The 1946-47 school year has been the first normal year for Eureka
College following the war. It has been an interesting year for both the: new
students and those who returned after the war's interlude in their edu-
cation. The new student during the year was initiated into the Eureka
Tradition and the old student once again participated in the Grind, Freshl-
man Walk, Homecoming and the other lighter phases of college life.
It has been a pleasure for those of us who Worked together on the
1947 Prism to prepare a record in pictures and writing of the year's ac-
tivities. The production of a successful yearbook goes beyond the list of
the staff-it depends upon the co-operation of the whole student body.
The editors wish to thank all who gave a helping hand. In particular we
are indebted to Bob Bahr and Clarence Fauber, who gave us transportation
when it was needed, and to John Colburn of Eureka who helped us obtain
scarce photographic materials for pictures, and to President Dickinson,
who gave us advice and help in shaping this book together.

Constructed in 1857, the Administration Building is the oldest build-
ing on the campus, During the years many Changes have been made in
the arrangement of its interior. The latest program called for the re-
moval of the library to Burgess Hall and converting the former library
quarters into classrooms.
Probably the most familiar symbol of Eureka College to all of us is
the historic college bell. The ring of its voice is heard many times during
the school year, for whenever a game is won or a special event such as
Flunk Day is to be announced, laughing students never hesitate to pro-
claim the news With its loud clanging.

A busy year ended for the
Senior Class of 1947 when We
graduated in June.
Early in the fall, Freshman
Walk and Flunk Day had to be
planned and carried out While
the beautiful fall weather pro-
vided nice nights and Warm, sun-
Winter brought a lull to Se-
nior Class activities, but the
members of the class found
many activities to engage in and
before We knew it, it was spring
and time to hide the fruit cake,
order graduation announcements
and carry out the many other
items that came up.
Late in May, We decided to
take a rest from our studies and
Work, so Senior Skip Day took
us to Lake Bloomington for a
picnic and a day of relaxation.
We were guests of honor at
the Junior-Senior Banquet and
Prom. Ourifinal meeting as a
class before graduation evening
occurred at 'the Senior Break-
fast and Alumni Dinner.
Now, as we enter the ranks of
alumni of Eureka College, We
breath a sigh of relief and also
a sigh of regret, that our busy,
but happy, college days are over.

The Class of 1948 will have the honor of being the centennial class
and, although we may not be large, we have many accomplishments to
our credit. Near the beginning of the year we chose Sue Atkins for our
president, Jack Swanson as our vice president, and Rue Cofoid and Carolyn
Vissering as secretary and treasurer.
The first notable item of' achievement was the finding of the Seniors'
fruit cake and enjoying the ice cream and coffee they had to furnish.
We gave the Seniors a rousing send-off with a banquet and a "Diamond

For the past year, we have done our best to leave an impression of
ourselves around Eureka College Campus despite the fact that we have
been very quiet about it.
The members of our class plunged into campus activity with a will and,
We might add, a ring and a vow, for our class boasts many married stu-
dents and engaged couples.
Being the mad and merry group we are, we are looking forward to
working together on the many activities that will claim our time in the
next two years of college life.

Since We are the largest class in the college, it is almost impossible
to find a campus activity that some of us haven't been in-athletics,
forensics, dramatics, Greek organizations, and many others.
After one year at Eureka We feel that We can capably help carry on
campus traditions and fun, and leave college with the distinction of per-
haps being the largest class ever to graduate from Eureka College.

Much of the value of college
is to be found in activities out-
side as well as inside the class-
room. Students at Eureka are
particularly fortunate in both a
rich tradition and a closely knit,
Well-acquainted group to carry
From the beginning rush off
Freshman Week, until the close
of the ivy ceremony at gradua-
tion, it has been a busy and
fruitful year for the students
and their many organizations.
The Grind, Freshman Walk,
Flunk Day, Homecoming, Win-
ter Formals, the Heart Sister
Dance, Spring Formals, and the
Junior-Senior Prom were all
highly successful activities of
the past year.
Looking to the one World of
today, a drive for aid of foreign
students was sponsored by the
World Student Service Fund and
went over the top both in dona-
tions and in the most successful
all-school party of the year.
The following pages are a,
View of some of our traditions,
activities, and organizations-
a very important part of the
campus 'neath the elms.
TI-IE GRIND AND FRESI-IMAN WALK
About a week after school started, President Dickinson let us know that we were
to participate in one of the oldest customs of the campus. The Grind, which is
the Eureka way of becoming acquainted with new students and faculty members,
was held on Saturday night, September 21, in the gym. After the grind, you
know what the politician's arm feels like after a big campaign, and really feel
that you have been well introduced to your fellow classmates.
The whole affair was followed by a dance with music by recordings. This was
the first of many gay parties sponsored by various campus groups-certainly a
fitting beginning for the new school year.
The night of October 2, a docile freshman class co-operated with the mighty
seniors in order to remove a little of the green so common to freshmen.
The idea was simply to give the new collegiates a bit of a hard time. Very
definitely they paid homage to the seniors during the course of the evening, and
entertained them with various stunts. This was the night that Angie showed
her ability as a football player. Carlos Mendez almost knocked himself out cheer-
leading, and more than one young man went through the motions of pinning
diapers on officially helpless females.
As each group finished their stunt, they were taken to waiting cars, given their
ride O-U-T, and told to find their way back when and if they could.
Arriving back in Eureka sometime in the wee hours, most-freshmen felt thor-
FLUNK DAY Sl-IENANIGANS
The old tradition of Flunk Day is dear to the hearts of the Eureka College
students, although some visitor to Ye Olde College might accuse us of madness.
The Seniors set THE day-October 9 this year- all unknown to the poor under-
classmen. Heinie blew the whistle at the steam plant and we all gathered at the chapel.
Remember? The freshman boys dressed as little girls, the freshman girls dressed
as little boys, sophomore boys as Daisy Mae's and girls as Li'l Abner's, and the
juniors dressed as babies.
Transformed students walked to town or became part of a snake dance led by
"Miss" Slagle. Around the stoplight with much supposed dignity, the lordly Seniors
fwho incidentally were privileged to ride up town in carsj required "Allahs" from the
Before our walk to Flunk Hill, we stopped to sing favorite college songs at the
When we had all arrived, there was the traditional tug-o-war across Walnut
Creek. The Sophomores got dunked, not once but twice.
Mrs. Deiker and a few seniors prepared the delicious bar-b-ques, baked beans,
cookies and apples served at our picnic luncheon.
Following some more horseplay and general sociability, we enjoyed a free movie
and saw slides of last year's Flunk Day at the Woodford Theatre.
There was a dance that night at the gym. Outside, falling comets were visible,
but each swain was primarily interested in the sweet young thing in his arms.
By ten, the time of parting had come--at Lida's Wood and Magdalene Hall. Here
' the technique is still the same. If you don't know about it, drop over to the Wood or
Hall about ten some night and see it-very educational. The underclassmen figured
they'd had a big day and the seniors were proud of the successful day they had planned.

After considerable planning by the Student Council and arrangement
of final details, November 8 Was announced as the date for the Eureka
College Homecoming of 1946.
The first all-school activity was started by a fine stunt night at the
chapel. Evidently the Tekes' pseudo quiet evening really stole the show,
but the Delta Pi's dramatization of how "We Girls Play Football" was also
terrific. All stunts were especially good this year.
Homecoming Queen Shirley Rankin was crowned by Dr. Charnock and
presented with flowers. The Queen and her Attendants, Dorothy Klas-
sovity and Mary Jean Mailloux, were selected by the football team.
A big bonfire back campus was the scene of much cheering and singing
by Eureka students following the stunts.
Homecoming decorations, the result of much hard work, were ready
for the judges by Friday, November 8. First prizes went to Phi Omega
Sorority and Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity.
In our Homecoming football game the Red Devils clashed with Prin-
cipia Saturday, November 9, emerging victorious by a 13-6 score.
At 7:00 o'clock in the high school auditorium, the three-act play, f'The
Show Off", starring Gregory Josseck, Wanda Sheely and Winifred Topal,
was presented to the Homecoming audience.
Final tallies at the all-school dance following the play proved the Delta
Zeta Sorority and the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity the winners of the
1946 Homecoming Trophies.

In the mammoth Pumpkin Festival parade on September 28, six floats
from Eureka College and its organizations showed the ingenuity of their
makers and the interest of the faculty and student body in this great
Dr. Dickinson drove the car that pulled the Eureka College float. The
lamp of knowledge burned brightly with the names of various subjects in-
scribed around it. The float was "ornamented" with college students.
Anyone hoping to see any feminine beauty in the Teke float was
rather severely disappointed 5 however, this defect was more than made up
by feminized males including Greg Josseck, Dick Topal, Bob Bada, Bob
Nelson, and George Whitcomb.
The Delta Pi Sorority really did themselves up proud for the Festival.
Their float was a Delta Pumpkin Pie which looked highly edible-especially
with Eleanor Schumacher in the middle.
It was the Lambda Chi fraternity that gave us the idea that they
were trying to find the secret of making pumpkin-all to no avail. It was
plain to see that by the efforts of bewhiskered Foley, Slagle, McMahan,
Edwards and Fee that they were able to make synthetic nylon, and tires,
and were able to split atoms, but were unable to make pumpkins.
Our friends, the Phi Omegas, came through with "Maggie Hall" as the
topic for their float. Dot Klassovity was chained to a miniature Magdalene
Hall while Gladys fHousemotherJ Regnier kept guard with keys, and a
clock with hands pointing to 10 p. m. I
Finally Delta Zeta sorority showered the public with ea float of artistic
beauty in the theme of an immense pumpkin blossom and feminine beauty
in the forms of B. J. Paxton, Barbara Schmidt, Carol Land, and Nelle
TI-IE JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM
L i . Ml
The closing social activity of the year was the Junior-Senior Banquet and Dance held
the night of May 30, featuring the "Diamond Horseshoe" and Herman Harnpy's orchestra
and organ. Under the capable leadership of the junior class officers, Jack Swanson, Rue
Cofoid, and Carolyn Vissering, this farewell party for the seniors served as a fitting
close to a successful social year.

The Student Council of Eureka College, composed of two members of
each fraternal group, two persons from the independent groups, one faculty
member, and the President of the College, formed the nucleus of all the
committees for all-school activities. From this group the committee heads

The group meets each Wednes-
day morning at 7 a. m. at the
Christian Church. Breakfast is
served by a committee of four.
Following breakfast the group
gathers for a worship service and
a talk given by a guest speaker
or a student. The closing moments
are traditionally spent in medita-
tion led by Donald Salmon, min-
ister of the church, as the group
gathers in a friendship circle.
This year as a special project
the Fellowship paid for a package
of food which was sent to a needy
family in Europe.
Officers are chosen each term.

RELIGION MAJOR FELLOWSHIP
Last year, under the leadership of Dr. Moore, the Religion Major
Fellowship was established for the purpose of meeting to discuss prac-
tical problems of the ministry. This year the Fellowship was strengthened
When Mr. Harold Wiltz came to the faculty at Eureka to serve in the de-
partment of religion. The membership of the Fellowship has increased
considerably this year, as more students who plan to enter the Christian
ministry or other phases of the work of the church have enrolled in the
college. With the increase in membership has come a parallel increase in
activity and projects.
Near the first of the year we sponsored an all-campus clothing drive
for needy families in Europe. We also sponsor 15-minute devotional serv-
ices held each Monday and Friday morning before classes. The leaders
for these services are chosen from the entire student body and all are
welcome to attend.
We meet each Tuesday evening for our regular meeting. After a brief
worship service and our business meeting we discuss some problem relative
to the work of the church. Often we welcome out-of-town guests to speak
to us. Although these meetings are primarily for instructional purposes,
we do have our lighter moments of fun. On May 20 we met to help Dr. and
Mrs. Moore celebrate their new home and spent an evening playing games
and eating ice cream with them.
Many of this group participate in the gospel team programs, going to
different churches in the state where they conduct services under the
leadership of Mr. Wiltz. About twenty of the men of this group are serving
as student pastors in various churches of the state.
The officers of the Fellowship are: Scott Simer, chairman, Helen
Gilbert, vice chairman, Genevieve Seeley, secretary. Evert Millard served
as program chairman for the Tuesday evening meetings, Bonnie Thornton
as chairman of the refreshment committee, and Enos Nelson as chairman
of the devotional committee.

Intercollegiate sports got
back in full swing at Eureka
this season. The school's first
football team since 1942 Went
undefeated against Illinois
competition, both their losses
coming at the hands of Mis-
souri foes. In basketball Eu-
reka boasted one of the state's
better teams, Winning 18
games and grabbing the Pio-
neer Conference's first cham-
pionship. After a slow start,
our baseball team too, hit
high gear and won 5 of their
last 7 games.
So all in all, it Was a pretty
successful year for Coach
Barrow and his athletes.
Many of the stars on this
year's teams are underclass-
men and the school is looking
forward to seeing them back
again next year.
Eureka this year joined
with Shurtleif, McKendree,
and Quincy Colleges in form-
ing the Pioneer Athletic Con-
ference. Professor Griif La-
throp was elected the first
president of the conference.
WON 2 - LOST 2 - T'IED 2
Eureka engaged in intercollegiate football for the first time since
1942 and came through with a speedy eleven that gave a good account of
itself every time out. A small squad gave Coach Barrow little chance to
give his regulars much relief during a game and as a result most of the
players saw heavy duty from beginning to end. Injuries to Bob Houser
and Roger Harris during the season hampered the Red Devils considerably.
With ten of the lettermen freshmen and sophomores, hopes are high for a
good season again next year. Kalmar Schneider. senior end from Eureka,
was elected honorary captain of the 1946 squad. Lyle Sutton, freshman
end from El Paso, led the Eureka scoring with three touchdowns and five
conversions for twenty-three points. Sutton missed only one placement in

Eureka 20-Aurora 6 1H0meJ. The Red Devils got the season off to
a successful start by downing the Aurora College eleven under the lights
at the high school iield. Bob Houser carried the pigskin over for the first
Eureka score and Lyle Sutton converted the extra point from placement.
Aurora came back for a touchdown but Bob McCarthy threw a pass to
Sutton in the end zone and Sutton teamed up again on a successful pass in
the second half after Herb Hasenyager had put the Spartans in the hole
with a long punt that rolled out on the Aurora 8-yard line, to give the Red
,Devils their final score.
Eureka 7-Carthage 7 CAwayJ. Though they dominated play through-
out, the Red Devils weakened in the final minutes to permit Carthage to
score and gain a tie. Though they were inside the Carthage 20-yard line
consistently, Eureka could push across a touchdown only once. Eight plays
after the opening kickoff Houser raced around end for the Eureka TD and
Sutton converted. Before the quarter ended the Red Devils were back in
scoring territory but a fumble cost them another tally., The second half was
much the same story. A long Carthage pass clicked and the extra point
tied the score. Eureka brought the kickoff back strong and were on the
Carthage 19-yard line when time ran out.
Culver-Stockton 14-Eureka 6 CHomeJ. Culver's ace halfback, Milt
Moore, proved too elusive for the Red Devils, scoring both the Missouri
school's touchdowns, the second on a 40-yard punt return. Fred Millard
shot a bullet pass to Hasenyager for the only Eureka tally in the first half.
The Red Devils threatened throughout the last half but the Culver line
held when Eureka got near pay dirt.
Kirksville 13-Eureka 0 fAwayJ. For the second straight week, Eu-
reka met a Missouri .foe and the North Eastern Teachers squad proved
themselves the toughest team on the Red Devils' schedule. Despite the
magnificent play of the outweighed Eureka line, the Red Devils could not
push across a score and suffered their only shutout of the season. The
Kirksville crew had too much reserve strength for the Maroon and Gold.
The Eureka line played a hard game with Jerry Short being outstanding.
Eureka 7-ShurtleE 7 CAwayJ. The Eureka attack again started out
in high gear, then bogged down and stalled completely. The Red Devils
scored early with Sutton taking a pass for a six pointer and making his
placement good. Shurtleff came back to tie things up and the two evenly
matched squads battled to a standstill the rest of the way.
Eureka 7-Principia 6 CHOmecomingj. The Red Devils made Eureka's
first post-war homecoming a tremendous success by snatching a thrilling
one point decision from Principia. Bob McCarthy intercepted a Principia
pass in the final period and ran it back sixty yards to the visitors' twelve-
yard line. Three plays later Millard was over and Sutton kicked the all-
important extra point. Principia took the kickoff and marched down the
field and over the Eureka goal in eight plays. On the conversion attempt
the Red Devil line opened up a big hole and Dick Kilpatrick scooted through
to block the kick 3 a Principia back picked up the loose ball and was headed
goalward when George Waggoner brought him down. Eureka received and

basketball in the Quincy armory. The Red
Devils dominated play from the opening
whistle till the final gun. Holding a 34 to 24
halftime margin, the Red Devils eased up until
the Hawks pulled within 4 points. Eureka
baskets quickly quenched the uprising and the
Red Devils walked off the court with the title.
Eureka 52, Chicago Teachers 51 CHomeJ. The

Just about everything
that could happen to
plague a ball team hap-
pened to the Red Devils
this season. Ed Thom-
men, only southpaw hurl-
er on the squad, suffered
a skull fracture in the
second game of the year
in a freak accident, when
1 he was felled by a
thrown ball and was lost
5 . - for the season. Lyle Sut-
ton, righthanded pitcher
and first baseman, suf-
fered injuries in an auto
accident and was ham-
pered all season by its
effects. These injuries
plus unusually rainy
weather held up the pro-
gress of the Eureka
crew. Yet, despite these
misfortunes, the Red
Devils rallied after losing
their first four games to
win 5 out of the last 7
contests. Fred Millard,
fiery catcher from East
Peoria, was elected hon-
orary captain by his
teammates at the end of
the season. Dick Broers
led the hitters with a
.385 average followed by
Millard with .378. Bob
Houser batted .351 and Bud Emmert .306. Bob Specht turned in an out-
standing pitching performance, winning four games against only one loss.
The following men were nominated by Coach Barrow for letters: Lyle
Sutton, Bob Houser, Bob Woodin, Dick Broers, Bob Nelson, Bill Spencer,
Bud Emmert, Herb Hasenyager, Leo Traister, Bob McCarthy, Fred Millard,
Bob Specht, Ed Thommen, and Don Silk.
Normal 14-Eureka 3. The seasoned Normal nine proved too tough
for the Red Devils in their 1947 debut, smashing out 14 hits at the expense
of 3 Eureka hurlers. Bud Emmert and Dick Broers each made two hits for
the Red Devil cause. -
r g f
Monmouth 7-Eureka 2. Ed Thommen, Eureka's southpaw hurler,
was hit on the skull by a thrown ball in the second inning of this game
and carried unconscious from the field. The shaky Red Devils gave up six
runs in the inning after Thommen left. Lyle Sutton held the Monmouth
crew runless the last live innings but that unfortunate second settled the
issue. Emmert went 3 for 4 to pace the Eureka attack.
Concordia 7-Eureka 3. Costly fielding errors brought the Red Devils
downfall in this one. Bob Woodin garnered 2 hits in three attempts to lead
the Eureka hitters.
Quincy 4-Eureka 3. The Hawks scored three times in the first inning
and added one in the second to nose out the Red Devils by one run. After
a wobbly start Don Silk settled down to hurl fine ball for Eureka. Bill
ipelnger had three hits in 4 times at bat to take hitting honors for the
e 8V1 s.
Eureka 11-Lewis College 1. The Red Devils smashed out 12 hits to
get on the victory trail with a vengeance. Bob Specht held the Lewis nine
to three hits, while Fred Millard, Bob Houser, Bob Nelson, Emmert, and
Broers each collected 2 hits.
Eureka 13-Lewis College 4. Eureka made a clean sweep of their twin
bill with Lewis, wining the second game behind the pitching of Herb
Hasenyager. Hasenyager also slashed out two hits, as did Nelson and
Normal 27-Eureka 6. Ouch! In a comedy of errors the Red Devils
suiered their worst defeat of the season. The Normal nine scored in every
inning but one as they rolled over the injury-riddled Red Devils. Broers,
Spencer and Houser each got two hits for Eureka.
Eureka 2-Shurtleff 1. Behind Specht's brilliant four-hit pitching,
Eureka topped Shurtleff at Alton. Broers' third inning single drove in
both Eureka runs.
Eureka 6-Shurtled 4. Scoring all six runs in the third inning, the
Red Devils took the opening half' of a doubleheader with Shurtleff. Specht
again hurled the Maroon and Gold to victory and Broers paced the hitters
with three hits in as many times at bat.
Shurtleff 15-Eureka 6. The Pioneers came back in the second half
of the double bill to avenge two previous defeats. Houser with three hits
and Millard with two led the Red Devil attack.
Eureka 6-Quincy 1. The Red Devils came up with their finest per-
formance of the season in the final game to hand Quincy's Hawks their
only loss of the year. Specht again turned in a sterling mound performance
backed up by airtight fielding and solid hitting on the part of his team-
mates. Bob Woodin snared a Quincy liner with two men on in the seventh
and threw to Sutton on first, who doubled the runner and then tossed to
Broers at second for a triple play, to choke off a promising rally by the
visitors. Specht, Nelson, and Hasenyager collected two hits apiece for the

Because men are essentially social beings the fraternities and soror-
ities came into existence and grew to importance on the Eureka scene.
Emerging stronger than ever from the war years, the Greek organizations
form an integral and valuable part of most Eureka student life. The
record on the following pages represents not only a good time but the
Worth-While results of students who in joining a social organization and
assuming the obligations and responsibilities, share in its benelits.
To a lesser degree the Independent men and Women also organized into
groups which took an active interest in social events.
DELTA DELTA PI
Delta Pi's returning to Eureka in September, 1946, included thirteen
actives and one pledge. Four girls were formally pledged at a formal ban-
quet at the Presbyterian church. Within two months, three other girls
were also pledged.
The Pumpkin Festival was the source of much work and fun. Our
"Delta Pumpkin Pi" won fourth place among non-professional floats.
In October, the pledges honored the actives and their dates with a
Weiner roast. Weeks of thought and preparation finally produced our
homecoming stunt, satirizing the Principia football team. At a tea on
Sunday afternoon, Miss Greene, our new patroness, was introduced.
The first initiation of the year raised three girls to the higher rank
of actives. Our "Honky Tonk Ball" celebrated the occasion. 1
The annual Christmas party was held at the home of Mrs. Robert?
Klaus. The pledges entertained with a stunt adapted from Dickens?
"Christmas Carol," portraying Scrooge as an active. Our Christmas sere-
On February 8, five girls were formally initiated. A formal dinner
and dance were held in Lida's Wood dining room which was decorated with
balloons of many colors. Music for the dance was provided by Paul Reid
and his orchestra.
Almost every mother was present for our annual Mother's Tea. Our
mothers were lively participants in games played at a party the preceding
nightw Fourteen girls were guests of Delta Pi the following weekend at
a dance at Magdalene Hall.
A tea was given by the alums for Mrs. Robert Quick, an alumna, and
Mrs. Myrta Pearson Ross, a charter member. Mrs. Quick sent us a pleasant
surprise in the form of a picture for the corridor.
The highlight of the year was our Spring formal dinner dance at the
Jefferson Hotel in Peoria. Toastmistress Lynn Ward introduced our new
president, Carolyn Vissering. Herman Hampy and his orchestra furnished
music for the enjoyable event.
The thirty-seventh annual birthday dinner this year was a success.
It was nice to see so many alums back.
We can long remember this year as being an extremely successful one.
Delta Pi proved to be stiff competition in sports, and all other campus ac-
tivities. Throughout the year we maintained a high scholastic record. As
we look back on this year 1946-47, our spirits rise and they soar even
higher as we glance into the future of Delta Pi.

September brought ten activie members of Phi Omega back to Eureka,
with plans for another year. The year started off with three rush parties
which turned out to be great successes, thanks to our alums and pat-
ronesses. Six new girls were pledged and honored at the annual pledge
banquet held in the Parish Hall of the Christian Church. The next sixteen
Weeks were interesting for the pledges as they served their pledgeship
and looked forward to the day they would be actives. Before they were
initiated they experienced what is known as "Hell Week." Formal initiation
was February 6, in the Chapel of the Christian Church.
This school year was packed full of fun and laughter for every mem-
ber, for we experienced many things together.
When October rolled around, we started things off with a hay-ride.
All the girls and their dates had a good time under the light of the silvery
In November we had our fall Novelty Party, the theme being
"Hunter's Holiday," due to the hunting season. The Wood was gaily
decorated with corn stalks, pheasants, ducks, and a "pot-bellied" stove.
At Christmas time we serenaded the Fraternity houses. Many of the
favorite Christmas carols were sung. Before the Christmas holiday the
pledges honored the actives with a Christmas party in the Phi O Chapter
On February 1, we held our Sweetheart Formal in Lida's Wood and
on the following day we had our Birthday Dinner. The week-end was really
gigala affair, with the dance and the returning of many alums for the
St. Patrick's Day brought a party from our alums. Patronesses, alums,
and actives all had an enjoyable evening, playing games and singing
The Phi O's and their dates were honored with a spaghetti dinner
given by two of their patronesses.
After those April Showers, May 1 rolled around, bringing the Phi O's
May Serenade. Each of the fraternity houses was presented with a dec-
orated May basket full of candies and fiowers.
Then came the main event of the year. Naturally we mean our Spring
Formal, which was our first since the war. It was held at the Pere Mar-
quette in the LaSalle Room. We all agree that it was a great success.
Closing the school year, we invited our mothers for the week-end.
We honored our mothers with a tea on Sunday afternoon, in the parlor of
Magdalene Hall. After the program and refreshments, we adjourned to
our corridor and talked of the good times we had had throughout the year.
During the entire year. we also had several house dances, the last
one being held with the Delta Pi's. Also we celebrated birthdays and five
engagements with spreads and parties.
In sports our teams showed outstanding abilities by winning first in
volleyball and badminton and taking second place in bowling.
We also received honors during Homecoming by taking first place for
our house decorations and getting honorable mention for our float.
Now that the year has come to a close, we are sorry to leave but are
already planning the days we will share together here at Eureka, meeting
new friends and enriching our old friendships, next year.

Last September found the members of Pi Chapter of Delta Zeta re-
newing old friendships and planning a busy year. At the end of rushing
we pledged twenty-two girls. Later in the year we pledged Alma Gros-
venor, Geraldine McCoy and Betty Jane Marbry-
The first big event of the year was the Pumpkin Festival, September
27 and 28, in which we entered our float. It featured a huge pumpkin blos-
som carrying out the theme: "The Festival Blooms Again."
During Homecoming ceremonies, one of our pledges, Shirley Rankin,
was crowned Homecoming Queen. We were also proud to receive the
Homecoming trophy this year.
After this suuccessful beginning we found our busy winter months
highlighted by our winter formal December 6. "The Crystal Ball' was
held at Lida's Wood.
C February 16 we had our Birthday Dinner celebrating Pi Chapter's
thirtieth year on Eureka Campus. After a short program the Ideal Active
Ring was awarded to Amelia Mancuso, and the Ideal Pledge Ring to Sally
Schlemmer. Lois Bankston received the Scholarship Bracelet for achieving
the highest scholastic average in the pledge class.
Early this spring we had a Mother's Tea. It was a lot of fun enter-
taining and becoming acquainted with each other's mothers.
The climax of the year was our spring formal held May 23 at the
Peoria Country Club. Following dinner, members and guests danced to the
music of Herman Hampy's orchestra.
There were many engagements and marriages this year: Betty Jane
Paxton and George Waggoner, Evelyn Teel and Jim Williams, Nelle Baxter
and Robert Shearl, Kathie Harding and Robert Megginson, Geraldine Mc-
Coy and Bill Morrow, and Marion Hild and Bill Taylor.
Shirley Rankin and Edwin Kroeger were married soon after the close
of the school year, Bess Fifield will soon be Mrs. Walter Lund, and Barbara
Schmidt will marry John Pontius.
We had many happy times together this past year and we are sorry to
leave but we're looking forward to another successful year in Delta Zeta.

LAMBDA CI-II ALPHA
Our fraternity was founded in 1914 as Kappa Sigma Phi. In 1926
this local fraternity became the first Illinois chapter of Theta Kappa Nu
national fraternity. In the fall of 1939, Theta Kappa Nu and Lambda Chi
Alpha, realizing that their aims, ideals and organizations were more or less
parallel, merged under the name of Lambda Chi Alpha, forming the third
largest fraternal group in the Greek World. We now have 116 chapters
in the United States and Canada, giving us the distinction of being the
largest international fraternity. Our alumni are leaders in all Walks of
Lambda Chi's take an active interest in all academic functions-scho-
lastic, athletic, music, debate, dramatics, student government, extra-
curricular, and social. Six of our men were on the varsity football team,
Kalmar Schneider being its captain, five Lambda Chi's were active on the
basketball squad, five were members of the baseball team, Fred Millard
holding the position of captain. We can boast that four of our men had
leading parts in school plays, and four others were active members of our
local forensic department. Several of our members contributed their talents
to the music department, a number of them singing in the chapel choir,
and Charles Larson being one of the members of the college quartet. George
Waggoner held the position of vice president of the student council, Bob
Smith was elected to that office for the coming school year. Bill Slagle
was editor of the Peg. We are proud of the fact that our chapter won the
homecoming trophy last fall, winning first place on house decorations and
floats, and second place on the homecoming stunt.
Our social season was unusually successful. The highlight was "Ye
Olde Pigge Feste," a dinner dance held in the best Old English tradition
and atmosphere. During the year We held a Father and Son Banquet, a
Mothers' Tea, four tea dances, five smokers, and numerous house dances.
The climax of the social season was the annual spring formal held this
year at the Peoria Country Club.
During the course of the year, we initiated twenty-seven pledges. Our
greatest strength found us with forty-five active members, one associate
member, and two pledges.

PSI ALPHA LAMBDA
Psi Alpha Lambda returned to the "campus 'neath the elms" to spend
its 27th year on Eureka College Campus. The third floor of Vennum Science
Hall served as our home and meeting place this past year. We started the
activities off right with the appointment of competent PAL's to the
The old yellow harvest moon soon called us out and we serenaded those
lovely ladies of Magdalene Hall and Lida's Wood.
Homecoming was in the air and the fellows chased the moths out of
the football togs, gave up the night life, and ran off a little excess avor-
dupois. Our Homecoming shenanigans failed to win a trophy to add to
our collection, but we masterminded the publication of those elegant Home-
coming programs and did all right, too.
We did our bit to back the March of Dimes, W.S.S.F. drive, the Cancer
Drive and other worthy causes.
Our social activities included the Rogue's Brawl, numerous smokers,
informal dances, and an all-day outing at Lake Bloomington and the Birth-
day Dinner at Ogden's. You saw us in the Plays, Operas, Chapel Choir,
Speech Contests, Debate Teams, Gospel Teams, Alpha Epsilon Sigma, and
Pi Kappa Delta. You read our chatter in the Pegasus and were no doubt
enlightened by our original feature, "Our Thought for the Day."
We made the Scholars, Who's Who in American Colleges and Uni-
versities, and we were well represented on the first Pioneer Conference
Championship Basketball team.
Our aim is a bigger and better fraternity, fostering, to the utmost,
ideals of fellowship, scholarship, and the highest moral obligations.

TAU KAPPA EPSILON
Spring has rolled around and the Teke House has returned to normal
after the war interlude. Almost all the fraters who had been in service
retturned last September and commenced a successful year.
The greatest achievement of the year was the construction of the
Annex. Anticipating a large infiux of men students, members and pledges,
under the supervision of a carpenter, went to work last summer and built
the annex, equipped with a study room and accommodations for 16 men.
As expected, there was a large group of new students and the house and
annex were filled.
The highlight of the social functions of the year was the celebration of
the 30th Anniversary of Iota Chapter. On this occasion the celebration
included a dance, open house, and a dinner. Present at the dinner were
many alumni, among them charter members Frank Felter, Dr. E. B.
Pearson, and Miles Gray.
Other social functions included content dinners for the three sororities,
a Mother's Day Banquet, and smokers for the members of Psi Alpha
Lambda and Lambda Chi Alpha, at the chapter house.
The annual Orchid Formal was held at Lida's Wood last winter and
the guests danced to the music of Freddy Stevens and his orchestra. The
Spring Formal was held in the 'Grand Ballroom of the Jeierson Hotel.
During the summer months, the Eureka College quartette is making
a 1500-mile tour and with them can be found Fraters Mather and Condee.
These men plus Fraters Bennett, Whitcomb and Ettinger were members
of the College Choir of which George Whitcomb was president. These men
also took part in the presentation of the Operetta "Iolanthe." Greg J osseck
and Jim Highlander were our dramatic representatives and took leads in
the college dramatic productions. Tau Kappa Epsilon was well represented
in ahletics this year. Members on the football team were Albertson,
Dean, Nelson, George Whitcomb, Bud Whitcomb, Poorbaugh, Richards,
and Morrow. On the Championship Basketball Team of the Pioneer Con-
ference we were represented by Bill Poorbaugh and Warren Collier. War-
ren was selected to be placed in the all-conference first team. Emmert and
Nelson were members of the college baseball team. These men were all
elected members of the "E" Tribe, the school's lettermen's club, of which
Jack Greuling is vice president.
Both school publications' editors can be found in the house. Jim Wil-
liams is the editor of this edition of the yearbook and Jack Greuling was
elected to head the Pegasus for the coming year. Two of our men, Williams
and Shannon, are members of the speech fraternity, Pi Kappa Delta.
On June 7, Commencement marked the close of one of the most suc-
cessful years for both Eureka College and the social organizations of the
campus. Many seniors graduated but the entrance of new students promises
to aid the promotion of an even more successful group next year.

The Independent Women became oiiicially organized in April of this
year. Ann Lundberg was elected as chairman of the group and Jean
Salmon was chosen as secretary-treasurer.
, The purpose of organizing was to set up a unified group on campus
to carry out specific social projects. Plans were made for a serenade in
conjunction with the Independent Men, and a Spring Tea to entertain
faculty members, their Wives, and sorority representatives.
As a climax to the year's activities, the girls and their guests were
entertaned on a hayride at the home of Doris Dyar, Metamora, Illinois.
Ofiicers Were elected for next year and tentative plans for a further
progressing organization were outlined.

The Independent Men, the largest social group on campus, began its
first full year as an organization in '46-'47.
Our officers for the iirst half year were: Scott Simer, president,
William Brown, vice president, and Edward Willis, secretary-treasurer.
At mid-year Clarence Fauber was elected president, Howell Bischoff, vice
president, and Jim Alexander, secretary-treasurer.
Our group began the school year with a serenade of the ladies' dorms.
Not long- afterward we planned a hayride--which a rainstorm turned into
a cozy theater party. '
In other fields of endeavor Indee men proved themselves outstanding.
Bob Houser and Dick Broers starred in varsity athletics. John Binkley,
Larry Pitman, and Don Littlejohn carried school colors in forensics. Indee
men entered and were second to none in college drama, music, scholarship,
and journalism. We were a real threat in the intra-mural race, and car-
ried well over our share in contributions to the W.S.S.F. and overseas
All in all, '46-'47 has been a happy and successful year for us and for
Eureka College. We'll be hoping-and working-for even a better year in

The traditional open air graduation exercises were held on June 5, when thirty-two
seniors recived their bachelor degrees. The Class of '47 was the largest one graduated
since 1940. Over half were veterans of World War II.
Dr. Durward Sandifer, a former student and instructor of the college, gave the
graduation address in which he stressed the advance of attitudes toward international
organization and human welfare. "The task is yours," he told the graduates, "to see
that the gap is bridged between aspiration and realization, between the establishment of
institutions and turning them into dynamic controlling forces in the life of the world,
between human welfare in a blueprint and human welfare in the daily life of human beings
around the globe."
A highlight of the ceremonies took place with the conferring of Honorary Doctor of
Laws Degrees on Sandifer and Gaines Cook, another prominent graduate of Eureka.
Following the graduation the seniors and juniors held their Ivy Ceremony.
