As the future unrolls, a great many things about Elon, l)oth good and bad, will be forgotten by former students. This book, it is fervently hoped, will play a large part in preventing that from happen- ing. But even without this, the important things will be retained, l)oth in the minds and hearts of all the thousands of students who learned a way of life here that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. A development process has been begun here that will continue within us all. a growth of knowledge and understanding upon which fuller and happier lives is solidly l)ased. The many " litlle " things that add up to a picture of four years of college life are encompassed by this book, and with the hope that it will serve you well in keeping whole your memories of Elon and things learned at Elon, we dedi- cate to you this — the Phi Psi Cli of 1952. T. O Dr. I. W. Johnson We dedicate the 1952 Phi Psi Cli Rev. Isaac Walter Johnson, a native of Virginia and an honor graduate of Elon College; for the completion of graduate work was awarded the Master of Arts degree. Dr. Johnson was honored by his Alma Mater with the Doc- tor of Divinity degree. He has been active in the Alumni As- sociation, chosen as the annual speaker on two different oc- casions; is an ordained minister of the gospel in the Christian Church, now Congregational Christian. He is one of the out- standing rural pastors in Virginia and North Carolina. He is a strong gospel preacher, always placing the emphasis upon Bibli- cal teaching and the spiritual life of his church. During his active pastorate of 51 years, three struggling rural churches grew to be strong churches — strong in membership, equip- ment, and influence. He has served his denomination as an influential official in the Eastern Virginia Conference and in the Southern Convention. He was a member of the Board of Trustees of Elon College and of the Chris- tian Orphanage for more than 10 years. Dr. Johnson has made significant contributions to his church as a whole and to Elon College in particular. Dr. I. W. Johnson Recognizing his worth to his church and college, it is a pleasure and a privilege for the student body of 1952 to further honor him by dedicating our annual, the Phi Psi Cli of 1952, to him. ' . ' ; • fc=5£ inll m (.(,, So here ' s Elon . . . •) Our President To the Class of 1952: The days come and go; the years pass. Time on its march takes its toll as well as brings opportunities. The sun rises and floods the earth with light; it sets and covers the world with darkness. Your years in college iiave witnessed successive changes of light and darkness for mankind the world over. War clouds hang heavy over the nations of the earth. Indeed, arms are clashing today, and the ba ttlefield claims its toll. The future promises little relief. Nation is ar- rayed against nation with threats that may easily result in World War III. During these four years you have shared in the peace, the quiet, the safety, the se- curity of our college campus as well as the instruction, the inspiration, the stabilitv of an excellent faculty with wholesome influences. The time comes all too soon, it se.ems, when you ai ' e to launch out into a world of conflicts and a society of uncertainty and confusion. May you be guided by One Who never errs protected by One Who never fails, and strengthened ])y One Who never forsakes. Your responsiljilities are great, but your op- portunities are une(|ua]ed. Your Alma Mater shall follow you with interest and prayers. L. E. Smith, President. The Administration TO THE CLASS OF 1952: As you l)id farewell to ivy-covered colonnades and to many friends you ' ve made within tiiese walls, you look l)ack upon many happy days. You look forward, also, to years of achievement and fulfdlment, and mv best wishes go with you every one. riememl)er Elon with love and devotion, for you are forever a part of Elon and she a part of you. Sincerely yours, D. J. BowDEN. Dean of the College and Dean of Men. TO THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1952: Greetings and best wishes lo each one of you! As you travel along the years may you remember that probably the only good reason for your existence is not what you are going to get out of life, but what you are going to give to life.

With enthusiasm and determination we have met and overt ' ome many of the difficulties facing us. At times we have heen overconfident of our abilities; at other times we have had a grave sense of uncertainty. We still are not fully equipped, hut our foundation is firmer and our philosopliy a little more settled and coherent. We face the duties and oliligations whicli will he ours as seniors with a greater sense of responsibility. Renewed courage will help us seek the wisdom so es- sential to meet the tests of life. To the FIGHTING CHRISTIANS ' CLASS OF ' 52 we send our sincere Ijest wishes for success and happiness in life. Left to right: B. Blackstone, 0. HollanH, R. Durham. J.

Last year we were " green " ; this year we were branded " egoistical, " but after all we were sophomores. Elon now feels like home to us, and we are looking forward to the two years ahead knowing that they will be even happier. It seems like only yesteiday that we were welcoming the Class of ' 55 to our campus. We know now that the future will hold rain and sunshine: but we are confident that that which we have learned will bring us through our difficulties victoriously.

Ten students were chosen from Elon College to have their biographies appear in the annual publication Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges for tlie year 1951-1952. Tliis is the liighest honor at- tainable by students in college. This year eight seniors and two juniors were chosen. Elon College students accorded this honor are as follows: Bill Blackstone, Evelyn Booth, Emma Jean Clayton, Matt Currin, Jr., Reita Durham, George Etheridge, Roger Gibbs, Charlotte Rothgeb.

Mgr. 58 What is a cut? What is " to screen " ? When is the first deadline? What classes can I cut today? These were a few of the many questions confront- ing us as we began work on the Phi Psi Cli of 1952. As we dusted off the old typewriter and settled down to work, we realized we didn ' t have a theme. After several huddles with our very help- ful adviser. Prof. John Foster West, we decided that a most fitting theme would be " The Fightin ' Christians. " With the Fighting Christian spirit in mind, we began a long, hard task. Often Reita could be found canvassing the merchants of Burlington for ads. Many times could be seen a look of despair on Page ' s face, or Laverne pleading for a write-up, or Joe in the Print Shop bent over a typewriter pecking out a sports story, or the flash of Bill ' s Speed Graphic. Was it worth it — all this worry, bother, work? We think so and we hope you do. This is your book; you made it and we hope you ' ll be as proud of it as we are.

Mission completed! As another Elon year draws to a close, we can now close the cover on Volume 32 of the Maroon and Gold. The old linotype has fumed and spat smoke, hut the type has still rolled out. The old press has rumhled and groaned at times, but it has still met its deadlines on the dot. 60 And now, as the press stops rolling and the last issne is stacked and resting in the Rotunda for its student readers, another tired and happy staff is able to write " 30 " — which is Journalese for ' " Finis " — to its year ' s work. It ' s not all work to turn out a newspaper, for we have certainly had fun. Each fortnight we have rushed into the office all covered with smiles and oozing ambition to make each issue a little better than tlie one before, and then after several days we have finished and left with the inevitajjle fatigue that has come from scruitbing off ink and dragging sixty jjounds of lead from tlie make-up table to the press and bai-k again. We wish that you, our readers, might have seen Cashion, struggling with those galley proofs, determined each time that no enors escape him; or Currin, scratching his head to find another item for " The Moving Finger " ; or Engles, wrestling with the locked page-forms or clawing inky paper from the press rollers. And then, too, there was Mr. Byrd, at the last minute punching that typewriter like Joe Louis in the tenth round, using that speedy hunt-and-peck system of his. It ' s all part of the memories that we of tlie Maroon and Cold staff ' carry with us as we leave the work and tlic fun to those who come after us. Now it ' s so long, and we ' ll be seeing you! 61 John Truitt Secy.-Treas. Student Government The Student Government now has office space! Throughout the years at Elon one of the prime necessities and desires of the Student Gov ' t, has been the need for an office in which to better carrv on these functions vital to our campus organiza- tion. We are proud and appreciative of our new office. It was granted to us and furnished for us by the Faculty Administration at the beginning of this school year and has served as a real in- spiration and incentive toward better and more meaningful Student Gov ' t, activities. The Honor Council is composed of six members elected by the student body. This is the most im- portant council since it has jurisdiction in all cases of violations of the Honor Code and the Campus Code. HONOR COUNCIL George Etheridge Chairman E. Gero R. Durham B. Kendall E. Booth W. O ' Berky The Student Council serves as a judiciary body and a court of appeals. It is composed of five students, elected by the Student Body. STUDENT COUNCIL Bill Blackstone Chairman S. Addison C. RoTHGEB D. Lee J. Summers V v%t Women ' s Interdormitory Council The Women ' s Inteidorniitoiy Council, composed of eight mem- bers chosen by popular vote, is tlie branch of Student Govern- ment which serves as a governing body for the girls. It has the power to make rules affecting conduct of women in the dormi- tory and also it serves as a court to try violators of dormitory rules. Besides its immediate pur- pose, it provides training for future leadership. Men ' s Interdormitory Council It is the purpose of the Men ' s Interdormitory Council, which is composed of representatives from each men ' s dormitory, to help provide good living conditions for men on the campus. In order to achieve its purpose the council makes and enforces rules govern- ine life in the dormitories. Student Legislature The Student Legislature is the lawmaking organ and the su- preme legislative power of the Student Government of Elon Col- lege. It is composed of repre- sentatives from each dormitory, each class, and the day students, thus giving the student body complete and ecpial representa- tion. The legislature convenes biweekly, and it is presided over by the Speaker who is also the Vice-Pres. of the Student Body. ]{epresentatives are elected in the s|)ring of each year following the jieneral elections. Evelyn Booth i J Phil Mann Ernestine Bridges The Student OFFICERS Evelyn Booth President Phil Mann Vice-President Ernestine Bridges Secretary Roger Phelps Treasurer Rev. H. P. Bozarth Adviser The Student Christian Assn. is organized on our campus as a fellowship of students and faculty members who are seeking to unite the student ])ody of our college in a program of Christian Service. Our group is affiliated with the National Council of Student Christian Associations and is set up under three conmiissions. The co-chairmen of these commissions in the Elon S.C.A. are Laverne Brady and Sanmiy Nelson — Religious Faith and Heritage; Virginia Jernigan and Max Vestal — Social Rela- tions and World Order; and Pat Gates and John Truitt — Campus Affairs and Personal Relations. Charles Joyner Publicity Chairman This year the S.C.A. promoted Religious Em- phasis Week held in October. Five outstanding ministers participated in the services during the week. The highlight of the week was the address 64 by Billy Graham, the well-known evangelist, to the student hotly in a Chapel Program. The S.C.A. has worked hard this year. Evidence of that is the new S.C.A. room in Alamance Build- ing. This is proving quite an asset to the Assn. The weekend retreats and especially the buffet suppers at the Parish House sponsored by the Student Christian Assn. will long be remembered Ijy manv students as well as S. C. A. members. liristian Association " 1 • Ministerial Association Max Vestal President David Crowle Vice-President OFFICERS Betty Sharpe Secretary John Truitt Treasurer The Elou College Student Ministerial Assn., composed of students planning a life ' s work in any full-time religious occupation, is an organi- zation whose purpose is to supply usable experi- ence for its meml)ers ' future work and to lienefit the college and surrounding community. The M.A. Banquet affords members, guests, and the faculty of the Religion Department an outstanding social event each year. A retreat to the Betty Hasting Camp, near Winston-Salem, was a highlight of this year ' s social activities. Dr. Reynolds is still suffering from a sore nose, which resulted from his energetic volley ball playing. 66 The Choir The Elon Choir regularly furnishes music for the week-day Chapel and Sunday Services in W hitli ' v Auditorium. At the 1951 Connnencement they gave a dramatized version of " Elijah " by Handel. Lnder the directorship of John Westmoreland with Fletcher Moore at the organ the Singeis have become well known for their rendition ol I landers " Messiah. " For nineteen years this oratorio lias been presented at the college using guest soloists and in more recent years has been presented in Virginia with student soloists. At the November meeting of the N. C. College Conference the Singers sang Handel ' s " Israel in Egypt. " A short time later upon invitation of the Norfolk, Va., Kiwanis ( " lub the group performed at their Ladies ' Night Banquet. The northern tour, made each spring, usually includes New York, Boston. Washington, and smaller cities. Mendieiship is open to anyone in the student boilv who enjoys choral nuisic. 67 Household Arts Club OFFICERS Marjorie Stuckey President Jo DiLLARD Vice-President Theresa McSwain Sec y.-Treas. The Household Arts Chib offers to student members additional opportunities for the develop- ment of leadership, for acquiring a broader view of home economics, for co-ordinating the activities of the department, for rendering service to the college and supporting the State and Federal Home Ec-Assns. Clul) projects include a departiuent exhil)it for High School Day, a retreat picnic, a luncheon for Elon College trustees, an exhibit of Christmas decorations, aisles of taljles, a fash- ion show, and field trips. 68 Beta Chi Epsilon OFFICERS Sylvia McAdams President Ann Shoffner Vice-President Betsy Patterson Secretary Betty Stafford Treasurer Betty Jo Shepherd Sanieanl-al-Arms Beta Clii Epsilon functions for the benefit of secretarial students taking one or two-year secre- tarial courses. The purpose of the cIuIj is two- fold. First, it assists in creating a business-like atmosphere in the classroom by sponsoring demon- strations of up-to-date office equipment and by making contacts with outside business organiza- tions for the privilege of inspection trips and lectures from members of these organizations. Second, the club provides means for social con- tacts among the students within the department. The club meets once each week and one of the meetings during the month is in the form of a dinner meeting where outstanding speakers and entertainers are secured for the enjoyment and enlightenment of the group. 69 Day Students Matt Currin, Jr. Fresideni OFFICERS Mary E. King Secy.-Treas. Reita Durham Vice-President The Elon College Day Students ' Organization has grown in minibers and accomplishments with each passing year. This organization is the largest on the campus, including all the non-resident col- lege students. Participation in college activities by the day students has increased by leaps and bounds until at the present the Day Students ' Organization has representatives in such activi- ties as intramural sports, Student Government and other social affairs. This year the three student gov ' t, officials, President, Vice-Pres., and the Sec ' y.-Treas. of the Student Government, are all three members of the Day Students ' Organiza- tion. 70 Elon Players OFFICERS Ed Engi.es President Bob Walkkr Vice-President BiLLiE Greene Secretary Joe Brankley Treasurer Mrs. E. R. Smith Sponsor The Elon Players seemingly get nothing but work and headaches for all the trouble they take to put on a play. We get no money, no scholastic credit, and frequently very little audience appreciation. But we do get a terrific kick that comes with knowing we are doing a good play; it ' s some- thing that you people who never worked with the Players have to feel to appreciate. And if we should produce a turkey, which, incidentally is something that happens rarely, well . . . even that is good for laughs later on. None of us are actoi " s, as you would see if you ever attended any of our early rehearsals. Consequently we lay the blame for our many successful productions squarely on the shoulders of our capable and completely charm- ing director, Mrs. Elizabeth Smith. We wish you many happy years of enjoyable playgoing . the plays; it ' s up to you to furnish the necessary audience. we ' ve got Le Cercle Francais OFFICERS Reita Durham President Celia Oakley V ice-President Frances Daniely Secretary French, fun and friendliness cliar- acterize the hi-monthly meetings of tliis group.

Sloan and interested Spanish stu- dents who want to understand tlie cnstoms and traditions of the South American countries. The socials consist of movies from the Spanish countries and singing of Spanish songs, which will enable the members of the clul) to have a better undeistandin ' r of our I atin-American friends. 72 Education Club Jane Boone President Jean Hamilton Secretary OFFICERS Marjorie Stuckey Vice-President Mary E. King Treasurer Known also as the Fiituie Teacliers of America, the Education Club is affiliated with the National Education Association and the N. C. Education Association.

" Doc " Mathis Line Coach The Fighting Christians opened the 1951 season with the Emory and Henry Wasps at Bristol, Va., on Sept. 15. In a determined effort to avenge the defeat of last year, the Christians fought hard and fiercely, but it was not enough, as the Wasps won 20-14. All the scoring was packed into an exciting first half, as Bob Miller, Little All- America, led the Wasp attack. He scored one marker, while teammates Hankins and Bruce abetted the Wasp cause. John Piatt, big, fast tailback for the Christians, tallied for Elon on a beautiful eleven yard run. Carroll Reid. star Elon safety, took an inter- cepted pass and went 93 yards for a score on the longest run of the night. Sal Gero kicked all the extra points. " The Fighting Christian Bob Lewis, Sal Gero, Fred Burmeister, Tom Haymore, and Harry Farmer shone on the Christian defense. The Christians came back home on Sept. 20 to enter- tain the Norfolk Navy service team. And entertain, they did, as they racked up a 33-7 win. Lou Roshelli got the scoring started with a seven yard sprint into pay- dirt, and Carroll Reid followed shortly with a 16 yard scoring jaunt. The Navy Fliers scored next on a pass from Red McKesson to Dick Hoel. Godzak made good the point-after. John Piatt scored again for Elon in the third period on a thirty-yard run.

Gero made good four of ihe point-after tries to aid in the scoring. Mostly on the sure-fire passing of Lou Roshelli. the Christians edged the Catawba Indians in a North State Conference thriller at Salisbury on Oct. 20 by a 21-14 count. The lead changed hands three times, as both teams fought hard for the lead in the conference. Elon drew first blood as Lou Roshelli passed to Bill Black- stone on fourth down late in the second quarter for a score. The Indians came back strong and rolled for two quick markers in the third quarter. However, the Christians were not to be counted out in the final stanza, as Lou Roshelli passed to Jack Christy for a score. The final touchdown was another pass reception by Christy from Roshelli, and Gero made good all the extra points from placement. Charlie Atkins, Sal Gero, Harry Farmer. Len Greenwood, and Fred Burmeister were the defensive standouts. The Christians kept on rolling in Con- ference play as they downed the Western Carolina Catamounts at Reidsville on Oct. 27. by a 23-0 count. Lou Roshelli and Fred Biangardi stepped into the starring roles, as Lou ran thirty-five yards for one score, and thirteen for another. He set the last score with Bill Blackstone on the receiving end of a 31-yard pass. Biangardi carried over from that ])oint. The final two points for the Christians came on a safety, as Paul Ferguson and Bob Reece swarmed all over Singleton in the end zone. Gero kicked two extra ])oints in the scoring parade, and the defensive chores were taken over by Charlie Atkins. Gero, Reece, and Dick Lee. The Elon eleven turned " Mudders " to defeat the Newberry Indians on a rain- soaked field on Nov. 1 by the narrow margin of 13-12.

With the North State Conference Cham- pionship hanging in the balance, the Christians went up to Hickory on Nov. 10 to do hattle with the Lenoir Rhyne Bears. In almost a repeat performance of last year ' s game the Bears rolled up an early lead, and the Christians went down in defeat for the first time in conference play 4 )-14. Trudnak.

Bruises and spills are plentiful, but the gals seem to revel in the rough stuff. With a cry of " Tally Ho! " and " Yoicks " the female contingent of the Fighting Christian ecjues- triennes sally forth on a jaunt around the surround- ing countryside on their gallant steeds. Nearby bridle paths echo the sound of horse ' s hoofs as the young ladies partake of one of the favorite forms of recreation at Elon. Incidentally, liniment sales are on the increase. Girls ' Sports 11 ■■ In inclement weather, the girls go indoors to tlie volleyball courts of the gym. An intramural league is formed, and competition is keen to see who will be on the top rung of the league ladder. Shades of Robin Hood! But we bet the old boy never had a pretty bunch of lasses in his band such as the ones pictured liere, who are sharp- ening their eyes with the bow and arrow. Wonder if the girls figure on helping Cupid with liis aim? It could be the cause of the popularity in the archery classes, or maybe the girls are practicing for the title, " Miss William Tell.

Such acti i- ties as field hockev. archery, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and jjing-pong are offered, and tourna- ments are played during the regu- lar seasons. The W.A.A. operate on a point system — points art- given each woman who participat( ' and those with the highest number of points are given awards. Tin- points accumulate from year to vear, and a woman at the end of her four years with a certain num- ber of points wins a letter or jacket. It is the aim of the W.A.A. to provide a well-rounded program adding enjoyment to the life of each Elon woman. The function ol the Mens Intra- mural Council is to make the rules and regulations governing intra- nmral sports. The Council has charge of tag football, yoUeybali. basketball, Softball, tennis, bad- minton, golf, and ])ing-pong. The Council determines the type of schedule of the games, rules on protested games, and eligibility of phivers. and in general keeps the intramural prograjii running sni(jolhl . The awarding of troj)h- ies to the winning organizations or dormitories at the end of the year make the rc)ni])etilion keen. Men ' s Intraiiiiiral Council 103 ALL-CAMPUS STARS Highlight of the intramural football season is the selection of the Campus All-Stars. These are the boys who played their position best and are selected from all the competing teams. INTR VOLLEYBALL " Set it up " is the Ijattle cry when the volleyball league gets underway, and tlie yell never dies until the (•hampionshi|) team eliminates the last contender.

They added to their laurels by defeating the All- Stars in the season finale, 25-12. HUK LS BASKETBALL Tliough not in the class with the Fighting Chris- tian regulars, the intranuiral i)asketl)allers possess just as much s|)irit and zest to win. and anything might happen when loop play begins. SOFTBALL Future big-leaguers are possibly in the making when the intramural softball teams take the field. Scores may tend to run a bit liigh. but so does the enjoyment of clean competition.
