Faculty Advisor [2] WE WELCOME YOU TO THE PRESENTATION of our great showing of tKis year. Our faculty offers an important prelude; our fellow-students play the main roles of tKis movie of college life. TKe sKort years we students live on our Campus seem to in our memory as tKe reels of a film, wKich you may see on tKe Elms screen in all its tKrilling reality. Our cameramen and directors Kave been busy the last few montKs on tKe ElmKurst College Campus lot. Our reels are made up of action, posed scenes, and also " off tKe set sKots. TKe favorites of tKe fans — wKat tKe stars are do- ing at ElmKurst — tKe comedy and caprice — tKe glamor and glory — tKe rivalries and loves- — tKe Kid- den drama pulsing beKind tKe curtains of tKe most spectacular picture is wKat tKe ElmKurst College Studio presents to you in ' •EILP IIHURST ON IPARAIDIE " iriEATUIRIE IPIICTLJIRIE II MiErviioiRiiurvi ElmKurst College suffered an irreparable loss in the death of its President Emeritus, Dr. Daniel Irion, on October 25, 1935. In over fifty-five years of service and devotion to Elmhurst, Dr. Irion made a Kost of friends and endeared bimself to all wKo knew bim. In bis quiet and sincere way, be lived as one wbo " walked witb God. " PAUL W ' OBSCHALL One of the most familiar figures on the campus, Paul Wobschall, better known as Becker, " died on March 7. He had orked for the College for over two decades and was well-known by many Elmhdrst Ahi in n I . EDWIN GROSS The friends of Edwin Gross were severely shocked to hear of his having drowned during the summer. Ed was a quiet fellow who went about his business on the campus. Few knew him well, but those who did valued his friendship. [8] Since " The Elms " becomes actually a record ol events and personalities, interpreted by student opinion, 1 welcome the opportunity to express m ' personal conviction tbat such journalistic and literary efforts are conducive to supplement the more Formal efforts in educa- tion. Consequently, 1 take pleasure in congratulating the staff and faculty advisor on the in- terest and ingenuity displayed in producing year after year a characteristic volume. The more such an enterprise displays or reveals the quality of the editors and the object of their description, the more definitely will it have served its purpose in training the writers and in quickening within the reader a whole-hearted response to the claims set forth, bmce an institution of learning is judged by its product— the student and alumnus we the recipi- ents of the advantages secured in this environment and by these contacts do gladly encourage others seeking similar adventure, to put to the test the offerings ol Elmhurst. [9] in THEOPHIL W. MUELLER, M.A. Dean and Registrar of the College and Professor of Sociology GENEVIEVE STAUDT. MA. Dean of Women and Assistant Professor of Education THE FACULTY As a prelude to our sKow we present the all-time stars of our movie lot — the faculty. Many of them tiave been witK the Elmliurst College Studio for a number of years, and com- panies of actors both past and present have benefitted by their able guidance. The faculty, of course, plays its main role in the classroom but is not lax in other accomplishments. Faculty members have won and are winning favor with the fans by successful achieve- ments in their outside activities. Dr. Paul Lehmann has proved his value to the E-C-S, for, to the admiration of all his friends, he now holds the degree of Doctor of Theology. Pro- fessor Paul Crusius also deserves special mention for the honor he has brought E-C-S with the completion of his doctoral thesis. We are happy to welcome to our company of directors Professor Herman Sander, who signed his contract with us at the beginning of the year. Pro- fessor Karl Carlson also came back to us this year. He spent the previous year on a well- deserved sojourn in Europe and has now come back as eager as ever to play his role, and we are just as eager to have him. However, we are at the same time sorry to see some of our most able directors taking leave of us. Professor Emil Hansen is retiring from active service this June, and all of us, especially the German players, will miss his most valuable guidarice. Words cannot express the depression we feel to know that Professor Loyal Ollmann, Ole, one of the best scouts on our lot, has temporarily severed his contract with us. His ambitions have carried him on to further work in his field. The company is unfortunate also in losing the services of three other capable directors in Dr. Rudolf J. Priepke, Dr. Harold M. Tolo, and Professor R. Hadly Waters who will not be with us next year and will be missed by all on the lot. i r- " t-tti As a final tribute to the faculty, let us salute " The Pills Brothers Quartet (Llille, Waters, Sander, and Tolo to youl). Remember their noble performance? The studio statt feels that Professor Waters deserves special credit for his work with The Elms, and we count ourselves fortunate indeed to have had him as the advisor in making this stupendous production.

J SIEPS IIOIR STARS FRED DENBEAUX ' ERNON HOECKER President Seaetary-Tieaswer It was in tKe Spring of 1952 that the executives of Elmhurst College Studios, stimulated by tKe increased competition between its productions and those of M-G-M, R-K-O, and other motion picture companies, decided to add fresh talent to its long list of stars. As a result of this decision, over one hundred promising actors and actresses were placed under contract to the studio. These players passed their screen tests at E-C-S in the Fall of that year. Today, only twenty-six of the hopeful young men and women who signed contracts in 1952 remain. Of those who no longer are with the studio, some were unequal to the strain of the severe competition, and others were lured away to rival studios. Those who this year have fulfilled the terms of their four year contract with Elm hurst College Studios are known to motion picture fans the world over as the Senior Stars of 1956. Included in the select group of Senior Stars are players and technicians whose varied abilities have enabled them to engage successfully in many different fields; their talents made possible hundreds of splendid productions of various kinds. The Senior Stars headed the fash- ion parade of E-C-S this year with their stunning Senior jackets. In addition, they were the first group to receive credit for writing major theses. But most interesting of all is the fact that not one of the Senior Stars has limited his (or her) interest to his (or her) position as a link between Elmhurst College Studios and the public, but each has, in private fife, be- come absorbed with intellectual pursuits in many different fields, and has taken advantage of the varied opportunities offered by E-C-S to those desiring a well-balanced way of life. Late in April, Ered, the capable leader of the Senior Stars, found it expedient to resign his position. The group immediately elected Kenneth Boldt to reign over the closing days of their careers as E-C-S players. The members of the class have confidence in Mr. Boldt s ability to lead them through the few last glorious days climaxing their careers here at E-C-S. [ 15] JOHN BAN AS, A.B., History FranUm Park, Illinois Four years ago. when E-C-S decided to .rnake a lull length foothall picture under the direction of Ralph Curtis, John was a newcomer to the studios, and was forced to be content with a minor role, but so rapid was his improvement that when the picture was recast a year later, under a new director, Pete Langhorst, John was awarded a place as a featured player. In his fourth year with E-C-S, he was starred as co-captain of the team. When John has completed his contract with E-C-S. he intends to teach speech and drama to others. HENRY BAUMGAERTEL, A.B.. German Windsor. Colorado Hank is principally known among E-C-S players for his pro- liciency in Ping Pong and his thorough knowledge of German. He captured the Ping Pong championship of the studios, and under the guidance of Director Dummer. he has become a noteworthy scho ar Tn ' various phases of German language and literature. Hank also found time for intensive participation in interclass sports, and m hrs last year he played a major role on the championship basketball team of the Senior Stars. DORIS AY. A.B.. German Eliuliursl, Illinois Doris aided in arranging the social functions of the Goethe X ' erein, Le Cercle Francais, Women ' s Union, and the Saturday Soviet. Possessed of a high degree of artistic talent, she was re- sponsible for a large portion of the art work in connection with the " Elm of 1935. " To Doris went the honor of reigning over the Junior Prom of 1955, the top-notch social affair of the Senior Stars ' career. Her intellectual interests lay in the study of langu- ages; she could converse in German or French and had a thorough knowledge of the literature of both languages. LEONA BUENGER. A.B.. Sociology Oak Park, Illinois Lee has the ability to do many things and to do them well. In her fourth year with E-C-S, she was not only responsible for the production of the " Elms of 1956, " but she also was the Brst coed in the studios to write a major Thesis, and besides this, she taught school every afternoon the second semester. As one of the most active of the Senior Stars, Lee was a member of the Women s L nion, serving as its president last year, and she also participated in the activities of the Goethe Verein, as social chairman and vic- president. As further proof of her versatility, she played on the Senior Stars basketball team and sang in the chorus of Pirates of Penzance. " Lee reached the tops of her career as Business Manager of the " Elms " last year and Editor this year. One of her many accomplishments was driving her Hup anytime and any- where. [ 16] FRED DENBEAUX, A.B.. Phil osopKy 5 . Louis, hlissouri After signing a four year contract witK E-C-S in tKe fall of 1932, Fred began a career wKich has since proved sensational and varied. For tv ' o years he played minor roles in athletic pictures, as well as playing in one feature length production, Dear Brutus. In the third year of his engagement with the studios, Fred began to concentrate his activities upon private studies in pKilosophy and religious doctrine, writing frequent articles on these subjects and directing various studio groups interested in them. PAUL EISEN, A.B., English Ndes. Michigan One of the most versatile of E-C-S stars, Paul has been fea- tured in several major productions, such as " Dear Brutus, House- party, " " Life of Man, " " Twelfth Nigbt, " and " Pirates of Penzance. " He gives himself over completely to tKe role he is playing and has the reputation of being one of the most favorite stars of the fans, which honor he well deserves. He is an active leader in the College Theater group. Paul has also found time to participate in sport shorts, as a tennis player, and as intramural manager. When not appearing in pictures, Paul spends a great deal of time in perfecting his knowledge of theology, philosophy. English, and kindred subjects. DOROTHY HAGGE, A.B., English Lombard, Illinois Like so many of the feminine Senior Stars, Dorothy was one of the social satellites. Her ability with pen and brusK caused her to be in demand as publicitor and poster-designer. Sbe also found time to sing in the Women ' s Glee, Club her third year. She was a member of the Women ' s Union and Le Cercle Francais throughout her four years at E-C-S. LOWELL HANON, A.B., History Carlyle. Illinois Lowell Hanon canceled his contract with a competitor of E-C-S in order to finish his career at the latter studios. He immediately became interested in the technical side of the studio productions, and as a member of the Goethe Verein and Pre-The Club was in- strumental in keeping the machinery running smoothly. In his third year, he was a member of the tenor section of the Men s Glee Club. L 1 ] EMIL HANSEN. A.B.. Biol ogy Elmhurst, Illinois After being away from ElmKurst College Studios for several years because of ill bealtb. Emil returned last year (1934-35) and immediately assumed several leading athletic roles. Emil was one of tbe finest shots on the basketball squad, and played in the first singles position on the tennis team the latter pari, of last year and this year. He has been preparing for a teacher ' s career, and his intellectual pursuits have lead him to an intensive study of the field of education. X ' ERNON HOECKER, A.B., Sociology Be eL ' ue, Kentucky fii his four years at E-C-S, Vernon pursued a varied career. I le was featured in several athletic pictures as a tennis star, he skillfully handled a role in " Houseparty, " he was president of the Senior Stars at the outset of their stay with E-C-S, and he acted as drum major for the studio band. In addition to this, he was president of the Student Christian Association, was a member of the M C. A. for three years, of the Pre-The Club for a like period, and sang in the Glee Club for two years. Vern became famous at the studios for his informal appearances as a black-face comedian, but the more serious side of his nature was absorbed with the study of sociology and philosophy. ROBERT KARASEK, A.B., History Elmhurst, Illinois Bob played varied roles with equal success. He was at home as a track athlete, a technician for the College Theater, or a cross- country man. In addition, his name appeared on the casting list of the French Circle and the Saturday Soviet. THEODORE KROHNE. A.B., English Chicago, Illinois Ted is ranked by E-C-S as one of its most valuable script writers and photographers. He is a familiar figure around the studios, especially in the newspaper offices, for he was on the Elm Bark staff for four years, and he was its successful editor during his third and fourth years. He was one of the organizers of the Saturday Soviet. Ted has an uncanny ability for producing, on the spur of the moment, excellent original verse, poem, or song to suit any mood or occasion. If you want to know anything about English ask Ted-hell know. Ted has two especially enviable traits — his thorough knowledge of English and his immunity to worry about anything. [ 18 ] ARNOLD LAMBARTM. A.B., Hist ory Saline, hlichigan Arnold Kas played many leading roles in athletic productions. Equally at home in a football, Laskethall or baseball picture, Arnold has consistently reached the heights in his performances. He is best remembered for his part in the 1Q55 football production of E-C-S. In this picture he was cast as the player who scored the winning touchdown in the game between Elmhurst College and its bitterest rival, Wheaton College. In addition to his par- ticipation in these productions, Arnold was a member of the Pre-The Club and the Goethe Verein, and served on the staff of the paper for two years. ARMIN MARONN, A.B., Sociology Milwaukee, Wi sconsin Armin has been one of the foremost clubmen ' of the Senior Stars of E-C-S. Ele was a member of the Y. M. C. A. during the three years of its existence, and has been a member of the Pre- The Club throughout his entire career at E-C-S. In his Brst year at the studio, he was a member of the Men ' s Glee Club. In addition to being a member of these clubs, he served as Publica- tions Chairman for the Student Union during his fourth year. His principal academic interest has been the science of Sociology, and Armin is credited with having written an excellent treatise covering extensive personal research in the field of sociology. EDWARD MEILLER. A. B.. Sociology San Antonio. Texas Coach is a familiar figure around the Commons. The studio members know that it is meal time when they see him hurrying to the dining hall to get his white jacket on and to be ready to serve. Coach is an ambitious member of our company, and his interests lie in several fields. He places his academic pursuits before his athletic or dramatic interests. His attention is centered on sociology, but he finds time to attend the meetings of the Pre-The Club, Goethe Verein, and S. C. A. ERNEST MELCHERT, A.B., Philosophy Black Creek, Wis. Ernie, his pipe, and philosophy — even our photographer could not separate them. Ernie has almost set a record for participation in organizations during his four year career at E-C-S. He has been a member of the Men ' s Glee Club for four years, an important part of the quartette, and a member of the band. He also served on the Elm Bark ' s business staff for two years, and was an energetic member of the S. C. A. In addition, Ernie found time to belong to the Pre-The Club, the Y. M. C. A., the Goethe Verein, the Philosophy Club, the Oriental Club, and the Student Union Cabinet. [ 19] ARMIN MVNZ. A.B.. Ge rman Hebron, North Dakota ElmKurst ' s most rabid haseball fan, Armin, was featured in a number of full-length dramas of the cindertrack by E-C-S. " Peter " proved to be a winner in track in bis last tbree years, and was a member of tbe cross-country team in bis Sopbomore year. He also was an assistant director and helped produce two other athletic pictures in the role of manager of basketball and manager of football. Armin was a member of the cast of the " Pirates of Penzance. ' He also contributed several scenarios of campus life as a member of the Elm Bark staff. Off the set, Armin was a fine German scholar, and a member of three campus organizations, the Goethe Verein. the Y. M. G. A., and the Pre-The Glub. JOHN NIENSTED, A.B., Philosophy Pana, Illinois One of the leading Senior Stars and yet one of the most modest is Johnny. He did not come to E-G-S in answer to the demand for actors of the Tarzan appearance and physique, yet he was the answer to Director Langhorst ' s prayers and was immediately cast in a series of football pictures, where he played varied roles with unusual success. In his last two years, John turned to tennis in addit ion to football, and again made a hit with the fans. How- ever, there is little doubt that any representative of a fan magazine who interviewed Johnny would discover that his real interest lay in intellectual pursuits, with philosophy taking precedence over other studies. Johnny was also a member of the Student Union Gabinet, the Pre-The Glub, Y. M. G. A., and S. G. A. ROLAND PANTERMUEHL, A.B., Philosophy New Braunfels, Texas Tex was lured to E-G-S after a year at a rival studio, and almost immediately became a leader in campus affairs. He was vice-president of the Pre-The Glub, president of the Goethe Verein, and also a prominent member of the Y. M. G. A. and the S. G. A. Like so many of the Senior Stars, his greatest interest lay in the study of philosophy, religious doctrine, and Ghristian ethics. Dur- ing the intermissions of our routine work, most of the company could be found seeking refreshment at Tex ' s ever-popular store. Roily was especially known for his excellent scholarship. LAURA PRESS, A.B., English St. Louis. Missouri Laura has achieved fame not only as a student, but as a ' capable actress. Her more important appearances were in Dear Brutus. " " Life of Man, " and " Twelfth Night. " Laura was also a prominent member of the Women ' s Glee Glub and of Ghapel Ghoir; for two years she aided in guiding the activities of th E-G-S players as a member of the Student Union Executive Gommittee. In her life off the set. she has shown consistent interest in English literature, library work, and in many forms of athletics. She was well-known by the entire company for her delightful St. Louis brogue, and few will forget her excellent interpretations of Tark- ington ' s " Seventeen. [ 20] THEODORE RASCHE, A.B., Biology St. Louis Missouri Ted ' s fine baritone voice Kas won Kim a great number o[ leading roles in musical productions developed by E-C-S. Under ' tbe guidance of Director Waldemar B. Hille, Ted began his career as a member of tbe Men ' s Glee Club in bis first year at Elmburst. His splendid voice soon brougbt bim to tbe attention of tbe producers, and since tbat time be bas been starred in many fine productions. He bas been a member of tbe Cbapel Cboir for four years, and was cbosen president of tbe Men s Glee Club bis fourtb year. He was president of tbe now defunct Oriental Club in tbe second year of bis stay at Elmburst, was a member of tbe Elm Bark staff for two years, and served on tbe Student Union Cabinet for one year. In addition to tbese activities be belonged to tbe Pre-Tbe Club and tbe S. C. A. MARGARET RILEY, A.B., Engbsb Glen Ellvn. Ulmois In 1935, Marge did a fine job of directing tbe fore-runner of tbis production, tbe " Elms of 1955. " Marge is one of tbe most energetic of tbe Senior Stars and tbe foremost woman atblete in our entire company. Sbe was tbe mainstay of tbe gids ' cbampionsbip basketball team and of tbe tennis squad. Marge is a born manager, and sbe is capable of directing anytbing from formal Frencb Club meetings to informal picnics and weenie roasts. As an al[- round gid sbe, is not lax in ber scbolastic acbievements; ber best records are in matbematics and Engbsb literature. WILLIAM STRAND, A.B., Biology Elmhursl. Illinois During bis four year career at Elmburst, Bill appeared ex- clusively in atbletic roles. He was at bome wbetber tbe company was " on location " at tbe football field, tbe basketball floor, or tbe tennis court. He was one of tbe finest tennis players in tbe studio ' s bistory, and bis ability on tbe basketball court was not far sbort of bis tennis skill. Wbat is more. Bill ' s fine disposition made bim one of tbe most popular of tbe Senior Stars. HERBERT TETZLAFF, A.B., German Milwaukee, Wis. For four years. Herb bas been one of tbe busiest men on tbe E-C-S lot. He is famous for bis skill as an organizer, and in tbis capacity rendered constant service to tbe Y. M. C. A., tbe Pre- Tbe Club, tbe Goetbe Verein, tbe S. C. A., and tbe Pbilosopby Club. He also sang in tbe Glee Club and was a member of tbe Cross-country Team. As for intellectual pursuits, bis major interests are German and Sociology. [21] KENNETH BOLDT, A.B. Chemistry Elmh urst. Illinois ELMER HELEIN(3, A.B. Sociology Bland. Missouri LEONARD WOLF, A.B. History Detroit. Michigan Our photographer finally caught the cam?ra-shy Ben Boldt unawares. Sorry we have no formal picture of such a skilled technician and electrician. The other two snaps are of men who renewed their contracts the second semester after an absence of several years from the studios. Pete Helling is an athletic fellow, hut he shuns interviews and interviewers. The third man, Lon Wolf, is a track star, par-excellence. His fans saw him in a number of thrill- ing finishes in his favorite race, the Mile Run. §iEr iioiR " ' orir tihie siet " sihOTS Start at the top left, and read across . . .

The Spring of 1956 finds only fifty-one of the signers still remaining on the records of the studios casting department. However, among these fifty-one are many who must he credited with a mul- tiplicity of commendable roles during their years here. The Juniors this year produced two team captains, of hasehall and track, and two president s, of the Student Union and of the Women ' s Union. The Juniors represent a well-rounded group, for they have been successful both in aspiring to scholastic heights and also in placing many on the studio ' s athletic aggre- gations. Among the Junior Juvenile males are eight varsity lettermen. In addition are many more players, both male and female, with wide and varied activities on the athletic field and in the various campus organizations. Still the topic of studio conversation is the dance staged by the Junior Juveniles in their first year on the studio lot called " Mother Goose Cabaret. It is the boast of this group that this dance was the dance put on with the smallest amount ol money in studio history. The initial effort of the class in staging social functions gives strong promise of a really fine prom to be put on the last of this year, the plans for which are already well under way. We see, then, that the Junior Juveniles represent a group of hard working ) ' oung actors who have given and continue to give superb characterizations in all branches ol campus ac- tivity: scholastic, athletic, and social.

[ 28] SOIPIhOPklOIRIE SATIEILILIITIES Richard X ' andeLieft Don Jepsen Warren Mellin Katlierine Klick President " Vice-President Secretary Treasurer A new page was written in tKe annals of ElmKurst s Kistory in 1954 wKen a group of ninety-one rough, uncultured, uncouth, yet rather likeahle youngsters registered as Freshmen. Now so much water has passed under the bridge, so much of the sands of time, well, suffice it to say, a year has passed. These selfsame youngsters have grown into straight-limLed, clear-eyed youths, and comely maidens with the fire of determination touched with the light of wit in their hearts. To put it in other words, words describing far better than those of my poverty-stricken vocabulary, they became Sophomores. These Sophomores — in a moment of weakness — selected for their president Dick Van- dekieft, but in spite of that handicap, they put on a dance even exceeding in splendor that magnificient ' Hawaiian Hop ' which they, as Freshmen, presented in the Gym the previous year. The Sophomores, besides being athletically and socially minded, were studious to the nth de gree — at least, several of their members made the Honor Roll. Many members of the class are looking forward, with the utmost of pleasure, to the com- ing year, because several of them — Miss Lang and the Dean to the contrary — will then be- come JuniorsI Of the ninety-one who started out as Freshmen, but sixty-three men and woman remain, scholastic hazards and financial difficulties having accounted for the remaining twenty-eight. If times continue as they are, we shall have to get thirty-two new members when we are Seniors, to have a class at all. All in all, speaking from the unbiased ( ? ) standpoint of one who was a Freshman in 1934, I should say that these Sophomores are a goodly lot!

The group in the upper left represents a part of the year s Union cabinet. Back row, left to right are Camerer, Boldt. Stillwell, and Maronn,— Dining Hall. Athletics. Em- ployment and Publications committee chairmen respectively. Front row, left to right, includes Reilly, Riley, and Young,— Organizations chairman, secretary, and President, in order. Jepsen, Strobel, Warren, and Jaeger,— Chairman of Building and Grounds, of Chapel. Social chairman, and Vice-president failed to put in appearance for the shot. At the upper right is " Tex " Pantermuehl, Student Union Store Manager during the past year. Below is a still shot of the Student Union Christmas Party in progress. Yearly the Union stages two such informal parties for all actors and actresses. The Union, whose officers are elected by popular ballot every spring, is responsible for the publication of the ELMS, runs the Cooperative Store, and sponsors the major studio activities. Every student has equal opportunity to take part in Union affairs, making the Union a truly representative body. The College is proud of the Union as one of its established institutions, and the Union is likewise proud of Elmhurst College as they grow greater hand in hand as each year reels by. [ 48 ] For a moment we thought we had taken a picture of the " Knights of the Round Table, but discovered that instead it is the Women ' s Union Cabinet, proudly displaying the new siK ' erware purchased this year a silver service set, which, by the vva ' , is locked in the safe every night. This shows how highly the girls value it. The girls in the picture are from left to right, Katherine Klick. Chapel chairman, Persis Wanen, President, Helen Romanofsky. Service chairman. Miss Erna Stech and Miss Marion Smith, Faculty Advisors, Evy Jo Hi- lander, Social chairman. Vera Limper, Vice-president, Eloise Strub, Secretary. Ruth Brieschke, Publicity chairman. La Verne. Point chairman, and Lois Colman, Athletic chairman. The group on the lower left represents a few of the more enterprising of the young women, who. during the summer, when time pressed hard and the heat became unbearable, labored and thus made money to pay for the new furniture which decorates the up-to-four P. M. no-man ' s land. " We give them credit. This room is really an excellent spot on the campus for bridges, teas, afternoon socials, and even smokers or philosophical lectures. Katherine Klick is the young lady who has condescended to doff her topper for the photographer. She was the announcer under the " big-top " show which the women put on this year— with the help of all the men in the school. Thank you, Katherinel Seriously, though, the circus was the best attended event in our studios this year; we were glad to welcome the public to our midst. The Women ' s Union also royally entertains the bachelors of E-C-S at the annual Coed Dance, a supreme production entirely in the hands of the women. This most active gro up in our colony annually sends Christmas cheer to the orphans and Thanks- giving baskets to the poor. Besides their regular monthly meetings, they sponsor a Little Sister Tea, a semi-formal Banquet in May each year, and interclass tournaments in various athletics. All we need say fo the Women ' s Union is — " What would we do without it? V IE r o s [ 49 :, EacK year the Elms Staff invariably puts off tKe bulk of tbe work to be done until the last minute. We won ' t cast any reflections, but tbis year ' s staff didn t fumisb any striking contrast to tradition. Prime among tbe dead weigbts were andekieft and Young who without exception each time there was work to be done were busy at something much less important Greatest amount of credit is due to Leona Buenger, the Editor who must have worried at least ten years off her life trying to line everything up for good publication. At the left above, Leona, the girl who worried so much, is snapped just as s e s rushing up the familiar steps to the main office of E-C-S. At the right above is Earl, one of the lads who loafed so much, posing on the same steps. Below is a cut of the EWs staff seemingly n the process oF considering some momentous question concerning the book. VVe know mey were only fooling, though, because the picture had to be taken and there was no -omentous question to be considered at that time. Left to right are Richard Vandekieft, Advertising Manager; Earl Young, Business Manager; Carl Stillwell, Circulation Manager; R. Hadl Waters Faculty Advisor; and Leona Buenger, Editor. [ 50 J Probably tbe most disorderly spot on tbe entire studio lot at any time is the desk in tbe Elms publication office. We straightened up for this picture, however, the one at the top ot the cut you know. To the left is a picture of Ted Krobne taking a picture. The picture he took of the person taking his picture never turned out for some reason. In the center is Maurice Brennen the staff artist. To the right is Marge Firmer, a great little picture taker in any man s language. Marge could be seen frantically dashing with a camera to some spot on the lot almost any day of the year. All in all the whole thing was a lot of fun, and we hope you enjoy this book as nu.cli as we enjoyed putting it together (What satirel) . Summed up though, its been loin and we want to avoid all this sentimental business of wishing the staff next year a lot ot luck and so on This article may have alarmed you to the point of exasperation because ol its uncon- ventionality, but wait until the end of the article, and the supreme quality and touch ot the whole thing will be self-explanatory. (Note: This article, with special permission of the editor, represents a collaboration of the efforts of Vandekieft and Young. That ought to explain it!) O IL IP O C II S (DCS IR T A IP lU IL O R R IE A T II O [51] If someKow or otKer we Iiad made you to heheve that E-C-S produced nothing but talking pictures, we want to correct ttiis impression before proceeding. E-C-S is famed for its musical extravaganzas, and for sucK colossal productions many talented vocal artists are re- quired. The male Kalf of this group of gifted vocalists is represented in picture on this page, tlie Men ' s Glee Club. In upper left, the reputed male quartette poses informally on the Chapel steps. Left to right. Stahlhut, Rasche. Schlundt, and Rockwell. These four have some arrangements that make all alike rave about quartette music. In upper right, the entire aggregation is caught by the photographer just before leaving an a tour. Nottrott. as usual, is out in front. He is an en- tertainer deluxe in a bus, whether on a football trip or a glee club trip. Below we glimpse the entire group in concert garb and assembly. When the E-C-S gleesters assemble in the chapel dressed in their white sweaters, all hasten to the scene, for it is as certain as the rising and the setting of the sun that some real music will result from their efforts. TKe Women s Glee Glut is one of tKe organizations on the lot in wliicK many stars have a profound interest, both men and women — as evidenced by tKe dejected countenances worn Ly some of the men during the Spring Tour of the Glut. In the top picture we have the entire group of what Goach Waters calls " The Canaries. " This year, under the capable direc- tion of Waldemar Hille, the Glee Glub has made three reels, the first consisting of sacred numbers, the second of both lively dances and sweet lullabies, and the third containing three charming folk songs. Between April 25 and April 29, these reels were shown in Garlinville, Highland, Columbia, Minonk, and Peotone, Illinois, and in St. Louis, Missouri, Special show- ings with the main reels were prepared by filmland ' s most noted soprano, Louise Zander, by the most outstanding pianist on the set. Director faille, and by the very talented violinist, Keawana Garman. Pictured below is the Women ' s Sextette, composed of Louise Zander, Ruth Wester- beck. Vera Limper, Jane Van Voorst, Glaudia Ruxton, and Margaret Olson, with Dorothy Kross, the accompanist at the piano. Unfortunately, because of a loss of one of the members of this group, its films were not available for showing except for two trial productions early in the year. Reports which filter back to us, speak well for the Glub ' s powers to entrance. The mem- bers of the Glee Club were persuaded to make a special radio appearance over WBBM when they sang for a large audience of fans. The special showing of the Glee Club s pro- duction in filmland ' s own theater, as usual, had a wide box-office appeal. [ 53] Ever since the origin oF the Chapel Choir in 1951, it has played an increasingly im- portant part in the chapel services. The voices picked for the Chapel Choir are anaong the best on the campus, and, under Hille ' s skillful leadership, they have been moulded into an organ-like unit of stirring beauty. Special credit must be given to the members of the choir for their fine spirit. These members contribute unstintingly of their time and talent, and receive no reward save the sense of gratification that every true artist experiences when he feels that he has performed well. The students of Elmhurst look forward to the Tuesday and Thursday appearances of the Choir. The solemn, black-robed figures would indeed be missed if. by any stroke of Fate, they should be eliminated from our Chapel programs. [ 54] It was Homecoming — tKe Kalf ! Our three hundred piece honor band was going through its formations, one after the other, thrilling the crowd — er — oh, I was thinking about Illinois University. But our band was out there, all six of the players. The seventeen people in the stands strained their ears — yes-yes — they did! They actually heard the band! Our band plays twice a year (and never practices), once at Homecoming and at the Women s Union circus. At the circus it is always one of the highlights, with its imitation of a German band. The fel- lows dress up in German clothes and play out of tune, and the people think that they do it intentionally. At Homecoming they head the parade, with a girl leading them so that some- one will notice them, and they make more noise than Baumy s Ford. The band is led by that genius " Sousa " Brennen. He has raised himself to new heights by taking four fellows and three guys from the dorm and making them into the resemblance of a band (just lo ok at the picture). In the middle picture, we see the boys that played in it. Brennen, Hahn, Malchow, Schuette, Hoffman, and Romanowski played and Beppler, Hille, and Gabler just came out to have their picture taken. In the other pictures we see the boys in their parade formations (they must have " stuffed ' the band for these pictures). All kidding aside, the band has been an integral part in our college program. It has put life into our football games and noise into the basketball games where it might have been lacking otherwise. Can we forget their German band imitations? NeinI [ 55] Once a montK tKe Goettie Verein holds sway in tKe Recital Hall. At eacK of tKese meetings, the German players of E-C-S enjoy a varied program skillfully planned by the Director E. H. Dummer. There is always group singing of the we -kno vn German folk- songs to open the meeting: then follows a special feature, after which the members indulge in German games and contests. The happy meetings come to a close with the serving of the inevitable chocolate milk and cookies. (Witness the picture above.) This year the special features, of which 1 spoke, ranged from a movie of the Oberammergau Passion Play to a " Major Bowes ' Amateur Night. " At the bottom, left, is a picture of the officers of the club. Left to right, they are Leona Buenger, vice-president, Doris Bay, treasurer, William Gabler. secretary, and Herbert Tet- zlaff, president. The other two snaps were taken at the joint Christmas celebration of the Le Cercle Francais and the Goethe Verein, which celeb ration was the climaxing feature of the year. [ 56] Some oF tKe stars were snapped off the set as tKey met for relaxation in one of the gatherings of Le Cercle Francais. La Petite Mademoiselle Zander has gathered about herself those who find relief from the ennui of life on the set by singing French songs, playing French games, and conversing in French. During the course of the year the stars have enjoN-ed themselves at a French card party (try playing bridge in French sometime), a progressive dinner, intormal talks by Profes- sor Stanger, one of the colony ' s most charming directors, and by Professor Bovee, imported from the studies at the University of Chicago. At Christmas, the stars met with the German enthusiasts of the film colony for a joint celebration. Members of the York High Company were guests at the April meeting. Mademoiselle Zander is assisted in her leadership of the group by the debonnaire Mon- sieur Baumrucker, and the charmontes Madesmoiselles Colman and Shafer, Monsieur Baum- rucker, as vice-president of the organization, was in charge of planning the entertainment for the members. He is seated to the left of Mademoiselle Zander. To Mademoiselle Zander ' s right we find Mademoiselle Shafer, who kept a record of the group s finances, and on the end i ' ; Mademoiselle Colman, the secretary of the organization. IL IE f IR C A IE C C A IL I IE S [57] The College Theater is one organization of which students, faculty, and townspeople alike are justly proud. The abundance of talent among the campus actors insures yearly several fine productions. During the acting season just past. Master Will Shakespeare ' s " Twelfth Night " was the highlight production. In the cut on the upper left, we find Jane Van Voorst, the president of the College Theater. Next to her is Ruth Warneke, the Business Manager of the organization. Seated on the ledge is Evelyn Troutman, Theater Secretary. Seated on the steps is the much famed portrayer of character parts, Paul Eisen, who is also the Program chairman. In the upper right we find Coach C. C. Arends who year after year produces the Col- lege Theater ' s super features. Coach Arends deserves much praise for the dramatic work of Elmhurst College Studios as he handles the aspiring Thespians with a masterful hand. Below we find Banas, Warren, and Hose at work in the scene shop, the work being supervised by Coach Arends. Here is turned out the necessary stage equipment for stage pro- ductions. [ 58] ElmKurst College Studios resumed debate activities under the direction ot Coach Waters in the fall of 1934 after some years of inactivity in this branch of production. Carl Stillwell Warren Mellin. and Earl Young bore the brunt of most of the contests in that year with debaters seemingly at a premium among the studio players. Stillwell and Young participated in that year in the first radio debates for E-C-S. Debate activity this year reached a new height when Young and Stillwell met the University of Hawaii in a debate on Hawaiian statehood on the E-C-S lot. These two also participated in some more radio debates from Chicago stations. This year, too, Martha Eisz- ner joined Eloise Ashby to fom-i a woman ' s debating team. In the above pictures, at the left, we find Young and Stillwell in a radio debate role. At the right are the men debaters of this season. In the front row. left to right, are Warren Mellin, Walter Sutton, and Ead Yonng. In back of them are Coach R. Hadly Waters and Carl Stillwell. Special credit is due Professor Waters for his work in this branch of E-C-S activity. ■ [ 59] i Every good studio has its publication, and E-C-S is no exception. I he studio paper is a weekly named the " Elm Bark " which puts in appearance in the respective mail boxes of the stars every Wednesday. Occasionally the stars become temperamental, which also is no exception, and criticize some issue, but all in all it presents studio activities in fine style. The " Elm Bark " is a four sheet paper with four colums to the page. In the upper left, we see one of the issues over Stillwell ' s shoulder, where it was left by one of the reporters propped against a typewriter for the editor ' s inspection. On over is pictured the group, that assumes the managerial worries, Eloise Strub, Business Manager, Louis Reichenbach, Adver- tising Manager, and Irvin Beppler, Circulation Manager. Below is a picture of the editorial staff with Editor Cad Stillwell supervising the day ' s activities. Ted Krohne edited the publication during the first semester of the school year after which Stillwell took over his duties. The " Elm Bark " rivals " Photoplay " and " Movie Stars " in every respect except one: the publication concerning the E-C-S stars is offered to the studio celebrities at a much lower rate, being sold on a yearly basis. This year marked the resumption of the printed paper. Each year the studio journal must improve to keep in pace with the increasing prowess ol the studio and the stars. E L M E) A li [ 60] This year for the first time in studio history, the long-awaited alumni magazine has hecome an actuality. The need lor such a publication has long been lelt and has long been expressed, but the realization came during the last ol the year of 1955 after the annual Homecoming. In the picture at the top we find the Alumni Editorial Board whose duty it is to super- vise the publication of the magazine by the students now in college. Reading Irom left to right are E. H. Tiedemann, President T. Lehmann, Rev. A. Dexheimer, and Dr. R. Priepke. Below is pictured the student publication committee in front of the building whose title the magazine bears, " The Voice of ' Old Main ' . " From left to right are Plocher, Loew, Zim- merman, Weltge. Jans, and editor, Stillwell. This committee does the editing and managing of the publication. Expressions from students and alumni alike indicate a widespread pleasurable reception of " The Voice of ' Old Main ' " in its first year of publication. Students and alumni alike also express the wish for a continuance of the work begun this year. , [ 61 ] Religion plays an important part in tKe lives of the stars, and in order to foster the religious interests that are existent at E-C-S, two organizations are maintained among the stu- dents, the Pre-Theological Club and the Student Christian Association. In the upper left appears the cabinet of the Pre-Theological Club. Professor Paul Lehmann, professor of Religion, is the faculty advisor for this group. From left to right are Walter Bloesch, ' ice-president. Professor Lehmann, George Kalbfleisch, President, and Le- Roy Setziol. Secretary-Treasurer. In the upper right, we find the executive cabinet of the Student Christian Association. Front row left to right are Evelyn Troutman, House chairman, Thelma Mielke, Vice-presi- dent, Eloise Ashby, Secretary. Back row left to right are Fred Denbeaux, Program chaimian, Harold Bruckner, Treasurer, Vernon Hoecker, President, Robert Baumann, Religious Life chairman, Roland Pantermuehl, Social Justice chairman, and Professor Lehmann who is also faculty advisor lor the S. C. A. In the lower picture, the photographer caught the Pre-Theological Club after a group meeting. These meetings are held for the express purpose of enhancing the rehgious life at E-C-S, while the Student Christian Association meetings are held for the broader purpose of discussing religious, social, and economic topics. [ 62] CAMIPLJS STAIRS L IhAIPIPY IE-C=§ IM(DUIR§ On Wednesday afternoons there almost al va) ' s occurs at tKe ElmKurst Studios what is commonly known in these parts as a " Social ' or maybe better a " Social Hour, but that doesn ' t work either, because they last two hours! Oh well, they ' re refreshing pauses, com- ing in the middle of the week as they do, during a hard week ' s work at the grind of produc- tion. Here, on Wednesday afternoons, the stars and extras take a little time off, forget the memorization of lines and cues and settle down for a little relaxation before finishing the re- mainder of the week s work. The activity during one of these periods usually consists of cards, dancing, and some- times refreshments, although the group above seems to picture more correctly a discussion of economic doctrines. Just as the coming attractions never reveal the true plot, so it is here. The bunch is just fooling a bit. They wanted to get away from the lights and cameras and sound gadgets, but along came the cameraman and wanted to take pictures of them, even during their idle hours. No wonder they resented it a little and sat stiff and straight to worry friend cameraman. [ 64 ] GAILILIEIRY OIF TlhlE GIRIEAT TKis year the Elms Staff called for a vote on the best dressed man and woman, the |b most humorous man and woman, and the most studious man and woman. Below are the choices of the student body. Claudia Ruxton and Irving Baumrucker were the campus options for the " stooge " roles. Claudia is always there with a crack, while " Baumy " can be counted on for a continuous line of clever chatter — fact that might make him a good continuity man. Vera Limper and Clarence Lomperis were thought the best to fill the library scenes beside great piles of huge books. Persis Warren was the " best bet " as the campus ' best dressed heroine, while Ead Young took honors as the best dressed male, a follow-up on that name, " Smoothe, " perhaps. We wonder how " C. C. A., " that master of casting, ever missed this group for a campus production. In the center, please note the huge pile of fan mail flood- ing the studio offices for a production featuring this group.

Pete is functioning in an unofficial capacity here, for Harold Hansen took over his duties as baseball director. A bunch of the football stars seem to be cutting up while the photographer tries desperately to get them in position for a formal picture. Jack Eiszner looks out of place, but he has a big smile for the birdie. In the lower left, Baumy and Van pose in front of the well-known Ford. Baumrucker gets some peculiar ideas, but the old car is among the best. It was a sight to behold the time he took the gids from house to house for the French club ' s progressive dinner. Van is laid up a little from football. " You can ' t keep a good man down, " but this time it took crutches to hold him up. Over, the gym looms up over a big snow bank piled up on the library walk by Jepsen ' s faithful laboring crew. Persis wasn ' t supposed to peek there, but there are always a few things that can ' t be helped. In the lower right. Art Hilander poses on his crutches. Lucky thing for the track outfit that he recovered in time to perform among Langhorst s thin-clads. [ 68] ON TIME LOT " The greatest manager that ever was " is what the gridders dahbed Munz; the lad cer- tainly was a hustler. He could carry less water in a given time on a hot day than any mana- ger that ever lived. To the right, the photographer caught part of the Homecoming crowd. Maronn seems interested in some thing other than the game at the moment. In the lower left, the cheedeaders pose in their white outfits. Left to right, Jaeger, Klick, Reichenbach, Ernst, and Lohans. Above, we catch a glimpse of them executing a fancy performance. Eyes followed the lad in the air rather than the fans following the cheer- leaders on the occasion of this one. Over in lower right, the faculty " sportsters " indulge in a heated game of volleyball. The professorial group tried vainly all year to get " Doc " Helmick over to one of their ath- letic contests, but he claimed that the most strenuous thing he did was to walk up town for cigars. We ' re glad to know they ' re not at home figuring out tests all the time anyway. t 69] IFCOTIBAILIL The 1935 football season was, in many respects, one of tKe most successful sea- sons in Elmhurst s athletic history. I he brand of foot- ball played and the magnih- cent team spirit shown were among the best ever seen at Elmhurst. After an easy opener with Morton which the Bucmen took 25-6, Coach Langhorst and his lads journeyed down to Peoria to rout the highly touted Bradley team 16-6. That victory alone would have made the season suc- cessful. The following week the St. Joe boys assaulted the Pirates stronghold only to be sent back to Indiana on the short end of a 13-0 count. The Homecoming, alas, was marred by one of the strang- est games ever to be played on the Elms gridiron. A weak Wheaton team, de- termined to avenge their rout at the hands of the Bucs in 1934, staved off defeat by no less than five desperate, though effective, goal line stands; and fought the vastly superior Pirates to a 0-0 standstill. The next week, the Iron- men, " consisting, in the main of thirteen bruised men who played practically every min.ute of every game, in- vaded Eureka and, despite previous sport forecasts, whipped a much heavier team 1 3-7. On the eve of the long-awaited North Central game, Baumrucker, heady and reliable Buc quarterback [ 70] fOOTIBAILIL contracted the flu and was lost for tKat battle wKicK tKe Bucs dropped 6-0 for tKeir first defeat. The regulars got a rest the following week and watched from the bench as the second and third teams romped over Mission House College 28-6. The climax of the season saw Elmhurst go down in not ignoble defeat to a pow- erful Lawrence College team from Appleton, W isconsin. Elmhurst led 13-0 until the fourth quarter. Then, as the early Autumn darkness shrouded the gridiron, and the battered Buc warriors, worn and weary from their long campaign, fought to pro- tect their lead, the cup of victory was snatched from their weakened grasp; and Lawrence strengthened by fresh replacements, pushed across three touchdowns to end a game packed, start to finish, with every element of surprise, elation and disap- pointment, that could be crammed into sixty minutes of football. The final score was 18-13. The moving finger pauses to pay tribute to Co-Cap- tains John Niensted and John Banas, who as inspirational directors had much to do with the success of the season; and to the fine coaching of Coach Ohver M. Langhorst and his invaluable assistant Coach Harro Hansen. The studio salutes its football heroes! [ 71 ] E ASI IETIBAILIL The Elmhurst Bucketeers started off the season as though they were the poten- tial conference champions. Coaches Langhorst and Han- sen whipped the team into mid-season form to win the -first tilt of the year from Au- rora. They followed this up with impressive victories over Wheaton and De Kalh. An unexplainable slump came over the team, and although the team handled themselves as pros they were not able to win another game. Willie Strand was the captain of the hardwood pounders this year and played heads-up hall all year even though he was too blind to see the basket. Two other blind men flanked Strand. Leuschke and Lam- barth are a little hard of see- ing too, and between the three of them we had the squintingest team in the con- ference. Ken (call me Goo- Goo) Robbins was outstand- ing throughout the season and climaxed the year by staying in a game without getting four fouls. Vic Ver- tovec who played a bang-up game in football continued his good work on the boards. Those massive hands of his broke up many an enemy at- tack and saved balls that might otherwise have been thrown out or in the other team ' s hands. IBASMETIBAILIL Hansen, Eiszner, Kniker, Stoerker, and Hilander all sKowed good form while playing in there as reserves. We may note that this is the first year that the Pirates ever had reserves capable to give the first string a run For their money. The basketball sea- son must be looked on as a success, for we did win more games this year than we did for some time. The spirit was a lot better too, not only of the players but also of the crowd. Plenty of noise by the band, cheerleaders, and Mrs. Pete made the boys play a little better. Reminiscing through the season we can see Robbins standing in the middle of the floor, he aims, and swish — ' two points; Leuschke walks off the floor after his fourth foul saying, 1 never touched him! : Vertovec, red as a beet, playing the whole game; Willie Strand shoot- ing at the score board think- ing it ' s the basket; Lambarth playing his usual hard game; and Hansen and Eiszner dropping some long shots, (between halves). Most of the boys will be back next ear, so look (or a great ball club then. [ ?3] IbASIEIBAILL Before the start of the sea- son ' s baseball production, it was the general opinion that Coach Harro Hansen was going to have his hanJs full producing a rounded team from a roster of players in- cluding but four regulars of previous productions: Rob- bins, Captain Stoerker, Bloesch, and Lambarth. The season had hardly started, however, when first showings indicated that the advance dope had been in error. The prevues drew a large measure of applause from the early season fans. Meeting an experienced De Kalb nine in the initial dia- mond battle, the Hansen men showed up well, losing a close one 7 to 6. A week s more direction from director Hansen turned the trick in the second conference com- bat with Wheaton, the Pir- ates winning 7 to 6. Indica- tions are, at the time of the Elm ' s going to press, that Elmhurst will line up favor- ably with the best of them when the time comes for the critics to discuss the season in its entirety. Of great im- portance is the fact that many of this year ' s extras show promise of developing into finished players in the season to come I The various games of the [ 74] IBASEIBAILIL season witnessed consider- able sKiFting of players from one part to another, making it difficult to present any one set of nine that might he termed regulars. This also gives indication of a very successful round next year. Generally the infield was composed of Vertovec, Rob- hins, Bloesch, and Stoerker. Lambarth, for the greater part of the season, had the pitching lead with Grune- wald backstopping. Players in the outer gardens in- cluded: Kniker, Stoerker, Happel, Bruckner and Jans. Rathmann and Luehmann are the most promising of the season s understudies. Not to be forgotten is long, lean, and lanky " Andy " Mellin, the team manager who stands a good three bats high. Although it is too early to attempt to give an accurate predicition of just how the E-C-S baseball production will draw at the box-office, indications have it that the local stars will meet with a reasonable measure of suc- cess in games won and lost. Commendation is due to both the cast and director Hansen for turning out a production that both local rooters and opposition have been forced to class among the best. This year Captain SKeaKan ' s thin-clad harriers— the hoys who run, and run, and run, and, well you know— run— experienced an off year and, consequently, broke very few wodd s records in anything except running to the " Ha.sh House. " However, the achievements of the team must not be minimized, because cross-country is a very gruelling sport and takes a bet- ter man than you and 1, Gunga Din. to run it. This year ' s team was composed of Messrs. Sheahan, Platz, Reichenbach, Camerer. Lauer, and Malchow. All of these men subsequently reported for track, and therefore, were in fine shape due to the arduous training of the cross-country season. The harriers, this season, were handicapped because they had no coach; however, Irv- ing Camerer and Captain Sheahan performed notably in this capacity, and to them must go all credit for the untiring efforts they expended in this direction. [ 76] Start at the top, leit and read across . . . Bill Meskan wKips out a long one . . . Vandekieft clears tKe bar . . . Ernie P o t y e n, FresKman vaulter, soars in the blue . . .

Plocher, ini- mitable manager, poses with one of his friends ... A few of the boys practice a start . . . Nelson of Armour breaks the tape . . . Van poses for a record-breaking toss. Coach Langhorst has high hopes for the most successful track season in seven years. The Elms tracksters boast a well balanced team led by Captain Camerer the two- mfle record holder. Such vet- erans as Baumrucker in the 880 and 440, Jaeger in the broad jump, Hilander in the hurdles and high jump, Munz in the 880, Vande- kieft in the high jump, shot, and discus, and Robbins in the discus are expected to shoulder a considerable part of the responsibilities of point getting; aided and abetted, of course, by such Frosh stars as: Potyen, Vernon, Not- trott, Royer, and Platz. [ 77] Tennis, altKougK a minor sport at E-C-S is ex- tremely popular, and tKe studio teams are lacking in no respect. In upper left. Captain Hansen waits for a tricky one; upper right. Coach Arends pauses for a snap- shot; below Helling, Hansen, Eisen, Hoecker and Bauman failed to appear. Lower left, Hansen and Hoecker wait for the oppon- ents serve. Lower right, Nien- sted and Eisen caught during practice . J o h n n y doesn t want that proverbial " birdie to put anything over on him. A severe loss was felt this year in Bill Strand, who hit the scholastic toboggan and thus was unable to compete in the studio matches. In spite of this handicap, the Arendsmen made very fav- orable showing in this sea- son ' s, matches. Captain Han- sen making an excellent come-back after years of ab- sence. Coach Arends can always be counted on to pro- duce a team that consistently maintains a showing above the half-way mark.

The thoroughly planned and extensive Intramural pro- gram of E-C-S is an essen- tial part of studio life. The stars do their best work in the productions only when they have some time to play. th eir e I s u r e. women stars, as well as tKe men, keep themselves fit by participating in sports. TKeir interest centers in basketball, which sport occupies their time throughout the winter months. In the upper left of the page is a group learning the fundamentals of the sport. The proud stars in the next three pictures are the champions of the annual basketball tournament. This group of upperclass girls proved that experience is a valuable asset to an athlete as well as to an actress. They are, from left to right, in the first picture, Persis Warren, Laura Press, Leona Buenger, Marge Firmer, Clara Jameson, Evy Jo Hi- lander, manager, Marion Smith, coach, Margaret Ri- ley, captain, Lois Colman, and Louise Zander. Tennis is the chief attrac- tion in the Spring. In the third row right is a group trying out for the team to represent the E 1 m h u r s t colony against other colonies. Below them are Doris Bay and Katherine Klick after a play-off match in the tourna- ment. To the left of them are a group of hockey en- thusiasts, a sport which at- tracts a lot of attention in the Fall. Marion Smith, who appears below them, directs this sport, too. Baseball and track occupy the time of those who do not spend their time on the ten- nis courts in the Spring. In the two lower pictures are groups of first and second year members of E-C-S par- ticipating in these sports. [80] STARS OIF YIESTIERYIEAR E-C-S is prouJ to present flasK-backs of former favorites. These shots were taken on the Eden Seminary lot. On the upper left we see Herb Wintermeyer and Ed Hoeter, rest- ing after a brisk climb to the top of Eden ' s " flaming " tower. Herb retired from active par- ticipation with the E-C-S in 1934, and Ed transfered to the Missouri studio in 19 5. At the center top we have (left to right) Paul Bode. Ernst Nussman, William Ruhl Harry Schairbaum. George Fuchs, Ray Frankenfeld. Robert Baldauf. and Ernst Press, all of whom left the E-C-S between ' 51 and ' 53 and have entered the ministry. The fellows at the top right are Verne Warner ( ' 54) and Chet Uthlaut ( ' 55) enjoy- ing an after-dinner smoke in front of the Eden dormitory. The three men below top center are Rudy Allrich, Red Steve, and Al Siemsen. all stars who did not renew their contract at E-C-S after 1955. The two insets below them are (left) Roy Eilers, the president of the 1955 cast, and Al Behle a former player in athletic productions. At the lower left the Eden quartet of 1955, Ed Riske, Heinrich Rest, Paul Bode, and Ed Wahl were snapped as they left on a tour. One of the most illustrious alumni. Dr. S. D. Press, is held high and dry after an annual water contest between the affianced and non-affianced Edenites. [82] TKe Homecoming this year was undoubtedly tKe best one ever bad on tbe E-C-S lot. Above are a few of tbe bigbligbts. (Upper left) Tbe Women ' s Union float. Tbe judges took one look at our coeds, dressed to represent all tbe out-door sports, and awarded tbem first prize . . .

(Lower left) Tbe Soph float, second prize winner bung Wbeaton in effigy. This was one of those original masterpieces. Homecoming was not only a parade, however. First tbe alumni came back with all their " remember back when — Then Saturday we had that football game with Wbeaton (just when we had forgtten it), and they tied us 0-0. Our boys tore through for some two hundred yards to Wheaton ' s minus seven, but that goal line was mighty elusive. Perhaps our boys had enjoyed themselves too much at tbe bonfire tbe night before. Homecoming finished off with a dance that sent afl tbe alumni away pledging to return next year. [ 83 ] MOYIIIE IDOIUIBILIES Once, they say, " Stars Fell on Alabama, " and it ' s a certainty a multitude of stars fell on tKe E-C-S lot. Not just this ) ear— they alw aj-s do. Above, however, we have this year s crop ol movie doubles. In the top row left to right: first, is Julia W ' eigel, a take-off on Kay Francis; next, Doro- thea Ernst simply forced us to pick her as the E-C-S Kathryn Hepburn because of the way she wears her hair; extreme right. Marge Firmer just snapped sometime, for anytime she looks like Harlow. The lower row finds Armin Munz striking a pose and looking like Gene Raymond; the blonde wavy hair secured him his title. Next. Eldred Strobel, rough and ready as Rich- ard Dix in " Cimarron. " Strobel is rough and ready on the truck, though. Center, Barney Franzen, arms folded, has the air of Stuart Erwin about him; the air is not neady so im- portant as the facial contours, however. Next, Frank Vertovec caught in profile pose re- minds us of a comical fellow named Durante. Edward Schlundt indeed furnishes us wath a serious problem. We didn ' t know whether to call him Charles Farrell because of his smile or Bing Crosby for his crooning, so we 11 leave the whole thing up to you for final decision. We ' ll wager that there are several movie czars who would like to contract these people to fill in when their own Hollywood celebrities failed to show up. [84] II r cor ciLusiior We could think of no more proper a conclusion to tKis master production than a brief review of some of the highlights of the year. Therefore, we present to you: At the top, both Glee Clubs . . . Each of these groups were snapped just before they made an extensive tour. In the upper right is the sport of the tot— Director Tommy, who shows us how to dress for the Invitational Track meet. And is he popular! Below the Men ' s Glee Club, is a glimpse of the crowd we entertained on our lot when we welcomed our fans into our midst. We called it High School Day and put on a big program for all the aspiring candidates for contracts next year. In the lower left we present the impressive opening service of the Chapel ' — a proces- sional of the gowned faculty and Seniors of E-C-S. We believe you will recognize the next snap. But the following one is our prize picture — our ever-alert cameraman caught Hille the day he came down from the infirmary. Two weeks previous to this, our maestro Hille had come back to our colony from a Glee Club tour with many praises for the excellent perform- ance of his cast: but it took two weeks to discover that Hille had also brought back some- thing else — the mumps! It wasn ' t long, however, before he was back in his official capacity again. (Just ask his music classes!) And now that you have seen our show (and we ' re sure you liked it!), keep your stubs as souvenirs, folks, and anytime you care to see this gigantic, colossal, stupendous, (well, you know) show again, just release your own reels (look at your book, you dummy!). We have done our little bit with punch, splicing, stunt, stulf, superimposure, and teasers of our entire college life to make this production a HIT! And with that the editor walks off, leaving you to enjoy (???) " Elmhurst on Parade.
