We are now engaged in the great work, of building up a strong body of workers for the home, the school, the church, and the nation, testing whether an institution so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We have come to the time when we must prove our county as a garden spot second to none in the world, not only in material products, but also in developing the best pos- sible product — that of strong manhood and womanhood. But, in a certain sense, we cannot improve on the work done by our fathers. They have provided the ideal and have done the difficult pioneer work. Our county and state will little note nor long remember what the class of ' 24 has done to further the work of her Alma Mater, but they can never ig- nore nor forget what our forefathers sacrificed in founding her. It is for us, the constituency and the members of the school, to be re- consecrated to the great task awaiting our effort — that from the example of these honored forefathers we shall be roused to unprecedented devotion to the cause for which they gave their life-blood, pouring it out unstintingly in ser- vice. We should, accordingly, resolve that these men shall not have sacrificed in vain; that our institution shall, by God ' s help, go forth to greater achieve- ments in the name of Jesus Christ, the King. Ten I " iCC t« SPOToftAeV 0y? - y N t- y and One of the chief factors that has made our county the fairest that e ' er the sun shone on is the response of its early settlers to the goodness of their God as they expressed it in a simple religion and an industrious, thrifty life. The earliest white settlers were Mennonites (1709), followed closely by Scotch-Irish Presbyterians, Brethren, and branches of each of these. Elizabethtown grew up where it did because its earliest buildings served as stop- ping-places for travelers upon the great trail from Philadelphia to the west. The town was founded in 1753 by Barnabas Hughes who named it for his wife. The population has doubled within the last twenty years. The present population is about 3500. ■ ■ Eleven I I I I " CC- ii I I Out door Ljf 1 1 -:i£c ■ i ii FAIRVIEW APARTMENTS MEMORIAL HALL ALPHA HALL I I I I I I -I " CC- ii FAIRVIEW APARTMENTS I I I I V r i i i i o -IiCC ALPHA HALL II I I -IM College Song MRS.

The locating committee met at Mountville. At a meeting held at Elizabethtown April 5, 1 809, it was decided to have a co- educational school including Bible, Academic, and Collegiate departments. At a second meeting held at Elizabethtown June 7, 1800, it was decided to locate the school at Elizabethtown and name it Elizabethtown College. The first president elect was Elder I. N. H. Beahm but because of illness Elder G. N. Falkenstein acted as president. He was officially elected in 1901. During his administration the ground was broken for the first building; the school was moved from the Heisey building, and on March 4, 190 1, Alpha Hall was dedicated. The second administration was piloted by Dr. Reber. This administra- tion is noteworthy because of the introduction of instrumental music, the Eng- lish Scientific Course, and the first graduating class. Elder 1. N. H. Beahm was re-elected in 1904 and served until 1907. It was during this administration that Memorial Hall was erected and dedicated March 4, 1006. This building was erected to the memory of J. H. Rider, a faithful contributor of the school. During Dr. Reber ' s second administration which extended from 1907 to 1918 the most outstanding event was the organization of the Pedagogical Course. Another important event occurred April 26, 10 1 7, when Eastern Penna. took over Elizabethtown College as the property of the church district. At the close of Dr. Reber ' s administration Professor H. K. Ober took hold of the helm, serving as president until 1921. It was during his administra- tion that the problem of standardization arose and the campaign for £400,000 was opened. This campaign closed January 28, 102 1, with a total of $425,- 000 solicited by R. W. Schlosser, Elder I. W. Taylor, and Elder G. N. Falken- stein. On June 7, 1921, the new Fairview Apartments building was dedicated. This is the third of the regular College buildings. Professor J. G. Meyer, the next president, served until July, 1024. It was during his administration that probably the greatest event in the history of the College occurred. December 2 1, 1921, the students and faculty were in- formed that Elizabethtown was a standard college. Our courses were revised and standardized, resulting in the approval of tive standard courses each lead- Eighlecn -Ii£0 ing to the Baccalaureate degree. October 25, 1923, a letter from the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania informed the school family that our graduates would be admitted to that institution in the same way as graduates from any other col- lege. Columbia and Harvard had already announced that in the spring of 1022 our graduates would receive full recognition there. With the opening of the school year, 1 24- 1 925, Professor H. K. Ober returns as president of the school. We anticipate that the school will continue to grow, attaining a still higher standard of efficiency in the educational world and serving the various needs of the constituency. The history of our College is interesting not only from the growth of buildings and important events but also from the point of view that shows the increase in the number of students. The following statistics will show to you this development.

The motto of the class is kept constantly be- fore the school. The ' 2 3 Class Day Exercises were held at this place. During August of the same summer a few sessions of the Workers ' Conference were held at this lovely spot. The class of ' 2 4 has unconsciously proclaimed her admiration for this open-air forum by holding some of its business meetings there. We predict that in the future many will be attracted to the meetings in this leafy bower from whence strains of sweetest music sweep the campus. Twenty :■£■: " i£C Who ' s Who We desire that our friends shall become acquainted with those who have worked on College Hill during the school year. You have already been introduced to the Etonian Start ' , the group which has attained its majority (in number if not in years). They have labored hard and long that you may enjoy this " best ever " yearbook. They recognize the fact that their product is not flawless, but also feel assured that it will be of intense interest to those who look this way. Our trustees are real fathers to the school and are untiring in their la- bors for the school family. . Our esteemed faculty is a corps of willing, cheerful workers whose hearts are aglow with wholesome enthusiasm for Christian edu- cation. The senior class is the largest in the history of the school. The student body is strong and representative. What hopes can be too extravagant for the realization of the varied high purposes which beam forth from the very faces of our young people? The Master Teacher will do for all of us who will permit Him, exceeding abundantly above all that we could ask or think! TwenlM-lrvo -Ii£C- 1 1 ii ■ i ■ i ■i£C- i i ii PROFESSOR I. G. MEYER, A. M.

" Happy am I. from care I am free, Why aren ' t all as happy as me? " This man of brains is a rural representative from the ((unity of Lancaster. He received his diploma from Millersville State Normal School, after which he taught in the schools of Mt. Joy Township tor a period of twenty years. Eight of these were spent in principalship of the .Milton Grove High School. But this man is not only a teacher, he is also a man of affairs. He is " squire " of .Mt. Joy Township. He also has athletic procliv- ities, being baseball catcher of marked ability on a number of the larger teams, chief among which is the team of Albright College. It is not necessary for tis to forecast this man ' s future. WALTER JAMES BERGEY Doylestown, Pa. " It ' s the songs you sing and the smiles you wear That ' s making the sunshine everywhere. " Bergey is a member of our class who .joined our ranks in the Senior year. He began his secondary education in the Doylestown High School and com- pleted it in the West Chester Normal School. This was followed by several years of collegiate work at the Eastern Mennonite School, Harrisonburg, Vir- ginia, lie lias already had some experience in the school room while teaching in the private school at Northampton Co.. 1 ' a. Bergey believes in building four square. Anions the sports in which he is es- pecially interested are basketball and skating. When lie arrives at the pond there is one grand rush among the members id ' the opposite sex. He carried the baritone solo parts in the Christmas cantata. Our best wishes for Bergey ' s success in tlie teaching profession attend him. " BERGEY " I Thirly-fivc I I " DAVE ' ice I I DAVID FRANTZ BRIGHTBILL 423 Bollman Street Lebanon, Pa. " In body an l mind so great and strong With bold, noble strides he moves along. " Have is the " lone star " from the metropolis of Lebanon. His name lias been found on the list of faculty members for the past two years: the first year as teacher of mathematics, and this year as physical culture director. His deep bass voice served well in the Honierian Quartet and solo work in chorus class. Dave ' s religious development is not lacking for he is often found on deputation teams in the interests of the Volunteer Band. Sometimes it is difficult for this hoy to concentrate due to the fact that a large part, in fact we believe the " better half " of his interest is centered in the town of Waynesboro, l ' a. Our host wishes go with Have as a teacher of Mathematics. DAVID EMERSON BRINSER Middletown, Pa. " Me for married life. Not this single strife. " Dave is the boy who made Koyalton High School famous. You do not wonder why. do you? He is. an alumnus of that school. After taking a few brief courses at Millersville State Normal School the teaching profession claimed this man. He taught seven years in the schools of Londonderry Township, three years in Koyalton. and three years in the schools of Middletown. During his summer vacation he enrolled as a student at Elizabethtown College. Dave is married and says that he is not sorry. He is interested in accountancy and may later take his ( ' . 1 ' . A.. Whatever you do. Dave, he it accountancy or teaching, we know that you ' ll he successful. Our best wishes go with you.

This lady was born in Missouri. You may not believe that when you look at her picture, but " looks are deceiving. " It requires less time and space to tell where she has not been and what she has not done, than the opposite. Site has been the head of commercial departments in a number of High Schools and Nor- mal Schools. Not only does she talk, hut she says (?) some- thing when she talks. For one summer her services were given to the Republican Woman ' s Committee of which she was a member. Our class is very proud to have as a member this lady of affairs. May the Fates. Helen Camp- bell, be even more propitious in the days to come than they have been in the past. ' A. P. I C- ALVIN PFAUTZ WENGER Elizabethtown, Pa. " In all thy humor whether grave or mellow Tbou ' rt such a touchy, testy, pleasant fellow. Hast so much wit and mirth and spleen about thee, That there ' s no living with thee or without thee. " Here is the big gun of the infantry department. After he graduated from the Millersville State Normal School be taught in the various schools for twenty-nine years. In fact he has been princi- pal for nineteen years. He came to Elizabethtown College in the spring of 1923 and assumed princi- palship of the academy in the fall of 1923. He is a married man and is frequently heard boasting that he has never had a quarrel with his wife. We are inclined however to give Mrs. Wenger a large part of the credit for this blessing. A. 1 ' . is the proud father of six sons, each a great man in the making. We have no reason to doubt that the future of this man will be as bright as his pasl lias been.

Altho this man is one of our day students we find him taking an active part in all of our school func- tions. He is chairman of the Volunteer Band, Nice Chairman of the senior class and a minister of the Gospel. S. (i. has taken bis major work in the iield of Education and Social Science. We think the latter was rather superfluous for he had already taken unto himself a wife before coming to school. Next year we expect to find S. G. in Chicago pur- suing graduate work. From our past experience of bis ability we are sure that whether he enters tlie Held of teaching or the ministry he will lie successful.

But they, while their companions slept, Were toiling upward in the night. " Here ' s one of the few members of our class whose future is sealed. Dan was married January 1. mi ' :;. He was business manager of our Etonian, and during the first semester lie was chairman of the student council. He completed the Bachelor of Science course in mid-year and immediately moved to Waynesboro where he put to practice the knowl- edge gained in his school work. If you take a glance at the picture of this man you will believe with us that both hair and brains cannot he grown at the same place. In the future we will find this man towering to success as one of the world ' s business magnets, our best wishes attend Han in his work. ELSIE MAY LANDIS Leacock, Pa. " ( !ome, what come may. Always cheerful, always nay. " Here you behold a lady of the highest type. She graduated from East Lampeter High School witli honors. She I hen came to Elizabethtown Col- lege and graduated in the pedagogical course in 1922. Elsie May is a rather versatile girl. She is one of the girls who helped to win the basket-ball championship for the Senior class. Unstinting ser- vice was also given by her to " Our College Times " for several years. Then, too. she is a good student. Her grades verify tins fact. We know that this lady has a very bright fu- ture. She has had calls from various places to lill teachers ' chairs, even before her graduation. Sue- cess to you, Elsie in your loyal devotion to your life ' s work. " ELSIE MAY Thirlv-ninc I I -Ii£C- ii SHELDON S. R. MADEIRA 1947 Swatara Street Harrisburg, Pa. But wherever you go, whatever you do The class ' s best wishes lire ever with you. How happy we are that this dignified ami wise gentleman left the " Capitol City " and east his lot with ours for he is one of our very host all around elass mates, and a student witli excellent class rec- ords. He completed his secondary education at the Elizabethtown High School, took his freshman year of College work at Juniata College, his sopho- more year at Dickinson College, and his last two years at E ' town. Madeira displayed his ability in argumentation in the intercollegiate debates. His ability along artistic lines is shown in several of our cartoons. His avocation is writing personals for the " Our College Times " i ' . ' i We are unable to predict his future. ' MADEIRA ' " MARTHA ' I MARTHA MARTIN Elizabethtown, Pa. " Thoughtful, loyal, ready to do. And a friend to cheer when you feel blue. " .Martha is the editor-in-chief of our Etonian. It seems this studious lady uses " promptness " as her guide word, because unless unavoidably delayed we never rind her late. She edited " ur College Times " during her Junior year. Her interest in the religious sphere is manifested by the active part she takes in Sunday School and Church work. She is never found idle: dining our school vacation she is busy directing Daily Vacation Bible Schools. In the future we expect to find her engaged in the work of the Master. Maltha has an excellent class record and if we may judge from this we are sure her record in life will be just as complimentary. Fori]) I M ■■Cc •EPH ' EPHRAIM GIBBLE MEYER Fredericksburg, Pa. " Music is his greatest aim, He sings for that and not for fame. " This man hails from Lebanon county. He has been in attendance at E ' town for a number of years. It is lie to whom the class is indebted for the melody of its class song. If you glance at the photos of the faculty you will find him among them as voice instructor. In 1919 Eph graduated in the pedagogical course. He is also a graduate in the .Music Teachers ' course with the class of 1921. In addition to his work at Elizabethtown he has pur- sued courses of study both at the Columbia Uni- versity, New York, and the American Schools of Music located in Chicago. The best wishes of the class attend you. ESTHER PAULINE TRIMMER 264 West South Street Carlisle, Pa. " To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence. " This " feather weight " member of our class hails from the lulls of Cumberland County. She is one of the two members of our class who entered Elizabethtown College in the fall of 1920 and fin- ished her college work in four years of continuous work at school. Her interests are rather divided between school and its activities and a certain ex- student who is taking under graduate work in store management. " Eck " is experimenting in home making in Fairview Apartments as a pre- paratory step for life ' s work. She plays forward in basket-ball, sings in chorus and made herself famous as a public speaker in the inter-collegiate debate. The next two years may find her in the school room but she has a brighter future. ' ECK ' I Forty- -Ii£C y th? " HEN ' HENRY R. WEILER 764 Marietla Avenue Lancaster, Pa. " And when a lady ' s in the ease, Yon know all other things give place. " We were glad to welcome " Hen " into our class .it the beginning of the Senior year. He is a man of experience having been in attendance at Millers- ville State Normal School from which he graduated in 1922, and at Lebanon Valley and Franklin and Marshall Colleges. At the beginning of the second semester the stu- dent body elected " Hen " to the Student Council of which lie was chosen President. But his activities did not stop with this. He is also a debater, having served on the negative team of the school. It is very di fficult to predict this man ' s future since his abilities are so diversified. He may teach, he may launch into the business world, or In ' may have a combination of one of these with marriage. Success to you. " Hen. " I I " ET " ETHEL M. B. WENGER Rexmont, Pa.

The personnel of the Junior Class comprises not only those who began their work in the fall of 1920, but also others who have come from teaching school, office work, and various fields of endeavor. The class in the beginning consisted of thirty-tive members, but in the second year of the course quite a number completed the Pedagogical Course and the Junior College Commercial Course. Of this group a number entered the fields of teaching, office work, and home-making. Two of the original number, however, came back the following year to continue the A. B. course and this spring are granted the degree. The Junior Class is small, only seven in number. But we believe we are strong because of the fact that each member of the class has already had a taste of life ' s hard school in experiences of school room and office routine. This group of seven first organized September 18, 192 3, choosing for their President, Ralph Prey; Vice-President, Melvin Shisler; Secretary, Vera Hackman; Treasurer, Francis Barr. The class is especially favored in having as their advisor Prof. H. H. Nye. We can feel confident that by his keen judg- ment and sound wisdom we will be steered through the course of events to a successful career. Since the organization of the class, committees have been appointed to direct certain affairs of the class. The committee whose work was of no little importance and whose services will be remembered by the class in a concrete way was the one appointed to select a class flower, class colors, and class motto. This committee consisted of three members, namely; Vera Hackman, Mary Baugher and Grace Smith. The committee suggested the Red American Beauty rose as class flower; Maroon and Cream as class colors, and " Ad astra per Aspera " (to the stars through difficulties) as a class motto. The sugges- tions of the committee we adopted by a unanimous decision. The selections made deserve careful notice. Especially do we think so in the selection of the motto. The motto is significant of the attainment to which this class is determined to reach even though this height must be reached Sixly-tTl ' O •IiCC through struggle. Each member is a tirm adherent of the philosophy that " Struggle begets strength. " Upon this small band of seven rests the responsi- bility of planning the product of the next " Etonian. " Because of the small class each member bears an equal share of the great task. The class is made up of members whose interests radiate in the field of world activity. Two members of the class represented the college as delegates at the International Student Volunteer Conference which convened in Indian- apolis, Indiana, December 28, 1923, to January 1, 1924. The president of the class, whose interest inclines him to the sphere of internat ional problems, was a member of the debating squad. The question for debate which is of world-wide interest, " Resolved, that the United States should enter the World Court as it is now constituted, " received quite a bit of his attention. By his adept ability in argumentation he was able to help win the debate in which our school met Ursinus College. As the Junior class approaches the border line of the last year of the course, the members can look upon the past three years of college work with cherished recollections and upon the year yet in the future with resplendent anticipation. No past more glorious, no future more golden than that of the Class of ' 25. s Sixly-three I I I I 3CO Class of 1925 Our loved, our honored, much respected class To thee each friend his homage pays.

This expression is often heard on the halls, but the people that say it must remember that it was not so very many years ago, that they were only Sophomores themselves. Our greenness has worn off quite a bit and we are better able to withstand the bumps that come our way. The class of ' 26 was the tirst class that organized and adopted a con- stitution in the Freshman year. The consent of the faculty for this organiza- tion was secured, and accordingly the Freshman class met on January 5, 1923, and elected officers. These officers held their office until January, 1 24, when the class was re-organized. The historian and photographer hold their offices for four years, but a new photographer was elected this year as the one who held the position last year was elected President, and no person can hold two offices at the same time. Russell Hackman was elected the new photographer. These officers are very well qualified for their positions. The President graduated from York Academy with honors, and has shown his abilities since his stay on College Hill. He takes a prominent part in all school activi- ties and also plays on the Sophomore Basket-Bail team. The Nice-President hails from Lebanon County, and she certainly puts that county on the map. She has marked abilities not only in the class room, but also along musical lines. The Secretary of our class is also titted for her work as she has had quite a bit of experience along sercetarial lines while in High School. The Treasurer is one who is accustomed to handling money as she is treasurer of several or- ganizations on the Hill, and we are sure that she can very ably take care of our funds. The other members of our class also have great abilities along several lines. Our representative from the west can give first hand information on the western farmer ' s situation and other problems that arise in Economics class. Several members of the class are taking the Commercial Course and are apply- ing their training b y managing the College store and teaching in the Prepara- tory Commercial Department. One member is now substituting in a High School near Pittsburgh and is getting along very nicely. Sixty-eight :cc ■ i Every one worked very diligently last year, so we as a class did not have many social functions last year, but those we did have are worthy of note. In May, 192 3, we went to Dublin Gap in Cumberland County for our first outing. We went in three automobiles and had a very delightful trip. Al- though it rained later in the day, the rain did not hinder us from having ' a good time. In November the Sophomore class had its first social for the year 1924 at the home of Mary Strickler. The class was conveyed to her country home in automobiles. The evening was spent very delightfully in playing games and listening to music given by members of the class. The delicious " eats " proved to us that we were in the country. Every mouthful had the savor of good old-fashioned country food. Several of the underclassmen served the refreshments. Professor and Mrs. A. C. Baugher and Mrs. Campbell were our chaperons. We decided that we could not have had a better time, and went back to the Hill wishing that the season would bring forth many more socials of the kind. The second social was held in February at the home of Frances Musser. This was another case of going to the country for a good time. In short the social was just what everyone tried to make it, and I will assure you that every one did his best to make it the success that it was. The same can be said of the eats at this party as was said of those we had at the first one. An interesting feature of the evening was a German recitation given by our class advisor, Pro- fessor A. C. Baugher. Mrs. Baugher and Miss Yourdon were our chaperons. We all went back to the Hill feeling that the night had brought forth all that was in store for us. Since the class of 1926 was the first class to enter Elizabethtown Col- lege since her standardization, it has set several standards that are worthy of note. It was the first class to have a class constitution, and it was also the first class group to be composed entirely of students of College standing. Keeping in mind the motto of the College which is " Educate for Service " and the motto of the class which is " Aim Straight, " and adding to these mottoes the virtues of our class of 1926, this class will long be remembered by those who suc- ceed us.

' That memorable autumn day back in September when the freshies bag and baggage arrived on College Hill! Meeting ' " Roomies, " getting acquainted with the worn path to the dining room; wandering, haplessly and fearfully, with a feeling of discomfort through strange foreboding halls, desperately at- tempting to memorize: first, dean ' s office; second, president ' s office; third, treasurer ' s office; finally, registrar ' s office- — -then with a sinking, trembling feel- ing meeting the austere occupants of the above offices, marked the first week at College. Timidity soon wore off and with a decided rapidity the thirty-two freshies were assimilated into College. life even trained to the shrill ring of alarm clocks! The Freshman Class began with the year filled to the brim, yea even to overflowing, with vim, courage and enthusiasm. The first step was well taken in selecting Professor Schlosser to steer the stormy course, and the elec- tion returns disclosed a capable, efficient body of officers. Wisdom was equally displayed in choosing the executive and social committees. Then the Blue and Gold proudly took their place beside the Blue and Gray. During Education Week the freshmen had the opportunity to tell the student body, " Why We Are in College. " As a result of that Chapel meeting, as well as many other praise worthy enterprises, they made the others " stop! look! and listen! " The freshies explicitly display their school spirit for their new Alma Mater at every available opportunity. It came into full view in the Etonian Contest. " Shall we enter- " Of course! " lustily came the prompt reply and as usual — came out on the top. Next came athletics. Again the class began to shine. Opponents soon were introduced to the fact that winning games on the part of the fresh- ies was a common occurrence. One of the most admirable qualities of the Class is the enthusiasm which fully involves every prospect, not only intellec- tually and physically, but also socially. The " Green Inning " in which eats played no small part, was beyond the shadow of a doubt the most successful social function ever held ! The other classes early recognized the fact that the Freshman Class was a fine source to draw upon. They are represented on everything from Student Council to the " College Times! " The class has indeed won distinc- tion and recognition — a freshie with his bright canary yellow and brilliant blue cap can be seen on any spot of the campus. % o Seventy-four !■ C c Zy h The enthusiasm is growing and, as each year takes the Class farther out into the sea of life, it will continue to expand and develop, making it one of the most exceptional classes to leave the portals of E-town. The capable body of officers, the worthy, efficient class advisor, yes every member of the class has helped to make ' 2 7 a flaming example of success! The ship of state with the Blue and Gold floating in the breeze is ready to leave the freshman harbor, to sail on — on into the misty sea of the coming year prepared to brave any storm !

Some day " Lettie " will help him in his business career. Hein, Paul (Heiny) is another of the freshman Pauls. He is class treasurer and a good one; for he never forgets to collect our dues. Herman W. Floyd (Fat) travels much but who knows where? He is at his post of duty and able to perform his tasks. Hershey, Alverda (Hershey) is our class secretary.

She brings with her a contagious and oft heard laugh which we shall never forget. Krieder, Paul (Krieder) This Paul is an industrious youth with his full share of good looks. These two characteristics will some day bring him to his goal. Leiter, Ralph W. E. (Agricola) This is the class " Goliath. " His hobby is chemistry and he is particularly interested in formulas. Ask him what (NH) stands for. McDannel, Emmert (Mac) In view of his great learning we cannot resist say- ing " And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew that one small head should carry all he knew. " Mehring, Dorothea M. (Dot) finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones and good in everything. Nedrow, E. Paul (Ned) is our representative from New York state.

Wenger, Alvin (Al) easily forgets the petty cares, the dull grim grind of all the day ' s affairs and always takes home a smile. Zercher, Martha (Mart) and her smile are indispensable parts of the class, we could do without neither. She, too, enjoys rides in automobiles. Ziegler, Amnion K. (Zig) is our illustrious president and basket-ball manager. He enjovs good music, his favorite selection is " Ave Marie.

Never tell this young man to hurry hut exercise patience and you will have work done in a most complete and sat- isfactory manner, for he believes in doing things well whatever the cost in time and effort.

She is an industrious lady, you will agree when you learn that her ambition is to finish the course with not less than eighteen units. .Miss Anna says the Latin never bothers her, but the history is awful. In spite of the awful history. Anna usually greets you with a smile, and does the talking for her- self and her sister Ruth. Anna enjoys her course in domestic science immensely, but to our dismay announces that she is going to teach school. We know she will be successful and will find real joy in her work, whatever it may be. I I ' RUTH ' RUTH NISSLEY EBY Mount Joy, Pa. " A spirit as pure as ber ' s.

Upon really learning to know Ruth you will find underneath her quietness, a deep sin- cerity which immediately captures your heart. Who can ascertain just what this young lady should do for her life work? We can recom- mend her as a young lady who always does her work well.

She came to us in the exuberant joy of her girl- hood and we have watched her grow as she crossed the golden threshold of womanhood from which she is emerging a true and noble type of God ' s highest creation. We have seen her pass through the transitional period of lengthening her dresses and putting up her hair. Fate has been kind to give to our class such a loyal, cheerful, and true-hearted lass.

Her coming into a room is like a sudden rush of sunbeams, fl ling the dark corners with light and gladness. Mary wrote the words of our class song. She is a staunch and loyal supporter of all that is noble, good and true, and we are looking for- ward to the day when she will sow these same virtues into the hearts of young America. Her motto seems to be " A laugh is worth a hundred groans in .any market. " Mary has persuaded us that this is true. This young lady has more than one way of getting through life. She may work, laugh or sing her way through. Whichever she chooses we are sure of one thing and that is, that she will get through. We wish her suc- cess. Eighty-five I I ■■Co The Academy The academy is not the child but the mother of the college. Many of her sons and daughters are now in the college or in the alumni. Without the academy or similar institutions, the work at college would be greatly handi- capped. Hosts of great, useful men declare that it was in the preparatory schools that they received the inspiration to continue their education and to prepare themselves for greater fields of service. Beginning with !923- ' 24, our Academy has been organized under the direction of a principal with his special corps of teachers, working under the regular College authorities. The Academy has its own commencement pro- gram. The Elizabethtown Academy offers two four-year courses, the Prepar- atory Classical Course and Preparatory Finance and Commercial Course. These courses are planned to prepare students to enter the classical, scientific, and financial courses of the best colleges and universities of the country. To prepare for college entrance is not the main purpose of the acad- emy. Many students do not plan to contune their work in college. For these the academy days are their last days. The very atmosphere of the school is to broaden the vision of the student that he can see himself in the proper relation- ship with his God, his fellow-man, and his real self. We strive to prepare not only for college, but for life. The school seeks to impress upon the student that good, honest, hard work, coupled with an ambition to be of real service, is one of the most potent factors in developing and fixing character. We realize that there are no quali- ties of the mind or heart, however fine and brilliant, that can fully compensate for lack of disposition to do good, honest, persistent work. Work that is done indifferently or in a slovenly manner is mentally and morally bad for a student, especially in the years that are so full of habit-forming possibilities. A proper appreciation of the value of time, ambition, self-confidence, self-respect, force of will, faithfulness and accuracy in work, love for God and his services, and honor in all things, are the essentials which the academy seeks to infuse into the students ' training. Many a young man learns only by costly experience later in life the value of those elements which ought to have been developed in his formative days — The Academy Days. To the boy who discerns, He can never be " it " Until he develops Some " get up " and " git. " Eighty- -I " £C i i ii Academy Student Body A. P.

Some of the or- ganizations hind together large groups of students by general bonds of inter- est. Such are the Welfare Associations, the Literary Societies, the Chorus Class, and the Student Volunteers. There are small groups also and these do very effective work. Outstanding among these is our Faculty Quartette which is being introduced to you as such for the first time. Student government offers opportunity for developing administrative talent. Our student council members become alert, careful, and conciliating. Students furnish cases for adjustment which baffle their famed tact. " OUR COLLEGE TIMES " challenges the best in literary and business talent. Debating and oratorical contests promote wholesome rivalry which functions in hard work and platform enthusiasm. Special treats from the plat- form occur when great lecturers such as Edgar Guest, Bishop H ughes, and Rus- sell Conwell give forth of their best stores of thought. Domestic Science, Industrial Art, Commerce and Finance appeal to our worthy band of practical people who dare and do. Religious activities are many and provide an atmosphere conducive to the eager pursuit of worth- while tasks from day to day. Ninety I I " i CC- ii 1 1 1 1 I I -IiCC Sewing Department As a College we aim to develop the four-fold life in the lives of our students. And in so doing we value the training along the domestic side of life as well as in many other activities. We are glad to announce that several hundred ladies have completed the sewing course during the last ten years. The aim of this course is to teach the young lady how to cut and how to sew her own garments as well as those of others. Any young lady who has acquired this ability surely feels better equipped to take up her life work than if she were minus this art. Our aim shall always be to implant into the minds of the girls the beauty and the usefulness of the art of sewing. The work that we aim to ac- complish in our class work is the making of essential stitches and seams and their application; also the care and use of the sewing machine. Our course also includes the following: Selection and alteration of tissue paper patterns as well as pattern cutting; plain dress making; cutting and making of Mouses, sim- ple one or two piece under garments, and one piece dresses; shopping hints; shrinking and setting colors in wash fabric; home mending, darning and patch- ing; the making of simple embroidery stitches, and applications; laundering of embroidery pieces; making of house aprons, sweeping caps, and fancy sew- ing aprons; and harmony of dress. The latter enables you to design garments to suit your own or any one else ' s individual type and personality. We also give attention to dresses: style and construction features; but- tons and other trimmings. After accomplishing these features we feel sure that every girl has enough confidence to go out into life putting into practice her knowledge of this course. Looking at the large exhibit, the class this year surely has gone beyond the required amount of their work.

The members of this group are all as eager for the nights of practice as is the director himself, for it is indeed true that every one gets a broader view of music and a better training by singing in a chorus. It likewise develops a taste and a desire for better music.

" The note of rejoicing in the God of their salvation rings clear through all the music of these four Christian men. All the members of the quartette were students when it was o rganized in 19 1 7 . Three of the original members still remain and all are in the faculty. Three of the four men are preachers and the fourth is director of music in the College. The quartette seems to have been divinely guided in its choice of songs. Only such selections as have the purest sentiment and make a universal appeal to the human heart are admitted into their repertoire.

This is Domestic Science and includes Cooking and Dietetics. The department can boast of a splendid working equipment for a number of interested pupils. For those desiring to become trained nurses, for teachers who are in- terested in the school lunch counter, or for any one who is interested in the greatest science of all, that of home-making, this course furnishes a splendid basis. Too much emphasis can not be put upon the proper feeding of the sick or the undernourished child. The course in Dietetics has been designed to meet the need that has arisen along this line in recent years. The interest felt and the results this year were extremely gratifying and the future growth and success of this department looms large. " You may live without music, you may live with out books; But civilized man cannot live without cooks. " Industrial Art Another course added to the curriculum since last year is Industrial Art. The name vaguely suggests the vast fields of knowledge linked together into something definite and tangible. It includes work in reed, raffia, pine needles, wax block-printing, lino- leum-printing, potato-printing, painting, designing, enameling, weaving, mold- ing, and research work in the various fields. The research work enlarges one ' s vision. It gives one a deeper appreciation of the handicaps of primitive man. It links the present definitely with the past. It proves that Industrial Art is not a subject by itself but overlaps various already well established subjects. It reveals the struggle of mankind to supply his needs. It proves that work is honorable and labor should be respected. The link between primitive man and our modern civilization enters into the field of industry, hence the name. As a course in methods it is invaluable for the teacher who has de- spaired of profitable busy work or of bridling the pupil who is a trial. For those interested in Daily Vacation Bible School work it is a great aid. To the future mothers of our land it presents a splendid " rainy day project. " It trains not only the head and hand but also, we believe, the heart; for we must feel a certain satisfying of an inward desire to create something useful and artistic from the commonplace and seemingly useless raw material. Hab- its of thrift and economy are ever inculcated and the utilization of raw material at hand is one of the main ideals ever upheld before the student. Ninety-eight I I •Ii CC- ii Jg.

Since then her mem- bers have been increasing in numbers and this year we have added some espe- cially tine talent from various sections of the country. These have become active and loyal Homerians, and it is hoped that those to whom we leave the work of the Society will ever uphold her colors and live by her motto: " They can who think they can. " The Homerian Literary Society is undoubtedly a worthy institution in E ' town College. Here we receive some of the best and most valuable training for present as well as future service. It is here that practical training is realized in the art of composition, oratory, music, public speaking, parliamentary law, debating, and in the development of social life. The Homerians are continu- ally working toward the improvement of the Society. One phase of improve- ment has been the revision of the constitution of which each member is to have a printed copy. This is certain to help one to become thoroughly acquainted with the workings of the Society, and will also insure better co-operation among the members. Another innovation was the debates held with Ursinus College, Juniata College, and Western Maryland College. The first debate with Ursinus was on the open forum plan which proved to be very successful. The audience decided in favor of our team in both cases. We are hoping that in the future the Homerian Society will continue to be successful in this particular literary work. The question for debate was: " Resolved, that the United States should join the World Court as it is now constituted. " Homerian Anniversary, one of the chief events of every year, was cele- brated in April. The address was given by Dr. Klein, of Franklin and Mar- shall College. Also a special program was rendered at that time. An essay contest, open to Freshmen and Sophomores, aroused great interest. The oratorical contest open to all Homerians was held March 2 8. The orations given were fine productions. This has been a banner year for the Homerian Literary Society and we hope that all who come after fully appre- ciate the advantages offered by the Society, and will work for her welfare in whatever way they can, remembering that " they gain only in proportion as they contribute. Occasionally we enjoy a program of a distinctive type, such as was rendered on February 23. The original pantomime, " Jimmie ' s Experiences at School, " was presented. John Pfoutz represented Jimmie; Etta Davis, Jim- mie ' s mother; Emmert McDannel, Jimmie ' s father. Lydia Landis, Mabel Bom- berger and Paul Nedrow appeared as fellow students with Jimmie. Dorsey Butterbaugh acted as conductor on the train on which Jimmie traveled. A number of students impersonated certain of our professors who were repre- sented as Jimmie ' s teachers. The College song was sung enthusiastically at the close. b I hik c One Hundred ■z«cc I I 1 1 Homerian Literary Society MOTTO— They Can Who Think They Can I I One Hundred One ♦v I !■ £ C m z M l " l Keystone Literal) Society The Keystone Literal} Society was first organized in the Fall of 1902, two years after the founding of the College. It was then the only Literary Society on the Hill. In recent years only academy students have been eligible to the Keystone Society. In 1920, because the Academj was large, and in or- der to give each member a greater opportunity tor development, the society was divided into two parts, viz.. the Penn and the Franklin. Although these soci- eties v ere small, they were very active, competing with each other in oratorical contests, inter-society debates, etc. In 1923 the Academy diminished in en- rollment, and it was deemed advisable to merge the two societies into one and assume the former name of " Keystone Society, " which plan was followed. The membership now consists of forty-eight active members. The Society was founded with the object of attaining the highest possi- bilities in intellectual efficiency and character. This promotes the mental, moral, and social culture of her members. Programs are rendered every week, every other one being open to the public. Each member has the privilege ol serving .1 number of times on these programs. This gives training in public speaking, reading, debating, and gen- eral oratory. Here also is an opportunity tor the development of musical talent, since both vocal and instrumental music are features of the programs. By the practice of parliamentary law in every meeting a good knowledge of this is acquired by every student, which also is a great asset. The motto of the Society, " Excelsior, " which is expressive of her high standard, has been made practical and the results can only be measured by observing the achievements of those who have gone out into the public ser- vice of various types. The following program, which was given on January 12, 1924, is typi- cal of the various programs given throughou; the year: Song, •■Long, Long Ago ' Society Inaugural Address, " The Betterment of the Society " Robert Meckley Vocal Duet, " O!

A — Oh, that ' s right. 1 recall I had a card before I got here, asking me to let them know how and when I expect to arrive so 1 let them know and when I stepped from the train they had two representatives there with a car to meet me. B — Is that so? Well, since I come to think of it, they didn ' t know I was coming; so, of course, they couldn ' t do that for me.

Anions " ie extra-curricular activities none attracted so much attention nor aroused quite so much enthusiasm on the part of students and their friends this year as debating. This activity was revived after a year ' s experience a few years ago, when the dual debate was held. Our scedule, as indicated, includ- ed the strong teams of three of our sister colleges. The record which we have attained speaks well for our entrance into this activity and augurs well for the growth and development of this work in future years. Two types of debating were followed. In the Ursinus dual debate, the Open Forum plan was used. This plan of debating is common in English colleges and universities. The object, in this type, is to convince the audience of the merits of the side of the question one is upholding. At Elizabethtown, Miss Trimmer, and Messrs Eshelman and Bietsch upheld the affirmative; and Messrs. Haines, Weiler and Dietz, the negative. At Ursinus, the affirmative was argued by Messrs. Buyer, Herber and Christman; the negative, by Messrs. Frey, Stover and Madeira. By the mutual exchange of speakers a decision by the audience on the question was assured and a decision prompted by school allegiance was avoided. At Ursinus the vote stood 42 to 28 in favor of the negative, while at Elizabethtown the audience favored the affirmative, 96 to 62. The Juniata debate and the Western Maryland dual debate followed the usual American plan in which the question is argued before three judges and a decision subsequently rendered by them on the merits of the arguments advanced. The decision in the Juniata debate was 2 to 1 in favor of the affir- mative. The lateness of the date for the Western Maryland debate prevents any record of results at the time of going to press. The successes achieved by our debaters were due primarily to three things. First among these was intensive preparation and thorough comprehen- sion of the subject. This was accomplished, in part, by free, open discussion of the question by the members of the squad in informal meetings of frequent occurrence. The second factor was the careful preparation of the constructive speeches and the fluency and conviction with which they were delivered. The third factor contributing to our success was skill in refutation. It is in rebuttal, after all, where the actual skill and ingenuity of the debater are taxed and the facility which our teams displayed along this line made them virtually invin- cible. Other contributing factors, also, were the faithful assistance of the members of the squad not on the teams — in discussion, criticism, and scrim- mage — the careful coaching by the Committee consisting of Professors Harley, Hotter and Schlosser, and the co-operation and school spirit shown by the faculty and the student-body. WESTERN MARYLAND VS. ELIZABETHTOWN Those debating for Elizabethtown were — AfT. Mary Baugher John Trimmer Elmer S. Eshelman Lester Royer, Alt. Neg.

One Hundred Ten ■ i :■ cc- ii 4 ° -.H- II ■ i r-C -■ C C m h Religious Activities I We believe in a foursquare development of our lives, therefore we are ■ ■ mindful of a very important side of the square; namely, our religious life. Five morning ' s in the week we feast at our school altar, at which times our teachers give us of their best. The chapel services have been especially interesting this year and if any of us should stray from the pathway in which we should walk it will not be because of lack of instruction and helpful sugges- tions of our beloved teachers. In our chapel talks we receive not only Biblical instruction but talks on morals and ethics. It is in these chapel talks that we really learn to know and appreciate those who are giving so much for us. Every Wednesday evening we have our weekly prayer meeting. Im- mediately after supper the students assemble in the chapel and engage in a sea- son of song in connection with our prayer meeting. Throughout the school year various students take charge of these meetings and we have very many helpful suggestions given by the leaders, by other students who have been as- signed various parts and by those who speak extemporaneously. In chapel we learn to know and appreciate our teachers; in prayer meeting we learn to know, appreciate, and feel with one another. Here we draw together as one group of God ' s children. We feel we gain inspiration and are better fitted for problems after attending the midweek prayer meeting and that a large vacancy would exist in our lives if the midweek prayer meeting were removed. Every two weeks we have Christian Workers ' Meeting " and Church in the college chapel on Sunday evening. The students make the Christian Work- ers ' programs very interesting, educational, and inspiring. The church services are in charge of college professors, town ministers and others. Many helpful suggestions for better living have been given in these meetings. By no means do our religious activities end on College Hill. Every Sunday groups of students can be seen leaving for the outpost school at New- ville. This work is greatly appreciated and we feel it is definite work tnward the furtherance of God ' s Kingdom here among men. INDIANAPOLIS CONVENTION This year we had an unusual experience, an experience which comes but once in the life of the college student. It was our privilge to hear reports from the World Student Volunteer Conference held every four years. This year the conference was held at Indianapolis, Indiana. Our school was repre- sented by Ada Young, Vera Hackman, Francis Barr, Dorsey Butterbaugh, S. G. Fahnestock and Prof. R. W. Schlosser who brought back stirring reports from messages delivered by Dr. Robert E. Speer, Dr. John R. Mott, Dr. Aggrey, Dr. Sherwood Eddy, Robert P. Wilder and many others. Some of the problems discussed were " Racial Discrimination, " " War " and other vital problems in the life of today. There were messengers from Latin America, Africa, China, India, prac- tically all the countries. A few of the rare gems received were: " Be still and know that I am God " — Dr. Kennedy. " America is the optimist, Europe the pessimist " — Dr. Keller. Contrasting the whites with the blacks, Dr. Aggrey from Africa said: " Some are for war, we are for peace One Hundred Twelve I I I !■ C C m l h Some are for hate, we are for love Some are for sorrow, we are for laughter Some are for despair, we are for hope I And when the last car comes in we ' ll have a contribution to bring too. " " Clearer vision purifies the motive. " — Dr. Watson. " The man of power is one who finds out how to translate this power into daily action. " — Dr. Wood. Our delegates say it was a mountain top experience in their lives and we, the student body, feel we have received a great help from their reports. STUDENT VOLUNTEER CONFERENCE, LANCASTER, PA. Every year there is a conference of the Student Volunteers of the Col- leges of Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. This year the conference con- vened at Franklin and Marshall College and the Reformed Theological Semi- nary in Lancaster. On account of the nearness many of our students were privileged to attend at least part time. The following went as delegates from the school: Ethel Wenger, Kath- ryn Zug, Etta Roop, Margaret Cosner, Mary Snyder, Lillian Becker, Ruth Boyd, Melvin Shisler, Rufus Eby, and Walter Bergey. All those who attended felt more than repaid for having gone. The main theme of the conference was: " What the World Needs " and it was grati- fying tcf know that not only religious leaders but national leaders are saying that the need is Jesus Christ and more trust and faith in the infallible Word of God. BIBLE INSTITUTE Once every year we go to the mountain top for a season of refresh- ing. This annual occasion is the week of our Bible Institute. This year we had for our main speakers Elder Warren Slabaugh of Bethany Bible School, Elder C. D. Bonsack of Elgin, Illinois, and Elder James M. Moore of Waynes- boro. Isaiah Oberholtzer, a returned missionary from China and an alumnus of our school, gave missionary talks and showed very interesting and thought- provoking slides on life and conditions existing in China. Kathryn Zeigler, a returned missionary from India, gave us new visions concernnig the India field. A few of the striking statements were: " You don ' t lose what you give away; " " Sin is to forget God; " " Stewardship began with Adam; " " Jesus didn ' t argue, he didn ' t need to argue, he didn ' t bring a library to prove his Deity, he lived a real life that told enough and there is none better, there is no better witness than our daily life. " " .lesus recognized his earthly duty, even on the cross, because there he provided for his mother; " " Too many of us ask God to change his plans to please us, rather than to change us to tit his plan. " We who attended this week of Biblical instruction and missionary en- lightenment, realize how much we would have missed if we could not have attended. We were pleased to have many from the local congregations of our district attend these sessions. The special missionary, Sunday School, and educational programs were fraught with inspiration and provided practical in- struction as well. One Hundred Thirteen I I -!■£■:- The Student Volunteers The Student Volunteers are a group who are very busy in a quiet way doing their best to be helpful. Among them are found students who are plan- ning for very definite work in some foreign field; also some who are planning to work for Christ right at their own doors, serving as home missionaries. All of these aim to work according to God ' s plan for their lives. The Volunteers send out deputation teams to the various churches which express a desire for their service. The programs rendered consist of songs, readings, and discussions. The following topics indicate the nature of the programs rendered: Evangelism, Social Purity, The Ideal Home, Missions, Stewardship, and Temperance. Those who speak on these programs are de- vout Christian workers who are full of their messages. We are quite sure that the Volunteers play a very definite and active part in our college life. They meet weekly and inspire one another through programs, studies in missions, and talks received from speakers of broad re- ligious experience. Prominent among the speakers who have brought rich messages were C. D. Bonsack, secretary of our General Mission Board; L. S. Brubaker, traveling secretary of the Student Volunteers of the Church of the Brethren; and Rev. Downing, a returned missionary from the African Inland Mission. Members of the faculty, missionaries on furlough, and others have also given helpful talks. The Volunteers desire that every student on College Hill may be defi- nitely enlisted in the Master ' s cause to the end that the living Christ may be- come a constant dynamic in their useful lives. They are eager for the closest co-operation with our constituency in order that the ideals of the Master Teacher may be extended to the uttermost parts of the world. Another phase of religious opportunity is the Volunteer library table on which are found books written by the best missionary leaders, also a number of magazines and periodicals of great interest to mission workers together with a large variety of missionary tracts and leaflets. The mission study book used during the second semester is " Contact with Non-Christian Cultures. " This is a case book on missions and is rich in examples of problems that daily confront the missionary in applying the prin- ciples and spirit of Christianity in the lands of deeply rooted customs, ceremo- nies, and beliefs. The book throws valuable light on the problems that the prospective missionary will face in the near future and will better qualify the volunteer for this noble task.

This education is to be so interrelated that it will provide a strong foundation and a structure which will render service and satisfaction throughout the Academy life, the college life, and finally the home life of the student. For this reason the course offers the following advantages: 1. It assists the student in earning his way through college. He can finish his college course free of debt. 2. It will help the student to apply his theory by meeting the hard practical problems. It will give him a different vision of college life. 3. It will help the student to find his life work more readily. He will not spend thousands of dollars for his education and at the end of his college course find that he is not fitted for a particular position in life. 4. The college, in close co-operation with business men, will see the need of business firms, the weaknesses of its students, and adapt its curriculum accordingly. 5. The business firms in close co-operation with the college will get in touch with the possibilities of the different students and thus assist them in selecting the best for their various positions. 6. It will not disorganize the business firms nor the college by mak- ing an annual rotation. 7. The business firms will be benefited by starting the student in the lowest position and gradually promoting him to higher positions. By the time the student is through college he knows the business from beginning to end. The student will bring back from college new ideas for the advancement of the business firm. S. It will keep the student from accepting a position and staying in the same position without any development to himself or to the firm. 9. It will unify salaries. Firms will pay according to ability and services rendered. Those who deserve more will get more. Those who de- serve less will get less. 10. It will keep the student in touch to a mature age with college life and business life until he is capable of operating a business and passing good judgment. It will not give the firm green, immature help in responsible posi- tions. 11. It will avoid embarrassment to the student when he is through college by starting at the very bottom in his business practice. He takes theory and practice together. 12. It will make a well balanced product by developing the student mentally, physically, and spiritually in both his theory and practice courses until his habits are thoroughly formed. One Hundred Twenlv ■•CO 13. It will develop in the student body, thrift, ambition, and a vision of service. 14. It opens to the student larger possibilities and sets before them the goal to be reached from the very beginning of their college life. 15. The students get in touch with broad-minded business men who will assist them in college life. 16. This plan is flexible. Any business course may be completed in three, four, five, six or seven years ' time, depending upon the number of prac- tice courses taken and the time spent in summer session. Commercial Teacher Training at E. C. As the vision of our college sages was enlarged they recognized one of the big needs of the community and of the educational world as a whole — ■ the need for a training school for commercial teachers. The fact that Eliza- bethtown College stands for the highest, tinest, and noblest type of religious and social training makes her peculiarly fitted for the training of commercial teachers. Teachers of commercial subjects in high schools reach the one class of students most likely to need the influence of high ideals and the helpful guidance in right thinking which the carefully trained teacher can give. Too often the pupils who come into the commercial department of a high school are from the poorest classes in the community, in which the idea of money getting either because of need or of ignoranc is the chief aim of the student. It is the privilege and duty of the teacher in the commercial course to lay the foundation for higher ideals; to train the pupil for true, unselfish, and efficient service and at the same time displace the thought of earning only by the nobler one of serving well. Most humbly we recognize the difficulties en- countered in training those who shall, in turn, give training, and we know all too well that such a task is possible of accomplishment only when all con- cerned work together eagerly, enthusiastically and prayerfully " toward our goal. This is the ambition of our Commercial Teachers Training Depart- ment: to turn from our doors as graduates young people who are thoroughly equipped in the subject matter; who have strong personalities; who will be worthy leaders in their schools; who are gentle and courteous in manner and behavior since they must be examples for pupils at the most impressionable age; and who are faithful, courageous, and ambitious since they hope to in- culcate ideals of faith, courage, and ambition in the young lives they influence. In a word, we hope to train true men and women of high ideals and abilities " who have the vision and the faculty divine to view the world with spirit- One Hundred Twenty-one I -:i£c To the Alumni ' m l rwt ? is more than a rare privilege for the Class of ' 24 to have such a dis- tinguished Alumni to whom we may look as examples in life ' s activities. We feel sure that the world would not have discovered some of its best folks and some of its best offices and positions would not have been tilled had not Eliza- bethtown sent forth a group of loyal workers who always hold as their ideal, " Educate for Service. " To you, as Alumni, the school is greatly indebted for making possible the purchase of the thirty-acre held for recreation purposes and such other uses as the future growth of the College may demand. This field was pur- chased by the Board of Trustees in the spring of 192 3 with funds received from the Alumni Association.

I am the foundation of a successful life. I am a power ethereal. I am so necessary to your existence that it is impossible for you to separate your- self from me.

I prevent nervous prostration, indigestion, and insanity, as well as all other ravages of the body and mind. I make you strong. I give you a vibrant body and a dynamic mind. I am an angel of happiness. I build up moral qualities and through me you may attain soul supremacy. 1 teach men to overcome difficulties, to face grave danger with a smiling face. I develop self-control. I show the value of clean habits and a pure life. I do all that my name implies. 1 build up what the drums and tramp- lings of life ' s tasks break down. 1 truly re-create the bodies and minds of humanity. Come, all ye who are weak and sick in body and mind, and 1 will make you strong. Come, ye who are discouraged, ye who have no enthusiasm for life, and I will resuscitate your spirits and invigorate life. I AM THE SPIRIT OF RhXREATION. I I One Hundred Tli ent }-eighl ■IiCC- I I I I II « I I r-C !■ C C Zl h Athletics Jr ■ Throughout the school year we have had among the entire student body a feeling that physical exercise is one of the essential, if not the most essential, phase in an educational career. Consequently there was a need for the de- velopment of a proper attitude toward this division of school activity. How- ever great care has been shown in determining how much exercise is needed in order to maintain sufficient bodily vigor and at the same time to hold the scholastic attainment of the individual in the foreground. The true sportsman will enter into any kind of athletics wholeheart- edly. By playing the game hard he will obtain the greatest amount of value in any game, both from a physical and mental standpoint. This is very evi- dent when we consider any form of group game which requires considerable co-operation among the individual players to insure victory. In this very idea there is something that readily can be applied to every-day life. We believe that every member of a student body needs some form of physical exercise. Bodily decay and reconstruction are taking place contin- ually. Therefore if we wish to establish a four square educational platform we must not fail to take into the structure a well founded conception of physi- cal education. We Americans need to stop and step aside from our daily routine of every-day life and engage in something that will tend to give poise to our bod- ily systems. Basket Ball Long before this season had fully arrived we heard Freshmen, Sopho- mores, Juniors and Seniors plotting among themselves to decide upon the " sig- nals " and " passes " which they expected to use during the coming season. The classes met and organized teams by going through the usual process of substi- tution and elimination. Practice began. Unusual spirit was shown on both girls ' and boys ' teams. These teams practiced early and late. Even before sunrise we could hear the steady thump of the basket-ball on the gymnasium floor. If Long- fellow would be living these days he might have received his inspiration from these athletes when he wrote and said: " The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight. But they while their companions slept were toiling upward in " the night. " Soon a series of games was scheduled and the games were of the type that would stir the blood of any college tosser. Every team was ready to begin the game with intense spirit. Every player was out to win. Good sportsman- ship was not lacking. No matter whether the team won a victory or went down to defeat, when all differences were settled every player had gained something for having been in the game.

A few among the number however were seasoned players. Activity in this sport began at once. Opposing teams were chosen at random for some time in order to discover the nature of the players on the hill. In a short time Senior, Junior, Sophomore, and Freshmen teams were organized. The manager saw tit to choose teams that would represent the separate classes in this sport. Owing to the condition of the diamond which is now located on the new athletic field purchased by the Alumni, these games which were about to be scheduled could not be finished. The baseball enthusiasts helped to grade and level the diamond which required much time. When this was finished the season was late and so the games were called off. A very interesting baseball season is now on. Tennis Tennis is a major sport of the school. Immediately after school opened tennis was in full swing. Every student, whether amateur or experi- enced, was in the game to win. This was the first year that all the players could be accommodated. Six new courts were added to the four we already had. Keen interest was shown throughout the entire season. After a few weeks had passed tournaments were scheduled. This led to added interest and competition. For good, wholesome sport and exercise this game is one of the best. It is evident this year that students have recognized the fact for the tennis schedule was entirely tilled when the weather was favorable.
