Tl-TE ADMTNTSTRATTCDN Ol-7 THE
DR. I.. M. 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."

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
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.

Dear College Students: We think it high time that
you should know just what the dear members of the
faculty got most out of in college. lt is amazing
how few realized any scholastic benefits from the
dreadful ordeal. 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.
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"?

things they found on their nature hikes." '
"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."

work is because of things we learn in clubs." V

and even help sudents get jobs sometimes."

"Yes, and they went bowling and played ping-pong, mg,"

year the faculty chooses new members on the basis of scholarship, leader-
ship, character and service. 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."
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."

"l believe our class work is a foundation and the other work we do supple-
ments it and makes it more interesting."

more than the drudgery of studying all the time?" .

fun they had getting the paper out or something like! that rather than of
studies." g , -

pating in extra-curricular activities." A

ord for being one of the most active clubs
in school, aren't they?"

every week-end lately." I
"Where're they going now?"

tal a few weeks ago, they watched an op-
eration and everything."

ably back 'of a lot of it."

were Good too."

back in l925."

conducts the Commerce Club around the
Northwestern University campus?"

terest and' impressiveness of the trip."

merce students' hopes, they went right out
and secured a speaker, A. W. Hendrickson,
who talked on investing the excess family
income in securities."

ALBAN YUSKA WILBUR LUETZOW H. H. FINLEY

'lThe Annual's out!" 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
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

With slight alterations, the adage of members of the Collegian staff during
the last year might be taken from Abraham Lincoln's Cfettysburgh address.
lt would read like this: "To make the Collegian a newspaper of the students,
by the students, and for the students."
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,
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,
The policies of the publication were kept
similar to those of the first semester except that
the freshmen more and more took over the
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

Collegian in conjunction with the various other

opment of the paper into what it is today was
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
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.

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
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.

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.

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. .

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.

In the informal atmosphere provided by the
rhythmic tunes of the clubroom radio, the shar-
ing of lunches, the comparing of homework,
and rambling discussions, casual acquain-
tances became close friends.
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

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:

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.

Thornton, Concordia, La Grange, North Park, aznd loliet. This organization is
called the Northern lllinois lunior College Conference, with Robert Moffet l-lale
of Morton at the helm.
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-
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
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
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

Basketball, king of the sports at Morton

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
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
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

the l-larvevites have ever put out. When
Herzl of Chicago was defeated on the
local court, 32-23, the team's chances be-
gan' to take on a new aspect..
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

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.

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-

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

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

ln the outfield, George Kolka, an effi-
cient ball player, Watched over the left
field. 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

The team is at its best playing on the
defensive. 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

and Blue with a score of 7 to l.
Louis Moravec, Harvey Boos, Homer

to present an outfield that will efficiently
and swiftly cover its territory at all times.

The combination of many of the best
players of last year's team with the aid

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.

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

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

Basketball of 37 proved to be a fast moving season
February ll LaGrange came to Morton two strong
teams ready for combat But LaGrange went home
fifty per cent satisfied for tho victorious in the Frosh
game 24 23 Morton s Sophomores took their measure
in the second contest 32 22 Three weeks later Mor
ton traveled to LaGrange for return games and this
time came out on top in both contests, the Freshmen
winning 35-19 and the Sophs conquering, 29-22.
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.

Hockey enjoyed a fine season this fall, with lots of
pep displayed and a few slight semblances of team
work showing up toward the end of November. 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

lores Miller goes most of the credit for making hockey

PING-PCNG LETTER WCMEN
Ping Pong played a minor role in wom-
en's sports this year, chiefly because of in-
adequatev facilities. 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
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

The College Modern Dance Club de-
creased in numbers this year, but not in
fascination to its five members. R. 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.

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

President Vice-President Secreidfy Tfeasufef
September l4, l936, was a big day in the lives of 203 men and women,
because on that day they began their work in Morton Iunior College. 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.

"Let the sophomores worry about such trivialities," seemed to be their
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.

Cn September 9, 1935, 314 bein. .tered freshmen began their work in
Morton Iunior College. 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

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
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-

N GPEN LETTER
With a sigh of relief you may think Cor say? "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. , '
