The NUC campus was a little empty this
year, those old familiar laces weren't there.
The boys who sat next to you in class or played
outfield on the team last year, the boys who
played so hard yesterday to uphold the honor
of MJC, are Fighting today For a greater cause.
Their loclcers stand empty novv, their places in
the class-rooms and libraries have been va-
They have left the campus ol Morton for
the battle-Fields of the vvorld. Yet they have
not become completely severed from our little
collegei for just as MJC has a place in their
hearts, they have a warm place in hers. They
have helped to build her glory and in turn
she has guided them. She has sent them
Forth-the men ol NUC, the leaders of today.

"lf You Seek His .Monument Look About You"
HARRY VICTOR CHURCH, pioneer educator of the Morton com,-
IIHLIIIZQV, was the founder and first president of Morton. Junior
College. His monument is an erlucational institution, u peoples'
college, unique in the foct that it was the first two-yeur college in
the world ogering free tuition and free tcmtbooks. Since its incep-
tion in 1924 the college has graduated more than two thousand
students. nmny of whom have beneflefl from the influence of the
sohool,s founder, "'l'l1e Creut SCll00lIfll1SfGl',,.
Realizing the effect on the morale of the
students and the stress of technical instruction
during war-time, the Administration and IacuIty
have striven well to prepare us as students
for our positions in the post-war worId as
well as for jobs that will bring victory to our
nation and our allies sooner. They have met
their schedule and are aptIy responsible for
the Fine showing that IVINICS students have
made in the service and otherwise.
Many of our men and women have left
us at the call of their country. They still
belong to us, so our numbers are not small,
neither are our courage and determina-
tion, Qur actual enrollment is twice what
it was in the First year of Morton Junior
College, and we are twice as good.
Those of us who remain in the college
must accept the challenge to "Carry her
standard high" and keep it waving lor
the many thousands who are to come.

Morton Junior College is Finishing its twentieth year full ol courage, hope and determination
lor the Future. Bled of her students, impoverished by lack ol funds to carry on her many extra-curric-
ulum activities, she takes the lead among the remaining six public junior colleges ol Illinois outside
Chicago. Such is the Spirit of 1944 when nearly a thousand sons of NUC are Fighting freedoms
enemy on foreign soil, in the air, and on the seas.
WALTER S. POPE
Dean ol Men
All who attend college in the midst of war have a privilege and a responsibility that go hand
in hand. Let no one lear that members ol the Class ol T944 at Morton are unaware ol this, have
misread their destiny. I-lours ol serious thought and planning, months ol study have prepared them
to play their part with patriotic devotion, with intelligence, with fortitude. They move on now to
take up new stations in the great forward march of America.
J. GRACE WALKER
Dean of Women
Alter sixteen years at NUC I have gained considerable knowledge ol student life on our campus.
But the past few months in the college ollice have opened new viewpoints and made me all the
more appreciative ol the eFIorts ol our instructors and students. I am grateful lor the new experience
and hope that all goes well in the future.

l-lers was the tender hand that sowed and encouraged the seeds of
Nature. l-lers was the smile and the voice that taught the wisdom and
understanding of the little things in life that enrichen it. And in a world
dimmed by the chaos and destitute of war, hers was the service that brought
hope and light and faith.
MJC and the world have lost a botanist, Nature has claimed its own.

marks the graduation of the First class to enter the portals ol our college since the outbreak of World
Life on the campus was indeed different these past two years. Nevertheless, many Fine friend-

A small confident group of men and vvomen entered the halls of Morton junior College in the
fall prepared to meet the obstacles which might arise during their stay here. Throughout the entire
year the freshman class has proven its worth by participating in activities as members of the various
clubs, publications, and athletic squads, This year's freshmen class has proven, indeed, that it's
not the quantity but the quality that counts.

Although the enrollment at NUC was very
lovv this year, clubs and activities were still
maintained at the traditional standard. With
the First semester came the Iall prom, the Mother-
Daughter banquet, Big Sister tea, I-Iallovve'en
party, and the Christmas party.
The second semester brought elections for
the cabinets, council, campus leaders, and
lVl,lC's typical guy and gal. There were sev-
eral parties including the St. Pats party, and
the kiddy party. The year ended with the
college open-house, Class Night, and grad-
We all waited a long time For this night, and it was worth it. The men in their tuxedos . . .
the women draped in all their Fineries . . . beautiful corsages . . . perfumery . . . swaying
music . . . soft lights. Remember how the decoration committee felt so proud when we con-
gratulated theml Quite o few service men and alumni.
Then there were the small chats during intermission . . . and the Grand March . . . and
the school song . . . more dancing to the slow music . . . ah, what memories . . , won-
Merriment was dominant on the campus on
many a Friday night . . . where the socials
were held this year.
Freshman orientation came about at the
Frosh-mixer . . . something dirierent in en-
tertainment originated at this First social. The
merry-goers congregated in the Womens Club-
room where student talent performed.
ln Qctober there was ci combination l-lal-
lovve'en and 3aclcvvard dance. Cornstallcs and
pumpkins decorated the 'cat ',.. a vast arra 11
of costumes . . . Cider and donuts were on
- At Christmas the dance was held in the
lcal' too. The highlight of this atlair was the
game in which Dean Pope participated.
The St. Pats Fling proved to be one of the
best socials. Garbed in green all ol the
G'Connor's, Murphy's, Nolan's, and alias O'
Koselcs gathered around the piano to let out
with some lrish hymns and jigs.
Baby Dumplings, little l3auly's and the Patsy
girls brought their yo-yo's and Raggedy Anns
to the annual KIDS' Party on the campus in
THE VICTORY SONG
l-lere we are with hearts of courage,
singing Morton's lame,
When we cheer her on the Field,
she wins in every game.
Backing Morton's honor we will
crush the enemy.
Lead us, Morton, on to battle and
Fight on, lor Morton loyal and true,
Carry her standard high,
Proud of her colors orange and blue,
l-larlcen to our battle cry-Rah! Rah! Rahl
Dear Alma Mater we sing of thy praise
True sons and daughters we.
Lead us, We pray thee through all our days,
Morton, hail to thee.
There vvasn't much money to sprinlde around
this year, therefore, we couldn't hire outside
entertainmentlor assemblies. Did that stop us?
N0l Pat Gaynor and Don Nilio were quick
on the draw and Leonard Fay joined in-so
did Vivien Bell and Edna Vaculilc Our as-
semblies were full of music and laughs. That's
what we wanted-thats what we got.
Qctober brought the annual Mother-Daughter
banquet with its main attraction, namely food,
in the student cafeteria, and entertainment
later in the Little Theatre.
One of the highlights of the evening was
the serenade by the men who so graciously
consented to serve as Waiters. Everyone was
very much surprised to Find out that some ol
them can really sing too.
Turn about is usually fair play, and the women
would have gladly served at the Father-Son
banquet if there had been one. l"lovvever,
since many of the men are now in service and
many fathers of the remaining men vvorlc nights,
it was impossible in that respect to hold a
banquet with so Few men.
Due to the shorter class hours this year, the
number of assemblies had to be cut down
because of their interference with a few classes.
l-lowever, as large a number of assemblies as
possible did talce place.
Everyone remembers the '4Welcome to the
Freshmen" assembly where we did our best
to malce them feel at home . . . and then
the introduction of the newly elected otticers
after the elections were over and done with
. . . the Giovanni Sperandeo entertainment
sure was a 'fast' one . . . while Miss
VVallcer's excellent "movies and poetry" hit
the spot for relaxation
Shortly after the second semester began came
the Vivace Clubs musical assembly which was
so good that the students didn't want to leave
. . . and this led to an Assembly Committee
headed by co-chairmen Capoun and Nilio
who brought about the lcind of assemblies the
students wanted-music, dancing, singing, and
plenty of laughs, A
There were a lot of outside activities this
year. The hay-ride party, with a barn dance
included-boyl was that lunl . . . and re-
member that swimming party on a Sunday after-
noon. Qccasionally a small group went horse-
back riding. And then there were the many
parties where everybody was welcome to
come i and how they camel The bowl-
ing tournament, Women vs. Men, was a riot.
Yep, no matter what we did, just as long as
we did it together, we enjoyed ourselves.

The Womens Club again started a new
school year otf right with the Big Sister Tea
in Qctober and in November the Mother-
Daughter Banquet. The shortage of men didn't
stop them either, For the women sponsored the
annual Christmas dance in December.
lnstead of the childrens Christmas party held
in previous years, the women voted in favor
of taking Christmas packages to l-lines Hospital
for wounded veterans. The remark oi one
veteran to the etfect that he had never seen
prettier Santa Clauses was reward enough for
Right around this time the Womens Club
was victorious in the winning of "Marty" in
the annual Christmas seal contest between
the lVlen's Club and the Women's Club.
With the election of a new president, a
Few of the more industrious women started
spring cleaning early in February when they
scrubbed and gave a complete new coat of
paint to the club room. OF course this took
quite a bit of elbow grease, but the women
who started the job just kept plugging away
until it was Finished.
Even though school hasn't been the same as
in previous years, and the women have had to
provide for their own good times, the results
show that all effort was worthwhile,
Though faced with the shortage of those
vital complements to any co-educational college
lite, MEN, the clan that did exist managed to
band together into some semblance ot a Men's
Club. The most unusual social event of the
year was the Club's l'lallovve,en Masquerade-
Mixer-Baclcward Dance. Although there was
a whole community ot l.i'l Abners and Daisy
Maes present, others came costumed as hula
dancers, harum haunts, somnambulists, piclcanin-
nies, and colonial lcids. Cider Csvveet, of
coursej flowed freely, and plenty ol doughnuts
were on hand.
The Men's Club dance was also an excuse
for the purchase of a staclt of new phonograph
records, the club's purchasing agents came home
with bargains, boresome boogie, blue ballads,
and boisterous bass, These records bore the
brunt of daily revolution on the good old RCA
Victor. Other than this entertainment, the MEN
consoled themselves with chess-and-checlcer
games, bull sessions, and even studying! We
feel it only Fitting to mention the fact that
many of the men did study, especially those
who wanted to get a good number of hours
in before leaving For the service.

Though the war natura'IIy curbed many ath-
Ietic activities in the year 'I943-44, IVUCS men
and women didmanage to stay busy. Backed
by a capable coaching staff, Morton men par-
ticipated in intramural football, took Fourth in
the Junior College conference in basketball,
sponsored an intramuraI cage tourney, and had
track and basebaII teams. The women were
right behind with an inter-coIIegiate cage
scheduIe and an extensive intramural program.

NUC put on a three-team intra-

Though handicapped by laclc of facilities
and by laclc of men, MJC was able to put
a traclc team out on the field. Most of the
time during the season the squad numbered
around 'IQ men. The big .day for the cinder-
men came on May QO, when they tangled
with other league schools at Wilson to win
the conference track meet.
Vitt, Joe Riley, John Polc, and
Coach Paul Pavlinek handled the NUC base-
ball squad in 1944. The Northern lllinois
College Conference was functioning and four
teams were expected to compete in the league
race. The squad numbered nearly 18 men,
with the pitching problem the toughest hurdle
for Coach Pavlinelc to surmount. Yet, the
team won the conference title.

Proudly displaying a bright orange letter
Cjust like the lellowsl these NUC women have
been rewarded for three semesters of iaith-
lully iulhlling Five gym periods a Weelc in ac-
cordance with WAA rules.
New to the women of NUC was speedball,
a combination of football, basketball, and
soccer. After a month or so of practice in
the fundamentals last Fall, four teams were or-
ganized and a tournament was held. Soon
such interest was aroused in the game that
each of the four teams had its own cheering
section, the fellows of the colle e comprising
the major part of the group as tiey came out
to razz the girls and abate their curiosity about
this new game of speedball.
This year a group of girls versed in basket-
ball technique formed a team to meet all comers.
After the new mid-term began the women
played against American College here at
Morton and although soundly beaten, they
learned a valuable lesson in speed which they
used to almost victorious advantage against
the women's team from North Park several
weeks later. After each of these basketball
encounters, refreshments were served in the
women's clubroom and friendly social contacts
with the women of our neighboring junior col-
leges were made. This year's basketball sea-
son was one of the most beneficial as far as
enjoyment and technical knowledge was con-
cerned, The girls came into their own in the
sporting field which has heretofore been dom-
inated by the men.
Llntil this year, tennis was merely an elective
for the women in physical education classes.
Following a plan likened to that of basketball
and baseball, a tennis team was formed and
early morning practices on the Clyde Park courts
became a daily feature.

With the merest hint of spring in the air,
the softballs and bats were taken out of storage
and the athletic field became the scene of
diamond activities. After the success of inter-
collegiate basketball for our women, an NUC
women's softball team was organized to play
against the other junior colleges.
The unsung heroines of MNICS campus are
those women who brave straggling damp loclcs
and reddened eyes once a weelc to swim
lengths, practice diving, and develop correct
form in swimming strokes. After swimming
lengths, which eventually add up to five miles,
the deserving girls are awarded pins of merit.
Many of the girls perform admirably offering
records of 105 and 66 consecutive lengths as

Bending, stretching, running, and jumping
were all the order of the day when the power-

Grunts and groans resounded throughout the
gym as the gals painstakingly bent from the
waist in an attempt to reach that 'l5Oth count.
Not to be undaunted by the fellows, these
women have performed pushups in addition to
their regular schedule of "mule kicks", Hover-
