PRESENTATION THE ELMS of 1941 Librarians Martha Klein and Erna Stech are recipients of the first copy of this year ' s annual, dedicated to their work by Editor John Hein and The Staff.

Advisor ) DEDICATION fldventure " Life " Biography THE WORLD AT OUR DOORSTEP fi book on travel is always an intriguing one. Far off China, THE LIBRARY the islands of the Pacific, the wilds of Africa, the far corners of our own America inspire the dreams of young and old. But " when our student days are over, " the books, the dreams of far lands and distant scenes, will fade as each of us . returns in memory to the campus and to the library — so much a center of all campus life. Then it will be a scene like the familiar one above that returns hauntingly with its cargo of memories. Then each of us will say, " Remember when I . . . " . . . hurried up those same library steps to " bone " for an exam! . . . lounged between classes on a lazy spring day! . . . held a rendezvous with the only one in the world! . . . went to Glmhurst College! From Pages of History Ilo matter how far travels take the alumnus, once the shadow of " Old main " has rested upon him, it remains as a guide on the way through life. " Old EQain " is there with its classes, its lectures, its gay social life. The inspirations left by pro- fessors, the friendships won among students, will remain throughout life. Glmhurst College has a reputation centering around the tradition of stately " Old main. " It is a reputation for alumni who make good — men and women well guided on the pathways of life. THE CHAPEL The beauty of this typical campus scene is as much in what it repre- sents as in what it actually portrays. The camera ' s critical eye has caught Glmhurst ' s combination of nature ' s incomparable splendor, friendship ' s happy gaiety, and the individual ' s inspiration, product of the Christian emphasis which pervades the campus. The scene, of course, is the Chapel at 10:10. Friends are discussing — well, per- haps a meditation of Dean George Kalbfleisch. Perhaps they are pondering the words of Professor ITlenzel. Or was it one of the guest speakers from the local churches who inspired their comments? They may be talking over the leadership efforts of a fellow student or the contributions of the Chapel Choir. lUhatever the topic, whatever the reaction, it is the outgrowth of Glmhurst ' s aim to include spiritual stimulation as an integral part of the educational program. In Paths of Beauty SOUTH HALL This is " home. " ITlanY a student visiting parents during a school year holiday embarrassingly finds himself remarking, " I have to be going back ' home ' soon. " Glmhurst truly becomes a second home before many months of residence on the friendly campus. This year three dormitories came to be " home " to the resident stu- dents on the campus. Irion Hall — to locate, ask a man — houses the coeds, South Hall, above, is where the men hang their hats, and Senior Lodge is an " overflow " dormitory for selected men of the senior class. These social calls on the campus " homes " of out-of-town students would be incomplete without a stop at the private homes where, ac- cording to an estimate by Dean Genevieve Staudt, nine or ten of the students, mostly coeds, exchange services for room and board. Illany of these students find real homes with Glmhurst families. Homeward Bound 9 Bachelor s Ease ROOM 318 Ted rriauch fllichigan City, Indiana Ted Braun UJebster Groves, EQissouri Model Tenants Paul Kehle fllonroe, UJisconsin Herbert Fritzsche Forest Park, Illinois ROOM 312 Honorable Mention UJinners of the 1941 GLfllS contest for the best furnished room in South Hall, according to a student ' s point of view, here show a typical example of bachelor house- keeping at its greatest efficiency. The inspection tour before the decision of the " model room " revealed that a number of residents of the men ' s dormitory this year had spent considerable time in making livable quarters of their two rooms. Room 318, below, is a sample of what a few boxes and fish poles, hand-me-down furniture, and rugs and other contributions from home can do to make an other- wise bare dormitory room a bit of home. Gven this year ' s group of freshmen, according to proctors Kenneth Taylor and Robert Ilolte, have been ambitious in decorating their rooms during the year. The dormitory council, with the aid of the administration, set the pace in decoration and up-keep this year, however. According to dormitory president Harold Kamenz, the first floor reception room underwent a complete renovation early in the year. Paint and the new drapes accom- plished the miracle. SOUTH HALL 10 Paraphrasing the popular song (now you can guess when this COPY was written), " If practice makes perfect, let ' s sweep this roorn again, let ' s dust that desk again; we can ' t stand this dirt here now. " UJell, it may not have been a theme song for the coeds at Irion Hall this year, but it seemed so to the privileged male who inspected the girls ' choice of a " model room. " The weeks of experimentation with the comparatively luxurious furniture provided gives a real oppor- tunity to practice on those invaluable home-making arts. The room below is typical of those housing the thirty-two coeds in Irion Hall. fl single snap of the camera shutter misses most of the real life at Irion Hall. Regular housekeeping under Gleaner ' s competent eye is only one part of " the life. " There are the dreary " campused " days. There are the " spreads " engineered outside the watchful scrutiny of Dean Staudt. There are those long talks with the outside world from the cloister of the phone booth. The afternoon siestas, the midniaht oil— all combined soell " home " for Glmhurst ' s coeds. If Practice Makes Perfect . . ROOM 207 IRION HALL rriagdalene Berger, Venedy, Illinois 11 Pioneers at SENIOR LODGE Standing well at the top of the list of the year ' s highlights, as far as some of the seniors were concerned, was the grand exodus of nine members of the class of ' 41 from South Hall to establish residence in the old frame house standing on the newly ac- quired property adjacent to the south-east corner of the campus. Here the men moved whatever furniture they possessed and with the addition of several donations from interested town ' s folk arranged comfortable living quarters. Cooperation was the key-note of this pioneering enterprise. Left to Right — on stairs, Robert Tiemann, Harold Fisher, Richard Rasche, and Robert Herrmann.

Seated, UJilham Lane and riorman Roberts. 12 Because not even the best of students exist on a mere bit of THE COMMONS mental nourishment, three times a day there is a trek through these doors to satisfy the physical wants. Properly, the scholas- tic day begins and ends in this building. From the first person to enter for breakfast until the last straggler arrives for the evening meal, this is one of the most popular buildings on the campus. It is truly journey ' s end for the cares of the day, for our travel through the campus, and for the mountains of food consumed when students line up here at the Commons. 13 THE MYSTERIES OF KNOWLEDGE Ps we find them patiently un- earthing clues to the mysteiy of learning, diligently working out solutions, we present our Sher- locks and their Watsons . . . o wart . ° JJ " ' n VJVVCI ' ate ® en ° ' Ae " re s i P rt ie ® itv at© op ' .o at® o so o Administration Library Religion and Philosophy Fine Arts Languages Social Sciences natural Sciences Staff UJorkers PRGSiDenT TimoTHY LtHmfinn, d.d., ll.d. ADMINISTRATION 1871 This year the administration is observing the seventieth anni- versary of GImhurst ' s founding. It is the anniversary of an idea — that Christian principles could, and must, become a vital part of higher education. It is an anniversary of years of successful execution of that idea with the support of the Gvangelical — now Gvangelical and Reformed — church. 1941 Leading The Way . . . Guide and director for the entire college family on its quest for clues to the mysteries of learning — Dr. Timothy Lehmann, D.D., LL.D., President since 1928. Under Dr. Leh- mann ' s leadership Glmhurst ' s enrollment has grown rapidly. Its staff has been enlarged. Full accredition has been won. Progress has become a synonym for " Glmhurst " under President Lehmann ' s vigorous, capable lead- ership. Setting the Pace THE BOARD Left to right — standing, US. flleyer, Rev. F. H. Klemme, Rev. S.

Progress and service have been the aims of the library ' s competent staff, miss Grna Stech, head librarian, and miss martha Klein, assistant. So rapid has been the growth of the library, in pace with the growth of the college itself, that the memorial build- ing erected by Gvangelical young people in honor of the memory of Gvangelical soldiers fallen in the lUorld UJar, is already beginning to seem small in comparison to the demands placed upon it. There have been many occasions on which the library capacity of one hundred and sixty-six students, at the tables, has been taxed. The volume of books passed over the service desk would be astounding. But the librarians have stood up under the demands of the near capacity student body and its diligent endeavor to search out the hidden mysteries of knowl- edge — or just to get grades! Silence, Genius at Work Arbitrating the conflict between students with sincere desires to use the library as a study place and those who see it as a con- venient social hall is the duty of the surprisingly large staff of student library assistants. This year ' s student staff included Betty Jans, Clara Koerner, Srna Bock, flnn Thompson, Ruth marsh, Ruth Kemnitz, Robert Herrmann, Dean Plassman, Lois Deiters, Burdette Stauffenberg, Helen Zeiler, and Donald Riech- mann. fill have merited a share of the praise for the efficient library service.

Gven today, work offered in the Departments of Religion and Philosophy is one of the foundation stones in both the liberal arts and the pre-professional program. " In Thy Light Shall UJe See Light, " the motto of Glmhurst College, is the slogan accepted by everyone who comes to the campus for his search of knowledge. Bringing the light more clear- ly into focus has been the task of department heads H. J. Sander and T. UJ. fllenzel. fin innovation in the department this year was the post of " Dean of Chapel " occupied by fllr. George Kalbfleisch. Amidst almost uni- versal agreement that the office is really a necessary one, fllr. Kalbfleisch began his work, co- operating at the same time as assistant pastor of St. Peter ' s church. The division staff now has three Glmhurst alumni. PHILOSOPHY Six blue tasseled mortar boards will be in the Commencement pro- cession if the hopes of majors Robert Herrmann, UJilliam Lane, Ralph fllaschmeier, Richard Rasche, Kenneth Taylor, and Jost UJoshburn are fulfilled. 18 Left to light, top row; ITlargaret B.

" The School of JTlusic and Dramatic Art has been injecting subtle but significant doses of the finer things in life as Glmhurst students hurry by to find their places in the world. The department heads, vocalists, instrumentalists, and dramatists have made their impression in recitals — the first two assemblies of the school year — in their instruc- tions, and by their artistic personalities. fis a robust youngster, the Children ' s Theatre has also left its impression upon the college community. Gven college students have lent their services toward the success of the project. . . . It ' s an Art There is something more to mysterious understand- ing of the arts than the mere ability to quote ec- static phrases from a guide book. The real sense for appreciation of art in all its graphic forms is what Professor Lemon attempts to impart to his class in understanding. For those who have pro- gressed to the point of desire to express their own artistic leanings, Professor Lemon this year intro- duced the popular two hour " creative art " course. 19 ENGLISH and SPEECH DEPARTMENT MAJORS Seven seniors hoping to wear a white tassel at graduation June 10 will be Robert Bierman, Bonniebelle Campbell, Hazel JTlacGregor, Janice and Jean Pulse, Barnhard Schierhorn, and Grace Stevenson. Professor H. J. Belgum Rmerican LiteTatuie Professor C. C. flrends Speech and Dramatics Professor H. L. Breitenbach Gnglish Grammar Professor Karl H. Carlson Gnglish Literature Sectional Professor Belgum with a freshman conference group at his new office in Old Hall. Sherlock Holmes without his magnifying glass is inconceivable, fl student on the trail of elusive truth, mysterious knowledge, is equally at a loss without the tools of language and expression. At eimhurst the fundamentals in the use of the tools are con- veyed to the freshman through the patient pedagogy of Pro- fessor Breitenbach. Refinements possible only after the funda- mentals are securely in place are offered in the inviting array of courses under Professors Carlson and Belgum. Professor Carl- son ' s intimate acquaintance with the Cnglish scene about which he lectures adds interesting anecdote and observation to the story of Gnglish literary development. Professor Belgum ' s refreshing mental alacrity lends a challenge to his offerings in American literary history. In coaching those whose interests lie in oral expression. Professor Arends, with his enviable record of achieve- ment with Glmhurst Thespians, is available for elementary and advanced speech and dramatics. Tools for Meeting the Mysterious MODERN LANGUAGES I All ' s Quiet Here Though wars may rage on the native soils, Glmhurst Unguists are imparting viewpoints on fundamental cultural and aesthetic values lying in the very differences in literary heritages from the nations of Gurope. fi recognized authority on the works of Germany ' s great Goethe, Dr. Dummer draws freely upon his special knowl- edge to the benefit of the beg inner as well as the advanced student of German. His associate. Dr. Richter, stands recom- mended by his philosophical insight as well as by his native knowledge of the tongue he teaches. Professor Stanger and Professor UJagoner are the genial advocates of the queen of the Romance languages, French. To help students appreciate the beauty of correct French, Professor UJagoner has introduced mod- ern phonograph recordings as a modern technique to supplement his class work. AT COMMENCEMENT Three bearers of academic colors of the foreign languages at Commencement this year is the hope of the department heads. IN GERMAN Dean Plassman is the sole senior plan- ning his course for a German major. IN FRENCH Judith Cleland and Dorothy Simmons have concentrated on learning just how " Gvery Little French Girl says, ' Out, Out, ' " and plan to receive their fl.B. ' s in French. Gcoutez! French recordings are a supplement to Pro- fessor lUagoner ' s classes in French. Dr. lUerner Richter Geiman Professor R. fl. UJagoner Fiench and German Dr. S. Heyse Dummer German Professor C. G.

THE SCIENCES A newcomer to the department, Professor Ingle has been dili- gent in maintaining the high standards for which the Glmhurst chemistry courses are reputed in industrial as well as aca- demic circles, flluch of the reputation appears to be a direct reflection upon the fine work of Dr. Helmick, Department head, and his backgrounds in both industrial and educational chemistry. Again signifying the progress that is typical at Glmhurst, the biology laboratory this year added bacteriology to its cur- riculum, rriiss flloon, after special training last summer, teaches the course. Dr. DeBruine ' s courses grow in popularity each year as he skillfully molds his courses to fit the needs of his students. Ask " Pete " and " fTlike. " They ' ve been around long enough to know! Under Dr. Hole, physics completes the list and mathematics forms the foundation for the sciences. Professor Sydney H. Kalmbach came mid-semester to complete the list of faculty members, too. flliss Handel, of course, continues as chief drill-master in the mathematical sciences. Among the new courses she offered was one in business math. There was a new elementary physics course, too. 24 CAMPUS EMPLOYEES You Have Seen Their Faces Though the back-stage manipulations that make possible the presentation of the dramatic search for knowledge and truth often pass without much attention, try to conceive of a com- munity of four hundred getting along without the services per- formed by the capable individuals pictured above. You have seen their faces, but do you recognize them? Or do you recog- nize the importance of the work they accomplish every day on the campus? The prosaic provision of steam during cold winter days, the maintenance of campus buildings, the feed- ing of hungry hordes of dormitory students, the conduct of finan- cial affairs of the college family, the assurance that a new group of students will be on hand to replace every graduating class: all these, and many more, tasks are accomplished by those on the panel above. The whole group of non-faculty campus employees is of vital importance, but it defies the limits of space here. BUT DID YOU RECOGNIZE Paul UJichman Chief of Building maintenance. R. G.

The ability to apply evidence to situations is the real test of triumph. But the students at Glmhurst College have some indication, long before they are called upon to apply their college discoveries to the complicated problems of life, on how much they have accumu- lated in their investigations of " the mystery of knowledge. " The office staff finds one of its most burdensome duties to be summing up that evidence for every student and every parent. Some may choose to call the evidence a " grade, " those with deeper insight will recognize something far more significant than a mere letter in the regular reports. THE PERSONNEL ffliss Lang, secretary to the Dean and re- corder, and fllrs. Schirneker, secretary to the President, are in charge of the office staff of student assistants. Jeanette fHueller, experienced senior, and Dorothy Barkau and Henry Centner, freshmen, proved to be capable in accomplishing details of office routine, attendance records, switch- board operation, mimeographing, and mailing. lUith work so interesting and " bosses " so admirable, the biggest prob- lem for the student office staff was usually to keep hours down to close to the maxi- mum required. frirs.

Post [JloTtem. Coach O. III. Lang- horst. Captain Don Cash, and manager John Cast talk it over. Though it took more than half the season to get the 1940 grid machine rolling over the double chalk lines, the team, once in high gear, went on to achievement that marked this season as one of the most suc- cessful of many years. Captain Don Cash, all-conference end, led the eleven onward through a series of disheartening defeats to the dramatic victories that climaxed the season. Dorth Central, or rather Bill Schatzer, gave the Pirates a jolt at the first game, returning to Haperville with a 7-0 victory. The nip-and-tuck battle was not decided until both teams had been worn badly and both were ready to concede that Glmhurst really " had something. " Though the Pirates gave Charleston a scare, they were battered down to a 19-6 decision downstate. fit UJhitewater 28-0 told the sad story. Homecoming brought the humiliating 31-0 crack-up before Carthage — and the end of the slide into the quagmire of defeat. Illinois College Ramblers were too tough, even, for the revitalized team. But the 19-0 was the definite end of the dark days. Aurora managed to squeeze in upon the Pirates ' misfortune with a 7-7 tie, but no better. The taste of victory blood came when Gureka fell victim to Glmhurst ' s last home game enthusiasm. The 13-6 triumph marks the tombstone of the " Pirates, " also. Baptized " Blue Jays " after an " 6 " Club-GLITI BfiRK contest, the team went into its last game. Aroused by the pep bonfire Friday, encouraged by the free York Theater party, the en- thusiastic student body followed the team to see how . . . ' Glmhurst Walloped Wheaton!

Determined to upset the records, the Blue Jays undertook to set a precedent for the new name. Captain Cash started the victory parade by intercepting a UJheaton pass for a goai on the second play of the game. Gven then it was not over — until Glmhurst overwhelmed a last quarter UJheaton stand on the two yard line. Victory, 19-13, inspired the well- won strike holiday fllonday.

But " Pete ' s " experienced eye detected a lack of speed that might prove disastrous. Gven he could not fore- see, though, the injuries that took Volbrecht and ITleitz out of the backfield. lUalt Goletz, quarterback and captain-elect, shared field generalship with all-conference captain Cash, at end.

Two sparkling victories over the far superior lUheaton Crusaders and Valparaiso University sharpshooters only served to emphasize the real deficiency during the less spectacular por- tions of the season. It was the failure in scoring punch, and possibly a shortage of genuine team spirit, that sent a promis- ing squad of stellar individual material to repeated humili- ations despite fine training at the hands of Coach Fred Heine. The phenomena of guards out-scoring the team ' s forwards probably explains the sad story of the scorebook. Coach Fred Heine Coach Heine struggled with veterans who failed to improve and new men who seemed to forge ahead of his four original lettermen. Though the mid-season shake-ups were too late to be of much advantage for the 1940-41 Blue Jays, they left a heritage for the future that promises fulfillment in a fast moving, high scoring, winning quintet in years soon to come.

Kruse, 2b JTleitz, Bosworth, ss. flbele, 3b BASEBALL The appearance of the 1941 diamond squad made an immediate " hit " with Coach Langhorst. Two of the 1939 championship squad, pitcher Rasche and first baseman Tiemann, the co-captains, were back. Be- sides, enough veteran talent was left over from last year to fill both bases and the bench with experience, flhlf and Harm early turned out capable of displacing veterans. Competition for positions was stiff enough that Langhorst was able to decry, " Hit or sit! " Gven " stars " saw gaping holes threatening them on the bench. 1941 36 THE SCHEDULE Because when the eLITlS goes to press part of the schedule will be unplayed, the sports staff leaves room below for your completed per- manent record.

" The stiff schedule Blue Jay sluggers met early in the 1941 season brought discouragement so far as scores go but hopes for future possibilities. Sloppy fielding and mediocre batting were handicaps Coach Langhorst hoped to iron out before the season got too far underway. The threatened shortage on the pitching staff proved serious, but Don ITlarsh and Ray Bizer proved able to handle a few assignments. Championship material? Yes, was the answer early in the season. But even champions can throw away their chances and over rate their own abilities. Those two possibilities were obstacles almost as great as the ambitions of the eight other teams faced in the thirteen game schedule. Voices from the Bench Coach Langhorst and JTlanager Roberts consider the line-up. " Pete " Says— It wouldn ' t sound like Pete at all to quote anything optimistic. But it is true, in a moment of elation early in practice, Pete almost looked at the season hopefully. One " if " qualified his high spirits, a big IF. " They certainly shape up into a good team, " Coach Langhorst early said, " If only they can hit! " Manager Roberts — Though Florm hesitated at sticking his neck out before the second DeKalb contest, he ventured, " It looks as though they are going to be the champions. " The team looked good enough to Roberts to win two-thirds of the games on the schedule, but even the optimistic manager, with a glance at the co- captain, echoed the coach in the dirge, " If only they ' ll start to hit! " June graduation will take only two of the Blue Jay nine off of the diamond. Gven if the seven veterans return next season, Pete will have a difficult time replacing the two co-captains who have been mainstays at first base and on the mound through four seasons. Dick Rasche and Robert Tiemann helped beat DeKalb and win a Little nineteen conference championship in their fresh- man year. Both deserve special mention for their stellar brand of baseball and their determination to stick with the team whether it lived up to their expectations or not. Both rightly deserved the captaincy they shared. UJhat will happen next season to the seven experienced teammates they will leave behind them depends pretty largely upon what sort of relief Coach Langhorst can find for their vacated positions in the Blue Jay nine. 38 TENNIS The first spring swing around a Southern IlUnois and JTlissouri net circuit brought only three victories in five starts to the Blue Jay tennis squad. Behind the record, though, was valuable experience that helped send the top-notch squad off under flying colors when the regular season began. A strong Rorth Central squad held off a determined attack in the 3 to 3 tie. But Glmhurst went on from there through the first half of the schedule without a defeat. Three consecutive tries sent op- ponents down in love matches. Bloomington challenged more stiffly but succumbed to the Glmhurst finesse, 4 to 3. Clarence Schweer and Vern- on Greene, seasoned veterans as number one and number two men, and Paul limbeck and Henry Frees in three and four held down singles at the mid- point in the season. Doubles victories were products of the Schweer-Greene and Umbeck- Hakewill racket combinations. Hopes ran high with the Confer- ence meet approaching at De- Kalb JTlay 23 and 24. Blue Jay netters felt strong possibilities of triumph. COACH ARENDS Undaunted by the loss of veter- an captain Dan fflabee. Coach C. C. flrends " stuck his neck out " early in the season by pre- dicting a championship. fTlid- way through the schedule, his well groomed squad seemed well on the way toward fulfill- ing that prophecy. 40 ReCORDS tumbled on all sides as what seemed at first to be a quite mediocre track squad came up under Coach Fred Heine ' s expert tutelage to surprise the campus with the spirit and determination that brought many more points than had been predicted by the pessimists. The stately trophy supplied by the Lion ' s club provided the incentive that pushed George UJinkley to a new campus high hurdles record, a :16.1 mark, and brought Glmhurst a 67-64 surprise triumph over Illinois Tech. Harry Illeyer ' s Bachelor Shop trophy was the incentive to performance in the UJheaton-Illinois Tech triangular. Gven at the very beginning of the season the thin- clads displayed unexpected vigor in holding the versatile Rorth Central Cardinals below 100 points. newcomers to the cinder oval were the injection that brought life to what at first appeared to be a listless and unpromising squad. Jack Lichtenheld, freshman, com- ing up as a half-miler, UJinkley breezing over the hurdles, and Ted fllauch hustling around the mile were among the stars in a field of men who, whether they put vic- tories or stand defeats in the rec- ords, will be remembered in Glm- hurst athletic history as men who honestly tried. Credit for the transformation from mediocrity to promise also rests heavily upon Coach Fred Heine, who persistently inspired performance where hope was lov . lUith a few capable veterans and an array of talented newcomers, he built a track squad quite worthy of Clmhurst ' s name.

It was cool, but not uncomfortable, when John G. Holden, meet originator, and coaches Langhorst and Heine, games committee, signalled for action in the first of the fifteen meet events, moderately fast track and an exceptional field were starred. Twenty-five first or second place winners in the 1940 meet were among the 172 men in the largest field ever to enter an 6.1.1. fill but one of the five 1940 record breakers were participating this year. And a crowd of about five hundred was on hand to witness the colorful spectacle.

Vigorous leadership in the women ' s athletic de- partment brought archery, badminton, and even horseback riding into the foreground among activities for girls. UJomen ' s basketball and volleyball also had their innings but faded when the klieg lights focused upon the archery and badminton tournaments. There is something particularly symbolic for the coed ' s program in the graceful flight of the skillfully poised arrow and the darting of the unpredictable feathered bird. Glmhurst coeds were attracted from the moment the new equipment became a part of the regular collegi- ate athletic program here. The new equipment supplemented tum- bling as a major part of the gym program for freshman and sophomore girls, too, the women ' s athletic director declared. The inauguration of horseback riding as a part of the athletic program came more out of individual efforts of UJomen ' s Union members than from the official program of college activities. It was soon enthusiastically adopted by a large number of Glmhurst ' s coeds. Coed Capers DIRECTOR MAUDE JOHNSON Vast improvements can seldom be credited to any single individual, but the important expansion in offerings for women in Glmhurst ' s athletic department are quite largely the work of vivacious, en- thusiastic, capable fTliss ITlaude Johnson, member of the Athletic Committee and Director of UJo- men ' s Athletics.

Our Girls Go Intercollegiate One of the most significant features of the women ' s athletic program in the past year has been the venture into intercollegiate horizons. Glmhurst ' s representatives were not altogether unsuccessful, flc- cording to flliss Johnson, group representation was accomplished at " play days " at Chicago Teachers and Ilorth Central College. ITlore specialized in their representation were the tennis squad members, Jacqueline Propst, Gdna Jean Llewellyn, Anna fllarie Lein- berger, Virginia lUarner, Barbara Cross, and ITlargaret Hatch. By the GLinS deadline hour, the girls had succeeded in avenging an earlier defeat by Horth Central with a 4 to 2 victory, fit least one game remaining on the schedule, fiurora College, permitted the girls an opportunity to bring the season ' s record over the .500 mark.

INTRAMURAL PROGRAM MANAGER- ELECT After three years of intense in- terest in intramural activities, much of the time as intramural reporter for the GLm BARK, Dale " UJillie " UJolfgram goes into his senior year at the head of the important Glmhurst in- tramural program. He is a cru- sader for clean intramural sportsmanship. The juniors had things pretty much their own way through three fourths of the intramural season. Juniors emerged with championships in football and track. During the bas- ketball season, the juniors also led throughout most of the season but collapsed with the end in sight and finished in a slump down in third place. The sophomores, winners of the basketball title, were also favored in the toss-up between juniors and sophs to capture the annual soft-ball title. Garly victories gave them a slight edge, manager UJolfgram de- clared. Throughout the four seasons, intra-mu ral manager George Schler worked hard at iwo objectives he had set for the program, when named to lead it. He strove for clean competition and for increased interest in the events spon- sored. One of the major problems attacked through GLiTL BARK columns all year was the lack of support even for the win- ning intra-mural squads. Better, more careful, selection of the teams and closer refereeing and umpiring were two tactics Schler and his successor UJolfgram used as a remedy. In the attempts to clean up the intramural games. Coach Langhorst lent his full encouragement to the managers. As a result, it was generally conceded that competition was on a higher level this year than in the past. Adventures for Everyone 46 FOUNDERS ' DAY A Climax for the College Athletic Program Though not conceived until late in the season, what started out as Glmhurst ' s first ITlaY Festival proved to be a gala climax to Slmhurst ' s athletic year. For- tunately the opportunity to celebrate " Founders ' Day " gave the festivities an impetus that quite possibly would have been absent if the athletic department had planned this first fllay fete as no more than an ordinary athletic holiday. As it was, the seventieth anniversary commemoration added just what the first niay festival needed to set it as a prece- dent for the future — a precedent for the dramatic display of the activities of those branches of the athletic department which remain behind the scenes throughout most of the seasons. Queens graced the festive occasion as examples of the typical cooperation demanded in the preparations for Founders ' Day. Gach class chose two coeds for the court, then the student body united in selecting queen Luella ITlcClure, ex-Prom Queen senior. Yvonne Jorgensen, Ularj Davidson, Lorraine Ulaier, Diane Seeberger, Betty fans, Cariotta ITlueller, and Jeanne Scott reigned with her in the JTlay court. RESPONSIBLE Glmhurst ' s first fllay Festival is the brain-child of Uliss Johnson, who was given general chair- manship. Dr DeBruine helped bring about the anniversary theme, along with Professor flrends.

LOONEY LOUIE Neglected Genius Sirs: Even though it is usually the sad case with genius, I think Elmhurst might have made an exception to the rule by recognizing the genius in its midst. Though, in his modesty, he far preferred such inex- pressive psuedonyms as " Staufenstutz, " I feel that, after his shabby treatment in this issue of the ELMS, the great one is entitled to full benefits of his honorable name, even prefixed by some title of distinction. (No profanity, please.) The great one, of course, is none other than the Honorable (sometimes) Mr. Burdette Stauf- fcnberg, with emphasis upon the through, past your own picture, through the group of seniors. Do you find Mr. Stauf- fenberg there? (The editor crossed me if you do.) Did you find a word about his daring exploits, out- maneuvering even where he did not out-play other pinochlers? Or a hint about the career that is a worthy parallel of the great Judge Landis? Of course not. True genius, truly neglected. Yes, " Stauffie " is a senior. As he says, it took him five years to be neglected in the senior section of the ELMS To me it seems to be the ELMS ' own loss.

" Zeuglodon, " not " Zueglodon " Dear Editor: Congratulations on the success of your recent cam- paign! You no doubt wonder what campaign your correspondent refers to. But does it really matter? There have been many campaigns; pay your money and take your choice! We would call your attention, though, to a mis- spelled word in your campaign literature. " Zeuglodon " was written " zueglodon. " Now here is a solution for all editors in cases of questionable spellings — and even meanings. All you have to do is get the derivation. For example: " Zeu " from the old Roman meaning bestiary; " glo " from the old Persian designation for a glowing object; " don " from old Oak Park, recaUing a migration to a Northern state. Isn ' t that simple? In the future, when in doubt, use derivations! S.B.S.

In his second year as official student cameraman, Kross came across with masterpieces that proved to be the envy of even professional photogra- phers. On some of the necessary professional work, Kross again had the able assistance of genial Kenneth Moore of Glen Ellyn. Everyone who knows photography admitted Mr. Moore ' s portraits this year to be the best he has turned out in his several years of work with ELMS staffs. Photographs for the ELMS were, primarily, indoor pictures under artificial light. Chief photographer Kross prefers his No. 2 photo- floods or an 11a photo-flash for the type of work required by the ELMS. He alternated in using his battered Coronet, f.6.3 lens, and an inter- esting old Primo film pack camera with the same lens range. Super XX is the film Kross has used, developing and printing for contrast for the best engraved effects. Professional Ken- neth Moore took most of his ELMS photos with a speed graphic or a contax camera. Some in- teresting football action shots were taken from the bleachers with " Big Bertha, " Mr. Moore ' s own invention. -.C-4-STYL-- CaUing All GLAMOUR GIRLS Need a Dress With Extra Oomph or a Skirt With Distinctive Style.

Their venture progressed. Their ideal has lived through the better part of a century. Equally daring graduates this year are venturing into a dark future, stepping into a chaotic world. Prepared for the secular demands of life and the job, they are also enriched by the ideal that inspired the founders. Even today it is Elmhurst ' s ideal. Elmhurst can stand loyal to the worthy ideal through the tumultuous clamors of secularism. To do so it must have loyalty and support as dar- ing as that of the founders. Elmhurst must depend on the graduates of to- day, yesterday, and tomorrow for strength in crisis. Existence itself, not only an ideal, may be at stake when the college attempts to continue a high leadership in a world so prone to turn and cry, " Crucify!

Elmhurst, Illinois 54 Elmhurst 1940-1941 HOMECOMING Coeducation Anniversary Greets Returning Alumni MIlTH open arms and high spirits, the it college welcomed its alumni home for the week end of October 18-20. While freshmen had the opportunity to see what a successful Elmhurst graduate looks hke, alumni came to see whether or not the college could really get along without them. Every building on the campus underwent a face-lifting with Don Reichmann and Tess Baumann in charge of operations. Everywhere there was evidence in abundance that ten years of coeducation had done the school no harm. First official gathering was the banquet for alumni and seniors. While seniors and alumni feasted, cars lined up and the parade was on. To the tunes of the Elmhurst College band and the cheers of townspeople eager to demonstrate Lloyd Pfaiitsch erects prize decoration their good will, the parade moved. Up Pros- pect, down York, in and out side streets the long line curved its devious way back to the gym and the traditional bonfire. There alums joined students again to give official welcome to the freshmen as the flames of their bonfire died. Long before the last Hck of the flames, the College Theater was ready for the capacity audi- ence. Ivan Sparling, Bob Herrmann, Wally Sandner, and Dubby Davis sparked the original revue, " Happy Days, " to its brilliant conclusion. The alumni who went to bed at all were greeted when they arose by the Saturday morn- ing musicale. Despite the disappointment of the Homecoming game with Carthage, spirit continued through the climax of the week end in the dance at the gym that evening. 55 AMONG THE Business for the Student Union this year started off m brisk fashion. Before school was thoroughly underway, complaints were pouring in. " Open Mam m the evening! " The problem was solved when Union officials agreed to patrol the rooms (vice-squad) after hours. With this for a starter, activity was bound to take unexpected turns. Modest about his ad- ministration, president Dick Rasche the " shiniest man on the campus " — was asked about the most outstanding phase of the year ' s activity. Quoth Dick, " Nothing! " Unquoth. In September the Student Union sponsored the freshman mixer. Mainly a event to display freshman talent, it produced a new man on the street m Jim Schram. Another innovation in free potato chips and coke — beside the door prize — accompanied the Christmas Party. Like it? Students liked it so well they walked off with two unopened cartons of chips and all re- maining cokes. Taught by experience, the S. L. and R. committee (Social Life and Rela- tions) had coeds furnish the box lunches for the Let- Down Party. Fellows not satisfied with home cooking could purchase their own eats! The Women ' s Union weathered the year under the guiding hands of dark haired Dorothy Roe, a senior. Specially planned programs each month made the year a full one. There was no neglect of the usual sponsorship of the four big annual events. First there was the Coed Dance (Remember January 11?). Posters and word-of-mouth pubHcity brought out the largest crowd in history. In sheer en- joyment, starry-eyed coeds gazed at their star- dust ceiling m peace. Even Chairman Judy Cle- land forgot the calculating gleam and its ac- companying " Did we make expenses? " The Circus parade (see below) came to town on February 13, followed closely by the fashion parade of the April style show. In the tearoom setting, curvacious coeds modeled spring and summer wardrobes.

Long before the end of the busy year Elm- hurst ' s coeds were ready for the banquet finally scheduled at the Green Shutters. While fresh- men looked on, uncomprehending, the seniors, womanly, choked down the thought of the years behind them. The Ninth Annual Circus claimed the energies of committees for two hectic weeks after exams. At the head of all was fiery-headed Ann Thompsen whose genius forced the show to heights worthy of its billing as " the greatest show on the campus. " Smooth girls and suave fellows tossed glamor momentarily aside Friday night and Saturday, February 15. Pitching in with needles, thread, hammers, and saws, all helped convert the gym into a " big top. " Side- shows sprang up over night in odd corners. Booths Hned the walls.

Those susceptible to South- ern accents and the Southern belles who played hosts were treated to the Indiana-Ken- tucky itinerary begun on February 7. Sacred and secular numbers were included in the pro- grams. F eatured as soloists were the booming basso, Lloyd Pfautsch, and tenors Bill Lithgow and Herb Frit sche. Two quartets traveled with the club this year. John Popp, Charles Duffy, Paul Irion, and Don Sickbert make up the fresh- man group that is challenging the old faithfuls, Pfautsch, Lithgow, Dick Mernitz, and Henry Schroerluke. Crowning the other features, Waldemar B. Hille, glee club director, laid aside his baton to thrill the tour audiences with his sparkling piano solos. Back on the campus, the glee club began working feverishly to prepare an all-sacred pro- gram for their repertoire. Cooperation v ith the publicity department made possible an additional mid-Lenten tour to Milwaukee, March 12-14. One radio broadcast and concerts at Hinckley, 111., Monroe, New Glarus, and Milwaukee, Wis., and Northbrook, 111., were on the tour schedule. Preparations for the spring concert here be- gan immediately after the Milwaukee trip. A few months at home gave business manager Harold Grunewald and President Paul Umbeck time to lay out plans for the big post-season tour to New York. A valuable adjunct to the glee club ' s reputa- tion was the work Director Hille has done in recording American folk songs. Recognition in P. M. on February 23 was typical of the interest excited by Hille ' s Osarkian recordings. The music formed the base of an important part of the club ' s repertoire for the year.

Concert Veterans from Green Rookies — Bouslough ' s Triumph With Year ' s Women ' s Glee Club THERE were more ups and downs in the women ' s glee club this year than are ordi- narily run through in practice of the scales. One of the major problems was persuading an accompanist to stick to her task. Jean Pulse had to give up the job she held at the beginning of the year. Eleanor Ragland took over until she left school. Finally Ruth Marsh accepted the title of official ivory pounder for the major por- tion of the season. New blood in the chorus, many freshmen and upper classmen singing for the first time, gave the glee club the largest membership it has had in some time. It also necessitated going over routines, learning new music for virtually a com- plete new repertoire. Petite and charming director Maude Bous- lough had many new ideas which, as was self- evident from the results, worked wonders with the women. At her suggestion, each girl made monthly recordings of her voice. Comparisons from month to month throughout the year re ' vealed to each singer her own progress. This alone accounted for a good deal of the marked improvement in tone quality both of individuals the chorus. Officers chosen to pilot the club through the year where Judith Cleland, chief warbler, Ruth Marsh, vice warbler, Lois Deiters, secre- tary-treasurer, Ha2;el MacGregor, business man- ager, and Helen Zeiler, librarian. Unexpected last-minute cancellations of con- certs stalled the machinery for a tour the coeds had, quite efficiently and unprecedentedly, ar- ranged for November. Undaunted by the dis- appointment, the girls looked ahead to the an- nual spring tour, worked doubly hard at keep- ing everyone learning new music, and planning a route into the East. All too soon tour dates came and passed. From the time the loaded bus left, pointed toward Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio, days passed quickly toward the April 30 return. Tired, happy, and broke, the girls claimed a successful tour well worth the time, effort, and long an- ticipation. Other concert appearances included one as significant as that before an Orchestra Hall audi- ence in Chicago. The first performance was at the Homecoming musicale. From there the singers branched out into Chicago several times, to Bensenville, and back to Elmhurst for a highly successful concert before presidents of thirty- three Illinois colleges meeting here on the cam- pus in February. Responsible, to no small degree, for the ama:;ing success of the glee clubs are Directors Walde- mar B. Hille and Miss Maude Bouslough. With winning patience rare for such talent, they rounded the raw amateurs of their two choruses into concert groups worthy of the generous praises showered upon them on their respective concert tours. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE MUSIC (CONTINUED) Oft Attempted Reorganization of the Band Appears Successful This Year H SMALL, courageous group of students tried, fl m the fall of ' 39, to institute a revival of the defunct Elmhurst College band. With Eddie Schlundt as director, the group had a brave start until something happened — or failed to happen. Cooperation lagged after the glamor of athletic appearances faded from the hard rehearsals. Discouragement " set in " quickly. row, bines, bteinhebel, onai Kehle, Hillebrand, Noffke. THIS year ' s revival of the band came through Nith flying colors and a different story. Cooperation hit a high note in band history. The number of musicians who turned out in September practically startled old mem- bers. All together, they were on hand at the football games to hearten the squad with a material public. Sustained interest was important. Band offi- cers scratched heads and pencils and worked out a point system by which to award loyalty and service. Points are now awarded for attendance at practices and at public appearances. Seventy- five per cent of the available points equalled one white band sweater. With enthusiasm thus reinforced, the band proceeded to entertain basketball crowds in the gym. Approval went out to the varied reper- toire with its medleys of popular songs in addi- tion to marches and school tunes. It was gratify- ing. Director Schlundt admitted, after strenuous twice a week rehearsals in O.H. 17. Far from a sound-proof practice hall, the quarters gave other students in nearby offices ample justifica- tion in seconding Schlundt ' s statement, " The band has improved one hundred per cent over last year ' s band and shows constant improve- ment within itself. " For the last fling, the band took the spring festival as its goal and worked feverishly to make a creditable showing. The consequence: President Sam Pobanz graduates " fully pleased " with the season ' s results and hopes for better things next year. For the other officers, Ray Bizer, vice-presi- dent, and Erma Jane Hahn, secretary-treasurer, Poban- left his post pleading, " There ' s no need for anyone to hide his talent.

" 60 CHAPEL CHOIR REORGANIZATION YIELDS MARKED RESULTS IN IMPROVED PROGRAMS FOR CHAPEL SERVICES COMPLETE reorganization at the beginning of the season set the chapel choir off to a record of performances that really en ' hanced an already long established prestige. Problems of eliminating the erratic voluntary attendance and participation were met. The carefully selected group of about forty voices remained under the skillful surveillance of Director Hille from the outset of the year. Organized primarily to augment the effec- tiveness of the chapel services, the choir func- tioned under the cooperative leadership of Director Hille, Dean of Chapel George Kalb- fleisch, and Organist Emma Mary Foote. Plans to transform the choir into a regular mixed chorus ready to represent the college with both sacred and secular music in outside concerts proceeded through the fall. Constitu- tional organization accompanied the change, bringing Lloyd Pfautsch, Mary Hausam, Dor- othy Klick, Kenneth Taylor, and Paul Irion to elective offices. Tour plans inexplicably collapsed, much to the relief of many of the singers, for whom the new rehearsal schedule was scarcely enough for the regular program of song. Singers rehearsed on Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday eve- nings for chapel appearances on Thursday and Friday mornings. The higher quality of the work has been attributed by the director to the new practice and singing schedule. Relief from the humdrum of weekly appear- ances came in the Christmas candlelight serv- ice and the Lenten Cantata. Harry Vernon, ' 39, baritone, and Miss Maude Bouslough, so- prano, served as Christmas service soloists. Viola Mae Keir, ex. ' 39, and Reba Burrows, ' 40, duet, and Edward Schlundt were featured in the Bach Cantata, " Christus Lag in Todes Banden, " presented this year for the third time as a part of the pre-Easter observances. Regular contributions to the weekly Lenten services was another special offering of the chapel choir deeply appreciated by the minority of the stu- dent body who took advantage of the series. In part, the Chapel Choir realized its dream of representing the college in public when it offered its services at St. Peter ' s Church in Elm- hurst during the Lenten season.

Informality remained the aim throughout the season as dignity fell before the incessant, irrepressible reappearence of Fun. Ge:;:ioo (you guess who!) kept the type hot long after the lead had cooled and drew special attention to Inter Nos. Some serious moments proved that it was not all fun and frolic. In September the intrepid editors stood out as champions of a student cause in keeping Old Main open evenings. Their suggestion was the chaperone system. On the other hand, they urged less decorum and restraint in releasing school spirit for the teams. They urged more liberality in the antiquated cut system. Giving freely of their own time, the Bobs go down in history as a pair of editors who did their best to please a critically news hungry student pub- lic.

From Sep- tember through May he labored countless wearying hours in the disarrayed office m Old Hall. First he planned, organized, arranged, and wrote. Then he reorganized, re-arranged, and rewrote. Only those on the inside in the game can reahze the tremendous work required of a chosen few in putting out a book of the cahbre of the ELMS. Sleepless nights, fre- quent trips to Milwaukee — to the publishing house, numerous explanations to " greener " members of the staff, general confusion, and continual pounding of the typewriter all take their toll on the human constitution. Ask John! Nevertheless, with one eye on the copy and the other on the calendar, he managed to breeze over all the deadlines — sometimes with as much as half an hour to spare.

In November Tess Baumann accepted appointment as associate ed itor while the management stood by and gleefully rubbed its hands at the prospect of grooming her for next year ' s editorship. Though freshmen were available as reporters and typists, there was a dearth of trained people to fill responsible positions. Rather than to fill the mast head with mere figureheads, the staff doubled up on duties to take care of all the jobs. Wednesday afternoons were open forum days as the BARK prepared to " go to press.

Yet the staff was considerably relieved when delivery date finally came around with the fin- ished product after harrowing revisions and scurries to meet inevitable deadlines. Deficiency m numerical strength on the staff was compen- sated by genuine compatibility that left most of the somewhat reluctant guiding geniuses readily willing to admit that, after all, it is a lot of fun. A " find " among the freshmen, Mary Ormsbee, proved her talent in handling the art work. Bill Kruse and Earl Buck accomplished the titanic feat of making fifteen hundred dol- lars worth of yearbook a financier ' s field day. Professor C. O.

In fact, ' most important of all characteristics is the simple interest in the work.

Early in March produc- tion was under way for the spring per- formances. Casting veterans in every role, the Theater called on Myron Schmitt, Jost Washburn, Gayle Sackett, Helen Jean Neumann, Mary Jane Bader, August Kluge, Paul Irion, and Otto Press for the show.

With the help of College Theater members, the Recital Hall home of the Theatre became the scene of three successful productions, " Five Little Peppers, " " The Silver Thread, " and " The Emperor ' s New Clothes. " College people assisting received credit toward membership in the College Theater. Some, like Peter Blau, assistant director, won enviable executive posts. Selection of plays remained in the hands of a Children ' s Theatre Board of grade school students. Most of the acting was done by youngsters, too. Taking their work seriously, the younger Thespians are among those given much of the credit for the successful performances by Director Severin. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE THEATER (CONTINUED) Behind the Scenes as College Theater Crews Begin Production Work for " Laburnum Grove " GENEROUS cooperation with little hope of recognition in return is the lot of the impor- tant back stage army that puts a College Theater production before the audience. Work begins, as m the recent ' Xaburnum Grove ' ' presentation, months ahead of time with sample sets and con- struction plans. Then as curtain time draws near the urgent call goes out for more help m the significant details that go into a flawless stage play. Electricians use technical skills in plan- ing the striking effects that seem so simple from fifth row center. Weeks of experiment with colored lights and spots precede even dress rehearsal. Every man, or woman, to his talents is the busy stage crew rule. Some with tools, some with pencil and paper, some with paint brush all are coordinated under the guiding genius of Ivan Sparling, who has complete responsibility for staging. Devoting almost all of his spare time, Sparling tinkers ' " with the hghts, applies saw ' and hammer to the sets, spatters his clothes with paint, and suggests possibilities on how others may earn the requisite number of Theater hours. Not even a signature of the workmanship re- mains at curtain time. All the hours become a part of " Laburnum Grove " or Shakespeare. The crew is ready for a new show. 1 - Crew members who have served with distinction in the College Theater and the Children ' s Thea- tre during the past year: Ivan Sparling Charles Kambar Paul Kehle Gene Dillenbeck August Klugc Arnold Geske Dean Plassmann Bob Herrmann Harry Willman Philip Fischer Henry Schroerluke Lew Stoerker Ray Bizer Betty McEwcn Virginia Wuellner Jost Washburn Isabelle Bennett Harriet Reich Back stage Ivan Sparling, top at left, and August Kluge check on lighting ar- rangements.

C. Arends explained as a basic phycho- logical reason for the much discussed College Theater reor- ganisation this season. The aim of the Theater is to admit to formal membership only those students who can meet the physical requirements of seventy-five hours of Theater work during the year, who are really interested in the work, and who have something to contribute to the College Theater ' s program for the campus and the community. To achieve this, by unanimous vote the membership approved the system of voting upon individual applicants for membership at the close of a year of work. The first group of members inducted under the new system were awarded their pins at the annual May banquet where new olficers were also installed. Coming close upon the heels of the plan to include College Theater work among the beneficiaries of the Student Activities Fee plan, the semester ' s revisions give the campus a completely new and vitali2;ed dramatic group within a structure essentially the same as that which operated successfully in past years. President Ivan Sparling won his office through years of dihgent service in the Theater. Looking to the future, he sees an annual tour with a play one of the most needed improvements in program.

Ambitious co- operation between student members and alumni from the first loomed as a good omen.

Typical of all was the admission of President Lehmann to honorary membership at an early meeting.

Restrictions for member- ship are low " and visitors are usually welcome at any of the meetings. Every organization charges some form of dues, but delinquent students are not kept " outside the charmed circle. Each meeting features a program and plenty of refreshments to help entice the wayward student. Besides the regular meetings, the clubs work to make the annual circus a success. Parade " entries, sideshows, and stunts are all boosted for publicity ' s sake as well as for a try at the prize. Beside this, the language clubs usually advertise their versatility by putting on a play each year. The " E " Club sponsors an assembly; and other groups work hard to compete for student recognition. As an added attraction, the organizations usually sponsor several parties for loyal members. At these, business is openly discussed, and members bring guests to propagandize for future meetings. Leaders of major campus clubs, reading left to right, below, are Dorothy Simmons, Le Cercle Francais, Kenneth Taylor.

The four more or less permanent clubs are typical of the many that spring up from time to time as the need arises. And the need filled seems to be the desire for social fellowship that grows upon the strong foundation of common inter- ests. The degree of emphasis upon the social aspects varies with the organ- ization and the taste of individual members, it seems. But social emphasis there is in marked contrast to the formal scholarship of texts and classrooms. With Dr. Dummer himself on hand with a cheery greeting as the meet- ing starts, the Goethe Verein demon- strates admirably a successful synthesis of the social and scholastic objectives of the campus study clubs. Official social branch of the German Depart- ment, the Goethe Verein aims at a program that will be stimulating as well as entertaining. Closely akin is the French Club, pro- fessionally addressed as Le Cerle Francais. A taste for musical en- tertainment, typical French aesthetic appreciation, predominated club meet- ings this season. And the traditional Christmas party with the Goethe Verein was an extension of the so- cial program quite pertinent in the world of 1940. Activities of a more serious vein en- grossed both the Student Christian Association and the Pre Theological Society, as well as the dead, or dying, Science Club. Members sought in them fellowship in the sharing, wheth- er in agreement or disagreement, of serious thought on serious topics. The S.C.A. ventured, commendably, be- yond its own membership in carrying its social challenges to the student body. The Pre-Thes, by nature more exclusive, sought closer cooperation among the large group of students whose common aim is the ministry. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE Call to order.

The prize blunder in filling a job came when two students washed all the storm v;indows at an Elmhurst home, left them standing in the garage, and later heard the returning husband had pushed his car right through the pile. In March of this year calls had already topped last year ' s mark by about 300. The spring vacation rush was still to come. Student workers at the bureau are employed through the N.Y.A. This also takes care of around thirty other people. Some do office work in Old Main, shovel sidewalks, work in Irion Hall, and accomplish other odd jobs. Others work at Elmhurst grammar schools. The college " hash-house " uses a large num ' ber of the dormitory fellows. Betty Jans had a taste of real Commons efficiency when, after asking for " a little less potatoes, " was obHged by " Tater " Schler, who thought she had requested " a little glass of pota- toes. " During Christmas, Easter, and summer vacation, a large crew is employed at keeping buildings in shape. Look for the results when you get back in September. RUTH MARSH 80 PUTTING US ON THE MAP Sirs: Students on the campus who put in a lot of work rarely suffer from lack of recognition. The college maintains its own Public Relations Department to in- sure wide publicity of school news. For the past four years the job has been ' ' n the hands of this year ' s se- nior, John Hein. His business is to keep the home- town newspapers of students informed, keep Chicago and Elmhurst newspapers supplied, and in general make the communities ' ' Elmhurst conscious. " The articles given out are not " propaganda. " Each one is based on honest truth about some earnest student efforts. Most of the news concerns the glee club ' s tours, athletic contests, student elections, and honor rolls. Though the department does not suffer from a lack of news, more cooperation in news " leads " would be of help. In hopes of taking over John ' s job next year, Otto Press, a freshman, accepted the posi- tion of assistant P. A. at mid-year this season. JUDITH CLELAND Peoples Coal Material Co. B. J.

" lUise Fools, " the canny Greek said — " Sophomores. " The real wisdom is in the recognition of their lack of truth. In that realization the class of sopho- mores entered seriously into the busi- ness of learning. Sixteen of the class members emerged on the honor roll for the first semester. In their lighter moments, members of the sophomore class managed some mighty fancy pro- moting. The " Turkey Trot " was their inspiration. Sophomores entered ac- tively into other campus affairs to prove to all doubters that the eighty- nine class members merit the claim to the title " upperclassmen " by their use of opportunities before them.

Sponsorship of the big- gest social event of the year, the Prom, is an indication of how com- pletely a junior has been assimilated into college life. Responsibilities of Prom management indicate faith the campus puts in a junior ' s ability. But the real, inquiring, spirit of the junior is best expressed in his own revelation of ambitions and ideals . . . his major.

Graduation, appropria tely called " Commencement, " is the end of it all. But it is also the beginning of what all Glmhurst hopes will be fifty-two careers as successful and useful as they were here on the campus. Year on Honor Roll ROBGRT BieRmAnn CAMPUS DISTINCTION B.S. • E Athletic Award Winner Glmhurst, 111. Bob collected on his pleasing personality with the presidency of the senior class, fin able athlete, he played varsity basketball for four years, spent a year on the baseball team besides being active in intra- murals. Singing in the Freshman and Sophomore Quartets, he filled odd hours with bridge and ping pong. UJe predict a good record for Bob, in petroleum chemistry or elsewhere. SENIOR PRESIDENT E LOmeLL BLfllSDGLL A. B. Glmhurst, 111. They say " Frog " had the fastest forehand drive of all the table tennis topers that infested the " Y " room this year. Lowell is a history major and his plans for the future include graduate study at either UJisconsin or Illinois, preparatory to teaching. Only the History and French clubs enjoyed the pleasure of his quiet personality and friendly smile, these being his only extra-curricular interests. E N I NINETEEN ECCTT CNE 101 miLLmm block • B. S. • mver Forest, 111. One of the few quiet seniors, Bill spent his last year as physics teaching assistant, and as a math practice teacher at Hawthorne school. He was another of the bigger and better bridge fiends; seldom did a whole day pass without a good round of cards. Bill is a chemistry major and hesitatingly admits he expects to find a future in teaching. PHYSICS LABORATORY ASSISTANT eVGLYn BOYD • B. S. • • Eflay wood, 111. fl conscientious and ambitious mathematician, Gvelyn entered Glm- hurst in her Sophomore year. She soon acquired the admiration of her friends and from that time forth was called upon to accept re- sponsible positions. She belonged to the French Club, Chapel Choir, UJoman ' s Glee Club, and was elected treasurer of the UJomen ' s Union. Gvelyn also plans to enter the teaching profession, and will add to her knowledge at northwestern. BOnniGBGLLG CamPBGLL • A. B. • Chicago, 111. Bonnie, obviously one of the Scots, remains true to her ancestry with a major in Gnglish. A member of Goethe Verein and the College The- ater, she joined the ranks of the practice teachers during her senior year and fears she will continue her teaching career in the future. Bonnie had a " marvelous " time while at Glmhurst but we knew she ' d come out on top! mARBGn CflRSTGnS • B. S. • maywood, 111. Here is a lad that grew up fast. " Bubbles " was a commuting student who found an outlet for his extra-curricular interests in the German Club and a poker deck. The Chemistry department claimed him as one of its majors, and he plans to make that field his life work. Prob- ably there isn ' t a fellow on the entire campus with a broader and readier grin. DOnALD CASH • A. B. • Glmhurst, III. Don had a definite cash value. Appropriately enough he majored in econ and plans to be a purchasing agent in the future. Since entering Glmhurst as a sophomore he has been a " hard hitter " on field and in classroom. Don really " gave " in football, which merited him the cap- taincy of 1940 ' s squad. In addition to this he was a trackman, on the golf squad, and Student Union athletic chairman. ALL-CO NFERENCE END E JUDITH CLGLflnD • A.B. • fllaYwood, 111. Judy has been one of those " joiners. " find her honest-to-goodness ability, along with a winning personality, kept her in demand in or- ganizations and on committees. Besides, she had enough " it " to win her a place in the Prom queen court. It won her Don ' s attentions, and that, she said, kept her spare time filled. ITlusical organizations, French Club, and publications limited her spare time. GLEE CLUB PRESIDENT mflDGLine DILLenBeCK • B. S. • Chicago, 111. " Dilly " — you can call her " Dursie " , too — has been a regular little shining light around our campus for three years, coming to Glmhurst as a trained nurse, and serving as student nurse while studying in preparation for teaching science in a nursing school. Her extra- curricular interest: Social Life Council, and the Science Club, F. fl. L. C. (?). find has she got a drag with — people! STUDENT NURSE JOHn efiST • A. B. • . eimhurst. 111. Johnny was a rabid Culbertson devotee of the first water and tossed one mean trump. He plans to go into business of one kind or another, and took his major in history. The limelight played on him as he managed the football team during 1940; other than that he did not place himself in the public eye more than was necessary. E HfiROLD FISCHCR • A. B. • Dansville, 11. Y. UJith an " in " with everyone and in everything on the campus, " Budge " leaves a mark for his place on the campus. He was the Social Life Council pioneer, instituting the first informals. He hurdled his way to track captaincy and " £ " Club presidency. Studies he hurdled almost as easily. He is looking forward to a graduate fellowship somewhere. lUith personality, plus, and his " lUay, " what a teacher! " E " CLUB PRESIDENT E HOmCR FRGGSe • B. S. • Lake Zurich, 111. It didn ' t take very long for " The Deacon " to hit his scholastic stride at Glmhurst. He shared two scholarships and won honor roll for all semesters, fl bookworm? Dot for a moment. One of the organizers of the Science Club (a chemist himself) he was its president this year. The glee club, Goethe Verein, and College Theater took part of his time, filed school, probably Illinois, is his goal after graduation. SCIENCE CLUB PRESIDENT NINETEEN ECCTT CNE PAUL GflBRIZ • A.B. Villa Park, 111. Paul didn ' t spend much time around school because he had plenty of outside necessary work to more than occupy his hours, fl major in economics, and a conscientious one at that, he hopes eventually to go into personnel work. Rot too busy, however, to miss the glamor of the fairer sex, Paul claims a preference for brunettes (though we have seen him with a redhead). VlRGinm GOGLLen • A.B, • ' Vllla Park, 111. Three years in the French Club kept " Ginny " busy enough to excuse her from serious participation in other campus activities — except the business of studying. She was interested in the Department of Soci- ology, scholastically. fls for her plans for the future, she merely says, " I plan to use my sociology m ajor to good advantage. " Plow could she have been referring to the family course she is taking? HGnRY HfiKGlUlLL • B. S. • Glmhurst, 111. " Stork, " long and lanky woman-hater (until Betty Jans), was a chemis- try major and lab assistant. Hank distinguished himself in football, basketball, and tennis, and was elected captain of the latter two in his senior year. He held offices in the " G " Club, the junior class, and was treasurer of the Student Union. He plans to augment his technical knowledge by taking graduate work. BASKETBALL AND TENNIS CAPTAIN E jOHIl HGin • A. B. • UJauwatosa, lUis. Publicity director for four years, a tremendous job in itself, John held two editorships, GLfll BARK and 1941 GLfTlS. Known as the busiest man on the campus, he tried football, S.C.fi., French and History clubs, and instigated several fast-moving committees. Johnny captured scho- lastic honors including two scholarships and hopes for one at north- western in advertising. Harriet claimed his thoughts and kept him from forgetting UJisconsin. ELM BARK AND ELMS EDITOR ROBGRT HGRRmflnn • A. B. • St. Louis, fllo. Leadership got to be a habit with Bob right afte r his freshman class presidency. The climax was in his editing, with Tiemann, the GLfll BARK this year. In intervening years he headed the College Theater, was glee club business manager to engineer the first Texas tour, and belonged, reluctantly, to the Goethe Verein. Gden Seminary is his goal next year, and after that, in his father ' s footsteps, the ministry. ELM BARK EDITOR E BGRlUYn HILD.GBRflnDT • B. S. • Chicago, 111. They all seem to know this biologist will succeed in his ambition to enter the medical profession. Here at Glmhurst they ' ve been calling him " Doc " already. Commuting from Chicago kept him too busy for most campus activities. His best recommendations are a genial disposition and a capacity for minding his own business. He has been a veritable killer when in a " Y " room game of " slap. " ARTHUR JHCOBY • A. B. • Chicago, 111. Jake ' s four years at Glmhurst had a two year intermission for work. On his return two years ago, he got right back into the swing of making new friends. He was one of the inmates of the Lodge. Scholastically, he won honor roll twice as an econ major with hopes for a business career. He has already mortgaged himself to a jeweler and plans to get right down to business after his graduation. Yvonne JORCenSen • A.B. • Chicago, 111. Yvonne, one of the fairer members of the " G " Club auxiliary, has been drafted into the ranks of practice teachers. A history major, she plans to study for a master ' s degree at Chicago. She was a member of Goethe Verein, on the Glm Bark staff, and a second soprano warbler in the glee club. She served on the UJoman ' s Union cabinet as Social chairman during her last year. RUTH KGmniTZ • B. S. • flnn flrbor, fTlich. Ruth came here on a scholarship in her freshman year, tried the Uni- versity in her junior year but found such attachment to Glmhurst that she returned to finish here. In her years here, she held membership in the S.C.fl. and, as a freshman and sophomore, in the Goethe Verein. Though studying chemistry, Ruth has no definite plans as to her pro- fession. " It depends, " she has been heard to say, " on whom I marry. " HAROLD KLIPFGL • A. B. • Glmhurst, 111. Four years on the gridiron established " Klipper " as one of the steady members of the " G " Club, fls a member of the Irion Hall Lounge fra- ternity, he was just about as steady, wasn ' t he, Clara? He plunged on through his four years in the classroom without being thrown for any great losses, now with goal to go, he is picking up the ball tossed him by Professor Ggner and the econ profs and is headed toward per- sonnel work. E NINETEEN ECCTT CNE CLARfi KOGRnGR • B. S. • Detroit, ITlich. Spending most, but not quite all (see preceding page), of her time in the biology laboratory, Clara was working toward her ambition, laboratory technician work. For extra-curricular expression, Clara turned to the glee club and to cheer leading. In her junior year beauty and personality drew votes in the Prom queen competition and Clara came through as one of the coeds in the Court of Honor. THOmfiS KTSAneS • a. B. • ■ Oak Park, 111. Tom knew all the answers, literally speaking. So much so, that he earned the Goetz scholarship and was awarded the scholarship as ranking sophomore. He was extremely active in the French Club for four years, and was elected president while a junior. Tom was a virtu- oso on the violin, a fact of which few persons were aware, ft soci- ology major, he is planning a future of teaching. FRENCH CLUB PRESIDENT ujiLLmm mne • a. b. • ■ Rome, n. y. Bill dabbled in a wide variety of activities, Club, track, Goethe Verein, Pre-The Society, S.C.A., and GLfTl BARK. His proudest mo- ment, beating even his election as track captain, was when he and Claudia led the Prom. As a student, he ' s on the road to UJeb- ster Groves, Gden, and the ministry. But his heart ' s in UJashington, D.C. His home has been at Senior Lodge, where he has been Lodge president. HEAD CHEER LEADER E RALPH mASCHniGIGR • A. B. • St. Louis, fTlo. Doc worked hard at Glmhurst, was consistently an honor student, and should graduate with high honor. Among other activities, Ralph was an officer and cabinet member of the S.C.A., a trackman, and a busi- ness manager of the GLfTl BARK. Future plans center around the ministry with study at Gden. True to his name. Doc seems destined to have permanent connections with the medical profession. JGAIIGTTG mUGLLGR • A. B. • Glmhurst, 111. Here is a little lady whose efficient work in the Student Gmployment Bureau won her promotion to fTliss Lang ' s personal office staff. But even the tremendous amount of work she did from her freshman year on could not keep " Jenny " out of activities. She sang in the glee club in her senior year and worked on the GLHl BARK the previous year. She has her eye fixed on advertising as a profession. HflZGL macGRGGOR • A. B. • UJheaton, 111. Hazel, a true-blue penny pincher (in name only), had a flair for music, fl student of voice, she was a member of Chapel Choir, and an effi- cient manager of the business end of the glee club in her senior year. She was a four year member of the French Club and on the GLiTl BflRK staff. Hazel looks to a future as a teacher of Gnglish. LUGLLA mcCLURG • A. B. • Villa Park, 111. Coming from the U. of I. in her sophomore year, Lue moved quietly about the campus leaving personality and pulchritude in her wake. Her quiet conquest was climaxed in the Prom election in 1940. Lue reigned as lovely queen. Deglamorized in every day collegiate rou- tine, Lue is an economics major hoping to qualify some day as some- one ' s private secretary. ITleanwhile, society of " 27 " claimed her when Harold was not around. PROM QUEEN BflIRD OBGRfTlAnn • A. B. • Wheeling, IJJ. Va. Here is the man who, by acclamation, won the vice-presidency of the senior class — " Obe " . It took a burst of genius in his last years to compensate for some loss while social whirling of the earlier years, but Baird demonstrated he had it in him when he went to work with a will at his history major. Track and musical organizations were his extra-curricular activities. Rnd that fatal feminine attraction! BfiRBARA PILLinGGR • A. B. • Lombard, 111. Barb is among the best groomed bits of femininity that frequented " pre- cinct 27. " She is an econ major, and no one dares predict her future, not even Barb. She belonged to the French Club and in her junior year was Social Chairman of the UJomen ' s Union. She had many friends among members of her own sex, and we might add that she has captured the heart of not a few Glmhurst men. DGfln PLflSSmfln • a. B. • Centralia, 111. " Stinky, " the only German major to graduate this year, left Glmhurst for his junior year, but returned to the fold as a senior. He was an im- portant part of the paid library decoration for two years, and also worked on the GLfll BflRK. He hustled behind scenes in the College Theater and in addition took part in several productions. Dean, a definite blond, currently has a flair for blondes. NINETEEN ECCTr ONE Sflm POBnnZ , • B. S. • lUakarusa, Ind. In the band, but only there, " Poby " surely tooted his own horn — and a mighty good one, at that. He was one of the sparks that rekindled an interest in the band. Glee club and Chapel Choir— and some choir directing at Illelrose Park— claimed some more of his time, nothing, however, kept him from scholastic honors, even while he worked as laboratory assistant. JTLedicine is his prospective field. BIOLOGY LABORATORY ASSISTANT jnnice pulsg • a. b. • eimhurst, iii. Janice, one of two, brought a third into the picture— Barney, and joined " 6 " Club auxiliary. Coming to Glmhurst on a scholarship, she re- ceived the Schneider scholarship in her junior year, and should grad- uate with high honor. Janice was active in the French Club, Chapel Choir, and was business manager of the glee club. She will be a teacher, but we wonder if Barney approves. GLEE CLUB BUSINESS MANAGER JGfln PULSe • A. B. • Glmhurst, 111. Jean, the younger half of this confusing partnership, lists one of her major interests as music. Her accomplishments in this field include abilities in piano, organ, and voice, ft member of the Chapel Choir and the UJomen ' s Glee Club, she was the accompanist of the latter for her first two years. Jean plans to attend business college to pre- pare herself to be an able secretary. RICHARD RASCHC • A. B. • Louisville, Ky. Almost everyone voted when Dick was swept into the Student Union presidency. Cveryone knew the S. U. store manager who had been a class president and treasurer, star baseball pitcher, basketball player, Goethe Verein, Pre-The Society and S.C.A., Chapel Choir, and glee club member, later chosen the " representative senior. " The ministry is his goal, via the philosophy major route. STUDENT UNION PRESIDENT E nORlTlAn ROBGRTS • A. B. • lUebster Groves, mo. Roberts earned the name " Crash " in his heroic ventures onto the Lodge sleeping porch. History was his major, the ministry his objective, and Grace Seybold his interest. He was one of the reliables on UJichman ' s crew. He spent some of his time with the glee club. Chapel Choir, S.C.A., and Goethe Verein, as well as three years as bench warmer for the baseball squad. DOROTHY ROe B. S. • eimhurst, 111. The popular, ambitious president of the UJomen ' s Union and vice- president of women for the Student Union deserved all the hard earned honors that were hers. Scholastically, she maintained a straight honor roll record. Ulath was her major — she practiced in teaching it at York High. Dee was also an untiring committee woman, member of the French Club, and secretary of the senior class. WOMEN ' S UNION PRESIDENT HCRBGRT SflDLGR • A. B. • Glmhurst, 111. Herb got a late but fast start at Glmhurst when, in his first year here, he served as advertising manager for the GLfDS. It was his first ven- ture in the field of economics, which became his major. He had a naturally argumentative nature which he used freely to enliven classes that might otherwise have seemed dull and monotonous. His talent for discussion will come in handy in the legal profession. BflRIlHflRD SCHIGRHORn • A. B. • Des Plaines, 111. For three years manager of the book store, Barney developed a wide acquaintance among students, who also knew him as the cycling com- muter for two years. He edited the 1939 GLfllS, served on the Social Life Council and belonged to the French Club. He captured scholas- tic honors, and, if that were not enough, found time for Janice. He plans to do statistical work. BOOK STORE MANAGER E GGORG6 SCHL6R • A. B. • Boonville, ITlo. fi familiar figure behind the counter at the commons, " Codger " has worked his way through a four year pre-theological course. He plans to enter Gden next semester. But rather than become a horn-rimmed scholar, George went into extra curricular activities of the Pre-The Society, the S.C.fl., and intra-murals, which he managed in his senior year. In class, George majored in history and had a reputation as the " brain " in Greek. E DOROTHY Simmons . a. B. • eimhurst, III. Another transfer student who found herself in an enviable position of leadership, Dottie came to Glmhurst from the University of Kansas City. Incidentally, she had something to say about leading the men of the campus, fls a French major, she belonged to the French Club, serving as president during her senior year. She was also a member of the College Theater. After graduation, she hopes to enter business college. FRENCH CLUB PRESIDENT NINETEEN ECKTT CNE BGTTY Smejfl . B.S. • Bensonville, 111. Upon her graduation, " Smej " hopes to enter Billings Hospital, Chicago University, for another step on the road to work as a pathological tech- nician. At eimhurst she majored in biology. Rot so interested in study to exclude other essentials of college education, Betty entered vigorously into work in the UJomen ' s Union, the glee club, the GLfll BARK, and the Goethe Verein. One of her major interests was athletics. LAVGRne SOLBGRG • A. B. • Chicago, 111. Twice Sol held offices in the College Theater in addition to appearing in several of the productions. But her real popularity and position on the campus came out of her participation in campus social life. She majored in sociology and took enough work in education to fall into the ranks of the cadets, practice teachers. It is in the teaching field that Sol ' s professional ambitions lie. GRACG STGVGnSOn • A. B. • Hinsdale, 111. " Stevie " spent her last two years at GImhurst. She had many outside interests we guess, for some of us didn ' t get to know her as well as we would have liked. Her major was Gnglish and she, too, was kept busy with practice teaching which should prepare her for her future profession. Gracie seemed always to be having a grand time and we wish her lots of luck. KGnnGTH TAYLOR • A. B. • Skokie, 111. Three years as proctor over South Hall freshmen shed upon Ken all the friendships and enmities bound to arise from so thankless a task.

Rot even about the peace of 1950! Yet it does seem inconceivable that we should seek war and frown upon anyone who seeks the formulas of peace. Hot the formulas of betrayal but the formulas that can prevent this eter- nal recurrence of UJorld UJars. UJar has yet to prove itself a boon to mankind and has yet to prove that it can solve any of Amer- ica ' s problems. Today it does take courage to suggest how nations should go about arranging the future of peace. Your friends won ' t like it. People will be annoyed. But when this is all over and sanity returns to the world, there is an excellent chance that you may be looked upon as a true hero of UJorld UJar 11. If you have that courage, we would like to hear from you. lUrite to WORLD PEACEWAYS, INC. 103 Park Avenue, New York City HAMMERSP IITH-KORTMEYER CO. Engravers Printers Milwaukee, Wisconsin i
