The inauguration of President Henry William Dinkmeyer was one of the proudest events in Elmhurst College history. With representatives of 88 colleges, dignitaries of the Evangelical and Reformed Church and various educational societies, and alumni and students of the college in attendance, Dr. Dinkmeyer was officially installed on October 1, 1948, as the eighth president of Elmhurst College. The day ' s program began when the impressive procession of college representatives, church officials, ministers, and participants in the program marched from Old Main to the gymnasium through an honor guard of students — 750 strong. The inaugural program was presided over by the Reverend Erwin R. Koch, chairman of the Board of Directors, who delivered the charge to the new president. After Dr. Dinkmeyer had delivered his acceptance speech, greetings from the students and the faculty were given by Warren McGovney, president of the Student Union, and Dean Alfred Friedli. At noon, luncheon was served to all guests. The day ' s program was concluded with a reception in the library. The following pages are an attempt to record life at Elmhurst College during the school year 1948-49. Our setting is a campus which has been greatly changed in recent months. Elmhurst can be proud of its beautiful buildings and scenic backgrounds. The recent changes — not the least of which is a new hole in the ground — should add to that pride.

JhsL piau AA. " The Elmhurst College family " some people call it — a family which has grown much bigger in recent years and which con- tinues to grow. The friendly spirit prevailing among administra- tration, faculty, students, and workers is an asset of which ' Elm- hurst may justly be proud. Dr. Henry W. Dinkmeyer Faith in Elmhurst and those that make up the college, students and faculty alike, is the quality that has made its new presi- dent very popular on the campus. His warm interest and great hopes for the future have already shown how much Elmhurst means to him. He is not a stranger to our campus, for he was a student here for four years, which lends even greater personal interest to his work. After attending Elmhurst and Eden, he attained his Bachelor of Divinity from Yale and his Master ' s from the Uni- versity of Chicago, where he has also done additional graduate work. For relaxation he is very fond of fishing or working at his hobby of color photography. Elmhurst welcomes him back. May his presidency be a long and happy one ! 16 CLVfljLMXXqiL pwm, 0Wl fihsMdsunL Mellowed buildings, majestic elms, spacious lawns, kindly professors, exuberant and wholesome youth, music, song, and laughter— these are the things that greet you on the Elmhurst campus. But there are other things — more important — not so tangible. Devotion to the finer things, sensitivity to the need of the world, steadfastness of purpose, honesty, reverence, mu- tuality, friendship, quality of character and richness of spirit— these are the things we cannot picture here. You will discover them only as you meet these young people and learn to know them. May you read enough between the lines to want to cultivate these friendships. I can assure you that they will be most rewarding. Sincerely, H. W. DlNKMEYER BOARD OF DIRECTORS: Front row: Mrs. Albert Ehlers, Mrs. L. W. Goebel, A. E. Hotle, F. W. Rasche, George P. Wirth, Jr., Samuel J. Schmiechen. Back row: Armin Haeussler, W. F. Naefe, George Sonneborn, Edward W. Brueseke, Erwin R. Koch, Edwin J. A. Koch, Michael Baas, Henry W. Dinkmeyer. The Evangelical and Reformed Church exercises general supervision and control over Elmhurst College through the college Board of Directors. The Board meets several times each year. It transacts much of its business through an executive committee which holds frequent meetings at the college. Reverend Erwin R. Koch, D.D., is the present chairman, and the other officers include Mr. George P. Wirth, Jr., vice chairman; Rev. Edwin J. A. Koch, Ph.D., secretary; and Mr. Anton C. Negri, treasurer. Besides these officers, the Board of Directors is divided into several committees, such as the Executive, Faculty and Curriculum, Finance, and Buildings and Grounds Committees. The Board of Directors determines the poli- cies of the college. The members are elected by the General Synod, although some are chosen by the Board itself. The responsibility of securing all the new and various accommodations, such as additional housing facilities, staff members, personnel, and classroom equipment, belongs to the Board. These responsibilities grow heavier every year, as the college itself is growing. This year the Board appointed Mr. Theodore Krohne as Business Manager of the college. Everyone, including the student body, is working to raise money for the new dormitory which is to be erected in the near future. This dormitory is to be built in units, so that it can be added to in years to come. The Board of Directors has set aside several bequests, totaling $11,000, for the dormitory fund. 18 Osjclvl ifi JthsL QoikqsL Alfred Friedli, M.A. B ringing successfully to a close his second year of college administration here at Elmhurst, Alfred Friedli has quickly made the adjustment to his post as Dean. Dean Friedli came to Elmhurst with a wealth of executive experience in the field of Education, and he has helpfully guided the college through these past two years of growing pains as a result of its educational expansion. Every student has come to know Dean Friedli for his friendly smile and inspiring personality which he perpetually displays despite his tre- mendous task of setting up curriculum schedules. Moreover, he willingly listens to each and every student problem, although this is not his official task. Dean Friedli with all of his technical obliga- tions still finds time, nevertheless, to keep that intimate relationship with the student body through his classes in Psychology and Sociology. (DsmLD SiudsmLL Genevieve Staudt, M.A. To Dean Staudt falls the responsibility of being the encouraging and somewhat parental element here at Elmhurst in her role of dean to the students. To her the students pour out their troubles, whether they be roommate or class difficulties, to an understanding friend who tries to guide them to the solution of these problems. In addition to the students ' personal welfare, Dean Staudt is genuinely interested in producing teachers of the finest type from her classes in Education. She not only presents the theories of education, but she also helps the students to receive actual teaching experience through classroom situations. Dean Staudt will always be remembered for her helping hand which has led many students along their particular paths of life as they journeyed here for a while through the halls of Elmhurst College. 19 FACULTY C.

Upper: Miss Jane Beckman, secretary to Mr. Krohne. Lower: General office staff: Mrs. B. Cummings, J. Moore, Miss Gayla Bruce, Mrs. A. Schaeffer. One of the busiest men on campus is none other than our own Business Manager, Mr. Ted Krohne. Mr. Krohne ' s services are in such demand that he has, in addition to his new appointment, retained his old post of Director of Public Relations for the college as well as being the acting secretary for the Alumni As- sociation and the faculty advisor for the Elm Bark, the weekly publication of the Student Union. As Business Manager, Mr. Krohne ' s duties have consisted of such things as the purchasing of new equipment, supervising the use of present equipment, and the procuring of adequate food supplies for the Commons. As Publicity Direc- tor, he has provided means whereby the name and function of Elmhurst College may be kept before the public. To those who know him best, Mr. Krohne, a quiet-spoken man with a genial disposition and a disarming smile, has done much to promote Elmhurst in these last few years in which the enrollment has more than doubled, and has bent every effort to make the students ' stay here at Elmhurst a smooth and pleasant one. He is also handy with a camera. One of the greatest helps to Mr. Krohne in his office in Kranz Hall is the capable help of his faithful secretary, Miss Jane Beckman. To her falls the task of performing the many clerical duties inevitably associated with such an office. Also helping in the work of Public Relations is Miss Williamson, who goes about to the vari- ous high schools and interested groups, using field publicity techniques as a representative of Elmhurst College. The one office that every student invariably enteres before very long is that of the General Office. It is here that all student files are kept and where all reports are .compiled. Those patient ladies who work in the General Office are Mrs. Alma Schaeffer, secretary to President Dinkmeyer; Miss Gayla Bruce, secre- tary to the deans; and Mrs. Bette Cummings, the switchboard operator. The Business Office upstairs in Old Main de- 25 BEHIND THE SCENES Upper left: Mr. Brown, accountant. Upper right: Business office staff: Mrs. Cosgrove, Mrs. Kross. Lower: Student nurses: Jean Thornton, Ruth Johnsen. mands three persons ' full-time attention to keep the books of Elmhurst College in proper order. Mr. Howard Brown, auditor, sees that the books balance; Mrs. Florence L. Cosgrove, bursar, has the job of making the necessary financial arrangements with the students and also distributes student pay . Mrs. Kross also aids in the efficient handling of the financial duties of the college. Serving the students at any emergency, the student-nurses have had a sizeable job giving proper medical treatment, including that of particular cases of mumps and chicken pox which kept cropping out during the winter months. The registered nurses working in the infirmary this year were Ruth Johnsen, Jean Thornton, and Aileen Sterchi. Mrs. Hermann, house mother for the girls in South Hall, has a position comparable to that in children ' s rhyme about the person " who had so many children she didn ' t know what to do. " Miss Diane Low, the new secretary to the School of Music since the beginning of 1949, has proved to be a very pleasant acquaintance with House mother and counsellor of South Hall, Mrs. Hermann.

It is she who takes care of the school ' s business. The technical problems of the campus rest upon its chief engineer, Paul Hein and his helpers such as Roy Wiemerslage and Walter Pfaff who does the carpentry work. Ultimately, when it come to maintenance of the campus, Emil VonderOhe is the man to see. Helping Emil in this task is Birl Mooney, in charge of Irion Hall; his wife, Betty, is in charge of South Hall. Pete Maier takes care of the gym and sets up the chairs and bleachers. Inga Albright, the chief cook and dietician for the Commons, has the huge task of feeding the hungry line of students three times each day. Those helping her are Nellie Caldwell, Grace Marwood, and Amelia Wagner. Their jobs get bigger every year, but they seem to handle the task admirably. Mrs. E. Voigt has always faithfully carried out her duties as hostess and matron of Commons.

SENIOR OFFICERS: Seated: George Langeler, pres- ident. Standing: Edith Mae George, secretary; Marvin Engelsdorfer, treasurer; James Schneider, vice-president. WHO ' S WHO Each year, the authors of Who ' s Who among College Students in American Universities and Colleges compile a list of the outstanding senior students of that year, basing their choice upon such things as high scholastic achievements, leadership, ability, character, and willingness to cooperate as indicated in extra-curricular ac- tivities. Elmhurst College students have been included in this book since 1941. It is a widely known fact that this volume provides a source book for industries and businesses and makes possible a wide variety of benefits for prospective employers as well as for the graduating students who are listed in the publication. This year nine Elmhurst College seniors have been honored by inclusion in the 1949 edition of Who ' s Who. They are Lois Sonneborn, Mary- Louise Olsson, Ruth Stoerker, Daniel Lehmann, August Molnar, James Schneider, George Langeler, Paul Achtemeier, and Warren Mc- Govney. This past year showed the biggest senior class in Elmhurst ' s history enjoying its final year at the college. Many hours were spent worrying about such things as a shortage of senior college hours and grade points. Catching up on activi- ties for which they never could find time also gave them a more than crowded schedule — but they enjoyed it immensely. The senior informal and the Student-Faculty Show were their projects for the year. The show again came through with the same high reputa- tion that it has always had. A Senior Week program planned as a final celebration for the class was very well organized so that everyone was assured of an enjoyable time. The contribution of the combined treasury and proceeds of the Student-Faculty Show to the New Dormitory Fund constituted the senior class gift. It is hoped that the senior interest in this project will light the way for those who follow. WHO ' S WHO MEMBERS: Sealed: Lois Sonneborn Mary Louise Olsson, Ruth Stoerker. Standing: Dan Lehmann, Gus Molnar, James Schneider, George Langeler, Paul Achtemeier, Warren McGovney. 2S 1%9 LOOKING BACK This year ' s graduating class has a very inte- resting and proud history. Strangely enough, they were a week late in starting their freshman vear because of the renovation of South Hall as a residence for women. However, during that first year they easily made the transition from green frosh to a well organized group of men and women. They were the first of the " big " classes at Elmhurst, numbering about 150. As they progressed into their sophomore year, they staged one of the finest semi-formals ever presented at Elmhurst. The Student-Faculty show, a " first " with this class, was one of the outstanding contributions to the social life of the college; another " first " with the " forty-niners " was the Elmhurst College Directory, which has become an annual publication. Continuing into their junior year, the ever- increasing enrollment spurred the class on to even greater achievements. The Directory, the Student-Faculty show, and the Prom were their major projects that year. All three were better than ever before. The S-F show was greatly en- hanced by the addition of the Lamplighters; the Prom, held at the Medinah Country Club, represented a great deal of well organized work and planning and provided a wonderful evening for all who attended. The senior year was one of even greater con- tributions to Elmhurst. A fine Student-Faculty show was presented in March as a contribution to the dormitory fund. The Directory was pre- sented to the sophs as their project. Graduation requirements, practice teaching, applications to graduate schools, and applications for positions in the business world filled the hours of the seniors. Senior week and commencement were planned with great care. The Class of 1949 has a record of which they can be justly proud; as a class they were tops. They have spanned the gap from the time when Elmhurst was a school of 250 students to the present time when it has an enrollment of 760 students. 29 SENIORS p -j Paul J.

Standing: Geraldine Kappe, secretary; John Smith, treasurer; Robert Deufel, vice-president. School spirit is a deeply entrenched feeling at Elmhurst and the members of the Junior class have strived to prove themselves " loyal sons and daughters " . Renewing the Homecoming parade gave the class a chance to make a float. On the float three witches boiled a " Carthage " player in a huge black pot. Their talents brou ght them a close second in a very successful parade. This year, as in the past, the Juniors had the responsibility — and fun — of managing the con- cessions at football and basketball games. Every- one pitched in and worked to raise money for the Prom and the class gift. We really learned how to manage a budget and pay our bills on time. The annual Junior Prom is the Juniors ' most outstanding contribution to the social life at Elmhurst. This is the only formal dance of the year and the highlight of the season. It was held this year at the beautiful Medinah Country Club. Co-chairmen of the 1949 Junior Prom, Sue Simpson and Bill Behr. Rehearsing for an act in the Juniors ' successful minstrel, " Alabama Jubilee. ' - 42 r a To help finance the cost of the Prom, Juniors become super salesmen of cokes, candy, and taffy apples. Reigning over the 1949 Junior Prom were Pam Miller, Queen Gerry Kappe, and Sue Esthus. 1950 JUNIOR PROM One part jubilant spirits and two parts warm hearts-touched off with a dash of starry eyes and taken as directed. Such a recipe is concocted each year at Elmhurst as the merry monthof May sounds the arrival of Prom time. This year found no exception, to be sure, for again the Junior Class at Elm- hurst, sponsor and co-financier, presented the gala affair. Repeat performances were in order, not only as to the same high quality, but also as to the location. The Class of ' 50 found it wise to follow in the footsteps of their " elders " , and so again Medinah Coun- try Club became the setting for the cream of our campus social events. The evening began with a palate-pleasing buffet supper served in the Grand Ballroom. Later the scintillating rhythms of Johnny Holbrook and his orchestra set the pace for the remainder of the evening. Midway in the elaborate affair the Queen and her Court were introduced and crowned by Roland Radloff, class president. To initiate her reign the Queen then led the Grand March. As is customary, the knowledge of the Queen and her attendants was kept in deepest secrecy; from the time of voting to the night of the Prom, nothing was revealed. This year ' s Queen and her Court were all native Illinoisians. The Queen was Gerry Kappe from Beecher, Illinois, while her two attendants, Sue Esthus and pam Miller, claimed Chicago and Free- port respectively as their home towns. So as the formals and tuxedos are hidden away for another year, thanks are extended to the entire Junior Class for their splendid efforts, particularly, congratulations are given to Co-chairmen Sue Simpson and Bill Behr, and to the various committee workers.

Every class in every school claims to be the best possible, but with the class of ' 51, it is more than mere boasting. With an ambitious spirit of activity and cooperation, the sophomores really get things done. The record of this class is a tribute to its members. The first job of the year was to elect officers. From a class with many potential leaders, a cabinet of four was chosen. The sophomores worked hard to make their semi-formal dance on November 20 a success. Following the theme, ' ' Deep Purple, " they trans- formed the gym into a dreamland of beauty, which, when filled with soft music, made the dance one of the best of the year. The seniors gave the class of ' 51 the job of publishing the Student Directory. It was a big responsibility, but with the cooperation from all its members, the sophomore class put out a good one. The members of the class of ' 51 have learned much during the last two years of living and working together, and they now feel that they are prepared to spend the next two years as leaders of Elmhurst College.

A most important characteristic of a student of Elmhurst College — friendliness — is embodied in the class of nineteen hundred and fifty-two. At the beginning of the school year they ex- hibited this friendliness by giving an excellent Freshman Mixer which helped everyone to become better acquainted. And whenever it came to supporting school activities, the fresh- men were there with bells on! The annual Freshman Dance in the spring, always looked forward to by the upperclassmen, was a big success. Although class officers weren ' t elected until after Christmas vacation, the class still worked together before this time as well as afterwards, giving a good account of themselves. Dr. De- Bruine was chosen class advisor at the time officers were elected in January. With a year of college life behind them, look for important things from this class! Incoming freshmen are treated to a get-together picnic as a part of Freshman Week. The week ' s activities helped the new students to become acquainted with the college and their new classmates.

They were student nurses who came to Elmhurst College three days a week to take biology and chemistry in regular classes. After the first year, they will continue their work at the hospital until they have finished their nurses ' training. Elmhurst gives forty-five semester hours credit for completion of nurses ' training after passing the State Board and after receiving an R. N. degree. The nurses then come back and take an additional seventy-five semester hours of work. After meeting graduation requirements, the nurses receive a B.S. degree.

Athletics, music, dramatics, publications, club meetings, religious activities, midnight bull sessions, and weekend social activities all contribute to college life; aided by such things as exams and grade reports, most of us also attempt to give the textbooks their share of our time! The one organization of which all Elmhurst College students are members is the Student Union. Through its elected cabinet and monthly assembly meetings, this organization attempts to unify all students as a working unit and to regulate all matters pertaining to student life. Campus activities, such as Athletics, Chapel, Publications, Social Life, and Library are co- ordinated by standing committees. This year a special committee also did a great deal of work on recommendations for changes in the S.U. constitution. It was the special Dormitory Fund Committee which supervised and coordinated all student contributions towards the fund. This committee cooperated closely with the administration in this drive. Working behind the scenes at nearly all campus social events was the Student Lmion Electrical Committee. It was through their efforts that the proper mood was set for various social activities. Renis and Trnka this year joined Krebill and Lan- geller as members of the all-important Electrical Com- mittee.

Long before the school year begins, the Council on Social Life and Relationships has scheduled nearly all of the social events, con- certs, theater productions, and meetings that are to occur during the year. One of the main duties of this group is its work on the plans for welcoming the new stu- dents during Freshman Week. The Calendar Committee has the thankless job of scheduling meetings with as few conflicts as possible; they meet in Dean Staudt ' s office each Tuesday. It is the Special Parties and Programs Com- mittee that plans activities for those rare week- ends when no other organization has scheduled an event. The Resource Committee is the group that has all students fill out activity preference sheets at registration. These information sheets prove valuable to many of the other campus groups.

Senior " forty-niners " take first place with their float in Saturday ' s parade. 1948 HOMECOMING Three days laden with fun, excitement and happiness for everybody; three days that will never be forgotten — that ' s Homecoming! These are the days when old friendships are renewed and alumni return to their old college haunts to carry away new memories. This year, more than any other, they could be heard commenting on the many changes and saying. " I remember when — " . October 22, 23, and 24 was the weekend which was packed full of traditional events. Homecoming began Friday afternoon when the college, with open arms and high spirits, wel- comed back its alumni and friends. Everv building underwent a face-lifting with Juanita Rende and Tex Haertig in charge of operations. The entire campus was jumping with life that afternoon as students hurriedly finished preparations for the weekend. Spot lights were placed in front of Old Main and the committees working on each building hoisted a checkerboard arrangement of pasteboard cards that spelled out the year the building was built. The Frosh, having successfully guarded their collection of wood and boxes, began to form them into a huge pyramid topped with a dummy of Carthage, the opponent in the Home- coming game, in readiness for that night. The first official gathering began early Friday evening with a banquet for the alumni held in " Ye Olde Commons " . Here they had the oppor- tunitv to talk over old times and discuss the many changes seen on campus, Student talent provided entertainment for the event. Just before the banquet terminated, the class of ' 52 formed a torch parade that led from the Commons to the gym grounds where they tossed their blazing flares onto the bonfire. Igniting the pile of brush opened the traditional pep rally. Cheers were shouted, rousing music was played by the college band, speeches were made and for the first time the Homecoming Queen and " 4 HOMECOMING her Court were presented to the students and friends of Elmhurst. Long before the flames began to die down, the college auditorium was filled to capacity. Not only did a student write the complete Home- coming musical comedy, but the same student also directed it. The young genius is Elmhurst ' s Danny Lehmann. If applause is an indication of success, Danny and his brilliant cast know the pleasure and entertainment they brought to all. The musical, " No Reservations " was the story of a college which was going to have to send away students because there was not any place for them to live. It so happened, though, that among the students there was the bashful son of a famous millionaire. The story began to go into fast action when the wealthy man promised to provide for a new dorm if his son would overcome his shyness. Ralph Klein played the millionaire; Bob Manley portrayed his son. Other principals were Bud Achtemeier, Martha Ostenkamp, and Gladys Kunzer. Bright and early the next morning the grads arose for the All-Star-Alumni football game. The All-Stars proved to be the victorious ones. All morning long, throughout the campus, floats were being frantically put together for the afternoon parade. Around 1 :00 o ' clock cars lined up and the parade was on. To the tunes of the college band, the students proudly displayed their ingenuity as the parade moved down town and then circled back to the college. This was the first Homecoming parade since 1939; only through the full cooperation of the student body was it possible for it to be the success it was. The parade encircled the field; and as it passed the judges stand, the senior class was awarded the first prize. In keeping with their class, the ' 49ers presented a car decorated as a covered wagon. The Junior Class float won second prize with three witches boiling Carthage in a large pot. Another clever float was the one created by the Sophomores. It was a surrey carrying a dummy of Carthage in it; a sign on it read: " Taking The Homecoming court: Carol Starks, Shirley Huntman, Elaine Bloxom, Edith May George, Queen Mary Louise Olsson, Gladys Kunzer, Meri Lyn Hartman, Ruth Miller. 75 HOMECOMING Carthage for a Ride " . A live cow bearing a sign, " This ain ' t no Bull " followed the surrey. Other floats in the parade were sponsored by dorms and major campus organizations. On Saturday afternoon, the traditional Homecoming football game was played against Carthage College. Despite the fact that the stu- dents had been promised a day off on the follow- ing Monday if the team was victorious, Elmhurst lost. Despite the disappointment of the Home- coming game with Carthage, the grads were shown that the spirit of Elmhurst wasn ' t dampened. At half time there was an impressive ceremony during which the Homecoming Queen, Mary Louise Olsson, was crowned by President Dinkmeyer; and her court, including Edith May George, Gladys Kunzer, Elaine Bloxom, Merrilyn Hartman, Shirley Huntman, Ruth Miller, and Carol Starks, were presented with bouquets. Neither team had scored at the half, leaving both teams expectant. But the second half was gloomy, for Carthage overtook us 18 to 0. The climax of the weekend came that evening at the dance. The gym was decorated in keeping with the theme, " The Inaugural Ball " . The guests were greeted at the door by the Queen Scenes from " No Reservations, ' - the original revue by Dan Lehmann.

The end of the festive dance came all too soon and the lovely fantasy faded away. Another Homecoming tradition of Elmhurst was held on Sunday with the annual Home- coming service at St. Peter ' s Church. The Chapel choir sang and Rev. Charles W. Sch- wantes delivered the address. In the afternoon the Elmhurst College School of Music presented their traditional musical. A new member of the faculty, Miss Elizabeth Humphrey was intro- duced to the audience through her brilliant songs. The Polyhymnia, under the direction of Miss Humphrey, and the Men ' s Glee Club, directed by Mr. Keith Smejkal, were featured on the program. As the final day of the weekend drew to a close, the alumni and friends of Elmhurst gave their farewells and pledged to return again next year.

The School of Music of Elmhurst College during the past year has offered some of the finest opportunities for students to participate in musical organizations, for which Elmhurst is justly proud. This year, under the supervision of its new director, Professor Harry John Brown, the School of Music has been able to provide a well-rounded musical program to all with the aid of veteran music instructors along with several new staff members. It was not long until every student could recognize Professor Brown ' s effervescent per- sonality and musical accomplishments which contributed to his popularity with the student body, especially with those who have a genuine appreciation of music. Other new instructors in the School of Music include Mr. John Leo Lewis, organ instructor; Miss Fischer, piano instructor; Mrs. Hernandez, piano instructor; CHAPEL CHOIR: Front row: G. Janssen: K.

As all Irion Hall residents are fully aware, the School of Music occupies much of the basement and first floor of that building. From early morn- ing until night it is possible to hear aspiring musicians vocalising or practicing on piano, organ, violin, trumpet, or some other musical instrument. Vacant practice rooms were indeed a rarity, serving as an indication of the popu- larity of the many opportunities for musical expression offered by this section of the college. One of the noted musical organizations is the Polyhymnia under the direction of Miss Humphrey. This all-woman chorus has done some notable work in its particular line and has appeared in programs such as those given at Homecoming, Christmas, and in the chapel- assembly programs.

Smejkal. This organization has made a spectacular re- vival during this past year towards rivaling its pre-war calibre of musical contribution. Elmhurst is indeed fortunate to have such a group representing its educational institution, for in addition to many local appearances, the Glee Club has entertained during the past year such organizations as the Elmhurst Women ' s Club at its meeting at the Medinah Country Club and has appeared at various suburban churches throughout the Chicagoland area. This year the Glee Club was privileged to make two extended trips throughout various sections of the LTnited States. For their fall trip the men traveled throughout the states of Illinois and Missouri shortly before the Christmas vacation period. The club was warmly received by all who were privileged to hear it demonstrate something of what Elmhurst has to offer in the way of educational activities. On its spring trip, during the Easter holidays, this group journeyed to the East and South to visit the various Evangelical and Reformed churches in that area. Radio appearances were also made by the group. This year the Glee Club members were privileged to enhance their personal appearances with their newly purchased suits of navy blue. Another integral part of the musical program of the college is that of the Chapel Choir under the direction of Professor Brown. During the past vear the Chapel Choir has presented some of the finest in sacred music for its contributions to the chapel-assembly worship services held twice each week in the college gymnasium. Singing in chapel, however, has not been the only obligation of the Chapel Choir; for it has appeared in various musical programs as the guest choir for various local churches, both for regular Sunday morning worship services and concert programs. 80 MUSIC The Elmhurst College Mixed Chorus has been an important organization on campus for the presentation of song, both sacred and secular. This group, led by Professor Brown, makes its annual contributions to the big musical pro- grams of the year, which include the Christmas candlelight service and the Spring concert. The Elmhurst College School of Music has two fine instrumental musical groups. One of these organizations is the Elmhurst Community Orchestra. This group is composed of members of the community in addition to the members of the Elmhurst College family. The two big appearances for this group are the Christmas program and the Spring Concert. Professor Brown also conducts the orchestra. The musical group on campus which probably has contributed more than any other to the Elmhurst school spirit has been the Elmhurst College Band. After being somewhat neglected through the war years, the Elmhurst College Band has come back with greater strength and has contributed vitally to such college activities as football and basketball games, to the annual Woman ' s Union Circus, and to pep rallies. The band was also afforded the privilege of playing for Sam Campbell ' s appearance here on campus at which time a fund was begun for the pur- chasing of new uniforms for the band members. Although quite busy with his other duties, Pro- fessor Brown manages to find time to supervise the work of the band as well. The burden of this additional load was greatly alleviated by the excellent work of Frank Vogel who ably assisted in the directing responsibilities of the band. To Frank goes much of the credit for ironing out the technical difficulties which have had to be smoothed out before each and every appearance which the Elmhurst College Band made this year.

Pulling off one of its weekend miracles. Social Life presented " Red River Daze " , and some of the " get-ups " , to say nothing of the sights, were enough to make one see red (barns). The biggest weekend of all was, of course, Homecoming — with no classes and everyone crowding to see Danny Lehmann ' s " No Reserva- tions " and shining up real purty for the Home- coming Dance. Another of the highlights of the Sophomores ' " Deep Purple " proves to be one of the year ' s outstanding social events. weekend was Dr. Goebel ' s announcement to a highly optimistic and spirited student body that he would back Elmhurst to the fullest in its dormitory-building enterprise. The vigorous political campaigning of the mock presidential election was culminated on the next Friday. Each party in the election was represented in chapel by a speaker who voiced the platform which his candidate professed. The elections, which were held following the speeches, gave the victory to Governor Dewey by a 2-1 margin. The first of the " woman-grab-your-man " affairs came in the form of the Sadie Hawkins Dance on November 6th. " Marryin ' Sam " , in the person of Professor Halfter, was there, shot- gun and all, just to make everything legal. The Sophomore Semiformal made the transi- tion from the gaiety of the barn dance to the dreamy depths of " Deep Purple " and the soft melodic music of Paul Meeker ' s orchestra.

Once again the kids from the Bensenville and Uhlich homes, to say nothing of the open-mouthed college kids, were treated to an evening of solid entertainment by the side- shows and comical skits of the various organiza- tions, all in an atmosphere created by wild " animals " , roguish clowns, and the Elmhurst College " Circus " Band. A fortnight later, the Theatre featured the progressive " arena staging " method in the production of its delightful comedy, " Mr. Pim Passes By " . An orphan guest surveys the clowns and an enormous ice cream cone at the Women ' s Union Circus. 85 WEEKENDS On March 12th, the Juniors gave the college something in the form of a minstrel show. " Alabama Jubilee " . The third annual Student-Faculty Show was indeed an uproarious riot which had everyone splitting at the seams with laughter. This show, which was sponsored by the Senior Class, who donated the proceeds to the new-dormitory fund, typified the fine spirit of cooperation and friendliness existing between the students and the faculty on this campus. March fifth, South Hall opened its doors to the other five housing units and gave the fellows a chance to see that all of the girls are the " domestic " type, with beautiful, frilly and effeminate rooms. In return, the boys opened up Irion Hall three weeks later to prove that what most of the men need is someone to add that beautifying, feminine touch to the usual crude, utilitarian arrangements. The climax of the year ' s dances was the Junior Prom which was held at the Medinah Country Club. Here lovely young women danced with cheerful, tuxedoed gentlemen to the sweet sophisticated music of Johnny Hol- brook.

ELMHURST COLLEGE THEATRE If a person honestly likes to act and to feel the thrill as the audience becomes captivated; if he likes the hard work and excitment of backstage jobs and enjoys sharing the immediate feelings of the actors; if he takes pleasure in working among the many colored paints, the rolls of white canvas, and the stacks of lumber in the sceneshop, then the place for this person is the Elmhurst College Theatre. The purpose of our College Theatre is " to appeal to all and only those who possess an interest in the theatre. " Anyone may join, but he must be willing to work for his membership. During their period of training, those who join the theatre are known as " guppies " . By the end of the year they must have earned at least a minimum of seventy-five hours, part of which must be earned by participating in at least two major productions. The " guppies " must also attend regularly the monthly meetings held in the sceneshop. Each spring the " guppies " go through an informal initiation, which is in reality an oral examination. Those who have passed the examination, and who are eligible from the standpoint of the active members, are honored by membership at a formal ini tiation and ban- quet. At the formal initiation the new members are presented with the attractive and well- known black and gold pin. The theatre should look over this year with a great deal of pride, for it has gone far beyond normal expectations. For the first time in its history, the college theatre has presented five major productions, one more than had ever been staged before. Once again Dan Lehmann wrote the excellent Homecoming Revue, " No Reservations " , but this time he also directed it, as a member of Professor Arends ' directing class, and did a fine job.

The Shake- spear performance was given at York audi- torium. For the first time every seat in the auditorium was filled. It was a gala evening and " Hamlet ' ' was acclaimed a real success. To prove it, the Chicago Sun-Times wrote: " The audience was alternately rapt and enthusiastic. " And the Chicago Journal said: " The company did ' Hamlet ' in sterling style for the Elmhurst College Theatre. " Next on the list of achievements was the pre- sentation of " Our Town " in December. This play, written by Thornton Wilder, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1938. It portrays a slice of our American life. Ralph Klein gave his best and last performance in " Our Town " , as the nar- rator or " stage manager " . Saturday night ' s performance was dedicated to Ralph. The whole cast did their best to make the play a really good one. " Mr. Pirn Passes By " was given in February. For this play arena staging; was used for the first time. In April four one-act plays were staged, directed by Professor Arends ' directing class and planned and produced by his theat re production class. One of the new additions to our theatre this year is a modern dimmer board upon which Ruth Stoerker and Ralph Kroehler, electricians, have spent much of their time. It is still in the process of being built, but the part that is finished is now in use. Another new addition is our membership in the American National Theatre and Academy. The Register, a calendar of theatre activities, has again been distributed to members and " guppies " . Also there have been several parties to Chicago theatres. ss THEATRE p. resent in 9 THE ELMS COURT Miss Ruth Miller Miss Merri Lyn Hartman Miss Sue Esthus the cHm$ C i ueen By an all-student vote.

THE ELMS The Elms staff worked hard this year to pre- sent a book which would satisfy the need to remember those wonderful college days of 1 948- 49. Both the formal and informal pictures and the write ups will help to recall the friendships, fun, games, dances, and, last but not least, the hard work that comes with all of this. The Elms office was always busy, being filled with typists, proof readers, writers, and the like. There were also times when the editor was there alone, working and worrying to meet the dead- line. And here is the result of all that work. It is the sincere hope of the entire staff that they have produced a book of which Elmhurst College can take pride. ELM BARK STAFF: Front row: N.

It came out with serious editorials, letters to the editor, Gezzoo, Now and Then, Shoe and Sweat Sock, and the rest, and was read through and through by all. Of course, there was the day when the Bark failed to appear be- cause a page of type had fallen and was all scrambled together, but that ' s all part of the printer ' s life. The typewriters are always clicking away, and the Bark staff is kept busy meeting their weekly deadlines. Chatter is passed back and forth between this office and that of the Elms next door. But the confusion is really not as great as it seems, for the Elm Bark gets better with each issue. 95 Upper: Dick Lambrecht at the mike waits for the signal from director Paul Krebill and Technician Phil Gruenke.

COVERING THE CAMPUS THE WIRED RADIO SYSTEM " The Low Spot on Your Dial " has come a long way since its first broadcast on Saturday morning of the 1947 Homecoming. Since then the methods of operation have been improved so that the station is now a smoothly functioning unit. Musical programs have been emphasized most, with the station supplying both classical and popular entertainment. Of these programs, recordings of the " G. I. Symphony " under the direction of Harry John Brown was one of the outstanding broadcasts. Extremely interesting was the production of " The Kiss of Judas " , a play written by Mark Stephenson, an Elmhurst student. Other special programs included wire recordings of Rheinhold Niebuhr ' s talk before the Chicago Sunday Evening Club, the Eden Seminary choir, and several Blue Jay basketball games. Reflecting the quiz and give-away trend in radio was " Dananay ' s Double Alarm " which added a touch of humor to the schedule. Pro- grams sponsored by campus organizations helped fill out each day ' s two hours of broad- casting. RADIO STAFF: Front row: D. Vogel; G. Novack; B. Wilks, treasurer; P. Krebill, director; L.

The Class of ' 48 be- queathed a splendid camera and accessories to the school, and the camera club has used this equipment in conjunction with the public relations office and the campus publications, taking pictures of social functions and other special events. The club had all the necessary darkroom equipment and the money to construct a dark- room, but it was hampered until late in the year by a lack of space and facilities. The membership of this organization is limited to only those who are interested in learning camera technique. There are no other restrictions, so only the will to join and cooperate is necessary. Meetings are held twice a month during the noon hour. COVERING THE CAMPUS CAMERA CLUB OFFICERS: Edward Johnson, presi- dent; Mamoru Fujioka, vice-president; Jack Rubins, publicity manager; " Pauline Lavin, secretary-treasurer. ELM LEAVES The Elm Leaves, a literary publication of Miss Chrisman ' s creative writing class, is celebrating its third successful year of existence. This magazine gives the aspiring young poet, essayist, or short story writer a chance to see how he measures up to the standards of others in his medium. The choice of subject matter is un- limited and the article may be written in a humorous, tragic, or satirical mood or a com- bination of any of these. Each edition is dedicated to some faculty member who has devoted a large portion of his life for the betterment of Elmhurst College. This time the honor was bestowed upon Pro- fessor Carlson, who has served Elmhurst for twenty-five years as professor of English. The entries were judged by faculty members and other competent authorities. A prize was awarded for the best work in each field. ELM LEAVES STAFF: Front Row: D. Joens; V.

They meet once a month, when they help things to run more smoothly by sewing, repairing, and mending. Some of the members assist the pub- licity department. At times, problems are pre- sented at the meetings and discussed. This year the Auxiliary made new green curtains for the gymnasium. They also donated $500 to the new dormitory fund and $125 to help decorate the Student Union lounge. The officers this year were Mrs. Friedli, president; Mrs. Langeler, secretary; and Mrs. Jones, treasurer. Ladies of the Auxiliary hard at work. " Mdwul ' INTER-DORM COUNCIL: Seated: G. Kappe, secretary; Mrs. Hermann; J. LeGros, president; L. Sonneborn; J. Thornton. Standing: B. Spies; Mr. Koenig; C. Fischer; Dean Staudt; Dean Friedli; M. Pepmeier; D. Geist; P. Hanebutt. SOUTH HALL This year South Hall was the campus " home " to 125 girls. There were a few minor changes in the dorm. Three Junior girls lived in what had been the nurses ' room. Several girls lived above Commons, as there was no room in South Hall. Mrs. Hermann took charge as house-mother, and many a girl sought refuge in her rooms to talk out her problems. The Senior girls renewed the tradition of having class get-togethers in the recreation room, with plenty of food and small-talk. Plans were put under way to redecorate and refurnish the study room in the basement, mak- ing it into a combination study and lounge. The Women ' s Auxiliary donated new beige drapes for the lounges. Also, a beautiful black walnut china closet was given to the Women ' s Union by an Elmhurst family and was placed in South Hall ' s lounge. It contains the Women ' s Union silver and dishes. Lois Sonneborn was elected president, and Gerry Kappe was secretary-treasurer of the house council. IRION HALL Housing the greatest number of men living on the campus is Irion Hall, which also houses the chapel, school of music, and publications offices. Cal Fischer, president, and Blaine Spies, secretary, assisted by Mr. Koenig and the dorm council, guide the activities of Irion ' s male population. It is here that the occupants spend many hours of out-of-class time. Relaxation is not lacking, as can easily be seen by the large number of men making use of the lounge for newspaper and magazine reading and for checker, chess, and card games. The recreation room, open to all students, received a new pool table this year. Its popularity is proved by its almost constant use. Two ping pong tables and several card tables are also located in the rec room. Life in Irion is constantly governed by a spirit of cooperation and harmony. South Hall residents gather around the piano in the lounge. Irion Hall chess players find no shortage of kibitzers. Surrounded by tall elms, the Lodge is the home of many upperclassmen. Away from the general rush of the campus are the three veterans ' " cottages " . " HOME " LIFE THE LODGE The Lodge is the home away from home for sixteen upperclassmen. The group, headed by the " Pope " , as the president is called, uses the co-operative system of house cleaning. Max Pepmeier is the current Pope and Dick Selmer is the secretary-treasurer. It is here, in the Lodge, that a fraternal atmosphere may be found. The residents buy their own newspapers and pay their own tele- phone bills. Doing their own janitor service insures the financial status. Evening devotions complete the busy college routine of study, fun, and fellowship. The boys are indebted to Mrs. Ladiges for her Christmas party that she gives them each year just before the Christmas vacation. Instead of the annual Lodge party in the spring, the members voted to buy Lodge Keys. These keys will be a symbol in years to come of many close knit, fond memories of Elmhurst College and the Lodge. VETERANS 1 HOUSING Independent government reigns in the " cot- tages " , " shacks " , " barracks " , or any other name one might wish to give to the veterans 1 housing units. These three structures, located between the gym and the cemetery, are presided over this year by James LeGros and Dave Geist. Although they are very unimposing struc- tures from the outside, the occupants have turned them into very comfortable and attrac- tive living quarters. After three years, the walls of many of the rooms were in need of paint. Therefore, the occupants furnished the labor for redecorating their rooms. It may be true that many of the fellows got as much paint on them- selves as they did on the walls, but no one will deny that all of the three room units now look much better. It means a long trek to the heart of the campus in all kinds of weather, but the vets enjoy the hours they spend studying, talking, and celebrat- ing in their quarters. 100 GYM ANNEX The freshman fellows of Elmhurst College have the peculiar distinction of living in a swimming pool. The area now known as the Annex was originally destined to be a swimming pool, but when construction was delayed, the hole was covered and a series of partitions in- stalled to form small rooms to house almost thirty residents. Living in comparative comfort, the boys enjoy the added luxury of a lounge and telephone, both of which are popular centers of gathering. In its second year of existence, the Annex boys of the Class of ' 52 elected their officers as follows: Ralph Weltge, president; Bill Nagy, vice president; and Carl Graham, secretary. The group is under the supervision of these officers and upperclassman Paul Hanebutt, who lives with the boys and tries to keep law and order according to the rules of the fellows themselves. The Annex, sometimes known as " Pool Hall, " is an unusual and important part of Elmhurst " dorm " life. Commuting students find the Kranz Hall Lounge a good place to visit between classes. " Pool Hall " residents enjoy a friendly game of cards before returning to their books. " HOME " LIFE COMMUTERS The commuters, or " day-hops, " number over half of the college ' s students. They come from all parts of the Chicago area, and sometimes farther. The Northwestern, Aurora and Elgin, and busses carry many of them here to Elmhurst. Most of the commuters spend their out-of- class time in the Student Union rooms, playing cards, smoking, talking, and eating Mrs. Baker ' s wonderful pie with a cup of S.U. coffee. The lounge on the. first floor of Kranz Hall was redecorated this year, and you ' ll find many students there. Of course, many of the girls spend lots of time in " 27 " of Old Main — the women ' s lounge. This year, all commuting students who drive to school were required to have parking stickers for their cars. Much needed parking space was made ready for them on the campus. The commuters are active in all campus affairs, and there is a great deal of cooperation between campus and off-campus students. 101 Each Monday and Friday morning students and faculty gather in the gym for chapel-assemblies. flsdiqwfL PRE-THE COMMITTEE: R. Kasper; Mr. Wehrli, advisor; D. Gerber; R. Maisch, chairman; D. Engels- dorfer. To meet the religious needs of the students, the Administration, through the Student- Faculty Religious Life committee, sponsors chapel assemblies on Mondays and Fridays as well as vesper services on Tuesdays and Thurs- days. Chapel offers to students fellowship and information of a religious nature. The Student Christian Association is the student organization that strives to meet the religious needs of the college family. It reaches the student body through monthly general meetings, through a semester retreat, and through the activities of its standing committees. The Religious Life committee is in charge of Sunday morning matins, Lenten vespers, and other devotional programs. The Pre-The, Christian Ed. committee ex- amines problems relating to the ministry and Christian service work through monthly general meetings. This group joined the SCA only this year. 102 Christians-in-Discussion committee examines church concepts and activities through a weekly program of informal discussion. Such topics as " Why Believe in Christ? " , " The Meaning of Faith " , and " The Church and Pacifism " are discussed. This year the CID gave special attention to the work of saving missions. The Social Justice committee recommends and inaugurates patterns of thought and action on major social issues. This year the committee took charge of a mock presidential campaign and election, a clothing drive, a student relief drive, and the world fellowship drive. It also inaugurated a World Faith series, which in- cluded prominent speakers of non-Protestant faiths. The theme of the series was " finding out the other side " . The program and publicity chairmen publi- cize and coordinate the SCA general activities and special committes actions. Because of the growing religious diversity on campus, the SCA is faced with a new chal- lenge, how to reach students of all faiths. CHRISTIANS IN DISCUSSION: Front Row: H. Whetstone, chairman; R.

Students were asked to take an acti ve part in the meetings by offering- anecdotes, skits, poems, stories, and other items of interest to students of German. The residents of Irion Hall depicted a typical card game and bull session — " auf deutsch " . Dr. Wadepuhl, at one meeting, gave an interesting lecture on Goethe, about whom he is an authority. Since the meetings were conducted partly in German and partly in English, even beginning German students could derive benefit from them. Norman Geyer took over the presidency second semester. The club decided also to back the German band, which played at many of the meetings. In cooperation with the Hungarian club, a typical European dance was held for the entire student body in the spring. LE CIRCLE FRANCAIS Le Circle Francais, the Elmhurst College French Club, continues as one of the active language clubs on the campus. In order to create and stimulate an interest in the French language and culture, various programs were prepared upon various French themes. After discussions which were held in the French language, the gathering participated in the singing of French songs and the playing of French folk games. Climaxing the evenings was the serving of French refreshments. The discussions were extremely timely and interesting, including the new trend in modern literature, French customs, and Jean-Paul Sartre ' s philosophy of existentialism. At one meeting a comedy by Moliere was produced by the students. Miss Jane Sherwin, instructor of French, was advisor of the club this year. Under her spon- taneous leadership, this enthusiastic company- has experienced much enjoyment in the ap- preciation of its social activities. MAGYAR CLUB The Hungarian Club, which is in its third year of existence on the Elmhurst College camp- us, was greeted with success in all of its under- takings. This year, the Magyars presented two entirely unusual plays, " The Village Sparrow " , a drama, and " Biliboh Before the Law " , a comedy which reflected the latest trends in the Hungarian theatre, before Hungarian audiences in various major Midwestern cities. The Club took five trips, which led them as far east as Toledo and Cleveland, and north to Racine and Milwaukee. Many cities close to Chicago were also visited. The purpose of the club ' s efforts was to secure funds for the Hungarian Student Aid Fund. New officers were elected second semester. They were Joe Degi, president; Al Kovacs, vice-president; and Priscilla Arvay, secretary- treasurer. Dr. Dienes, head of the Hungarian depart- ment, was on leave in Europe. In his absence, Rev. Desmond Parragh is carrying on as in- structor of Hungarian and as advisor to the Hungarian Club. CLUB SUD AMERICA Is it a wonder this year ' s Spanish Club had one of the largest memberships in the hi story of the organization? After a glimpse into a few of the activities conducted by Mr. Raphael Moyano and President Cheryl Maples, it won ' t be such a mystery. A show at the Globe Theater and dinner at El Puerta de Veracurz rounded out one day ' s activity. Shopping and touring in the Mexican district of Chicago provided another journey. After lessons by Juan Rosado in the art of the rhumba, tango and congo at one of the club meetings, an entire evening was spent at La Sociedad Espanola, a Mexican Club. The meetings were also far from dull. There were panels and discussions on South American countries plus movies taken in South America. A professional singer and two guitar players added to the enjoyment of another night. 105 PSYCHOLOGY CLUB With the addition of a psychology major to the College curriculum this year, membership in the Psychology Club ran high. The " psychologists " under the sponsorship of Mrs. Bieler, provided meetings of a very enjoy- able and entertaining nature. Discussions of individual and group problems of a psycho- logical nature constitute an important part of the programs. Partly because of the homog- eneity of the group and the similarity of many of the problems, the discussions produce helpful and informative results. A feature of club meetings is student participa- tion in the program. The Rohrschach and T.A. T. tests were administered to the group at one meeting — the former being a series of ink blots and the latter a series of suggestive pictures. Their interpretation is based on environment, experience, and personality. Also, Mrs. Bieler discussed and explained various personality tests. One of the last meetings of the year was held in cooperation with the Science Club. SCIENCE CLUB Partly because of the excellence of the Elm- hurst College science department, the Science Club is quickly becoming one of the strongest organizations of the campus. Membership re- quirements for the Science Club consist of presenting to the members for their approval an appropriate project or of presenting to them for their consideration the grades of the prospective member received in a subject in the science department. Club meetings are held monthly and are made up of discussicn groups, speakers, motion pictures, and other activities of a scientific nature. Such speakers appeared this year as Dr. Carl Schmidt, chief curator of the Department of Zoology of Field Museum and Mr. Victor Barth, chief chemist for the Northwestern Rail- road. At a joint meeting with the Philosophy Club, an open forum was held on philosophy and science. SOCIOLOGY CLUB The Sociology Club is open to all students who wish to join. Lectures and projects on current social problems constitute the body of the meeting. From time to time prominent persons in the field of sociology are brought to the campus. All students and faculty members are invited to participate in these meetings. Mrs. Wendell E. Green, an active worker in the National Conference of Christians and Jews, spoke at one of the meetings on the Conference. The American Friends Service ar- ranged a weekend work project, but interest was low among the students. The club meets under the guidance of its sponsor. Dr. Mueller. Because other people who are not members of the club are often interested in the various topics discussed, most of the club ' s meetings are open meetings which the entire student body and faculty are invited to attend. PHILOSOPHY CLUB The Philosophy Club was created to bring together a group of students who were interested in bringing to the campus persons to speak on important issues and to discuss the confusing conflicts and contradictions of life which confuse the thoughtful student. Again this vear these intentions were fulfilled, and the regular monthly meetings provided the opportunity for students to clarify in an informal way through philosophical discussion these fundamental problems which constantly con- front us. The meetings always resulted in en- lightening and enthusiastic discussion and in provocative thought. The Philosophv Club publishes, as an annual project, THE OWL OF MINERVA, for the benefit of the entire student body. In it appear discussions of a philosophical nature written by members of the Faculty, members of the Phil- osophy Club, other students, and distinguished friends of the Philosophy Club. 106 PSYCHOLOGY CLUB STEERING COMMITTEE: Seated: Mrs. Bieler, Charlotte Krivulka.

FIRESIDES Firesides is still a growing organization on campus that arouses interest by lively discussions of timely topics. Groups of students meet at vari- ous professors 1 homes whenever Firesides are scheduled. Two students act as host and hostess and one acts as discussion leader. The atmosphere at these meetings is extremely informal. If chairs are too few, you will find people sitting around on the floor — and really enjoying it. This makes everyone feel " at home, " and even the most quiet students join in when the discussion becomes heated. At some of the meetings such things as how students can help raise money for the new dormitory, how the lack of interest in clubs can be remedied, and the proposed changes in the Student Union constitution were debated. Of course, refreshments are always served and are in keeping with the season. Near Halloween, cider and doughnuts were served, and at Christ- mas, there were popcorn and cokes. All this helps prove that Firesides are interesting and fun. FUTURE TEACHERS The Elmhurst Chapter of the FTA has carried on a varied and active program during the past year. It has had such prominent speakers as Mrs. Wilda Freeburn Faust, the National Secretary of the NEA and Mrs. R. Musile, the director of the Elmhurst Children ' s Theatre. A panel discussion with such speakers as Mr. Hotle, Mr. Hist, and Mrs. Bieler was held and films were shown. A dessert snack luncheon was served by Dean Staudt to all members at one meeting. The group was also fortunate in hear- ing Mr. DeShane, assistant principal of York High, speak at another meeting. The FTA is the only organization that gives college students the opportunity for active par- ticipation in both state and national education associations with which they will be associated during their professional careers. The members have access to research material and a complete movie library. Each month they receive the NEA journal and Illinois state journals which are valuable aids to teachers. FIRESIDES STEERING COMMITTEE: Seated: Miss Chrisman, advisor. Standing: Edith Mae George; Robert Koelling; Mr. Davis, advisor. 108 WOMEN ' S UNION The Women ' s Union, which consists of all women who are attending Elmhurst College, is one of the largest organizations on the campus. Many activities help to fulfill the Women ' s Union purposes. In the fall the Big Sisters took their Little Sisters to a weiner roast in Wilder Park, and to a tea in South Hall Lounge. Women ' s Union also sponsored two girl-ask-boy dances, the Sadie Hawkins and the Co-ed semi- formal. The theme of the Co-ed was Winter Wonderland and the beautiful decorations proved the hard work the girls put in. Though the circus was sponsored by the Women ' s Union, all other organizations co- operated to make it a night of fun and frolic for both the students and the orphans that were " adopted " for the evening. Other events on the calender were the swim- ming party, the bowling party, and various other teas. ANCHOR AND EAGLE CLUB OFFICERS: Mamoru Fujioka; Joseph Fagan; James Smith.

ANCHOR EAGLE Rehabilitation, insurance, G.I. benefits, hous- ing, and other numerous problems arise for former soldiers, sailors, and marines who are now attending college. To aid veterans in their solving of these problems the Anchor and Eagle Club was organized on the campus in 1945. The charter members of the organization numbered only sixteen. It was not long, however, with the return of many other ex-servicemen, before the club included several hundred paid members. This year, under the direction of their advisor, Mr. Dee, and the club officers, all pre-theo- logical students on campus were given the op- portunity to fill out information cards to be sent to their local draft boards. Mutually bound together by their war experiences, the members have enjoyed several informal get-togethers this year. On February 19 they sponsored a dance for the entire student body after the Blue Jay game with Carthage. 109 ( 111.! KI I l)l.kV Front: Bill Behr, Fdith Mar George, Kenneth O. Mesle.

" E " CLUB OFFICERS: Warren Meyer, secretary- treasurer; William Bauer, publicity; Sherm Cunning- ham, president; John Thomas, vice president. CHEERLEADERS The blue-and-white clad cheerleaders are the chief promoters of the " Elmhurst Spirit ' ' . Al- ways supporting the spirit of the teams, the cheerleaders led the spectators in familiar college yells, letting the fellows know that the students were right behind them. Pep rallies held prior to the games brought enthusiasm to the students and acquainted them with the new cheers, so that good results were produced at the games. Frequently these rallies were climaxed with snake dances around the campus. Anyone can try out for cheerleading; the regulars are usually picked by the previous year ' s leaders. Cheerleading letters are earned after one year ' s performance. Aching muscles from practicing, sore throats, and cheering crowds at exciting games are memories that will be cherished by this year ' s cheerleaders. SpoiliqhL " E " CLUB The " E " Club is one of the most exclusive organizations on the campus. Only men who have earned varsity awards are eligible for membership. This year, eighteen members and Coach Thompson received a formal welcome on December 6, when a campus-wide " E " day was proclaimed. Old members wore their mono- gram sweaters and the new members wore the sweat suits issued to them throughout the day to classes. The formal welcome was held in the gym in the evening — to the enjoyment of all. Highlights of the year were work on the award jackets for lettermen, work on souvenir pro- grams, the Women ' s Union Circus stunt, an informal dance on February 19, and, as usual, the E.I.I.

The Blue Jays of 1948 had veterans returning to most of the eleven positions, but lacked experienced reserves. The line had veterans Doug Cunningham, Bob Fellows, and Bob St. Clair at end, Paul Dempsey and Norm Jones at tackle, guards led by " Chuck " Spalten. Walter Rock, Sherm Cunningham, Phil Desenis, and Bob Tardella, and center Jack Mangnall. The backs consisted of Bob Willhouse, " Howie " Workman, Lee Kolwitz, John Thomas, Matt Kafka, and War- ren " Queenie " Meyer. The new men to come out and battle for positions on the squad were ends Bob Wolf and Derald Schultz, tackles Bob " Red " Schneider, Fred " Fritz " Nierhoff, and Alan Joens, guards Bob Cunningham and Roger Johnson, and centers Lawrence Tilly and Stan Liebert. The new backfield candidates were Wayne Duffin, Jim Catlin, J ' Ada Magee, Bob Fellows, captain of the 1 948 Blue Jay football squad. FOOTBALL TEAM: Front: P. Desenis, W. Fieber, D. Kasmar, Capt. R.

After three weeks of practice the Jays jour- neyed to Augustana on September 25 to absorb a 44-7 beating. The Jays, using a single wing offensive formation, averted a shutout by scoring late in the third quarter on a pass, Kafka to Wolf. Thomas kicked the extra point. On October 2 the first home game resulted in a 19-12 victory over Concordia. Heads up play resulted in Walter Rock recovering a Concordia fumble in their end zone for the first touchdown. Jim Catlin kicked the extra point. Warren Fieber scored the second Jay T. D. on a plunge thru center. " Rock " Magee intercepted a Con- cordia pass and returned it 55 yards for the winning touchdown. A rough and tough Illinois Wesleyan team handed the Jays a 26-0 loss on October 9 at Bloomington. The game was marred by the loss of Jack Mangnall for the season and " Queenie " Meyer ' s losing two teeth. Wheaton College visited Elmhurst October 16 and the Blue and White absorbed a 42-14 defeat. Elmhurst scored when Matt Kafka went over from the eight yard line and Stan Liebert returned an intercepted pass for a touchdown. John Thomas added both extra points. On October 23 Elmhurst hosted the Carthage 112 Redmen to our homecoming and after a scoreless first half succumbed to the Redmen ' s second half drive, 18-0. Paul Dempsey was lost for the season when he was injured late in the game. October 30 the Jays gave Aurora College 21 points in the first six minutes of play, and then proceeded to play one of their best games, but still lost, 21-7. The Blue and White scored on a 45 yard pass from Meyer to Catlin. Meyer passed to Fellows for the extra point. November 6 was the Jay ' s opportunity for conference victory number one. North Central had yet to gain their first victory of the season. The Blue Jays went to Naperville really " ready " , but an injury to Lee Kolwitz in the first five minutes handicapped the team on defense as the final score indicates. A 12-6 score at the half was soon turned into a 34-6 rout. Elmhurst scored on a pass from Meyer to Wolf. Another season was ended on November 13 as Elmhurst absorbed a 47-0 beating from the Blue Boys of Illinois College, at Jacksonville. Playing without the services of their many in- capacitated players, the Jays were unable to cope with the hard hitting and varied attack of the Blue Boys. The only threat of the Jays, set up by a 40 yard pass, Meyer to Wolf, ended on the one yard line, as time ran out in the first half. Although hampered by injuries throughout the season, the Jays suffered from a very weak pass defense which accounted for, or set up, many scores against them. The line at times was brilliant, but at other times did not show the consistency necessary for a winning team. The leading scorer and pass receiver was Bob Wolf. The leading passer and ground gainer was " Queenie " Meyer. Lee Kolwitz was the leading punter, a device much resorted to this year. Following the season Meyer was elected to captain the 1949 Blue Jays. FOOTBALL Desenis tosses a block, as Kafka carries the ball for Elmhurst.

(HtiDfL The Blue Jays under Coach Bob Thompson ' s tutorship opened their 1948-49 basketball season as the guests of Loyola University of Chicago on December 1. Obviously playing out of their class, they nevertheless put up a good fight but lost 95 to 45. The Blue and White next lost to Concordia 56-52 on the River Forester ' s floor. The Jays then played host to Lake Forest and racked up their first victory, 75-63. Then in quck succession they lost to North Central by the swamping score of 68-38; then the Jay squad came back and took Aurora 56-48. The Elmhurst boys won their first College Conference of Illinois game over Augustana, 65-59, on the local hardwood. Then two more defeats at the hands of Wheaton 80 to 46, and by James Millikin University, 74-61. The loss to Millikin lowered the Jays Conference average to .500. A second victory over Lake Forest in a con- ference game buoyed their Little 9 average back to .667. BASKETBALL TEAM: Front row: Manager L. Eitenmiller, K. Metzger, VV. Bizer, D. Larson, Captain A.

Wolf. 114 At this point of the season, the fickle lady of sporting luck turned her cold shoulder to the local bucketeers and they lost the next six games, four of which were conference games. The losses were to Aurora, 50-49; Shurtleff, 69-66; North Central, 59-34; Augustana, 59-54; Carthage, 50- 39; and Wheaton, 71-63. In their last two home games, the Blue White won a conference game over Carthage, 56-48, and took a non-conference tilt from Concordia in a 61-60 thriller. Finishing up their 19 game schedule with a trip south, the Jays k st to Illinois College, 85-53; and to Illinois Wesleyan, 71-49. Summing up the Blue Jays ' season record, it comes to this total. Out of 19 games played, six were won, thirteen were lost. Three of the wins were conference games and seven of the defeats counted against their conference rating. The Jays ' opponents scored 1161 points against them, while the Elmhurst five scored a season ' s total of 1020 points. After the Jays ' conference game with Lake Forest, Captain Arnie Bizer was the leading Hafner goes up in the air to win the jump in game with Augustana.

He had amassed a total of 72 points for three con- ference games for an average of 24.3 points per game. Unfortunately he soon lost this coveted posi- tion when the team hit the mid-season slump. The men who constituted the hard fighting team were Captain Arnie Bizer, Bob Manley, Wally Bizer, Joe Meyers, and Don Seiler at for- ward positions; " Wee Willie " Wuchner, Don " Junior " Hafner, and Ray Dankel at center, and Bob " Slats " Wolatz, " Duke " Larson, and Ronnie Wilson at the guard spot. Of the six games played in the local gym, only one was lost, while the three games played in the York High Gym with the Jays as ho sts were complete defeats. The York High jinx kept on in full strength. The boys didn ' t come up to last year ' s record of 1 1 wins and only 8 losses, but they fought hard all the way and didn ' t give up when the pressure was on. They have received compli- ments from various refs and managers of hotels where they stayed, commenting on their clean and fine sportmanship and gentlemanly man- ners. This doesn ' t mean to say that the Jays wear frills on their suits. When a game is over the opponents know they have been in a tough basketball game. With a fine coach like Bob Thompson, the entire school body is already looking forward to next year ' s season. L16 1948 BASEBALL TEAM: Front row: H.Jones, D. Engelsdorfer, H. Potts, Captain J.

Langhorst. f Coach " Pete " Langhorst ' s diamond nine put in an exciting but unsuccessful season last year. With only one win out of twelve games played, the Jays gathered an average of .083. The cold record, however, doesn ' t begin to show how close some of the games were, or how hard the men played. The season opened with an engagement with the University of Chicago and a loss to the tune of 10 to 6. Two more losses followed, to Wheaton 12 to 4, and to Lake Forest 9 to 1. Then Con- cordia kept the Jays from utter despair when the Blue and White trounced the River Forest boys 10 to 2. The remaining eight games were all losses. A double header at Jack sonville against Illinois College was a double blow, 4 to 3 and 9 to 1. The other losses were: Lake Forest 10 to 3; North Central 10 to 9; Chicago 16 to 2; Con- cordia 7 to 2; Wheaton 11 to 5; and North Central 7 to 0. Jim " Shoetrees " Schneider captained the team and was the main sparkplug. With the return of most of last year ' s players, hopes for the 1949 season were good. " Pete " looks on as Jim Schneider and Arny Bizer have a brief practice session. 117 JhitL- The Blue Jay Cindermen ended the 1948 sea- son with a five to one tally — five lost, one won. With winter winds still blowing, the Blue and White journeyed to North Central for the first meet of the season on February 21. Elmhurst placed third in a four-school field by scoring 33 points. This was the only indoor meet of the year and it was held in North Central ' s spacious field house. On April 3 the Jays played host to Morton Junior College and were defeated 74 1 3 to 51 2 3. The following weekend the Jay Cinder- men were defeated 78 1 2 to 47 1 2 by the visitors from Valparaiso University. Their next defeat was at the hands of DePaul University, 70 to 56 on April 17.

May 22 a portion of the team traveled to the famous Beloit Relays where they took 4 points. May 24 the Jays closed the season with a close meet, losing to Concordia, 62-69. The high scorer for the season was Bob Will- house, who racked up 71 points for Elmhurst. Max Pepmeier was second with 46, and " Moe " Tsumori placed third with 38 points. " Moe " served as captain of the team and would have undoubtedly made an even better record had he not missed the last four meets because of an injury.

DeKalb Teachers followed closely with 37.1 points and Bradley University took third with 31 points. No records were broken in the meet, par- tially because of the high marks set during the previous year. " Duke " Larson was the only Elmhurst man to get his name in the scoring column by being one of the ten who tied for third place in the high jump and thus getting .6 points for the Blue and White. Miss Marcella Chant of Elmhurst reigned as queen over the 1948 E.I.I, assisted by four at- tendants, Gladys Kunzer, Merrilyn Hartman, Beverly Hamowitz, and Elaine Bloxom. After each event the queen awarded the first place trophy to the winner and the four attendants presented the remaining four place awards. Twenty-seven schools participated in the meet and 320 athletes competed for scoring honors. E.I.I, is an annual event of which the Elm- hurst athletic department can take just pride. May 7th was the date selected for the 1949 event. The second annual College Conference of Illinois track and field, golf, and tennis cham- pionships were held at Elmhurst College on May 14 and 15, 1948. The queen, Joanne Hillebrand, and her court, Barbara Schaefer, Marian Gabler, Norma Sabbert, and Janice Comstock, were picked by representatives of the visiting schools from pic- tures submitted to them by the " E " Club. The condition of the track was " damp but solid, " the runways, " muddy, " the circles, " slippery, " and the weather, " cloudy. " The winning school was Wheaton College. New records were set in the javelin, high jump, one mile run, the 100, 220, and 440, the 120 high and 220 low hurdles, and the one mile relay. The meet was highlighted by an exhibition half mile run by Gil Dodds. Lowe won a second in the javelin; Larson tied for third in the high jump; and Pepmeier took fifth in the mile for Elmhurst. The golf championship was played under adverse conditions, rain and wind, but North Central managed to keep close enough to par over the rough Timber Trails course to win. Elmhurst finished fourth. The tennis championship, played at East End Park in Elmhurst, was won by Augustana. Elmhurst failed to qualify any men for the finals. The famous " flying parson " , Gil Dodds, at the Little Nine Track Meet held last year at Elmhurst. { • Miss Joanne Hillebrand, selected to rule as queen by representatives of the conference members, presents the first place award to a happy miler. 121 This year ' s golf team was fortunate in having both the number one man, Harry Lavin, and the number two man, Wally Bizer, back from last year ' s team. In addition to these two were the Williams twins, who alternated at number four spot last year. Among the new men were Cal Fischer and Phil Desenis, who threatened to push some of the veterans off the greens. The 1948 record was three wins against four losses and a second in a triangular meet with North Central and Illinois Tech. In the Conference meet last year, after lead- ing up to the finals, the boys took a third place, which was exceptionally good considering the fact that it was a major sport at Elmhurst for the first time. In fact, it was the highest any of our major sports finished last year. Coach C. C. Arends this year met with a problem that any tennis coach dreads to face when he lost his number one singles player to Northwestern. Bud Albertson was one of the top players in the Little Nine Conference. Filling the spot this year was the job given to Dick Kucera, returning number two man. Other returning lettermen included Jim LeGros and Clint Hagemann. Last season was an improvement over the previous ye ar, and the ' 49ers hoped to better last year ' s record. This depended a great deal upon the development of one or two prospects to give the team the balance necessary to tip the scales in our direction for a successful season. Concordia and Aurora fell twice to our net- men last season, and Illinois Normal barely squeezed past Elmhurst by a score of 4-3. 1949 GOLF TEAM: VV. Bizer, P. Desenis, C. Fischer Not pictured: H.

After a very hard- fought season between eight teams, the Rockets came out of the smoky haze as the victors, just a game ahead of the Jets. To make things even more exciting, there was a four-way tie between the Bullets, Vandals, Terrors, and Midgets, with the Hoopsters and Delinquents very definitely on the bottom. The second half of the season started with inter-class play. The Sophomores emerged victorious, having beaten the Seniors in their first game and the Juniors in the final game. A defeat by the Seniors put the Frosh in the cellar. Augmenting the above play was a group of teams from the various dorms. Playing purely for the kicks were the Kulture Korner Kids and Little Budapest from Irion, the Papal Bulls from the Lodge, and the Annex and Vet Housing teams. Plenty of excitement is always evident on nights when intramurals are held at the gym. Everybody tense as the ball goes up in the air during a fast intramural game. A mad scramble to see who will finally get possession of a loose ball. 123 Mildred Jensen attempts to gain points in a shuffle- board game. Archery proves to be one of the most popular women ' s athletic events. A lot of excitement as the ball heads for the basket in a girls ' basketball game. This year the women ' s intramural sports were held on Thursday evening from 7 to 8 o ' clock. Many fast and furious games took place. Tournaments in volleyball and basketball were held in the fall and winter. In the spring, softball archery, and badminton provided the competi- tion. Plenty of cheering and yelling goes on at all of the games, for the girls take their sports seriously. Team-work is all-important and the winners are always mighty proud of the fact. Even the referees come in for their share of arguments, but as usual, they have to stick by their decisions. A large number of girls came out for inter- mural play this year, as usual. The class teams were chosen by " Teach ' ' ' Johnson, including those girls who possessed special ability in the particular sport in season. Points are gained by- playing in intermural sports, points which can be stacked up for that much wanted " E " 124 Basketball was almost as popular with the women as with the men this year.

Physical education was offered again this year as a scholastic minor. Some girls have taken advantage of this offer and are profiting greatly from it. They are receiving still more experience by assisting " Teach " in regular gym class work. Some of them have actually taken over teaching the classes. This year ' s volleyball championship went to the Junior class team, which defeated the Seniors 20 to 1 5 in a very fast game. The Junior team was characterized by good team-work and fast and precise set-ups. Members included Audrey Wagner, Colleen Wegener, Vy Meyer, Marilee Hoelscher, Gabriel Kohler, Dorothy Cluever, Martha Nisi, Sue Esthus, Mary Ann Prell, Carol Rasche, and Joann Wolff. The Senior team captured second place; Freshman took third, and Sophomores found themselves in fourth. The Freshman class has great possi- bilities as far as volleyball is concerned. Given more time to develop skills and to add to experience in playing, the team may become very proficient. The basketball season was also an exciting one. Many girls again turned out for this sport, for it is a favorite of many of them. They work out their own plays, which sometimes were pretty tricky. On March 26 sixteen girls jour- neyed down to Illinois State Normal for a basketball Play Day. Special recognition should, of course, be given to Maude " Teach " Johnson, the head of the women ' s physical education department. " Teach ' s " own ability and good sportsmanship on the gym floor are a wonderful example of each and every girl. In the nine years which she has been here at Elmhurst College, " Teach " has done much to further the developments of our physical education department. 125 Clockwise from upper left: Two prexies hold a friendly discussion . . .

As a graduate, you may continue to contribute to the growth of your Alma Mater by supporting the efforts of your National Alumni Assiciation. The National Association seeks to bring news of the college to alumni through the ' Voice of Old Main and through direct mailing of notices concerning campus activities. It asks that each member pay a small sum in dues each year in order to help the college defray the cost of these operations. You can help by responding to these appeals, and by keeping the alumni office in- formed of changes in your professional status and by supplying news about yourself and your family at frequent intervals. Above all, report any changes of address to the alumni office so that Elmhurst does not lose touch with you. If you live in an area large enough to support a local alumni chapter, join it if there is one, or organize one if none exists. By doing these things, you can help build a strong alumni association, which in turn can assist your Alma Mater in continuing its steady progress toward the top rank of the nation s colleges.
