No kidding, folks, one thing happened that really changed our entire perspective. That was if you haven ' t guessed the ruthless attack on Pearl Harbor.

MESICK JULIA MAE OXFORD Students: You hold a secure place in my heart. At times you have done much differently than I wished for you, but almost always you eventually came through and made the proper adjustment. You have come from many places and with dif- ferent backgrounds, but you are making good. Even though you have obviously wasted many precious opportmiities, I am expecting to hear from you in high places as citizens of whom Elon College and our country can be justly proud. My best wishes are for you, and if you ever need a friend, I shall go as far for you as my conscience will allow, and that ' s pretty far! Yours as always, J. D. Messick, Dean. To the Class of 1942: My heartiest congratulations upon your graduation and my best wishes for your success in both immediate and remote worthwhile goals. I hope that some niche in the world will be better because you are there as it will be dearer to me be- cause of your presence. Sincerely, Julia Mae Oxford, Dean of Women.

No words can express it, no literature reveal it, there is simply a tightening of the muscles in one ' s throat, an understanding look of the eyes, and a firm clasp of hands. And so we part, Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, Freshmen, Faculty — all. Some to the fighting front, others to the factory, all to the side of our threatened nation. In years to come our love and appreciation for our Alma Mater will increase continually as we tuni these pages and recall the wonderful opportunities that were ours. This year brought forth a series of incidents of international importance affecting us all; many minds have become confused and uncertain, many dreams have been temporarily placed aside, and yet as a result there has emerged one great blessing, we stand together loving our nation and willing to give our lives gladly to uphold the ideals of democracy which have become deeply imbedded within us as Elon students. Some day when I am alone filled wit i th fci nse of uncertainty and re- sponsibility which no one escapes entirely I ' lli g t his annual off the shelf and, after carefully dusting its cover, se(SgJnTyself in my easy chair and turn to this section to dream and muse aS gretuni as a student of Elon College. Here I will find my former frien ls and classmates; here I will discover what is meant by the statement, " not all is learned in books. " What a grand feeling it will be to remove my spectacles, to close my tired eyes, and to recall the familiar scenes which pass before me. -Margaret Carroll. Treasurer: Edward Sh-AW, President; Betty Hovt, Secreturt SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS No senior class since 1917 has ever witnessed such a spectacular year. No graduat- ing class has ever felt such individual responsibility to the nation and to himself. We have seen our classmates make quick decisions affecting their very lives and we have discovered what it means to have the responsibility of defending our country. Discouraged, uncertain, confused? Not at all! Let this fact go on record that this senior class of May 18. 1942 has set the course, the chrometer reads full speed ahead; we consider ourselves fortunate indeed to have the opportunity and are resigned to the fulfillment of our pledge. Our hearts go out to Joe Hopkins, although he failed to return during his flight test, we know that he was flving directly into the sun and was conscious of the fact that the eyes and hearts of his Elon Classmates were saying well done — Joe — bon voyage! 15 SENIORS Mabel Tennala Abner. 810 Maple Ave., Burlington, N.

On the faces of all io entfaR?cF " 1 tipTary stacks there was noticecha very sincere and serious understand- ing of what this was all about. In less than ten minutes the entire campus was in total darkness — the student body was safe within the shelter, and the Air-Raid wardens had the situation well in hand. Through dark corridors messengers darted carrying orders from the control tower; fire-watchers stood by with sand bags to do their duty; spotters manned their positions and stood high in the dome of Alamance . . . thus the grim realities of what might happen entered the mind of every student. HlMIL DmiijKN. I iir I ' lrsidrnt BiLLV JoH.NSTO.N. Treasurer (,l.oK(,i lil ll. llli. I ' rrsnirni -Marjukik Copelanu, Secretary JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS This year we are Juniors! Ths year we found once again the firm foundation from which we were swept as Freshmen. We recall how our convenient philosophy of life changed rapidly and left us a confused and disillusioned Sophomore Class. Now we understand what the word Sophomore meant, " wise fool, " because we have discovered the true values of life as Juniors and are settling down to the task of building our future upon this new foundation. What has the war meant for us? Well, I suppose no one can truthfully answer that question. We are in the " middle of the stream " so to speak. There is only a year before us until we can be graduated and vet most of us feel that we cannot wait that long and feel that we are being very patriotic. However, the Go ernment tells us that our place is here until we receive our diplomas and although we are anxiously waiting for our call, we are agreed that Uncle Sam knows what is best. 29 J U N I R S Bernard Askin.

" We. of the Sophomore Class, are supposed to be unsettled in our philosophy of life and over ronfident in our abiltiies. Perhaps so, however we are certain of a few things; namely, that all Freshmen are mighty green and should be more respectful to us and that the upperclassmen are old fashioned and too settled. Nothing gi es us more pleasure than to disclose to the blurred eye Freshman that he is next in our list, or to beat some upperclassman at his own game. My what a proud lot we are! But truthfully, we are filled with college spirit. The cheers of the Sophomores are always heard above the others in the grand- stands. We love Eion and are anxiously looking forward to the time when we have the opportunity to step irilo llie shoos of those upperclassmen and show them what we really can do. 35 SOPHOMORES First row, left to right: Louis Agresta, Hazelton, Pa.

Then weeks, we were informed th perhaps after all, the Sophomores would be pals. The happenings of the Freshmen Class can be classified as outstanding, but the real success is the bull sessions, water throwing, Senate invitations, and a little studying now and then. your stomach?

FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS Pardon us, sir. but if (tu don ' l mind, we would like to slip in a word here about our fine class of two humlred and fifty strong. We know the Freshmen are supposed to be seen and not heard — and not even seen too often — but we feel that it is in order that we express the happiness that we have found this year at Elon. In our traditional manner we have gone about our daily life filled with hero worship and anxious to become upperclassmen. We have tried in our way to become regular fellows and to appear as " green " ' as Freshmen are supposed to be. We feel that next year will see us blossom out as campus leaders and that we will meet the test in the true Elon spirit. FRESHMEN Albright. Fred. Allx-marle. N. C. Allen. Carl. Bunnlevel. N. C.

" Look out of your window and see, " he called back. There it was. West was ablaze. Flames reached high into the night. The fire engines from Burlington and Gibsonville could be heard distinctly, and the excited cries of " All out, gang, all hands needed, " caused me to put my trousers on backwards. It seemed hours before we were able to breathe easier, but finally the fire was under control. All furniture had been removed from the threatened building and the girls were safe in the reading room of the library. Gosh, that cup of hot coffee hit the spot as we patrolled the campus until the sun came up. It w as exciting, it was a challenge and it was a job well done. THE SENATE OFFICERS Louis Adair President James Dellincer Vice President Howard Culereih Secretary Harold Garber Treasurer " This is to inform you that you are requested to appear before the Student Senate at nine o ' clock sharp en Tuesday night. " All the hoys will recognize this as a polite but firm invitation to llieir own funeral, and just because vou happen to be a good friend of Louis, the punishment meted out will be just as serious. After you have accepted the kiiul invitation extended you by the Senate, you begin to call on all your friends to borrow enough money to pay the fine that will be imposed on you. As you approach the Senate room your knees begin to beat out a tune and the perspira- tion begins to pop out on your forehead. When you finally work up enough nerve and enter the room, you are greeted by ten black robed, solemn faced individuals. Over in one corner Howard takes notes and you begin to worry about whether or not he will send home the proceedings of the trial, because if he does, your allowance will be cut off. After you have been run through the mill and a sermon has been preached to you, you are released. Finally you escape to your room and realize that maybe the Student Senate members aren ' t such bad fellows after all because you really were guilty. Louis Auau; The Senate has experienced one of its most successful years under his capable leadership. Adair Dellinger Darden Basnight Bullard Sella OCnnnei " THE COUNCIL OFFICERS Ancie Henry Presich-nt LiLA BiiDD Stephens .... lice President AviERrTH NiCHOEAS Secretary Makjokie Copeland Treasurer " What ' s up. Mary? " Ssssshhhhh. . . . (There ' s a council meeting going on downstairs.) Tick! Tick! Tick! Tick! " Wonder if they will call me? " " How much longer do I have to wait? " Every girl has this feeling when the council meets. This governing body has control of all girls who live on the campus and the Day Students while they are on the campus. Wait! The familiar old squeaks of those steps are heard. " Now I know that I ' ll be right down there before that jury to hear my misdemeanors revealed. " Yes. I had that uncertain feeling — because you never know whether you ' re going to get your story straight or not. Maybe you have friends on the council — but at a time like this — they — your best friends — don ' t have any sympathy for you. As I slowly walked in with my head down, watching to see when my legs would give way. I could feel the eyes of those twelve girls staring at me. Angie was in the middle, while Amerith was looking through her notebook to see what the charges against me were. What next? What had I done? Yes, those ( calchie I questions — by this time you ' re scared to tell the real and whole truth. After a full 30 minutes ques- tioning plenty has taken place. One at a time you are marched out to a very secluded room with a council member close by your side. Left all alone, wondering how many weeks, even months, you will get to spend look- ing at those four walls, and then, after tiring of this, counting the cracks in the floor. Suddenly the door is opened and you are now returning to hear the verdict — whether good or bad. Naturally, just as I had guessed, I found myself two weeks later still counting those cracks in the floor. What a life to live, but oh, how I enjoy it. .Phi-Psi-Cli JUNE MURPHY Editor H. M. AUSTIN Business Manager PHI-PSI-CLI It has been a lot of work but a lot of fun. We have enjoyed learning all about the people who populate the campus, and if you don ' t believe that vou will learn faces, try identifying about five hundred students, most of them freshmen. We want to thank everyone for their advice, sympathy, inspirations, and support, both physical and moral. The photographer, engraver, and printer have our rising vote of thanks. They worried with us and answered all of our absurd questions without a trace of disgust. How they put up with us is more than we can understand. When October rolled around, the photographer visited the campus and by means foul and fair obtained pictures of all the college inhabitants. Everyone complained about having their picture made but deep down under they were hoping and praying that someone would beg them to watch the birdie. After the pictures had been taken and the proofs sent to the Phi Psi Cli office, the mad rush by those who wanted to see their flattering I ? I likeness began. When the pictures were finally allowed to be viewed, the annual staff began to process of soothing and consoling those who complained about a hair out of place or the smirk that covered their countenance. After everyone had chosen the picture that most suited their particular fancies, the process of pasting the pictures in the dummy began. (Note to freshmen: The dummy is the copy from which the yearbook is made.) Please do not think that we became too discouraged, because, as we said before, we have really enjoyed every drop of perspiration, every trace of disgust at our own stupidity, and every ounce of worry that has gone into the making of this annual and we truly hope that you, the student body, will get as much enjoyment out of reading the Phi Psi Cli as we did out of pro- ducing it. 50 STAFF June Murphy, Edit or H.

There isn ' t any copy and all the able assistants are sitting around waiting for Roy to write some front page material that is printable. About this time the chief photographer, John Pollard, ambles in and demands a credit line for his front page pictures. He complains about a mistake in his famous column, " Jolts and Jars. " Finally enough copy is written and set up. " Honest John " is pleased with the treatment the staff has given his column. Everything is going along fine when suddenly the press decides it i.s too tired to run any more and breaks down. This continues through the night until the Maroon and Gold is at last ready to be delivered. Those who have not been in the Maroon and Gold oflice on such a night as this, do not realize the labor and devotion that is put into the paper. The next morning you are ambushed in the halls of Alamance by some person who is humiliated by something about them in the super gossip column, " Snip and Snoop. " You finally wiggle out of that predicament and all is well until someone else Shanghai ' s you and demands to know why their name didn ' t appear in the scandal sheet. The Maroon and Gold is the weekly newspaper of the school. The staff is composed of members of the Journalism Class under the direction of Dr. Fletcher Collins. This publication covers every phase of student life. The paper is superior to the rest of the college publications in the stale, in that it is the only pape r printed on the campus by the students alone. Mansfield Collins ELON COLONNADES OFFICERS JiMMiE Elulh Co-eiUtor Ruth Martin Co-editor Dr. Fletcher Collins .... Faculty Adviser A lot of old studniit? didiit return to school this year because of ihe draft, matrinumy. and various other things. All of us miss them naturally, but to Ruth and Jimmy, it «as a double headache as they were the only members of the staff left to put out the Colonnades. To top that, Dr. Collins had a leave of absence the first semester. With no staff and no adviser, what a task they had staring them in their faces. From hither and yon, essays, poetry, short stories and plays were mustered for publication. Any student was privileged to contribute their original brainstorms. The editors soon came to the conclusion that Elon students really did come forth in the time of need. Everyone " chipped in " to make this year ' s Colonnades one of the best yet. and if you do not wish to take our word for it. just cast a glance over some of the stories contained in the majiazine. .Phi-Psi-Cli. 53 STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OFFICERS Tom Smythe . .

Prof. Pratt is very patient with us when we come in late and start talk- ing about everything in general, with no regard to the practice when we get there. This is one of the most active groups on the campus and has one of the most vital parts in the school ' s program. This year semester credit was given to members. Special concerts held during holidays, music furnished for church and chapel services, and any other duty upon which it is called to do, happens to be the choir ' s duty and pleasure. Noteworthy among its activities this year was the rendition of Hendel ' s " Messiah " at Christmas and " Elijah " by Mendelsohn at Commencement. The choir is ac- companied by Professor Fletcher Moore at the organ and Mrs. Loadwick at the piano. ri{()F. STl ART PRATT Uiifctor BAND Carolyn McClf.mny, Emogene Thomas, Milli- CENT BrITTAIN.

Occasionally there is a joint meeting of Dr. Johnson ' s and Panvio which is sometimes in the form of a debate on such things as campus conditions and current affairs.

The club is affiliated with Huffman Field in Burlington which serves as its base airport. Many students of this class are in our governments service today and lead their classes at their respective posts. Here is a fine example of modern Elon College; always among the leaders in new fields of education, quick to take the initiative, and never lagging behind. Daily these aviation students circle the campus as- suring us of the progress that is being made. The fact that not one of these " trainers " has met with a serious accident since the inception of the course during the spring of ' 40, is again proof of the value of excellent instruction working with a small group.

Phi-Psi-Cli Mrs. Sue Craft Howell. Instructor Hazel While Dobbs, Student Instructor COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT Click! Click! Click! Click! Click! This sound is very familiar to every commercial student. Some afternoon the sound on third floor Alamance is almost deafening. Elon is proud of this department. Stu- dents here progress rapidly and at the end of one year are capable of holding a jnl) compentently. It is their aim to establish a closer rela- tionship between its personnel and the busi- ness world. To accomplish this end the club sponsors: (1) Inspection trips to business of- fices, (2) Talks by active business executives, and (3| Actual office participation in Elon, Burlington, and Greensboro offices. In addition to this, a number of motion . --■ l J pictures relating to business are shown, and visiting speakers are hrought to the campus to adthess the membership. Through this association with members of the business world the students gain experience that will lead them to success in the business field. In many respects our commercial department resembles that of an ollu-r. i ut upmi closer examination one discovers that these students receive individual instruc- tion and are not produced " en masse " as they are in other instances. There is a close association between the student and the instructor that one cannot explain in words, but which we feel is indispensable in the producing of efficient secretaries. The fact that manv of the commercial students are reluctant to leave Elon after one year of instruction, but r eturn again to continue in advanced courses, is ample proof of the efficiency of this department. Throughout this aniuial «e have told ou of the part that our boys are playing in national defense. We have mentioned first aitl. military drill, the for victory club, etc. Now we feel that here is an opportunity to tell you about the good work that our commercial students are engaged in. Have you e er thought of tlie meaning of the word " attitude? " Well we think that it is a mighty important W(jrd. In fact, in almost anything that one does, it is his attitude that finally determines the success or the failure of his effort. In the commercial department we find that the girls and boys are anxious to do their part toda by becoming the type secretaries that L ncle Sam is calling for. During the dark days ahead there will be a growing demand for well-trained secretaries. As a result of this demand many classrooms throughout the country will be over crowded and individual instructors will become something of the past. But not so at Elon. Here the close relationship between student and instructor will continue and secretaries will remain as individuals and not become as machines.

Flf.tciikk ( ' ollins Facully .-tdiiser Dramatics at Elon in ' 42? Well — the Elon Players, under the leadership of Dr. Fletcher Collins, Faculty Adviser; Rachael Crowell, Dramatic Club President; and Angie Henry, Delta Psi Omega President; really splurged this year in the field of original drama. There were no Big Broadway success productions due to lack of — censored — but perhaps that was a good thing. ELON COLLEGE PLAYERS Tom Smythe, Ruth Koontz, and Ruth Martin quite competently took the place of more re- nowned playwriters at Elon. Smythe ' s Made A Cross was a very effective Good Friday sermon. Remember Lila Budd as a screwball mama and poor Miller typed again as a " timid soul " in The Broom? Also, how about Kenny as a Chinese valet in Ruth ' s timely Japanese Incident and as a big executive in the Air Raid play. That was an interesting experiment — the air raid play I mean. This was the Dramatic Lit. class ' s group composition whicli de- veloped from a spark of an idea. Some of us went to Station WBBB and helped launch the Alamance County Sink or Serve Cam- paign, and Angie — pardon us — Miss Henry ev ' en directed the Junior play at Elon High School. Of course, we made our usual trips to Chapel Hill and W. C. to see what they were doing in Dramatics but the biggest thing this year was the annual Shakespearean production. This time it was Twelfth Night with some pretty exciting discoveries being made — Lynn Yate ' s saucy portrayal of Maria, Malloy and Shaw as a couple of the biggest fools in the world, Sir Toliy Belch and Sir Andrew Aguecheek — and what discoveries! Phi-Psi-Cli 65 ART DEPARTMENT China painting, portrait painting, spatter painting, etching, and sculptoring are some phases of art that are brouglit out in the work of this department. Any afternoon a visitor to the art department might well mistake these students to be Indians about to go on the war path. But in reality they are sincere students of art with ink (not to mention putty), on hands, arms, and faces. They go about their work expressing their feelings through a particular phase of art. Our art teacher has a quality of helping a person paint and draw wliclliir he can or not. Talent has been discovered in many students on the campus by the careful guiding hand of Miss Newman. Many of us call her " Lila, " because she seems to be one of the students, and not our teacher.

Each member will never forget the rush parties, bid night, initiation, and the time when he became a full-fledged memlier and could boast about it to members of the student body and his friends back home. The annual banquet and then the summer house party stand out vividly in the recollections of the past. Elon is wonderful, people. It seems to get in your blood and soul.

Third man in the second squad of the first platoon, half step backward . . . march! " And so started Military Drill. For one hour twice a week; approximately forty-five students making the three platoons; strutted proudly over the campus taking orders and learning what the word discipline means. Dust, sweat, tired feet and sore muscles ... all go toward making a soldier. Wliat is it within a man that causes him to give so tirelessly and generously? Perhaps it is that one phrase, " well done men " which means so much when said by the commanding officer. Whatever the answer, the drill goes on. " Tramp . . . tramp . . . tramp the boys are marching " and the future of our country is at their command . . . as they await the call to serve the nation. THE FOOT Hail to the King! The undisputed holder of the conference crown, that is the precious honor the Fight- ing Christians have bestowed upon Elon. For the first time, under the tutelege of Coaches Hendrickson and Brunansky, the Cannonade has brought home the bacon. In other years they were always close, but never the unchallenged victors; the 1937 team being forced to share the title with Catawba. This great eleven goes down in the books as one of the best ever to represent Elon on the gridiron. They proudly point to a season record showing eight victories and one loss, the defeat being to the University of Miami, one of the powerhouses of the nation. In addition to conference wins over Western Carolina, Guilford, Lenoir-Rhyne, High Point, Catawba and Appalachian, the Christians boast victories over Mount Saint Mary ' s and King. These Hendricksonmen did it the hard way. In pre-season predictions, the scribes forecast that Elon would be lucky to gain third place in the conference race. But this team with that never-say-die-spirit, hurdled obstacle after obstacle, to show their supremacy over the so - called favorites. It is only right that most of the credit for this great team be given to the Coaches Hendrickson and Brunansky. These men took an eleven with freshmen at two key positions — Withers at center and Cecil at blocking back — and led them to a suc- cessful season. To single out individual stars on this well-rounded team is impossible, but great praise must be given Co-captains, Jack Boone and Bernie Daher. Aside from the wallop they packed into the offensive power of the team — the former with his running and the latter with his passing, these two leaders kept alive one of the finest spirits ever shown jjy the wearers of the Maroon and Gold. Congratulations are also in order for the four men who were voted to the All- Conference team. Jack Boone — for the second straight year the unanimous choice for captain ; Joe Tomanchek — the team ' s highest scorer, and also tied for the same honor in the conference; Ed Shaw — the big towering end with the glue-like fingers; and Lody Glenn — a man with a motto: " They shall not pass. " ' Now we come to the sad part of the 1 1: article. This is the place in the write-up, where predictions for next year ' s eleven should appear, but, for Elon, there will be no next year. The Athletic Committee has decided that football should be put aside for the duration. That is final. Next autumn there will be a gloomy silence reigning where once yells, cheers, songs, and band music were king. At the same time, we mourn the loss of our own Coach Hendrickson. Our loss is the University of Pennsylvania ' s gain. After completing five of the most successful years any coach has ever enjoyed. Coach Hendrickson hoisted sail and journeyed to Philadelphia, where he will be the Quaker ' s head basketball mentor and assistant foot- ball coach. Luck to you " Horse " ! A brief summarv of each game follows: )ri. BALL SEASON ELOi , 28; WESTERN CAROLINA, 7 Elon opened its 1942 football season by overwhelming a stubborn Western Carolina Teachers College to gain the convincing score of 28-7. Thunder showers limited a Homecoming crowd to 1,500 fans. In this battle, the first in Elon ' s new stadium, the fight- ing Christians showed great promise of things to come when they unleashed a powerful running and passing at- tack against the Catamounts. Although somewhat hampered by the muddy field, the Cannonade pushed across four touchdowns, and Jack Boone added four extra points with unerring accuracy. The highlight of the game was a 57 yard run by Elbert Fearing, freshman halfback of the Christains. Joe Tomanchek tallied twice and Jack Boone once to comj)lete the scoring for Elon. Gudger, Catamount end, caught a pass for the Teachers ' lone score. MIAMI, 39; ELON, In weather more suited for baseball than football, the fighting Christians suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of the powerful. Miami University team. The Purple Hurricane had just too much re- serve strength for the outmanned Cannonade. In the beautiful setting of the Orange Bowl Stadium, the two teams battled on even terms for the first quarter, but from there on in the Miamians drove with fury to score almost at will. Dunato Glenn Agresta Beauduy Spivey Dick Plasnian and ' " Red " Coates were the offensive stars for Miami, while Boone. Donato. and Bryan gathered praise for the Cannonade. ELON, 13; LENOIR-RHYNE, Next the men of Elon traveled to Hickorv to tackle the Bears of Lenoir-Rhyne. In ideal football weather the Fighting Christians made it two straight bv smother- ing the Bears under a 13-0 score. Elon ' s powerful line held a tricky set of Lenoir-Rhyne backs at bay and played the majority of the game in Red and Black territory. Elon showed a great pass de- fense in stopping " Chuck " Rudisill, aerialist ace of the Hickoryites. Features of the game were the long runs of Jack Boone and the excellent punting of " Molly " Craft. Jack carried the ball for long gains on several punt returns and ' " Molly " punted Ijeautifully. one traveling 70 yards on the flv. Co-rnptdins, Dalier and Bci The outstanding stars for Lenoir-Rhyne were Arndt, Rudisill, and Conrad. The defensive stars for Elon were Palantonio, Zurlis, and Gleim. ELON, 21; MT. ST. MARYS, 6 In an intersectional tilt, the Hendrick- sonmen gained wide-spread fame with a 21- 6 victory over the highly touted Moun- tai neers of Saint Mary ' s. The Christians ascended to great heights in this game, due largely to the passing of Bernie Daher. THE FOOT The Saints unleashed a diversified attack against the Cannonade, but the Christians were just one jump ahead of them all night. A great deal of credit for this fact should be given to assistant coach, Joe Brunansky, for his excellent scouting job. Jack Boone and Joe Tomanchek co- starred with Bernie Daher in the backfield for Elon, while Withers, Shaw, and Beaudy did great defensive work. ELON, 47; HIGH POINT, Elon took to the air for tlie second straight game to soundly trim a weak, but willing High Point team, 47-0. The Christians ' running attack was stopped cold by an eight man Panther line, but once again with Bernie Daher pitching and Shaw, Boone, and Beaudy catching, the Cannonade continued on its victory march. The Christians were dealt a severe jolt in this game when Bill Palantonio, star linesman, was declared ineligible for the remaining conference games. Bill was late in registering for school, due to draft board trouble. To cope with this situation. Coach Hendrickson moved Curry Bryan up to his old guard slot, and Doug Cecil stepped into the blocking back position to play a great game. ELON, 8; CATAWBA, 7 Saturday. November 8, 1942. Yes, that ' s it. Put a large red circle around that date. Right, you guessed it. It was the day the Fighting Christians humbled the Indians of Catawba by the score of 8-7. It was the aforementioned switch of Currv Bryan from halfback to guard that did it. Late in the fourth quarter, " Geechie " broke through the Catawba line to block Dwight Holhouser ' s punt for the game-win- ning safety. It was a well executed play, one that had lieen planned and practiced by the Christians. Bryan was well aided by Louis Agresta and Ed Shaw on this play. Jack Boone was responsible for the other great play of the tilt. Jack gathered in the pig-skin on his own 18 yard line, and galloped un- molested for the first Elon points. ELON, 13; KING, To keep their victory string intact, the Christians next rolled over the Golden Avalanche from Kins; College. The Kingsters came to Perry Hoffman Georgio Albright 92 BALL SEASON Elon boasting ictories over Catawba and Appalachian, so it was Elon who saved the reputation of the North Stale Loop to the tune of 13-0. The wearers of the Maroon and Gold stopped the notorious La Vanche and his Avalanchers cold in all the departments of the game. Boone, Daher, and Tonianchek again led the Can- nonade to glory in an intersectional tilt. Zurlis. Glenn, and Bryan were the defensive stars of the game. ELON. .59; GUILFORD. 6 The Cannonade rolled up the highest score of the season in defeating Guilford 59-6. Coach Hendrickson played the reserves a great deal in this game, liut in spite of that, the score just mounted up. The feature of the game was the four touchdowns scored by Joe Tonianchek; these tallies enabled him to pull up along side of " Ike " ' Greer, Catawba ace, for con- ference scoring honors. ' " Speed " Hollowell and " Haj) " Holland starred for Guilford, while Berry, Fearing, Beaudv, Hoffman, Perry, Georgio, and Kozakewich were freshmen who stood out for Elon. ELON, 26; APPALACHIAN, 6 The bacon finally arrived on this great dav. This was the victory that brought the conference crown to Elon. The Christians battered their way through a stub- born Mountaineer team to emerge with a 26-6 win. Tlie Christians mixed running and passing to great advantage in keeping the boys from Boone in a quandary all afternoon. Greer, hard running fullback of the Mountaineers, scored the lone Appalachian tally. He was held pretty well in check the rest of the day by the stout Christian forward wall. Bernie Daher, Jack Boone, Joe Tomanchek, Bernie Askin, Ed Shaw, Charlie Donato, and Lody Glenn played great ball in this last game at Elon for the duration. First row: Assistant Coach Joe Brunansky.

The 1941-42 edition of the big Red team was studded with boys who possessed the old fight and courage, and never heard of the word quit. Coach Hendrickson received one of the severest reverses of his coaching career when he lost two of his starting five at mid-season, but he kept right in there plugging until his team had defeated every conference team at least once. He was forced to change his whole system of play in mid-season, due to the loss of regulars, Jack Gardner and Preston " Spec " Towns. Jack accepted a job with the Hanes Hosiery Company and " Spec, " a reserve officer in the army, asked to be assigned to foreign duty and was accepted. Jack Gardner and W. L. Hobson were co-captains of this fighting squad at the beginning of the season, but when Jack left school, " Hobby " took over sole leadership. A swell job he did in leading the Fighting Christians to a great season that included 17 wins and 5 losses. The Cannonade averaged 49 points per game to the opposition ' s 40. The most precious win for the wearers of the Maroon and Gold came when they handed the Panthers of High Point their lone setback of the year. The High Pointers came to Elon Let " s Start. Two for Elon. Kravitz Kazokowich AskiM Shaw Malloy with lilooil in tlii ' ir eves: ihev were all set to gain revenge for the trouncing the Christians handed their pigskinners in the fall. Their mottoes were: " Remember Pearl Harbor " and " Remember the Elon Football Game " ! Well, the result of the lilt is history now. The Christians nosed out the Panthers ■)4-3.3 in one of the most exciting games ever played in the Elon gymnasium. In the second annual North .State Conference Tourna- ment held in High Point, the Cannonade advanced to the semi-final round before being ousted 1) the High Point team. Tiie Christians were victorious over the Bulldogs of Atlantic Christian in the opening round. The Panthers of High Point won the tournament by eliminating A])palachian in tlic finals. Tiie High Point- ers then went to Kansas City to compete in the National Collegiate Tournament, where they made a good show- ing for themselves. Warren Burns and Ernie Johns were the highest point makers for the Christians during the .-eason. with Captain Hobson not far behind. Joe Toniancheck and John Clayton were the other two members of the starting five. Other players who saw a great deal of action during the campaign were Tal Bean. " Chuck " l.rnlz. Rich Evans, Elro) Hooper, " Moose " Kra itz. and Ed Shaw. 95 BASKETBALL The season ' s record is as follows: Elon . . . . 45 Elon . . . . 46 Elon . . . . 48 Elon . . . . 110 Elon . . 41 Elon . . . . 68 Elon . . . . 45 H.

The Elon basketeers started the season with a fast victory over the High Point " Y " team; they then dropped a close 49-46 game to the Georgetown Lions from Kentucky. The Cannonade then enjoyed an eight game winning streak that included victories over Sanford, Pembroke. McCrary, House of David, High Point " Y, " and Appalachian. It was at this point that the Christians lost the services of Gardner and Towns. Before they could recover from their loss, the Elonites dropped a 45-26 decision to the Indians from Catawba. After the Catawba game, Coach Hendrickson ' s new system began to take effect and the Christians ran up another victory string of 5 wins before they dropped a 53-46 tilt to the Mountaineers from Appalachian. After this game the Cannonade split a two game series with Atlantic Christian, besides winning from Lenoir-Rhyne and Guilford, and losing to High Point. Lot ' s of Hustle.

These boys know that Uncle Sam wants them to be in good physical condition when they are inducted into one of the branches of the service. So in between their studies they do or die on the intramural field. INTRAMURAL CHAMPIONS Football Iota Tau Kappa Baskelhall Carlton House Sojtball Sigma Phi Beta Kneeling: Clayton, Bean.

BASEBALL The beat of the basketball on the gym floor has ceased; the maroon uniforms have been tucked away; the first robin has been sighted. What does this mean? Only one thing; it is BASEBALL time at Elon. The basketeers ' gripe of blistered feet changes to the pitchers ' moans of sore arms. The fans talk changes from hook shots and high scores, to batting averages and home runs. And Coach Brunansky no longer plays for Harmons and Lusettis; he will now settle for one Robert Feller, or a reasonable like facsimile. At the time this edition goes to press, the baseball season has yet to start. So we will have to limit this write-up to what we may expect, rather than what has happened. We can give you a prospec- tive starting nine and a tentative schedule. Now to take the Cannonade apart and see what will make it tick this season. We hop on our trusty old tricycle and travel to the Elon Stadium, where the team is holding daily workouts. Starting S;iff on Error. Another Safety. with the battervmen. we have on the receiving end Bernie Askins, Vic Zodda, and J. W. Knight. Bernie and Vic are expected to divide the starting chores between them, and J. W. will be used in relief roles. Holdovers from last year ' s team in the pitching de- partment are " Molly " Craft and Claude Comer. " iMolly " ' will be used in the outfield due to the shortage of garden- men. This means that Coach Brunanskv will have to rely a great deal on the freshmen for hurlers. The most promising of the newcomers are Withers. Brown. Zvsener, Berry, and Dalton. Hopping over to first base we find freshman Rich Evans, the Ohio flash, who is supposed to be major league talent. The initial sack has been a sore spot in the Chris- tian line up for the past few years, but we believe Coach can stop worrying with a capable man like Ricli doing a toe dance on the right side of the infield. The three other infield spots are well taken care of by experienced men; W. L. Hobson at second base; Johnny Clayton at shortstop; and Captain Bernie Daher at third base. These men have been playing together for three years, and they should work well with Evans to give Elon one of the classiest infields in the state. Leaving well enough alone, we will now hop on our tricycle, and journey out for a brief visit with the men who will ])atrol the distant fences this year. As already 1 )alifr Claytcin Crafi Askin HcI.H.n Comer Beauiliiy Zooila Cubell Beny Evans Knight Hrown Glenn Withers 99 Manager Smith mentioned, outfielders are few and far between this sea- son. The only veteran will be " Molly " Craft in center, and he will have to take his regular turn as a hurler. In this case, Joe Tomancheck will take his place in the outfield. Flanking Craft on either side we have two untried freshmen; Charlie Robbins in the left and W. C. Latta in right. Charlie played great ball with the McCrary Hosiery team last year, while Latta did equally as well with the Burlington High School nine. Having covered the nine positions, we now hop on our tricycle to travel to new head coach Joe Brunansky ' s office, where he is busy trying to arrange a schedule. Coach is having a great deal of trouble, due to the fact that many colleges are dropping baseball for the dura- tion. Coach has definitely arranged two games with each of the conference meziibers except High Point, the Panthers having given up baseball. He has outside games scheduled with Wake Forest, Hanes Hosiery, Naval Train- ing School, and the Naval Air Station. The latter two games are to be played in Norfolk, Virginia. Tilts are trying to be arranged with other Virginia schools, so the team can make a week ' s trip in the Old Dominion State. FAREWELL TO ATHLETICS In retrospection we recall, with fond memories, many of the athletic events during our four years here at Elon. What senior can forget that first football game of our freshman year when the Cannonade ran rough- shod over the Guilford Quakers with Joe Golombeck leading the way — or that same year when the Christians turned mudders and swam to a one point decision over the Appalachian Mountaineers in Greensboro — or the basketball team of that year when stars like Gardner and Manzi made their debute — or the baseball team during our sophomore year that claimed the State Champ- ionship with a record of 21 wins out of 22 starts — or, oh this could go on forever. We could fill up this entire book with events that have happened during the past four years on the respective athletic fields. Athletics have played a large part in our college life. Who can imagine a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the fall without a football game to attend, or a hot summer afternoon and not a baseball contest in the new Elon Stadium? Well, that ' s the way it will be around here next year, and we can thank men like Hitler, Hirohito, and Mussolini for our new mode of life. No doubt about it. There will be something missing at Elon next year, but there is one consolation in all this darkness. We can all look forward- to the time when the crisis is over and Elon once again will come into her own in the athletic field. 100 TENNIS The return of four lettermen plus the addition of a coach, made tennis prospects at Elon unusually bright this season. For the first time in the history of the school, we had a coach in this sport. Dr. Weslhafer, professor of Math and former collegiate tennis ace at Ohio State Uni- versity consented to take over the coaching duties. The lettermen include Jimmy Light- bourne, veteran of the past three seasons. Biii.Y Johnston ' ■ i;. f ilff f B. Johnston Lightbourne R. Johnston Barney Lee Batten the Johnston brothers, Billy and Bobby, and John Barney. These boys held down the four top positions while the number five spot was a wide open fight between Bob Lee, Ike Perry, and Jack Coplin. " Chuck " Batten, a letterman last year at Norfolk Division of William and Mary, was eligible for n on -conference competition. c h nKi i K A iisMi i iH GIRLS ' ATHLETICS Never let it be said that the girl ' s gym classes had good luck this year. First the class suddenly found it- self without a roof — meaning that the gym was destroyed by the fire. This happened after archery, ping-pong, shiiffleboard, and Softball tournaments had been com- pleted. Not knowing where to go to resume the previous- ly planned schedule, the General Director, Mrs. Horace Hendrickson, and the Student Coach, Rachael Crowell, finally escorted the girls to the Boys ' Gym where they completed the volley ball and basketball contests. 102 Ill the niidsit of the volley ball and basketball tdurnanients another blow suddenly hit the girls. The Director left for her native Northern sec- tion. The girls knowing how to adapt them- selves to novel situations cooperated fully with the Student Coach, and Girl ' s Athletics were resumed under her supervision. Besides the sports activities another outstand- ing factor was the presentation of the May Day festival. The regular classes made costumes and participated in the dance choruses while the ad- vanced students arranged and directed the dance routines, designed costumes and scenery, and wrote the manuscript. Under the full direction of these girls alone, the celebration was a huge success and each girl participating in the affair deserves credit for the part which she played. For the first time in the history of the college letters were awarded to participants in Girl ' s Athletics. Like everything else there was a catch in the way to get one. The girls eligible were those who had won four of the seven tourna- ment games. Only six of the girls earned a letter and to these few girls we give our con- gratulations as the first girls to have been given a letter for active participation in Girl ' s Athletics. They are Ruth Koontz, Mary Warren, Edna Rumley, Lillian Dyer, Marjorie Reidt, and Sara Muse. 103 Wonder why fc lks It la teJ R t ;il :iv? a e llic best for the last? Well anywavji4 ' ' ' n t M m shm eUm Aivw we see our friends as they ream TT nc pl ' jr tpy mm -Mt iTa i wtt ow them — in other words, here e cat Tfen wttfi their hair down. Wliat ords could describe better than pictures The loveliness of our cheer leaders? What Field Secretary could better portray the informality of the students in the college soda shop and the drug? There ' s just something aljout this random collec- tion of snap-shots that tells more than a combination of Byron, Keats, or Shelly could describe. For instance there ' s that picture of Minnie Bell Fry eating a hamburger. Now who or what could better express her satisfac- tion and peace with the world in general? Incidentally, the bmi is just a camouflage for a piece of cheese and not a hamburger at all. The tnith of the matter is that every Sunday for supper we have a sack lunch in order to let the waiters have one afternoon a week off — now w ' hat could be more democratic?
