His classrooms are free from cloying curriculum — he brings beauty in literature and life to his students — his aesthetic viewpoint brightens our lives — increases our perceptive ability — adds cubits to our metal stature. Because of his generosity in giving us of his store of knowledge — his unflagging efforts for our benefit — his genuine interest in us — because he is Our Friend and Counselor — we, the class of nineteen hundred and thirty- five, do dedicate this port ion cf cur handiwork to him as a tribute of our affection and appreciation. ll£ FOREWORD As the weary traveler of old paused ' side the rugged, ivy - clad walls cf an old chapel, bathed in the warm, lingering rays of a dying sun, to listen to the soft strains of organ music wafted on the wings of gentle breezes thru murmuring leaves, and to grasp for a moment a joy akin to that of heaven, so we, the Ravelings Staff of 1935, have paused, in the midst of this modern world of struggle and toil, to offer as a memorial of our class, a theme whose inspiration is the beauty of the life at Monmouth. If we have caught but glimpses of those familiar walls — those seemingly barren classrooms — those traditional walks and trees and have surrounded them with ro- mance and beauty, cur efforts will have been well re- paid if perchance the casual reader as he idly turns the pages of this volume may sense the hidden beauty of our lives at dear old Alma Mater. 1 H B STAFF DEAN L.

They will call to mind the sincerity of Monmouth friendships, the high level of Monmouth standards, the vigor of Monmouth contests, and the inspiration of Monmouth ideals. The hope of the faculty for all of our students is that passing years will bring a full share of duty, responsibility, op- portunity, and happiness. J. S. Clelakd, Dean of the College. " May Beauty dwell with you, Courage walk with you. And the Inspiration of Truth shine on your way; " And may every year of life for every Monmouth College student be richer than the last. Mary Ross Potter, Dean of Women. I have been looking over the Ravelings lor the past two or three years. I see there a spirit of " Carry On " even egainst tremendous odds. Haven ' t we now reached a place that enables us to look forward with some sense of security? " If this be true, let us move forward and keep in mind and profit by the lessons adversity has taught us. D. M. McMichael. Business Manager of the College. Pn.UL- Kiu:litivn HUGH R.

As timid, green, but hopeful, freshmen " Doc " rightly inspired us as we entered into our college career, and now, though greatly depleted in numbers, we feel that we have lived up to all our aspirations. The class of ' 34 has had a well rounded college career. We have gained distinction in forensics, dram- atics, athletics, and scholarship. During these last days which are going all too fast we swing our canes and swagger sticks feeling confident that our honors as a class will not end with the receiving of our diplomas but will continue in all walks of life, proudly reflect- ing back to Monmouth College.

Student Body Junior Class Officers President Donald Irwin Vice President Dean Robb Secretary-Treasurer Janet Randies Junior Class History The so-called sophisticated Juniors are about to leave their present moorings and, in one more voyage, to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of their freshman year. What strange and eventful things have taken place since the fall of ' 31 ! Many sacrifices have been made for an education during the depression of this college generation. Yet with success, students have overcome these obstacles and have courageously held to their college course. The class of ' 35 is represented in all phases of college activity. Her athletes lacked but one virtue — the ability to climb poles. Her actors and actresses would make many of the Hollywood colony a trifle uneasy should anyone of them rival their positions. Her debaters and orators are second unto none. Her scholars would make even Solomon strive to maintain his position as the wisest man. Her politicians have more or less virtue and plenty of white wash. As the last year dawns, may the class of ' 35 hold to her high ideals and make Monmouth College proud of her attainments.

" Page Thirty-seven Sophomore Class Officers President Paul Barnes Vice President Fletcher Smith Secretary-Treasurer Alleyne Norris Sophomore Class History The Class of ' 36 has lost none of its ambition since we started as a large class last year. During the sophomore year students have most of their goals set, and in so doing lend their stability to the institution. This is what the sophomore class has done. Our first victory was in winning the pole scrap as freshmen and still re- taining the victory as sophomores. Our class is well represented in athletics, de- bate and oratory. Our scholarship is of the very best and we have excellent talent both in music and acting. Before the next two years have passed these students will have made an appreciable contribution to Monmouh College in establishing its future.

As a record for scholastic standing cne-third of the names found on the honor roll belong to freshmen. In the athletic line the little Scots gave promises for a bright future. Through forensic subjects the frosh were able to display unusual ability both in debate and declamation. The goal has been set — a record class for those who have gone before and a standard for those who are to come. May the class of ' 37 ever keep the color in the Scotch plaid!

Pole Scrap To upper classmen, the shrill blast of the college whistle in the middle of a crisp October morning means a respite from a dry lecture. To Sophomores it means there is honor at stake and a cause to defend even to the very brink of their lives. To Freshmen it might not mean anything unless the tenseness has in some manner instilled upon their minds and imaginations that Monmouth Col- lege every fall holds a glorified bull fight for the delight of many hundreds of people. In the Pole Scrap of the fall of 1933 the Sophomores really had something to fight for, as they had won the scrap the previous year. This class was the first class to win that distinction for several years and though outnumbered great- ly by the frosh they stood off the onslaught for an hour packed with bruises and an overabundance of wholesale destruction to old summer attire. The frosh put up a brave fight and came very near to success but the strain of the battle and the height of the Pole combined to send them down in defeat.

Coach Hart Herbert L. Hart has been Athletic Director at Monmouth since 1924, serving as head coach in football and track, and during the past year had charge of freshman basketball. In bis ten years at Monmouth Coach Hart has compiled enviable records in football and track, and has reason to be proud of the intramural sports program which has developed largely under his supervision. As head coach in baseball and basketball, as well as freshman football, Robert Smiley is completing his fifth year at Monmouth. " Bob ' s " ability as a coach comes from actual experience in sports, for during his student days at Mcnmcuth he was voted the most val- uable basketball player in the conference and played second base en the baseball team.

The victories were over Burlington Junior College, Iowa Wesleyan, Illinois College, and Knox. The defeats were at the hands of Coe, Cornell, Augustana, Bradley, and Carthage. The Fighting Scots opened the football season on September 27, the game being postponed one day on account of rain. Burlington Junior College was the first opponent as Monmouth walked through for a 26 to 7 win. It was a night game played at Burlington, the only night game of the entire schedule. Touch- downs were scored by Catanzaro, Akers, and two by Buchenau. The two points after tochdown were place-kicked by Catanzaro and Buchenau. On September 30 Monmouth won its first home game from Iowa Wesley- an. Bobby Woll and Marion Harper scored the touchdowns for Monmouth as the Scots won 1 4 to 0. Harper pounced on a blocked punt by MacDonald behind the goal line, and Bobby ran 70 yards for his touchdown after reversing the entire field. Catanzaro place-kicked both extra points with precision. The next Saturday on October 7 Monmouth played a strong Coe team to come out on the low end of a I 3 to score at Monmouth. In this first Midwest encounter of the year, the only threat by Monmouth for a touchdown came in the final quarter when Catanzaro heaved a long pass to McConnell. On four attemps Monmouth could not make the necessary yardage and had to give the ball to Coe on downs. The Scots ' first Little 19 encounter was with Illinois College the following Saturday, October 14, and the Scots won 1 3 to 2. Touchdowns were scored by Winbigler and Woll. Winbigler blocked a punt on Illinois ' 30 yard line and then raced to the one yard line where the ball had rolled, picked the ball up and £tepped over for the touchdown. Catanzaro kicked the placement after the first touchdown. Buchenau punted on one occasion 70 yards to relieve Monmouth. Breaks helped Cornell defeat Monmouth in a Midwest Conference game at Mt. Vernon on the following Friday, October 20. Monmouth ' s touchdowns were scored by " Cactus " McConnell and little Bobby Woll. Winbigler heaved a long pass to McConnell for the first touchdown, while Bobby Woll carried the ball over from the one-foot line. Catanzaro kicked the extra point following the first touchdown. The final score was 14 to 1 3 in favor of Cornell. Page Sixty-five The following week on Saturday, October 28, the Scots battled Augustana, Augie winning 14 to 13 before a large crowd of Monmouth Homecomers. It was the first time since 1928 that Augustana has beaten Monmouth in football. Touchdowns were scored by Bobby Woll who ran 65 yards down the field to score, and a pass from Woll to Frantzen netted the other counter. Catanzaro made the first try from placement but missed the last in the final minutes of play. Monmouth lost to Bradley at Monmouth as a result of a bad pass defense on Armistice Day, Saturday, November 1 1 . Bobby Woll proved to be the only Monmouth hope as he raced 65 yards for Monmouth ' s only touchdown as Brad- ley won 1 3 to 6. Lee Handley proved to be just too much for Monmouth as he punted, passed, and ran through the Monmouth defense during the entire after- noon. McConnell snagged a Bradley pass and raced down the field for a Bradley scare. In the Carthage game Monmouth showed great offensive strength as they made 13 first downs to Cathage ' s 10. The game was played at Carthage on Saturday, November 18. Touchdowns were scored by Woll and McConnell. Bobby took the ball over from the one foot line, while Catanzaro passed to McConnell for the second touchdown. The score ended in favor of Carthage, 1 4 to 12, as they took advantage of the extra points while Monmouth could not convert. Thanksgiving Day furnished perfect weather for the 49th football game between Monmouth and Knox and one of the most enthusiastic football crowds ever to watch Monmouth play, was on hand to see the battle, which Monmouth won 20 to 6. Knox scored their only touchdown in the first quarter, but could not convert the extra point. From then on Monmouth held the upper hand with- out question. In the second and third quarters Monmouth scored three touch- downs and kicked goal twice. Fans who saw the game probably got their big- gest thrill when 129 pound Bobby Woll closed his intercollegiate football career, scoring two touchdowns. After scoring the first touchdown following a lateral from Don Irwin, Woll scored the second touchdown after an 88 yard jaunt down the field. MacDonald scored the third touchdown when he dropped on a blocked punt behind the goal line. Catanzaro kicked the two extra points from placement. Monmouth men who played their final college football game were: Woll, Tinker, Hamilton, Brown, Pressley, Harper, McConnell, H. Akers, Winbig- ler, and Frantzen. The following men received awards: Robert Woll, Eugene Tinker, Orland Hamilton, Edwin Brown, Roscoe Pressley, Marion Harper, Robert McConnell, Harold Akers, Gordon Winbigler, Peter Frantzen, Jack Nuding, Stanley Mac Donald, Donald Irwin, Bert Minton, Elbert Catanzaro, Sam Akers, Paul Barnes, George Lucas, Thomas Whelan, Marshall Grier Freshmen Football The Freshmen again did their part this year as they stayed out all fall to give the Varsity some competition in scrimmage. Most of the season was spent in scrimmage against the Varsity but under the Conference rules, they played two games The first game was against Bradley, of Peoria when the Frosh went to de- feat 20 to 14 with Malcolm Laing making two touchdowns, and " Sage " McCon- nell kicking the extra points. The second game was against Knox, which ended in a 6 to 6 tie, with McMillan scoring the only touchdown. Numerals were awarded to the following men: K. Baird, R. Brimmer, R. Burkhart, W. Dodds, W.

Two Burlington teams provided the season ' s first opposition, the Burling- ton Y. M. C. A. quintet bowing after a stiff battle on the Monmouth floor and Burlington Junior College having little better luck the following week when the squad invaded Iowa soil. Ozburn led the Scot attack in both games, getting 18 points in the first and 20 in the second. Jack Nuding collected 1 3 points to lead the Red and White to victory in the third game, against Parsons, but the following week Beloit scored a Midwest Conference victory over Smiley ' s crew by finishing on the long end of an 18-16 score. Iowa Wesleyan then fell before the Scot attack, 41 to 29, as Ozburn col- lected 16 points. The next week Carroll College of Waukesha, Wis., invaded Monmouth gym, but was turned back by a 27 to 22 score in one of the year ' s most exciting games. Knox took advantage of its chances frcm the free throw line to eke out vic- tory in the next game. An invasion of Bradley on the following week proved disastrous, the Tech quintet running up a 35 to 24 triumph. Coe fell short in a last-half rally and went down to defeat in another Mid- west game, 36 to 27, on the Monmouth floor. The Scots kept up the good work in their next game and handed Augustana a 32 to 15 drubbing, representing the peak of the season so far as smooth, effective play was concerned. Page Sixty-nii The Red and White was forced into an overtime period before coming out victorious in the next game, against Carthage at Monmouth. The situation was repeated again a few nights later in the Galesburg Armory when the Scots gained sweet revenge over Knox by handing the Siwash a 32-30 trimming. Donaldson of Knox had a chance to win the game for his team in the closing seconds, but missed a free throw. Harry Mead, sixfoot, 1 0 ' 2 inch center, helped Augustana even matters with Smiley ' s team on the local floor, controlling the ball to a good extent as the Vikings won, 34 to 30. Carthage also avenged a previous defeat, winning by a 33 to 27 margin when the Scots journeyed to the southern Illinois town. Cornell eked out a thrilling 30 to 29 victory as Stiii, substitute center, dropped in a free throw in the last 1 seconds of play. A reorganized team gave Bradley- Tech a courageous battle the next week, but the Indians worked a little too smoothly and took home a 36 to 30 triumph. An unsuccessful road trip into Iowa wound up the season. In the first game Bobby Woll scored 1 7 points, but Chet Good of Coe did better than that by accumulating 24, and the Cedar Rapids five won by a score of 50 to 32. The following night Cornell took a 43 to 25 verdict, as Woll and Joe Meyer tied for high point honors with seven apiece to close their collegiate careers. Letters were awarded to Bobby Woll, Joe Meyer, Jack Nuding, Don Ir- win, Clarence Patterson and Bob McConnell. Jack Ozburn, who with Bert Minton was dismissed from the squad in the second semester for infraction of training rules, was given the center position en the all-state team. I ' uiic S. ' vt-ntN Freshmen Basketball Freshman basketball players served the same purpose as the football men that is to provide some scrimmage for the Varsity. The Freshmen this year suc- ceeded in giving the Varsity some good competition which enabled the upper classmen to get in shape. The Freshmen played four games this year, which is permitted under con- ference rules, Two games were played with Knox, and two with the Roosevelt Military Academy of Aledo. The Frosh lost both games with Knox, and won both games from Roosevelt. The following freshmen received numerals: H. Taylor, V. Van Dewoestine, G. McConnell, R. Reid, R. Paulson, E. Fairman, R. Murray, R. Brimmer, G. Elliott, C. Gardner. Page Seventy- The Athletic Board of Control The Athletic Board of Control directs the general policies of the Monmouth College Athletic Association. It approves the intercollegiate schedules, makes the awards for varsity and freshman competition, and oversees the financial transac- tions of the athletic department. The board is composed of Coach Hart, S. R. Toussaint, Dr. Graham, Dr. Sherrick, Max Turnbull, Dr. McMichael, Don Irwin, Orland Hamilton, and E. A. McMillan. The " M " Club The " M " Club embodies in itself the spirit of those principles which are highest in the promotion of general well being on Monmouth ' s campus. In order to achieve membership in this organization, one must earn the award of an " M " in any major sport and also live up to the ideals of the club. The ideals are, good sportsmanship, ideal living, clean speech, high scholarship, and fidelity to the traditions of Old M. C. Pape Seventy-two Baseball Monmouth College has a good record in baseball the past few years and the 1934 team has hopes of repeating. The line-up that Coach Smiley used in the first two games appears to be Tinker pitching, Reid catching, Meyer on first, Akers at second, Pogue at third, Woll at short, Robb in left, Heil in center, and Lucas in right. Substitutes that have been out all year to give some practice for the varsity are, Hutchison, Nuding, and Herriot. Other men out, but are not being used on the trips are Acheson, Patterson, Sam Akers, McMaster, Fromm, Speer, an .1 Clarke. The first game of the season was with Missouri University and was won by Monmouth, fcore 8 to 1 . The second game was against Illinois College at Jacksonville and ended in a 10 to 5 defeat in a slugfest. Monmouth has nine more games to be played. iki id Page Seventy-three Track Monmouth College opened her track activities with the Armour Tech. In- door meet at Chicago. Coach Hart took six men to the meet, while one man placed. Don Irwin received a second in the 440. Hugh Matchett ran in the Central A. A. U. the night before and placed fifth in the 1 ,000 meter run. The second meet was the Little Nineteen Track and Field Meet at North Central (Indoors). Monmouth placed in four events. Dick Grills placed fourth in the mile, Don Irwin got fifth in the 440, Olenick took fifth in the shot-put, while the 8-1 1 mile relay team placed fifth. The third meet for the locals was the Quadrangular between the Univer- sity of Chicago, Knox, Bradley, and Monmouth at Monmouth. The meet was won overwhelmingly by Chicago, but Monmouth came through in the relay to beat Bradley out for third place. Top Row — Winthrop, Mcr., Smith, Hart. Ccach. Bottom Row— La Marshall, Bostwtck. Kennedy, Templeton, Meyers, Olenick, Winbigler. :aon, Irwin, Barnes. McKinley, Grills, Matchett, McConnell. Page Seventy-four owimmmg Swimming is fast becoming a popular sport at Monmouth as the locals par- ticipated in four meets this year. The first meet was an invitational at the Ke- wanee Y. M. C. A. in which several of the local tank stars competed. The second meet was a dual meet between Knox and Monmouth. Knox wen by winning the final medley relay, making the final score 36 to 33. Myers and Marshall of Monmouth had placed one-two in the diving to tie up but the relay team lost. The third meet was a triangular affair since Augustana did not show up, with Bradley, Monmouth, and Macomb competing. It was another case of losing a meet by losing the relay as Bradley won the meet with 46 points, Mon- mouth was second with 43, and Macomb third with 12. The climax of the season was the Little 1 9 Swimming meet which was held at North Central on the same week end as the Track meet. Monmouth suc- ceeded in placing fourth as Myers won thirds in the backstroke and diving, Pat- ton winning a fourth in the free style, and the free style relay team placing fourth, and the medley relay team taking third. Pa e Seventy-fi ' Intramural Coach Hart is responsible for building up Monmouth ' s intramural program. Hart has worked incessantly each year since he came to Monmouth so that it is possible for every man to compete in some sport or another. A trophy is presented to the organization that wins each sport. At the end of the year, an intramural trophy is given to the team that has made the most points during the year according to the intramural plan. The sports that are played in intramural are: touch football, volleyball, basketball, indoor and out- door track, swimming, baseball, and tennis. The function of the intramural department has been to encourage the entire male student body to compete in some organized sport, and to instill into every student that does compete the qualities of fair play and good sportsmanship. The first intramural competition was the touch football. The third year of the touch football found the race between three organizations. The Tekes finally won out, with the Beta Kappas second, and the Bears not far behind for third place. The Tekes followed their win in football with a win in volleyball as they scored 106! 2 points from their victories and points obtained from the men com- peting. The Beta Kappas were second again, while the Phi Kaps beat the Bears out for third. The next branch of the intramural program was basketball. The Bears won this part of the intramural program for the second straight year as they had all the ineligibles playing with them and ran through the schedule with little com- petition. Pay:e Seventy-: The Tekes placed second in the basketball with the Beta Kappas third, but the Tekes came back to form in the next division which was swimming. The Beta Kappas were second, while the Bears and the Phi Kaps tied for third po- sition. The Tekes had twice as many points as second place winners. The Beta Kappas led by one point after the indoor track had been run off with the Bears their closest competitor with the Tekes and T. U. O. tied for third. The B. K. squad had 61% while the Bears had 60%. The outdoor track totals will be added to these later in this month as soon as it is held. As the " Ravelings " goes to press just three intramural baseball games have been played. The Phi Kaps, Tekes, and Bears have won over the Commons Club, Tiny Tots, and Beta Kappas respectively. Gardner and " Cactus " Mc- Connell resorted to a pitching duel in the Bears victory over the B. K. Below is the chart showing the intramural standing to date: B. K. T K. E. T. U. O. Phi Kap.

A busy schedule is planned through fall, winter and spring to provide opportunities for recreation and friendly rivalry. Hockey holds the center of attention in the fall. Although usually a new game to many girls, it is highly popular after a few games are played. Volleyball is played for a short time before basketball, which is probably the most popular sport on the program, begins. Practices are held in the little gym at regular periods, and once a week the " big gym " is pressed into service. With the coming of spring, hiking, roller skating, soccer and baseball become prominent. Archery also comes in for its share of attention, and a section of the athletic field is turned into a range for devotees of the sport to sharpen heir skill with the bow. Tennis has long been a favorite sport with women of the college and the tournament held every year arouse considerable interest. The four courts are kept in tip-top shape for those who prefer this form of activity in sports. Horse-back riding, too, has its adherents, many of whom take regular jaunts in and around the campus. Page Seventy- HOCKEY SWIMMING RECUPERATION Pase Eighty ACTIVITIES Shadowy noo s — quiet walls — a burst of melodious harmony — the pipes — the console — and the murmur of voices — chapel will hold fond future memories. May Fete The 1933 May Fete served as a climax to most of the college activities of the Spring. The exception occurred and a balmy spring evening helped to en- hance the atmosphere of the occasion. The customary winding of the May Pole and the much awaited Processional were immensely enjoyed by the huge crowd attending. The Queen, Minna Fricke, and the Chancellor, Brownlowe Speer, chosen by the male and female students of the College respectively, were a charming and extremely popular couple. National Collegiate Players Founded: University of Wisconsin, 1919 Established : Monmouth College, 1929 26 Active Chapters OFFICERS President David Murray Secretary-Treasurer Lillian Gibson Monmouth College is very fortunate in having such an organization as this on her campus. It is one of three in the State of Illinois. Membership in National Collegiate Players is based upon a certain number of points earned in Crimson Masque and upon fitness to uphold the ideals of the organization. National Col- legiate Players successfully staged Moliere ' s classic, Tariuffe, during the past year. l ' a.w Kiu-hly-tw Cri mson M asque Founded : Monmouth College, 1925 OFFICERS President Gordon Winbigler Secretary Jane Hoyman Treasurer Harold Irwin Chairman Program Committee Helen Christy Publicity Manager Lillian Gibson Electrician Charles Fraser Faculty Advisor Miss Ruth Williams Front Row— Robertson.

On March 1 6th, the Little Theatre was the scene of the gay, colorful French court of the seventeenth century when the National Collegiate Players interpreted Moliere ' s famous classic, Tartuffe. To better carry out the atmosphere in which the play was written and first presented, special costumes were secured and the characters appeared in dress corresponding minutely to the attire worn during Moliere ' s time.

The story relates how the Countess Jorbek finds her sister, Mrs. Vail, at an opera matinee after years of separation. The drama was cleverly directed and presented by Morton Hickman. " JUDGE LYNCH " By Rogers " Judge Lynch, " a play with its scene located in the mountains of West Vir- ginia, was dramatically presented. The story centers around the lynching of a " nigger " , who is later discovered to be innocent of the crime for which he was killed. Miss Shank, as the director, deserves much praise for the skillful pro- duction. " A WEDDING " By Kirkpatrick Hilarious comedy, good characterization, and surprising situations made the production of " A Wedding " a most entertaining play. A stubborn bridegroom refuses to get married until he finds his collar button. When it can ' t be found a lover ' s quarrel ensues. Finally events bring about a surprising proposal and the wedding ceremony is about to be started when the play comes to an end. David Murray directed this production. Page Eighty-six " PORTRAIT OF A GENTLEMAN IN SLIPPERS " By A. A. Milne The action of this short drama centered around a magic mirror presented to King Hilary which enabled him to see himself as he really was. Repelling as the face seemed to the king, it had its attractions for his bride-to-be. Morton Hick- man played the part of King Hilary, with Margaret Grier as Princess Amaril. David Murray carried the comedy role, that of the king ' s body servant, while Marvin Jackson portrayed the stranger who brought the mirror to the king. Les- ter Fulton was the director. " HIGHNESS " By Ruth Giorloff The emotional twists and the darker side of the Russian revolution were ably brought out in this production. Raymond Steffan and Betty McClenahan played the two parts of the long-separated lovers who were united by a queer coinci- dence, and who were aided in escaping from Russia by Anna Borodin, a scrub woman, portrayed by Margaret Jean Loehr. Charles Grafft was a Red soldier, bold in appearance, but whose true character and cowardice were revealed in the crisis at the end of the play. Ruth Swanson directed the enterprise. Page Eii!

Irwin was the so-called " body-guard " for a party of American tourists in Italy. The part of an Italian innkeeper was played by Winbigler. Complications ensued when George Myers arranged a fake bandit raid to further his romance with Ger- trude Reeve, one of the girls in the party. Other parts were played by Eleanor Gehr, Alleyne Norris, and Virginia Shank. 1 he director was Harlan Lance.

Women ' s Debate The women ' s debate season was the most successful one in several years. In the state league contests, three out of six decision debates were won on the question, ' Resolved: That the Federal Government should make substantial grants to public elementary and secondary education. " Throughout the season, teams were encountered from DeKalb, Wheaton, Rosary. North Central, Augustana, Greenville, MacMurray, Knox, and Cornell. The nine members of the squad were Nathalie Lytle, Jane Hoyman, Earla Hoyman. Eleanor McLaughlin, Sara- belle McCleery, Nancy Gillham, Dorothy Maynard, Eina Ryan, and Eva Reid. State.l E. Ho v_.i » - B H BT . » ' J IB 4| meuJ SLmL ltt " %mW A C -V. Men ' s Debate The men ' s debate squad was quite successful this year in spite of the handi- caps of much inexperienced material. Debating on the question, " Resolved: That the powers of the President of the United States should be substantially in- creased as a settled policy. " they won decisions over Knox, Greenville, Shurtleff, and North Central. Debates were lost to Augustana, Bradley, and Lake For- est. The encounter with Knox was interesting in that it was the first debate that Monmouth has had with that institution in more than twenty years. Non-decision debates were held with Augustana, Macomb, Burlington Jun- ior College, North Central, Illinois Wesleyan, Eureka, and Cornell. Wilbur Lester and John Moffett composed the affirmative team. John Owen Allan Millikan, William Dodds, and David Byler made up the negative team. Page Ninety-on Pi Kappa Delta Convention Monmouth College was well represented in the National Pi Kappa Delta convention held in Lexington, Kentucky, this year from the second to the sixth of April. More than seven hundred delegates were present representing one hun- dred and twenty-one schools from nearly forty states. Gertrude White placed high in the women ' s oratorical contest. After speak- ing four times, Miss White reached the finals, gaining fifth place in a field of ap- proximately fifty entrants. The women ' s debate team, composed of Nathalie Lytle, Eva Reid, and Jane Hoyman, won four victories and suffered one defeat to win the right to com- pete in the quarter-finals as one of the sixteen teams which survived the preliminary rounds out of sixty-seven starting teams. In this round they dropped the decision to the University of Tulsa and were eliminated. The question debated was, " Resolved: That the powers of the President of the United States should be sub- stantially increased as a settled policy. " Miss Lytle debated both sides of the question, aided by Miss Hoyman on the affirmative and by Miss Reid on the negative. Monmouth was represented by Wilbur Lester in the men ' s extemporaneous speaking contest. All of Monmouth ' s honors at the convention did not result from the effort; of her students, however, for Professor S. R. Toussaint was elected first vice presi dent of the national organization. Professor Toussaint is not only capable of turning out able forensic representatives but possesses the ability to rank high among the leaders of Pi Kappa Delta, honorary forensic society. Page Ninety-two rorensics Forensics have meant a great deal to the Monmouth campus this year. It was great fun as well as hard work. The " gang " of ten that went to Kentucky gained, besides their valuable experience, a delightful education in thoroughbred horses, blue grass, and southern dialect. The meeting of people from wide-spread geographical points, but with a common basis of interest, sharpened the competi- tion and lent to the material development of all present. One value highly prized and common to all affiliated with forensic work was the friendship with " Toots " and his family. He offered not only his guidance and experience but a comradeship which was deeply appreciated. Pane Ninety-thr The College Choir The College A Capella Choir has met with much favorable comment since its organization a year ago. The chorus is composed of college and conservatory students and meets two hours each week for rehearsal. Music for the Vesper ser- vices held each month is furnished by the choir, and eight members of the organi- zation sing a " call to worship " at the beginning of each daily chapel service. Under the direction of Mr. Shaver, the choir has sung in several of the Mon- mouth churches, and in May sang at Burlington. A sacred concert will be given in the college auditorium on the Sabbath evening before Commencement.

The program presented in October by the famous Kryl Band, with Bo- humir Kryl, noted cornetist, conducting, appealed to townspeople, school children, college students, and musicians alike. The second outstanding concert was that given by Dalies Franz, brilliant young pianist, a pupil of Guy Meier, and a recent graduate of the University of Michigan. He delighted his audience with his artistic interpretation and remark- able technique. After playing in Monmouth, Mr. Franz appeared as soloist with the Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston Symphonies, and at the present time is creating quite a furor in the musical world. Two outstanding recitals during the year were presented by Monmouth ' s duo-pianists, Edna Browning Riggs and Grace Gawthrop Peterson. 1 he first recital presented in November consisted in part of a Bach two-piano number and several delightful Chopin and Brahms waltzes. Their second recital, given in April, was composed entirely of Rachmaninoff compositions. Don McCray and nine members of the Girls ' Glee Club assisted in the presentation of this interest- ing program of Russian music. Capac ty audiences enjoyed both recitals. Choral Society During the Christmas season, the Choral Society, composed of one hundred voices and under the direction of Professor T. H. Hamilton, gave its annual pre- sentation of Handel ' s celebrated oratorio, " The Messiah " . Eight soloists and a sixteen-piece orchestra assisted the chorus in the rendition of this renowned work.

I— No. 1 JUNE 1934 Price; Priceless SENATE SCORES SENSATIONALISM ! ! ! COED GRIDDERS WILL PLAY KNOX Coeds of the institution have pone into strict training in prep- aration for their football game with the Siwash next fall. So much promising material was found among the fairer members of the student body, that the Dianas will league together next fall into an eleven which will meet a similar team of Siwash damsels in the tra- ditional struggle for the Bronze Fraternity pin. Coach Hays has not picked her lineup as yet, but the campus coaches are unanimous in picking Lil Gibson for the quarterback post. She has the number of everyone on the campus, and it shouldn ' t take her long to figure out the Siwash signals — and with her throwing ability, she will be a valuable as- set. The fullback berth wil be held down by Mary Miller, big and bux- om lassie from up near the watch woiks. Helen Christy will un- doubtedly captain the team from her position at left end — she always enjoys taking the Field. An up and coming member of the freshman squad who may break into the var- sity ranks is Ruskin. who will oc- cupy a tackle position regularly, unless her propensity for holding draws too many penalties. At the ether tackle will be Krasity, the strong and silent — with her experi- ence at getting fraternity pins she will be invaluable to the Highland belles. The game will be played in fif- teen periods of four minutes each, enabling the players to replenish their makeup at the end of each period. Severe penaties have been drafted for all biting and scratch- ing, although hair-pulling will be permissable. Knox plans to employ Empress Eugenie head gears, while the Scots will take the field in trousers of green silk organdie, with red and white taffeta jerseys. WINBIGLER CAPTURES CROWN Wins Bullthrowing Trophy With a last minute spurt that left him practically breathless, Win- dy Winbigler succeeded in nosing out the former champion bull-tosser Hooey Matchett, Chicago ' s Silver- tongued Southsider, and thereby won for himself possession of the much-coveted brass banana, em- blematic of victory. The ex-cham- pion had prepared a brilliant ora- tion, entitled " How I Was Spiked by Hornboestel, " but the brilliant peroration of Winbigler ' s, " My Life, Past, Present, and Future, " proved too big an obstacle for him to over- come. The contest was close throughout and at times the judges were fairly swamped by the abundance and fe- cundity of the contestants ' remarks. Excitement was rife for a time when it appeared that a " dark horse, " Bob Lashley, was in the running for the title. Lashley ' -. theme was, " A Big-city Lad Looks at Small Town Life. " He was fin- ally eliminated because of his rela- tive youth and inexperience, but those who know predict a very bril- liant future for him in this field. He is expected to become one of the greatest champions in the his- tory of the institution. Professors Maynard and Robin- son were entered in the contest, but a last minute ruling debarred them from competition. Judges of the contest opined that these two gentlemen were to be ineligible for any competition until they cleared themselves of the charges of pro- fessionalism which hang around them. " Ycur overcoat is certainly loud. " " It ' s all right when I put on my muffler. " POTTERS ETHICS COURSE BARRED After a startling series of ex- poses, the Monmouth College Sen- ate ruled that Dean Potter should abandon her " Ethics of Living " course, which has been the feature of each college year heretofore. After hearing all the evidence on the case, collected in an astonish- ingly novel method, by students " planted " in the classroom, it was decided that the ultra-liberalism and extremely unconventional atti- tude taken in the course was not to be tolerated any longer upon the Monmouth campus. Among the startling disclosures in the investigation came when it was found that a number of stu- dents who had taken the course had entirely lost their belief in the value of the stork as a domestic pet. Like- wise it was found that although the restricted to the juniors and who were harly past the sophomoric stage, their minds being relatively immature to receive such advanced and danger- ous knowledge. No statement could b? obtained from Miss Potter, and it was not known just how -he will rea t to the situation. Long a thinker of the liberal school, it is expected that some sort of an outburst mav b? expected when she learns of this curtailment of her radical activi- ties. It is doubtful if she will stand for any such restriction put upon her teachings, and she may insist upon continuing the course, with the provision that the membership be composed of graduate students over twenty-five years of age. Barron — Where do you get your auto accessories ? Brownlec— Oh, I just honk my horn and smile, and they climb into the car. We should be kind to the blind, but it is hard to do if the rascals insist on umpiring a ball game. Page One Hundred Ele Page Two THE CAMPUS SNOOZE WILL MOVE THE ATHLETIC FIELD Borgrum A. Bloop, second nation- al field secretary of the Egyptian Moving and Construction Company, was on the campus last week to in- spect the athletic plant, and lay plans for its removal to the south- ern part of the state. As a matter of convenience, the track, diamond and gymnasium will be carted southward to " Little Egypt " so that our athletes will play in a more homelike atmosphere. It is be- lieved that one of the causes of the " Fighting Scot ' s " defats, which of course come few and far be- tween, comes as a result of a nos- talgia which periodically afflict; our strong, handsome athletes. Con- sequently, all home games will be played hereafter at the new loca- tion. Classrooms will be erected at one end of the new field, so that no time need be wasted in trips to and from the campus proper. Exams and grades will be given out every three years.

Hundreds of hospitals have ceased to func- §! tion. Dozens of churches, where people have worshipped for generations, | ' have become only a landmark and a memory; in the rear of the church — the grave yard, with its tall waving grasses, the only indication that once here worshipped the flower of the community. Hundreds AND Thousands of COLLEGE ALUMNI have as their Alma Mater a pile of stones or a group of empty buildings — a grave yard of memories of happy songs and carefree col- lege days. MONMOUTH COLLEGE HAS STOOD THE TEST— The college halls will for many years re-echo the sound of youthful voices. But this past two years it has cost many a sleepless night — many a dark hour to pilot your college through these days of depression. Do you appreciate it, or do you think the college has been greatly favored by your presence? BE LOYAL and proud of your college becouse she has been tried and been equal to the test. Talk up your college — urge your friends to come here — one of the best of the Middle Western schools. The strength of her program has not been weakened by the depression.

For Use by Monmouth Students When Talking Monmouth to Their Friends 1. EDUCATIONAL STANDING— Only one-fourth of the colleges and universities I of America are on the approved list of the Association of American Universities, g Monmouth ' s name is on this list and also on the list of every other important edu cational association. 2. EQUIPMENT AND ENDOWMENT— Monmouth has twelve well equipped build- I ings on an attractive thirty-acre campus. Monmouth ' s gymnasium and athletic j= field provide an equipment for sports unexcelled in the Mid-West. Her endow- — ment of two million dollars is much more than that of most colleges of her size and type. 3. CHRISTIAN ATMOSPHERE— The aim of the faculty and students of Mon- mouth is to maintain an atmospher e which is friendly, democratic, inspiring, and favorable to the development of Christian ideals. |«l 4. ACHIEVEMENT OF GRADUATES— Monmouth graduates are in leading posi- tions in business, education, government, journalism, law, medicine, ministry, social service, and many other fields. 5. COSMOPOLITAN QUALITY— Monmouth is not like a local college. She is free from the provincialism which is likely to develop in an institution in which nearly all of the students come from the vicinity of the college. Last year, stu- dents came to Monmouth from twenty-four States. 6. ACCESSIBILITY— Monmouth ' s location on the main line of the C. B. Q., the M. St. L. and a north and south division of the C. B. Q., makes access by- rail convenient. Also, Monmouth is on four important State and National highways. 7. LOW COST — Not many colleges of Monmouth ' s equipment and educational stand- ing have kept their charges for tuition and fees to a figure so low as Monmouth ' s. 8. A SMALL AND PERSONAL COLLEGE— At Monmouth a student is encour- I aged to do his best because his work and achievements are known to the whole H college community. Tht student retains his individuality, he is not lost in the g crowd. Bl 1 9. SUPERIOR TEACHING FORCE— There is an unusual stability to the Mon- mouth faculty and long tenure of office is the rule. Monmouth teachers are well trained. About half of the heads of departments have the Ph. D. degree and others have the equivalent in training and experience. As an evidence of the breadth of culture of the Monmouth faculty, it may be remarked that one-third of the Monmouth teachers have studied or have taught in European universities, and several have had extensive foreign travel. 10. BROAD PROGRAM OF EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES— Monmouth ' s | good record in athletics is well known to high school students. She is equally — successful in forensice, dramatics, music, journalism, and other fields. m m For Information Address m m 1 PRESIDENT T. H.
