Only a small scrap of a note written by a harried Bulletin reporter with a thousand more things to do besides taking messages for editors. But it is a scrap that brought a sigh of relief from the edi- tors. Covers, paper, plates, time---each one had its perplex- ing problems, but here is your annual. Handle it reverently and pause with us a moment while we forget the blood, sweat, and anxious glances---while we say--- "'twas worth it" and---"'twas fun!" lifl 6 'Qflnd Silent foe Watched" By Pat Gangwer and Francis Ross "Then, I wondered where we would be in five years- but it is as though nothing had happened and those five years were only a terrible realistic dream .... " Lee Johnson's band was playing again-it was a 1946 Varsity. Yet it seemed that time had suddenly spun backwards and had come to rest that first year before the war. Benny Course at the piano, T. D. Wheat and Vale Page, Paul Steg, Joe Turner, and Gene Kenney sing- ing the throbbing popular tune . . . on the floor, other familiar faces, lvo Mersmann, Elmer Carpenter, Allen Mauderly, Bernard Taylor, Harry Levinson, Gene Byer, Bob Mott, Findley Hartzler, Ed Shupe, Harold Brooks, Curtis Fischer, Sam Butterfield, and Bob Stauffer -- men that in the interim had been only well remembered names, or faces in an annual. Yet those five years were not a dream. They began with confusion and fear. Men were suddenly leaving. No one noticed at first. We said "goodbye" to Bill and John on Friday and on Sunday Jim came to dinner before leaving at two. Jack and Shorty were leaving the next week and Bob was planning to take the streamliner, Tuesday. One by one they left, some with fanfare, some quietly with only one or two saying goodbye. By Spring, 1943, they were all gone, only a handful re- maining to finish work for their degrees in May. And Silent Joe began his reign of silence-a silence that watched the cadets flood the campus, stationing guards around the buildings, and holding retreat on the athletic field, watched the long lines file into the Hornet's Nest, now a mess hall for five hundred hungry men who soon would don the wings of fliers, bombar- diers, gunners, navigators, carrying defense across the oceans. lt was a silence that watched the girls take over and step into the over-sized shoes left by the men: president of the Student Councl, editor of THE BULLETIN, president of Xi Phi, leader of the dance band, president of S. C, A., chairman of freshman week, editor of THE SUNFLOWERQ watched the girls begin to pull and work, and saw that the shoes were ably filled, even though each had three or four pairs. And still, maintaining the silence, Silent Joe watched as the last strains of the Air Corps Song died away in the distance and the heavy shimmering haze of sum- mer settled down on the campus protecting it from the deafening silnece left by the departing men. But there was only a year of this silence-a year of the shrill voices of women in the classrooms and "Madame Presidents" in the club rooms, a year of strange uniforms arriving for dances, and, like Cinderella, departing again at twelve. A year of war bond drives, service flags, and war stamp admissions to programs and plays. Then Silent Joe spoke again-Long searching notes breaking through the years, ringing at dawn to tell a sleeping restless world that peace had come in Europe. Three months later came the second peace. lt was 1945. The freshmen girls who watched the men leave were now seniors, and their faces turned eagerly toward the trains and buses.

A year when Silent .loe will once more speak of the victorious Hornets. But those Hornets 'have brought the battle grounds back to the stadium and the loud ringing notes will speak of touchdowns instead of vanquished armies. By Harry Levinson History will say that we closed our books, left our classes, and marched off to fight for our country. Be- fore long there will be a halo about that event, the aura of patriotism and self-sacrifice, the excitement of turning from pen to sword. But there is more to the story than that. As now, the days before war were quiet and filled with every rich gift that nature could give in four seasons. There was satisfaction in the mellow odor of burning leaves, stimulation in the chilly whiteness of winter's first snow. There was a deep, thrilling feeling of well-being attached to verdant trees and the color of myriad blossoms. There was peace in the serenity of the clouds and security in the unending expanse of blueness called the heavens. There was inspiration in the dignity of the atmosphere in which we lived and love in the friendships we had built. When suddenly out of the ever-rumbling clouds of international discord there came that blow which shat- tered our world, we gazed on shattered pieces uncom- prehendingly. Slowly we started to pick our paths- those long trails which somehow challange each man before he can see life through, and by ones and twos and threes we took leave with final fond glances at the treasure house that was to'hold our hopes until we returned. From then on there was danger attached to the smell of smoke, misery and discomfort hidden in the whiteness of snow, death and pain under the leaves and behind the blossoms. Out of the clouds came bullets and bombs and the endless expanse of the heavens joined with the almost endless expanse of the seas to encompass our loneliness with a vacuum of blue. There was fear and blood and disgust in the atmosphere and in the friendships we tried to mold there was frustration as newly made friends fell. As it must at times, the world tired of the gamut it had set for itself and ceased its masochistic barbarism. Weary, heartsick men, covered with the dust of all the Earth and ingrained with its multiple troubles and trag- edies, turned toward home. Now, as then, the days are quiet and filled with every rich gift that nature can give. Once more we have taken from the treasure house our hopes, bound up in the ties that have linked us to each other while we were gone, and added to them the inspiration in- herent in our atmosphere, the challenge bequeathed by friends who could not return. Historians may postulate, idolators may paint their golden halos, but none will ever touch the core of that relationship which bound each of us to Emporia State. For that relationship comes from ioint experiences, the excitement of fall football and the beauty of spring ro- mance, the color of formal dances and the gayety of political parades, the verbosity of evening bull sessions, and the discipline of classroom instruction, and above all, from the sheer satisfaction of living with each other. Thank God it hasn't changed. DR.

D., Edinburgh University, Scotland, was inaugurated the tenth president of the college in a special convocation in Albert Taylor Hall, November 9, 1945. Dr. MacFarlane was presented as tenth president by Oscar S. Stauffer, chairman of the Board of Regents, who acted as chairman of the inauguration. Mr. Stauffer said that America,s future rests in colleges that have progressive leadership. W'ith that idea in mind the Board of Regents appointed Dr. MacFarlane as presi- dent of the college. In the response, Dr. MacFarlane said that he realized the responsibility of his position, but with the confidence in a cooperative faculty and in God, and challenged by eager, alert students, he felt equal to the task. He also asked that teachers in the class room train students for citizenship. A "structure for living" is what The Inaugural Recepfion l 9 l every student should get from an education, he said. Dr. Fred Fagg, Dean of the Faculty of Northwestern University, gave the main address of the service. He said that an inauguration is a time of taking inventory which is doubly important in a teachers' college. In a general review of the war, Dr. Fagg pointed out that American soldiers came through because they had a firm belief in democracy formed under the influence and guidance of their teachers. Students learn free enterprise and democracy in the classroom, he said. Following the address, Miss Doris Bergh, voice instructor, sang the arioso from the "The Death of Jeanne d'Arc" by Bemberg. Miss Bergh was accompanied by Miss Pearl Weidman. Dr. MacFarlane was welcomed by eight persons representing many organizations. Those people were Miss Edna McCullough, represent- ing the faculty, Miss Helen Heartwell, president of the Student Councilg Frank V. Bergman, president of the Alumni Association, Ora G. Rindom, Mayor of Emporia, L. D. Wooster, pres- ident of Fort Hays State College, representing the state schoolsg W. W. Peters, president of McPherson College, Rees H. Hughes, president of Pittsburg Teachers College, representing the American Association of Teachers Colleges, and Clyde U. Phillips, of Hays City Schools, repre- senting the National Education Association and the Kansas State Teachers Association. The many guests were introduced by Mr. Stauffer before the audience, led by Dr. Bor- chers, sang the Alma Mater. Following the inauguration, a luncheon for President MacFarlane and guests was held. Fri- day evening a reception was held for the faculty and students. Preszdent MacFarlane resjzomls at the lmzugural Services U01 by Arlie Crabb and Maurme Sc'bwm'm The Advisory Office performs functions re- quiring tact and sympathetic understanding on the part of the persons who fill these offices. An integral part of the liberal education is cen- tered around their offices. Many important conferences are held behind closed doors for the benefit of the student. The duties of the advisors include counsel- ing the students of the campus on personal and group problems, directing their activities, approv- ing and supervising their rooming and boarding houses, and enforcing standards of conduct. Perplexing problems that women students may encounter are brought to the attention of Dr. Minnie Miller, XVomen's Student Advisor. However, Miss Milleris services extend much farther than just the ironing out of possible difficulties. She acts as the official recorder of the social calendar, and tries to prevent con- flicts in the turmoil of scheduling social events. Miss Miller personally attends many of the social functions sponsored by campus organizations. Patience, generous consultation, and calm under- standing of student problems are assets to Miss Miller's work. ,Student Advisors In addition to her duties as an advisor Miss Miller heads the Modern Language Department, and conducts classes in Spanish and French. Miss Miller joined the faculty as a professor in the modern languages in 1929. She received her B. S. Ed. at this school, her masterls and her doctor's degrees from the University of Chicago. The counsel and advice of V. T. "Vic" Trusler characterize the work of Men's Student His personality and straight-forward Advisor. manner have enabled him to come into close contact with the students of the campus. Mr. Trusler's major counseling capacity concerns the returned veterans. Last fall he returned from England after serving for two years as field director of the American Red Cross in the London area. He is interested in all phases of school life. Prior to his leave-of-absence he was head of the Physical Educational Department and one of the best known athletic coaches and physical edu- cation directors in the midwest. 111 All Else Is Work by Mazzrine Sclawarm President ,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,, H elen Heartwell Vice President ., ,,7,, . ,,,,,,,, ,,,7,,,, l 'eggy Block Secretary-Treasurer ,,,,, ,, ,,,,,,,,, Frances M.

Candidates are nominated by open political caucuses. In the past years, two political parties have existed, the Progressives, and the United Students. This year, a year of changes, a general student up-rising created the Student Reform League which based its cam- paign on a platform demanding more student government. With candidates, a platform and plenty of spirit, the parties descend upon the campus in all the glory of "big time politicians." Torch- light parades, and snake dances winding down Commercial boost the soap-box orators vieing for the students vote.

Suspense follows the counting of the votes as the council members turn a cold back on all "you can tell me-I won't tell anyone" or like wheedling that comes from all sides. Friday the news is out. Some- times with banner headlines announcing a land- slide for one of the parties, sometimes with a small conservative story listing the new mem- bers, The Bulletin carries the big story.

Practically every service a student receives, such as magazines in the Hornet's Nest, dances, golfing privileges, and movie convoca- tions are financed and organized by the Council. The student governing body conducts all elections and is the official voice of the students. voicing their opinions and wishes to the higher governing bodies of the school. Working with them is a new body, created this year to coordin- ate the student and faculty ideas and problems, The Student-Faculty Adjustment Board. Here the current issues of the day concerning both faculty and students are discussed by six students and six faculty members. Arriving at a common ground, the group present their findings and decisions to the president of the college for action.

Q tw" We, the Students.. It was an autumnal setting and peace again ruled the world when the students, new and old, once more were frequenting the campus of Emporia State. Old acquaintances were greeted, the topic was of the summer's happen- ings, how fate had treated each other, and what lay ahead. Students were still predominately female, and the idea of peace was so new that very little had happened to change the wartime Setting. Still absent was the inevitable male who seemed to have a place in the heart of nearly every little coed. Preliminary greetings completed, we settled down to school work with enrollment and sped f14 I ll 0xvV'eiwUK Q-amide 2 lx ali Ja 1' J X - l V 1 X Aer? 13 ,mr A Z i -I 1 V - ? 99' ,VF94 .'-' '-i.

The strong inde- pendent organization also looked good and many a girl debated whether to pledge or stay inde- pendent. Many young men, however, were available to lure some conscientious young lady from her studies and out on a picnic, or to do something else to waste some valuable study time. Elections came along-political parties campaigned hard to elect their respective can- didates.

In each year,s class a few students stand out above the others in leadership and all around ability. These- the presidents, the secretaries, the chairmen of countless committees whose calendar of meetings is never empty- whose work seems an endless checklist of things to do --these, the campus leaders, are honored each year by being selected by an unannounced, unbiased, committee to XVho's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Although almost all members are seniors, a few are chosen while juniors, and still fewer while sophomores. Twelve current students now wear the key of recognition and are listed in the 1946 edition of the Who's Who Biographies. i161 ..

To Morse Hall girls, Wooster lake, and the lawns sloping to its edge, the white steps, are as much a part of their home as the large reception room, the game room or even the mail boxes in the office. Ruling the northeast corner of the campus, Abigail Morse Hall is the home of both independent and sorority girls. Behind the massive walls, bull sessions, parties, studying, piano playing, and aggressive house meetings help build and establish independence and cooperative habits of living in each of the eighty-five girls. Four floors of attractively painted rooms house the many girls who run in and out, attending classes, meeting dates-living a college life. Sitting rooms off the reception room, comfortably furnished with divans, a grand piano, and a combination radio and record player, belonging to the girls themselves, provide a home-like atmosphere for entertaining guests. Strains of Chopin or the sharp notes of popular "boogie', often drift up from the game room below. There, ping pong, shuffle board, and colces are the enticement for those before and after-dinner moments of relaxation before studying and quiet hours begin. Homesickness can not find even a lcnothole of space in this hall, large as it is. Friendly upperclass women, an ever-willing housemother and the friendly atmosphere Combine to give each lonely freshman a welcome to college life.

Q HE white crest of the Administration Building rises high above the trees and buildings of Tmporia seeming to beckon the students to walk betvs een the huge pilla s and through the wide doorways to the class rooms beyond beckons them to become a part of tht steady hum of activity within. The hum? These are the sounds of learning. The continual chatter of the typewriters as stenographers try for their five perfect lines . . . the rising and falling of music and weird sound effects as the radio classroom goes on the air . . . the loud cries of a news hawk in a Gilson Play, the rumble of rubber tires of the push cart carrying mail and tests. Noises of learning, too, are the hesitant voices of freshmen giving a speech on "Why I Came to College", the loud whine of the Seashore test in the psychology laboratory, the monotonous call of "six heads . . . four tails . . ." as the mathematics students study the laws of probability and the strains of Spanish songs floating from second floor. The loud buzzing and whine of saws in the basement, hushed voices from the dark room, and the long loping steps of a reporter as he anticipates the irritated demands of a harried editor-these, all these are the noises of students learning so that tomorrow they can help make and direct the noises for others to learn. "There is your college," a taxi driver may have pointed out, and all we could see was a white crest poised above a quiet peaceful campus. But if he should say it again and again point to the white half moon above the trees, we would see that crest as the top of a tall stately building behind whose doors men and women are digging an education from mountains of facts and figures imprisoned in the walls of their texts. And above the noises of the street, we would hear the still louder noises that rush through the open doors and windows, the noises of learning.

Many noises combined in the creating of the low, neat hedges, the smooth lawns and shrubbery: the tinnish snip of the gardener's shears, the spring-sounding roar of the power driven mower and the laughter of energetic students digging dandelions. These are the noises, and this the setting so created. Rose gardens, carefully pruned and guarded against the snow, a sparkling fountain playing water upon the pool be- neath where golden fish dart back and forth from sunlight to the dark cool recesses near the sides of the pond. Here and there great names are immor- talized. There is Plumb Hall, and Butcher Elm, Beach Hall, and Norton Science Hall- The sun dial, the flagpole, the pool in the sunken gardens and the semi-circular seats by the Administration Building bring back memories of the classes which presented them to the school. Then there are the little places that have become endeared to first one and then an- other. The queen's throne and the wishing well, the small waterfall just outside the hornet's nest, the bridge across Wooster lake, silent Joe, and the hidden pool in Wilson Park, the little footbridge in the rock garden, all these favorite spots are hallowed with mem- ories of beautiful nights and sparkling days. 24 25 " . . . iwo rivers ioin their banks of green and stately hulls of learning rise . . .

Color The criss-crossing walks of the campus lead through the beautifully land- scaped gardens of roses, iris, crocuses, daffodils, tulips, flags, sweet william, and violets which form a background of soft and purposeful color for the sparkling colored water of the fountain.

E231 While directly across the campus the sounds of junior and senior high school move out to remind the college of the coming freshman classes. Here is high school-but a school not of staid standards of passing years, but patterns of the future. Practice teaching, the sounding board of new philosophies for the elementary school on the east or Roosevelt High on the west. Formal discipline, or progressiveism, the methods shift from day to day, searching to train the teachers to fill Kansas schools with the best. Whether the skies are dull With heavy winter clouds, or bright with the newness of spring and the brilliant ripeness of fall-still the buzzers ring, students take their places and older students begin to learn. Roosevelt High School E291 5 A1 'Ex or Student Union N f30j 'Q " . . . in the union .... " has long been the most popular and most used phrase among the students and faculty, whether for meetings, or luneheons, or afterclass dates, the Memorial Student Union is the center of Emporia State life. Breaking ground for the new building, the first shovel of dirt was turned in 1924. By 1925 the first part was ready for use. It housed a student beauty parlor, the Old Gold Tea Room, the Sun- flower and Bulletin offices, a lounge, the Y. W. C. A., and apartments for faculty women. In 1929 the ballroom, one of the l110St elaborate in the state, was opened with an all-school party attended by a thousand students, faculty, and towns- people. But the buzzithe sound of hundreds of Hornets comes from the basement of the building named the Hornet's Nest in 1934. Ping Pong and card tables, a lounge, and a fountain, all provide excellent reasons for the majors in Unionizing professed by many of the students. The Hornet mural on the west wall was painted by Paul Edwards, creator of the Corky mascot. In 1942, Margaret Broomfield, a senior, designed a mural depicting college life which was completed later in the year by Alpha Theta Rho. In 1943 the Nest was converted to a Mess Hall for the Aviation Cadets. The furniture was moved to the lobby of the first floor, and a refreshment stand was opened in the S. C. A. room. Now after two years there is again the buzz of Hornets in the Nest and plans are being made to enlarge its many facilities to take care of the many students to come. In terior E311 'S f32 Stc1d1z1m From the first days of fall until the cold days of winter, and again in the spring, the fresh, vigorous calls of football echo against the stadium walls. It is a joyful noise-the noise of Victory, telling of a touchdown made 3 a game won. Built as part of the M . . emorial to the Emporia State men who did not return from the first World Wz11', the beautiful stadium li ' es just below Wilsori Park, north of Wooster Lake. At the extreme right center, one sees "Silent Joen, the victory bell which rings out for each victory of the Emporia Hornets. The field has been a deserted place for the past three years, more a home of ghosts than husky players, but now the men have come back and since early April prospective players have been spending every spare minute with Coach Wfelch, undergoing the training of spring football so that next fall will find the Hornets ready to go. So that "Silent Joeu will ring out again, from his sentry post watching over the goal posts. Be Not Like . "Be not like dumb-driven cattle . . . " philosophized the poet. But when, as a confused and awed freshman I tried to edge my way into the milling crowds of the enrollment room, I shook my head in dismay. Could he expect the impossible? Gladly would I be a hero in any strife, but not in tris intricate, befuddled maze called enrollment. Nevertheless, I didn't do badly. With fear of embarrassment clinging to one side and a well-meaning upper-class guide clinging to the other, I finally marched triumphantly from the Bursar's Office, myself enrolled and my fees Paid! All was iight with the world. That is-all was right with the world until three weeks later when I learned that my easy thirteen hours wouldnit go very far toward making mc a second semester freshman. But now I watch the enrollment notices go up with glee, now, a senior, I can gracefully lean back and watch the grinning, carefree students walk into the second floor of the gymnasium, unwarned and unknowing. Two-four-six hours, according ta the student's previous instruction, and his dashing ability, must be spent in perplexed consideration of discovering fifteen academic hours which will fulfill groups, majors, and degree requirements, and still not conflict. And there is no rest. Just when the correct number of hours has been captured and scheduled with the advisor's approval, Dr. Pflaum opens the umiken on the public address system and announces, "Course number SSA in the Commerce Denartment is closed to further enrollment!" There goes nothing. And to think that tall coke was almost in sight. The whole schedule must be rearranged to provide another two hours course which will fit that semester's requirements. Like me the freshmen will be blessed with upper classmen guides, who will direct them through the chaos of meeting their particular faculty departmental heads, help them pick out their major field, and rub their hands when an acute case of writers cramp develops. 5 Victory again-the temporary cards have been exchanged for permanent cards, the departmental head has his signature on the schedule, that endless string of schedules has been filled out so that the president as well as the ianitor knows where you are every minute of the day, and the delightful statement of fees has been handed to you- "in like Flynn" for another semester. Now pray that no classes are closed. A coke, a cigarette, a fast game of cards in the Hornets Nest will provide a quick recovery for the struggling enrollee. Maybe that is one reason the union is such a favorite spot, no enrollment is necessary to major in "Unionism." And to think! They can look ahead to the future. After six more enrollments. they should almost have the procedure learned. Then they can bless some freshman with their never ending aid! Even cattle, reach the pasture! i331 H.

Alphathenjan Alice Freeman The Alphathenian Literary Society was or- ganized in the fall of 1936. The objective of this society is to create interest in and to further the appreciation of literature. Each year the programs are centered around some particular phase of literature either old or new. Miss Della Warden and Mrs. Elsie Pine are the society sponsors. y I 38 Palmer Alice Freeman Palmer Literary Society was founded in 1913 with Mrs. Alice Freeman Palmer as its ideal. Membership in A. F. P. is based upon high scholastic standing, and upon individual adaptation to the active group. The objectives of the organization are fourfold: advancement of scholarship, encouragement of literary achieve- ment, promotion of friendship, and training for social leadership.

E401 s The Sphinx Literary Society was founded in 1919 by Miss Teresa M. Ryan of the English Department. The purpose of this club is to create an interest in the field of literature. The Sphinx Society is not limited to English studentsg any Woman interested in the study and discussion of literature is eligible. A rush week tea was given at the beginning of each semester, and the annual formal banquet was held in the spring in the Student Union. Mr. Charles P. Paterson, of the Speech Department, gave his interpretation of the negro story "How Come Christmasl' at the banquet. The Sphinx Society membership is limited to thirty girls who show special interest in the study of literature and who are chosen by the active members of the club. The pledges are chosen for their personality, scholastic and leadership ability. Five new members were pledged to Sphinx this year. They Were: Esther Knotts, Barbara Barnett, Grace Selvy, and Naomi Dickson. Various musical selections furnished variety at the regular bimonthly meetings in which both members and guests participated. back row, left to right: jerry Qta, Dorothy Richards, Betty Cline, Eltanore Randel Celeste Conklin Leia Caraway, Front row, left to right: Virginia Haynes, iloan Robinson, Fthel Alice McNeill Ioycc Mobley Xirgima Nunley, Patricia Thomas, Anna Mae Turner, Pat Price T411 Qmega Literary Society OFFICERS: VERENA JOHNSON ,,,..,,7 ,,, 7 ,77 .,, 7,, ,,,,. .

Its membership of thirty-five is limited to girls who have attended college for at least one semester with a high scholastic standing. The Omega scrapbook, kept since the society was founded, contains a history of the college's social life. Among the early activities of the Omega's were heated debates in chapel with teams from the menis Alpha Senate. A debate on women's suffrage, for instance, was not unlikely to end in a near-riot. Omega has two honorary members, Mrs. XV. A. White and Mrs. C. Stewart Boertman fMary Louise Butcherj. Preserved in the scrap- book is a resolution which was read in chapel, formally announcing the adoption of the president's new daughter as the Omega baby. The Society maintains the Martha George Rider fund for the use of Omega members and other graduate and undergraduate students. Gifts from the society and from former members have increased the loan fund to more than 3500. The Annual spring luncheon is Homecoming for Omega Alumnae. Other social events of the year are the rush picnics, birthday party, and the Christmas party. Verena Johnson and Mrs. Kathleen Acker were elected president and vice president respectively to replace Edith Mae McCready and Mrs. Nancy Jo DeBruler who withdrew from school last February. Eleven pledges were initiated in the Society this spring. The pledges were: Joan Block, Freda Ames, Adclia Evans, Marjorie Haley, Mona Edmisson, Iris Helmley, Eleanor Marsh, Jane Drum, Juanita Moses, Maurine Schwarm, and Mary Jo Utting.

Mu chapter of Pi Omega Pi had a very successful year with all members of the organization actively par- ticipating. Meetings were held the second Monday of each month in the Alumni Room of the Student Union. Programs pertinent to business teaching problems were provided at each of these meetings. Miss Oreta Davis was chosen editor for the publica- tion of the Mu Pi Omegan-the annual chapter publica- Pi tion which came off the press in May and was distributed to all members. Stanley Stalter and Betty Cline were initiated into active membership on November 17. Following the pro- gram the members were entertained at the home of Mr. , and Mrs. McGill, the chapter sponsor, with refreshments P1 and a party. The highlight of the spring semester Was the re- sumption of the annual trip to Kansas City. On March 11 a pledge dinner was held in the Student Union. Mrs Diekoff and Mrs. Sage were pledged to membership. Initiation services were held May 18, for Daryl Nichols, Mrs. Vivian Sage, Mrs. Luella Diekoff, and Anna Pfrang The spring formal preceded the initiation service. 1 I44l left in right: Glen McKinlev Hill Grimwootl, loe Gallatin, Lluvcl litlwqtrds, Francis Taylor, Clifford Lindbttrgh, Alfred Deering, ofki.

Perhaps, there are many of you college students who are not aware of the many other students going to school on this campus. Some of us may have just been here a year as you, but then, there are many of us who have been going to school here for years, in fact, some of us started here. We are the students of the training school system, the nursery school, the kindergarten, the grade school, and Roosevelt High School. We are the guinea pigs. We are here to provide you with practical experience in teaching and in school management. New teaching methods are tried out on us, some good, some badg some work and some don't. But don't overlook us, we are, perhaps, much more valuable than any textbook you've ever owned. From two years old to seventeen, we are your fellow students. U31 0:0 ! !

But-". lt is an interesting parallel that for the remainder of the play, the lives of half a dozen people are revolutionized by their chance encounter with this stranger who appeared for half an hour.-and then was gone forever. But as the final curtain descends, one knows that if this story could be proiected through the years of the lives of these characters there would be countless times when each of them would see, in his mind's eye, suddenly and inexplainably, the face of Mr. Pim and the heart of each would swell a little with love and gratitude that Mr. Pim had lived-and for a moment-had touched their lives. The parallel ends there. For the miracle of Mr. Pim's influence was accidental-fumbling-awkward -and without design. But the poetic truth of that final play of Dr. Gilson's, as an evaluation of his own life, is apparent and unmistakable. into the lives of thousands of young men and women of Kansas, Dr. Gilson came-as a teacher, as a director, and as a friend. And the lives of thousands of young men and women were to sundry degrees made richer, always more exciting, always more blessed. The richness of poetry, the humanity of drama, the vitality of all literature were to him the most exciting of all experiences and his greatest pleasure lay in revealing that excitement to the students whom he taught. When asked on one occasion what his "approach" to literature was, he remarked with a snort, "We don't approach it-we iust plow into it." He was, perhaps, too little of a scholar,-he simply loved the "whole man" more than the total of man's component parts. And more than that, he could communicate that love to his students and other friends. His greatest God was personal integrity, honesty and sincerity were his Apostles Creed, sham, hypocrisy or the idolatrous worship of form and outward appearance were the Seven Deadly Sins. lt was the truth of living literature that attracted him and compelled him to communicate it to others. Dr. Gilson's enthusiasms were tremendous-his antipathies, violent-his wrath, volcanic. But there was never any doubt as to where he stood. To Dr. Gilson, as to his friend, Emerson, consistency was the hobgoblin of little minds. The "new wine" of his creativity was forever bursting the "old wine skins" and many of his contemporaries were forever perplexed that beliefs which he had once held could be discarded for others. All of which is to say that to the day he was asked not to accept retirement, he remained young. All of which is to say that, exactly as he wished, he died before growing old. Four years of college-or one year-or the length of one semester's class is not too long to know a man. But there are few students who knew Dr. Gilson in a single class, or for a year, or through four years who have not developed because of that experience a little finer regard for man's literature, a little deeper respect for their own personal integrity, who are not today a little "younger" than what they might have been. And thousands of young men and women, could they have seen that final play, could they have known it was his last, would have nodded their heads a little as Mr. Pim declared, "l have only come into your lives for a moment, and it is probable that I shall now pass out of them forever.

The farce comedy was superbly handled by a cast of many veteran Gilson Players who turned an otherwise might- have-been "corn" production out to be good theatre be- cause of the way the cast handled their characteriza- tion so admirably. "Kiss and Tell" was pre- sented as the 13th annual production of the freshman class. A story that involved family feuds, secret mar- riages, and much bewildered parents amazed and pleased a capacity audience in thc manner in which the climax was held until the very end of the play.

Drjbbling the Hard Way They were not the best Emporia State cage squad ever to greet 11 coach at the outset of the season, but the members of that small group were ready and willing to begin working off the excess poundage that many of the members had picked up while in the armed forces. Among those reporting at the beginning of the season were Bill Campbell, former letterman and Hornet star of pre-war days, Jim O'Donnell, former C. of E. lettermang Meredith Litchfield, freshman, Galen Milsap, former Emporia High star, Paul Knoeppel, Emporiag George Mendenhall, Cottonwood Falls, Paul Heinze, Hillsborog Walt Smith, Larnedg and John Rees, Emporia. Returning to take up the reins of rounding the Hornets into shape for the renewal of an unofficial Central Conference race was Everett "Gush Fish, former Hornet star athlete in football and basketball, and a popular member of the athletic department since his graduation in 1929. Gus served four years with the Navy during the E701 war, spending considerable time in the European Theater. Faced with a seventeen game schedule, the Hornet aspirants went to work in an effort to adapt themselves again to the ways of the cage game. But all too soon the opening game of the season with St. Benedicts came upon them. The Hornets met the Ravens on the Civic Auditorium floor and came out on the long end of a 35 to 31 score. Litchfield, Campbell, and O'.Donnell carried the scoring duties, tossing eleven, eleven, and seven points respectively. Thriving on the taste of an opening victory, the Hornets journeyed to McPherson where they outscored the college SS to 35. Campbell and Smith tied for high honors with twelve points, while Litchfield and O'Donr1ell were close with eleven and ten points. Returning to Emporia, the Hornets next played host to the Topeka Army Air Base cagers, and, as Gus Fish substituted at will, the Hornets aimzszmi SERWE fb. if '.f?r.'fr YL?

Again it was Campbell, Litch- field, and O'Donnell, leading the scoring with Campbell racking up nineteen points to walk off with honors. But in their return game with the Air Base, the Hornets were handed their first defeat of the season with a score 46 to 36. A second set- back was given the Hornets when they vied with the Washburn cagers at Emporia. The score after forty frenzied minutes of basketball: Washburn 41, the Hornets 38. Campbell tossed in twelve points for offensive honors as Red O'Donnell played outstanding defensive ball. Smarting from two consecutive defeats the Hornets traveled to Baldwin where, led by Campbell, they defeated Baker University, 65 to 48. Hornet hopes on the hardwood soared sky- ward as Wilbur Reeser and Owen Wilson, former lettermen, made their appearance on the campus. The Fish-men then traveled to Hutchinson to meet the Naval Base five and were defeated 63 to 56 in a high scoring session that found the highly touted sailors living up to their pre-game notices. Riding slightly above the .500 mark with four victories and three defeats, the Hornets returned homeward to prepare for the five Cen- tral Conference games immediately confronting them. The revamped line-up containing Reeser and Wilson, lacked six points of topping the men from Pittsburg, losing 47 to 42. Campbell paced the Hornets with nineteen points and the team had to get along without Smith who left for the Army, shortly before the game. Second semester bolstered the squad with some much needed reserves: Fred Griffith, Byron 1 P Cazfzpbcll KZZQ flips a fijz in and Gordon goes up with two Piflsburg men for the rcbozmd. O'Domzc'Il and Wilson stand ready. 72 1 Graber, former lettermeng Forrest Baer, Abilene, Alvin Morris, Emporia, and Robert Gordon, Americus. ln defeating Southwestern 49 - 45, the Hornets now had Reeser as a leader, taking the scoring honors with thirteen points. Hopes for a C. I. C. title did a turn about the following week when they lost to Walshburli in the final seconds of play 54 to 52. Litchfield and O,D0nnell kept the Hornets in the game, garnering sixteen and fifteen points respectively. Undaunted by their setbacks, Coach Fish's squad won their next five games in fine style, defeating St. Benedicts, 54-28, Fort Hays, 48-375 Baker, 54-403 Fort Hays, 39-355 and Southwest- ern, 53-39. Leading the Hornets in these games were Reeser, Campbell, and Litchfield. Wilson stood out for the Hornets in the Southwestern fray when he held the high scoring Balke to three field goals and one charity toss. The Hornets split their remaining two games, losing to Pittsburg, 53-64, and winning from McPherson, 53-48. It was, all in all, a good season, and Emporia State's hat is off to Coach "Gus" Fish for his work which brought the Hornets through a seventeen game schedule with eleven victories and six losses. The starting line-up throughout the main part of the season was: Litchfield, and Reeser, for- wardsg Campbell, center, and O'Donnell, and Wilson, guards. Other members of the squad seeing considerable action were Baer, Graber, Mendenhall, Gordon, and Morris.

Distinctively marked by their gold sweaters and black skirts, the girls of Sigma Pi Sigma are a pleasant sight to all fans. With the background of the Emporia State pep bands, school spirit is always kept alive. This year the Sigma Pi Sigma girls formed an active organization. Chartered by the Stu- dent Council, it became functional as any other department or honorary organization. Officers were elected, and permanent meetings were established. Since 1940, when the girls' athletic fund was cut, and the backing of the physical education department withdrawn, the girls of Sigma Pi Sigma have carried on. So this year they decided it was time to start making a real self sustaining organization of Sigma Pi Sigma. Members are selected for their personal appearance, marching ability, and knowledge of school songs and yells at try-outs held in the fall. The cheerleaders are selected by the Student Council with members of the faculty of the Women's Physical Education Department assist- ing. This year's cheerleaders were Claudine Decker, Betty Knoeppel, and Mary Jane Moore. This year the girls of Sigma Pi Sigma opened each game at the Civic Auditorium by forming a large human E S back of a color guard and standing as the band played the National Anthem. The girls went to Topeka to the Washburn game in a chartered bus, and those who stayed over as guests of Washburn college had an enjoyable time. 741 Azeri- 'Unwa-1 I . , Left to right, back row: Ina Lou Conklin, Evelyn Cooper, Virginia Moore, Iiditli Mae McCready, Ifleanor Randel jane Drum, Phyllis Leroux.

A few veterans had returned to the campus but for the most part the Homecoming Hornets were still in uniform or on terminal leave. Peggy Block was crowned Peggy Pedagog, traditional homecoming queen, at the climax of the entertaining Homecoming Folliesg the upper- classmen defeated the freshmen 19 to 2 in the first college football classic staged here since 1942g and the crowd of approximately 350 danced to the music of the "Rhythm Nine" in the trans- formed stadium of the Student Union Ballroom to climax the annual homecoming festivities.

Miss Block, senior from Preston, the candi- date of the independent women, was elected Thursday, but her identity was kept secret until she was presented by Bob Mott, and was crowned by Jo Leatherman, last year's Peggy Pedagog. Miss Evelyn Cooper, senior from Meade, was runner-up. Vic Peck was Master of Ceremonies for the Follies and presented the skits that were Worked out by the womenis social organizations on the campus. The Tri Sigs were first on the program, presenting the Sigma Sigma Sigma choir singing songs that brought back nostaglic memories of college days to a lonely sailor. The Alpha Sigs presented a musical reading, which told about the college days of mother, as contrasted with college today. As the poem was read, members of the sorority assisted by campus men panto- mimed action to fit the lines. Winnetaska's skit was built around Corky's return to the campus. Corky had visions of beautiful girls and as he told his dream to the first professor he met on the campus, he was stunned by appearance of the typical coed dressed in a plaid shirt and blue jeans. The Alpha Taus presented a musical melodrama in the rendition of Frankie and Johnnie. Costumed members portrayed the action Evelyn Cooper, Runner-up To Queen Peggy Pedagog to the background of the chorus. The Pi Kaps kept the audience in the period of the Gay Nineties in presenting a skit depicting the can- can dancers and a torchy singer of that period. The Delta Sig skit took place in the studio of a portrait painter whose work pleased the patron but not the patron's husband-he shot the painter. The upperclassmen Won the football game that resulted in many minor injuries, but the wound to the freshman pride was probably the most lasting result. Playing a razzle-dazzle game that left the opposing team and the enthusiastic crowd confused, the upperclassmen kept out of danger by some very effective quick-kicking by fullback Mauderly, and presented to the freshmen a hitherto unheard of four-man line in six-man football. Anchored on either end by plus 200 pounders Doc Wilson and Allen Mauderly, the oldsters held the freshmen skat backs, Dick Hager and Bob Gladfelter, in check most of the afternoon. At the half the freshmen presented their satirical skit on the glory and honor due to upper- classmen. The freshmen who stole the show were three "dainty" dancers who performed for the king. The stunt Was climaxed by the ceremonious removal of their hats and ribbons by the freshmen.

The Staff Speaks This writer acknowledges the fact that not every yearbook can perfectly depict the school life of every student. This book was planned while there was stillua war going on. It was conceived with the idea of serving approximately four hundred students Cmostly girlsj. In the ensuing days of the first semester, the student body grew with the late enrollment of first- released servicemen. It was apparent then, that the second semester enrollment would nearly double that of the first semester. As for the Sunflower, estimates had been made, a temporary layout had been completed, contracts had been let, funds were few, materials were scarcer, and everyone was lost in a college life that was new and different to all. The returning veteran had a different outlook on school, the students who had been here through the war years were happily seeing changes being made in the general social pattern of the war-time college. Hoping you will keep in mind that to err is human and to forgive is divine, we have tried to edit this yearbook to the best of our ability, and our greatest desire is that in the future it will remind you of one of the happiest years of your lives. As we reiterate about this unusual year 1945-1946, let us review some of the adverse activities that made it a new and exciting year. We have already told you about "Dean Mac" being inaugurated as President of the College, and of Homecoming and "the great grid classic" that brought football back to the stadium. Perhaps we should have rung Silent joe in appreciation of a new era in college life. Social events, the sorority parties were more fun than they had been in many years. The first semester gave an inkling of better days to come. With more than 250 vet- erans swelling the enrollment to approximately 700, the second semester got off to a great start, several people started yelling for other peo- ple's necks, then they were yelling for the necks of the persons who started the yell- ing for the necks of other persons. Quite confusing, wasn't it? Most students were new, and the effrontery startled some of the people. Many heated debates were held, all kinds of quiet con- l ferences and political meetings were held, some people rather didn't like other people. Peti- tions ran wild, everybody had a petition, every- thing but a petition to end all petitions. An adjustment board was elected to present student differences to the faculty. It was a fact-finding board and a few things were brought to light. Everything quieted then for a few weeks to mark the beginning of one of the hottest political campaigns ever staged on this campus. A new party was formed, great Caucuses were held, a few candidates were dis- qualified, and after the election, each party had elected the identical number of students. Party differences were soon forgotten in the gayest of spring social seasons. Every social organization entertained with wonderful parties and school life was grand. The seniors went on a memorable sneak to Noel, Mo. "Old Bluev whom the seniors met for the first time, dis- covered that the Hornets were great "joes and james" and followed the lovable seniors back to Emporia. CAfter a brief encounter with the Blackfoot tribe near Pittsburglmj Highlighting the social events of the years was the splendid performance of the two dance bands on the campus. "Rosalie and her Music Makers" held forth the first semester but the second semester and the returning veterans pro- duced one of the finest, if not the finest campus dance band in the nation, and certainly the best ever on this campus. Lee Johnson led and played in a campus band for six years before entering the service. The return of Joe Turner, Warren Austin, Benny Course, Eddie Workman, Bob Ousley, Gene Kenny, and many others blended together to make Lee Johnson's "Music of To- morrowv unforgettable in the hearts of the stu- S3 Q U dents attending the social events of the season. up the detail, so read on and sec how and where So we say, 1945-1946 was a grand year, we spent most of our spare time-as if you didnlt one that we will never forget, but we are holding already know.

Officers of the club are: Allen Mauderly, president, Gene Kenny, vice presidentg and Bob Mott, secretary-treasurer. Club sponsors are V. T. Trusler, and M. Wesley Roper. Through the veterans information bureau and their guidance in social events the student veterans returning to school this second semester were helped to re-acquaint themselves to civilian and school life.

The housewives voiced opinions and smiled as if they were really enjoy- ing it all. Many feel that the trailer units have been a "life saver" and all voice the fine, friendly, con- genial attitude of the neighbors. Friendly neighbors and pleasant surround- ings do not spell contentment for all the wives and a few voiced complaints of "miserable", "some dump" and "just a place to stayv. All the families belong to church with the Methodists having the greatest number of members. Vet City is governed for the residents by the residents. At an election held early in the second semester, Walter Phipps was elected Mayor and three councilmen from the three districts of the city were Glenn Martin, Harlan Trennepohl and William Scales. The Council meets regularly and takes action on matters concerning the wel- fare of the little community as a whole.

Winnetgxska was organized in 1391 as an outgrowth of a freshman women's group. The main objective of the organization was the furtherance of social contacts, friendly relationships, and unity among its one hundred members. Meetings are held every Thursday evening in the Student Union. Peggy Block, Winiaetaska president, was elected Queen Peggy Pedagog for the year. Peggy Block, Sue Van Dine, Leona Hargadine, Anne Robinson, Phyllis Leroux, and Marian Sanders were members of Xi Phi. Phyllis Leroux was president of the junior class. Joan Block was president of the freshman class. A formal dinner party and a Spring Party were the outstanding social features of the year. To Miss Ina Borman, assistant rofessor in education, s onsor of Winnetaska P a goes much of the credit for the success of the organization.

The choosing of Miss Kathryn Kayser of the Speech Department as one of the Mu Ep sponsors was the first time in the history of K. S. T.

During the year the membership grew from eleven to forty-four. The social night held every Thursday night in the Student Union furnished entertainment for the members by furnishing playing cards, ping-pong, and dancing with the girls of Winnetaska.

This chapter was first or- ganized on the Emporia State campus in the fall of 1920, and was known as Delta Gamma Rho. On April 7, 1925, Delta Gamma Rho accepted the invitation to become the Iota chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau. The open motto of the sorority is: "Active, self reliant, and trustworthy." The sorority colors are emer- ald and gold. Its official publication is the "Anchor.', This year five of the girls attended the Third District Convention at St. Louis, Missouri, October 12 and 13. Miss Helen Garman, sponsor, drove her car and took the following girls as representatives to the convention: Velma Vlcek, Dorothy Overholt, Joy Branson, Dorothy Price, and Mildred Nelson.

NELLIE HALL f100J Delta Sigma Epsilon became a member of the Association of Edu- cation Sororities in 1917. The nucleus of Epsilon chapter consisted of twenty-six members of the Omega Literary Society of the Kansas State Normal School. On March 21, 1917, the girls walked to Soden's Grove where the services of installation to Delta Sigma Epsilon were held. This installation climaxed the beginning of Epsilon chapter, the fifth chapter to be installed in our national organization. Delta Sigma Epsilon's colors of green and cream predomniated at the preferential dinner entitled "Pron1otion.', Other parties helping carry out a "School Daze" theme were, "Little Red Schoolhousef' and "Box Supper." "Rhapsody in Blue" was the fall pledge party with its setting of black notes, treble elefs, and a large scroll bacligrounded by gold tapes- tries with black notes and blue light decorations that made the theme seem even more realistic.

The school year began with rush week. Thirteen new pledges were added to the rolls after the Preferential Dinner at the Student Union Coffee Shop. In Novem- ber, Founders, Day was celebrated with a buffet supper at the chapter house with the Alumna Club furnishing the food and the program. "Winter Wonderland" was the theme of the Christmas formal given by the pledges and held in the Student Union Ballroom. Approximately forty couples at- tended and danced to the music of Rosalee and Her Music Makers. The Alpha Sigs entertained their mothers with a Christmas party. The pledges furnished the program by singing their original songs. f1041 At the beginning of the second semester, the Alpha Sigs entertained their fathers at the Father-Daughter Dinner. The fathers as well as the daughters always look forward to this occasion. Open house was held for the four fraternities and pleasant evenings were spent dancing, playing cards, singing, and talking. Refreshments were served. No school year is complete without a breakfast for the seniors. The Alpha Sigs got up early, dressed in slacks or shorts and hiked off to Wilson Park for a break- fast prepared out of doors. This is the finale to a grand school year.

Although this house was new to the twenty Tri Sigs who came to live in it this year, it had already established its place in the heart of each Sigma. fioej To be well known on the campus, to keep up our scholastic standards, and to be socially acceptable is the national Sigma Sigma Sigma policy. All this Tri Sigs realize and appreciate. We know that it would not be possible if it were not for the efficiency of the national office located at Clermont, Florida. Locally we owe much to our efficient and firm guide, Mother Sullivan, who cakes care of our financial responsibilities and acts as our gracious chapter hostess, and to Miss Irene De Munn, faculty sponsor, who resumed her role as such after two years leave of absence to serve as a USO Director in Hawaii. 9 9 9 Si ma Si mc: Si mc: The Tri Sigs bane tea as Marjorie Fnncfsfil pours ---- D 'vssed up in ibcir Sunday best, fbr'y're off fo clourvln. . - ,.,...-:- 4 N MW .xt W .. f w' , .Y " 'Q ,W -Y ,-,,.....--f ,,.,...--v t................---,.,.,....----f ..............,...---,,.........-- ..........-..........0--1-----' .........-..........--...........-- ,....--7 ,-, - Y...- ...M-tw. ,Y .. 4,7 ,.,,...v---' ,,...- 1 f107j ef sq Y S ,amy ,Mgt W 3.-Lrg ,f-Wt.,.,,4,R, 3 A: w M Group singing is a pleasant way fo spemf an Ullillfllg ---- from fbe smiles if must have been funny ---- serious co11ce1ztrafi011 Slll'1'07H1tlS Ibis bridge game ---- frying out fbi' latest records in Ibn' game room, it nzusf have been Spike jones.

The thirty-eight members held a open house for each of the fraternities and for Mu Epsilon Nu, the independent men s organization, for the primary purpose of getting acquainted. At each open house, guests were escorted on a tour of the three floors, entertained by dancing in the dining room and front hall, and by playing cards in the living room, and light refreshments of punch and cookies were served. "Holiday Inn" was the theme of the winter formal presented by the pledges in the Student Union Ballroom. The decoration theme duplicated the sets in the show "Holiday Inn." The second semester pledges and actives combined their in genuity and presented the "Sigma Circus,'i a clowning success. An elongated nine foot clown reigned over the dance from his prominent position in the middle of the ballroom. An imitation tent made of crepe paper housed Lee Johnson s band and the dancers.

The final party of the year was the Farewell Party, given by the active chapter in honor of the seniors, held at the Sunset Inn on May 29. Activities of the Kappa Sigma Epsilon chapter were hampered the past year due to the lack of a house, but this was taken care of by the formation of the Kappa Sigma Epsilon Student-Alumni Association, Inc., incorporated for the purpose of purchasing a house. Through the sale of stock in the corporation, both to active members and alumni, the A. H. Gufler residence, a beautiful 24-room brick house located at 612 West Twelfth Avenue, was purchased. Kappa Sigma Epsilon maintained their high standard in leadership and scholarship during the past year.

Similar to the group of students who founded the fraternity, the members who reactivated Phi Delta Chi were war veterans. The fraternity was founded in March, 1921. At the time of its organization, there were three fraternities on the Kansas State Teachers College campusg one scholastic, one social, and one athletic. It was the desire of the founders to have an organization that would embody all three of these virtues. Three of the charter members of the fraternity are on the faculty of the college today-Dr. V.

Plans were made for reactivation of the Tau's by four active members who returned to school the first semester. They are the four above named officers. fizoj The alumni organization held a dinner for the actives and their rushees at the Mit-Way Hotel, November 6. After the dinner the alumni elected officers for the coming year. Dean Haasis, of Marion, was elected president. Active members and rushees adjourned to the house for a smoker and pledge services. Twenty-four men were pledged for the first semester. From this pledge class, six were in the freshman play. Gerald Miller, Glen Litch- field, Dale Boyle, Hugh James, Walter Smith, and Delbert Johnson deserve credit for a job well done. November 16, the Taus and their guests enjoyed a hayrack ride and a Weiner roast. Many of the Sigma Taus participated in the Homecoming Follies, helping the sororities to present their skits. Charles Lonnberg was a feature attraction in the Follies as he played the role of a returning sailor and sang "White Christmas" with the Tri Sigs as a choral background. Several pledges were due to be called to the Armed Forces at the end of the first semester. Virgil Pugh was the first pledge to leave after the Taus were reactivated. The annual pledge party was held January 5, 1946, at the Student Union Ballroom. Actives, alumni, pledges, and guests danced to the music of Rosalie and her Music Makers. The theme of the party was "Diamond Horseshoe Clubn. Alas, the chapter house is all ours again. As the second semester rolled around the Taus resumed possession and with many returning from the service, and with their help social affairs livened up to a great extent.

Election to the society is the highest academic honor granted at Emporia State. Members include those juniors, seniors, and graduate students who have completed six hours of education, have ranked in the upper one-fourth of their class, and have indicated professional ability in their respective vocational fields. Founded at the University of Illinois in 1909, the organization has established one hundred twenty-three institutional chapters and three alumni groups in universities and colleges throughout the United States. Iota chapter at the Kansas Stae Teachers College of Emporia was installed on March 15, 1920. Each year a scholarship is presented by Kappa Delta Pi to a worthy student in the junior or senior class. This student is chosen by members of the society. He must be in the upper tenth of his class and show ability in his chosen field.

Xi Phi was first organized in 1922 under the direction of Dr. Edwin Brown, former instructor of the education department. At the time of the organization, Dr. Brown was director of the memorial campaign, and wishing to give the fund a spirited beginning, and at the same time to inspire members of the alumni to con- tribute generously, he began the campaign on the campus, under the direction of 24 team captains. After the campaign had gotten under way and these team captains with their respective teams had raised over 580,000 toward the memorial fund, Dr. Brown with the urging of W. L. Holtz, a Latin instructor, planned to organize these 24 team captains into a body of student leaders, the Xi Phi fraternity. The plan was approved by President Butcher, and with the aid of C. W. Salswer, Dr. Brown chose 24 students with leadership ability. Only juniors and seniors were eligible to membership. These original rules are still recognized by the organization. This year again Xi Phi has been active in organizing or attempting to organize a memorial drive. Students were polled by members of Xi Phi for their ideas of suitable projects for memorials. Six students were chosen to become members of Xi Phi during the first semester and seven were chosen during the second semester to bring the organization to its full membership of 24 members. Those chosen the first semester were: Helen Frances Graves, Leona Hargadine, Beverle Jordan, Edith McCready, Anne Robinson, and Marian Sanders. Elmer Carpenter, Claudine Decker, Carol Drum, Helen Snyder, George Goebel, and Walter Phipps were chosen during the second semester. Nathan Budd, Bob Stauffer, Ivo Mersmann, and Bob Patterson were veteran returnees to the leadership fraternity. The Xi Phi fraternity published the College Directory as usual and was again required to do the job as a large enrollment of veterans during the second semester greatly increased the student body enrollment. Xi Phi revived the annual Anniversary Ball in honor of the Student Union Anni- versary of its opening. Long acknowledged as the outstanding social event of the year the anniversary ball was discontinued during the war years. With the return of many veterans to the campus Xi Phi decided to sponsor the party. Held May 3, in the Student Union Ballroom, the ball was well attended. IIZSI T he Senior Class of .7945 They ivim mf Yes, through some of the most trying years in the history of our country came the seniors of '46, This year's graduates have great determination and foresight, two of the good qualities which so correctly ear-mark the typical American. Many of the seniors are veterans of World War II who began pursuing a college education several years prior to the war and were on the verge of graduating three and four years ago. These freedom loving men and women left their studies to do jobs so that Emporia State and this great country might live. Emporia State in its first post war year has been a glorious finale for the Class of 1946. Also, this first post war year has been a very happy one for the institution. Many words are necessary to express the sentiments of the administration in seeing so many students in the classrooms again. Traditions are tossed aside when society is ready to do so, and this year's seniors initiated a few changes. The Class of 1946 did not desire the annual Swing Out, believing that there were enough graduation festivities without it. Perhaps the greatest thing initiated on the campus by the seniors was the successful three-day trip to the Ozarks, instead of the traditional "sneak" to a neighboring Kansas city. "They made itl' and now leave Emporia State, their stepping stone to success in the various fields in which they enter. Their devotion to Emporia State was emphasized by the class president in his address at the commencement dinner-"Emporia State is 'our college', regardless of what other institutions we attend in the future."

The Bulletin Thursday! Press day! The Bulletin office is cluttered with more than the usual amount of copy paper and galley proofs. The editor is chewing his pencil, studying the headline chart and trying to write a sensational headline-Q'Students Petition Reform!" The managing editor, printer's ink spotting her nose, searches for errors in the copy before returning the sheet to the linotype machine. The business manager glances in to check his advertisements and to read the copy on "Corky's Cornerv. He smiles as he reads the Kappa Sigs and Pi Kaps press notices. Reporters swarm over the place, in an effort to reach last minute deadlines. A call from the advisor's office sends someone scurrying for the social calendar. Futile digging in the morgue fails to produce needed information and a cub goes lumbering across the campus to get a needed "quote". The editor enters the Sanctum sanctorium with the make-up sheets and Mr. Bush goes to work. The 'lbattle of the bulge" is on with stories too long and too short to fill in the dummy. The burr of the telephone. A summons to the Presidentls office. Hot news! Stories are killed and heads are added, and the editor starts from scratch. And at last the paperls put to bed. Martha Barrett and Peggy Block shared the responsibility of publishing The Bulletin first semester. The veterans took over second semester when Bob Mott assumed the editorship. New policies were adopted and The Bulletin at times resembled the erusading knight of old! Th eschool paper is a vital force in molding campus opinion. "The Bulletin has been cussed and praised, "But it had fun with the heck it raiscd!!"
