Youth of America, of whom the young men and women in junior colleges everywhere form a part, devotes its thoughts to levels higher than those ol: war. Menacing threats have been thrust in the faces of democratic countries. Youth, the Future government ol our democracy, must turn its baclc on Fighting Europe and absorb itself in the preservation of peace in America, the ideal which has been Foremost in the minds of great American statesmen since 1776. lndispensable to the future safeguarding of democracy is an intelligent public opinion. Therefore, with this thought in mind, we of the 1939 PIONEER dedicate our annual to peace. VW Q. kf E Orchids to the Administrotionlpto that group of persons which hos mode our Morton Junior College possible. Through their efforts on educotioncil dreom hos become cz reolity. The odministrotion ol Morton junior College is under the direction of Acting Superintendent, Mr. Russell McDonold, ond the decrns, Miss Grace Wollcerond Mr. W. B. Spelmon. Acting Superintendent J. R. MAC DONALD Acting superintendent oi our institution, Mr. Russell lVlcDonald, is a man with whom Morton students have been associated for more than a decade. inspired by President Hutchins of Chicago University, he has exemplified truly this ideal: "Courage, temperance, liberality, honor, justice, wisdom, reason, and understand- ing-these are still the virtues. ln the intellect- ual virtues this University has tried to train you. it come what may you hold them fast, you will do honor to yourselves, to the University, and to your country." Q46 Ugg: Cgt, A true "Pioneer" ol our college is Dean of Men, Mr. W. B. Spelman, i'lis love of good sportsmanship and Fun has endeared him to all students associated with him. lniormality has been his watch-word while performing his endless duties. A graduate of Princeton's class of 'l9'lO he Finds that Princeton has its democratic ideals and traditions exemplified in Woodrow Wilson, who said, "Law by painful stage after stage has been built up always with a clear view of what the heart and con- science oi mankind demanded." Miss Grace Walker has been Dean of Women since 1927. We lcnow her for her friendliness and perhaps most of all for her magnetism, which draws us to her whether she is teaching the aspects of good literature or advising us concerning individual problems. in connection with our stress on democratic ideals, she quotes William James of Harvard. "We are Filled with a vision of a democracy stumbling through every error till its institutions glow with justice and its customs shine with beauty." 0 Olffmznzgmfzm Deon of Men W. B.

Pope, W. Reid Richards Royse Shelley Smith Spelman Stevenson Stone Thomas Todd Tucker, A Tucker, G Walker Ziebell The Dean of Morton junior College, better known to us as Hgpeln, has said, HEvery college must have three things it it is to be a good college: equipment, students, and teachers, and Morton has all threef' QT course we have, especially the teachers. It is the grandest faculty ever. We refuse to trade it lor any other faculty in the United States. Believe it or not, they are sometimes more canny than we give them credit for being. They know, ingeniously, when a student stays after class to ask o question whether he is interested in the lesson or whether he is applying a little of that well-known art ol Napple polishing". The men and women of this group have spent much of their time and energy gathering all the knowledge they possess just to be able to pass it on to us. That is, it we allow them to. Not only that, when the students are planning socials or doing welfare work, our instructors are always willing to help with suggestions and advice. We just love to mimic the mannerisms ol some of our illustrious faculty members Cnot to mention any namesb, but it is all in lun, and they are good natured enough to return similar greeting, And so, we salute our co-workers and advisors, the teachers of our junior college. Those who provide us with mental .stimuli . These candid are not exactly Ncandiedn, but they are the Way we see our faculty members most freciuentlyl Miss Bell has been so willing to help us, and always Miss French, Mr. Gray, Mr. Ericson, Miss Morgan, and Mr. Royce will remain in our memories as star examples of malcing things interesting. Cf course, Miss Darlington and her staff have helped us gain that "book Iarnin' H imbibed under the supervision of "Spel', and "Gracie" Csee Administrationlj Miss Todd has felt herself well repaid for her faith in the law of compensation. Our physics and chemistry grads say they ovve a lot to the combined efforts of F, B. Crum, E. l-l. Thomas, and R. l-l. Nauman. Mr. Shelleys stellar leanings, Miss Ellis' well-out-lined lectures, Mr. Martin's erudition, and Mr. l'lansen's lively comments added color to our natural science baclcground, not to mention Mr. Aird, the cosmopolite. Qur superior knowledge of the arts of English expres- sion are openly attributed to the faithful guidance of Miss Falls, Mr. Almer, Mr, Lang and Mr. Finley. Miss A. N, Tuclcer, Mr. Richards, and Mr. Pope lead us to relmown for our mathematics exhibit as well as explaining the Hxlsn and uylsn of things. Miss G. I..

Mr. Gibbs, Mr, Braman, and Mr. Kovanic have borne the brunt of many a commercial fw- ,- 1 s I1 1 41 . ,W 1 A A i I "'.,h:ig-vw" hardship. Miss pope has declared a deaf ear to complaints about 'ipsychologicaln angles. Miss Reid and Mr. Stone are quite proud of their verbally inclined prodigies. Mr. l-labermen of our music department and Mr. Ziebell of athletics have brought about Morton's rel4novvn in these Fields.

Vice-President GRACE QWAXEL . , Secretary EDWARD JELINEK . . Treasurer From out of the past comes a vision of our coming to M. C., some three hundred strong, in September, 1937. We were at the threshold of our First semester and little did we lcnow that our Future held in store for us such social events as the College Mixer, the Tally Apple Dance, the l'lallowe'en Masquerade, the Statesmen's l-lop, the Fall Promenade, and the Christmas Dance. We never will forget our First semester elections when Don l'lan- tal4 was elected president by only one vote over the total tended to vlerry Moro. The other ollicers were: Joe Sisco, vice-president, l.addie Salcala, secretary, and Richard Sedlaclc, treasurer. We were also represented in the Student Council by l.uana Weber and Jerry Moro. Thus passed the First semester, but, why had not someone warned us, too, that exam weel4 would follow? All was forgotten, however, since we were advised to lose our gloom at the Warehouse Dance. With the new semester came new elections. Robert Kass was made president, ,laclc Burton, vice-president, Sherwood French, secretary, Al Schovanec, treasurer. Dorothy Lewis and Edward Starman were the Student Council representatives. Soon the Tea Dance, the Kids' Party, the Barn Dance, the Back- ward Dance, the April Fools' Dance, the Co-ed Tea, the Spring Promenade, Qpen l'louse, and Class Night all became history. Our freshman year had passed, and we bade farewell to the graduating sophomores. 16 SECOND SEMESTER WARREN HUGHSTED . President EDWARD FISCHL . Vice-President JUNE DENMARK . Secretary LUANA WEBER . Treasurer ln September, 1938, once more the old familiar noises rang out in the corridors, bulletin boards were crowded by notices, the club-rooms were jammed with students, and the campus benches were surrounded by young men and vvomen. We vvere sophomores, novv, looking forward from superior heights to our last year at M. C. Soon social activities were in lull svving, and the tradi- tional Mixer, the Football Dance, the Masquerade, the Fall pro- menade, and hardly no time at all passed till vve were in the midst of our Christmas Festivities. We ldclced the dust of the exams from our feet at the Culoom- chaser and were ready to lace our fourth and Final semester at M. C. This last semester passed all too quiclcly, carrying with it memories of the Valentine Dance, the Kids' Party, the Backward Dance, which was postponed and Finally merged into the Spring Erolic, the Spring promenade, Qpen House, and then, 'mid mingled emotions of triumph and tears, we signed annuals, attended Baccalaureate services, dined and danced on Class Night, and then met one last time, wearing mortarboards, to receive our coveted sheepskins. 17 , ' n x 1 1 t v V. n I V ,I - I ,X"Qq 2-SM we 'kit 15 ' If if W ' vi. lf 1 X l 18 FRANCES ADCOCK "energetic" ELLEN BAXTER "aFIabIe" SOPHIE BRANDT "affectionate VIRGINIA CUMMINGS "engaging" ROBERT ERNST "observant" RALPH FUHRMAN "intrepid" WILLIAM ASHLEY, "meditative" CECELIA BELDERSON "congenial" RAYMOND BROZ "QeniaI" JUNE DENMARK "soIicitous" EDWARD FISCHL "ubiquitous" ROBERT FUXA "expIicit" THOMAS BARRY "good-naturedn LOUIS BENES "frank" EDWARD BUBL "discreet" SHIRLEY DESENVILLE "bl itI1esome" CHARLOTTE FOGARTY "pensive" HENRY GASS "dependabIe" CHARLES BARTELS "determined" GENE BERG umonlyn HENRY CHIBA "serious" EDWARD DOCKUS "Iaconic" HARVEY FREED "tolerant" ROBERT GATES "gentIemanIy" GEORGE BASICH "modest" RAY BERNATSKY "reticent" RUTH CLISH "sophisticated RAY DRESSEL "Iwigh-spirited" SHERWOOD FRENCH "unconstrained ELOISE GRILLOT "womanIy" The 1939 Sophomore Class 19 y K I g 1 tt I Ili, A I if i. ,, .I I ',.. 3 '1 X , 4 !

Treasurer What uneasiness and wonder surrounded us that twellth day ol September, '38, as we attended our classes only to be overwhelmed by those huge homeworlc and term paper assignmentsl It must certainly be that in college teachers have passed the age ol sympathy. l-lowever, our orientation seemed to reach completion by the time the Mixer came around. Then in October we elected our class otlicers. Edward Kuda became president, Ethelie Vachta toolc over the otlice ol vice-president, and jean Rletcher and Tom White received the responsibilities ol keeping the boolcs and handling the Finances. Donna Rehkopl and Robert Desmond were selected as Freshman representa- tives to the Student Council.

The other election returns brought Graham Brown as vice-president, Marcelle Ernst, secretary, and Dan Bonaguidi, treasurer. Robert Nelson and Ethelie Vachta represented us in the Council. slump-ropes, marbles, balls and roller skates were some oi the attractions at the Kidis party, March 4th.

The women Finally know how it feels to say, "Order anything you wishf' CI bet many Fingers were crossed under the tablesll April 22nd the college went agricultural at the Barn Dance. Two weeks later jokes were the rage at the April l:ool's Dance. Our work, combined with that ol the sophomores, made the college Qpen House in May another big success. Then came our thrilling Spring Prom when we tripped the light fantastic to music we will never iorgetl After Class Night and one year of growing unity, we must bid adieu to the upper- classmen. They have made our junior college days happy ones. 29 Paul Abrahamson, john Aimone, Louis Alessio, Qreste Alessio, Russell Allen, Edward Andrlik, Frank Apuzzo, Frank Ashley. joseph Baron, Milton Bartos, l-lelen Basile, Eyalyn Bastlin, Raymond Bauml, Earl Baumruk, Bernice Becker, Robert Becker, Virginia Begitschke, jean Belzer, Alice Berg, Doris Bergenthal, Ruth E.

But first we must tell you we are grateful not only because you fellow students trusted us to represent faithfully this past year in college, but we are grateful to you, too, for the experiences that we have had in working on your book. The enjoyable times we have had working on it all fit into the book like so many invisible pages. Perhaps you can understand, then, that naughty little urge we feel that makes us want to wink at each other like we know some delightful secrets about your annual that we will not-Mor rather cannot-tell. Possibly you would like to be let in on a few of the things that go on in the office. Well, life is just one deadline after another down there. That old saying about the thief stealing up in the night when you least expect him applies more truly to deadlines than it does to thieves. And a deadline does leave its effects. Every time one is broken our dear editor does away with his fingernails again-that is, if they have grown enough since the last timemfand gently, but firmly, reminds us of how time flies. But that is not all, Before long printers, publishers, and engravers begin making life miserable, and before we know it and in spite of us, the Pioneer makes its way to your hands. Kate Douglas Wiggin often used the expression that the song is never ended. When the melody seemingly breaks off at one place, we can always be sure that it will soon start up again from another source. We sincerely hope that this annual will bring back echoes of the college year 'l938-39 and make your every experience live again before your eyes. 37 RAY BERNATSKY Editor-in-Chief LOUISE KENNEDY Literary Editor P.

Yes, of course, the Secretarials are always ready For anything. This active club includes, not only the Freshman and sophomore groups novv in school, but a large, active alumni and a chapter of the National Secretarial l-lonor Society, Alpha Pi Epsilon. Each year, in addition to the round at parties including progressive dinners, pot-luck suppers and Hcome-as-a-song-title" parties, various groups in the club sponsor sports tournaments, games, and Field trips. ln previous years the club has edited and published its annual magazine, SllElNlQl3l?lNlS. This year, as a departure from the general rule, it vvas decided to put the magazine out four times during the year and include a calendar ot coming events in order to keep the alumni posted onthe activities ot the club. Each year the Hcream of the cropl' are elected to membership in Alpha Pi Epsilon. After their names are read at Qpen House, they receive a pledge pin. They will be formally initiated into the society ata banauet to be held in the tall. Marking the First time in several years the Secretarials competed tor the plaque given For the best assembly this season. They presented an original Uauizn program, in which members of the audience took part. Another project of the club is publishing AIDES OF ABll.l'l'Y, a magazine printed to aid Worthy students in Finding permanent employment.

CLUB . . . a pat on the baclc for a youngster Gut of the minds of three students: jerry Moro, Roman l4licl4, and xloe Sisco, an idea was born that resulted in the formation of the Liberal Arts and Sciences Club, These students felt that Morton junior College needed a club for l.. A. and S. curriculum students to bring them together and enable them to exchange ideas, get better acquainted, develop personality, and promote the spirit of fellow- ship. With this program in mind the club vvas organized last semester. It is unique in its administration in that the supervision body consists of an advisory board of ten members under whose direction the clubls activities are fostered and directed, The board consists of five sophomores: Roman Kliclt, blames Russell, aloe Sisco, jerry Moro, and Rodney Martin, and five freshmen: Alice Berg, Victoria Chmielevvslci, ,lennie Strapazon, Eleanor Chleboun, and Tom Callahan. The chairman is jerry Moro and faculty advisor is C C. Aird. lt is hoped that the club will be able to foster the social life of its members and promote their objectives through social gatherings. A fine start has been inaugurated of the club through two highly successful social functions, which have been held. The first was a jamboree. A jolly program, community singing, tasty refreshments, and dancing constituted a delightful Uget-together". The Box Social savv a larger turn-out than the slamboree. The students anticipated another rollicking time and were not disappointed. The girls brought dainty little box lunches gaily tied with colored ribbons and full of fancy goodies. The men bid for these in the midst of good-natured competition. The urgent need for a club of this sort was shown by the large turn-out of both socials, which proves that the club has well-rounded objectives in sight and is ably fulfilling its purposes. 41 COMMERCE CLUB Business, some say, will go on and on. The Commerce Club is organized to aid business on its way, for the members ol the club are men and women who will be our future business men and business women, The members malce Field trips to important business houses so as to get a glimpse of the most realistic side of the business world. The advisor to the Commerce Club is Mr. R, Bobisud. The otticers lor the First semester were Franlc l'lobil4, Norman Strumillo, james Soldat and Louis Thermos, second semester: Eranlc l-lobil4, George podogil, Kenneth slicka, and Sherwood French, PRE-MED CLUB The ollicers oi the Pre-Med Club were Louis Benes, Floyd Shewmalce, Sophie Stephens, and Louis Adamec. The club has made Field trips to various institutions. Some of these trips have included the lllinois Research l-lospital, the Cook County Hospital, Northwestern University and Edward Hines l-lospital. The social events included a progressive supper, a roller-slcating party and the Pre-Med Assembly in April. Most important among the activities oi the club this year has been the inauguration of a Red Cross class in first aid. COMMERCE CLUB Top ROZ1'iZEEDYK, XYLEZIEN, STANEK, CAHILL.

C. women, under the directorship of Miss Frances Pope, organizing the Collegiate Choristers, They decided to hold rehearsals twice a week and to have a constitution to be signed by all the members. Both classes are eligible to hold the club ottices, which are semi-annually open Ior election. During the school year the Choristers, in their distinctive uniform, graced the stages at neighboring colleges on exchange programs as well as at our own assemblies and commencement exercises. Two ot the very successful appearances were at Wright and LaGrange. SCHOLARSHIP CLUB The members of the club consist ol students who were members of the I-lonor Society in high school and of those who have an average of B or higher in college. These students have better opportunities of personal contact with the faculty since the meetings are nearly always held in the homes of junior college teachers. The otlicers for the year: ,loe Sisco, president, Donald l'lattrem, vice-president, Luang Weber, secretary, Clarence Rott, treasurer, and Ophelia Stevens, social director. W. B. Spelman and C. C.

Well, there are certainly many vvho do at the bi-monthly meetings ol the French Club at which activities are much brightened-up by gay French conversation as well as songs, slats, and games, mostly in French, of course, The membership of this club is entirely voluntary. Much ol the club activity is carried on in conjunction with the German Club. First semester oFFicers were Ruth -leeter, Dorothy Faiza, Ellen Baxter and lvlecelaus Ptalc. During the second semester Frances Adcock, Eloise Grillot, Dorothy Faiza and Alice Berg supervised the activities ol the social year. GERMAN CLUB The German Club operates on a rather novel plan in that its meetings tal4e place in the individual classes every two vveelts rather than in extra-curricular sessions. Each class has its oFFicers, and every German student is ci member. At the meetings Miss Kraemer lectures on the cultural aspects of Germany. She discusses the literature of the country as vvell as customs and people endeavoring to interpret the Feelings and temperament of the German people, which gives the student a better basis for study of the language and understanding of the people who spealc this language.

At Christmas the lVlen's and Womenls clubs Worked together in furnishing gifts, a tree, and entertainment for the poor children at l-lowell House, The First activity ot the second semester was the Father and Son Banquet. The dads were delightfully entertained and were given plenty to eat. At this time the women served at the meal in reply to the courteous service done by the men at the Mother-Daughter Banquet. The April Fools' Dance then occupied the social attention ol the lVlen's Club.

Secretarial students now receive national recognition in the honorary society Alpha Pi Epsilon. The secretarial graduates selected by the faculty are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, service, character, and personality, It is the purpose of this society to better the position of the college- trained secretary, to assist him or her in constructive progress, and mainly to urge high ideals in business ethics. The honor students not only receive emblems of nation-wide significance, their names are also engraved on a plaque that hangs in the College Office. THE HONOR SOCIETY One of the greatest honors bestowed upon graduating sophomores is appointment to the college l'lonor Society. Students who are selected must measure up to certain required standards. All students thus honored must have an average of at least "BH, and are rewarded for having excelled in scholarship, leadership, character, and service. An impartial method of election is used. lnstructors choose from a list of graduating sophomores those students whom they believe have met the set standards. Their choices are PRESIDENT'S AIDE Election to the Presidents Aides is one of the greatest honors that Morton junior College can bestow upon freshmen class members. Using the qualifying basis of the l-lonor Society, namely scholarship, character, leadership, and service, the chief object of the presidentxs Aides is to honor freshmen students who, while maintaining a satisfactory level of scholar- ship, have helped carry out school activities and sacrificed time and energy for the good of the college. then submitted to a special committee composed of the deans and certain faculty members who then elect the outstanding students to the Honor Society. Usually five percent of the sophomore class is thus honored, and their names are placed on a permanent school honor roll. Thus the l-lonor Society not only represents the last outstanding academic honor that Morton junior College can give to its students, but it also acts as a goal for those who follow. S Selection of the Presidents Aides also helps provide organizers and leaders for the class activities of the following year, when the more experienced sophomores will have graduated. It is upon this group of freshmen, who during their first year have shown promise for future successes and who have deserved rewards for services already performed, that Morton slunior College confers the first aca- demic honor that can be given to an entering freshman.

Toward what end is all this hustle and bustle? Surely it will make no dihference either to us or the teacher twenty years from now whether we got an A or B in the course. lust what is the longer view on education? ln the library near the desk is a picture which seems to answer that question. It represents all that l want Morton ,lunior College to give me. l want to gain the Faculties which will enable me to open up a new world Filled with things which l have discovered myself and not things which someone has led me to see. l want to be imbued with a capacity to rightly appreciate and evaluate everything around me. l want to be able to keep a questioning attitude towards everything which l do not know for a lact as the truth. l want Morton ,lunior College to prepare me to live a life not too lar from the standard already set up for us by the great men of whom l read in my books. l want to gain the wisdom which as Edward Arling- ton Robinson puts it, is not like dried leaves under a tree but like a dawn which comes up slowly out of an unknown ocean. Then, on Commencement Day, l could not breathe with a sigh of relief, "This is the end," but must say with a voice Filled with eager expectation, "This is the beginningln -JEAN BUSHING 59 ERUDITI I .

ZIEBELL Men's Athletic Director The Athletic department, Norman A. Ziebell directing, gave M. C. students another year of enjoyable entertainment in the way ol regular gym classes and interscholastic sports, The gym classes were based on the idea ol getting physical education in a manner which is most pleasant and which can be enjoyed in alter college lite. With this in mind, the regular gym classes offered were dancing, swimming, bowling, volleyball, juggling, rope twirling and similar activities. Morton ,junior College justly boasts one ol the most varied programs ol any junior college in the state, rivalling some ot the Four year schools in this Field. lntercollegiate sports and their mentors were as follows: football coach, George Lagerlof, baslcet- ball coach, Elvin A. Wright, tennis coach, William McBurney, traclc was handled by Douglas Finlayson, baseball ccach, l.eMoine Batson, and wrestling was under the supervision of Edward Bedrava. The members ol college teams who have earned their letters are eligible For membership in the MM" club. The Morton slunior College Varsity Club has established itsell as a necessary aid to college athletics. ln addition to sponsoring several new teams For intercollegiate competition, the Varsity Club has submitted a petition to the superintendent, demanding thorough physical examination before any player is allowed to participate in any college sport and also requiring that someone with sutticient medical lcnowledge be present at all inter-college contests. The petition is now being considered by the school otlicials. The past year has been a memorable one lor all those interested in sports. The members ol the Varsity Club have seen the fulfillment ol their hopes and ambitions as Morton junior College became the First junior college in the country to adopt athletic insurance For its athletes. This project was initiated by the club and forced through with the able cooperation ol the Collegian. The members ol any inter-scholastic teams are naw able to secure the insurance lor a moderate sum since the school shares hall the burden. The insurance is not compulsory. The "MH club has steadily climbed to a respected place in college lite. lt is acquiring regalia, For new, larger pins have been obtained. With these new pins and with the varsity letter the members ot the "M" Club are easily recognizable, and the worlc ol the club makes its members proud to be a part of the only exclusive club in the college. Throughout the year the club has maintained distinc- tion in the frequency and regularity of its meetings. Besides its weelcly meetings several night meetings have been held. Basketball and swimming were the main events of these occasions. 74 BASEBALL ' ' FOOTBALL ' ' TRACK A VICTORY ' ' A DEFEAT ' ' ' i'WE'LL GET 'EM NEXT TIME!" The officers of the club, Warren I'Iughsted, George Basich, Robert Kass, and Milton Tlapa were auicI4 to start an active year. The first event on the calendar was the completion of a new written constitution. Now the constitution is written in full and has several changes and new features. The rules for club eligibility and letter-earning are definitely stated and no one is admitted who has not fulfilled requirements. The letters for cheerleaders and managers have been changed slightly. Theywill have identification, while all other letters shall remain the same. Sweaters are to be plain royal blue, and only captains of teams are allowed white sweaters. A permanent record of activities of all teams will be maintained, and the managers will be re- sponsible for all data such as team enrollment, results of all games and sauad pictures. The new written constitution is an instrument which insures the continued success of this well- worthwhile organization.

We really had one this yearl The scores? Well, what about theml You can't determine the caliber of this team by the scores of their games. But to enlighten and ease your mind, here's the way our season shaped up. We won three and lost three, a feat which, in itself, is an accomplishment which stands out against Morton teams of the past. Qnly one bad score stands against us, our '19-O defeat at the hands of the powerful Concordia eleven. The fact that Concordia is a four year school with experienced, heavy upper-classmen to supply their football talent will give you some idea of what our boys were up against. To recompense for this blot on our sheet, we took Lisle in tow and gave them a Q0-O beating just to show we could dish it out as well as take it. The other two teams which line up to take a bow before our fighting bunch of Panthers were North Park and Morgan Park. The two remaining games were given up to Wright and Wilson after a tearing, smashing, battering, fighting sixty minutes of play, by scores of 'IQ-O and 6-O respectively. The score of the Wright game gives no indication of the hard, closely fought battle or the grim courage and determined stand of Coach Lagerloffs gridders against their strong opponents. The "breaks" of the game eventually proved to be the deciding factor. l say ubreaksn with no intention of detracting from the clean spirited, commendable abilities of the Wright squad, but nevertheless it was due to an intercepted lateral and a faulty center pass under adverse circumstances that they were able to score. But even with the score against them, and knowing well enough that it just wasn't their day, there wasn't, for one moment, the slightest let-up from the driving, pounding, tireless efforts of the M. C. eleven to reach their opponents goal line. What? The one who furnishes the spark to the teaml There just isnlt anyone like that. Why, that whole outfit is just one solid bolt of lightning, but if you want to take that bolt apart to see what it's made of, you'll find Gene Berg and George Basich right there in the hottest and thickest part. Boyl You shouldnt have gotten me started on a subject like thatl That kid, Berg, is the fastest, gamest, fightingest guy on two feet.

MUMS ' ' CHEERS ' ' STRATEGY TOUCHDOWNS ' ' INJURIES ' ' ' SPORTSMANSHIP COACH LAGERLOF CAPTGEORGE BASICH sprinted and kicked, had his two cents in every play, and didn't let up till he brought the ball to North Parlcs two-yard line when he had to be taken out of the game because of an injury. And Basich? Why, that boy is just an all-around pile driver with a Hnever-say-die" spirit. Consistent and reliable, with a maximum of ability, it was a hard blow when he was lost to the team clue to an injury incurred in the Lisle game. But no less great were the other members of the team, the plowing right hallbaclc, Bauml, the charging, blocking guard, Werlein, the hard running ends, Martin and Hl2ed" Ptacelc, who has been elected next year's captain, the capable l'loudelc, Broberg, Yuccas, Blaha, Kass, Vranek, and Brickwell all were instrumental in giving M. C. one of the best football teams it has ever had. 77 Hllllllilll Stlllll After the close of the basketball season last March, the Grange and Blue cagers from Morton were able to take a resume and look back on a record well marked with victories. The squad dis- played enough potential ability that despite handicaps and untimely misfortunes, they were still able under the remarkable coaching of 'Buckf' Wright, to take second place in the State Tourna- ment and to take a respectable spot in the lllinois ,lunior College Conference. The squad consisted of the following, at right-forward position, the responsibility was taken by three men, Ed slelinek, Milt llapa, and l.ee Koukes. l.eft-forward position was in the hands of Norm Strumillo and Bob ptacek. Captain xlohn Martin played center and was relieved by Bob Roeske and Milt 'llapa who alternated at forward and center. At right guard, Bill slugovic and Gordon l'lart alternated. The left-guard position was in the hands of Ed Kuda, Wayne Schroeder and Elmer Venclik, William Joyce managed the squad and George Velan was official score-keeper. Playing their initial game of the season against lllinois Wesleyan, the Panthers displayed such remarkable team work and accuracy that although they lost by a few points, they were slated as the team to beat in the Suburban League. The final score of the lllinois Wesleyan game was 4'l-35. At the end of the half, Morton led by the score of Q5 to 16. After the game was over they had earned a new nickname, the Htornadoes in bluef, The Panthers defeated Thornton in their first conference game. The teams were evenly matched and it was a nip and tuck battle all the way. At the close of the half the score stood Q4 to 'l5 in favor of the Wrightmen. The final score was 59 to 45. ln their next two games, the Panthers defeated l.a Salle 53 to Q7 and Thornton 51 to 37. They then lost their next three games in a row, The first game was lost 37 to 36 to Wright ,lunior College in the last ten seconds of play. ln first semester finals, Morton lost its second and third game in a row to La Grange and to North Park by the score of 43-47. ln summarizing: for total points scored for the season, Norman Strumillo was high. Ed slelinek, Bill slugovic, Captain john Martin, Milt llapa, Bob Roeske, Ed Kuda, Gordon l'lart, Elmer Venclik, Lee Koukes, and Wayne Schroeder were next in the order named. For the high point of any one game, Strumillo and Jelinek were tied. For points scored during the tournament, xlugovic was high Standing Ahloyce, Venclik, Jelinek, Tlapa, Roeske, Ptacek, Koukes, l-lart, Velan.

J Hililllli SiHSilN The increasing interest in this sport shown by the student body promises wrestling a brilliant future at Morton. The wrestlers must be given credit for the admirable, fighting spirit they displayed throughout the season. Vkfith the exception of a few seasoned veterans, Coach Bedrava had to build his squad from green, first-year men. james Cadieux at 118 pounds, jerry Moro at 1.526 pounds, Victor Vozen at 135 pounds, jack l-lall at 145 pounds, Raymond Suchomel at 155, Richard Dvorak at 165 pounds, Leonard l-loffman at 175 pounds, and William Uher in the heavyweight class composed the regular team, Cther men who saw considerable action were: Raymond Friedl at 126 pounds, l-larold Kibby at 135 pounds, Meceslaus Ptak at 145 pounds, john jarmak at 145 pounds, William jahnke at 155 pounds, and Edward Strejc in the heavyweight division, Almost all of the above are only freshmen, and with the experience gained by them this season they should form a very powerful combination next fall. Co- captains jerry Moro and Victor Vozen, and jack l-lall will be graduated in june, but there are many promising replacements coming up for each, Lack of experience in the newer men and the loss of several old timers by ineligibility were the two handicaps that the Panthers had to contend with from time to time. Outstanding during the past season were the performances of Co-captain Vic Vozen and Dick Dvorak in the 165 pound class. These boys represented the Grange and Blue very well and nearly always could be counted on for a victory. Bill Uher of the heavyweight division also deserves special mention, he displayed much potential ability. The most important meets of the year were those with the University of Chicago and Armour lnstitute of Technology. Though the Panthers fought desperately to defeat the University of Chicago as they had the previous year, the could gain no edgeway with their powerful opponents. The first meet, on December 16, ended disasterously for the Panthers. The final score was: University of Chicago-40, Morton junior College O. ln their second meeting of the season on january 1Q, they were again defeated by the much closer score of Q1 to 15.

The return of many members of last year's squad, which had a fairly successful season, insures at least a respectable showing for this seasonls team. With veterans such as Bob Kass, in the discus, shot and high jump, Harry McCartney in the mile, Gene Berg, Bob Rasmussen, Harvey Freed and Charles Pristopinslcy competing in the dashes, and Ed Starman, in the discus, the team has great possibilities. New men who add much strength to the team are ,laclc Yuccas, Bill Goding, Russel Allen, Ed Kuda, George Guillaumin, and Bob Bonaguidi. 82 Pristoupinsky, Coach Finlayson.

The first match of the season was lost to Wright junior College by the close score of 5 Q to 6 Q. Morton swamped Joliet in the second game of the season by the score of 9-3. ln this match, both peter Plepel and jerry Toman won three points while holding their opponents to O. ln the next three matches, Morton managed a victory over North Parlc and lost to Thornton and LaGrange, giving the team a record of two won and three lost for the third place in the lllinois junior College Conference. l-low many times have you heard fellows call tennis a sissy gamer? Well, we wonit talce time or space to argue the point, but even if it were true, then old M. C. certainly has a fine team of capable, hardened Hsissiesi' with enough stamina and perseverance to provide a man-sized job for all competitors who aspire to relieve us of the conference tennis championship, which our raclcet wielders have won two years in succession. ln freshman Bill Kratlty we have a man capable of taking down last year's best. Paired with AI Buividas they make a strong doubles team yet only a shade better than the two teams of Sisco, Vaselc, and Schroeder, Roche. Sisco, Vaselq and Schroeder sticlt right behind Kratlty and hold down the main singles berths while receiving dependable support from Salcala, and Ernst. The strong aggregation of stars brought forth by the freshman class bid fair to malqe this years team even stronger than last year's, which won every one of its matches. This year's regular team is composed of Kratky, Sisco, Vaselc and Schroeder, singles, and Kratlqy, Buividas, Sisco, Vaselt, and Schroeder, Roche, doubles teams. Intramural lntramural sports were under the direction of Joe Sisco, head of the intramural board. A variety of activities were otlered to the student body and the men entered into the sports with much enthusiasm. First along the line were the Freshman and sophomore tennis singles which were won by Joe Sisco and Bill Kratky, respectively. After a hard-fought battle, Kratky and Buividas conquered Sisco and Vasek in the Finals of the doubles match, giving the Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum a substantial lead in the race lor the intramural trophy. The Commerce curriculum closed the gap when Norman Strumillo won the l-lorseshoe tournament and the Commerce team won the basketball tournament. Ping-pong was delayed this year to the disappointment of many students, due to the fact the room which was formerly occupied by the ping-pong table, was used for other purposes this year. A challenge lrcm LaGrange, however, led to a tourney being started and a team chosen. The year 1938 brought along with it a totally unexpected surprise-the appearance of a M, C. soccer team. The team was organized in late October, but because of its tardy organization was unable to participate in any kind of league competition. Nevertheless games were played with such 'Ksoccer schools" as Wheaton College, Mooseheart, and Morton l'ligh School. lronically enough, the First four games terminated with the identical count of 4 to 'l. ln these tilts the members ol the squad displayed remarkable defensive ability, their ollensive prowress was a trifle lacking, however, and as a consequence, the team Finished on the short end of the score in each case. What was undoubtedly the most thrilling and the most closely contested encounter also proved to be the concluding one of the rather short season. With an experienced Wheaton College team as the foe, it appeared that the Panthers would easily be beaten, however it was necessary for the Wheaton team to exert a maximum ol etlort in order to emerge victorious-eand then only by one goal. Qur Panthers retaliated brilliantly later in the spring season with a W-O victory over the Wheaton aggregation. Back Row4Koukes, Coach, Camphouse, Dressel, Knol, Jelinek, Mgr.

L. ROZHON Social Chairman C. CALLAHAN Women's Athletic Director With the aim of encouraging good sportsmanship, the Womans Athletic Association ol Morton Junior College promotes many activities For just that purpose. It not only Fosters clean sportsmanship and recreation for the women of the college, but it strives to help its members lead healthier and Finer lives. Plans and arrangements are made by the board of directorswhich consists of ollicers and indi- vidual sport managers. Last fall a new novelty which is lcnown as speedball was introduced at M. C. which consisted ol a combination of soccer, football, and speedball. It proved thoroughly successful, and all enjoyed playing it. Basketball followed as a winter sport. Then came baseball and tennis to talce up the spring months. Bowling continued throughout the entire year. Qne ol the most outstanding activities ol the W. A. A. is their annual assembly program. This year a circus was presented, and the members devoted all their spare time and ellorts to malce it a sruccesgf. The circus was under the direction ol Linda-Lillian Rozhon, who acted as ring-master lor t e a air. This year the annual play-day at DeKalb Teachers College was called all, but since some un- ltnowingly attended, a pleasant day was spent as special guests ol DeKalb.

And it certainly proved to be a favorite, lor the turn out warranted two special classes. The rules were changed slightly and a combina- tion of speedboll, soccer, and football were played. Three teams were chosen. Captains were Linda- Lilian Rozhon, Alice Cihalc, and Marian Charvat respectively. Eloise Grillot starred in her position ol goal-lceeper, while June Denmarlc and Linda Rozhon vied honors for malting goals in their positions ol right inner and center forward. Margaret Noonan showed her capability as a wing, while Althea Soucelc proved to be the best defense player on the team. Cthers who showed outstanding ability were Marian Charvat and Alice Cihalc.

Through the excellent coaching of Miss Callahan, and the Fine management ol Emily l'lrusl4a, the baslcetball manager, the women found practice evenings lull ol fun and excite- ment. They improved their shooting and passing, and relearned fundamentals to such a degree that they themselves were proud of the results. June Denmarlcls unexpected baslcets, Florence Ko- zeny's standing still shots, Linda-Lillian Rozhonls close and precise guarding, Althea Soucelcs long passes all are recollections that cannot be stored away. 89 Front Row-Marge Noonan, Linda Rozhon, June Denmark, and Eloise Grillot.

As previously, the women played fourteen inch fast pitching ball. lnstead of playing team games the women con- centrated on techniques. They learned the correct ways to throw, catch, pitch, and bat a ball. After constant practice, a tournament climaxed the season. Eloise Grillot proved her ability as a Fielder, Bette Neher starred once again as a fast pitcher, Linda- Lillian Rozhon proudly showed her batting ability, and June Denmarlc outshone as a catcher. But the freshmen were not to be outdone, Althea Soucek was their star "Slugger", with Violet Jando, Vivian Reznilc, and Alice Cihalc shining in the outfield. A sad note entered the closing ol the college year, for this was the last seasonal sport For the sophomores. Although the season ended too quickly to please the players, the outstanding success and enjoyment it gave to those participating must be attributed to the coach, Miss Callahan and the manager, Florence Kozeny. This year's bowling group was considerably larger than the one ol last year. It seems that college women are following the trend of women all over the country, for bowling among women has shown a remarlcable increase especially in the last few years. The Collegian sport page has contained many bowling write-ups during the year, most of them written by Miss Catherine Callahan, and bowling pamphlets and information was given out freely to all women talcing the sport. Bowling instructors at the alleys were ever willing to help beginners as well as Hold hands", and their Fine cooperation during the year has been appreciated by women and men alil4e. l'laving become acquainted with a recreational sport as valuable as bowling has proved to be, college students continue to enjoy and prolit by this sport lor years alter their college days are over. Tournaments are played at the end ol each semester. Women who have retained high averages during the year are Florence Szot, Cecelia Belderson, Emily l'lrusl4a, Louise Kennedy, Eloise Grillot, and Florence Kozeny, who brought her average up considerably during the last hall ol the semester. Tennis Cool fall winds and warmer spring breezes spelled tennis to all of the active sports-minded women of Morton Junior College. To climax the day with an active game of tennis was an ideal thing for these women. Each fall and spring the W. A. A. holds a tennis tournament to determine the most able woman tennis player. Last fall no tournament was held, but the spring tournament made up for it. The procedure followed in selecting a tennis champion is by elimination, with regulation tennis rules. Violet Janda was elected the tennis manager, and she had charge of the sport this year. She supervised the tournament and made all the necessary arrangements. This position well suited her, for she proved to be an excellent tennis player herself. The courts most in use were the Clyde Parlc Courts, although several women played off their part of the tournament at the Berwyn Parlc Courts. With the selections ofa tennis champion, the season officially closed. Manager Betty Neher once again took charge of the swimming as she had last year. l'ler capability and dependability as a swimming manager was well tried out last year. Under her capable direction a water pageant was presented at the College Open l'louse May 5. ln quantity and in quality this yearfs water pageant far surpassed the one of last year. Two of last years best swimmers, Dolores Tarson and Betty Smith, aided the taslc of getting the show together. Although the turnout of mermaids seemed especially small during the winter season, the spring and summer sessions showed considerable improvements in the number. Familiar sights were graceful divers Bette Neher and June Krupar and Betty Smith attempting endurance and speed in her crawl strolces. Swimming is one of the few sports that continue the whole year round. The laclc of swimmers during the winter months was due to the cold weather and rislcs of colds. Then spring and summers months are always favorites with the women swimmers, for the water not only satisfies their desire to swim, but is refreshing and cool against the heat of the day. 91 Front Row-Flo Kozeny, Vivian Reznik, and Violet Janda.
