1 TfjEjLMS 1955 Volume 37 Slmhurst College Slmhurst, Jllims With deep humility the staff dedicates the 1955 Elms to Dr. William J. Halfter, instructor, counselor, and friend who is constantly striving to elevate the student to his noblest efforts in the intellectual and philosophical realms of achievement. His v arm smile and sincere Christian attitude have made him a definite part of the " Elmhurst Way.

The 1955 Elms is the result of co-operation between the staff mem- bers in an effort to develop a yearbook that truly portrays the " Spirit of Elmhurst. " Elms photographers are often seen taking pictures about campus or at some college event. Then comes the technical work such as general organization, copy, layout, the selling of ads. Finally the production is what you are holding in your hands now. Students of Elmhurst, we salute you! THE 1955 ELMS STAFF STUDENT UNION GOVERNMENT Back row, left to right: Richard Ellerbrake, Publications Chairman; Caroline Sturm, Social Life Chairman; Richard Turchi, Treasurer; Shirley Klosterman, Secretary; Robert Anderson, Business Manager. Front row: Ralph Meyer, Religious Life Chairman; Dan Schmiechen, Athletic Chairman; Walter Herrscher, President; Walter Brueggeman, Vice President; Donald Mayer, Second Vice President. Student Union Cabinet A great country cannot exist without an efficient and well-rounded govern- ment. Neither can a college community function well without an efficient and well-rounded Student government. The theme of the 1955 Elms is the Student Union government. Walter Herrscher, Student Union President, overlooks all ac- tivities. Caroline Sturm, Social Life Chairman, looks into the social life of the student body in the yearbook ' s first section. Dick Ellerbrake, the Publications Chairman, sees that the publications toe the mark in section number two. Ralph Meyer, Religious Life Chairman, co-ordinates religious activities in the third part, and Dan Schmiechen covers sports in section four. Administration, faculty, and student pictures follow, and the advertisement section completes the 1955 Elms. The ten cabinet members hold the most important positions in the Student Union government. Hence they are most responsible to the students. Whether discussing the budget, or considering some other college activity involving the students and their relationships to each other, to the faculty, or to the administra- tion, the Cabinet seeks to fully represent the students as a whole. The student Senator represents particular groups, such as the Senior Dorm Students or the Freshman Town Students. Able to bring back to the entire Senate the wishes of his or her group, the Senator initiates legislation and also votes on recommendations made by the Cabinet. The Senate is thereby the direct means through which students can make themselves heard in the affairs of the Student government.

But their timidity soon turned into participation in the various planned activities such as the Track Meet, Matins, tests, counseling and their very first meals in Commons. It thus became a cherished week that the 1955 Freshman class will long remember.

As a result, the 1955 speakers proved a diversified program. Congressman Walter Judd lectured on the Far East, Judge Youngdahl spoke on Christianity and Politics, Dr. Karl Kraeling presented an illustrated lecture on old Palestinian religious manuscripts. Dr. Remenyi talked about Hungarian Culture, and Dr. Pollard of Oak Ridge Laboratories lectured on Atomics. The lectures were educa- tional, interesting, and thought-provoking.

Within the confines of South Hall took place the Big-Little Sister Program, a slumber Party and the May Day Festival. A " brain washing " initiation for the Guppies, followed by a banquet at Plenty- wood Farm, was the highlight of Theater Guild this year. Monthly meetings featured guest speakers, such as Mrs. Musil of the Elmhurst Children ' s Theater. The Guild seeks to orientate the students to the work of the theater, giving them practical experience in acting, set construction, and other phases of theater work.

At the first meeting, Mr. Wukasch ex- plained the organization ' s purpose. A film case study of a boy age 1 1 provided another helpful meeting for the future teachers. A movie dealing with racial prejudice and a program on the reconstruction work done in narcotics comprised the Sociology Club ' s activities for the year.

Gannes, a movie in the Loop, records at Madame Gras ' , and a picnic (all in French, naturally!) topped this year ' s list of activities. With vivacious and determined leadership, the Hungarian Club inaugurated a year of worth-while cultural activities. The Magyars decorated a mammoth tree and, in conjunction with the Chapel Choir, presented a play in the Museum of Science and Industry ' s " Christmas Around the World " series. In December a Hungarian Dinner was prepared for the Administration. The Orchestra Hall Concert of Ernst von Dohnanyi, a farewell party for Rev. Mo ' nar, and a reception for Dr. Joseph Remenyi, Lecture Series Speaker, kept Edie Zoltani and her group hopping. Talented members produced a skit in Hun- garian for the Hammond Radio Station and also danced a Hungarian number in the Eighth Street Theater. To top off the year, hand painted pottery straight from the Motherland was sold to raise funds for the department.

Movies about various athletic organi- zations were shown regularly to club members. Kindling the flame of fellowship between students and faculty. Firesides ' groups gathered informally on Friday evenings in faculty homes. Co-Chairmen Clyde Lange and Lillian Olson conferred with Mr. Wukasch and Mrs. Jones in the selecting of these relevant and pertinent topics: campus dating customs, brother- hood, UMT, and dorm-town relations. Through a positive approach to the topics, discussion leaders made an effort to draw out honest opinions and help Firesiders to formulate clearly their own thinking on these issues. To visit new faculty members ' homes was this year ' s special goal. By handling introductions and serving refreshments, the student host and hostess at each home contributed their part in this program of promoting a close and congenial relationship between all members of the campus family.

Operation Foreign Student, a Student initiated and promoted project, seeks to bring deserving students of other lands to our campus. This past year, Hy Sang Lee, Seoul, Korea, was the OFS sponsored student. For the first time in many years, a debate team was organized and entered competition with numerous colleges and universities throughout northern Illinois. The controversial subject debated was the natio nal debate question, " Should Communist China be admitted to the United Nations? " The debaters took either the affirmative or the negative side of the question as the occasion demanded.

This non- profit agency manages to supply not only the essential academic material, but also the odds-and-ends and rare delicacies that lap up the hard-earned change of every student. Walter Brueggeman was the sole member of this year ' s Senior Class to be elected to Who ' s Who of American Colleges and Universities. The prerequisites for election are outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership, and service to the school. Walt is from Goehner, Nebraska, and is a pre-theological student majoring in sociology. WALTER BRUEGGEMAN I Chapel Choir Under the sincere and energetic direction of Mr. T. Howard Krueger, the Chapel Choir sang twenty-nine off-campus concerts this year. Special campus appearances were Honors Day and Commencement. Chapel-Assembly anthems are the group ' s main responsibility. The Spring tour carried the Choir through Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. High-lights were a picnic at the Meyer farm, tours of paper and lumber mills, the inspection of a cheese factory in Wisconsin, Minniehaha Falls, and Mr. Krueger ' s speechlessness following the first concert. Tour profits became the last installment in the payment for new robes. A garden party of folk dancing and campflre singing concluded a successful year of " singing to the glory of God.

Everywhere they went they were well-received. The Varsity Quartet and the Mad Regalists, an octet, provided added enjoyment in every Glee Club Concert. Then in the Spring the " lucky number " of thirty-two voices boarded a bus for an extended tour of the East. Tour memories include the Broadway musical " Can Can, " Niagara Falls, and the fine work of fill-in accompanist Bob Thatcher. A weekend tour in February, the final Chapel-Assembly concert, and the annual picnic rounded out the Club ' s activities. Mr. David Austin again used his rounded musical know-how to successfully direct the Glee Club (while also keeping them in line). Qlee Club Persomel Zour Program FIRST TENORS A.

Mandolin, washtub, washboard, ukulele and the required number of musicians formed the Polyhymnia " Band, " which played at Women ' s Union functions and high school concerts on tour. With " The Twenty-third Psalm " topping the favorite list, the " Polly Girls " roamed over the rolling hills of Missouri and the farmlands of Iowa on their spring tour, sang at Honor ' s Day and the ground-breaking ceremonies for the new Girls ' Dorm, and invaded local churches whenever possible. The fine musical tones of these young women held the audiences number after number and exemplified their fine abilities. The annual farewell banquet for the Seniors at the Homestead gave the group a chance to show their gratitude to Mrs. Repp, director, and repent for the tricks and trials they cause ... at least until next year.

Vespers in the College Chapel on Monday and Wednesday evenings give the Senior Pre-theological students an opportunity to challenge their classmates. p r e Z h e STEERING COMAAITTEE-Seated, left to right: Wesley Hummel, Sophomore; Regina Mitten, Christian Ed.; Charles Waddle, Senior.

Society African drunn-beats, fetishes and rising nationalism became more real as mis- sionary-science teacher, Walter Trost, addressed the first meeting of the Pre-The Christian Ed Society in December. For the February meeting the steering com- mittee secured two outstanding Chicago churchmen who proceeded to stimulate the group f rom a new perspective, that of the layman ' s view of the minister ' s job. During his annual visit from Eden to scan the pre-the prospects, Dr. Schroder spoke on " Ministerial Ethics. " April found Captain James Smith bringing the challenge of Army chaplaincy, its role and duties. Under the direction of their advisor. Dr. Eugene Wehrii, the steering committee also planned and organized the " Christian Higher Education Sunday " program, sending out pre-the ' s to a dozen churches. c H r i s t a i H S d 73 STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION CABINET First row: Ruth Nickelson, Reporter; Bob Ahrendt, Treasurer; Rhea Menzel, Secretary; Les Weiner, President; Wes Hummel, Veep; Marge Essebaggers, Artist.

Student Christian Association " SCAB " and " Toast of the Town, " creative Saturday evenings of campus fellow- ship, exemplify the unifying Christian Spirit which SCA nourishes among students. " Voyage Surprise " gave a revealing flash of the French people, the " Parachute Jump " thrilled the kids at the Circus, and " Singspirations " echoed through the dorms on Sunday noons. " The Courtship and Marriage Series " dealt with one of the crucial areas of student concern and need. Other monthly meetings featured Rev. George Nishi- moto of Ellis Community Center, Group Dynamics Leader Loren Walters, " Summer Jobs, " and the annual Campus Service Project. The Winter Sports Retreat at Lake Geneva between semesters " re-created " over a hundred students and faculty who discussed " My Role as a Christian in a Church Related College. " Nine students journeyed to UN Conferences at Wisconsin U. and New York City. " Plows and Seeds for India " and the WUS Drive netted over $350 for World Service and needy students. The Permanent Clothing Drive helped orphans in Seoul. Intercollegiately, at the Fall and Spring District Conferences Elmhurst contributed leadership and Spirit in the exchange of challenging ideas. A " cluster conference " between Elmhurst and North Central Cabinets resulted in a stimulating " swap- shop. " All activities originate from the fertile minds of commission members who worship, discuss and plan weekly. Twice monthly the Cabinet convenes to co- ordinate all phases of the program, especially that of the Commissions. Front row: Ed Bodnam, Ron Branding, Chan Hadley, Captain; Bill Nisi, Don Boevers.

With only 12 days of practice behind them the Jays ran into the smooth operating power of Illinois Wesleyan and were overpowered 25-0 The new Palmieri split-T never got started against the first charging Titan line. In their second contest encounter with a CCI foe the following week, the Blue and White entertained the Foresters from Lake Forest. Although outweighed in the line, the visitors could gain only a 20-6 victory. The Jay offense showed sparks of motion as they ground 96 yards without faltering for the TD as Ron Branding cracked in the end zone from a foot out. Traveling to Naperville for their next contest, the Bluejays held hope of disappointing a large band of North Central Homecomers. The two teams battled on even terms for three quarters. Disaster struck early in the final canto, when a pass was completed in the end zone for the deciding marker and the Jays traveled back to Elmhurst nursing the wounds of a 7-0 defeat. The Navy Pier lllini were the EC Homecoming foe and the Jays exhibited their brand of football, both offensively and defensively. For 58 minutes the Jays were the superior team, but a backfield fumble and a touchdown aerial turned an apparent victory into a bitter 7-6 setback. A long trip to Augustana was almost ruined completely on the opening play from scrimmage when the Vikings struck 50 yards through the air to put them in touchdown territory. The Jays fought gamely back and scored on two long spectacular passes, but it was not near enough as the Vikings rolled to a 28-12 win. The blockers start to form for a long run. Hypnotized by the ball Stepping out of the conference, the Jays ran into a real powerhouse at Milwaukee and the Milwaukee State Teachers. Using a potent single wing, the Teachers romped to a 52-6 rout. Once again, the Jays found the air lanes the only way to nnove as the ground attack failed to operate. The Big Blue from Millikin closed the home season for the Jays and three senior members of the squad. Captain Chan Hadley and Troy Brown in the line and fullback Herb Duncheck battled through their final Elmhurst appearance in vain as the downstate conference rival smashed out a 48-7 conquest. Wheaton was the site of the season ' s finale, and the Crusaders took advantage of early lapses to build a 20 point lead and appeared to be on the way to a complete rout. However the Jays refused to crumble completely and in the final 40 minutes of struggle the Crusaders were able to score only twice. At the conclusion of the season, Gary " Rocky " Scanlon was elected most valuable by his team-mates. The " mighty mite " from Momence was the smallest lineman in the conference at 145 lbs. but one of the toughest and most determined players under any circumstances.

Cross-Comtry — 1954 19 Navy Pier 44 37 North Central 21 15 Wright 48 49 Beloit 19 Macalester 61 48 North Central 33 Carroll 41 18 Milwaukee 37 The cross-country squad had its annual Fall appearance punctuated by at least one paradoxical fact which deserves noting. This was the fact that, whereas in its previous season the Elmhurst team won both its meets against its old rival. North Central, this last 1954 season saw the Jays lose its two contests with that college. However, Elmhurst fans may feel themselves compensated some- what for this loss by knowing that the Jay squad won its meet against Navy Pier, although in its previous season Elmhurst met defeat at the hands— or rather, feet— of that team. The season saw several new faces on the team in addition to returning lettermen Robert Hedeman, Wesley Hummel, Raymond Whitehead, and Captain Larry Gates. Among the runners were Joe Seger, who consistently placed in the first five, and Paul Johnson, who shared Whitehead ' s laurels in finishing among this group of " chosen ones. " Justin Kneeland, Ronald Yount, and Robert Carney completed the picture of the roster an d although they didn ' t manage to finish among the first five, they nevertheless capably demonstrated to the opposing teams their driving will and endurance. Although the team ' s record wasn ' t as good as the one of the previous season, it was nevertheless an enviable one, as the Jays defeated four of its competitors in six meets, two of which were triangles, and even rolled up a perfect score of 15 in one of its meets.

Wesleyan 102 Conference games Zhe Mine jay Story The Blue Jays ended the 1954-1955 basketball campaign with a 10-14 won- loss record. Top feat of the year was a seven-game winning streak in non-con- ference competition. Conference wise, Elmhurst had two wins against ten losses. The Jays averaged 71.8 points a game compared with 83.2 points scored by opponents in twelve games. Pat Lira, Elmhurst center, led the conference by scoring 241 points in 11 games for an average of 21.8 points per game. Howard Hohman placed sixth in conference scoring and second in conference free throw shooting percentage. Lira was named to the first all-conference team. Total scoring for the season was 1793 points for the Blue Jays, which is a 74.7 average per game compared with 1906 points scored by the opponents for a 79.4 average. This year the Jays shot for a 35.4 per cent from the floor while they hit 66.7 per cent of their free throw attempts. This year ' s squad had one senior, three juniors, three sophomores, and eleven freshmen. mior Varsity Kneeling: Jim Duret, Chuck Bawal, Wally AAohr.

Following their opening triumph of the year against Lake Forest 8-2, as Pat Lira blazed a one hitter at the Foresters, the Jays tried vainly to find victory. Augustana ' s Vikings notched a double victory by single runs to start the downfall. The opener went 11 innings with Augie winning 4-3. In the second contest, a 10 run sixth inning still left the Jays a run shy, losing 11-10. Millikin ' s Big Blue, journeyed to IC field and edged home with a double win 4-3 and 5-2. As it was the whole season long, defensive lapses by the Jays rather than the offensive power by their opposition led to defeat. Wheaton continued its spell against the locals as they romped to a 22-4 victory, aided by nine Elmhurst errors. At Naperville the Blue and White dropped another pair 10-6 and 12-2, as the Cardinals went on a two game hitting spree. The season ended at Wh ' eaton, where the team played its best team game following the opening win. Pat Lira and Dick Kamm hooked up in a pitching dual as Wheaton was hitless for four innings. A walk, two errors, and a hit gave Wheaton a start and they finished with a 10-2 victory. Second baseman Bob Anderson led the team in hitting with a .333 average good for 12th in the conference. Pat Lira led the CCI pitchers with 52 strikeouts in 42 innings. Troy Brown was the only senior on the squad, so an experienced squad will be on hand next year.

C. Arends, the tennis team turned in another good season. The team record was a favorable one, losing only to Wheaton and Augustana. The freshmen, Herb Grote and Brian Fullmer, sparked the singles attack throughout the season. Herb losing only one conference match all year. The high-light of the season came when Elmhurst beat Wheaton during their second meeting after losing to them earlier in the season. The conference tennis championship was held at Elmhurst this year. Augustana won very easily but Elmhurst surprised most of the experts by finishing in a tie for second place. Every member of the team won at least two points. Gordon Maxon, playing at the number one position, won his first singles match before losing to George Ray, the champion in that division. Captain Harold Grote also won his first singles match before losing to Jack Lofgren, the champion, in a very tight match. Eric Gass, playing in number three position also won his first match before losing in the semi-finals. Dick Marquardt had the most success by winning the conference championship in the number four position. The first doubles team, Harold and Gordon AAaxson, beat Lake Forest before losing to Augustana, who again won the championship in that division. The second doubles team reached the finals by beating Wheaton and AAillikin, before losing to Augustana in the finals. So once again the tennis team put up a fine representation for Elmhurst College.

Ron Guilbert was manager but played in three meets also. Lee Smith was the only Senior on the squad. The conference meet found Elmhurst coming in seventh, averaging 87 the first day and 82 the second day. Thus the 1955 season of the golf team ended up with a 4 win, 5 lost record.

Slmhurst College Uoard foreword Elmhurst College has always been known for its efficient administration and its devoted faculty. 1954-1955 was no exception. The administration has con- tinued its " open-door " policy in order that problems arising at Elmhurst may be discussed with the students themselves. A friendly disposition greets all student affairs. The 1954-1955 faculty contained those sterling men and women who have done so much to make Elmhurst an outstandingly rich college— not in wealth but in knowledge. Student-faculty relationships seemed to be at a peak of friendliness this year, and faculty members have gone out of their way to personally com- municate with students. The 1954-1955 faculty will long live in our memories. DR. EUGENE S. WEHRLI A.B., Oberlin College; B.D., Eden Seminary; Ph.D., University of Chicago Associate Professor of Religion REV. J. W.
