' UIETLY . . . unassumingly ... he took his place in classes pondering the thoughts extolled in lectures and texts. Efficiently . . . effectively ... he recorded college progress in the Etownian and the Conestogan. Dramatically . . . characteristically ... he portrayed the lives of great men on the stage. Faithfully . . . objectively ... he enlisted to serve in the Armed Services of the United States. In this way he became a part of all whom he had met. And so students unanimously requested that the 1955 Conestogan be dedicated to the memory of Paul Eugene Greiner. During his four years of college study, professors knew that if Paul undertook a responsibility, it would be ac- complished without fail and accomplished well. In his junior year he captured a first class honor rating for the college newspaper. The Etownian. In his senior year he repeated this notable performance for the yearbook, Conestogan. Both press ratings stressed unusual journal- istic insight and maturity of approach. Reporters who worked with him appreciated the wit of his assignment cards and the ability with which he organized the ma- terial. Students remember him spell-binding audiences with a directness and abruptness of speech which startled them into attentiveness and appreciation for his subtle humor. Sock and Buskin members found producing a play an enjoyable task when Paul had a leading role — none of the eccentricities of an artist, but a " natural " who was considerate and helpful. His performance as the " Dau- phin " in Anderson ' s " Joan of Lorraine " will never be forgotten nor his inimitable puppet caricaturing in the light comedy, " Lima Beans. " Paul revealed himself to those with whom he worked constantly. Not easily swayed by the world ' s opinions, he, with the keenness and sensitivity of a true artist, lived with the world ' s masters in books, music, and art and brought the philosophy of great men into the world of being. He entered the service on June 21, 1954, realizing that duty is a stern taskmaster, but that, as a citizen, he must put the honor of his country before his own desires. Thus, it was that upon news of his death, at the age of 22, many felt that his passing was untimely. But to those who knew him best the life of Paul Eugene Greiner was full, rich, and deep. His life was not a mere existence but actual living — serving and inspiring others and receiving in- spiration from them. p PAUL EUGENE GREINER 1932-1954 Contents Mid-Century Convocation S Faculty ....

BUT FOR AN INTEGRATED EDUCATION, one that culti- vates manliness and makes gentlemen as well as scholars, one that dis- ciplines the social affections and trains young men to faith in God, con- sideration for his fellow men, and respect for learning, America has never had the equal of her little hilltop colleges. " The small Christian liberal arts college holds a distinctive place in our world. To serve most effectively adequate equipment is necessary. Elizabethtown offers a sound foundation in her courses through well trained instructors. These opportunities need to be extended to more young people in service to a growing community. This has been a year of planning, preparation, and progress for Eliza- bethtown College. Sensing the demand for an increased enrollment the trustees and administration have begun a long-range program to meet the needs of a student body of five hundred. The 1955 Conestogan attempts to record the initial undertakings and later plans of the Ten-Year Development Program. Students will enjoy watching the progress. Alumni and friends will give loyal support to making a better Elizabethtown College — a little hill-top institution. " The Growth of the American Republic " hy Morison and Commager.

Mid-CeHtury Convocation Te ► ' ENNYSON ' S PHRASE, " the old order chang- eth, yielding place to new, " well describes the pur- pose of the Ten-Year Development Program ini- itiated this year. The construction of a women ' s residence hall, en- largement of the Gibble Science building, erection of a new Physical Education and Health building. and the remodeling of the gymnasium into a Chapel- Auditorium have been stated as the objectives of the project. Directed by K. Ezra Bucher. the program is di- vided into three phases: the Mid-Century Convoca- tion, brief area campaigns, and periodical contribu- tions over a long span of time. Mr. Bucher worked with Charles S. Dice, representative of the Marts and Lundy Company, professional counsellors, in directing the campus convocation and the area cam- paigns. " The Liberal Arts college must produce free men and women if we are to have a free society, " com- mented E. Fay Campbell in the opening session of the Mid-Century Convocation held October 22-24, Developing the theme " Educate for Service, " the speakers for each of the " Three Great Days " of the Convocation represented three types of partnerships — the professions, business, and home and church. Dr. G. D. Timmons, Dr. William P. Coleman, and George H. Ruschhaupt joined Dr. Campbell in speaking on Partners in Professions at Friday ses- sions that emphasized the Liberal Arts. Lecturers such as Dr. Ralph C. Hutchinson, Dr. Wilbur K. Mc- Kee, and J. Roger Deas in the Saturday morning session presented the business operations of a col- lege, the changing trend in business education, and methods of advertising the product. The main speaker for the Sunday topic. Partners in Living, was Dr. Elmer G. Homrighausen who traced the in- terrelationship of home and church. A political figure appeared Saturday noon as State Senator Fred P. Hare, Jr., addressed alumni at a luncheon at Aunt Sally ' s. Europe — the Far East — the U. S. — their pasts and futures were discussed by world-traveller Rob- ert H. Kazmayer in his address, " The Changing World Scene, " at the Convocation banquet. General chairman of the Convocation committee Dr. L Wayne Keller, Armstrong Cork Company control- ler, presided over the banquet. Citees seated: Harvey A. Gross. Rebekah S. SheatTer. Mary Sachs, Sara C. Shisler. and Claude R. Robins. Standing: Dr. Jay H. Eshelman, Dr. Caleb W. Bucher, Jacob N. Olweiler, Pres. A. C. Baugher. Dr Clifford E. Schott, Dr. A. G.

Stauf- fer Curry. Moderator of General Conference, Church of the Brethren, were two of the twelve alumni and friends of the college who were awarded citations for outstanding service to their communi- ties. Other citees were a civic leader, an orthodontist, a juvenile court judge, a mayor, a business woman, an elementary school principal, a college dean, a former dean of women and professor of English, a general practitioner of medicine, and a teacher in a school of dentistry. A fitting finale to the commemorative weekend was a sacred concert presented by the York Chorus Sunday evening. With the week-end activities ended, the tea tables shoved back into their normal positions, and stu- dents recovering from an abundance of information disclosed by the speakers, phase two of the Devel- opment Program, the area campaigns, began with the solicitation for capital funds in Elizabethtown and the surrounding district. Elizabethtown and the surrounding region set the pace for the succeeding campaign areas — Lancas- ter, Lebanon, Palmyra-Hershey, Harrisburg. York, and Philadelphia — by exceeding the area goal by $8,000. To attain the immediate goal of $350,000. each campaign was organized in two phases, the special gifts contacts and the general solicitations. In following a plan for installment giving pro- posed by solicitors, many contributors subscribed to the $150 Development Shares which are paid in monthly, quarterly, or annual payments. The money contributed during the campaigns is designated as capital funds for the construction of new buildings and for renovations, not for college current operating expenses. History has been in the making at Elizabethtown College in 1954-55. E-town students will be able to look back with pride and satisfaction ten years hence and say. " I remember when .... " ' 10 ADMINISTRATION MmiHistrat ' m M ' HENRY G. BUCHER, Ed.M.; Ed.D. Dean and Professor of Etlucalion K. EZRA BUCHER, B.S.; M.S. Treasurer Assistant Professor oj Business Education WILBUR E. WEAVER, B.S.: Ed.M. Business Manager t ' HE ADMINISTRATION of a small Christian college calls for dedication of life, scholastic achieve- ment, and executive ability. President Baugher in ever striving to maintain high scholastic standards extends the service of the college to the church and community and encourages each of us to prepare to serve. Dean Bucher works continuously to improve the quality of instruction. On him rests the responsibil- ity of scheduling courses, choosing our advisers, re- solving schedule conflicts, advising students, and di- recting placement. Mr. Bucher possesses that keen business judg- ment which is necessary to keep an institution run- ning in the black. Now full-time coordinator of the Development Program he plans for a greater Eliza- bethtown College. Graciousness, patience, and sincerity best exem- plify Mr. Weaver. To him goes the responsibility of managing college business activities. Without him there would be no textbooks, no meals, no light or heat, no laundry service, or no community program series. By their unselfish devotion our administration upholds the dignity of the individual, dedication of life, and the distinctiveness of the church-related college. 12 Zhe " Development Program A N INSTITUTION CANNOT STAND STILL. Like a bicycle, it will full if it does not move ahead. To move ahead Elizabethtown College has launched a Million Dollar Ten-year Development Program. Through fifty-five years, as the college grew, new buildings were erected, additional financial support was secured, and the instructional program was strengthened, so that today Elizabethtown College enjoys accreditation by the Pennsylvania Depart- ment of Education, the New York State Department of Education, and the Middle States Association. Mid-century plans for the future include new buildings, enlarging existing facilities, and extension of the campus. The new women ' s dormitory soon to be constructed will house 130 women and will provide dining room facilities for 300 students. It is to be made possible through a long term, low interest loan fr om the Housing and Home Agency, amortized through income from room rentals and annual sup- port from the Eastern and Southern Districts of Pennsylvania of the Church of the Brethren. When this building becomes available the kitchen and din- ing room in Alpha Hall will be used for a snack bar, the college store, and the post office. The Gibbel Science Building will be expanded first by the addition of a west wing to provide much needed classrooms. Later in the program an east wing will be added to provide more laboratory space. The Gibbel family is assuming leadership in provid- ing funds for this building. The present gymnasium-auditorium was built with money given by alumni and friends. The facilities are now so grossly inadequate that the Alumni Association has already taken steps to erect a new field house for health and recreation purposes. The Chapel in Rider Memorial Hall seats only half of the present student body. Con- sequently, when the new gymnasium becomes available the present auditorium-gymnasium will be converted into a chapel-auditorium. The college architect estimates that this can be done effectively by installing permanent seats and a ceiling, by adding an appropriate entrance and tower, and by making several minor alterations. A dormitory for 100 men is also contemplated although at this time no definite plans have been made for it. The campus, enlarged by the purchase of a three acre tract of land to the southwest, is now contiguous to the plot on which the new Elizabethtown Church of the Brethren is rising. Negotiations are in process for a second tract of approximately five acres located south of the tennis courts. This will provide an excellent area for the new men ' s dormitory or as an addition to the athletic field. Elizabethtown College is located in one of the most prosperous areas of the United States. It is my firm conviction that the Alumni of the College, the Church of the Breth- ren, the community of Elizabethtown, and industry and friends in this rich southeastern section of Pennsylvania are easily able and are willing to support the College in this Mil- lion Dollar Ten-year Development Program for a Greater Elizabethtown College.

The door to the Student Activities Office is always open and Deans Greene and Hack- man are ready to guide us through our problems. They are concerned for us — for our scholastic progress, our health, our problems large and small, and they have a deep understanding of the things which are so important to us in college years. Miss Engle, registrar, plays an integral part in keeping our scholastic records. From change of course to official transcript she helps with our academic ratings. Mr. Espenshade spends many hours traveling through Pennsylvania and sur- rounding areas meeting prospective col- lege students. Through lectures and publi- cations he presents the advantages of our school. These four together with Dean Bucher, constitute the Committees on Admissions and Counseling. Upon them rests the chal- lenging responsibility of choosing the young men and women who are to become Eliza- bethtown College. EMMA R. ENGLE, A.B. Registrar EBY ESPENSHADE, B.S.; M.Ed. Director of Admissions Alumni Secretary 14 faculty x R. SCHLOSSER ' S DYNAMIC interpretation of literature. Professor Gray ' s stimulating lectures, Miss Martin ' s humble prayer at the beginning of each class period. Dr. Apgar ' s sly sense of humor — these are lasting impressions we get from living on the campus and meeting our faculty in the college community. Some times these impressions become one-sided as we fail to appreciate the service these dedicated men and women give to the community and to their families. They, too, have a wide variety of interests, hobbies, and backgrounds. Scholastic activities inevitably play a large part in their pro- grams. At present Professors Reuning, Rudwick, Newall, and Rouse are working on their Ph.D. dissertations. Dr. Apgar is doing research in Ecology and Professor Gray is making an economic study of Elizabethtown. Professor Byerly is doing graduate work in theology and preparing a lecture for the annual conference of the Church of the Brethren in June. Professional organizations, too, are part of the lives of these men and women. The American Association for the Advancement of Science, National Association of Cost accountants, American Mathematical Society, National Education Association, National Music Educators Association, Pennsylvania Library Association, American Association of University Women, National Office Man- agement Association, Eastern Business Teachers Association, American Association of University Professors, and National As- sociation of Biblical Instructors are representative of the groups to which our teachers belong.

He, too, holds evangelistic meetings and Bible In- stitutes. Others have appeared before clubs, on panels, and in churches; and most of them, through their inspiring chapel talks, have helped us become better stu- dents, citizens, and Christians. IRA R.

Professor Bitting is the first flutist with the Harris- burg Symphony Orchestra and plays with several local bands. He also has the most unusual hobby of farming Christmas trees. Miss Ulmer spends her summers directing water shows and she enjoys ballet swim- ming. The theater holds the interest of sev- eral — Professor Rudwick is an amateur play writer. Professor Rouse has worked with stage lighting for many years, and the Heilmans enjoy relaxing with the finished product of writer, director, cast. The Heil- mans and Meyers are gardening enthusi- asts, while Professor Custer is an amateur radio fan. The Apgars look forward to camping trips and Mrs. Apgar likes to show dogs. Professor Byerly is a camper, too, and puts his experience to good use in the summer when he directs Camp Swa- tara. ROBERT H. NEWALL, A.B.; A.M. Instructor in English WILHELM REUNING, B.S.; M.S.

Today, four years later, these " youngsters " have passed through quite a metamorphosis.

Elementary Education Semrs 1955 Our senior year h as brought with it a knowl- edge of the value of the experiences of the last four years — of the growth that has occurred — of the knowledge we have gained — of the fun we have had learning to live and work together. And creating quite an exciting climax has been the initiation of the college Ten- Year De- velopment Program. Seniors have known am- bivalent feelings this year — very proud of be- ing members of the senior class during such an important year — and yet we fee! more than a tinge of reluctance to leave — just when E. C. is taking such tremendous strides forward! In the area of student government our class contributed J ay wood Brubaker as president of the Student Association, while seniors Don Al- bright, Pat Kratz, and Nancy Hoffman served as vice president, secretary, and treasurer of the Senate, respectively. Additional senior senators were Don Fogelsanger, George Heisey, and Jim Miller. Hazel Crankshaw and Paul Grubb were chosen for membership on the Committees on Women ' s Affairs and Men ' s Affairs, respec- tively. f i ' , MARILYN DEPPE Lebanon, Penna. B.S. Business Education 1.

Eta Gamma Kappa; Ray Thompson, FTA; George Heisey, Science Club; and Harvey Jacobs, Varsity E. Not limiting our efforts to leadership on campus, however, many of us had practical ex- perience in preparing for our future careers. Take our student teachers, for instance. Twenty-five of us spent the second eight weeks of the first semester in actual classroom situa- tions — testing all our child psychology and ed- ucational theories on real, live youngsters. We learned that teaching has more than its share of headaches, but the rewards of working with children, the ji eeing a child achieve, re- duce the mountainous problems to minute pro- portions.

Ken Franklin, Carl Geary, Henry Kreider, and Walt Schell had a taste of the real thing too, in preaching sermons in various churches and conducting religious affairs on campus. Fivp of our number completed requirements for degrees during the first semester. Marilyn Deppe, Mrs. Richmond Myers, George Kanoff, and Richard McGee have already acquired po- sitions in business or the teaching profession. Don Zook is in Northern Rhodesia, Africa, serving in a Brethren in Christ mission office. Several of our group completed two or three years of study to begin work in offices or to continue study in hospital laboratories. Carlot- ica Chegwin, Pat Hess, Peggy Hicks Shaffer, and Lois McMinn Kauffman after two years received certificates in secretarial science. Dor- othy Piper completed a two-year pre-nursing course and Arlene Reinhold Zeigler finished two years to continue hospi tal study as a labora- tory technician. Cynthia Grill, Joyce Lerew, and Ursula Neidhardt. as juniors, were certificated in medical technology. 28 Comprising half of the popular college men ' s quartet were Paul Rice and Paul Grubb. The foursome gained wide " notoriety " with their uproarious novelty numbers. Senior songsters in the A Cappella Choir were Nancy Hoffman, Paul Grubb. and Paul Rice. Baritone Paul Rice frequented the solo spotlight in various campus musical events and choir concerts. Playing a vital role in campus publications was Hazel Crankshaw. editor of the Conesto- gan. Senior yearbook staff members included Nancy Hoffman, Pat Kratz, and Don Zook, bus- iness manager. Lending journalistic talents to the Etownian staff were Nancy Hoffman, assist- ant editor, Pat Kratz and Marigrace Bucher, re- porters. We invaded the field of dramatics too. Jean Diehl, Edythe Edwards, Nancy Hoffman. Hazel Knappenberger. and Sam Williams were all ac- tive Sock and Buskin members or neophytes. NANCY HOFFMAN Reading, Penna. B.S.

Our practical learning e.xperiences were supplemented by the mind-stretching of Philosophy and Ethics classes, in a consideration of the intangible and the abstract. Although a proportionately high number of our class are Dean ' s list frequenters, our pride does not lie exclusively in our scholars. Seniors smiled somewhat indulgently on May 7 when gracing the May Day platform as the ninth an- nual Queen of the May was Pat Kratz, while Nancy Hoffman was the chosen maid of honor.

And we seniors, also, boast the only set of twins on campus. Bill and George Heisey, both four-year men, will enter the medical profession as medical doctor and veterinarian. Other science majors planning careers as chemists or biologists are Don Albright, Robert Bielo. and Jim Miller. Sam Dock will enter the field of electronic engineering. RUTH OLDHAM Fishertown, Penna. B.S. Science PAUL RICE Zullinger, Penna. A.B. Liberal Arts 32 Edythe Edwards is planning a career as a so- cial worker, and Grace Mutzabaugh and Henry Kreider are prospective missionaries. Seven of us plan to invade the business world. Of those of us entering education, fifteen will teach in elementary schools, and ten in second- ary schools. As we leave Elizabethtown College, each of us to assume a niche in the complex picture of which we are a part, our desire is that we may continue to grow and mature in this art of liv- ing and learning, that as products of E. C. we may be bearers of light in an ever-darkening world, just as our Alma Mater is even now striking her roots deeper and trimming her lamps to burn brighter. IRVIN WILLIAMS Middletown, Penna. A.B.

Class of J 956 h T WAS REMARKABLE coincidence which bound together the hves of 106 youths of diverse backgrounds, interests, and personalties in their choice of Eliza- bethtown College and the Class of 1956. Abandoned long since is our freshman nostalgia and the gullible " high school sen- iors-grown up " enthusiasm which marked our first year on campus. ' Gone, too, are sophomore wisdom and frolic. That roguish desire to harass freshmen in initiation we could easily bequeath to the Class of 1957. Now we look upon the treatment of new- comers to campus with a mingled sense of concern and amusement. We are well represented in the student government organizations. Bruce Smith served as a senator, while William Bechtel. Mel Longenecker, Dick Stine, and Tyler Trimmer held four of the si, Committee on Men ' s Affairs positions. Bill served as presi- dent of the group and Mel served as secre- tary. The Committee on Women ' s Affairs looked to junior leadership, too. Carol Berry, president, Dorothy Stotz, secretary, Gwen Miller and Pat Minnich formed the nucleus of the committee which handled the women ' s program activities — Big and Lit- tle Sister project, dormitory vespers, teas. parties, and house elections. LUCY BAUGHER Aspers. Penna. WILLIAM BECHTEL East Berlin. Penna. EVELYN BELL Palmyra, Penna. CAROL BERRY Manheim, Penna. 36 Much athletic ability was concentrated in our class. Carol Berry was our contribu- tion to the hockey team; Jim Baugher. Ralph Moyer, Mel Longenecker. Dick Stine, Jack Ferich, Art Werner, and Charlie Derk saw action on the soccer field. We responded to the basketball season with pep and enthusiasm. Dick Stine made headlines as his scoring average ran high, and Mel Longenecker and Jack Ferich pro- duced teamwork which was necessary to accumulate the fine record of the 1954-55 Blue Jay season. Jessie Martin and Marie Kinney represented us on the Jay-gal ' s basketball team. Art Werner held a position on the newly organized wrestling team, and several of us stuck to rugged training pro- grams for spring athletics. BROOKE BUTTERWICK SellersviUe, Penna.

Class of 1956 Many of us are interested in religious activities on the campus and in our own churches. John Stoner was treasurer of the S. C. A. and most of us were members of this group. Eta Gamma Kappa, the min- isterial fellowship, counts a number of Juniors in its membership. Mary Dilling. Marilyn Longenecker, Evelyn Bell, and Ralph Moyer gave much of their time to providing music on deputation assignments. The Brethren Student Christian Association, which includes all the Brethren Colleges in the United States, was united under the leadership of Jay Gibble. Jay was responsible for the Fall convention held by the national group on our campus during Thanksgiving vacation. Jack Byers served the C.B.Y.F. as president during the year. JAY GIBBLE Bethel; Penna. PAUL HOFFMAN William: town. Penna. Carol Berry was always in demand for her artistic displays. The interesting library bulletin boards and the Conestogan art work are evidences of her talent.

We were active in musi- cal groups. Evelyn Bell. Mary Dilling. Pat Minnich, Jay Gibble. Charles Cobaugh, Ralph Meyer, and Jack Byers were A Cappela Choir members. We sang in the Chapel Choir, quartets, community chorus, and ensembles and were also members of the band. SUN KYUNG KIM Seoul, Korea MARIE KINNEY High Bridge. N. J. Melodie Mem ' ries was the highlight of our class activities this year. Hard work, minute planning, and lengthy rehearsals gave us experience in this thing called show business. We struggled to get the right costumes, the proper lighting, and the best in pub- licity for our variety show. Friday evening. February 18, was our big night. Virtually every class member had part in the production in some form or another and we were pleased with the final results. Much credit goes to our planning committee — Dolly Longenecker, chairman.

Janet Trimmer, Lucy Baugher, Mary Dilling, Bob Fans, Jay Gib- ble, Loretta Kline, and Sylvia Kugler were active members. We were not short on journalistic talent, either. The Etownian was edited by Loretta Kline. Juniors assisting her in bringing the latest campus news to the student body were Owen Miller and Janet Varner. In February Owen interviewed Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt on a WGAL-TV Junior Press Conference. Immediately after the final curtain on Melodic Mem ' ries we began planning for the annual Junior-Senior Banquet. We en- tertained the Class of 1955 at the Harris- burg Civic Club on Friday evening. May 13. Rustling formals, fragrant corsages, the view of the Susquehanna from the garden, good food — all played a part in making our .send-off of the Seniors one always to be remembered.

The German Club was headed by Robert Faus and Sylvia Kugler served as the club ' s secretary. We welcomed Ken Wittle, Rita Stoner, Carl Crum. Jesse Newcomer, and Glen Furman into our class at the beginning of the second semester. Ken returned to school after serving in the U.S. Army; Rita, Carl, Jesse, and Glen were transferees from other colleges. Charles Orbank was president of the Political Science Club and Bill Bechtel was chairman of the Elizabethtown delegation attending the ICG conven- ing in Harrisburg.

Library assistants included Brooke Butterwick, Sally Knep- per, and Carol Berry. Zoe Proctor and Don Barr served as assistants in the chemistry laboratories. Others received experience on ofT-campus jobs — clerks, secretaries, waitresses, and cashiers. Carol Berry and Janet Earhart represented us in the May Court. We all found ourselves busy on May 7 singing in the choir, playing with the orchestra, helping to produce the Sock and Buskin program, ushering, playing tennis or baseball. Campus elections put into office many Juniors who would soon be assuming senior responsibilities. William Bechtel was elected president of the Student Association and took office April J 5 along with sen- ators and representatives on the Committees of Men ' s and Women ' s Affairs. Carole Alexander. Carol Berry. Mary Dilling. and Gwen Lowe finished their college requirements and will enter hospitals to complete their fourth year before receiving a B.S. degree in medical technology. We are now ready to become seniors. The last three years have given us opportunity for leadership, responsibility, and management. These opportunities have served to mature us and to prepare us for our important senior year. 42 JUNIORS NOT PICTURED CARL CRUM PURCELL McKAMEY Hershey, Penna.

Our sophomore year was one of exhila- ration, discovering that we are finally among the col- lege crowd with the " gruelling grind " of freshman days safely behind us. How we gloated as the fresh- men quivered and shook when we approached full of dignity with the latest initiation rules! How sweet was revenge when, contrary to all precedent, we won the annual lug-of-war with the unlucky freshman girls! Bedlam reigned that Saturday as one by one freshmen tasted the water of Lake Placida. But too soon the frivolity of Fall passed. We wel- comed the Class of 1958 into the college family and then settled down for a long winter of concentrated study. And study we did! The library was never lacking the presence of a sophomore. Elementary ' education majors were dabbling in water colors and making absurd little papier mache figurines. Science majors were peering into diminutive test tubes at even more diminutive precipitates and at the same time trying to manipulate a slide rule in a feverish rush to meet the deadline for a determination. Bus- iness students pored over pages of credits, deficits, withholding, and assessments, trying to discover where-in-the-world that $3.85 error came from. RODNEY BERKLEY Johnstown, Penna.

The new pep band was initiated and supported mainly by sophs. Pete Thompson, Marie Hoover, Carl Spease, Don Willoughby. and Charles Weaver were the nucleus of the band. The spring sports did not suffer from an absence of sophomore enthusiasm as under warm spring sunshine our fellows trained to bring to our Alma Mater the very best baseball and tennis teams. On the fine arts side of extra-curricular activities, we filled out the ranks of many clubs. Eta Gamma Kappa showed a large percentage of sophomore membership as did the L. S. A. The Political Science Club sent delegations including several of our class members to the L C. G. Conference. Sophomores are to be found in music, too. We are noted for vocal capacity, not only in the cheering section at home games but also in a more melodious manner as we blended our voices in the college choirs and quartets. Soloists Gloria Keller. Ruthanne But- terbaugh, and Gloria Gladfelter contributed to stu- dent worship services. The music department relied upon a sophomore indispensable as both vocalist and accompanist. Don Golden is an accomplished pianist and organist. He even found time to fill in as organist at Grace Lutheran Church, Lancaster. JOANNE EVANS Lancaster. Pa LAYTON FIRENG Wayne, Penna. r CHARMAINE GENTZLER York. Penna. FRANCIS HECK Erial, N. J.

And, of course, we naturally undertook a big schedule of activities. Our officers. Bob Knappenber- ger, Glenn Blxler, Sandy Fitzkee. and Jim Baugher — president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer — noticed our restlessness. Soon class meetings were held and we were well on our way to planning a Christmas party. It was a sparkling, well-received climax to the campus Christmas festivities, lacking only in the " white stuff " on the ground outside to make it complete. CAROL MOOSE Elizabethtown, Penna.

Christmas was even more important to Lois Mumma and Harold Wenger who were married on Christmas Eve. In fact, Cupid was so busy that a certain young man promptly proposed to the maid- of-honor and Fern Diehl and Lloyd Swope were of- ficially engaged. To make the holiday season even more romantic, Shirley Eby became engaged as did Rodney Berkley. Vive I ' amour! The Class of 1957 was well represented on all sports teams. On the distaff side, the Jay Gals on the hockey field were dependent on sophomore con- tributors Joanne Evans, Sandy Fitzkee, Leah Dan- kel, Verna Weaver, and Shirley Prange. Joanne Evans, Sandy Fitzkee, Gladys Shirk, Audrey Sprenkle, Wanda Sprow, Verna Weaver, and Hazel Yoder saw action on the basketball court. John Fisher, William Stoneback, Kenneth Miller, and Jack Currie got their shins bruised on the soccer field and Kenneth Miller, Gary Fleming, and Al- berto Zayas pinned and were pinned on the wrestling mats. Robert Blessing, Robert Goudie, Lou Lauria, Sal Paone, Pat Rafter, Bob Wert, and Charlie Adams were our basketball support. To relieve the tensions of mid-year exams, we planned a splash party early in the New Year. An added attraction to the ordinary swimming party was a solo-in-aquatics performed by Miss June Ul- mer, physical education instructor. " Exams, exams, darken not my door again " we cried with relief as the second semester began. There- by also began a mad rush to crowd the rest of the year before June. So many activities demanding our participation were popping up to add to the confus- ion of term papers and projects. Our May Day at- tendants, Doris Kipp and Audrey Sprenkle were chosen to attend Queen Patricia Kratz. Student elec- tions found us campaigning with professional vigor with the expected results. 51 Class of 1957 All the while, some of us found campus jobs to help ourselves finan- cially. Gloria Keller and Audrey Sprenkle served as assistants in their dormitories. Nancy Swanson and Bob Hoffman combined business with pleasure as laboratory assistants in their major fields, chemistry and biology respectively. Others manned the library desk, served in the din- ing hall, or did routine campus jobs. This was the last year for the two-year students in our class. Shirley Eby received her certificate in medical technology. The medical secre- taries finishing their curriculum include Frances Cope. Gladys Shirk, Dorothy Anderson, Fern Diehl, and Doris Kipp. Recipients of the sec- retarial certificates were Gladys Hixon, Janice Brisbin, Leah Dankel, Shirley Garrett, Gloria Gladfelter, Nancy Groff, and Carol Moose. Joan LeVan. Cassandra Fitzkee, and Joanne Evans will enter schools of nursing next fall. Now we are looking forward to becoming upper-classmen and plan to carry over our enthusiasm and pep into our remaining two years at E. C. ALBERT ROGERS Norristown, Penna.

Class of J 95 8 JSi ' UBBLING WITH EAGERNESS and ex- pectation, yet hesitating to go forward, we stopped at the big iron gate of EUzabethtown College. Before us lay the opportunity for which we had waited. Some of us were " fresh out " of the glitter and glamor days of high school where we were all kings and queens and were entering a new life — one as meek and humble freshmen. As we peered beyond the gate, we saw lying before us and forming a most favorable im- pression, the lovely campus with its rolling hills, velvety green lawns, stately trees, lowly dog- woods already beginning to show signs of au- tumn scarlet, and a peaceful lake surrounded by fragrant pines. Even the quiet, dignified build- ings seemed to say " Welcome. " The Class of ' 58 enrolled as the second largest in the history of the college with one hundred and sixty-five students of whom sixty-one are commuters. Administration and faculty were introduced to the new students at a tea under the Elm on Sunday, September 12. Soon the fun was for- gotten as the next day everyone settled down to the task of taking examinations which would determine general achievement in English, So- cial Studies, mathematics, and science. Deans Greene and Hackman played the per- fect hosts at the Deans " Party. Then, following another day of tests, came square dancing and movies. Forms, forms, and more forms! That was registration day as advisers sat down to as- sist perplexed students arrange their schedules. A hike and vesper service concluded that day ' s activities. 56 The formal faculty reception followed a tour of the extensive Masonic Homes grounds with their Gothic-Georgian buildings, formal gar- dens, and orchards. Other highlights of Fresh- man Week were the Elizabethtown Kiwanis Farm Fair and the football game between the Bears of Elizabethtown High School and the Manheim Township Blue Streaks on the high school field. Saturday we enjoyed a picnic at Mount Pisgah, newest State Park, and in the evening listened to the carillon of Arthur Lynds Bigelow. Sunday we were in the pews of many Elizabethtown churches. During Silly Day. freshmen donned not only their " dainty dinks ' " and " petite?? placards " but also added to their wardrobes pants and shirts worn inside out and backward with long ties in the front and bow-ties in the back. Girls wore skirts and blouses inside out and parted their hair in the middle. So far as make-up was con- cerned, tables were turned. Boys wore lipstick accompanied by atrocious looking, long, dang- ling earrings, while the girls wore no make-up or jewelry. OfT, too, went beloved and hallowed class rings. From the neck up, Wilbur Smith and Jim Schell could have made " dah-ling " addi- tions to the female set, while Larry Seiders and Ken Stem learned to respect the lip-stick laws. Lloyd Shim ' s candid remark on the whole af- fair; " Oh, I theenk eet ees so funnee! " The " Freshman Follies " provided an outlet for our, as of yet, undeveloped talent. Featured were John Hollinger ' s skit on " The Ball That Casey Hit, " with Jim Chase as Casey, Doc Blackwell as the umpire and " Dr. Rudolph ' s Ex- periment, " starring Jerry Rudolph. Daisette Gebhart and friends presented, with the aid of several sheets, a version of a date in a jalopy. Solo numbers included Alan Barrick. Ken By- erly, and Gary Kim. A duet with Dick Dennis and Elsa Hoener and " The Freshman Theme Song " written by Evelyn Preston and sung by a group of girls were additional program num- bers.

John Burkhart. Dorothy Downs, Bonnie Gibble, Andrew Knapp. and Nancy Burke meet in the laboratory to begin work on their first lab assignment of their first semester in college. Everyone was ably trained by Professor Fisher in singing the revered strains of " We hail thee. Alma Mater dear. " The tug-of-war. Convocatio n weekend, proved a highly successful venture as the fresh- man boys succeeded in dunking the sophs twice out of three tries. However, the girls were not so fortunate, and they kept wearing those " ac- cursed " dinks until the Thanksgiving vacation. The Sock and Buskin Club decided to at- tempt to bring out the thespian in us and we successfully presented three one-act plays, star- ring an all-freshman cast. Paul Shelley ' s " beasted " combination of cockney and Oxford English was combined with Kitty Swigart ' s Scot- tish " begorra " in Sir James M. Barrie ' s " The Old Lady Shows Her Medals. " while Bim Mow- rer and Ruth Anne Yeager added romance to " Write Me a Love Scene. " The other play, " Trees of His Father, " featured Jim Loudy and Daisette Gebhart in leading roles. Other dra- matists included: Barbara Eckert, Ruth Ann Longenecker, Donna Lou Nell, Barbara Noecker, Nancy Weibly, Ed Ankeny, Wilbur Smith, and Bob Swope. Contributing much to the successful season of the basketball Blue Jays were Jim Sarbaugh and Jim Chase on the varsity and Alan Bar- rick, Carlin Brightbill. Gene Bucher. Sid Jones, Curt Reiber. Bruce Wohnsiedler, and Wilbert King on the junior varsity squad. To the wrest- ling squad of Coach Byerly, the class donated John HoUinger, Don Witman, Frankie Kueh- ner, George Gerlach, and Larry Seiders. Gene Bucher and George Gerlach added zest to the soccer team. 58 Riglii: Time out for a snack! Judith Kandle, Doris Melhorn.

Barbara Eckert, Ruth Anne Longenecker, Yvonne Bru- baker, Deloris Bolze, Ruth Anne Yeager, Nancy Enders, and Daisette Gebhart were Frosh ad- ditions to the hockey squad. We contributed Ruth Ann Longenecker. Kitty Swigart. Deloris Bolze. Audrey Kuder, Barbara Eckert. Linda Mumma, Mary Ann Gettel, Pat Shope, Peg Mills, Barbara Noecker, Rachel Keller, Alice Kretzing, Nancy Marsteller and Betty Landes to the varsity and junior varsity basketball teams. We did our share to cheer the men ' s team on through the season. Lenora Shenk and Audrey Kuder were varsity cheerleaders and Judy Kandle, Lois Tintle, Joan Birdsall, and Betty Landes were out leading the group of junior varsity fans. We developed school spirit and pep through- out the class. Those of us who were not mem- bers of the teams used our cars as " buses " to transport schoolmates to the away games. Ar- tistically inclined Jim Loudy, Barbara Eckert, Joan Brady, and Donna Lou Nell helped create more school spirit by placing banners and streamers of blue and gray at strategic points over the campus and in the gymnasium. Music, a great asset to the school, enjoys the contributions of Gail Deimler. Shirley Kocheu- darfer, Esther Hershman. Elsa Hoener. Bever- ly Morris, Shirley Hoffman. Elaine Holsinger, Rosalie Longenecker, Eileen Brouse, Dick Em- enheiser, Jim Schell, Warren Bates, Wilbur Smith, and Ross Eshelman.

Sock and Buskin scenery and signs and announce- ments over the campus bore their signatures. We were a group of workers. Some of us worked on the campus as waitresses or as members of the office staff. We were off campus workers as well. Some worked in town while others of our number went home weekends to continue em.ployment there. We represent fourteen different denomina- tions and are active in religious activities on the campus. Ed Ankeny, Paul Hagenberger, Ken Martin. Jerry Rudolph, Jim Schell. and Wilbur Smith are pre-theological students. Our varied interests reflect in our curricu- lum choices. Forty-one of us are enrolled in business administration: seven in secretarial science, and three in secretarial courses. Thir- teen of our girls will become medical secre- taries while nine will become medical technolo- gists. We are well represented in the field of education; twenty-eight of us are enrolled in the elementary education curriculum and twelve are studying for a degree in secondary education. Forty of us are taking work in the Liberal .Arts field. Forestry claims three of us. while nursing has five, and the pre-dental and engineering courses each have one. The Freshman Class includes two Korean students. Lloyd Shim and Gary Kim. States rep- resented are: Pennsylvania. New Jersey, Mary- land, New York. Florida, and the District of Columbia.

Class of 195$ Coming from many high schools — large and small — we were participants in activities which will help us do our share in promoting high standards in scholarship and extra curricular work here at E. C. Many of us were valedic- torians and salutatorians of our classes and members of honor societies. We have several year-book editors among us plus some jour- nalists. Nancy Marsteller was chosen Pennsyl- vania Peach Queen during the summer of 1954. Richard Dennis was made a Future Farmer. Audrey Kilhefner and Esther Hersh- man attended State Forensic Meets. We served as high school class officers. Jim Chase has con- tinued his work as high school class president by becoming the first president of the Class of 1958.

Following the coronation the A Cappella Choir presented the cantata, " Old Plantation Days, " while students pantomimed the musical story. The afternoon ' s activities included a base- ball game with Lebanon Valley, a Sock Buskin presentation, and a student organ re- cital. The day ' s program concluded with a Light Opera Festival presented by Jean Carlton, so- prano, and Norman Farrow, baritone. 68 Zhe J 95 5 May Court In March the May Court posed before the Alpha Uving room fireplace for their first group picture.

Accompanying the queen and her court in the stately processional were John Espenshade. bearing the crown, and flower girls Carol Ann Green and Pamela Herr. Innovations this year were a group of Swedish folk dances and a tumbling act, under the direction of Miss June Ulmer. " Lincoln Lyrics, " a choral suite composed of the poems of Edwin Markham set to music by George Frederick Millay, was presented by the A Cappella Choir, Professor Nevin W. Fisher conducting. The coronation presentation featured interpretative danc- ing and the dramatization of the life of Lincoln. Planned especially for visiting children, the fairy tale, " Goldilocks and the Three Bears, " was drama- tized by Sock and Buskin. Organ students appeared in a recital scheduled for the hour preceding the evening program. Focusing the spotlight on local talent, the Faculty Music Department, in cooperation with advanced music students, presented a program of vocal and instrumental music for the evening entertainment. 69 President A.

Members not pictured were Donald Albright, vice president, and Henry Hoerner. Student government Government of the people, by the people, and for the people " . . . Rooted in this guiding democratic prin- ciple are the three student-elected governing bodies on campus. The Student Senate functions to serve the student body as the general over-all governing agency of the campus. Among the duties of the Senate are: to work in cooperation with faculty, administration, and students for the general welfare of the student body, to provide social activities for the students, and to conduct all campus elections. The Committee on Women ' s Affairs deals with the more specific problems of the women students — in dormi- tory, on campus, and in social events. The Committee on Men ' s Affairs serves in a like capacity for the men stu- dents and acts as the majority voice in helping solve their problems. Together these three government agen- cies are the voice of the students in campus and college life. Joanne Evans. Hazel Crankshaw, Carol Berry, president, Patricia Minnich, Gwen Miller, and Dorothy Stotz, secretary, comprised the Committee on Women ' s Affairs. Meeting for a session of the Committee on Men ' s Affairs are William Stoneback, William Bechtel, president, Richard Stine, and Melvin Longenecker, secretary.

Zc O STUDENTS DISTINGUISHED by exacting participation in the extra-mural program of the col- lege, the Activities E is presented as a symbol of achievement, loyalty, and service. This system was originated two years ago to pro- vide recognition for students outstanding in repre- senting the college beyond the sphere of campus- activity. The Faculty Committee on Awards confers the Activities E in the areas of music, political science, publications, and religious activities. The key is awarded to any student who acquires two certificates in any one field. To be eligible for a certificate in music, two years of satisfactory membership in the A Cappella Choir are necessary. Service in the college men ' s and wom- en ' s quartets also amass credit for certification. Political science awards are given for participation in the annual Intercollegiate Conferences on Gov- ernment, in International Relations Club confer- ences and adequate preparations for these meetings. In the area of publications, a certificate of recog- nition will be given to a student serving for a year on the Etownian staff as assistant editor, sports edi- tor, or news editor. One year of work on the Cones- togan commensurate to the above is the requirement of the contributor for a certificate. Editors are awarded the Activities E for one year of service. Religious activities awards are presented to stu- dents conducting deputations to churches. Credit is given to persons performing the duties of worship assistant, minister, choral director, or musician. Serving as president of the Student Christian Associ- ation or Eta Gamma Kappa or contributing signifi- cant leadership over a two-year period also merits a certificate. Winners of the .Activities E in music are Donald Golden, at the piano; Marilyn Longenecker, Ralph Moyer. Ruthanne Butterbaugh. Mary Dilling, Pete Thompson. Paul Grubb. and Nancy Hoffman. Zhe StowHian A SURVEY OF THE Activities calendar for news items, those three-by-five assign- ment cards that can bring such headaches to reporters, appointments to interview profs and students, a rush to get copy in by that all important deadline, the thrill of seeing the finished paper — all go into the making of a college newspaper. Here those with a drop of printer ' s ink in their blood can find a use for their talents and journalism tyros learn the hard way — by actual experience in writing. The reporter holds a responsible posi- tion. He is not announcing events to just 400 students; he is not only sharing expe- riences with other colleges but he is also heralding and recording events for pos- terity. Each month — September to May — The Etownian is sent into the homes of 3000 alumni living in forty-four states and on five continents. The newspaper itself covers coming events, current problems, critical reviews, and sports. It is with pride that we try to uphold the high standards of journalism set previously.

From September to April the Stu- dent Activities Oflice becomes the editorial center as the book comes to life for another year. It is a rapid pace — one of photog- raphy schedules, advertising campaigns, writing, designing, and dreaded deadlines. The Conestogan, a publication of the Student Association, is financed by the ac- tivity fee and by the advertising campaign which is held first semester. Campus elec- tions decide who shall serve as editor and business manager. Student volunteers help where needed and the reward for all is the " oohs " and " ahs " which are heard on dis- tribution day.

Blending voices in the creation of harmony, the a cappella choir. obser ing its twentieth anniver- sary ' as an Elizabethtown College institution, brought inspiration to thousands of listeners. Under the direction of Professor Nevin W. Fisher, the forty voice choir presented more than thirty con- certs this season in churches and high schools throughout Pennsylvania. Marking an initial appearance for any E.C. A Cappella Choir was a fifteen-minute concert in min- iature in Harrisburg ' s Zembo Mosque on February 23. Rustic Fairmount Park, in Philadelphia wit- nessed another choir presentation in observance of the raising of a memorial on the site of the first Church of the Brethren baptism in .America in the year 1723. Combining labors and talents in one concerted effort, the hardworking group perennially finds sat- isfaction in functioning as a unit, with each singer lending essential cooperation in the precision tim- ing and careful tone production synonymous with a cappella choir s inging. The extension of the college Easter recess facil- itated another new procedure for the choir; the singers utilized five days of their ten-day vacation to tour western Pennsylvania, presenting seven sac- red concerts in Churches of the Brethren and ap- pearing in several high schools to present secular programs. Featured as outstanding numbers in the sacred concert were " The Almighty, " by Franz Schubert, and " Preludes to Eternity, " by Franz Liszt, the text of which is based upon Lamartine ' s Meditations Poetiques. Also winning strong audience response were the Negro spirituals, including the wistful " Listen to the Lambs, " R. Nathaniel Dett; and " Dark Water, " Will James. Especially popular for their fascinating rhythm were " Ain-a That Good News? " , by William L. Dawson, and " I ' m In His Care " arranged by Arthur E. Ward. The fun of traveling and eating together . . . the thrill of singing together . . . the tenderness deep down inside when a singer notices the tear trickling down the cheek of the little old lady in the front pew ... the satisfaction of a concert well given . . . the smiles of appreciation on the faces of listeners — all these bring the singers a feeling of empathy and oneness and the reward that such sharing brings.

Ralph Moyer, Peter Thompson, and Paul Rice. r. ' HROUGHOUT the year the college quartets maintain a heavy program schedule. As individual quartets, the men and women appear at college func- tions, community programs, and provide music for deputation work. At times they combine and by adding a double quartet to their group they become an ensemble. Every Monday evening under the direction of Galen Herr, the band rehearses anything from jazz to overtures. They meet for the enjoyment and re- laxation which music offers and to prepare for the spring music festival. The pep band consisted of regular band personnel who added zest and " bed- lam " to home games. Dickinson College musicians lend talents to the Elizabethtown band under the direction of Galen Herr in efforts to spur on the Bluejay cagers in their tussle with Lebanon Valley at the Her- shey Arena. 80 C HE MUSIC FROM THE ORCHESTRA ceased. The auditorium lights flickered, dimmed, and were then turned off by some unseen hand, leaving the audience in darkness broken only by the multi-col- ored footlights casting weird shadows on the heavy blue curtains. The stage was set and illuminated — the curtains drawn. This familiar chain of actions has been the prelude for many Sock and Buskin presen- tations. The Sock and Buskin, so-named for the Greek symbols of the comedy and tragedy, presents several dramatizations each year for the enlightenment and entertainment of the students and community. The fall season of 1954 was a busy one for Sock and Buskin members and neophytes. During Fresh- man Orientation Week, an original skit was given to inform the new students of the many pitfalls of college life. In October a new experiment was tried. Upperclassmen directed plays in which the entire cast consisted of freshmen. " Trees of His Father " , A scene from the March 18 and 19 production, " The Impor- tance of Being Earnest. " Shirley McCloskey as Lady Bracknell chides Doris Welch and Sam Williams playing the roles of Cecily Cardevv and Algernon Moncrieff. Left: Sock and Buskiners try out the new make-up kit. Janet Trimmer reads instructions as Sylvia Kugler and Doris Welch make up Patricia Minnich. Nancy Hoffman concentrates on aging Jack Byers. Sock afid uskiM " The Old Woman Shows Her Medals " and " Write Me a Love Scene " were the three plays produced successfully. One already established tradition is that of a " Night of One Act Plays. " Produced each year, these plays are student-directed with casts chosen from the entire student body. " Mooncalf Mugford " . " The Rec- tor " , and " The Valiant " were all received with over- whelming acclaim. For some time it has been the custom of " the Sock and Buskin to present a play the night before Christ- mas vacation. This year, Oscar Wilde ' s " The Long Christmas Dinner " was given thereby ending the dra- matic performance for the first semester. On March 18 and 19, a cast made up of members from all the classes gave " The Importance of Being Earnest. " To become a member of the Sock and Buskin, neophytes must earn twenty-five points, five of which must be in acting and five in back stage work. Pro- fessor Robert Newall was adviser to the club this season and Patricia Minnich was president. Other officers were Nancy Hoffman, vice president. Doris Welch, secretary, and John Byers, treasurer. 81 Jay Gibble. president of the Brethren Student Christian Association Kdigious j tS IF IN obedience to God " s command, " Neglect not the assemblying of yourselves together, " students assemble several times a week in meetings of religious organiza- tions.

The thirty-three members, all preparing for full- time church vocations, planned a tour of Philadelphia and visits to a Jewish syna- gogue and a Catholic church. Congregating in the home of Pastor Ray- mond Fetter, the twenty-five Lutheran stu- dents of the Lutheran Student Association, gather for worship and fellowship on the first Wednesday evening of each month. The last week end in February meant " con- ference week end " for four LSAers who represented the local group at a regional conference held at the Buck Hill Falls Inn. The gracious giving of dormitory rooms during the Thanksgiving vacation enabled the students of five colleges and one semi- nary to be the guests of Elizabethtown College undergraduates at the Brethren Student Christian Movement Conference. A sketch of campus religious life in the everyday routine reveals an anxious depu- tation speaker rehearsing his sermon to empty chapel pews, students meeting for Bible study, week-end work campers re- viewing the numbers of houses that were painted, the refrain of a hymn as girls gather for weekly vespers, and the momen- tary pause before each meal in thanksgiv- ing for daily bread.

With only four veterans back, the 1954 team put their best foot forward only to lose their opener to Millersville 4-1. Lebanon Valley handed the Jaygals their second loss in a 2-0 tally. But the Bluebirds snapped back to win their only game of the season over Morav- ian on Homecoming Day. Until the last seconds of the game it was a 2-2 stalemate, but a quick, straight drive resulted in a 3-2 victory for the hardfighting coeds. Defeat came again in a four game pack- age. The Jaygals lost to Gettysburg 9-0, and in a return engagement with Millers- ville they were defeated by another 4-1 score. Shippensburg ' s 6-0 decision over Eliza- bethtown followed closely by a 4-1 loss at the hands of Albright gave the coeds a sea- son record of one win and six defeats. 86 1954 Soccer Record Wilkes Gettysburg E.

Varsity basketball Zv ■HE 1954-55 BASKETBALL SEASON was one of broken records and upsets. Coach Don Smith made his debut as the Blue Jays set a school record by scoring 102 points against Philadelphia Phar- macy. This mark was topped four games later as E-town scored 103 points against Juniata and tied again in the last game of the season with Lycoming. Coach Smith started the .season with Senior and Captain Harvey Jacobs. Junior Dick Stine. Sopho- more Sal Paone. and Freshmen Jim Sarbaugh and Jim Chase in the starting lineup. Sophomores Bob Goudie and Bob Wert also saw a lot of action and occasional starting roles. The Blue Jays won their first game in history against G ettysburg in an upset victory. The Jays started fast by winning four of their first five games. losing only to an underdog Dickinson team. They later avenged this defeat by trouncing them on the home court. The traditional series with Lebanon Valley saw the Flying Dutchmen take both games. The game at Annville was a one-point thriller which was lost at the foul line. The second game was held in the spa- cious Hershey Arena and attracted a large crowd. The Blue Jays led through three quarters before bowing to a last period rally by the Dutchmen. The Millersville Marauders, another traditional rival, also won both games. The first game saw 37 personal fouls called against the Blue Jays which led to their downfall. E-town ' came close to pulling a major upset as they lost by three points to St. Joseph ' s of Philadel- phia. Leading throughout most of the game, the Blue Jays fell behind in the closing seconds. Following the second loss to Lebanon Valley, the Blue Jays pulled together and ' ended the season by winning eight of their last eleven games.

' s 51 90 IJumor Varsity basketball C HIS SEASON WAS A DIFFICULT one for the Junior Blue Jays as they were unable to win those close contests, losing 10 of their 19 games. Coach Smith rotated his starting line-up during the season, but the men who saw the most action were Sophomores Lou Lauria, Pat Rafter, and Bob Blessing, and Freshmen Sid Jones, Wilbur King, and Bruce Wohnsiedler. E-town got off to a bad start as they lost four of their first five games. One of these losses by two points was to Lebanon Valley. Bob Wert scored 34 points to lead the first string to a 17 point lead with three minutes remaining. Then the substitutes were sent in as Wert, Rafter, and Lauria rested for the second game. Lebanon Valley took advantage of this situation to score with amazing regularity to defeat the Blue Jays in the final seconds. The Jayvees were also defeated in all three of their overtime games by Stevens Trade, Lycoming, and Millersville. They showed their best scoring punch of the season against Lincoln as they racked up 78 and 77 points respectively, winning both games. Even though the boys played with little publicity, they showed much promise of becoming E-town ' s future varsity stars. Bob Wert played only six games for the Jayvees before moving up to the varsity. During those games he scored 131 points for an average of 21.8. He also scored the season ' s high for a single game by dropping 34 points through the hoop against Lebanon Valley and also against Mil- lersville. Wilbur King, playing all 19 games, amassed a total of 337 points for a scoring average of 17.7. He broke the 20 mark on six occasions, with a personal high of 27 points against Haverford. Lou Lauria was second in scoring with 192 points in 19 games for an average of 10.1. Looking unusually relaxed are Jayvee courtnien.

Pauline Wolfe and Leah Kann. The Jay-gals ' first game ended in defeat as the girls from the South triumphed b) ' forty-nine points. Showing they still had will to fight, the Bluebirds came back to edge Moravian by one point and Mil- lersville by three. -A strong Gettysburg team proved too much for the Birds who were downed by twenty-one points. This time they proved their prowess with a one point victory over Shippensburg. The Millersville girls were ready for them and dumped them by fourteen points. On the heels of this defeat came another twenty-one point trouncing by Gettysburg. Making it three in a row East Stroudsburg gained a fourteen point victory over the Bluebirds.

The junior varsity had a successful season ending with a five-two record. Cheerleaders Always there to yell for their team — win or lose — those were our cheerleaders. Together with the Pep Band they formed the nucleus of a new college spirit found this year on campus.

The Blue Jay matmen, hosts to Millersville State Teachers College, showed plenty of hustle and spirit but lost the match because of inexperience. Wrestling was greeted enthusiastically as 21 men reported to Coach Robert Byerly for practice ses- sions. Many had little or no experience although a few possessed the fundamentals. Following the MSTC match the Blue Jays lost to Temple. East Stroudsburg, and Franklin and Mar- shall on their mats but obtained valuable experience. They broke into the winning column as they scored an overwhelming 30-10 victory over Lincoln University for their only win of the season. Losing the last match to Gettysburg gave them a season record of I win and 5 losses. John Hollinger, a freshman, picked up the most points for E-town by registering 3 wins. I tie. and 1 loss. Larry Seiders, George Gerlach. and Alberto Zayas won 2 victories each.
