In this space, I am afforded a long wanted opportunity to express heartfelt apprecia-
tion of the many affecting evidences of friendship, sympathy, and effective cooperation
on the part of the students, faculty, alumni, and deans of Morton Junior College.
We must recognize, appreciate, and consolidate these gains in order to precipitate
an orderly irresistable advance along the entire front of understanding and cooperation
as against ignorance, superstition, misunderstanding, prejudice, shortsightedness, bigotry,
narrow-mindedness, and hypocrisy. K
Advanced training for high grade living in the America of today and tomorrow must
include rich and manifold experiences that lead to tolerance, sympathy, empathy, per-
ception, and cooperation.
YVhile college life and its variety of interrelationships and associations rightly involves
the issuance of many answered and unanswered social and intellectual challenges, in
Morton College these are both sharpened and softened by the concomitant healthful
atmosphere composed of mutual helpfulness, mutual admiration each for the strength
of the other, and a general tolerance for our common weaknesses and our inevitable mistakes.
Our community, our clubs, our councils, our teams, our faculty, and our adminis-
tration question and challenge one another. This is as it should be.
Morton education is cooperation leading to a broader understanding of, and a more
intelligent participation and leadership in, the life and activities of the larger group.

We give unending lip service to "Co-operation", but our world is falling apart
for want of it.
ll- our college can bring leaders of the decade on whose threshold we stand
to realize the totality of reality and to understand the interdependence ot' people
and the relationships which exist between events so that they may be able to
contribute intelligently and unsellishly in a great cooperative effort for the com!
mon good, college life will have made 11 eoniniensurable contribution. This book
and many other tangible results ot' such cooperation on the part of our Nlorton
College students justify hope.

The job of the social advisors may seem to
be rather a thankless job, but we're going to
let them in on a big secret now-it really isn't.
How could it be when everything Miss Bell,
Mr. Aird, and Mr. Finlayson undertake is with
the idea of our good times in mind? All the
college partiesfsoft lights, soft music, and,
just for the sake of anti-climax we might add
soft ice creamvare planned by these social
advisors. Often we lose sight of the fact
that there is a good deal of preliminary work
to be done before we can go to those affairs
for an enjoyable evening, not to mention the
supplementary work of cleaning up afterwards.
The social advisors' job seems never to end.
Before each affair there are committee meet-
ings which they must attend, assisting the
chairmen in smoothing out ever-present kinksg
during each affair they must be on hand to
see that the refreshments are distributed with
the greatest possible efficiencyg and after the
event they must put their heads together
and begin planning for future good times.
We can only imagine what our loss would
have been without the cheerful cooperation
and encouragement of Miss Bell, Mr. Aird,
and Mr. Finlayson.

Something in the way of an innovation was enacted by
the Student Council the first semester of this year. Presi-
dent Bob Nelson and members :Xlthea Soucek, Viola
Suhr, Warren Chisholm, and Jerome Mann voted and
concurred in the suggestion forwarded by last year's council
to establish a Student Council Fund. ln essence this
fund is to take care of financial requests as they arise,
such as trips for clubs and teams, and campus improve-
ments. .-Xs a campus improvement, the new blue and
orange Morton junior College banner hanging on the
campus was purchased by the council the first semester.
Oneof the more pertinent questions handled by the
Student Council this year was that of library regulation.
After numerous suggested plans and formulas had been
considered and tried, the honor system was adopted and

put into operation with the cooperation ofthe administration.
"Four Lines on the Floor" was the popular tune the
day students returned from Christmas vacation. Four
white lines were painted on the floor between the campus
and library to serve as pleasant reminders that it is only
polite to maintain silence in the halls during class periods.
At the beginning of the second semester the following
were elected to the Student Council: Donna Claire Rehkopf,
Arthur Young and Lee Koukes. Art VVerlein, who became
the new president, for the sophomore class, and Ruth
Brebis, for the freshman class were appointed by the deans
to round out the membership.
The custom of having extra-curricular groups
within the school be responsible for assemblies during the
second semester once again proved to be interesting.

and will be back in about ten minutes accord-

long suffering in many ways. A glance down
the hall in the wake of Mr. Hale and his brief
case assures us that the professor's withering
gaze and cutting tone have not failed in their
usual effect on loiterers outside the library
door. Miss Todd still wears that patient,
philosophic smile and a warm looking sweater
as she enters the room vacated by the Great
Man of the Outdoors, Inside, Mr. Aird. The
publications department is continuing to

The physics and chemistry teachers, Dr. Crum,
Mr. Thomas, and Mr.Nauman, are rather an
exclusive lotg they are known around school
mostly by their reputation, which is good
enough for us! Miss Kraemer seems to be
involved in something of a heated discourse
with Mr. XValenga of the book store. Mr.
Haberman, according to the bulletin board,
has come to the point where he is nowdemand-
ing a tenor instead of asking for one. Miss

social event or another. Mr. Gray who always

doubtlessly thinking up newer and better test
questions with which to plague her psychology

on his way to class, and Miss Morgan busily
at work at her desk are familiar sights.

Fven as we sit here at the desk leisurely chewing
on pencils for an inspiration we can hear him moan
something about "Oh, Where is that copy?" And to
all who are curious as to just what editors of year books
do with their time, there it is. Life to people on the
staff and especially to the editors is just one deadline
after another, until even the very word inspires them
with something akin to dread.
But this is not to say that we all, even down to the
lowliest typist, don't appreciate the opportunity we have
set before us in the chance to compile a year book. It's
really quite a responsibility, one that we're proud to be
considered equal to handle. Years from now when that
fellow over there is head of the Chicago Rotary Club
or when this girl here is a prominent educator the mem-
ories of their last year at M. C. will have paled some-
what. They won't just offhand be able to say the name
of their psychology teacher or that nice white haired
latly who taught them English literature. 'llhey won't
remember just who it was that carried the brief case,
and perhaps they will have forgotten exactly what the
campus looks like. And the stall' members will have
their rewartl for their work when the old annual is dusted
of? and thumbecl through once more to renew the old
memories, long since departed.
lt has been our aim to preserve for you within these
pages experiences that made our school days so different
from anything else we will experience in our lives. There
isn't a one of us who is not sorry to leave them behindft
who does not wish that there were some way to come
back to them after we have crossed the pale into life
outside the classrooms.
The stall' hopes sincerely that the 1940 Pimzefr will
make this come true through pictures, print, and the
less tangible spirit that has gone into the making of

Third in this category of cooperative functions of the
Colfegian is its eminent service as school historian. Vllhile
for me the issues of my time at Morton are the ones most
alive, l can readily see in all of the issues collected from
year to year the colorful, interesting and exciting history
ot' the college as it was seen through student eyes. And
then there is the ideal by which all the coordinated efforts
of the staff are guided: to make it possible for the men
and women to learn to use the printed page as a necessary
tool in life and as a social force. The publication of a
tract, the conducting of an advertising campaign for pro-
moting a worthy undertaking, or simply reporting club
activitiesfwhatever the occasion in later life, the person
who is qualified to do the work authoritatively is the one
upon whom the responsibility of leadership will come to rest.
The work done is representative ot' the relative realif
lation of these ideals. Yet beneath the obvious is the
knowledge that everything has been done voluntarily-Y
a pleasant task pleasantly accomplished. ln the end l can
only say this: l have put forth my utmost etliortsg I trust
they have not been unworthy or in vain.

Dean Spelman once mentioned that some people living in Cicero and Berwyn did not yet know
ofthe existence of a Morton Junior College. That statement, to seven hundred and fifty college
students, seems incredible.
The Public Press took up the challenge, and, because the editors of the Cicero and Berwyn
newspapers cooperated so readily, the Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press may be said to have
at least partially accomplished their purpose in making the community M.j.C. conscious.
The reporters acquaint readers with various broadcasts given by the college. They issue in-
vitations to the college assemblies, they publicize the dramatic activities and the operettag they
give a picture of life at Morton in and between classes, in short, the reporters try to present the
most interesting aspects ofthe college to those who pause to read through their chatty columns.
Much credit for this work goes to the tireless efforts of the director, Harriet Kaveckis, and her
assistants, bouyant Evelyne Bastlin, sober Robert Krejcu, thoughtful Henry Zbasnik, delightful
Pat Reeve, and the incredible Joseph Baron.
Published yearly, the Directory is the Blue Book of Morton, the Who'5 Who fimong the Family
and Students and Where. Names, addresses, and phone numbers of everyone connected with
the college are listed.
This year the efforts of Ethelie Vachta and Margaret Noonan, compilers, and of John Carroll,
distributor, were responsible for the neat collection of twenty-three pages of what the college
men and women consider "vital information".

A highlight of this year's drama season at M.J.C. in
addition to the Players' Guild production of Seven Kevin To
Bafdpate was the presentation at Christmas time of Fdna
St. Vincent Millay's A7ria da Capo. The Cast included
Jane Fijal, Edna Vaculik, Grace Michaels, Elaine Johnson,
and Sarah Gene Zimmerman. The strong and almost acrid
satire on war was stirringly presented.
The second semester the Players' Guild concentrated
on preparing three one act plays which were given at ex-
change assemblies with other junior colleges and at Gpen
House. At Wiright Junior College on April 16, Jane lfijal,
George Hejna, Richard Blaha, and Joseph Baron appeared
in Slree! Opinion by Patricia Reeve, the first student written
play the group has ever produced. Stephen Leacock's

Bette Personett's amatory interests in his stead. Art

their parts of the aged caretaker and his wife. Alini Piasecki
won the hearts of the audience as Peter, the eccentric old

share to make the play the success it was.

'Twas the night of November twentyffourth, the most
heavenly night of the year. Some ask, 'WYhy?". lt was
the night of the promffwhen BI.-l.C. students went to
dance in heaven.
Yes, it was truly the celestial abiding place of the blissf
ful. There were the stars of blue and silver twinkling
brightly in their places. There were the planets and the
luminous comets scattered round about. Hven the world
was there revolving slowly amid the other bodies of the
Among those heavenly orbs the lighthearted students
danced. Gone were their worrisome thoughts of Fc quizzes,
chem problems, and lit term papers. Gone were all their
earthly Cares. ln their stead gay, frivolous thoughts reigned
as the promenaders, young, joyous, and carefree, tangoed,
waltzed, and fox trotted to the "music with a liftu of ver-
satile Fddy Allyn and his orchestra.

'lihis tall the Nlenls Club held a very novel social event, a completely masculine stag partv.
Due to its complete success, another, very similar to the first, was held in April. Quite the ops
posite was the evening when certain of its members served at the Mother-Daughter Banquet.
ln addition the NIen's Club sponsored such events as the Hallowelen Party, the Father-Son Ban-
quet at which Wilfred Smith was speaker and, in conjunction with the Wiomenls Club the Christmas
Party for underprivileged children. The social event of greatest distinction on the NIen's Club
social calendar was undoubtedly the Barn Dance, to which the collegians came dressed in their
"Sunday go tha meetin' O'erhalls".
Late in the first semester the Men's Club again joined with the NYomen's Club in sponsoring
an all college tea at which time both clubrooms were opened to everyone. It has been hoped
that these teas can be continued as regular atliairs.
Under control of this club is the friendly Men's Club room which is open to all men as a gather-
ing place, complete with radio, comfortable chairs, and chess and checker games.

to the YYomen's Club, which is sponsored by Miss G.
Wlillaer, YYomen's Dean.
The club is divided into eight tribes each of which has
worked hard this past year at some special charitable
project. The members have done everything from deliver-
ing milk, dressing dolls, sponsoring the Christmas seal
campaign, and keeping the clubroom clean to assisting the
nurses at Rush Medical Center. The :Xces were chosen as
having the most worthwhile project when they furnished
the Morton Health Clinic with a sterilizer bought with
money earned by a flower sale.
The YYomen's Club sponsors the annual Mother-Daughter
Banquet, the Christmas party for the poor children followed
in the evening by the dance, and the Backwards Dance.
This year's VVomen's Club will long be remembered for the
lovely linoleum laid in the clubroom.

ON PURSUIT OF A HOBBY
Since hobbies form such an important aspect of a well-rounded life, the college
has three active clubs organized along these lines. The Radio A-Xssociation is a
group of radio enthusiasts united for the reception ol- enjoyment and education
in the fields of technical radio. ln carrying out these purposes the association
maintains an amateur radio station, WQYOT.
Students who have an interest in taking pictures, in developing them, and in
printing them, take part in the activities of the Camera Club. They discuss
their cameras, the best way to care for them, and the best way to take pictures
One of the requirements of belonging to the Saddle Club is that of being able
to get up at dawn, for that is when the members go riding at the Greentree Stables.

The Varsity Club as an organization of
letter-men devotes its activities almost en-
tirely to organizing athletics and providing its
members with a good time. The club directs
the distribution of athletic awards and helps
foster interest in the inter-scholastic sports.
Its newest development is the .-Xthletic
Board consisting of the athletic director, the
vice-president of the club, two elected mem-
bers, and the captains of the inter-scholastic
teams. This board votes on individuals to
receive awards. Probably the oldest and un-
doubtedly the dustiest of the clubs possessions
is the assembly plaque awarded the club that
presents the best assembly ofthe year. Some-
one has suggested that it be built into the
wall as a permanent fixture as the Varsity men
have won it so many times.

During the semester, the club provided
ushers for the State Basketball Tournament
and promoted a hay-ride. An athletels insur-
ance system by which the participant and the
school share the cost has been worked out
which provides M..l.C. athletes protection
against the expense entailed in the case of an
accident and injury. The requirements for
the various awards given sport participants
have been raised with the idea of increasing
the value of each.
The Yarsity Club as one of the most active
clubs in school has the largest membership of
the non-curricular clubs. At irregular intervals
a round of swimming, basketball, and refresh-
ments is held under the guise of a night-

Speaking of football, did you see our
team play this year? In spite ofa season
showered with bad breaks our pigskinners
chalked up the most successful football
campaign since 1933. ln spite of lia-
bilities in the way of injuries and poor
facilities, the team showed assets which
more than balanced the books. ln every
conflict the Panthers justified their nick-
name by showing such ferocity and fight
that nary an opposing team left the grid-
iron without feeling it had encountered
Led by fiery-topped Ptacek the squad
took all comers, including four-year col-
leges, with the same courage and con-
fidence which characterized every game.
ln fact, it was this spirit of never-say-die,
inspired by Coach Lagerlof's able coach-
ing, that enabled our eleven to play the
brand of football it did.
In the opening game of the season
lylorton ran into a pack of trouble that
goes by the name of Concordia Iunior
College. Two touchdowns marked the
margin of defeat in this game, but though
the Lagmen looked green in spots, our
mentor was quite satisfied with the show-
ing against this four year school, for ad-
ditional experience and practice would
remedy these early shortcomings. Sure
enough, the following Saturday showed
what a difference one defeat will do to
a team, for disaster came via the air
route for North Central as it battled in
vain against the Orange and Blue. This
aerial attack became one of the Panther's
greatest offensive weapons as the season wore
on. The next two games against VVilson and
YYright respectively, were heartbreaking to
bIorton's championship hopes. Both games
were lost in the final minutes by no more than
seven point margins. The VYright game was
played before a packed "house" as alumni and
students gathered for the homecoming celebra-
tions. The next Saturday DeKalb's B team
was treated to an exhibition of Morton football
prowess with our emerging victorious, 7-0.
The last two games of the season against North
Park and Morgan Park ended in ties, with no
score in the Morgan game and a 7-7 deadlock
in the North Park encounter.
One of the factors contributing to the fine
season was our first line of stalwarts. Imagine
how opponents felt when they attempted to
circle the ends only to find Ptacek, Higgins, or
Parpet, waiting to cut them down, Then de-
ciding to cut inside, they were immediately
invited to Upull up ground and sit down" by
tackles and guards, Briggeman, Thermos,
Dvorak, Broberg, Carroll, or Steblay. Steb-
lay's all-around good work won him the cap-
taincy of next year's squad. Memorable is the
excellent playing of Vilerlein, who was in the
ucentern of things all season.

'Iliirteen victories and one defeat was

THE WRESTLING SEASON
Though composed of experienced men in nearly all
weight divisions, this year's wrestling squad sutliered a
rather disappointing season. Prospects were Iiright in Sepf
temlmer with such matmen as lher, Cadieux, Hlaha, Dvorak,
and others turning out to the practices. But injuries and
stitli competition stilled the championship hopes soon after
the season opened.
At the outset it appeared that the team was going to
be top-heavy, with a multitude of heavyweights and very
Iiew Iightweights. However, it is to the lighter weights that
we must looli to Iind consistent winners. 'lihis was Richard
BIaha's first year with the grunt and groaners, but he was
so consistent with his winning that it was diHicult to tell
him from a seasoned veteran.
A liig reason why the mat record isn't studded with
victories is that the Panthers had to hattle so many four-
year schools. Nlost of the junior colleges in this area lack
wrestling teams, which necessitated Nlorton's meeting such
noted wrestling schools as Illinois and Chicagog and though
the scores in some instances looked pretty unwelcome to
Morton rooters. they were not indicative of some of the
close and hard-fought hattles we gave some of these larger
Nlr. Bedrava again coached the Panthers and proved
very valualule to the squad as mentor and friend. Coach
Bedrava during his college career held the heavyweight
wrestling title of the Big Ten conference and also the .-X.:X.l'.

So let us rememluer this year's wrestling men not as
winners perhaps, but as a team that truly upheld the Morton
Junior College ideals of fairness and sportsmanship: they
did their best.

THE BASEBALL SEASON
Hampered by lack of material at the outset of the 1939
season, and due to the bad weather that caused the can-
cellation of many vital practices, the Panther baseball team
got off to a slow start. Before the team had had a real
chance to play ball, they dropped their first game to Wilson
by a score of 19 to 1 which did not truthfully reflect the
relative merits of the two teams. The only other game
the Orange and Blue lost during the whole season was a
7 to 2 defeat at the hands of Lisle who held the Panthers
to just one hit. After dropping these two contests, lVIorton
came into its own and went on to win six straight games.
Morgan Park was the first to fall victim to the Panther's
slugging ball team. The final score of that game was 6 to 3.
Morton then travelled to Joliet where another victory was
won in extra innings by a score of 4 to 3. The Panthers
continued in their winning streak by pounding out victories
over VVright and Herzl, the latter score being 6 to 3. Records
at the conclusion of the season gave lWorton six wins and
two losses, a rather remarkable showing considering the
season's slow start.

The Panther soccer team ended the second year of its
active life with a rather hne record considering its youth at
M.J.C. Under the able instruction of Coach Kovanic and
the fine leadership of Captain tloe Tvrizicky, Morton's
soccer team won two matches and lost three.
In the spring season of 1939 the Panthers were able to
play only two games because of bad weather, both with
Vilheaton. Morton dropped the first game by the close
score of l to 0, but came back to win the second match
with the same score.
The fall season started out rather unfortunately with
the Panthers dropping two straight games to Wlheatong but
redeeming themselves toward the close of the season, Morton
downed George Williams' team by a 5 to 2 count.
Led by their peppy captain, Willie Tauer, the M.Al.C.
golfers were looking forward to a successful season of match
play this spring. Tauer's brilliant playing has earned him
the number one spot as well as the captaincy.
In number two spot Pat Scelonge will most likely do an
encore by virtue of his outstanding work in the last matches.
Bob Krejcu and laid Kosatka are slated to hold down the
three and four positions to round out the squad. Both of
these boys earned their posts through their superior perf
formances in the fall.
Last fall the clubbers won three matches and lost four.
The triumphs came over North Park, Nlaine, and Thorntong
and the losses were suffered at the hands of Wilson, Wright,
-loliet, and l,a Grange.

E PIONEER OF 19
For the third straight year the Orange and Blue tennis
team has been hovering in the upper spheres in all competif
tion. Bad weather permitted the Panthers to play only one
game in the fall season of l938, trimming La Grange in an
easy fashion. Last spring they defeated I.isle 5 to Og Joliet
fell by the same score, and I,a Grange was also beaten 5-0.
The Panthers won the State Junior College doubles chamg
pionship from YVright, and tied YYright for the state title.
The Panthers Finished second in the conference standings.
In the fall season of I939 the Panthers continued their
winning streak, sweeping everything before them. Much
of the splendid playing of the Orange and Blue tennis
teams can be attributed to the splendid work of Coach

horseshoe tournaments at this writing, the inter-curriculum
race for the intramural championship was still Wide open.

Anloutlet for the excess energy of
lNl.J.C. women is offered them through
the varied activities of the physical ed-
ucation program. This program into
which they enter so wholeheartedly aims
to help them acquire poise and grace,
bodily control, and the ability to relax
completely, and also to prepare them for
an active future life after leaving school.
Speedball, a game whose very novelty
recommends it to the women, started off
the year with a bang! Basketball, the
favorite sport of most women, reigned
during the winter season. During the
spring months, baseball and tennis claimed
the attention of every woman.
Beside the seasonal sports, the M.J.C.
co-eds found enjoyment in social danc-
ing, folk dancing, limbering, swimming,
golf, and bowling. From such a varied
program, every woman was able to choose
activities in which she was most inter-
ested as her physical education program.
The girls in the limbering class even
combined their exercises with elementary
art lessons by drawing pictures of the
CATHERINE CA 1.i.A HAN
class in action. The golf enthusiasts
blossomed out as movie stars with Mr.
Ziebell as leading man when the women
had pictures taken of their golf form.
hl.J.C.'s many parties are proof of the
importance of social dancing in school
life. Bowling and swimming are two
other of the important sports that make
for a well rounded life.
Miss Catherine Callahan, women's ath-
letic director, is the person who is re-
sponsible for this varied and enjoyable
program. With such an enthusiastic
leader as an example, the women of
Nl.J.C. have every opportunity of de-
veloping their physical program and in-
suring themselves of an active, healthy,

Speedball, which has become a tra-
ditional sport with the women for the
fall season, is an interesting game com-
bining various points of basketball, footA
ball, and soccer. A rough and tumble
game, it is enjoyed by freshmen who come
in contact with it for the first time, and
sophomores who became familiar with it
This year Lucille Tichy as speedball
manager directed the challenging for the
championship game between the morning
and afternoon classes. The tournament
which ended with the afternoon classes
emerging the victors was run otf under
her very able direction.
The success of these teams is hardly to
be wondered at considering its members.
-lane lfi-ial's swift and accurate kicking
made her a dangerous forward for the
opposing team. Helen Moritz was out-
standing as a goalvkeeper. Margaret
Carroll, Vivian Reznik, and Violet janda
developed a good passing combination.
Althea Soucek is remembered for her
hard, high kicks which helped take the
ball way down the field. Bertha Valuch's
hard and offensive playing warranted her
as being a valuable player on any team.
Marian Charvat and Bertha Valuch were
the captains of the victorious squad,
Grace Havel and Margaret Carroll ably
directed the two morning classes.
King Basketball occupies the sports
light during the winter season with the
athletic-minded women. This sport is so
wellgliked and has so many enthusiasts
that it was necessary to have two classes,
one in the afternoon and one in the
evening. The alumnae also decided to
come out and help the regular class
members play this fascinating sport.
Fundamentals began the classesg then
came drill. Mixed in with practice and
learning was a lot of fun for the women
attending class. Xvith constant practice
of the fundamentals it became evident
that the result would be accurate and
time-saving basketball players.
Margaret Bishop was elected to man-
age the basketball season and with Miss
Callahan's able and excellent coaching
the basketball season proved to be a
great success to all concerned.
Continual playing on the hardwood
floor of the girls' gym has shown that
the college women can play this sport
with as much ease as any boys' team.
:Xltliea Soucek's long, hard passes will
always be remembered. Marian Char-
vat's ease in evading her guard was a
problem to the opposing team. Sophie
Stephens could be counted on to be in
the right spot at the right time. june
Neumann showed her ability by earning
the position of guard on the evening team.
Hoovs, MY DEAR!
THE PIONEER OF 19
The "diamond" season this year was naturally welcomed
with vociferous 'Kyipee's" and an occasional l'goody" from
the feminine ranks in the college. With enthusiasm rampant,
the mechanics of catching, throwing and batting under
Miss C. Callahan's coaching were readily learned.
Putting them into actual practice proved lhe thing, how-
ever. As usual, a fourteen inch fast pitching game of ball
was played, and climaxing the season in keen competitive
style was the hard-fought class tournament.
The game itself taught the girls the valuable rules of
fair play, created a spirit of team cooperation, concentration
of powers, and bending of all energies toward an impersonal
"VVhere is the ball I used last time? The finger place-
ment and the weight suited me perfectly."
"What was your score? One hundred and sixty! It
was! You must be an old-timer at bowling."
As part of their gym program bowling is one of the
most popular sports offered to women. It is a game re-
ceiving more and more favor everywhere and one in which
women can continue to participate after leaving school. For
gym credit two games a week are required but these may
be bowled at any time during the day. Miss Callahan, in
addition to her personal help, makes available for interested
students pamphlets and written suggestions, advice on how
to improve and perfect finer techniques.

The coming of spring was hailed with bursting enthus-
iasm on the parts of both freshmen and sophomore women
alike. It meant the arrival of the tennis season and the
Round Robin 'I'ournaments, this year capably managed by
Bertha Yaluchg Finally, it meant a whiff of and an escape
into the invigorating spring breezes.
Basie principles, of course, preceded all, but once
learned, they were wielded with expert deftness by the
women enthusiasts, making the season's "racketeering" one
of very keen conipetitiong and proving the sport a joyful,
vitalizing and absorbing recreative activity.
Laughter echoes from the swimming pool where the
college mermaids tirolic. The girls take swimming for fun
as well as for gym credit. One period a week a pleasantly
small class takes the advantage of being able to improve
their aquatic prowess under the supervision of Miss Callas
han. Although it is a formal class in swimming techniques,
each girl gets individual help and is allowed to practice
what she most needs and to play in what she excells.
Diving plays an important part in the swimming pro-
gram. lsually a swimming exhibition is one of the higha
lights at annual Open House, the men and women comf
bining efforts to make the aquatic program one of the
most entertaining features.

VVith the proximity of Baccalaureate services and the
hustle and bustle accompanying the plans for Class Night
comes a realization to graduating sophomores that our days
at M. C. will soon be only a memory.-A memory,
fortunately, which we can keep in our minds and occasion-
ally, like the unrolling of a movie film, bring back before
our mind's eye and re-live.
The first semester of our life at M. C., or should we
say, the first reel of our film, might begin with a picture
of us as some three hundred college freshmen with high
school memories still fresh in our minds but with our spirits
and hearts turned to the future. YVe were no longer just
Joe and Jane, we were grown-ups, for our instructors now
addressed us as "Mr," and "lN'Iissl'.
The gathering momentum of our school work was
temporarily broken by the bfixer, our initiation into the
social life of the school by the sophomores. Firmly estab-
lished in our new positions as college students we Went to
the polls and elected Edward Kuda to lead us as freshman
class president. Assisting him were Ethelie Vachta, Jean
Pletcher, and Tom Wlhite, as vice-president, secretary, and
treasurer, respectively. Our student council representatives
were Donna Claire Rehkopf and Robert Desmond.
Our dramatic and vocal skills were attested to when a
group of us turned Japanese for one night, when The .Mikado
was presented on January 13, l939. Only too quickly
followed semester exams. Inexperienced as we Were, we
studied to the Wee hours of the morning, only to find that
a good night's sleep before the exam is sometimes of more
That initial semester seemed to give us a new self-
confidence on the wings of which we sailed right into our
second half-year. We broke all precedents that semester
by electing Althea Soucek as the hrst woman freshman class
president in the history of the college. Graham Brown,
Marcelle Ernst, and Dan Bonaguidi formed the rest of the

executive stag. Our new administrative representatives
were Robert Nelson and Ethelie Vachta. The semester
drew all too quickly to an endg and after another drudging
week of finals, we bade farewell to our sophomore friends
at Class Night.
In the fall of 1939 we returned with a new sense of
superiority, for we were the upper classmen of the college.
VVe could look down on the timid little freshmeng but, by
the time the first social of the year, the Mixer, came along
we had fully realized what a fine group of under classmen
we had. Our leaders for the first semester were Harold
Kibby, presidentg John Cervenka, vice-presidentg Vivian
Reznik, secretaryg Charles Paynter, treasurerg and Althea
Soucek, Robert Nelson, and VVarren Chisholm, student
council members. These officers led the right wing of the
Following the already familiar week of exam trials, we
embarked on our final semester at M. C. Proud as we
were, we already felt a certain tinge of sadness when we
thought of our not far distant departure from the halls of
Morton. Very thoughtfully we elected our final group of
ofiicers. This time Charles Paynter took over the reins of
our class, assisted by George Picha, Rosemary Purvis,
and Leonard Zitnik, as class ofiicers and Donna Claire
Rehkopf, Lee Koukes, and Arthur Werlein as council
With unbelievable quickness our film approaches the
sequence of 'KThe Endn. Is it really the end? In truth,
we are about to step from the familiar portals of Mortong
but, with the equipment we have been given within its
walls surely among the seemingly insurmountable
obstacles in the paths of the outside world some oppor-
tunities will present themselves upon which each of us can
begin the long climb toward the pinnacle ahead we have
chosen as our goal.

On the eleventh of September the campus began to look
alive again, and the orderly arrangement of furniture in
the clubrooms became a thing of the past. Ywitnessing the
transformation of serenity into bedlam were three hundred
young people, exceedingly proud, albeit worried, of their
new status in society-the college freshmen. They were
the three hundred persons-now full-Hedged men and
womenkwho, believing the adage that the proof of the
pudding is in the eating, had determined to fund out for
themselves exactly what this thing called college is.
On October third, these freshmen were faced with their
first important taskffthe election of officers capable and
worthy of leading their class. After much deliberation and
careful consideration of the merits of the various candidates,
Douglas Hoffman was elected president, Harvey NYittke,
vice-presidentg Virginia Busch, secretary, and Henry Hru-
becky, treasurer of the freshman class. Jerry Mann and
Viola Suhr were selected to represent the freshman class
in the Student Council.
lt was not long before the new-comers felt they had
always gone to college and could competently handle the
tasks of helping to plan socials, serve as club officers or
committee members, and make themselves generally use-
ful in the social scheme of the college in addition to keeping
up regular assignments of homework, collateral reading,
and term papers.

On December fifteenth there was a lull in the bustling
activity while NI. ll. C. students tried to select the most
valuable members of their classes. ln this election, spon-
sored by a tribe of the YYomen's Club, each vote was obtained
through the purchase of a Christmas seal. 'llhe two students
presented to the deans as the Christmas gift from the
freshman class were Loretta Manda and Norbert Michalek.
Then came final exams-a real test of the success of
the freshmen. The general underclassman opinion was that
final exams live up to their advance notices.
On January twentyfninth, a new freshman class came
to college. The class was new not only because of its one
hundred uninitiated freshmen, but also because it had a
new determination to take notes more efliciently, write
more scholarly term papers, earn higher grades, in other
words, excell in using the opportunities offered them.
The election of -loe Sakala as president, Charles liolar,
vice-president, Betty Hokr, secretary, jerry Nlann, treasurer,
and Ruth Brebis and Art Young as council members started
a new semester of fun and work.
Now, in a few months, there will be a new freshman
class. The closing of the school year leaves deep in the
heart of each freshman the desire that he, as a sophomore,
may be as great an inspiration and as pleasant and helpful
a guide to the new students next fall as each graduating
sophomore has been to him.

The portals of M. tl. C. opened wide
to admit twice as many' males as she-
males the latter part of September.
Vpon naive freshmen and hlase sopho-
mores was thrust a prolmlem of state:
who shall be class oliicers? The fer-
ment of politics filled the campus
atmosphere. Finally on the last Friday
of September weighty political issues
were shelved while M. Cfans cut
capers at the year's first social event,
the College Mixer.
ln mid-month twoassemhliesofnote,
"Wings Over America" and sneeze pro-
vokinguAllergy Pollen by the Billions",
contributed to Morton edilication. :Xt
long last came the unprecedented
Homecoming, a collegiate orgy of
snake dancing, tug-o-war, and a bon-
lire, extraordinary. "Beat XYrightl
Beat XYrightl" chanted M. J. Cfans
. . . They didn't. Then one Satur-
day he-masked, he-costumed, colleg-
iate zannies stalked the hexed cafeteria
in the annual creep-clamhake, the
Hallowe'en Party. Thus ended
One lfriday of November assembly
goers heard 'WYhite Russian Singers"
oder among other things the Lffffz'
Bro-:azz ffughi' liewhisliered Russian sire
, . , Mothers and Daughters lirolie

of Morton, the occasion, their annual
lmanquet. Masculine lackeys waited
upon the femmes , . . Vocal Virtuosi,
Nlr. Green and Mrs. Uorester enterf
tained another assembly plus the pre-
view of colored movies of college
activities . . . The newly pululished

tematic means of finding a dream girl
or a reasonalmle facsimile prior to the

Chain-breaking Santell proved by
tearing up telephone books and biting
nails the value of Mclean living" at
Decemher's first assembly. Impressed
were students by Santell's method of
getting along on less sleep . . . but
no one was wafted into the land of
nod at the annual Father-Son feast
. . . Yuletide Spirit, a necessity for
the twelvemonth was dished up a
double feature, Xmas assembly, then
a dance. Noteable perhaps was the
ice cream - cake luncheon at live
o'clock, absolutely free. Final exams
were still days away. 'Twas then a
season of forgetfulness.

class historian may ponder, Ucan one
tell about the new semester which
hegan, the new arrivals to the campus,
the spirited electioneering for class
czfhcers, the appointment ol' new
editors for Morton pulmlications, the
varied assemblies when we heard Dr.
Kirlmy on vitamins, saw the modern
creative dancers, saw the hasehall

capped these events with the gala
college social mixer in honor of St.
