School o[ Education Clommencement S v2ea cet not Lllcl66 yj I93 The commencement address on the day of May 30, 1938, will be delivered by Dr. John W. Withers of New York University. Born in West Virginia on September 23, 1868, Dr. Withers earned his B.A degree at National Normal University of Lebanon, Ohio, in 1891, his M.A. degree at Yale in 1902, and his Ph.D. degree at the same institution in 1904. Upon graduation from Normal School, he taught in the West Virginia country schools for three years, and then held the following positions in rapid succession: the principalship of Kentucky Normal School and of Yeatman High School in St. Louis, Mo., the presidency of Harris Teachers ' College, the superintendency of the St. Louis schools, and the dcanship of N. Y. U. s School of Education, which position he now holds. He has written some outstanding books in the field of education, and holds mem- bership in countless fraternities, national honor organizations and educational asso- ciations. -1 m 32 f 5 Bmb l3p l r i • 1 1 | B lli -- " " " - .

To the present student body this volume will become priceless after college days are over. For it will then bring back memories of the struggle 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 associations 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 af- fords 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 place of business of our alumni and friends. Everyone perusing the pages 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 pro- gressive 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 poli- cies 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 recollections of the profitable years spent in association with those who became their intimate friends.

To those of us who know her she is the embodiment of all the graces that go to making a fine Christian character. We know that she will do her bit and do it well, what ' er that bit may be.

Vice-President Junior, President Senior; Student Volunteers, 4, Vice-President, 4; A Cappella Choir, 4; Etonian Staff, Assistant Business Manager. Imagine the class without Peggy. If it were not for her pep we should often be a dull gang. Peggy is a favorite among us all with her ready laugh and bubbling gaiety. Her qualities are such as to make her popular with all with whom she comes in contact. MILDRED MILLER Ephrata, Pa.

Middletown, Pa. B.S. in Science Sigma Zeta, 3. 4; Sock and Buskin, 3, 4. " Bill " always has a jovial smile, a sense of humor, a grim determination to do his best, which, when considered with his blond hair, tend to purge his environment with a bit of romanticism. Who knows! He may even become another Dr. Dafoe. REU SEAGRIST Halifax, Pa. A.B. in Liberal Arts Baseball, 1, 2, 3, Captain, 4; Basketball Junior Varsity, 1, 2, 3, 4; Y. M. C.

PAUL SHENK Sheridan, Pa. B.S. in Economics or Commercial Education Commercial Club, 3, 4; Y. M. C. A., 3; Intramural Basketball, 3, 4. Paul is quiet, unobtrusive and friendly to the casual observer but his ready wit and insight show up at a bull session and his neighbors in the dormitory (since the faculty moved out) can vouch for the fact that he is right there. Whether he becomes teacher or goes into business we wish him success and happiness. M. RICHARD SHAULL Felton, Pa.

Another of those elusive day students that can never be found when wanted. Our petite friend drives religiously from Lancaster to E-town everyday to apply herself studiously in the task of getting a broad education. Mary Ellen is a friend to all her classmates and we will surely miss her merry laugh and pleasant smile. Here ' s for her continued happiness throughout life. ROY RUDISILL Wrightsville, Pa.

Be- fore I can decide whether it is, I have promised to perform that service for which I do not feel qualified. I don ' t know our History. It doesn ' t seem like History, for past and present are strands intermixed and no order seems to be forthcoming. Was it yesterday that we arrived on the campus and excitedly entered into the social events of the first week? Was it three years ago that we were the first class to pull the Sophomores in the lake? That Freshman party which wasn ' t broken up. The class meetings and the field meet. I don ' t know who won but I remember a hot argument about something. Bull sessions, speeches for Expression. Term papers, frogs in the laboratory and in the lake. Ball team beats Juniata in eleventh inning. And the year- books written full by our fellow students, a house party at Mount Gretna. And, then we were Juniors. Not so many people to stand aside for. Not so many of us. Not so long until, we like our classmates, would be passing on the knowledge we had learned. Peace propaganda. Hot religious discussions. Student council meetings. Banquet with Seniors. Exams, Commencement; next year it will be us. Back again waiting to register. Lots of new faces. Roller skating. Practice teaching. Pictures for yearbook. Pep meetings. Basketball team really beats Juniata. Snow hike. Spring fever hits the Campus. More baseball. More work. Classmates get into medical school. Some have jobs. Some still looking. It will all soon be History, but it isn ' t yet. 32 ■ ' i ' S T J -»- 1 V .S- Tr ■ IOIIRS I w umoti STANFORD L. BAUGHER Hcrshcy. Pa. B.S. in Commercial Ed. Y. M.

This dark-haired lass from Columbia can usually be found where there is dancing, laughter and gayety. She is training for the Commercial teaching field and will, we feel sure, pro- duce many efficient stenographers, secretaries, and bookkeepers wherever she may be employed. RALPH N. DUNCAN Mechanicsburg, Pa. B.S. in Secondary Ed. Sigma Zeta, 2, 3; Y. M. C. A.. 2, 3. This quiet, thoughtful Junior is the last of a rapidly vanishing race; he is a plodder. Lacking that impulsiveness and impetu- osity which so often proves detrimental, it is Ralph ' s method of consistently striving toward a goal without giving up which we admire.

" fkt £t oman K HHMBrowVtSsSH B Quni t (2Ul± iihtotu It was September 1935 and all over the land the students were returning to school, many of them to institutions where they were entire strangers. For the fifty-seven freshmen at Etown that feeling of strangeness quickly wore off with the usual round of social activities designed to make them feel at home. After a few weeks of college life, in which they learned that they were also ex- pected to work, they began to realize that there were certain traditions and regulations which had to be respected. Although they chafed under these seemingly useless re- strictions, they later recognized their value in making them into better men and women. The first attempt at organization in the class resulted in the election of Harold Saylor as president. That the choice was a satisfactory one is proved by the fact that he has been serving in that position ever since. Their president has just as enviable a record in athletics, having been catcher on the baseball team for the past three years. Other Juniors active as athletes, both in basketball and baseball, include Sam Jones, Elmer Gleim, John Espenshade, and " Tam " Baugher. James Martin reached top place in music on the campus as president of the A Cappella Choir this year. As editor of the Etownian, Albert Bzura deserves credit for his thankless job of disseminating the news. However, a list of all the faithful public servants in the class would include every one, for all were active in one field or another, and often in several. 39 EST. 1 H fHa St .j T ;f,f (iV- Nor ha ve the Juniors lagged socially. As Freshmen they were entertained by the Sophomores at a Christmas party, and in the second semester sponsored a roller skat- ing party of their own. At the close of the sophomore year they held the traditional house party at Mt. Gretna, accompanied by Prof, and Mrs. Wenger. Most of the girls of the class " graduated " to various elementary schools after two years, leaving no more than six of the female gender among the Juniors. It is not the desire of the class to boast of its past accomplishments. They only regret that they have not been able to do more. At any rate they have whole-heartedly entered into the idea of becoming educated for service. The work of the class lies in the future. As individually they build on such solid foundations as they have laid in college, they will realize that the aim of each should add to the common good of all. The senior year is looked forward to with pleasure. Plans are already being made for the production of a class play. Whatever may be done next year, one thing is certain: The class of ' 39 will have received more good from college than they can ever hope to pay for. This realization should give them the firm resolve to live the ideals of the college, and to share among others the good things they have re- ceived here. College days will soon be gone, but they will always live on in memory and exert an influence on all the future life of each student. That influence will spur him on to attempt greater tasks and direct him toward a richer and fuller life. As Tennyson has said it : " I am a parr of all that I have met; Yet all experience is an arch wherethrough Gleams that untraveled world whose margin fades For ever and for ever when I move. How dull it is to pause, to make an end, To rust unburnished, not to shine in use! As though to breathe were life!

After the first days of organiza- tion and adjustment, the class began to attract the interest of older students. In spite of the hampering Freshman regulations, the young beaux and belles soon blossomed into social prominence. The crowning social event of the year was the Freshman party, when the men amply proved their ability to protect refreshments from the in- vading Sophomores. The second year at Elizabethtown found members of this ambitious class uphold- ing an unusual record for extra-curricular activity. " Chick " Baugher has ' won recog- nition for two years of hard work on the basketball and tennis teams. Not to be outdone in athletics is " Red " Meyer, the efficient baseball player. Nor have the men wore all the athletic honors: among the women basketball players is Lena Brightbill whose shots seldom fail. 49 ; own Illl I MS- ? mm. : •■• ' ■: ' s ffv git- In musical ability, the class rivals experienced upperclassmen. Chapel audiences have welcomed the appearances of the Sophomore quartets. The most outstanding soprano is Floy Myer, who had the leading role in " The Bartered Bride. " None the less famous is Bob Adams, the little man with the big voice. The Class is proud of its four ministers, Adams, Ebersole, Harting and Baughter. This abundance of spiritual advisers may account for the great interest in Student Volunteer and " Y " work. The Class has contributed two members to the Student Volunteer Cabinet, three to the " Y " Cabinets, and a host of active members to both organizations. Dramatic talent has not slighted the Sophomore Class. Of the eight Sock and Buskin members, five had large parts in " Penrod, " Helen Duder playing the leading role. The Etownian staff has welcomed among its reporters a large number of Sopho- mores. His peppy sports news has given prominence to Brandt ' s work. Leister and Kulp have been efficient members of the business staff. As the triumph of its leadership in extra-curriculars, the class had the privilege of seeing three of its members, Adams, Ebersole and Baugher elected to the Candles. With plans for a rollicking house party, at which to rest from two years of ener- getic work and to strengthen class ties, the class is drawing near the close of its second year, proud of its record as a group " strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

For it was the largest Freshman class that has ever entered Elizabethtown College, having sixty-six members in all. In the intramural sports, baseball, soccer and basketball, they were unsuccessful, but they made a big flash in varsity sports. Stan Disney, center, and Ross Coulson, guard, were our contributions to the varsity basketball squad. And we might add, two very good contributions. The Frosh were well represented on the varsity baseball squad by " Dreamy " Day and Stan Disney on the mound, Charles Walker behind the bat and Emory Stauffer in the field. On the tennis team Bob Keller carried the Freshman banner. The Class of ' 41 collaborated with the Class of ' 40 to set a new custom at the annual Freshman party. In previous years it had been the custom for the Sophs to. try to crash the gate at the Freshman party. This attempt often resulted in property damage to the gymnasium. This year the Dean of Men, Dr. Musick, parleyed with the presidents of the two classes arranging a peaceful settlement. When the Frosh served their refreshments, the Sophs entered, bringing their own refreshments. When the re- freshments disappeared the Sophs also disappeared, allowing the Frosh to carry on peaceably. We hope they have set a precedent for future classes. Having excelled in athletics and socials, the Frosh have not been behind academi- cally. We have our scholarship students in the persons of Betty Forney, that attractive miss from East Petersburg; Betty Groupe, a daily commuter from Middle- town; Anna Carper, an intellectual product of Palmyra; Charles Walker, that wit and philologist from Gap; and finally the hometown John Howard Speidel. Considering all possibilities we cannot help but say that the Class of ' 41 is bound to make a big splash at dear old E. C. and in the world after College. 60 mm at : TV--? ■H ■J.

The Y. M. C. A. had their annual Christmas party for the less fortunate boys of town. They received useful presents and also were treated to all the refreshments they could eat. The most outstanding event of the year was the. Parents ' Day Banquet. There were over one hundred faculty members and their wives, parents, friends and young men at the banquet. The banquet was featured by an address delivered by Dr. J. I. Baugher of Hershey on the subject " Why Go To College.

To make the new students happy and to help orientate them to campus life occupied our interest during the first ' week of school. To add to their enjoyment of life on the campus we felt the need of a new radio and song books for use in the dining room and so we made these new contributions. Teas were sponsored during Bible Institute and on several other occasions as well as two Tea Rooms which were held in the Social Room in Alpha Hall, one being held after the Larry Program and the other on Alumni Day. To add to our social life we sponsored a Thanksgiving Buffet Supper, hikes in the snow and parties by the fireside. St. Valentine ' s week was set aside as a special week when we remembered our secret sweethearts each day with a little surprise. And at Christmas time we remembered our little friends downtown who are less fortunate than others by having a Christmas party for them. Our program for enriching the spiritual life of the girls included hall devotions, weekly prayer meetings, chapel services and inviting special speakers to some of our bi-monthly meetings. The Mothers and Daughters Banquet is a fond tradition of the Y. W. C. A. as is the Easter Breakfast which was shared by the " Y. M.

RICHARD SHAULL Recording Secretary MILDRED MILLER Corresponding Secretary PAUL HOFFMAN Treasurer MARY ELLEN STEHMAN Prior to the close of the 1936-37 school year, students especially interested in the Social Sciences added another distinction to the college by becoming charter members of this newly organized national honorary social science fraternity. Although a small group it is one of the high ranking scholastic fraternities on the campus, and is doing notable work in discussing vital sociological, psychological, and economic prob- lems. The club meets once each month and hears talks of local well- known speakers. Its line of activity attempts the study of present day social problems in a scientific manner, following the ideals of its motto: Investigation. Discussion, Action. During the year studies have been made concerning race prejudice, pre-marital and family relationships, social security, and particular problems of urban and rural sociology. The International Relations Club, an auxiliary group to Zeta Sigma Pi, also wields its influence throughout a wide field. Although Zeta Sigma Pi is a selective group, the I. R.

During the year this club has sponsored many noteworthy programs, including the appearance of Kirby Page on the campus. May 16, 1938. 66 H 5 iprrrT ) = ■ 67 VOLUNTEERS OFFICERS President M. RICHARD SHAULL Vice-President MARY MOORE Recording Secretary MARGARET CURRY Corresponding Secretary HELEN MYERS Treasurer LUKE EBERSOLE Faculty Adviser MISS MARTIN 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 theme in their campus and life activity. Bi-weekly 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 around 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 activities were: Eastern Regional Con- ference at Juniata; special discussion groups on Christian leadership and Mohammedanism and the Eastern Worship Services.

BREIDENSTINE " To make friends be one. ' ' Thus reads the motto of the Candles. Originally founded as a social organization, the club has now developed to serve a dual purpose: to develop friendships through association in social activities, to crystallize student opinion through regular dis- cussion of pertinent campus problems. Members are elected from the three upper classes on the basis of their scholarship, leadership, and attitude toward the College. Each spring the club holds its crowning event of the year, the Candle Homecoming. At this social gathering Candles, past and present, mingle together perpetuating those friendships formed while at College. 68 SIGMA ZETA President ROY PFALTZGRAFF Vice-President AARON HERR Secretary-Treasurer SAMUEL GEYER Faculty Adviser DR. C. D. HOWELL The Theta chapter of the Sigma Zeta, organized in 1933 as the first nationally recognized honor society on the Hill, attempts to give those students who are interested in the exact sciences a broader foundation in their chosen fields. It strives to promote the students ' ap- preciation for science, to give practical application of it in life, and to present to the members recent scientific developments. In working toward these goals the club holds monthly meetings, develops projects for improvement of the science department of the college, and yearly sponsors trips to places of scientific interest. Since the birth of the club it has participated in a national bird banding project. However this year this was temporarily discontinued and other projects were taken up as the construction of a micro- projector and the improvement of our developing room. 69 mm mm s fife mm PS n mm ii j.- , ' - Sill ' s ' rfV.l THE COMMERCIANTES OFFICERS President LUKE SAUDER Vice-President LOIS BREHM Secretary LENA BRIGHTBILL Treasurer ARTHUR KULP Organized in 1932, the Commerciantes aim to make " better men and women for better business. " Hence it fosters both the business and social development of its personnel. To give greater breadth to those contacts, it sponsors trips to various Metropolitan centers, the last of these interesting journeys having been taken to the New York area. In its monthly meetings, the Club presents several business and professional leaders who discuss topics of interest to the group and afford an opportunity for a wholesale handling of the subject. Demon- strations of skill in Salesmanship, Typing and Shorthand are an integral part of the Club ' s proceedings. Friendly parties and public programs tend to develop the social angle of the business organization, which is dedicated to producing cleaner and finer business relationships. 70 71 DEBATING OFFICERS CARL G. HERR Manager of Debate PROF. G. R. SAYLOR Coach During the year 1937-38 Elizabethtown College has again been represented far and wide in the field of intercollegiate debating. This year the men debaters have born the weight of a heavy schedule, there being no women ' s debating teams. The season as a whole was quite successful, with the Elizabeth- town debaters conducting themselves nobly through a season of twenty- four debates and meeting teams from such colleges as Upsala, Gettys- burg, Saint Francis, Saint Vincent, Franklin and Marshall, Muhlenberg, Moravian, Rider, Ursinus, Villanova, Immaculata, Massachusetts State, and Susquehanna University, Lincoln University, Rutgers University, Drexel Institute of Technology, Fairmont State Teachers College (W. Vir. ), and others. During the year the teams have debated before several neighbor- ing High and Trade Schools, local civic clubs, and engaged in a short series of radio debates, debating Ursinus College and Drexel Institute of Technology over Radio Station WGAL in Lancaster, and Rutgers University over Station WNEW in New York City. Throughout the season two questions were debated: Resolved, That the National Labor Relations Board should be empowered to enforce arbitration of all industrial disputes; and, Resolved, That students of American Colleges and Universities should refuse to participate in any war on fetei an so il. The teams lost but mye decisions) during the season, and hold victories over such schools as fcetsanon Valley, Saint Vincent, Immac- ulata, Susquehanna, and others, including a victory in an inter-sectional debate with Massachusetts State College. The debaters were guided through another successful season by Prof. G. R. Saylor, the coach. The argumentation experts were Carl G. Herr, who also acted as debate manager during the season, James Beahm, Albert Bzura, M. Richard Shaull, and Robert Eshleman. Aside from their activities on the campus these men took a week ' s tour through eastern Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey, and returned with an enviable debate record to substantiate Elizabethtown College ' s prestige in intercollegiate forensic activities. in ' , JMtf I ' — .

The purpose of the organization shall be to maintain a high respect for the calling of the ministry, to lend encouragement to persons interested in the ministry as a life calling, to constantly seek opportunity for practical experience in the preparation for the ministry, and to foster sound academic pre-theological training. The club pro- vides speakers in a number of churches in this vicinity as well as ful- fills its function in monthly chapel programs. Monthly meetings are held in which discussions and lectures are features. The fellowship generated by this organization has been uplifting to both the ministers and prospective ministers and to the student body as a whole. 72 73 THE A CAPPELLA CHOIR JAMES MARTIN President FLOY MYER Secretary JAMES LINTON Treasurer PROF. E. G. MEYER Director and Adviser Since its founding in 1934, the A Cappella Choir has risen to a position of paramount importance in the musical life on the campus. It has furnished for the musically interested students a means of ex- pression such as no other organization has done. It has been a source of enjoyment to its members and its influence has been felt in many sections of Pennsylvania and Maryland. The choir consists of approximately forty students who are in- terested in singing. They are selected by test, an opportunity for new students to try out being given at the beginning. of each school year. Each year the choir prepares and renders a series of sacred programs in various churches at their invitation, and also presents in the spring of each year a sacred cantata, an oratorio, or an opera. The programs this year were based upon the theme Lord. Speak To Me That I May Speak and consisted of fifteen selections by Kopolyoff, Lutkin. Christiansen. Speaks, and others. These programs were given in fourteen churches in eastern Pennsylvania and Maryland and in one high school. The colorful comic opera " The Bartered Bride by Bedrich Smetana was selected this year as the special production. It was given on May 13, 1938 with Floy Myer and Robert Adams in the leading roles of Marie and Jenik. Prof. Meyer was in charge of the production and Mrs. Meyer ably accomplished the difficult task of accompanying the opera throughout. The members of the choir realize that the success of the choir is due largely to the untiring assistance of Prof. Meyer and therefore extend to him their heartfelt gratitude. -x ' - " X- ' " - " - • Since drama is a mirror of life, the understanding of life is among the major purposes of the Sock and Buskin Club. Other qualities which the organization strives to develop are poise, self-confidence and appreciation. The Sock and Buskin Club was introduced to the new students on Campus Night, September 18, Friday night of Freshman Week. It was then that several members gave the play within the play, " A Mid- summer Nights Dream. " " So This Is London, " a three-act comedy which gave us a picture of American and English ideas of each other was presented on April 9. The main purpose of the play was to earn money for the new draperies, the old ones having partly gone up in smoke when " Why The Chimes Rang, " was presented. And at last what the Club has been striving for all year (in addition to the draperies ) has been attained. The plan for the Junior Club is under way. Next year the recommendations so well outlined by the Committee, will be in full swing. And so to hibernation for the Summer. 74 SOCK AND BUSKIN October 28, 1937. This year the Sock and Buskin inaugurated the " Junior Sock and Buskin Club. " The purpose of this subsidiary organ- ization is to place Freshmen and Sophomores who are deemed not quite ready for membership into the Senior Club in a position where they can be drawn upon later for membership into the Senior Club. In a Chapel program on December 2, the Club pictured ' to the student body the Church Universal, and the Church Triumphant. Several weeks later the story of Ruth was dramatized. " Penrod, " a comedy in four acts based on Booth Tarkington ' s Penrod stories was selected for the annual Sock and Buskin production. Under Miss Sheaffer ' s direction the play, given on March 25, was a delightful entertainment. As this goes to press we are about to have initiations for the pledges of the Junior Sock and Buskin. The meeting will be held at the home of Miss Mildred Miller on April 19. 75 mmm STUDENT GOVERNMENT OFFICERS President JAMES BEAHM Vice-President JAMES LINTON Secretary ESTHER BRANT Treasurer SAM JONES Student Government on the Hill functions through three distinct organs: the Student Senate; the Men ' s Student Council, and the Women ' s Student Council, the latter two acting gen- erally in a disciplinary capacity, the first endowed with legislative powers. As a member of the National Student Goverpment Association, it attempts to formulate student opinion, to give added emphasis and virility to student activities, and to keep student morale at its most efficient peak. In cooperation with the Administration, the Senate offered during the ' 37- ' 38 terms an un- usually attractive round of social doings while the Councils operated quietly but efficiently to maintain order and goodwill at Elizabethtown College. In years to come student government hopes to become an ideally democratic body, a status toward which Americanism is definitely pointing.

Gone from last year ' s edition of the Galloping Ghostesses were such stalwart performers as ex-captain Ruth Bishop, side-center Bella Kapp, Dorothy Metzler and Mary Posey. Coach Ira Herr was faced with no easy task in replacing these regulars. Lena Brightbill, last year ' s Freshman sensation, Captain Mildred Miller, Peggy Curry, Ruth Rishel, Floy Myer, Frieda Shaull and the Velter girls made up the foundation on which the team was erected. Several promising Freshmen caught on with the sextet, but stand- ing head and shoulders above all competitors for Bishop ' s berth was Mary Jane Strite, a Middletown lass with plenty on the ball. " Calamity Jane caged double deckers from all angles, working like clockwork with Lena Brightbill. In the Blue Ridge game, Jane netted thirteen field goals and a foul for a total of twenty-seven points — playing in only half the game. It was in the Blue Ridge tilt that the Etown coeds were at top form. All of the forwards rang up high scores, and the defense was also elaborate. Only one Phantomess, Captain " Mil " Miller is lost via graduation, which means that next year ' s hopes are high, with that extra year of experience to tack on to ample playing prowess. 78 Men i E0.5lcetba.lt Elizabethtown College this year placed on the floor a basketball team which well represented the school, and of which the school can be justly proud. Coach Ira Herr ' s Galloping Ghosts clad at an early date in a brand news suit of Blue and Gray uniforms, hopped on their opponents for ten victories in eighteen starts, and many of the games lost were by the scarcest of margins. Three new faces appeared in the opening line-up, in Senior Jim Linton, and Freshmen Stanley Disney, and Ross Coulson. These men replaced such veterans as Hal Newman, the Schlosser cousins, Eddie Lander and Don Royer. S .. V « 7JrV£ .J: -{vV Mtf 79 Ifel W?4 tt- " " ' - ' " 1 . ' mm Ml " In the eighteen tilts played, the Phantoms rolled up a grand total of 683 points to edge out their opponents by the slim margin of three. The highest score registered was against Gallaudet, when the Hillians accounted for 62 points against a team which had given St. Joe ' s Mighty Mites a real struggle. The highest total from the opposite standpoint was registered by Bucknell ' s first-class basketball squad, who scored 55 points in an early season victory. All told, the Blue and White averaged 37.9 points per game, giving them an edge of .2 point over their rivals. Rob Roy Rudisill, the raven-haired captain of the Ghosts, was the individual scoring star of the year. " Rudy ' ' made use of his unusually uncanny eye for the basket to compile a respectable sum of 191 points, 55 of which were foul throws. The Wrightsvillian sang his swan song in Elizabethtown basketball by tallying twenty points against Gallaudet. Luke Sauder also did his local fade-out in that engagement. Stan Disney, playing his first year of College basketball as varsity center, flashed championship form on many occasions, exhibiting his ability to cage seemingly wild shots with regularity. This loquacious youngster canned 129 points, being topped only by Rudisill and Sopho- more " Chick ' ' Baugher. Baugher was the workhorse of the squad, tally- ing 156 points and playing a robust, hard game at all times. When Elizabethtown lowered the Juniata colors on January 15, of this season, handing the Chiefs a 28-27 setback, it was the first Etown cage team win over their ancient rivals in eight years. The other old rival, Susquehanna, was subdued once, 41 to 38, on January 11. The toughest game of the season was the Blue Ridge conflict on the Hill on March 1. After having submerged the Ridge five at New Windsor, 34 to 19, the Apparitions were hardly looking for the trouble they encountered. It took a foul by Jim Linton in the last five seconds of play to clinch a 46 to 45 win after the Ghosts led by 5 points at half-time. With only three members of the cast missing, next year ' s crop of Galloping Ghosts looks like a good bet on the Summer books, and stands a good chance to capture the crown of the new Pennsylvania Conference, which involves Susquehanna and Moravian. 80 Roy Rudisill of Wrightsville, was captain in his final year on the Etown College Varsity. " Rudy " scored 191 points to lead the scoring. 7 Ross Coulson, also got his varsity baptism early. Playing at a guard post, Ross was a persist- ent guard and a smooth floor- worker. Stanley Disney, an Elizabeth- town boy playing varsity ball in his Freshman year, seems to be just what the doctor ordered at that pivot spot. Thomas Garber. of Etown, cap- tained the Junior Varsity team that took the Rotary Club title. James Linton, of Elizabethtown, a Senior playing Varsity ball for the first time, proved a steady, de- pendable Phantom under fire. Luke Sauder, of Lancaster, also played his last year for Etown. Here was a big lad who could play a variety of positions equally well. Norman " Chick " Baugher, the Sophomore star from Hershey, can be counted on to go places in the next two years. s h TOW Qunlot [ a. t c5itu Ma.lkewa.LL The Elizabethtown Junior Varsity, composed chiefly of Sopho- mores and Freshmen, won the Rotary Club title of Elizabethtown by spanking Masonic Homes on March 7. In so doing, the collegians replaced Patton Trade School as Elizabethtown champions. They beat Etown High School in the elimination round, and then went on to take their 22-20 triumph from Jim Linton ' s flashy Home ' s five. The Jay-Vees paced by Hal Saylor, the only Junior among the regulars, had a good season, winning the majority of their contests, and the Rotary trophy capped the climax. Tom Garber, " Joe " Heckler, Red Meyer, and Galen Jones were the Sophomore representatives, while Wilmer Freidinger, Bob Keller, and " Pepper " Martin were likely-looking yearlings. 82 ■■ ' : H ft!

The Galloping Ghosts featured a star hurler in Roy Rudisill, who captured seven of the victories while losing one. Red Lander and George Raker copped the other two victories. Garth Gochnauer, an Etown High product who transferred to Albright at the end of the year, led the stickmen with a swat average well over .400. Gochnauer and Herb Lefever were the only Freshmen in the regular order. Captain Shelley Miller, Lander, Raker, Gochnauer and center- fielder Wilbur " Bud " Weaver were lost to the 1938 team, as were substitutes Roy Sheckard and Dave Shue.

The Phantoms went into this season as a member of the Penn- sylvania Conference. It was the first season of organized baseball for the Ghosts. Susquehanna and Moravian are the other members of the Conference. At present writing Elizabethtown and Moravian are tie for the lead with two victories and one defeat apiece. The Hillians opened the season by playing a 6-6 deadlock with the Maryland State Teachers in Towson, Md. Following that they tripped up Moravian, 8-3, for their first Conference conquest. The locals then ran up against Lefty Rohrer, Juniata ' s star twirler, who held them to two hits while fanning twenty men, and the win streak of ten dissolved. Pharmacy was next, and with Nathan Meyer getting five for five, the Ghosts slaughtered their Quaker City rivals, 21-2. Moravian took sweet revenge for the earlier defeat, by lowering Etown ' s Blue and Gray colors, 3 to 2. The latest victory at this writing is the 10 to 8 victory over Susquehanna.
