and somehow finding it easy to coordinate their time between grades
and gals . . . the administration working feverishly to accommodate the
students with dorm annexes and the little red barracks . . . Tilly beaming as
he surveyed the potential football and basketball material.
How Much There Was To Do? . . .
Organizations competing for open dates on the social calendar already
sagging under the strain of teas, open houses, formal dances, State Days,
pledge parties and the like . . . the hilarious Homecoming celebration . . .
athletic holidays with their tree entertainment . . . quick trips to the AL. and
the Canteen for refreshments.
And How The Little Things Affeeied Ue? . . .
Campus factions being ready to exchange blows about political differ-
ences one minute and laughing it off the next . . . classmates becoming
papas the night before a big exam . . . pledges learning to appreciate their
fraternities during "Reconstruction Week" . . . daily cha el re orts on
prexie's condition after the accident.

Interest in student government reached a high pitch during
the last part ot the first semester and continued through the sec-
ond semester when the twin questions of legality and constitu-
tionality entered every conversation among students. The prob-
lems were finally solved, temporarily, at least, by a committee
of deans, but the concern engendered kept students on their toes
the rest ot the year. The spectacle of half the student body hang-
ing over the balcony, watching what proved to be almost a battle
of blows on the chapel iloor, was spiced with the jack-in-the-box
action ot Louis Haynes jumping up and Cummins pulling him
down in his seat again.,
Student Council itself returned to the merit system and was
captained by lack Foster. Projects tor the year included the re-
working oi the constitution, the revision oi the merit system and
the establishment oi a permanent holiday committee. On Home-
coming Day, the council sponsored the all-campus and alum
dance at the Armory, the tloat decorations, the tug-of-war and
the judging of the iloats during the parade. .

Franklinites were volubly apprecia-
tive of the excellent jobs done by the
F r e s h rn a n Councilors for Women.
These girls were selected by the Dean
of Women to assist her in acclirnating
entering freshman Women to college
life. Whether it was to direct new
residents to the showers or carry bag-
gage and bed clothing, they were on
the beam, assisting and advising.
They arrived with the beginning of
orientation week, simplified the com-
plexities of college adjustment for the
novices, and with a friendly word of
encouragement, started the "young-
sters" on their new careers.

Campus last fall to replace Alpha Phi Gamma, national
coeducational journalism fraternity which had died out
when Theta Sigma Phi, national women's professional jour-
nalism fraternity, was installed on this campus for the
benefit of the Women students last year. The club elected
three officers to guide it through its first year. They were
James Woodard, president, Bob Moore, vice-presidenty and

fellows who intended to make journalism their career.
What is an Almanack? Mr. Webster spells it "almanac" and
defines it as a book or table containing a calendar of days, Weeks
and months to which astronomical .data and various statistics
are often added. Well, this is the Almanack, spelled as Ben
Franklin spelled it for Poor Richard. lt is chockiul of the various
statistics Mr. Webster mentions, but the only astronomical data
so far as the editors can see are the star-gazing couples who stroll
arm in arm and look heavenward in the' balmy spring evenings.
But they too are an integral part' of college life.

lim Woodard edited the campus newspaper, The Franklin. A
conscientious editor, to Whom a deadline was a "must," he faced
almost insurmountable difficulties in having his journal published.
Many were the trips he made to Naptown where the printer was
located and long were the hours he slaved far, far into the night
in order that Franklin College students might be well-informed about
their campus. Under lim's tutelage, the news sheet developed into
a six-page paper With ads that were bright and sassy and supple-
mented by a shopping column Written by Io Smith as an added
service to the advertiser. Uknother idea of Iim's.l The Franklin
office Was moved to the south end of the second floornwhere it
Worked in close conjunction with Mrs. Moore's journalism office

An all-absorbing interest in music was the basis for
one ol the most engrossing and satisfying activities on
the Franklin College block. The halt hour of credit which
students received was not the only reason they soundly
supported the college orchestra. To endure the long
patient hours of rehearsal and the distinctive rap of the
directors baton on the music stand which meant start
from the beginning, one must have a deep love for
music. The orchestra contributed much to the success of
the now traditional yearly oratorio, "The Messiah" by
Handel. The aggregation was greatly augmented this
year by new talent and was conducted by Professor
Robert A. Simpers.

Some of our most pleasant musical memories of the
year came from the College Choir. Townspeople and
students alike who heard the mighty and majestic
"Messiah" by Handel in December will remember the
choir which contributed 48 of the 100 voices which sang
the Christmas oratorio. Even students who had exams
the neqct day paused on the way back from the lib to
hear the glorious "Hallelujah Chorus" as it poured out
the partially-opened windows and into the wintery si-
lence. They sang for special functions within and with-
out the confines of the college campus, displaying ex-
ceptional talent in all appearances.

The college band made its first ap-

months. From their vantage point be-

When Miss MacGregor couldn't make it, one of

Guild, usually played for chapel programs. And if

serenade the students.
The only prerequisite for membership in Organ
Guild, one of Frank1in's most exclusive organizations,
is either being able to play the organ or having a yen
toward organ music. ln addition to working on the

members sponsored a movie in chapel and made
other organizations envious by enjoying one of the

WIGS AND CUES
Like or good blocking back in football, Wigs and
Cues, campus dramatic organization, stood behind
all Thespians at Franklin. The college block was
abuzz with ilattery for those who manned the lights
and the curtains and spent their free time painting
flats so the play could go on.
Smudgecl faces and paint-bedaubed jeans were
the only laurels worn by the hard-working lads and
lassies of Wigs and Cues, but they were gratified
just to know that they were part of the successful
productions which the dramatics crowd presented at
Franklin. They nailed and pounded, they begged and

peat" and "Village Green" and the famous Franklin
one-act plays which were student-directed. After the

cessful evening with a "come as you are" party in
Along with the labor involved, members received
a liberal education in the dramatic field at their bi-
monthly meetings. An English movie actor, a teen-age
magician, and student pantomimes kept attendance
high. Professor I. Daniel Kocher was mentor of the

Every student loves to "sound oft." The
forensics program at Franklin College is
coached by Professor I. Daniel Kocher, head
of the department of speech, and gives us all
an opportunity to define before an audience
our views on what is Wrong with labor, in-
dustry, and the World in general.
Debate as an activity steamed ahead this
year for the iirst time since l943 with teams
traveling to other schools for inter-collegiate
opposition. Organizations which fostered de-
bates were the revived Gavel and Rostrum,
membership in which is open to all who are
interested in speech, and Pi Kappa Delta, na-
tional speech honorary. The iorrner was
Pi Kappa Delta

founded in 1941 for those novices Whose tal-
ents would later entitle them as upperclass-
men to appointment to the latter.
Officers of Gavel and Rostrum were Don
Williams, president: Marilyn Force, vice-presi-
dent: and Ellen Spencer, secretary. Group de-
bates Were staged with Butler University in
Indianapolis on the baffling labor-versus man-
agement question With meetings being held
on both campuses. ln February, the president
and vice-president represented the college at
Earlham College in the Indiana State Oratori-
cal Contest. And this year, for the first time in
so many, a delegate from the local chapter
represented the college at the national Pi
Kappa Delta convention.
The little bit of ham that is in the worst
and the best of us came to the fore for
Professor I. Daniel Kocher this year, he of
the d r a rn a department. The fir st all-
carnpus play presented was "Suspect," a
thriller which turned the first niqht atmos-
phere to the temperature of ice water. The
mood linqered, for on the second night of
the play not an empty seat could be
found in the house. "Suspect" was "good
theater": the shudder that permeated the
audience as the curtain closed with Con-
nie Kakavecos Ifthe suspectl chopping
away at the block of Wood testifed to that.

Then there were the always enjoyable

directed-and-produced tradition at Frank-
lin College. Theta Alpha Phi, college dra-
matics honorary, Worked in conjunction
with the speech department to sponsor
"In 'The Tunnel," "Sandalwood Box," and
"Fantasy On An Empty Stage." All were
excellent in every respect. As soon as
the props were returned and the stage
was cleared, Professor Kocher turned to
arranging tryouts for the spring play,

The campus gab was interspersed
this year with exclamatory remarks
about those lucky persons Who were
elected to the honorary societies. But
lit Wasn't all luck. A great deal of
it was determination: some of it was
just natural talent, but most of it was
plain old hard Work. Those who were
selected for honoraries laid the ground-
work for such foundations of future suc-
cess by pitching into various activities
and assuming responsibility the f irst
year they hit the campus. They didn't
mind the work backstage: they labored
on minor committees: they made the
most of each infinitesimal Franklin as-
signment given them and they took
time out to get every lesson every day.
That's how honors were Won.

spring depends on the women of Gold Quill, local scholar-

have the responsibility for each little detail from the posy

they who coordinate the pavanne about the May Pole,

One oi the most important campus groups came back
into active being this year with Harold Richter at the helm
of the good ship, Blue Key. The night of registration day
brought the annual dance where KeeCoNut Queen Ioan
Roler of Zeta Tau Alpha was crowned by Prexy Rick, and
several new members were tapped. Under the tprotective
wing of alumni members such as Harvey C. lacobs, Blue
Key managed to breathe during the war years, pledging
several who deserved recognition for scholarship and serv-
icep but most of tts varied activities were curtailed. This
year the first freshman queen was chosen since 19425 the
following year, 1943, Blue Key adopted a policy of pur-
chasing war bonds with the money formerly allotted to the

was established some years ago on the campus for the
purpose of recognizing under-class male students who were
Worthy from the standpoint of scholarship and activities.
Members of Lancers assist Blue Key when they are needed
by the parent group, although membership in Lancers does
not entitle the onelso honored to be named to Blue Key.

Tl-IETA SIGMA Pl-II
Theta Sigma Phi, journalism honorary and professional fra-
ternity for junior and senior women, celebrated its first year of
establishment on the Franklin campus. Members did the college
proud with their talent and their activities. Ioan Minner edited
the Almanack: vice-president lo Smith was copy editor on the
same publication: Katy I. Green served The Franklin as news
editor and lane Leach, president, was named managing editor
of The Franklin for the year. B. C. Mills, as a member of Mademoi-
selle College Board, Worked for an honorary editor's position on
Along with their other interests they found time to pledge
juniors Annis Lambert, a former newspaper gal, Lois Barnett who
labored long hours on The Franklin, and the aforementioned Miss
Minner. The new pledges were honored with an initiation dinner
where lane Day, director of women's activities for the Indianapolis
radio station WIBC, was guest speaker. Faculty guests, along
with sponsor, Mrs. Margaret S. Moore, ,were Dean Margaret
Powell and Miss Pauline White. 1
' The second semester found Theta Sigs aglow with enthusi-
asm for their mammoth money-making project, the famous Donkey
Basketball Game.. Sides ached for days from the antics of riding
teams which included the Barracks Boys, members of Pied Type,
the Sigs, and the Phi Delts. The proceeds were used for the Worthy
purposes of paying convention delegates expenses, bringing the
chapter out of the red, and the establishment of a scholarship
fund. The year closed with the completion of plans for the Matrix
Table, a traditional affair including a banquet and a special
speaker, esteemed in the journalistic World.
Tl-IETA ALP!-IA PI-II
It is always a gala evening when members of Theta Alpha
Phi, national dramatics honorary, meet for a discussion of toot-
lights, flats and other play problems. The organization num-
bered among its members this year several veterans who had
returned as well as the old guard. The followers of Thespis
met usually in Professor I. Daniel Kocher's tiny but well-ap-
pointed home next to the Mudrichs', sipped fruit punch or
munched candy and made good talk along with executive
decisions about dramatics "on campus." Only those who have
distinguished themselves in acting, directing or production lines
are entitled to wear the jeweled laughing mask of gold with
the Greek letters on it. Requirements were upped considerably
this year, for the increased enrollment of Franklin College
brought forth a greater interest in dramaticsp and Theta Alpha
Phi is necessarily a selective group. Members of thehonorary
assisted Professor Kocher with Wigs and Cues, all campus
plays and directed and produced the three one-act plays.
Spring tapping services were planned tor those voted on by
Theta Alpha Phi as worthy to be members. Officers were
Phil Vandivier, president: Betty Catherine Mills, vice-president,
and Ginny Smith, secretary-treasurer.

Sole claimant to the honor of being named
Alpha, Lee Clendenning and his grades did
us all proud. Formerly cr second lieutenant
for Uncle Sam, he was chosen to represent
Franklin in Who's Who in American Col-
leges and Universities this year. Announce-
ment of his membership in the honorary
was made, appropriately enough, on his
birthday. A graduating senior, a member
of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, a ministe-
rial student, and a husband and father, he
is typical ot the new era, the veteran's era,
When a committee composed ot Drs. Spencer, Benning-
hoff, Heath, Powell, Mullendore, Hendricks, Misses Roe, Aq-
new, Sparling, Mrs. Gallant, and Mr. Iacobs agree that a
student is Worthy of membership in Alpha, you know he's
good. For each of these faculty members is active in Alpha
and must approve prospective student members of this, the
highest scholastic honor society on campus.
Only one sixth of the graduating class is eligible for
recognition in Alpha. Because of the high requirements, this
quota is seldom filled and thus graduates, by merit of their
success in some special field, may earn the right to become
an Alpha member in later life. The little gold Watch key,
emblem oi Alpha, may be presented to a senior student in
the fall of his senior year, at the beginning of the second
semester, or at graduation.
"An incentive for students to get the best results from
their college experience.
"A means ot compensation to students for what they
have already achieved.
"A standard of measurement for students comparable
to other recognized scholastic and service organizations.
"A recommendation of successful students to the busi-
The annual publication, "Who's Who In American Col-
leges and Universities," serves these functions admirably.
To have his name included in this volume is the appropriate
climax ot a student's career, summing up all the other hon-
ors, scholastic or social, that he has attained. At Franklin a
committee of faculty and administration members meets
once each year to select local students whom they deem
worthy of this honor.
On the basis of character
scholarship, leadership in extra

On iour occasions this year, the campus was abuzz with
coronation conversation. The campus beauties, always a fa-
vorite subject with the fellas, provoked even more discussions
than usual. Titles hung precariously at times as one campus
faction shook its fist at the other faction over the ballot box.
But by crowning time differences were forgotten and everyone
joined in the applause for the current throne occupant and her
Mrs. Charles Pratt, the former Phyllis Moore
of Pi Beta Phi, kept up the morale of her over-
seas Sig husband by being named Homecom-
ing Queen. She was crowned atop the regal
float, decorated by the sophomore class, be-
tween halves of the Franklin-Hanover game.
Her attendants were Ann Murphy of Tri Delta
and Barbara Kyle, also ot' Pi Beta Phi.

During the first halt of the evening, quests
at the Blue Key-sponsored KeeCoNut Grove
Dance could hardly keep their minds on their
dancing. The biq question was: "Who's to be
queen?" At last, Rick broke the suspense and
cheers accompanied Ioan Roler to the throne.
Immediately after the crowning Ioan used her
royal sceptre to tap new Blue Key Members.
Lovely Doris Nelp, a member
, of Pi Beta Phi sorority, was se-
lected by the men of the campus
to be the Iunior Prom Queen.
Besides occupying the Iunior
seat of honor, she tapped fresh-
men and sophomore men
chosen by Blue Key of Lancers.
Her attendents were Sue Burk-
low, Z e t a Tau Alpha: Ruth
Louden, Delta Zeta: Lillian An-
derson, Delta Delta Delta, and
Marjorie McKinney, Indepen-
Queen For A Day was petite,
blond Ina Stanfill of Zeta Tau
Alpha who reigned at the tradi-
tional May Day festivities on
the West campus. Chosen in a
student election by the men of
the campus, her court was com-
prised tof Virginia Smith, Mary
Lu Bergdoll, Crystal Fox, and
Maxine Smith, also members of
Zeta Tau Alpha. The royal en-
tourage was escorted to the
dats by members of Blue Key.
IACK FOSTER 0 When lack came to Franklin from Anderson
he intended to stay only a year, but managed to get so in-
terested in activities that we couldn't let him go. Teaming with
B. C., he created Franklin's most memorable yell duo. Iack-of-
all-trades, he is a champion on roller skates, a professional
dancer, an actor, and even took a turn at directing a one-act
play. With a major in English, he became known as "Profes-
sor" to the Franklin High students. Add to all this his president's
position in Student Council and you have a truly outstanding
BETTY CATHERINE MILLS O Who managed to have her ir-
replaceable thumb in every pie? Who went gaily through col-
lege, spilling talent Without seeming to notice? B, C. of course.
She started out with yell leading, octet, and Wigs and Cues,
and has worked right up to membership in Laurels, Theta Sigma
Phi, Theta Alpha Phi, and Gold Quill, to name a few. Her jour-
nalistic streak has already been discovered by Mademoiselle,
whom she represents at Franklin. As president of Delta Delta
Delta and Pan Hellenic Council, she has been active all over
the place. Our indispensible B. C.l
HAROLD RICHTER 0 Looking lor Ric? You might try the
science lab. He began working for his Chemistry major before
the war when he was president oi Science Club. After a two-
year interruption while he was in the Medical Corps, he came
back to resume his work. This preparation all leads to an ulti-
mate career in Chemical Research. Ric joined Wigs and Cues
because he thought dramatics. would be fun, and it led to his
membership in Theta Alpha Phi where he has done both acting
and directing. A real honor student, he has served as president
of Blue Key his senior year.
IEROLYN' HARRISON 0 Here's one person who proves the
theory that Canteen excursions improve the mind. And the
proof-her membership in Laurels, Gold Ouill, and Theta Sigma
Phi. Far be it from lerry to adhere to things strictly scholastic,
however. She stars in athletics too, at everything from long
shots on the basketball floor to a wicked ping-pong serve. Any
time excitement pops up, Ierry is on hand with her camera.
Undeniably outstanding, Jerry held the reins of Delta Zeta her
senior year. She has been a genuine leader, a conscientious
supporter, and a prominent personality.
RICHARD CUMMINS I Usually sports stars are expected to
slip through college on their athletic laurels, but here's the ex-
ception. Dick not only was prominent on the gridiron and
basketball floor, where he served several times as captain, but
also merited membership in Lancers and, later, Blue Key. He
has served as president of Phi Delta Theta. F Men's Club, and
Inter-Fraternity Council. Technically a Biology major, in spite of
the athletic interest, he did his student teaching at Franklin
High. Recognized in Who's Who, it was only natural that he
should be elected also as an outstanding senior.
BARBARA EASTEHDAY 0 Bobbie is one of those hard-to-find
combinations ol beauty, brains, and talent. Her charm and
personality gave her the crown as Prom Queen in 1946. Mem-
bership in Gold Quill, of which she is president, and Laurels
verify her scholastic attainments. Music is her talent field. There
never could be a good entertainment without Bobbie and her
accordion, ready to play anything from old favorites to the
latest jazz. Golden-voiced as well as instrumental, she is one
of the few girls to be a tour-year member of the octet.

Social organizations fulfill a definite
need among Franklin College students
In the fraternity houses and the tastefully
furnished rooms in the dormitory, they
relax and have chin tests, play bridge
and read the mail and papers from home
They learn co-operation and generosity
by lending iormals and tux shirts and
assisting each other with the many little
intricacies of every-day college lite. This
is true of both Independent organizations
as well as Inter-Fraternity and Pan-Hel
lenic ones. Fraternal organizations at
Franklin College are the closest substitute
for thefamily group: the members of our
groups are our brothers and our sisters
They are a semblance ot 'home in our
busy and study-harried lives.

SIGMA ALPI-IA EPSII. N
Ever since 1892, the boys who have lived in the big
white Sig house on the corner of Edwards and Jefferson
have played an important role in contributing to the
varied social activities and functions of Franklin College.
The men who carried on the traditions of S.A.E. during
the school year l946-47 have proved no exceptions to this
rule. Under the leadership of lim Williams, who recently
succeeded Philip Vandivier, and with many returning
servicemen to swell its ranks, the fraternity now boasts
the fine total of 99 men.
Along the social front especially have the Sigs proved
active. Beginning with an all-campus smoker, the social
calendar has included a Mother-and-Son Spread, a picnic.
and several dances, outstanding of which was the annual
formal dance held at the Antlers Hotel in Indianapolis.
With six men on the varsity basketball team and a
like number on the football squad, the Sigs of 1947 were
known as a "sports-minded" outfit. One member, lohn
Lewis, now holds the all-time record at Franklin for points
scored in a single basketball game, as Well as the all-
time scoring record for seasonal play.

Once again Phi Delts, instead oi coeds as in the
War years, made things hum lsometimes roarl at
the corner oi Henry cmd Monroe- And once again
the Phi Deli shield labeled a student as an actual
or potential campus "Wheel."
Conversation in the Phi Deli house usually cen-
tered around such momentous subiects as the
T.G.I.F. club, pledge parades around the dorm, Hal-
lie Hamilton's jokes, Fred White's drums, president
Dick Cummins' athletic r e c o r d , George Hamil1's
crooning, who would be next to put his pin out,
politics, or how to get the Sig cannon.
If they weren't guzzing or studying in spare time,
the Phi Delts were probably working on one of the
features of their busy social calendar. It could have
been open house, the pledge dance of October, the
first Christmas dinner-dance since pre-War days, one
of the two mothers' spreads, the pin dinner, the all-
campus smoker, the state-Wide Founders' Day cele-
bration, one of the serenades, or the spring rush
dance. These activities were directed first by Cum-
mins, and after second semester elections, by The
Red Head, Keith Sample.
PHI DELTA Tl-IIETA
The Kappa Delts seemed to find it surprisingly simple to
get back into the swing ot things after being deactivated on
campus during the war. Prexie DeLos Lonzo, a pre-War active
himself, played a maior role in re-establishing the chapter.
Indeed, Lonzo and his "twenty-five hand-picked pledges," as
he proudly described them, were constantly making campus
news-what with gum-drop races, running the mail, and "Ac-
tivities Week." '
To the K.D.B.s goes the distinction of opening this year's
fraternity social calendar, Their open house followed by min-
utes the dormitory open house at the end of rush week. ln
December, the pledges entertained with the "Holly Hop." Tux
were donned for the big formal at the Hotel Severin in March
and again in a couple of Weeks for State Day.
Early, Lonzo, and Erbaugh rated by being among the first
occupants ot the G-.l. barracks. Loomis also was listed in the
married ranks but preferred his own little apartment.
Big Iohn Drubert starred in both football and basketball.
Kehoe's name was mentioned frequently in the football columns
as were those of Bennett and Wamsley in basketball. Buddy
Keller was equally active in sports though he confined his
exertions to leading yells for the teams. '

LAMBDA CI-ll ALP!-IA
Being the youngest of the four social fraternities on the
campus, Lambda Chi Alpha was quite proud of the fact that
it sported its first legacy this year, Tom Bush. The headquar-
ters of the Lambda Chi fellows still remained at the ABC House
with Aunt Bertie, and the number "BQ-W" was kept plenty busy
all year as these purple, green, and gold boys found them-
selves well represented in all the current campus activities.
After the ballots had been cleared away, L.C.A. had cap-
tured three coveted positions on. the Student Council executive
board in the personages of Richter, Williams, and Davidson.
Prexy Don Williams also took over the business end of the
Almanack, as well as serving as president of Gavel and Ros-
trum. Richter guided Blue Key and, along with Williams, co-
directed a one-act play in Theta Alpha Phi. Davidson was
elected secretary of the "F" Men, and figured quite promi-
nenlly, as did Hickman, on the gridiron. McClain was the
representative on the basketball court. Barlow swung the
gavel in the Senior Class, as Rodgers did in Delta Alpha
Theta. Clendenning was the lone senior to be chosen for
Alpha the first semester, as he led the group in again pulling
down the highest scholastic average. Deer, Brock, and Hackett
were selected for the Science Club, as were Barlow and Wil-
liams for Pi Kappa Delta. Clendenning and Richter were
awarded positions on the Who's Who register, and six of the
group were in the ranks of Blue Key.
Smokers, dorm se-renades, Lancervactivities, intra-mural
sports, glee club and choir rehearsals, and planning for the
gala Spring Dinner-Dance in Indianapolis falong with dates,
studies, and datesl put the finishing touches on making this
year a well-rounded busy one for Lambda Chi.
The report of "Best dance band ever heard on this campus!" came
back following the memorable F.l.M. George Washington semi-formal
which was held in the City Building. Lucky persons who attended the
dance received clever red, white and blue dance programs and lovely
gardenia corsages as favors. The gardenias lay in their cellophane
wrappings atop a mirrored table which was bathed in a spotlight.
The Franklin Independent Men's organization was first established
on the campus in 1935, largely through the efforts of the Men's Co-opera-
tive House, founded in 1931. Throughout the war it was inactive to a
great degree, but with the fall semester it functioned for the first time
since 1942, endeavoring to bring about a co-operative spirit and a true
fraternal attitude among its members. The first meeting, held Septem-
ber l4, elected as president, Louis Haynes: vice-president, Earl Chris-
tian: secretary, lack Cravensg and treasurer, Tom Hathaway. Scarcely
more than a month later, the fellows sponsored their first social function,
an informal dance at the house. Other activities included open house
and various and sundry informal parties. In the spring, lack Cravens
exchanged his secretary's notebook for the title of president and Ronald
Peffley, George Kent, and Burleson McKenzie were named vice-presi-
dent, secretary, and treasurer.
Their housemother was Mrs. Nellie Bridges and their faculty spon-
sor Was Professor George W. Maynard.

The Independent Women were in the thick of things with one of
the largest groups in many a year. Biggest thrill of all was when
they received their new pins which were designed with crown-set
pearls and small block letters of I.W.
Active Betty Mitchell was captain ot sound for the dormitory
this year. The dulcet tones of her talented Xylophone playing
gathered a crowd outside in the lobby every time she felt musical.
Then what would she do alter such a mellow evening, but go up-
stairs after lights flashed and everyone was snoozing, and ring the .
fire belll llt was all rightg she was supposed to do it.l
Memorable occasions for the l.W.'s during the two semesters
were the fall picnic, the Halloween hayride, the Christmas spread,
the lete for unaffiliated girls on campus and the annual musical tea
which was attended by the whole dorm.
The I.W. rooms adjacent to the lobby were filled with music
and laughter all year, especially on Sunday night when the gals
and their dates collected there for group vocalizing-serious and
crazy-like-with lots ot the Spike Jones idea thrown in. And every-
body was thrilled when LaVera Maile lthat's Skipperl took Bennie

The reins of the Delta Delta Delta surrey this year were in

initiated. Other pansy, pine, and pearl gals who worked to
make the year an "l'll-always-remember" one included Ioy

as social chairman: and Marilyn Force, Who brought glory to
herself and her sisters by taking first place in the campus
Eager to make a success ot their first campus venture, Tri
Delt pledges Worked ferociously on their dance, the Snow Ball
held in November: and the Whole chapter spruced up in their
best bib and tucker for the formal dinner dance at the Hotel
Washington in March.
Proving they could Work for the benefit of others and have
a good time doing it, Tri Deltas Went all-out to put on a carnival
in order to raise money for their national scholarship fund.
Another star on the Tri Delt calendar was the State Day
luncheon and formal dance at the Hotel Lincoln, and they all
shed a tear over the tact that their large president's pin had to
be passed on to the Butler chapter.
Delta girls adopted several "brothers" throughout the year
when their sisters linked their badges to fraternity pins and
Ann Murphy became Mrs. Iohn Pace. Tri Delts were Well
represented in dramatics, forensics, girls' athletics, music, cmd
journalism. It is even rumored that one of them almost became
a member of "F" Men's Club!

ZETA TAU ALPHA
Zeta Tau Alpha, youngest women's organization, had the
largest membership this year, forty-two, with two more waiting to
pledge next fall. Their rooms were completely redecorated before
rush week. Opening the formal season, the traditional Christmas din-
ner-dance was held in the Marott Hotel in Indianapolis, the first
affair of the year to be held in the city. The huge Christmas tree,
aglow before a mirrored background, was laden with candy canes,
one of the favors of the dance, and glittering ornamentsp Buddy
Keller, a roly-poly Santa, distributed appropriate gifts.
Virginia Smith, who turned over the president's gavel to Mary
Lu Bergdoll at mid-year, became the fiancee of Sigma Nu and
P.l.M. prexy, lack Cravens: and Io Smith resigned as college news
bureau head to become vice-president of Theta Sigma Phi, be Min-
ner's copy editor for the Almanack, and best of all-accept a
diamond from Phi Delt Cort Kegley. Other pinned and engaged
girls were May Queen Ina Stanfill, Lois lones, Marian Mclntyre,
Sue Burklow, the two Deers, Dottie and Peggy, Hank Schornick,
Katy I. Green, Phyllis Ester, and Wilma Iackson, who set graduation
day for her marriage to Dan Barlow, a former president of Lambda
Chi Alpha. Dotty Smith came back to school as Mrs. Don Coslett,
and Crystal Fox was elected president of House Council, serving
also on Student Council.
Honors garnered during the year were: having an all-Zeta May
Queen and Court, the first serenade of the year, winning the volley-
ball cup for the third time which gave permanent possession, and
having pledge Ioan Roler chosen as Keeconut Grove Queen at the
first post-war Blue Key dance.

Injuries in the early part of the season cost
Franklin College its most successful season in
history. The Tillotson-coached squad ended the
campaign with a four and tour won and lost
record, for the best football record since 1931,
but was forced to cop the last three games on
its schedule to gain the even break.
Back from the 1945 team were Dallas Hohn-
streiter, Dick Cummins, Don Coslett and Eddie
Byrne. Hohnstreiter played tackle: Cummins,
halfback, Coslett, end or center, and Byrne,
However, Coach Til1otson's prospects were
not limited to returning lettermen from the 1945
season only. Back on the campus were Her-
man Moyer, end: Bill Brasaernle, guard: Bill
Dunker and Carl Blessing, centers: Hallie
Hamilton, lack Davidson and Paul Dunker, half-
backs, Iirn Guinnup and Iohn lvIcKain, quarter-
backs: and lim Early, tackle.
Fourth Row: Baer, Stoddard
Farkus, Harlor, Fi nter
Bogie, Beatty, Wolfe, Cos
lett, W. Green.
All returning men, nevertheless, had to put up 'a
battle for their positions. Franklin, like most schools,
was gifted with more freshmen talent than the coach
would dare dream of in normal times. Bill Wolfe,
Iohn Drubert, Norman Bogie, lack Beatty, Ioe Gallant,
Dave Ditmars, Iohn Auld, Bob "Tiny" Shollenberger,
Dick McQuinn, Bob Summers, and a, host of others
were destined to give battle to the lettermen. F
Only one player refused to play ball' with the
Grizzlies and that was Lady Luck. Indiana Central
was the first opponent and bowed to the Franklin
eleven without much argument. Ioe Gallant spent the
evening proving that he had not' lost they talent that
made him all-state halfback in ,M,aine's high school
Lady Luck took over the next encounter, however,
and handed Franklin a crushing defeat The defeat
lay not so much in the score but in the injuries of two
stars, Gallant and Guinnup, which kept them out of
the lineup the remainder of the season. ,
THE FIRST HALF WAS ROUGH
Franklin-19: 'Indiana Central-U
In the first night game ever played at Franklin,
Davidson scored twice and Moyer once and Gal-
lant was a constant threat.
The 88 degree temperature was no hotter than the
Little Giants' football playing that day. Moyer did
the honors for our side.

off tackle until Tuterow got in the game. Wolf
took a long pass from Davidson to score for Frank-
Even Homecoming couldn't break the Grizzlies'
luck as the Panthers hulled their way through the
mud for o pair of touchdowns and the win.
BUT WE CAME OUT EVEN
Although within scoring distance several times,
Franklin failed to reach pay dirt and the Quakers
copped the encounter.
Big Don Ford took a liking to the mud and bulled
his way for a pair of touchdowns with Iohn Mc-
Kain and Cummins adding one each.
Tuterow scored both Franklin touchdowns and,
along with ten other guys who did not know that
they were not supposed to win, stood off the
Franklin-12: Rose Poly--0
Rain and mud greeted Franklin in the closing
game with Rose Poly, but the mud just brought
out Davidson's running ability as he tallied twice
to give Franklin its win.

The injury trail continued in the next game with
Defiance when Powers, Bill Dunker, and Moyer were
helped from the field. Powers was out for the season
but Dunker and Moyer came back to play in the last
The Defiance game was not all gloom, however.
Bill Tuterow, who had been out since the start of the
season with a rib iniury, returned to the team and
played a bang4up game at end. Although he had a
couple of ribs broken in that game, Brasaemle just
stuck on a few pieces of tape and played in every
During the season Franklin outscored its opponents
82-65. Davidson was the mainstay in the scoring col-
umn with four touchdowns to his credit. Tuterow,
Moyer, and Ford each scored twice, while Cummins,
McKain, and Wolf crossed the double stripe once each.

lieves that the thirty-five men now working out daily
promise big things to come in Pranklin's newest sport.
The mile relay, 100 yard dash, mile run, pole vault,
high jump, and shot put are included in the fifteen
track and field events to be featured. There are seven
meets scheduled for Franklirfs thinlyclads th r o u g h
April and May. ln addition, the locals have been in-
vited to participate in the Little State track- meet to be
held the last of May.
After a five year lay-off, many former baseball let-
termen are back with high hopes of a good season.
There are also several promising candidates from the
new' student ranks and, as the yearbook goes to press,
it is difficult to determine just what nine will trot out
on the diamond opening day. Coach Tillotson is now
in the process of choosing and a formidable team is
Golf, Franklin's third spring sport, will have two
members of its 1941 championship team back in ac-

nup, who will be acting coach, and Bob Tillotson.

In Interfratermty Councils first year of in-
tramural activity since l942-43, the Siqs seem
to be edging away from the Kappa Delts in
the race for the big trophy, which the KDR
boys won the last year out. As the Almanack
deadline approaches, these two organizations
are in a two-team race, and the other three are
hunched seemingly in the distance with the
Phi Delis in third place.
The Fraternity League opened the season
last fall with softball which continued along
the pre-war line with the Kappa Delis winning
as they had the last half decade of pre-war
days. They complete the season undefeated,
after some hard pressure from the Sigs in two
one-run decisions. Wamsley chucked five no-

The strength of Sigma Alpha Epsilon became
more apparent as the year progressed. ln a
close race, they nosed out the Independent
Ivlen to replace the Kappa Dells as title-holders.
In the first halt' race the Slgs and Independents
tied, the SAES winning the playoff. In the sec'

were declared champion.
Mother Lee's boys showed no inclination to-

"The Friendly Campus"
Unlike old times, a student couldn't
call everyone he met on campus by
name this year. Yet Franklin's motto,
"The Friendly Campus," prevailed as
the familiar "Hi ya" echoed along the
walks and through the halls.
Per usual the freshmen became ac-
quainted with the faculty and each
other at the traditional freshmen 'picnic
and president's tea. And of cour se
"rush Week" brought them in Contact
with the upperclassmen "for better or
for Worse." Student Council, bless its
unconstitutional heart, performed its
liaison duties With marked successg
and its all-school dances and parties
did wonders in establishing the college
motto in spirit as Well as in name.
lt's been a great year for making new
friendships, renewing old o n e s , and
even finding romance on "the friendly

The president of our college was an important
topic of student conversation huddles. Affection-
ately known to us as "PreXy," Dr. 'William Gear
Spencer is our spokesman throughout the state
of Indiana. His many miles of travel in our in-
terests were cut short when he sustained injuries
in a motor crash near Fort Wayne, Indiana, in the
early winter. He was hospitalized in Fort Wayne
for a time, later being moved to the Methodist Hos-
pital in Indianapolis. Eventually he was brought
to his home in Franklin, but it was far into the
spring before he could resume some of his activi-
ties. Even so, Dr. Spencer made plans to embark
on his fifteenth year as president of Franklin
One of Franklin's faithfuls, Professor Robert E.
Kent has a schedule as full as that of a student
taking twenty hours. In addition to teaching phi-
losophy, he was appointed this year to the post
of Academic Dean of the college. Perhaps it is
the twinkle in his eye that keeps the visitors com-
ing, 'for come they do. There seems always to be
a conference or just a friendly discussion going
on in his spacious office. Campus politics is a
moot subject with the Dean but somehow prob-
lems seem to solve themselves after they have
been hashed out with Dean Kent.
Whenever a coed feels low
or wants to "talk things over"
she always seems to find her
way sooner or later to the
office of Dean Margaret Pow-
lack-of-all-trades is Dean of
Men Charles R. Cochran.
Whether it's advising a vet,
furnishing an annex or secur-
ing a recreation building he

The martyrs of the campus Were, as per usual, the faculty.
How they stood us we will never comprehend but their patience
and fortitude was unending. Of course there couldn't be an
increase in enrollment without an increase in faculty and some
of the new members were not so long out of the college ranks
themselves. ln fact, several former Franklin students, among
them Miss Sparling and Mrs. Gallant, found themselves teach-
ing former classmates who had been set back by the War.
Other new faces were those of Betty Lambert Schrepferman
who managed her gym classes and student husband despite
a broken leg, Mrs. Payne, Drs. Hendricks and Maynard, Profs.

by Mrs. Chester Overstreet, and -Prof, Mayhew who was married and came to

Miss Agnew graded. themes and kept order in the Wornen's Residence Hall and
Harvey C. lacobs traded in that battered old Underwood he pumped for so
,manyyears for a new Remington and used his leisure hours trying to persuade
young Phil, class oi 1966, to say "Daddy." And business, as usual, went mer-
rily on in Prof. Belcker's department of philology.
Mr. Deputy retired and Verne Woodworth took over as superintendent of
maintenance. He was assisted by Donnell Mathena, Iohn Davis, William Keith
and Morris McTarsney. In charge of dorm and annex maintenance were Miss
Opal Anderson, Miss Laura Clark, Miss Edna Magill and Mrs. Electa Willey.

We are always being told that no one is
indispensable but each year, as graduation
approaches, both faculty and underclassmen
Wonder how the school can get along without
the students who have become such an in-
tegral part of the campus during their four
years here. Especially does this seem true of
the class ot 1947 because its members have
been the nucleus of the compact, somewhat re-
mote, unit of campus life existing during the
stress of the war years.

Yet graduation in Iune of 1947 will be one of the happiest
occasions the college has ever witnessed. Caps and gowns will
be donned at last by many veterans who had feared that they
would never have another chance to earn this privilege. And
several wives and children will be on hand to watch their favorite
graduate turn his tassel. But all attention will not be focused on
the men tor the Women who remained on campus to till so capably
the shoes of their fighting classmates will earn the hearty applause
