This stately old building has three times before heard
the tramp of marching feet as fellows from the student
body answered the call to colors. This time, in Wox'ld
War II, members of both sexes answered the call of
duty and took their places among the ranks to do battle
with the Axis.
Erected in 1858, its mortar was hardly dry when
it saw most of the men in college and one faculty
member leave to battle in the war between the states.
Again in its fortieth year, "Remember the Maine"
probably rang through its corridors as the war cry of
that period just as the nation now does its best to
"Remember Pearl Harbor."
During the first World War the building stood
'neath the elms upon the campus and saw the mem-
bers of the S.A.T.C., Student Army Training Corps,
that was quartered on campus march ptlSC as they went
to and from their classes and drills. This Corps was in
addition to those students who saw active duty in other
cantonments and overseas.
Following the war the structure saw one of the
greatest periods of prosperity in the history of the
College. Although the student body of the college fell
down to 142 during the war, in 1924 an all-time record
was set for enrollment.
In this the second NVorld XVar the college which
centers around the Administration Building has an-
other sag in enrollment. It is quite likely that the
building will still be here to welcome back the re-
turning studcnts who have seen service against the

the fine bodies required for the ordeals of war.
Burgess Hall has gone to war. At least it has
felt the effects of wartime restrictions on heating,
for in mid-winter it was vacated and the classes
formerly meeting there were sent to the science
hall and the chapel.

. . . . . one of the things I can remember the best about my college
days is the old guy who was the engineer and general handyman
around Eureka. He was sort of like that old Sarge of ours when it
came to overseeing a job that had to be done. I worked for him at
the heating plant. Easy to get along with, that's Heinie. We always
just called him Heinie. His right name was Henry Brubaker. He
was the only one on campus who would walk right into the presi-
dent's office smoking a cigar. Sometimes he did leave the cigar just
outside the door on the radiator, though.
I was still there at the time the Japs bombed Pearl Harbor, and
I can remember the time that Heinie was going to put up a flag on
the campus flagpole. Just a few days after Pearl Harbor, Heinie had
orders to dig up a flag from the storeroom in Burgess. Out he came
and was going to fly the flag. About that time somebody noticed that
the flag contained only 46 stars in the blue field. It was one of a
vintage before 1912.
And did that old college truck take a bcatin' with old Heinie at
the wheel! He always carried baggage and stuff from the bus sta-
tion to the college for new students. Tuesday and Saturday nights
you could always see the truck parked in front of a little store about
a block from the

The concentrated accelerated plan kept
us busy this year, from the early start on
August 31 until the commencement on
Easter Sunday, with only one real vacation
at Christmas time and a short breather
after Thanksgiving. Some of us kept at the
classes for a fifth term, too, which was made
notable by the rainiest month of May in
years and years.
For most of the men most of the time
this year classes were mathematics, physics,
navigation, or some other war subject. It
was not an easy year for them.

Our plans for courses were changed sev-

campus. It started in November when the
Army came in and took Mr. Wfilmington
and Mr. Kipp. Then Miss Telleen and Miss
Spence left us for matrimony, and Miss Mil-

Detroit headquarters of the Camp Fire Girls.
In January John Berry and Lawrence Nor-

absence to do graduate study and research,
one at the University of Chicago and one
at the University of Wisconsiii.

The Class of '43
The Class of '43 will find its place in the
college archives with one of the shortest
lists of members in the roll book. When an
entire world goes on- the warpath college
seniors are scarce and are almost as much
on the ration list as coffee, sugar, and beef.
Bob Kittleson, who was to have been our
president, put on an Army uniform instead
of returning to Eureka in the fall. As vice-
president "Doc" Mracck became our leader,
but he went to the Navy in December, and
our secretary, Beth Brown, became our
presiding officer. We were just a little slow
in getting organized, but before the year
was over we had more than the usual class
solidarity, and we carried on such traditions
as Flunk Day, Freshman Walk, and Senior
Sneak Day without a hitch.
Two of our number, Harold Bowen and
James Mracek, were in uniform before the
year was over, and could not be with us for
the graduation exercises on Easter Sunday.
Howie Stein, Bill Welsh, Harold Deck, and
Tom Tear are soon to join the forces of war.
Mary Moats graduated in mid-year and
immediately became a school teacher, Edith
Harrod received an appointment to finish
the year for Eureka High School just after
she graduated, while Beth Brown had her
hands more than full the last two terms
carrying on her classwork and teaching at
Congerville. Ruth VanAlsburg, Frances
Felter, and Jeane Crawford are scheduled
to become business women in Chicago.
Betty Jane Lingenfelter is to be a hospital
Marriages have come to our class in more
than the usual number. Bob Riggle and
Harold Bowen went off the eligible list even
before the senior year, Harold Deck and
Mary Helen tied the knot this spring, and
several more of us have rather definite plans.
We intended to give a Senior play but
every time Edith and Jeane got together to
write it-it was more "play" than play. If
it were finished, the action would have been
in an eleemosynary institute fbug house to
Senior meetings at the Lambda Chi House
were lots of fun too-more said than done
but social gatherings are nice too.
We managed to wiggle our way into the
ranks of the alumni about two hours before
we graduated. How to dispense with the
ivy ceremony this year because of the Easter
Sunday prelude of the flood. We may have
been small in number but we'll be mighty
in force felt round the world.

As I recall the Junior class, l remember them as a swell bunch. Those that are left
on the campus are perfectly capable of leading the other classes next year through this
time of crisis. Many of this year's class have joined the Army, Navy, or as in one
instance the WAACS. Several in the class were marriedg some became engaged. Some
started late in the year because of defense jobs or the part which they were doing
in the production of tools of war. As a result several of the class were in school fifth
term in order to catch up, as it were, with those that started at the beginning of the
school year. Some will not become members of the Armed Forces, and I feel certain
that they will carry on the traditions and duties of the Senior class for those of their
classmates that cannot be with them next year, and in this way carry on for those
that are carrying on for the good of all mankind.

when Harry Muffley and Gordon Rice went into the Navy
and Army, but most of us were here for at least three
Now, Jack McGuire is in the Army Air Corps, Dan
Cahill and Bruce Bates are learning to become Naval
Flyers. Robert Megginson and john Waddell are in train-

other men in the class are in the Army or Navy.
Most of the girls in the class stayed right through the
year. Carmen Carpenter had to move to Washington,
D. C. at Christmas time. Sue Rinker left to become a
Geology specialist at the University of Michigan. Marie
McLean became a school teacher. At least five members
of our class are planning to teach next year.

Our class was a little below normal in size because of
the war, but as for quality we have no apologies to make,
and some day we expect to make our Alma Mater proud
In the fall our men had more than the usual amount
of freshman confusion with all of the announcements
about how to enlist in the reserves, but after the recruit-
ing officers had made their visits, most had been sworn
into Navy V-1, Army ERC, or the Marines. Our number
diminished as men left for the Army from time to time,
but most of us finished the year.
We furnished three of the stars of the basketball team,
and had our full share of representatives in the plays,
choir, and other activities.

he organized activity life of the college which has long
served as an incubator of personal initiative and leadership among
Eureka students, encountered some obstacles here and there be-
cause of the war, but it kept going. If manpower was lacking
in football, this shortage was balanced by the brilliance of a
basketball team which will not soon be forgotten. The Pegasus
took the spotlight in intercollegiate matters by winning the all-
around state contest. Plays, opera, choir, quartet, and other
organizations kept their place on the calendar. Debate was un-
able to survive the loss of several candidates to the army, and
the absence of Coach Norton who was on sabbatical leave. Base-
ball had no chance for a season with Commencement coming in
At the heart of musical activities, as usual, was the
chapel choir with Prof. Griff Lathrop as director and
Prof. Wferner Zepernick as organist. Although making no
trips to churches, high schools, or radio stations this year,
the choir sang for chapel and on various occasions in
Eureka, and formed the nucleus of the chorus for "The
Messiah," in which ,lack Dyar sang the bass solos.
The two quartets flourished and sang hither and thither
until April when Mrs. Tomb decided that so many had
gone to war that the season should close. In the first
quartet were Gustin, Littlejohn, Dyar, and Riggle flater
Wfhitcombj, and in the second quartet: Bahan, Wfolfe,
Megginson, and Sullivan.
Two operas, "Trial by juryn and "Cox and Box" were
presented by the music department on February 22, the
characters being portrayed by Jack Dyar, Russell Gustin,

Three organizations that have much to do with activities of
the students are the Central Assembly, the XWon1an's Council,
and the staff of the Pegasus, student newspaper. The first two
deal with legislative matters and the third with publicity. The
Student Council lceeps students in gCl1C1'Ill in line, and the
XVoman's Council handles the agairs of the co-eds. The Pegasus
records the happenings on and off campus.
Under the editorship of .lack Greuling until the mid-year
election, and then Virgil Hinshaw, the Pegasus showed that a
war could not keep it from doing bigger and better things.
It won the first place general excellence award for smaller

The .members of Pi Kappa Delta, National Forensic fraternity were the
speakers of the campus. They earned membership through participation in
contests of debate, oratory, or extempore speaking. I guess from the letters
I'vc received that they didn't enter so many contests this year. Prof. Norton
was the director, and when he left they had a hard time keeping organized.
But usually they enter almost all the tournaments held in this territory. I
suppose almost all the fellows are in the army or navy by now, and are probably
using their training to talk themselves either into or out of a lot of trouble.
You asked about the football team we had this year, so I'll tell you. The
men who had played in 194l'42 expected to come back and play under Coach
Harold Ave, but a few days before college was scheduled to open, he joined
the Army Air Corps as Lieutenant Ave. Practice began under the direction
of Stanford Qjoej Schneider, a member of the class of '42 who had played
four years on Eureka teams. Schneider's coaching career ended after the first
game, when he left for ensign training in the Navy. The coach for the re-
mainder of the season was "Cap" Crossley, who brought to the task experience
as a Big Ten athlete, high school coach, and professional baseball manager.
The schedule was somewhat stiffer than in former years because McKendree
and Aurora had already discontinued intercollegiate athletics. Their spots on
the schedule were assigned to Illinois Wesleyan and the army team from the
Savannah Ordnance depot. Although outweighed by a good margin, the
Eureka team forced Illinois Wesleyan to the limit in the opener, and there was
hope on the campus for a good season. This optimism was dampened when the
speedy Shurtleff team, undefeated in three years, ran around the Eureka line
for seven touchdowns. Not at all disheartened by this experience, the men
worked hard under Coach Crossley, the team gradually improved and scored its
one victory over Savannah Ordnance, then lost by close margins to Carthage
and Principia. In the last game, against Wheaton, the personnel had been so
weakened by injuries and withdrawals that the season closed ingloriously.
The captain was "Lefty" Bowen, an excellent runner and hard driving back
with three years of experience on Eureka elevens. The other backfield men
were Lyle Parr, Arnold Whitler, Roger Harris, George Waggoner and Bill
Keith Walker was at center most of the season, when he left college at the
end of the first term, John Smith and Howard Hillman filled this position.
Brumns and Krek drew the guard assignments most of the season, with oc-
casional help from Bledsoe and Bruce Anderson. Two seniors, Stein and Silver,
were the regulars at tackle, with Don Dean as understudy. Kovack, Frank
Anderson, Kalmer Schneider were the first string ends, but in mid-season
"Frenchy" Thommen and John Pontius, both new to the gridiron sport, put
on uniforms and showed enough aptitude to win letters.

With victories over Illinois Wesleyan and Millikin in the record, one of the
most colorful basketball teams in Eureka history developed rapidly as the
Freshman ace Frank Whitman made more than 25 points a game on several
occasions, and many a basket came from the shots of Ed Thommen, Frank
Kovack, and Warren Collier. Bob Duncan was the fifth regular until he went
into the army, after which Howie Stein took over.
The season rang the curtain on intercollegiate sports for the duration, Coach
Crossley put away his gym shoes, and is now our chemistry instructor.
t was around the turn of the century that the once flourishing
literary societies were quietly buried and that fraternities and sorori-
ties were organized with the destiny of taking a very important
place in the lives of Eureka College students. The last two of the
six were organized in 1920. Two of the six were nationalized in
1917 and a third in 1925.
A year ago the fraternities and sororities looked at the future
with some misgivings, wondering whether coming fall would bring
freshmen to pledge, and there was more uncertainty when the col-
lege announced a pledge quota system, but after rush season it was
evident that the six Eureka Greeks were off to another merry season.
As the year draws to a close the fraternities are putting their
records in storage and their curtains in mothballs, for the men are
going to war, but when peace comes the shingles will again hang
on the chapter houses. Not so with the sororities, their members
have been busy fixing up chapter rooms and making plans for a
The winter social season was as lively as ever, but spring formals
were never scheduled because of the early close of the year.

Delta Delta Pi
In September, 1942, the Delta Pis welcomed back thirteen actives
and a pledge class of five. After a thorough rushing "season" was
closed, the rushes were formally pledged and entertained at a formal
banquet. Several house dances were held throughout the fall, but the
next really swank affair was the Christmas dance, the Hrst of the
College season, held in Lida's Wood on December S. just about two
weeks later the pledges entertained the actives with a party at the
home of Professor and Mrs. I-Iigdon, and afterwards the girls made
the round of fraternity houses and dorms in the annual "Christmas
The next important event on the sorority calendar was "Hell XVeek"
and formal initiation of the pledges. At this time, one new girl was
formally pledged. After the initiation dinner, a dance was in order
for all the Delta Pis and their dates. In February, came the "Victory
Dance," a house dance that was patriotic in theme and decorations.
Instead of the usual Spring Formal, the Delta Pis arranged a "stag"
dinner in the Peoria Room of the Pere Marquette in Peoria, initiating
two more pledges before the dinner. The next Sunday, April 11, 1943,
the sorority held its 33rd annual birthday dinner in the dining room
of Lida's Wood. The new president, Virginia Cain, presided as toast-
mistress, letters were read from the seven charter members, and Mrs.
Ernest I-Iigdon gave a very interesting and humorous account of the
trials and tribulations of being one of the first Delta Pi pledges. Thus
ended another successful year for Delta Delta Pi. No one can be
certain what the next few years will bring, but everyone in Delta Pi
can look back on 1942-43 as one of the most enjoyable years of their
Lambda Chi Alpha
We started the year with the chapter in excellent condition but due
to the draft and the fellows in ERC being called to active duty we
lost most of our members.
The first of September found fourteen actives returning to the house
all looking forward to a successful year. After the smoke cleared away
at the end of Rush Week we had pledged our .maximum quota, fifteen
men. Then we all settled down to a year of concentrated studying,
it says in the college catalog.
The first social event of the year was the annual pledge danceg John
Smith, the newly elected pledge president, was in charge of the party.
Lambda Chi Alpha was well represented in football. Ten of our
boys answered the call of Coach Joe Schneider, there were six letter
men from 201 West Burton.
The high light of our social calendar came with the annual Pigge
Festc done in the best Old English tradition. The music was furnished
by that popular maestro Hinky Mariotti. Boyd Bucher served as toast-
master, the speakers were Professor Wiggins, President Dickinson and
Things were going along fine, except We had been losing boys in
the draft, until the Army announced that the Army Enlisted Reserve
Corps was to be called to active duty on or about April 20. There
were twelve Lambda Chis who left for Scott Field. From then on
things at the house were pretty dead. As school is just about over the
remaining -men are all looking forward to entering the Army or Navy.

W 41. -H
This is the 26th year of Pi Chapter of Delta Zeta. Kappa Delta Pi,
local sorority on Eureka College campus, became Pi Chapter of Delta
Zeta National sorority on February 17, 1917. At that time seventeen
girls were initiated. On February 21, 1943, the girls celebrated their
26th anniversary with a dinner at Lida's Wood. Because of gasoline
rationing there weren't so many alumnae present as in past years. How-
ever, they had a good showing. Frances Felter, '43 was general chair-
man of the occasion.
This year they celebrated a prematu1'e Wliite Christmas fthe only
one we hadj. Ye olde dining room of I.ida's Wood was transformed
into a fairyworld of nature with strings of white snowflakes lining
the walls, and dripping from the light fixtures. A huge evergreen
wreath decorated with red poinsettias and mistletoe dominated the
middle of the dance floor. Bob Smith's orchestra, framed in a white
crepe paper Christmas tree, played for the dance. And a little roly-poly
snow man held a box of mistletoe for the favor dance. Wlmy all this?
It was the DZ winter formal. Besides this, they had two novelty parties
and their annual Christmas party. There was no all-pledge dance or
spring formal this year--but the girls celebrated anyway.
Delta Zeta took into membership Beta Phi Alpha national sorority
The Chapter Room, which is the meeting place for many get-
togethers, is the most beloved room in the dorm. Last year Ronald
"Dutch" Reagan gave them an autographed photo--and this year
they received one of Tyrone Power.
Well, another year has rolled around-and Pi is a year older.

Psi Alpha Lambda
It's been a grand year for the men of Psi Alpha Lambda despite
the war. Although many of our members were called to the aid of
their country we tried to maintain our everlasting spirit with the
We participated as usual in sports, contributing many men to the
varsity sports of football and basketball. We also produced strong
intramural teams which hardly knew the word defeat.
We were well represented in campus activities giving the Pegasus
two business managers and an assistant editor, and taking part in
the other activities of the school.
But more than anything else we were proud of our effort to help
our country. The men who went to fight from the house were james
Mracek, Harold Bowen, Robert Woodin, Robert Megginson, Edward
Sullivan, Jim Sullivan, John Pontius, Maurice Bahan, and Ronald
Asbill. With most of the other fellows signed up with the Army or
Navy or Marines and waiting call to take their places beside the other
With the excellent guidance of our patrons, Mr. Pontius, Dr. Char-
nock, and Dean Aylsworth, we were able to maintain our usual spirit
throughout the year.
Next year we will be here again unless Uncle Sam calls on us to
give him 100 percent support, which we will gladly do, adding new
laurels to the history of Psi Alpha Lambda on the fighting front.

We started the year with only six hard working members whose
labors were rewarded by the acquisition of ten fine ncophytes.
Just as the college streamlined its program for war, so did we,
trimming our schedule and cutting out many of the frills and fluffs
that are ordinarily a part of our yearly routine.
As a theme for our novelty party, which was held on the twenty-
fourth of October, we chose "The Cat and The Rat." This theme
was carried out throughout the decorations and was deemed as one of
our social highlights of the year.
Our annual Sweetheart formal was held on February 14, at Lida's
Wood. The following day, our twenty-third birthday dinner was
held with several alums back.
To replace our spring formal, which action was necessary, due to
the acute manpower shortage and transportation problems, we all
journeyed to Peoria early in April for a dinner at the Marine Room.
A picnic at the Lake was planned for April 13, but we were
rained out, so instead, we held a big spread in the dormitory. This
was our final meeting of the year and it was shortly after this that
we separated with fond farewells and promises to meet again. Though
many will not return to Eureka next year, we will always remember
them as our Phi Omega sisters.
Tau Kappa Epsilon
The fraternity started this year with thirteen Fraters returning from
last year, the Armed Forces taking many of those of last year. To
make up for this, we pledged sixteen men.
We had three Tekes in the one act plays, one Teke in the
three act plays, four are "E" Tribe members, three sang in the recitals,
four are members of the Radio Guild, nine sang in the chapel choir,
and three sang in the college quartets. So you see we were well repre-
sented in activities.
jack Grueling was elected editor of the Pegasus, because of the
absence of Frater Jones, who was editor of the Pegasus last year.
In the Central Assembly, we had George Brush as Vice-President
and Dan Cahill as Social Chairman.
Arnold Wliitler, Don Dean, Keith Wfalker, and Frank Anderson
won letters in football, while Jack Swanson and Wfarren Collier won
letters in basketball.
The Intramural Trophy has once again come to the Teke House.
By winning the championship in intramural basketball, the Tekes took
over the trophy.
The Orchid Formal turned out to be a successful affair for the
Tekes. It was very nicely handled by Frater Arnold Crawley and
Frater George Brush, steward.
Content Dinners for the three sororities, men on the street, men
on campus, for the boys' Mothers on Mother's Day, for "Chris," the
mail man, and a special Christmas Dinner for Mrs. Detweiler, have
helped to complete one of the greatest years for the Tekes of Iota

Freshman Wallis! A hand shoots out of the darkness, shakes you roughly by
the shoulder and sends peaceful sleep flying out the wide-open window. A
gruff voice says "Gitchercloson, ncumwidusfi so you toss on a few things
blindly, and are dragged through the darkness to a brilliantly lit gymnasium.
Here, glaring lights reveal faces without make-up, hair in curlers and pins,
and-other things too gory to mention. As you are shoved forward your eyes
focus blurredly on the line of lordly Seniors sitting on the stage, waiting to
pass judgment on you. But wait-now you're all alone in the middle of the
floor, and that positively-too-cute-to-talk-about fellow you've been admiring
ever since school started is coming toward you with the same lost expression
on his face as you know you're wearing on yours. Then one of the bold bad
Senior guys yells--"0kay, treat him like your long lost husband, youire crazy
about him, he's just gotten his first furlough. Aw, go on, llltlkl' if goof!!
Naw, you're treatin, 'im too cold. I-lere, like flux!" and before you know it
you're on the receiving end of a rather violent demonstration.
But just as you catch your first free breath, someone slings a blindfold over
your face and leads you none too gently to the nearest exit, where you're piled
into a car already full of fellow-victims. As soon as you regain your usual
mental composure, you and a companion are tossed out into one of the many
lonely roads surrounding Eureka, the blindfold removed and the car speeds
away, leaving you to wander around 'til the sun comes up, or something. Fate
has queer way, and after seeing some of the beautiful friendships that are
born every year during Freshman XValk, you can't help wondering if, perhaps,
the Wfalk isn't one of Lady Fate's brain children.
Guess most every college has its own customs and tra-
ditions, things like Flunk Day and Freshman Walk-gosh,
I'11 never forget Freshman Walk! Flunk Day came first
this year, a balmy day in September, Dave said the old
bell began ringin' about 9:30 in the morning, and every-
body but the freshmen knew what was up. Freshmen
usually go around in a daze anyway. The upper class-
men herded them into chapel and told them the attire
they were to assume for the rest of the day.
So about eleven o'clock, Daisy Maes and Li'l Abners
began to blossom out all over the campus and pretty soon
they were all in a parade marching downtown. Guess
they even had a band this year, with a majorette and
everything. Then they did the usual senior worshipping
around the stop-light in the middle of town. Don't think
the townspeople ever get tired of seeing those Freshman
antics--which were probably just as crazy this year as the
year I was a freshman.
And as always, the poor frosh had to walk all the way
out to the lake, while those of the upper classes kept their
dignity by shooting on ahead in cars. Somebody had
remembered to bring along a lunch, so the rest of the
outing was spent in the usual collegiate frolics, among
them the annual Frosh-Sophomore "tug-o-war," which
further humiliated the sophomores. Those freshman must
have been a snappy bunch, seems like I heard of several
senior dunkings taking place.
Everybody was sort of frazzled out by this time, and
a very relaxing wild west thriller was in order at the
Woodford Theatre. Then, as a kind of "last straw," all
those who could still drag one dog behind tiother man-
aged to make a pretty good showing at the Flunk Day
dance, held in the evening at the gym. 'Course, nobody
is any good for weeks after an affair like this, but what's
just one little day of mob violence in our peaceful UD
