After a service of nearly six years, H. O. Pritchard has resigned the presi-
dency of Eureka College. The resignation took effect April l, 1919.
President Pritchard came to the College at a time when a man of wide vis-
ion and high courage was needed, and he has, to a marked degree, displayed these
qualities of leadership. Under his administration, the College has made such gains
in equipment, in endowment, in attendance, and in academic standing as to gratify
the pride of its friends and justify their educational institutions of Illinois and of
the United States.
Three buildings have been added to the equipment, the Presidentls resi-
dence, the Pritchard Gymnasium, and Vennum Science Hall. The Library and
Administration Building has been remodeled, and Lida's Wood and the heating
plant have been improved. The total student attendance has increased 54 per
cent, The attendance of students of collegiate rank has increased 94 per cent.
The latter increase is particularly important, in view of the fact that the prepara-
tory department has been discontinued. Eureka College is now in the first rank of
colleges in Illinois and is also a member of the North Central Association of Col-
leges and Secondary Schools.
When President Pritchard came to Eureka, there was little interest in
athletics. He brought an enthusiasm for football, baseball and basketball,
with the result that the teams of Eureka College have been able to give a good ac-
count of themselves. The record of the College in debate could hardly be better.
An important duty of a college president is to represent his institution before
other educational institutions and to present its claims to its constituency. This
duty has been admirably performed for Eureka College during the past six' years.
Critics have had to give reasons for their statements. Universities have been kept
advised of the progress of the College. Old friends have had their faith renewed
and new friends have been won.
It can be said with truth of President Pritchard that he has done "the
work of a day in its dayf'

Sept. l8, !9!7-So this is Eureka College-and we are freshmen! Well-
"I thank my ma and I thank my pa for sending me to such an institutionn. Here
is hoping that we all may spend four happy years here.
Sept. !9-We are all registered now-quite a number signed up for amor-
ology thoughfmostly laboratory, I think. We lost some of our greenness today-
at least our green-backs.
Oh, yes! I almost forgot our election-Mr. Williams is our President and
Lois Pickett is Secretary and Treasurer. Now we'll stop marking time and watch
us get into the procession!
Sept. 24-College life is great! "Hello-You are Mr. R- I believe?" We
know everybody since the Grind. Why is it called the Grind? Maybe we are
too young to know.
Oct. 5-We surely look like bums-anyone could tell that we have been to
Mackinaw via the hayracks. Wouldn't doubt that we will all have pleasant
dreams tonight-perhaps not the D. Tis., but visions of fruit salads and wieners-
Nine Rahs for Flunk Day!
Oct. 31-At last we've had a real party of our own. You would never have
known the gym-all decorated with cornstalks, pumpkins, and ghosts. That was
the best trip round the world l ever had, but when we got back to the gym-Well!
It didnit seem like this world. And the cider, flavored with essence of kerosene,
seemed unearthly, too.
Nov. I3-My! Do you suppose that we can ever know as much as the juniors
do? That was a real circus-weren't the Siamese twins clever? And the snake
charmer? Not to mention the rope-walker. They would have made l-lagenback
ashamed of himself. '
May 26-Commencement. It seems rather sad to look back over the long
year and realize that our career as freshmen is ended. We have surely learned
that "Experience is a dear school, but fools will learn in no other." l..et's all return
next year and see how it feels to be an upper classman.
Sept. IB, l9l8-Hello, everybody-Yes, we are all back with the exception
of those patriotic ones, of whom we are more than proud. Among those who have
enlisted are Walter Spencer, Bill lcenogle, Garnet Williams, Walter Gibson, and
Glen Dorward. Also, we congratulate those who have entered the S. A. T. C.
Our sophomore company amounts to thirty-three privates now. We are proud
to announce that "Betty" Leonard is our Commander and she will prove what
Women can do in war time,
Oct. 4-Wlnhe mill of the sophomores grinds slowlyf, Translated, this means
that we have just succeeded in entertaining the seniors after many long months. We
hope that they enjoy athletics, or l fear that our indoor track meet was rather out
Jan 5-The last of our series of sophomore parties, This time it was a hard
time party,-and it would have been a hard time for anyone to have had an unen-
joyable evening. Uncle Josh records were rendered free of charge. Gther celeb-
rities Were present, who would have been capable of giving an evening's entertain-
ment equal to the "Kozy".
April Zl-Upon reading over this diary, one might think that we are merely
social butterflies or moths and that we have developed only our wings. But, we beg
to inform you, this is a wrong impression. All the professors will agree that we are
top students, not the assortment often found in small colleges. Also we have learned
to Hparler francais" and to Hhablar espanoln. Not to be bragging but just to
prove the case, we had two sophomores on the regular baskketball team, and we
are as well represented in all forms of athletics. We have been prominent in music-
al activities, such as glee clubs, band, comb chorus, etc.
May the tie which has bound us these two years, tighten so as to keep us in-
separable until the dawn of the Commencement of '2I.
The College Live Wire
What's the best class in college, did l hear you inquire?
Why, the Sophomore, of course! lt's the college live wire!
l say it's illustrious, for in it are those
Who will some day be governor-president,-who knows?
I'll bet you know Betty, our fine leader this year,
And the whole school is proud of our Scotch lassie dear.
Did you hear that a freshman, who's known for his Wit,
Brought a splinter to Lois, and said, "Please Pick-ettn?
And that, through vacation, Ruth's intending to Camp?
Ralph,s stealing a girl from the missions, they say,
Or perhaps he,ll go with her if she answers "yea".
Blanche tickles the ivories, Carl plays the cornet,
Paul comes in with his flute, yes, he is one you have met.
l..illa's glad to give pleasure telling Uncle Josh rhymes,
The Sophomores, you'll own, can furnish some times,
We call for more Coale when the snow clouds appear,
Something everyone needs, even Wilson I hear.
Mother Eve may not be here, but an Eva one sees,
Gpal brings lreland's greetings, "Top 0' the mornin' to yezl
What gives Art delight, a sofa back in a corner,
Perhaps the same would please Abe, for his last name is Horner
Russell honored our class by his Work in debate,
Helped the rest of the team to seal lVlillikin's fate.
George and Clarence are rivals in having you pose,
Bill cautions his parish to beat down soul's foes.
We thought for awhile Ruth Was in the same plight,
lVlargery's president next year of Y. W. C. A.
Buneta got four censored letters one day!
If your debts are unpaid, or your car,s out of Whack,
We'll send you a Dunne or a Toole from our pack.
They say Roland's Slated for an interesting thing,
I suppose it will take place when the sweet lVla-belles
Zeke is leader of yells when our team takes the floor,
The pep he inspires helps to run up the score.
We had two of our Sophies on the Basketball teamg
The way they can play-Oh, Boy! It's a dream!
Mildred needed a rest, so she dropped school awhile,
We'll Welcome her returning to our rank and file.
We,re thinking that Vance will soon quit being Flirt,-
l-ler name ends the list of the Sophomores alert,
Plus the one Who Was detailed to scribble this stuff
And l'm sure you'll agree that l've said quite enough.

Grant us the regard due a race about to become extinct.
We are the last of the line of Preps of the House of I Have
No more shall there be a convening of innocents, so re-
freshingly verdant. No longer shall the Autocracy of the
I-louse-The Upper Classmen, revel in their superiority over
those of this lineage called Preps.
We shall appear again. Wait and see, for, "A col-
lege is not a place where jewels are unearthed, but where
those brought to it are polished."
We may at present be in a state of protoplasm, but great
things of life are slow of growth. Mushrooms spring up over
night, but they are too quick to be substantial. It is impossible
to tell what possibilities lie in the potential students of the pre-
We have had infinite opportunities afforded us through the
privilege of association with our intellectual superiors, and sure-
ly We soak in whatever We can from these invincibles.
The Best Day of All
Written for this Publication by
THOMAS CURTIS CLARK
These are the best days!
Stars were never brighter,
Hearts were never lighterg
Songs of birds and rippling brooklets
Never were more sweetg
There were never fairer flowers
Than those at our feet
In these fair days,
These rare days,
The best days of all.
These are the best days!
Skies were never bluer,
Friends were never truerg
There was never less of sorrow,
More of joy and song,
Than we find beside our pathway
As we trudge along,
In these fair days,
These rare days,
The best days of all.

The Flight of Pegasus
A long time ago, yes, a very long time ago, just as the negro was beginning
to scratch his head in the full realization of his freedom, the students of Eureka
College conceived the idea of a college paper. In l868 the first issue appeared.
It was called the Eureka College Vidette and the editors were S. F. Davidson and
G. W. Sweeny. It was a neat little sheet of eight pages, published twice each
term. Ed. R. Eldridge and Wm. H. Crow were the editors the second year and
O. P. I-lay and B. Radford the third year. The last issue bears the date of
July, I 870.
Following this attempt at journalism, we find no further publications until the
Periclesian and Edmund Burke societies realized the possibilities of such an effort
in crystalizing college spirit, and in giving vent to the literary activities of the stu-
dents, which at that time esem to have been more prolific than during the present
decade. Consequently the need of having a college paper was agitated for several
months, but it appeared impossible to agree upon a name. Some student of Greek
mythology gave vent to his knowledge and suggested the name "Pegasus". Pegasus
of old was the. famous winged horse of Greek fable, tamed and bridled by Athena.
To those who mounted him was given unlimited power. But when Belerophon
tried to fly to l-leaven on the horse's back, he threw him and continued his heaven-
ward course. In the hope that the new enterprise might be endowed with some of
the power and speed of this mythical steed, the name, Pegasus, was given to the
But when the name was chosen, no one knew how to pronounce it. In the
local columns of the second issue we read, "Lost-The pronunciation of the word
Pegasus." This was the subject of many a heated discussion until it was made
the subject of a learned editorial.
The first issue appeared in April, l889. It was a brilliant success-the cover
was of lovely pink! But the flashy exterior concealed a most dignified interior
for the staff was headed by the names of Professor I-Iieronymus and Oliver W.
Stewart. The first editorial says: "The purpose of this paper will be to represent
as nearly as may be the intellectual and moral status of the college, to stimulate
students to do more literary work, to encourage athletics, to cultivate a friendlier
feeling between our Literary Societies, to establish a closer sympathy between our
college and the other colleges of our brotherhood throughout the country, to bring
about a closer relationship with all the colleges in the state, to encourage all that
elevates and refines student life, and discourage that which degrades it, to draw
more students into college, to raise the standard of scholarship, to stir up college
spirit, to encourage everything that will build up the college and be for the best
interests of the students and, finally, to keep out of ruts and abreast of the times."
This has been the purpose of each editorial staff, throughout the thirty years of the
publication of the Pegasus.
The old files of the Pegasus are a record of events which enable the reader to
trace out the college development, as well as many a romance.
In l89l football was introduced with Donnelly, of Princeton fame, as coach.
I-Ie was worthy of all the epithets which were used in the description of the coach at
Old Siwash, but he ,like Pitch's hero, succeeded in putting out a winning team. It
is said that the line averaged two hundred and thirty pounds. Then came the first
class scrap in '95, when the freshmen placed their colors on the tops of all three
buildings and drew the vengeance of the entire school upon them. In the same
year the Lake Forest University Cilee Club sang in Eureka, and the visitors spent
the day trying to find the college yell, but there "Weren't no sech animal." A prize
was immediately offered for the best yell and we have as a result our time honored
"Eu-Wah-Hoo!" which has been the terror of Eureka's enemies, these twenty years
In the meantime Eureka College had been meeting University of Illinois, Chi-
cago University, and the stronger football teams of the state with marked success.
More than once we find records of how Knox, Illinois College, Wesleyan, and
Lombard bowed before the Eureka warriors. l..ida's Wood burned in January
of '94. The old Brooks-Ford mansion formed the north wing of the dormitory and
was ruined in the fire. The year '97-'98 witnessed the wiping out of the college
debt of thirty thousand dollars, and the raising of the endowment to one hundred
Now that we have brought this chronicle down to the twentieth century, we
feel that we are upon familiar ground, and must pass over the years hurriedly.
Professor lf-lieronymus succeeded President Hardin and held that position until his
resignation in l909. Professor Gray then assumed control of the office and re-
mained in that position until Charles E. Underwood became leader of the destinies
of the institution. I-le was followed by President Pritchard in 1913 and we were
fortunate in having him remain until April, l9l9. The outstanding events of this
decade are the securing of the one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars en-
dowment through the work of H. H. Peters in 1909, the erection of the Pritchard
Gymnasium in l9l5, made possible by the influence of I-l. O. Pritchardg and the
building of the Science I-Iall in I9I 7, a gift of F. B. Vennum.
One of the most interesting things in this study of the days of yore as depicted
by the Pegasus is the great array of men who have borne its burdens through the
storms of its thirty years. President Hieronymus, A. E. Corey, Finis ldleman,
L. O. Lehman, P. Lichtenberger, Cl. A. Miller, 0. W. Stewart, Will Shaw,
Ernest Pearson, Emory Ross, and a score of others whose names do honor to
Eureka. Those of recent years no doubt possess the abilities of their predecessors
but have not had time to develop themselves in the work of the world and to stand
out above their fellow men as those of previous years.

If you can pore over the dusty pages of the Pegasus and read of the colleges
of yestertime, with all of the problems, and duties, with all of the activities, which
press so hardly upon us today, Without being filled with a great love for the Old
School and for her noble history, you have not become Worthy of the name of
Eureka and all of the bounties which it has heaped upon you. We of the present
generation little realize how the traditions and customs of our Alma Mater have
been built upon a bed rock of absolute truth and fidelity to the ideals and aims of
its founders. If we realized this fully, we would refrain from any pique or con-
temptuous references to our limitations and would content ourselves with the em-
ployment of that which has been handed down to us, unsullied and pure, the mon-
ument of a great ideal.

In l9l2 a Triangular Debating League was formed between james Milliken
University, Illinois Wesleyan University and Eureka College. A triangular de-
bate is held on the third Friday night of March of each year. Each institution pre-
pares two teams of three debaters each and the same question is debated at the
three institutions on the same evening. The affirmative team debates at home in
In the seven years of the'league's existence, Eureka has held fourteen debates
and of that number she has won ten. For six years President Pritchard has been
the instructor and coach of debating. In that time he has produced twelve teams
and nine of the twelve have carried off victories. At no time has he lost both sides
of the triangular debate, while on the other hand his teams have won both sides of
the contests five years.
The question debated this year was, "Resolved: Present conditions justify
the adoption of universal international free trade."
The affirmative team met Milliken University at Eureka College and won
in a hard fought battle. The negative team met the Wesleyan affirmative team
at Bloomington and won by a unanimous decision of the judges.

Eureka College entered upon a new era in athletics when the services of George
H. Pritchard were secured as coach. The three years of his directorship have been
those of development. Eureka teams have competed in contests of the Little
Nineteen Conference in the last three yars so that colleges better known in ath-
letics have been compelled to reckon with us as they have never done before.
Football, owing to the advent of the S. A. T. C., was a problem. This prob-
lem, however, was more easily taken care of than that growing out of the Spanish
influenza which seemed to follow in the wake of the S. A. T. C. To this last cause
can be attributed the fact that we only played three games, two of them resulting
in a tie, and the third with Wesleyan, in a 6-0 defeat. The game against Lom-
bard is one of special notice because of the fact that Lombard had the champion-
ship team of the l9l 7 season and several of the stars of that team were still in college.
Therefore when we remember that Coach Pritchard developed a team which held
them scoreless, we have reason to feel satisfied. The annual game with Bradley
resulted in a 7-7 tie.
The basketball season was shortened also, because of the S. A. T. C. Prac-
tice usually begins the first week in December, but this year it was compelled to wait
until after the Christmas holidays. The team had to be made up from entirely
new men in the college basketball world since none of last year's famous team was
back, it being scattered over the world in the service of the country.
Eight games made up the season this year. Although the team won but two
of the games all of them were hard fought with no top-heavy scores as is generally
the case in many games. Twelve men remained under the coaching of Mr. Prit-
chard and they clearly showed in all the games, the effort put forth both by the
coach and by each player. Wesleyan and Milliken, the two teams who battled
for the championship, were held to low scores. The season's record follows:
Eureka .. .... I2 Wesleyan . .... . I8
Eureka .. .... I8 Bradley .. . . . . . I6
Eureka . . .... 21 Wesleyan . .... .3I
Eureka . . .... 26 Normal . . . . . . . .24
Eureka .... ..... 2 0 Normal . . . . . . . .30
Eureka . . ..... I7 Milliken . .... .2I
Eureka . . ..... 20 Bradley . . . . . . .22
Eureka . . . . . ...... .24 Augustana .....,. .... . . . .26
The tournament demonstrated fully that in the future Eureka must be watched
in athletics, and especially in basketball. Bradley, our tournament opponent in the
opening game for three years, was very confident, as usual, that Eureka would suc-
comb to their attack. In fact their confidence appeared to be well grounded.
However, in the second half those "long, weird, awkward shots" started hitting
the basket and Bradley met her defeat. This manner of shooting has been charac-
teristic of the Eureka players during the season. Lombard 'had to fall next. but
I, 3 .. . .. 4 - 77 -WE I
again Eureka was given second choice by the press for the tournament. With
Lombard defeated, we entered the semi-finals against Wesleyan, and Eureka met
her first defeat of the tournament. ln this game Eureka forwards placed almost
three to one shots at the basket and so many just failed by a slight twist that Wes-
leyan was able to hold their lead until the final report of the gun. Lombard was
our opponent for the second time in the tournament, to decide third place. This
game was a thriller all the way through for at no time was the outcome certain.
However, when the final second arrived Eureka led and thereby third place was
won. The tournament scores were:
Eureka ...................... 27 Bradley . . .... 17
Eureka ...ZZ Lombard ....l4
Eureka . . . .. .21 Wesleyan . . . . . .39
Eureka ...................... 34 Lombard ..................... 32
Lane, forward, was the highest scoring man of the tournament and he, by the
selection of the coaches, was put upon the all-star team. For three years Eureka
men have held the highest scoring record of the tournament. Crocker, guard, was
chosen upon the second team by the coaches. From every standpoint, basketball
this year has been most successful.
The baseball season was a very successful season, this year, the boys fought
hard and won victories. Next year promises to be one of the best in our history.

In keeping with the spirit of the year, physical training for girls started at
six o'clock in the early morning with setting-up exercises and brisk marching, under
the direction of lVIiss Whittet and Lieutenant I-Iall.
Training for girls this year has consisted of athletics, calisthenics, and rythmic
work. The girls fond of sports have found ample enjoyment and recreation in the
hockey games of the early fall, basketball in the winter, and indoor baseball in the
spring. The majority of girls, however, show preference for the indoor gymna-
sium classes. The annual exhibition of the girls' work came late this year, due to
the intereferences of the S. A. T. C. and the influenza. Nevertheless, the pro-
gram of March ll, showed more intense and careful work than that of previous
The pageant and the lVIay-pole exercises have come to be a unique feature
of the May Festival. The pageant this spring was of unusual interest as it por-
trayed Eureka College through its progress, from Walnut Grove Academy of
l848 to the present day. The May-pole exercises were in accordance with the
old English custom of the time of I-Ienry VIII.

Sic Transit Gloria Mundi
The embryo vet has been replaced by plain civilian folk,
The barracks are cold and empty and the campus devoid of smoke,
l-leaped in the hollows of the grove, the twigs and paper stay,
Because there are no B. O's. to stow them safe away.
The privates and non-coms are gone, and from the gym, the Lieutsg
No more in Burgess Hall are seen the prints of muddy boots,
No more shall streams come trickling down upon the Profs, below.
The B. O. and his mop are gone, but still his efforts show.
And now when comes the morning red, as still such mornings dawn,
We do not see the B. V. D's. and blankets on the lawn,
But in their place an empty line across our path is stretched,
Which calls to mind the days they "Flu", all shot up and so wretched.
uShedem" is changed to "board iemn now, and dates are a plenteous fruit
For conversing is not limited to a sweet smile and salute.
When Henry sounds his whistle and all rush to the chow,
They get along without K. Pis. as well as they know how.
They miss Jim, too, and say it's almost their undoing,
To have to mind their manners, instead of just chew-chewing.
Where are the boys-the soldier boys who lately marched and sang?
ln crooked ranks, with raucous throats, until the campus rang?
Alas, one is a benedictg he loved not liberty,
A few are scattered here and there, while many came back, you see.
The bugle notes no longer sound in the early morningis glow
The canteen and the mess hall had closed up long ago,
Still S. and R. C. P. and I-I. W. I-I. as well,
Kept lingering longer, waiting round, and felt like saying --
And, then, when came the papers which freed those fellows, too,
They donned their very swellest cits, and left town P. D.
lVlethinks l hear the bugle call retreat, in notes so shrillg
l see the doughboys coming and hear Top Sergeant Bill
Give his command in clarion tones, while music adds its thrill.
I see "Old Cloryn lowered, its folds by sunset kissed,
l hear their merry laughter as soon as they are usmissedn.
We wish you could be with us, when the maple shoots its leaf,
We weep, that a thing so lovely, should have a life so brief.
But it is our conviction, say of it what you will,
'Twas the S. A. T. C. of U. S. A. that frightened Kaiser Bill.
S. A. T. C. Section
C. I-I. WILHELM, AssocIATE EDITOR.
The great World War developed many wonderful ideas, but one of the great-
est and most progressive of all was that of the Student Army Training Corps. Not,
of course, because the men in that Corps won any great battle or showed any re-
markable courageg they had no opportunity to do so. Time and circumstances
prevented a real testing of the theory, but nevertheless we can say it was one of the
greatest ideas growing out of the war. This, too, in spite of the general feeling of
discouragement and even disgust which all who had anything to do with the S. A.
T. C. manifested toward it. With regard to this feeling, it can only be said that
a lengthier trial of the idea would probably have brought about readjustments and
the removal of many, if not all, of the undesirable and impractical features.
With regard, now, to the Eureka Unit S. A. T. C., especially, we can feel
highly satisfied with results attained here. Comparison shows that Eurekais mili-
tary record was among the very highest. We have talked with members of many
other units since demobilization has been taking place, and we find that the gen-
eral experience of the other colleges and universities with the S. A. T. C. was far
less satisfactory than ours. "Rough-housing" after taps, disorder, and insubordi-
nation were the general rule everywhere, while at Eureka there was order, disci-
pline, and quiet observance of rules and orders. Of course, we had numerous cases
of neglect and carelessness, but the cases of disobedience were rare, and never such
as to assume any importance. In other S. A. T. C. Camps there were many fla-
grant cases of general disobedience, little short of open riot, cases of which the par-
ticipants may well be ashamed. Our student-soldiers made a record for manly
self control of which all may well be proud.
Much is due, of course, to officers. Again comparing notes with other camps,
we find that those camps which had disorder had poor or insufficient officers. We
must feel that our good record here reflects notionly a manly company of privates,
but also a soldierly personnel of officers. Therefore, we present first of all an ap-
preciation of our officers by one of the privates.
Major Leffel was not with us long enough for us to get to know him very
personally, but the effect of his work was seen by us sufficiently that we knew him
to be a real soldier, and well deserving his high commission. We liked the way he
snapped out his commands the few times he did have us in charge. Many a one
of us has said, "I think I'd like training under the Major." -
"The Loot", with his cheeriness imported direct from the south, made us like
him the very first time we saw him. We cannot blame him, a southerner, that he
lost his heart to the Eureka girls. We held it against him when we were under
his command, but now that it is all over we can afford to be generous. But Lieut-
enant Hall was a soldier of whom his Uncle Sam could well be proud. We sus-
pected that when first we saw him saluteg we were sure of it when he began to train
us. There never was a better drill-master. Nor was there ever a better disciplinar-
ian. We chafed under his strict discipline at the time, but now we feel glad that
he was strict.
Of a slightly different sort was Lieutenant Potts. ln him we found excep-
tional capabilities in drilling, but he was so little removed from school days himself
that he could not help making himself a little more like one of the men. He cer-
tainly was popular. All of us, both fellows and girls, liked our ex-football player.
' As for our own Lieutenant Smith, his position was not one to be envied. Not
many men have put under the strain of training soldiers after only one month of
soldier's life. I-le knew all about red tape, though, and any man who can keep up
with Uncle Sam at that has a hard job before him. It wasn't only because our
Lieutenant-Professor attended to our being inducted, that we loved him, nor even
because he had charge of getting out of the daily pay-rolls, nor yet because he had
charge of getting our discharges to us. It was more just because of the qualities in
him which Eureka students had found lovable before ever they became soldiers
under him, and which they have rejoicedito find are still there, now that they have
become students again. We are glad that the military barriers which had sepa-
rated us from free association with Professor Smith have been broken down.
Next, with the assistance of a couple more privates we are going to put in a
good word for the non-coms, and we are certain that if the reader knew the great
trouble we were put to to find any of the privates who were willing so to perjure
themselves, he would not be unwilling to read this contribution. We must remem-
ber that hatred for the non-com is proverbial, that the cause of such hatred lies
more in the necessities of his position than himself, yes, and partly in the privates' own
carelessness. "Never again", is the common declaration of our non-coms. But,
we had agreed to let the privates do the talking.
It's bad enough to be around a fellow with Wilhelm for a name, but to have
to take orders from that fellow is adding insult to injury. When you say "S, A. T.
C." to me, all I can see is that Top Sergeant with his big mouth. When he talked
you couldn't see his face, and when he smiled his ears almost had to be set back.
There we'd stand shivering in the cold night air just before study time. "At Ease",
he'd yell, and then would come one of his choice lectures on how, what, when, and
where to do. Confining to the campus, extra duty, and depriving of privileges was
his specialty. Then there was the Supply Sergeant-another big crab. And as
for the Line Sergeants, they were all pretty swelled up on thmselves, and they didn't
know any more about it than we privates did.
But say, the perspective of time does wonders. We seen now that our grouchy
little top sergeant had more to try his patience than George Washington did the

time he swore. We're beginning to see that he and the old Supply Sergeant and the
Line Sergeants aren't such a bad sort after all. We notice that since the responsi-
bilities of officers aren't interfering they seem to be making good friends of the fel-
lows Who used to hate them. Then we've been hearing stories of how they do it
in a regular army camp, and they make us feel that We got off pretty easy for the
most part. We have to admit that appointments of this sort were made because
of recognition of ability. It was no small distinction to have received a non-com's

A Girls' Eye View of the S. A. T. C.
Eureka, Illinois, October l5, l9l9.
Have you heard that Jack got into the S. A. T. C. here? You should see
him! I-Ie looks just grand in his khaki. Of course, the coat doesn't fit him very
well, the trousers and coat are not the same shade, and his hat has not yet arrived,
but he looks so noble that I can scarcely keep from crying when I think about it.
I know you will be interested to hear that he has received the commission of
K. P. and he's been here only Iwo days. Think of it! I don't know exactly what
his duties are, but I am not surprised that he should receive notice so soon, for where-
ever he goes he is always recognized as an unusual fellow.
Do you know that when I meet Jack on the campus all he is allowed to do is
to salute! just think of it! Jack being obliged to pass me by with a frigid salute!
We make up for it, however, by writing pages and pages every day. Jack keeps
telling me to be patient, that he will soon be a captain instead of a K. P. I can
hardly wait, Carol! I imagine now that I can hear: 'iAllow me to introduce
lVlrs. Jinks, the wife of Captain Jack links." Oh, joy, Carol, don't you envy me?
These dapper Lieutenants that go strutting around the campus as if they owned
the earth, make me pretty tired. They're always down in the canteen, talking with
the girls, while Jack and the rest of the boys that we are wild to get a word with
are not allowed to speak to us. Some of the girls think the Lieutenants are hand-
some, but honest to goodness it's my opinion fand I'm sure I'm unprejudiced in the
matterj that not one of them is nearly so good loking as Jack.
Say, do you know fand this is just between you and me, Carolj, if it weren't
for Jack I woulcln't stay on this campus for a day. This is surely a man's min-
iature world. Girls donit count for anything. The only thing they furnish is sub-
ject matter for the ladies of the town to talk about and the preacher and the dean
to worry about. Everything is planned to fit in withthe soldier and his program.
Believe me, I feel like wearing a veil a la Turk.
The faculty acts so unreasonable this year. The only time we dare talk
with the boys is while we are in the class room and those pesky old profs invariably
take up the whole hour discussing some unimportant thing like the destruction of the
industries and cathedrals in northern France. And when we have so much to say
that is really important! I have often wondered why college professors are such
tiresome folks. I am sure you have noticed that they are, Carol.
When Jack and I do have a date there is no satisfaction in it. Right in the
midst of the most interesting sentence of a conversation on the most interesting of
all subjects, ,lack looks at his watch and literally tears himself away. Since I
have had to stand some of these things which militarism imposes, I'm strong for
doing away with militarism.
You know, I can't sleep nights for worrying about Jack. When he gets
lows who used to hate them. Then we've been hearing stories of how they do it
and the echo of his own voice taunting him. I was talking about this very matter
to the C. O. the other day and the fine compliment he gave "my soldier" was very
reassuring. I-le said, "Don't you worry about Jack. Why, if his head were shot
off he'd never say a word about it." I tell you, it's mighty fine to know that other
folks appreciate his courage. You know, I just dearly love that C. O. ever since
he said that.
Why, bless me, Carol, there is Jack this minute just outside the library win-
dow. I-le's picking up bits of paper and sticks around the campus. A spirit of
industry and self-abasement like that is so rare that I have a glimmer of a feeling
that I shall some day be introduced as the wife of General Jinks. I'll run down
to the porch so he can see me and know that I appreciate his noble patriotism, so
With lots of love,

A View of the S. A. T. C. From the Professoris
Of course, we all anticipated the arrival of the S. A. T. C. boys with en-
thusiasm, for were they not to save Uncle Sam and world from the wicked designs
of Kaiser Bill? We welcomed them with our broadest smile and their lieutenants
with a most reverent bow.
We watched with sympathy the first attempts of the boys to stand erect and
to form a straight row, wondering whether they would ever be able to do it. Then
one great day their rifles came. I never liked to cross the campus after that, for
I had never been near a gun before. I could see that a good number of the boys
hadn't either. I could tell by the way they handled their guns that they did not
realize that they could go off.
The soldiers were supposed to study after their military duties were done.
Indeed, they were called "student"-soldiers. I never found out why, and wonder
whether my colleagues did. When I asked about "today's lessonw, the invariable
answer was "Not prepared", and the excuse, HK. P." or MC. Q." or HB. Of' or
like cryptic expressions. I knew that interference with the efficiency of the U. S.
army is punishable with imprisonment, so I desisted from further demands on the
time of men who had to attend to its mysterious duties. One day an inspector called
on me and told me what the soldiers in my class were supposed to know, and of
my responsibility. I-Ie would have visited a class of S. A. T. C. men. Fortunate-
ly, they were at the time victims of one of their numerous vaccinations, and fas was
so often the case, "confined to quarters". The inspector had to visit a girls' class
instead and he formed an estimate of the boys' knowledge from the recitation there.
That was a stroke of great good luck.
President Pritchard looked very sober and serious in those days. There
never was a college president so little inclined to autocracy as he, but even the
kindliest of potentates does not like to share his power. Of course, the man in
khaki was very polite, and never executed an order without allowing our presi-
dent or the honorable faculty to approve it. But the twinkle in his eye and the mis-
chievous smile not only dethroned the "Queen of Shedomn, but also caused the Most
I-ligh to lose some of his authority.
We would have been amused at the boys' attempts at housekeeping had it not
been for the seriousness of it. They attended to all household affairs except the
cooking. In a lucid moment the authors of the scheme recognized that this would
be dangerous. The boys certainly had strengthening food, if the force with which
they threw their cots about was any indication. We teachers were hoarse all day
from trying to drown out the noise. It seemed the boys must be practicing hand-
grenade throwing, using cots for grenades. The amount of water they carried to
I -.--ai-..--11-ii 7 --W - ' ' I
mop those floors! It came splashing down on students and teacher right in front
of the only good piece of blackboard in the room. We were kept away from the
other black boards by piles of boxes which, according to the sergeant, had to be just
there. I often wondered about the kind of military exercises they were performing
over our heads, but the fear of what I might encounter kept me from personal in-
vestigation. The halls were flooded every day by the B. O. who grumbled when
I complimented him on his zeal for cleanliness. These soldiers also nursed the
"flu" victims, who, however, escaped with the lives in spite of this. It was a won-
derful sight which greeted our eyes every morning as we crossed the campus, the
bed covers spread over the lawns and strung across the walks. Indeed, the boys
were doing all their housekeeping, and it looked just like it.
At last the eleventh of November rolled around and brought an end to the war
and the S. A. T. C. This time we all walked with the boys in parade, only the
lieutenants were on horseback. Looking at one of them I wondered whether he
was better acquainted with horses than I with rifles. Some boys thought it hard to
go back to so monotonous a thing as farming or studying, but we teachers welcomed
peace and a time with less shocks and thrills. We gave our best farewell to those
who left, and our best wishes to those who stayed, but even yet we miss the bugle's
blast, and the fluttering flag, and the jolly singing of the marching lads in khaki.
E. 0. B.
How the S. A. T. C. Looked to the Officers
Properly speaking, there was no one point of view of the S. A. T. C. which
could be termed the officers' point of view, for their attitudes varied as greatly as
did the types of officers with which the S. A. T. C. was infested. First there was
the extra-hard-boiled, regular army officer, retired or washed ashore by the tide of
chance which always operates in such mamoth organizations as the army. To him
the tameness of the whole thing must have been soporific. No wonder he sought
diversion by baiting the college president and faculty. Then there was the young
lawyer-lieutenant type who, at the first call from the officers' training camp, took
down his shingle and spent three months at hard training in preparation for the
march to Berlin, only to be side-tracked indefinitely in some bullet-proof grove of
Academia. To him the S. A. T. C. must have appeared a sinecure consisting of
the much revered constitutional, a hearty breakfast, an excursion to the drill field,
and then a day of liesure in which to compose the alibi he is to give to his grand-
children when they ask for the stories of the battles he has fought and won. Then,
lastly, there was the "Proftenant,'-the professor who wore the apparel of a lieut-
enant chiefly because of the great scarcity of officer material of any and all kinds.
To him the S. A. T. C. was an interminable series of anomalous situations,
ranging all the way from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Consider the sublimity of encountering as a private one of those extremely demo-
cratic, pestiferous nuisances found in every student body who has tried as a student
to offset slovenly work in your courses by coming up and slapping you on the back
and greeting you with, "Howdy, Prof!" Imagine the immeasurable joy of ap-
proaching such a person when he must stand at attention with lips necessarily sealed.
Then again consider the absurdity of overtaking as a private one of the many
with whom as a student you have welcomed a cordial friendship, and to prove to him
that he is a creature of meaner mold. Every time he observes one of these trappings
of medieval aristocracy, you fancy you can hear him mutter something short but
forceful, and you fain would shout, "Same hereln
But, seriously, the following observations, though perhaps trite and obvious,
will probably indicate something of the attitude which all the officers of our local
unit had toward it. They felt that the boys of the unit were keen and capable, and
would have developed into excellent officers. Some of them were Hhlown in by the
draft", and had neither the preparation nor the inclination to enter into the spirit
of this or any other college. Others who were capable of good academic work found
the military more alluring, and sacrificed their academic work for it. All were
more or less disturbed by the influenza epidemic, the war spirit permeating the at-
mosphere, and the general confusion which inevitably accompanies the beginning
of any innovation as unconventional as this conjugal cavort of Mars and Minerva.

The college administration, faculty, and co-eds were long-suffering and made noble
efforts to adjust themselves to the situation. These efforts the oflicers recognized and
appreciated. The great regret is that the experiment could not have continued
long enough to allow the opportunity of weeding out the unfit, and of making a bet'
ter adjustment of facilities for study. Under a fair trial the results might have war-
ranted the continuance of this means of developing oflicers of both military experi-
ence and intelligence, the scarcity of which commodity was painfully evident through-
out the War.

The S. A. T. C. as Seen From the Ranks
Finally, having given such varying views of the S. A.
T. C. as those of the girl-student, the faculty, and the officer,
we thought to present the private's view of the matter. Accord-
ingly, we picked out a typical student-soldier and secured an in-
terview. This, however, only after great effort, for the individ-
ual seemed terribly reluctant to speak on the subject. Finally
he became angered, and as his anger rose his eloquence in-
creased. We would make this one criticism of his dictiong it
was limited too closely to a branch of the language not popular
in polite circles. We can make no criticism other than this, for
his language was certainly plentiful, expressive, emphatic, vivid,
freally lividj , and concise. Unfortunately, so much of the arti-
cle has been deleted by the censor that what remains of it is
Worthless for publication. However, we should be very glad
to refer to this young man anyone who desires to become ac-
quainted with a privateis View of the S. A. T. C. He is well
able to speak on the subject. Having spent most of his Sun-
days in charge of quarters, he had ample opportunity to study
the matter, as well as the language with which to describe it.
The War of 1935
On December 10, 1918, the distinguished Eureka College S. A. T. C. unit
met its fate at the hands of the discharging staff of our United States Government.
lVlany were the possibilities of this noble little army and heavy was the loss to our
nation's fighting strength when we finally were disbanded. Many of the wisest
men have questioned the somewhat sudden ending of the great world war, which,
though ending in an inevitable practical surrender on the part of the Boche, seemed
to come somewhat unexpectedly. It has often been wondered whether Boche spys
saw the progress of the S. A. T. C. units, for there lay the coming slow but sure
death blow for the l-lun. It is not to be wondered that such a coming group of
fiery, dashing young war dogs as comprised the Eureka unit should cause a hasty
decision on the part of the enemy. It was the enemyls opportunity to cease hostil-
ities and avoid total destruction at the cold hands of our brilliant army and luckily
for them some unknown intellectual wave carried them for once to a wise decision.
Surely it was a wise decision, for we shudder to think how our Eureka men would
have been forced to handle them in our engagements overseas.
Let us turn our eyes inward and see the visions of the inevitable outcome of
our fearless S. A. T. C. unit. We have seen the true ending of this great world
war and now let us imagine our Eureka unit as it remains intact through years of
gallant service. Year by year our military efficiency has increased until at last
having followed all academic and military undertakings to perfection we are recog-
nized by the highest inspecting army officials as the most trim and complete human
fighting machine ever organized. But now, in due appreciation of our strength, but
in lack of our further services, we are discharged, and all depart with sad farewells
to our homes, many taking home as wives, l..ida's Wood girls.
True to their training, these discharged men were soon in the buzzing army
of industry and the ensuing years of peace are beginning to make the gallant Eure-
ka College S. A. T. C. unit only a glad memory. ln these continuing years of pre-
War life our distinguished Lieutenant Potts has become a part of the war machine
in Washington. The natty Lieutenant I-lall had immediately returned-to civilian
life, and, having bid farewell to each one of his men as well as many members of
the G. A. T. C., had gone into a career of journalism.
But now another great world shock comes to break the wings of the settled
dove of peace. It is the year 1935, and again we must meet the old enemy of sev-
enteen years ago on the great battlefield. The United States has a population of
trained army men but the point for decision in Washington is the choosing of the
best men to go immediately across the waters. In Washington still remains some of
the war officials who read the records of 1918, and immediately to their minds comes
the Eureka College unit. The possibility seems almost futile, but Mr. Hall receives
a government order to attempt to reorganize the courageous S. A. T. S. unit of
Eureka. Through persistent effort his attempt was rewarded, and on July 4th, l935,
the Eureka College S. A. T. C. unit stands to a man on the same old campus as in
the days of l9l8. Before them stands the same Lieutenant Hall announcing their
return to army life and the overseas trip to begin on the morrow. Two days later
we arrive by aeroplane as among the first of the overseas men. Immediately we
rush to meet the enemy. Concealed in newly dug trenches seven hours later, our
men wait the oncoming enemy, As we wait, deathly quiet, Lieutenant Hall passes
along muttering words of courage to the men. We are actually in the first line
trenches and awaiting the crawling forms of the enemy advancing in the dark not
far away. We are warned to use heavy explosives and machine guns, but every
man feels that he can outfight the enemy through the mere use of the excellent bay-
onet drill which we received and remembered under Lieutenant Potts. Finally
Lieutenant Hall consents, in defiance of the extreme peril, to use the bayonet method
of attack. Being wholly unaware of our presence the enemy comes on, and soon
the great encounter is to take place. It is their best army, which we must meet, and
still on they come. Now every one of our men is on his toes, for they are only
one hundred yards away. We know we are fighting seemingly impossible odds,
for they outnumber us twenty to one, but we stand quiet till suddenly the shadows
of their foremost fall before us. Instantly the dark night, silent but for the stamp
of the enemy's feet, is pierced by the shrieking order of Lieutenant Hall.
"Charge, men! Charge ABSOLUTELY!"
All of our men seem dazed a moment, but on hearing his final word "absolute-
ly", our strength redoubles and we dash out of the trench into the midst of the foe.
Soon after, the scene is again deadly quiet. We have slain them to a man.
The shock of this introductory defeat is so horrible to the enemy's country
that they plead for peace and two years later we are home again living ordinary

King Solomon and His Views
I KINGS, I 0 130-60
Now it happened on a day when the elders of Israel and all the heads of the
tribes, the princes of the fathers' houses of the children of Israel, were assembled
unto King Solomon in Jerusalem, that Solomon spake unto them in this Wise: I-Iear
me, oh elders of Israel, and give ear, oh sons of Jacob. Lo, these many years have
I judged you and ruled over you, and Jehovah hath prospered me so that I have
much gold and many wives. But the daughters of Israel delight me no more. I
will have no more of the almond-eyed doll-babies and black-haired Rebelcahs of
Israel. I have heard tales of the fair land of Yewreekah, far to the north, a land
teeming with eyes blue as the sea, and hair as the gold of Ophir. Thither will
I hie myself and take of the fairest of the daughters of the land. Yea, I shall take
them unto my bosom.
So, on a day when business in the courts was slack, Solomon locked up his
harem and set out for the land of Yewreekah, the land of fair dames. And unto
the land of Yewreekah he came. Now the damsels of Yewreelcah had heard of
the coming of Solomon, yea, the fame thereof had been spread abroad through
the land. Then came forth the daughters of the land bedecked with their fairest
ornaments unto the streets of the city, that they might please Solomon, and that they
might seem fair in his eyes. And Solomon looked upon the daughters of the land
of Yewreekah, and he saith unto himself, Never have I seen such fair Janes, no,
not in all the land of Israel. And he caused an offering of sweet incense to be
offered up to the memory of his Uncle Sam, by whose help he had been brought
Then saith Solomon unto himself, Now shall I show off before these maidens,
and I shall cause their eyes to sparkle at the sight which I shall show them. Then
he caused Kharl, son of Wilhelm, captain of his hosts, to come before him, and he
saith unto him, Knowest thou how to form the company? And he answereth, Yea,
my lord, and if I have found favor in thy sight, permit that I form the company for
Thee. And because Kharel was a mighty man of great valour, and wore the uni-
form of his Uncle Sam, he permitted him to form the company. Then would you
have seen the eyes of the young maids sparkle, as Solomon stood before the com-
pany and spoke words of wisdom and courage to his men. And he caused the
banner of his Uncle Sam to be brought, and he caused the trumpets to blow. Then
saith he unto Kharel, the captain of his hosts, bid the hosts to go unto Chap-el, and
there shall I read unto them the wise words of my Uncle Sam. And it came to
pass that after they had come to Chap-el, and the hosts of Israel stood at attention,
that, lo, two of the mighty men of valour fainted dead away as they beheld the
glory of Solomon. Thus did Solomon establish himself in the land of Yewreekah,
even according to all these words did he.
Now it came to pass on a day as Solomon sat upon his throne, that, behold,
a man came out of the camp of the hosts of Israel, with his clothes rent, and earth
upon his head: and so it was, when he came to Solomon, that he fell to the earth
and did obeisance. And Solomon saith unto him, Whence comest thou? And he
said unto him, Out of the camp of Israel, and behold, I saw the fairest of the
daughters of the land, even the one whom thou thyself lovest the most. And be-
hold, and one of the captains over eight did speak unto her and walked with her
through the camp. Then Solomon took hold of his clothes, and rent them, and
likewise all the men that were with him: and they mourned and wept, and fasted
until even. Then was the great wisdom of Solomon seen in the land for he saith,
I shall cut out all competition, that I may have the fairest of these maidens for
myself. And Solomon caused a decree to go out through all the camp that no
man should speak to any of the daughters of the land excepting those who bore the
bar of gold upon the shoulder and the leather puts about their loins. Now there
was one of the trumpeter of Solomon's hosts, Kharel, who is called Vissering, a
mighty man of valour, and he dared the wrath of Solomon, for he saith, Now will
I talk unto one of these fair maidens and she shall delight my heart, for I think l
can get by with this stuff. But it happened that even as he talked with her that
behold, Solomon cometh up behind him and beheld him talking to the damsel.
And Solomon was full of wrath, and he said, Now will I show my power in the land
of Yewreekah, and I shall cause all men to stand in awe of the King. And he
caused Kharel, the son of Wilhelm, captain of his hosts, to stand before him. And
.g 1 : n "fn 1
he told Kharel of what had come to pass. Andi he rent his clothes and smote his
chest, and he wept before the King. Then saith he, Surely this man is worthy of
death, because he hath set at nought the wise decree of my Lord the King. But be-
hold, my Lord, this man who hath done this thing is a mighty trumpeter and our
band is mighty slim as it is. May it seem good, therefore, to my Lord the King, that
this man should live. Therefore saith Solomon, That ye may know that I am a
merciful and just king, be it even as thou hast said, only see thou that he be bust
ffor behold, this trumpeter was also a captain over eightj, and cause him to work
among the pots on the next Sabbath Day. Then was it done according to the
word of Solomon, and the fame thereof went abroad through all the land, and the
name of the King was held in awe.
Now Solomon was want often to go to the place where the young maidens of
the land were want to come together to listen to the teachings of Ruth, she who
knew more than all the women of the land concerning the making of savoury meat
and of fine cakes. There did Solomon love to go, that he might eat of their hands.
Then after he had eaten, the maidens would dance for him. And behold, Solomon
also taught the maidens a dance whereby they might dance with him, and they
counted it high honor to be permitted to dance with the King. It also delighted
the King to go to the place in that land which is called the Wood, where abode
many of the daughters of the land. And it delighted the King to permit that his
mighty men of valour should be permitted in the Wood three nights out of the seven,
But the other four nights, saith he, are mine and in them let no man come near the
But it troubled the King that he had no way of talking to the maidens during
the hours of light, but only after that the sun had set. Then the king bethought
him of a wise scheme by which the fairest of the maidens might come often to the
camp. Now it happened in this wise. The King caused them to bring before him
Jessie, who was head over all the women of the place. And he said unto her, Be-
holdest thou not that my men are fainitng and hungry for food? For behold the
man called Jim who provides food for my men is not able to keep up with such great
appetites. Now, if thou wilt but provide a market place, and cause the maidens
of the land to bring in things eatable in the sight of man, behold, my men shall
come often to eat and to look upon the fair maidens, and thou and I shalt be rich.
So Jessie called unto her the maidens, all who would come, and they caused a
place to be set aside for a market place fnow the place was called Khanteenj.
Here the maidens would come together with all things which delight the stomach
of man fonly cigarettes and tobacco brought they not, for they feared Prexy, the
baal of that landl. And there would the men come often, for they were hungry,
and there would they buy of the maidens, and gaze upon their fair faces. But
more often than any of his men was Solomon to be found there: yea, at any time
of day, even until the time that he was want to go to the place that was called the
Wood, was he to be found there: And Solomon called unto his one of his stewards,
he who is called Potts, and he saith unto him, Because thou hast been faithful and
hast found favour in the eyes of the King, now, behold, thou also shalt be with me
in the market place which they call the Khanteen, that thou mayest be with me
always, to gaze upon the faces of the fair maidens, and that thou mayest talk with
And it came to pass after that the King had caused the market place to be
established, behold, there were some of the maidens who complained, saying, We
also would like to parade by twos and by fours. Try us and see if we cannot do
squads right and squads left as good as thine own hosts. Make us even as thy
mighty men of valour. Now Solomon was wise, and he saw that this was even
better than the market place for being with the maidens. And the King thought
unto himself, Verily I have made a hit with these damsels, for I perceive that they
are wild about me. Therefore the King caused a proclamation to go out through
all the land that the maiden who would would be beautiful must take plenty of ex-
ercise, for only by so doing will her cheeks be as the rose of Sharon. Therefore
saith the king, come ye unto the court that is before the Wood every morning be-
fore the sun riseth, and there will we do squads right and squads left, that ye may
be beautiful. So in the day appointed there came unto the King a vast throng of
maidens, a multitude which no man could number. And they came there often
at the appointed time to do squads right and squads left for the King. And the
King appointed a sign whereby they might be known. Now the sign was four
words in the language of the land, which were, Jee Ai Tee Cee, which, being in-
terpreted, is, Good-night, are they crazy? For, said Solomon, this is what the
king's army shall say when it is told them what the maidens of the land have done.
In those days the king loved to parade at the head of his hosts before the place
which is called the Wood. And the eyes of the maidens would sparkle as they
would see the gold ornaments on his shoulders shine. But the King said, Lest they
should think me no better than a steward ffor behold, the King's stewards, Potts
and Smith, also wore the gold shoulder ornamentsl, behold, bring me silver orna-
ments for my shoulders. And all the daughters of Yewreekah gazed upon the
silver ornaments in rapture, and they held them finer far than gold ornaments. Now,
on a day appointed, the king and his two stewards, Potts and Smith, rodeithrough
the city streets upon fine nags, and all the hosts of the King paraded behind the King.
And Solomon said unto himself, Behold how fine a showing I make with my fine
nag and all my armies. And when the people of the land saw all the glory of
Solomon, and his fine nag, and his silver ornaments, and his mighty men of valour,
behold they shouted with a mighty shout. So great was the shout that the fine
nags were frightened thereat. But the thing delighted the heart of the King, for
he said, These people know a good thing when they see it. So the King said, Let
the young men arise and play before the people. Then they arose and did many
mighty stunts before the people that day, of marching, and squads right and squads
After this manner did King Solomon in the land of Yewreekah.

The Book of Plague
l. And lo, there was a plague in the land of Your-eek-a, which is in the
state of Illinois.
2. And the people were sorely vexed, and each man called upon his brother,
saying, Comfort me.
3. And behold the whole country cried aloud to Dr. Barker and to Dr.
Nickell, who were trained in the art of healing.
4. This was in the first part of the eleventh month of the year nineteen
5. And straightway, when they had called unto them the doctors, and and
had made sacrifice unto God
6. by way of penance, for things that they had done before they were pun-
ished with the plague,
7. they became healed.
8. Now upon the first day of the week, in the morning, about thirteen boys
of the S. A. T. C. hospital were released.
9. Whereas only a slight case or two were reported.
l0. In these days did the girls of the college which is called Your-eek-a Hee
to the Wood, which is called after Lida, and which is ruled over by Lydia.
l l. Many of the girls were sorely vexed with the plague.
l2. And those who were spared by the plague busied themselves with nurs
ing, laundry Work, and sundry other domestic duties.

"THE POST EXCHANGE CANTEENU K1 kv t
Hot doughnuts! l-lot coffee! How good that sign looked on some of those
chilly Saturday mornings after We had stood at Attention for nearly an hour with
the Loots and Sergeants giving us the once over and the up and down! The only
objection against the coffee and doughnuts was that they brought up troublesome
memories of home. Then, after a hard drill some sunshiny day, when we came
in hot and tired, how refreshing that banana split was! Then, too, the canteen
made such a lovely, quiet retreat where a fellow could go after standing at Re-
treat, where he could spend a few minutes waiting for the mail and incidentally
gaze at some lovely female behind the counter. But the canteen was more than
this. It was a friend in need to the fellow who ran out of shaving soap, or to the
fellow whose towel had gotten so dirty that even he refused to use it. It was a help
in a hundred other emergencies. It gave us a touch of home and was one of the
few things that eased the strain and unpleasantness of army life. It was largely
responsible too, for that last blaze of glory, the banquet. All thanks to the Y.
C. A. girls for the patient, willing service, and for their thoughtfulness! It was
time sacrificed from busy days. It was a service which brought no recompense, save
a bit of grateful recognition. Girls, the boys long for an opportunity to show their
gratitude. Should an opportunity present itself, please command us. R. B. T.

Years have past since I wore my first adornment of green
leaves. A college has been established and has grown. Men
have come and gone, youth has tasted of old age, prosperity
and hard times alike have visited.
In my younger days I felt the ground tremble beneath
me, as in that dark period of rebellion the stout hearts of youth
assembled beneath my boughs and dedicated themselves to the
country's service. Since then I heard the cry against the out-
rage of Spain, and, lately, the battle cry of enduring World
peace, as a third time in my history the boys of the college were
mustered in to defend humanity.
And now my days draw to an end. Death, that is eat-
ing at my heart, may soon be victorious. Whatever my lot may
be,-Whether I be permitted to stand a monument to the past, or
Whether I be left to die,-I shall be content, and when the end
shall have come, with the last leaf that falls from my aged limbs,
as with the first leaf I ever held, I shall proudly say, 'Eureka'-
I have found", and pass again to the mother earth from which

Y. W. C. A.
The Y. W. C. A. is the one organization which strives to create a spiritual
atmosphere among the college girls. Not only through the helpful religious meet-
ings which are conducted each Friday night, but also through the social activities
which are conducted by its able committees is the work of the organization best
Never before was the social work of the Association more clearly shown or
more heartily appreciated than during the days of the S. A. T. C. When con-
finement to Camp would have been almost unbearable but for pleasant social
gatherings which were held in the Gym. and which would have been impossible
but for the untiring work of the girls of the Y. W. C. A.
Through the advice of Mesdames Lehman, Jackson, Sucher, and Weaver
of the Advisory Committee, the Association was able to organize and conduct
a Military Canteen.
A very successful financial campaign was carried on in the nature of a Tag
Day. Through the hearty co-operation of the merchants and people of the city,
the committee received some sixty-five dollars.
The work of the Social Service Committee was heartily appreciated by
the factory girls in their note of thanks to the local girls for the beautiful violets
which were sent to them. Two Eight Week Clubs were organized and success-
fully conducted during the summer months.
Considering abnormal conditions, the Cabinet as well as the Association
feels that the past year has been one of the most successful years in .the history
of the local organization, and trusts that this may be the beginning of a greater
spiritual uplifting to the girls of the campus.
l The Purpose ly
W 1 l
The Student Y. W. C. A., affirming the Christian faith in God, the Father and
in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord and Saviour: and in the Holy Spirit the
Revealer of truth and Source of power for life and service, according to the teach
ing of Holy Scripture and the Witness of the Church, declares its purpose to be
To lead students to faith in God through Jesus Christ.
To lead them into membership and service in the Chris-
To promote their growth in Christian faith and charac-
ter, especially through the study of the Bible.
To influence them to devote themselves in united efforts
with all Christians, to making the will of Christ effec-
tive in human society and to extending the Kingdom of
God throughout the world.
Furthermore, the Association tries to make every girl feel at home to give
each girl some task, and in general to make Christianity practicable. The con
stant effort is to make Y. W. C. A. mean, Your Womanliness Makes Christianity

'14 Resigned close of 1918 to enlist in U. S. Service.
When college closed last spring the Y. lVl. C. A. cabinet found itself con-
fronted with great problems, and possibilities for making this year a real success.
Plans were adopted. However this fall when the S. A. T. C. was ushered into
existence, most of the men in school enlisted, and so the plans had to be altered.
The Eureka College Unit was not large enough to procure a paid secretary, so
our popular fellow student, Glenn Kilby, was chosen to act in that capacity. Much
of the success of the Y. lVl. C. A. in the first term of school was due to his untiring
efforts to meet the needs and desires of the men. Rooms were fitted out at the mess
hall for reading and study. Until the Y. W. C. A. opened its canteen, the secre-
tary was very busy procuring things that were wanted by the men. When the
second term opened the S. A. T. C. was a thing of the past. With its passing,
of course, was the leaving of some of our college men.
Our meetings have been held on Friday evenings, and have been chiefly of
inspirational character. The attendance has not been large, but consecrated.
Much good has been accomplished.
Four of our men attended the Lake Geneva Conference last year, and re-
turned to Eureka filled with inspiration that has helped throughout the year. This
summer six or eight men will attend the conference.
Every man in the college is considered a member of the Association, and is
asked to contribute as much as he can to the work. The desire is to have such a
fellowship and such a wholesome atmosphere about the college that every man
may see that Christ is his Savior. Together with the Y. W. C. A., we also attempt
to meet the needs of the college in all general social events, and to promote such
meetings when possible.
Although Eureka College possesses a distinct Christian atmosphere, there is
still need for an organization such as the Y. M. C. A., at whose meetings many
of the personal problems of student life may be discussed. Practical problems
dealt with in a Christian manner are bound to bring forth good fruits, and the
Y. lVl. C. A. is an agency for bringing forth these fruits.
Student Volunteer Band
The Student Volunteer Band consists of the students who have pledged their
lives to the task of spreading the gospel in foreign lands. Its immediate object,
aside from studying the work of missionaries, is that of deepening the interest of
the college students in missionary efforts and to enlist fellow students for life service
in that work. At the Student Volunteer Conference held in Bloomington, March
I4 to l6, the delegates drew up the following aim 'for the coming year. "The
Eureka delegation to the Student Volunteer Conference of Bloomington, propose
to carry out the following program under the divine leadership of our, Lord and
l. We shall endeavor to enlist l00 per cent of our student body in World
Fellowship Discussion Groups. Q
2. We shall enter into a World Fellowship Campaign for the puropse of
raising 3800.00 for the support of our own missionary in the Eureka Station on
the Congo, Africa.
3. We shall make an earnest appeal to our faculty for a more intensive study
of modern missions.
Y Y A...w11 . Y- -
4. We shall endeavor to increase our Student Volunteer membership l00
Agnes Maguire has been a faithful leader of this group during this difficult
year, and through her inspiration and plans the band has been strengthened. The
meetings which have been held alternate Monday evenings have been devotional in
character, an hour of earnest prayer and study. A number of times the band
met in missionary homes in Eureka and without exception these meetings were of
great help to the students.
Mr. D. O. Cunningham, Dr. C-uy W. Sarvis, Mrs. Esther T. Johnson, and
Dr. Belle Allen each brought to Eureka a special message on behalf of Student
Volunteers and the openings for Work in the foreign fields. The personal con-
ferences with students which these persons gave have left a deeper and clearer res-
ponsibility in their lives.
During the year four new members were added and a number of prospective
additions make it seem probable that the band will more than double in the coming
year. Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Weaver have been very encouraging to the band in
opening their home and hearts to each one of its number. The fact that they are
alumni of Eureka, Mr. Weaver at one time being a member of the Student Vol-
unteer Band here, and their seven years of active missionary work in Japan make
them unusually sympathetic and add to the value of their counsel.
Two new names are soon to be added to our honor roll. Mr. and Mrs. Clay-
ton McCaw of l9l8 are now under appointment to sail for the Philippines in July.
We are glad to have them go and wish them "God speed." We believe it will
not be long before others from our band will be able to join them.

Adelphian! No more appropriate name could have been chosen, which itself
would denote the rich fellowship which the members of the club have with each
other. The purpose of Adelphian is to strengthen the spiritual atmosphere of
Eureka College and toprovide a means of preparation for those interested in
Christian work. The most democratic of college clubs, it places no limit on the
membership, nor conditions or requirements upon those wishing to join except,-Well,
any of the present members could tell you that it might be well to be able to know
how to organize a Red Cross Chapter.
Aside from our discussions, we have had, during the past year, occasional
addresses from non-members, which have been most instructive and helpful. On
one of these occasions, Professor Sucher was the speaker, his subject being, I-lymns.
On another occasion, Dr. l-larrod gave a very interesting talk on "The Greek Con-
ception of After Life." just before Christmas, lVlrs. Weaver, in that inimitable
way of hers, gave us a charming group of Christmas stories. We were especially
fortunate in having with us for one evening lVlr. D. 0. Cunningham of India, and
Dr. Sarvis of China. The whole souled devotion of the missionary cause, and the
stirring appeals which they brought, endeared them to the hearts of the entire stu-
dent body. Very interesting were the recent messages brought by Mr. Shaw and
Mr, Kindred of Chicago, who had been, in their college days at Eureka, among
the first members of Adelphian.
Debates and spirited discussions of questions of religious and ethical signi-
ficance make the evenings among ourselves well worth while. Most exciting are
the impromptu meetings. Varied and startling is the information which is some-
times given on such occasions.
lVluch credit is due to lVliss Agnes Maguire, the president during the- first
semester, that the Adelphian Club carried on in spite of the influenza, the S. A.
T. C., and the many counter attractions. The officers who were recently installed,
Ferne Upton, Russell B. Thomas, Mabelle Browning, and Bunita Bowen, are
hoping to be able to keep the standard kept by their predecessors. .
Cne of the most interesting events of the year was the Adelphian Party. Per-
haps the most interesting part was when the fifty of us began by choosing husbands
and wives. Wait a minute, don't get excited! Although our adviser, Rev. lVIr.
Blair, was much in demand, it was only for the purpose of helping the respective
husbands and wives find each other, as Zipporah was not sure whether she belonged
to I-laman or Elkanah. The museum and Art Gallery, the treasures of which
had been collected from all parts of the world filled us with wonderful ad-
miration. A great manysurprising facts were brought to light whenthe answers
to the initial game were given. Each person present had been handed a list of
questions, which he was to answer in words beginning with his initials. We were
horrified to learn that our honored president was merely a Hungry Old Pup, and
that after all, lVlr. Lehman was a Lazy Old Loafer fwe all know better, howeverj.
We were not much surprised to know that lVlrs. Lehman's favorite occupation 'should
be Entertaining Louie, or that one of the number wished to be Always Reclining.
Jessie and Georgia averred that they were characterized by Just Brain Storms and
Great Big Blows. Bobby announced that his favorite occupation was Marrying
All Requesters, and Sherman said that he was Jilting Stiff Prudes. Prof. Sucher
likes to Feed Jennie,s Sweetheart, and Maurice enjoys Munching More Wieners.
Clarence admitted that he Cussed My Faculty, and Agnes informed us that she
was real Annoying,-Churlish,--MiserableI One of the girls created a sensa-
tion when she declared that she I-lugged lVlany Boys fl-lelen, Helen, beware of
the second Troylj. We know now why Ethel does not always answer her buzzerg
she Evades Gentlemen,s Calls! One of the boys gave a most candid answer when
he told that his favorite occupation was Looking After Women, as well as another
who is an adept in Embracing Teacher Women. And Ferne! Who would have
thought it of her ?-for we found that she is Always Flirting Unconsciously.
About a third of our members would be recognized anywhere by their pet
Kenneth-"Rawly, now, l'm sorry.',
Alva-"Clear as mudf,
Mabelle-"Don't you know?"
Clarencef"What do think this is, your birthday?"
Gladys-"Oh, Dearf, or That Laugh.
Sherman-"Is everybody here?"
Agnes-'6Oh, my goodness, child."
Vance-"S-A-Y I " .
Ethel-"Help", or "Such is life."

The Constellation is an organization which has for its purpose the promotion
of interest in modern drama. Bi-Weekly programs are given, consisting of readings,
sketches from plays, farces, and musical numbers. These programs afford prac-
tice, and reveal talent to be used in the production of plays given during the year.
On Tuesday, April l5, the Constellation presented the delightful comedy,
"It Pays to Advertise", a rich innovation, brimful of real comedy. The rapid-fire
dialogues and the many clever situations effected, combined with the rich Ameri-
canism of its humor, marked it as the most successful play that has ever been given
by the Constellation. Every member was a star in the interpretation of his role,
and in several scenes the acting displayed came near to realizing the skill of the pro-
