TRUSS CLUB OFFICERS Leo J. McDonald .... Curtis W. Thomas. . . Ralph W. Stahl ,,.......,., Prof. Charles R. Swineford ,.., As the present college year draws to a close, the Truss Club concludes its tenth year of successful operation as an organization on the Armour campus. The Truss Club was founded in the fall of 1924 by a group of Senior students in the department of Civil Engineering. The basic purpose of the organization is to unite men of good scholastic standing and good personal character into a closer union whereby mutual benefits may be derived by all, and to form a closer bond between Armour Institute and its members. The social calendar has been dotted with Alumni Smokers, Radio Dances, Bridge Part- ies, and get-together dinners. These activities . . . .President . . . .Secretary ....,..,Trcasurer , , . .Faculty Member were conducted in the club rooms because of the accommodations and because of the de- gree of informality which they afforded. These affairs provided evenings of real enter- tainment and enjoyment and afforded splen- did social contacts. The spirit of friendship and comradship manifested by the members has been invalu- able and has aided materially in drawing another pleasant year to a close. It is the aim and delight of the Truss Club to work in union with other organizations, work in harmony with the school, and to uphold the morale and broaden the scope of educational and social activities.

RIFLE CLUB OFFICERS P1'CSlClCI1E ........ ,......,.. ,.,, A 1' thug Mgrow Secretary-Treasurer . . . Manager ...,.... Team Captain .... Range Officer. . . The Armour Tech Rifle Club, although one of the youngest organizations, is one of the most outstanding at Armour. It has lived up to its founder's purposes, that of en- couraging competitive matches with teams throughout the country and the teaching of the safe use of fire-arms. Recognition by the A.T.A.A. in the award- ing of sweaters and letters and the support of the student body have shown that it is an integral part of Armour's activities. The team, which is one of the best in the country, has been very successful in "big time" competition. For the fourth consecu- tive year it is headed toward the Illinois State Championship. A little hard luck at the be- ginning of the season made it possible for the Humboldt Park Gun Club to win this year's team trophy match. Steady improvement, . . . .William Henning . . .Richard Harwood . . . .Elmer Renstrom . . . .Joseph DeBoo however, showed victories over the New York Stock Exchange, Appleton Rifle Club, Ohio State University, University of Michi- gan, University of Minnesota, and Lawson Y.M.C.A. The Club's equipment was materially strengthened by the acquisition of a new Winchester target rifle. With this addition, the use of the range has been extended to its full length. The range is now located in the basement of Chapin Hall. The Club participates in shoulder to shoul- der matches or exchange score cards by mail with those teams with which it is impossible to meet in personal matches. The Armour- ites favor the former type of competition. It is hoped that more of the future matches will be of this form.

ARMOUR PLAYERS The Armour Players, with Professor Wal- ter Hendricks as sponsor, carried a cast of about twenty-five members during the year. The Players met every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for rehearsal in the assembly hall. At the first meeting the following oflicers were elected: Alexander Kulpak, president, Diamond S. Dickey, secretary, Carl Scher- mer, treasurer, and Clarence Clarkson, pro- ducer. "The Three Little Shepherds" was the play chosen for the first performance. It had an all star male cast which included Sidney Kreimen, Carl Schermer, Sydney Meiner, and john Graf. Due to the hard work done on the production by Professor Hendricks and the cast, it was very well received by the students. The greatest achievement of the Armour Players during the whole year and in the history of Armour was the presentation of Edmond Rostand's "Romances.', The play was given in the spring of the year and was well attended by the students and the faculty. Clarence Clarkson, Sydney Meiner, Carl Schermer, Sidney Kreimen, and Harry Tice all gave sterling performances which helped to put the play over. CHESS CLUB The Armour Tech Chess Club was found- ed two years ago under the guidance of Pro- fessor Ensz and the sponsorship of the Camp- us Club. The purpose of the club is to form a means of diversion and recreation for those who have learned to appreciate the game and also to help the beginners in mastering its intricacies. Chess matches have been held with various schools and clubs such as Crane Junior Col- lege, Wheaton College, Oak Park Chess Club, and the South Side Chess Club. When the matches are held on the home grounds the teams play in the rooms of the Truss Club. The practice sessions of the club are usually played in the large drafting rooms in Chapin Hall. The Armour Chess Club is now a member of the Illinois Chess Association. Member- ship in this association entitles the club to compete in tournaments sponsored by the association and each member of the club re- ceives a monthly chess bulletin. The mem- bers of the club are rated by means of what is known as the "Perpetual Tournament Table." This table was compiled by E. G. Short. E. Hoyer, Krciman, I.
