Rawls, graduates of Elon College. They have served her faithfully and ardently. Dr. Rawls is an active member of the Board of Trustees and an outstanding benefactor of the college. Mrs. Rawls is loved by all those connected with the school for her helpful interest. We deem it a privilege to dedi- cate our Annual to these staunch Christians. D [JU iin Dr. and Mrs. J. E. Rawls D This edition of the Phipsicli presents to you a record of one year of " history in the making " . Many things which seem insignificant at the moment of occurrence have a way of eventually finding their way into history books. It is probable that the activities herein covered will never startle a busy world in years to come. But it is our hope that this book will serve a vital function in furnishing the history books of memory which will become a possession of Elon College students and faculty members. msun conTEnis Book I COLLEGE Book II CLASSES Book III ATHLETICS Book IV ACTIVITIES u or)k.Cm L COLLEC The Phipsicli A BRIEF HISTOMY OF ElON COLLEGE An extraordinary session of the Southern Convention was held at Graham, N. C, in 1888 for the purpose of ratifying a lease for the church on Graham Normal College. This institution, which had its beginning before the Civil War, was then in the hands of Dr. W. S. Long. Finding its equipment inadequate, the convention elected a board to select a suitable location, erect necessary buildings, and secure a charter from the state. The members of the board were: Dr. W. S. Long, Dr. J. P. Barrett, Col. J. H. Harden and Dr. G. S. Watson. Having visited all the places proposed as possible locations, the board met at Mill Point, Dec. 20, 1888, and decided to accept the site offered there — a beautiful oak grove. The campus is the gift of Mr. W. H. Trollinger, of Haw River, N. C. The people of the community subscribed four thousand dollars. The General Assembly of North Carolina chartered the college on March 11, 1889. Just two months later the first dirt was dug for the foundation of the first building. The college opened its doors to students Sept. 2, 1890. The first president was Dr. W. S. Long. Dr. J. U. Newman came with Dr. Long from Graham College, and has continued his service to the college from the first day to the present. The original plant consisted of the Administration ' Building and the East Dormitory, although neither was completed at the opening. In the early years the young men lived Page Ten 1937 The Phipsicli on the third floor of the Administration Building and the young ladies occupied East Dormitor} ' . Rev. W. W. Staley, of Suffolk, Va., succeeded Dr. Long as president in 1895 and served as non-resident president for eleven years, with Dr, Newman as his dean for nine years and Dr. J. O. Atkinson, the other two years. Upon Dr. Staley ' s resignation in 1906, Dr. E. L. Motfitt became president. During his administration West Dormitory and the Power Plant were built, and light, heat, and water were provided. Dr. Moffitt resigned in 1911, and Dr. W. A. Harper, then a member of the faculty, was elected in his place. His first project was the raising of the Alumni Building fund, generously donated by Elon Alumni. The boys ' dormitory and gymnasium were erected in 1913. His second project was to get Elon accredited. This was accomplished in 1915. In 1919 Dr. Harper undertook to raise the S125,000 standardization fund as per- manent endowment for the college. The culmination was a fund of $380,000. Other buildings added to the campus during these years were: the Ladies Hall, the Men ' s Club, the West End Hall, and the Laboratory Building (known now as the Publish- ing House) . Early in the morning of January 18, 192S, the Administration Building, nucleus of all college activities, was burned to the ground. This fire proved a real challenge to the constituency and friends of Elon College. The challenge was nobly accepted, and a building program was launched immediately. Page Eleven 1937 The Phipsicli The citizens of Alamance County, led by Col. R. L. Holt, of Burlington, N. C, came to the rescue by pledging $100,000 for a new administration building. The Carlton family — Mr. L. E. Carlton, Mr. H. A. Carlton, Mr. P. J. Carlton, and Mrs. T. S. Parrott — always staunch friends of the college, donated a splendid new library building. Messrs. ]. B. and B. N. Duke, sons of Artelia Roney Duke, who was born in Ala- mance County, paid fitting tribute to the memory of their mother by donating the Duke Science Building. Among many others, Hon. William Frank Corwith gave generously to the college. Mr. J. M. Darden made possible the building of Whitley Memorial Auditorium. Mr. Michael Orban, of Whittier, California, erected the Mooney Religious Educa- tion Building in memory of his father-in-law. Rev, Isaac Mooney. The sole purpose of this building was to train men and women in Religious Education. The third floor is equipped for an integrated and graded Church school program. This building is said to be the only one of its type on a liberal arts campus. So, out of the ashes there arose a new Elon — five buildings in place of one, all fire- proof, completely adequate, and beautiful. Elon was admitted into the Southern Association of Colleges in 1926. Following President Harper ' s resignation in 1931, Dr. L. E. Smith, Pastor of the Christian Temple, Norfolk, Virginia, became president. Elon, like all other institutions, suffered during the recent financial depression. Elon lost her membership in the Southern Association of Colleges in 1932, but the literary approval remained the same. Parallel with the improvement of the economic situation of the Southland, President Smith has been able to reduce substantially the indebtedness of the institution. At the same time, the student body has materially increased.

" If it be a geyitleman and a scholar ye seek, ye have found him. " Quiet, unassuming, studious, and capable is Wayne: the type of fellow who registers for a purpose and an ideal. Wayne has been with us a short two years, but in that time we have learned to respect him as a scholar and a true gentleman.

" Rare compound of quality, noble and true. With plenty of sense and good humor, too. " Louise is characterized by her continual worry over whether or not she ' s passing her work.

Within " Johnny ' s " being may be found one character- istic of leadership which is seldom found in any one man, this being the fact that he has made a success both as a Christian gentleman and a thoroughbred sportsman. He was pres- ident of the Y. M. C. A. and at the same time captained Elon ' s floormen through many a triumphant battle. May his ambitions match his ability.

" God made a heart oj gold. Shining and sweet and true: Gai ' e it a home of fairest mold, Blessed it and (ailed it you. " " Ah. she ' s sweet. " That was the ardent, half-whispered sentiment voiced by an impor- tant member of the annual staff when we said. " What will we write about Margaret? " Those who know her realize that such an opinion is not confined to one or two persons ; instead, it is honestly .shared by many. Her willingness to do her part in any undertaking is another of her outstanding characteristics. James Floyd Coble Route 1 Burlington, N. C. Day Student ' s Organization. " ;; the tool, sequestered vale of life. He keeps the noiseless terror of his tvay. " James is a type of a fellow who is destined to make something of himself through his own tireless efforts. He is not presumptuous, not hasty in his conclusions, not thoughtless con- cerning the good of others, a serious student, and not a " social tea-hound. " Above all, he realizes that college, although it offers a fellow the chance to broaden himself socially, is pri- marily an institution of learning. His daily work in the science laboratory cannot possibly help but reap vast rewards for him in his chosen life ' s work. Page Twenty-nine 1937 The Phipsicli E N I James Sion Cook, Jr. Graham, N. C.

" Optimism, hospitality, and industry charac- terize James. His aspirations are unsurpassed and his possibilities are incalculable, for with his spotless character, his ability to appreciate the best, and his ambitious nature, he cannot fail to succeed. Due to his enthusiastic, untir- ing efforts, it is perhaps fitting to climax this personal note with " Watch him grow! " James A. Edwards Route 1 Henderson, N. C.

" Jimmy, through his genial disposition, good nature, and unimpeachable character, is known and admired by the student body. He is a man of honest purposes and grim determina- tion. College life apparently has more joys for him, for whenever you see him he is the same cheerful Jimmy. Smilingly his greatest recreation is in " bumming " to Greensboro on week-end nights, at which time he is greatly in demand by a fair damsel in that vicinity. But who wouldn ' t " bum " with such a " cause " as his ? Page Thirty 1937 The Phipsicli S E N I O M S Eo ' iTHE Elizabeth Ernst 3139 Kinmont Avenue Cincinnati.

" To love and to he loved is the great- est happiness of existence. " Edy gives a new meaning to the word " fem- ininity " . Her sense of humor stands her in good stead on all occasions, her grace makes her a charming picture on the campus, and her dili- gence obtains high grades, with a pleasing, complete lack of complacency.

" A welcome companion in any company, a sociable chap in any society, and a valuable student in any professors classroom — that ' s " Charlie " . A woman ' s man possibly to some, but primarily a true friend to the fellows he knew and respected. Charlie came to our cam- pus, from Charlottesville four years ago and was immediately accepted as an asset to the school. As a freshman he couldn ' t be dared, as a sophomore he was still willing to learn, as a junior he was a lovable friend to all, and as a senior we hate to part with this ever- popular campus individual. May the best the world has to offer be graciously laid upon this Elonian as he steps out into the world. Page Thirty-one 1937 The Phipsicli S E N I Sarah Elizabeth Fowlks Yanceyville, N. C.

" The second-semester loss of Ina ' s combina- tion of beauty, good sense, and great good humor have created a void that cannot be filled, yet all of the many whom she calls friends are well aware of her never forgetting us, since a friend to her is a friend forever. Her unconscious desire to bring happiness to others has brought to herself a sweet content- ment and enduring satisfaction, as well as a knowledge of our keeping her in our hearts until the Senior Oak closes its place in Elon tradition.

Now, however, she is a familiar figure on the cam- pus always running here and there trying to help some one else. One frequently wonders how she can accomplish so much with only 24 hours in a day. Hilda is conscientious in all that she does. Ask some of the girls on the third floor of the ■West Dormitory how well she fulfills her po- sition as House President. The girls shall always remember her as the one who cheer- fully warns them that it is time to go to bed unless there is some important studying to do.

" Behold the student before whom the profes- sor and classmates bow. You cannot pass Leon without respecting him for his genial nature and fine personality. Leon hails to us from up in Jersey and is one of a picked few of our Yankee brothers graduating this year. Leon is ever available when help is needed by any of his fellow students, whether they be in financial or personal trouble, or if they need a guiding hand in their studies. Scientifically- mmded, individually serious in all of his con- clusions, Leon should some day be a great asset to dear old Elon. North Lewis West End, N. C. Class Basketball (1, 2, 3, 4); Track (1, 2) ; Boxing (1) ; Dramatic Club (4). " He who accomplishes most makes least noise. " North is the type who is never too serious, never too frivolou.s — enjoying fun and studies alike and never allowing one to interfere with the other. Polite, friendly, and congenial, he goes about on the campus, off the campus, in the classroom or wherever one meets him, and he is always the same. Whether North teaches school or goes into business he will undoubt- edly make a huge success. Page Thirty-eight 1937 The Phipsicli SENIORS William Loy Jacksonville, N. C.

" Bill is one of those versatile fellows who can adjust himself to any circumstance. He is one of those fortunate ones who is never ill at ease. To one who doesn ' t know him intimate- ly he always appears to be merely a carefree, optimistic sort of fellow, but investigation proves him to have a noble purpose and a de- sire to help others.

" It really isn ' t necessary to try to think of Varna ' s outstanding qualities for the purpose of placing them in this publication, because the subject herself doesn ' t care a great deal what any of us think about the matter; at least, that is the attitude which she would have us believe is hers. It is an independence born and bred in the wilds — beg pardon, the traffic laws — of Lumber Bridge. She is a true friend to those who meet with her approval, but she is also capable of violent dislikes. Her judg- ment is usually true. Go to ' Verna if you would have a true evaluation of any person on the campus. Sara Kaufman Neese 710 Davis Street Burlington, N. C.

" Her voice was ever soft, gentle, and low, an excellent thing in woman. " They say that Sara is hard to know, but all her friends are unanimous in declaring there ' s no one more generous, more understanding, more unique. Sara delights in arguments, but we believe her greatest charm is in her unex- pectedly, poignantly terse remarks that are spoken in her own inimitable way colored by the unmistakable sincerity behind them. Sara is primarily just, given no unnecessary words, and her ' determination is ever rewarded with success. Page Forty 1937 The Phipsic S E N I William Junius Neese Graham, N. C.

One can know his real worth and personality only by close association. He is a ministerial stu- dent of the first order and we understand that he is quite active in his home church in Bur- lington, N. C. He is a consecrated Christian gentleman, loyally and devotedly dedicated to his Master ' s cause. We feel, and rightfully so, that he is destined to do great things as an outstanding figure in the field of Christianity. Leon Stagg Newman ViRGiLiNA.

As a senior he has won the acclaim of his fellow students in his ca- pacity as president of the Student Senate, and that ' s a tough assignment for any normal per- son. ge Forty-one 1937 The Phipsic S E N I WOODROW W.

" He knows the true value of time: no idleness, no laziness, no procrastination. " Woodrow hails from back in God ' s country — eastern Virginia. He is admired by the cas- ual observer, but only those who have had the privilege of being associated with him know him as the sincere and dependable friend that he is. In his days at Elon he has made the most of himself. Included in his curricula are student offices and campus activities. His noble aspirations promise for him a glorious tomorrow in his life ' s work. CoNRADE La Verne Porterfield Haw River, N. C. Emerson Literary Society ( 1 ) ; Y. W. C.

" Luke has trodden the walks if Elon campus for four years, and his journey has been a pleasant one — not only to himself but to those who have walked with him, for to know Luke is to respect his friendship. He has served Elon well and in this, his last year, has cli- maxed his college career as president of the class of ' 37. Luke ' s greatest weakness was glaringly brought to his and other ' s eyes in his junior year when it was found that he, like a host of others of his sex, are susceptible to blondes. But he has learned his lesson and is thoroughly convinced that " All that glis- tens is not gold " . Clyde Wesley Rudd Elon College, N. C.

His life was gentle, and the elements o mixed in him that Nature might stand lip and say to all the iforld, ' This is a man! ' " " Bun ' always approaches his fellow students with a smile. His sincerity of heart and con- geniality have won him universal friendship. He takes up his work with a determination that means success. As a friend he is sociable and as an associate he is of great value. " Bun " , in this, his senior year, is honored with having been elected president of the student body.

He absolutely lacks the abil- ity seriously to worry over any mattei and shakes off petty misfortunes with a shrug of indifference. His greatest asset, to those who know him well, is his clever, natural wit, even though he is a quiet, unobtrusive fellow in public. We ' re looking for great things to come from Charlie.

L. E. is a hard worker, and very versatile. He is a sing- er, an artist, and a tennis player. Always gay, a good sport, a friend to all, L. E. is a real addition to the class of ' 37.

" H j reason f rm, a teinperale will: endurance, fo resight, strength, and skill. " Another quotation that would amply fill the bill for " Shorty " is found in the old adage, " The best of things come in small packages " . In his four short years at Elon, " Shorty " , in his quiet, unassuming way, has gained favor with professors and students alike, and has warmed his way into the hearts of all who have known him as a friend — and he has no ene- mies. Sincere in his work and sportsman-like in play, we of the class of ' 37 are looking for great things to come of this cherished new son of Elon. Blanche Wagoner Browns Summit, N. C.

Many a masculine heart beats just a little faster when Blanche pas.ses by. Although she has been with us only three years, she has become a favorite of both boys and girls. " Beautiful but dumb " cannot be applied to Blanche. Completing a college career in three years is a noble accomplishment for one so young as she.

He has his own convictions and will defend his opinion — always a good one — to the end. Walser is a natural-born leader among men, and anything but a follower when it comes to women. He was Elon ' s " pepper box " on the gridiron for four years, captain in his last. He has done well in his last year — even to taking unto him- self a girl-friend, but Rudy is distinctly not as yet a " rah ! rah ! boy. " Dan T. Watts Peachland, N. C.

He has the will to do something and be somebody, and he has succeeded. Dan has strong scientific inclinations and was biology lab instructor in his junior year. Incidentally this book itself is Dan ' s write-up and its theme his credo. It should live as a tribute to his tireless, unceasing efforts to procure for the class of ' 37 an annual that we shall be proud of for days to come.

C Page Seventy-iix = ==1937 I flTHLETI[5 Coach Douglas Clyde (Peahead) Walker, Elon Christians ' mentor, who ranks in the group of " iron men of athletics " may justly boast in his southern Alabama drawl of hav- ing coached athletic teams, which have won fourteen championships in seven years. Last season he directed the Christians to the leader- ship of the North State football league. Beginning with the formation of the North State conference in 1930 Coach Walker has won a championship in some sport yearly since. His stretch of wins is still underway with the winning of football and basketball titles this year. His North State championship record follows: 1930, football and baseball; 1931, basketball and baseball; 1932, baseball; 1933, football, baseball, basketball; 1934, football, basketball and baseball; 1935, football, basketball, and baseball; 1936, football; 1937, football and basketball. This record shows that Coach Walker has produced seven consecutive conference winning teams in 1933, 1934 and 1935. He was a three-sport man at Howard, Birmingham and Vanderbilt from 1917 to 1921. At Vanderbilt, Walker was under the training of Coaches Dan McGugin and Ray Morrison. Coach " Peahead " excelled in baseball, in which he was a heavy hitter. He put aside his professional career in 1926 when he went to A. C. C. as coach, to be lured away the following year by Elon. Ellis Fysal Assis ani Coach Pcige Seventy-eight FOOTBALL ' Rudy " Walser Captain Vale Goodes Half hack W.xDELL Taylor Amos Shelton Quarterback With the opening of fall practice the prospects of the 1936 football season were extremely promising. Thirteen regulars of the preceding year ' s squad had returned, together with an unusually large supply of good material from the new recruits. Pre-season practice on Comor Field revealed a formidable line, one of the heaviest ever to represent the college. A large number of seasoned linesmen made the formation of a forward wall comparatively easy. The tackles were James Day and Ben Hurst with Eddie Yurgaitis and Jack Fritts as substitutes. At the guard positions were the veterans Al Mastro and Hap Taylor along with Harry Kames, John Beaver and Al Gattis, as reserves. At the center position. Captain Rudy Walser, who had handled the job for three years again received the call. Archie Israel proved to be a very valuable understudy near the end of the season when Captain Walser was shifted to fill the vacancy at end. At end there was little worry. John Troppoli, Hal Bradley, Art Lea, a sophomore, who was later to win a varsitv post, after the loss of Trippoli and Schlitter. The backfield, too, presented no problem. James Abbitt, Joe Caruso, Amos Shelton and Yale Goodes, who had served on the 1935 championship team, were available, and from the new recruits had come Don Humphries, Al Naolie, Dave Goldfarb, Charles Engles and Charlie Pittman. Despite this wealth of material the season was an unhappy series of reversals. The record for the year numbered six victories, no ties and five defeats. The team played spasmodically, showing to better advantage against minor opposition, but playing less effectively against major opponents and against teams they should have defeated. However, after the season was completed it was shown on the books that the Christians had won the North State conference title for the fourth consecutive year. N. C. STATE Before a gala crowd of five thousand fans, the Elon Christians opened its 1936 campaign. The first half the Christians maintained a sturdy opposition, with a hard charging line which held the Wolfpacks in check. In fact, up to the closing minutes of the second quarter, the crowd was elated by the unexpected Christian defense. Suddenly with a tricky reverse, Ed Berlinske, State, Joe Caruso Halfback James Fritts Tackle Harry Kames Guard Dun HLMi-Hf Halfback Al Mastbo frimrrl Archie Israel Center made its only score of the first half. To compensate for this score Elon outplayed its strong oppo- nents for nearly the entire thirty minutes of the second half. Near the close of the third quarter, Ber- linski broke away for his second tally. The Christians were in scoring position three times, piercing the acclaimed State line with power plays, and overcoming their pa.ss defense with six completed aerials. James Abbitfs punts outdistanced the State kicks, and Walser ' s and Mastro ' s charging up- set the smoothness of the Wolfpack attack. Passes from Shelton to Bradley were constantly dangerous. The gradual evolving of a fast charging, confident, and cohesive football unit could be seen in this horrible 12 to defeat. WASHINGTON AND LEE Led by Wilton Sample, hefty fullback, Washington and Lee defeated Elon by the impressive score of 27 to 0, in the Christians ' second major of the season. Although Elon played hard football, they lacked the power to get through the General line, and were forced to resort to passes. The Generals, on the other hand, played a game marked by deception, speed and strength. Only twice did Elon penetrate into the foreign territory. Schlitter, Hurst, and Walser were outstanding in the Christian line, while Abbitt and Shelton stood out in the backtield. Sample, Carson and Dunlap were the stars for the Generals. GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY Elon met its traditional northern rival under a tremendous psychological disadvantage. The Christians, twice defeated, faced an eleven of national repute which had been lauded for its stalwart line, its tremendous power, and its potent passing attack. It was possible to play the defensive sys- tem of three bucks and a kick with the hope of holding down the score. Instead, Elon lashed back at the powerful Colonials with a new formidable double-wing attack that kept the stronger Wash- ington eleven fighting all the way in order to run the score to 38 to 0, 26 of these points being scored in the last half after the Christians were whipped down. Abbitt and Shelton, Mastro and Bradley led the Christians. John Beaver Guard SorLE Chandler HAt Watts Tackle Joe Padgett Guard WEST CHESTER TEACHERS COLLEGE After holding the favorite Teachers College to one touchdown in the first half, the Christians were repulsed in the final half bv a more aggressive eleven who converted all their breaks to tally 20 points. After injuries had handicapped Elon, the Teachers were able to run wild, scoring at will. The only bright spot of the Christians ' attack was the outstanding playing of Capt. Walser, Rabbit Abbitt, and James Day. When the sun had set the Christians had received their fourth defeat, 26 to 0. LA SALLE Traveling once more into Yankee territory, the Christians met an alert team from Philadel- phia, and returned once again on the short end of a 39 to 13 score. Early in the first quarter, La Salle recovered a fumble near the Christians ' goal line. A short flat pass to the right, and a short plunge gave the opponents a 6-0 score. It was in this same quarter that Elon scored on an unusual play. Line plunges carried the ball down to the Greenies ' 40 yard line. Shelton received the ball, and dropping back to permit his receiver to get clear, hurled the ball over the center of the line. A La Salle player, attempting to intercept, deflected the ball, which settled snugly into the arms of Hal Bradley, who sped the remaining twenty yards for a score. However, the line of Elon failed to halt the plunging backs of La Salle, and they ran the score to 39 before Abbitt, on a line plunge, ran, thirty yards to tally the last Elon score. This game marked the last defeat of the Christians for the 1936 season. APPRENTICE SCHOOL OF NEWPORT NEWS, VIRGINIA The only bright spot of the first quarter was the excellent playing of James Abbitt and Don Humphries, both later to figure in the first 1936 Elon victory. Staying deep into the Apprentice ter- ritory, the Christians were still unable to give it the extra added punch to place the ball over the goal . . . With four minutes to play Abbitt, on an end sweep, twisted free for the longest run of the Al XaEOLE JaMF.S BlTTS Al Gaydas Halfback End Guard Horace Brann ' on Llovd Early Guard Tackle Charles Pitmaxn Halfback game. Then, a thirty yard pass from Shelton to Bradley gave the Christians their only score of the game. The effort to convert the point after touchdown failed. Outstanding for Elon in this game was the play of Abbitt, Walser, Humphries, Caruso, Day, and Mastro. For the Apprentice, Spangler and Thomas. DUKE " B " Getting the jump on the Junior Blue Devils, the Elon Christians scored three touchdowns in the opening period before Duke B " realized they were in a football game. Pat Moran led the scoring in this initial period, tallying two touchdowns on short line bucks. Other players whose work was noteworthy were Charles Pittman, Al Neole, Don Humphries, and Amos Shelton in the backfield. The line play was featured by the excellent work of Archie Israel, Art Lea, Hap Taylor and Ben Hurst. The hot weather was undoubtedly responsible for a diminution of the Duke power as seen by the unusual number of substitutes on both sides. Elon, however, was definitely and undisputedy the master of the day as is noted by tne 51 points scored by the fast stepping and hard driving backs of the Christians. LENOIR-RHYNE COLLEGE Elon ' s Christians set sail on the turbulent North State sea and breezed home to a 38 to victory — their first conference game of the season and one step onward in winning their fourth consecutive title. Opening the game with a bang, the Christians marched straight down the field from the kick-off and scored the first touchdown of the game after only three minutes had been played. Abbitt plunged over after he placed the ball in scoring distance on several reverses. The Bears never threatened during the entire game. Rabbit Abbitt scored four touchdowns to lead the attack, ably assisted by Amos Shelton. The blocking, a highlight in the Christians ' victory, was featured by little Joe Caruso and Yale Goodes. Cecil Sigman and Buck Perry stood out for the Bears on the defensive. EMORY AND HENRY In perhaps the most startling upset of the Christians ' campaign, a team highly favored to take Elon in camp were set back by the hard working unit of ball players that Elon showed in this game. The first quarter demonstrated that Elon was determined to avenge the previous year ' s defeat. Bradley and Abbitt scored all the Christians ' 25 points in this, the last non-conference game of the season. The looming defeat moved the Emory and Henry players into action. When they finally started to click, the game was nearly over. GUILFORD COLLEGE Elon met its traditional rival in the Memorial Stadium at Greensboro on Turkey Day, which certainly was turkey for the Christians. Having their own way for the entire game, Elon marched to its second conference victory of the season at the expense of Guilford by the score of 39 to 0. The only thrilling play for the spectators was a ninety yard run by James Abbitt, all-conference full- back, in the third period. Captain Walser, who had played seven years of football, reached the dream of every ball player — he scored the first touchdown of his career on a forty yard pass from Amos She) ton. CATAWBA COLLEGE Desirous of ending the season with a victory, Elon entered the Catawba contest with a deter- mined, aggressive spirit. The first quarter dispelled any fear of defeat, for the team appeared to work cohesively and effectively. The Indian attack was neatly repelled, and at no time was it per- mitted to penetrate into the scoring zone. The Christians took advantage of several breaks in this period and scored two touchdowns in rapid order. In the second quarter the Indians, on well exe- cuted plays, marched slowly but surely to the Christians ' goal line, where they scored their first goal, and a few minutes later their second. Receiving the kick-off, the Christians, on a beautiful pass play, scored their third touchdown, to take the lead at the half. The second half was still Elon ' s, and the Christians ran the score to 3. in the fourtli quarter, winning the conference for the fourth straight year. BASKETBALL John Cameron CdpLiiii Robert Fowi.i r RiCHARn Cromlish Ed Potter Cf ' iiter Guard ASKETBALL " A good big man is better than a good little man " , so thought Coach " Peahead " Walker when he put a team on the court averaging close tO ' six feet, three inches tall. This was proven as the Christian team did nothing more than win the North State Conference Championship and only lost five games out of the twenty on their schedule. Because of the close race in the conference, it was no easy task for the basketeers to pull out on top. The team had its ups and downs during the season and could really play ball when the " going was tough " . With such offensive power as Paul Roye, Ike Fesmire, and Lloyd Whitley dropping the ball through the nets and with Hal Bradley, " Red " Cromlish and Capt. John Cameron (who dropped out of school in January), on the defensive end, the team could be referred to as one of the best ever to wear an Elon uniform. When substi- tuting was necessary, Abbitt and Odom were ready for the call and are to be highly commended for their work. The names of Longest, Potter, and McBrayer could not be left out because of their assistance in the making of this great team. Opening the season with their annual northern trip, the cagemen did very well winning hmi out of six games. The two losses were to two good teams, Washington and Lee, and to George Washington University, the former being the winner of the Southern Conference, and the latter being considered one of the best teams in the East. The Christians took St. Johns College of Annap- olis and Southeastern University into fold with little trouble but had to rally in the last few minutes to beat Randolph-Macon, ' Yellow Jackets " , and the Apprentice School of Newport News, Virginia. Starting the Conference games off with a bang, the basketeers walloped the Catawba " Indians ' , 52-28. A scrappy High Point team next came to Elon and beat the Christians, who ap- peared to have " choked " up and could not get their eyes on the basket. The final score was 30-21. The Elon ball hawks again came back into form against Atlantic Christian College — trouncing them 50-27. A highly confident Lenoir-Rhyne team came to our campus with good intentions of " pinning the ears " of the Christian aggregation back but were fooled when the local boys played one of the best games of the year, winning 42-38. " Yes sir! " , " Red " Cromlish was the star of this game. P.ige Eighty-six ASKETBALL Taking to the road, the cagemen had a close call against the Appalachian " Rippers " , when the Elon quintet eked out a 34-32 victory. The next stop was Hickory where the Lenoir-Rhyne " Bears " turned the tables on Elon, scoring a 38-32 win. The hoopsters had little to worry about when they walloped the Guilford " Quakers " and the Western Carolina Teachers 64-31 and 49-13, respectively. In a non-conference tilt with Wake Forest, the Elon five came close to winning, but were nosed out 43-31 in a hard fought game. The high point of the season for the Christians was the low point for the High Point, when the team and most of the school traveled to the Panther campus to encounter one of the best games in the history of the Conference. The game wasn ' t decided until the second extra period when the Elon team turned on their full power to tame the Panther five 45-40. Our freshman forward, Whit- ley, showed his home town folks something that memorable night by getting a toal of nineteen points. Two of the senior boys lowered their dignity to risk getting into a scrap and rang the Panthers ' " Bell " , which was typical of the many celebrating the victory. Guilford was again taken into camp with little trouble, getting trimmed handily 60-24. Although the Christian five appeared to be going " stale " at this point, they were able to turn back with not as much trouble as the score indicates: Catawba, 30-24; Atlantic Christian College, 34-32, and Ap palachian, 33-29. And another highly succe.ssful season was ended for the Elon Christians, who were captained by Hal " Hunk " Bradley after the retirement of John Cameron. Prospects for next year appear to be better than ever because of the return of every man on the squad: Roye, high scorer of the Conference the past three years; Bradley, captain-elect for the coming season; Cromlish, Abbitt, and McBrayer have one more year, Fesmirc two more, and Whit- ley, Odom, and Potter, being freshmen, have three more seasons left. " Wimpy " Fowler, our mana- ger, couldn ' t be left out as he did very well looking out for the equipment and taking care of the score book.

The teams frequently took on off-campus teams, playing some here and taking some trips. Although a league was not organized on the campus this year, there will probably be an inter-fraternity league next season. These games afforded special entertainment when the varsity was away on trips, and at various games the larger portion of the student body attended.

The schedule was as follows: Appalachian State Teachers College 30 Elon 5 High Point n Elon 5 Spray 12 Elon 16 High Point 16 Elon 12 Naval Apprentice 221 2 Elon III 2 2 meets are pending — Appalachian and Spray Y. The team has done remarkably well considering the new and inexperienced men on the squad and the veteran teams that they have encountered. The personnel of the team: 118 1b. — Jimmy Wilburn — He is a scrappy boy who is expected to produce great ability for the next season. 126 1b. — Dick Bigelow, from Portsmouth, Virginia, is sh iwing fine form on the mats and is credited with one fall over High Point. 135 lb. — Billy Martin is the captain of the team and has lost but one match this season. 145 lb. — Carl Foushee won the only match against the veteran Appalachian Grapplers with a fall. 155 lb. — Clyde Foushee has two victories to his credit this season. 165 lb. — Azariah Thompson is wrestling for the first time and is making a fine battle against experienced opponents. 175 lb. — McGalliard has made great progress and is expected to continue for next year ' s team. Unlimited — James Day, in the match with Spray, got a double fall on his opponent to win the meet. Although the team lost the wrestling match to Naval Apprentice, they surely got their goat on their return trip to Elon.

The sports offered were soccer, volley ball, basketball, baseball, tennis, and hiking. The soccer and baseball games created much interest, as well as the basketball and tennis tournaments. For participation in these sports, points were awarded toward a letter. There were two letters offered, a junior letter awarded for four hundred points, and a senior letter for five hundred additional points. The members of the association enjoyed a weiner roast in the fall and a banquet in the spring, at which time awards were given to those who had earned their points. In April the association sponsored a Play Day for high school girls. There were a large number present to participate in various activities. Piigc Ninely-ieveti 1937 The Phipsicli INTMA MURAL BASKETBALL During the basketball season, while the team was away on its trips, something had to be done to create a little athletic spirit on the campus. Under the direction of Coach Ellis Fysal, former University of North Carolina star athlete, strong teams were organized which had much interest in campus basketball. The intra-mural league was made up of the following teams: the East Winds, Razzle Dazzle, Second Floor North Dormitory, Third Floor North Dormitory, Publishing House, and Day Students. The Third Floor of North Dormitory was victorious in all the games that they played in this league. Cleveland Campbell, forward, was at the top of the scoring line. All the teams are planning a very successful season for next year. SOFTBALL LEAGUE 1937 SCHEDULE Frid.w, April 16 Publishing House vs East Dorm. Faculty vs North Dorm. Tuesday.

When the varsity was away the teams took to Comer field to play their games, some were played in front of West Dorm, and when they were chased off by the " law " they played them out at the high school. The teams have some very outstanding material, former college and university stars on the faculty team, and lettermen on the dormitory teams. From all indications at present.

This year ' s team is much more balanced than last year ' s, and. they are working diligently, showing much spirit and enthusiasm. Elon is anticipating an unusually good year in tennis.

Prior to the establishment of the Student Senate, there existed for some time a modified form of student government for men. The organization found expression in a Student Government Club. After some agitation, however, a more definite form of organization and more definite power were secured. Beginning with the fall term of 1919, and in accord with an agreement between students and faculty, the government of the men m the student body of Elon College was vested in the hands of a Student Senate. The women were not granted the privilege of self-government until a bit later. The College Catalogue for 1919, following a presentation of the new constitution for men ' s government, contains a brief paragraph pertaining to government of the women students of the college. The govern- ment of the ladies is vested in the Faculty as the final authority. The President and Dean of Women, assisted by the matrons and lady faculty members, are directly responsible. There is a growmg sentiment for student self-government among the ladies. The next College Catalogue, that of 1920, announced the granting of a constitution for student self-government among the young ladies. The government was placed in the care of a Student Council.

Under the direction of the student director, Landon Walker, they offer excellent cntertani- ment in cliapel services, concerts, and other occasions. At their first business meeting Albert Mastrobattisto was elected president, and John Horton, secre- tary and treasurer. Their repertoire consists of semi-classical and popular music. Their own original style of singing is very effective. On March 22. they gave a joint concert with the college band, sponsored by the PHIPSICLL The program was received by a pleased audience which filled the Whitley Memorial Auditorium.

J0H 50 : LITERARY SOCIETY In the Fall of 1935 several entliusiastic students conceived the idea that a literary society was greatly needed on the Elon campus. From this idea a society with twelve members was formed. From this small group has grown a pxjwerful and beneficial organ- ization, now boasting a full quota of thirty members. The most unusual charaaeristics of the society is its initiative and self reliance. The members feel that as college students they are capable of formulating and caring out their own constructive plan of improvement. With this view in mind the society has been reluctant about asking suggestions or aid of any kind from the faculn-. Depending upon this self reliance the members have shown an unusual desire to improve their ability in debating, in extemporaneous speaking and in general cultural qualities. The group is very diversed in its interest. At its weekly meeting many different topics are discussed. These topics consist in general, in past, present and future problems and questions. The society is greatly interested in the problems on the campus and its members take a leading part in all school activities. The outstanding social event of the year was their very colorful and impressive banquet held in December, in the society hall. Beginning with this year the society is sjxjnsoring a debating team which has had remarkable success. This team has encountered many strong teams, including Roanoke. Appalachian and Funnan. Truly the group is almost as diverse as the Johnson Club of old, for which it is named. Taking into consideration the aims and ideals of the society we feel that much progress has been made toward the literarv side of our college life. P ge Ote Hxrtdred Sareit The Phipsicli THE MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATION Sixteen members comprised tiie Ministerial Association this year. Led by its president, Alfonso Grissom, and secretary-treasurer, John Garner, the club met weekly on Friday afternoons, for discussion on the main problems of the fundamentals of religion. These group discussions purposed to bring to the members a greater under- standing, to give them another opportunity for preparation for their future careers, as well as to discover the viewpoints of others and compare them with their own. On some occasions they were privileged to hear visiting speakers and members of the College faculty, who were of greater experience in this field. Among these lecturers were D r. L. E. Smith, Professor D. J. Bowden, Dr. J. R. Clinton of Philadelphia, Dr. R. G. Larkin, the astronomer, and Rev. Samuel Voss of Raleigh. One Sunday evening in each month, the Ministerial Association conducted a Vesper service. These were always of interest to the student body, as well as an inspi- ration. Piige One Hundred Eight 1937 The Phipsicli PAN HELLENIC (COUNCIL The mutual desire of the various social clubs of the campus for a method of deal- ing with the problems that concerned all the clubs led to the organization of the Pan Hellenic Council during the year 1929-30. There is equal representation of each social club. This council has proved indispensable ever since its organization, in settling mat- ters of common interest to the administration and the social clubs. The meetings promote a spirit of understanding and cooperation among all the social clubs. The officers of the club are: WooDROw PiLANi), K I ' N President Bkn Lilien, ITK Vke-Presideni Sara Virginia Hook, TZ Secretary Lathan Rea, ADA Treasurer Martha Sutton, ATK Representative to Social Committee William Maness, S B Sergeant -at -Arms Page One Hundred Nine S IQP7 g- The Phipsicli COMMERCIAL CLUB MOLL Albright, Audrey Campbell.

In the spring semester, lectures and demonstrations were given by business men and by specialists in office appliances. The members acquire a thorough knowledge of the mimeo- graph, dictating machine, and other office equipment. Due to the greatly increased membership, the club was divided into two groups. Each group took a business inspection tour to the Jefferson Standard Life and Pilot Life Insurance companies. There the students were able to observe the modern equipped machines in use. The trip was very beneficial in that the students were able to observe the business atmosphere in which a well organ- ized and etlicient staff works. After the visit, the students took their minds off the business and spent a very enjoyable day in Greensboro. The motive that the club is striving for is to develop those traits of ethics, tact, and coopera- tion which will give them a better and more efficient insight into the business world. OFFICERS Mattie Pickett President Sam Foushee Vice-President Agnes Loy Secretary jnd Treasurer Page One Hundred Eleven 1937 The Phipsicli THE BAND The Elon College Band is a small, but well trained group of musicians. Under the very capable direction of the student director, Mr. Landon Walker, they render concerts upon various occasions and help keep up the school spirit at the football and basketball games. Dressed in bright colored uniforms they make a neat marching unit on parade. The band usually marches between the halves of football games behind the high- stepping drum-major, Harold Hilburn. Pj e One Ihmclreil Tiretve 1937 The Phipsicli PI GAMMA MU Pi Gamma Mu is the National Social Science Honor Society, and its purpose is the inculcation of the ideals of scholarship, scientific attitude and method and social service in the study of all social problems. Its particular purpose is to send out people imbued with social idealism, trained in scientific thought and encouraL;ed to help others to be scientific in their thinking on social questions. The organization originated at South- western College, Winfield, Kansas, in the spring of 1924. At that time Dr. Leroy Allen called together a few of his most promising students who decided to found a national honor society in the field of social science. Today Pi Gamma Mu chapters are found in all parts of the country. In 1929 the Alpha Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu in North Carolina was installed at Elon College. The chapter gives recognition, through membership, to upperdassmen, alumni, and faculty members, who have attained distinction in the social sciences. Page One Hundred Thirteen 1937 The Phipsicli DMAMATIC CLUB The Elon College Players were this year under the direction of Hilda Lee Heatwole. Meeting on the second and fourth Monday of each month, the Club was composed of those who were highly interested in things dramatic, and who were all willing and able to take part in the Players ' activities. The Program Committee, with Gwendolyne Tillmanns as chairman, presented programs at each meeting, including lectures by Dr. Collins, who discussed " The Ideal College Dramatic Club " , and by Professor Bowden, speaking on " Drama in the Church " . Sara Virginia Hook read " Rich Man, Poor Man " , and a group of players presented a radio play for the entertainment of the Club. Outstanding in the dramatic year was the production of the comedy, " Three-Cornered Moon " , late in the fall. The adventures of the crazy Rimplegars, with their prospective suicides, their loss of the family fortune, and their subsequent alteration of their conception of values, proved an enter- taining theme. In the spring, a program of one-act plays was presented. " Trifles " and " Rich Man, Poor Man " were cast from the Club members, and given March 11. Piige One Hundred Fourteen 1937 The Phipsicli THE HOME ECONOMICS CLUB The Hume Economics Club was formed to acquaint those in and majoring in Home Econom- ics with some of the activities which every housewife daily carries on. Virginia Kerns, as president, has been a wise leader, and her associates have diligently aided her. The group has created social atmosphere in providing teas and luncheons for the faculty and students of Elon. In these activities the members have gained much experience toward becoming deft waitresses and gracious, clever hostesses.

Cinnon, William.ston, N. C, and of Miss Virginia Fitzhugh, former director of dramatics of the College, Elon secured a charter for a chapter of Delta Psi Omega, National Honorary Dramatic Fraternity, in February, 1933. There were eight charter members. Since that time, sixteen more members have been initiated, all having come up to the requirements through persistent and honest endeavor. This organization stimulated interest m dramatic activities, secures for the college all the advantages provided by a large national honorary fraternity, and serves as a reward for worthy efforts in participating in the plays staged by the dramatic organization of the college. This cast in no way aims to take the place of the regular college dramatic club, but fosters and aids it in any way possible.

Typically beautiful spring weather, and a warm sun helped to make the activities more pleasant, as a program that had long been in preparation was presented on the campus in front of the Alamance Building. The entertainment was ostensibly in honor of the gracious May Queen, Miss Ester Cole, and the handsome May King, W. W. Kimball. A Pirate dance and a scarf dance formed a part of the program, with Elon tumblers addmg variety. In addition, the traditional May Pole dance was given a prominent place, as well as a Minuet by the members of the May Court. " Tank " Nelson provided entertainment for the King and Queen with his excellent imitation of bird calls, and his capable manipulation of the harmonica, presenting a group of diversified selections in his own inimitable way. Lanson Granger was Master of Ceremonies, showing to good advantage his talent for man- agement and his own pleasant personality. The whole program was under the direction of Mrs. Johnsie Cobb, assisted by Miss Frances Goodwin, who, after long hours of practice, gave to Eloq. College another successful and very pleasant May Day. Page One HNiidred Tirenly 1937 SOCIAL CLUBS The Phipsicli James Edwards A. W. Orissom John Garner Woodrow I ' iland Dan T.
