On the whole, precedent has been used as a guide in arranging mate- rial ; but in numerous j laces we have deviated from the beaten path and added new features which we trust will yield pleasant surprises to our readers. In selecting our material, and in determining its fitness or unfitness for print, w e have applied the test of memory value. Just as at sunset, some window in Old Main catches the crimson light and imprisons it, so as we look back across the years msiy we find imprisoned in the pages of this book, those things which have made the hours at Elmhurst precious.

FAREWELL FAIR ELM HURST • THE 19 1 3 CLASS SONG By Paul Winger ' 13 and Fred Daries ' 13 E ' re these loved bonds we sever, Classic Halls, a last adieu! May you be the seat of knowledge. Moulding men the ages through! Teachers, at whose feet we learned. Kind farewell to you we bring; School-mates, who have shared cur duties. Fond good-bye we sadly sing. Chorus: Elmhurst thy sons love thy wafted banner, Yearn to live once more through those great days. Thou, our pride, shalt never be forgotten, Elmhurst fair, loudly we sing thy praise. Now farewell, cool shaded nooks of Elmhurst! Sad farewell, sweet joys and halcyon days! As the ivy upward climbeth, Gath ' ring strength from year to year. So will mem ' ry cling more firmly As we carve out our career. To your precepts high and lofty. Your ideal that we ' ll guard well. Elmhurst proud, our broad foundation. Alma Mater, dear, farewell! 26 27 THE HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 19 2 7 THE CLASS OF ' 27, nine in number, is glad tliat it is the largest class to be graduated as " Bachelors " by Elmhurst College, but it chooses to hold this distinction for one year only. It hopes that the Class of ' 28 will be more in number. In 1924, we as Freshmen numbered 45 men. The possibility and capability of the class was shown when, as Freshmen, they were brave enough to publish that year ' s annual on their own initiative and responsibility. The versatility and ability of our class members was shown in all the college activities, both curricular and extra-curricular. In scholarship, we believe, we stand with the best. In activities we were represented in all phases. Our athletes held captain- cies, earned letters, and were recipients of " Y " medals. Many of our members held presidencies of various activities. During the four years we were represented as Presidents of: Y. M. C. A., Schiller Society, Glee Club, Student Union, Inter- national Relations Club, as Editors of both the Elm Bark and Elms, and Business Managers of the Glee Club and Elms. After being graduated from the Junior College, many of our classmates entered Eden to pursue their theological studies. Nine of us returned for the Junior and Senior years. As a Senior Class the present group has enjoyed a unique series of class meet- ings. Every month brought a " feed " by the " round robin " system. With " Sheik " Schultz to lead things, good times and real fellowship were had at each meeting. CLASS OFFICERS Harold P. Schultz Henry G. Kroehler Carl Marquardt Edward Volle Earl Klein Paul Peters . President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Historian Sergeant-at-A rms 2S VERGIL F. DUENSING Nebraska City, Nebraska Chemistry Verge was our cheer dispenser. Wherever a group of fellows were congregated his hearty laugh and mile long smile were the prominent features. His pleasing personality won for him friendship with all whom he met. The Glee Club found him to be a valuable asset for after a concert Verge was sure to have made some acquaintance which would help the Club to secure future concerts. Verge was one of the group who took Horace Greeley ' s advice and went West and attended Stanford University. He ranked high in scholar- ship, his particular hobby being Chemistry. We feel sure that some day we shall hear of a new theory entitled " Duensing ' s Hypothesis " . The best of luck to -ou in your endeavors. Verge. ERWIN J. GOEBEL Des Plaines, Illinois Social Sciences Erv came to us four years ago and ever since we have felt his presence on the campus — by his words and by his deeds. When a situation called for anj ' thing of a business nature he delivered the goods as is evidenced by his three years as business manager of the Glee Club. He was always a good comrade and viewed the passing with a keen eye and a broadening charity. The first semester of his Senior year was spent in sunny California where he attended Stanford University. His ambition: to do the very best in an -thing he attempted; his weakness: who knows unless it could be the fairer sex. We are anticipating big things from this serious faced individual and do not expect to be disappointed. More power to you. 29 OTTO HILLE Wadesville, Indiana English One never knew iust what that small head situated so high in the air would expose. Oc- casionally at our class socials, it would demons- trate real wit humor. From his scholastic standing one would judge that his brains were hard at work. Otto spent a year at Eden Theological Seminary before taking his Senior work here, so we never knew him as a classmate until last Fall. Since then we have been happy to have him with us. He always works hard and even then finds a little time for foolishness. We shall remember him as a ready friend and as exceedingly hard to beat at tennis. EARL E. KLEIN New Orleans, Louisiana Sociology Shortly after arriving on the campus Earl began his career of business. The outcome of it was that he became a great little organizer who has influenced the whole student body. He is the founder of the business known as the " Elmhurst Letter Service " . " Boji is constantly looking thru the business man ' s glasses and is trying to substantiate things from a practical viewpoint. Boji ' s wit and humor was enjoyed in the class sessions, class meetings, in the class room and on the campus. His " Amen " was the final word, for whenever his " Amen " was heard we felt confident that we were going in the right direction. 30 HENRY G. KROEHLER Henderson, Minnesota Sociology Hanks great asset lay in his capacity for work. During his three and one-half years with us, he was very active in extra curricular activities and stood high in class work. He has contributed to the existing and former organizations, sometimes in amazing pro- portions. A distinction, which nigh an achieve- ment, he earned when he was simultaneously the editor of the Elms and the Elm Bark. In spite of his activities he found time for pressing social requirements. It cannot be said that women were his weakness — rather just " one " . Hanks absence from the campus was felt the last semester of this year when he accepted a teaching position in Elgin, Illinois, after having completed his academic work in three and one- half years. A man with ideals and convictions, ready to back them in speech or action.- To be sure the world will be waiting for this " son rise " . CARL MARQUARDT St. Joseph, Michigan Chemistry Just from looking at him you can see that he is a student of no mean ability, which conclusion is further upheld by the fact that he made the grade in three years. Sure — he ' s from the Wolverine state and if you ever tried to knock his state you were in for a real argument. Base- ball is his hobby and a medico his ambition. Naturally chemistr}- and biology occupied much of his time and the terminology he learned there colored much of his conversation. Incidentally, tho rather quiet and unassuming, he did make quite a hit with the girls for we have heard of his conquests in that realm of feminiuit ' . Nevertheless he achieves his purpose and as an M.D. — well — keep an eye on liim. PAUL GH. PETERS Howard City, A ' lichigan English " Pete " , the foremost athlete in our class; an all letter man who accumulated more " E ' s " than any one in school. He was a real sports- man, doing all with an honesty and sincerity of purpose. If fate was against him, he lost with the self satisfaction of having done his level best. " Pete " was also quite chummy, and even so would not steer clear of a tasty argument tho it ranged from a " finesse in bridge " to " tweaking somebody ' s nose in a football melee " . He was always a diligent worker, combining affability with an ability that caused him to be well liked by all. He is a great deal responsible for making the Library what it now is. HAROLD P. SCHULTZ St. Louis, Missouri English Behold everyones smiling friend from old Mizzou. He has an enviable record as one ever happy and spreading joy with his familiar laughter, and can be surely counted on to spring new or antiquated jokes. But the one thing against " Shiek " is that he comes from that baseball crazy town, the hofne of the Cardinals. Nevertheless they are champions and he is of the same calibre. Much credit for the organization and success- ful continuation of the International Relations Club is due to him, its president. During his four years at Elmhurst he has been an ardent supporter and worker for every constructive and administrative enterprise, always willing to give of his ability and substance. Hats oiT to our class president, the memory of whom shall live long in our hearts. 32 EDWARD VOLLE Freelinville, Indiana English Being from Indiana we suspect that he will boast less about his home state, now that she has lost her reputation in basketball. But Voile was always hopeful; he is a born optimist of fine sensibilities. He would be a friend to all, refusing to take seriously anyone that would treat him otherwise than a friend. Through persistent effort he has now earned his diploma. The same effort should lead him over the uncertain paths of the future. 33 34 THE CLASS OF 1928 IN WRITING THE history of any college class, one may reiterate things previously said, commend the merits of the individual student and of the class as a whole, overlook all shortcomings, and create a picture obviously misleading and absurd. Yet the primary purpose of a class history must plainly be that of presenting a general resume of the particular academic unit which is often social as well as academic. The Class of ' 28 began its career as Freshmen, when Dr. Niebuhr accepted the official seat as president of the institution. This group has gradually diminished to seventeen members. Two of the original members have left this supposedly ill-ordered existence and entered into that something about which we can but make scanty efforts of speculation. Four more of its members have preferred the at- mosphere created by a young lady, and have begun to live a new life about which most students theoretically know little of. In the three years existence of the class it has been quite active in extra-cur- ricular activities such as the Glee Club, Quartette, dramatics, debating, and student executive work; but it has been deficient in the realms of sports. Its chief pride, however, is in the standard of scholastic work which it has maintained as a whole. When the regime of an institution, whether it be civic or scholastic in nature, changes, particular developments which invariably follow, give to that transition a prominent place in the history of its order. So when Dr. Niebuhr became Presi- dent of Elmhurst College, the change in the administration of the institution was great enough to mark that particular occurrence as one of great importance in its development. In this atmosphere the Class of ' 28 was born and sought to develop it, to widen out, and to be introduced to peculiar phenomena of which it had not been conscious before. Now at the end of three years, this group fnds itself the cannon fodder of a new enterprise in that it is to be the subject of experiment for the new six year program for theological students. The majority of its members will probably find itself at Eden next year; a few of its members plan to study, elsewhere. If only the nucleus of the class exists at present, then merely the nucleus will return next year. Every class must come to the realization that it is not the subject of the general onward movement but an almost infinitesimal part of that movement. But as the parts make up the whole, so the progress of the parts affect the perfection of the whole. The calibre of the Class of ' 28 is such that Elmhurst may be pr oud of; and such that it will make its valuable contribution to the endless striving toward the unattainable. Carl Schmidt. CLASS OFFICERS P. J. SoNDEREGGER President Carl Schmidt ..... Secretary-Treasurer 36 ELMHURST LOYALTY SONG By Fred Beutler ' 12 and Fred Hilligardt ' 12 Tall commanding and beautiful Doth the tree of knowledge stand, In nature ' s fairest garden The Eden of our land. Her fruits so sweet and plentiful, The true, may taste alone. Then come our troth to thee we ' ll pledge. In a strong and manly tone. Chorus : Pride of our fathers in bygone days, Elmhurst. thy sons will sing thy praise. Oh we ' ll strive for thy glory, shouting thy fame. Till skies and fields repeat thy name. Wave the blue and the white on high. Hold it there ' fore the eyes of the world Raise it high above dishonor To our applause unfurled. True heroes we ' ll fight for thy victory In field, in class-room or hall. For Elmhurst, dear Elmhurst we ' ll raise the cry. It ' s blue and it ' s white all over. 38 THE CLASS OF 1929 THE SOPHOMORES entered Elmhurst College in the fall of 1925, as the largest Freshman College Class in the history of the institution. About one- half of the 80 who entered came to Elmhurst for the first time; the remainder entered from the Academy. With them the beginnings of a Greater Elmhurst were being realized. This expansion was made evident in all branches; not only was the Class of ' 29 outstanding in scholastic achievements, but it was also prominent in all extra-curricular activities, it made its influence felt in football, baseball, and tennis. The Class of ' 29 was well represented in the Glee Club. Members of the Class were prominent on the staffs of the student publications such as the Elm Bark and the Elms. The influence of the Class was further felt in such organiza- tions as the Masque and Buskin, the International Relations Club, the . M. C. A., and various other campus activities. The Class of ' 29 -returned in September, 1926, with somewhat thinned ranks, but with great determination to more firmly establish the traditions of the school. The Class, together with the upper classes, presented the Freshmen with their green caps, at the same time administering advice and introducing the newcomers to the traditions of the school. One of the outstanding events of the year was the class rush on Homecoming Day, which was centered around the old " sauer-kraut " barrel. In this event the upper classmen were victorious and the Freshmen continued to wear their green caps for a few weeks longer. However, the spirit of friendliness continued to prevail between the classes. As Sophomores, the Class of ' 29 again took a large part in all of the extra- curricular activities not alone in athletics, in which they continued to hold their prominent place, but in other activities as well. They furnished most of the Elm Bark stafiF, including the editor; and several members of the Elms staflF, of wh ch they also furnished the editor. The nucleus of the Glee Club was again furnished by the Class of ' 29. The Class engaged in several intramural basketball games during the season. Moreover, the Class was quite prominent in the work for the New Gymnasium. The Class has furnished leaders in all the extra-curricular activities of the school. As Sophomores, the Class was subjected to additional work in their more advanced courses. But this increased intellectual burden, together with the manifold extra-curricular activities, served merely to stimulate the Class to greater eiTorts, and this resulted in a correspondingly greater training for the still bigger things of life. Some of the Class will be graduated from the Junior College and conclude their college career, but most of the Class will return to carry on the great work for their dear Alma Mater. The Class, although it numbers but 52, is the largest Sophomore Class that has ever attended Elmhurst College. CLASS OFFICERS Herbert J.

" Wilmar was born one fine August morning about twenty years ago. The event was a partnership proposition as Hilmar was in on it too. Wilmar ' s invariable friendliness and his warm-hearted readiness to help have won him many friends. Theodore Haefele . St. Louis, Mo. " Ted " " Come what come may, all subjects zvere bent his way. " Glee Club ' 25, ' 26. To study hard and make his grades was Ted ' s first ambition. But when he hit chemistry he got stuck but hasn ' t stopped as yet. But aside from all that, to play jazz better than Paul Ash and to play better pinochle are his desires. Waldemar Hille . Wadesville, Ind. " Husky " " Of all the arts, great music is the art To raise the soul above all earthly storms. " Glee Club ' 25, ' 26. Patience, talent, and a critical mind help to make a good musician and student.

Knicker wasn ' t hard to find in spite of the fact you couldn ' t hear him. He was always in room 312 making an earnest attempt to keep his ears from pro- truding too far. Yes, it was radio. Possibly his silence found expression in the unseen voices of the air. Who knows.? Rudolph Kalwitz . . Chilton. Wis. " Rudy " ' -l true word needs no oath.

Although you wouldn ' t suspect it he is a shiek of the first order. He is a good student and a willing friend. His excellent tenor voice made him valuable on the Glee Club.

Green represents hope— hope reenforced by reserve, determination, courage, and ability. We glory that we are Freshmen — carefree when we have occasion to be so; alert and serious when time requires those characteristics; helpful when trodden upon by our sophisticated superiors; the butt of a joke when an upper classman shows his ignorance. In spite of the handicaps imposed upon us by our dignified superiors, we have nothing to worry about, nor anything to complain about. Last September twenty-seven fellows were on this campus for the first time. They acted awkward, frightened, and thoroughly embarrassed; but soon these fellows felt at home. Eighteen other fellows, having been here before, were well acquainted with the college life of Elmhurst. These men make up the Class of ' 30. They hail from different parts of the country, which fact is one reason for the great interest the fellows show in one another. The ability of the Freshman Class can not be doubted. The Freshmen have contributed to athletics, scholastics, and the social life. Eight members pf the Football team were Freshmen. The efficiency of the Freshman players contributed to the success of this year ' s football season. Several fellows of the class are very good material for a basketball team. This year ' s baseball team will include several " crack " Freshman players. The Class of ' 30 also partakes in other activities. Freshmen are active members of the Glee Club, Orchestra, Masque and Buskin, International Relations Club. Student Union, and the Elm Bark Staff. Evidently the Freshmen have caused their superiors to recognize their importance. We, the Freshmen, gladly submitted to the rulings of our superiors. We wore our " greens " as required, until we were in danger of freezirtg our ears. We took part in the feats presented on Homecoming Day. The " Sauer-kraut Rush " was an interesting event of the day. We calmly submitted to the " paddle " . Even Coach Hale, who has the opinion that all Freshmen are fit only to wear skirts, admired the courageous spirit of the Freshies. We, the members of the Class of ' 30, realize the hardships we have imposed upon our untiring faculty. We wish to express our hearty appreciation for their cooperation and help. We are indeed sorry to know that Dr. Niebuhr and various other members of our Faculty will not be with us throughout our college career. We extend to them our hearty wishes for success and God ' s blessings. CLASS OFFICERS Edwin Beier . . , President Reinhardt Schroedel .... rice-President Edward Hoffman ...... Secretary Rudolph Buescher Treasurer Robert Young Sergeant-at-Arms Carl Kraenzel Historian 52 54 THE STUDENT UNION THE STUDENT UNION, which is the organized student body of Elmhurst College and Elmhurst Academy, is now entering its third year of usefulness as an expression of a form of campus institution needed at Elmhurst to afford its group members a medium for opinion and action. It purposes to undertake and promote enterprises that serve the group, make for better men, and for a better Elmhurst College. It does not function as a student council and its heads are not vested with judicial and legislative powers, but they are expected to create attitudes through activities entrusted to their direction. The Student Union does not realize its existence as an entity against a more powerful campus entity, the faculty and administrative officers of the school, but rather as a part of an organic means working for common ends. In relation- ships with the school directors headed by President Niebuhr, its leaders have felt themselves to lose consciousness of differences of office and awaken to a oneness of purpose. In such a manner of cooperation the athletics, the social, the extra- curricular, and the ethical enterprises are promoted on the Elmhurst campus. The Student Union during the past year has acquired a number of rooms m the Music House Building and furnished them as reading and social rooms. These rooms are eauipped with comfortable furniture and various games and are supplied with the daily newspapers and current magazines of humor and fiction. In this building is housed the Student Union Cooperative Store. The publications of the Union, the Elms and the Elm Bark, have their offices in the building, as does a barber shop, and the Elmhurst Letter Service. The Employment Bureau will likely open an office in the building. This bureau has acted as an agent in securing and distributing jobs to students who filed application. Trips of social and educational nature to a number of Chicago ' s largest centers of industry have been sponsored by the Union Social Enterprise Conimittee. This same committee promotes the Freshmen initiation, the homecoming, the entertainment of the Evangelical Clubs of Chicago ' s universities, and the spnng circus-birthday party. Pressing rooms in each dormitory are equipped by the Union Service Com- mittees with irons and other facilities that make such rooms a complete utility to students. The student Gymnasium Campaign, which resulted in gifts totaling ten thous- and dollars, was worked out by a committee of Student Union members. The great Elmhurst Service Conference plans, while in the embryonic stage, were approved by the Union Executive " Committee, and its officers worked with those of the Y. M. C. A. to make the conference successful. 56 57 THE 1927 ELMS THE 1927 ELMS represents the ninth attempt of the students of Elmhurst College to publish an annual. Because of a large def cit which last year ' s issue encountered, it was at f rst doubtful whether or not a year-book would be published this year. The Editor and Business Staff were finally elected about the time the f rst semester was drawing to a close. The entire staff was completed at the be- ginning of the second semester. Two months later the copy was completed and the book was on the press. Our readers will note several changes which the editor saw fit to introduce. The most noteworthy is the division of the volume into three separate sections, each representing one of the three major departments. This was done, because of the confusion which usually results when people not intimately acquainted with our school system page through the book. Much more emphasis has been placed on picture material at the expense of literary material. Pictures are of much more memory value. In order to make our sections distinct we have partitioned them off with tinted division pages. The reduced art work on these pages is a saving in expense and at once, attractive We take especial pride in our snap shots distributed throughout the book. This is the f rst year, as far as we know, that a staff photographer has been added. For the collection of these snaps we are greatly indebted to Otto Nitz. In addition, there are many minor innovations, each calculated to add its zest to the spirit of the whole. In conclusion, we would like to thank our associates and other individuals, especially Rev. Th Mayer, for their kind assistance in Issuing this volume. THE STAFF. 58 THE ELM BARK EARLY IN THE FALL of 1920 the growing realization of the need of a college publication crystallized into action, and about October the 4th the first " Elm Bark " came oflF the press. Thereafter it was published bi-weekly by the Y. M. C. A., and was in the nature of a eight page pamphlet of two columns to a page. The " Elm Bark " underwent the periods of struggle and evolution which are usual to any new proposition but it came through, all the better and stronger for them. The first radical change was made in 1922 when the paper was given its present form. The size was somewhat increased, the number of pages was reduced, and the two columns per page gave place to four. By 1925 the " Bark " had become firmly enough established to enable it to sever its connection with the Y. M. C. A. and it became an independent institution. The following fall it began to be published weekly instead of bi-weekly. The " Bark " has slowly but persistently gained strength throughout its development and now has a circulation of about five hundred and is on a firm financial basis. Its place in the lives of the students is by no means a small one. It is the hope and aim of the present staff to give the college a still better newspaper within the next year. The plans include an increase in size of the sheet and in the number of pages, and also a re- organization of the form into five columns. THE STAFF (From left to right) Rudolf Priepke . Herbert ] .

C. A. spells Elmhurst Service Conference. The conference, held March 27-29, marked the high point in the school year. Classes were suspended and all attention focused on the great event. The speakers were composed of some of America ' s biggest leaders in the field of Social Christian- ity, besides representatives of England and China. The present day social and re- ligious conditions were analysed clearly and frankly, and with the analysis went a challenge for service in helping to improve conditions. The attractive and vital addresses of the speakers, and the absorbing interest of the students in considering the subjects presented, made the conference an obvious success. But the success of the conference itself does not insure its ultimate worth, and only the activities of the student body in the future can decide its real value. The purpose of the " Y " as a student organization is to present to the students as many means as possible for contact with leaders and with the constructive social and religious activities of the outside world, and to furnish means of expres- sion for the students themselves, such as Gospel Team work, discussion groups, work in churches, as teaching a Sunday School class, etc. This year the Gospel teams have made quite a few trips in and around Chicago presenting programs for Young People ' s Societies. Besides the helpful experience this work affords the team members, it allows them many opportunities for pleasant social affairs and good fellowship. Another valuable phase of the year ' s activities were the vocational discussions, in which men of various professions (ministry, law, pedagogy, journalism, medicine) presented some side-lights of their work, both the good and bad factors, and afterwards answered questions of the students. It must be confessed that the work has been quite limited this year. But we of the College " Y " believe in the organization and its value, and are resolved to make the work of the future interesting, vital, and compelling, and of such a scope that will permit the participation of a large number of the student body.

Academy 62 |©a7 ELMS THE MASQUE AND BUSKIN THE MASQUE AND BUSKIN has met the dramatic interests and needs of its members quite eff ciently during the past year. The Club gave opportu- nity for expression not only on the stage, but also in its peppy semi-monthly meetings. The big event of the year was the annual fall play, " You and I , which was staged under the direction of Miss Hazel Stevens of the School of Music. The feminine roles were taken by the Misses Hollinger, Kennedy, and Bosworth of Elmhurst, each of whom has had considerable experience on the stage. The cast of " You and I " was the first Elmhurst cast to give a production away from Elmhurst and vicinity. Through the efforts of Stoerker and Moore the play was carried to St. Louis on November 26, where it met with great success. In the spring three one-act plays were presented at St. Peter ' s Parish Hall. Only one of the plays was confined to club members; the other plays were thrown open to the student body. The purpose of the spring activities was to give a larger number of men an opportunity to show their ability, and to discover new material for the annual big event, the fall play. For those members who did not take part in the production of the plays the meetings were of greater significance. During the last year the Masque and Buskin followed the Chicago plays very closely. Both actors and dramas were discussed with animation. Further interest in the theater was stimulated by sending two members at a time to an outstanding play and having them report on the same at the following meeting. The meetings were always of a social nature, and as a result the members were enthusiastic. THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB is the newest organization on the campus, the year 1926-1927 being the first complete year of its existence. The purpose of the Club is to promote an interest in international events on the campus, to study and discuss these events, and to foster an attitude of good will and fair play towards all nations. During the past year the Club met semi-monthly and many of the meetings proved interesting and helpful. Such problems as the Nicaraguan and Chinese situations were discussed in detail. The members profited greatly by these analyses. Each member is given the privilege to lead the group in discussions, thereby giving the members opportunities for self-expression which promote the ability for leadership. In addition to the discussion groups the Club also sponsors social functions which tend to promote a feeling of fellowship among its members The Club is looking forward to the future and hopes to grow and to be a leading organization of the " Greater Elmhurst College " .

Grunwaldt. 66 t ATHLETICS AT ELM HURST " Sixteen miles from old Chicago Is a college known to all; Though its specialty is study Its teams surely play football. " These opening lines of one of our Football songs strikes the keynote in the attitude towards Athletics and their place in the curriculum at Elmhurst. Elm- hurst is chiefly a school for study, but it does not overlook the vital extra-curri- cular activities. Athletics are an integral part of the school life. The " Athletic Ideal " is expressed in another verse of one of our Football songs: " Elmhurst teams are never lacking, All through the game they fight. Fight for the only colors. The Blue and White. " As this song implies, Elmhurst teams in all sports receive good coaching, and the ideal of clean sportsmanship supercedes the idea of merely winning. The following pages will tell an interesting story of a successful Athletic Program for the year 1926-27. This introductory word on Athletics in general would not be complete without mentioning a word about those who support athletics from the sidelines. I have stated that the Athletic Ideal demands good coaching, clean sportsmanship, and now I say that our Ideal calls for loyal support from the entire student body. Elmhurst is unanimous in its support of Athletics. Another song expresses this: " Two hundred strong we raise our song Elmhurst for thee. Oh!

II Aurora College at Elmhurst (Homecoming Dayj 71 Crane College 6 Elmhurst College 0 The first game of t he 1926 season was with Crane College of Chicago, and was played on the York Community High School field on September twenty-fifth. Crane sent an eligibility list containing sixty-five names, and brought forty-odd players along. Crane ' s coach said he had the pick of all the Chicago high schools on his squad; it was far better than any squad Crane had ever brought to Elmhurst before. The Elmhurst team made plenty of first downs, but could not bring the ball close enough to the goal line. Crane took advantage of a momentary lapse and scored a touchdown after a thrilling sixty-five yard run. The Morton team came to Elmhurst on October second, and demonstrated within a few minutes after the initial whistle that they were nothing like the fine team that lost to the Elmhurst eleven of 1925 by the scant margin of 14-13. Elm- hurst played defensive football all during the second half after scoring four touch- downs in the first half. Captain Langhorst made two touchdowns, Barth one, and Stoll one. The game was remarkably clean. Elgin College 13 Elmhurst College 0 Elgin College was played in the Elgin College Stadium on Friday, October eighth. Elgin attempted many end runs, a majority of which were ground-gainers, and finally worked a trick forward pass to their quarterback in the first quarter that resulted in a touchdown and a goal after touchdown. From then on the game was a battle. Halfback Barth was injured, and his place taken by Buescher who played a fine defensive game. Elmhurst started a drive in the fourth quarter that swept Elgin back in the shadow of their goal posts, but the ball was fumbled and an Elgin player ran ninety-odd yards for the second touchdown. The American College of Physical Education of Chicago came to Elmhurst on Saturday, October fifteenth, with a heavy team. They fumbled on their thirty-yard line twice in the game, in the first and in the third quarters, and both fumbles were recovered by Elmhurst and smashed over for touchdowns. " Spear- heads " and ofT-tackle slants did the work in this game. Captain Langhorst made both touchdowns and place-kicked both goals. Elmhurst College 12 St. Bede College 10 Homecoming Day was celebrated by a victor} ' over St. Bede College of Peru, Illinois, on October twenty-third. A trick play that had been practiced for weeks was uncovered on the third play of the game, and after receiving a twenty-five yard pass from Langhorst, Bierbaum ran seventy yards for a touchdown. The goal after touchdown was missed. The play was even until the last minutes of the half, when a St. Bede back drop-kicked a field goal from the twenty-yard line. Right Guard Wendland was found injured at the intermission and Ott took his place. Elmhurst College 25 Morton College 0 Elmhurst College 14 Am. Coll. Phy. Ed. 0 72 73 Elmhurst handled the kick-off of the second half very poorly, and were forced to put the ball in play on their one-yard line. The resulting Elmhurst punt was against the wind, and was caught on the thirty-five yard line. St. Bede went to work with a will and crashed the ball straight down the field to the one yard line. The Elmhurst line fought like tigers, but could not keep the touchdown from being made. The goal was kicked. Score. St. Bede lo, Elmhurst 6. A few minutes later old " Forward Pass Number Six " was thrown by Langhorst to Left End Bierbaum, and he juggled it a few juggles and then ran a few yards for the win- ning touchdown. The game was more interesting than the famous Wheaton game of 1925, but did not have the traditional rivalry attached. De Kalb College 32 Elmhurst College 0 Three hard games in three weeks were too many for Elmhurst when they journeyed to DeKalb on Saturday, October thirtieth. The Elmhurst play was extremely miserable during the first half, and at least nine-tenths of the " boners " of football were attempted. A rather silent review of the dreadful first half score — twenty-six points — during the intermission helped bring the team out of the slump, and the second half was as good football as has ever been played. DeKalb was a little too strong for us, but played a fast, clean game. Elmhurst College 36 Concordia College 0 The DeKalb game was tucked away into the " soonest forgotten-soonest mended locker " , and the team set to with a will to prepare for the game with Concordia. The faithful bus took the team to Oak Park on Saturday, November sixth, and a fine crowd from Elmhurst journeyed via train, auto, bicycle, and foot. Concordia trotted out thirty-two stalwarts to meet Elmhurst ' s nineteen eligibles, but good squads are sometimes small squads. Herb. Barth annexed four touch- downs, and Langhorst galloped over the line with two more. Every man of Elm- hurst ' s nineteen played in at least one full quarter. Concordia evidently expects the thirty-six points to last for two years, for they have refused to schedule a game for 1927. Elmhurst College 13 Aurora College 0 Aurora College ' s squad of clean football players was met at Aurora on Saturday, November thirteenth, and the Elmhurst squad entered the game with seriousness written all over them. Aurora had not been beaten or scored on, and wanted to keep the record clean. A few minutes after the start of the first quarter, Elmhurst had to put the ball in play on their own seven yard line, From this point, they took the ball straight down the field in sixteen plays, bucks, passes, end runs, and off-tackle plays, to the twelve yard line. Langhorst, aided by splendid interference, took the ball around left end for the first touchdown. The attempt at goal was spoiled by a bad pass from center. In the second quarter, Elmhurst took the ball on straight rushes to Aurora ' s fifteen yard line, and then Langhorst dodged and straight-armed his way over for the second touchdown. He kicked goal with Yungschlager holding the ball, Aurora postponed their forward passing to the second half, but had it badly spoiled by a driving rain and Elmhurst ' s fleet ends and backs. 74 THE 1927 TEAM A.

The question of a line was the most pressing in September, and was finally settled with Bendigkeit at center, Wendland and Munz at guards, Schroedel and Lang at the tackles, Beehler and Peter at the ends, Yungschlager at quarter. Earth and Langhorst at their old half-back jobs, and Ernst Schultz at full. This combination played a steady and consistent game against Crane in the York Stadium, but yielded to pressure for a moment in the third quarter and allowed strategy to score after a long run. -E— Freddy Stoll fnally conquered English and was available at quarter in the Morton game. Milt Bierbaum came out that week and threatened any and all opposition at left end; Goetz was retained as sub at left end, and got revenge by beating Munz out of his left guard position while Munz was temporarily incapaci- tated. Beehler shifted his activities to right end as understudy to Peter. — E— The Elgin game caused more shifts, for Barth was injured in the first quarter, and Buescher, a light halfback, took his place. The two first class sub tackles, Schwantes and Boeger, began to function at this time, along with Red Young in the backfield. Elgin really deserved a victory, but we were going strong toward a tying touchdown in the last quarter when the ball was fumbled, recovered by an Elgin player who scooted nearly the length of the field for a second counter. — E— The tackling dummy has been abused so much that it felt time should be al- lowed for a return crack or two; StolFs cracked collar bone did not help the team morale or energy. Langhorst was shifted to .fullback, and Peter to right half; Beehler playing regular again at right end. The American College of Phvsical Education proved to be poor fundamental players, and dumped two fumbles that were later turned into touchdowns by Langhorst. — E — Lijuries! That seems to be the outstanding feature of the 1927 season. Coupled with it might be placed Endurance; the type of endurance that makes American sports worth while, and the players men. The squad had to face loss after loss, but bravely surmounted the losses to pile up one hundred pc)iiils and win Ine out of eight games. — E— Paul Peter, 1927, will not be back in the Navy Blue ne.xt -ear, and we shall miss him. He had the pleasure of phn ing his last game on l he n.ugli arsii field, and we know he enjo ' ed it. May you have good fortune and success in your future endeavors. 70 WINNERS OF THE " E " FOOTBALL Hemert J.

Some colleges forget the spiritual side of men, some over-emphasize the physical; at Elmhurst we have tended to neglect physical and social development. These may not be ignored without peril to mind and spirit. If we are to do our full share toward equipping Elmhurst men for leadership in church, state and science we must now provide an adequate program of physical education and social life; but this we cannot do without better facilities. A gymnasium is an imperative need. Its erection will round out our equipment and will enable us to do more effective work at our task of building men. President THE STUDENT CAMPAIGN Believing that the best way to impress upon Evangelical people the need for a Gymnasium at Elmhurst, the students decided to make a personal sacrifice themselves. The plans for a campaign of this nature were launched at a special Gym Banquet. The Student Campaign Committee chose nineteen Centurians QYM BANQUET each of whom was to head a team for soliciting pledges from students and friends. Everybody on the campus entered into the spirit of the thing. The employees pledged almost 500; the faculty alone pledged almost $3,000. A total of almost $10,000 was pledged by students, faculty, employees, and friends. 83 AN APPRECIATION On history ' s page shall stand recorded the gratitude of Elmhurst College for the Student Fund for the New Gymnasium, a gift of over ten thousand dollars. IT was a decided tribute to the men of Elmhurst when students personally pledged $2,158 toward the Gymnasium Fund. AN outstanding example of faculty interest in student life will remain the personal gift of $2,970 from members of the Faculty. OLLEGE Family Spirit never had a over $400.00 from the employed college help. THE additional gifts of over $5,000 secured by students from interested friends and thru the efforts of the Glee Club and the Dramatic Clubs, stand as evidence of faithful student effort. Mindful of the loyalty and devotion of its students, facultj and friends, contributing from their savings to the welfare of the college, every earnest endeavor is being made to do the utmost to erect a Gymnasium which will be a worthy tribute to its loyal student body. than in the gift of Done in the fifty-sixth year of the building of Elmhurst Men, at Elmhurst, Illinois ELMHURST COLLEGE Anno Domini 1927 84 Jforetoorb HE work of the i cademy in ushering in the Greater Elmhurst can not be under estimated. Ever since 1919 the Acad- emy has been the main support of the college of liberal arts. It boasts among its graduates more than half of the men who have matricu- lated into the College. In the last few years, the College has grown at the expense of the Academy, but today, it is still a valuable adjunct to the College. In the history of the institution, the Acad- emy has played its important role and is now making way for the onward march of the Greater Elmhurst. 87 Edward Schneider . . Troy. Mo.

Upon opening it, I found an old man, ragged and dirty, lying exhausted on the doorstep. I lifted him up and carried him into my room, where I made him as comfortable as possible. Finally he spoke and asked me not to interrupt him or he would not say what he was to report to me. Also he asked me to record what he was about to say. This I promised. " I am called ' The Traveller ' . Five years ago I had a vision, saying that I should go out and find the graduates of Elmhurst Academy of 1927. I found Johnson in Lucerne, Switzerland, where he is a rich truck farmer in times of peace and the commander of the Great Swiss Navy in times of war. I found Brueseke in Egypt where he is still studying plane geometry. He had progressed so rapidly that he hopes to take up solid geometry in a few years. He intends to prove that the pyramids are equilatteral. Sennewald was found in Central Africa running a high-class tonsorial parlor. He has invented an automatic scissors and razor. The only trouble is, it doesn ' t cut. On the Cape of Good Hope, I found Kallmeyer, happily married to his first sweetheart. He is succeeding well in teaching the natives how to read Latin and chew gum at the same time. Schweickart is a musician in Chandarnagar, India, where he is teaching the natives how to play jazz on their tom-toms. Hans Mueller was found in Banjermasin, Borneo, where he is a big butter and egg man. He was lost a few days ago, but luckily he had an egg in his pocket, which he broke open and went home in a ' yellow ' . Pres. Schneider is in Florence, Arizona, where he is an accomplished doctor of arts. He is teaching the cowboys how to write German love-letters to Chinese girls. Schiffman js a yell leader at Monkey Island, Milwaukee Zoo. During his spare time he is writing Greek myths which rival those of Homer. Poppe has a very good position in Zion City, Illinois, where he teaches the inhabitants how to roll cigarettes and speak Plattdeutsch simultaneouslv. Jungfer is a prominent pastor in Buffalo, New York. He has taken his father ' s church and has a very bright future behind him. Brandon is a physical director in Florida. He devotes his spare time in stud -- ing the lengths of heat waves as compared with the heights of the waves in the sea. " ( ' We always thought he ' d be a noted physicist.) " Pahl is studying Bolshevism on the Azores Islands. So far he has succeeded in teaching the Kindergarten pupils how to drive mules without swearing. Grotefend is a famous actor of Shakespearean plays in London. He takes the part of female characters, for his voice is so (?) feminine. Kalkbrenner is a model in a Paris Clothing Co. He is ver}- popular and is daily admired by thousands of women. " (We always knew he ' d never escape them.) At this point the traveller asked for a drink, and when I came back with a glass, he had disappeared.

In fact, the " Class of 1928 " , is famed for its active participation in Academy endeavor, both in regard to scholastic and extra-curricular work. During the current year the class has been enriched by the addition of several members who entered Elmhurst for the first time. A review of the achievements of the Juniors reveals some interesting factors. When we consider scholastic standing, we find that five members had their names on the honor roll. In athletics the Juniors have an enviable record. Six men played on the Academy football team, which was captained by a class member. The class actively participated in the intramural basketball games. A number of men are out for the baseball team. Several of the fellows played on the Academy tennis team. As a whole, the class evinced a great interest in the Academy Dramatic Club. Among the officers of the E. A. D. C. we find several Juniors. The class boasts a great deal of dramatic and musical talent. The " Class of 1928 " is looking forward to graduation next year and then matriculation into Elmhurst College. It has always been the policy of the class to zealously uphold the noble traditions of the Academy. Top Row JUERGENS, BuNGE. Second Row — Burandt, Meyer, Hansen, Ulhorn. Bottom Row — Wahl, A.

Although our class is small in number, we have striven to uphold the honor of our Alma Mater. Though small in number, we were represented in football, in Academy dramatics, and on the honor roll. When we returned in the fall of 1926 we were still more eager to fulfil the boasts we had made during the previous year. The class being so small, we could not organize, but that did not hinder us from fulfilling our obligations. May our class live up to the ideals of our school, and may she always be proud of the Class of ' 29. E. KuRZ. 90 THE CLASS OF 19 3 0 Here you see the last Freshman Class in the history of the Academy— the Class of 1930. With this class begins the absolution of the Academy, and this fact undoubtedly ac- counts for the small number of members. In September these men were green, as usual, but they soon realized their Importance in the Acade my and they have been holding their own ever since. Though small m number, this class can rightfully boast of their importance. Several played football, several baseball, some were in the Academy Play. " Clarence " , and, last but not least, some were " honor roll " men. They have boosted us, hence Three cheers for the Class of 1930! Top Row— GHWECKK, FOESCH, MiCHAELIS, FoNTANA.

At the frst meeting the following off cers were elected: A Richard Grotefend, President; Gustav Pahl, Secretary; Robert Johnson Treasurer; G. Merl Schiffman, Dramatic Manager; Louis Suedmeyer, Business Manager. Plans were immediately made for the school soring play. • ' Clarence " , a four-act comedy by Booth Tarkington, was chosen. With the able help of five young ladies from Elmhurst and vicinity, the play was success- fully presented on April twentv-second. Prof. Lawrence E. Bliss coached the presentation, assisted by Miss Margaret Powell. The proceeds were turned over to the Gym Fund. , , , , r i . Much credit is due to the outside help. Miss Carolyn Gray showed fine talent and her fine talent was of great value to the cast. Miss Evelyn Emerick also had an important part and proved herself an able actress. Misses Martha Weber, Edna Breuhaus, and Lucille Dwellv added much to the success of the play. The club is well-satisfied with its successful term and will open activities again next fall. 102 Jforetoorb IN THIS BOOK we are presenting the new Elmhurst College School of Music. This new department is the expression of a paramount need, and is the culmination of the efforts of the College and the music loving public of Elmhurst and vicinity. Although in its infancy, the School is ex- panding its various departments beyond all expectations. New instructors are being added to a faculty that boasts of only masters as heads of the various departments. The new School of Music inaugurates a new epoch of music for the community. Elmhurst at last provides a place where her music talent can be adequately developed. The hearty cooperation of the community has already manifested itself in various ways. The future of the new School appears very bright. THE GLEE CLUB Together with the organization of the College School of Music, a reorganization of the Glee Uub took place. The membership was increased to nearly fifty per- sons, thirty-five of whom are to be carried on concert tours. The rehearsing of so large a number of men is intended to give the conductor a greater freedom of choice m selecting the voices best fitted to represent the Alma Mater before the public. But in addition to the increased number of voices in the chorus another new feature adds to the beauty of the work done by this organization. That is the regular vocal training received by each member in conjunction with the chorus experience. The splendid result of the operation of these two factors has become evident through the quality of the concerts sung bv the Glee Club in and about Hlmhurst during the current year. Owing to the fact that the new policy of keeping so large an enrollment has placed the activity of the Glee Club on a more or less experimental basis, the trips enjoyed by the group have not been so numerous nor so extended as were those of the past two years. However, from all indications, the organization has by this time nearly adjusted itself, and the coming season may be looked forward ' to as one of great activity and pleasurable experiences. But it should also be pointed out that the concert program of the Glee Club during the present season is composed of more diffcult numbers, requiring longer and more frequent rehearsals than was the case with the programs of former years. A number of highly classical songs are in the repertoire of this year ' s organization, some of which are decidedly difFcult of rendition .Several numbers are being sung m the original Latin, while others have been selected from the old f-rench and English artists; German selections are also being added to the list of fine things the Glee Club sings. It is of special interest that the chorus sings most of Its songs without accompaniment. This is possible only under the ex- ce lent direction of Mr. John Minnema, Dean of our School of Music, who has a splendid reputation as organizer and conductor of similar choruses in and about Lnicago. The pleasing nature of the concert program of this musical group is further enhanced by the services of two fine artists from the fields of vocal art and of dramatic expression. Miss Maude Bouslough is intensely popular with every audience before whom she sings her delightful soprano solos. ' And in no less degree do the readings of Miss Hazel Stevens add to the beauty of the Glee Club ' s con- certs. Both of these young ladies are employed by the School of Music as instruc- tresses in their respective fields, and their work with the Glee Club is largeh- re- sponsible for the popularity of that organization during the present season ' THE QUARTET T E 8 Selected from the Glee Club membership and closeh- related to that organiza- tion in function are the college quartets, of which there are several on the campus at the present time. The pictures of the first two to be organized are presented on an adjoining page of this book. The activity of the quartets has been somewhat limited this year, as a result of the onslaughts of the eligibility ruling, but some good experience has been gained by all the men participating in this form of musical acti ■it •. By keeping se cral quartets in constant training, it is hoped that, in future ears, i ' t will he possible at all times to have one or more of them prepared for immediate acti.m w hen c ilN are received for gospel teams and the like. Ill FIRST QUARTET Priedke Schmiechen Bendigkeit Sonderegger 112 i)t Jfeaturesi Calendar 9 " Events SEPTEMBER Everyone was here by the evening of the 15th. We partook of supper in our new commons and therefore dined royally. President Niebuhr then addressed us. Classes and also football practice began -1 ' on the next day; the upper classmen and the profs soon found out I J [fl that the freshmen were still green — and also blue. IfOn the night of the 17th the School of Music was introduced to the public by a formal reception. fThe Frosh tried to find the Campus key and the School pink. influence but to no avail. 1|The songbirds, or rather in technical Starts language, the Glee Club, began their work on the 22nd. It should be a really real Glee Club; John Minnema, director. Several nights later interest was aroused in football by a " hot " pep meeting. After the pep, the Frosh initia- tion commenced to begin. The green caps were donned and rules were laid down. IfOn the 25th the college football squad lost to Crane, 6-0. But accidents do occur. •fDuring the foIlowin.T; week the Student Union and Y. M. C. A. began plans for the new year of real accomplishments. OCTOBER We began the month by a pep meeting which helped to beat Morton, 25-0 on the following day. Trhe International Relations Club reorganized and began their work for the new year. 1[The Frosh and Upper Classmen didn ' t get on together so well so a few of the Frosh received a little ride. One hunted for something in the cemetery till late at night. 1|We were visited by Dr. Press from Eden on the 6th. IfThe Masque and Buskin decided to produce the play " You and I " in the fall. 5fThe 9th brought us a defeat for the football squad; Elmh ' u ' st, 0; Elgin, 13. |0n Sunday afternoon, Oct. 10, the Glee Club helped to dedicate the new Elmhurst Hospital. We hoped that the hospital would return favors with the songsters. HThe very dignified Senior Class organized and chose the " Hausvater " as the pilot. [On the 13th Rev. Reinhold Niebuhr delivered an address in the Chapel. IfThe 16th brought the college a victory over the American College of Physical Education, 14-0. 1[St. Louis and Rock Island were popular cities over the week end of the 18th. Why? Excursions and guess. Ulce cream was served on the evening of the 20th. Some one must have been married. Was it Mr. Von der Ohe? TI ' lic great( st Home- coming in the history of Elmhurst College — crowd, eats, friends, fun, and ;i i ' ool- ball victory over St. Bede, 12-10. Incidentally — tlie Sophs won the class lush so the Frosh, poor creatures, still kept their green caps. 1| Professoi- Kiull oi-- ganizes a new species of a football team; the players were picked from those ex- posed to the biological sciences. 1[The Dean seemed to have lost something and had quite a hard time in attempting to keep the bulletin board from lieing molested. IfJ. Stitt Wilson, noted lecturer, spent the 27th and 2.Sth on our campus. The college received a very slight set-back from DeKalb, 32-0. Another accident. [Hallowe ' en was celebrated on the last day of the month as usual. A good time was had by some, nf)t all. A Bad Frosh 117 NOVEMBER Nothing happened until the sixth which brought us a football victory over Concordia, 36-0. Too easy. Academy lost to North Central. Too hard. i[The Glee Club assisted in the chorus at Moody temple on the 7th. HOn the 9th the Y. M. C. A. began work anew. Ed Lang became the new president taking the place of Dan Lang. The Student LTnion took over the " Y " store. HE. T. Devine, a leading economist, addressed us on " Mexico of Today " , in the chapel on the morning of the 10th. 1[The follow- ing evening the Sophs re-elected Herb Barth as president of the class for the coming school year. The members are the genuine " wise fools " . IfOn the 13th the college football team closed a brilliant season with the victory over Aurora, 13-0. IjDean Mueller returned from the hospital after having given his classes a long vacation. Masque and Buskin presented the fall play, " You and L ' , to a full house at York Theatre on the night of the 16th. It was a splendid production and the parts were played with professional skill. Why not? Notice the cast. IfThe Dean visited St. Louis and his poor neglected classes received one more vacation. 1[A new disease, scientifically termed the " mustachio fever " , spread over the campus. Rev. Mayer arrived to assist the president. !fln assembly, on the 24th, we had as visitors, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Wieboldt and Rev. and Mrs. Jacob Pister, all loyal supporters of Elmhurst. Thanksgiving — Union Services — Dinner — Theatre. 112200 St. Louisans saw the great production, " You and I " , given by the Masque and Buskin of Elmhurst College. DECEMBER York Theatre had Football Week so the bright idea was formed of giving out the letters to our football team behind the footlights at the theatre. This was done before a large audience. The quartets helped out on the programs during the week. On the evening of the 6th a large banquet formally opened the Gym campaign. Talks, eats, and enthusiasm were on the program. We spent a great deal of the evening dreaming of the future Elmhurst. Sometimes dreams come true. Money then began to " flow " toward the Gym Fund. fMr. Tso Wang, a Chinese educator, spoke to us in assembly on the 8th. We learned of civil troubles in China. i During the week before the exodus for vacation, everyone was busy writing letters to Gym Fund " friends " but they were also busy taking tests. Friday, the 17th, most of us moved out for Home, Sweet Home. IfDec. 25th was Christmas day according to an established custom. Santa Claus was good to most of us. Yea Team! JANUARY The students returned to theii- lal)ors on the 4tli. Some were happy, others were blue. The latter mood was in the majority. HThe next forenoon Prexie addressed the student body and urged them to make 1927 an unusual year as to accomplishments. It was decided to do that very thing. " [On the 11th it was decided to publish an annual for 1927. Two days later Arthur Schaible was elected editor of the I ' llnis of 1927. Work began immediately. HThe Juniois oi-gaiiizcd on the 14th and called upon Paul Sondregger to guide tliem. ' i1ns looked to be a most promising class — too nmch so. Money More Exams 119 began coming in for the Gym Fund.

UDr. Bickman gave a lecture on the 26th and remained for a two day visit. IfSemester exams suddenly had us in their clutches. Some of us escaped their sting. It was the survival of the fittest. Pep Galore FEBRUARY The new semester opened on the first day of the month. We registered and attempted to begin our work with vigor but that was almost impossible after having battled with exams. How- ever, we soon regained strength ancl energy. 1[0n the second day we listened to Dr. Strong lecture on Mexico. HThe Vespers at St. Peter ' s on the 6th were in the hands of our two quartets. About forty students visited the Swift and Co. stockyards on the 8th. The crowd was chaperoned by Prof. Krull. IjThe ninth brought us a great surprise — that is — appai ' ently. It was learned that the Dean of men was engaged. In truth, our sus- picions were only confirmed. 1]0n the 10th the Glee Club presented its first real Concert at Elgin. UTeam A won the basketball championship. The weather excited the baseball and tennis fans. IfOn the 16th we heard H. T. Mazumdar, a Hindu student, speak of India and Gandhi.

TfDr. DuBois, a colored lecturer, presented an interesting topic on the race problem to us in as- sembly on the second day of this month. IfSpringlike days caused interest to be aroused in baseball and tennis. Work be- gan both on the diamond and on the courts. Six week tests began their deadly work and a few students actually ditl remain Three Big Days eligible to represent the school. Miracles tlo happen. liThe office began a drive for new students for 1927: the Promotion Office organized its Alumni Gym Fund. fOn the 21st spring should have begun — but did it? If Preparations were being made for the Elmhurst Service Conference a week in advance. The conference was held here on the 27th, 28th, and 29th.
