President and Professor of American History and Philosophy Page Twenty-two Jg-JQ N ' A N £k A Message of Friendship COLLEGE DAYS are days of friendship. They are rare opportunities of the greatest value to the American Youth who has the unique privilege of a four-year College course. Only one in a hundred of America ' s goodly youth who enter the first grade of the elementary school have the glorious opportunity and the heroism to complete the tasks of the four years of College life. This thought alone should awaken a healthy sense of pride and a deep sense of obligation as one ponders the attainment of so noble a record. College friendship is the resultant of a variety of youthful interests and influences brought together from the choicest of our homes. To mingle with the choice products of our noblest Christian homes and the best of our advanc- ing American high school system is an opportunity greatly to be cherished. The breadth of suggestion wielded by the life of classroom, the library, the dor- mitory and the literary center during the receptive and plastic period of youth from teacher, classmate and friend is an endowment for life, the wealth of which is immeasurable. May your college days always remain hallowed memories and may they be the dawn of a greater day of more glorious achievement and abundant suc- cess. As you brighten the corner of your chosen vocation, may lives be en- riched, hearts be gladdened and opportunities be enlarged in the experience of those who shall arise to call you blessed. Then shall you have the inheritance of the pure in heart and purpose both in this life and in the world to come the Divine benediction of Him who leads the way of immortal life. President H. H. Nye.

Dean and Professor of Chemistry Page Twenty-four E T O N I A A Message to the Student Body THE purpose of a college is to transform ugly ducklings into swans. The ugliness is not moral in nature, if it were then the reformatory rather than the college should be called into action. The ugly duckling is rather like the block of marble from the quarry. With a chisel and a mallet the sculptor fashions the crude product into an animated statue. In like manner the " duck- ling " is transformed from the raw material into an animated character full of grace and truth. Practically every small town has in recent years developed its place known as a " beauty partor. " The proprietors of these establishments advertise widely and boldly as dispensers of the much sought after product called beauty. Shakespeare said, " beauty doth varnish age. " Not much more ' than this can be said in behalf of these beauty artificers. The French people say — " beauty without virtue L like a flower without perfume. " The greatest of German poets said, " the ideal of beauty is simplicity and tranquility. " To bring about such a transformation is the first great purpose underlying a real college education. The second purpose of a college is to get people to move in a spiral motion rather than in a circle. Too many people pass their days and years in monotony. Some one has aptly stated this idea in saying that the trouble with a merry- go-round is that we have to get off at the same place at which we got on. We get nowhere. We go round and round. People who have to live day by day in a merry-go-round fashion have to drudge their way through life. They speak wearily of the daily rounds. A college education should help us take the grind out of life. Each day may bring the same tasks before us, but if we live our days in spiral fashion then each day we face the problems from a different angle because of our new elevated position gained each day. Long- fellow expresses the thought beautifully when he said: " P.ut to act, that each tomorrow Find us farther than today. " To create rather than imitate is the third purpose of an education. " Be not like dumb driven cattle, lie a hero in the strife. " To measure the electric charge of an electron, or to determine the diameter of P etelgeuse, or to syn- thesize rubber from the golden rod calls for more than mere imitation. It calls for real intellectual adventure. Creative thinking and creative intelligence and effort are the vital needs of the day. Gigantic problems of industry and international relationships demand solution. Great causes need to be champ- ioned, and profound truths should be upheld. These invite the creative genius and confound the imitator. The intellectual satellite can easilv be kept in ruts, if not by persuasion then by fear and bribery. But the Lincolns, the Edisons, the Pauls and the Lindberghs, strike out over new routes. Thev are not content to follow the proverbial beaten path. They make new oaths. They set new standards, make new records and create a philosophy and reading material for a millenium. A college education should develop a creative intelligence and indomitable courage. The e are the values to be derived from a college educa- tion by a youth vibrant with energy and buoyant with hope. Sincerely. A. C. Baugher. L e.

L C Page Thirty-two Seniors THE 19 3 1 J£ The Senior Class History EIGHT-THIRTY was the hour of meeting fixed by the Chairman of the Executive Council of the Senior Class. This meeting was to be a very important meeting, for all members had been urged to come. All indications pointed to the fact that this session was to be the last and most solemn session of its varied and fragmentary existence. As the appointed hour approached, they straggled in one by one, — veterans of many a bloody encounter and of many a heated battle. While on the arena, battling with the enraged monarch of the range, grim necessity gave them only three alternatives. They either had to tease the bull, throw the bull, or shoot the bull. Most often they chose the middle alternative, for it was most spectacular and most decisive. As they made themselves comfortable in the council room, the conversation drifted into a discussion of past exploits. One of them, upon being asked the press agent question what he thought was the secret of his success, said: " I used to give a peculiar jerk to the wrist when I threw my bulls which gave me a peculiar advantage. I ? ! Here the Chairman arose and, in stentorian tones, called the meeting to order. ' Fellow council members, we must get right down to business tonight, for there is one big item on the docket which will require all of our time. Our illustrious class has entrusted us with the task of drawing up a suitable record of its travails and sorrows, of its escapades and episodes, and of its victories and achievements during its four sojourns here on College Hill. As you will probably recall, I appointed Socrates, the Sage, to draw up such a record. He will now submit it for your approval. Socrates may read ! SOCRATES: I have burned much midnight oil and have relived and re- experienced many scenes in order to bring forth what I deem to be a suitable record of our class. In the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and twenty six, the faculty of Elizabethtown College was confronted with a new lot of raw materials. The provincial and backwoods sections of Lebanon, Lancaster. York and Berks counties yielded of their rawest fruit to satisfy the insatiable demand for stu- dents at Elizabethtown. With the addition of two students at the beginning of the second semester our number was swollen to thirty-seven. Not much of interest occurred during this uneventful year, so I ' ll move on to the Sophomore year. Our Sophomore year marked an exodus from our pristine rawness of the preceding year. Under the guidance of Bob Meckley we had some very- fine times. EB : Mr. Chairman. I would like to offer one addition. I would like to say that as freshmen, we were the first to introduce anything which looked like Freshman regulations, and that it required no Sophomores to enforce them, for we imposed them upon ourselves. IKE: Mr. Chairman, I would like to have another item incorporated into this record. It seems to me that as Freshmen and Sophomores we made a very fine showing in the inter-class track meet. Both years we lost only by a small margin. And also, let ' s not forget those trips to Havre De Grace and Gettysburg. I understand that that trip to Gettysburg and through the Cumber- land valley left a deficit in the treasury. Well, even if it did we surelv enjoyed ourselves. F l l ' age Thirty-four O N 1 A CHAIRMAN: Are there any objections to the alterations and corrections? I hear none. They shall therefore be published in the record. Socrates may read : SOCRATES : As has just been said, we began our Junior year with a deficit in the treasury at the time when we were in most need of money for the publication of our Etonian. However, we faced all our debts squarely, and after all our Etonian bills were paid, we still had some money in the bank. During our Junior year our watchword was a " Bigger and Better Etonian " and under the efficient editorship of I. Wayne Keller and under the frugal business management of Walter W. Eshelman we did publish a bigger and better Etonian. One of the outstanding features of the book was its original art theme which endeavored to portray some distinctive characteristics of Lancaster Count) culture. Eddie Ebberman, our artist, was peculiarly well fitted for the sketch- ing for he knew the difference between the appearance of cabbage heads and tobacco plants, could distinguish between an Amish corner ball and a base- ball, and knew that the cider barrel typified the convivial scenes of Lancaster County more accurately than the whiskey barrel. We didn ' t have many class socials during Our Junior year, for all of us sacrificed for the sake of the book. PLATO: Mr. Chairman, before Socrates proceeds with an account of our Senior year, I would like to add that our book is distinctive not only in that it has an original art theme, but in that it is the only book, up to this time, which has published a picture of the brutal thirteen, et cetera. EB : Mr. Chairman, the publishing of the Etonian was not the only big thing which happened during our Junior year. With the aid of Harry Bower, who joined us at the beginning of the year, we managed to win the inter-class meet by an overwhelming array of points. CHAIRMAN: Are there any objections to these alterations? I hear none. They shall therefore be printed in the record. Socrates read: SOCRATES : I approach with some trepidation the last division of my record, for I realize that it has a strange pathos and portrays more mingled emotion than any other division of my record. Miss Garrett, who joined our class as a Senior, entertained the whole class at her home in Mechanicsburg. I ' m sure the whole class is grateful for the fine entertainment she provided. While many could not go on the sleighing party, last winter, it was still a " howling " success. Some interesting " stories " have been told about the sleighing party, " stories " I would not now attempt to relate. Well, it was quite cold that night, I admit. It seems altogether fitting and proper to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt appreciation to Professor A. P. Wenger for the friendly advice and admonition he gave us during our Freshman, Sophomore and Junior years. Due to the fact that his duties called him from the campus during our Senior year, he could not continue to be our advisor for the remaining year. Dr. J. I. Baugher kindly consented to serve in that capacity. We wish to thank Dr. Baugher for the fine service he has rendered us. Before we leave our beloved institution, let us pledge fealty to her ideals, pledge loyalty to her standards, and pledge devotion to her cause. CHAIRMAN : Are there any further remarks ? I hear none. The record shall therefore be printed as read. Is there any further business? EB : Mr. Chairman, I move that we give three cheers for the institution in which we have spent so many happy days.

Idvisor Prof. H. H. Nye, A.M. IN T the fall of 1927 fifty industrious looking freshmen entered Elizabethtown College and started out on their great adventure in the search for knowledge. During this year Benjamin Hoffman was chosen as president, and fulfilled the duties of his office efficiently and capably. Many vivid memories of Freshmen days are still lingering in our minds, among them being our successful defeat of the Sophomores in the annual tug-of-war, Freshman Social, and the success of our ladies in winning the intra-mural basketball championship. Our Sophomore year was equally eventful. After having given the Fresh- men the opportunity of pulling us through the lake, we moved on to fields of greater adventure. A fine caliber of school work was exhibited and a fine class spirit prevailed throughout the entire year. Some of the outstanding events of this year are the social held at the Hershev Inn and the fall picnic at Penryn Park. At the close of this year many of our number entered the teaching profession in the rural schools, but in spite of this exodus, a fine group again returned for their j unior year. This year has been a great flowering season in our college career, and after having taken a look at our class one can not help but reply that we are a group of " Jolly Juniors. " Many interests claimed our attention, both academic and social. Everyone expended his utmost effort in publishing a successful edition of the Etonian. In social affairs the Juniors have been leaders. The moonlight cross-country hike in the snow, serving as a substitute for a supposed sleighing party, recalls many pleasant memories to all of us. Gradually we are approaching the top of the ladder of our college career and as we see visions of the approach of our Senior year, we are stretching every nerve to qualify as " dignified " seniors.

Page Forty-seven THE 19 3 1 jM ' sn HELEN AXE York, Pa. A fair, jolly, and a cheerful lass is this member of our class. " Billy " is full of life and expresses it in most every way believable. She is a gir quite popular with everyone on the hill. " Billy ' s " manipulating of the ivory keys certainly brought melodies rich and rare upon the quiet air. Her productions we can truly say " hath charms to soothe " and the power to drive dull care away and bring " jest and jollity. " Billy is one of the most sociable girls on Col- lege Hill. A party is indeed pepless without her radiant personality. We hear that Billy aims to be a teacher. We, the class of ' 31 wish her hap- piness and prosperity in whatever she under- takes. EVELYN BELL Pottstown, Pa. This ambitious young lady with laughing eyes is one of the popular members of our class. " Bell " is a splendid all-around girl, and is very well liked by all those who know her. She is an excellent talker, an ardent and con- vincing debater, and a student of the highest rank in all of her classes. " Bell " is always busily engaged in some form of activity. As Associate Editor of the Etonian she was indispensable; she served as a member of the Y.W.C.A. Cabinet in a most commendable manner, and in social affairs she is quite active. Whatever you undertake, Bell, you have the best wishes of your class for your success. Activities: Debating (1, 2, 3); Y.W.C.A. Cabinet (3) ; President, French Club (3) ; Assis- tant Manager, Debating Association (3) ; Secre- tary Student Government (2) ; Associate Editor, Etonian (3) ; College Times Staff (2, 3) ; Press Club (3). grr a-W Bss nge Mgggi Page Forty-eight L O N 1 A N j£ GRACE E. BOSSERMAN York Springs, Pa. A sunny disposition and a bubbling laugh dis- tinguish this member of our class who has favored us with only one year of her company. As a loving and sincere friend Grace cannot be surpassed. Possessing much ability as a reader, she has won her way into the hearts of more than one audience. Grace has taught several years before returning to obtain her degree, and this fact coupled with her studious application aids in her scholastic achievements. As a mem- ber of the Student Volunteers, she has been active in deputation work. To you, dear class- mate, the class of ' 31 extends its most sincere wishes for a happy and successful life. Activities: Student Volunteers (1, 2); Stu- dent Council (1, 5); Etonian Staff (tf ; Glee Club (3). DOROTHY BRUXGARD Loganton, Pa. Here is our sweet Dorothy from Sugar Valley. She is quite a studious young lady and a kind and loyal friend. Dorothy is much interested in Student Volunteers and she has contributed much to their success. " Dot " is quite a pleasant per- son and is always playing prank s. We know she likes this life, but it seems that her visits to the regions of " Purgatory " are especially de- lightful, (you may ask Dorothy why). She has decided to devote her life to Christian service and «e know that with her shining qualities she cannot help but succeed in this field. Tn the hall her pleasant voice is not often heard, but we bear rumors of many delightful times in her home jusi off the campus. Her classmates hope that her high aims in life may lead her on and on to a greater joy in Christian service. Activities: Student Volunteers (T, 2, 3) ; Vice President, Volunteers (3) ; Secretary, Student Council (2) ; Treasurer of Y.W.C.A.

" Crouty " presents quite an anomaly; from Souderton, yet dislikes sauerkraut. Fortunately a desire for sauerkraut is not essential to suc- cess in basketball. For two years Trostle lias been the star center for the blue and the gray team Trostle is an active member and officer in nu- merous organizations on the bill. Though a student of economics, business has no. been considered to the exclusion of all other affairs.

He is a sportsman of the first rank being actively interested both as a nimrod and an ath- lete, this, however, not to the neglect of regular school activities nor yet of social affairs. When not engaged in any of the above duties or en- tertaining his roommates or disposing of (apple juice) he may in all probability be found by following the " campus roadway to the beginning of Orange Street.

' Tis remarkable to ponder the attainments within the scope of the human encephalon. Amos began his education by learning the A B C ' s. but soon decided that A ' s were sufficient for him. While mos excels in all fields, his prefer- ence is science. His avocation consists of the the delivery of philosophical discourses upon the fickleness of women, for Amos is an avowed misogamist. Lest he become over exposed to the culture of the institution Amos decided that it was un- wise to hibernate within the precincts of the campus.

This gentle lass from Middletown is heloved hy all her classmates who have found in her a faithful and sincere friend. She has never been able to comprehend why the educators have coined the term Social Science ; to her nothing is further removed than socials and science. Science, especially Biology and Algebra are her pet aversions, whereas parties are one of her chief delights. According to the classification of public speakers, she is numbered among the fast set, but under the competent supervision of her Prof., she has greatly im- proved this " velocitous " propensity.

It has a two-fold distinction in that it is the class that to- talled the largest enrollment of Freshmen and Sophomores ever registered at the college. W 7 e started out the first year with seventy-four. These seventy- four kindly bent down to the Sophomore regulations, but because of certain difficulties we did not fully enforce the regulations this year. The class enjoyed a class social on the hill, a splendid social at the Mt. Gretna skating rink, and the final banquet. We regret that so many of our number will not be back next year, but yet we wish them the best that their chosen vocation can give.

Page Sixty-two Freshmen THE J 9 3 1 rr S L C Page Sixty-four J z JQ N ' Freshman Class OFFICERS President Toil N WeNGER ' ice President Farl Baugher Secretary Ruth Landis Treasurer David Detweiler Faculty Advisor Prof. Guy Saylor THE INNOCENTS ABROAD OX the third lav of September, in the year of Our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and twenty nine, there assembled on the patroons of Gibble Creek sundry sorts of new material for the marriage factory. To the " powers that he " this event merely marked the annual invasion of a new class of Fresh- men distined to become the bane of professor and upper-classmen alike, and to follow in the footsteps of its innumerable predecessors. But to the bank of innocents on the banks of the stream, the name of which one of its number was in the distant future to establish as a tradition, it was the beginning of a new existence, the hidden depths of which they could not fathom. But the Inno- cents plunged bravely ahead, and that evening the first step toward their distant goal was taken when at a banquet in their surprised honor, they were introduced to all those who might wish to have dealings with them in the future. A day later, all opportunity to turn back was blotted out and the Innocents were formally inscribed on the ponderous tombs of the institution. And on the fifth day of September the Innocents actually entered into the four year task before them. .Meek though they were, the Innocents early unified themselves under the patient direction of Professor Guy R. Savior. The perennial Wenger was singled out to precede this unification. He was surrounded by three aides, Earl Baugher, Ruth Landis. and David Detweiler, whose purpose is to further shep- herd these sheep who had previously been going about promiscuously as having no such circumferential directing agent. Among the laity shining lights soon appeared. The first to be heard from was Paul David Seibert ; P.D. had just returned from parts unknown, but not in time to smother the dialectic sobs of one blonde damsel — Helen Klein. To the better fortune of the institution a deliverer arose, cured her homesickness, and she liked him. From Ouarryville came the Groffs ; alike only in name, Vivian the vivacious and Owen the Red. In as close proximity to the latter as standard type will permit must be recorded one from the mushroom section — Wilma Sprenkle. Landsdale is quite suf- ficiently represented by Ruth Davis, Grace Light, and Gertrude Minninger. Then we can ' t forget the two connivers of the day-student room — Mae Eshel- man and Helen Heisey ; The Siamese twins — Esther Bucher and Kathrvn Brubaker to whom may be added, by virtue of habitat, Rachel W ' engert ; the pianist and wittiest, Genevieve Jefrry and Mae Beahm who share a domicile with the famed cat and others who bear names significant about this institution ; the Weaver sorority — Fern and Alta and Grace Kimmel with Lewis Heisey wishing he could qualify; the long and short of the class — Ray Sherrick and Page Sixty-five rY« THE 19 3 1 J £ Kathryn Demmy; Grosh, the big butter and egg man from Milton drove; Homer Reber and Irene Schrack from down Reading way; Keener and Ebling from Bethel over, the former of which has quite a drag around the kitchen: the blonde cheer-leader from Mc Allisterville — Isabel Van Ormer; Shoemaker, the warbler and her cohort Shuman : the opposites from York — Frey and Harlacher ; the big man around the gym — Joseph M. Bobula ; Amnion Meyer who is what Johnnie Wezmer thinks he is; Shearer, the gentleman from Dillsburg; the unholy alliance — Otis, Fridy, and Bishop, the first two of which confess musical inclinations; Hess, the misogamist (? ' from Royersford ; the still small voice — Luella Lehman ; Esther Markley, the daughter of a butcher, and the objective of a Bucher; Misses LeFever, Martha Bucher and Grove who complete southern Lancaster county; the late comers — Miss Alexander who brought Gibble and Rosenberger into closer fellowship. Miss Wolfe and Mi s Gish, the diligent; Mr. Witacre, and the intrepid Buffenmeyer who is wearing a bare spot on the bank across the road from the apartments; Misse Amy Heisey, LeYerne Loveless, Grace Louchs, and Betty Hershey who are now ab- solutely the last word on Memorial Hall; Ab Linehart the pious; Weller whose curiosity runs away with him at times; the fifth of the Graces. .Grace Miller, interior decorator and trustee ' s daughter; the artistic Ruth Rover; Harry Ger- lach, the long-distance commuter; the deserters — Misses Holsinger and Haver- stick, and Mr. Layser who couldn ' t wait; Amanda Gish who prays toward Middletown and gets an answer from the Fairview Apartments ; the vagabond lover — Jake Herr ; and Marie Blanche Raber who summarizes the whole story. During the second week of their sojourn abroad the Innocents were assailed by the egotistic Sophomores who insisted that they adopt certain customs the impart of which the administration could not appreciate. After two weeks of persecuting, the Sophomore men became pusillanimous and desisted, but the women clove persistently to the last vestiges of authority which remained in the path they had initiated. To deliver their women from the yoke of the oppressor who forced them to undergo ridicule in the dining room and strenuous exercise thereafter, the chivalrous brothers crossed the marshes to the bards of Lake Placida. After the Sophomores, unwillingly and surprised had been forced to test the temperature of the lake, the Innocents consented to save the honor of their superiors and took the rest of the punishment. By the end of the first semester the Freshmen were neither so innocent nor so meek and had acquired sufficient saz ' air fairc to devise the best social function that the environs have ever known. The distinguishing feature was the performance of the Arcadians, a local orchestra. So unusual and desirable, indeed, that the remainder of the institution wanted to duplicate the feature at its following function, but found to its chagrin that the underlings had executed a true coup d ' etat ; for try as they might, they could not imitate the feat. From this event on the Innocents found much easier traveling their lot, and their progress has been phenomenal. They have proved a true asset to the institution whose name they proudly uphold. They have left their mark in their classroom records, in athletics, in debating, in music, in literature, in religious activities and in every field to which they have turned their talents; and they have left a record toward which future first-year Etonians may be proud to direct their efforts.

I lie purpose of this Club is to advertise the College through the various activities in the leading newspapers of the nearby cities and to keep the home folks informed as to the progress on the Hill by advertising matters of interest in the local papers. The Club is under the direction of a Board of Managers consisting of Professors Ezra Wenger, Daniel Myers, Guy Savior, and J. X. Herr and the two Senior Representatives, Mary Hoffer and Norman Reber. The entire mem- bership of the Club constitutes the staff of reporters. Only those students who have made an average of ninety or above in Eng- lish Composition are eligible to be members; but in spite of this, it is a project for the benefit of the entire school and requires close cooperation by non- members of the Club as well as members.

A GREAT interest was shown in the organization of this group, which bore evidence to the fact that a large number of students were lovers of one of the finest arts namely music. The Ladies ( dee Club was organized early in the term and met weekly. The club participated in rendering a chorus selection at the Founder ' s Day Program. They also took part in the Christmas Cantata. Aside from present- ing these programs, the club prepared a musical entertainment which was ren- dered in the gymnasium-auditorium in the spring of the year. The strains of music which were afloat and penetrated the atmosphere of " College Hill " assisted in the perpetuation of " College Life. " There is a certain charm about music which seems to grip the feelings of students, and at various times it is certain that this group drove away the blues of many, and cheered those who felt a bit homesick. The final canata, " Saul, " was rendered in the spring, in which the Boys ' Glee Club and the Ladies ' Glee Club combined.

The club met and organized early in the year preparatory to practice for the various musical presentations on the " Hill. " Among the classical produc- tions the club prepared, was the famous Russian peasant song, " The Volga Boatmen. " Massa Dear, taken from the New World Symphony, and Goodbye, My Lover. Part of the personnel also participated, in connection with the Girl ' s Glee Club, in the presentation of the John S. Fearis arrangement of " The Chambered Nautilus " and the Christmas Cantata, " The Mystery of Bethlehem " by Rogers. The presentation of " Saul, " a dramatic cantata marked the final musical pre- sentation by the combined Glee Clubs for the vear.

They have been kept busy filling appoint- ments for a variety of programs and occasions. These programs consisted of quartet numbers, trios, duets, solos, both vocal and instrumental, and read- ings. Secular and sacred music was used. However, most of their work has been done in the field of sacred music. Selections that have the purest, and highest sentiments, that bave a universal appeal to the human heart are included in their repertoire. This group of singers, during the school year, bave had opportunities to render many programs. Their service through song was felt and appreciated at the College, many churches in the adjacent communities, and at the Alumni Clubs of Elizabethtown College in Lancaster and Philadelphia. A number of students from Elizabethtown College were sent, as representatives from there, to the high school assemblies of York, Reading and Lancaster to give programs. This quartet was among the group. This phrase is characteristic of the quartet, " My life flows on in endless song, how can I keep from singing? " Page Eighty-four TON I A N C£ Ladies Quartette First Soprano E.

The spirit of cooperation was manifest in this quartet. During the winter months they were called on repeatedly to render music at evangelistic services in Elizabethtown and adjacent communities. In this particular work their reward was an inner feeling of happiness, for the joy rising from the service rendered surpasses the incon- venience and pains of sacrifice. Not only was their participation limited to sacred music rendered in churches, but they functioned on " College Hill " on special occasions. They fur- nished special music at the 30th Annual Bible Conference held at Elizabethtown College.

This early organization remained permanent throughout the term. The first few months were spent in practice and very shortly thereafter the singers were kept busy filling engagements at entertainments, spelling bees, church services, banquets and evangelistic services. All types of music were rendered. In sacred music, " Gods Way, " " When Mother Prayed, " and " Break Thou The Bread of Life " were used. " Deep River " was a special negro spiritual. " Hangin out de clothes " and " Kentucky Babe " provided humorous music and close harmony. Some of the programs rendered by the quartette included a sermonette by Galen Kilhefner and readings among which Edgar Guest ' s. " Heap O ' livin " and Eugene Fields. " Little Boy Blue " were favorites. Among the outstanding privileges the quartette enjoyed throughout the vear was a tour through Western Pennsylvania and Maryland, and the opportunity to represent Elizabethtown College at the Lebanon County Alumni Association banquet and the general conference at Hershev.

McDannel ' 30 DURING the early part of the first semester, a new musical organization appeared on College Hill, known as the Aeolian Male Quartette. After practising together for some time, this group made their first public ap- pearance at the evangelistic services conducted at Centerville United Brethren Church by Rev. John L. Smoker, one of the College ' s successful student-pastors. The appointments at which they served were varied in nature and the songs ranged from the sacred type to those of a humorous and entertaining character, including a number of negro spirituals. A few of the selections used were " That Beautiful Land " , " The Old-Time Religion " . " Shout all over God ' s Heaven " , " Po ' Li ' l Lamb " , " Massa Dear " , " Rosenthal " , " Sweet Little Girl of Aline " . " Jog Along, Roys " , and " My Wild- wood Rose " . In addition to local appearances, music was furnished for a number of evangelistic services, rural school programs, and other community functions, the most important of which was a half-hour concert rendered at the conven- tion of the State Farmer ' s Protective Association held at Harrisburg during the Annual Farm Products Exhibition. Page Eighty-seven THE 19 3 1 The Spring Cantata ABOUT the middle of May the students of the College presented the Dra- matic Cantata. Saul, under the sponsorship of the music department. This Cantata consisted of Five Acts with Nine Scenes. In the first act we see Saul seated on his throne, surrounded by his at- tendants and courtiers. A group of damsels sing pleasing melodies to cheer him. e also have the picture of Samuel rebuking Saul because he did not carry out the Lord ' s command. In the second act we see Saul in deep meditation. Abigal makes her ap- pearance with a chorus of ladies. We find that Saul is very much disturbed and Jonathan appears on the scene and watches his father with an expression of pity. He succeeds in soothing Saul by his pleasant song. In the third act we see Saul the King, Jonathan, his son, and Michal the daughter of Saul. The people of David are trying 10 give comfort to the king, and ask God ' s blessing upon him. Saul is also told about one, a messenger of God, who can plead with the Lord to have pity on Saul. The lullaby of Michal with her own daughter in her arms is a beautiful picture. David at this time comforts Saul. Also the Herald comes and tells that the enemy is approaching and the chorus sends the soldiers by a stirring song of triumph on to victory. In the fourth act we see Michal in reverie. Jonathan enter hurriedly telling of victory. We also see David in meditation with the Messenger of Comfort trying to cheer him. In the fifth act we are impressed by the scene at the witches place. This is a weird, uncanny scene in which the Witch of Endor is the chief center of attention. It is also in this act that we see David crowned king after the tragic death of Saul. The costumes for this Cantata were designed by Miss Catherine Alexander. The stage management was in charge of Mr. L. G. Mumma. The Cantata was presented before a large and appreciative au lience. Each member who took part in the presentation of the Cantata did beautifully and the audience appreciated the efforts that were put forth. The characters were as follows: Saul Galen Kilhefner ' 30 Samuel Norman Reber ' 30 David John M. ( Wrasse ' 30 Jonathan Elwood Boyer ' 32 Michal Mrs. I). E. Myers Abigal Grace E.

It has sponsored numerous social activities, which have helped to unite the interests of all its members. In cooperation with the Y. W. C. A. it has sponsored the Lyceum Course, which in talent and quality, equals that of any previous year. It was also instrumental in securing Dr. Henry Crane of Scranton to deliver two stir- ring and thought provoking lectures on current problems of Christianity as they are confronting our modern youth. The association was represented at all the conferences with which it is connected. Page Ninety ETONIAN The Y. W. C. A. Cabinet President Marion Geist ' 30 ' ice President Jessie Woodward ' 31 Secretary Mary Minnich ' 32 Treasurer Evelyn Bell ' 31 Faculty Adviser Mrs. Lavinia Wenger UNDER the supervision of a most capable president, Marion S. Geist, the Y.W.C.A. has assumed an influential role in the student activities on College Hill. The " Big Sister " plan was the first event which gained distinction for the " Y " , with the " Get Acquainted ' ' Social, as the culmination of that plan. Early in the fall a mem- bership drive was inaugurated. To create an enthusiastic interest in the drive among the student body, the Y. W. sponsored a moonlight social at Keener ' s Park, where the faculty and the gentlemen were guests of the " Y " . The work of the " Y " throughout the year has been varied and versatile. Not only has it been active in social circles, but in spiritual spheres it has not proved lacking, since the " Y " has attempted to help the fostering of a Christian atmosphere on the Campus by its various Chapel programs. It has cooperated with the World Peace Movement in packing a box to be sent to the children of the Philippine Islands. Not unmindful of the needs of the school, the " Y " furnished the College dining-room with new curtains and made improvements in the " Y " room by the addition of newspapers, books, and magazines. Through the hearty cooperation of its members and the support of the students and patrons of the school, the " Y " Bazaar, Tea, and Annual achieved outstanding success. Practically every woman on the Hill is a member of this busy or- ganization, and each has cooperated willingly in crowning the year with singular success.

Idv ser THE Student Volunteer group of Elizabethtown College is composed oi young people who have dedicated themselves to special missionary service in whatever way God may direct, at any time, in any place, and at any cost. Any student who desires to dedicate his life to definite Christian service may become a member. The interest manifested throughout this year was very good. Deputation teams composed of volunteers gave many programs in the local churches of Eastern and Southern Pennsylvania. In the weekly meetings of this group the programs are in the form of dis- cussion led by a member of the group, a devotional program, a talk by a faculty member or by some other worker in home or foreign mission work. As a financial project foi the year the Volunteers have pledged themselves in support the work of Sara Shisler, a former member of the group, who is in charge of the Girls School at Garkida, Nigeria, in West Africa. L C Page Ninetv-two JV- jo n ' The Thirthieth Annual Bible Institute THE Bible Institute held during the week of January 12-19 was the thirtieth annual Bible Institute of the College. The Institute has been held each ear since the College was founded and each year finds more persons taking advantage of the fine training offered. The Institute this year was opened in the town Church of the Brethren with an inspiring message by Elder M. R. Zigler on the theme: " A Deeper Religious Consciousness " . Rev. Zigler was a regular instructor throughout the week. He led the discussions on the problems of Missions, a subject with which he was thoroughly acquainted, as he is the secretary of Home Missions Board of the Church of the Brethren. Another forceful and inspiring instructor was Elder Rufus D. Bowman of Elgin, Illinois. Rev. Bowman is the Secretary of the Board of Religious Education in the Church of the Brethren and has been an active leader among the young people of the Church. He lectured daily on the problems of Sunday School Administration, and on other living issues in Religious Education. Rev. Bowman was also in charge of a distinctly new feature of the Institute, namely, that of giving attention to student problems. Every evening Rev. Bowman discussed with the boys such vital problems as peace, and prayer. Elder M. J. Brougher, pastor of the Brethren Church at Greensburg, Pa., lectured daily on Great Bible Themes and problems of Pastoral Administration. Every night throughout the week Rev. Brougher delivered a most inspiring sermon on some phase of Evangelism. Elder Albert D. Helser, pioneer missionary to Garkida, Africa, gave the missionary addresses at the week-end Young People ' s and Missionary Confer- ences. Rev. Helser ' s messages were very challenging, a proof of which is seen in the pledging of over $6,000 for African Missions after one of his messages. Other instructors and speakers were Dr. J. S. Flory, of Bridgewater College, who spoke on the early educational and mission work in the Brethren Church, and Dr. C. B. Heinley, principal of the York School, who gave an address, using as his subject, " Our Greatest Modern Need " . Mrs. Wenger, of the Col- lege faculty, led the girls in their conference conducted each evening prior to the regular sermon. fi e Dr. Henry H. Crane Gives Two Lectures The Second Semester was appropriately opened by the Y.M.C.A. by bring- ing to the Campus for two days, Dr. Henry H. Crane, of Scranton. On the evening of January 21. Dr. Crane spoke before the entire student body on the subject of Being a Christian and how we obtain Life. Following the address, Dr. Crane was the center of a large group of fellows who asked him many questions for over an hour. L . Page Ninety-three THE 19 3 1 The following day Dr. Crane spoke in Chapel, using as his subject the text of the " Narrow Way " . " Narrow Way " to some lias been interpreted to men " Narrow Lite " with inference that being a Christian limits life and the " Broad Way " in turn has been sought because of its supposedly free and un- restricted outlet for life. We were reminded that the " Way " is not as import- ant as the " End " . If a broad way, in the end. lands a man in jail, he has not life at its best. The " Narrow Way " that leads to life, about which Jesus spoke, is illustrated by practical life every day. The first law to greatness in the Spiritual Realm is discipline; it is hard to really be a Christian and not many are really willing to follow Jesus by living day by day according to His teachings. S 5ye Opportunities for Spiritual Development on College Hill ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE is an institution owned and controlled by the Church of the Brethren and primarily intended for the education of her own young people, yet her opportunities are open to everybody, regardless of creed, Christian ethics are upheld as the standards of living and Christian character is respected with the highest regard and with an almost sacred rever- ence. Her motto, " Educate for Service " sums up the real aim of the school. Many opportunities for spiritual development are offered to all. Through- out the year, especially in the early fall and spring a number of vesper services are held on the campus. These help to create a very reverent atmosphere and help everyone to have a consciousness of the presence of the Master. On the dormitory hall prayer meetings are held throughout the year for those who wish to avail themselves of this splendid opportunity of coming in closer communication with their Savior. A mid-week prayer service is held each week in the chapel under the leader- ship of some representative from the Y.M.C.A. ; Y.W.C.A. or the Student Volunteers. These services proved very helpful, and helped us to keep in closer tune with the infinite. As a result of these meetings the divine element in the heart of every student was brought into closer touch with the supreme divinity as portrayed in Jesus Christ. Daily chapel services are regularly held throughout the year, at which compulsory attendance is required. Faculty members usually address the stu- dent body at these services, although occasionally other programs were also rendered. The Y.M.C.A. and the S ' .W.C.A. gave bi-monthly programs, and Dr. H. K. Ober, pastor of the town Brethren Church, usually had charge of the Friday morning service. As students leave Elizabethtown College, these inspiring experiences are some of the things which will still linger in their memories. c Page Ninety-four Social Activities THE 19 3 1 Socials OX September 2, 1929 College Hill again resumed its customary activity with the convocation exercises serving as the attraction for the numerous students. Old and new students, parents and friends thronged to the chapel where they were heartily welcomed by the new President, Prof. H. H. Nye. There were present, representatives from the local civic club, and commercial organizations who stressed the necessity for a bond of cooperation between the colony on the Hill and the local community. The address of the occasion was delivered by the Dean of the College, Prof. A. C. Baugher on the subject, " The Scientific Man. " Special music was rendered by the Men ' s Quartet. To in- spire a love for E. C. among the newcomers the Alma Mater was enthusiastic- ally sung by the older students, faculty and alumni. Upon adjournment the entire school posed on the front campus for a picture. GET ACQUAINTED SOCIAL The evening of September 4 brought the first school social of the year. The auditorium was the scenery of activities, and early in the evening the hall was filled with sagacious upper classmen, all accompanied by the more or less homesick freshmen. Upon arrival each individual was presented with an iden- tification made possible by a tag. The main feature of the evening was the introduction of the faculty to the student body, and the introduction of die freshmen to the student body. The latter was done through the Big Brother and Big Sister plan under the auspices of the Y.W. and Y.M. The evening was spent in plaving informal games, in a general friendly manner, scattering in order to meet even- new student. After the serving of refreshments the partv adjourned, much to the regret of some new acquaintances and some older ones too ! Y.W.C.A. SOCIAL In order to create an interest in the Y.W. membership drive, the Y.W.C.A. invited the entire student body and faculty to a moonlight hike and corn roast at Keener ' s Park on September 13, 1929. About five o ' clock in the evening a long stream of hikers could have been seen winding their way toward Keener ' s Park. The main feature of the even- ing was the roasting of an enormous quantity of corn over hot ashes. While this rather long and slow process was being accomplished the fair maidens of the Y.W. Social Committee served their guests with an abundance of delicious viands in the correct picnic style a la emily post. An added attraction not on the program was a philosophical dissertation by a sagacious senior and a ver- dant freshman. Games were played by those who were not interested in the magnificent scenery of this park with the exception of the Student Council members who had the uncanny propensity of peering in the darkening unknown of the glen. After all of the wanderers and star-gazers had been rallied, the hike homeward began. The distance was somewhat shortened by the singing of songs and much merriment. BALL OUTING Saturday, October 12 brought a day that is hereby anticipated by the stu- dents of E. C. All work is laid aside on this momentous day, when the entire Page A inety-six N I A college unanimously journeyed to Mount Gretna to celebrate a day of festivity and fun. Roller skating claimed the attention of young and old, amateurs and professionals. Those who preferred not to skate, amused themselves by ob- serving the fancy hand spins and wavering waltzing executed by the amateurs. Others found pleasure in playing volley ball, in riding the merry-go-round, swinging, etc. At noon the Social Committee delighted each and all with a sumptuous repast. Due to their tendency for overeating many were obliged to hike to regain their accustomed equilibrium. The woods and hills of Mt. Gretna furnish an excellent opportunity for this pastime, especially for those who are attracted by nature ' s autumnal charm. However, nature called in yain to the loyal devotees to roller-skating, who returned to their sport with renewed ze t and enthusiasm. Four o ' clock saw groups of happy, but bruised and stiff col- legiates returning to the Hill. However despite these tendencies students ex- pressed their appreciation of such an enjoyable occasion. HALLOWEEN SOCIAL Spook-, witches, a mellow autumn moon, corn shocks, bobbing apples — it is Halloween Evening in the College Gym— grotesque bizarre figures went their way to the rendezvous of the spirits, where a ghost of a by-gone age welcomed each newcomer with a chilly grip. The Gym soon was filled with these strange figures, who marched gaily before the reviewing stand of the faculty. Prizes were awarded for the most superlatively exceptional costume and then the real fun began ! Holloween games in charge of a capable committee, soon made the hall ring with laughter and mirth. In a faculty contest Miss Bowman displayed her remarkable celerity in tying Prof. J. I. Baugher ' s erstwhile necktie. Grace Hollinger entertained the group with an appropriate selection read in an ex- cellent manner. Upon the serving of the refreshments, many of the students, learned, to their surprise that dwelling as spirits in ethereal realms had not diminished a whit their ravenous appetites. CHRISTMAS SOCIAL December 19 and Christmas of course; a social was in order, but one of a slightly different kind. As a variation from the usual custom, a semi-formal party was staged in the Gym. The Bible, English, and Music Departments assumed the responsibility for the entertainment of the evening. The Biblical story of the birth of the Savior was depicted anew in a charming and delightful little play. Various readings were given relative to Christmas and the Christ- mas spirit. Selected music was rendered by the Ladies Quartette. Instrument- al and vocal selections also were included in the program. The audience united in the singing of Christmas carols. A unique feature of the program was the presentation of Christmas Greetings to the guests. Delicious refreshments were served and the evening came to a close with exclamations of " Merry Christmas. " VALENTINE S OAL Valentine ' s Day caused many hearts to skip a beat upon the receipt of a lovely valentine, but the advent of the evening with the Valentine Social in- creased the excitement and exhilaration. The only entrance to the Gym was a large welcoming heart, through which many eagerly stepped, only to find themselves in a hall of hearts. Much amusement ensued with the search for hearts with newly-found partners. Games were played into which all entered Page Ninety-seven rY« THE »93 1 J% K with unrivaled enthusiasm. Competitive contests between the classes aroused much interest. The Seniors seem to have improved somewhat during their four years at I- " .. C, at least, in so far as rapid consumption of edibles is con- cerned. A diverting ' reading on the subject of love letters was also given as an added feature of attraction. Light refreshments were served in keeping with the occasion. SOCIAL ACTIVITIES ON COLLEGE HILL Elizabethtown, like every other small college, offers distinctive opportunities for the cultivation of intimate friendships. Perhaps the most appealing course in its curriculum is that of Campusology. By every virtue of its romantic scenery, its secluded nooks and its matrimonial propensities. Elizabethtown is exceptionally well qualified to grant a degree in this course, and many there be who have grasped this golden opportunity. In the Autumn, rowing, hiking, and the like serve as recreational stimulus but with the advent of winter, the more formal social activities swing into action. During these months the various classes divert themselves by holding socials of some nature or another. The Freshmen, wishing to attain some needed dignity, held a semi-formal social in the Gymnasium, whereas the Soph- omores and upper classmen desirous of returning to their unrestained youthful davs enjoyed very informal parties. Many of the Sophomores proved the Law of Falling Bodies, by participating in an evening of roller skating. The Seniors, overcoming the traditional notoriety of sleighing parties, spent a very pleasant social evening. The Seniors also enjoyed the privilege of celebrating the birthday of one of their members in a very delightful party at Mechanics- burg. The Juniors, however, cognizant of the fact that their physical welfare was being neglected due to the strenuous Etonian work, called a halt, and spent an evening in a cross country romp through the snow especially delight- ing in unknown chicken yards (ask any Junior). The Junior-Senior Banquet is always an event which is keenly anticipated. Full moon is especially wel- comed on College Hill, because of the delightful advantage it affords for the development of a closer intimacy between the fair inmates of Alpha and Mem- orial Hall, and the bachelors of Fairview Apartments. The Debating season, although of a more argumentative natuie brings with it. its due proportion of social activities. It is needless to assert that these activities are perhaps the most potent factors in promoting a hearty spirit of good-will and understanding among the various colleges. A friendly, informal chat, a bite to eat after an argumentative discourse, leave pleasant memories which time does not quickly efface. Not only does E ' town aim to create friendships among the students. Manv a student can testify to enjoyable evenings spent in the home of some professor, and not a few have assumed the gentle disciplining of the junior Faculty, in the absence of their busy parents. The Faculty-Senior Banquet has ahvavs been an impressive occasion, due, no doubt, to the feeling of responsibility, which such an event places upon those who will soon assume the role of instructors. Spring, and an influx of Spring Normal students! It is customary for the school to entertain the new students, shortly after their arrival, with a picnic social on the campus. This social event has always been a source of pleasure to both new and old students ; not only has it been a bond for the strengthening of old friendships, but new ties frequently result. Social functions follow and thus social activities are lulled to rest. Page Ninety-eight ATHLETICS s Sk THE 19 3 1 M s ■f. o Z ■s.

Considering this fact Elizabethtown has made a fine showing. Although we suffered several defeats and won only four victories, most of the games were hotly contested from start to finish and the team showed a fine fighting spirit under all circumstances. Notwithstanding however, the outlook for next rear is very promising and much credit must be given to-the earnest, sincere, and efficient efforts of " Coach " Mateer. Earl Wenger scored the highest number of points. " Earl, " at forward, usually played a spectacular game. He specialized in shooting long shots, which generally found their mark. Captain Henry Hackman was the second highest scorer. " Hack " at guard, played a very good game and he must be commended for his gentlemanly conduct as captain of the team. Trostle Crouthamel jumped center. " Croutv " was the third highest scorer and will be especially remembered for his fine playing in the Juniata game. Harry Bower at guard and Emmert ( " Jaky " ) Herr at forward both played hard and fast games. Their occasional spurts toward the goal generally resulted in a field goal. John Wenger also played a tine game and will be remembered for his fine teamwork and clean play. Waldo Dick, substituting for " Croutv " at center also made a fine show- ing. Carl Frey, James Lauer, and Clyde Deiter served as subs and in case of necessity they made a tine showing and played a hard game. The following is the 1929-1930 schedule and scores: E.C.

Her accurate shots have ad- vanced the score in most of the season ' s games. Eva A. Bollinger — Forward — Manager " Eva " is our dependable forward. Her quick pass work and cooperation have been determining factors in the games. Wilma Sprenkle — Center Willi " Will " as side center and " Cap " as center the team found a combina- tion that could scarcely he surpassed. Due to needs in other positions, later in the year. " Will " demonstrated her ability quite as effectively in the center. Helen Klein — Side Center There she goes — fast as lightning — Klein. This is .Klein through and through. She finds considerable difficulty in controlling her temper but that only seems to enhance her vigorous defense. Jessie Woodward — Guard This is our quiet but steady member of the team. She is known for her keen and accurate pass work in getting the ball to the Blue and Gray goal. " Subs " Ru ' .h Davis, Gertrude Minninger, Marie Raber. Fanny Ruth Heisey, and Irene Rover were very capable of stepping into any position and doing their best amidst struggling barriers. The following is a list of the games played with the scores: E.S.

James Lauer was the high scorer for the team. " Jimmy " always played a fast game and whenever lie got the ball we were all sure of a field goal. " Jimmy " also served as an efficient sub on the regular varsity. John Wenger also was a high scorer for the team and played a very nice game. Ezra Bucher, jumped center for the team, and displayed excellent skill in passing and shooting " . Owen ( " Red " ) Groff, Earl Baugher and " Joe " Bobula were the other members of the squad. All of these fellows had experience in high school basketball and played hard and fast games. Galen Kilhefner served as a sub. The following is a schedule of the games played and scores: E.C.

Elizabethtown suffered defeats in both cases, although an excellent showing was made in every case by all of our fellows. For the 1930 season only one meet was scheduled with Susquehanna Uni- versity on May 10. Judging from the material available, the prospects for a successful season are evident. First, there is Harry Bower, our leading track man who stars in the hundred and two-twenty dashes, as well as in broad jump- ing. Crouthamel will be a possible candidate for pole vaulting and high jump- ing. Paul Fisher will possibly try for the shot-put and the discus. Fisher made an excellent showing in these event- las; year. Divet will possibly be entered for the eight-eighty dash, and Zarfoss for the hundred yard dash and pole vaulting. " Jimmy " Lauer will be a promising candidate for the mile and two-mile runs, and the high jump. " Ruck " Harbour will possibly be out for the hurdles, while Norman Reber, a speed distance man. will try out for the half-mile run. " Red " Groff well also be a candidate for the high jump. When this team has been moulded into shape it is bound to compare favorably with am of our rivals. £- ' age ( )ne hundred nine THE 19 3 1 Tennis THIS is only the third year that Elizabethtown College has engaged in in- tercollegiate tennis, but in spite of this fact she has made a tine showing and has established an enviable record.

Class of ' 31 takes this opportunity and uses this space to express its appreciation to the indispensable personnel pictured above. e Americans are justly accused of being ' unconcerned and " matter- of-fact " in everyday matters. Every student, every member of the faculty, and every member of the trustee board is the recipient of some form of service rendered by members of this group. The well trimmed lawn, the promptly shoveled walks, the beautifully trimmed trees adorning the campus, the well heated dormitories and class rooms bear testimony to the work of Mr. Groff (Shorty) and .Air. Gerlach (Toby). The promptly served and well prepared meals, as well as the splendid health of the students, bear testimony to the efficiency of Mrs. Keeney and her helpers. The willingness of this group to assist in preparation for banquets is a tine example of sacrifice. The clean corridors, windows and water fountains bear testimonv to the efforts of Mrs. Miller. To the individuals mentioned above and all those not mentioned who con- tribute their service to the college, we therefore, dedicate this page of the " 1931 Etonian.

When he did not return for three hours, the sheriff went after him, and found him asleep on a lounge in the living room of the house. He had made a brave effort with his inventory, however; he had written down, " Living room — I table. I sideboard, 1 full bottle whiskey. " Then the " full " had been crossed out, and " half full " substituted. Then this was over- lined, and " empty " put in its place.

We have hoped that the readers of the foregoing portrayal or betrayal or what-you-will of the classes have been pleased with the content. If you have, we congratulate you. If you haven ' t we at least give you credit for sticking it to the end. even unto this conclusion. To be sure, our work is incomplete, for who could write such a history of mankind in so short a book. We feel that a few thousand more pages should have been employed, but then we are human and the typewriter runs hard. The Editorial Staff wishes to take this opportunity to thank the class for its cooperation in this great undertaking. The staff also wishes to thank Mr. Smith, our photographer. The Canton Engraving Company, our engravers, and the Pittsburgh Printing Company, our printers, and the representatives of the Freshmen, Sophomore and Senior classes for their patience, great help, and masterful work in making the write-ups for their individual classes. It has been a great pleasure to compile this data, and we hope that it will serve as a cherished keepsake and comforter to the members of our illustrious class in their old age.
