MAC LEAN It was a happy thought on the part ol the editors ol the T942 Pioneer to pervade it with the rustic theme. ,lust as, HBreathes there a man with a soul so dead that never to himself hath said, llhis is my own, my native land,m so an individual has never lived who has not talcen time to enjoy and appreciate the beauty ol the world vve live in. The vvorld, as it is, need not be 'ltoo much with usi' il we spend more time, both actually and vicariously, vvith the simple, real things ol lile as our lorebears did. Those vvho went before us loved this country and were ready and willing to Fight lor it because they really lcnevv it. There are still plenty ol places and opportunities to l4novv our country as God made it. lalcing advantage ol these opportunities should be a part ol the education ol every American.

MQCLEAN PAGE 6 oavb 4' 0 bucafion Mr. George Petru President Richard W. l-loltman Secretary Charles Nowal4 Mr. Edward W. Chodl Mr. A. M. janecelc Qne of the pleasant experiences that comes to the president ol the hoard ol education oi Sterling Morton l-ligh School and junior College is the opportunity to examine carefully the products ol the talents and slqills ol stuoents in school. The Finest example is the Pioneer ol Morton junior College. It is a happy combination ol the spirit ol youth, the judgment of early adulthood, and the promise ol maturity. Each year when l read it l add to my thanlcs lor America, my gratitude for the sound common sense, sympathy, and understanding ol the youth ol America, The 1942 Pioneer with its rustic theme is especially pleasing to a Ucountry gentlemanli who has always loved the simple things ol lile and has spent much time in the Woods and Fields.

Walter S. Pope! Grace Walker Some oF our great national leaders point out that We are moving into an era when America vvill assume the leadership oFthe vvorld, politically, economically, and socially. To do so requires training in our schools and colleges, practice in shops and oFFices, and service oF a high order among our Fellow men. ln Washington's day young men were sent to Europe to get training at the Famous universities. ln Lincoln's time a vvell- rounded education required degrees From our rank- ing Eastern colleges, but today vve Find in our own community the opportunity to acquire much oF that training in the junior college. l'lere in the class- room may be had the information necessary as a basis For clear thinking. ln our many clubs and social activities is provided opportunity For practic- ing the principles vve have learned. Cn the Fields and courts oF inter-collegiate competition, courage and good sportsmanship are developed. Verily the Frontier of opportunity is today Found in our very midst at Morton Junior College. WALTER S. POPE PAGE 'IO Rustic liFel Why, on the edge of one oF the Worlds great cities in the vvar-torn year oF 1942, have you taken this theme For your book? You have nevertaken anything remotely like it before. All over our country we are aware that minds are thinking thoughts they have never thought beFore. We Americans and especially vve city people vvho have valued material prosperity so highly, have made getting and spending such a major part oF our lives, now have other aims beside which the earlier ones seem trivial and meaning- less. The complexities oF liFe, achievements by vvhich we have measured a nation's greatness, have betrayed us, have made the Far Flying airplane and the explosive to rock our world. From these complexities we turn to the simplicities of liFe-the rural virtues-the reality and innocence and beauty and Freshness oF this green earth. May your yearbook long remind you oF this instinctive direction oF your thought in the year T942 j.

Rit up Edit ' yv'--OK,-2 Qne permonent, moteriol memory of M. C. is the yeorboolt-the PIONEER. This so importont volume holds between its covers ond on its poges the greot ond the incidentol, the fomilior ond the olmost elusive recollections of school. lt cherishes the memories of friends ond ocquointonces ond teochers ond clossmotes. l-lere con be found, cimong the scribbled witticisms ond well-wishes, the foces we hove long seen ond the ploces we hove long been. It will be more thon the printed poges of o boolc, it will be more thon ony stirring words, it will be more thon the countless pictures, it will be school, it will be life, The recorded deeds connot hope to reploce those that hove been experi- enced, but whot o color they con coll forthl Youth seeks ever the future ond strives for un-mode memory, oge loolts ot the post ond lceeps long-dormont hopes ond dreoms. The PIQNEER is o teoser. It teoses the mind ond stirs to reality the things pictured here. Before this boolc went to press, there wos ci moze of soles conferences, controcts, choice of personnel, plons, loyouts, ond triol ideos. Thot wos the embryonic beginning of o work which begon leisurely, but whose growth increosed both in mognitude ond size. As eoch deodline opprooched, the worlq become more involved until ot lost only detoils had to be cleoned up: the copy to be written over, the club officers to be identified, ond the pictures thot were to oppeor in certoin sections. All of these ond o thousond more things occupied the time of stoff members ond editors in those lost hectic hours. l'lere you hove the finished product. The editors, time for compiling the bool4 is over, your time for reoding it hos just begun, This boolc represents you ond what you hove done ot M, C. during the post yeor. lfoch signoture you find scrowled throughout the poges represents onother friendship mode during hoppy school doys. As you ond your clossmotes go forth to the vorious jobs ond coreers you hove chosen,there will olvvoys be one tongible memory thot you will tolqe with you-the i942 PIQNEER.

This is the Big Day, a day of copy-read- ing, page layouts, ol strilcing things out and putting others in, of assignments handed in, of hair-tearing, and of hearing people mumble to themselves as they read. Thus a current Collegian davvns over the horizon ol student life.

After final judgement has been passed, the accepted pieces go to designated places on various pages, headlines are produced by the editors, lines and letters are counted and recounted, and soon the pile of manuscript is ready for the publisher, the Berwyn Beacon. Wednesday passes silently. lhursday, the proofs come back from the Beacon office and are painstakingly gone over by proofreaders for mistakes and omissions. With forced calmness, the editors see the corrected proofs leave again for the Beacon. Qn Friday, clean sheaves of Collegians reach the school and are distributed to the students on the campus.

The inlormality of the clubis brief Weeltly meetings sustained interest and aroused a new appreciation ol the Fine art of riding which in turn determined the success of the club. The vveelcly Friday morning rides al one hour were hardly suFlicient to satisfy the urge to ride, there- fore in addition, early morning breakfast rides, all day rides, tvvo hour rides, and even hay rides were plcinneid and executed. When the weather proved unfavorable lor trail rides, the indoor ring was uti ize . This year lor the First time, a committee was selected to draw up a constitution which was introduced to the club upon completion. ltis acceptance made it etlective immediately. The women ofthe club received W. A. A. credit whereas the men received regular P. E. credit lor their participation in the weelcly rides.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB Because of crucial happenings in the world today, and their significance to our own country, every citizen should feel it his patriotic duty to lreep abreast of all the news. With this aim in mind, the International Relations Club had invited many learned speakers to lecture on various topics after which panel discussions were held to allow the members to express their individual views and to asl4 questions, The highlight of the year was the International Relations Club Conference, which is held at a different college each session. A specified number of delegates were sent to represent M. C. While attending this conference, they met educators from all sections ofthe country who addressed them with subjects of current events, at a later time the collective student group conducted its own forum. DEBATERS BERAN CIZEK WRIGHT VEAGUE COACH CHERRY With three members of last year's debote squad gone, Coach Cherry found difficulty in repeating the championship performance his debaters turned in last year.

Sweeping with ease through their early tourna- ment engagements at North Park, the squad went into the remaining tournaments with a vigor that gave indication of a strong team for next year. PAGE 52 GUILFORD LARIIVIER I-I. I-I. FINLEY lvl. L. FALLS AT. ALIVIER MENS CLUB PIONEER, COLLEGIAN EIVIBLEIVI PUBLIC PRESS, DIRECTORY ACTIVITY ADVISORS What does the word Uadvisorn mean to you? Webster says, "One who has the power to advise." To the Morton ,lunior College man or woman an advisor is more than a meaning, more than a mere guide, he is a person who aids student activities because his interest is with the students. The education ol a college man or woman is incomplete unless he or she has Iearned how to participate in club and committee functions, Man is a gregarious animal, and college social Iile aids in the adjustment ol the bashlul frosh to the confident sophomore. The steady and encouraging hand of an advisor places responsi- bility in the studentis hand in moderate but ever increasing proportions. This sI4iIIluI manipulation ol the students abilities by the advisor results in a richer and better understanding of a college education. Advisors are one group with one aim. To be sure they may have ditlerent methods ol approach, their personalities may vary, and their Field ol interest can be narrowed to a particular subject, yet they all aim at a closer tie between the student and teacher and the school.

This yearls hardvvood aggregation, performing as nobly as their tutors might have expected them, placed second in lllinois ,junior College competition and established itself as an outstanding team displaying speed, slcill, offensive ability, and defensive balance. Pcssiblythe only weakness the Panthers revealed was a physical one, lacl4 of height. ln the scoring department, the Fenclmen amassed a staggering total of 816 points for the season, or an aver- age of fifty-one points per game. Their erstwhile opponents salvaged a 35.37 average on 556 counters. l-lerzl was lvlortonfs host in the initial tilt of the season and were tagged for a 53-31 defeat. Perhaps the Panthers most disheartening setback was the double overtime game at De Kalb with the Northern lllinois State Teachers College vvho vvon the decision, 36-34, in the closing minutes of the second overtime with a long shot from mid-floor. The only tvvo one-sided defeats of the season came at the hands of the joliet five which had a superior height advantage and displayed uncanny sl4ill in shooting. The Orange-and-Blue lost these encounters by scores of 50-39 and 50-29.

The team was formed from a large group ol candidates, only two ol whom-Wayne Kvasnicka and Allan Ginter-had played together before. The nineteen-man squad was directed by Coach Joe xlahelka who made it clear from the very beginning that only long hours of hard practice would mold the inexperienced players into a well-balanced team.

With Joseph Plepel leading the vvay, the Morton golf team stroked itself into a tie for third place in the lllinois Junior College Conference, winning two matches and losing three. Coach Norman A, Ziebell molded Robert Soucek, G 0 L F lrvin Studney, and William lholen around the number one man, plepel, to come up with a good-working combina- tion that faltered momentarily at the beginning of the season but finished strongly. The highlight ofthe year came when the Morton team was nosed out of winning the State Junior College jokirnament by a mere four strokes, being second to o iet. TENNIS ln the tennis circles of the IJCC the racquet-vvielders from Morton Junior College were respected as a team not to be underrated. Under the tutoring of Coach Batson our men upheld the tradition that Morton produces hearty-literally and figuratively-tennis players. With l-lank Kolar holding down the position of number one man and being supported by such stars as Bob Mac- Gill, Carl Goding, Roger Johnston, Bill Albaugh, and Bob Boehme the team stroked its way to a fair season. Though losing to Joliet, 4-'l, in the year's First match, the clay-courters pounced on the Main team for a clean victory, 5-O. Kolar, MacGill, and Goding all took their singles matches, while Kolar and MacGill, and Goding and Johnston teamed to capture the doubles events. An obstacle was met in a strong Wright team which handed our netmen their second defeat, 3-O. ln the State Tournament l-lank Kolar earned a second place in the singles events. PAGE 67 1 9 4 2 BASEBALL As defending baseball champions of the UCC, the Morton junior College Panthers stood out as this yearis team to beat. Despite the loss of all but two members- l.otina and Neader- of last year's championship nine, the team proved its mettle in the early games of the season. - Captain Tom l.otina, the Panthers' star right-handed hurler, was the team's steadying factor l-lis poise and skill on the mound together with the infieldis tight defensive play and the steady hitting of Kanta and Al- baugh gave a successful baseball season. ln the first game of their title defense, the Panthers traunced North Park, 6-Q, with latina sparkling on the pitching mound and l'larry Kanta battering the opposing pitchers. Success continued when both Wright and l'lerzl fell before lVlorton,s rush. The Wrightmen put up a brave struggle but a spirited rally gave the victory, 8-7. l-lerzl succumbed to Bob lNleader's pitching, 6-4. Then came the seasons first hard pill as joliet hanced our team its first defeat, 7-4. ln previous games Morton had established itself as a team that vvas alert and quick to take advantage of an opponents blunders, also a fine defensive team. The Panthers were all of this against joliet, but their opponents made no errors of which to take advantage. -----, Coach Pavlinek, Kanta, Albaugh, Neader, Privoznik, Blizek, Sisco, Dutka, Kochka, Stanislaw, Buckley, l.otina, l-llavin, Spatny.

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The Womenls Athletic Association is a group ol Women joined together with the mutual purpose ol securing recreation, and enjoying a more extensive physical education program. Under the guiding council ol Miss Catherine Callahan and the otticers, who were, Barbara Fanta, president, Vlasta Nlachala vice-president, Elsie I?oesner,secretary,and Dolores vlohnson, treasurer, The W. A. A. carried out its extensive annual program. The sport calendar called for Tuesday night swimming plunges, and evening games against the alumnae, high school, and other schools. The social calendar also contained a very heavy schedule. They had a variety of parties, namely, the Draft Party, Dues Party, and Santas Sling, and ol course, many 'call women nightsi' were had. This year the olticers andimembers ol the W. A. A. collaborated to produce a successful assembly. The W. A. A. gives awards to those who excell in sports, an i'Emblemi'Ior three seasons,and an "MH For Five seasons, OFFICERS Barbara Eanta ..,. President Vlasta Machala . . Vice President Dolores johnson , .

G While they were really building bene- iicial exercises by the varied twirls and turns, the women also found it a pleasure to acquire new dance steps. The modern coed did not stop with the rhythms of the rhumba, conga, waltz, but divulged deeper into the jigs, quadrille, and cotil- lion. While they may not get as much popular use of these iolk dances, the Final result is a better understanding of rhythm, a more erect posture, and a much more gracelul dancer. GOLF Spring rolled around and our golfers lelt their indoor putting lor outdoor driving. Last lall Coach Ziebell taught them one of the most important lessons in goli: the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. VOLLEYBALL wget it upln HSpikelU UGood trylu These and many other cries were shouted from one femme to another during the hair-raising volleyball games in the gym, Beginners were warned against the mighty spikes and never-lailing returns ol some ol the players, TENNIS Spring was hailed with enthusiasm for another reason-the tennis tournament. The girls displayed their ability as racket- eers in this event at Clyde Park. WJ . f SP Our women, following the trend of others the country over, invaded the bowling alleys in greater numbers than ever. Une reason for its popularity was the fact that this activity could be carried on alter leaving school. Bowling seemed to strilce the girls' fancy, and they spared nothing to pile up the ten pins. BOWLING LIMBERING They called this a limbering class, but don't l4id yourself. Due to the use ol muscles not exercised in everyday activities, the re- sults were usually aches and pains. Never- the less, ready and willing, the girls strove lor the extra bend that did the tricl4. Fish- Flops, over-the-rainbow, roclcing-horses, and head exercises were but a few ol the routines, The class demonstrated their exer- cises tor the College Open House to show just how they lcept their girlish Figures. SWIMMING The mermaids ol Nl. C. would be a proper title lor that nocturnal group of coeds, which met every weelc for the ever splashing aquatic sport-swimming. Diving, racing, and practicing all sorts of swimming tech- niques, were all part of the class. Besides the regular day class, there was an addi- tional evening class to accommodate the eager swimming coeds of lvl. C., which certainly proved its popularity among the women in their physical education program. BASEBALL Spring again was the signal for all the sports-minded women to go out on the i'Gobi Deserti' and bat the old 'I4-incher around. The sport taught the rules of lair play and stressed team cooperation. ORTS ,fs . Swing your pardner Coed dancing Keep your eye on the ball.
