjee who held open house each Thursday evening for such students as cared to gather at his home to discuss things in general. This group came to include such poets, editors, idealists, "truth seekers," and reformers as Antioch had been able to attract. This was the famous "League of Youthl' whose short tumultuous career has echoed through the six years which 3 it J. AFTERWARD- FTER you have left Antioch, never again to be a stu- -? dent there-only then do you realize what it has meant to you. Only then do you understand how ' e 'W' you have loved it all. Each of you discover this some day. While you are still a student, while you still return each year, you are unable to imagine what this new loneliness is like. Loneliness? Yes, and longing. Little things make you lonely 5 little things make you long for Antioch. A strange face in a strange city--in a Hash you are reminded of someone you knew at Antioch. You are back there, wandering about the campus, sitting before a round table in the library, climbing the steps of the Main Building. Faces are there-faces that you know-friendly faces.

All things loud and gaudy Are tinsel phantoms, gone where time goes. The rutted way is rich with dust. The hr trees link black arms, Walling in a great peace. Stars burn cool and clear among them. The vault of silence, from earth to heaven, Brims with the breathing of the fields. 41 THE MEN'S DORMITORY 42 are doubtless many ivies that have been trans- planted into America from Great Britain with a history attached to them, but it is possible that ' none of them have a history quite as remarkable as the ivy which mantles the walls of Antioch. The donor of the ivy was Miss Alton Halstein Iohnson, a sister-in-law to Mr. Frank Grinnell of Spring Lea. One sum- mer while visiting the estate of Washington Irving Miss Iohn- son so fervently admired the ivy luxuriously ernbowering Sunnyside that upon leaving, Mr. Irving said, "Let me give you some ivy to take back to your home in Ohio." Initially, the ivy had been planted on Irving's delightful home by a Mrs. Renwick, of New York City. It was she whom Burns immortalized in his poem, "The Blue Eyed Lassief' On one of her visits to Scotland she went to Melrose Abbey. Sir Walter Scott gave her a piece of ivy to plant at Irving's home and she did so with her own hands. It soon attained a growth as luxuriant at Sunnyside as it had at Melrose. . Miss Iohnson, herself a remarkable, cultured woman with a long line of literary ancestors, finally gave the ivy to Antioch through Doctor Thomas Hill who was then president of the institution. Some years ago the Antioch ivy was confounded with bignonia, and thinking it might injure the roof was torn in part from the walls, but, "Whole ages have Hed, and their works decayed, And nations scattered beeng But the stout old ivy shall never fade From its hale and hearty green. The brave old plant in its lonely days Shall fatten upon the past, For the stateliest building men can raise Is the ivy's food at last. Creeping where no life is seen A rare old plant is the ivy green."

UNITY IN EDUCATION HE Antioch Plan requires that we consider what sorts of knowledge are really essential to the man who today is to be called educated, and that we - organize these into a curriculum possessing unity. To this end we have a number of courses, DOI merely required, but required in a certain sequence. Moreover the various in- structors coiidinate and correlate what is taught. Yet a se- quence of courses, however coordinated and correlated, do not make a unity 5 they remain simply so many courses. Not even the fact that these courses converge on the individual student makes them a unity. Unity comes when the student makes them a unity. It does not come unless the converging and cor- related courses make a difference to the individual. Of course, to make a difference to the individual or in the individual is the end of education. And the important unity is the unity of one's conduct or attitude towards life. A biologist who would drink unnecessarily of polluted water has scarcely achieved it. The physician who expectorates in the street car has not attained it. And the educated man of today who ac- cepts the teachings of modern science, but insists also on a literal acceptance of the first chapters of Genesis has not achieved it. 45 ll-W Henry George Gieser, M oose law, Saslqatchezuafz, Canada Phillip Arthur Hazelton, Freeport, Maine Iohn William Henley, Indianapolis, Indiana Iarnes Gale Idle, Pemberton, Ohio Herschel Iones, Hastings, Nebraska Anne Elizabeth Keeler, Marietta, Georgia Howard Charles Kelly, Dayton, Ohio William Henry Linn, Ir., Grand Rapids, Minnesota Cornelia Lunt, Denver, Colorado Ruth Louise Mangan, Greenville, Ohio .46 I use the term achieve advisedly. For a unified and consis- tent life is an achievement, and one of no mean order. It does not simply happen, it will not come about merely by being ex- posed to unified and consistent teaching. It comes from an earnest effort on the part of the learner himself, first, to put together what he knows and then to act accordingly. Permit me to make a slightly different approach. Consis- tent conduct is impossible without a unified knowledge. If we are to act consistently we must, in Matthew Arnold's words, endeavor to see life clearly and see it whole. As Thomson says, it takes a long-necked observer to see the entire f-irmament from one window. So we have divisions of labor among scientists, and we have divisions in the labor of students. These constitute the courses. But the divisions be- tween courses are not insurmountable stone walls. It is a whole we study and that whole is the order of Nature, an organism with parts or members, constituting one body. All of the sci- ences, as well as religion, philosophy, and, indeed, art, are but so many different ways of viewing or approaching nature. 47 Roy Fickes Mock, Toledo, Ohio Eugene Whitson Nelson, Logansporzf, Indiana Harold Moberly Poland, Ocean Beach, California Xarifa Louise Sallume, Battle Creek, Michigan Reuben Seime, Viroqua, Wisconsin Roland Herbert Shackford, Portland, Maine Ollie Roy Stone, Wyoming, Ohio Robert Lauren Tracy, laclqsonzfille, Florida Raymond Iohn Wiclcst1'om, Duluth, Minnexoza 48 ill PREFATORY OBSERVATIONS CONCERNINGAPHILOSOPHY OF LIFE gl o sHtP can be steered with its wheel lashed fast 5 A the ship without chart and compass can do 7 but drift. So it is with a philosophy of life. If one fe me is to reach a destination, one must have a destina- tion, and not be blown about by every wind of doctrine. On the other hand, the steersman that keeps his course must shift the wheel alertly with every change of wind or fresh ocean current the ship encounters. Wisdom is delicately balanced be- tween loyalty to principle and openness of mind. How easy for constancy to harden into a sort of rigor morris of stupid custom, without variety, adventure, or zest, and how facile the descent from alert intelligence, to mere opportunism and expedieucy, without range, prospect, plan or hope. But where, amid the confusions of this epoch, can a chart be found? One need not despair of an answer. Hold fast the conviction that a man has power, within limits, to choose his course, and there remains only the question of direction. Now two points sullice to determine a line, and any line may be projected into infinity. Every person recognizes some loy- alty beyond his own pleasure, some devotion to a person, group, nation, or cause. This loyalty is to him utterly valid and authoritative. Let him project it into infinity, by working it to the utmost. If it is only the loyalty of the worker to his job, he may give it an infinite projection and make it the beginning of a life-philosophy, by seeking to know the total meaning of the job, its place in the economy of life, all its scientific, technical, and human bearings.

Your true conservative asks whether others have done and are doing what is proposedg he does not inquire Whether the results have been good. A liberal may be defined as one who lianlcers after radical ideas Without having the courage to believe in them. A radical is one who believes in the ideas but does noth- ing about it. A man who really proposes to accomplish something new is a visionary or a dernagogue.

The opinion given by the Chief Iustice sufficiently states the facts necessary for the full understanding of the case: Ion GRAD was found guilty as charged in the indictment and sentenced to life at hard labor. His defense was the world owed him a living. The young man was reared in the nurture and admonition of a Christian home and had many advantages in his early youth. In 1921 he left home to go to a small town in Ohio to enter college in pursuit of a higher education. He never caught up. This Court will take judicial notice that the college is non- sectarian, is not a trade school Qfor if it were, the respondent would not be before us on this chargej and that the plan, there founded, of working five weeks and loafing the next 55 Iames Stainforth Earley, St. Paul, Minnesota Charles William Eastman, Brighton, Massachusetts Iohn Polhemus Elliott, Oswego, Illinois Ioseph William Ellis, Ir., Bufalo, New Yorlg Don Fallgatter, Wcmprmz, Wisconsin Sophia Fischer, Easton, Pennsylvania Earl Hubert Fisher, Rock Rapids, I own Henry Benedict Fisher, Ir., Strcator, Illinois Iames Beye Fyfe, Oalq Parlq, Illinois Leonard George Ghering, Tryonzfille, Perzfzsylzfanlzz 56 if-f-J five weeks, was said by an eminent authority to be the great- est advance in education in America in the past umpty years.

I-Ie stands before us today buffeted by reality. He was led by ambition to the pinnacles of opportunity, and battered five years of his life for what lay before him in the valley. He took up First INTER-collegiate athletics, and when his preceptors forbade that pleasure, his fertile mind conceived INTRA- collegiate sports, until the posthumous heir threatens more evil than the deceased parent dreamed of. He chose cards, playing poker with cronies behind drawn shades and locked doors. Again the guiding hand . . . again the wily culprit with now habitual finesse, risked a lower card when the strict rules of play called for a higher, and Bridge became the game, played in the parlors of his educators!

What a background! And we reach the respond- ent's defense. He pled NoT GUILTY. At the trial, he offered in evidence a sheepskin, sealed, signed, and delivered by the col- lege president as a DEGREE of Bachelor of Arts. We accept the evidence for what it is worth. He argued, and skillfully, that THAT fitted him for his place in society, THAT was the Key to the City, THAT was indicia of his ability, THAT was sufficient justihcation of his attitude, THAT .... but enough. We sustain the lower court's opinion on this point. The cases are legion proving the worthless evidentiary value of such documents other than as murals. In affirming the trial courtls holding, this Court hopes that his five year's sojourn in this college will not hinder the respondent's success in carrying out the sentence imposed: "A lifetime of hard labor among his peers." 59 Ruth Rebecca Leibig, Bcchzelsoille, Pennsylvania Iohn Lawrence Lord, Alberta, Canada Vllalworth MacDowell, Uniontozan, Pcnnfylvania Sara Mecracken, Oalq Parlq, Illinois Thalia Mecracken, Oak Park, Illinois Max George Mercer, Wes: Hartford, Conneczicaz William Cristian Meyer, Antioch, California Dorothy Mott, Oswego, New York Richard Winslow Nutter, Ir., Brockton, Massachusezzs Joyce Harriet Otter, Moscow, Idaho 60 I,-..

Thefuture dean, being unable at a cursory glance to determine the exact genus of this strange new bacillus spread across his path, and being in too great a hurry to take out his pocket glass for a closer study, disappeared quickly behind the dune of an ad- joining steam line ditch. I had not long been a charter resident under the new Morganic dispensation when I learned that the most perplex- ing problem of reorganization was that of Ending a suitable way in which to distinguish the three student groups now com- monly known as the A's, the B's, and the C's. It was at first thought to name each division after a Hower, i.e., magnolias, morning-glories, black-eyed susiesg but inas- much as students were from every known state in the Union, including the Scandinavian, and because there were not nearly enough divisions on hand to provide hothouse accommoda- tions for the numerous state flowers thus Huttering nervously for representation, this plan was ultimately thrown into the discard-which, in that remote day, meant any one of several gaping wounds intersecting and pocking the local landscape. At the height of these hectic deliberations, in a violent effort to arrive at some multi-laterally satisfactory solution of this problem many students repaired to secluded nooks in the glen, took up their positions behind tables in the tea room and adjourned to other places in town where they were served potions designed to precipitate deep reflection, prayer, and meditation conducive to fluidity of ideas. 63 Florence Anna Stacey, North Ridgeville, Ohio Edward Stanwood Ill, Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts Rachel Anne Stuller, Bryan, Ohio Alma Everett Swahliu, MH172GlA0iZ6C!Q, New Yorll Oscar Eric Swanson, Ir., Rochester, New Yorlq Georgia Marcella Thomas, Marshall, Illifzois Martha Louise Veal, Freeport, New Yoflg Earle Samuel VVelch, Ir., Eau Claire, Wiseofzsifz Clair Ellis Vllilcox, Montrezzl, W iseolzsin Lewis Orlo Williams, Freeport, Illifsois 64 Across the tea table, the glen dancing pavilion, in the re- fectory, down by the furnace, and in countless dorm rooms the battle raged.

Would We have Bachii, Venuses, Neptunes, Adonises, Aphrodites, etc., or perchance would the plan be so devised to distinguish us by astronomical terminology? There might, it was stoutly held, be the Pegasi, the Cassiopeans, the Saturnalians, the Moonshiners. Then there was the school which firmly stood its ground for a quasi-medical nomenclature frankly suggestive of cer- tain anatomical improvement cults, i.e., the Tonsilitics, Dia- betics, Gall Stone Quarryists, Fallen Archers, Distended Ab- domenites, Back Rubbers, Ioint Adjusters, Contract Hippites and Asthmaticians. Dismayed at the alarmingly increasing complexity of the situation Prexy Morgan quietly announced one morning to the assembled factions that until they could reach some agree- ment in the matter the three groups would be referred to in the official archives by the simple alphabetical designation in vogue ever since. 65 Mary Alice White, Farmington, Michigan Stanley Booth Wise, Springyield, Ohio Allyn Seymour Wright, Erie, Pennsylvania Charles Edward Wright, Ir., Duquesne, Pennsylvania Iohn Howard Young, Brattleboro, Vermont Robert Wilson Brown, Greenville, Pennsylvania Buel Bice Hunt, Pasadena, California 66 , ,J' rl' THE WHISTLE This is not silence.

The anniver- sary of the death of the halls has left transplanted half- brothers in a pool of reminiscences whose size belies their youth. Memories of the Ides of March and their fateful por- tent bring recollections of Wrathful hall presidents, of futile exhortations for "No transplantation without representation," and of indignant bull sessions. But memories fade with the echo of Il Duce Morgan's commandment, f'Ye shall not be fraternalfl There occur moments in the packing of grips for the periodic treks of an Antiochian when some run across shiny pins in the bottoms of drawers that were accustomed to label the bearers as proud members of Insert-name-of Hall, and the stream of resulting associations is broken by sighs of "Alas, poor Yorickf' A heretical memory calls back the old objec- tions and they still seem valid, what benefits have resulted from our organized disorganizationP The campus still re- sounds to the derisive cry of "Hi, fellowswg few unwilling Rotarians, and the Writer is acquainted with none who were willing, have increased their vocabularies of first names appre- ciably.

Rumors of gambling and drink- ing, and some said those evils hastened the hall-dooms, persist in practically the same quantities. Wonder yet lives in Whole- sale lots that a man-or-boy should not be allowed to live with the group that is most agreeable to him. The story of the men who covertly attend meetings of their old loves although ensconced in new barracks combines with the story that practically an entire hall has forsaken the dormitory for the village to convince the writer that there will be no peace on our merry-go-round till those present har- dened recalcitrants have joined the legendary ranks of Alum- ni who cavort in Elysian fields, and from boundless depths of selfishness he wonders why he must be one of the guinea- pigs upon whom the noble experiments are performed. With a touch of pathos he remembers the time when he was un- touched by youthful cynicism, when he was free from the dread of "carefree college life," when he, even, he shrinks to admit, relished the idea of being a fraternity man, and he laughs a laugh that is tinged with immature bitterness. The writer's remembrance of the weary disgust of the sophomore who tries to study in a hall of twelve freshmen is interrupted by the so-called tap-dancing of the future Fred Stone who spasmodically lives above him, and he grows firmer in his belief that a happy family of some four hundred sym- metrical mortals is Utopian, but entirely impossible. From early childhood he has favored small families, and he supposes that death will find him still so prejudiced despite future ro- tating years. 73 Howland Dudley, Ir., Belmont, Massachusetts Sidney Charles Eaker, Marshall, Minnesota Margaret Ianet Edge, West Chester, Pennsylvania Milburn LeRoy Forth, Niles Center, Illinois Kathryne Rose Franklin, Norwalk, Ohio Ellen French, Concord, Massachusetts Iohn Frye, New Yorlq, New Yorlq Iohn Mark Gracie Ill, Little Roclq, Arkansas Willianu Frederick Gutwein, Dayton, Ohio Iarvis Bardwell Hadley, N orthanzpton, Massachusetts 74 L A D Y A L I C E An appreciation of cz most delightful gentlewomafz HERE is a little room in the Clinic that is, in a Way, quite out of place. It should never be in a house of healing, but, rather, in some little vine-covered cot- -A'i'ee--4! tage with flowering window-boxes and a thatched roof. It is a room that will live long in the memories of many Antiochians as a delightful haven of refuge from the cares of campus life. It is Antioch's closest approach to a salon-to one of those gathering places of delightful people, presided over by a charming Woman. And who will deny that the one who holds sway over the gatherings in that little room is not charming? Miss Alice Bingle came here several years ago and quickly won herself a place in the hearts of everyone. She instituted, early in her career, the practice of afternoon tea, proving that-although she was away from her native Britain-she was still loyal to its tradition. It was not long before she was gathering in by degrees the whole campus to join her in the four o'clock ritual. About her table, students forgot campus feuds and petty dis- sention. With consumate tact, she made everyone feel at home. More than one cloud of homesickness has vanished with the magic of a second cup of tea. Weakening spirits have found fresh stimulus in the tiny corner room. And who can count the budding romances that have bloomed in the spring when the rattle and clink of cup and spoon sounded in the Clinic garden P 75 -.+L Helen Margaret Hanson, Teaneclq, New Iersey Helen Delaire Hartman, Columbus, Ohio Violet Rornaine Hausrath, Cleveland, Ohio Lawrence Wayne Hodges, Superior, Nebraska Margaret Elizabeth Hunt, Detroit, Michigan Ruth Irene Hunt, Detroit, Michigan Melvin Iasper Hunter, Mount Healthy, Ohio Ruth Clark Hutchinson, Seuficlgley, Pennsylvania Walter Dayton Iackson, Tryonville, Pennsylvania Iames Irving Iohnson, Worcester, Massachusetts 76 An ability to win and hold the affection of many of us has given Lady Alice a place that cannot be filled. When We go madly about, having our silly fun, she smiles gently and un- derstandingly. With the patience of Iob, she bears good- naturedly no end of bantering and ragging on the part of students. The many photographs that adorn the wall of her sitting-room testify to her popularity. One needs only to be a patient in the Clinic to realize her professional ability and the sunshine of her disposition. Too, one learns of the hand of iron beneath the velvet glove- no light ever burns after hours in that building. To many a lonesome invalid, she has meant an inexpressible lot. In emer- gencies-and a college community provides many of them in the course of a year-she is always ready to step in and take charge, quietly and efficiently. But, We cannot write of Lady Alice without mentioning her one great pet and companion, Gussie. Never has there been a more famous Ford on this campus-nor, some say, a more rambunctious one. But what care We for a few garage doors and nasty stone pillars? QThey shouldn't have gotten in the way.j So long as we can hear the toot of Gussie's horn and see Lady Alice go whizzing by, with a cheery Wave of her hand, everything's dandy. As one combs one's memories of Miss Bingle, one finds many joyful fragments-steak-roasts at the f'Magic Carpet," happy afternoons in Iune when there is tea on the Clinic porch, gloomy Winter days abed made bright by her cheery presence, and the Howers in Gussie's vase. 77 Iohn Webster Iones, Falda, Minnesota Katherine Ann Kampp, Chicago, Illinois Dorothy Athene Kirkwood, Washington, D.

AM ., 1 lla, v lv 1, 'QQ its '. liillk rs TRADITION AND LEAP WEEK r--HH-Q, 1-IBN Antioch adopted Leap Week, which gave yy .W Antioch women the right to date men, a K fl tradition was disregarded, namely, the tradition of ii AMAA giving all dating rights to the men. During the first semester of this year one week was set aside in each division for the purpose of allowing women to use this newly adopted plan and permit them to become ini- tiated in the mysteries of dating men. Sprucd Cottage was the scene of supper parties. Dinner and coffee dates took place at the Maples and the tea room. Baker House common room and faculty homes enjoyed informal parties arranged by the women. There followed dances on Saturdays which were paid for by the ladies and the men were enabled to find out how they rated in popularity. It was a revelation and incidently an interesting experiment for those involved. With the passing of Leap Week at Antioch, there remains an awakened interest in social problems, uncovered by this reversing of the tables between the usual relations existing be- tween the men and women. The progress evolving from this newly established tradition will be interesting to watch. 79 ill Richard Thurston Mansfield, South Haven, Michigan Arthur Gridley Marsh, Bristol, Connecticut Rufus Edward Miles, Ir., Columbus, Ohio Charles Philip Moos, South Hadley Falls, Massachusetts Paul Lewis Munson, Washtu, Iowa Paul Lewis Nagel, Detroit, Michigan Elizabeth Webb Newcomb, Albany, New Yorlq Edward Lawrence O'Brien, Concord, New Hzznzp.fhire Bert O'Neall, Waynesville, Ohio Francis Marion Osborne, Mount Croghrzn, South Curolma 80 TRADITION LL. hail to.Trtztlitioul.Tradition, that step-mother tif 27 jake!! the herd instinct, which fosters surface things, glori- fying them and enhancing their value until man le h e-1 is blinded by their brilliance and accepts them as things of true value, and, if he be unthinking, goes his way satisfied. 81 Henry Iohn Peterson, Ir., Pipestone, Minnesota Charles Harold Pierce, Springfeld, Massachusetts Robertson Mears Pitcher, Pasadena, California Henry Barnes Platt, Norwalk, Connecticut William Chadwell Poland, Ir., Ocean Beach, California Herbert Hobbie Roosa, Bujalo, New Yorlq Mary Isabel Sanders, Monroe, Louisiana Lilian Eleanor Schueler, Baliimore, Maryland Mila Romayne Schwartzbach, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Richard Persons Townley Scott, Leonia, New jersey 82 EXCERPTS FROM A LETTER AM writing tonight in the back office of the Book- " 1" . . . - P .X 1 Wifi plate Shop. Ernie IS out in the shop running o i some copies of a zinc etching. Only we two and the J cat are here, and the shop is silent except for the thud of Ernie's press and the music of the radio. I call it silence for the sound of the presses and the radio is always here, like the smell of printer's ink. . . The shop is really a shed tacked on the back of an old Yellow Springs house. It is a long, low place, full of all the fascinating things printers use and per- meated With a sort of busy disorder. Erniels shop is full of activity, but it has none of the ugly tension common to Ameri- can industry. The people who wander in may be anyone or no one in the college world, but once they have strolled through the door of the shop they relax their steps and their little pro- tective mannerisms, and stand out clearly as persons, with odd but fascinating patterns of likes and dislikes-and most of them with a particular scheme for saving the world. This shop is a place one must learn to know as gradually as though one were making a friend. It has some of the busy serenity of a mother who realizes that few lives are richer than hers. You and I know that houses are homes if you live in them enough, and that homes are never forgotten. Certainly the Bookplate Shop will never be forgotteng we have done entirely too much living there. The Bookplate Shop is the back door to the college and we are the people who prefer it to the spacious entrance. Some of us could not make the adjustment to the duller, saner life of the rest of the school 5 33 TE Catherine Loveclay Shaw, Brooklyn, New Yorlq Iames France Shaw, Dayton, Ohio Richard William Simons, West Plains, Missouri Ruth Gertrude Steidinger, Fairbary, Illinois Lewis Carr Stone, Sprizzgfeld, Massachusetts Carl Gustaf Alexis Swanson, Rochester, New Yor Harry O.

We take the shapeless mass of information that we have picked up to the shop and there we hammer it into an education that is decidedly rough in spots, but it is full of meaning to us because we made it. Oh, wonderful things happen herel Great dreams are dreamed recklessly, glittering brainstorms are organized into clear thought. Lovely theories are cut to pieces by sharp tongues. Tales of co-op jobs, of Germany, of China, are gleefully recounted. The faults of the world in general and of our col- lege world in particular are discussed with the intensity pecu- liar to people who still believe something can be done about it. The Blaze grew out of this, and so did various campaigns for the betterment of Antioch, such as the one for community government. You must be finding it a little hard to believe by this time. I wish I could make you see it as clearly as I saw it yes- terday afternoon, with the backdoor open to the spring air and the sun coming Warm through the windows. Four of us were working there on the Blaze, very gay because of the spring and the radio's delightful music. Once I laid down the proof I was reading to walk to the back door and watch the village horseshoe game. When I turned back to the shop and to the three people with whom I shared the strong bonds of honest friendship and common dreams, I realized for one brilliant moment all-that the low room held: its careless lack of convention, its clear thought, its good music and rich laughter, its generous enthusiasm and vibrant life. 85 ' 1 Iohn Walmsley, Claymont, Deldware Helen Celinda White, Bath, Nea!

G ' it ' full at ten white a es which la about her Each I, .fy Y P 8 Y page was a month long and four weeks wide- M- and disconcertingly blank. With a mighty sigh the scribe picked up her pen and set to work. For she was none other than the editor of the Calen- dar Section of the 1930 Towers, and the pages were the months of that year at Antioch. With a hesitancy born of inexperience, she chose a spot for September 9 and recorded there, icMIXER.77 In the weeks that followed, her pen was often in her hand. She marked down many symbols for dances--Saturday night dances with confetti, crazy hats, Eskimo pies, spot-lightsg the Hanchett Hall Formal, the Baker House Reunion 5 signs for steak-roasts and for sleigh-rides, signs for Leap Weeks and the new Little Theater and for Open House. The sheets became torn at the edges and blotted and smudged with ink. Then one day the scribe looked at her work and a strange thought came into her mind. Some people might have called it genius, others would say it was simply laziness. At any rate this reckless scribe snatched up gleaming scissors and started cutting busily. When she had finished she crumpled up the scraps of months that were left and threw them far away. The pieces that were left she put into neat little piles and bound them together with broad ribbons that she called "the spirit of the thing"-or in an unguarded moment, Hessencef' QI SOPHOMORES Frederick Thomas Adams, Clarlq af Marion Piper Adams, Yello Harry Milford Barnes, Utiea, Nez l Hester Adeline Bassett, Ye Frank Ambrose Beach, Ir., Margaret Scott Bear, Miamisharg z Clara MaBelle Berry, Wash Marie Iean Best, Columbus, Theresa Rose Black, Toledo, Elinor Blount, Maplewood, Lalqe, Michigan Springs, Ohio u Yorlq ow rings, Ohio I Sp Em poria, Kansas ', Ohio n gton, D.

And when the end of the year came and the Chief Scribe came to her for her record, she showed him the gayly bound packets and smiled pleadingly into his eyes, for she wanted him to be pleased. But the Chief Scribe only took them gravely and said to her, "It is not for me, my child. It is for these others that you are keeping watch." And he pointed far off in the distance to a land where crowds of people moved about under three huge banners-The Past, The Present, and The Future. Then he Went away, taking the little packets with him, and the girl stood on the hillside where he had left her, strain- ing forward to see into the distance and learn if her gift would be acceptable. 93 Catherine Edith Bonneau, Plandome, New York Harry Wells Bonneau, Plafzdome, New Yorlg Philip Burdett Booth, Orange, New lersey Herbert Willianis Brackney, Ir., Sioux City, Iowa Kathleen Brookhart, Cleveland, Ohio Margaret Elizabeth Brough, Dayton, Ohio Austin Fisk Brown, Plaifzfelal, Vermont Benjamin Stanton Brown, Ir., Kansas City, Mixsowz Howard Elis Brown, Ilderton, Ontario, Canada Iohn Kredel Burroughs, Sazfamzah, Georgia 94 ON LEAPING r'v"J AY I cut, please?"

Of such stuff, Leap Dances. 1' , , T-'fail A soft voice, with more than a hint of laughter l l Freedom! Equality! Something new! Under one or an- other cry, Leap Week came into being. Under even more cries its fame spread so that all the world soon knew that Antioch girls called for their boy friends in taxis. Three times that week was given to the fair ones to make their wishes known-and to pay the bills. Ioe found himself in the unusual position of wondering if he would have a date on Saturday night! And Iosephine smiled and let him squirm. Nay, more, she asked the charming professor of Marfrenstry to have dinner with her, and provided a rumble seat to escort him to the feast. Later, when Leap Week proper met reverses, another in- novation was tried in the form of a "Hard Times" dance with the stag-line thrown open equally to men and women. The in- formality of hobo attire gave courage to the faint-hearted and one of the most successful dances of the year resulted with a very respectable showing of "cuts" by both the fair and the brave. 95 Shirley Elizabeth Carson, Glens Falls, Neal Yorlq Elizabeth Pope Chandler, Rockland, Massaehasetts Donald Audason Charles, Washington, D.

AN F O R M A L i-na course of the formal dance at Antioch serves as an index to more than one happening in the back- ground. Time was when "The Div," once every - e - five weeks, afforded the only chance for the fem- inine glitter and the masculine discomfort of formal dress. Even then the barbaric setting of classroom-cloakrooms and gymnasium dance-floors allowed sport coats to hold sway over soft evening wraps and discouraged those feminine 'cces- soriesn that mark the conventional formal affair. This year, however, has seen a change at which the Old Guard levels a suspicious eye. "Formal" is rapidly becoming more and more formal. Few gallants now defy the Order of the Tuxedo. Even Moxie and Nan have been left behind, and Div Dance night sees a pilgrimage to The Lantern, Shawnee, and Pirate's Den in place of the old stampede for the white- topped tables and "The Counter." To the Old Guard it looks like a trend toward the collegi- ate-and that is death! To the Dorm Committee it looks like a desire on the part of the younger generation to sit up late- and that is annoying! 99 , Adrian Clarence Edmonds, Keene Valley, New York Martha Evans, West Plains, Missouri Ruth Norma Fallgatter, Waupaca, Wisconsin Iane Farley, Berkeley, California Mary Elizabeth Fite, Washington Court House, Ohio Davis Ernest Frank, Cleveland, Ohio William Beye F yfe, Oak Park, Illinois Iohn Milton Gaede, Van Wert, Ohio William Laurence Gates, Honeoye Falls, New York Raymond Goldsmith Goldberg, Cleveland, Ohio 100 Another sign of the times is the tendency to patronize the new Biltmore in Dayton-even to the point of forsaking "The Div" in its favor. Behind this 'move we see a discontent with the dances this year which is based on the inability of one small group to bear the burden of the entire social program. With the breakup of the organized halls it became necessary for the Social Committee to execute every dance. The con- centrated mental and manual labor that produced such dances as the "Monte Carlo," "Toyland," and "The Balloon Dancen was no longer available and decorations were cut to a mini- mum. Thus "The Div" lost some of its glamour-and patron- age. In spite of the difiiculties encountered, however, the Social Committees performed a good job. We remember with special pleasure the take-off for the year at "Glen Iunction" and "The Dance of the Year" with Father Time Walmsley whisking us through a year in an evening. The Sophomores came to the rescue finally with the "Faculty Frolic" and as we go to press rumors already 'reach us of plans for a gorgeous "Prom." Long live "The Div!"

The attic door creaks open and shut while strangely costumed figures come totter- ing through the halls laden with absolutely anything from bridge-lamps to pin-cushions. What can't be put into trunks and boxes is offered disarmingly to 'KC Specials" who find themselves presented with extra winter coats, Easter eggs, and bitter-sweet. Corridors become tortuous passageways, offering numberless opportunities for cracked shins, and the back entryway of North Hall is piled high with "stuff for the Lodge." Everywhere is the dreariness of household gods de- posed. And outside, it rains. For those on the job, it is a day of restless haste to be on the way. Traction, train, and cars in various stages of repair wend the way back to Antioch. Through the drizzling rain the "Workers" return to play the "scholar,'l and their alter- nates go out to carry on. Sunday there are rifts in the clouds and signs of a new "settlement" in the dorms. Old friendships renewed and gen- uine enthusiasm over the tea room menu.

The advent of Community Service has made Clean-up Day an orderly affair with captains, lieutenants and water-boys to run events through in record time. Shovels, rakes, and bushel- baskets are distributed generously and assignments to sections and type of work are offered with business-like precision. A feeling which very nearly approaches civic pride thrusts even laziest of Antiochians into the ranks and for those who fail to answer roll a search is instituted. No matter if the Messrs. Magruder and Hanchett appear to be arrayed for golfg today they swing the pick-axe. Sammy stands by disconsolately while all the bones he has hidden away pile up with the snaky line of leaves and rubbish which follows the rake brigade Cno punj across the campus. Fem- inine fingers uncover to the sun tender green blades that lie hesitating beneath the dead leaves. Flames leap from the piled- up gleanings and the smell of woodsrnoke drifts over the workers. Popular music blares out in a lively chant to keep the shovels in time. Color tinges the western sky as the quiet of late afternoon comes on. The confused shouting of the early afternoon has given way to only occasional bantering that echoes in the growing silence. Healthy outdoor tiredness hangs on the al- most civic Antiochians who check in their rakes and baskets and water-pails. Clean-up Day has left its mark once more- on all but the rear of South Hall. 107 .

This was the official ushering in of hazing week for Division B-that more or less delightful event ex- perienced and shall we say anticipated by every 'timid fresh- man who hopefully enters the portals of learning throughout the country. It was as motley an array as was ever gathered in front of those steps-beggars, ballet dancers, peasants, gypsies, and the usual nondescript outfits procured at the last minute. All this in place of the customary pajama parade which the sophomores this year had tactfully voted to abolish, While still retaining some device to "put the freshman in his placef' All this whoopee apparently had little effect on the village, for it calmly ate its supper and put its children to bed as the column of freshmen, guided, prodded, and otherwise assisted by the sophomores, wound its way down town. We have it firsthand that the boys, what with paddling and leap-frogging, fared far worse than the girlsg but ask any girl what it feels like to sing the Alma Mater for the nth time. 525: .

Be it remembered, too, that this event initiated Antioclfs first Leap Week. Several of the girls, bearing this in mind, had worked up a stunt portraying an exaggerated idea of social equality, and some of the geniuses from South Hall put forth their best in the way of entertainment. Hazing in modified forms followed the freshmen through- out part of the remaining division. To their chagrin, they lost all the freshman-sophomore events and as a consequence were theoretically under the thumbs of their elders the rest of the period. Blue berets, lusty singing of the Alma Mater etc. were very much in evidence for a time. In conclusion, with humble apologies to Pope: "Too little frolic is a dangerous thing." And again: "The freshman never is, always to be blessed."

A ' POBABLY the outstandin event of the year in An- 55 -, i' - g tioch's musical program is the establishment of a Victrola record library of fine music. It is believed l""':iil Q L1 that Antioch is the second American college to do this, and it was made possible by the gift of the class of '28. The library now contains the major works of Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Haydn, Schubert, Tschaikowsky, Wagner, ancl others are constantly being added. Not the least value of these pro- grams comes from the words of explanation given by Mr. Pil- lard, Mr. Terborgh, and Mr. Watson at the different concerts. The band has been most active, and under students, Ku- min, Mattoon, and Peacock, has played at assemblies, athletic meets, indoor and outdoor concerts, and furnished the music for the town I-Iallowe'en Festival. Striving, as it always has, for quality and not quantity, the orchestra's procedure is to provide a finished program at musical vespers each period. Mrs. Broda, as director, has acquainted them with continental music that is unknown in America, such as the opera of the French Revolution, Der Kuhreigen, and the beautiful Der Ewzngeliman. The glee clubs under Mr. Dean follow the same plan, usually giving a joint program with the orchestra. Quartets, trios, and solos, both vocal and instrumental, have appeared and played for the community, as well as a visiting violinist, Michael Wilkimirsky.

Somewhere, from llnglfgfcg afar off it seemed, a thread of melody wavered "gi tenderly. My eyes sought in vain for the player. Every man on that platform seemed turned to stone. The wisp floated to every corner of the hall. Were the lights turned low-or was it only a trick of the imagination, fostered by those fairy-like notes. A gleam of light on brasses lifted stealthily to position, a careful attendance to the conductor, then the melody was re- enforced-now by viols, now the wind instruments. With a crashing harmony the entire company joined the drama. The agitated bowing of fifty violins made that half of the stage look as if some giant and many-legged insect had been flipped there on its back by a greater giant who even now perhaps sat on a mountain-top and chuckled at the crazily waving legs. The cellists, erect and aloof, bent woodenly in perfect rhythm, like so many puppets controlled by one guiding thread. The director had become a crazy demon. His whole body raged. With a suddenly outflung arm he pointed as though to name a man the vilest blackguard on earth. As suddenly re- called, the arm swung the viols into line and resumed its beating madness. In such a furious whirl, the breathless attention required by the single melody was not so necessary and I looked about curiously. The percussion men, tense behind the barrage of their instruments, watched eagerly for the signal that plunged them into a brief frenzy.

Self-consciously, yet not a little proudly, he rested one of them on a chair while he tugged at his waistcoat and a look of mutual admiration passed between him and a violinist in the center-third row. The noise was stupendous. lt seemed it would shake down the house. It beat at my ears and swirled all about me. The thought came that I might put out my hand and feel its waves break against me. With no warning, every sound was snatched suddenly into silence. A vast pit of nothingness confronted me. Iust long enough to tear at the heart this beautiful soundlessness en- dured. Then the melody swept on. It was only a moment. A moment at my first symphony, but I treasured it because even then I knew enough of life to be sure that such moments are rare.

FELS FUND HROUGH the gift of Mr. Samuel S. Fels of phia, a fund of 1ir5o,ooo has been established at Antioch College for medical research in the Held ' H Nil' of child development. Mr. Fel's interest and curios- ity concerning the efiect upon children of varying environ- mental factors during and after the prenatal period are re- sponsible for the creation of such a fund. The research consists of study and observation of mothers and children of varying economic conditions who live in Greene and Montgomery counties. During pregnancy, the mothers are interviewed at regular intervals by physicians who are members of the Fels group, and records of all relevant in- fluences are compiled and studied. After birth the child is under the observation and study of the Fels Fund for a period of ten or fifteen years. The eHorts of the Fels staff are directed toward including in their observations every factor which may be of importance in the physical and mental growth of the child. The project is unique in that no other study, up to the present time, has considered the factors influencing intra-uterine de- velopment, in the light of their effect upon the child. The study is broad in its scope and its establishment at Antioch is of beneHt both to the foundation and to the col- lege. Members of the psychology department supervise the periodic measurements of mental achievement which are done throughout the entire ten year period-a work of distinct 119 ., ..

Diet of the mother during the prenatal period is an important factor both in the health of the mother and that of the child. The department of home economics prepares diet lists for the mothers and reduces the data obtained from diets actually followed to qualitative basic food elements. Students in the de- partment are given the opportunity to do part of this Work under careful supervision. Cooperation with the college medical department makes available X-ray photography in growth study. The Fels Fund has been established less than a year. The possibilities of this particular kind of research are only begin- ning to be realized. As the work progresses it is hoped that a real contribution may be made to existing information regard- ing prenatal hygiene and child development.

It is a proud castle of immense dimen- 1 li' . . . M ,, . re e -- sions, a miniature Place San Marco wherein the art is practiced on the noblest of thoroughbreds. And yet to many Antiochians the rigid walls of this academy, this hall of white, and child of the Italian Renaissance, would seem drab and lifeless compared with the trees, the rocks of their own -a.4' Miami gorge. In the gorge is a little-known series of bridal paths where the announcing flourish of trumpets is missing, the necessity of white leather breeches, scarlet coats, two point hats, and gilded saddles paraded before a gallery of nobility lacking. Here the saddle may be of the most colorless western sort, the habit of moth-eaten knickers and a torn sweater, the beast a rat-bitten, gaitless nag, and the gallery a rabbit, a bird or two. An unsignaled canter still offers the blood-heating sensation ol an ancestral charge with the sound of pounding hoofs, the rush of air. The thrill of being astride is still there. The same air tears at the untasseled mane, the burr-filled tail, and tousles the rider's unprotected locks. It is to be astride! . . . alive! . . . that thrills, and all the finest riding art, the finest of stables, the most blooded of horses, lives in the mind as mere imagina- tion. In the gorge it is skill and the open spaces. At the academy it is convention and rigid conformity to rules. Is not physical freedom and a proliiic imagination after all the most pro- found? . . . Certainly it is the most pleasant.

The Antioch Collection of Members of DeMolay has been discontinued. If the Honor Society continues, it is rarely heard of. The campus organizations have been narrowed down, then to the Antioch Union, the American Society of Civil Engineers, Parliament, the Women's Athletic Association, the Music Department, the Players, and the publications-Am tioclzian, Blaze, "A" Boolg, and the Towers. These are the organizations which will be included in the following pages. There are, however, a few societies and associations about the campus to which we have not devoted space but which should have mention. Among these are Community Council, Student Loan Association, League for the Organization of Progress, and the Antioch Chapter of the League of Nations.

The Players have derived new life under his systematic organization. On December I3 an evening of one act plays was present- ed. They were Finders Keepers, by George Kellyg The Pearl of Dawn, by Holland Hudsong and A Wedding, by Iohn Kirkpatrick. The Pearl of Dawn called for ten scenes and sets in all the splendor of the East. Division B saw another evening of one act plays given by the Iunior Players on Ianuary 31, 1930. These were Antiques, by Claire Kummerg The Turtle Dove, by Margaret Scott Oliverg and The Old Lady Shows Her Medals, by Sir Iames M. Barrie. The high spot of the evening was the Barrie piece, one of the finest of one act plays. The March winds brought with them the first production of the Senior Players when The Thirteenth Chair by Bayard Veiller was presented on March 7. The second Senior production was Bernard Shaw's com- edy You Never Can Tell, on April II. Once again we listened to the sparkling wit and brilliant conversation of Mr. Shaw in one of his most pleasant comedies. On May 2, 1930, Mr. Pillard, in collaboration with The Players, presented a dance recital by Doris Humphrey and Charles Weidman of New York.

The club was organized as a regular parliamentary body, having its oiiicers and committees patterned after those of Congress. Milton Bradstreet, Edward Friedrich, and Howard Fineshriber held the office of the Speaker during the year. The subjects of the meetings they conducted were presented in the form of Bills, with the cases for and against being given by scheduled speakers. These were followed by general discussion, while the total opinion of the body was expressed by a vote on the question. Such topics as Compulsory Assemblyg the politi- cal issues of Hoover and Smithg Installment Selling fits bene- fits and evilsjg and Advertising Qand its benefits and evilsj were considered. 133 Priscilla Brown, Newton Centre, Massachusetts Robert Baensch Brown, Manitowoc, Wisconsin IvanAAugustus Burkhart, Perrysburg, Ohio Henry Charles Burley, Yonkers, New York William Treat Burns, Wilmette, Illinois Louis F.

During the second year, 1929-30, the Parliament endeav- ored to be much less formal than previously, gradually elimi- nating all but the most necessary of parliamentary procedure. Its topics for consideration were mainly of direct campus in- terest.

The development of this chapter was due to the organization of the Engineer's Club in the fall of 1924. This original group saw the benefits of a national society and petitioned the American Society of Civil Engineers for priv- ilege to establish a student chapter at Antioch. The petition was granted in 1925 and since that time the club has been cooperating with the national society as a student chapter in good standing. Once each division the club, after dining together, assemble for an informal talk by a visiting engineer. These talks are ordinarily of a general nature so that students of branches other than civil engineering End them valuable. Through the courtesy of construction companies, industries, and government bureaus, the chapter is also able to promote motion pictures illustrating various engineering projects and activities. In addition to the local program, Contact is main- tained With the parent society, and the proceedings of its activities are available to the members of the student chapter. They are also greatly benefited by the privilege of attending the meetings of the Dayton Section of the American Society 137 Euthala Frances Curfman, Langford, South Dakota lean Douglas Curtis, Wilmington, Ohio William Bern Dickinson, Ir., Chatham, New lersey Thomas Randolph Disbrow, Caldwell, New jersey Iunius Elmore Dovell, Orlando, Florida Leonard Anthony Doyle, Flandreau, South Dakota Glenn Edward Dubbe Walla Walla, Washington Lucile Dusenberry, Weiser, Idaho Stuart Macliellar DuVall, Tully, New York Esther Berta Dvorkin, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 138 of Civil Engineers and the lectures given by the Dayton En- gineer's Club. The Antioch chapter has been much more active this year than formerly and its membership has increased to a sur- prising extent. In this increased interest there has been built up a very valuable habit of an informal 'fswappingn of experi- ences among the members aside from the general considera- tion and discussion of professionally important subjects.

During the spring and fall of 1929, with Charles Vandersluis as president, the Union completed a much needed drainage system on the north-west section of the campus-between the girls' dormi- tory and North College Street. In connection with the drain- age system, a shale walk was put in and a rustic lily pond constructed. Charles Eastman has been president for the year 1929-30. Under his guidance the rear of South Hall will be cleaned up, remodeled, shrubs planted, and walks put in. Mr. Magru- der has been active in the Work of the Union, and Stanley Brewster, an alumnus, is working on a general landscaping plan which will include vines for the gymnasium and science building. Mr. W. I. Norton, father of Iohn Norton-an Antioch student-presented the Union this year with a thousand tulip bulbs. These have been planted in various parts of the campus. The Union has been handicapped this year by weather difficulties and the fact that a large deficit was left from last year. More than 55900 was spent on campus improvements in 1928-29 and it was necessary to make up the deficit caused by this rather large expenditure, before the Union could go ahead with a more constructive program. 141 it V Y , Y n.xa.,.:r. .-fa Emma M Gavrtt Rocnester New Yor Barbara Emma Gxeser Moose law Sa: azfchewan Canada Arleen Gersrnver Troy Ofzzo Eugene Charles George Grove Czty Pennsylaanza Donald Fredenck Gohl Harrzsbarg Pennsylaanza Iohn Delbert Gray Hammond Indzana Sarah El1zabeth Gray Pe zn Illznozs Ruth Corrrne Gross Cleveland Hezghrs Ohm Harold Edward Grxllln Memphzs Tennessee I42 . , li ' 7 I . 7 1 k ' J . .. b , , . 7 V' 1 ' Eunice Iean Gluckman, Port Richmond, New York 9 1 ' D Q I 7 I . . . , .

Added to the new dignity of having a paid chief was the promise of an oliice in the basement of the main building. i The Antiochiarfs course during the school year, 1929-30 included the usual violent ups and downs. A wild scramble for an Alnzioclzian editor at the beginning of the first Division A brought a reluctant acceptance of the responsibility from Iohn Howard. Paul Munson followed, though forewarned by five weeks of editorship the preceding spring. During this second division, Iohn Frye, dynamic managing editor, made up a six column sheet which put a decided crimp in student wails over the low estate of their paper. Opal Davis, succeeding to the editorship in the second Division A, maintained the six- column size with Frye again as managing editor. Munson re- turned to the editorship following Christmas vacation, to be succeeded, after resigning in company with the key-men of his staff, by Opal Davis. After five weeks of editorial difficulties and successes, Opal Davis gave over the journalistic reins to William B. Lloyd, editor at the time this book goes to press.

A marked pen- chant for independent thinking is the only characteristic corn- mon to all members of the Blaze organization. But the Blaze exists, not in the atmosphere of Oxford, but in that of Antioch. It is therefore to be expected that the independent thinking of most Blaze members should be fused with a certain degree of moral purpose. Hence the dual function of their organization: to give solidarity to their cornpanionshipg and to create organs through which their ideas may receive a wider publicity. In its present form the Blaze organization consists of a directing and policy-forming council, and of five administra- tive departments, magazine, forum, bulletin-board, extramural contact, and business. It is of the magazine, however, that the Blaze group is especially proud. All colleges have their news- papers and joke-papers, and a few maintain literary or liberal journals of vacillating publication and still more vacillating standards. But as far as we know the Blaze is the only college periodical, appearing regularly, which publishes nothing but critical essays and creative Writing, imaginative as well as ideational. 147 D if , f .. tg Q Q Alexander Horvath, Farmingdale, New York Elton Curtis Huff, Leesburg, Ohio Iohn Parker Hunt, Detroit, Michigan Payson Loy Hunter, Erie, Peiinsylaarzia Iames Patterson lams, Kansas City, Missouri lay Marion jackson, Kansas City, Missouri Irving johnson, Chicago, Illinois Iohn Paul Iohnson, Live Oak, Florida Wagner Bachlort johnson, Live Oak, Florizfa Richard Patrick Kellogg, New York, New Y ork I it THE TOWERS ' N 'ri-ns eighth edition of the Towers we have attempt- ed to depict life at Antioch in its various phases- flg, not so much as a record of specific events, but to 'I i' H create the atmosphere of the many student activi- ties by suggesting the essence of these occasions. By this means the editors have attempted to give a more satisfactory and com- prehensive scope to the portrayal of the Antioch scene. William Wahl is editor-in-chief of this yearls publication.

In the glare of the blaze, their faces brought into prominence by the light, sat three men. Over the fire, hanging on a crotched stick, was a pot of stew. The steam, mixed with the pungent smoke, made a most appetizing and enticing odor. With a long stick, one of the ltrio, apparently the cook, would stir the mess. He was short and pudgy-faced. "Funny it don't come." The man sitting opposite the cook had spoken. Over one of his eyes hung a patch. His face was continually twitching and had a gaunt appearance. "Maybe she's flate tonightf' The answer came from a rat- faced hunchback, who sat with his cup ready for some of the food. "Let's have some of tha grub, before ya wear it out with yer stirrinf' I-le shoved his cup across the fire with a shaking hand.

He gave them both their respective shares and produced a cup from the mysterious depths of his copious coat pocket. When they all were ready the repast noisily began. The silence of hunger being satisfied prevailed. Conversation was replaced by the noisy chewing and gulping of the slum-gum. "What do you think of it, Patchy?" Patchy started to answer but was forced to stop by a spasm of lung-racking coughs. The other two looked at each other and shook their heads. 'When the coughing stopped he lay back weakly on the ground, moaning occasionally. "Getting cooler, eh Patehyf' The rat-faced hunchback looked at the Hgure on the ground with pity in his eyes. The cook poked the Ere into a bed of neat coals, sat back and drew forth from the same mysterious pocket remnants of a sturnpy pipe. This he proceeded to pack and light. He sucked the smoke deep into his lungs, looking at the glowing bowl as he exhaled the smoke slowly through his nostrils. For some moments no one spoke. The fire simmered down to a small bed of shimmering coals, occasionally crack- ing and shooting a spark towards the worn shoes of the men. From the distance, far across the river, echoed a long low blast of a train's whistle, followed by three short blasts. A head light Hashed through the far-away trees along the river. 161 Burton Stodcl Bronx New Yor Alan Kedzre Thompson New London Connecticut a ' I r k Iulian Nachod Suliot, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania , ' f li Ioseph Iarnes Thompson Glozfersvzlle New Yor Elizabeth Violet Todd, Albert Lea, Minnesota Rose Marie Tofalo, West Winfield, New York Iosephine Tone, Fairlzope, Alabama Barbara Ann Turner, Kansas City, Missouri Frederick Donald Unger, Buffalo, New York Ianet Urie, Richmond, Indiana 162 5... They helped Patchy to his feet. C'There she is! Come on I-lumpy, give us a hand." He knocked out his pipe and the three men struggled up the embankment. They stood on the siding silhouetted against the evening sky. The rumbling of the oncoming train increased. All three instinctively crouched as the glare of the headlight became stronger. The engine struggled' up the grade past them, belching great clouds of steam and smoke. The heat of the -I-irebox blasted their faces. Then one by one they started to run along with the train.

It is the iv M iii Glen Parade. No strutting drum-major leads this glad parade, though Sammy does the honors for as many units as possible. And no martial music keeps this parade in step. Music here is only a phantom-a hint of the melody that will Wing its way from the South. But still-it is the Glen Parade. "Signs of Spring"-remember Olla Podrida? That is a part of the Glen Parade. All those pale creatures who sat list- lessly in the parlors of North Hall have tasted the strong Wine of Life and they Wander happily over the soddcn leaves that still hide the earth from spring. "Fine friendships around the campfire. Starlit skies and deep shadows." Laughter tags this story-but we all look up at night when it is the Glen Parade. Bright wooly sweater-suits flashing through the still barren branches. Faculty children have gathered to share in the fete The sober Professor -- seeks out dry leaves and wood while Mrs. Professor -- spreads a tempting display in wax-paper. The first soft day of the year sees this pageant-and all the other soft days that break into the hold of winter until spring is surely come. For each such day we keep gayety at hand 5 a bright scarf 5 dancing feetg and a joy in being. It is the Glen Parade! 167 OUTDOOR LIFE AT ANTIOCH with rz few exceptions 168 Q ROM the moment the first robin appears in the sprin 37,5 till the arrival of the first blizzard and influenza in fl 'l ' g the fall, Antioch life is predominantly outdoor. Not only the sporting life but even the academic and social life occurs under the open sky. This outdoor life appears in many and various forms, ranging from steak roasts to a collation on the campus fwhatever that isj at commencement. Perhaps we should begin with steak roasts which consume much of the time. These functions are gotten up either by a hall, for some unaccountable reason, or by a group of girls for the dual purpose of showing off their domesticity to their boy friends as Well as getting a date for some of their less fortu- nate friends f"She's adorable, you will like her a lot" sort of thingj. f-'eel' , Q. fir Ciifwix ,s Q--Q'-ba li It has been our rare good fortune never to have lived in a hall which felt that social life had gone into such a decline that a steak roast was necessary to lift it out of the doldrums. However we have been to several of the other variety, which perhaps is the reason we are no longer the bright carefree youth we once were. The preliminary work for these little fetes is done by the girls who are hostesses. They go down town and buy so many pounds of what is apparently dog meat, potato chips, pickles, coffee, paper plates etc., always forgetting something vital, usually bread or sugar. On the appointed evening two couples arrive shortly be- fore dark, select a site and start to gather firewood-not too hurriedly for the rest are due at any minute. Shortly afterwards 169 170 f' LN when it is pitch dark, the rest stumble in and ask why the hell anyone ever picked such a lousy place for a fire and why didn't you get more wood and other similar interrogations cal- culated to add a note of gaiety to the occasion. By this time the fire is a magnilicent smoke screen and the original expeditionary forces retire to rest their srnarting eyes, as do most of the others. No matter how starving any member of the party was at the outset he is usually sated now. There are always two or three, however, who will not let well enough alone, and soon the Lucullan feast is being prepared. A section of chicken wire is spread across the fire and the steaks are placed upon it. After minor burns are received by those attempting to cook the meat, the coffee is placed on the fire and the party is Well under way. After charred beef between bread has been downed with gulps of luke warm coffee, and the more severe burns and abrasions have been dressed, the guests wander off by twos for -sirl, leaving the debris to be collected by some suffering guest who then scuttles off to Moxie's for something to eat or to the infirmary for necessary repairs. There are hiking groups who rise at the crack of dawn and trek for miles of a Sunday morning. We shall not attempt to describe these affairs for the very excellent reason that under no circumstances would we get up early on Sunday morning to meet the Queen of Rumania, let alone hiking through the glen. Another very popular reason for staying away from one's room is what is laughingly called swimming. It occupies some I7I 172 I seventy-five per cent of the waking hours of the last period in the spring. The actual swimming is somewhat hampered the fact that the Little Miami river resembles nothing so m as vegetable soup. It is warm, it is muddy, and an assortment of weeds continually float in it. These swimming parties pass by the name of mayhem, battery and assault in ordinary society. It is the Antioch equivalent to being taken for a ride, albeit it passes for fun. To go swimming one collects all of what one believes to be one's friends, piles them into a car and zooms down to Grin- nell's. After one or at most two persons paying the necessary dimes for the party fit is an unwritten law that the majority completely forget their moneyj, the car is driven down to the dam. Then comes the Hrst fun. This consists of gathering up the blankets, pillows, books, bathrobes, towels, cigarettes, and victrola which accompany every such outing and crossing the slimy narrow dam to the green pastures beyond where most of the action takes place. After everything has been arranged, one goes in the water. This consists of making a lot of noise, then diving deeply and getting covered with mud. After swimming a few hundred feet one immediately loses all in- hibitions and starts to act as he feels toward everyone. Every party contains a fellow who has never been there before, and whose idea of good clean fun is to push someone over the dam, a process which quickly and not too neatly removes the skin from all knees and elbows, the seat from the bathing suit, and in some cases the rocks below the dam give one nice bruises g also a girl who thinks it is too screaming to pour 173 fl? 174 her bathing cap filled with Water upon someone who is asleep. Other denizens of the place are people who push one off of rafts, people who smoke all of your cigarettes, people who throw handfuls of mud, people who go away leaving you to turn off the victrola, and people who are bent on murder. The advantages of the place are a cheap way to acquire a coat of tan for the envy of one's friends 5 a semblance of cool- ness from the sweltering days of early summer 5 a very inex- pensive Way to entertain a date, and a very fine place to sleep undisturbed by the boop-boop-a-doop of the dormitory life. The sporting life is commented on in other sections. The academic al fresco life consists of women hauling blankets under available trees. They then bring all of the books in their library out so that passing professors may be impressed. The glare of the sun is usually so bright that they cannot read and they consequently go to sleep, giving the campus a remarkable resemblance to Lincoln Park. In a family publication such as this We cannot go into other forms of outdoor life which occupy a large share of the time. 175 ATHLETICS 1 mil xx, X 1 Z vrsrron on an afternoon, say in the last Division B, might well imagine that Antioch is a physical edu- cation institution. Driving east down North Col- ' 15' lege Street, he would pass four tennis courts in use, with many persons waiting to play. Farther on, his atten- tion would be drawn from the buildings to the varsity baseball squad practicing, and a few dashing figures on the cinder track. Two cars would pass him, one filled with men and co-eds in bathing suits hastening towards Gri1mell's, and the other with golf equipped students. Passing the science building he would catch a glimpse of an intramural baseball game in progress. Soon the sight of co-eds in brilliant costumes playing hockey would greet him. If by chance he should wander into the gymnasium, his illu- sion would be completed. There would be gym classes, hand- ball, boxing, wrestling, fencing, apparatus Work, and volley ball for him to watch. No need for the Dean to tell him that at Antioch the physical side of life is not neglected. 177 THE NEW GYM 178 47 I VARSITY SPORTS AT ANTIOCH !HoULD varsity be abolished? .lt wasla burnin tion last year and still lurks in Antioch minds. Last yearls vote-which abolished football-left the rest e of the varsity program undisturbed, but it did not settle the question of its value, its success, or its future. The argument for varsity athletics at Antioch is that it presents an object towards which the emotional life of the stu- dent may be directed. The weight of its defense must rest upon the color it lends to Antioch life, the amount of loyalty and sense of unity its fosters-in short, the emotional value to the students, the love of college and esprit dc corps. Antioch aims at all-round experience for its members. Varsity athletics can help supply a phase of it. The fate of varsity athletics, then, rests with the success or failure of varsity teams. There arises the question of whether successful teams can be produced under the cooperative plan and in a college with as high academic standards as Antioch. The records tend to show that men entering such sports as football, baseball, and basket ball, which require long training and strenuous conditioning are relatively unsuccessful, Whereas those expending the more individual effort required in tennis, golf, and fencing, are relatively successful. Football has already been discarded. The remainder of the varsity sports must prove by success that they deserve a place in the athletic program of Antioch. 179 VARSITY BASKET BALL 180 flf THOSE freshmen who came to Antioch with an 4 inordinate lust for victory, the past basket ball sea- son was undoubtedly a disappointment. Thirteen 'A We games were played in the fifteen weeks of the season with only four of the thirteen victories for Antioch. This was not calculated to raise a great pride in the breasts of varsity loving students. However, to those of us who have been at Antioch long enough to know the general run of basket ball success and can remember to what depths the fate of Antiochians at times has fallen, the past season was heartening. For the first time in years a team-that of Division B-won a majority of its games. Three games won in a row is a veritable winning streak at Antioch and many of the games were close enough to raise hopes of victory! The high points of the past season were the colorful if 'somewhat ludicrous reserve games-Antioch holding Wil- mington to 19415 with only seven minutes to play-the rousing victory over Urbana-two victories over the alumni-the win over Cedarville to end a victorious Division B-Wilmington stalling for the Hrst ten minutes of the last half with a one point lead, terminated by an Antioch basket-and finally, at the close of the season, the valiant up-hill fight against Earl- ham which Antioch lost by one point. The Division A team was captained by Iames Fyfe, the Division B by Iames Earley. 181 VARSITY BASEBALL The schedule for this season is as follows: Division B A pril 5-Dayton there April 8-Cedarville here A pril 12-Wilberforee here Division A May 3-Open May 6-Dayton here May 12-Wilmington there May I4-Cedarville there May 17-Wilmington here Division B May 31-Open june 5-Wilberforee there lane I4-Capital here lane 18-Capital there 182 Eivfpr f1'H12N the weather turns warm and the grass takes on - AJ? 'lilxgiiqif-ffl . . ,yiypi , 'ff' its summer green, thoughts of baseball creep 1nto tu' ' ff-15 5 , uf ' ' ki ,lm jf the minds of Antioch men The veterans of last year s roster and many new men answered the call for candidates. You may see them out on the diamond prac- ticing batting, pitching, and inheld play. You may see them sliding bases, galloping after Hy balls, and improving their technique on hot grounders. The result of all this is seen by the students when the varsity entertains its inter-collegiate rivals. The Division A tea-m will be captained by Ted Stanwoodg the Division B team by Iames Fyfe. 183 VARSITY TENNIS The 1930 tennis schedule is as follows Division B April 9-Wittenberg here April 16-Wittenberg there April I7-Earlham there Division A May 2-Otterbein here May 7-Kenyon here May Io-Earlham here May I4-WiZb6ff0fC6 there May 16-Kenyon there Division B May 30-Pleasmztville here Iune 4-Otterbein there Iune 6-Wilberforee here I E ENNIS is :Antiochls reigning varsity sportg the only one which has consistently retained the ability to cope With the best college talent in this section. In the last three years the greater majority of our matches have been won, so that the interest lost in other var- sity sports has been more than offset by that gained in tennis. A large part of the success of tennis during the past three seasons has been due to Walter Rutnam, Who, by his splendid playing, his diligence, and his enthusiasm, has brought the sport to a new high level of excellence. During this time he has held, without menace, the number one position on the squad, and in all his playing has lost but one OH his matches. He has officially coached the team and given careful advice and coun- cil to students who desired' to improve their game. Under his leadership tennis could not but be successful. Rutnam graduates this year. It is with sincere regrets that those interested in tennis see him play his last on Antioch courts. It is improbable, however, that his influence on the game will cease with his departure. 185 VARSITY FENCING 186 Q NE day, four years ago, Giles Wetherill, an ex- 'I1 champion of New England high schools and Michael Hitrovo, an ex-soldier, fenced a few bouts E-f""I ' J l in Kelly Hall for fun, and from this meeting grew the idea of varsity fencing. The lirst attempt to organize was made in the following spring of 1926 and in the fall regular fencing classes were started. During the winter only a few men came out for the new sport and the whole affair wore an atmosphere of casual play. There was a lack of equipment, Werherill having only a few foils. However, that winter a gift of fifteen foils was received from Mr. Strauss of New York, the father of one of the students here. In the fall of 1927 masks and jackets were purchased and regular classes inaugurated. About 25 men and 20 women signed for participance in these first classes. In the spring of 1929 these enthusiasts, organized under the name of the Antioch Fencing Club and held its first unofiicial meet with Wittenberg. This, as well as the meet in the fall of the same year, resulted in overwhelming victories for Antioch. In 192930 the Antioch fencing team had six oiiicial meets with three institutions, the University of Cincinnati, Ohio Northern University, and Wittenberg. In the spring of 1929, these three schools together with Antioch, formed the Ohio Intercollegiate Fencing Association, which promises a lively time for our fencing teams in the future. The men of Antiochls present teams are being coached by Michael Hitrovo and the Women by Robert Overstreet. 187 VARSITY GOLF 482' ,E NTIOCH is scarcely a country club, but it does boast rl some enthusiastic and worthy golfers among its Q4 students. The faculty-student golf meets have, in ' 'ee' -7- the past, been annual or semi-annual events in which the student interest has been very evident. That the legendary Antioch Golf Course-in the wilds of the glen- Was ever attempted is proof that golf has a considerable fol- lowing that will spare no effort in the furtherance of their favorite pastime. The desire on the part of the golfing element for inter- collegiate competition led, in the spring of 1926, to its adaption as a varsity sport. This season has been the fifth for the team. In these seasons, a small group, without attracting a great deal of attention, established a creditable record against opponents ranging in power from Wittenberg to Pennsylvania State. There have been, at all times, at least four golfers who could play well enough to compete with the best that most colleges have had to pit against them. 'The interest in golf is retarded by the lack of near-by facilities. For practice or play, one must go either to Xenia or Springfield. This lack of a course has made for a "Notre Dame" schedule with most of its matches in foreign territory. The ill-fated Antioch Golf Course was an effort to bring golf Within the reach of more students. The 1930 schedule consists of a match with Kenyon at Gambier on May 7, a return match at either Springfield or Xenia, and probable matches with Wittenberg. The present team, including Henry Fisher, Iohn Burroughs, Irving Burr, and Warren Burr is being managed by Orlo Williams. 189 ' INTRAMURALS N THE fall it is football, speedball, and tennis. In the K W winter the student's interest is held by basket ball, 5, , f a I va handball, and fencing. Even volley ball occupies, in its season, an important position in the Antioch sport world. When spring comes, the indoor baseballs are brought out onto the diamonds and the tennis courts are again crowded and track meets play their attractive part in the sea- son. The swimming carnival, too, makes a gala day out of an ordinary one. Students will even be observed playing at the comfortable game of quoits. Is all this activity spontaneous? Hardly! We are not seden- tary, but nevertheless all this enthusiasm, this organization, comes from the outside. It is the result of a carefully planned intramural program and the following pages will be devoted to these widely enjoyed sports. 190 GROWTH OF MEN'S INTRAMURALS HE intramural system of athletics was not born Q plan Its development has been chiefly haphazard rye ' rl Until 1926, five years after their inception, intra murals did not achieve the dignity of an organization under the auspices of the physical education department. Explaining where intramurals at Antioch came from can best be done by stating that, like Topsy, they just Ugrowedf' The Hrst intramural teams were organized during the school year 1921-22. Varsity letter men picked and coached the teams, a series of basket ball games was played and the championship of the school decided. Selections for the teams were made from the campus at large and not limited to a single hall. Later in the same year an attempt to organize an outdoor baseball league failed, due to a famine of pitching and catching talent. The following year, however, an indoor league was started and has been active ever since. In 1924 there was no varsity football team. Up until this time no intramural football had been played, the varsity util- izing the only available place on the campus. Students took advantage of the passing of varsity to play intramural football for the first time and it has proved very popular. The first all-hall teams were put on the field by Hanchett and Baker House. With the growth of organized halls, intra- murals developed rapidly. Hanchett and Baker House, having been the first two in the field, gained and maintained reputa- tions for athletic supremacy which they have been able to maintain until the introduction of rotation this year. With the coming of rotation Nash has precipitated itself into the front intramurally. Since 1927 a cup for each of the major intramural sports, touch football, basket ball, volley ball, and indoor baseball, has been awarded to the hall who shows the best record for games won and also for percentage participation during the season. Although it is true that organized halls have played a major part in development of intramurals, interest has never been as strong as it has been this year. in a carefully considered and well thought out 191 FOOTBALL 192 INTRAMURAL FOOTBALL aj' g,,,,,gEJ LEVEN teams were entered in the first A division football league by intramural representatives. The games were to prove far more interesting this ' 'Ai' year due to new rules allowing cleated shoes. Three weeks and a half, fair weather or foul, sulhced to play the entire number of games on the two fields which are now available for this sport. The Hnal game for the cham- pionship was played between Baker House and Hanchett Hall on October 8 and will long be remembered. The two teams battled up and down the field in the closest game of touch football ever seen around here. The only scores were made by Roosa of Hanchett Hall and Wilcox of Baker House, both of whom made one long, difiicult field goal apiece to end the game in a 3-3 tie. In Division B, when the faculty decided to enter a team, it became necessary to form two leagues of seven teams apiece, since every hall entered a iirst team and some a second. The intramural committee balanced the two leagues as to strength as far as was possible from the figures from previous years. The Baker House Seconds were the outstanding group and copped the medals by defeating Nash. In rainy weather fields were usually in such poor condition that trick plays were im- possible, so it may be said that straight football of the short pass type won the title. About one hundred and eighty men partici- pated in this division and there were only two accidents. 193 BASKET BALL 194 It NTRAMURAL basket ball again proved that it is the I QW! most popular of sports at Antioch by drawing fif- teen teams in Division A. Nash Hall entered three ,, ll H ' ef teams, the lineup for the first team being prac- tically the same as that of the year before. Although there was plenty of competition Nash Firsts and Seconds walked away with the titles in both circuits. This gave them the cup without any of the doubt and careful figuring which usually attends the awarding of the trophy. In Division B sixteen teams participated, every hall being represented in the first league and live in the second. Nash again entered three teams. The issue was never in doubt from the first game when West Hall entered the identical team with which it had won the medals the previous year. Hanchett Hall was the main contender for the honors. They did not draw a game with West Hall during the season and so finished their schedule with a percentage of In the playoff West Hall easily defeated them in a 20-5 game which showed a capacity crowd some of the benefits which a group of fellows may ob- tain from participating in the intramural program. In the second league the Baker House Seconds won the title by defeating Morgan Hall in a perliminary game to the West Hall-Hanchett bout. This game provided plenty of thrills although good basket ball was conspicuous by its ab- sence. The men from the far side of the New Dormitory won 15-14, the ball being in the air when the timer's whistle ended the game. The cup went to West Hall because of participation and the second team winning third place. All in all the 1929-30 basket ball season was the most suc- cessful intramural period that Antioch has had. 195 VOLLEY BALL 196 HE third period for both divisions is past the basket ".. I ball season and not quite up to the baseball time, so volley ball is the major intramural sport. At first-years ago, say the old timers-this game was not considered so good, but in the past few season it has in- creased in popularity until at the present it can hold up its head quite as proudly as football and basket ball. To the un- initiated onlooker, there seems to be but little skill required in the game, but as one tries to lift hard serves clear of the net or to spike the ball on a return, it becomes evident that this is 21 game that requires plenty of team work and practice before one can expect to make a good showing. What with running, leaping about nimbly, and socking at the ball with both hands, there is plenty of chance for a first class workout and a few thrills extra in a game of volley ball. The faculty-when not too busy sitting in judgment upon the students-turn out and trim most of the teams that the various halls can produce. In Division A this year, Nash had everything its own way in the first loop, producing one of the best intramural teams seen around here for some time. The faculty scored six straight wins but lost the championship to Nash in the playoif. A large crowd witnessed the downfall of the more venerable team which occurred on the fifth Wednesday of the period. In the second league West defeated the Nash Seconds for the championship. Nash Hall was awarded the cup for points. 197 BASEBALL 198 .114 'N THE springtime, when shirts can be discarded and I manly chests bared to catch the lackadaisical ener- gies of Old Sol, ye industrious pursuers of knowl- i"' edge dedicate their moral and physical support to the swatting old pastime of indoor baseball. Faculty and pro- teges alike may be seen expending their energies-to please the fair members of North Hall-by swinging for a home run only to come up with a meager foul tip to the catcher. There are few students who do not take advantage of the long summer evenings to either engage in the sport or to stand along the sidelines and cheer for their favorite teams. The faculty invariably has a good team. The sight of burly Doc Adams covering first base, nimble Mr. Swinnerton stop- ping fast ones on the keystone sack, and long Slim Dawson pitching them over the plate to Bob Hiller adds much to the color and sometimes to the amusement of the competition. Intramural baseball is played with a soft indoor ball, but it contains all the features of the hard ball game. Good batters have no difficulty in hoisting long ones over the heads of the racing outfielders and the pitchers perfect their underhand delivery to the extent of throwing sharp curves and mixing slow balls with fast ones in an effort to fool the batsmen., Most of the games are closely contested with lots of good natured rivalry between the teams. Usually there are two leagues and the playoff between the winning teams of each league is a much heralded encounter, certain to be filled with plenty of excitement, grandstand catches, and tight playing by players who are not tight. 199 MINOR INTRAMURALS F ALL the minor sports that exist at Antioch, hiking is perhaps the oldest and, if one is to believe the physical education reports which are turned in, it M -J "i3: T"'l"" is also the most popular. At least, it is the last resort of a vast-although unknown-percentage who need another hour to complete their required five for gym credit. Aside from this, there are many who like to tramp all day in the open with perhaps an open Ere and a few steaks for rc- freshment. The glen and the gorge, as well as the many coun- try roads offer excellent facilities for those who like to hike to stretch their legs and rest their minds from study. Next to hiking comes the urge that sends us down to the "ole swimmin' hole" at Grinne11's as soon as the weather grows the least bit encouraging. That the sport is popular is attested by the numbers that dress in the least possible and head millwards for a swim and a sunbath later. The water carnival held every year is the high point of the season and there is much rivalry both for individual and for hall honors. Intramural track is a new addition to the athletic pro- gram and if the popularity it experienced last year is repeated this season, it will probably be here to stay. All the events of the regular college meet were held with the exception of the longer runs which call for too much training. Handball is another one of the newcomers among intra- mural sports, but with the completing of the new gym its new devotees can be encountered at almost any hour of the day or night chasing industriously an elusive black ball. While it is doubtful if handball will be very popular during the last two school periods when Old Sol gets in some real beaming, for a cold, rainy, or otherwise disagreeable day it affords an easy and pleasant method for getting a good workout in a short time. 200 PROGRESS OF WOMEN'S ATHLETICS RoM the reorganizing of Antioch College until the fall of IQZS, athletics for women were supervised by men coaches and consisted entirely of intercollegi- ate basket ball. The co-eds who could not play this game were left to do their physical education in any way they saw lit. In the fall of 1925 Miss Rowe was engaged to instruct the girls and began by organizing hockey teams and marking oh' the first field. There were only three games played during the first season but since then the game has become the favor- ite of all womenls sports. Volley ball was attempted but failed. In the winter intercollegiate basket ball was voted out and Miss Rowe immediately started intramural basket ball. This was quite successful, six teams being organized and a tourna- ment played. That spring the girls played baseball and had track for the first time. In I926 the W. A. A. was organized and took charge of planning the intramural program. The Day House hockey team played a practice game with the Moraine Park tearn of Dayton, the first inter-school hockey game to be attempted. Volley ball was again started and this year proved to be a suc- cess. Basket ball was even more popular, and in the spring, be- sides baseball games and track meets, there was the Hrst tennis tournament for girls. At the end of the school year the W. A. A. held a dinner in the tea room and awarded honors. Miss Mayes arrived in 1927 and immediately reorganized the hockey schedule so that sixteen games were played under the same system as the men's intramurals. The next year was a diliicult one due to the fact that there was no adequate gym space. A second hockey tournament was held and folk dancing inaugurated, which, together with the field day held in the spring, kept the girls well occupied. This last year has been the most successful of all. With the new gymnasium there has been space or deck tennis and handball, as well as for apparatus work, all of which are new. Basket ball and volley ball have been played on an enlarged scale and the W. A. A. is already looking forward to bigger and better things in the future. 201 8, 5 Z NTIOCH co-eds are versatile! Nowhere does this state- lfftdghiln -li ment hold so true as it does in the varied athletic ass, l WM if program which they have worked out. Despite the limited number of halls in the Girls' Dorm they have their intramural tournaments in all the major sports and manage to make more noise at the games than the men do. During the hockey season especially does excitement run rife and even on moon light walks the conversation between Antioch Ioe and Iosephine usually resolves itself into a mono- logue on-hockey. These co-eds play their games for all that there is in them, too, as many a minor clinic case proves, but there is no stopping them and they always return to Miss Mayes ready for participation in whatever game the weather calls for-hockey, basket ball, baseball, volley ball, tumbling, fencing, track, lacrosse, archery, or any of a dozen others. 202 WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION HE average Antioch co ed is a far cry from her A dy 534 stiff corsets and indul ed only in the physical activ ' P ' ity of housework, dainty promenades and he mazurka. Night air would bring her disease, the sun would destroy her frail beauty, and calisthenics were imrnodest. Sup- pose she were to peep into the girls' gym at Antioch- She would throw up her hands in horror at the sight of the trim, comfortable and non-restricting gym suits. She would see her granddaughter performing on the parallel bars or the ring. Others would be seen playing handball or deck tennis. Sports, she would find, have a definite place in the everyday routine of her modern ofispring. It was three years ago, when Miss Hilda P. Mayes came to Antioch, that the Women's Athletic Association gained a con- stitution. Since then the W. A. A. has played an increasingly large part in unifying and sponsoring athletic activities for grandmother who lived most of her life inside women. Outstanding in the year was the Old English Christmas Party in costume which was held in the Tea Room. The Lord of the Manor entertained his guests with all the trimmings of an English 'manor at the Yuletide-carol singers, a boar's head, and the Yule log. It is planned to make this an annual event. In addition there were other social affairs given by the Asso- ciation-hockey banquets, a barn dance, and freshman picnics. Representatives of the Association have already gone to Cincinnati and the University of Michigan to compete with similar groups. 203 Q INDOOR SPORTS Thencw Gym 204 Q ft INCE the new mnasium has been built, the J them to have much better organized indoor "' The e ""' '5 There are, of course, the usual gym classes to which all the Freshmen and Sophomores come, togged out in their black bloomers and jerseys and answer to the calls of, "Atten-shun! Right-dress! Right-face! Forward-march!" Besides this class work, there is an intramural tournament which is run off each period. One of the favorite of the major sports is basket ball, which is played during the Winter months. Hall teams are organized and games are played for the cham- pionship. More interest is shown in basket ball than in any other sport except hockey. The joy of playing a hard game, coupled with the needed skill in basket shooting, makes it a favorite here as in schools all over America. Another favorite indoor sport is that of volley ball. Not only is it excellent exercise in stretching the muscles upward, but it is a sport that demands good team Work and is "loads of funl' besides. A good volley ball game is one of the most hair raising pastimes, as the screams that emanate from the girls' gym indicate. On rainy days in the fall and spring, tumbling seems to be the order of the day. Then it is that some of the more youthful co-eds turn somersaults with the most surprising ease, only to be seen about the campus the next morning looking like the "before" part of a Sloan's liniment ad. Some of the more popular of the minor indoor sports are fencing, country dancing, handball, and deck tennis. J WT: have a gym floor all to themselves which ffff ,Pr 1 i 205 LACROSSE 206 OUTDOGR ACTIVITIES HE "call of the wild" has a stronger appeal than indoor activity, and judging from the long list hikers we have, it is certainly so. With the beau- 'jfi-ixgl tiful glen so conveniently situated, it is only natural that many should turn to this means of getting exercise. One of the most healthful exercises, it is also one of the most en- joyable, here at Antioch. However, this is an individual sport and lacks the thrill that a team game has. Hockey, one of the most highly organ- ized team sports, is by far the most popular game for women at Antioch. The crisp fresh air, the crack of stick on stick, and the thud of many feet as the ball is rushed down the field, gives a zest to this game that no other sport can. Later in the year, about spring fever time, the old pill is brought out of the moth balls and the promising pitchers of the fair sex line themselves up in back of the gym and throw balls at a chalk mark on the wall. This game is played with a large soft ball according to the kittenball rules. This is an- other game which brings some of the best blood out to play for their halls, and although the girls may not compare with a few of our illustrious gentlemen when it comes to catching Hies, there are many who swing a mighty wicked bat. Lacrosse is still in its infancy here, but bids fair to become popular in time. There are any number of other sports such as archery, horse-back riding, swimming, skating, tennis, and speedball which are not minor because they lack appeal, but because of the lack of time and facilities. 207 all THE PARADE OF CHIMNEYS 208 ,aefaaa af" , Low1NG furnaces flaming chimneys the crash of the '3' l J a drop forge! . . . The fascination of industry! . . . To make one's way during the dark early morning l Q' "' "e' ! hours among a group of laborers as they hurry to the shop, to punch in with them, stand at the bench beside them, labor throughout the morning and, when noon comes, have lunch with them .... Thousands of them! Hundreds of thousands of them! Immense factories! Roar of machinery! Smoke, soot, grease! Mass production! . . . They struggle at their various tiny operations . . . simple tasks, perhaps just the movement of a hand. Beneath the flare of blue mercury lights, in the haze of steam and smoke with the odor of fresh-cut steel and hot motors! So simple! . . . yes! Day in and day out, year in and year out they labor. Pushed when products are needed most, laid off when the company deems it unwise to produce further 3 . . . as cogs in a great machine, tools in the hands of a world throbbing with the life and convenience they themselves make possible. But do tl1ey mind? Were it not for their prod- ucts the world would be at a standstill. Were it not for the wor1d's use of their products they would be at a standstill. Thus they are drawn into this vast whorl of industry, merely to eke out an existence. . . . . An Antioch freshman sees industry. 209 1 I I 210 'rf P H A N T A S Y RI skeletal framework of a skyscraper, silhouetted against a dull gray sky, attracted my attention. The girders, beams, and columns fascinated me,-their I unbelievable strength amazed me,-the implicit faith placed in them by the engineers frightened me. How like a house made of straws placed end on end! My eyes wandered slowly toward the top. My amazement was increased,-fright changed to terror as I watched a der- rick perched on the topmost Hoor of the uncompleted building. It was a derrick that might have been designed by a drunkard or a dope addict, whose mind was cluttered with the unreal, the fantastic, the absurd. It was a derrick whose innumerable parts would have made it the realization of an engineer's dream. It looked like a human hand with the power to grab and to lift all that might be brought forth. Its unreal dimen- sions superimposed on the building gave it a masterful touch. I watched with awe as it slowly lifted a huge column to its place. Suddenly there was a quiver in its gigantic boom that seemed to rock the entire building to its basic caissons. Then came the din of cracking and bending steel, of rivets being ripped from their places, and the pitiful whining of steel cable rushing madly on through pulleys was overwhelm- mg. 2II The sight of the broken and twisted steel hurtling earth- ward petrified me. It bumped against the side of the building on its way down,-down,-down towards the earth and to the ultimate destruction of all that lay within its path. In the next 'moment the picture was changed. Only chaos and destruction remained. Lives had been crushed out of ex- istence by this falling giant,-property had been destroyed. How quiet it was after that few seconds. It was the silence of death,-the death of men and the death of a demon. 213 INDUSTRY 214 T H E L A D L E M A N is throat felt as if it were choked with soot. The ff 3? f 3'l tl l burning in his lungs and nose was unbearable. 3 y! Sharp pains shot through his aching arms and A X ' A back. Excruciating heat blasted his face and bare crest 1 . Holding the ladle with his left hand, he shut off the fuel line while the foreman cut down the air blast. As the roar died, a scoop of charcoal was dropped into the glowing maw, causing it to cough a shower of crackling, orange sparks. "Alright son-here she comes!" From the lip of the dull red mouth, a stream of molten white brass bubbled and gurgled into the ladle. It gave out a sharp slapping sound as it gradually filled up. The ever- increasing weight made him feel that he must drop the ladle or have his arms torn from his scorching body. He dared not take his seared eyes from the glowing stream for fear of letting some of the metal spatter over his legs and feet. "That's good! Hurry up with 'er and don't let it freeze!" With a rapid dog-trot he jogged over to the pouring HOOI, being careful not to spill the seething contents. As he poured each mold it belched a cloud of green gaseous smoke. The re- sulting sickish-sweet taste reminded him of a time when, as a boy, he put a copper penny in his mouth. Sweat rolled tan- talizingly down his face, back of his ears and dripped off his chin onto his bare chest and arms. He longed to brush it away, but dared not release the ladle handle. Water !-was what he craved-water! A momentary pic- ture flashed through his throbbing brain. He saw a long, green lawn stretching away to a clear lake. OE the lake came a breeze. A boy, like himself, stood with wide-spread arms, deeply breathing the fresh lake air- "Let's go, come on, 1et's go!" It was the foreman's voice. The boy turned back to the scorching heat, the back aches, the burning lungs and sweat soaked clothes . . . and worked doggedly until the last metal from the seemingly bottomless furnace was poured. 215 STUDENTS NOT INCL'UD'ED IN P I C T U R E S SENIORS Gordon Coleson Harold, Yellow Springs, Ohio Donald Charles Larmouth, Lansing, Michigan Chappell Rose, New London, Connecticut Iohn Troughton Thompson, Hinsdale, Illinois Leland Davenport Whitescarver, Denver, Colorado SUB-SENIORS Harriet Morse Blaisdell, Lakewood, Ohio Iohn Chester Case, Butte, Montana Elizabeth Gretchen Iacobus, Millbrook, New York IUNIORS Charles Kenneth Arey, South Portland, Maine Horace Carl Champney, Yellow Springs, Ohio Eliot Davis, Galeshurg, Illinois Iohn Clarkson Evans, West Plains Missouri Ronald Iacobs Gleason, Wilson, Pennsylvania Herbert Frederick Gough, Lonsdale, Rhode Island Eldon Henry Hendrickson, Virogua, Wisconsin Frederick D.

The work was done on o17set paper with an ordinary flat bed press which involved dijieulties that only the pressmen and printer can appreciate. The printing of half-tones on this type of paper offered additional problems but the artistie atmosphere gained by the soft nature of this paper has, we hope, justi- fied the attempt. The stay' wishes to thank the print- ing establishment for its splendid eo- operation and if our readers can but par- tially appreeiate the energy expended in this departure, our work has been well worth while.
