Among the new were Professor Moore, teacher of religion and logic, and lVlrs. Long. color and design. Then Eureka reached hack in her own files and selected Robert Pugh for history. Coach Borrow joined the ranlcs at the first of the third term in time to turn out a fine haslcethall team, to coach physical educa- tion courses, and re-organize intramural sports. Gur English department intro- duced Nlrs. Cassin to the composition and grammer classes for the fourth term, and welcomed haclc Miss Anne Greene, our post-war grammarian, in Septemher. Professor Nlullcey joined our faculty forces to teach us how our government is sup- posed to function. and Professor Kern taught his pupils to use a test-tuhe in the analysis of chemicals and elements. It would he anything hut proper to mention the new without running a slight preview of our "old faithfulsf' Dr. Dickinson is still steering old ship Eurelca into straight channels. Professor T. E.

Professors Higdon and Berry are still in the psychology and sociology depart- ments attempting to put accross enough stimulus to extract a small measure of response from the drowsy early morning classes. Professor Rinlcer toolc his geo- logy class to the Qzarlcs this year. The class learned that Kilroy had already heen there. tThey learned more than that follcs, hut they did have funl. Ol' course there is our beloved Mrs-. Hunt presiding over the Wood. and hecoming more popular with each set ol girls. Miss Lazelle is still in Maggie Hall lceeping the girls on the inside and the hoys on the outside. The Music Department still hoasts of Professors Zeperniclc and Lathrop ,- and Mrs. Tomh is still threatening to malce every Freshman into a singer. Professor Norton turned in his usual line performance in producing an out- standing dehate team, hesides numerous other duties. We saw very little of Pro- fessor Charnoclc this year as he was lcept unusually lousy contacting new and prospective students in his Chicago office. Professor Hagan spent most of his time recruiting new students in other parts of the state. '3 FACULTY Laurence E. Norton Speech Henry Brubaker Engineer Ralph Hakes Nlaintenance Nlrs.

Amoung its seventeen graduates are six returned veterans who have iaith- iully returned to their Alma ,Nlater for completion of their education. Three of our graduates entered nursing school to supplement the training they received at Eu' relca. One ol' them is a cadet nurse. Having successfully finished their training they were awarded B. S. degrees on Commencement Day. The Class ol' 1946 enlarged the activities that survived the war years and re- stored many that had heen discontinued. Freshman Xvallc and Flunlc Day were executed with more than the usual vigor. Nluch gossip and many memories were the inevitiahie results ol' two traditions upheld and honored once again. Professor and lVlrs. Berry were chosen as class advisors and iiliellow-schemersn of the year. A product of this coalition was the heautilul day in lN'lay which lent itself to the annual Senior Skip Day. in three cars we invaded a verdent pasture with babbling hroolc and picnic fire for an enjoyalale day away from the classrooms. One ol the restored Ulost-customs" was the hiding of the fruit calce and the accompanying pertruhation oi the seeliing Juniors. The calce was not found and the Juniors cheerfully served the coffee whichaidecl in the consumption of the event at the Junior-Senior Banquet. Following this gala occasion was the first Junior-Senior Prom to he conducted in four years. The Junior Class were excel- lent hosts. The Class is proud of its part in the restoration of student' government in the form of the Student Council. The Baccalaureate service. outdoor commencement exercises. Alumni banquet and traditional ivy Ceremony offered a wonderful climax to the many happy hours 'nealh the elms. Our college will grow, the seniors will travel lar in attainment and miles- hut always a part of each will remain inseparable through the years. I5 THE CLASS or '47 'Way laaclc in l945, when the present memloers of the Junior Class fsome of them, anyhow, came to Eurelca, things were pretty clull ancl lonesome, but in the last year things have really been popping.

Many of us are veter- ans returning to the campus after serving in various branches of the armed forces. We have representatives of our ciass in each sorority and fraternity on the campus and our members are active in neariy every exlra-curricular activity of campus iite. in our first post-war freshman ciass we can boast oi some outstanding person- aiities who participated freely in adapting Eureica's traditions. We haii from piaces aii the way in Canada to South America. in a short fd iiice to teii you what some of us have been doing. Playing basicetbaii were Bob Nelson and "Peachy" Collins. Nelson also piayed basebaii as did Dwight Hendricks, Steve Kiimowsici. and Hscrunchn Richards. We had some actors and actresses too. Paul Reid. Neiie Baxter, Dwight Hendricks, Bob Suiiivan. -Eieanor Schumacicer. Lois Sterrenberg and Don Hart were initiated into A. E. S. At ieast twelve of our mem- bers are preparing for the ministry. Those of us who enjoyed and participated in the social functions on campus are too numerous to mention, but aii of us did have occasion to reiax from fthe ciassroom routine. Xfve have a wide variety of interests academicaiiy and are studying every- thing from Business Administration to the tchristian Ministry. Yes, we are a versatile and active group. We are justiy proud of ourselves as the first post-war freshman ciass of Eureka. Through our Sophomore, Junior and Senior years we shaii strive to iearn more of the Eureka Tradition and shaii en- deavor to keep it ever bright. .2I !. lxlrs. Hunt, flousemollmer 2.

Time pictures on time preceeding pages simow only a portion of time activity wlmiclm was brouglmt about by time developement of timis project. Altogetlmer time college leased ten trailers from time government for veteran imousing. Some studentts werefortunate in obtaining timeir own portable lmousing units and moving tlmem to time site. By tlmese means sixteen students and two faculty members were provided lmousing. Otlmer facilities. including batlming and laundry. were installed in time gymnasium by time college. A sclmeduie is maintained in ltlme community for time use of laundry facilities-botim wasiming and drying. Time lines are always filled. Time development of tlmis tiny collegiate comnnmunity imas added new color and life to our campus. Time lives of tbose wlmo live tlmere imave gained new experiences and friendsimips. For recreation time tennis counts are quite convenient for our trail- er dwellers and are utilized extensively by tlmem. Several clmildren enjoy lbaclvcam- pus' as tlmeir playground. in time spring and fall picnics are often lmeld around time out-door oven only a few yards from time camp site. As in army community. time ia- clies often get togetimer alt somne convenient spot' and excimange gossip. One outstnd- ing feature about time site of our trailer camp is time nearness of time clmapel build- ing. Day and niglmt limere is .music to be beard and our trailer dwellers provide time audience for piano and voice students. IF we take a glimpse into one of our trailers wimat will we see? Well, we will probably find time 'iVlrs.' at lmome. Of course slme can always find sometlming 'to do. VVe see everytlming compactly and neatly arranged.

It our feminine students, here at that time, will vouch for that, l'll continue. Anyhow the records show that a few ol' the men hegan returning to school in early '45. No doulot they attracted a lot of attention. Then the war ended August I4 and the G. l.'s who had long dreamed of returning to Eureka seemed to make our college their first rendezvous after don- ning ucivviesu. VVith them came others who had long possessed aspirations of he- coming a "Joe College." The first milestone was plainly observed at registra'tion ol the 'Znd term Nov- emloer I4. At that time .such well known Eureka College Vets as Gar Braun. Bolo Shearl, Herla Hasenyager, Bolo Kittleson and Frank Kovack re-entered school. lt was at that time that Eureka laegan to take on her old color and life. and the way was paved for those Vets who followed. To refresh youlr memory' let me give you an example ol the spirit and life which these live men brought hack to Eureka. Kovack and Hasenyager were in- strumental in reviving the basketball team. Braun, Shearl and .Kittleson played important parts in reorganizing student government and in their participation in Pi Kappa Delta. Alpha Epsilon Sigma and other school activities. These men are but examples, because there were many who entered school during the remainder ol the year and contributed immensely to revival of the Eureka Spirit. At the end of the school year there was a full schedule of classes and activi- ties. To the Vets who had been on campus in pre-war days things were getting hack to normal. 26 l. The real McCoy 2.

Such activities provide outlets for us to use initiative, accept responsibilities, and generally bring us in contact with groups possessing common interests. At the same time activities afford opportunities for relaxation. enjoyment, and more or less informal training away from the routine of our classes. Also. our personalities may further develop as well as our ideals and atti- tudes. The various forms which our extra-curricular activities are based include varsity and intramural sports, student government, music. speech, debate and journalism. Every student is therefore provided ample opportunity to either participate or derive benefits or entertainment from one or more of these activities. Early in each school year. the student is encouraged to turn his interest toward one or more of the activities on campus. And if he proves himself deserving of it, a reward of membership in such organizations as the "E" Tribe, Alpha Epsilon Sigma, Pi Kappa Delta, and others is offered him. The support and interest in class-sponsered activities is to he expected of each individual since many of these are school tradi- tions to he entered into whole-heartedly lay everyone. 28 Symluolic ol all tlre activities ancl organizations that were revivecl ancl re-or- ganizecl is time E-Trilae. The E-Triloe is an organization macle up ol lettermen ol' varsity lqootlnall, lvas- lcelloall. and baseball. as an instrument lor giving athletics an organizecl represen' tation on campus. its purpose is to promote sporlsmanslmip ancl interest in inter- collegiate sports and to encourage tl1e development ol! lmiglm icleals, principles and sclrolarslmip among our atlwletes. Coacll Barrow, assistecl by Car Braun and Frank .Kovala was responsible lor time re-organization this spring. Officers elected were: Car Braun. president and Boln Nelson secretary-treasurer. All letter-men on campus were considered mem- bers in the re-organization. 12.0 RED DEVILS IN ACTIQN On Salurciay night, January IO.

Though the season was lar from a howling suc- cess it was lilcewise lar from heing a dismal failure. Laclc of experience and little cooperation from the weather man lcept the Red Devil squad from reaching ifts lull capabilities. Rainy weather cut the schedule down to six games and prevented Coach Barrow's men from getting sufficient practice. Highlight of the season was Eurel4a's double win over Illinois State Normats Red Birds, lnoth hy one run margins. Herb Hasenyager was the starting pitcher in all the Red Devil's contests and went the distance in hoth Normal games. Freddy Millard proved to he the team's most consistant hitter. Ninety per cent of this years team were ex-servicemen. Prospects for next year are loright, as only two memhers of the squad. Gar Braun and Harley Man gold. are Seniors. Gar Braun.

It was mainly through the initiative of the Senior Class that the Student Council was re-organized during the third term. Xvith the aid oi Dr. Diclcinson, assisted by Ar- nold Crawley, a new constitution was drawn up and presented to the council which consists ol two representatives from each Greelc organization, the Independ- ent men and the independent women. Dr. Dickinson, Professor Wiggins and Pro- fessor Pugh were the faculty memhers and advisors. The constitution was formally adopted with amendments. Rolnert Shearl was elected as temporary chairman, and Betty Risser as secretary lor the remainder ol the school year. Little business was conducted due to the closing of the school year. However, regular spring elections set up the council so that it will he ready to function next fall. The new officers are: Herbert Hasenyager. President. and George Waggener. Vice-President. a.UJ.i 'a, e.R: THE PEGASUS One ol the few student organizations not disbanded for the duration was the Peg. it seemed to hold a high war-time priority. and justly so. The men and women who toolc leave from Eureka to spend time with Uncle Sam were pleasantly re- minded, lay the regular receipt ol' the Peg, that their Alma lvlater was very much alive. This year Vvinnic Topal served as editor. Ramona Oliver, assistant editor, lrmgard Rosenzweig, lousiness manager: and upon his return from the Army George Waggoner was sports editor. it is felt at this time that commendations are in order lor all stall?-members of the Peg through-out the war. Their services have been appreciated lay all who henelited from them. WOMEN 'S COUNCIL The VVomen's Council, the governing body of the dormitory residents. was still another ol those Eurelca faithl'ul's that continued to function during the war. Made up of two representatives from each of the sororities and the independent women, the council, under its own constitution intlicts penalties on those residing in the dormitories who fail to comply with it's rules and regulations. Besides enforcing dormitory rules, the council has. for the past three years, sponsored "Heart Sister VVeelc" in the absence of the Y. VV. C. A. Heading the council this year were Bernadine Bateman, president: Dorothy Eisele. vice-president: Elise McCormick. secretary-treasurer, with Mrs. Hunt and Miss Lazelle as advisors. 56 . - - : ' - '-1 r ' I ' A L A - A ' 37 e it ing..

The catch to this setting point consists in its mean- ing the ieast in money hut most in ambition, since those who participate in this ieiiowship are requireci to he at the 'Christian Church at 7 A. Nt. sharp each Wed- nesctay morning. Attencience varies therefore, with the weather, from fifteen to thirty-tive. This unique group has no membership, hutt weicomes ati hungry anci energetic souis who wiii arrive at that hour. A hreaiciast. which has consistted at various times oi anything from pancaices anci sausage to tried potatoes and eggs, is prepared hy an even ioraver committee. which must arrive at six o'cioctc. The coffee, an unprecectentect variety. is preparect hy Rev. Donaici Salmon. who sponsors the group. Each attencient of the break- tlasts is a member of the icitchen committee al ieast twice during the year. After tatecomers have been greeted' iooct consumed. and songs anci fun en- joyed at the tahie. the group gathers tor a hrief worship service, which is ted hy two of the students. The ieiiowship often weicomes an out-of-town guesit or an in- teresting Eureica person as its speaker, tout the program is sometimes carried out entirety hy the students. The main purpose oi' this group is Christian ieiiowship. hut it acts as a chan- net through which religious projects from outside the campus may reach interested students anci as an instrument through which stucients may support such activity. 41 --v...,,,-.

Often one's first: impression is that Eureka is a quiet, reserved community, having little to offer along entertainment line. For the most part that first impression is the cor- rect one. tt is difficult for any student to accept this situation and consequently he is destined ,to create his ownvmanner of spending leisure time. Though our stu- dents are not likely to' accept these circumstances without some xtomment of dis- approval. the situation is ideal from the ,Colleges viewpoint in that it lceeps the campus as the central place of interest and activity. and too. most college students are not llushedwith 'greenhaclcsf Also, it forces our students to use their initiative which may he good or load. X Before I give you an account ol our activities on campus I should mention the downtown interests which attract many of our students. For that new Ameri- can custom. va colce date. we usually go to lVtilce's Sweet Shop or to Dawson's Drug store. Then if we really want to dosomething special we go Ito the Bowling Alley or to the Vvoodford Theater. Never-the-less most of us are content to turn our interests toward College ac- tivities, and ,we do find enjoyment in. them. This is how the average student might spend his leisure time. , On Sunday ,we can sleep late, lout not' ftoo late, laecause church starts at 10:40. XKVC have dinner at 12:30, then we may' read the tunnies, study, see a fmovie. and often there are special functions such as teas or recitals. Nlonday we have to re- adapt ourselves to the classroom routine, and sometimes that is quite difficult. es- pecially if we spent the weelcend at home. Nlonday night indicates the time for gavels to clamor calling fraternity and sorority meetings to order. Oliten these as- semblies are planning social and traditional events which lteep many of us lousy. Tuesday night we may have play practice. Pi .Kappa Delta or Alpha Epsilon Sig- ma meetings. Wednesday or Thursday nights are dress-nights or special guest night for dinner. Oliten recitals are scheduled on these nights. Then on the weelc- ends a variety of recreation and entertainment may he planned. Both Friday and Saturday evenings are ideal times for fraternity and.sorority informal house dances and parties. for haslcetlaatt and loothall games, for plays and other all-school func- tions. You can see that we do lceep lousy throughout each school weelc. And though at lirst our campus may seem quiet - it does seem to grow and grow in our hearts until it is as alive and exciting as only we have made it through the maintenance of Eurelca's traditions. -16 47 FRESHMAN WALK Traditionally the Frosh awaited the night ol Freshman VVall4. The Almighty Seniors had announc- ed several hints-1 that Freshman Vvallc would he at night: that Freshmen would not have to wall: over 50 miles: and would he excused lrom class the next clay. if the next clay is Nlonclay: that Freshman Vvallc is never on Sunday night tcleverll: and that all Fresh- men would lne called for and need not tear laeing lett laehind.

Rumors spread thiclc and last-- "This is the nightlu But 'the nigllt happened almost seven nights a weeli. Then one bright moonlit night. the night of October 9. at 12:15, that is: when lay this time the Frosh had given up hope, put on their pajamas and were last asleep: the old firelaell, with the help of some strong upperclassmen, announced Freshman Walkl As 'the luright rays ot sun gleamed over Eurelca Courthouse spire the last few freshmen traclced their ways laaclc alter a night they will never forget.

Ni. on Octotoer 17. the whistte on the heating ptant toict everyone in no uncertain terms that the eventful day had come. The wondering freshmen and the att-too-intetiigent sopho- mores and juniors rushed to the chapei where the seniors were ringing the oict coitege heii and smiiing icnowingty at the expect- ant faces. Forty-five minutes iater the costumed students gathered again at tthe chapet and started the snatce dance to town. Fresh- man giris dressed as 'Lit Atmefs and the boys as Daisy iVtae's. Sophomores dressed as Wait N Disney characters and the Jun- iors as-supermen for womentt. After paying their respect to 1 the mighty seniors before the eyes ot ati who happened to find themseives "uptown" at that L particutar time, the under ctass- men hiiced out to Laice Eureka. Here the sophomores and juniors succeeded in put- ting the freshmen into the pond two successive times to be adjudged the victors in the annuai tug-o-war contest. After eating, everyone gathered at .tViiice's for coices and then went to the Woodford Theatre where each ciass presented a stunt and enjoyed a tree movie. Open house at Ntagdaiene Haii atater dinner compieted the day, with dancing un- ut ten. The Sophomore ciass won the prize for the best costumes with "tVtagdaiene Haii Dariingsu tatcing honors as Snow Vvhite and the Seven Dwarfs and the wiciced Oict Witch. Perfect weather made the weit-pianned day a huge success. 40 THE JUNIOR - SENIOR PROM usolit lights, sweet music. and a pretty girl to dance with"- briefly that describes the Junior-Senior Prom, to which all stu- dents were invited. Busy Juniors. with boxes ol crepe paper and ideas, transform- ed Pritchard Gym into a dance floor and installed Larry Vveber and his orchestra to furnish the music. A warm spring evening aided in matting the event. which began the festivities ol graduation weekend, an ideal farewell lor the Senior Class. THE HEART SISTER DANCE The very versatile Lida's Wood dining room was again the scene ol the Heart Sister Dance. the climax of a weelc ol' mystery and excitement. ' Annually, Heart Sister Week. and its finale--the Heart Sis- ter Dance- is sponsored by the Y. VV. C. A.. but since the war the sponsorship ol this event has passed over to the VVomen's Council. One ol' the earliest of the all school dances. a most enjoyable evening was spent by the girls and their dates in the attractively decorated dining room, dancing to the music of such popular bands as Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Carmen Cavellaro. and others-all on recordings, of course. INTER-FRAT PLEDGE DANCE Perhaps one of the outstanding and most successful social functions ol the year was the Inter-fraternity Pledge Dance. Com- mittees from each fraternity combined their plans and efforts for the party which was held at Ithe Lambda Chi .House The pledge class from each organization was given a room to decorate using schemes of their own choosing. Dancing and refreshments pro- vided .a swell evenings entertainment for ,more than sixty couples. This panty proved to be more than just a. social function. It was an informal 'get-acquainted' party and it was a land'marlc in encouraging inter-fraternal relations yon our Campus. Each organ- ization contributed generously in worlc and cooperative spirit to malce the paifty a most successful one. 50 51 THE GREEKS Perhaps the sections of our campus which are most responsi- hle for the life. excitement. social activities. and traditions are the Greek organizations. The spring of 1943 hrought the close of the three fraternities on campus, and among other things, stymied the social activities of our sororities. The fraternal spirit survived the war in fine shape. even showing great improvement in respect to inter-fraternity feelings. Very evident in this year's reorganization was the hroad-minded scope upon which' fraternities and sororities worlced. The general attitude has far surpassed previous levels. The development of these new attitudes has undoubtedly' been hrought about hy the difficult circumstances of the past four years. and the realization hy every student that narrow-mindedness and selfishness can have no part in our college today. Tau Kappa Epsilon was the first fraternity to re-organize on campus last October. Psi Alpha Lamhda re-organized in Decem- her though they were laclcing a house. Lambda Chi Alpha return- ed to campus in late March. Our sororities, Delta Zeta. Delta Delta Pi, and Phi Omega. had little to do in the way of re-organization: hut the opportunity had re-appeared which made possible a full schedule of social activity. We Greelcs are proud of the role which we play in campus activities. The tradition. the competitive spirit and the social func- tions have hecome a part of our life. I '32 THEY LIVE HERE Tau Kappa Epsilon House Lmnlmda Chi Alpha House Lidzfs Wood Nlagclulene Hall 37 DELTA ZETA SORORITY September found Pi Chapter ol Delta Zeta lost in a maze ol' packing boxes and rush parties. taking time out only to greet old friends back on campus once more. Alter welcoming Nelle Baxter, Pearl Havlik. lxflarian Hild. lla Morey and Barbara Schmidt into our group. we started into another year's work under the leadership of Rosemary Padula. The end ol' the war brought an increased en- rollment to Eureka College and an increased hum of activities to Delta Zeta. Hik- ing out to back campus armed with weiners and weiner sticks, we helped the Tekes celebrate the re-opening of their fraternity house. Soon alter. we pledged Betty .lane Paxton, a newcomer to Lida's Wood. The highlight of the winter months came with the Delta Zeta winter lormal. During the evening spent in dancing under brilliant blue and white decorations. lxflarian Hild was crowned queen of the Snowball Formal. This formal was the first in several years due to the war, and was a pleasant opening for the holiday season. ln January we trudged back alter Christmas vacation loaded down with presents to find that Kathie Harding was back again, having transferred from Illinois College. At the opening of the third term. we were happy to greet Amelia Mancuso, newly discharged from the WAC, and Bess Fifield who had been with us several years before. At our birthday dinner on February 18, Betty Jane Paxton was awarded the Ideal Pledge ring. Nelle Baxter was given a bracelet for scholarship, and Natalie Winslow was given the ldeal Active ring. Bertha Laws donated a ring to be worn by the president during her term of office. During March and April our chapter room was re-decorated and papered and new furniture was purchased. At our annual election in April Kathie Hard- ing was elected president for next year. Our Spring Formal was the last major social event of the year. With appro- priate setting at the Lakewood Country Club, the members and guests danced to the music of Buzz Lawyer's orchestra after the banquet. The decorations followed the spring theme and formed a lively background for the dance. The year ended with a series of rush parties and picnics and last minute packing. VVe were all sorry to leave. but we're looking forward to another suc- cessful year in Delta Zeta. 'ii MEMBERS DELTA ZETA OFFICERS 1945-1946 1946-1947 Rosemary paciuia ..-- -i-- Presicient ........

Our formal pledge banquet honored live new girls at the Presbyterian Church in September. Two other girls pledged in January and April. The actives enjoyed Ladies' Day at the Ball Parlc in December. It was en' tertainment by the pledges at our Christmas Party. The formal initiation dinner-dance in February was the first event of its lcind since before the war. Les Gerber and his orchestra furnished music at Lida's Wood. Our annual Mother's Tea in March was attended by every Delta Pi mother. Dorm life with them around was especially stimulating. The autstanding social event of the year was our spring formal dinner-dance at the Jefferson Hotel in Peoria. Thanks to the return of ex-servicemen. the affair was a huge success. About sixty memhers and guests attended and enjoyed the danceable music and unique floor show of Herman Hampy and his orchestra. On lVlay I9 we celebrated our 36th birthday with the annual dinner at Lida's Wood. Gther news and events of the year included sponsorship of an all-school dance, serenades, purchasing of new furniture for our corridor, and a rush week- end long to begremembered. Our sports team displayed 'their abilities in college intramuarl by winning tournaments in basketball, volleyball and baseball. Everyone is proud and happy that Eurelca College is steadily gaining in qual- ity and quanity. Our sincere wish is that the improvements will continue until Eureka stands in even more hearts as it does in ours, "faithful, tried, and true." 'SH DELTA DELTA PI 1945-1946 Betty Risser ............

Although this has been a short school year for most of us. the excitement and subsequent events of our re-activation has made it a memorable and busy one. Under the direction of Fraters Arnold Crawley and Dick Topal our frater' nity house became the first to reactivate on campus when in October the house was re-opened and three men were pledged. Vvith the pledging of more men and the return ol several prewar actives and pledges our number quiclcly grew to thirty men by last term. lt was not long before our neighbors became aware of our sing- ing, baseball. football. radio and all the rest of the joys that come with a fraternity. We were most fortunate in having lVlrs. Shannon, the mother of Frater Lloyd Shainon, talce charge ol our lcitchen for us and it was not long before we earned our reputation for having the finest dinners on campus. To those of us who were here before the war it was a great treat to once again listen to Josseclc recite "Clar- issa the Flea" and "Mrs, Pettibonen although there was no laclc of table conver- sation with Collier and Van Petten arguing about who was the champ golfer, or npottsyn Elliott and Kenny Brasslield trying to see who could eat the most. Reviving other customs, we had content dinners for the three sororities, our Mothers on lVlother's Day and for our Chapter advisors. Our Spring Formel was held at the illinois Hotel in Bloomington and turned out to be a highly successful affair. Credit went to the committee chairmen Fraters: Elliott. Hagan, Tefertillar. E Our athletic section was well represented by basketball lettermen, Bob Cave. Arnold Crawley, Bill Morrow, Bob Nelson and Vvarren Collier. Arnold Crawley was the manager of the basketball team. Our baseball lettermen were Leslie Rich- ards, Bill Morrow. Bob Nelson, Warren Collier, Wally Rogner and Steve Kli- mowslci. in intramurals we won the basketball and baseball. Later Warren Collier won the golfing match. in the school elections Jim Vvilliams carried the votes for editorship of the next year's Prism and Chuclc lxflather was elected business manager of the Pegasus. The biggest news of all. however, was when Gregory Josseclc, pledge for five years, was finally initiated. Probably the most outstanding of our events of the past year was the presenta- tion of a three-act play entitled "Breezy Nloneyf' This was something that the fraternity had never done before but it proved to be a great success. Frater Lyle Hagan selected the cast and directed the play and judging from the way it went over, did a perfect job. Yes, it has been an eventful and successful year for Iota. but next year pro- mises to be even a greater and better year - and all of the "Bold Bad Telcesu are eager to greet it. 00 Crysoplmylos TAU KAPPA EPSILON Officers lor 1946-47 Prytanis ..... ........................

The year was started off with three rush parties, which turned out to be grealt successes, thanks to our alums and patronesses. Five new girls were pledged, and a banquet was given in the honor. We then loolced forward to the day when they would he strutting the gold and pearls, hut loefore all this happened came that grand and glorious "Heli Week." A wonderful year was had lay the Phi O's for it was packed full of fun and laughter for each and every member. When those October nights rolled around with that gorgeous harvest moon as iuli as it possibly could he. out came the "ole" hay-raclc filled with gals and guys, who had a wonderful time. Then there were house-dances at the loeginning of the year. along with spreads celebrating engagements, birthdays, and even marriages, of which there were three. We had the honor of giving two formals this year. First, the Christmas For- mal. held at Lida's Vvood. For the first time since the war. we celebrated mid- winter with our annual Sweetheart Formal. it was really a gala affair and every- body tallied aloout it for days afterwards. The next hig event was the initiating of our new memhers and the pledging of another. Ohl what excitement-'topped off with the birthday dinner and calce. Niay First rolled around and the Phi O's went "posy'piclcing" for that tradi- tional Serenade Nitqe. The hoys hanging from the fraternilty house windows made it seem iilce old times. Our mothers came to visit us the first weeicend and we all got acquainted over the tea cups. Now that summer is creeping up on us, and it is time to leave school, we look ioaclc upon our happyj days we've had with each other sharing our love and friend- ship and all the good times, hut we also ioolc forward to the years to come, when there will he higger and loetter ones. 62 PHI OMEGA 1945- I946 OFFICERS 1946- 1947 Bernadine Batemen ......

Three years ago the chapter was storing away its furniture and closing the house as the last of its men went off to war. Last November four of the actives returned to school and began the joh of reactivation. We have gone 'through the difficult process of re-organizing and setting in motion machinery though a hit rusty. Social events this year have been scarce. We held our Rouge's Brawl at the Wood in March and danced in a maze of crepe paper streamers, hut due to present dif- ficulties we put away our plans for a Spring Formal until next year. Meanwhile, we have brought our number of actives and pledges from four to twenty-two. Though it was a short year for us we managed to participate in several of the extra-curricular activities. ,Many of the men won letters in varsity basketball and hasehaii, and we did weii in intramurais. Others were elected to Alpha Epsilon Sigma and Pi Kappa Delta. Everyone helped to put our scholastic average up in the higher brackets. Next year some of our former actives have promised to come hack, and with the organization running smoothly again we are looking forward to a big year ,for Psi Alpha Lambda. 6-1 'PSI ALPHA LAMBDA- President ........

'LOOKING AHEAD ug ---v-. .... .-P V EI 'H -Q11 ' THE PROPOSED DORMITORY Every person connected with our Alma Mater is welt aware that we must took into and plan for the future. One of the prime reasons is insufficient housing. To meet this prohiem our college administrators and hoard of trustees have proposed to build a dor- mitory for men. The artists sketch shows one unit of the dormi- tory which wiil he erected as soon as funds are provided. Each unit will provide housing for thirty men, and will have a suite for a resident counseior. On Tuesday. March 5. Dr. Dickinson, in speaking to the stu- dent hody, outlined a five-point program for remodeling campus buildings. This announcement was the result of an authorization, hy the hoard of trustees to launch a three-year program to meet the most important needs of the college. The five-points are: QU A men's dormitory will he huiit. Qi Better housing for the coi- tege iihrary. The first floor of Burgess Hail will provide this space. UD Prichard Gymnasium will he remodeled. ffl, Better housing for the chapel will he provided. 15, Additional classrooms for the present educational plan will also receive attention. Aside from material things, we are looking ahead in another respect. In declaring policy Dr. Dickinson said,"that Eureka Coi- ie'ge's liberal arts program will he founded upon the 'pursuit of truthf That it would he free from creed and denominational view- points, and said that we must have a world-wide viewpoint at Eu- reka.
