O 3 « is Henry Fielding expresses it, " There are moments in life worth pur- chasing with worlds. " The 1944-45 ETONIAN has endeavored to capture in word and picture some of those moments which though now seemingly not so precious will in the future be worth worlds to us to regain and to relive. 1 944 • 1 945 ZUG MEMORIAL LIBRARY ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE ELIZABETHTOWN, PENNA. A libit lied Ifu ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE Jl)t.U. Clyde Horst served as a professor and college pastor for only three full years. During that short time, we learned to know him as an inspirational leader dedicated to religious and educational activity in the college, church, and community. His devotional leadership during both chapel and church services brought many a special closeness with God. In memory of one who fought a good fight, fin- ished a beautiful course, kept an inspiring faith, and has gone to receive a crown of righteousness, we dedicate this issue of the ETONIAN.

Seven FROM THE PRESIDENT ' S DESK • • • Itallenae. a ti (yppot iunltu If it is true that " new occasions teach new duties, " then certainly we have great lessons to learn and gigantic problems to solve. It seems almost as if we had come to the end of a period in the history of mankind and that we are being rudely ushered into another. The transition is taking place on an unprecedented scale. Never in history have there been so many people held in political slavery, or so many millions under arms on the battle- fields of the world. The suffering of orphans, widows, and the homeless defies description. Civilizations, cultures, and religions have locked horns. A death struggle is on. Only rashness would lead one to predict the details and attendant circumstances of the end. It may be true that the Kingdom of God is never so near to us as it is in time of a crisis. Many of our old hopes and plans for a better world have been swept away. But when one foundation is obviously inadequate we seek another. In such a situation we now find ourselves. Circumstances compel us to seek a more enduring basis for the social order. The young people now in college and in high school as well as those who will come back after the conflict ends, will have an opportunity to participate in laying a foundation for a better world in which to live. Youth is becoming increas- ingly sensitive to the ideals of Christianity which enables them to work for a world brotherhood based upon the teachings of Christ. You who have so much of life ahead of you, the future is yours. There are challenging opportunities ahead for those who are brave and clean and ready. Pursue your highest ideals! " Be loyal to the royal within thyself. " ju AjLJIc Eight Jl Iaculty FACULTY • • HENRY C.

BOYD Sock and Buskin 3, 4; Sigma Zeta I, Sec. 2; Sigma Kappa Xi 2, Sec. 3, Pres. 4; Etownian 3, 4; Class Sec. 2, 3, 4; Etonian Editor 4. Cissy is one of the Seniors of whom everyone can be proud. Her intelligence, accuracy, dependability, in- dustry and wit are only a few of her desirable traits. To prove how much we respect her, we have selected her as editor of the ETONIAN. If you have any ques- tions about science, math, or anything, just ask Cissy; moreover, she is never too busy to help you. She is planning to be a technician and, with her ability, she will not need all of the good luck we are wishing her. BETTY M. BRUBAKER A Cappella Choir I; Senior Play 3. A top-ranking student scholastically, Betty has quickly risen to the level of Senior although she did not start out with us. With a love for Latin, w hich none of us can understand, and a jollity that makes her accept- able everywhere, she is well prepared to meet any of the crises which may await her after her departure from Elizabethtown College. N HELEN GRACE BUCHER Y.W.C.A. 3, Pres. 4; Sock and Buskin 3, Sec. 4; Student Senate 4; Student Council 4; A Cap- pella Choir 3, 4; Cheerleader 3, Capt. 4; Senior Play 4. Helen Grace has been with us only two years, com- ing to E-town from Hershey Junior College. Who can forget her excellent performance as Toinette in " The Imaginary Invalid " ? Although quiet and reserved, she has won a place in our hearts as she undoubtedly will with her future six-year-olds. Our best wishes go with you, H. G. ! Twenty-one MABEL A. CRONE Y.W.C.A. 1. 2, 4; Student Volunteers 1, 2, 4. Small in stature but mighty in ability and friendliness aptly describes this most industrious member of our class. " Never an idle moment " must be her motto, for one rarely finds her unoccupied. With such conscien- tiousness and aptitude for making friends, we know you can ' t help but succeed, Mabel. We send our best wishes with you. MARGARET ANN DODSON This was Margaret ' s only year with us — and then she left early to join her husband at the University of Wisconsin where she will probably continue her work A delightful singing voice is only one of her generous supply of talents. We enjoyed your brief stay with us, Margaret. May you always make yourself as wel- come as you did with us! N I JUNE R. GILBERT Pres. Student Association 4; Class Treas. 1. 2, 3; Class V.-Pres. 4; A Cappella Choir 1, 2. 3, Treas. 4; Etownian Staff 3, 4; Student Volun- teers 1, 2, 3; Etonian Staff Associate Editor, 4. As one of our most active and dependable members, in addition to being a superb pianist and revealing a flair for writing, June has truly been an asset to the class of ' 44. Her loyalty both to the class and the school as a whole is a spirit unfortunately not pos- sessed by many others. June is already ahead of most of us, for she has been teaching for several months in the Commercial Department of the Hummelstown High School. Such initiative and ability can lead nowhere but to success. Tacitly -two GALEN E. GRAHAM Sock and Buskin 1, 2, Treas. 3, Pres. 4; Etown- ian Staff 1, 2, 3, Editor 4; Sigma Kappa Xi 2, 3, 4; Sigma Zeta 1, 2; Student Council 3, 4; Student Senate, Pres. 4. " How does he do it? " is the constant query about G. P. Do what? Why, cut so many classes, be in so many activities and still always turn up on the Dean ' s List! ! Although proficient in many fields, his heart belongs to chemistry — and to the WAVES. With your ability for leadership, for making friends, and for carrying through whatever you undertake to do, Galen, we ' ve no doubt you will come out on top. Bonne chance! EDWIN L. KEENER Edwin was one of the few science majors around the campus the first semester when he completed his col- lege work. We feel sure that any medical school which he enters will find him a sincere, conscientious, hard- working Christian gentleman. With his working abili- ties and interest in people, medicine should have a fine servant within a few years. N J. HENRY LONG Candles 3, Pres. 4; Student Volunteers 3, 4; Sigma Kappa Xi 3, V.-Pres. 4; Ministerium 3, Pres. 4; Y.MC.A. 3, 4; Debating, Manager 3; Senior Play 4; Etownian 3; Etonian, Snapshot Editor 4; Men ' s Student Council 4; Sock and Buskin 4. College storekeeping, amateur photography, preach- ing, and acting are only a few of the activities en- gaged in by our friend of the enormously long name, Jacob Henry Horst Long. Although constantly assailed by " How ' s my credit, Henry? " " Did my books come in yet? " or " The service in this store is lousy, " he man- ages to keep a pretty even temper and take in our nickels and dimes before we realize it. When he starts applying his (or J. Z. ' s) business tactics to the min- istry who knows what the outcome will be? With Millie there beside him, it ought to be good. How about it, Henry? Twenty-three MARGARET E. MANN Student Volunteers 2, 3; Correspondence Sec. 4; A Cappellct Choir 1, 2, 3, 4; Sock and Buskin 2, 3, V.-Pres. 4; Y.W.C.A. 2, 3, 4; Student Coun- cil, Pres. 4. Another quiet and very dignified member of our class, Betty has proved herself quite an actress, ably dis- playing her talents in the Sock and Buskin and Senior Class plays. Your fine qualities of dependability, un- selfishness, industry, and sympathy for others will surely lead to success both in the teaching field and as a minister ' s wife, Betty. Our hearts are with you. RUTH McDANNEL (junior-Senior) Etownian Staff 1; A Cappella Choir 2; Y.W.C.A. 1, 2; Student Volunteers 1, 2, Sec. 3. Ruth is one of the finest girls on the campus. Fair, broadminded, honest, friendly, cooperative, intelligent, and Christian — these are only a few of the adjectives to describe her. Ruth is a girl who is not ashamed to stand alone for what is right and who will go far out of her way to help someone who is in need. She has prepared to teach on the elementary level but with a personality like hers there is little wonder that she is one of the first girls in her class to be engaged. As either a school teacher or a wife, we wish her all the success in the world. N j. JACK MELHORN (Junior-Senior) Y.M.C.A. 1, 2, Pres. 3; A Cappella Choir 1, 2, Pres. 3; Student Senate, Sec. 3; Student Coun- cil 3; Ministerium 1, Sec 2, 3; Sock and Buskin 3; Student Volunteers 1, 2, 3; Etownian Staff 3; Etonian Staff Senior Editor 3; Senior Play 3; Baseball 1, 2, 3; Basketball 1, 2, 3; Soccer 2; Class V.-Pres. 2, 3; Class Pres. 1; Recreational Comm. 3; Peace Team 1, 2, Leader 3. We have in Jack another of York ' s fine contributions to Elizabethtown College. From his participation in student, religious organizations, sports, and the arts, we can safely predict for Jack a bright and well- rounded future in the Christian ministry. Keep up the fine work, Jack! Twenty-four MARY E. PEOPLES Coming to us after two years at Millersville State Teachers, Betty is the first one of our class to enter the ranks of the married. Demure, amiable, fastid- ious, intelligent, she has quietly won her place among us and has proved herself a true gem in the class of ' 44. DOROTHY SELTZER Y.W.C.A. 1, 2, 3, 4; A Cappella Choir 1, 2, 3, 4; Student Volunteers 1, 2, 3, 4; Class Treas. 4. Dot is our most efficient secretary to the treasurer and also our class songstress. None of us who have heard her will forget how she brightened many a chapel program with her singing. In addition to her musical talent, her scholastic ability is far above average. The commercial field will heartily welcome her into its staff of teachers. N ROBERT WILLOUCHBY (Junior-Senior) Y.M.C.A. 1, 2, 3; International Relations Club 2, 3; Ministerium 2, 3; Basketball 3; A Cappella Choir 1, 2, 3; Student Volunteers 1, 2, 3; Peace Team 1, 2, 3. Bob was one of the few remaining huskies of the van- ishing species. He did a very romantic piece of work by caring for five or six flames throughout the school (college fireman from 7 to 11 P. M). Those who knew him well will never forget him as a reader of fine lit- erature (other than class assignments), master of one- handed basketball shots from the center of the floor, and general " tough boy ' ' of our class. Twenty-five Senlot (?La55 4jistot j • • • Since that bright summer day in 1940 much has gone into experiences of the class of ' 44. A group of fifty students started in the class and fifteen of those that entered completed their work without interruption. As the group grew smaller the campus responsibilities grew larger until everyone had to do more than his responsibilities. Highlights throughout the four years were as follows: the Freshman ban- quet held at Aunt Sally ' s in May; the Sophomore trip to Philadelphia to see the Penn-Navy football game in October; the Junior-Senior banquet held at Aunt Sally ' s in May; and the Senior presentation of the " Imaginary Invalid " and the publication of the " Etonian. " The class of ' 44 contributed very much to the school by aiding in the athletic programs, by contributing much musical talent, through the A Cap- pella Choir and solo work, by taking part in dramatics through the Sock and Buskin, by displaying its literary talent through the Etownian, and by its par- ticipation in all of the social and religious activities in the clubs on the campus. Our faithful officers were: Stuart Goodwin, Kenneth Hetrick, Carl Spence, Glenn Gingrich and Henry Long as presidents; June Gilbert and Virginia Boyd as secretaries; and William Pollock, Carl Spence, June Gilbert and Dorothy Seltzer as treasurer. Our class was broken up because of the fellows leaving for service and because of the accelerated program. Several Juniors entered the class be- cause of this same program and a few students returned to finish their work. We stand looking into the future, we stand ready for action, we should move forward hand-in-hand with all other graduating classes to build a better tomorrow so that our children will not have broken up classes, but that our children should have an environment which is most productive for education and service. What the future holds in store for us depends very much upon us now! What do we want in the future? Twenty-six JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS • • • President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer DONALD DeLANCEY JACK MELHORN MARY COX GLADYS NYCE Twenty-seven J u N MARY E. COX Orchestra 1; Student Senate 1, 2, 3; A Cappella Choir 2, 3; Class Secretary 3; Ministerium 3, Y.W.C.A. 1, 2, 3; Recreational Comm. 2. Mary has been one of the stand-bys of our class through its history thus far, and we are depending upon her willingness and ability to help us in the fu- ture. She has capably fulfilled her duties in various offices throughout her three years here. Moreover, she has shown herself to be a friend to all — many Fresh- men can testify to that, for Mary has believed in try- ing to make Freshmen feel at home in our college family. Of course, a certain young minister can also testify to her friendliness! ! DONALD E. DELANCEY Class Pres. 3; Athletic Association Pres. 3; Basketball 1, 2, 3; Baseball 1, 2; Soccer 1, 2; Y.M.C.A. 1, 2, 3; Student Council 2; Orchestra 1, 2, 3, Pres. 2. ' Duke " has done much to make Coach Herr happy in these days when male college students are at a premium. Baseball is his specialty, with basketball and the trumpet his pet sidelines. Oh yes, he fasci- nates the girls with his figures on ice. Although not a " jerk " in college, we hope he becomes an outstand- ing " jerker ' in the profession of dentistry. IRA W. CIBBEL Student Volunteers 1, 2, 3; Peace Team 1, 2, 3; Choir 1, 2, 3; Ministerium 2, 3; Y.M.C.A. 1, 2, 3; Candles 2, 3; Etownian 2, 3; Etonian Staff Business Manager, 3. Who ' ll forget Ira ' s abbreviated attire in his skull cap, or his romantic approach in " The Imaginary Invalid " ? Unforgettable! Ira has come to us from a Fredricks- burg farm with scientific aims in mind. Now he has turned from science to literature, music, history, and many other fields which are so necessary in prepar- ing for the ministry. He still has plenty of interest in farming and hopes to return as a rural pastor. A noble aim, Ira! Twenty-eight LOIS CISH Coming to us as a Sophomore from E. M. S„ Lois has been an asset to our college. Friendly and interested in everyone, she will be a successful elementary teacher, we are sure. We need more teachers like Lois, in these days especially. HILDA C. CONZALEZ Orchestra 1; Y.W.C.A. 1, 2, 3; Basketball 1, 2; Commerciantes 1, 2, V.-Pres. 3. Among other things, Hilda is Spanish, attractive, witty, unpredictable, and carefree. She sees to it that life in the dorm is anything but dull in Room Six. Because of her willingness to go out of her way to help others, because of her generosity, and because of her de- lightful personality, she has endeared herself to many of us here on the Hill. Hilda ' s principal goal is to be- come an interpreter and, with her linguistic ability, we know she will be successful. u N M. ETHEL MENCEL Student Volunteers 3; Y.W.C.A. 3; Student Council 3. We are grateful to Hershey Junior College for sending Ethel to us this year. She has proved herself capable both in music and in public speaking. Sincere and dependable, she is a friend to all. Add to that the fact that Christ is placed first in her life, and you can easily see why she has won her way into our hearts. Tulenty-nine KATHERINE MILLER Y.W.C.A. 1, Sec. 2; Sock and Buskin I, 2; Student Volunteers 1, 2. Two years ago Hazlet, New Jersey, had no meaning for us, but it did us a big favor by giving us Kay. Even though she did change her name last summer, she is still the same Kay — friendly, witty, sincere, help- ful in every way. A good Christian, a good scholar, a good friend, she has proved to be a fine asset to E. C. Kay, you and Bob have our best wishes. u N MARILYN L. MILLER A Cappella Choir 1; Commerciantes 1, 2, Pres. 3; Y.W.C.A. 1, 2, 3; Etonian Staff Junior Editor 3, Etownian 2, Associate Editor 3; Class Sec. 1. In Marilyn we have an exceptionally good student as well as a girl who has delighted us with her singing and with her sense of humor. If you can always tell when she is serious and when she is joking, you are to be congratulated. But the fact that she is not easily predictable makes her all the more delightful as a companion. MIRIAM B. NOLT Student Volunteers 3. We who have learned to know Miriam well this year regret that Messiah Bible College claimed her during her first two college years. " Minnie " is conscientious and efficient in her studies as well as in other areas of life. She radiates a Christ-like character which wins her many friends.- She enjoys writing and hopes sometime to develop that talent, but if she succeeds in finding time to write in the midst of school-teaching, she has our hearty congratulations! Thirty GLADYS PRICE NYCE A Cappella Choir 1, 2, 3; Student Volunteers 1, 2, V.-Pres. 3; Class Treas. 2, 3; Y.W.C.A. 1, 2, 3; Student Council 3; Etownian Staff 1. Gladys is one of the gifted members of our class She is intelligent, musical, and, above all, industrious. She is particularly interested in foreign languages and is preparing to teach in this field. Her friendliness, her intellectual ability, and her efficiency will be invalu- able assets to her in this work. In addition to these fine qualities already mentioned, she has the added distinction of being the only " nyce " girl on the campus. NANCY K. REIDER Y.W.C.A. 1, 2, 3, Etonian Staff Circulation Man- ager 3. If, on the bitterest day of winter, you see a little blonde dashing from the Science Building to Alpha Hall with- out wearing a wrap, it is Nancy. In fact, if you see a little blonde doing anything that is unusual, it is Nancy. Nevertheless, this individuality has caused us to like her even more than we otherwise would. Nancy is preparing to teach Latin and we are sure that she will be successful. u N I Thirty-one • • • Three years ago forty-five frightened and bewildered freshmen, eager to begin their college careers, assembled on the Elizabethtown College campus. Everything was rather disturbing at first, but after meeting the faculty mem- bers and our fellow students, and after attending classes for several days, we became our old arrogant selves — so much so, in fact, that the lordly sopho- mores, who had only recently acquired prestige, felt it was their duty and responsibility to teach us humility and obedience; consequently, they gra- ciously consented to initiating us in their own characteristic manner. Club initiations, basketball and baseball games, banquets, club meetings, plays, and choir trips brought our freshman year to a speedy close. Next year, when we returned to the campus, it was with a proud, familiar air! " You ' re new on the campus, aren ' t you? " we would nonchalantly say to the trembling freshmen, just to let them know that we " belonged. " This year the war was brought closer to us, for three of our classmates — Merle Black, George Caba and Leroy Reinhold — found it necessary to serve in the U. S. Army; to fight for those things that we who remain hold dear. They were the first of our class to go, and we are very proud of all of them. The year passed quickly, and before we knew it, finals were over and our course was half run. This year we came back, i.e., some of us did. Many of our old class- mates had been taking only two-year courses; many had been called to the service and some had gone to service camps. But the old class spirit still prevailed. We who remain in the class of 1945 sincerely hope that those of our members who are in the armed forces will soon come home; that those of our members who, because of accelerated programs, are now seniors, will be successful in whatever they undertake; that those who have recently joined our class will feel that they truly " belong " ; and that all of us will remember those friendships and experiences we have shared during the past three years.

Some fifty students wandered bewilderedly over its rolling acres. But strangely enough, the dignified upperclassmen accepted the " greenies " quite calmly and quickly so that they soon settled down to an unwilling existence of subservience to the Sophs. The days of green dinks and Windsor ties soon (?) passed and the Frosh established themselves as almost free and equal beings and set up a class organization. Ben Hess was elected president. The basketball team of good old E. C. was greatly strengthened by the remarkable athletic prowess of Guy Buch and Johnnie Buch. In soccer we were ably represented by Ben Hess, Cookie Arndt and Don Fink. Baseball was another activity in which the Freshman boys scored. And what would Coach Herr have done without the Freshman girls for basketball? Who can forget that star Annette Mumma, ably supported by Naomi Julius, Frances Hoover, Dolly Harnish, Sarah Gonzalez and Eliza- beth Roop? The Freshman class brought to a climactic end its first year by a sump- tuous banquet. Returning for the second year, the Frosh found their ranks greatly de- pleted. Our president is now in England, all the athletes are gone — to the Army, Navy, or to advanced training at other colleges. And so we girls are carrying the torch until the boys come back. Regardless of changes, the Sophomores, the class of nineteen forty-five, will integrate itself into the life at Elizabethtown College until the cheerful shouts of victory fill the air and our soldier and sailor boys come marching back to the Hill!

SPECIAL STUDENTS LAURA BAIR JOHN FORNEY Foi ly-four • • • " Into the valley of death rode the six hundred, Ours was not to reason why — Ours was but to do or die. " September twenty-first — registration for Freshmen. Thirty-four green Freshmen in a very panicky state arrived at Elizabeth- town College. Their first day of college life was about to begin. When they heard of the Freshman Week activities their spirits lifted. That memorable week! September twenty-eighth— Student Senate regulations went into effect. Freshmen could easily be identified on the campus by dinks, signs, pins, and handbooks. The Freshman class held their first class meeting and elected as their officers: Carl Myers, president; William Barnhart, vice-president; Helen Frain, secretary; and Floy Hummer, treasurer. Basketball tryouts began and the main contribution of the Freshman class was Miriam Forney, Pearl Fox, and Frances Krebs. Early in November the vice-president postponed his college career and was inducted into the Army. The week of the Sophomores ' initiation of Freshmen, the greenies could be seen in anything from black stockings to aprons. During that week they carried umbrellas and pillows, wore dustcaps and aprons, and did practically anything that the ingenious minds of the Sophomores could invent. But now full-fledged members of the student body, all eagerly look for- ward to the Sophomore year at Elizabethtown when they are on the giving side.

We must also remember that only one fellow, Guy, has had any experience in varsity basketball before. As the percentage of victories over defeats is steadily rising, we can be assured they are doing their best and may that percentage continue to rise.

JOHN FORNEY Our lanky, bespectacled Freshman is known for his speedy recovery of the ball. fifty three GIRLS ' BASKETBALL TEAM • • • One of the outstanding activities on the campus this year was the girls ' basketball team, coached by Ira Herr and captained by Annette Mumma The fair lassies traveled extensively to gain well-earned victories — traveled to Lock Haven, Albright, Lebanon Valley, Penn Hall in Philadelphia, and Wagner in New York.

JACK MELHORN LOUISE BAUGHER The Elizabethtown College A Cappella Choir had a successful season this year. The choir took trips to various churches to present programs and two spring concerts were given. Despite the fact that most of the men from last year ' s choir went into the armed forces, the few men left carried the tenor and bass parts successfully through the choir year. Fifty-six ENSEMBLE • • • Although hard hit by the dwindling number of upperclassmen, this or- ganization, under the direction of Mr. Galen Herr, has not lost its place in campus activities. Our only complaint about it is that it does not let its small but mighty self be heard more often. fifty-seven SOCK AND BUSKIN • • OFFICERS President GALEN E. GRAHAM Vice-President BETTY MANN Secretary HELEN GRACE BUCHER Treasurer JANE HAMPTON Adviser MISS DUPLER As one of Elizabethtown ' s most popular organizations, the dramatic club has, under the direction of Miss Dupler, continued to be successful. Last year ' s production of " Old Doc " revealed much unsuspected talent among our students and this year ' s spring play promises to discover much more. Fifty-eight CANDLES • • • President Secretary-Treasurer OFFICERS J. HENRY LONG EDWIN KEENER " To make friends, be one. " Surely a sound piece of advice which has served as the foundation of the Candles since its formation in the middle 20 ' s. Membership in the Candles is obtained by election on the basis of schol- arship, leadership, ethics, and attitude toward the College. Each spring the club holds its annual banguet for the Candle home com- ing. At this social event, past and present Candles with their " Flames " gather together to perpetuate those friendships formed while in college. Fifty-nine MINISTERIUM • • • OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary-Treasurer J. HENRY LONG DONALD LEFEVER ROBERT WILLOUGHBY The Ministerium this year underwent a number of changes and became quite a different organization from that of other years. Following a request by several girls, we opened the membership to girls who were interested in the ministry or a related field. The response was quite gratifying and perhaps the change will do much to prepare girls for Christian service. Early in the year we sustained a severe loss in the death of our adviser, Dr. Horst. We then turned to the honorary members to lead cur discussions on such subjects as " My Faith, " " Visitation by the Minister, " " The Pastor ' s Wife, " and " Ministerial Ethics. " The honorary faculty mem- bers did an excellent job in preparing us for actual work in the field of the Christian ministry. Sixty STUDENT VOLUNTEERS • • • OFFICERS President IRA GIBBEL Vice-President GLADYS NYCE Treasurer GUY BUCH Secretary RUTH McDANNEL Adviser MISS MARTIN As one of the main religious organizations on the campus, the Student Volunteers endeavor in all their activities to hold aloft the light of Christianity — by sponsoring bi-weekly meetings to which both outside speakers and mem- bers of the Volunteers themselves contribute; by doing deputation work in various churches from Sunday to Sunday during the first semester; by giving programs at the Crippled Children ' s Hospital; and by trying to the best of their ability to live from day to day Christian lives " themselves. Sixty-one COMMERCIANTES • • • OFFICERS President MARILYN MILLER Vice-President HILDA GONZALEZ Secretary-Treasurer MARY ELIZABETH HARNISH Adviser DR. BAER As a growing active organization, highly desirable for commercial stu- dents, this club is filling a great need. Always interested in the latest devel- opments in the world of business and commerce, its members have through associations in it found numerous ways to better prepare themselves for their future work. Dr. Baer has been a most capable and enjoyable adviser.

Jl F EATIU RES • • • As I sit in my helicopter with the world at my feet, I pounce upon the idea oi seeing how my old classmates are getting along. The year in 1964. I have plenty of gasoline (no coupons needed), plenty of food, and rubber was supplanted by a substitute ten years ago. Plastics have also replaced steel and we can now have pleasure helicopters. I first return to the Alma Mater to find the whereabouts of the class of ' 44, and who do I find! Bob Willoughby, now Dr. R. H. Willoughby, is head of the thriving department of Sociology. He is in the midst of his Family Sociology class so I guess I won ' t get to see him. The Elizabethtown High School has just hired one of the old school chums — Betty Brubaker. After having been air hostess on a five hundred passenger airliner for many years, she has gained too much weight and is now back to teaching the History of England and the almost forgotten subject of Latin. Oh yes, we almost forgot to say " hello " to Miss J. Z. Seltzer. Professor Herr ' s retirement to the farm has made room for his understudy in the Business Office. As a hobby she trains the College Choir which is about to go on its annual spring tour to New York City, San Francisco, Toronto, and Mt. Joy. I return to the helicopter and begin my trip. After three and one-half minutes I stop in York County to find Mable Crone as assistant principal of a grade school. Ruth McDannel (not McDannel any longer) has also settled in the vicinity and is in one of " God ' s Back Pastures " where we find her milking the cows while her husband-pastor is caring for some of his urgent pastoral duties. She always was interested in rural pas- torate work — at least after she met Ira. These small towns are beginning to work on my nerves so I ' ll move on to New York City and visit Dr. G. E. Graham. Galen became very bored with being head of the De- partment of Chemistry at Cornell, Columbia, and Purdue, and decided to open his own research lab. He ' s working on a very important experiment at the present time — the chemical relationship between Superman and his power. Virginia Boyd is his first assistant while Betty is general overseer. We always knew that Galen recognized fine assistants when he saw them. As I venture out to Riverside Drive I recognize Dr. J. Jack Melhorn, DD. He tells me that now its Fosdick and Melhorn on a Sunday morning. Jack just finished writing a book on Brethren family backgrounds and his " Peaceful Jewel " is proofreading it for any misspelled words. Since it ' s Saturday afternoon I drop in on the Metropolitan Opera which is featuring a new star — Justina R. Gilberti. After hearing her sing her own operatic compositions I realize that it is none other than the June R. Gilbert I knew while in Elizabethtown College. So she finally gave up schoolteaching in Hummelstown for Metropolitan Opera! Hopping into the good old ' helicop ' , I ' m off for Chicago to meet a few more successful citizens of our new world democracy. I arrive at the First Church of the Brethren in time to hear the Reverend J. Henry Long preach the morning sermon on " Faith for Christian Living. " After the sermon he confessed to me that Millie still writes his sermons while he coaches his six sons on to Chicago City basketball championships. After the service I met Betty Mann and, sure enough, her four years in Elizabethtown College have brought forth great fruits. Her husband (the fruit) has been teaching Biblical Interpretation at Bethany Biblical Seminary for the past five years. Betty tells me that she just got a letter from Helen Grace Bucher and Betty Peoples. They are two neighboring housewives in a small town in Pennsylvania. I always knew they ' d make good in such a noble field as homemaking. As I return home and come down to terra firma again, I pass Dr. Edwin Keener in his helicopter en route to the Melhorn residence. To think we used to look upon the poor stork as a mere figure of speech, but now contrast the " flying doctor of ' 64! " Helicopters are here to stay!

Seventy SENIOR CLASS PLAY • • • THE IMAGINARY INVALID The play selected by the class of 1944 for its Senior Class play was a French classic, " The Imaginary Invalid " by Moliere. The part of Argan, the invalid — a hypochondriac completely fooled by the pretense of love shown by a second wife who is determined to get all his money — was very ably played by Galen Graham. Helen Grace Bucher did an excellent piece of work as Toinette, the mischievous servant girl. It is she who resolves the story, bringing together the happy lovers (Betty Mann and Ira Gibbel) and reveals to Argan the true character of his wife (Betty Brubaker). Other mem- bers of the cast, Mabel Crone, Jack Melhorn, J. Henry Long and Guy Buch, played their separate roles with confidence, creating distinct characterizations in an excellent way.

PENNSYLVANIA ESTABLISHED I7W o OUR SESQUI-CENTENNIAL YEAR 1794 — 1944 Eighty-six euu u ui • • We, the Senior Class of the Elizabethtown College, County of Lancaster, State of Pennsylvania, having reached the inevitable conclusion of our college career, being of good judgment and sound mind (?), do hereby make on this the 15th day of February this last will and testament, hereby revoking any and all wills made prior to this time. We hereby make the following bequests: To the faculty: We leave them — holding their breath — in honest hope that they find future classes more interested in education. To the oncoming Seniors: We leave them with a wish that they may have a senior year as filled with happiness as was ours. To the Sophomores: We leave them extra breath and perseverance for the home stretch. To the Freshmen: We leave them the great quality of hope — hope that they too may some day become Seniors if they don ' t get discouraged, married, or drafted. To selected members of the remaining classes we bequeath the following: Virginia Boyd leaves her scientific inclinations to Jane Lott. Edwin Keener very reluctantly leaves his voice in the dangerous voice box of Don Lefever. Since Betty Brubaker is taking on schoolteaching and the conventional dress of a teacher, she leaves her army and navy uniforms to Louise Baugher and Annette Mumma. Since the college is starting a Building Campaign, Bob Willoughby is going to leave his firm foundation for the new library or new girls ' dormitory. Galen Graham leaves his two stars in the window (for Betty and Ralph) to Louise Baugher. Dot Seltzer leaves both her business technique and voice to Marilyn Miller. Henry Long leaves his ministerial inclinations to the " silver-tongued " Ira Gibbel. The schoolroom techniques of June Gilbert are graciously willed to Lois Gish. Betty Mann leaves her controlled waistline to Zatae Beetem. Jack Melhorn leaves his well-conditioned waves to Carl Myers and Harold Hunt so that they can do away with their hair-dressing gue. Helen Grace Bucher bequeaths her efficiency to Gladys Nyce. Betty Peoples leaves her domestic start to Kay Miller who seems to have already done pretty well for herself. Mable Crone leaves to her roommate interest and success in elementary education. As classes have always left this one specific thing to the faculty, so we leave to them the privilege of writing recommendations for us until we have established ourselves in the " cold, hard " world. To all who have not been specifically mentioned in this will, grab into the bag of great qualities, quantities, and quirks and take that which you want from the departing Seniors, and may all our bequests bring future success and happiness within the sacred walls of Elizabethtown College. As our last official act, we hereby appoint the president of the Junior Class of the Elizabethtown College as Executor of this, our last will and testament.
