Winters President Samuel Schmeichen Vice-President Clarence Beehler Secretary and Treasurer in I ■■ ! i T Ml ill IN September of ' 25 a large group of freshmen found themselves stranded on the Elmhurst College Campus. This group of young men were entering a period of four years work under the guidance of teachers and instructors. They were beginning one of their most memorable experiences of life, four years of study and enterprising cooperation. The freshman class numbered eighty-one members which was over the ma- jority of the three upper classes. With the spirit which everyone has when undertaking something new the class of ' 29 quietly planned a class rush which did not become a reality. It was in the freshman year that the members of the class had to adjust themselves to the new conditions in which they found them- selves and of which they gradually became a part. Some, however, could not make the adjustment and dropped out, others could not make the grade on account of circumstances, and others saw the need of finishing earlier. From the freshman year on through until the senior year they impro ' ed little by little. The members soon realized their purpose at college and many had to work extra hard to recover from some grave set backs. The class room was the center of learning. It was there that the class of ' 29 was introduced to new knowledge and where certain requirements had to be met. Each week the efforts grew more determined and the results more hopeful. The adjustment to the group soon drew the interest of the members of the class in school activities. The athletic teams were supported by a fair majority, the Glee Club was always well represented, the Y. M. C. A., the Elm Bark and the annual always found willing helpers in the class of ' 29. In the dormitory the members of the class of better. Many hapjjy evenings were spent trying problems or combining efforts preparing for tests, learned to know each other better the social life was a group vuidertaking, a class Outing in Graue frequent social gatherings were always welcome, enterprises grew lasting friendships, which will as a unit after thev leave their Alma Mater. ' 29 learned to know each other to solve some of the student As the members of the class developed. Going to theaters ' s woods was not neglected and Out of these school and class hold the class of ' 29 together A. Blaufl ss. I V S nt Tivcnty-cifilit HERBERT J. EARTH A. B. Hampton, Iowa The last of the Barths has set a record — a unique yet an appealing one. He held re- sponsible positions in many organizations, and executed them with remarkable diligence. The substance of a successful college ca- reer to this lowan was to play football and to see that his activities did not interfere with his dates. He is a firm expounder of " academic freedom. " His friends are many, his enemies few, if any. Success in life will be but a fitting climax to his successful college career. ERED ANDERSON A. B. Waterloo, 111. " Andy " knew that great men are not born ready-made, and that in the course of their development they do n ot make themselves heard and seen unnecessarily, but that they devote themselves to diligent study and hard work. " Andy " was the silent member of our class. His thoughts were bigger than his words, but he projected them with some dif- ficulty. His wise-cracks were full of humor and always brought their smile. He will al- ways be respected by his classmates and will be remembered for his friendliness. CLARENCE BEEHLER A. B. Wakarusa, Ind. Because nf his unbiased opinion and good judgment, Beehler is considered one of the leading men of our class. He is a persistent worker, doing everything to the best of his ability. We know him best as the assistant librarian and an active participant in foot- ball, basketball, and tennis. His athletic articles in the Elm Bark and I ' llmhurst Press are evidences nl his lit(r,ir - ahilit . His versatility is shown liy the facl that he is quite at Imme among his books, in llie con- cert liall. (ir at the playhouses. Hih future ha unlimited pussihilities. ' J ' wriil y-iiiiir ARNOLD BLAUFUSS A. B. Denver, Iowa One could not be on the campus a day without learning to know Blaufuss. Occa- sionally, he had lucid intervals. During these times he was a good student, an efficient store manager, and an Elm Bark editor. But when he wasn ' t busy you couldn ' t tell if he was going to talk seriously or rough up your hair. Blaufuss was the " happy-go- lucky " sort, and in this, his strongest char- acteristic, there was never a let down. He was an enthusiast of English Litera- ture, a devotee of the novel. Going to the city to see plays and hear concerts was his particular delight. His sincerity and depth of character demanded respect. MILTON BIERBAUM A. B. Freelandville, Ind. Fineness of manhood is not limited to ex- ternalities but consists also of unshaken men- tality, human respect, and personal dignity. " Milt " regarded his studies as stepping stones to a greater self, never as a wilder- ness in which to get lost. Together with his spirit of independent ac- complishment went a spirit of fellowship that made him a leader of our class. He had a vital interest in all the activities of the school, but especially in athletics, from which he got his greatest enjoyment. He also derived a great deal of pleasure from literature. CARL BURKLE A. B. Geneva, Iowa Carl was the quiet philosopher of the class. In all his quietness there was a depth which few could fathom. A refreshing sense of humor went with his remarkable applica- tion to his studies and his music. He was slow to criticize and ready to give praise where deserved. Carl ' s willingness to help in school activi- ties and his winsome personality ' won for him a place in the heart of his classmates. Philosophy was his major and he always stuck to it when others wanted to give it up in despair. His scholastic ability ranked him well up among the brains of the class. Black Creek, Wis. In spite of what time has in store, Wil- mer ' s happy disposition and friendly smile always remain the same. In his eye the merry twinkle reveals that he is always ready for fun. His easy, helpful comradeship often drew fellows to his room when they wanted to profit by a pleasant hour. Wilmer, also, has a wide range of appre- ciations. Where others see only unshoveled walks he can still admire the grace of an elm furred in snow. His philosophy is that man must live as well as exist. Certainly the future must have great things in store for him. HILMER GRUNWALDT THEODORE HAEFELE ' ' A. B. A. B. M- Black Creek, Wis. A college graduate is supposed to be a gentleman and a scholar. Hilmer is both, and a musician as well. Beauty, not only in music, but in almost any of its numberless forms, finds response in his nature, and is there reflected in a fineness which is the head-line of character. Underneath his ex- terior that is always calm and composed, he hides a real depth of feeling and a genuine warmth of friendship. Hilmer has convic- tions and lives up to them. His ideals are never for display, but for use. Though quiet and unassuming he has the vision and the practical seriousness so necessary to success- ful effort. It If i St. Louis, Mo. " Ted " was the chief syncopator of the sen- ior class and it was a common thing to find him in the music house trying some new hit. Yet, if need be, he could also play the works :0 of some great master and he enjoyed singing in the Glee Club from his Freshman year on. Writing letters to his " weakness " in St. Louis was another hnhhy. Among all these activities he found time to finish his college work in tlirce and dik- half years. Greek was his pet subject and he aspires to become a (jreek professor. ' )in- best wishes go with him. I ' hirly-onc HARRY C. KOELLING A. B. Hoyleton, 111. In discussions about the relative merits of the big league players one was apt to run into a tasty argument with Harry, who is an inveterate fan and who knows all the dope. His study of history furnished an excellent field from which to draw irrefutable argu- ments on any subject. Harry had " the old class spirit " and took an active part in class activities, whether social or athletic. Although he had his lighter moments, he displayed at times a serious side to those who knew him best. He had his own ideas about philosophy and psychology. We shall remember him for his wholeheartedness and spontaneous response. WALDEMAR HILLE A. B. Round Knob, III. You can ' t kid " Husky. " His witty sar- casm flavored with a lot of good humor soon quiets his aggressors. In music he is a genius. Besides giving many interesting and delightful piano recitals he has been a faithful accompanist and solo- ist on the Glee Club for four years. His repertoire includes all the great masters. He is a scholar and a thinker with a true philosophy of life. His success in different fields is the reward of earnest and persistent effort. We feel certain that in the future we will read Waldemar Hille ' s name on many concert programs. FRED A. KRUEGER A. B, Mannheim, 111. Fritz joined our class in the junior year and became an active member. He was a good entertainer and was always ready to work, which found him taking part in many activities. His willingness to help brought him to the position of Student Union presi- dent which he ably executed. His ability on the violin, the piano, and the horn was of value to the band and the social events of the class. He was a good student. Even if his studies were neglected at times, his term reports were always good. Next to his studies he found pleasure in basketball, base- ball, football, and friends among girls. " Per- sonality " was his asset. OTTO E. KUGLER B. S. Lenzburg, 111. No matter what was to be published, Kug- ler was sure to have a hand in it. He is among the first to receive a B. S. degree from Elmhurst College. Eventually he will become a doctor. " Ott ' s " athletic career was confined to a little baseball and lots of tennis. For sev- eral years he was a member of the varsity tennis team. His ready smile was often a subject of pleasing comment. Life is a serious thing with Otto, but it also has its lighter mo- ments. op ij f i I I f MARTIN ERNST A. B. Independence, Mo. " Marty " is one of those who has not near- ly tapped all of his resources. Entirely un- assuming, he goes about accomplishing one surprising thing after another. Scholastically, he kept up with the best ; his practical achievements were varied and thorough ; and socially, he was right there with his friendly smile and pleasant disposi- tion. He had three hobbies : books, radios, and photography. Multiply these interests by a rare sincerity and application and what have vou? LUDWIG KUTZ A. B. Rock Island, 111. Kutz was noted for his dominating, high- pressured humor. Much of it was original or at least originally adapted from the " Line. " As a student he excelled with -Sociology and Biology as his favorite subjects. The time he did not need for his studies, he worked, managing sfimehow to sandwich in Glee Club, in which he took an interested and active part. " L. C. " was well liked, for bis presence drove all loneliness away. W ' e know he will make good. Thirl y-thrce OTTO NITZ B. S. Sigourney, Iowa " He who is not ready today will be less so tomorrow. " Otto ' s many interests and love for activities kept him a busy chap. He did things wholeheartedly whether in the chemistry room or on the tennis courts. His natural aptitude with the mechanical led him to create and invent. His home-made enlarg- ing machine is a perfect success. Otto en- joyed " bull sessions " and shared many cakes with his friends. A reserved, though radiant, personality full of sincerity. FREDERICK LUDWIG A. B. Milwaukee, Wis. " Fritzie " was the storehouse of knowledge for his classmates, for when we ' d want in- formation we ' d go to him for it instead of the encyclopedia. It was his genius to col- lect, retain, and have at immediate use iso- lated facts on every conceivable subject. The week ends Fritz rarely spent on the campus. He visited his friends and relatives, and from each of his excursions he would return with sweets that he generously pro- duced when his friends came to his room. A happy countenance, a friendly demeanor, a witty repartee, a scholastic record unsur- passed by any one in the class — these are a few of the things by which we remember him. LOUIS A. PIEPER A. B. Waterloo, 111. " Louieee " is a most practical man. " Things worth doing are worth doing well, " is his motto. No wonder his arguments proved so convincing. It was pleasant, and in many cases amus- ing, to engage in a conversation with Pieper, for his characteristic wit and humor always left one walk away with a happy heart. A practical man also has diversions.. For Pieper they were the Glee Club. Band, and Quartet. The Glee Club owes most of its successful tours to his noble management. Tliirty-four PAUL PRESS A. B. St. Louis, Mo. Paul was the man of the hour. No task was too large nor too small for him to lend a helping- hand. Hesse liked his salesman- ship, the girls liked his company, and the fellows liked his indomitable optimism and almost nervous energy. He was a diligent student, finding his spe- cial interest in the racial and social problems of the present day. Unlike the musical in- terpretation of his initials, his actions were of the fortissimo type. LESLIE POESCHEL A. B. Hermann, Mo. What a place Leslie ' s home town must be. In it he found an example for every social, moral, and religious problem that came up for discussion. His was a spirit that was hard to depress. Strong in his likes and dislikes, he was equally willing to keep his head up against the criticism of others. He liked languages and the girls liked liim, neither of which had anything t(j dn with the other but they both suited Leslie to a " T. " RUDOLF J. PRIEPKE B. S. Clarksville, Iowa " Rudy " is a scholar, a business man, and a musician. We will long remember him, because of his good natured explanations in the Anatomy class when chemical elciuents were concerned. " Rudy " was a partner in the ninltinraph establishment of " Priepke Winters. " He put out some real work, with " (iibb) " han- dling the sales end of the job. As a musician and a chemist I ' l ' iepke ranks high. For three successive years he has n-v ) a very valuable asset to the Cilce ( hih. Re- gardless of wln ' ch lu-ld lie enters, we are convinced that " l iul. " h.is a hri,t;lit I ' ulnre. ) I ' hirly-fr.r i ■■ A I Ml o ■JO O. FRANK STORCH, JR. A. B. Hamilton, Ohio " Doggie " was by nature born a friend of merriment, yet he had serious moments, and in them he accomplished much. Books and athletics went hand in hand with him, and his appearance on the Honor Roll and on Athletic teams speak well of him. Being Captain of last year ' s baseball team is an achievement that is self-speaking for his ability and popularity as an athlete. Storch is the type of a student that will settle down to hard work and get things done in good order. SAMUEL SCHMIECHEN A. B. Swiss, Mo. " Sam " was quite the serious lad — always finding something to do. If he wasn ' t in athletics he would devote his time to music, or at times even look at a book. " Sam " has a definite, worth-while goal, which is the ministry ; and that he will make good is not questioned. His pleasing per- sonality will be a great aid to him in this field. Our friend from Swiss is one of these silent lovers. If you doubt this statement, try to become his friend, gain his confidence, and in his moments of weakness he may re- veal much. For " Sam ' s " love is something vital, real and divine. GILBERT W. WINTER B. S. Hubbard, Iowa Wide awake, a ready smile, a go-getter— that ' s " Gibby. " Whenever the drab side of anything was presented, Winters could be depended on to counter it with an appropriate and unique witticism. With him at the helm the seniors couldn ' t go wrong. A man to be trusted to restore order out of chaos — that ' s " Winters. " He is one of the first four men of the College to receive a B. S. degree. He is a chemist of no mean ability. Ability, depend- ability, and initiative are the qualities that mark " Gibbv " as a future successful man. hi CO I- I I ' I ri Thirty-six KARL REST A. B. Marshalltown. Iowa From the desolate arid wastes of the Iowa plains, hails " Rest. " His first days at Elm- hurst were days of trial and struggle. He could not find himself. However, he soon became attracted by the teachings of Bauer and from then on he was a faithful disciple who sat daily at his feet. Today he is our Twentieth Century Plato. But don ' t get the idea that " Rest " is a grind for he is popular with his classmates, was interested in all the college activities, and even forgot his philo- sophical loves at times for those of the weaker sex. He shall not be forgotten by those with whom he made contact. NORMAN ZULAUF A. B. Baltimore, Md. Here we have an original fellow from one of the original thirteen states. " Normie " delighted in doing things differently and pull- ing of¥ novel stunts. No one will forget his appearance at the " Greeks " in a suit of flam- ing " evening clothes. " " Norm " took his first year at Johns Hop- kins. Since his coming to Elmhurst, he has been a leader on the campus. He was a hard worker, a faithful student, a true friend, and a jolly good sport. His warm cordialitv will carry him far in his chosen field. The Class of 1930 Reinhard Schroedel President Edwin Hoffman Vice-President Carl F. Kraenzel Secretary Frederick J. Sager Sergeant-at-Arms Robert Young Historian TO ANY one not a member of the Class of ' 30 the history of its adventurous past holds little significance and less interest. To us, who have enjo ' ed its pleasant membership for three years, the dreams which we dreamt and realized, the social accomplishments we attained, and the man - unrecorded hap- penings we participated in, are idolized memories. True to custom, we began our Freshman year in an orderly manner. Iradi- tion dictated that a president be elected. Edwin Beier accepted the position, and with keen executive ability developed what later proved to be a class that took pride in itself, that was daring in its attempts to be different from former classes, that was successful in carrying out many wishes that still lie hidden in the hearts of present day students. A year passed and the class realized that Ed. deserved a rest, so the responsibility of piloting the organization was wished upon Remhard Schroedel. " Bub " was successful to such a great extent that a ten-second vote by the class at the beginning of the present school year gave him the " job " again. " Bub " was different from the start, for he abolished the dry, routine reports of the various class officers. (Class du6s were ancient history already.) Meetings began with, " There i.S no old business, so let ' s start something new. " At one special meeting some one suggested that each member contribute a dollar and a half for " general expenses. " The idea was adopted and several days later we discovered what the general expenses were. A wonderful investment for " one- fifty ! " Lots of crepe paper and some punch ! In the minds of the class members the affair will always stand out as the greatest and most pleasant social achieve- ment ever undertaken. In scholastic and athletic achievements, members of the Junior class ranked with the best of other classes. Honor roll students were always among us. When we graduate we will have the distinction of having had three football captains chosen from our class, a record that no class has ever equaled. Last year ' s tennis captam, as well as this year ' s basketball pilot, were from our group. This year marks the end of our careers at Elmhurst for not a few of us. Next September will find many of us at Eden Seminar) and some attending schools elsewhere. Wherever we may be, we will remember Elmhurst not as a plot of earth with buildings planted on it, but as an atmosphere wherein we formed our ideals and ambitions to become a useful part of this interesting world. A final historical confession to the Senior class may be in order here. The old " Fairies of the Woods " aff ' air committed in Graue ' s Woods was the work of members of this class who were out for excitement one night and instead found a bag of delicious cookies.

Class of " 31 " Robert Baldauf President Leonard Kramer J ' icc-Prcsidciit Glen Most Secretary Arthur Schei ndt Treasurer Henry Brueseke Sergeaiit-at-Arms IN the fall of 1927, approximately fifty-five fellows entered Elmhurst College to begin their college careers. The members came from as far north as Minnesota, as far east as New York, as far west as Iowa, and two of our members hailed from Texas. We received our initiation, as is customary, with but the minimum of lU- eft ' ects. By this time we had adjusted ourselves to our new surroundings and had begun to cooperate with the rest of the student body. Several of our men came out for football and gave a good account of them- selves. In the Zoo league the championship team was composed of men of " 31 " whose eft ' orts were directed by the incomparable Schlundt. In the spring several of the men earned their letters in baseball. We were also well represented in other organizations on the campus. During our first year the Band was a new organization on the campus. We are proud of the fact that the majority of the members of the Band were of our class. We also had a good representation in the Glee Club. In the fall of 1928 we returned to resume our work for another year. We found some new faces in our group and some familiar ones were missing. Upon reorganization Elmer Lambrecht was elected to guide our destinies as Sophomores. Various committees were appointed by president Lambrecht to carry out the plans of the class. Among these were the athletic and social committees which have been functioning in commendable manner. Teams in the different sports v -ere organized by the athletic committee whereas the social committee sponsored a social before the Christmas holidays. But all in life is not fun for we must need also study and we h(Ji.e that our stay at Elmhurst will be looked upon as a creditable one. Robert Baldauf— " Bob " Massillon, Ohio " To this feUoiv zvith hair so red, Foreign languages hold no dread. " Class President ' 29; Managing Editor Elm Bark ' 29; Band ' 28, ' 29. To be a professor in foreign languages is Bobbie ' s ambition. He showed his scholastic ability by " dragging down " A ' s, and his ambition by the way he handled his position on the Bark staff. With all these ambitions " Bob " is bound to be a success. Christopher BoLANn— " Chris " Petoskey, Mich. " Quietness is conducive to deep thought. " He ' s a real guy, " Cliris " is a complacent, unassuming fellow. These characteristics have won him many friends.

Elmer Broetzmann — " Pastor " Wausau, Wis. " Why go other men ' s ivays When your ozvn are just as good? " Band ' 28. " Herr Pastor " was a studious boy and never interfered with the girls. He was quiet, but ever mindful of his student relation- ships. Alkrek BucH UELLER — " Al " Minonk, 111. " Life is a jest, all things show it, I thought so once, hut nmv I knoiv it.

" Work first, and then pleasure. For, honor lies in honest toil. " Band ' 29; Glee Club ' 29; Oriental Club ' 29; Masque Buskin ' 29; I. R. C. ' 29. Buck is a fellow who is well liked by all on the campus. There is a reason for that — he does the right thing at the right time. ■He believes very implicitly in " all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. " Lloyd H. Hegem an— " Hegeman " St. Joseph, Mo. " None but the brave deserve the fair — azvoke one morning and found myself famous. " Glee Club ' 2S; Band ' 28, ' 29; Masque Buskin ' 28, ' 29; I. R. C. ' 28, ' 29; Oriental Club ' 28, ' 29; Y. M. C. A. ' 28, ' 29. Paging the boy from " St. Joe " — the village around which the world is built. Mischievous? No, not much. If a noise is heard in the dormitory, it implies that Hegeman is around. . nyway, he ' s a good scout; always willing to lend a helping hand to some one in need. Carl Grathwohl— " Grathwohl " Billingsville, Mo. " Love conquereth all. " Band ' 28, ' 29, Secretary ' 29; Oriental Club ' 29; Y. M. C. A. ' 29; Masque Buskin ' 29.

Forty-eight Carl Horst— " Horst " Carlyle, 111. " Wisdom groivs in quietness. " Band ' 28, ' 29. Did you ever hear a fellow make an alto horn sound like a sax. That ' s Horst. He is one of the mainstays of the band. He has also been consistently on the honor roll which proves that he is a student, also. In track he specializes in the weight events. Horst Jeschke— " Horses " Marissa, 111. " That ' s right, ain ' t it, professor? " Band ' 28. , We ' ve always wondered why Jeschke asks so many foolisli Questions in class. He is a hard worker, and is earning his way through college. That speaks well for him since he has always managed to keep his grades up. Richard W. Jungfer— " Tee Hee " Philadelphia, Pa. " Behold the original copy of a big moment. " Masque Buskin ' 2.S, ' 29; " Poor Nut " ' 28; " So This Is London " ' 29; Band ' 28 ' 29; Cheer Leader ' 28, ' 29. Here he is, none other than " Tee-Hee " himself, quite the sheik with nothing to worry about. Rather slow in getting the mail but getting it just the same. Did you ever see " Tee-Hee " in the telephone booth stretching a nickel for all it ' s worth? Quite a treat. Edwin L. Kind— " Kind " Elgin, 111. " And ivhere a lady ' s in the case, . You knozv all other things give place. " Band ' 28; Y. M. C. A. Cabinet ' 28, ' 29. Kind was kind and congenial as well as humorous. He said nothing, but did much. Let ' s have more like him, Elgin.

C. : Glee Club ' 28 ' 29; Debating Team ' 28; " The Poor Nut " ; " Take My Advice " ; Elm Bark Staff ' 28; Y. M. C. A. ' 29. " Doc " is one of these .iovial, friendly fellows — always ready to lend a helping hand, especially when it came to strengthening an argument. If your tongue ever ached for exercise all you li.-ul to do was to go up to see " Doc, " because he can argue " like noliody ' s business. " Forty-nine Erwin Krueger — " Achtel " Sheboi ' gan, Wis. " A jolly (jnod fcllozv zvhose heart is right, He [nulled a joke with all his might. " Glee Club " 29 ; Quartet ' 29 ; German Club ' 29. We ' ll venture to say that many think " Achtel " is going to be a mission- ary. At least he always looks so serious. His wit, however, is ap))re- ciated by all who know him. He has a fine baritone voice which has won him a place on the college quartet. To look at his chest you would think he was a man. Elmer Lambrecht — " Lamebrain " Chicago, 111. " I hugged her and I kissed her in the moonlight . and the moon gave it all aivay. " Class president ' 29 ; Glee Club " 28, ' 29 ; " The Poor Nut " ; " So This Is London " ; Football ' 28 ; Masque Buskin ' 29; Elm Bark Staff ' 29. Elmer is a real friend, who peps up any conversation by his ready wit and good humor. Elmer decided to leave us at the end of the first semester, and we all regretted his absence from the campus. However, we are sure that his cheery smile and willing spirit will aid him in making a real success of whatever he undertakes. Glenn Most— " Most " Elmhurst, 111.

Fred Schuetze — " Schuetze " " Life is but a thought. " Fred has a philosophy of life, which is of his own making. You should ask h.im what he thinks of this life.

Armin Suedmeyer T. N. TiEMEYER. . . Carl Friedrichsen Edward Roberts . . Scrgeant-at-Arms President J ' ice-President .Secretary Treasurer IN September, 1928, forty frivolous freshmen made their debut in Ehnhurst and trod for the first time on the cordial college campus. Overawed at first by the stately seniors, jocular juniors and sophisticated sophomores, they struggled along timidly and awkwardly. This lasted but a few weeks. For soon, they began to discard their natural feeling of inferiority and took their places in the rank of the great advancing " machine of educational progress. Freshmen they remained in rank only, but in accomplishments the}- had quickly learned to give of their best to their school. Their Alma Mater was soon foremost in their minds and, to uphold her name they devoured page after page and absorbed word after word so that, when the first period was over, they boasted of the highest averages in the school. Not only did these humble new-comers prove their ability and quality in the academic routine but also in other fields. Their part in sports was not to be despised in the least. Never before in the history of Elmhurst have the fresh- men received the majority of football honors. They played basketball brilliantly, sang sweet songs in glee club, played peppy pieces in the band and participated in every activity. Now as the year draws to a close, we of the freshman class pause to look back over our first year at Elmhurst. In doing so, we find that, despite the work and occasional struggles, we have completed one of the happiest and most successful years of our lives. For this we wish to thank very heartily the fellow students whose fellowship we enjoyed and the faculty members who were more to us than mere pedagogues. They were our companions and guides on the long quest for knowledge and intelligence. « Elmhurst, we, the freshmen of 1929 saluate thee and wish for a successful and immediate realization of the many noble dreams of the Avorthy men who have made thee what thou art.

The Student Union Fred Krueger . . . . Armin Suedmever Edwin Hoffman . . Gilbert Winters . President Jlee-President Secretary Treasurer S it is truly the purpose of our Student Union to unite the students of Ehnhurst College in common interests, to promote common enterprises of its members and their school, and to serve as a medium for expression, opinion and action ; so it has tried again this year to strengthen the belief of all students in the possibilities of a Greater Elmhurst. It has tried to take the daily happenings of the campus and transform these daily services: of a few, into rare opportunities that have been of help to other fellow students. In its various branches it has ever attempted to be more useful ; and to make all of the fellows on the campus, " brothers under the skin. " It improved initiation conditions and common manners, efficiently backed the Homecoming and the various social activities with outside groups, supported heartily the Elms and the Elm Bark ; moreover it aided one hundred percent strong in the sodding of our own new athletic field, and in short, curtailed the ideas of their being Illinois-Elmhurst or Missouri-Elmhurst men on the campus, but afforded all various opportunities to be loyal to Elmhurst without using any quali- fying adjectives. Few " parlor patriots " still exist, and the Student Union, in its desire to dti more good, tried to enable all students to become better and more reliable work- men of Elmhurst, helping them to serve their fellowmen with zest and fidelity, so as to make our college a better place to live and have our being in. Thus has the Sttident Union functioned for the fifth consecutive year; it has created new attitudes, established more uplifting precedents, promoted more worthy enterprises and truly endeavored to strengthen the ties that bind both Facultv and Students in their promulgation of a Bigger and Better Elmhurst.

DeLuryea President Ed. Hoffman Jlcc-Presidcnt H. J. Barth Secretary G. W. Winters Treasurer THE YOUNG MEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION, after being entirely reorganized, has been more succe.ssful in accomplishing its work during the past year than ever before. This is due to the fact that the group as a whole has been more interested in the work of the " Y " and also to the faithful work of the Cabinet. The members pledge themselves upon becoming members to abide by the plat- form of clean speech, clean sport, clean scholarship and clean living. The mem- bers ' duty is not only to respect the four planks of the " Y " platform but also to co-operate in whatever manner he may be able in the creation, maintenance and extension throughout the College and community of high standards of Christian character. Last fall a very successful student conference was held on our campus. To meet the social needs of our campus, the " Y " furnished a room in the basement of Old Main for recreation purposes. The " Y " also sends delegates to attend important intercollegiate conferences and conventions in different parts of the country. In every major sport the " Y " awards an honorary medal annu;dl - to the best and cleanest player. By developing a close personal fellowshij) and a frankness of expression among the students, the " Y " creates an atmosphere of Christian wholesomeness m the dormitories, on the campus and throughout the College.

Niederhelman President Carl Kraenzel Secretary Artliltr Sclilundt Treasurer SINCE the Masque and Buskin came into being in 1925 it has had charge of l)ractically all dramatic activities of the college. The club has aimed to foster dramatic art in any way that it may. It presents one major play a year and seeks to put on a series of minor ones, in order that men interested in dramatics ma} ' gain experience. Current plays are reviewed and discussed so that men may become acquainted with the best productions of the season. The club also helps to meet the social needs of the members through social hours in connection with regular meetings, and through parties and other functions. The initial presentation of the Masque and Buskin was " Three Wise Fools. " This play was ])ut on at the York theatre in 1925, and met with enthusiastic success. The following year " ' You and I " was presented before an Elmhurst audience, and again before a crowded house in St. Louis. The 1927 production, " The Goose Hangs Eligh, " was played in Elmhurst and also in Cincinnati. In 1928 the organization was first privileged to present its play from its own stage, and " So This Is London " was staged in the new gymnasium on November 22 and 23. ■ CO hi ill It has always been the ideal of the club to present a superior production to its audience. To this end the best available coaching is procured, and the play and cast carefully selected. The favor with which these plays have always been received has indicated clearly the wisdom of such a policy. " So This Is London " is a delightful comedy of international misunderstanding. Of course the self confident American youth wins his British sweetheart in spite of the prejudice each set of parents has against the native land of the other. Incidentally the audience enjoyed plenty of good hearty laughs, and at the same time felt that touch of something sincere and wholesome underneath the lightness and humor. The play was splendidly interpreted, well acted, and carefully staged. The Masque and Buskin is this year making a new experiment in presenting two major plays. The comedy " Take My Advice " is being prepared for presenta- tion in April. The cast is being selected as carefully, and preparations are being carried out as extensively as they were for the fall play, and the organization is looking forward to a still greater success. The work is under the direction of Miss Gilbert, of the Dramatic Arts department. " So This Is London " Haas, Lambrecht, Miss J.

The Oriental Club Herman Ritter President LoNNiE Matzenbacher Sccrctarv Henry Guenther Treasurer HE ORIENTAL CEUB is an organization which has grown from the Mission Study Class, this group has held its place on the Campus for many vears. The Oriental Club is sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. ' as one of its activities. It was organized in the fall of 1927, since that time the club has enlarged its scope to become better acquainted with the Orient, its religious life, ideas, and customs, so that they might be better understood among the college students of today. One night every two weeks is set aside for an hour of discussion. The meetings are conducted in a formal manner. At each meeting a different member has the privilege of leading the discussion group, this gives opportunity of self- expression which will create leaders. This year the club gave a play entitled, " The Rev. Mr. Rookie arrives in India, " in the Parish Hall of St. Peter ' s Church. We have also studied, " The Christ of the Andean Road. " In this way we get a general conception of the Orient. The club is yet very small but is growing rapidly due to the interest taken by the students of the college, this interest shows a great future for the organiza- tion.

Baldauf Managing Editor Everett Caldemeyer Business Manager Robert Klussman Circulation Manager HE ELM BARK is the official weekly newspaper of Elmhurst College. The publication of the paper is entirely in the hands of a staff of students elected by popular vote of the student body. The chief concern of the Elm Bark Staff is to print a paper truly " Devoted to the Interests of Elmhurst College. " The Bark contains a record of the main functions of all the various clubs on the campus, write-ups and announcements of all sports, and a Student Forum C(jlumn in which any student may set forth his personal opinion on any subject. There is also a joke column, and a column of Library Notes besides the regular editorial column. The financial } art of the Elm Bark is handled by the business staff which has done much this current year to put the finances on a much sounder basis than before. The circulation has increased especiall} ' among iItosc outside of the college campus. The Elm Bark Staff " of 1928-29 means of various changes and innovation-- has made a better and more interesting l{lm Piark not onl - for the students on the campus but also for those on the outside who ma ha e an inlercsi in the happenings on the campus.

The 1929 Elms Staff THIS Elms represents the eleventh attempt of students of Elmhurst College to publish an annual. A great obstacle was soon encountered in the form of a deficit from last year ' s annual, which made the task of publication of this annual a little dubious. If the task was to be undertaken, the staff realized that they must not only face the difficulty of making this annual a literary and financial success but they must also face the deficit of last year. With an eager and grim determination to make the publication of an annual a success this year, the staff began their work during the early part of the second semester Special attempts were made to reduce the cost of publication. More work was done by the staff this year than was formerly done. Much expensive work, such as the art work was done by the stafl: " instead ot placing it m the hands of a paid artist. Due to the exceptional athletic success of Elmhurst College this year, the staff decided that it would be fitting to carry out an athletic theme, which they have attempted to do. It will be noticed that this is the second time that a staff has attempted to carry out a coherent theme. The Staff feel that their efi:orts are well repaid for they are confident that with the co-operation of the student body the 1929 Elms will be a financial as well as an artistic success. hi Sixty-four ' ma I i cJL l-l II If Li I I IM ri I ' I Ifl ir I ■! m i-l MO l-l Jo 1 1 I " I College Athletics— 1928 -1929 THE success that athletics have met with during the current year has been nothing short of miraculous. The Elmhurst teams have set up a mark which many other colleges can well envy. There are three reasons why this won- derful athletic record has been attained, namely — the new Coach, the new gridiron, and the new gymnasium. Coach jMcFarland, during his first year here, has produced two champion- ship teams. Athletics at Elmhurst have taken a new stand. The football team was made up mostly of green material. Coach McFarland showed his true caliber by molding these men into the strongest football team Elmhurst College has ever known. The Elmhurst gridders played the best college teams in northern Illinois, and lost only one game during the season. They also defeated teams that rank among the first in the " Little 19. " The outlook for the 1929 football season is very encouraging as almost every man on the " 28 " team will be back next year. In reviewing the sports of this school year, we cannot overlook the champion- ship basketball team. The fighting spirit and smooth team-work which the Elm- hurst cagers displayed deserves mention. They placed the best teams in the " Little 19 " and won 15 out of the scheduled 17 games. This record alone is enough to show that the team was extraordinary. The Blue and White quintet also had the honor and distinction of being asked to compete in the National y . A. LT. Basketball Tournament which was held at Kansas City. The . players decided that the trip would keep them away from their classes too long and de- clined the offer. The Elmhurst quintet scored a total of 510 points against 408 for their opponents. This gives the Pirates an average of 30 points for each game played. The basketball team had such a successful season that we can look for big things next year, as the entire team will be back. From all early indications the 1929 track team should have a successful season. Up to date the trackmen have not competed in any meets. A large squad has turned out for practice and there are numerous candidates for each event. I t Sixiv-six Capt. R. Curtis Curtis, without doubt, was the most flashy r u n n i n g guard seen in action on the local floor during the past record season. The success of the team was in a large measure due to his " brainy " playing. Cait. R. Schroedel Schroedel, who plays both tackle and center equally well, is known as the hardest and cleanest player on the football team. He led the 1928 team in the most suc- cessful season ever experi- enced at Elmhurst. F. C. McFarland Head Coach With the coming of Mc- Farland to Elmhurst in the fall of 1928, athletics took a new turn. In the short pe- riod of one year " Mac " has already turned out a winning basketball and football team. Capt. C. Beehler Beehler ' s consistent play- ing won him the captaincy of the tennis team. Led by him the team should again have " easy going " with their current schedule. Capt. F. Coojcson hrank ' is the (Hitstanding man and point getter n the 1929 track le.im. His spe- cia1t ' is the pub ' auh and high jump. Si.vly-sn-rii R T L. T. F. B. 0 P. R. H. The Team Player Position Reinhardt Schroedel , ., (Capt.) R. T.

Morris College ( 1 1 ere ) Elmhurst vs Morton THE Elmhurst football team opened the season by holding Morton College to a score of 6-6. The game was played on York High ' s gridiron. Elmhurst started the game by kicking off. During the first quarter both teams tried a series of line plays but with little result. The Pirates were the first to score in the second quarter, when Brandon put the ball over on a wide end run. Elmhurst failed to kick goal. Morton also s cored in the same period by the use of two well executed passes. They also failed to make their pomt after touchdown. The second half of the game was hard fought with neither team scoring. The Elmhurst team made a good showing in spite of the fact that it was their first game of the season. Elmhurst vs. Wheaton THE Elmhurst Pirates initiated their new gridiron by gaining a decisive victory over Wheaton. Coach McFarland ' s boys surely did make homecoming day one that will long be remembered by the students and alumni of Elmhurst. The first quarter of the game was nothing more than a kicking duel, between the two teams. Elmhurst started the second quarter with a bang and from that time on had the Wheaton team on the defensive. The Pirates made the first touchdown in the third quarter when F. Cookson put the ball over. In the same period Curtis gave the crowd a thrill when he intercepted a Wheaton pass and ran 35 yards for a touchdown. During the last quarter Kerber scored when he put the ball over on a line plunge. He also kicked goal for the extra point. One of the features of the game was the hard tackling of Coach Mcfarland ' s boys. Erwin and Roberts were continuously downing the Wheaton ball carriers behind the line of scrimmage, this was one of the reasons why the Wheaton teami failed to get started. Cookson, Kerber and Curtis scored the points for the Pirates. Elmhurst vs, American College of Physical Education THE Elmhurst Pirates won their second game of the season by defeating the American College of Physical Education at Lincoln Park, Chicago, with a 19-0 score. The blue and white warriors did not seem tO ' have the punch that they displayed against Wheaton. The first half of the game was played on equal terms, neither team making any big gains, although Elmhurst had two chances to score, they did not seem to have the drive to put the ball over. At the beginning of the second half the Pirates seemed to have found themselves and soon started a drive down the field which ended in a touchdown. Frank Cookson was the leader of this attack and made most of the gains. The Pirates did not score again until the last quarter, when after a series of fierce line plunges by Kerber, F. Cookson again carried the ball over from the 5 yard line. During the last few minutes of play A. Cookson received a beautiful pass from Curtis and ran 40 yards for another 6 points. Elmhurst vs, Aurora WE need only to look at the score to see how superior our team was to that of Aurora. Although the Pirates outweighed Aurora they were not by any means playing a team that lacked fight. The Elmhurst backfield ran the ends, plunged the line, and completed passes almost at will. Curtis made the first 6 points for the Pirates early in the first quarter when he hit the line for 15 yards. F. Cookson soon netted another touch- down when he crossed the goal line after a 30 yard sprint. Kerber carried the ball to the 5 yard line on an intercepted pass, and Fritz Krueger put the pigskm over on an off tackle play. Fritz scored again in the second quarter when Curtis threw him a long pass. Kerber kicked goal for another point. The Aurora team showed much fight in the third quarter but were hopelessly outclassed. Curtis intercepted a pass and ran 60 yards to score, a little later his team-mate Kerber broke through the entire Aurora team and raced 60 yards for another touchdown. During the last quarter Aurora punted to Elmhurst and Kerber carried the ball back 35 yards for a touchdown. Neeley made the final score of the game wdien he received a pass from Curtis on the try for the point after touchdown. The entire Elmhurst team played a great game of football and every player was a star. Elmhurst vs. Mt, Morris THE Elmhurst Pirates met their only defeat of the season when they were subdued by the strong Mt. Morris team. Although the Pirates showed plenty of fight throughout the game, they failed to stop the flashy Mt. Morris quarter- back. The first quarter was played on equal terms, neither team threatening to score. Both of the teams played a conservative game and were waiting for a break. The second quarter was fast and furious. It was in this period of the game that the Elmhurst line showed its true worth, at one time tlicy held the strong Mt. Morris team for downs on their own two yard line. Erwin punted beauti- fully and the half ended with the ball in mid-field. On the second plav of the third quarter, Greve, the Mt. Morris quarterback, ran 60 yards for a touchdown, and then kicked goal. It. Morns soon made another touchdown when they blocked an Elmhurst punt. In the last quarter, a pass from Curtis to F. Cookson, netted hUnihur l then- only touchdown of the game. In the last few minutes ,.f ])lay Mt. Morns again scored a touchdown by a long end run. Elmhurst vs. Crane THE game between Elmluirst and Crane wliich cnde.] in a scon-lc- tie, was played on a field that was covered with mu l and water. I )ue to thi-, eondilion of the field, the footing was slippery, and the lleety h ' .liuhurM back-, tailed to break loose and score. ScVi ' lllV-DIU- Tf If we look at the statistics we can see that Elmhurst outplaved their heavy opponents in every department of the game. The Ehnhurst line on numerous occasions broke through the Crane ofifense and tackled the man carrying the ball before he could reach the line of scrimmage. Elmhurst threatened the Crane goal in every quarter but the second, and gained 239 yards to Crane ' s 87. Roberts, Erwin, and Munz played exceedingly good football, both on the ofifensive and the defensive. The Elmhurst goal was never threatened at any time during the entire game. Penalties also played an important part in this game ; Curtis carried the ball over for a touchdown but the score was not counted, as the Elmhurst team was penalized, and lost possession of the ball. The game from beginning to end belonged to Elmhurst, but the wet field and slippery ball prevented scoring. Elmhurst vs. yiilton THE game between Elmhurst and Milton was played on our new gridiron. The day was very miserable for a football game. Rain, sleet, and mud were some of the handicaps both teams had to face. The game started with a bang, both teams trying to score before the mud and weather could dampen their fighting spirit. Displaying their usual pep ; the Blue and White Warriors soon started a drive down the field, which resulted in the only touchdown of the game. Cai tain Bub Schroedel played a wonderful game at center. No matter howi slippery the ball, he always managed to make accurate passes to the backfield. The second and third quarters were very hard fought, both teams putting their very best into the game. Considering the condition of the field, both teams handled the ball very well, and fumbles were few and far between. The Pirates had the edge on A filton in the third quarter, and at one time in that period they were within 5 yards of the goal. At the start of the last quarter Milton threw all caution to the wands and started sending over a barrage of passes hoping that they could score in this way. The large crowd which braved the weather was amply repaid in thrills as some of these passes looked good for a touchdown. The Pirates well deserved to win this game, because of the fighting spirit which they showed. Elmhurst vs» Lisle THE Elmhurst football team finished a very successful season by giving Lisle a good trouncing. The Pirates outplayed their opponents throughout the entire game. The gridiron was a sea of mud, and after the first few plavs, the players were hard to distinguish. The Blue and White warriors did not lose any time in scoring. They plunged through the Lisle line again and again, and soon put the ball over for 6 points. Soon after the start of the second quarter Krueger threw a pass to Curtis, who ran for a touchdown. After the start of the second half Elmhurst blocked a Lisle punt and re- covered the ball on Lisle ' s 10 yard line. After two attempts, Curtis carried the ball over for the second time. Kerber made the extra point on a fake pass. During the last few minutes of play in the fourth quarter Curtis again proved himself the hero of the game by making another touchdown on a line plunge. The game soon ended with the ball again in Lisle ' s territory. Sc-c ' cnty-Hvo I t ' CO CO I " t II I ' I l.l I ' I Scvciify-four The Team R. Curtis (Capt.) Guard C. Kerber Guard E. Roberts Guard E.

Lisle 1st Game I HE Elmhurst Pirates opened the season by giving Lisle a good trimming. The game began with a bang, and during the first ten minutes of play the Pirates displayed a brand of basketball that was good to see. Their pass work- was excellent, and their shooting good. The half ended with the score 23-15, favor Elmhurst. During the second half the Pirates showed a defense that Lisle could not penetrate. Krueger placed a very good game and netted most of the points, of it. The game ended with a score of 44-18 with the Pirates on the long end Elmhurst vs. Mt. M.orris 1st Game T N a hotly contested game, the Elmhurst Pirates beat Mt. Morris by a score - ' - of 28-24. We need only to look at the score to see that the game was fast and furious. From the first tip-ot¥ until the final whistle both teams were using all of the strategy they knew. The score was 20 all with two minutes left to play. The Pirates showed their true worth by outfighting their opponents in these last few minutes. DeLuryea and Curtis put the game on the shelf when each made a goal. In this game the Blue and White cagers showed plenty of team work and the usual pep which is so characteristic of an Elmhurst team. Elmhurst vs, M.ilton 1st Game PLAYING a brilliant game of basketball, the Elmhurst Pirates defeated the powerful Milton, Wisconsin, team by a score of 30-24. Both teams played a verv fast, and at times rough game. The Pirates showed a great deal of im- provement since their game with Aurora. HoiTman was high scorer of the evening with a total of ten points. Curtis and Roberts both played a fine game, especially on the defensive. This was the third straight win for the Pirates and was the last game to be played before the Christmas vacation started. Elmhurst vs, Aurora 1st Game THE Elmhurst quintet won their first game awa - from home b ' a 33-29 score against Aurora College. The game was hard fought from beginning to end. Every inan on the Elmhurst team played good, clean basketball, as did the Aurora team. The center on the Aurora team caused the Pirates plenty of trouble with his ability to make long shots. Aurora was leading until the last five minutes of play when the Pirates put in three field goals which cinched the game. The game was verv exciting throughout and neither team was certain of victory until after the gun liad sounded. Sciriify-six jf-. ' .

They ran up 8 points on the Pirates in two minutes. It did not take tlie " Ehiihurst cagers long to tighten down and strengthen their defense. It was due to the shooting ability of Roberts that the Pirates managed to take the lead at the end of the first half, the score being 19-16. The second half found the Elmhurst boys fighting harder than ever. Curtis gave a real exhibition of guarding and also played a good defensive game. Roberts carried away scoring honors with 12 points to his credit. The game ended with Whitewater trying hard to catch the smooth working Elmhurst team. The Pirates were on the long end of a 31-26 count. Ti l-l (■ ■I Elmhurst vs M.ilton 2nd Game AETER having a great deal of trouble in getting through the snow on their way to Milton, the Pirates made the most of an opportunity and defeated the Milton team by a score of 29-21. It did not take the Pirates long to get their eyes on the hoop, and they were soon sinking some very long shots. DeLuryea seemed to have a magnet on the basket, making 9 points in the first half. Eritz Mo Krueger dribbled through the entire Milton team on several occasions to score. The Milton team was a menace to the Pirates throughout the game, putting in shots that were far better than average. The Pirates fought to the finish and at I " ' the end of the game were still holding the whip hand. ijl 00 Elmhurst vs. Lisle 2nd Game 00 00 THE winning streak of the Pirates came to an end when they were defeated at the hands of Lisle College. The Lisle team ran up a large score early Do ■ in the first half, and in this way had the Pirates handicapped. At the beginning of the second half the Blue and White cagers " found themselves " and soon got " hot " on the basket. The exceptionally fast pass work of the Lisle team gave |1 1 them numerous and many successful shots at the basket. Considering the fact • c j that this was the third game the Pirates had played in four days, the} ' seemed slower than usual. The game ended with the score 34-23 in favor of Lisle. I " I LM c4o Elmhurst vs» De Kalh 3 - 1st Game THE rangy team of DeKalb College succeeded in beating the Elmhurst Pu-ates by a large score. It was not for the lack of a good team that the Pirates ; ■ [ lost; it happened because they were outclassed. The DeKalb team started the J, game in a determined way and kept well in the lead throughout the entire fracas. The boys wearing the Blue and White seemed to lack teamwork. The game was very exciting and both teams played clean basketball. The fast pass-work of the DeKalb team was the chief factor which led to the defeat of the Pirates. The final score was 42-19. Scvcnl-y-ci( lit Scmily-uiiir !■ I l-l I I I Elmhurst vs. Chicago Technical College 1st Game THE Elmhurst Pirates did not have much of a task in defeating Chicago Technical College. The game started out fairly fast, but near the end of the first half the visitors began to tire and slow up, due to the pass work of the Elmhurst cagers. The second half gave the Pirates a chance to run up a large score which they proceeded to do. Roberts was the outstanding player on the Elmhurst team. He not only played a good guarding game, but was also high scorer of the evening. Kerber, playing his consistent game, put in some nice shots from back of center. The final score was Elmhurst, 40; Chicago Tech., 24. Elmhurst vs, Elmhurst Travellers 1st Game DUE to the heavy snowfall in their state, the team from the AA ' isconsin School of Mines was unable to get here to play their scheduled game with the Pirates. Rather than disappoint the crowd. Coach McFarland arranged a game with the local Elmhurst Travellers. The game turned out to be a one-sided affair, the Pirates never being pushed to their limit. Every one of the Blue and White cagers was " on, " and most of their attempts at the basket were good. The Pirates took the lead at the start of the game and held it throughout, ended with the Pirates running up 44 points to the Travellers ' 14. 1 a I •! m ifl 11 t l-l r-i in The game Elmhurst vs. Mt. Morris 1st Game THE Elmhurst quintet showed its superiorit} ' over the Mt. Morris cagers b}- giving them a 40-22 trouncing. All of the Pirates were " on " and made good most of their attempts at the bucket. Due to Kerber ' s close guarding the Mountaineers were held to 8 points in the first half while the Pirates netted 28. At the start of the second period the Mt. Morris team showed a little pep and made 5 goals. The Blue and White basket tossers soon got " hot " again and made baskets almost at will. Curtis was high scorer with Hoffman and DeEuryea running him close competition. Elmhurst vs. The Wisconsin School of Mines One Game THE game between the Elmhurst Pirates and the W isconsin School of ] Iines was a very rough aft ' air. It had all the appearances of a football fray. Block- ing, hooking, and in some instances tackling prevailed during the entire game. The Elmhurst cagers had many shots at the hoop, but the rough guarding on the part of the Miners kept many of these shots from being good. " Big " Erwin was an important cog in the Pirates ' offense, being high scorer of the game. The Elmhurst quintet was leading 23-13 when the game ended. Elmhurst vs. Wheaton 1st Game THE Bhie and W4nte quintet played one of their best and hardest fought games of the season against their ancient rival, Wheaton. The Pirates won the game on sheer grit. They were outclassed by the fast 4ieaton team in the first half due to the absence of Curtis. The first period of the game ended with Elmhurst on the losing side of a 16-5 score. Curtis started the second half and soon had the Pirates working in tip-top order, their passing, shooting and guarding becoming much better. It was during the last few minutes of the game that the Pirates succeeded in catching and finally passing the Wheaton aggregation. The large crowd that was present was thrilled by the exciting game. Score : Elmhurst, 28 ; Wheaton, 26. Eighty 1 Iliflhly-nnc I ' I 1 1 CO .-JO Elmhurst vs, Aurora 2xD Game f 1 HE Elmhurst Pirates had their hands fuU in their game with Aurora. Al- [ J, X though the Blue and White cagers won by the score of 42-30 they were by j I no means playing an easy team. The first half was played on even terms, neither f4- team getting any breaks. The half ended with Aurora leading 18-15. In the second period " Big " Erwin made numerous follow-up shots which put the Pirates ahead. F. Cookson made the most spectacular shots of the evening with his one hand specials. The pass-work of the Elmhurst team was vei-y good, as was their I shooting. They were never pressed to their limit during the entire game, ofo Elmhurst vs, A. C. P. E. Only One Game I ▼ 1 t J " T) LAYING their last and best game of the season, the Elmhurst cagers came I L through to a brilliant victoi-y. The game started with a bang, and both teams ' kept up this fast pace throughout the entire game. The score was nip and tuck and the half ended 13-12, favor A. C. P. E. At the beginning of the second half 1 - j the Pirates snapped out of their coma and started to plav real basketball. Duri mp " C ' O the last ten minutes of the game the Pirates ran up a score which their opponents Elmhurst vs, DeKalh 2nd Game . y ' HT HE Elmhurst Pirates lived up to their name in their second meeting of the ' X season against the DeKalb five. Sparing nothing, they went into the game tooth and claw. Both teams seemed determined to win, DeKalb confident that i ; they would again emerge victors, the Pirates fighting mad to get revenge and ,►1 wipe out the sting of defeat that the DeKalb team had given them earlier in the J season. The game was played with extreme caution, neither team under-rating its opponent. The Pirates led by a small margin throughout the game. Ed. m Hoffman thrilled the crowd when he showed them how side shots should be made. He was high scorer of this contest. The Pirates held their 4 point lead and won with a 28-24 score. I i 0-? Jd Elmhurst vs, Wheaton ' - IJ 2nd Game I I j T N a hard fought and very exciting game, the Wheaton College quintet was -to X forced to bow, for the second time this season, to the smooth working Elmhurst I f i Five. The first half was played with extreme caution, both teams waiting for a break. The Wheaton aggregation led vmtil a few minutes before the half, when Jo the Pirates tied the score, 11-11. The Wheaton team started the second half with blood in their eye. They soon rolled up 19 points to the Pirates ' 12. ' " Big " Erwin was then put into the game and soon started to make things go. It was ■ i ' only in the last few minutes of the game that the Pirates were able to forge ahead. The final score gave the Pirates a one point lead over their opponents, 24-23. 111 1CI..I. 1. .1 ,mi i,.v... .. (5 ... - - 11- were unable to ecjual. The final score was 34-19 with the Pn-ates on the long end of it. This victory gave the Elmhurst boys a clean record at home. They | i | did not lose a game on their own floor. Anyone of the large crowd who saw this cJt-J game would say that the Pirates finished a very successful season in a very inter- esting way. J- E. L. Ei( hty-Hvp The 1929 Tennis Team C. Beehler (Capt. ), A. Sclilumlt, E. Hoffman, W. Hille, U. Kugkr. The 1928 Season THE Tennis Team was composed of veterans and enjoyed a ' ery successful season. Spurred on by some excellent coaching by Coach Rosenbaum the team put forth extra efiforts to win every game. The fact that every man is back again this year gives us hopes of a still better season this spring. This team has done much to demonstrate a real sportsmanlike attitude m athletics. The Team : E.

Elmhurst Track Team 1929 THE 1929 track season was opened with an Inter-class meet when 35 men turned out for the various events. From all indications the team will be well balanced and represented in each event. The scjuad has eight former prep- school stars, who will be a great help to the Elmhurst scjuad in its coming com- petition. This year ' s schedule will give the team a chance to compete against some of the best colleges in Illinois. Seven meets are scheduled besides the National one to be held at Chicago University. We are confident that the track team is capable of making as good a record as the other Elmhurst athletic teams have set up during the current year. 1929 Track Schedule APRIL 5 — Inter-class meet.

Elmhurst Baseball Team 1929 BECAUSE of a much larger athletic program this year than in former years, in the line of track and basketball, it was at first decided that we would not have a baseball team. While the track team was working diligently, a few requests were made for a baseball team. As a result a call was made for all l-jaseball enthusiasts to meet on Tuesday, April 16. About twenty men responded to the call which was a large enough number to warrant the organization of a team. Practice began immediately and games were scheduled. Since there was a delay in the organizing of the team, it was decided that the schedule would be limited to four or five games. This baseball season, no doubt, will be a successful one. The team is under the direction of Ralph Curtis, a very capable athlete. Several baseball veterans of former vears are again on the team and will be a great help to the team this year. W ' e are quite confident that the baseball team will uphold the good record which the other Elmhurst athletic teams have set so far this year. I t 14 . If! rr I .

Treasurer THE GLEE CLUB made a very fine record for Elmhurst College during the 1928 concert season. A trip as far south as Kentucky in April produced good results and the post-season tour to the Atlantic Coast, covering 3,000 miles, surpassed any heretofore undertaken. Buffalo was so well impressed that the services of the Club were requested for the Reformation Day program on October 27th. On the same trip a program was also given at Rochester, New York. The Elmhurst College Glee Club is the only Glee Club in the world that has a regular contract with a radio station. Every month it sings at station WLS, giving a new program at each appearance. Music critics of the Chicago daily papers praise especially the chorals that are sung and give high comment on the English sea chanties. John C. Minnema, Dean of the School of Music, is conductor of this organ- ization. His wide experience with similar organizations and his masterful direct- ing are largely responsible for the success of the Club. ; Forty members compose the Glee Club. Not all members participate in long tours, since some are retained as substitutes for emergencies. Rehearsals are held daily and sometimes more often when concerts are close at hand. Every member receives one vocal lesson per week. Bozo Oumiroff, internationally known baritone, is the vocal instructor. Though not present at concerts, the work of the master artist is very evident. The brilliant and excellent playing of our accompanist, Waldemar Hille, also soloist, has won much repute. The vocal soloist, Glenn Most, charms the audience with his rich baritone voice. The repertoire of the Glee Club is of a highly classical nature, consisting of both sacred and secular selections such as Latin High Masses, chorals in, English and German, English sea cliantic--. and folk songs. The great part of the ' program is sung a capella. X tour is now being planned to touch some of the leading cities of Wisconsin, guaranteeing the continuation of an active concert season. The post-season tour will probably take the Club west. It promises to be just as inlercsling and event- ful as the one of last year; a fitting close to a busy season. 1 Nilicty-cight The Band .op i i OUR Band this year is not as large in numbers as last year. The Band was j I organized last year under the direction of John Minnema, Dean of the j t- School of Music, with about eighty members. The number of members is considerably less this year, but we are convinced that size does not determine I ] | the ability nor the efficiency of the Band. An " elimination contest " was held to reduce the size and only the most efficient were able to survive. As a result, only ■ ' the most competent and most interested members remained. Only the best grades of music have been studied and included in their various 1 1 | entertainments. Our Band has played the same high grade music which pro- fessional bands have included in their repertoire. c-f- This organization has many duties and many opportunities to show its ability. | | , It has acquitted itself especially well during the football and basketball seasons - ' --- this year. At a number of the games there were other bands present also and ' ' , it was always the determination of our Band to make a " touchdown " as well as ' , the football team. .TH Another feature of band activity is the open-air concerts which are given i on the campus during the spring, on Sunday afternoons or on some beautiful . evening. The Band also assists the city of Elmhurst in making its parades on c- j Memorial Day and on other notable occasions a success. • 1 Nincly-ninc ST ' i I 1 1 ■ 1 i ; t ! ! t ■ , 4 or DEVELOPMENT of ELMHURSr COLEEGE ill 0 5 f r I The Greater Elmhurst The heavily shaded areas iniHcate huildinys now completed; (has onal sliad- ings indicate future huildings, while dotted lines show tlie outlines ot jxissihle future additions to the Uhrary and South Mali.
