S the years have passed, changes have been nunllferous.
Qnly the building that houses the students oi OVIOF1
Junior College remains the same. It has aged, too, with the
. . ' M t n.
Former students, but is still the symbol of all that is Or O
What il this building were to SDeUl4Oltl1O5etlllnQS which
it has housed for lo, these many YGOV
stored up against those who have destroYed H5 beauty by
various acts ol vandalism, the loud laughter thot lWCl'5 Shfllsefi
its walls,and the tears that have shattered its drec1mS?Wl1Gf
would be said ol the students who have through the YQOVS
entered its doors-gateways to advancement ol learning?
What could be repeated oi the conversations between
those who chattered happily as they rushed to the next class,
discussed the latest class incident, or argued about the
newest political controversy? Who knows what successes
and failures have been observed through the eyes ol this
unrevealing house ol knowledge?
Memoriesslrom the past, the thrill of a sports champion-
s-the grudges it has
ship, the excitement and elegance ol the annual proms, the
life and gaieties ol the operettas and plays through which
student talent has been aided and developed, reminiscences
of people in the passing parade of student lile-the
pioneers ol the year book, newspaper, directory, and other
student publications would be just a lew ol its memories.
The old landmark will vividly remember how the old
college traditions commenced, how the college managed
through the First years ol development, and how outstanding
the students ol each class were in their numerous Fields of
sports, journalism, government, club activities, and scholar-
ship. The inside story regarding friendships, companionships,
loves, hates, petty jealousies, worries, fears, laughter,and
tears would be revealed it this building were to speak.
Administration and faculty would be described as they
planned and worked to aid various activities: the presidents,
ldeans, social. committees, club advisors, and teachers who
OVG UVQed increased endeavor from the student bodies.
Yes, the personal secrets ol Morton junior College have
been Stored in G building that has meant home to thousands
ol students and alumni through the years never to be
revealed by this ediFice,yet somehow lelt by everyone who
has made his WCW down its narrow corridors.

lt was September of 1924 when Sterling Morton First
opened its doors to students desiring worl4 in the first two
years of college. That year only 79 freshmen students en-
rolled in the offered courses, but it marlced a beginning, a
beginning of bigger and better things lor Morton Junior
It was a great job, this starting a new school, lor who could
tell what the future would bring? With one strolce of the clocl4
immense success or dismal lailure might be the result. But there
were men to meet the responsibility. l-larry Victor Church,
MJCS First president furnished the inspiration and planning
needed to put such a plan into ellect. l"lis untiring el'iorts united
with the determination of faculty and students alilce furnished
the sparl4 lor the Fire that was to burn brightly lor many years
Even Mr. Church could not undertalce such a job alone and
so it was that a man was appointed dean ol the college whose
name has become synonymous with that of Morton ,junior College. That man was Walter Bishop Spel-
man. Ugpeln, as he was fondly tabbed by students and fellow laculty members, was all that could be
hoped For in a leader ol a new endeavor. All the foresight and ambition ol youth were his as he tool4
over at the helm of a newly formed institution of learning. Those same qualities existed until the day
of his death in 1941. ln his seventeen years as dean, "Spel" saw times ol trouble, wealth, prosperity,
and depression but always forged ahead.
When Mr. Spelman toolc over his job in this newly organized junior college, he had one year in
which to prove to the state authorities that Morton vlunior College should be accepted amonglthe
ranl4s of accredited junior colleges in lllinois. It was a tremendous job, it meant building from nothing
into something great and worthwhile in community life, but the right man had been chosen.

l'WiQUif1Q experiment, never stale and monotonous, but rich
and exciting. l-lis enthusiasm never died, from the socials he
attended where he danced with the female students to the
COHGQG ClOSS he joined as a student among many. Dignity and
Charm he lleelfend respect he gained. l-le was determined tO

For the students regardless of the cost to him.
Undef HSDel's" direction the student council was organiz-
ed and from that time has existed as a hard-worlcing student
governing l9OClY- l-lis activities did not end here, however, for
he felt the QVSCH responsibility upon the State Association of
JUn'e'C9ll'-9995 and becamea hard-worlcing member and ohiicer

of the community. The Spelman memorial library stands now as a tribute in his honor, but no more
so than the school which is a living record of his success.
To take his place was a big job-one that not anyone could fill. September of 'l94l saw Mr. Walter
S. Pope assume that position. It was a tremendous task-but the results were worth the effort. l'le met
the situation and continued directing the schoolis progress.l'he years saw a new war loom on the horizon
MJCS men leave to go into their country's service, and the enrollment drop considerably. But Mr.
Pope saw it through until vets returned to add a new note of authority to college life. l-le saw too,
in l947, a willing public go to work under the leadership and persuasion of college students to vote
for a referendum which enabled Morton Junior College to remain in existence because of an addi-
tional tax. Yes, conditions changed during those few years and the man guiding the destinies of
Morton students changed to fit the prevailing situation. Qur second dean too was a great man in
ln the spring of 1948 when Mr. Pope announced that he was leaving his post because of illness,
President W. P. MacLean appointed Dr. Robert M. l-lale as his successor. Dr. l-lale in taking up this
task encountered many difficulties. Without his right hand assistant, Miss Catherine Bowes, during
the summer, he and his staff had additional problems. But with patient effort and untiring service the
way has beenpaved by our third Dean of Men of Morton Junior College to a bright and rosy future.
Saturday classes are now a thing of the past, and who can object? The supper hour has again been
added for those with late classes. But in general college life on the MJC campus hums as usual.
Before this page is concluded other names must be mentioned, for Miss Grace Walker could not
be left out in the story of the history and progress of Morton
Junior College. Miss Walker taught a class in the first year of
the junior college, it was the following year that she assumed
the position of Dean of Women which she has quietly and
capably maintained to the present. l-ler good natured coun-
seling and helpful advice have made her beloved by all who
have been her students. Also head of the English department
in the high school and college, Miss Walker has helped write
the English texts for the four years of high school. For many
years, her English literature classes have been a source of
inspiration and encouragement to many men and women of
Another word must be added of a man who has done much
to lead MJC in its recent endeavors-our president, W. P.
MacLean. It was his foresight and perseverance which led
to the successful completion of a task that meant a continuance , . - . .
of Mjf:-the reforendum of l9-47. Gratitude to him for his
work on this project from the students now taking advantage 1
of its opportunities is overwhelming. l-lis advice and counsel are sought by our junior college students
in times of need, and he gives it willingly.
The men who have acted as vice-presidents, who have served on our school boards, in fact everyone
who has been a part of Mslc for the past twenty-five years, from the janitors who worked into the
night to keep our rooms in order, to the busy executives whose endless planning and initiative have
made possible what we have at our fingertips today cannot be omitted. Their work has made Morton
Junior College a school of which all her students may be exceedingly proud.
Through the years Morton Junior College has risen from a mere seedling into full bloom, the 'future
looks bright on the distant horizon.

As one loolcs 'iBacl4 Through the Yearsl' of the history ol Morton junior College, one sees most
clearly the smiling, determined face of the founder, Mr. l-larry Victor Church. l-lis Foresight and valiant

otherwise have been stifled and have also brought higher culture to a community that was clearly

The student council vvas iirst organized by Mr.
Spelman as a mediating body between laculty
and students. lt was his desire that this group be
used as a representative body lor student
opinions, and to solve problems involvingstu-
dents that arose in regard to discipline and at-
tendance. From that time until novv such a group
has existed, elected by the students to serve
them as leaders. Some years there has been little
action from the council, but as conditions return
to normal, the student council too is beginning to
hold again its important position in college liie
at Morton Junior College.
Elected by the students to iorm a governing
body, the student council has this year regained
prestige as a college organization. Among
their duties ior the year were the supervising ol
distribution of the budget, organizing the social
calendar with the social committee, and direct-
ing class and campus leader elections. A project
attempted by the second semester group vvas a
hand bool4 ior the college. First semester otlicers
were president, l-lelen Vaughn, vice-president,
Francis Fitzmaurice, secretary, Julia Gold-
schmidt. Second semester president was Bob
l-libben and secretary, Pat Svvade.

closer and closer to completion.

Through the years MJC has talcen
pride in an excellent nevvspaper. The
Collegian was established and main-
tained not only to publish names and
events that may pass into the oblivion that
is history but to bring to the student a
miniature section ol life. Though the staFl
may exert strong influence on the building
and moulding ol school spirit through the
Collegian, the Collegian certainly is no
less important in its influence upon the
staff members. To get the paper out on
Friday has not been the sole aim as some
thinlq. Good vvriting has always been a
goal for which everyone strives.

Along with the lVlen's Club and NUC itsell, the Womenls Club is also celebrating its twenty-Filth
birthday this year. Since the organization ol the school there has always been a place ol rendezvous
lor the women. Under the guidance ol Miss Walker, the club has undergone many redecorations
through the years. lt has seen a series ol new radios, drapes, lurniture, and painting jobs accomplished
which have been thought by each group to have been the best. Qt course, this year we believed ours
to be the best-. Up until the war hit the college all the women were divided into eight tribes. When
the freshmen met in the First hygiene class ol the new semester, they were divided into the tribes by a
chance drawing ol numbers. No group was superior or inferior to the others and a spirit ol competition
ran high. Each tribe was headed by its ollicers. The club itsell was governed by its presiding otlicers,
who in turn looked to Miss Walker lor advice. All in all the Women's Club can well be proud ol! its
past record. A, 'S , , ,,,c. "" W

Throughout the vveel4 beginning November 'lst, evidence ol Homecoming could be seen in every
nool4 and cranny ol NUC. First, but not least, were the traditional orange and blue campus decorations.

Finally the great day arrived, and vve lound ourselves bundled in blanlcets, sitting on those Oh! so
hard bleachers at the game. Between yells and cheers, We consumed the very welcome hot dogs,
candy bars, and potato chips sold by members of the Pantherls Roar.
During hall time, the W.A.A. Women, assisted by Diclt Dleslc as cheerleader, put on a game ol their

The game, played in a sea ol mud, ended in a 7-6 victory lor our Morgan l3arl4 opponents.

Morton,s first baseball team entered NUCC in 1925. UAcef' Elliott tutored the squad in the early
years, but was unable to produce a champion team with his embryonic nine.
ln 1928, man experienced team supporting him, mentor George Fencl toolc over and coached
the Panthers to their first championship. The Grange-and-Blue repeated in '34, when they again
turned in a superb performance. Then in 1936, l.. I-I. Batson steered his team to its third league-leading
The champs again proved their might in '41, emerging on top of the race, and in '44 the Panthers
won their latest championshp. 1
1945 found Morton without a sauad. Baseball returned in 1946, and came to a thrilling but dis-
appointing climax last year.
After passing over Wright and LaGrange by close margins, the Panther nine, coached by Ed Wojie-
chowsl4i, took an B-3 beating by Thornton. They easily toolc North Parlc twice, then Wilson and Morgan
Parlc, and swamped St. Bede in a non-conference clash 15-5. Trying to malce it six straight, the M,lGers
toolc on LaGrange again, but the West-Suburbaners emerged on the high side of a 5-1 score.
The "Wojiemen" battled Wright next, and largely through the spectacular hurling of Pat Saviano,
who fanned Q1 Wright batsmen, won 6-4 as the game went into extra innings. Bob Drefs's double in
the eleventh stanza secured the game. The Grange-and-Blue dropped Thornton 12-4 under the
guidance of l-larry l'loldych's pitching and with the help of four straight hits off Leo "l.ip', Pauga's bat.
With this conquest, the Panther nine found itself in the conference lead, with but one more win needed
to clinch the tit .
Coming up a inst Wilson for the second time, the "Wojie-ites" fought nip-and-tuclc with the Chi-
cagoans for nine innings. As the game lengthened, the Grange-and-Blue weren't able to l4eep up the
pace and tasted a 9-8 defeat, allowing the title to slip to slolietx
With such able veterans as Ed Marelr, Bob Drefs, Gene Ghervinko, and Erv Klodner forming the
nucleus of the '49 nine, Coach "Wojie" has a firm right to visualize the UCC title in the hands of the
Mortonites this year.

Track has been a major sport at NUC
since 19525. Without the facilities of an
indoor or outdoor tracl4, the thinclads have
always had to practice in our halls during
the cold months and on the athletic field
when more favorable weather appeared
in the spring. The l-larriers won their
first conference championship in 19352, and
the latest repetition of the deed was ac-
complished in 1945.
Coach George l.agerlof was the first of
the mentors of the modern athletic era.
Then Hlduclcn Wright assumed command
until 1936 when Doug Finlayson tool4 the
reins to bring to this school the "golden
This season Coach Finlayson found
himself faced with an old problem, mold-
' 781 'l
ing a formidable squad from a small group
of inexperienced runners. Qnly four mem-
bers of last yearfs craclc squad returned to
the cinder wars, Ed jurzyna, Don Piha,
Bob Drslca, and Jim Kratovil. ln the indoor
meets this year the new men have shown
rapid signs of meshing into a well co-
ordinated and balanced sauad. Showing
sparl4s of brilliance were Ed Cervony in
the quarter and half-mile, lVlarty Serbiclc
in the dashes, Derr Andrlilc in the hurdles,
and Brian Voth in the pole vault.
The l-larriers had scheduled meets with
such tracl4 powers as the University of
Chicago, North Central, Elmhurst, Loyola,
Depaul, lllinois Tech, and Concordia.
Against this stiff competition the thinclads
have more than held their own.

MvlCs first organized soccer team made its field debut in 1931. Starting off with a bang, the Panthers
came through with a 4-Won, 1-lost season, their single mar caused by the University of lllinois.
193Q saw a repeat performance, the soccermen winning four times and losing again to Illinois. Qne
of the wins, however, was from undefeated lllinois.
Soccer was dropped from the schedule in 1933, but reappeared in '34 when the booters lost two
tilts to lllinois and Won none. No team was organized again until 1938, when five games were played
Since 1939, the team had its ups and downs, being disorganized during the war years and returning

one, some of the games being played against Big Nine competition.
The 1948 soccermen just missed topping that record, and being the first Mjc booting team t ve

Due to the lact that the turn-out lor the '49 swimming team was too meagre to permit the lormation ol
a regular squad, M,lC was not represented this year in conference swimming meets. A lew fellows
however, notably Ray Brown, Bob Morava, and Vic Novander, practiced at the water sport, readying
lor the state meet. Practice was held at the Qlympic Swimming Pool while the Morton pool was out ol
commission lor repairs lor a lew months.
Although several meets were scheduled, Coach C. l.. Bond was Forced to cancel them, since it was
necessary to have a lull team ol eight to ten members in order to compete, and repeated requests did
not arouse enough swimmers.
The lllinois Junior College State Swimming Meet was held on March 4. Sponsored by Morgan
Park slC, it was held at the Wilson junior College swimming pool.
