CQLLEGE, CTCERQ, TLLTNQTS ln sincere appreciation of the faith- ful services so willingly given and the much-needed advice so kindly ex- tended, We gratefully dedicate this book to Mr. C. Clifton Aird and Mr. Douglas Finlayson, faculty members of the college social committee, without Whom no social affair would have been a success, to Whom most of the ICATIQ pleasant memories now retained by many students are re- sponsible: and Who from the first were present advising, lead- ing, giving us confidence, thereby Winning the gratitude, respect, trust, and admiration of all who know them, students and faculty members alike. May this dedication convey our grattude for their loyal and devoted Work in maintaining the college social standards at their usual high level and may it also represent our recogni- tion oi their outstanding leadership in the interests of the school.

HRUDKFL L- T- SKINNER Superintendent Business Manager In an office of quiet dignity we find the superintendent of our college. An amiable man, who is anxious to be friends with all the students. A man who is only too willing to cooperate with them in their plans and activities, and who encourages them in all they do. A man who can guide school affairs through troublesome times, and keep them on a non-political basis. A man who can keep his head in a time of crisis, and can hold out for what he believes is right. A man who while in college enjoyed knowing people of all kinds, and who has the ability to get along with them. To Dr. l-lrudka we extend our thoughtful appreciation forall he has done. Shouts and bursts of raucous laughter in college campus. The door of the college office opens, and a man strolls out, towards the group of boisterous students. A mild suggestion, then little crinkly wrinkles around his eyes and a slow shy smile. A clever remark by one of the students, a dryly humorous retort by the man. Now the fun is on again, but this time it is more subdued. The man comes to admonish and stays to laugh. This man, in answer to our query, replies, "Yes, modestly, I state the truth-for me the most from Princeton is- l am a Princeton man-inspired by its famous spirit, the honor system, Woodrow Wilson as a teacher, the comradeship of men, the ideal of scholar- athlete-gentleman, and the eternal loyalty to 'Old Nassau'." lt is to Mr. Spelman, our beloved Dean of Men, that we pledge our love and gratitude for his humor, his friendliness, and for his just being "Spel." E Mo12i'oN tumor cot I F VV. B. SPELMAN G. I. WALKER Dean of Men Dean of Women A man of quiet efficiency is our former Business Manager. One who lets students fully explain their ideas, and who then carefully and tactfully pointed out to them why their propositions were impractical. A man who was sympa- thetic with student activities, but who saw to it that no plan went through which would not fit in with the educational ideal of the school. Thi sman has recently been called to Washington to serve in a government office. ln our farewell to Mr. Skinner, we thank him for his faithful intelligent, and helpful service to our school and to us, and wish him the very best of luck in his new work. ln an office we see a woman sitting behind a cluttered desk. A timid girl enters, and is immediately set at her ease, by a welcoming smile and a cheery greeting. An attentive silence while an explanation is made, a thoughtful moment of quietness, then a suggestion, a bit of advice, or a tactful reprimand. Now we glimpse her graciously pouring tea at one of the monthly affairs the women give. ln answer to our question this woman replied, "I learned in college that not all the information important to possess lay outside the covers of books, that l very much wanted the power to think straighty that l wanted to be one who could keep an open mind until all the evidence was in." For the latter we are grateful. And so, to Miss Walker, our Dean of Women, we give our heartfelt thanks for her helpfulness, her excellent judgment, her ability to look ahead, and her splendid gift of being able to tell a story well. ll gt.

That able Fighter of Wars, R. M. Hale, found out "just how many cents there are in a dollar." A noble bit of knowledge! That dash- ing Charley Nicholas found his music helped him to make social contacts, and Mr. Lundgren learned to do better the things he would have to do anyway. Note kiddies and benefit. Mr. Shelly found the be- ginnings of a preparation for living, and he was the only one to admit that in college he foundthe best girl in the world. Miss Ellis developed a great interest in animal and human behavior." And youngsters, guess what! Freddie Ericson says, "l learned in college the 'quotes' and footnote tech- nique which is the source of much joy to my stu- dents now." We have often wondered where he learned that. W. C. Stone found that the more he knew the more he didn't know. Rather discouraging, but we are undaunted. Mr. W. A. Richards learned to set up equations and to know the value of X. Miss Falls says, "Definitely, freedom from the pro- vincial point of view." Mr. Hainds appreciated the social contacts and the fun in extra-curricular activi- ties, and the training in how to do things in the cur- ricular. Bobby Teeter made friends, student, faculty and townsfolk. Mr. Pope experienced living with people not his relations. C-. L. Tucker made friends. Miss A. N. Tucker received the philosophy by which she lives. Mr. C. Clifton Aird enjoyed the contacts he made with books, special works, and instructors. We leave you to figure out just where he learned the jokes CPD. 13 THE CASE Tl-lE CAM Among the memories of our college days will be those of our instructors. We may not remember them all, but some certain actions will remain with us for a long long time. Will we ever forget Miss Darlington's persistent warnings in the library when we whispered some imperative message to the person next to us:5AMr. Al-lale telling and retelling his tall tales of the war: Mr. Thomas' amiable explanations to a restless class: Miss Bell's sweetness and readiness to smooth the way for us: Mr. Royce's willingness to see our side, and to let us try to prove him wrong: Mr. Zei- bell's'wholehearted refusals to let the fellows 'be excused from gym: Mr. l:'inlayson's ready smile and his admission that Mrs. Finlayson corrects his pa pers: Miss Callahan's "cracks" about modern youth, and heroriginal "Ya De Da Da": Mr. Aird's ability to get us all mixed up when he says "Answer wrong": Miss Morgan's ability to make assignments sound short and easy Cuntil we start to do theml: Mr. Ericson's inevitable jokes about every person and period of history covered in his classes: Mr. Spelman's weekly announcements in assembly, and his amicable and efficient secretary, Miss Bowes: Mr. Almer's delightful book reports and amusing selections read to us in class, and the favorite phrases "we maylassume, without loss of generality, that-": Mr. Richards "l happened to write aterm paper on that" Mr. Stone, Mr. Smith's inevitable "write on this question today," and Mr. Hunter's "now, the firm l worked for"? 14 VIERA VERSUS THE FACULTY ' 1 5 ' , .l..

' "The Pre-Meds have a dandy show up in the Zoology lab." "Make sure you see the Camera Club's exhibit. The pictures were taken, developed and printed by the students. They also made some beautiful enlargements and colored pictures. That really is an art." "You know, I never realized how varied the interests of the clubs were." "You can certainly take your pick of whatever you want to do. And you really get a good insight into the field in most of -, the clubs." "Have you ever stopped to realize how much more interesting our class work is because of things we learn in clubs." V "I always did like to join subject clubs, especially science ones." SECRE 1l'Where's Dorothy Doubek going in such a hurry, and what's all the fuss a out?" , "The Secretarial club is having 'CI party tonightp she's probably rather busy." "l 'met a couple of alumni who said something about the party, are they invited?" ' "I wouldn't doubt it. That's one of the nice things about that club-they keep in contact with graduates. The alumni bring back news of the business world and even help sudents get jobs sometimes." "They had a basketball tournament between the two groups this year, didn't they?" "Yes, and they went bowling and played ping-pong, mg," "Say, that's a good idea. More clubs ought to do that." "Oh, the Secretarial club has a number of good ideas. Last year they 0 Gauthier, Wasilek, Bouvia, Doubek Goranson, Elderkin,'Cor1ne1ly 0 Osmolak Hrubesh, Belsky, Polach, Haisman, Mur- phy, Daubek, Talman, Huml.

The selection comes in the' spring. Of course, only sophomores are eligible." ' A H "That's something like the regular Honor Society-at least in its standards." "Yes, but this is only for secretarial students."' "Didn't they put out some-sort of newspaper or magazine during the year?" "Yes. They call it 'Steno-Printsf lt contains original stories, jokes, and poems. They also write up summaries of their field trips." f 'Do they have field trips, too?" "Sure, and they have' demonstrations of the dictaphone, mimeograph, and other office machines. Sometimes successful business people give lectures for them." ' "Say, that certainly is an active club. They really get things done." IAL i"Yes, and from those like the Chess and Checker or Bowling clubs you learn things that are always fun to know, things that help you along socially." "I wonder which things we remember most, those learned in classes or out of them." "l believe our class work is a foundation and the other work we do supple- ments it and makes it more interesting." "Have you ever noticed that people usually remember the fun of college more than the drudgery of studying all the time?" . "Yes, when a couple of old grads get together they always talk about the fun they had getting the paper out or something like! that rather than of studies." g , - "I know one thing, I wouldn't think 'ofgoing through school without partici- pating in extra-curricular activities."

PRE-MED "What's this, another Pre-Med club field trip?" "They're certainly keeping up their rec- ord for being one of the most active clubs in school, aren't they?" "They've been going somewhere almost every week-end lately." I "Where're they going now?" "Speedway hospital. At the county hospi- tal a few weeks ago, they watched an op- eration and everything." "Who gives them all this pep, anyway?" "Bill Aten's president. I think he's prob- ably back 'of a lot of it." "They put on a swell assembly, didn't they?" "Was it that shadow skit? That sure was a clever piece of work." "The singers from North Central College were Good too." "I always like the Pre-Med exhibit for Open-house night. They make slides for microscopes, skin cats and everything." "Who's the adviser of that club?" "Mr. Shelley. I believe he organized it back in l925." "Say, that's an old club, isn't it?" COMMERCE "What did you think of that blonde who conducts the Commerce Club around the Northwestern University campus?" "Not bad, and she sure added to the in- terest and' impressiveness of the trip." "That tour must have raised the com- merce students' hopes, they went right out and secured a speaker, A. W. Hendrickson, who talked on investing the excess family income in securities." "Were you at the assembly when Tiben- sky and Mazunaitis did that man-on-the- street act. I thought that was pretty good." "They had some fun, I guess. Say what's this 'Aids of Ability' you hear so much about." y "Oh, that's the bulletin published by the Commerce Club and sent to employers. It's a method of securing positions for Com' merce Club grads." "Say, that's a really worthwhile piece of work. I bet that helps the students a lot." "lust being a member of the club helps them by increasing their understanding of the business world through personal contact with it." "That really makes it a practical club to join.

"That's probably an up-and-coming young chemist demonstrating something at the chemistry club meeting." :iWell, I hope it's successful, Whatever it is. "If anyone lives through all that, he de- serves success." "Let's go up and see what they're doing." "Well, I'll try anything once." "Say, they're not conducting any experi- ment-it's just a discussion of places to go for their next field trip." "They don't seem to mind the smoke in here." - "Oh, I suppose one gets used to it." "Is that Harvey Posvic who is president?" "I think so. Ed Koranda was president the first semester, I believe." "Say, from the Way they talk, that trip to the Universal Oil Company must have been interesting." "I'd have liked to see the Abbott labora- tories, too." y "Why, it's almost Worth taking chemistry to visit some of those places, isn't it?" "Oh, the club is open to anyone in- terested."

The Engineers' club plans a trip down there every year." "I bet they have a good time." "I Wouldn't doubt it. They usually go to Illinois and Wisconsin too. In that Way the boys get a chance to see What's ahead of them." "Is that all they do-learn what school is going to be?" "Oh, no, this last semester the program was tied up with the class of General En- gineering Problems. They learned a lot." "Mr. Pinlayson's the adviser, isn't he?" "Sure, They've had some interesting field trips besides those to the schools, too." "Where'd they go?" "They Went out to the Municipal Airport, Corn Products Refining Company, Universal Oil Company, and some other places." "The officers of that club have done a dandy job."

"Why, that's the Choral Club, haven't you heard them sing before? l believe a swell organization could develop out of that group." "Well, how long have they been or- ganized?" "lt was started last year by a mixed group, the majority having music courses, and they engaged Mr. l-laberman as their director. This year Mr. Haberman gathered them together again." "You asked me if l had ever heard them. Have they done any singing at any of our College functions?" "Why, yes, they sang for our Christmas assembly, they combined with the Vivaci club and helped us develop our Christmas spirit by singing carols. " "Didn't they also sing at one assembly early last fall?" "Yes, they've done quite a bit of singing." Do you remember the Northern Illinois Iu- nior College Conference held here at Mor- ton? The Choral Club was on that program and they certainly did a swell job." ,..,.................f....,,...........,.,.,...Y,...........-W .T,.,, . ...,,,,.--........,,..Y... .. .M . .

The first few meetings we talked about the old Greeks, because we thought we ought to know more about them." "You mean Aristotle and Socrates and all those fellows." "Yes. Then sometimes Miss Kraemer tells us about Germany and other countries." Say, l bet that's interesting." "lt sure is." Do the classes ever all meet together?"

"Why, what happened?" "Most of the time we sang French songs and Miss Bell talked for a while." "Did she speak in French again?" "Yes, and we had more fun trying to figure out what she was saying." "What did they decide about the party?" "Well, they want to have another one because everybody had such a good time at the last. They didn't decide on a definite date, though." "Were there many there?" Q "Ouite a few. Next meeting Miss Morgan's going to talk about education in France. You don't want to miss that." "I didn't want to miss last night's, for that matter. Who's the new president?" "Frank Kanalopoulos. Henry Noonan, Lois Olson, and Henry Boss are the other of- ficers." "Are we gonig to put on an assembly this year?" , I "Yep. We're going to get a French film sometime soon." INTER-RELA TIONS "Say, who was that Englishman who spoke at the International Relations club meeting last night?" "Archibald Evans. He was a real Britisher, too-accent, clothes and everything." "If he was as good as Mr. fTchiyia, I'd like to have heard him." "Oh, you mean the man from the Iapan- ese Embassy who was here not long ago?" "Yes. He ca-me last year and everyone liked him so well we decided to invite him again." "Well, I enjoyed Mr. Evan's talk a lot. Oh, yes, we received some books from the Carnegie Institute for Peace. You ought to see some of them." "Are those the ones we spoke of before which are sent to all international clubs in the country?" I ' "Yes. We also decided to take a trip to the Ghetto in the near future. Keep it in mind." "That reminds me, the library got that new book on the Ghetto. Let's go look at it." "We ought to distribute those books we got from the Carnegie Institute so that every- one gets a chance to see them."

By the way, where do we meet and what's on the pro- gram?" "l've forgotten. There's Ruth Moulik, as president she ought to know." "Whatever it is, if it's half as good as the meetings have been all year, it's worth an evening's time to me." "Hey, are you kids talking about the club meeting tonight?" "Yes, why?" "Say, could l come to that or is it just for sophomores?" "No, it's not that exclusive, but you must have at least a B average. You see the club was organized primarily to help those stu- dents who intend to take the scholarship examination at the University of Chicago. lt gives them a chance to get a broad view of many fields." ' I "Well, what do you do at meetings?" "Some faculty member gives an informal lecture on his subject and then the students get a chance to ask questions later. You really learn a lot." EDUCATICN "Where is Margaret Stahl going with the Women's club tea set?" "The Education club is giving their annual tea for former education students and for the grade-school teachers under whom they cadet." "Say, that's nice. How long have they been doing that?" "Since the very first year of the club's existence, 'way back in l926." "Has the club been organized that long? l bet it's the oldest one in college." "l don't know if it's the oldest, but it's one of them." A "Where do they have the tea?" "ln the superintendent's office." "Those aren't all education students, are they?" "No. A few are just people interested in the field of education and in social prob- lems. They do a lot of interesting things." "For instance--" "Oh, they made scrap books for children in the hospital, and visited hobo town, the University of Chicago Psychological Labora- tories, Hull House and such places.

"What's the big argument?" "It's probably government ownership and operation of public utilities-that seems to be the question most of the time." "Here comes Mr. Stone. He's the adviser, maybe he can settle the argument." "Are they the Statesmen or the Debaters?" "Well, both clubs are open to Pre-Legal students and others enrolled in the political science class so it's practically the same group." "What is the difference between the two clubs then?" "The Debaters study speech presentation as well as the question for discussion. They learn to brief a speech and all such things." "Do they do any actual debating?" "Oh, yes. The squads that represent the school in inter-scholastic debates are pick- ed from this group, and the club itself con- ducts round robin debates." "Iudging from their discussion now, l'd say they are a lively bunch." STATESMEN "What's all the excitement and noise down the hall?" "Those are Statesmen club members con- tinuing a discussion they started in a meet- ing." "What's it all about?" "Either the probability of another world war, the advisability of government owner- ship of public utilities, or possibility of a field trip to the juvenile court." T y "Do they have field trips too?" "Oh, yes. They visit the various courts, the Kent College of Law, and Northwestern Law School. This year they also spent a week-end in Springfield." "lt was the Statesmen club which con- ducted the presidential straw ballot, wasn't it?" "Yep. They conducted the class elections too." "I should think their weekly discussions of current problems would be a great help to all of them." "Not only to Pre-Legal students but to others too." "This year they didn't limit the member- ship to Pre-Legals as they have done in the past."

This ringing cry starts the students on a mad rush to secure their copy of the "Pioneer", Empty fountain pens are hurriedly filled, year-books are eagerly passed around, and old friends look for each other to sign their books. The members of the Annual staff look on contentedly. Their work is finally finished. Long months of preparation have reached their climax in the dis- tribution of the book. Early in the summer Alban Yuska began work by drawing up a rough draft of theg. oook with original and valuable suggestions from F. Roy Ander- son, last year's able editor-in-chief. Soon after school started the editors were appointed, and the rest of the staff was chosen. Conferences were held with printers, photographers, and engravers. The staff wishes to thank Mr. Zim- merman, contact man for Iahn and Olliers Engraving Company, and Mr. E. V. Linden of the Linden Printing Company for their useful and practical sug- gestions. lt was decided that this year ,".otogr'.tphy should have the most prominent place in the Annual. The staff extend their thanks to Mr. H. Schober of the Gibson Studios for the individual class photographs, and to Mr. C. O. Druschel for his group pictures. For their very candid camera shots, we praise and blame those three young men, Anton Feitl, Norman Misek, and Anton Novy, who seemed to be gifted with an uncanny ability to jump out at one from behind lockers, from under tables, and from between the campus benches to snap picturesat the most inopportune times. However, these snaps do help keep memories alive, so we forgive those three for the moments of anxiety and embarrassment they caused us. To our 'Pioneer" adviser, Mr. H. H. Finley, goes our deepest graitude for his tactful and well-timed suggestions, for his patience, and for his cheerfulness throughout the trying times of the year's work on the Annual. To the editor-in-chief goes the credit for planning and organizing the book. Through his efforts to have each bit of the book perfected, and through the staff's willingness to write and rewrite papers, the PIC NEER STAFF book is all it was hoped to be. A few weeks after the appointment of the staff, the work begins in earnest. Definite assignments are given out with suggestions as to when they should be in. The day comes and goes. Mr. Yuska sets a dead- line. That day comes and goes. Mr. Yuska makes some threats, and then observing students may notice curious looking indi- viduals Cmernbers of the staffl writing fran- tically, and monotonously c1ounting-seven- ty-nine characters per line, forty-two lines, three thousand three hundred and eighteen characters! Papers begin to drift in. Some are praised, but some are handed ' ack to be rewritten. Finally, however, late manuscripts are handed in and assembled, favorite student "snaps" are chosen and mounted, and the staff waits expectantly, and, fit must be ad- mitted? nervously for the books to come back from the printers. But at last they are here. The staff has seen them, and have enthusiastically accepted them. The staff now feels that its work was not in vain, and sits back to rest on its laurels, rising only to wish next year's staff "Good luck and a good book."

Nor was this an empty slogan. An energetic staff, from the very first issue, believed in practicing what it preached. ' Outstanding freshmen 'and sophomores with literary ability were asked to become members of the staff. Thirty responded the first week. The follow- ing students were appointed to the various offics: Norman Misek, editor-in- chief, Ioseph Mazunaitis, business manager, Robert Sedlak, managing editor, William Aten, associate editor: Ruth Moulik, literary editor, Annice Swert- feger, editorial chairman, Frank Vlcek, sports editorg and Raymond Teborek, circulation manager. Every activity in the school was co fered by capable reporters. An attempt was made to distribute the amount of news space between all of the activities more fairly. To supplement "Little Gladys" another feature, "Campus Chat- ter," which reported thetsocial activities of the student body, was added. Identity of both of the writers was kept a secret until the end of the yfear to maintain interest in the columns. The literary page proved to be an outlet for ambitious writers of poems, essays, short stories, and editorials. Extensive news of scholarships and educational and vocational features were published for the benefit of the student body. To live more closely in accordance with the slogan, at the end of the first semester a partly new editorial staff was appointed. This was done in order to give more students a chance to know the 'V grious phases of newspaper work. A number of freshmen were given positions as editors in order to train them to take over control of the paper next year. Robert Sedlak was appointed editor-in-chief, Ioseph Mazunaitis, business manager, Blanche Hrubesh and loe Bordenave, news editors, Edward Gordon, composition editor, Bernice Draper, literary editor, Frank Vlcek, sports editor, and Raymond Teborkek, circulation manager. 32 CCL LEGJAN STAFF The policies of the publication were kept similar to those of the first semester except that the freshmen more and more took over the various duties. To further better relations with the student body an outstanding assembly was presented in March by all of the college publications. Members of the Collegian staff took an active part in it. The presentation was a story of life in a newspaper office. There were typical newspaper characters. An unusual exhibit was presented by the Collegian in conjunction with the various other staffs at the annual Open l-louse. The devel- opment of the paper into what it is today was interestingly exhibited. To bring about better cooperation and friend- liness among the staff members two socials were held. A party was held during the Christmas holidays, and a picnic was held during the late Spring at a pleasant forest preserve. The outcome of the staff's ap s-lication was plainly apparent. An interest on the part of the student body in the paper was developed to such an extent that each Friday students would congregate around the distribution point on the campus waiting to read what was pub- lished in the line of college news.

EMELFM STAFF Staff: Ruth Agate, lack. Yuccas, Ioseph Mazunaitis, Earl Grotke. This year, the youngest member of the family. of Morton lunior College publications, "The Emblem," has continued to be printed and published along the same lines established by its originators two years ago. During its short period of existence the magazine has received widespread commendation. Not only have the local and metropolitan newspapers ex- pressed their interest, but "The Emblem" has attracted nationwide attention as is indicated in an article which appeared in the October, l936, issue of the "lunior College lournal" complimenting the staff and contributors on their fine work. The first semester's staff under the capable leadership of Genevieve Hatfield published its magazine in December. This issue with its attractive cover of red and green along with the forty pages of literary contributions of both a humorous and serious nature was whole-heartedly received by its readers. Students, alumni, and a faculty member contributed their talents and pre- sented a delightful variety of material. ln May, the second issue of the year was distributed. The same policy of printing a number of alumni and faculty contributions along with the literary efforts of the most talented authors of the student body was continued. ln order to stimulate more interest in the college magazine, the first semes- ter's staff sponsored an essay and short story-contest. Approximately thirty manuscripts were considered by the faculty and student judges. The first prize was awarded to Marjorie Ligler for her delightful essay, "l-lorsesensef' Bernice Draper's "l Want a Diary for Christmas" won her the second prize. 34 GENEVIEVE HATFIELD RUTH NORDSTROM Editor-in-Chief Editor-in-Cluei First Semester Second Semester GLADYS ZAROBSKY ROY HARPER Editor in Chief Record1ng Editor Q Q O Staff: Harry Sklenar, Henry Boss, ' Erwin Cerrnak, Harold Nemec. v In order to provide an appropriate coordination between the college and the community, and to better the public relations of the college, the Public Press has been organized. Through the medium of ten newspapers, the Chi- cago Daily News, the Cicero Life, the Home News, the Berwyn News, the Berwyn Beacon, Cicero News, the Berwyn Courier, Hlasatel, and the Svirnost, has such a federation been rendered feasible. For the purpose of collecting news for publication, staff meetings were held each week. Dean Spelman and others were interviewed in regard to the pend- ing collge activities. Stories were written up individually rather than the "college notes" column for which characterized the previous year's articles. An average of nine inches per week per paper was maintaind throughout the first semester. Reporter Don C. Nold of the Cicero "Life," editor Charles Malik of the "Home News," and Les Hemmingway, suburban editor of the Chicago Daily News, were among those invited to speak before the publication staff, on sub- jects pertinent to journalism. For the first time in the Public Press' history a sports department, originated by EdwardrGordon, has been organized. During the second semester, re- porters were appointed to cover this branch of news in every paper. Michael Rubinowas the editor in chief during the semester, succeeeded by Gladys Zerobsky, Edward Gordon was sports editor while Boy Harper was recording editor. Mr. H. H. Finley is the faculty advisor. 35 PUBLIC PRESS Ruth Nordstrom Norman Pechota Mary Lou Spink Edward Gordon LAWRENCE SYKORA President - First Semester The Student Council is made up of five members, three sophomores and two freshmen. Two sophomores and one freshman are elected to the council by the student body and one member from each class is appointed by the deans. Two officers, a president and a secretary, are elected by the mem- bers of the organization. It is the duty of the president to preside at all meetings of the council and to act as chairman at the assemblies. The secretary keeps arecord of the proceedings at the meetings and handles any correspondence of th council. The first semester's officers were: Larry Sykora, president, and Ruth Nordstrom, secretary. This year, the policy of holding monthly meetings with all club heads to discuss problems of the student body as a whole which was started last year was continued. lt is believed that these meetings make for a more democratic representation in the discussions of the council. ln order to improve the lighting on the campus, the Student Council appropriated a portion of the money left by the class of '36 for this purpose. New lamps were .bought and were dropped a few feet improving the lighting in the college cor- ridor greatly. This project was directed by Edward Gordon. I One of the major activities taken over by the first semester's council was the Northern lllinois lunior College Conference which met at Morton for the second year in succession on November 21. Approximately 600 student and faculty dele- gates attended the assembly program, discussion groups, and luncheon. Members of the council took over the chairmanships of the various committees that made arrangements for the big day. . Edward Langer took over the duties as president of the Stu- TUDENT I 5 I I . - v..4 -Hex I i ,Q i CCUNCIL EDWARD LANGER President - Second Semester i dent Council the second semester and Bernice Draper acted as secretary. Around Christmas time the council did its bit by sponsoring the Chritmas seal drive and by helping the student welfare committee of the high school in sending baskets of food to the needy of the district. Christmas seals were distributed to the students through the club heads, each club receiving a certain number of seals. Early in the semester a sale of carnations for the benefit of the flood sufferers was held. Approximately twenty dollars was handed over to the Red Cross as a result of this successful flower tag day. This semester the council met again with the club heads from time to time as well as with the class officers to discuss plans for the prom and other social activities. The biggest undertaking of the council this semester was Open House night which was held on April 16. Plans for the entire affair were in the hands of the council members. Ber- nice Draper and Robert Younger acted as co-chairmen of the affair. Committees in charge of the exhibits, refreshments, and assembly program worked for weeks ahead making arrange- ments for the big night. Approximately 1,500 parents and friends were entertained by the interesting educational ex- hibits and the typical "college assembly" program held in the auditorium. Of special interest were the unusual photographic exhibits of the newly-organized Camera Club and the hobbies show in the Little Theater. All in all, the Student Council accomplished a great deal this year and saw the successful materialization of many of their plans.

An unusually active group made this party, as all Men's Club parties, one grand evening. Iam band swing music by a favorite orchestra, piano solos, by a favored pianist and songs by re- quest vied with announcer Langer and Doc Thermos at the men's assembly program. The much needed refurbishing of trophies was accomplished and these prizes placed on display. The second semester saw the Father and Sons' Banquet to a gala success with a very fine entertainment program in the Little Thea- tre. From short pants to long petticoats with Fauntleroys interspersed, the yearly Kids' Party was heavily attended by the youth of the college.

These friendships were furthered by an eventful social calendar. I-Ieading the events this year was the annual Big Sister Tea at which the sophomore women played hostesses to their little sisters. Later I-Iallowe'en, Thanks- giving, and Christmas teas were given by the tribes of the Women's CIub. Tables were turned at the Leap Year Dance where the men were given an idea of what was to be ex- pected of them on future dates. The college women, helped by the men, spread yuletide cheer at the Christmas party they gave for the underprivileged youngsters of the neighbor- hood, These same women became little ,girls themselves when they honored their mothers at the annual Mother-Daughter Banquet. REMEMBER . . . when I-Iarvey Boos was invited by Dot Kaberna into the clubroom to see our Christmas tree only to be followed and reprimanded by Mr. Spelman and razzed by all the men . . . when Ruth Agate brought in a homeless little kitten to occupy the room's most comfortable chair . . . when we women were evacuated from our clubroom by janitors, ladders, paint cans, and tarpaulin . . . when Tommy Dempsey tacked up the men's valen- tine greetings to us women on the bulletin board . . . when the fish died because some were overfed and the rest were frozen from overexposure on the windowsill over the week- end . . .

ROBERT W. TEETER Director of Dramaiics The Players Guild this year was reorganized to provide a certain degree of elasticity and initiative to meet the individual talent of the members. It was hoped by this reorganization to make the club an outlet for any Thespian ambitions of the students of college. The elected officers and board of directors appointed by the president were to decide on the functions of the club and to aid the members in their work. Mr. R. W. Teeter, Ir., was the adviser of the Guild, without whose guiding hand the whole plan would have failed. A three act comedy, "It Pays to Advertise," presented for three nights early in December, opened the Guild season. lo Guido, handsom romeo of the campus, took the romantic lead. For the female love interest, we had a new- comer but experienced actress from the local Morton High School Dramatic Club. In this, her first M.I.C. appearance, Virginia I-Irubes did exceptionally well. The comic roles were taken by Ray Teborek Cwho could sell you any- thing from a Broadway musical comedy to a bar of soap to clean it up withl and Dorothy Robinson, the phoney countess. Others in the cast were: Robert Sedlak, Iudith McCaig, Frank Kaneloupoulos, Clara Gross, William Pondeli- cek, Michael Rubino, Irwin Cermak and Iames Mclntyre. The Guild next repeated a play that was presented here several years ago, "Theatre of the Soul," performed at a regular assembly program in middle Ianuary formally opening the '37 season. Again newcomers stole the spot- light, Edward Dennin, the cool rational M2 and Nelson Iames, the highly emotional Ml. The subconscious M3 was laid out by Irwin Cermak. Others in the cast were: Ruth Moulik, Irene I-Iejna, Bernice Draper, Iudith McCaig, Ioe Pletcher and I-Iarold Van Zyl.

I-'Qgain this year the Guild aided the Educational Committee celebrate Na- tional Education Week by presenting a short skit, "New Fundamentals of Education," a family dialogue originating in a radio studio, at a regular meeting of the P.T.1-X. Plans were made to revive "lt Pays to Advertise" with an outside sponsor- ship and to present the mystery drama "Double Door." The anticipated revue scheduled for May was to outdo the Guild's presen- tation of "Cf Thee I Sing" last year insofar as creative opportunity was con- cerned. Originality was the keynote-songs, dances, settings, costumes and sketches. This was the Guild's supreme effort to give the M.I.C. public some- thing new and different in entertainment. Here Mr. Teeter and Miss C. Calla- han combined their talents and work to produce an entirely new show. All year, dance classes were warned by th ecry, "We can use that in the revue." All M.l.C. song writers were paged by Mr. Teeter to "get it on paper and bring it in!" Local gag men and funsters were being urged to save their comedy for the revue. But beyond these shows, beyond this "Laugh, Clown, Laugh" appearance a small group labored hard, their names seldom appearing in print. No honor was theirs, just hard work with a hammer, saw, and paintbrush. It would only be fitting, therefore, to give their names and a suitable epitaph: Bernice Draper, Mary Ellen Richards, Norman Misek, Robert Euxa, and William Pondelicek-"And since all the world is a stage, there must be stage hands." r ACADEMIC Y 1 t '1 1 M A V - .E VYKK T.

SCDCIAL EVENTS EM l. SEE'S DIARY September. 1936 The first day of school all the new sophomores and freshmen were dash- ing around greeting old freinds. Willie was terribly jealous because Lil Gladyce thought some of the freshmen were awfully nice. CSept. 25? The first assembly was lots of fun. The sopho- mores had a chance to mimic the man- nerisms and idiosyncrasies of their teachers, and now the freshmen know what to expect when Mr. Ericson gets his foot caught in the waste-basket or when Mr. Hale begins to tell how he won the war. After the assembly everybody went to the mixer and all the sophomores got acquainted with all the freshmen, so now we ought to have some swell times together.

V Morton junior College, although it does not specialize in preparing gym instructors, requires two years of the athletic end of things before one is able to receive his diploma and has a variety of activities from which one may choose. Dancing, bowling, swimming, basketball, gymnastics, cowboy stunts, foot- ball, baseball, intramural activities, coeducational physical education con- sisting of badminton, shuffleboard, volleyball, ping pong and numerous other types of activity are on the program. Morton junior College justly boasts of one of the most varied programs of all the junior colleges in the state, equally and surpassing numerous of the small four year schools in this field also.

During the past three years, Mr. Norman A. Ziebell has been a very capable director of the athletic department. l-le has many times proved himself a molder of manhood and athletics. He is well liked bv all the students. During his regime so far Morton athletic teams have captured four championships amd three second places. Such a showing speaks for itself. Under the guidance of Norman A. Ziebell the Varsity Club gained the respect of the college with its upholding of high standards in athletics. Louis Moravec, the college's most outstanding athlete, served as president of the organization for two semesters. His program not only included good sportsmanship and training in athletics, but the "M" Club served the school as well by ushering at major fuxnctions such as Open l-louse Night and the Northern Illinois lunior College Conference which was held at Morton for several years. Louis Moravec and Richard Clish earned the most letters in their two years at school thus setting up a goal which will be difficult to attain by future students.

Coach George Lagerloff's Panther football team climaxed their l"J6 sched- ule with a win over Lisle on October 20, 1936, the first win gained by our orange and blue team in a period of two years. That in itself insured a suc- cessful season even though the Orange and Blue finished fifth in the confer- ence standings. The Panthers put in their everlasting effort in order to bring the bacon home. Captain Louis Moravec, Tony Basile, Dick Sobol, and Lawrence Blaha were the main cogs in the Panther eleven. The team was seriously hampered when Richard "Dick" Clish was injured early in the season. Dick Clish in his freshman year played a great game at guard. The backfield missed his huge openings which he made at guard. lt was Captain Moravec's brilliant defense and offense in the Lisle's game especially that brought home the 7-4 triumph. ln the other battles too Moravec was the factor that kept the oppo- nents on the alert every moment of the game. Dick Sobol who was excellent in plunging and passing is another man who the Panthers will miss when the '37 campaign rolls around. Sobol could take plenty of punishment and also retaliate with dynamic spirit and fight. Defense men playing against him found his drives through the line as hard to stop as a steam roller on the smooth surface of a street. Of the freshmen in the line-up Tony Basile and Lawrence Blaha were un- equalled. Basile, the diminuitive guard, was constantly breaking up plays that went through the center of the line and smearing the ball carrier for losses. Blaha used his ability for the same purpose on the Panther line and contributed to the prowess of the gridiron gang. Next year's team can look forward for two able veteran linemen.

The r IfXTd of the team shows that they opened against Concordia at their field and dropped a l3-7 decision. Morgan Park, champion of the league, triumphed by a l3-6 margin, while Wright gained a 6-U triumph in the last few minutes of play on the rain-soaked field. The climax of the season was reached when Lisle was beaten, but then an underrated Wilson eleven snatched a 7-2 game in the final quarter from the Panthers. Lisle game's touchdown was scored by Moravec by a triple-lateral pass from Yuccas to Sobol to Moravec. Straka scored the first touchdown of the season against Concordia. "Scrappy" Straka, although a small man, was always a threat. He is expected to do things next year. During the football season Kenneth Plagge played first string center until he was injured severely in scrimmage. Morton lunior College lost a good man when he was injured. Another person who deserves recognition is "Dancing-toes" Zalusky. He was a good defensive as well as offensive tackle. He is another man who is coming back. Other prospective football players coming back next year are ludson ludae and loseph Shepard. ludson ludae was a very effective backfield man. As a halfback he quickly diagnosed the opponents plays. Bill Aten also deserves some praise for going out for football in M.l.C. without any previous experience. Next year M.I.C. expects Anthony "Tony" Basile, Lawrence Blaha, Kenneth Plagge, Iudson ludae, loe Shepherd to carry the bulwark of the burden for the '37-'38 season. jf--W,-v., ...-.,,,,, ,,-., ....-w. .,,,:,,.,..,...i.,.. . .V-. ., ., .--v W-V-fe -f-- --Y ------v-"- ' ' -'M "c"""""' A' " BQSKE Basketball, king of the sports at Morton lr. College, dropped abruptly on the scene, too abruptly it seemed for the squad headed by Captain Louis Moravec was batted around in its first four games against Wright, Wilson, La Grange, and loliet. lt was only in the La Grange game that the squad showed any of the power they actually possessed. A brilliant attack stepped the team from a 20 point defi- ciency to the point at the end of the game which they lost only after a fight, 47-42. Thornton was the first team that the local collegians were able to beat, but then they were handed successive trim- mings at the hands of La Salle-Peru and North Central freshmen. The La Salle en- counter which went into overtime was a thriller, and the handful of Panther fol- lowers saw Lawrence Blaha drop in l8 points. The second semester saw a great dif- ference in the team when Vincent Manno and Leonard Novak were added to the squad's roster. They, coupled with the steady playing of Louis Moravec and lames Rachick and Blaha's scoring spu1'iS started the Panther's string of victories. The spree was held back by a 54-47 de- feat by loliet which opened second semes- ter play. The squad then traveled to Thornton and took their second win, C111 " . --L:.- -,, . ' ' f " A' "' '- -.

La Grange saw Manno and Blaha play- ing fine basketball, while Klindera, all state of La Grange, was being held in check, and Morton took its third consecu- tive victory. ln the final game of the year, La Salle was handed its return defeat. The local college started in the Illinois Ir. College tournament auspiciouslv when they easily ran over Chicago Christian 63-33 with Moravec and Manno taking the high point honors. The next night, how- ever, the local collegians met La Grange which broke the 'streak and eliminated the team, 55-42, with Moravec and Manno again taking point leads. Moravec accomplished the almost un- believable in not missing a free throw in the two games, of which he had lil chances. Vincent Manno was selected as forward on the All-State first team, and Louis Mor- avec received a position as guard on the second team of the state. Coach E. A.

GULF ln spite of the difficulty of making up a golf team because few men at Morton play a good game or try out for the golf team, Morton usually turns out a fairly good team. Morton won the lunior College Confer- ence championship in the fall of l934, and came close to winning it again in the fall of l935. Due to a bad start in 1935 the team lost their first two meets but won the last three. lohn Privara, a member of the Con- ference Championship team of 1934, was number one man, Hoy Anderson number two, lohn Fridrich number three, and Wil- liam Thomas was number four man. This last fall, Iohn Fridrich and William Thomas were again on the golf team, the other two members being Michael Grodski and Roy Slama. Michael Grodski was num- ber one man, lohn Fridrich two, William Thomas three, and Roy Slama four. Mor- ton was eliminated in its first match with Morgan Park Iunior College, Roy Slama being the only victor for Morton, while lohn Fridrich earned one point out of a possible three. 0 Thomas, Slama, Martinek ' The baseball team this year was coached bY LGMOY119 BCHSOH, fOTII1GI COCICh of the high school Freshman-Sophomore baseball team. F rank Maziarek, F rank Vlcek, Louis Moravec, Homer Cfrillot, George Kolka, and Richard Clish were those veterans of last year's team who returned to play ball again this year for the good old alma mater. The starting line-up for the first practice game against Cak Park Iunior College found present Louis Moravec of basketball and football fame Who dise tinguished himself in last year's baseball games. Moravec again took his position at the hot corner Where he did remarkably Well last year. Harvey Boos, a freshman of promising ability, took the position of short-stop. Homer Grillot, a hard slugging hitter and out- standing veteran of last year's team, 0 Co-Captain Louis Momvec, Coach played at second base.

Vincent Manno, a good place hitter and a fast fielder, covered the field next to Kolka. Completing the outfield line-up we find Arthur Kovarik, a veteran of last year who originally came to the college team from the championship high school team and who this year again held down right field. . Once again Richard Clish efficiently took care of the catcher's position which he so ably managed last year. Q 4 The brunt of the pitching was carried by Frank Maziarek and Frank Vlcek, vet- erans of last year. Maziarek received most of his experience playing with Coach Pavilnek's American Legion team.

Once again Morton's team has an excellent chance to win the cham- pionship if the pitcher's come through winning. The hitting power of the team ywill do the rest. For heavy hitting, the team depends upon Louis Moravec, fa- mous for his long triples, Richard Clish, ,Vincent Manno, .and George. Kolka. 'T Coach LeMoyne Batson has 5 arranged a schedule of twelve games with mem- bers of the Illinois Iunior College Con- ference and other junior colleges in the metropolitan area. The first game played against Oak Park Iunior College on April lO resulted in a victory for the Orange and Blue with a score of 7 to l. Louis Moravec, Harvey Boos, Homer Grillot, and Milan Babich form a good defensive infield while George Kolka, Vincent Manno, and Arthur Kovarik unite to present an outfield that will efficiently and swiftly cover its territory at all times. For reserve players there are Daniel Basile, cltffnate catcherp Charles Straby, outfielderg Lawrence Blaha, first base- man. The combination of many of the best players of last year's team with the aid of the very promising freshmen should bring another baseball championship to Morton Iunior College thus making it five times that Morton has received this hon- or within the past twelve years.

Managers for this year's term were Tommy Dempsey and Ray Mack. Two meets were the program for this year, one being victorious and the other ending in a defeat. ' The first meet was held against the high school team which is recognized as one of the toughest teams in the country. The one- sided score of nine to one does not give credit to the team which fought its way against stiff competition. All decisions were extremely close: experience was the decid- ing factor in the high school's victory. ln the second meet against Wright Tumor College, Morton was victorious with a score of four to three. l-loppe, Yuccas, Muldoon, and Tylutki were the winners. Yuccas star- red with a fifty-eight second knock-out. I 6 6 f D f ,f 1 7, Q. Morton Iunior College's wrestling team did not fare so well as a team. They competed against four-year colleges with well-es- tablished teams. This is Morton's second successive season of wrestling. And though the l936-37 team had very few experienced men at their disposal, much can be said for those new men who came out for the team. After a few months of practice theY fought against the best teams of the metro- politan area. The squal had plenty of fight- ing spirit, but could not wholly make up for the lack of experience. The wrestlers who were ,constantly winning their matches were Martin Ondrus, Ioseph Rehlcopf, Iohn Frid- rich, Robert Brouk, and Edwin Cermalc. The co-captains for l936-37 were Martin Ondrus and lohn Brezinski. There was a shortage of men for the heavyweight division. When not holdinq down some lightweight position, Kanalc, Ko- randa, Siml, and Zalusky took turns at the heavyweight. The team competed with Armour Tech, North Central, Wheaton, and the U. of C. l t CROSSCXDUNTRY TRACK zins Ioach . I 0 Tibensky, Smaus, Vasek, Yuska. The cross country team experienced the most unsuccessful season of any Morton cinder men, losing all meets entered. Lack of experience combined with few runners attributed to the unsuccessfulness of the team. Captain Otto Vasek, Al Yuska, Wal- lace Smaus, and Leo Tibensky were the girly runners to compete for the Orange and ue. Even with Al Yuslca and Otto Vasek fin- ishing second and third respectively in the first meet of the season against the high school, the team lost a close meet ll-lO. However, this defeat inspired the athletes to train more vigorously for their next meet. North Central, the next team the squad met, proved too strong, they overwhelmed the Orange and Blue 40-15. Al Yuska and Otto Vaselc placed fourth and fifth respec- tively. Morton again met the high school dur- iliq a country gale, the outcome being the same as the first meet. The team finished the season with three losses but with a hope that next year's team will revenge its defeats. iw Ax nj 0 Pedall, Fijal, Gianneschci 0 Luetzow, Pater, Tiben sky, Michl 0 Coach Finlayson, Svikhart, Kotzam, Stacy Vasek, Aten, Yuccas, Shephard.

Veterans returning from last year's squad are: lack Yuccas, present N.l.l.C. javelin champion, Wilbur Luetzow, an exceptional low and high hurdler, and Otto Vasek of whom big things are expected in the half- mile run this season. New men who should greatly strengthen the team are: Collin Higgins, steller high jumper and pole vaulter of high school fame, Stanley Sereyka, an excellent weight man, Arthur Michl who has prospects of being a good dash man.

The Morton Gymnastic team had its be- ginning in l934, When an athletically in- clined group of boys under the guidance of Coach O. l. Kudrnovsky decided to form a Gymnastic Club. ln the second year of its existence the Gymnastic Club was disbanded, the 8 mem- bers deciding to engage in meets renaming themselves the Gymnastic team. Only four year schools were available for competi- tion. This year the team defeated George Wil- liams College but lost to Chicago U., U. of Illinois, and Nebraska.

A Table Tennis, commonly known as pmq pong, has been on lVlorton's sport calendar for the past two years. This game in a short space of time has become popular with the students of the college. Wilbur Luetzow and Richard lohnstone were the only veterans returning from last year's squad. A well organized intramural tournament aided in discovring enough good material to form a well-balanced var- sitY squad. The results of this tournament added Robert Axen, Alvin Rosenbloom, Theodore Slapalc, and George Steidl to the squad. George Steidl, a freshman, defeated Wil- bur Luetzow of the sophomore class for the championship. ln its first intercollegiate competition Mor- 'IOH lunior College lost to LaGrange lunior College by close margins of 4-3. The N.l.I.C. has not as yet adopted table tennis for competition in the conference, but if DTOlOCIblY will be accepted in the near fu- ture. INTRAMURAL PRQGRAM Intramural Winners: George Steidl, Tennis: Frank Maziarek. Checkers: Bud Palmer, Horseshoes: EDWARD GORDON cmd the Pre-Commerce Basketball Team. Intramural Manage,- lntramural sports prospered this year under the capable direction of the intramural board headed by Edward Gordon. A great variety of activities were offered the student body, and the men entered into the sports with much enthusiasm. First along the line were the freshmen and sophomore tennis singles which were won by George Steidl and Robert Axen respectively. After a long, fierce battle, Steidl and Slapak won over Thermos and Mickelson in the finals of the doubles match giving the Liberal Arts and Sciences a commanding lead in the race for the intramural trophy. Complete domination of the title in intramural went to that same group for the first semester when Bur Palmer and Frank lvlaziarek won the horseshoe tournament and checker tourney respectively. Ping Pong was delayed, and the results were not accurate. However, Wil- bur Luetzow and Robert Axen were among the best of the sophomoresg and George Steidl and Alvin Rosenbeloom were the best of the freshmen. ln basketball the Pre-Commerce team of Leutzow, Clish,,Velan, Thermos, Mickelson, and Zaleta went all the way to the finals. They subdued the Liberal Arts and Sciences team and the Engineers l team. The Pre-Commerce ll team beat the Pre-Engineer l team for third place. The Pre-Commerce I team beat the highly rooted Pre-Engineer ll team. The final score for the intramural championship was 22-ll. Nick Thermos was high point man with 7 points: and Wilbur Luetzow followed closely with 6 points. The Pre-Commerce l team allowed their opponents only 28 points to be second throughout the tournament. This year the Liberal Arts and Science students have had the upper hand in winning different tournaments. X 6 9 A N X2 QUE ATHLETE ,Z K-,, 5 1 1 -- xc s' s w A - XW..X3"5 A s 5.

March 20 Morton sent thirty athletes to the DeKalb Basketball Playday and let everybody in for a day of fun, on the bus trip as well as in the games.-. The climax of the season was our own interclass tourna- ment, and two more evenly-matched teams than this year's Frosh and Sophs never met. The series was the best two out of three games, and all three were needed, the Freshmen winning the first, 24-23, the Sophs the second, 28-25, and the deciding game being tied, 26-26. Captain Mary Tucker and Ann Najemnik, star guard, shone out on the Frosh squad, while the Sophomores presented a fairly well-balanced outfit, with no outstanding stars. Much of the credit for this very peppy' and successful season goes to Mildred Feres, WAA's energetic manager.

An eager squad of about eighteen girls arrive-d at the C.B.cSQ. field every Monday and Wednesday morn- ings, during the crisp harvest months, promptly ten to twenty minutes late. With time and concentrated practice on "left hand lunges", "scoops", and clever stickwork, a team developed which was good enough to go over to the West Suburban Hockey Field on two brisk Saturdays in Cctober and November and give the more-experienced West Suburbanites two hard- fought games, altho Morton won neither one, losing 5-2 and 2-l respectively. , Around the middle of November our own traditional Freshman-Sophomore struggle took place, with the powerful CPD Sophomores under the captainship of Delores Miller walking off with both games, 4-0 and 5-O. The hockey season came to a triumphant close at the U. of Chicago Playday, December 5, when Mor- ton's two teams won four out of five games with rival schools. To our coach, Miss Callahan, and to Manager De- lores Miller goes most of the credit for making hockey of l936 such an enjoyable campaign.

Coeducational Hour- Tuesday evenings featured Ping Pong, along with Badminton, Volleyball, and Twenty- one: and a Ladder Tournament sponsored by the WAA was in continuous operation throughout the year, but at no time did more than a few women show interest in the game. Ping Pongers Brana, Baka, Hanke, Peres, Iohnston, Svoboda, Miller, Doubek, and Kruzic progressed into the selective rounds of the tournament, but a champion was still in doubt by the first of April. Ping Pong was enjoyed at Thornton and DeKalb also. , The Women's Athletic Association each year presents awards to those sportgirls who have justly earned them, an emblem for two seasons of athletics and a college M for five seasons. ln 1937 ten women received ern- blems, six sophomores and four freshmen, Beth Pish, Clementine Deering, Gladys Gor- anson, Lorraine H-anke, Mary Daubek, Vir- ginia l-lrubes, Ethel Reichert, Gertrude Tal- man, Mary Tucker, and Ruth Moulik. The four college M's were awarded to four soph- omores, Delores Miller, Mildred Peres, Min- nie Brana, and Venna lohnstan. Morton Iunior College should be proud of its sports- loving women! TENNIS Mary Tucker Congratulcrtes The fall tennis tournament did not attract large num- - --'--- bers, but it brought forward some good tennis on the Darts of the eleven entrants. Ten women entered, and out of the first round miscellaneous talent emerged Mil- dred Peres, Edith Bierma, Gertrude Talman, and MCIIY Tucker into a second round of hard-fought matches. Tal- man lost to Bierma 6-47 6-27 and Tucker defeated Peres 5-3: 6-3. The finals were played at Clyde Park on CI CPHIY morning in 9CIIl'Y November, with a net borrowed from the school and set up by the girls themselves. MiSS Edith Bierma was crowned Champion after two se-tS Of hard l3lCIY, and thus became "Queen of the Nets" for 1937, an honor truly deserved. . M-J, I I 'N- . iv, uni 'N D55 W SP" -...g rw- K-..

Moulik, D. Miller, E. Baka, L. I-Ianke, and M. Brana met regularly every Tuesday evening dur- ing the first semester, and climaxed their efforts by originating a dance for the WAA Assembly. After discontinuing practices for a period, the group met again to work hard and untiringly on a number for the Revue. Several performances by I-Ionya I-Iolm, Doris Humphrey, and Charles Weidman and Martha Graham were attended. Al- together Modern Dancing spent an interest- inf! though not voluminous year at Morton. 0 Najemnik, Brown, Iohnston, Peres 0 Miller, Iehnoutka, Neher SWIMMING Never a major sport at Morton, swim- ming this year attracted fewer women than usual. Monday nights saw an average of six swimmers in action, and so, about the middle of the second semester the sport was discontinued for the year. But while it lasted our CPD fair mermaids had a lot of fun, Mary Allott concentrating on endurance, Minnie Brana approaching perfection on "belly flops", mesdames Naiemnik, Neher, and Sehnoutka becoming adept at picking stones off the bottom, and mermaids Peres, Miller, and Iohnston of King Neptune's mar- ine chorus swallowing one ton of water with each. 'bob'.-Splash! BCWLI-NG College women really "went to town" in Bowling this Year. The ball-rolling game proved deeply fascinating, Iohnston. despite the "pecunia" proposition tied up with it, and about thirty women bowled three strings regularly once Ct week. Two meets wtih the I-Iigh School netted the Q9 an even break, both contests full of thrills. In the second meet Ruth Nordstrom startled everyone by bOWli11q a l8O game, and along with the other members Of Morton's high five, Mary Daubek, Betty Williams, VQTHCI Iohnston and Harriet Mitchell, presented a strong front line of attack.

Their initiation into the college social life came at the Mixer on September 25 in the dining room. T The following week class elections wereiheld. For the freshmen loseph Bordenave was made president, lames Mclntyre, vice-president, Marion Wan- kat, secretary, and Carl Honzak, treasurerff Edward Gordon and Mary Lou Spink were made representatives on thet' student council. With the elections out of the way, freshmen, with the aid of the sophomores and faculty members, set themselves down to the task of becoming college students. Because of the increased load, homework schedules had to be re- vised and lengthened: a more scientific view on study had to be acquired. The underclassmen, however, werefnot too busy to give a spirited talent assembly on October 30. ' The first indication of the growing feeling as a class came on October 24 when all of the freshmen men united to defeat the sophomore men in a gigantic tug-of-war between the halves at a football game, much to the chagrin of the ,cphomores who went into the battle anicipating an easy victory. The Fall Prom on November 28, the Christmas Dance on December 19, and numerous other socials helped in making the process of orientation into ju- nior lcollege ways of living the more easy. At first the prospect of final examinations seemed too far in the future to be worthy of any concern among the freshmen. 82 A 5 3 0 F FICERS IOSEPH SHEPHARD HENRY NOONAN CLEMENTINE DEERING LIBBY POHIADA President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer "Let the sophomores worry about such trivialities," seemed to be their comment. ' But, suddenly, this far-distant prospect was a present reality. To bolster up the spirits of the freshmen, bewildered by the onslaught of exams, a needed Gloom-chaser was held in the dining room on Ianuary 20. In the elections the second semester loseph Sheperd was made president, Henry Noonan, vice-president, Clementine Deering, secretary, and Libby Pohajda, treasurer. Edward Gordon and Bernice Draper were made freshman members of the student council. Experienced by one semester of college activities, the freshmen entered into the activities of the second semester with a vigor and vitality. . The five partys of the second semester were well attended. Perhaps the Kids' Party Saturday evening, March 6, will be remembered most by the freshmen as unusual and particularly pleasant. Other informal parties of the semester were: the Backwards Dance on April 37 the Barn Dance on April 24, the Tea Dance on April 307 and Class Night. on lune 12. .- The rapid development of leadership among the members of 'them class was revealed in the work done for Open House on April l6 and the Spring Prom on May l5. The freshmen were well represented on the committees and completed their duties with zest and a demonstration of considerable creative ability. One-half of the Class of '38's history at Morton has been completed. lt is, so far, a history worthy to be proud of. Next year the members of the class are expected to ,bring their history to a successful close. 83 FRESHMEN GF7l-9-3-7 f L.

Everything was different: everybody was called "Mister" or "Miss." Class periods were longerp subiectswere more difficulty classes were conducted differently, 'students were lefttowork more on their OWH. l f The l936 sophomore class did what it could to malie the freshmen feel at home. At the Mixer, Friday, September 20, the first taste of junior college social life was given to the new class. -X T The genial atmosphere of the club house and the campus as well as the frienly advice of teachers and sympathetic sophomores permitted the freshmen to relax. An interest was awakened in school affairs that was not to cease being active until this Iune. In the first election for me new class the following students were made of- ficers: Robert Drysch, pr ,-sidentp lack Pederson, vice-president: Ruth Moulik, secretary: and Wilbur Luetzow, treasurer. Alban Yuslca and Annice Swertfeger served on the student council. Parties were given, assemblies presented, and projects completed with a gusto. The Fall Prom on November 25 was the first important social function of the year. Hardly before the freshmen could realize it, the old semester was over, and a new one was begun. Election returns made William Lesak, class president, Alban Yuska, vice-president, Dorothy Robinson, secretary, and Nick Thermos, treasurer. Ruth lvfoulik and Walter Callas represented the class on the council. Another whirl of activities ensued for the semester, some of which were open house, the Spring Prom, the Barn Dance, Class Night and finally gradua- ss P CLASS CFFICERS WH.BUR LUETZOW RICHARD SOBOL IOSEPH IAC!-IIM GRAYCE WALTON' President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer tion for the sophomores, - September l4,.,1936, 238 sophomores returned to continue their college work and elected Robert Drysch as president,,Mildred Peres, vice-president, Ruth Moulik, secretary, and Irene Hejna, treasurr. Ruth Nordstrom, Larry Sykora, and Norman Pechota represented the class on the council. With a year of ,experience behind them, the sophomores readily took over the school activitif s. Rounds of parties and other -events followed. The climax of the social season came on November 28 at the Fall Prom at which a lapanese garden was featured, The 'important social activities of the semester were the Backwards Dance, the Christmas Dance, and the Gloomchaser. With the worry of examinations over, class elections resulted in Wilbur Luetzow being made president for the second sen alter, Richard Sobol, vice- president, loseph Iachim, secretary, and Graycek ialton, treasurer. Mildred Peres, Edward Langer, and Robert Younger were made members of the council. A colorful and lively Barn Dance was sponsored by the class on Saturday, April 17. The last promenade of the college, which the sophomores could at- tend as students, was held May 15. Student committees cooperated in making it a gala success. ' Then, the thoughts of the class members were turned on graduation. The last social event for the sopohmores was scheduled to be held Saturday evening, lune 12. The Sunday preceding Commencement Exercises, joint Baccalaureate services were arranged to be held with the high school gradu- ating class.

"At last they're getting out, and we'll have our chance," or maybe you'll take a more syr 'ietic at- titude-we hope so anyway. All that there is left to say is that weve had one grand time playing with you, studying with you, and competing with you. We hope you'll have as good a time as we did playing big brother and big sister to the group of freshmen coming in next year. V So with regret deep in our hearts at the thought of leaving you and Morton and with many fond memories we leave to you the good old college corridor: genial, lovable "Spel," the full run of all college activities, and last but not least-all the collateral, term papers, and homework you may care to do- with the earnest desire that all these things will mean as much to you as they have meant to us in the past two years. , ' The Sophs. 101 M 4 I f X f My , f f ,Q X nb H X315 f XMI, f 5 9 1 Q ff J if Of I X011 H 6 W W if FJ '5 my fffyw ,M nf ff J? , f f J fy , W J K, , fh , , K f J I X JO!
