But l thought that Armour-" That is right. Armour has no coedsp our class-rooms are not graced with the silk stocking, the powder puff, the lipstick 7 our Glee Club has no Sopranos. But this is a record of life at Armour, and as such it can no more ignore the "'Armour girls" than it can the facul- ty or the basketball team. They have come to our dances, they have typed our reports, they have listened to the same Musical Clubs concert four times in one year because we asked them to comep they have, graciously or otherwise, allowed us to break dates in favor of last minute meetings, they have listened patiently to our explanations of Open l-louse exhibits. lt is they we think about when we plan our social affairs, it is they who are frequently topics of our all too frequent bull-sessionsg and when, some time inthe future, we recall our lives at Armour, it is they about whom we shall think just as surely as about green caps or Circus Day. And so it is particularly fitting that this, a book of inci- dents to be remembered, be dedicated to those who will probably be remembered most from our student days. Here is to them-the Girls of Armour. F 9- 'Q-Z' FCREWCRD NCTHER school year is drawing to its close. To some of us, this means only a short taste of college life, to others, it marks the end of school days for- ever. To all of us, things have happened this year which have helped shape the courses of our lives. During this year, we have worked, loafed, laughed, sung, danced, with all the infinite variety and yet the grind- ing monotony oi student life. Our chief purpose in coming to school has loeen to learn, to obtain training in our chosen profession. But when we think of Armour, it will be not in terms of studies, books, or drawing looardsp it will be in terms of incidents, events, and asso- ciations. We have tried to capture from this year a few of these fleeting incidents and events and associations of which it is composed. lt is hoped that the CYCLE of 1937 may loring you hours of enjoyment as you read it now, reviewing the year just passed: but even more it is hoped that it may bring you just a few moments of happiness when you pause from the rush of modern living to recall the scenes and activities of your student days. And so, we present . . . the CYCLE of 1937. 04' ughu. lf?fl.1!L. 'LU l..lfL.'LQ.L fx f' Toi L F' Lg 3 Y 1 Ute :igff-,E 51-Yr'?x .I J ingest I' .f 6 A I A li fu -S171 S p..c.c.n..q.

SEEKING TO LEARN Mankind has always sought to determine what caused the various motions and actions about us. ln this process, vast stores of knowledge have been set up. As embryonic engi- neers, we, too, seek to learn or partake of this wealth of know- ledge. For this reason, we have prepared ourselves by first studying in grammar and then in high school, and now have chosen Armour to guide us further into the realms of learning and to show us the way to knowledge. From the fundamen- tals of arithmetic we have come a long way to the study of the comparatively advanced subjects, such as calculus, physics, and chemistry. Finally we shall enter our chosen fields, where we must seek to apply the fundamentals which We have gathered along our way. Here, again, we must continue in our quest for knowl- edge in order to stay abreast of progress in our own sphere. 9 Zzakz 5,6- ,4, ARMOUR GOES FORWARD The fronts l a ong which Armour is advancing are indicated by important developme t ' ns in the regular undergraduate courses, by an enlarged progra f m or the evening school by the response from s l ' e ected high school graduates and from industry of opportunities offered b y the Cooperative Course, by the participation of executives from some forty leading companies in the conference course in Plant Engineering and Maintenance carried on at Weekly dinner meetings at a downtown hotel d , an most significant of all, by notable expansion in research and d gra uate study. Policies under which new activities have been undertaken and old ones enlarged ha ' ve involved the strengthening of instruction by reduction of teachin l ., g oads, by improved condi- tions in the faculty, and by the addition to the staff of men of scientific distinction in their fields. lt has also been pos- sible to allocate considerable time of men already on the staff to creative engineering research. The outstanding event of the year was doubtlessly the successful launching of th , e Research Foundation. The Foun- dation was incorporated in A r'l l p 1, . 936, and on September l, 1936, Dr. Thomas S. Poulter became Director,and the Founda- tion took over the research lc wor carried on in the several ln- stitute laboratories. Dr Poulter was . senior scientist of the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition, and is distinguished for his work in electrical, physical, and optical effects of extremely high pressures. Among the subjects now undergoing research are Illinois-Indiana coals, domestic stokers, chemical filtra- tion, flow of heat, heat exchanges, and the chemistry of oils. From the standpoint of t h' eac ing, research, and of community service, the year has been one f ' o exceptional progress. 10 THE DEAN'S MESSAGE Underwood 6- Underwood An undergraduate course in engineering is not intended to produce "finished" engineers. This being the case, each en- gineering student must give careful consideration to that phase of his education which follows graduation from the four-year curriculum. Some four-year graduates should remain in col- lege for additional study and research leading to advanced degrees, but for the majority, the formal part of their engineer- ing education stops at the end of the collegiate years. The first five years after graduation are particularly impor- tant in determining the eventual progress of the engineer. lt is during this period that he must be extending his education and gaining experience so that he may merit true professional standing. It is during this period that he should obtain a com- prehensive knowledge of the profession which he is entering, should affiliate himself with national and local engineering societies, and develop a thorough understanding of the prob- lems of professional responsibility and citizenship. Until recently, attempts to assist the young engineer enter- ing the profession have been more or less sporadic, but now the Engineers' Council for Professional Development has as one of its chief functions the broad purpose of assisting in the personal and professional growth and development of the graduate, both as an engineer and as a citizen, This Coun- cil hopes to be of material assistance in the selection and guidance of high school students planning to enter engineer- ing colleges, and in the professional development of the young engineering graduate. The young engineering graduate should familiarize himself promptly with this program and avail himself Whole-heartedly of the assistance offered. ll J-ffm Willard E. Hotchkiss Henry T.

Schommer, the guiding influence behind Armour Tech's athletic affairs, has faced a difficult and exceedingly trying situation in his attempts to place Armour's athletic teams among the leaders in interscholastic competition. lf he continues to be as successful as he has been in the past, Armour Will have her name, more and more, before the public of not only the Chicago area but also the entire Middle West. The Institute will be able to draw up full schedules for all its teams and supply the opposition necessary to build up first-class teams. The Armour Relays have also contributed to a great extent to the fine reputation that Armour enjoys in athletic circles. Each year, for the last nine years, Professor Schommer has planned the event which is the peak of the athletic year for the stars of every track team in the central part of the country. Because of his unfailing ef- forts, the Relays, this year, were a larger and more colorful track carnival than ever before. ' Armour Institute of Technology is extremely fortunate to have a man capable ugh to devote the time necessary to shoulder the responsibilities of directing the ed activities of the athletic staff. Such a man is Iohn I. Schommer. 24 Huntly Hotchkiss Schommer Allison Healcl Stenger McNamara Heike Dunbar Chapin Chelqren Kruse ARMOUR TECH STUDENT ASSOCIATION BOARD OF CONTROL Philip C.

Representative As the golden strealts of dawn shot across the morning sky, many a weary freshman sighed, blew out the battered oil lamp, looked tenderly at his un- rufiled bed, removed his shirt, ...... and then finished his homework by day- light. Thus did Armour tear down, smash out, and pulverize any illusions that the cocky high school loafer may have had. But then, let's start from the be- ginning in order to explain that haggard bleary-eyed expression of the Class of '4U. lt all started when the gullible freshmen blithely paid out good money to be- come a slave, while others were leaning on P.W.A. shovels and collecting it. Of course at first everything ran too smoothly, but in the background lurked the unforeseen dangers soon to be apparent. The new men were welcomed cordially by both the professors and the upperclassmen. Those lO:3O naps, with "Doc" Tilobals droning out a technical lullaby, fitted in perfectly as a restorative for fellows worn out from too many dates. Then, when the sky shown brightest, the first call to arms was issued, and along came the Fresh- man Handshake. Here, with Dr. Amsbary's inspiring poetry, and the ancient gastrcnomical delight, cider and doughnuts, the overbearing freshmen were informed of the quaint old fashioned custom of the wearing of the green. At this point any ideas the freshmen may have had concerning their importance to the school took on a new form, especially after witnessing the intricate gy- rations of the upper classmen in a wrestling exhibition. The scene changed. The professors soon hit their stride, and many were the broken hurdles left in their wake by the desperately plodding freshman. The sophomores became exceedingly ungentlemanly, and new sounds began to break upon the balmy autumn air. Pants! .... were the subject of conver- 26 Brinkmo n, Worcester, Stedman The Scholarship Exams Busted! The Freshman l-landshake sation. Pants in the office. Pants in the lunchrocm. Pants in the library. Pants, here there and everywhere, the baggy knees and colored patches cf the knock kneed freshrnen's pants. But lo! the sun broke through and nature smiled. Can they ever forget the coveted position they held during that memorable Rush W'eek. A glorious truce to a horrible slaughter, but a truce it was, for the hostilitles were resumed with renewed vigor. Soon all bounds were broken, and at times, not so awfully rare, the shell holes and bodies on Federal Street brought back the beautiful memories of that zero hour in No Man's Land. When such activities had hit a roaring high, a treaty was called while the classes got together to discuss the situation. The agreement resulting from these arbitraticns will stand as an everlasting monument to the Class of '40, T'was the first time the sophomores and freshmen had ever come to any kind of an agreeable understanding. One day, while feeling in a benevolent mood to all society in general, they were hopelessly caught unawares of their neglected homework in the shape of little brown envelopes. Their common stock suffered a horrible set back and nearly fell off the market, while the preferred showed an instantaneous decline in interest rates. When the smoke cleared, those left standing decided to hold an election for class officers. Soap box radicals sprang forward. Politi- 27 - , E- What Do We Do Now, Prof? cal alliances were formed. Politicians sprang from nowhere and the battle was on. Election day broke bright and clear and amid the tur- moil of riots and rnob violence, the freshmen proclaimed their leaders. After the Santa Claus recess, the freshman's patron saint, new vigor and vitality could be noticed. Those little brown envelopes were in- triguing, but there was no need to let them go any further. Brief cases became heavier, and fewer cases of over sleeping were reported. Then the hectic week of mid-semester examsg Abrahamson Alsberq Anderson, L. E Anthony, W.

Tradition is that misguided longing for immortality by proxy that makes toe-dancers insure their children against flat feet, and lumbering limbs of the law to proudly bequeath to their offspring a broad and helpful hint as to their possible careers in the guise of a conscientiously devel- oped set of fallen arches. lt's the present hang over from a bender of the past. And like ' ore or less univer- hangove sally taken for granted. Armour has a tradition which is peculiarly its own, as is evidenced by the accompanying photographs. We even have evidence show- ing the natives of this vicinity trying to copy AATTHOUTIS quaint manner of holding the Frosh in check. We remind you that the camera does not lie. lt has, however, at times been known to suppress a good deal of the truth.

' I Deloor 's Choking with Emotion It's In the Blood Mission Collapses INTERCLASS BASEBALL Intramural Manager Hackman The annual interclass baseball tournament opened on October 7, when the luniors succeeded in defeating their traditional rivals, the Seniors, by the score of 4-3. All of the runs and all but one of the hits were made in the first three innings. Green, the winning pitcher, went all the way for the luniors, allowing tour hits. He struck out nine men and gave five free rides to first base. Winel, the losing pitcher, allowed only one hit, a single in the second inning, after the initial lunior spree in which they got three hits. The Iuniors got three runs in the first and one in the second, the Seniors ran in all three of their runs in the third inning. T ln the second game of the interclass tourney, the Sophomores earned the right to meet the juniors in the finals by defeating the Freshmen, 5-3. Kren, the starting pitcher for the Sophomores, allowed four hits, four walks, and struck out four men. Pacocha, who went all the way for the Freshmen, allowed six hits and struck out seven men. The soph half of the first inning saw one run chalked up. The second inning brought all of the Freshman runs. ln the third inning, consecutive hits by Penn, Ropek, and Ephraim were combined with a bad throw to give the Sophs the two tying runs. The fourth inning saw the Sophomores push the two winning runs across the plate when Moculeski's fly to center scored Tullgren and Kren. ln the final game of the interclass baseball tournament, the Iuniors downed the Sophomores by a score of 4 to l. Green pitched for the Iuniors, allowing the Sophomores only two hits while striking out five men. Penn went all the way for the Sophomores, allowing six hits and striking out six men. Both sides were retired in order in the first two frames. Arends, the first man up in the third, got the first hit of the game. He scored after a sacrifice fly and the second hit by Roche. The Sophs cut off further scoring but in their half of the inning could do nothing with Green's pitching. The fourth inning opened with a clean single by Seidenberg, who stole second and went to third on an error. Another hit, this time by lrving, brought in run number two. Arend's single brought in lrving with run number three, before the Sophs could put the cork on. Ephraim opened the Sophomore half of the inning by getting on base on an error. Kruse advanced him with a single, and a little later Ephraim scored on a high fly to the outfield. With two men on base in the fifth Seidenberg singled to score the man from third with the fourth run for the Iuniors. Roche was out at home on a fielder's choice to end the scoring. 32 INTERCLASS BASKETBALL The first game in the interclass basketball tournament saw an upset when the Seniors de- feated the luniors, who for two years have held the championship. The score, which sounds more like a baseball game, was 9 to 7. lt was a close, hard-fought game. Close guarding aided in keeping the scoring rare and the physical contacts frequent. The first half was well under Way before anyone broke into the scoring column. A charity toss by Skeppstrom drew first blood for the luniors. lkenn's basket and Skuza's free throw put the Seniors in the lead for a short time. Following the basket by the Iuniors which tied the score, a long shot by Dreis again put the Seniors out in front 5-3 as the half ended. The second half saw each team gather in 4 points to bring the score to 9 to 7. At this point the Seniors instigated a stall which was successful in letting them keep possession of the ball. In the Sophomore-Freshman game the Frosh had things all their own way as they went on to win 21-8. The Sophomores chalked up the first points by snappy playing in the first few minutes. It was not until the end of first half that the Frosh succeeded in breaking the ice. A long shot by Eggers tied the score. Soon after this Ratto scored for the Sophs to bring the score to 4-2. The half ended after a free toss by Pinkus of the Frosh. The second half brought a scoring spree by the Frosh which left the Sophs far behind. It was not until almost the end of the game before the Sophomores got another basket, which was put in by Carlson. The Seniors succeeded in defeating the Freshman team to annex the championship, by the score of l3 to ll. The Frosh had a smooth- working team which kept a good passing at- tack until a scoring opportunity presented itself. The Seniors relied mostly on long shots for their scoring. The lead went back and forth until Gerwig intercepted a pass and sunk a nice basket to make the score ll-8 in the Seniors' favor. ln the closing minutes there were frantic shots by both teams which resulted in one bas- ket for each side. Then, as the game ended, D'Amato put in a free toss to bring the final score to 13-ll in the Seniors' favor. Views of the Senior-Freshman Game "-And Then She Says . . . "- Ballet Russel Take That! Keep Your Hands Out of My Pocket! INTERCLASS TOUCHBALL Under the guidance of the Intramural sports manager, Frank Hackman, touchball assumed a larger and more important place in the inter- class sports of Armour than it ever has in the past. Practically every department entered a team in the play, and competition towards the end of the tournament was very stiff indeed. ln the last Week of play there were only five teams left in the finals. These were the lunior Mechanicals, Senior Mechanicals, Senior Chemicals, Senior Electricals, and the Fresh- man C team. As the play progressed, the Sen- ior Chemicals defeated the Senior Electricals by the score of 12-U, eliminating them from the competition. The strong passing combinations of the Senior Chemicals, namely that of For- berg, Hackman, and Skuza, was the outstand- ing feature of the game. The lunior Mechani- cals completely swamped the Freshman team, beating them by the score of 24-8. Seidenburg was the outstanding player on the Mech's team, scoring on the long passes of O'Brien and Englethaler. In one instance Irv inter- cepted a freshman pass and ran three quarters of the length of the field to score a touchdown. ln their second game ot the semi-finals the Senior Schmiers defeated the Senior Mechs. It was a very close game, no scoring being done until the last few minutes of the game when the Chemicals scored the only touchdown of the game. lt was scored on a pass from Forberg to Kreml. ln the final game ot the tournament, the Sen- ior Chemicals defeated the lunior Mechanicals by the score of l4-8 to be acclaimed champions for the second year in a row. The game started with the luniors getting two points on a safety, and then shortly afterward receiving six more on a touchdown. Towards the end of the first halt, the Chemicals obtained eight points in exactly the same manner. The score remained at eight all for the entire second halt and dn overtime period had to be played to determine the victor. Finally a long pass by Skuza took the Chems from their own goal line down to the Mechanicals. Kreml and Dreis brought the ball to the Mech's two yard line on running plays, and the luniors decided to kick into sate territory. Simeon fumbled the ball, however, as he was hampered by lack of space, and Forberg recovered for the winning touchdown. The members of the winning team were For- berg, Kreml, Hackman, Skuza, Dreis, Schultz, and Heike. He Got Away! He Didn't! Skuza Me, Please!

Social fraternities at Armour have increased the strength of their position and their connection with the school by the unified effort of the Interfraternity Council of Armour Institute. The Council has worked closely with the Faculty Committee on Fraternity Relations in accomplishing this purpose. The Council supervises all interfraternity competitions and through them increases the friendly rivalry between the Various Houses. Cups are awarded to the winning houses by the council in these events. Rushing rules are for- mulated each year by this organization for the conduction of "Rush Week." One of the major accomplishments of the Council each year is the sponsor- ing of the lnterfraternity Formal. This year, the affair was held at the Elmhurst Country Club, where seventy-five fraternity men and their dates found enjoy- ment in a delightful evening of dancing and dining. 37 OFFICERS President .......................

Conceived as a National Organization, one which would place chapters only in the larger schools, it gradually expanded in the east and south, later spreading westward to the bounds of the Pacific, until it now contains thirty-nine chapters. Alpha Epsilon Chapter of Phi Kappa Sigma was the first such group to be established on the campus of Armour Institute of Technology. Fifteen men in school in the year of 1895 organized the Paragraph Club, their house being located at 34th Street and Armour Avenue. After flourishing for two years as a local organization, this Paragraph Club, whose aim had been to petition a good national fraternity, received its charter as Alpha Epsilon Chapter of the Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity, marking the coming of the first fraternity on the Armour campus. lames D.

Robert lohnson HISTORY On December 10, l904, in Charleston, South Carolina, a small but earnest group of collegians of the time-honored College of Charleston, the oldest of municipal colleges, gathered together in the home of the parents of one of them. That meeting was the inception of a new fraternity which adopted in l906 the draft of a constitution and laws providing for a national organization. Incorporation as a national college fraternity was granted by the State of South Carolina on December 23, 1907. The next twenty-eight years saw the expan- sion of the fraternity all over the country to a chapter enrollment of forty. ln the spring of l935, Beta Psi Fraternity looked forward to a national affilia- tion with some larger organization. lt was disclosed that the ideals and prin- ciples of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity were similar to Beta Psi, and so a merger was consummated to enable Beta Psi to perpetuate and further disseminate these beliefs through the broader fields of mutual association. On May 5, l935, Beta Chapter of Beta Psi Fraternity at Armour Institute of Technology was formally installed as the Alpha Phi Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. 57 lust Studying Hell Week Hell Cats Place Your Bets Rush Dance ........

Armour Institute of Technology The Senior Informal at the Congress Hotel. Inset, Chair- man Art Dreis November twenty-seventh, the day after Thanksgiving. A sizeable increase in traffic about the Congress Hotel was noted in the evening. Carload after carload of informally but attractively dressed couples arrived upon the scene. What could be the attraction? Where could these gay young people be going? Oh, but of course! We should have known. That was the night of the Armour Tech Senior Informal. The continued policy of the Class of l937 of holding its dances in the finest setting available with a superior orchestra and pleasingly dignified souvenir bid at a minimum price brought out the Armour- ites en masse. Underclassmen, upperclassmen, alumni, faculty, all were well represented at this, the last open social function to be held by the Class of 1937. They swarrned through the lobby and threaded their way to the beautiful Gold Room at the Congress Hotel and took the social committee by storm with their last minute demands for bids. They chatted in small groups in the lounges, laughed gaily at the edge of the dance floor, waved greetings to other groups in other corners. But when lack Russel and his orchestra played, the lounges were deserted: the Techawks and their guests-and how these Armour boys do pick 'em-glided across the floor in time with the appealing notes of the orchestra. The continued gaiety of the crowd and the reluctance to leave that all felt bore witness to the entire success of the evening. This gay but dignified affair could very well serve as a model for any of the succeeding social events of the year. 60 THE SENIOR INFORMAL ARX DANCE The Dian: Bacchanale Held at the Diana Court of the Michigan Square Building The Iunior Class of Archiv tects chose as the theme for the annual Armour Archi- tectural Society dance the spirit of the Bacchanale. The history of the Ancient Bac- chanale dates back to the Greeks, when they had their festivals in honor of the god Dianysos, the god of Wine, Ecstacy, loy, and Happiness. Later the Romans continued t these same festivals but changed the name of the god to Bacchus. V. Despite many obstacles, H the lovely Diana Court of the Michigan Square Build- ing was selected as the site of the dance. The court is extremely modern in its architecture and decoration, yet oldsworld in its atmosphere ot peace and quiet charm. The noise and hurry of busy Michigan Avenue is lost in the spac- iousness of the court, and the guests seemed to drop their worries as they listened to the music and the tinkling fountain-the beautiful Fountain of Diana, by Carl Milles, whose works formed one of the chief exhibits of the Swedish Government at A Century of Progress. A circular terrace overlooks the fountain and from the terrace great pillars rise three stories to a golden ceiling. Illuminated panels of etched glass by Edgar Miller light the upper heights of the court. The Royal Club Orchestra, directed by Arthur Wise, was obtained to furnish the music for this unique and outstanding affair. They were chosen for their famous sweet swing type of music.

The structure of the advisory committee has changed greatly in recent years. Until l935 there were two separate groups, the Faculty Committee, which was closely related to the "Cycle", and was composed of members of the faculty and the "Cycle", and the Board of Publications, which was essentially two committees each consisting of three faculty members and the managing board of the other two publica- tions. One of these committees dealt with matters pertaining to the "News", while the other limited itself to the "Engineer." In the following year the Student Publications Advisory Committee was formed. This move was accompanied by the placing of the editorial policy into the hands of the students and in this way increased the amount of student control over the publications. In that year this body acted in its advisory ca- pacity for all of the publications, the "Cycle," the "News," and the "Engineer," When the "Engineer" was placed under its own separate Managing Board, the scope of the work of the S.P.A.C. was con- siderably reduced, since the "Engineer and Alumnus" is now completely inde- pendent. The Committee is at the present time made up of five faculty members who are interested in the welfare of the Student Publications. lt is to these men that the managing boards of the "Cycle" and the "News" turn for advice on matters of busi- ness policy. Student publications at I . mour are fortunate to have such a gro' to advise on business matters, and s' leave complete student control over et torial policy. Hendricks 63 i Amvioun TECH T NEWS Fred L. Leason, lr. Editor-in-Chief Norton Gerber Managing Editor loseph M. Kubert Sports Editor Sidney Rabinowitz News Editor Herman O. Bauermeister Copy Editor Ervin l. Simek Business Manager Silently, yet effectively, fulfilling its purpose of informing the Armour student about what his col- leagues are doing, the Armour Tech News, pre- sented to the school each week by a small group of interested students, has grown from a mere vertibra to the full backbone of student opinion. That the paper has become an impregnable part of student life is readily seen in the way students accept it without comment each week, and in the wild questioning and sincere disappointment when, by accident, it does not appear in the proper place at the right time. The first issue of the Armour Tech News appeared nine years ago. Since then it has grown in size and importance to the esteemed position which it now enjoys. lts policies have grown with the school and her students until it has established an enviable record of ideals and news writing traditions honored by each new staff of editors. Handled entirely by a student staff who are given no awards and no pay for their work and who have very little time for it anyway, the gathering and printing of news has necessarily fol- lowed a careful plan. This plan has been fostered and developed by each successive managing board until now it has reached an efficiency compar- l able to that used on the city daily , pgpers' The Tech News Dinner at the Stevens Hotel 64 Assignment Editors W.

Alexander 65 ARMOUR ENGINEER AND ALUMNUS Hendricks Moreton Brissman Popper The "Armour Engineer" has undergone considerable change since its con- ception in l9l9. At that time, it was a small technical journal and presented articles of specialized subjects of interest only to those engaged in these par- ticular fields. Up to l934, the magazine was developed along scientific lines and was rated highly by the various engineering publications organizations ta which it belonged. ln the spring cf 1934, however, it was decided to revamp entirely the editorial policy of the "Engineer". The book was to be more a contemporary magazine, relating events at Armour as well as presenting technical and scientific articles. Some of the features of the change were the inclusion of more illustrations, C1 humor section, and a section devoted to the Alumni notes. lt was hoped that these changes in policy would increase the popularity of the magazine with the Armour students, faculty, and alumni. - The management of the publication was entrusted to a board consisting of one faculty member, one alumnus, and two student members. The purpose of the magazine, as decided by the board, is to promote the interest of students, faculty and alumni through the establishment of better contacts between all three. In keeping with the proposed idea of supplying every alumnus with his copy of the new book, the name was changed to the "Armour Engineer and Alumnus". As a result of the work of the magazine board since its change in policy, the reputation of the "Engineer" has risen higher among the leading scientific college publications. Also, the demand for copies has increased as may be seen by the fact that, in its eighth issue, it had a circulation of twenty thousand. 66 Harwood, Westerman MANAGING BOARD Professor Walter Hendricks ..... ..........,..

Westerman '29 Martin THE CYCLE What shall we say of this, the CYCLE of 1937? lt is the same old record of the same old events at the same old school that every CYCLE has been. For nothing really new happens in a collegeg there are only somewhat different ways of learning calc, of stalling on homework, of flunking quizzes, of cutting class. But, whether we simply let our head nod a little bit, or really put our feet up on the chair ahead and lean back against the wall to get comfortable, sleeping through class is still sleeping through class. And so, the CYCLE of l937 is not newp it is only somewhat different in form. We have, so to speak, stopped nodding our head and have got comfortable against the wall in planning this book. The faculty, the classes, the athletics, the fraternities, the activities, all are here presented, but not in separate sections, as has been customary. In an attempt to present a more vivid pic- ture of life at Armour, we have placed the organizations and activities in the order in which they come into greatest prominence during the school year. The record of this book would be incomplete without a word of sincere thanks to the many members of the faculty and student body who have aided in the preparation of this book for publication. Special thanks are due to Mr. Bruce Cowan of Pontiac Engraving and Electrotype Company, Mr. Enoch Linden of the Linden Printing Company, Mr. Roy Solem of Marshal Studio, and Mr. Kenneth Cooley of S. K. Smith Company. , Laise 68 Editor-in-Chief ........ Business Manager. . . Assistant to the Editor .... Organizations Editor .... Fraternity Editor ..... Sports Editor ....... College Editor ....

' .lt THE COOPERATIVE CLASSES February l936 marked the beginning of the lndustrial Cooperative Scholar- ships in Mechanical Engineering and the introduction of some eighty earnest but pecuniarily embarrassed searchers for knowledge in the mysteries of sliderule and micrometer. We had embarked upon a pioneer voyage of five years with our goal a B.S. Degree. Our course in the past year has been rough, and a number of men were lost overboard, but we look forward with anticipation to happy landings on the distant shore. A selected group, the "coops" have been forced to meet not only the rigorous requirements of a condensed and concentrated course, but also the no less exacting demands of the modern industrial setup. The fact that we have done so is attested by the remark of one employer, "I could use four more boys like the two l have working for me now." lndeed, there are more positions available than there are boys to fill them. The one great advantage that the cooperative course offers, besides enabling ambitious students to Work their way through college, is the fact that the theoretical knowledge acquired at school is taken more seriously after a work period in shop or foundry. The Coop Economic Club has been organized, wherein members workin various projects while out on the job. Semi-monthly meetings and discussions are then held in which both out-of-school students and those in school participate. The only time the students at school meet their working alternates is at social activities, and, as a result, a special setup was necessary to maintain contact between the groups. Co-executive offices of president, secretary, and treasurer were established, and the measures passed upon by the group at school are regarded as law by the group at work. Since our interests are so closely akin, no difficulties have been met, and a harmonious class unity has been maintained. . The repeating cycle of school and work has introduced so many contrasts that our lives in the past year have been anything but dull. From the droop- ing eyelids and spinning heads of school to the blistered hands and aching backs of industryy from empty pockets to jingling jeansy from the soft voice of the chem prof to the basso bark of the straw boss: from quiet evenings at home with eraser and slipstick to evenings all our own. As a class we were rather slow in engaging in regular class activities, primarily because of the fact that we were at school only eight weeks at a time and acted as a unit without dependence on the freshman class. lunior Week and the Class Rush were our first activities in cooperation with the Class of " '39," although we had previously made the acquaintance of the Sophomore class on certain occasions when we neglected to wear the insignia of our lowly station. A cooperative social smoker held last year formed our first introduction to the social aspects of college life. Since then we attended the Sophomore lnformal in March and held another smoker in conjunction with the freshmen "coops" in April this year. We look forward to a far greater number of ac- tivities in the future and a closer cooperation with the regular four-year student groups. 71 1 The Cooperative Course has considerable significance for the remainder of the school. First, it involves a more definite tie between the lnstitute and midwestern industry. Many executives have, through this course, been drawn into contact with Armour students and fac- ulty members, so that a greater awareness of the work done at Armour Tech has been created in their minds. Any such spread of the name of Armour has a Good effect upon the standing ifl iHClL1STIY of graduates of all the other classes. The second thing which must be considered by other classes is the place which the Coops are to fill in extracurricular ac- tivities. The publications, sc- cities, clubs, and class organi- zations need to adjust their proqrams so that these men can fit into them without being forced to form a separate clique which does not "fit in."

I never realized how attached I could :ome to a group of buildings standing at 33rd and Federal. Gosh, the ows certainly changed: Tom put on weight, Dick has glasses, and Harry, ll, who Wants to talk about Harry right now? But all in all, the boys are 96 Classes have been arranged and now instead of sleeping until 9:30 AM., sometimes P.M., l have to be in class at 8:30 A.M. Oh Well, such is the life of a Sophomore! The same problem that has confronted every preceding Soph class is up before us now and that is: How are We going to force that herd of Frosh to wear the little green topper with nothing but a handtull ot Soph entorcers? Well, one of our problems is solved: we had a terrific battle and everything is fine, the Sophs have an excess of pants, the Frosh have an excess ot caps. Enough ot this prattleg l have work to do. Gosh, this Sophomore year is tough physics lab and lectures, English and the incomprehensible logic, not to mention that favorite flunk subject, dear old calc. Oh Boy, oh Boy, these physics prelims certainly can bounce. l think l'll present my prelirns to the At the Soph Smoker Hello, Folks! Now What Do I Do?

At least I know who I'm voting for this year. Well, the election wasn't bad, at least half the men I voted for are in and now the class is organized. The Class of '39 is doing quite well with a 3 point man leading the class scholastically and innumerable fellows on the varsity squads of the leading sports. The fellows worked hard during their Freshman year and the upper- classmen have showed us the way to accom- plish things. Ah! the first social of the year-the Class of '39's annual smoker, held at the Lawson Y.M.C.A. The cider tasted good but the dough- nuts seemed to seek the bottom of the swim- ming pool. lohn Schommer's talk on football was entertaining and, as always, educational. Some of the fellows went swimming, while others played cards. The Faculty members, Freud and Tibbals, offered to take any Sopho- mores on in any card game. I understand they made a very good showing. Time marches on is correct for the world, but for a Soph at Armour, time flies on. Three more weeks and the final examinations will be upon us and we will have our chance to show the school that the Soph class can take it. Ah! Second semester! Those exams weren't as bad as they might have been. I passed in everything, must be pretty good after all. We're going to have a dance March 5th. That dance we gave last week was certainly a success in every way. It was held in the main ballroom of the Knickerbocker I-Iotel. Tweet I'Iogan's music made a hit with every person there, and we had over two hundred couples. The glass dance floor caused many "oohs" and "aahs."

H. 100 The class seems to be marching on, physics isn't as tough as we thought and calc seems to have its possibilities. But the long theme is due shortly and it looks like an engineer must learn to be a librarian as well as an engineer. The faculty is very congenial. St. Patrick's day, and the Frosh wore their green caps. A large group of Sophs waited at the "L" Station for the Frosh, in order to cool the ardor of those who were brash enough not to "wear the green". A battle ensued. Now the Dean's Office says the fighting must stop. Oh well, lunior Week is coming. Time is going too fast once again. When l came down this morning l noticed a line out- side the office. Those worried looks could mean only one thing-valentines. For the in- formation of the non-Armour reader, a valen- tine is the pet name applied to those mid- semester flunk notices. The long awaited lunior Week is here. We Sophs made a good showing in the inter-de- partmental games this year. The class rush was yesterday afternoon. We showed the Frosh that experience is a great teacher. I will say, though, that I have a bit oi a sore back. Oh well, such is life. Now that lune is coming, I suppose I'll have to bear down for those finals. There is talk going around that the class is to have a yacht party on one of the larger yachts here in Chicago this summer. Dancing will prevail all evening, with a supper to be served at midnight. Hope I don't get seasick. Gee, l can hardly realize that this college career is half finished. lt is great to look back at all of the good times, and to see all of those friendships grow. Nothing but the hardest of work from now on until graduation. What does the future hold just out of sight? Peterson, C. V. Richardson, A. M.

Forberg, Kubik, Sheehan, Brown, Henriksen, Stenqer lanicek, Merz, O'Conne11, Kubicka, Wagner Swanson, Heike, Shukes, O'Brien Captain Heike, Coach Stenger, Manager Forberg BASKETBALL 1936-1937 SEASON The basketball team pulled thru the '36-'37 season with eight wins and seven losses even though the schedule arranged by manager Forberg was the touqh- est the team has had in many years. ln addition to this, O'Connell was out of four games in the beginning of the season due to ineligibility, and captain Heike, who became ill on the Detroit trip, was unable to play in the last four games of the season. O'Brien was high point rnan for the season, with l22 points, and Merz second with 100. Heike made only 01 tallies, largely due to his illness, but it is doubtful if the total of his points for four years of play will ever be surpassed at Armour. Captain Heike, Merz, and Shukes will graduate, but with the remainder of the team Corning back, and several good freshmen who will be eligible, the prospects are bright for next year. Coach Stenger, who did remarkably Well for his first season at Armour, will have lack O'Connell and Bill O'Brien as :o-captains to work with him next year. ln the first game of the season the Techawks defeated DeKalb 29-25. The visitors had an exceptionally tall squad and kept the ball under their basket 102 most of the time. Armour had it long enough to obtain the deciding points of the game, how- ever. With the Techmen ahead in the second half, DeKalb began a rally, but they were stopped before they could get enough points to go into the lead. Arkansas State was the next Victim of the Armour team. ln the first half the play was cautious and slow, with good guarding by both teams, and at the end of the period the score stood 13-12. ln the second half, the Tech five gradually pulled away from Arkansas, and were not seriously threatened for the rest of the game. Heike took scoring honors with a total of fifteen points, and Morris of Arkansas State was almost as good with fourteen tallies. Armour suffered its first loss of the season when Lake Forest won on its own floor. This was one of the most thrilling games of the season, with the score seesawing back and forth, with neither team ever in the lead by more than four points. Starting the half with the score 19-16 against them, Armour made a de- cided effort to rally, but the best that they could do was to tie the score. ln the last forty- five seconds of play, Henriksen missed a free throw which Lake Forest passed down for a basket, to win 34-31. Beloit handed Armour its next defeat to the tune of 46-34. The Techawks kept the visitors in check fairly well in the first half, which end- ed 21-19, but Beloit added to their lead in the second period, largely thru the efforts of Tamu- lis, who got "hot" and sank seven field goals. Armour could not keep up with this fast pace and Beloit had no difficulty in winning. The annual Chicago game was the next on the schedule and, as usual, was packed with thrills and excitement. The Tech quintet forced the Maroons to play good ball to obtain their winning 33-28 score. As the close of the first half drew near Armour staged a rally, during which O'Brien made three field goals in quick succession. Chicago kept him tied up in the second half, however, so that he only made one basket in this period. Although Chicago was in the lead during the entire second half, they only had a two point lead up to the last minute of play when the Maroons dropped a field goal and a free throw to clinch the game. What Do You Want? Going-Gone! No Runs, One Hit, Four Errors 49010 IFH, Heike Merz O'Brien Wagner O'Connell Shukes 104 ln the return game with Lake Forest, the Techawks easily beat them 37-26. O'Connell's return to the squad helped considerably. The Tech five did not get started during the first half, but when they entered the second period with the score 19-15 in their favor, they began to click and Lake Forest could do nothing to stop them. G'Brien and Henriksen led the scoring for the day with 13 and 11 points respectively. On lanuary 7, the Tech Quintet traveled to Beloit for the return game of this series. The first half was very slow, with neither team able to get their plays going. ln the second half Armour started an attack, led by Heike and O'Brien, that netted seventeen points, which put the Engineers ahead 30-19 at the end of the game. As the roads were covered with ice as a result of a sleet storm, the team was forced to stay in Beloit over night, a pleasant but unexpect- ed experience to the fellows. The still traveling Tech five wandered into Ma- comb, lllinois, for their next game, which was with Western Illinois State Teachers' College. This game was characterized by rough playing and some very poor officiating. O'Connell was called out on fouls in the first half, but proved invaluable in the second half, when he sat on the bench and booed the offi- cial's decisions. Merz, Heike, and Wagner were tak- en out because of four personals in the second half. ln the first few minutes of play, Armour, surprised by the fast break which Macomb used, allowed the score to mount to 16-3 against them. They soon tightened up, however, and brought the score to l9-16 at the half. Macomb kept its lead in the second half, and Armour, weakened by the loss of so many men, was unable to keep up with them. Returning to the Armory, the visiting Wheaton team was defeated 39-30. Not a single point was scored during the first five minutes of play. Finally Wheaton broke the ice with a short field goal and preceeded to get more points slowly, but surely. ln the last five minutes of the half the Techawks forged ahead to make the score 20-14. ln the second half Armour had no difficulty in staying ahead of the visitors. On lanuary 22, Armour defeated Michigan State Normal 31-22. The first half proceeded slowly, with both teams playing good defensive ball, but with Armour sinking more baskets than Ypsilanti to gain 10-7 advantage. ln the second period Armour open- ed up its offensive attack and gained a lead of a few points, but Ypsilanti staged a rally of its own to bring the score to 21-19. This was checked by the Tech five, however, who then ran the score up to 31-22. The first game of the Michigan trip, which began as soon as final exams were over, was the return game with Ypsilanti. The playing proceeded much in the same manner as the previous game with them. The first period had very little exciting play, but, in the second half, Merz, O'Brien, and O'Connel1 led the attack which produced the points for Armour. The Tech five then proceeded to Detroit with a 38-33 victory over Ypsilanti. ln the second game of the trip, that with Detroit University, the Armour squad was defeated 40-31. The Techawks were outclassed completely by the superior Detroit five, who used a fast break and con- tinually shifted the positions of their men. Although Armour tried to stop them by using the zone defense, Detroit proved to be too fast. Captain Heike, who was forced to return to Chicago because of an attack of the flu, was missed greatly. He was out for the rest of the season. North Central defeated Armour 34-33 in the next game, which was a tough one to lose. Neither team was sure of victory until the final whistle blew. The play was fast and scrappy, with the lead going from Brown Sheehan Henriksen Swanson Kubicka Kubik Ianicek 105 one team to the other throughout the entire game. ln the last ten seconds of play, with the score 34-32, Armour sank a free throw from a technical foul, but could not get the ball after this to sink the winning basket. Western lllinois State Teachers' lost their return game here, 39-30. This game, just as the first one with them, was very rough, a total of 37 fouls being called. The scoring in the first half was very close, the period ending at 17-16 in favor of Macomb. Merz made four buckets in the first half, and O'Brien kept up the good work in the second period with four field goals and two free throws. Armour had no diffi- culty with the Leathernecks in the second half as far as their defensive play went, Macomb having to be satisfied with only two field goals, making the rest of thefourteen points on free throws. The following night, the Tech squad traveled to Naperville for the final game of the season, only to be defeated 5l-21, the worst defeat of the season. Every one of the "Red Demons" seemed to be "hot," as they shot long ones from every point on the floor which swished right thru the hoop. The weary Tech squad, which had played an extremely tough and rough game with Macomb the night before, could not keep up the pace and North Central just ran away with them. 1936-37 BASKETBALL SCHEDULE Date Opponent Opponents Score Armour Place Dec 3 De Kalb ........ .... 2 5 ..... .... 2 9 ........

Naperville Coach McGillivray and Captain Ruekberg Winblad, Hawkins, Sampson, Saltzman Slavin, Dodge, Svagdis Manke, Smidl, Ruekberg SWIMMING ln the first meet of the season Arrnour's swimming team trounced North Central to the tune of 44-31. The l60 yard relay opened the meet with a vic- tory for Armour. The Tech team, composed of Smidl, Hawkins, Winblad, and Carlson, made it in 1:24 flat. In the backstroke event, White, of North Central, finished first, but Downing came in a close second. ln the next four events, the 40 yard free style, 100 yard breast, and the 220 yard free style, Carlson, Svagdis, and Havlicek, Won the first, second, and the last two events respectively. Armour took a close second in the fancy divingg Carlson doing a very nice job. North Central attempted a rally, taking the l20 yard medlay relay, but the final score still favored the Armourites. Wilson Iunior College was the next victim of the Armour tanksters. The fact that they took six of the eight firsts is clearly indicated by the final score which gives Armour 49 points to Wilson's 26. Both the V - 120 yard medlay relay and the 160 yard relay were won by the Armour teams. Havlicek won the 220 yard free style and Carlson the 40 yard, as well as taking a second in the fancy diving. The 100 yard backstroke and the 100 yard breast stroke were won by Dodge and Svagdis, respec- tively, Wilson captured firsts in the 100 yard free style and in the fancy diving. The Tech swimmers took their first defeat from George Williams when the Williams team chalked 1 up their eleventh straight victory. The meet ended I with the score 45 to 30 in favor of the opponents The opening event, a 160 yard relay, was wot Manager Stem 1 07 Captain Rue-kbera Smidl Winblad Svagdis Saltzman l 08 by George Williams when their last two men stepped ahead of the Tech men to win. The l00 yard breast stroke turned out better, with Svagdis winning by a big lead. ln the 40 yard free, Stradt- man won for Williams with Winblad and Carlson of Armour coming in behind him. Dodge and Down- ing rated first and third respectively in the back- stroke event. ln the l00 yard free and diving events, Williams nosed out Armourites to gain first and second positions in both events. Collett of George Williams took first place in the 220 yard free style event, with Dodge finishing just ahead of Miller to take second place for Armour. George Williams was in the lead for the beginning of the l20 yard medley, but Svagdis took the lead in the breast stroke, and for the rest of the event Armour had no trouble staying out in front. ln the first meet with Wright, Armour was beaten 44 to 30. Wright took an early lead when they won the first event, the 160 yard relay, and kept it throughout the entire meet. Svagdis turned in his usual win in the l00 yard breast stroke, and Dodge had little trouble in winning the 220 yard free style event. Carlson and Saltzman tied for first place in the fancy diving event. In the next meet the Purdue Boilermakers thor- oughly trounced the Techawk swimming squad. The visitors won firsts in every event but the medlay relay and the l00 yard breast. Svagdis won the latter event by a five yard margin, his time being l:l5.8. It was largely due to his help in the medley relay that the home team finished four yards ahead of Purdue. ln the first event, the l60 yard relay, the Purdue swimmers easily won by fifteen yards. The forty yard free style was more competitive, with Winblad taking third place by inches. Dodge took second place in the l00 yard backstroke in spite of the fact that he was very close to the leader up to the fourth lap. ln the fancy diving, l00 and 220 free style events, the visitors won easily to take first and second places in each event. ln the last event, the medlay relay, the invincible combination of Downing, Svagdis and Winblad won for the Techawks. The final score was Purdue 53, Armour 22. Armour gained its third victory of the season when Loyola was defeated 40 to 35. This was one of the closest meets of the year, and everything hinged on the final event, the l20 yard medley relay. The relay team of Downing, Svagdis and Winblad pro- duced again, however, and clinched the victory for Armour. The Tech tankmen also took firsts in the 160 yard relay, the l00 yard breast stroke, the 220 and the l00 yard free style. On February 27, the Armour swimming team trav- eled down to Greencastle, lndiana, for a meet with De Pauw University. They were defeated by the home team 54 to 29. Part of the reason for this defeat is probably due to the fact that the distances of most of the events were longer than they had been in any of the other meets which had been held this season. The medley relay team won their event as usual, and Svagdis took a first in the 200 Yard breast and Dodge in the 440 yard free style, a long grueling race. North Central fell victim to the Armour swim- mers for the second time in the season, when the Techawks journeyed to Naperville and handed them a 43 to 32 defeat. Armour won both relays, having a substantial margin in each of them. ln the 100 yard backstroke, Armour took only second and third places, with White of North Central caming in first. Downing and Winblad finished first and third respectively in the fifty yard free style for the Techawks, Svagdis won the breast stroke event, as usual. ln the 100 yard free style, North Central eas- ily took first place, but Ruekberg and Smidl did their duty by coming in second and third respec- tively. Dodge and Slavin did a nice job in the 200 yard free style by finishing first and second. Groves, of North Central, executed a perfect back gaynor, which, with other superior dives, gave him the fancy diving event. Wilson evened up its score with the Techawks on a return meet by defeating Armour 40 to 35. Wilson gained a small lead in the first event, the 160 yard relay, which it tenaciously held throughout the entire meet. ln the second event, the 100 yard breast, Svagdis won by a large margin. Manke took a third in this, putting Armour only one point behind their opponents. ln the 40 yard free style, Wilson widened their margin by taking a first and a second. Dodge turned in another of his good performances by tak- ing a first in the l00 yard backstroke and a second in the 220 yard free style. Ruekberg won the 100 yard free style and the medley relay team, Down- ing, Svagdis and Winblad, easily won their event. ln the last three meets on the schedule, the Tech Tanksters suffered three losses. Wright lunior Col- lge beat them badly in their return meet, taking seven out of the eight firsts. Saltzman saved the day for Armour when he took a first in the fancy diving event. Svagdis lost the 100 yard breast stroke by inches, his only defeat in the entire sea- son. The meet with Loyola was a heartbreaker, Armour losing by only two points. Loyola took an early lead, and although Armour's score mounted rapidly due to wins in the last few events, Loyola won 38V2 to 36V2. George Williams drowned Armour 53 to 22 in the last meet of the year. Dodge took the only first in the individual events, by Win- ning the 220 yard free style. The medley relay team, who suffered only three losses in the total of twelve meets, again won their event.

C aptain William Chapin .. .... Manager Coach Weissman The wrestling team, guided by Coach Weissman and Captain Kreml, corn- pleted one of the most successful seasons that it has ever enjoyed. The Armour squad succeeded in overcoming eight of the eleven opposing teams whom they met. A great deal of the credit should go to Captain Kreml and Captain-elect Dunne, both of whom had phenomenal success in winning their matches. They certainly set a goal for the rest of their team mates to shoot at, and must have been a great inspiration to some of the fellows. Kreml, wrestling at 165 lbs., won eight out of ten matches. Iimmy Dunne, in the l35 lb. class, ended up the season with the same number of wins and losses. The remainder of the team was also consistently good, there not being a man on the squad who did not at least break even on his wins and losses. Popper downed six of the eight opponents whom he met in the l55 lb. class. Five out of the eight men who faced the l45 lb. Logullo lost their matches. Tullgren, who weighs in at 175 lbs., succeeded in conquering four of his opponents, but the other three men whom he met proved to be too much for him to handle, Basile, the little l26 pounder, shoved six of his eleven opponents around the mat to gain victories. The two extremes of the team, the heavyweight Mclntyre, and McDaniel, who performs in the l18 lb. class, each won five and lost the same number of matches. This year the squad will lose Captain Kreml, Popper, and Lougullo by graduation. Although these men will be missed greatly next year, it is hoped that enough new men will be found that will be able to fill their places. With the remaining men all coming back, Coach Weissman should have a nucleus to work with and produce a team next year that will at least equal thist year's squad, if not better it. Coach Demonstrates on a Little Guy Kreml Turns the Screws Pretty Boy Gets Mussed Up 110 1 The Tech matmen defeated Wheaton, the Lit- tle Nineteen Champs, by a score of 20V2 to llVz in the second meet of the season. Dunne, Kreml and Mclntyre disposed of their opponents in short order. Illinois State Normal gave Armour its first de- feat of the year to the score of 22-10. Kreml and Dunne pinned their men to give Armour its only score. 1 Armour came back in the next meet by swamps Manager Chapin ing Morton lunior College 29-5. Kreml, Tullgren and Mclntyre pinned their opponents before they had time to warm up. The other points were scored by Basile, Logullo and Popper, who Won by time advantages. DeKalb was host to Armour in a return match, which found Armour on top of a 19-13 score. There was much discussion about the poor and unfair deci- sions of the referee, but not much could be done about it. Both Kreml and Dunne pinned their men, while Tullgren, Popper and Mclntyre scored for Armour by riding their men for time decisions. After journeying out to Wheaton, the Tech matmen were defeated by the score of 31 to 3. Popper was the only man who Won his match, although the others tried their best, they soon found that their opponents were too tough for them. The Tech grapplers scored their first shutout of the season when they piled up a score of 30 points to defeat North Central. McDaniel, Logullo and Tull- gren pinned their opponents. Illinois State Normal visited Armour for the next meet, and defeated Armour for the second time. limmy Dunne downed his opponent, but the rest of the team couldn't master their men. Morton was trounced for the second time with Kreml pinning his man in 1:50, Tullgren pinning his in 1:20p Mclntyre also winning by a pin, in 1:10. Logullo was another who put his opponent's shoulders to the mat. All of the rest of the team disposed of their men by getting a time advantage, except McDaniel, Who lost his match. - The next meet of the season was With Culver. 1n the four bouts that were staged, Basile and Logullo pinned their opponents, Maxant won a time ad- vantage, while Chapin was downed by his opponent.

C oach Paul Moore ....... . . .Captain Charles S. Sramek .... .... M anager Captain Moore Although the boxing team this year is a very promising one, the men on it did not have very much chance to prove their worth, as they were ham- pered by a lack of meets. Most of the men who were on the team the pre- vious year were still in school, and Coach Weissman used them as the nucleus of this year's team. Some additional talent was found when the annual school boxing tournament was held. It is rather difficult to judge the team on their performances, as in one meet they won all their bouts, and in the other only one of the men was able to outpunch his opponent. The showing that was made in the Golden Gloves Tournament is perhaps the best method to determine the merits of the various boxers. This would seem to indicate that Captain Moore and Neal Simeon are the cream of the crop. Both of these men went into the finals of the Golden Gloves but were forced to forfeit their final bouts. They both deserve all the credit that is coming to them, as it certainly is no easy matter to battle one's way through the stiff competi- tion that is met in a tournament of this kind, where all the best amateur boxers of the surrounding area are competing. As has been mentioned before, Coach Weissman started the boxing season by holding the annual school tournament. ln the final bout of the 135 lb. class, Tony Allegretti trounced Fowler. The final battle of the l45 lb. class proved to be one of the most spectacular of the whole tournament. The two con- testants, Bacci and Little, went to the center of the ring swinging with all they had. lt was finally decided that Bacci landed more blows than Little and he was awarded the decision. Manke and Popper had a very close battle for the title in the l55 lb. class, Manke finally outpunching Popper, who kept both fists working until the final gong. Neal Simeon whipped Bob Rehwaldt in the 175 lb. class, throwing a withering barrage of gloves at him. In the heavyweight title bout Frank Palonis outboxed Hock. Armour met the University of Chicago Settlement team in the first regular meet of the season. The Tech glove pushers had things very much their own way in this meet, taking every one of the bouts that was on the card. Alle- gretti, after sparring with his opponent for a while, at last found an opening Popper Takes It on the Chin "Well, l'll Tell You- 112 and landed a knockout blow. Stober also had an easy time of it, knocking out his opponent without much trouble. Besides these two K. Ofs, the team had the rest of the bouts in the win column due to decisions. Captain Moore and Simeon, went the whole route with opponents to receive their bouts on decisions, Calhoun and Winslow won in the same manner. The boxing team did not fare so well when it met Cul- ver, who had an exceptionally good team. Stober was the only man to win his bout, doing so quite conclusively, leaving no doubt in the minds of the spectators or the officials. Although the rest of the men lost their fights, they did so only after a very close battle. Hook was was beaten badly, Roach, the son of the movie mag- the licking. The difference in the condition of the contestants was very noticeable. The Culver boys came out of the ring almost as fresh as they were when they entered it. Most of the Armour men, cn the other hand, were quite visibly tired. A good deal of trouble was encountered at this meet in the unfair decisions of the referee. Although everybody was of the opinion that Allegretti had outpunched his opponent for the greater part of his bout, the referee unfairly gave the decision to his opponent. ln another case, Lindahl was knocked slightly woozy from a hard punch and the official gave that bout to his opponent on a technical knockout in spite of Lindahl's protests that he was all right and could carry on. After the match was over and there was still a good deal of argument going on about the referee, somebody said some very unkind words and Coach Weissman was all set to show those people down at Culver some of his own pugilistic endeavors. It took practically the whole team to hold him down, and thus a certain massacre was averted. Sramek the only one who net, administering For the second year, Armour entered a team in the Golden Gloves tourna- ment. Those who were not entered last year were listed this year in the novice class. Fowler. Lindahl, Stober, Winslow, Popper, Moore and Simeon weighed in at the Stadium, but only the last two emerged victorious. Moore showed some very pretty boxing, knocking out four of his opponents. Simeon kayoed two of his enemies in the bouts that he fought. Both of these men were forced to withdraw from the final bouts of the tournament, however, due to circumstances beyond their control. Moore received a bad cut over his eye in one of the preliminary fights, and could not continue because of it. The versatile Simeon forfeited his bout because his presence was required at a track meet. Both of them did some very pretty fighting in the tournament, however, and deserve a lot of credit for their splendid spirit. The 1937 Boxing Squad Moore Takes His Bout 113 Simeon Lindahl Winslow Collins INTERCLASS SPORTS Nosing out the Sophomores in the final event, the Iunior class captured the interclass track title for the third consecutive year. The meet resembled a dual meet more than it did a quadrangular affair. The Iuniors gathered 52 points, the Sophomores got 49, the Seniors an- nexed ten and the Frosh pulled in three. The Sophomores took six firsts to three for the luniors. However, it was the luniors' strength in seconds and thirds and in the sprints which won the meet for them. The relay was the deciding factor, and the combination of Neuert, Faust, Englethaler, and Dunbar brought this event and with it the meet to the Iuniors. The meet was a see-saw affair from the first. The luniors took the firstpthree places in the 60-yard dash and a first, third, and fourth in the 60-yard low hurdles, to give them an early lead. The mile run saw Finnegan take an easy first. The 60-yard high hurdles brought eight more points for the Sophs as Rothenberg and Ftogge came in in that order. Ryan had to stretch to beat Deuter in the half mile. With the score 49-47 against them it was necessary for the luniors to take the half mile relay. They did this in grand style to bring the final reading to 52-49. The Sophomore class succeeded in running away with all of the opposition in the annual interclass swimming meet. Although there were only two events on the schedule, the swim- ming Sophs collected a grand total of thirteen points. The Senior and Freshmen teams tied for second place with six points apiece. The men who composed the winning team were Vandekieft, Pierson, Parks, Winblad, Svagdis and Dodge. They scored their points in the l00 and 200 yard free style events. The mainstay of the Freshmen was Havlicek, who scored the major portion of the six Frosh points. Because of the fact that the interfraternity swimming meet was being run off at the same time, it was impossible to place more events on the interclass card, as the most of the contestants were competing in both of the meets. This partially accounts for the low scores, although the Sophomores accumulated enough points so as to leave no doubt of their supremacy. , I '. '- 34 ' l The Sophomores--Interclass Swimming Champions 114 INTERFRATERNITY SPORTS The first game of the annual interfraternity basketball tournament brought together the de- fending champions, Phi Pi Phi, and Pi Kappa Phi. lt was an easy victory for Phi Pi, 28 to 8. ln their game with Sigma Alpha Mu, the Phi Kaps' tall fast team came through with a 29-19 win. The Delt team had the least trouble of all the teams to get through the first round. They took Theta XI over the coals 34-9. ln the final round of the tourney Phi Pi defeated Delta Tau Delta for the championship by the score of 22-16. Throughout the first half the lead see-sawed back and forth, and the half ended with a hook shot by Kubicka to tie the score at eight all. Starting where he left off Kubicka opened the second half with a follow-up shot. As in the previous half, the lead see-sawed back and forth with no one taking a decisive lead. As the game was drawing to a close Phi Pi sunk two baskets in short order. With nine seconds to go, Street was fouled but he failed to make the toss and the game ended with Phi Pi the victor 22-16. lt marked the nineteenth consecutive Victory for Phi Pi in this annual tournament. Nine- teen years the champion is a record of which to be proud. The interfraternity swimming meet brought to the Phi Kaps one of the most decisive vic- tories that have ever been turned in in the interfraternity swimming meets. The Phi Kaps had everything their own way, taking firsts in every one of the events, along with three seconds and a third to amass a total of 48 points. Second came the Phi Pis with ten points. The Rho Delts took third with eight points, and the Pi Kaps, fourth with four points. Havlicek turned in an excellent performance for the Phi Kaps with firsts in the 100- and 200-yard crawls. ln the latter event he had practically no competition, coming in forty-four seconds ahead of the field. Maxant, in the breast stroke, and Downing, in the back stroke also took easy firsts for the Phi Kaps. lnterfraternity Swimming Champions-Phi Kappa Sigma 115 THE CHESS CLUB Standing: Erisman, Wilhelm, Anderson, Koehler, Wagner Sitting: Gerber, Rune THE The Armour Eye Armour's Chess Club provides recreation for a fluctuating membership of twenty students. Tourna- ments are in continual progress during the informal noon-hour meetings in the Chapin Hall drafting room, although the club's formal activities are cen- tered in the chess team. Winning four of the five meets held until this time and placing third in the third annual Mid-Western lntercollegiate Chess Tourney held at Cincinnati, April 23, 24, and 25, the team has improved its good record and given Armour a fine reputation. A. Rune, P. Ewing, E. Koehler, N. K. Anderson, and W. Velvel went to Cincinnati with the aid of A.T.S.A. funds. E. Koehler was high point man in the tour- nament. Plans are now being formulated whereby the Armour Chess Club is to sponsor a city-wide chess tournament. The team has acquired several excel- lent players from the freshmen, and only two seniors will be lost by graduation. ARMOUR EYE Starting with practically nothing but their qreat enthusiasm for photography, a small group of stu- dents formed the nucleus for the new club, the Armour Eye, in the early fall of 1936... Since then the group has been enlarged to twenty members, elected officers, drawn up a constitution and erected Club quarters in Chapin Hall. The equipment possessed by the organization al- lows the thorough processing of photographs, in- cluding enlarging, copying, retouching, reducing, and other special treatments. The studio equipment consists of lighting equipment, cameras, and a per- manent background. There have been lectures on photography given by members of the club and faculty. The Armour Eye exhibited some of its photography in a small salon in the Armour Library on Open House Night. All pictures displayed were made from start to fin- ish by members of the Club and should indicate a very good beginning for a permanent organization. ARMOUR TECH RIFLE CLUB Target rifle practice has been carried on at Armour this past year with much enthusiasm under guidance of its officers: P. Peltier, President, W. G. Labes, Manager, R. Z. Miller, Range Officer, and P. Neubauer, Treasurer. Member- ship in the club increased considerably, limitations being necessarily enacted for lack of proper space accommodations. However, of late this difficulty has been eased by the addition of a new range to the previously small quarters. Further accomodations have been provided in the form of a new Model 52 Winchester rifle employing a Vaver Micrometer rear sights. The membership this year has brought into view new and promising mate- rial for future marksmen. The most outstanding of these new men is a fresh- man, Bill Mashinter, who is capable of shooting "possibles" with remarkable frequency in the prone position, and who shoots excellent scores in each of the three other positions of sitting, kneeling, and standing. Much is expected of these new men. The team, made up of riflemen, H. M:Daniels, W. Mashinter, I. Ratio, P. Peltier, G. Morris, E. Kcester, and W. Labes, entered strongly into the inter- scholastic competition, and performed remarkably well, all things considered. Some of the matches were fired with rifle teams of the Universities of Akron, Indiana, Ohio, and lowa, Wheaton College and the Missouri School of Mines. Mindful of the added facilities, the Armour Tech Rifle Club looks forward to a further increase in interest and better markmanship in this typical Ameri- can sport.

During the course of a year an Alumni smoker is given along with some outside affair, such as a roller-skating party or a show. The Armour Tech Campus Club was founded in l927 to provide a social and recreation center for Armour students. ln l93l the club was expanded and now occupies a suite of twelve rooms on the second floor of Chapin Hall, third entrance. Because the club rooms are so convenient to the school there is always someone "on deck" to challenge to a game of ping-pong, billiards, chess, checkers, or just a good old "bull session." Ping-pong and pool tournaments are held each year and the winner in each event receives a handsome club pin. All Armour students are eligible for membership in the Campus Club. The club rooms are open every school day, and all students from Freshman to Senior are invited to come up and inspect the club and meet its members. The club is primarily an organization of social concern, and offers to students a place to gather for discussion, for study, and for that needed relaxation. The spirit of friendship and good feeling which prevails among the members has been one of the main factors in placing the orqanization among the foremost at Armour. The Campus Club offers you that social life in and around school that can't be beat. 118 Basile Bottleson Brown Bystricky Chevalley DeLoor Endert Evanoff Folkrohd Francis Griesbach Hanneman Harwood Kotrba Kubik Kurtz Pcrloms Ouarnstrom Schlax Sojka Stober Tullgren Waite Westerman THE ARMOUR TECH RADIO CLUB OFFICERS R.

The organization now has twelve licensed amateurs in addition to the other unlicensed members. One of the objectives of the club is to prepare the unlicensed members for the license examinations. The present organization came into being in l933, when it was reorganized by a group of incoming freshmen and had its location in the Eta Kappa Nu fraternity rooms. The call letters, WQYW, were obtained from the Federal Communications Commission upon application, and a small station was put on the air, from which many stations throughout the United States and Canada Were contacted. The sponsors of the club are Professors D. P. Moreton and A. W. Sear. The following year the club moved to the suite of rooms at 3329 Federal St., which it now occupies.

S ecretary Prof. Daniel Roesch . . . .... Honorary Chairman The large student participation in the activities of the A.I.T. branch of the A.S.M.E. was one of the outstanding features of the Student Branch sessions. The number of student papers pre- sented before the group was many times larger than in any of the past years. The papers and talks, as given by the Student Speakers, were featured by the originality and personal experi- ence of the speaker with the topic. Most papers were based on experimental Work being done in conjunction with special studies along those lines. The prominence and the eminence of the few outside speakers presented was outstanding in the year's activities, each of the speakers having established himself as an outstanding man in his own field. Use of the "preview" as a factor in making inspection trips more valuable proved very beneficial and informative. This idea of presenting a speaker from the company to be visited apparently struck the concerns as a worth-while undertaking and resulted in very capable and experienced men being sent here as speakers. Diversification of all activities of the so- ciety to provide for a broader and more comprehensive View of the mechanical engineering practice as shown by industries was attempted. One of the most important things accomplished during the year was the arrangement for the co-operative student to become a member of the society. As a result of the added mem- bership, the A.l.T. branch has reached an all-time high in membership. PROGRAM October 2,-General information meeting. October 16-Presentation of Mr. L. P.

Enlarging its scope of membership to include sophomores and juniors ot all departments in addition to seniors, the Armour branch of the Western So- ciety ot Engineers has succeeded in maintaining the purpose of its organization, namely, student Contact with outstanding engineers. In keeping with the aims of the parent society, membership in the student chapter, though composed primarily ot civil engineering students, is open to 122 members of all departments. The first organization of students of civil engi- neering, the Armour Civil Engineering Society, now extinct, dates back to 1906. The first step towards organizing the W.S.E. was made in October 20, 1919, when the officers of the A.C.E.S. were authorized to investigate the advisability of making the society a branch of the W.S.E. A month later on November 17, the new constitution of the Armour Branch of the Western Society of Engineers was signed by the twenty-three charter members. By means of a well balanced program of talks on pertinent engineering top- ics and discussions of problems in the business world, student members of the society were given a better insight to the engineering profession and of problems they would probably face. ln the course of the year speakers were heard on varied subjects covering foundations, steel and bridge construction, concrete road and building construction and water mains. Meetings of a less technical nature were held in addition. On December 4, the evening was devoted to gambling, movies, and a bountiful supply of food. Prizes of a comic nature were awarded at the end of the Monte Carlo Smoker to the high and low money men. PROGRAM October 2-Business meeting: Program for year.

As usual, the meetings during the year were held on the second and last Fridays of each month throughout the entire school yearp-the first of these meetings was called to effect the election of officers, and to make other changes and revisions preparatory to the opening of the scheduled program. The meet- ings for the rest of the term were devoted to talks by men in the fire protection and insurance professions. These talks, by men well qualified to speak on their subjects, proved both interesting and educational. The high-light in the matter of informal meetings in all past years has been the annual "Smoker" at which faculty members, alumni, and students alike cast off the shackles of restraint and office and enjoy themselves thoroughly. This year the event was held on Tuesday night, April 6, l937. As was predicted all in attendance spent. an enjoyable evening at imitation Monte Carlo gambling. After the luckiest"'Fire Protect" at games of chance had been awarded his prize, the pledges to Salamander entertained the gathering with several songs. The long awaited refreshments brought the affair to a successful and satisfying conclusion. PROGRAM May 22-Election of Cfficers. October l6-"Distillery Risks" by Mr. C. N.

E. tool: over the leadership at the beginning ot the school year, September l936. lt was decided at the tirst meeting to tol- low the precedent set by the organization in tormer years. The program consisted ot technical lectures and demonstrations by guest speakers, student papers, and lighter attractions such as a tall smoker and a spring picnic. This program Was ably and successfully completed by the two committees, program and social, appointed at the beginning ot the year. The lectures delivered by the guest speakers varied in nature: it being de- cided that the important phases ot the electrical engineering tield be as ably covered as possible. 126 Edwin C. Minteer, chairman of the committee on membership of the Chicago Section opened the year by speaking on the subject, "The Advantages of a Membership in the American lnstitute of Electrical Engineers." Two student papers were presented during the year. Paul M. Martin, a senior electrical, spoke on October 16, 1936 about "Welding Machines." Ar- thur Goldsmith, also a senior electrical student, presented his lecture on March l2, 1937 about the subject "Direct Current Power Transmission." The fall smoker was held at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house. lt was planned as a Monte Carlo Party and the evening was successfully terminated with refreshments of sandwiches, ice cream, coffee, and doughnuts. Several reels of short comedies and dramas were shown during the evening. The purpose of the student branch is to attempt to bridge the gap between routine and academic work, and some of the problems of later professional life. lt seeks to bring the student into direct contact With the business world and present him with a picture of the structure built upon the theory and funda- mentals Which he absorbs While at Armour.

A ssistant Treasurer The past collegiate year found the Beta Student Chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers operating under the same successful standards which were adopted the year previous. The programs throughout the year were varied, and proved very interesting. At the first meeting, the group was privileged in hearing Mr. A. H. Zimmerman give an interesting illustrated lecture on "The Control cf Atmospheric Pollution in Industry." A new note in meetings was struck when four student members took part in a debate, entitled "Resolved that Chemical Engineers Should Unionize." For the affirmative, P. R. Schultz and F. W. Hack- man were heard. The negative, which was awarded the decision, was ably carried by R. A. Clarke and H. O. Bauermeister. As the first semester passed by, the A.I.Ch.E. was honored in hearing Mr. H. Gerstein speak on "New Methods of Water Treatment"g Mr. C. G. Kustner of the Standard Oil Company on "Technical Sales"g Mr. C. Tolman of the Wilson Packing Company on "The Chemical Engineer in the Packing Industry"g Dr. O. A. Hougen of Armour Institute on "Early Failures in Chemical Engineeringny and Dr. Paul Bishop of Corn Products Refining Company on "Flow Sheets and Unit Processes." For the remainder of the year it was planned to have talks by Mr. Howard D. Grant of the Whiting Corporation, Mr. W. L. Badger of the University of Michigan and Mr. C. S. Miner of the Miner Labora- tcries, and various members of the faculty. The high light of the year's activities was the joint meeting with the Chicago section of the National Organization held under the auspices of the student branch. After a recep- tion in the Faculty Club, a very delightful dinner was served in the Student Union. Following a short business session, the meeting was turned over to the chairman of the stu- dent branch. He introduced seven student speakers whose topics proved extremely inter- esting. Following the talks was the presentation of the Freshman Scholarship Award to S. I. L. Moculeski for having the highest average as a freshman in the Chemical Engineer- ing Department. Allin all the season was a great success and the high standard set in previous years was raised even higher. PROGRAM 2-General Discussions. Mr. O. Zmeskal and Mr. A. I. Allegretti.

Sous-Massier Since l924, the Armour Architects have been organized under the name of the Armour Architectural Society. From the beginning, the purpose was to foster a feeling of good fellowship among its members, to sponsor all social activities, and to present speakers prominent in the Architectural profession. Each succeeding Iunior class is entrusted with the Administration of the So- ciety's affairs and the officers of that class automatically become the officers of the society. ' l3O 3 A .-l This year the Architects had the duty of prying the lid off of Armour's social season. They did more than that, however, they blew it off with the Diana Baccahanale on Friday, November l3 in the beautiful Diana Court of the Michigan Square building. The court was chosen for the scene of this great social event because of its extremely modern design and decoration. In the center there is a beautiful fountain of Diana, from' which a tinkling rhythm issued forth all evening to the accompaniment of the music of the Royal Club Orchestra. The dance was proclaimed by all who attended it, faculty, students and guests alike, as a most successful and highly unique dance. Tradition was broken this year by holding the initiation of the Freshmen during the first semester. Heretofore it had always been held during lunior week. However, the present cf- ficers could see no reason for delaying the in- itiation until the very last of the school year, and after consultation with the faculty it was decided that from this year on a student would be able to be a member of the organization four years instead of his last three. The initiation was run off in a very efficient manner, featured by a parade through the loop and most of Grant Park, much to the embarassment of the Fresh- men. As a grand climax to the initiation, the Annual Architects Banquet was held in the Harding Hotel. The principal speaker of the evening was Shepard Vogelgesang, one of the principal designers of the Century of Progress. 131 View at Life The lunior Formal at the Drake Hotel THE IUNIOR FORMAL The Class of '38 departed from tradition in formal college functions at Armour when they held their formal dance during the Winter season and when the dance was a table dance rather than a dinner dance, as has been the Armour custom. The dance was held in the magnificent Grand Ballroom of the swank Drake Hotel on February l2. Dinners were served to those who desired them. The formally attired couples danced to the scintillating synco- pation of Bill l-logan's "California Cavaliers." The Prom was made addi- tionally enjoyable by the singing of Rita OT-layer, "The California Canary." The warm rhythm of the orchestra and the soft lights, together with the smooth floor acted as a Welcome to dancers as they arrived through the cold, clear night. The presentation of bracelets instead of programs to the girls was a unique feature of the y evening. Stanley E. Healy, Ir., Chairman. Claire W. Dunbar, Eugene Hanson, Charles W.

W 132 W. ..,. 1 ff' MNT, The Sophomore Dance at the Knickerbocker THE SOPHOMORE AND FRESHMAN DANCES The evening of March 5 brought the Armourites to the Sophomore dance, held in the beautiful Oriental Room of the Knickerbocker Hotel. This room, newly redecorated all in white and gold, was a perfect setting for the semi- formal group which gathered there for the evening. The Sophomores Were Wise also in their choice of orchestra, securing the services of Tweet l-logan's Velveteers. The bit of Irish humor which cropped out made the smooth playing and beautiful singing even more enjoyable. This evening was a fitting climax to two very successful social years for the Class of '39. On April 9, the famous Bal Tabarin of the Hotel Sherman became the meeting place of Armour's social set. The men-and girls-of Armour spent a most enjoyable evening as the guests of the Freshman class at their Green Cap Ball. lack Chapman and his Well-known radio band furnished both dance music and entertainment, one of the features of the evening being the clever novelty numbers presented by the band. This dance, initiating the Class of '40 into the social traditions of the school, gave the upperclassmen an oppor- tunity to meet on a social basis these latest Wearers of the green. 133 ARMOUR TECH MUSICAL CLUBS Erickson MUSICAL CLUBS OFFICERS O.

Mmm 134 Continuing their popularity of previous years, the Armour Tech Musical Clubs enjoyed another active and successful year. Membership in the Musical Clubs attained new heights with an enrollment this year of eighty- one students in the Glee Club and thirty-eight in the Orchestra. Under the leadership of Mr. O. Gordon Erickson a variety of engagements were filled, including several out-of-town trips. The high point of the season was the presentation of the second downtown concert at the Goodman Theater. Again sponsored by the Faculty Womens Club, the concert was given before a very large crowd. A feature of this concert was a medley of Gershwin compositions played on the piano by George Danforth. The annual smoker was again replaced by two dances at which the fellows had a gay time. The first dance, which was combined with a short concert, took place at the Evanston Country Club. The second, a concert and tea dance, was held at the Shawnee Coun- try Club in Wilmette. Ample re- freshments were provided at both of these functions. Soloists in the organizations during the year included Marshall Nystrum, tenory Frank Hrachov- sky, tenorg Anthony Allegretti, baritone, Peter Woods, oboe: Bert- ram Heine, accordianp and George Danforth, piano. Under the capable baton of Mr. Erickson, next year promises to bring greater achievements. More out of town trips are planned which will attract more members from the student body. Preparing for concerts is work in itself, but it is also a diversion and a relaxa- tion from the technical studies which are so routine. Students are urgently invited to join the Musical Clubs and become an in- tegral part of this largest activity The Goodman Theater Concert . . . Backstage and from the Audience group at Armour. . . .

THE ARMOUR PLAYERS AND PLAYERS GUILD During the current year, the Armour Players Guild chose three plays for production, and under the direction of Professor Fulghum, the Players presented the two one-act plays, "Wait- ing for Lefty" and "The Quarry." They also produced, in the Chicago Women's Club Theatre, the prize winning play of S. Anderson, "Winterset." The presenting of "Winterset" in a downtown Chicago theatre inaugurated a new movement in the Players' group. This year also saw the introduction of the Guild, an organi- zation conceived as the administrative body of the Players. The Guild is composed of members of the Armour Players who have shown an interest in the activities of the group to such an extent that they have participated in a definite number of plays, either as actors or as members of the stage crew. The powers of the Guild are to select all plays for the Armour Players and take charge of all other business in connection with the group. The Guild has its own meeting rooms, which were designed for them in the modern trend. ln this room all functions of the Guild are held. On "Open House Night" last year the Players strayed into the field of marionettes. lt was with the approval, we hope, of last year's visitors that the Players will be persuaded to repeat the hazardous adventure.

Healy lr President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Social Chairman THE IUNIOR CLASS "Today I am a man" was probably the thought of every Iunior as he entered the Institute for the third time last September. Two whole years of hard work and play had been successfully completed and the newly crowned upperclassman was joyfully returning to claim their rights and privileges as members of the cream of school society. Now he could ride the elevator, call Charlie by his first name, acquire a locker in Main, talk matters over with Stan and Iessie on an equal basis, take the switchboard operator over to the Student's Union for coffee and rolls, and look upon Sophs and Frosh with esteemed dignity. At last he was released from the endless scraps and de- pantsings that occured each day between the underclassmen, and could now sit upon the sidelines and egg the stooges on for his edification, joy, and gratification. After becoming accustomed to the new subjects and schedules, the Class of '38 settled down to the job of keeping up their record and high standards in schoolwork, social life, athletics, and extracurricular activities. In the com- petition for the inter-class baseball crown, the Seniors were defeated easily and overwhelmingly by a far superior Iunior aggregation of stars. Next the win- ners of the Freshman-Sophomore tilt were easily taken to town by the flashy and colorful ball handling of the third year men. This concluded the baseball tournament and for the second year in a row the crown rested with the class of '38. ln the inter-class track meet, a bitterly fought contest of fleetness and stamina, the lunior class again proved i's superiority over the rest of the school. The events were ruthlessly battled over, one by one, and as the ancient Grecian sport approached the final stages it was evident that the Iuniors had to take the final event, the relay, in order to come out on top. With bated breath and hearts in their mouths, the spectators leaned for- ward excitedly to witness this great climax-They're off-amid the roars and shouts of acclaim of the tense Techawks. After the dust had cleared away and the tumult had subsided, it was seen that the luniors had won the relay, taken the meet and retained the inter-class track title for the third successive year. As a result of their smashing victories in the last three years and the fact that all of the men will be able to compete next year, it is almost certain that they will repeat again and, for the first time in Armour's history will have maintained an unbroken string of victories throughout their four years. In the most exciting intra-mural touch football contest of the year, the Iunior Mechs lost to the Senior Schmeirs in the finals, played before a record crowd of interested and enthusiastic students. However, quite decisive defeats were l39 Adeison Baker Braun Close Downing, I-I. Falk Anderson, I. W.

Aside from the athletic prowess of the thir'ty-eighters, their talents ran to other channels as can be at- tested by the large number engaged in the musical clubs, publications, dramatics, Rifle Club and Archery Club. Scholastically, the Iuniors al- so upheld their end as can be seen from the number initiated into the various departmental honorary fra- ternities. As in the past the luniors ex- hibited their courage to defy tradi- tion and former customs by holding the annual Iunior Formal in mid- winter instead of spring, during lun- ior Week, as it had been in the past. The setting of this romantic and ul- tra-colorful Prom was the Grand Ballroom of the Drake. Bill Hogan and his Californians fantastically carried the enthralled dancers away to lands of soft breezes, swaying palms and moonlit waters with de- lightful arrangements of the latest melodies. One inauguration of this affair was the presentation of small golden bracelets with the numerals of the Iunior class inscribed on them, to the starry eyed beauties which clung to the arms of their engineer escorts. Another feature of the dance, which served to lend a touch of com- panionship and mingling to the crowd, was the Grand March, which took place at the stroke of twelve, being led by class officers and fra- ternity presidents, each taking a Wing, respectively. As the gay and ecstatically happy' throng left the ballroom, it was observed that the Formal was a huge success. Hallihan Hammond Hannernan Hanson Healy Hazleton, I.

Among the many innovations of the junior Week of l937 was the dit- ficult and enthralling task for the seniors and juniors of capturing prizes placed atop a pitch-coated pole. As usual, the Freshman-Soph- omore Rush climaxed the daytime activities of this Week of Weeks. The grand finale to this Week was the junior Informal held at a spacious country club which was necessary to accomodate the capacity crowd attending the affair. With happy memories We look back upon our underclassmanship and the first year of our upperclass- mcmship and realize that in a very short time Armour, itself, will be a memory and We shall be revered alumni of this lnstitute, our Alma Mater. Looking forward, We recog- nize the fact that We have only a year to take advantage of all that is offered us and to remedy any mis- takes which We have made in any of our undertakings of the last three years. After the completion of our senior years We will face the cold, bleak fortunes of the World with only the knowledge that We have gained in four short years at Armour to guide our faltering footsteps as We wend our Way through the avenues of success in our professions.

Deuter Bodnar Ryan Goes Dunbar Ratto McDonald Dannis Finnegan Alleqretti Parker Benz Braun Dixon Levy Koehler Bejcek Faust Neal Savidis Concolino Neuert The outdoor track season for the Techawk squad brought high scorers in the persons of Neal, Dunbar, McDonald, Concolino, Finnegan, and Faust. Dunbar and Neal tied for individual honors in any one meet with eleven points each. The records showed one Win out of five meets at the close of the outdoor season. The losses may be directly attributed to a weakness in the field events, which in turn was understandable since there was no one to take johnny Roberts place in these events. Roberts was graduated at the close of the l935 season. The first meet of the season took place on April l8, at Elmhurst. It was an Elmhurst win, 78V2-52V2. Dunbar carried off high scoring honors with firsts in the 100-and-220-yard dashes, and a third in the 220-yard low hurdles. Neal followed Dunbar's lead with firsts in the quarter mile and in the broad jump. The mile run brought Finnegan of Armour, and Camerer of Elmhurst together for a close contest. The decision went to Carnerer by the smallest of margins. A fast half mile run brought Ryan home in second place. Vandekieft starred for Elmhurst with a first in shot put, a second in the discus, and a tie with Simeon for second in the high jump. Elmhurst succeeded in sweeping the dis- cus throw, the shot put, and the two rnile run. On May 6, the squad came through with a win over South Side junior Col- lege. The final score read Armour 69 and South Side 62, and it marked the third successive time this season that the Techawk traclcsters turned in a victory over South Side. Neal led the team with firsts in the quarter mile and the broad jump and a third in the lOU-yard dash. Dunbar took firsts in the lO0- yard and 220-yard dashes. A clean sweep of the 100-yard dash, with Dunbar, Neuert, and Neal doing the sweeping, a first and third in the quarter mile, and 145 OUTDOOR TRACK SEASON 1936 Captain Soncolino Neal Fleiq McDonald Bejcek Simeon 146 a first and second in the 220-yard dash showed the supremacy of the Armour squad in the sprints. Cap- tain Concolino and Dixon tied for first in the pole vault. The meet as a whole was a see-saw affair in which neither team was able to build up a substan- tial lead. With only the relay remaining to be run the score showed Armour leading 64-52. lt was indeed a tense moment until the winning relay com- bination of McDonald, Neuert, Dunbar, and Neal brought the meet to a climax with the final total 69-B2 in favor of Armour. The Bradley meet, on their home grounds, saw Armour suffer her second defeat. The score was 82V2-43V2. Once again that weakness in the field events was a handicap which could not be overcome even by the exemplary performances of Finnegan, Neal, McDonald, and Simeon. Finnegan did his share of the point getting by taking a second in the mile and third in the half mile. McDonald accounted for seconds in the 220-yard dash, the quarter mile, and the broad jump. After a third in the shot put Simeon came through to win the high jump. Neal put on a powerful sprint in the quarter mile to annex first place just ahead of his teammate McDonald. Neal followed this later with a third in the broad jump. The bombardment which sank Armour took the form of a clean sweep of the 220-yard low hurdles and the discus throw by Bradley. The shot put and the javelin throw resulted in two firsts and two sec- onds for Bradley. Bare turned in an outstanding per- formance for the victors with firsts in the shot put and the javelin throw, and seconds in the high jump and the discus throw. Fleig strongly contested the right of Mason to finish first in the high hurdles but was nosed out by inches. Captain Concolino was tied by his opponent in the pole vault while Dixon came through to take a third in the same event. The Elmhurst lnvitational Meet was the scene of a good showing by two members of the Armour track team. This meet is an annual affair which brings together the strongest of the mid-west college com- petition. Each college receiving an invitation scnds the outstanding performers of its team to represent the school in this gathering of stars. As Armour rep- resentatives Dunbar and Neal came through in grand style. Dunbar brought in a third in the 220-yard dash, and Neal took a fourth in the quarter mile and a fifth in the broad jump. A meet with Wheaton brought more sorrow for the team. It was an 83-48 loss. The mile run saw McShane of Wheaton put on a final spurt to beat Finne- gan. However, later on in the meet Finnegan had his turn when he led Mc- Shane to the tape in the half mile run. The 100-yard dash brought a surprise to the Armour ranks. lt was found out that besides being an able pole vaulter, Captain Concolino was also a sprinter. ln this dash event Concolino came in on the heels of his teammate Dunbar. Neal and Dunbar followed the example set by Finnegan and each brought in eight points. Dunbar's points were gained in the lO0- and 220-yard dashes. Neal took his in the quarter mile and the broad jump. ln the high jump Bejcek tied Malmquist of Wheaton for sec- ond place, and in the pole vault Concolino and Dixon tied for second. ln both events Romein of Wheaton took first place. Goes and Simeon brought some added strength to the field events by taking seconds in the discus throw and the shot put respectively. However, a clean sweep of the two mile run and the javelin throw clinched matters for Wheaton. The last meet of the season was a heart-breaker with Loyola. The Techawks were nosed out 68-63. Outstanding performances were turned in by Faust, who took firsts in the mile and the two mile, and by Dunbar, who took firsts in the lOU and 220-yard dashes. Captain Concolino went up in the air for a first in the pole vault and Neal accounted for a first in the broad jump and a second in the quarter mile. After a close battle Armour took the relay to make the score 63-59 in favor of Loyola. A first and a second in the remaining event, the discus, were necessary to win the meet. 'l'his opportunity failed to materia- lize after Murray of Loyola beat Simeon's toss by a few inches.

The new marks were set up by Siebert in the pole vault, and North Central in the one mile college relay. The outstanding team of the night was the group from Wayne University, of Detroit, Michigan. They amassed a total of 49 points to almost double the score of their nearest competitor, North Central College, who took enough places to get 25 points. Wayne had four men entered in the finals of the 70- yard dash, and they took first , second and third places in this event. Harka- way, added to the total when he took a second in the college 440-yard run. McElroy came in third in the 70-yard low hurdles, Eizak took a fourth in the shot put and Wellwood a second in the high jump. The Wayne relay teams did their bit by turning in a victory in the sprint medlay and a second in the one mile relay. The most outstanding man on the Wayne team, the man upon whom thous- ands of eyes were riveted for the greater part of the evening, the athlete upon whom all the newspaper cameramen had their lenses trained, the performer which the reporters wrote of as the champion of the evening, was Allan Tom- lich. He won the 70-yard dash, and the 70-yard high and low hurdles, equaling the record set by Sandbach, of Purdue, in the latter. In addition to this he ran on the victorious sprint medley relay team. This was the first year that team scores were kept, and three handsome tro- phies were given to the top three college teams. Wayne, naturally was given the first place cup, North Central received the second place award, and Grinell College took third place honors. Although North Central took only second place in total scoring, they were the only ones to break any of the previous records. The college one mile relay time was lowered by l.8 seconds, when the North Central team of Teichman, Rikli, Kayes, and Clark, nosed out Wayne by only a few inches at the finish line, The new time for this event is now 3:26. Siebert was the other record breaker on the Naperville tearn. He set a new pole vault record of l3 feet 8Wa inches, as compared with last years record of 148 4, ' j f I, 1 Wf Sr Siebert Breaking the Pole Vault Record-The Man Behind It All-The Crowd Wayne, the wir1ners4Wellwood, Second Place High lump-Bechel, First Placee -College One Mile Relay Baton Change l3 feet 634 inches set by Haller, of Wisconsin last year. On his record break- ing leap, Siebert scared over the bar with at least four inches to spare, but missed on his next attempt with the bar set at l4 feet. l-laller and Padaway, both of Wisconsin took second and third in this event. Armour Tech could not do much against the stiff competition which is inet with in a meet of this type. ln the two mile relay, Dannis took too fast a start, ganging up on the other runners, and had a bad spill, which cost many sec- onds. Armour fared a little better in the college sprint medlay, mostly due ta Finnegan's efforts. lmmediately after receiving the baton on the final half mile he passed into second position. He held this for 800-yards when he slowly was forced to relinquish it and ended the heat in third place. The good times from the first heat eliminated Armour for any points in the final scoring of this event, however. The University division was much less colorful than the college due to fewer entrants, as the Butler Relays attracted most of the schools that lay to the south of us. Chicago, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Illinois, and Kansas State were the principal contestants in this division. Many of the crowd were disappointed in the time which Charles Penske, famous Wisconsin miler turned in for his event. Lack of suitable competition was probably the cause of the 4:29.8, Winning time, which was much slower than the 4:l2 which he ran a couple of weeks before. Penske ran the whole 149 First Place in the Shot Put'-A Curve in the 440 Yard Run-Finnegan Finishing the Sprint Medley-the University l00 Yard Dash.

As he reached the finish line he looked over his should- er to determine the positions of his opponents, and Cook passed him up to win the race. A strong relay team entered by Kansas State won the two mile relay, but as neither Chicago nor Wisconsin pressed them, they did not clip off the l.8 seconds that would have set a new mark. The University Sprint Medley, a new event, was won by the University of illinois team composed of Speer, Orlovich, Ashley and Gaines. Catlin, Kaumanns, Ensley, and Keitel won the University one mile relay for Northwestern, Kansas State coming in second and illinois third. In the individual events, Halcrow of Chicago won the 440-yard run, Kellner, of Wisconsin, the 70-yard high and low hurdles, Greer, of Michigan, the 70-yard dash and Mehl, of Wisconsin the 880-yard run. The shot put and high jump were open, no discrimination being made between University and College men. The Universities clearly showed their superiority in the former, Wisconsin taking first and Kansas State and Northwestern second and third places. In the high jump it was a different story, however, with Bechel, of De- Kalb Teachers', repeating his performance of last year by taking a first. Well- wood of Wayne went over the bar for a second, and Wisconsin Univers and Michigan Normal took third and fourth. ity, 150 Coach Norman Root l Manager Richard Winkler The indoor track season opened rather inauspiciously on February 18 with a 67-28 loss to North Central. lt was a well balanced Cardinal squad which downed the Techawks. They took the lead from the very first event and held it all through the meet. The mile, which was the first event on the card, was won by Teichman, of North Central. He was followed closely by Faust, who captured second place. The next event, the high jump, was the scene of the only good showing rnade by the Armour squad. ln this, Simeon took first place wih a leap of five feet eight inches, which was just high enough to beat his team mate Vandekieft, who took second place. Soon afterwards Vandekieft lost another event by a matter of inches when Anderson, of North Central, heaved the shot just a fraction of a foot beyond Vandekieft's best toss. Siebert, who was later to make such a splendid showing in the Armour Tech Relays, had things entirely his own way as he won the pole vault with a leap of thirteen feet. Dixon, Armour's star pole vaulter, took a second in the event. Shortly before he won the pole vault, Siebert took a first place in the 70 yard low hurdles, followed by Gillette, of North Central and Dunbar. Keyes, of North Central, sped around the track twice to tie his teammate Clark in the quarter mile, Ryan of Armour taking third place in the event. Keyes also won the half mile run, finishing a stride in front of Finnegan, who came up very fast in the finish. North Central got another first place when Rikli won the 60 yard dash, but Dunbar and Bingham added to the Tech column when they scored second and third respectively. The Cardinal two milers found little opposition in their event, taking all three places. March 4 saw the track squad even up the win and loss column with a 66-29 win over Loyola. lt was an Armour day from the first event down to the closing relay.. The Tech tracksters captured firsts in every event but the high jump. Captain Faust showed the squad the correct team spirit by taking first place in the mile, which was the first event on the card. He was followed by the greencapper Opila, who took second place. The 60 yard dash brought nine more points for Armour when the Tech entries took all three places. Bingham beat Dunbar to the tape only by a few inches, and Neuert, who l5l 1937 TRACK SEASON W Assistant Manager Landrith Parker Captain Faust Dunbar Finnegan Bcdnar Dixon Deuter Braun Neuert 152 finished third was not very far behind. Dunbar tied for a first in the low hurdles, with Nurnberger of Loyola: Rothenberg, of Armour, taking third. The Techawks obtained two more places in the two mile run in the persons of Faust and Dannis. Walsh, of Loyola, was the third man. Ryan had a fairly easy time of it in the quarter mile run, beating Lyons of the visitors and Widell to the tape. Finnegan and Deuter took first and second respectively in the half mile. Vanderkieft heaved the shot 38 feet 7V2 inches to get an easy first place. Simeon took a third in this event as well as a third in the high jump. Dixon won the pole vault with a nice leap of eleven feet. The running of the relay was a thrilling climax to the already perfect day. Loyola started in the lead, and gained still more on the bad pass which Neuert, the starting man for Armour, made to Rothenberg. Loyola stayed in the lead until the end of the third lap when Bingham made a beautiful pass to the anchor man, Dunbar. Dunbar gained fully six feet on his opponent and held this lead all the way to the finish line. The Techawk tracksters brought the indoor sea- son to a close with a 51-44 win over Elmhurst. This was without a doubt the closest meet of the season, neither team being sure of victory until the final event was over. Camerer, of Elmhurst, started things off by winning the mile run. Faust, who put on a good sprint at the finish, could not catch him and had to be content with a second place in this event. ln the quarter mile, Ryan, who had the pole posi- tion, got off to a good start and kept a substantial lead all theway around the track until he went dovsm the last straightaway. Here Finnegan put forth all of his efforts into a sprint that brought him to the tape at exactly the same time as his team mate. Later in the meet Finnegan again proved his worth by taking first place in the half mile run. Rothen- berg, who runs the hurdle races for Armour, also had a good day of it. He skimmed over the high hurdles in the prescribed fashion and brought home a first place in the 70 yard low hurdles he had to be content with finishing third, however, as his colleague, Dunbar, took first place in this event. Dunbar also got a second in the 60 yard dash, Bing- ham beating him to the tape only by a few inches. This finish was very reminiscent of the previous meet, when exactly the same thing happened. Simeon soared over the bar with more alacrity than the rest of his opponents to take a first in this event. His winning leap was five feet ten inches. Vande- kieft took a third in this event, as well as a second in the shot put. With only one more event remaining, the one half mile relay, the score stood 46-44 in favor of Armour. Knowing that victory could come only through their efforts, the relay team, composed of Dunbar, Bingham, Neuert, and Rothenberg, gave all that they had and led the Elmhurst team to the tape, thereby insuring an Armour victory. ln the first outdoor meet of the season Armour again defeated Elmhurst, this time by a score of 71V2 to 58V2. The meet was held on the Elmhurst track. Dunbar was high man for the day, taking four first places to bring his total to twenty points. Elmhurst led off by winning the mile run, which was the opening event. Captain Faust finished second in this, being unable to keep up with Camerer, of Elm- hurst, who set a withering pace. The next event, which was the 440 yard run, saw Ryan step out and set his own pace to win easily. Close behind him was Finnegan, who with one of his speedy finishes, nosed out Nothrott, of Elmhurst. ln the 100 yard dash Dunbar and Bingham took first and second respec- tively. Rothenberg, who was not pressed, had an easy time winning the 120 yard high hurdles. The finish of the half mile run was the closest and the most thrilling event of the entire meet. Camerer, of Elmhurst, and Finnegan were only inches apart at the finish line. After considerable discussion first place was given to Camerer. Dunbar took another first in the 220 yard dash, Bingham trailing him to come in third. The 220 yard low hurdles was also taken by Dunbar, with Rothenberg finishing second. Vandekieft starred for Armour in the field events, taking first in the discus throw, second in the shot put, and tying for first with Simeon in the high jump. Stehman won the javelin throw with his final heave of 147 feet 10 inches, and Dunbar nosed out Loew by a half an inch to win the broad jump.

Armour opened the baseball season on April ll, by losing to Chicago, 8-3. The Tech nine went into the lead in the second inning, but dropped behind when Chicago made three runs in their half of the third. In the fifth, after Delve had replaced Kruse on the mound, the Maroons scored two more runs. Harlow was hit by a pitched ball and as a result reached first base, after which White hit a home run. Armour made two more runs in the later innings, but was unable to stage a successful rally. Northwestern was the next team to down the Tech squad. Rather poor base- ball was played by both teams, the high spot of the day being the pretty relief work by Kruse, who held the Wildcats to only one hit in the last four innings of the game. The damage was already done by this time, as Northwestern had garnered 12 runs to Armour's 2 in the first five innings. The Techawks got their third run through the efforts of Logullo, Ianas, and Russek, each of them getting a single. The latter part of the game was uneventful as far as scoring went, the final score remaining l2-3. In their return game with Chicago, the Tech nine was again defeated, this time by the score of 544. In the first inning four successive walks by Amundsen advanced Logullo over the plate, and a hit by Dunne brought in another run. Chicago tied up the score in the fourth, and in the sixth got another run which 154 Wt- BASEBALL SEASON Strike Three' put them into the lead. ln the eighth Armour received three walks, but was able to score only one run. The Maroons obtained their winning run in the ninth inning. Northwestern trounced Armour 9-l, in the return game, which was the first home game of the season for the Tech nine. Wagner scored the only Armour run, coming in on Logullo's hit in the first inning. Northwestern scored three in the third and two in the fourth. Armour lost the next game on the schedule 20-l l, when North Central went on on a scoring spree. lt was a long and drawn out game, lasting three and a half hours. The visitors went into an early lead, scoring two in the first on a single and a homer, and two in the second on two hits and an error. Armour got one run in the second, and then tied the score in the fourth, when Adamec and Kruse doubled over the right field fence, and Dunne and Wagner singled. In the next inning North Central got six runs on five hits and an error. Although Armour got seven runs in the later innings, North Central was more adept at shoving the runners around the bases and piled up their grand total of twenty runs. The Techawks got their first win of the season at the expense of Elmhurst. Dollenmaier gave a pretty exhibition of pitching, when in the first three innings he fanned five men. Armour scored their first run in the first inning on a walk and two hits. The fifth was Armour's big inning. Dollenmaier started it off with a triple, and scored on an error. Seidenberg hit safely and then Adamec tripled scoring two more runs. Dunne doubled, and then scored on a long fly. The Tech Nine had an easy time of it with Wheaton, shutting them out, 9-O. The pitching for both of the teams was excellent, Kruse strikinq out nine men, and Iohnson of Wheaton fanning six. Kruse managed to keep the opponents' hits scattered and was never in much danger. Wag- ner led the batting attack for Armour, getting three safe hits. Dunne, Adamec, and Russek did their bit also with two hits apiece. Armour next split a double header with Lake Forest, winning the first game 6-2, and dropping the second 6-O. Dollenmaier pitched his best game of the season to hold Lake Forest to only three hits in the first game. A walk, an error, and two hits in the first inning gave Lake Forest their only runs. ln the second inning Russek knocked out a home run, Seidenberg walked, and scored the tying run when Bartusek poled out a double.

This was the second loss to Wheaton that Armour has had in l2 Years. For the second game in a row an early four run lead was blown to lose the game. Delve performed nicely on the mound, striking out twelve of the men that faced him. Armour got i3 hits to Wheaton's 9, but they were nullified by wild base running. Time after time an Armour man would be put out in trying to stretch a hit, or by being caught off base. In the final game of the season the visiting Ypsilanti team beat Armour 7f5. Armour drove across three runs in the first inning, as a result of a walk and hits by Wagner, Kruse, Adamec and Se-idenberg. In the third inning Michigan Normal went out ahead, when they filled the bases, and one run scored on a bad throw to the plate, while two singles drove in four more runs. Armour got another run in their half of the inning to make the score 5-4. In the next four innings Ypsilanti made 2 more runs. Three double plays nipped scoring sprees, while Adamec's splendid per- formance in the outfield prevented several other runs. Dunne got a single in the ninth inning, and went to second on a strilceout, but Ypsilanti made an error in throwing to second, another at third so Iimmy skipped across the plate with the unearned run. 1936 BASEBALL SCHEDULE Opponents' Opponents Score Armour Chicago ..... . . 8 3 Northwestern . . . . l2 3 Chicago ..... . . 5 4 Northwestern . . . . 9 l North Central .. 20 ll Elmhurst ..... . . 3 ll Wheaton ..., . .

The squad began their practice on the indoor courts of the lO8th Engineers Armory, moving to Armour's outdoor courts as soon as the weather permitted. It took the team a while to get started, as can be seen from the fact that they lost their first three meets. A possible explanation of this is the fact that the change from the fast, hard- wood floor of the Armory, to the slower clay courts made quite a difference in the play. Then too, these first three meets were all in the same week. Most of the early meets of the season were held away from home to allow ample time to thoroughly recondition the Armour courts. The mainstays of the singles play for the 1936 season were Swanson, who played first position, and Natinchek, who played number two man. A little experimenting was necessary during the first part of the season before some successful doubles combinations could be found, but finally Swanson and Quandee were paired off, and Natinchek and Boehme were teamed for the other doubles pair. These combinations were very successful, losing very few of their matches. The 1937 tennis team should be very successful, as Coach Colvert has re- turning for service the two top men of last year's team, Swanson and Natin- chek, as well as Kubick and others. With the assistance of some new men which he ought to uncover in the annual spring tennis tournament, he ought to build up a championship team. The tennis team journeyed to Naperville, for the opening match of the sea- son. The change from the hardwood floors of the Armory to the slower clay courts was evident as North Central proceeded to take six of the seven matches. George Quandee, number five man for Armour, beat Eckstrom 6-2, 6-3 for Armour's only win of the day. Capt. Arnold lost to McCollum, 6-l, 6-O. Natinchek, after losing his first set 6-2, won the second 6-3, and then lost a heartbreaking third set 8-lO. Herz lost to Wright 6-O, 6-2. North Central won both of the doubles matches, Natinchek and Herz losing 6-O, 6-2, and Arnold 158 and Boehme dropping theirs by the same score. The second defeat of the season was suffered at the hands of Indiana State Teachers. Swan- son was the only Armour man to win, taking both sets at 6-2. In the doubles Swanson and Quan- dee lost to Sturgeon and Burg 3-6, 8-lO. Natin- chek lost his match 6-8, 4-6 after putting up a tough battle in the first set. The final score of the match was Indiana State Teachers 6 Armour I. I The Tech racket swingers got their first victory when they beat George Williams 4-3 on the University of Chicago courts. Swanson, after losing his first set to Criste, pulled himself together and finally won the match, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Natinchek won a grueling match from Eiswald, 6-4, ll-l3, IU-8. Arnold, after losing his first set 3-6, won the second two, IO-8 and 6-2. Boehme and Herz both lost their singles matches. In the doubles Swanson and Boehme won, and Natinchek and Arnold lost their matches. Manager I-larnf in Loyola was the next victim of the Armour tennis team. Swanson took a while to warm up and lost the first set 3-6, but won the remaining two, 6-2, 6-4. Armour and Loyola each won a doubles match. The final score of the meet was Armour 4 Loyola 3. Armour tied with Wheaton at three matches apiece when the two teams met. Armour lost three of the singles matches, and then went on to make a clean sweep of the doubles, with Swanson and Quandee beating Fischer and Dobbin, and Natinchek and Boehme defeating the two Moffet brothers. Wright Iunior College won their meet with Armour, six matches to one. Swanson won the only Armour match, defeating Brandt in two 6-3 sets. A few days later Loyola administered a 5-2 licking to the Armour team. Natinchek won his singles match 6-4, 6-3, and Swanson and Quandee after losing the first set of their doubles match 4-6, won the next two 6-l and 6-4. On May 23 Armour beat North Central 4-3. Natinchek played his usual stellar game in the singles match and won it without much difficulty. Swan- son and Quandee again proved unbeatable in the doubles matches, playing one of their nicest games of the season. In their return match with Wheaton, the Tech racketeers beat them to the tune of four matches to two. Swanson and Natinchek had a bad day, both of them losing their singles matches. Captain Arnold and Quandee both were forced to battle hard to win their singles matches, but finally turned the trick. The doubles teams of Swanson and Quandee, and Natinchek and Boehme were again victorious. George Williams lost to Armour for the second time in the season. The day finished with Armour the winner of five of the seven matches played. Swanson had no trouble at all in downing his opponent 6-2, 6-3. Natinchek and Boehme both won their matches in three sets. Quandee and Kubick lost their singles matches. The almost invincible doubles combinations of Swan- son and Natinchek, and Quandee and Boehme again won their matches in two straight sets. l59 Herz Wagner Boehme Charlton E U .' t. -I -R . . - r f- 1- --lcv:-., t ' 'li CUZ-U-c-1 Shi a I-laase Davidson GOLFERS Coach Bibb With the lQ36 team containing four veterans from the previous year pros- pects were bright for the coming season. The members of the team, under the tutelage of Coach Bibb, lived up to all expectations, conquering most of their opponents. Captain Richards, Shanahan, Skuza, and Davidson were responsible for the greater share of the wins, and to them Coach Bibb gives a great deal of the credit for instilling a fine team spirit which led to a harmony in their play that the opposing teams found hard to conquer. With Shanahan and Skuza coming back for the l937 season, Coach Bibb should have a nucleus around which he can build another first rate golf team. In the first scheduled match of the 1936 season, Armour was defeated badly by the Northwestern golf team. The Wildcats who had a very superior team proved to be superior all the Way round, taking every one of the matches played, and piling up a score of twenty-one points. Armour was left holding the bag without a single point. The most brilliant playing of the day was done by a Northwestern sophomore. This Wildcat on a rampage turned in a subpar score of 35-34-69. His round included five birdies, and he finished in a blaze of glory by sinking a sixty foot approach shot for a birdie three on the eighteenth hole. ln their next meet the Tech golfers beat Beloit by a score of nine to three. The match was played on the Southmoor course. The Armour squad found their opponents to be quite easy to beat, winning the doubles matches and a greater part of the singles. Low scores for the day were turned in by David- son, Shanahan, Skuza, and Captain Richards. On April 30, the Tech golfers journeyed to the Evergreen course to play the South Side lunior College. They succeeded in beating them by one point, the final score being Armour QV2 and South Side lunior College BV2. The Techawks had little difficulty in Winning the doubles matches which were played off in the morning. The score at noontime was Armour 2V2 points to South Side's V2 point. The rest of the points were made in the afternoon, 160 Mqnggef DQ 115 T9l9-CI+l9lE' OH the T69 when the singles matches were played off. Schnabel of the South Siders played off the most phenomenal golf of the day, turning in the low score of 72. He shot several birdies and par on two of the holes. The golf team had their next meet with Loyola University. The matches were played on the Loyola home course at the North Shore Country Club. Although the final score was 16 to 2 in favor of Loyola, this is hardly indicative of the quality of golf which Armour plays, as only three of the Tech squad were able to attend. Davidson, of Armour, defeated Lynch 2 to l in his singles match for Armour's only points of the day. v On the nineteenth of May a thirty-six hole match was played with Wright Iunior College on the Big Oaks Course. At the end of the day the score stood Wright llk, Armour 6Vz. Only one of the Techawks was proficient enough at knocking the little white sphere around to win his singles match. Armour also won one of the doubles matches. Wright, on the other hand, won a doubles and three singles matches. The best scores of the day were turned in by Richards of Armour, and Davis of Wright, both of whom turned in a 78 in the singles. The other scores ranged from eighty-one to ninety. Shanahan lost to Davies of Wright, the score of their match being 78 to 82. Richards of Armour, beat his opponent, Iankowiak, by same score. Skuza lost to Sunderland, and Haase lost to Ecklund in the other singles matches. Armour and Wright split the doubles matches. Skuza and Haase beat Davies and Sunderland in the first match. ln the other doubles match, Richards and Shanahan lost to Iankowiak and Ecklund. The next match of the season was played at Southmoor, Indiana State Teachers being the visitors. On this occasion the Armour team turned loose with all the power that they had at their command. lt was in this meet that the Armour golfers got some of the lowest scores that they had been able to get all year. Perhaps the fact that it was at the end of the season and they had received plenty of practice had something to do with it. Richards proved to be the best golfer of the day, turning in a low of eighty-one. Shan- ahan, Skuza, and Davidson each had scores of eighty-three, which is not bad golfing on any man's course. The best score that any of the Teachers could turn in was an eighty-six. The final score of the meet stood at Armour l6V2. Indiana State Teachers lk. l6l IUNIOR WEEK Schultz Winkler, Moore, Holmes, Martin, Droegemueller, Lomiller Iunior Week is that week of the year at Armour during which the intense concentration of the student is transferred from the class room to the athletic field, and diverse activities none of which are concerned with "book-learning." The entire Week, devoted to baseball, track, hobo parades, openhouse, and innumerable other activities, serves as an outlet for that terrible dilemma- Spring-fever. The week started with the parade of the Hobos on Monday morning. For being the "best dressed" hobos, B. M. Anderson, freshman, and I. Galandak, senior, received prizes of shaving soap and brush, respectively. The be- spectacled Galandak and the femininely attired Anderson were the outstand- ing examples of what the hobo is supposed to look like in the eyes of the "upper crust." Fraternity Open House night was inaugurated to promote more good spirit between the fraternity and non-fraternity men. The idea, which is new this year, was a great success. The progressive dance was well attended and proved very popular. Tuesday was started off with the Iunior-Senior baseball game at 9:30. Fol- lowing the ball game, the lnterfraternity Relays and the lnterclass Relays held the field until noon, when the Interfraternity baseball finals were played off. At l:OU PM, one of the outstanding events of every Iunior Week took the field, the Faculty-Senior Baseball Game. The Faculty, stepping out of their dignified role for the afternoon, were just boys again. Captained by Coach Kraft and Coach Weissman the faculty team took the field in their usual rowdy manner. Iudging from their swashbuckling manner it would be difficult to imagine them conducting themselves with the decorum becoming their calling. " vever, the tried-and-true faculty came through with their thirtieth straight over the graduating seniors, by taking the game with a score of 25-24, ring fifteen runs legally and the remainder on thick-eyed umpiring. o start off the scoring riot the faculty poled the old apple all over the lot l scored ten runs in the first stanza, partially due to the thick-eyed umpire. L game began to take on a more tense nature as Coach Weissman was pitch- no-hit ball and the seniors were hard pressed. At about this time the sen- 162 Peek! . . . The Marionettes at Open House . . . Phi Pi Phi, lnterfraternity Relays winners Distillation . . . Stevens to Winblad--Seniors, lnterclass Relays winners iors introduced a handicap for the faculty in the form of a CO2 fire extinguisher which they used to becloud the first sack in the hope that the "Score-Crazed" faculty would be lost in the fog. Undaunted by the Frost-Fog the faculty "carried on." Although this is strictly off the record, there are rumors that the faculty were usually to be found on the third sack, instead of the first, when the fog lifted. The faculty outfield was airtight which drove the seniors to con- centrate their attack on the infield. Harris turned in a nice record for himself with three errors. The outstanding ballplaying was done by our superrball player, Kraft, Who, after letting five balls pass right through him, Was pulled out of the game. The game went into the tenth spazm after a ninth inning rally by the seniors. This extension of the game was no help to the faculty Whose sedentary habits Were beginning to catch up with them. Wednesday saw the start of the interfraternity track activities and the close of the iriterclass baseball. The finals of the interfraternity track meet were held at 2:00 P.M. At 7:30 P.M. the spring concert and interfraternity sing were held. Pi Kappa Phi repeated their last year's victory by Winning the sing again this year. The other fraternities taking part were Delta Tau Delta, Phi Kappa Sigma, Phi Pi Phi, Sigma Alpha Mu, Theta Xi. The judges were Miss Nell Steele, Professor Emeritus Charles Leigh, and Dr. Rufus Oldenburger. The Spring Concert, under the direction of O. Gordon Erickson, was given before a large and enthusiastic audience of parents and friends. The concert featured several soloists: a trumpet solo by I. H. lohnsen, a saxophone solo by R. M. Paulson, and an accordian duet by B. F. Heine, and L. Skubic. Thursday saw the finals of the interdepartmental baseball, and the Iunior- Senior events in the morning. The afternoon brought the Pentathlon, and evening brought the traditional Bonfire and celebration by the entire student body. The evening began with a huge bonfire just north of the gas lab. The students, led by the Iunior Marshals, snake-danced around the fire singing the fight song. As the blaze died down so did the enthusiasm, but in the shadows 163 5' ,i 1.144 3111" .. :div ' Gy R ,JJ- -AR, J n Careful of that Blood Pressure-Ballet Master at Play-Freezing ihe Bases. Yup!

The new scheme was to meet in the Loop where we could not be harassed by the bevy of squad cars with which we were honored on the campus. The snake dance was re- newed on State street where the hundred-or-so gathered. The dance tangled traffic in the desired fashion and a great time was had until the snake showed a weakness for the current attraction at the Chicago Theatre. The management of the theatre had some very definite ideas of their own about snake-dances, and, by calling all hands, repelled the invasion, taking one hostage who was soon at large due to the efforts of Mr. Allison. What was to have been one of the most interesting events of the lunior- Senior clash for Thursday went off half-cocked, and, while it was anything but a miss-fire from a spectators viewpoint, it was enjoyed by only a very few. The event was to have been an egg tossing contest, something as follows: the Iuniors line up facing the Seniors: the Iuniors all have an egg in their handy both lines take one step to the rearg the Iuniors toss the egg to the Seniors, each having an assigned partner to whom he is to toss said "hen fruit," the Senior partner catches the egg, and then both lines again take a step backwardy the egg is now tossed to the luniors. The procedure is continued and the class breaking the least eggs wins after they have passed a certain point.

A counter-attack was immediately launched to seize the crate of barn- yard nuggets, pandemonium reigned-not to mention the "reign" of eggs- the street was a seething mass of egg smeared upper classmen. So ended what was to have been a dignified contest-Oh well, you can't beat fun. Friday, the closing day of a hectic week, started off in the morning with the athletic award assembly. The athletic awards for the year were given out by the coaches of the respective teams. This idea, new to Iunior Week, was not as well attended as was expected, due to the intensive activities of the freshmen and sophomores. Friday being the day of the Frosh-Soph Rush, it was impossible to pull the two classes apart long enough to get them assembled under one roof without drastic results, so the assembly was held without them. At high noon came the Interfraternity Pageant. The pageant was won by the Phi Kaps. Phi Kappa Sigma presented a colorful skit entitled "Iungle Armour" in which three scientists discovered the ruins of Armour in the year 2036. The ruins yielded a WPA Worker leaning on a shovel, and some students playing cards while some black savages stood around. The most exciting event of any Iunior Week is always the Frosh-Soph Rush. This is always held on Friday afternoon to terminate the activities of the week on the campus. The Freshmen and Sophomores line up at the h field and when the Marshals have placed the bags in the center, decide once and for all, the year on ends of t e d the signal is given, the fight starts to , ' for many months.

The Prom was accompanied by all of the glamor, color, and gayety of a formal college function. A note of novelty was sounded when it was held for the first time at a country club located on the outskirts of Chicago. An exhilarating ride through the countryside before the eve- ning's festivities were started served to put the dancers in the best of spirits, so that the strains of syncopation issuing forth from Emil l:'lindt's rhythmic orchestra and the soft lights together with the smooth floor were well received by the Armourites when they arrived at the Elmhurst Country Club. The dancers' appetites for material things were satisfied when supper was served at midnight between the melodic offerings of the orchestra. The formally clad Techawks and their beauteous friends spread the joyous sounds of merriment over the beautiful and spacious lawns surrounding the club house, and out into the clear, star-lit countryside air. The beautiful star light and the large grounds made strolling out into the night between dances an added pleasure. The orchestra's renditions of various spe- cial arrangements, including the Armour "Alma Mater" and the "Fight Song," did much to make the evening completely enjoyable. The gala Prom spirit was shared with the students and their guests by Dean and Mrs. Heald, Mr. and Mrs. Allison, and Mr. Setterberg and his guest. The popularity of this country club dance is attested by the fact that the one hundred and fifty couples who attended danced on into the not-so-wee hours of the morning. 167 F A r T H E S E N I O R C I..

McCaulay Lewis E. Zwissler Edward F. Schmaltz ln the spring a young man's fancy turns to many things in addition to love. To the Senior at Armour, spring means Commencement, and Commencement bears the connotation of cherished memories of the past and a hazy outlook into the future. Four years of comradeship, studies, and activities constitute our fond memories. It is the thought of these that leaves us with a lump in our throat and a tear in our eye as the day of Commencement approaches. Turning back the pages of history and reminiscing into those memorable days as underclassmen, our dreams take us first to our registration as Fresh- men. The surroundings of Armour and the newness of college life helped to instill in us that "know it all" attitude apparently so essential and prevalent among Sophomores. As Sophomores we found ourselves already setting new precedents and traditions. Entering the rush as the "underdogs," as the result of having been subjected to ignominous defeat as Freshmen, we rose to the proverbial height of the occasion and became the fourth class in the history of the noble event to win as Sophomores. As Sophomores we became the first class to run two dances, which attained a new high, both in financial as well as social success. Thus we ended the first chapter of our engineering educa- tion which prepared us so well for our more specialized training as upper- classmen. As the Iunior year wore on, and the hair on our chin grew so that it became necessary to shave every day instead of the customary every other day, we began to learn the difference between chemistry and chemical engineering, electricity and electrical engineering, and all of those other hazy ideas which cluttered up our mind as Freshmen. Membership in the engineering societies, athletic teams, school publications, and other campus activities began to occupy a very large part of our time. Our contribution to the first semester social whirl consisted of a Christmas dance, held among the beautiful sur- roundings of the Boulevard Room in the Stevens Hotel. By the time we made up our mind on getting down to serious work for the second semester, we found that lunior Week was upon us, which meant the traditional postponing of the l68 Bartusek, Dreis, Goldsmith, Haase, lands McCaulay, Schmaltz, Sobolik, Stem, Zwissler semester's work until the last three weeks of school. That memorable week of events which tightened the knot binding our friendship into a firm everlasting realism, was climaxed with the most befitting of all traditional lunior Formals which was held at the lovely Elmhurst Country Club under the beautiful setting of a warm spring evening and a cloudless starlit sky. The success of the commission form of class government during the Iunior year Was the cue for its readoption in our Senior year. Departmental politics, which always have been the chief "bugaboo" of all other forms of student government, were completely disposed of. ln a public election a president was elected in the customary way, and two commissioners selected by each department as representatives were responsible for all class affairs. Function- ing in the manner, the class made definite strides into the portals of Armour's mythical hall of fame. The long list of extra curricular activities found its way into most of our spare time, and many of us found ourselves very thoroughly occupied acting as leaders in the engineering societies, athletic teams, fra- ternities, publications, musical clubs, and other time consuming and anti- schoolwork organizations. The social side of our education was taken care of at the Senior Informal, held during the Thanksgiving holidays in the Gold Room of the Congress Hotel. This event furnished a new high in turnout for school dances. As we reach the last few pages in our book of memories we recall that the most popular expression in our last semester was: "Have you got a job?" Employment was the most popular topic of conversation. Leaving school at the termination of one of the most severe economic depressions, many of our classmates had secured positions long before Commencement Day. That great day of Commencement gradually creeped up on us, and before we knew it, it had arrived and found us, the Seniors, in a very bewildered condition. The bitter thought that Commencement meant for many of us, the last vision of some of our classmates whom we had learned to love and whose friendship and comradeship had developed into an intimate understanding of each other, leaves us with a heavy heart, which furthers our fondness for each other, and makes us realize that even though we may never see them again, they will loom up as bright stars before our dreamy mind as we reminisce in our field of memories of our days at dear old Armour. 169 SENIOR COMMITTEES GRADUATION COMMITTEE IEWELRY COMMITTEE S.

W , 3 The l936 Alumni Banquet at the Meclinah Club The Alumni Association of Armour lnstitute of Technology is incorporated under the laws of the state of illinois, and has for its objects the maintenance of close relations between the Alumni and their Alma Mater, the promotion of good fellowship and mutual welfare among its members, and in general the advancement of the interests of Armour lnstitute of Technology. All graduates of Armour Tech, former students and faculty members are eligible to member- ship in the Association. The Association maintains quite a complete file of the membership and is constantly trying to keep this file up to date. The "Armour Engineer and Alumnus" is the official publication of the as sociation and a copy of each issue of this magazine is mailed to all members whose correct address is known. Money derived from the sale of life memberships is placed in a student loan fund and loaned to Iunior and Senior students who are in need of financial help in order to finish the work at Armour. The association gives a citation each year to the outstanding member of the Senior class, and the presentation of this citation takes place at the annual spring banquet. Plans are well under way for publishing an alumni directory during the summer of 1937. l89 wg rsh- A Lake-Same Lcrke-Well, Get Goinq.

ARMOUR INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY CHICAGO l Offers four-year courses and graduate Work in MECHANICAL ENGINEERING ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING CIVIL ENGINEERING CHEMICAL ENGINEERING FIRE PROTECTION ENGINEERING ARCHITECTURE ENGINEERING SCIENCE AND FIVE-YEAR COOPERATIVE COURSE IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING , l Programs of instruction are carefully planned to provide a background for advance in the professional fields: to develop a capacity for logical thinking: and to stimulate an active interest in current scientific, business, and social problems. l Summer session Iune 21 to August 13, 1937 l First semester begins September 16, 1937 l THE INSTITUTE BULLETIN WILL BE SENT ON APPLICATION 191 Did l Draw That?-Question of Fact?- l Tell You, Prof, That Bridge Will Collapse! Prof I Did It Myself---But VJhy?- Watch Closely! PHOOEY INVENTIONS A black shoe polish, to be applied directly to the socks, has been produced by l. Rea, Arx. '39. "My shoe polish is ideal for a needy student's summer footwear. l got the idea when a fraternity brother of mine took my shoes on a date and left me flat-footed." Bob Worcester, EE. '38 has developed a phone that rings l5 minutes before the call comes through. This enables the callee to finish his bath, and ban- ishes forever the shrinking of rugs and warping of furniture due to the bath- tub overflow. 'k if 'A' i' E. I. Pleva, junior chemical, has a patent pending on a multiple-series, mini- mum friction, combination safety trap-door and sky-light. "Every college chem lab in the country will install a batch of the Pleva Peerless Poop-out Portals in its ceiling as a safety precaution to its students. These trap-doors, operating almost frictionlessly, afford a safe and efficient exit to experimenting students. They obviate the unsightly inconvenience of jagged holes in the school's roof occasioned by the sailing carcasses of student experimentersf' 1' 'A' 'I' il' An inkless fountain pen without any ink supply whatever, designed for the purpose of preventing inkspots on vests in the event of leakage, was per- fected here at Armour last week by I. I-llousek, ME. '37. Mr. Hlousek's pen is made without a point so that, if at any time the cap should accidently unscrew, the wearer is not stabbed to death. To preclude any possibility of the caps unscrewing, Mr. Hlousek has designed a cap which is welded on, fashioning the pen from a bar of cast iron. Mr. Hlousek is now conducting a series of exhaustive experiments in an attempt to discover a way of making his pen write. The Automotive laboratory at Armour has recently put out an ambulance powered by rubbing alcohol and lubricated with camphor oil. Possessing ten forward speeds, no brakes to insure utmost speed, and a governor which doesn't allow its speed to drop below 58 miles per hour, it promises to be a Godsend to the humane work of hospitals everywhere. 192 CONFESSIONS OF AN ENGINEER Boy, what a relief, it sure feels good to start a new semester . . . a clean slate . . .
