Dedication I O KNOW is the goal of man; to find truth, his eternal hope. But to many men the free pursuit of knowledge and truth is denied. There are those in the free World committed to the up- holding of the right of all men, regardless of race, color, creed, or sex, to the sharing of these ideals. They are the Writers— novelists, dramatists, poets, journalists, Advocates of free libraries and a free press, Educators, teachers of independent positive thinking. Ministers and rhissionaries, spreading the Christian gospel, Heads of government working for universal freedom and justice, and the Others, great or small, who recognize the inherent right of all men to all the knowledge they desire and need. It is to these people that the 1954 Conestogan is dedicated. f ' . . . . ignorance is the curse of God, Knowledge the wing wherewith we fly to heaven ... Shakespeare Foreword I HE THEME of the 1954 Conestogan is an ideal. Based on the liberties consonant with freedom of inquiry and expression, it is a theme particularly appropriate in a day when these liberties are threatened. It is a theme of many facets based on five main topics: " The Inclusiveness of Man The Values of Knowledge Man ' s Right to Knowledge Man ' s Right to the Free Use of Knowledge The Responsibilities of Knowledge. " Because it is the duty of all men everywhere to awake to the vital message of these principles we have selected as our theme the summary thesis — " Man ' s Right to Knowledge and the Free Use Thereof. " Theme of Columbia University Bicentennial Celebration. mm ■- Contents Students 5 Faculty 49 Activities 61 Organizations .... 69 Athletics 83 Advertisements ... 91 IN OUR STUDENT body the idea of the inclusiveness of man in relation to his right to knowledge becomes reality. Representing a host of religious, cultural, economic, national, and racial backgrounds, we come to Elizabethtown with a common purpose - the search for knowledge. This ideal is further portrayed in the areas in which the college offers opportunities for the education of adults.

FRANCES BISHOP Oberlin, Penna. B.S.

Not, however, confining our labors to classroom theory or outside activity, many of us had a chance to acquire some practical training in our fields of study. Bob Albright and Leroy Miller made their TV debuts on the " College of the Air " series by assisting E. C. pro- fessors in presenting scientific subjects. Whenever a re- ligious activity was in progress, prospective ministers Duane Smith, Sherwood Thomas, and Dave Wilson could be counted on to assist.

An entire day in the school combined with lesson plans and discipline problems made our day trying, but the thrills offset the throes. At least sometimes. Some of our class left us after onlv two or three years to begin work or to continue study in hospital labora- tories. As sophomores, Jane Waller, Barbara Delson, Joanne Groff, Barbara Brenner, Phyllis Longenecker, Marian Miller, Thelma Neidlinger and Mary Barley Horst received certificates in medical technology, secre- tarial science, and medical secretarial science. When juniors, Joyce Moore and Zona Findley also were certifi- cated in medical technology. DONALD HAAS Harrisburg. Penna. B.S. Business Administration EILEEN HEISE Hamlin. Kansas A.B.

Athletically speaking, we sported Bill Foster. Hal Wilson. Paul Wechter. Bill Meyers, and George Frost on field, court, and diamond. On stage and platform the seniors performed with distinction. Actors Jean Roland. George Frost, and Paul Greiner trod the boards in many a play portraying a host of roles in their four years of drama- tics.

Jean Burk- hart and her Ford transported many a deputation team. And the autos of Shirley Young, Nancy Stuckey, and David Hoover often took on the duties regularly assigned to a bus. Then there is the dignified relic that Glenn For- ney proudly brought to campus, but only when clouds were few. Some of us will be remembered for a number of little things: Danny Whitacre as the man with the inquisitive camera; Eileen Heise for her literary discussions; Art Burdett for his argumentations; and Dick McKean and Jim Klock for their notorious " jokes. " Although most ot us had scholarships, parental or G.I. aid to make the grade financially, many of us also worked at one thing or another. BETTY SAYLOR East Petersburg, Penna. B.S.

Betty Saylor was our housewife — college coed. Our class contained the only married couple on cam- pus — Mark and Anita Keeney. Anita, incidentally, is a native of Sweden. The couple plan to study at a semi- nary and then enter mission work. Other prospective missionaries from our class are Eva Mae Melhorn and George Bundy. George, who com- pleted his work at the end of the first semester, has al- ready sailed for Southern Rhodesia, Africa. Also expecting to enter the Christian ministry after preparation in varied seminaries are Duane Smith, Sher- wood Thomas, Daniel Whitacre, and Dave Wilson. Other ministers include La Mar Dinger, Edward Foster, and Robert Schappell. G. DUANE SMITH Trafford, Penna. A.B. Liberal Arts NANCY STUCKEY Elizabethtown, Penna. B.S.

Ronald Murphy, Robert Shetler, and David Hoover also plan careers in science. The second E.

In the field of educa- tion thirteen of us expect to teach in secondary schools, nine in kinder- gartens and elementary ' schools. Others of us will enter, volun- tarily or otherwise, the armed forces before pursuing our chosen profes- sion. As we leave Elizabethtown Col- lege to pursue these graduate courses and these occupations, we do so with the understanding that we have hardly made ripples on the surface of the depths of knowledge. But we know that the things we have learned in the classroom and through living with others will prove invaluable in acquiring new knowl- edge and in using it to help our fel- lows.

Active par- ticipants in every student activity, we fit significantly into every area of campus life. And junior leadership has provided the backbone for many a campaign and party. Quite as notable as our energy, is the variety demonstrated by our class. Serving as one example is the wide range of jobs we held during last summer. In the wilds of Idaho was forest ranger Jaywood Bru- baker; in the mountains of Puerto Rico served Jim Miller, who helped in the con- struction of a new school; at seashore re- sorts, seeking both the sun and some ready cash, were waitresses Edythe Edwards, Nancy Hoffman, and Marigrace Bucher; in New York City was Gerry Wolff, who took undergraduate courses at New York University.

After the soprano-bass strains of Marigrace Bucher and Paul Rice singing " Make Be- lieve " the review approached its climax in a passionate cancan straight from " Moulin Rouge " and a revue of the very latest Parisian frocks, both featuring a bevy of comely and charming " damsels. " The task of directing this array of music and " drama " fell to Nancy Hoffman. An exclusively junior activity was our entertainment of both seniors and two-year students at the annual Junior-Senior ban- quet held May 14. Scene of the affair was the Harrisburg Civic Club, overlooking the east shore of the Susquehanna River. HAZEL CRANKSHAW DONALD CRUMBLING Maytown, Penna. Columbia. Penna. H.

RETURNING from summer employment, or even more relaxing unemployment, we found, ready to lead us, our class officers. Serving his third term as president (but without a New Deal) was Jim Miller as- sisted by vice-president Don Zook. Our secretary, Patricia Kratz, and treasurer, Walter Schell, were, like Jim, three-star class officers. Studying hard for most of the first semes- ter, we waited until January to bring on stage our own original variety show which certainly had, if nothing else, variety. In- viting the participation of talented mem- bers of other classes, we gave forth with song and skit both aesthetic and frivolous. 21 CARL GEARY Harrisburg, Penna. MARION HALDEMAN Pottsville, Penna.

Hoover, known for his class-room wit. Providing the musical entertainment were Red McCarthy and his band. Sports — journalism — student government — reli- gious activities — clubs — juniors are everywhere and in each activity. Who, for example, can dispute Paul Rice ' s sovereignty as the only junior in the college quartets? Or his excellence as baritone soloist? Also claiming a title, is Harvey Jacobs in the sports department. The easy-going athlete is the only junior to participate in three intercollegiate sports — soccer, basketball, and baseball. Also prominent on the soccer field were George and Bill Heisey. And adding their prowess to E-town courtsters were Jay Brubaker, Jay Rutherford and 6 ' 6 " Don Crumbling. Harry Thomas has been efficiency itself in his role as basketball manager. Harry even managed to net two points when he was put in a game against Sus- quehanna. On the tennis court we sported racketeers Bill Beaston, Don Martin, Gerry Wolff, and Don Zook. Chosen to represent our class on the May Court were blondes Carole Alexander and Pat Kratz. A transfer student majoring in medical technology, Carole has served on the junior social committee. Pat, our college newspaper editor, is equally at ease paying homage to the May Queen, setting up the " dummy " for the next Etownian, or providing a bit of entertainment at the piano.

This year Jim served as vice-president of the Student Senate and as co-chair- man of the Community Chest Drive. March election campaigns saw juniors competing for campus offices. Displaying posters, distributing gum and the inevitable lollipops, our campaign man- agers drew students to the polls as we sought places in student government, on publications, and in other or- ganizations. Our classes also kept us busy. In Children ' s Litera- ture class some of us delightedly but sheepishly went back a few years to taste again tales of the brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and A. A. Milne.

The " ten o ' clock schol- ars " acquired, it seems, in addition to a thorough knowledge of the pranks of our ancestors, some well-exercised writing hands. A number of us had jobs on campus. Nancy Hoff- man and Hazel Knappenberger have each had three years of experience answering phones and pouring at teas in their positions as assistants to the heads of residence in Alpha and Fairview Halls. Grace Mutzabaugh ' s pleasant " Nurse in the hall " brought the hope that dinner was coming to some isolated patient. In the college store was Chris Buc- cieri, whose patience and speed were vital in satisfy- ing the whims of the ten o ' clock gang clamoring for service. Others served as laboratory assistants, waitresses, and janitors ' helpers. No more changing courses for us! Now most of us have definitely planned what we want to do upon graduation. For twenty-one of us the goal is teaching. Liberal arts courses are preparing three of us to be ministers, one to be missionary, and one a social worker; eight of us are majoring in business ad- ministration. Of our science majors, one is planning a future in electronic engineering and another in veterinary practice. Two will enter the field of chemistry, two plan to teach, and two hope to enter medical school. vistas that beckon each W. DONALD MARTIN Mt. Joy, Penna. JAMES MILLER Elizabethtown, Penna.

They ' ve acquired the new sophomoric dignity without losing the old freshman enthusiasm. " An intelligent observation, indeed! Ours is a class that really does things! College splash parties in the M.S.T.C. pool, a roller skating party, a night at the Ice Capades, and our original and exclusively sophomore variety show, " The De- but of International Color Television " were just a few of the sophomore-sponsored activities. Serving as the catalyst of our ninety-member group is our energetic president. Charles Bechtel. Assisting him are Paul Grubb, vice-president; Carol Berry, secretary: and Ralph Mover, treasurer. Actually, it ' s not sophomoric egotism but a solid fact that many extra-curricular activities on campus would suffer were it not for the sophomore " spark. " Reboundman Dick Stine. E-town ' s " Robinson Crus- oe " would sorely be missed on the varsity basket- ball squad. Six out of twelve of Prof. Byerly ' s grunt- and-groan men — Don Carlin. Jack Byers, Charlie Derk. Clair Metzler. Fran Heck, and Jay Gibble — are members of our class. The cheerleading squad is composed almost ex- clusively of sophomores, not to mention those power- ful voices of our class coming from the bleachers. Captain Shirley Junkin. Elva Jean Lehman, Lois King, and Lucy Baugher take honors in this depart- ment. And let ' s not forget our Bluebirds, who would miss the scoring punch of Janet Hunsberger and Bernice Bratton. Our soccer squad needs such key sophomore men as Jack Ferich. Ralph Moyer, Orwin Keeney, Mel Longenecker. Tyler Trimmer. Dick Stine. Charlie and Bill Bechtel. Charlie Derk. and Clair Metzler. 29 JANET EARHART Elizabethtoun, Penna. JANET EVANS Roversford. Penna. RALPH ESHELMAN Elizabethtown. Penna. ROBERT FAUS Manheim. Penna. JaNET HUNSBERGER.

Musically speaking, the a cappella choir needs the voices of Dolly Longenecker, Elva Jean Lehman, Pat Minnich, Sally Knepper, Evelyn Bell, Mary Dilling. Jay Gibble. Ralph Moyer, Jack Byers, Paul Grubb. Jim Yoder, and Harold Wenger. Second tenor Ralph Moyer and choir presi- dent Paul Grubb harmonize with our col- lege men ' s quartet. The Sock and Buskin club would be practically without members if it were not for sophomore thespians. Eleven out of thirteen roles in th e club ' s one-act plays were handled by sophomores. Two attractive brunettes represented our class on the May Court this year — Lucy Baugher and Carol Berry (roommates no less!) interest The engaged of our group include Josephine Leppo. Betty Williams, Charles Cobaugh, and Jack Ferich, while Ken Franklin is married and has a little daugh- ter. Many of our number make individual contributions, extending their influence beyond the campus. Jay Gibble was elected president of the Brethren Student Christian Association which includes all Brethren colleges in the United States. Pat Minnich is also active in both district and state C.B.Y.F. work. For the past seven years William Carmitchell has attended meetings of the U.N.. and in 1952 represented the American Friends Society in a political tour of Europe. JOHN FERICH. JR.

Elizabethtown College — this was to be our Alma Mater, our home away from home — where we would meet new friends, acquire habits, develop personalities, and mature into men and women cap- able of accepting the responsibili- ties forced upon us in this world of conflict. But now we were unacquainted with these buildings, these people, and perhaps deep inside, each of us was a bit afraid, a bit timid about entering into this new and different way of living. Now we had to make our own decisions. We were com- pletely " on our own. " But the day of " embarking " had arrived. There was no time for looking back. People everywhere were hurrying or trying to hurry under loads of boxes, bags, suit- cases, and study lamps, propelled in the right direction by helpful stu- dent senators.

I EA AND AN informal dinner in the gym pro- vided opportunities for meeting these new people — deans and faculty, roommates and classmates, parents and relatives. Tests and registration followed in quick succes- sion. And after the tour of the massive Masonic Homes, the " get acquainted " parties, the informal gatherings in Fairview Hall around Pete Thompson and his trumpet, and the all-college picnic at the He-rshey Community Park, we freshmen began to feel that we truly belonged in this bustling college community. Dinks — oh how we enjoyed (?) wearing those attractive (?) contraptions of blue and gray that perched on our heads like misplaced felt bowls. " We hail thee Alma Mater dear, " was very popular dur- ing this week of sophomore regulations, and it was no surprise, at the sound of a whistle, to see us, clothes inside out and carrying our books in bags and wastepaper cans, suddenly drop to our knees, dump our books, and seek refuge under our bags and cans from sophomore " bombers " hovering over- head. We were quite surprised to see what attractive girls some of our boys would make, especially a cute " doll " named " Mabel " Rojohn. 41 GLADYS H1XSON Elizabethtown. Penna.

We are sure Glenn Bixler remembers this chilly punishment. The day of Homecoming finally arrived, and we freshmen mustered our muscle and might and there by the lake, the scene of many a fresh- man dunking, we defeated the sophomores in a thrilling tug-o-war.

But we had one common meeting ground: English Composition. There we struggled together. And what was our aim? — a theme for Wednesday — a simple thing to say but most difficult to produce. Then there was the slight battle with the bibliographies as we commenced the job of writing a term paper. DELORIS TURNER Grasonville. Maryland CHARLES WEAVER Manheim, Penna. VERNA WEAVER Lititz.

But then who minded the odors when one was so privileged as to be able to dissect grasshoppers and earthworms? Bob Knappenberger was elected president of our class in our freshman year and Ed Muller. vice-presi- dent. The secretary was Sandy Fitzkee and the " girl with all the money " was Joanne Evans. Our class was very fortunate in having three students representing countries other than our own. Inna Daniloff from Latvia is aiming for an A.B. in Liberal Arts and Christa Noll whose homeland is Germany is planning to be a medical technician. From Puerto Rico came Alberto Zayas who is ma- joring in science. incident. The FRESHMEN have added much to all fields of interest on campus. In the realm of athletics they have excelled, introducing such stars as Sal Paone, Lou Lauria, Rodney Berkley, and Bob Wert. The hockey and girls ' basketball teams have been strengthened by freshmen girls such as Audrey Sprenkle, Hazel Yoder, Ina Reichard, and Joanne Evans. Musically speaking, our class can boast of many contributors. Don Golden at the piano and organ and Gloria Gladfelter and Ken Miller in the vocal department, to mention only a few. Scholastically, we ' re tops with our dean ' s list achievers like Nancy Swanson, Sylvia Weiss, Bob Knappenberger, and Gloria Keller. Yes, we have changed in this year. We have lived new experiences, made new friends, learned new things. And it is with eagerness that we look forward to our future years at Elizabethtown College. KENNETH WISE Highspire, Penna.

YOUNG Administrative Assistant GRACE ALLAN Head of Residence JESSIE COSNER Head of Residence 50 MAN IS endowed with an insatiable de- sire for knowledge. His curiosity to learn begins at birth and continues throughout life. His mind is constantly searching for new truths. Freedom to seek truth is the divine right of man. It is one of the charac- teristics which distinguishes man from the rest of creation. In his search for truth man sweeps the heavens with his telescope; he opens the atom to discover the secrets of matter; he explores the human mind to find the reasons for the ways of man; he finds inspiration as much in the infinitesi- mally small as in the infinitely large. He goes everywhere in search of knowledge. A young man or woman who accepts the privileges of a four year college educa- tion thereby assumes an obligation to his family, to his Alma Mater, and to society. And the only way by which this obligation can be even partially discharged is through service. The motto of Elizabethtown Col- lege — Educate for Service — is fully in keeping with this philosophy. Consonant with the American spirit of democracy, society must grant the indi- vidual opportunity to serve commensurate with the knowledge he has been permitted to gain. PRESIDENT A. C. BAUGHER Alpha Hall, the hub of the cam- pus, serves as administrative, dining, and housing unit. Of- fices of the president, dean, treasurer, deans of men and women, and alumni secretary oc- cupy the main floor.

Dean Greene points out the quiet hour regulations to North and South Hall proctors George Frost (left) and William Foster. Housing regulations estab- lished for the eighty dormitory students are also applicable to the forty men students living in nearby off-campus homes. Rules include instruc- tions for study, for room care, and in courtesies expected in dormitory living. The dean also ar- ranges for personal consultation. How to pour at teas and answer the telephone are only a few of the duties explained by Vera R. Hackman, Dean of Women, as she instructs the as- sistants to heads of residences. Marian Meyer (standing) is senior director of house activi- ties in Memorial Hall. Her as- sistant is Gwendolyn Miller (seated, upper left). Beside Miss Miller is Nancv Hoffman, assist- ant in Alpha Hall. Hazel Knap- penberger assists in the Fairview dormitory. 53 For whatever deserves DR. FREDERICK NEUMANN In teaching modern languages, Dr. Neu- mann is assisted by Mrs. Elinor Neu- mann, instructor in German I, and Mrs. Kathryn Heir, instructor in French I and II. Liberal Arts majors, whether meeting the language requirement in French, Ger- man, or Spanish, soon discover that a second or third language unlocks doors to treasure stores of other cultures. Edgar T. Bitting, instructor in Business, and Elinor Eastlack, in- structor in Business Education, pose between classes near the corridor bulletin board. Mr. Bitting teaches accounting and Mathematics of Business. Miss Eastlack instructs secretarial science majors in Typing I and II, Shorthand I and II, Business Correspondence, and Office Machine Practice. Prof. Albert Gray pauses on the steps of the Business Education Building to chat with Mr. Henry Gingrich, instructor in Business Law, before going to his class in Advanced Business Statistics. Both courses are required of students majoring in Business Ad- ministration. 54 to exist deserves also to be known Freshmen recall the patience of Mr. Meyer in answering the hundreds of questions those term papers evoke. ALICE S. HEILMAN Librarian In the well-appointed library Mrs. Heilman mo- tivates the student ' s quest for knowledge by establishing pleasant, efficient service, by giving guidance to leisure time reading, by increasing the services of the library to meet changing stu- dent needs. This year stacks were opened to students, special loan exhibits were secured, and special collections were augmented. EPHRAIM G. MEYER Reference Librarian Dr. R. W. Schlosser, professor of English, confers with members of the department, Vera R. Hack- man and Dr. Louise Kelly, on English course offerings. Dr. Schlosser teaches courses in Eng- lish and American literature. Miss Hackman is adviser to all student publications — The Con- estogan, The Etownian, The Rudder — and teaches a course in journalism. Dr. Kelly teaches English composition and directs the activities of the dramatic club, Sock and Buskin. 55 for knowledge is Dr. W. W. Peters, professor of sociology and psychology, discusses his three-year post-war stay in Austria with Wilhelm Reuning, assistant pro- fessor of history and political science.

Their courses in Sur- vey of Biblical History and Biblical Literature have given many students a more comprehensive understanding of the English Bible. Rider Memorial Hall combines the campus chapel, recreation center, classrooms, music rooms, and college store into a center of all-campus activities. Professor Elmer B. Hoover, director of student teaching, discusses new workshop methods in ele- mentary art education with Mrs. Beryl Hahn, teacher of Public School Art.

The Activities E, created in 1953, is awarded to members of the a cappella choir and college quar- tets, to participants in the Intercol- legiate Conference on Government and International Relations Club conferences, to students participat- ing in deputations to the churches, and to editors and reporters. The Varsity E is earned by stu- dents meeting the award require- ments in any one of five sports. 70 ELEVEN students gather at the conference table in the Student Ac- tivities office. A prayer for guidance is offered and another meeting of the student senate has begun. Dur- ing the meeting items both small and momentous are considered with the same serious thoughtful con- sideration as the elected representa- tives attempt to carry out plans for the benefit of the student body who chose them. Senate leaders are Nor- man Bowers, president; James Mil- ler, vice-president: Jean Roland, secretary; and Frances Bishop, treasurer. Student-elected groups dealing with more specific problems of the college community are the commit- tees on men ' s and women ' s affairs. Whether they help a student with a personal problem or " lobby " for a new hot-plate, the ultimate aim of the committees ' work is more har- monious campus living. Student senators, deep in discussion over the March 1 student assembly, consider the pros and cons of donating student breakage fees toward the building of a new field house. President Norman Bowers, right, examines the problem with senators James Miller, George Frost, Patricia Kratz, Shirley Young, Frances Bishop, Harold Wilson, William Bechtel, Leroy Miller, Jean Roland, and Paul Rice. Members of the Committee on Women ' s Affairs gather in the Alpha living room to check shipping charges on packages of essential items to be sent to Korea. Chairman Mary Ann Beck, center, is surrounded by Nancy Hoffman, Sail ie Mae John- son, Nancy Stuckey, Edythe Edwards, and Frances Bishop. I would address Bill Beaston. chairman of the Committee on Men ' s Affairs, and committee members Ralph Moyer and Charles Bechtel discuss spring social events to be held on campus. 71 one general admonition OERVING the three-fold purpose of bringing students the news of campus activities, keeping alumni up-to-date on their Alma Mater, and providing a laboratory for journalism students, is the Etownian, our college monthly. Combing the campus, Editor Patricia Kratz and her staff gather items of interest for straight news stories, feature articles, and editorials. Interviewing people, scurrying after more people to get them in a picture, writing and re-writing copy, measur- ing picas and inches, pasting proof in place on a dummy of seemingly unlimited capacity, taking said dummy to be printed, and finally distributing the finished copies — all are elements included in the making of an Etownian. Addressing individual copies — the final step before mailing the Etownian — are the managers : Donald Zook, circulation, and Jay Frey, business. They handle 3200 copies per issue from September to May. Etownian editor Patricia Kratz explains the or ganization of page make-up to members of the class in journalism: Leah Kann, Loretta Kline, and Frances Bishop, all staff reporters. Etownian staff members write, rewrite, and type last minute copy as they rush to meet the dead- line. Sports editor George Frost, at the type- writer, is surrounded by Nancy Hoffman, feature writer; Jean Roland, news editor; and Eileen Heise, assistant editor. 72 to all; that they consider what are the V..ONESTOGAN editor Paul Greiner, to- gether with his staff, records in photograph, caption, and copy the memories of another college year. Here all may read and remem- ber those cherished trivialities and live again the unforgettable moments of insight, challenge, and resolution. Into the making of a book of memories go unnumbered hours of planning, writing, revising, selling advertisements, reading proof, patiently and painstakingly pasting pictures and copy into place. Thus the 1954 Conestogan becomes another of the pictorial and written records of our college. Checking the CONESTOGAN dummy in its final stages are Shirley Diehl, art editor; George Frost, sports editor; Paul Greiner, editor: Jean Roland, assistant editor; and Nancy Hoffman, writer. Trimming and pasting pictures, Joyce Miller and Charles Cobaugh hurry to meet the deadline for the faculty section as Gwendolyn Miller writes captions. Cassandra Fitzkee looks on as Frances Bishop and Jack Ferich write the names and addresses of students for Conestogan copy as Pat Kratz makes the final check in the card catalogue.

Singing together and separately, the quartets present programs of both sacred and secular selections. In addition to appearing in choir con- certs, the eight songsters give programs of their own to clubs and organizations. Also, they participated in the Pennsylvania Choral Festival held at Lock Haven State Teachers College in February. Paul Rice served the group as announcer and Donald Golden as accompanist. Whether playing a robust Sousa march or a smooth Strauss waltz, the brasses and woodwinds of the college band filled the air around Memorial once a month with energetic melody. The twenty-member band frequently provided music for soccer and basketball games and had a part in the annual spring concert.

The cries of " Programs! " " Candy! " announce two Varsity E projects. The club members use the proceeds from the attractive informative pamphlets and energy-packed candy to purchase honor sweaters for junior and senior participants who have earned three varsity letters. " Blue and Gray, fight! fight! " reaches the player caught in a squeeze. New determination puts the team in the lead once more. Cheer fol- lows cheer. The whole student body comes to their defense.

Chosen this year were Dolores Landis and William Foster. Dolores, playing four years of college basketball, has three years of service as a guard for the varsity Bluebirds. Bill has seen four years of action as a varsity basketball forward for the Jaymen and three years as goalie for the soccer squad. The two received trophies at the Recognition Banquet, May 18.

Programs are varied — an off-campus speaker discussing the importance of the ecumenical movement ... a round table discussion on campus dating ... a quiet Quaker meeting of silent worship ... an old-fashioned hymn sing. Providing a portion of campus recrea- tion is another major SCA task. A Hallow- een party in October, caroling and a party for orphans at Christmas — these are a few SCA sponsored activities. Exchange programs with Millersville and Lebanon Valley carried the group ' s work off cam- pus. An SCA project new this year was a Bible study group under the leadership of Janet Varner. A second project was the Campus Chest Fund conducted in coopera- tion with the Student Senate. SCA officers Sherwood Thomas, Donald Fogelsanger, Nancy Hoffman, and Donald Zook check the progress of their mem- bership drive held in September. Ex- amining a chart, Don Fogelsanger indi- cates the column for Center Hall, which had a 100 per cent enrollment. Attending a morning worship service at the autumn SCA cabinet retreat at Camp Swatara are Jean Diehl, Mary Dilling, Jean Roland, Donald Zook, Jay Gibble, Sher- wood Thomas. Professor Byerly, Duane Smith, Walter Schell, Carl Geary, Ralph Moyer, Jack Byers, and Janet Varner. 78 or fame, or power ANOTHER spoke in the wheel of religious activity is the Lutheran Student Association. A unit of the national fellowship for Lutheran students, the group meets once a month. LSA meetings feature informal discussions ranging from the spiritual problems faced by college students to race relations, to the meaning of faith, to foreign affairs. The group also sends delegates to area and regional LSA conferences. Adviser to the organization is Rev. Raymond Fetter, pastor of the Christ Lutheran Church, El izabethtown. New this year is Eta Gamma Kappa, an organization composed of pre-ministerial students and others interested in full-time church work. Advised by Professor Byerly. the members meet to dis- cuss problems prevalent in their profession and to seek pre-professional guidance. They make trips to area churches to examine first-hand the actual work involved in serving as pastors. Duane Smith, president of Eta Gamma Kappa, presides as new members are initiated into the club in a candlelight service. Other officers assisting in the induction are Ralph Moyer, secretary- treasurer and Call Geary, vice-president. Initiates are Donald Willoughby, William Stoneback, and William Carmitchell. Heading the L.S.A. is President George Frost here discussing plans for the Buck Hill Falls spring LSA conference with Mary Ann Beck, secretary-treasurer, and Edythe Edwards, vice-presi- dent. .Representing the college in thirty-three Pennsylvania churches were the deputation teams. Student ministers, worship helpers, and quartets traveled more than three thousand miles to present programs of worship. Forty- three singers served in the quartets assisting speakers Robert Faus, Jack Ferich, Donald Fogelsanger, Kenneth Franklin, Carl Geary. Jay Gibble, Mark Keeney, Duane Smith, Sherwood Thomas. Daniel Whitacre, and David Wilson. Don Fogelsanger. student minister, informs other members of a deputation team of the text for his morning ' s sermon.

For the May day audience, the group wrote, directed, and dramatized Hansel and Gretel. Dr. Louise K. Kelly advised the group. Jean Roland served as president, with Paul Greiner, vice-president; Mary Jane Hoffer, secretary; and Charles Bechtel, treasurer. The All-College Players, organized four years ago. produces a play each fall com- posed of both students and faculty. The group usually presents dramas with a re- ligious background. Proceeds from the plays are used for the improvement of campus facilities. Officers this year were Galen Herr, president, and Patricia Kratz, secretary. Discipline problems and lesson plans are topics for discussion as student teachers William Foster, Dorothy Shearer, and Nancy Stuckey share class- room experiences. They, with other prospective teachers on campus, are members of the FTA. The H. K. OBER Chapter of Future Teachers of America provides education majors with more than a " pre-profes- sional " fellowship. Through the issues of the NEA Journal, the PSEA Journal, the FTA yearbook, and the personal growth leaflets, members are kept abreast of the latest trends and newest ideas in their field.

Physical education and the knowledge of clean physical living support the old adage concerning " a sound mind in a sound body. " Therefore, with the tensions of modern living ever on the in- crease and with the greater demand for mental activity in industry, it is urgent that men learn to relax through physical exercise. The Student-Alumni Gymnasium Field Hockey WOMEN ' S athletics is an important constituent of our campus sports program. In their 1953 field hockey campaign, the second at E-town, the Bluebirds gave a good account of themselves. The coeds got off to a bad start by dropping their initial contest to Shippensburg 8-1. One week later they came closer but lost 5-3 in a rematch. Millersville handed the Jaygals their third and fourth losses in games that ended in 4-1 and 3-2 tallies. The last mentioned defeat came on Homecoming Day. But the Jaygals snapped their losing skein and made a record as they won the first hockey game in E. C. his- tory by running over Linden Hall 8-0. A 6-1 decision over Albright and a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Lebanon Valley gave the coeds a balance of three wins and four defeats. The newly initiated Bluebirds were no longer fledg- lings.

Nip and tuck from the start, it was not until the final period that the Bullets managed to break through the ice to win 3-2. A mushy turf and a steady downpour supplied the setting for a 1-1 stalemate at LaSalle. Kings College of Delaware furnished a tough scrap, but the Jaymen copped a narrow 1-0 victory. Elizabethtown apparently surprised a strong Wilkes College eleven as they took an easy 5-1 win. But a few days later, Wilkes tumbled over the Jays on E. C. ' s home field to emerge the winners by a 4-1 margin. The Jaybirds gratified a strong Homecoming Day turnout to whip the Lincoln Lions 3-1. A return engage- ment with Kings of Delaware produced a 4-3 victory as George Heisey scored three of the four goals. An easy 4-0 victory over Lock Haven put the lid on the 1953 season and arranged the totals at five wins, two losses and one deadlock.

But a fine crop of untried netsmen sur- prised Coach Herr by capably filling the gaps. Novices Don Zook and Ralph Eshelman formed a doubles com- bination that stood undefeated. Al Whitacre and veteran Stan Grill also stood undefeated in doubles competition. In singles competition the Jays were equally tough with the result that they turned in an outstanding eight win, one loss record. Pausing during a match with Dickinson are the 1954 netmen Don Zook, Bill Beaston, Ralph Eshelman, George Frost, George Heisey, Don Royer, and Don Martin. LARLY April, 1953 — the Jays opened their 25th base- ball campaign with an 8-4 victory over Gettysburg. They lost to Ursinus but bounced back into the win column behind the brilliant pitching of Nels Chittum as he shut out the " Lions " 8-0. The Jaymen beat Dickinson 3-1 then dropped a 3-5 decision to Millersville. Victories over Lebanon Valley and Lycoming gave E.C. two in a row. It was in the Lycoming tilt that Paul Wechter set a season mark as he fanned 12 to win 5-2. The May Day game scheduled with Juniata was washed out just as it got under way. The outstanding game of the season was produced on May 22 when Paul Wechter lost control after allowing only four hits in 10 and a third innings. In the relief role came versatile George McCue who promptly struck out the next two batters. In the bottom half of the frame he hit a long fly ball which sent the winning run across the keystone. On the following day the Jays avenged an earlier Sus- quehanna defeat by crushing the Crusaders 10-4. Topping the season was a double header — the first in E.C. history — with Juniata. Although Paul Wechter pitched no-hit ball, the Jaymen lost the first game 3-4. In the second bill they rapped out an 8-5 victory. This gave the Jays a 9-5 balance.
