CKJOT for the grandeur of her V. buildings, nor for the luxury of her surroundings do we love Etown, but rather for that spirit which is en- tirely her own. She was founded on the highest principles of Education that the modern world has known. Her motto, " Educate for Service, " is indicative of the aim of her founders; this ideal of service has all through the years been exemplified in her sons. The Etonian Staff, by presenting this cross-section of school life, has endeav- ored to incorporate into this book, a bit of the distinctive atmosphere of Etown College.

' ■ ' ■nun 11 THE PRESIDENT ' S ETONIAN HOMILY ONE of the most significant benefits a student may receive from a sojourn of tour years in a liberal arts college is the widening of his horizons. Life should now be fraught with new hopes and ideas; it should be richer and deeper in the appreciation of beauty and truth than it was at the outset. It is the acquisition of these new vistas of delight that will prove to be a boundless reserve against ennui, a source of rest and recreation amidst the strenuousness and tensity of modern life. The regrettable fact is that so small a group of our citizenry can avail themselves of the opportunities of acquiring a culture that gives meaning to life. It is for this lack of horizons that we find in our age of mechanical efficiency a populace of " imaginatively sterile, hopelessly utilitarian, and earthbound in vision. " The college student, in order to appreciate the tidier meaning of life should con- tinue after school days to be a student of the world in which he lives. He should aim to know more of the beauty of the heavens and to call the Stars by name; he should look for the glistening gold and the symmetry of the dandelion ; he should delve into mother earth and see the past recorded in its rocks; he should note the emergence ot civilization from its rude beginnings and continue his interest in human progress; he should follow the modern achievements ot men in the political and in the scientific world; he should take cognizance of the thought ot our great religious leaders and be at home in the moral progress of society. It is desire ot this sort that helps one to see life whole and live at his best. To do less than this is to be only half alive. As a further help to a fuller appreciation of the winsome in life one needs to con- tinue the cultivation of a sound taste. It is important that one be able to recognize excellence everywhere. One who has caught the spirit of the masters can never there- after be content with the ugliness and the frivolity that our industrial age continually tuists upon us. The student who has learned to appreciate the artistry of John Mc- Cormack will turn in disgust from the modern crooner; the lover of the noble de- lineations of an Ibsen or a Shakespeare will scorn upon the cheap and tawdry per- formance; the admirer of the Sistine Madonna will not waste time upon obscene pictures and burlesque shows; the student who has developed an appreciation for the truly great in poetry and in the essay will frown upon the yellow journal and the salacious story. Thus by the revelations of beauty and truth we breed a healthy dis- content with ugliness and cling to the praiseworthy. It is my hope that each generation of college students may become imbued with such a knowledge of truth and beauty and have acquired a genuine touchstone so that life may become more beautiful, that sunny skies may be over the humdrum of the activities of life, and that manners may become more gentle, speech more helpful and gracious, and home more sacred and restful.

It they had the chance to make decisions, wouldn ' t they " turn the trick? " Well, the trustees sometimes think it they were students they would do just a bit differently from the way they do do at times. Probablj this is due to the fact that the students are young and some of the trustees are old and none are very young. Now I ' ll let you in on some of the problems with which th;y have to wrestle. A large part of the constituency thinks the College is too FRESH. Some of the students think it ought to be FRESHER! The trustees are supposed to satisfy both elements as the College must have the cooperation of both if it is to continue to function. Then, too, the purpose of the College is clearly stated and the trustees are charged with keeping it true to the ideals of its founders. Some of these ideals do not mesh perfectly with some of the ideals of the students. This is especially true regarding the emphasis that should be given athletics. Following are some of the reasons for the attitude of the board on the football game: 1. The hundreds of young men killed. 2. The commercializing of the game. 3. The wrong slant it creates in the mind of the student, making the basis of efficiency physical — with, to say the least, questionable morality — instead of intellectual, moral and spiritual. 4. It calls out the most robust, who do not particularly need the physical develop- ment, and rejects those who do need it. This view of the trustees must not be construed to mean that the board would prohibit physical exercise. On the contrary, the development of the body is one of the outstanding objectives of the College. However, these are some of the reasons the trustees would prefer intermural games to intercollegiate contests. I am just stating this to let the students get a part of the viewpoint of the board. Then there are the financial problems. The students can not afford to put up buildings and equip them. This is done by public spirited men and women, principally by members of the Church, under whose auspices the College is conducted, and by those who are in sympathy with its ideals. he unfortunate financial conditions existing have made it impossible for a large number of these patrons to pay the amount subscribed for erecting buildings and pro- viding sufficient endowment for the College to standardize. Then the board was com- pelled to appeal to our faculty members to come to the rescue. This, we are glad to report, they are doing, thus helping out in this time of financial stress. The board does not expect the College to rest its reputation on its athletic standing. Nothing is so encouraging to the board of trustees as the many reports we get of our graduates ' success in the business world and in the work they are doing in the ministry and the field of Christian Education. Then, too, we are especially proud of the many high school positions so creditably filled by them and of the excellent work they are doing as teachers in the grades. I am sure I am speaking for the entire board when I congratulate the Sophomores for the reception they gave the Freshmen early this year. That kind of spirit is in- dicative of true culture and is in harmony with the ethics of the Master Teacher. Page eighteen The Etonian, 1933-1934 Rear row, reading from left to right— G. A. W.

HISTORY OF ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE ELIZABETHTOWN College was founded by the Church of the Brethren in the year 1900. It arose from a recognition of the increasing need for educating young people in an atmosphere permeated with the spirit of Christ and His teachings. From the beginning an academy was operated in connection with the College department, but in 1925 the academy was discontinued and all the resources of the institution devoted to the pursuance of college work. On December 19, 192 1, the College was accredited by the Department of Public Instruction of Penn- sylvania for the preparation of teachers in both the elementary and secondary fields. Elizabeth town College was one of the first colleges in Pennsylvania to be accredited for the preparation of high school teachers in the commercial field. About seventy-five per cent of the graduates of the College enter the teaching profession. The State Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in 1928 placed Elizabeth- town College on the list of colleges approved to give the pre-legal course. The graduates of the College are admitted as candidates for graduate study at Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, and others. Membership in the Association of American Colleges is now pending. The examination of college seniors in the colleges of Pennsylvania in 1928 by the Carnegie Founda- tion for the Advancement of Teaching, ranked Elizabethtown College tenth among the forty-two colleges included in the test. The College has a beautiful twenty-five acre campus on which are situated five buildings which are entirely devoted to the work of the College. The total assets of the College according to the Treasurer ' s Report of August 30, 1930, are $745,445.65, of which amount $200,001 is endowment, with $191,215.59 additional in interest-bearing pledges. Recently the College received a gift of $46,860 as an addition to the endow- in ' nt within the next five-year period. The enrollment has grown st?adily during the last five years, as the following figures show: The total enrollment in all courses for the year 1925-26 was 391 ; for 1926-27, 453; for 1927-28, 474; for 1928-29, 473; for 1929-30, 511; for 1930-31, 478. The average attendance during the academic year is 160. With the growth of the College her alumni are yearly filling more important positions in the teaching profession and in other fields of service. With an en- thusiastic alumni supporting Elizabethtown College, a bright future is facing the institution. Page twenty-five THE TOP The Etonian, 1933-1934 h i u ■ i.. i: .1 i i xii... lK,.

Since it is natural for her to be quiet and to spend a large amount of her time studying not many of us have the privilege of knowing her intimately. Those of us who do know her, though, have found her a friend worth having and jolly company always. Her willingness to cooperate made us accept her as a real classmate even though she has been with us a comparatively short time.

She is a constant and effectual worker. Home duties have demanded much of her time since she has been in college, yet she has not failed to take her share of the responsibility and work on College Hill.

This year, as President of the Women ' s Student Association, she has won her wax into the hearts of all the students by her ceaseless efforts to make their life at Etown more pleasant.

Maryland, 1927-29; Palmerton High School, Pa., 1929-30; Hanover High School, Pa., 1930-33 We stood back in awe when Mr. Witmyer first came on our campus. He did not brag about it, but everyone sensed the fact that here was a man of experience as well as unusual ability. Since that time Charlie has become an invaluable friend to many of the students, particularly the Seniors. We had a glimpse of his humor at the Christmas banquet where he was the very efficient " Roast-master.

Fuhrman is an extension student who will graduate with the class of ' 3+. He is at present a teacher in the Penn Township Grammar School, near Hanover, Pennsylvania. During the Spring Session of 1933 he lived on the dormitory; it was then that he became known to the students, who recognized him as a jovial friend. Mark is a hard-working student and an athlete of some ability, having starred in golf, baseball, and tennis.

Roop 52 West Ridge Streel Carlisle, Pennsylvania Page thirty-four The Etonian, 1933-1934 THE SENIOR CLASS Kenneth Senior President LESTER BUCHER Vice-President Anne Reese Secretary Harry Savlor Treasurer The Senior year in college is like a glorious sunset. It comes at the end of a per- fect day and is so poignantly beautiful that it almost hurts one to look at it. As we sit and face this sunset, this climax of our college life, we see in it streaks and darts of various hues. Clouds are not lacking in this sunset, and yet as we look more closely at the clouds we see that it is their presence that makes the whole picture more glor- iously beautiful. It is around the clouds that the brightest colors are found. We are awed with the sight. The scene has a depth of meaning for us ; we sit in quiet reverie and go over the events of our short stay at Elizabethtown — that wonderful day of col- lege life on which the sun is now setting. There was the morning when we started this adventure. At first we were timid and weak and half-afraid to attempt anything so new. Then the Spirit of Elizabeth- town, sun-like, beat down upon us. It warmed our spirits, encouraged us; it gave us subtle promises of great things to be received if we would only go bravely on. We went on, and surely enough, the promises materialized. The first semester we had our Freshman party. It was a kids ' party, in the gymnasium of course, and was a great success. Many of us still go into ecstacies when we recall Professor Wenger playing leap-frog. The Sophomores assailed the fort but a group of minute- men formed and guarded every portal. Our would-be visitors merely added more zest to the occasion. " Ster " Bucher and " Red " White represented us on the Varsity basketball squad — and did it in a fine way. Throughout the whole year friendships were formed which can never be severed. So strong were these ties by the end of the first year that many real heartaches were caused by the arrival of the summer vacation. The forenoon had advanced ; the Spirit of Elizabethtown had become a vital part of us. We went to our homes that spring hoping that the summer months would lit- erally fly so we could be back at Elizabethtown. It was that tense period just before noon on a summer day, so full of expectancy and yearning. We came back for our Sophomore year. That was a glorious year — truly the high- noon of our college day. Not quite all our classmates were back, but we added a few new members to our number. We had become used to college routine then but had not gained the added responsibilities of Upperclassmen. The Sophomores seemed to be in everything, including mischief. " Ster " Bucher was still shining in basketball and Anne Reese was doing excellent work in debating. The whole class seemed to be seething with life. The Spirit of Elizabethtown had entered into our souls. Near the end of the first semester there came a lull in our exuberant spirits. Two of the very dark clouds that we find in our sunset appeared in our life. " Lewie " Han- Page thirty-five The Etonian, 1933-1934 ■ ' 1-1,11 ■ - -Ul ' IlM-LU ' llllin lillUliV 1 til ' l ' i Uphill U. ))II1IH n.

Such times are hard to understand, but as we look back at them now we see that they were experiences which strengthened our Friend- ship. That term, Professor Wenger invited us out to his home in the country. It was a pleasure to meet his parents, for by that time their son had become very closely as- sociated with our class. Two high spots of the evening were horseback riding, in- dulged in by only the most brave, and singing around an open camp fire. Such a gathering is always precious to a group of close friends such as we were; this one had a special meaning for us when we remembered that we were going to part within th next few days — and many were not even coming back to Elizabethtown with us the next year. As Juniors we noticed a decided change in the tone of our college life. This was the late afternoon of our college day. There was a lull in our spirits; we forgot to live each day, but seemed to act wholly in preparation for some ultimate, remote goal. The lighter jollities were thinned out of our life and things of more lasting value were given precedence. It was a time of hard problems and main ' of them. They seemed to be assailing us from all sides. Each problem had to be squarely met and clearly thought through to be a definite solution. Since the Senior class was small, our class was given an unusual amount of re- sponsibility. Alva Harsh was a prominent person on the campus in many lines. Two quiet, unobtrusive persons, Lydia Wagner and Kenneth Senior, who had never seemed to take the lead before, were beginning to display their true merit. Both girls ' de- bating teams and one of the boys ' debating teams were captained by Juniors. Work on the Etonian was started by the Juniors, but after a lot of persuasion they were convinced that the logical thing to do was not to publish the book that year, but to postpone it until the following year when it would be done as a joint project of the Junior and Senior classes. All the while we were getting nearer the sunset-time. Since we ' ve come back for our last year the glow from the sunset seems to shine out over all our activities. Friends are more precious, places and events have more meaning. We give our whole hearts to our work. We are Seniors now; we ' ve reached the top round of this ladder. And we ' ve proved at last, beyond a doubt, that Seniors know the least of all college students. We are always conscious of the sunset. We look forward to its coming with singular fascination. Its promised glory thrills us and yet hurts. We watch for it breathlessly lest the sunset will come and go and the sun will be gone from our world. But we don ' t want to lose the Spirit of Elizabethtown ; we want to take it with us wherever we go to give others a glimpse of the joys we ' ve had here. As we sit here in quiet reverie, alone with our thoughts, we suddenly realize that the sky is dark. The sunset has passed ; what we feared has come. But as we remain, silently waiting and hoping, we involuntarily raise our eyes and lo! the heavens are again alight. Ribbons of light are coloring the whole sky, streaming forth, not from the place where we last saw the sun, but from the opposite direction, proclaiming for us and for our Alma Mater the dawn of a new day. Then we know that the Spirit ot Elizabethtown has come back to us to be a vital part of us always.

Often, especially when we k ee them so thoroughly enjoying a good time, we covet for ourselves a place within this circle.

Stauffer Curry President Eby Espenshade Vice-President Mary Brumbaugh Secretary Harry Smith Treasurer We, the class of 1935, who now refer to ourselves as Juniors, can look back upon the past two years and can recall our history with joy and satisfaction. Our class has successfully crossed the line of demarcation which distinguishes upperclassmen from underclassmen. True, this third year of the four-year game of college has given us added responsibilities and respect which we have looked forward to throughout our years as underclassmen. It is not without a deep feel- ing of obligation that we attempt to uphold the torch which has been handed to us by those preceding. As we take inventory we find that in the past we have taken a fair part in school and inter-class activities. To present the athletic picture first, it has been found that a number of our classmates are on varsity squads in basketball, baseball, and tennis. It would be unfair not to include inter-class activities; for example, the tug-of-war which, incidentally, we lost in our Freshman year. However, we at least gave the opponent a pull for his victory. The class basketball team was quite successful, having won all the games played during the Fresh- man year. The second year our record was not so good. This by no means discourages us because we feel that distinction in mental prowess is just as worthy as fame in athletics. Our social life? Our Alma Mater could not possibly allow us to be forgetful of that. Who is there that could even forget our escapade on that bright moonlight night of our first party on the campus? It was that night that the " Soph " hordes, in a futile attempt to rout us, were met by barred doors and locked windows. Then again, who Page forty-six The Etonian, 1933-1934 1 1 , , 11111 1 1 i I ■ j i i iiii i i i nun " i i i ii i i i i i a i n il ll lli i I ' NIW l V ilium 1 1 limn 1 1 mull 1 ' I n Il i i- ' -J ' -£- ' .TX " .

Our social functions reached a climax in the house party at Mt. Gretna. It was here that all our campus rules were laid aside and for two days we lived in a veritable Forest of Arden. Some of the men became interested in the culinary arts, others in consuming the celestial bodies, and still others in consuming victuals. In addition to this professional activity there were some very interesting sidelights such as bird lore, roller-skating, etc. The Juniors have also been interested in many extra-curricular or- ganizations — musical, dramatic, literary, and scientific. They have given much earnest effort in furthering the cause of their respective activities. In the group projects which we have undertaken, we have shown remarkable ability and cooperation. We are mindful of the fact that in order to realize the best of success each one must forget his own immediate ends and strive toward the common goal. We, the class of 1935, in reviewing our first two years of college life and noting the extraordinary cooperation of the members of the class, have entered this year with a hopeful attitude toward our remain- ing years. Upon completing our four-year record we hope to be able to look back with a sense of satisfaction for this stay on College Hill. Although in our record we find mistakes, we hope to overbalance these with our accomplishments. 1w Page forty-seven phomores i he power thegi file e us. I o ee ouroeiveo uo ' tthet jee us.

Leaning out the window of the dean ' s office to get a better view of the unusual cloud formation, she saw what appeared to be a great army of reluctant scholars impelled forward by the pride of doting parents. Some- times the cloud was bright and sometimes dark, spotted accord- ing as it was more or less impregnated with wit and follv. This phenomenon seemed to a person of such learning and research as E. C. to be extraordinary and worth investigation. But upon closer contact she decided to hold the forts until all threats were over. Freshman traditions helped a lot. The cloud hung about for days and days, not always to the best interests of the upperclassmen. Early one afternoon the day became exceedingly faint and doubtful. A partisan group pressed at a convenient distance from an interesting scene on the lake. Rope tuggers, though upon level ground, could not keep steady. When freshmen met sophomores, it was certain that the shore of the lake was considerably enlarged. Some time later the cloud descended and covered the gymna- sium. Seeing it, the sophomores flew to battle, but because of age and corpulency they were unable to prevent the traditional frolic. Next year the cloud returned just as big and blacker. Zuck won the tennis title; Frey championed the golf prize, " Marty " was Page fifty-four The Etonian, 1933-1934 i mm i m ii i i v « uriiiiw ■ « muni w ■ iimim » « miiiii i y ilium 1 1 yi min 1 mini I » mum 11 m ii im min i m r wwi i i « i m the basketball star; and the fans followed sophomore cheer leaders. Near the beginning of the second year, the cloud changed its character from that of the menacing storm cloud with its indi- vidualism to that of the friendly fleece which is so much the part of a summer day. For some time the freshmen really felt that night for them had come to stay. But to their surprise and pleasure the sophomores not only left them in peace but crowned the jubilee party with a formal recognition of their place on the college campus. Once the cloud caused a great deal of worry on the Hill. Even the professors lifted wondering hands to the gods, while the upper- classmen declared there were no gods. Every cloud, nevertheless, has its silver lining and all lament the departure of two-year sophomores and proudly welcome back those continuing their work under Elizabethtown College.

M. Wenger. This year ' s Freshman Cl ass promises to contribute much toward the culture which prevails upon College Hill. Although, like all Freshman, this class does not lack conceit, we can detect a certain restraint, a certain dignity which may finally blossom forth to adorn the real, lasting impression which the class will make upon College Hill culture. It is our purpose here to call attention to those few personal contributions of the members, which, though soon forgotten, will in the future help to recall more vividly the picture of our classmates as we knew them. There are a few among us who have demonstrated their ability to forget distracting influences and keep " plugging. " Of Ada Backenstose, Garnette Martin, Gae Huffman, and Hilda Gibbel, we can truly say, " only the workers win. " Then there are those who believe in some spice with their sauce. Leah Musser ' s hearty laugh and Alexander Glassmire ' s droll humor have loosened not a few tight situations. We cannot help but remember Marie Murphy ' s generosity, Virginia Den- linger ' s pleasing personality, Esther Myer ' s amusing tendencies, Zelda Slau- baugh ' s ability to nurse children, and Isabel Powell ' s timidity. Then, too, we have that Irish lass from Middletown, Jessie McKinstry, who knows her English grammar as well as Harold Fornwalt knows his speeches. There are two, Dorothy Snyder and Alice Demey, who hold to the proverb, " The Early Bird Gets the Worm. " We will always remember Helen Shertzer and Lillian Arnold as two bright girls who have proved that consistent perseverance gives results. The Freshman Class has also been fortunate to have among its members those athletically minded ministers, Lawrence Hoover, W. Lewis McDonald, and " Eddie " Lander, better known as " the fighting parson.

Herbert Miller, we can see great possibilities of leadership. We want to call attention especially to Edna Little, who, true to her name, is a lively " little " blonde. We are also pleased to point out our diminutive Kate Smith, in the person of Dorothy Baker. Another pretty little blonde, Elizabeth Stauffer, together with her roommate, Kathryn Snyder, has demon- strated the truth of saying, " Curiosity is one form of feminine bravery. " Speaking about musical ability we are proud to present Edna Barnes, our high C soprano, and Robert Gottshall, " the Flying Dutchman, " who literally flies over the ivory keys. Still another group of talented Freshmen — the domestic science group. Alma Hartman, an ideal minister ' s daughter, intends to teach the science some day. Sadie Yost is already acquiring practical experience in the College kitchen and dining room. Among the dish throwers we see Clair Trout, with his ready smile, and Donald Royer, who with his quiet, yet sincere leadership has accom- plished much as President of our class. Last but not least among the " domes- tics " are Mary Hess, our attractive waitress, and Shelley Miller, our sure-fire ladies ' man. We are also glad to possess a number of fine athletes: Bella Kapp, the silken-haired blonde, Ruth Bishop, a real basketball flash, and Ethel Woodward, a distinguished guard. From the boys we present Grover Artman, a hard- working center, Paul Hertzog, a quiet lad from down Ephrata way, Wilbur Weaver, our tall center, and Robert Trimble, a varsity guard. Then there are the four local boys who made good in the Ford Company, John Engle, John Hertzler, Harold Schantz and Leo Kob. It is also our privilege to point out to you Harry W. Hamme (the only " Hamme " in the class) who gets quite a bit accomplished despite his size. We can also point out Russel Hackman, who blushes prettily, and Violet Cassel, who knows the effect of eyes upon Fresh- men boys. Anna Jane Brubaker has exhibited unusual ability in telling stories, Leona Reinhold in minding her own business, Ruth Ulrich in " consuming the moon, " Mary Buterbaugh in telling ghostly stories, Anna Zarfoss in laughing (or should we say giggling), Abram Hoffman in making " clean sweeps, " and Arthur Hollinger in " painting " his way through college. Then there are Luke Buffenmyer and Elwood Lentz whose " chawming personalities " have enlivened many a reception room gathering. When it comes to really extraordinary women, we have two, Polly Hamilton, who hopes to practice medicine some day, and Margaret Leas, the only Freshman girl who can truly say that she lived in the boys ' dormitory. Under Harold Hollinger ' s veneer there is real gold, while there is real music in Dale Danncr ' s trumpeteering. In concluding the Freshman contributions we present Frank Eckhart, " The Speed King of the Freshman Class. " Fage sixty-three The Etonian, 1933-1934 Ej3 j gccg .bjr:- 11, ' .

They sometimes see one or two as they come back for some special occasion or to visit friends, but this does little to throw light on that group of which we have rather a hazy idea, that group we call our Alumni. This year, however, the College put on a project which did bring the Alumni back to Etown — for no other reason than that they were Alumni. We refer now to the Homecoming celebration held on our College Campus February 12 and 13. Friday evening, February 12, the Alumni and friends of the College were invited to be at the Alumni-Student Auditorium-Gymnasium as guests of the Sock and Buskin. Since this was the opening event of the celebration, President Schlosser took the opportunity to welcome the visitors to our campus. This he did in a most delightful way, calling to mind, through reiteration of his college pranks, many of the priceless experiences of all Etown people. The program presented by the Sock and Buskin was thoroughly enjoyable — and most fitting to the occasion : they first presented a clever farce, " Will You Marry Me? " which showed the development of love-making from the Revolutionary days until the present time. In " The Trysting Place, " their second presentation, many persons in the audience were reminded of the popularity which certain favorite spots on the campus had " when they were young. " Saturday forenoon an Alumni meeting was held. The group was addressed by several of the Alumni, including Prof. H. M. Arnold, ' 25, now an instructor in the William Penn Senior High School at York, and Dr. Charles Weaver, ' 26, prominent physician from Manheim, Pa. Aside from this more formal part of the meeting, some very helpful informal discussions were held. Saturday afternoon all guests and students were invited to the Science Building to witness the displays put on by students in the chemistry, physics, and biology depart- ments. To those persons particularly interested in these fields, this was the most enjoy- able part of the week-end. Everyone, whether specially interested or not, found some- thing about the exhibit which made the time wel l spent. At a tea, sponsored by the joint Y ' s and held later in the afternoon, an excellent opportunity was afforded for reviewing old times and becoming re-acquainted with old friends. It was here that the true spirit of the Homecoming was most outstandingly manifested. At the dinner in the dining room that evening we had another opportunity to mingle informally. This was enjoyed to the utmost. The basketball games that evening brought the Homecoming program to a close. The gym was crowded with enthusiastic spectators rooting for their Alma Mater. The E. C. girls put up a most valiant fight against the Moravian girls. So closely contested was the fray that the crowd, with one accord arose from their places in vain efforts to urge the girls on. The boys ' game with Juniata College was not so closely contested. However, the Etown boys fought hard and not one of the visitors had any reason to be ashamed of his Alma Mater ' s present students. On the other hand, the Alumni dis- played the true Etown spirit; the future alumni were proud of them. We, the 1933-34 student body at Etown, present this resume of the Homecoming celebration by way of recognition of one of the College events which we hope will become a permanent custom here.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT Elizabethtown College believes in government of the students by the students. For this purpose we have three student organizations. The Joint Student Association has the place of the admin- istrative forces in our national government; the two Councils, Men ' s Student Council and Women ' s Student Council, have legislative and judiciary powers. The members of the Joint Student Association, three boys and three girls, are elected by the student body in the spring of the year to hold orhce during the entire following term. Persons are elected from each class at the beginning of each term to represent the students on the Councils. The Dean of Women and the Dean of Men are automatically a part of their respective govern- ing bodies and are present at all government meetings. The activity of the government — including the two cou ncils — is wholly constructive. Practically all of the social functions which are held throughout the school year are sponsored by the Student Association. If any changes seem to be needed in school customs, or if any lacks are noticeable, they should be reported to the Student Associations who will make the necessary corrections. Incidentally, this includes the enforcement of the regulations governing the student body. This sometimes necessitates punishment and actions which, for the moment, seem destructive, but which, if carried on in the proper spirit, are thoroughly constructive.

V. C. A. The Big Sister movement, the teas held throughout the year, the regular bi-monthly meetings are all parts of the broad activities of the V. W, We join with the V. M. C. A. in presenting the annual Lyceum program. This year a special treat was arranged for the members of the " V " cabinet. This was a camp- ing trip in the West Virginia mountains during the last four days before the opening of the fall session. Early in the school term the activities of the organization for the entire year were planned. Each one of the officers and cabinet members realizes her responsibility and is carrying out her work whole-heartedly. Altogether, the V. W. C. A. is trying to fill its members with a feeling of the beauty of life and to make them want to live up to the purpose of the organization, " To live, unreservedly, Jesus ' law of love in every relationship, and so to know God.

Because of the combined endeavor of the V ' s for several years, the 1933-34 school term opened with the new Chapel pews installed as a gift of the Y. M. C. A. and the V. W. C. A. Our local " Y " joined with twenty other colleges of our region in sponsoring a Student-Faculty conference at Albright College. Dr. Robert E. Spetr was the principal speaker at the conference. Fifteen fellows from Etown attended this conference; each reported it to be a high point of the College year. Regular meetings are held every two weeks. The program committee lui presented a variety of programs which have brought most of the fellows to the " Y " Room. Speakers have been secured to present life in many different fields. Very interesting was the discussion on " The Ideal Girl. " The " V " Room has been beautified by curtains presented by the Y. W . and by the addition of potted plants. In cooperation with the Y. W. a five-number Lyceum Program has been presented for the benefit of the community and the student body. Morning Watch in the " Y " Room is a new feature of our activities this year and has brought about a keen feeling of fellowship among the fellows on the dormitory. The deputation work of the group at Patton Trade School has provided an opportunity for many of our fellows to get practical experience in leading others to appreciate Christ as a life companion.

With the largest membership in the history of the organization, an intensive program has been carried on both on the campus and among the Churches of the College district. The bi-weekly programs have brought a variety of thoughts in as variable manners. We hall never forget the vesper services or the Consecration service by the lake. The Bridgewater conference in ' 33 and the Juniata conference in ' 34 each served to deepen Christian ideals and actuate Mission endeavor. Having the President of the t ' nited Student Volunteers among our group for one year permitted us to get in close contact with the program of the Church. The Volunteers as a group contributed to the work budget of the Bittingers in their work in Africa; thev also secured the contributions of other students and local Churches for this project.

C Baucher Faculty Advisor The opening of the 1933-34 term at Elizabethtown brought such an increase in the number of ministers on the campus as to bring about an organization of these men and the Prospective Ministers into a group officially named the Ministerium. Dean Baugher was selected as the faculty advisor of the group. Bi-weekly programs have been held, problem discussions, and talks by outstanding ministers from the surrounding churches have been the major part of the program for the year. Several of the ministers have been filling the pulpits of surrounding churches as guest speakers. Three of the number have regular student pastorates. The fellowship brought about by this organization has been very uplifting to both the Ministers and Prospective Ministers on the campus, and to the Student Body as a whole. Since a majority of the Ministers are Freshmen the future for this new organ- ization appears very encouraging. Page seventy-jive The Etonian, 1933-1934 i-a. iii i n. i l . ' ' .

This organization has replaced the Science Club of former ears. Its membership includes individuals who are seeking a major or a minor in science or mathematics and who have maintained a high scholastic standing. Active membership is confined to Juniors and Seniors who have fulfilled the preceding requirements and have been considered by the membership to be worthy of such distinction. Membership for lower classmen, termed " associate membership, " is open to any student who is taking it has taken one or more semester hours in science, who has a high scholastic standing, and manifests an interest in scientific subjects. The purpose of the Sigma Zeta is to stimulate interest in science, to clarify the knowledge " t science by practical applications, and to present recent scientific developments. The club, sponsored by Prof. Shortess, is carrying on several scientific projects. Among these the one that is most widely participated in is that of banding birds. Special studies of pertinent scientific questions are made at all of the regular monthly meetings of the club.

" The club aims to widen the interests of commercial students and to offer opportunities for social contact. During the last two years the Comerciantes has accomplished many things toward this goal. Miss Bowman, the club advisor, has materially aided in successfully developing the club program each year. Each term the club visits, en masse, several manufacturing establishments. Here they receive first-hand information as to how articles of daily use are produced. Prom- inent business and professional men speak to the club on topics of interest to com- mercial students. Varied and interesting programs are presented by the members at the regular monthly meetings. The program for the year is climaxed by a picnic at some nearby park.

Lentz President Guy Hoffmaster ■ Vice-President Alva Harsh • Secretary-Treasurer Professor Rose Faculty Advisor One of the outstanding clubs on the campus, Der Deutsche Verein, was organized in the year 1932 for the purpose of promoting the students ' appreciation of German culture, t ' nder the capable leadership of Professor Lewis D. Rose it has continued to grow and has added much to the social and cultural life of the College. Membership is open to those who have successfully completed one year of German and to Freshmen who have completed with distinction the first semester of German. Efforts are made by the cluh to obtain, through correspondence, information concerning the recent trends in Germany. During the present year the Verein is, in it-, monthly programs, attempting to acquaint the members with some of the outstanding personalities of Germany. We hope, too, to present a Schillerabend, including portions of " Wilhelm Tell, " one of Schiller ' s greatest dramas. Last year the Verein, in connection with the German department, sponsored a Goethe Liederabend to commemorate the close of the Goethe centenary. The club does not lack in social activities; the Ausflug, usually held just before the close of the second semester, provides a time of recreation and entertainment. It is the hope of the club that in all its activities it may continue in the advancement of the purpose for which it was originally organized.

Kiracofe Faculty Advisor To be a Candle is to be a friend, tor every member of this organization has wholehearted belief in the motto o f the club: " To have a friend, be one. " Th: Candles, as an organization, began during the school year 1926 and 1927, but was not given recognition until 1931 ' when the constitution was sanctioned and the organ- ization was recognized by the Faculty as an honorary society. From the beginning, Dr. Schlosser had been advisor of the Candle Club. Re- cently, however, because of increased responsibility, he has been unable to continue in this position. We are sorry that this change has been necessary, but are very glad that we could find another who, we believe, will fill his place quite ably. Dr. Kiracofe has kindly consented to be our faculty advisor; we see in him many of the qualities of a true Candle. The insignia of the organization, the Candle, has been chosen because of its power to give warmth and because of its universal use as a unit for measuring light. It is the goal of each Candle to so live that he may shed the warmth of his personality in friendliness and good cheer on the campus, and that this same glow may be a unit for measuring the spirit of Elizabethtown.

" Were it not for the sunshine of song, what would this old world be like? The song of the bird, the harmonies of the musica l instrument, the vocal triumph of the human throat — all have their place in this world. Music reveals the soul. In all races, through all times, and in every land, it has revealed the soul of man to man, man to God, and God to man. Music breeds in us a sense of the divine. It lifts the heart God-ward; it comforts the sorrowing, encourages the despondent, and plants ambition in the human heart. It is the sincere desire of the members of this quartette that they might fulfill a purpose in the ministry of music. They enjoy blending their voices in song and are called upon on many occasions during the year to sing in churches, institutes, and schools. They always accompany the A Capella Choir in tours to the churches in the eastern and southern districts of the state.

Stauffer Curry Baritone Alexander Glasmire Bass With the coming of Mr. Glasmire at the beginning of this school term, a very able bass was secured to fill the vacancy left by Mr. Martin in the College Male Quartette. As the other three men were accustomed to singing together, it was not long until the male quartette again started developing " close harmony. " In certain respects a more heterogeneous group is not to be found on the campus: last year each of its members held his church membership in a different de- nomination, this year each of the four college classes is represented in the group. During the school year 1932-33 ten full programs, both sacred and secular, were rendered in nearby churches and high schools. Several very delightful evenings were spent at banquets where the quartette featured. The most outstanding of these was the Educational Dinner at Hershey during the General Conference of the Church of the Brethren. Almost a score of other appointments, both on and off the campus, were filled. This year, because of the other activities of the members, the quartette is planning to render fewer full programs. However, opportunity will be given for them to appear on programs given by the A Capella Choir and the Student Volunteers in which groups each of the fellows is a member. Prof. E. G. Meyer is advisor of the group ; it is only through his cooperation and assistance that the male quartette continues its work. Page eighty-three .A. The Etonian, 1933-1934 1 ■! ■% I . H ' ■■ !

A CAPELLA CHOIR During the year 1933-34 Elizabethtown College reorganized its musical program. Instead of there being separate Men ' s and Women ' s Glee Clubs there is now a chorus of mixed voices. The group numbers thirty persons — sixteen women and fourteen men. As has been the custom, the singing is all " a capella, " conducted by Prof. E. G. Meyer, head of the Music department. The activities of the chorus consist mainly in rendering programs in churches and schools desiring its services. 1 he program presented by the group is centered around the Life of Christ, featur- ing His Nativity, His Ministry, Gethsemane, Calvary, and His Ascension. Classical selections from well-known composers are used to develop this great story. Each pres- entation consists of songs by the whole group, interspersed with quartette numbers and a reading. The members of the chorus have found a great pleasure in this activity and feel that they owe a debt of gratitude to Prof. Meyer and Mrs. Meyer, his assistant, for their untiring work with them.

COLLEGE BAND For years there have been efforts made to have some organization of instrumental music on the Hill. Very few results were realized, however, because the whole-hearted cooperation of the students was not with the attempt. This year some of the players themselves took hold of the project and the College Band has materialized. Mr. Charles Nissley, director of several musical organizations in Elizabethtown, was secured to direct this group. Perhaps the place the band is most appreciated is at the basketball games. It is almost unbelievable what a little music will add to both players and fans at a time like that. Quite a sensation was created when four members of the band located themselves on Shorty ' s wagon and, with Shorty himself as the driver, drove over town proclaiming the coming of the Lyceum program, the Petrie Novelty Quintet. The Band made its first formal appearance at the Home-coming program, January 12. A religious concert is planned for some time during the month of February. The students and the faculty all are aware of the spirit the presence of the College Band adds to the atmosphere of the campus. We certainly do appreciate the effort these people are putting forth and we want to do everything we can to encourage them to keep on.

Secretary-Treasurer Miss Shfaffer Faculty Advisor " The play ' s the thing " wrote the Bard of Avon and the Dramatic Club believes that the play ' s the thing wherein to develop the cultural and esthetic side of life. Last year the group was fortunate enough to see Richard Harrison in Marc Connelly ' s unforgetable play, " Green Pastures. " A second privilege came in October of this year when the group saw Walter Hampden play in Hugo ' s " Ruy Bias. " During the past two years has arisen a delightful tradition: it is having our fall initiation of new members at the home of our coach, Miss Sheaffer. , A i Ay $5 j Charming Pollock ' s vivid and memorable play " The Fool " was presented in February, ' 1933. The fine character presentations, the strength of lines and dramatic stage settings were a worth- while achievement of the Sock and Buskin. The first Homecoming of Elizabethtown College, January 12, 193+, was opened by two one-act plays enacted by members of the Dramatic Club. Throughout the year practically all the members of the club have been kept active in the numerous one-act plays presented before various local organizations. In April a new feature occurred when the Sock and Buskin entertained as guests its patrons. The major production and climax of the year came with the clever and outstanding production of the immortal Shakespeare ' s " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream. " A singular spirit of friendship, goodwill, and honest effort is the outstanding quality of the Sock and Buskin.

" — Tennyson. The Sock and Buskin selected for its major production of 1933 a play which combined a remarkable and satisfying philosophy with a dramatic intensity. " The Fool " in a unique manner presented the struggle of idealism in the world of materialism. Written by Channing Pollock, the play dealt with the question of " What would happen today if a man lived like Christ? " Daniel Gilchrist (Amnion Gibble), a young minister, decided to try the experiment. Manx called him " a fool " when he gave up wealth, position, and the love of Clare Jewett (Helen Heisey) to care for the poor in tenement districts. As the Fool grew to be known as " the wise man " the strength and beauty of the play reached its splendid climax. The cast played their roles with an earnest zeal which gave the play a deep tone of sincerity. The beauty of the stage settings, the true portrayal of human nature, and the vivid challenge of the story itself placed " The Fool " above the amateur level.

This year the play chosen by the class was " The Servant in the House, " by Charles Rami Kennedy. This is a classical composition studied as such in many of our modern col- leges. The outstanding strength of " The Servant in the House " is in its lines. There are innumerable overtones and connotations which make an exhaustive study of the play practically impossible. The theme, the Brotherhood of Man, is handled in a most gripping manner. The scene is laid in the home of an English vicar at a time when this vicar has been stricken with the realization that he has been living a lie before his people and before God. The vicar has two brothers with whom he has lost contact. The one is a famous bishop in India; the other has degenerated to such a level as to contaminate civilized people with his presence. Into this state of affairs comes a Christ-like individual who, by giving Christ absolute control of the situation for just one hour, restores peace and love not only among the three brothers, but between the vicar and his wife, and between the vicar ' s niece and her father.

The Institute purposes to provide the best Biblical and Missionary Instruction for Ministers and Christian workers in Eastern and Southern Pennsylvania and to provide new viewpoints of Christian Work. It is also the purpose of the College to have the church which supports her get in touch with the school and her ideals. In addition the students have an opportunity to get in touch with the leaders of the Church. Many of the students attend the sessions of the Institute between regular examinations and receive inspiration and instruction. The attendance at the 1 933 Institute was very good. Evening audiences averaged from seven to twelve hundred and the day sessions ranged from one to three hundred. Lending Features of the week ' s work were: Missionary messages each evening by Anetta Mow, mis- sionary on furlough from India. Sermon-Lectures each evening by Dr. D. W. Kurtz, President of Bethany Biblical Seminary, Chicago, Daily Classes of Instruction by — Dr. Kurtz on " Fundamental Doctrines of Faith. " Dr. Otho Winger on " The Church in Relation to This Age.

Dr. D. W. Kurtz was called back for the third consecutive year. His broad grasp of the truths of the Bible, his knowledge of the world situations, and his rich expe- rience as a college president, a pastor, a lecturer and a traveler have made him a much sought after teacher in our territory. Dr. V. F. Schwalm, President of McPherson College, McPherson, Kansas, was called to this conference because of his broad historical knowledge and his keen analysis from a Christian point of view of present world conditions. His thought- challenging discussions were very much appreciated by the students. Miss Ida Shumaker, missionary on furlough from India, a lady with broad expe- rience and Christian vision, brought messages of hope and information from other parts of the world. Mr. and Mrs. Desmond Bittinger, missionaries on furlough from Africa, grad- uates of Elizabethtown College, and at present supported by the Churches of this District, by their vivid accounts of Christian changes being brought about in the very heart of Africa, more than satisfied those who have helped to make their min- istry in Africa possible. The attendance and interest in this conference undoubtedly superceded that of any former year. The day sessions started on Monday morning with about one hundred; this was soon increased to six hundred. The evening sessions went as high as thirteen hundred, filling all available space in the Auditorium. Leading Features of the iveck ' s zuork ivere: Sermon-Lecture each evening by Dr. Kurtz.

' uci rcr COACH HERR One of the most popular instructors on the campus is our director of athletics, Ira Herr. His coaching ability and his subtle understanding ot human nature have made him a friend to all the students. Whether Elizabethtown is winning or losing, or whether the last play was a success or a failure, this apparently has no effect on Coach Herr. Regardless of the progress of the team, one thing the Coach insists upon is fair play; he never countenances anything suggestive of cheating or discourtesy. It is to him that credit for the high standards of athletics at Elizabethtown is largely due. To Coach Herr has been assigned a difficult task; that of producing teams of college calibre in spite of a small student body. In the years that he has been here, he has done his utmost to further athletics and make them a vital part of the College. His co- operation with the faculty members, the other departments of the school, and all the students has always been given in a fine spirit. While on the surface Elizabethtown has in the last few years had a rather unsuc- cessful athletic program, the more intrinsic values have not been lost. Victory is a very desirable feature of athletic contests, yet it is not their sole aim. The opportunities they provide for physical development, the strengthening of character, and making contacts with academic institutions such as our own are elements of far greater im- portance than winning the games. In the maintaining of high standards and the attaining of true aims lies the hope of our future athletic program.

MEN ' S BASKETBALL TEAM At the beginning of this season only one man of last year ' s team joined the squad. The task of constructing practically a new team thus became apparent. Much of the new material proved quite capable, but these men lacked the experience necessary for the technique of college basketball. This condition, coupled with the fact that our opponents were mainly veteran teams, accounts for the rather poor showing of our fellows. Only two games, those with Blue Ridge College, were easily won by Eliza- bethtown. However, no member of the team deserves the least amount of discredit. A willingness to work hard in spite of all reverses characterized the fellows throughout the entire season.

GIRLS ' BASKETBALL TEAM Our girls ' basketball team this year has been one of the most successful in the history of the school. The girls have exhibited fast playing as well as some very fine teamwork. Several capable players from last year ' s team returned ; in addition to this, there was added some excellent new material. Under the leadership of Coach Herr and Martha Groff, the captain, a spirit of cooperation was developed. The scores are not entirely indicative of the calibre of the team. Though losses were sustained at the hands of both East Stroudsburg and Moravian, they were not a result of poor playing. Both of these opponents have exceptionally strong teams. Our girls, with their keenest rivals, Juniata and Lebanon Valley, in each case divided the victories. Dec. 12 Dec. 14 Jan. 6 Jan. 10 Jan. 13 Jan. 19 Feb. 8 Feb. 9 Feb. n Feb. 2?, Mar.

BASEBALL The fourth year of intercollegiate baseball began with practice in the gymnasium early in March. There Coach Herr drilled his men in the fundamentals such as sliding, bunting, and the technique of picking up a swift bounce or a red-hot grounder. During the latter part of March the weather permitted well developed practice on the athletic field. After the season began, however, the frequent rains broke up many of the practices. Through it all Coach Herr never faltered. He remained at his post until the season closed. The Chocolate-towners have had a handicap for several years in not having a sufficient number of mound men to hold their opponents to a low hitting average. Those who enter the box have had very little experience in intercollegiate athletics. This year only a few letter men have returned; so again Coach Herr has limited material to work with. It is only because he is working for development in his athletes, and not only victory in games, that he is able to go courageously on with his work.

They were Lebanon Valley, Millersville, and Juniata. Two matches were held with each school. Because of the lack of experience on the part of the men, and because of the great amount of rainy weather, which prevented extensive outdoor practice, Coach " Dan " Myers found it difficult to develop a team to compare favorably with the teams from the other schools. However, this year we see much good material in the Freshman class. Coach Myers is developing this new resource and, since most of the new netmen are four-year students, he sees a brighter future in store for Etown tennis teams.

The desire to establish an institution of this kind evolved from the belief of the followers of this manly art that there is an increasing demand for real men in this atmosphere permeated by the bumper tobacco crops of Lancaster County. The purpose is to provide recreation for the hardened, rest for the weary, a haven of seclusion for the man much sought after, and to instill in the hearts of all a deeper appreciation for the products of agrarian environs. The group meets regularly, three time daily, in each instance striving to maintain that school-boy complexion. The motto of the organization is to be found in a paraphrase of Tennyson: " In the s firing more vivid colors adorn our children ' s kites; In the sprint a young man ' s fancy lightly turns In thoughts of pipes. " (The President and Secretary are shown in caricature above.)

" " Uh-h-h-h-h-h Huh-h-h-h-h-h-h!!! " " You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. " — Illustrious Potentate. " Is it good? Is it true? Is it necessary? " " Now you ' re talking intelligently. " 111 Guy Hoff master (in Criminology Class) : " Professor, did you read where gangsters are now taking their victims for a ' walk ' to cut down expenses? " 1 1 1 111 fares the land. To hastening ills a prey, Where seniors graduate, And jobs decay! 1 1 1 Dr. Musick (in Economics Class) : " Mr. Brubaker, what do we mean by the uni- verse i Jake: " Every year many beautiful girls are brought together. They choose the most beautiful and call her ' Miss Universe ' . " Dr. Schlosser was explaining Nervana: " Nervana is absolute negation of the will. Is that Heaven to you — when you don ' t have any desire to do anything? " Cobaugh (drowsily, from the rear of the room) : " No, that ' s spring fever. " 111 Sir Launcelot: " Is Merlin to be employed regularly around here? " King Arthur: " No, he ' s just going to help me by spells. " 111 The blacksmith was instructing a novice in the way to treat a horseshoe. " I ' ll bring the shoe from the fire and lay it on the anvil. When I nod my head you hit it with this hammer. " The apprentice did exactly as he was told, but he ' ll never hit a blacksmith again! 111 Q. What would be the proper thing to say if, in carving a duck, it should skid off the platter and into your neighbor ' s lap? A. Be very courteous. Say, " May I trouble you for that duck? " — (Printed at re- quest of Miss Sheaffer.) 111 Witmyer, in Economics Class: " Whatsoever a man seweth, that shall he also rip. " Record for the folks of the future the pleasant memo- ries of the present. Good portraits recall more than the faces of friends; they are the perma- nent records of personality and character as well. Photographs live forever.
