Class The time has fled, the year is gone, The end is drawing nigh. Dear friends, we meet with you to-night To say a fond good-bye. With memories dear we leave this school, We ' ll ne ' er forget so soon. We ' ll think of it in later days At every changing moon. Five years ago, a band of us First saw t his campus green. Its stately elms, its velvet turf, A dream to us when seen. We started on the road to Fame, That path so long and steep. We bravely climbed each mighty hill And crossed each hollow deep. The year was o ' er, we left for home. Three months of respite gained. And came again at autumn-time. With high ideals untamed. Once more we started on the road, The goal before our eyes. With help and counsel, brave and true, We climbed on to the skies. Then suddenly behind a cliff . An army came to view. We challenged them if they were friends. They said, " We ' ve ambushed you. " ' ■We are the mighty Latin hosts. Who conquer in each fight. You too, we ' ll harass, till some day You ' ll leave in shameful flight. " They kept their word, with weapons true, They fell upon our rear. But though they fought, as brave men should. We did not have to fear. For was not faith the helmet strong? Was courage not the shield? Was strength not there, that trusty spear. To save us in the field? Poem Another year of toil was o ' er. We went home for a rest. We needed it, and in the fall The strife was full of zest. For mighty bands of Greeks now warred To wipe us off the earth. Led by their mighty Xenophon, They soon found out our worth. For fight we would, and tight we could In heat and wintry cold. We kept right on, our goal in view. Brave, confident and bold. For two more years we fought these foes. These two big, wily hosts. The Greeks and Latins fought with zeal And filled the air with boasts. And now to-night we ' ve reached cur goal. We stand at portals wide. Behind us lies a cherished past. In front the morning-tide. The morning-tide of faith and love Will make our foot-steps strong. The sun of hope will be our guide. Will lead us all life long. And now in close, we iiray Thee God, As thou hast taught us pray. Shield thou the teachers, v. ' ho have taught Us lessons day by day. Shield thou our comrades, who are left To carry on their strife. Their cause is ours, for them we pray, " Protect them all their life. " Oh, Blmhurst, Elmhurst, now we leave. We ' ve conquered in thy name. Long may you thrive ' Long be thy life! Long may endure thy fame! P. C. Knickek. Class of ' 19. Prtfii- lit Chaiu.es Young, " Red " Pres. Class, ' 17. ' 18, ' 19; Pres. A.A. ' 18, ' 19; Pres. Student Council, Student Repr., Y. M. C. A.

' two do not shave so much alike as not to he distinguished. " — Samuel .Johnson. The President of the Class of 1919. Red was at the helm of our Ship of State and successfully led us past the rocks and shoals of our class career. He served as the Pres- ident of the A.A., and the Student Council. His name will go into the Elmhurst Hall of Fame as a star short-stop on the baseball field. Geouce Soxnebohx. .Jr., " Sonnie " Vice Pres. Class ' 16, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Vice Pres. A.A.

" A fine volley of words, gentlemen, and quickly shot off. " — Shakespeare. Here ' s a born business man for you. Sonnie managed the business end of this book. When it came to sarcastic phraseology, his vocabulary was unlimited, but he always used it good-naturedly. Sonnie always took the role of the hero in the College plays — he couldn ' t help being dramatic at times. Armix Bizer, " Biz " Class Treas. ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Football, ' 17, ' 18; Y. M. C. A. ' 18, ' 19; Student Council; Bus. Mgr. A.A.; " Our Jim, " " William Tell; " President Bus. Men ' s Club. " .S ' »(7i sweet compulsion doth in music lie. " — Milton. Behold the gentlemen from Iowa! Biz has won the respect of everyone thru his frank and open ways. He has won fame on the football field where he was a dangerous op- ponent, but we will remember him best by his ability at the organ. Theodore Schluxdt. " Teddy " Sec ' y.

" All musical peotile scon to he happy. " — Smith. Our musical virtuoso. Teddy ' s favorite piece was " Slidus Trombonus " where he could demonstrate the graceful art of sliding the slip-horn. The success of the Band this year was mainly due to his excellent leader- ship. Teddy and ragtime were inseparable. Robert Rkhtei;, " Bob " Orpheus, ' 16, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Band, ' 16, ' 17, ' 18, " 19; Y. M. C. A. ' 16, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Sec ' y. Schiller, ' 18, ' 19; Vice Pres. Class, ' 17, ' 18; Fin. Sec ' y. Class, ' 1 8, ' 19. Good nature is the sign of a large and gen- erous soi(7. " - -Goodman. Yip! Yip! Our cow-punchers from Texas. Altho Bob was forced to discontinue his studies for a long time on account of sick- ness, he kept up with the Class by strenuous work. Bob had one of the friendliest dis- positions of any fellow at Blmhurst and every one liked him for his manliness. Walter Morv, " Stogie " Historian, Class, ' 18, ' 19; Band, ' 15, ' IG, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Orchestra, ' 16, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Octette, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Brass Quartette, ' 18, ' 19; Elm- hurst Editor " Keryx " ' 18, ' 19; Editor-in-Chief " The Elms. " " No unan was ever ivise by chance. " — Seneca. The Class of 1919 did a wise thing when they made Stogie Editor-in-Chief of the " Elms. " He conscientiously kept the wheels moving, even when it seemed that they were about to get stuck. His knowledge of Greek, Latin and History was surprising. His Cornet playing will long be remembered because he was no amateur with that instrument. NoRBERT Sc ' HULTz, " Captain " Vice Pres., Y. M. C. A. ' 18, ' 19; Basketball.

Norbert kept every- one in good spirits by his witty remarks and dry humor. His wind was good, which he showed us by the way he tooted the bass- horn in the Band, and by the way he danced around the Basketball floor. Some day Norbert will be Secretary of Domestic Affairs.

" " Washington is dead, Lincoln is dead, and I ' m not feeling well myself. ' Abel certainly had nerve when it came to soliciting advertisements, for this book. He could talk a person into buying anything, which showed his business ability. The joy of his life was to get up early when he was sub-Senior. He has never been known to flunk a test, which he claims is due to his Nebraska training. His good nature won lasting friends for him wherever he went. GUSTAVE Behrens. " Gus " Beta Tennis Club, ' 14; Alpha, ' 15; Olympic, ' 16. " Witt tJiou have music hark- Apollo plays and tiventy caged nightingales do sing. " — Shakespeare. A quiet fellow was Gus, but once get him started, Oi, Oi, Gewalt! He was very reg- ular in his habits, especially in the habit of receiving and sending letters. Gus was always happy when he was given the chance to sing the latest rags, which he di d with much gusto. Here ' s to his success in later life. .JrLix.s Braun. " Julie " Vice Pres.

Schiller Society, ' 17, ' 18; Office Clerk; " William Tell. " " Sang in tones of deep emotion. Songs of love and songs of longing. " — Longfellow " Mail! " How we loved to hear .Julie ' s deep bass voice sing this oratorio. Julie was a specialist in making scenery for the College plays. He was the man who pressed the button that blew the whistle at the end of many a wearisome period. How he loved musical comedies and the Manderin Inn. Thkophil Gablei!. " Theo " -Laugh at your friends, and if your friends are sore. So much the better, you. may laugh the more. " — Pope. Always ready with a joke or funny story, which he could never tell Avithout laughing most himself, Theo won many friends. Tho small in stature, his good nature was bound- less. In spite of this, he could at times take life very seriously. He hails from the Mule state. — ' nuff sed. Martix Ewat.d. " Meme " Y. M. C. A., ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Vice Pres. Mission Society, ' 18, ' 19; Associate Editor, " Elms; " Bus. Mgr. Bus. Men ' s Club; " William Tell. " " He talks of rcood; it is some carpenter. " — Shakespeare. " Meme " is one of the gentlemen who assisted in writing these " post mortems, " but we guarantee he had no hand in this one. He possessed an insuppressable sense of humor which he never failed to use at the right moment. He was a practical fellow and when anything needed mending or adjusting we invariably went to him for aid. His heart was as good as gold and many were his friends. Arthur Gernamd. " Schnorkey " Band, 15, ' 16, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Brass Quartette, ' 18, ' 19; Football, ' 15, ' 16, ' 17, ' 18; Basket- ball, ' 18, Capt., ' 19; Baseball, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Mgr. Track, ' 19; Librarian, ' 19; " Our Jim. " " Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom. " — Coleridge. Art was an all-around man; winning fame both in the class room as an expert of dead and modern languages, and in athletics where he participated in all the sports. He gained a reputation by his performances on the baritone. He surely will make a success of life. Reubex Heim. " Birdie " Gym. Teacher, ' 16, ' 17, ' 18; Football, ' 17, ' 18; Philobiblicum, ' 17. " A ' o man can be wise on an empti stomach. " — George Eliot. " Tweet, tweet. " Here comes " Birdie. " You can tell him from afar by his flowing plum- age. An all-around good scout was " Birdie. " Like Aeneas, " To him was known what a raging woman could do in her disappointed love. " He certainly knew how to take care of his feet on the football field. .John Hille • ' The boy has done his duty. " — Addison. .John ' s motto evidently was " Pay strict at- tention to duty " — which he effectively lived up to during his reign as head-senior. .John was a second Bach when it came to poly- phony in choral interludes. We all admire his dogged tenacity in persuing his studies. Keep at it, .John, keep at it. Fhkj) Iseli. " Facile " Vice President, Bus.

Ladies and gentlemen, especially the ladies, allow us to introduce to you Mr. Iseli from St. Paul, heart-breaker and gentleman of fortune. Facile ' s talent for writing short stories was certainly evident in writing letters to the young men of St. Paul. Success is his if he tackles his life ' s problems as vigorously as he did his Latin and Greek classics before a test. Paar I. ' , Paul Kxtcker. " John Brown " Oratorical Contest, ' IS; Fin. Sec ' y.

Who ' d ever thunk it, that .Jim Crow would ever acquire such glory! Never-the-less he did, which is much to his credit. Long will he be remembered by the wierd chords he produced when he became excited at the organ. Enwi.v Koch, " Ed " Pres.

The tocsin of the soul — the dinner bell. " — Anon. " What ' s the idea? " When Ed didn ' t quite get the drift of some proceeding, this was his invariable question. Ed always liked to hear the merry peal of the dinner bell. Altho he did like to eat, he liked arguing and con- ducting Mission meetings better. Many a football opponent found that Ed was a hard man to rush. Ervix Koch, " Erv " Class Hist., ' 17; Yell Master, A.A., ' 18, ' 19; Orchestra, ' 18, ' 19; Brass Quartette, ' 18, ' 19; Sec ' y. Y. M.

" When Erv. let out this yodel he acted more like a butterfly than a Y. M. C. A. President. He could never decide whether he wanted to be a musician or work for the St. Paul Gas Company to " pay for baby ' s shoes. " Erv. was also an opera- fiend, but this fault was over-looked by his patient room mates, for he was a good sport at all times.

" Hey Guys, waltz the broom around the room a little, the girls are coming out Sun- day! " In this respect at least Coder was very particular. He wasn ' t quite so partic- ular with his voice. His fairness in render- ing decisions and his sharp eyes made him an A N ' o. 1 Basketball referee. Coder was one of the best goal keepers in Football that Elmhurst has seen for a long time.

' ■Exhausting thought and hiving tcisdom vdth each studious year. " — Byron. Theo was always In demand where level- headed thinking was needed. He was never satisfied with the superficial explanation of a professor, everything had to be explained in the minutest detail much to our joy, be- cause we all took a snooze when this was done. His heart certainly was in the right place and we all liked him. The 1919 bas- ketball team showed his ability as basket- ball manager, and he was a fine foot ball player. Roy Muelleu Octette, ' 18, ' 19; Orchestra, " 18, ' 19; Mission Society Cabinet. " am sure. Care ' s an enemij to life. " — Shakespeare. Altho Roy liked to have a good time occas- sionally, he was a faithful student and an ardent Mission supporter. We admired him for his courage in standing up for his con- victions especially in meetings. He was a good first violinist in both the Octette and the College Orchestra. Victor Nkwm. .v.

" " The reward of a thing well done, is to have done it. " — Emerson. At sunrise every morning. Shorty could be seen hoisting Old Glory to the top of the flag pole. As President of the Schiller Society he contributed much to its success. He deserevs credit for the way in which he performed his duty as football captain. Shorty smoked according to the mail schedule — there was a reason. We wonder where he left his moustache when he had this picture taken. Louis Oe.stkeichei!. " Oesty " ' ' Who climbs the grnvimer-tree. distimthi knows. " Where noun and verb and partidplr grows. " Oesty believed in " letting George do it " when it came to talking, but he preferred to do his own thinking. When we wish to know the meaning of some big word, we ran to Louis — he always knew. He was also a bright-light when it came to Latin. We never will forget him. as he was an all- around good hearted fellow and easy to get along with. •1 , 1 O Louis Pin( keht. " Pinkie " " Speech is better than silence; silence is better than speech. " — Emerson. Pinkie and Inkie came from the same town, and were room mates. Pinkie ' s greatest de- ligtit was writing over-due compos, and re- decorating Room 314. He was one of our left-handed stellars of the diamond, where he covered the first sack. We often won- dered what made Bensenville so attractive to him. Some of us had a faint idea. Hem!Y Rku scii.nkider, " Hank " Band, ' 18, ' 19; Orchestra, ' 18, ' 19; Y. C. A. Cabinet, " 18, ' 19. ' •Arrows of satire, feathered with icit. and wielded with sense, fly home to their mark. — Simmons. Another deep thinker! Hank was very much interested in intricate theological questions and he certainly has a bright future before him as a minister. We expect him to be a satirical writer some day judg- ing from the caustic remarks he lets loose occasionally. He also tried his hand at violin playing, short-hand, and the " Parlez vous Francais " stuff at times. Caul Scherzek, " Swiggy " Orchestra, ' 18, ' 19; Art Editor of " The Elms. " " Speech is great, hut silence is greater. " — Carlyle. Aha! the artist! Swiggie ' s favorite hobby was painting scenery and pictures of pretty girls. By force of habit be corresponded with a number of the fair sex, altho he never worried much about them. Neatness was his policy. Swiggy was the youngest in the Class, consequently . .John Sch.neideis Olympic, ' 15, ' 16; Beta, ' 16, ' 17, ' 18; Physical Instructor ' 17, ' 18; Football, ' 18; Philobibli- cum, ' 18. " Short and stout, and round about, and happii (IS could be. " — Anon. .John comes from the big city, and he liked to go home often to avoid the dry Elmhurst, Sunday afternoons. .John might have been small, but his ambition was great. He was a good half-back on the football field. His special pride was the stiffness of his beard, and anyone who came in contact with his face would readily admit that it was stiff. 7 tl ■ 5 ' i ] :IAKTIN,- SlHIiODEI- Orpheus, ' 16, ' 17, ' 18, ' 19; Sec ' y.-Treas., ' IT, ' 18; Librarian, ' 18, ' 19.

Well versed in all the mysteries of the solar system, f ' rinstance sun-spots, Martin ranks as Class Astronomer. Next to as- tronomy he liked to discuss the abstract subjects of idealism and materialism, and his German compos were characterized by true profundity of thought. We expect great things from him in the future. Wll.LI. M ScHWrOM .MEI!. " Bill " Basketball, ' 18, ' 19; Business Men ' s Club. " iS ' if down and feed, and weleome to our table. " — Shakespeare. The chef of cell 311. Bill specialized in chocolate pudding and pancakes and some of the odors which emanated from his room spoke well for his skill. Bill must have been taking a correspondence course in diplomacy judging from the frequent letters he received from Washington, D. C. He was a good basketball player. C.Mii. Wacimcu. " Inky " " A blush is beautiful, hut often incon- venient. " — Goldoni. " Had a good dinner Sunday. " — Inkie ' s reg- ular Monday morning exclamation when he came back from Bensenville, where he always had a good time. But he had a better time with the girls of Elmhurst. His aspirations were to play ojjposite Mary Pickford some day. Inky tried his hand at satirical poetry occasionally, but showed modesty by not having his |)oems jtublished. His ready smile won him many friends. ra(l HI History of the Class of 1919 Walter S. Mory, Historian With anus folded and features expressing deep meditation, we, the mem bers of the class of 1919, are standing on the stern of the ship of time. We are now about to finish another knot over the tempestuous sea of life, and as our eyes pensively gaze back over the course just traversed, we are assailed with mingled feelings of joy and grief; of joy, because we have the a-ssurance tlvat we have courageously braved the furious sea of life; of grief, l ecause we realize that we have at times deviated from our fixed course, when we possibly could have avoided it. But as we keep on following the trail left by the ship, our eyes suddenly rest upon a certain object, which in the distance resembles a mere speck, but the fact of its being a speck by no means dim- inishes its importance. This niinute object represents the embryo of the class of 1919. It is the beginning of the career of twenty-two enterprising young men who have selected Elmhurst a. their Alma Mater, from, which they intended to get their necessary preparation for the future battle of life. As soon as each one had sufficiently adapted himself to the rather abrupt change of conditions, the class as a whole immediately took intense interest in every phase of college activity. The principal studies on the .schedule were Algebra, German and English. Especially noteworthy was the classes ' spirited participation in all the sports. Even as Freshmen, everybody admired our aptitude, for which we became famous later on, both on the field and on the floor. As we were not accustomed to be away from home for any length of time, we soon experienced an acute longing for that spot, which is so dear to everyone of us. But in due time June was at hand, and all departed for home with a feeling of satisfaction that we had taken one step forward toward that most precious goal of our aspirations. The following fall we greeted Elmhurst as Sophomores, but instead of twenty-two we were now thirty-five. To our schedule were added History and Latin. In the line of sports we added still more fame to our already excellent reputation as athletes. With the feeling that we had progressed not only physically and mentally but also morally, we completed the second year of our sojourn at Elmhurst. After having thoroughly recuperated mentally from the straiuiof the pre- vious nine months ' work, we again entered the portals of our Alma Mater, but this time as Middlers. We immediately assembled and organized under the leadership of the following officers: Edwin AVolf, Pres.; George Sonne- l)orn. V-Pres. ; Theo. Mehl. Sec ' y. ; Fred Ewald. Treas.. Ervin Kocb, Historian. Page 20 1 We then selected as cla-ss colors, Navy Blue and Illinois Orange, and as class emblem, the one designed by Fred Ewald. It was decided to get a sweater with three orange stripes, which were to be arranged so that the middle stripe, Ihree inches in width, would be bordered on each side by two alternate blue and orange stripe ;, each being one inch in width. When our sweaters finally arrived you may imagine that they caused excitement, being different in style to any previous class sweater. In the same way our class pennants, designed by Herman Wagner, bore the marks of strict originality. The remaining months passed comparatively uneventful and in rapid succession. Thus Ave finished our third year at college. Next year we joyously greeted each other a.s Juniors. But. alas, no one knows when friendshij) may change into enmity. Neither did we, but we certainly experienced how suddenly it can happen. For no sooner had we settled down to our new tasks, when dissension entered our rante, and severed the class into two distinct factions. But we soon realized the truth of that famous maxim, " A house divided against itself cannot stand. " It was now clear to everybody that the class must by all means be unified. So a com- mittee wa.s selected for the purpose of drawing up a constitution, which, if sanctioned by both parties, would restore the unity of the class. The constitu- tion, when drawn up, was accepted unanimously, and so not only served the purpose, for which it was intended, but also tended to miake more strong and firm that bond of true fellowship, which alone can unite us into one progressive body. The following officers were elected under the newly framed constitution: Chas. Young, Pres., Robert Richter, V-Pres., Theo. Schlundt, Ree. Sec ' y, Emil Abele, Fin. Sec ' y, Armin Bizer, Treas., Walter Mory, Hist., and Hilmer Newmann, Sergeant at Arms. Next we decided to get our class rings. Everybody expressed satisfaction when the rings finally arrived. The rest of the year was utilized in making prepai-ations for ilie Junior-Senior banquet, which was to take place toward the end of the year. In order to pro- ceed systematically, connnittees Avere elected to make the nocesisary prepara- tions. A musical program was also arranged. From tlic musical talent of the class the requisite material was taken for the forniatini i nf a class orclicsli ' a, a vocal quartette, and a l)rass quartette. l ul iiinid Iboc in-cpai-atimi- we were interrupted by a scene of loai-ting, which will, vc bopc, fdi-cvcr liiiuci- in .)ur memories.

The addresses of both Presidents, the toasts and the extemporaneous speeches, all delivered with forensic eloquence, were deeply appreciated by everybody, most of all though the latter. In concluding the merry event, the whole aseembly arose and joined in singing the last stanza of that im- mor tal hymn, " Blessed Be the Tie that Binds. " A deep silence, almost bound- ing on eeriness, threw its mystical mantle over the whole scene as the last lingering strains gradually died out in the mtost remote parts of the festive hall. Thus the two classes outwardly parted, yet being inwardly bound by the inseijarable band of love and friendship. The next few weeks brought with them the close of the school-year. Thus we finished our fourth lap. At last the fond dreams, we had been fostering for four long years, had been fulfilled. We had reached the acme of our College life at Elmhurst. Briefly, we were Seniors. We courageously attacked the year ' s task before us, and in all earnestness attempted to meet the rec[uirements of our rather elaborate programme. As stipulated in our constitution our first concern was the new election of officers, which resulted as follows: Chas. Young, Pres.; George Sonneborn, V-Pres. ; Theo. Schlundt, Sec ' y ; A. Bizer, Treas. ; Pv. Richter, Fin. Sec ' y ; W. ] Iory. Hist. ; and Norbert Schultz, Serg. at Arms. Somehow our success in athletics was not as brilliant as it had been in former years. This, however, is by no means to be construed as a lack of spirit and interest on our part, for that is not at all the case. It is solely to be ascribed to the loss of some of our best athletes ; a fact to which History attaches infinitely more glory than ignominy. Yet allow us to cite one instance which plainly ' shows that ' our old fire of enterprise had by no means died down. In the ' beginning of the year the class unanimously voted down the publication of an annual. ' Somehow, tho, Ave soon discovered that the course we had taken had been very ill-advised. All thru the winter months the phantom of the annual, whom, as we thot, we had given the coup de grace, haunted our minds. The situation at last became " quite unbearable; so unbearable, in fact, that upon the 7th of Feb. the class decided upon the publication of the third volume of the " Elms: " a l:)Ooklet that we will learn to cherish lyiore and more when the present time shall exist but as a dim recollection within the enchanting realms of memory. Now that Ave have recalled the fond reminiscences of the past, let us proceed to the bow of the ship and see Avhat the future has in store for iis. The pmspect at first indeed seems dreary. The waves are more threatening, and the tempest more furious than it had been in the past. But armed Avith the experiences of the past, Ave feel that Ave are amply prepared for anything, that may be hid behind the misty curtains of the future. Page 22 A Juniors FiiiST Kow: H. Ahrkjns, A.

These words challenge every inclividual to live a life of principles, based upon the fundamental of a Christian character. It challenges us to lay down all we possess in wealth, happiness and reputation for our conviction of right and wrong. Yes, and if ever we are in such a dilemna, that we must choose between life and truth, it would be our victory to choose truth. For what is life that has been stained with untruthful- ness and deceit? It is like a blossom, which has been separated from its mother plant and it is left to wither and to lose its identity with those blossoms that are still attached to the stem, living and receiving life from their original source. The life that is tainted with a lie, is being severed from the source of life and will soon fade away and cease to be the same as that which was given to us by God. The Bible tell us, " God cannot lie, " and referring to this quotation Robert E. Speer says, " If God could lie. He would no longer be a Godlike God to us. " And from this we conclude, that God, who cannot lie, would not provide for falsehood in that being, which he has created after His image. Hence untruthfulness is a foreign quality to us and if we permit it to enter into our life, we are denying our true Father and are becoming children of him, who is the " father of lies. " Therefore we must be alert and determined to fight this our enemy with great courage and must not retreat; for to retreat is to betray the truth. We must ever charge him without fear. Let us ask ourselves this question, " If we are in the right, is there any object to fear? " There is but one and that is to do the wrong. There are many things in life that we fear and it requires courage and strength to overcome them. First of all, we find these obstacles in nature or they are made up of those animals, that look upon us as enemies and rivals, but the greatest obstacles are found in our own flesh. One animal fears and begrudges another animal that is of a different species, because instinct tells animals, that there is a constant struggle, between species for the survival of the fittest. In the same way man must fight for his existance and he does it; but this is not his chief problem. The beast merely exists, but man must live. This soul of man, that was given to him by God must be kept as pure as it was given to him and it should above all be used for noble purposes. Our life must be molded into a character and at the bottom of this must lie the truth. We have stated above, that falsehood and all the evils that are associated with it, are foreign to us and tend to desecrate our lives and to defile our bodies. Like the animals that fight another species for their existance, we must fight and destroy all those obstacles, which are detrimental to the development of a noble and Christian character. We must fight courageously for there is a great reward for him, who " fights a good fight. " The greatest reward is the victory itself, that one has upheld his principles tho the test was severe. Victory will give courage and confidence to the victor to continue to stand for principles and to strive for high ideals. Anyone will readily admit, that it no easy task to uphold the principles under all circumstances, but on the contrary that it is a difficult matter and requires moral courage and moral strength. But there is, it seems to me, a still greater problem, namely that of laying down the principles in life. There are many people, who declare that principle is impractical and cannot be applied. There may be such a thing as an impractical principle, but the criticism in many cases is unjust. The fault lies with the person, because he has not enough courage to adapt himself to any rigorous principles. Pacjc 26 2 oim His principles are such as require little or no sacrifice of earthly desire to uphold them ; or of such a nature that he may be able to justify his conduct suitable to the occasion. It is a simple affair to lay down principles such as have just been described. It is about as easily done as the principles are kept and lived. In deciding his guiding principles one must be honest with ones self and stand for the truth, as it is revealed to us in that model life, which was lived by Him, who should always be our pattern. We do not only find truth at the bottom of the religious and moral life, but also at the bottom of our social life; we find it in the scientific and the philosophical world. Truthfulness is what binds men together, so that it is possible, that society may be able to exist. The greatest detriment to society is a dishonest man, the hypocrite, generally known as a " two-faced " man. If men want to live and associate like human beings, men must be able to trust and believe their neighbors. You will observe, that in an ordinary conversation everybody wishes to hear the trath. Therefore, it is our duty to society, always to speak the truth regardless of the consequences. Let us consider just for a moment the relationship between a child and its parents. The innocent child is ever confident in its parents, because it has never been deceived by them. Supposing now that men know nothing of deceit and every man could look upon his brother without any suspicion whatsoever, what would our world look like? It would be an ideal; we would have true Christian brotherhood. But now it is impossible, because dishonesty has found room in the lives of men. Therefore it is our duty to society, to ever stand for truth and fight falsehood with courage. Dr. Faustus spent his entire life, seeking for wisdom, but when he arrived at old age and looked back upon his past life, he considered it an utter failure. Why? Just because he had spent a life-time in accumulating a large amount of knowledge and yet not the real truth. It is the determination to get the truth that urges men of great thinking capacities to investigate the phenomena of nature through science and phil- osophy. The thinking man wants nothing but the trutli; nothing else will gratify his desires. This proves that there is room in him for nothing but the truth and we should always help him to find it. We have spoken largely of principles and ideals. Truth is to us only an ideal: it is something, that we must strive for, but cannot attain. Man, as perfect as God created him, had no room for dishonesty; but it is said and claimed, that the finest constructed machines are the easiest to be broken. This was the case with man. The lie was the first foreign quality to enter into his heart and the foundation of a perfect character was forever destroyed. Seeing now, that peifection is imi)ossible, and that our ideals cannot be attained, we must turn for mercy to Mini, who alone is the truth. This requires no more than a strong faith in Christ, for Christianity is a religion of faith. This is necessary, because our Redeemer is the personification of truth, and we must accept Him, for what He has sftid of Himself as to Ills l)cing. In order to become His disciples we must follow His example and stand for ■Truth without fear. " SNAPSHOTS Athletics is a purely American contribution to the curriculum of our Colleges and Universities. We Americans, as firm adherents to the sage maxim, " A sound mind in a sound body, " realize that the soundness of mentality is to a very large degree due to the fitness of our physical being. Yet athletics is not alone a generator of mere physical power and ability, but also a powerful promoter of man ' s intellectual and moral faculties. If athletics tend to develop us solely upon the physical plane, it has missed its most vital purposes. To be of real value, athletics must be able to put our mentality so a supreme test, and, above all, inculcate in us an undaunted sense of fair play. If it effects this, it has fulfilled its mission. Athletics at Elmhurst has been remarkably successful this year, due to the efficiency of our athletes; an efficiency wrought by the untiring efforts of able managers and captains. Figuring on the average, the Elmhurst teams show a marked superiority over their opponents. From three out of four Soccer games, Elmhurst emerged with flying colors. Surely, not a bad record. In Basketball two out of four games played had been very successfully contested. The football and basketball seasons now take up their rigid positions in the realms of the past, while before us baseball and track loom up. Many of us are already entertain- ing fond anticipations of their future success. Why should we not? Contemplate for a moment the excellent material at hand for the formation of a baseball and track team, and you will discover that these are no vain Utopian musings. In the meantime, we are anxiously awaiting the advent of these two sports. The following are the winners of the " E " ; in Football, Geo. Sonneborn, V. Newman, A. Bizer, R. Heim, J. Schneider, .1.

For some time a demand has been ripe for additional studies at our institution, but lack of time forbade any enlargement of the curriculum. The cry was always: more work is impossible, because there is not enough time to do justice to all the subjects now required. Now we hope to add time. The Elmhurst course is to comprise six years instead of five. All plans are still tentative. Last year our Year Book published a plan embodying the prospects as we then saw them. Now that plan no longer satisfies our aspirations. Last year ' s plan clung to the old system of prescribed studies; the plans now under consideration introduce the elective principal. Besides, we are no longer content to plan for the next year only; we now are deliberating on a schedule which will provide for a progressive expansion that will require several years for completion. The Elmhurst of the future is not to be merely a preparatory school for Eden Theological Seminary, but is intended to offer, in addition to the equivalent of a first class high school course, all the training that any first class college offers in the first two years of its program. Elmhurst prefers to become a Junior College rather than a full college because it recognizes the fact that the value of an A.B. degree varies in accordance with the institution from which it is obtained. We wish to give our graduates a diploma which will be recognized by the gr eat universities of the country; Harvard, Yale, Chicago, Wash- ington, Princeton or any State University, as equivalent to two years of university training in the Department of Arts and Sciences; so that two years ' study at any one of the big universities shall entitle an Elmhurst graduate to his batchelor degree. Nego- tiations are already in progress with Washington University at St. Louis to get their endorsement of our plan, so that possibly an arrangement can be made that our graduates who enter Eden Seminary can, by taking some extra subjects at Washington University, receive their degree of Bachelor of Arts at Washington University at the same time that they get their diploma at Eden; and students not entering Eden may get their A. B. at any big university they desire. These are as yet only hopes and aspirations, but our goal is fixed and we feel confident that, within a reasonable time, it can be reached. There is a rival plan, originating outside of official circles which aims at making Elmhurst a full college, entitled to grant an A. B. degree on its own authority. Whether this plan anticipates that Eden will raise its entrance requirements until only Bachelors of Art will be admitted to the course at Eden, or whether Elmhurst Students will be given an opportunity to enter Eden after the completion of two years of college work, thus forfeiting their A.B. degree for the sake of Theology, has not bean set forth. In either case, we hope to increase our equipment. We hope to remodel and re-equip our Administration Building. We hope to get more classrooms and to provide each classroom with better furnishings and more complete teaching facilities. We hope to find some way of providing new dormitories. We hope to provide less crowded and better furnished study rooms. Tjibrary facilities ought to be increased and many other changes made. In short, we want an up-to-date institution, worthy of an ardent student-body and a devoted body of supporters. Page 32 ORGAN I ZA Elmhurst College, with all its studies and recreations, still finds time to devote to its various organizations. These societies lend a great deal to the building up of the spiritual, mental, physical, and social elements to student life. The Y. M. C. A. and the Athletic Association are recognized as the most essential. The motto of the " Y, " that of emphasizing the development of the Spirit, Mind, and Body, shows the value of this organization to the students. The Y. M. C. A. provide.s for a healthy recreation from the studies of the day in its Reading Room with all the popular magazines and the daily papers. Everyone who is a member of this society is entitled to free use of this room, which, with its abundant supply of literature and its cozy furnishings, affords a splendid retreat for the student seeking mental en.ioyment. Along with the Reading Room the " Y " runs game rooms which are open during the stormy winter months. In these can be found games of every kind, ranging from carom to chess. Very interesting are the checker and chess tournaments held during the open season, and many a fellow has mourned the loss of a wager when the results of these were announced. Often our Sunday afternoons are more or less a drag of time for us, and for this the " Y " provides Song Services, where selected songs are suing, and the program iilled out with vocal and instrumental solos. Under the auspices of the association we can hear lectui-es given by Secretaries and other vjrominent men as Dr. .Jordan. Dr. Robinson of McCormick Seminary, State Secretary Smith and many others that helped solve the problems that confront young men. The " Y " contributes a great deal to the molding of a man ' s character along Christian lines, and discourages existing evils whenever they are met. The entire student body is enrolled in its membership, therefore its influence reaches everyone attending l ]lnihurst. The Athletic Association is important in keeping the iihysical part of our make-uj) tit and in heightening the college spirit among the fellows. Our soccer team this year was something out of the ordinary as was shown by the healthy and organized yelling done at the games. The football eleven certainly deserve credit. Basketball. . h! honu before the Christmas vacation came our teams were ])ract icing i)asses and si ' ;nals. in short were being coached by their manager for their opening game. Consideriiiii the average weight per man, our five were a splendid bunch. In our victories and defeats which are enumerated elsewhcri ' in this book, we broken cxeu with niir opi)nn( ' uts. Baseball iirositects are very encouraging, and there is no leason to lielicvc that Elmhurst will not put out as eood a team this year as it ever has done in the past.

Music always plays an important part in college life, and Elmhurst is no exception to the rule. Every form of Music, from Jazz to Grand Opera is known, and, sad to say, occasionally tried by the average student, sometimes with disastrous results. Every day at Elmhurst begins and ends with music, for the Chajjel services are always made impressive by the singing of the beautiful old chorals and inspiring- hymns, to the accompaniment of the pipe-organ. But singing in Chaiiel services is by no means all the music there is in Elmhurst. It is not necessary to mention the " disorganized " music, which is always present wherever and whenever four or five fellows congregate in one room during free time also occasional other times). That generally is in the form of spontaneous outbursts, and subject to the changes of mood of the would- be Carusos. But with the various musical organizations, it is a different matter. The choa-us which consists of the three upper classes, and the orchestra, are under the direction of Professor C. Stanger. Both the chorus and the orchestra have regular practice hours. The other organizations are all under the leadership of students. The band, which is as good this year as any Elmhurst ever had, was directed by Theodore Schlundt. His musical ability raised this organization to a high degree of proficiency, and it was often in demand when celebrations took jilace in Elmhurst, for instance on November 11th, when the Armistice was signed. The success of the Octette was also due to Schlundt. The biggest thing that the Octette did this year, was to go to Chicago and play in one of the large churches there, as an advertisement for the 1919 Elms. Since a piano was moved into the dining hall, uiusic at dinner and supper is a common thing. Either the Octette plays some lively selections (real .lazz sometimes), or the Vocal Quartette, better known as the Elmhurst Lyrics, delights everyone with their coon songs. No one will ever forget the old favorite. " Once there was a baby coon way down in South Car ' lina, " and as often as it was sung, it never failed to pro- voke mirth when Geib would slide down the scale with his " Do, do, do, do. " When something special hapi)ened the Brass Quartette rendered a few selections, lint the occasion had to be very special because the repertory of this miniature l)and seemed to be very limited. When it did play however, they always met with apiiroval. At other times, quartettes, l)oth vocal and instrumenlal are lornicd lint i;cncTall, disband after a few hours of practice, either upon request or demand. The Orpheus is another organization which nnist be mentioned. It was also under the leadership of Theodore Schlundt in the past year. This glee club is even more shy in rendering st lections than the Brass Quaitette. and the writer only remembers hearing them sing once.

" The first traclc meet of the season, which was with Wheaton College, was one of the most thrilling events which ever took place on the Athletic Field. After this meet, which naturally was won by Elmhurst, spirits for Track ran high anid other meets which have been scheduled, are bound to be still greater successes. One of the lower class-men especially, surprises everyone l)y his speed and endurance. The Schiller Literary Society is another organization valuable in developing presence of mind in appearing before an audience. In its numerous programs, vaudeville sketches, readings and musical selections are given. The preliminaries for an elocu- tion contest scheduled for May 3rd, and an oratorical contest on April 26th, are now under way. Undoubtedly the greatest feature of this year was the presentation of Schiller ' s " William Tell, " given on the evening of February 28th. This was a decided success and showed that Elmhurst is not lacking in material for dramatics. The College Library is worthy of mention. Every student has the privilege of using any of the 4,500 volumes on the shelves. An efficient library force is in charge, under the direction of Prof. ,T. Schmale. Thru the Mission Society, the students are kept in touch with the mission fields of India. Japan and Africa, and also the Home Mission stations of our Synod. Several interesting lectures were given by natives of .Japan, Africa and China. Stereopticon lectures on the Mission fields and their activities, proved to be both entertaining and instructive. Recently a new organization has been formed, the Elmhurst College Business Men ' s Club. All students who handle any line of business in the College can become members, and the Club protects the interest of the individual firms and establishes a standard of prices. All these organizations, practically wholly independent of outside assistance, show that Elmhurst is a wide-awake College, where the students are given every opportunity to make their five years of college life happy.

Masonic Temple Chicago, 111. Room 611 SAFE INVESTMENTS Consisting of First Mortgages secured by Chicago and Suburban Real Estate. These loans are made for a term not exceeding five years and net the investor not less than 5 ' , interest, payable half-yearly. By investing money in this manner a definite income is assured. Investments of this kind should appeal particularly to those who are not in a position or do not care to. invest their money themselves, but prefer to avail themselves of the services of an experienced and reliable agent. Also those who cannot afford to assume any risk and must consider security as the first requisite. Purchasers of Mortgages, such as I offer, receive all necessary papers, and the interest is collected by me and remitted every six months. In this manner savings can be invested safely at the highest rate of interest commensurate with sound security and without trouble and inconvenience. The titles to the properties on which loans are made are guaranteed by the Chicago Title and Trust Company. During the twenty-eight years that I have ' been in this business no one has ever lost by investing in my First Mortgages. These Mortgages are to be had in various sums from $200.00 upwards. Write me how much money you desire to invest and I will send you a list of Mortgages. Any further information will be cheerfully furnished Correspondence in German or English ARTHUR C.
