THE BRAIN TRUST
Along with the rise in enrollment came six additional faculty members to
extend fthe curriculum and lceep this new generation out ol' mischief.
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. Wiggins continues to entertain his humanities
class with diagrams of Hell ala Dante tplenty of food lor thought in that coursel.
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.

FIRST POST - WAR GRADUATES
Eureica's iirst post-war graduation class has distinguished itself in several
ways. 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-
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.

THE OLD GANG'S BACK
This is strictly hearsay, but I understand thatt lite was pretty dull around
:Eureka when the man-power was so low. 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.

S. Evelyn and Jim. .
One phase of our life "Neath the Elms" which contributes
immensely to our college training is found in student participation
in activities. 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-
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.
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.

Eurelca wouldn't he normal if there wasn't a student governing body. 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.

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.

STUDENT CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP
Miihe higgesl hreaiiiasl in town for the ieastn is the ciaim of the Stucient
Christian Feiiowship Group. 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.

LIFE AT EUREKA
No doubt you would like to lcnow what we do when we are not in the class-
room. or studying, or lausying ourselves with some extra-curricular activity. 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-
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.

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.
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-

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
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.

TAU KAPPA EPSILON FRATERNITY
The close of this school year once again finds the 'Telcesn operating in lull
swing. 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.

PSI ALPHA LAMBDA I-'RATERNITY
The coming of another spring finds Psi Alpha Lambda again in operation.
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.

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. And uthat the future progress and success of Eureka College
is dependent upon the faith, co-operation and work of everyone
