GEORGE WILLIAMS COLLEGE 1956 IN MEMORIUM GUY L. SCHUYTEMA, Dean of Students Friend, advisor, fellow faculty member, loyol worker, ond true Christian. His kind¬ ness, humility, sincerity, ond devotion to task will ever be remembered. His loyol ond sacrificial service to George Williams Col¬ lege and the things it stands for will live in the hearts of those who knew him and loved him. Once upon a time, in a somber laboratory, a woeful white rat was held prisoner in a strong, wire cage. The rat had been named for a famous Indian chieftain, a courageous mascot of George Williams College in the good old days, and on his head he wore the bon¬ net of the Al I-Col lege Tri be. Heap-Big-Cheese-Hunter’s adventurous spirit fretted at his narrow confines and deplored the limited range of hi s vi sion. His only excitement came with the chattering stud¬ ents and the ringing of bells. All too soon the bells ran g and the noisy stu dents I eft him alone in his wiry cage. Where did they go ' ? If he could only follow those animated people! Then, one day Heap-Big-Cheese-Hunter noticed that his cage was unlatched. This was his big chance! He threw himself against the door, dropped to the floor, and scur¬ ried from the lab, into a tiny room nearby. Arthur H Steinhaus, Professor of Physiology, Dean of the College, and Director of the Division of Health and Physical Education; John R. McCurdy, President; Channing M. Briggs, Associate Professor of Sociol¬ ogy and Group Work, and Director of the Division of Group Work and Recreation. FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATION Heap-Big-Cheese-Hunter climbed up on a desk, looked around and right in front of him were some very distinguished persons! He turned and ran down a flight of stairs. At every turn he met other notable persons. 5 Top to Bottom: Hugh D. Allen, Director of Col lege Comp HoroldW. Porner, Business Manager and Director of Admissions Harmon H.

For¬ mal inductions were held and the Fraternity im¬ mediately held formal elections. The members of KPD and the elected officers are as follows: John Goodwin, President, George Mathis, Vice President, David Miller, Secretary, Ronald Goetsch, Treasurer, Colin Campbell, IFC Rep¬ resentative, Dr. Karl Zerfoss, Facul ty Advi sor. For those who are not familiar with Kappa Rho Delta, it is interesting to note that they are the youngest fraternity on the campus, having been started in 1949. The purpose of this fraternity is to provide its members with a meansof satisfying their athletic and social needs, which are best met through cooperative self-expression and united effort, to furnish the opportunity for close fellowship a- mong its members, to encourage members to de¬ velop brighter cultural values for our mutual betterment, and to render service to others.

George Williams College faced the 1955-56 season with an inexperienced ball team, and a new coach, Jack Cl aypoole. The Indians won their first two starts before losing a close gome to LaCrange Junior College, 66-59, in the home opener. The GWC cagers, led by Captain Jim Davis, the team’s top scorer, re¬ bounded from defeat to beat the University of III inoi s Professional College, 87-62. The Indians dropped both their games with the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois Navy Pier and ended the season with a record of six wins and eight losses, having taken an overtime victory at the hands of the U. of I. Professional College and beating Roosevelt University and North Chicago Teacher’s College.
