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.

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

Lida's Wood is dear to the heart of every Eureka student, particularly the
women students. 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
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.
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-
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.
"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

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.

The freshmen have their Freshman Days and the juniors and seniors
their prom. But to the sophomores is left only the bringing-up of those
lowly first year students and the "thrill" of those Sophomore tests. But
perhaps you do not think that that requires organization-dignity-re
sponsibility. lf not, just Watch the all-knowing sophisticated sophomore,
indignantly glaring down at some poor freshman-at least on any other

One day I tossed my hat on the campus at Eureka, and it' came back to
ine with surprisingly different color- -it was qreen. From that day on, I
realized that l was a "Fresl'1ie" and thus had rnany bewildering experiemgeg
to face. Now that 1 look back on those days, I realize that we freshmen had
more fun than any of the rest of the students.
It didn't take long for the faculty and upper-classmen to realize that we
as freshmen had a few qood points. Soon we had representatives on, the foot-

Psi Alpha l.ambda's was one of the
cleverest house decorations the lleme'
coming crowd l1ad seen in years. "Dis
Still is Home" had many "suggestive"
ideas. '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
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.
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
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."
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! 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,

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:

FESTIVAL TIME IN EUREKA

Queen of the Festival. Now Eureka College Coed. Were Here, Too.
Pumpkin center of the world . . . Eureka . . . There are signs on all roads
coming into town . . . they show the date and all details of the Pumpkin
Festival for the year.
Each year the town elects a queen to reign over the festivities . . . Miss
Sue Rinker, last year's queen, placed the crown on the head of Miss Alphalee
Alexander, this year's queen . . . All the business concerns of Eureka and the
sororities and fraternities of the college entered floats in the mighty parade
which was held the second afternoon of the celebration . . . The Phi Omega
sorority received first place for college floats . . . Their theme was Cinderella
and her pumpkin coach with her white rats pulling the coach.
The carnival attracted both young and old . . . College students took
possession of the merry-go-round despite the opposition of the younger genera-
tion of Eureka . , . 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.
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."

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,
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.
.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. Al-
though the entire team played a fine
game they were unable to cope with
the strong Principia team which de-
feated them by a score of 7-6.

THERE'S MAGIC IN MUSIC.
Strike up the band! Once more the
stirring words that echo out the presence
of a band ring out at Eureka. The college
band . . . an institution that had almost
died out was revived this year . . . under
the capable and enthusiastic direction of
"Grift' '... proved to be one of the spark-
plugs of pep and spirit at the basketball
games throughout the season. Augmented
by members from town the organization
proved to be highly successful . . . its con-
certs Were enjoyed and appreciated by
everyone . . . It is the hope ot the students
and other members ot the college that
this organization will continue to endure
throughout the years . . . as a source of
enjoyment and entertainment and inspira-
tion . . . for everyone.
Popular legend has it that the chapel
choir was organized tor the purpose of
supplying music at chapel programs, but
today the chapel choir is much more than
that. lt is as much a landmark or tradi-
tion ot the college as is the ivy on the

several radio broadcasts . . . makes guest
appearances at surrounding churches and

The church of the Disciples of Christ is closely related to the religious life
of the college . . . it welcomes temporary attiliation of students belonging to
other denominations . . . Without interruption of membership in the home
church . . . students assist the pastor frequently in conducting the Sunday
services . . . many students are members of the choir . . . several faculty
members are on the board of elders and deacons.
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 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-
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:

OUR CAMPUS COMMITTEES
All of the students read the Bulletin Board in the Ad Building this past

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
Charles Pifer served as president of the organization
and L. E. Norton as director.

"Debaters to the left of me and debaters to the right of mel" cried the
distracted librarians as Eureka's forensic representatives sought facts on the
debate question for the 1941-42 season. 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.

There are many things that are referred to
as the structure of a college-the ivy-covered
walls, traditions, the faculty, and intensified
study. 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."
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
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.
Be seeing you at Delta Pi summer camp!

WE RE ALL GOOD FELLOWS
This fraternity was founded in 1914 as Kappa Sigma Phi. 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.

E DREAM GIRLS OF
This has been an extraordinarily big year for Pi chapter of Delta Zeta,
as it is the 25th Anniversary year. 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.

CAL BOYS MAKE GOOD
Another year in the history of Psi Alpha Lambda is about finished . . .
were about ready to dot the last "l" and turn the page.
lt's been a big year, full of life, every day of it. 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-
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.

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
The fall novelty party was December 6 with a theme "Santa Claus' Work
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.

E'REBOLD,BADT K S
"We're bold bad Tekes, we're wild desperadoes, hail to-" and so on
into the night the fellows bellow forth with the song that everyone first joined
in singing when we won Homecoming. 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.

I-lowever, the most difficult of all prob-

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-
