Tiventy-five Twenty-seven (HiuBB of 192H ERE we stand, the remnant of a once mighty band. Out of the thirty- odd freshmen of four years ago only nine have been able to survive the toil of the years. And I think that we can truthfully say that this has been a case of survival of the fittest. In thinking of the Seniors I think less of a class than of a group of distinct individuals — great men of an age can never be classified in one category. So the Seniors of this year have never functioned admirably as a class. In the first meeting of the class it was decided to do away with all traditional meaning- less formality. Hence Seniors pictured in caps and gowns will not be found in the Elms and in various other ways we have lived up to our motto of breaking away from old traditions. Since our class is a number of individuals instead of a single unit, I wish to speak of each member separately. Otto Fisher, like King Saul, stands head and shoulders over all the people. Like so many big men " Ot " carries his big- ness into his inner-self also. His kindliness is as rare as it is pleasing. In every group there should be some severe critic of men ' s activities. Such a caustic individual is " Pete " — he furnished the necessary leaven to keep sweet the dough of senior sophistication so often in danger of becoming stale. One of our professors said to me some time ago " Briesemeister " can ' if he ' will ' " . We are confident that Henry will do the great things that he is capable of doing. Everything King Midas touched turned into gold and everything that Dan Lang takes in hand begins to hum. Dan ' s ambitions and energy should become proverbial. " Wit Is the spice of life, " and as long as Ewald is anywhere near you need not fear that life will be flavorless. Teddy Schultz is the youngest and jolliest of our crew — always bubbling over with something or other. His high enthusiasm occasionally got him into scrapes. Don ' t be discouraged Teddy — only the average man is properly appreciated. Irv ' delights in taking digs a t everything and everybody. " The Fake " was no longer a fake after he became fakir. " Al " is an all around man but if he has any outstanding trait it is his ability to guzzle beer ala Salamander. I can say little about myself except that I take a devilish delight in dis- agreeing with folks. So here ' s hoping someone will disagree with what I have said. Take heed old world, we have arrived and from now on things will be different. O. SCHROEDEL. CLASS OFFICERS Paul Sonderegger President O. Schroedel Secretary Twenty-eight .HLE- X ' r9 2 8 HENRY (Breezie) BRIESEMEISTER Schenectady. N. Y. You know Breezie; he is the fellow with the big fur coat. If he is not known for any other reason it will be for his ability to play the uke. His activities are of course not so limited that nothing else can be said. He seems to be the only one among us that has the power to fufill requirements without any visible effort. After all, this may be all part of his pet theory, that of " economy of effort. " We have often wondered what he would do if music should suddenly dis- appear from the earth. It is thought that this desire has lead him to his ability as a radiotrician, know. the extent of which we all Like his room-mate he is a glutton for punishment. He has managed to exist four years without a change. Although their ideas and characteristics constantly clash they have not as yet come to blows. Among other accomplishments Breezie was one of the founders of the German Club, one time photographer, and rest cure OTTO FISHER Bensenville. 111. The man in the ranks of the seniors everyone looks up to. Men possessed of unusual characters are always looked up to — and such a person is " Fisher " with his 6 feet and 2 inches of corporeal length. But it is not only for his great height that Fisher is admired. Another very notice- able feature of this giant is his dwarf-like air of self importance. Quiet and unobtru- sive, but always cheerful and ready to par- ticipate in clean fun. Otto Fisher was liked by every man of us who knew him. It is regrettable that his home is so near our campus because that allowed him to live there and took him away from extra-curri- cular activities here on the campus. More men of his ready and willing spirit of co- operation are needed at Elmhurst. Otto spent the first year of college at Northwestern University before deciding to come to Elmhurst. He lacks only a few hours credit for receiving B. S. degree. Otto expects to take up the study of medicine and we wish him much success in his under- taking. Tzventy-nine ALBERT GONSER Hale Corners, Wisconsin Al. came to us from Hale, Corners, Wis. and frequently made week , end trips to his home town. .n- ns f Al. was one of thoseJ •i " Happy-go-lucky " fellows who never let his studies interfere with his college education. He was an au- thority on Eords. radios and German liter- ature. His interest could always aroused by offering to sell him a cheap secsnd-hand Ford or radio. In these deals, wi some- times caught glimpses of a strain of Semitic blood in his veins, for no one, but he, ever got the better end of the deal. Al. ' s interest in German literature was manifested by his ardent devotioi to the activities of the " German Club ' : (where they guzzled beer and cracked German); It was hard to get intimate with Al. but once the ice was broken, he became very amiable and f ull qf jcintrijating , wit and WILLIAM A. J. HALFTER Cincinnati, Ohio " Bill " is not the ordinary type of fellow, and is consequently not always understood by his fellow classmates. He likes to dive into philosophy and to air his own opinions, to which he usually gives a philosophical trend. The four words: pessimism, sarcastic, aristocratic and studious, characterize " Bill " fairly well. Women play no role in " Bill ' s " life. In fact he says that all women do is to spur a man on to travel all summer in order to flee from them. He wishes to remain a bachelor all his life, but we would hate to predict what will happen when the right woman comes into his life. " Bill " spent three years at Elmhurst and in that time earned enough credits to enable his completing his work at Eden Seminary ry -earn his degree from Elmhurst. often feels that he is not of the SrglpSiLXype. " but he is supremely the preacher. He was continually moralizing, and we feel that he will soon " find " himself in the field of the mlnistt ; Thirty IRVIN KRACKE Baltimore. Md. Irv is the only one of the trio of Balti- moreans who came to Elmhurst four years ago, who is still with us. He is also the only man in the Senior class with a real excuse for wearing a mustache; he says it hurts his upper lip to shave it. Although the climate of Baltimore does not much favor the production of great ice-skaters, he is the undisputed champion of thait sport in the college. This leaning towa;|ci the graceful does not end here, however, Tfor his ability with the pen is attested to i by his election to the place of Art Editor; of the Annual several times. It is somewhat of a contrast, then, that Biology is the ; subject which occupies most of his time :and to which his heart is, with several extra-curri- cular exceptions, given. He and his room- mate have the record of having roomed to- gether for the whok four years, sharing, together witli their joys and sorrows, their ties, their incomes, and their dat£s.- , . DANIEL LANG St. Louis, Mo. It is a marvel that a body as short as his can harbor such an unquenchable plane oi physical and mental energy. Always at the top or near it in his academic work, Dan was able at the same time to put in several hours every day working as a gardener. Women — Dan never said much about the fair sex but we have a faint suspicion that the " only girl " is located somewhere in Mis- souri. On certain days Dan could be seen leaving the post office with his face wreathed in smiles and deeply absorbed in a letter. As president of the Student Union Dan piloted the student body through a rather tempestuous year in a very creditable man- ner. His earnestness and sincerity of man- ner won for him the respect of the group. Dan was- not serious all of the time, for in his lighter moments he aspired to become a Thespian. As a result he appeared in every, college play during his four years here iL V the leading male role " ■ ' Thirty one EWALD LANG St. Louis, Mo. The literal meaning of the word Ewald is out of the woods. This affinity to na- ture seems to account for his artistic abili- ties. Our bulletin boards were always em- bellished by Ewald ' s art and he was always willing and cheerful to make any posters that were needed around the campus. Ewald was not engaged in any athletic activities on the campus, because ihe spent all of his spare time dishing out ice cream, jerking soda water, and making himself generally useful at Mahler ' s Drug Store. No one ever quarreled with Ewald for he soon pacified his aggressor with a few witty remarks, with which he was fairly bubbling over. No one ever tried o match his wit with Ewald ' s because he krnew that it was useless. Ewald will enter the teaching profession and we are sure that the pupils he teaches will be fortunate in having him as a teacher. We only hope that he will not teach them ll|,.3ny of : the pranks he pulled on us. CHRISTIAN ROLPHING Hermann, Mo, " Chris " was with us only three years and in that time he earned enough credits to enable him to complete his courses at Eden Seminary and receive his degree from Elm- hurst. " Chris " was not active in Extra-curri- cular activities because he was forced to work his way through college. He was one of those lads one usually reads about in fiction, i.e., he worked his way through college, maintained a Ford, and saved money be- sides. " Chris " was always ready to listen to schemes whereby he could make money. He could borrow money at 3 percent interest and loan it out again at 6 percent with the air of a philanthropist. Chris was certainly industrious and how he managed to work To much at odd jobs and still mamtain his, scholastic standing is gg=3ve could understand. He was always cheerfuL and " smiling no matter how much trouble his Ford caused him, and he will always be remembered by us for his cheerful and industrious nature. • Thirty-tKo OTTO SCHROEDEL Pearl City, Illinois Every one liked Otto because he was quiet, sensible and friendly, Schroedel was a man with an unassuming character, and those who knew him agree that he was without sham and affection. His friendli- ness was so genuine that, in spite of his delight in arguing about every possible sub- ject with anyone who would argue with him, he made only friends and follcrwers. Though not active in extra-curricular ac- tivities, he contributed his influence toward a better campus life by being a good student. One of his greatest delights was to speak " low dutch " with some of his friends, and those of us who listened always enjoyed the conversations. As a member of the German club, he found time to indulge in this pas time. Schroedel can be truly called a credit ' his alma mater because he was always loyaT to her. THEODORE SCHULZ Holland. Indiana ' Tor He ' s a jolly good fellow, " such was " Teddie. " Whether in work or in play " Teddie " was in it with heart and soul. Although the personification of jollity and good cheer, he could be very serious in vital matters. He was a lad of strong conscience and definite ideals and would readily take sides with the persecuted if he thought that they were in the right. He was a natural leader and distinguished himself by his activities in the Glee Club and Quartette. Enemies are often an indication of char- acter and those opponents that " Schulzie " made were a compliment to his character. " Teddie ' s " immaculate hair comb was a constant wonder to his fellow students and strong lure to the ladies, who by the way, , were only a side issue with " Teddie. " " Schulzie " possesses the true instinct of service and will without doubt be a credit to, his chosen profession — the ministry. Thirty-three PAUL J. SONDEREGGER Hudson. Kansas The credit for the organization and the successful continuation of the senior class as an organization is due to " Pete, " its president. Besides feeling his presence, we would sometimes hear his presence, for " Pete " had a voice that made him a valuable asset to the Glee Club for five consecutive years, and to the quartette for two years. Then too, the commons would sometimes feel hiS pres- ence, for his appetite was a credit to any culinary department. " Pete " majored in education and the phi- losophy of Pestalozzi and Froebel made such a profound impression on him that; he de- cided to enter the teaching profession. We never heard " Pete " say anything about girls — and it seems that they were the least of his worries. .- ; " Pete " was tdtftist, jocund, full of wit and yet at times serious, satirical and con- scientious-, but at all times a student of no fllil ,,,jnean ability. In short — a man with ideals ' |r iind convictAons eadg to back them in speech ' ' ' and action. sJ g OSCAR W. WAGNER Bensenville. Illinois Elmhurst was too close to " Occie ' s " home to permit his staying on the campus over the week ends. Besides his home ties there seems to have been other attractions in Ben- senville which proved a strong lure to " Occie ' . We certainly will remember " Oc- cie " as bringing life into the student body as cheer leader. His antics at the football games was always a source of amusement and pep to the spectators. " Occie " was always active in extracurri- cular activities. As president of the Y. M. C. A., he did some excellent work in or- ganizing and expanding that organization. Occie ' s chief diversions were his " jolopy. " dates, and discussions of deeply philosophi- cal nature which neither he nor we under- - — stepdgsssgse - =He spent three years at Elmhurst and fin- ESBed his courses at Eden Seminary. " Occie ' s " optimistic nature prompted him to express his emotions in singing but we ' ; . sincerely advise him never to sing any love ditties to his best girl, for we would hate i ; to hear the consequenqjfciOf such a Molenc expression of his love. Thirty-i ' iur 1 hirly five (Elaaa of 1929 jtiriE SHALL always be proud to say that we have been members of the ri 1 Class of 1929. Perhaps we could rightly call ourselves the " Best Class in the History of Elmhurst " but we make no such boastful assertion. Preceding classes have claimed that honor for themselves, perhaps each has been " best, " but to us, the class of 1929 typifies all that is active, loyal, and true on the Campus at Elmhurst. Three years ago we came, four score of " green " but ambitious frosh. About one-half of this number were newcomers to Elmhurst: the remainder entered from the Academy. At first we saw little and wondered much — but not for long, for we were soon caught amid the mass of activities and began to provide a place for ' 29 on the Campus. As Freshmen we found that the Sophomore regulations were quite dis- tasteful and it was not our fault that the tables were not turned upon them. However, the year ended with everyone as friends. During that year, the class was well represented in the musical organizations, athletic teams, publica- tions, and all other campus activities. The class returned in September. 1926, with somewhat thinned ranks, but with a greater determination to live up to our reputation. That year we were the " Sophisticated Sophs " and it was our duty to bring up the Freshmen properly — which we did. Green caps were worn without a murmur, except in cases when punishment was applied. The class rush, which was centiered about the old " Sauer-Kraut " barrel, resulted in a victory for ' 29 and the Freshmen continued to suffer. In the third year many of our number were lost to the class, for they had been graduated from the Junior College and concluded their college career. All of us, however, experienced a feeling of superiority and made plans to enjoy our Junior year. During the year the class was completely organized and many pleasant affairs were enjoyed. Junior Day was something new and different, on which day the members of ' 29 proudly made themselves known at Elmhurst. The Class feed was an unusual success. Now we are about to be Seniors. A few of us will return to Elmhurst to continue the activities of ' 29, while others expect to finish their under- graduate work at Eden. Wherever we may be we shall always look back to our three years at Elmhurst, to the friendships which we have formed, to the joys and sorrows which were shared together, to the memories which are most sacred among life ' s souvenirs.

Bendie could always be found in one of three places — either up in the Biology Lab playing with " gooey " things, up in his bed in " 313 " close to the radio, or else out visiting with — but that ' s his secret. We hope he continues through life with as much success as when he " tooted ' the " Sax " at Elmhurst. Carl Burkle . . . Geneva, Iowa ■•Carl " " Man ' s life is but a jest, a dream, a shadow, bub- ble, air, a vapor at the best. " Glee Club 2. 3; I. R. C. 2, 3; Elm Bark 3. Carl is our philosopher. He can lead you through metaphysical knowledge to a deeper un- derstanding of life. Plato had the mathematical approach to philosophy, but our philosopher takes us through the subtleties of music to a greater realization of life. Martin Ernst ' Mart ' Independence, Mo. " A loving maiden grows unconsciously more bold. " Football 3 : Masque and Buskin 2, 3 : Play Manager 3: Elm Bark 2, 3; Elms Staff 3; Glee Club 2. 3; Band 1, 3; German Club 3. Marty is the kind of fellow you usually read about — scholarly, gentlemanly and popular with his associates. To meet him is to like him and to like the things he likes — radio, good plays, and pretty women. His competition with the photog- rapher resulted even in getting a picture of Prof. Bauer in philosophy class. WiLMER Grunwaldt, Black Creek, Wis. " Wimy " " A jolly good fellow in all kinds of weather. " Y. M. C. A. 2; I. R. C. 2: Orchestra 1, 2, 3: Band 3; Glee Club 3; Brass Quartette 3. " That ' s nothing, wait till you see mine. " He is quite a musician, but between his music and studies he manages to be as jovial and sociable as can be. If you want to find Wilmar, hunt for Hilmar and you ' ve found them both. They are twins, and never the twain shall part. HiLMER Grunwaldt, Black Creek, Wis. " Himy " " When I get back to Wisconsin I will show them a trick I learned at Elmhurst. " Band 1, 3: Glee Club 3: Orchestra 1. 2. 3. Hilmer is a very conscientious worker, which accounts for his high standing in scholastics and music. A distinction falls upon him that cannot be duplicated on this campus — except by his brother, each being one of the twins. Arby Hosto . . . Alhambra, 111. " Arby " " know not on which foot to dance " — Charleston. I. R. C. 2, 3. Arby is a quiet, serious fel low, but he also knows how to smile and appreciate wit. We usually think of him as " good old man Hosto, " for he likes to play that part. Arby is always ready to offer help and friendship whenever it is needed. Thirty-eight Waldemar Hille . . Moro, 111. " Big Husky " " How his fingers went when they moved by note Through measures fine, as he marched them o ' er The yielding plank of the ivory floor. " Glee Club " 1, 2. 3. To use his own pet phrase, Hille is quite the " hot stuff " when it comes to the piano. Chopin and Liszt are his friends, but he is also acquainted with Irving Berlin. What a pleasure the Juniors have to point to one so famous as Hille. Quiet he is, and with firm convictions about life. You can ' t fool " Big Husky. " Emil Hotz .... Hoyleton, 111. " Mike " " With ever a smile and never a tear, Do I this life live here. " Glee Club 1, 2, 3: Quartet 1,2; Band 3. To say he is a jolly good fellow is hardly enough, for he is more than that — he is a friend to everyone. " Hot Darn, got Denver last night. " His hobbies were giving up cigarettes, and getting DX on the radio. Otto Kugler . . . Lenzburg, 111. " Otts " " He curses all Eve ' s daughters of what complexion soever. Elm Bark 2: Elm Bark Editor 3; Elms 2; Student Union 1: Tennis 2, 3: Debate Manager 3; Varsity Club 3: German Club 3. Behold, ladies, this handsome gentleman is the avowed bachelor of the class of ' 29. With a crowded program of Chemistry, tennis, and Elm Bark editing (to say nothing of his greyhound racing in Afghanistan) it is a wonder to see him maintain his masterful composure. Otto is im- mensely interested in all things medical — except nurses. Alvin Knicker . . . Areola, 111. " Knicker " " My tongue within my lips I rein; For ivho talks much must talk in vain. " Band 3; I. R. C. 2, 3: Orchestra, Knicker is that calm, reserved chap whom everyone recognizes but few fellows know. Back of his slow, yet ready smile, and his quiet voice, there seem to lie depth which we haven ' t plumbed. He is a good student: he ignores the fair sex, and unobtrusively avoids their snares; and so he goes his way serenely. Harry Koelling . . Hoyleton, 111. " Kelly " " When in the course of human events it became necessary to bluff, let us bluff. " Baseball 1 , 2, 3 ; I. R. C. 2, 3 ; Elm Bark 2; Y. M. C. A. 2; Band 3; Varsity Club 3. Harry ' s finally hit upon something besides base- ball that he likes a lot — History. He ' s a diligent student if you don ' t know it and takes a keen delight in everything he does. Although he is yet in his " Dogberry " stage, he aspires to become a second Daniel Webster. Thirty-nine THE 1 9 2 8 ELMS Oscar Storch Hamilton, Ohio " Doggie " " Whoever loved, thai loved not at first sights " — Shakespeare. Baseball 1, 2, 3; Football 1, 2, 3: Varsity Club 3. Doggie contradicts the belief that a man cannot be an athlete and a scholar at the same time. In the future he will be remembered by all Greek students for he is the man who discovered a sys- tem for the " Strengthening of All Weak Verbs. " Leslie PoesCHAL . . Hermann, Mo. " Les " " Tell me not in mournful numbers, life is but an empty dream. " German Club 3 ; String Quartet 3 ; Metaphysics Club 3. A horse laugh from the mule state. Only an optimist could take the kidding he gets. A good fellow who is often misunderstood. His " Sum- mum bonum " is metaphysics although other courses are condoned. Otto Nitz . . . Sigourney, Iowa " Nitz " " ' Tis better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all. " Elm.s Staff 2. 3: Business Manager Elm Bark 2, 3: Masque and Buskin 2: Pres. 3; " The Goose Hangs High. " Nitz is the mathematics and chemistry shark of the Junior class. If you happened to be in the Main Building most any afternoon, you ' d be sure to see Nitz dashing around in his " Chem " apron. Nitz also was a keen photographer as the " snaps " in the Elms indicate. Frederick Ludwig . Milwaukee, Wis. " Fritzie ' ' " Never idle a moment, hut thrifty and thoughtful of others. " Student Union 2, 3: Class Historian 2: Elms Staff 2, 3: Elm Bark Staff 3; German Club Sec- retary 3: Masque and Buskin 3. Jovial and friendly, and always ready to lend a hand. Whenever one visited his room there were always some sweetmeats at hand to tease your palate. A studious and practical fellow is Fritz, yet as full of wholesome pranks as any one. His admirable personality commanded respect from everyone. Fred KolLATH . . . Wausau, Wis. " Fredie ' ' " The sweetest joy, the wildest ii ' oe is love. " Glee Club 1. 2, 3. Fredie was a busy fellow: yet between his oc- casional Sunday trips to various neighboring ( ? ) cities for dates with members of the fairer sex and his work for Prof. Katterjohn, he found tim e to be a good student and to form a sound philosophy of life. Forty Gilbert Winter . . Hubbard, Iowa ■•G. W. " " To get the first B. S. degree, is the ambition of Rudy and me. " Baseball Mgr. 1, 3: Elm Bark 2, Circulation Mgr. 3; Adv. Mgr. Elms Staff 3; Treas. Y. M. C. A. 3. Gilbert is a member of that justly famous group of Juniors who can always be clepended upon. His ambitions are to do graduate work in chem- istry, to eat plenty, and to sleep long. We know that he will succeed even though he has changed a bit since his stay in the hospital in Chicago — you should be able to guess the reason. Arthur Schaible . . Wanatah, Ind. " Art " " The editor sat in his sanctum, his countenance furrowed ivith care, His mind at the bottom of business, his feet at the top of a chair. " Elms Editor 2, 3: Student Union 1, 2; Pres. Forensic League 1; I. R. C. 1, 2. " I ' m going to ox more this semester. " A man of affairs was Schaible. He could edit the Elms, run Quantitative determinations, and sell the cus- tomers down at the haberdashery equally well. Fred KuegER . . Petoskey, Mich. " Fritz " " With ability on the field to score, And a ' whiz ' on the dance and basketball floor. " Masque and Buskin 3 ; Band 3 ; Football 3 ; Elms 3; President of Varsity Club 3; " The Poor Nut " 3. Fritz was the class clown, athlete and musician. With music and athletics occupying much of his time he had little time left for study, but did you ever see him " flunk " ? His ready hand continually caused the students to add more jobs to his list of activities. Theodore Stoerker . St. Louis, Mo. " Ted " " prefer silent prudence to loquacious folly. " Masque and Buskin 1. 2. 3; Play Manager I. 2, 3; Y. M. C. A. 1; Football Manager 2. 3; Elms Staff 2; Store Manager 2, 3; Band Manager 3 ; Treasurer of Athletic Committee 2 : Varsity Club 3. " Gee Whiz. " Ted is a student worker of no mean capacity. He is a business man. His con- nections with any organization or activity was always as business manager for this or that, and no one else could manage bettec, Karl Rest . . Marshalltown, Iowa " Rest " " Persuasion tips his tongue whene ' er he talks. " I. R. C. 1, 2, 3: Elm Bark 2, 3. Rest didn ' t like a radio because he couldn ' t talk back to it. Whenever he spoke his words carried meanings. Nietschc ' s Super-man is his ideal, and don ' t try to tell Rest anything about philosophy — he ' ll talk rings around you. Forty-one Theodore Haefele . St. Louis, Mo. " Ted " " She says she likes me better with a mustache — no kidding. " Glee Club 1, 2. 3; Baseball 2, 3; Orchestra 2; German Club 3. If you see a collegiate looking chap with dark curly hair and a miniature mustache, that ' s Haefele. The curly hair and the mustache make a hit with the ladies, especially " the one lady. " His hobbies are Greek and music. Fred Ludholz . Tred " St. Joseph, Mo. " In the smallest cot there is room enough for a loving pair. " — Schiller. Football 3: Masque and Buskin 3; " The Goose Hangs High " 3: Varsity Club 3. Ladies and Gentlemen, step right to the front and get a close up of this handsome youth, the man who made St. Joe famous. His ambition is to compile a " Who ' s ' Who " of every girl in and near Elmhlirst. We know he will succeed in this and in all future undertakings. Victor Barth . . . Hampton, la. " Vic " " By nature honest; By experience, wise. " Class Treasurer. 1; Band. I, 3: Orchestra, 1: Glee Club. 1, 2, 3: Schiller Society, 1; Quartet, 2; Class President, 2: Chairman Campus and Build- ings Committee, 2: Social Chairman, 3. We were just wondering what the college would do without its automobile mechanic. Vic is not only mechanic, but he ranks high as another one of Professor Chester K. Rosenbaum ' s Chemistry prodigies. A mechanic in the morning, a chemist in the afternoon, and a Beau Brummel at night — that ' s just an average day for Vic. Fred Anderson . . . Waterloo, III. " Andy " " Wisdom grows in quiet places. " Band, 1,3: Masque K Buskin. 2, 3; I. R. C. 3: Debate, 3. Andy is a Coolidge man. I don ' t know whether he eats pie for breakfast or not: but he certainly believes in silence. When he spoke it was some- thing important he had to say. He was a likeable, unassuming chap, and we shall remember him al- ways minding his business and going the even tenor of his way. Louis Pieper . . . Waterloo, 111, " Louiee " " If I look busy I ' m satisfied. " Glee Club 1, 2, 3: Quartette 2, 3; Band 1, 3: Orchestra 1: Elm Bark 1, 2: Class Sergeant-at- Arms 2: Class Treasurer 3. Louiee is well known to many and especially in the Glee Club as one of the " rushing " basses. He also stars in the quartette. When not harmon- izmg at Elmhurst he spends his time serenading a " Juliet " in Rock Island. Forty-two Norman Zulauf . Baltimore, Md. " Norm " " This done, he took the bride about the neck and kissed her lips ivith such a clamorous smack that at parting, all the church did echo. " Y. M. C. A. 2, Pres. 3; Student Union 2; I. R. C. 2; Mgr. Tennis 2, 3; Masque and Buskin 2, 3; Elm Bark 3: Class Historian 3; " The Goose Hangs High " 3; Varsity Club 3. Norm ' s an easterner and mighty proud of it. as well he may be. Novelties are his hobby, and " just to be different " we ' ll say we are sorry to part company with Norm. His smile and gentle- manly manner bound to him friends with grace and fidelity. Samuel Schmiechen . . Swiss, Mo. " Schmiechen " " Knowledge and timber shouldn ' t be much used till they are well seasoned. " — Holmes. Circulation Mgr. Elms 3 ; Y. M. C. A. 1; Band 1,3: Glee Club 1, Treas. 2. Pres. 3; Quar- tet 2; Football 1,2: Varsity Club 3. Sam looked the facts square in the face and dealt accordingly. If he enters upon his future enter- prises with the same zest that he showed while at Elmhurst he will go over big. We will remember him for his all around musical abilities. Paul Press .... St. Louis, Mo. ' ' Press " " The light that lies in woman ' s eyes has been my undoing. " Glee Club 2, 3: Cir. Mgr. Elm Bark 1: Elms Staff 2; Masque and Buskin 1, 2: Student Union 3; " Three Wise Fools " 1 : Y. M. C. A. 1 : Treasury Y. M. C. A. 2. If you wanted to find Press, just look around for a Pinochle game and you would be sure to find him. We also know now why he worked down at Hesse ' s — so he would be able to take his lady friend out. Press was a capital fellow, clever too: always sweet and pure as the morning dew. Rudolph Priepke . Clarksville, Iowa ' Rudy " ' " Wilt thou have music! " Hark, Rudy plays and many caged collegians do sing. " — Shakespeare. Glee Club 1. 2, 3: Elm Bark 3: Quartet 2: Orchestra 3. " Now what should I do? Guess I ' ll go to the North Side. " And away he would hie to the big city for inspiration for another week. His quiet manner and happy disposition make him beloved of his classmates. He will some day turn base metal into gold as his music now turns gloom into happiness. Forty-three iaga jJ AUGHTERS of Time, the hypocritic Days, Muffled and dumb like barefoot dervishes. And marching single in an endless file, Bring diadems and fagots in their hands. To each they offer gifts after his will, Bread, kingdoms, stars, and sky that holds them all. I, in my pleached garden, watch the pomp, Forgot my morning wishes, hastily Took a few herbs and apples, and the Day Turned and departed silent. I, too late. Under her solemn fillet saw the scorn. — Emerson. EOR we are not sent into this world to do anything into which we can- not put our hearts. We have certain work to do for our bread, and that is to be done strenuously: other work to do for our delight, and that is to be done heartily; neither is to be done by halves and shifts, but with a will; and what is not worth this effort is not to be done at all. Forty-four Forty-five QUaaa of 1930 i ' HE Class of ' 30 is one of the most active groups upon the campus. Not only do the men rank well in scholarship, but they rank high in activities " " about the campus, such as athletics, glee club, band, and other organi- zations. The class has an enrollment of fifty men. Almost one-half of these have attended Elmhurst Academy, previous to their college career, and are thus well acquainted with the institution and its history. This is one of the reasons why the class is so active. Many of these men have a good scholastic standing as has been proved by the eligibility rule of the past years. The fact that several of the fellows are taking part in two or three major activities and still keep up well in their studies in order to remain eligible speaks well for them. In addition, many of the men are. because of necessity, forced to earn the greater part of their money to put them through school. This, no doubt, is an advantage in so far as it puts a man to the test to show what he is made off, however it hast its serious drawbacks. Twelve members of the class have been active on last fall ' s football squad, fourteen are members of the glee club and will help to form the nucleus for next year, twenty aid in making the band a success. These activities are no doubt the major ones on the campus. Several of the men will be out to show their spirit and skill in baseball this spring. " Bub " Schroedel, the president of the class, was justly elected to his post. He is a well liked chap and a clean sport, thus attaining the captainship of the next season ' s football team. Walter Press has shown his ability through his activities in connection with the Elm Bark, the school ' s paper, of which he was managing editor for some time. His place is taken by another sophomore. Other members of the class are affiliated with the activities of the Elm Bark, the Elms of ' 28, Masque and Buskin, Gospel team, I. R. C, Y. M. C. A., etc. The new Gym will be completed this fall. The majority of the class members have contributed to the material success of this new campus improve- ment.

St. Louis, Mo. " Ted " " There are two sides to every question, my side and the wrong side. " Band ' 28; German Club ' 28. Work, study, and the band take up most of Ted ' s time. It was hard to find him at home and when you did find him there he was studying either History or English. Karl Buff Union, 111. " Buff " " Das glaube ich nicht. " Librarian I. R. C. ' 28; Vice Pres. German Club ' 28. " Kass-Has. " When you hear this famous ex- pression you know thai Karl is around. Hobby: Advanced chemistry and electricity. When you wanted to know anything about radio Karl could tell you about it. Helmuth Buchmueller, Minonk, 111. " Buck " " A cheery smile and a line worth while. " Band ' 28. Buck sure could make that cornet talk. He was a real asset to the band. Although being a newcomer, he fell right in with the bunch. Everett Caldemeyer, Mt. Vernon, Ind. " Calde " " Things he does and thinks now and then are often far beyond our ken. " Elm Bark Staff ' 28; " Elms " Staff ' 28; Masque and Buskin ' 28; Student Union ' 28; Oriental Club ' 28; Band ' 28.

Wilbur Dicke New Bremen, Ohio " Dicke " " I ' m gaining weight, going out for football next year. " Band ' 28; I. R. C. ' 28. Dicke lived on potatoes and eggs to gain weight.

" Glee Club 28; Masque and Buskin ' 28; Band ■28. ■■Qh, Pshaw.

He delights iri sending frequent missives to St. Joe. " Nuff sed. Fred GaeBLER . . Cleveland, Ohio " Gabler " " Hey. hey, head linesman! " Football ' 27; Varsity Club ' 28; Y. M. C. A.

Hubbard, Iowa " Klemme " " Born for Success. " Band ' 28. Leonard made use of every minute. He even used chapel periods for study hours. Outside of attending classes he jerked sodas at a down town drug store. August Grollmus . St. Louis, Mo. " Owgust " " Whoo ' s Dat Man? " Glee Club ' 27, ' 28: German Club ' 28.

Although lEd managed to make the team in any sport he entered, tennis was his specialty: he also ranks very high in his classes. Elmer Jeschke . . . Marissa, 111. " Priest " " The wind that blows the whistle doesn ' t move any machinery. " " Holy Wow " Jeschke Sr. is a very likable chap and oh how the girls do know it. He ' s always " right there " when there is fun or mischief to be had or fomented. Arnold Kugler . . Lenzberg, 111. " Kugler " " Someday I ' ll be a preacher.

" Cookie " " The mildest manner and gentlest heart. " Glee Club ' 27, ' 28; Band ' 28: Elm Bark Staff ' 27, - ' 28.

Cleveland, Ohio " Heger " " To sleep or lie in bed and read is my greatest ambition. " Band ' 28. Heger believed in the proverb: " Don ' t let your studies interfere with your college education. " To be able to study, one must first have his sleep, at least so Kurt says. Robert Klusmann, New Salem, N. D. " Bob " " If you hear Klusmann moanin ' , It ' s just Klusmann trombinin ' . " Band ' 28; Elm Bark Staff ' 28; Class Treasurer ' 28. By looking at Bob one would not know that he came from the state of alfalfa and jack rabbits. Bob is a good fellow to have as a chum ; he never refuses anything whereby he can do good. Carl Kraenzel . . Hebron, N. D. " Doctor " " Hye there, dumb jack, why weren ' t you at the meeting last night. ' ' " Glee Club ' 27. ' 28: Band ' 28; Class Historian ' 27. ' 28; German Club ' 28; Masque and Buskin ' 17. ' 28; I.

But listen, that ain ' t all, I ' m on the Student Union, Committees large and small; I like organizations, so I ' ve tried to join them all. Victor Langhorst . Sappington, Mo. " Vic " " History tomorrow? What do I care. Let ' s play pinochle; ' Blitz ' won ' t care. " Band " 28. If you wanted Vic you had to go to Breezie ' s room. He was either playing pinochle or studying Greek. William Munz . . Hudson, Kan. " Bill " Bill IS very quiet, In his own original way. But whether or not it ' s bashfulness Is something we can ' t say. Football ' 26, ' 27, ' 28; German Club ' 28; " E " Club ' 28; Band ' 28. Bill was good in his classes. But let us not forget his ability as a gridiron guard. No, he isn ' t Irish. Fifty Hans Muelle;r . Blue Springs, Mo. " Hans " " Oh, boy; Hot date ' . Ash me!!!! " Glee Club ' 28. Hans is not very big. but he is all there. The weaker sex worried him greatly. Edward Meinders Ackley, Iowa " Ed " " Love waineth not. " Masque and Buskin ' 27, ' 28. Ed was not worried much about his subjects but a certain dame in town caused him trouble. Maybe some day you ' ll get her, Ed. Benno Ott Chicago, 111. " Teeter totter, teeter totter, home, dinner and rest. " Football ' 26, ' 27; Varsity Club ' 28: German Club ' 28. If you want an argument on religion call on Ott. Benno ' s dad requested Coach Hale to either make a man or a grease spot out of him and it seems as though the coach did his share. EWALD PauLSMEYER . Chamois, Mo. " Oswald " " play the clarinet, I am no musician yet; But please have patience And you will hear some syncopation. " Glee Club ' 28; Band ' 28. You could always hear Paulsmeyer.

" Glee Club ' 28; Band ' 28; German Club ' 28. Freddie always put up a neat appearance and more than one fair damsel succumbed to his win- ning smile. His hobby was memorizing German poetry. He might truly be termed " The Gentle- man from Indiana. " Arthur Newell . . Wausau, Wis. " Art " " Even though vanquished, he can still argue. " Argument was his chief asset, and girls his chief fault. Every girl he knows is named Dorthy. Siegfried Recht Cecil, Wis.

His friendly willingness to help made him valuable as well as popular on the campus. Henry Renken Okawille, 111. " Speed " " dare do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none. " Glee Club ' 27, ' 28. Speed claims life is what you make it and he is trying to make the most of it. If it ' s a ticket you need, go to South Hall and see Speed. St. Joseph, Mo. Herman Ritter . " Porky ' " I ' m proud to announce as one of my claims That I hail from the home of Jesse James! " Masque and Buskin ' 27, ' 28; Sec. ' 28: Oriental ' 28: Band ' 28; Elm Staff ' 28; Y. M. C. A.

Nestle in orchard bloom, and far on the level land Call him with lighted lamp in the eventide. Thick as the stars at night when the moon is down, Pleasures assail him. He to his nobler fate Fares; and but waves a hand as he passes on, Cries but a wayside word to her at the garden gate. Sings but a boyish stave and his face is gone. I saw history in a poet ' s song. In a river reach and a gallows-hill, In a bridal bed, and a secret wrong, In a crown of thorns; in a daffodil. I imagined measureless time in a day. And starry space in a wagon-road. And the treasure of all good harvests lay In a single seed that the sower sowed. My garden-wind had driven and havened again All ships that ever had gone to sea. And I saw the glory of all dead men In the shadow that went by the side of me. — Stevenson. — John Drinkwatcr. OliaHH of 1931 ' j O Elmhurst College, in September. 1927, there came a group of men, V y sixty strong, with high aspirations and a willingness to do their part regardless of what the task might be. The professors gasped at the sight of this large stream of young men, who, we must admit, were young in life ' s experience. It was a trying hour for us when we made our first appearance on the Elmhurst College Campus. The welcome and the open hearts of the older students soon made us feel at home, and in a short while there had begun the " steady grind, " in which we timidly took part. As the days and months slowly passed, we grew more and more ac- customed to our environment. In the days that were at first filled with dark- ness and gloom, there began at last, to creep a ray of sunlight. Our acquaint- ance with our fellow students continued to grow and we began to feel that we were at least a small part of the mighty two hundred. Then came the field of activity in which, to a considerable measure, we indulged. The football season opened with a " bang " and we are proud of the fact that in our group there were men who possessed enough ability to play, and help to lead the team on to victory. Not only in football did we have men who could take a part, but in basketball as well. However, though they were handicapped to a very large measure because of the lack of an ade- quate gymnasium, they nevertheless displayed talent. The wonderful Elmhurst College Band! We cherish the fact that the greater part of these men are of our group. Faculty, fellow students and friends of Elmhurst College: We, the class of ' 31, freely declare that we are glad to be with you, and that if service, loyalty and dependability are desired, we assure you we will do our part.

With the Freshman Class of last year the absolution of the Academy began. As a result, the Academy was very small this year. During the last few years the College has steadily been growing at the expense of the Academy. Although the Academy has been rather small, it has done a great deal to uphold the honor of our Alma Mater. It has been well represented in most of the activities on the Campus, such as athletics, band, glee club, and other organi- zations. It also took a very active part in dramatic work. Every year a large percent of the graduates of the Academy matriculated into the College. Thus about half of the College students have formerly been Academy students. Most of us are sorry to hear that the Academy will exist no more as time goes on, but yet we are glad to sacrifice in order that the vision of the Greater Elmhurst may be realized. The memories of the Academy shall always bring back pleasant thoughts to our hearts. 5i.rf3 Sixty-one H. Barth, Blaufuss. Stoerker, P. Tress V. Barth, A. Suedmeyer, Ludwig, H. Grunwaldt, Nitz M.

C J In these beginning years, development of the Union has progressed slowly and steadily; a foundation for the future government of the students and by the stu dents is being firmly laid. By experience, better ways of self- government have been learned during these formative years, and care has been taken in establishing precedent. The Union acts as an organization for helpmg the student find a place in the group, for undertaking various group activities and, in co-operation with the Administration, for regulating campus life. This co-operation between the officers of the Administration and the representatives of the student body is becoming closer, and it is probably more satisfactory in its results than m many other colleges. When the college authorities and the students ' representatives sit in conference on problems of college life, that life is certain to be happy. Last September the work of the Union was rather slow in getting started because five men elected to the Executive Committee of the Union did not return to Elmhurst. Oliver Langhorst, the president, was in this group, and without a leader the plans previously made were not carried through as quickly as they would have been had the Executive Committee remained as elected m the last school year.

For this reason the Program of the " Y " was slow in getting started. However, a new Cabinet was finally organized and several departments carried out splendid programs during the year. Two Deputation Teams were organized under as many Captains, for the purpose of visiting and conducting programs at the neighboring churches. Regular trips were made to Chicago, for the purpose of visiting some of the Evangelical Churches there, where programs, designed to leave something of a lasting value were conducted. Monthly visits were made to the Bensonville Orphans ' Home, where services and entertainments were provided for the children. The " Y " has also planned and made arrangements, with the aid of the Student Union, to hold a Service Conference at the opening of the next school year. Sixtv-three H. Barth, A.

It aims to study and discuss these problems, and to foster an attitude of good will and fair play towards all peoples. The club meets every other week for the discussion of topics on which several members have prepared papers. Questions brought up are answered by the leader or by some other member. This helps the others by clarifying their ideas on some subject about which they may not have been so well informed. Among the topics taken under consideration during the past year were our relations with Germany, Nicaragua, Russia, the League of Nations, Prance and Great Britain. Especially interesting were the discussions about war and the possibilities of abolishing it that arose from these topics. The club is aided by a fortnightly summary of international events sent out by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and by numerous books and pamphlets given by the same institution.

This club is sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. as one of its activities. It is the desire of the Club to be- come better acquainted with the Orient, with its customs, religious life, and ideas, so that we might understand it better. During the past school year, the club met one night each week for an hour of very interesting and enlightening discussion. Our group meetings were informal and each member was given the privilege of leading the group in discussion, thereby giving the members opportunities for self-expression which creates leaders. Many good and varied books have been discussed, among them being: " The Christ of the Indian Road, " " The Life of Mahat Ma Gandhi, " " Sadhu Sudhar Singh, " and " Mother India. " So you see, ours is a specific, yet a gen- eral phase of the Orient and mainly of India. The Club is well pleased with the interest shown by its members and is looking forward to a brilliant future.

Ziilauf, Ritter, Ernst Otto Nitz President Herman Ritter Secretary Martin Ernst Treasurer O AN Elmhurst student the name Masque and Buskin is at once associated with the annual fall play. For the past three years the Masque and Buskin has had charge of practically all dramatic activities on the campus, and for the last two years its major plays have been presented in other cities. While the major play is the high spot of the club ' s activities, and every member hopes to gain a place on the cast, still it is by no means the only thing that the club does. If a member does not make the cast of the major play he is not out of the activities of the club for there still are the minor plays for which he may try out in order to gain experience. The club also seeks to bring reviews of plays, and other material of interest to dramatists, before its members from time to time. The regular semi-monthly meeting always includes an enjoyable social hour at the end. Sixty-six On November 25th, 1927, the play, " The Goose Hangs High, " was presented in York Theatre to a large Elmhurst audience. This was a fine type of play, superior to that usually attempted by a college group, and it " went over big " with the audience. The success was very materially heightened by the excellent work of the group of Elmhurst girls who supplemented Masque and Buskin members on the cast. There still remained the Cincinnati presentation, on December 7th, and inspired by its first success, the cast and its managers worked even harder to accomplish a still more finished presentation. These efforts, through the splendid coaching of Miss Hazel Stevens coupled with the experience gained, made it possible to give a fine interpretation to a fine play, in Emery Audi- torium, Cincinnati. Unfortunately the audience was small but this in no way detracted from its enthusiasm or from the dramatic success of the presentation. The cast retains some very delightful memories of " The City on the Ohio. " It is the sincere hope of the club that it may continue and even extend its outside presentations among Evangelical circles, and it hopes in the near future to make a Chicago presentation, as well as one in Elmhurst, a regular annual event.

The newspaper, which is published weekly, contains, aside from news of general student interest, a humor section, a regular section devoted to current literature and drama, and a student forum. The literary and drama sections which were innovated during the current year contains reviews of current books and plays. In accordance with its principle of being the students ' publication the editorial staff has seen fit to introduce a Student Forum in which rnembers of the student body other than staff members may frankly express their opinions on subjects of interest. The publication seeks to promote all worthy student enterprises. The editorial policy of the paper has always been to reflect student sentiment. Plans are being considered to make the Elm Bark a laboratory for classes in journalism in the college.

GILB ERT WINTERS .Crrcu afron Mgr. 5 0 THE business staff of the Elm Bark goes the responsibility of making the publication a financial success. During the current year publication costs were met about equally by the circulation and advertising depart- ments. Progress was especially manifested in the advertising department during the year 1927-1928. Local and national advertising have both increased much more than over any other corresponding period in the history of the publication. The circulation department is steadily increasing the circulation of the Elm Bark among the friends and alumni of Elmhurst. In order to meet increased publication costs, the staff staged the three act comedy, " The Poor Nut " on the nights of May 11th and 12th. The business staff is constantly striving to make it possible to offer sub- scribers a bigger paper. Plans for next year are already being made whereby it will be able to publish a six page paper of greater length and width. Sixty-nine Nitz, Ritter, Krueger, Ernst Kracke, A.

The Editor and Business Staff were " elected during the middle of the first semester: however, the entire staff was not completed until the end of the semester. At the beginning of the second semester work began in earnest and three months the book was on the press. Due to the fact that this volume is dedicated to the Greater Elmhurst, it was necessary to make several radical changes in the style, especially in the art work. Our readers will first note the complete departure from the old style of cover and cover design. Also it will be noticed that this year was the first time a staff ever attempted to carry out a coherent theme, that of the Greater Elmhurst. A year book to be of memory value should portray m its theme the contemporary spirit of the student body. The average student at Elmhurst is constantly looking forward. He feels no ties of traditional sentiment. He feels, however, as if he were on the threshold of a greater day for Elmhurst. A year book theme which embodies his hopes and aspirations for a greater Elmhurst will itself act as a reminder of his college life. Seventy Rest, Ludwig, Schmiechen, P. Press H. Barth, Winter Elms luattiPHH taff Herbert Barth Business Manager Gilbert Winter Advertising Manager Samuel Schmiechen Circulation Manager XT IS generally admitted that one of the most difficult tasks which campus activities undertake, is that of financing the Elms. More money passes through the hands of the Elms Business Staff than through the hands of any other campus organization. Immediately after election in the fall of 1927 the Business Staff laid down their plans in a detailed budget. There are three main sources of revenue for the Elms: Organizations, circulation and advertising. Organizations are taxed according to the space which they occupy and the ability with which they are able to pay. More than a third of the income must be contributed by the circulation department. The year book is of course of primary im- portance to those on the campus and it relies mostly on its student subscriptions. Many alumni and friends account for a substantial part of the sales. By far the largest income is netted by selling advertising. This year ' s staff initiated a new system of rates which, on the whole, seems to be more satisfactory than last year ' s system. It is the plan of the staff to place a copy of the Elms in all the waiting rooms of Elmhurst. This will give more value to the advertising space and will help to place the Elms on a firm financial footing. Seventy-one Stoerker, Munz, Bendigkeit.

Kug-ler, Buescher Fred Krueger President Herb Barth Vice-President — TN ATTEMPT has been made during the past few years to establish an 1 I athletic club upon our campus. It seems as though every attempt met ■ with failure, and it was not until the latter part of February of this year, that such a club presented any signs of reality. A small body of twenty-five members met for the first meeting and attempted in their own crude way to establish a firm foundation for an athletic club, which would prove its worth upon our campus. The question of membership was the first to arise, and it was decided upon that active membership required the possession of one major letter, or two reserve letters. The purpose of the ' E " club is fully defined as an organization to estab- lish a higher enthusiasm for athetics and social events. Never before has there been taken such a step in an advancement of this type. The first social event fostered by the club shall be a banquet at the close of the baseball season in honor of the members of the baseball team. The club hopes to administer more such events as this in the future, and with the co- operation of all the members of the school, shall endeavor to form an organiza- tion which is greatly needed upon our campus. Seventy-two Seventy-three ■ (Eoarli Balp ' a port HE college year of 1927-1928 has not been the best year Elmhurst J College has enjoyed in athletics, but the indications for the future are bright. The completion of the new gymnasium will afford intramural basketball as well as intercollegiate play; the bleachers will be available for football, and it is hoped that the plans for the new campus will allow for the complete grading and finishing of the athletic field. The 1927 football season was not as successful as the two preceding seasons: an average of 375% was made with three vic- tories, one tie, and five defeats. Some fine new players were enrolled in the fall, but several old stars were badly needed in the close games. The play was not as consistent as in former years, and the defensive work was not on a par with the offense. The open game was resorted to with success, but the fine plunging and off-tackle offense of 1925 and 1926 was seldom in evidence. Prac- tically all the 1927 squad will be back in 1928, and a successful season should result. Minor injuries all during the season kept the team from being the smooth working machine that was desired. The tie with the traditional rival, Wheaton College, should have resulted in a clean-cut victory, but was forgotten in the excellent passing . game against the American College of Physi- cal Education. Probably the best two games were against Morton College and Mount Morris College — the first a victory and the second a defeat. The two poorest games were against Milton College of Wis- consin, a very strong eleven, and Lisle College, an eleven that smothered Elmhurst with a mediocre team. No games have been played by the 1928 baseball team, but the early practice periods show more strength than in 1927 or 1926. The batting is more skilful, and the defensive strength of the team should stop many oppo- nents. But four letter men are back: the remainder of the team must be made up of new men. More good pitchers are on hand, and should be able to carry the burden of the fifteen game schedule without much trouble. This is in the nature of a swan song, for I shall leave Elmhurst at the end of this school year. My six years as director of athletics have been happy ones for me, and I hope that I have benefitted athletics while here. Many Elmhurst men, both Academy and College, have played on teams I have attempted to coach, and I wish them farewell and God-speed with the very kindly feelings of one who has played and traveled with them as teacher and friend.

The game was played during a beautiful sunny afternoon. The turf was soft and also in excellent condition. The North Central team outweighed our men thirteen pounds to the man. Our average weight de- creased considerably when Krueger was forced out with a twisted ankle and when Bockhorst was forced out with a twisted knee. The Hlmhurst boys showed plenty of grit and fight but the Naperville boys could not be subdued. The outstanding players were Krueger. Bockhorst, Bendigkeit. Lodhoiz. Bier- baum. Payne. Schroedel. A. Suedmeyer and Storch. After the game each Elmhurst man lost two to three pounds which shows that the boys put the best they had into the game. Elmhurst 12 Morton 6 The second game of the season was played with Morton at Cicero. The game was played on a cool and clear day but it was very wet underfoot. Both teams were approximately the same in weight. Elmhurst s first touchdown came in the second quarter when -Herb " Barth skirted around left end for ten yaards. The play after the touchdown was not successful, in the third quarter " Milf Bierbaum caught a 35 yard pass and ran 15 yards for a touch- down The play after the touchdown was again unsuccessful. Brandon our quarterback, received a bad cut eye. The treatment of the Morton crowd was excellent and Morton ' s players were a real bunch of sportsmen. ELMHURST 12 WHEATON 12 No doubt, those who saw the game played against Wheaton on our field in 1925 can remember the fierce struggle which took place against our bitter rivals which ended in a victory for our eleven. This year again Elmhurst Sefenty-eight took on the Wheaton eleven with the rivalry between the two schools at its highest point. The weather again was clear and sharp with the field somewhat springy The game was a fight from the very beginning until the end with the Elmhurst team not quite settled until the beginning of the second quarter. The first touchdown was made by Brandon who ran 45 yards after receiving a " special 4-pass to quarterback at right end. " The headlmesman called the play back on the belief that an eligible should not receive a forward pass until he had crossed the scrimmage line. The six points were awarded Elmhurst between halves. The try-for-goal was missed on a pass. The second touchdown was made by Bierbaum who took a " special 4-pass to left end " in the fourth quarter to tie the score, which remained the same until the end of the game. Storch received a twisted ankle, Bierbaum a badly scarred face, and Schwantes a black eye and a very bloody nose. One hundred Elmhurst rooters managed to see the game. We will again play Wheaton on our gridiion this coming fall and we sure do hope that our boys will give them a real battle. Elmhurst 47 Am. Coll. Phy. Ed. 0 The American College of Physical Education came to Elmhurst with an eleven that had the weight of a Big Ten eleven. The Elmhurst boys soon got into action at the very beginning and the big boys fell by the wayside as can be seen by the score. The Elmhurst boys seemed to have snapped out of a trance and to have forgotten their game of the week before. The weather for this game was excellent and the field was in perfect shape. Touchdowns were made by Brandon, Bockhorst, Bierbaum. Payne, Krueger, Barth and Buescher. Twenty-eight players were used by the Elmhurst team. The side lines were decorated with a good number of town folks and visitors. Seventy nine Mt. Morris 13 Elmhurst 6 One of the best games of the season that the Elmhurst team played was with Mt. Morris on our field. The weather conditions were favorable and the field was hard and dry. Both teams were very evenly matched. Elmhurst made its touchdown in the first quarter at the West goal on an end run from the full-back position. The fake kick ending in a pass was not successful. Mt. Morris received the kickoff and marched from its own 28 yard line to Elmhurst ' s 12 yard line. A pass to the left and a touchdown with a place kick after the touchdown was made in the firstquarter. In the third quarter Mt. Morris ' left-half broke through the Elmhurst right-guard and raced 40 yards for their second touchdown. A good number of rooters accompanied the Mt. Morris team. CRANE 13 ELMHURST 0 Crane College has one of the best teams which Elmhurst played during the season. Crane made its first touchdown in the first quarter when a back plunged through right-guard. Their second touchdown came in the fourth quarter on a long end run to the left. This game was played during one of the coldest days of the season. Our boys did well and showed Crane that they had plenty of spunk and fight .md were able to play a clean and hard game. Elmhurst 20 Aurora 0 Homecoming Day was celebrated with a victory over Aurora College on November eleventh, Armistice Day. The game was called during the last quarter because of the terrific wind, rain and hail storm. The first touchdown was made by Bockhorst on a tandem formation to the left. Bierbaum made the second touchdown on a long pass and Krueger made the third on a return Aurora punt and then one of the best runs amounting to 45 yards after ward- ing off five of the Aurora players. This game had the largest attendance of the season with many of the boys from St. Louis back to see their Alma Mater Milton College 39 Elmhurst 0 The longest trip of the season was made to Milton, Wisconsin, when the Elmhurst boys played Milton College. The trip was made in our college bus, " Butch " Wendland ' s Packard, Professor Stanger ' s Oldsmobile, and Bert Weller ' s Dodge, in a rain storm all the way. The game was played on a field that was slippery and covered with puddles of water. Our boys did not seem to have much luck in this game because of making this long trip and because the Milton team was composed of several former stars from Beloit. Krueger. Bockhorst and Buescher received injuries which kept them out of the game for the rest of the season. The entire squad saw action in this game. LISLE 52 ELMHURST 6 The last game of the season was played with St. Procopius College of Lisle Illinois. Our eleven was completely crippled. The entire backfield was out of the game because of injuries received in previous games and several ot the linemen were out of the game. Our touchdown was made by Branaon who caught the Lisle men napping at one time and managed to get our onlv tally Several hardy Elmhurst rooters withstood the nipping cold. Eighty A Eputm flf lljf 1527 IFnntball paann HE 1927 Football Season opened as usual with many good men missing J from the squad. Pete Langhorst last year ' s football captain and main- stay, of whom we all expected many great things did not come back, but transferred to Illinois. Nevertheless the team looked promising. Herb Barth this year ' s captain was relied upon to " smash " the line, Jimmie Payne and Bierbaum, Storch combination to execute the passing. Schroedel was always to be counted on in the line. Pete Bockhorst delighted the " rooters " in his dodging tactics. Fred Lodholz scared m any a man into submission by his looks and his pithy remarks. The team might have done very much better, but injuries was our biggest drawback. " E " Captain Barth had a very hard season. He was kept out of the first game due to an injury to his arm, which crippled the backfield. He had to contend with a bad knee throughout the entire season wearing a knee brace, and at the Aurora game injured his shoulder to such an extent that he will not be able to play football any more. " E " Injuries. The Milton game proved to be a bonecrusher. Buescher had a tooth knocked out, Bockhorst sprained his ankle, Krueger tore a muscle on his knee, and the line were covered with mud and blood. Lodholz sprained his ankle in a practice scrimmage before the Aurora game. Due to injuries the Lisle game was lost. Our back field were minus three of the regular men, and the subs were also in a weaker condition. " E " " Bub " Schroedel our star tackle was our outstanding player of the season. He won the blanket for being the best player and highest valued man on the team. " Bub " is next year ' s captain and we wish him a good season. " E " Coach Hale is leaving us this year. We shall miss him because he did more to promote football up here than anyone, and because of a financial handicap did most of the work himself. His dreams of greater athletics at Elmhurst are gradually coming true, the new gymnasium is steadily nearing completion. We all wish " Coach Hale " unlimited success in the future, and we thank him heartily for what he has done for Elmhurst. Eighty-one Eighty-two NOLTE Catcher Payne.

The limited squad is composed of some good material, among which are several veteran players. An ambitious schedule of fifteen matches has been arranged for. If the first two weeks of tennis practice may be used as a criterion, it is safe to say that most of these games will result in victories for Elmhurst. 3 nm0 in THE TEAM Otto Hille .

(gle? Ollufa flNCE the establishment of the School of Music last year, Elmhurst Col- lege underwent a complete remolding within its musical sphere. Probably no organization experienced these enhancing effects more than the Glee Club. The Glee Club is composed of thirty members, all receiving additional vocal training besides the regular full rehearsals. It has been its aim to become so proficient and capable of rendering highly classical songs in such an excellent fashion as to put them on par with any collegiate chorus in the country. Con- sequently the members rehearse diligently three times a week; additional re- hearsals being held during the beginning of the year in order to be perfectly conditioned for the coming concert season. But never could the accomplish- ments of the past nor its present caliber have been gained were it not actuated by the excellent conducting of one who is well known in and about Chicago as a builder of choruses, namely, J. C. Minnema, Dean of our School of Music. The Glee Club has a large, versatile, highly classical repertoire, consisting of both sacred and secular selections such as Palestrina ' s high masses sung in the original Latin, chorals sung in both English and German, prominent anthems and French, English and Bohemian folksongs. The greater part of the program is sung a capella. To insure a pleasing program through contrast and variety the Glee Club is assisted by two fine artists who are very talented and are instructors in their respective fields at the School of Music. Maude Bouslough charms many an audience with her delightful soprano voice. A different type but just as enjoyable a form of entertainment is a group of clever readings. Since the resignation of Miss Hazel Stevens because of her illness the vacancy has been very ably filled by Miss Eva Woodchick. No Elmhurst Glee Club has had or will have for many years to come an accompanist equal to Waldemar Hille. Numerous concerts have been given over radio, at churches, woman ' s clubs and at Medinah Temple. On two occasions joint recitals were given with the Band at the Church of Peace and at Orchestra Hall. An unusual privilege was an invitation of the organization to sing at the Oak Park Congre- gational Church, one of the largest of that denomination. The high point of the concert season was reached when a four-day tour was made through Indiana and Kentucky. At present an extended post- season tour to the Atlantic coast is being planned and appears promising, lasting over two weeks and touching the leading cities in the east. The tour will com- pletely eclipse any one heretofore undertaken. The future holds infinite opportunities for the Glee Club. If their plan of being entered into the intercollegiate glee club contest during the ensuing season materializes, they will have taken a great stride toward the realization of their dream. Ninety-five Ninety-sir Sljp Sanir ONE of the most active organizations on the campus at the present time is the band of which John Minnema, dean of the School of Music, is director. In fact, judging by the interest shown by the fellows, it is the most important activity for the time being. Despite the fact that it had a " mushroom " growth it outlives the saying " a thing quickly begun is quickly undone. " It is an eighty-five piece band with the sections well balanced and adequately supported. One of Dr. Niebuhr ' s (the late president) , wishes was to see such an organization flourish upon the campus, to promote a greater interest for the cause of Elmhurst among the students. This wish culminated when the School of Music was established under the leadership of Dean Minnema, who had a wish similar to that of Dr. Niebuhr. It was the Dean ' s plan to have a band out in the field in the sport seasons of the year. Thus, last fall a small group, forming the nucleus of the present institu- tion, began to rehearse. The school provided the instruments and more fellows turned out. Soon, when it was announced that the band would have suits for all the members, still more men came out. The members have been doing hard work during the past months of the winter and the result has been very aston- ishing. Most of the credit for the wonderful accomplishments goes to the director, John Minnema, but a great deal of the praise also rests on the fellows for the willing work that they have done. To see the band in full uniform is something out of the ordinary. To show their appreciation every member decided to put ten dollars in the treasury to help pay for the suit. Rev. Brodt of Chicago, chairman of the executive board of Elmhurst College has responded very favorably. He shows great interest in Elmhurst and her future and a good word must be said for him. Several concerts have already been given and many more are to be given before the school year is over. The city of Elmhurst will be royally treated to several Sunday-evening open-air concerts this spring. That ought to bring the citizens of this town and the College in closer harmony. From all indications, this organization will live to promote the welfare of all on this campus and those interested in the school. Ninety-seven Ninety-nine On September 15th every one was ready to begin a new year of school work, but every one was sorry that Dr. Niebuhr could not be with us. Dean Mueller addressed the students at the opening exercises. There were several yf ' lco L.«A new profs among the faculty. Some of the blue freshmen -Cj ' U R ■ vgj-c so green that they expected a number of the younger profs to be in their midst when the time came to wear green caps. t|On the 21st, a copy of the " Freshman Bible " was given to each student. HThe Glee Club members were anxious to begin their work again after an enjoyable post-season tour. Dean Minnema of the School of Music began the work of developing the prospects of a sixty piece band. IjThe Elm- hurst Grid Squad drilled consistently dur- ing the severe heat of the first two weeks of their practice. tjThe Elmhurst School of Music started its work early and a rapid growth was shown over its work of last year. llOn the 21st the first mass meeting was held, at which the freshmen received their customary adornment. Rules were also laid down and it was necessary for the Frosh initiation to begin immedi- ately after the meeting. ||Dur- ing the week of the 25th, the College Library instituted a monthly Book Night. jjOn the 30th, the college foot- ball squad was given a severe setback at North Cen- tral, 43-6. The calamity was due to many injuries received by the team. IfPlans were again being made to organize the Zoo League and boxing and Mrs. D. Irion celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary ClaSSes. Dr. One Hundred One Hundred One We began the month with the Varsity winning over Morton, 12-6. l|The Students Union organized again, and chose Dan Lang as Chairman. IjThe Masque and Buskin swung into action again and tryouts for the fall play " The Goose Hangs High " were held on the 3rd. jlThe students heartily answered the call to aid the Mississippi flood relief work. jjOn the 8th everybody was out, holding their breath, to see Elmhurst and Wheaton fight to a dead- lock, 12-12. The coach, single-handed, also won a big battle. IjThe dream, on the campus of a new Gym, no longer remained as a dream after the Chicago conference on the 4th to 7th. tjThe International Relations Club re- organized and began their work for the new year. ||Several Freshmen decided that they did not like the Upper Classmen ' s rules. Well, two of the Freshmen decided a few days later to take a long midnight walk and a third one enjoyed resting in a cell. Four upper classmen also enjoyed themselves for one week off of the campus while serving a suspension sentence. jjOn the 15th the college football squad won an easy victory over the American College of Physical Education. The score being 47-0. jjArthur Schaible was re-elected editor for the Elms. l|On the 16th many of the college boys enjoyed a large meal and " fair " company as a result of " Student Sunday " which was supervised by the College Church. We are sorry to say it, but some fellows were not back in time to eat at the Commons in the evening. The Grid Warriors were honored by a banquet on the 22nd as a recognition of their good work. jjThe Junior Class organized on the 19 th and chose Milton Bierbaum as president. After the first grade reports had been given out. Prof. Krull announced that many of the applicants for his football team had been ac- cepted without any doubt as to their wonderful ability in ful- filling the requirements necessary to be a member of his team. One Hundred Two One Hundred Three S(i%»ti- Roof The Forensic League resumed its work on the 1st of the month. IfProf. Boza Oumiroff returned from an extended trip abroad. The Elmhurst College Band held its first rehearsal which showed many prospects for a great future. ||On the i n 5th, the football team fought viciously against the heavy Crane liM( JL team, but lost, 13-0. 1]The Glee Club broadcasted a much • pfiHB ' ' ' enjoyed concert over W L S on the 9th. IjThe Senior Class ■ elected " Pete " as its president and the Sophomore Class elected " Bub. " IjAnother great Homecoming — many sensations. The faculty staged a baseball game. The band made its first appearance. Dr. Niebuhr visited us. There were also friends, eats, fun, a football victory over Aurora, 20-0, and RAIN. Rev. Leonhardt acted quite natural all day, even the rain couldn ' t rush him. We are sorry that we cannot give the results of the class rush as there wasn ' t any. Dean Mueller decided that there would be no class rush as the Frosh and Sophs were so friendly and modest toward each other that neither would attempt to win over the other and thus there would be no S-T-R-U-G-G-L-E. IjThe remnant of the crippled football team received a set back from Milton College, 39-0. t|The Y. M. C. A. began its work again on the 16th. Norman Zulauf became the new president. IjThe Varsity gets a walloping in the final game from Lisle, 52-6. 1|On the 21st the Oriental Club or- ganized and began its work. flThe Masque and Buskin presented the fall play, " The Goose Hangs High " to a full house at York Theatre on the night of the 25th. Nothing happened until the third when the Sociology students and Dean Mueller shocked every one by paying a visit to the slums of Chicago on a field trip. l|On the 6th the Junior Class organized a basket ball team again as m previous years. Ovl the 8th, nineteen " E ' s " were presented, behind the footlights of the York Theatre, to the Elmhurst Grid men. Every one looked pretty and several girls enjoyed sitting alone while the boys went up to enter the limelight. IjThe Masque and Buskin restaged their play. " The poose Hangs High " at Emery Auditorium at Cincin nati, Ohio, on the 9th. l| " Bub " Schroedel, to whom a blanket has been awarded as the most valuable player of the 1927 team, was elected grid captain for 1928. ||Rev. Timothy Lehmann of Columbus, Ohio, was elected to take the place of Dr. Niebuhr as President of Elmhurst College. jjNorman Zulauf decided that five dollars would come in rather handy in buying some-o-n-e a Christmas present, so he made a daring visit to " The Greeks " in his pajamas. He succeeded — but how? tlOn the 16th we walked off the Campus with grips in our hands and sang " Home, Sweet Home " — for it was vaca- tion time. On the 25th most of us found that there really was a Santa Glaus. One Hundred, Four One Hundred Five ianuarg ' %™«»w r " j January the 1st and 2nd were happy days, but the J students returned to their work on the 3rd — not so happy. HThe School of Religious Education began its work at the College on the evening of the 9th. The management of the Dining Hall was placed in the hands of the new dietician, Mrs. Ehlers. IjThe new Gym began to take form rapidly. 1]The Rev. Mr. Hahn addressed the student body on the 11th. On the eve- ning of the 1 6th, Otto Nitz was elected president of the Masque and Buskin to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Norman Zu- lauf. ||Mr. E. A. Ahrens joined our faculty and took up the - work of teaching Sociology and History. jjRev. Mr. Goetch Upen Qll gave a lecture about our Missionary work on the 24th. l|On the evening of the 21st, the Elmhurst Juniors walloped Elgin, 39-20. l|The semester exams suddenly cast their spell upon us. For a whole week — no more shows — no more pinochle — just " cram. " isive The new semester opened on the first day of the month. Most of us started studying vigorously, because we wanted to fulfill those New Year ' s resolutions — No! we didn ' t forget them — somebody always goes to the trouble of reminding us. ||Sixty thousand dollars was embezzled from the Gym Fund — " What next? " " Now isn ' t that simply a shame? " Don ' t get excited- — some folks just misinterpreted the Fake Edition of the Elm Bark. The " German Club " organized and started its active work on the evening of the 8th. At the regular Wednesday Assembly Period we listened to Rev. Carl Crusius speak on " Lincoln. " jjOn the 10th, the College Band cam.e out in new uniforms — " We ' re in the Navy now. " IjThe Junior Class held a " stag " party. jjMiss Stevens, who was in charge of the Dramatic Arts, was forced to abandon her work because of illness. Miss Eva Woodchick took her place. IjThe Band and the Glee Club gave a concert at Medinah Temple on the 16th. jjOvercome by studying and love, another student planned an unsuccessful attempt at suicide — so sad? jjThink- ing that he was in Chicago, Walter Press flashed forth a revolver in his Sociology class and let loose a volley of one shot — another unsuccessful attempt, very sad. jjOn the 29th Sher- wood Eddy addressed the student on " Campus Problems. " One Hundred Six One Hundred Seven The new Elm Bark Staff, with Karl Rest as Editor, pub- lished the second edition of the month. IjThe Badger team won the Zoo League championship. IjThe cornerstone of the new Gymnasium was laid on the 14th. Crowds — music, and a freezing temperature. jfBesides Greek books, Miss Powell added another nuisance to the library — a pup. 1|The inevitable happened — Prof. Bliss became engaged. jlThe Frosh lost to St. Lukes, 27-24, and the Juniors swamped the St. Lukes Com- rades, 42-22, on the same evening. The letter men of Elmhurst College held a meeting on March 14th and organized the " E " Club. llThe Band and Glee Club gave a joint concert on Sun- day afternoon, March 18th, at the Church of Peace in Chicago. IjThe Sophomore Class became enthusiastic and held a private party (?) — it is rather difficult to convince some people. [Everyone was sorry to hear of the death of " August, " who was the care taker of the college campus. jjEnthusiasm was soon shown m baseball and tennis.
