A. Volume Fourteen ©cdication DR. H. K. OBER for fortv-two vears served as a teacher and as an administrator in education ranging from the grades to higher education. For thirty-seven years he was asso- ciated with Elizabethtown College, in turn serv- ing as teacher, treasurer and business manager, president, member and chairman of the Board of Trustees. His zeal and enthusiasm, his active partici- pation in affairs of community, church and school, as well as his unselfish service to his fel- low man have left an indelible imprint in the history of the church and in the development of the college. In respectful memory we dedicate this issue of ETONIAN to Dr. Ober. DR. H. K. ODER Administration Faculty Page 6 Tllli: CoLLlilGli: Page 7 RALPH WIEST SCHLOSSER, Lift D.

During this period of time one should receive a balanced training in the art of living. It should result in building a vigorous body, a wholesome social outlook, and a sound spiritual insiglit. To make life count one must know the basic facts of the world in wiiicii he lives. Without such knowledge judgments will be formed that have no relation to practical living. To make a contribution to the solution of the problems of any age one must be acquainted witli many fields of human interest and iiave an integrated knowledge of tiiese fields. One must be a knower. The social order can be promoted, however, only as one puts knowledge into practice. Because of the varied tasks the world offers, it is e " ident that there is work for all to do. But to each there is a specific task for which one is best fitted. In the selection of one ' s work, native aptitudes should be carefully considered so that work may be done in the most efficient manner. To do work that is necessary, and to labor in a project for which one has special fitness, is to be happy. One must be a doer. But life is not counting for the most to those who are not guided by high moral values. Our pleasures, our tasks, our leisure, our studies — everything must be evaluated by the best standards to bring about a better world order. Life becomes ricli only in proportion as one has learned to appreciate the best that art, litera- ture, music, and science has to offer. One must be an appreciator. To know, to do, to appreciate represents the symmetrical life. College affords the supreme opportunity to youth to develop this type of life. It is hoped that every student of Elizabethtown College may go forth determined to make life count. " To be or not to be That ' s the question. " R. W. SCHLOSSER Page 9 BOARD OF TRUSTEES OFFICERS R.

Rorrower of money, teller of tales, student of history, ex- pounder at lentrth. cutter of classes — our worthy sage will be carried far by the sheer force of his personality. Class History T70rR years have passed since sixty-nine timid Freshmen tlirilied to the first glad weeks of - - college life. Four years ago they drowned in hard work tiie first traces of nostalgia. Since then, under the leadership of Madiera, Baugher, and King, the class has made for itself a place on the campns. Atliletic heroes, dramatic stars, fluent preachers, able musicians, and reliable workers in every organization — these are the contributions tiie Class of 1940 lias made to college life. The tug-of-war, the Freshman party (we captured the invading Sophs), hikes, programs, and banquets helped the first year to pass rapidly. Another year brought heavier scliednles and increased re- sponsibilities. At the end of that year many of our elementary students secured teachhig positions. Before we parted we celebrated our achievements at a house party at Mount Gretna. The next year, with diminisiied numbers, we renewed our work. A year of frantic activity in classes and extra-curriculars, and then — we were Seniors! Our last year brought us some new- classmates, experienced teachers who iiad decided to finish tjieir college course. This year, with its classes, parties, and dormitory fun. was made especially interesting by the production of the class play, ' " Silas Marner. " At last came May, apple-blossoms, and graduation. ' " Not of the sunlight. Not of the moonlight. Not of the starlight! 0, young Mariner, Down to the haven. Call your companions. Launch your vessel.

" ' The play was given on February 16, under the direction of Miss Rebekali Sheaffer. As " Silas Maruer, " Ernest King was transformed, by an unjust accusation, from a straightforward, friendly youth to a selfish miser. Finding " Eppie " " at his hearth, after he had lost his gold, restored his faith in mankind and in God. The role of the golden-haired " Eppie, " at three stages in her life, was played by Judy Cassel, Patsy Hill, and Lena Brightbill. Carl Raifensberger played the part of little " Aaron Whithrop, " " Eppie " s " playmate. Kenneth Leister played the pEU-t of " Aaron " as a young man. Gay scenes in the mansion of " Squire Cass " introduced the pleasure-loWng Casses and the well-bred Lammeters. Pictures of nineteenth-century village life added to the humor of the play. On March 15 the Seniors repeated the production for the benefit of the recrea- tion project which is being sponsored by the clubs of the town. Page 25 President Ross H.

Page 36 JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY TT WAS September, 1937, when the largest class that had ever entered Elizabeth- town College arrived on the campus — sixty-six strong. We were heartily wel- comed with a series of social events, but after the first exciting week in this new environment, we discovered llial lliere was also a more serious side to this business of college — that of settling down to lessons and respecting Freshman regulations. We managed to survive all these and come out victorious with a Freshman Party which was settled peacefully with the Soplujmores. We were ably steered througii the course of this first year by President John Speidel, Secretary Betty Forney, and Treasurer Earl Smith, with Prof. Meyer as Adviser. As Sophomores, our biggest event was the house-party at Mt. Gretna, which was chaperoned by Prof, and Mrs. E. G. Meyer. Ernest Lefever became our new President while the other officers remained the same. And then we came into our third year in these " storied halls " with thirty-six noble survivors, and we realized that we were fast nearing the end of our journey. For some this was to be the last year of their college experiences, for they would enter into tlie field of elementary teaching at tlie end of the year. Ross Coulson and Anna Carper were elected President and Secretary respectively, and Earl Smith was chosen to juggle our accounts, for his third term. This year was to bring the responsibilities of a Junior-Senior Banquet and of helping to edit and finance the yearbook. Throughout our three years here, we have given of our best to every organiza- tion and activity on the campus. In basketball we have been well represented by Co-Captains Ross Coulson and Stan Disney, Wilmer Fridinger and Emory Stauffer. Co-Captains Disney and " Dreamy " Day. and Emory StauCfer have been outstanding on tiie baseball team. William Willoughby deserves much credit for his fine work this year as editor of the Etownian. To name every person in our class who has been active would make the list too long, for everyone has done his share, wherever his place has been. Many of our Juniors hold outstanding posi- tions in some of the other organizations, to which they have contributed much. So with a feeling of satisfaction we pass over our three years at Elizabethtown College and look forward with a great deal of pleasure to our final, and what we hope will be our best year.

Class History H 1 F a liundred new faces appeared in the fall of 1939 on the campus of Elizabethtown College; tiuis be ' an the Class of 12 lo be " iulucated for Service. " elcoined with a week of social activity, we were suddenly forced into a current of work and study. We gradually became adjusted to school customs and were organized as a class. In all the school activities we, as Freshmen, were loyal supporters, willing workers, eager participators. Only twenty-nine faces could be counted as Sophomores this fall on College Hill. Again the class, with Dr. Musick as supervisor, elected officers. Ralph Parrett is our distinguished President. He holds that same office in the A Cappella Choir and is honored by his memlx-rsliip in the select group of Candles. Our other capable officers are Dale Frey, Sara Herr. and Rachel Kurtz. The talent of several worthy Sophomores deserves special mention. Rachel Kurtz appears again as a basketball player, an excellent actress, and a member of the Student Senate. Sara Herr is a conscientious commercial student, an officer on the " ■Y " Cabinet, and appears with four others of her class in girls " varsity basketball. Our class contributes eight to tiie clioir. Our President, Elizabeth Cingrich, Janet Pfaltzgratf, Benn Musser, and Richard Eckroth fretiuently appear as soloists. Mary Tracy, an " A " " student, is the scholastic genius of our number. Janet Boyd excels in science studies and in drama. The Elownian stalf includes tiie above girls, Stanley Earhart, and Elwood Fauth, the Circulation Manager. In athletics we list Eugene Shirk, pride of tiie basketball quintet, and in baseball an excellent mound performer: Paul Reed, varsity basketball player: Robert Hoffner, home-run hero and pitcher; Richard Eckroth, ace in tennis; and Robert Acker, a capable soccer player. Forget not Kenneth Sliaf[ " er and Dale Frey, exceptionally reliable athletic managers. The Class of ' 42 is original. . s our group social function, a class banquet was held at Diff ' s on . pril 17. Because of Sophomore willingness, cooperation, and enthusiasm, the program of indi- vidual talent will long be remembered as the highlight of our second year. Although we are not so great in number, you must admit, fellow students, we have thus far generously contributed our talent to each event. The quality of our service must, and does, compen- sate for the quantity of servers. Within the next two years our ranks will be still further depleted. Those who remain, we know, will uphold the standards already set, and in 1942 will emerge a small, but illustrious class, " Educated for Service. " Page U3 President Stewart B.

Class History T?IFTY-THREE bewildered-kiokiiifr Freshmen appeared on the Elizabethtown campus in tliis - ' - fall of 1939 to be greeted by a week full of social activities. Tea was served every afternoon and days were devoted to " learning the ropes. " The following week-ends were livened up for the rather home-sick newcomers by hikes, skating parlies, a scavenger hunt, a fall outing, picnics, and such, to temper the " readin ' and ritin ' and rithmetic " over which they labored during the week. As these new arrivals became accustomed to tiieir environment and lost some of their self- consciousness and inferiority complexes, it appeared that the social life on the campus would be conside rably enlivened by their presence, and whenever there was mischief afoot, the call arose, " Look for the Frosh! " But it was soon proved tiiat they did not major in fun and frivolity. They also took prominent parts in the campus athletics, with ilbur Rafl ' ensperger, " Gene " Risser. Ira Myer. (ieorge Althouse. and Carroll Posey on the soccer team, " RalTey " and " Pork " Leicht playing varsity basketball, and Burnell Rebert, Carroll Posey and George Althouse on the J. V. ' s. The girls, too, took their part in basketball, with " Cass " Curry. Mary Myer. and Erma Bell on the varsity, and Arlene Ziegler, Emma Hackman and " Dot " Baugher as J. . " s. " Jackie " Diffenderfer and Posey did tlieir share as Freshman managers. In the spring Robert Updegraff, Posey, George Althouse, and " Pork " Leicht kept up the class reputation by swinging a mean bat on the baseball team, and " Doc " Kingsbury and " Pork " Leicht were racket wielders in the tennis matches. For those " Rah, rali, rali, rah ' s " that contributed to the excitement of all successful or un- successful athletic encounters, the students were led by a cheerleading team of four Freshmen, " Dot ' Baugher. Janet Burns. " Cass " Curry, and Mary Myer. And the shouting was whole-hearted, as our blue-and-gray-garbed cheerleaders could compete with the best. Still the varied talents of these paragons, the Freshmen, had not been exhausted. Academic honors played a prominent part in their schedules. The school presented to this class one athletic scholarship, six ministerial, and twenty academic awards. Now we are extremely proud of the achievements of our Freshman Class of " 13, and predict, if we do say it ourselves, that it will do worth-while things in the world after donating its share of laughter and tears to the campus of Elizabethtown.

Through a Big Brother plan and Freshman Week activities the newcomers of 1939-40 were welcomed to the Elizabethtown campus. Hikes, parties, and other events were sponsored in co- operation with the Girls ' Y. The men are looking forward to the use of a gameroom which is being furnished in the basement of (lie Boys " Dorm. During the year the following periodicals were regularly received in the Y Room: Tlie CItristian Science Monitor. Life, The C-tirislian Century, Newsweek, Tlie Readers Digest, The American Magazine, and Popular Mechanics. Our horizons were further broadened by a variety of speakers who chal- lenged us with new ideas. We were fortunate to have with us men like Dr. Chalmer Faw, now in Nigeria; Anthony Lelnier of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau Cooperative: Rev. L. C. T. Miller, and Dr. Desmond Bit linger, who was recently elected lo the faculty of McPherson College in Kansas. But the wheel has come full circle with regard to the College Y ' s. About a decade ago, under considerable pressure, th two present organizations were formed. Since that time it has become increasingly apparent that the functions of these organizations could be realized more fully in an integrated association, which we wholeheartedly recommend. We are looking forward to a more elfective program under the new set-up whatever it might be. Page 58 Y. W. C. A.

W. C. A. has become a vital part of life on College Hill. Informal parties, bi- monthly meetings, and teas have drawn the girls into closer friendship through work and play. In an endeavor to promote religious life on campus, the " Y " lias cooperated with other organiza- tions in weekly prayer meetings and in chapel programs. Holiday seasons found the " Y " busy with special programs. The Thanksgiving Supper, the secret friends of Valentine Week, the " Coach-and-Four " Tearoom, and the Easter sunrise service and breakfast were sponsored by the Y. W. C. A.

Page 59 Sock and Buskin OFFICERS President Galen Jones Vice-President Beatrice Myers Secretary-Treasurer Ruth Cameron AN UNDERSTANDING of life, poise, self-confidence, and appreciation — these are the qualities the club tries to develop. This year the club presented several one-act plays. In November tlie club presented " The Naked Truth " and " The Lepers, " two of the St. Francis of Assisi plays, before the National Student Volunteer Convention. Last year the club decided to join witii several surrounding collej;es in presenting plays before high schools in the county. As a result the Sock and Buskin presented Booth Tarkington ' s " Trysting Page 60 Sock and Buskin Place " before four higli schools — Mt. Joy, Elizabetlitown, Landisville, and Rothsville. Before the East Strasburf; high school assembly the club presented three historical impersonations — Henry of England, Catherine of France, and Marie Antoinette. The club decided to join the national fraternity, the Alpha Psi Omega. In March several members attended the Annual All-State Dramatics Conference at Penn State. There they enjoyed seeing the play " Tlie World We Live In " and seeing how excellent stage eil ' ects can be produced with little money. For their annual production the club has selected, this year, " Cat-o ' -Nine Tails, " a mystery play by Laurence G. Worcester. After the play was presented, Sock and Buskiners entertained former members at an informal reception in the social room. Page 61 Sigma Zeta OFFICERS President Lester E. Manbeck Vice-President Johis Speidel Secretary-Treasurer Ralph Parrett Faculty Adviser Prof. G. S. Shortess ' T HE 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 student ' s appreciation for science, to give practical application of it in life, and to present to the members recent scientific develop- ments. 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. This activity has been temporarily discontinued, and such projects as the construction of a microprojector and the improvement of our developing room have been undertaken. It is the purpose of the club this year to build a telescope, which may be used by the science department in a study of the celestial bodies. Page 62 The Ministerium OFFICERS President Norman J. Baugher Mce-President John Weaver Secretary Stewart Kautfman ■ ' ' HE Ministerium is an organization of active and honorary members. The active members are those students wlio are interested in tlie work of the ministry or work closely allied to the ministry under church supervision. Members of the faculty who are ministersare eligible to honorary membersiiip in The Ministerium. 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 seek constantly opportunity for practical experience in the preparation for the ministry; and to foster a sound, academic, pre-theological training. During this past year several of the members of The Ministerium were elected to the ministry by their home congregations. The chief activity during the year was to occasionally furnish speakers for several of the local churches. Page 63 The Candles ' ' X O MAKE friends, be one. " This is tlie mutto 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 tlirough regular discussion of pertinent campus problems. Members are selected from the three upper classes on the basis of their scholar- ship, leadership, and service to the College. Each spring the club lK)lds its emwning event of the year, the Candle Homecoming. At this social gathering. Candles, past and present, mingle together perpetuating those friendships formed while at College. Page (i ' l The A Cappella Choir OFFICERS Preside }! Ralph Parrett Secretary Leah Godfrey Treasurer Ben Musser Director Prof. E. G. Meyer ' T ' HE college A Cappella Choir is an active organization composed of students who desire to de- velop a deeper appreciation of music with those around them. It has furnished to musically interested students an enjoyment that will long be remembered. This choir was organized in 1934 by Professor IVIeyer, and each year has been singing in about fourteen churches of eastern and southern Pennsylvania. This year ' s programs begin with the theme song. " Lpward We Look, God of All Our Days, " and consist of thirteen selections by Cruger. Sanderson. Bacli, and others. The members of the choir have selected " Tiie Holy City, " by Gaul, as their second-semester production this yesu-. One of the scriptures which suggests the fu-st part of this sacred cantata is, " Here we have no continuing city. " The second pEU-t was suggested by the words " I saw a new heaven and a new earth. " With the exception of two hymns, a verse from Milton, and three verses from " Te Deum, " the words are entirely scriptural. The choir realizes that the work of directing is no easy task and wishes to extend to Professor Meyer their sincere thanks for liis untiring efforts, and to Mrs. Meyer for her able assistance at the piano.

SOCCER TT ' RECTED on a six-strata Senior bedrock, Coach Herr " s revised soccer edition of " i9 never shook itself - - entirely loose from the dust of mediocrity, and from bell to bell lolled in the trough of the commonplace.. Two victories, three defeats and one tie briefly bridge the six games. The wins came tlirougli the courtesy of Blue Ridge and Cornwall High School, the tie at the expense of Mt. Joy A. A. and the defeats through the superiority of Maryland State Teachers, Franklin and Marshall, and Bloomsburg. Buttressed by Co-Captains Gerhart and Manbeck, King, Jones, Kulp, and Leister, all Seniors, Fridinger, Day, Disney and Stouffer, a ijuartet of Juniors, the automaton at an early date heedlessly wandered into Charybdian waters, was sucked in and spewed forth with three maculae on its escutcheon. Mt. Joy weathered myriad down-field drives and gained a 1-1 tie. Cornwall High School underwent a 2-1 subjection, and Maryland State plowed its way to a 2-0 triumph. Franklin and Marshall lowered the floodgates and snatched a 6-0 victory. Bloomsburg sponsored a 2-1 reversal, and Blue Ridge was decimated in a 3-1 Blitzkrieg.

For the second successive year the final calculations revealed 8 wins and 2 defeats. But whereas the setbacks of a season ago were inflicted by Thompson Business School, those of " 40 were dealt in a boisterous fasliion by East Stroudsburg. Tucked away in the 3 ) 10 safari were the continuance and cessation of a victory streak that extended through thirteen games, at the end of which East Stroudsburg made a premature entrance and derailed the entourage with a 44-17 upheaval. Striking its scoring summit with a 57 against the Alumnae, and plumbing the depths with a 16 in the second East Stroudsburg encounter, the Blue and Grey averaged a highly respectable 33 points for its ten games. Coach Herr unveiled his sextet somewhere in the dawn of December, it promptly setting about to administer a 47-17 subjection of Lebanon Business College. Hurdhng every obstacle it chanced upon, the sextet rolled into February on the crest of a two-year thirteen-game victory streak, compiled at the expense of Lpsala, Mt. Joy, Penn Hall, Lebanon A ' alley, Taylor Business School of Philadelphia (twice). Alumnae (twice), Leb- anon Business College, St. John ' s Parish of Reading (twice). N est Lampeter A.

MEN ' S VARSITY BASKETBALL WWT HEN Armageddon liurls its wrench into tlie machinery of Time and seals forever the basketball annals of Elizabethtown College, one page of those gilt-edged archives will, in all likelihood, carry this laconic summation: 1939-40 victories, 9 defeats Under those bare, gelid figures reclines a panorama of celestial exhilaration and Stygian dejection, one tinged by individual successes and tainted with indi- vidual short -comings. Enclosed therein is a gamut of a coach ' s trials and tribula- tions, his thrills and triumphs. Reposing therein are the long-lingering recollections of an over-time Juniata defeat, a last-minute field-goal that stifled Susquehanna, and that cogent over- throw of the sempiternal Nemesis Maryland State. Buoyant also as those thrills is a series of disappointments that went a long way toward preventing a counterpoise on the records. The re was the two-point subjugation inflicted by Pharmacy, a 15-point victory claimed by Bridgewater, and the recovery Moravian made of its bearings when defeat hovered leeringly above it. Page 72 MEi ' S VARSITY BASKETBALL, continued All these and many others, plus all ramifications, serve as components of a sea- son that allotted the Blue and Grey 7 wins. 9 losses, and third place in the Penn- sylvania Conference, to the topside of Juniata and astern of Moravian and Susquehanna. The Blue and Grey struck its first impasse in tlie gruise of Bucknell ' s Bisons on December 7 in a 55-32 setback. Then ft)llo ved the disheartening 32-30 reversal by Pharmacy. Bridgrewater afforded a 40-37 victory, but Albright absconded with a 60-49 verdict. Moravian then took its first step toward the league diadem with a 42-23 win. Pharmaey cradled a 45-13 defeat and Susquehanna ' s defense turned diaphanous in the aning seconds to permit a 36-35 Ghost (Acrtlirow. Juniata ' s flaccid palisades allowed an overtime 47-43 victory and Gallaudet withered before a 42-32 drive. Bridgewater greased the chutes for a 47-32 debacle but Gallaudet took a 29-25 quietus. Maryland ' s comatose defense allowed a 49-34 triumph, but Susquehanna shattered all Blue and Grey championship visions with an ill-timed 49-42 victory. Juniata ventilated the Ghost defense witii a 54-32 rout, Moravian ' s battered crenelations survived a sustained Phantom assault and squeezed through to a 59-50 victory, and American I . recited its requiescat on March 11 with a 13 38 reversal. Before the season had drawn its second wind tJie cognoscenti were unanimous in appraising this 39-40 machine as one of the best of Coach Herr ' s regime. From four lettermeii and a nondescript host of (|uestion marks lie moulded a eurythmic mechanism that never once betrayed its purpose. In the colorful duo of Shirk and Disney, Coach found offensive strength that merited recognition on the league ' s all-star teams. In the placid and effective Boss Coulson there was a Gibraltar of defensive strength also given league recog- nit on. In the low-slung Wilmer Fridinger and the voluble Emory Stouffer was discovered a sangfroid that e idenced itself time and again. Beiiind the starting quintet there operated a troupe of serviceable performers. Wilbur Baffensperger sprung full-panopfied from the high school ranks: Paul Beed, a tricky speedster from Tower City, Paul Leicht. valuable at guard or center, Curtis Gerhart, the only Senior to merit the spangles and Charles Walker, a sure shot from almost any point. Scoring for the season: Sliirk 191 (equalling Budisill ' s record of 37-38), Disney 136, Baffensperger 127, Coulson 62. Fridinger 43, Stouffer 35, Beed 19, Leicht 10, Gerhart 6. Walker 6.

GIRLS ' JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL ' I MIE palms that usually accompany the niching of the best athletic record hereabouts this year gravitate to the Phantomette Juniors. Projected into competition but four times, the sextet manipulated a similar number of victories, twice pressed to the limit, once by Drunuire High School in a 25-24 imbroglio and on a second occasion by Marietta High School in a 19-15 set-to. Elizabethville High School and the Elizabethtown town team withered in a 22-9 and 46-4 heat wave. Composed of starlets either shades removed from varsity rating or varsity players not yd in possession of a letter, the troupe evidenced ample protection to its " big sisters " for the duration of their college careers. Hinging on Catherine Curr Erma Bell, Ahna Herr and Mary Myer. the platcion. aside from exhibiting an anticipated series of rough edges, made manifest all the paramount qualities of a rising team. There was scant chance of shattering the Herr-Curry-Bell triumvirate when the margin narrowed and time was scarce. Yet on such limited occasions Dot Baugher and Beverly Henry were beckoned and justilied all faith entrusted to them. Supplementing Marj- Myer at the defensive points were two more Freshmen that merited more than passing notice, Emma Hackman and Arlene Ziegler. Scoring: Herr 40, Curry 38, Bell 23, Baugher 7, Henry 2. Page 7 MEN ' S JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL T7I SCOES and successes, with an oxubcrant touch of the former, commingled through the basketball - - season of 39-40 to emblazon upon the Junior arsity register 4 wins and 6 defeats. Hershey Junior College was the first to vent its spleen with a 43-23 reversal. Cornwall High School sub- mitted 32-23 but Elizabethtown High School rampaged to a 47-16 victory. Patton Trade succumbed 2 )-2.5 and Hershey Junior College romped to a 59-47 decision. Rothsville High School drove to a 34-19 triumph and Elizabethville High School was quelled 38-23. The Rotary PlayolTs delivered a brace of setbacks, a 38-33 defeat by Elizabethtown High School and a 40-32 subjugation by the Elizabethtown Stars.

Page 75 BASEBALL A BASEBALL structure, detruncated by the sheepskin scythe of ' 39. and a mediocre Freshman inihix merged to unveil lackhistre vistas at the tlireslihold ul ' the 1940 season. The infield, three huge craters decorating its surface, presented the most onerous prol)lem. Where Hal Saylor, he of the iron nerve and baseball cunning, once crouched behind tlie plate, that perennial rookie, Les Manbeck. and Wilbur RalTensperger. the Bellwether of Freshman athletes, have emerged from the heterogeneity to provide twofold protection at the pay station. Intact, despite adverse winds lliat howled around it. the pitching corps .stands as a welcomed sedative for a coach ' s sheep-counting nights. In Day. Shirk. Disney and HofTner there is a quartet ready to silence any contumacy of any sort and at any period. .Alternating at the reception corner, at one time the stamping grounds of a certain KInier (ileim. are Disney and Shirk, two performers whose value may be adjudged by their continual appearances in the lineup.

TENNIS " ¥ TTOLENTL struck by a succession of plagues that raiifred anywhere from graduation to a persistent case ' of hold-outitis, the tennis team, by whatever combination composed, opened the season an ahiiost entirely revised troupe from a year ago. Dislodged by the sheepskin purge were A. J. Risser and Jim Martin, both of tennis accountability and unrelenting in their tenacity. Add to this that Chick Baugher and Luke Ebersole found interests in other fields and the situation assumes a darker hue. Taking up part of the slack, however, was the advent of Paul Leicht. Of no .small repute in high school clay-court circles, L ' icht was a welcomed addition to the racket ranks. Projected on the tennis screen were . ustin Ruth and Dick Eckroth, the only 39 holdovers, the aforemen- tioned Leicht, Johnny Speidel and Johnny Weaver, Bill (libble and Bob Kingsbury. Only one new team, Millersville, forced its way into the current schedule. The remainder of the placard parallels that of a season past, with Moravian, Juniata and Susquehanna impanelled twice ami Lebanon Valley and Kutztown once. After weather conditions prevented the fulfillment of the first engagement against Lebanon Valley, Moravian put in its appearance and sent the Blue and Grey upon the declivious paths with a 6-3 defeat. Leicht and Eckroth accounted for two singles victories and then combined to make off with a doubles match. Page 77 Campus Donated Building On the evening of October 31. l ' )38, a small building of Gothic archi- tecture was presented to Elizabethtown College. Perhaps it was a gift from the gods, many speculated, or possibly some public-spirited philan- thropist saw the need of a new college library. Many and diverse were the stories which enshrouded the mysterious coming of this stately structure, but at any rate we did know that it was there, appropriately placed in the vicinity of other buildings of similar design. At a subsequent meeting of the powers that be the problem of naming the building was discussed at great length. After considering such suggestions as " Perry Hall, " " -Mooch Castle, " and others, it was finally decided to christen the pavilion " Reidy Memorial Hall " in honor of its prolmble donor. Regard- ing the probable use of the new hall came much bitter controversy. Some said it had been intended to be a new library, while others claimed that it should have been the much-needed music building. The latter used as their argument the fact that the very design and construction of the hall was conducive to the best acoustical effects. A number of other uses were suggested, but no conclusion ultimately reached. As did the ancient Trojan horse disappear, so did this esteemed structure vanish into oblivion, but the Icirend will live on in the annals of the school. Page 7S F II A T IJ K li!
