PURCELL RANDY JONES Editor Business Manager ' otewota The editors of The Interlachen present with great pleasure the 1940 book with the hope that each of you will find some incident or scene which will express the meaning of this college year to you That expression has been the goal to which we directed our efforts. In writing this last piece of copy there is the awkward experience of attempting to express graciously our grati- tude to those whose conspicuous labors have given the book its distinguishing features. To them we say thanks a million! They are: Dr. K. Gibson Weihe for his advisory super- vision and for his contributions to the literary and art work on the theme; Miss Jane Golding for the tedious preparation of copy; Randy Jones for pounding the pave- ment soliciting advertisements; the other staff members for their various amounts of work; and the student body for its patience in the picture taking and editing of this book. ovet eMciti Still, white and deeply poignant, the Hindu Temple stands in the midst of the Garden of Meditation, a continual memorial to the man, Bishop Frederick B. Fisher, who gave it to us It is therefore eminently fitting that a picture of this temple, which plays so significant a role in campus life, should introduce the color features of the 1940 Interlachen. ■%••■• • antenu ADMINISTRATION Introduction, Dedication, Board of Trus- tees, Faculty, Campus Views, Chair of Democracy, Founders ' Week CLASSES Seniors, Summer School Graduates, Ju- niors, Sophomores, Freshmen PERSONALITIES Honor Walk, Miss Southern, Celebrities ACTIVITIES Governmental Bodies, Honorary Fraterni- ties, Fine Arts, Professional Fraternities, Publications, Social Fraternities ATHLETICS Boards, Varsity, Men ' s Sports, Women ' s Sports, Snapshots, Advertisements teme HEAR YE ' HEAR YE! " Sound, sound the clarion; fill the fife ! To all the circumambient world proclaim ' One tiny hour of glorious life Is worth an age without a name " " Embooked now before you, as beautifully as we could book it. is the person-colored activity of our latest College Year. (Flourish Banner and Trumpet !). Every mother ' s Son and Daughter enrolled on the college books for 1939-1940 is represented somehow in the Book. (Roll, Drum ! Ring, Bell!). Quintessence of Youthful Life Hail! (Huzzahs 1 ). Like no other day ever, is this Day; like no other year, this Year; like no other book ever, this Book! (Strike up the Band!). Gone is the Age of Iron, of Bronze, of Jazz; gone are the Tremu- lous years of the Thirties; gone, the furtive Idealisms, the Sham Cloister. This is the Book of New Beginnings, the latest Syllable of Recorded Time. (Blow, Bugle!). And now as the Forties come roaring in with War again staining the far, dark Horizon we Youthful Ones do here denounce that Evil and its brood— the Hypocrisy, the Greed, the ruthless Strides of tiger Power, the social Scurvies, the smug and leaden-footed Traditional- isms, all the Razzle-dazzle, all the Trivial and Shoddy. We ask our Elders to join us honestly in seeing Life steadily and seeing it whole. For we are in a perilous Drama together as Toilers under Fate Let us be true to One Another lest the Drama again turn tragic (Cym- bals, Clash ' ). A Yearbook is like a revolving Door . . . through it pass the Months, as on Review, and through it like Figures haunted by sweet Ghosts, we also pass, we Youthful Ones, out into the world of After-days. (Kettle-drums, beat ' ). Reader, Viewer, be gentle . . . we ' ve tried to represent You in your best Bib and Tucker, so to speak, as the Months in 1939-40 drew you after them, filling the Campus with Color and Drama. Blame not us if you aren ' t beautiful — blame Heredity— or the perversity of Mother Nature. (Soft Music, Play ' ). ANNIE M. PFEIFFER The 1940 Interlachen is dedicated to Annie M. Pfeiffer, who is making possible the beautiful chapel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. This chapel, which is the first building in the E. Stanley Jones Educational Foundation, will be known as the Annie M. Pfeiffer chapel. The editors desire to express the appreciation of the trustees, faculty, alumni, and students for this beautiful gift from a great lover of mankind.

To the Students of Florida Southern College Dear Friends: First of all I want to congratulate the editors and business managers of the 1940 edition of The Interlachen. I believe that you will agree with me that it is an attractive book. To the seniors this will be an invaluable book as the years unfold. It will bring back to them thousands of happy memories. The college will miss them next year. As they go but to represent Florida Southern I want to wish for each one of them much satisfaction and enjoyment in all of their undertakings To you who will return next year I want to wish for you a happy summer. Next year will be better for us. Our beautiful chapel will be finished, and the new indus- trial arts building will be under construction. The whole E. Stanley Jones Foundation will begin to take shape. As your president I take great pride in all of your successes. I hope you will always keep in mind that I shall ever remain Your friend, LUDD M SPIVEY. fc 4; WALL ALLEN SIMS BARRITT GUYTON KIRKLAND Board of Trustees BOYD WHITE Officers o f the board are J.

Ml Mutiny on the Bounty A CONFERENCE Dramatis Personae: President Summa Cum Laude, Deans Magna Cum Laude, Cum Laude, and Laude. Pres. S. C. L: Gentlemen, we are confronted with a serious situation. Our seniors, with one voice, have informed me that they refuse to graduate! I ' m flabbergas . . . er . . . ah . . , nonplussed. Not in fifty years ' experience have I known a senior to shudder at the thought of leaving college with his sheepskin under his arm, his con- fident gaze piercing the sky of the future, his — Dean M. C. L: Now, now . . . easy does it. It may be just spring madness ... or vitamin deficiency ... or (laughing) the New Deal. Pres. S. C. L: That ' s just it! The specter of W. P. A rears its ugly . . . looms before them. They want to remain tied to Alma Mater ' s apron strings all their lives ' We ' re stuck with them 1 We ' ve made them as happy here as ... as pigs in clover. Dean Laude I in distant reverie I : We had my wife ' s brother and his family to dinner one night That was years ago. (Sadly) They ' re still with us. Dean Cum Laude (facetiously): Confucius say sheepskin passe. No longer skin you love to touch. Pres. S. C. L. (sternly) : My good man, your levity is ill-timed. Try to understand the seriousness of the picture. In years to come, unless we solve this problem now, our campus will be crawling with thousands of ungraduated students, beginning all over again as freshmen, shoving eagerly into lectures, drinking thirstily at college fountains . . . and incidentally, rendering our food supply null and void ! Dean Laude: We ' ll get social security for them ... for all of us! Dean M. C. L.: Why not? Think . . . this is a blessing in disguise We ' ll rear a new race of men and women unspotted by the world . Promethean giants ' (A commotion is heard outside. Excited voices, shuffling of feet, then a hush, as the President of the Senior Class enters, humble, apologetic). P. ofS. C. : Sirs, it ' s all a mistake! We were, ah . a bit headlong I mean head- strong, that is, precipitant . . . Pres. S. C. L.: Try a simple word, you ninny . . . out with it ' P. of S. C: Well, we want to graduate after all. Couldn ' t stay on in school here, by any means My girl says she ' ll marry me, and she ' s persuaded her dad to give me a job. And the idea ' s caught on! All the seniors are working on it. Except a few . . . and they are affiliated with the Fuller Brush Co, Real Silk Hosiery Co., and one or two hope to work into the consular service by way of the W. P. A ! We love the old Alma Mater, sure, but Life Marches On ! ( Exeunt ! . Pres. S. C. L. (as Deans M C , C. L. and Laude mop relieved brows and make bleat- ing noises) : Come along to the S. A. B.

Two Men in a Boat AN OCEANOGRAPHIC EPISODE Dramatis Personae: Professor Solomon Wise, Cholmondelay (Chumly) Jones, a student Scene: The Ocean (of learning). ( For many days Wise and Jones have labored in the deep blue waters. The former, according to the precepts of the Navigation Committee of the Education Department, holds the tiller, the latter plies the oars. Jones ' efforts may be described as spas- modic — a series of furious short hauls followed by periods of profound inaction, or else of light featherings of the blades in the scalps of the waves. Rarely, while his com- panion lay exhausted on the bottom of the boat, Wise has manned the oars. At nc time can Jones discern the port clearly; but, Wise, having been ferried there by gen- erations of young oarsmen, points, with many a learned comment, in its direction). Professor Wise: Courage 1 Your oars will draw us shoreward soon. Yonder lies the harbor — just two assignments more. Meanwhile, I shall complete my lecture on . . . Cholmondelay: Beg pardon, sir; I thought there was only one assignment left My arms ache, my neck has stiffened out of shape, my hands are cracked, and, I believe, commence to bleed Let ' s drift a while The sea is terrible and wide. Besides, I ' d rather rest than get to port, anyhow. Prof. Wise: Buck up, my boy. Say not the struggle naught availeth ! Land with its citied towers rises |ust over the rim, bathed in pearly light, and yes, there will be standing the Dean, waiting. Good old Deany! He ' s holding up three fingers — do you know what that means? Cholmondelay (wearily): Faith, hope and charity, I suppose. Or maybe he plans to give me the third degree! Prof. Wise (in kindly rebuke) : Nonsense. Three credits for your work when you arrive. And he holds up a card with a " C " on it, too 1 Now, as I was saying, the amoeba eats with his feet — his pseudopodia, to be exact. (Shyly facetious) Hem 1 Every time he opens his foot he has his mouth in it. Cholmondelay: I think I ought to have a " B " . Prof. Wise: That is a metaphysical consideration, entirely, my boy, relatively unim- portant. Now just a steady puil past that island where the sirens are, avoiding the whirlpool off the north shore — that ' s your final examination — and we ' ll disembark, full of experience, triumphantly! There ' s some seawater in the boat. I ' ll have just time to finish my lee — Look out — ! (A large whale careens toward the boat, threat- ening to swamp it. A light yellow fog has meanwhile tentacled the mariners) . Mag- nificent fellow 1 Mammal, you know. Viviparous Baleen bearer. Verdigris pro- ducer when he ' s sick. Cholmondelay ( Handling the boat with desperate daring, pulls out of danger and they approach the shore) : Whales, fog, sirens, whirlpools, — I ' ve survived them all — I ' m educated! But look at my poor, bleeding hands ' (He holds them out woefully). Prof. Wise (closing his book, folding his notes and putting them in his pocket) : Nature ' s own formula for learning, my boy. When you ' re an alumnus you ' ll be proud of your college callouses. Shall we join the Dean? (Then with hearty wit) : A three- point landing, eh, Cholmondelay? Cholmondelay (wearily stumbling up the beach) : " I still think I ought to have a " B " . — K.

' . etso-na title There are lots of ways to be winsome, And plenty of ways to be smart;— But the only way to be famous Is keeping head anchored to heart. It isn ' t enough to be brainy, And hardly enough to be good: — If you can ' t figure out when it ' s rainy You ' d as well turn into wood. There are forty-odd ways to be beauteous, And forty-odd lotions to use: — But it ' s best to avoid being " snooty-ous, " And, of course, don ' t be a goose! Oh, it ' s fine having nice personality, And seeing folks like you quite well - But they won ' t if you ' ve any rascality — Or a head quite likely to swell.

J attaXc cr the _ timutiitc _. I n. tcr.sluy. The years pile up, and out of them, like stars ' Bright birth in twilight deeps, the masters rise. Enskied above the world, no devil mars The lucent beauty shining from their eyes. The tiny wit of multitudes complies (Responsive only to the bondsman ' s whip) With all but Titan truth or lethal lies — Not dull galvanic life ' s our goal, but mastership ' Few know that Earth ' s heart beats with blood of flame, That punctual sun and moon preserve them For nothing more than brute — besotted fame, Or worse — not any sort of diadem. But authors, statesmen, artists — all condemn Designs smeared out by broad, blunt finger-tip, And time expended on some ten-cent gem — Not freak galvanic action lures, but mastership! A dream resolved from the chaos of sham, A mind ' s sure grasp of the god-like surmise, The love of the artist for tiger and lamb, The white anger born of a hatred of lies, Activities are of the kings of emprise. We with the hand, the heart, the brain equip Ourselves to paint, or write, or speak — devise Not dark galvanic dullness, but a mastership!

Overhead, bearing an octagonical-conical roof covered with green octagonal scales, is a system of intervolved right and isocoles angled supports. Everything out- side this Euclidean structure is in eclipse, steeped in utter dark, like the abyss of space. The skaters spin, like twin stars caught in the nebula of Andromeda. They glow, like orbs that kindle at each other ' s incandescence. Even the music of the spheres is caught by a sound-tortured victrola furiously blaring " 0, Johnny, 0, Johnny O 1 " ). Velocity (looking up with dreamy archness): You skate divinely, Sinny, old duck. Hum. . um. . m (She allows her vocal chords to vibrate in unison with the cacophony escaping from the victrola ' s every pore). Sinew (gazing fondly down, his rapture is poetic 1 : This is the floor of heaven, and you Ye an angel I ' ve picked up. (Then mildly outraged 1 Where do you get that " old duck " stuff— babe? Velocity (still ' love-in-a-mist ' ) Call me angel, .old duck. Sinew: Oke, Babe, .angel. (He laughs suddenly into the rafters ' Angel-babe! Howzat? Angel-babe! Velocity: Not bad, Sinny-duck, (They laugh uproariously) That ' s not bad, either — " the floor of heaven. " Doc Weehee would like that phrase. Spring it on him sometime, he might raise you to a D Sinew (the smile drains off his face) . Great snakes and poppy seed, that reminds me. I gotta English test tomorrow. Velocity (quoting) : " Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace till the last syllable of recorded time " Sinew (soberly) : Yea, tomorrow and the petty pace ' " Tote dat weary load 1 " Velocity (cheerily) : Oh well, tomorrow is just a metaphysical concept. Right now we ' re rolling in the present — rolling, rolling — (She sings " Rolling, Rolling Over the Bounding Main " ). This is eternity, old duck This is the floor of heaven we ' re on. " Rolling, rolling, etc. " Sinew: Yeah — (dubiously making an effort to brighten). Velocity: Oh, cheer up. He might lecture and forget the test. (Suddenly in a giggling humor) : Flat-foot Floogie on the floy, floy, Flat-foot Floogie on the floy of heaven ! (She is overcome with a convulsion of laughter, loses her balance, and topples, while Sinew, by a superhuman effort and wild gyration, retains his rolling contact with the elliptical plane). Sinew (tomorrow forgotten) : Ho 1 Ho 1 fallen angel 1 Now who ' s the duck? Flat- foot Velocity on the floor of heaven ' Hi ' Hi ' Velocity and her sprawl stroke — wheee ! Velocity (her feelings a bit hurt) : Come, pick me up, you quack ' Take me home to Mother and the liniment bottle (Philosophically) Pretty slippery — the floor of heaven. (Then, seeing Sinew chapfallen and serious, with the double load of tomor- row and crippled Velocity on his hands, she softens contemplatively) : I hope he lec- tures, Sinew 1 — (Exeunt into the dark, their skates dangling noisily from straps around their necks.) — K.

Best game of the year was with the Barbarians, which the " A ' s " won by a single touchdown as the result of a penalty. The " A ' s " kept their goal line uncrossed throughout the season. This year ' s program was marked by the improvement of the other teams in the league, notably the Chi Rho Lions. HORSESHOES The nag-slipper competition was brought to a close with the Alpha Sig " A " team winning another championship. Barbarians finish- ed a good second, nearly upsetting the highly favored Alps. In the individual tournament, Floyd " Elmer " Lay defeated Chub- by Fulton, Lay eliminated Bob Smith in the semi-finals and Fulton reached the last bracket by an upset victory over first-seeded Bud Pace. HORACE FORSHAY Horseshoe Manager FLOYD LAY Individual Winner VOLLEYBALL Upset by the Barbarians in their first clash, the Alps, led by rangy Bob Smith with his overhead spikings, came back to take the second match, the trophy, and their third cham- pionship. This was made possible through the work of their " little brothers " who came through with an upset of their own when they conquered the over-confident Barbs. ARCHIE McQUAGGE Volleyball Manager CLARENCE THACKER Ping-Peng Manager SHUFFLEBOARD Closest race of the season came in shuffleboard, with Lambda Chi Alpha outshuffling Chi Rho and Alpha Sigma in post-season matches. In the individual tournament Ed Wilson of the A ' s defeated teammate Bob Marshall to take the winner ' s cup. In a series of well-played matches Alpha Sigma annexed another team title in the ping-pong tournament. In the indvidual meet two Independents clash- ed, with Don Rankin winning over George Shriver. ALBERT HOLMES Shuffleboard Manager ED WILSON Shuffleboard Winner 4 t • ALTON KINDRED Foul-Shooting Champion FRANK MORLEY Basketball Manager ALPHA SlbMA A I LAM Tennis Champs BASKETBALL In a season that saw the teams slowed up because of the ruling that varsity players could not play on the intramural teams the Alpha Sigs, led by Curry, Pace and Shepherd, went through an undefeated season, marched toward a grand slam of the team trophies for the intra- mural sports. They were followed by the Lambda Chis, Independents, and Chi Rhos. While there was never any doubt after the first few games as to the winner, all games were much more even than in several years past. TENNIS Entries included such stars of former years as Smith, Roberts, Purcell, Thacker, Behrens and others After coasting through their preliminary matches Smith and Roberts reached the finals which were taken by Smith, 6-8; 8-6; 6-0; 10-8. Led by the season ' s top doubles team of Smith and Marshall the Alpha Sigma " A " team continued their domination of intramural sports by taking the tennis trophy. The title was in doubt until the final match which brought the " A ' s " and Lambda Chis together. The " A ' s " won 6-1; 4-6; and 6-0.

HOWARD DuBOSE Bowling Manager FLOYD LAY Duck-Pin Champion BOWLING In the individual races Floyd Lay took his second individual championship of the year when he cap- tured the duck-pin title, Clarence Campbell carried off the trophy in the ten-pin class. A large number of students participated despite final exams. The Alpha Sigma teams again gained the team trophies in both events but only after a tough strug- gle with the Lions of Chi Rho CLARENCE CAMPBELL Ten-Pin Champion 1 V COACH GENE BATTLE JIMMY KING Track Manager SOFTBALL Looming as pre-season favorites on the Softball horizon were Alpha Sigma A ' s, who trounced the Inde- pendents 7-1 in the second game of the season. Opening game between the B ' s and Chi Rhos was won 14-8 by the B ' s, whose lead was threatened but never overcome. B ' s lost to Lamb- da Chi Alpha in the next game, 18-13. The deadline for copy came before any more games were played. DON TOLLE Softball Manager • .5— BLEACHER SEATS ♦ % ♦ ■ ;i - • • i 1111 1 1 i WoSH di SpXVlti ♦■ ♦ ■ VARSITY BASKETBALL Co-eds opened their court battles against Rollins College, upheld their last year ' s record of no defeats by downing the Rollins sextet, 22-20. The Rollins squad, playing on their home court, kept pace with the Moccasinettes so closely that victory was never certain until the final whistle Tampa University, next on the schedule, fell before the power of the Long-led Southern co-eds Last games of the season were with Lakeland High School, with Southern easily winning, 35-16 and 47-12. Mocca- sinettes look forward to more collegiate games next year. BMMMMBMMI NELLIE WEAVER Special Events Manager LORENA LONG Basketball Coach VARSITY TEAM n ♦ i ALPHA CHI Champions ERMA WHITTLE Volleyball Manager VOLLEYBALL Intramurals opened for women with Kappa Gam- ma Tau downing Theta Chi Beta and the Delta Zetas upsetting the Independents in three games, 4-15, 17-15, and 15-2. Best game of the entire volleyball season was between Delta Zeta and Alpha Chi Omega in the second round. Delta Zeta nosed out a victory, 15-9, 10-15, 16-14. After this defeat, Alpha Chi tightened its defense, lost no more games, and won the season trophy. k • • ♦ ■♦ ' ♦ EDNA LONG Norwegian Baseball Manager NORWEGIAN BASEBALL At the end of the first round, Independents and Alpha Chis were tied for first place. Theta Chi Beta won their first game of the season by defeating the Delta Zetas in the second round by one point, when Bea Bonhus failed by two steps to tie the score. ACO again took first place, with KGT runner-up. All-star team as picked by the intramural board was composed of Erma Whittle, Lorena Long, Nellie Weaver, Elizabeth Tyler, Leila Rice, Peggy Edwards, Bea Bonhus, Nancy Moody, and Helen Davison. BADMINTON Badminton, intramural ' s youngest sport, gained many followers as co-eds " watch-the-birdie " fly back and forth across the net. Competition was close throughout this sport with a three-way tie among the KGT, Ind , and ACO resulting Individual finals were a review of last year, with Lorena Long again winning over Nellie Weaver for the individual trophy. -J». MMN? t BETTY ANNE CLAPP Badminton Manager ■ • 4 MARIE SHEPARD Speedball Manager SPEEDBALL Kappa Gamma Tau eked out a one-point victory over the Alpha Chi Omega to open the speedball season. Kappa Gams scored the winning goal in the last minutes of play to win by a 9-8 count. The Collier twins ' teamwork was excellent for KGT; Lorena Long and Erma Whittle were outstanding for Alpha Chi Tri Zetas introduced their first team in this sport; beat the Theta Chis in their first game. Most exciting contest in the speedball sea- son took place when the Alpha Chis and the Delta Zetas kicked to a tie; played this off in an extra three minutes with the Alpha Chis scoring two touchdowns to win the game. Only one round of this sport was played. Kappa Gams took first place with the Alpha Chis trailing second. NELLIE WEAVER Foul -Shooting Champion • ♦ -4 ♦ PING-PONG The Kappa Gam racket artists up- set the Alpha Chis in the final set to take the ping-pond championship. This tournament was full of upsets as the weaker Theta Chis and Tri Zetas won over some of the stronger teams. Leila Rice became the women ' s ping-pong champion by defeating Lorena Long, thrice winner. Leila failed to reach the finals last year, but pulled herself into a top place this year. BASKETBALL Opening the season with a win over the Theta Chis, the Inde- pendents were on the way to becoming a definite threat to the Alpha Chi championship. Tightest game of the season occurred when the Tn Zetas came from behind to tie the Delta Zetas 8-8. Barbara Old, Collier twins, Laretha Lord, Connie Harvey, Mary Bow and Jessie Withrow were newcomers furnished by the freshman class. Alpha Chis and Independents met in the last game undefeated, but Alpha Chi took the game to end the season with a perfect record. In foul shooting, which followed basketball, the Independents cap- tured first place, with the Kappa Gams placing as runner-up, when Nellie Weaver totaled 33 out of 50 free throws, defeating Peggy Edwards in the individual contest by one point. BARBARA COLLAR Manager LELLA RICE Winner SUE ELLA CASON Basketball Manager LUCILLE TRASK Manager HELEN DAVISON nner ■ E - lte» k ELIZABETH TYLER Softball Manager SHUFFLEBOARD By defeating the Tri Zetas 52-41 and 51-50 the Alpha Chis won the shuffleboard title for this year. The Tri Zetas took second place. Among the first losers in the individual shuffleboard matches was Erma Whittle, last year ' s winner. Helen Davison defeated her and went on to take first place. SOFTBALL That editorial nightmare, the deadline, finds the women ' s soft- ball season still unopened. We predict an exciting season with Tri Zetas entering their first Softball team; with Elizabeth Tyler, the Independents ' most valuable pitcher, in good form; and the hard- hitting Alpha Chis ready to knock the cover off any pitched balls. Seniors look forward to a fourth annual clash between Alpha Chi Omega and the Independents in the finals. ♦ ♦ - ■ 6 PAT COLLIER Tennis Champion TENNIS Kappa Gamma Tau was ceded first among soro- rity netters because of the outstanding drives and volleys of the Collier twins, but the Independents won the opening match and were well on their way to upset the ceded players As net games prog- ressed, the Alpha Chis yielded last year ' s top posi- tion to the Independents and Kappa Gams. These undefeated teams battled through three sets, Inde- pendents out-steadying the Kappa Gams to win the match, 0-6, 7-5, 6-3, and the title. ARCHERY New honors were won in archery, when Southern entered a state-wide Columbia round among college women, and took second place Another second place was won by the feminine Robin Hoods at Stet- son ' s play day. Intramural champion was Alpha Chi Omega. Helen Davison was individual winner, Nellie Weaver and Lorena Long were second and third place win- ners. 1 ELIZABETH CALLAWAY Tennis Manager HELEN DAVISON Champion PEGGY EDWARDS Manager 1 r • 4 i M.
