Elizabethtown College Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania DeJit catt on • • • A man among men ... a friend to all . . . always working and serving his fellow men . . . friendly adviser and counselor. To Dr. H enry G. Bucher, Dean of Education, the class of 1947 proudly dedicates its issue of the ETONIAN. ctewot i Americans have turned their thinking from the horrors of war to quiet, peaceful, and normal living, and are once again able to think sanely and realize the presence of goodness around about them that went unnoticed during the half dozen years just past. Now these things can be seen in their true perspective and with a greater appreciation. Thus we who have spent some years " on the hill " in eastern Pennsylvania have become cognizant of a hard-working, God fearing people who inhabit this fertile section, and who have played an inestimable part in the growing of food during the past years of crises; a people who have made history with their thrift, toil, honesty, and character building. So it is fitting that the 1947 Etonian choose as its theme this year the Pennsylvania Dutch culture. — 5- e , L fcp . ' trWjp k% " i8!W . . ' [t « .

In the first place, the enrollment in colleges and universities in the United States has been over two million. This is the largest number of students ever enrolled in higher education. Approximately 1,000,000 were veterans of World War II, and were receiv- ing financial aid from the Federal Government under the G. I. Bill of Rights. Elizabethtown College has had 191 of these veterans. This number, with 195 non-veterans, gave Elizabethtown College the largest enrollment in her history. In addition, because of lack of space, the Ad- missions Office was obliged to turn away more than 300 applications during the summer of 1946. Many of these applicants were graduated in the highest quarter of their classes. In the second place, Elizabethtown College has added two buildings to her facilities — North and South Halls — which serve as dormitories for men. Another building is now under construction which will be used as a recitation hall. These buildings have been given to the College by the Federal Government. In addition to these buildings a large amount of equip- ment, such as chairs, tables, desks, has also been secured from the Government. In the midst of the rapidly expanding program of higher education in the country, the United States Office of Education predicts a continuing upward trend in enrollment so that by 1955 probably more than 3,000,000 students will be attending the colleges and universities of the country. At this very moment there is a movement on foot to inaugurate a program of Federal aid to higher education through a National Scholarship Plan. Under such a program financial aid would be given to young men and women of superior mental ability for study in colleges and universities. The philosophy back of this proposal is that the professional and scientific personnel of the country is a national asset and to develop it amounts to conserving our national resources. In the light of these trends in education, Elizabethtown College aims to keep alert to her opportunities and responsibilities by upholding the Christian ideal of character coupled with sound scholarship. To this end she at all times endeavors to prepare youth to be able to com- pete on bases where ability, Christian character, and industry are recognized. The record of our alumni gives us legitimate grounds for pride in their achievement and we have the firm hope that you who are about to take your place in the vocations and profes- sions will continue to uphold our record. The endowment of Elizabethtown College, as for any college, rests not only in her finan- cial resources, but in her alumni, her faculty, and her friends as well. Our hope is that each of you may add yourself to this living endowment of Elizabethtown College and to champion the highest goals for which the College stands. rv AjU 1( • 11 BOARD OF TRUSTEES Executive Committee J.

Richard Wenger, Glenn Kinsel, Jean Sharpe, and Marian Shaub as members. Due to the accelerated program, these students, who are now members of tin Senior class, were listed as Juniors when the Etonian went to press. — 27- lit The class of ' 47 is the must unique of all the graduating classes in the history of Elizabethtown College, in that there is so much variation in the histories of the individuals who compose the class. Only eight in the class of ' 47 started in the fall of ' 43 and followed the regular course of instruction. Some started as Freshmen long before the fall of ' 43 and were interrupted by the war. Others stepped up by the accelerated program. Some have graduated ahead of us, including Carl Myers, who was presi- dent during the freshman and sophomore years. As freshmen, the class of ' 47 was the last class to go through the week of formal initiation, which tradition planted in E. C. As Juniors we elected Frances Krebs president of the class. Toward the end of the year, the class made two important decisions — to have a Senior Class play, and to begin the practice of publishing a yearbook every year instead of every two years. Now we are Seniors. LeRoy Reinhold is leading the class as president this year. Even though there is great difference in our ages and experiences, we are on common ground now. United in sincerity of purpose, we are going forth, " Educated to Serve.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY The passing parade of time is marked by advancement and progress, par- ticularly in the field of higher education. When we entered Elizabethtown Col- lege three years ago as freshmen, we were uncertain as to the goals we were seeking to attain. We faced the future apprehensively, but now that we are juniors these goals and aims have become mure clearly defined. As we ap- proach the climax of our college career, we feel that we have grown spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. However, with our advancement we have received greater responsibility to others and to ourselves. As freshmen, we could boast the largest enrollment of any one class, but during the war years this number decreased, particularly the male population. In the sophomore year several were added to our class and now we have ex- panded beyond our original number. With this expansion and assimilation of new students, we have attempted to adapt ourselves to the changing environ- ment and contribute to the welfare and growth of all. As we near the end of college, the statement that, ' college days are the happiest days of your life ' finds added meaning for us. Out of our many expe- riences here, we hope to go out to live and serve in a world which will accept only the best. We face the world with hope and confidence that when we enter our respective fields of service, we will give our best to promote peace and understanding ami to develop a ' world consciousness.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY It has been two years since eighty-five timid freshmen appeared on the Elizabethtown College campus. The weeks passed rapidly and traces of home- sickness and shyness wcyv drowned in hard work. Forty freshmen (1. I. ' s en- rolled at Elizabethtown to resume their studies, ruder the leadership of Eugene Witmer, Maxine Bowman, Kathleen Baugher, and Marjorie Brower, the class established for itself a place on the campus. Skating parties, hikes, programs and banquets helped the year pass quickly. The next year the class roster remained practically the same with few addi- tions in- changes. The group was ably steered through the second year by Charles Forney, Doris Thatcher, Romaine Evans, Anna Kepner and Elberta Fox. Along with harder work came the Halloween Party, Thanksgiving and Christ- mas Banquets, and the Valentine Party. Frankie Keath and Dick Ilivner dem- onstrated their outstanding ability on the basketball floor with Frankie main- taining the highest average of points per game in the state, and Dick keeping up tin ' good work on the floor. So, with a feeling of accomplishment and satis- faction, we, the Class of ' 49, look forward with a great deal of pleasure to the two years ahead of us. 12 FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS WILBUR BUCHER ROBERT BRACKBILL MARY STONER JESSE SHEETZ President 1 ' ice-President Secretary Treasurer — 43 FRESHMEN 7 ' k i row — Paul Alwine, Johnstown, Pa.

A torrent of mankind, from all corners of the globe, cast itself with a flood of expectation upon a desolate campus. A fascinating horde of appendages strolled across the " welcome mat, " A more grotesque mass of protoplasm never existed. Some came from Florida, others from Connecticut, a few ventured from Brooklyn. Here was the " melt- ing pot " of learning, " And what do you possess now? " , we command the freshman class of " 50 " . A family that has invaded every sphere of action, from the sapphire of the dining room, to the diamond of the ball field; a faction of society that is des- tined to lead, this is our destiny. With the excellent guidance of Dr. Apgar, we have attained perpetual motion. We will produce athletes, clowns, culinary specialists, and only the future knows what else. The class of " 50 " hopes to start a renaissance unequalled in the annals of E-town. — 52- OUR Student Government Religion Clubs — 54 — Drama Publications Music ACTIVITIES .-,.-. f 1 ijd fM sg fertkj} l» XfiK EfSSS Eggggaf- if ' ■ JJ, ' j?j |p Fl Bf • ' ■ ail ■rnAB9 BS0 s i h 1 5 ■UumS s S3f V ' y.

As the season progressed, the squad narrowed down to just a little above normal in size. With its new team name, the " Blue Jays " also built up a name for them- selves as stiff competitors. Although their victories were not as numerous as expected, any team that met the Blue Jays was given a tough battle. The crown- ing event of the season took place when the Jays beat their old rivals — Juniata — and in celebration the administrative committee declared a holiday. Only two members of the squad, Paul Reed and Eddie Boll, will be lost through graduation. Sophomore Frank Keath has been building a name for E-town by holding down top scoring honors in the state. With another year of experience under their feet, the Blue Jays should fly high next year. — 72- ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE VARSITY BASKETBALL SCHEDULE 1946-1947 Wed., Dec. 4 — Wed., Feb. 5 — Juniata Huntingdon Philadelphia Pharmacy Science Home Sat., Feb. 8 — Susquehanna Home Sat., Dec. 7 — Bloomsburg Home Tues., Feb. 11 — Lebanon Valley Lebanon Wed.; Dec. 11— Haverford Home Thurs., Feb. 13— Shepherd Sat., Dec. 14 — Albright Reading Shepherdstown, W.

With Carroll Spence as captain, the Jay-Vees put up hard fights for their opponents, and one of their biggest accomplishments of the season was their victory in an exciting game with the Lebanon Valley J-V ' s. With a twelve-game schedule of experience behind them, the Jay-Vees have a core around which to build a strong team next year. Some of the fast-stepping Jays may graduate to Varsity by next season. -73- GIRLS ' VARSITY BASKETBALL THE " BLUE BIRDS " The E. C. Blue Birds have made quite a record for themselves this season. At the present writing, they have lost only three out of ten games, defeating the strong East Stroudsburg team twice! This in itself is an accomplishment that has not been achieved for at least five years. Two Senior forwards, Captain Frances Krebs and Ruth Cromie, will be lost through graduation, hut there are several forward prospects among the Freshmen to team up with the third regular, LaRue Monn, who built up a large scoring record her first year on the hill.
