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.
Ulfind hearts are more than coronets,
And simple faith than Norman bloodf,

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.

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
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

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.

A WEEK WITH THE COLLEGIAN
I.iIce cIarI4 clouds gathering in a blue sI4y, reporters, editors, sub-editors, and sub-
sub-editors converge on the peaceful Collegian ottice-room Q50-when, as it
always does alter Monday, comes Tuesday. 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.

Copy, which has been deposited on the editors table by writers and reporters, is snatched at
greedily by copy-readers, editors, and everyone else. 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. But, for the editors, each Thursday is only another milestone to be passed, for they know that
for Tuesday, just ahead, new assignments must be made and new problems met. Softly the door of
room Q50 closes behind them . . ,

lVl. Cfs own mcxgozine, the Emblem, ond the
newest of student publicotions is published twice
Since the First edition wos printed, the Emblem
hos grown much in literory volue ond content, if not
in size. At the present time copies of this mogci-
zine ore sent to colleges ollover the United Stotes.
Worlc on this publicotion storts eorly in the
semester when notices ore put up for contributions.
Long before the mogcizine reciches the students, the
editor ond his cissistonts hove to plon the loyout,
color scheme, ond type of cirticles desired. Once
the literory productions ol the students ore sub-
mitted from the vorious rhetoric closses ond indi-
viduols, the stoFl begins the tedious job of reading
the selections ond mciking their choices os to whot
should oppecir in the Fincil edition. To be ci con-
tributor to the Emblem is the height ol literory
cichievementcit M. C.
Eoch yecir Miss M. L. Eolls ond Mr. A. T. Almer
give their time, ettort, ond cooperotion to help
molte this concise boolclet the Fine success it is.
This yeor the themes of the editions were Amer-
ico ond potriotism. Topics were represented in
story, essciy, ond poem. Although the First edition
deolt chiefly with stories ond essciys, ond the
second edition primcirily with poetry, throughout
both there could be found the best etlorts ol the
All contributors hcid their personolities reveoled,
not only through their writings, but by thumbnoil
slcetches which oppeored ot the end ol the boolclet.
The objective of the public Press Stall is to acquaint the public and our parents
and friends with the standards of the school and to bring to them the up-to-date news
ol M. C. Each weelc articles ol interest about the college could be found in the
Cicero Life, Berwyn Lite, Berwyn Beacon, and Cicero News. Bi-monthly meetings
were held in Mr. Popeis ollice, so the reporters could have Hnews previewsn as
well as "news reviewsn. Each statl member had personal contact with the editor ol
his particular paper, and in this way was able to cooperate with him in rendering
satisfactory service to the community and school.
No one had an excuse lor not having the name,
address, or phone number of either NUC students
or teachers, For all these data were to be Found
in the college Directory, This much prized little
orange and blue bool4 was sold for the nominal
sum of Five cents by energetic ,lim lintera alter the
compilers Doris Monnette, Marie Krallta, and

The Mens Club Rooml Therein lie some of our fondest memories
of M. C. Cmen's of courseb. Faces and facts will doubtlessly fade
into uncertainty in the future, but the club room will always be
remembered. Those brilliantly played chess and checlcer games
bring baclc many memories. Nor shall the sound of the blaring
radio or the sight of men sprawled on the furniture be easily for-
gotten. And no one can forget the Christmas Rarty, when dolls
and bows and arrows were in fashion. Yes, we'Il always remember
the cilublroom, a combination library, lounge, ballroom, and recrea-

Qnce again the Mens Club was socially active. The l-lalloween
Dance and Barn Dance were sponsored by the fVlen's Club in addi-
tion to the annual Father and Son Banquet. A number of men
attended the Mother and Daughter Banquet but in the capacity
of waiters. The club also gave a blanket to the most outstanding
athlete and presented pins to the winning intramural sport teams.

A record-brealdng membership in the Saddle Club this year proved that a mosttremendous increase
was apparent. 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. Miss Lambert was the amiable advisor of the Saddle Club
during the entire year.

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.
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. Dorothy Wright and Dorothy Veague,
two of his cracl4erjacl4 high school veterans, toolc
the affirmative of the question, and l:ranl4 Cizel4
paired with Miles Beran, the only man left from
last year's squad, on the negative.
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.

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.

A year of championship play in every sport
was the reward given to Morton junior College
students by Athletic Director George S. Fenci
and the entire coaching staff.
The prime achievement of the year was the
heralding to Morton of an undefeated, untied
football team. With Coach Lagerlof leading
the way, the team gallcped over all opponents
ti earn for Morton the Conference Champion-
Besides supervising the Athletic Department,
Coach Fencl produced a vvell-balanced, fighting
baslcetball team. Smiling Coach Douglas Finlay-
son conditioned the traclc team into one of the
finest in Morton's history. Baseball was under
the guiding hand of Coach Pavlinelc, while
Coach Ziebell advised the golf swingersf and
the tennis team had Coach Batson to demon-
strate the correct form and strolce.
The physical education and intramural pro-
grams vvere so extended that every student had
the opportunity to develop his physical capabil-
ities in some beneficial way.

season, which is quite a feat in any college football league.

lVlorton's baslcetball season ol1941-1949 is novv considered sport history-sport history of which vve all are
proud. 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.
Against all other opposition the Panthers had registered impressive scores, defeating lvlaine tvvice, 55-33
and 42-25, La Grange, their nearest rival, was rudely treated to a sound 62-36 trouncing, and at Morton,

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.

Part ot the education oi a college
woman ot today is the knowledge of how
to keep a physically lit body prepared lor

mental idea ol the varied schedule
ol dancing classes otlered at lVl. 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,

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,
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.
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.
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

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.
Spring again was the signal for all the
sports-minded women to go out on the
