FLORENCE BELL Ye old college bell tolls out victory, hilarity, celebration. Whenever it is heard ringing, the heart of the auditor feels the thrill oi college days-the ethereal, rosy, glowing feeling that is precious to every Eureka son and daugh- ter. The old bell stands in the middle of the campus-staunchly, squarely 'neath the elms. Around it range the five main buildings ot the college. Students hurry by it going to and from class in the bright sunlight: these same students stroll by in a more leisurely fashion in the shadowy moonlight. The old bell reverberates with the soft echoes of the Chapel Choir from the direction of the Conservatory directly behind it, with the lusty echoes of ani- mated cheering from the direction of Pritchard Gymnasium to the west, with the deafening echoes of some explosion in the chemistry laboratory oi the Science Hall still farther to the West. The bell is a part of everything that takes place-it reverberates with the echoes-soft, lusty, deafening-of all that happens on the Eureka Campus. lf, 01,4 5117, ggi! Q46 M gui! in The spirit of Eureka is indeed alive in the old Administration building The oldest building on the campus, it has served as class building, student recreation center, club meeting-place, gymnasium, and finally as adminis- trative and business offices and library. The ancient structure once resounded with excited cheering. It is now a comparative quiet place and only breaks forth with loucl lament between classes when students and faculty congregate there and occasionally on registration days when students stand in line for hours in the business office. The college bulletin boards located in the main hall attract much attention of course. The library, too, on the second floor is a favorite place of all students. .',-- ,V ,V ,A ,-, ..-, - amp. t, -,A . '15 '4f., h 4,,,,x.:,. ,- , X .

The old dormitory was several decades ago the private home of a wealthy Eureka family, the Fords. After the death of their daughter, Lida, when she was but a girl of l2, the family gave their home to the college to be used as a girls' dormitory named for their daughter. ln this original building, when it was owned by another family back in the l83O's, Abraham Lincoln used to stay the night. lt was during the time he was riding the Illinois Circuit as judge. Lincoln was a friend of the familyg he enjoyed the spacious fireside and friendly conversation of the household. He was a frequent visitor there. The original building burned to the ground in the '9O's and was replaced by the large, white, Colonial-front structure which is the oldest of the two girls' dormitories on the Eureka campus today. The foundations of the present building are those of the original structure. The spaciousness, friendliness, and hospitality still persist at Lida's Wood. The girl's rooms are large and inviting and are very attractively and comfortably furnished: they are always open to visiting friends of students and to alumni and former students of the college. Many teas, banquets, dances, and other social affairs take place at the "Wood". Organizations hold their meetings and social gatherings there. The comfortable and beau- tiful parlor is the scene of many a gala affairp the large and lovely dining room is the setting for many a sumptuous banquet. The parlors and dining room were recently completely redecorated by the mother of the present president of the college, Mrs. May Dickinson, who at one time herself lived in Lida's Wood while a student at Eureka. Yes! Lida's Wood embodies the spirit of Eureka-fully and gloriouslyl f"A fri? fs 9 L., i mx Truly was Dr. Samuel Glenn Harrod the embodiment of the Eureka spirit. lt is for this rea- son that the 1942 Prism Staff has chosen to dedicate this year- book to his memory. o o 6621, C QZLU VL Dr. Harrod loved Eureka as dearly as he loved his own life. He gave the best years of his life to Eureka. Having completed three years at Abingdon College, he came to Eureka for his fourth year. He graduated from here in l903. Not long after his grad- uation, he returned to teach his beloved classics at his own alma mater. He was veritably a "gentleman of the old school". The Latin language, the Greek language, the literatures of both, the history of the ages, classics of all time-these were the charm and the exigency of life for him. In his own words, he believed that "grappling with a difficult subject and mastering it developed a tough mental fiber, capable of mastering anything." He studied all his life. He read voluminously, unceasingly, untiringly. A good book brought a sparkle to his eye. His was the supreme joy of knowledge. His students were continually delighted by the prolific background of information which he brought to his teaching. His humor is famous. His wisdom is re- nowned. His students cherish the memory of hours spent in his classes as some of the most profitable they ever spent. His method of teaching was that oi a great challenge to the student's intellect. His method of teaching was that of a learning, opened new vistas to the student. By making known to his students what latent personal powers they possessed, by showing them the pos- sibilities of human comprehension, by laying bare to them the vastness of the world's knowledge, Dr. Harrod created within his students the relentless thirst for knowledge. This was his challenge. Although gruff in manner and formidable in appearance, his was the most sympathetic of natures. Kindliness, gentleness, understanding of human problems-these were his. His was a rich and abundant life. His was a powerful personality. HIS lS A GLORIOUS MEMORY. HIS WORDS SHALL LIVE. "This ivy chain upon which our hands are set is a symbol of that tie of love, as real and strong if not as tangible, which binds the sons and daughters of Eureka College to each other. But the full symbolism of this ivy chain is deeper yet. The ivy not only binds, it reaches ever upward. It typifies also, then, the finest aspiration of our hearts, the aspira- tion reaching upward to the ideals of our Alma Mater, the venerable nurse of our souls." "l think that you are particularly fortunate in having attended a Christian college where there is a vital faith in one sure unchanging loving power which still rules the world. We like to call this power Our Father and Our God. We believe that His hand has shaped and is today shaping the course of history. We believe the strutting, pasturing, ranting, self-styled dictators cannot hinder the accom- plishments of God's eternal purposes, although, alas, they are causing untold suffering, ruin, and bloodshed in their puny striving." "To college men and women college loyalties are strongest. There is the loy- alty of college friends. When you are five or ten years out and chance upon a churn of college days in the throng of some metropolis or in the general store at some crossroads village there will be re- joicing beyond measure because not only have you met one into whose ready ears you can pour tales of long ago and from whose lips you can drink in racy remin- iscences, but one whose hand you can clasp and feel full of confidence. No, there is nothing quite so sweet as the friendships of college days. My earnest wish for you of i938 is that you have laid up for yourselves a goodly treasure of these."

T ' Q -ff? , I fx , 1 f" 2 a year eagerly anticipated and which came too S ,- ' soon for a small but high-spirited group of seniors. f f lt was the year full of special privileges and ex- pected leadership. They took it in stride and handled situations with confi- dence and poise. They were right on hand to enjoy Senior Sneak Day, hid- ing the Fruit Cake from the juniors, to torment the freshmen on Flunk Day, to display their talent in the Senior Play, "No Time for Comedy," and to be guests at the lunior-Senior Prom. When they were freshmen, they were called "naive, little darlings, typi- cal of freshmen all over the country." They were just as puzzled by the baffling rites of orientation, Freshman Days, and rush week, as the freshmen who still pour into Eureka each September. They learned the customs of the college, discovered that "Eureka" means "Lo, I have found it," and came to revere the traditions of the elms. They were active on campus, in fact, they were "activities" people. Academically, forensically, musically, athletically, they distinguished them- selves. They were in the presidents' chairs of their Greek organizations. They headed the honorary fraternities on campus. They edited the Prism and the Pegasus. They worked in all religious activities. They did faithful duty on committee after committee. They took orders and gave them. They became noticeably serious toward the end of their junior year when they realized that they had already assumed some college leadership and were going to assume the bulk of the rest of it before the year was over. They bore up admirably. They were real leaders. Much has happened to the college and to the world since that September day in 1938 when they first came to Eureka. They saw the last year of the running-course system at Eureka and were among the first to try the Con- centrated Study Plan. They bade a fond farewell to President Raymond McLain and saw the advent to Eureka of Dr. Burrus Dickinson as president of the college. They saw many faculty members come and go. They are happy that they were privileged to know Dr. Samuel Glenn Harrod, but sad that a member of their class was the last to complete a major under him. Last year when the class of l942 participated in the Ivy Ceremony, it was with joyful, yet sad, hearts, for they knew that not much time remained to them 'neath Eureka's dear elms. The Ivy Ceremony again approaches. Graduation will bring both gladness and sadness. U N20- Charley, the Prism ed ..... "Whatta' you say, Bogey?" .... Billy the Kid rides again' - . .

Things like seeing the sun come up as you stagger over to the gym to rehearse--W-the first bewildering daze Cforgive it, please? you spent on campusfBurgess Hall when the heat was low -the library when some scatterbrain decided to turn it into a three ring circus--ethose week-end nights when everyone but you is out and the house was like a tombe-noons when someone plays a hauntingly familiar tune that you wish you'd never heard before-you fill in the rest. Sentimental, am I? Well, that's an alum's privilege, you know. Smith ran for the Lamba Chi's. 0 M E - A L U M S STUDENT'S VIEW Homecoming? Well, confidentially it's a way to find out what it means to be tired--to begin with, they make you get up at five to rehearseeperson- ally, I like to sit up, if I must see the sun rise. And that's not all--there are costumes to beg, borrow, or steal: and there's the float. Ah! Those floats---those fantastic creations of crepe paper that are guaran- teed to fall apart when they pass the reviewing stand.

'Each item was carried out in a line shape, even to the "tug" and to the "hanging in the tree." The Lambda Chi Alpha alums were greeted by the sharp piercing look of a Red Devil as he prepared to eat his "Elmhurst Pirates." However, an- other glance revealed the ever-greet inq hope of every alum "Welcome Herne Grads." The members received many compliments on their hard Work, hut evidently the judges didn't think the "Pirate soup" was quite hot enough. Tau Kappa Epsilon really swept through llemecromina. lt even was evident in their house decoration of "Eureka Cleans Up Elmhurst." The hig "Red Devil" at the helm ot the carpet Sweeper was striking and very impressive in its thought. An excel- lent piece of work. EUREKA'S "DUTCH The mornina of September 15, 1941, a Buick drove up in front of the Administration Buildina. Out stepped one ol Eureka's most famous alumni. lt was the first time Ronald "Dutch" Reagan had visited his Alma Mater since he graduated in 1932. Our janitor, "frleinie" Brubaker, was the first to areet Reagan, with his usual salutation, "Hello, kid, how are you?" Members and officers of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity rushed up to present him the badge of honorary office in his chapter. President Dickinson then es- corted Reagan to the Chapel where students and many visitors filled the auditorium for the first convocation of the school year, and a very special one it was. lt was here that Reaaan displayed his outstandina personality by the aenuine way he took part in the proaram. He araciously accepted the aotd football presented him by Prof. Griff Lathrop, his former athletic director, for his portrayal of Cteorae Gipp in the movie "Knute Rocknef' Reagan explained to a thrilled colleae audience how he obtained the part of Creorae Cfipp. He asked the producers for the part but did not get it until he showed them a photo of himself in a ljureka football suit. This caused them to reconsider the decision that he did not look like a football player. The cheerleaders, knowing that Dutch had been a cheerleader here, persuaded him to take off his coat and lead a few Eureka yells. This must have brouqht Reaaan's school days back to him again. Wlieri it was his turn to speak, the audience became alert and very attentive. He re- called many ol the happy and carefree colleqe days that he had spent at Eureka. ln sincerity he said, "l've sure missed these ivy covered walls," and was silent for a minute. The audie ence was spellbound. Certainly every member of that group from a two-year-old child to one of the old retired professors felt the spirit Dutch Reaaan had for his alma mater. Then in a more jovial mood he talked of Eureka's back campus in the spring time and how he enjoyed those "Flunk Hill" parties. He recalled one time when he and some of his fraternity brothers put a cow in the College Library the niaht before Halloween. He also recalled how one of his friends and his qirl accidentally were locked in the school newspaper office all niaht, and of the scandal it caused. He smiled and said, "I auess a little true confession is Crood for the soul." TREAT-A'LA REAGAN Reagan looked out at his audience, reached in his pocket and pulled out a pair of glasses, put them on and said, "You're a fine audience, and l'd like to see you too." Every- one laughed, even his manager, who was supposed to see that Reagan didn't wear his "cheaters" in public. With his hair all mussed and his glasses on, Reagan looked more like a typical college student than a high-salaried movie star. ln closing Reagan advised the students to stay in college as long as possible, and to remember that Eureka is the biggest and best little college in the world. From the Chapel he, his manager, and President Dickinson proceeded to the girls' dormi- tory for lunch. That afternoon he journeyed to the football field where he joined in football practice, much against his manager's advice. He indicated he had a good time playing' football with the team, and the team certainly could say the same. From the football field a group of sorority girls persuaded him to go riding with them. So in a brightly painted Ford, six girls and Reagan drove to uptown Eureka. "Mikes" Sweet Shop, a favorite college hangout, has never done a business like it did that day as Reagan set up the cokes. He drank two root beers himself. At the Lambda Chi Alpha house he signed year books from his school years. Then to the TKE House to rest, but he did everything there except rest. He chatted with his fra' ternity brothers, and made a tour of the House. Reagan ate supper in the TKE House then told his many friends and admirers goodbye. He drove over to the college campus to pose by the old school bell for a picture. As the cameras flashed he stood by the bell looking up. Many memories of his school days must have filled his mind. When he turned away in his heart rang a familiar melody: 'Neath the elms upon the campus glorious to view Stands Eureka alma mater faithful, tried, and true. Lift the chorus speed it onward ere our voices fail, Praise to thee, O fair Eureka, Praise to thee all hail. THE GRIND AND FRESHMAN WALK Well, welll Here comes that old word . . . popping up again, which brings te the Freshmen a look of bewilder- ment . . . The "Grind" is an old and firmly established Eureka College custom, whereby all the students mingle with the faculty in a good old-fashioned "get-together" and become acquainted with each other. The only pro- reguisite needed to participate is a well-flexed, congenial handshake, and a "flashing" smile. After about half an hour of hand-clasping, the remainder of the evening is spent at an allbschool fo'n1al dance. And thus at the end of the evening . . . the Grind will be stamped in the memory of every Freshman's mind . . . as well as his hand . . . and there comes to him as to all the new students the Congeniality and equality which is the very life of the campus. "Freshman Walk" is the event every sophomore looks forward to on coming back to school. He remembers how he felt when he was asked twith the threat of a paddlel to give his interpretation of the Dance of Spring in swing time. The Freshmen are first conveyed to the gym by the sophomores of respective organizations then the august seniors take over. The fate of each Freshman is decided by the Senior class prexy and his committee. Each Freshman in turn is brought up in front of the Seniors and asked to perform in some manner fitted to his talents and personality. The discipline is in the hands of the "yearlings" who go about with a pompous air indicative of their standing. Then the Freshmen are taken in couples for a one-way ride of not less than seven miles -sometimes. About five or six e'clock a. m. the greenies some dragging home foot-sore and very tired but still no one regrets his experiences. FLUNK DAY FLUNK DAY! The college whistle blew. The exodus began. Students poured out of classrooms and out of the buildings into the fine, misty rain that was beginning to fall . . . across the campus to the Chapel they went . . . to hear the proclamation of the high and mighty Seniors . . . for this was their day . . . to do with it as they saw fit. At the Chapel the underclassmen heard the proclama- tion of the Senior class president . . . that there were to be no more classes for the day . . . that the Freshmen boys were to come dressed as girls and vice versa . . . that the Sophomores were to appear as hoboes and bums . . , that the Iuniers wee to be clazi as members of the YOunger generation. By the time everyone had appeared the rain was pouring down as though the sky had opened UD . . . so the usual snake-dance to the business district was dispensed with . . . as was the walk to Flunk Hill . . . which is always so much enjoyed . . . not by the Freshmen, perhaps, because they have to walk, Instead, games were played and an amateur program entered into by all the students. Following the picnic dinner the annual battle between the Freshmen and the Sophomore took place in the lug- oi-war . . . with the Sophomores Coming out on the losing end oi the story. Alter the excitement oi this had quieted down the students journeyed to the business district where they went to a free show . . . then in the evening the festivities were drawn to a close with an All-School dance with music furnished by the best and most well- lcnown bands and orchestras oi the country . . . by means of recordings and a record-player. Thus came to a close one of the highlights of the social season and the ob- servance of one of the oldest tradiiions of the College . . , and the first time in recorded history that Flunk Day was observed on a day when the rains came pouring down, GO College Quartet Serenaclos Sheridan Despite her feud Star Entertains Collegians- Ronald Reagan, Warner with the Harvard boys, Ann Sheridan is a favorite with Bros. star, explains picture-making on the set of "King's rollrqo boys everywhere but Cambridge.

On Monday, lune 8, 1941, there embarked from the city of Eureka a l938 green Ford sedan and its exuberant passengers, Charles Pifer, Bill Busch, Loyd Lovell, lack Magnuson, and "Chief" Margaret Mundell Tomb. Yes, it was the Eureka College Male Quartet with director and accompanist starting on their annual summer concert tour-Y---this time throughout the entire Western United States. With them they took an itinerary for two months, a "little" money, and plenty of ideas. "lt is rather difficult to describe all of our experiences, but I particularly recall the thrill of visiting Warner Brothers movie studios in Hollywood we thanks to Bonald Beagan. We were certainly glad to see Beagan working before the cameras and to be introduced to such famous notables as Ann Sheridan, Fredric March, Harry Davenport, and Sam Wood. Beagan and Sheridan were working hard on a scene from "Kings Bow." After adjust- ing ourselves to the situation we could readily understand the necessity for the strict rules that movie studios enforce, and therefore felt very proud to be allowed on the set. Thanks to our guide, a press agent, we were permitted to visit the set of "One Foot in Heaven," starring Fredric March. After this, we went to the "cutting room," the business offices, and the property department. We will always be grateful to "Dutch" Beagan for the wonderful time. incidentally, Ann Sheridan proved to be one of the most gracious and interesting women this group had met in a long time. As I said before, it would be impossible to give you a day by day description of the trip. However, here are some of the other highlights: An evening concert at Hollywood Bowl: our visit and invitation to sing at the Carlsbad Caverns, spending the Fourth of Iuly at Grand Canyong climbing a mountain in old Santa Fey San Francisco with its Chinatown: swimming in the Pacificg viewing the Tetonsg being week-end guests at Lake Tahoe, visiting picturesque Cheyenne, Yellowstone Park, Salt Lake City, and Old Mexicoy and visiting relatives in Des Moines, Iowa.

I noticed a group of college students who stood in line for half an hour waiting for free pumpkin pies . . . each one having received a pie, they proceeded to again get in line and accept another . . . Extra excitement was furnished Saturday night when the lights went out at Mike's. Wow! lt didn't cause much commotion, though, as everyone wanted to take advantage of the opportunity. The scene of the finale was Pritchard Gymnasium on Eureka College campus where the Grand Festival Dance was held with Bob Strong and his famed orchestra playing in person for the huge crowd. 1441 The college and the city of Eureka have many similar traits . . . one of these being progressiveness. During the year l94l the populace voted decidedly in favor of a lake to be built on the outskirts of the city. Construction began immediately and this spring the lake was put into use. The location of this new project is ideally situated south of Eureka. One could not wish for a more picturesque view-what with nature lending her sloping hills, wild flowers, and sturdy trees that surround this vast work of man. Methinks that the college students have discovered a new location for kegging, swimming, fishing, etc ..... and three guesses that on a certain day next fall you will see a lot of freshmen walking to a new "flunk hill."

Verne Morris Bill Shasteen l Eureka vs. Shurtleii The first game of the season was played against the mighty Shurtleff ag- gregation from the southern part of the state, who proved to be too much of a match for the Fighting Red Devils. Kitz- steiner and Weinstein and Silver, as well as the rest of the linemen, sparked the game and gave the rest of the team confidence . . . but Shurtleff came through with a win by a score of 19-D. Eureka vs. Elmhurst After a nip and tuck battle the Red Devils emerged victorious in the sec- ond game of the season by defeating Elmhurst before a large crowd of Home- coming spectators to the tune of 13-7. This game was keynoted by the bril- liant strategy, and passing and punt- ing of the Devils' mighty quarterback, Bill Shasteen. Eureka vs. Aurora The third game of the season was marked by the fine plays executed by Myers and Parr, with the rest of the team which resulted in the scoring plays for the Red Devils. Despite the difficulty encountered in identifying the players because of the sea of mud in which the battle was waged, the Red Devils emerged form the fray victorious by a score of 7-O, over Aurora. -50.- .FOR EUREKA RED DEVI Eureka vs. McKendree Behind the brilliant blocking oi Stein and Silver the Red Devils were put in the scoring column by Ray Myers. Later in the game Myers scored again on an intercepted pass, to beat Mc- Kendree by a score of 13-0. Eureka vs. Carthage The most exciting and hardest fought game of the season was the battle against the strong Carthage team which was fought to a scoreless tie. This game was sparked by the fine tackling of Donal Bradley and the ex- cellent blocking of Floyd Arnold. Eureka vs. Wheaton The game with Wheaton was played in the mud, but the Red Devils, sparked again by Shasteen, Stein, Waggoner, and Parr, were unable to defeat the men from Wheaton, who won by a score of 13-7. Eureka vs. Principia The Principia game, postponed be- cause oi bad weather, was played after the regular season ended. The only casualty of the entire season oc- curred in this game when Weinstein received injuries to a collar bone.

Religious activities on Eureka's Campus were at a new high this year. The Fireside Fellowship Group, the Ministerial Group, and The Student Council of Religion in their respec- tive organizations held regular meetings. The Fireside Fellowship Group under the leadership of Donald Littlejohn, later of laines Williams, met each Sunday evening. ln the autumn, while the weather permitted, meetings were held around the campfire on back campus or at the new lake. As winter closed in, the faculty advisers of the group opened their "firesides" to the organizations. Topics of per- tinent religious interest were discussed. Many programs were presented at out-of-town churches by the Fireside group. Churches of Pekin, Peoria, Minonk, and Eureka were hosts to the group. Vesper services were presented at the Eureka Christian Church, and a pro- gram was presented at the Eureka Home for the Aged. Participation was open to all Eureka students. Reverend Donald Salmon was constant adviser to the group. The Ministerial Group met to discuss problems peculiar to students of the ministry. Members were the ministerial students of the college, Many of those students already had parishes. Before the year was over, several of these fledgling ministers went off to join the country's armed forces. Mr. Raymond Aylsworth and Mr. Donald Salmon were advisers to the ministers. The Students Council of Religion planned the campus religious activities for the year. The Fireside Fellowship was organized and the annual Passion Week Services were planned by the Council. Mr. Raymond Aylsworth, Miss Anne Greene, and Mr. Donald Sal- mon were advisers to this group. The Y.W.C.A. is the group directing religious and cultural activities for women on Eureka Campus. Meetings are held twice monthly. Miss Anne Greene, Mrs. Harold Ave, Mrs. Raymond Aylsworth, Miss Martha Schreiner, Mrs. May Dickinson, and Miss Helen Spence are the group advisers.

Beta Pi Theta is the National Honorary Fraternity on Eureka's campus. Theta Delta chapter of Beta Pi Theta was installed at Eureka College in the school year l925-26. Mrs. Silas Tones, long-time professor of French at Eureka, was instrumental in bringing the fraternity to the campus. The organi- zation is open to both men and women with at least sophomore standing, nothing below a B in French, and the minimum of one advanced French course. During the l94l-42 school year, Beta Pi Theta held two pledging services and two initiations. These "white" services were followed by "white" dinners in Lida's Wood dining roorn. The last initiation was held on a Sunday in May and was followed by a very special alumni dinner at Lida's Wood. Miss Martha Schreiner, fraternity adviser, and Mrs. Victor Vissering were special initiates at that time. Other activities of the year included a tea given for the college faculty and the town alumni of Beta Pi Theta, discussion meetings in l..ida's Wood parlor, talks by faculty members on French history and art, the sponsoring of an all-school party at Lida's Wood, and or "Bow-Sale" at one of the basket- ball games. Perhaps one of the most important accomplishments of the year was the formation of a French Club for college students interested in French, but who do not qualify for Beta Pi Theta membership. Officers for the year l94l-42 were: President, Martha lean Crabtree: Vice- president, Frances Feltery Secretary, Mary Io Acheny Treasurer, Martha Willett: Corresponding Secretary, Elaine Dorsey.

Some gave it thouqht . . . others didn'tg anyway, these ineetinqs were of importance to each and every one of us this past school year . . . and without them our school affairs and activities would not have been so successfully coordinated and completed and carried out. CENTRAL ASSEMBLY As I was passina throuah Bnraess llall l heard alrite a commotion in Room lfl. Witli a second thonaht, I realized that another torrid session of the Central Assembly was heina held. Vlfhile President llarry Marsh pre- sides and Barhara Pierce rapidly re- cords the minutes, the Central Assem- lily acts as the Stndent Governina lledy for the Colleae. The aronp de- cides all necessary reanlations for the Colleae Year. THE PEGASUS On lnriday eveninas, one hears the familiar cry, "Peas Ont." 'l'his means the Colleae paper, the Peaasus has just heen distrilnited. 'l'hronah its col- umns we road the campus news, the ivandal, and all alwout these "Modern Greeks." 'l'here is a lot of work in preparina the "Pea" and Gar Braun, Oil lones, Virail flanks, Virail llinshaw, and llolw- ert Solwelc deserve the hiahest praise for their nntirina efforts to aive the stu- dents a aood school paper. SOCIAL BOARD 'l'he Social Board, composed ot tac- nlty members and representatives of each of the classes, is the holinsman of the social affairs of the school. Ry means of this committee the all-school dances and parties come into existence and are planned and executed. Edith llarrod and Martha lean Crabtree have served as the "Elsa IVlaxwoll's of Eu- reka" durinq the past year. ALPHA EPSILON SIGMA Several years ago an organization interested in dramatics known as the Eureka College Players was organized. It wasn't long until this group expanded and chose the title of Alpha Epsilon Sigma ..... Through all of these years many individuals have proved worthy of membership, played their parts ad- mirably, and passed on into life's work ..... Ronald Reagan, Hollywood star, is one of these members with many roles to his credit ..... He is now the honorary president. Another artist graduate is lulia Beoletto, who gave a concert sponsored by the group. The members set a large Homecoming audience howling with their presentation of "Fresh Fields." . . . . brought into the limelight many underclassmen by pro- ducing six one-act plays .... from this group thirteen new members were chosen. ln the spring, the senior members took part in the Graduation Play "No Time for Comedy." Charles Pifer served as president of the organization and L. E. Norton as director. 62 THE PLAY'S THE THING High on third floor Burgess, there stands Eureka's Little Theatre, and there, We Witness many "miraculous" one-act plays. For this is where We see and judge the talents ot all aspirants who wish to become members of Alpha Epsilon Sigma. This past season we have been served a variety of melodramas, tragedies, comedies, and phantasies. Yes, sir, I always take my date to the One-Acts. We members of the Radio Guild this year have been very active. We are proud ot our own studio where practicing is done for the Eureka College broadcasts over stations in Chicago, Peoria, and Bloomington. We are all members of the National Radio Drama Guild and each summer send qualified students to receive study and more advanced training in Radio work. Bob Kittleson and Prof. Norton have acted as Chief Engineers for this year.

The Young Wonien's Christian Association is a religious and cultural organization open to all college Women. Heart Sister Week, held annually since 1925, is sponsored by the Y.W.C.A. Meetings are held semi-monthly in Lida's Wood parlors. The organization is gov- erned by cr Cabinet which determines the pol- icies and activities of the group. The Y.W.C.A. yearly project is the publication ot the Eureka All-School Directory. The local Y.W.C.A. is connected with the national group bearing the same narne. Representation is sent to the regional conferences and to the national Cien- eva conierence. One of the particularly line events of each year is the presentation oi a Vesper Service at the Eureka Christian Church. The Vesper this year was presented on Palm Sunday as the opening program of the annual Passion Week Services. Miss Anne Greene, Miss Martha Schreiner, Miss Helen Spence, Mrs. May Dickinson, Mrs. R.

This question Was, "Resolved, that the Federal Government Should Regulate by Law All the Labor Unions in the United States." And it was that question that Eureka students spoke extem- poraneously on at Illinois Wesleyan University, and debated at Illinois State Normal and at Manchester College, Indiana. With a history dating back to 1915 when the Eureka chapter was the fourteenth out of the now 163 chapters to be chartered by Pi Kappa Delta, the Illinois Beta chapter prepared for the biennial convention of Pi Kappa Delta at Minneapolis, Minnesota, in the spring. Two debate tournaments were attended --one at Whitewater, Wisconsin, and the State Tournament at lacksonville. On the winter schedule was the State Oratory and Extemporaneous Speaking Contest at Charleston. Coaching the speakers was Prof. L. E. Norton. The six members of Pi Kappa Delta were Frances Felter, Herbert Kohler, Helen Hoffmann, Thomas Tear, Donald Littleiohn, and Gar Braun. Others in forensics were Virgil Hanks, Rupert Thompson, Robert Iacobson, Ruth McGregor, lames Williams, Violet Ruick, Noel Francisco, Frank Kinzie, James Sullivan, and Martha Snow.

But certainly, every college rnust also have a heart as well. This, I believe, is found in the fraternities and sororities. For where, I ask, can brotherhood be stronger, bonds be greater, and American youth be more keenly typified than on "Fraternity Row." mi! ww THE GREEKS R VIVACIOUS LADIES Rush, rush, rush! That's the way we began our year in the fall and that's just the way we've been doing ever since. You see, the first week we were back we had to rush around getting acquainted with all the new girls. Seventeen of them decided to join our ranks. Eleven have been initiated. As long as we had so many girls, we decided to start them off right by teaching them how to work. Delta Pi got first on her stunt, and third on her float at Homecoming. December l7th was the formal. l-low we did work to get our Delta Pi Snow Train all ready for us to enjoy with our current best boy friends. Came February 2lst, such an important day in the lives of all those ambitious pledges. The end of a quiet and uneventful C???l Hell Week and their formal initiation into Delta Delta Pi. Then, in the evening we held a big banquet, just for those new actives. They danced gaily to the music of johnny Dyar's orchestra. just five weeks later, March 27, an all' sorority pledge dance was held in the Wood. The old actives were invited as the guests, Late in April a rush party was held for high school rushees for the new year. On April 25 we held our big annual Spring Formal. We were very fortunate this year again by having our formal at Shore Acres Country Club of Chillicothe. The next week-end, May 2, we had another big celebration. It was Delta Delta Pi's 32nd birthday, and we had a birthday dinner for her, just as we have spreads for all the girls whose birthdays occurred throughout the school year. Roland's Tea Room of Bloomington was the scene of our annual meeting, of course, none of us could possibly forget our Mothers at home, so we had our mothers come here for a tea. Well, l guess that brings us right up to Spring Commencement, etc. We hated to see our two seniors leave us. They were grand girls.

In 1926 this group became the first Illinois chapter of Theta Kappa Nu national fraternity. In the fall of 1939 Theta Kappa Nu and Lambda Chi Alphawfinding that their aims, ideals, and organization were more or less parallel, merged under the name of Lambda Chi Alpha to form the third largest fraternal group in the Greek World, with lO8 chapters in the United States and one chapter in Canada. Among its alumni are men and leaders in all the walks of life. The chapter here at Eureka strives to be active in all the phases of college life . . . in the belief that a well-rounded group of men should be the goal of a fraternity. Scholarship and athletics, music and debate, dramatics and student government, extracurricular and social activities . . . all these find Lambda Chis active and interested participants. Of the social season, the highlight is "Ye Olde Pigge Feste," a dinner dance held in the best of Old English tradition and atmosphere. Less formal but none the less enjoyable is the Novelty Party. In the spring the ahnual Open 1-louse, the Spring Formal, and the May Breakfast top off the social season of the fraternity. Dr. Dickinson, President of the college, and Profs. Rinker, Higdon, and Wiggins, members of the faculty, are members of the fraternity and take an active interest in the chapter. -. 70 .... AMBDA HI ALPHA 1941-42 Harry Marsh .......

Kappa Delta Pi, local sorority on Eureka College campus, became Pi chapter of Delta Zeta national sorority on Feb- ruary 17, 1917. Seventeen girls were initiated at that time. On February 17, 1942, the girls celebrated the silver anniversary with a dinner held at Lida's Wood, when many alurnnae returned. Several charter members of the chapter attended. Martha lean Crabtree, '42, was general chairman for the event. At the Pledge Banquet last tall, it was announced that this year's pledge class was the Silver Anniversary class. Thevactivities of the Delta Zetas are many besides the winter formal, the Christmas party, and the novelty dance. The newly initiated girls played a large part in giving the all-pledge dance. The annual spring formal, biggest function of the year for Delta Zetas, was held in the Grand Ballroom of the Iefferson Hotel in Peoria, Illinois. Another important event of the year was the Mothers' Tea given for Mothers of all Delta Zeta girls on Mothers' Day. Delta Zeta took into membership Beta Phi Alpha national sorority in Iuly, 1941. On Founders' Day, October 24, 1941, a formal banquet was held follow- ing the initiation of eight Beta Phi Alphas. The girls are very fond of their chapter room and of their new photograph of Ronald "Dutch" Reagan which he gave them last fall. Pi chapter is proud to have reached the twenty-fifth milestone.

We've kept our hands in on campus activities, and still remain outstanding in our chief field of interest-athletics. As usual, we've contributed captains to all the major sports, as Well as a number of excellent players. We've lost a lot of men this year. The draft took several of course. Some others decided fighting was a bit more important right now than college . . . they're learning to fly and to fire a machine gun. Letters and postcards come now and then--Georgia, Texas, Tennessee, California read some of the post- marks. We held our usual quota of parties for the year, large ones and small ones, but most enjoyable probably were the house dances-informal get- togethers with cokes and jitterbugging in close harmony. Our Christmas Party to coin a phrase was enjoyed by all. Lida's Wood dining room was turned into "The Honky Tonk Night Club" for our annual "Rogues Brawl"- the function at which we pay tribute to "the lower element." To all these functions our patrons, especially the Aylsworths, attended cheerfully and faithfully, for which we thank them. As for extracurricularse-there are Pals as class officers, on the Peg and Prism staffs, Pals were voted into AES, took part in all-school functions. Next year We'll be in there again . . . adding new laurels to the history of Psi Alpha Lambda. . 74- PSI ALP HA LAMBD 1941-1942 OffiCel'S Eugene Kiick ........ ......... P resident .....---.-.

SHE'S QUITE DISCRE "Oh a Phi O girl is quite discreet: She's just 100 per from head to feet." So echoed the 3rd floor corridor of Magdalene Hall as the Phi Omegas marched up bearing the Homecoming trophy which they had won. In the Pumpkin Festival Cinderella and her pumpkin chariot drawn by six White rats won first of the sorority floats and third in the non-commercial division. Then there was Homecoming and the stunt show, "The Eureka Special". The fall novelty party was December 6 with a theme "Santa Claus' Work Shop." The formal Sweetheart Dance fell on Valentine's day. Initiation with breakfast uptown took place early that morning. The following day the ac- tives and alumnae celebrated the sorority's twenty-second birthday with a dinner at Lida's Wood. May Day came around again and with it the annual serenade and distri- bution of baskets of candy to- the fraternity houses, Gunzenhauser, the dormi- tories, and patronesses. On May 3 Phi O mothers were invited to a tea in their honor. The last day for the l94l-42 school year was brought to a close with the spring's formal dinner-dance at the Shore Acres Country Club in Chillicothe. The sorority members then separated, homeward bound. Some will be back in the fall: others will not. But there will be new members and Phi Omega will continue in the memories of the old. Perhaps a truer, more intimate picture of the sorority could be depicted in a description of its spreads, its "bull ses- sions", and its corridor capers. But without the laughter-without the voices- the underlying thought could not be understood, so it remains for the year's outstanding activities to mirror the spirit of Phi Omega.

Ah, that was a night to remember- but I had better close up Shakespeare and hurry to the parlors so I can get in on the last phrases too. By now I imagine you've guessed that we're having a serenade practice, which is a common thing around here. I see everyone is gathered around in a big circle and sending forth rich mellow tones to be envied by even a Tibbet. Oh, oh, Cahill is looking at Vtfhizzer as though he hit a note that isn't on the record. By the way Admiral Topal looks like he apparently doesn't think it should go on the record either. This was to be a year of years as Fratee Ronald Reagan came back to the house where he was so active during his college days. We wanted to treat him as a celebrityg but before we finished introducing ourselves- he convinced us that he was as regular as they come. Every part of the house reminded him of some incident---a "bull session", a prank, or some other lasting memory. Bob Strong also visited us and he too is tops as an all-around fellow. They both sat on the piano stool over there as we eagerly listened to some of their experiences. Only one other person could command that much attention from us and he is the immortal "I-Iermit". We listen to him every week with all the lights out. I see George and "Buddy" want to sing "Blues in the Night" and about everyone agrees Shullaw sings louder than anyone on this bit of swing. We enjoyed our Winter Formal and Pledge Dance and are looking for- ward to the other highlight of the social season. This event is the Spring Formal and it ought to be tops this year. Over in the corner sits the editor of the "Peg" who is none other than "oil well" Gil. He was given this name through his own making, too. At last we find a little element of harmony from Bob, George, Herb, Corky, Tuffy, and Denny who sing in the College Quartettes. Corky is also the Tyrone Power of the I-louse as he has had many leads in school plays. I suppose the United States Senate is already leaving two seats vacant for our debat- ers, Sir Williams and Sir Kohler. Well, we forgot to mention those big "E's" over in the middle of the roorn. They are the athletes and we are proud of the two lacks, Ray, Tuffy and Keith. It seems as though practice is about over and someone suggested we close with "We're Tenting Tonight." That reminds us of our future, but we're all ready-especially "Little Buck" Roos and our "A" student Paul. -73- E E TAU KAPPA EPSILO 1941-42 Richard Roos ....... Iohn Corcoran ........

After many hours of search it was realized that the spirit of Eureka could never be given a name. And I am certain that you, the students, faculty, and friends who have walked 'neath the elms will agree with me. But, after all, these things are insignifi- cant because the main purpose of each Prism staff is to present a living picture of the highlights of the school year. If, in the future, you glance at this pub- lication and the memories of your college days return-then, we, the staff, Will know our efforts have not been in vain. Because it is you . . .always.
