SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
Motto: "He Conquers Who Enduresf'
Colors: Scarlet and Gray
Flower: Yellow Tea Rose
In 1936 ninety-three freshmen answered "Here" to the
roll call in College Life class. Eight of these charter mem-
bers have remained all four years. They are: Mae Orendorff,
Betty Trump, Georgia Ellen Loucks, Ruth King, Samuel
Bucher, Vernon Schmidt, Elwood Ziegler and Howard
Time knows no stopping place. XVe must go on. NVe
have much to look forward to, but there is much behind
that will draw us back. We recall how, as freshmen, we
struggled through our first party in the dining hall. XVe
ended that year with a rollicking time at Camp Mack. Our
President was Leland Bylerg Vice President, Harvey Huns-
bergerg Secretary, Naomi Hoylmang Treasurer, May Rohrer.
As sophomores we felt a little more at ease. Many strug-
gled with their practice teaching. When we should have
been studying, the weather prompted a skating party. Our
boys' basketball team headed the league. Our officers this
year were President, Falls Hershey, Vice President, Frank
Bylerg Secretary, Ruth Kingg Treasurer. Maurice Burkholder.
As juniors we were startled to find how small our class had
grown. Our officers were President, Maurice Burkholderg
Vice President, Samuel Bucher, Secretary, Elizabeth Sieberg
Treasurer, Isaiah Harley. Along with our work we had to have
some fun, so we had a fraud sneak. For our class outing we
went to Bonneyville Mill. At another time our class spon-
sor, Miss Shenk, entertained us at a party where our candy-
making abilities were tried. The year closed with a social
feature at a park in Elkhart. October 3, 1938, marked the
date of our sneak. The scenery was beautiful at Turkey Run,
where we spent two pleasant days. Upon our return the
juniors sent us upon a mysterious venture that ended in sup-
per outdoors. By this time we had learned that our class
sponsor had another interest, and would be leaving us, so
in her place we chose Professor Wfillard Smith.
We, too, have come to the place where we must leave.
We step out that another class may take our place. We have
been here, now we are gone. Time knows no stopping place.

Motto: "Rowing, Not Drifting."
Colors: Blue and Gold
Flower: Yellow American Beauty Rose
In the fall of 1936 one hundred and twenty freshmen
invaded the Goshen College campus. These young men and
women left their homes in varied sections of the United
States. They came from the shores of the Atlantic and the
Pacific, they came from Canada and from sunny Texas.
They came with various aims and goals in mind, but each
one felt that the years spent at Goshen College would be
profitable. The class progressed under capable leadership:
Virgil Gerig, President, John Smucker, Vice President,
Frances Barnard, Secretaryg Elizabeth Plank, Treasurer, and
Richard Culp, Historian. During this freshman year, while
they were becoming adjusted to their new environment, they
held their colors high in forensics, and their ability in ath-
letics was not to be smiled at. And, of course, freshmen
have their fun, too. They became better acquainted with
one another through the Snowbound party in the gym, and
the Class Day outing at "The Dunes".
The fall of 1937 saw the return of seventy-six of the
one hundred and twenty who had enrolled as freshmen.
That year they had the following organization: Franklin
Bishop, Presidentg Lawrence Stump, Vice President, Edith
King, Secretary, and Williani Allan, Treasurer. Again they
showed that they were not behind in intercollegiate debate,
discussion, declamation, music, and athletics. Some of the
most interesting socials of the year were the treasure hunt,
the sleigh ride, and the party in the cabin by the river.
Since many of the students were taking the two-year
teachers, training course, these did not return for the junior
year. A few recruits, however, have joined the force, which
brings the number to thirty-six. Wajfne Yeater is at the
helm as Presidentg Clifford Yoder, Vice President, Elizabeth
Plank, Secretary, Pauline Liechty, Treasurer, and Eleanor
Reist, Historian. Again the Juniors have done well in the
various campus activities, and again they have enjoyed their
associations together. Such things will be remembered: the
picnic at Miller's Grove, during which one of our more dig-
nified members took an unexpected plunge in the creek,
the tobogganing party, the royal entertainment given the
Seniors out at the end of Gra-Roy Drive after they returned
from the "sneak" we so graciously allowed them to take,
and, of course, the Junior-Senior Banquet.
Now at the close of the year '38-,319 we are looking
forward to another year in which to row, not drift.

SOPHGMGRE CLASS HISTORY
Motto: God our Guide, Service our Path, Success our Goal.
Colors: Blue and White
Flower: Wfhite Chrysanthemum
Eager to again avail ourselves of the splendid educational opportunities
presented by Goshen College, seventy-nine from our Freshman Class returned
to the campus. Ten others have been welcomed into our midst. We represent
India, Canada and twelve states.
Qur class was organized with Charles Ainlay, president: Ralph Hernley,
vice presidentg Betty Kate Lee, secretaryg Lowell Hershberger, treasurer, and
Ella May XVcaver, historian. Dr. Guy Hershberger continues to be our sponsor.
We vividly recall the social at the Boy Scout camp near Dunlap. The
main features were the treasure hunt and the abundance of watermelons and
hamburgers. After Chr'stmas vacation climatic conditions afforded us 3
pleasant evening of sleighing.
Wfe have whole-heartedly contributed to the extra-curricular activities.
For the first time in the history of Goshen College, girls have participated in
debating. The Sophomore girls team won five debates out of five at Man-
chester. The men were winners in the Freshman-Sophomore debates. A mem-
ber of the class won the Men's Discussion Contest. In athletics the men won
the consolation game. The girls were victors in the Freshman-Sophomore
Soon our sophomore class will be of the past but we will ever have God :s
our Guide while travelling in paths of Service toward our Goal-Success.
On November 22, 1938,
Marvin Schertz, a Sophomore,
finished his studies in this world.
Unassuming, but with a ready
smile, he was a friend to all he
met. May the memory of his
Christian life prove an inspira-
tion to all.

FRESI-IMAN CLASS HISTORY
Motto: Character-the only true diploma.
Class Colors: Green and White
Class Flower: White Rose
September 14, 1938, ninety-six slightly bewildered
students, representatives of eleven states, entered the
mysterious realm of college life as Freshmen. During
Freshmen days many friendships were formed and many
unforgettable activities engaged in. We wrote our
names on registration cards, sat through endless lectures
and took a series of placement and psychological tests.
Un December 14, having drawn up a constitution,
we organized our class. The officers elected were: presi-
dent, Harold Oyerg vice president, Clarence Burckg
secretary, Lois Erbg treasurer, Jacob Beer, and historian,
Freda Maust. We chose Professor Walter Yoder as class
A number of Freshmen Went out for debating.
Clara Lehman and Genevieve Warner, as debaters of the
Freshman class, won the Freshman-Sophomore Women's
Many Freshmen are enthusiasts in the various
athletic activities on the campus and the Freshman A
team came out victorious in the men's interclass basket-
We have appreciated the Christian spirit which pre-
vails on the campus. It has guided us toward our goal-
"Culture for Servicev. As the year draws to a close
we can look back with pleasant memories to the success
and pleasure we have enjoyed so far.
These things I love:
Hard winds whose teeth
Snarl at high peaks
And plains beneathg
The frail, half-eaten
Bits of moon
That watch the dawns
Wliich come too soong
I love the warmth
Of hands in mineg
Of burning pine.
And this I love-
The quiet breath
Cf God, within
The house of Death.

The Y.M.C.A. is designed to co-
operate with the faculty in fostering a
Christian atmosphere on the campus.
This organization holds that Chris-
tianity should be a living source of
inspiration for every phase of our
daily life. With this assumption the
Y.M.C.A. provides Christian interests
and activities sufficiently diversified
to touch many of the phases of nor-
With the spiritual life of the stu-
dent body at heart, the association
provides weekly devotional meetings,
Mission Study classes, and prayer
meetings. Various committees have

charge of these and similar activities
each under the leadership of a chair-
man Who also acts as a member of
the cabinet. Many of the social ac-
tivities on the campus are sponsored
by the social committee of the HY".
Off-campus activities are also a
part of the program. Gospel Teams
are sent on extensive tours among
the churches, and each week a Gospel
Team is sent to the Wliite Cross Mis-
sion in Elkhart and also to the Elk-
hart County Jail in Goshen. By
taking part in such activities students
have the opportunity to grow and de-
velop talent and experience.

It is Monday evening, and the
Cabinet assembles in the Y.W. room.
A prayer is offeredg then each mem-
ber tells of her work with her com-
mittee. Open discussion is followed
by worship. After the scripture
reading, requests for prayer are given.
The meeting is closed with the theme
song, "Follow the Gleam".
The Y.W.C.A. is to promote
Christian growth. In this endeavor
it works with the Y.M.C.A. The

On Saturday evening, December 17, the
Gospel Team began the first of its series of pro-
grams on Q'The Transformed Life". The team
consisted of John Coffman, S. Paul Miller,
Reuben XWidmer, Howard Zehr, Robert Kreider,
Dwight Stoltzfus, Sturges Miller, and Allen
Miller. W'ith john Coffman as leader, they gave
programs at Chief, White Cloud, Ashley, Vesta-
burg, Turner, Pigeon, Pigeon River, and Imlay
City in Michigan.
The group disbanded at Imlay City and John
Coffman, Reuben Widme1', and Howard Zehr
left for their homes. S. Paul Miller, Robert
Kreider, Sturges Miller, Dwight Stoltzfus, and
Allen Miller travelled eastward to meet Ralph
Hernley and Isaiah Harley. Later they were
joined by Lawrence Burkholder as leader. They
gave programs at Johnstown and Scottdale in
Pennsylvania, and at North Lima, Beech, Wfal-
nut Creek, Canton, Kidron, and Oak Grove in
FOREIGN VOLUNTEER BAND
To carry out Christis comand "Go ye into all
the world" some of us Want to give our lives
for Christian service in foreign lands. The For-
eign Volunteer Band Was organized for those
interested in this work. This year we had
varied programs. Several return missionaries
gave us valuable information. One meeting was
devoted to a prayer service for Vesta Nafziger,
a former member leaving for India. Timothy
Brenneman, a former member appointed to
Argentina, left us a challenge to spread mission-
ary information. The last meetings were de-
voted to a series of talks by M. C. Lehman con-
cerning the philosophy of missions. The open
discussions of a practical nature were an im-
portant part of the meetings. There were
twenty-three members this year with Lawrence

The Band this year attempted a
definite program to broaden our vi-
sion and to inspire us to study Chris-
tian service. Three types of pro-
grams were presented: a study of the
"Characteristics of the Winiaing
Worker", a general world survey
to find fields for activity, and prac-
tical methods of Christian service.
The success of the program cannot
be measured until time has mellowed
the efforts. The Wednesday morn-
ing prayer service provided an oppor-
tunity for mutual assistance and
united prayer. That the organiza-
tion filled a large part in the lives of
the students was shown by the splen-

Although there were fewer Bible

new high level of 34. Programs in-

address on "The Mennonites of
Europe", and an illustrated lecture,
"The Old Book Finding New

Le Cercle Francais is an organization for those
who are interested in France and who wish to
develop a deeper appreciation for her literature,
art, music and Culture.
The club holds regular meetings under the
sponsorship of the instructor in French. Miss
Shenk served as sponsor until her marriage in
January, when she was succeeded by Mr. Otto
Binkele. The club was privileged to hold a fare-
well party for Miss Shenk at the home of Pro-
fessor Noble Kreider at which time he favored
the group by reading some selections of French
poetry. The programs and entertainment
usually consist of musical numbers, readings,
talks, and the playing of French games.

One of the most profitable and interesting
societies on the campus of Goshen College is
the Audubon Society. This society stimulates
the interest and appreciation of bird lore.
The first semester John Coffman served as
president. When he left Donald Ebersole was
elected as president of the society.
Since Goshen College is situated in the
midst of Nature itself, surrounded with
beautiful lakes, the race, and beautiful treed
areas such as the Shoup Woods and College
Point, the club has more than the usual op-
portunity of observing the feathered family.
Early morning hikes take place during the
fall and spring. The alarm clock usually
rings at the hour of 5:30 A. M., and all the
ardent bird lovers tumble out of bed for a
brisk hike through the woods to study the
birds of the season.
After an hour or so of intermittent hiking
and bird study, the group usually meets at
the favorite bonfire at the end of Gra-Roy
Drive, to compare notes, and to enjoy a
much-appreciated, healthy breakfast of hot
coffee, rolls, eggs, and bacon. These morning
hikes prove both beneficial and excellent
starters for the first-hour classes to which
the group hurries back.

had a successful year. We got our
share of new members on solicitation
day, with a total of fifty-three mem-
bers for the year. Later, we treated
the Avons to an outing where the Elk-
hart river flows. Here we renewed old
acquaintances and made new ones.
We helped to sponsor the Avon-Au-
rora musicale to which we invited the
Adelphians and Vesperians.

We were also successful in athletics.
We played the Adelphians in soft ball
and basketball and emerged with our

We again sponsored the annual

vital part of campus life.

In Goshen College, as John S. Coff-
man declared in 1896, "the blessed
Bible, which has been ruled out of so
many schools, colleges and universities,
must have a place . . . Its precepts
must be vigorously taught". In ac-
cordance with Coffmanls program,
at Goshen College the Bible is taught
as the infallible Word of God. The
faculty is committed firmly to the
evangelical position and seeks to
propagate a Biblical Mennonitism.
During the past year S. C. Yoder
was on leave of absence. Harold S.
Bender, Paul E. Mininger and John
C. Wenger served as the Bible school
faculty. John Duerksen also taught
one class each semester.
The Bible School attempts to meet
the needs of several classes of stu-
dents. Any college student may elect
to take a number of Bible courses or
to become a candidate for the B.A.
degree with a minor or major in
Bible. The degree of Bachelor of
Theology QTh.B.j , is offered to those
having a minimum of fifty-four se-
mester hours of credit in Bible, and
who have satisfied the other require-
ments for that degree. The College
also offers a two-year Christian
Workers' Course for those interested
in less than four years of training.
Naturally the major emphasis is
upon a first-hand study of the Eng-
lish Bible. However, an encouraging
response is being given the New Tes-
tament Greek classes which are con-
ducted every year and to the Hebrew
course which is offered occasionally.
With an ever-greater need of sound
Biblical training in the Mennonite
Church, the Bible School has a bright
WINTER BIBLE SCHOOL
Every young Mennonite who has not
had the opportunity of a Christian col-
lege education should spend several win-
ters in the Bible School.
This year eighty-three students were
enrolled from seven states. Courses in
Bible, Church History, practical church
work and music were offered. The reg-
ular teachers were: D. A. Yoder, I. E.
Burkhart, I. W. Royer, and O. N. Johns.
Walter E. Yoder, Mrs. Glen R. Miller,
John Duerksen, and John C. Weiiger of
the college faculty each taught one
course. A chorus of thirty members was
organized and sang at the commence-
Religious, Social, and News commit-
tees were in charge of student activities.
A boys, basketball team was organized,
and two games were played with college

MEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
At Goshen, we believe the success of a
college athletic program lies in the extent
of participation by and service to all the
students rather than in the specialized
training of a select few. We have a sys-
tem of intramural athletics which is joint-
ly controlled by student and faculty com-
mittees. It is possible for every student
interested in physical activity to partici-
pate in our athletic program. An im-
portant aspect of personal development
should be the development of a strong,
healthy body. To this development, prop-
er physical exercise and training has a vital
contribution to make. Athletic activities
included softball, football, speedball, ten-
nis, volleyball, badminton, tumbling, arch-
ery, skiing, swimming, ping pong, basket-
ball, baseball and the annual Spring Track
Meet. In all of these activities the Goshen
College Athletic Association endeavors to
cooperate with the class room activity of
the school in making its contribution to
the development of better American citi-

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
The purpose of the W.A.A. is "to pro-
mote the interest of student women in
gymnasium and field sports, and recrea-
tional activitiesu. In a quiet way the of-
ficers and active members have worked to-
gether to accomplish this end. The letter
members of the W.A.A. bicycled and had
breakfast together. The same group ar-
ranged for a "Play Day" program and
banquet for forty-two girls in January.
In addition to these recreational activities
there have been two important changes in
the system of awards. Because of the in-
terest in volley ball, because the purpose
of the W.A.A. is to serve the largest pos-
sible group, and because it is now recog-
nized that too much emphasis has been
placed on the highly organized and tech-
nical game of basketball, the W.A.A. has
placed the awards for all team sports on the
same level. When this change was made
they felt that it was only fair to insist on
participation in some team sport. Conse-
quently in order to qualify for a letter or
sweater it is now necessary for the person
to take part in two of the team games.

It has been an annual tradition at Goshen
College that the literary societies, both men,s
and women's, meet on the basketball floor.
For many years the Adelphian and Vesperian
societies had maintained supremacy in this
department of our athletics. Last year, how-
ever, the Auroras first broke the long string
of victories of the Adelphians and this year
a superior Aurora team repeated.
In the first game the Adelphians won 27
to 18. The second game which proved to be
a well-played, fast game resulted in a victory
for theiAurora's 25-23, tying the series at
one game each. In the play off the Auroras
Won the series with a final victory, the score
In the Women's society games the Ves-
perians continued to hold the upper hand.
Wfith the accurate scoring of sharp shooting
forwards, victory was attained by the Ves-
The object of these games, to create friend-
ly rivalry and further develop good sports-
manship, was fully realized this past season.

What are some of the welcome signs of
Spring? Robins, wildflowers, croaking of
frogs? Yes-but how about the appearance
of the baseball glove-the warming up exer-
cises? In a few days the ball throwers con-
gregate in great numbers out on the new
ball diamond. The crisp hard crack of a well
hit ball, the skillful scoop and over to first,
the incessant chatter! That is baseball. In
our whole athletic system no game is played
on a higher level of achievement or with
A newcomer among sports is touch foot-
ball. This is a game played with a football
but lacks the tackling and roughness of regu-
lar football. It has been enthusiastically re-
ceived by the fifty men participating. As
the cool days of fall come on, a running,
throwing game with a ball that is more elu-
sive-harder to handle-admirably fills the
gap between softball and the later gymna-
Everybody plays softball. Running con-
currently with tennis, archery, and horse-
shoe pitching, it is the opening-of-school
game. Teams are quickly organized and the
athletic school year is begun. As proof of its
popularity one need but cite the fact that
many men and women participated in the
fall of '38. After initial wrestlings with sub-
jects of the classrooms, many let up by play-
ing or watching a ball game.
An examination of the multi-punctured
targets and the many wrecked arrows reveals
the considerable activity in archery during
the present season. Some of the men have
made bows of their own, thus adding to their
pleasure in the sport. While many men and
women are receiving instructions in the rudi-
ments of archery, no one to date has de-
veloped into an expert archer. A small
nucleus of men or women is needed to develop
archery to the level where it means some-
thing to be rated as a Goshen College archer.
The fall of '38 was an ideal tennis season.
In fact the season was so favorable that a
tennis tournament of major proportion was
initiated and completed. Jacob Beer won the
fall championship in a field of 16 contend-
ers, eliminating Ralph Greener in the finals.
Interest and skill is definitely moving up-
wards among women players, no doubt as a
result of supervised tennis training in Physical
Introduced as an experiment, badminton
has rapidly won recognition as a game de-
manding dazzling speed and accuracy. It
fills a peculiar need in that it may be played
in any kind of weather, at any time of the
day, and with but two or four players. The
game is much faster than tennis since the
shuttlecock, unlike the tennis ball, is played
entirely in the air and at much shorter range.
Tournaments enlisted sixty-eight men and

It was so clean and new
The little home along the country roadg
They planned all year, saving
Enough to marry and to live there
Together . . . winter came, and she grew ill . .
Many winters come.
A vacant house where curtainless windows
Are hung with snow, which falls outside,
Catches the thorns of ancient gossip.
Here deathly silence is shattered
When branches scrape across the roof,
And a frightened rat rushes
Under the corner of Ll loosened board to hide.
A beautiful phantasy
Upon a silken strand
Page one hzuzdred eighteen
Tears of melancholy rain,
A breath of incense,
A Voice of rapture
From poppies bled,
And wine from laughter,
From memory's echo,
Wfhen life has fled,
A silken rustle
In phantom halls,
A cloak of night,
When love was said,
It is a beautiful phantasy
Upon a silken strand.
