THE £j 9 A K A il The Tresidenp-- A Christian college like the College ot Kmpori.i occupies a unique place in the program of popular education. It is a small college, but its influence is out of all proportion to its size. Through the intimacy of its quiet life, it is building a distinctive type of character. It has made a conspicuous contribution to the world ' s best lead- ership. It is also a college of liberal arts. It strives for culture. It stands for an appreciation of the higher values and a devotion to the finer things of life. Its faculty is imbued with this spirit and its campus breathes this atmosphere. It is a Christian college. The Bible is in its curriculum and the princi- ples of our holy religion are at the center of its thought. In a day when religious instruction has been banished from our national system of secular education the Christian college presents " the last court of appeal in our edu- cational system for a free and untrammcled discussion of the things of the spirit. " We welcome into our liberal and friendly atmosphere young men and women who want to make the most of themselves in the development of the finer qualities of personality and to fit themselves for rendering the largest service to the world. V? 9 iT H E A A K A H yt uui (-e- -uu-u . T)ean of the Qollege The method of scientific investigation and conclusions as the basis of administration, beginning in the elementary schools, has gradually crept up (or down) to the college level. As a result, in the last ten years, traditional methods of instruction and administration have been examined and found wanting. Since the elective system was introduced by the late ex-president Eliot of Harvard no great or radical changes in the college have taken place. We are now, however, on the verge of a revolution. The discussion method is replacing the lecture method, the improved content, cut and dried, selected by a teacher is being replaced by cooperative research bv student and teacher, and responsibility for " learning " is placed upon the student, not the teacher. The ventures of Rollins, Swarthmorc, Antioch, Reed, the Experimental College at the University of Wisconsin, the Oxford housing plans, tutoral consultations, honors courses, comprehensive examinations are evidences of these deep movings of the spirit of higher education. Not all these ventures will succeed and survive, all are subject to change in the future, stable equilibrium will not be reached for some years, many failures will occur, but out of it all will come a better college education adapted to a new world.

DEAN The School of Music, with Daniel A. Hirschler as Dean, has held an important place in the life of the College since 1914, when it was established, and has become recognized for its excellent standards not only throughout Kansas, but beyond the state as well. This School of Music was the first in Kansas to offer the major in music in con- nection with the A. B. degree, as well as one of the first to offer the Bachelor of Music degree. This year it will, again, be the first in granting the Bachelor of Music Education degree, a four-year course preparing students as supervisors of music in high schools. There are many organizations and activities included in the music school. Among them is the Vesper Chorus, an a cappella choir of one hundred selected voices, which .s directed by Dean Hirschler and has become nationally known as one of the outstanding a cappella choruses of the country. Other organizations are the Men ' s Glee Club and the Women ' s Glee Club, each of which have an annual tour and home concert, the College Orchestra, the College Band, a male quartet, a women ' s quartet, and a brass quartet, all of which help in making the school of music well known in Kansas. In April, all efforts combine in the presentation of the annual Music Festival, a week of music, during which the Messiah is presented and many nationally and internationally known artists appear, usually including one of the prominent symphony orchestras. In these many ways the College stimulates interest in music among the students and the constituency of the institution. The regular instruction offered by the teachers in the department, the weekly recitals by the pupils of each teacher, and the public chapel recitals every two weeks help to build up interest in things musical. The growth and development of the School of Music is continuous and encourag- ing. Each year definite progress is made due to Dean Hirschler ' s competent leadership and the department is becoming more and more a vital part of C, of E. and of the com- munity. 9 tt H E il Top Ron — Vlar, Schlcesser, Ward, Milner Middle Rou — Bestvater, Nichols, Griswold Bottom Roil ' — Mitchell, Valenzuela, E.

T ie omens Qlee Qluh The Women ' s Glee Club has had an unusually successful and pleasant season. The annual tour was made in a specially chartered bus and the itinerary included Atchison, Hiawatha, Horton, Leavenworth, Olathe, Lawrence (where a short program was broad- cast over WREN), Topeka, and Kansas City, Kansas. The sincere welcome the women received showed the feeling of good will toward C. of E. which prev.iils throughout this region. The club made several appearances before Emporia audiences, the most important of which was the home concert given March 4. In this concert Dorothy Gartner, colo- ratura soprano (winner of the first place in the state contest sponsored by the Federa- tion of Women ' s Clubs), Josephine Smith, violinist, . nd Esther Bestvater, pianist, ap- peared as soloists. The women ' s quartet, composed of Dorothy Davis, Lois Rhodes, Lois Boulton and Blanche Yeomans, also took part. Their fine blending and musicianship were much appreciated. This year the club instituted a new custom, th.u of wc.iring evening gowns of uni- form style and color. The arrangement produced .i ery lovely effect. The women were directed by Miss Cora lulwards, whose leadership is responsible for the many outstanding successes of the club. One music critic .ifter hearing their eve- ning concert remarked, " The club sotnuK like .i mightv organ uiuler the per ' feel conlml of a master hand.

Under the leadership of Mr. Lloyd Bender, twenty-five of the thirty members toured the territory to the west and north of Em- poria. Between January 26 and February 4, the club gave concerts at Newton, Chase, Lyons, Ellsworth, Hays, Phillipsburg, Oberlin, Wakeeney, Minneapolis, and Belleville. The boys traveled in a luxurious transcontinental bus, chartered for their use. Owing to the ideal weather and to the high standard of performance, the club had one of the most successful trips of recent years. In addition to the numbers given by the glee club as a whole, the program included selections by quartet, double quartet, and brass quartet, and solos by Mr. Bender and by the accompanist, Joseph Burns. During the month of February, the glee club gave a sacred concert at the Presby- terian Church. In March, a performance was given before the State Conference of Methodist Ministers, and the club made its annual appearance at the Emporia High School. The Home Concert was given the evening of February 15. After the performance. President and Mrs. Kelly entertained with a reception for the men ' s and women ' s glee clubs. -t A THE L L A K A Davis. Rliidcs, B.ul:. n, Yc. Quartets The two qviartets proved to be one of C. of E. ' s most outstanding and popular features this year. The Women ' s Quartet this year has made a place for itself in the community as well as in the school. They sang several numbers on the annual tour and appeared on various programs in Emporia, including the A. A. U. W. tea and several school programs. The Men ' s Quartet maintained the popularity of former years, filling manv en- gagements in and around Emporia during the year and singing a group of songs on the glee club trip. Their negro spirituals were especially well-liked; and surely no one will forget the " pic-nic out in the park " they sang of. u Meislt. ; lion of Percy C today, " itveri!

Kathryn Meisle, a contralto of great ability and personal charm, having an international reputa- tion of no mean proportion, appeared as soloist in the " Messiah, " and also in concert. Percy Grainger, " undoubtedly the most unique personality before the musical public today, " appeared with the chorus in a program of choral and piano music, including several of Mr. Grainger ' s choral works, which he directed. The London String Quartet, " the finest that the American public has the privilege of hearing, " a superb ensemble, easily one of the world ' s greatest, appeared in concert. Here was chamber music at its finest. London String Quartet 9 3 A A K : t H e Vesper Qhorus For seventeen years the Vesper Chorus has been singing in festivals and vesper musical services so that today it is one of the seasoned organizations of this type in the United States. This year in the " a cappella " work of the choir singing by memory has been required so that the precision of attack and release, the delicacy of phrasing, the perfect balance and beauty of tone quality have been brought to a high degree of per- fection. Many musicians and critics of eminence now rank this selected chorus of one hundred voices as one of the foremost choirs of the country. Under the direction of Dean Hirschler this choir has sung at six vespers during the season, once before the State Teachers ' Association, also during the 17th annu.il Spring Music Festival they appeared in the " Messiah " with orchestra and soloists and in an " a cappella " program with Percy Grainger as guest pianist. The entire program of the festival was as follows: April 14 — " Messiah " with Vesper Chorus; College Orchestra, and Kathryn Meisle as contralto; Marjorie Jackson, soprano; Claude Ncibarger, tenor; Harold Boggess, bass. April H — Recital by Kathryn Meisle; Roy Underwood, accom- panist. April 16 — Concert by the London String Quartet. April 17 — Concert by the A Cappella Choir and IVrcy (Irainger, pianist. This celebrated chorus through its monthly musical vespers which have become a popular series of concerts throughout central Kansas, and through the annual festival, has been attracting thousands to the College of Emporia, and its reputation has added lustre to the name of the College all over the country. 9 The Q. of 8.

A squad of five men and seven women debated the national Pi Kappa Delta question: " Resolved, That the nations of the world should adopt a policy of free trade. " Out of a total of 59 debates, seven were non-decision, 19 were won, and 23 were lost. C. of E. debaters attended an inter-state tournament at Winfield, one at Ottawa, and the Pi Kappa Delta Provincial tournament at Pittsburg. In their rounds they have met teams representing Phillips University (Okia.), Tarkio (Mo.), Marysville (Mo.), Hastings (Neb.), Alva (Okla.), Colorado Teachers, Missouri Valley College (Marshall, Mo.), William Jewell (Mo.), Hays, Baker, K. S. T. C. Emporia, K. S. T. C. Pittsburg, Friends, Bethany, Wichita U., Coffeyville Jr. College, Washburn, Southwestern, McPherson, Kansas Wes- leyan, and Sterling. A women ' s team composed of Grace Onstad, Lucille Arnott and Lorraine McMullcn, met a K. S. A. C. team in a debate on the Hawley-Smoot tariff question which was broadcast over station KSAC. This debate was non-decision but has the distinction of being the first women ' s debate to be broadcast in the state. Our orators, David Bechtel and Ruth Marshall, with thtir oraiions, both carried " The .Soul of America, " entered the Pi Kappa Delta tournament at Pittsburg. Each won two preliminaries and entered the finals but did nat place. The season has been very interesting and challenging not only for the debaters but to all, if any, who heard the debates. Though not as fortunate as we had wished, the season has been very profitable for those who have had a part in the forensic activities. 3 ij A A f A aJ Top Ron— Pratt, Onstad, W.

The fraternity also sponsors intramural forensics, consisting of inter-class debates and the like. 9 A A K A iJ Miller. Moyer, X ' . Edwards, Swift, McClciv oMen ' s IDehate WILLIAM EDWARDS — Three years of college deb.iting make Edw.irds the most experienced man on the squad. His work has been characterized by quick logical rea- soning, ability to choose the essential issues, and clear presentation. He was teamed with McCleave in the Ottawa and Pittsburg tournaments, and has served the past year as president of the local chapter of Pi Kappa Delta. JOHN MOYER — During the past two years Moyer ' s debating has improved and become much more impressive. In addition to being logical, profound, and positive, he has acquired a very likely and persuasive elem ent. Moyer will add considerably to his fine record of achievement ne. t season. HAROLD McCLEAVE — McCleave has justified the high expectations held for ii. ' m as a freshman. An extensive knowledge of the subject coupled with ability in analysis and persuasion have enabled him to make his debates interesting for the audience and difficult for his opponents. He participated in more debates this season than did any other member of the entire squad. ROBERT MILLER — Unusually extensive general information and powers of rapid adaptation marked Miller ' s debating this year. He, as well as McCleave, attended the tournaments at Winfield, Ottawa, and Pittsburg. He reasons well, speaks easily and persuasively, enlivens the discussion with illustrations and withal makes a good exposi- tion of his arguments. DEAN SWIFT — The only freshman debater on the men ' s squad. Switt partici- pated in the Freshman-Sophomore encounter and worked on the regular debate question. His powers of reasoning, good stage presence, and deep voice predict considerable forensic success. " t A A K A H E. Edwjrds, Onstad, Brcwn, W ' oerner ' Women ' s T)ehate ELLEN EDWARDS — Following her usual fine style. Miss Edwards combined rapid talking and good choice of words with shrewd argument. She has debated for four years. GRACE ONSTAD — Miss Onstad wears a diamond — in her Pi Kap key for excel- lence in debate. That honor attests the fact that she is well versed in every branch of the art. FLOY WOERNER — Miss Woerner is a vigorous debater — vigorous in her thought, in her preparation and in her presentation; and this vigor and emphasis is the basis of her marked ability. VIRGENE BROWN — Miss Brown combines logical argument, rapid speaking, and a militant spirit into a pleasing and effective style. MARTHA KOONS — Miss Koons adds to comprehensive preparation and effective speaking an air of cynical amusement that crumples her opponent ' s arguments and em- phasizes her own. LUCILLE ARNOTT — The outstanding freshman debater of the year. Miss Arnott won first in the Freshman-Sophomore debate and showed up excellently in her regular debates. LORRAINE McMULLEN — Miss McMullen seemed always to suggest that she had all her material at the tip of her tongue — for she was outstanding in presentation.

Players entered upon their seventh year with eleven eld members. A new method of admitting candidates, that of pledging, was adopted last fall. At the trycuts eleven students were pledged, and from this group eight were elected to active membership. Two pledges were taken in the second semester trycuts, and these will he voted on next fall. The first major production of the Players was a three-act comedy of modern satire, " The Queen ' s Husband, " by Robert E. Sherwood, presented on October 28. Just before the Christmas holidays, the Players staged James M. Barrie ' s " Alice-S ' t-By-The-Fire, " with Miss Moyne Rice in the leading role. " The Perfect Alibi, " a modern three-act detective drama by A. A. Milne, was produced en March 20. This unusual play is the first of its type to be given at C. of E. Besides the above major productions, the Players presented several one-act plays before leading organizations of Emporia. Much practical experience in the acting and staging of drama has been gained through all these presentations. The able directorship of Miss Moyne Rice, club sponsor and director, has been an important factor in the high standard of production which the organization has maintained during the year. ■ ' THE PERFECT ALIBI " -f THE A L L A K A it 7o , R,. 11— Prat liT-on, H.1 rdon, Bavf ih.

Meetings are held every other W ' edncsdav evening, to read and criti- cize original work submitted by members. Contact with the national organization was made last summer by Ivan Pratt, who was delegate to the Witenagemot, or biennual conference of Quill, at Lawrence. An- other outstanding event of the year was the dinner held in honor of Mrs. Ethelyn Hart- wich. High Chronicler of Quill, who visited the campus on her tour of all the Runes, during March. Besides the above events, activities this year included an open meeting on April 22, to which all interested were invited, a picnic, and publication of the Scroll, the annual magazine containing original contributions by club members. The editor of the Scroll this spring is Ed Whittlesey, charter member of the Rune, wlio returned to finisli work on his degree. William Edwards is business manager. The club sent material to the national Quill magazine, the Parchment. Also, a poem by I llzabeth Nelson, ' 27 (now Mrs. W. R.

The senior members are entitled to four representatives on the council, one of which is president of the association, on; vice president, and two council members. The juniors are represented by two girls, on; acting as head proctor of Dunlap Hall.

The executive and judicial powers of the associa- tion are vested in the Council which co-operates with the dean of women. The Council has this year materially strengthened the association by a revision of the constitution and the granting of more liberal privileges. This was done with faith that such would not be abused and thus far this faith has been justified. The Council also has its part in the social activities on the campus. Musical pro- grams are given once a month following dinner on a Sunday, and informal all-school parties are sponsored by the Council. 9 3 THE A L I, A K A :jJ T„l, R„„- lioltom R -B.

M. C. A. serves a vital and useful function in the realm of student relations. Our association this year has striven to be worthy of this conviction. Each weekly program has offered something of benefit and interest to the mem- bers. Meetings are opened with short devotional periods followed by discussion and talks including open forums. Music and other entertainment complete the programs. This year members of the faculty gave a series of talks on " I iving Life, " and several outside men, including Mr. William Guerrant, Mr. Guy Cutchell, and Mr. George Irv- ing, visited the campus in the interest of the association, giving their time in chapel ad- dresses and private interviews. The cabinet meetings this year have been especially val- uable and well organized. Socially the association has made several ventures. The first night of school, in conjunction with the Y. W., the Y. M. held a " get-together " in the gym at which new students were guests. Later the Y. M. gave a Stag Party and since then several retreats and whing-dings have been held. The Y.

We help the new girls in school by providing " big sisters " and an organiza- tion especially for them. In our meetings there are splendid chances for a girl to show her leadership. If Y.

Any young woman student is eligible to nu-inbership, the only requirement being a determination to spend two hours each month in the regular meetings of the club study- ing Social Service problems and doing any practical work the club undertakes. The practical work done by the club during the past year has been: rolling bandages at the Newman Memorial County Hospital, visiting the shut-ins, sewing at the Welfare As- sociation, selling candy and sandwiches at the football games, " preparing baskets at Thanksgiving, contributing money to the Mexican Mission, and giving a Christmas party for the Mexican children of the city. The club also has a student lo.in fund from which young women may borrow money without interest for a short time. Under the guidance of their sponsor, Miss Laura Meier, the club strives to live ts motto, " Service for Others. " 9 3 A A f A H , McMurray, B.

Students from foreign countries, Americans who have lived in foreign countries, and Americans who are deeply interested in the manners, customs, and present conditions of the different nations comprise the membership of the club. Persia, Korea, India, China, and Cuba are represented by people from those lands or by people who have lived in them. Meetings are held twice a month. Special speakers, missionaries, and people who have traveled in various parts of the world have contributed much of interest and of value during the year. At other times, members of the club have presented entertaining programs. We have enjoyed social evenings in several Emporia homes, and there drew a little nearer to our goal, that of becoming real friends. Picnics, too, have had their place in the activities of the organization. An interesting phase of this year ' s work was that of corresponding with former members. We wish to express our appreciation to our sponsor. Miss Beulah Altnian, for the co-operation and enthusiasm which she has continually given.

Margaret Frances Patton Secretary-Treasurer Conrad Vandervei de In 1924 Dean LeRoy Allen of Southwestern College proposed and effected the or- ganization of Pi Gamma Mu, a society devoted to the cause of social advancement, striv- ing to popularize the ideals of social science and social service. As this society seemed to fill a need in the collegiate life of the country, it spread rapidly. At present there are nearly 200 chapters compased of over 12,000 members, all chosen for .ichievemeni from among the juniors, seniors, faculty, and alumn.r of colleges throughout the United States. The Kansas Delta chapter at this college was established in 1929. Unlike many honor societies we do not rest our case on achievements but rather in achieving, proceeding in the faith that social virtues can only come through the direction of society in accordance with the basic principles of human nature. In our meetings, held twice each month, we attempt to come closer to this ideal through the presentation and discussion of occurrences and viewpoints in this vast field of human relationships. Also through the organization ' s journal, " Social Science, " we arc brought into a gre.itcr realization of the importance of such endeavor. " Ye shall kinin the truth and the truth shall make ii{ free. " 3 A A f A il Top Row — Snider.

Kappa Omicron Phi is a national honorary scholastic fraternity of home economics. The Kappa Chapter was installed at the College of Emporia, January 2 5, 1928. It has been an outstanding honorary organization on the campus since, but owing to the small home economics department and the high standards upheld for membership, we have few members. October 30, 31, and November 1, 1930, three members attended the national con- clave held at Excelsior Springs, Mo. Those attending were: Misse? Raymond, Tressler, and Steckel. They learned many new and interesting things about organizations located from coast to coast. The organization has served several banquets and dinners with the aid of the local home economics club.

The club was brought into being early in 1931, with the assistance and able sponsorship of Professor Wells Smith, head of the Education Department at C. of E. Membership is limited to those upperclassmen who expect to enter the teaching profession; the roll by the end of the school year will include the names of approximately ninety students. Although fully organized at the beginning of the second semester, with officers and functioning committees, the Education Club made its formal debut on the evening of March 31, with a public banquet in collaboration with the Emporia Women ' s City Club. Governor Harry H. Woodring was guest of the Education Club, and delivered an address after the banquet, sharing the time with Rev. Burris Jenkins of Kansas City, who was speaker for the City Club. Special tables were reserved for members of the C. of E. organization. The purpose of the Education Club is to create a strong social and professional bond between students who expect to teach after graduation. Plans for the expansion and development of the organization are being made, and it is confidently expected that next year the Education Club will take its place as one of the strongest and most active societies on the campus. 9 J A H E A K A 10 I Tol «««— Julian, Stcckcl, Arnutt, Hayes, Gibson, Wliitla, Gunn, MCchcrs, Scott Miil.ll,- RoM ' — Taylor, Vandcrvcldc.

These things are discussed, debated and commented upon with enthus- iasm and ingenuity. An unusual feature of the club work is the parliamentary drill period included in every program. In this the older members become well-nigh faultless in catching errors in procedure. The members of the Forum are selected from the three upper classes by competitive manuscripts or speeches. The membership may not exceed twenty-four. An alumni organization of Forum gives it a background that is becoming more and more distin- guished. Annual open meeting, the idea and script for which comes from Forum men, is one of the important Forum events of the year. This spring it took the form of a planetary conference, attended by the Sages from every age and clime since Adam, met to forestall any difficulties that might arise from inter-planetary commerce. Several banquets and other more informal parties add interest to the club. 9 A A K t SS 9 Pagr 104 What ' s What ms t d Mr. Liti A.

( " Rosy " ) Harii C( „«7) The p.ist season has, according to most " seers " and " knowers " over the state, been rather discouraging for C. of E. However, C. of E. had a team far superior to the 1929 aggregation, and bids fair to beat her way back to the top after the inevitable let-down following the Selves-McCart- ney-Munday-Kopelk, etc., regime. The entire conference played a better brand of ball this season, and we were able to show the best of them a stiff fight. Begmning with a bunch of green men, Harr had a difficult task to get them mto trim. He was very seriously handicapped by the large number of injuries which began with the first scrimmage and ended so tragically on Thanksgiving day, keeping Barnes, Kukuk, and several others out for the entire season. The season, however, has uncovered some real all-conference material in the freshman ranks, and augurs well for the next few years of College football. Nine lettermen were lost this year through graduation and change of school. With a renewed interest and some real work, it is not at all unlikely that 193 1 will see the Clollegc well on the road to recover its heritage of football supremacy. tT H E Lester Selves, Assistant Couih Ab HlNsHAW, Assistant Coach The entire coaching staff is composed of C. of E. men, Harr having played under and assisted Henry and Grant. Harr has been assisted by Lester " Bud " Selves, perhaps the greatest back, both defensive and offensive, which the College has ever produced, and an all-state man for several seasons. Selves had charge of the backfleld men and ends. Ab Hinshaw also assisted Harr, and worked with the freshman squad. These boys played the Normal Reserves and the Wichita Freshman, with a remarkable showing of fight and determination. FiiiiiLuiictitah 9 A A Pv A iJ iir 9 3 A A E. K A C.

Playing in a regular berth this year, Bigham was able to display a good brand of ball. On the defense especially was Bigham a tough proposition, able to take as well as give, and always dependable. RICHARD BARNES Fredonia. Halfback, 2 letters, Weight 160. Unfortunately Barnes was unable to be in many games this year because of a broken ankle received in the Washburn game.

George was kept out of several games by an earlv season injury, but showed up well in the games he did play, especially the last two. He has one more year, which should be his biggest. CHARLES DAVIS Emporia. Quarterback, 3 letters. Weight 15 5. " Chuck " was the smallest man on the squad, but his ability as a field general was unsur- passed. This is Chuck ' s last year, and he will be greatly missed. RICHARD DiBOLT Altoona. Tackle, 3 letters, Weight 18 5.

Homer has been regular center on C. of E. ' s football teams for the past three years, and his ability is unquestioned. This was not his best year, as he was handicapped throughout the season by old injuries. He ranked with the best in the conference, however, and his great strength and accurate passing will be greatly missed next year. LEO KOONS Herington. Halhack, 1 letter. Weight 15 5. What " Bud " lacked in size, he more than made up for in speed, and he was a player who did his best every minute he was in a game.

Considering the fact that only one veteran, Homer Bigham, was a member of the squad, it is a remarkable record. From the standpoint of the spectators the season was very interesting, as every game played was hotly contested and many were tied up until the last few minutes of play. No one will be lost by graduation this year, as Bigham is a junior and the other lettermen are sophomores and freshmen. With such a flying start, these boys should be title contenders next season. At the Southwestern tournament, C. of E. carried off consolation honors. The final drubbing that the team so neatly settled on the Normal closed the schedule, and left such a good taste in our mouths that we can hardly wait ' till next season. The players showed their mettle, and we expect big things from them next winter.

A healthy body is one of the first pre- reqiii ' ites for a sound mind. The interest this year has come up to the expectations, with fully 17 men participating. During the basketball season a tournament was held. Each of the five teams entered carried eight men and played every other team three games. The tourna- ment was won by " Selves ' Prides, " with " Thomas Hall " second and the " Bearcats " third. The other entries were the " Cave Men " and the " What Nots. " The winners lost but one game. The tournament extended over about a month and one-half and called forth a good deal of interest. A tennis tournament was scheduled last tall but due to circumstances could not be played off. At present the spring tournament is being held and has at the time of writ- ing progressed into the second round, with Pratt, R. Wilson, W. Wilson, N. luson, I ' uU- ington, Corson, Carnahan, and Oilman still going strong. The excellent weather has made tennis very popular and the courts are usually filled. Early in April a boxing tournament was held which created an unusual amount of interest. The bouts were staged on the bare gym floor, and the boys were seemingly anxious to slug; consequently when one went down he usually stayed down. At any rate two knockouts were scored, whether due to the blow or the floor being a much mooted question. In the 11 J lb. class, Gilman defeated Vandervelde. In the 125 lb. class. Lamb won over Swenson. In the 145 lb. class, Haberly took a decision over Roberts, In the 155 lb. class. Crown knocked out ]. Moyer, and took a decision ,ner W. Moyer. In the 175 lb. class. Harden won a decision over Kent in .-[n excellent ■.•xiilbition of boxing. In the heavyweight class, Lohr won over Bales and knocked out Miller. There are several other contests to be held, including a swimming meet, a golf tournament, a horseshoe tournament, inter-class ball games, and an inter-class track meet. These events will interest many men and provide for them ample physical exercise and good fun. 9 3 A A K A H racJi Lester Selves, Coach Although it consists largely of uiidcrchissmcn, the 1931 squ.id has been the best balanced of any team for several years. The large number of candidates for the squad showed the exceptional interest taken in track this season. Strong and steady, though not phenomenal, the team has made a very creditable showing in all meets this spring. The distance men, Haberly, Church, George, and Barber, were usually good for several points. At the Hastings Relays, Kimble broke the meet record in the discus, and has been good for a sure first in every competition since, except in the K. U. Relays. Cipra is usually able to garner a few more sure points with the javelin. The Normal won the annual meet by a score of 71 to 60, a much closer score than has resulted for several years. The College took second in the Quadrangular (C. of E., Washburn, Baker, and Ottawa) held at Ottawa. The meet took place on a muddy field. The score was as follows: Washburn 54, C. of E. 43%, Baker 41 4, Ottawa 26. After such a beginning, and granted that average good fortune attends our .-fforts, the team has every reason to expect a very successful season. 9 r A Alfred Habcrly Blue R.ipids D s iiincs If " Habe " had only known tli.it he could run the mile .ind two-mile before last year!

Dinkle baseball C. of E. is the only Central Conference school where intercollegiate baseball is i r ■ thusiasticaily participated in and supported. Coach Harr has developed another fine team, which is to play one of the heaviest schedviles in several years. The failure of other C. I. A. C. schools to promote this sport make it necessary to go a little further afield in scheduling games. In the early games played thus far, the infield has shown up especially well; it has also received excellent support from the other departments. The opener with St. John ' s gave the College a 3-2 victory, while the St. Mary ' s boys " took " us 4-2. The rainy weather played havoc with part of the schedule, but the games were played at a later date. The high spot of the season was the southern trip into Oklahoma, the first week in May.

At the C. I. A. C. tournament, the OjUege won the single and third and fourth places in the doubles, admirably topping off an unde- feated season of six matches, with Baker, Wichita, Washburn, and St. Mary ' s. The team was composed of Newsom, Livingston, Hildebrand, Markley, and Tice, with Newsom playing in No. 1 position. Newsom came to us as state high school champion and has been the greatest player in the history of the school. He won the Leonard Cup four years and teamed with Studt to win the conference doubles in 1927. In 1930 Arden won the state open championship and also the C. L A. C. singles championship. With him passes much of our " power " in tennis and his loss will be difficult to replace. However, Prof. Miller is hard at it again this year, with Tice, Fullington, Carnahan, and W. Wilson as the chief aspirants. This year ' s team will be largely of green material, as Tice is the only remaining letterman.

The two matches with St. Mary ' s were both won. Wichita U. divided honors with us, winning at Wichita and losing at Emporia. One match with each of these schools was played in Emporia and away from Emporia. In the C. I. A. C. tournament held at Washburn, C. of E. took third place. David Morgan, former city champion of Emporia, won qualifying honors in the Emporia Invitation tournament last summer. He is attending K. U. this year. Paul Morgan, of Columbus, is the remaining member of the team.

' W. A. A. h.is carried out successfully a more complete program of ath letics for women than ever before in the history of the organization. The interest of the women in the association has increased. Major and minor sweaters were awarded this year to women having completed the necessary requirements. Under the new point system it is possible for any woman with a real interest in W. A. A. to earn an " K " sweater, and with this goal in view, the spirit and vitality of the association have reached a new level. Our athletic program for this year has been extensive. In the fall the sports were V(, . , , — Hansen, LittU-, Wlii-kT. liircli, SnvJc IUj I„iu Khii-— Kocnig, Ford, Cili, S.i ;cr 9 3 A A r A H hockey, swimming and tennis. Enough women c.imc out to make up two hockey teams, anj at the close of the season the teams played a hockey tournament. The swimming meet, which aroused more enthusiasm than usual, gave evidence of some new material among our freshmen and sophomores which should come to the fore in future meets. The tennis meet was the high spot of the fall sport season. The courts were in good shape even into December, so this sport had more than its usual run of Miss Vuu.ima I nun popularity this fall. A second tournament was im nutoy held in the spring, open to anyone who did not make 125 points in the fall tournament. A new winter sport was introduced at C. of E. this winter — volleyball, and judging from the interest it aroused, it bids fair to become a regular feature of our athletic program. Three teams participated in the basketball tournament held in March: Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior-Senior teams. The six- game, round-robin tournament ended with the Sophomores leading, having won all four of their games. At the close of the tournament an honorary team was chosen by the instructor, Miss Ford, and silver basketballs are to be awarded to these six players. In the spring the athletically minded turned to baseball and swimming. The base- •♦ ! Page 131 A A K A H ti ball teams played a ten-game schedule, and competition was very close. A charming water carnival was presented by the W. A. A. in connection with the Spring Music Fes- tival. The Annual May Fete, given at commencement time, was smoothly and artisti- cally done. Our social activities for the year included the party for freshmen in the fall, the mid-year dinner to welcome into membership all women who made enough points for entrance during the first semester, and the spring formal banquet at the Broadview. Besides these, the W. A. A. sponsored numerous hikes and picnics during the year. We sent two delegates to the state W. A. A. convention at Wichita, and a group of women to the annual play-day which was at Lawrence this year. We are hoping for a continuance of enthusiasm for W. A. A. and another big year in 1931-32.

The College has always been noted for its school spirit, the never-say-dic character of its athletic teams, and the loyalty and support of the student body. That challenging, pride-inspiring " C. of E. FIGHTS " is ample evidence that those on the sidelines are also Fighting Presbyterians. To Rayburn and Breed must go credit for the way this spirit has been kept alive and active during the year; the student body appreciates their enthusiastic, untiring efforts. Rayburn left school at the end of the first semester, leaving Breed in charge for the last half of the year. The many hard fought basket- ball games called for just such ability as Breed exhibited. (It ' s rumored Tom lost 10 lbs. during basketball season.) The Pep band, directed by Mr. Just, added Its share Xo the pep. Their play at pep meetings and on the field will not easily be tor- gotten. Good cheering and a good band adds ihai extra ounce of energy that has long made our fighting spirit a power to be reckoned with. 9 A A K A i Top Rcu—Hinni.

I had nervous spells; there was black spots in front of my eyes It times; my hair kept coming out and would not stay combed. I did not get enough sleep. My garters kept slipping down. Frequently in rainy weather I could not find my umbrella. People stepped on my heels and my rubbers would come off. I felt dull after eating, and frequently found it necessary to take a drink of water. I even hated to split the wood for the kitchen stove. I felt cross when my wife ' s mother came to visit us and some times in the morning the cof- fee tasted like dishwater. Then a friend of mine suggested, " Why don ' t you eat more sauerkraut? " I had never thought of it but I followed his advice. Now I can shave with a broken bottle and rub my face with cayenne pepper. My hair does not come out any more. My vision is clear and my breath is stronger, and I seldom stop to open a gate any more — I just jump the fence. Now I am the first in bed at night and the last one up in the morning. For people who are run down at the heels like I was, I can cheerfuly recom- mend sauerkraut. Not an advertisement (Identity ■. f writer revealed en request.)
