Margaret Akai Business Manager James 0. Schneider Advertising Manager Steve A. Madi Circulation Manager Cliff J. Janssen Faculty Adviser C. C. Arends The Nineteen Hundred Forty Eight Elms PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENT UNION OF ELMHURST COLLEGE ELMHURST, ILLINOIS Dedication ' J. HIS thirtieth volume of the Elms is proudly and honorably dedicated to a true pioneer in the field of education. Dr. Timothy Lehmann. Born in Russia, Dr. Lehmann came to the United States when he was still a young- ster. He has even had to change his birthdate, since the Gregorian calendar was used in Russia. He graduated from Elmhurst College in 1899, and from Eden Theological Seminary in 1902. It was during his days at the University of J irginia. that he met Martha Menzel. whom he later married. Dr. Lehmann has had many pastor- ships, which include churches in Maryland. I irginia. and Ohio. It was in 1928 that Elmhurst College opened its portals to the new President. Dr. Lehmann. He came with high recommendations. During his nineteen years of presidency many changes have occurred. It was in 1930 that Elmhurst became co-educational, and in 1931. Elmhurst was recognized by the North Central Association. That was a memorable day. for the studeFits paraded through town and the band met the president at the station. Dr. Lehmann has always been interested in the community. Here in Elmhurst. he is a charter member of the Kiwanis Club, a member of the Du Page United Charities, and the Family U elfare Association, and also has served on the draft board. He has also pioneered in the Elmhurst Musical Concert Series. It is not only in the community that he gave his spare moments, but also to the students. He will be remembered for his addresses at chapel attendance, which have been inspiring and encouraging. Too. Dr. Lehmann has established the Freshman program and orientation from sheer hazing to integration. Although there were only one hundred and fifty in the student body in 1930, at- tendance today is six hundred and fifty eight: a number that has grown each year, just as Dr. Lehmann has grown with Elmhurst. Ready to retire at the age of sixty- five. Dr. Lehmann will never cease to seek knowledge and education. 6 Timothy L. Lehman, D.

CONTENTS AUTUMN . . .13 WINTER 55 SPRING 89 ADVERTISING 123 ' Tis education forms the common mind, Just as the twig is bent, The tree ' s inclined. Alexander Pope The future lies ahead of us as college students. The world is slowly being restored to its former position, and as Pope states, every common mind, which includes we students, seeks education. Education has many tasks: training the intelligence, broadening the mind, and teaching the techniques on which modern civilization is based. It may do all this yet never reach our central problem. The real issue is whether men are to be ruled by power, pleasure, their own creations, or by goodness, beauty and reason. People see the value of power in science and economics. Certainly — but of what use are they, unless men know how to use them rightly? Power and wealth go hand in hand, for good or evil. In our world we have unlimited power; we need an education which teaches us not merely how to use that power but how to use it well. To build up in every man and woman a solid core of spiritual life, which will resist the attrition of everyday existence in our mechanized world — that is the most difficult and important task of all learning. Take hold of vour education, students, and bend your twigs rightly. 9 Bright lights gleaming into the night from the much- used, friendly and beautiful Memorial Library. Across the green and spacious lawn is popular South Halh where all the pretty co-eds dwell. The morrow was a bright September morn; The earth was beautiful as if newborn; There was that nameless splendor everywhere. That wild exhilaration in the air, W Inch makes the passers in the city street Congratulate each other as they meet. LONGFELLOW AUTUMN 13 A MESSAGE FROM OUR NEW PRESIDENT DR. H. W. DINKMEYER To a stranger Elmhurst is a lovely place, with arching elms and spacious lawns — an idyllic spot. To those on the campus it is something more — an atmosphere, a quality, a spirit. When you attend school in these days of swollen enrollments, it may take y ou weeks or months before you feel at home. Not so at Elmhurst. As soon as you set foot on the campus you fee] that you belong. You are a person in whom others are interested. Good will, understanding, comaraderie and mutuality come naturally. There is equality, democracy, a feeling of home. The people you meet at Elmhurst have sterling qualities; they come from good homes. They are substantial and open-minded. Associations are rich and friendships become real and abiding. There is something winsome and challeng- ing about these people. There is wholesome fun, fascinating fellowship and rev- erent scholarship. There is also a definite purposefulness. These young people know what they are about. Although they enjoy many diversions, they are serious minded. They call forth the best in you — they count on you. There is a spirit here that makes y ou want to project yourself into the larger world of usefulness and service. Elmhurst has something — unique, indefinable, indispensable for this day. The pages of this book will try to convey some of these intangibles to you. But you really have to share in all of this in order to experience and treasure the high character of this remarkable Elmhurst. Dr. H. W. Dinkmever 14 Seated: Timothy L. Lehmann, Ervvin R.

Their responsibilities and activities are many and varied. Since the influx of many new students on campus, especially during the post war period, their tasks have been doubled. Many new and various accommodations had to be supplied, such as additional housing facilities, staff members, personnel, and classroom equipment, since the college has grown to six hundred and fifty students this year. The Board assumes the responsibility of bettering the edu- cation of each student. This year, with the retirement of Mr. Paul A. Jans, the chairmanship was accepted by Reverend Erwin R. Koch, of St. Paul, Minnesota. With the retirement of Dr. Lehmann as college president, the Board had to choose a successor. They have done well in choosing Dr. H. W. Dinkmeyer of Bethany Church of Chicago, for his deep sincerity and rich friendliness have already won the admiration and support of the entire student body. Although a new Business Manager has not been secured, the Board has placed Dr. Lehmann and Dr. Dinkmeyer temporarily in that position, in their respective terms. Today, an even closer and friendlier relationship between the Board and the students has been attained. Just as the college grows in standing and in knowl- edge, so too, does the Board of Directors grow in their endeavor to administer to the needs of every individual on campus. 15 DEAN OF THE COLLEGE ALFRED FRIEDLI, M. A. Alfred Friedli. a jovial, understanding gentle- man, comes to Elmhurst College as the new dean. Dean Friedli has done much in the edu- cational field and Elmhurst College is indeed proud of its new dean. He graduated from Central Wesleyan Academy and received his A.B. degree from Central Weslevan College. He continued in graduate studv at the Uni- versity of Missouri and Illinois, and was awarded the Master s degree in Sociology at Washington University. He was former super- intendent of schools in arrenton, Missouri, and assistant principal at various high schools in Missouri, aside from numerous other posi- tions he has held. Dean Friedli has already won every stud- ent ' s heart with his warm friendship and understanding; which he has time to extend to all who come to see him. besides finding time to teach Social and Adolescent Psychol- ogy. DEAN OF STUDENTS GENEVIEVE STAUDT, M. A. mum L . Although Dean Staudt has now been the victim of added responsibilities, as dean of all students, she remains the same patient and understanding person that everyone has known her to be. It is not only the co-eds of South Hall who go in to see her, but every student on campus. Dean Staudt is always willing and readv to be of assistance, whether it be about studies or personal matters. Aside from the added responsibilities that have been heaped upon her. Dean Staudt finds time to be Assistant Professor of Education, with practice teaching schedules to be made out. and the great task of preparing future teachers for the teaching profession. FACULTY C.

Mr. Ted Krohne, amiable Public Relations Director. 22 PEOPLE YOU To keep such a large institution as Elmhurst College functioning properly, requires more than faculty and students. Such an organi- zation must depend on a host of other workers of various kinds to perform duties essential to its running. These people might be called the unsung heroes of the campus. First, let us peek into the Advance Office to meet the people who publicize Elmhurst. Here we find Mr. Ted Krohne, the Public Re- lations and Promotion Director, whose re- sponsibility is extensive. Assisting him are Mrs. T. Fletcher Smith, bookkeeper; and Miss Jane Beckman. his secretary, who also helps Rev. C. F. Schmidt, the Alumni secretary, keep the alumni informed of important events on campus. The General Office provides the setting lor the work carried on b the Administration. Here we find Mrs. A. Schaeffer. secretary to the President. Mrs. E. Newman. Miss Leveille, and Mrs. Cummings busily engaged in the work of their office, which includes registration of students, issuance of grades, and welcoming visitors. Dr. Timothy Lehmann. the acting Business Manager. SHOULD KNOW The responsible task of handling the college finances had fallen to Dr. Timothy Lehmann until his retirement, when he was replaced by Dr. H. Dinkmeyer, both acting as Business Manager in addition to their tasks as Presi- dent. Their capable assistants in shouldering the task, are Mrs. Gunzel, secretary to the Business Manager; Mrs. F. J. Cosgrove, who helps each student plan his yearly budget; Mr. Brown, whose duty is to balance the books; and Miss Jane Davis, clerical helper. Next we note the college nurses to whom students can go for ready medical aid. Stu- dents Martha Waters, Jean Thornton, and Ruth Johnsen constitute the nursing staff. Now we turn our attention to Mrs. Morine Teichen, secretary to the School of Music, who handles all the finances, correspondence, and schedules of the music department. Residents of South Hall are guided and given counsel bv the house mother, Mrs. E. Krivulka. while Reverend and Mrs. Koenig give advice Upper: Business office staff: Mrs. Gunzel, Mrs. F.

To provide food for hungry Elmhurst stu- dents, a capable staff functions in the Com- mons. Working under the supervision of Miss Alma Shriver, dietitian, Mrs. Martha Ladiges. Mrs. Amelia Wagner, Miss Grace Marwood, and Mrs. Nellie Caldwell prepare dailv meals throughout the school vear. Over-night guests at the Commons are welcomed and " made at Home " bv Mrs. E. Voigt, Hostess and Matron. No institution can function smoothly with- out an efficient maintenance crew. Elmhurst has just such a crew, headed by Emil Vonder- Ohe, and assisted by Armin Wuennecke and Lester Wiemerslage in the various tasks. South Hall and Irion Hall arc kept spotless on all occasions through (he efforts of Mr. and Mrs. liirl Mooney.

The Class of nineteen hundred and fifty-one came to Elmhurst College to begin their col- lege career with a bang. Thev showed the faculty and upperclassmen that thev meant business and they did not waste any time in proving it. When presented with the task of producing the annual Freshman mixer, they definitely showed themselves to the best ad- vantage. They discovered too, that college was not all seriousness, and soon they took upon them- selves to obtain, with the help of their older friends, as much as possible out of the social life which Elmhurst College has to offer. Officers yvere not elected until the second semester, which caused the class to be slowed down considerably in their group contribution to the school. The big job facing the Frosh was the pro- duction of the Freshman Hop. which was given shortly after the Spring vacation in March. Having spent one year getting acquainted with college life, the Class of ' 51 is ready, willing, and capable of assuming their future responsibilities at Elmhurst College. The Class of " 51 A duel by MerriLyn Hartmann and Gene Kuehl climaxes the freshman mixer.

Miss Marie Hullcranz QUEEN OF HOMECOMING HOMECOMING OF 1947 The theme of Harvest Homecoming, which brightened the campus with its warm mellow hues, made vivid once more in the minds of returning alumni the memories of their own student davs at Elmhurst. Corn shocks, horns of plentv, pumpkins, and brightly colored leaves were used to decorate the buildings. Large signs of welcome appeared everywhere. The traditional prize for the most attractive and appropriate decorations was awarded to the Philosophy Club and the Pre-The Society for their decoration of the Commons building. The decorators had brought the Autumn harvest to Elmhurst ' s very doorsteps. The alumni began the festivities Friday evening with a banquet in the Commons dining hall. There the renewal of old friend- ships fostered the feeling which was to make the weekend a success. The Homecoming Queen and her Court made their first official appearance at this event. After the banquet the alumni joined students and guests as they watched the Freshmen make their way across the campus in their ever impressive torch parade. Their pride and satisfaction in the huge bonfire they had built and guarded for weeks, was felt by all as the flames lit up the entire campus. The traditional bonfire blazes from Freshman torches and casts its glow on the Pep Rally. HOMECOMING COURT: Elaine Bloxom, Mary Louise Olsson, MerriLyn Hartmann, Loretta Llewellyn, Marie Hullcranz, queen; Martha Green, Betty Johnson, Sue Esthus. 33 HOMECOMING The old Elmhurst spirit, renewed bv a Pep Rally around the honfire, was brought to a climax by the Homecoming Revue which followed . In keeping with Elmhurst tradition, this year ' s musical comedy, " Elmhurst Out- bursts " , written bv a student, Dan Lehmann. and directed bv C. C. Arends, referred to typical Elmhurst situations. The theme and the catchy tunes that ran through the show brought forth laughter and applause from the appreciative audience which filled the gym to overflowing. The Revue was acclaimed by all as another outstanding success for the Elm- hurst College Theater. On Saturday, the student All-Stars, for the first time in three vears. were victorious over the Alumni in their yearly Saturday morning football game. Although the big game with North Central in the afternoon ended in a defeat for Elmhurst, the spirit of the guests and students was not dampened. During the half, the Homecoming Queen, Miss Marie Hullcranz, and her Court were presented by the President of the Student Union. After words of welcome by President Lehmann and the Queen, the crowd joined in singing the Alma Mater. After the game, the dormitories, lodge, and veterans housing, opened their doors to stu- dents, friends, and alumni, who took this op- portunitv to examine the living quarters of the campus residents.

HOMECOMING " Injun Summer " , as depicted by McCutch- eon ' s famous cartoon, was the setting for the annual Homecoming Dance Saturday night. Against this colorful background, couples danced to the music of Dick Long ' s Orchestra, in a gym again filled to capacity. Refreshments and entertainment rounded out a full evening of pleasure for all. The alumni and students gathered in St. Peter ' s Chuch Sunday morning for the Home- coming service, at which, Rev. Edwin J. Koch delivered the sermon. As the afternoon sun traveled westward, the strains of beautiful music drifted from the College Chapel. The Community Chorus, Polyhymnia, and newly formed Men ' s Glee Club did their part in making this closing event of the weekend beautiful and impressive. The new members of the Music Faculty also added their individ- ual talents to the annual Musicale. With the strains of the Alma Mater still ringing in his ears, each went back to his every- day tasks, carrying with him a golden harvest of memories of the 1947 Harvest Homecoming at Elmhurst College.

Not all evenings are spent studying, as ean be testified by the fun and hilarious times to be had on week-ends, on ve old Elmhurst College Campus. Hags and Stags riding broomsticks through the eery sky came to rest at " ye olde barn ' ' lor the annual Halloween Party. Upon arrival, all Itinmakers were promptly greeted by a host of goblins and grinning jaek-o " lanterns. The barn-like quality of the gym was further as- certained bv the addition of a hayloft-plus the hay, corn stalks, and ears of corn. To refresh those who wearied of dancing and romping in the hay, cold, spicy cider was served. Then when the hands on the clock reached 11:30, all the would-be spirits disappeared. All the Daisy Maes snagged their Lil Abners and dragged them to the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Pigtails, short skirts, patched trousers, and cabbage corsages dominated the scene: while the dancing and singing were done in true Dogpatch style. The Sophomore semi-formal dance found couples dancing dreamily in a land of enchant- ment. The plain brick interior of the gym 36 was transformed into a forest-like maze; while the air eharged with an elfish atmosphere. The Prince and Princess, Sue Esthus and Steve Csutoros, reigned majestically over this par- ticular realm of the " Enchanted Forest " . To add a touch of flavor from the " old " world, the Hungarian Club presented " Magyar Melody " . Besides ballroom dancing, skits, folk dances and songs were performed which delighted the spectators. Irion Hall Assembly was decorated musically with notes, sharps, and flats. The atmosphere gave way to a feel- ing of and a glimpse into the ways and man- ners of " old Hungary " . A number of these week-ends would not have been complete without the efforts of the Lamp- lighters. This group of musicians has pro- vided the music for many occasions, includ- ing, the Halloween Dance, Sadie Hawkins Dance, and the Anchor and Eagle Valentine Dance.

In their first game of the season the Blue and White had six new men in the starting lineup — of the sixteen sub- stitutes, twelve were plaving for the first time, too. With Captain Sherm Cunningham doing the leading, the team worked hard to gain win number one, but it came only after the team had suffered six straight set-backs. Head Coach " Pete " Langhorst.

Trailing 12-0, the only score for Elmhurst came in the third quarter on a beautiful 80 yard pass play from Kolwitz to Meyer. Dauber Koenig converted. Concordia came right back and drove 65 vards to score the final tallies. The Javs journeyed to Augustana for a 21-6 defeat. Sherm Cunningham broke through and blocked a kick in the first two minutes of plav, Bob Fellows recovering. " Moe 1 ' Tsumori went over from the 3. For the rest of the half it was all Augustana — registering three touchdowns and as many extra points. The second half Elmhurst pushed the Augies all over the field, but just could not score. October 4 was no different for the Jay rooters. Lake Forest came here to administer a 27-7 reversal. John Tanis drove over from the seven yard line early in the fourth quarter, and Koenig converted for Elmhurst ' s onlv scores.

The Jays held the Titans even for two quarters, but the Big Green put over two third quarter touchdowns, and we had suffered defeat number four. On October 18, the Javs were invited to Wheaton ' s homecoming.

For our op- ponents the much feared Javs picked weak North Central, conference champs in 1946. We lost 39-0. It was rumored that if we did defeat North Central this homecoming, we would have Notre Dame as our opponent next home- coming. We defeated Illinois College November 1, 13-6, for our onlv victory of the season. Illinois College ' s only score came when Kafka was tackled attempting to pass and it was intercepted.

On November 8 the Carthage Redmen proved too much for the Jays. Sandford scored from six yards out in the first quarter, and Elmhurst led 6-0 at the half. Carthage came back with two quick scores, but a long Kafka to Green pass and Koenig ' s conversion tied the score, 13-13. The last quarter saw the Redmen punch over two more TD ' s for a final score of 27-13. In a game played on a rain drenched field, Elmhurst closed out its season with a 12-0 loss to Millikin on November 15.

Having been graduated from the ranks of the lowly " Frosh " , the Sophomores set out to prove themselves worthy of their higher status. The able people that the Sophomores had chosen for their leaders were: Harold Krieger. president; Carolvn Maisch. secretary: Merle Baker, vice-president: and Bob Bogott, treas- urer. The most outstanding contribution of the Sophomore Class to the social life on Elm- hurst ' s Campus, was the semi-formal, which was held November 25th. The theme of this dance was " Enchanted Forest ' , and it proved to be one of the most entertaining and gala events of the year, complete with a prince and a princess. The Sophomores are also the sponsors of an all school picnic in the Spring. Good luck to the class of ' 50, and bigger and better things will be expected from them in the future.

Cranch WINTER 55 the Elms Queen presenting Miss Sue Esthus To the veteran patients at Vaughan and Mines General Hospitals went the honor and pleasure of making the final seleetion of the Elms ' Queen. The staff thanks them for their cooperation and for their fine selection. Miss Esthus. whose home is Chicago, is a Sophomore studying medicine. Miss Bloxom, residing in Elmhurst although her home is Council Bluffs, Iowa, is also a Sophomore majoring in Fine Arts. Miss McKee, who calls Maywood. Illinois her home, is a Junior concentrating on Biology. The other three of the six finalists, chosen by an all-student vote, were: Miss 1erril n Hartman. Freshman from Dayton, Ohio; Miss Bette Johnson. Sopho- more from Chicago; and Miss Loretta Llewellyn. Senior from Glen Ellvn. Illinois. 56 Mr. Roark, acting as adviser, discusses important Board report with Finance Committee members. X HE Student Union is the organization through which the students exercise self-gov- ernment, with every registered student being a member. The organization s purpose is to unify the students as a working unit, and to regulate all matters pertaining to student life. The S.U. Cabinet, which carries out the in- terests of the Student Union, is made up of an executive committee and five standing com- mittees. These committees, which coordinate various campus activities with the Student Union, are: Athletics, Chapel, Publications. Council on Social Life, and Library. Working hard under Bob Abbott ' s leadership, the organization made several important ad- vancements, additional equipment was ob- tained for social functions, and the wired-radio svstem was put into operation. Through the Finance committee and their fine report on the financial situation, an improved relation- ship between students and the Board was developed. STUDENT UNION STUDENT UNION CABINET: L.

Before the new school year had begun, the calendar committee had met with representatives of organizations and classes who wished to secure dates on the Social calendar. The student interest sheets were also compiled bv the Resource Committee. With the assistance of Mrs. Story, Miss Johnson, and Mr. Koenig, this council worked as an advisorv and functionary board. The new freshmen members of the council replacing the retiring seniors at the mid-year were: Erwin Schaeffer, Laura Lee Grant, Shir- ley Huntmann, and John Trnka. Second semester chairman and secretary were Gus Molnar and Martha Green, respectively, suc- ceeding former chairman Charles Goldsmith and secretary Frances Wentzel. Members outline programs for fine entertainment. COUNCIL ON SOCIAL LIFE Seated: Miss Johnson, B. McKee, L. Sonneborn, F. Wentzel, C. Goldsmith, chairman; M. Green, V. Karmann, M. Teichen.

WINTER Rev. Schade laughingly crowns Jim Schneider " King for a Night " al the Lel-down party. w INTER weeks were brightened by week end parties packed with fun for all who par- ticipated. Books and studies were forgotten: soft music, bright music, gay laughter, and light-hearted fun threw cares to the cold winter wind. One step over the door sill and the Co-eds and I heir dates were no longer in Elmhurst, but far down in the " Deep South " , where loveliness abounded. The scent of magnolia blossoms, white picket fences, and music, whisked the couples away into the charm of the southern atmosphere: and the college Co- eds chalked up another successful, annual girl- date-bov semi-formal affair. For those who couldn ' t go home between semesters to celebrate the end of exams, the Let-Down Part gave them their opportunity to " let-down " after the two previous grueling weeks. Jim Schneider was rightly crowned " King James I " , and ruled for the evening. 60 On Feb. 7th the Anchor and Eagle Club sponsored the last dance before Lent, an enter- taining and enjoyable informal. During Lent, dancing was given up, but entertaining pro- grams kept Saturday nights highlighted on campus. Begun last vear, the tradition of a Student- Faculty show became firmly grounded as num- erous " dignified and serious " profs joined here- tofore undiscovered talents, with those of stu- dents to produce a rollicking evening of laughter. Produced after weeks of hard work by the Juniors, the show was one of the most talked of and best -remembered events of the year. In March the annual Women ' s Union Circus set up its Big Top in the gym. The circus was complete with clowns, gayly-colored balloons, food, and sideshows of all sorts, besides the various Big Top acts sponsored by campus organizations. The orphans " adopted ' for the evening lent just the right spirit to the circus to make it the " real thing " .

Illinois College 57, and the Blue Jays captured a tie for third place in the College Conference of Illinois. Elmhurst 67, Aurora 60, the season ' s final, and the basket- ball team had chalked up the best season record in the school ' s history, eleven wins against eight losses. Every plaver, as well as Bob Thompson, coaching for his second season, can be proud of such a record. Although the chief factor in victory was the combined effort of all to produce good teamwork, some individual rec- ords were noteworthy. Arm Bizer led team scoring with 192 points, while Wuchner scored 184 and Frega scored 179. Ace Frega, in turn, led in the ten conference games with an even 100 points. The team got off to a slow start, having won only two games of six when Christmas vacation began. After a loss in the season ' s opener to Concordia, 53 to 45, the Blue Jays whipped North Central 54 to 43, in a thrilling first home game of the season.

An almost disastrous southern and western trip followed, when the Blue Jays played and lost three games in five davs. The first was a conference loss, 60 to 43, to the Billikens of Millikin, who eventually captured a share of the title. They then traveled to Alton where they lost to Shurtleff College, 64 to 46. Swing- ing up the Mississippi, the travel-weary team lost a heart -breaker to Carthage, 50 to 44. Rested and glad to be home, the team took a short trip on Dec. 18 to Lake Forest, where they romped off with a 49 to 36 victory, and went home to enjoy a good vacation. In the first game in January, the Jays fought fiercely and had Wheaton hanging on the ropes, but missed victory by one point, 43 to 42. It was a non-conference game. With this loss an incentive, the Blue Jays launched a six game victory streak, four in conference play. They started it against Aurora, racking up their season ' s high total of 74 points against 63.

Next thev tried for two season victories against North Central, but were turned back 63 to 52. as uchner scored 14 points. Trying hard to avenge the one point loss earlier in the season, the Jays were thwarted at W heaton in a 55 to 46 defeat. (.4 Returning home for the final eonferenee game against Illinois College, the Jays won an exeiting, hard-fought victory. Arny Bizer scored 25 points, high for the season, in the 63 to 57 win. Concordia proved to be the Jays ' victim in the final home game, as Elmhurst overcame an early deficit to win, 63-54. Wuchner and Frega each had 15 points. In the season ' s final, the Blue Jays outscored Aurora, 67-60, with A. Bizer scoring 19 points and Koenig scoring 15 points. Over the 19 game season, Elmhurst won 11 games against 8 defeats, scoring 989 points for a 52 point average. Their opponents scored 948. In winning 5 of 10 games in the C.C.I., the Jays scored 484 points to the opponent ' s 503. Of 10 home games, the Jays lost only one, but away, Elmhurst won only two of nine games.

Promot- ing school spitit and unifying team and spec- tators, were the primary objectives of the cheerleaders and pep band. Always supporting the spirit of the players, the cheerleaders kept up a steady flow of cheers. Many new veils were introduced and old ones revised, as a result of semi-weekly classes held bv captain and veteran cheerleader Edith George. The four fair cheerleaders got the " new look " in the white corduroy skirts which thev themselves made. Working with the cheerleaders was the Pep Band under the direction of Frank Vogel. Begun in 1946 with a nucleus of six men. the pep band has now greatly increased and im- proved. The band played for numerous games, rallies, and the W. U. Circus. It is strictly a volunteer unit sponsored by Mrs. Richter. 66 THE Men ' s Intramurals for the 1947-48 school year saw the class of ' 50, under the coaching of Gordon Carroll, sweep the first two class tournaments, undefeated in touch football and once defeated in basketball. This won them the right to oppose the Alumni in touch football on Homecoming morning. Sur- prising as it mav seem, youth prevailed against experience, and the Sophs trounced the Alumni, 13-0. The basketball season brought forth 8 intra- mural teams to play a single round-robin tour- nament. Team Number 3, led by John Thomas and John Lowe, finished undefeated and won the right to play the Junior Varsity in the curtain raiser game preceding the last varsity home game. The J.V ' s dealt defeat number one to the intramural champs, 65 to 50. Volleyball, which included a faculty team, softball, and track were scheduled to keep the competitive spirit whetted in the Spring. Exemplifying fighting spirit of f ntra-murals, two of the players set a torrid pace. INTRAMURALS Erickson and Bruno scramble for loose ball, as LeGros and Lynn await results. As Sherm leaps for ball, teammate Desenis uses football tactics on opponent Erickson. MANY afternoons and evenings, the Gym- nasium would begin to fill with women students eager to prove their merit as members of an intra-murals team, or as individual win- ners of a tournament. Class teams competed against each other in volleyball, basketball, and Softball: girls competed for individual honors in badminton, archery, and ping-pong. Tournament teams were chosen bv " Teach " Johnson and her assistant, from those girls possessing good playing ability, and who had attended one more than half of the practices for that particidar sport. The entering of am of the individual tournaments was not re- stricted by any prerequisites. Points were given for the regulars and the substitutes of the winning teams, and to the winners and runners-up of the individual tour- naments. Each girl will add these points to those won in past and future years, in an earnest effort to win and to wear that much coveted " E " . SOPH VOLLEYBALL CHAMPS: Row I: G. Kappe. J. Wolff, V. Meyer.

ATHLETICS There were some innovations in the athletic department this year. First of all. because of the large increase in the number of people using the gymnasium facilities, the four years of gym formerly needed for graduation was lowered to a two-year requirement. This new system proved to be a real handicap for the uppcrclasswomen. since the only chance they had to play was during the official intramurals practices once a week, and they had no oppor- tunity to brush up on lost techniques. Second, a minor was offered in physical ed- ucation for the first time. This course is com- posed of a class in first aid. and also one in " Gaines of Higher Organization for Women " . In the latter, the class members were taught the rules of volleyball, basketball, badminton, softball, hockey, archery, and tennis. They get a chance to practice what they learn, too, b assisting " Teach " with her regular fresh- man and sophomore gym classes, and by acting as officials in the various intramural tournaments. This type of work is especially 68 recommended for those women planning to enter teaching, or intending to do playground work. Third and last, a trophy was presented to the class gaining the most points through the combined efforts of the men and women ' s intra-murals teams. This new incentive was to be that extra something needed to bring out come real competitive class spirit and create four really championship teams. This year, the Sophomore girls defeated the Juniors by one point to win the volleyball championship. The Juniors, Seniors, and the Freshmen, all showed a great zeal and enthus- iasm for volleyball, but the Sophomores proved their excellence in skill and effort in copping the championship. The basketball season was also conducted with much enthusiasm and vigor, which pro- duced an interesting and hard-fought race. To male visitors, the girls game seems unusual, since half of each team must remain on their half of the floor, and although the players get a chance to rest some, the action is fast for they really hustle and bustle. The women ' s athletics program was again organized by Maude " Teach " Johnson, whose own ability and good sportsmanship on the gym floor has won for her the admiration and friendship of her students. Through her efforts, individual skills were developed, new tech- niques perfected, and team-work emphasized. ' Teach " is the kind of person who can make you want to go out on that gym floor and do your best.

THE list of successes for the school of music is keynoted this year by the numerous well received tours and outside performances given by the various groups. Noteworthy among the tours, was one that the Polyhymnia took in late February and earlv March through Wisconsin. Other appearances of this group include those in Kentucky; Evansville, Indi- ana; Edgewater Beach Hotel, Chicago; and the Chicago Sunday Evening Club. Mrs. Ursula Richter is their inspiring director. Another tour worthy of mention was that of the Men ' s Glee Club through Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas in April. This popular group of twenty-seven voices was reorganized in the fall of 1947 after having been inactive during the war years. Capable direction was given them the first semester by Mr. Eugene Troth, and during the last half of the year by Mr. Keith M. Smejkal. Their program at Hines Hospital was favorably received. The mixed Chorus and Community Or- chestra were both under the leadership of world famous Nicolai Malko and proved them- selves a credit to his brilliant direction. This vear the Mixed Chrous, composed of forty active members, renewed old friendships and made new ones for their group by several ap- pearances at Hines Hospital. An active year was also enjoyed by the Community Orchestra of fourty-four members. Memorable to campus residents and their friends, were the three concerts presented dur- ing the year by combination of the four groups; Polyhymnia, Mens ' Glee Club, Mixed Chorus, and Community Orchestra. These programs were the Homecoming Musical, the Candle- light Service at Christmas, and the Spring concert. The Chapel Choir s fine contributions to a musical year, were its attendance three times a week at chapel services, its part in the pro- gram at the Chicago Sunday Evening Club, and several appearances in various church services in this area. Mr. Ludwig Lenel is responsible for the excellent blending of their thirty-six voices. COMMUNITY CHORUS: In Front: Miss Gladys Lund, accompanist, and Mrs. Ursula Richter, director. Row One: J.

The services were held in the traditional manner with the hope that stu- dents in attending them might find some escape from the hum of college life, and receive per- sonal inspirations. After a hymn, a Scripture reading, a brief message bv Rev. Schade, Rev. Koenig, or a visiting speaker, the students return again to their routine of daily living. The Chapel Choir offered anthems and responses regularly, and soloists frequently rendered selections. The student ' s religious life was heightened each Sunday when they attended Rev. Koch ' s services at St. Peter ' s Evangelical and Re- formed Church, or " St. Pete ' s " as it is dubbed affectionately bv one and all. Our friend and neighbor, St. Peter ' s E. R. Church welcomes college students to its services. Student members of Religious Life Committee talk with Rev. Schade, chairman of Chapel services. Rev. R. Koenig conducts one of the daily worship services in the Chapel. J. Schroeder at the organ. 73 THE Student Christian Association has been guided in all of its activities by its statement of purpose: " The Student Christian Association of Elmhurst College in a union of students for purposes of seeking together the nature and meaning of the Gospel about Jesus Christ. " This organization sponsored student-led Matins every Sunday morning and devotional services each week-night during Lent. Daily devotional material was secured for the student bodv and a reading table for S.C.A. material was kept in the library. A clothing drive, a financial drive for the World Student Service Fund, and a food saving program, were some of the activities under- taken bv the Student Christian Association. The programs of the monthly meetings were led bv well-known speakers, or by student- conducted round-table forums. " Christian Love " was the theme for this year ' s retreat. STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION CABINET: Sealed: S. Gerstenberg, R. Lausman, president; L. Sonnehorn, secretary; F. Wenizel, vice-president. Standing: I). Grunwald, E. Braun, treasurer; Prof. Schade, sponsor; R. Mueller, D. Eaton. 74 Members discuss current Christian literature. WOMEN ' S UNION THE Women s Union, one of the largest active organizations on the campus, boasts a memberchip of everv woman student. It has done much to promote a feeling of unity between town and dormitory students bv spon- soring social events and recreational activities. This popular organization is led bv Evelyn Dammerman, president; Marie Hullcranz, vice- president; Beverly Hamowitz, secretary; and Nita Rende, treasurer. Among the activities sponsored by the Union are the Big Sister-Little Sister Tea, given early in October to acquaint the Freshman women with the school activities, a vice-versa Sadie Hawkins Dance and a Christmas Tea. The Union also sponsors woman ' s intramurals and a swimming party. The most popular annual functions are the Co-ed Dance and the Circus. The women students always remember the general hospitality which is the theme of the Women ' s Union. Miss Hoelscher pours tea for Miss Panes and Miss Green at the annual gala Christmas Tea, sponsored and directed by the Women ' s Union.

T. A. IN its second year, the Future Teachers of America is a social and educational organi- zation made up of. and existing for. those students who expect to enter the teaching pro- fession. The F.T.A. of Elmhurst College is a member of state and national associations of education. One of the chief aims is to bring together prospective teachers to exchange views on topics concerning their chosen field, and to provide an outlet for their common interests. The group holds regular monthly meetings throughout the vear. in which discussions, motion pictures, and informative lectures pro- vide the basis for the programs of the evening. One of the highlights of the past year was an instructive session on Parliamentary Pro- cedure, at which, the F. T. A. presented Attorney Michael Kross. instructor-lecturer. STEERING COMMITTEE: Co-chairman E.liih George and Bol Koelling lalk with adviser, Mr. Earl Davis. Miss Marjorie Cochran is also an adviser. FIRESIDES L AST vear, Firesides made its first appear- ance on the campus and was well received. This vear the organization has again met with enthusiasm and has afforded stimulation to serious thinking. Firesides is a student- organized discussion group which meets in the homes of faeult members. On a Firesides evening, a hundred or more students assemble at the home of four or five different faculty members. Pre-assigned stu- dents act as host and hostess, and one student assumes the role of discussion leader. In each group of about twenty -five, the students pre- sent their personal views on school problems and national and world affairs, and these views develop into thought-provoking and enlight- ening general discussion. One of the aims of the group is to develop closer and more informal association among students and faculty. SCIENTISTS THE Science Club is a rejuvenation of a pre-war organization which had its reor- ganization at the request of student interest. The popularity of the club is due largely to the fact that it was desired by students, re- organized bv students, and governed solely by students. The membership requirements, according to Earl A. Davis, club sponsor, are of two natures. A student who wishes to join the Science Club mav either present a suitable project to the club members for their approval, or he may present his grades which he has received in one of the fields of science. Timely discussions are held at the monthly meetings which are directed by the fine science profs. Since Elmhurst excells in the field of science, the Science Club hopes soon to become one of the stronger clubs on campus. OFFICERS: Seated: Andrew Gyure, president; Winnie Schultz, secretary; Mr. Earl Davis, adviser. Standing: John Brown, treasurer; Joel Mossberg, vice-president and chairman of Programs. A. E. THE din of war has long since passed, and veterans who served in all theaters of war are now fulfilling one phase of their fox-hole dreams by resuming their college studies. In- numerable are the problems that confront them — rehabilitation, G.l. benefits, insurance, housing and countless others. To help meet these problems is the purpose of the Anchor Eagle Club. From the original nucleus of sixteen veterans in late 1945, the club now boasts over a hundred paid members. Mutually bound bv their war experiences, the ex-GI ' s successfully sponsored the " Valentine Club " dance, and held pleasant informal parties. By holding regular Memorial services and special programs on patriotic holidays, they remembered their buddies who never returned. Hoping and planning for the future, they stand united for a world of peace and love for which they fought. OFFICERS: Seated: Louis Lammers, commander, Mamoru Fujioka, adjutant. Standing: Don Lemke, vice-commander; Mr. Bob Thompson, adviser; Art Block, treasurer. 77 PHILOSOPHERS THE Philosophy Club s purpose is to offer an opportunity to the students to clarify the present-day fundamental problems by means of semi-informal philosophical discus- sions. The earl meetings of the year took the form of panel discussions. A highlight of this year ' s program was the meeting which featured Dr. Keglev, professor of Philosophy of Religion at Lutheran Theological Seminary. These meet- ings were met both bv enthusiasm of members ami enthusiasm of contributing participants. To publish a cross-section of opinions on the many varied aspects of life, as seen in the light of philosophy, a booklet called " The Owl of Minerva ' ' is compiled and printed both in the fall and spring. Through the " Owl " , thoughts are clarified, prejudices are dissolved and in- tellectual activity is stimulated. Dr. Richter is the Club s sponsor. STEERING COMMITTEE: John Schaefer, Jim Schneider, Rev. R. Koenig, faculty adviser. OFFICERS: Arline Lunzer, " Owl " editor; James Schneider, lihrarian: William Baur. vice-president: Eugene Schupp, secretary-treasurer: Don Burk- halter. president. PRE-THE ' S THE Pre-Theological Society ' s aim is to increase understanding of the personal and social problems of the Christian life. Dean Friedli opened the year with a presen- tation of " The Laymen Views the Role of the Pre-The " . and a general group discussion fol- lowed. Part of the year ' s program was a series of discussions of Christian Service. This series contained a visual aid presentation of the Christian ministry, speakers on home and foreign missions, and discussions on the fourth- coming merger of the Congregational and E. and R. Churches. As speakers, there were such personages as the Dr. Frederick W. Schroeder. President of Eden Seminary, and Rev. Jefferson P. Rogers, Associate Secretary of the Race Relations Com- mission on Christian Social Action of the E. and R. Church. 78 SOCIOLOGISTS OFFICERS: Tom Whitcomb, president; Mary Nicol, secretary -treasurer; Florence Shigeno, vice- president; Dean Alfred Friedli, sponsor. PSYCHOLOGISTS LEARNING in an entertaining wav is the purpose of the meetings of the Psychology Club. This organization, composed not only of psychology students, but of all students in- terested in the subject, sponsors student-par- ticipation programs, in which problems of college men and women are discussed. Because the problems approached are common among the participants, the discussions and programs are informative and helpful as well as enter- taining. One interesting program this year was de- voted to the individual ' s behavior, according to the way he empties his tooth paste tube. It was discovered that whether or not one rolls up the used end of his tube depends on his emotional attitudes. The club has been guided through the vear by its steering committee composed of Char- lotte Krivulka and Gene Braun. The organ- ization ' s sponsor is Miss Clara Loveland. T HE Sociology Club exists for those inter- ested in sociological fields, and those who would like to discuss the social problems and trends of the day. The program of this club calls for arrangement each month, by the steer- ing committee, of an outside speaker to present material pertinent to sociological fields of inter- est. The first meeting this year was held at the home of the sponsor, Dean Friedli. A cordial atmosphere of informal fellowship, intensified with intellectual activity, reigned throughout the meeting. Another meeting featured John Willard of the American Friends Service Com- mittee. Another speaker Reverend Chandler Sterling, pastor of the Church of Our Savior in Elmhurst, spoke on the " Causes of De- linquency " . From time to time noted sociologists are invited to speak at open meetings, to which the entire student and faculty bodv is invited. STEERING COMMITTEE: Co-chairmen Gene Braun and Charlotte Krivulka, seated, discuss in- teresting program with George Langeler, program director. 79 OFFICERS: Seated: M. Joens, O. Broer, sec- treas.: A. L. Ziak, Program Chairman. Standing: C. Hagemann. vice-pres.: P. Achtemeier, president: R. Witzeman, Dr. W. Wadepuhl, sponsor. GOETHE VEREIN THE Goethe Verein has. during the past two years, risen from a state of dormancy which prevailed during the war vears to one of prominence on the campus scene. The club was reorganized last vear bv Doctor W adepuhl, and this vear it has taken root in the campus soil and flowered into one of the most active language groups on the campus. The Goethe Verein met for the first time this year on Wednesday. November 5. The initial meeting was highlighted by the election of the following officers: Paul Achtemeier, pres- ident; Clint Hagemann, vice president: and Orpah Broer, secretarv-treasurer. A program committee consisting of Miss Anna Ziak, Mildred Joens, and Bob Witz- mann was elected to organize the monthlv programs. The largest attendance of the vear gathered at the Christinas meeting when Mrs. Richter spoke about Christmas customs in Germany. OFFICERS: B. Swanson. president; N. Grossman, commit lee chairman: W. Gohr, secretary-treasurer; M. Nicol, vice-president. 80 SPANISH CLUB CLUB Sud-America, the new Spanish club that appeared on campus this year, was organized to stimulate student interest in the Spanish language, and to familiarize the club members with Spanish and Latin-American customs and traditions. The officers for the first year were: Beverly Swanson. Marv Nicol. and Vi innie Gohr. Senor Rafael Movano, the new Spanish professor, acted as club adviser. The club meetings were always interesting and unusual. Delicacies particularly pleasing to the Spanish palate were received with sur- prising favor and enjoyment bv American stomachs. Typical Spanish and Latin- Ameri- can magazines, which are almost entirely com- posed of pictures, were circulated among the club members throughout the school year. The biggest project of the year, was the pro- duction of a play written by Senor Movano and acted out bv club members. MAGYAR CLUB AGAIN, the past year was a mile stone for the Hungarian Club. It successfully pre- sented " Magyar Melody " to the student body, and concluded a tour in April to Racine and Milwaukee, where a two hour program was given in the Hungarian Language. The aim of this tour was to assimilate funds for the Hungarian Student Aid Fund. Two plays were included in the program: " The Valiant " , and " The Milk " . Another highlight of the program was the " Csardas " with Steve Csutoros, Charlotte Krivulka, Margaret Akai, and Fred Dananay. The purposes of the Hungarian Club are to further the speaking of the language, and to propagate Elmhurst College among E. R. Churches. With Dr. Dienes, club adviser and head of the Hungarian Department on leave of ab- sence in Europe, Mrs. Mary Dienes of Cam- bridge, Mass., filled his position. OFFICERS: Margaret Akai, secretary-treasurer; Mrs. M. Dienes, sponsor, Irene Binder, vice-presi- dent; and August Molnar, president. FRENCH CLUB LE Circle Francais, again functioning on the campus this semester, planned many pro- grams which would help the members to be- come better acquainted with the language and customs of the French people. The officers of the club which were elected for the past year, were Mamoru Fujioka, Mary Lou Baas, and Carol Ramsev. The meetings are all conducted in French, and at the gather- ings French games are played, songs sung and a summary of the latest social and political news of France is given by Miss Powell. Mademoiselle Powell, who is the faculty ad- viser of the club, was born in France, and studied there before she came to Elmhurst to teach. Her interesting personal stories about her country and her people add much enjoy- ment to the parties and programs she has planned for the French Club. OFFICERS: Carol Ramsey, secretary; Mary Lou Baas, vice-president; Mamoru Fujioka, president; Miss Marie Powell, sponsor. 81 INTER-DORMITORY COUNCIL: Seated: Mrs. E. Krivulka, Miss G. Staudt, Mr. A. Friedli, Mr. J. Baumgart, Mr. R. Koenig. Standing: R. Ansley, C. Hagemann, D. Priestap, pres.: J. Newman, R. Stoerker, E. Schupp. M. Engelsdorfer. " HOME " LIFE Down in the new Gym Annex, some of the Frosh residents join in reading, cards, and cahitzing. NEVER quite able to replace the real " home, " the dormitories supply an ade- quate substitute, wherein the residents create the friendly atmosphere through cooperative living. Established this vear, the Inter-dormitory Council assists in closer relationships of the campus " family. " The Council acts as a re- viewing board, receiving campus information, correlating it, and then making appropriate suggestions, endeavoring towards a happier, more consolidated unit. It is composed of dorm representatives, dorm advisers, and a Col- lege Executive Committee. Another addition to dorm life was the Annex, or " Pool Hall " as it is popularly re- ferred to by the freshmen residents, since it is the old swimming pool floored over. Due to the construction, the actions of each man directly affects the others, necessitating close harmony and cooperation in living and study - The fellows feel it was good experience in living, though, and much will be remembered. AI Havnal, an upperclassman and veteran, served as adviser. 82 SOUTH IRION IT is at South Hall that all the campus co- eds reside. Aside from the many rules and regulations that the gals have to abide by, it is quite dear to the hearts of many girls. It is here that gab fests, spreads, pajama parties and open house are held. If things get too quiet (? ?) vou ' ll occasionally hear an ash can rolling down the hall at night. This past year saw some changes in South Hall; triple rooms were added, and evening devotions were stimulated. That 10:10 curfew for the Freshman girls is much dreaded, and they eagerly hope for the time when they become upper classmen. President of House Council this year was Marion Engelsdorfer. Two representatives from each class served on this council. Mrs. Krivulka took over entirely the duties of Dean Staudt, and became a full fledged house-mother. TURNING to the Male population, Irion Hall houses the males on campus. There is always something new going on in Irion Hall, for here are located the publication offices and the School of Music. If one is awakened early in the morning, it is because someone insists on practicing the clarinet, organ, or piano. Rev. and Mrs. Koenig, now proud parents, still have their home in Irion Hall, and act as counselors and friends to the fellows. Portly Clint Hagemann was elected president of the dorm for the last vear. A new addition, formerly " Lower Slobovia ,, to 20 freshmen, was converted into a recreation room which is now being enjoyed by all students, and especially the ping-pong fans. The main event of the year for Irion Hall and its residents, was Open House, held on March 7, — an evening well worth remembering. A usual scene in a South Hall room, shows Flo and May browsing an old Elms, while Judy pens a note. Relaxing for a few moments from the grind, Jim, Paul, John, and Howie enjoy some pinochle. FOR MEN ONLY Cozy anil friendly Senior Lodge, for upperclassmen. OFF to the south side of the campus, sur- rounded by tall elms, and with a spacious lawn in front, stands the Lodge, home for manv upperclassmen. Behind the tall white pillars reigns a cooperative government, where- by all its affairs are kept in order by the members. At the Lodge ' s annual party, the newly- elected president. Himeo " Mo " Tsumori, was crowned " Pope " in a traditional ceremony as all other members acquired the title of " Card- inals " . The members buv their own news- papers, pav their own phone bills, and do their own cleaning — the latter on a roster basis. Probably providing the most " home-like " atmosphere on campus, the Lodge produces much pride and many happy memories for its male residents. It is a scene of work and fun, — much fun, as well as hard, concentrated work, since it is small, comfortable, and away from the general rush of campus. THE Cottages, or Barracks if you prefer are three unimposing structures resting at thefarwest endof campus next to the cemetery. On the inside, however, it is a different scene, for the " vet " residents pride themselves in the friendly, comfortable, and " home-like " at- mosphere they have developed. Each Cottage contains four units of three rooms — two bedrooms and a larger study or living room. Just how each unit is arranged is up to the discretion and ingenuity of the four men residents. Although it means long treks to the heart of campus several times a dav, through all weather, the vets enjoyed the seclusion the distance affords, studying, gab- bing, and festing. Here also, independent government reigned, with each cottage contributing to a central group, headed this year by president Jim LeGros. Acting as adviser was Mr. John Baumgart. Time for some relaxing before studies in Collages. Time for coffee and rolls! And the town students jam up al the S.U. store window for a tasly morsel. TOWN STUDENTS MAYWOOD, Oak Park, Villa Park, Chi- cago, Riverside, and Elmwood Park are only a few of the near-bv towns other than Elmhurst, that are represented by students here at college. Fair or stormy weather will find many individuals scurrying toward Old Main after having been delaved by either the " faithful 1 ' A. and E. train or the " never-late " Northwestern. The favorite meeting places of the town stu- dents are the Student Union Room and Kranz Hall Lounge. One or many of the students will be seated at the tables in S. U., at prac- tically every hour of the day; some will be engrossed in a serious bridge or pinochle game; others will be conversing quietly with friends; while still others will be studving diligently. As contrasted to the ever popular and busy S.U. Room, Kranz Hall offers a haven of peacefulness. The commuters also have a studv room in the basement of Old Main, and then there ' s always Room 27! Students study and chat in Kranz Hall lounge. if I m Kwtmjm % 85 Seated: Marcelline W ieloch, Phyllis Robinson, Nancy Engelman. anil Carvl W iegman. Standing: Alice Campbell, and Helen Wood. NURSES TRAINING STUDENTS WE have on our campus this year, six ambitious, hard-working young women who have adopted the five ear plan, which combines college work and nurse ' s training, and leads to a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing education. This five year plan consists of seventy -five hours of college work followed by three years of nurse s train- ing. After passing the state examination for registered nurses, the women are awarded their degree. These six girls comprise approximated one- third of the regular nurse s training class at the Masonic Hospital in Chicago. The hos- pital is affiliated with Elmhurst College in a cooperative program wherebv the girls come out to Elmhurst three day s a week for one or two classes. The hospital makes it possible for them to spend the whole day here, so that they may participate in some of the activities of college life. Five of the girls have alreadv completed two years of college work. Phyllis Robinson and Alice Campbell of Elmwood Park attended Elmhurst for two years. Carvl Wiegman and Helen ood, both of Chicago, attended Car- thage College and the University of Iowa, re- spectively. Nancy Engelman of Jacksonville, Illinois, attended Illinois College for two vears. Marcelline Wieloch of Chicago has had no previous college work and is taking Chemistry and Zoology. Attending the college three days a week is in addition to the regular nurses training pro- gram at the hospital. When the girls return to the hospital each evening, thev are on duty for five hours. Although it means hard work, the girls are very enthusiastic about this pro- gram, and they feel that more young women will want to take advantage of it in the future. 86 Clockwise from upper left: " Cracking the whip " on Wilder Park pond . . .

Spofford SPRING JUNIOR PROM COURT: Miss Martha Green, queen; Miss Jean Thornton, attendant, and Miss Edith May George, attendant. Bill Kalel, left, and Bette Limberg, center, co- chairmen of [he Prom, talk it over with heads and members of important committees. JUNIOR PROM A lovely night, soft music and soft lights, and the handsome couples glide across the large and beautiful floor at Medinah Country Club. Thus, the climactic highlight of the college social season, the Junior Prom, brought thrills and pleasure to the many fortunate couples in attendance. In a fitting ceremony of recognition, the Prom Court was presented, and Miss Martha Green reigned as queen. Following the cere- mony, at which the queen and her attendants. Miss Edith George and Miss Jean Thornton, were presented with flowers, Miss Green, on the arm of her escort, beamingly lead the Grand March. Miss Green is from Villa Park, while Miss George is a Chicagoan, and Miss Thornton calls Kansas City, Missouri her home. The evening began with a delicious dinner, served buffet style, and eaten in the large, handsome dining room. Following the dinner, the couples enjoyed delightful dancing to the beautiful music of Jim Barclay ' s orchestra. Although the whole Junior Class is compli- mented for the grand evening, special thanks go to the co-chairmen. Bill Katel and Bette Limberg, and to the chairmen and members of their committees. 90 Miss Martha Green QUEEN OF THE JUNIOR PROM ONE year of freshness mixed with a year of sophistication; add a pinch of ego with a heaping bit of success and another year of experience. The result? The Junior Class. When the class of ' 49 sets out to do some- thing, it gets done. Anyone can tell from all the successful activities sponsored bv the jaunty Juniors. As Sophs, they originated a " Student Faculty Show ' ' and a student directory. This year thev continued these precedents, but made them even bigger and better. Then there is the unforgettable Junior prom, including both a dance and a buffet supper. You ' ll find the Juniors on the honor roll, on the stage, on the football field, and basket- ball court, — all bringing glorv to the class of 1949. If you listen to the Juniors, thev have the best class at Elmhurst. Perhaps they do! Well, who knows?

McKee, special features; P. Achtemeier, schedules. ON THE AIR! ON the Saturday of Homecoming the cam- pus of Elmhurst College heard the first broadcast ol its own Wired Radio System. One Technicians Schaeferle and Sleiner, and chief technician Block put broadcast on the air. week later broadcasts began on a definite schedule. These broadcasts, put on entirely bv campus talent, were confined to the college campus. Warren McGovney served as the station ' s director, and Miss Cochran was the faculty adviser. The Radio began very slowly, but gradually picked up momentum in its drive for student participation. A wire recorder received from the Homecoming Committee, proved invalu- able. Broadcasts this year attempted to prove the worth of a radio to the college body. The radio surmounted many difficulties and came a long way from its meager beginnings, but much remains to be done. It is the sincere hope of those connected with the Wired Radio System, that it will come to be considered the most worthwhile organization this campus has seen in many years. With good student sup- port it cannot fail this objective. 100 BEHIND THE FOOTLIGHTS IN the Spring the Theater realized a long awaited dream, an additional produetion which consisted of four One-acts, and the pro- duction of " Joan of Lorraine " . All the one-act plays were staged by mem- bers of Mr. Arends directing class. The plays were: " The Still Alarm, " staged by Dorothy Boultbee; " The Rising of the Moon, " directed bv Willa Sigler; " Gone Tomorrow " , under the direction of Lois Schlozer; and " The Swan Comes Last " , an original play by Daniel Lehmann, and staged by Ralph Klein. These one-act plays went on the road, pre- sented in both a church and town hall. All engagements were procured by Theodore Krohne and were sponsored by church youth organizations. The presentation of " Joan of Lorraine " , by Maxwell Anderson, closed an auspicious season on April 8, 9, 10. Robert C. MacKichan of the Yale University Theater designed the set, and C. C. Arends expertly staged the play. This production is a play within a play with many actors playing dual roles. The play is based on episodes in the life of Joan of Arc. Over 400 members of youth organizations from the greater Chicago area were invited to this performance. The Elmhurst College Theatrical season was a huge success. Its first production was the Homecoming musical comedy, " Elmhurst Out- bursts " , written bv Dan Lehmann. Another student, Andrew McGlashan, designed the set. The next play, " The Whole World Over " , bv Konstantine Simonov, with an English adaptation by Thelma Schnee was presented in December. The set was built and painted by Elmhurst College Theater from designs by Robert Clark MacKichan. Shakespeare ' s " As You Like It " , was an entertaining informal bv this group. An im- pressive formal initiation of guppies and a banquet when new and old members gathered together, wound up the year ' s activities. Part of cast rehearsing lines for Spring production: M.

Showing enthusiasm from the start, the group sponsored a photo exhibition in April, from contributions bv the club mem- bers. Organized in March, the group elected Ed Urban, Jim Nordstrom, and June Maier as officers, and Ed Johnson as publicity chairman. Mr. Rosback worked as club adviser. The club ' s program included mutual dis- cussions and sharing of experiences, as well as having talks given by experienced photog- raphers. Plans include working with The Elms, both to provide fuller coverage for the year- book, and to benefit each member by added experience. A major and long-term project is to acquire dark-room facilities on campus. STAFF: Row One: E. George, M. Baas, G. Bruce. Roiv Two: K. Dimmit 1, G. Timke. Roiv Three: D. Lehmann, R. Mueller, R.

ELM LEAVES THE creative writing class sponsors a lit- erary magazine called the " Elm Leaves " , which contains short stories, essays, and poems written bv all students interested in modern literature and writing. These works are selected bv a creative writing contest with the winners in each field seeing their work in print, as well as receiving a ten dollar prize. Friends of the school and faculty members were the judges. The prizes were given by Dr. Lehmann, Dean Staudt. and Miss Norenberg. Appro- priately, the publication was dedicated to Dr. Lehmann. Heading the staff were Bob Jones and Edith George, editor and co-editor, and Ken Stone served as Business Manager. Miss Hazel Chrisman is the faculty advisor for the project. The cover for the " Elm Leaves " was de- signed and cut by Katie Dimmitt and Mary Lou Haas. 102 AUXILIARY THE Women ' s Auxiliary is an organization which has benefitted Elmhurst through its work ever since its founding in 1919. Composed of ladies who are interested in the welfare of the college, the Auxiliary functions as a unit to keep the college ' s linens and towels in good condition. On the last Thursday of each month, the members of this organization, many of whom are mothers of Elmhurst students, meet on campus to carry on their beneficial work — sewing and mending. The officers of the Auxiliary are as follows: president, Mrs. Alfred Friedli, who recently succeeded Mrs. Timothy Lehmann, president for twenty years; vice- president, Mrs. Meyer; secretary, Mrs. Lang- horst; treasurer, Mrs. Berlekamp.

COACH Oliver " Pete " Langhorst ' s Blue Jay Nine showed a better rating in the winning column for the 1947 baseball season than they have for several past seasons. The Jays won 4 games out of 12 for a .333 per- centage, and were ahead 3-2 in a called game with Wheaton that was never replaved or continued.

They won the final game of the season, however, 11 to 3 over Con- cordia. With only three regulars, Traut, Postula and Gregson, gone from last vear ' s team, the players had good hopes for this year. Such players as Schneider, Kolwitz, Westerlund, Kafka, Tabbert, Meyers, and the Bizers re- turned, and several new men, such as, Jones and Pobanz looked promising. A good season was in vogue. 109 I " M7 TENNIS TKA.M: Front: Jim LeGros, Dick Kucera, Bud Ubertsen, Bob bisley. Rear: arren McGovnev, Les Brune, Coach C. C. Arends, Clarence Kohring. TENNIS THE 1947 season was fairlv successful, not in winning a majority of their matches, but in preparing a team for this year. The team gained considerable strength as the ' 47 season progressed, as shown bv defeats ad- ministered to Illinois Normal and Lake Forest in return matches. Coach C. C. Arends expects better things this year, with all lettermen returning, except Don Davidsen and Les Brune, and a status quo ante helium — pre-war stuff — is the goal. Bud Albertsen, with a fine 1947 record be- hind him, will return as the No. 1 man. The other lettermen returning. Anslev. LeGros, Kohring, and McGovnev, will bid for the other positions along with the new members.

The small gold letter must be kept until the wearer decides to " pin " his favorite girl. GOLFERS IN a return to pre-war status, golf was re- sumed this year on a varsitv basis. Under Coach Thompson ' s direction, the varsity team was established by competition of eligibles in trial rounds. Although competing for the first time in several years, a successful season was hoped for. Dual matches were held with several of the conference teams, and on May 15, the Jays were hosts to the C.C.I. Tournament.

Although the seniors held a delightful in- formal for the student body in the spring, the highest spot on their calendar was the observance of Senior Week. Relaxing after their last finals and preparing for that all- important day. Commencement, they pic nicked and went theater-partying together, filling those last few days with the laughter and excitement of events which they will al- ways count among their happiest. The seniors presented a fine camera with accessories as their class gift. The Class of ' 48 WHO ' S WHO: Seated: Harriet Brosmer, Katie Dimmit t, Sibylle Gerstenberg. Standing: Vern Karmann.

" Auld Acquaintances Shall Neer Be Forgot — " Every class which has spent four years on Elmhurst ' s green campus has left its thumbprint upon the pages of its history; thumbprints which cannot easily be erased, prints which add color and life, and which bring quick memories. Our freshman year, we found the campus already nearly depleted of boys, and found many of the remaining few being called into the service. This was the last year the girls called Irion Hall " home " and the boys inhabited South Hall, for in our sophomore vear we had exchanged abodes. Still grieving over our freshmen " wounds " , we, as sophomores, initiated the new freshmen with the proper amount of hazing. Besides our " Hay Mu " dance, we contributed to the social life of the campus our sophomore year by introducing a dancing class and also sharing in the new S.U. Room. Our junior year was a decisive one for all of us, for we decided once and for all in what subject we would major, and " I have a conflict! " became a password. Preparations for the greatest junior prom kept us as busy as our studies would allow — and even busier. Manv of our exservicemen returned and we watched the enrollment grow by leaps and bounds. We found a new meeting place in the new student union room, moved to the basement of Kranz Hall, and rejoiced over Mrs. Baker ' s pies. The busiest of years, our senior year, passed the quickest of all as we made final preparations to take our place in " the outside world " . We bid farewell to Dr. Lehmann and welcomed Dr. Dinkmeyer in the position of president. Looking forward with eager eyes to the future, we look backward with only fond glances to a grand stay at Elmhurst. 119 ELM BAKk STAFF Ron- One: K. Mesle, H. Meyer, R. Ansley, M. L. Baas, W.

At the annual contest held by the Illinois College Press Association in Gales- bnrg. Illinois, in May, 1947, the Elm Bark was awarded first place in the weekly and semi- weeklv contest of student papers of colleges of less than 1000. At that time Barbara Cross was editor of the paper, but in January she was succeeded by Clint Hagemann. The Bark has increased to a six page paper, with photos of prominent students and speakers presented. The Bark office is now located in the basement of Irion Hall, and one will alwavs hear typewriters buzzing and pens flving to meet the Tuesday deadline. Oh. for a Journalists ' life! ! !

Bottom: Janssen, Madi, and Schneider check business, as Koenig and Maisch discuss page plans. THE ELMS CONFRONTED with the added responsi- bility in recording the history of the largest student body ever to attend Elmhurst, the entire staff of The Elms placed hard work and co-operation as their bv-lines. At almost any hour of the day and half the night, the office, located in " publications corner " next to the Bark in Irion Hall base- ment, was humming with activity. One could see some hard-working staff member either proofreading, typing, composing page plans, writing captions, keeping finances in order, or plugging for " ads " . Photographic, engrav- ing, and printing deadlines had to be met — and then came the smiles of delivery. As we write a finis to the Elms, we hope that the result of the efforts of the staff mem- bers will provide pleasant recollections for every reader.

' CHICAGO 7, ILL UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN It is with mingled emotions that administrative officers, faculty members, and others of the Elmhurst College Staff watch the graduation of another Senior Class. We share in your joy as you look forward to a new era in your lives, but as we review the years you have spent with us, the many pleasant memories bring the realization that we shall miss each of you. It is our hope and prayer that the years will be good to you — that the promise you have shown in your work here will be fully realized in happy lives and in Christian service to your fellow man. We are confident that the bond which has been established between you and your Alma Mater will bring you back to its campus at every oppor- tunity. On these occasions, one of the principal gratifications of those who work in education will be ours — to shake the hand of a returning Alumnus and to hear and share in the happiness, and perhaps the sorrow, which has come in the years since graduation.
