Dinkmeyer Dear Friends: As you page through this book you will get a fair picttu ' e of Elmluu ' st College in two dimensions. We invite you to visit with us in order to get a three dimensional pictvu ' e. We belie " e that it will jilease you. We are trying constantly to impi-ove it. But there is more to this college than is evident to the eye. There is a fourth dimensional quality which is the most exciting and gratifying of all. If you are not acquainted with it, I ask you to take my word for it. Here is singleness of pui ' pose, honesty in scholarship, sturdiness of character, depth of consecration, and loftiness of ideals. When you meet some of the people pictured here, I am sure you will make this fascinating discovery. Sincerely yours. 12 BOARD UF ]J»lUECTOHS: SEATED: Mrs. Clara Ehlers Mr. Anton C. Negri, Treasurer; Dr. Erwin Koch, Chair- man; Mr. George P. Wirth, Vice-Chairman; Dr. Edwin J. A. Koch, Secretary; Mrs. Helen Schultz. STANDING: Mr. F. W. Rasche, Rev. Mr. William F. Naefe, Rev.

Board of Directors A S the new dormitory is transferred from a dream into a reality it must be remembered that the Board of Directors was the guiding force behind the venture. Although the new dormitory has been one of the main projects of the board during 19-49-50, it has many other widely diversified functions. It is through the college board of directors that the Evangelical and Reformed Church exercises supervision and control over Elmhurst College. The Board of Directors determines the policies of the college, and is responsible for much of the planning and management of college affairs. The boai ' d is likewise responsible for filling vacancies either on the faculty or administra- tive staffs; for securing new personnel and class- room equipment; and for acquiring housingfac- ilities not only for students, but for faculty mem- bers as well. As Elmhurst grows, so increases the duties of the Board of Directors. Members of the Board of Directors are elected by the General Synod, although some are chosen by the board itself. The board con- sists of membei ' s of the Evangelical and Re- formed Church who have special interests and abilities in the field of education. The entire board meets several times each year although much of its business is transacted through an executive committee which holds frequent meetings at the college. The officers of the organization are Rev. Erwin R. Koch, D.D., chairman; Mr. George P. Wirth, junior vice-chairman; Rev. Edwin J. A. Koch, Ph.D., secretary; and Mr. Anton C. Negri, treasurer. Besides this committee, the Board of Directors is divided into several other committees such as the Executive, Faculty, Finance, Buildings and Grounds, Curriculum, and the Planning Committee. 13 Dean of students is the official title of Miss Genevieve Staudt; her position re- quires her to advise andhelpthestudents in their various scholastic and social problems. No matter how great or small the problem may be, Dean Staudt always has time to help everyone. Dean Staudt also prepares students in the field of teaching. Her work in the field of education is noteworthy and her aid to the fledgling and future teachers is in ' aluable in their introduction to their life ' s work. Genevieve Staudt Our Deans Alfred Friedli Behind the door marked Dean of the College, we find Alfred Friedli, who spends most of his time facilitating the curriculum ]irocedures. To set up a col- lege program and to see that things are running smoothly takes many hours, but with the store of experience and ability which Dean Friedli possesses, he has done an excellent job at Elmhurst these past few years. With all these responsibilities, he still has time to teach classes in psychology, sociology, and education. Dean Friedli will always be more than willing to help each student with any problem. His aim is to maintain an intimate relationship with the Student Body. 14 FACULTY C. C.

Repp Director of Polyhymnia Instructor in Voice Business manager Ted Krohne solves many a problem daily. Xn considering those whose efforts go to make Elmhurst a smooth-running organization, we must not forget the " behind the scenes " workers. Let ' s take a walk around campus aad meet some of the people who perform the many necessary tasks of the comiilicated l)usiness organization of the college. Let ' s start in Kranz Hall where Mr. Krohne, the business manager, has his office. Our knock on the door marked " Business Manager " is answered by a cheery " come in " and as we enter we are greeted by Miss Jayne Beckman ' s welcoming smile. For the past se eral years Miss Beckman has ably assisted Mr. Ivrohne in his dual position of Business Manager and Public Relations Director. In her hands rest the responsibility of performing the many clerical duties associated with the office. Miss Beckman tells us that Mr. Krolme can see us now, so we enter the bright office which so acciu ' ately represents the personality of the man who works there. Mr. Krohne ' s familiar grin and his able assistance in helping to solve 20 Indispensable student financial problems have made him known and respected by all of us. His duties are many and varied. In his capacity as Business Manager, Mr. Krohne supervises the purchase and use of all equipment, the securing of food for the Commons, and other diversified tasks such as arranging for delayed payment of student-accounts and supervision of the maintenance crew. Next on our list of people to see is Miss Diane Low, the secretary of the School of Music. Miss Low ' s office in Irion Hall is one of the first places on campus which our po- tential musicians must visit. It is Diane ' s job to keep the numerous records of the School of Music, schedule lessons and perform the secretarial duties of the office. A short walk ' cross campus brings us to Old Main which houses the Business Office and Gen- eral Office. Weall visit theBusiness Office on the second floor at least twice a year, for it is to this office that we pay our accounts. Mr. Howard Brown, the auditor, has as his job the balancing of the college books while Mrs. Fiebrandt and Mrs. Koss make the financial arrangements with the students and distribute student i)ay. Best known of all the offices on campus is the General Office on the first floor of Old Main. The able ladies of the st aff help us solve a diversity of problems whether it be making appointments to see the Deans or finding a lost book. Here are kept student files and all reports are compiled here. Mrs. Alma Schaeffer is secretary to President Dinkmeyer, Mrs. Mary Bue and Mrs. Dresser are the secretaries to the Deans. Mrs. Bette Roark is in charge of the switchboard and Joyce Moore is their student assistant.

From hearing the girls gripe about extra late nights to listening to the woes of girlhood, " Mom " lends a sympathetic ear. Being the mother of three boys and one girl, " Mom " is well aware of the problems which arise in youth, and she attempts to help solve them. Her grandson, Bobbie, a frequent visitor to South Hall, should be well versed on the subject of girls when he reaches the ripe old age of thirteen! Got a cold, headache, flu, upset stomach, chicken pox, mumps, measles? The registered student niu ' ses will surely find something in their cupboard which will cure the ailment. If not, they will put you in the infirmary where the proper medical treatment will be given until you are completely well and happy once again. Many thanks go to Aileen Etherton, who with her untiring efforts has made the Student Union store a more efficient organization. With an able crew of student workers, the S.U. has been able to serve a variety of sandwiches, hamburgers, coffee, hot chocolate, malts, milk shakes, and sundaes not only during the day but also during the evening hours. To make the S.U. a more enjoyable place for us, the workers go all out once a month for " S.U. Fun Night " when prices are slashed, chairs and tables are pushed aside for dancing to the tune of records, and free hamburgers are given away! Hats off to Aileen and her crew for making S.U. such an enjoyable spot for relaxing along with a little snack ! " Mom " Herrmann, guardian, friend to the South Hall girls. Trying to keep the campus looking its Sunday best is the big job of Emil VonderOhe, head of the maintenance crew. Not only is it important to keep the inside of the buildings clean and neat, but the campus grounds must also be kept attractive looking. Helping Emil is Byrl Mooney who has the huge task of trying to keep Irion Hall clean. His wife, Betty, has a similar job in South Hall. Not only does Pete Meyer take care of the gym, but he assumes the responsibility of seeing that each clean-up committee does a good job on Sunday morn- ings. The technical problems are handled by Paul Hein and Roy Wiemerslage, engineers. In the basement of Commons is found the workshop of Walter Pfaff, the college car- penter. Inga Albright, chief cook and dietician of the Commons has one of the biggest jobs on campus — that of satisfying the appetites of approximately two hundred and fifty hungry students three times each day. Throughout the school year, from early morning until late evening you can see Martha Ladiges, Amelia Wagner, Nellie Caldwell, and Grace Marwood busy at work preparing daily meals. 23 C ' arcil liamsey and Johnny Ti ' uka seem to enjoy all the work involved in being Associate liditor and Editor of the Elms. Campus A NOTHER year completed and a host of memories never to be forgotten. Do yon remember Snowflake Silliouette, the games, the Elm trees clad in their crimson and gold, the Circus and the Gold Rush. To record all of those wonderful moments and many more required the clicks of a camera, the pounding of a typewriter, proof-reading, rubber cement and a stack of stories. The members of the Elms Staff tried to in- clude all of those unforgettable moments into one album of memories for you in the countless hoiu ' s they not only worked but also worried. The Elms is your key to this past year ' s memories and as each page is turned, pictures and stories will help recall friendships, games, dances, and the hours you worked to make them successful.

The Elm Bark office is a popular hangout for many of the campus writers and if you are searching for any of them — stop there because every one eventually turns up at the Bark office. To add to the paper ' s appeal more cuts are being used and a larger edition being published. Theatre news, profiles of the profs, sports events are only a few topics covered in the new columns added as regular features to this year ' s Elm Bark, which is striving to be bigger and better. 1949 saw Robert Witzeman as editor of the Elm Bark; Bill Klusack assumed the reins in 1950. In February of the current year Joyce Moore replaced Margit Anderson as Business Manager. Bill Khisack gets tips from i-etiriuK cditoi-, Holi Witze- man.

Mr. Ladd made his choice from the photographs of six finalists who had been elected as a result of two all-campus votes. All Elmhurst coeds were candidates in the first election. From these, the top twelve contenders were entered in the final campus vote. As a result of this election, the six final contestants were chosen. The six were Miss Teschner, Miss Suzanne Esthus, Miss Charlotte Krivulka, Miss Tuck Ewald, Miss Joan Johanning, and Miss Arlene Trnka. Photographs of these girls, along with some vital statistics, were sent to Mr. Ladd, who had very kindly consented to choose our queen. To be Elms queen is a singular honor, but to be selected for that title by a celebrated actor who is a well-qualified judge of beauty is a great tribute. We congratulate our queen. Our congratulations also to the five members of her court, all of whom give an added touch of beauty to our college life. 27 Elms Court MISS ARLENE TRXKA MISS SUE ESTHUS MISS JOAN JOHANNING MISS CHARLOTTE KRIVULKA 1VJ.ISS Jano Tescliei- is tiie 1950 Elms queen. A native of Elmhurst, Jane is completing her sopho- more year in college. As a freshman, she was given the title of 1949 E.I.I, queen. Jane ' s future holds a career as an elementary school teacher and, of course, a longer career as a housewife. One of the fi e memljers of the Elms court, Miss Suzanne Esthus is a senior majoring in chemistry. Sue was selected as Elms queen in 1948. Her home is in Chicago. Another court lady is Miss Tuck Ewald who is in her third year at Elmhurst where her main academic interest is sociology. She hails from Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Miss Charlotte Kri ulka, a member of the Class of ' 50, is a native of Pennsylvania, but now claims Califcjrnia as her home. She is an aspiring speech correctionist. Miss Joan Johanning, a sophomore, comes to Elmhurst from St. Louis, Missouri. Her major is sociology. Another sophomore, Miss Arlene Trnka, is a future teacher. Her home is in Chicago. 28 Mtss Jane Teschner SCIENCE CLUB OFFICERS: SEATED: Gab- I ' iellc Koehler, Secretary. STANDING: Joel Mossberg, President; B.

Science Club D RAA ING fiuni the rich baekgrovmd of the Elmhiirst College science department, the Science Club ' s schedule included many v aried and interesting activities. At the beginning of the first semester, movies entitled Microscopy and Sounds of the Deep were ])resented through the courtesy of the Moody Bible Institute, and a representa- tive of the General Biological Company lectured on the correlation of science and religion. Further progi ' ams devoted to speeches, debates, antl discussion grouj s, along with several field trips, filled out the club ' s calendar. Climaxing an eventful year, the Science Club, together with the Science department, held its annual Open House on Honors Day, at which time laboratory exhibits dealing with physics, chemistry and biology were on display for the benefit of the general ptiblic. The piu ' pose of the Science Club is to create interest in the study of natural sciences. Membership is open to all students interested in scientific topics. F.T.A.

T HE Futtue Teachers of America organiza- tion of Elmluu ' st College is now in its third year. One of its chief aims is to give college students who are interested in the teaching profession an opportunity to become better acquainted with the various facets of the teaching field. Guest si)eakers and a study made of The N.E.A. Journal and the Illinois State Teachers Journal helj) to accomplish that goal. Among their activities of this year were a mai-shmellow roast, a film presentation, You and The N.E.A., and also at one of their montiily meetings, Mr. Clark, representing the YiWsi Park School system, spoke to the mem- bers. Russ Jolly presides at the regular monthly meetings of F.T.A. which is the only organiza- tion on campus which gives students a chance to participate in both state and national education associations which tliey will later be associated with in their jirofessional careers. 30 Philosophy Club X J. HROUGH its monthly meetings, the Philosophy Club endeavored to explore the relationship of philosophy to science and other fields of knowledge. Under the leadership of Dr. Halfter, the club presented programs con- sisting of speakers followed by enlightening group discussions. Dr. Sprunger discussed the correlation of philosophy and psychology, and Dr. Koch, pastor of the Elmhurst Evangelical and Re- formed Church, lectured on the interde- pendence of religion and philosophy. Other major topics of the year included the relation- ships of philosophy and art, and philosophy and music. Because of their great interest in the human- ities, the members investigated the possi- bilities of establishing a separate Humanities Club. The Owl of Minerva, annual publication of the Philosophy Club, presented articles dealing with philosophical topics contributed by stu- dents, and faculty members. Firesides 3 IRESIDES are fast becoming an institution at the college, having been introduced in 1944. The purpose of Firesides is to discuss problems facing both students and faculty and difficul- ties of the college as a whole. Fii ' esides are held twice each semester at the homes of the faculty members. Usually there are about four discussion groups, thereby giving four separate approaches and solutions to the problems at hand. Each group is assigned a discussion leader, a host, and a hostess. The discussion leader starts on the topic for the evening and sees to it that the conversation does not run away too far hile the host and hostess are responsible for the " snack " . The firesides build leadership and social grace among students, help the faculty to realize problems of the student, and give both an opportunity to " raise their gripes " and have them aired.

The association as a whole sponsors every month a special open meeting which is devotional and informative in nature. In addi- tion, it presents a semi-annual retreat which emphasizes personal spiritual experience and commitment. This year one of the retreats was held at the DesPlaines Methodist Camp Grounds and it had for its theme; " Christ and My Vocation " . The five provisional committees and two standing committees which comjirise the organization include the program chairman, the publicity chairman, tiie Social Justice committee, the Radio committee, and the Religious Life committee in the former cate- gory; with the Christians-in-Discussion and the Pre-Theological-Christian Education group in the latter category.

The Christians-in-Discussion sponsor meet- ings of an informal nature for the purpose of discussing various religious topics such as " What Can Christ Mean to Me? " , " The Nature of Salvation " , " The Church and Pacifism " , and " Is Our Campus Really Christian? " The Pre-Theological-Christian Ed. com- mittee examines problems relating to the ministry and Christian service through monthly general meetings. It is currently attempting to make students aware of forces in our modern society which would undermine the Christian church as a social institution. It also seeks to foster an awareness among its members of the political, economical, moral, and social issues of the day, and of the significance of those issues to them as Christians.

Chapel Choir Men ' s Glee Club C)nE of the iniixirtaiit singing organizations of the college is the Chapel Choir, composed of mixed voices and under the direction of Pro- fessor Brown. Among the activities of the Choir is participation in Chapel services, in which some of the finest sacred music is pre- sented. This, ho e ' er, constitutes only a part of their work, for they have various concerts in neighboring churches and a tour taken in the spring of the year. The musical numbers of the society are of a v-aried nature, although religious anthems predominate. The music presented by the Clioir requires a great deal of hard work, but somehow when one enjoys doing something, as all the members of the Choir enjoy singing, it no longer takes on the aspect of work, but rather, pleasure, especi- ally since they all work for a goal nothing short of perfection. The Elmhurst College Glee Club is the oldest organization on campus, I eing founded in 1894. New members are added everj year through selection by the director and officers and the approval of the group. This year " the Club " has a new director in the person of Myron Carlisle, " Myke " to the lK)ys. He is known throughout music circles in Chicago and St. Louis. Every year the Glee Club goes on sevei ' al tours with the expenses being covered by the group ' s treasury. In November, the " Club " toured Iowa, eastern Nebraska, Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri, with the tour culminat- ing in Pana, Illinois. Another tour was made over the Easter vacation. The Glee Club does not only give the men fellowship and improve then- musical ability but also gives them an opportunity to see more of the country and gi ' es them the basis of good showmanshij). 34 MEN ' S GLEE CLUB QUARTET: Richard Pearce, First Tenor; Delvin Engelsdorfer, Second Tenor; Gene Kuehl, Baritone; Kenneth Mesle, Bass and club president.

School of Music -LL,LMHURST College is indeed fortunate in having such a fine School of Music that con- tributes so much to the life of the campus. It offers wonderful opportunities for students to participate in musical oi ' ganizations. Under the guidance of the director, Pi ' ofessor Harry John Brown, and with the aid of the fine music instructors, a well-rovmded, beneficial and enjoyable musical program has been ])ro- vided. The singing organizations of the Music Department consist of the Cliaj el Choir, the Polyhymnia and the Men ' s Glee Club. These societies add great inspiration to the Chapel services in which they all participate. Along with this service, they give various concerts in the school Chapel and also in neighboring and distant commvmities. The Polyhymnia, pictured above, is com- posed of women ' s voices and is under the direc- tion of Mrs. Viola Repp. Their work consists of participation in school ])rograms, luunerous outside concerts, a tour taken in the spring of the year, and closes with a l anquet wliich brings the year ' s work to a successful culmina- tion. The Elmhurst College School of Music also has two fine instrumental musical groups. 36 They are the Elmhurst Community Orchestra, comj osed of members of the community and the school, and the Elmhurst College Band, both directed by Professor Bi ' own. The two major appearances of these grouj s, along with the singing organizations are the Christmas program and the Spring Concert. The School of Music in Elmhurst College ser es not only the students and faculty mem- bers but affects the li -es of many people by the various concerts and tours. It brings great enjoyment and pleasiue through the wide selection of numbers, both religious and secular, and through the interjjretations given these numbers. The Music Department, however, l)rings not only enjoyment and i;)leasure but a deejier insight into the real foundation of the college and the attitudes of the students. It was founded with the hope that with the many opportunities offered, the students would have a higher level of aspiration, consisting not only of worldly desires but those intangible aims in which music has so much to offer. Being in one of these musical organizations means not only a great deal of enjoyment, but also many hours of hard work. Howe -er, those hours of work seem very small compared to the pleasure one receives and the pleasure given to others. ORCHESTRA: FIRST ROW: D. Rands, W. Cotsakis, Mrs. J. Gill, E. Koniad.

Speech Clinic OR the i ast three years, Elmhurst College has had a Speech Clinic. The purpose of this clinic has been to provide special service for students and members of the community who have some kind of speech difficulty. It offers diagnosis and correction whenever possible for hearing and speech disorders. The clinic operates in connection with the training program offered at the college in speech correction and provides an opportunity for majors in the field to have suj ervised clinical practice. The speech problems handled in the clinic include a wide range. Simple sul)stitution of one sound for another, stuttering, voice prob- lems, and organic disorders of various types leading to speech difficulties are given therapy . Both children and adults are accepted and individual i)rograms are set up and carried out at the clinic foi- each person examined. An enrollment of thirty to forty persons is expected for the coming year. Women ' s Union HE fact that nearly every woman student at Elmhurst College has at some time taken an acti e part in its program, may account for the success of one of the largest and most active organizations on the campus, the Women ' s Union. Aside from its contribution of bringing together the town and dormitory students in a common enterprise, the oj ' ganization provides a program of activities often including not only the women, but the entii ' e student body — such annual events as the Cu-cus and the Co-ed Dance, which are well on their way to becoming traditions at Elmhurst. The popularity of the Circus and the fun of an e- ' ening under the " big top " can be affirmed l)y the one-hundred little orphans adopted for the evening; the popularity of this year ' s Co-ed Dance, the Sweetheart Cotillion, can also be attested to by more than a hundred men likewise " adopted " for an evening of fun. Vaiious teas and social functions, in addition to the women ' s intramural sports sponsored by the Women ' s Union, round out the calendar of events for the year. 38 Some of the most worthwhile memories which the student body has to look back upon are those given by the Elmhurst College Theatre. The past year has been another exciting one, seasoned with just the right proportions of serious drama and good humor. Remember the Homecoming Revue in October— " Pills of Paradise " ? The delightfully gay and funny revue with its unusual impres- sionistic scenery was a credit to its authors, Professor Arends, Mr. Frank Morgan, and alumnus Wally Sandner who wrote the musical score. With December came " The Young and Fair " by N. Richard Nash. Remember the surprise when the curtains parted to reveal three individual rooms on the stage? The novel representation of a girls ' dormitory was a fitting background for the strongly serious theme, the question of whether ends justify Mr. Arends intently watching one of the rehearsals.

A J 39 means. The work crews deserved much praise for the fine set, and the all-girl cast won our honest admiration for an excellent performance. In March the highly dramatic production, " The Cockpit " , brought home to us many of the problems of displaced persons after the wsiv. Remember how the whole auditorium was used as part of the acting area, and how beautifully the proscenium was remodeled to resemble a German theatre? And we can ' t forget the wonderful way in which the cast put over the difficult accents. Elmhurst College had the right to be especially proud of the Theatre, whose production of " Cockpit " was the first in tlie United States. The spring brought Shakespeare ' s " Comedy of Errors " , with its gay carni al atmosphere — a perfect ending to a very entertaining season. Sprinkled among the many plays were the regular monthly meetings for guppies and members, with discussions on new projects and ideas, climaxed by the usual amount of refresh- ments and fun. New additions to the theatre this year con- tributed much to the success of the seasons ' productions. Remember, for instance, how things started humming when Mr. Harry Campbell took over as technical director to assist Mr. Arends in his tremendous work? Those who worked in the scene shop will remember too, how much easier and quicker the job of painting scenery progressed with the new paint spray. The excellent lighting effects produced by the new control board inspired the theatre members to begin l uilding a portable dimmer to be used on tour. This newequipment, along with the new border strip for use during chapel programs, are only a few of the things which have added to the happy memories of the past season. And so has passed another year of Elmhurst College Theatre history— a yesiv of creative- ness, experimentation, and innovation for members of the theatre; a year of unique and enjoyable entertainment for the entire Elm- hurst Community.

German T HiC Goethe Verein, the Elmhurst College German Club, is one of the most active foreign language organizations on the campus. This club meets monthly and is presented bi- lingually so that everyone may vmderstand and take part. The purj ose of the Goethe Verein is to draw together all students interested in the German language and to acquaint them with German literatiu ' e, music and art. A very interesting program has been carried out this year. The student body was invited to a German-English movie session which the German club sponsored. The organization also went to a German mo de theater in Chicago to enjoy an evening of tlie German cinema. The Goethe Verein is vmder the capable leadership of Anthony Hsu, president : D(m Hanscom, A-ice president ; Barbara ' ahl, secretary-treasurer; and Miss Anna Ziak, faculty advisor. Hungarian Elmhurst CoUege is quite proud of its Hungarian Club. It was organized primarily for students of Hungarian descent but this year membership has been opened to all stu- dents on campus. The regular meeting of the club is held on the second Monday of every month, ' al•ious projects are planned by these vi -acious young people. Among them is a Hungarian play with folk tunes which is presented to different church organizations located in Racine, Wisconsin; Cleveland, Ohio; Chicago and vicinity and many other states. Many of the members will Axell remember the trip to Chicago to attend the Hobby Horse Radio program and later the inter -iew with the noted Hungarian authoress, Kate Seredy, writer of children ' s stories containing Hun- garian folklore. This proved both interesting and educational to all who attended. 42 Shutterbugs Book Store Shutter Bugs, the campus camera club, has completed a very successful year. The recent purchase of lights and improvement of equipment have made the organization very profitable to the school by publicizing other organizations and social functions. There are two types of membership in the club, junior and senior. The former is open to anyone interested. The senior membership, however, requires one semester ' s work in the club and the ability to successfully operate photographic equipment. This year ' s officers of the club are president, Stan Gudmundson; vice-president, Ed Johnson; secretary-treasurer, Betty Hagberg; publicity director. Bill Klusak. The darkroom which was set up last year in the basement of South Hall has been a great asset in striving toward the goal of teaching the students of Elmhurst College the proper techniques of photography. T the start of each new semester, one of the longest of the traditional Elmhurst College lines, leads to the counter of the college book store. Behind and between the numerous stacks of books, one may see the students acting as sellers, assisting others in getting their new new books and school supplies. The store is run on a non-profit basis and completely for the convenience of the students. Clarence Kohring and Myron Low have had charge this past school year, first and second semesters, respectively. Although the store is commonly referred to as the " book store " , everything from paper clips to sweat socks are sold there. The G.I. Bill of Rights allows the veteran students to secure their books and other necessary school supplies free. This is a phase of book store business which developed after the finish of the war.

Executi ( ' duties are i)erformcd l)y the Cabi- net, composed of the officers — president, vice- president of women, -ice-president of men, seci ' etary and treasurer — who carry out the traditional functions, the chairmen of the standing Student Union committees — religious life, social life, athletics, library, and i)ublica- tions— and the business manager. When the newly-organized, thirty-six seat Senate began to function in the fall, Elmhurst student government entered a new phase, that of representation. For the election of Senators, the student body was di " ided into the sixteen groups of which it is composed — men and women, town and dorm, for all foiu ' classes. Members of these groups elected a representa- tive for each twenty persons in the di -ision. It is the duty of these representatives to be i-esponsive to the needs of their groups and to take suggestions from them to the Senate. In addition, otlier committees perform jobs vital to the school. Of these, theelectrical com- mittee is ] erluii)s most important. A special elections committee this year ac- complished a great ser ' ice for the school when they finished the difficult task of formulating a code of rules by which all campus elections are conducted. Working out the budget for the Student Union was only part of the huge job of the finance committee. Innumerable other groups and indi iduals gave valuable ser ' ice, making it possible for the Student Union to complete one of its most progressive years. 44 A. .CTING in an advisory capacity for the students, the facuUy, and the administration, is the Council on Social Life and Relationships, which provides an opportunity for the dis- cussion and fulfillment of the social needs of Elmhurst College. The group, which is composed of four repre- sentatives from each class and four from the faculty, meets once every two weeks to discuss any and all social problems in evidence on the campus. The results of the debating are then relayed as suggestions and recommendations to the group or groups in question. Among the more specific duties of the Council are the planning, preparation, and actual direction of Freshman Week; the scheduling and guidance of all social activities ; and the revision and publication oftheE-Book. A powerful sense of responsibility and de- votion to Elmhurst College for its constant improvement is found prevalent in this im- portant organization. u The Student Union Electrical Committee under Harold Renis, assisted by Dick Blankshain and Don Gabler, seems almost indispensable on campus. They are doing a fine job. nion SOCIAL LIFE COMMITTEE: FRONT ROW: George Wright, Mrs. Story, Norman Jones, President; Priscilla Arvay, Mr. Campbell, Joan Wolff.

I N the early fall some of the most beautiful and most colorful of all campus sights — the red cana lilies — welcome each new freshman girl to her life in the Elmhurst College dormi- tory, South Hall. As soon as the double doors of the " dorm " are entered, the spirit of the building begins to become a part of the " Freshie. " To the left, the lounges greet her with a pleasant feeling of coziness and the sound of girls ' happy voices float down the stairs to welcome her " home. " The recreation room downstairs is often used for exciting games of ping-pong and for class parties. This year Sue Esthus is president of South Hall, and " Mom " Herrmann the counselor. Probably the first building which is seen as the campus is entered is Irion Hall. Here most of the Elmhurst College men are housed. In the basement of the dorm is the " rec room " , where ping-pong and pool are the favorite sports. Mr. Joe Islinger is counselor of Irion Hall this year; Bob McNamara is president; and Al Voile, secretary-treasurer. Other men ' s dormitories include the Gym Annex where the " overflow " of freshmen men reside, the veterans ' shacks, and the Lodge for senior men. The boys in the Annex are super- vised by Mr. Harry Campbell. The elected officers are president, Lorenz Eichenlaub; and secretary-treasurer, Richard Eisenmann. Ralph Baur is head of the Lodge, and Don Hafner is acting as secretary-treasurer. Home life isn ' t just what is done; it is what results from what is done. That all-inclusive feeling of friendliness around the camptis is merely a spirit of cooperation that is nourished in the dormitory home life. 53 Molly ' s pre-proni-priniping is done as Dumo looks You know, living in a dorm is a wonderful way to get a part of that " liberal education " for which you came to college. In South Hall, under " Mom " Herrmann ' s watchful care, 126 daughters get the best possible training. Remember all the fun we had standing in long lines for the showers, ( " Hey Roommate, save me one! " ) ; playing heated games of ping- pong in the newly re-decorated recreation room; working the automatic washing machine, ( " Anybody got a cjuarter for 25 pennies? " ); carefully hiding contraband hot-plates, ( " Hide it, here comes Mom! " ); forgetfully yelling down a hall and being gently (?) reminded of " Quii-i-i-yet Hours! " ; watching impatiently for the gal on desk duty to come up and announce, " He ' s here! " ; and peeking out the window of a darkened room at ten-ten to watch affectionate couples blissfully parting for the night. ( " When did she start going with him? " ). A hundred and twenty-five sisters is an education any way you look at it! South Hall Always a busy phu ' e, the laundi-y i-ooin is put to good use. Roommates, sharinf; their days in South Hall. 54 Irion Hall residents pursue one of their favorite studies " during a welcome moment of relaxation. X 0 a large number of Elmhurst men, Irion Hall is home. Here they may study or use the pool table, ping-pong table or lounge for recreation. All residents realize the necessity of cooperation and therefore have organized a Dorm Council. Under the stern but just rule and unsleeping eyes of Bob McNamara and Mr. Joseph Lslinger, quiet and content- ment reign supreme. One of the many gathering places is the " phoneroom " . Here the fellows calmly read and smoke while waiting their tiu ' ns. Occasion- ally, here, as in other parts of the dorm, friendly " bull sessions " evolve. It is here that the sagacious remarks of the professors are reiterated and thus added to the store-house of each man ' s knowledge. But no matter what the future may bring, nothing can detract from the comradeship that springs from a group of men who have learned the secret of living together in true harmony. Irion Hall " To Each His Own " — the ironing and studying code in Irion. 55 Coffee all around for those men who live in the Lodge. Study, then relaxation in the Veterans ' Housing. Lodge Flanking the south side of the eampus is a niassi ' e white frame house which has been dul)hed The Lodge. Canopied hy tall elms and siuTounded hy a sjiacious lawn, it serves as a home for senior men. Perha))s no other jrrou]) of campus men live in such a fraternal atmospliere — Ralph Baur reigns as the " Pope " over the " Cardinals " as other residents of the Lodge are called. The fellows buy their own news]iapers, pay their own tele])hone frills and do their own cleaning which is done on a cooperative basis. In this home-like atmosphere, the Lodge has produced many lasting friendships between men through their living and working together. The men of the Lodge will remember the card games, the H(Miiec(jming Golden Garter Room- ing House and their traditional Christmas party. Veterans Housing K] IE] IBER how the veteran housing looked when we returned this fall? The three room units were just as we had left them. But then cans of paint sjilattered by our best in- terior decorators tui ' ned the drab shacks into bright homey cottages for the ensuing school year. Many were the nights we spent studying, ]ilaying pinochle, making great plans for the future, and freezing our feet on the concrete floors which weren ' t influenced by our oil furnaces. Occasionally this routine was broken pleasantly by our traditional i)arties. In spring as the weeds and mud landscaped the shacks, we seriously considered planting gi-ass; but oiu ' hopes of having a new dorm filled with boys instead of faith counteracted our aml)ition. I en though we hope for the new dorm, we shall nexev forget the freedom and fun we had in our home, the " shacks " . 56 Sunday lounging in tlie Annex, home of Frosh fellows. Freshmen men work and study, and the talk flows freely. Gym Annex D 0 you live in a converted swimming pool? Perhaps you can ' t answer that question in the affirmative, but a colony of the male popula- tion on campus can reply authoritatively on the hole that was destined to become a swim- ming pool only to be covered and partitioned into sections. These small sections took the form of rooms and they provide housing for almost thirty freshman residents. This kind of setting does not always provide the best atmosphere for quiet study, but, on the con- trary, there is always enough background noise to keep one from becoming lonely or, heaven forbid, homesick. Not only has the lounge of the " pool hall " been the scene of the ever-present bull session but also several parties. One of the most colorful and well remembered was the Christ- mas party because many South Hall freshman girls were included in the guest list. Harry Campbell, a new facidty member this year, has accepted the position of counselor in the Annex. Mr. Campbell, sometimes referred to as " Father " Campbell, maintains law and order according to the rules which the fellows themselves have established. This unusual phase of Elmhurst " dorm " life is in its third year of existence, and to keep conditions running smoothly, the members of the Annex elected Lorenz Eichenlaub as president and Richard Eisenmann as secretary- treasurer. The Annex act for the Women ' s Union Circus will be remembered by the student body and the two little girls whom they serenaded. It is the fun of living and working together which will make the annex a never-to-be- forgotten memory. Of course, the crowded conditions and the noise made it a year of vmique experience and education. 57 Student Union S.U. Lounge To Elmhurst students the college Student Union is famous for that early morning coffee an ' doughnut, the snappy games of rummy, pinochle, and canasta when there is free time, and a variety of programs on the television set in the evening. The S.U., located in the basement of Kranz Hall, serves as a place to eat for many of the town students, at the same time serving as a social center and place of relaxation. The system now in use, whereby the Union is open longer and more often, is really bringing good results as far as sales are concerned. And for much of this improvement, we have Aileen Etherton to thank. She took over the man- agement of the store at the beginning of the school year. Included in the store are also the mail boxes of commuters — lined on either side of the S.U. counter. Through these, messages of " good and evil " reach the students and are discussed perhaps over that morning coffee. Andm-m-m, what good coffee it is ! y .RE you sometimes exhausted by the con- fusion and bustle of campus life? Next time that " done in " feeling descends upon you, retire to Kranz Hall, to the haven provided by your Student Union — the Student Union lounge. Faithful frequenters will eagerly assure you that the noise you find there is of the relaxing sort, and any confusion evident only adds to the pleasant atmosphere. You ' ll find the card tables occupied by pinochle or canasta fiends, surrounded by a circle of kibitzers. The comfortable lounge chairs and sofas invite weary students to " take a breather " . If you feel communicative, there are vigorous discussions to attract you. If you prefer to brood in solitude, there are the colorful drapes, presented last year by Mrs. Dinkmeyer, to give your thoughts a " lift. " For relaxing interludes in hectic days, feel welcome to visit the Student Union lounge. READ CLOCKWISE BEGINNING TOP LEFT: Bill Newman busy studying as usual . . .

CjToing under the assumption that " all work and no jack makes for a dull playboy, " Elm- hurst College has seen to it that its students have a balanced diet of both work and play. It is a rare veekend indeed when there is not some activity going on within the confines of the campus. Take for example October first, 1949. We had only been back to school for two weeks, and yet the junior class had prepared their annual Informal Dance. It was in the form of a street dance on the grass in front of I.H. A week later, the Frosh had their chance. They presented their annual JNIixer, which takes the form of a talent show. The freshmen displayed I ' eal showmanship. We weren ' t disappointed the next week, either. Since Homecoming fell on Halloween, the Halloween party was held on the 22nd of October. This dance was a hag, stag, drag, etc. affair, and contained the usual straw-covered dance floor, brooms, cauldrons and other typical Halloween decorations. After Homecoming, the girls took over for a week and asked their favorite boys to the Sadie Hawkins Day dance.

There was a lapse of two weeks, hut the Senior Class made up for lost time by present- ing the Minstrel Show which they had in- augurated last year. " Showboat " as they called it, was an almost jirofessional show, which kept the audience amused with its cast of " darkies " and the traditional end-men. Two weeks later the Soj homore class pre- sented the Sophomore Semi-formal which they termed the " Snowflake Silhouettes " . The gala affair brouglit twinkles into the eyes of many of the dancers. By tliis time it was nearing Christmas time, so the next thing in line was naturally a Christmas party, which was held in the Student Union. Hiese rooms ere liberally decorated with red crepe paper, and mistletoe which was made use of by the men. 62 After vacation, the jimior class was again called on to present an informal, their second of the year. This time they produced a dance in the gym, api)ropriately called " Canadian Capers. " Only a week latei ' , the Women ' s Union had planned the Co-ed Dance, a semi-formal affair in w liicli the lo -ely co-eds on campus take over the job of being " Man for the Night " . At this point the term ' s first semester was drawing to a close, and students were plagued with exams. As soon as finals were over, those who remained on campus were treated with the traditional " Let-Down Party " . Bill Mielke became " King Let-Down of 1950 " . One week after the ad -ent of the new semester, " Blue Champagne " was presented by the senior class. Beautifully decorated, the dance proved to be a wonderful way to start the new semester. The following week, the Women ' s Union presented the Annual Circus, to which orphans from Bensenville and Ullich were brought, being sponsored by student " parents " . The following weekend was featured with " Punch and Judy Hop " , being, as the name implies, an presentation of the Elmhurst College Theatre group. Lent came to the campus, and all dances were given up for the duration. The only social activities until Easter were a number of open- houses, lhat is, until the junior class presented the Student-Faculty Show the week before vacation. The month of April was occupied with the Frosh Informal, Theatre Production, (The Cockpit was the play), and the E-club Informal. The sophomores started off May with their Informal, which was followed the next day by Honors Day. The following weekend the students wei ' e kept amused with the famous E.I.I, and the Student Union picnic. The biggest event of the year came the following Saturday. It was the Junior Prom which was not to be soon forgotten, and was held at the lovely Medinah Country Club. Weekends Who me? . . .

MISS PAULINE LAVIN MISS MARY LOUISE LEE MISS MARIAN GABLER Xl LMHURST College has boasted of many lovely queens and courts in her days, but in the year 1949 the students really " struck it rich " when they chose Miss Tuck Ewald as their queen to leign o er the 1950 prom. She became queen not only to the students that year, but (|ueen to a certain lucky young man. Many of us will long remember her for her fine dance routines in the minstrel shows. Aiul 1o make a lovely picture even lovelier, the students chose as her attendants Mary Louise Lee, Pauline Lavin, and Marian Gabler. Mary Louise, the fii ' st attendant, is well known on campus for her special knack for disguising the gym on the occasion of dances. A native of Chicago, Mary is a biology major. Pauline is an Elmhurst girl who is studying for the teaching profession. Her smile hel])s to cheer the greyer days on cam])us. Marian is also a future teacher who will charm her students.

I T cannot he said that the l ' hnlmrst College football team liad a good or e en mediocre season. In most games they were out-scored and out-played, hut it can never be said that this team was ever out-fought. It is hard for any team, in any sport, to lose consistently and still play haixl foi- that one ui)set. The Blue Jays were gi-eeted late in August by theii ' new head coach, William Kastrinos. Bill or " Wild Bill " , as he came to be known by the meml)ers of the team, came to Elmhiu ' st from North Dakota State Teachers College where he held the position of assistant football coach. He brought many new and good ideas with him and installed the " T " Formation as the main operating offense. Coach Kastrinos, assisted by Line Coach Pete Langhorst, End Coach Don Rosback, and 68 Official Taper and General Trainer Bob Thompson, called the first pi-actice of the year two weeks before school officially started. His call was answered by forty prospective football l layers led by Captain Warren " Qiieenie " Meyer. With only seven returning lettermen. Captain Meyer, John Tanis, John Thomas, John Melchert, Phil Desenis, Walter Rock, and Larry Tilly, the main pai ' t of the team had to be made up of last year ' s reserves and this year ' s freshmen. It seemed like a very large job to be done in the three weeks before the first game. The team did shape uj) and I)y the time the first game rolled around, the positions were nearly all filled. Derald " Dowie " Schiiltz, John Melchert, Roger Johnson, and Augie Wirkus were all worked in at ends with W ally Rock, Carl Neimes, Allan Joens, Frank Petru, Baker is smothered after passing from -lO-yard line; Augustana player stretches lor hall m season ' s first game. and Norm Jones fighting it out for the tackle spots. At guards were Ralph Baur, Phil Stendel, Roger Baker, Clyde Hippard, and Phil Desenis ; while at center Larry Tilly and George Nie- mann had pretty easy going. In the backfield were Warren Fieber, Merle Baker, Warren Winkler, John Tanis, " Queenie " Meyer, Boyd MacKenzie, Jim Doyle, Neil Currens, Bill Schatz, and Leo Plaunt. The Jays opened their season at home with a conference game with Augustana. The boys from " Augie " were just too good for " Billy ' s Boys " and Elmhurst lost 54 to 0. In a vain attempt to score, the Jays took to the air in the fourth period and the orange men from Rock Island scored three touchdowns by intercepting three passes. In the next game, Elmhurst traveled to River Forest to meet Concordia. That game Football J. Thomas and N. Jones work together to bring down Illinois Wesleyan man in hard- fought battle. 69 Leo Flaunt look. ' fur a receiver in the Augustana game.

The touchdowns were scored on a pass from Meyer to MacKenzie and an end run by John Tanis. After the half the Cougars were an inspired team and went on to score four more touchdowns •hile the Jays could only manage to tally once on a thirty-four yard " sleeper " play by MacKenzie. If it hadn ' t been for some bad mistakes made by the Blue Jays the score might well have been just the reverse. The next game has gone down in history as the worst defeating Elmhurst has ever taken from Wheaton. The Crusaders were bigger, faster, and in all ways a much superior team and the Jays could do nothing to stop them. The final score was 66 to 0, and that is enough said, but Wheaton had better look out for next year ' s game. Playing their second home game, the Blue- and-White were hosts to Millikin. Millikin was at their peak that day and the Jays were un- able to stop them from scoring a 50 to 0 victory. An over-night trip to Carthage was one of the high points of the season for the Jays. " Queenie " Meyer and several of the other boys got a real thrill when they saw " Rocket Man " at a Galesburg movie theatre. Queenie must ha ' e gotten some ideas from R.M. because in the game the next day he took off like a rocket to snag a pass in the end zone for a score. Another touchdown was scored by John Tanis on a foiu ' teen-yard end run, but the scores didn ' t help the gridders from Elmhurst as Carthage scored six touchdowns to win 38 to 12. A perfect Homecoming was ruined when Illinois AA sleyan defeated the Blue Jays 39 to 0. The team put up a good fight even though they were behind from the first. Not too many people went away from that game without the feeling that they had seen a hard fought contest even though the score did not show it. For the last game at home, Elmhurst was matched with powerful North Central. Again the Jays were in there trying, but their best just didn ' t seem to be enough. The final score was 55 to 7, Elmhurst getting its touchdown on a pass from MacKenzie to Charlie Davey after a sixty-yard march down the field engineered 70 Teamwork illustrated as John Tanis goes around end with Fieber leading the interference in game against Augustana. Football by Merle Baker. The extra point was kicked by John Thomas. Lake Forest scored fifty points to win from the Blue Jays in the last game of the season. Elmhurst got two points in the last period on a safety. The Elmhurst College football team of 1949 didn ' t win any games and lost several by lop- sided scores, but the fighting spirit that all the players had was something to be admired. To take a beating each week is twice as hard as winning. But it would be nice to win a game once in a while. Coach Kastrinos is looking forward to a much better season next year. Led by co-captains-elect WallyTRock and Larry Tilly, fourteen lettermen will be back to avenge this year ' s season.

Cheerleaders When Athletic chairman Desenis pro- fessed his " handling " of the Cheerleaders at the opening SU meeting, he started the spirit- raisers ' year with a bang. Results of his efforts were shown at Homecoming when the cheer- leaders appeared for action in new outfits. New blood spiced the group with only two ' eteran cheerleaders returning.

Coach Bob Thompson ' s Blue Jays of the 1949-1950 basketball season played creditable ball throughout the eighteen-game campaign. The hoopsters were hard-pressed because of height difficulties and consequently were on the short end of the score for a majority of the games. Captain Joe Meyer of the first se- mester and co-captains Bob Manley and " Slats " Wolatz of the second semester played excellent ball while leading an outscored but not always outplayed Jay team. The blue-and-white team opened the season with a hard-fought and spectacular triumph over a stubborn Concordia five. The score changed hands many times during the course of the game, and with the Jays trailing by one point with about three seconds to go, " Duke " Larson set himself at mid-court for the shot that swished the nets. The final score was Elmhurst 50, Concordia 49. B. Manley was 73 Kay Dankel leaping for jump liall in Cartliage game. Don Seller and Wolatz have this situation well in hand.

The traveling Blue Jays lost their first C.C.I, game to Millikin, 73-47, giving way in tlie last half after tying the score with fifteen minutes remaining. Manley was high with 13 points. Wheaton took the Jays in a home game played at York High. The Jays played a fine, hard-fought game until the last eight minutes. Wheaton then forged ahead from a small two- point lead and won (i5-4(). A ' ally Bizer was high with 13 points. Lake Forest played impro ed hall and the Jays lost their first game to the Foresters since the conference was organized four years ago. " Duke " Larson was high with 14 ))oints as the Lake Forest team won 46-35. Elmhurst lost their fourth and fifth games in a row to North Central and Concordia. A North Central free throw after the final whistle liad blown gave them a one j oint 61-60 victory. 74 Don Seller poured in 18 points for 1 he Jays. At Concordia a Blue Jay rally in the last few minutes fell three points short and Concordia won 64-61. Captain Joe Meyer was high with 14 points. Elmhurst finally tasted victory again by easily whipping a small but unruly Aurora five. Don Seller set the hoops on fire with his 21 points which was the individual high total for the Jays first eight games. This accomited for one-third of the Jays ' 66-48 victory. Elmhurst then dropped two close games in a row on tlte home court. Carthage came from a ten point half-time deficit to win 55-50. Seller again was high with 16 points. Lake Forest edged the Jays in the last few minutes and won 50-45 as the Jays dropped their third conference game. Seller continued on his scoring spree by collecting 19 points. The Blue Boys from Illinois College trounced the Jays ' 68-42 in a home game. The Jays ' lack of height was a vivid deciding factor in this contest. The Titans from Illinois Wesleyan were given a scare by the Jays and it took the new two-minute rule to aid the victors in their 63-57 win over the Jays. Manley scored 17 for the Blue-and-White. North Central proved to be quite evasive on their home court. The Jays had difficulty in coping with the Cardinals ' man-to-man press all over the floor and found themselves on the short end of one of the fastest games of the season. The final count of the adding machine was North Central 97, Elmhurst 70. Seller had 16 and Manley 13 points. The Blue Jays won their first conference game at the expense of a touring Augustana five from Rock Island. It was a close game from start to finish, but with Bob Manley ' s dead-eye accuracy in accumulating 23 points, the Jays won 59-57. Augustana proved more formidable on their home floor as they took the traveling Elmhurst quintet, 78-55. Seller was high with 12 points.

The Blue Jays, however, had the Crusaders on their toes for most of the game as the 39-35 half-time score indicates. W. Bizer and Manley shared scoring honois for Elm- hurst with 15 jKjints each. The men who constituted this year ' s team were Joe Meyer, Bol) Manley, Don Seller, Armin Bizer and Stan Hodock at forward positions; Ray Dankel, " Augie " irkus and Don Hafner at center, and Wally Bizer, Bob " Slats " Wolatz and " Duke " Larson at the guard posts. Prospects for next year ' s quintet look good and with the abilities of Coach Bob Thompson, Elmhurst ' s basketball stock should soar. 76 1949 Baseball During the 1949 baseball seamen the Elm- hurst College baseball team, under the able tutelage of " Pistol Pete " Langhorst, split even on twelve games, winning six and losing six. Of these twelve games, eight were of the con- ference variety. In conference play another draw wa=! recorded as there were four favorable decisions against four on the negative side of the slate. With this commendable showing Elmhurst ended in the upper bracket of the conference standings. Opening day was ended with a sour note when Wheaton took the measure of Elmhurst 9 to 4, but the Blue and White went on from there to take a brilliant 2 to 1 verdict over powerful North Central. The next time out the Jays split a twin bill with Carthage losing the first game 7 to 4 and winning the second 13 to 0. The team then absorbed three straight losses, losing to Lake Forest 9 to 8, Millikin 7 to 5, and Illinois Wesley an 7 to 0. The Blue Jays then snapped out of their doldrums, momen- tarily at least, when they defeated the Chicago teachers 10 to 2, but then dropped a 12 to 4 game to the Crusaders of Wheaton. The Blue and White retaliated in a blaze of glory by winning their final three games. They defeated the Chicago teachers 19 to 0, and they defeated Augustana in a double header 10 to 4 and 4 to 0 to close the curtain on the final performance of the year. Gone are such stars as Bizer, Kolwitz, Kafka, and Schneider, but returning are many experi- enced veterans including: Bob Manley and Don Seller, pitchers; Russ Boeger, Clyde Weber, and Harold Potts around the infield; Duke Larson, John Thomas, Rich Branding, and " Scratch " Kurotsuchi round out the fly chasers. The catching department will probably be manned by Wally Solberg. The prospects of a successful winning 1950 season are no longer just a figment of the imagination, but that which approaches stark reality in its broadest sense. 1949 BASEBALL TEAM: KNEELING: Jin Schneider, Clyde Weber, Floyd Christensen, Harold Potts, Roy Ku- rotsuchi.

The queen and her court watch the proceedings. E. 1. 1. -1949 I T was on Alay U, 1949, that virtually all the best midwestern track teams, except the Big Nine, gathered here at Elmhurst to participate in the fifteenth annual J ' lmhiirst Intercollegiate Invitational track and field meet. As the people began to gather and the events began to take place, it was seen that this E.I.I, was tiuly one of the greatest since the event ' s initiation. Tho n willi the final honors awarded to Whea- ton, DeKall), and Beloit, who finished with 51, 40, and 35 points respectively, Elmhurst was once more satisfied that this annual affair was a roaring success. The result of the success was personified in the record-breaking shot-put of Peterson of Wheaton, who bolted the big ball 46 feet 8 inches to surpass the pre dous record of 40 feet 7 inches, set by Bare of Bradley. Finally, the success of the E.I.I, was brought into its full glory as one of the most sparkling e ' ents of the year, when Miss Jane Tes chner was chosen foreign as queen, with Ruth Millei ' , Marcella Chant, Joanne Hillebrand, and Betty McKee as her attendants. Traditionally, the queen awarded the first place trophy after each event, and the court presented the remaining four honors. To mention the outcome of a few of the events: Schimtacker of Beloit won the one- mile; Loyola took the 440; 120 high hurdle gave Wheaton five big points; Beloit came back once again to take the two-mile: Wheaton the 220 low hurdle; and Loyola finished all powerful in the one-mile relay. Incidently, these are just a few of the contests held on what is considered to be one of the best tracks in the state of Illinois. It is with anticipation of an even greater E.I.I, in 1950 that the people at Elmhurst, and the people of the pai ' ticipating colleges, are looking forward; for it is just such events as this one in the field of sports which make up a large part of our college life. 78 CROSS COUNTRY TEAM: SllATKlJ; J).

Faced with the serious necessity of grooming competent reser ' es, Mr. Arends did a commendable job in liiiilding a fine nucleus for the 1950 team.

HE Blue-and-White goU team this year did a splendid job in belting the little white ball around the green by finishing the season in the top half of the conference standings. With such top-notchers as Harry Lavin, Wally Bizer, and the Williams twins returning in 1950, another fine record was compiled. Such teams as Wheaton, Illinois Tecli, North Central, and Lake Forest again felt the wrath of the Blue Jays experience. 80 Men ' s intramural basketball games are rough and rugged affairs, but they are fully enjoyed by all who participate. Men ' s Intramurals D URING t he past year an active and ex- tensive program of intramurals was once again carried on under the leadership of coaches Thompson, Langhorst and Kastrinos. Base- ball, football, and track dominated outdoor activities, while basketball and volleyball provided enjoyment for those who prefer indoor sports. The main objective of all interclass intra- murals lay in the winning of the class intra- mural plaque, awarded each year to the class accumulating the largest number of points during intramural play. Starting in the fall with touch football the play was rough and rugged, and the competition keen. A big, deceptive team of seniors emerged victors by downing the second place sophomores in the last game of the schedule. As a sidelight the annual alumni versus the intramural all-stars pre-homecoming game resulted in a victory for the alumni who boasted many stellar football players from past Elmhiu ' st varsity teams. The end of the football season brought basketball and the spirited play typical of of intramurals. As the schedule drew to a close the freshmen, who had previously beaten a tall, rangy and experienced sophomore team by one-pcint in an overtime, lost a crucial game to the seniors, and were tied for first place with the sophomores. Again these two teams fought to a 33-33 tie at the end of the regulation four quarters, and an overtime became necessary. Jimiping to an early lead in the overtime period, and using the two-minute rule to their advantage, the sophomores reversed the order of their previous meeting with the freshmen and won the class champion- ship. The inter-dorm rivalry, so intense in past years, seems to be entirely replaced by the high-spirited inter-class clashes. 81 Lediie Ivi iz Helen Holzkamper j)ei ' l ' (iriii agiley. 0 many Elmhurst coeds, one of the pleasant memories of college days is Women ' s Intramurals. Each girl will remember the excitement and the good-natured rivalry which accompanied the inter-class contests in the various sports. Under the direction of Miss Maude E. (Teach) Johnson, the girls meet weekly for athletic activities. During the course of the year, they participate in volleyball, basketball, archery, badminton, and softball. In each sport, class teams are formed to compete for the intramural championship. Women ' s Intramurals is a letter activity; those who win letters prize them highly because they represent great accomplishment. To win a letter, a girl must accumulate 500 points. If she plays on a class team in a sport, she gets 50 points. If she is a substitute, she gets 25 points. If her team is the winner of the tournament, she gets 25 extra points. She also earns 15 Women ' s ' Dou}:)le Dutch " is one of the most popular events among the girls dui ' ing their Thursday niglit intramural meetings. Some of these intramural girls have become exceedingly proficient in that fast and interesting game of badminton. Intramurals M. Kaiifmann demonstrates her archery ability. points for participation. To be eligible for a team, a girl must attend at least one over half of the practice sessions previous to a toiniia- ment. It is not a usual occurrence for a girl to get her letter in her junior year, but three girls of the class of ' 50 did accomplish this feat. They are Dorothy Cluever, Colleen Wegener, and Audrey Wagner. Vera Robb, also of the Class of ' 50, won her letter in three years but did not receive it imtil her senior year because she transferred to another school for one year. Each year, a sport leader is appointed by Miss Johnson to be student director of intra- murals and to represent the organization on the Women ' s Union cabinet. This year, Dorothy Cluever has held this position and has done a splendid job. This has been a good year for Women ' s Intramurals and will provide pleasant mem- ories for years to come. 83 Whenever I opex a book down here, A kibitzer — ESS (female) is bound to appear But then — there are better things to do Than studying when you ' re in the S.U!

It looked as if spring had come again to Elmhurst College on September 13, 1949, be- cause bits of green were scattered over the campus. It was just the new freshmen sporting their new green beanies and exploring the school grounds. Freshman Week was filled with the hustle and bustle of taking psychological exams and attending orientation classes. Work didn ' t captivate the whole time, as fun was included in the program. There was the freshman picnic where we ate and played " mixer " games until we were ready to " turn in. " At other times we square danced and took tours of Chicago. W e were taken to the Aquarium and the Museum of Science and Industry. On another tour we saw the astonishing sights of the Rail- road Fair. On both tours all of us country lads and lassies gasped in awe at the skyscrapers and wonders of the great city of Chicago. The Freshman Mixer was the next big event which gave our classmates a chance to become Class of 1953 acquainted with us. Many frosh threw off their green covering and came out to disi)lay their talents before a n e ' world of people. During the first six weeks we poor frosh were alwaysbowingtothesophomores. The unlucky ones who were caught without their " E " books orbeanies foimd themselves polishing tlie shoes or making the beds of our seniors. One morning the sophs must have thought we needed some exercise, when they came arovuid to bang on om- doors at. 6:30 and told us to go run around the track. Ho! Hiuu! The week before the Homecoming week-end, the frosh worked hard and diligently to collect trash and rubbisli for the big freshman bonfire to he biu ' ned the night before Homecoming. It seems as if there was a little confusion as to the date of the burning; the fire was lit a week early. Apparently our boys were caught off guard when some upper classmen, re-creating the annual problem, tried to burn it before the big night. Our six weeks of initiation were concluded with the ceremonious torch parade and lighting of the bonfire, when we reluctantly?? l)ut hap- pily discarded oiu ' beanies and we were " really " in. The year continued with many new and •aried experiences climaxed l y the biggest project of the year for the freshman class, the Freshman Informal. Fish netting, enchanted octupi, and sea weed magically transformed the gym into a fanciful -ersion of Da ' ey Jones ' Locker to make it one of the most unique dances of the year. 86 These poor, little, innocent, unsuspecting freshmen were found guilty of various misdemeanors by Kangaroo Court. Freshmen Frosh fill-up at the picnic during The Frosh characterized their float, " School Daze " , and kept things rolling Freshman week.

The outstanding work-together-ability of tlie Class of 1952 was given unusual oppor- tunity to prove itself again in this, its sopho- more year. Under the guidance of its fine officers : Robert Mensendiek, president; George Wright, vice- president; Arlene Trnka, secretary, and Ken- neth Mitchell, treasurer, and its advisor, Dr. Harvey DeBruine, the class worked together in the carrying out of all its important functions. The first of these was the social orientation of the freshmen, the sophomores being in charge of the Freshman Kangaroo Court, and aiding the Class of ' 53 in their preparations for the Homecoming bonfire. The class had, for its second undertaking, the revision, re-writing, and publication of the annual student directory under the leadership of Joan Johanning and Don Gabler. This year, for the first time in history for the directory, it was in the hands of the student body before Class of 1952 Tliis group of sophomores, Meenen, Johanning, Gabler, Those poor Frosh at Kangaroo Court were under the and Trnka were instrumental in producing a fine Directory. watchful eye of the Sophomores and the class officers. 92 the Christmas hoHdays, and was an attractive Httle pubHcation, at that. Early December was the season for the sophomore semi-formal — " Snowflake Silhou- ettes. " The entire affair was under the co- chairmanship of Pat Hoffman and Warren Winkler, who did an outstanding job of organizing things and keeping them under control; while Ardiene Lang and Laurence Tilly headed the decorations committee, which had a major part in making it truly a dream of a dance with shadowy tree silhouettes, un- meltable snowmen and ladies, heavenly music, delicate snowfiakes and velvet blue lights. It was certainly a memorable evening for all, and especially for the sophomores who had worked such long and happy hours in order to make it the success that it was, following the true Class of ' 52 tradition. Throughout the entire year, the class dis- tinguished itself by having its representatives in all the College Theatre productions and major functions of the campus, its outstanding leaders and silent hard workers always co- operating to maintain its good name and make their days at Elmhurst College worthwhile and enjoyable. Later in the year the class was also in charge of an informal Saturday night affair which proved to be one of the best of its kind. And so one day in May, the sophomores spent a glorious afternoon picnicking together, playing and eating, walking and talking, reminiscing over their first two years, the friendships which had been made and strengthened, the knowledge sought and gained, and the count- less precious experiences which would never be lost. The Class of 1952 has much talent, leader- ship and creative ability, and a wonderful spirit of co-operation and willingness to work. With eager anticipation it looks forward to its final two years at Elmhurst.

M EMBF]RS of the Class of ' 51 put a chapter of their own into the Elmhurst book of memories. What junior can forget the after- noons he spent decorating — or perhaps a better term — disguising the gym for dances, or the evenings he rehearsed his Hues for the Student-Faculty Show, or the feeling of pride he experienced at the Junior Prom? These were all moments of class enthusiasm which is a mark of quality in the Class of ' 51. Although the size of the class has dwindled, the remaining members worked together to make 1949-50 a notable year in college history. " Activity " was the key word from the very I peginning of the year as the juniors started off their calendar with a street dance just a few weeks after school started. There was a little trouble with the weatherman who insisted in making people wear their coats as they danced, but everyone took the shivers in their stride and had a good time. Always ready to throw a party, the juniors held another informal a week following Class of 1951 The hifi event of the yeai ' , the Junior Prom, was cap- Old-fashioned street dance is given hy tlie .Junior Class ably headed by Gloria Stade and Mamoru Fujioka. on the Irion Hall lawn, the last Saturday in September lo: The JuniorClass did a hooiniug l)usiiies.s selling candy, cokes, antl candy apples, at l)askethall and football games. Juniors Christmas vacation. This time they laughed at the weatherman and held the " Canadian Capers " in the gym. The " way up north " atmosphere gave the guests a spirit of vigor which lasted throughout the evening of fun. Having inherited the presentation of the Student-Faculty Show from the Class of ' 49, the juniors tackled the new project with their usual enthusiasm and spirit of cooperation. The show was something different from usual with continuous action instead of a series of acts. The story, an original creation, was a satire on control, in which occiu ' red such rous- ing events as faculty letting-down-of-t he-hair parties and student revolutions. Some of the characterizations in the show will really be hard to forget. The high point of the year for any jimior class is, of course, the Junior Prom. Beautiful, gay, memorable, lovely— it ' s hard to find an adjective which really describes the 1950 Prom. It was just plain wonderful. The work of the class committees came to a grand climax on Saturday, May 13, at Medinah Country Club in an evening of dreams-come-true. Everything from the sumptuous buffet dinner held before the dance to the lovely queen and her court were the best that could be had. The juniors could feel justly proud of their accomplishment in giving the student body an evening of beauty and splendor. Yes, the Class of ' 51 wrote a chapter in the book of Elmhiu ' st, a chapter which will long remind us of the good old days we spent in college. 103 Juniors Kathryn Abele St. Louis, Missouri Priscilla Arvay Toledo, Ohio Elaine Avstermanx Chicago, Illinois Delores E.

Since 1941, Elmluu-st College students have been included in Who ' s Who Among College Students in American Universities and Col- leges, a book compiled each year honoring the outstanding graduates of that year. Primarily, it is a source book for industry and lousiness; it lists students throughout the nation who have shown exceptional ability during theii- college or university careers. The seniors selected for this honor were the choices of a committee composed of both stu- dent and faculty members. The selections foi- Who ' s Who are made on the basis of high scholastic achievements, character, leadership ability, and willingness to cooperate. There are eight Seniors from Elmhurst who received that honor this year: Dorothy Cluever, Mildred Joens, Geraldine Kapi)e, Robert Deufel, Norman Jones, Roland Radloff, Robert Witzeman, and Robert Man- ley. Elmhiu ' st is truly proud of these students who have made so many conti ' ibutions to its welfare. Class of 1950 September, 1949 -three shoil years had elapsed since that group of green fi-eslimen had entered Elmhurst College. Classes began— lect res, tests, field woi ' k, practice teaching, and field trips; meetings, review practice, glee club, polyhymnia, foot- ball games and the like kept the seniors busy. But as the days grew colder and the leaves l)egan to turn to brilliant crimsons and golds, the date of the seniors ' last Homecoming drew near. Homecoming meant a i:iarade and a parade meant floats. The senior float had to be something flilferent, something really special. Chicken A ire, newspapers, wallpaper ])aste, paint, and hard work created " Big Sam, the Football Man " — sixteen feet of the finest football player Elmhiu ' st College has ever seen. The .judges thought so too, for " Big Sam " was awarded first prize. Homecoming was now history. Once again the student body settled down to its I ' egulai- routine, but not the Senior Class. They had othei ' i)lans. White glo -es with " No ' . 19 " on them apijcared all i) er the camjKis. Every e ' ening the strains of such songs as " They Called It Dixieland " could be heaid coming from the S.U., LH.A., or Room 12. The iMinstrel, of course! The seniors were " Ala- bamy Bound " on the " Showboat " . NoA ' ember 19 found the gym packed, as the curtain went up for the " Alabama Jubilee " . And when the " Midnight Choo-Choo Left for Alabam " , it as a thoroughly delighted audience that bid adieu to the Class of ' 50 ' s show. The first week of the new term found the seniors l)usy on the i)lans for the Senior In- formal which was to be held on February 4. It was the last big all-school event which this class would sponsor. Senior week — it was a week of j icnics, parties, and fim for the entire class, culminating in graduation and then final good-byes to the many friends made at Elmhurst. 110 WHO ' S WHO: SEATED: Geraldine Kappe, Robert Deufel, Dorothy Cluever, Mildied Juens.

As a graduate, you may continue to contribute to tfie growth of your Alma Mater by supporting the efforts of your National Alumni Association. The Notional Association seeks to bring news of the college to alumni through the ' Voice of Old Mam " and th rough 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 o f th ese 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 Elmhurstdoes 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 con 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. Elmhurst needs your help. Won t you give it generously?
