He is a public spirited citizen, a life-long member of the church and a faithful Christian worker. He has taught the Philathea Bible Class of the First Christian Church for more than forty years. Mr. Truitt is a graduate of State College and has become an industrialist of the first rank. He was connected with Carolina Steel and Iron Works of his city for a number of years.

Under his initiative and guidance his company has grown to be a factor in the industrial life of Greensboro and of the nation. Mr. Truitt is a member of the Board of Trustees of our college and has worked tirelessly for its advancement. He has contributed generously to its support. We, the Class of 1948, take great pleasure in dedicating our college annual, the Phipsicli, to Mr. William Brooks Truitt. We dedicate our- selves to the future advancement of our college. With Camera IN THESE PAGES we present life at Elon 1947-1948. We believe it ' s a true picture, and hope you agree. Our senior class is a composite of the beginnings of many freshmen classes at Elon. However, this last year together has given us a sense of unity and accomplishment. Life at Elon is something special, something that has meaning and a sense of faith to each Elonite. and Pen WE ALL HAVE MEMORIES, memories too numerous and too diverse to record individually, but, we hope that this annual will in future years give you in pictures and prose the best of Elon. By the best, we mean you as seen from the eyes of your professors, your classmates and from Elon — as a whole. : M ' lave become a part of us with your by-words, smiles and friendly greetings. We ' ll miss you and look forward to the time when we will return just as we are looking forward to that last journey down the aisle of Whitley to pick up those " sheep-skins. " No, it ' s not that we ' re happy to leave Elon and you but we ' re happy of the fact that we have accom- plished our undertakings and can say with pride and pleasure, it is to you the students that . . .

Often times apparent misfortunes are transformed into challenging privileges. The fruits of diligence and cooperation are abundantly rewarding. You of the Class of 1948 have met the challenges of the college campus, helped to solve some of its problems, and have set high standards in scholarship and social achievements for suc- ceeding classes. The administration is proud of you and wishes for you every possible success and happiness in life. Leon Edgar Smith, President. Administmtion DEANS To the Class of 1948: My heartiest congratulations upon your graduation and my best wishes for many opportunities in which you can achieve both success and happiness throughout your life. I have derived much pleasure from my association with you. Dean of Women. Christina Hardy, To the Seniors: And now your graduation day is herel Soon you will take leave of the halls and colonnades of Elon, seeking greater worlds to conquer. With sadness I " bid you fond adieu, " for we were freshmen together, you as students and I as dean. Four glorious years, four tumultuous years, four years filled with activity, growth and achievement; and now — your graduation. I feel a deep sense of kinship with the Class of " 48, and wish for you, individually and collectively, the best that the world may offer. As the years go by, may you look back upon those you spent at Elon, and say of them that they were happy and rewarding years. And looking forward, giving your best to God and man, may your lives be long and pleasant on the earth. Sincere best wishes to each of you! D. J. BOWDEN.

Plybon, is responsible for all contacts between Elon College and all high schools and handles all applications for students applying for entrance to college. He has charge of all dormitory assignments for incoming students, also housing for married and single veterans, this including the sixty-six apartments. The Field Secretary is the liaison between the college and the Federal Government for such equipment, buildings and other facilities that are available to colleges and uni- versities through the Federal Agencies. He serves as purchasing agent for all building material that is to be purchased on the larger scale for the college. He is also in charge of all public relations. The Ahiiiini Oltue THE ALUMNI OFFICE was established at Elon College, with an executive secretary employed for full time work in March 1946. The purpose in establishing this office was to organize the alumni of Elon College into an active association, whose interest would be the promotion of Elon. To publish a monthly newspaper, that would carry news of the alumni and activities on the campus. Mr. James F. Darden, class of 1943, was se- lected to serve as the first full time executive secretary of the Elon College General Alumni Association. 17 ...STUDENT Wayne Taylor President oj Student Body Ralph Edwards Vice President Jeanne Meredith Secretary Bill Staford Treasurer • " «?.

During the " war years, " numerous faces disappeared from the ranks of Elon students and have slowly drifted back to form the Class of " 48. During the past two years, we have come to know each other, share our ideas, and acquire a feeling of unity. Now, we are leaving again but this time for a different and more profitable purpose. Yes, " Our Day, " the day that we have looked forward to so long has finally come. With a mingled feeling of regret and happiness, we will now step from the role of a college student into a world awaiting us and our contributions.

After extending heartiest greetings to our new Freshman Class, we turned to the years ' activities with a determined effort. Remembering our Fresh- man Year, thinking of our Sophomore Year, the Class of 1950 eagerly anticipates what lies ahead. 4».

This year we have learned much, or at least we hope that now our skin isn ' t quite so green. Anyway we all had fun buying radiator keys, looking for sky hooks, etc. After several trips to Senior Oak we feel that we have now been initiated and are ready to become a part of Elon. This year has been a new experience for us and we have enjoyed it. In the years to come we hope for more fun and happiness — with a little work on the side.

Just look at what all of that pecking away at typewriters and banging of heads together up on third floor of Library Building has produced. Yes, the 1948 edition of the Phipsicli is " fini " and it ' s yours — believe me. As you already know, the word Phipsicli was derived from the three erstwhile " Literary Societies " of the College. There were times when it meant just that much to the staff too. ... In other words — plain Greek. Now, we ' ll agree with you that instead of being called The Phipsicli this year, it could have just as well been called " Un- identified, " or " I ' ve Had It. " . . . From our side of the desk let us say, we ' ve enjoyed working with you, hope you all the luck in the world on your next publication ( you ' ll need the heck out of it), and here she is. . . . 72 The l ' hi|)si(li IF YOU ' LL LOOK below you can see who brought you this material, surrounded by these maroon bindings, and from all probability will know better next time.

Under the guidance of Professor Russell Dunlap, and through the cooperation of the Staff, the Maroon aJid Gold has completed successfully another year. 74 WHEN ALL OTHER lights are out on campus, you can always walk past the Maroon and Gold Headquarters and find theirs ' still eating up ye ole ' Power-house juice.

Elon welcoming fifty candidates on its practice field, prepared for a tough schedule which included seven conference foes, a member of the southern conference and two non - conference op- ponents. Losing only a few gridders through grad- uation and transfer, the 1947 team was definitely a more powerful aggregation than the previous year. Numerous newcomers brightened the outlook for the future, though most of the positions were filled by depend- able veterans from the ' 46 campaign. Per- haps the final record of four wins and six losses would have been different had not every varsity player been injured at one time or other during the season. COACHING STAFF Head Coach L. J. Perry Line Coach Garland Causey Backfield Coach " Jet " Pierce 118 The Secison THE OPENING TILT with the Davidson Wildcats temporarily delayed Elon ' s first taste of victory. The reserve strength of the Southern Conference team proved to be the deciding " factor in their 19-0 victory, but the Christians fought on even terms for the first, third and final periods. The fatal second period produced the total scoring of the game. Hank Desimone, Claude Manzi, Claude Gentry, Jim Murray and Jack Rus- sell were outstanding for the Christians in spite of the defeat. Elon ' s initial victory was registered the following week-end when the Christians subdued A.C.C., 14-6. Though the highlight of the game was a 92 yard run by Allsbrook for the opponents, many Elonites played their best game of the year. Center Paul Causey scored one touchdown when he scooped up the ball, following a blocked Atlantic punt, and crossed the goal line standing up. Jim Murray, Jim Huyett, Fred Claytor, and Bobby Harris also starred for the victors. It is interesting to note that the touchdown scored by A.C.C., was the first ever made by men from Wilson against Elon. In one of the hardest fought games of the year, the Mountaineers from Appalachian outscored the Christians 21-13. Though a defeat for the Elonites, the contest was by far the most exciting taking place on their home field. Vicious blocking and tackling, lengthy runs, excellent passing, all a fan would desire were featured in the skirmish. Fred Claytor ' s passes to Jim Huyett, Jack Russell and Claude Gentry set up the touch- downs for the Christians. Claude Manzi and John Zurlis were line stalwarts. Playing on an exceptionally muddy field in Greenville, the Christians repeated their performance of last year by edging E.C.T.C, 7-0. For the most part, the game was uninteresting and uneventful due to the weather conditions; the seemingly fath- omless amount of mud kept down the scoring to a minimum. Standout mudders were Hank DeSimone, Claude Gentry, and John Zurlis. The offensive featured Pete Marsh- burn, Huyett Braxton, and Lou Savini, who scored the lone touchdown of the game on a 32 yard off-tackle play. Avenging a 20-0 defeat of the ' 46 campaign, the Fighting Christians upset a highly regarded Newberry team 3-0. Most of the game was played in Newberry terri- tory, but continual goal line stands by the South Carolina opposition prevented the Ma- roon and Golders from scoring a touchdown. In the waning moments of the second quarter, Jim " Groza " Huyett kicked a 22-yard field goal producing the only score of the encounter. Long runs by Bobby Harris and Jim Murray and a 40-yard pass from Fred Claytor to Mike Kozakewich highlighted the ball game. The Christians piled up 391 yards to 119 for Newberry, and 16 first downs to the Little Gamecock ' s 6. THE SQUAD One of the nation ' s best small college teams, Catawba, trounced Elon 38-0 on the week-end of October 25. The game was played in Salisbury and from the beginning, there was no doubt as to the victor. The Indians played in the Tangerine Bowl later in the year, which indicates the strength of their team. Elon held Catawba to two touchdowns in the first half, but relinquished four markers in the third and fourth quarters. Claude Manzi, John Zurlis, Claude Gentry and Paul Causey led the Elon forward wall on defense and offense during the entire contest. C. K. Siler and Huyett Braxton, with their running and kicking, were the offensive leaders. An injury-riddled Christian team waged a beautiful brand of football for the Home- coming crowd, and upset a highly favored Erskine team by a 17-7 score. The game featured two 70-yard runs by Bobby Harris and a 62-yard quick kick by C. K. Siler. Jim Huyett also had a perfect day in the kicking department, adding two extra points and making good a 20 yard field goal. Lou Savini, Claude Manzi and Huyett Braxton likewise stood out in the impressive victory. The game ranks as the most deserved win of the year; the line play was flawless, and performance in the backfield left little to be desired. Two days of psychological warfare preceded the encounter between the High Point Panthers and the Christians. Though Elon was the victor in the " battle of the nerve, " they were on the short end of the score when the final whistle sounded in the main contest. Bobby Harris, after intercepting a panther aerial, set up the first score of the game with a 90-yard run. Fred Claytor then tossed to Bill Perry in the end zone, and Jim Huyett added the extra point. But the boys from H.P., making their primary gains with end runs, tallied twice in the final quarter to edge out the Perrymen. The losing of the High Point game temporarily took the fight out of the Christians, for the Lenoir Rhyne Bears subdued the Elonites 13-0 when they met at Hickory. The Bears play featured numerous long runs by Charles Harrell, which in the final analysis determined the outcome of the contest, but the Christians were spectacular in holding the Hickorymen for no gain on four tries from the eight yard line. Dave " Shoeball " McClenny, Fred Hoffman, and Claude Manzi starred in the defeat. Guilford, favored by three touchdowns in the Turkey Day classic, decisively de- feated the Christians 13-6 in the final tilt of the year. The Elonites tallied early in the first quarter, but could make no appreciable headway thereafter, the major portion of the game being played in the Christians territory. Fred Hoffman, Lou Savini, Jack Russell, Dave McClenny, and Jim Murray starred for the Maroon and Golders in the encounter.

Too often we are prone to heap glory on those of the backfield who score all the tallies. But if it were not for the tackling and consistent blocking by the linesmen, the scoring of these points would be impossible. Comparing with the best in the North State Conference, the Elon line, featuring All-Conference guard Claude Manzi, was a continual standout throughout the season. Virtually all of the gains by the opponents were made around the ends or through the air. Therefore, we feel that the Maroon and Gold linemen deserve special commendation for their continual outstanding defensive and offensive play. . . . 121 L. J. Perry Coach Basketljcill " THE HOOPSTERS " Garland Causey, taking over the coaching reins from " Hap " Perry in the early part of the season, produced a high-spirited, scrappy ball team. However, against conference foes, the Christians were able to win only eight of sixteen encounters, and completed their schedule with a record of ten wins and twelve losses. Nine of these ten victories were won on the Elon court. The starting five usually consisted of Captain Johnny Clayton, Don Kernodle, Leo Kampman, Lacy Ganes, and Lou Savini. Jack Andrews, Harvey Smith, Bill Hopkins, Ed Drew, and Chuck Lentz were continually called upon to substitute for the starting quint. In the North State Tournament, Elon, the 1946-47 champion, was eliminated in the first round by the Mountaineers of Appalachian, who went on to cop the championship. Kampman IV D wvm The " B " squad, coached by " Jet " Pierce, was composed of Len Fesmire, " Big " Peters, Bill Perry, H. J. Carr, Jr., C. K. Siler, Ernie Gaster, Lester Foster, and Johnny Weldon. They earned the respectable record of eleven wins as against five losses, and a few of the Bees will undoubtedly engage in varsity play next year. 1947-1948 BASKETBALL RECORD Won 10.

Led by the timely hitting of Walker. Clayton, Anderson and Savini, the squad was victorious in 10 of their 16 North State engagements, thereby securing second place in the final conference standings. Catawba, the continual stumbling block in the path of the Maroon and Golders, accounted for four of the Elonite ' s six conference losses. Hurlers Jack Andrews, Frank Roberts, Bill Anderson, and " Pep " Watkins pitched their fire- balls to catcher George Cross; Jim McSwain, Steve Walker, Johnny Clayton, and Ed Ellis com- posed the near-flawless infield, while " Roc " Sileo alternated with Leon Pope in aiding Lou Savini and Dick York to patrol the outer garden. The ' 48 squad will miss the services of George Cross who did not return to the campus, and the invaluable Johnny Clayton who has joined forces with the Burlington Bees. However, with the re- mainder of the varsity returning, and the signing of ex-major leaguer Jim Mallory as head coach, Elon looms as the likeliest champion of the ' 48 North State Conference. «?

The Panth- ers decisioned the Christians twice, as did the superior Greensboro semi-pro group; but the Elonites split with Oak Ridge Institute, and then registered double victories over Guilford and Lenoir Rhyne. Bill Winstead, letterman Al Burlingame, Bob Wooldridge, Lawrence Paige, Pedro Godwin, and Frank McCauley all scored victories during the season. In the North State Tournament, Winstead was defeated in the finals, Woolridge in the quarter-finals, and the doubles team of Paige-McCauley reached the semi- finals. Pedro Godwin, winning seven of nine matches, garnered more total vic- tories than any other netter. The 1948 team, returning intact with the exception of Burlingame, is ex- pected to prove a stronger, more formidable squad. A greater number of matches are scheduled and we feel certain that the Piercemen will bring to Elon the Con- ference Championship. 126 Iiiticinuircils MEN: The purpose of the intramural program is to provide an opportunity for all students to participate in athletics. Probably no other program on the Elon Campus more completely achieves its objective than does that of intramurals. Men may participate with their dormitory or social club teams in basketball, touch football, softball and volley ball. Individual awards are given to the winners of bowling, tennis, badminton, and ping pong tourna- ments. The governing body of the program, the Men ' s Intramural Council is composed of representatives from each dormitory and social club. It is their duty to complete and carry out the plans of the program, as well as to enforce the necessary rules and regulations. Much credit is theirs for its effectiveness, but the highest commendation should go to Coach " Jet " Pierce, who is the Director of Men ' s Intramurals at Elon. Through his untiring efforts, faultless judgment and leadership, the Elon intramural program is held in the highest esteem by both faculty and students. 127 Intramuials Far from being outdone, the women are likewise provided with an intramural program of keen interest and competition. Teams composed of dormitory and sorority members vie for honors in basketball, Softball, and volleyball, while individually, students may enter bowling, tennis, pingpong and archery tournaments. The outstanding events of the year for students participating in girl ' s athletics was the Basketball Play Day held at Lenoir Rhyne College. The Elon " basketballerettes " garnered a third place in this competitive affair. Those students making the trip were Aggie Vaughan, Ruth Baine, Evelyn or Women Moore. Lib Jernigan. Ann Sawyer. Jean Harris, Evelyn McNeil. Ethel Craven. Betty Jo Chilton, Hazel Britt, and Helen Spivey. Evelyn McNeil and Ruth Baine were selected to the tournament Honor Team. Aside from intramurals, fundamentals for beginners, lessons in tech- nique for advanced students, and methods in directing athletics for girls are taught throughout the year. Under the capable directorship of Miss Vanda K. Whicker, these programs, participated in by many and enjoyed by all, hold an essential and significant place in the campus activities.

And countries rich in natural resources can be poor and backiiard with- out the benefits of education. Yes, the United States is a leader in the field of education too— but for how long? Appalling con- ditions prevail today in many of our schools. Many of our most brilliant teachers are working against odds— crowded classrooms, shortages of equipment and textbooks, long hours. . . . Thousands have left the profession for other work. You, and every United Stales citizen, will suffer from this situation, because it cannot help affecting our national prosperity before long. WHAT TO DO? Today— make it your business to take these two steps: 1. Check up on educational conditions in your local schools; 2.
