I 1 43 The 1943 Elms Here is a cross section of life on Elmhurst ' s compus; this is on attempt to depict Elmhurst ' s spirit, its beauty, its friendships, its faculty, its students— that is what life consists of during the days at college. Boy and girl friends work and play together, chat, sing, and talk over their problems. Pre-the ' s discuss dialectic theology, girls discuss their new outfits, dorm fellows keep their talks secret, and the faculty discuss current events, their assignments, and their students. aWHURST PUBLIC LIBRARY ELMHURST.

They have the opportunity to give a student a basis for living, not merely being a success, but for living life to its fullest. Character and personality is formed at college, and the faculty plays on important part in this process. Being a professor means mastery of subject, ability to teach that subject, and understanding the student, his accomplishments, his difficulties, and his problems. The students discover that the professors are human beings and not mere theorizers. The faculty, the backbone of the school. 17 Dr. Lehmann is our guide and director at Elmhurst and a capable one he is . . . now serving in his fifteenth year as president . . . kind, yet firm . . . always available for a talk and advice to some student who finds college life adjustment a bit difficult ... his chapel ad- dresses are encouraging and inspir- ing . . . will gladly offer guidance to any individual regarding his voca- tion . . .

The four classes, whether they be freshman, sophomore, junior or senior consist of individual class personalities. At Elmhurst we have the bashful freshman, the sophomore who knows his way around, the junior upon whose shoulders fall the bulk of campus activities, and the senior who is concerned with the intellectual side of life and trivialities have no longer a place in his world. Each year holds a separate place in our memories— the first is a process of new acquaintances and new adjustments the second consists of instructing the freshman on how to get along in college —the third means the junior Prom with all of its social gaiety— the last year means putting the final touches on one ' s college education,- it is the last look at four swell years at school. 33 aWHURST PUBLIC LIBRARY ELMHURST.

Wilson Andrew J. Wolfe Lillian Zarcoff Time out for extracurriculars No people, it isn ' t all blood end tears, toil and textbooks around these parts. Every once in a while we lift our noses from the printed line, put our hornrimmed glasses into their coffins, and grope our nearsighted way to the gym for a glimpse of another side of life— to a dance, a theater production, or a basketball game. There are clubs for all sorts of talents and interests, for the journalists. . . for the theological minded . . . for the musicians . . for the athletes ... for the scientific minds. In our more genteel moments we drop over to Prexy ' s or Dean Staudt s for a spot of orange pekoe and hospitality. We must not forget the activity that plays such a major part with all of us — the date with that special person! 55 1942-43 The gym is an important-looking building labelled " Know ye not that your body is the temple? " and is never so full of temples as when the old juke box starts throwing hHarry James and Dick Jurgens around. Th is versatile structure is also a theater. In the evening it can pull in its jumping mats and pretend to be anything from Bornum and Bailey to the ghost of vaudeville. It begins in the fall by mixing up a new batch of freshmen at the Freshman Mixer. Calvin 56 Th en comes the H omecoming ex- travaganza starting off with the freshman hat holocaust and the rah- rah revel by firelight. When the bonfire has reduced Elmhurst s shrub- | bery and soap boxes to a common stuff, the crowd is mas hed into the gym for the revue. The victory knock on-wood parade occurs the next day and float committees stick to- geth er witfi paste . . . then we yell our tonsils smooth at the football game. Dances this year hove been of the short skirt, see-you-on-the-train variety because a little man with a cookie-duster decided he wasn t cut out for wall paper. At the Hal- loween dance people wore the decorations. Sophomores went Bo- hemian at the Artists ' Ball, with checkered table cloths and gold frames. The only things missing were the artists. Then there was the frosh dance and the SU Let-down party after exams hod driven our brains down into our feet. The College theater staged a Spotlight dance where a little camera man snuck about and recollections Homecoming donee. caught you at your ghastliest. And the Coed donee, where the boys reversed the charges. The Theater was responsible for a lot of wet handkerchiefs in " Letters to Lucerne " , and for lugg- ing students down to the big city for a taste of " Arsenic and Old Lace " and to see Stage Door. An assortment of stag informols filled up Saturday nights. Stags and does eyed each other askance from opposite sides of the dance floor, and South hall had a bull session on how to remedy the shrinking violet strain in modern youth. Let us not neglect the boys behind the E pins. A brilliant season was started by Carthage beating us at the hlomecoming game, which put on end to the strike dream. Vic- tories we had, too. Laurels to the basketball lads who knocked the wheat out of Wheoton twice, once on their own brand new basketball floor. And laurels to Lichtenheld who won a race with himself. A serious note was felt when we had the fare-well party for the 22 Army Reserve Corps men — even that had its better moments — when hdalbe song Brunton ' s song she had composed for the fellows. Electric light bills mounted as Elm Bark and Elms addicts kept the Old hHall alive late into the night throughout the year — there campus events were put to print. One of the headlines was, Mary Lois Dramm, Prom queen — the beauty choice of four classes. March brought March winds, April brought April showers. May brought finals and graduation. 57 T Student union: left to right: H i I I e b r a n d, president Braun, Jans, Zeiler, Bickel, Huboi. In front: Blomberg, Clevenger, Haefner.

Although articles of various viewpoints are printed the editorial board maintains a definite policy. It maintains that students cannot seclude themselves from the problems in the world, that they must not accept authority blindly but must do some critical thinking. For five years the Student Refugee committee has functioned as a student- faculty organization, bringing student ref- ugees to our campus for the continuation of their interrupted studies. Since the war has caused dislocation of students within our own country it is to the special needs of American citizens of Japanese parentage that the com- mittee has responded this year.

The athletic department headed by Pete Langhorst undoubtedly had some misgivings about the sports schedule for the year when during the summer many Elmhurst men were going on into a bigger game. Dog- gedly Pete decided to hold to the schedule for the various sporting events as long as there were enough men on the campus for a team. Teach Johnson now had her chance to push women ' s sports ahead as well as the job of hardening the coeds to the rigors of military life. Facing these new and strange problems the program of sports, intra and inter- mural got under way. 77 c ieer for Elmkurst Bright and early in the fall Elmhurst footb all men got to work to build the finest team we had ever seen. Prospects were extremely bright. Plenty of the old hands were back and although there weren ' t too many new boys out what there were showed promise. The campus finally felt that they had a sure winner. Then strange things happened. Perhaps the poor weather can be blamed or the fact that the first opponent of the season was a tough one. What ever it was, the Jays dropped the opener t-o North Cen- tral 16-0. The fans were a little amazed but did not lose faith. Pete ran his boys through their paces during the next week and then on Satur- day, after receiving an extra dose of vitamin B1 during the half, Elmhurst beat Mission hlouse 20-6. We really began to think we had something after the next gome. Looking like maddened eagles instead of Blue Jays the Elmhurst team romped through, ove r, and around a stunned Eureka eleven. The score was 26-7. Next week was hHomecoming and the prospects were very good for the second hHomecoming victory in as many years. The theme of the day was Victory. The Indians from Carthage seemed to lack due respect for the hHomecoming festivi- ties, however. They went on the war- path and scalped the fighting palefaces from Elmhurst to the tune of 1 4-0. A bitter defeat for the team and the would-be strikers. The Jays sought revenge the next week at Wheaton. It was hHome- coming there, too. Elmhurst fans, un- dismayed by the last game crowded into the Wheaton stadium only to see a bewildered team of Blue Jays — now resembling battered little sparrows — hum- bled by a defeat of 32-0. Disgruntled members of the team did not have too much satisfaction in the 12-0 beating handed Concordia College on the next Saturday. All was forgiven, however, and the cry On to hHeidel- berg " echoed across the campus. The cry was rather hollow though because transportaion to the school was almost nil due to orders from the government. The team got there and later wished they hadn ' t. Offense and defense were shattered, the forces dispersed, and the Princes of hHeidelberg crushed the Jays 52-6. Last row: Vertovec, Papadakis, J. Covins, McKinley, Dillon, De Rose, Longhorst. Third row: Potheol, Postulo, Ahlf, Melgoord, Stockert, Abbott, Kolwitz, hHorst. Second Row: Rosbock, Wolf, Friz, Ortenzi, Bullard, Cunningham. First row: Mernitz, Aubuchon, Ancona, Froetscher, Borcy, Clevenger, Tuttle. Hit em high — hiarry hHorst. This game was scheduled to be the last but Pete gave the boys on extra gome with Morton Junior college. Everyone expected a pushover except Morton, of course. Langhorst use d his frosh and sophs to feel out material for next year i and they almost gave the game to Morton but finally managed to emerge victorious by a score of 1 8-1 3. Leaving out the bright shots of indi- vidual playing that was the season. Elmhurst had some of the best material possible but as often happens an unknown quality was present and shattered every- thing. Our opponents outscored us 140 to 76. In the four defeats suffered Elm- hurst failed to score a point. What hap- pened nobody knows. That the boys did their darndest there is little doubt but it just did not seem to be enou gh. Oh, well, why worry,- let ' s look ahead to the next season — whenever that may be. A description of the football season would not be quite complete without telling about a few of the outstanding individual players. Throughout the sea- son Gil McKinley ' s power and punting proved an asset in every victory and a threat in defeat. ZarcoFf, a former enemy from Wheaton, played his heart out against that school and during the season proved a smart and deceptive ball carrier. Papadakis showed himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the game and was rewarded with an honorary berth on the Greek Ail-American team. The Gavins brothers were in there fighting all the time as well as Postulo, Dillon, h arry hHorst, and others of the backfield. In the line, plov was dominated by boys like Goptain Mernitz, " Dutch " Froet- scher, Ortenzi, Ancono, Aubuchon, Barcy, Jans, Vertovec, Glevenger, and others who really did a fine job of bearing the brunt of the season. Many of the fellows are now doing their bit for a new coach called Uncle Sam and if their football playing is any indication, the Japs and Nazis have a job on their hands! .1 Tke basket makers The basketball season got started with practice sessions right after the close of the football season. Prospects were fair but that ' s all. Three regulars from the season before returning — Ahlf, Bizer, and Frego. The rest of the team was a mystery even to Pete. Two boys who had distinguished themselves in other fields came in to fill the two vacant positions. Vertovec and Gregson were the new prodigees. The team had not quite hit its stride when it went down before Valpo in the season opener. They came back though to avenge the football defeat by Wheaton to beat Wheaton in the game which dedicated a new gym at the rival school. The boys made it two straight over Aurora and then suffered defeat at the hands of North Central. Eureka fell in a close contest and Aurora was swamped by the highest score of the season. Valpo came visiting and again was victorious. Eureka got revenge for the earlier defeat and Wheaton tried but failed. Carthage again took some scalps and Concordia was forced to take the brunt of the Jays anger. Elmhurst took two beatings in a row from DeKolb and the North Central. The season ended victoriously with Q win over Concordia. 81 Those wko figkt to win Not only the first five scored all these points but there were o group of fellows who did a fine job during the season although they didn ' t see as much action. Boys like Laning, Wilson Wentzel, Kee- saer, Beisch, end hHaefner worked hard to bring Elmhurst through to a good season. The final scores could have been a little different, but an average of 46 points a game is not bad at all.

Besides holding the crown for high scoring, he was high point man in over half of the games — having a score once of 29 points in one game for the season high in any game. Frega, who is now in service, was probably the smoothest player seen in these parts for many a year. We can t forget his angle shots and that hair which was never out of place. Then there was Gunner Ahlf. hHow does he do it? — asked a visiting coach. That is just the way Gunner played, always in there when he was most needed. Gregson came off the baseball dia- mond long enough to prove he knew something about basketball. A steady boy who could handle the ball and feed it to the basket. Vertovec, or Vitz carried on after the football season and really show ed some of the jokers he could do it. He was missed in the lost three games after he had gone by way of the draft board. The subs were always on hand to relieve tired regulars and take over after one of the fellows had been a little too rough. In this role Jays had four old hands with at least a year ' s experi- ence behind them. Wentzel got the coll in ten games, Laning went in for his share as did Wilson who played in every game. hJaefner also did his work. Two freshman showed possibilities for next year if they ore around. Keesaer who worked in seven to earn eight points and Beisch who got seven points in three games. Honorary Captain Ahlf. 83 kave a komer Before winter had even begun to think of stopping a few enterprising fellows started to warm up the arms and legs in preparation for the coming baseball season. With Coach Langhorst as a sort of guiding hand, the team, riddled by losses from graduation and from the men who had left for the armed services, started to round up. With a few old hands like Capt. Abele, now squatting behind the plate, Pfautsch, coming into the infield, Bizer out in center, and Gregson on the mound the Jays hope to pull their woes out of the proverbial " dumps " . A fair amount of good material was found in the freshman class and a couple of seniors finally found out that they could play ball. The boys were all set and rarin ' to go but it seemed that old man weather was agin ' em. Not until just a few days be- fore the scheduled opener were the Jays able to get any outdoor practice sessions in. The opening game with Lake Forest was cancelled, again because of the weather. Then some snow popped up in the middle of April and again the ploy was stopped. About this time Pete found the duties of trying to coach three different sports at one time and then trying to keep up with the physical education classes just a little bit strenuous so the baseball team went under a new coach, Mr. Tiedemann. The Jays finally got in some games and the first couple showed some weak spots but weren ' t too discouraging. Playing DeKalb first there and then here Elmhurst dropped the two contests 8-2 and 8-7. The next team to meet the blue and white were the boys from Concordia college who visited our campus and were defeated 10-6. Prospects look brighter and hopes are up for the rest of the season. Record Breakers The track team got under way early in the year in spite of weather and Uncle Sam. Gradually, day by day, more and more prospects came out and a track squad was being whipped into shape for its first meet with Morton Junior college. There weren ' t too many veterans out, but fellows like Koshewa, Jans, Mernitz, Clevenger, Beecken hod all seen action in previous season ' s and could be counted on again. With fairly good freshman prospects the hopes for the season seem pretty bright. The Jays won easily over the first opponent, Morton, and immediately start- ed to work for their next meet. Th IS was a triangular meet with Wheaton and North Central at North Central. The boys must have had an off day or the prospect of Easter the next day was a demoralizer because they seemed to have to work hard even for the third place they received. Just in passing I will mention that Wheaton won the meet. The weather man again played a big role in the development of the track squad. But barring future snow storms or zero weatrier in May the track team will run through its schedule: Wheaton, North Central, Concordia, and Elmhurst at Wheaton, In spite of the adverse conditions brought on by war and the various schools dropping sports and losing players because of it, Elmhurst has decided to go through with the now traditional Elmhurst Intercollegiate Invitational. Al- though the field is expected to be smaller Pete has indicated that there would possibly be fourteen or sixteen schools entered. As yet the definite schools entered are not known nor ore all plans completed but on May 8 the Ell will go on, rain or shine and let ' s hope it isn t snow! Left to right: DeRose, Laning, Le Gros, Kucera, Wentzel, Coach Arends. Across tke net After the usual tussle with adverse weather conditions the tennis team got to work with the old master. Prof. Arends, whipping them into shape. There was plenty of material to work with, surpris- ingly enough, and the prospects for the tennis squad are brighter than those of any other spring sport. With two regulars back from lost year, Plesscherand Wentzel and a good crop of good steady solid players like Laning, Kucera, Le Gros, De Rose, Noffke, a veteran of three years, and Magnall the Joys look like a pretty good bet for the year. Schedule — De Kolb, Wheaton, Illinois Normal, Illinois Wesleyan, Wheaton, there, two games each. Probably the most hard hit team from the standpoint of losses of men is the golf team. Every man of last year ' s regulars is gone. Haefner is in the army, Klose is at another school, hHermonn is in the service as is Pelcher. The only man who sow experience last year and is returning this year is Ev Seegers, a junior. Ev not only has the job of playing but also of managing and sort of coaching the boys along. So far all the boys out for the team ore juniors and according to Seegers look like good material. There ore the Shall- cross brothers Ray and Kenny, Bob hHunt- sha, Joe McKay, and Seegers. As yet no matches have been played but several are scheduled with DeKolb, Northwestern, Bradley, Chicago University, and Illinois tech. 87 PflTflOOIZf THf fllUS flDVfRTISfflS On students ' " lists of where to buy These are the places ranking high COMPLETE FURNISHINGS FOR THE HOME John M.
