Primarily, a college is a society of scholars incorporated for study or instruction, especially in the higher branches of knowledge. But college is more than this. For us it is our way of life. Forrest Kirkpatrick captures the true spirit of a college in these words: A college goes on forever — Not in microscopes or maps. Not on playing fields or in seminars, Or even in the hush of tall elms and fragrant dogwood .... But in the still reaches of the hearts That have loved it, and afterwards understood it And now bear its mark and ideals forever .... The 1956 Conestogan attempts to record the college year as a memory for the " still reaches of the hearts that have loved it . . . and now bear its mark and ideals forever. " Man of Vision The dedication of the 1956 CONESTOGAN is a small token indeed when the vision and service of the man to whom it is dedicated is con- sidered. For over forty years he has been building into a growing institution his vision of a greater Elizabethtown College. In the classroom, in the laboratory, in the office of the dean and now as president. Dr. Baugher has challenged students, demonstrated the scientific method, guided young men and women in their academic and personal choices, and within the first decade of his presidency achieved for the college full accred- itation by the Middle States Association. The measure of his dedication to the purposes of the church-related liberal arts college is reflected in his continuing vision of expansion to meet the demands of increasing numbers of college students. Right: Dr. and Mrs. A. C. Baugher graciously pose for the Conestogan photographer. Below: Dr. Baugher discusses plans for future Senate-sponsored student assemblies with William Bechtel as Mrs. Doris Lewis, secretary to the President, takes notes on the conversation. President A.

LL.D.. 1949 College Expansion The program of EUzabethtown College, paralleling a national trend in higher edu- cation, is running ahead of her facilities. Although the 485 students who entered her classrooms in Sep- tember 1955 were using the same physical plant as the 375 students enrolled in 1950, they were being instructed by more professors. But there were also many other differences. A Ten Year Development Program launched in 1954 closed its first phase with more than $350,000 pledged for college expansion. Most important to the growing number of women students, a new residence hall out- lined in concrete during the opening months of the college year stood in bold steel outline by May Day despite a six-month delay in steel shipment. Careful scheduling of classes, laboratories, and classroom facilities effected the maximum use of space. Scheduled for many purposes the recreation room doubled for band practice, club meetings, coffee hours, men day students ' room, and ping-pong tournaments. The dining hall, open four hours a day to accom- modate a cafeteria breakfast and two seatings at lunch and at dinner, served pre- and post-game meals in addition to the regularly scheduled meals. Day student women shared the second floor Alpha Hall room reserved for commuters with off- campus boarding student women and in addition filled the adjoining Green Lounge. Eighty off-campus boarding student men enjoyed the Alpha Hall living room before and af ter meals. More students meant more activities for a busy Student Senate. The social committee prepared and executed a varied program of weekend activities to meet the needs and changing interests of students. The athletic committee administered an intramural program that ranks high for student participation Student publications reflected the increased en- rollment and pace of activities. The Etownian cir- culation ran to 3600 with two eight-page editions. The CoNESTOG. N. larger than ever, numbers 144 pages and 500 copies. Additional reprints of the first five signatures will be incorporated in the October bulletin for the next few years. Traveling 1 800 miles the college choir presented their sacred concert in churches, high schools, and on radio. Meanwhile, the Board of Trustees and the Ad- ministrative Committee continued to implement long range plans for the growing college. Trustees of Elizdbethtown College attending the October, 1955, board meeting are; seated, left to right: first row, D. C. Stambough, W. W. Leiter, Joseph N. Cassel, K. Ezra Bucher, treasurer; N. S.

A Residence Hall for Women Students r IRST on the agenda was a residence hall for women students that would also provide the campus with a larger dining hall. The period between the filing of an application in October 1952 and the final approval in June 1955 of a loan from the Federal Housing and Home Fi- nance Agency represented a time for numerous com- mittee meetings and anxious waiting. By July 15 the contract had been awarded to the Savastio Construction Company of Hershey and ground breaking ceremonies were held later that afternoon. Construction scheduled to begin August 1 was delayed until August 16 pending the enact ment of an amendment to the federal housing bill that reduced the interest rate on the loan from the federal government from 3.5 to 2.75 per cent per annum. Foundation trenches and basement excavations were completed by Labor Day. The next day the building committee of the Board of Trustees met with J. Alfred Hamme, architect, and William Findley, regional engineer, to discuss the installation of utilities and to consider various matters relative to construction costs, charges, and schedules. By the time the foundation was in place late in October the delay in steel deliveries slowed construc- tion and by December work came to a temporary standstill. With steel deliveries in the early spring construction resumed. The tangible evidences of physical expansion brought renewed hope and new visions to watching students, faculty, and friends of the development program. Time: July 5, 1955. Place: West Campus. Action: A bulldozer uprooting the apple orchard. Reason: Preparing the site for the residence hall for women students. Miss Ethel M. B. Wenger, board member, assists in the groundbreaking ceremonies on Friday afternoon, July 15, 1955, after the contract for the residence hall for women hod been awarded to Sovostio Construction, Inc. Watching the proceed- ings are, left to right: J. W. Kettering, chairmen of the board; Chester H. Royer, Norman K. Musser, members of the board; Alfred Hamme, architect; Presi- dent A. C. Baugher, and Robert Young, administrative assistant. The Residence Hall in Construction By the middle of October the outline of the consruction project was well defined. The fH-shaped foundation was being readied for steel. if ' ' - ■ii- The big snow of the winter on March 17 partially covered the foun- dation ready for delayed steel. The new Church of the Brethren stands almost completed just beyond the edge of the campus. The photographer on April 4 caught the crone swinging the first shipment of steel into place on the foundation. Dimly outlined in the background ore the faculty houses on Mount Joy Street. S Steel, concrete, wires, and brick blend in the new design, committees continue to plan atiead on kitchen equipment, dining hall organization, and dormitOF) ' furnishings. Located on West Campus overlooking the dell to the north and the new Church of the Brethren to the south, the two hundred-foot H-shaped red brick colonial building will house 130 women students. The central dining hall for all boarding students will be located on the first floor to the right of the main entrance. A large lounge and two smaller living rooms are located on the first floor, left. An infir- mary, student rooms, and a faculty suite comprise the east wing, first floor. A suite for the head of residence, a lounge with kitchenette, and rooms for two comprise the second floor. Layout for the third floor is similar to that for the second. By September 1957, rooms will become homes and the residence hall will have a name of its own. A " »- ' - ■ • The present-day auditorium-gymnasium changed into a chapel-auditorium in this architect ' s sketch ot the future building will adequately seat the entire student body. The Drawing Board I HE COLLEGE ATHLETIC program runs ahead of the facihties. Careful planning insured maximum use of the present plant. Physical education classes, wrestling and basket- ball practices, a monthly student assembly, occa- sional professional conferences, and rehearsals filled the weekday schedule in the gymnasium. During the winter months the gymnasium was in use six evenings a week for practices, intercollegiate games, commu- nity program series features, and intramural sports. The commuting third 6f the student body filled the additional parking spaces on the gymnasium drive and rainy day latecomers found themselves parked nearer to the lake than to Alpha Hall. And so the cycle continues — planning, expand- ing, increased enrollment, further planning and ex- panding, larger enrollments.

Mrs. A. C. Bougher, center, is sur- rounded by Mrs. Jack Bryer, Mrs. Henry Musser, Mrs. Wilbur Gorman, Mrs. Merle Black, and Mrs. Fronklin Cassel. Another indication of expansion was the organization on March 17. 1956. of a Women ' s Auxiliary ' for Ehzabethtown College. A month later the auxiliary had grown to a member- ship of fifteen hundred with the prospect of three thousand members by the close of the year. The first areas to be activated were Lancaster, Lebanon, York. Philadelphia, and Cumberland Val- ley. As the auxiliary grows, plans call for extending the membership not only to alumnae but also to other women who are friends of the college. During " punch hour " under the elm on May Day, the auxiliary introduced its purpose to many pros- pective members. Area representatives, meanwhile, were scheduling teas and meetings to extend the aux- iliary to many friends and alumnae. Designed to undertake projects- to make college Hving more pleasant for the women students in the growing school, the auxiliary ' s first project was to provide silver tea and coffee services. As the organ- ization expands, the members hope to undertake more ambitious projects including the establishing of scholarships, furnishing needed units, and provid- ing the many small necessities for gracious living. Miss Ethel Wenger, left, chairman of the executive committee of the auxiliary, exchanges ideas with Mrs. John Minnich, representative from the York area. Mrs. Stanley Baldwin and Mrs. C. M. Papson from the Lebanon area chat with Miss Vera Hackman, dean of women, and Miss Ethel Wenger, woman member of the college board of trustees. 11 A college is the faculty; The fraternity of teachers and scholars, Unselfish, thoughtful, sincere, Patient with ignorance; Lecturing in words of four syllables, Some giving brain-cracking exams; The old professor- Wise with the experience of age. The younger prof — Filled with the facts of the modern day; The sympathetic dean — Always a mixture between stern admonition and kindly counsel, Asking students about their homes and parents. About their hobbies, girl friends, and ambitions. Weaving bits of philoso[)hy with casual talk, Sometimes touching the prosaic with fine poetry. Dr. H. G. Bucher explains the liberal arts program electives to inna Daniloff, a junior majoring in languages. Miss Gladys Hixson, his secretary, takes notes on the interview for inclusion in the stu- dent ' s file for ready reference for future interviews. The central office staff get to- gether at the switchboard for briefing from Mr. Wilbur Weaver, business manager. Taking the calls temporarily is Miss Ruth Miller, in charge of the college store. At the typewriter is Mrs. Nancy Garns, Mr. Weaver ' s sec- retary. Mr. Robert Hollinger, bookkeeper, stands by to check an entry in question. Interrupted while dictating to Miss Martha Farver, his secretary, Mr. K. E. Bucher receives o payment on « share in the Development Pro- gram from Terry Evans. The Development Office, temporarily located on the first floor in the library, is the center of the expansion program. v OLLBGE offices are staffed by secre- taries trained to handle efficiently the clerical details necessary to the operation of an organization of five hundred students and forty-three faculty members. The variety of clerical and secretarial detail ranges from the filing of students ' permanent records to the selling of books in the college store. Special duties of secretaries involve coordination of office management and routine with the total col- lege program as well as checking files, supervising correspondence and incoming mail, and handling telephone communications. College and student ac- counts are recorded and filed by the college book- keeper. 14 Administration F ROM THE TIME we enter college life as eager freshmen until our senior year when we have reached the " portals of maturity, " the Dean of the College follows our academic progress with a per- sonal interest. He coordinates the instructional pro- gram, organizes and directs summer session courses, and plans ofF-campus extension courses including the York Hospital Extension class and the Harrisburg Center in collaboration with Lebanon Valley College and Temple University. He guides students in place- ment at the end of their college careers. All students, freshmen and seniors alike, are well acquainted with the Business Manager who directs the bookkeeping of student accounts. In addition to the maintenance of campus facilities and supervising the purchasing of college supplies, he manages the central business office in which the general clerical activities of the college are conducted. The College Treasurer serves in another capacity as director and coordinator of the Ten Year Devel- opment Program. His capability in management is also revealed in his excellent organization of the Grocers ' School and the School for Restaurateurs which were held as special evening courses during the fall and winter months.

Each year more high schools in a wider area are being contacted by the Director of Admissions and grow- ing numbers of prospective students become ac- quainted with the advantages of a small liberal arts college through public relations. During campus tours visitors inspect the buildings and facilities.

Every fall the college is host to a large number of possible applicants. The committee on admissions establishes entrance standards and carefully considers all applications. Academic records, under the supervision of the Registrar, show an accurate account of scholarship and progress of the student throughout his college career. Mr. Espenshade chats with Miss Inez Keefer, Manheim Central High School senior, at a tea in Alpha Hall living room, honoring prospec- tive college students after a tour of the campus and classrooms. 16 T HE STUDENT ACTIVITIES Office is the sphere of action where planning for all student functions converges. Results of committee meetings and arrangements for events are expedited by the Di- rector of Student Activities who schedules student programs. AU publicity and announcements are cleared through this office, in addition to a Student Activities Calendar which appears each month to in- form the campus of future events. Advising class officers and committees on their projects and plans is another facet of the Student Activities program guided by the Dean of Men who also maintains an office in North Hall. Dean Hackman meets with student heods of smaller women ' s resi- dences. Gwendolyn Miller, Memoriol Hall, at the telephone, is inform- ing her assistant of a change in schedule while Gloria Keller, West Hall, owaits her turn at the telephone.

Students accustomed to the intricate problems of term paper composition are acquainted with the help- fulness of the Reference Librarian as he suggests ap- propriate books and handles the details of the desk work. By his solicitation of funds for the college through personal contact with individuals and large indus- tries, the Administrative Assistant enables the col- lege to provide many additional facilities for the stu- dents. The administration of the athletic program is the task of the Director of ■ ' Athletics. He schedules games and organizes a sports program for students interested in athletics, both intramural and inter- collegiate. Above left: Librarian Alice S. Heilmcn is performing one of her pleas- ant duties, recommending good books to students for relaxing reading. Here she hands a book on the United Nations to Ed Muller, student assistant in the library. Left: Duties of the director of athletics include distributing equipment to the various teams.

J OME of the most precious memories of college life are of tiie experiences sliared in group liv- ing. Students from various backgrounds live together for four years and grow in the spirit of tolerance and cooperation, realizing that each person has an indi- vidual personality which must be understood and ap- preciated. From the roots of college life lasting friendships grow and deepen. The college considers the whole student in its pro- gram of college guidance and provisions for group living. Deans of Women and Men, assisted by the Heads of Residences, the nurse, proctors, and stu- dent assistants are interested in comfortable college living conditions, balanced diets and health, hours for study and pleasure, and the happiness and satis- faction of each student. Orie of the greatest values of a small liberal arts college grows from personal contacts made possible because those responsible for student life know each student individually. Jessie Cosner, residence head of Fairview Hall, and her assistant, Eunice Forrest, and house president, Nancy Brubaker, spend a few spare minutes reading while waiting for the women to congregate for a house meeting in Foirview Hall. Smiling college nurse, Gimmie Lu Cox, hands an x-ray identification card to Verna Weaver. Next in line of the mobile x-ray unit is Shirley Prange. Chest x-rays are compulsory for freshmen and juniors; optional for sophomores and seniors. TUB ' UU I. 1 19 Principles of the labor pyramid are explained by Prof. Albert L Gray, heod of the business de- partment, to his class in economics. Business HIS DEPARTMENT oflfers courses stressing the fundamental methodology of account- ing, economics, finance, mathematics, and human re- lations. Courses in this field furnish students with basic methods of analysis and intellectual under- standing so that they can clearly express a problem, formulate a plan of solution, and then verify the re- sult to the end that society will benefit. The curriculum in secretarial science provides adequate technical training in necessary skills for employment at the end of the two-year period. No student devotes himself exclusively to business sub- jects but acquaints himself with the cultural, scien- tific, and humanitarian aspects of the world, all part of a liberal education. Presenting the basic principles of advertising is Irene H. Sim- sack, business instructor. Pausing to discuss the latest business trends are Prof. K. Ezra Bucher, instructor in ac- counting; Prof. Wilbur Weaver, instructor in business educa- tion methods; ond Prof. Henry F. Gingrich, instructor in law. A friendly smile from Prof. Edgar T.

Facility in communication — the spoken word, the radio commentary, the television panel, the sermon, the news article, research reports — all prepare the student for the professional world of today. Grammar and literory selections are stressed in freshmen English classes by Prof. Raymond C. Franke, shown explaining the diagram of a sentence, and Elinor B. Neumann, pointing out the high lights of an essay by Benchley. An article in the Journal of Higher Education caught the attention of Vera R. Hackman, associate professor of English, who is discussing it with Alice S. Heilman, in- structor in Children ' s Literature. A description of a " muffed " scene in a past production of " The Corn is Green " amuses Sock and Buskiners Edwin Ankeny, president, and Lenora Shenk, secretary, as they discuss their forthcoming production with Dr. James R. King, assistant professor of English and odvisor. 22 History Relaxing in the faculty lounge, Prof. Raymond C. Franke discusses background focts for his class in Modern European History with Mary F. Strickler, instructor in history. During a Medieval History lecture, Dr. Wilhelm Reuning, assistant professor in history and political science, clarifies a confusing pe- riod of Arab history as Gwen Miller checks her notes. PURVEYING the development of civili- zation from its beginning to the present day provides a sense of security in the knowledge of past problems met and conquered. A basic understanding of politi- cal, social, economic, cultural, and intellectual move- ments inspires confidence for the future. Political science with special emphasis on the most important international organizations at work in the world today scans the horizons of global politics ac- quainting the student with the major factors which influence the relationships of national states. The study of the history and principles which com- pose the American heritage of democratic govern- ment deepens an appreciation for our laws and Constitution. " Point of Order " — Dr. Ralph W. Schlosser, professor of English, explains parliamen- tary procedure concerning questions of privilege, point of order, and subsidiary mo- tions to a group of novice political leaders in the Forum in Parliamentary Procedure. Prof. D. Paul Greene, instructor in history, points out the Kingdom of Lombardy to Faye Taggart in a post- lecture period of a History of Civilization class. 23 Dr. Frederick Neumann, professor of longuage, directs students in German II in a study of German culture. Kathryn Herr, instructor in French, emphasizes points in grammar for first year students, Foye Taggart and Mendel Sohn. College algebra absorbs the attention of Glenn Snelbecker and Ronold Hendricks and Carl E. fieilman, associate professor of mathematics. Language • Mathematics Language — the means of communi- cation which draws cultures together — is an essential part of education in the increasingly smaller world of today. Man ' s inventive genius has created the need for greater international understanding. Any student wishing to enter the field of diplomatic relations finds the mastery of world tongues a necessity. Aside from linguistic knowledge for practical pur- poses, the student gains an insight into the cultures, customs, thoughts, and experiences of other nations. Richness in scientific, philosophical, and literary thought and pure beauty of expression provide un- limited benefits for the developing student. Mathematics, the basis for advanced work in many related scientific fields, consists of a combination of numbers, figures, signs, and formulas used in solving problems. Treating the direct relationships of quantities, magnitudes, and methods by which new quantities are deducible from knowns and unknowns, this field teaches students to recognize relationships and to apply accumulated facts to new situations. In a world in which mathematics is emphasized more and more, a real understanding of numerical principles supplies a foundation for life in our mod- ern world. Pointing to the radius of a circle, H. Ronald Rouse, instructor in mathe- matics, explains its relation to an equation in Basic Mathematics 10a. 24 M USIC AAUSIC is the universal language of man- kind, " proposed Longfellow. Because of the encom- passing and intrinsic value of melodic expression, students attend classes in music appreciation, history, and composition. Others release their inner thoughts and emotions through instrumental harmony in band and partici- pation in musical productions. While taking private voice, organ, and piano les- sons many develop their individual talents and f)er- sonal tastes and acquire an extensive repertoire of musical selections. Above: Gertrude Royer Meyer, in- structor in piano, poses with Nancy Kurti at the Icevboord. Below: Band members Glenn Snel- becker. Amy McCiellond, and Joan Rigler with their director, Galen W.

Rudwick, assistant professor of so- ciology, presents an explanation of some typical sociological terms to Purcell McKomey, a major in the field. Psychology • Sociology • Physical Education C OMPREHENSION of the mental and emotional factors which affect thinking and behavior aids the student to understand himself as well as other people. Better world understanding is promoted through sociology courses designed to educate for group liv- ing and to consider the effects of social changes. From the beginning of soccer and hockey to the end of baseball and tennis, many students participate in a varied sports program in the physical education courses. Right: Returning equipment after a strenuous gym class to Donald P. Smith, instructor in physical ed- ucation and coach of men ' s sports, ore Robert Yeingst and Milton Mowrer. Right: On o sunny foil day, the photogropher catches Miss Julia Risser, instructor in physical edu- cation and coach of women ' s sports, demonstrating to Judith Kandte and Marilyn Ward the proper technique for kicking the soccer ball. 26 The cultivation of individual Christian attitudes and personal convictions is one aim of a college education which is intended to de- velop every phase of the student ' s life. Future church leaders and laymen are enabled to continue their studies of the Scriptures and philosophical thinking from the fundamental knowledge provided in Bible classes. The singing of the great hymns of the church, read- ing of the Scriptures, and prayer in the many reli- gious services instill the desire for worship and per- sonal devotion. Experience gained from cooperation in planning programs, participating in worship services, and dis- cussing personal ideals and convictions will prove invaluable to future service and leadership. Audrey Kilhefner and John Fisher discuss an assignment with Mar- tha M. Martin, instructor in Bible, after Biblical Literature class. Professor Robert A.

Carl Myers, guest speaker; Edward Muller, Eldon Morehouse, Nancy Swanson, Jay Gibble, and Gwen Miller 27 The Sciences The boundless opportunities to ex- olore and develop the component divisions of the field of science pose a challenge to many of the col- lege students. Every day new discoveries open un- known doors into different aspects of the natural elements which have existed since the beginning of time. Although as broad as the universe itself, the sci- ence subjects may be divided into the three special- ized areas of biology, chemistry, and physics. Biology provides a knowledge of the structure and functions of animals and plants. The composition and transformation of substances is within the scope of chemistry while the physics student learns of physical compositions of his sur- rounding environment. The mysteries of resistors, inductors, and vocuHm tubes and their function in radio and television sets are explained by Prof. Hubert M. Custer, instructor in physics, to his class in Practical Electronics.

They are chosen by the student body " to represent, lead, and unify the stu- dent body, to decide and act upon any matter involv- ing the student ' s interests, and to cooperate with the faculty and administration. " Two important standing committees of the Sen- ate, the social and athletic, were capably headed by seniors. All eleven senators assisted in the orienta- tion of the Freshman Class through publishing the Rudder, student handbook, and planning and ad- ministering a Freshman Week Orientation program. Senate-planned student assemblies, schedule and procedure for electing student officers, and May Day festivities were demonstrations of the Senate at work. The Committees on Men ' s and Women ' s Affairs plan mutually exclusive programs as suggestion and need indicate. These student-elected representatives bring into focus student interests, needs, problems, and creative plans. 33 Eto wnian Editor Carl Denlinger, right, outlines assigp-nents for the October edition of the Etownian to Jessie Martin, ri jrter; John Way, fea- ture editor; Loretto Kline, reporter, while Gwen Miller " pounds out " story on the typewriter in the Student Activ ' ' ies office. Inquiring selective minds, a word- hoard of wide range, a sense of news values — the in- struments of journalism — are characteristics of the members of the student staff who present a summary of campus news in the Etownian, the college news paper, published by the Student Association.

As the bustle of col- lege life begins, the creation of a new CoNESicxiAN evolves. The thoughtful planning stage in September develops into October ' s harried picture-taking schedule. The exacting job of preparing copy is ac- complished around a much-littered table in the Stu- dent Activities office soon after the literary and art assignments are made. Captions, layout plans, additional pictures, and last-minute details occupy the interest and lime of many students before the final copy is delivered to the printer. Five hundred copies of the finished prod- uct, representing hours of cooperative work, are ready for distribution to the college faculty and stu- dent body in May. The CoNFSTOGAN editor and business manager, elected by the student body in the spring, are assisted by numerous volunteers in the preparation of the annual yearbook which depicts every phase of cam- pus life and recalls countless memories of the college year.

Early in the fall activities began with the three one-act plays — Double-Date. Riders to the Sea. and The Man in the Bowler Hat — all student-directed. During the Christmas season the group presented Letty ' s Christmas Prodigal. The high point of the year, dramatically speaking, was the spring per- formance of The Corn Is Green, on the evening of April 13. Contributing to the May Day festivities, the club presented a portrayal of a fairy tale for the delight of children and adults. On stage .

It is cooperation and the combination of talents which initiate and energize campus proj- ects. It is meeting together with men and women of learning and experience to hear and exchange ideas and views on current topics. It is a knowledge of the functioning of democratic principles in college elections. College is relaxing and having fun to- gether — students and faculty — both at informal cam- pus parties and at those all-important formal affairs of each school year.

Bill Pensyl was the Jays ' top offensive gun averag- ing 17.4 points per game, and Sal Paone ran second with a 15.4 point norm. Tony Arcuri ' s 32 tallies at Dickinson was the personal high for the year. 1955-56 BASKETBALL RECORD HE 1955-56 basketball team was one of the finest that ever represented Elizabethtown Col- lege. Under the able leadership of Coach Donald Smith, the cagers broke record after record in the march to their 18-6 final tally. They passed the cen- tury mark eight times, five of these in a row, and broke a team record when they tallied 111 points in a victory over Western Maryland. Coach Smith began the season with a startling lineup of three juniors and two sophomores, but quickly realized that he had too many good players to employ one set combination. Sal Paone, junior. Bob Wert, junior, and Bill Pensyl, freshman, did the bulk of the scoring while Pensyl, along with Jim Chase, sophomore, and Dick Stine, senior, excelled in rebounding. Jim Sarbaugh, sophomore, acted as a playmaking quarterback and was instrumental in the Jays ' snappy brand of ball. Juniors Tony Arcuri, Bob Goudie. and Fred Noel all saw much action in- cluding numerous starting assignments.

Bruce Wohnsiedler ran second with a 15.5 average and a .566 field average which was good for first place on the team. He also had the personal high with a 33-point performance at Hershey Junior Col- lege. Don Price shot best at the foul line with a .717 percentage and Ed Geiger collected the most re- bounds, 155. Junior Varsity Basketball I F THE Junior Varsity basketball team of 1955-56 is any indication of the future, there is more good basketball in store for Blue Jay fans. With a squad of seven men, five freshmen and two sophomores, at the end of the season. Coach Smith piloted the team to a 10-7 record. In compiling this mark the Junior Jays averaged 64.4 points per game to their opponents " 60. All in all they netted 1094 points to the opposition ' s 1020. Their best offensive effort was a record breaking 114-81 victory over the Dickinson Red Devils. This total set a floor record and a school record. Probably the most thrilling contest of the campaign was the 71-69 affair at Millersville. Gaining and losing the lead all evening, the Junior Jays finally pulled it out in overtime when Bruce Wohnsiedler slipped one in at the buzzer. On the other hand, the Junior Smith- men lost a heart breaker at Carlisle when a Dickin- son player sank a tie-breaking desperation shot with two seconds remaining. Junior Jays — Kent Replogle, Fred Romberger, Ed Geiger, Sheldon Dent, Coach Don Smith, Bruce Wohnsiedler, Don Price, Jack Hed- rick, and Hayes Girvin. JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL 1955-56 EC.

The rec- ord of two wins, five losses and one draw shows no vast change over the one and five first-season record, but the added experience and spirit of the grapplers proved that wrestling is on its way to becoming an established sport at Elizabethtown. The matmen of Coach Robert Byerly recorded victories over Western Maryland and Lincoln while tying Pennsylvania Military College. They bowed to Millersville, Temple, East Stroudsburg, Gettysburg, and Ursinus. John Hollinger picked up the most points for E-town with 21 on three decisions, a draw, and a forfeit.

PERMITTED Campus tennis champion Lorell Price rests a moment following an intramural match. I HE INTRAMURAL PROGRAM was probably expanded more this year than in any other year in the history of the college. The women, espe- cially, enjoyed a greater selection of athletic activi- ties. The fall saw them actively engaged in a volley ball league every Wednesday evening. Later, bowl- ing, which began as a physical education class activ- ity, became an established league. In the spring an- other sport, badminton, was added. The women also participated in the tennis and softball tournaments. The men, on the other hand, began the year with a six-team touch football league and a tennis tourna- ment in which thirty men engaged. The largest attraction of the term for the men was the basketball league held in the winter season. Six teams, one from each dormitory and three composed of commuting and down-town residents, clashed in a league that provided many interesting contests. The men, also, were provided with softball action in the spring. The intramural schedule, sponsored and di- rected by the Student Senate Athletic Committee, represented the best supported and most varied pro- gram of activities of this tj pe since the founding of the college.

A college is classes; Quaking students, nervous students. Those who are bored, challenged. Fired with purpose, discouraged; Term papers and chemistry labs. And burning the midnight oil. A college is a singing stride Toward the portals of maturity, A way of life, deep-rooted as a pine; A cluster of ideals, courage and hope. And fear of fulfillment. And looking forward and looking back. A ill r i h mi L. lasses Courtesy ot Lancaster Sunday Newt College — A Singing Stride 70 Class of 1959 J NE WARM Sunday afternoon in mid- September 175 very eager, but slightly bewildered freshmen whispered good-bye to the familiarity of high school days and home life and stepped into the challenging existence of college dormitories and cam- pus living. In the midst of meeting roommates, bidding par- ents farewell, and attempting to unpack and hang curtains, we experienced that tingling sensation pe- culiar to facing the world alone for the first time. In the cafeteria supper line we struggled to remember the names of many of our fellow freshmen who later became faithful friends. At the SCA lake-side vesper service we worshipped together in the beauty of God ' s creation. Our first introduction to college tests began early Monday morning and continued through Tuesday. Deans Hackman and Greene explained the responsi- bilities of living together in a campus family as we gathered at the Deans ' party on Monday evening. Watermelon and group singing by the outside fire- place added that final touch to our first informal get- together. The fast pace of the polka made us laugh with en- joyment and puff with exertion at the folk games be- yond the gym on Tuesday evening. At eight o ' clock on Wednesday morning we be- came acquainted with the lengthy questionnaire of initial registration as we strained our gray matter in trying to remember our home telephone numbers and the name of the hometown newspaper. We spent our free minutes during these first col- lege days in athletic contests, sight-seeing, room-dec- orating, and gab sessions. Snapped on their tour of the construction projects were; Helen Louise Bucher, Marguerite Brown, Millie Clay, Judith Reed, Angela Longo, Sara Cooper, Shirley Creager, and Carolyn Schneider.

Our " big sisters " entertained us " little sisters " at a tea on Friday afternoon. That evening we put on our thinking caps as we attempted to answer many puz- zling questions at the Senate Quiz Show. Jewelry, lamps, sweaters, and a spaghetti dinner at Tony ' s were a few of the prizes that members of the Class of ' 59 took back to the dormitories. Roller skating, bowling, amusements, baseball, and volleyball captured our attention on Saturday at the all-college picnic at the Rock Springs Park. And that barbecued chicken! The reception at the Church of the Brethren on Sunday evening was a fitting ending to a week packed full of orientation to the academic and social phases of college living. Cheeseburgers, cokes, and ice cream are as near as the telephone.

Each day brought new experiences and new en- counters with the Sophomore Rules Committee. Humbly we lowly freshmen doffed dinks, bowed low, distributed toothpicks, and sang for the pleasure of upperclassmen. To the few of us who objected was meted the punishment of carrying stepladders around the campus. Most of us wore our prescribed outfits without murmuring for we consoled ourselves with the fact that next year it would be our turn. Eagerly we watched the days speed by as the ap- proaching Homecoming Day and the annual tug-of- war between freshmen and sophomores brought more hope of discarding those hated dinks. The teams were lined up on either side of cold and muddy Lake Plac- ida. Pulling with all their might, our girls defeated the sophomore girls. But alas! The sophomore boys proved the stronger and our fellows enjoyed a dip in the lake. Dinks became a permanent part of their wardrobe until Thanksgiving vacation.

Remember? Class of 1959 The election of our class officers was one of our first major projects following the Christmas vacation. The results revealed that our class had chosen wisely. Colvin Carter was elected to lead us as president and Carl Zeigler was selected to fill the position of vice president. Fran Hoover was chosen to be the secretary: Mort Feder was pre- ferred as the class treasurer. Midsemester tests came and with them coffee hours. Before long our finals, too, were completed. With one semester ' s work behind us we looked to- ward our future studies with more confidence. Reg- istration for second semester was soon here and again we filled out six yellow cards and numerous other forms. Eight members were added to our number. During the next four months we matured and grew both in knowledge and in social poise.

In our frequent visits to the dining hall we were cheered by the early morning smiles of the " cocoa pourer " Morton Feder and courteous waitressing of Sylvia Shaffer. Esther Frantz. Angle Longo. Margie Price, Betsy Lohr. and Yvonne Cosner. By straining our ears we could hear the rattle of dishes and pans as Carl Zeigler. Faye Taggart. Phyllis Moser. Maynard Gunstra, and Donald Egolf worked behind closed kitchen doors. Three women and two men were entrusted with responsible positions as assistant heads of residence and laboratory assistants. Madeline Brightbill sub- stituted for Dolly Longenecker in Memorial Hall dur- ing practice teaching days while Betsy Lohr was sec- ond in command at West Hall. Emma Hoffman, Bob Ranck. and Don Monn loaned their talents to the science department as they assisted in the labora- tories. Music enriches the lives of many of us.

The freshmen joined wholeheartedly in the reUgious activities of the campus. Seventy- seven new members were added to SCA. Many of us were interested in the more specific rehgious or- ganizations. CBYF claimed the interest of eighteen. Maynard Grunstra, Don Knaub, Dick Ott, George Smith, and Dick Williams joined the ranks of the Eta Gamma Kappa. New faces at LSA included Pat Nase and Bob Ranck. Helen Louise Bucher proved to be an asset on several deputation teams. Diversified interests were channeled into various other organizations. Thirteen of us were drama en- thusiasts and Sock and Buskin gave us a perfect op- portunity to express our creative talent. Of those in the education curriculum Evelyn Kane, Carolyn Scheneider, and Ruth Ann Arnold became a part of the FTA. Peggy Hostetter and Joyce Ann Schaffner displayed their interest in government by adding their names to the membership of the Political Science Club. The Etownian and the Conestogan enlisted the writing ability of Ken Bowers, Daniel Brensinger, and Beverly Styer.

Friendships were renewed, deepened, and cemented while we worked, played and grew together. Revenge was sweet! How we connived to " torture " those poor, innocent freshmen! But they were good sports and enthusiastically sang the Alma Mater, re- spectfully doffed their lampshades, and willingly passed their toothpicks. Carlin Brightbill. the " friend of the freshmen. " proved to be a capable chairman of the Sophomore Rules Committee. Mercilessly dragging the freshmen fellows through the muddy Lake Placida. our " men " once again dis- played their brute strength in the annual tug-of-war. Our class was organized under the efficient leader- ship of Jim Chase, president: John Hollinger, vice president; Audrey Kilhefner. secretary; and John Ranck. treasurer. This year our enrollment was 1. 0. Although we lost some of our former classmates, others had come to replace them. After the initial excitement wore off we resignedly settled down to the " old grind. " By this year we were hardened to the familiar routine of " lecture, cram, test, forget. " The No-Doze industry hit an all time high semester exam eve. Although we chose a wide variety of courses, most of us had General Biology lOa-b, Survey of English Literature 20ab, and History of Modern Europe 20ab. We came out of biology laboratory wjth stooped shoulders and squinting eyes, but we were proud that we were " the fit who survived. " Not for- getting serious moments, through biology we learned to look at our world more open-mindedly. Traveling the roads of English Literature from Chaucer to Defoe to Dickens, we stopped along the way to visit the minor poets and prose writers. Our journey was refreshed by an exploration of the Ro- mantic Period, with all its gaiety and sentiment. How we looked forward to those objective (?) tests! Pencils flew during those European History lec- tures. Every liberal arts major was becoming ac- quainted with the trends and forces that produced colonialism, the fascist and communist states, and the two world wars. Meanwhile majors in other fields were spending long hours in the laboratory or completing those practice sets in accounting or learning the methods for teaching art in the public schools. Edwin A.

Glancing back through a door about to close on another college year, we catch glimpses of unforget- table highlights of the past: the all-college picnic, community programs, the Christmas party, and car- oling, swimming and roller skating parties, the Val- entine Ball, and the May Day festivities. We emerge from the experiences and events of this year more mature and confident but already looking to the fu- ture with its challenges to be met and opportunities to be accepted.

Tales of summer experiences were exchanged and friendships were re- newed in the pleasant atmosphere of Alpha living room during our first social acitivity of the new col- lege year. President and Mrs. Baugher ' s Tea for the Junior Class. Plans for our class agenda began to take shape. The operetta we talked about in the spring would now have to be chosen, an invitation issued to all students who wished to sing, and the event sched- uled on the student activity calendar. We were an- ticipating, too, plans for the traditional banquet for the seniors even though the date would be May 19. At last we were entitled to wear the official col- lege ring! When could we order? When should we report for hockey, soccer ' Any new players that look promising; " Before we left the tea the Junior Class agenda was fairly well established unofficially. Three of our class missed during those first days were already enrolled in nurses " training programs in Philadelphia hospitals: Joan LeVan at Jefferson and Cassandra Fitzkee and Joanne Evans at Lan- kenau. Other two-year students were serving as med- ical secretaries in hospitals and offices of physicians. Transfer students took their places. New to our class this year were: Anthony Arcuri. Gimmie Lu Cox, Barbara Loban. Jean Fretz. Lois Hess. Joyce Longenecker, Charles Nach, Fred Noel. John Shil- cusky. LeRoy Steinbrecher. and Doris Spotts. Enthusiastically we joined the seemingly endless line in the college gymnasium for final registration. With our class admission cards we trooped off to di- gest our first U.S. History lecture. Our pencils raced along at jet speed and we soon discovered that regu- lar periods of hibernation were necessary to become acquainted with such subjects as colonization, sec- tionalism, and struggles for freedom. The fear of our first Speech class quickly dissolved into feelings of eagerness and interest. Second semester found edu- cation majors delving into the depths of philosophy. That five-lettered slogan THINK took on increased meaning as we participated in these reflective classes. President Bob Goudie. Vice-president Bob Bless- ing. Secretary Polly Wolfe, and Treasurer Jim Baugher provided capable guidance for our third year ' s activities. Several transfer students filled the vacancies left by the departure of our two-year class members now employed in offices and laboratories. During the crisp autumn days the athletes of our class joined the hockey and soccer teams destined for successful seasons. Jessie Martin, captain, and Verna Weaver supplied the stick-gals with extra pep and were partly responsible for that outstanding record. Soccer headaches held no fears for Bill Stoneback, John Fisher, Don Willoughby, Ken Miller, and Jim Baugher. Chuck Nach was the team manager. Anthony Arclri MAR Lou Armstrong York, Pa. Bridgewater.

RUTHANNE BuTTERBAUGH Elizabethtown, Pa. The nucleus of this year ' s varsity basketball squad was composed of Juniors Sal Paone, Bob Goudie, Bob Wert (all three-year men), Tony Arcuri and Fred Noel. Their basketball prowess brought new glory to Elizabethtown ' s small gymna- sium. Pete Thompson ' s pep band with Carl Spease tooting the trombone and Pete carrying the jazz mel- ody on the trumpet was on hand at home games to assist the cheerleaders and bolster the enthusiasm of the crowd. The Jay Gals were strengthened by veterans Audrey Sprenkle, Polly Wolfe, Verna Weaver, Hazel Yoder and the addition of Gimmie Lou Cox. An ex- perienced and spirited team dribbled their way through a season of exciting games. Jobs on campus occupied extra minutes of a small group of juniors. Ed Muller efficiently checked, sorted, shelved, and distributed books in the library. Servrhg as head waitress in the dining room was Hazel Yoder. Always willing to offer assistance and answer questions in the laboratories were Al Rogers and Layton Fireng. Head of Residence Gloria Keller skillfully managed West Hall affairs while Audrey Sprenkle and Mary Lou Armstrong performed duties as assistant heads of residence in Alpha Hall and West Hall respectively. These positions required tact, tolerance, and poise — valuable experience in the art of human relations. Joseph F. Cook Milford. Del. Gimmie Lu Cox Highspire, Pa. Inna Daniloff Millville, N. J.

Polly WOLFE and Bob Knappen- berger were our representatives on the Student Sen- ate. Polly headed the Blazer committee and Bob Goudie the Jacket committee. Four juniors served on the Committee on Women ' s Affairs: Audrey Sprenkle, secretary; Gloria Keller, Joyce Roudabush, and Nancy Swanson. Jay Lutz was chairman of the Committee on Men ' s Affairs and Robert Wert served as a member. Class activities often merged with all-campus ac- tivities. Our October bowling party gave impetus to intramural bowling. Our most ambitious undertaking was sponsoring Gilbert and Sullivan ' s " The Pirates of Penzance. " Among the soloists were Ken Miller, Bill Stoneback, and Ted Yohe. Students from all classes and profes- sors contributed to the success of the venture by long hours of behind-the-scenes work. And then came May Day with all its delicate beauty. Audrey Sprenkle and Jean Fretz, our repre- sentatives in the Queen ' s Court, are part of our mem- ory of the loveliness of that day. Juniors were well represented among those feted at the Activities E and Varsity E dinners honoring students for participation in the extra-mural activi- ties of the college.

Actually this is just the tangible expression of the ending of one phase of our life. Most of us realized at the begin- ning of the term that our college days were rapidly coming to a close and with each new event we said that never again would we enjoy that activity as a part of the college family. For some, the break is not so abrupt as for others. Those who were married while attending school or who entered as married students do not have the same feelings toward campus life. For Lucy Baugher Falk, Josephine Leppo Bechtel, Bill Bechtel, Glenn Dimeler. Harold Wenger. and John Stoner college is only part of living. Others like Purcell McKamey, retired Air Force veteran, had gained experience and maturity before joining us to learn a new profession. f f Josephine L. Bechtel R.D. 2, Hanover, Pa.

Many wonderful memories of our final year will remain with us. Some of us think back to the first senior-sponsored party of the year, the swimming party at the Millersville pool. The hobo party held in the recreation room of Me- morial, offered an informal evening of games and fun with hoagies, chips, and soft drinks to take the edge off that hungry feeling. John K.

For- gotten now are the little fears and problems that tor- mented us; we remember only the thrill of teaching our own classes. Evelyn Bell, Nancy Brubaker, Marie Kinney, Sally Knepper, Marilyn Longenecker, Rita Stoner, Dorothy Stotz, and Harold Wenger were lo- cated in the Middletown elementary schools. Two seniors. Josephine Bechtel and Gladys Geiselman, taught in Florin. Four student teachers were at Mari- etta: Pat Minnich, Doris Welch, Janet Trimmer, and Rita Zug. At neighboring Donegal High School were Elton Abel, Lucy Falk, Brooke Butterwick, and Ruth Wit- ter. Jack Byers, Jack Ferich, Loretta Kline, Ruth Kling, and Gwen Miller taught in Elizabethtown.

Seventeen of us will go into high school history, English, language, sci- ence, and business classes and fourteen into elemen- tary classrooms. Eighteen of us will take positions with industry. There are four chemists among us. Seven are pastors or will take further training in the ministry. Social work and psychology will claim a few. Naomi Ravsor Harrisburg. Pa.

Adding to the breath-taking loveliness of the occasion were Janet Earhart. maid of honor, and Nancy Bishop and Ruth Kling. senior attendants. A week later many seniors were proudly display- ing their Varsity E " s presented the evening before at a banquet honoring athletes. The next evening we were entertained in the pleas- ant setting of the Harrisburg Civic Club. The coeds in tulle and crystalette, men in dark suits, delicious food, corsages, strolls in the moon-drenched garden by the Susquehanna — it was a memorable evening indeed! Jay F. Walmer 103 N.

Class of 1956 A IONDAY brought struggles with final college examinations and continued preparations for commencement activities at the end of the week. The last week on campus was a busy one not allowing much time for thoughts of leaving college life. How- ever, momentary twinges of panic and sadness were quickly dispelled by the flurry of activity. Then almost before we were really prepared for it, we were trying on caps and gowns while antici- pating diplomas and degrees. On that last Saturday night we became members of the Alumni Association at a banquet held in our honor in the gym. Sunday and the baccalaureate service in the new Church of the Brethren just off campus — and then Monday, May 28 arrived. The Class of 1956 walked proudly and solemnly to the gymnasium to receive those long-awaited degrees. Now as we close the college doors behind us, the " portals of maturity " open before us and we enter confidently. To our Alma Mater we are indebted for our stim- ulating association with men and women of learning, a heightened sense of responsibility, an increased de- termination to persevere, the fullness of critical think- ing, a keener appreciation for the culture of the ages, and a deepened reverence for God and His creation. 16 Mark Youndt R.D. 3.
