GrONEWEG, Vice-President PAUL SCHWEIGERT. Sec ' y.-Treas- The history of the class of 1930 is a very unusual one. Each year that the class of 1930 pursued, its activities upon the campus, members dropped out and new ones joined the class, until in the final year there were but sixteen left, divided equally at Eden and Elmhurst. out of forty-five members who began as Freshmen in the fall of 1926. Not an activity can be found at Elmhurst which has not had. at some time or other during the last four years, one or more representatives of the class of 1 930 in its ranks. Members of the class of 1930 have filled such notable and responsible positions as cap- lain of the football team, captain of the basketball teams of the last two years, editor of the Elm Bark, editor of the Elms, and president of the Student Union. The various organizations on the campus have always had among its officers and in its ranks members of the class of 1 93 0. The class of 1930 has been known all through its lour years ol existence at Elm- hurst as the most sociable group of fellows on the campus. Each year the members put on some striking and unusual social affair. The " Senior Bull Sess.ons " ol 1929- 0 became the talk of the campus. Small but mighty, the class of 1 930 leaves Elmhurst (College wuh the unit|ue dis- tinction of being the last class to graduate before the inauguralum ol co I ' tiucalioii. Page t-u ' cnty-srven ELM S I 9 3 O EDWIN BEIER St. Louis, Mo. A.B. — History is the end of a long, career for " Ed " at Elmhurst. He began as a freshman in the Academy, finished seven consecutive years there, then took his final years work at Eden. During his time at Elmhurst he showed his musical ability both in the Band and in the Glee Club, He always carried the respect of his fellow students, which was demonstrated by the fact that he was president of his class for two years. Ed has gained fame among those who know him for his ability to argue any side of any subject. Mention must also be made of his mechanical skill; for we know that many a dilapidated and antiquated vehicle has been esoterlcally nursed back to life by him. A man with such varied abilities certainly has a bright future. E. BEIER THEODORE BEIER St. Louis. Mo. A.B. — History " Ted " spent much of his time at River Forest, Illinois, as a help to financing his education. Being in- dustrious, he was often found read- ing his books on the way to and from work. In the spare moments which remained for him, he wrote to his girl friend or practiced on his horn. He was little worried by the problem of life; because he was blessed with a carefree spirit. But to those things which he thought of importance, he applied himself diligently. We shall remember Ted as a most practical and matter-of-fact man who in all of his deeds proved the motto, " Things worth doing al all are worth doing well. " He has found happiness in Eden; since St. Louis means to him friends, home, and the completion of the preparation for the ministry. T. BEIER Page twenty-eight THE ELIMS I 9 3 O KARL BUFF Union, 111. B.S. — Chemistry BufF was born with the mechan- ical bent. Experimentation on ra- dios, cars, and all manner of divers mechanisms is his established avoca- tion. Being of German-American descent, to him, life is work. So he pursued the Unknown up and down test-tubes into mystic inscrip- tions. Being American, he is prac- tical, giving commercial value to the urge for activity by re-establish- ing weary Fords and sending them back into life ' s work. As president of the German Club, Buff brought zest and humor into the organization. The I. R. C. has also been under his able super- vision. BufF is a romantic grenadier: in- dependent, a gay companion, free in his associations with men, with- out ostentation in his serious labors. In that jolly frame is a craftsman spirit — time will bring out! K. BUFF K. CUKl ' lS RALPH CURTIS Sauk City, Wis. B.S. — Math, and Sciences Athletics are Ralph ' s prime in- terests. However, he does not neg- lect the class and other campus activities. Ralph joined the class of 1930 in its junior year and be- cause of his pleasant and likeable manner, he quickly became a friend of all the fellows. In football, Ralpii made a name for himself as a quarterback ol no mean ability. In basketball he captained the team of 1028-20 to man) ' a x ' ictory because of liis brainy playing and ixeellenl leader- shl]-).

DeLURYEA AUGUST GROLLMUS Ada, Ohio A.B. — Sociology August is one of the very few of the few seniors who has spent four full years at Elmhurst. But Elm- hurst is much better for it. August was a worker. When the grass grew, it was August who tr ' m- med it; when the snow fell, it was August who led the shoveling crew; and when there were studies to pre- pare, August found time to study and to study hard! " A friend to the friendless " was August. He was willing to offer his bit of advice to anyone in trouble. And those who received advice from him realize its value. For four years August saw the Glee Club improve, and just so did the Glee Club see August improve as a singer. August was one of the charter members of the German Club, and its president in the year 1 930. RUTHERFORD DeLURYEA Vincennes, Indiana A.B. — Sociology Those who knew " Bus " the first year he was with us no doubt had little hope for him. But " Bus " changed, and worked hard, and will get his degree even if he was forced to miss a semester of school. " Bus " has been one of our star basketball players. He was the Business Manager of the 1930 Elms, a member of the Student Union Executive Committee, and also a member of the Y. M. C. A. Cabinet. " Bus " is a serious student; he has not only his studies at heart, but he is also anxious to help car- ry the world ' s burdens. His ener- getic spirit shows great possibilities. We hope he will find the right channel into which he may turn and so be able to make the most of his capabilities. I A. GROLLMUS Page t iirty THE ELIMS I 9 3 O WILLIAM C. GRONEWEG St. Joseph, Mo. A.B. — English " Bill " is a man well fitted for many hard tasks. Besides the un- requiting task of editing an excel- lent annual this year, " Bill " also edited the Elm Bark during his Junior year at Elmhurst. Those activities together with his activities with the Glee Club, Masque and Buskin, and Y. M. C. A. have brought " Bill " to the fore as one of the outstanding members of the class of 1930. That quiet attitude of reserved yet unbounding good will towards all those about him, has set " Bill " high in the hearts of his fellow- students. With his great ambition of furthering his studies, we see a future, perhaps as a professor Oi Literature, that will bring success to " Bill " in the truest sense of the word. W. GRONEWEG 1 ! « ■ J II ■1MA. EDWIN H. HOFFMAN Portland. Oregon B.S. — Biology Although of a quiet nature, his indomitable persistence in his stu- dies and his extra-curricular activi- ties make " Ed " one of the most popular men on the campus. Dur- ing every year ol his college career he held many ol the important offices of the student government. " Ed " was one of the outstand- ing athletes on tl)e c.niipus. Besides being a good basketball ]ilaycr, he is a tennis player ol great abililv. As captain ol the 1928-29 tennis team, he led iheni through a erv successful season. In the scholastic cimipei ii ion. " Ed " stood almost at the lop .md it can easily be said ih.ii he took his college career sei ionslw I le h.is worked hard to pupaie hiiiisell lor a medical cueei ' . and ' . e teel sure that he ill be ,i ledii o ihe pro- lession. Page thirty-one THE ELM S • • • I 9 3 O L. KRAMER LEONARD J. KRAMER Sandusky, Ohio A.B. — Sociology " Doc " , the Hberal and freethink- er of our group, is one of those fel- lows who accepts nothing on authority but must think every- thing through for himself. As president of the Liberal-I. R. C " Doc " was able to give vent to his argumentative instinct. He was a member and, at the same time, business manager of the Glee Club which, because of his business abil- ity, was able to make several very successful tours during the year as well as make enough money to pre- sent the college with a concert grand piano. Kramer is another member of the senior class who finished his undergraduate work in less than the average time. We feel that if " Doc " continues his great show of activity, he will find himself and help make a name for the class with which he graduated. ARTHUR NEWELL Wausau, Wis. A.B. — History " Art " was one of the younger members of the class. His hobby for tinkering in the Biology lab- oratory won for him the distinction of Biology assistant in the years ' 28 and ' 29. He would go far to defend his principles and often would indulge in arguments. His earnestness won for him numerous friends. We re- member as his chief assets, his friendliness and willingness to help others plus the cheerfulness and sincerity with which he faced his work. " Art " was not given to serious- ness all the time, for he loved to " cut up " and found time for pranks and jokes. He also found time to cultivate the acquaintance of that " fair damoisclle ' to whom he faithfully wrote a daily report concerning his collegiate activities while studying at Eden. A. NEWELL Page tliirty-twc THE ELMS • I 9 30 BENNO OTT Chicago, 111. A.B. — History Benno hailed from the city of skyscrapers and heavy traffic. His chief aim at the beginning of each semester was to have his classes so arranged that he could spend the week-end at home with his rela- tives. He had several hobbies, dS most progressive people have: he liked to play chess, to play bridge, and to ride on the train to Chicago on Saturdays. Ott was a charter member of the German Club which was organized in 192 7. During his stay at Elm- hurst he attained the honorable po- sition of president of this organiza- tion, which he helped to develop. With success in college and a reputation of a diligent worker, we can predict his future to be a very successful one when he finishes his seminary work at Eden. B. OTT SIEGFRIED RECHT Cecil, Wis. A.B. — Sociology " Sid " needs no introduction for we all know him as the social leader of our class. Perhaps the prepara- tions for the famous " Sophomore Frolic " can be mainly accredited to his efforts. Besides leading social events for the class, he also carried on a campaign of his own. Ailer much deliberation, we have finally discovered the " key " to his popu larity with ihe fair sex. il all lies in the moustache which he has been so patiently nursing. " Sid " can sing! He not onh sang in the Glee C.lub but ,ilso b.-l 1 his own in the c|iiartel Im ihiee years. His time was so occupied thai his vocal lessons were pi.uliced in the halls and wash rooms at .ill l.ours ol tl e da . Hue to his cap.u- ity to argue Sid has puned himsell an able salesman.

A.B. — Sociology A green freshman came to Elm- hurst four years ago and settled in South Hall. There he became the devoted bell-hop of the contem- porary upperclassmen. When a sophomore, however, he became suddenly ripened, after enduring the Dean ' s wrath for trying to per- suade a poor defenseless freshman to perform these same duties. Such is the early history of Ritter ' s career at Elmhurst. He was always conscientious and willing to undertake responsibilities in various fields of work. His ability was demonstrated by his splendid work as literary editor of the annual, and, by the accomplish- ments of the Oriental Club under his able guidance. Ritter was known by all as a friendly, sincere, and industrious fellow with high ideals and a strong will. CARL SCHRUPP Shepherd, Mont. A.B. — History The students who choose Elm- hurst as their college come from far and near. Carl might have at- tended any one of the larger col- leges or universities of the west, bur he chose Elmhurst because he knew that it had something beneficial to offer him. At Eden he completed his fourth year ' s work. Schrupp always excelled in his studies, never was unprepared, and his grades proved that he was hov- ering near the top ' of the class. Carl always had a smile and a helping hand and a willing heart. He had an abundance of friends. The Glee Club could hardly do without him. His first tenor voice helped carry that organization to success. Anyone who knows him can clearly see that there is nothing awaiting such a practical man but Page thirty-jour THE ELMS I 9 3 O CHARLES SCHWANTES Lancaster, Wis. A.B. — History College was no easy matter for Schwantes. He " taxied " his way through school: but was not hin- dered from successfully carrying out his school curriculum. As cab driver, he learned the need for serv- ice. Service has been his choice for his life ' s work, as a minister. Although he was busy with studies, he took time to further the school spirit, and thus distinguished himself on the gridiron. " Chub " was one of those stu- dents who could not be penetrated in a short time, but those of us who really learned to know him found in him depths, of friendliness, sin- cerity, and loyalty. He will be re- membered because of his earnest de- sire for the practical solution of all problems. Even though " Chub " finished his courses at Eden he still holds those memories of Elmhurst precious and dear. C. SCHWANTES I 1 ' . .s( ii vF,i(;i;i r PAUL SCHWEIGERT Hebron. N. D. A.B. — English To look at Paul, one would think he were the quietest fellow on the campus. But let him sit be- side you sometime and put forth a c|uestion about some of life ' s deep- est problems. It is only then that a person gets the briefest glimpse of one of those deeji. philosophic.il na- tures that the ordinary person can- not begin to appreciate. Last year Paul w.is iTresuleni ol the I.

BaldaUF, President Ernest Nolte, Vice-President Harry SCHAIRBAUM, Sergeant-at-Arms Leonard J. Kramer, Secretary Oscar J. Rumpf, Treasurer In the fall of 1927 there came to Elmhurst College a group of 60 young men full of hope and courage. They wore their " green " caps with pride and accepted their ini- tiation like men. In fact, they can rightfully boast of being the last class which had the grit and backbone to receive the penalties of initiation as the burly upper-class-men saw fit to impose. As Sophomores, the class was represented in all of the extra-curricular activities. Men for the Elm Bark staflt including the Managing Editor, several members of the Elms staff, the most important of which was the Business Manager, were all sophomores. The outstanding social event of the year was the never-to-be-forgotten stag held in an old wooden schoolhouse one wintry night in February. The year 1929-30 was the most interesting one for the class of ' 3 1. The litsi social function was the celebration of " Class Day " . Every member wore striped suspend- ers, wing collar, and red tie. Tables were reserved in the Dining Hall for the three meals. Perhaps the most enjoyable event of the year was the theatre party held immed- iately after the first semseter exams. Twenty-one fellows altendetl the Illinois I he.Ure where they spent an evening full of fun and laughter. This year the " Jolly Juniors " contributed lo every organization on the campus. It can be proud of its leaders, for it furnished the president of the Y. M. C. A.; presi- dent of the Masque and Buskin: editor of the Elm Bark, and many other officers and members of staffs.

Despite the fact that the days of genuine mitiation were over, the sophomores did their bit to mipnnt m the minds of the new yearlings the true Elmhurst ideas and ideals. Class rushes substituted by an intcrclass debate, interclass basketball and other contests. The beginning of the sophomore year meant the beginning ol more difikuU courses in the class rooms, and even there the members of the class of ' 32 did not lorget that it was their duty to prepare themselves thoroughly for the more important activities ot later life.

Sander, Vice-President Herbert DexhelmER, Secretary Edwin WINNECKE, Sergeant-at-Arms ALVARO P. RODRIGUEZ, Treasurer Last fall, when Elmhurst was resuming activity for its fifty-eighth year, sixty-three men came on our campus for the first time. They came from every direction: each with the purpose of enriching his life by joining in mutual experience with other men who came with similar intent. Not many hours had passed before friendships began to form which now, as we view them in retrospect, are the most inspirational and vital experiences of our lives. We had been living together for about three days when another group appeared on the campus. They were already acquainted with the traditions and manners which surround life here at Elmhurst, and therefore, they cordially proceed to do all in their power to make us feel at home. The faculty too, seemed to be anxious to start us off in the right direction and soon manifested their intention in pursuing a plan of their own. Our friends the Sophomores had chosen methods of making us feel welcome, but because of our stubbornness and lack of the cowed and subjugated spirit supposedly characteristic of Freshmen, the Sophomores altered their greeting which nevertheless re- mained cordial. Since the first week Freshmen have been taking an increasingly prominent part in all activities of campus life. From athletics and Student Union to organizations and dramatics, the men of the class of ' have done their part. On some occassions ihey have gone even farther and showed themselves superior to the esteemed u|iper cl.issnu ' n in certain activities both physical and intellectual.

Page fi ty-six THE ELMIS • 19 30 The President ' s Message Concerning Activities The school is as much a part of life as it is evident that life is a school. Not only in formal courses is there education. Every experience leads into a larger recognition of the responsibilities of life, fits the student or observer the better to meet the emergencies in life. Our training for life actually constitutes life. As I face an examination I am reminded of a variety of tests, to which I am bound to be subjected out of school even more than in school. As I discover a new truth while pondering over an apparently dry statement of facts in a text book I have become a bit wiser and broader. Now in order that students in college may not go forth with a distorted view of life the college itself offers many actual situations, calling for decision and determination, demanding clarity and alertness. In the Co-op Store the manager may learn how to conduct a store; the manager of the Glee Club finds many opportunities to deal with various types of people; the business manager of the ELMS learns to adjust his psychol- ogy as he goes along. The Dramatic Club or the Oriental Club, or any other club for that matter, is an experiment in social life and in some one particular aspect of life, af- fording opportunity to practice, even though quite apart from the vocational inclina- tion of the student. This adds a charm, and serves as an incentive to participate in ex- tra-curricular activities, since it affords ways and means to acquire voluntarily what the school room offers more or less compulsorily. So long as the student takes into account the various sides of life, not confirming himself to, or unduly emphasizing, any one side, which always carries with it the danger of becoming one-sided, these activities may be- come real sources of strength, developing character and ability. The physical side is developed by the athletic program. The mental side by debat- • ing, dramatics, etc. The social side by clubs devoted to this purpose, and the religious equally by such as recognize that abundant life is a fully developed, rounded out, whole- some life, in which the spiritual values are considered no less important than any other values. „ We heartily encourage these activities provided they do not interfere with the academic program, and provided they offer expression for valuable interests in life. We learn to live by living, and Elmhurst College would gladly foster the better along the way to attain the best. TIMOTHY LEHMANN President, Elmhurst College Page fijty-nine THE ELMS • • • I 9 3 O In a democracy knowledge and appreciation of both the privileges and obligations of citizenship are imperative Through the Student Union opportunity is given the whole student body to manage its own campus affairs and activities. The Stucient Union, through its elected student ofiicers. serves as a mediator between the College Ad- ministration and the Undergraduate body. Self-government in affairs of student concern is extended into every phase of campus life. On questions of importance, be they proposed changes in the Dining Hall, dormi- tory rules, or personal irritations in the campus associations, the whole student body is called together to discuss and designate the action to be taken. These mass meetings are held regularly once a month, giving opportunity to every student for expression of possible suggestions or criticisms. The numerous minor difficulties which arise are settled by direct action of the Student Union Executive Committee. All other campus organizations are grouped under the Student Union, and sub- sidiary to it, though every society has absolute right in the pursuit of its own particular affairs. Through the Student Union, the Activities of the independent clubs — Glee Club, Y. M. C. A., Oriental Club, Liberal-I. R. C, Elm Bark, Elms, German Club — are orientated to the whole student body, thus avoiding brittle cliques and groups. After the election, major offices in the Student Union become tasteless jobs: in a democracy the chosen representatives pay for their high offtices. HOFFMAN Pres. FRIEDRICHSEN Sec ' y-Treas.

Oscar Rumpf, Editor The Elm Baric To put out a paper which was " Published in the Interest of Elmhurst College " was the claim of this years Elm Bark staff. The staff achieved its aim, by presenting to the students and faculty every Wednesday, the prominent occurrences on the campus, and, by endeavoring to make the paper the principle instrument of presenting to inter- ested friends and alumni a weekly glimpse of " Greater Elmhurst " . The editorial staff of 1929-30 introduced some new features. Aside from the regular news of general interest, humor section, and section devoted to current literature and drama, two new columns of popular interest were added. A column appropriatel - termed " Elm Twigs " presented each week, observations of campus life and activity. A further addition was the column headed " The Inquiring Reporter " . Each week the inquiring reporter asked various members of the college, a question of student interest, and reported the student replies. This column was not only interesting but also quite profitable in gaining student opinion on campus problems. The business staff was most successful in making the publication a financial success. The balance sheets indicate that the staff not only assumed its own financial burden, but it also alleviated a debt incurred by previous staffs. This admirable task was accom- plished through the untiring efforts of the advertising and circulation departments. Like wine, the Elm Bark grows better with the years. The Elm Bark represents lots of work, deliberation and energy, but if the hopes of the staff become realities, the results merit it. Page sixty-four THE ELM S • • • I 9 3 O I ' liRr sixly-five The 1930 Elms Staff Year after year, the question is raised, " Shall we have an Annual " It is not an idle interrogation, for well do the students know the intricate complications and detailed mechanisms required to produce a successful year book. Publishing an annual is a thrilling steeplechase in which the staff has a long hazard- ous couise to run. It is beset by .streams of contracts, barriers of plans, and walls of ma- terials. But the greatest leap of all is the financial hazard which makes many hesitate before they start the course. But, since the students realized the value of an annual as an unperishable reminder of cherished events, they entrusted this ta,?k to us, and we started the race with unquench- able enthusiasm. We were encouraged by the realization that we represent the sum total of the faith and trust expounded by the school group for the production of this publication. The race has now been run. The staff has successfully overcome the barriers, rivers, and walls, and, thanks to the efficiency of the advertising and circulation departments, we crossed the financial hazard and arrived at the finish in a sound and satisfied condition. We wish at this time to acknowledge the assistance given to us by various members of the student body and faculty. Also for the suggestions, photos, articles, and financial assistance we have received from individuals and organizations. We deem it a privilege to have undertaken this task of publication for the students of Elmhurst College. — the 1930 Elms Staff.

The Libeval ' lntevnational Relations Club Dedicated to a program of liberalism and a study of mechanism of international relations, the Liberal-International Relations Club is an innovation on the Elmhurst campus. After such preliminary features as the amalgamating of the old I. R. C. constitution with the wider ideals of the newly proposed Liberal Club, the election of officers, and the making out of a list of prospective speakers, the fundamental work of the organ- ization came under way. Speakers with varied viewpoints and ideals were brought to speak before the club. The various phases of liberalism and its implications in rel,g,on. politics, history, and social relations were duly emphasized. Authorities on Socialism, Communism, Atheism, and other " radical " topics were heard and appreciated. Contacts were made with the Socialist Club of Elmhurst and with like organiza- tions from the University of Chicago. Many members of the club also received addi- tional information concerning recent developments in the social field due to their in- dividual affiliations with the League for Industrial Democracy. The iuture of this organization is assured. The men who will carry on the work in the years to come will realize greater results for it will be their privilege to nurture the future liberals and internationally-minded men who will work for a higher social system.

(Resigned in January) The Masque and Buskin Dramatic Club With the opening of school in September 1924, the Masque and Buskin Dramatic Club was organized. The motive was to present plays, and to encourage the study of dramatics. It has been the policy of the organization since then to give one or more major plays during each school year. The proceeds from these presentations have been used in the development of other campus activities from time to time. During the past two years it has been the aim of the club to be a major help in the student contributions to the Gymnasium Fund. Due to financial difficulties and conflicting programs, the Masque and Buskin Club was unable to carry out a full program during the past year. Nevertheless, a one-act play, " The Pot Boilers " , was presented in October during one of the Wednesday morn- ing assembly periods. This play was under the direction of Prof. C. C. Arends, head of the Public Speaking department. Miss Marion Stringer, Mrs. Loyal Ollmann, Messrs. Gus Pahl, A. Buchmueller, Milton Kemnitz, and Edgar Bowen were members of the cast. Instead of the usual spring play, the club joined forces with the German Club and Speech Department in the presentation of Lessing ' s " Minna von Barnhelm " given in German in the College Gymnasium on May 3. Prof. Arends directed the cast and Prof. Blenk coached the lines. The aim of the presentation was to enable the German people of metropolitan Chicago to enjoy an entertainment in their own language.

The German Club up to 1 92 7 there was no organization on the campus to bring the German speak- ing students together. However, in that year a few students set out to organize such a group. This club is greatly indebted to Prof. Kaufmann, former head of the German department, and Prof. Hansen, for their assistance in helping to organize the club. The purpose of the German Club is to promote the study of German language, literature, and culture; and to foster fellowship among the members. The club is made up of only those students who have a speaking knowledge of German. Every member is expected to take an active part in the meetings and for that reason the students, under the direction of Prof. Blenk, head of the German department, conduct the meetings themselves. The club meets once each month. The evening program includes a business ses- sion, literary discussion, and a social hour. The literary program consists of topics on German literature, art. and culture together with discuss. ons on present political and economic conditions in Germany. The social hour includes refreshments, folk songs, and toasts. The German Club does not limit its activities to the campus alone. German plays are given in the original German for the people on the outside, thereby stimulating an interest in the German language.

The Oriental Club is sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. as one of its activities. It was organized in the lall of 1927 and, since that time, the club has enlarged its scope to become better ac- quainted with the Orient, its religious life, ideas, and customs. This year the Club has made several trips to Chicago to visit the Chinatown, the Ghetto, and other foreign districts. In this way it was possible to get a glimpse at the actual living conditions of the people of the Orient, which proved very helpful. Meetings are held every two weeks. At these meetings some topics pertaining to Missions are discussed. In December Missionary Dr. A. Albrecht gave an interesting talk on the customs and living conditions in India.

Kramer, Business Mgr. William C. Groneweg, Vice-Pres. Gus Gruenewald, SecretacyTreasurer The Elmhurst College Glee Club has as its objective, the singing of good music in an extraordinary manner for the benefit of Elmhurst College. To begin the season 1 929-30, there were but fifteen seasoned men back. Fifteen new men had to be quickly trained. This was done and very soon the club was ready to appear in concert. The first tour of the year was completed early in December 1929. This tour in- cluded St. Louis. Mo.. Rock Island, Hi., and Burlington. Iowa. After the first semester the early Spring tour was taken into Western Michigan. An Easter tour through cen- tral Ohio was made during the Easter holidays. This year ' s post-season tour is tenta- tively planned for Wisconsin, Minnesota. Nebraska and Iowa. More than two dozen local concerts were given throughout the school year, in addition to the several regular radio dates with W. L. S. In the middle of December, the Glee Club lost one of its best friends and teachers. Professor Bogea Oumirofi . It is with deepest regret that the Glee Club singers recall his learning and guidance. Dean Minnema was very fortunate in securing Prof. C. N. Granville to succeed Prof. Oumiroff. In the short time that Professor Granville has been at Elmhurst, the singers have learned that he is a man with a deep scientific understand- ing of voice culture. Pins and new sweaters were awarded at the first annual banquet held at the LaCasa Tea Room on April 14. This group of mirth-making collegians owes whatever success it has attained to Dean J. C. Minnema. He practiced with the club week after week, and. because of his untiring efforts, efi ' cctivc A cappela singing was the result. To the club ' s excellent accompanist. Waldemar Hille. and exceptionally talented soloist and president, Glenn Most, go a portion of the laurels. The most noteworthy achievement of the year, however, is the result of Business Manager Kramer ' s efforts: a Mason and Hamlin concert grand piano which was given to Elmhurst College by the Glee Club of 1929-30 at the dedicatory exercises held in connection with our " annual gym concert " on February 12th.

The Elmhurst College Band, under the direction of John C. Minnema, Dean of the School of Music, was organized in the early fall with somewhat fewer members than heretofore. However, only seasoned musicians were admitted to the organization which undoubtedly has done much to raise the quality of its music this year. The Band is probably the most useful organization on the campus playing for all the football, basketball, and baseball games. The members of the Band accompanied the football team to Whitewater, Wheaton, and Valparaiso where they played an im- portant part m helping to win the games. A number of concerts were presented during the school year of 1 929-30 by the Band. Several concerts were presented in the gymnasium and, during the month of May, Sunday afternoon concerts were presented on the college campus. In comparison with other bands with which the Elmhurst College Band has come in contact during the year, it was found that the Elmhurst College band has always proved itself to be far superior in appearance and in actual musical ability. The outlook for next year ' s band is very good, for with the present band as j, nucleus, a fine band is sure to develop.

Each year brings a busy season of local and out-of-town concerts greeted by capac- ity audiences. Numerous programs have also been given over the most popular radio station, such af W. M. A. Q. and W. G. N. Elmer Douglas, radio critic, and other critics of renown, have written many words of praise in honor of this organization. The object of these concerts is not only for the sake of producing " bettor music " , but primarily as a stimulus for the students ' interest, pleasure, and progress in the study of music. In addition to this, receipts of these concerts provide for an increase in their scholarship fund and also for educational purposes, such as occasional visits to the Opera and Symphony concerts in Chicago. Thus, it is not all hard work and no play. Miss Heegard, who is the instructor of these players, is ofloring a special course to college students in or der to make it possible lor more members of the college to tako part in and benefit by this ensemble. Page cighly-sevcn Page eighty-eight ELMS I 9 3 O V McFARLAND OLLMAXX The Coaches Coach Fred McFarland, although he is known to most fellows as " Mournful Mac " , is not as mournful as he is con- cerned about the success of his teams. He is always on the alert for possibilities for his varsity teams and, through his keen observation of the man taking part in intramural contests and also of his phys- ical education classes, he often finds pros- pects who later are developed into valu able men. McFarland came to Elmhurst two years ago with an excellent record made at Wayland Academy, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. He upheld this record last year when he produced football and bas- ketball teams which gave Elmhurst a new stand in Inter-collegiate athletics. Although the record sheet of this year does not show such a brilliant basketball season as last year, the football record made by the Pirates last fall is the best in Elmhurst ' s history. Loyal Ollmann, professor of physics and mathematics, is also assistant coach. He is a graduate of Ripon College and holds a Master ' s degree from the Univer- sity of Wisconsin. Before coming to Elmhurst he was professor of physics at Wentworth Military Academy at Lexing- ton, Missouri, and came here highly recommended by that school. Professor Ollmann is very much inter- ested in athletics, and shows unusual ability m all sports. He took charge of Elmhurst ' s first cross country team and brought them through a liard season with surprising success. After cross country was over he chart- ed out a complete schedule of iniiaiiuiral contests in which every studeni has a chance to take part. Page ninrty-one THE ELM S • • • I 9 3 O 1929-Athletics-1930 The school year of 1 929-30 was not " just another year " at Elmhurst as far as the athletic program was concerned. While the inter-collegiate season was none too glorious in basketball, it was still far from being a " washout " . Beginning with the football season, which closed in a blaze of glory, and going on through the basketball season until the opening of spring sport, all athletics demonstrated the true Elmhurst spirit. Of general local college interest the most important innovation in the athletic pro- gram was the " athletics for all " campaign conducted by Assitant Coach Ollmann, who organized and directed the first intramural season in the school ' s history. Confests were held in football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and track, as well as the staging of minor contests in subdivisions of the main sports. Besides the extensive intramural program, one new minor inter-collegiate sport was added to the athletic curriculum: cross country. The first Elmhurst cross country team went through a season of six meets with four victories, losing two meets to Wheaton, runner-up in the conference meet. While the newly organized harriers were introducing the sport into the college life, the football team was rising to heights heretofore unknown. Opening with what was considered a great dearth of material, Coach McFarland ' s Pirates went through the season with only one defeat and eight victories, and in doing so it faced the toughest opposition in the school ' s history. With most of the men back from last year ' s squad, prospects for another good season are bright, but the schedule will be still tougher than that of 1929. Basketball came along almost immediately after the last flavor of football had dis- appeared. Opening the season against the powerful Duquesne University quintet of Pitts- burgh, the Pirates went on through a season of alternate victories and defeats, finally closing the season by winning its last two games. What appeared to be an early spring stimulated interest in baseball, track, and ten- nis long before the cage season had officially closed. An indoor meet, with outdoor practicing was held in Chicago during the first week of March. Heavy snow later in the month held up work in the spring sports for nearly two weeks-, so that little practice was squeezed in before the opening track meet or baseball game. The outstanding event in the college ' s athletic history this year was the entrance of Elmhurst into the Little Nineteen conference officially known as the Illinois Inter- collegiate Athletic Association. While this meant the drawing up of harder schedules for all of the teams, it gives the Elmhurst athletic department considerably more prestige than it could otherwise gam. regardless of its number of victories. Another high school track meet was sponsored by the local college athletic author- ities, this time an invitation meet called the " Elmhurst Interscholastics " . In the spring of 1929 a successful Du Page County meet was sponsored, but the spring of 1930 saw something better in the Interscholastics where athletes from Illinois. Indiana, and Wis- consin matched strides with each other. This is believed to be the first of what promises to become an annual event at Elmhurst. Graduations this spring should mean practically nothing to Elmhurst ' s athletic hopes for 1 930-3 1 as members of all of the squads are underclassmen with one or two exceptions. Should all of this year ' s men return next fall. Elmhurst will have its great- est year in all history in every branch of athletics.

Kerber played a hard and consistent game at fullback duiing 1 928 and was chosen as captain at the end of the season because of his all-round playing and hi:-, abil ty to lead under fire. " Cully " was kept out of the game during the first part of the 1929 season because of an operation. He was seen in action for the first time against Wheaion and ihe one- .sided score of that game indicates how the members of the Pirale team responded io their captain ' s words, " Beat Wheaton " .

Living up to their name to the letter, the Pirates fought with the viciousness and shrewdness of these old time marauders. Many times they were outweighed but they overcame the weight handicap with a swift versatile attack that needed more than weight to stop it. Last fall, a week before the opening of school, men from last year ' s team and also many new prospects were at work in preparation for the hardest schedule ever made for an Elmhurst team. The blow which came when news was received of Captain Kerber ' s illness seemed less severe when a number of fres.hmcn wiib high school experience ap- peared in the first practice session. The season opened in Wisconsin with a 2 to 0 ' lctory over Whitewater Normal in a hard fought game played in a drizzling rain. Crane College of Chicago came here (o mcei ibe Piraics on Home-coming Day. In this game Elmhurst football enthusiasts saw .lohnsioii lead the offensive with two forty yard runs for ihe only two louchdowns of the game.

Hoffman played his old position at forward again this year and although he was not the leading scorer throughout the season, he played his good game of basketball of former years and brought his team through the tight places with h:s cool-headed leadership.

The first game of the season had to be scheduled early in order to take advantage of an opportunity to meet Duquesne University of Pittsburgh. Duque.sne ' si quintet passed through here on its return from a victory over Iowa, stopping just long enough to play their scheduled game. The men from Duquesne outclassed the Pirates and defeated them in what proved to be a good game of early season basketball. The next game was also a defeat for the Blue and White at the liands of Beloit ' s flashy outfit. This game was closer than the first and in it the men showed hetiei basketball form which they developed still further during the next week to defeat Mt. Morris. One of the outstanding features of the basketball season this year was a trip dou n state as far as St. Louis, Missouri. Three games were played during tliis trip. The first of this series was with Valparaiso, which the Pirates lost by two points. The next night they met Mc Kendree. the leader of the little nineteen conference. ,ind were again defeated. In the game with Shurtleff. runner up in the conference, the Pir.ues pl.ived their best ball of the season, playing on a par with Shiutlefl, ios 111; in the l.isi in in utes of play by but two points. A little brightness was added to the none too brilliant season when the Pirates finished their schedule with victories over Valparaiso anti CJiicago reJi.

He counted up his large number of points by consistently winning first in both the mile and the half-mile. Last fall as a member of the cross country team, he again showed h.s abiliiy as a long distance runner by finishing near the front in e ' ery race. As captain of the 1930 track team Ruhl has gone about his track more serious ly than before. In the first meet of the season he beat his best record of 1920.

Considering the fact that the men were forced to do their train- ing out of doors in rough weather, they showed up favorably. Late snow made it impossible to do any work during the next two weeks so the team entered the first meet with very little practice. The first meet of the season was with Chicago Normal and was an easy victory for the Pirates, Clean sweeps in the distance events were largely responsible for the victory over the small team sent out from the Chicago school. A triangular meet with North Central and De Kalb gave Elmhurst a defeat as well as a victory for while North Central easily won first place the Blue and White runners beat out De Kalb for second place. Without a doubt the greatest event in track at Elmhurst was the Interscholastic Track Meet held here April 26th. Athletes from all the leading high schools in this ter- ritory competed for track and field honors. With preliminary events in the morning and finals in the afternoon, Elmhurst devoted the entire day to track.

He is a consis- tent hitter and a reliable man in the outfield where he is an outstanding figure because of his powerful arm. It was Smotherman ' s reliability that found the favor among his teammates of 1 929 which resulted in his election to the captaincy for 19 30. Lots of fight and a keen interest in the game, together with his ability to play good ball should put Smotherman in the front ranks in the Pirates ' baseball history. Page one hiindnil three THE ELM S • • I 9 3 C Basehall Team Ralph Curtis has his baseball material hard at work with confidence of producing a winning team even though he has but four letter-men to use as a nucleus in building his nine. Last year plans had been made to eliminate baseball but the sport was taken up late in the season by an interested group under Curtis ' leadership. This year it was a recognized branch of the athletic program at the beginning of the year and baseball men began early training for a place on the team. More men have reported for practice than had been expected and from all appear- ances the letter-men will have to be on their toes in order to win back their old positions. Competition always makes for efficiency, a factor which will make Elmhurst ' s nine this spring a stronger team than it has been in previous years.

Although he was a freshman, the other members of tlic team saw in him possibil- ities of being a capable leader as well as a good runner. He was not an experienced man at cross country running, but with the help of his high school Hack irainin.;. he de- veloped mto an excellent distance runner. After a season ' s experience as leader of the cross country team, l.andmeier will be a valuable man on the track team in the spring. Page.

Cross Country Team Cross country was new at Elmhurst in the fall of 1 929 but when Assistant Coach Ollmann made the fact known that a distance team was to be organized he did not have long to wait for material. Elmhurst ' s first cross country team, under Assistant Coach Ollmann, had a very successful season, losing only to Wheaton. The team was made up of men with some track experience but men who had never done any long distance work. Although the veteran Wheaton team defeated the Pirates in their two encounters during the 1929 season, next year, with the help of experience gained through the past season ' s work, should find our harriers on even terms with Wheaton. Ruhl led the field in the first meet which Elmhurst won from North Central Col- lege at Naperville. Wheaton won the triangular meet here the following week but Elmhurst was also a victor, beating out De Kalb. Captain Landmeier was the first Pirate runner to finish in this meet. Wheaton also won the next meet which was held on their course. Ruhl spoiled the victors ' hopes of making a clean sweep by placing third. Kregel ' s fourth place was the outstanding feature of the victory over Lake Forest. This was the closest meet of the season and the final result was doubtful until King tied for seventh place assuring a Blue and White victory. The last meet of the season proved to be the easiest. The team made the trip to " Valparaiso with the football team and followed their example of a one-sided victory. The entire team tied for first place to win with a perfect score. Herman Kregel was elected captain of the 1 930 cross country team.

Hoffman has been a leader m several fields and under him the tennis team is bound for a successful season. Page our hundred seven THE ELM S • • • I 9 3 O L ' mbt ' Lk, Hansen, . Iu;l, LoaLli Ari ' i.d . Hutiivan. Tennis In spite of the fact that only one letter-man is back to work on the tennis team, prospects for the 1930 season look very favorable. Several men with high school ex- perience and two others, who worked out with the team last year, but. who did not play on the team because of their inexperience, arc on deck to fill the places left vacant by graduation. Professor Arends is working hard at his post of tennis coach, putting his men through regular scheduled workouts. Because of unfavorable weather conditions prac- tice was held in the gymnasium during the early part of the season. Arends knows tennis and more than that, he has the ability to put things over. A new team under a new coach appears to have a new record in tennis in store for Elmhurst. Page oiic hundred eight THE ELM S • • • I 9 3 O Page oni ' hiinilrnl nine.
