We hope in years to come you will find many happy in our quick survey of . . . Campus Faculty Classes Activities Athletics Advertisers ! i; I K M.

Irion Hall, and " Old Hall. " There is something t ' pical in how- new light, new information, new angles on old l)eliefs and ])reju- dices transform each one of us in our years at Elmhurst. The Campus One ol ' the assets all will I ' ciiiciiilicr when they think hack to days at Elmhurst — an idyllic campus. Put in another way, ha|)i)y friendships . . . u ' ay lunch- hdur chats . . . last niiiuilc cramming . . . winter snowliallinu ' : tho e are the pleasant memories built beneath the friendly shadow of " ' Ohl .Main " » » S ' « First to enjoy the re-birth of " Old Hall, " the stu- dent ])ody of 194:0 had the advantage of two excellent new classrooms and several activities quarters. Still, as all who have visited the Wichmans in their u])- stairs apartment know, rich traditions give the hall full claim to its name. Old Hall " » » 9 « « The Gymnasium The formal grandeur oi ' the familiar gymnasium in this striking photographic masterpiece leads rather naturally to reminiscence on some of the major social events held there this year. There were tlie unfor- gettahle (A)llege Theater performances, the Sym- phony, the I ' l ' om, and the class socials. Before we leave. ( nnmieiieeinenl will he the event of the year I ' di ' ihe auditoi ' i ' .im. It would he hard to forget, though, how daylight and normalcy affect the same gymnasium. Classes, games, hard woi ' k at decoration, and — o-o-o-oh I — examinations. J low could we forget? » » 10 « « South Hall It ' s easy to see it took some conniving to get this picture ready for the photographer ! None of the men at Irion Hall ? We have to be shown ! Whether or not it would ever be possible to find all of the eighty-eight residents in at one time like this, South Hall is, nevertheless, the place they call their home for nine months out of the year. While democratic self-government keeps things in order, a passing amount of studying, a liberal sprinkling of horse-play, and an abundance of wholesome comrade- ship proceed l)ehind these walls. Here is the heart of the eamiiiis. Perhaps you ' ve iicvei ' looked at it from that angle, hut with the eeiitruni of musical activities, the women ' s dormi- tory, and, more significant than all, the chapel here, wliat else could really be said? All Elmhurst gravi- tates about Irion Hall. Through the familiar doorway Herh Sadler is tending for Betty Koenig, twice a week we pass for our share in campus chapel observances. Though the growth of the student body made a divided chapel necessary this year, more regular attendance, you remember, was sought. »» I ' d «« 1 I ii[i;ty-xixe (listiiiguisluMl members of the Elmhurst I faculty do their bit toward spreading the light of wisdom throughout the student l)ody. The student is offered a chance to absorb a large fund of knoAvledge as presented to him l)y jdiilosopher, sociologist, economist, physical and social scientist, and linguist. It is fair to say that the Elmhurst enrollee is subjected to all the learning for M ' hich he has a capacity plus a reasonable margin for error. Shedding the Light ' In Th ij Ligli t We See Light " Philosophy Religion Education Philosophy steps out of the armchair and religion be- comes a militant factor in the respective departments at Elmhm-st. Tjnder the effective tutelage of Professors P. L. Lehmann and H. J. Sander the theoretical snbjects take a turn toward the practical. Students are encouraged to consider that religion and ]ihiloso])hv liave emerged from mothljalls and presented themselves as vital issues in ever v day life. With the resigiiation of Dr. Clare. Dean Gene- vieve Standi takes over the Education de])artment " in toto ' ' thereby becoming one of the liveliest mend)ers ol ' tlie facultv. Dr. Paul Lehmann Dr. Herman Sander Genevieve St. udt D.A.VID LEMOiV » » 16 « « Chester O.

Egner finds liimsplf with Daniel Scheinman of the University of Chicago as liis capal3le assistant in the Economics department. A new course, " Labor Problems, " is offered and five courses are added to next year ' s curriculum. A turnover in the Sociology de- ])artment at the beginning of the second semester replaces Dr. Clare with Dr. Henssler of Marburg, Paris, Eondon. and assorted scholastic centers. The Misses Stech and Klein make a mighty attempt to keep pace with the new courses by purchasing additional books and periodicals. » » 17 « « Science Armed with test tube and slide lule, the physical scientists of Elmhurst set out to track down bacterium, molecule, and light wave This year, increased en- rollment necessitates correspond- ing additions in jiersonnel. Dr. Harvey De Bruine Dr. AVinston Hole Geraldine JIoon Dr. Homer Helmick George Sharp Mart Margaret Handel In Laboratory Miss Moon rejilaces fr. Sharp in the Biology (h partmont and the latter emigrates to the Chem- istry de])artment for full-time work with Dr. Helmick. Miss Handel arrives to assist Dr. Hole in his mathematics courses and Doc transfers his attention to physics classes. New equipment is placed at the disposal of chem- ist, physicist, and biologist. A com|)ressed air system is a wel- come addition to the dejiartments and running distilled water is even more gratefully accepted. Dr. De Bruine contributes his share by constructing a tissue il- luminator for histolojjv students. Social Science Eesiiseitating the past and ex- plaining the present are the com- bined functions of historian and political scientist. This year ' s personnel works with might and main to dispel contem])orary ig- norance. Dr. Pearl Robertson Dr. Paul Crusius Richard Wiese Dr. Henry Eller In Lecture Hall The usual throng of freshmen are placed at the mercy of Dr. Crusius and assistant, Wiese. A noble effort is made to keep these students up on what has gone before and what is yet to come. Dr. Eobertson labors long and hard to tell what makes the politi- cal machine go and wliat can be done about it. State and munici- pal affairs are unraveled in no uncertain terms. Dr. Eller under- takes the difficult task of jiointing out the correlation between an- cient cultures and our own. In short, Social Science supervisors slave. » » 19 « « English Of nil those arts in irhicli the wise excel. Nature ' s chief masterpiece is ivriting ivell. —Sheffield Ye Olde and 3 ' e new English are ex- pressed and explained with eqi;al facility by Professors Arends, Breitenbaeh, Carl- son, and Belgum. These English ex])o- nents are p a r t i c ii 1 a r 1 y active on the campus. When he is not concocting new and different assignments, Professor Bel- gum douliles as Freshman Class Adviser. Professor Carlson has the distinction of being a lirst-class faculty rooter at all com])etitive combats as well as one of the most popular after-dinner speakers on the campus. Professor Breitenbaeh is the leading grammar-groomer on the faculty and C. C. Arends has a finger in all of the colleo ' e dramatic ventures. Speal ' the speeeli.

Dr. Dmnmer condncts the German department with his usual efficiency. He is ahly assisted by Dr. Bichter, one of the important additions to the faculty this year. The aims of the department are to pro- vide cultural training as well as a practical knowledge of German. Professor Wagoner ' s work in the French depart- ment has extended its scope to include a number of litera- ture courses for the year. He and Professor Stanger divide between them the introductory courses in French. Growth in enrollment can be credited to their combined ]iersonalities. Important Incidentals The only thing ' more difficult tlian finding a time when the capable oi ice stafl " is not Ijusy is finding an occasion when the presiding secretaries. Miss Lang and Mrs. Shirneker, would be unwilling to oblige a student request. Througli the constant, harrassing trials in ])leasing administration, fac- ulty, students, and others, the office workers man- age to keep their pleasant geniality. Efficiency Artistry One of the most interesting and valuable contributions to the campus that proceeds from the general office is the product of i [iss Lang ' s genius. E. I. L ]n-ograms were one of the finest possible samples of her mime- ographist ' s art. Miss Lang, who is always willing to teach students the secrets of the fascinating process, is also responsible for many of the spe- cial chapel programs. Theater ])ro- grams, olficial aiinouiicements. and organizational publicity.

Some of the more familiar ones, their headquarters ranging from boiler house to business office to Commons counter are really unforgettable. We want to let " Wicky " and C arl know, too, their continual efforts at keeping the campus clean and or- derly Avill not ])ass unrememhered.

For four years they dominated all the other classes in the honor roll. In athletic ])rowess no other class could equal them. The Elmhurst spirit of class solidarity and cooperation was somewhat slow in developing l:)ut blossomed forth in full strength dur- ing the last two years when the class assumed full campus leadership. HoAvever, romantically the class sets a new, and heretofore unheard of precedent at Elmhurst. since no two members of the class have pledged fidelity toward each other. »» 36 «« EOY F. ALBEESWEETH St. Louis, Missouri Eoy spent only his last two years at Elmhurst, but the speed and thoroughness with which he orientated himself is shown by his record: during that time he held offices in both the S.

Bill Simpson, a con- temporary mystic, spoke at an assembly and later at several group meetings. His anti-feministic views stimulated much debate on the campus. Later in the year Dr. Eichter dealt effectively with " The Cultural Crisis in Germany. " Miss Cardwell, a Chicago Ijarrister, explained seventy-two alien and sedition laws pending in Congress. Dr. Paul Lehmann chose " The Christian Ethic " as his subject and Jerome Davis discussed the European Political situation. O-ut of such a series of meetings grew discussions in open cabinet meetings. Talk turned to problems of the Christian community. Christian strategy, and of campus re- lationships. Supplementary activities of the group con- sisted of a Devotional Ke- treat at the LTniversity of Chicago in jSTovember; a Peace Institute conducted by meml ers of the college faculty ; circulation of de- votional material ; and em- bargo of goods to belliger- ents. » » 69 « « Upper left: Dr. Hole, Speaker.

The meetings were divided between purely business sessions and programs presenting outstanding professional athletic figures and movies. One of the chief goals was the spreading of more information concerning the Elmhurst athletic program among prospective high school students. This program found a very enthusiastic response among the alumni members who gave it their full cooperation. » » 72 « « Public Relations Department Both because it is coiiductecl primarily by a student with student help and because it aflEects the student body so, the bulk of the so- called " publicity " affairs rightly belong among Activities.

Together, working chietiy through local and out-of-town newspapers, they sought to give Elmhurst prestige and reputation so important to alumni and so attractive to new students. Headlining the best and most significant activi- ties and achievements of the campus community has been the Public Kela- tions Department policy. Coopera- tion being an essential in the sup- port of such a policy, the depart- ment set the precedent by cooperat- ing to bring success to campus organ- ization ventures, tours, and ideals. The glee clubs called their extensive publicity successful. Announcing the E. I. I. was in the hands of the department. Who knows?

CAPTAIN ROSBACK COMMENTS : " After a slow start, in which the new men carried the burden of our attack, the team finally settled down to playing some real football. Team spirit was wonderful, despite the meager record — which can be attributed to lack of ex- perience and absence of good downfield blocking.

The Pirates had a conspicuously weak slate of three victories and fourteen defeats. Heine ' s baptism into Little 19 cage war- fare would have been a howling success had his charges been more adept at finding the rim during the battle. Experience — so vital to every winning team — was not too ])revalent in the Elmhurst camp. Heine was blest with three holdovers from the regular 1938-39 troupe at the season ' s onset, although one of these, the rough, but cap- able Art Dreusicke, was lost at mid-term. As the season wore on, the Pirate mentor sta- tioned Jack Van Voorst, rangy sophomore, opposite the veteran Herman Schoettle, whose bril- liant play ranks him as one of the school ' s cage-greats. Henry Hakewill, captain elect for next year, manned the pivot spot in capable fashion, establishing a new Elmhurst individual scor- ing record. The guard berths were taken care of by Art Dreusicke and Bob Biermann during the first semester, with Dick Easche taking over Dreu- sicke ' s chores during the latter half of the season .

In the other conflicts the local aggregation was in the ])all game until the gun sounded. Prospects are bright for the coming winter. Only Schdcttle will be lost from the flrst- string live and in addition to the rdurning lettermen. Heine has two or three boys who have develo])ed to such a ])oint as seriously to threaten regulars for a varsity berth. ■: » » 84 « « Co-captains Roy Alberswerth and Edward Dalhaus Baseball TT 7 " iTH a conference title to defend and a new coach to direct ' them, Elmhixrst baseball hopefuls began practices early in the year. Under the tutelage of Elmhurst ' s major league rookie, Orval Grove, the mound staff was composed of Dick Easche, a curve ball artist; Edward Dalhaus, a converted outfielder; a Fresh- man southpaw, Sam Amato and Fred Traut who donned the back- stopping regalia. The infield was composed of the veteran Bob Tiemann at first base, little Erv Bosworth at the keystone sack, Glenn Pfeil at short, and Walt Westermann at the hot corner. This was ]n ' obal)ly the fastest and best defensive infield in the history of the school. The injurj jinx soon put an end to this. Pfeil was benched with a sore arm, Bosworth was laid up early in the season with a chipped bone in his ankle and Eosbaek, wlio took Pfeil ' s place, suffered a serious facial cut. These injuries made a regular out of utility infielder Mel Abele. The outfield was patrolled l)y the co-captains Eoy Alberswerth and Dalhaus in left and center field respectively. Eight field saw many different faces, including Bill Kruse, Lloyd Pfautsch, Merlin Deppert, and Harry Willman. » » 85 « « Diamond Data HPhe seventeeii-game schedule which the Pirates im- dertook is the heaviest schedule in Elmhurst base- ball history. It included two doubleheaders. The team which took the field in the opening game against Wheaton was small, fast, smart, and almost perfect defensively. Pitching was above average and the team for the first time in many years boasted of a catcher with a really strong arm. This left tlie team with only one defect, hitting. Although there were several .300 batters on the team, there were few distance hitters. This meant victory or defeat would depend on the timeliness of the hitting.

FTER a slow start that was marked by a lack of productivity around home plate, the team roared hack in defense of their title with a twin-bill triumph over Eureka. This put them well on the way towards another con- ference title. However, in non-league competition the Bucs had more diffi- culty solving the puzzling deliveries of rival moundsmen and dropped several close encounters. They dropped the season opener by the close margin of 4 to 3 although they could muster only two hits. This loss was avenged on May 4 when Easche pitched the Bucs to a 5 to 3 decision over Wheaton as a rousing farewell to Fred Walker, departing coach of the Crusaders. In the only conference loss, DeKalb had to squelch a ninth inning rally in a driving snowstorm to gain the edge over Pete ' s charges. In two other early season games, the Pirates defeated Armour G to 3 and Aurora 17-10 in a slugfest. As the season progressed the pitching improved but the patched up infield collapsed defensively and the brilliant two hit hurling performance of Sam Amato went for naught as Augustana scored four unearned runs for a 4 to 3 victory. Concordia avenged itself for track and tennis losses by trimming the Bucs twice by scores of 5 to 3 aird 11 to 10. Thus, what was to be an out- standing season became more and more another average season. Batter Up! »» 87 «« Track In his first season as head track mentor Coach Heine worked Avonders with a disappointingly small but hard working squad. With runners doubling up on events the Pirates were able to eke out two victories over Wheaton and Concordia. These were overshadowed, however, b} ' individual performances. Walter IJauh established a new college record when he tossed the javelin 171 feet in the Beloit Eelays. Captain Bohle showed the gTeatest improvement as he ran the 100 yard dash consistently in :10.1 and later in the season turned in exceptional quarter miles. Cash, Schleinzer, and Schierhorn proved their value through their ver- satility.

" RETROSPECT With twenty-two colleges providing the finest competition to be found in the mid- dle west, Walter Eauh ' s third place in the javelin took on special significance.
