Text from Pages 1 - 164 of the 1961 volume:

I. All Through the Year . . . Elmhursl College presents a different face I " students, to instructors, and to ad- ministrators. Elmhursl presents vet another face, nature ' s face, symbolizing the growth and change oi people throughout college and all of life. In the fall leaves tumble down helter skelter toward the earth from parent branches. I r hardlv reach tin- ground before huge white fluffs of snow are seen slowly setting, seeming!) from eternity, and into oblivion anion- thousands of other snowflakes; vvintei has come. No sooner has the -now settled, it seems, than screen leaves push eagerlv upward: suddenly, it is spring. In fall, like the leaves, students and faculty -tail out for theii new home, school, to learn more aiM.nl their world, about fellow men. I pon arrival, almost immediately the process ol change hegins with renewed vigor, as it has in years past, and will continue for countless future years. Like snowflakes countless papers fl to and fro. each different, each special. Jusl a- suddenly a- spring. students and faculty emerge triumphant, a year older, a year wiser, changed from strangers of Septembei into the collegiate family looking forward to graduation in June or a future June. All through the year, then, i- out theme, presenting the ston ol that change taking place between tall and spring. 1 The Campus Dominated by the beautiful Hammer- schmidt Memorial Chapel, the campus re- volves around the Sunken Gardens. Huge elms, giving the college and town their name of Elmhurst, are planted around the gardens, where students study and play while construction continues on the new men ' s dorm. Old Main, bu It in 1878, has been renov tied and modernized. It contains classrooms, laboratories, and the campus store. Kranz Hall, built in 1873, contains the speech clinic, clussrooms, jaculty offices, student union, and JP.RS.E. 7 The 1961 Elms is Dedicated to you: Dr. Arthur Mertzke When in the course of our college experience we encounter a professor whose intellectual achieve- ments are outstanding, whose practical knowledge of the everyday world is extensive and whose re- fined conduct is an inspiration to all around him, it is altogether fitting that we should show our appreciation of his example by bestowing upon him a high honor. You are especially deserving of such honor, Dr. Arthur J. Mertzke, for the vast knowledge you have imparted to your students as visiting profes- sor of business administration, for your under- standing guidance as head resident of Lehman Hall, and particularly for your wholesome influence on this campus, for the past three years. As you retire now from Elmhurst, you can look back upon a distinguished career in education and bus ' ness. You have taught and worked across the United States, concentrating your work in the mid- west. In between working as a director of research for the National Association of Real Estate Boards and as director of media for Batten Barton Durs tine and Osburn of Chicago, you have lectured at various colleges, among them Cornell, North- western, and DePaul Universities. You were listed in Who ' s Who in America, and are now in the Who ' s Who in the Midwest. Moreover, you can remember the many friends you have made here and elsewhere through your friendly understanding of others. During and after classes, Dr. Mertzke is willing to explain terms and concepts with any interested students. As a mere token of our deep-felt appreciation and best wishes for a happy future, to you, Dr. Arthur J. Mertzke, we dedicate the 1961 ELMS. The classroom is the familiar setting where most students remember Dr. Mertzke. In the Fall As the leaves tumble down in their riotous colors and the students gather, nature provided a backdrop of color for innumerable blue and white beanies. Everywhere was to be seen the smiling excitement of the new students caught up in the spirit of the season. Among the falling leaves also appeared those people who were to lead the newcomers. The enthusiasm of the campus was there too, expressed in the all-out, carefree exhiliration of fall. There, too, was the preparation for the coming season, for the cold winter and the coming studies; for over all the en- thusiasm was the serious work, the knowing look of what lay ahead. They knew the autumn is only the beginning, the crashing cymbol before the great action begins of self realization and social concern. Dr. Stanger, the president of Elmhurst College completed his third year as head oj our rapidly growing liberal arts college. Inaugurated in ]958, he has become recognized as the official representative of the Board on campus. The President and Board of Directors Dr. Robert C. Stanger is the president of Elmhurst College. As president, it is his duty to perform the innumerable tasks which form the policy of the college and to lead the administration in all the many and varied activities which go into running such an organization as a college. As president, Dr. Stanger is the religious and educational leader of the institution. An important part of the college is found in the body of the Board of Directors. The men and women on the board meet during the year to decide the major func- tional policies that the college will follow in the forth-coming school year. Meetings of the board are held three times a year. This year the board voted to increase tuition, room, and board to meet the current expenses. The members, who are leaders in their respective communities, come from all over the country. Row 1- to t Mr P. Wirth, Dr. R. Stanger, Dr. E. Goebel, Chairman, Dr. L. Hammerschmidt, Dr. N.

Gonsor, Rev. F. Alinck. Director of Evening School Another important assistant on campus is Mr. Roger L. Baumeister. This busy man serves Elmhurst as a speech instructor, as the Head Resident of Irion Hall, men ' s dor- mitory, as the assistant to the Dean of the College. Dean Friedli, and as the Director of the Evening College Session held each semester. Administrative Assistant A new addition to the administration is Mr. Soma, who has completed his first year as Administrative Assistant for the college. Working exclusively with the traffic situa- tion and available parking facilities he has accomplished much to alleviate this situa- tion. Traffic signs and parking areas are now heeded on campus because of the effec- tiveness of Mr. Soma and his staff. Director of Development Always ready to stop and talk about Elm- hurst is Mr. Darl E. Snyder, Director of Development, including public relations and fund raising. Through Mr. Snyder ' s efforts, Elmhurst College gets in the news, keeps in touch with alumni, and recruits new students. Representing the college, he meets with many business executives and committees, and plans the pamphlets and articles which con- tain information about Elmhurst all over the nation. Director of Admissions Representing the college in another area is Mr. Gus A. Gruenewald, the Director of Admissions. All through the year he may be seen conducting interested prospective students and their parents around campus to give them an idea of just exactly what Elm- hurst College is like. As Director of Admis- sions Mr. Gruenewald goes to " college nights " and visits high schools to answer questions about the college. Much of his work includes writing letters in answer to requests or to names of students who may be interested in Elmhurst. ■Mired Friedli, Dean of the College and Registrar. Genevieve Staudt. Dean of Students. Through the capable hands of Dean Genevieve Staudt. Dean of Students, go the problems and requests of the students. Her office is the center of counseling, a place where any problem will be worked out. whether it be personal, scholastic, or con- cerning a job on or off campus. Because her office is open any time of day. students may stop in at any time to visit, or find the answers they are seeking. As the registrar, instructor of education, and dean of the College. Dean Alfred Friedli seems, and is a busy, friendly man. It is his duty to arrange schedules for classes and for exams. Busy as he is. Dean Friedli is always ready to chat with the students as he goes about campus. The two deans work together to keep Elmhurst college running smoothly with the help of the faculty, the instructors and the department heads who hold classes m the many fields offered by Elmhurst. Being a small college, Elmhurst has the distinction on enabling students to know their professors on a first-hand basis, which contributes to the general friendly atmosphere which surrounds the whole campus, both students and faculty together. - Faculty William R.

Senate The student governmental body on campus is the S. U., or Student Union. The senate and the execu- tive cabinet meet to solve problems which arise for the student body, and to represent the students in dealing with the administration. A third division of the S. U. is that comprised of the whole student body, which meets only once each year at election time. Among the significant accomplishments of the Student Union this year is the affiliation with the National Student Association. In connection with this a new office was created, NSA co-ordin- ator. Another office created this year is the com- muter representative who is elected in addition to the non-dorm senators elected from each class on a set ratio. 24 Rose Osinski, Cynthia Bloesch, Mary Broadhead. Charles Kreichelt, Marvin Lang, Charles Kindermann. Each fall the students who have come to live on campus meet to select the people they wish to represent them in their dorm council. A president and a representative from each class is selected in each dorm to meet once a month to decide policy and dorm issues that may come up. The dorm coun- cil- also discusses dorm projects, such as homecom- ing decorations and parties, given to welcome fresh- men, say good-bye to seniors, or devotions al special times of the year, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Interdorm Council is made up of the presi- dent of each dorm, each head resident, and Dean Staudt. Its purpose is to solve problems the in- dividual dorm councils cannot handle or of sig- nificance to all dormitories and the administration.

For them especially the scene is set with the vibrant colors of autumn. As the ivy turns fire red, the blue and white beanies of the freshmen, this year in a record breaking enrollment of more than 300, pop up all over campus. The frosh look forward to four vears of study and a degree; however, there is more to their first year than study. In the coming year they will make their most lasting friend- ships, and will form new ideals; serious thinking and wholehearted fun fill the year as the fall grows from the games of Freshmen Week into that nerve-wracking first exam. Yes, the fall is for freshmen, for their entrance into college life. The campus greets the beanies with a welcome and a smile.

Freshmen Week Impossible as it seems, into Freshman Week is put the essence of college life. All the deep concen- tration, the accelerated pace, the probing examin- ations, the fellowship and the tradition that college offers are there. In their spare time from tests, the freshies, wearing beanies, make friends, attend convocation and chapel, meet professors at fire- sides, go to games, on tours, to lectures on study and college life in general. At night they have dances, games, dorm meetings, and bull sessions till the wee hours of the morning. All week the students on the Freshman Week Committee plan activities to unite, entertain, and acquaint freshmen with their new surroundings. Matins start the day right. Bab) sillers? or a discussion of " Brave New World? " • How ' s the water? Freshmen Week Activities 4 ivarm fire to end the day. Because it is the privilege of the sophomores to challenge fresh- men on their knowledge of the E Book and the fight song, freshies are given a chance to retaliate in a tug-of-war across a water-filled pit. This year the freshies had their tug-of-war during Freshman Week with the Freshman Week- Committee, in which the commit- tee girls won, and the committee boys lost to the freshman teams. 0 I ft 38 Parent ' s Weekend Under the direction of Mr. James Thatcher and a student committee, parents were invited to the campus for a two day program. The weekend enabled parents to see Elmhurst and its faculty. During this time activities were planned to acquaint parents with college life. Faculty members ex- plained the academic life; students entertained; and parents toured the dorms and buildings. In preparation for the event, dorms were scoured and students looked forward to seeing families whom they left in September. A unique advantage the weekend provided was to enable town students and parents to participate with dorm students ' parents in becoming acquainted with the campus to which their sons and daughters travel daily. Parents gather in Hammer schmidt Chapel. Students handle registration for the Elmbark Karen Pantermeuhl, Charles Car- penter, Judith Campanella, Den- nis Klass, Glenn Trost, John Sallstrom. Richard Hemann. Under the editorship of John Sallstrom. the Elmbark had one of its most success- full years to date. Expanding the news and feature staffs and joining several intercollegiate press services enabled the paper to present a wider variety of news than had been formerly possible. The Gadfly also stimulated thought with his challenging comments. The sports staff expanded to give all sports and intramurals better coverage as well as trying to have a provocative column on the page. Editor Sallstrom was asked to speak on a panel at a college newspaper conference at Mac Murray College on the problem of censorship by the administration. This conference was attended by delegates from over 300 schools and is considered the best in the state. The paper also sent several staff members to this and other conferences.

Chapel and Assembly Bishop ' s Players arrive for presentation of " The Devil and Once a week, Assemblies are held in the Ham- merschmidt Memorial Chapel. Different guest speakers lecture on the arts or social sciences so that the students may broaden their cultural hor- izons. On November 21, 1960, for example, the pianist Soulima Stravinsky, appearing under the auspices of the Arts Program of the Association of American Colleges and Student Union of Elmhurst College, gave a concert. And in the month of March, the annual college lecture series was held. Daniel Webster " in assembly. Each Wednesday, the college family takes time from its schedule of classes, studies and adminis- trative activities and meets in Hammerschmidt Memorial Chape] for worship services. The wor- ship services are conducted by the college chaplain. Rev. J. W. Fiegenbaum and is assisted by one of the three vocal groups on campus, Chapel Choir, Polyhymnia, or Men ' s Glee Club. Each week theiv is a speaker who may be a member of the faculty, a pastor of the community, or a special guest on campus. A brief hour for a renewal of faith. ■- " • ■ ; % 4fW A 41 The Polyhymnia Polyhymnia, the women ' s choral group, lakes its name from the Greek muse of that name, the muse of lyric poetry and inventress of the lyre. The Polyhymnia of Elmhurst College is open to any woman on campus, and has 27 members this year. " Poly " , as it is called, sing sacred and secular music under the direction of Mrs. Viola Repp. Each spring. Poly goes on tour, presenting con- certs to churches and organizations in the United States. This year Poly toured the east, including the states of Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania.

" Olga from the Volga " , an original production set the tone ) With homecoming the campus reverted to the Gay Nineties. Since September the men let their sideburns and beards grow in order to compete in the beard contest.. Around campus, beards in all stages were to be seen, with the moustaches and beards of last year gaining their due acknowledge- ment. Meanwhile the girls busied themselves with the dresses their great grandmothers wore, floor-length gibson-girl styles, and frilly pantaloons and shori dresses for the younger set. Everything from bath- ing suits covering the knees to waist-cinching Irion Hall flew away with the trophy. the weekend. walking suits with bouncing bustles were shown in the dress contest. A traditional event, the Fresh- men Torch Parade, then lit up the Sunken Gardens as the freshmen, carrying lighted flares, sang the Alma Mater. Then followed the homecoming show, a student created and produced play, " Olga from the Volga. " parodying E.C. life. When Olga. an athletic Russian young lady, takes over campus activities, success goes to her head, and the students plan revolt by tempting Olga with love. Everything turns out fine for all concerned in the laugh-filled comedy. Since when are kisses sold here? Homecoming The student body selected their queen from all the girls on campus. The reigning beauty presiding over homecoming this year was Judy Gass, senior, from Madras State, India. In her court were seniors Joyce Chum, Elmwood Park, Illinois, and Ruth Young, Elmhurst, Illinois; juniors Rosalie Biljes, Parma, Ohio, and Karen Dorn, St. Louis, Missouri ; sophomores Diane Eddy, Melrose Park, Illinois, and Jennie Fong, Chicago, Illinois; freshmen Sue Bowers, Chicago, Illinois, and Jane DTsa, Spring Grove, Illinois. Each student selects his favorite. Commons releases steam with its engine. Isn ' t this 1890? wonder if it will ever get finished. The queen and her court appeared three times during the homecoming activities. They attended the pep rally, and rode around the football field in separate convertibles for each class and the queen. Later they were presented at the dance where the queen led her court in a dance in their honor. Judith Gass, Queen Rosalie Biljes Karen Dorn Diane Jenny- Eddy Fong Sue Bowers Jane D ' Isa Football After a twelve year lay-off, " Uncle Pete " again took the reins as head coach of the Elmhurst College gridiron squad. Relying mostly on a ground attack, Coach Langhorst concentrated on the line. He used a straight " T " formation with variations in the slot backs. Neal Blum, who started his sophomore year of college coaching worked mainly with the men in the backfield. Returning again to an independent team, the 1960 Elmhurst Blue Jays looked very improved over last year. They still lacked experience, for the Jays had only eight returning lettermen in the thirty-seven man squad. The line, both offensively and defensively, was the most improved part of this year ' s team. Still rather lijht, the front wall had much more depth this year. Six seniors saw their last action this year on the football field. Tom Eddy, co- captain, played quaterback and was the team ' s leading ground gainer. Halfback Lucky Crawford was the team ' s second ground gainer. Bob Reinecke played for the Jays for the first time this year, and found a spot at halfback. Jack Fielding played regularly in the defense end slot. Joe Podpora, co-captain, played in the halfback position. Marv Lang experienced the misfortune of injuring his knee before the North Park game and was unable to finish out the year.

Cross Country 49 In The Winter The serenity of the first snowfall brings one to the realization that winter is at hand. The peaceful appearance of the campus is deceptive, for it is at this time that all of the many activities associated with winter come into full swing. The gym echoes with the practice of the basketball team, while the wrestling team works out in I.H.A. The results of these practice sessions, games and meets, are open to all students. Winter brings with it the Christmas season, and this spirit always emerges on campus. There are times for gaiety and solemnity as the spirit of the season manifests itself in the expression of the students — dances, parties, and concerts. Activity reaches a feverish pitch on campus those last few days before Christmas; then, that long awaited vacation comes and serenity again claims the campus.

They must plan their function, they must check the new freshmen on their knowledge of the " E " Book; and they will remember friendships and look deeper into themselves as they continue the process begun in their own freshman year. Having had a start in college, yet still with much to look forward to, the sophomores found a year full of challenges and surprises. As a fund-gathering move, they sponsored the " Sophomore Sun-up, " a breakfast for sophomores held in the S. U. Grill. Later they planned and presented " Autumn Gold, " the sophomore semi-formal, in which they used an original decoration method by putting the band along the wall on a platform. What do you want, little boy? Santa Clam and his reindeer in a beat fashion. Christmas Vocalizing about Christmas. The Barracks quartet share their Christmas carol. Striving once more to prepare for Christ ' s birthday in an appropriate manner, campus activities center around the Christmas story. Traditional events on campus are planned with much the same care and attention as a family celebration. In cooperation with the Elmhurst community. Elmhurst College participated in the Santa Lucia Festival. Every year the Student Union also sponsors a Christmas party where gifts are given to faculty members by " Santa Claus. " Later, the candlelight service by the Chapei Choir celebrated the prophecy and coming of Christ as shown throughout the Rible. Particularly for the dorm stu- dents is the Inter-dorm Parly which had a record attendance this year. Various acts were pre- sented by the dorms, from a beat- nik rendition of the " Night before Christmas " to a chorus of girls singing the well-known carols. A Christmas gift for you and you and you and you from the bag of St, Nick. Then Dr. Stanger presented the story of the gifls of the Magi, after reading the story of Christ ' s birth. The individual dorms also have Christmas de- votions led by the students. At dawn the morning before everyone leaves for home, Polyhymnia comes through the dormitories caroling the birth of Christ in an angelic chorus. As the girls pass through the halls, sleeping students awake, lie quietly, or open their doors to listen. When day comes, there is the hustle and bustle of last minute preparations to return home and to celebrate Christmas with the family. Andy receives a Christmas gift from the men of Irion Hall. M I Tell us about it, old man Church Vocations For all those interested in investigating the possibilities of applying Christian beliefs to their chosen vocation, a new organization, the Church Vocations group has been formed this year. The purpose of the group is to explore the areas open to those interested in church work, and to relate Christian beliefs in a significant way in other areas of life. This deals with the problems of truly liv- ing Christian principles in everyday life. The group is lead by a steering committee con- sisting of two members from each class and a fac- uly advisor. The present group is an outgrowth of the Pre-the and Christian Education Society of previous years. Throughout the year, in keeping with the pur- pose. Church Vocations presents a variety of pro- grams open to all students including speakers, dis- cussions, movies, and tours.

Campus Christian Fellowship is open to all stu- dents, who may join any of its four commissions in order to promote an active concern about the relevance of Christianity in their lives as students and faculty. In keeping with this purpose the World Relatedness Commission ' s purpose is to create an awareness of problems of world society today and to answer them as a Christian. The Christian Heri- tage Commission presents programs to help mem- bers realize what their Christian heritage is. The third Commission is the Social Responsibility Com- mission which investigates modern social problems in light of Christian beliefs. The fourth, the Per- sonal and Campus Affairs Commission, works with the campus fellowship, activities, and programs of interest to the campus as a whole.

Retreat The Retreat is an annual event sponsored by the Campus Christian Fellowship during the semester break after exams are over and before the new semester begins. This year the retreat was held at Green Lake, Wisconsin, at the American Baptisi Assembly, where the retreaters had a whole hotel to themselves. The theme chosen for the retreaters ' discussions was " Does the Bible still speak, ' ' to give students some insight into the Bible ' s relevance for the present day Christian. After the retreaters got acquainted and went on the traditional midnight hike Sunday night, Mon- day morning they went to a lecture and discussion on international affairs, and then in the afternoon a discussion of national affairs as related to their theme. In their free time they went sledding, ice skating, and hiking. Monday night a huge bonfire was built on the lake and retreaters stayed out till the wee hours of the morning. The high point of the retreat came in the last activity, Tuesday, when they held a communion service where everyone sat at a long table and broke bread from a large loaf. Early that afternoon they headed back to the college, ready to begin the new semester. And music drifted across the clear night air. Green Lake, Wisconsin The discussions really became involved and perplexin Men ' s Intramurals The men ' s intramural program, under the direction of the athletic chairman of the Student Union, is designed to offer a program of athletic competion for those who are not engaged in intercol- legiate sports .The program varies with the season; football in fall, basketball during the winter months, and baseball in the spring. Also included in the spring is an intramural track meet with the four classes competing against each other. All in all, the intramural pro- gram offers a chance for men to release all the extra energy left over from studying. In the Fall, the program got its start with football. Six teams participated in this sport with the Pie Omegas emerg- ing as victors. It was a relatively hard struggle with most of the teams being evenly matched. Winter came and so did intramural basketball. The gym rang with the bounce of basketballs as the men en- tered into tough competition. The Un- touchables proved worthy of their name as they romped through the sea- son with an undefeated record. Then came Spring and the intra- mural baseball season. This year there was formidable competition from two sides, on the baseball field and from the weather. Many of the games were played in a temperature that was far below average. The Untouchables again proved their ability to remain champ- ions as they wound up the season with another undefeated record. In a post season game, they were defeated by the all star team, comprised of the best players from the other teams. The intramural track meet was run off, giving men an opportunity to par- ticipate in the various events. Sympathy is extended to those who ran the two mile. Intramurals were a success this year with many of the men as active partici- pants. Hp ■ Mm mmm Women ' s Intramurals The intramural program for women, sponsored by the Women ' s Union, en- joyed one of its most successful seasons this year. The program was expanded to include participation by more of the dorm and town co-eds. The greater num ber of co-eds participating in intra- murals meant that the gym was more in demand. Due to a lack of facilities many volleyball and basketball games were played during rehearsals for theatre productions. The theatre crews especially objected to this arrangement for actors ' lines were barely audible over the screams and shouts of protest and glee in close games. Besides ex- panding the number of participants in intramurals two new sports were added to intramural competition. These two sports were ping-pong and baseball. The intramural year began with a round robin competition in volleyball; twelve teams competed for the title of volleyball champs. The sophomores emerged victorious. Attention next shifted to basketball. Here again round robin competition was followed, and the sophomores emerged victorious. Many men on campus would spend their evenings at the gym watching with astonishment the attempts of the co-eds to play a good basketball game. Many of the games were played haphazardly but each girl did her utmost to help her team win, even if it meant fouling out or falling on one ' s opponents. The competition in badminton was keen, and the senior combination of Judy Gass and Sally Young became the EC badminton doubles champs. Spring arrived and with its arrival women ' s baseball competition hit the college. Teams were formed and the girls eagerly swung into competition. Throughout the year, matches of doubles in ping-pong were being played and once again a sophomore combina- tion was the champion. All the intramural games were char- acterized by lots of fun and many bruises as each girl played her best. The Chapel Choir One of the highlights of college years for a number of Elmhurst College students is the opportunity to sing in Chapel Choir. The Choir consists of approximately forty members who, under the direction of Dr. T. Howard Krueger, prepare music to sing in the college chapel services, in concerts in the surrounding Elmhurst area, and in the concerts which are sung on the annual spring tour. The selection of music this year ranged from music written in the thirteenth century up to modern time. One of the major works prepared was Johann Sebastian Bach ' s " Jesu Meine Freude. ' 1 During tour, the Choir members have the opportunity to inform prospective stu- dents and others about Elmhurst College and to join many church congregations in worshiping God through song. This year Choir toured parts of Illinois. Indiana, Ohio, Virginia. Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Among the churches visited was an inter-city church, a new mission church, and a rural church. The officers of Chapel Choir this year are Paul Westermeyer, president; Edwin Hoefer, vice-president; Ellen Rasche, secretary-treasurer; Dennis Stock, business manager; and Robert Randall, assistant business manager. Donna Fitch, Patricia Kroll, and Paul Westermeyer are the assistant directors, and Dianne Reschke is the accompanist.

Lecture Series The eighth annual lecture series, sponsored jointly by the Student Union and the College chose the theme. Communications in a Free Society. The lectures in the morning and the discussions in the afternoon considered the roles of the newspapers, television, and the stage in molding taste, opinion, and values in American life; their responsibility to the society of which they are a part; and the kinds of contributions they can make to its pro- gress. Mr. Tom F. Driver, contributing editor and drama critic for the Christian Century, a member of the faculty of Union Theological Seminary, and author, opened the 1961 Lecture Series. His lec- ture, " The Tongues of Men and Angels: Truth. Power and Love in the Act of Communication - " gave a general perspective to the theme. 76 Mr. Douglass Cater, Washington editor of The Reporter Magazine, contributor to the New York- Times Magazine and author, addressed his audi- ence on " The Press as a Fourth Branch of Govern- ment " . Mr. Cater is respected both as a serious analyst of the American press and as a practicing reporter and editor. The Television and Radio critic for the Chicago Sun-Times, Mr. Paul Molloy, lectured on the sub- ject " Television, Friend or Foe " . He has produced more than sixty radio and television programs, and he has written his first book which will be pub- lished next summer. He is the 1960 winner of the National Headliner Award as the nation ' s out- standing TV-Radio critic. The final lecturer, Mr. Harold Clurman, is one of the most distinguished names on the contemp- orary theatrical scene. His lecture concerned " The Theatre in American Society " . He has directed numerous plays, served as theatre critic for many magazines and is the author of three books. 77 1 1 i:l 1 Theatre The Elmhurst College Theatre and the Elmhurst College Theatre Guild, the auxil- iary organization to the Theatre, are two very active organizations on campus. The E. C. Theatre presented four major theatre productions this season under the direction of Mr. C. C. Arends. The first production, Olga From The Volga, was an original musical comedy written by four students, Gretchen Scherzer, Robert Cetera, Rose Ann Lemark. and Douglas McVey with the help of Mr. Arends. Walter Snad- ner and Frank Morgan. This Homecoming show told the story of Olga, the Russian Amazon, and how she finally brought a winning streak to the E. C. football team. Her downfall however, was her dimple. She fell in love and that was the end of that. One of the highlights of the show was a trio known as the Development Boys who wanted " crisp money, cool money, green money, money-money. " The second production was George Kelly ' s satire of " Dramatics " The Torch- Bearers given December 8, 9, 10. The play dealt with the activities of Mrs. Pampinelli and her " elite " drama group and their re- hearsals and humorous presentations of their " play.

Mark Bucci ' s The Dress and George Klinsinger ' s and Joe Darion ' s Archy and Mehilabel were the next feature attractions given March 2, 3, 4. The Dress told of a dress, naturally, a lost key without which the dress could not come off, and a husband who returned home unexpectedly. Archy and Mehitabel was a " back-alley opera " ' about the writing of Archy, a cockroach poet, and the toujours gai activity of his cat-friend Mehitabel, the Queen of Shin- bone Alley. The last production of the season was Maxwell Anderson ' s romantic drama Eliza- beth the Queen presented April 13, 14, 15. The play was the story of Elizabeth and Essex, their love and quarrels, their trials and separations. In addition to the regular four produc- tions the Theatre in association with the Theatre Guild presented four Studio Theatre Productions. These productions were for the purpose of offering twice the number of acting opportunities otherwise available and of discovering new talent on the campus. The plays were directed by members of the Theatre Board and in- cluded " Pantomimes " directed by Mr. Garry Colburn; Saroyan ' s Hello Out There directed by Mr. Frederic Curry; The Riv- alry by Norma Corwin, directed by Mr. Donald Low; and The Little Prince by Antoine DeSaint-Exupery, directed by Miss Frances Lohr. The Theatre and Theatre Guild are organizations which need leaders. In order to be a member of the Guild a year ' s ap- prenticeship under the leadership of the Vice-President is necessary. During the first year the title of " Guppy ' " is given each prospective member. All of the crews. . .lights, costumes, props, sound, scenery, publicity, and make- up all have important jobs to do for the Theatre and the Guild. 79 Theatre Guild Members: Row 1: Mr. Colburn, Bruce Carlson, Robert Cetera, Jack Dawson, David Field, William Kish, Steven Polcyn, Robert Panfil. Row 2: Mr. Arends, Gretchen Scherzer, Toni Haas, Betty Prokop, Marcella McLester, Eva Augustin, Mary Martin, Janet Brettman, Elizabeth Kloepping, Rose Anne Lemak. Row 3: Linda Heraty, Trina Dunne, Wendy Huntley, Donna Dent, Linda Thompson, Susan Voile. Row 4: Denis Galling, Philip Darling. The Theatre Guild is sponsored by Mr. C. C. Arends for those students interested in working on a production either as actors or backstage. Prospec- tive members begin as " Guppies 1 ' in the area of their choice, and remain so for a year, after which time they are accepted as members. This year " Guppies " were given an initiation and wore pla- cards with the initials of the Elmhurst College Theatre Guild on them. Each year officers are elec- ted, and the Guild works on settings for the college productions. Advisory Board : Dr. Low, Mr. Colburn, Mr. Curry, Mr. Arends, Chr. Cheerleaders In the fall the cheerleaders are selected from the group who wish to try out. Though the squad is open to anyone, only the best are selected after the practice sessions. Some practice even begins the spring before selec- tions are made — as everyone can tell from the groans and stiff muscles of the hopefuls. At the games both home and away the cheerleaders may be seen leading E C fans, urging the teams to victory. Even cheerleaders are led, though, and the captain of the squad this year is Ruth Young. The results of selec- tion and practice may be seen at the football and basketball games. The two requisites of the cheerleaders seems to be vocal volume and hand-clapping experience, not to mention high jumping! In the end it is practice that makes the difference, that and creating new cheers. Whether it is to make the squad or to keep those leaps, exercise is continual. Cheer- leaders may be seen in the recreation room of Dinkmeyer Hall or out in the mall working out so that, win or lose, they will do their best come the next game. Basketball The sooner the 1960-61 basketball season is for- gotten, the better off Elmhurst College will be, as the Jays tabbed a horribly disappointing 3-18 record. But even within this overall drab showing there were a few individual bright spots, promising work of Bill Sir and other freshmen, Moe Dobrow- ski ' s high field goal and free throw percentages, and Phil Hann ' s half court set shot at North Park. The season started off on the wrong foot with a loss to Lake Forest and pretty well stayed that way. The Birds took their first win the second game of the season, beating Rockford 62-48 on the strength of Dobrowski ' s 20 points. The Jays then embarked on a seven game losing streak, which, however, was not without its moments, such as the close losses to Illinois Wesleyan 64-57, Augustana 59-56, and North Park 66-58. The latter was followed by one of the season ' s four best games, a 59-57 loss to Concordia on the Jay ' s " home " court. The cagers finally broke the streak with a 52-51 victory over Whitewater in which the Jays failed to score a field goal in the last seven minutes but managed to hang on with free throws. Does he use springs ' : The Jays slumped even more during the last half of the season, as they found themselves down by hopeless margins time and again. The only bright spots were the other three " best " games, a 63-62 loss to Concordia, which the cagers sealed Basketball Squad: Row 1: Walter Lueder, Richard Darter, Richard Luzietti, Earl Collignon, William Sir, Lee Yunker, Steven Blischke. Row 2: Coach Blum, Steven Furman, Kenneth Riemer, Ralph Cooper, Phillip Hahn, Chester Dobrowski, Paul Kalkbrenner. Coach Schousen. up with 5 seconds remaining on a pair of free throws, an 81-78 overtime hearthreaker loss to North Central, and the 92-83 overtime victory over Millikin in the final game. In the final game Earl Collignon scored 37 points and pulled down 32 rebounds, both of which may be school records. The team will be hard hit this year by the loss of co-captains Earl Collignon and Rich Luzietti, who accounted for 705 of the 1224 points. Hopes for this next season rest upon continued improve- ment of sophomores Bill Sir (6 ' 6 " ) Ralph Cooper, and Paul Kalkbrenner: up-to-par years by veterans Lee Yunker, Walt Lueder, and Dick Darter; and a good crop of freshman. It ' s rougher than it looks. What do I do now? It ' s anybody ' s ball. It ' s my turn this time. Wrestling Squad: Roiv 1: Paul Rucker, James Leamon, Jeremy Baxter. Row 2. Robert Reinecke, William Anderson, Donald Frandsen. Wrestling Coach Langhorst coached wrestling on the varsity level for the third year. This year wrestling was recognized as a permanent varsity sport. Thirteen candidates attempted to better last year ' s record and the eight lettermen formed the nucleus of the squad. Having only four returning letterman, the Jays relied on freshman for many of the positions. Captain Bob Reinecke at the 147 slot was the anchor-man of the team. Two juniors, Paul Rucker, and Bill Ball, both two year lettermen filled the 177 and 130 divisions, respectively. Sophomore letterman, Jim Leamon wrestled in the 167 division. The coach also had several promising freshm an out for the squad. Dee Mott, as heavyweight, and Jerry Baxter, at 123, both had three years of high school experience. Both of these divisions had been sources of preseason worry to the coach. Marty Thomen, 147 pounds, had one year of high school experience while Dale Keller, 123 pounds, and Mike Martin, 137 pounds were new to the sport. Ugh! But I ' m trying! In the Spring Spring means Graduation Day A stepping stone of Life into The golden dreams of years of study, Work, and . . . yes ... of play . Yet Spring means more; it is the Junior Prom, Exams, and Going Home, and all the firsts: Warm days, first flower, and The slowly dripping Rain .... Mind, Heart, Life awaken to a dream of Spring. Of all poetry, the happiest, the most soaring poems seem to be written about love, and love, as everyone knows, is at its best in spring. Nature ' s face is brand new after a long winter. Spring is the reward for all the rest of the year, both for nature and the academic world. Spring is the setting for exams, for giving honors, and for receiving them, for campus queens and kings. Spring is happiness in circus merriment and just plain fun. It is winding up the old school year that somehow just got started. Judith Barnes, Karen Dorn, Diane Eddy, Queen, Charlotte Edinger. Record Jump Ell Court A new record in the high jump. Every spring for the last 27 years the college has sponsored the E.I.I. Track Meet, or the Elm- hurst Intercollegiate Invitational. T he competing colleges are invited to Elmhurst. The meet this year took place on a beautiful sunny clay in spring. Out on the football field a riot of colors representing the various schools blazed in all their splendor. Better than a circus, the athletes milled around waiting for their events, or waiting for the final results. The events include javelin and discus throwing, track, highjumping, broad jumping, and pole vault. As the events went on all around, the afternoon wore on until the trophies were given when all the events were over. In the midst of all the colorfully-clad athletes, the feminine half of campus made a showing, too, in the form of the E.I.I, queen and her court who were chosen from the Elmhurst Co-eds by the mem- bers of the " E " Club. This year the queen of the conference was lovely sophomore, Miss Diane Eddy. Track Events Track is, perhaps, one of the most popu- lar spring sports on the Elmhurst Campus. From the diversity of activity and events, one is bound to find something that especi- ally interests him. The color and excite- ment of a track meet captivates almost any student, whether he be in the stands or actively participating on the field. " Uncle Pete " Langhorst had his boys working at the first opportunity. Many a student will atest to the fact that runners were trotting around the quadrangle while the snow was still ankle deep on the track. The result was an excellent track team. Track is always a thrilling event to watch. Anyone who has not taken the time to watch the coordination of a runner in perfect stride as he rounds the turn of the track is missing something. In order to participate in any event, an athlete has to have perfect timing and coordination. A distance runner has to know how to pace himself accurately in order to have enough wind left for the finish. The short distance runners have to be able to get a quick start, while the hurdlers have to be able to space their strides in order to clear that next barrier. There is coordination required, almost to precision in both the high jump and the pole vault. To be able to clear the bar, whether it is six feet in the high jump or eleven feet in the pole vault is quite an accomplishment. Those who throw the javelin, discus, or shot also require a skill that is interesting to watch. The Bluejay thinclads had a good season this year. In the smaller meets, the track- men had more difficulty, but in the larger meets, they met with considerable success. The Jays placed high in the Elmhurst In- tercollegiate Invitational Meet in the small school division and placed second in the First .Annual Independent College Track Meet, losing first place by just 3Vi points. This track meet was an innovation of Pete Langhorst, the first time a meet of this nature has been held. Much credit goes to those men who participated in track this year for the time they spent in practice and actual competition.

This organi- zation is designed especially for those who have earned a letter in a sport, but entrance every year traditionally involves an initiation. This year in- itiates more resembled the fairer sex than their usual masculine selves, though all the girls agreed they did have a certain air about them that made for a second look.

Tennis Elmhurst ' s 1961 Tennis Team encountered a season of needed experience. The record will show a total of three matches won and six matches lost, but the heart of the season was a 6-3 defeat of Illi- nois Wesleyan after a 9-0 reversal earlier in the season. A strong nucleus of returning lettermen give hope to a winning season in 1962. Returning in 1962 will be Dave Naefl, Han Soo Oh, Ted Esse- baggers, and a freshman who shows great promise Bill Sir. Other returning lettermen include Bob Hughes and Larry Frank. The lack of Elmhurst tennis courts will again prove to be a handicap t j the tennis team. Despite this handicap Coach C. C. Arends expects to have a winning season next year with the asset of experience to provide the winning margin for the basically sophomore team. What grace, what form, what style! It ' s all in the arm movement. Two heads are better than one. 91 Baseball Team: Row I: David Baur, Richtrd Winkleman, Chester Dobrowski, Ralph Cooper, Steven Rex, Howard Lindberg.

Baseball Baseball, the national sport, is also an active sport on the Elmhurst campus. When spring was in the air. the men were out on the diamond, sharpen- ing their batting eye and practicing their fielding. Pitchers and catchers had been working out al- ready in the colder weather in the gym. The result was a unit that functioned as a team. The Bluejay sluggers faired well this season with a winning record, the first in several years. Coach Schousen ' s boys were ready and able to meet their competition. Able fielding and hitting combined with the more than capable pitching staff brought the Bluejays to the position of a formidable op- ponent for any team they faced. The Jays ' compe- tition was not the easiest, but the record shows they were able to come out on top. All in all, the team had an excellent season. Ready The pitch. Swing. The Duffers: Coach Owen, Ronald Rierner, James Larsen, Robert Nikodem, Robert Hammer!, Edward Shevehon, Kenneth Rierner. Golf The 1961 Bluejay golf team, under the direction of Coach " Spud " Owen, ended the season with an impressive record of 8 wins against 12 losses. Re- turning lettermen Ron Riemer, Jim Larson, Bob Nikodem, and Bob Hammerl, along witb new- comers Ken Riemer and Ned Shevelson formed this year ' s squad which averaged 88.87 strokes per match. The high point of the season was the upset of highly regarded Lake Forest by the slim margin of 9% points to 8% points for the Foresters. In- dividual honors were accorded to Jim Larson on being elected as most valuable; Ken Riemer on winning the annual putting trophy; and Ron Riemer for his 3 under par buzzard. Only one year ago the linksters were unable to win a single match; which makes this year ' s improved record all the more outstanding. Cons : stent golf by all the members of the squad made the 1961 Bluejay goli season truly a team effort. The stance is right, now the swing. Out on a limb for this shot. But 1 didn ' t tee the ball. Giving money to worthy causes can be fun as the students of Elmhurst College found out during Campus Chest Week. The goal this year, a full tuition scholarship for a foreign student, was more than adequately met. Next year, the students of Elm- hurst will see the fruits of their efforts, for a foreign student from the Near East will be on campus. Students this year found it fun to give in return for what they received. Those who had ever had trouble with their own cars found they could take their animosity out on a car with a sledge hammer, provided for them by the committee, for a small donation of course. This event drew many people who wished to release their frustrations. Those who had artistic talent found an outlet for their ability in painting house numbers on curbs, this, too, for a donation from the towns Campus Chest The artistic touch. Woodsman, spare that tree. A hot tune. Those legs with those faces? Look what I bought. people. It ' s hard to determine which received the most paint, the curb or the painter. In any event, many of the curbs around Elmhurst are now decor- ated with their house numbers. A variety show, featuring the finest talent oJ Elmhurst College, was presented for the entertain- ment of the student body. Musical numbers, a comedy routine, and a classic dance were the fare for the night. Climaxing the week ' s activities was the auction. A variety of articles and services were auctioned to the student body, including the privilege of shaving off the courageous Dr. Barclay ' s bushy, eight month old beard. Bidding was at a high pitch as auctioneer Ray Miller brought forth each item. Opportunities were also given for students to make individual contributions to the Campus ChesL Drive. Master of demolition. Not me, the car! Did anyone survive: Women ' s Union Women ' s Union Officers: Dorothy Gewecke, Joyce Chum, Verna Schaefer, Judith Frobel, Dr. Wellington, Carol Sutter, Jane Radspieler, Verla Kistner. Organized to provide activities for all women students is the Women ' s Union, which is active in many areas of campus life. The fall ot each year officers are elected from the women students. In 1960-61 the officers were Dorothy Geweche, presi- dent; Joyce Chum, vice-president; Judy Frobel; secretary; and Jane Radspieler, treasurer. Traditional activities are planned each year. ant the most actively participated event is the Co- rnells Union Circus which takes place to provide some fun for orphans and underprivileged children. and incidentally, for the students, too. who act as parents for the evening. For the sports minded coeds Women ' s Union sponsors a women ' s intramural program in softbali, basketball, volleyball, and ping pong. While some are tossing the balls around, others are interested in making plans, among them those for the annual Women ' s Union Christmas Tea, a formal tea for all women on campus, including faculty wives as well as students. Traditionally at the tea Christmas carols are played on the piano while tea is poured. The The receiving line aivaits the guests. Fresh strawberries are really tops for breakfast. Christmas atmosphere pervades as the decorated tree glows and outside the snow sifts down from leaden skies. Not tea but breakfast is supplied in spring when the Women ' s Union Strawberry breakfast is held. Here the girls gather and nibble on strawberries from huge pans. Rolls, coffee, and milk round out the meal which was followed this year by an orig- inal " ballet, " " The Lady Takes A Strawberry. " Also at this breakfast the awards of letters and pins are given, earned through participation in the W. U. activities. To round out the meals courses, each fall the Union also sponsors a picnic, for all women on campus, games and entertainment a la picnic style are planned to open the year ' s activities of sports and events. Candidates for the court are individually presented. II 1 Co-Ed King and Queen A traditional event on campus is Bachelor ' s Holi- day during which time the girls do a change-about with the boys, opening doors, carrying books, and carrying lunch trays for their chivalrous fellow students. The theme this year was Mardi Gras, with a dance theme of " Mardi-Gras Mood. " As the girls called for their dates and picked up the tab later, the dance, too, was a turn-about, at which the king of Mardi Gras, chosen from the male students by the girls, was presented. Earlier. Thursday night, the boys were serenaded by the girls, who came out in a record number with masks and head dresses and a gamboling leader in shocking pink, a plump, mysterious sprite in the Mardi-Gras mood. Friday evening was a mixed swim and an informal get-together in the Student Union Lounge. 9!; Circus What is a circus? A circus is laughter; a circus is wide-eyed children and gamboling clowns and side-shows and a big top. Add a liberal portion of merry-making, a handful of glee and a dash of good old fashioned wonderment, and a circus is underway. What a circus? The campus knows. The glow in the children ' s eyes, the pleasure of giving to other less fortunate people, leaves them all, students and faculty and youngsters, with a warm glow. And that glow spreads not only to the participants. It is also known to those who work behind the scenes, to those who planned and labored to produce the circus. Say, there ' s a clown. Let ' s start the show! clown is a sign for laughter and gaiety from everyone.

" The setting was the Glendale Country Club, with music by Lou Browne and his orchestra and the Del Rene combo. A new feature was the buffet supper included in the bid price. While the juniors labored, the rest ol j the school anticipated the event. In some dorms, the formals hung away in September came out for a pressing.

After the crowning and the queen ' s dance, the prom went on with dancing and dining until the evening was late. 109 Elms Staff Another masterpiece emerges from the darkroom. Under the careful management of the editor, the college yearbook, the Elms, slowly takes shape. Be- ginning in September as what seems to be a monu- mental task that will never be finished, the pictures and copy start trickling in. content is planned, pages laid out, and somehow by the end of the year it is all put together into the 1961 Elms. How it becomes an entity all its own is known perhaps only to the faculty advisor Mr. Swords, and the editor. J. T. The photographers, the writers, the typists all contribute until the yearbook be- comes a sampling of the work of a student body, both of their activities and of their labors to record those activities. The result? A volume which will be thumbed through the years when students look back on their college days and all that happened all through this year 1961.

Glee Club The sound of deep men ' s voices singing in har- mony is a thrill indeed. Dressed in navy-blue jackets and grey slacks the men in Glee Club have the oldest organization on campus, for it was be gun in 1894. Though designed especially for the men, Glee Club like the other two singing groups is a volun- teer organization. The music that is sung is both secular and sacred. Each spring all the singing groups go on tour to various parts of the United States; this year Glee Club went to the southwest and midwest. During the major part of the year Glee club members spent their time practicing, giving local concerts, and serenading the girls ' dorms — oblig- ingly keeping their eyes turned as curler-studded heads take a peek. In spring Glee Club presented a much anticipated concert in assembly, while in- dividuals of the group presented solos and sang in a barber shop quartet at various functions on campus, including the Campus Chest drive and Wo- men ' s Union Strawberry Breakfast. . . 112 Support those tones! What?!? Ladies don ' t drink? Since 1884, the Men ' s Glee Club of Elmhurst College has been bringing pleas- ure and inspiration to audiences throughout the country. The young men who appear before you today, and their alumni predecessors, have sung in the tiniest rural communities and on the nation ' s most powerful radio networks spreading the word of Elmhurst College far and wide. They and the members of the Elm- hurst College Chapel Choir and Elmhurst ' s Polyhymnia (the Women s Glee Club), share in providing music for the regular chapel services on campus as well as for other college activities. There are no rewards other than the satisfactions which accrue from per- forming works of the great masters of music and the strong bonds of fellowship welded D through working together toward a common goal. Membership is open to anyone who can meet the requirements of dedication and scholastic eligibility. Four and one half hours each week are devoted to rehearsal, and much addi- tional time is given to the presentation of concerts throughout the school year, both on and off campus. The Glee Club is self-governing. Through its own student officers and manage- ment it arranges its own concert schedule, itinerary, transportation and fi- nancial dealings. Items such as advertising and publicity are handled entirely by its own personnel, and the only faculty participation is advisory, with the ex- ception of musical direction. Members provide their own uniforms and all articles of clothing necessary, and their continuing membership is determined by their ability to maintain their academic status and their sincere desire to work together. Members who appear as soloists are chosen by the director through competitive audition. . .

Dr. Schade makes the assignment ; work begins Photo Essay on Study Fall, winter, or spring there is one activity thai is ever present, year after year, at desks, in the library, the S.U., and its lounges; it is found a common sport of all college students, in fact, study. In almost any position — try a dorm almost any night — students will be found preparing tomorrows- assignments. Some seek out good light, a soft couch, or a rug; some durl around a chair; a deep silence prevails as the student absorbs the printed pages through notes from texts, underscoring a book, or a photographic memory. Some attempt osmosis. The result? They all hope the material shall ultimately be transfered from the mute page to some portion of their mind, tagged, initialed, and filed away for future use. The librarian is always willing to lend as ssistance. 114 The books are check ed out and study begins in earnest. The Test: was there enough studying done? 115 Everything is ready for the presentation of scholarships. Honors Day All through the year they worked and labored and the end seemed far away, and so it was. Labors are never in vain, as they found, for their efforts were rewarded soon in various ways, known only to themselves, perhaps. Still, secret is not always the ease, and there are those who are openly ac- claimed for their efforts here at Elmhurst. Such acknowledgment is. of course, fitting and proper, and so it is proper that a certain day be set aside for the recognition of these efforts. Each year the second Sunday in May, which is Mother ' s Day, is set aside for Honors day. This im- portant event is designed to honor those students who have received awards and scholarships for their work during the school year and for continu- ing that work next year. This year the sun shon " brightly as the campus put on a new face for the many parents and visitors who attend the ceremony and later take a tour of campus and dorms. Scholarships are awarded for both academic and extra- curricular excellence. The Elmhurst College Scholarships are awarded by Dr. Stanger. Dr. Arthur J. Mertzke was the surprised and proud recipi- ent of the Elms Dedication for 1961. In the ceremony numerous scholarships are given, the winners of the Shick Speech contest, and those nominated to Who ' s Who are recognized. In this finale for the year all the honors so well deserved were received in a program including music by both Chapel Choir and Polyhymnia. W. R. S. E: W.R.S.E., the Wireless Radio Service of Elm- hurst, began a program of reconstruction this year which extended from their physical facilities to a change in programming, format and time. The student operated radio service of Elmhurst College was organized in 1947, making this the campus " youngest publication. The radio station, located on the second floor of Kranz Hall, serves the campus community. This year the station was managed by Director, Dave Knicker; Assistant Director. Al Pons; Busi- ness Manager, Guy Grasher; Sports Director, Ken Press; and Faculty Advisor, Dr. Donald Low. The many hours of scheduling, programming, and rehearsing which constituted Terry Riem ' s show were nationally recognized and rewarded by the national judges. His show. " Inside E.C. " was rated first place with a Yale University show by the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System. This honor and distinction has served as an incentive for a continuance of quality programming.

Who ' s Who Six outstanding seniors were selected as members of the national Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities this year. The six seniors, Eva Augustin, Sonja Conrad, JoAmi Tomsovic, John Pecoul, John Sallstrom and Dave Schlueter, were selected on the basis of four criteria, their scholarship, leadership, service, and character. In this way both aca- demic and extra-curricular life is taken into consideration by the two secret election committees appointed by the Stu- dent Union Cabinet. Election to Who ' s Who is a recognition of general ex- cellence in college life; elections are made from all seniors with a grade-point average of 1.8 or higher. Eva Augustin, Sonja Conrad, John Pe- coul, David Schlueter, Jo Ann Tomso- vic, John Sallstrom (not pictured). Who ' s Who Committee Chairman Ann Finkle, Frank Dietz. Elmhurst College Elmhurst, Illinois OFFICE OF HE PRESIDENT To the Members of the Class of 1961 Dear Seniors: My first word to you is one of congratulations and good wishes on the completion of your course at Elmhurst College. These four years on the campus represent one of the most significant experiences of your life. At the time of graduation we are able to see our course in perspective. You have become a part of Elmhurst, and Elmhurst, we trust, has become a part of you. Your education in the liberal arts and in Christian values has given you a broad background and a keen training. We wish you joy and fulfillment in the next phase of your experience. For some of you this means the graduate school, for others the world of business or the professions. Whatever it may be, we hope that you will look upon it as an opportunity for growth and for service. You will be enrolled among the alumni of Elmhurst College. We welcome you to this group. In this day of new demands upon the colleges, with the pressure of increasing enrollments, we ask you to continue your interest in the cause of higher education in general and of Elmhurst in particular. The small, privately supported college faces great challenges and great problems in the years ahead. We recognize that our alumni are our greatest asset as we face these concerns. We hope that you who have received a college education at Elmhurst will help to guarantee the continuance of this opportunity for those who come after you. As Elmhurst now faces its " Decade of Development " , looking towards our Centennial in 1971, we ask for your loyalty and cooperation. The prayers and good wishes of the faculty and the administration of Elmhurst College accompany you, the members of the Class of 1961, on your onward way. Robert C.

This was direc- ted at the Senior lovelies who comprised the hula dance team of Richard Schnelle, Richard Brandon, Bill Panici, Erik Hagen, Charlie Krieohelt, and Ken Hensiek. Thus the entertainment for the Senior Dance had its kick-off. Also featured in this once omy regalia of entertainment were Gretchen Scherzer, poetry reader of sorts, and Lhe singing group of the year: Gail Twilbeck, Joan Schlueter, Joan Helmers, Verla Kist- ner, Judy Scheu, Ann Temple, and Dorothy Gewecke. These acts were the best from the previous years of college. As the year reached its conclusion, the seniors were engaged in many activities Recognizing the seniors, the last Chapel session of the year was designated as Senior Chapel. At this time, the Senior class joined together for the last worship service of their college career. During the days after final examina- tions were over, the Class of 1961 partici- pated in several other activities. There was the Senior Tea at President Stanger ' s home, to which all were invited. On a pleasant Sunday afternoon the Seniors mingled for the last time with the members of the administration and class advisors. At the Alumni Banquet, the Senior Class enjoyed a delicious meal of prime rib. After the meal, entertainment was pro- vided by talented members of the class. Dr. Frank E. Myers, Associate Laboratory Di- rector for Education at Argonne National Laboratories addressed the group. Work-day gave the Seniors an oppor- tunity to beautify the campus for their out-door graduation : such things as sweep- ing the driveways and whitewashing rocks ; the campus was considerably improved. One fine morning, during Senior Week at 7:00 A.M., the senior men in Lehmann Hall were rudely awakened by a musical invitation by the fairer members of the class. They extended a challenge for an illegal softball game in the mall. The more hardier members of the males responded, and the game was played with the stronger but sleepier of the species emerging as victors. The fine spirit of the Class of 1961 will long be remembered on the Elmhurst College campus. f£3S J 1 ■a Graduation and Baccalaureate Cap and gown and solemn tread. For most of them this is the third graduation exercise they have participated in. How much more this one seems is realized only when the sacrifices made and the labor of years that go into a bachelors degree are listed one by one. All through this year and for years past ihese students have worked to reach this, their goal. The day? June 4th, a proud day, held in the mall, they hope, from which the chapel spire and the familiar buildings may be seen circling the sunken gardens. Overhead is a blue sky and in front are the speakers and diplomas. Yes, it is a proud day, but it is only the beginning. The college and the world salute all the grads who will be step- ping out to help others achieve fulfillment of life. • S S 5? ft? ; J «. ..; $5 . r. 5!
