The 1932 Elms Staff William H. Ruhl, Editor-in-Chief Hazel Winters, Business Manager Carl E. Berges, Advertising Manager Paul Rasche, Circulation Manager Gordon B. Strong, Faculty Advisor Page Two Foreword IN the publication of this annual, its editors have instituted several changes which they hope will meet with the approval of its readers. The first of these is the absence of a so-called ' ' theme " and a formal dedication, which features, although giv- ing coherence and unity to a year book if well-handled, too often make for distortion of material to fit a pattern, and destroy individuality. The second innovation is the insertion of two pictorial sec- tions, one of campus scenes, and the other of Elmhurst city scenes. Aside from their photographic beauty, they give accurate pictures of the college campus and the city ' s business district. The editors feel that these changes have helped in the achievement of their goal— the publication of an annual that gives a true picture of the college and its progress in as simple and straightforward a manner as possible. Page Three Dedication 0 all future editorial staffs, to all college students, and to all who have been unwary enough to open the covers of this book, this dedication is inscribed. Since we believe that dedications as applied to such non-creative compilations as annuals count for very little, that they are usually so much hol- low flattery, giving the impression of setting up as little gods people who are entitled simply to decent respect and admiration, and finally, since we feel that nobody reads them anyhow, it is our earnest hope that this one may serve as a " Dedication to end all Dedications. " The Staff. I ' age Four Contents Views Faculty Classes Activities Athletics School of Music Advertisements Page Five Professor Henry Katterjohn October 24, 1861 — November 4, 1931 " We know for such as you, death cannot be Less than the victory that sets men free. " These closing lines of a sonnet dedicated to Henry Katterjohn by Karl M. Chworowsky, accentuate all that crowds in upon us in view of the fact that our dear Professor, friend, and leader is no longer among us. Our consolation lies in the assurance that even death is a victory. What impress he left upon the minds of his students, colleagues, neigh- bors and friends, we might summarize in the expression — he was a friend to all. With no thought of self, he was at all times available for those that sought his counsel and in that counsel there was always manifest a humanly Christian quality which cannot easily be forgotten. As some of his former students have discovered in the school of life just how much his inspiration meant to them, so those who have just re- cently been deprived of that intimate fellowship with him will learn, in perspective, to appreciate him more as time heals the wounds and compen- states for the loss sustained. T. Lehmann, President. Page Six Reuhen Qetschow November 3, 1907 — October 4, 1931 The passing of our Football Captain of 1931 will always be identified with the most deeply significant experiences of our educational career. Whether as president of the Student Union or in the capacity of one among the group, Reuben Getschow always seemed to intimate, in word or action, that he was willing to learn. We truly learn to live, and when we have learned to live, we die as those who have made a contribution to life. Self-evidently we do not wish to imply that it is necessary for a student to die in order to demonstrate his loyalty to his school and his undaunted spirit toward other issues of life. But this we would say; that when a young man, popular, beloved, promising, dies as " Rube " did, we cannot but be challenged by the spirit that thus finds expression. We want to live even as he did. Then he serves, even though he is no longer among us. The suddenness and sadness of it continue to raise questions. The answers supplied may never satisfy. Still, our life is richer because he Hved, and our faith is enchanced by tender memories. T. Lehmann, President.

Mrs. Elizabeth Voigt Matron The Old Tower Clock A great old clock in the tower stood, And struck out the hours as best it could. On cold mornings so crisp and clear, Its glad sounds brought to students cheer. With golden hands and a gilded face. The sixty golden minutes each hour were traced. On mornings when fog and mist prevailed. Its gladdened notes were more tranquilled. This great old clock in its cheerful way. Gave many a man the time o ' day. With its great sand bags and flaxen ropes. Its mighty wheels and mighty strokes. Made its sounds be heard o ' infinite space. Like a guardian saint the night did trace. Praises be to this old clock great W ith its pealing notes and its face so quaint. Always high in the tower of " Old Main ' ' may it stand. The mighty monarch of time, so stately and grand. By a Student. Page Twenty-two The Senior Class The Senior Class of this year is especially blessed (we hope) by being the first graduating class to have co-eds comprise part of its membership. There are only three of them, but one was elevated to a class office. It was this class, last year, which gave the first prom in the history of Elmhurst College. Due to the spirit and " push " of the class, this affair was highly successful, and set a new tradition for the school. Since the class as a whole is outstanding, it is natural that it should have some outstanding individuals. It claims the president of the Student Union, The Captains of the football, basketball, and cross-country teams, and other men and women who are prominent in c ampus activities. The Seniors claim one more distinction. They have the largest class to be graduated since Elmhurst has been made a liberal arts college. They well represent the spirit of progress and advancement typical of Elmhurst College, and they have set a standard which all future Seniors may, with profit, strive to attain. Page Twenty-three Theophil Blaufuss, A.B., English Burlington, Iowa Bluefoot, as he is known among his many friends, has carried on the high traditions set by his brothers here. His one weakness is Iowa, though he maintains she lives in Germany. Bluefoot has a brawny arm, and he used it to great advantage in thiowing the javelin. Just ask him anything on Philosophy and he can out-logic Aristotle. And above all, he is the only man in the class to major in English. The only time Bluefoot ever failed a pal was the time he allowed his roommate to get married. Alfred Braun, A.B., Economics Elmhurst, Illinois Al, the best natured man on the campus! No one ever saw him as anything but the suave man-about-town. Al ' s specialties were Chem. courses with long labs. He did his part for our old Alma Mater by being- track and football manager. Al was a strong Deutsche Vereiner, too. He will be missed when he leaves Elmhurst. Here ' s to vou Al, wherever you go, whatever you do. ' Mildred Clapp, A.B., Education Villa Park, Illinois Even on rainy days " Milly " wore a smile. She came to Elmhurst from Kendall Col- lege of Physical Education and during the year 1930-1931 was co-director of the Women ' s Athletic Department here. Mil- dred played a very large part in organiz- ing the W. A. A. of which she was the first president. Between athletic interests and other enjoyments, Mildred cultivated an ap- preciation for Sociology. Although Mildred only spent two years at Elmhurst she earned many ever-faithful friends. She was an ideal chum among the boys as well as the girls. Her frank boy- ish attitude and her warm friendliness will always win friendship. Otis Davis, A.B., Economics Urbana, 111. " Oak the Mighty " is his name. When you see him in a football outfit you will agree that he looks and is mighty. He can get through the line and when he gets out into life he will do just as well getting through that line as he did the football line. As President of the Student Union we all agree he did his best in executing his duties. At times he would get quite philosoph- ical and then you could hear some words of wisdom. He studies, too, and was al- ways working to get his work in on time. " We ' re for you, Oak! " Arthur Ebeling, A.B., History Romeo, Michigan " Art " is one of those boys that likes to play football and listen to the radio. As a student you should see him get after the History and do it up in a big way. It has been said that he should have been named after his home town, but that is up to you to decide. Herr Von is always ready to help out in an argument and it has been said that he could argue until he dropped and then keep it up some more. With his sheep- skin we can hope for him to do something that will make us know that it is still Arthur. He can and we predict that he will. Edward Fresen, A.B., History Edwardsville, Illinois " Ed. " is better known to the boys on the first floor as the human alarm clock. When would they ever get up if it were not for his coming around in the morning and doing his best to get the sleeping boys out of bed in time for breakfast? He too can always be heard for he can yell as loud as any two. If you want to know some date in history just ask Ed and he can tell you without even stopping to think. Everyone likes Ed and we predict that he will always be around when needed, ready to give a helping hand. George Fuchs, A.B., Sociology Zanesville, Ohio If you didn ' t know Fuchs something was wrong. You either saw him in the candy store or heard him coming. Fuchs was always called on when some managing had to be done. He was on the Elms Staff for three years, a stage mana- ger for our dramatic productions for three yeai ' S and a store manager for two years. He was a good student, who did his work with a will. He is bound to succeed if he keeps up the old " fighting spirit. " Robert Groves, A.B., Sociology Cannelton, Indiana Groves is a Hoosier, and is proud of it. He claims as his greatest achievement in college his position in the Band. Here, he says, he could make all the noise he wanted to without restraint. Bob worked his way through school, but although he was kept busy with work and studies, he found time to make many fast friends. Sincerity and cheerfulness are qualities that will make him remembered by his school-mates, and will insure him great success in whatever he undertakes. Harold Hohman, A.B., Sociology Nashville, Illinois Some people find it necessary loudly to acclaim, their own virtues to make them- selves known, and others quietly and unas- sumingly exert a favorable influence on everyone with whom they come into contact. Hohman was one of the latter. To meet him once, was to be his friend; to be with him, was to enjoy his company. Serious by nature, Hohman could never- theless have just as much fun as the other fellow. He was a conscientious student and yet found time to perform his duties as a member of the Band, Oriental Club and Elm Bark staff. He is now continuing his studies at Eden Seminary, and it is safe to say that the ministry will benefit by his entrance into the field. Ann Keller, A.B., Education Elmhurst, Illinois " Life is to be enjoyed, " Ann always seemed to say. The practical side of Biblical Literature was Ann ' s most interesting study. There was one extra-curricular activity which Ann was very fond of and that was the study of life. She studied people, their characters and always gave a " lift " to the handicapped. Among her many athletic talents, Ann played basketball exceptionally well. She was one of the leaders in campus ac- tivities, and could always be depended upon. We ' re justly proud of our Ann. " For she ' s a jolly good fellow " is the song we sing for her. Carl Kerber, A.B., Economics Elgin, Illinois " Kerb ' s " chief interest is athletics. Since his freshman year he has taken an active part in inter-collegiate athletics. He cap- tained the football team of 1929 and was co- captain of the 1930 team. He was also cap- tain of the basketball team in 1930-31 sea- son. All of " Kerb ' s " time was not devoted to athletics, however. " Kerb " has proven him- self a good student too. His major interest (outside of Elgin) was Economics. He al- ways found time for a bit of fun — his quiet humor was always well liked by those who knew him. Herbert E. Kuhn, A. B., Sociology Stonyhill, Missouri " Kuhn " has won for himself the title " chef -in-chief. " At Elmhurst and Eden his hobby and pleasure were in the service of the kitchen or dining hall. But Kuhn finds his way into the hearts of men, not through their stomachs, but by word and deed. His personal interest in, and his willingness to help others, coupled with a sincerity that is rare, have won for him a high place in the opinion of those who know him. All these qualities aided him immeasura- bly in his Elmhurst activities. As president of the Oriental Club, he was one of the most enthusiastic leaders. No less valuable was he in his work with the Y. M. C. A. cabinet and in the German club. William Luthe, A.B., Sociology Peotone, Illinois Four years ago a clean shaven, quiet but ambitious freshman came to this campus. Today he is a senior who answers to the name of " Bill. " He is still quiet but behind that look of unconcern hides a sincere pur- pose. In spite of the fact that Bill was the right-hand man of Paul Wichmann for years he probably will be remembered as the Don Juan of the Senior Class. If there was to be any fun Bill could be found aiound. We feel sure that the future of this young man will be a rosy one. Wilbur Peters, A.B., Economics Beaver Dam, Wisconsin " Pete " is one of the husky products of that town of Wisconsin towns, Beaver Dam. His main interest while at college has been athletics. He has taken a part in football, basketball, and baseball contests for the col- lege. In all of these sports he has been a game scrapper. " Pete " always had some time left for his studies. His main interest was economics. Socially, Pete was not behind his classmates either. He took part in all the activities of his class. His friends are many, his enemies few. Success in life will be but a fitting climax to his college career. Eugene Pfile, B.S., Chemistry Freeport, Illinois If you want to see " Doc, " go either to the Chem. lab. or to his room and there you will find him, working or studying. As for his being a student — just look at the head of the Honor ' Roll and there you ' ll find Gene ' s name. Quietness and reserve are his cardinal virtues. Once you get to know him you will always like him. Gene has learned that certain chemicals when mixed together will result in an explosion. In the future, Gene ' s shingle will be the guiding star for all the sick. Ernst Press, A.B., History St. Louis, Missouri " No extra dessert, " said Ernie, acting in his official capacity of checker in the Com- mons. Ernie is musically inclined, and often wraps himself inside his Sousaphone and burps out deep, bass notes, or elicits sad, sweet strains fiom his melancholic " fiddle. " Ernie is also an actor of proven ability, as anyone who witnessed his performance in " Alt Heidelberg " will admit. In addition to acting in the play, he translated it into English. Bridge is his favorite indoor sport, and he and his roommate claim the South Hall third floor championship. Eunice Reese, A.B., Education Barrington, Illinois Eunice was a member of the first class of co-eds to enter Elmhurst College, and will be one of the first girls to graduate here. A quiet, studious girl with a very friendly smile, Eunice has found a real place in our class. Eunice was co-director in the Women ' s Athletic Department in 1930-1931. As a student she always found a place on the Honor Roll. Eunice could always be found ready to do her share in school functions and do it well. Friendly and witty, she has found many friends for which she will al- ways be remembered on our campus. Alfred Reed, A.B., Economics Shawano, Wisconsin. When " Al " and Ralph got their heads to- gether we knew that another real athletic . team was coming to the top. " Al " was as- sistant coach this year. " Al " was an athlete we were all proud to know. Football, basketball, track, and base- ball found him to be a star. As ' 31 captain of our football and baseball teams he gave the opposing teams a real fight and usually came out on top. Al ' s smile made him a friend of everybody but behind the smile one could see a quiet determination. A real athlete and a good student, " Al " has found success we feel assured will follow him throughout his life. William H. Ruiil, A.B., Sociology Plymouth, Nebraska " Bill " certainly put Nebraska on the map for Elmhurst College. Conscientious, and a hard worker, " Bill " has been successful in his college career. When Bill arrived at Elmhurst our coach soon saw a real track star in him. By his Senior year he had developed into a distance lunner of no mean ability. He not only was an athlete of some repute but he was also prominent in other extra-curricular activities. This year Bill is editor of our Elms. From a reporter in the Elm Bark he climbed to the height of managing editor. He was popular among the fellows. " Keep going, Bill, we know you will be successful in your work. " Harry Schairbaum, A.B., Sociology Bellevue, Kentucky " Size is no indication of power, " and this is no more true than in this young man ' s case. If you want things done and done right, put " Sherry " on the job. His work at the Student Union Store has proven that he is a born salesman. " Sherry " has found time to do many things besides studying. He has acted as manager for a number of athletic teams. He has taken a part in his class activities, he has served on the Elms staff and on the Y. M. C. A. and has held many other posi- tions. William Smotherman, A.B., Economics Elmhurst, Illinois It is seldom that a person of Smutty ' s quality and ability is found. He was easily the " biggest " man for his size on the foot- ball team. It was a pleasure to see him do his stuff. In football, track and base- ball, he excelled. He is a real student too, with a rare gift for math. Why, he could even teach the " stuff " as he ably demon- strated. In this game of life, we know that Bill will " go in and win " no matter what the odds. He is a true gentleman and genuine scholar. We ' re with you. Bill! Theodore Tiemeyer, A.B., Sociology Cincinnati, Ohio T. N. T., just as his initials might imply, had the ability to start things moving. His literary talents were outstanding and as a result he was elected literary editor of the Elms in his Sophomore year and editor of the Elm Bark in his Junior year. The suc- cess and excellence of these two publications were in no little part due to his natural ability. His campus activity did not stop with those two positions, however. He was a member of the Glee Club, Band, Masque and Buskin, Oriental Club and the Y. Cabi- net, all of which contributed toward making him one of the outstanding men in his class. Occasionally he turned to a certain member of the weaker sex for any necessary inspira- tion. Edwin Wahl, A.B., History Berger, Missouri Endowed with a romantic tenor voice, Ed became the pride of the glee clubs both at Elmhurst and at Eden. His songs and his smile won for him wide reputation and many acquaintances throughout the east and middle west. Quiet and conscientious, he bent to his tasks with an unquenchable determination and came through in triumph. His peculiar but admirable philosophy of life permitted him to find a genuine happiness in living without compromising his high ethical standards. Always ready for service, Ed could be re- lied upon as a willing friend to all. When- ever troubles put in their appearance, they quickly faded under the radiance of his dimpled smile. Page Thirty-one I I ' age Thirty-two The Junior Class Hugo Bauer, Elmer Sander, Mina Trout, Harold Bloohm Vice-president President Sec ' ij-Treas. Sergeant-at-Arms The class of ' 33 holds the unique distinction of being the last class to be admitted to Elmhurst before the inauguration of co-education. How well do we remember our advent upon the campus,— a class composed of strictly masculine individuals. Consequently, we have seen Elmhurst as a men ' s college and as a coeducational institution. Ask us which we like better ! During our three years of college life we have contributed more than our share of the officers and leaders to every organization on the campus. The most outstanding of these are the Glee Club, Y. M. C. A., Elm Bark staff, German Club, Student Union staff, and the athletic teams. Probably the most outstanding event of the season was the Junior Prom which was held in the college gymnasium. The success of the Prom and winning first prize in the Homecoming float parade has proven the ability of the Junior group to carry things through to the finish. We have welcomed the addition of several transfer students into our ranks. It is our sincere hope that next year we may see our entire class back to write their last chapter of Elmhurst history. It is therefore without any qualms that the Seniors can hand over the gavel, and all it stands for, to the Junior Class. Page Thirty-thi ' ee Elmer F.

Somer, Secretary The sophomores have not particularly distinguished themselves this year in the matter of a " class function. " In view of the well-known de- pression, and since the college social calendar all year was pretty well filled, the class did not hold the customary party or dance. True to sophomore tradition, however, its members feel a perhaps justifiable pride in their own identity ; perhaps we have made our presence on the campus felt with- out such means. Certainly we are the up and coming class of the college — ever since our advent in 1930 ! Just look at our co-eds — where would the Y. W. and the W. A. A. be today, were it not for the girls of 1934? Where, too, would be the football team, the baseball team — well, all of the teams, to say nothing of the rest of the extra-curricular bodies, were it not for the mighty and gifted sophomore men? All this is undoubtedly quite vainglorious and bombastic, but, after all, why not? We are a good class, in all phases of college life, and we ' re proud of it. Next year we hope to give the finest Prom in Elmhurst his- tory, and in 1934 we hope to leave Elmhurst with a real record behind us. Page Thirty-nine LuLA Ahmann Marthasville, Missouri Y.

President Vice-president Elmhurst ' s youngest class, although not quite as large as some of its predecessors, has made vital and lasting contributions to its Alma Mater. Many of its members have attained prominence in various extra-curricular activities, and the group, as a whole, has shown a very high scholastic average. An unusually large number of freshmen have consistently made the honor roll this year. The class numbers many of Elmhurst ' s athletic stars in its roll. Although the freshmen did not hold a class function this year, they have " blended in " exceptionally well with the rest of the student body. Very few members were forced to leave school during the year, and, it is hoped that all of them will return as sophomores next fall.

Page Fifty-two ACTIVITIES Extra-Curricular Activities at Elmhurst College Both by tradition and sentiment, Elmhurst College, through admin- istration, faculty, alumni, and student body, has encouraged a wide variety of activities propelled by student initiative, and not formally connected with the academic life of the campus. However, it would seem that such activities need no such encouragement, since they arise and continue out of themselves with ever-increasing multiplicity, and with benefits and virtues all their own. Thus, it may be seen in these pages how every category and color of student-organization is representative of the essential genius of our college social life. There is probably some occasion to boast about the very kaleidoscopic spread of these pursuits. Upon the one hand, we offer for your scrutiny, philosophical clubs, religious fraternities, scientific and literary societies, with their extensive meaning and productivity ; and upon the other hand, we solicit your attention for the broad development of the purely social and esthetic organizations, not to mention the athletic and musical groups which are pictured in this book. Here is food for thought. Outside of the fact of the apparent interde- pendence between the academic and the non-academic routine of the campus, there is here presented evidence of the spontaneous fruition of student responsibility, originality, and awareness of those general social benefits, through intellectual and sympathetic competition, which accrue to that much abused word. Culture. Students become alert to escape or outgrow the trammels of anything which savors of the limited, defeated, selfish, antisocial, or provincial, in the interesting and important business of living. By means of these extra-curricular activities, they fully expect and bid fairly to secure for themselves, the insatiable joy and power of significant living, able production, courage and modesty, now and later, which the greatest of all English dramatists so unforgetably drew in the character of Prince " Hal, " in his Henry IV. These are the qualities which are paramount — character and health — qualities which we hope you can read both in and between the lines here set down for your perusal, and in the faces here pictured, without a too difficult analysis. It is our hope, again, that your pleasure and repeated reference to these pages will be exactly equated to, or impressed by, these facts. Page Fifty-three The Student Union Otis Davis, President Marianne Feddersen, Vice-president of Women MlNAj KOUT, Secretary-Treasurer The Student Union has been exceptionally active during the past year in assisting and cooperating with the administration and the student body, with the result that the college has become a closer-knit, compact unit, working toward one aim — Elmhurst ' s progress and well-being. The death of Reuben Getschow, the union ' s president, early in the year, was a severe shock to everyone connected with the college, but out of sorrow came greater understanding and sympathy between individuals and between functionary groups. The 1.931 Homecoming celebration was probably the most successful in Elmhurst ' s history. Under the Union auspices, all events were run off smoothly, and a large number of students and alumni will testify that Homecoming was a big success. During the year the Student Union revised its constitution, which had become, under several points, cumbersome and inefficient in our growing institution. Another project conducted by the Union was the campaign to collect funds to aid the stricken coal miners of the Kentucky strike area. A com- mittee was organized, and the campus canvassed, with very beneficial re- sults. Other concerns, situations typical to a body of its kind, were handled by the Union in such a way as to demonstrate fully that a Student Board in a small college can be made to mean much in the sum total of a college ' s activities.

Page Fifty-five Young Men ' s Christian Association Walter Pfeil, President Walter David, Vice-president Theodore Van Dyck, Secretary Richard Gerfen, Treasurer Prof. R. Stanger, FacuUij Advisor To a casual observer, the Y. M. C. A. of Elmhurst College may seem to have as its only tangible project the maintainance of the Reading and Recreational Room in the basement of the Old Main. In reality, the " Y " has concerned itself with at least five major projects during 1931- ' 32, namely: the " Y " Room, Deputation Work, the Christian World Education Institute held last February, the publication of a Handbook, and the plan- ning and conducting of a Frosh Week program. It has been the policy of the Elmhurst College Y. M. C. A. to sponsor any activity for which there is felt a need. Accordingly, the position of Chairman of the Forum Committee was created in order to respond to requests for discussion groups. In addition to planning discussion groups, the Chairman of the Forum Committee directed a series of Student-Faculty Get-togethers, held on Sunday afternoons at the homes of certain pro- fessors. The purpose of these meetings can best be expressed in the words of Dean Robert C. Stanger, our faculty advisor: " We want to make it tradition that students may feel free to visit informally at the homes of the professors on specified Sunday afternoons. " Through activities like the Student-Faculty Get-togethers and the C. W. E. I., cooperation between students and members of the faculty, the keynote of the Elmhurst " Y, " has been achieved in an almost unimaginably high degree. This spirit of cooperation, plus the spelling of success as W-O-R-K, has aided materially in the completion of the Y. M. C. A. projects during 1931- ' 32.

Page Fifty-seven The Young Women s Christian Association Ann Keller, President Helen Fluegge, Vice-president Marion Stringer, Secretary-Treasurer Miss Erna Steck, Faculty Advisor Our Aim We, the members of the Young Women ' s Christian Association of Elm- hurst College, unite in the desire to reahze full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. The Young Women ' s Christian Association has been very successful in its interest, in its program, its religious and social life and in its social service. Every woman student has taken part in the work. The consti- tution of 1930 was revised and adopted, a cabinet was formed and all the members were assigned to committees. An attractive booklet stating the purpose of the organization, the semester program and the names of the officers and patronesses was issued. A very fine initiation service was held in October, fourteen freshmen being initiated. The meetings throughout this year have emphasized devotional ser- vice, and programs of music, literature, and educational and vocational guidance have been offered. Members of the faculty and other speakers have assisted. Social work has been stressed, material aid, consisting of food and clothing being given to needy families and scrapbooks made for the children ' s division of the Cook County Hospital. The Y. W. C. A. not only offered the various opportunities for spiritual growth and self-expression, but in a much more concrete form served the local campus. A cordial spirit of friendliness was created. The members, have conducted chapel services and cooperated with other organizations in sponsoring conferences and institutes upon the campus. A fine interest in the national organization was evidenced by the sending of a delegate, Jessie Chapman, to the National Convention which met in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Page Fifty-nine The Elm Bark Elmer Ansley, Editor Sharvy Umbeck, Managing Editor William Melberg, Business Manager Martha Klein, Associate Editor The Elm Bark, the official campus publication, is published weekly in the interest of Elmhurst College and its students by student representa- tives. Since the adoption of the new Student Union constitution the three executive positions are filled by appointment made by the Student Union executive committee instead of by popular student vote. The remainder of the staff is chosen by the editor-in-chief. The position of associate edi- tor was newly created this year and found to be a valuable addition. The duty of this officer is to assist the managing editor. During Home-Coming week a special five-column issue was published and about four thousand copies were sent out to the alumni of Elmhurst College. The five column paper proved so popular that the staff decided to continue publishing it, a thing never before attempted by any other Bark staff. The larger paper was issued until the end of the first semester when due to unforeseen reasons it became necessary to again adopt the four column size. The new 1932-33 staff hopes, however, to be able to publish the large size again next fall. Shortly before the close of the first semester Editor Ansley resigned from the staff because of his heavy academic program. Managing Editor Sharvy Umbeck was appointed to fill his place. At the end of the term of the 1931-32 staff a banquet was held at the Mohawk Country Club for all the members. The Elm Bark key was awarded at this time to eighteen staff members. Most people have the idea that the editorial staff is responsible for the success of the paper. This is true to some extent but it is the business staff who makes it possible for a paper to exist. Much credit for the 1931- 32 Bark is due to William Melberg, business manager, and to Carl Berges, advertising manager. Inspite of the fact that this has been a difficult year as regards finances they were able to make possible not only the usual sized paper but also seven issues of the large paper.

At the very start, however, the staff met with many com- plications. First there was a small deficit to consider. In addition to this handicap, the staff, especially the advertising and circulation departments, had to face the current economic depression. With these handicaps to face, the staff had to somewhat modify its enthusiastic, " A Bigger and Better " ELMS, and set for its goal the editing of an ELMS equal to or on a par with any annuals edited by previous staffs. How well it has suc- ceeded is for the reader to judge. In dealing with the dedication and theme, the staff decided to dispense with conventional types. Thus it will be found that the dedication is not written in the conventional bombastic or flamboyant style; but in as simple a vein as the subject matter would permit. Neither is there any definite correlation between the dedication and the art work. In the latter a mod- ernistic theme has been affected. A new feature has been introduced in the 1932 ELMS. This innova- tion is a closing section consisting of six views of the City of Elmhurst. The reader will agree with the staff that the beauty and pictorial quality of most of these scenes are hard to duplicate. They are the pride of the staff! It is a well known fact that the success of any staff rests ultimately upon its financial resources, and these resources are in turn produced largely by the advertising and circulation departments. Special commen- dation goes to the advertising department, which, in spite of the well- known depression, sold more advertisements than the quota of the business staff called for. In conclusion, the 1932 ELMS Staff wishes to express its sincere grati- tude and appreciation for the hearty cooperation manifested by the entire student body. Without this cooperation the success of the 1932 ELMS would have been doubtful. —The 1932 ELMS Staff.

Arends, Director The Elmhurst Colelge Theatre presented two major productions this year. The first, Old Heidelberg, played in the German language, took place on February 3 and 4, playing both nights to good houses. The cast was well chosen and capable, and delivered their lines in the true Teutonic spirit. C. C. Arends, the director, was in charge, and Prof. Gustave Blenk was line coach. Some excellent scenic and lighting effects were produced by George Fuchs, the Theatre ' s veteran stage manager. In direction, act- ing, and setting, the play was lauded as one of the finest the Theatre has produced. Prominent in the cast were Hugo Bauer, as Karl Heinz, Martha Klein as Kathie, Paul Meyer as Dr. Jiittner, and Ernst Press as Lutz. On May 6 " To the Ladies, " a Kaufman-Connelly comedy, was pre- sented. This gay farce was e nthusiastically received by a large crowd. In the cast were Paul Meyer, Elinor Strand, Ernest Press, Marian Stringer, Charles Paape, and Theodore Van Dyck. The theatre is now a definite and established factor in college affairs. Under the guiding hand of Mr. Arends it has developed into a full-fledged dramatic organization, with good acting material, up-to-date equipment, and capable assistance. Page Sixty-four The Women s Athletic Association Mildred Clapp, President Eunice Reese, Vice-president Alice Stone, Business Manager Lucille Bunch, Hiking Master SOLVEiG Christensen, Sec.-Treas. Miss Marion Smith, Faculty Advisor It is the purpose of the Women ' s Athletic Association of Elmhurst College to develop in the girls an interest in athletic sports and hiking, s and to instill in them a spirit of true sportsmanship. The Women ' s Athletic Association was organized this year. Every woman student was eligible for membership. The inter-class games in hockey and basket ball and the tennis tourna- ment were carried on under the auspices of the Association. Awards of numerals and letters will be given to those having a suffi- cient number of points. Any member who has earned two hundred and fifty points is entitled to their class numerals. An E. C. emblem will be awarded to any girl receiving eight hundred points. There are a number of different ways of earning points, such as mak- ing the first class team in soccer, baskbet ball, etc., hiking, winner in the singles tennis tournament and participating in unorganized work as bowl- ing and horseback riding. The association has participated in two inter-collegiate play days, one held at J. Sterling Morton Junior College, Cicero, Illinois, and the other at North Central College, Naperville, Illinois. Also in an inter-collegiate tennis match with Wheaton College. In addition to the regular class hours, the W. A. A. has had use of the gymnasium every Friday evening.

It was not until 1927 that an organization was formed which could bring the German speaking students of the college together. In that year several students, with the aid of Professors Kaufmann and Hansen, or- ganized the club. The club is composed of men students only, who have a speaking knowledge of German. The meetings are conducted in the German lan- guage. The programs are arranged by the students themselves with the help of Professor Blenk, now head of the German department of the college. Meetings of the club are held once every month. These meetings are purely social, in which an invited speaker gives a talk and discussion on some phase of German life or literature. This is followed by refreshmnts, old German folk songs, and toasts. Special meetings are called for the transaction of business. Since last year the club has opened a meeting room for its members in the old Music Hall. Here one will find German periodicals, a radio, and a billiard table. The room was decorated by the club members them- selves, and furnished by donations from members and friends. This year the club has enlarged its membership and much interest is shown by the new members. This year it also aided the Elmhurst College Theatre in the presentation of the well known play " Alt Heidelberg. " Page Sixty-six Oriental Cluh Ralph Hunger, Siegfried Dietrich Carl Berges, Vice-President President Secretary-Treasurer Emil Hansen, Faculty Advisor The Oriental Club, formerly known as the Mission Society, has been in existence for many years upon our campus. Its purpose is to interest students in missionary work. It also seeks to study the culture of the world through the Mission fields; some phase of Oriental culture is discussed at each bimonthly meeting. This year, for the first time in the history of the club, coeds were ad- mitted into membership. Although the membership was thus added to, a great loss was sustained in the sudden death of Professor Henry Katter- john, who had served as faculty advisor for many years. The organiation maintains close associations with the Chicago Union of Student Volunteers and was host to that organization on April 30. The members of the club are: Messrs. Delfs, Dietrich, Hunger, Kuether, Lindorff, Rasche, Steinmann, Berges, Steve, Suedmeyer, Shear- mire; and the Misses Deters, Schreiber, and Steckmann, with Professor Emil Hansen as a faculty advisor. Page Sixty-seven The Pretheological Club Edward Fresen, Fred Shearmire, William H. Ruhl, Leon Beutler, Secretary Vice-President President Treasurer To develop fellowship among its members and on the campus in general ; to foster pretheological interests, and to discuss common problems is the primary purpose and aim of the Pretheological Club. The organization of the Pretheological Club had its origin in the trip of pretheological students to Eden Seminary at St. Louis in March, 1931. At that time Eden Theological Seminary was host to all Senior and Junior Pretheological men. The group of twenty-five men spent three eventful days at Eden, and, upon their return to Elmhurst, they took up the formal organization of a pretheological club. A constitution was drawn up, an executive committee elected, and since then the Pretheological Club has taken its place among the other campus organizations. This year for its program the club carried out a series of lecture and discussion meetings. Able speakers, both clergymen and laymen, brought their messages to the club members and conducted the forums. Outstand- ing among these men were Dr. Press, president of Eden Theological Semi- nary ; Rev. Ralph Abele, editor of the Evangelical Student, St. Louis ; and Dr. Michael Kross, prominent Elmhurst lawyer. Early in April the Pretheological Seniors and Juniors were again the guests of Eden Seminary. This event culminated this year ' s activities of the club in its earnest endeavor to make its presence felt on the campus. Page Sixty-eight W ATHLETICS The Coaches Ralph Curtis Ralph Curtis, a graduate of Elm- hurst College, took over the capac- ity of head coach in the Athletic Department this year. Ralph, who is well liked by the students and Alumni, served as Assistant Coach last year to Coach F. C. MacFar- land. Curtis set up an enviable record in football, in spite of the " suicide " schedule. Basketball provided an- other " suicide " schedule in which defeat was to be expected, for the material on hand was mostly new. In spite of this handicap, Ralph put a very well coached team on the floor. His tracksters showed up well in two indoor meets, and much can be expected from them in outdoor competition. There has been a very evident spirit of good sportsmanship in all the teams this year. The fellows played the game fairly, regardless of whether they were winning or losing. This spirit has won Ralph many an ardent follower among the people of Elmhurst. Alfred Reed Alfred Reed, an ex-Elmhurst athlete, fills the position of Assis- tant Coach. For many years Al was prominent in various types of athletics, mainly football, basket- ball, and baseball. With his many years of experience in all types of spirts it is no wonder that Al was selected to fill this vacancy. This is Al ' s first year of helping coach the Pirate teams. He assisted Curtis with the football team, and he had full charge of baseball, while Ralph devoted his time to the track team. Al not only distin- guished himself in athletics, but also in his studies; it was an ex- ception for one not to notice his name on the honor roll. Al is known to all, and liked by all. He is never too busy to help the players improve their methods or tactics, and he always has a kind word of encouragement to everyone. With his enviable per- sonality and ability, Al should make a good reputation as a coach here at Elmhurst. A Message From Our Coach The keystone of any program that will lead one to real happiness must be the achieving of all around health and human effectiveness. A program with these ends in view must embody the physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual well-being of the students. Using the words of a well known philosopher " it is not a soul, it is not a body that we are training up ; it is a man, and we are not to fashion one without the other. " The program for physical education in a school should involve suffi- cient activities so that all those students who so desire can participate in one branch or another of it. It is with this in mind that we have arranged a program extensive enough to let all students have a part. Varisity football at Elmhurst College will consist of a schedule of from seven to nine games. The number of contestants or the squad shall include all those who come out and continue to do so throughout the season. The probable num- ber will be between thirty and forty. At the same time there will be in competition a cross country team. This team shall have a schedule of five or six meets and shall practice daily and put in as much time as is required for them to reach and remain in good condition. The squad will include about ten or twelve men. The basketball schedule will consist of about sixteen games for both A and B teams. Practice, for those not playing football shall start on the first of October and continue throughout the season. After the regular schedule there will be two or three weeks of practice for the purpose of developing a team for the following year. T he baseball schedule will consist of from ten to twelve games. The practice period will begin about the middle of March or as soon as weather conditions will permit and shall come to an end with the completion of the final game or before the first day of June. The squad shall consist of about twenty-five men. Tennis will have a scheduled season of about ten games. There will be daily practice which will last as long as the coach sees fit. The num- ber of contestants shall be from six to ten. In the intra-mural sports the program will be run under the super- vision of a coach with the assistance of referees and the captains of the respective sports. The purpose shall be to give all the male students a chance to participate in some form of competitive sport. There will be a six team football league (touch football) . The game shall be played with a round robin schedule and shall be governed by rules which will not require superb physical condition or bodily contact. There will be about sixty men competing. There will be a fall tennis tournament under the direction of Mr. Arends. This will be an elimination tournament and there will be about twenty contestants. Intra-mural basketball will consist of a six team league. The games will be less than the regulation length so as offset the lack of proper physi- cal condition. This schedule will also be played in round-robin style. There will be about forty-five men competing. There will be a kitten ball league of six teams. The schedule will be round-robin and the number of players will be about sixty. The intra-mural track meet will be held the week before the regular track season starts. There will be six teams including about sixty men. If there are enough men interested in wrestling and boxing during the winter there will be classes for this purpose. The number competing will be uncertain until the time arrives. Page Seventy Foothall Captains Eeuben Getschow Reuben Getschow was unani- mously elected as captain of this year ' s football team. An unfortu- nate accident prevented Rube from playing more than one game. In the third quarter of our first game he was injui-ed, and immediately taken to the hospital. For nine days Rube lay in the hospital, and on Sunday morning he passed away. As a football player Rube was unexcelled. He always played the game hard and clean. After the 1930 season Rube was chosen as All-Conference guard. During that season he had demonstrated his football ability and at the end of it he was unanimously elected to captain this year ' s eleven. Carl Kerber Carl " Cully " Kerber, filled the important capacity of " captain " after the Pirate ' s first game. Cully was not green in this position, be- cause he served as co-captain the previous year, and captain the year before that. Cully showed his abil- ity in backing up the line and carrying the ball. That Kerb has all the require- ments of a first class football player is shown by the fact that for two years he was mentioned on the all-star team of the Illinois Inter- collegiate Athletic Association. His service was greatly missed in the last games as a result of an injury received in the kick-off in the Milli- kan game.

In spite of the many tough breaks, which are likely to happen to any team, Elmhurst ' s gridders had a successful season. Many of the positions had to be filled by freshmen, but Coach Curtis and Assistant Coach Reed turned out a snappy, well groomed team. The first game was played on the local field. It was a hard fought game from whistle to whistle, and until the last few minutes of play it showed all indications of being a scoreless tie. Valparaiso completed a long forward pass that ended in a touchdown, and they scored the point after touchdown, which made the score 7-0. " Rube " Getschow, captain of the Pirate eleven, was fatally injured in the fourth quarter of this game. This accident considerably depleted the fighting spirit of the team. Kalamazoo Normal was the third game on the schedule but this game was cancelled. In the four following games Elmhurst was victorious. The Pirates defeated Eureka, Shurtleff, Mt. Morris, and Milwaukee Normal. The Shurtleff game was played on " Homecoming Day. " This has made the seventh consecutive Homecoming game in which Elmhurst has been vic- torious. A large number of Alumnae and students saw the Pirate machine defeat the powerful and scrappy Shurtleff eleven. The three following games with McKendree, Milliken, and St. Viator resulted in defeats for Elmhurst. These were three of the hardest games of the season, and in these the Pirates were without the services of the regulars. Kerber and Hutzel were injured early in the Milliken game, and neither finished the game ; they were also unable to participate in the fol- lowing and final game. In this last game with St. Viator, three more of the Pirate eleven were injured. Jimmie DeTuerk and Taebel received sprained ankles, and Frank Kroll received a wrenched knee. This game ended the season, and most of the players were satisfied because they had then completed eight hard " examination days. " Prospect for a good team next year look quite favorable. The team will be captained by Harold Bloom; he played every minute of the entire eight games of the 1931-32 season. With such a willing captain and the cooperation of the players and coaches Elmhurst should be proud of next year ' s team. However they will miss the services of " Guts " Kerber, " Oak " Davis, " Moon " Holden, " Von " Ebeling, and " Gonop " Smotherman.

He has been at Elmhurst only three years, but he won his let- ter twice. Dave was a good shot, and consequently was one of the leading scorers on the team. He went in fighting. Although the team was not highly successful in winning games, he in- spired a fighting spirit in his team-mates that made everyone feel proud of him as well as of the team. Dave was a good sport ; this alone makes him a good captain. Page Seventy-five The Basketball Squad Top row: Uthlaut; Kurbat; Klemmer; Bayer.

Looking over the 1931-32 cage card, we have come to the definite conclusion that it was a " suicide " schedule. Coach Curtis, starting his first year as Pirate basketball mentor, had more problems to face than any coach could wish or care for. Only three lettermen. Captain Davis, Kerber, and Peters reported at the opening prac- tice; Kurbat, Reed, Clemmer, Zielinski and Uthlaut came through slowly. The Bucs lost seven games in a row before they began clicking. Speaking of this " suicide " schedule we find fifteen Little Nineteen conference games listed. Carthage, St. Viator, North Central, DeKalb, and Macomb were the most formidable teams of the lot. Carthage won the league crown, while Macomb ran a close second. The other three teams finished close at their heels. The heat of the Elmhurst-Wheaton cage rivalry was rekindled; Wheaton came off victorious in both tussles, win- ning by 35-28 scores. The Bucs played good ball to stop Mt. Morris on the Pirate floor by a 26-15 score. Clemmer and Peters featured the individual showings in this struggle. Mt. Morris won the return game, 29-26, in the closing minutes. Elmhurst surprised a strong Lake Forest quintet, and set them down, 31-27. Captain Davis and " Bud " Reed stood out in this contest. Zielinski played wonderful basketball on the defense. Both games against North Central were close. Elmhurst led the last contest until late in the second half, when the Cards rang up four long baskets to come ofl: victorious. The annual basketball banquet in honor of the twenty-five Pirate cage- men was held at St. Peter ' s church in Elmhurst. Letters were awarded to the following men: Captain Davis, Kerber, and Peters, Seniors; Kurbat and Zielinski, Juniors ; Uthlaut, Reed, and Clemmer, Freshmen. " Bud " Reed was elected captain for the 1932-33 season.

" Zulu " is an ex- cellent batsman, who certainly knows how to cover his territory about third base. " Zulu " is a versatile baseball player, for he can also assume the role of pitcher if called upon. " Zulu " has a smile for all, and because of his excellent disposition and ability to play baseball, he has been chosen to lead the Pirate nine. It is very evident that he has the co- operation of his team mates as well as the support of the student body. Baseball Back row: Al Reed, Coach; Schultz; Vetter; Schade; Hoefer; R.

If a start means anything, the Elmhurst College baseball campaign of 1932 should be far from a disappointment. Coach Reed ' s charges opened up against Concordia like big leagures — a 12-5 win being the ultimate out- come. Ten Northern Illinois Conflicts remain for the battling Buccaneers to wade through. Lake Forest, 1931 champions, seem the most formidable of the lot. Armour Tech, new member of the circuit, always possesses a powerful machine, and this year ' s nine will probably not contradict that very fact. Mt. Morris, North Central, and Wheaton are the other 1932 Pirate foes. Only four lettermen have returned for service this year. They are: Captain Zielinski, Behle, Smotherman, and Biasch. Freshman material is not what could be termed as good. " Bud " Reed is the only real con- tribution of the first year class. Bud, however, handles his position as shortstop well. Hoerdt, Wegner, and Davis from last year ' s team, have boken into the lineup. Smotherman has been shifted from left to third base where he seems a stationary fixture. Behle ' s great arm and potent bat have made him the most valuable player on the team. Zielinski, " Bunny " Bayer, and Umbeck seem to be the cream of the hurling corps thus far. Biasch, Davis, Rest, and Baumrucker compose the outfield roster.

He was not chosen merely for his ability to lead a track squad, but also for his ability to help and encourage his team mates. Armin, better known as the " flying Hessian, " is Elmhurst ' s pride and joy in the broad jump event. He also brings the bacon home in the dashes, but the broad jump is his speciality. With such a hard working captain and a willing squad, the team should have a favorable season despite the fact that they lack some of last year ' s men. ♦ Page Eighty-one Track Squad Back row: Curtis, Coach; Bowers; Steinman; Bessmer; Eilers; Steve; Walsh; Bloohm; Wegman; Schulz; Hotz, Manager. Middle row: Dietrich Blaufuss; Kroll; Dreusicke; Schuett; Ruhl; John DeTuerk; Holden; Jim DeTuerk. Seated : Kester ; Segner. This article was written before Elmhurst had competed in any of the meets on the schedule; however the school was represented by a small squad in two invitational indoor meets at Naperville and at the Chicago University Field House. At the I. I. A. C. meet in Naperville Elmhurst garnered a fifth place. Captain Dreusicke, Ruhl, Schuett, Bayer, Stein- bock, and Holden were point winners for the Pirates. At the Armour Tech. meet at the Chicago Field House, a small band, namely, Dreusicke, Bayer, in the broad jump and high jump, Steinbock, Steinman, Schuett, and Jimmie De Tuerk in the 880 yard relay, and Schuett, Kester, Schultz, and Segner in the two mile relay all gathered points for Elmhurst. The lettermen from last year ' s team are Capt. Dreusicke, Bayer, Ruhl, Steinbock, Paul Meyer, Bloohm, and Blaufuss. The new men are Tom Clemmer and Kroll in the shot, Schuett in the half mile, John Holden in the pole vault, hurdles, and high jump, Kester and Schultz in the distance runs, and Steinman in the dashes. Ralph Curtis is coach of this year ' s team. Although this is his first year as a Pirate track coach, his ability and available material will cer- tainly give Elmhurst a track team to be proud of. Page Eighty-two Tennis Captain Sharvy Umbeck, who is serving his second year as a Pirate tennis captain, was one of three letter men to return to school this year. Umbeck demonstrated his ability to carry the responsibilities of a captain, and consequently he again gained the honor to pilot the Pirate team. It is needless to say that Sharvy is well liked by all who know him, and that he plays an enviable game of tennis. ♦ Page Eighty-three Tennis Squad Press Gerfen Sander Umbeck With three veterans as a nucleus, and several promising newcomers, the 1932 tennis team promises to be unusually strong. Under the tutelage of Coach C. C. Arends, a brilliant season is expected. The three returning lettermen are Captain Sharvy Umbeck, Ernst Press, and Dick Gerfen. Haag and Clemmer, freshmen, and Sander, a junior, have been showing up unusually well in early spring drills, and a keen struggle for the varsity positions is likely. The schedule this year is very difficult. Ten matches against Lake Forest, DeKalb, Wheaton, St. Viator, and North Central, have been carded. Besides these matches, the district and state tournament will be entered by the Pirates. Tennis Schedule April 16— Elmhurst T. T.

Outside of his official capacity as captain of the harriers, he also filled the role of coach and trainer of the team. Ruhl served his second year as captain, and this was his third year as a letterman. Bill is a clean cut, hard working fellow, worthy to be called the best captain the harriers ever had. His ability to win races un- doubtedly is equal to his ability to lead his teammates. ♦ Pag-e Eighty-five Cross Country Squad Back row: Stahlhut; Walsh. Front row: Schulz; Kester; Hoefer; Schuett; Ruhl; Bessmer; Bowers; Rodriguez. At the opening of the Cross Country Season last fall, only one letter- man, Captain Ruhl reported. Captain Ruhl acted as coach and trainer of the team. The squad consisted of twelve men : Captain Ruhl, Rodriguez, Schuett, Walch, Bessmer, Gus Schultz, Hoefer, Wegman, Bowers, Stahlhut, Bartelt and Kester. Of this group Ruhl, Rodriquez, and Kester earned letters. Although only a freshman this year, Kester was given the honor of being Captain of the Harriers for the coming season. Elmhurst failed to win any of its meets, but much credit must go to Ruhl who placed first in four meets, third in a meet with Illinois Normal University, and Sixth in the State meet. In the triangular meet with Milwaukee Normal, and North Central College, Ruhl set a record of 16:19 for the three mile course. Kester placed tenth in this meet. In the triangular meet with Loyola University and North Central College, Ruhl narrowly missed setting a course record, and Kester and Rodriquez placed seventh and eighth respectively.

Page Eighty-six School of Music Karl M. Chworowsky Director of Elmhurst College School of Music The Reverend Karl M. Chworowsky of St. Peter ' s Evangelical Church in Elmhurst, the College Church, has been a vital personality in the func- tioning of the School of Music because of his exceptional range of musical knowledge and experience. His distinction as a musician is mainly as pianist and accompanist, he having had considerable experience as ac- companist for the famous violin virtuoso Waldemar Von Geltch, at present head of the violin department of the University of Kansas. Mr. Chwor- owsky was his official accompanist during the seasons 1914-1915 at the University of Wisconsin. He also accompanied the famous basso profundo George Walker, of the Charlottenburg Opera of Berlin, Germany, during his 1915 tour in America. Mr. Chworowsky ' s reputation as music critic in Elmhurst is well established, his contributions of musical criticism being in demand by all of the local papers. For two years he was musical critic for Milwaukee papers, and for more than twenty-five years he has conducted various choral organizations. Mr. Chworowsky has been engaged for several years in coaching voice students in German and English diction, being at present affiliated in that capacity with the DeYoung voice studios in Chicago.

He is a pupil of Clarence Eidem of Chicago and he has studied under the famous Jan Chia- pusso, of Chicago, under whose tutelage he has made remarkable strides as concert per- former. As director of the Women ' s Glee Club, Mi-. Hille has shown himself to be a choral con- ductor of genuine musicianship and artistic resourcefulness. Glenn Most, Mus. B.. . .Instructor in Voice Glenn Most, bass-baritone, is rapidly com- ing to the fore as a concert-singer and as a capable teacher of singing. He received much of his earlier training with the famous Bohemian-American baritone Boza Oumir- ofF, and his recent study has been with Dr. Charles N. Granville, Chicago Conservator, with whom he is still doing repertoire work. Mr. Most trains the voices of the mem- bers of both college glee clubs besides in- structing private pupils and he is much in demand as recital-singer. As soloist with the Men ' s Glee Club and through his many concert appearances in and about Chicago, he is steadily increasing his reputation as one of the most promising of the younger bass-baritones in this part of the country. John L. Eezatto, Instructor in Voice Conductor Men ' s Glee Club Mr. Eezatto comes to the Elmhurst Col- lege School of Music after several years ' experience as music supervisor in Wisconsin high schools.

As conductor of the Elmhurst College Men ' s Glee Club during the past season Mr. Rezatto has shown himself to be an able choral leader. Under his direction the Glee Club has substantiated the impression that Elmhurst College possesses one of the finest of small college male chorus organizations. Page Eighty-eight W. Wray Finnemore, Instructor in Piano, Organ, and Theory In Mr. Finnemore the organ and piano de- partments of the school of music have a talented pedagogue and a concert performer of genuine ability. Mr. Finnemore did his organ and piano work with masters like H. B. Bartholomew and Lowell Townsend. His work in harmony, counterpoint, com- position, conducting, and musical history was done with Chester Schockly, Rosetter Cole, G. C. Bainum, and Felix Borowski. Mr. Finnemore is much in demand as con- cert organist and holds a responsible church- organ position. As teacher he is steadily increasing his classes and adding to his reputation as a conscientious instructor and helpful musical guide. Paul Selonke, Instructor in Violin and Musical Theory Mr. Selonke received the greater part of his violin training from Herbert Butler of the American Conservatory of Music and studied theory and harmony under such recognized teachers as John Palmer, Louis N. Dodge, and Felix Browski of Chicago. He is a popular concert violinist and has frequently been heard over the radio, his fine musical taste and technical ability mak- ing him a host of friends. As teacher, Mr. Selonke is establishing an enviable reputa- tion, and his classes in ensemble music and theory are proving very attractive. He is a most valuable asset of the violin depart- ment of the School of Music. Florence Moore, Director Art Department As head of the School of Music Art De- partment Miss Moore has done much to develop this particular branch of instruc- tion in the Fine Arts and her classes are steadily growing. She is well equipped for her work by her training in the Chicago Art Institute, the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, and Miss Church ' s School of Applied Art, Composition, and Design. Her work is especially along the lines of commercial art and pictorial art, her wide experience as art-contributor to leading magazines and newspapers of the land giv- ing her teaching in these branches added authority and prestige.

Mrs. Chiapusso is frequently heard in recitals, and her appearances are always rare musical experiences. Her pupils demonstrate that she is as capable a pedagogue as she is a performer, and particularly as exponent of the Curtis Class system of piano instruction is she developing the piano department of the school of music and adding to her reputation as musician and teacher. Maude B. Bouslough, Professor of Voice Miss Bouslough ranks as one of the outstanding sopranos of Chicago, her fre- quent appearances as soloist with choruses and in recital and concert having won her highest praise from the leading music critics of the great western metropolis. Miss Bouslough did much of her work with such famous teachers as Charles W. Clark, Franz Prochowsky, Frank La Forge, and John Sample, and has for years been soloist with the University of Chicago Chapel Choir.

His coming to the school of music has invested the violin department with new -prestige and authority, and his leadership offers unusual opportunities to aspiring violin students. Mary Tris-Konecny, Instructor in Piano Mrs. Konecny, brilliant young Chicago concert pianist and teacher, is a student of the late William Sherwood and for several years was associated with the Sherwood School of Music. For many years she has been the accompanist of her famous hus- band, Josef Konecny, appearing with him in the capacity of concert artist and reaping most flattering recognition wherever she appeared. Mrs. Konecny is an unusually capable teacher of piano. Her splendid skill as pedagogue and pianistic coach is making many friends for her. Eleanore Tolen Gilbert, Instructor in Dramatic Art, Expression and Public Speaking A graduate of the Theater Guild School and the Chalif Normal School, Miss Gilbert brings to her work as teacher of dramatic art in the school of music splendid equipment and an unusual native talent both for stage-work and for teaching. She has done special work with the famous actress Elizabeth Dean and more recently with Isabel Merson, formerly of His Majesty ' s Theater in London. As a reader and interpreter of literature Miss Gilbert has won the unstinted praise of audiences and critics, and her direction of dramatic performances ranks her high as theater coach.

Under the able guidance of Director John L. Rezatto, the Glee Club this year enjoyed one of its best seasons. In addition to three major tours, the club gave numerous concerts near Elmhurst, including a radio engage- ment at WMAQ. The December tour took in Indianapolis, Manchester, Mich., Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Mount Clemens, Michigan. Between semesters the men travelled south, appearing at Peotone, Illinois, St. Louis, Breese, Illi- nois, Mascoutah, Illinois, and Carlinville, 111. The third tour, in February, carried the men north into Wisconsin. They sang at Merrill, Wausau, Ripon, and Sheboygan. Besides the chorus numbers, various features were presented on concerts. Waldemar Hille, accompanist and pianist, Glenn Most, basso, and Richard Elliott, euphonium, were soloists. The quartet, consisting of Edwin Riske, bass, Frank Kroll, baritone, Leonard Weigel, second tenor, and Roy Gieselmann, first tenor, also sang at concerts. The spirit of the men has been more than usually co-operative this year. A fine spirit of fellowship was exhibited at all times and nearly all the men are anticipating another year of work with the club.

Baumann President Librarian The Women ' s Glee Club of 1931-32 was the first one in the history of the college to make an extensive tour. On February 20th, the club made a six-day tour singing concerts in Carlinville, Illinois, St. Louis, Missouri, Edwardsville, Illinois, Burlington, Iowa, Kewanee, Illinois, and Chicago. The women were very fortunate in having Waldemar Hille as con- ductor. Mr. Hille, besides being the secretary of the School of Music, is well known in Elmhurst and Chicago as a pianist and conductor. Through his efforts, the club has been built up, in little more than a year, to a chorus of professional quality. Miss Maude Bouslough, well-known soprano, accompanied the girls on their tour as soloist. A sextet, composed of members of the glee club, sang several selections on concert programs, and also sang at chapel periods in the college.

The Chapel Choir, a mixed chorus of sixteen voices, was organized during the current academic year for the express purpose of serving in the regular chapel services. The chorus is under the direction of John L. Rezatto and has made valuable contributions, both as to ritual music and anthems, to our programs of chapel worship during the brief period of their existence. Their future development and contributions are being looked forward to with much expectation. The Chapel Choir regularly appears in the traditional choir-robes and thereby adds distinction and dignity to the chapel services. Page Ninety-eight Elmhurst College Band Richard Elliott, Director The college band this year has been unusually active in school func- tions of various types. Director Elliott had a good group of men left from last year ' s band, and with the addition of a number of new members, devel- oped the organization into a band which is fully deserving of the title it earned on many of its trips — the best band in the Little Nineteen. Besides playing at football and basketball games, the band led the Homecoming Day parade and made a very good showing. In April the band presented its first annual Spring Concert, and was hailed as a first-rate musical organization, ranking with the best in Elm- hurst tradition. A varied program was given ranging from stirring marches to more serious numbers. Edwin Geisler, trumpet ; Wilf ed Beck- meyer and Franklin Hinrichs, saxophones; and Richard Elliott, euphon- ium; were soloists at the concert. Sunday afternoon campus concerts are being planned by the director during the remainder of the year, and the band will probably again repre- sent the college in the Elmhurst Memorial Day parade. Page Ninety-nine Elmhurst College Orchestra The College Orchestra is a newly reorganized group under the direc- tion of Mr. Paul Selonke, professor of Violin, Harmony and Composition. During the past season it has acted mainly in the capacity of dance en- semble for local college social functions. The membership has been limited to a very select group and was purposely kept as a small orchestra. Their late organization also made it hard to get a regular practice schedule. This organization will no doubt be the nucleus for a larger and more active orchestra in the coming year. Mr. Selonke deserves much credit for organizing this fine group of musicians.
