DEDICATION More than a half century ago the fires of ambition and consecration liurned in the hearts of a comparatively small group of devout men and women. They had visions of the coming years when education would be the determining factor in the trends of our nation. The church so far was the agency of evangelism and the means of inspiration, Ijut little progress had been made in education. The question, then, was vhat part the church should play in higher education. How else could the prin- ciples of religious thinking be established than on the campus of a Christian college? Following the gleam and guided l.)y Pro idence, these Christian leaders arose in faith, and out of self-denial, toil, and sacrifice, founded and built Elon College. Dedicated to sound scholarship. Christian teaching, moral liN ' ing, honest dealing — all of which build strong, stalwart Christian character — our CioUege has labored through the )ears, bearing bright fruits in the field of C hristian higher education. We, the Class of 1954, catching a glimpse of their heroic labors, sharing in a measure the fruits of their righteous lives, and being reminded of the high principles upon which the College was founded, humbly and gladly dedicate our Annual to the courageous founders of Elon College, our College, and the high principles on which it stands. iiwftr; ' ;c ; ' ' j, ' :,. Contents Administration Student Body Publications Organizations Fraternities Sororities Foreword Elon or The Oak, in Hebrew, was the highly appropriate name ascribed to our college by its founding fathers when, over half a century ago, they conceived of and built this institution. Surveying what was to become, in large part at least, the area to be enclosed by the campus walls, the founders realized that the densely foliaged trees on the proposed site represented its distinguishing feature, and they determined early to leave most of them standing. How- ever, due to some oversight during the course of actual construction, the workmen began their labor Ijy indiscriminately cutting clown a number of the trees on the southwest side of the campus. Their destructive advance was halted, oddly enough, just before they hewed down a bush whose stem had been wantonly and grotesquely bent. . . . Thanks to some- one ' s foresight, we today have the stately Senior Oak. Thus, the trees on the campus have re- mained as the calm, stalwart sentinels of our college ' s history from its earliest days. The familiar oak symbolizes in every way our work here, for it stands as a model of art. a challenge to science, and philosophically and religiously speaking, as a live embodiment of man ' s upward striving for knowledge. Indeed, it has useful, symbolic application even down to the numerous life experiences. And finally, with a little imagination, it represents the theme of this book — whether you Hnd it traced in the branches of knowledge or an ordinary board fence ! OUR PRESIDENT To the Class of 1954: Fortune and pro -idcnce have favored you while hundreds and thousands from all parts of the world, about your age, ha e lost their lives on the battlefields of the world. Yet you ha e been spared and privileged to remain in College. Now you are approaching Cominencement when you will be graduated from college, inspired and better fitted for life and its responsibilities. You may do further studying in universities or launch out in business or professional life. Whatever you do, may your efforts meet with the successes you have achieved in college. As you have found friends and companionship on the campus, may you be as fortunate wherever your paths may lead. Alma Mater shall watch your steps with interest and eagerness and follow you with prayers and expectations. L. E. Smith, President y) Imparting to us the various branches of knowledge is our Adminiltration DEANS To the Class ofl954: One of the primary purposes for the founding of Elon College was to offer to women and men the opportunities of higher education under religious and moral influences; that remains as one of our primary objectives. It is our sincere hope and our fervent prayer that while you have been here at Elon you have sought diligently for knowledge and that you have found a full measure of it; that you have had religious experiences which have strengthened your faith; and that your growth intellectually, socially and spiritually has helped to prepare you for a life of service to your fellow man and to your God. May He guide, direct, and bless you all of your days. Sincerely, J. E. D. ' iiNIEI.EY, Acting Dean Dear Commencers: It is reasonable to suppose that you and Elon College have worked together successfully to prepare vou for the level of sersice to yoiu " fellow men that can be given by a college graduate. Vou are, ho ve er, going out into a world that is gloomy in outlook. I should, therefore, counsel you to recall frequenth ' these words of St. Paul: Finally, Brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Sincerely ours, Alice Marion Bl.ack, Dean of Women 10 KONSTANTI. . S AVIZOMS M.A., Ph.D., Associate Professor of History and Aiodern Languages.

Who ' s Who serves a four-fold purpose: it is a commendation to a student for his success in college, both scholastic and social; a recommendation to the business world; a standard measurement for students; and an incenti ' e for students to get the most out of their college careers. Our congratulations go out to the eight recipients of the honor — all of them Seniors — who won for themselves this extra bit of distinction. 28 M KKBRAWOCK LA ERXE BRADY PHIL MANN JUDY INGRAM WALTER OBI.RR ' WOODY STOFFEL ROGER PHELPS GARY SEARS 29 L ' -fl lo right: Joe Morris Tommy Andrews Louise McLeod Sherill Hall JUNIORS JOE MORRIS President Junior Class Officers LOUISE McLEOD Vice-President TOMMY ANDREWS Secretary SHERILL HALL Treasurer 30 o a Juniors SL Armfiei I), George W. — Box 629, Lcaksvillo, N.

This puljlication marks the forty-first year since the inception of the PhiPsiCli on the Elon campus. Its purpose is to provide, through picture and print, a permanent record of many of the activities at Elon during the year. Concomitantly, it also provides an opening for student i ilciu in the myriad tasks that the production of the book presents. Invariably, however, these same tasks prove to be challenging ones, for many problems must be overcome if the seemingly all-too- illusivc goal is ever to be reached. Upon the outcome — at last! — we do feel that in spite of everything, the e.xpcrience has been worth it all.

The members have been working hard to live up to the objectives of the club, which are to give off-campus students better representation in student governmental affairs, and to create a spirit of harmony between campus and off-campus. The day students are particularly proud (jf the lo ing cup they won for preparing the best float for the Home- coming parade this year, especially since this is the first year that the cup has been awarded. Being the largest organization on the campus, the Day Students have eight representalivcs in the Student Legislature, all of whom have been quite active in legislative activities. But all is not work with the commuters ! The Day Students have revived the custom of organization parties and have enjoyed several well-attended and highly successful get-togethers during the past year. Although this might be expected from Elon ' s largest contingent of students, the Day Students have contrilnited much to Elon ' s activities. 58 EDUCATION CLUB OFFICERS STINE BriDOES Kathleen Euliss President Vice-President C.

Their basic role is the furnishing of music for the weekday chapel programs and the Sunday morning services. In addition to this, the group gives their annual presentation of Handel ' s oratorio " The Messiah, " Ijeforc the student body as well as on tour throughout North Carolina and Virginia. Another high light of the choir functions is the spring tour, which takes in many southern states and goes far north into New England. The Singers travel every year, spreading musical goodwill throughout the East. This group is composed of music students, along with any others who appreciate good music and really cnjo singing it. Undoubtedly their outstanding contribution has been to win for the college a definite recognition of Elon ' s rank in the field of music. 60 J- ' ronl row, l,jt lo nglil: Bernard Jones, Dii,ih,i, Juc Morris, Dium Mujui, Shirley Cox, Merylc Mauldin, Judy Chaduick, Nanncttc Matchan, Ann Kearns, Ronnie Quails, Donald McDaniel.

L ' pon consideration ol the cir- cumstances surrounding the rejuxenation of this musical group at Elon, the Rand, under the able direction of Bernard Jones, made a highly commendable showing of itself this year. Our hats go off to the entire group, and we wish them all success possi ble for the coming year. We cannot forget the majorettes, however, for without them a college would certainly be lacking.

These " bull- sessions " — so styled by the sponsors — were based on questions of practical Christianity and were particularly well-received and well attended this year, as many students took the S.C.A. at its word to " speak out on questions of vital significance. " S.C;., . members will always cherish the meaningful hours spent in regular Sunday evening fellowship meetings with Mr. Bozarth at the Parish House, and the week-end retreats which S.C.A. ' ers have enjoyed so much through the years. Also, we should not neglect to mention that the student loan fund maintained by this organization has proved its worth once again throughout the year, and then the vesper services during the week will be remembered by many as perhaps the most vital contribution of this organization. MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATION Thomas Madren President Reuben Askew Vice-President Patsy Tate Secretary Hazel Sherman Treasurer The Elon C()llea;i ' Minislc-rial Association, wiiich is composed of students who are going into lull-time Christian service as a life ' s calling, is an organization whose basic purpose is to pnnide training anti sujiply experience that will he of use for its menil)ers " future work, and also to be of benelit to the college and sur- rounding community. facts that will lie of im[)ortance to each meuiher in the future are among the objectives of this group. In this ijroup, which meets weekK ' and has two de- N ' otional meetings during school hours for fellowship with the day students, are several members who hold pastorates in the surrounding area.

The reason for this popularity is Le Cercle Francois, which meets there twice monthly. The main purpose of the club is to create a French atmosphere which is both entertaining and educational. The high lights at a regular meeting are usually movies, games, songs, and refreshments.

It was down at the University that he was a guard on the football teams of the Justice era. His first year here was a little disappointing for him, but we feel that within a few years he ' ll have the Fighting Christians right up on top. COACH MATHIS " Doc " is a veteran in North State coaching circles, who has produced many fine athletic teams. Facing the basket- ball season with one returning letterman, " Doc " and his team pulled the upset of the North State Tournament by downing a favored Western Carolina team in the first round. It ' s things such as that that have put him close to hearts of Elon Students. DH.I.OX CO-CAPTAINS PLATT 84 COACH SCOTT BOYD We here at Elon feel ery fortunate in securing the services of Prof. Boyd as head of our Physical Education De- partment. As head of the department, he has guided and directed the phxsical education program and intramural athletics. The 1953 edition of the Fighting Christians faced the opening of the season with that " •new " look. Indeed it was new, for at the helm was Sid X ' arney, who replaced Jim Mailory as the guiding light of footisall destinies here at Elon. Sunny Jim had departed to be come as- sistant coach down at East Carolina, and we brought in " The Toy Bulldog " of the Justice era down at Carolina. Coach ' arney came to Elon from Presby- terian and faced the task of reJDuilding the squad, as he was left with only four seniors and five juniors. W ' ith the return to the one-platoon system soine of our lettermen were replaced by the Frosh. The seniors, John Piatt, Dwight Dillon, and Mar in Moss distin- guished themselves in their final year for the Maroon and Gold gridders. The PhiPsiCli joins with the entire student body in paying tribute to Co-Capt. John Piatt, who was selected to the All-Conference team and who later was drafted bv the San Francisco 49 " ers. ELON WOFFORD 33 Taking full advantage of miscues by a youthful Elon football squad, the powerful VVofford Terriers pounded out a 33 to victory over the Christians in Spartanburg, S. C, in a muddy battle in a steady downpour of rain. Despite the top-heavy score and the Wofford rushing total of 229 yards, the Elon line played fine defensive ball most of the game. ELON 19 APPALACHLAN 21 The running of Shirley Gabriel and Don Hiatt, ctcran Appalachian backfield stars, pro -ed too much for Elon ' s Christians, and the two enemy aces led the Mountaineers down from the hills of Boone to defeat a fighting but unfinished Elon grid squad 21 to 19 in a hair-raising battle in Burlington Memorial Stadium on Saturdav night, October 3. Despite the defeat at the hands of the Mountaineers, the Elon ele en showed a tremendous improvement over its previous week ' s game. ELON 25 EAST CAROLLNA 45 Two high-geared offensive machines fought it out as the East Carolina Pirates defeated the Elon Christians 45 to 25 in a North State Conference gridiron battle in Green ille on Saturdax ' night, October 10. The game clima.xed East Carolina ' s ■ " Homecoming " fes- tivities and furnished thrills galore for eight thousand fans. Revell Morrison and John Piatt were the out- outstanding runners for the Christians, while Piatt and Bill Snyder shared the passing honors for Elon, but the entire squad showed improvement and played an unusually hard game.

A see-saw battle was waged for the three remaining periods with Carter scoring in the final period, followed by Stratton ' s placement that knotted the score for Catawba. Joe Smith, Gene Williams and Mel Bennett were outstanding in the line play. ELON 13 WESTERN CAROLINA 7 When Jerry Akromas, one of Elon ' s alternating quarterbacks, sneaked over from the one-yard line late in the second quarter and provided the Fighting Chris- tians with their second touchdown against Western Carolina, he also provided the ultimate winning margin, as the Elon eleven won its first victory of the season over the hapless and winless Catamounts. At the end of the second period, howe er, Garrison scored for the Catamounts. The game was played before 1,500 Home- coming Day fans at Burlington Memorial Stadium and was billed as a battle of non-winners. The last half proved to be a defensive show, with the rival lines rising to meet the occasion whenever the enemy threat- ened. Outstanding on offense for the Christians were Revell Morrison, Bill Snyder and Whitney Bradham, while Homer Hobgood, Glenn Varney and Joe Smith were defensive stars for the night.

The Christians drove the sixty yards for the TD, with Revell Morrison and John Piatt leadinc; the way. Jerry Akromas capped the dri e when he sneaked over from the one. Marvin Moss and Whitne - Bradham were defensive standouts for the Clhristians. ELON 13 l,i:. ()lR-RinNE 27 A crew of fleet-footed Elon hacks got the yardage, but an alert and hard charging Lenoir-Rhyne eleven grabbed opportune breaks to get the points, and the Mountain Bears defeated the Fighting Christians 27 to 13 in their annual North State Conference grid battle in Hickory on Saturday night, November 14. Never- theless, no less than nine Elon backs shared in the ball- toting, as Coach " Sid " ' arney ' s outfit rolled with (■N|)losive strength lor a net total of 343 yards ru.shing, compared with the Bears ' net of 145 yards rushing. I ' latt, Snyder, Morrison, Male, Michaux and Richards were the outstanding Christians for the night. ELON GL ILFORD ' ) The Guilford Quakers copped all the dressing to go with their Thanksgiving turkey when they made the most of a pair of breaks to defeat the Christians 9 to on their annual Thanksgiving Day gridiron meeting on Thursday afternoon, November 26. The game was almost entirely a defensive one, as neither team could show much offensive power all afternoon. Wayne Martin, freshman end, turned in several sparkling bits of defensive play for Elon, and Joe Smith did a fine job at guard for the Christi ans.

The Fighting Christian basketball five can rightfully be acclaimed as a good team, a very good one. This team has done very well for itself, when you take into consideration the fact that it lacks the height so much desired for basketball. Also it must be realized that only one of the first six players of last year ' s squad returned this year. Nevertheless, a young, green quintet took the floor against one of the better teams of North Carolina University, and they played a surprisingly good game, giving warning of great things to come. Dave Maddox, lanky center, has played sparkling ball for Coach " Doc " Mathis all year. Dave also has been the outstanding rebound artist of the club. Another outstanding performer has been Jack Mitchell, who, though short in height, lacks nothing in fight and hustle. The guard situation on the club was ably taken care of in the persons of Don Packard and Bob Timmons. These high-scoring guards are second and third in the scoring column. Elon is building for the future. In the next few years we, the students, expect to see great things from this voung team. SCHEDULE ELON OPPONENTS 78 BELMONT .

Under the very capable coaching job done by Jim Mallory, the squad had a very impressive win-loss record. Even though Lenoir- Rhyne ran off with the title in the Championship play- offs of the North State Conference — a repeat per- formance of the previous year ' s win — the Elon squad piu in some cry commendable playing. The leading pitchers were Shcrill Hall, Charlie Swicegood, and Luther Conger, followed by Arthur Mackie, Larry Summers, Ronnie Mclnt re, Gene Curtis, and Richard Smith. Regulars of the squad included such outstanding players as Bobby Jones, catcher; Carlton Langston, first; Jimmy Dalton, second; Nick Thompson, short; Bobby Stewart, third; Jack Musten, left field; Don Packard, center field; Carroll Reid, right field; with Alton Myers, Bobby Green, E.

Winning fourteen, thc - lost only two games — to the powerful University of North Carolina freshman team. Under the guidance of ' ' Red " ' McDanicl, future basketball greats got a thorough training in the funda- mentals of the game. The Elon youngsters, averaging 78.1 points per game, held their opponents to an amazing 58.5 points per game. The members of the team, pictured aboNC, are the very ones who made the J.V. ' s such a hard team to beat. Many of these players will move up to the varsity learn next year, and it should bolster the Fighting C ' hristian basketball troupe. It is a warning to the other teams of the Conference that Elon will be a hard- to-beat assailant in the next open sca.son for basketball.

This spring fete was again produced under the direction of the Physical Educa- tion Department and joint co-operation of the Music and Home Economics Departments; it was a colorful, musical, and happy pageant, climaxed by the coronation.
