THE ELMS for Nineteen Fifty-Nine MARLENE HILDEBRANDT Editor-in-Chief GARY BURIANEK Business Manager ROBERT W. SWORDS Faculty Advisor ELMHURST C -r-E the nineteen fifty-nine Elms, volume forty one, r. ■ published by the students of Elm burst College, Elm hurst, Illinois It is indeed fitting that we should dedicate this annual to you, our new President, for it through you that we have been inspired spiritually, intellectually, and socially in this, your first full year as President of Elmhurst College. You have guided us along the path of better Chris- tian life in chapel services and assemblies. In your role as President and friend to the college, you have made wider horizons available to us that we might grow in knowledge. Through you we have found enjoyment in our college social activities as you joined in them and participated with us. May the Lord, God, be at your side always as you guide Elmhurst College into the future. With all your contributions in mind, we dedicate this 1959 Elms to you ... Dr. Robert C. Stranger On May 7, 1958, Dr. Robert C. Stanger was officially inaugurated presi- dent of Elmhurst College, a position he was called upon to fill the preceeding fall. Once a student and instructor at Elmhurst College, he .now has the honored position of returning to his alma mater as president. This 1959 Elms is meant to bring to mind not only a picture of this past year ' s activities, but also and perhaps most important of all, this Elms is meant to retain for the student a lasting story of life at Elm- hurst College, no matter what the year may be. There- fore, the theme of this annual is one designed towards interpreting four years on this campus as seen through the eyes of any senior. In developing the story of an Elmhurst student, his life is seen as a series of nine phases. To begin with, even before enrollment, a prospective student in- quires about the college usually through the office of admissions, and contacts are made with the deans and the business office. After arrival here, from the first day and even until the last moment, he con- tinues to seek information and help from admini- strative personnel. Therefore, this first phase is " We Asked. " after asking, a student listens, not only to advice but to instructional material. The people he listens to most avidly are his professors in class or conferences. Thus this division is labeled " We Listened. " Along with his courses he includes num- erous activities outside of the classroom. Catering to the desire for culture and the intellectual development of oneself for a profession, a student spends his time studying in the library so that he may do himself academic justice. He further develops himself by at- tending lectures, discussions, and joining groups re- lated to professional interests. It becomes necessary then to say " We Supplemented. " One still finds time to join other groups which develop his creative ability. Many opportunites avail themselves in the fields of art, music, writing, speech, theatre, and student govern- ment. Each of these areas can allow a student to bring himself recognition and honor. Because of his achievements, a student summarizes still another phase as " We Produced. " Aside from the intellectual aspect, a student also needs spiritual development. Elmhurst College offers such opportunities through- out the year in weekly assemblies and vespers, in a week assigned to illustrate practical religious ex- periences, in special candle light services, and in the construction of a new chapel. Thus, a student also says " We Worshiped. " One likewise needs physical development so the phase " We Played " is included. In this division one sees the athletic activities on campus in which team cooperation as well as physical ability is needed. Still there are other times when a student just wants to take it easy and enjoy himself with others. Thus, we have a section of purely social activities at which " We Relaxed " and a section in which underclassmen are featured so that one can identify those with whom " We Lived. " After pro- gressing through four years of college, a senior ex- presses still anoth er phase, " We Graduated. " It seems, therefore, that a student can develop his mental, physical, spiritual, and social needs through the activities on our campus. This annual proposes to illustrate such a story.

But we will always be ask- ing, for it is a part of our curious, inquisitive nature. Someday, we will be answering, for as we learn we must share. Now, however, was our time to ask — to seek — to question those who know. At Elmhurst we had that opportunity. For here those who know were willing to share. They always had time to give answers and assistance — a blending of both knowl- edge and understanding gained from experience. How many times did we think, " It is their job. " ? How few times did we realize, " They want to help us. " ? Our president, our administration, our nurse, the office and maintenance personnel — all were aware of our needs. " Are there any part-time jobs available? " , " Shall I take that course again? " , " May our organization use the school station wagon? " , " How can I overcome that difficulty? " , " Is my pay ready? " , " Where are the ladders? " So at Elmhurst, we were answered and advised. A question was never too trivial. A problem was never too great. We asked — there was always an answer. MR. ALFRED FRIEDLI Dean of College MISS GENEVIEVE STAUDT Dean of Students Every institution needs a staff of well experienced and helpful personnel; a college is no different. There are pertinent decisions which rest upon the shoulders of the president, such matters which will create the policies of the college. One couldn ' t begin to enumer- ate the many activities of Dr. Robert C. Stanger, President of Elmhurst College. There are countless numbers of meetings and conferences to attend, ob- ligations and duties to perform on and off campus. In each case they all become united to create a dif- ficult and time consuming position for the president as he presides over the affairs of the college. To help him though, Dr. Clarence Josephson fills the po- sition of Assistant to the President. Dr. Joe, as he is more popularly called by the students, is kept busily engaged in the financial matters of the college, see- in that all college and student accounts balance. 11 DR. CLARENCE JOSEPHSON Assistant to the President MR. GUS GRUENWALD Director of Public Relations To assist the president with other matters, Mr. Alfred Friedli is engaged as Dean of the College. Besides an instructor for some Education courses, his hours are busily spent with matters directly related to the faculy, board, or functioning policies of the college. It is basically his position to arrange schedules for activities, classes, and examinations for the con- venience of both students and faculty. Frequently he presides over Friday afternoon faculty meetings where rising problems are brought forth and a solution is then worked out. Perhaps the students become most familiar with the Dean of Students, Miss Genevieve Staudt. Her friendly smile and warm heart are open to the stu- dent from the minute they step on campus, up to graduation, and then often times many years after that. Her chief interest at Elmhurst College is to see that every student develops his abilities to the fullest extent, and she will go to any means to accomplish this feat. Whether it be for a conference about grades or ambitions, for advice about one ' s curricu- lum or personal problems, or for information about scholarships or jobs on or off campus, her office door is always open to welcome you. A week rarely passes during which one doesn ' t see Mr. Gus Gruenwald conducting a tour around cam- pus to show interested individuals exactly where Elm- hurst students spend their time. Youth groups, out- side or civic groups, individual parents and young MRS. DUNNIVANT Secretary adults frequently ask to come and look over the col- lege for a view of the educational facilities offered to prospective students. Welcoming these people is only a part of his busy role as Director of Public Relations. There are numerous letters to write pros- pective students and Mrs. Dunnivant is always on nand to carry out this necessary correspondence. There are brochures describing the college and its facilities that need designing and publication. Other means of publicity regardng college life demand time for visiting schools for their " College Night " and speaking to youth groups for similiar reasons. Extending college relations to the community are just as important, and this activity requires publicity of the college ' s cultural, social, academic, and athletic opportunities in newspapers and magazines. Three times a year the college welcomes the Board of Directors on campus when they gather to meet and decide major functioning policies of the college. These men and women are active civic leaders throughout the country, and their position on the board calls them together to discuss and decide major issues. This year with the new Hammerschmidt Me- morial Chapel nearing completion, the board be- gan formulating plans for a new men ' s dormitory and possibly a new dining room and snack shop. An- other decision of the board resulted in an applica- tion being made for a federal loan under the govern- ment ' s program for schools of higher education. The loan program, sponsored by the United States De- partment of Health, Education, and Welfare, will make loans available to students and also possible funds available for building construction. What ever physical ailment a student may claim, there is always a remedy Miss Ober, the college nurse, can find. The infirmary on the third floor of Commons frequently finds students bedded down for recooperation. When one isn ' t so fortunate to receive a few days of rest and quiet in the infirmary, Miss Ober always has a thermometer or pill on hand to help analyze and cure those aches and pains a student will develop.

The admini- stration office needs a staff of experienced women in the business office to carry out the many duties involved in keeping accounts, writing correspondence, and recording material into the files. Both the grounds and buildings demand daily attention so that the campus may be kept beautful and comfort- able. This task requires a maintenance staff and many busy hours. All these individuals connected with the administration of the college work together to make Elmhurst College not only a home for its students, but also an institution where they can re- ceive a higher education so that they may become better citizens in the future. Now Nile, you know the rest will do you good. OFFICE STAFF Mrs. McKenzie, Mrs. Koss, Mrs. Dalla, Mrs. Schaeffer, Mrs. Gaulke, Mrs. Benson. w m IB !

Not al- ways, for listening, besides increasing understanding, demands understanding. It is an activity of receiving, but it should not be passive. We as listeners must be active and open minded, as we are when speakers, and most of all, we must be receptive. And here at Elmhurst, what greater chance to listen — to fill our minds with the thoughts in which all knowledge is held. What finer sources of information than our teachers who explained basic principles, or historical facts, or sentence structure — the million particles of information that filled our world of learning. True, we must seek, we must ask, but to learn, we must listen — swallow every word that we, as individuals, can have offered to us. We may not always agree. That is our privilege. But we should always listen and be understanding of what we hear. We owe it to ourselves — we must decide for ourselves. No one else can directly force us to listen. Our college listen- ing experiences were a basic part of our lifelong learning experience. One thing we knew — we were welcome to learn. We listened — there was always a thought. We MR. HERSCHEL E.

ZIEBELL B.D. Instructor Greek True is the saying, " One thing leads to another. " So through our college life, one principle was based upon and depended upon another. We may even say one supplemented the other. First, we asked, then we listened, now we ourselves added to our own storehouse of knowledge, depending, as always, upon those who had gone before and those who were our contemporaries. We supplemented our classroom or textbook learnings with personal experiences, ad- ditional readings, informal discussions and active particpation in activities which enlarged the scope of our formal learning. Sometimes actual assignments or strict assimilation of facts may have lost their ap- peal; but new sparks of interest came from outside use of this s:me material. A fresh new outlook was obtained when a fresh new approach was made. And things seen in a different atmosphere were just as informing, just as full-filling, and were actual finish- ing touches in the process of developing a healthy, educated mind. Once again we were on our own — taking steps we really did not have to take, reading books we did not have to read, attending lectures we were not required to attend, learning, always learn- ing. We supplemented — there was always more to be learned. The Lecture Series Broadens Horizons The sixth annual lecture series of Elmhurst College was presented on four consecutive Fridays during the month of February and gave the college and its friends an opportunity to broaden their cultural in- terests. Each evening one guest speaker presented an outstanding address connected with the general theme of " The Responsibilities of Higher Education to a Democratic Society. " First lecturer this year was Frank R. Kille, associate commissioner of the Uni- versity of New York state, who spoke on " Higher Education and Science. " John T. Rettaliata, President of the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, addressed the group on " Higher Education In The Spance Age. " Dr. Douglas Knight, President of Lawrence College in Appleton, Wisconsin, informed the audience of the relationships between " The American Community and The Liberal College. " The final address of the series was given by Nels F. S. Ferre, Abbot Professor of Christian Theology at An- dover Newton Theological Seminary. His message placed emphasis in " Higher Educatin And Values, " indicating relatonships that do exist and ones that ought to exist. Following each lecture a question and answer period and a reception offered the lecturer and audience an opportunity to draw closer together and discuss relative issues on a more personal basis. 26 Nels F.

Firesides open acuity homes firesides Committee consisted of Airs. Jones, R. Brandon, E. Hoffeins, and Mr. Wukasb. It was their responsibility to arrange all Firesides meetings. Every year several opportunities are offered during the school program at which students can come to know their professors better and on a more intimtate basis. These informal meetings are called Firesides, the title given to the relaxed setting and discussions that prevails in a professor ' s home for an evening a students desire to discuss some question or idea pertinent to their college career and future. Begin- ning first in freshmen week, the new students on campus receive an opportunity to join in one of these enlightened experiences when a Firesides meet- ing is planned into their schedule. Then, throughout the year, professors again open their homes to all students to gather some Friday evening for an ex- change of ideas and information relative to the topic area. Such discussions have centered around paint- ings, college life, school standards, and campus prob- lems. No matter what the subject is, the students and faculty enjoy the opportunity of meeting outside the classroom to broaden their horizon and know each other better.

From morning until night, one can always hear different musical strains floating out from all the lesson and practice rooms as interested individuals earnestly en- deavor to master a vocal number, the piano, or a reed or wind instrument. As a result of these lessons and practice periods, many college students partake in general and senior recitals in order to exhibit their musical abilites for the public. This fall, Mary Ellen Vehlow, soprano; Art Ellersieck, tenor, and Howard Hess, bass, gave a combined general recital for the public. Again in the spring, another recital featured Marjorie Klassy, soprano, and Ron Hunter, clarinetist. One of the most outstanding recitals this year was performed by Barbara Ehekircher. This being her senior year, at Elmhurst College, she performed her senior recital in the college chapel for the public. There are many more hours of individual practice and rehearsals with accompanists. As mastery is reached and public performance is warrented, laurels are certainly deserving to those individuals seeking to develop their musical abilities for themselves and for enjoyment by the public. Art Ellersieck, a junior, presented a recital in the fall. A pretheological student and phil- osophy major, Art previously was a member of the Chapel Choir but has sought to con- tinue with his voice training under Mr. David Austin. Another recital performance was ren- dered by Hoivard Hess, a junior. Howie, as he is more popularly called, is also a member of the Men ' s Glee Club and sings with the quartet of that organi- zation. 30 All day long the music school is filled with students in lessons and practice. Bill Hahn is vocalizing during a lesson ivith Mr. Austin in his studio. ...... ...... One of the highlights of the music program this year was the senior re- cital of Barbara Ehekircher from Den- ver, Colorado. Barb is caught here in one of her many practice periods throughout the school year. A college community can be stagnant as well as any other community. The solution is simple and enriching: spirit, participation, and organization. Our campus is the scene of typical college life. Here the interests of all are considered and catered to. We, the inhabitants, needed only to step forward into the realm of activity. We worked with others with one purpose in mind — giving to Elmhurst that which we best could give, and receiving in return a realization that our college home was a dynamic place in which to live. We offered parts of our- selves and thrived in this giving. Whether we lifted our voices in song, created overt signs of thought in literary and verbal expression, filled the air with music, created moods through drama, or offered our- selves, services and talents to other fields, we were contributing to the betterment of our school. And by this producing, we were helping ourselves too; for our college life was a testing ground for our productive abilities and our capacity to receive and accept responsibility. With this realization came will- ingness to participate, and with this willingness, came great satisfaction. We produced — -there was always a reward. We Produced Council y-, Row Is A. Michael, R.

Democracy extends itself in elections when students select representatives. Today everyone in the world screams for his rights and privileges under the Constitution, and on Elm- hurst College campus it is no different. In the consti- tution of the student government, organizations and rules are explained to allow a clear picture of the duties and privileges of the students as individuals and as members in a campus organization. By allow- ing for a representative government patterned much after our United States government, the students are allowed to govern themselves in accordance with other college policies. Elections are held for student union officers, cabinet, and senate; then other offices are filled with the approval of the Cabinet. A free student union hour is available to all students every Wednesday during which Senate meetings are held or any other meeting pertinent to deciding major campus issues. In this manner, students are given the opportunity to democratically govern themselves. Student Cabinet Row 1 : A. Krom.holz, J. Herter, K. Mulholland, F. Lange, J. Vol gate, W. Mueller; Row 2: L.

The Chapel Choir Destination Denver — This was the motto of the Elmhurst Chapel Choir this year as it commenced its annual spring tour. The Choir, in going to Denver, traveled farther West than any other Elmhurst musi- cal group in the history of the college. Singing several concerts en route to Denver, the well-trained choir spent a very successful and, incidentally, a very stren- uous ten days. Chapel Choir is under the able di- rection of Mr. Howard Krueger, who not only waves the baton, but also does some of the arranging and composing of the music which the Choir sings. Striv- ing to present the best concerts of which the choral group is capable, Mr. Krueger indefatigably works the Choir with perfection as the goal. The group practices three days a week to prepare, not only for spring tour, but also for Christmas concerts, spring concerts, and the choral music for some of the weekly Chapel Assemblies. Although most of the concerts Chapel Choir Row 1: C. Kosanke, ]. Berger, B. Ehekircher. B. Sbingu, S. Bishop. M. Kieffmemn, D. Fitch. J. Campanella; Roiv 2: L. Burrichter, P. Kroll, J. Panke. M.

A program of a Chapel Choir concert might include Negro spirituals, traditional Christmas Carols from various countries, and sacred works by great composers such as Bach and Haydn. On occasion, secular music such as " Polly-Wolly-Doodle " might be included in the presentation. Choir is a four part chorus consisting of approximately fifty voices. Mem- bers are selected after competitive try-outs, and each member is expected to memorize all music which is to be sung during the year. The group always wears gray robes with royal blue robots and stoles when singing publically. To summarize, let it be said that the Chapel Choir does it best to glorify God through its music and to be a good representative of the col- lege of which they are a part — Elmhurst College.

Director David Austin managed to keep things under control with his " iron hand " although he did have some trouble bringing pianist Burt Adams down from " Cloud 9- " This job of spreading college relations may be a tough grind, but the resultant feeling of satisfaction makes these endeavors well worth while. The successful mixture of work and recreation found in the Glee Club af- forded many benefits for their audiences and for each member of the club. With this year ' s tour com- pleted, plans must now be directed toward next year, and so the unending cycle goes on. Wekend and evening concerts fill the Glee Club ' s busy schedule throughout the year in local churches. Polyhymnia becomes " singer of hymns This year the Polyhymnia group was composed of twenty-seven girls, the smallest and only all girl musical chorus on campus. Every week the girls practiced four and a half hours as a group besides putting in many hours in sectional and quartet prac- tice. Thus, at the time of performance, they would appear at their best under the able and professional direction of Mrs. Viola Repp. The name of the or- ganization is derived from two Greek words mean- ing " singer of hymns. " This gives a clue to the purpose of Poly, as it is better known on campus. Poly strives to bring to its audiences the best in sacred and secular music. During the course of a school year, Poly girls are kept busy in constant preparation of new and more music for their frequent weekend and evening con- certs in nearby churches and for morning chapel services. This fall Poly sang like " angels in heaven " as they participated in the Homecoming show in October. On tour this year, Poly circled the mid- western states of Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas and stopped for the weekend in St. Louis for a series of concerts. Included in Poly ' s busy schedule this year was a Christmas concert during chapel hour. At this time the girls sang Britten ' s A Ceremony Of Carols with harp accompaniment. Row 1: ]. Frobel, J.

Because of the lack of participation this year, the Elmhurst College Band has been reduced to the function of a pep band. The twelve to fifteen mem- ber band performed faithfully at all the home foot- ball and basketball games. Thus, it provided that ex- tra spark of " school spirit " so appreciated by the team and the fans alike. In addition to playing for football and basketball games, the band took part in a rousing pep assembly. During the first semester the band sought to practice every Wednesday night. After Christmas the practices discontinued due to final examinations and Wednesday night basketball games. Through out the year, the band was directed by Mr. Robert E. Restemeyer, who also played the baritone. Mostly marches and swing tunes were played by the band, and this " peppy " music was brought to a close with the end of the basketball season. It is truely unfortunate that more students can ' t take the opportunity to join with these faith- ful members and their pleasant music to expand the band for performances. Caught in the act of performance at one of the basketball games, the Elmhurst College Band goes on unaware as they play a peppy march during half time. ■ Our college news is printed weekly. The challenging job of informing interested Elm- hurst College friends about past, current, and future items of interest is left up to the Elmbark staff. This group of interested workers always seems to find time each week to put out a newspaper that will keep the public informed of college-connected ac- tivities. With each new paper, the staff finds them- selves assigned specific jobs, and then thei ' r work be- gins. Reports, interviews, and a lot of leg work pro- duce the necessary copy for the editor ' s desk. After any necessary additions or corrections, the paper is thoroughly laid out for the printer. This " dummy " includes previews of future campus affairs, recog- nition due any group or individual for some activity, the sport ' s page, personal interviews, reviews, special columns, informal campus chatter, and advertising. The job is not ended yet, for there is always proof reading, stuffing the student ' s mailboxes in Old Main, and the mailing of the papers to subscribers. Say it ' s a big job? You bet! As one issue is completed they begin again with another smile on a new issue to inform the campus of college news. JP l l ' tJ 1 y Raw 1: M. Heina, J. Campanella, J. Schlueter, G. Coleman, J.

Years summary is published annually Yes, Marlene, which one shall ive use? Every publication has its beginning point, and this 1959 Elms began to take shape over a year ago as the new editor and her staff heads met to plan out a theme and layout for the book. Throughout the sum- mer work was carried on so that when school started in the fall, work could fall into line as scheduled. But as always, plans became disrupted through activities, organizations, and campus personnel changing. Never- theless, the staff continued working to put out an annual which would contain memories of all phases of college life. To compile the material for this volume, pictures had to be taken and often retakes so that only the best material could be used. Social events had to be covered so that campus activities could later be re- membered. Advertisements had to be sold to help defray the expense of the yearbook. The cover had to be designed and approved. Copy had to be written so that the book could be tied together to express its purpose. Printing deadlines had to be met, then came the job of proofreading. This seemingly endless job finally reached its conclusion as the staff opened the packing cases, examined the ' 59 Elms, and handed them out to the eagerly awaiting student body. Row 1: M..

WRSE, the student operated radio station on campus found itself faced this year with some age old prob- lems they hoped to solve. Trying to get shows on the air and keep them on, and an abundance of visitors that side-tracked the performers, resulted in a com- plete change in the format broadcasted on campus. At one time, the station produced programs of a disk jockey nature. Now, when one dials 1210 or 1290 on the radio in the dorm, he gets an FM type format of " no chatter — just platter. " This style elimi- nates many of the producing and engineering prob- lems, and has resulted in a more satisfactory schedule for the WRSE station and has achieved greater in- terest among the listeners. The station still broad- casts many of the athletic events away from campus, programs put on by the Elmhurst Radio Players, and daily devotions. " And WRSE presents Row 1- J Polich B. Mahler. S.

This day, called Honor ' s Day, traditionally falls on Mother ' s Day so that com- bined tribute can be payed to both students and their mothers. At this time, scholarships for the coming year and other awards are officially presented to students on the basis of last year ' s achievements. Awards are given in speech for the Shick Speech Con- test and in artiste ability for the Short Story and Poetry Contest held each year. Full tuition scholar- ships are awarded to the highest ranking freshmen, sophomore, and junior. Fifteen college scholarships are presented to incoming freshmen for their use when they first enroll the next fall. Other scholar- ships are awarded by other organizations to Elm- hurst college students deserving recognition of their scholarstic ability. In this manner, the college seeks to recognize and encourage scholastic achievement. Sonja Conrad fane Berger Anne Menzel Ruth Schoening Honors were awarded to many students for scholastic achievement. Above are pictured some of the girls receiving speech awards and scholarships. At the left are pictured five more winners who ivere recognized on Honor ' s Day: Judy Gass, Joyce Chum, Eva Augustine. Wilma Reimvald.

This year the American College ' s and Universities Who ' s Who, will have enrolled the names of six seniors from Elmhurst College. These six, John Baum- gartner, Robert Dunn, Judith Folgate, John Mod- schiedler, Kenneth Mulholland, and Peter Schmie- chen were elected by two committees, working in- dependently so that there would be as an objective vote as possible. The two committee heads this year were both juniors, chosen by the Senate the previous year. The official aims of the Who ' s Who are that the candidates should be outstanding in four areas to qualify. Scholarship, character, leadership, and ser- vice are the four stipulated areas. The committees did an excellent job in their selection, and congratu- lations are in store to the six seniors whose names will be engraved in Who ' s Who. Though the committee selecting the seniors for nomination to Who ' s Who remains a secret, the committee was headed by Ethel Hoffeins and Norman Weber. Our Christian college is truly a miniature of Chris- tian life — and this temporary environment, these four years, was a background for Christian living. This part of our lives cannot be explained or de- fined generally, for it was ours alone and had a special meaning to each of us. All that can be ex- plained is the offer which Elmhurst made. It was neither demanding nor compulsory, but is was al- ways present. It was the chance for spiritual nourish- ment. Our spiritual life, like our physical life was de- termined by our choices — and our choices in turn, by our society. Yet, religion at Elmhurst remained personal — open, inviting, powerful, but personal. Because Elmhurst, as a Christian college, encourages a strong worshipping community, it organized and presented to us a full program of religious activities. Inspiring evening vespers and morning ch apel, to- gether with the annual stimulating Religion-In-Life week and candlelight service, formed every oppor- tunity for finding peace. We worshipped — there was always a light. We Worshiped . . . Campus sees " Religion Through The Arts Religion-in-Life Week is a week of special efforts and renewed attention to the matter of our Chris- tian purposes. A committee of Richard McCracken, Carol Bounds, Ruth Schoening, Jon Siggeman, and Rev. J. W. Figgenbaum planned an inspirational week around the theme " Religion Through The Arts " for this year ' s program. As a stimulation for discussion, the committee choose to have the college theatre produce T. S. Elliot ' s The Cocktail Party. The plot involved a psy- chiatrist ' s efforts to help an unfaithful married couple reach reconciliation, and a young woman reach a higher destiny for her life. The task is assimilated by two seemingly frivilous socalites. The theme of the drama centers on the realization that one must either become a martyr or settle for the second best things in life. Also cooperating with the committee were W. R. S. E. and the Elmhurst Radio Players. Mac Leish ' s " Prologue to J. B., " a modern morality play based on the book of Job, was dramatized by members of the faculty as well as the members of ERPS one evening. The regular Tuesday assembly and Thursday chapel service provided further food for thought on the " Religion Through the Arts " theme. George Mat- thews, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, offered the great truths of the Christian faith through his " Sermon in Song. " Expressing religion in literature was explored by Dr. Carl Olsson of North Park College and Seminary. Both speakers made valuable insights possible in the assembly and chapel programs. In classes Rev. Robert T. Fauth and Dr. Lionel A. Whiston replaced some of the regular professors in attempts to relate religion to the subject matter of the course. Paricular classes open to visitors included courses in sociology, philosophy, English, art, music, speech, and religion. Both speakers demonstrated evidence of their qualifications in religion. Rev. Fauth is pastor of Peace Memoral Church in Chi- cago and chairman of the Board of Christian Edu- cation for the Evangelical and Reformed Church. Dr. Whiston is a professor of Biblical Studies at Eden Theological Seminary. Also scattered through- out the week were student informals and panel dis- cussions. The topics were posted in advance so in- terested students might attend such interesting in- formals as " Religion and Jazz " and " What Consti- tutes Religious Literature. " Each dormitory participated in the program with a series of dorm devotions. Hymns, scriptures and poetic meditations emphasized living together in a Christian community. With the cooperation of the faculty, student body, college theatre, W. R. S. E., Elm Bark, and music groups, religion became more enlightened and a more vital part of our lives. During the iveek of March 8 to 12, the college fol- lowed the busy schedule of activities relating music, art, and drama to religion as had been proposed and exhibited on the poster errected on the front end of campus. Reverend F. I. Rickoff, pastor of the Evangelical United Brethern Church in Elmhurst, presented the evening vesper service on Monday, as an extension of college relations into the community. Committee responsible for the success of Religion-in-Life Week was headed by Gus Kuether, Ruth Schoening, Carol Bounds, and Rich McCracken. Dr. Lionel Whitson of Eden Seminary was one of the leading speakers of the week in classes, panel discussions, and bull sessions in the dorms. As an introduction to the week, the College Theatre presented The Cocktail Party, " a play designed to portray the problems of modern man and his modern world. Three times a week, the Religious Life Committee sponsors evening vespers in the college chapel for inspiration and introspection. Both professors and senior students are welcomed as speakers. Twice a week Chapel assemblies are held in the gymnasium for the students so that they may further broaden their cultural horizons. Different guest spea- kers on the arts and social sciences fill these hours with rewarding experiences to meet everyone ' s tastes. 54 Choral Union performs for public. Fee those students who feel that they don ' t have enough time to give to one of the choirs but have a sincere desire to sing some of the best in sacred music, an organization is offered to fulfill this de- sire for them. This group is the Choral Union. These students and faculty members practice one night a week for two hours under the capable di- rection of Mr. T. Howard Krueger. During the year, two concerts are presented for the public. On the last night before Christmas vacation, the Choral Union with the support of the Men ' s Glee Club, Polyhymnia, and Chapel Choir presented " The Mys- tery of Bethlehem " by H. Willan and " Magnificat No. 2 " by P. M. Praetorius. Again in the spring the Choral Union presented another candle light pro- gram at which they sang Mozart ' s " Requiem Mass. " In the college gymnasium, the Choral Union presented the annual Christmas candle light concert under the direction of Mr. Krueger. The retreat at Lake Geneva between semester is just one of the many ac- tivities sponsored by SCA. One religious phase of the retreat was expressed in Holy Communion.

Athletic activi- ties, which were all voluntary, gave an increased depth to our college years. Conditioning the body is as important as conditioning the mind, so long hours, days, and weeks of training and practice saw the Jays achieve a fine record of athletic achieve- ments for the school. However, the demands of scholarship and academic standing were constantly kept paramount in the minds of both the players and coaches, so the record in sports was made by the knowledge that success in the field was co-equal to success in the classroom. In an athletic program which completely spanned the school year, with football and cross country in the fall to baseball and golf in the spring, the school provided an oppor- tunity for every student to participate in the physical strengthening of his body and mind. Being on a team was an important experience which helped us to grow in reliability. Being a member of the cheer- ing crowd helped us to develop respect and school spirit. Being engaged in intramurals helped us to grow in cooperation. We played — there was always sportsmanship. We Played . . . Various seasonal sports give Elmhurst Varsity Football Squad Row 1: Coach H.

The 1958 football season at Elmhurst began very much like any other previous season at the college except for the fact that many of the team were new to the sport this year. There was he usual pre-season training before school started, the exercises and cal- isthenics, and rehearsals of future plays, and during this time the fellows learned to work together as a team before they had their first match wih Concordia. Throughout this training and the season, they achieved a fine spirit of sportsmanship that could be matched by few other teams. In spite of the no-win tabulation recorded at the end of the football season, our Blue Jays did not once loose their courage or sportsmanship in playing on the field. They continued to play each game for itself and for the student body they represented. Each and every fellow on the team and their coach, Harold Owen, deserve a pat on the back for their work this season, because one should always remember it is not just an impressive record of scores that counts, but it is the fine attitude of sportsmanship which the team displays that is just as important. Hey! You missed the ball! mm Row 1: A. Sumter, G. Seiffert, R. Ruse, L. Crawford; Row 2: Coach Langborst, H. Parker, J. Boch, H. Riekhof, manager, C. Mory. Cross Country men run the ebalk line. Almost any afternoon during the school week this fall, one could usually catch a fleeting glimpse of the cross country team as they practiced around the campus. Running the chalk line, they would keep in trim for the seasonal meets. Under captain and first man Arnold Sumter, the Elmhurst Harriers had a good fall season. Unfortunately they lost their first meet against Carrol by fourteen points. But improve- ment was fast in coming as the Harriers placed sec- ond in a meet against Milliken and Wright. Promise was also shown when they met the University of Wis- consin at Milwaukee. Elmhurst Grapplers show improvement The wrestling team showed a remarkable season this year when totals at the end of the season reported a total of 136 points for Elmhurst against 200 points total for their season ' s oppinents. The Grapplers have also received an invitation to the NCWA held during the spring vacation in Iowa this year. Unfortunately the team is losing seniors Herb Bussa, Lee Hedge, and Ken Mulholland, but the remain- der of the team holds much promise for the next year. In an exibition match, freshman Paul Rucker proved to be a great asset to Elmhurst, as he has shown remarkable ability against many more ex- perienced men. Lee Hedge now holds the Elmhurst crown of most straight wins with four. He also tied the record set by Ken Mulholland, captain, for the most wins for a season. Hopes are high for a tremen- dous season next year with the remaining new talent brought in by this year ' s freshmen. Referee counts, " 1, 2 ... 1 , 2, 3. " Row 1: R. Hastedt, W. Ball, H. Bussa, L.

With the 1959 basketball season just brought to a close, tabs show a record of five wins and nine losses in the Illinois College Conference and Elm- hurst is tied for fifth place with Carroll College. The " Schousenmen, " having had a late start this season, didn ' t quite meet the pre-season expecta- tions nor were they up to par with the records of previous seasons. The closest they came to their last year ' s record of 9-5 was before the three last con- ference games with Milliken, Wheaton, and Illinois Wesleyan; all three of these games were lost, however. The first showing of the Jays this season was an un- easy one-point win over Whitewater. After a nine- teen point victory over Concordia on our home court, the Elmhurst Jays exhibited their winning ability. The best game of the season was played against the Illinois College Conference Champs, Wheaton, though this game was lost by ten points after a rousing game. A three game winning streak over Lake Forest, Milliken, and Concordia was broken when the Jays bowed to Carroll ' s win by one point on the Waukesha court. The Jays dropped the next game to North Central 58-74. Playing back on their home court, the Jays whipped Augustana and then evened the record with Carroll by beating them by six points. The Cagers took loses then from Lake Forest, Milliken, Wheaton, and Illinois Wesleyan. Row 1: A. Bikema, frosh manager; J. Herter, W. Lueier, B. Smith, J. Dancy, R. Luzietti, H. Parker, T.

An analysis of this year ' s team reveals Joel Herter as the Blue Jays bucketman and senior squad cap- tain. Joel proved his ability many times, one noted in particular when he set a furious pace for his team against Lake Forest by coming up with a three point lead from an eight point deficit. Tipping the ball from the center spot for our hardwood heroes this year is six foot six inch Ken Saari. Ken ' s most valuable aspect for the team this year has been his rebounding ability. Freshman Bob Smith has shown great ability on the varsity squad. He is always scor- ing high, and will be of great value to the team next year. Elmhurst scores against Milliken. One of the leading scorers on the Elmhurst Team was Dick Luzietta, guard. His addition to the team has won quite a number of games from the Blue Jays, and he has proven his sportsmanship as a fine con- tribution to the squad. Jim Dancy, a sophomore forward, is another high scorer. In the Milliken game where the Blue Jays won 82-76, Jim blocked shots and rebounded with vengence, helping to win from a one point lead at half time to a seven point lead with a minute to go. Of course Coach Schousen de- serves due credit for the advice and training he has given the team. It was under his able guidance that the Blue Jays finished a well-to-do record. 68 mm Pole vaulting record goes to Eastern Michigan. The 24th Elmhurst Intercollegiate Invitational Meet On Saturday, May 10, 1958, the 24th Elmhurst In- tercollegiate Invitational Track and Field Meet was opened by President Stanger. As in the past the teams were divided into divisions A and B according to enrollment over or under 1200 students. Through the efforts of Oliver M. Langhorst, the EII has been car- ried on since 1933. The EII produced three new records, saw one tied and crowned two new divisional champs. Eastern Michigan received honors in Divison A as they scored 65 points to 37 1 2 for runner up Central Michigan. In Division B the winning team was Dubuque which defeated defender Beloit 41 3 5 to 40 points. Eastern Michigan extended the old record in the shot put with a heave of 50 ' 5 3 4 " . Illinois Normal established a new record in the javelin throw with 202 ' 8 1 4 " . Eastern Michigan again scored in the pole vault with a jump of 13 ' 8 7 8 " . In winning the divisional title, Eastern Michigan took first in the mile, 400 yard run, shot put, 120 yard high hurdles, pole vault, 220 yard dash, and the 220 yard low hurdles. The Ell court reigned at the track meet; Marlene Haupt- man, Betty Almasy. Carol Albrecht (queen). Sue Matesz, and ]ane Klopfer. Captain Sandra Haese leads varsity cheerleading squad in yell at basket- ball game. Weekly practice keeps the girls in condition for the strenuous work necessitated by this leadership. Varsity Cheerleaders Not only during basketball season, but football season as well, the cheerleaders attend the games to direct the Elmhurst crowd in rooting on the team. Here, the cheerleaders in action root the Blue Jays and their fans on. Finishing their cheer the girls run back to the stands to join the crowd again in watching the fays in action. This year ' s squad had Penny Armitage, Bev Braiden, Barb Collins, Sue Fox. Susan Krause, Nancy Meyer, Joan Stout, and Liz Van Meer to lead the cheers for Elmhurst. 72 Girls make mad scramble for ball. It ' s a toss up in girls ' basketball. Intramurals Fellows watch ball sail in after one-handed toss. At the other end of the court the guys aren ' t quite as successful with their baskets. The time always comes when man, restless, active man, becomes weary and wants to leave the strain of work and problems behind. And so the Elmhurst student grew weary, and welcomed the hours of re- laxation when laughter came easily and entertain- ment satisfied all social needs. Although Elmhurst is not famous for its social life, it fulfilled that de- sire which possesses everyone — the desire for variety, fun, excitement, and fantasy. It included, too, the interests of everyone — planning its activities to please individual tastes. The adventurous as well as the party-going spirit was satisfied from the first antics of Freshman Week, to the sentimental mo- ments of formal dances, to the warmth of the holi- day celebrations. So, although our school may not dote on the spectacular, it never slighted anyone, but offered each and all the wholesome activity we needed to make our college days socially rounded. This was a great benefit from a school as highly rated as Elmhurst — the offering of a really " happy " medium. We relaxed — there was always contentment. Freshman frolic September 7, 1958, ushered in a new group of out- standing freshmen for Elmhurst College. Coming from all parts of the country, they were greeted by the Freshmen Week Committee and shown to their assigned residence halls. How they ever found time to unpack and get settled is anyone ' s guess. There wasn ' t a free minute in the schedule with all the activities planned to initiate the new freshmen into their new life on campus. Orientation programs on college life, classes, and the library filled the morning and afternoon hours when the frosh weren ' t meet- ing with their advisors. Pens ran out of ink from all the cards that had to be written for the office, advisors and faculty. Registering for classes in Leh- mann Hall was a mad rush as the freshmen scrambled to sign up for English, science, religion and the fine arts. All join hands and circle left. The torch of knowledge blazes fort. returns to campus. But during the evening hours, there were many op- portunities to relax and have fun at one ' s leisure. Picnics, square dances, a " track meet " in the gym, a reception at the President ' s home, informal Firesides meetings at the homes of faculty members all com- bined to make the week full of memorable activities. Unfortunately the frosh lost the annual tug-of-war with the Freshmen Week Committee and the only reward they had was a nice cold mud bath. The week passed quickly and it wasn ' t long before the fresh- men, now feeling quite at home on campus, were invaded by upperclassmen. It was then a matter of days until all four classes mingled as one, and a matter of weeks before the freshmen could shed their beanies and be physically accepted on campus as the Class of 1962. Save room for some desert. r Hurry up there gal. Mud Bath anyone? The girls experiment at tug-of-war. Campus relaxes with dances and shows Whether it was a class show, a dance, or a seasonal party, the campus turned out for the weekend ac- tivities with great expectations of enjoyment. Rarely could one be disappointed, for each function that was sponsored held an original aspect that entertained those present. The students themselves worked out plans and productions to catch the interests of all. There were western square dances, swim parties, hayrides, soc-hops, and the Sadie Hawkins dance. Semi-formals and dress dances often gave couples the opportunity to step and swing to the music of the " Lamplighters, " a band originating on the Elm- hurst College campus. There were Christmas parties and an evening of caroling, a Valentine Party, a Mardi Gras and a circus, sponsored movies, and even a crazy auction and ice cream party. What more could a student ask for in order to have weekends throughout the year that were entertaining, relaxing, and appealing to our every desire for enjoyment. The Sophomore Semi-formal, " Early Autumn, " gave the fall season a dreamy dance of soft lights and party dresses- all to a setting of falling leaves of autumn colors. " Sadie Hawkins " gave the campus a turn-about dance, and everyone came dressed in L ' il Abner or Daisy Mae style. An A rabian atmosphere created the theme and setting for the sophomore show " Rapsody In Reverie. " These two " cats " were part of a vision of the prince. The junior class highlighted one of the first Saturday nights in September with a dance, " The Honeymoon Is Over. " During the evening Howard Parker offered a few pantomines to records. November saw the freshmen dance " Stardust Serenade " in shades of silver, white, and black. Between numbers by the Lamplighters, the class featured a dance line as one of the stage numbers. 80 Social life added a new function to the calendar this year by sponsoring a Swim Party at the college pool, and then fol- lowing up the refreshing dip luith the movie " The Shrike " , shown in the col- lege gymnasium. February 14 created a perfect evening for a Valentine Party in Dinkmeyer Hall. " Run-Away Hearts " became the theme for an old-fashioned, homey-type party sponsored by the Elms staff. Jean Bergner and Carol Haas ivere two of the many girls who decorated the rec- reation room with hearts and cupids. " Elmguard - 58 " put Homecoming 1958 was highlighted by many new ideas and treasured moments which will long be re- membered by the alumni as well as the students of Elmhurst Colleg e. This year the weekend theme for Homecoming was " outer spance. " To carry out this idea, students and faculty worked many long hours to prepare appropriate campus decorations. Flying saucers and space control points suddenly appeared on campus. Brillant red arches decorated the entrance and drive. A shining silver rocket was erected in the sunken gardens. Following the registration and reception of the re- turning alumni and guests Friday afternoon, the eve- ning program began with a successful launching of the " Elmguard " rocket, putting the breath-taken audience " on the moon. " Following the launching, a show of music and skits developed the moon set- ting into a realization that the Elmhurst College cam- pus is the best place yet, whether one be on the earth or the moon.

Our Blue Jays met North Central College on the field and were cheered on by students and alumni alike. Earlier that morning the alumni tried to match football tactics with the college boys. In spite of any dejected spirits over losses in football, spirits remained high and all eyes turned towards the big dance that evening. Stars and shades of blue and silver decorated the gym for " Moonglow, " the dance theme. The Bill Russell Orchestra highlighted the evening with music to which the Elmhurst crowd could dance. The Homecoming queen and her court received each guest at the door and later were of- ficially presented and danced to the song " Moonglow. " Sunday ushered in the last day of the festive week- end. Neighboring churches opened their doors to visiting friends. The dorms held open house so the alumni could renew and recall their college homes from years past. To bring this Homecoming weekend to a close, the traditional ceremonies of extinguish- ing the brazier in the sunken gardens were admin- istered by President Stanger later that afternoon, and soon after all departed until another Homecoming celebraion. Homecoming court dances to " Moonglow " at the Saturday evening dance. Launching of the Elm guard rocket began the weekend ' s evening program. 85 College The theatre ' s first production was Thur- her and Nugent ' s THE MALE ANI- MAL. A large university campus at homecoming provided the setting for the three act comedy. Lead roles were played by Earle Potts, an English pro- fessor; Lenore Strand, his wife; and Frank Goodlake, the " old timer " All American. Donna Fitch, Bruce Carlson, Bill Rumpf, Glen Schwinkendorf, Elaine Allrich, John Szilvasy, Zona Bowers, and Carol Stein completed the play ' s " college family. " Shakespear ' s ROMEO and JULIET, with Patricia Holmes and Charles Mory in the title roles, was the second pre- sentation. Supporting roles were played by Jean Rolf}. Dr. Low, Mr. Baumeister, William Panici, Gretchen Scherzer, John Bock, William Vogel, Glen Schwinkendorf, Norm Weber, and Bruce Carlson. The classic love tragedy was staged on a multi-level platform against a single set which became a street, a friar ' s cell, the Capulet ' s tomb, and Juliets balcony. In co-sponsorship with the Religion-in- Life Week Committee, T. S. Elliots THE COCKTAIL PARTY was pre- sented arena style by the theatre. The party stimulated discussion on subjects of original sin, ones aloneness, and re- ligious drama. Players included Patricia Holmes as Celia, John McCleary as Edward, Jean Rolff as Lavinia, William Vogel as the psychiatrist, Myrtle Ketel as Julia, Robert Cetera as Peter, and John Lindner as Alex. 86 Theatre Prior to any public performance by the College Theatre, many hours of prep- aration are called for in the scene shop beloiv South Hall. Here John Lindner is putting in a few late hours to make scenery and stage settings. The night of performance becomes a big success when not only the actor ' s portrayal becomes significantly real, but also when an audience is present and receptive. This latter factor requires publicity, ticket distribution, and house management. Every College Theatre production at Elmhurst features the Elmhurst Com- munity Theatre Orchestra at nightly performances under the direction of Mr. Fred Krueger prior to the first cur- tain and again betiveen acts at in- termissions. 87 Christmas heralds festive activities Christmas goodies make tasty refreshments. Um, does that look good. The lodge at Williams Bay Camp held classes, discussions, and evening programs. Never a dull moment when you are surrounded by snow. Seminars unite the group in discussion on " The College and Its Community. Escape to Lake Geneva for the annual retreat. Annual retreat held at Lake Geneva. Women ' s Union holds " sister " picnic, The Women ' s Union, the all-inclusive Elmhurst Col- lege " sorority, " conducted all its usual activities this year with a new festive activity added at Christmas time. The Big and Little Sister Picnic held early in rhe fall allowed the upperclassmen and freshmen to be- come better acquainted. Late one afternoon the girls gathered in Wilder Park for a weiner roast, recreation, and entertainment planned by the officers. This fea- ture of the Women ' s Union program provides friendly guidance to the new coeds of the college community. Bachelor ' s Holiday offered campus life a unique twist when the fellows were treated like kings. The girls " worked themselves to death " by opening doors, putting on fellows ' coats, carrying trays and doing other little complimentary tasks bestowed traditionally upon the girls. The Women ' s Union turn-about dance climaxed Bachelor ' s Holiday Saturday evening. The theme of the dance was " Do Fung Chu, " or Oriental Women ' s Union officers Karen Haub. Barbara Ehekircher, Anne Menzel, and Dorothy Gewecke are installed at the Saturday morning breakfast. Clowns watch the shoiv in the big top, too. Is this my prize? 90 Co-ed Dance, Christmas tea, circus Whispers to those who have no knowledge of Chi- nese. As the name suggest, the decorations were of an Oriental nature. An outstanding feature of the decorations was the bubbling fountain in the midst of a rock garden. In December Dr. Wellington, sponsor of the Wo- men ' s Union, served at the Christmas Tea and on Sunday afternoon. All the co-eds and the wives of the faculty members were invited to participate in his new WU activity, spending as afternoon relax- ing and enjoying themselves in a more sophisticated manner. The annual circus provided entertainment both for the children from the Homes and for the students who became their " parents " for the evening of March 14. The booths of games and concessions, the big " ring " upstairs, and all the clowns and entertainers delighted each individual attending and participating. An afternoon tea in Dinkmeyer Hall catches Dr. Wellington serving to the co-eds and other guests during campus Christmas affairs. Women ' s Union president Barbara Ehekircher looks for guilty victim who evaded her responsibility during Bache- lor ' s Holiday. " Oriental Whispers " kept most of the guilty names hidden Saturday night at the dance. ' Rapsody In Red " enchants 1958 Prom. The Red Lacquer Room of the Palmer House created a lavish setting for the 1958 Prom, " Rapsody In Red. " Crystal chandileirs and the red decor of the ballroom added to the feeling of dreamy enchantment. Bobby Christian ' s Band helped capture the hearts of all as they filled the room with the rich strains of new and familiar songs in order that couples might dance the night away. Alternating with the band numbers, a young vocalist sang requested numbers, and the couples took a breather from whirling on the floor for some old fashined group singing. Queen Marlene Hauptman and her court members Marilyn Cantrell and Eileen Krakora were presented and honored with a speciality number. The evening proved a successful conclusion to a full season of college activities. Marlene Hauptman reigns as queen of the 1958 Junior Prom. Queen Marlene Hauptman and attendants Eileen Krakora and Marilyn Cantrell pose with their escorts for a quick picture. 92 Togetherness — a word that describes precisely the mode of small-college living — was especially present on our campus. Of course, there were smaller groups within our whole family, but the closeness of these interest groups was necessary for a well-rounded whole. And even these groups, separated in a way by different callings, were still basically connected in the fellowship of living together. Everyone dreads loneliness and fears the thought of not belonging. So here at Elmhurst we continued, even more emphati- cally, to get to know people, to practice the social exploration so necessary to the attainment of to- getherness. It all began with a casual, " Hi, my name ' s . . . , what ' s yours? " , and almost always flourished into a warm relationship. This relationship continued in our day to day living, in our dorms and all places of informal gatherings. Molded by these intimate contacts with our college staff as well as our fellow students, we emerged from Elmhurst filled with the true meaning of being a part of a whole. We lived — there was always togetherness. We Barracks Council Row 1: R. Merkle, W. Dittrich, M. Foerste, C. Holtz; Roiv 2: P. Marxen. F. Heimerdinger, B. Angi. Dinkmeyer Council Roiv 1 : Airs.

In addition the usual three meals a day planned by Mrs. Albright the dietician, and pre- pared by the cooks, several special meals were served. These meals included the Freshmen and Christmas banquets, each with appropriate decorations, dishes, and atmosphere. Occasionally music added a festive touch to meal time through out the year. Commons was also the stage on which skits were performed. Those during freshmen hazing bring back many a happy memory as freshmen and sophomores con- tinued to razz the other. School spirit was further aroused by the singing of the Fight Song before ath- letic games. One can never forget the eternal waiting in line, the swiping of the trays and the silverware, and the morning a little Austin was found in the midst of the tables and chairs. The Commons crew wasn ' t far behind in their antics in the kitchen as they continued to put vinegar in the grape juice, catsup in the whipped cream, and to hang miseltoe over the doorways. Yes, Commons was the ideal place to meet and eat. The annual Christmas dinner in the cafeteria was held in a setting of soft music and candle light while the students and guests feasted on eggnog, turkey and all the trimmings and an array of salads and garnishes served from a center table. For every meal in commons, there must be pre- People have eaten and, more people are to be served, parations by the dietician, cooks, and student Eric Haegen puts through a load of dishes in the workers.

Promptly they prepared to initiate these " green Frosh " into the campus life of the college. By inflicting jokes, tricks, memory feats, and obli- gations upon the freshmen, the upperclassmen seemed to think they were pretty special. Beanie checks were initiated, memorizing campus rules and statistics was demanded, extra favors were requested, and an unfortunate mud bath was endured as the frosh were defeated in a tug of war with the sophs. But after a series of weeks the freshmen wre able to prove their worth and they gained their freedom and recognition at Homecoming. Having endured the storm of the upperclassmen, the fresh- men were able to apply themselves to their classes and studies, even finding enough time to participate in campus groups and activities. Working together, they produced a marvelous class dance, " Stardust Serenade, " in November and a variety show in May. Our hats are off to the fresh- men for their admirable work and high spirits in facing their first year at Elmhurst College. 7?. Logan, president; W Cracken, vice-president. Kish, sec.-treas.; W.

Sophomores claim two down and two to go as year ends. For the Sophs it is two down and two to go. Half of the battle is won. Now, we face the problem of selecting our major field for our last years. This year we had the upper hand during freshman week; and it was the class of " 61 " who won the tug of war. It was the Sophs who were the raiders of the frosh rooms in the wee hours of the morning, and the beanie checkers at Commons. Of course, there were the traditional Sophomore Class social events, The very unusual Sophomore Class show " Rhapsody in Reverie " was an extraordinary success. Who will ever forget our Semi-formal dance " Autumn Leaves " in the rustic atmosphere of green, orange, red, and golden decorations which trans- formed the college gymnasium into an Autumn paradise. The academic aspect of college was harder this year; however, we still had an excellent showing on the semester ' s honor roll. I am sure no one will forget the crime of all the midnight oil we burned as punishment for allowing the homework to slip by. Yes, our Sophomore year was a very happy, and memorable year.

Junior Class faces serious decisions and numerous papers Upon returning to the campus to find themselves as stu- dents in their third year at college, the juniors found some weighty decisions upon their shoulders. Now they had to decide definitely into which field they wanted to enter, in what subject they wanted to major. Whether classes were in education, business, history, advanced English, or phil- osophy, each student was thrust into an academic atmos- phere as their classes became centered in the field which they had selected for their future profession. Term papers and book reports seemed to total almost unreasonable num- bers as they became a part of the intellectual development required in courses of ones major. But all of the juniors ' time was not spent in the classroom or library. One of the first weekends in September wel- comed in a dress dance called " The Honeymoon Is Over. " (To say the least, we really began to realize this as the semester progressed.) As the school year continued most of the activities of the class of I960 were concentrated towards producing the Junior Prom in May. To help spon- sor this gala occasion, the class worked many long and hard hours with the project known as Junior Goodies, ap- preciated by every hungry and thirsty individual on cam- pus. As the year comes to a close now, the juniors look for- ward to the coming fall when they can return to the campus and find themselves in the final stretch of that long journey to higher education.

This experience is always a re- flective time, that is certain, for it is the realization that another plateau in the mountainous symbolism of life has been attained. Whatever the college ex- periences before, the graduating senior has gained more than a mere certificate to prove he has ful- filled his four-year requirement. He has gained the assurance that his college background will express itself in every phase of his life, whatever his calling. He has gained the wealth of combined academic, social, and spiritual treasures. He asked, listened, supplemented, produced, worshipped, relaxed, and now he is graduating. But he will have these years al- ways, even when youth is a memory. The Elmhurst graduate will remain a symbol of the never ending motto, " In Thy Light We Shall See Light. " He will be prepared to live fully, the life which he has been given and which now he has made purposeful. There is no finer gift than that existence made worthwhile by an enlightened mind and soul. We graduated — there was always a memory. We Graduated . . EDITH ALLENDER Wood Dale, Illinois Education ELIN B. ASHENHURST Lombard, Illinois English JOHN E.

These have been rich and signifi- cant years and you are reluctant to bring this experience at Elmhurst to an end. A small liberal arts college like ours has many advantages, one of the most important of which is that we come to have a close acquaintanceship with a large number of people, along with the intimate friendships with a smaller group. These associations and friendships become a part of our life and experience. They are more than a memory; they become an influence. When you leave the campus you will become alumni of our school. It is becoming increasingly apparent that one of the strongest assets of any college is its alumni group. The future growth and development of our college depends to a very great degree upon what you will bring to it in the way of interest and support in the years to come. And now, three wishes which I hold for you: I wish you happiness; not just on the surface of things, but the kind of happiness which comes from the assurance of doing a worth while job. It will be the contentment which comes from a service rendered. I wish for you a life of creative fulfillment. May you have the satisfaction of a life so useful and fruitful that you will sense the meaning of constructive and creative living. I wish for you a strong faith, the kind of confidence in the values which endure, and in the purposes which make life worth while. I close with a few lines written many years ago by Henry Van Dyke: " Four things a man must do If he would keep his record true. To think without confusion clearly, To love his fellow men sincerely, To act from honest motives purely, To trust in God and Heaven securely. " Robert C.

type of education can be obtained by a relatively small group of selected students, living together in a closely-knit college community, studying under well-trained, sympathetic, experienced, and inspiring teachers. It believes that the learning process is a creative one with the learner contributing in- quiry and receptivity, the others their experiences, ideas, understanding. Elmhurst believes in the importance of the individual, and has purposely restricted its enrollment so that each student feels himself an important and significant unit, and so that close ties are developed between student and teacher. It maintains a faculty-student ratio (approximately one to fourteen) which ensures intimate contact between faculty members and students, in class and out. It believes in a wholesome social and recreational life for its students, and the impor- tance of up-to-date equipmen t and pleasant surroundings during four formative years. It recognizes the value of the training and attitudes which result from activities outside the classroom, and encourages a program which gives experiences in self-expression, self-government, and self-reliance.
