A PLEASURE, RARE BUT REAL
This year, T937-1938, l experimented: l actually registered as a student in a sophomore class
ol Morton vlunior College, and l Hcarried the coursel' both semesters. Yes, l vvas a regular student:
l criticized the excessive amount ol collateral, l thought a test was unfair, l was called on unexpectedly,
l lost my boolc, l did an assignment at the last minute-abut l lil4ed the vvorlc and the instructor.
More than that, l lilted the class' afthe Fellowship, the friendliness, the discussions of class and
college affairs, the plan vve devised to "stall the recitationf, the helpful advice given me for a coming
examination, the study in the library'-'hand the sincerity and conscientiousness on everybody,s part
that signifies my classmates are men and Women Whom l am proud to l4novv.
To be one of uusl' students in my own college was a pleasure, rare but real, and one l am happy
WALTER B. SPELMAN
A message to the students of the junior college? What better message can l give than l-luxleyls
live-pointed conception ol an education?
UThat man, l thinlc, has had a liberal education, who has been so trained in youth that his body
is the ready servant ol his will, and does with ease and pleasure all the vvorlc that, as a mechanism,
it is capable ol, vvhose intellect is a clear, cold, logic engine, with all its parts of equal strength,
and in smooth worlcing order, ready, lilce a steam engine, to be turned to any lcind of work, and
spin the gossamers as well as Forge the anchors of the mind, whose mind is stored with a knowledge
of the great and fundamental truths of Nature and ol the lavvs of her operations, one who, no stunted
ascetic, is lull of life and Fire, but whose passions are trained to come to heel by a vigorous will,
the servant of a tender conscience, vvho has learned to love all beauty, whether of Nature or of
art, to hate all vileness, and to respect others as himself."

We've the grandest faculty ever. ltls made up of a
group of people that we can't seem to visualize as being
anything but teachers. Yet deep in their hearts each held
an ambition auite different from the one in which we
piciure them. Suppose they had followed that other
ami n . . .
e would find Dean Spelman, Olympic high diving
champ. Mr. Ericson, a motorcycle cop. Can you imagine
being stopped on a highway with Hpull over, you were
doing 60 collateral pages an hour. f-lerels a nice term
paperwtell it to the judgeln Gf course Mr, l-lale would
be the gallant soldier, but we'd rather he was a mis-
sionary in the South Seas. Qur Zephyr would be run by

she could aid humanity, teaching and nursi . l'ler psych
classes are happy with her ultimate choice. You may
have wondered about that twinlcling loolt in Mr, Almerfs
eyeswrhe wanted to be an astronomer. lmagine Miss
Callahan the Walter Winchell of Cicerol We have two
sets of doubles: Miss Morgan and Miss Reid have both
confessed a leaning toward art, and Mr. Finley and Mr.
Finlayson were set on being cowboys.
But arenlt we all glad fate intervened and set things
right so that we were privileged to be together, Qf
course sometimes maybe we did wish things had been
different, but now that weyre leavingffwell, we can
begin to appreciate what we should have been appre-
ciating for two long years.

The date was September 13,
1937, up and down the corridor,
which had been silent for so
many weeks were manifest evi-
dences of renewed life. Students
opened and closed lockers, exchanged greetings with friends, or gathering up their books,
prepared to attend classes. Among these students were three hundred and forty men and
women making their debut as college freshmen.
Soon after the opening of the semester, class elections were held, the new class entering
into the spirit of things with characteristic enthusiasm. Qne of the highlights of the elections
was the victory in the race for class president of Don l-lantak over jerry Moro by one vote.
Qther class officers elected were gloseph Sisco as vice-president, Richard Sedlak as secre-
tary, and Laddie Sakala as treasurer. Luana Weber and Jerry Moro were chosen as repre-
sentatives to the student council.
The freshmen were given their first taste of college social life at the College Mixer
held Qct. 'i. Two weeks later they showed their appreciation by providing a happy and
sticky time for everyone at the Taffy Apple Dance.
ln spite of the difficulties of readjusting and accustoming themselves to their new role
of college students, individual members of the class found time to take an active part in
school sports, dramatics, music, and in working on the staffs of school publications. The
work done by members of the class as committee heads for the Fall Prom on Nov. Q6, helped
much to make this affair a success.
The Halloween Masquerade, the Christmas Dance, as well as the other socials through-
out the semester provided pleasant pauses in the routine business of classes and studies.
Cn jan. 7, the freshmen class gave their annual assembly at which they retaliated for
the beating given them by the sophomores in the tug of war, held earlier in the season
when the two champions of the underclassmen defeated those of the sophomores in a pie
To the freshmen final examinations were a vague something which need not be worried
about until the end of the semester. Relentlessly and inevitably, however, the middle of
january approached bringing with it the sudden, awful realization that exams were just
around the corner. After a hectic two weelcs of studying, last minute cramming, and struggling
over lengthy examination papers, all were in need of a rousing good time such as was
provided at the College Alumni Warehouse dance held slan. 29.
With one semesters experience behind them the freshmen began the second half of
the year with renewed vitality. The first social event of the semester, a lea Dance, was
given to welcome the new February freshmen,
ln the second semester elections Robert Kass was elected class president, jaclc Burton,
vice-president, Sherwood French, secretary, and Al Schovanec, treasurer. Student council
representatives chosen were Edward Starman and Dorothy l.ewis.
Freshmen capability and development of leadership was again exhibited in the prepara-
tions made for Qpen House and for the Spring prom.
Now, standing at the halfway mcrlc in their junior college career, the class loolcs back
with pride over the two semesters
successfully completed, and ahead
with great hopes for those to

COLLEGE CLUBS AND
Every student, as he enters a college or university, looks
forward to the extra-curricular activities which that school
offers. Among the most important of these are the clubs
varying to opposite extremes in their aims and purposes.
There are clubs for purely social purposes, clubs which are
educational, clubs organized for the betterment of the school,
and clubs which are mixtures of these. Any student who
joins such an organization is drawn deeper into the school
life and receives much more from such a venture than he
himself can possibly put into it.
lmportant to everyone is the making of new friends and
acquaintances. Obviously, this is the result when a small
group of people meet together. The ideas and opinions are
exchanged and discussed, bringing about a clearer under-
standing of the other person. The advisers of the clubs are
able and willing to aid the members in any problems which
arise in the club or in the students personal affairs. Through
their wider experience and their more mature judgment the
advisers are able to clarify mistaken notions, and suggest
ideas which had not occurred to the students.
Perhaps more important than this is the opportunity of
meeting those persons of wide experience who appear as
speakers at the club's meetings. The problems in which the
clubs are interested are thus brought before the members,
accurately and authoritatively. These people are frequently
able to suggest new opportunities to students who otherwise
might have had no knowledge of them.
Organizations conducted entirely by the students afford
an opportunity to learn the responsibilities of leadership, as
well as how to conduct business meetings and elections, to
introduce speakers, and to direct general discussions. It falls
upon the club members to plan any social affairs the club
may have, they must arrange for the appearance of their
outside speakers, and their trips to various plants, factories,
settlements, and institutions,
So it is that our clubs last from year to year while students
and even advisers come and go. Sometimes things are left
undone, and sometimes new, and better ways are begun.
Yet, all in all, it is the clubs with their widely different
personalities and activities that make the extra-curricular
activities of any school.

Until very recently it vvas thought advisable to limit the membership of this clu to law
students only, but so many other people developed an active intereXslt7'inTt,Tha rTovAvf'theJ, f
golden portals of the Statesmen's Club have been opened to thdse students interestgd in
its vvorl4, regardless of their curriculum.
To this club goes the honor of being the first such club to sponsor a dance for the entire
college. And a gala affair it vvas, with soft music, lovv lights, and the statesmen fairly beaming
with pride. So congratulations to you, and may you continue in your good work.
This year the club's trips have been extremely interesting and beneficial. They have
visited the County jail and Court, the Federal Court, and the Joliet Penitentiary. The
club cooperated very successfully with the high school social studies group in sponsoring
the annual trip to Washington, D. C. ln the very near future they are expecting to worlc
again with the high school in planning a trip to Springfield, lllinois. The speeches, dis-
cussions, and trips included in their program, with the interest of active students behind it,
should not fail Uto promote legal ethics, and to give students insight into the fields of lavvn.
The officers of the club were president, Jerry Moro, vice-president, Eclvvard Fischl,
secretary, Pauline Soclcolovslcy, and treasurer, l-lenry Noonan.

in student or faculty homes, provide a
little extra spirit of friendship and lun.

Yes, that group of fascinating men-
about-town have a club. They call it
a club, but we wonder whether such
a very ordinary name would do for a
group of such extraordinary young men.
ln order to Uacauaint the engineering
student with the methods of industryf'
these earnest young fellows go on trips
to various and sundry places. lhey all
eagerly report that the best one was
the visit to the University of lllinois,
where they saw all of the engineering
buildings, and all the little gadgets so
dear to the engineers heart. ln this
club we find a group of fellows who
are always eager and willing to help
in any way in the various college
projects and drives during the year.
The officers of the club are elected
each semester. For the first semester
they were president, David Smith, vice-
president, Elmer Burda, secretary-treas-

The Saddle Club was, of course,
organized so that its members might
have an opportunity to ride together.
Their principle delight now, so it is
said, is watching the novices learn to
ride. lVlr. Aird, their adviser, par-
ticularly enjoys this. From beginners,
the members progress to medium, good,
and advanced riders. The latter are
learning to jump. The members con-
tinue to ride during the summer, thus
keeping the club intact the year round.
They Went on a hay ride early in the

TO Tl-IESTUDENT BQDY:
Accept this book ol memories, this annual ol joy and tears,
work and Fears. Sign it now in hurried lrenzies, delace its pages
with youthful heedlessness, but destroy ite cneverl Ch, vve know
that our labors, our etlorts, have now seemingly produced just
another annual in which to collect signatures, but We also know
that this book is more than pages ol paper on which to place
cramped scrawlings, lor vve who are ol the statl have necessarily
had to peer into the past and on into the luture ol the typical
careers ol the annuals. You ask what vve have Found that has
altered ordinary conceptions ol the true purpose of a yearbook?
We have seen men who reverently turn pages such as this
one, reading and recalling. We have seen Women linger this
very page, reading, and recalling. And the very ink-blots have
become symbols of lost ecstacy. Kind deeds, lriends ol the past,
the pageant ol happy occasions, and the multitude ol individually
dear recollections rejuvenates them once more vvith the spiritol
ambitions yet to be lived. But let us dwell on the present, lor We
are yet among those who are in love with lile.
The history ol the compiling ol this book has been like the
other past histories, Under lVlr. Finley's guidance the editor-in-
chief, Henry Boss, has given his directions. The one and only
time various opinions seriously clashed was at the meeting ol the
editors to decide the color scheme ol the book. There Were, it
developed, just too many women editorse-they all had previously
decided on their ovvn lavorite color scheme. The men were over-
ruled and absolutely sauelched alter their lirst timid suggestions
to the contrary, they sounded gracelul retreats under the guise ol
indulgence to leminine caprices.
Undoubtedly, vve could leel more atlection lor this volume
than would you vvho are not ol the start, for vve claim it as our
creation' 'f'f our vvork. But it has been you who have made possible
this book, you have provided the incentive and the material,
Your criticisms of past productions have made us establish and
maintain high standards. Together, vve, the student body and the
stall, have really Worked side-by-side in its production. So who
are we, then, who have only carried out the details, to be so
proprietary? We give you your creation, your vvork, the 1938

ln the hall students seem to appear from nowhere, or, to be

The consistent worth of the eltorts ol this yearls stalls has been
remarlcable. The paper has never been exceeded in its Finished
malce-up. A new order established during the First semester
restricted the Publications Qhfice to stall-members only. The new
furniture and typewriter purchased late in the previous school
term had to be conserved. Three publication stalls, lflVlBLElVl,
PUBLIC PRESS, and Tl-llg COLLEGIAN, were meeting in room
Q50 as it was, there just had to be some privacy, and the new
rule was met with three cheers from the privileged ones. An air
of ehficiency and order helped in quiclq, clean productions.
The second semester stall contended with bellicose Freshmen
who chalfed under the restriction of tradition but managed to
produce on the same high level,
So the COLLEGlAN, herald of the lvlortonites, has rendered
one more year ol Faithful service.

Through the medium of the public press the activities and worth
of Morton vlunior College are more and more obtaining the com-
munity's attention. Although the Chicago Daily News, the Cicero
Life, the Berwyn Life, the l-lome News, the Berwyn Beacon,
Cicero News, l-llasatel, and the Svornost have previously been
carrying the college news, never before has that news received
such preference. So much has the interest in us of local papers
risen that after the first semestens class elections the pictures of
the new officers were printed on the first pages of the Berwyn
'fe and Cicero Life., Second semesterfs results made the head-
-a lrving Blank, director of the public press, assisted by Marian
Van Zyl, news editor, were more than pleased with the progress
their efforts during the first semester. Each Monday a press
conference was held during which Dean Spelman would outline
the coming weelcs activities.
fmfor the second semester Marian Van Zyl was elected director.
Marjorie Wood was appointed news editor while Ed Gordon
took care of the sports department as he had done the previous
semester. Mr. Finley continued to act as adviser.
The close of the year saw Morton junior College Notes

The orphan has been legally adopted. The EMBLEM has been
permanently established as a member of Morton junior Colleges
It has grown immensely and rapidly in prestige. Not only has
it drawn comments from persons in lar otl countries, but it has been
commented upon and reproduced in many of the prominent local
papers. This was largely due to the ellorts ol Mary Lou Spinl4,
editor-in-chief, Elaine Mullan, associate editor, and Bernice
Draper and lrving Blanlc, assistant editors, whose production
reached a new high in the excellency ol their output.
During the second semester a Htriple-short" contest was held.
Money prizes were ottered by Miss G. Walker, dean of women,
who has always exhibited a personal interest in the magazines
welfare. Swamped with "triple-shorts" the editorial staff, Elaine
Mullan, editor-in-chief, Bernice Draper, associate editor, Lillian
Machewicz and Tom Muzilc, assistant editors, experienced dilliculty
in maintaining a boolq well-balanced with a variety ol types of
literature. l-lowever, in May a magazine eaual to the First semesterls
The publicity ol the local press, the interest shown in the contest
on the part of the student body, the loyal support of the rhetoric
faculty, Mr. Finley's exact and wise supervision, and the work
of the business manager, Emil l-llinsl4y, all made for the success
which the EMBLEM achieved during the year.

For the First time in years the Rlayers' Guild was supervised
by an adviser other than Mr. Robert leeter. lt was because ot
his trip to California to study at the Rasadena Rlayhouse, that the
club was Forced to seelc new advisers For the year. Miss l-l. G,

The Guild worked on Berkley Square, Retticoat Fever, and Broad-
The second semester Miss M. A. Reid supervised the club,
and for a time, the group contemplated working expressly on
Greelc plays. ln the end, a series ol short plays with small casts
were chosen, and the club members worlced on Gut ol the Storm
and Elue Moon, which was the last of the series ol plays which
were produced. A comedy, Call ol the Campus, was given at
the exchange assembly at LaGrange, and Treasure was presented
at North Rarlc A dramatic evening at which all the plays were
presented comprised the Final assembly ol the year.

But it was the Big Sister 'lea that really enabled the
freshmen and sophomores to become better acquainted. This
was followed by the l-lalloween, the Thanksgiving, Co-

The annual Mother and Daughter Banquet climaxed the
social events ol the First semester, At Christmas the Womens
Club furnished individual presents and the tree For the poor
childrens Christmas party.
The clubroom was made even more cozy by the purchase
ol new slip covers For chairs and cushions. The pennants ol

screen and two new tables were bought, and, last but by
no means least conspicuous, the "thing what talks", the

CAPTAIN TONY BASILE
The Panther Football team was somewhat shortsighted during the course of their T937 football
schedule, and although they battered their opponents from their own twenty to the opponents
twenty, when they were inside ol that marker, the Panthers couldn't Find the necessary drive to even
carry the ball across the goal line once during the past year.
Neither Doctor CCoachD George Lagerlolts hypnotic powers nor his straight power football
ever helped the Mortonites. ln the North Park game, the opener, with the ball resting on the two
yard line, a fumble costa touchdown and a loss ot 6-O.
It was a gruelling grind For the Panthers, who, led by their diminutive captain, Tony Basile,
tried hard every day to bring home at least one game, for K'l.ag" and the school, but the best they
could do was a coreless tie with Lisle. The main reason for the failure to score was because ol
poor timing ol plays. However, with the local's poor practise facilities on its sand piles, it was
little wonder that such a defect developed. There is hope that one day the schoolwillpossess a
grass covered gridiron, or even a Field.
Outstanding for the season among the sophomores were Tony Basile, captain and guard whose
stellar line play and Tight was enough to make any game interesting, Ed Hlron Man" Zalsusky who
has seen action for almost every minute of the past two seasons, Mike Babich who, besides being
an excellent blocker and defensive man, could have kicked a large percentage of the extra points,
had Morton made a touchdown. Then, too, there was George Sellen, flashy, Fighting backtield
man who carried on For the Morton cause every minute of play, Pay Fiial, whose spirited drive at
his end position was one of the highlights of every game, and last but not least, the staunch play of
those incomparable two, Svikhart and Shepard.
lf the power ol the freshmen this year was any indication, next year's team will have great
possibilities. George Basich--A-captain elect and quarterback ol the team will be back to lead
the sauad, and he threatens to use a passing attack which hs hopes ol success, l.anky john Martin
at end proved to be worth his height in gold by spearing seemingly impossible catches in the Few

A co-championship in the lllinois xlr. College Conference and third place in the illinois State
Junior College Tournament were the net results of Q3 basketball games played throughout the season
of 1937-38 by the Panther cagers.
With gloomy prospects at the beginning of the year, Coach E, A. Wright built a squad that at
the end of the season finished with a record of 'I9 wins and four defeats for an average of BQ6, the
highest in many cage seasons for the locals.
The season started with games against the Alumni who were taken 36-Q9 and another victory
over Lewis lnstitute of Chicago. Elmhurstfs varsity squad managed to hand the Panthers their first
loss of the year, 45-40, after the Panthers had repeatedly threatened. Un December Q, the Panthers
started a five game winning streak by beating fox Secretarial College.
Morton opened its conference schedule of ten games by taking Thornton in a 35-33 thriller
then resumed non-conference play by walking over Qak Park slr. 69-15 after leading Q9-3 at half-
time. Another thriller was handed Morton fans when the squad took its second l. C. C. victory
over Wright 44-43, in which Wright scored six points in two minutes in order to finish close.
However, Joliet swamped the Panthers on their annual visit to the Prison City, in the conference
game 50-35 as the locals threw away QQ out of Q9 free shot attempts. l'lowever that game set off
another win streak, this was one of seven games duration. Thornton and the Alumni Fell in quick
order, although the team had lost Pachiek and Weihs on ineligibilities.
ln the first conference match with La Grange, Morton trailed by 3'l-19 at half but a last half
splurge, peaked by a basket by Mickelson in the last fifteen seconds, gave the Panthers their fifth
conference victory, 49-48. Wilson jr. was the next conference opponent to throw a scare into the
local collegians, although the Panthers finally won by a close margin.

For the first time in two years,
a panther team finally beat Joliet,
it wasn't a conference victory
but that scarsely mattered. The
final score was 47-44, and Joliet
had made 'I3 of those points in
the last few minutes with fVlorton's
second team in the game. l-low-
ever, the La Grange game was
the exact opposite of the first
encounter, this time La Grange
overcame a nine point half time
lead to break lVlorton's win streak
at seven straight.
Starting the state tournament
at joliet, the Panthers, noticeably
off form, took a weak North park
team 53-97. In the semi-finals
tension due to the fact that the
Panther team was favored in the
ratings led to the downfall of
the team and after trailing at
halftime the Panthers finally were
beaten again, 38-Q7, marking the
first time in the season that the
team was held below the thirty
point mark. However, on the
night of the finals, the Panthers
again looked the part ofa cham-
pionship team in trouncing

Wrestling took the place ol baseball as one ol Morton jr. Colleges major sport activities for
the year, as the grapplers continued their remarkable showing against large Tour year colleges.
Most remarkable among the highlights of the wrestling season was the fact that the Panther
coaches donated their services to the college. Coaches Miles Brousil and Tony Kovanik are the
two men to whom the college wrestlers are indebted Tor their services. Brousil was a University
ol Chicago wrestler and an A. A. U. champion while Kovanik donned trunks For the University of
With the exception of co-captains Martin Ondrus and john Brezinski, the two coaches started
the year with green material and developed what turned out to be a high ranking sauad.
The regular team was made up of jerry Moro, 'VIS pounds, Victor Vosen, 'TQ6 pounds, john
Brezinski, 'I35 pounds, Martin Qndrus and john Fredrick, 'I45 pounds, Pat l-lam, 'T55 pounds, Stanley
Best and Louis Benes, 'T65 pounds, jerry perkous, T75 pounds, and joe Nemecek and Ray Drabek
heavyweights. Ondrus graduated in mid-semester, and Fredrick enrolled at that point ol the year
to keep the 'T45-pound class well represented.
Among the well-known opponents that the Panther wrestlers met were Armour Tech, Wheaton,
North Central, The University of Chicago, Northwestern University, and lllinois Wesleyan.
The biggest meet of the year was the one with the University ol Chicago held in early March,
the local grapplers took an 'l8-'I4 victory over the Big Ten representative. Qver 5OO fans, the
largest ever to attend a wrestling meet in the township, watched the matches, CThe victory was

The Panther team was carried through their victories by the Fighting spirit and alertness ol such
men as Vosen, Brezinski, Qndrus, l-lam, and Fredrich. l'lowever, the rest ofthe men did their share.
Morton lost their Tirst match to Armour Tech by a score ol 35-5, Vosen being the only victor.

The exceptional record set

Although many of the star performers of last years' team have graduated,
among them xlaclc Yuccas and William Luetzow, who by their sl4ill and
precision set many records which will long remain unbroken, we can be
rightly proud of their torch bearers, Collin Higgins, star jumper and pole-
vaulter, and Stanley Sereylta, who reigned as one of the few outstanding
weight men in the Conference League. Qther able traclcsters who have
contributed much to the squad are Ray Fijal and Roland Gianneschi.
The path of victory for any athlete in any field of competition or endeavor
is earnestness, cooperativeness, and sportsmanship, it has been just these

to malce the scores even closer, but
they still were not in the lead.
During the course of play, the golfers

Norman Ziebell is hoping that the team
of next year will be able to place just
a little nearer to victory.

valiantly carried on for the combatants. Bette
Neher, Geraldine Grodslti, and Betty Smith are
the stunt divers, practising on lull gainers, swan-
dives, and baclc Hips respectively. Maria Brana
is still worlcing hard, always hoping to arrive on
equal basis with the others. Elaine Mullan is
seen valiantly learning the dives at the edge ol
the pool. Mary Lou Spinlt, along with the others,
has Found swimming to be one oi the best possible
lriends in the last year and can scarcely wait until
they will partalte in a dip again.

For the First time, tumbling was introduced as a
sport For Morton .lunior College women. Under
the direction ol Mr, Kudernovoslqy, with the aid
ol some of the men tumblers, the girls all learned
a few triclcs to add to their previous stock.
Adeline Biasetti, Shirley Eaglesham, and Edna
Andresen spent some time practice lcip-ups. Betty
Smith concentrated on Fish-Flops. Bette Neher and
Mary Tuclcer did head and hand Flips using up
their extra energy by wallcing on their hands.
An exhibition in connection with the men,s team
was planned, and though the idea did not mate-
rialize, it is hoped that another year may see the
further growth, development, and improvement ol
a combined tumbling team.

ping pong, under the managership oF Gertrude
Ialman, had a very successful season this year.
First an elimination tournament was held and Edna
Andresen, Florence Kozeny, Shirley Eaglesham,
and Minnie Brana came out ol the First round
victorious. Edna Andresen and Florence Kozeny
played the Finals, Florence winning.
AFter the elimination tournament, a ladder tour-
nament was started which lasted the rest oF the
semester. It seems that the ping pong table oFFers
a surprise to many beginners, upon leaning over
the table to get at the ball, it impudently pops
up and more or less gently hits one in the Face.
But in spite oF that and always having to wait
indeFinitely For one's turn, it would be painlully
hard to give up the ping pong room,
