SANFORD CALVIN YODER, B. A., LL. B.
Iowa State University, Hamilton College of Law
"This is a day when our social and political organizations are
shaken to their foundations. Many of the things that in the past en-
gaged the attention and challenged the admiration of men have been
entirely swept away or their value greatly reduced. This was possible
only because they were material and perishable. In making adjustments
to meet the situation, men must needs seek a new anchorage and new
objects and ideals upon which to bestow their devotions and lavish
their affections. This brings to all Christian men and women the op-
portunity of restating in terms of our present need the things that
abide. Confidence in a sovereign God and the fount of a living faith
lends an enduring hope that will span the valleys of depression and
dissipate the gloom of disappointment through which those whose hearts
are set on earthly things must periodically pass. To build such a hope
into life and character, together with a will to hand it on to others, is
the opportunity and should be the purpose of every Christian College.
To this cause our Alma Mater is dedicated and with this purpose she
charges her sons and daughters as they leave her portals to enter upon
life's activities in the fields of usefulness wherein their Maker calls them

Acting Dean, Head of the Bible Department
"I have a deep conviction that Goshen College has an unusual
place to fill in the educational world and that she cannot, therefore, be
classified as 'just one of the small colleges of the United Statesf We
are definitely committed at Goshen to a program of Christian education
with all the richness and depth which that term includes. We are
fundamentally out of sympathy with a secularized education and the
type of living which it tends to produce. The life which we seek to
foster at Goshen College is one which is characterized by Christian
spirituality. which is the fruit of the power of the indwelling Spirit of
God. which is motivated by the ethical insight of Iesus Christ, and
which has as its world-view a philosophy based upon the Christian
revelation. That the currents of modern life seem at times to counter
such a program is of little concern to us except to deepen the sense of
challenge with which the Christian has always faced the world. We
will not surrender our ideals in times like these: we will carry on

Uur college life is finished. The last day of our seniorhood has come. Before
we leave, however, let us look back over the four years just passed. Only nine of
the thirty-three members of our present class were also members of that Freshman
Class of sixty-eight men and women in September, 1928. As Sophomores we num-
bered forty, but as Iuniors we were reduced to twenty-seven members, only eight of
whom were women, The lures of Seniorhood, however, brought us recruits so that
we have more graduates than the classes just preceding.
Our president, Niemann Brunk, having served us ably throughout the four years.
has made possible a continuity of purposes and interests which would have been im-
possible otherwise, especially since we were unfortunate in losing our sponsor several
times. Professor Cressman, during our first two years, gave efficient assistance, being
especially remembered as our debate coach, When he was unable to return we chose
Professor Samuel Yoder, whose recent career as a student made him a sympathetic
advisor, Because of Professor Yoder's absence, Professor Enss, whose geniality and
good will had won our admiration, was asked to finish the Senior year with us.
We have always been greatly interested in debate. Both interclass and inter--
collegiate debating have had our loyal support. Although success did not always
come our way, neither did failure characterize our efforts. Basket ball and other
athletics also claimed our support, at which we attained a reasonable amount of
Our class has been distinguished by its religious interests. Not only have we par-
ticipated in Y. P. C. A. work, Christian Worker's Band, Mission S. S., and had a
number of foreign volunteers for mission work, but we have had a number of minis-
ters of the Gospel in our group, three of which graduate with us, There has been a
definite interest in spiritual things and the events we will remember longest have been
of that nature.
As we look back we recall a number of other outstanding incidents which time
cannot erase: the memorable week when we Sophomore women won both the seasons
basket ball tournament and the debate: the attempted retaliation of the Freshmen
when we celebrated our victories: the end of the first six weeks of our Freshman
year: the night we won our first debate: the Seniors' sneak day when we were Iuniorsg
our own sneak day: our first Freshman party: when we sponsored a Freshman class
ourselves: the parties at Alta Housours home: our final parties, as Freshmen at Bon-
neville Mill, as Sophs at Rome City, and as luniors at Christiana Lake: the day we
received the emblems and actually became Seniors: when Nase, Beechy and Warstler
reenforced our basket ball squad: the Senior women's basket ball season: our class
reunions at Home-Coming: the cushion episode and our retaliation: our class break-
fast at Professor Bnss's home-memories come in an overwhelming flood.
The first four years of our existence as the Class of '32 have been interesting
and inspiring. Our experiences have made Goshen College our college in a vital way.
We have had our share of prominent figures on the campus, we have made our con-
tribution, and without regret we turn the duties, with the opportunities of the Senior
class, over to the class that follows. Our active life on the campus is at an end, yet
the Class of '32 lives on! It cannot die! As we give our service in other fields the
friendships and ideals which we gained here will go with us and be our guiding

Ho, hum! At last we are juniors. It just doesnt seem possible that two years
have gone since we arrived as Freshmen in September of '29, Weren't we a class!
Ninety new students to trouble everyone, including themselves. And what a time we
had getting onto the swing of things! The juniors were good to us and the first
party we had with their help gave us a good chance to get acquainted. Don't you
think we did a good job at choosing our motto: "Truth, Loyalty and Service?" And
our colors are much to be proud of, too,-purple and gold. james Steiner certainly
tackled a big job as our president, but he had just right to be proud when the men
carried off the basket ball championship and also the decision of the Sophomore-
Freshmen mens debate. After we were acquainted our l'lallowe'en party and
spring outings were as much fun as ninety Freshmen could make them.
At the beginning of our Sophomore year our number was decreased to nearly
half of what it had been. but that did not quench the class spirit. Glenwood
Schertz was elected president, and well he deserved to be for he represented our
class in the Intercollegiate Debates, besides leading the Sophomore debate team to
victory over the Freshman. And the basket ball! Even if we didn't get the champion-
ship the teams that came up against us realized that they had to fight. Of course,
we had our socialsl The steak was never better and l'm sure the suggestions at the
Valentine party were gladly taken. Yes, a few left and new ones came during the
year, but the ruling aim and spirit was always there.
Now we are part of the upper classmen,-in other words, juniors! From then
on dignity must take place of foolishness and a carefree spirit must bid farewell.
Our position as chaperon to the Freshmen was gravely taken and resulted in a party
near the dam, with our worthy president, Ross Gerber, as the leader. Some weeks
later we, the thirty-two members of the class, had an outing to get acquainted with
each other. It went off fine except for the unwelcome visitors, mosquitoes!
Our class was well represented in the intercollegiate debates, and we were justly
proud, even if the victories were not many. In basket ball the men gained second
place after a hard pull, and the women, aided by Sophomore women, tied with the
Seniors for the championship. Many responsible positions were held by the juniors
on the Y. P. C. A. Cabinet, on various staffs, and last but not least, half of the Men's
Chorus is composed of juniors. But our class record would be incomplete without the
banquet given for the Seniors, It was a small way in which to show our appreciation
to them for their helpfulness, and a renewed effort to establish ourselves worthy to
be called loyal juniors. Even if some of our group will not return we can still
heartily say, "l'lere's to the juniors!"

Sophomores? Why,--pardon me, Sir, but yes, that is what they call us.
Is there anything I can do for you? No sir, we aren't very important, just these
Sophomore silk worms you hear about. Our history? Now, that is quite a story
and, being just a silk worm, it is hard for me to think, but I believe I remember the
time when we all arrived. They had ordered quite a batch, fifty-six in all, as I re-
member it, and a wriggly bunch we were as we first crawled over the campus.
Being just baby worms we couldn't see very well so Professor Umble under-
took to raise and guide us. I-le had always been interested in the silk industry and
met his task with enthusiastic and modern measures. That first year we just grubbed
around. Maple Leaves became our main diet, but after six weeks of wild squirming
we met in a famous meetingg the "Diet of Worms" it was later called. On this
important occasion it was decided that we should adopt red and white carnations as
our own special delicacy, Accordingly, these were then added to our former diet of
Maple Leaves, and we grew full strong both bodily and intellectually. Our adven-
tures during that first year were many and varied, but so were we, and by the close of
the year they were calling us the Basket Ball Champions. No real riots were ever
laid at our doorz in fact, our big boss said that we were a most peaceful set of young
ones, and so we were.
Like true silk worms we crawled far and fast during our first summer, and, sad
to say, we did not all lind our way back, but we picked up others and when the roll
was again called this fall twenty-five were present to answer. We have grown a lot
since last year and our development has been rapid.
By the beginning of next year we will all be snugly asleep in the fine silk cocoons
which we have been working on all year. Now this may be a secret, so please do
not tell anyone, but we overheard our boss talking to one of the authorities, and they
are evidently expecting "our set" to produce the best silk Goshen College has ever
manufactured and of course they have a right to for we have among us debators,
athletes, musicians. and worms of literary ability. We were all thrilled at the news
and have been working hard ever since to fulfill their expectations.
There are not many of us this year but then is it not the great things that come
in small packages? Now please, sir, do not look worried. It has been great fun to
be Sophomores and though we may not be much to look at right now, just give us
time. At the close of two more years we expect to leave these silk cocoons behind
us and as beautiful and full-fledged Senior butterflies we shall try our wings in the
world. We are not afraid to try for our motto leads us ever onward: "Non Scholae

In the fall of the year nineteen hundred and thirty-one a valiant band of over
hfty young people settled in the vicinity of Goshen College. They came possessed
of the same spirit that motivated their ancestors, a century previously, to leave the
old country and to found new homes in the wilderness of Pennsylvania and the Middle
VVest. Their purpose, however, differed from that of their forefathers who sought
religious and economic freedom. They came, rather, in search of that mythical spring
whence flow the streams of knowledge and wisdom. That fount they found, and also
a staff of some twenty learned professors whose duty it was to serve the life-giving
lt may be that a few members of this band felt somewhat shy and timorous on
this first venture away from their respective abodes, but all fears speedily vanished
under the influence of the kind and cordial reception given them, for they found the
College already inhabited by other bands, each distinguished by its length of residence.
These aided them to become acquainted and to adapt themselves to their new sur-
roundings. With the assistance of several luniors they held their first party on the
evening of September l8 in the forest beside the Elkhart River. Here everyone en-
joyed himself playing games and eating delicious refreshments.
In October they assembled themselves in a body, and with the help of the lunior
president proceeded to organize. After electing the class leaders they chose for the
class colors Azure Blue and Amber, and for the class flower, the Sweet Pea. "Knowl-
edge is Powern became the class motto,
During the year this class proved its prowess by engaging in many friendly
combats upon the gymnasium floor. Both a boys' and a girls' basket ball team were
In wordy battles, too, the class won considerable renown. One debating team
was formed among the girls, which defeated the Sophomore team, and two teams
were formed among boys. Several of our boys served on the inter-collegiate debate
At the end of the first semester the members of this class submitted to a severe
test of their scholary accomplishments and acquitted themselves quite well. As the
school year draws to a close the class looks back upon its experiences with a feeling
of satisfaction although aspiring to achieve greater things next year.

The work of the Academy the past year has been largely college preparatory,
for the majority of the students are planning to enter college as soon as possible.
For those who can not continue their education in college, the Academy offers a good
opportunity to enjoy the Christian atmosphere of college life and culture.
During the past summer ten were enrolled in Academy courses. At present there
are seven seniors, three juniors and one sophomore, and three special students. Their
number being too small for effective literary work, the Academy students did not or-
ganize the Homerian Society. The inter-society council decided to invite them into
membership in the college societies: and as a result four joined the Adelphians, three
the Vesperians, and one the Avons. lt is the hope of the administration that the
Academy attendance may increase next year as the result of the large reduction in
tuition. -Olive Wyse.

The summer for 1931 extended from Iune 15 to August 15. In addition, this
year for the first time in recent years, a few rural school teachers took courses during
our spring term, which began on April 29.
Due to the general financial conditions at present the attendance was slightly
less than during the summer of 1930. although it was greater than during the summer
The registration for the spring term of six weeks was fourteen, while the regis-
tration for the summer term of nine weeks was sixty-two. The total, not counting
duplicates, was seventy-one. Of this total ten were academy students, leaving sixty-
one college students.
The work offered was of the same standard quality as work given during the
regular school year. Courses were given in Bible, biological sciences, physical science,
economics, education, English, History, mathematics, French, German, psychology.
and physical geographyf In addition, courses were given for high school students in
economics, English, and United States history.
The work of the spring term was given by our regular full-time teachers, except
that D. S. Gerig, M. A., of the Goshen High School, taught one course in Education,
and that President Yoder taught the course in physical geography. Six separate
courses were taught during this term.
During the summer session five full-time instructors were on the teaching staff,
with four others who were doing part-time work. In addition to those of the regular
faculty for the school year, Mr. 0. L. Walter, principal of the Goshen High School.
again taught courses in Education: and Ralph Myers, an instructor in the Concord
township high school of Elkhart County, and an alumnus of the College, taught sev-
eral academy courses.
During the summer term the largest classes were in English and History, where
the number of students enrolled ranged from five to sixteen. Sixteen separate courses
were offered in the college department with an average enrollment of seven students
in each class.
The summer session is able to care for the needs of a group of teachers who wish
to further advance their educational program during the months when their own
schools are not in session. Thus a group of students are helped by the school who
otherwise could not be reached at all.

The Bible School of Goshen College is intended to serve two purposes. First,
it supplies courses in the Bible to the regular college curriculum, and second, it fur-
nishes an independently organized two-year curriculum leading to a diploma in Bible.
Again this year, as in previous years, a very large proportion of all students enrolled
in the college took one or more courses in the Bible Department, although this year
there are no majors in Bible in the graduating class.
The second function of the Bible School: namely, that of furnishing an independ-
ently organized course in Bible and allied subjects for the purpose of preparing Chris-
tian workers for service in the church, was not operative during the current school
year. No students were enrolled in the Bible School proper. The lack of interest
in this course has led to a reconsideration of the function of the Bible School and
to new plans to make it fill a real place in the service of the church. Numbers of
Mennonite young people are attending Bible Schools elsewhere and taking just such
courses as Goshen College Bible School offers. They should be attending Goshen
Four years ago the Special Bible Term was reorganized as a six-year cycle of
courses, giving in all a full year of work in Bible. Experience has shown that the
cycle is too long and that very few students will be able to finish it. In View of this
fact, as well as for other reasons, the College has reorganized the Special Bible Term
into a three-year cycle of courses, each term running for eight weeks. By greater
concentration it will be possible to accomplish almost the same amount of work as
was accomplished formerly in six weeks. Next year, 1932-33, the last year of the
six-year cycle will be given, with a diploma awarded to all those who have taken the
five years of work. Plans are being made to enlarge the faculty for the Special Bible
Term, to enrich the curriculum, and reduce expenses. It is hoped that these improve-
ments will strengthen the Special Bible Term and increase the enrollment in the
The new plans for the Bible School call for enriching the curriculum, strengthen-
ing and enlarging the faculty, and reducing the cost of attendance. The Local Board
has voted to eliminate the tuition cost altogether by giving the entire course free. An
additional instructor has been added and additional courses will be offered, with an
entirely new organization of the two-year curriculum for the diploma. As soon as
possible a further enlargement of the school will take place. Details of the new
plans will be announced during the summer and an increase in the effectiveness of the
Bible School is confidently anticipated. There is a real need in the church for the
service which the school can render.

The Special Bible Term is one of the oldest departments of the program of the
Bible School ot Goshen College. It was begun in the earliest days of the Elkhart
Institute and has been conducted annually for almost thirty-five years. During this
long period of time a large number of the outstanding leaders and Bible instructors
in the Mennonite church have served on the faculty, and probably over a thousand
students have enrolled for the course, Not only has the Special Bible Term been of
direct benefit in Bible teaching, but it has also inspired many a student to go on in his
educational career, It has given a large number of students who could not attend a
longer term of school for various reasons, the only opportunity they have had to
get the benefit of systematic study and training in the Bible.
The enrollment for the current year was the lowest for several years, amounting
to twelve. Several special instructors assisted in the course, among them being D. D,
Miller, I. W. Royer, Ira S. Iohns, and Edwin Yoder, in addition to H. S. Bender,
S. A. Yoder, and W. E. Yoder ofthe regular college faculty. As usual the Ministers'
Week and Christian Life Conference, together with a Sunday School Superintenclents'
Day were arranged for at the close of the Special Bible Term. These meetings were
unusually well attended and much appreciated, They have become a permanent and
valuable part of Goshen College's program of service to the Church.

One of the prime essentials of holding the interest of the group in a certain phase
of activity is to have the group participate actively in its promotion. lf that activity
does not offer the means of expression and participation, interest will be at a low ebb.
We have many opportunities for expression in Christian activities on the campus in
our various group meetings. Many inspirational messages are enjoyed in which the
program of Christ for the church is emphasized. The student is fired with zeal and
enthusiasm to promote, advance, and propagate the Kingdom of God in the hearts of
men. But if this zeal and enthusiasm finds no suitable avenue of expression, the result
may be detrimental to the development of a well-rounded Christian Life in which all
its phases receive the proper emphasis,
Not only would this lack of a suitable avenue of expression be a hindrance to
wholesome Christian development, but it would also be a useless waste of zeal,
energy, and enthusiasm that might well be put to the task of bringing a positive benefit
to those who are within helping distance, and who are in need of the message we can
bring to them.
These are the factors which brought into existence the Mission Sunday Schools
on the North Side, and in East Goshen. There has been good interest in this Work
throughout the year, and there is much work to be done. Among the activities en-
gaged in are the distribution of Gospel literature, weekly visitation in homes, calling
on absentees, shut-ins, and parents of Sunday School children, and group singing in
homes of aged, and others who are unable to get away from home.
The work is seriously handicapped because of the lack of a suitable building in
which services could be conducted permanently. Because of the high rent, the build-
ing on the North Side had to be vacated recently. As yet no other suitable building
has been secured. Temporary arrangements have been made to transport those at-
tending at North Goshen to the East Goshen Sunday School, This causes a rather
congested condition there and is not very satisfactory.
We are hoping and praying that this problem will be satisfactorily solved, and
we believe that God will lead in the way that is best.
Through the liberal contributions of food and clothing by the College congrega-
tion, and other congregations nearby it was possible to give material assistance to
many homes. At Christmas twenty-five baskets were gratefully received by the homes
in North Goshen. Similar work was done in the other section. The opportunities
for Christian service are many. Many of these people are sadly in need of employ-
ment, they are desperately in need of food, but more than either of these factors, they
are in need of a saving knowledge of lesus Christ.

Goshen College has become interested in the so-called adult education movement.
For the last three years courses have been given for part time students who are other-
wise employed, either as teachers or in some other capacity. Three years ago the
work began in a very modest way, for there were only a few students, with but a
limited offering of courses from which to choose. Last year the interest increased,
more teachers participated in giving the courses, and a considerably larger number of
students took the work.
During the present school year the work has been made more attractive for
teachers by having some of the classes meet on Saturday forenoon. Classes met dur-
ing this year on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and on Saturday forenoon. Most
of the subjects offered were the regular three semester-hour courses. A few two-
hour courses were given. The evening classes met from 7:00 P. M. to 9:30 P, M.,
each class meeting only once per week. The student was permitted to take as many
courses as he had time to carry.
The following list indicates the variety of work from which the student was per-
mitted to choose: Types of English Literature 211-12: Teaching of History 409:
Teaching of English 409: Intermediate German 201-2: American History 201-2: Ele-
mentary French l01-2, Principles of Economics 301-2: Gospel of lohn 303: Still Life
Drawing and Water color 105-6: Analytic Geometry 201-2: and Birds 202. ln ad-
dition various commercial courses, not giving college credit met during several eve-
nings a week, such as bookkeeping, shorthand, and typewriting. The instructors par-
ticipating at some time during the year were: Guy F. Hershberger, Iohn S. Umble,
Lydia Shenk, Roland Yoder, Mrs. Amy E. Enss, S. W. Witmer, G. H. Enss, W. H.
Smith, A. L. Springer, Verna Enss, and D. A. Lehman.
The work of the six-week spring term began this year on April 27th. Fifteen
teachers whose school year was concluded, came for the work of this term, from
Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana. Most of these students are taking three courses,
giving six hours of credit. The work given for this period is as follows: The Family
403: Economic Geography 203: Clothing Selection and Construction 201: Physiology
and Hygiene 308: American History 202: and Child Literature lll. Instructors par-
ticipating in giving these courses, not previously mentioned are, Harold S, Bender,
Miss Fyrne Miller, and LI. Grant Weaver.
The total number of students listed as specials and evening students is 47. How-
ever the actual number is slightly larger since several who are taking the bachelors
degree either in Iune or August. 1932 were this year part time workers. These seniors
had previously done almost suflicient work to merit the degree. With the work they
could complete in this way during the year, plus the spring and summer terms, they
are able to graduate with this year's class.
If there is sufficient interest in work of this kind, the College hopes to serve
the teachers and others in the community, by continuing to offer such evening and
Saturday courses as will suit the needs of those whom the college can serve.

The Young Men's Christian Association is a division of the Young People's
Christian Association which is the largest as well as the strongest and most influential
organization on the campus. The students have come to look upon this Association
as the mother of many of its finest ideals and in no small measure of the college spirit
itself. The Y. M. C. A. is the division of the Y. P. C. A. having at heart the interests
of the men of the college.
The cardinal objective of the association is to bring every student into a genuine
Christian experience and to help every student definitely to find his place in God's
kingdom. To this end the association is continually and peculiarly adopting its pro-
gram. It sponsors regular weekly religious meetings to discuss and hear discussed by
Christian leaders of wisdom and experience problems and subjects of peculiar inter-
est to the student mind. The association also arranges for Bible and Mission study
courses. The association believes that the Christian life is not primarily one of hear-
ing and discussing but that it is essentially a witness, consequently, it provides op-
portunities not only for students to go out to churches in the several surrounding
states to aid in bringing the message, but also for definite witnessing for Christ in
several nearby mission stations,

"To know Christ and to make Him known" is the motto of the Y. W. C. A. of
Goshen College. To realize our motto we would remember and heed the words of the
Psalmist, "Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I
will be exalted in the earth" QPS. 46:lOj. "That we might know Him" we have pur-
posed in His strength to lead each girl to faith in God through Iesus Christ: to help
each one to form a more vital fellowship with Christ by means of Bible Study and
prayer: and to promote a deeper feeling of worship through the devotional and
prayer meetings. We would endeavor "To make Him Known" by promoting
throughout the college a positive Christian spiritp and presenting the challenge of the
worlds needs so that each girl will consecrate herself and her substance to Christ,
and His Cause.
Various committees working conjointly with the committees of the Y. M. C. A.
contribute to this end. The Y. W. attempts to go deep into the hearts and minds of
those on the campus and outside, and thus help find the way of making life richer
and fuller for each one. To help each one to be able to say with Paul, "For to me
to live is Christ"-that is our aim. -Alta M. Housour.

Perhaps one of the most important steps taken by the Intersociety Council since
its organization was taken this year when the Articles of Agreement between the four
literary societies were amended, making the Academy students eligible for membership
in these societies. Because there were only eight regular student members in the
Academy department this year, the I-Iomerian society was too small to efliciently carry
on literary work. The amendment states that all regular students of the Academy
shall be eligible for membership in their respective societies upon the same basis as
college students. This part of the Agreement is to remain effective until the Academy
literary society is able to function again.
No literary program was given at Home Coming this year as the Council had
previously proposed, but the two public programs by the Vesperians and Adelphians,
and Avons and Auroras were given during the latter part of the second semester.

All members of the various literary societies are automatically members of the
Students' Library Association, which is an organization with the express purpose of
building up the college library by contributing new books. These books are selected
from a list of suggested volumes by the Book Committee which is composed of a
representative from each of the literary societies and a faculty member who acts as
Chairman of the Committee. This year the Association added nearly ninety dollars
worth of select material to our shelves. Special recognition is due to our faculty di-
rector, Prof. D, A. Lehman, whose interest, experience and versatility are an especial
asset in the selection of proper books and in guiding the policies of the Association.

The Student Lecture Board is composed of the chairman, Prof. S. W. VVitmer,
three faculty members. and a representative from each literary society. This Board
selected such lecture numbers as appear to be most interesting, valuable, and profit-
able to the college community. The advertising of these numbers, the sale of tickets,
and the provision of ushers was in complete charge of the students. This year the
lecture course was again very interesting and well arranged.
The first lecture of the 1931-1932 course was given on October 9. Opie Read,
novelist and journalist, spoke to us on the subject: 'iHuman Nature." On November
6, Brayton Eddy, naturalist, humanized nature for us in his lecture, "The Personality
of Insects." During Home-Coming Week, November 27, Frederick M. Snyder,
journalist, gave his inspirational lecture, "The Lie About Tomorrow." The Welsh
Imperial Singers, already favorites with the college audience, under the direction of
R. Festyn Davies, came to us again january ll to render their splendid program of
chorus numbers and vocal solos. The final number of the course was an illustrated
lecture on the astounding story of Radium, told by Luther S. H. Gable, Ph. T., radi-
ologist and the lone surviver of a grcup of six chemical engineers who refined the first
radium in America.

During the year the Mennonite Historical Society has been quite active. Four
programs were presented. The first program consisted of an address by H. S. Bender
on "The Distribution of Mennonites Throughout the World." The second program
presented an address by O. O. Miller on "The Mennonite Colony in Paraguay." The
third program consisted of a memorial service for the late john F. Funk, noted Men-
nonite church leader and publisher, who died january 8, 1930. At the fourth pro-
gram, W. Shank gave an illustrated address on "The Mennonite Mission in Argen-
tina." The Funk Memorial program attracted special interest because of the out-
standing contribution of Bishop Funk to the Mennonite church. A. C. Kolb of Kitch-
ener, Ontario, read a paper on "The Life and Works of john F. Funk," and D.
johns gave a talk on "john F. Funk As I Knew Him." The service was very impres-
sive, and a large audience was present. ln addition to its regular programs, the So-
ciety continued and enlarged its publication work. At the request of the College the
Society assumed the responsibility of acting as publishing agent for the Mennonite
Quarterly Review. The third volume in the Society series of publications appeared
in December, 1931. It was a history of the Hutterian Brethren by john Horsch, en-
titled, "The Hutterian Brethren, 1527-1931, A Story of Martvrdom and Lovaltyf
Progress has also been made in classifying and cataloging the john F. Funk collection
of manuscripts and books secured last year. An adequate fire-proof library is greatly
needed to protect the treasures now in the Mennonite Historical Library.

These early Sunday morning meetings are not only a place to obtain inspiration,
but a place and time when those interested in Christian work receive instruction and
knowledge concerning the great cause of Christ and our work in relation to it.
Much help was received from the various topics discussed, as "Needs and Qualifica-
tions of the Worker," 'ATypes of Christian Work," "The Field," "Our Goshen Mis-
sion Sunday Schools," etc. Special messages were received occasionally from visiting
ministers and, also, from members of the faculty,
The blessings and help from these meetings have been put into practice, and from
the small task of distributing literature in North and East Goshen has arisen the two
Mission Sunday Schools in these parts of the city. This affords an excellent op-
portunity for the members to get experience in Christian and missionary work. Solici-
tation of Sunday School members, visiting the sick, and singing songs are other phases
of the work that is done,
"And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee, the only true God, and
Iesus Christ whom thou hast sent." In. l7:3. With this prayer of Christ in mind,
the Band, with an increase of membership, is endeavoring to continue and expand the
work begun that more people might be brought to a knowledge of Christ.

For anyone who is interested in Nature Study, and is desirous of profitably
spending his leisure time, the Audubon Society offers a real opportunity. It is the
aim of the Society to attract birds to the campus, stimulate interest in bird study, and
to cultivate appreciation of bird life.
Professor Witmer's work in connection with the Inland Bird Banding Society
during the last six years not only has furnished us with many interesting incidents of
bird life, but also valuable first hand information of migration habits. Some work is
also being done in photographing and making lantern slides of birds and their nests.
This year the Society has sponsored an Illustrated Bird Lecture and numerous field
trips with the purpose of becoming better acquainted with markings, songs, and habits
of birds and learning to recognize them in their natural habitat, To stimulate interest
in this phase of the work, two pairs of binoculars were purchased as property of the
Society. Every Spring a bird-list is made to determine the earliest date of arrival of
summer residents or transient migrants. The winter resident and permanent resident
birds are also recorded. The making of this list develops into somewhat a contest-
who will see the first arrival of each species. In order to attract more birds to the
campus a number of bird houses have been put up. Feeding boxes to tide the birds
through severe winters, and a bird-bath also serve this purpose.
Since birds are sensitively organized creatures and respond to the influences of
their surroundings, by studying them we better understand the workings of natural
laws. Since they are destroyers of weed seeds, and natural enemies of harmful in-
sects they are of economic importance. Since more than any other animal, birds.
through their songs, color, form, and power of flight, appeal to our love of beauty
and of grace, if we can in any way, by our study of birds help them in their struggle
for existence, we are rendering a real service to humanity.

The second year of the Ski Clubs existence has been similar to the first in that
the winter was exceptionally mild with very little snowfall. There was this difference,
however, that this year there were no injuries such as cut hands, twisted ankles, and
wrenched backs, even though there were just as many tumbles in the snow and just
as many initiates.
One enthusiast in attempting to slide through several bramble bushes in a prone
position emerged with a series of scratches, but most of the spills were nothing more.
Mention of the Ski Club brings out two kinds of grins. Those never having "taken
off" down a steep hill on a pair of skis or on a toboggan think of the fact that since
the Ski Club has been organized the snow has ceased to come and they grin. But
those who have been in the Bristol hills be it but once, smile to themselves in recol-
lection of that exhilarating flight down a hill of snow. The smile broadens as the
hill seems to swarm with the friends that tried and fell and tried again.

The first debate for Goshen's affirmative team, that with Wheaton College on
january 9, found the Goshen debaters still actively engaged in preparation for the
regular schedule in March. On account of the early date neither team was at its best.
The judge, Ben Stoner, of Plymouth, tied the teams on case and delivery and gave the
decision to Wheaton on adaptability. Niemann Brunk, Otto Binkele and H. Clair
Amstutz composed Goshens team in this first debate. After this date Brunk was
shifted to the negative team while Atlee Beechy was placed on the affirmative team on
the basis of the showing he had rnade in the Freshman debates. On February 26
and 27 two affirmative teams participated in a number of practice debates at a debate
meeting held at Manchester College. The first team, composed of H. Clair Amstutz,
Otto Binkele, and Atlee Beechy. participated in debates against Evansville College,
Hanover College, Indiana State Teachers' College, and Defiance College. The second
team, Marvin l-lostetler, George Luther, and Virgil Blosser met negative teams from
Bowling Green Normal and Manchester College. The helpful contacts made with
Christian students and teachers from other colleges, the valuable training received in
public discussion, and the knowledge gained in the technique of debating more than
repaid the squad for the time spent.
The first regular debate for the affirmative team was held on the home platform,
March 4, with a negative team from Marion College. The judge, Ben Stoner, in a
splendid critique, gave the decision to Goshen on case and adaptation and paid a high
tribute to H. Clair Amstutz.
Goshens affirmative met its next opponent at Franklin College south of Indian-
apolis on March 18. ln some respects this was the least satisfactory debate of the
season. The chorus trip had eliminated Otto Binkele and his substitute was ill. The
eighty-mile trip fatigued the debators. On the floor both teams suffered from over
confidence. And to crown it all the judge gave Goshen two hundred thirty-five
points and Franklin two more! On the whole, however, this team enjoyed a highly
successful season. -Iohn Urnble.

The negative team was prevented by illness from attending the debate meeting
at Manchester College, February 26 and 27. They suffered an additional handicap
in numbering only one upper-classman, Niemann Brunk. The other three members
were Freshman. Two, however. had previous experienc as high school debators.
The first debate of the negative team was with Marion College at Marion, In-
diana, on Friday, Nlarch 4. Marion College is a strongly evangelical school with
ideals much like our own. The debate with Marion was close. Some of the Marion
debaters seemed ready to concede victory to their opponents. But the judge, Senator
Hall of Marion, decided otherwise.
In its next debate the negative met Manchester College first affirmative at North
Manchester. Although this was scheduled as a non-decision debate, it was the
cleverest and closest contest held off the campus this year. Niemann Brunk and Mac
Cripe did exceptionally well. The Manchester coach and his team declared it their
best debate of the season up to that time. A critique, given by Coach Graybill. of
Warsaw, showed the teams very equally matched with Goshen excelling in delivery
The negatives' last debate was the best held on the local platform this year and
the DePauw team was the best that debated here this season. The judge, Professor
Claude Siffritt of Butler, gave the decision to DePauw although the margin of victory
was slight. The DePauw men were clearly more at home on the question and
manifested a greater mastery of material. The work of Niemann Brunk was again
Although from the standpoint of victories won the season has not been highly
successful, yet measured by the more important standard of character. development
and practice in public speaking, the results are not to be lightly regarded. Seven
Freshmen participated in from one to six debates. These. with H. Clair Amstutz and
Otto Binkele, will form the nucleus of next year's squad.

While the major interest of the debaters this year was the intercollegiate pro-
gram, considerable interest was also manifested in the two intramural debates. The
Freshmen showed their interest in this field by having a debate among themselves, the
question being the timely one of adoption by the several states of a system of com-
pulsory unemployment insurance. The aflirmative team, composed of Herman
Smucker, captain, Robert Welty, Atlee Beechy, and Marvin l-lostetler, alternate, con-
tended that something more than the present hit and miss method of dealing with
widespread unemployment is needed and argued that their plan is practicable as shown
by the fact that a number of leading concerns are already using it. The negative
composed of Mac Cripe, George Luther, Virgil Blosser, and Robert Shank, alternate,
ably attacked the practicability of the plan. The critic judge, Mr. Paul Kendall of
Dunlap, felt that the affirmative established and maintained their case, giving them
The only inter-class debate of the year was the Freshman-Sophomore women's
contest. The time-worn but ever new question was, "Resolved: That the United
States should give the Philippine lsland an immediate promise of complete independ-
ence in ten years." Hope Stutzman, Marie Yoder, Vera Snyder, and Mary Gross.
alternate, constituting the Sophomore team upheld the contention while the Freshman
team composed of Leona Yoder, Marion Hamm, Mildred Schrock, and Ruth Ebersole,
alternate, denied it. For the most part there was a fine clash of argument. The
judge. Mr. Merle Shanklin, of Goshen High School, gave the decision to the negative.
Both of these debates were close and were creditable performances.

The Home Economics Club has as its aim the development of a professional
spirit among its members and keeping in touch with current topics in the Home
Economics World. We try to find out the most modern ways of doing these things
our grandmothers did so well with so little equipment. Not only that-we study the
problems of the modern family from all angles. Home Economics is no longer pri-
marily interested in how to make the best foods and clothing in the most economical
manner nor how to apply the knowledge of art to making homes attractive, but is
deeply interested in the development of the child and its relation to the home, the
family life of to day. its problems and difficulties.
The club stresses mental, social and spiritual development of its members. It
strives for deeper appreciation of our heritage-our Christian homes. It brings out
the hidden beauty of those homes and shares it with others. The world today is
searching and longing for something to relieve its suffering from broken homes-homes
that no longer bind the family together as a unit. We need deeper understanding of
the problems that have brought about this deplorable state.
The child of today needs our sympathetic guidance more than the child of
yesterday. Since the home has failed in doing its duty that duty must be taken up by
others. Today the Home Economics world is awake to the fact that the childs
needs can not be measured by calories nor supplied by vitamins, but the question re-
mains-how supply these needs? These problems challenge our keenest thought.

Le Cercle Francais of Goshen College, opened its year in the Avon Rooms on
September twenty-second, 1931, at an informal tea given by Miss Shenk. ln reorgan-
izing it was thought best to form a Petit Cercle for the first year students so that
they might become better prepared for membership in the Cercle Francais. Iacob
Suclermann was chosen presidentg Mildred Risdon, vice president: Mary Iones, secre-
tary: and Robert Welty, treasurer. At the end of the first semester, the members of
the Petit Cercle were initiated into the Cercle Francais. One of the projects of the
club is to sponsor annually a concert by an outstanding artist. On Thursday eve-
ning, March 10, Iohn Thut, tenor soloist, an alumnus of Goshen College who is at
present on the teaching staff of the American Conservatory in Chicago, was pre-
sented by the Club in a public recital. The proceeds from this program were used in
purchasing some needed equipment for the French Department and enlarging the
French Library. During the Christmas season a public program was rendered in the
form of a pageant revealing the French version of the story of the Nativity, after
which the members of the Petit Cercle were escorted to the Avon rooms by the mem-
bers of the Cercle Francais for a Christmas party. At the last regular monthly
meeting on April 20, an interesting and comprehensive review of French Literature
was given, followed by vocabulary and French spelling contests, French games, and
refreshments. It was an "entire evening"-a French soiree.

in promoting appreciation of the German language, met and organized "Der Deutsche
The aims of this organization were listed in the constitution as follows:
a. Cultivating fluency of speech in the German language.
b. Arousing an interest in the writers and cultivating an appreciation of the rich
literary productions found in the German language.
c. Promoting an appreciation of German "Kultur"
Under the direction of Professor and Mrs. Gustav Enss, the "Verein" prospered
and enjoyed the distinction of being the largest literary organization of the school,
with a membership of forty-three.
The activities of the "Verein" experienced their climax in the annual Christ-
mas program. Those who were fortunate enough to witness the presentation of the
dialogue, "I-Ierodes und die Weisen," written by Professor Enss, will never forget
the picture which was so deeply impressed on their minds. We feel that this one
program in itself has justified the existence of our organization.

The Goshen College Alumni Association takes pleasure in saying to the student
body and constituency which the College represents. that the past academic year.
while one of concern for the welfare of the institution, has, however, closed in a
most satisfactory manner.
Many alumni have come forward nobly in responding to meet the Hnancial needs
of the College during this time of economic stress in the country. This action can be
construed as gratitude for benefits received from the College in the past and as a
pledge of loyalty for the future. This help has been gladly and humbly given. It will
be a further pleasure to every alumnus to know that this action lends courage and
determination to the administration and staff to continue cheerfully in the work they
The blessing of successful transition, through such times of stress, engenders not
only gratitude, but a sense of obligation. This may be called a feeling of indebtedness
to those who by financial and other sacrifice, have since the beginning of the College
made its existence and growth possible. The faith of those who have so sacrificed
becomes increasingly dear as one contemplates the devotion and heritage from which
The Alumni Association desires to be on record as consecrating its entire activity
and objective to a genuine expression of gratitude possible only through loyalty to the
faith which the constituency of the College espouses.

Goshen College realizes the need of wholesome recreation and physical education
for its students. This is accomplished by the two Athletic Associations and the
Physical Education Department.
The athletic program centers in the activity of teams and in individual competition
in such a way that all those who desire to participate may have the opportunity. This
system of intramural athletics permits the maximum number of students to be engaged
in athletic activities. Awards are made as a means of stimulating interest and develop-
ing skill in the various activities.
The Physical Education class work consists of calisthenics, games, and drills
in the fundamentals of physical education. -Howard Nase.

on a competitive point system. The program provides for inter-society, inter-class.
and varsity teams. Five inter-class teams were entered this season, The schedule of
this sport was divided into a Round Robin tournament, and an elimination tourna-
ment at the close of the season. The closest and most exciting games of the year
proved to be the inter-society games. The entire 1931-32 basket ball season was very

The basket ball season of 1931-32 has been one of intense interest because all
the teams were quite evenly matched. The class championship for the year was
determined on the basis of games lost and won in the Round Robin Tournament, to-
gether with the rating received in the elimination tournament at the end of the season.
The Seniors won first place and the Iunmores won second place. ln the elimina-
tion tournament the Iunmores won first place from the Seniors by a very close score.
Thus the Iunmores and Seniors tied for championship this year. The honors have
been divided between the two teams. The Avon and Vesperian teams both increased
their strength this year, and had the two strongest basket ball teams in school. The
first society game ended with a score of 34-18 in favor of the Vesperians. The other
two games ended with final scores of 18-19 and 13-14 in favor of the Avons.

Considerable enthusiasm has been shown this year for baseball and the com-
paratively new game of kitten or playground ball. Much interest was shown in kitten
ball last fall, when fifty-seven men signed up to play the game. The candidates were
divided as evenly as possible into five teams, which played a schedule whereby each
team played four games. The games were all very close and exciting as was shown
by the fact that three teams were tied for first place.
This spring we were very fortunate in that the city kindly consented to grade the
infield for us, thereby making a nice smooth playing field, which means that from
henceforth no alibis will be accepted from the infielders, due to "bad hops."
Thirty-two fellows signed up this spring to participate in the greatest of Ameri-
can sports. Due to the lack of a sufficient number of moundsmen and receivers only
two teams were made from this group. A miniature "World Series" has been
scheduled in which the winners of four games out of seven will receive the honor of
College Champsg moreover, each individual of the winning team gets four points to-
wards his letter, for each victory, whereas the losers get only two points.
In the few games that have been played thus far there was a considerable dis-
play of flashy fielding and some fairly good work at the stick. Some keen competi-
tion is expected between these two teams and likewise between the two society teams.
which have three games on their schedule. If fair weather continues we shall have
about two games for each of the remaining six weeks of school.

Tennis at Goshen College was somewhat delayed this spring because of un-
suitable weather. With the advent of warmer weather, however, came also the
perennial rush to sign up for playing space at all open periods. The courts are in
use from early morning until darkness halts the day's activities.
A perpetual tournament, in which there are forty men, is played each fall and
spring. At the close of the fall season the four ranking players engage in a play-off
for the College Fall Championship. ln the spring an elimination tournament of the
first sixteen men is run off. In addition to these tourneys the Auroras and Adelphians
battle for team honors. The Adelphians with such players as Bradford, Yoder,
George, and Miller present a strong threat to repeat last year's victory.
The 1931 spring tournament for men was won by Ioe Bradford when he dis-
posed of Glenwood Schertz in the finals. H. Nase and L. Kreider were the other
semi-finalists, Bradford stroked his way to another championship in the fall of
1931. Albert Yoder was runner-up and Nase and O. Miller ranked third and fourth.
The same four men are the outstanding contenders for the spring laurels.
The women's tennis program is conducted much after the fashion of the men's.
A perpetual tournament is started in the fall and continued the next spring. Toward
the close of the school year an elimination tourney is sponsored. Rose Adams, Fresh-
man: Sarah Esch, Iuniorg LaVerne Yoder and Carolyn Lehman, Sophomores, are leadf
ing women players on the campus this year.

Outstanding interest has been shown by a large number of men in the track and
Held events. The group has made considerable progress, and a few records are in
danger of being shattered, as indicated in the spring training.
The college records as they now stand will be very difficult to surpass since seven
of these were broken in 1931. This excellent performance is partly due to the im'
proved athletic field with adequate jumping pits and the fast quarter-mile oval. The
final results of this year's work will be brought to light in the lnter-Society Track
Meet and the lnter-Class Track Meet.

With the approach of cooler weather came the call for soccer and its advocates.
This was one of the popular minor sports of the athletic program, and was well sup-
ported by all. This was shown when forty men signed for the sport. This group was
divided into three teams, and a series of games were played. The series proved to
be very interesting and hard played. After some fine defensive playing and brilliant
teamwork, team 1, under the direction of R. Beechy, Hnally emerged the victor.
This sport proved to be a very good conditioner for the basket ball season, as
indicated by the condition of the men when they reported for basket ball practice, and
the result of the basket ball games.

Goshen College has no inter-collegiate athletics, but has a very efficient and
beneficial system of intramural athletics for both men and women. The program con--
sists of a group of major and minor sports, and centers on the activity of teams and
individual competition. Points are given on the basis of competition in the intramural
program, the total number of points earned by an individual is taken as the basis
An honor sweater is given to the man earning the highest number of points each
year, two light-weight sweaters are given to the next two highest competitors, and
the next seven men are given a letter These awards ar given as a recognition
of achievement and represent a certain level of ability plus activity.
The point system adopted several years ago for the girls who are interested in
athletics has proved a great stimulus to activity this year. As an incentive for better
work in the regular physical education classes points are also given for grades above
average. In order to win a letter, 400 points must be earnedg SOO points are required
for a numeral, and anadditional 800 points must be earned for a sweater, which is
the highest award given. This year several girls were able to earn sweatersp many
letters and numerals were awarded, however.
The Athletic Associations sponsor both systems, and present the awards.
Following are the athletic programs as outlined:
