'Ns Wh 4 Veteran of Four Wars 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 Axis. ere in Lida's Wood and Magdalene Hall have lived girls who are now in the Women's Auxiliaries of the various branches of service and girls who are Waiting for some cer- tain Johnny Doughboy to re- turn from the Wars. Q46 C-QWL 14.4 oo late for the first World War, Vennum Science Hall has taken a front seat in preparing prospective service men for modern and scientific warfare. XV Q14 Me ffm, n the arena of sports We know as Pritchard Gym- nasium the boys now gone to battle have battled time and again in intercollegiate and intramural sports. It was here that many of them developed 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. Forced to take over classes held in Burgess, the Chapel Building is no longer just the music con- servatory and chapel. Except for chapel attend- ance more students make their way into it than ever before. , I w a ' I , ff , 'Eff Q il? JDK '42 Gln!

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 pinochle with some Heinie has been is the oldest person campus. Heinie would be at the store playing of the boys. with the college for about twenty-five years and around there in the service of the college. if ir ir clzcnfly an! Cfaaaeg ir 'k ir 'A' 'A' if 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. ...H- ' BURRUS DICKINSON President of the college since 193 a member of a family which has e 1 associated with the college since t wis founded. Our plans for courses were changed sev- eral times when faculty members left the 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- lington resigned to take a position with the Detroit headquarters of the Camp Fire Girls. In January John Berry and Lawrence Nor- ton left the campus on sabbatical leaves of absence to do graduate study and research, one at the University of Chicago and one at the University of Wisconsiii.

CLASSES uk 'k ir if 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 instructor. 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 youj. 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. 'lr 'A' 'A' ir 'lr 'A' ..15... MARY lIIiI.IiN miciq, n.s.

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. ..20..

Freshman Class 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 of us. 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.

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 April. MUSIC 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, Chester Littlejohn, Edith Harrod, Charles Timm, john Pontius, Paul Dyar, George Wliitcoimmb, Richard Wolfe, and the chorus, Religious Meeting regularly throughout the fall and winter in religious fellowship were the lfireside Group, the Y.W.C.A., and the Ministers' Association, Most important of events for the Y. W. was Heart Sister Week, whieh has been observed every year since 1925. Wfilliam R. Holder, Indianapolis, was the guest speaker for pre-Easter week. He addressed the stu- dent body in chapel services, spoke to the women at Lida's Woocl, to the men at TKE house, and led meetings of several organizations. -W-,ut -- The Cabinet of the Y.W.C.A. The liireside liellowship Group The Radio Guild has meet- ings regularly at which the members write script and produce them. Occasionally its productions are presented in convocation or on radio broadcasts. George Brush, Dan Cahill, and jeane Craw- ford wcre its oflicers this year, and its faculty sponsors Professor Norton and Miss Imig. Radio Guildg Beta Pi Theta One of the honorary fraternities is Beta Pi Theta. Most of us never get into this one, because it has a rule requiring a certain grade in French class to be eligible . . . Anyway, the organization was directed by Miss Schreiner, and has meetings twice a month. At these meetings the members converse in French, or play games using the language, or sometimes hear a report on French literature or art. Its teas are traditional, and occasionally it has sponsored an all- school party. -ge A . K- ,..,, 'Q' if Student Governmentg The Pegasus 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 college newspapers at the convention of the Illinois Intercol- legiate Press Association. Left: The Central Assembly.

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. .,,3g, ,, Football 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 Rogan. 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. 4 3 1 5 Slumling-Rogan, Schneider, Stein, Thommen, Anderson, Silver, Pontius, Kubim Co1cl1 Crossley Miilfllr Row-Krek, Brumns, Ochs, Van Sickle, Bledsoe, Kruse, Parr, Bowen, Smith Bollom Mangold Dean, Waggener, Mathis, Hillman, Harris, Kovack.

Basketball With victories over Illinois Wesleyan and Millikin in the record, one of the most colorful basketball teams in Eureka history developed rapidly as the season advanced. 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. THE GREEKS 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 busy 1943-44. The winter social season was as lively as ever, but spring formals were never scheduled because of the early close of the year.

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 Carol" serenade. 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 college life. -43... 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 Bill Shasteen. 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. Ujljwr Left--Slurlflillg-Boyd Bucher, Howard Stein, Wayrie Loeb.

W 41. -H Delta Zeta 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 in 1941. 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. . .. 47 c- 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 college. 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 PALS. 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. ..4g....

Alsllurg, Hazel Deck Phi Omega 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. -51... 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 Chapter. -52- 'i ..-, F Ufrlwr lmfl-Siulnfing-Ted NVrunn, Bill Rogan, Huwnrd Mar- lcy, Dick Wfolfc.

Freshman Walk 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. Flunk Day 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 college life.
