And immediately we have an- swers from the four corners of the United States. Good paper is more and more difficult to obtain. Flash bulbs have been frozen. School enrollments have de- creased. Films are rationed on the basis of last years purchases. Prices are high- er. Money should be spent only for necessities for the duration. LL THIS is discouraging- but would we be more patriotic not to have a year- book? Definitely, no! Education is defense. We need to get young peOple into our schools, and the yearbook is a good publicity agent. An important function at every war service training school is the publishing of the yearbook of the graduat- ing class. When Uncle Sam- mie sees a real need for dis- continuing yearbooks, he Will let us know. ' Here is your first issue. Take care of it until you have a cover to bind it.

Butcher became the eighth presi- dent of the Kansas State Normal School which is now the Kansas State Teachers College of Emporia. President Butcher is a true pioneer who trudged into Kansas in the wake of a prairie schooner when eleven years old. Coming with his par- ents from Illinois, his eXperience in the sunflower state began in a sod dugout in Phillips County. itThere were years? said President Butcher, iiwhen, because of frontier conditions, I was not in school at all? But our president was undaunted. At the age of twenty he entered what is now Friends University at Wichita. Later he transferred to the University of Kansas where he graduated with an A. B. degree in 1894. In 1904 he received a masters degree from Harvard University, and in 1908 he entered the University of Berlin. EFORE BECOMING a college president, President Butcher taught several years in rural district schools and in high schools. Then in 1913, President Butcher took the responsibility of guiding the Kansas State Normal School to years of greater achievements. The year 1928 looms as a bright milestone on the road of progress and was the realization of our presidentis most cherished dream for our college. That year the Kansas State Teachers College was included in the Col- lege and University Association of Col- PresiJent by Helen Henehel leges and Secondary Schools. Many honors have come to our president during his thirty years here . . . from winning a shiny milk pail with a red ribbon in a milking contest at Miller Brothersi 101 Ranch to being district governor for the Twelfth District of the Rotary Interna- tional in 1924 and 1925. President Butcher is a well-known speaker through- out the state. He has delivered many commencement addresses and has been a guest speaker for numerous occasions. He was a guest instructor at the Univer- sity of Chicago for four summer sessions. A man of reserve and dignity, Presi- dent Butcher has shouldered the adminis- trative burden of our college for three decades. Behind his office doors, he has carried on the business which coordinates . a complex institution into a smooth-func- tioning 2hall of learning? LIVING IN this world of combat between freedom and military dictatorship, we are grateful to have known a man of true democratic principle, to have come in close contact with a pioneer who has been a leader in progress. N ow in recognition of a faithful president, the editors, in be- half of the students, take this Opportunity to congratulate President Butcher for his thirty years of efficient service. We shall regret the departure of one who has shown us that he meant that oft-repeated message to his students-iiThis is your school; enjoy yourselves? continue to serve wisely the state of Kansas and Em- poria State Teachers College until the in-. auguration of the new governor, Andrew W.

Joe College, the greener-looking individual who was standing alone, resolved that he would apply himself, and that the course in Scurvy tmeis that what the fellow had called it-would prove instrumental in helping him to decide on his lifeis voca- tion. This had" been a hectic week. The ordeal of enrollment and the first day of classes had now passed into the oblivion of occasional nightmares. This was Fri- day; the annual Campus Walk sponsored Miss Maude E. Minrow, Dean of Women, enjoys being with iimy girlsii and is always happy to have the college women bring both their sorrows and their joys in to her office for a. little chat. by the Yis was in progress, but tomorrow the freshman tests would be completed. At five oiclock the next afternoon Joe finished the last of his tests, raised his weary self from the chair in Room 319, and carried his tests to the examineris desk. Joe was tired. His knowledge of reading, iriting, and irithmetic, as well as his personality and social comprehension knowledge was thoroughly tested to ac- quaint the faculty with his ability, per- sonality, and intellect. Jovial David L. MacFarlane, Dean of Men, is known all over the state for his good sense of humor, his love for sea food, and his Scotch jokes. He is ever a champion of the college students. GIRL taha! romance enters the scenel had finished her tests a few minutes previously and Joe lengthened his stride to catch up with her and ask tbecause it seemed the logical way to Open a conver- sationl what she thought of those en- trance tests. Well, they werenit so bad she guessed, but very long and rather bor- ing. He asked about her course and she replied that she was working for a life certificate. But that did not answer his own mental queries so he mentally re- viewed his own schedule. Comparison of schedules revealed that she was enrolled in Freshman Survey-yes she was sure it was Survey, not scurvyaand her rhetoric teacher was Dr. Everett Rich, who was writing a biography of the Sage of Kan- sas, William Allen White. Sheid be tak- ing Speech I from Dr. George R. R. Pflaum-who had such a cute goatee that she wished that she were a speech major sometimeahygiene from C. K. Turner, Dr. E. R.

It is only after three years in the de- partment that students realize his bark is worse than his bite. 8 methods from Miss Jenny Williams, and sight-singing from Miss Eileen Kelly. She liked college fine, and what else was he taking? He was a math major, he ex- plained, and would take college algebra and analytical geometry from Tucker, who throws chalk into the waste basket in a treacherous manner and talks so fast that it is hard to keep up with him. Then, of course, he was taking the required freshmen coursesarhetoric from Owen, Speech I from Kayser, and survey. He thought enrollment had been haphazard and unorganized, but Dr. 0. J . Peterson, head of the math department, his advisor, had been helpful, and he thought college was going to be fun. Her name? Well, she laughed, sheid thought it was simply Betty Coed, but since Dean Maude Min- row, dean of women, had asked her to make sure it was not Elizabeth she was not so certain. She was living at the dorm though, and yes, she would like to see- His name? Joe College. Yes, Betty would like to see J oe again, and if he felt the same way, why the dorms telephone number was 95. OMORROW CAME and went along with such personages as Charles 0. Haskell and Dr. Ray C. Maul, survey co-ordina- tors. Dr. M. Wesley ROper, and Dr. S. D. Mock, Clark Jackson, and H. Francis James, Miss Edna McCullough, and Miss Ruth V. Simpson, all appeared in survey classes and explained the whys and whereforeis of their departments. Dr. F. L. Gilsonis lecture on the importance of speech in the deve10pment of an esthetic appreciation of the finer things in life strengthened Bettyis determination to re- main at Emporia State and specialize in speech training. But money was an im- portant obstacle. She asked Miss Ina Borman, head of N . Y. A. employment on the campus, to help her obtain a job in one of the offices. With the help of Miss Borman, science teacher in the Labora- tory School, she obtained a position in the Publicity Office, clipping and filing in- formation about students for their home- town newspapers. A. D. Schmutz is a mild-man- nered, smiling organist and harmony teacher who has written and published a num- ber of beautiful compositions. Everett Rich has made a name for himself in Kansas and in the nation as author of the recently-published ttWilliam Allen White, the Man from Emporia? S. J. Turille, assistant profes- sor of commerce, impresses students and faculty alike with his businesslike, efficient ways.

L. MacFar- lane, dean of men, discussed the ever- popular iimenfi Football season was on and J 0e had to wear his little green iiK" cap. The day the freshmen attempted to walk up the main walk the K club had dumped Joe into the fishpond, and he had gone into Miss Mary Harrisonis introductory Span- ish class dripping wet, leaving footprints in the halls of the Administration Build- ing. On their first Homecoming, Joe asked Betty t0 the Homecoming Ball. They discovered the terrace 0n the Stu- dent Union and danced gayly t0 the music of Lee Johnsonts band, and for a few hours forgot impending nine-weekis tests. WEEKS FOLLOWED and leaves fell, along with hOpes for iiAii averages. Both Betty and Joe were in the tenth decile when the results of the Freshman En- trance Tests were compiled by Dr. Henry Schrammel, head of the Educational Measurements Department. They man- aged to keep their grades up by refrain- ing from cutting Miss Vida L. Askewis classes and not saying the donitii in the astute presence of Dr. E. R. Barrett, head of the English Department and co-author of the Barrett-Ryan test, known and "loved" throughout this section of the country. Second semester brought bas- ketball and track to the fore. J 0e, a let- terman in basketball, wrote short notes to Betty when he was out of town for games -letters that reached her after his re- turn to the campus. Coach Paul Kutnink didnit object, as long as his side line ac- tivities didnit interfere with his court ac- tions. Clark Jackson is the happy-looking industrial arts instructor who thinks that iia woman is only a woman, but a, good cigar is a smoke? 10 Betty was taking elementary general mathematics from A. W. Philips and it took Joe many long hours to show her 5-4ths of a whole. The hours spent in Philipsi classes resulted in frequent colds because he had to have fresh air. But Joe dwarfed her miniature problems when he eXplained that Tucker could add 2 and 3 and get 7eand that it was mathe- matically correct. Enrolling in fencing under Dr. Harold M. Priest, Betty learned to lunge and tire- pose," to counter-attack and to parry. She tried out for Splash Club, and under the direction of Miss Dorothy Boynton, learned formation swimming and sports- manship in water sports. OE HAD PLAYED a horn in the high school band and at the beginning of his second year he enrolled in the Emporia State Band, under Orien Dalley, enthusiastic conductor of both college band and orches- tra. Hours of practice in Music Hall and exercises in formation drills 0n the foot- ball team increased Joeis amazement of his own music and appreciation of the other. The twilight band concerts were initiated at Dr. Orville J . Borchers, sug- gestion while Joe was a member of the band. Loafing in the Hornets nest, talking to Norman H. Eppink after enrollment was completed for first semester his s0ph0- more year, J 0e met Betty, and discovered that she had changed her course to com- plete a B. S. in Education in 1943 with a speech major. Now, she commented, she had her groups to fill and would have to take a modern language and some sociol- ogy. J 0e suggested that she take German because he had heard that it was a snap under Aiken, and anyway, sheid probably enjoy his lectures on Texas folk-lore. But Betty knew that Charles Boyer was French, and since French was the lan- guage of romance she enrolled in ele- mentary French from Dr. Minnie Miller. Her French report in the Modern Lan- guage Office later on in the semester gave her many sleepless nights and she wished she had taken biological science from Frank U. Agrelius and C. F. Gladfelter to fill a science group rather than a language group. .................................... .............. tLefti W. B.

Simpson guides in the paths of right- eousness all the college women interested in being domestic. 11 Dr. Luil rates just after God and Roosevelt to the children in the Laboratory School. For that mat- ter, even college students. in the Education Depart- ment stand in awe of him. 12 HE SECOND YEAR Joe ventured into Science Hall, where he became some- what acquainted with physics as treated by Dr. S. W. Cram, an ardent applicant of the lever principle-with a fishing rod. Here he learned the general principles in- volved in mechanics, sound, and heat, and failed to assimilate the knowledge regard- ing the Wilson Cloud Chamber. Betty was taking psychology and even the eXplanations by the dignified Puri- tanic Ed Geldreich 0f the synapse, rod and cone principle of color blindness, and Pavlovts experiment with the dog to de- termine conditioned and unconditioned responses failed to help her understand the co-ordinated workings of the human mind and the human body. T WAS THE next semester that Betty and Joe attended the funeral services held for the library. The legislature had ap- prOpriated $250,000 for a new library and with great pomp and ceremony the Stu- dent Council had sponsored a wake to celebrate the occasion. Betty and J 0e still study in the poorly lighted, stuffy library -priorities, you know. Betty didntt enjoy the party as much as she should have. Her course in prin- ciples of geography from Guy A. Buzzard was worrying her as she tried to learn the geographical situations that produce great cities, when, as she eXplained it to Joe, all Buzzard points out to us is the end of his finger and- Joe needed a job, so he; approached Dean MacFarlane, dean of men, history teacher and news commentator tfrequent references to Scotch ancestors included at no extra casteprices for bag-pipe con- certs furnished upon requestL He got the job, sweeping out Albert Taylor Hall at five otclock in the morning under the supervision of oneof the schools many janitors. Betty was working in the general office C. P. Baber, head librarian, helped make the plans for the new library which we have not been al- lowed to build on account of material shortages. But we have not given up hOpe. under R. G. Cremer as switchboard oper- ator this semester and as she pinch-hitted for the other secretaries occasionally she decided that her shorthand could be im- proved and audited a course in shorthand taught by Miss Adelaide Kauzer and took typing from S. J. Turille. She joined the Commerce Club-meetings sparkled by Vic Hiett jokes. She was taking stage- craft from R. Russel Porter and spent long tiring hours backstage creating scen- ery for Gilson Player productions. ITH SO MANY activities to occupy their time the sephomore year passed quickly, and after Joe and Betty had promised to write often and to return in September they bade each other good- bye. Betty worked in the local bank dur- ing the summer and J 0e followed the har- vest, both eager to earn enough money to send themselves back to school. Summer passed and with it the peace that America had cherished. A crisis with Japan was impending. Soldiers were in training and troops were being conscripted. Joe enlisted in the Naval Reserve V-7 and came back to school to begin a more comprehensive study of physics and mathematics under able masters of the sometimes absent mind. Betty was made a member of the Gil- son Players, begotten by Dr. F. L. Gilson, head of the Speech Department and author of the beloved little red speech text. This was the event of Bettyis junior year. The Gilson Players! Gilson plays, including assistant directing 0f the tradi- tional Freshman Play, kept Bettyis time occupied and Joe was busy with his ac- tivities as a sergeant in the pre-induction army of Vie Trusler. HE TIME Betty and Joe had together came less and less as the weeks went by. One afternoon when J 0e strolled into Dr. F. L. Gilson, head of the Speech Department, will long be remembered in the state as the origi- nator of the Gilson Players. 'He. is always ready and Willing to help plan and present. pageants and plays in small communities in the state. Dr. Minnie M.

He and Mrs. Brown are seen often sponsoring all-schooll parties. tAbovei Dr. H. E. Schramu mel expounds one of his theories in his vigorous. way.

He is a friend and protector of non- poisonous snakes. the art gallery he found Betty admiring the paintings done by the art professors of the school. Norman R. Eppinkis func- tional art looked well on paper, they de- cided, but H. Francis J amesi nature paint- ings were noteworthy. iiI like Cullerfi Betty said, iibecause, the mural in the Hornets Nest is so true to life, and he sponsored it, you know? As they walked out of the Art Gallery they heard someone in the auditorium and slipped into the balcony to see who was playing the organ. A. D. Schmutz was playing several of his own compositions and arrangements. Betty and J oe listened silently for a time and then quietly slipped out into the rotunda. Betty had to go in and see Miss Ethel Melendy about working in the Bursaris office next se- mester and Joe hurried down to W. D. Rossis office to check on his credits as the registrar had them recorded. . ECEMBER CAME and with it Pearl Har- bor. But college life continued-not as usual. Second semester found a severe drop in enrollment and Betty was without a job on the campus. She applied for a job down town and was given a position as cashier at the Granada theater. Betty arranged her courses so that she would have her afternoons free. She en- rolled in advanced general sociology un- 15 G. A, Buzzard petri'fies his geography students by pointing an outstretched finger at them and de- manding an answer. 16 der Dr. C. E. Arnett. A sportsman and a hunter, his practical democracy and his imitation of a drooling idiot interested Betty in the sociological field, and she de- cided to do more work in the same vein next semester. Joe enrolled in industrial arts. His first eXperiences in the shOp were not as treacherous as he had suspected they would be. Other than learning to con- centrate in the noise that saturated the basement of the Administration Building he learned to use a saw properly and to Operate an electric power saw. But most important of all he met Clark L. Jackson, who is the kind of a fellow who believes iia woman is only a woman, but a good cigar is a smoke? Betty, feeling that home economics might come in handy someday, enrolled in a clothing course from Miss Ruth Simpson and learned how to turn a neat seam and put collars on dresses correctly. From Miss Helen Clark she learned more than how to boil water without scorching it. Through her work in the Home Eco- nomics Department Betty became ac- quainted with the principles involved in making a success of later life in regard to the home and the family. CHEMISTRY was Greek to J oe who ex- plored it under the careful guidance of Dr. Blackman, who kept him and other unknowing freshmen from confusing H20 with H2804. It was in the chemis- try department that J oe learned to disre- gard unusual sounds and repugnant odors and to continue his eXperiments to be re- garded in his chemistry notebook tto be sold at. a later date to some less indus- trious pupiD. Betty and Joe found their interests mergedejust this once?ein the music field. Betty took a few voice lessons from Robert Taylor but decided that member- ship in the Symphonic Chorus under the direction of Dr. Orville J. Borchers was Dr. L. E. Blackman is the man who sponsors all the funny-looking gadgets and the horrible smells in the chemistry room. sufficient to satisfy her love of music. J 0e joined the chorus, too, and together they sang in the spring presentation of the ttElijahii when Richard Bonelli was guest baritone, and Dr. Borchers forgot to call roll the night they both skipped practice. At the close of the junior year J 0e was elected to the Student Council by the United Students political party as Vice- president. Working on the Bulletin Joe became acquainted with George H. Phil- lips, publicity director of the campus and faculty advisor 0f the college publications. Heis like the girl with the curl tand he does have nice wavy hairi who ttwhen she was good, she was very very good, and when she was bad, she was horrid? tIt is obvious that I am not enrolled in his New English classj itVicii Trusler has as much fun running his obstacle course as the boys in military training classes. And we have heard rumors that he can get around faster than the fellows. SENIOR YEAR came around and education courses became pre-requisites. Dr. H. G. Lull helped them to eXplain the present. crisis by telling of the lack of ingenuity in American youth.

NE NOVEMBER afternoon before Thanksgiving vacation the two re- ceived a summons to come to the presi- dentis office. Miss Bea Hoover showed them into the office of the executive and while they stood there with shaking knees, and trembling lips, Joe slipped his handi into Bettyis. The presidentis cordial smile and friendly greeting put them at ease and when President Thomas W. Butcher told them that they had been selected to be members of the national collegiate tiWhots Whoii they felt lifted into the realms of the world renowned. He offered them his sincere congratulations and as Betty and Joe were walking down the main walk and had recovered from shock, Betty whispered that prexy was a pretty swell fellow. J oe agreed, because a busy execu- tive whose time was filled with official duties and whose thoughts were filled with administrative responsibilities, who would take time out to congratulate per- sonally students for bringing distinction to the college would come under anybodyis heading of ttall-rightit guy. From the Board of Regents when they arrived home, Betty and J oe each found a letter in the same vein as the presidents congratulations.

The Emporia State ball carrier tucked the pigskin in the crook of his arm and ran for the goal line . N SEPTEMBER 26, the men headed north to meet the Centaurs of the Cavalry Replacement Center at Fort Riley, Kansas. Balanced around the quar- terbacking and broken field running of Bernard Taylor, the team lined up with Marvin Bayless at the ttsnapper backii post, flanked by Warren Dick and Gerald White at left and right guard, respec- tively. Holding down the tackle posts were Eldon Scharff and Wallace Robin- son. On the wings were Les Thompson and Curtis Fischer at right and left end. The fullback spot was held by Sam Knox, left half by Bud Foster, and right half by Dale Bowlin. However, the army team, sparked by Benny Sheradan and backed with former stars of the gridiron proved too much for the green Hornet team and the final score read 39 to 14 with the army on the larger end. Coach Welch played all 38 of the traveling squad in this game, thereby allowing them to gain much needed eXperience for the coming Washburn game. The Ichabods from the State Capital invaded the Hornet stadium on October 3. and found the Welchmen ready with only a few minor changes in the lineup. "Tuf- fyii Allen had taken over left guard while 24 as the rest of' the team battled to keep his path clear. McGee had come in at quarterback, shift- ing Taylor to left half. In this first C. I. C. game, the Hornets proved their prow- ess. They held the upper hand through- out the game, making 14 first downs to the Ichabodsi 4 and rolling 160 yards by rushing to 90 for the heroes of ttSleepy Hollow? Both Emporia State counters came in the final period and Tayloris 75 yard run back of a Washburn punt for a touchdown brought the cheering sections to their feet. When the final gun sound- ed, ttSilent Joel, pealed out a 12 t0 0 via- tory for Emporia. 1r WAS interesting to note that some of the Emporia State players in this game were former stars of the Washburn coach when he coached at Colby. With two weeks to work, the Hornet squad began, with grim determination, to prepare for the Homecoming skirmish with the Moundbuilders of Southwestern on October 17. The Builders came to the Emporia campus with a record of having never had their goal line crossed in three games. The game played on a muddy field proved to be a contest of fumbles. Emporiais lone counter came on a 67 yard run by Taylor on a lateral twhich inci- dentally bounced once on the ground be- fore the Emporia State back clutched iti. Although the game ended in a 6 t0 6 tie, the score did not reveal the true facts of the game. Emporia outplayed their larg- er Opponents throughout the game, mak- ing 13 first downs t0 the Buildersi 4 and gaining 193 yards by rushing While the Builders 10st 11. The one ray of sun- shine on that damp field was the crown- ing of Miss Erma Crawford as Home- coming Queen during the half of the game. The following week, October 24, the Hornets made their bi-annual trip to Hays to assist the Fort Hays Tigers in celebrating their homecoming. The squad traveled Without Les Thompson and Charley Martin, Who were absent because of injuries. The Hornets, however, threw cold water on the Tiger festivities With a 40 to O defeat. There are usually side- lights on the football trips. The Hays trip was no exception. The boys seemed to have trouble eating Chow Mein at a Chinese restaurant in Junction City. Robinson tso the boys sayi courted a girl on the train and Marvin Bayless gallantly carried a girls suitcase off the train at Ellis only to discover that he had forgot- ten to get her name and address. On Goblin Day, October 31, the Hast- ings, Nebraska, Broncos came south in an attempt to avenge last years 33 to 12 de- feat at the Hornet hands.

On No- vember 7 , the men mounted the train for the Wichita game. By dressing on the train they arrived only slightly late. Again playing on a muddy field, the Hor- net machine bogged down to the tune of 27 to 6. This was another non-league loss for the Hornets. Whether one is superstitious or not, Friday the 13th is still an unlucky day. It proved doubly so on this November 13 when the Hornets met St. Benedictis. By losing this game they lost all chances of winning first place in the league. The Hornets just couldnt seem to ifclickii that night. The game ended 33 to 6 with the Hornets carrying the lighter number. For their last game of the season, Em- poria tangled with the Gorillas from the State Teachers College at Pittsburg. On November 21, the Hornets met the Pittsburg Gorillas in an attempt to force the league leading Pitt team into a tie for first place with St. Benedictis. A strong push in the first quarter caught the Hor- nets off guard and the Gorillas rolled up 13 points. Then the Hornet line tight- ened and the rest of the game moved back and forth on a muddy field without score. .26 ----------- .;:.I-':' .2. , -'.$I;I;Z:.. The 3K3 Club assembled with tri- umphant smiles and poised paddles when the freshman men who had violated a 3K3 Club rule by dating freshman women performed for the crowd at the Hastings-Emporia State game. The final gun rang down the curtain on the 1942 season with the Hornets trailing 13 to O. THUS ENDED the 1942 season of the Em- poria State team. By far the out- standing player on the Hornet squad this year was Co-captain Bernard Taylor. The broken field running of this Hornet back and his cool-headed quarterbacking kept Emporia in the running when it seemed useless to try further. The hats of Emporia State are off to you, Taylor. From his post behind the line, Co-cap- tain Curtis Fischer many times seemed to be the only Emporia defense. In the Wichita game, especially, he was all over the field and seemed to be in almost every Emporia State tackle. Taylor and Fischer, along with two other regulars, find graduation ringing down the curtain on their football careers at Emporia. The other two men are Mar- Vin Bayless, center; and Charlie Martin, end. As for the other 37 men on the squad, no one can predict how many will return when the Fall of 43 rolls around. Most of these boys are in reserves or will be in reserves. Their future depends upon Uncle Sam. OOKING UP from the playing field we see the other side of this great game -the side of the spectator. Outstanding features included the traditional flag rais- ing ceremonies, aided this year by a mili- tary guard of honor from the boys in the military reserve training classes. The college band, under the direction of Orien Dalley, took over the ttfifteen minute intermissionsi, between halves of the home games and provided brilliant spectacles of marching and music. They assisted in the coronation of the Home- coming Queen during the Southwestern game, and between periods of the Hast- ings game they formed an A for the Army, an M for the Marines, and an N for the Navy While playing the songs of these three branches. Sigma Pi Sigma, girls pep organiza- tion, aided cheerleaders Laura Tucker, Mavis Richardson, Betty Long, and Marie Shaver in keeping up the pep Of a de- pleted student body. If this be the last football season for the duration of the war, it has been a great, if not a completely successful, sea- son. When once again the Hornets take to the field you may be sure that the Hor- net sting Will still be present. The Hor- net may have his wings clipped, but he Will never lose his sting.

Walking up the campus, I surely was surprised at what I found. Imagine-no decorations! Only the Administration Building, the Student Union, and the Sta- dium were decorated by various campus groups, financed by the Student Council. 'But when the Student Council twho controlled Homecoming for the first time this yeari explained that they were put- ting up fewer decorations this year to conserve money and materials for the war effort, I decided that it was pretty won- derful. This is the kind of patriotism that makes us fellows proud to march, march, march, and to drill, drill, drill. OON AFTER my arrival, I discovered that I had a job to do.

A moment later, he saw groups of girls rushing out of the two dormitories-Morse Hall and the Morse Hall Annex. He noticed that they were all rushing in the same direction, so he decided to follow to find out what the at- traction was. He followed the girls into the large pink building in front of the lake. Inside were large tables and big brutes paddling a lit- tle white ball back and forth, back and forth. Waldo moved slowly past a large mural hung on the east wall and into an- other room where a group of students were smoking cigarets and writing things from one note-book to the other. Sud- denly, faster than a comet, more brilliant than a fire a long-legged youth rushed past muttering, ttGosh! I just gotta get there in time today. If I dont Iill get locked outfi 34 College Waldo followed the young man to Room 818 and was on the verge of entering when the door slammed in his face and someone shouted angrily inside, ilWell, young man, you managed to get here on time today. You missed out on our study of the intransitive verb yesterday. I trust you have studied. You will eXplain to the class exactly what a transitive verb 1s.ii There was something frightful and dangerous about that voice, so Waldo de- scended the stairs to the second floor. A friendly group of students were chatter- ing among themselves in one room. Waldo walked in and sat down in the back row. A tall man walked in to the front of the room and made several unintelligible re- marks about something called sociology. iiToday we are studying the hobo? he said cryptically. Waldo felt uneasy, but he decided he would attract less attention if he sat still, than if he were to get up and leave the room. ilWhat do you think causes peOple to become hoboes ?ii the tall man continued. liWhat are hobo motives? Are they loaf- ing freight enginesehobomotives ?ii Wal- do saw several students reach into their pockets and pull out Clothespins. Some of the students took up the dis- cussion with frequent displays of oratory and much gesticulation. Some young Pastry .. women made severe deprecatory remarks about the order of vagabond knights. Waldo thought his burning ears must bear a close resemblance to signal flags. He heaved a sigh of relief at the end of the class period when he hurried out shamefacedly. E FELT A little better when he could lose himself in the crowd of students gathering in the hall. Many of them leaned on a circular railing that surrounded a large round hole in the floor through which could be seen a portion of the hall on the first floor. The students did not stay very long, however, before they began to dis- perse to the various rooms again. Hav- ing regained some of his composure, Waldo decided to enter another room on the second floor. This time a rather short, bald man came into the room Which Waldo had en- tered. The man appeared to be a for- eigner. At least he talked in a foreign language. Presently the students began to answer him in the same language. Waldo became frightened when he recog- nized that the language was German. Afraid to risk staying in a Bund meeting, he sneaked out through the door as the short, bald man turned his head in the opposite direction. Wandering upstairs he found a group of students who were leaning disconso- 7A2 401m zfealz Kellogg Library, where Waldo rested for awhile- until he dipped into Danteis iiDivine Comedy and was frightened into leaving the premises. 35 lately around a door. liOnly nine? one of them said. liHe wonit be here for five more minutes? As Waldo curiously drifted nearer, one of the weary waiters dropped his arm about Waldois shoulders for support and queried invitingly, ilWonit you join us, chumiw Down the hall came a long, limber, loose-jointed figure. iiGood morning, children? he greeted them breezily as he led the way into one of the strangest rooms Waldo had ever seen. iiSit down and rest easy, children, because you are going to the hardest work youill do all day? In alarm, Waldo cast a longing glance toward the door. llDonit be scared, chum? his newly-found friend reassured him. liltis all in a days work? ltPencils readylii came from the un- gainly personage. liWe are now going to tap as rapidly as possible in these little squares for ten minutes? Waldo felt a pencil thrust into his hand and saw a sheet of paper pushed before him. tiAll set? Ready. Go!" 080 this is education ?ii thought Waldo in disgust. llThis is childis play? 36 After three minutes Waldois fingers began to feel numb. After five minutes his whole arm felt numb, but he had to keep on. The last five minutes every tap was excruciating. When at last llStOplii was called, Waldo sank back into his chair wondering if he would ever be able to move his arm again. He- looked at the long page of dots. ilAt least thatis over? he thought. Then all his reviving spirit left him as he heard, liNow, children, count your dots? Doggedly Waldo set to work, the groans of his new friend in his ears. After count- ing 10,000 dots Waldo feared for his Vision, for when he looked up dots were everywhere-on land, on sea, and in the airefloating before him. THE WHISTLE that meant respite blew; and he stumbled out, trying to find his way through the dots that were swarming before him. Caught in a current of flow- ing humanity, he was swept down the stairs to the second floor again. Think- ing of the round railing to which he could cling for support, he swung to his right and wandered dazedly toward it. But what was this? A tall man with a Waldo wandered into Music Hall to be greeted by all sorts of weird noises. Someone in a back room was shouting and a woman upstairs was yelling iiE-e-e-e? And then in the auditorium, he saw a man wav- ing a little stick at some people. The man fainted When Waldo an- swered "Hereii to his name at roll call. Waldo saw some sensible-enough- looking boys doing the funniest things. For instance, they ran up the steps at the football stadium and climbed over the wall-when there was a gate right there, too! friendly smile passed. tiAre you feeling faint? Right this way? he said as he gently eased Waldo along. As Waldo looked up through clearing eyes he feared that he was back in that torture chamber again, for now he was seeing squares before his eyes. He al- most groaned aloud before he realized that this was only a blackboard covered with many lines. Then he observed the friendly man drawing a circle on the board and dividing it into fourths. Now he heard the man saying, it1 shall show you five-fourths of one object? Waldo tried to peer down the manis sleeves but could see nothing except hair. The old brown hat on the table did not look like a magicianis hat. Waldo won- dered if he hadnit misunderstood the man and strained his ears to hear better. But the next words he caught only in- creased his bewilderment. ttNow I have shown you five-fourths of one object. I will expect you to be able to eXplain this in the next examination? Waldo rested his head on his arms, too tired to question any more. Shortly the eleven oiclock whistle blew. This time his only thought was to escape this building for a breath of fresh air. Once upon the steps and in the cool air, he felt eager for a new adventure. That rugged individualisme-which he boasted as being the cornerstone of his philosophy ewas not yet crushed. Across the green campus he followed a long, winding walk to a building from which issued strange n01ses. HIGH PIERCING scream rent the air. Waldo rushed inside to the rescue. But once inside, he was lost in a din of sound. Chancing to find one open door, he stepped inside and lowered himself quiet- ly into a chair near the door and looked about. The group of young women in the forepart of the room paid no attention to him. A tall, blond female with beautiful blue eyes stepped before the group. Waldo leaned forward eagerly. ttDo ti la so falii were the ear-splitting sounds which issued from her beautiful throat. This was the last straw. Even a rugged individualist could stand only so much. As Waldo hurried out of this room, he was startled to hear someone shouting his name. iiWaldo Pete Hanklii an irate male voice bellowed. iiDoesnit anyone know anything about Waldo Pete Hank? If he doesnt show up at the next chorus prac- tice, Iill take his name out of my card filelii . 37 iiHereIli Waldo called as he peered cautiously through the door into the Music Hall Auditorium. The irate man turned suddenly and stared as one in a trance. Without warn- ing, he collapsed on the floor; and Waldo, overcome with fright, hurried through the hall where workmen were replacing a pane of glass. In his unaccustomed haste, he care- lessly stumbled, and his outflung hand came in contact with the sharp edge of the glass. As he gazed in consternation at his dripping hand, a tender-hearted redhead who chanced by exclaimed, "Man, take that down yonder to the Science Hall and theyill fix you up? OLDING his ragged handkerchief around his bleeding wound, he soon reached the Science Hall. Through queerly- scented halls he made his way, glanc- ing right and left for the sign, iiHealth Department? As he paused on the sec- ond floor to get. his bearings, a late-comer to the first-aid Class hurried up the stairs behind him. Sizing up the situation at a glance, she said, ilCome on, fellow. Weill fix you up? Waldo blinked his eyes as he felt the unaccustomed pressure of a gentle hand and heard sympathetic voices urging him to iisit still and relax? In a jiffy his hand was bandaged, and he started to his feet with muttered words of thanks; buteiiWelre not through with you yet? said a sweet young thing, push- ing him back into his chair. iiWeive got to practice our traction splints on some- thing that wears pants? In only a few minutes Waldo was as helpless as a mummy and looked more like one. Then he was forced to lie there while the girls eXplained to the rest of the class how the bandages were put on. Aft- erwards he was rolled onto a stretcher and carted away into a corner while the students gathered about a skeleton and examined it minutely. At last Waldo heaved a sigh of relief. 38 The whistle was blowing. But to his dis- may, the students rushed off and forgot him! Fortunately these bandages had been tied by girls, so Waldo was finally able to extricate himself-even though it took him over half an hour. At last, able to stand on his feet, Waldo felt weak and hungry. ilNow for a big dinnerlii he thought, cursing his luck for having missed out on the chili feed. At the College Grill, he studied a menu in anticipation. To his extreme disap- pointment, he discovered only a solitary nickel in his pockets-just enough to get a cup of Java, the refresher of weary men. Glancing at the clock, he saw that he had barely time to gulp the coffee down before starting on his next pilgrimage through K. S. T. C. Standing at the entrance gate, Waldo glanced about the campus. His eye was caught by the unusual drabness of a stuc- coed building on the northeast corner of the campus. Toward this building he walked briskly, matching his gait to that of the hustling students. Inside the door he paused. To the left appeared a forbidding wood and wire en- closure. From the right a tantalizing odor caused him to ascend a stairway to where a bevy of girls were busily baking -of all thingsecookies and navy beans. AN ANXIOUS little freshman surrepti- tiously slipped him some cookies and whispered, iiQuick! Tell me how they taste before Miss Clark comes? To Waldo anything short of nails would have tasted good, and he assured her the cookies were delicious. Other girls asked Waldo to sample their cookies, and he munched happily until an unpleasant odor assailed him. iiOh, the beans!" someone shrieked. But she was too late. Already smoke poured out of the oven. In his disdain at this unnecessary waste, Waldo dropped an incautious remark that made the girls turn on him in fury. it . . . And smell badPi they concluded. itIf you think that smells bad, j ust go over to the chemistry lab? An angry miss escorted Waldo t0 the door and shoved him toward the direction of the Science Hall. In the chemistry lab, Waldo noticed shelves of bottles containing many-col- ored liquids. At tables cluttered with glass tubes, gas burners, and various odd- ly-shaped flasks, students were combining strange substances. Waldo couldnit un- derstand how they could keep their glass containers from breaking when they set them directly over a gas flame. Watching a student pour two crystal- clear substances together, Waldo blinked his eyes unbelievingly when the combined substances turned bright red. Now the student poured two other clear substances together; and behold, Waldo saw blue. He started backing toward the door when something eXploded in his ear. iiYouire right. Thatis hydrogen? Waldo thought about the nicest place on the cam- pus was the building where all the people did was sit around and smoke, drink cakes, read tEsquirefi someone said, but Waldo was already out of the room. Outside again in the fresh, clean air, Waldo rapidly r-ecuperated. An activated mass of blue on the west side of the cam- pus commanded his attention. Approach- ing this new center of interest, he was first shocked, then delighted. HERE SHAPLEY girls in blue shorts were cavorting about, playing itBaa, Baa, Black Sheep? Waldo thought this was a rather old kindergarten, but -ttP1ays and Games? a passerby informed him. The girls were pretty, but Waldo soon became bored by their childish games. Lacking something better to do, he sat down on a bench in front of the gymnasium where he watched squirrels scampering up and down trees. Presently, a group of splendid-looking young men marched out of the gym. At first he was alarmed at seeing soldiers, but a moment later he saw that they only carried wooden guns. He watched these and play bridge. He decided immediately if he came to college, he wanted to take all his courses there. 39 dignified young men with interest, for he felt the remote possibility of soon having to do similar things himself. Although heid had many escapades, the Selective Service Draft left few 100pholes. Waldo shuddered at the thought of having his rugged individualism destroyed by regi- mentation. The changing formations of the mili- tary trainees seemed rather intricate at times, but Waldo felt that he understood this better than he had been able to under- stand anything on the campus so far. In fact, he was quite happy when one of his comrades who had suffered with him in the iidot room" left the group and came over toward him. ttHello, churn. What do you say we go over to the Union for a smokeiw The question was imperative, and Waldo glad- 1y followed. Sinking into a soft chair in the Union, Waldo felt more at ease than he had for a long time. tiHave a eigaret, chum? his comrade commanded. In the reading room, Waldo was greet- ed by a friendly professor who came out of the fountain room. itWhy so bewil- 4O After the Alec Templeton concert, Waldo followed the crowd to a house where people swarmed around the screen and looked in at every window. There was a hot jam session going on inside, and Waldo almost got squashed in the mad scramble to see what was go- ing on. dered and melancholy? he asked curi- ously. iiWhy, I was just wondering where Iid eat supper," Waldo managed to say. tiWell, say now, why dont you come over to a duck supper at the Menis Fac- ulty Club. were having some Lake Wooster ducks tonight? Having finished the last course of the delicious duck supper, Waldo felt that he had been handsomely compensated for having missed out on the sixteen bowls of chili. Adjusting his belt more comfort- ably about his middle, Waldo tried to listen to the mixed conversation about the room. -1HE UNGAINLY man who had tortured him so mercilessly in the itdot roomii that morning was engaged in a heated ar- gument with a rotund man in plaid kilts. The argument appeared to be a contest of verbosity over the freedom of India. In one corner of the room several professors were discussing gas rationing. In an- other corner wages and labor unions were the immediate tOpies of discussion. A large man with a red goatee eXpressed his ideas on how short women should wear their skirts. His Opponent, being unable to owe with the bearded manis argumen- tative ability, changed the subject to slacks. One man who had sat quietly looking on, took his watch from his pocket and announced that he would have to go home to take his wife to the Alec Templeton concert. Apparently the other faculty members had to take their wives, too. At least they dispersed suddenly, leaving Waldo standing alone out on the doorstep. What would he do now? PRESENTLY he heard the sound of a pi- ano from the Administration Building. This, he decided, was the Alec Templeton concert which he had heard about. He did not have the money for admission, but he sauntered over toward the building out of sheer curiosity. He arrived just at in- termission when a large portion of the audience was out in the halls. Wonder- ing how he might get in, he took advan- tage of an Opportunity. Someone had drOpped a ticket stub which Waldo picked up. With this stub, he walked boldly through the door to the balcony. It was uncomfortably hot in the bal- cony. Waldo was sweltering. He forgot his discomfort for a time when Temple- ton swung out with some irresistible iiBoogie Woogiefi Waldo had never eX- pected to see a man in a swallow-tailed coat display such exhibitions. Waldo no- ticed a lot of empty seats near the stage on the first floor. He wondered why peo- ple chose to sit in the hot balcony when they might occupy those empty seats. Waldo was still puzzling over the empty-seat riddle when the audience started to leave. He found himself pushed along with the crowd and was unable to extricate himself even after he got out- side. Many of the peOpl-e dispersed from all sides of the crowd, but he seemed to be caught in a little mob right in the cen- ter of the whole human mass. Try as he would, he could not get out of this little mob. They continued right down the street for several blocks. Waldo saw there was no use resisting this invincible force. He began to feel sea-sick. Not until he found himself crowded against a screen door, did he know What it was all about. There at a piano in the Kappa Sig house was Alec Templeton surrounded by young men with various musical instruments. Waldo heard someone remark that this was a jam session. Jammed against the screen door as he was, Waldo agreed that this was a true statement. The iljam- mini ii and iijivini ii of the Varsity Band that assailed his ears from within was far more fearful than anything he had heard that morning. When the mob on the porch finally thinned out, Waldo pushed himself away from the screen door and found that he still retained some feeble powers of loco- motion. Recalling his many hectic eX- periences of the day, he wished that he had remained in Wilson Park instead of venturing through the strange buildings on the campus. Critically in need of sleep and lacking energy to go as far as the railroad tracks, he limped into Wilson Park for the night. The night air was chilly, but Waldo was too weary to notice. How proud Waldo llPeteii Hank the Hobo would have felt had he known of his rare accomplishment. He was the first per- son to have made a success at staying in Wilson Park after curfewl??? iBREAD ' WNW ., UNE . g. .- ,1 : W x . ,, 6 l, V RN 41 They Work Without THREE COUNCIL members elected at the end of the 1942 Spring term did not return to school in the fall; consequently five places on the Student Council were open-two freshmen positions and one position each in the s0phomore, junior, and senior classes. With five offices un- der the hammer, political rivalry was in- tense. Qualifications of candidates were -as in past years-brown curly hair, a pocketful of chewing gum, and standing dates in at least three fraternities or sor- orities. After election, the Councils first job was the election of cheer leaders. Most of them acted on committees during Homecoming-making plans for the dance, the movie, or for the election of the queen. They had a part in the deci- sion to cut the athletic fund three per cent. They arranged for movie convoca- tions and planned school parties.

A girl friend and I broke a rush date on Thursday evening to go to a meeting an Independent told us about. It was called Winnetaska. and we hadnit the slightest idea what it was about, but we intended to find out. And now that I am a senior I can look back and say we really found out. We learned to smile bravely as girls on all sides were asked to dance and we were left to hold up the pillars. We gave up our iiold one-twofi Hometown dance step for the famous Emporia Rock. We be- gan to know which line to feed a new ac- quaintance 0n the dance floor. We met many. girls during the dance and at the meeting afterward, and many of those acquaintanceships have ripened into rich friendships. Our first college formal came through Winnetaska and with it, our first receiving line. HE NEXT years have meant evenings of fun with old and new friends, meet- ings in the Y. W. room with coke dates afterward, committee meetings, teas, pic- nics, hayrack rides, dinners, formals. The big events of this semester have been the annual Winnetaska Tea for freshmen women, the hayrack ride which turned into a picnic in the Student Union because of weather conditions, and the Winnetaska-Mu Ep formal dinner-dance, built around a iiNightclubii theme. As yet no women have been made mem- bers of the newly-organized Mutaska Players, but several are hOping to qualify soon. The members of the Winnetaska cabinet are Heft t0 righti Dorothy Norvell, treasurer; Geri Dilworth, music chairman; Betty Crabtree, social chairman; Mary Kay Horan, president; Winifred Ketch, sec- 44 retary; Frances Peterson, vice-president; Miss Ina Barman, sponsor; and Helen Mae Lamberson, courtesy chairman.

That was the sales talk of Roger Day, President of Mu Ep back in 1939, that convinced this green iifreshieii that he should join the organ- ized independent men on this campus. That choice has never been regretted. The purpose behind Mu Ep, I learned, is to give independent men an opportunity to participate in the same type of social activities as do the various Greek organ- izations. Any independent man may join, and the benefits he receives from Mu Ep only equal the work he puts into the or- ganization. Day was right about meeting a fine group of girls. I still count many of my friends as young ladies upon whose toes I have trodden every Thursday night dur- ing the past four years. But Roger failed to point out that there was also a group of fellows at those Thursday night dances. A bunch of guys as fine as anyone would care to meet. The first semester I attended, we had 175 fel- lows and it still is nice to reminisce, and then to look around and see those same fellows today acting as leaders in both the campus Independent and Greek organiza- tions, alike. The training they all re- ceived, the contacts they all made, and the fellowship they learned have stood them in good stead. Highlight of every fall semester is the hayrack ride where we again join with Winnetaska for an evening of riding in the hay, feeding our appetites and sing- ing under the moon. But this year the rains came, and we were driven indoors. The party contin- ued in the basement of the Union, how- ever, and the evenings entertainment CU saw the birth of the MuTaska players.

I certainly will? HE STATE CONFERENCE that was held this fall was without doubt the most important Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. ac- tivity that has been on this campus for several years. However, during the first week of school, these organizations spon- sored, a campus tour, all-school mixer and tea for all new students on the campus. This year the YW successfully tried the chili feed, which has been a tra- dition for the YM. HE ANNUAL retreat of the Y Cabinet this year was shortened to just one evening. Formerly, the custom had been to spend the night. Butcheris cabin at Lake Kahola was the scene of the gala occasion. Who could help it if the foot- ball found in a dark corner of the cabin was flat, worn out, and in other words, no good? Nevertheless, the football served its purpose. The food was delicious. When the time for dessert came, the ice cream had to be cut with an ice pick; the cream was frozen so hard a knife wouldnit dent. it. One of the most difficult problems was keeping the candles lighted. The candles were the only means of light, too. The purpose of the retreat was to plan the theme for the yearis program and to have a good time. Both objectives were reached, and the theme chosen was iiPeace, Progress, and Posterity? RUTH CHITTY and Jay Clothier were asked to go to Wichita, October 4, to a State Y.W.C.A. and Y.M.C.A. committee meeting concerning the state conference at Emporia State. Carrol Moon, a regional secretary, who was a guest on the retreat, offered some good suggestions for the betterment of the organizations. He was to catch the Topeka bus on the highway at 9 oiclock. Something went wrong, and Carrol was seen the next morning in TOpeka at. 6 :30, exhausted and quite disgusted at his miss- ing the bus. The faculty sponsors were: Mrs. Elsie Pine, Dr. Wesley Roper, and E. J. Calkins. The significance of this picture lies not in who the people are but what they are.

T HE ESTES Park Conference is a thrill of a lifetime to those students who are able to go to the ten-day meeting. Two students, Winifred Donnellan and Don Mettler, delegates from here, had to go to Estes to get acquainted. When Winnie stepped Off the train, a rather short, cute, brown-eyed fellow rushed up to her and said, iiSay, Winnie, Iim glad to see that someone else from Emporia State came out? Winnie, rather set back a peg or two stammered, iiL-letis see, what is your name? I cant quite remember? itDon Mettlerf, answered Don, per- turbed by her lack of memory. W innie played innocent. and remarked, iiOh sure, I knew that? But the main thing is that they know each other now. HEN WINNIE came home, I asked her to tell me some of the highlights. She was excited and had time to tell me just a few things. FRONT ROW: Kinnamon, Fry, Denison, Cloth- ier, Brown, MIDDLE ROW: Anderson, McKinnis, Scanlan, Shields, Bonz, Reed, Hoffman. BACK itTo begin with, it. was the biggest thrill of my life? she began. Really, it was just wonderful! On the way out, thirty- five of us were on an old twenty-five pas- senger bus; and we were all surprised that we made the journey safely. How- ever, we did have a little trouble when, on the first night out, the bus driver de- cided it was impossible to get through an underpass. But we went on. The side of the bus scraped against the walls of the underpass. Little damage was done. ttEstes Park itself is a resort in the mountains for anyone who wishes to have a topnoteh vacation. Estes is really a miniature town consisting of two dor- mitories, many cabins, a post office, grocery store, main lodge, drug store, and a curio shop. uTHE MAIN speakers and leaders for the conference were E.

One night after the large group meeting, sev- eral of us decided to go for a long moon- light hike. After walking for a long time in the dark, we finally discovered that this was one of the few nights when the moon didnit come over the mountain. We had a difficult time climbing a rough, jagged mountain in the dark ; but we had fun coming down. ttAnother day, the only day it rained while we were out there, we went on a fifteen mile horseback ride to Bear Lake. However, we did not reach our destina- tion. Huge snow drifts and a swelled mountain stream blocked the trail forc- ing us to turn back. We had gone eleven 0f the fifteen miles; so it was still quite a ride. ttThese outings, along with the religi- ous meetings, talks, singing, and folk dancing, certainly made a vacation to be long remembered? concluded Winnie. 3!: 3i: 3k . NE OF THE highlights in the YW-YM program is the annual International 54 tions held a conference and made plans for the organizations to have special meetings with Em- poria ministers as guest speakers. Dinner. This dinner was given Novem- ber 18 at the city Y. W. C. A. for all stu- dents and townspeOple who are inter- ested in promoting fellowship and broth- erhood throughout the world. The room was decorated with foreign flags, globes, and posters from almost all European countries. THE KANSAS State Teachers College and the College of Emporia organiza- tions presented a musical program of a vocal solo, Violin solo, girlsi quartette, and a string trio. Rev. S. J. Williams of the Congregational Church was the main speaker. He spoke on ttInternational Peace Relations? The women on this campus at this par- ticular time are interested in the prob- lems of marriage before or after the war. Rev. Paul Barker, 0f the First Baptist Church and also of the college psychology department, has made a study of these problems. He talked at the regular Y. W. C.A. meeting on this subject. After he presented his main points, an Open dis- cussion was held during the rest of the meeting. 3!. d I THIS SAME type of program is featured every Spring in a series of marriage lectures, which is divided into four meet- ings+spiritual, economic, medical, and legal. . NE OF THE outstanding events of the first semester was the unusual parti- cipation of all campus groups in Religious Emphasis Week. The presidents of all Greek, Independent, religious, and social groups were called into the Y rooms for a special conference at Which each group planned for a meeting with an Emporia minister as guest speaker.

I cant think of a more pleas- ant sound ringing in my ears when I leave the campus as a graduate. Silent Joe is only a big bell in a stone tower, and until now it didnit mean much to me, except to signify that the Hornets had won another Victory; but for some reason, its clear, metallic tones seem to typify Emporia State. When for the first time I trudged up the main walk to the red-brick Adminis- tration Building in the winter twilight on January 16, 1940, I wondered how they would receive me-a New Yorker. But it didnt take long to find out. The hos- pitality of Kansas amazed me. The gen- iality and spirit of Emporia State pleased me, and before many days passed I felt that I was a full-fledged Hornet. NLY ONCE, for a brief moment during a Christmas vacation, did I doubt the worthwhileness of returning to Emporia State. VVheelil'lg, West Virginia, was a cold, dreary place in December 1940, and as I stood in the rain awaiting a ride on my cross-country hitch-hiking trip back to Emporia, I wondered if going to Em- poria State was worth all the trouble and inconvenience I was feeling. A small boy of perhaps ten or twelve approached me and seemed unmindful of the drizzle as he questioned me about my destination. He turned for a moment as. if to leave and suddenly pulled a dirty little hand from one pocket and held it out to me. IIHerefi he said, thereis twelve cents. That will pay your bus fare through Wheeling? I politely refused his offer, but that picture will forever remain in my mind, because from then on I never doubted that going by Harry Levinson to Emporia State was more than worth hitCh-hiking in rain and snow, or any other inconvenienceefor Emporia State, now, has an ever outstretched hand. HEN CAME the friendships, the parties, dates, classes, debate, Mu Ep, the Y, the Yis Owl, and The Bulletin. Each day brought a new eXperience, each class a wider knowledge, and each friend a better understanding of human beings. I cant add those things together. The figures are too big for my simple knowl- edge of mathematics, and if I could, it would be like finding the distance to the sunejust another big number. I can see the whole picture of Emporia State, and I can interpret it, in but one way iAchievement." Thereis husky Johnny McCormally, floating down from the clouds in a white parachute with his Marine buddies; Red N orwood, lying in some hell-hole on a Pa- cific island; Ralph Murphy in Africa; George Phillips in Texas, Van Withee in South Carolina, and dozens of others must be added to the picture. I have to laugh when I think of Richard Roahen jumping hurdles; I have to grit my teeth every time I write the headline announc- ing the death of another Hornet. And Emporia State is the knot that ties all of it together. THATS WHY I want Silent Joe to ring. On that last day before I go out to join the others in uniform, on the day of that last long parade down the main walk in dignified caps and gowns, every note from Silent Joe will remind me to keep the faith of Emporia State. H O R N E T S on 27w allalchwaac! HEN the roars 0f the outdoor crowds faded, and the men of the gridiron hung their togs in mothballs, bidding farewell to the football season, we turned again With great anticipation to the game of the hardwood, basketball. Hornet ath- letes began spending long hours in the gymnasium in preparation for the an- nual Winter basketball games. This sea- son marked Paul Kutninkis fifth year as basketball coach of the Emporia State Hornets, and since taking over the reins of the Hornet basketeers Kutnink has had Paul Kutnink during the 1942-43 season celebrat- ed his fifth year as head basketball coach of Em- poria State. He has. been connected with the in- stitution since 1928. After the loss of itVicii Trus- lcr and ttFrant, Welch, Kutnink became known as the man who stood alone at Emporia State. continued success throughout the years. This year shortage of adequate material and inroads made by' army calls dealt. blows to the prospects of the team throughout the 42-43 season. The sched- ule had to be condensed With emphasis laid on transportation and funds. De- creased enrollment cut the athletic allow- ance considerably. Even With these ob- 74 stacles Kutnink again came up With a team that scrapped all the way. They lost more games than they won but still they played the game. Six lettermen returned to Emporia State for the 1942-43 basketball season. Around these six-Wilbur Reeser, Willie Knox, William ttBudii Foster, Byron Graber, Gus Daum, and Raymond Sloan -Kutnink was to build his starting line- up. ILBUR REESER was one of the out- W standing high school basketball players in the state two seasons ago, and as a freshman came through in fine style as a regular on the Emporia State cage team. This year he continued his fine play, sparking the Hornet attack through- out the season. One of the ranking scor- ers in the conference, he continued the style of play that he displayed as a fresh- man. Hays fans are still talking about the 24 points he scored against the Tiger January 9. Willie Knox, a three letterman, is one of the most likeable men to ever don a Hornet suit. Standing 6 feet 2 inches in his stocking feet, ttBig Billii Would be the bane of many a potential high scorer. He is a consistent player Who racked up his share of points in each game. Knox is a senior and graduates in the spring. William ttBudii Foster, a two-year let- terman, has gained the distinction of be- ing one of the best defensive guards that the Hornets have had in some time. Never a high scorer but a scrapping player, he played the game to Win. This year he dis- played greater scoring ability, thus aiding the Hornet attack. by Seymour Lemeshow and Bob Donaldson YRON GRABER, a s0phomore, was one B of the mainstays of the Hornet five of this year. Aggressive and an excellent ball handler, Graber was used;repeated1y by Kutnink. Injuries hampered his play somewhat but he still participated in a majority of the games. Gus Daum, a big six-foot-three sopho- more, gave indications of developing into a really fine guard. Just as Daum was slated to step into a starting position the army called, and another fine player was lost to the Hornets. Raymond Sloan, a likeable s0phomore, was given his chance starting with the second semester. He produced, and the Hornets found a center who was a clever ball handler and an excellent shot. Sloan was a team player who became one of the teams most dependable rebound men. The cage squad was blest with many outstanding freshmen players who came to Emporia State with basketball honors of all sorts. They were Grant Clothier, Jack Schultz, Max Smiley, Weldon Banz, Joe Edwards, Melvin Leak, Dale Bowlin, Owen Wilson, Harry Wisdom, and Har- lan Wolf. Rounding out the squad were Lloyd Edwards and Paul Heinze, s0pho- mores; and J ack Long and Bernard Tay- lor, seniors. Long, who had served on Hornet squads for three years, had never made the starting five; in fact he had never lettered. This could be attributed to his height, 5 feet 6 inches. But during the past season he made the starting five and lettered easily while walking off with scoring honors repeatedly.

His present duties along with coaching the basketball team include posi- tions as football coach, track coach, and director of athletics. In fact, it would probably be impossible to enumerate his positions since itFrani' Welch and Vic Trusler were called to the army following the first semester. Kutnink is a glutton for work? though, as shown from the be- ginning of his career as a student at Em- poria State. While at Hornetville, he earned eleven letters-three in basketball, four in track, and four in football. He was on the all-conference team four years in football and on the all-state team three times. He competed in seven events as a track man. When Bill Hargiss, former Emporia State coach, picked his all-state, all-time Hornet football team, he chose Kutnink for a guard position. . N DECEMBER 14, Emporia State start- ed this seasonis basketball campaign with the Hornets taking the field against. the Blue and Gray 0f Rockhurst. The game from the beginning until the end was a see-saw affair. Max Smiley scored a free throw for Emporia to open the scoring. Reeser followed with a goal, but Rockhurst jumped back with two scores. From then until the end of the game neith- er team enjoyed a lead of more than five points, first one taking the lead and then the other. Willie Knox scored first in the second half and the Hornets held a lead for elev- en minutes in the half, when the Hawks took over 25-23. Two quick scares by Smiley and Reeser gave the Hornets the lead again a few moments later at 83-30. This they built up into a 37-85 lead until the final few seconds, when they began to stall for the gun. A long shot by Reeser as the gun went off rolled around inside William ctBudti Foster, regular guard who devel- oped into a really fine defensive player. 76 Byron Graber, taking that set shot he used while playing guard this season. the rim of the basket and dmpped out. Reeser was high point man for the eve- ning, garnering thirteen points. Max Smiley, Hornet center, was next with twelve points. The Hornets looked truly great for the most part, but a last-minute blunder and an overtime session gave Rockhurst a five-point margin and a Vic- tory of 45-40. Wichita University came to town Jan- uary 5. Coached by Melvin Binford and sparked by Keith Oliver and Gene Steinke, the Shockers upset the favored Hornets. Reeser slipped 15 points through the bas- ket to spark the Hornets, but superior conditioning and adept ball handling car- ried the Shockers through to a 42-35 Vic- tory. . N JANUARY 9, with Mr. Kutnink un- able to make the trip, Fran Welch took his charges to Hays to play a Tiger organization which was rated by many sports writers as the best in the confer- ence. Once again the Hornets showed fine form, but again they showed distinct signs of inconsistency. However, the game gave us a chance to check stock. iiSleepyii Reeser played iiall-stateii ball, sinking 24 points for the Hornets. Max Smiley, a freshman who reaches 6 feet 5 inches into the ozone, showed up well, as did a young man from Emporia High, Owen Wilson. Emporia lost the game to Hays by a final score of 60-54. WHAT DEFEAT at the hands of Hays was by no means the last defeat the Hor- nets have suffered. They came right back and drOpped a contest the following week. It was five days later than Jan- uary 9, in fact, it was January 14 that the defending champions from Pittsburg clashed with the Hornets 0n the hard- wood. Again the Hornet five didnit click. They shot but they missed. Forty min- utes later they had lost their fourth straight game, 43-36. The Shockers of Wichita University de- feated the Hornets a second time, Jan- uary 25, by a score of 45-30. Mid-semes- Raymond. Sloan broke into the starting five at mid-semester and made good.

To start the second semester Kutnink had twelve men left out of the original twenty. They were Knox, Foster, Reeser, Sloan, Wilson, 77 Long, Clothier, Wisdom, Taylor, Schultz, Davis, and Wolf. Out of these twelve the starting lineup against Wichita was Rees- er and Wilson, forwards; Sloan, center; Davis and Foster, guards. The Hornets were unable to hit their stride all evening, so they suffered their fifth straight de- feat. .N JANUARY 28 Emporia suffered its sixth straight loss to the Ravens of St. Benedictis. Again the Hornets were the Victims of a team that was hot and built up 'a lead that! Emporia State could not overcome. The final score was 45-38. The Ravens led 30-17 and held their sub- stantial lead through the second half. Wendell, St. Benedictis sophomore, was high-score man for the game with 17 points. Knox was high-point man for Emporia with 14 points. Reeser, usually a high scorer, was held to three field goals. It was the night of J anuary 30 that the Hornets garnered their first win of the 1942-43 season. They met the Camp For- sythe team from Ft. Riley. After the smoke had cleared away the Hornets were found to be ahead 46-38. It was a better conditioned Hornet team, geared to win, that handed the fans Victory that night. Emporiais next game was the February 3 tilt against Washburn of Topeka. It seemed that the Hornets had found them- selves in the Camp Forsythe game as they continued to win in administering a 49-42 defeat against the Ichabods. Willie Knox was high point man for the Hornets with 13 points. In all it was a surprising Vic- tory as the game was played at Topeka and there was still some doubt whether or not the Forsythe game meant better things to come for the Hornets or whether it was just one of those things. . UR NEXT game was the return clash with Fort Hays scheduled for Feb- ruary 5. The game started at 7 :15 with everyone hoping for that third straight win and revenge for the earlier 60-54 pasting handed the Hornets by Hays. It 78 was nip and tuck all the way with the Hornets leading by 6 points with three minutes to go. Something happened then for when one minute of playing time was left the score stood at 41 all. Our hopes were dashed to the ground thirty seconds later when Hays scored again. Final score 43-41, Hays! On February 8 we continued the policy of reengaging teams we had played earlier in the season. This time it was St. Bene- dictis. At Atchison they licked us 45-38 and the Ravens were determined to do it again. They iidoodii it, final score, 57-54, in as nip and tuck affair as we have ever seen. The same week the Hornets and the Southwestern Moundbuilders engaged in a scoring duel at Winfield with the Moundbuilders emerging with a 70-55 Victory. Emporia State took the lead early in the game and piled up a 17-7 advantage. But the Builders rallied and the score at the half was 39-28. The Hornets pulled up close during the second half, 40-45, but the Victorious Southwesterners pulled away to a comfortable margin toward the end of the game. Wilbur Reeser totaled 17 points and Jack Long placed 13 points, to pace the Emporia Staters. N SPITE of hardships, this i42-i43 sea- 1 son was an important season to the ath- letes and to the students, as well as to the sport itself. It was important because we are at war. It was important because we are now testing whether clean, whole- some competition can survive in a war- torn world; whether it can survive in a universal contest where fouling is permit- ted by the rules, where every bit of sportsmanship has been disregarded. What part does sports play in this war? What part does basketball play? And conversely, what part does the war play on basketball today? Whether to con- tinue or to discontinue athletics became an issue of controversy this year through- out the country. The President of the United States sent urgent messages to heads of various athletic associations re- questing that. above all, they maintain the spirit of competition, that they hang on to the spirit of competition, and that they hang? on to the spirit. of good, clean fun in a world Which is neither playing for fun nor playing clean. Hundreds of colleges and universities all over the nation strove to continue with the game of basketball as a major extra-curricular activity. The extra emphasis placed upon physical fit- ness has been an important factor in keeping up the athletic program. Basket- ball does contribute to the war effort be- cause it helps deveIOp men, builds up the endurance of the body, teaches the neces- sity of teamwork and timing, and teaches a boy to hustle all the way. In the game of tall outfi such as we have in the world today, we must impress upon the boys the necessity of continuous hustle and drive, especially when the going is tough. Bas- ketball is such a game. Sometimes peOple are inclined to be- lieve that a sport is only for the athletes. That is not so. Basketball is for the spec- tator. Yes, the game of the hardwood is an excellent morale builder. On these cold, wintry nights students can take time off from their physics and algebra and put aside newspaper headlines which spell death and destruction and go down to the highly illuminated Civic Auditorium and witness a couple hours, worth of enter- tainment. Sure, you can itrazzii the ball players and the officials if you want to. Thatis everybodyis privilege. You can come home after its all over and spend an hour or two around the old fireplace with a few of your chums, and drum up a little tihot" bull session. Its good to be a iiMonday morning quarterback? espe- cially if this activity can help calm nerves and relieve the general tensions which usually accompany a war. YES, BOTH our players and spectators went itall out? with the best they had in the basketball season; and going tiall outi, means a lot to our American democ- racy today.

Who was that babe you were dragging around the Grill last night?,, Oh-oh-itis started! In the other rooms chairs are scraped and books are drOpped as the fellows hasten in to hear the gory details. As Luke set- tles back, closes his book, and licks his lips in anticipation of the story he knows is eXpected of him; the other fellows drape themselves around the roorn-some on the bed, another straddles a chair and rests his chin on the books, another climbs to a perch on the table, and all set- tle down to the process of highertN edu- cation.

They can be and are held anywhere, anytime, and upon the least provocation. One may find a group of fellows itslinging the bullii in the Union, at the rotunda, in the res- taurants and student hangouts, or over a glass of beer in Newtis. The most ideal place, however, is the rooming house or fraternity house. The best time-any- time when one could be studying--is preferably late at night when others are trying to sleep. The tOpics-there are hundreds of them. Some, however, seem to have preference over others and tend to become standard tOpics at most bull sessions. The above description appears to indicate that girls take up all the time. Oh, heavens no! They occupy only about 90 per cent of the discussion time. Five minutes after Luke finishes with the girl he is now discussing, the tOpic may be far removed from females. It might be add- ed, though, that the conversation is sure to drift back to manis greatest worry. Marvin Bayless smiles shyly as his pals look at Wilmiais picture in The Sunflower. We have heard rumors that at this particular house, girls HE ARM chair generals have their hey- day at a bull session. They are busy at work capturing Rommel on the sands of Africa, Opening a second front in France or even invading Japan. The ttadmiralsii of V-7 may be devising new ways to combat Axis U-boats and the Air Corps Reserve is sure to eXpound on the work of the P-38 and the B-19. tiButXi breaks in Luke, ttshe ainit as fast as tcensoredlfi Religion is a favorite tOpic of the gab- .fest. The agnostics and the fundamenta- lists find eager ears as they develop their spiritual or anti-spiritual theories. Re- ligious discussion is usually carried on in a mood of tolerance and Open-minded knowledge concerning the various doc- trines. The modern Joe College tends to be liberal in his Views and respectful of the other fellowis belief. Although some discussions become quite hot, they are usually over principles rather than de- nominations. cc ND IiM going to get a date with her or my name ainit Lukelii play second fiddle to philosophy and psychology in bull sessions, but we have not been able to find out the boys phiIOSOphies yet. 81 If Congress could only have the benefit of college bull sessions, the world would undoubtedly be a better place in which to live. Most of its ills have, at one time or another, been solved; gin such meetings. Almost every plan from world federation to complete anarchy, from socialism to capitalism, and from liberalism to strict conservative policies has been presented, torn down, and rebuilt to suit the whims of the most profound political scientists. These young collegians enthusiastically eXpound pipe dreams of their new world. The neOphyte sociologist seeks to reor- ganize society. The psychologist remains cynical to any plan. The philos0pher ad- vises the boys how to get the most out of life. The fellow from the science hall plans our material world of the future. The economist desires to give everyone the necessities of life. a ND THEN there is that blond at the Adormfi intervenes Luke. Bull sessions are popular at frat houses, too. These Sigma. Tans have loosened their ties, lit their pipes, and settled themselves comfortably for a long, in- 82 ULL, however, is not limited to the Bmale sex. Although this writer has never been fortunate enough to attend one, it is reported from reliable sources that the girls of our campus have also in- vaded this realm of group discussion. A recent survey of sorority and rooming houses brought to light some interesting facts concerning these sessions. Just as the Thursday afternoon itSociety for Aid to Brok-en-down Bridge Playersii gathers to pass on the local news, so also do college girls gather to discuss or to cuss the af- fairs of most importance in their, lives. Apparently these discussions usually take place at night. One sorority main- tains that the ideal time for such a meet- ing is after a party. A rooming house reports that the girls find one necessary whenever a girl returns from a date. Combining the material gleaned from various sources, the story of a bullette session runs something like this. tUse imagination pleasei. tellectual discussion. At the moment, according to the photographer, corny jokes were being ex- changed and groaned over. The dormitory is a good place for a bullette session. Imagine-one hundred five girls to be catty about! These girls took a few minutes from a busy day to chat in one of the rooms.

One girl remarked that in this dress and at this time of night, girls are most likely to be catty. This report has not been verified. Would you believe it? The principal tOpic at bullette sessions is not men! Men might monopolize the greater percentage of feminine thoughts, but. one could never get them to admit it. Page Mr. Freud, please. By careful analysis one can dis- cover a symptom of repression. No, girls dont talk about men. They talk about the predatory females who beat. their time. These diabolical feline discussions are identical to the primitive practice of stick- ing pins into a wax image. The exact con- tents of these discussions will forever re- main a female secret. No man who values his life could ever risk being within ear- shot of these mid-night Witching rites. Rumor has it that the electric lights turn blue, even as did the flickering lamp flames of old when evil spirits danced. And what. is this? Is there some possi- bility of similarity after all? Girls are not without their military strategists. The prospective WAACS and WAVES fight this global struggle from their rooms. Paul V. McNutt would be happy to know that the girls sympathize with him on his manpower problems; Reli- gion, too, must run the gauntlet of these amazons from time to time. T IS interesting to note that all sources maintain the girls give very little time to political and social issues. Dare we have the audacity to conclude that girls have some trust in men after all? To leave these important world issues exclu- sively to the masculine sex truly appears to be a confession of faith. Mr. Freud, these females are unfathomable! So we travel on and leave the bull ses- sions. Are they foolish? Well, perhaps, but they lead to a spirit of good fellow- ship and present the other land perhaps truerl side of life. The student who goes through college without at least one good bull session does not deserve his degree.

The center of activity is the big, red-brick schoolhouse with its 85 class andoffice rooms and Albert Tay- lor Hall, the auditorium for convocations and fine entertainments. Thousands of students have rushed past those sturdy, white pillars at the entrance of the Ad- ministration Building on their way to classes. Here on the broad square of side- walk have stood crowds of students wav- ing banners and torches in the heat of a political campaign ; here have been spirit- ed pep rallies and scenes of terror when big, burly K-Club men whacked unfortu- nate freshmen who disobeyed the dictates of upperclassmen. 86 --:';+'.-:v:':-.

Kellogg Library has served stu- dents for forty years, having been erected in 1903. . NE OF the newer buildings is the Stu- dent Union Building which was erect- ed as a memorial to Emporia State men who served in World War I. The Student Union is the recreation center of the cam- pus where all-school parties and formal dances are held in the beautiful ballroom. In the Union basement are recreation and lounging rooms; a bar Where soft drinks, candy, and ice-cream are sold; and the Coffee Shep Where students eat their meals. For musicians is the Music Hall, Which is said to be fireproof and soundproof. Anyone Who has walked past this build- ing a few times would Challenge the au- thenticity 0f the claim for its soundproof- ness. But maybe the Windows should be shut.

J ust as you are re- laxing in that drowsy, day-dreamy, semi- conscious state that precedes sleep, you are rudely brought back to reality by an angry accusation. iiSo! Even you have sold Your soul to the devil? You feel as conscience stricken as a Puritan maid hurrying home after our- few, as you gaze guiltily into the angry, shocked face of the student grader. You make a feeble attempt to stem the voluble tide of wrath that he is pouring upon you. You wish for the isolation of an ostrich. You Wish you were in Africa, chasing Rommel. Or anywhere. Anywhere but here, listening to a friend scathingly in- form you how much you have been low- ered in his estimation. Then you grow defiant and resentful. What right has he to complain? Its not ti-You are in your room again, ready to study. Your body feels tense, your arms have a tingling, going to sleep feeling, as if little bugs were squirm- ing around inside of you-for the first time youire as if you had studied the book. Heck, studying an old test for a few hours still wont give youan even break with the others. That old boy is just afraid that youill get as good a grade as he does. So you argue self-justifyingly with him, and finally blurt out, iiGo to hellVi and after a few more heated words, watch him stomp contemptuously away. You sit there and smoke disconsolately, no longer even passively interested in cramming. Idly you attempt to blow smoke rings, but cant even succeed at that. Maybe its true. Maybe you have sold your soul to the devil after all. EEPERS! You look at the clock and find J you have only five minutes till test time. With one last, acrid puff on your Lucky that makes you wish that it, as well as iiLucky Strike Green? had gone to war, youire off to the slaughter. Finally the test is over.

Man, they feel as good as the feather bed in Momis guest- room. iiHi, Joe, taking a siestaYii ask four dif- ferent peOple. itYep, no time for anything else? you answer patiently.

And When youire prac- tically asleep, its ancient history. OUR ROOMMATE wakens you. Six Y oiclock and one more night to study. But surely not even the president would eXpect a guy to study on an empty stom- ach.

As you get ready to enjoy your hamburgers in come two carn- pus free-thinkers. Before you know it, youire in a virulent argument about 96 This is a good way to study for exams. After all, didnit the psychology text say that we forget less while sleeping than while awake? whether or not girls should wear slacks to classes. Youire very sure the girls wili abide by the result of the argument, so you sputter on as well as anybody. As you pause for breath, one of your radical friends shouts, iiBut no one can prove When brain ca- pacity is reachedlii You are thoroughly convinced that you are going nuts, but youill make one last try.

Your arms have a tingling, go'ing- to-sleep feeling, as if little bugs were squirming around inside you. As you sit at the table, chin in hand, you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror. For the first time youire glad girls canit stay in your house. Youid never get another date if they ever saw you looking like this. UST AS youire stifling a soul-shaking Jyawn, one of your housemates bounds into the room, the light of an evil purpose glinting in his eye. You attempt to steel yourself against his wily persuasions, as scenes from previous escapades flash into your mind. He leans upon your table and looks directly into your eyes. tiAre you a coward? he asks dramati- cally. ttWho, me?

Ghostly Prooiectins DIDNiT eXpect to meet anyone at 12 I oiclock mid-night in the dark fourth floor corridor of the Ad Building. That is why I hesitated when I heard Voices coming from the speech laboratory. After I had smoothed my hair and regained my breath-c1imbing four flights of stairs collapses me like a wounded accordion-I made a desperate effort to move myself around the corner to the door of the cos- tume room. Feeling a sudden twinge of pain in my left foot, I cautiously reached down in the dark to investigate the cause of my anguish and found that my right foot was stepping on it. I offer this as a personal testimonial of the effects of stagecraft, the class in which all surviv- ors are awarded a paltry one hour of credit. The sudden pain recovered my wits, and I remembered what I had come for, a needle and thread. One of the huge 102 sandbags which counterbalanced a heavy set piece slung from the grid down on the stage, had ripped a little at the seam, spilling an irregular trickle of sand from the fly gallery to the stage floor. If too much sand was lost, the scenery---two weeks of work and thirty dollarsi worth of muslin, lumber, and paint-would crash from a height of about forty feet. OULD I rather face some kind of demon tonight or Mr. Porter in the morning? I untangled my feet and edged toward the speech laboratory. Listening closely, I tried to make words and sen- tences out of the indistinct voices. The peculiar and consistent pronunciation of iiaii and iicii and the characteristic syn- taX of the sentences convinced me that. two peOple were talking in Latin. iiRuth Chitty and Margaret Lunt are doing their evening calisthenicslii I thought. My fears banished, I took two poorly coordinated steps and threw the speech lab door Open roughly. ttPersons who speak Latin are cultured and have good figures. I have nothing to fear? I told myself. Did you ever push the up button on an elevator and start down? That is how I felt when I saw what were the whois in the speech lab. Two skeletons Charley and Fritz, from Dr. Turneris glass case in the anatomy and physiology classroom were mixing something in the cadaver tank which Dr. Pflaum hOpes to use for more than ungraded tests some day. Of course I realized suddenly that skeletons must talk in Latin, since Latin is a dead language! itThis sure is a fine tank for bathing, or canning, or deveIOping film. I won- der what its really for," said Fritz. . . . . oi leddy 50ene4 HARLEY indicated by inward rotation C of the scapula that such a fine tank made him feel glad all over. I would have explained that a cadaver tank is used by medical men for dissecting corpses, but I wasnit in the mood for a morbid discus- s10n. In the fall of i112 I had sat near Fritz and Charley in class, and had become quite fond of them, although I did not get to know them very well. I said, by way of introducing myself, iiWhy dont you boys use the dark room in the basement? It has complete equipment for develOping film? iiNo-o-olii shivered Fritz. iiToo ghost- lylii He invited me to come in by touch- ing his mandible to his manubrium. iiWe donit care if these pictures do have a few flaws. Taking pictures is only an avoca- tion with uin he explained. iiOh. Then what is your vocation? iiRolling bones? ' HARLEY, having finished the film, turned on the lights. Then I noticed the boys peculiar camera. It was made from a skull, a zygomatic process, five vertebrae, and various other odd bones. iiSome camera you have there? I kid- ded them. iiThis is a wonderful camera? said Charley. iiIt can photograph around curvesfi iiAh, now! Iid like to see one of those pictures? iiAll right. Notice this snapshot of Dean MacFarlaneXi iiWhy, only his head and feet are therefi tiYes, thatis what I mean. With this camera we can even take pictures of how by Velna Stout you looked in the past or how youill look in the futuree-one or ten or even fifty years from now. My favorite snapshot is this one taken of Hitler in June 1944.,i iiIim sorry, but this looks to me like a blank page? iiYes, thatis what I mean? insisted Charley. I WAS AFRAID Charley might get peeved if. I kidded him anymore about his cam- era, so I changed the subject. iiYou fel- lows never saw a moving picture, did you?b iiWhat? Listen, we make movies. We notice everything that goes on around the campus and make candid shots of the best scenes. Like to look at our collection? Fritz pointed to a shadow on the wall and asked me to sit down. m---.-iI I tunx. 103 The first section of the movie had a very ingenious title; it was called ttThe Majors and the Minors? This reel con- tained some remarkable pictures of two would-be suicides, a speech student and an art student whom the skeletons had met as they were about to enter the Ad Building in the usual manner. Each skeleton frequently used the dead-end doors on the fourth floor which are di- rectly opposite each other, one door open- ing out from the northeast corner of Room 406 and the other opening from the northwest corner of Room 417. The roof of Albert Taylor Hall extending only three stories high, these fourth floor doors are directly Visible to each other. Fritz learned later that the poor tempera- mentalists had decided to take their own lives because they could not bear to hear any more iiLittle Moronii stories. SIMULTANEOUSLY actress and artist Opened the opposing doors and breathed deeply, preparing to jump. Each noticed the other, the art student spoke, and each closed the door. After a short wait the routine was repeated and then again re- peated. The third time the artist said, not wishing to admit that he was at all embarrassed, itYou may wonder why I keep doing this. Well, I got a job in a grocery store downtown this afternoon, 104 and the boss told me Id be partly out- doors and partly in. Iim just trying to figure out what PM do if someone shuts the door on me? Only a few of the pictures had been made recently. One showed a couple of girls, music majors, going to the senior dinner. Both had just finished practice ing their instruments on the third floor of the Music Hall-one played a trom- bone, the other piano. As they left, cart rying their lunches in paper sacks, they remembered the freight elevator and, since no one was near, decided to ride. The swift descent to the first floor was exhilaratingethat is, it would have been if the elevator had stopped. Instead it started up again. At second the elevator paused, but as the girls sprang forward to Open the cage door it rose rapidly. And up and down the girls rode. Occasionally the elevator hesitated, for only a second, and then moved again. HREE hours later at 9:30, the elevator finally stopped on the third floor. But when, at last, the girls got to the senior dinner, they found that the last roll had been eaten an hour and a half before. However, they were not very hungry, not even for the bananas they had brought along to supplement the usual, skimpy desserts. A RED STRIP of curb marked tiNo Park- ingii flashed suddenly into View. As the curb stopped flickering, a black Buick automobile rounded the Ad Building at. high speed and came to a sudden stOp in the forbidden rectangle. Seeing this pic- ture should have brought to my mind needles and thread and speeded me on my errand for Mr. Porter. Unfortunately it did not. I watched the red rectangle widen and lengthen until it became a large, high- ceilinged classroom. At one end of the room stood a man dressed in a pinafore and hair net. He had a spoon in each hand and walked back and forth between two kettles, stirring them alternately. A close-up showed two packages of Rit on a nearby desk. C. F. Gladfelter was dyeing eggs! That is why the egg yolks which he displays at Science Open House are either bright green or red. They are rit- ted. I DID NOT understand the next episode until about a week later. At that time I was Visiting a student. friend of mine who lives in the Union Building. In one corner of her room was a peculiar look- ing mound carefully covered with a bright scarf and topped with an incense burner. From one end of the pile came a two-inch rOpe, which was chained to the radiator. The ttpilefi my friend eX- plained, was a rOpe fire escape. Then I understood what I had seen in the Charlie and Fritz movie. The picture showed the second floor oc- cupants of the Student Union holding a fire drill. Many well-known college in- structors were there, and one and all par- ticipated. Each drOpped a rope from her bedroom window, and, holding her val- uables in her teeth, slid to the ground. The first drill was not successful. One teacher could not locate herself when the fire drill bell sounded and another spent too much time slinging all her diction- aries to safety; so she was only half way down the rope when count ten was pro- nounced. The second attempt was also a failure. This time one of the teachers fell. She remembered a joke which she had told her classes every year since 1922 and laughed so hard that she lost her grip. FTER THE fire drill one teacher rode a lawnmower up the walk from the Li- brary Annex basement and began to cut the grass on the Student Union lawn. This riding lawnmower was specially built. In line it was long and low like a racing car. It was equipped with a radio, a folding desk, tan improvised barl a tele- scope, electric lights, and a typewriter on which the Operator, who was a commerce teacher, practiced incessantly. On the left hand, as one sat on the satin uphol- stered seat, was a dandelion digger. The driver had only to lift a lever and sharp, steel jaws bit the offending plant out of the ground, shook the dirt off the roots, and deposited the weed carefully in a compartment under the seat. I counted three boxes in this lower compartment. They were labeled ttExtra Fancy? ttChoice? and ttStandard," as required by the Federal Food and Drug Act, Section 3, Paragraph 2. That one lever could perform all of these duties amazed me. So I asked, tiHow does the steel jaw know where each dandelion should be dropped ?ii S I UTTERED the last word I heard something drOp-esomething down- stairs. And no dandelion, no matter how full of' iron, ever sounded like that! At once I knew what the sound meant but hOped desperately that I was wrong. I shouted goodbye to Fritz and Charley as I leaped through the door and ran down the hall. When I reached the stairs I saw my skeleton friends, with their camera, enter the east side door of Albert Taylor Hall. I knew that those skeletons had purposely delayed me in order to add a few more pictures to their collection. 105 IIT. Make AAen Free" Mary Kay Horan CCTO MAKE Men Freei, was the title of a series of thirteen radio shows sponsored by the speech and music de- partments for the Kansas War Bond Commission. Nine Kansas broadcasting stations carried the program every Thursday eve- ning beginning December 10. Emporia State was the first educational institution to have charge of a war drive program series. Original scripts were used on all pro- grams, and these were written by R. Rus- sell Porter, associate professor of speech, and Dr. F. L. Gilson, head of the depart- ment of speech. A11 scripts were patriotic in nature and written to emphasize re- gional and state appeal. Orien Dalley, music instructor, arranged all the musi- cal background. Each program was one half hour in length. Governor Andrew Schoeppel introduced the first radio show in the series entitled itThe World at War-In Review? Mr. Porter adapted the script from the bond 106 drive program presented here last spring. Headlines was the theme, and each told a story all its own in the development of the present war situation. ttLidice, Kansas? the second radio show, brought in. closer contact the tragic incident of that little Czechoslovakian Village destroyed by the Germans last June 10. Lebo, Kansas, with its five hun- dred inhabitants is quite similar to Lidice, Czechoslovakia. Mr. Porter received per- mission to use Lebo as a setting for his script, and its citizens as characters for the second war bond series. Mayor W il- liam McCandless 0f Lebo did the commer- cials for the United States Treasury De- partment. HRISTMAS EVE was the setting for the third in the series of radio shows. The story, original by Mr. Porter, por- trayed a Polish-Jewish husband and his wife, who was an expectant mother, as refugees in war torn Poland in 1941. The plot was closely parallel to that of The Nativity. Symphonic music interpretation of democracy constituted the fourth i"Po Make Men Freeii radio program. Presi- dent Butcher delivered the war bond mes- sage. itTwo Survived? a highly dramatic story by Guy Pierce Jones, told of the ad- ventures and sufferings endured by two men adrift in an open boat for seventy days after their ship had been torpedoed. Mr. Porter adapted this script for his fifth radio show. Kenneth Porteris iSong 0f the High Plains? which is a historical poem of Kansas, was used in the next radio series. Kenneth Porter is professor of history at Vassar and a brother of Russell Porter. The Madrigalians, a vocal group of se- lected voices, furnished the musical back- ground. Other themes which were chosen and adapted for radio shows are tiAmericans Have Said? written by Dr. Gilson; Abraham Lincoln? an original composi- tions program, ttWheatfi and iiVictoryK" Addington, Dora May . . . .

You may not think it looks like much now, but we will wager that youill spend many happy moments with it during the next fifty years. And your grandchil- dren will be amazed to see how important you were when you went to college- they will probably be amazed to see that you went to col- lege. We. apologize here and now for the errors in issues one, two, and three. But when youire fat and forty and have lived and made a living for twenty more years, youill see that it really wasnit so important that your name was misspelled. You might even take into consideration the fact that it might have been spelled better if we could read what you call writing. This is goodbye after two years-seven issueseof The Sunflower. Next year an- other editor will carry on tproviding photographic equipment can be pur- chasedi. Be glad you can have an annual under pres- ent conditions-and donit be the little person Who spends the first day the yearbook comes out hunting mistakes.

EPPINK ISSUED THREE TIMES DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR AS THE OFFICIAL YEARBOOK OF THE STUDENTS The Kansas State Teachers College Emporia, Kansas We" . . Emporia IS F riendly by PVT. JOE ROSS The hall between the water fountain and the Deans bulletin board is so full of cadets between classes that students are surprised to see familiar faces. There've Been SOME Changes Made a OLUMN, half right? the sergeant shouted, so I rolled out of bed and started picking them up and putting them down. For a moment, I didnt think it strange that I should be marching in my pajamas, and then I realized that it wasnt Bob Fisher giving the commands in military science class, but somebody marching outside my window. Who on earth would be marching at the ungodly hour of 10 a. m. on Sunday was beyond me, but there they were, the long-await- ed 500 army aviation cadets, tramping up Merchant Street and onto the old athletic field. Seeing so many men in uniform in Em- poria was strange indeed, but stranger things were yet to come. Upon only a few days notice, we began preparing for 140 by HARRY LEVINSON cadets. Before we could realize what happened the Student Union became a cadet mess hall. Morse Hall, the Annex, the Tri Sig sorority house, and a boarding club and private homes were turned into soldierst barracks. What had been the comforable offices of the deans were now the headquarters of the Air Crew Detach- ment Base, Emporia, Kansas, Captain Matthew Shevlin, commanding. The sudden changes were readily evi- dent as haste-mad department heads set about arranging new schedules and classes. Fourth floor classes, much to the happiness of all concerned, were moved to other floors. Once changed, the schedule of classes for 500 men was changed again and again as new orders came in and new classifications were constructed. 0 PUT down on paper what 500 cadets think of Emporia is about the same as to tell in a few words what Americans think of their president. There are just about 500 different ideas. Probably the first opinions formed were not concerned with Emporia at all, except that it must be an improvement over Sheppard Field, Texas. When the first 350 soldiers filed in from the six cars of their MKT troop train in Empo- ria on February 29, they were, with a few exceptions, above all glad to be any place away from Texas. Emporia had a few touchdowns on its side before the game started. IT WAS 3:30 oiclock on Sunday morning when the contingent from Sheppard Field arrived and their Kansas life started with a surprise when they saw curious Emporians standing in the street waiting to see what the cadets looked like. Later MEANWHILE, wasting no time, Empo- poria descended on the men with all its well-known hospitality. Men who had seen no women for a month or more at Sheppard Field, Texas, suddenly found themselves mobbed as Emporia Stateis coeds, whose numbers exceeded those of their male counterparts by a ratio of four to one, decided this was a Golden Oppor- tunity not to be missed. With pay-day once a month and few expenses to take their money, the cadets soon turned iiNormalville" into a boom town. The Grillis juke box has rarely been silent since their coming and mer- chants, who had been depending on stu- dent business, and worrying about the de- creasing enrollment, found in the newly- arrived cadets a stimulus to business which they had not seen since pre-depres- sion days. Almost overnight the sale of cosmetics doubled. No longer did the college wom- an come to her classes with a freshly- washed face. Now she took the trouble to powder her nose and plaster the lip- in the day, they were amazed and pleased when residents showed them around town, when others asked them to dinner, and when coeds smiled at them. For the last month, to be treated like a fellow hu- man had been a memory of the past . . . to speak to a girl, a dream of the future. Perhaps the biggest surprise of all, though, was that the Kansans they met were interested in the places from which the cadets had come. These Kansans could discuss different sections of the country without raising their voices or getting excited at all. tFor instance, I cant imagine imagine a Californian lis- tening to a person describe another state without his temperatu're climbing. To many of the cadets, it is quite exhilarat- ing to carry on an intelligent conversa- tion with someone from another state without starting an argument as to why California or Texas is the only state in the world fit to live inJ stick on her lips with a patience and care belieing her collegiate existence. No longer did she gripe about not being able to wear slacks as much as she pleased, but she wore her prettiest dresses and skirts and forgot almost completely about her slacks. Men from distant states brought new spice to conversations, new experiences to Kansans who had been not far distant from their own homes. The soft drawls of the Texans and the men from Louisi- ana and the quick speech of the Califor- nians colored conversations the campus over and whenever the men were off duty, they made themselves at home on porch swings, or over a coke and carried on where they had left off at the last spare moment. IRST among the century-old traditions to fall was that of no smoking on the campus. Men to whom smoking had be- come a form of relaxation were not prone to stOp now, so they smoked and students watched with their mouths Open. But 141 FTER a week or two the cadets came down to earth and found that Em- poria was a quiet little city with a Grill, a bowling alley, two school libraries, five sororities, Frances Ross, dances in the Student Union, USO parties in the Civic stadium, two rivers, a Sunset Inn, a skat- ing rink, spring term picnics, and many more coeds than eds. In addition, they learned how to stand with their shoulders back and their chins in, how to keep their shoes shined while marching in mud, and how to live in houses designed for women. They found their officers strict and thorough in their instructions in discipline, but extremely liberal to the cadets who learned these lessons and followed orders. .N THE first day of training, cadets could sense a complete change in their army life. When a sick call was organized, it was arranged .so that it. was convenient for cadets to report illnesses and obtain treatment. At Sheppard Field, it had been arranged so as to discourage anyone not requiring an ambulance from reporting an illness. When it was cold they were allowed to wear their over- coats; when the field was muddy, they drilled on the walks; When a part of their program was not ready as scheduled, they did not wait in line for hours but re- turned to their quarters. In everything, it seemed, the officers tried to arrange things with the comfort and training of the cadets in mind. This difference in attitude probably surprised the cadets from Sheppard Field more than anything else. Finally, now that the cadets have had time to find out what Emporia is really like, their final Opinion is quite unani- mous that they could not have been sent to a friendlier place . . . and they really believe that. they were kind and considerate, leaving no tell-tale butts behind and smoking only outside of the buildings. Army drill brought reviews and pa- rades and each afternoon the commands of the sergeants were mingled with the music of the band as the men passed in review or stood retreat. We watched and admired their precision. We were proud of our new students. College slang, long known for its uniqueness, became a new language as army jargon found its way into collegiate bull sessions. Cadet collegians quickly found new names for college buildings. Kellogg Library became ttThe Rattrapii or tiAgony Hall? Morse Hall was christ- ened ttGoon House on the Lagoonii and similar titles were bestowed on other col- lege halls of learning. Stranger than all was to see men who had rules more strict than the much- abused Blue Rules. Women who had known only the inconvenience of dashing home before the door was locked were 142 now much surprised to find themselves standing at their doors with half an hour of freedom remaining and a figure in G-l khaki dashing away at full speed to be in before a 9:30 bed check. ALTHOUGH their classes were entirely separate from those of the students they, too, found the rotunda in the Ad- ministration Building a good place to meet and between classes they found ample time to make dates, find new ac- quaintances and few spare moments in the hallowed meeting place of Emporia Staters. As large and heterogeneous as the de- tachment was, it was not strange that the Californians should have their differences with the Texans, and those from Michigan with those from Utah, but typical of the adjustments both we and they made was the sign which appeared in The Grill: iiCalifornia oranges 7 V20 each; Texas oranges 4 for 300; Louisiana oranges 2 for 1503i pi Kappa flelfa Spandau glecZian of Wall. ganci Queen Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary forensic fra- ternity, sponsored the election of a War Bond Queen; Queen in connection with the National Collegiate Press Association contest.

In addition, freshman boys were not allowed to date freshman girls. Couples caught Violating this rule were punished by having to per- form between the halves of one of the Hornet football games. At the beginning of the fall semester fewer K Club members were in school than ever before in the history of the or- ganization, and with the calling of the re- servists throughout the first and second semester, the organization has dwindled until ten members of the organization are all that are remaining in school.

The club sponsors the sale of the fresh- man caps each fall, and enforces the tra- ditional freshman rules. However, this year because of the shortage of material, the K Club abandoned the usual cap initiation and substituted the wearing of green ribbons instead. The K Club also revised the old freshman initiation rules and brought forth several new restric- tions that affected both freshman boys and girls, and helped to add more color to the annual freshman initiation.

An increased c00perati0n was evident among the fraternities this year as they met the problems caused by the war. One example was the allowing the Phi Deltis to pledge five men at mid-semester so that they would be able to keep their house Open. All members were pledged to maintain the existence of the four fra- ternities throughout the year, if at all possible.

Our annual fall hayrack ride was one of the outstanding events of the season. Other highlights of the season were the Homecoming buffet supper, the annual pledge party held Friday, November 18, in the Grill Room at the Broadview H0- tel, the snowball party, known as ttAlpha- Delta Holiday Inn? held in collaboration with the Delta Sigs, the Spring Formal, and the Mothers Day Tea.

Guests chose their favorite kind of punch from realis- tic menu cards of green and gold; and the scores for the card games were kept in tally cards shaped like dice. Since every- one likes a carnival, our rushees were in- vited to a iiGirly-GO-Round" during the week. In characteristic carnival style, groups of girls went from game to game; and the winner of each game received a prize. Hot dogs and lemonade were served as refreshments. At our dance, iiCinderellais Ball? programs were in the form of slippers; and little gold shoes were given as favors to each guest. At the close of rush week Nadine Stark, Mary June Griffith, Charlene Nichols, Arlene Smith, and Katherine Gould were initiated into pledgeship and were guests at a dinner given in their honor. 156 OT long after the beginning of school, Alpha Sigma Tau started having open house for the various menis organ- izations of K. S. T. C. At open house given for Mu Epsilon Nu, menis inde- pendent organization, Leonard Barring- ton read an original poem dedicated to Alpha Sigma Tau and presented the girls with a box of candy. .UR Homecoming decorations were not so elaborate as usual this year since no competitive prizes were offered by the college. All the work of decorating our house was done by the girls themselves. Patricia Elliott, the artist of our group, painted a huge mural representing a foot- ball game between the Hornets and Southwestern. We placed this mural on the outside of our front porch. A iiWel- come Gradii sign and streamers of orange and black crepe paper completed the dec- orations. Even though transportation was diffi- cult to find this year, many alumnae at- tended our buffet luncheon 0n the Satur- day afternoon of Homecoming. After luncheon we all- gathered in the chapter room and sang sorority s0ngs-songs which meant a great deal to us and brought back many happy memories to our alumnae. HELD in Wilson Park, our barbeque, al- ways a great success, was especially good this year. We girls of Alpha Sigma Tau maintain that no one can surpass the culinary art of Mrs. Whitaker, our cook.

After the dinner, Louise Hux- man entertained with two vocal solos. Mrs. Franklin Ace, Virginia Zajic, and Charlene Nichols, members of the soror- ity, each told what Alpha Tau meant to them as an alumna, an active, and a pledge. The ever impressive candle- lighting service was held after the pro- gram. At our annual pledge party, the girls LOWER ing one little pledge from studying!

Colorful gourds, gay blankets, and pottery decorated the Student Union Ballroom in Spanish style. During the evening the girls and their guests swayed. in a conga t0 the pulsing rhythm of a tom- tom as the Varsity Band played a gay Spanish tune. Favors of crystal ash trays were given to the ffsenors." EFORE Christmas vacation an informal Christmas party was given in the chapter house. During the evening, the girls and their guests danced and played cards. Refreshments of sandwiches and coffee were served. Just before the guests departed all the lights except the Christmas tree lights were dimmed and everyone sang the 01d, familiar Christmas carols. Our formal dinner, followed by a gift exchange, was held on December 21. Gifts were piled high beneath the tree and squeals of delight filled the room as the girls found ffjust what they wanted" in the gaily beribboned packages. Our gift to the chapter house this year was a record cabinet for our large collection of records. ECOND semester pledges were Mildred Nelson, Nell Brown, Augusta Dickson, and Vivian Lee Barger. Our alumnae members, as they do every year, gave a lovely dinner in honor of the girls of Alpha Sigma Tau in the home of Dr. and Mrs. C. E. Partridge. Decorations were appropriate for a true Valentines Day with lovely centerpieces of white and red sweet peas decorating the tables. After the dinner, cards were played, and scores were kept in clever valentine tally cards. At the close of the evening, prizes were given to those girls having the highest and the lowest scores. As usual all of our girls took an im- portant part in the activities of the school this year. In the student election at the beginning of the year, Elva Lee James was elected junior class representative to the Student Council and later became sec- retary of. the Council.

C. in ffWhois Who Among Students in American Col- leges and Universities? WITH the first perfect rating ever made by any chapter of Alpha Sig- ma Tau, the Emporia State Iota Chapter of the Alpha Sigma Tau sorority this year won the sororityis National Efficiency Award for the second successive year. The award is based on ten different points including a monthly presidentis re-' port to the central office, a quarterly edi- toris report, and an original sorority song. The award received was for the last year when the chapter was headed by Mavis Richardson. Irene Stevenson was president the first year the award was won. Alpha Sigma Tau was founded Novem- ber 7, 1899, at Ypsilanti State Teachers College, Ypsilanti, Michigan. Iota Chap- ter had its beginning in a local organiza- tion, Delta Gamma Rho sorority. The first regular meeting was held in the home of Misses Ethel, Mabel, and Flor- ence Cross, October 28, 1920. Misses Jane K. Atwood and Martha Bates Hat- field were the first sponsors. Mrs. J. C. De Voss, Mrs. F. M. Arnold, Mrs. Henry Ganse, and Mrs. Dean Wooster were the first patronesses. Patricia Elliott Kathryn Gould Mary J.

With school had come rush season, foot- ball games, and Homecoming. After rush week we were happy to add the names of these pledges to our roll: Isabel Hortenstein, Betty Merritt, Louise W eir, and Barbara J ameseall from Em- poria; Melba Patterson, Junction City; Joan Holmes, Garnett; Betty Kidd, Con- way Springs; and Dorothy Bulmer, Mich- igan Valley. A week before school started, all the Delta Sig girls dressed in old slacks and shorts, tied up their hair in bandanas, and cleaned the house from attic to base- ment. Furniture was re-painted, wood- work washed, floors waxed, windows washedethere wasnit a corner that hadnit been touched by the mOp, broom, or paint brush. Then the girls began un- packing their trunks and bags. Each one had something new for her room. Bright- 160 colored drapes, new bed spreads, and lampshades were some of the things which were added to the rooms. The big- gest thrill that we received this fall, though, was having the outside of our house painted. Epsilon Chapter has received much valuable help and information through President Ida Jacks and Treasurer Mary Rawie, who attended conclave at Denver last summer. THE first semester passed rapidly, but not uneventfully. So much had hap- pened this first part that it takes several minutes just to sit down and decide what was the most important, and what we en- joyed doing the most. Following the holi- day season, we were back at our desks once more ready to put in those last long hours of hard study before the semester closed. There was a bit of something else, too, hovering about the Delta Sig house. It seems that not only Santa played his part well during the Yuletide season, but also Dan Cupid. And some- times it was more than a fraternity pin or a diamondeoften a wedding ring adorned her finger too. UT now down to the real work of the year thus far. The thing that we place at the tOp naturally is Red Cross work and activities. Of course the high- light to us in Red Cross work is the am- bulance that Delta Sigma Epsilon is buy- ing nationally. To raise our share of the money, we thumbed through our old UPPER RIGHT: Ambitious Delta Sigs and their Sponsor, Miss Helen Clark, sew for the. Red Cross.

From this we collected part of the money and for the rest, the girls made personal contribu- tions. HERE thereis work, though, thereis always some play. The main pride of our social activities was the Christmas party. This time we did something out of the ordinary 0n the campus. We and an- other sorority, Alpha Sigma Alpha, had tertained and cared for by sorority sisters.

Especially did we have a good time in planning for it. The theme was iiAlpha-Delta Holiday Inn." We copied the name and plans more or . less from the movie iiHoliday Inn? At the edge of the ballroom floor were round tables at which couples sat and chatted with their friends. Boys in white jackets brought cokes t0 the couples as they or- dered them; and later in the evening, a supper was served. The pledges gave a clever party this year, too. The theme was 2Ye Old Pirates Denfi with all the decorations carried out in accordance. Over the door, a ghastly green light played upon a skull and cross- bones. Once inside, candles furnished the light, and 01d iron treasure chests re- vealed glittering jewelry, gold and silver coins, and other pirate lore. During the course of the evening, each pledge was in- troduced. SECOND semester found us with six new pledges: Lesley Dasura, Kansas City; Gladys Gilger, Montezuma; Barbara Giles, Larned; Jeanne Irwin, Neosho Rapids; Rosalie Robison, Gridley; and Maxine Marx, Emporia. Intramurals played an important role in our sorority activities. Our bowling team, Marguerite Blazier, Betty Kidd, and Melba Patterson, had a perfect record with no defeats. Studies and school activities have kept us so busy that this semester has passed almost. without our noticing it. For three of the girls, it signifies the completion of four years and graduation, while for the remaining group it means a promotion. The last few weeks will be packed with cramming for finals, parties, and good- byes which signify the passing. of another happy year for Delta Sigma Epsilon. Delta Sigma Epsilon became a mem- ber of the Association of Educational Sororities in 1917, the fourth sorority to be admitted. Alpha chapter was organ- ized at. Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, on September 23, 1914, as an honorary scholastic sorority by seven girls at the 162 The Delta Sigma Epsilon House at 1005 Merchant is noted for its comfortable porch swing. insistence and assistance of the dean of the college of education. When the sorority branched out into the national field, additional chapters were added. Beta, Gamma, and Delta chapters were added early in 1916. The first two con- claves were held within that year. Since that time bi-ennial conclaves have been held. The governing body to carry on the business and extension program of the sorority is called the Grand Council, and is elected by chapter delegates during the preceding conclave. The sorority has various national committees working to- gether for the continued high national standing of the sorority. After leaving college, all members are privileged to join an alumnae chapter or club if their residence is within a reason- able radius of such a group as to enable attendance at least twice a year. At pres- ent there are three alumnae chapters and 21 alumnae clubs. There is also a club for the mothers of girls who are members in good standing of the sorority. There is a Mothers, Club in connection with Ep- silon chapter. In May, 1930, Delta Sigma Epsilon bought their own house. Miss Gertrude Brown, principal of the intermediate grades, was housemother 0f the sorority for fifteen years. The sorority has had the scholarship cup several times, has won intramural oratory and debate prizes, and has had Sunflower editors. Marguerite Blazier Dorothy Bulmer Barbara Giles Mary J .

Since it was first planted in 1894, forty- nine years of growth have been added. I wonder if the thirteen women who be- came the first Pi Kaps ever looked ahead, and tried to imagine what would happen to their sorority. We have had ninety- eight rush weeks since then, but none could have been gayer than the first se- mester rush week of 1942348.

Mooreis Drug Store was filled with coke dates and the theaters were jammed with chattering girls. The following Sunday was a memorable day for the first semester pledges who participated in pledging service. Another lamb had been added to our family tree. OULD you like to look into the For- mal Closet? Each gown and wrap could write a column for the society page in a daily paper. After a month in the Pi Kap nest, the pledgesi social wings were strong enough for trial. Their first introduction to society was an open house for the fraternity men. Sorority life was not all play with no work, however. The pledges learned to do their duties, and to do them correctly. As a reward, the actives feted their ac- complishments with a midnight Hallow- een party. POpcorn, cokes, and gruesome costumes prevailed. IN NOVEMBER the girls diASproved the statement fftime marches onii and be- came Nursery Rhyme characters. Drop- ping in that night, a stranger would have been startled to meet Mother Goose, Mary and her lamb, Jack-Be-Nimble, Polly with her kettle, and even Simple Simon. Only one thing was wrong. Simple as he was, Simon had a fish! Another important event in November was the Visit of Mrs. Nell Clarisse, second Vice-president 0f the Grand Council. This year was the fourth since the national in- spection had been made. Have you ever seen a group of girls with stage fright? With nerves on edge and knees shaking, the girls anxiously awaited her arrival on Tuesday, November 8. The house was diligently cleaned and each little mouse had been brushed and washed.

NE OF the most impressive social events of. the season was the formal pledge dance. Our pledges dedicated a thhite Christmasi, formal dance to the active members. White Christmas trees and tapering candles were placed on each side of the platform occupied by the Var- sity Band. Fir boughs, tinkling bells, and softening blue lights deepening the shadows of snowbanks transformed the ballroom into a fairy snow land. The Christmas season began with a Christmas breakfast the Sunday before Christmas vacation. That night the pledges presented an original Christmas program for the actives. Beginning with a seasonal reading, creating a mood of reverence, the pledges ended with a subtle prOphecy of the actives at Christmas ten years from now. A gift exchange cli- maxed the evenings celebration. But we cant spend all our time on so- ciety. Our goal is not to be society girls, but girls with the best social understand- ing. A Greek society on the campus couldnit remain hidden if it tried. Every- where, youill find a Pi Kap faithfully pur- suing her hobbies and interests. The question, ilWhat do you like to do best ?" can be answered by a glance at the mem- bership lists of the honorary societies on the campus. We have two senior girls Who are members of Xi PhiAHelen Meyer, our president, and Ardonna Adams, our former president. Another of our senior girls, Glenna Marie Graham, is Vice-president of her class. Three music majors, Marjorie Stevens, Barbara Thomas, and Glenna Marie Graham, are members of Sigma Alpha Iota, national honorary music society. A flare for literature comes to the front with six girls belonging to literary organ- izations. Ardonna Adams, Mary Lee Stewart, and Margaret J ean Fleming be- long to the Sphinx society. Two Pi Kaps, Marjorie Burns and Barbara Thomas, are on the Alice Freeman Palmer roll call. Glenna Graham belongs to Alphathenian. Helen Meyer was our Homecoming queen candidate, and Marjorie Burns and 166 Rubie Brodie took part in the Homecom- ing Follies. The Freshman Play turned one of our well-mannered girls, Hester Moore, to a lady of questionable reputa- tion for an eveningis entertainment. Nine girls drilled and cheered with Sigma Pi Sigma, with Betty Long leading the crowds as one of the cheerleaders. The girls who worked hard to build the best sorority last year were well rewarded by one of the highest honors given to a chapter. In N ovember the Grand Council announced that Iota Chapter had been awarded the Efficiency Award of 1942. Ardonna Adams, president of the sorority last year, and the girls who worked with her deserve praise which was given us, for it was their hard work and lasting ac- complishments which convinced the Coun- cil members that Iota Chapter should re- ceive the award. The pioneer among the National Edu- cation Sororities, Pi Kappa Sigma, was founded in 1894. The thirteen students of Michigan State Normal School at Ypsi- lanti, Michigan, who founded our soror- ity, were first known as J. P. N. In 1896, the secret meaning of the letters was dis- covered, and through their college annual the campus became acquainted with the ilJust Progressive Normalites? In 1897, the group reorganized and the name was changed to Pi Kappa Sigma. The pur- pose was then broadened and the organ- ization adOpted as a pin, a shield of gold surrounded by thirteen pearls represent- ing the original thirteen charter mem- bers, with a diamond in the center. The forget-me-not and the jonquil were the flowers chosen. A quarterly magazine, The Laurel, was established. There on the wall hangs the skeleton on which our sorority was built -- Our Symphony. It has not aged - it never will as long as a Pi Kap is alive to repeat the words of William Henry Channingis liSymphonyfi 8. . . to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages with open heart . . fl This is the ultimate goal of a Pi Kap girl.

DOROTHY JACKSON, ANETHA SODERSTROM, MARJORIE MULKEY Chapter H ostess HIS year has been an active one for Sigma Sigma Sigma. It was full of joys, sorrows, and sacrifices; but most of all, it was a successful year. Our fall group of sixteen pledges, under the presidency of Kathleen Altwegg, had all the pep, enthusiasm, and mischief of a young pup. It was not unusual for an active to come home to find her dresser drawers exchanged with another activeis, or to discover that her difficulty in put- ing on a skirt was the result of the hem having been sewed together. However, these pranks did not pass by without pun- ishment. There was always the pledge performance for the actives. Our faculty sponsor, Miss Irene De- Mun, left in October to act as USO direc- tor in Amarillo, Texas; but Miss Kather- ine Fuller from the Music Hall office has eXpertly acted as a helpful sponsor to the chapter this year. 168 Our mothers were guests of the chap- ter at a lovely Motheris Tea given at the chapter house in October. .UR annual fall barn dance was held in the large garage behind the chapter house. The guests, dressed in overalls, plaid shirts, and cotton dresses, danced upstairs to recordings. The hay-strewn floor, barrels, cornstalks, and bales of straw added to the general barn atmos- phere. The serve-yourself cider bar downstairs was a pOpular spot during the party. At intermission the pledges en- tertained the actives and guests by sing- ing two original songs. The party ended with a Wiener roast and song fest around a bonfire in the back yard. Homecoming decorations on the cam- pus were abolished this year, but activi- ties were plentiful as usual with many alumnae back and the house full. Frances Nunemacher was elected attendant to Peggy Pedagog to help her rule over the Homecoming show, dance, and football game. N AIR of mystery prevailed in the Tri Sigma house the week of November 14. The pledges were working on their pledge party and no active must know the theme. Even on the night of the party, the air of mystery did not disap- pear. The pledges had selected the theme, itArabian Nights? and all the supernatu- ral atmosphere of the Arabian genie per- vaded the party. The smell of incense burning, large chests of silver, bright scarves, a: huge silhouetted genie, an Ara- bian princess, the dance ban in fezzese- all this added a mysterious air to the party.

In- stead of the convention, each chapter was Visited for inspection by a national offi- cer. Mrs. Thelma Walls Howard came to Pi chapter November 20-22 for a helpful and inspiring week-end. Frances Nunemacher ruled as honor- ary commander over the squadron at the Military Ball on December 12. We started Christmas activities with a caroling party. On December 21, we had our annual formal Christmas dinner fol- lowed by an exchange of many lovely gifts and the reading of pledge letters to Santa Claus. Twelve underprivileged children were our guests at a Christmas party, complete with games, Santa Claus, candy, nuts, and gifts. The chapter house at 310 West Twelfth has been burned into soldiersi barracks while the girls live in their tiDuration House? FIFTEEN new actives were added to the chapter roll at initiation services on January 24. A successful second semester rush week W: s completed with services for ten new pledges who elected Edith McCready as their president. These pledges entertained the guests and actives at a clever patriotic formal dance at the Broadview Grill Room on February 20. The room was decorated with red, white, and blue bunting and large portraits of Washington and Lin- coln. Defense stamp corsages were given as favors. HE week-end of February 28 was an Teventful one for us and one we Will always remember. Kansas State Teach- ers College had been approved for the training of Air Corps cadets, and the army approved our house to be used for barracks. The school asked us to give up our chapter house. It was a great sacri- fice, but we were glad to do our little part in the fight. for Victory. After a week of temporary rooms we were able to begin moving into our ttduration house? Two weeks later found us happily settled in our new chapter house at 1112 Commer- cial. During the week of our moving, Phi Mu Alpha staged its sixth annual Sing- ing Bee. We won the cup for the third year for our patriotic presentation. The 170 chorus was dressed in white and stood in a V-formation holding a large red, white, and blue V before them. After an intro- ductory narration on the theme of itFaithfi the chorus sang ttLetis Bring New Glory to Old Glory? then an origi- nal composition, ttPurple and White? by Betty Straight, a member of the chapter. The final number, ttTri Sigma Man? ex- pressed our faith in the men in service. J ereldene J ensen was elected attendant. to the War Bond Queen after a bond buy- ing contest on the campus in March. Founders Day was celebrated April 20 With a lovely formal dinner. The spring formal, given May 1, at the Broadview Hotel, was one of the gayest and best of spring parties. Looking back over the past, Pi chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma had its beginning on this campus in 1917 when Rho Mu Gamma, a local sorority, received its charter from the national organization of Tri Sigma. Pi is one of the thirty-six chapters of the oldest. national education- al sorority. Sigma Sigma Sigma was es- tablished at Farmville, Virginia, in 1898, and now has a chapter roll reaching from New York to California. When this sor- ority became a member of the Associa- tion of Education Sororities in 1911, most of our chapters not on teachers college campuses became Delta Delta Delta chap- ters. Thus, Tri Sigma and Tri Delta be- came sister sororities. Kathleen Altwegg Betty Bietz Marjorie D.

PHI SIGMA EPSILON is both the oldest and largest Greek organization on the campus. Organized in 1910, Phi Sig has been a campus leader for thirty-three years. As was the case in World War I, we are again transferring our member- ship to the armed forces of Uncle Sam. July 1, 1943, will see the enlistment 0f the last of our members into active ser- Vice. Of our membership of the last three years nearly all are now in the service of our country, a large percentage being commissioned officers. Captain Allen Smith and Captain Ed Meisinger are two of the youngest captains in the service. There are any number of first lieuten- ants, second lieutenants, flight instruc- tors, and other officers who have worn the pin of Phi Sigma Epsilon. Phi Sigma Epsilon began the year with twenty-four active members and twenty- five pledges, the largest pledge class on 174 the campus. Anticipating the manpower shortage 0n the campus this year, the large chapter house on Merchant Street was given up last Spring. The fall of 1942 saw the Phi Sigs moving into a new and more economical location at 1244 Highland. Plans were made for the building of a sizeable reserve and for the reconstruction of a post-war fraternity more closely knit than ever before. Despite the sharp curtailment in social activities on the campus, the traditional Farmeris Ball was held with its custo- mary fanfare-bigger and better than ever before. Entertainment, decerations, music, and costumes were strictly rural. Nearly every kind of barnyard accessory was utilized as itdecorations? The pledgesi program of corny jokes, frontier ballads, strip teases, and impersonations was enjoyed by everyone. Music for the party was furnished by the iSagebrush Boys." Several parties were held during the school year at Sunset Inn and at. the chap- ter house. As usual, a large percentage of Empo- ria Stateis football and basketball teams consist of Phi Sigs. Lyle Groberg, Bob Chodrick, Bob Peters, Carl Calvert, Jack Sattler, Bob Burns, Lester Thompson, Bud Foster, Charlie Martin, Joe Edwards, Harlan Wolf, and Eldon Scharff repre- sented Phi Sig 0n the football squad. During the course of the school year, Phi Sigma Epsilon participated quite ac- tively in campus politics. Willie Knox, Student Council president; Owen Wilson and Park Pennington, both freshman presidents; and Bernard Ruddick, sopho- more secretary-treasurer, wear the pin of Phi Sig. Jack Long and Willie Knox are mem- bers of Xi Phi, honorary leadership fra- ternity. M at UPPER LEFT: Pledges tseated on floori are brought into active meeting to hear some impor- tant announcements.

Lieutenant Paul Conway, a student here in 1939, was a member of the Naval Air Corps. He received his basic train- ing at Pensacola and was sent to the west coast in the spring of 1942. Conway and a companion were lost somewhere in the Pacific early in the summer, while flying an observation plane. Sergeant Lee Osborne was a student at Emporia State from 1939 until 1941. While in school, he took an active part in football and basketball. Osborne was one ing cards is a favorite means of relaxation at the Phi Sig House-next to hearing Louie Evans spin a yarn.

Lieutenant Jesse Wilcox was one of four Navy aviators killed in a hurricane in Mississippi September 24, 1941. He received his basic training at the Naval Reserve Aviation Training base in Kan- sas City, Missouri. At the time of his misfortune, he was in command of a squadron of planes in a cross-country flight from San Francisco to Guanta- namo Bay, Cuba, and was also a pilot for Eastern Air Lines. While in school, Wil- cox was active in basketball, tennis, and track. Lieutenant Huebert iiBarneyii Rapp, a student here in 1939 and 1940, was lost in action over EurOpe sometime last fall. Exact details are not available, but Rapp was in the Army Air Corps. Second Lieutenant Woody Hiebert, a bombardier in the Army Air Corps, was among seven men killed when a MacDill Field bomber crashed in the Gulf of Mex- ico near Venice, Florida, early in Decem- ber 1942. Hiebert was in school here from 1938 to 1940. According to some reports, Hiebert is still alive, but it seems to be mostly rumor. ; Pvt. Robert P. Dennis, Bachelor of Science in Education, 1938, is now in- terned by the Japanese in an unnamed concentration camp, after being captured on Bataan Peninsula. The Alpha chapter of Phi Sigma Epsi- lOn was founded at Kansas State Teach- ers College, Emporia, in February, 1910. It was the dream of the founders to have a Greek letter fraternity on the campus that would bring together a de- sirable group for social, physical, mental, and moral deveIOpment. At one of sev- eral meetings which were held in the fall of 1909 a temporary organization was set up. The first officers were: Fred M. Thompson, chairman; Orin M. Rhine, sec- retary. Committees were appointed on oath, ritual, constitution and by-laws. Then came the real birth of Phi Sigma Epsilon. On a-Sunday afternoon in early February, 1910, in :Thompsonis room at 810 Constitutionstreet, the constitution 176 and by-laws were adopted. On that same day, Fred M. Thompson, superintendent of schools at Oskaloosa, Orin M. Rhine, president of the Farmers and Stockmansi State bank, Manhattan; Raymond Victor Bottomly, attorney at Harlen, Montana; Robert C. Marley, newspaper work in Chicago, Illinois; and W. R. Campbell, who is listed among our lost alumni, took the oath. In 1913 the boys decided to have a house of their own and they rented the Cross home, the large house on the corner of Sixth and Union. Phi Sigma Epsilon was housed there until 1917 when most of the boys went to France, and it was de- cided to get a smaller house nearer the campus; so the Phi Sigs moved to 13th and Highland street. This was the home of the chapter only a year; for in 1918 the Phi Sigs bought their present home at 1119 Merchant Street. The Alpha chapter, through its twenty- four years of existence, has grown from an organization of five charter members to an organization of thirty-seven active members, fourteen pledges, and over three hundred alumni at the present time. In the fall of 1927, the Sigma Delta Tau, of Kirksville, Mo.; Pi Sigma Epsi- lon, of Kansas State Teachers College of Pittsburg; and Phi Sigma Epsilon of Kansas State Teachers College of Empo- ria, started correspondence with one an- other in regard to the organization of a national fraternity. At the present time the national teach- ers college fraternity of Phi Sigma Epsi- lon is composed of ten chapters. Next year Phi Sigma Epsilon will un- questionably be only a memory so far as having an active chapter on the campus is concerned. We do not choose to say that we are closing our fraternity-rath- er we are taking time out to go fight a war. The final curtain has not fallen; it has only been the end of the first act. By building a financial reserve and making intelligent plans for the future, we have already set the stage for a second act more glorious than the first.

" .ELTA Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma received its charter in 1922 and is now one of the twenty-eight chapters which comprise one of the largest educa- tional fraternities now in existence. Twenty active members returned to the itTauii house in September and Deltais social activities promptly began by pledg- ing seventeen new men the first semester and four the second semester. The highlight of the first semester was a banquet given in honor of Mother Potts on her fifteenth anniversary with Sigma Tau Gamma. Other events of the year were the pledge party on October 30; the annual Thanksgiving dinner at the chapter house, with Mayor Ora Rindom guest of honor; the Christmas dinner at the Polk-A-Dot Cafe; and a dinner at the chapter house March 9, honoring several members who were leaving for the armed forces. 178 The Sigma Tau House at 1028 Constitution. National Conclave was held at Nash- ville, Tennessee, on January 1, 2, and 3. Scott Mouse was sent as Deltais repre- sentative. Because many of the members of Delta Chapter have entered military service, ac- tivities were somewhat curtailed for the last part of the second semester, but Founders Day was celebrated as usual; and the year ended with a well-attended farewell party.
