The common interests which all of you shared in the various class duties and school activities during these happy years have formed numerous bases for enduring friendships. From your happy contacts with the faculty, the student body and especially with each other as a class, you have gathered many lasting impressions. These brief years of earnest endeavor and happy fellowship surely will afford you many pleasant life memories. In the numerous class activities which you as a group have fostered, you have found opportunity to exercise charity and forbearance with one another. To abide faithfully and loyally by the action of the majority has been the principle on which your class actions have been conducted. The ability to make such adjustments to environment is in a large sense the measure of one ' s capacity for service in the numerous situations met in later life. To the extent that you have exer- cised the principle of adjustment in the spirit of cooperation with your fellows, you have practiced the type and form of relationship which you will need to exercise in the experiences that you will face in the coming years. Our associations with you have been very pleasant. We have mingled feelings at the thought of your leaving. You have eagerly awaited the opportunity to take the responsibilities of the untried future which lies ahead. Your chosen fields of endeavor will challenge your best efforts to do well the work which you have decided to undertake. Your triumphs in the course of proper endeavor shall make us glad also. Your griefs and sorrows can not remain unshared by us. The keen appreciation of the deeper things of life which you have displayed during these years of happy school life, leads us to believe that you will not expect a life of continuous calm or ease. The tasks ahead will test your power of endurance and your capacity for graceful and harmonious adjustment without the sacrifice of any fundamental principles. As the years of experience will add to your wisdom, you will expect to be misunderstood at times when in your opinion there is the least cause for it. May we say in the words of another " Accustom yourself to injustice. " We have faith in you that in your chosen fields of endeavor you shall constantly live in har- mony with the straight edge of equity, exercise a keen sense of justice, manifest the mellow spirit of meek- ness and practice in sincerity the sound principles of righteousness, mercy and charity. In all your choices may you ever place first things first. We urge you again to follow unashamed and unafraid Him who came to become the Way, the Truth and the Life, keeping yourself in harmony with the will of God. May you find life radiant through the glow and glory of goodness in His service. Re- member that the largest conduct assets are attained by those who serve the best. Strive constantly to be a master in the Kingdom of Life. As students here you now receive our words of farewell. Your past attitude forms the basis for our firm belief in your constant loyalty to your Alma Mater. We bespeak for you a long and joyful life spent in the happy service of your fellow-men throughout a useful career. We pray the Fathers choicest blessings upon you as you go. May you always have the " peace that passes understanding. " May yours be the inheritance of the pure in heart, so that when at last you come to the close of your earthly career you may face the golden glow of life ' s sunset in the hope of a glorious and happy eternal Dawn.

So few our years here spent now seem. As this has been our last. But though those happy hours arc gone. And though we soon must part; Yet fond their memories will remain, And added strength each year will gain. In every heart. Youth is spring time; spring time ' s flow ' r time; Youths the flower time of life, That decides if we ' ll be heroes Or be failures in the strife. But E. C. out — Burbanks Burbank Better flowers in attaining. As human lives excel the (lowers So our school ' s work above his towers. In the good we ' re gaining. We never fully can repay. The values here we gain, Butif wc use them wisely ' Twill not have been in vain. And if our talents for service used. Another ' s cares beguile. If we can aid a needing friend, A helping hand to others lend. Life ' s been worth while. Life ' s a vast uncharted sea, Whereon we now set sail. May lessons learned here be as beacons To guide our barks so frail. And if we take the only Pilot Who knows each shoal and tide, He ' ll guide our way with faultless hand. We ' ll anchor safely in the strand, Beyond life ' s ocean wide. So now perforce we bid farewell, And cast our books aside. For greater duties lie before us In an open world and wide. Yet whatever our ambitions Whatc ' er our goals may be. We ' ll ne ' er forget, though years may Hy, Those happy scenes of davs gone bv ■ In the halls of old E.G. :29i TTV OHSMOND lilTTINGER " hat high cause this darling ot " Who can iorcti the gods was bornr ' ' ' Desmond hails from West Virginia. He is one of the outstanding members of the Class of 1927, having dis- tinguished himself in many of the various activities of the school. He is an industrious and diligent student, hut particularly in the field of Christian activity does Desmond shine. He has had a great deal of pastoral and evangelistic experience. Serving as leader of both the Volunteers and Y. M. C. A. on College Hill, he has helped to make them the active organizations they now are. But vocalization is par excelltuce this ' Oung man ' s forte. His melodious bass voice assists in making the Chorus Class more easily heard, and together with his " line, " has many a time " brought home the bacon " for E. C. ' s forensic warriors. But he is not always serious, he always carries a cheery smile right with him, and is every ready for a good, hearty laugh. From all accounts, our hero ' s matrimonial prospects arc very well established, and it is only a question of time. Desmond expects to teach for a few years, and then go to Africa as a missionary— and he will not go alone. With his high Christian ideals and his spirit of unselfish service, he is assured of boundless success in his work for the Master. Activities: President, Volunteers (3); President, Y. M. C. . . ' [A ' }. ' ice President, Class (3); Debating (1, 3, 4); Chorus; Religious Editor, Etonian. AARON G. BREIDENSTINE " Melodies so rich and rare, Beating on the quiet air. " " Bridy " is the songbird of thctlass. Fairvicw . part- nicnts has often reverberated to his tuneful melodies, and the College Quartet and the Chorus Cass count him as an indispensable member. But this is only one of the many activities in which Aaron is engaged. His quiet dignity and sincerity have won for him the respect of all. As President of the Men ' s Welfare Association he has well upheld the spirit and the traditions of E. C. His literary talents won for him a place on the staff of " Our College Times, " and were further shown in his successful tenure of the Presidency of the Literary Society. A very studious young man is " Bridy. " He has a good " drag " with all the teachers. In a social way, " Bridy " prefers Orange Street, and perhaps " Orange-Blossom " -time is not far away. Mr. Brcidcnstine, erstwhile " Bridy, ' " expects to enter the teaching profession. He is chiefly interested in science. The Class of ' 27 are one in wishing him a brilliant success. Activities: President, Men ' s Welfare Association (4); Class President (2); College Quartet, Chorus; Reporter, " Our College Times " (2, 4); President, Literary Society (4); Music Editor, Etonian.  rox:iA r TJ 7 FANNY BRUBAKER A. B. in Eaucation None named her but to praii This fair young lady joined our ranks in the Junior year. She is a graduate of Millcrsville State Normal School and has already had ir successful years in " train- ing the young idea to shoot. " Fanny is a lass of unusual grace, poise, and gentle manner; of few words and many deeds. With her char- acter above reproach, and her patient and untiring efforts for the welfare of other s, she has revealed to us what true altruism is. With her many responsible extra-curricular duties, she still finds time to get her work accomplished and in even ahead of time and to paint delightful little scenes, for she is quite an artist. Just as she is active in her duties, so she is active when any fun is on foot, and we know of many jokes she has played on her schoolmates. Nor is she wanting in athletics. She is an excellent basketball player. Fanny ' s life purpose is to become a mission worker in India; and her genial disposition and her activities here at College show her to be well suited for such a mission. The best wishes of your classmates go with you, Fanny, wherever duty calls. Activities: President, Young Women ' s Welfare .Association, Treasurer, Student N ' oluntecrs; . rt Editor, Etonian; Member, Senior-Junior Basketball Team. MELVIN BRUBAK.ER A. B. in Education Quarryville, P.i. He ' s married; what of that? Melvin entered Elizabcthtown College as a Spring Normal student in 1925. He spent the summers of ' 25 and ' 26 at E ' town. He joined our class at the opening of the senior year. He is an alumnus of Quarryville High School, ' 19, and of Millersville Normal, ' 24. He has had four years of teaching experience, two of them being in a high school. Melvin is married and has a cozy " lo Fairview Apartments. His he evidence of Mrs. Brubaker ' s culinary skill. Mr. Brubaker always has his lessons well prepared. His class recitations reflect a mind that is grounded on common sense. What ever he says carries weight with it. Above all we admire him for his unassuming con- nest in I appearance gi ' As an athlete, Melvin was one of the regulars on the Volley Ball team, a member of the Basketball squad, and a weight man in Track. His ability in all these sports was a big element in the strength of the senior teams. Activities: Manager, Speed Ball, Vollev Ball, President, Men ' s Student Council, Etonian StalT.  In size and strength he is somewhat of ; and basketball. RAYMOND BRUBAKER B. S. Quarryvillc, Pa. Here ' s one who ' s big in every way And good at study, work, or play. • Bud, " as we all call him, is one of the group of gentle- men of the class who go home every week end for some " lovely " reason. " Bud " is expected to be one of the first to bring his affairs to a climax. We hope that he will enjoy marriage as well as he is enjoying college. Raymond, like his brother, took his undergraduate work at Millersville Normal School and at Elizabethtown College during spring and summer terms. He joined our class as a senior. He is specializing in science. His habits of patient inquiry, industry, and opcn-mindcdness will go far toward making him the successful scientist we expect him to become. That he has a strong mentality was shown bv his ability to expound the Einstein theory in physcis. superman. " . s an athlete he starred in tennis, volley ball.

" The class of ' 27 is indeed fortunate in having as a member this able young lady from Chester County. As supervisor of the Rural School Department of Millers- ville State Normal School, of which she is an alumna, she has obtained a year ' s leave of absence to complete her college work; and we are, indeed, glad that she has chosen E ' town in which to do it. Anna is a leader, finding her place as readily as water finds its level. One reason for this is seen in the words of one of her classmates when speaking of her, " When she has a thing to do, she goes at it as though it were the most important thing in the world at the time. " Whole- hearted aptly describes her. Anna is ambitious and generous. Upon being asked her aims she promptly replied, " Become a multi-million; mood she aspires to a Masters Degree at Columbia, then to trav take, Anna, you have the best wishes of your class for success.

DOTTERER A. B. York, Pa. " Bob " is the most characteristically " collegiate " of the gentlemen of the class. He has had a wide experience and is quite a " connoisseur " of men and affairs. He is rather a belated member of our class, having entered at the opening of the second semester of the senior year. We were glad to have him join the class because, as an athlete, he is sure to strengthen our athletic teams. His ability to entertain the boys in Room 206 is also quite an asset.

" A man so brilliant and so bright Who ' s bound to reach some unfamcd height. " Eli is a character without limits. There is no limit to the amount of sleep he can lose; none to the number of glasses of water he can drink or the slices of bologna he can eat; none to the number of facts he has stored in his mind; none to his intelligence; none to his debating ability; and above all, none to the achievements yet in store for him. He represents the summum brjnum (the best brains) of a brainy class. Three years he has been on the renowned Elizabethtown College debating teams. Eli is the best (and only) musician in the senior class, being a talented performer on the mouth organ, violin, and piano. Socially, he is the best representative of the so-called unengaged clique of the senior fellows, which specialized in Freshman girls. His ability to liven up a group makes hin always been a feature of the class banquets. While he is not a regular performer on any of the athletic i reserve and as a cheerleader.

" Ladies and gentlemen, now vc introduce to you the most handsome member of a very handsome class. " Esh " is our sheik; the girls fall either for him or his Buick, or both. This busy young man has varied in- terests; just now his chief interest seems to be somewhere near Mount Joy. " Esh " devotes a generous share of his time to school affairs, and he can be counted upon at any time to lend a helping hand or a helping Buick. In fact, he seems to have a monopoly of transporting the debating teams. But he is also possessed of a great deal of business acumen, and as treasurer of our class and Assistant Business Manager of the Etonian, showed his financial ability. The esteem in which he is held is evidenced by his selection as President of Student Council, and the Literary Society. " .■ rt " is concentrating on science. And some day the graduates of ' 27 w ill wake up to (ind themselves the classmates of a distinguished scientist. Activities: Class Treasurer (2); President, Student Council (4); President, Litcrarv Society (4), Assistant Business Manager, Etonian. PAULINE GREENE A. B. in Liberal Arts Harrishurg, Pa. " Charms strike the eye, But merit wins the soul " This tall, dignified lass seems especially blessed by Providence as she has both the charms and the merit. " Polly " is one of the few of our class who has been fortunate enough to spend four years at E ' town, and during that time she has proved herself such an asset that E ' town will sorely miss her when she goes.

We arc delighted to have them as members of our class but regret that they could not be with us during the senior year. They both grad- uated from Millcrsville Normal School in 1925. They attended the summer term of ' 26 at Elizabethtown College. By their sociability they both became verv popular among the student body. Each sang in the College Quartet, Howard baritone and Ray bass. Scholastically, Howard ranks as a very good stu- dent. He takes a deep interest in his studies and always is ready to take his part in cl ss recitations. Of course, like every other good senior, he had his moments of difficulty in philosophy.

They are an interesting pair, always livening the crowd in which they are by their clever jokes. In addition to his many other accomplishments Ray was quite a " shark " in zoology last summer. At least he kept the class awake by a witty remark just at the moment when everybody was becoming supersaturated with worms, jelly-fish, pcrifcra, ct cetera.

She was here last simimer, however, and those who know her best say that she then showed a peculiar fondness for Sweitzer cheese. Millie is a splendid " all around " girl, and is very well liked by those who know her. She is a good student and is especially fond of sports and outdoor life. Tennis, hiking, and camping are all favorites with her. The future possibilities of this young lady are very promising.

But being ambitious and believing in making the most of her opportunities she joined our class in its search for further knowledge. The first semester of this year she spent at Susquehanna University, but- fortunately she came back to us for the final stretch. Being a teacher in college places her above the rest of us and makes her one to be looked up to. Not only this fact but the good qualities which go to make up her character and her ability would cause us to do so. Nevertheless her genial disposition and generous nature have made us feel that she is one of us. .Mways ready with a cheering word or a helping hand she has won the esteem of all and none deserves it more than she. Loyal to her friends, true to her sense of duty, determined for right and justice, we are sure that none is better fitted for the duties of life than she. Whatever field she may choose in life, she has the sincere wishes of the class for continued success and happiness.  SAMUEL S.

Besides pulling As and A + ' sin all his classes, he finds time to participate w holchcartcdly in extracurricular activity. As President of the Class, he has piloted our Ship of State safely across the seas of Seniorhood to the harbor of graduation. He is also one of our star debaters, and as manager of debate, has arranged the most ambitious schedule ever attempted at E. C. Sam is quite a versatile athlete, too, as will be evident on scrutiny of the Seniors ' teams in the inter- class contests. Nor does he neglect social-ology — ask the Freshman girls. We are expecting great things from Sam. Who knows but that it is he who is destined to make our class famous?

CHARLES C. YOUNG " It is not good for man, that he should live alorn., therefore " " Charlie " firmly believes the foregoing adage, and so on his arrival at E. C. in the fall of 1925 to join our class, he made all possible haste to take unto himself a bride The first semester was scarcely over, when we were agreeably sur prised to learn of his success — we did not know he was such a fast worker. This is a wonderful attribute to his energy and resourcefulness. Mr. Young had wide experience in teaching and business before he joined our class. He is very practical and original in the classroom discussions, and has the courage of his convictions. Whatever Charlie does, he believes in doing well. He is a trustworthy and industrious stu- dent and classmate, and he has won a firm place in our hearts. Guiding young America in the paths of education is his chosen ambition.

During the summers he engaged in road construction, in which he was unusually successful. Zig is also an athlete of no mean repute, having incon- demonstrated his prowess in basketball, baseball, and field events. In fact, he was the mainstay of the Defense Corps of the Senior basketball team this year.

She never found the best too good. " This talented lady joined our class on the home run — the second semester of our Senior year. We are indeed glad that her home run landed her here. Miss Hoffmeicr is a graduateof the Millcrsville State Normal School and has taken work at several other schools, coming here from " Penn State. " She has. been in the teaching field for several years, having taught in the Lancaster City Schools and later became a primary supervisor .n the same system. Whenthe Millcrsville Training School needed a good, live, up-to-date third grade supervisor, they did not need to go far for they found these qualifications in Miss Hoffmeicr of Lancaster. Although Miss Holfmeier has not been with us long she has endeared herself to the class of ' 27 because of her general interest in matters on the hill, her willingness to help where needed, and especially because of her " pep " and enthusiasm. The saying, " Where there ' s a will there ' s a way " applies very aptly to this member of our class. It has been true to her in the past, and we know it will be true in the future. The best wishes of the class of ' 27 go with her.  i£ . Class History " The days are maJcoii a loom whereof the warp and woof are pasc and future time. " It is my purpose here to sketch in a few words some of the outstanding figures and lines of the fabric woven on the loom of life by the class of ' 27 during its four year sojourn at Elizabethtown College. It seems that from the beginning our class realized with Whitticr that " The tissue of the life to be Vc weave with colors all our own, And in the field of Destiny We reap as we have sown. " For from the very first its various members, each imbued with his own peculiar importance, strove to weave in colors that would not fade and to sow a crop that we should he proud to reap. And our success in these efforts, even in our freshest days, won for us recognition as a strong class. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to have been with the class from the beginning recall the trip to Williamson ' s Park by auto as one of tfie outstanding class social events of the Freshman year. The Sophomore year found the class fully adapted to college life, ready and willing to put into it the best that they had, and likewise, to get out of it the joys and benefits it has to offer. A trip to Caledonia Park and a sleigh-ride to Mount Joy capped with a chicken and waffle dinner arc some of the fond memories of that year. Our Junior year opened with the class considerably reduced in number due to many of its members wanting some experience in teaching " the young idea how to shoot " before taking their degree, with the result that today the large majority of our class are already experienced teachers. Nevertheless, those of us who remained endeavored to bear high the standards of the class. Some of the memorable class social events of that year were the social at Kcnnewood Tea Room and the spring outing to Crystal Cave, Kutz- town, by auto. Cupid, too, was exceptionally busy in our class this year as it witnessed the wedding of one of our members, the betrothal of a second, and bright prospects for a third, and perhaps, even a fourth. This made the reception given by the Juniors to the Seniors in the Spring especially interesting as the hymeneal connections were all with that class. These years were years of growth and development, of struggle and triumphs, when we were uncon- sciously improving step by step, becoming more and more a factor in the life of the college, and eagerly looking forward to that time when we should come together as Seniors. That day duly arrived. September 7th found us wending our way to the College eager to be together again as a class and to reassumc our duties on College Hill. Our ability as well as number was greatly increased by the new students who joined our ranks. With our added dignity as Seniors came new responsibilities. It was ours to help and encourage underclassmen, ours to be an example of what is expected of students in college life, ours not only to main- tain the standards of the past but to bear them ever higher. Our first class social event of the year was the banquet at Oaklyn Tea House where a chicken and waffle dinner shared with invited guests, toasts, games, and prophecies by our class adviser, Professor Schlosser, filled an all too short evening which still lingers in our memories. The following week Miss Bull entertained the class and another happy and never to be forgotten evening was added to our list of memories. The week after our first semester " exams " were over a Senior tea in the reception room of the College made us forget that there ever were such things as " exams. " These are only a few of the social activities which helped to link us closer together as a class. Ours is a class of which wc can be justly proud: Strong athletes, holding their own in volley ball and basket ball, and so strong that the underclassmen (brave as they are) dared not accept our challenge to a tug of war; debaters who have helped make Elizabethtown College famed for its debating; dramatic and oratorical ability; scholarship par excellence; and in all noble sentiments and lofty ideals and aspirations. May these ideals and aspirations never grow dim but continue to develop; may we, ever bear ing in mind that " We build the ladder bv which wc climb, " press nobly onward and upward, and in the spirit of Him who " came not to be ministered unto, but to minister " may wc each grow as did Tennyson ' s van- ished friend " Not alone in power And knowledge, but by year and hour In reverence and in charity.

Many of the interested travelers sought positions of advantage on the observation car, to catch a fleeting glimpse of the exquisite colorings of the western sky. The passengers were an interesting lot! Some clearly represented the group of wealthy, restless novelty- seekers, who were tirelessly chasing for new thrills and adventures, a few typified the professional group who seemed soothed and rested by the changing dusk and deepening shadows, others apparently unaware of the ethereal beauty trailing into nightfall, discussed the stirring political interests of the closing Legis- lature. Chief Justice Engle entered the car selecting a deep, comfortable chair in an un-occupicd section. He pulled a small red leather-bound volume from the bulging brief case he carried, and adjusting a pair of glasses, became engrossed in its contents. It was officially known that a five year leave of absence from the Supreme Court bench had been granted to Mr. Engle, to do detailed research work on, " Should a Young Man Kiss a Girl Before Engagement? " The absorbing question, which appealed to his fancy years ago, as a student in college, necessitates a world tour. Intellect of this calibre bearing on this universal problem, in Mr. Engle ' s exhaustive method of attack will be a valuable contribution to the advancement of society. Plans are now under way to build an extension to the Congressional Librarv, to hold his numerous scholarly volumes on weighty judicial problems. The conductor, a man of striking personality, stopped by Mr. Engle ' s chair. A deep, base voice brought a smile of recognition to Mr. Engle ' s sober countenance. " Why — Desmond Bittingcr! I thought vou was stationed in .Ulrica, in fact, 1 had planned to stop to see you on my way home. " " I have postponed my missionary work a tew years, at least, long enough to publish a book which I am writing. In fact, I am using this position in order to study human nature more closely— a practical survey of our old ethics course, Eli! " " That was great work you did on the Fundamental-Modernists movement. Your treatise has definitely and satisfactorily settled that heated controversy. Is it true, Bittinger, that you married Esh and Frances, while you were pastor of the Little Church Around the Corner? " " Yes, that was five years ago. Esh has made himself quite indispensable to the League of Nations. He has made a world-known name for himself as a Chemist. The League has appointed him to experiment on some liquid gas, which administered in prescribed quantities will create a desire in people to abolish war and live together peaceably. When he completes his commission the government asked him to take charge of an extensive borax project in Death ' s Valley. " " That certainly is a credit to E-town! Have you read this morning ' s San Francisco Times about Zig? " An ansivcr in the negative brought forth this amazing information: Zig received the much talked of government project to build the " Way to Europe By Rail " —a bridge across the Atlantic! Zig graduated with the highest honor ever awarded at the Boston University in Civil Engineering. About five years ago he married Fiky, and went to South America to supervise a private enterprise, amounting to an enormous sum. This job had been tried by big engineers from all parts of the world, but with no success. Finally, it was offered to him and in three years he has finished the most marvelous piece of engineering ever known. The government gave him a flattering offer to undertake this unusual fete. " Zig always did go into things whole heartedly. Have you heard anything of Esther Leister, Engle? " " Yes, just last week I was a guest at the National Fruit Growers ' Association Banquet, in Los Angeles, of which Esther is secretary. She owns a large peach farm in Southern California, and is somewhat of a successor to Burbank. Her products have a world market. She has accumulated a comfortable fortune and generously supplies the old college dining room with some of her choicest fruit. It is whispered that someone has discovered that Esther is a peach herself and that she will soon step from a single enterprise into a partnership.

Breidenstine. An honorary Doctor ' s Degree will be conferred upon Mr. Briedenstine in the near future, by the Royal Academy of Science in France. Mr. Engle looked up from the depths of the paper and noticed that the train was approaching Elizabethtown. To his amazement the old Alma Mater had changed from [ a few red brick buildings to a number of ivy covered buildings, with enticing pathways winding over a campus, that extended up to the station and actually as far as the Bluebird! He read " Kreider Hall " on one as the train sped by. " What in the world ? " " Oh, that is Elizabethtown College, " beamed a young ladv near him. She told him that her father, Paul Kreider had given much of his vast fortune from his monopoly of the shoe string industry to build up E ' town. She also mentioned that after he had held the Olympic Championship in basketball for seven years, he endowed a number of Boys ' Athletic Schools, both in the United States and Europe. This pleasing trend of information was cut short when Miss Kreider left the train at Lancaster. " First call for dinner, dining car forward. " Mr. Engle hastily followed the summons and proceeded to the diner. His attention was taken from the delicious salad to a lady who had just taken a seat across from him. " Of all things — Miss Landis! " During the pleasant conversation that followed, Mr. Engle learned a number of interesting items. Miss Landis recently finished a compilation of statistics on the increase of the divorce menance which is to be the foundation of a new Ethics te. tbook. She was on her way to Washington for the opening session of congress, where she intends to push the national uniform marriage bill. She became very popular as a result of a stirring speech on moral reform and is now returning to her tenth term as senator from Idaho. Last summer she conducted a survey of Iceland ' s moral code and in- cidentally lectured to a number of their college students on " Proper Methods of Courtship. " . t Phila- i dclphia Miss Landis changed trains for the national city. | The train having stopped at a small station for a short w hile, Mr. Engle decided to get oil and enjoy the balmy breezes. His interest was drawn to a crowd of people, where a speaker effectively swayed a | group by colorful gestures, and inspiring oratory. Pressing a little closer he found the person to be Miss I Hoffmeir! She vigorously solicited their votes in the coming campaign for her amendment to the constitu tion on installing a course in the public schools to instruct children how to chew gum in rhythm. She emphatically pointed out that 99 ' c of the school teachers have nervous breakdowns because students chew in all kinds of motions and meters. Mr. Engle inquired further of a distinguished looking man near him and greatly to his surprise, the gentleman was acting in the capacity of both Miss Ho.fmcir ' s husband and secretary. He is the head of the Rural Education Department of the University of Texas, where his wife is President. They were conducting this tour in the interests of the N. E. A. A signal for starting forced Mr. Engle to take a reluctant departure. 1 As Chief Justice Engle sped on to New York, he was anticipating with much pleasure, the visit he was | going to make with his old class-mate, Charles Young, Governor of New York. After leaving Elizabeth- i  rj? 7 CLASS PROPHECY Gmtuiueci town College he went to New York city to supervise the Social Science department of the high schools. Mr. Young was frequently called upon to address various civic organizations. After holding a number of important civic positions, Prof. Young was elected to the State Legislature, where he bc;amc an outitanding member of the senate. At the next gubernatorial election he received an overwhelming majority. When Governor Young heard of Justice Engle ' s tour he cordially invited him to spend some time with him. When Mr. Engle stepped from the Limited, into the station at New York, he found Young eagerly awaiting him. Plans were made to go to Albany by boat. After they were comfortably seated on the boat, Mr. Englc told Mr. Young about his trip East and the interesting news he had gathered. " What became of the Brubakcr boys? They were both fine specimens of mankind and I am sure they would make their mark in the world. Do you know anything about them, Young " " Yes, indeed, they have made a name. Mclvin became principal of the West Lampeter High S:hool His work was so successful that he was elected to the vocational branch of the State Department at Harris- burg, h. few years later the state of Massachusetts needed a superintendent of Public Instruction. The year before the educators throughout the United States had taken spe cial note of a book — " New Ways of School Administration, " written by Dr. Melvin Brubakcr. It was readily decided that this was the man needed as the head of their state school system. " " That is splendid! What do you know about Raymond? He was interested in science, wasn ' t he? ' " Whv Engle, you should know more than I do about Raymond. He was given the head of the Air department in the Presidents cabinet. He was connected with the Armstrong Linoleum Plant for several years, after which he took advanced work in mechanical engineering and later became a specialist in con- struction and perfecting airplanes. This makes him an admirable person for the position. Just now, he is abroad studying the Air departments of foreign countries. " " I am surely glad to hear of his success and tell me what do you know about our famous debater, philosopher and psychologist, Samuel Wengcr? He certainly could shoot a line in Class. " I " My oldest son is now attending Yale. The first time he came home for a week-end, he told me that 1 Dr. S. S. Wenger had made out his program. Upon questioning Junior, I found out this is our own Sam Wengcr, and that he holds the chair of Philosophy at Yale University. He is lecturing now on the Phil- osophy of the Fifth Dimension. By the way, Engle, Mrs. Young has planned a dinner in your honor to- night. You see, we haven ' t forgotten your favorite pastime " After spending two delightful days with Governor Young, Mr. Engle returned to New- York, where he expected to embark for England. Upon arriving at the Grand Central Station, Mr. Engle recognized a familiar figure buying a ticket for Elizabethtown. As he turned Mr. Englc recognized the man as Bob Dodderer. Mr. Dodderer was editor of the New York Times, but after five years of active newspaper work, he opened a law office on Fifth Avenue. After a series of brilliant cases, he was elected district judge, where he became famous as an authority in the court of Domestic Relations. It has been rumored among political leaders that Bob has been strongly recommended as Attorney-General to the President. He informed Eli that he was still single and expected to remain so, unless he found an unusual woman. After a hurried good-bye. Chief Justice Englc found his way to the White Star Line, and boarded the Majestic. After dinner that evening Mr. Engle decided to take a stroll on deck before he returned to his state room. Much to his astonishment he recognized Fanny Brubaker sitting snugly in a deck chair. " Well, I wouldn ' t have known you, Mr. Engle. I guess its your bald head and spectacles that mike the difference. Mr. Engle, I want you to meet my husband and daughter. We are on our way back to India, where we have been working for the past eight years. We are just returning from our first fu ' lojgh to the States. We enjoyed it so much. I met Mac Gross on the train at Newark. She is the leading p. ' i- mary supervisor in the Horace Mann School. After graduation she taught two veirs anJ then went to Columbia, where she received her M. A. From there she went to Chicago, where she did such outstanding work in the primary department of the city schools that Columbia University offered her that work in the Horace Mann School. "  KroJillAM CLASS PROPHECY— CoKr ««; Chief Justice Englc was very much interested in these things and in return told Mrs. Miller what he had learned. " I almost forgot to tell you, 1 also met Miss Spicher. She is now an interior decorator. After gradua- tion, she remained at E. C. as the Domestic Science teacher. Do you know the best meals are served in the dining room now, and it is all due to her efforts. She was the instigator in getting a dietition. About three years ago she opened an Interior Decorating establishment in Chicago. She has accepted an offer to re-decorate the White House. " At frequent intervals on the trip over, Mrs. Miller and Mr. Englc would chat of old college days. Finally, the Majestic entered the harbor at Liverpool. With a promise to visit Fanny and her family in Calcutta, Mr. Englc left them at the wharf. In order to carry on his research work, Mr. Engle spent most of his time in the Oxford Library. The last day he spent there something quite unusual happened. For several days he had noticed a tall, reveren- tial looking man entering the library and seeking the section where the religious volumes were stowed away. On this particular day as Mr. Engle was leaving this same gentleman entered. They met face to face, a slight recognition passed and then a hearty handshake. " Why, hello there, is it possible— Eli Keeney! " Naturally, a lengthy conversation ensued. After graduation Mr. Kccny went to Bethany Bible School, where he took his D. D. He was especially sought to serve on diplomatic and reconciliation church boards, being chairman of the Federal Council of Churches. Because of his unusual capacities, the dignitaries of the English Episcopalian Church invited him to settle their intricate controversy. He married shortly after school and his family are now residing in Chicago. Naturally, when Mr. Engle met Mr. Eli Kccny, his mind reverted to the fact that there were two Kcenys in the class of ' 27, and he naturally inquired about Paul. " Well, " said Mr. Kccny, " I haven ' t heard anything of him for the past two years, but at that time he was teaching Psychology at the Lcland Stanford University. The national Y. M. C. .■K. council held a meet ing out there and I had the pleasure of staying with him. Paul had just been married at the time, and he and his wife were very happy to have me as their first guest in their new home. He has gotten stouter and is somewhat bald, otherwise, he is the same Paul. He likes the West and has decided to make his home there. " Mr. Englc having secured his passage on the Eagles . irplane Line from London to Naples, went to the aviation field early to see about his passport and baggage. There he met Babe Ruth, making reserva- tions to the same destination. After the excitement of the unexpected meeting had subsided the two indulged in an interesting conversation. Mr. Engle learned that while Babe was taking his medical work at Johns Hopkins he not only received highest honors in surgery but also won the esteem of the President ' s daughter, which consummated in an early matrimonial understanding. His wife and family were staying at their summer home, a chateau in southern France, while Babe conducted a lecture course on " Heart Diseases, " before the International Surgical Association, in Florence. He has just completed an experi- ment on a Heart Balm, which has caused quite a stir in the medical world. " Say Babe, have you heard any recent developments concerning the search (or . nna Bull? ' ' " ' i ' es, begorra, just this morning I met the American Ambassador who told me all about it. You know, shortly after we graduated she accepted the Presidency of a Girls " School in . laska. At the end of five years, she left the institution which had grown into a university, to travel for the World Peace Association. The last anyone heard of her was four years ago, when she had mysteriously disappeared. After a search of four years she was found in a remote section of northern Persia, where she had been taken captive by a band of outlaws. The Prince of one of the provinces fell in love with her and married her. Now it has been discovered that he is not a Persian but the son of American Missionaries, who had died of (ever when he was only two years old. The natives reared him as their king, so one of our class is actually an empress! " " Chief Justice Englc left Dr. Ruth in Naples, with a promise to visit him in Boston, when he returns •and with best wishes (or continued (ame, as the greatest heart specialist, convinced that the Class o( " 27 was indeed a remarkable one and that we were all (ultilling the old motto, " Educate for Service.

" This hlue-cycd lassie, the only blonde in our class is known by her generous heart and winning smile. Ella is a hard working student, earnest and devoted for she is t)ne of the few who really know just what they want to attain. Her philosophy of life is Aim high! Always try! Never sigh ! I Her favorite expression — " What ' s this business? " 1 Her dailv motto— " Be Ye KiikI. ' ' Raymo.n ' d Baughcr — " Thv studious mind is ever evident. " Raymond is the creative genius on ideas mostly unworkable, at least in the opinion of the less brilliant members of the class. He is a hard, consistent worker possessed with a brilliant mind and a grim determination to attain the heights of learning, but sometimes it seems diflicult for this boy to concentrate due to the fact that a large part, in fact we belie e the " better half " of his interest is centered in the town of Logantown. John Bechtel - " I sing mv way through life. " Poets say, " In the Spring a young man ' s fancy turns, " hut here is one whose fancy turns the year ' round. Music and day dreams are corollaries with Johnny. He is a most conscientious and de- pendable student, and becomes so engrossed in the discussions that bells ring un- heeded. You will surelv reach the top of the ladder, Johnny. Succ ess to you. Milton Eberly — " It smiles keep one alive, I ' ll live till I ' m ninctv-five. " The past year Milty taught school, but he felt the need of more education, so he joined the class of ' 28. Miltv is one of those quiet unassuming young men. His aim is always to be cheerful and useful. His work in the classroom, basketball floor (he is one of the Junior star players) or in any activity is always worth while. Miltv is a great favorite among the ladies and doesn ' t always go out alone in his " coupe. " Your optimistic spirit will insure you easy sailing, Milty. Clarence Frye — " A Man, a right true man howexer Whose works were worthy a man ' s endeavor. " The Garcia of our class! Clarence does his work when the " boss " is away as well as when at home. System, System, System — and then some and you have Clarence. He is a corr.bination of all those qualities which go to make a real man. His ability as a debater is excellent as has been shown in the victories of his team. Clarence ' s sterling qualities have made him a much respected classmate and these same qualities assure for him success in life. Mary Hykls " The beautiful girl is the one whose sweet grace Shines forth in her deeds as it does in her face. " Mary ' s grace not only shines forth in her deeds but in her speech also. She has that beautiful expressive way of speaking her thoughts which makes one stop and listen. To know her is to love her. Even though her Junior year has been filled with activities she is never too pre-occupied to smile or too busy to lend a friendly hand to one in need. Her enthusiasm is contagious and it is a pleasure to work with her for she works for the love of working. Whether her future lies in sunny Africa or a cottage small in our own home land the love and best wishes of the class go with her.  MrojiiijLM 1 1;|| 1 7 L Emmert McDannel — " Just a smile now and then Just a kindness to a Friend Just a willing heart to work Just a hand that knows no shirk Just a living faith each day Tis just the only proper way. " ' Emmert is one of the four day students of our class. His faithful " Dodge " carries him to and from school, and usually he is the first day student to appear on the " Hill " in the morning. Best success to you, Emmert, in whatever line of work you choose. Arthur Miller — " A little learning is a dangerous thing Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian Spring. " Arthur is of that artistic temperament which sees art, beauty, and good in every- thing. " Art " likes to travel and spent much of his last summer ' s vacation in traveling, or rather hiking, to Nebraska. Chemistry and other sciences seem to be his favorite studies. Judging from his character and habits it is evident that his purpose in choosing a profession is to render the grc.ucst possible service to humanity. " Art, " also is a splendid debater. J. Miis Miller — " For he ' s a jolly good fellow Which no one can deny. " Yes, Jim is Arthur ' s brother, and both are day students. There certainly is nothing melancholy about Jim. His motto seems to be " Never trouble trouble, till trouble troubles you. " In Jim, the Junior Class has found a very able president. In spite of his carefree nature he can be serious and we hope to see him president of larger organizations in the future. The best wishes of the class are yours, Jim. RriH Ober " Happy, vivacious, gay Fortune will surely smile on her way. " Ruth is the only girl day student of our class. Since she doesn ' t live on the dorm, wc girls have not learned to know her as well as we would have wished. Even though she is little in stature, she is big at heart and alwavs bubbling over with fun. " ' ariety is the spice of our class " says Ruth, and she furnishes plentv of it. As a debater her score is high As an athlete higher still Her social activities none can vie Not even those on College Hill. Belle Sp. ngler — " So young, so fair Good without effort, great without foe. " — Byron. Belle IS a girl of order, system and straight thinking. A smile, a pleasant word and a bit of cheer that is Belle. Sometime ask Belle if she can cook, and she will say, " That is not my line, but if I need it, I can learn. " Belle is interested in nursing and we have no doubt that she will make an excellent nurse. She has won the sin- cere admiration, respect and liking of not only her classmates, but of all who know her. Truly, she is one we are all proud to call a classmate. Nora Toms Oh! The light that lies in Tommy ' s eyes And lies and lies and lies! Gentlemen, beware! It causes heart trouble sometimes, .• fter spending one successful year in teaching school. Tommy returned to the Hill to take her Junior work. Do the Juniors like Tommy? Well, I guess! ' Tis she who makes us laugh and furnishes the fun. Laugh with Tommy — ' tis worth a million dollars and doesn ' t cost a cent.  M College Hill, Room 19, Alpha Hall. V Dear Jane It Joes seem my neglect in writing to you is unpardonable. But you sec I am a Junior and we scarcely have time to write in our mad rush for education. I have never told you about our class, have P A few weeks ago Jane, the Junior Class decided to have their picture taken for ou know a school year is not complete unless one has a picture to remember it by. Of course the photographer went on to tell us what an illustrious class we were — but vvc knew all that. Finally after looking pretty for at least half an hour, or until the boys had their ties straight and all unrul hairs were in place, he pressed the button. The picture was taken, and I am sending one to vou. It will tell you what I am unable to put into words. First, take a look at the picture. Did you ever see such an intelligent looking group? Fame always brings a certain amount of dignity — note the dignity of the gentleman standing on the extreme left. That ' s Clarence Frye. He loves to think — and debate. We don ' t know the subsequent career of this young gent but we can imagine him on the platform expostulating on some brain-racking question. That film of daintiness in the front row is Mary Hykes. She ' s from Maryland. She has a permanent position on Student Council as far as the girls arc concerned. Mary gets lots of bo.xcs from home. Some of them are so big it takes three to carry them upstairs, then she shares out the " cats " The blonde in the back row is her room-mate, Ella Baughcr. You know we are glad to have a blonde in our class, they ' re so rare, and then, too, gentlemen prefer them. Ella loves to sing and is always ready with the rest of us to have a good time Do you see the smile of the little fellow standing on the extreme right? — that ' s natural. In fact, 1 never saw Milty without his smile. It ' s as essential with him as his necktie. But Milty is such a big kidder. Milty calls his Ford coupe " True Love " because she never runs smooth. Now the fellow with the haunted eyes — see him in the front row. That ' s " Chin-chin Interminabli. " The professors call him John Bcchtel, we call him " Chin-Chin " because as soon as the bell rings for dis- missal he starts talking and continues to do so even after the professor has said " Class excused. " " Take a brief glance at the President. Of course, youll see him sitting in the center front. That ' s Jim Miller. Hes the beau brummel of the class. Jim is very businesslike and pilots the class safely over all stormy waters. He spends a great deal of his time in the library studying and worrying Professor Rose. His favorite pastimes are African golf and sentimental excursions to the Prcsident " s house. And that burst of enthusiasm in the back row isjim " s brother Arthur, the " globe-trotter. " He spends his summers traveling. Arthur is a debater of high rank. He is a lad, who stands by his own convictions and is never swayed by the crowd. He is already dreaming of castles in Spain. May they materialize and not become mere, filmy, air castles. Isnt the little girl sitting in front sweet? Thats Belle Spangler. She is always doing something for somebody. Belle is quite a public speaker. She has given numerous readings this year and all have pleased the listeners. Now look at the fellow near the center back. Gaze intently — a long time. Isnt there something remarkable about his features? I think he has the future of a great literary man. He takes public speaking and the gracefulness of his gestures put Bill Nye in the limelight. His name is Raymond Baugher. Ray mond is always singing and has joined the " Roaring Nineties " " quartette. The little girl peeping out from the back row is " the Kid. " That ' s what Jim calls her. Her name i Ruth Ober. Ruth is a cheerful, happy, liberty-loving girl. But she is most happy when she is back of the steering wheel of her Dad ' s big Buick. Ruth is the historian of our class. She is the only girl da student of the Junior Class and never has to worry about counting her " nights out " " or hearing " chaperone codes. " The sedate looking gentleman is Emmert McDannel. My but he is studious! Enuncrt comes every morning with an open book tied to the motor meter of his Dodge so he can stud on the way to school.  .J r ' iAi mim ijj.7r - He is a wonderful bass singer. Emmert spends most of his time in the library perusing the " fountains of knowledge " and doesn ' t indulge in sports like " tight rope walking " and college-football. Emmert is a real swain with the fairer sex and his Dodge is always at their disposal. Our class adviser is sitting in the front row. It isn ' t hard to find him. We are indeed fortunate in having him for our advisor, for he always enters into the doings of the class with as much spirit as any of its members. Do you see me- ' I am standing in the center of the back row. I look terribly thin there, but since I have been in Pennsylvania, eating sourkraut and applesauce I have gained a few pounds and will soon be up to normal. Mercy I didn ' t know it was so late. I niii.r hurry along. .Adios, love from Nora. " 8?  p i  SOPHOMORE CLASS Prisidtnt Vtct-prcsidcnt. Sicrttary Trtasurtr.

She is taking the course in Education, preparing to teach. Her motto is " An empty wagon makes the most noise. " Ira Brandt — Brandt is the oldest member of the class. For this reason it is only natural for him to be married. He is an active minister of the Gospel, and a student of no mean ability, pursuing the course in Liberal Arts. Esther Brindle — Never sober, never solemn, always joking, alwavs giggling. Esther is the champion giggler of the class. Her giggles are a cross between hys- terics and a hiccough. She had a hard time deciding which class to join, but finally the Freshman Class was fortunate enough to receive her. Mary Brinser — Mary is a day student who is seldom seen on the " Hill " except when she has classes. She is specializing in shorthand and tvpewriting, preparing to be a stenographer. Raymond Bucher — Raymond hails from York county, where he has taught in the rural schools for one year. He is leaving the class this year and devoting his time in the molding of the character of " Young America. " Anna Cassel — Men, men, let them ever abound; How happy I am when they ' re around. Yes, this is Anns greatest weakness, but she makes friends with everybody wherever she goes. Who wouldn ' t be attracted by those laughing eyes, and that winning smile? The Lafelots will challenge anyone to name a girl with a kinder heart, for their share in her boxes from home. Harold Ebersole — " Ebb " is our representative from Lancaster. He is the da ' student who rooms on the " dorm, " that is, when special privileges are given. He is taking the course in Economics, later expecting to receive the C. P. A. degree. " Ebb " will some day rank among America ' s leading economists. Walter Eshelman Here is the generous fellow who lets his comrades get some benefit out of that Buick, also. " Esh " is trying to get a whole lot out of a little, a whole lot of education out of three days school work. When it concerns lessons, " Esh " is up to the mark; when it ' s fun and frolic he dt)es his share. Lois Forney — " 1 love my ceaseless prattle Of words with noisy flow, I love to wind my tongue up I love to hear her go. " Birds of a feather flock together, so usually one finds her with the E. C. talkers. In addition to this hobby, she shows great interest in Lebanon county inhabitants. Miriam Frantz -Always smiling, always happy, always ready for fun. " Mim " is our official blues chaser. No matter how badly you feel, " Mim " can always cheer you. This charming personality of hers is a great asset to Memorial Hall.  Clari-nce Givler -Here is a day student who comes all the way from East Petersburg for a seven-forty class. Givler has traveled somewhat through the west, and is very fond of rehiting his thrilling escapes from the Indians and the wild and woolly cowboys. Mary Givler — Mary decided to cast her lot with the girls of Memorial Hall the second semester, and we know she will never regret it. She may seem quiet, but in her eyes there lurks that " bit o ' devilry " which must come out once in a while. Ruth Henrv — Ruth is short, but oh, she is long winded. She studies some, but talks much more. Her hobby seems to be vocal lessons. " Hen " is good- natured, optimistic, and stands firm and true. She is one of the fortunate few to have upper-classmen as intimate friends. Pauline Herr — " Polly " has the gift of GAB. She can talk a tin ear on a brass monkey. In dining room, class room, or chapel, you can always find her expressing her opinion on whatever topic is under discussion. " Good things come to those who wait " — so stick-to it " Polly. " Mary Hershey — Mary is one of those dreamy girls, and vou never can tell what it ' s all about. Her hobby seems to be sleeping. This fair lass also takes great de- light in visiting at home over week ends. Well Mary, it ' s all right as long as you don ' t forget to come back again. Richard Jacobs — " Dick " hails from the city of York. He is a good sport in the gym and on the hall. " Dick " is very seldom seen on the " Hill " over weekends, due to a greater attraction back home. We do not blame him, and wish him the best of luck. Wayne Keller — " Ike " has an excellent voice as is clearlv demonstrated in class meetings, keeping order. He is an excellent debater, noblv upholding the Gray and Blue. As editor of the College Times he is very successful, and we predict a bright future for him. Esther Kilhefner — " She is a maid of artless grace, Gentle of manner, and fair of face. " After all the songs of laughter have died away suddenly Esther begins to laugh- Oh, that ' s this young lady just getting the joke. Esther is our songster, and warbles morning, noon and night. J. Mark Kreider -Here is a goodnatured, jolly lad, who was greatlv instru- mental in having the Freshman boys wear " green dinks. " Ofttimes Kreider is seen on the " Hill " in his father ' s Reo sedan, which usually takes him to Florin. Wc wonder why? ? ? ? ? ? Alverta Lecrone— This fair faced, goodnatured, kindhearted, and studious lass, hails from York. Alverta is one of the most popular girls in the class, and also one of the staves of the basketball team. When it comes to a class social or other social function, she ' s always in the limelight. Margaret LEHN " Peg " came to college from E-town High School as an honor student. She has excellent ability as an elocutionist, which she demonstrated laudably in literary society. After spending two years on the " Hill " she expects to teach. Success to you. Peg. Dorothy Leister — " With smiles on her face, and eyes of sky blue. She ' ll gain success, in whate ' er she may do. " " Dot " is one of the quiet girls who attends to nobody ' s business but her own. Her wealth of beautiful brown hair is the envy of all her classmates, but we haven ' t learned the secret vet.  Florence Miller — Florence is the reserveJ Miss of the class. " Oh, I can ' t, I must study, " seems to he her password, tor she is always loyal to her lessons. Go to it Florence, play in life as you do in haskcthall; tell the people to get out of your way. Miriam Newh.auser— " Mickey " shines in basketball. If she isn ' t present to cage the goals our team is a crippled team. " Mickey " is genial and good natured, so she doesn ' t mind brightening our five work days, but she positively can ' t bear " College Hill " over week ends. John Ortii is our basketball captain. This wearer of the green hails from Marietta, w hich place he has put on the map by his athletic ability. Orth has a good sense of humor, and is very optimistic. His favorite is " Oh hum. " His greatest delight is studying or driving his father ' s Buick. Sara Ream — Some call her " Silly Sara " but she uses discretion for she scarcely ever cuts up in places where she ought to behave. Sara is another of commuters, so if you want to know any secrets about her, the best we can do is to refer you to the Day Student Room. Ellis Reber — Here is a lad who ' s thoughts and actions are too deep to express in words. When Ellis recites we sit in awe and amazement at the thoughts por- trayed by use of an almost Shakespearean vocabulary. Norman Reber — Norman is a very versatile chap. He is both a student and an athlete; but does not stress the social side of life very much. He says " Why I worry? Life is still before me. " His favorite expression is " That ' s the gravy. " J. Franklin Rintz — Rintz started the year as a day student but he soon decided to room on the " dorm. " He became tired of this single strife and has joined the matrimonial caravan which moves toward happiness and contentment. He is Cir- culation Manager of the College Times. Irene Royer — Irene is one of the brighest girls in the class. Although she studies hard she manages to keep much time for other things. She proved her worth to the class as its secretary, and as Girls ' Basketball Captain, and in various other responsible positions. She also acts as spokesman for the freshman girls. William Thome — Bill is the person who has made the class famous, for when he begins to cheer the class is sure to be in the limelight. Bill thinks that history repeats itself, and that there will soon be another reign of William and Mary. Ray Yost — This gent can be seen in the reception room or somewhere in Mem- orial or Alpha Halls, all hours of the day, all days of the week. Yosty believes in the fourfold life, although he does not stress the physical, moral, and spiritual nearly as much as the social. Mary Zeigler — When Mary first came to E. C, she pretended to be quiet, but, now we know her better. She and Mickey are the Siamese twins of College Hill. Mary also shows interest in the stronger half of the illustrious seniors. Henry Zug Zug drives a Rickenbacker roadster, which often takes him out of town. Others like the roadster as well as he does, and so there is usually at least one passenger besides himself. Zuggie is known as the shiek of the class, and when he struts about with his " J. Pierpont " air the opposite sex falls, and great is the fall of it. Irene Bashore and Beulah Weaver— These tw-o girls are second semester students, and consequently we don ' t know much about them, but we feel confident that thev will be an asset to the class. Both seem rather quiet and studious, but it is never good to judge from first impressions.  oJillA TJ 7 FRESHMAN M   - - ' ' 7 ' 3 C " S!N, $ ACTIVITIES i " -Jl ' rairzxir|jrM rjj. HOMERIAN LITERARY SOCIETY ?Tcsidtnt Vict Pmidt} Stcrttan Treasurer Critic Chaplain...... Georol Ruth John Betchel Marv Hykes Ruth Garner James Miller .RTHUR Miller SINCE the discontinuance of the Academy Department at the College, all regular students are enrolled as members of the Homcrian Literary Society. This society has been doing remarkable work through- out the sixteen years of its existence in developing the literary talents of the students. The society has changed the time of its regular weekly meeting from Friday to Thursday at four o ' clock in order to better accommodate the students and avoid conflicts with many other Friday evening programs. Miss Gciman, the Dean of Women, was elected to succeed Professor Harley as its advisor. The meetings this year were very interesting and ediicativc, because of the high type of programs given, and the splendid manner in which the participants have performed their duties. The society has become one of the most lively organizations on " College Hill. "  ' JSjr y iA. mX m Tyj j ,.

Although many of last year ' s active members had grad- uated, there were several new members added, the total membership being sixteen. Many successful debates were held. The schedule included Susquehanna, Schiivlkill College, Cedar Crest College, Temple University,. [uniata College, Western Maryland College, and Lebanon X ' alley College. The social hour which followed each debate held here, either by the men or women, shows that the women of this association have not only forensic ability, but also, that peculiar trait which evcrv woman should possess, domestic ability. The members of the association were Edythe Arbuckle. Ella Baugher, Fanny Brubakcr. . nna Bull, Sarah Conner, Lois Forney, Ruth A. Garner, Pauline Greene, Mary Hykcs, Anna M. Landis. Alvcrta Lecrone, Esther Leister, Ruth Ober, Belle Spangler, and Gladys Worth. The teams chosen from the association were as follows: .Mfirmative — Negative — Ruth Garner Anna Bull (Capt.)

The scJiedule at home includes debates Maryland, Susquehanna, and Bridgewater. The big feature of this year ' s season is the tour which is to be taken by four of the debaters, Messrs. Keller, Wenger, Bittinger and Engle, during the week of March 14-19, through Maryland. ' irginia, and West Virginia. It is hoped that this will be an annual feature. %  YOUNG WOMEN ' S WELFARE ASSOCIATION The Young Women ' s Welfare Association to which each girl claims membership, has done more than any other organization at E ' town College in uniting the interests of the girls and sponsoring their various activities. It is well organized and each Friday evening, immediately after the supper-hour, regular meet- ings are held, at which time any impending business is transacted and a program of an entertaining type is rendered. These meetings arc much enjoyed by the girls and aid greatly in uniting the girls — especially in getting acquainted in the early days of the school year. A little diversion in the form of a question box concerning probing questions of etiquette and social decorum adds variety to the scheduled programs, and also socials of various kinds. Several feature programs are usually rendered each year under the auspices of the Y. W. W. A. This year a most interesting one was given by the Braxton Quintette, a quintette of colored ladies. It was very much appreciated by those who had the privilege of hearing them, and it proved most successful. This year the dining room and reception room were beautified as a result of the interests of the girls. It is through this body that requests are taken to the authorities and unsatisfactory conditions are amelio- rated. In time of sickness or prolonged absence from school remembrances in forms of flowers or some other little suitable gifts are sent through the Girls ' Welfare . ssociation and interest and appreciation kept alive in this way. Co-operation between the Young Women ' s and Young Mens Welfare .Associations have proved most beneficial in sponsoring joint programs. We feel that much is gained from such relationships. School-spirit, and that feeling of at-homeness and acquaintcdness so essential to happy school life has its origin, we feel, in this girl ' s organization. And through it the four-fold interests of the girls have been given much consideration, and it is through the labors of such an organization that E. C. ' s co-eds can really be called " daughters fair and true " of E. C. ' s gray and blue.  YOUNG MENS WELFARE ASSOCIATION Prrsidinl, Aaron Brei Vict Prriidint, Eli Ke Srcrctjry, Eli En Tn J surer, Hira T ' HIS association includes ail the men students of the college. Its purpose is to secure the highest oopcration and loyalty for the common welfare. Since the organization of the Young Men ' s Christian Association, the meetings are held jointly, with the president of either association presiding, depending on the nature of the meeting. In these meetings topics of interest to young men are discussed, and frequently members of the faculty and others give interest- ing and helpful talks to the group. During the year the Welfare Association has several social entertainments which are very beneficial in binding the students together with a spirit of fellowship and goodwill. This year the association is featuring a special public program rendered by the " Harmonic Trio. "  ' Y. W. C. A. OFFICERS ' Presiiicttt Vtce-presidttit Secretary Treasurer.

A. has completed all necessary requirements for entering the state association as a full fledged member. We were represented at practically all the conferences with which the association is connected, the most distant one being that held at Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We have secured and equipped a room in the boys ' building. Some books and magazines were donated, and new ones are continually added. A radio is part of the equipment. . s members of the Y. M. C. ., students are given special privileges in the Y. M. C. K. buildings of the different cities. Lancaster city, in particular, has already offered us special rates for using its building. Deputation work has been done in the Dauphin County prison at Harrisburg, and in the prison and alms house at Lancaster. The association aims to render Christian service wherever possible. Our activi- ties at school consist of weekly meetings and special programs. We are planning to give several motion picture reels, such as The Man Without a Country, " and " The Passion Play, " as special features during the vear, which wc believe will be inspirational as well as educational.  JOINT STUDENT COUNCIL T HE student council is an organiza a good spirit among the studc founded. under the two welfare associations whose aim is to maintain lid uphold the Christian ideals upon which the school was It functions in two separate bodies, one for the women and one for the men, however, both work to- gether with a common purpose. Each council is represented bv two members of the senior class and one member from each of the other classes. The two welfare presidents, the Dean of Women, and the Dean of Men, sit with their respective councils. The councils for the present year have acted very elficiently in the work of student government and have helped to uphold the morals and ideals of the school in a commemorable wa .  rojiziA.

The Homerian Oratorical Contest is held in March. All students are eligible e.xcept those who won prizes the previous year. The prizes given are: hrst, hfteen dollars in gold; second, ten dollars; third, live dollars; and fourth, honorable mention. The winners last year were John Trimmer, Lessie Wagner, Arthur Miller, and Elmer Eichelberger, respectively. The Homerian Essay Contest is open to all freshmen and sophomores. The prizes arc ten dollars for the best essay, and five dollars for the next best. Last year Lucille Sanger won the first and Playford Bittinger the second. The essays are read and judged by a special committee appointed each year. The best essay is read at one of the literary meetings. The Elizabeth Myre Extempore Speaking Contest was inaugurated by Mr. Edgar Diehn, in memory of Miss Elizabeth Myre, former teacher of Expression in Elizabethtown College. This is the first year that this contest will be held. Two prizes, ten and five dollars, respectively, will be given to those who do the best extemporaneous speaking on a designated subject.  rojiiiAx rj : 1 - L g Mi BuUfLiBSrnR] CHORUS THE music department is divided into two distinct divisions; a mixed chorus, quartets and soloists and the piano students. Each of these divisions separately and jointly furnish the music during the school year which is a great asset, if not the greatest, in the development of the xsthetic phase of a college career. The music rendered is of a high type, the kind which issued from the musical souls of many of our greatest composers, such as Haydan, Handel, Mozart, and Beethoven. The division comprising the greatest number of participants is the mixed chorus. This division under the leadership of Professor E. G. Meyer, with Mrs. E. G. Meyer as the accompanist. It renders two can- tatas yearly, which renderings are known to all music lovers throughout the school vicinity. The featuring of the chorus during commencement week deserves much credit in the making of enjoyable and successful commencement programs. The organized quartets arc two in number, the " Glccmcn, " and the " Lyric " (formerly known as the college quartet). These feature in programs rendered at college and in the immediate locality. The music rendered by them is of a classical and a semi-classical nature and is criticized by the director of the music department before any rendition is given at a public performance. The hard work put forth by both these quartets is invaluable to the members of the quartets and is also splendid training for various positions in life. The training of the soloists consists in the rudimentary teaching, the technique, and along with these the real soul quality of good musical interpretation. Those in pursuance of this course arc given practical experience in quartet, chorus, and solo singing. Twice annually special programs are arranged for them in which their ability is demonstrated before the public. These programs are under the supervision of the music director and are held in the college chapel. Those taking piano lessons, quite frequently render selections at school programs such as, literary society, and musical programs held during the year. They render memorized selections at two musical programs held to acquaint them with public performance. The piano division of the music department is under the supervision of Mrs. E. G. Meyer.  First tenor, R. K. Eby; First Bass, Galen C. Kilhefner; Second Tenor, A. G. Breid- enstine; Second Bass, Professor D. E. Myers Living songs are those that give Ambition, zeal and cheer, Encouragement for God to live And gladly serve Him here. They have the " ' vital spark " of life Which spurs to higher things And strengthens for the ceaseless strife The trusting soul that sings. James Rowe.  In living songs we find a cord Of fellowship which binds Forever closer to our Lord Our hearts and souls and minds. Whenever we such songs repeat, In whatsoever place They make us feel His Presence sweet And see His sacred face.  STUDENT VOLUNTEERS ORGANIZATION Galen Kilhefner Minerva Martin Eli Keeney Miriam Maderia LuciLE Sanger Esther Leister Chairman Via Chairman ..Corresponding Secretary Recording Secretary Treasurer . Choirister Uhrarim, The Student X ' oluntecrs believe that to play fair with God is to return to Him their thanks for the good things He has done for them. They believe that the best way to express their thanks is to give back to Him their lives for His use in His service. They attempt to get themselves, therefore, in such relation to Him that He can lead them into the field of their greatest ability to serve with the greatest effectiveness. By signing the pink card whiclr reads, " It is my purpose to devote my life to Christian work, " one becomes a member of the Volunteers of the Church of the Brethren and by signing the white card, which reads, " It is my purpose to become a foreign missionary, " one becomes a member of both the Church of the Brethren Organization and of the United Student Volunteers. These two organizations of volunteers function together on the Hill. The Volunteers meet weekly for purposes of consecration and inspiration. They study together the needs of the various fields where mission work is carried on and unite together in intercessory appeal for Gods guidance there. Professor Nye has given these a course this year in Church History and other of the instructors have given inspiring messages. This year has been a big year again in deputation work. Almost every Sunday a team has been out in some church attempting to carry the message of their hearts to the hearts of others. Some of the churches visited have been Harrisburg, Ephrata. East Petersburg, Myerstown, York, Palmyra, and many others. Again this year we were well represented at the various volunteer conferences held throughout the year. These conferences furnish the volunteers a clearer insight into the problems and difficulties of the I allows them to share with him the joys and remunerations of the work. The Volunteers have found the joy of following the ideal of Christian service.  To Africa To India THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO THOSE THO OF OCR NUMBER WHO HAVE THIS YEAR SAILED TO THEIR CHOSEN WORK - Sara Shislcr was born in a farm house near Vcrnficld, Pa., in 1896. The daughter of John B. and Hannah Shislcr. She took three years of Preparatory work and three years of College work in Elizabeth- town College, and later served two years as teacher in the Academy. She was always a thorough student and a very faithful member of the Volunteers. As she goes from our land to carry the message we, who are yet at home, join our hearts in prayer for her, that she may in the realization of the ideal she has so long reached for find the joy that folllows aways devoted Christian sacrifice and that out in .Africa she may so shine that men may see the light and glorify Almighty God. Ethel Roop, daughter of William and Anna Roop, was born near Westminster, Md., in 1895. She was for two years a member of our group while she was dean of women and a teacher in Elizabeth town College. She was always read - to lend a helping hand to us when we were in need and no service was too menial for her to render wholeheartedly. We wish for her as she goes out to India a place in the hearts of the Indians such as she has found in ours.  J9M . -1 Bible Institute The Bible Institute held again this year, January 16-25, proved to be a real spiritual banquet. Ample opportunity was offered for spiritual growth to all who cared to come and avail themselves of the proffered blessings. E. B. Hoff of Bethany Bible School, taught " Studies in Christian Worship " and " Great Bible Doctrines, " R. N. Miller of North Manchester, Indiana, taught " Studies in the Parables of Jesus " and " Studies in the Lord ' s Prayer. " Anna Hutchinson, missionary to China, taught " Problems in China Missions " and W. J. Hamilton taught " Studies in Christian Education. " Throughout the entire week, interest ran high but Saturday and Sunday were the climaxing days. On Saturday, three special programs were given, one a Sunday School program, one on Christian Education, and one a Young Peoples program. R. D. Murphy, of Philadelphia, spoke at the educational program on " Why Educate. " The Sunday after- noon program was Missionary, and the fitting climax came on Sunday evening in the two sermons " Youth and the Church of Tomorrow, " by Rev. Hamilton, and " The Art of Being a Christian, " by Rev. Miller. The deep spirituality of these leaders could not help but be transmitted to their audiences and cause in the heart of each an awakening to greater consecration and determination to advance in Christian service- " Do not imitate man, imitate God. To imitate man is to parrot and miss the heart. " " To learn the secrets of the Most High do His will " " Don ' t allow the ' I don ' t know how ' to cover a multitude of sins " " Only the Hungry heart can understand the Kingdom of Heaven. " " You know Christ as you tell Him to others; you understand Faith as you communicate it. " " It is a sin to destroy a man ' s conception of Heaven unless vou can supplv a better. " e?c!3 Religious Activities Repeatedly visitors on College Hill have remarked the spirit of fellowship and home-like-ness that prevails among the student bodv. This in part at least, is due to the splendid way in which Elizabethtown lives up to its name of Christian Institution. The readiness with which the students take part in the various distinctly religious services is indeed to be commended. The Prayer Meeting affords each student an opportunity to express his thoughts and feelings to the student body on many of the questions of the day and allows nearly all the students an opportunity to lead a Wednesday evening prayer service. Through our service of song and devotion we can get very near to each other and learn to know each other in a better way. The daily Chapel services give opportunity for our instructors to bring to us messages ot inspiration and words of council, on moral, ethical, philosophic and religious phases of life. Each instructor brings us the inspirations he has gleaned from his field of instruction. Hence, one morning, we are addressed in the terms of chemistry and another in the terms of biology, once we see our task as the background of history makes our present weaknesses apparent and again we sec it as the future of education challenges us. Every other week we have a Christian Workers service over which one of the students presides and a preach- ing service in the chapel. These preaching services are always adapted particularly to students. Every Sundav one can see students leaving College Hill to render christian service of one kind or another, somewhere in the surrounding countryside. They may travel to some outpost Sunday School to teach a class of boys or girls, or to a prison or almshouse, to inspire and cheer, or to a church to give the message of their hearts but where ever it be the backing of the religious activities of College Hill shining through makes apparent the light of higher things. We feel that the spirit of the Christ shall ever continue to grow in the hearts of the students of Elizabethtown College.  Social GET ACQUAINTED SOCIAL ON the evening of September 7, 1926, the entire student body and faculty met in the chapel for the annual Gct-Acquainicd Social. The evening opened with a shock and a jolt precipitated by the innocent Frosh. This unculpablc, heterogeneous, incondite conglomeration assuming as much dignity as their crude nature could contain, marched upon the reostrum, a spot rich with the memories of traditional culture. The president of their class, Wayne Keller, very fluently introduced each member of the class to the audience. Despite the strenuous effort of each Frcshie to look wise, it was indeed remark- able how their immature nature cropped out. Of course, they have just approached the threshold of man- hood and womanhood, and we feel assured that even though they have come as children we shall send them away as men and women. The courageous Sophs, the next to ascend the rostrum, seemed to take great pride in displaying their brainy class. They depicted faultless decorum and apparently glowing importance, but somehow the cul- tural and calm ballast unique only of upper classmen was woefully lacking. As the Juniors succeeded the Sophs they permeated the scene with a real collegiate atmosphere. The dignitaries of the college took new heart and resumed more serene mental sets. The climax of the evening was not reached until the seniors appeared on the stage. Embodied m the senior class is very extraordinary talent and college-bred essence galore. The seniors having thrown olf the pretentiousness of the juniors, the sophisticism of the sophs and the crudity of the froshs, demonstrated that calm, cultured and hrm snap, which is typical onlv of the truly educated. As the president of the class introduced separatcdly and successively each of the staunch intellectual seniors, the under classmen were moved with awe, and the faculty became more and more settled in its conviction that the future welfare of our noble institution was safe. This annual affair, as is the custom, was terminated by everybody rising and singinj; " .Mma Mater. " With so favorable an opening we felt assured that nothing but a brilliant vcar could follow. WIENER AND MARSHMALLOW TOAST Friday evening, September 10, the annual Wiener and Marshmallow toast, which is a social function of the introductory past of each school year and which serves as a medium of facilitating the necessary social adjustments, was heartily enjoyed by practically every child of dear old E. C. As usual, the first scene of the big event was laid on the athletic field. A few games to begin with allayed all worries and fears of strangeness (especially among the freshmen) and then everyone bubbled over with the jovial spirit of the glorious occasion. Literally, " the day was dying in the west. " One game directly and glcctulli lollmved another until the shades of night grew quite dark and all agreed that the wieners and marshniallows would furnish re- suscitating strength so sorely needed due to the mirthful e-fertion. Now the sons of E. C. displayed a splendid spirit of chivalry in roasting wieners for their fair, delicate, and tender scholastic sisters. The wieners and marshmallows suffered considerable havoc. Every one being physically satiated, each " Knight " centered his tendcrcst services to the lady which proved to have the greatest affinity for him, the crusade for the hidden treasure was started. Two abreast, in perfect units of opposites, they faithfully marched in regular succession from one place to another speci- fied place, and from thence to another specified place, etc. Finally, after a long but romantic march the crusade terminated in the kitchen of the college, where each received a lolly-pop and was informed that that was the sought-for treasure. Thus after exchanging epithets of mutual appreciations for appreciations expressed by each one ' s respective partner for his respective company, the event was concluded. The far- reaching and good circcts of this event are indescribably incomprehensible, and they remain yet to be seen.  jSjr(yjiriA: mxm Tjj.7 SCHOOL OUTING True to the delightful tradition of the annual autumnal outing in the heart of the Concwago Hills, both faculty and students cooperated in making a momentous occasion of this event on Saturday, October 20. The rich reds and browns of the frost-tinged leaves plus the cool invigorating atmosphere inspired the rambling spirit of even the unromantic. Meandering slowly and unswervingly through .the courses well defined by nature between bramble and rock the pleasure-seeking couples, as well as the heterogeneous group made various sight-seeing tours among the grand scenery of nature. As the noon hour approached, the aggregation in the Nook became larger and larger until the last wayward hillside couple (Engle and Zeigler) was included. Prexy had arrived by now and in a crucible of a feast of fellowship all the students and faculty of our belo ved Alma Mater were fused into one glorious unit. Not only the students, but the high-brows as well, forgot cold dignity and stiff conventionality. For the day, everybody was a good sport on an equal plane for a rousing good time. Various energetic games followed the eats; several stunts were performed, as well as a few snaps taken. The day was unquestion- ably a great success and the social committee deserves much sincere commendation. At five o ' clock everybody was back to college feeling great but most wonderfully tired. Neural vigor, courteousy, proper attitude towards teacher and fellow-student, etc., are some of the attributes accruing from such occasions, and hence these occasions are most cherished memories of college life. HALLOWEEN SOCIAL The Hallowe ' en Social on Friday evening, October 29, was a grand, glorious, unique and thrilling occasion. The whole E. C. force, both students and faculty, felt the spirit of the celebration and were out for a good time. Upon entering the dining room, now transformed into a weird banquet hall, we felt the primitive superstitions of the race faintly tingle within our veins. Grinning pumpkin Jack-o-lanterns, draperies of crepe paper dotted with ghostly figures and silhouetted cats, and the electric lights dimmed with dra- peries, all added to the weirdness of the atmosphere. . l so the promiscuous coupling-up at the tables, the extraordinary costumes and the pantomime, all added wonderfully to the color of the evening. Uncon- ventionality shone in due propriety for the occasion and everyone seemed tickled at the unusual and the extraordinary so abundantly prevailing. Yes, we had scrumptious feed. The menu comprised such delicacies as pumpkin custard, " Witches Brew " (cider), celery, mixed vegetables and salad, " mystic dose " and a Hallowe ' en Sundae. Following the peppy toasts from the faculty, and after having been physically satiated, we marched to the gym in the basement of Memorial Hall. Decorations were elaborate corn fodder, pumpkins, various draperies and a blanket of rich-colored autumn leaves, which carpeted the floor, all heljied to put us at once into the spirit of the evening ' s fun. Everyone felt he was not far distant from " ghostly spookincss " but was not introduced to the esteemed " Order of the Sheets " until each took its turn in making the round through the " Land of the Spirits ' " on the second and third floors. On the dimly lighted room, serving as the witchs tent each one " s fate was given by the " old crone " and then, while ascending and making your way through the dark chapel, the sheet-draped " ghosts " flashing electric lights now and then and producing startling sounds, and by the rattling of chains, caused creepy shivers to pass up and down the spinal columns of even the members of the sterner sex. The height of sensation was reached when the victims were caught by the witches and coerced to drink the slayed criminal ' s blood. The final thrill of the evening consisted of a march, two-abreast, through the dark orchard adjacent to the campus which was chequered with numerous ghosts. This completed the wierd and spooky frolic, and it being time for the Tower Bell to seal our eves, we disb.indc.l w irh light spirits and refreshed minds.  1 [p IIA [90J -y roJiiiAJir Whose Who Best looking Best Scholar.

In order to be well developed physically we must take exercise, and at the college that means engage in various types of athletics. There arc many different kinds of athletics in which the students of E ' town may participate. Some of these sports arc Soccer, V ' olley Ball, Baseball, Tennis, Quoits, Speed-ball, Rowing, Skating, and Basketball. One can tell by reading this list of games that there is an opportunity for every student on the hill to become enthusiastic over one or more of these activities. During the summer of 1926 the college provided a large athletic field which was chiefly used for base- ball. This is one of the finest fields in this section of the state. Our beautiful Lake Flacida on the northeast corner of the campus affords much enjoyable pleasure for the students in most anv season of the year. Those who do not care to engage in the more strenuous phases of athletics do en|oy rowing over this lake. In the winter it affords much merriment for the skaters. The beauty of the lake alone would warrant its position on the campus hut in addition to that it also stimulates our athletics, thus being a double value to the college. New tennis courts were also built recentl exercise. and thcrcbv students can engage in this very healthful In the spring of 1926 the college planted 2900 pine trees on the campus beyond the lake, thus adding to the beauty of the entire grounds. The fact that Elizabcthtown is really seeing its need for the physical development of its students is not only shown by the equipment already existing within the campus walls, but more particularly by the fact that ground is to be broken this spring for a fine new gymnasium-auditorium. This structure is to be erected on that part of the campus which was donated by the class of 1922-23. Funds have been secured from all available sources. The second week of this school year the students met together, reorganized the Athletic Association of the college, electing Mr. George Ruth, ' 27. as president. Under his guidance the athletics " on the hill " have been well organized. The students of Elizabcthtown College are indeed proud of their college campus and the splendid opportunities it affords for these various phases of athletics. We feel, because of these opportunities, a finer feeling of fellowship and deeper understanding is established among the student members of the body.  : rcJXiA.vW g ijj 7 SENIOR-JUNIOR On account of the small number of Senior and Junior girls who play basketball, it was harmoniously agreed upon by the girls of both classes that they should combine and form a team. This was done and as a result a very well balanced team was developed. Most of the players had had but little experience in this particular type of athletics, excepting the captain of the team, Anna Bull, who was a member of a Normal School basketball team for two years and later a member of the women ' s faculty team at Millersville State Normal School. However, with their little experience the team pulled together beautifully, and these girls feel they have gained something in association with each other that sometimes cannot be gotten in any other way but through fair play in athletics. Through the efforts of Professor Elmer Eshclman, as coach, some good teamwork was displayed. Ella Baugher and Anna Landis developed into a good center and side center respectively. Esther Leister and Belle Spangler were splendid guards and fine at passing the ball to the centers and forwards. Fanny Brubakcr and Anna Bull made the goals and showed much alertness, which is needed for forwards. The team was fortunate enough to have two subs — Mary Hykes and Nora Toms who were always ready to fight for their team. Much enthusiasm was exhibited by the girls both in practice and in the inter-class games.  -c MroxiA X9 7r: SENIORS In the fall of ' 26, the Senior class presented an unusually strong team, compared with other years. As the Senior team was handicapped because it could not secure sufficient practice on account of too many other activities, regardless of the difficulties, they showed a fine spirit. A meeting of the boys was called early in the season, and elected Paul Kreider as captain. Prof. Eshelcman was chosen as coach of the Senior team. George Ruth, Paul Keeny and Ammon Zciglcr secured guard positions. Samuel Wenger, Robert Dottercr, and Paul Kreider were selected to play as forwards, and Raymond Brubaker as center. Eli Keeny and Melvin Brubaker were chosen as substitutes. Paul Kreider has had much experience in playing ball and is one of the best forwards. Raymond Bru- baker and Robert Dotterer, who are both over six feet in height, are a great asset to the team. George Ruth and Ammon Ziegler, the heavyweights, hold down the guard positions. All the members displayed a fine school spirit bv the way they played. The boys proved to the other teams that if they wished to win they had to earn it bv hard work.  JUNIORS The class of " 28 organized the First Junior Basket Ball Team in the History of E ' town College. At the beginning of this basket ball season the prospects for a Junior boy ' s team looked discouraging. Seniors, Sophs, and Froshs wondered whether the Juniors could pick up a team at all, for thus far in the history of the college, the Juniors for one reason or other had never organized a basketball team. When the Juniors were asked, " Will you have a team? " they replied, " Yes. " In spite of the fact that the odds were against them, the boys go on the floor determined to do their best, to keep up courage and enthusiasm, when to lose is inevitable.  SOPHOMORES Hail! The Sophomores have the ball! It must be said that the skill that was developed by these players during their Freshman year has been retained. In the Sophomores, we have one of the fastest girls ' teams on the " Hill. " Roop, just naturally tips the ball off to Ebright who gets it and passes it to Garner or Worth, who rarely fails at shooting a goal. Perchance, the ball goes to the other end of the floor, the opposing forwards do not have much chance since Hcckman and Stautfer are star guards. The Sophomores play a good clean game and are both good winners and good losers. Our aim this year has been to uphold our record of last year, and to again put our name on the map. Rah! Rah! Rah! Sophs! Sophs! Sophs!  rojiiiAx: SOPHOMORES When the Sophomore team appeared on the floor for the first tilt of the season, it was quite evident that they would be contenders of the cup. This squad has an advantage over their opponents in Stern, their 6 ft. 3 in. center. It is not a question of who will get the tip-off, but of which direction Stern prefers to knock the ball. Kilhefner and Frysinger at the forward positions arc other big factors in the team ' s success. These two men played together last year and are known as the " Gold Dust Twins. " Combined with the three foregoing arc the crack pair of guards, Brinscr and Thome. It is more luck than good playing when an opposing player makes a goal against these two athletes. However, in the team, there is no exceptional star, as the whole team works with machinc-Iikc precision. No team can be : success. without reliable " subs, " and Esh has done his share in making this team wi  FRESHMEN The Freshman Basket-ball Team is still in its infancy, since none of the players have had any previous basket-ball experience. Neverless, the team trys to play a quick, clean game and hopes to win some measure of success. During the first months on College Hill the girls, interested in the sport met and chose Miss Irene Royer captain of the prospective team. When the girls were urged to come to the gymnasium for practice, they responded with a fine cooperative spirit. Everyone was green, but willing to learn. After several weeks practice. Miss Edythe Arbuckle and Miss Miriam Ncuhauser became our skilled and energetic forwards. The guards. Miss Alverta Lecrone and Miss Irene Royer, and the centers. Miss Mary Hershey and Miss Anna Cassel, although still novices, did their bit in curbing the opposing team. The team and its supporters must be commended for the spirit and interest manifested in both practice and regular games.  FRESHMEN While the fall tennis tournament was |ust approaching its climax, and before the attractions of the outdoors had relinquished their claims on the interest of the students on the " Hill, " the Freshmen began to prepare for the approaching basketball season. A class meeting was held and Richard (Dick) Jacobs was elected manager for the boys. He set to work, and with the co-operation of Professor Myers, soon had two squads practicing regularly. The material was promising, but very few of the fellows had had any actual playing experience. With the exception of Orth, who played with Marietta High, and Jacobs, who played with the York County Acad- emy, none of the boys had ever played a full game with an organized team. However, they worked hard in practice, and soon became proficient in handling the ball. Their passing became so good that when the season opened, it was one of the outstanding features of the games. After having practiced for a time the team felt they were well enough acquainted with each other to elect a captain. As a result of the election, Orth was chosen to pilot the team on the lloor during the season. Under his leadership, and with Ebersole as his running mate at forward, Zug at center, and Yost and Jacobs at guard, they present a hard-fighting, determined, and powerful combination  ir rairH ll£|a rj jL 7 : Volley Ball ' ollcv ball, through the earnest elforts ot Samuel Wcnger t manager;, has been placed among the stand- ard athletic sports of the college. It was the lirst sport to be started on an intramural basis this year and has the credit of having put athletics in full glee. The games were without exception, ' hard fought, full of pep, spirited and well played. Each and every contestant bracing up with baffling speed amid great ex- citement and uncanny placement of the coveted sphere, the championship honors continually sec-sawed in the balance. The secret of this exceptional playing in the heated contests of the tournament was due most and un- doubtedly to the splendid moral support from the side lines by the fairer sex. Such casual remarks as; " Help it over, " " Atta boy, " " we ' re goin ' to win " and " Go to it, Johnny, " etc., were continually ringing in the ears of the playful scrimmagers for coveted championship. The Final Standing of the Teams Won loit Pirccnt Freshman 2 1 .666 Sophomores 1 1 .500 Seniors--- 1 1 .500 Juniors (Jonahites) Frosh ' Soph Tug of War September 27 at 4 P. M., peaceful and calm Placida proved inadequate as a Pacificator between two hostile and opposing war camp the Frosh and the Sophs, who were staged on opposite sides of the innocent Southeastern arm of the lake. The only thing in common among the two rival forces was a heavy 100-foot rope, which was proportioned in three segments, one of which the Sophs held, another was utili?ed in spanning the distance across the lake, while the third belonged to the Freshmen. The contest was closely supervised by the athletic authorities of the college and upon the signal being given, the Freshmen amid the cheers of many enthusiastic spectators manifested their superior drawing power by slowly and gradually introducing the whole Soph aggregation to the chilly H20 liquid of dear old Pacida. Despite all efforts of the Sophs to the contrary, or a second trial they were again mingled with the cooling waters of the lake. A splendid spirit was manifested during and after the contest and it promises to become one of our annual worthwhile events. Tennis Tennis is the biggest and most important of outdoor recreations on the " Hill. " A usual spring tourney is held every year in which girls vie with each other, as do the boys, for supremacy and the cup. Keen and clean competition have helped to make the sport so popular that the tennis managers were able to schedule a special tournament last fall. The tournament this year will be the largest and best ever scheduled on College Hill. In all probability this one will be conducted on much the same manner as last fall ' s tournament. By means of elimination the victor is finally chosen, and in such a manner that every winner and every loser are given a second chance to reassure their victory or retrieve their defeat. There is every indication that class teams will help foster the feeling of clean intcrdass rivalry. Whether a tournament for mixed doubles will be scheduled is not certain, but if not persons so inclined can challenge the student body in general and thus build up this phase of tennis.  ni 19 7 Base Ball Baseball has not assumed a very large part in the role of athletics on College Hill this year, since some new forms of activity, such as. Volley Ball and Speed Ball, have been introduced, and since tennis has be- come such a very popular sport among the girls and boys. Speed-ball is a game which somewhat combines the features of basket-ball and soccer. Last Fall there were no organized class teams in baseball, but, in the few games that were played by pick-up-teams, the Freshman members showed that some real baseball stars have joined the rank of athletes at the college. During the summer of ' 26, grading was done on a part of the athletic licld to make a new diamond and track. This spring the baseball diamond will be made ready for playing, and a grand stand will be erected to furnish seating space for spectators of the games. It is believed that with these new improvements baseball will become a more active and interesting sport among the students. Field Events For the last several years the annual day for field and track events has atrtacted much interest among the student body and even among out-of-school patrons. As soon as the weather is favorable for any out- door activities, many students are eagerly preparing themselves so that they might be able to win some personal honors and also honors for their class. The winners in the contests are given colored ribbons: first place, blue ribbon; second place, red ribbon; and third place, yellow ribbon. The class whose members together score the highest number of points receives a silver cup. That class which wins hrst place three successive years may hold the cup. Last spring the class of ' 29, with Bower as its high scorer in the running and jumping contests, won the cup. This year these field events will be held on Friday, May 13. Some of them will be: running, jumping, pole vaulting, hammer throw, discus throw, baseball throw, and shot put. New ones are added to the list each year. On this day opportunity is given to display varied athletic abilities. We hope to make it a greater day each year. Basket Ball The winter months of December, January, and February hnds basketball furnishing the chief means of recreation at Elizabethtown College. This game is today America ' s most popular indoor game, and has spread to many other parts of the earth. Basketball at Elizabethtown is popular with both sexes, some modifications of the rules being made for girls. Basketball aims to help develop a fine physical body. It also contributes to the building of character by developing the qualities of self-control in trying emergencies, poise in victory or defeat, self-subordina- tion for the good of the team, co-operation, leadership, and loyalty, and an attitude of good sportsmanship. This year, as in the several past years, saw the organization of an interclass league. Each class was represented by a boy ' s team. Keen rivalry was noticeable in all league games. The Freshmen and Soph- omore lassies each had a team of their own, while the Juniors and Seniors combined to form the third of a trio of girls ' teams. Interest was not only manifested on the basketball court but also along the side lines. The loyal b(X}stcrs of each class turned out and encouraged their respective teams to do their best. Each team tried to outdo the others with their class yells and songs. With the bright prospects of a new gymnasium on the campus by the opening of the fall semester, the student body is planning to make basketball far more important part of their recreational program next  Ji The Alumni THE Alumni is the college in service. Commencement Day is the climax and glory of college life, but commencement is only the gate of entrance into the Alumni Association. Every alumnus is born on this day. The alumni is to the college w hat sales are to the salesman, what saints are to the church, what a successful son is to a mother. The glory of a successful alumni is the finest thing that can come to any school. The alumni of Elizabethtown College has meant all that is implied in the above statement to the school. The glory of E. C. is in her students in service. Has Elizabethtown College been worthwhile? Study the work of her hands, as it shows itself in its various fields. Visit the churches and Sunday Schools in Eastern and in Southern Pennsylvania especially and you will find in almost every case one or more former students of " the College. " Take a look into the County Teachers Institute of any of the surrounding counties and note the many familiar faces, which testify in a silent but dynamic way the fact that the spirit and life of Elizabethtown College lives in every hill and vale of many counties. So to the office held and farm and the same truth is revealed. Go to largest and best universities in the world and there you will find those who have first been motivated and inspired in the higher things of life on " College Hill. " Go to the wilds of India or the jungles of . frica and there vou will find those who breathe a praver for the future of EC. These are the things that hold the school up in her daily life. Thev hold and sustain the school at all times. These arc the reasons for which the school exists. Every graduating class forms a better and firmer base from which the school henceforth projects itself. The alumni of E. C. has, as a whole, been more than ordinarily loyal. The Gymnasium-Auditorium is becoming a reality. We hope to sec this structure under roof by September 1, 1927. The athletic grounds have been graded and beautified by the planting of trees. Former students have visited on College Hill more frequently during the past school year than any previous year. The subscription list to the " Our College Times " has been substantially increased. Our alumni has shown a splendid interest in the growth and success of the school. The schcx)! needs their increased and continued support in prayer, finance, visits, and new students. Can you not now decide to send one new student to E. C. for the school year of 1927-28? May God continue to bless and prosper every one who has ever sat at the feet of the teachers on the College Hill of Elizabethtown College. -J. I. B.  EroMi. Gymnasium THH Alumni is in a material wav backing the advancement of the college and this spring will witness another manifestation of its support For the organization of graduates is entirciv responsible for the construction of an up-to-the-minute gvnmasium, to be located on the new athletic held northeast of Memorial Hall. The building will be fully equipped both for athletic and forensic activities and will serve in many capacities in furthering college activities. It will serve as an arena, and will also be available forTcrpsi- chorean purposes, lyccum numbers, recitals, intcr-collegiate debating and other public It will be one story high, with a basement. I t will be located in the triangle between the tennis courts and the new athletic field. The main entrance will be on the north end, with side entrances on the east and west. On the ground floor will be the gymnasium-auditorium, the playing floor of which will be 75 feet in length by 45 feet in width, . t the south end of the building there will be a stage twenty by forty feet. Besides this, there will be two dressing rooms, two instructors ' rooms and two stor.-ige rooms. In the basement will be located showers, locker rooms, dressing rooms and lavatories, besides the boiler room and storage rooms. Ample seating facilities will be furnished by nearly one thousand people, which will fulhll a long-felt need during the Bible conference and at other times when space in the chapel is at a premium. The floor of the building will be of hardwood, with the playing space waxed. The gratitude of the student body goes out to this manifestation of generosity on the part of the alumni. Athletics at Elizabethtown college has long outgrown the basement of Memorial Hall, and the budding forensic and theatrical departments of the school are in much need of expansion. GiBBLE Hall The " Gibble Clan " is functioning in a manner that will materially elevate the worth and prestige of our alma mater. A vision which will be tealized this summer has great influence toward the Department of Science. The Gibble Science Laboratories under construction, promise according to the plans to be equipped with the latest apparatus. A fire-proof building, 140 feet in length and 56 feet in width, con- taining two floors will be the contribution of the Gibble family. It will contain a lecture room for 60 students, a room for boiler and coal storage, a Biology laboratory to accommodate 48 students, two lava- tor ies; a Domestic Science department consisting of three rooms, a sewing room for 24 seamstresses, a storage closet and a laboratory easily accommodating twenty future cooks; a class room for }6 students, an office, a storage room which will be used by the bacteriological laboratory, which will accommodate 24 students. All this will be found on the first floor. Let us go to the second floor where we shall behold one main room and two side rooms for chemistry laboratories. The main room will provide space for 48 students, while each of the side rooms will accommo- date 24 each. There will also be a storage room and two offices in connection with the chemistry labora- tories. This department will occupy half of the second floor. The Physical laboratory for 48 students, two class rooms for 24 students, and an office for this depart- ment, will also be on the second floor. A museum and library will complete the second floor. Elizabethtown College will be proud to welcome these well-equipped facilities so generously provided. Professors A. C. Baughcr and A. P. Wenger arc eagerly awaiting the time when they will step into their new field of endea or. The good that come from these laboratories cannot he measured.   : jrojiTiA rmxii ijj 7 Jokes ' Say, Englc, did you go to Sunday School when you were a boy? " Yes, Kreidcr, I went regularly.
