Text from Pages 1 - 136 of the 1931 volume:

C he sixtieth The halfback who races down the field with the ball tucked under his arm has but one thought in mind; that is to reach the goal. He does everything in his power to get through. He pivots, sidesteps and straight-arms his way through those who would block his progress because the goal must be reached. Years ago a group of staunch, loyal and persevering individuals set a goal for themselves in the form of an educational institution. They stayed with the task until the goal was reached and today we have the results of that endeavor. May we continue to carry on in the spirit which dominated those individua ls. avniversari ELMS PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF E L M H U R S T C O L L U G E ELMHURST, ILLINOIS H ' S i Foreu ord 7 rOK fiffy-iiiiie years Elmhnrst stood as an C wstitutiou for the development of men of v Christian character. But with the sixtieth $ A year women have been admitted to its halls to help ivrite its history. With this step the spirit f of progress, which has been prevalent for the past decade, became manifest. S C At present a campaign is underway for an endoivment fund to bring to a realization the dreams of those who fostered the progressive spirit in the hope of achieving a greater Elm- . hurst — an Elmhurst that would be able to take a place beside some of the leading educa- tional institutions in the middle west. Hoivever, the Elms Staff of 19U felt that VA some recognition should be given to the events that have gone before — the events which have V laid the foundation for whatever progress is S J attained at present. Therefore we have revived the past in the theme of our book, hoping to arouse within the members of our student body and faculty an ad miration for those who gave their best to make Elmhurst what it is today. the years to come this thirteenth vol ume of the FJms iiill revive fond memories, renew old acquaintances and create new con- facts for our school, we will feel greatly re- warded for our efforts. S — - S Among the most interesting campus fixtures of the old yard; creaking and protesting, the pump, center of many informal meetings, takes its honored place. Reminiscent of an older and leisurely exist- ence, the memory of it finds a parallel in the lamentation of the Academy — • Water dashes and it splashes At the pump — Hard to be academy And just pump For the Seniors in between years At the pump. Quite strong talk sometimes heard At the pump. Little pitchers have big ears — At the pump. DEDICATION Founding an institution in the existent dif- ficult pioneer conditions meant untold sacri- fices. Not only luere numerous sacrifices made but the enterprise called for a tremendous amount of courage and energy to carry on in spite of the obstacles or seeming failure. Because they had the courage, energy and foresight to make a beginning, and because they sail ' the needs of their group in the ivay of educational facilities, lue dedicate the Elms of 193 1 to the founders of Elmhurst College.

Lehmann These historical data have been gathered not only to present them as facts leading up to the founding of Elmhurst College, but largely to enable us to sense the difficulties encountered in bringing about that which we enjoy today. Or shall we say rather: It cost much to found this institution, it cost much to maintain it, it will cost infinitely more to sustain and develop it. To raise it to a level, where it may honorably compete with other colleges of liberal arts places upon the students, the faculty and the adminis- tration of today a responsibility, that can be borne cheerfully only as we contemplate the sacrifices and services of our fathers. They labored not in vain, neither shall we. We foresee the completed program of expansion in an adequate endowment, in an en- larged plant with needed equipment, in an increased faculty and an enthusiastic and loyal student body numbering about five hundred. The Evangelical Synod of North America looks back upon more than ninety years of creditable service having been organized October 1 5, 1840; at Gravois Settlement, Missouri. Originally it was known as the German Evangelical Church Society of the West. In 1848 the first steps were taken towards the establishment of a seminary. In this connection we read an interesting tale of gifts of service, self and substance, to establish this institution. In 1 8 5 5 the General Conference at Burlington, Iowa, resolved to build a small college on the seminary grounds at Marthasville and a college building was dedicated three years later, but was discontinued in 1862. Meanwhile a teacher training school had been founded in a rented building in 1864 in Cincinnati, Ohio, which was tranf erred to Evansville, Indiana, in 1870. Here Rev. F. Kranz began work as the first president. During August, 1871, representatives of the United Evangelical Synod of the North West and the Evangelical Synod of the North West met in Elmhurst to discuss closer cooperation. A small seminary had existed in Waukegan, Illinois, which was in 18 65 transferred to Lake Zurich, but in September, 1869, Mr. Bryan of Elmhurst offered to give ten acres of land near Cottage Hill, DuPage County for this school. The Synod bought twenty additional acres and the seminary was transferred on October 2 5. In 1871 the German United Evangelical Synod of the Northwest gave their Melanchthon Seminary to the Evangelical Synod of the Northwest for common use and on December 6th, 1871, Rev. F. Kranz and fourteen students moved from Evansville to Elmhurst. The first graduates from this institution were J. H. Dinkmeyer and F. Giselman. By resolution the Evangelical Synod of the Northwest turned the seminary at Elmhurst over to the Evangelical Synod of the West which later became the Evangelical Synod of North America. In June 1873 the first new building was dedicated at Elmhurst. 187 5 — Philip Meunch became President. 1877 — Dr. Daniel Irion elected as professor. 1878 — Main Building dedicated (cost $24,712.00). 18 80 — Peter Goebel became president. 1887 — Dr. Daniel Irion was chosen as his successor. 1896 — Dining Hall was dedicated. 1911 — Irion Hall was built. 1919 — Rev. H. J. Schick, S.T.D., became president. 1921 — Memorial Library was built. 1922 — South Hall was erected as dormitory. 1924 — Dr. H. R. Niebuhr succeeded to the presidency. 1928 — In July Rev. T. Lehmann assumed his duties as president. 1928 — Gymnasium completed. Page 20 Daniel Irion, D. D.

Kallmeyer, V. Pres. Edgar Bonven III, Secy-Trecn. 1927 saw sixty Freshmen enter Elmhurst College. 1931 sees 15 Seniors leave their Alma Mater! The class of 1931 boasts of being the first class to leave Elmhurst since the inau- guration of co-education. It is the only class that is strictly stag. It has the honorable distinction of being the graduating class during the sixtieth year of our Alma Mater. As Freshmen, the class took their initiation like men. As Sophomores, the men began to take part in extra-curricular activities and to show their varied talents. They placed members on the Elm Bark staff, in the Glee Club, on athletic aggregations, and in almost all of the organizations on the campus. As Juniors, the class continued to show their many abilities, and also inaugurating a " Class Day. " They held several theatre parties and social functions throughout the year. As Seniors, the class became still smaller in numbers but increased in importance. They contributed to every or- ganization on the campus, having in their midst the president of the Student Union, the president of the Elmhurst Theatre, the editor and associate editor of the Elms of 1931, besides many other officers and members of various staffs. Throughout the four years of existence at Elmhurst, the class of ' 3 1 has been known as a well-organized class. They stood together during their initiation and each member took an active interest in all class activities, and social functions. In their Senior year they became more conspicuous than any other class before them, due to the scarlet class coats. Their float in the Homecoming parade won for them the silver cup. Their social, given during the latter part of the year, was one of the most outstanding events of the school year. The members of the class of thirty-one has taken as its slogan " Service, " and throughout its existence it has upheld this slogan. Various members of the class have chosen the ministry for their profession and will continue to u ' -e and live up to their motto. It has seen the beginning of the " Greater Elmhurst " and as alumni the members have pledged themselves to uphold the honor of our y lma Mater. The sands of Time have decided that we must end our college career. W ' e leave these noble halls and go into various fields of activity, but not without a tear or a sigh of regret. ROBERT J. BALDAUF Maslllon, Ohio A.B. — Sociology Behold the noble class president! Bob has served our class well ever since he entered Elmhurst. He has taken part in all class functions for the past four years and for the last two years has served us in the capacity of leader. Achievements are second nature to Bob. During his four years at Elmhurst he has attained an enviable scholastic record. Besides this he has been very ac- tive on the Elm Bark staff, acting in the capacity of managing editor in successive years. He is a member of the Liberal- I. R. C. and last but not least, he is also the president of the Student Union. For the last two years he has been working in a downtown grocery store and has made himself well-liked by many of the townspeople, who like him also because of his red hair. He is a leader in any group and the party or social function would not be a success without Bob around. RUBEN BIERBAUM Boonville, Indiana A. B. — History Ruben is a student that Indiana may well be proud of. He was always near the top of the list in all his classes. As president of the " Y " he made that or- ganization one of the most active on the campus. He took part in other extra- curricular activities including the Band, Elm Bark and Glee Club. He was always busy with something. His philosophy of life " that everything could be done better " was a goal toward which he aspired. His willingness to work and his active interest in whatever he participated made him stand out as one of the leaders of our class. Musically he is a clarinetist and a sing- er. This year he entered Eden and be- came the business manager of the glee club, also singing in the quartette. Few men could compete with him as an active member of the various organizations and still have time to mix with the fellows socially. We predict a rosy future. Page }0 EDGAR BOWEN III Villa Park, Illinois A.B. English " I ' m all for the boys " is Edgar ' s mot- to. Edgar ' s passion for his radio is a by- word to all South Hall residents. During his four years at Elmhurst, Edgar has been a very busy man. Besides his work in chemistry lab he found time to be football manager, a drummer of no mean ability, and a superb actor. As president of the Masque and Buskin, Edgar was very active in the various pro- ductions of that club. As a student his place on the honor roll is taken for granted each year. Besides his many activities and school- work, Edgar is adept at indoor sports sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. At present he is the ping-pong and chess champion of th; college. Edgar has a very pleasing personality and has won many friends on the cam- pus. Wc feel sure that he will be a suc- cess in anything he may undertake. ELMER BROETZMANN, Wausau, Wisconsin A.B. Sociology " To do one ' s work well and to work for the good of others " is Elmer ' s motto and has been during his four years at Elmhurst. Besides his scholastic work Elmer has found time to do sufficient tasks to pay his xpen ' -es in attaming his education. In his Junior year he was appointed student employment manager. The seri- ousness with which he went into the assignment is brought out in the fact that he changed the system of attaining employment for students. By doing so he insured the students of more jobs and the people who employed them of being more certain of getting some one to work for them. Because he had to earn his own way through school, Elmer understood the needs of the fellows who asked for jobs and his sincere efforts to get tiicm work will serve as a remembrance tdi ' his many friends on the campus. ALFRED BUCHMUELLER, Minonk, Illinois A. B. — Philosophy Four years ago this campus was blessed by a clean shaven quiet and ambitious student. It was Al who instantly de- manded recognition by virtue of his won- derful baritone voice. He joined the Glee Club and has been a member of that organization ever since. One look would suffice to show that Al was not very talkative, but let him sit beside you and put forth some deep philosophical question, and you will be convinced that he has a personality and attitude of life, that nothing can overcome. Al was active in class as well as extra- curricular activities and functions. He is interested in philosophy and music; he is a " Romeo " of no mean ability. He could be serious at times, but it was much eas- ier to take a carefree attitude on life. In his later years on the campus Al has been active in dramatics and has taken active parts in many of the college plays. ALBERT W. BUCK Waterloo, Illinois A.B. — Sociology Albert proved to us to be an excellent student. During the two years at film- hurst he always managed to be the first ranking honor student in our class. Now that he is at Eden he is still right there on top. There are few students who so dili- gently carry on their class work and at the same time take an active part in student activities. He was an active member of the German Club during his Elmhurst career. Then too: we must not forget his splendid work in the Band. That he was an efficient banker is proved by the fact that he was treasurer of four organizations at the same time. The Ori- ental Club and the Liberal-I. R. C. were organizations in which he was active as an organizer, speaker and booster. Wo feel sure that as a future minister Albert will be a credit to the profession. Page !2 CARL GRATHWOHL Billingsville, Missouri A.B. — Sociology We were happy to find that Carl was back with us again this year to finish his studies and take his degree, after being absent from school for some time. Although outwardly quiet and shy, Carl is a man of far deeper knowledge and intellect than appears on the surface. He is always busy. During his four years at Elmhurst, he has been a member of the Y. M. C. A. cabinet- — working as a leader of the religious life committee. He also found time to blend his melodious voice with the others in the Glee Club. He is a student whose name appears fre- quently on the honor roll. Though seri- ous at times, Carl also found time for a bit of enjoyment and entertainment — humor was not unknown to Carl. To him service is not something to be given grudgingly, but willingly and gladly. LLOYD HEGEMAN St. Joseph, Missouri A.B. — Sociology Lloyd, as one of the " St. Joe " prod- ucts, will be remembered for his good humor. Many a class party would have been a dull affair had not Lloyd been present. His witticisms were in part re- sponsible for his popularity and for his cherished presence where real fellowship was desired. After his first year Lloyd proved him- self to be a good student. Sociology was of major interest to him and his knowl- edge of the subject should prove helpful in his future work as a minister. He took advantage of the combmed course and entered Eden in the t.ill of 1 93 0. When a student at I.lnihurst, Lloyd spent a part of his imvj developing the practical sule of his nature, i oi ' ihiee years he was an acii e member cil ilie Masque and Buskin, the C)neni,il C hib and the Liberal-!. R. C. Pusc i J EDWIN KALLMEYER Hermann, Missouri A.B. — Sociology " Chick " is truly a veteran. For eight years he sat beneath the pedagogical fire of the Elmhurst professors. Since he is the only man in our class with four years in both Academy and college, we find it a bit easier to account for the abundance of wit and humor which he has. For two years Chick served as the edi- tor of Knot Holes, thereby making quite a name for himself. For four years he has been very active in our class activi- ties, and during the past year he was the vice-president of the class and the asso- ciate editor of the Elms. His main in- terests at college were Sociology and Philosophy and, some say, there was another attraction off the campus that took quite a bit of his time. Rather a quiet and unassuming young fellow, thinking alone and closing argu- ments with thought — sincere in his Tightness and with never a compromise. ERNEST MILLER Harvard, Nebraska A.B. — History Three years ago Ernie entered Elm- hurst, and for three years his scholarly attainments have manifested themselves quite obviously. In fact, while he was at Elmhurst, he established one of the best scholastic records of recent years. Dur- ing these years, Ernie has participated in a wide field of school activities, and proved himself most dependable. Today, Ernie is one of the most popular men on the campus. Outside of studying and working at the counters in the College Commons, Ernie spent a large amount of his time taking care of his duties at the Public and College Libraries. Ernie has enjoyed this field of work so much that he in- tends to become a librarian and enjoy himself among the masterpieces of the immortals. Page }4 ROBERT NIENKAMP Treloar, Missouri A.B. — History Bob is one of the huskies from Miss- ouri. He is one of our faithful gang who has kept his eye upon the goal for which he entered Elmhurst four years ago. He was a whiz at remembering facts, which accounts for his majoring in History. His ability to work hard and never flinch from a task were factors that fre- quently won for him a place on the honor roll. Aside from his academic duties, he was active as circulation mana- ger of the Elm Bark and as a member of the Band and baseball varsity team. Like " Silent Cal, " he does not say much but — " still waters run deep. " This characteristic, along with his friendly na- ture made him stand out among his fel- lows as the " good-natured Bob. " With such a character, plus his ever willing spirit to work, success will surely be ahead of Bob who anticipates entering the ministry. ERNEST NOLTE Pekin, Illinois A.B. — Sociology Ernie is the pride of the Senior class. He delights in having work to do; and does his work with a spirit of willingness that has won him many important posi- tions on the campus the four years spent at Elmhurst. He was very active as can be seen by the fact that he was a member of the glee club for several years, sports writer for the Elm Bark for three years, Stu- dent Union store manager, associate edi- tor and editor of the Elms which you now see before you. He was an athlete of no mean ability. He played basket ball and baseball on the varsity teams, and has made his letter in these two sports for a number of years. Jolly and free in his associations with others; independent; capable; persevering and willingness to help the other fellow; a good manager aiul business man. Pcisc ) 5 ADIE PETZOLDT Jackson, Missouri A.B. — Sociology Adie is one of the men from Dixie. He will be remembered by chem. stu- dents as the man who handed out ele- ments and compounds to anxious seekers after the mysteries of the test tube. A faithful worker and friend. Serious, yet not adverse to a good time. He is an excellent student and knew the value that lies in good hard work. He spent little time in the pursuit of extra- curricular activities, but was a member of the Band and Oriental Club for sev- eral years. His scholastic activity at Elmhurst was ended last year but he chose to go to Eden under the plan of combined course, and return to Elmhurst in the spring to receive his degree. Now with his goal in sight, we feel sure that he shall make a distinct contribution. OSCAR RUMPF Saxton, Missouri A.B. — Sociology Who would not remember Oscar ' s pleasant smile and ready laugh? All was not fun for him, however, for he was a serious and hard working student. He is one of the members of our class who took his final year ' s work at Eden. Oscar did things whole-heartedly, whether it was in the class room or in extra-curricular activities. Whenever any newspaper work was to be done, he was the man to do it. As editor of the Elm Bark h e achieved great success. Be- sides his efforts in the Band and on the gridiron, he was actively engaged as a member of the Student Council and as the treasurer of our class in his Junior year. His presence was felt rather than heard for he was a quiet, unassuming chap. However, do not let that fool anyone, for when he said anything he meant it.

Edw.ircl Donibrowsky Page 37 Page 3 8 PRESS MARTEN HOHMAN THE CLASS OF 193 2 Ernst Press, Pvcsidcnf Marguerite Eastham, Vice-Presidenf Irene Marten, Secretary Harold Hohman, Treasurer As a class, the Juniors have not been notably active this year, and it is not a mere process of rationahzation to say that it is in part due to the fact that its members have been so actively engaged in other campus organizations, that they have had little time left to devote to their own class. This denotes a spirit of unselfishness, full of service to the school as a whole and has reduced class prejudice to a minimum. In numbers the class is small, only about forty members, but in spite of that it has contributed leaders to every organization on the campus. The " executives in chief " of the Y. M. C. A., the Men ' s Glee Club, Elm Bark, Liberal-I. R. Club, the Oriental Club, German club and the newly formed Prethcological Club, have been recruited from the Junior ranks. It has supplied other executives to the Y. W. C. A., the Student Union, the Elms Staff of 1931, and the Elmhurst College Theater, besides many other minor offices and active participation in all these groups and activities. During the three years of its existence, the Class of 193 2 has excelled in athletics. Among its members are to be found four varsity captains in football, basketball, base- ball and track, and many regulars on versity teams. Two Junior women serve as assis- tants in physical culture. Socially, the class is not to be ignored. The crowning social event of the year was the Junior Prom on May 16th, sponsored by the class for the entire student body. The class has provided athletics, organizers, literary men, musicians, actors and speakers. But just as important is their scholastic record which has been iii.initained at a high level. The Juniors may feel justly proud of their record of being the most active class in the history of Elmhurst. Emil Bassler St. Louis, Missouri " bissler " " Who docs the best his circumstances allow.

WEIGEL BLOOHM FISKE NIELSEN GETSCHOW THE CLASS OF 193 3 Ernest Nielsen, President Ruben Getschow, Vice-President Maxine Fiske, Secretary Leonard Weigel, Treasurer Harold Bloohm, Scrgeanf-at-Arjns The class of 193 3 has been reduced almost one-third from the total that came to Elmhurst as freshmen in the 1929-3 0. Yet, we welcome the addition of a number of new students from other schools and also four fair co-eds. The annual initiation of the freshmen which took place nearly a month after the opening of school was attempted but met with little success. The class of 193 3 was represented in the Homecoming parade by a large float trimmed in the class colors blue and white. On November 22, 193 0, the class sponsored a dance which heretofore had been conspicuous by its absence. It showed the creative spirit of the various members of the class. Incidentally, it was the first function of its kind in the history of Elmhurst College. The dance was given in the Masonic Temple in Elmhurst. The class is also inclined toward athletics, having among its members several prominent grid stars, the captain-elect for 1931, basketball men, plus a collection of track and baseball stars. It has a number of men and women in the various organiza- tions on the campus. Also its members have contributed their share in making the Elmhurst College Theater the successful organization it is today. The class prides itself on the fact that they have started a tradition in the matter of social functions; and they hope that these functions will become more colorful as the years go by.

" — La Rochefoucauld The Freshmen Class of 1930-1931 is a spirited group of young men and women. The freshmen initiation of last fall stands as evidence to the indomitable spirit and loyalty of the class. The Freshman Hop will be remembered as one of the, if not THE social victory of the season. It was a huge success as compared to similar social functions on the campus — since then. Extra-curricular activities at Elmhurst would be found wanting without the support of the loyal freshmen. They have men and women in almost every organization on the campus, particularly the two glee c lubs, baseball team, track team and tennis team. They are a group of fine young people from fine homes. God bless them. Puv 5 J Fage U Pa.Vf 5 6 ACTIVITIES HISTORY OF CAMPUS ORGANIZATIONS In looking back through the development of the existing organizations on our campus we notice that there are comparatively few which are now enjoying a ripe old age. We can say without exaggeration that the Y. M. C. A. is the oldest and the best organized society on the campus at the present time. In 1912 it became incorporated with the National Y. M. C. A. and since that time has contributed much to the s piritual and social life of the College in the form of procuring chapel speakers and the sponsoring of the social activities of the highest order. Next as to point of years we might consider the present Elmhurst College Theater. Although it has masqueraded under different names during the years of its existence, it really claims the prize for having lived the longest on the campus. When we trace its ancestry back as far as possible we discover that it originated as a Young Men ' s Society founded in 1 88 5. In 1894 its name was changed to Schiller Literary Society, which sponsored plays and literary gatherings. In 192 5 this club dissolved and four students, realizing the great need for a literary or dramatic society on the campus, formed the Masque and Buskin. This in turn gave way to the present Elm- hurst College Theater in the fall of 1929, which society sponsors two major plays a year. The Student Union, which should be the most important organization of any collegiate institution, was formerly known as the Student Council, formed in 1919. In 1924 the Council became rather defunct and the need for a unifying body among the students as a group became apparent and the Student Union came into being. When we consider the organization which has done the most toward establishing contacts with the outside world, the Men ' s Glee Club immediately comes into mind. It, too, is one of the older clubs but has not undergone such drastic changes. It was first known as the Orpheus Glee Club; it was completely reorganized in 1922 and since then has been an important factor in making this institution known as the " Greater Elmhurst " . In a consideration of musical societies we can ' t forget the Band, which has always been an active group usually under student direction. In 1927, the Band, under the direction of J. C. Minnema, was reorganized and outfitted with new uniforms. The membership was also increased from 20 to approximately 5 0 members. The year 1927 saw the organization of two very popular clubs — the Oriental Club and the German Club. The Oriental Club is an outgrowth of the Old Mission Society. It is closely allied with the Y. M. C. A. and it was organized mainly for the purpose of acquainting its members with the customs, habits and traditions of the Orient. The German Club was organized as an independent organization and in the interests of the students who desire to speak the German language. It was sponsored and organ- ized under the direction of Profs. Kaufmann and Hansen. At present the club enjoys a privacy, heretofore unknown, in their own club r,ooms in the Old Music House. The Liberal Club and International Relations Club first functioned as two separate organizations but in the year of 193 0 they were combined and called themselves the Liberal-I. R. Club. This club offers its members an opportunity to view their itle.is on modern subjects and social conditions of the world. The coming of co-education brought three new organizations (.luring the past year, the Women ' s Glee Club, the Y. W. C. A. and the Pep Club, which is closeK .illieJ to the Y. W. C. A. and which exists for the pui ' pose of fostering school spiiit in iis most wholesome form. It can truly be said that the co-eds have establislieel pi-eccJciits that will bear watching in the future. Pane 5 9 BALDAUF HOHMAN STUDENT UNION Student government is one of the features of college life at Elmhurst and operates through the Student Union organization. Mass meetings are held whenever student needs and problems arise which demand the attention and discussion of the entire student body. The elected officers, meeting as the Student Union Executive Committee, assemble to decide all the minor questions of the college group. A student government cannot work successfully when the checks placed upon it by the college administration are too great or when there is a lack of cooperation on the part of the student body as a whole. In the past year or two, the Student Union has more and more failed to fulfill the purpose for which it was originally organized, namely, the regulation of student life on the campus in all its phases. The attendance at mass meetings has been poor and there has not been a proper relation between student-faculty groups and individuals. With the creation of a new situation on the Elmhurst campus by the admission of women into the college life, the task of the Student Union became more difficult. Old rules and regulations had to be cast out or modified to meet the new need. It would seem that under such conditions, the Student Union could do much to foster the proper relation between the college men and women. This, however, cannot be done unless the administration places more confidence in the student organization, and permits the Stu- dent Union to regulate for itself, with only minor supervision, the social life of the campus and other phases of student activity. If then, under such a situation, the stu- den group proves itself to be inefficient, the administration should take all powers into its hands. The officers of the Student Union are only too well aware of their obligations. They also realize, however, that without the whole-hearted cooperation of the student body and without additional confidence on the part of the college authorities, the organization may as well cease to exist.

Page 6 1 YOUNG WOMEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OUR AIM We, the members of the Young Women ' s Christian Association of Elmhurst Col- lege, unite in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growmg knowledge of God. The Y. W. C. A. was organized in 1930 for the purpose of fostering wholesome social life on the campus. Early in the year a group of girls interested in the forming of such an organization presente d their idea to the President and Mrs. Lehmann who offered their hearty cooperation in the project a nd who invited Miss Jane Hamilton of the Central Y. W. C. A. to come out and speak to the girls on the organization of a Y.W. C.A. Through the generosity of the Administration the girls were presented with the room under the chapel, formerly known as the " Old Gym. " This room underwent a complete metamorphosis and became known as the Y. W. C. A. Recreation Room. In the course of time officers were elected and Irene Marten was chosen to pilot this youthful organization on its first journey through the school year. She was assisted by Ann Keller as vice-president, Martha Klein as secretary, Helen Fluegge as treasurer, and a cabinet of no mean abihty. Perhaps this group has not as yet been outstanding in the campus activities but we may surely expect great things from the girls next year. Page 62 Toll Row.

YOUNG MEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION ' OUR AIM To direct energy To develop latent ability To cultivate right habits To make Christian character Our student-faculty organization has always tried to be typically a fellowship which functions as the nexus of the personal and social aspects of our campus life. It has sought this end by attempting to keep in contact with current social and religious problems, and by giving self-expression along these lines. For the service side of our four-fold program, the Y. M. C. A. has aided in the " Frosh " reception, cooperated with the Y. W. C. A. in planning the World Educational Institute held on our campus in February, helped finance Geneva delegates, and had representatives at the National Faculty-Student Conference in Detroit. Some inquiry was carried on in connection with local campus problems, several outside speakers were brought in, and our annual retreat was again successfully held. The recreation and reading room, with its added equipment, remained popular throughout the year, and the usual number of seasonal parties and tournaments were held there. The spiritual phase of our activities included a large number of Gospel Team dates, a growing Oriental club, and group cooperation in regular chapel services as well as Lenten Week services. However, we have tried to make our Y. M. C. A. program not merely a list of activities, but a method of dealing with individuals and groups; and effectively bringing to their attention the spiritual values inherent in all their activities. In essence, the Y. M. C. A. sought to raise the quality of life on our campus to a level denoted as " Christian Character. " Page 64 THE ELM BARK The ELM BARK is the official campus pubhcation devoted to the interests of Elm- hurst College. The editorial staff is elected annually by popular vote of the student body. This year the ELM BARK succeeded in many respects in coming up to its slogan, " Published in the Interest of Elmhurst College. " Each week its editorial column was devoted to the betterment and solutions of the campus ills and grievances. In addition to the record of the main functions of all the various clubs on the campus, write-ups of all the sports and the joke column, several new columns were introduced this year. One of these, " The Other Campus, " gave sidelight briefs on the activities on other campuses. Another interesting column was the " Bark Chips. " At the close of the term of the 1930-3 1 staff, each member was awarded a pin. During the year the staff put the paper on a higher journalistic level by conducting classes in journalism. The reporters attended these classes and they were instructed in writing news, features, and sports articles. Besides this, various phases of journalism were touched upon. Through the untiring efforts of the business staff the ELM BARK was a financial success. Much credit for this success goes to the advertising and circulation departments. Page 66 Toj) Row.

Carl Berges Verne Warner George Fuchs Robert Groves William Briese Hazel Winters William Luthe With the inauguration of co-education and the fact that Elmhurst was entering its sixtieth year, the Elms Staflf of 1931 set out to produce a book worthy of the events. Obstacles, of course, were numerous. The general economic depression was the greatest obstruction for the business staff to overcome. Our advertising manager found it difficult to convince business firms that advertising would bring returns in such trying times. The business manager had similar experiences. However the staff was not discouraged. They went into the work with the de- termination to succeed regardless of circumstances and to produce a book which would serve as a reminder of the historical events back of the development of Elmhurst College. For the first time in the history of Elmhurst, women have held positions on the Elms staff. Their suggestions and tireless efforts were of great assistance and we believe the Elms of 1931 is a better book because of their work. Although the staff is entrusted with the task of producing the year book, they do not by any means assemble the book only of their own efforts. Members of the various classes contribute write-ups of their classes and organizations. We appreciate their kind- ness and willingness to cooperate. With 1931 Elmhurst has been in existence for sixty years. A great deal of history has been written during that period of time. Many men have gone through its halls to take their place in the world. The old order of things has passed in many respects and a new order is coming into existence. We, the Elms Staff of 1931, have tried to bring back the memories of those days which are gone, by placing into the atmosphere of the past the life that exists on the campus at present. — 1931 Elms Staff V age 70 Tfij) Raw. ndwin Kallmcycr, Associate Editor; Irene Marten, Liter.iry I ' diior; Howard l iseher, Athletic Editor.

THE ELMHURST COLLEGE THEATER " The only regularly pyodiiciiig f beater group in the city of Ehuhiirst " The Elmhurst College Theater first ventured into the life of the Elmhurst campus and community with the little one-act offering called " The Pot-Boilers " in December of 1929. The students so liked this little offering that the Theater combined with the German department and plunged into the production of a five-act classic comedy of Germany, " Minna von Barnhelm " , which was given in the German language. This second offering drew a German-speaking audience from approximately thirty neighbor- ing towns. The next year ' s premiere was again a one-act play, " Cup o ' Tea " , given during the chapel hour in the gymnasium. Later in the year, January 23, the Theater dared a production of the odd play by Sutton Vane, " Outward Bound " . The company gave a splendid performance before a packed house. At this time the new policy of pro- ducing two major plays a year was ratified by the administration. The Elmhurst Theater had not only won the support of the students and townspeople but also further encour- agement by the college administration. The play, " Dulcy " , by Kaufmann and Connelly, was produced April 24, before a large and appreciative audience and brought the ' 3 0- ' 31 season to a close. Some idea of the rapid progress of the Theater may be had by a glance at a few tangible facts. The total number of people that attended the Theater ' s five shows is approximately two thousand. Furthermore, as the college enrollment is two hundred, we can easily see for ourselves that, of the three plays advertised for the public, two- thirds of the total audience have been townspeople. The Theater began its existence on an absolutely bare stage with no lights. It has now an equipment valued at six hundred fifty dollars. Although the college adminis- tration encouraged the Theater with loans, the Theater paid for all equipment with the proceeds of the plays.

In that year, however, several students, with the aid of Professors Kaufmann and Hansen, organized the club. The purpose of the German Club is to promote the study of the German language, literature and culture, and to foster fellowship among the members of the club. The club is made up of students who have a speaking knowledge of German. The meetings are conducted in the German language. The programs are arranged by the students themselves with the help of Professor Blenk, now head of the German depart- ment of the college. The club meets once a month. The evening program is usually divided into three parts. First there is a discussion on German life or literature led by some invited speaker. Then comes a business meeting. Finally, comes the social part of the evening which in- cludes refreshments, folk songs and toasts. This year the German Club has opened up a club room for its members in the Music Hall. In these club rooms are German periodicals, a radio, and a billiard table. This room was decorated by the club members. The radio, billiard table and other articles of furniture were furnished by friends of the club.

Page 7 5 KUHN TIEMEYER THE ORIENTAL CLUB This organization originated only four years ago as a Mission Study class sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. Since its reception the aims have been extended to include study and observation of Asiatic relig ' ons, hfe, ideas and customs, thus receiving its name — Oriental Club. The foreign sections of Chicago offer convenient samples of this Oriental life around which this group centers its interest. During the past year, the club has maintained rather intimate relations with the Student Volunteer Movement of Chicago. In November, it was the host to the student volunteers when they held their monthly meeting in the chapel. The speaker for that occasion was Matias Cuadra, traveling secretary of the Union, a native Filipino who has charmed thousands all over the country with the story of his life. It was the privilege of the club to be able to present Harold N. Auler, missionary from Honduras, at one of the informal meetings. The club owes much of its success to Prof. Katterjohn who has been their loyal adviser and to Prof. R. Stanger who has also taken an active interest in the club.

He was well recommended and soon made his presence on the campus felt by means of a re- juvenation of athletics at Elmhurst. Ath- letically, he put Elmhurst on the map. It was through his efforts that Elmhurst became a member of the Illinois Inter- collegiate Athletic Conference better known as the " Little Nineteen. " " Mournful Mac " continued the repu- tation that he had while coaching at Wayland. His first year at Elmhurst was characterized by a brilliant football and basektball record and also the introduc- tion of track and field events — a some- what dead activity up to that time here at Elmhurst. The record begun in Mac ' s first year at Elmhurst is still continuing and records are broken only by consistent effort and labor. This is one of Mac ' s many characteristics. He is always alert to all possibilities, and his keen observa- tion of men taking part in intramural meets and physical education classes often leads to some very fine and valuable pros- pects for his varsity teams. Ralph Curtis, Elmhurst ' s most brilliant athlete during the last few years, and one of our most loyal alumni, returned this year to his Alma Mater to take over the job of assistant to Coach F. C. McFar- land. Ralph was assistant coach in foot- ball, head coach in baseball and also taught all the physical education classes. Besides these various duties he also laid out the program and managed all intra- mural activities. Ralph is a capable leader and knows the ways of men. He is a friend to all who know him and his very pleasing per- sonality has endeared all students and alumni to him. His ability to understand and at the same time command the men under him has helped him in putting out some very strong baseball teams and making this year ' s intramural athletics the most interesting and spirited c er seen at Elmhurst. The students in his physical education classes obey his w ord to the let- ter for they respect him and appreciate him. They like him becatisc he takes part in all fun and is not too serious to stop and chat with them at any time on any subject. 1 9 3 0— ATHLETICS— 1931 Due to the unswerving loyalty of Coach F. C. McFarland to the athletic interests of the school, Elmhurst College achieved more in the way of prestige and recognition during the 1930-1931 school year than in any other year in the history of the school. The first full year of Elmhurst ' s membership in the Illinois Intercollegiate Athletic Association was dotted by many evidences of the ability of Mac ' s Pirates to make some of the best teams in the state walk the plank and proved beyond a doubt that our school was justified in joining the Little Nineteen Conference in 1929. An important factor in the success of the Blue and White teams this year was the addition of Ralph Curtis to the coaching staff. Ralph, it will be remembered, was Elmhurst ' s greatest athlete when he wore the Pirate togs in 1927 and 1928. His per- sonality and ability permeated throughout the student body. A direct result of this feeling was a renewed interest in intramural activities on the campus. Besides his duties as assistant coach, Ralph also had charge of the physical education classes and creditably fulfilled the duties of a baseball coach. The Elmhurst pohcy of " athletics for all " was even more evident in its manifesta- tions during the past year than it was a year ago when Professor Ollmann, then assistant coach, introduced intramural competition on the campus. Every student had an oppor- tunity to compete in some sport and nearly all availed themselves of the opportunity. Intense interest was displayed by the weekly games and contests; the attendance to these contests was a thing unheard of in former years. Further interest was revealed by the keenness of the rivalry. Actual competition in intramural games also tended to stimulate greater interest in varsity games and consequently there was increased attendance. The enthusiasm shown by the spectators at varsity and intramural contests was even more spirited than ever before in the history of Elmhurst College. This was due to the inauguration of co-education at Elmhurst. The loyalty displayed by the fair coeds, was -■yery- -encouraging to the teams on the field and helped to win many games in the final minutes of play. Attendance at out of town games has also increased by leaps and bounds and this in no small measure is due to the influence of the Women ' s Pep Club, an organization composed only of women enthusiasts who followed the teams throughout the season, despite such handicaps as distance, inclement weather con- ditions and illness. The success of Elmhurst ' s Pirates during the school year can justly be accredited to the loyalty of the coeds. Nor did the Blue and White teams of 193 0 and 1931 fail to warrant the enthusi- astic and spirited encouragement they received from their loyal supporters. Their schedules were the most difficult in the history of the school; games were scheduled with schools many times the size of Elmhurst. Nevertheless, the Pirates met all their foes with a tenacity that characterized the Buccaneers of old. The Pirates gave all a scrap that was not to be forgotten in a short time and as a result they were victorious in almost all the games. On the gridiron, hardwood floor, cinder track, diamond and clay court it was always one of two stories: " Pirates Win Again " or " Pirates Go Down Fighting in the Fading Moments of Game " . The most outstanding demonstration of student enthusiasm came on the eve of the Fiomecoming game. Bonfires, pajama parades, a Homecoming parade of floats and loyal alumni, and a women ' s football game were only a few of the features of the Home- coming holidays. The team showed their appreciation, in their own humble way, by bowling over the highly-touted Milton College eleven by the overwhelming score of 5 8-0. The most interesting and by far the most bitterly fought game was with Bradley Tech of Peoria. Here again the Pirates displayed that " old Elmhurst Spirit " and refused to be stopped. The game ended with the Pirates victorious and elated over their victory. Over and over again the characteristic " Elmhurst Fight " showed itself in the games and as a result the team equalled or surpassed all expectations. Page S2 FOOTBALL Carl " Cully " Kerber and Alfred " Al " Reed, co-captains of Elmhurst ' s 193 0 Pirates football team, deserve more than a lion ' s share of the credit for whatever success the Pirates achieved, winning games, winning moral victories, or attaining to a high standard of clean sportsmanship. Every minute during which Reed and Kerber were on the field their defensive backing up of the line and their offensive drives were points of comment between rival coaches and grid critics. The fact that they received mention in the all-star team selections of the Illinois Intercollegiate Athletic Association indicates the attention attracted by their playing ability. It is with men like Kerber and Reed that all good football teams are organized.

For two years the Blue and White football teams had but one defeat to mar their season record. This year ' s Pirates had two defeats chalked up against them, but the title of " Elmhurst ' s Greatest " belongs to them on the basis of the splendid way in which they handled their unprecedented diffi- cult schedule. The first game of the season was played under floodlights in Bloomington against Illinois Wesleyan University, a school larger than any Elmhurst had ever met on the gridiron. Bloomington newspapers predicted a 60-0 landslide in Wesleyan ' s favor, but the " Green Wave " was unable to eke out more than a 13-7 victory, and that in the last minutes of play. The Aurora game permitted the boys to rest up for the tough Mountaineers from Mount Morris and at the same time to conduct a little landslide of their own. The game with Mount Morris brought another one touchdown defeat at the hands of a heavier and more experienced team. Once more, however, it was not until the waning moments of the final quarter that the winning touchdown was scored on a series of forward passes. The remainder of the season saw the Pirates victorious no less than five times, their crowning glory coming in the 27-2 5 victory over a dumbfounded and completely bewildered Bradley team. Bradley had looked upon the Elmhurst fracas in the same light as the Bloomingtonites had several weeks previous, and knew not what to make of the rush with which their guests scored two touchdowns in less than as many minutes. The Peoria gridders perked up and gained a 19-14 advantage at half time, but the Pirates matched their third period score and made them walk the plank in the last quarter while they themselves were driving across the winning touchdown. The Elmhurst-St. Viator charity game served as a sort of anti-climax, but at the same time it showed that the Bradley victory was more than a flash-in-the-pan. Round- ing out a season of six victories and two defeats by winning five in a row after a slow start, leads one to believe that the Pirates might have been even more successful if their hard early season games had come two or three weeks later. The prospects for another successful team next year are quite bright for not many will be lost by graduation and the team will be captained by " Rube " Getschow, all- state guard. Kerber and Reed, co-captains of this year ' s squad, were recognized in the all-state selections also, the former being placed at fullback on the second team and the latter receiving honorable mention.

Once again " Cully " was faithful to the trust placed in him by his teammates. The team Kerber led on the floor was not the most successful in Elmhurst ' s history in point of number of games won, but " Cully ' s " indomitable spirit characterized the whole team in defeat as well as in victory. Kerber himself was not a high scorer nor was he particularly outstanding in any department of the cage game, but he was steady, would never say die, and was a good sport. Hence, he was a good captain. Top Raw — Peters; Gutnik; Nolte; McFarland, coach; Groppel; Landmeier, manager; Zielinski. Seated — Pfeil; Roberts; Davis; Kerber; Reed.

The Pirate quintet was pitted against some of the leading teams in the Little Nineteen, including St. Viator, Augustana, North Central and McKendree, all occupying top rungs in the conference standing. Although not always victorious, the Blue and White finished the season with a record of which they need not be ashamed. The boys got off to a good start by winning their three early games before Christmas by good margins. Returning from their vacation they departed on a week end trip to the Mississippi River to meet Augustana an d St. Ambrose on successive eve- nings. They came from behind to beat the highly touted Augustana five in the closing minutes. They were not quite so successful at St. Ambrose and were sent home on the short end of a 25-22 score only after a very determined fight to pull the game out of the fire. Whether or not it was the disheartening influence of the St. Ambrose defeat that caused the team to slump is not known, but slump they did, for the lost their next four starts. They fell before North Central ' s whirlwind sharpshooters twice and lost one to Chicago Normal and one to St. Viator. St. Viator and North Central were among the league leaders, however, so it may be that our Pirates were in competition a little out of their class. But the Pirates ' thirst for revenge manifested itself in the Mt. Morris game which the Buccaneers won handily, 2 5-19. From this stage to the season finale victories and defeats came alternatingly, Valporaiso, Augustana, and Mt. Morris aveng- ing earlier defeats at the hands of McFarland ' s charges; Elmhurst also trounced Milton and Chicago Normal. McKendree, another of the outstanding Little Nineteen teams this season invaded the Pirates ' stronghold to carry off the honors in the last game of the season. There is little doubt that stronger teams have represented Elmhurst College on the hardwood floor, but it cannot be said that there was ever a team that tried harder to win when the odds were against them. Beginning the season with a green and inexperi- enced squad, Coach McFarland steadily developed a formidable quintet of basketeers. Their more than average determination carried them through what may honestly be said to be a successful season.

His outstanding playing ability and his unques- tionable sportsmanlike character led the 193 0 baseball lettermen to choose him to cap- tain this year ' s team. Al ' s unassuming qualities of leadership have won for him the respect and the loyal support, not only of his teammates but the student body as a whole. Page 9 Tol Row.

BASEBALL Seven lettermen and a wealth of promising new material reported to Coach Ralph Curtis for baseball practice this spring. The only positions left unoccupied by Pirate veterans of last year were at shortstop and behind the plate. Walter Pfeil, understudy to Haas in 193 0, appeared to be the most likely candidate for the catching assignment and Bork, a newcomer, showed up well at shortstop in early practices. The rest of the in- field was ably handled by Nolte, Captain Reed, and Zielinski. Smotherman ' s position in the outfield was quite secure but there was keen com- petition for the other garden posts. Elmer Sander, who pitched several heady games last season, was back to share the pitching burden with several newcomers — Behle, Wege- ner, Froehlich and Rezatto. Behle seems the most promising of the four. Even the most conservative followers of Pirate baseball activities early agreed that one would have to page back quite a ways in the Elmhurst athletic history to find a time when diamond prospects were brighter. Prospects for a Northern Illinois Baseball League championship are very encouraging. Tl)c Schedule April 29 — Elmhurst at Mount Morris. May 1 — Elmhurst at Wheaton. May 6 — North Central at Elmhurst.

Vagc 92 TRACK It was not athletic ability alone that prompted his teammates to elect Vernon Landmeier to the track captaincy this spring, for Verne is admired by all who know him for his sterling personality. He has twice demonstrated his qualities for leadership as captain of the cross-country team in 1929 and co-captain in 1930. On the track Verne is the outstanding Pirate two miler, and when the occasion demands he can turn in a reputable race in the mile as well.

TRACK Elmhurst was better represented in invitational and conference track and field meets this spring than ever before. Early in the season the tracksters had already made a good showing in the I. I. A. C. Indoor Meet, the Armour Tech Invitational Indoor Meet and the Central A. A. U. Meet. The strength of this year ' s team, however, lay in the addition to the squad of four outstanding point-getters, rather than to an all around proficiency in all events. Dreu- sicke, Bayer, and Steinboch contributed a wealth of Freshman strength in the broad- jump, high jump, and sprints, respectively. Cash, a Junior who transferred to Elmhurst from Illinois U. in his Sophomore year, scored consistently and heavily in the pole vault and the hurdles. The seven returning lettermen, Ruhl, Landmeier, Blaufuss, Fischer, Smotherman, Roberts and Reed made up the rest of the Pirate squad. The results of the early season and pre-season meets show that Elmhurst scored bet- ter than twenty points in each of their first two big meets and that Cash took second place in the Central A. A. U. pole vault competition. The first dual meet, with Milwau- kee Normal, was lost by the margin of a single event — the relay. The Schedule I. I. A. C. Indoor Meet at Naperville.

Vagc 94 TENNIS Sharvy Umbeck was the only tennis letter man to return to school this year. He earned his letter as a member of the Pirate team that tied for first place honors in the Little Nineteen conference last spring. As captain of this year ' s team, Umbeck bears a huge responsibility, for upon him, more than upon any other individual, falls the burden of maintaining the enviable reputation of Elmhurst ' s tennis teams. Men of Umbeck ' s calibre are worthy of such responsibilities. Page 9 5 Hamalian; Press; Gerfen; Umbeck; Howells; Meyer; Bauer. TENNIS Under the careful and consistent coaching of C. C. Arends, the Elmhurst College tennis team developed from a mediocre team to one worthy of honorable mention and highest praise. Only one man from last year ' s squad returned to play again this season and as a result, Coach Arends had to build up an entirely new team. However, the prospects so far revealed show some very promising material. Thus far there are about eight men out trying hard to make the team and as yet there are no positions clinched. The most promising prospects are Asbed Hamalian and Richard Gerfen both with considerable high school experience. All other members of the team, with the exception of Umbeck, are practically green men, but are willing to do the best they can to keep up the good record Elmhurst has enjoyed in tennis for the last few years.

To them fell the task of recruiting and coaching a green team. They proved themselves equal to the task, however, and at least one letter man, " Bunny " Bayer, was developed and several others give promise of making the grade next fall. By developing a cross country team of merit both Ruhl and Landmeier proved that they possess the qualities that are characteristic of real leadership. Eiben; Bayer; Landmcier; Hendrickson; Ring; Ruhl; Harz; Rodriguez. CROSS-COUNTRY At the opening of the cross country season last fall, only two lettermen, Ruhl and Landmeier, reported. These two shared the responsibility of coaching and acting as cap- tains of the team. From the Freshmen several promising men were recruited the most valuable being Bayer who placed in the upper five consistently during the entire season. Eiben, Harz, Rodriguez and Ring were the other members of the squad. The only meet which the Pirate harriers won was the victory over Lake Forest on the Elmhurst course, in which Ruhl led the field. At Milwaukee Normal in Milwaukee the team braved the cold weather and the icy lake breeze only to lose by a close score. In the triangular Homecoming Day meet with Normal and Loyola universities, Elm- hurst placed second. The last meet of the season proved to be the closest of all. The team travelled to Naperville where they competed with the North Central harriers. The meet was lost by one point. Landmeier and Ruhl tied for first in this race, but North Central won the meet by virtue of taking the next three places. Eiben showed up well in this meet by placing sixth.

HILLE Waldemar B. Hille began the study of piano at a very early age, but received his first intensive training when he entered Elmhurst. While at Elmhurst he studied under Miss Olive Neel of the Cosmopolitan School and under Jan Chiapusso, former head of the Piano Department of the Elmhurst College School of Music. He received his A.B. from Elmhurst College in 1929 and since that time has been alfiiliated with that insti- tution, as secretary to Dean J. C. Minnema, and instructor in piano. When Dean Minnema resigned Mr. Hille was appointed executive secretary of the School of Music. The inauguration of co-education this year brought forth a new organ- ization on the campus — the Women ' s Glee Club. Mr. Hille was appointed to direct this group of singers. To date he has been very successful and several very talented singers have been developed. Waldemar Hille is wel l-known in the community because he has delighted countless audiences with organ and piano recitals, and also because of his ability ' to direct the Women ' s Glee Club. GLENN MOST Glenn Most, a resident of Elmhurst, is well known in the community because of his excellent bass voice which has thrilled many audiences. Mr. Most studied under the late Prof. Bogea Oumiroff, internationally known baritone, and under Charles Norman Granville of the Elmhurst School of Music. He attended the Chicago Conservatory and there studied under such able teachers as J. C. Minnema, Mrs. Hislop, and Victor Saar. Mr. Most is quite capable of his position as voice instructor of the Elmhurst Col- lege Glee Club. He also accompanies the Glee Club on its various tours throughout the country and thrills thousands with his beautiful baritone solos. Page 102 MRS. JAN CHIAPUSSO Mrs. Jan Chiapusso is probably one of the most brilliant pianists before the public to- day. Mrs. Chiapusso specializes in begin- ners ' piano classes under the new Curtis class system. She has studied under such famous artists as Rudolph M. Brethaupt of Stearns Conservatory and Madame Adelle aus der Ohe. PjSC 10) C. G. STANGER Organ ELSE HEEGARD Violin Page 104 ELMHURST COLLEGE BAND President Richard Elliott Vice-Presiilcnt Sharvy Umbeck Secretary and Treasurer Ernest Press Librarian Arthur Ebeling The Elmhurst College Band, under the direction of Mr. C. H. Kickert, was organ- ized in early fall with fewer members than ever before. However, there were a number of skilled musicians around which nucleus the Band was formed. At presen t there are about thirty-five members, among which there is to be found seme very good material. During the past year the Band was kept busy furnishing music for the football and basketball games and various other events in the vicinity. Besides these appearances the Band gave several concerts, namely, in Cicero and in Chicago. On Elmhurst Sunday the big feature of the afternoon is the annual band concert. In the spring, when the spring weather wafts its cooling breezes over the campus, the Band can be heard in weekly concerts on tlic campus. The soloist, Richard Elliott, is a very talented euphonium artist; and is also the president and one of the mainstays of the organization. The club rehearses twice a week and new marches and melodies are taught them. The prospects are very good for next ) ' ear, during which year the Band hopes to reorgan- ize and give even more and better performances than they have in the past. KLEIN TROUT THOMPSON GIRLS ' GLEE CLUB The Girls ' Glee Club, which was the first women ' s organization on the Elmhurst College Campus, was organized on September 28, 1930, by a group of fifteen girls who were interested in music. They elected the following officers: President Mina Trout Business Manager Martha Klein Secretary-Treasurer Evelyn Thompson Librarian Marianne Feddersen The purpose of the Glee Club was to arouse a greater interest in better music. Under the capable direction of Mr. Waldemar Hille, and assistant director, Mr. John L. Rezatto, the glee club has made great progress. The Glee Club made its initial appearance at the Homecoming musicale. Soon after that they gave a short radio program over WLS. On March 22, the organization presented its first full concert at Barrington, Illinois. A week later they presented another full concert in the college chapel for the Vesper Service. They sang for the Lenten chapel services also — alternating with the Men ' s Glee Club. At the end of the year pins were awarded to the members of the club, as a reward for their efforts. Mr. Hille is to be congratulated for his fine work in connection with this organization.

Probably no organization on the campus accomplishes more than the men ' s glee club, in these two fields of endeavor. Through the extensive traveling of the group, Elmhurst is brought before a large number of people, and prospective students become intimately interested in Elmhurst. The organization is not only self-supporting, but also has pledged a substantial amount of money to the Endowment Fund. The fine showing the club has made this season, was due to the persistent efforts of the new director, M r. C. H. Kickert, in presenting the highest type of choral singing. The scientific principles of singing are taught to the members by Professor Charles Norman Granville, President of the Chicago Conservatory, who recently received his doctor ' s degree in music. His latest book is the popular one entitled, " The Voco Study Plan. " John L. Rezatto, the club ' s tenor soloist, and assistant director, is very talented. His contribution to this year ' s successful organization was highly appreciated. Glenn Most, a well trained bass, rejoined the club at the beginning of the second semester. He serves the club very capably as the bass soloist. The organization is very fortunate in having Richard Elliott as euphonium soloist. He is an experienced and talented player. Paul Rasche has worked very diligently as the accompanist of the club. Last, but not least, the tireless business manager, Elmer Sander, is largely responsible for the financial success of the club. The winter tour this year consisted of concerts at Wabash, Indiana; Louisville, Kentucky; Hamilton, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio. The mileage covered was ap- proximately one thousand miles. The itinerary of the spring tour included concerts at Muscatine and Burlington, Iowa; Boonville, Higginsville, Kansas City and Sedalia, Missouri; Nashville, Illinois; Evansville and Huntingburg, Indiana. The post-season trip will in all probability be through the East, lasting about two weeks. Washington, New York, Baltimore, and Philadelphia will be the high spots of this tour. The members receive as a recompense for their services a sweater and a pin. These awards are presented at the annual banquet of the club. Page lOS Top Ron — H. Meier; Bode; Baumrucker; Hoerdt; P.
