T. JACKSON PROFESSOR W. T. JACKSON! As you look back over a long career of teaching, you are justly entitled to take an honorable pride in your achievements. You magnified the profession by making adequate preparation for it. You are still preparing for it. You have had an ambition to instill in your students the spirit of science and to direct them in the use of the exact methods of the laboratory. Ample evidence of your success appears in what your former students have done and are doing. Your comments on educational theory and practice testify to your demand for intelligence in formulating ideals and standard's and in trying to attain them. Friends have been Won, not by words of flattery from you, but by what you have contributed to the common welfare by honest hard vvork. -SILAS JONES FOUR IN RECOGNITION of thirty-five consecutive yeors OI professorship at Eurelco- W E P R E S E N I - S I L A S I O N E S PROFESSOR SILAS JONES: You have gone far and deep in the realms Of ethics, religion, and philosophy. You have for years held spiritual converse with the great souls Of earthg and from this ennobling communion you have by the Working of your own native goodness distilled the fine essence Of the Way Of life. In the words of the Nestor of modern education you have found the durable satisfaction Of life. In some good day the academic terrain may rid itself Of its smothering encum- brance of pedantry, erudition, and acquisitivenessg then our laureates will be the men who have walked humbly and who have been exemplars of the good, the beautiful, and the true. In that day you will be a fully accredited candidate for really great academic distinction. You by your example and precept have been a guiding beacon On this campus for thirty-five years. -W. T. JACKSON ' F E THE SPIRIT OF EUREKA IN 1862 At the time that I was a student at Eureka College, our Alma Mater was a decidedly embryonic institution. It was meeting in the old two-story brick building known afterwards as the Academy. Professor A. S. Fisher was at the head of the institution and in passing, let me say that a finer, more consecrated man never lived than he. The rest of the teaching force was supplied by those who were students in the school-Elijah Dickinson and his sister, Miss Elmira, QI. I-I. Rowell, a regular "down-eastv Yankee, and others as the occasion demanded. But although it was in this formative state, the germ of life that has made it the great institution that it is, was firmly implanted in the ideals of those who had its management and whose influence, labors and sacrifices made it an institution of real worth. The germ that controlled the minds of every teacher and trustee was the realization of the supremacy of the Christian way of living. Without that purpose there would have been no Eureka College. At the beginning of the session of 1857-58, Professor C. L. Loos of Bethany came as its president. B. W. Johnson was added to its teaching force and it began to assume some of the elements of an institution of higher learning. Both of these men were real teachers. Sometime during that year we moved from the old Academy to the new building standing in the midst of the magnificent grove which is now the center of its various buildings. For such an institution the extent of its curricula was marvelous. Professor John Neville, later of Transylvania University had prepared its curriculum in mathematics. It is said that it included everything that either Yale or Harvard had in their curricula. This gave the student something to do for he knew that he would not receive an A.B. at his graduation unless he had completed it. The same was true of the curricula in both Latin and Greek. Beyond the usual pre- paratory studies, a full four year course in each language was required. Under the present methods of teaching, this seems like foolishness. But the young man who thinks clearly through the problems of analytical geometry and calculus has a mind trained for reasoning. And, while most students probably have done as I have, forgotten the most of their Latin and Greek, there is no doubt but this training furnished them a vocabulary adequate to every occasion. I still think that the colleges of today are too weak on their language requirements. We assembled every morning in the chapel in the new building and after devotional exercises President Loos, while he was there, and during the remainder of the time I was in college, P. W. Johnson, Vice-President, delivered lectures which were of great value to the students. Connected with the college were two societies-the Edmund Burke and the Periclesian. Later, when young preachers began to sprout their wings, the Mathe- sian society furnished them the opportunity of testing their ability. It is here that we learned to think on our feet and express ourselves intelligently. As I look over the list of graduates of Eureka, I see the names of many who have made their mark as pulpit orators. It was their training received in these societies that prepared them to speak extemporaneously. No notes or manu- scripts were used in an oration or debate. It is my opinion there is nothing that so interferes with a speaker's power over an audience as a paper, however well concealed. In the short space I have, I cannot go into details, but I wish to impress upon those of the present that the supreme purpose for which Eureka College was established was to promote the greatest possible spirit of brotherhood among men and to develop men capable of zealous application to the purpose of improving the total worth of human personality. I trust that is its purpose yet. It is difficult in looking back through seventy years to recall the things that might be most impressive, but these I have mentioned stand out most conspicu- ously in my memory and are my most cherished recollections. -SAMUEL K. HALLAM SIX W E H 0 N O R Eurelcofs oldest living alumnus- SAMUEL K. HALLAM Samuel Kincaid Hallam, who celebrated his ninety-first birthday on January 30, has the distinction of being the oldest living graduate of Eureka College. Mr. Hallam graduated from Eureka in 1862 With an A.B. degree. It was 72 years ago April 25 that Mr. Hallam was ordained to the Christian ministry. He has held pastorates in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Texas. In IQIO he organized the Central Christian Church of Brownsville, Texas, Where he now serves as pastor emeritus. He has made his home in Brownsville since 1907. S VEN COCDPERATION Stand off by yourself in your dreaming, And all of your dreams are vain, No grandeur of soul or spirit Can lvlan by himself attain. It is willed we shall dwell as brothersg As brothers we must toilg We must act with a common purpose As we work in a common soil. And each who would see accomplished, The dreams that he's proud to own, Must strive for the goal with his fellows, For no man can do it alone. -AUTHOR UNKNOWN E I G H T ling ABMIN NT I STWNTIQN FACULTY PRESIDENT CLYDE L. LYON Almost a century has passed since the sturdy pioneers of Walnut Grove founded Eureka College and dedicated it to a program of Christian education. From the College were to come leaders and laymen who Would carry on the work of the Kingdom of God. During the decades that have passed since the hrst classes met, educational theory and practice have changedg yet the old ideals endureg the old objectives still abide. Eureka College, motivated by the spirit of its founders and with its program adjusted to the needs of the present day, dedicates its energies to the training of men and Women Who will do good service in the Kingdom of God. -CLYDE L. LYON E L E V E N DEAN SAMUEL G. HARROD How can one define or describe or weigh that intangible pervasive thing We call the spirit of a community? It is impossible. This only can We say. Those who have deeply thrilled to this subtle spirit as it moves in an intimate college group are profoundly changed. They have worked togetherg they have played togetherg they have together experienced the ecstacy of victory and the bitterness of defeat. They have together followed with free foot Widening intellectual horizons. Out of common experiences have come glimpses into spiritual realities. They are infinitely the richer. What shall We say of the spirit of our Alma Mater? Analysis is futile. This only We may say. The Spirit of Eureka College is democraticg the whole group faces its common problems. The Spirit of Eureka College is the spirit of unselfish serviceg self seeking has no place in it. The Spirit of Eureka College is the spirit of courageg all down the years there has been struggle and hardship faced Without fear or shrinking. Thousands who "beneath the elmsn have felt the breath of this spirit moving in their lives are true sons and daughters of the "fostering motherf' -'SAMUEL G.

It prospered and became a leader on the campus. In 1916 this local group came to the attention of Martha Railsback and upon acquaintance with Miss Railsback it elected to choose nationalization rather than individualization. The sorority was recommended by the president of the college for membership in Delta Zeta and was installed as Pi chapter on February 17, 1917 with seventeen charter members. Many Pi girls have lived in Eureka so that there is a strong alumnae group in the town which is closely associated with the Chapter in all sorority affairs. A loan fund has been provided by the alumnae which grants one scholarship DELTA ZETA Zllbe 19 MARA LEE O,BRIEN Prism 36 K. MUNCH KLESATH F. MUNCH SAEFORD SOHUSTEK HURD HUNT KAUFMAN C. O'BmEN M.

Every year Pi chapter joins with Nu of Knox in a Founders' Day banquet held in Peoria. This spring girls from Nu, Alpha Alpha of Northwestern and Pi spent an enjoyable week-end at the Delta Zeta chapter house in Urbana. Pi has remained the Only national chapter at Eureka and due somewhat to the unusual characteristics of the college and its student body, it has devoted its energies to the building up of customs and ideals that befit a small, rather conservative group of girls.

Seven of the members of the disbanded "As-You-Like-It" Club wished to unite themselves into a group and resolved to form a type of organization Which, at that time, was foreign to the Eureka College Campus. Undaunted by the opposi- tion of the faculty and administration to a secret Greek letter society, the girls made their plans and applied to the state government for a charter. It was granted in the year stated above. DELTA DELTA PI Qlibe 19 iBrism 36 HAGAN HAND J. MELIOK PARKS SENEBAC SHEPPARD WHITE WILLIAMS MRS. J. M. ALLEN MRS.

It was regarded, mainly, as a literary society, but along with that the fellows who constituted the group felt themselves closely related in more than just the fleld of literary endeavor. They recognized four pillars upon which their affiliation and their mutual enterprise rested. These were the objectives which they adopted as their Own. They were learning, patriotism, virtue, and the moral laws Of God.

The members of Kappa Sigma Phi, realizing the value of a national fraternity, and desiring such affiliation, became a part of Theta Kappa Nu. The laws of Theta Kappa Nu stipulate that alllmembers place the welfare of the College first, support the College authorities, and ever should the members seek to serve their Alma Mater in all College activities, and at the same time maintain high standards of scholastic achievement. The fraternity asjaunational organization and the College are both working toward the same end-the develop- ment and production of strong, Well-rounded citizens. i Thus, by the cultivation of the highest principles of patriotism, the acquire- ment of sound learning, and the observance of the finest laws of morality, will the ideals of Theta Kappa Nu be achieved.

The first two candidates for initiation into this group were Rolla Dragstrom of Waynesville, Illinois and Ernest B. Pearson of Eureka. Of this group of fraternity pioneers, Harry Rice, Edgar Collier and Rolla Dragstrom are now deceased. Emory Ross, who has served twenty-two years in Liberia, and on the Belgian Congo, as a Christian missionary, is now home again carrying forward Christian work in America. Dr. Ernest B. Pearson, medical missionary in the Belgian Congo for nineteen years, has also lately returned from Africa, and is continuing his practice of medicine in Eureka.

The study rooms of the various members served as chapter rooms for their meetings. For their initiations, they rented the Masonic and Oddfellows halls in town. On the twenty-first of April in IQI7, Pi Alpha Theta fraternity was granted a charter of membership as Iota Chapter Of the national fraternity known as Tau Kappa Epsilon. This new Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter then cast about for a home, and soon moved into 816 Darst Street. This remained Iota's home until 1923, when the chapter moved to what is the present TKE House at 626 Burton Avenue. With the same spirit of these early pioneers in fraternity, Ioto Chapter, in keeping with the national character of Tau Kappa Epsilon, has ever striven to foster and keep alive the ideals of character, scholarship, and congeniality.

This group of Eureka men have pledged themselves to aid one another in the materialization of this ideal. One of the prime requisites of membership is high scholastic standing, which must be maintained in order to retain membership. We feel it the duty of every Eureka student to promote a higher level of cultural development. With this constantly in mind, We strive to contribute our share both as a group and as individuals to the Well-being of the campus.

A part of its duties is to meet in deliberative session and make nominations for the various oHices of the PEGASUS Staff which are lilled by student election. The object of such nomination by a small board is to insure an ample number of competent candidates from which the student body can fill the oflices. The Advisory Board Works in con- junction with the Senate in making these nominations. It has representation in the Senate.

A part of the plan was that the work be divided up into departments and that a student manager be at the head of each of the divisions. Each manager is responsible for the proper carrying out of the work in his particular depart- ment. In order that the work of all the departments be as correlated as possible and managers themselves have opportunity for solving their common diHiculties more readily, the Board of Managers meets in regular weekly sessions in the Presidentls olhce. At that time any new plans are discussed and new policies adopted if, in the judgment of the Board, they are advisable. By such a system of student management the ideal of democracy which Eureka College wishes to perpetuate is given support, and the workability of such government in student affairs is evidenced by the complete success of the Eureka Plan.

Reporter: Probably the most thoroughly read journal in America when We take into account the size of the public alifected by it and the size of its constituency is the Eureka PEGASUS. It is published Weekly under the supervision of a competent student editor and it is awaited eagerly by an anticipating student body. The editorship of the Eureka PEGASUS is one of the most important of all the school OHices. The PEGASUS being an organ of the school spirit must convey that spirit in its truest form if the people oil the campus who read the paper are to see Eureka as it is. The editor of the PEGASUS is elected by the students in December of each year and serves during the ensuing calendar year.

BERNADINE I-IAGAN During the past few years the PRISM much the same as many business enterprises has found it difficult to keep going. Occasionally there has been no year book published at all because of the financial impossibility during those particular years. For that reason there was no PRISM published last year. The college, however, feeling that there should be such a record of the school activities published every year, has included in the general fees paid by the student the amount of a regular subscription to the PRISM. Thus, every student is automatically a subscriber, and the PRISM is assured of a given amount of its budget at the beginning of the year. Such financial consideration makes it possible for the StaHf to give more attention to the planning of the annual. - The various members of the Staff have done their allotted work in a creditable manner, but two members of the Staff in particular should be given especial consideration. Our two artists Winona Wyatt and Kenneth Patton have given unsparingly of their time and talent in making this annual a success. Kenneth Patton drew in pencil the portraits which appear in the opening section. It is to the eliorts of Winona Wyatt that we are grateful for the cuts of the buildings on the division pages and also for the cuts used in the border design.

They assisted the growth of the campus Sunday school class and also organized a Sunday Evening Discussion Club similar to the one We now have meeting in the parlor of Lida's Wood every Sunday evening. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss social problems of both campus and extra-campus importance. As the years passed the Campus Council expanded its activities until now it is the central unit made up of all the campus religious activities. Its membership is made up of representatives from the various classes, social organizations, religious groups, chapel committee, and non-fraternity and non-sorority students. In the fall the Campus Council plans its budget and outlines its program for the ensuing year. Part of its program is to bring speakers of note to the chapel platform, send delegates to the Geneva Summer Conferences and other similar meetings, and to cooperate with the local church in programs that will lead to the enrichment of the religious life of the students.

Through its four years Of existence, the Medbury Club has conducted regularly appointed meetings devoted to the discussion of problems of mutual interest. The membership is not limited.

Following the annual tryouts and organization of the Club shortly after Thanksgiving vacation, work was begun upon a Well-balanced program of choruses. Included in the repertoire were "The Pilgrim Chorus" from 6'Tannhauses," Handel's '4Largo," a group of negro spirituals, and others of like quality. The program was further rounded out by a piano solo by Marcelin Butler, accompanist, a violin solo by Elmer Szepessy, and a group of numbers by the Eureka Campus Quartet, the members of which were Jay Tomb, William Madison, Robert Blankinship, and Norman Taylor. The annual home concert was presented on Sunday afternoon, February 16, at the Christian Church, as the first of a series of Sunday evening vesper services. The program was Well received by a large and appreciative audience. The following Saturday, February 22, the Glee Club started on its annual spring tour giving concerts in Joliet, Harvey, Chicago, Mount Morris, Oregon, Sterling, and Dixon.

The production was sponsored by the Eureka College School of Music,under the direction of George W. Gunn, and presented to a capacity crowd at the Eureka Christian Church. The program featured the Easter portion of the great masterpiece, as Well as the Christmas portion which is usually rendered. An unusually large chorus of one hundred voices took part in the singing, and their work was a credit to all participants as Well as to their able director. The solo parts were masterfully presented by Jane Woodman, soprano, and Olga Bollinger, contralto, of Peoria, Burl McPheeters, Baritone, of Canton, and Henry Esser, tenor, of Washington. Mr. Esser and Mr. McPheeters are graduates of the Eureka College School of Music. The accompaniment Was skillfully handled by Margaret Mundell Tomb and Ramona C. Beard at the two pianos. The Pastoral Symphony was played by Elmer Szepessy and Russell James on the violins. ORATORIO The 19 TAYLOR MADISON M. TOMB J.

Director For many years there has been a Men's Quartet connected in some manner with Eureka Campus. Sometimes they have been sponsored directly by the Eureka College School of Music. At other times they have developed without direct recognition by the college. In case of the latter, Mrs. Tomb who has had many years of intimate contact with voice students in Eureka as accompanist, discovers suitable quartet material and gives the direction necessary to make the quartet. At the beginning of the year the boys under the direction of Mrs. Tomb set about the task of making themselves into a worthwhile quartet. Their very generous acclaim wherever they have appeared attests to their success. The quartet took part in many out of town engagements, broadcasting from Bloomington, Springfield, and Peoria, and appeared almost weekly at various functions in Eureka. The quartet furnished music on the Men's Cvlee Club tour and toward the end of the season gave a spicy concert in chapel which was intensely interesting and greatly appreciated. On its out of town appearances the quartet lets Eureka College be known to many eligible students. There is probably no greater advertising medium among the students than the Eureka College Campus Quartet. The Eureka College Campus Quartet serves a real need and should be given a special impetus next year.

There were regular Weekly practice periods instituted and followed through, resulting in an orchestra Worthy of mention. Anyone who attended the opera presented by the Eureka College School of Music can not do other than regard with satisfaction and esteem, the excellent orchestral accompaniment, provided in cooperation with Professor George W. Gunn, the conductor ofthe opera. Elmer Szepessy and Kenneth Patton, violinists: Winona Wyatt, drummerg and Edith Bechtel, pianist are outstanding individuals in the organization.

The college has been especially anxious that the Band be developed to its best and has provided many needed instruments. The Band is fortunate in having a very capable director in the person of Byron B.'VVyman. The Band meets in regular Weekly practice. The Band has contributed considerable enthusiasm at the athletic contests, and has met with the general acclaim of all Eureka students. During the early spring the Band gave a concert in convocation which was convincing evidence of their very high degree of achievement this year. Since most of the Band members are underclassmen this year, the Band gives promise of exceptional performance next year. BAND 1 wig?

A squad of seven members Worked diligently on the question: "Resolved, That the United States should cooperate with the League of Nations in the application of sanctions as provided for under the covenant ofthe League." The women participated in intercollegiate competition with Charleston Normal, Illinois Wesleyan, MacMurray, Bradley, and debated in the Annual Normal Invitational Tournament held January 24-25. TWO Women's teams also entered the State Tournament held at Normal, March., I3-I4. Owing to lack of experience, the women did not place int the State tourna- ment, but valuable experience Was gained. With the background of this first year, the women should make a creditable showing next year. WOMEN'S DEBATE The 19 1Brism 36 POTTENGEE BEELER K. JAMES PLUMLEE HARROD NORTON R. JAMES PROFESSOR L. E.

Under the coaching of Professor L. E.

The first debate was held on November 18, when teams composed of Kinsey James and Russell James, affirmative, and Samuel Harrod and Plumlee, nega- tive, met teams from 'Waynesburg College, VVaynesburg, Pennsylvania in non-decision practice contests. Other debates of similar nature followed with Illinois Wesleyan, Charleston Normal, Millikin, Bradley, Purdue University, Franklin, Indiana, I-Iiram, Ohio, Principia, Lake Forest, North Central, and other teams of the state conference. Tournaments were attended at Franklin College, Franklin, Indiana, February 21-22, Illinois Normal Invitational Tourney at Normal, January 24-25, and the State Tournament also held at Normal. Decisions were given in all of these tournaments and Eureka made a creditable showing in all of them, culminating a successful season with a tie for second place in the State Conference Tournament. They were topped in total wins only by Whea- ton whom they did not meet. In this tournament Eureka teams were Lyle Beeler and Ralph Plumlee, negative, and Samuel I-Iarrod and Kinsey James, affirmative. In all, sixty debates were engaged in by all teams, of which thirty- five were decision debates. Of these thirty-five decision debates, the men won twenty and lost fifteen, making the best season record made by a Eureka debate squad in several years.

It has enjoyed successful activity on the Eureka campus, but during the past few years lack of interest in forensics has depleted its membership. However, during the current year, the revival of debating and Oratory has increased the number of eligible students markedly. Pi Kappa Delta held its eleventh biennial convention at Houston Texas, during the entire Week beginning March 29. The Eureka chapter was repre- sented by Samuel Harrod and Kinsey James. Both men debated, alternatively affirmative and negative, advancing through the sixth round of competition, and meeting teams from Redlands, California, Heidelberg, Ohio, Oklahoma Baptist, Oklahoma, Southwestern Institute, Louisiana, Michigan State, Michigan: and Ottawa, Kansas. Kinsey James entered the contest in Oratory with an oration on the astound- ing loss of life in automobile accidents, and Samuel Harrod competed in extemporaneous speaking, dealing with a topic concerning the international relations of the United States. Both men were eliminated in the preliminary rounds of the tournament in these fields. PI KAPPA DELTA iprism 36 REI'I'zEI.L EWING CARNEY HARRISON HURT S.

Prefident The Athletic Board of Control is an advisory body to the administration of the college, and has for its particular province of activity control over all problems relating to athletics, Whether intramural or intercollegiate. The board acts with consideration for the student body, the administration and the faculty, and for that reason, each has its representation. It is made up of the president of the college, the athletic directors, captains fo the major sports, three faculty representatives, and one representative of the student body, not an athlete. This board is so constituted that it conforms to the North Central Association requirements regarding college athletic boards. The decisions for the award of athletic sweaters, the scheduling of inter-collegiate T contests, and the business management of , games are items deliberated upon by this organization. MA C- Ralph McKinzie, Head Coach and Director of Athletics at Eureka for the past fourteen years, graduated from Eureka College in 1921. During his undergraduate years, Mac Was an all-conference full back for four years, and for three years an all-conference guard on the basketball team, captaining both all-conference teams in his senior year. Since taking over the coaching assignment at Eureka, his record as a man and as an advocate of hard, clean, sports- manlike play has been a constant inspiration to the men he has coached.

Meeting Carthage in the season's opener at McKinzie Field, the Golden Tornadoes evidenced the usual first game uneasiness, and dropped a close decision, which a week later might well have been the basis of celebration. The score of IO-7 evidences the slight margin by which victorywas achieved. The second game played against the strong North Central eleven found an aroused Eureka team fighting its best, only to lose heartbreakingly, as a result of a fumble inside the ten yard line, which gave the opponents their only chance to score, and win, 6-0. The Homecoming game with Elmhurst, played before the usual Home- coming crowd, was a battle between two evenly matched teams, until the final quarter, when superior reserves enabled the Pirates to push over the winning touchdown, I3-7. The Normal Redbirds, with the Strongest team in years, found itself almost overwhelmed by a fighting Eureka eleven who carried the ball to the one-foot line in the first five minutes, only to fumble and lose their golden opportunity. Normal won in the final minutes I3-O. Nleeting Wheaton in a sea of mud, the Eurekans were ineffective in a slow game, which the Crusaders took I2-0. The final contest against DeKalb, once more proved the advantage of strong reserve strength, as the strong Northerners were forced to wait until deep in the second half before they were able to break through the stubborn Eureka defense and score three times, winning IQ-O. FOOTBALL The 19 Prism 36 THE GOLDEN ToRNAnoEs In accord with the trend of the past few years, the 1935 Golden Tornadoes were led into battle by co-captains-Frank Sumner and Tony Cargnino. Sumner, a senior, and a three'-year letterman, proved himself a real and inspiring leader by setting an example of hard-hitting play that was hard to equal. Cargnino, a janior, and a two year letterman, was an important cog in the stalwart forward wa . Twelve members of the squad of twenty-five men were awarded their maroon sweaters as a fitting trophy of their efforts. Four of the men won their letters for the last time. Co-captain Frank Sumner, alternating at halfback and quarterback, established himself as a small, but doughty fighter, one who could be downed but never beaten. Nothing daunted "Snake". Sam Harrod at tackle proved himself as a consistently hard smasher, one who could not only open holes but smash plays of the opposition. None were too tough. Fred Mursener, converted end who took over the difficult center, was retired from competition by injuries at the last of the season, but only after making a name for himself by his ability to diagnose and intercept opponents' plays. Walter Miller proved his ability to handle any post well. "Red', played quarterback, fullback and guard and played all in excel- lent fashion. Among the entire squad, the outstanding all-round performance must be accredited to Jay Tomb, co-captain elect. Playing his third year as a regular linesman of exceptional ability,before the end of the season, Jay was distinguishing himself as the most consistent ground gainer of the squad at fullback. Although hampered by injuries Jay was able to punt, pass and plunge with undiminished aggressiveness. Co-captain Cargnino at tackle made up a forward wall that was hard to pierce and infallible in offensive play. Frank Perachiotti, the other co- captain elect, held down one half back berth in truly creditable fashion, gaining consistently and tackling with deadly accuracy. Jim lX4ursener at end was a pass- snagger or rare ability, and a hard driving defensive player. Weidman at the other end specialized in play smashing and few times was his end invaded success- fully. Gorden Norden, aggressive tackle, was an important figure in the forward wall, defending his side of the line with consistent play. Gail Plumley, freshman fullback, filled into the difficult plunging post in fine style, making up in drive and fight what he lacked in size. Raymon Houghton, another first year man, soon proved his mettle as a pivot man who could not only snap the ball accurately, but play a whale of a defensive game. The statement that Eureka was weak in reserve strength does not mean that reserves were lacking. The reserves were an important part of the season's performance, lacking only experience and seasoning. Hartman and Elliott, at tackles, were the equals of any linesmen on the squad, surrendering only to more experienced men. Jochums as reserve center turned in consistent performance. Todd and Helm, reserve guards will undoubtedly see much service in another year. Pixley, at end, turned in such an excellent game at North Central as to win honorable mention in all-conference selections. Among the backfield aspirants, HoeHin, freshman quarterback was worthy of recognition. Quinn, freshman guard, although small, was the equal of any in fight and aggressive play. Kimberlin, VVargo, Short, and Hubert Sumner made good showing as reserve backfield material. The Annual Freshman-Sophomore football game, played at McKinzie Field the Monday after Armistice Day was one of the interesting highlights in the campus football experience. The scrap resulted in a hard fought victory for the Frosh. Holding a consistent advantage over the yearlings throughout the game, the wearers of the Cap were able to push over two scores to win I2-o. Touch- downs were scored by Lochman and Crown. FOOTBALL If-if' ..'

MURSENER MCKINZIE MILLER J. MURSENER GIVENS RESUME The Little Nineteen conference schedule was opened after Christmas vaca- tion at lvlillikin. Meeting the strong Big Blue team, Eureka was unable to hit her stride and dropped their opener to the Decaturites. Three days later meeting State Normal on the home Hoor a close and hard 'fought game resulted in a win for the opponents. Resuming athletic relations after a lapse of three years, Eureka was host to the Macomb Normal Leathernecks in their third game and after holding the teachers even throughout the first half, their defense withered in the second period and the conference scoring champion, Carroll Woods, built up a lop-sided score in favor of the Westerners. Against the tall men of Augustana, the Eureka scrappy five was powerless and lost by the margin of ten points. Elmhurst on their home floor was the first victim of the Red Devils. Taking an early lead and increasing it throughout, the Eurekans won by the score of 44-33. Bradley, also fell victim of the Devils and received a drubbing on the Eureka court after the first game at Peoria had been postponed by a blizzard. The unbeatable Wesleyan Titans, conference champions this year, took a series from the Red Devils, winning at Eureka and following with a victory at their home court. Return games with Normal, Millikin, Macomb, and Augustana resulted in losses for the lighting Red Devils. The second game with Elmhurst was won by the local cagers in decisive fashion, while the second game with Bradley, played at Peoria, was the high spot of the season. Taking an early lead which was increased to a ten point margin shortly after the half, Bradley seemed to have the game well in hand. However, the fighting Eurekans unwilling to accept defeat came from behind to forge into the lead in the last minute, only to be forced into a tie by a last minute toss by Bradley. The overtime period found Eureka in possession of the ball for the first three minutes during which four points were scored. Bradley garnered two timely baskets only to meet defeat by one point in a score which stood at the final gun at 43-42. A free throw by Nlooberry put the game in the bag for the Red Devils.

Both these men have played four years as members of the Eureka Varsity basketball teams. Mursener, at center was the pivot man in the Eureka offense. He gathered a total of Ioo points throughout the season, to rank eighth among the leading scorers of the conference. Miller, playing in the back court at guard, was a constant block to the offense of the opposition and his ability as a Hoor general was valuable. Aside from the two co-captains, five men won their right to wear the maroon sweater and the gold "Eff Three of these men, Hensley, Traylor, and Givens are sophomores and won their letters last year. Wayne Hensley was the outstand- ing scorer of the year. His season's total of IIS points placed him third in the ranking scorers of the conference, and first on the Eureka squad. George Givens figured less in the scoring but was more valuable for his defensive ability and defensive play. Cocoa Traylor was handicapped by a late return to school, but soon resumed his place at forward, and gave an excellent account of himself. Paul Noftsker, a junior and a member of the squad for the first time played at forward and could be counted on for a consistent performance. Those members of the squad who give unstintingly of their time and effort but get little praise are an essential part of any team and so far as the limited number of Eurekais reserves went they were not lacking in any respect. james Mursener, a member of the squad for the third year was a capable guard and one who could be counted on for consistent play. Dean Short, a sophomore serving his first year on the squad filled in at reserve guard in excellent fashion. Dick Wargo, a freshman guard, was a capable replacement who turned in a good fast game whenever he was called upon. Robert McDonald, freshman forward, was a hard-fighting player and one who shows promise of real basketball achievement for another year. INTRAMURAL BASKETBALL The annual intermural basketball tournament, sponsored by the "E" Tribe was played off during the week following the close of the varsity basketball season. Five teams competed, representing Tau Kappa Epsilon, winner for three consecu- tive years, Theta Kappa Nu, Psi Alpha Lambda, Nestorians, and non-fraternity men. The victorious aggregation was coached by Cocoa Traylor and was composed of Captain Maurice McGuire, Rhodes Crown, James Woods, Richard Crown, Tony Cargnino, and Bernard Smith. Maurice McGuire, captain of the winners was the outstanding player of the tournament. BASKETBALL JL ' 'I It f l 1,4 'lym-4 . ,,,. Nz il! ,y 10-1- STEWARDSON MCKINZIE WE.

ISRAEL MILLER CARGNINO PERACHIOTTI MUEELEY PROSPECTUS W'ith the advent of suitable weather conditions, the thoughts of Eureka athletes turned to the diamond pastime. Baseball for the current year has a brilliant prospect. Six returning lettermen and excellent new material to work with the members of last year's squad should produce a winning combination. On the basis of early practices, indications are for a well balanced team. Plenty of potential power at the plate, coupled with brilliant field play by members of the squad make it a diflicult task to see anything but a successful season. The pitching staff is the major cause of concern, but indications are that this department will be strengthened by the development of new material. The inheld is practically intact, but changes are probable. Co-captains Perachiotti and Cargnino, third baseman and shortstop, respectively, from last yearis team, will again be available for duty at their old posts. Miller at second and Mursener at first also will be able to repeat. The outfielders will undoubtedly be new men, as only one of last year's squad members in this department returned. Wherley seems a possibility for any of the outfield assignments. Wayne Hensley, pitcher of last year's diamond dusters will again work on the mound, with Wargo, a freshman, alternating. These two should be able to handle the pitching assignment adequately. The catching post is vacant and filling it will be of major concern. Miller may be called behind the bat, and Perachiotti moved to second, with Wargo or Hensley alternating at third and the mound. Another change which seems likely is moving Cargnino to right field and 'Wendall Israel, freshman infielder, to shortstop. Other men who will figure in the story of Eureka's baseball team this spring are Wayne Israel, Lochman, Dale, Ward, and J. Mursener, outfielders, and Kimberlin and Quinn, infielders. All of these men are showing definite baseball strength in some department or another.

Frank Perachiotti, an inlielder of exceptional ability, is valuable for his batting and fielding strength, coupled with unusual ability on the base lines. Tony Cargnino, also an infielder, but an outfielder as well, is a mighty man with the bat and his particular specialty is extra base hits. The other letter men who will again display their talent are Wayne Hensley, Whose pitching was the feature ofthe team a year ago, and now, a sophomore, should be more capable with this experience behind him, Fred Mursener, veteran senior, whose play at first base has been consistently good, and VValter Miller, another senior who can fill any position capably and who may be behind the bat this spring.

Under the able guidance of Chet Renner, who has been a star on the courts for three years, the squad is rapidly developing into a team of outstanding caliber. The team will meet Bradley, Normal, Wesleyan, Millikin and Macomb. Other matches may be arranged later, as the program Will permit. An early season evaluation of the various members of the team puts Renner, who will guide the team. throughout the season, as number one man. Esch with less experience ranks at second place, Maurice lXflcGuire at third position with Donald Sturgeon, Wiilliam Madison, and Jay Tomb followed in order. As soon as challenge matches can be played, changes in this rating will un- doubtedly be in order. Renner, McGuire and Tomb are all juniors, Madison is a sophomore, and Sturgeon and Esch are freshmen. Tennis on the Eureka campus exists for much more than for the training of intercollegiate players alone. There is a wholesome, general interest in the game and it is one of the most satisfying diversions of the Eureka College students. It is probably the most common sport on the campus.

It is aH'iliated with the national organization. The local W. A. A. organization is governed by an executive cabinet made up of the elected ollicers, heads of sports, and the director of the department of physical education for Women. It sponsors all types of activity which enrich the athletics program for the Women of the college. This year its program has included the furthering of tennis, basketball, swimming, hiking, and ping pong. Tournaments in tennis were conducted in the fall, and definite emphasis of like nature was given all the other areas of Women's athletics. An especially interesting feature of the W. A. A. was the many hikes planned and carried out during the year. Any girl in school is eligible for membership in the W. A. A. Much of the success of the vvomen's athletic program is due to the com- petent direction of Miss Ruth Saddler, the director of the department of women's physical education. Her complete versatility makes it possible for her to plan a physical education program meeting the requirements and interests of every girl in college. Miss Saddler's skill in directing Women's athletics and her diligence in the solving of the problems that she meets assures Eureka College of success in any of the endeavors in Women's athletic projects it may propose.

Archery is a part of the highly varied program of womenis physical education on Eureka campus. The skill that the participants in this sport develop is almost unbelievable. Many .times the bull's-eye feels the full effect of arwell directed arrow at forty paces. Another of the most interesting outdoor sports in the women's program is soccer. Every Thursday in the fall about twenty girls go to the football field for a little Uscrimmagen. It usually proves to be a scrimmage in the truest sense of the word. Teams are organized at the beginning of the season and the same personnel kept in each team throughout the season. In such a setup a real team spirit develops and snappy, vigorous competition results. ARCHERY 3: fr T Q .. .F , . 'xl 4-fx . 1- 1 A w r .QP .1, A , H?

At the beginning of the school year girls, tennis started off with a zest. During the fall season the girls played off a tournament in order to arrive at some notion as to who were the best tennis players. In many cases the opponents were well matched and the competition was quite interesting. This spring a tennis team composed of Louise Teter, Kathryn lXflcGuire, Margaret McCarver, and Jessie Conover, the aggregation captained by Kathryn McGuire, has been scheduled to represent the varsity in intercollegi- ate tennis matches. Some of the schools with which matches are scheduled are Millikin, Illinois College, and Wheaton. Other matches may be scheduled as the season progresses. The varsity will have to hustle to keep the present personnel, if the progress of other contenders for a place on the team means anything. Among the several girls who are possible candidates for a place on the Women's varsity are Kathleen Tomb and Eunice Jochums. TENNIS The 19 REITZELL MCRAE SMITH PEARSON TETER RUMBOLD MALOON SMITH Swimming is given as much emphasis by the Women's Athletic Association, and as much support by the girls as any other sport in the women's athletic department. Girls who come to college unable to swim are encouraged to learn and to take part in the swimming events of the season. Many girls under the direction of Miss Ruth Saddler develop swimming skill rapidly and become experts in handling themselves in the water. A considerable number use this training as a means of qualifying for recognition as life guards. Every spring the girls put on a Water Pageant in which the public is given opportunity to witness their excellent swimming and diving. This year the pageant centered around the characters of Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy, and was directed by Miss Saddler. The Water Pageant was a complete success given to a capacity crowd. The parts of Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy, taken by Janice Gibson, Jane Baxter, and Lynn Habecker, respectively, were handled in masterly fashion. SWIMMING ' 4 4' x 5.1-ni +.-ni Vi!

The pro- gram from then on included the playing of a tournament, the purpose of which was in the end to acclaim one or another of the teams the season's champion. The college women have at their disposal for the winter season, excellent facilities for the playing of indoor volleyball. Many girls avail themselves of the opportunity so offered. In volleyball, also, there are tournaments to culminate the season's activity. For those who are inclined to choose less strenuous exercise, facilities for the playing of badminton are provided. BASKETBALL Ghz 19 FINALE 1Brism 36 As we come to the end of the year and to the end of this task of publishing a yearbook, when we are about to see our efforts culminate in the achievement of the purpose set out upon, we are inclined to he somewhat reflective on the whole situation. VVe wonder what possibly can be the meaning of all this expense, these long days and nights of toil with pictures and school data and copy and proof, this ceaseless computing of figures which have to do with the cost accounting of the production, and the constant contacting and directing of people in order to get the thousands of details of a publication of this type properly organized. There is a question in mind and it finally simmers down to a simple, direct query. What is all this for? Of what good is this 1936 edition of the PRISM? As a partial answer, our thoughtful reader, we ask you: What does this book you have before you now mean to you? Why are you interested in it at all? We are inclined to be refiective not because our objectives in the beginning were poorly defined or lacked justification, but rather because, now that we have an opportunity to review the work of the year, we must rethink it from our new point of view born of experience in participating in the production, re-evaluating our objectives and testing the validity of our reasons. I lVe realize that this annual is much like annuals of the past have been, and we conjecture that it is much like annuals of the future will be. There are many points of similarity. It pictures people individually and tells certain interesting facts about them. It pictures groups of people and indicates their significance to the total college spirit. In much the same way as annuals have done and will do, it portrays in the ordinary way of annuals, a year of college life. In these respects we have not given especial emphasis to the purpose of making this edition of the PRISM better than any other. We recognize our limitations in that capa- city. We do not have a monopoly on editorial ingenuity and resourcefulness. There have been editors and will be others whom we do not hope to surpass in the technique of annual production. There is, however, one way in which this annual is unique. It is the annual of this year. It is a picture of this year's campus activity. And we think it is for this reason that you are, at this minute, particularly interested in reading this page, and all the other pages in the book. As you read it you are searching after facts concerning the college life of Eureka during the year 1935-1936. You yourself may have participated in many of the activities featured in this book. If you have not, your friends have. We think you are reading this yearbook, not to become more familiar with Eureka, because you are already familiar, but rather in most instances, to re-live the experiences of the past year which you remember with affection. It is in these pages that we have tried to crystallize and render immortal those cherished areas of your experience and your friends' experiences at Eureka this year. If there is any joy of the past we have helped you to remember, and if we have helped you face the future with the assurance that there is something vital and enriching in the Spirit of Eureka for you, we feel that our labors have been justified. We hope that, in these pages, you have found the essence of the Spirit of Eureka.
