Elmhurst College provides an oppor- tunity for each member of the student body to be known by the faculty per- sonally and to receive the concerned as- sistance of the faculty members. The faculty, through their diverse interests, are a fount of information for the inquiring student in academic and social situations. The faculty members believe in the worth of the small Christian college. Through the Christian heritage of so many of the faculty members, the student body is able to become more fully enriched and to at- tain the " higher goals in life " along with MR C C ARENDS, DR.

The faculty mem- ber ' s primary responsibility is to fulfill his job as an educator to the best of his ability. Aside from this, professors spend numer- ous hours supporting school functions, counseling students, and sponsoring cam- pus organizations. These hours are vitally important ones in the life of a college, which we could not do without, but which we often forget. The faculty pursue their teaching responsibilities not only in the classroom but also in all other aspects of campus life; they " teach by living. " REV. J. W. FIEGENBAUM DR. ARMIN H. LIMPER DR.

SCHADE History 19 Freshmen Terrifying, Terrific, and Troublesome— these three words best describe the emotions and feehngs many of the fresh- men experienced during their first year at E. C. Arriving on campus before the upper- classmen, they were given a few days to become oriented to the college way of life; for many this was the first big step toward adulthood. Equipped with their beanies and E books, they spent their days taking tests and their evenings becoming acquainted with their new friends and classmates. The dorm students spent their spare moments discovering the intricacies of dorm life; this was the time to find out .„J- any and all possible information about roommates and people living next door. The commuters also spent those first days in the dorms in an attempt to help unify the class. FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS Dianne Mulholland; Treasurer, Lenorc Alirens; Secre- tary, David Sorenson; Vice-President, David Groene- mann; President. The day that most freshmen feared suddenly arrived with the return of the upperclassmen. They had heen forewarned that hfe would l:)ecome more difficult with the advent of the upperclassmen — es- pecially the sophomores. Now the fresh- men earnestly began to feel that they were a part of the college family as the sopho- mores carried out the initiation program. The initiation program was established 23 and supervised by the Student Union to orient and integrate the freshman class to Ehnhurst College. The freshmen will long remember competing in the feetball game and pajama races against the sophomores; they also had the privilege of serving and entertaining the Sophomore Class at the victory reception in Commons. The fresh- men sponsored a semi-formal dance, " Snowflake Silhouette, " during the fall semester. 25 The freshmen were governed by Dave Gronemann, president; Dave Sorenson, vice-president; Lenore Ahrens, secretary; Diane Mulholland, treasurer; and Doctor Rudolf Schade, adviser. SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS Joanne Bucher. Secretary, Paul Westermeyer; President, Wayne Hoffman; Treasurer, David Weistart; Vice-President. This year, as in previous years, the Sophomore Class was responsible for see- ing that the Freshman wore their beanies and carried their E-Books. It was not un- usual to see Sophomores sending Fresh- men back to their rooms for their beanies, E-Books, or both. The Sophomore Class was also in charge of Frosh Workday and contests between the Sophomore and Freshman Classes. Sophomores 28 Contests this year included a Feetball Game and a Pajama Race. It had been decided that the class with the lowest total score would serve the other class at a Freshman-Sophomore Victory Reception in October in Commons. The Freshmen served the Sophomores and provided en- tertainment. The Sophmore Class sponsored and planned a semi-formal dance, Gypsy Caravan, on November 21. The gym was decorated to create a gypsy atmosphere, and the entertainment centered around the gypsy theme. The officers of the Sophomore Class are: Paul Westermeyer, president; David Weistart, vice-president; Joanne Bucher, secretary; Wayne Hoffman, treasurer; and Professor J. W. Fiegenbaum, adviser. Dorm Councils ' I BARRACKS COUNCIL Kenneth Thomas, WiUiam Cordell, Richard Richards, Clyde Konneman. , COMMONS COUNCIL Paula Gonzales, Lenore Ahrens, Rita Knepper. IRION COUNCIL Ronald Mertens, Paul Rucker, Ken- neth Press. SOUTH HALL COUNCIL Helen Schwegman, Abilgail Schmiechen, Karen Spreiter, Rosalie Bilges, Kay Stinch- comb, Janice VanHooser. DINKMEYER COUNCIL Ann Tempel, Arlene Stuerzl, Sally Young, Dorothy Bohl, Joan Duvall. Each dorm has a Dorm Council whose primary objective is to make sure that the rules of the dorm are observed and that order is maintained. Dorm Council meet- ings are held whenever necessary. Dorm councilors are elected by the students of each individual dorm; the students elect a fellow student to represent their floor, and this person maintains order on that floor. The head resident works with the councilors to insure that rules and order are kept. Any new rules and or decisions of the Dorm Council are announced at Dorm Meetings. The Council serves for one year. LEHMANN COUNCIL Robert Nuernberger Richard Brinklioff Richard Tabbatt Lee Sparks 37 Dorm Life For many dormitory life is something new; for others it is an old experience. Everyone who lives in a dormitory has to become accustomed to doing more things for themselves. For many dorm life is the first contact with community living; others return to renew and to strengthen friend- ships with roommates and classmates. Each person has the experience of helping to decorate and arrange their room. Room decoration and arrangements reveal the personalities of the occupants. Each individual has the responsibility of observing the dorm rules, and of con- tributing his part to make dorm life a success. Dorm life also includes participat- ing in and attending the dorm devotions which are held regularly in each dorm. Dorm life is a wonderful experience, with numerous experiences and memories. Many will never forget the friendships that started there. Homecoming " The World ' s Fair " was the theme of Homecoming 1959. The campus buildings were decorated in the motif of a foreign country; using typical scenes or symbols of the particular country. Saturday morning the decorations were judged by a group of faculty members and townspeople; the best depiction of the theme was " Hole in the Dike " representing the Netherlands, which received the placque for the best decoration. For manv of the returning alumni, it was their first view of our newly com- pleted Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel. Tours were available to explain the multi- facilities of the chapel. On Friday evening the pageant " Sophistication is Your Guide to Better Living " was presented in the new chapel; the pageant portrayed the pleasure of learning to appreciate life as it is lived. Comprising part of the Friday events were interviews with alumni and visitors, in- cluding past president, Dr. Timothy Leh- mann. The pulchritude of the evening was provided by the Homecoming queen, Joan Duvall and her court. Coach Stone, the new footl all coach, was introduced with the 1959 Blue Jays football team. The activities for Saturday began with the traditional football game of Alumni vs. students in the morning. In the after- noon, the Homecoming game victory went to the Titans of Ilhnois Wesley an; the day was chmaxed by the Homecoming Dance " Faraway Places. " Sunday the alumni left for home carry- ing with them delightful memories of the week-end. Football The big news in Elmhurst football this season was the administration ' s decision to drop out of the C. C. I. and thus give the football team, as well as all the other athletic teams, the opportunity to compete against schools which have a similar phi- losophy towards sports. The schedule for next year includes games with six schools, all of whom shun subsidization. The op- ponents for next year include: Earlham College of Richmond, Indiana; Rose Poly- technic Institute of Terre Haute, Indiana; Lakeland College of Sheboygan, Wiscon- sin; and traditional opponents North Park, Concordia, and Lake Forest, the last of whom is the homecoming foe. The outstanding characteristic of the 1959 season was the Jay ' s gradual and opponent by opponent improvement over 1958. While admittedly the Jays were too, Elmhurst piled up impressive offen- sive statistics but was hurt by an inability to move the ball when inside the twenty yard line. Outstanding individuals included Joe Podpora who, with his passes to Pat Moritz and John Grollmus, accounted for most of Elmhurst s offense; Tom Eddy, defensive safety and punter; and linemen Dennis Bilen, Marv Lang, Howie Schwartz, Jack Benner, Jack Fielding, and Ron Maxon. Hopes for improvement in 1960 are based on a strong nucleus of underclass letter- men. E " Club In order to become a member of " E " C uh, an athlete must letter in a sport and go through an initiation. " E " Club is in charge of the E. I. I., electing the queen and her court and officiating at it. The athletes this year sponsored the dance, Pajama Party. Cheerleaders In September, 1959, the girls chosen to form the Elmhurst College Cheerleading Squad were Barb Collins, Captain, Karen Benson, Beverly Braiden, Sandy Ciotola, Dianne Eddy, Dee Egger, Linda Moore, Ruth Young, Sharon Meier, Alternate, and Carole Simmons, Alternate. The girls were chosen by a panel comprised of members from the athletic committee, the faculty and the students. A daily practice of hard work and ex- cellent co-operation comprised the cheer- leader ' s schedule. Each girl - took part leading the student body in cheers at both football and basketball games. Many new cheers as well as old favorites were yelled out loud and strong. Elms The Elms, the yearbook of Elmhurst College, is compiled by the students with the aid of Mr. Swords, faculty advisor. The editor, Pat Kroll (1959-1960) headed the staff and made sure that they fulfilled their jobs. These are such as scheduling pic- tures, writing articles, and identifying pictures. The deadlines had to be met. Students helped by writing articles which then had to be edited by the literary editor and typed into copy for the printer. Getting the Elms ready takes a great deal of hard work, but the results, the memories kept alive by it, make it worth the effort. 50 wi.i.iHim.i.ii».):i!i.i.»!) ' i.iri:i. M!i-: ' i.rKi;i i;r.

The Elm Bark is a weekly publication under the sponsorship of the Student Union.The paper this year was distributed on Tuesday, allowing the students to have information concerning coming weekend events. Work on The Elm Bark is open to any interested student. Beside writers, the staff needs typists, proof readers and people interested in advertising. It is the policy of The Elm Bark that news be reported in an unbiased, inde- pendent manner as a service to its readers. Elm Bark Basketball The 1960 basketball team provided per- haps the most exciting and most successful plays that Elmhurst College fans have seen in many seasons. The team lived up to pre-season predictions of providing a series of skillfully played games for the season. Many tense moments were pro- vided for the spectators, as most of the games played were won or lost by close margins. An analysis of this year ' s team reveals Dick Luzietti as the Blue Jays basketman; Dick proved his ability many times. Tip- ping the ball from a center spot was Earl 53 Collignan. Freshman Bob Dein proved and won his place on the Elmhurst team as a Freshman. Jim Dancy, a junior, has again proved his place on the team. Bob Smith, last year ' s gain to the Varsity squad, has shown that he is adept at the game. The top players from last season com- bined with the players from the Freshman and Sophomore classes. This indicates that the season next year will be a very hopeful one, with the returning players again playing for the Blue Jays. Social Life Many varied social events help to make up a fully rounded college program. These activities are designed to give the students the opportunity of participating in social activities right here on the college campus. Included in these activities are dances- folk dances and social dances, — parties, movies, and plays. Dances are of the informal, semi-formal and formal varieties. The semiformals in- clude such dances as Homecoming, the 57 Sophomore dance and the Freshman dance. The formal dances are Bachelor ' s Holiday and the Junior Prom. Different organizations are in charge of these dances and they appoint committees to carry out the planning and organization of them. Movies are planned for the students ' pleasure- and cultural growth. Several of these are planned during the year. A part of the cultural life are also the plays put on by student and faculty mem- bers. SOCIAL LIFE COMMITTEE David Schleutcr, Richard Brinkhoff, Donald Sabbert Frank Dietz, Gayle Baker, Joan Duvall, Rosalie Bilges, Virginia Szanislo. There are four plays presented each school year. Varied and entertaining are the themes of these. Two teas are held a year - the Women s Union Christmas tea and the Senior tea. These activities are designed to unite the student and faculty in fellowship. These are a few of the social events that are made available to E. C. students. 61 Christmas time was an active time as far as college life was concerned. Many parties were held for the students. The Student Union sponsored a party for all students and faculty. There was also the inter-dorm party in which each dorm pre- sented some form of entertainment for everyone ' s enjoyment. Not to be forgotten was the holiday " dress-up meal " in Com- mons at which egg nog was one of the extras; the highlight of the meal was furnished by some Elmhurst College mu- sicians. Choral Union The twenty-sixth annual Christmas Candlehght Service was presented by Choral Union late in December before the Christmas holiday. iM embers of the college community, alumni, faculty, and students were present for this impressive service. A seven piece string ensemble accom- panied the forty-one member Choral Union. The choir, carrying illumined candles, processed, singing an Ancient Plainsong, Veni, EmmanueJ. Two cantatas were sung: To Us a Child is Given and Rejoice, Be- loved Christians. Adding a great deal to the meaning of this Christmas season, this service is looked forward to by many be- cause of its inspirational effect and its significance for all. Commons Commons, the college dining hall, serves all meals for the students on cam- pus. The serving hours are arranged so that students can relax and enjoy the food and fellowship that are available. The regular full time staff consists of seven adults; the serving of the food and wash- ing of the dishes is done by paid campus students. The food is served " cafeteria style " to facilitate the serving. There are occasions during the year that afford the student a chance to leave the college community and become once again a member of his own family group. Each student eagerly looks forward to these periods. Several weeks before the holiday or week-end, the student starts counting days until his departure. As the days be- come fewer, the student begins to make preparations for his transportation — by car, bus, plane, or train. The day before, suitcases are found and packing com- mences. The day of departure arrives, and good byes to all of the friends are said along with promises to write. Soon the student will be home, sharing his ex- periences with his parents. Student Government Conference Each year representatives from the Stu- dent Unions of the C. C. I. have a conference on the campus of one of its members; this year the conference was held at Elmhurst. The delegates conduct a business meeting, elect officers for the next year, and participate in discussion groups. The small groups discuss problems that are encountered in the scope of the Student Union. A banquet highlighted the week-end. The annual C. C. F. Winter Retreat was held between semesters at Green Lake, Wisconsin. Three stimulating lectures by Dr. Allen O. Miller of Eden Seminary were followed by small group discussions at which time the retreaters came to grips with the topic, " Christianity in Conflict with Values. " Ice skating and sledding were some of the recreational activities available. The traditional midnight hike, a camp- fire on the lake, and ice skating high- lighted the activities. The worship services were in the form of three dramatic presentations, dealing with the sub-topics discussed in the lectures and discussions. Culminating the entire program was a communion service in which " personal " communion was served. The experience of true fellowship by the retreaters in an experience that will always make the ' 59- ' 60 E. C. retreat something of significance to everyone who attended. Women ' s Union is made up of all the women students. The officers are: Karen Haub, president; Lenore Strand, vice-pre- sident; Carolyn Bach, secretary; and Sarah Bishop, treasurer. Working together, the women sponsor several activities on campus. Among these are women ' s intra- murals, the Christmas tea, the circus, a breakfast, and Bachelor ' s Holiday. During the four day period of Bachelor ' s Hohday women showed their gratitude to the men for all of the courtesies shown them throughout the year. Carrying bodks and trays, paying the bills, helping the men on with their coats, and walking them back to the dorms were some of the serv- ices the gals rendered to their favorite guys. The activities of this week were climaxed by a semi-formal dance appro- priately titled " The Tender Trap. " Lecture Series 1960 was an exceptional year in the history of the Elmhurst College Lecture Series. The common theme for this, the seventh series, was " The Creative Mind in Mid-Century America. " The first lecture featured Professor Nathan A. Scott, Jr., of the Federated Theologi- cal Faculty of the University of Chicago. His topic was " Art and the Renewal of Human Sensibility in Mass Society. " George Cohen, an American artist, spoke on " The Role of the Painter in American Life. " Walter Hendl, As- sociate Conductor of the Chicago Symphony, revealed " The Conductor ' s World " and John Ciardi, present day American Poet, spoke on " Contemporary American Poetry. " The series was arranged through the efforts of the com- mittee: Mr. Swords, chairman; Mrs. Story; Dr. Rarclay; Dr. DeRoo; Dr. Schade; Dr. Schmidt; Eva Augustin; Ann Menzel; John Rock; Paul Westermeyer and David Weistart. The Religious Life Committee promotes and sponsors the rehgious interests of the campus. It consists of students and faculty members appointed by and including the College President and one Student Chair- man. Its work has two aspects; the theo- retical and the practical. As a theoretical body the committee has discussions on the purpose of religion on the campus, methods of fulfilling that purpose, and the relationship of religion to other aspects of campus life. The practical side of the committee ' s work consists in supporting and encouraging participation in worship services and planning and preparing many of these services. Part of the committee ' s work is the Religious Emphasis Period during the campus year. Vespers, Chapel, Matins, C. C. F., Senate Chaplain, Re- ligion in Life Week, are all related to the work and purpose of this committee. Student Union Government The 1959-60 activities of the Student Union government can be counted among the more successful student endeavors. The two main governing activities of the SU are distrilniting the $20,000 annual budget collected from activity fees and establishing the social life calendar. Through these two phases of administra- tion almost all of the varied activities of the student body are influenced by the official representatives of the student body. Besides overseeing the calendar and budget arrangements, the SU Cabinet and Senate collaborated in formulating policy (in regard to such items as the maintain- ance and supervision of the SU Lounge and a proposal for an increased activity fee based on a survey of its constituency), in streamlining Senate procedures, and in streamlining the SU Constitution for pre- sentation to the students in a referendum.

The intramural program is designed to provide athletic competition for those who are unable to participate in inter-collegiate sports. The Windsprinters and the Has Beens, two senior teams, took the 1959 crowns in track, softball, and football re- spectively; the Woohoos and Warriors were basketball champs in the A and B leagues respectively. The women ' s intramural program was under the supervision of the Women ' s Union. Intramural chairman this year was Richard Brandon. Intramurals The story of the 1959-1960 Ehnhiirst wresthng season lay in a shortage of man- power. Early in the year this shortage af- fected the lighter weights but later, due to drop-outs and ineligibility, the heavier weights were also hit. Outstanding indi- vidual performances were turned in by Bob Reinecke who took the conference crown at 137 pounds, and Bill Ball who showed great improvement over last year. Rudy Hastedt, at 147 pounds, was also a stand-out for the first half of the season. The 1960 Elmhurst baseball squad looked for improvement as this article went to press. The basis for this optimism lay in a strong nucleus of veteran ball players. The pitching, with John Nagy, Walt Burdick, and Bill Blazing, figured to be improved over 1959. The catching was in the capable hands of Don Frandsen, while centerfield was patrolled by Tom Eddy. At first base the Jays had Jim Zeumer who, though always a good glove man, first began to hit last year. Baseball Track The Elmhurst thin clads were looking for perhaps their greatest season in 27 years in 1960. Boyd Bender in the 100, 220, and the broad jump; John Grollmus in the 120 high hurdles; Bill Rumpf in the 220 lows, Jim Nash in the high jump and pole vault; Ken Thomas in the mile and two mile; Don Sinclair in the 880 and mile; Frank Riekhoff in the 880 and mile relay; and Rich Brandon in both hurdles and the pole vault were the basis of Coach " Pete " Langhorst ' s optimism. The Elmhurst harriers finished out their 1959 ca mpaign with a very creditable record of five wins as against four losses. The success of the squad was largely a team effort, but early in the season fresh- man Don Sinclair took over in the number one spot. Others who ran well and scored regularly for the team coached by Pete Langhorst included John Bock, Ken Thomas, Bob Groves, and Frank Riekhof. This good cross country record presaged an excellent track team for the coming spring. In 1960 Elmhiirst will again field a tennis team sans tennis courts. In 1938 and again in 1959 money was set aside to build tennis courts, but in both years the money was eventually used to repair dam- aged water mains on campus. Despite this handicap, Coach C. C. Arends expects to have a very strong team built around a letterman nucleus of Captain George Tor- mohlen, Dick Luzietti, Chuck Mittler, and Julius Clyne. The net men are preparing for the conference meet held at Rock Island. Elmhurst ' s 1960 golf team was looking forward to a season in which acquisition of experience was expected to compensate for any defeats that might be suffered ac- cording to golf coach " Spud " Owens when interviewed early in the spring. In the last weeks of the long, hard winter the team worked out with the practice cage in IHA. The greensmen were relying on Bob Nickodem, Jim Larson, Jerry Van Hoose, Ron Riemer, Jim Jassels, Bruce Baumonk, and Eric Walsh for success in 1960. W. R. S. E. W. R. S. E., the student operated radiq service of Elmhurst College, was organ- ized in 1947, and is thus the campus ' youngest publication. With studios located on the second floor of Kranz Hall, it serves the campus community with various broadcasts including direct remotes of away basketball games. Under the leadership of Thomas Tir- rito, past Director and David Knilcer, cur- rent Director, the operating equipment was remodeled during the past school year. The system was virtually rebuilt from microphone to transmitter to better serve the college and its students. A division of forensics, debate develops skill in prompt, precise and critical think- ing as well as effective argumentation and public speaking. The Elmhurst Debate Team attends weekly debate meets in the Chicago area with local colleges and uni- versities. Elmhurst also participates in various Debate Tournaments within lUi- nois. Members of the Debate Team this year were Thomas Bauer, Thomas Burke, Sonja Conrad, Edwin Hoefer, Wendy Huntley, Raymond Miller, Gerald Schram, Robert Stevens and Jan Van Fassen. The team ' s coaches were Miss Hardman and Dr. Low. 97 Firesides An evening at the home of a faculty member discussing a pertinent issue and ending with some refreshments character- izes the Firesides evening. Small groups of students visit faculty homes to discuss the chosen topic; the organizing and fulfilling of the details are supervised by a student- faculty committee. One of the topics dis- cussed this year was the future at Elm- hurst College; the students voiced their opinions regarding the size of an ideal campus, what the role of a Christian col- lege is and many other questions. 100 Chapel Choir The Chapel Choir is a forty voice mixed sacred chorus organized with the function of presenting special music for college services. Its program has expanded to in- clude off-campus concert work, including a spring tour. This season the choir toured parts of Illinois, Missouri, Indiana and Kentucky presenting, under the direction of Dr. Krueger, its service of sacred music. The officers are Eric Hagen, president; Donna Fitch, vice-president; Marlene Dettmer, secretary-treasurer; Pat Kroll and Dennis Stock, business managers; and Diane Dietz, accompanist. Men ' s Glee Club Under the inspiring leadership of Mr. David Austin, the Men ' s Glee Club again completed a successful season of concert and chapel appearances. The Spring Tour took the Glee Giub from Duluth to Omaha. The Club, beginning with the greatest personnel turnover in its history, v as moulded into a well-balanced, unified group. With a repertoire ranging from Russian Orthodox liturgy to selections such as " What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor, " the Glee Club satisfied the musical tastes of its many audiences. Polyhymnia Polyhymnia, l:)etter known to E. C. as " Poly, " is the all women ' s musical organi- zation on campus. Under the direction of Mrs. Viola Repp, the twenty-six members of " Poly " gave many concerts in Chicago area churches this past year. Their parady of " Sunny Side of the Street, " " Just put your hand at your waist, a smile on your face . . . , ' is a fitting description of the " Poly " girls as they represented Elmhurst College during their spring tour in In- diana, Ohio, West Virginia, and Michigan. 104 It The band, organized and directed by Gordon Seiffertt this year, was present at all the home football and basketball games. Music played consisted of peppy swing tunes, marches, and dixieland music. There were about fifteen members who played each time. Rehearsals were held at the beginning of the football sea- son and later as needed to learn new music to make for more variety. The members of the band worked hard to achieve suc- cess as a pep band. Theatre As the sound of twin pianos rang through the auditorium, the Elmhurst Col- lege Theatre season opened. By extending the stage; the production of Menottis ' opera The Medium swept into the area once held by the audience. Hardly had the music, heavy with the motiff ' s of man ' s mind dimmed when the laughter of Anouilh ' s comedy Thieve ' s Carnival was heard in a ballet comique. The second semester began as The Diary of Anne Frank explored hope under the face of prejudice. Closing the season was Agatha Christie ' s mystery The Mouse- trap. The drama classes and Theatre Guild provided settings for the productions. i Juniors JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS Ronald Koeppl: Vice-President, Jo Ann Tomsovic: Secretary, Charles Krei- chelt: President, Rev. Kenneth Zie- bell: Advisor, Verla Kistner: Treas- urer. The Junior Class, class of 1961, has again completed a very successful year. The class under the leadership of its of- ficers, Charles Kreichelt; president; Ron Koeppl, vice-president; JoAnn Tomsovic, secretary; and Verla Kistner, treasurer; and with the help of their advisor, Rev. Kenneth Ziebell, sponsored two social events during the past year. In November, a bingo party was given in Commons at which many prizes were awarded to winners. Approximately one hmidred persons attended the party and everyone enjoyed himself immensely. The highlight of the year vas the Junior Prom, " Garden of Dreams, " which was held on May 6 in the Bal Tabarin Room of the Sherman Hotel. Much work on the part of the prom committee, which was headed by Judy Boese, and of other mem- bers of the class went into making thi5 r eveiiiiiij; a success. A large part of the work in preparation for the prom consisted of the sale of Junior Goodies, the moncN ' mak- ing scheme of the Junior Class each year to help defray prom expenses, at football games and at dances. This operation was headed by Dave Martens and Dorothy Continuous music was provided at the Gev ecke and was aided by the help of prom by the orchestras of Peter Palmer many members of the class. and Bill Russell. At 11:00 p.m., the queen ' s court, which consisted of Joyce Chum, Judy Gass, Joan Hehners, Miriam Meyer, and Joan Schmitz, was presented before those attending, and at about 12:30 a.m., a wonderful evening of dancing was ended. 117 Junior Prom This year ' s Junior prom, Garden of Dreams, was held in the Bal Tabarin Room of the Sherman Hotel. The music for the evening was provided by the orchestras of Peter Palmer and Bill Russell; these two orchestras played alternately for an even- ing of continuous music. The couples were greeted in the foyer of the room by the prom court of Junior girls and the guests of honor. Highlighting the evening was the presentation of the Junior prom queen; this year the queen was Judy Gass. She was attended by four of her classmates; she and her court were presented by the president of the Junior class, Charles Kreichelt. Many people helped to make the prom a success through their work on committees; the general chairman of the prom was Judy Boese. As is traditional, Honors Day combined the recognition of outstanding academic students and the tribute to mothers. The program was held in Hammerschmidt memorial Chapel; entertainment for the parents and guests was provided by the Polyhymnia and Glee Club. Honors Day Scholarships were awarded to the enter- ing freshmen who were at the head of their respective classes. Some of the pre- sent academically superior underclassmen also received recognition, and in some in- stances they received scholarships, grants or awards. The scholarships were pre- sented by representatives of each of the awarding groups.

Graduation marks a milestone xn your progress, but it also means the breaking of ties which have come to mean much to all of us. These associations are deeply cherished, and we ap- Trec ' ate them most when we are about to lose them The words Alma Mater " will have new meaning for you as applied to Elmhurst College. For 89 years now men and women have come here and have gone away to all parts of this land and to the ends of the earth. You will be joining this great company. There is no way of measuring accurately ;Lt these years at Elmhurst College have meant to you. The influence of devoted teachers has been yours. These men and wom.en have given of themselves for only one reason, - because they love to teach. Jhat will be remembered are not th. mistakes you have made, or we have made, but that you were here for a few brief years, and that you brought youth and life and love and high hopes in your time. vVe are grateful for that, but even more grateful for what you may becom:e. Let me welcome you into the group of the alumni of Elmhurst College. More and more in these days our colleges are depending on the l y l y, interest and support of their graduates. You know the f ' as well as anyone. Will you keep Elmhurst m your heart and thought and prayers as it marches forward to the greater days ahead? I speak not only for myself, but for the faculty and the administration of Elmhurst College when I extend to you congratulations and best wishes .0 the future. School we love. Elmhurst, Live for aye; God shed his grace on thee. Loyal be thy sons and daughters To thy memory. Robert C, Stanger, v President 135 Graduation Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel was the focal point of this year ' s graduation activities. This was the first year that the Chapel was used for commencement. In the morning there was the Baccalaureate Service; the speaker, The Reverend Roger L. Shinn, reminded the graduates that a part of their lives were ended but now a new part was commencing.

Four honorary degrees were con- ferred on men from various professions. A reception was held for the graduates and their guests. 136 Senior Activities ELAINE ALLRICH St. Louis, Missouri English S.N.E.A. 1,2,3,4. CCF 2,3,4. Theater 1,3. Theater Guild 4. Band 1,2.

PARK AVE. 157 Elmhurst College believes that the best possible 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 con- tributing inquiry and receptivity, the others their experiences, ideas, and understand- ing. 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 insures intimate contact between faculty members and students, in class and out.
