Business Jnanacfer Miss Mary McCoy Jjeolcati ication It is a well known phrase in academic circles that it is the business of the librarian not to know everything but only to know where to find it. But that is the least of the qualities to be found in our beloved Miss Mary McCoy. In her past eleven years in the stacks of our library she has always been willing to lend an ear and give advice to any bewildered freshy or upperclassman, who will step into her office and let his hair down. Her student library staffs can never forget the happy hours spent under her kindly supervision. And in the spring her library is always a little brighter with a bouquet of flowers. So to you, Miss McCoy, we the class of ' 48 extend our thanks for a job that will always be well done as long as you shall be with us at Monmouth College.

This season held many eventful thrill packed evenings as our Fighting Scots fought through to victory. Loud cheers rang forth from the gym. Tense spectators clenched their fists and sat through the exciting games as in the Knox-Monmouth game above. Cheers led by the M. C. Pep Club still re-echo the old fight song and " the school with the spirit, the school with the rep " [26] Roscoe W. Scott B.S., A.M. Director of Physical Education Glenn E. Robinson B.S., A.M. Instructor in Physical Education Robert George Woll B.S., M.S. Director of Athletics Monmouth College again sponsored a well rounded program of varsity athletics, consisting of Football, Cross Country, Swimming, Bas- ketball, Baseball, Golf, Tennis, and Track, as well as a full intramural program giving every male student an opportunity to take part in some form of competitive recreation. The coaching staff consisting of Bobby Woll, Jelly Robinson, and Roscoe Scott did a remarkable job in turning out some of the finest teams in M. C. history. For the past seven years Coach Robinson has been turning out tough gridiron elevens, with the exception of the time spent with the armed forces. Coach Woll has been mentor of the basketball and track squads for the past twelve years, as well as backfield coach in football. Coach Scott is a newcomer to our campus this season, coming formerly from Carthage High School. He has done a splendid job as swimming and baseball mentor along with his position of line coach in football. T27] HN i ? © a ft Row I: B. Turner, Capt., R. Petherbridge, J. Lemon, P. Mcllvain, L.

The last game of the season with the Scots defeating Knox won them fifth place berth in the conference, to say nothing of reclaiming the Turkey. Two Monmouth gridders were on the conference all-star roster, Tabby Talkin, and Bob McMasters. The team was co-captained by John Hahn and Jack Jaquet. Letter winners on the squad were Bob Feehley, Dave Stone, Ronald Ravenhill, Art Lauer, Don Armstrong, Bill Ray, Bob Rosenbaum, John Tarkington, Blake Turner, Bill Ray, Harry Van Fleet, Roy Pether- bridge, Keith Doanne, Bob McMasters, Paul Mcllvain, Tabby Talkin, John Perry, and John Worley.

Monmouth players are Trotter (41), White (48), Mcllvain (47), Armstrong (40), and Talkin (58). Knox men are Pogue (shooting), Crawford (34), and Stevens (54). Monmouth and Knox presented the most interesting game of the season to a capacity crowd in the Galesburg Armory January 29th, when the Fighting Scots dropped their third consecutive game, 70-65, after two overtime periods. Naturally it was a hotly-contested struggle, but neither the exces- sive amount of fouling or frequent examples of poor officiating could distract from the color of the contest that kept the fans on the edge of their seats from the tip-off to the final gun. Monmouth jumped to an early lead and set the pace until late in the first half when Knox tied the struggle up via the free throw line at 26 all, with 1 minute and 15 seconds left to play. [30] ig fb- fj Varsity JjasketbaLL The 1946-47 quint placed fourth in the conference, and broke some records in doing so. Scoring 1,126 points for the season, they are the first Monmouth team to score more than a thousand points for a season. In de- feating Hope College 84-60 they set a new team scoring record. The prev- ious record was set in 1943-44 when Monmouth scored 81 points against Western Teachers of Macomb. Donny Armstrong broke the individual scoring record previously held by Gordy Huber at 263 points for the season by racking up a total of 273 points. Huber ' s game average still holds at 14.6, although Armstrong almost equalled it with 14.2. The all time high, how- ever, is held by Lowell " Curly " Johnson who averaged 19 points a game in 1943, but can hardly be called a school record as he only played in 1 1 games. 1946-47 Basketball Season: Monmouth Opp. Alumni .. 44 28 Parsons _ 62 34 Burlington Jr. College 64 42 Grinnell . 66 51 Iowa Wesleyan ... 55 36 Augustana . 53 41 Parsons .. 59 37 Lawrence _ 45 59 Ripon .. 54 58 Knox ... 65 70 Monmouth Cornell 60 Coe .. . 37 Grinnell 65 Carleton 65 Knox _ 57 Carthage — 60 Augustana ... .. 59 Beloit . _ 70 Hope .. .. 84 Opp. 46 47 45 63 60 41 55 67 60 [3H goif Opponent Monmouth Knox _ ._ ll 2 6] 2 Bradley _ 11 10 Knox ... ..

" Life " photog- raphers were here for the event, but for some odd reason failed to print their shots. The all-school dance, sponsored by the Sophomores and dec- orated by Bill Faverty, was one of the big events of the year. The class lost one able secretary, Anita Madden, who changed her name to Lillig during Christmas vacation. With half their college career behind them, the class of ' 49 looks forward to the two remaining years. 1st Row: E. Nicolaides, H. Stone, G. Reed, L. Smith. 2nd Row: W. McGaughy, B. Hottle, J.

Yessir, the first big post-war Freshman class really made the rest of the campus sit up and take notice before they finished this year. Of course they didn ' t do much when it came to downing the Sophomores — but THE POLE WAS GREASED. But they removed their hats at the half of the Knox game in the true Monmouth tradition and came up with a swell dance at the Parochial School that same night. And when it came time for the Fresh- man play in April, Bruce Hanson showed the rest of the campus that a Freshman is just as good as they come when you meet " The Man Who Came to Dinner. " Row 1: J.

The Alpha Xi Delta ' s on Monmouth campus are extremely active. They participate and present many things of importance such as lectures, dances, meetings, and the annual tea for the faculty and alumnae. Among other interesting things, the chapter has adopted a family in Nordwych, Holland, and is sending them, in reciprocation for the tulips in front of Wallace Hall, cartons of clothes and other necessities of life.

Early in the year correspondence began between the local group and A.T.O. , one of the prominent national fraternities. After a year in which members of the various A.T.O. chapters visited the local frater- nity, and upon completion of a formal petition, Phi Kappa Pi was ac- cepted as the ninety-eighth chapter of A.T.O. fraternity. The members look back with pride on their history as Phi Kap ' s and with the same pride, look forward to their future as A.T.O. ' s.

Urckestra Under the able baton of Mr. Loya, the college orchestra keeps alive and kicking the most widely known of the fine arts — symphonic music. With tonal quality to spare, this organization presented two concerts which drew lavish praise from all quarters. In addition, Mr. Loya moved over to the concert-master ' s chair to assist Mr. Shaver with " The Messiah " and the operetta, " Chimes of Normandy. " Beethoven ' s Fifth and Jass Piczicata for strings were both played with ease by this versatile group. Highlighting the year ' s repertoire, Amelita Meier mounted the elevated piano bench and bowled them over with Gershwin ' s " Rhapsody in Blue. " Though the equipment at hand is far from adequate, Mr. Loya must be praised for his direction of this excellent musical organization.

The new students were at somewhat of a loss to find themselves being dragged through the city jail, the theaters and most of the college dormitories. Giddy conversation from the upper-classman was to be encountered at each change of partners. The evening ended with a huge bonfire at the rear of Alice Winbigler Hall, followed by cheers led by the pep club and songs led by Gracie Peterson. By the end of the affair everybody felt like sleeping for days while classes con- tinued the following morning, bright and early at 7:45!

This bigger and better show than ever included a cast of forty students. New stage sets and new costumes were lush with a background of beautiful lighting.
