ALPHA HALL and RIDER MEMORIAL HALL 3ln Jftlemoriam Elder Samuel H. Hertzler, President of the Board of Trustees, passed to his reward on Saturday, March 7. 1936. To us he was better known as " Uncle Sam, ' ' the friend and lover of youth. Though a man of over four score years he possessed the zest of youth in his study of student problems and was ever sympathetic in his attitude toward the student body of the college. We shall remember him for his homely wit, his fatherly counsel, his genial and friendly disposition, and his radiance of soul. W- ■ i ! H 1 HhI 1 1 ELDER S.

To the present student body this volume will become priceless after college days are over. For it will then bring back memories of the struggles for victory on the gymnasium floor: of the many incidents in connection with dramatic and musical performances: of trips to conventions, churches, and other colleges: and of associa- tions with members of the various clubs and organizations on College Hill. Each student should desire to own a volume of this graphic representation of his college days. To alumni and friends of the college the Etonian affords a genuine opportunity to see the onward march of the college in its various organizations. It is through this book that many young people first become acquainted with the life of Elizabethtown College, and it is hoped that the Etonian will find a prominent place in the homes and places of business of our alumni and friends. Everyone perusing the p ages of this book will become familiar with the life of the college in a way that is impossible through the Etownian or the college catalogue. The progressive life of the institution is most strikingly manifested by a comparison of the Etonians over a period of years. In these volumes can be seen the beginnings of organizations, the progress they have made, and even the end of some forms of activities. Changes from year to year in administrative policies are also evident as the pages are turned. May this year ' s Etonian prove to be a true portrayal of the life and activities of both student body and faculty, and as the years go by may it bring back to its readers many pleasant recol- lections of the profitable years spent in association with those who became their most intimate friends.

" The lack o c finances has been the only hindrance to the execution of a number of worthwhile plans which the board had been considering. Among the achievements of the past two years is the spacious social room, occupying the space formerly used for classrooms. This necessitated a considerable rearranging of class rooms. But the social room, product of the idealism of faculty, alumni, students, patrons, and friends, is fulfilling its purpose in encouraging proper decorum and promoting a healthy social life among students. The macadam drive bordered by rhododendrons, another result of the trustees ' action, has added materially to the beauty of the campus and to the convenience of students and visitors. In order to insure the safety of the student group, the board has authorized the installation of a fire-alarm box on the campus, which makes direct calls to the fire house possible. Among the items that are under consideration are the increase of the volume of water supply to the several buildings on the campus and a building to accommodatethe growing library. The latter plan is impossible to carry out now because of lack of funds, and the board is waiting for some friend or friends of the college to make it pos- sible for them to go on in this work. 19 History of Elizabethtown College " Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. " Only by faith can we explain how, amid a world of academies, normal schools, and colleges, the Eastern Brethren dared to vision an additional competitive institution. But, today, 1936, the alumni of Elizabethtown College rank with the first in the state. Public sentiment for a church college in the east crystallized in a series of public meetings beginning in the Reading Church in 1898. As a result Elizabethtown was chosen as the location and a board of trustees was appointed. In 1899 the board secured the charter for the new school and in 1900 Alpha Hall was erected. That same year six students enrolled for work in the college and because the first building was not yet com- pleted, attended classes in the Heisey Auditorium in Elizabethtown. One by one the buildings of our present lovely campus were completed. In 1921 the college was accredited by the Department of Public Instruction for the preparation of teachers in both elementary and secondary fields, and it is worthy of note that Elizabethtown College was one of the first colleges in the state to be accredited for the preparation of high school teachers in the commercial field. These recognitions were important factors in the growth of the institution, for about 75 per cent of its graduates enter the teaching field. The remainder of the graduates are to be found in business, in law, in medicine, or in the ministry. There are several interesting features which show the development of the college. One of these is the high percentage of Elizabethtown students who have gone on to further work in graduate schools. Among the schools which admit Elizabethtown alumn 1 for graduate work are: University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, New York University, Columbia University, Temple University, and Pennsylvania State College. Another feature indicative of the growth of the school is the development of the summer school by securing teachers, in addition to our own, from neighboring institu- tions. For the 1936 Intersession and Summer Session the men who have been secured are: Doctor Leroy A. King, Ph.D., professor of Education at the University of Pennsyl- vania and a member of the Pennsylvania State Council of Education: Doctor S. H. Zeigler, Ph.D., professor of Education at Cedar Crest College and an author of note in the field of Social Science: Doctor Charles E. Resser, Ph.D., Sc.D., curator of Paleonto- logy in both the United States National Museum and the Smithsonian Institute, and a nationally recognized authority on his subject : and Professor Tillman H. Ebersole, A.M., Supervising Principal of the Elizabethtown Public Schools. This plan of the college of securing teachers from other institutions has received much attention in state educational circles. This year, 1936, saw Elizabethtown College admitted to the Association of Ameri- can Colleges and now, as we look back on the small beginning of our school and on the odds it has overcome to attain the security that it now has in the educational world, we can only say that Elizabethtown is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen — a faith. ... . . , 20 Administrative Advancement " The college whose faculty is making no advancement is dead. " With this as a criterion. Elizabethtown has been making rapid strides indeed. In the last two years almost all the members of the faculty who have not yet received their doctor ' s degrees took special work with that end in view. Professor Ezra Wenger, head of the Department of Sociology, and Dean A. C. Baugher, head of the Department of Chemistry, have both finished their residence work at New York University, and are now working on their theses for their doctors ' degrees. Professor Wenger has not yet definitely decided upon his subject, but it will pertain to the field of sociology. Dean Baugher is working on the subject " Check Lists on Trends of Higher Education in Arts Colleges. " This study grows out of an interest in American higher education, especially as its development affects the future of the private church- related college. Professor Guy Saylor, head of the Department of Romance Languages, is con- tinuing his work at the University of Pennsylvania for his doctor ' s degree. He started the work last year in the field of French Romantic Literature and Language. Miss Rebekah SheafFer, head of the English Department, has recently begun work toward a doctor ' s degree at the same university. Professor G. S. Shortess, head of the Depart- ment of Biology, is working for his doctor ' s degree at Johns Hopkins University. He is pursuing research laboratory work in the field of biology. Not all of the achievement, however, of the faculty is concerned with obtaining degrees. Dr. T. K. Musick, head of the Department of Commercial Education and Accountancy, has been working on a book, " An Approach to Accountancy. " It is now completed so far as the manuscript is concerned. He has already received several offers from publishers, but has accepted none as yet. Dr. E. S. Kiracofe, professor of Secondary Education, took part in a statewide study under the leadership of Harlan Updegraff in which an " Inventory of Incoming Youth " was made. The purpose of this study was " to so differentiate the experiences, back- ground, capacities, interests, and present status of all Pennsylvania ' s youth as to furnish basic material for the determination of educational policies and plans that will, on the one hand, best contribute to their needs, and on the other hand, best promote the welfare of society. " The study is to be made of 200,000 youth in Pennsylvania between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one. Dr. Kiracofe confined his study to ninety pupils in the Steelton School, Steelton, Pa. As yet nothing definite has been accomplished with the data gathered. Dr. Kiracofe has also accepted the recently-created position of Director of Student Activity. In this capacity he keeps an accurate list of the activities in which each student is engaged and regulates elections so that no one student is overburdened. This has been a very definite advancement. In the field of music, both Professor and Mrs. Meyer, Professor of Voice and in- structor in Piano, respectively, have greatly increased their number of pupils. They also have done much for the development and promotion of the A Capella Choir. These instances are the specific ones, but every teacher on College Hill has taken work to help him progress in his field. Last year, 1934-35, practically all of the faculty members enrolled in the seminar course in college administration given by Dr. LeRoy King of the University of Pennsylvania. Each member did research work and prepared a paper on a project that was pertinent to the line of work in which he is engaged here on the campus. The course was both profitable and educational. 21 J vlc yaculti A. C BAUGHER. M.S. Dean and Professor of Chemistry HAROLD HARTZLER.

" 32 aj- IT seems only yesterday that the Class of 1936 was a group of uninitiated freshmen. The many-sided interests of school life surp rised and fascinated them, and they were soon happy in making the varied adjustments to college life. The potential energy of the initiates was soon released in the class room, on the athletic field, and in the social life of the college. The influence of the new class was evident in every aspect of campus life. Keen rivalry climaxed in the annual tug-of-war. The bravery exhibited in this struggle was characteristic of the class. After the first semester their social adventures demanded the recognition of sophomores, and especially was this seen on the night of the freshmen party. Time moved on until spring lost itself in summer, and summer merged with autumn. September brought back to " The Hill " a group stronger and more gracious for having assimilated some of the ideals of the college. Thus with a year ' s experience, they pre- pared to deal out justice to the freshmen of 1933. Necessary disciplining was accom- plished silently and swiftly. But instead of encouraging the traditional rivalry between the lower classes, the sophomores tried to establish precedent for fostering a spirit of good will. Instead of breaking up the first freshman party, according to the college-old custom, the sophomores entertained the freshmen after the freshman party. A jolly feature of the year was a party at the home of Fanny Gibble. This party was supposed to climax a straw ride, but rain dampened the plans, and the destination was reached more quickly by automobile. The general feeling of comradeship and good fellowship reached its peak at a house party at Mount Gretna. The junior year saw a class considerably shrunken. Many of the members were wielding the hickory successfully in little red school houses. Those who remained bore high the standards of their college and class. It was during this year that the plans for the 1936 Etonian began to materialize. The beginning of our last year of college life was brightened with the successful staging of J. M. Barries " The Admirable Crichton. " Such is the history of the class as a whole. But concerning each of the individual members there is a history just as interesting. Nevin Zuck is well-known on the campus 33 for his dramatic ability, his position as leader of the Candles, and his success as an orator. Martha Groff, also outstanding in the dramatic field and president of the Sock and Buskin Club, has been captain of the Basketball team for two years, and also president of the Sigma Zeta Society. The class numbers in its group Margaret Sechrist who has been prominent in debating and whose ability as an actress is well-known. Her efficient work as editor of the 1936 Etonian too is noteworthy. As its own the class also claims a number of executives among whom are: Helen Ott, the energetic president of the student council: Ruth Groff, the capable president of the Y. W. C. A.: Cyrus Bucher, president of the Y. M. C. A. and an active leader in the religious life on College Hill: and Paul Herr, who, as president, has guided the class during the junior and senior years. The Class of 1 936 looks back to these years of the shaping of ideals, the formation of habit, and the molding of character with some of the feeling Matthew Arnold felt for Oxford when he said: " And yet, steeped in sentiment as she lies, spreading her gardens to the moonlight, and whispering from her towers the last enchantments of the Middle Age, who will deny that Oxford, by her ineffable charm, keeps ever calling us nearer to the true goal of all of us, to the ideal, to perfection — to beauty, in a word, which is only truth seen from another side?

Since then the number has dwindled according to natural college law, but appreciation of college and mutual ties have steadily grown. The class does not point with pride to what it has accomplished, for that is of no consequence in the broad horizon of the world. The members only hope that in the act of doing they have increased their efficiency as psychological instruments and thus contributed to the fulfillment of the task of education. Nevertheless, those members have taken an active and a leading part in the course of events on College Hill. The roll of the Class of ' 37 contains the winners of the first competitive scholarships that Elizabethtown has awarded. Among those winners is Helen Shertzer, than whom none ranks higher in purely scholastic achievement. Donald Royer, Alexander Glasmire, Edward Lander, J. Herbert Miller, and Elwood Lentz, all outstanding leaders in music, sports, religious work, and journalism, are also included in the class. Lander and Royer have been the backbone of Elizabethtown ' s basketball team for three years. Glasmire has worked unceasingly toward better music and now heads the A Cappella Choir which has done a great service in keeping Elizabethtown before the eyes of the public. He also has been active as associate editor of the Etonian. Lentz has edited the Etownian for two consecutive years during which time the newspaper has become one of the most influential organizations on the campus. J. Herbert Miller has proved his ability in both the Etonian and the various religious organizations. The basis of the acconv plishments of the class, however, lies not in this handful of leaders, but in the intelligent support and clear thinking of those whose names never reach the headlines. Yet life has not been all work for the juniors. Surely, to be a true social group they had to spend some time in playing together. When they were freshmen, the tradition that sophomores shall do their worst to break up the freshman party was discarded, and the first social event of the Class of ' 37 was a party ending in a reception by the sophomores, instead of a riot as in other years. The most auspicious event of the class, however, was the house party at Mt. Gretna in June, 1935. Then, for three days, with 43 the burdens of college life behind them, they drank deeply of liberal living and intimate associations with those who were left of the initial sixty-eight. The social program of the junior year opened with more refined tastes as the class visited the Hershey Com- munity Theater to see " Carmen. " But with another year before them they anticipate the most worthwhile events of all. One of the members of the class expresses it: Our years have been delightful, and we are told that college years are the most delightful, but we are not looking at future life as drab and uninteresting. Our tightest bonds are not those formed through inti- mate work and play but those which grow from the association of individuals that have a common trust in the good, the true, and the beautiful. We will look back to the Class of ' 37, not so much as a source of good times, but as a source of life friendships formed through a mutual quest for the higher life and a mutual struggle to make practical the ideals we have flung about us. For we say with Browning: ' Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the first was made: Our times are in his hands Who saith, " A whole I planned, Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!

I . 50 ON a warm June night in 1934 there came forth from about forty Pennsylvania, New York, and Maryland high schools, a group of fifty-seven young people, all of whom were to find their way to Elizabethtown College by the time of the fall session. There this group conducted itself quite highhandedly until freshman traditions defi- nitely made themselves felt. There is no doubt about it that traditions and the looks of disapproval from upperclassmen did a great deal to curb high spirits. Very wisely though, when this brand new Class of ' 38 had had a chance to feel the atmospheric pulse, they pulled up short and directed their enthusiasm in another direction. This time it was to gain fame for themselves in the academic, athletic, and social fields that they strove. And by no means were their efforts futile. Academically speaking, they discovered that they possessed an amazingly large class of top-notchers who were constantly aspiring for coveted rankings. In the realm of athletics, the records show that the " greenies " thickly populated any and all athletic divisions, whether inter-collegiate or intra-mural. Outstanding in this connection is Hal Newman who has done a great deal to " put Elizabethtown on the map " by his unprecedented skill on the tennis court. As to the social domain of " The Hill, " the Class of ' 38 can honestly claim to have made just as many excursions gymward, to have taken just as many moonlight strolls, to have mingled just as fully in cordial relationship with others, and to have endeavored just as earnestly as any of their fellow students to give birth to and to foster that intangible yet omnipresent essence of good fellowship that pervades Elizabethtown. In actual social events, the class held a party during their freshman year, and as sophomores entertained the freshman in the gym. This last was a Christmas party with a real Santa Claus and all the fixin ' s. In the extra-curricular activities of " The Hill, " this class has been by no means in the background. Charlotte Glasmire and James Linton have done their share toward giving us a better Elo wnian. Foster Frosh put us all in convulsions by his portrayal of the prince in the 1935 production of the Sock and Buskin, " The Swan. " Grace Frantz, another member of the Class of ' 38, is the songbird of the campus, and did 51 especially fine work in " The Mikado. ' ' Dick Shaull, the little boy who has suddenly grown up and made us notice him, has been active in the field of debating, both on the platform and as manager, and as junior manager of the basketball team. Mildred Miller, too, has been prominent in debating. When the members of the class returned for their second year, only five were missing. Many of the limitations of the preceding year were removed, and the class flung itself once more into activity. With the acquisition of new responsibility and the cementing of stronger, more harmonious friendships, the sophomores felt that they had become an integral part of the school and that they were gaining a little more the spirit that constantly flows from its " storied halls. " New worlds were beckoning imperiously, and the varied activities in which the members of the class gained recognition are witness to just how bravely they answered that call. And now, as the second year hurries to a close, the class looks forward with a deep sense of dismay to the loss of many of its most capable members. In sincerity, however, they send hopes for success with these their classmates who are entering the teaching world. There is a spot of pleasure too on the horizon. As the last social event of the year, they are looking forward to a house party, where it is hoped that the ties between those leaving at the end of this year, and those remaining will be strengthened, so that the Class of ' 38, although separated, may ever remain a unit. 52 FRESHMEN R.

In the field of intra-mural sports the Frosh have proved time and time again their superiority. The first baseball game between the Frosh and the Sophs resulted in a total loss for the sophomores. This initial success was typical of the victories that were appended by the Frosh in the field of soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Not only in intra-murals have the Frosh been successful. On the varsity basketball team they have been very much in evidence, especially in the person of " Flash " Rudisill. the basketball player par excellence. " Rudy ' ' was a freshman for the first semester only, having pursued one semester ' s work at Albright College. In the traditional tug-of-war the sophomores won — theoretically. The tug-of-war was chalked down as a victory for the sophomores, but it must also be remembered that it was the sophomores who were dragged through Lake Placida, before a large and satisfied audience. If a class is to be measured by its brains, then the Class of ' 39 certainly appears to be at the top. There are among its number five scholarship students, all of whom are truly " intellects. " These students are: Aaron Herr, that mental giant of Farmersville: Helen Kipp. the lissom blonde from Enola: Mildred Brubaker. that shy and retiring violet from Selinsgrove: Herman Leister from McAllisterville, with his quiet, twinkling humor: and the lad from the coal regions, Albert Bzura. Socially speaking, this Class of ' 39 has been putting upper-classmen in the shade. Dates-dates-more dates! They howled and howled for dates first semester, and now they ' ve been taking advantage of their privileges in a most unprecedented way. Offi- cially, the class has participated in one social. That was the Christmas party at which they were entertained by the sophomores. No matter from what point we view the Class of 39, our only verdict can be, They are bound to be successful.

One of these milestones for Elizabeth- town is the building and finishing of the new social room. The social room began in the fall of 1934, when Mary Brumbaugh, a senior girl and president of the Women ' s Student Council, in the presence of Miss Sheaffer, the dean of women, expressed the wish that the Student Council would do something more constructive than disciplining unruly freshmen. Together they spoke of attempting to get a new social room. Out of the germ cell grew the beautiful monument to our students as we have it today in the social room. Oh! it was not a shiny path of ease that the social room committee, composed of Miss Bowman, Miss Sheaffer, Professor J. Z. Herr, Mary Brumbaugh, Catherine Cassel, Stauffer Curry, and Jacob Kuhns, had to travel. There were many oppositions. First, there were dissentions between students and faculty, divisions in the faculty, and a general lack of money. Then, there was the matter of having the Administrative Com- mittee and the trustees of the college give their sanction before the plans could ever be born. And very important loomed the problem of sufficient class room space, since the making of the new social room would take two class rooms. With the more than willing help of all those concerned, these matters were settled, the committee began their work, and the social room materialized. By means of contributions from every organization of students on College Hill, and by means of gifts from outside folks who were interested in the work of the college, the project was started during the Thanksgiving recess. For a number of months the work proceeded steadily. The class rooms were completely renovated and became a veritable paradise for Elizabethtown College students. On March 3, 1935, after a large banquet in the dining room, the social room was officially dedicated. The room was crowded with students, professors, and friends, all whose spirits were high. In an impressive service, in the light from the fireplace and the candles which are always kept burning, the students and President R. W. Schlosser set forth the ideals of the social life on the campus as personified in this, our room. Every September at the opening of the school year, this room is dedicated anew and the ideals of the first dedication again set forth by our president, in an effort to keep them always before the students of the college. This room is a blessing to our college — not only to its students, but to the faculty and its alumni as well. The students are proud that the idea was first conceived in the mind of one of their members. May we always cherish the product of our perseverance and remember the ideals that were set forth in the first dedication of the beautiful room. 62 HELEN OTT Senate President J HERBERT MILLER Secretary MARTHA JANE REIST Treasurer MARTHA GROFF It omens Council President PAUL HERR Mens Council President ARTHUR FAIR Constitutional Committee Chairman STUDENT GOVERNMENT To crystallize student opinion, to vitalize student activity, and to nationalize student character are the aims of the government on Elizabethtown campus. At present the form of government is in a period of transition. The 1935 government operates through these bodies: a Student Senate, which joins the Mens ' and Womens ' Discipline Councils, and a con- stitutional committee which is making an effort to draw up a suitable constitution. One of the activities of this year was participation in the Pennsyl- vania Association of College Students Conclave at Penn State. The main object of this convention was to unite student government bodies throughout the state with the aim of making student move- ments more effective. In a few years our government hopes to become a unique model of desirable and efficient democracy under a new popular constitution which will be championed by the college administration, and executed by the ablest, warmest adherents. 63 ETOWNIAN Editorial Staff ELWOOD I.

With practicality as the keynote and Jesus Christ as the guide the Y. M. C. A. marches on, vivifying the spiritual spark among the men of Elizabethtown. Thinking with Robert Browning as he says, " The acknowledg- ment of God in Christ, accepted by the reason, solves for thee all questions in the earth and out of it, and has so far advanced thee to be wise, " the " Y. M. " has completed a year of Christian service to the campus. The members met in biweekly discussion groups, and were addressed at intervals concerning pertinent moral and social issues. The delightful Christmas party for the downtown children was the note of goodwill during the Christmas season. A monthly chapel service was the association ' s service to the entire student body. What promises to be a vital part of the " Y " work in the future was started in a small way this year as the great peace program fur- thered by Christian youth of America reached College Hill through the Y. M. C. A. 66 RUTH GROFF President HELEN SHERTZER Vice-President GARNETTE MARTIN Secretary JESSIE McKINSTRY Treasurer Y.W.C.A. The purpose of the Y. W. C. A. is expressed in these words: " We unite in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. We determine to have a part in making this life possible for all people. In this task we seek to understand Jesus and follow Him. " The Y. W. C. A. seeks to enrich each girl ' s college life through a twofold purpose: the fostering of spiritual kinship by means of evening devotionals and the development of social fellowship by means of bimonthly meetings. The Mother-Daughter Banquet is a fond tradition of the Y. W. C. A. Their specific work this year has been to furnish gifts for the children in the NefFsville Home, and to present, in cooperation with the Y. M. C. A., a series of prominent speakers on the theme, " Christi- anity in the Professions. " On Alumni Day the " Y " produced a very attractive tea room, which students and alumni patronized after the basketball game. — iniiiiiwitfiiim ■ WMHWWW 67 NEViN H.

HERBERT MILLER Recording Secretary EDWARD LANDER Corresponding Secretary ISAAC WAREHAM Treasurer THE STUDENT VOLUNTEERS The Student Volunteers is one of the distinctive religious organi ' zations on the campus. Based on the essential Christian principle that their religion is " missionary, " the Volunteers have made an effort to carry out this th eme in their campus and life activity. Biweekly programs on the campus have organized the work among the students. Deputation teams were again sent out to a majority of the churches of eastern and southern Pennsylvania. The programs of these teams were built about the principles of Christian living. Through their deputation work, the Volunteers as a group con- tribute yearly to the work budget of the Bittingers, missionaries to Africa who were former members of the organization. High points in this year ' s activity were the Quadrennial Con- vention of the United Student Volunteer Movement at Indianapolis, and the Eastern Regional Conference at Bridgewater. 68 NEVIN H. ZUCK President CYRUS C. BUCHER Seeretary- Treasurer DR. E. S. KIRACOFE Faculty Adviser THE CANDLES The Candles was organized in 1926 by a group of young men who w ished to preserve the spirit of goodfellowship after they left college. Since then it has evolved into a society made up of the leaders in the various fields of study and extra-curricular activity. In 1930 the faculty recognized the club as an honorary society. Each year the Candles carry on some project. In 1935 they con- tributed to the social room furnishings. This year they made an effort to tie up present candles with those who have graduated. The crowning event of the Candle year is the banquet held in the spring. At this social gathering Candles, past and present, with their friends, mingle together, making firmer the bond of fellowship which should exist among college men. 69 MARTHA CROFF President PAUL HERR Vice-President PAULINE HAMILTON Secretary ' Treasurer SIGMA ZETA In 1931 the Science Club was organized, and in 1933 it was accepted as the Theta chapter of the Sigma Zeta, the first nationally- recognized honor society on our campus. Membership in this organi- zation is limited to students who are seeking a major or a minor in either science or mathematics and who have maintained a high scholastic record. The purpose of the Sigma Zeta is to promote the student ' s appreciation for science, to give practical applications of it in life, and to present to the student recent scientific developments. In an effort to carry out this purpose, besides the regular monthly meetings, which discuss matters of scientific interest, several projects are being carried on. The one most widely participated in is the banding of birds. This is part of a national project by which much useful information is gained regarding the migration of birds. ARTHUR FAIR President MARGARET LEAS Vice ' Presideni DANA FLORY Secretary RUSSELL HACKMAN Treasurer THE COMMERCIANTES The Commerciantes was organized in 1932. Its aim is to make " Better men and women for better business. " In order to accom- plish this aim, it fosters both the business and social development of commercial students. To widen the business interests of its members it sponsers trips to Philadelphia and near by points to visit manu- facturing plants, commercial museums, and airports. Toward this end also the club in its monthly meetings presents business and pro- fessional leaders and gives opportunity to its members for demon- strations of their skill in salesmanship, typing, and shorthand. The other side of " Better men and women for better business, " the social side, is developed by friendly parties and public programs throughout the year. The regular monthly meetings, too, are a part of the social life since they combine education and entertainment. 71 LEAH MUSSER President RUTH LONGENECKER Secretary LUKE BUFFENMYER Treasurer FORENSIC ARTS CLUB The Forensic Arts Club was organized in 1934. It did not intro- duce an entirely new phase of club work, but simply combined the forensic activities of the campus. The activities now controlled by the club are: debating, oratory, extemporaneous speaking, and inter- pretive reading. The aim of the organization is to promote the interest of the average college student in the forensic arts. Every member of the student body is an associate member, but active membership is open only to those students who have participated in intercollegiate debating or in college oratory. The monthly meetings are patterned somewhat after the old Literary Society: a debate on matters of campus interest, a parlimentary drill, or an interpretive reading contest makes up the program. The interpetive reading contests are held as a part of the work of the Ex- pression class. Members of that class participate, and the Forensic Arts Club judges and awards the prize. 72 Affirmatice LEAH MUSSER. Captain GARNETTE MARTIN DOROTHY HOLLINCER Negative ETHEL WOODWARD Captain MILDRED MILLER EDNA BLOCHER WOMEN ' S DEBATING The 1934-35 question for debate was Resolved: That the nations should agree to prevent the international shipment of arms and munitions. This season the women met: Lebanon Valley, Penn State, and Ursinus. The first debate both the affirmative and negative teams won, the second debate the affirmative lost, and the third the affirmative lost and the negative won. For the season 1935-36 the women were able to secure only two debates, with Juniata and Lebanon Valley. During the 1934-35 season the men, with the same question as the women, met: Lebanon Valley, Penn State, Catawba, Millersville. Mt. St. Mary ' s, and Bridgewater. Of these debates, the affirmative at Penn State and the negative at Bridgewater were the only ones lost. For the 1935-36 season the question was Resolved: That Con- gress should be empowered to override by a two-thirds vote decisions of the Supreme Court declaring acts of Congress unconstitutional. On this question the men met: Lebanon Valley, Ursinus, Bridgewater. St. Francis, and Geneva.

I WOMEN ' S OCTETTE The present Women ' s Octette was formed from the varsity and sophomore quartettes during the year 1934-35. This year the group consists of: Edna Barnes and Mary Moore, first soprano: Grace Frantz and Jane Williams, second soprano: Margaret Leas and Charlotte Clasmire, first alto; Helen Shertzer and Adele Zeigler. second alto. The repertoire of the octette includes both sacred and secular numbers, as well as dramatized selections. To take the place of the octette of last year, since there was so much good material, the Music Department this year organized the Gleemen, composed of twelve singers. The members of the group in their respective voice positions are as follows: bass, Robert Madeira. Roy PfaltzgrafF, Alexander Glasmire: baritone, James Linton, James Martin, and Donald Royer; second tenor. Paul Cassel, Paul Herr. Charles Booz: first tenor, Edward Lander, Dana Flory Richard Flory. THE GLEEMEN 74 ALEXANDER CLASMIRE President GRACE FRANTZ Secretary .AMES BEAHM Treasurer THE A CAPELLA CHOIR The chorus, organized during the year 1933-34, has continued the custom of rendering a program of sacred numbers among the various churches of the Brethern Denomination and in other churches. Last year, following the theme, " God the Omnipotent, " Professor E. G. Meyer selected such classics as " The Hallelujah Chorus, " " And the Glory of the Lord, " " Almighty God, " " The Lord ' s Prayer, " and " 0 Gladsome Light " from the legend of Don Munio. The climax of the year ' s work was in the presentation of " The Mikado, " a light opera. During the year 19.35-36 the chorus prepared a splendid group of sacred numbers built around the theme, " The Eternal Realities. " Selections by Stainer, LaFarge, Haydn, Bach, Tchaikowski, Mac- farlane, Sebelius, and Matthews were found in the repertoire. This year the chorus has b een increased to fifty voices, thirty of which represented the organization in giving the sacred concert in the churches. The last semester work will be the presentation of " The Holy City, " by Gaul. 75 MARTHA GROFF President LEAH MUSSER Vice-President HELEN OTT Secretary- Treasurer SOCK AND BUSKIN CLUB The duty of the dramatist is to give a faithful presentation of life as he sees it. Through the Sock and Buskin the student is given the opportunity of developing the aesthetic side of his nature in such a manner as to aid him in properly interpreting and portraying the works of our outstanding dramatists. The latest major productions of the club have been : Shakespeare ' s immortal comedy, " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream, " Molnar ' s classical drama, " The Swan, " and Jane Austen ' s " Pride and Prejudice. " Among the minor produ ctions has been the court room scene from the " Merchant of Venice " which was successfully staged as part of opening- week activities and later presented before the Elizabethtown Chapter of the Eastern Star. This year in connection with the regular meetings the club is conducting a series of studies on the technique and applications of dramatic principles. Loyalty, good will, and a singular spirit of friendship are the outstanding qualities of the Sock and Buskin. 76 " A MID-SUMMER NIGHTS DREAM " This production given to us in the spring of 1934 proved that Shakespeare can be presented adequately and even excellently by college amateurs. The parts of Hermia, Helena, Demetrius and Lysander were taken by Harriet Curry. Martha GrofF, Alva Harsh and Paul Gerber respectively. One of the most achingly beautiful plays ever presented on this campus was " The Swan, " in the spring of 1935. It is the story of a royal mother, portrayed by Margaret Sechrist, who in an effort to interest a prince in her daughter, played by Martha Groff, brings about a pretended love affair between the daughter and her tutor. The plan succeeds, and, in spite of the fact that the daugh- ter ' s heart is her tutor ' s, her destiny forces her to marry the prince. The tutor is Nevin Zuck and the prince Foster Grosh. " THE SWAN " 77 J. HERBERT MILLER President ISAAC WAREHAM Vice-President JAMES BEAHM Secretary- Treasurer THE MINISTERIUM Although the Ministerium has been in existence but three years a decided evolution in the scope of its activities is evident. During the first year of existence the organization was primarily a fellowship group of student ministers. Outside speakers were invited to speak in the regular meetings and discussion groups were conducted on perti- nent subjects, but very little definite service was rendered off the campus. Last year the Ministerium secured a regular place on the preaching schedule of the Elizabethtown Church of the Brethren. Regular meetings were still held, but not as frequently as in the former year. This year has marked the third stage in the activities of the Ministerium. It has become an organization for service rather than a fellowship group. Speakers address the group throughout the year, but not at regular intervals. The emphasis towards service is becoming heightened in the evolving plan of part-time pastorships for ministerial students. This plan is in the embryonic state, but when it is realized fully, will mark another milestone in the progress of the Ministerium. As the Ministerium continues to increase its scope of activities, who can prophesy accurately its bright future. 78 id 79 WOMEN ' S BASKETBALL Elizabethtown ' s coed team boasts an undefeated record for this year. With last year ' s team practically intact, Coach Herr developed a fast, experienced team that encountered little real opposition all season. Captain Martha Groff, playing her last games for the Alma Mater, and Ruth Bishop formed the accurate shooting pair that built up Elizabethtown ' s high scores. Careful guarding and excellent teamwork kept every opponent on the short end of the scores. The Lebanon Valley sextette came closest to upsetting our girls on their own floor by a 20 to 18 score, but the return game at Elizabethtown was a runaway for our girls. With this record behind them our coeds are ready to enter the field of greater intercollegiate competition. GAMES £. C. December 6 — West Lampeter A.

Coach Ira Herr produced the most successful basketball team that Elizabethtown has seen in many seasons. Captain Ed Lander, Don Royer, and Harold Newman were the nucleus around which the team was built, while Roy Rudisill. Luke Sauder, and Woodrow Schlosser completed the varsity roster. Success lay not in the large number of victories but in the real com- petition our team offered to all opponents. Lop-sided scores, so prevalent in previous seasons, were few this year. The outstanding game of the season was the surprise victory over a powerful Susque- hanna University five on the home court. One point decided this thrilling game as the two teams put on one of the best exhibitions of college basketball that Elizabethtown has seen since intercollegiate basketball was begun. GAMES E. C.

Captain Shelly Miller and Coach Herr hope to produce a winning baseball team this season. Last year ' s auspicious start against Kutztown was shaded somwhat by later reverses, until the team closed the season with a clear-cut victory over Maryland State. This year ' s schedule includes games with Kutztown Teachers, Juniata, Maryland State. Susquehanna University, and Moravian College. If the baseball team continues to improve as the remainder of our intercollegiate sports have in recent years, we can expect real competition, if not victory, against this formidable schedule.

Much of our success must be credited to Captain Harold Newman who easily won all of his scheduled matches and carried Elizabethtown ' s colors to the third round of the National Intercollegiate Tennis Tourna- ments at Northwestern University. Newman was even more succ essful in the Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate Tournament at White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, where he advanced to the semi-finals over players from Penn State, University of Pittsburgh, and the University of Virginia. With the addition of Dave Schlosser to the tennis squad, the Blue and Gray hope to go still further this year. Matches are being scheduled with many of the leading eastern colleges including Villanova, Lebanon Valley and Susquehanna. MATCHES-I935 E. C.
