HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE During the fifty jears since her founding Elon College has known a varied and dramatic history. Her progress has been exceptional, and events which seemed disastrous have made way for the development of a greater school. We deem it fitting, therefore, to review briefly in this Golden Anniversary Edition of the Phi-Psi-C ' li the outstanding incidents and achievements of this history. The story of Elon College is a constituent i)art of the historv of the Christian Church in the Southeast. In 1794 the Reverend James O ' Kelly and a group of dissenters from Wesleyan Methodism met at Lebanon Church in Surry County, Virginia and agreed to found what was the first democratically governed church to arise on American soil. They named the church " Christian, to the exclusion of all party and sectarian names. " They were interested in Chris- tianity, not as a system of theology or a bod} ' of doctrines, but as a way of life. It was on this basis that the church has grown to its present status. From the early beginnings of the church in North Carolina and Virginia there had been a demand that there be established a college for the denomination. The demand grew with the church, and in September, 1888, the Southern Convention met in extraordinary- session in Old Providence Church, Graham, North Carolina, to hear the reports and recommendations of the Committee on Schools and Colleges. The Convention appointed a jjrovisional Board for the ])roposed college, authorizing the Board to choose a site for the college and to make the necessary legal and financial transactions. The Board was composed of Dr. W. S. Long, Dr. J. Pressley Barrett, Hon. F. O. Moring, Col. J. H. Harden, and Dr. G. S. Watson. Dr. W. S. Long, a pioneer in higher education, had opened a school in Graham in 1865; this school, which later developed into Graham Normal College, became the active forerunner of Elon College. Led by Dr. Long, the Board finally chose a site at a village then known as Mill Point, six miles from Graham. A tract of twenty-five acres of land at Mill Point was given by the Hon. W. H. Trollingcr of Haw River. The citizens of ] Iill Point donated twenty-three acres additional, and four thousand dollars in cash. In consideration of these donations the college was located at IVIill Point. Two outstanding donations to the early college were the gifts of ] Ir. John A. Mills, an officer in the Southern Convention, who gave the lumber foi- the oria-inal l)uildino-, and " Slv. Trollinger who g-ave in addition to the tract of land tlic hrick used in the Administration Buildino- and East Dormitory. The Provisional Board preferred other names, but owing to the predominance of stalwart oaks on the site, selected the name " Elon, " the Hebrew word meaning oak. On March 11, 1889, Elon College was chartered and incorporated by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, and the school began its career as a ])ublicly recognized in- stitution. In keeping with the charter provisions, the original Board of Trustees numbered fifteen: W. S. Long, J. W. Wellons, W. W. Staley, G. S. Watson, : I. E. Hurley, E. T. Pierce, W. J. Lcc, P. J. Kernodle, J. F. West, E. E. Holland, E. A. Moffitt, J. M. Smith, J. H. Harden, F. O. IMoring, and S. P. Read. Dr. I ong was elected president of the college, and six additional members of the faculty were elected : Dr. J. U. Newman, who is the only member of the original group still serving on the faculty, Miss Bcrta : Ioring (Mrs. J. W. Roberts), : Iiss Lena Beal (Airs. W. G. Farrar), Dr. E. L. MofHtt, Professor S. A. Holleman, and Dr. J. O. Atkinson. Two buildings were erected during the year at the site at Mill Point : The Administration Building, a large three-story brick building housing the library, laboratories, the administrative oificcs, society halls, and classrooms for all departments; the other, Flast Dormitory, a residence hall for girls. After four years. Dr. Long was succeeded as president in 189 ' 3 by Dr. W. W. Staley, then })astor of the Suffolk, ' irg■inia, Christian Church, iio served as non-resident ])resident without salary. U})on Dr. Staley ' s resignation in 1905. Dr. E. L. INIoffit was elected to succeed him. Dr. Moffit served six years, during which time two additional buildings were erected on the cam- pus. A larger dormitory for girls. West Dormitory, was built, and East Dormitory was given over to the boys. The new dining halls, kitchen and the girls ' gymnasium were built adjacent to West Dormitory. In addition, tlie power liouse was erected, jjroviding electric ])ower and steam heat for the college buildings. In 1911, Dr. Moffitt resigned as ])rcsident, and Dr. W. A. Harper, then a member of the faculty, was elected and began the longest term of office in the history of the college. In 1912, a larger boys ' dormitory and gymnasium combined was built and financed through the Elon Alunmi. It is ]n-opei-ly known as Alumni Building, l)ut students have always known it as " North Dormitory. " A year later Ladies ' Hall was erected to take care of an increased enroll- ment of girls. During the ])criod of America ' s participation in the World War, regular enrollment at Elon declined. However, a contingent of the R.O.T.C. was stationed on the campus and temjjorarily greatly increased the student population. Regular class scliedules were adjusted to meet the new demands, but the school continued its usual activities. In January 1923, the Administration Building was destroyed b}? fire. " The fire, " as it is known in Elon ' s history, is one of the most outstanding incidents in tiie story of the school be- cause of the excitement and terror it caused, and because it brought about a building program much needed by the college. Students and faculty carried on as best they could with improvised classrooms and equij)ment while reconstruction was in progr ess. Five new buildings were planned and erected: The Alamance Building, Carlton Library, Whitley INIemorial Auditorium, Mooncy C ' iu ' istian Education Building and Duke Science Build- ing. Great pride was taken in the erection of the IMooney Christian P ducation Building since it was the first such building to be erected on the cam])us of any college in America. Witli the onset of the depression of 1929-30, the heavy mortgages and a decreased en- rollment combined to bring a difficult situation upon the shoulders of the administration and the trustees. Following Dr. Harper ' s resignation in June 19 ' 31, the College was without a president until Octol)er of that year, and there was grave doubt as to whether Elon would be able to open its doors to students in the fall of 1931. At this desperate moment the Board of Trustees elected as president Dr. L. E. Smith, then pastor of the Cln-istian Temple of Norfolk, Virginia. Dr. Smith succeeded in bringing Elon through the stormy years successfully, and not only recouped the losses in personnel and students, but greatly reduced the indebtedness of the in- stitution and increased the student enrollment. Athletics assumed importance, and Elon now ranks high in college athletic circles outside the conference as well as within the conference group. The curriculum has been improved and special courses added from time to time to care for the demands of students as well as the changing business and professional order. Looking back through the j ears we proudly survey the evidence of success of students and faculty alike, of the binding loyalty of friends, and of deep rooted tradition. 10 THE COLLEGE SEAL The official college seal was designed by Dr. Walton Crump Wicker, past head of the Department of ]Matliematics, who was an integral part of the college from the date of its founding until his deatli, August 31, 1939. It was completed during the summer of 1908 and submitted to the Administrative Committee and the Board of Trustees for approval, at their annual meeting in September of the same year. Upon its acceptance, it was declared the official insignia of Elon College to be used on all college documents of an academic nature. The minutes of the Committee which included Dr. Wicker ' s interpreta- tion of the seal were destroyed wlien tlic Administration Building burned in 1923. The significance of the various symbols is generally known, since they are of Masonic origin, and the interpretation now given to the seal embodies much the same meaning as did the original. Numen Lumen, the Latin motto of the college, is freely translated New Light. The two columns represent strength, and the eye pictured above the lighted urn and the open book is the All Seeing Eye which shines down upon the Urn of Truth and the Book of Knowledge, rej)resenting the guiding principles upon which this institution was founded. The circle enclosing these figures symbolizes the eternal circle, unbroken from eternity to eternity. Eighteen hundred eighty-nine, the date included in the seal, is the date of the founding of the institution. Wherever the use of color is possible, tlie syniljols are maroon inscribed upon a gold Ijackground, these colors being the traditional colors of the College. 3n jHemoriam Dr. W. C.

Its story of progress is interesting and thrilling. Beginning in an uncleared forest, Elon now boasts of ten buildings on the campus, valuable property and holdings off the campus, a fine student body numbering six hundred twenty-five, and a most efficient faculty. Her advantages at the beginning of her second half-century of service are auspicious. At present Elon College is larger than and is as efficient in the field of higher education as was anj ' institution of higher learning within the state fifty years ago. Prophetic insight would be required to indicate what the institution may be at the end of another half-century of service and growth. Her present acliievements have been attained by strict adherence and devotion to high ideals in all matters affecting the training and guidance of youth, by strict economy, and by unusual frugality. The founders and directors of the institution have made investments, em- ployed instructors, and formulated programs for procedure, all for the benefit of the youth of our state and nation in every age. The college stands today encouraging her present student body, congratulat- ing her present graduating class, and craving the cooperation and continued he!]) of those who have crossed her campus and gone out to do battle in life. Her influence has gone out through all the land and her invitation sincere and earnest is today extended to all ambitious youths who desire to discover their talents and develop the same for high service in a needy world.

Commencement is the beginning of that life which reaches beyond. All experiences preceding this period weigh heavily in assuring the degree of success one may attain in his chosen vocation. I sincerely trust that everyone of you has benefited exceptionally well from t])e offerings of Elon College. My best wishes and sincere hopes attend all of your endeavors in behalf of a democratic society. J. D. Messick, Dean.

A II A Senate 4; Maroon and Gold Staff ' , Business Manager 4. We predict for Basnight a not-too-casy but (dicays interesting future. Why? Because he tliinls for liim- self, says xvhat he th inks and is his own sincere critic. Yet, withal, he is a socinble fellow — one might even call him a ladies ' man. Frances Bean Spencer, N. C.

AHA " The Captain " has taken things as they came, taken them U ' ith a smile and passed them on to his friends — a good way to take care of the unpleasant as " well as the pleasant. An even disposi- tion and a frequent chuckle do much to make him new friends and keep the old. Wesley Hall Brooks Roxboro, N.

Cap leaves behind him a host of friends who really appreciate him though they spend a great deal of time and energy teasing. Sin- cerity and germine interest in his tcork make him stand out in the ranks and assure Henry a successful future ill whatever lie undertakes. SENIORS 24 Mary Helen Chasox Lumber Bridge, N. C. T Z Home Economics Club 1 : Student Council 2, i, Secre- tary ' 4; Education Club i. Mary Helen is a most re- markabh- xcoman : she seldom talks. But wh n she does, it ' s worth your zchile to listen. As secretary of the Council she has served her post well, setting a high standard for her successors. Clifton Coble Julian, N. C. Intramural Sjjorts 1, 2, 3, 4; S.C.A. 1, 2, 3, 4. This Coble lad has carved for himself a niclw in our Senior Class tluit is his alone. A quiet fellow is he, on e who stands by his belief that actions speak louder than words, saying little but doing much for all his fellow classmates. J. C. Coble Julian, N. C. One sentence from him, and you know from his draxd that J. C. is a son of the south. A brief acquaint- ance with him, and you know from his actions that he is the typical southern gentleman. One dramatic role, and you realize that he could be quite an actor if his interest weren ' t securely tied up in math and chem- istry. PHI-PSI-CLI 1940 25 SENIORS Beverly Congleton Stokes, N. C. Who doesn ' t like a person possessed of a good nature and an ever-readiness to overlook mutters that could he so easily taken as offens- es? Well, Beverly is just that kind of a person. A most agreeable fellow, one who is respected and loved by everyone. After tzoo years of " Reeling Along ' ' ' Beverly considers himself an apt critic of campus movies, and I ' ows to avoid press bul- letins the rest of Jiis life. Richard Divers Stuart, Va.

RicJuird ' s indizndnality is defined in terms of an as- piring playwriter, a French scholar, a lover of grand opera and classi-cal music, and his willingness to tutor those less studious than he. Only his close friends kiiow how much he studies, or lioxv much pleasure he derives from it. John Lee Edwards Stantonsburg, N. C. S t e p p i n g confidently along through the maze of studies, campus life and fun, John Lee developed an ex- tensive practiced knoidedge derived mainly from a con- tinual desire to understand " what makes the xvorld go round.

Some attain popnlarity by their social ability, others by their proreess on the field of sport. Fritts com- bined the trco to zcin his high place in everyone ' s favor. He is a man among men and a gentleman among tlie ladies. Here ' s a prediction that he will retain this popnlarity ami that he will hit the top. Andrew Fi-ller New Bern, N. C.

When you see a broad smile, a pair of txcinhling eyes and a crop of curly brozon hair coming toivard you, that ' s Joe. One of the Publishing House gang, he shares xvith his pals an aversion to serious study, a love for the Drug and sports, and the ability to make many lasting friends. Joe Hardison Greensboro, N. C. I T K Varsity Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4, Co-captain 4 ; Manager Basketball 3 ; Intramural Sports 1, 2, 3, 4; Band 1; Elcctorial Committee 4. Hailing from near-by Greoisboro, Joe knexv more about Elon when he came than most of us do now. Athletics take a large share of his time, but he manages to have a few extra hours for certain campus belles, his fraternity brothers and, believe it or not, studying.

Mary Lou began her career just over the ri-oer in Yankee land, but her dispo- sition and hospitality have a true sotithern tang. She hasn ' t decided just what she ' ll do when she leaves Elon but if her record here be a true indication, shell do xchatever she chooses ef- ficiently. ' IOLET Hoffman Burlington, N.

Shy and retiring as the flower li ' hose name she bears, this zcinsovie miss 1ms made much of her college career. She finds studying pleasant and spends her leisure hours reading poetry. Her name is a regular feature of the honor roll and her scholastic record is exceptionally high. Her ready senile and ability .should stand her in good stead in later years.

Dr. Collins, teacher of the Journalism class, is Faculty Ad- viser of the publication.

The Society holds weekly meetings in the Society Hall at which time they conduct a business meeting in parliamentary order and ] rograms of various types. Debates, ora- tions, discussions of current events and plays constitute a large part of these programs. Outstanding in their activities for this year was the Oratorical Contest held in the spring. This year the contest was held in the Society Hall April i24. Harold Maxwell, using as his subject " Propaganda, " was awarded a gold key for the first jjrize. Second prize was won by Keinieth Utt, who used as his topic " Save Our Democracy. " Third prize went to John Hall who spoke on " Our Economic System. " The fourth ])rize was awarded Richard Divers for his oration, " Crime. " The second, third and foui ' th prizes were cash awards. Jim Ferris, Joel Scott. Charles Jones and Bill Hilliard received honorable mention for their speeches. Members acclaimed this the most successful contest ever staged by the Society and are confident that it has laid the foundation for bigger and better ones in following years. Judges for the Oratoi-ical Contest were Professors Barney, Sprague and French, all of the college faculty. At the beginning of the second semester the members entertained at their annual iian- quet for graduating meml)ers of the Society, and special guests. 71 PANVIO LITERARY SOCIETY Mary Walker President First Semester Mary Lou Hayes President Second Semester Walker Hayes Bean Womble Eaves Holmes Martin Xcwton Pennington Wright Dobbs Felton Frazier Henry Hunter Kerns Lillev Brown Clodfelter Copeland Houser Johnson Mendenhall Himnier She])hard Tuttle Ward The Panvio Literary, comj anion organization to tlie Dr. Johnson Literary Society, operates on much the same plan as tlieir brother organization. Regular meetings featuring programs of varying nature, business sessions and socials are included in their activities. The youngest of the campus clubs, the Panvio Society has made rapid progress in tlie two years since its establishment, and shows great promise of becoming one of the most in- fluential groups on the campus. 72 HOUSEHOLD ARTS CLUB One of the oldest non-sorority clubs for girls on the campus is the Household Arts Club. Its membership is drawn from the Home Economics majors and other students in- terested in the type of work it promotes. Although its chief function is to discuss prob- lems in the field of Home Economics and to promote interest in this subject, it stages many social affairs during the school year, ranging from formal costume teas to roast-your-own- weincr picnics. In addition to their regular club work, the members of the Household Arts Club plan and serve banquets for many campus organizations throughout the year, sent contestants to the annual fashion show held at State College, Raleigh, N. C. each year, and entertain the Board of Trustees at the spring meeting of the Board. Officers of the group are: Ida Mae Piland, President; Elmer Williams, A ' ice Presi- dent ; Hazel Mclntyre, Secretary-Treasurer ; and Miss Lida ] Iuse, Faculty Sponsor. Other members are Jane Byrd, Sara Corbitt, ilary Lee Dameron, IVIinnie Bell Fryc, Levene Hobnes, Jewel Kerns, Helen Long, Pansy INIiller, Mildred Shook, Nora Sunnny, Agnes Walker, Ellen Womblc and Elizabeth INIanchester. 73 COMMERCIAL Typing Laboratory THE COMMERCIAL CLUB The Commercial Club is one of the most active clc})ai ' tineiital cluljs on the campus. It was organized soon after the business administration work was added to tlic school curri- culum, and has to its credit a record of worthwhile activities throughout its history. Programs otiicr than those relating to the business field are often given at their regular meetings, and several events are sponsored during the year. During the spring the club visits many business firms in neighboring cities to get first-liand information on office management and secretarial ]jractice. In addition to these trips, motion pictures of the nioi-c ])rominent industries and to])ics of interest to business students are shown. Prominent business and professional leaders are ])i ' ought to the campus for lectures to the entire student body under their sjMinsorship. 74 Dorothy Chase President Margaret Pennington Vice President Officers Mary Ruth McDade Secretary Julia Ellen Feshwater Treasurer larguerite Alcxaiuler Frances Anderson Ruth Anderson Anne Bailey Edna Barrier Betty Bauknccht Loretta Bauknecht Louise Bingham Joyce Black Christine Bradshaw Laura Sue Brooks Ann Cresswell Nan Dauglitrev Ann Eshelinan Christine Firebaugh Doris Fonviile Sara Forlines Caroline Harrell Jarvis Herring Sara Huffincs Members Nina Jones Ester Ruth Kelley Mary Elizabeth Kiniery Imogene Lackey Sylvester lallard Delia ] Iashburn Martlia ] Iassev Billy McAdanis Jane Moize Opal ] Ioore Norma ]Morris Ann Newman ' irginia Oakle}- Charles Parker Mildred Pharis Sara Philli})s Lillian Rascoe Marcella Rawls Helen Rhodes Clell Riggs Austin Ross Lurlene Ross ALigenta Rountree Helen Rumlev Frances Seymour Juanita Seymour Edna Somers William Somers A irginia Thomas Edith Thomason Louise Tuttle IVIargie Wall La erne Wai ' d Pearl Wavnicli Edna Weeks Louise Wilson ] Iary P ' rances Williamson Cassic Wrav Clarence Wvrick it the Cummorcial Club receiving iiLstruction in filing. 75 THE FINE ARTS CLUB Students in the regular art courses offered by the Fine Arts Department and others especially interested in art work comprise the membership of this club. Of their many activities during the year, the Open House and Exhibit, a regular part of the commence- ment j rogram each year, is outstanding. Commercial printing, water colors, portrait jJainting, tapestry work and china paint- ing are featured in club work and draw many members to the group from outside the scliool. The club visits galleries, private exhibits and exliibits at nearby scliools whenever possible. Several members of the group have won recognition for their work in art circles throughout the state, and tlie club is considered one of the most prominent in this section. Officers of the group are: Margaret INIillcr, President; Dorothy Warren, Vice Presi- dent; Raleigh Lutcr, Secretary; Camillc Kivcttc, Treasurer; and Miss Lila Newman, Faculty Adviser. 76 MINISTERIAL flSSOCIflTION To promote interest in religious work and to bring- in closer relationship the students sjiecializing in this field is the dual pur])ose of the Ministerial Association. It is one of the best known organizations on the campus with a reputation for smoothness and harmony in its work, its participation in school activities and the outstanding personalities of its membership. ] lany members of the Ministerial Association hold positions as regular ])astors for country churches in nearby conmiunities and all are frequently selected to lead special services of a religious nature in these and other churches. Outstanding in their work as a club is the organization of training groups and youth forums in churches which did not have groups of this t yjie for their younger members.

This organization has done much to strengthen the ties between camjjus and da y students, by sponsoring social events both on the campus and in Burlington. It sends representatives to the Council and Senate, acting as the governing unit of all Day Students while they are on the campus. Wallace Kernodle heads the group as President and is assisted in his duties by Fred Lowe, Vice Presidcni; Mrginia Craw- ford, Secretitry: and H. M. Austin, Treasurer. For the first time in their history, the Day Student Association sponsored a Students ' College Day for the seniors in all tlie high schools throughout Alamance County. Members of the Association acted as guides to show the guests about the campus. All departments of the college were visited. Students of the Physics staged an Open House in their honor, showing some of tlic humorous tricks as well as the practical side of the science. IVIiss Newman received in the Art department for an exhibit of student work, and Professor and ] Irs. Howell, assisted by Miss Davis, conducted the seniors through the Business department. To climax the day, pictures of campus life were shown in AVhitlev and members of the Home Economics department entertained the visitors at a tea. The Association has ])lanncd to make Students ' College Day a part of their regular program in the future. 79 THE ELON COLLEGE PLAYERS Evelyn Lilley President Elizabeth Armfield Vice President June Leath Secretary-Treasurer Dr. Fletcher Collins, Jr. Adviser Tlie Elon College Players have had a large share in building the interest in dramatics which is traditional on the campus. During the year they present one-act plays of various types and some original j hiys. Their major production of the year, a popular three-act play, is staged in the early spring. For the 1940 production, " You Can ' t Take It With You, " current hit of the New York stage and screen b ' George Kaufman and ]Moss Hart, was staged. Membership in the club is not limited, and all students interested in any phase of dramatics may become members of the Elon College Players.

However, the statistics of five games won and five games lost do not reveal the entire story of the record of this squad coached by Horace Hendrickson for the tliird year, and assisted by Joe Brunansk} ' . Although prospects were bright at the beginning of the season with li lettermen back, injuries to key men and other things prevented the Christians from ever reaching their full strength. Then again, two of the losses were to teams completely out of class with anything Elon has played within the past several years. Incidentally both losses were by identical margins, 3-i to 0. Wake Forest, victor by this score in the opener, was one of the south ' s strongest clubs. Catholic University received a bid to the Sun bowl and there played a scoreless tie with Arizona State Teachers College. Another loss was a 7 to 6 defeat by Ajjpalachian in one of the fiercest battles of the year even though the lountaineers were heavily favored. Lenoir Rhyne scored a 10 to upset victory over the Christians when they were perhaps at their weakest. A fast stepping La Salle team comjiletely outplayed a partially demoralized team to win, 32 to 6. On the credit side of the ledger, Elon beat a previously undefeated Catawba eleven 7 to in one of the Nortli State conference ' s biggest upsets of the year. All in all the year might be termed successful if obstacles placed in tlie way of victory are considered. Prospects are fairly bright for the coming year. Three men were lost by graduation. Captain Art Lea, a fighting little end, James Fritts, 200 pound guard, and Charlie Pittman, who proved that the old saying " They can ' t comeback " is wrong by sparking the Christians HENDRICKSON Head Coach FOOT IIOPKIXS— Bn4 WILKINSON ' — CtdVcr CASTURA— Boot CAUSEY— Tories 112 TOM AXC H E K—Back SHAW— Tackle BRYAN— (?»«(rd SHOWFETY— G«ard FRITTS— (?Hard " " ifcf .. g|g (■(iptdiii ART LEA— Ena BALL during tlic latter half of the year after injuries had kept him on the bench for practically three and a half years. Pittman was high scorer for tlie year with 47 points. A brief summary of each game follows : WAKE FOREST, 34-: ELON, For three quarters a solid Elon forward wall backed up by a fine defensive backfield held a Vake Forest running attack, which at the end of the season proved to be one of the best in the nation, at l)av. The halftime score was 6 to and the three quarter margin was 14 to 0, surprising the so-called ex])erts who had predicted a runaway. However, lack of reserves on Elon ' s part and a continuous stream of substitutes by the foe caused the Elons to wilt in the last quarter, and the Deacons, with John Polanski leading, tallied 20 points. Curry Bryan, guard. Garland Causey, tackle, Charles Donato, guard, Well- ington Saecker, end, and Jack Boone, in the I)ackfield. played the biggest part in stopping ] Iayberry, Gallovicli, Polanski, Edwards and others, but they were unable to hold up without relief. The game was played in Greensboro ' s IMemorial Stadium. ELON, 19; HIGH POINT, Elon copped its first North State conference victory of the year with Joe Golombek and Lee Fones ]:)acing the Christians to the victory over High Point. Golombek tallied twice and Fones once. Captain Lea, Bryan, Donato and Causey along with Ca] tain-elect Saecker played well in the line, often stopping a threatening Panther running attack. The game was played at High Point. VOSES—Back SAECKEB.— End YOS KOSKY— Back MAGNATTA— BacA: 113 f f r tJ LA SALLE, 32; ELON, 6 A dazzling running attack in tlie last half baffled tlie Cliristians in this game as the Phila- delphia club trounced Elon 32 to 6 at Burlington. The brilliant running of Paul Prettyman, La Salle halfback, was a feature of the game. Elon ' s score came in the second quarter when Bernie Daher passed to John Henry Pearce for the touchdown. Jack Boone, Captain Art Lea and Wellington Saccker did a great job defensively, but it wasn ' t enough. CATHOLIC U., 34; ELON, A stubborn Elon defense made the Cardinals of Catholic U. extend themselves for every touchdown as the Christians bowed to a superior eleven in AVashington, D. C. Power was the key of the Catholic attack, and Elon, with injuries through- out the club, was unable to hold the powerful run- ning attack of one of the cast ' s outstanding teams in check. At one time the passing combination of Daher to Pearce advanced the ball to tlie five-yard marker, but two passes failed. LENOIR RHYNE, 10; ELON, Breaks truly decided this contest, Elon out- ]j]ayed their North State conference foe through- out, but fumbles proved disastrous. A miscue set the stage for a Lenoir Rhync field goal early in the game, and then later another one enabled a foe to grab the ball as it bounced off an Elon backfield man and run for a touchdown. Elon ' s offense func- tioned very ' well except near tlie goal line. The game was played again in Hickory. ELON, 14; NAVAL APPRENTICE, For the first time of the season, the Christians HUM LEY Manager CLAYTOR Asst. Manag«r GUILFORD GAME 114 really showed a little power in downing Apprentice 14 to 0, although C ' iiarlie Pittman did have to do about all the Ijall carrying himself. Pittman, running at fullback, pierced tlic Siiipbuilders ' line time and again and finally scored both touchdowns. His work along with tliat of Jack Boone was a feature of the game at Newj)ort Noavs, a.. APPALACHIAN, 7; ELON, 6 These two fierce North State conference rivals reversed the score of the year before as Elon was eliminated from tiie loop race in Greens- l)oro. A versatile Mountaineer ruiming attack with Ernie Safrit, Bob Broome and Henderson Baker alternating paced the Boone Boys to the triumph. Despite the fact tliat Elon was kept on the defensive the greater part of this battle of nnid, tiic A])])alachians got within scoring distance only twice, the time they did tally and then one time when Well- ington Saecker blocked an attem])tcd field goal. Jack Boone ' s kickino- kept tlie Christians out of several spots and Charlie Pittman and Lee Fones kept Elon in the ball game witli their running. Currv Bryan, at guard, and Garland Causey, at tackle, were again line standouts. ELON, 7; CATAWBA, Suljstitutc center Hul)ljard Law ' s recovery of a Catawba fumble in tlie first jjeriod on the foe ' s 18-yard stripe set the stage for Elon to score an upset victory over the Indians at Salisbury. In seven tries Charlie Pittman cracked the line for the score and Cause}- placekicked the extra ])oint. For the remainder of the game, the Elons ke])t their foe in the hole and turned in one of the l)est games of the year. ELON, 52; WESTERN CAROLINA, With Lee J )nes setting the )a.ce with three touchdowns, two of them on runs of over 60 yards, the Christians routed their North State conference rivals at Burlington. Jack Boone added two more touch- downs, and Charlie Pittman, Joe Tomanchek and Joe Hopkins one each. Pittman scored tliree of the points after touciidowns and Fones one. Practically the entire Elon squad saw action and from the start had little trouble in trampling the Catamounts who were no match in size or power. ELON, 28; GUILFORD, 8 Elon concluded its season witji a 28 to 8 triumph over a stubborn Quaker eleven in Greensboro ' s Memorial stadium. Throughout the Guilford team put up a stubborn fight liut the outsome was never in doubt. Charlie Pittman, in tlie l)ackfield, and Captain Art Lea and James Fi-itts in the line brougiit their careers to a close witii outstandino ' exhibitions. BHUNAXSkV Asst. Coach VARSITY TEAM 115 GARDNER Elon ' s 1939-40 basketball team, composed mainly of sophomores, com- piled a remarkable record for the season and attained recognition as one of the outstanding cage clubs in North Carolina. Out of a 22-game schedule, the Christians won 19 and were undefeated on their home floor. Elon outscorcd its opponents by a large margin, 1,056 to fiS-i points for foes. The high scoring accomplishments of the Christians who averaged nearly 50 ])oints per game for the season were led by Captain Lloyd Whitley and Jack Gardner, two forwards who were admittedly one of the most outstanding combinations in the south. Whitley tallied 214 points while Gardner scored 202. Besides their ability in hitting the basket, these two boys were invaluable with their floor play. Both were placed on the all-North State conference team at the end of the season. John Henry Pearce, lanky junior from Suffolk, Va., took care of the pivot post while Lincoln ] Ianzi and W. L. Hobson, a couple of flashy sophomores, handled the guard positions. INIax Zyvith, Ed Potter, Ray Cessna, and Douglas Moss won letters as reserves. Elon won 14 consecutive contests before being upset in the North State race by a fighting Catawba club at Salisbury. After seeing ap- ])alacliian run away with the game at Boone, tlie Christians got revenge here but saw Western Carolina do the same thing. Elon finished second to Appalachian in the North State conference race. Within tlie conference, Elon started off with a bang, encountering little opposition until the middle of tlie season. The first North State clash was with Guilford on the Quaker ' s home court. The Christians had little trouble Avinning this one by a 59 to 20 score as the first team sat on the bench all but about five minutes. Lenoir Rhyne gave the Cannonade a few anxious moments at Hick- ory, but Captain Whitley, Gardner and the rest came through with a 46 to 34 triumph. Later on the Elon court, the Bears battled Elon to a 13 to 13 tie at the half, but during the final 20 minutes, Whitley, Gardner, and Manzi went wild to roll up a final 51 to 19 margin of victory. Whitley had 13 points in the last half of this clash for one of his biggest scoring si lurges of the year. LLOYD WHITLEY Captain CESSNA BASKET 116 With Whitle} ' , Gardner and Pearce leading, tlie Christians had little trouble in doubling the score on Western Carolina, 58 to 26. This game gave little indication of the 50 to 48 defeat which the Catan)ounts were to pin on the high riding quintet later in the season. A two-game series with Atlantic Christian at Wilson was little more than a workout for the Elons who won by 62 to 25 and 54 to 23 scores. The second team saw a great deal of action in these two tilts. Then came the first of the two clashes with High Point, Elon ' s great- est rival on tlie court. Strangely enough, this game had little of the competition which usually characterizes these contests. Elon played its greatest game of the year to more than double the score, winning 40 to 19. Elon was superb: the passing was accurate, few shots were missed and the backboard was all Elon ' s at both ends of the Hoor. The sharp- siiooting Panthers managed to get 12 points in the first half, but they counted only seven in the last half as Elon turned in one of its greatest defensive performances. Whitley was high scorer with 12 points. Truly great in the High Point game, Elon dropped to the other extreme in the next game. For tiie first time, the Christians knew defeat. Catawba, taking advantage of an off night for their foe, romped off ' with a 29 to 22 triumph. Whitley and Gardner, usually high scorers, could not find the basket and were held to low scores on the Salisbury court. However, Elon got its revenge by taking the Indians into camp here by a 43 to 39 margin. Guilford again fell victim, this time by a 69 to 31 score as the second string did most of tlie jalaying. In the return contest with High Point, the Christians barely managed to edge out a 40 to 39 win on the strength of Gardner ' s 20 points. For the second time in the season Elon lost as Appalachian copped a 60 to 41 victory at Boone in a well played game. However, the Chris- tians again sought, and found, revenge, beating the Mountaineers, 24 to 22 on the home court. The season ended with the 50 to 48 defeat at Western Carolina.

A buncii of sophomores and freshmen with only a sprinkling of juniors and seniors sewed up the North State conference with little trouble. At the time it was necessary to write this sum- mary in time for Phi-Psi-Cli to go to press, the Christians had jjlayed and won 18 ball games, a phenomenal record. Sports writers over the State were giving recognition to Elon, praising its record which ranks with the best ever made at this insti- tution. Of the 18 contests, 12 were North State confer- ence clashes. Only three loop games remained on the schedule, thus making it impossible for any other club to claim any share of the title. Although the wide swath which Coach Horace Hendrickson ' s nine cut through North State op- position was notable, the victories which drew most recognition were those over Cornell, ranking nine of tiie East, and Wake Forest, Big Five and South- ern Conference leaders. Early in the season Elon nosed out the Cornells 2 to 1 in one of the best played contests of tiie vear. Roland Longest, relaying on control and crafti- ness, hurled the victor}-. Given the place of the underdogs, the Christians romped over Wake Forest unmercifully for an 18 to 9 triumph, thus definitely stamping themselves as North Carolina ' s No. 1 club. Longest again received credit foi- the win although Leftv Tal Abernethy finished the clash. Power and pitching as well as general all around good ijaseball playing was the secret of tiie success of the Elon ' s. Practically the entire starting line- u]) slugged the ijall for iietter than .. ' 300 averages, Sophomoi-e Jack (Jardncr leading witli a mark of better than .400. Helping out Gai ' diier who jja- trolled centerficld were Stan Yonkoskv, a fresh- man with an average of better than .880, and Co- captain Joe Hardison, one of the two senior.s on the club. Hardison also hit above the select .300 mark. LeRoy Fones, a junior, alternated at times in the outfield. His average was also high. The infield, made up mostly of players converted from other positions, rounded into a smooth work- ing unit before the end of the season. Emo Show- fety at first looked good afield and provided the slugging punch needed by any good club. W. L. Hobson at second was easily within the .300 class and his fielding was excellent. Freshman Johnny Clayton won plaudits from sports writers and fans alike for his work at shortstop. He was recognized as the finest fielding shoiistop in the state and his .380 average at the plate showed no signs of weak- ness. Sophomore Bernie Daher at third filled in a big hole in fine style and his .325 mark left no room for complaint. Behind the plate, CoacJi Hendrickson had his biggest worry : the })roblem was not where to find a catcher, but which one of three to use. Al Progar, a sophomore, Ed Potter, a junior, and .loe Toma- nchek, a freshman, all were first class receivers. The ])itching stall ' , like tiie catching corps, was well rounded.

Tournament titles arc hotly contested and much interest in all phases of their program are attracting more students. The sports activities for gii ' ls arc entirely intrannii ' al, i)ut much rivalry acc()m])anies each contest because of tlic clul), class, and dormitory teams particij)ating. Teiniis, basket- ball, volleyball, softball, archery, hiking, folk and riiythm dancing and regular gymnasium work form the larger ])art of the scheduled activities for the group. Fundamentals for Ijeginners, lessons in technique for advanced students, and methods in directing athletics for girls are taught throughout the year. Tlic outstanding event of the year for students ])artlcij)ating in girls atliletlcs was the production of " Hansel and Gretel " for the 1940 May Day Celebration. Advanced students arranged and directed the dance routines, designed the costumes and scenery, and arranged the ])ageanti-y for the program. I ' he regular classes made the costumes, arranged the scenci ' v and were members of tiic dance chorus. Tin ' s was the first program of its kind to be presented as j fii ' t of the INIay Day activities, and the entire department deserves congratulations for its work.
