We honor him on the Golden Anniversary of his CIARLA. HARRY A. YETTER, 93 ' eaica tion Mr. Y etter 1892 THE STORY OF THE Forty-nine years of CIARLA work have preceded the present edition of the annual publication of Muhlenberg Col- lege. These forty-nine years have seen the gradual evolution of the CIARLA from the “Gay Nineties” influence to that of the modern day. The 1942, or Golden Anniversary, CIARLA is the climax of this period and answers as much as pos- sible the modern demand. The first CIARLA, created by the im- aginative minds of Harry Tetter and Wil- liam Rick, members of the class of 1893, was so named because, as stated in its Preface, the word was “suggestive of the matter which meets the reader throughout the entire volume.” Secondly, Mr. Yetter, the first CIARLA editor, preferred this title because its pronunciation “possessed certain euphonious qualities.” CIARLA comes from the Italian word meaning to talk idly or to chatter. Since the first edi- tion of Muhlenberg’s yearbook contains little of anything but written matter, the name as originally applied was a well- chosen one. However, with the demand of the modern yearbook-indulgent for pictures and more pictures, the name is hardly a true representation of what the book now contains. Tradition must tri- umph over the demon, fact, nevertheless, and for that reason CIARLA does it re- main. Appropriately enough, the color scheme of the 1893 CIARLA was a Cardinal-and- Gray combination with golden lettering. The book, (i i ' xl yg " in size, was thereby the smallest yet produced. Prominent fea- tures in this initial issue were histories on such things as the College, the four classes — ' 92, ' 93, ' 94, and ' 95 — present in Col- lege at the time, and fraternities — Phi Gamma Delta and Alpha Tau Omega — with various literary societies. A detailed report on the Commencement Exercises held in June of 1891 was also included. Art work, some reproductions of which appear in other sections of the 1942 CIARLA, was undertaken by Mr. Tetter’s worthy friend, Mr. Rick, whose humorous sketches used as section dividers are num- erous throughout the ’93 book. Hie only FROM 1893 TILL 1942 actual photographic work which appears in the first volume of fifty are pictures of the Rev. Theodore Lorenzo Seip, then President of the College; the Rev. Ben- jamin Sadtler, second President; the Rev. Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, first president; and the board of CIARLA edi- tors for that issue. From 1893-1912 little change in the make-up of the CIARLA can be noticed. The size of the book during that time was never much smaller or larger than 7p2X 9H, although between 1906 and 1912 the tendency was for books horizontally long. Little by little between 1913 and 1927 the book thickened until it reached a 7 $4x1 Oj 6 width and length, which measurements re- mained until 1936. By that year the book had really become too thick for its size and the editors jumped the figures to the approximate 9x12 which it is today. It is from 1936, then, that the CIARLA has developed most. In 1937, although the length and width diminished along with depth to the measurements of the early ’20’s, a history of Muhlenberg College was presented and the book showed defi- nite tendencies to streamlining which has appeared in those which have followed it. 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941— all these edi- tions have been 9x12 in size and they too have gradually become thicker. The present staff believes that it has brought the CIARLA to a level on a par with that of other editions hut it also recognizes that greater things should come from the CIARLA within a short time. Already has national recognition been gained and during this period of greatest CTARLi development. Emmanuel Hoov- er’s 1939 CIARLA brought the College a good measure of fame when it received All-American honors. The 1940 hook, edited by Wilson Touhsaent, did not quite gain that high rating but received the next in line by taking First Class honors. John Ammarell’s 1941 version made a come- back and once again were All-American honors the property of Muhlenberg’s year- book. evi nnwei cl min h tea tion SSociation eticS ctivitiei FIFTIETH YEAR OF em EGNER-HARTZELL MEMORIAL CHAPEL . . . erected in 1931 . . . our college chapel has been a con- stant source of inspiration to those who have passed between its ever-welcoming doors. w rn i i w » " i y i o » 1 .

Page Twenty-six MUHLENBERG COLLEGE ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT April 1, 1941 TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1942 : As you prepare the record of your Class for inclusion in a long line of an- nuals which portray in intimate detail the busy life we lead here on this campus, you are facing a set of conditions that have no parallel in the history of any other Muhlenberg class. Before this letter of mine appears in print perhaps all of us will be participants in another of those undeclared wars which seem to be civilization ' s way of carrying on its crazy progress. I hope that in some way, somehow, a kind Providence will intervene to in- terrupt this, as eventually it must. For 1942, in addition to its significance to you as a date for beginning your actual careers, has been set apart for seme time as a period of celebration , --a year when all of us could commemorate the construc- tive work of a family for which this College of ours was named. The Muhlenbergs , as pioneers, were faced with conditions which were just as serious and just as portentous as those which confront you today. They were equipped by heritage, by training, and by character to surmount all the strange difficulties which they encountered. Because the College named to henor them and to perpetuate their ideals is engaged chiefly in giving to its students a training designed to build leaders who can approximate the record of those early Muhlen- bergs, it is only fitting that we, as an institution, should join actively in a celebration in their honor. This we are now planning to do. The year 1942, which already means so much to you, was selected because just two hundred years ago the first of the family, Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, landed in America to start his work. There is no wish I could formulate in your behalf more complimentary than that one of you, as his career unfolds, would approximate the distinguished record of this man. He was staunch in his faith, he was courageous in thought and deed, he was forward looking in his concept of the future of this country, he was inca- pable of discouragement, and he handed down to his sons and to his associates an indomitable spirit that enabled them to follow his example in overcoming obstacles and accomplishing results. That is a challenge to every son of Muhlenberg, but particularlv in the case of those to whom the numbers 1942 already carry consid- erable significance. So my wish is that in this particular Class will emerge not only one but a group who will, in every sense, carry on this distinguished Muhlenberg tradition.

A significant indication of fifty years of growth and development is the fact that this year thirteen new faces are seen among the faculty and administration. In these days of Muhlenberg’s fifth president, Dr. Levering Tyson, and the slogan he originated, “The Greater Muhlenberg,” it seems a far cry to the days of her third leader, Dr. Theodore Lorenzo Seip and his faculty of twelve men, including himself. This year the Muhlenberg faculty numbers thirty-nine, with an admin- istrative staff of twenty-six serving the col- lege. Each year presents a Muhlenberg “greater” than the preceding year. Three of the new men are recent gradu- ates of the College, and, in two cases, de- partments were enlarged in creating their positions. Mr. Albert D. Simpson, ’40, was engaged for a newly-created post, that of Teaching Fellow in Mathematics, and Mr. Walter L. Reinhart, ’38, was made an assist- ant in the chemistry department, an appoint- ment made necessary by increased enrollment in the chemistry courses. Mr. Clifford C. Klick, ' 39, is the new Teaching Fellow in Physics. Other new instructors are Mr. Donald E. Shay, biology; Air. Robert McClurkin, economics; Air. William C. Wilbur, Jr., his- tory; Mr. Roy E. Smeltzer, and Mr. Donald G. Carpenter, business. Personalities not seen before in the ad- ministrative offices include Mr. Edmund S. Page Thirty Keiter, business manager, and his secretary, Miss Anne DeLong; Mr. John S. Davidson, librarian; Mr. Anthony Jagnesak, director of the Band; and Mrs. Meta Ricker, secre- tary to the president. The idea of setting aside West Hall, the freshman dormitory, as a home for fresh- men alone, to aid in training them for col- lege life, was advocated by Freshman Dean Harry A. Benfer when the College took over the building. It began to bear fruit this year, when commendation of the results of the first year of its operation was received from many quarters. Through the office of the Director of Pub- lic Relations, the surrounding communities and those of the alumni and students are kept in constant touch with happenings on the campus. The office of the Alumni Secretary is per- forming an invaluable service, not only to the College in keeping all the alumni in as close contact as possible to it and its interests, but also to the alumni themselves through the Alumni Magazine, which is also affiliated with the Publicity Office. The Placement Bureau, which places undergraduates in part- time jobs, and secures graduates permanent employment, is also under the direction of the Alumni Secretary, as is the administra- tion of National Youth Administration aid on the campus. Hie constantly-increasing facilities and scope of the Athletic Department have long since brought Muhlenberg sports up to a par with many of our sister institutions, and the energetic administration in this office is ever eager to push still further ahead. This, then, is a glimpse of the administra- tion, always on the alert for a chance to bet- ter the College, and already with a head start into the next fifty years of achievement and improvement to be mirrored in the pages of the next fifty issues of the CIARLA.

Since then, under similar sets of laws, the asso- ciation of the four classes has been more unified and has enabled an in- crease in student functions year by year. In recent times this associat- tion lias been intensified still more under the constitution revised in 1939. -CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION •». T’. " " r ' c tribute to a junior with an all-A record.

Leiine Page Forty-four a65 o TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1941 : Tlie Class of 1941 has almost become an actuality in the alumni records. The time is fast approaching when we shall be faced with the necessity of saying our final fare- wells, of experiencing our last leave-takings. Through the years of our experience with Muhlenberg and with Muhlenberg men we have become infinitely wiser and more ma- ture. We have seen others before us depart from these hallowed halls leaving behind them enviable marks and gleaming records. We have seen the men of our class make their contributions to Muhlenberg annals, tradition, and history. Our short stay has been the beginning of the renaissance of our college; she has made constant steps forward and has seen mani- fold improvements. Through our experiences here we have been filled with a desire to aid her in her onward and upward surge. We take this feeling with us and leave behind to those who remain the task of helping her inwardly. To those who stay behind, to linger a short while longer in her comforting and protecting shadows, we leave the charge of keeping her name ever bright and ever radi- ant. To those who have been near us — faculty, administration, brother classes — we extend our appreciation and gratitude for many happy experiences; their memories will re- main with us always; the moments with them will oft be relived in memory’s retrospect. May our successors keep alive the spirit of friendliness, cooperation, and active par- ticipation in governmental affairs which we have cherished. May these words recall us to you, if, by chance, “auld acquaintance be forgot.” Yours truly, W. Clarke Wescoe, Class Life President Page Forty-fiv entorS RALPH A. ALDERFER Lansdale, Pa.

Fellows Page Fifty-two TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1942: I am indeed very happy and proud to he able to enter a message of my own in the Golden Anniversary Edition which is being presented by the class on whose behalf I am writing as its President. I can well remember the fall of ’38 when our class first started out. I think we all re- member those pep talks, pajama parades, frosh regulations, and frosh-soph clashes. They all instilled a college spirit into us and gave us an impetus to march onwards to- wards a “Greater Muhlenberg.” Our class, I feel, was fast on the pick-up and immedi- ately fell into step. We advanced to our sophomore year and seemed to keep up a steady and careful forward pace toward that Greater Muhlenberg. As juniors, our position now seems to be that of the runner just rounding the last turn heading for the home stretch. We have al- most completed this round in a successful fashion. We have met forces both bitter and sweet and have kept moving forward. I feel now, more than ever, the import- ance of our class as an integral part of Muh- lenberg College. As the runner in the home stretch must exert extra energy to reach his goal, we, the class of ’42, must spurt and make every effort to set continuously the pace in order that, at the finish, when we are about to graduate, we will see a Greater Muhlenberg left in the hands of those who will be prepared to carry on this Greater Muhlenberg by maintaining a forward- moving policy. Our class, in its accomplishments has al- ways had, uppermost in mind, Muhlenberg. Though we have almost completed three years, we must not bog down. Let us con- tinue to be a forward-moving part of a for- ward-moving student body which is hon- ored by the name, Muhlenberg College. Yours truly, Alexander W. Busby Junior Class President Pane Fifty-three umorj Robert E. Albee ALLENTOWN, PA. Ph.B. — Mask and Dagger; Alpha Psi Omega; Chess Club; CIARLA staff. Harold Benjamin CONYNGHAM, PA.

Ottinger Page Eighty-eight ass o TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1943: It is reasonable to expect that, after a period of decadence, there must be an era of reconstruction if the human race is to perpetuate itself. Such being the case, there will be, after the present world conflict has run its course, a period of rebuilding in evi- dence here as well as on the Continent, in the Near East, and in the Far East. The plan- ners, the executors, the leaders of any of the reconstruction schemes of tomorrow will be the youth of today. When the time is ready and the call comes, the youth of the present must be ready and must be eager to answer. outh of the class of 1943, we — you and I — must be ready to answer. A perusal of any history text will bring out lucidly how in the past many attempts at reconstruction and revitalization were dis- mal and virtually complete failures, serving only to precipitate new complications. Many of these failures were caused by illogical thinking, intolerance, and duty-dodging on the part of the leaders and executors. Such failures must be guarded against in the fu- ture. The responsibility for this watch-dog task will fall upon the leaders of the future. It is evident, then, that we must be individuals who are intelligent, tolerant, and thorough, and who can reason logically and wisely. Such attributes are not plucked from vines like clusters of grapes, nor are they gotten from ponderous tomes by the process of osmosis; they must be acquired through character development, by dint of constant practice, and by diligent application of rigid principles. A heterogeneous group like our college community here at Muhlenberg offers thous- and fold opportunities for the acquisition and development of these desirable and necessary traits. In our daily contacts, in our academic life, on the athletic held, in our social whirl we are allowed- — if only we will! — to develop a feeling of tolerance, a sense of duty, and an attitude of thorough execu- ti on in whatever we undertake. This I say to the Class of 1943: let us train and discipline ourselves today with an eye to the future. Let us as a unit, and as individuals, develop a tolerance, a sense of duty, and a thorough attitude worthy of one who would call himself a Muhlenberg man ! Paul L.

Beard LeRoy Ziegenfuss inety-six a65 o TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1944: Benjamin Franklin, during the course of his very eventful and adventurous life, once remarked, “Little strokes fell great oaks.” Success, for which we are all striving, is our great oak, and each step we take in that direction is a stroke at this sturdy tree. The class of 1944 is completing its first year at Muhlenberg, and its members have cut their first wedge into the outer bark, piercing the meaty wood. Perhaps we strike determined to fell the lofty tree with one powerful stroke, but the shiny blade of the axe falls upon the bark with a dull thud. We realize after our fruit- less attempts that only with constant and determined strokes will the towering tree begin to fall. But, life, too, is only under- stood by determination — determination to understand not only facts, but people, ideas, and manners. True, to some of the fortunate people, satisfaction comes with the initial attempt, but for the majority, satisfaction is gained only with perseverence. Not all per- sons are content with the minimum that life has to offer, and it is these people who are constantly striving to get ahead of the crowd, that give impetus to progress. College students belong to the class of in- dividuals who are not content to take life as it comes. The very fact that they are at- tending college, and putting forth effort to better equip themselves for life in this world of keen competition, indicates they are in- tent on success. Here at Muhlenberg, we are molding our attitude toward life, and the attitude we develop will reflect on Muhlen- berg as well as ourselves. The past year of college has launched each of us on some career. What that career may be, and what each fellow will make of it, varies according to the individual. How- ever, we may be sure of this, only those who earn it, achieve success. Success is not a gift from heaven; it is the fruit of diligent labor. Yours truly, James Hemstreet, Freshman Class President Page Ninety-seven men G. HERBERT ABEL Lansdowne, Pa. A.B. ; Lambda Chi Alpha. EDWARD ANDREJESKE Bethlehem, Pa. A.B. ANTHONY L.

Page One Hundred T wo I THLETICS . ★ 1893 -VARSITY FOOTBALL ... 1902 - VARS year of s rinieucs decl luf tL( recon tana Almost the entire development of sports at Muhlenberg has been during the last fifty years, or, during the reign of the CIARLA as an an- nual record. Football, as a varsity sport, began in 1893 on the local campus and was followed closely by baseball and tennis in the “Gay Nineties” era. Basketball came in as a varsity sport in 1902 and track fol- lowed within a few years after. Most recently, wrestling was added in 1939. ITY BASKETBALL ... 1939 - WRESTLING to a trusty trainer. Because he has had the closest of contacts with all Muhlenberg e than twenty years, we honor “Scotty” Renwick and recognize his valuable services. c -A tribute athletes for m elic Hadminii l ration Progress in this field of endeavor at Muh- lenberg has been comparatively slow. How- ever, in the past few years, sports have ad- vanced much more considerably than in the past and promising predictions have been made recently as far as near-future develop- ment is concerned. The sports squads on the campus at the present are probably stronger than ever in the College’s athletic history. Football, bas- ketball, and wrestling not only have varsity teams hut also freshman arrays. Steps have been taken to strengthen other parts of the program. At present, baseball, tennis, and track are the only sports without freshman squads, besides the regular varsity squads. Before this year, freshmen were allowed to compete in these three sports, but now only track allows such a practice. Although frosh teams have been not yet established for base- ball and tennis, it is hoped that 1942 will find them instituted. Cross country, the fall ver- GURNEY F.

SHANKWEILER Tennis Coach sion of track at Muhlenberg, has progressed favorably in the last two years. The team, in the 1940 season, won two of three engage- ments. One of the most under-rated, though not student-neglected, phases of athletics on the campus is the annual intramurals program under the direction of the physical education office. Year by year, this program has in- creased gradually until, finally, the one-league arrangement was this spring found inadequ- ate. Fourteen teams entered the league, which was then split into two separate divisions, rims was the intramurals program of the past several years virtually doubled in both number of teams and participants. All in all, despite the many annual ad- vances made in athletics at Muhlenberg, an undercurrent of anticipation of the proposed Seip Memorial Athletic Building leads the keen observer to believe that the realization of this project alone will send Muhlenberg to the heights to which she aspires.

Page One Hundred Ten Baseball: ig40 Season In the very first issue of the CIARLA base- hall held its position. In that issue five teams or “nines” were mentioned — one for each class and the academic squad. The CIARLA in 1895 added a college nine to the list and in 1897, only this array was mentioned in the yearbook. Baseball picked up gradually with the CIARLA of the Class of 1900 printing a pic- ture of the varsity club with Robert C. Horn, present dean of Muhlenberg, playing right field. The past season was successful for the Muhlenberg baseballers, who won seven and lost only four. The Mules opened the season at Lafayette with the reliable Mike Wasko- wich on the mound. However, not quite ready for such stiff competition, the locals lost out, 5-0. The story of the second game, played the next day, was altogether different. With Whitey Kurowski and Normie clouting hom- ers for the home team to lead the attack, a 14-0 win was effected. Pete Schneider went all the way for Berg and allowed but three hits. Muhlenberg’s traditional rivals, Lehigh’s Engineers, came to Allentown the following Saturday and the teams collaborated to pro- vide the most exciting home game of the sea- son. Waskowich and Schneider shared the pitching duties against Lehigh, the former getting credit for the 11-10 win. Lehigh led until the last part of the ninth, 10-6, but a five-run rally turned the tide Muhlenberg- ward. In the Temple game Dick Busby and Mike Waskowich, in right field that day, hit home runs for the Mules to aid the 8-5 downfall of the Owls. Pete Schneider got credit for the win, although Trinkle relieved him in the seventh inning. Lehigh gained revenge for the previous five-run rally by the Mules in their own sta- dium and won their first baseball game from Muhlenberg since the 1936 season. Busby again homered for the locals, who outhit the Engineers to no avail. Trinkle, who relieved Waskowich on the mound, was charged wit h the loss. Phil Hill en’s Mulelets got their first chance to play when P.M.C. traveled to Berg next. Losing his three sterling frosh pitchers — Frank Jakobowski, Luther Knerr, and Johnny Myers — plus other frosh, Hillen saw his new team trounce the inferior Cadets, 11-1. Knerr received credit for the win. Knerr then started against Ursinus at Col- legeville and he lost a heartbreaking ten-in- ning game, 3-2. The Mules had several scor- ing opportunities, although they did not show too much power at the plate. This was the best example of a pitching duel during the entire season. Following this tight game came the most hectic playing all season, as the Mules de- feated the slugging Bullets from Gettysburg, 14-11. Coach Hillen used four pitchers — Waskowich, Schneider, Myers, and Knerr. Schneider got credit for the win. Dick Busby poled out his third homer of the season in this game. Berg continued powerfully at the plate in their next game against Juniata, but not many runs were scored, as the Indians won out, 4-3. Jakobowski and Waskowich held the foe to eight hits, while the locals were getting twelve, including Simcox’s home run. Jako- bowski was charged with the defeat. At Bucknell the Mules kept up their splen- did hitting pace, as Stamus and Schappell both connected for home runs in the 15-5 barrage of the Bison. Knerr started the game and re- ceived the win, but he left early in order that Baseball: ig40 Season he might he saved. Johnny Myers mopped up for the Mules’ starter. The Lpsala game being rained out after only three innings of play, the Mules went to Annville to meet Lebanon Valley. Trailing most of the way, the locals won the game in the next to last inning as Harry Becker sent a long homer out to left held with one man on base. Smithers also hit for the circuit. Thus, Luther Knerr won his third game, after re- lieving Jakobowski in the seventh. This ended the season for the Mules, for the game with Penn State and the Alumni Day game with Lebanon Valley again were also rained out, although one inning of the latter was played. Hurling stars for the year were Pete Schneider and Luther Knerr. Schneider won three and lost none, while Knerr won a like number but lost one. Whitey Kurowski led the team in hitting with a clean .500 average, although Schappell led in power drives with four triples and a homer. Dick Busby led in homers with three. With the end of this 1940 baseball season and the commencement exercises following came also the end of the collegiate baseball careers of several outstanding performers. All in all, seven members of the squad were lost and these seven all were regulars. One of these, however, N elson Graham, was in- jured while catching a pre-season practice game and he was lost for the season. In the 1939 campaign Graham had patrolled right held for the Mul es. Edwin Smithers, who was the most versa- tile ball player on the squad, was also lost to Coach Phil Hillen. Though he would have been a senior and captain of the club in ' 41, outfielder Smithers fell ill over the summer and was unable to return to school last fall. His loss was a great one. Almost the entire infield left Muhlenberg and also left a great problem for Coach Hil- len for ’41. The only member of the infield remaining was second baseman Normie Mor- ris, who was shift ed to shortstop this year. Dick Busby, who had been shifted from sec- ond to first to fill the latter gap; Ralph Schap- pell, who had been used somewhat in the out- field, at shortstop; and third baseman Howie Simcox, who showed extra-classy form, round out the Mule foursome. “Whitey” Kurowski, who was both sta- tioned and stationary in the outfield, did pro- vide local fans with much enthusiasm because of his .500 batting average. One of the heav- iest hitters on the team, Kurowski made up for his weird outfielding antics by pounding out basehits. Infielders Busby and Schappell also pounded the ball hard and frequently and also presented sterling infield work. In 1939 this duo cooperated in a keystone combina- tion which racked up many double plays. Zolt Stamus, whose work behind the plate for three years had earned him the nickname of “Carry-the-load,” took off th e pads, grad- uated, and left Muhlenberg without even a sub catcher. Though not a heavy hitter by any means, Stamus did hold up all Mule pitch- ing well. Mike Waskowich, pitcher and outfielder, hit well in his two seasons here. As a pitcher, he won four and lost one in 1939, but last year his record read but one and one. How- ever, he proved himself to be as efficient an outfielder as necessary for the Mules.

A list of the men in the club as well as a picture of the old courts where the parking lot is now situated comprised the write-up of tennis in that book. In the book of the Class of 1910, the tennis club was again mentioned, that year adding to its list two members of the faculty, Dr. Robert C. Horn and Dr. Robert R. Fritsch. From then, tennis dropped from favor among students and was revived only period- ically until Dr. John V. Shankweiler took charge in 1934. Since then, tennis has become an outstanding sport at Muhlenberg, as, in the 1937 season, the team won nine matches out of twelve they played. The Mules opened their 1940 season with a team of four sophomores and two fresh- men playing in the singles. Sophomores Ray Moats, Jack Minogue, Ed Klink, and Ralph Berry played numbers one, two, five, and six, respectively, while freshmen Jack Schantz and Bob Minogue rounded out the team by playing the three and four spots. This team was intact in almost every match on the schedule. Swarthmore came to Muhlenberg’s home courts, the Oakmont Tennis Club, first last season after four previously scheduled matches had been rained out. The Mule rackets opened their season successfully. On the following day, the team went to Lafayette and beat the Leopards, 7-2. Al- bright came next as the third team in as many days, but the Mules took the Lions into camp handily by trouncing them, 9-0. Moravian was next on the schedule and also fell before the Cardinal and Grey, 8-1. Dickinson followed Moravian and took the same road back home, for the Mules turned away the Indian just as handily, 8-1. Buck- nell came to Allentown next and took a pair of matches that day before they finally drop- ped the meet to the local team, 7-2. H averford was next on the Mules’ sched- ule, and they, too were trounced, 7-1. Lebanon Valley was literally blasted off the court when Muhlenberg’s racqueteers swept through them, 9-0, without dropping a single set and without being forced to play a single deuce set. Lehigh handed the Mule squad its only defeat of the season when the tennis-playing Engineers came to Allentown, drubbed the local squad badly, and carried off an 8-1 vic- i Page One Hundred Fourteen DR. JOHN V. SHANKWEILER Coach tory. Ed Klink was the only home lad who won his match on that dread day. Temple was next. Hot from the thumping they had received at the hands of the boys from across the valley, the Muhlenberg boys swept through their opposition, dropped only one set, and were granted two defaults as they hit the top, winning 9-0. Rutgers tried their luck against the Mules’ machine, and could do no better than lose 6-3, providing the Cardinal and Grey with its tenth win of the year. The last meet on the schedule was with F. and M. Rain halted proceedings while the match was still in the singles stage. At that time Muhlenberg had won three match- es without trouble, were leading their oppo- nents in two others, and were tied in the sixth match. Thus ended the most successful tennis sea- son in Muhlenberg’s history. Ray Moats led the way for the team all the way as he won ten matches and lost but one. Jack Minogue, his doubles partner in a combination that also lost only once, had two losses against nine wins. Jack Schantz and Bobby Minogue also lost but two matches, while Eddie Klink had the best average on the squad by getting the nod in all eleven matches he played. Ralph Berry and A1 Goldsmith also produced good averages with eight wins and five losses for Berry and a three-two advantage for Gold- smith. Moats Schantz Klink Goldsmith Minogue, J. Minogue, K. Berry Lorish (Mgr.) Track: ig40 Season Bad weather forced the Lehigh meet to he cancelled, and the team opened the season against Lafayette with a 76j 2-49 4 loss. Zel- lers, Muehlhauser, Hill, and Psiaki — all freshmen — and sophomores Kidd and Schmoyer did well in their events. “Bull” Eberly was at home in the field at once, and he promptly proved it by breaking Muhlen- berg’s record for the shot put with a throw that carried 42 ' 6 " . The former record had been 41 ' 10 " . The next dual meet was against St. Jo- seph’s. Here the Mules won out, 76 2 3 to 49 1 3. Captain Eberly again paved the way by breaking his own shot record. This time his heave reached 44 ' l " . Again the Mules took to track and field in the LaSalle meet and put another notch in the spikes of their shoes as they came out on the long end of a 72-54 score. Long-striding Johnny Psiaki left his field far behind as he coasted in to win the two-mile run in the record-breaking time of 1 0 :0 1 . “Bull” Eberly again got his beef behind the ball and shoved it to still another record, breaking his own mark for the second time. This mark was 44 ' iy 4 " , his best effort for the season. Gettysburg came as Muhlenberg’s last vic- tim in dual competition, the Cardinal and Page One Hundred Sixteen The first evidence of track at Muhlen- berg that is recorded in the college annual is found in the CIARLA of the Class of 1 905. In that book one page was devoted to list- ing the men on the track team of the Class of 1906. Nine men were on the team, and listed in the relay quartet was none other than the present head of Muhlenberg’s German department, Dr. Preston A. Barba. A college relay t eam was also mentioned. Nothing more is printed in the yearbook until the CIARLA of the Class of 1909 was published. This book showed that interest in track was growing by printing a picture of the Muhlenberg track team. It remained for the CIARLA of the Class of 1911 to mark the greatest advance in track in Muhlenberg’s history, for here was recorded the results of Muhlenberg’s first intercollegiate track meet. It was held on May 7, 1 9 TO, and Muhl- enberg carried off first honors by beating Delaware, 74-52. Seven men were awarded their varsity “M’s” in track that year for their work. The 1940 track team at Muhlenberg en- joyed the most successful season since the sport was begun at Muhlenberg in 1908. It was Albert McGall’s third year as track coach. ALBERT McGALL Coach Grey narrowly missing putting its score in three columns to win, 99-27. The Mules blanked their rivals in six events — the 120- yard high hurdles, the mile run, the 440-yard run, the pole vault, the shot-put, and the dis- cus. Tn addition to this they also took first places in the two-mile run, the 880-yard run, the 220-yard low hurdles, and the javelin, besides tying for first place in the high jump. A mile relay team composed of Kidd, Newpher, Humanick, and Schmoyer took fourth place in the Penn Relays. Later, at the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference meet, the Diplomats from Franklin and Mar- shall, with 60 t 2 points, barely were able to withstand the challenge of the Mules’ 56. At the meet, Paul Kidd broke the conference record for the 220-yard low hurdles by breaking the tape in 25.8 seconds. “Bull” Eberly put his name on the record hooks a second time whe n he threw the discus 13 V 3 G " , breaking the conference record for the event, as well as lowering his own Muhlen- berg record that he had set a year before. The Middle Atlantic States Collegiate Ath- letic Association meet followed, and Muhlen- berg’s freshman medley team — Muehlhaus- er, Hill, Zellers, and Psiaki — left their oppo- nents far behind as they won in the near- record time of 7 minutes, 50.8 seconds. ALVIN F. JULIAN Head Coach Football: ig40 Season Muhlenberg College completed its fifty- first season of intercollegiate football with a record of four wins and six losses. Football, Muhlenberg’s oldest sport, started in 1889 when the college finally had sufficient ma- terial to start a team. From 1892 on Muhlen- berg was represented by varsity elevens and class teams. Cardinal and Grey teams have executed excellent performances on the gridiron with such astounding victories as a 54-0 win over New York University in 1913, a 14-7 tri- umph over Fordham in 1921 and a 3-0 win over Penn State as late as 1933. Among the coaches who led the Mules from 1900 on are Singmaster, Buckley, Bull, McCaa, Price, Ritter, Spiegel, Wood, Benfer, Holstrom, Utz, and Julian. File first Muhlenberg elevens did not have very large squads and took their defeats left and right. Usual opponents were Ursinus, Lafayette, I ebanon Valley, Lehigh, and a few other small colleges. From 1900-1925 the Cardinal and Grey teams were none too good. Fdowever, in 1925 Muhlenberg started to go upward. That year’s eleven finished the season with a record of six wins, three losses and a scoreless tie. In 1926 Muhlenberg had what is rated as one of its best teams. With Nick Borelli pac- ing the attack they recorded seven wins and three losses. In 1927 there was a capable eleven but from 1928-1932 the Cardinal and Grey elevens could only win nine of thirty- eight contests. With “Flaps” Benfer at the helm in 1933 the Muhlenberg eleven swept through the season with seven victories and three defeats and ended up in a tie for the Eastern Penn- sylvania Intercollegiate Conference title. This was the highest record that any Muhlenberg eleven ever recorded in this conference. The following two years were disappointing with the Mules winning only two in 1934 and one in 1935. Alvin Julian took over the coaching reign in 1936 with Phil Fiillen as assistant coach. Their first season resulted in two wins and six losses and one tie. The next year Muhlenberg finished the season with five triumphs in 10 games. Julian’s team of 1938 is rated with the 1926 eleven as being one of Muhlenberg’s greatest. They won seven and lost three, at the same time winning their last six in a row. In 1939 the Cardinal and Grey eleven won six and lost four. Page One Hundred Eighteen In 1940 the Mules started oft with losses against L ' psala, Temple, Lafayette, Albright and Franklin and Marshall but then won four straight against Gettysburg, Ursinus, Lehigh and Dickinson before dropping a close con- test to Bucknell. Captain Perry Scott, star tackle, became the first Muhlenberg player ever to gain a position on the Associated Press’s All-Penn- sylvania eleven. John Bisset, fullback, was unanimously elected to succeed Scott at the helm. As Gettysburg met defeat at the hands of the Mules . . .

The Mules out- played their opponents during the entire game but failed to move the ball when they got within the Upsala 20-yard stripe. Muhlenberg traveled to Philadelphia on the evening of September 29 and met a strong Temple University eleven. The Owls proved too classy for the Cardinal and Grey and swamped Coach A1 Julian ' s eleven, 64-7, at Temple Stadium. The only Muhlenberg touchdown was scored by Pete Schneider on a pass in the third quarter. Muhlenberg’s football squad next faced Albright at Reading and their losing streak went to three straight as they lost 14-3. “Cowboy” Jim Franklin kicked a 27-yard held goal in the first quarter to give Muhlen- berg a 3-0 lead, but Albright came back in the second and fourth quarters to score twice on pass plavs. The Mules returned to their home held on the following Saturday to face an undefeated Lafayette College eleven. The Leopards put on a second-half scoring spree to defeat Muhlenberg 26-7. Lafayette scored first when Zirinsky kicked a 27-yard held goal hut Muhlenberg took the lead on Bossick’s pass to Minifri in the end zone in the second period. Muhlenberg did not hold the lead long as Lafayette came back in the same period with another touch- down. Franklin and Marshall was Muhlenberg’s next opponent. Coach Julian’s eleven trav- eled to Lancaster to lose a 14-12 heartbreak- er to the Diplomats, who had won hve straight before playing Muhlenberg. The Cardinal and Grey led the Diplomats 6-0 as the half was ending. Coach Julian in- serted the reserves at this point and Franklin and Marshall scored two touchdowns in the last two minutes of the second period. Muhlenberg won its first game of the sea- son when they defeated Ursinus on October 26 at Muhlenberg Field. The Mules put on a razzle-dazzle exhibition to defeat the Bears, 1 5-6, in a second half scoring splurge after trailing 6-0 at halftime. I he Cardinal and Grey eleven continued its sterling offensive play against Gettysburg on November 2 at Muhlenberg Field. They scored a 20-0 win over the Bullets with Bos- sick, Gorgone and Bisset pacing the attack. The Mules outplayed the losers in every department of the game as they made twelve first downs to Gettysburg’s six and gained a total of 289 yards from scrimmage to 69 yards for Gettysburg. In their annual battle with Lehigh Univer- sity, the Mules came out victorious with a 25-6 triumph at Bethlehem. The Engineers gave Muhlenberg a brilliant fight with their air attack but the Mule offense proved too much for Lehigh. In the final game of the season against Bucknell at Lewisburg on November 23 the Mules lost a hard fought 6-0 game to the Bisons. Bucknell scored their only touchdown in the third quarter.

SIMPSON Coach Freshman Football Under the expert tutelage of Coach Albert Simpson, former stalwart of Muhlenberg’s varsity line, and his capable assistant, Nelson Graham, former passing ace of the Mule backfield, the 1940 aggregation of football enthusiasts finished the season with a credit- able record. In its opening encounter of the season, the freshman squad defeated the previously un- beaten eleven from Wyoming Seminary of Wilkes-Barre by the overwhelming score of 21 - 0 . Bob Haldeman, who scored the first touch- down for the Mulelets hy a 65-yard dash fol- lowing a pass from Tony Annecharico, was outstanding in the backfield as was Ray Coch- ran, who plays the opposite halfback to Haldeman. Traveling to Newark the following Satur- day, October 26, resulted in the freshmen receiving their lone defeat of the season at the hands of the strong St. Benedict’s Prep team, 7-0. Following a first half in which play shunted hack and forth over the fifty yard line, the Mules staved off a Gray Bee scoring thrust, but weakened shortly afterwards and St. Benedict’s squad was able to push over the score which proved to be the margin of vic- tory. During the first quarter of this contest Ray Cochran received a head injury which resulted in his removal from the line-up for the re- mainder of the gridiron season. George Nit- tolo and Bill Evans both received minor leg injuries. Meeting Brown Prep, in the first home game of the local freshmen, enabled the frosh eleven to win its second victory of the season. Playing before home fans the freshmen dis- played a brilliant offensive and swamped the eleven from Brown Prep by the large margin of 27-7. Lehigh’s “best freshman team in our his- tory” did not walk over the Berg freshmen as they had expected to, but were tied 12»13 when Dave Barbieri kicked a field goal, du- plicating his successful attempt in the first period, on the very last play of the game. Gettysburg’s freshmen were the final vic- tims of the season and they fell to defeat be- fore the unerring toe of Barbieri, whose suc- cessful conversion, following his own touch- down pass to Celian, enabled the Simpson- men to win 7-6. Page One Hundred Twenty-four Cross Country In the second year of its revival as a major fall sport of the Muhlenberg athletic cur- riculum, cross country proved to he even more popular than it had been last year. About a dozen men answered the call is- sued by Coach A1 McGall, and of these dozen men nine participated in at least one of the three dual races held during the past season. Starting to get into condition shortly after the fall semester began, the cross country men were well accustomed to the terrain of the beautiful Trexler Memorial Park course when it came time for the Lafayette meet, which was held on October I 2. Avenging the defeat received the year pre- vious on the Lafayette home course, the Berg harriers took the first three places to defeat the Leopards 25-30. John Psiaki, record-breaking two-miler, led the entire distance, and finished the three and seven-eighths mile course in the very good time of 20 :03. Art Hill, outstanding Berg half-miler, who ran almost the entire race holding his side with his hand because of muscular pains, fin- ished second just a half-minute behind Psiaki. Putting on a last-minute sprint, Jim Re- maley was able to beat out the first Lafayette man to cross the line and to place third for Berg. Other Muhlenberg men to place were Berghorn, who finished in ninth place, and Kern, who finished in tenth place. Muhlenberg ran away with Lehigh on the latter’s own course to the tune of 21-34 for the Muhlenberg harriers’ second straight vic- tory of the season. Muhlenberg’s galloping triumvirate — Psiaki, Hill, and Rameley — again finished one, two, three for the local squad. Berghorn ended in the seventh position, while Kern fol- lowed him across the line in eighth place. In this meet, John Psiaki set a new record for the five-mile Saucon Valley Country Club course, by travelling the distance in 26:30. Franklin and Marshall’s undefeated run- ners humbled the home team on the local course on a very cold November 7, by the score of 19-36. Peifer, Middle Atlantic two-mile cham- pion, finished first for the victors, while Art Hill, the first Muhlenberg man to cross the line, placed second. h ollowing the four Franklin and Marshall men who crossed the line after Hill were Hefter, Remaley, Berghorn, and Kern in that order. Psiaki dropped out of the race because the cold stiffened his muscles. NS,. ' Page One Hundred Twenty-five Page One Hundred Twenty-six I j. MINOGUE BUSBY DIEFENDERFER ig 40 - 4 I Captained by Neal Diamond, the only senior on the team, and coached by “Doggie” Julian, the varsity basketball squad began practice sessions early with the fond hope of finally copping a Conference championship. And prospects were rosy, for the squad had lost but a few regulars through graduation leaving a squad of veterans — one senior and six juniors, augmented by a group of Sophs who had made a remarkable record as fresh- men the year before. The first few games on the schedule were purely practice games, and as such served their purpose well, for the team met some of the best teams in the East, gaining experience and polish in each of the contests. Muhlenberg ' s The opening game of the season brought a smooth St. Joseph ' s five from Philadelphia to the Little Palestra on December tbe sev- enth. Led by their captain, Larry Kenney, who was crowned the high scorer in the Phila- delphia district, and presenting a fast offen- sive, the St. Joe boys were able to top the Mules by a 57-33 score, in spite of the floor- work of Captain Diamond and the high scor- ing of Pete Schneider. The following Wednesday the Mules took to the road to play Temple university in Phil- adelphia. Both teams missed many shots and the halftime score stood at a low 8-7 with the Mul es in the lead, but the Temple squad caught on during the second half, outscoring the Mules 27 points to 13, and going on to win 34-2 1 . The Upsala Vikings stopped off at the Little Palestra the next night and found that the Mules had finally hit their stride, and as a result went down to defeat, never once hold- ing the lead. That score was 49-30. The game saw the entire Berg squad in action. The Little Palestra was filled to capacity the following Saturday night to see a highly touted Manhattan college quintet just barely nose out the local five in a hotly contested game. The two teams were fairly even with M anhattan sinking only one more field goal than Berg, but poor foul shooting — the Mules sank only two of 15 fouls — finally proved the undoing for the home team. The game ended with the score standing 43-36 in favor of the Jaspers. The Christmas lay-off didn’t seem to both- er the Mules for January 8 found them sound- ly trouncing a slow Bucknell Bison squad at the Little Palestra for the first conference victory of the season. The visitors were held Page One Hundred Twenty-eight Hoopmen KENNEDY ROWNEY BECKER R. MINOGUE CLIFFORD SWEDA to 12 points in the first half and the Mules were never threatened. Charlie Trinkle starred for the locals, sinking 1 1 held goals, and leading the team on to the 56-38 victory. The Lafayette Leopards next invaded the Palestra on the eleventh and also met defeat at the hands of an aroused Mule team led by big Pete Schneider. The Leopards held the lead until the closing minutes of the game when Berg began to move and finally found a way of penetrating Lafayette’s tight de- fense, and when the final gong sounded, the home team had turned the tables with a 52-40 victory. File next conference game found the Mules traveling to Collegeville to meet a hot Ur- sinus team, who already had two straight conference victories under their belt. But this time the Bears met their match in Pete Schneider, who almost single-handedly won the game. Sinking two foul shots after the final whistle had already been blown with Ursinus two points ahead and thus tying the score, big Pete went on to sink the clinching basket of the game. All in all, Pete ended the evening witli 25 points under his belt, and with a 5 1-48 victory for his team. That made it two straight conference games for the Mules, and things certainly did look bright. But it seems that all that luck just couldn’t last for on the sixteenth the squad went to Lewisburg and lost to Bucknell almost as badly as they had previously beaten the Bi- sons. The 54-38 Bucknell victory dumped the Mules into second place in the conference standings, with unbeaten F M on top. Fhe Bucknell defeat seemed to do things to the Mules for on the eighteenth they com- pletely overwhelmed the Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon Valley with a 62-47 score to chalk NEAL DIAMOND ( captain ) men up another conference victory. Never headed or even bothered Trinkle and Schneider led in the scoring with 14 and 13 points respec- tively. The Little Palestra saw another complete- ly Muhlenberg night on the twenty-fifth when Berg swamped a weak PMC team under a 42-24 score. The varsity men were used spar- ingly in the game for there were some tough conference games on tap. The first of these tough conference games found an invading Gettysburg team getting the short end of the score for the first time in thirteen successive games. Neal Diamond’s floorwork and Jack Minogue’s scoring re- sulted in another 44-38 conference victory for the Mules. Although the next home game on February 5 was not a conference game, it held a lot of interest as a tradition, for it found the hap- less Engineers of Lehigh again going down before the Hying hoofs of the Mules by an exciting 47-45 score, in spite of the sparkling play by Lehigh’s Binder, who put on a per- formance equal to any seen on the home court. The next night found the Mules again hard pressed by a fighting Lebanon Valley team who, playing on their own floor, were anxious to avenge their previous defeat. They almost succeeded, but again Pete Schneider came through to put the Mules ahead in the last few seconds of the game, which ended with the score standing 36-35. Again the Mules had come through in a conference match. But all good things must have an end and Muhlenberg finally met her match when the undefeated h M Diplomats visited the Little Palestra and, before the largest crowd ever to witness a Muhlenberg basketball game, handed the Mules their second league defeat. The Mules showed little of their former fight and bowed submissively to the Dips by the score of 44-25. Some of the sting of the L M defeat was lost, however, when Berg went over to Beth- lehem and managed to squeeze through an extra-period victory over a fast Binder-led Lehigh five. All this proved conclusively Muhlenberg’s athletic supremacy over Le- high, the Mules having trounced the Engi- neers in football and now twice on the boards. But the joys of victory were again damp- ened when an aggressive Ursinus team knocked all conference title hopes out of the Page One Hundred Thirty window by ekeing out a close 43-41 victory over the Mules, who followed on the heels of the Bears throughout the game, but were unable to come through in the final moments. However, some satisfaction was realized when Berg went to Easton and overcame a halftime Leopard lead to sweep the 1941 series by defeating Lafayette 39-31. The game was close and the score was tied at least twelve times. Again Berg showed some of their early speed and form to snap an eight game streak by beating a fast Albright squad to the tune of 51-42. The game was one of the fastest of the season and was the sixth league victory for Muhlenberg. All title hopes were completely shattered, however, on the twenty-sixth, when the Mules were humbled by the Bullets of Gettysburg, who managed to stave off a Mule rally to emerge with a 31-27 victory. It seems that the Bullets are unbeatable on their own floor. The following evening saw the Mules meet a very fast and a very tough Penn State five and, though putting up a good fight, again met a defeat to the tune of 52-29. Again returning home the Mules turned the tables on a highly favored LaSalle team, who had held L.I.U. to a one point extra- period victory the evening before, and sur- prised them by squeezing out a 51-49 deci- sion in by far the fastest game of the season. The LaSalle victory bolstered the hopes of the Mules for a win over the high-riding L M Diplomats, but again Berg, this time at Lancaster, met up with trouble and went down under a 41-38 score after leading until the final minutes of the game. There remained but one game on the sched- ule — a game of great importance for it meant the difference of second or third place in the conference standings. Thus, with great hopes the Mules went to Reading, but were again swamped by the open fast attack of the Lions. The Mules’ early lead was quickly surpassed by the lightning attack of the Lions, and the 54-39 final score found the Mules in fourth place in the conference, Bucknell having crept into third. And so the season ended, perhaps not as well as was expected, but good enough for any team. Muhlenberg split her conference games, winning and losing six; losing twice only to L M and winning twice from Leba- non Valley. Of the twenty-three game sched- ule, the Mules won thirteen and lost ten; a pretty fair record in any league. ;• IQ40-4I n To the disinterested observer the recent wrestling season at Muhlenberg presents a picture of dismal failure and defeat. Not once during the entire campaign did the squad reg- ister a single win. However, to get a true pic- ture of the aspect of the season more than statistical record of the team must be ex- amined. Primarily, the wrestling team was beset by first yearism and inexperience. The only I 939- 40 varsity man who was able to compete for the entire season was Captain Jimmy Brown. All of the other berths were occupied by soph- omores or by juniors in their first year of varsity competition. As a whole the spirit of the Scobeymen was superb. It is true that repeated defeat tends to dampen men’s spirits and to sap their zest for future combats. In the face of such consistent defeat the grap- plers stood up remarkably well, looked for- ward to each new match with unconcealed eagerness and the will to win. The one person who should have been discouraged was the mentor, Howell Scobey, but he worked inces- santly and tirelessly with his charges in an ef- fort to manufacture a win for the Mules. Undoubtedly, lack of competition within the team itself accounted for some of the losses. There has been too little interest in wrestling as a sport, and as a consequence too few of the students evidence enough in- terest to participate actively. This, the third wrestling club to repre- sent the Cardinal and Grey, was the first team to wrestle under the new point system adopted by the National Intercollegiate Wrestling Association. In the first meet of the season at the Little Palestra, Muhlenberg was handed a defeat by Haverford College. Jimmy Brown and Bert Gilbert pinned their opponents while Footer Wolfe won a decision in the heavy- weight division, 16-7. Warren Nafis lost a hard-fought bout, 13-12. The final count stood at 26-13 for Haverford. On January 1 1 after a long Christmas holi- day lay-off, the Mule matmen journeyed to Philadelphia to he swamped by the Temple University grapplers, 29-3. Jim Brown was the only man to score, as he won a decision over his opponent. It was in this match that Wolfe sustained an injury which kept him out of the line-up for the rest of the season. In the match against Rutgers University, Captain Brown, Nafis, and Gilbert were the only men to garner any points for Muhlen- berg. The former won on a forfeit and the latter two took decisions to score six points between them. The final count was 25-11 with Page One Hundred Thirty-two Muhlenberg on the short end. From this point on and through the remainder of the season the heavy-weight spot was open be- cause of an injury to Lin Yerg, the varsity unlimited. Travelling to Gettysburg on the 18th of January, the sons of the canvas met with negative success again. Again Jimmy Brown and Bert Gilbert were the lone wrestlers to score for the Mules, both by virtue of deci- sions. G-burg, 26; M-berg, 6. Journeying to Quakertown to wrestle for a Lion’s Club benefit on February 8, the Car- dinal and Gray contingent met and was van- quished by a strong squad from Ursinus Col- lege. By now Captain Brown, Gilbert, and Nafis had been christened the “Triumphant Trio” because of their consistent victories. They repeated in this contest, Brown and Nafis winning hy falls and Gilbert via the decision route. The total for the evening was reckoned at 25-13 for Ursinus. Leaving Pennsylvania soil and journeying to the metropolitan area, the Muhlenberg grapplers invaded the fastness of Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. Once again that trio of consistent winners emerged victorious from the fray. Brown and Gilbert both outpointed their men to register decisions, while Nafis threw his adversary to score a five-pointer. Johnnie Sweatlock lost a very close match, 7-6, on time advantage. After the final count it was found that once again the Mules had been borne to the mat, this time hy the score of 19-11. Competing against a strong Lafayette team at Allentown, the Cardinal and Grey squad again had its spine jarred. Warren Nafis and Bert Gilbert both outpointed their opponents to earn decisions. Creighton Faust at 165 pulled a surprise out of the bag by pinning his man heretofore unbeaten. This was the only meet of the regular season in which Jimmy Brown failed to win at 121. The final score: Lafayette, 19; Muhlenberg, 11. The rather dismal seasonal record left the Cardinal and Grey grapplers little to look forward to with the Middle Atlantic Colle- giate Wrestling Association championships in the offing. However, it must be said that the devotees of the canvas had everything to gain and nothing to lose. Undaunted, and un- equalled in optimism, the wrestlers shut their minds to the past and concentrated on pre- paring for the future fray. On March 7 the team turned toward the east and headed for Lafayette College where the championships were to be held. It was ex- pected in this locale that Brown, Gilbert, and Nafis would emerge from the contests with championships clutched firmly in their grasps. Such was not to be the case, however, for the only man to win a bout for Berg (and, in- cidentally, the only one to score) was Gil- bert. Page One Hundred Thirty-three Freshman Basketball Muhlenberg’s freshman basketball team gained a unique distinction this winter by winning all the games it played, of which there were fifteen including both inter-college and other exhibition games. One thing which aided the yearlings to ac- complish this feat was the fact that their teamwork was almost always present. That is, Coach Hillen used a two-team system al- most all season long. The first five consisted generally of Ken Stone, Jim Crampsey, Ralph Lentz, Jack Meyerdierks, and Ben Celian. The second squad found present Earl Repp, Ed H alperin, A1 Maki, Ray Beck, and Chuck Feist. Significant is the fact that six colleges which will face the Mules next season were defeated twice each by the Mulelets. These unfor- tunate institutions were Lebanon Valley, Al- bright, l rsinus, and F. and M. — all confer- ence foes — and Lehigh and Lafayette. Other defeated teams were the Jewish Community Center, which lost out 41-40; the Allentown Business College, which lost by a 38-37 count; and the Mount Airy Theo- logical Seminary, which lost 51-19. Lafayette opened the season for the locals and lost, 50-20, on the Palestra floor. Ken Stone gained scoring honors with 10, while his mate, Lentz, had 9. The locals then defeated L rsinus, 48-35. Lebanon Valley became the third victim, as the locals won out, 46-37. Ken Stone again scored high, but was forced to share honors with Lentz and Celian, who also tallied 11. In the most exciting game of the year the frosh then nosed out the Community Center varsity five, although the 38-37 A.B.C. en- counter was also a good game. Lehigh furnished the Hillenmen with their sixth straight win by bowing, 53-40. Once again Stone hit the cords the most with 15, with Jim Crampsey ringing up 14. Lebanon Valley was then beaten again, this time 38-20, and the Mulelets then won one from F. and M., 46-43. In the latter game Crampsey scored highest with 20 points. Lehigh lost again, 48-31, and the tenth game was won at the expense of L rsinus, 39- 30. Meyerdierks scored 12 against the Cubs to spark the offense. Lafayette also was beaten again, 62-43, and the Hillenmen played host to Albright. The Lions were no exception to the prevalent policy and lost out, 40- 31. Stone and Lentz scored 13 and 12 respectively. Mount Airy then provided the locals with their biggest margin of victory. With thirteen won already the locals then trounced F. and M., 57-29 and Albright 32-29, to make it fifteen for fifteen. Page One Hundred Thirty-four Freshman Freshman wrestling in its first year at Muhlenberg emulated varsity competition in one outstanding way — the frosh squad did not capture a win during the entire season. It was expected that the addition of this new activity for the first year men would bring aspirants tumbling into the “Ad” building gym to frolic and cavort in the grapplers ' haven. Only four of the men who did report for berths on the team had ever been exposed to wrestling before entering Berg — two in high school and two in prep school. The rather limited response to the call ruled out much of the inter-team competition which is so vital to the success of any athletic squad. It must be said, however, that, under the competent tutelage of Coach Howell Scobey, those interested novices who did report learned quickly and became ingrained de- votees of the mat. In the first match of the season, the Mule men met the grapplers from Franklin and Marshall Academy and were defeated. Pres- cott, Nittolo, and Evans were the only men to score markers for Berg. Prescott handled his opponent well, pinning him in 2 :07 of the second period. Nittolo took his match via the forfeit route, while Evans wrestled his man to a fall in 1 :06. The final score of the meet was counted at 25-15 in favor of F. M. On the eighteenth of January the frosh journeyed into the far reaches of Pennsyl- vania to be rather handily vanquished by the Gettysburg yearlings. In this match, as be- fore, Danny Prescott and “Blacksmith” Evans were the only two Mules to emerge victorious. Prescott won his bout at 155 by virtue of a forfeit and then wrestled an exhi- bition match at 165. Bill Evans was success- ful in decisioning his opponent, 8-2. The scorekeeper reckoned the count at 24 for G- Burg and 8 for M-Berg. For the third and final meet of the season the Cardinal and Grayers pitted craft, cun- ning, and cartilage against a contingent from Lafayette College. The outcome was inevit- able; M-Berg dropped its last contest. Ac- companying the old standbys was Wayne Keck, a new victor. All three of Muhlenberg’s winners pinned their adversaries — Evans in 3:30, Keck in 3:25, and Prescott mid-way in the second period. The final total was an- nounced at 25-15. The victor: Lafayette. filJiUli 1 Intramurals: 1440 For the second season in a row nine teams enlisted to take part in Director William S. Ritter’s annual intramurals program, which has grown not rapidly but consistently in the last few years. The main purpose of the pro- gram is to allow those boys not participating in varsity contests to experience something of the competitive spirit. Three new organizations entered the league this year to replace three others which dropped out. One of the latter — the Rene- gades — won the championship cup in 1938, but finished a miserable last in 1939. “F” Hall and the Phillies also withdrew. The new teams were West Hall, the Commutors, and the Bus-d-trinks. Another team — League Hall — left the league after basketball season, despite a very good average. The Pre-medicals also had en- tered but a poor record in basketball discour- aged them. Delta Theta won the race for the second straight year, after having lost out to the Renegades by a scant 4 34 points in 1938. Since the merging of this fraternity with Lambda Chi Alpha, it is hardly likely that the Delts will ever again win the cup, unless Lambda Chi may he considered them in ef- fect. Phi Kappa Tau was not far behind the Delts in the competition and did beat the latter for the volleyball championship. Delta Theta won the playground ball and the track meet sections, and also tied for first place in basketball with the Celtics. One thing which helped improve this sea- son’s record over that of last year was the fact that interest did not lag as noticeably. In ' 39 the track meet had been scheduled but only one team appeared for the competition. I bis past year much interest was found in this part of the league. INTRAMURAL RESULTS FOR THE 1940 SEASON n.

Yetter, ’93. It has not been our policy to present a fundamentally historical issue. Our staff assistants were instructed to mention the sources of the various organizations and it is hoped by the CIARLA officials that their work has been conscientious enough. Several arrangements in our edition are different from those of past years and, perhaps, they require explanation. We have dedicated this fiftieth volume to the man who created and named Muhlenberg’s annual publication, Mr. Yetter, who, we felt, was the only really appropriate choice for that honor. Nevertheless, we also felt that others on the campus itself should not be neglected. For that reason, each of the four parts of the book is opened with a page paying tribute to some individual connected with that particular topic. We hope that our choices will be acceptable. Sarony Studio, of Philadelphia, was our choice for the junior section photographic work and we are certain that theirs was the best work to be gotten for the price. They also photographed several new views for that sec- tion of the book. We wish to thank them for their very good workmanship, Page One Hundred Forty-two and their general willingness to cooperate. Two veteran companies on this campus, the Pontiac Engraving and Electrotype Co. of Chicago, and the Kutztown Publishing Co., were re-signed for our issue. The staff officials knew of no others which could replace the excellent quality of the product put out by these two plants. Because of superior designing technique, the Kingskraft Division of the Kingsport Press, Inc., Kingsport, Tennessee, was selected to provide us with our cover. Whatever success we have had in our taking of group pictures is all due to the untiring and never unwilling efforts of Dr. John V. Shankweiler.

Published thirty times from September until June the WEEKLY is continuing “Abreast of the Mod- ern March of Journalism.” Although published by the students entirely, the newspaper is not subject to censorship by administration or faculty officials and continues to print “all the news that’s fit.” During the past year, the twenty-sixth year of weekly publication, the WEEKLY again won prizes in intercollegiate competition by winning first prize in editorials, third prize in news and make-up, and honorable mention in advertising in the Fall con- test of the Intercollegiate Newspaper Association of the Middle Atlantic states. John Ammarell, editor this year, was elected president of the Middle At- lantic 1. N.

Originally organized as a loose student organiza- tion in 1925, the band had its first outside director when Mr. Soltys was chosen bandmaster nineteen years later. Since the fall of 1934, it has functioned as a semi-military body, using military-style car- dinal and gray uniforms and designating its of- ficers with military rankings. Equipment and uni- form stock, long a sore need, have been increased steadily, so that, now, the college is able to put on the field a band that ranks with any small college organization in the east. Activities for the band begin even before the opening of college, when members gather prior to the opening of classes to begin drills for the foot- ball season. Spectacular marching formations, coupled with well-grounded playing, add snap to the fall gridiron contests. The extensive program con- tinues throughout the winter and spring, with ap- pearances at the basketball games and two concerts before the student body in March and M ay. The second concert always proves a highlight of the season, since awards are made to members at that time. Freshmen receive a felt emblem in the form of a lyre, while second and third year men receive chenille letters. Gold charms are awarded to seniors for four years of service. The repertoire of the band during its concert sea- son includes a wide variety of compositions, run- ning from the light novelty numbers through the classics anti modern works. Among the numbers included in concerts this year were “Military Over- ture,” based on Haydn’s “Mil itary” Symphony; “Atlantis” suite, by Safianek ; “Hungarian Fan- tasia”, by Tobani ; a modern fantasy based on the theme, “London Bridge Is Falling Down” ; the overture to “11 Guarany”, by Gomez; a medley of Irving Berlin Waltzes; a novelty number, “The Three " Frees”; and Ethel Waters’ “Stormy Weath- er”. At the March concert the band introduced an arrangement of the Fight Song, made especially for the Muhlenberg College Band by Ray G. Wether- hold. DR. HAROLD K. MARKS Director Dr. Harold K. Marks was born at Emmaus, Pa., May 12, 1886. He was graduated from Allen- town High School in 1903, after which he entered Muhlenberg, receiving an A.B. degree in 1907. Born of a musical family he followed in the foot- steps of his father, C. A. Marks, Mus.D., and after receiving musical instruction from him, he went on to study piano under Albert Ross Parsons, of New York. While in New ork he undertook a course in organ under Organist R. Huntington Wood- man, of the First Presbyterian church, Brooklyn. Entering the University of Pennsylvania Dr. Marks took a course in M usical Theory under Hue A. Clarke, M us.D., and composition under Dr. H. Alexander Matthews. Dr. Marks was appointed Professor of Music at Muhlenberg in the year 1913. He received the de- gree of Doctor of Music from his Alma Mater in 1930. He organized and directed the Muhlenberg glee club, which, after the erection of the chapel, became the Muhlenberg Chapel Choir, and, through his work with these groups, he became widely known as a choral director. M any well known choral and organ numbers have been written by Dr. Marks, including Muhl- enberg’s Alma Mater. He has written numbers for the Chapel Choir, including Dawn And Desire , a number sung by the choir on all its trips, and Fair M uhlenberg. Having sung on several national-hook-up radio broadcasts and having presented concerts in many cities of Eastern Pennsylvania and adjoining states during the past several years, the Chapel Choir has achieved the distinction of being considered one of the finest small college male choruses in the East. During the past year the choir took part at each of the monthly afternoon vesper services held in the college chapel. Selections were also presented at both the Christmas and Lenten services held annually in the chapel with Cedar Crest college. The choir pre- sented a concert of its own, an annual affair held in connection with the Christmas tree lighting cere- mony on the campus in December, and took part in the Baccalaureate service in the chapel in June. The choir also presented Christmas selections in the Center Square of Allentown during the Yule- tide shopping season. J. ij ft tpcMJJ l L Page One Hundred Forty-eight Originally a glee club organized by students nearly forty years ago it was not until the appointment of Dr. H arold Marks as professor of music at Muhlen- berg that the organization came into prominence in the Eastern musical circles. For many years the Muhlenberg College Glee Club was hailed on its ex- tensive tours throughout the Eastern seaboard states by large audiences. The Glee Club presented on these tours a widely varied program including, be- sides choral numbers, soloists and even a comedy skit. This varied type of program was changed when, with the erection of the Egner-Hartzell Memorial Chapel on the campus in 1931, the Glee Club was reorganized into the Muhlenberg Chapel Choir. The musical repertoire was limited to sacred selections. The Chapel Choir was organized for the purpose of supplying all chapel services with musical accom- paniment and to serve the various Lutheran churches throughout the East with concerts of sacred music. Included in the numbers sung by the choir on its concert tours are sacred selections representing com- posers from the sixteenth century to modern times. Works by such men as Bach, Bortiansky, Tschai- kowski, Hayden, Handel, Beethoven, Muller, and Protheroe are sung by the choir. The choir, composed of approximately forty men, is vested in black gowns with cardinal yokes. A key is awarded to juniors or seniors who have served two years with the choir.

CLARKE WESCOE, President JOHN S. AMMARELL, Vice-president WILLIAM WARD, Secretary PAUL M. HUMANICK, Treasurer Robert Benfer John Fulmer William Deibert Jack Jupina Robert Lorish Government is an embodiment of power which functions through organization, is supreme in its power, and although directed from a center, extends its authority throughout the area of its jurisdiction. Under the Constitution of the Student Body adopted in February, 1939, the Student Council is the su- preme governing body of the campus. Under the new Constitution, the Council is elected by a democratic process entirely unlike that which preceded it. Nine members of the junior class are elected to the Council by a system of proportional representation through the Hare preferential ballot after unlimited nominations representing all con- ceivable groups on the campus. This system has been devised to eliminate control by factions and to represent a cross-section of student body opinion on the campus. The aim of the Student Council this year has been the securing of more perfect cooperation be- tween student body, faculty, and administration. Toward this end the Council appointed a committee of students to meet with faculty members for the ironing out of various problems, such as the over- abundance of term papers and the piling up of quizzes. Results of this effort have already been no- ticed. Through the Student Council all business on the campus is transacted. Funds from the student hodv treasury are allotted to campus organizations, which are required to submit their constitutions to the Council. Page One Hundred Fifty The Interfraternity Council fulfills the definite need on the campus for a coordinating influence be- tween the five social Greek letter groups. It formu- lates rules for rushing, pledging, and other common interests of the fraternities and administrates their execution. The first issue of the CIARLA saw the existence of two fraternities on the campus, Epsilon Deuteron chapter of Phi Gamma Delta, founded here in 1867 (now defunct), and Pennsylvania Alpha Iota chap- ter of Alpha Tau Omega, founded at Muhlenberg in 1881. It was not until the middle twenties that the need for an Interfraternitv Council was felt, and the present organization was inaugurated. As a step toward closer relations with the admin- istration of the college, this year the group met with alumni and the administration fraternity committee to devise plans for a revision of the rushing and pledging rules. The new system will be put into effect next fall. The Council awards a scholarship cup each semes- ter to the fraternity having the highest scholastic rating. This year a separate cup was offered for the pledges for the first time. Social highlight of the fraternity season was the Inter-fraternity Ball, held at the Lehigh Country Club to the music of Bud Rader during the Christ- mas vacation. Council PERSONNEL W.

Harry P. C. Cressman Rev. Russel W. Stine The Muhlenberg Christian Association, one of the oldest organizations on the campus, was at one time associated with the State Y. M. C. A., which is now replaced by the Student’s Christian Movement. ' This group consists of the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A., and the Student Volunteers. The M. C. A. has a loose relationship with these organizations, sends delegates to their conventions, and makes contribu- tions for the maintenance of their work. The M. C. A. comprehends a number of interest- ing activities in the course of the year in religious, educational, and social endeavor. These activities are under the guidance of Rev. Harry P. C. Cress- man and Rev. Russell Stine. The Association tries to help all students become better adapted to campus and community life by the publication of the stu- dents’ handbook, containing a wealth of information about campus affairs. ' This book is placed in the hands of every freshman on the opening day of college. " The social program of Freshman Week is planned and carried out by the M. C. A. Cabinet, thereby introducing new students to the upperclassmen and to the members of the faculty. There are special Friday evening social programs, tours through Allentown industrial plants and the General Harry C. Trexler game preserve, forum discussions, and assistance offered in conducting re- ligious programs and special chapel services. Delega- tions to student conferences are fostered. Regular church and Sunday School attendance are encour- aged. Page One Hundred Fifty-two Der Deutsche Verein is one of the oldest organ- izations on the campus and sprang up under the guiding hand of Dr. Barba in 1924. Various forms of entertainment such as singing, talks, and discus- sions — all in the German language — create a more friendly feeling toward the German people and their culture. This year the club was addressed by a German refugee, who spoke on conditions in his homeland. Another feature of the year was the second annual midnight hike. This consisted of a long tramp late at night to some pre-arranged destination where campfire and refreshment awaited. After much sing- ing, the group returned early in the morning. T he highlights of every German Club year are the annual Christmas party at which Dr. Reichard plays the part of Santa Claus, the Damenabend, and the Ausflug. It is the sincere hope of this club that the fine fellowship and spirit of Der Deutsche Verein may continue to grow at Muhlenberg.

Shankweiler Fifty years ago the pre-medical curriculum had not yet been established at Muhlenberg, and it was not until long after such a course was offered by the College that this organization was founded here in 1931 through the efforts of Dr. John V. Shank- weiler. Since then the club has grown to be one of the most important extra-curricular activities for the science men. Admission to the society is granted to sophomores with satisfactory scholastic standing who are enrolled in the pre-medical curriculum. To fulfill its purpose of acquainting its members with the various phases of the medical profession, speakers prominent in the several medical fields are invited to address the group at its bi-monthly meetings. Among the topics brought before the organization this year were “Arthritis,” “Abnormalities and Their Embryological Explanation,” “The Life of Dr. Harvey Cushing,” “Caesarean Operation,” and “Histerectomy.” Many of the talks were illustrated with moving pictures and lantern slides. At its annual banquet, to which all medical alumni are invited, the society makes an effort to obtain an outstanding speaker in some field of medicine. This year Dr. Betlive Bronk, professor of physiology ' at Cornell Medical College, addressed the gathering. As a part of its activities, the society makes trips to points of medical interest. This year the club spent a day at Hahnemann Medical College in Phila- delphia. Page One Hundred Fifty-four Through the efforts of the late Dr. Henry R. Mueller a group of pre-law students banded to- gether in February of 1933 to form an organization known as the Pre-law Club of Muhlenberg College. Later, upon the adoption of a constitution, the club was named the John Marshall Pre-law Club. Under the latter name the club has existed and has carried on its various functions. John Marshall Pre-Law Club PERSONNEL Among these varied activities which have become traditional on the activity roster of the club are talks and discussions with attorneys, toxicologists, and judges; joint symposiums with other clubs on and off the campus; trips to law schools and district courts; mock trials; and the annual banquet. The purpose of the organization is to foster stu- dent interest in legal affairs and to direct pre-law activities on the campus. Membership into the club is limited to sophomores and upperclassmen of good standing who are regularly matriculated in the Col- lege and who have a professional interest in law. An annual prize, the John Marshall Pre-law Club Award, is presented each year to that senior member of the club who, in the opinion of the faculty advisors, has shown greatest interest in the pre-legal activities.

Wilfred Steffy Lester Stoneback Edwin Wisser Robert Wuchter ADVISORS Rev. Harry P. C. Cressman Rev. Russel, W. Stine The Muhlenberg Pre-theological Club is the out- growth of a Christian fellowship which was started in 1921 by Dr. W. C. Schaeffer when he became pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Allentown. In the spring of each year Reverend Schaeffer in- vited all ministerial students of Muhlenberg to a banquet held in the Parish House of the Church; there were after-dinner speakers and the annual event was a challenge to the Christian manhood of the students. Phis practice was continued until 1933 when the Pre-theological Club was founded at the college. After the passing of Dr. John A. W. Haas, Presi- dent-emeritus, the college administration dedicated Dr. Haas’ study with its furniture and books to the use of the ministerial students. The title, John A. W. Haas Pre-theological Club, was then adopted. The club fosters the high ideals of Christian fel- lowship to which its numbers have dedicated their lives m the ministry of the gospel. One of the definite objectives of its members is to exert a Christian in- fluence on the campus. In the course of the year prominent church men address the meetings. Several trips also are scheduled. A visit is made to the Topton Orphans’ Home. In the spring the club goes to Philadelphia on an ob- servation tour of the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Mt. Airy. Page One Hundred Fifty-six The M ask and Dagger Club, an outgrowth of the Cue and Quill Club, enjoyed a rather spasmodic existence from the time of its reorganization in 1931 until 1935 when the club began to take longer strides yearly. Always trying to bring to its audience the type of entertainment to stimulate a finer apprecia- tion of the dramatic art, the organization has opened its doors of opportunity to all students of the col- lege. With the recent stage improvements and the promising outlook of the future for the club there is ample opportunity for any student to exercise his abilities in every phase of dramatics. Besides pro- ducing the official schedule of the club, this organ- ization aids other college organizations to stage their functions of the stage. Beginning the Fall schedule with Sutton Vane’s comedy-drama OUT WARD BOUND the Mask and Dagger Club again joined with the Chimes Club of Cedar Crest College to give a worthwhile and splendid performance. T he Assembly program in March initiated the freshmen into the arts of the stage by way of a little comedy-farce entitled REFUND, by Fritz Karinthy. This was a student-directed production and proved quite successful. T he final official production of the year was pre- sented on April third and fourth. At this time ARMS AND T HE MAN, a Bernard Shaw com- edy, was presented in three beautiful stage settings to an amazed and appreciative audience.

Hold- ing regular meetings during each school year, the association also spices its program with trips to vari- ous business concerns at nearby points. Thus is membership of benefit to those who are eligible to join. Valuable practical experiences are gained from these trips and, besides, a bit of the so- cial aspect is thereby introduced to the members at the same time. Membership is limited to those stu- dents who have a major or minor in Business Ad- ministration, Economics, and Sociology. The stated aim of the association is to further the interest of the student in his chosen held and this aim is followed out by the many trips taken and the interesting discussions held at the regular meetings. Generally, a speaker is invited to address the group and, after he has expressed himself, the floor is thrown open for student opinion. A traditional banquet is held annually at which time officers for the next t ear are elected. This year one of the more important trips taken was that one to N ew York City, in which city the Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank were inspected.

These were well attended by the stu- dent body and greatly enjoyed by all — but the fresh- men. They were impressive affairs with a darkened auditorium and only candles for illumination. With new and stricter regulations imposed and a stricter and more efficient system of trial and conviction, a very successful and profitable year was culminated. The work of the Freshmen Tribunal is not all pleasure however. With the segregation of the fresh- men in the West Hall it became necessary to provide some means of contact between the upper classmen and the newcomers. T his, and the instilling in the minds of the freshmen the traditions and ideals of Muhlenberg College, is the work of the Tribunal. Headed by a council member and directed by faculty member, William Ritter, this body is a truly representative body of Muhlenberg College. The effect and work of the Tribunal upon the freshmen and the rest of the student body is evident to all those who observe the changes upon the campus in the attitudes of the student bodv. Page One Hundred Sixty Organized in 1932 through the efforts of Pro- fessor Ephraim B. Everitt, coach of varsity debating, the Forensic Council has as its purpose the govern- ing, fostering, and encouraging of debating and ora- tory at Muhlenberg. Although no regular meetings are held, the activities of this group extend over the full college year. M embership in this organization is limited to those who have participated in at least one varsity debate or one oratorical contest. The senior manager of debate is the president of the group and the assistant manager acts as secretary-treasurer. Coaches of debate and oratory act as advisors. With the completion of the debate season the Council elects an honorary captain from the senior members of the squad. Forensic Council PERSONNEL JAMES E.

M embership is limited to fifteen. Each year five sophomores who have met the required qualifications are duly elected to membership and serve for the remainder of their college days. The first semester was a successful one for the Key which served during Freshman Week, Parents’ Day, and other home football games. Other occa- sions to be aided by the group are Community Night, Sub-freshman Day, and Alumni Day. LAUDENSLAGER TURNER WISSER Mathematics Club Because of a vast and increasing interest in the field of Science the Mathematics Club was re-or- ganized in 1 03 7 by Professors Deck and Koehler. 1 he purpose of this organization is to stimulate and promote interest in the study of higher mathe- matics and mathematical oddities. This goal is ac- complished by the participation of the students in discussions, lectures and illustrations, each member having his turn to express his own personal opinion. Among the many topics for discussion are the prob- lems of trisection of an angle by means of compass and straightedge, squaring of the circle, and the re- production of the cube. 1 he climax of the social activities of the club is the annual Christmas party at which time prizes are awarded those persons having the highest scores on mathematical teasers and puzzles. Membership is limited to upper classmen who have studied or are studying their second year of mathe- matics. PERSONNEL PAUL HUMANICK, President LkRO MECKLEY.

Watkins Webster Page One Hundred Sixty-four The present system of elections, introduced on the campus by George Howatt, ’40, was inaugurated in 1939 when the student body ratified a new consti- tution. As it is employed this system, Proportional Representation, is rather Complicated and needs a competent board to supervise its functioning. A temporary board was established in the spring of that year to manage the student council elections. Howatt was elected to the Council and the system was a success. In September, 1939, the first permanent election board was formed with seven P. R. experts as mem- bers and with the indomitable Howatt as chairman. The hoard officiated over all student elections dur- ing the ensuing year, not including those within in- dividual organizations, and the result was clean, honest, and accurate elections. The preferential ballot was used exclusively. By this device, when a single office is to be filled, the election of a majority candidate is assured, no mat- ter how many candidates have been nominated. In the spring of 1940, the board supervised another student council election and by means of the Hare system of Proportional Representation, the nine favorites on the campus were elected to office. Mr. Howatt had a passionate fondness for the new election system. Eager to disseminate his ideas, he presented them at the meeting of the Student Government Association, at Penn State College. In Howatt’s own words, “The response to the descrip- tion of the plan was gratifying.” Many of the dele- gations from the member schools requested copies of the constitution and the plan of elections.

Signing of Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra early in January culminated the work begun by the large committee headed bv John Jones early in November, and was the realization of their dream to obtain the biggest “name-band” ever to play at any Muhlenberg function. As if the world-famed trombone of the coal-region maestro was not enough to insure success, the Dorset crew included a star-spangled group of outstanding soloists and instrumentalists, which kept the crowd well entertained. Attractive Connie Haines and non- chalant Frank Sinatra offered the solo vocals, while the Pied Pipers, one of the most distinctive vocal groups appearing with any orchestra, added their own melodic and rhythmic interpretations of cur- rent tunes. Preceding intermission the orchestra played their special arrangement of the college Fight Song, with the dancers joining in on the vocals along with the Pied Pipers. A Tommy Dorsey treatment of the Alina Mater served as a fitting close to the gala affair. Dance programs were covered with white leather, embossed with the college seal, and were bound with a cardinal cord. Castle Gardens was attractively decorated with cardinal and gray streamers which formed a false ceiling over the entire length of the dance Boor, while fraternity banners added to the general festive spirit, since the Prom served as the opening of the first Winter Carnival week-end in the history of the college. Pep Committee PERSONNEL WILLIAM DEIBERT, Co-chairman JOHN FULMER, Co-chairman Foster Blair Paul Kidd Edgar Brown Alfred Pierce Herbert Dowd Frederick Roediger Brooke Shoemaker In the dismal football season of 1940 one of the few bright spots was the work of the Pep Commit- tee. With several experienced members of last year’s committee and an ample budget from the student body funds, the entire program moved smoothly and efficiently. The meetings included three smokers, the annual auditorium pep meeting, the pajama parade, and, the highspot of the year, the bonfire before the Lehigh game. An imposing array of local luminaries was engaged for the meetings. Most of the faculty and adminis- trative and coaching staffs of the college received an opportunity to display their oratorical talent at at least one of the pep meetings. Extra attractions in- cluded a magician and a musician. The high spots of the season were the pajama pa- rade — with the frosh in pajamas, a police escort, a caravan of cars, and the band and the bonfire. The bonfire — set off prematurely by those vandals across the valley, was still a huge success with ample re- freshments and a great many popular local speakers. In its dying embers the students perhaps found the urge to win. What was probably the grandest Senior Ball in Muhlenberg history was held on the evening of December 13 in the Americus Hotel to the music of Johnny Messner and his orchestra. More than 250 couples attended. Feature of the evening was the singing of Miss Jeanne D’Arcy, although she was ably supported bv the inimitable Professor Koleslaw and his toy piano, the trombone choir, and the three Jacks. It was felt by those seniors there that this affair indeed sur- passed their own Junior Prom of the year before. South American walnut programs were distrib- uted and were admired for their attractiveness.

M embership of this group is composed of those athletes who have won their varsity letter in any sport. Active members of the group are further awarded the Varsity “M” Club pin. Although the organization is athletic in nature, the club also sponsors social activities for its mem- bers. For the last few years the group has turned to dramatics in presenting a Varsity “M” Club show. The result of this activity has been an increase in the popularity and the prestige of the club.

Since the foundation of the Alpha Cast at Fairmont State College in 1925 by Paul F. Opp, the fraternity has grown so that today there are chapters scattered well over the United States and several in Can- ada. It aims to provide an honor society for those deserving men and women of college dramatics, and to extend a wider fellowship to those interested in the college theatre. Gamma Mu holds as a goal for the members of the dramatic club at Muhlenberg College a position attained only by success and dis- tinction. The high standards set up by the national council make membership extremely limited. Inherent in this feature is the basic principle of the fraternity — to the deserving worker go the coveted laurels. The past several years have seen Gamma Mu climbing toward the top. This year the group has provided a student director for the Freshman play, and sponsored a play writing contest. Its members have also directed or aided in some way in several community func- tions from time to time. personnel FRA TRES IN A A C UL TA TE Kingsbury U5adger Perry Kendig F RAT RES IN C JOHN ZIMMI ROBERT ALBEE] WILMER CR OLLEGIO RIM AN, Director Business Manager IAN, Prompter WILLIAM SOMER ILLE, Stage Manager WILLI AM SIU ERT , G uard Tau Kappa Alpha PERSONNEL FRATRES IN Dr. J.

The local chapter was organized in 1926 through the efforts of Arthur T. Gellespie, former coach of debating, and was granted in recognition of Muhlenberg’s singular suc- cess in the various fields of forensic activity. Members are elected to the fraternity on the basis of excellence in debating, oratory, and other forms of public speaking. This fraternity is one of the oldest and most outstanding of forensic organizations in the country. Founded in 1908, it now has a chapter in some university of every state. Lowell Thomas is national honorary presi- dent and the society’s publication is The Speaker. This year the society sent delegates to the national convention in Washington, D. C. where, for the first time in the history of Muhlenberg, the College won superior hon- ors. In April the local chapter acted as host to the Mid-Eastern District Convention of the fraternity. Some thirty colleges from five different states were represented. Page One Hundred Seventy-four wma ' file local chapter of Phi Sigma Iota, Lambda, was instituted on the campus in 1928 and has been proud to be one organization on the campus to uphold its purposes. In- cluded among the latter are recognition of excellence in the Romance languages, re- search in this held, and the promotion of friendly relations between the l n i ted States and France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, and Ru- mania. Although these purposes are foremost in the minds of the members especially at meet- ing times, the group does sponsor social ac- tivities during the year. Prominent among these are the annual picnic and the annual banquet, both held in the spring of the year. Senior and faculty members of the organ- ization provide research essays at each meet- ing. These papers are first read, then discussed by all those in attendance. Once in every three years delegates are sent to take part in the national convention of Phi Sigma Iota.

Boyer the chapter has grown steadi- ly until its effect is felt widely on the campus. The Muhlenberg Psi Chapter was introduced on the campus in 1927 and has been progress- ing ever since. Among the activities sponsored by the chapter this year was a survey of the news absorbed by local people of all classes in the forms of radio, movies, and newspapers. This is part of a national survey now being con- ducted. Further activities will include the an- nual banquet and several other affairs now un- der contemplation. With the program and purpose of the fra- ternity being to promote the cause of educa- tion by training and instilling in embryo teachers the high moral and ethical standards of this ancient and honored profession, the work of Kappa Phi Kappa is highly impor- tant to the United States and the welfare of future generations of citizens whose lives will be molded by the members of this organiza- tion. Page One Flundred Seventy-six Phi Alpha Theta Phi Alpha Theta, founded in 1921 at the l diversity of Arkansas, through the initia- tive of Dr. Andrew N. Cleven. has grown to a position of great importance in the national honorary fraternity field. It has spread until it now has twenty-five chapters in fifteen states. This national organization is represented on the Muhlenberg campus by the Kappa chapter founded by the late Dr. Henry R. Mueller in 1929. The group has maintained a high position on the campus through its ad- herence to the requirement of a high standard of scholarship for membership. Monthly meetings consist of talks and dis- cussions pertinent to national and interna- tional present day affairs. The expressions of opinions upon the development of these af- fairs has this year been interesting because of their rapidly changing character. This year the fraternity sent a delegation to represent Japan at the Model League of Nations held at Lehigh Lniversity. NNEL I)r. Victo ULTATE Swain Johnson Prof. Richard E.

Russell Stine, professor of philoso- phy at Muhlenberg, blossomed into a na- tional organization with chapters in five other colleges. A fine spirit of unity is realized as result of many joint meetings with other chapters throughout the year. The chapters of Muhl- enberg and Cedar Crest met in the beginning of the year for a joint initiation. In January our chapter was host to Cedar Crest and Moravian members, after having been guests of Cedar Crest the month before. In April our Alpha chapter was honored as the host chapter for the annual national convention, which this year was held in the Hotel Tray- lor, Allentown. The Alpha chapter meets bi-weekly at the home of Professor Stine where papers and talks on subjects of philosophical interest are presented by guest speakers and members. Philosophy of American Democracy, the na- ture of Matter and Truth, the philosophies of Kant, James, Lin Yutang, and other mod- ern thinkers were some of the subjects pre- sented and discussed during the year. Page One Hundred Seventy-eight Eta Sigma Phi Classics students of both the Gniversity of Chicago merged with those of Northwestern in 1924 to foi m the national honorary classi- cal languages fraternity, Eta Sigma Phi. The local Muhlenberg chapter, Alpha Rho, fol- lowed in 1931. As is the case with most such societies, so- cial functions have become an unalienable part of Eta Sigma Phi. One of the more interest- ing was a joint dance held with Cedar Crest, although a Christmas party held at Dr. Reich- ard’s home was well appreciated. At this lat- ter affair Latin and Greek was the language of those attending. The purpose of Eta Sigma Phi is to en- courage interest in the study of the classics in order to have the beauty anti language of the Greek tradition appreciated. Quizzes, as well as discussions of many kinds, also stimu- late the following out of this purpose. Alpha Rho is always represented at na- tional conventions of the fraternity and it is its custom to present a medal to the outstand- ing classics student in Allentown High School. The motto of the local chapter is “The so- ciety of those who love the Greek tradition.” PERSONNEL FRA TRE Dr. R Dr. Eijward J IN F A CULT A TE obert (|. Horn .

Since that time, its members have con- tinued to strive to maintain the high prin- ciples which have been established after twenty-seven years of distinguished achieve- ments. The purposes of Omicron Delta Kap- pa are : To recognize men who have attained a high standard of efficiency in collegiate activ- ities and to inspire others to strive for simi- lar conspicuous attainments; To bring together the most representative men in all phases of collegiate life anti thus to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution; To bring together members of the faculty and student body of the institution on a basis of mutual interest and understanding. Omicron Delta Kappa recognizes eminence in five phases of campus life: scholarship, athletics, social and religious activities, pub- lications, and cultural activities. Its five ideals are character, recognition, opportunity, in- spiration, and loyalty. Five indispensable qualifications for membership are integrity, fellowship, humility, courage, and consecra- tion to a great purpose. Page One Hundred Eighty OCLa J ra t entitle 5 Alpha Tau Omega Alpha Tau Omega was founded on Sep- tember 1 1, 1865 at Richmond, Virginia. The first chapter was located at Virginia Military Institute. Installed at Muhlenberg in 1881, it was tbe first social fraternity on this cam- pus. An outstanding event for the local chapter occurred last June when the “37” Biennial Congress was held at French Lick, Indiana. Brothers Ray Turner and George Hawkins were delegates to this conclave, a most im- pressive affair. In rushing this past fall, the local chapter enjoyed its most successful year ever. No less than twenty-one underclassmen chose to pledge with Pennsylvania Alpha Iota of Al- pha Tau Omega. On March 15 sixteen of the above number were duly initiated into active membership. Hie first Muhlenberg Carnival week-end, held in conjunction with the Junior Prom, was a huge success. At this time the entire student body was invited to Alpha Tau Omega’s Sat- urday night open house. It was somewhat an unprecedented idea, but it was met with favor from all sides. In the January elections the following were put into office: W. Clarke Wescoe, Worthy Master; John R. Taylor, Worthy Chaplain; George M. Sieger, Worthy Keeper of the Exchequer; Raymond L. Turner, Worthy Keeper of the Annals; E. Clyde Seaman, Worthy Scribe; Robert E. Lorish, Worthy Esher; and Thomas Y. Bryan, Worthy Sen- tinel.

Today it ranks eighteenth in size among a total of sixty-odd American college Greek- letter societies. Phi Kappa Tau is the second American college fraternity to construct a building devoted exclusively to the adminis- trative and executive work of the national organization. Eta Chapter was installed at Muhlenberg in 1917. Before entering into Phi Kappa Tau the local chapter was known as Alpha Sigma. Eta has the distinction of being the first fra- ternity on the Muhlenberg Campus and the first chapter in the national organization to own its own house. Included among Eta’s 17 pledges this year were Harold H. Helfrich and David P. Jax- heimer, sons of charter members at Eta. On our return to the campus in September we were disheartened to hear of the death of Brother Jack Griffiths in the Hercules Pow- der Plant explosion. Jack ' s parents presented the chapter with a picture in his memory. Jack will be remembered as one of Eta’s main- stays in securing runner-up position in the Intramurals. During the last week in August, Brothers Shankweiler, Fulmer, Schmoyer, and Keim attended the 28th. National Convention held at French Eick, Indiana. At French Eick Eta was presented with a plaque for cooperating best with the central office. The annual Founder’s Day banquet was held at Philadelphia on March 15 with all the eastern chapters present. This joint Founder’s Day banquet proved to be a huge success. On December 18, 1940 the brothers held a party at the chapter house for underpriv- ileged children. They were given a nourish- ing turkey dinner, sweaters, trousers, stock- ings, and other useful items. Everyone of the boys left with a thankful smile on his face. Another outstanding affair on the Phi Kappa Tau social calendar was the annual Spring Formal.

So had Sig- ma Phi Epsilon on this campus. From a single sprig, many roots which support it may spring and in the same manner the fraternities spring up about a college to support it. This group had its beginning in the “Druid Club” which was organized in 1925. In 1928 the club was strong enough to go national as the Delta Beta Chapter of Theta Upsilon Omega fraternity. In 1938, I beta Upsilon Omega merged with Sigma Phi Epsilon; and thus, the group became the Pennsylvania lota Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon. The officers at present are: Francis Boyer, President; Richard Worsley, Vice-president; Woodrow W. W. Guth, Comptroller; and Benjamin Lewis, Secretary. The National Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsi- lon has its Central Offices in Richmond, Vir- ginia, the home of Richmond University where the fraternity came into being Novem- ber 1, 1901. The National fraternity, one of the ten strongest in the country, is com- prised of seventy-seven chapters scattered from coast to coast. The goal of the frater- nity is scholarship, distinction, and fellow- ship. It is the ambition of each individual chapter to support determinedly this program to the utmost of its ability. With these goals in mind, the local chap- ter works to attain them and yet finds time to have a little enjoyment out of college life in the form of its social activities which are ever increasing. Besides cooperating in the activities and functions of the school, the chapter each year has its own parties and dances. The high-spot of the year for each “Sig Ep” is the Spring Formal which is held in April.

However, it was only through the untiring efforts of the alumni of Theta Kappa Nu, which merged with Lambda Chi in 1939, of the forty-three-year-old Delta Theta, and of the Philos Club, that this was made possible. Formal installation of the Muhlenberg Chapter as the one hundred and sixth Chap- ter of Lambda Chi Alpha took place during Home-coming Week-end, October 10 and 1 1, at which time many of the Chapter’s 800 af- filiated alumni visited the house. The feature event of the weekend was a banquet held at the Chapter house, which was attended not only by many national officers of the frater- nity, but also by many college representatives, and alumni. With the formalities of charter acquisition having been completed, a succession of social events began with a Pledge Dance which was held on October 25. This was followed by a Victory Dance to celebrate the Mules’ tri- umph over Lehigh l niversity. The Saturday following the Senior Ball was the date of another dance, at which members of the Le- high Chapter of Lambda Chi were our guests. The round of social events was clim- axed by the Spring Formal, the high spot of our last week-end house party of the year.

Plotnick M arvin Shaffer rd f arus Alpha Nu chapter of Phi Epsilon Pi was installed on the Muhlenberg campus on Feb- ruary 6, 1932, as a result of the assimilation of the Gamma chapter of Sigma Lambda Pi, then six years old on this campus. The national fraternity received its start at the College of the City of New York on November 23, 1904, when seven men banded together to preserve a friendship. Since then it has grown to include thirty-one active chap- ters, with five thousand members. The beginning of this year found only one active member in the local chapter. Through the efforts of interested students and loyal alumni, the organization was aroused from its lethargy and once more asserted itself by initiating twelve men in December. Five more were added in February. Revitalization has seen tangible progress toward the securing of a chapter house and the re-establishment of Alpha Nu chapter as a potent factor in the national chapter and on the local campus. Officers for the year have been the follow- ing: Superior, Marvin Shaffer; Vice-superi- or, Bernard Kaplan; Secretary, Harold Krev- sky; Treasurer, Howard Yarus; and Chap- lain, Milton Donin. Page One Hundred Ninety i Sprint : 1940 With the advent of April, the ordinarily somnolent social committee produced a mild furore with what the WEEKLY termed a “new and different idea in social life.” On the sixth of the month the student body was presented with the crsammlung (a name borrowed from the German and gven back for good on April 7), a raucous brawl featuring the oompah rhythms of Fen- stermacher ' s band. Dressed in dungarees, overalls, pa- jamas and other usual classroom attire, the students and their attachees scattered about the expansive Empire Ballroom and danced and necked for four hours. The whole idea seemed to meet with popular approval. As expressed in the inimitable phraseology of Bill Pfiel, the consensus was that “It was one of the best affairs they ever had here.” This Germanic attempt at merriment was preceded on April 5 by a rather orthodox Inter-fraternity Ball, fea- turing the orchestra of Charlie Manners, a lad who, the WEEKLY reported, had been signed by NBC to do a series of broadcasts, but whom no one has heard of since. This formal hop was held at the Woman’s Club, so please be stifled, you scandal mongers. In fact it was the most conservative inter-Frat dance since the days of Nick Borelli (you ' ll hear more about him). The debate team, whose members annually take about a week of legalized loafing to Haunt their oratorical powers in intersectional arguments, organized a four-day post season tour through Maryland and Virginia. High- light of the trip was an attempt at suicide by one of the judges when he learned he would have to listen to Dan Petruzzi and Bill Moser. Things turned out all right, however, for the attempt was not successful and instead of a seat on the debate platform, the judge was given a nice quiet room in a hospital. The eminent impressario, Nelson Graham, surpassed his performance as a one-man Luftwaffe in the Lafayette football game the previous October when he presented the college’s first variety show, the Gay Nineties. Having very little talent to work with Graham packed the sci. aud. on two successive nights with a musical that had a spontaneity and a vitality heretofore absent in student histrionics the show featured a multiplicity of novelties most of which were dreamed up by Nelse himself the dancing of Perry Scott Ditchy Kaufman and their Bal- lerine and it served to introduce the new collegiate dance band now dormant Marty Fels and his Varsity Vaga- bonds. (Reviewer’s Note: Dear editor, please punctiate this.) In the April 12 issue of the WEEKLY appeared a quaint essay by Jimmy Brown, diminutive wrestling cap- tain, entitled “ ' Fell me — Is it Love?” Student reaction to the gem was rather unanimous and young Brown decided to stick to wrestling. The WEEKLY big guns sojourned to Bethlehem for the semi-annual I.N.A. convention and came back with several hangovers, and a first place in news. The local delegation took an active part in the political conniving that is a part of the convention with the result that John “Boy, Am I Busy!” Ammarell was elected president of the association for the ensuing year. “She Loves Me Not”, a noisy farce about supposed college life, a chorus girl, and communism was the Mask and Dagger’s spring presentation. This vehicle served to display the limited staging abilities of the club’s tech- nicians and the versatility and inability to remember lines of the girls who are employed as secretaries by the col- lege. Andy Wood filled well the role and the tights of the chorus girl. Susie Mohn looked lovely. The rest of the cast maneuvered in and out of the complicated set and spouted any lines that they could remember. Brooklyn Joe Roediger, Jack Taylor, and Henry Shamai showed sparks of personality. For the rest it might have been better if the gun that was shot in the first act had been loaded. Bill Ritter’s annual winter orgy, intramural basketball, drew to a belated close with Clark Diefen (you finish it ) ’s Celtics and the Delta Theta heavyweights in a tie for Hrst place. As a referee, Mr. Ritter is hardly a strict constructionist; he will not even consider blowing the whistle at anything short of a broken arm. However, some of the more sturdily constructed boys managed to stick it out for the whole season. Bob Reber, a Celtic, led the league in scoring with 86 points, followed by Lou “Feed it to me, fellas” DeRosa, and Augustus Minifri, representing the Delts and Celts respectively. As the whip-handling instructors drove us well into April, Professor Stine and his Alpha Kappa Alpha con- gregation were still doing their best to save the world from whatever the world ought to be saved from. Dis- cussing such soul-shattering topics as “Pacifism and La- bor”, “Philosophy of Democracy”, and “The Ethics of Pacifism”, the AKA’ers convened, forumed, and dis- cussed — with the final result that Prof. Stine was elected National President of the frat. In other fraternal activity, John Metzger, the boy ora- tor from South Williamsport, breezed quietly into the Page One Hundred Ninety-two o e v ear presidency of the district organization of 22 chapters of Tau Kappa Alpha. For Metzger, the college ' s number one larynx, and for the rest of the orators, debaters, and forensics, it climaxed a very active and verbose year. Mahlon Voluminous Hellerich was named valedictorian of the senior class, and Paid Nicholas made a virtual escape from anonymity to take second place in the schol- astic standings. A new record was established on the campus on April 28 when Slim, the genial chef in the commons received his 5000th complaint from among the exclusive clientele who ate in his joint. “Only 2000 more and I’ll beat ‘Tobacco Road’ said Slim as he carved the 5000th notch in the bone he had been using to make soup for the last year and a half. Bill Ward, avowed pre-ministerial student, and Burling- ton “Late-for-breakfast” Latshaw were elected head- waiters in the house of malnutrition, succeding the re- tiring caterers, Messrs. Benedick and Touhsaent. In an attempt to make it very difficult for the election board, the student body nominated virtually every junior and his brother for student council. During the year there had been a little intramural friction in student politics but the active council smoothed most of it over by grant- ing a $.50 subsidy to every member of the student body. Now if we could only do something about getting back that breakage fee! The college band, that cardinal-and-gray dream that has often left campus visitors with the impression that somebody washes dishes in the band hall, finished up its year by scoring what Albert Hofammann termed a “direct hit” in their annual spring concert. According to Hof- ammann, our original aesthete, “Phrasing was distinct . . . There was an amazing variety of nuancing . . . and . . . dynamic control in the percussion section. " Which nobody can deny. Dick Weidner, ace jive-man for the WCBA-WSAN Little Symphony Orch., contributed a rather sensational cornet solo with his own arrangement of a modern work. There was a modern rhapsody, “Head- lines”, and some “give it all you got” in Sibelius’ “Fin- landia " . And they distributed chapel slips so there were many students in attendance. Clarke Wescoe, dynamic frat head, was elected pres- ident of the student body by a rather comfortable ma- jority. Messrs. Ammarell, Ward, and Humanick were chosen to assist him in the other executive posts, and Fulmer, Lorish, Be the council. From a hustli John Umlauf and Berna funds director and cor class of 1940.

In their ring-the-bell-and-stick- a-name-up ceremony Bob Lorish, Paul Humanick, Bill Ward, and Dick Lehne, re- spected pillars of the junior class, were selected for mem- bership, and paid the twenty. After Pres. Diefenderfer had turned the gavel over to his worthy successor, Clarke Wescoe, the cream of stud- ent officialdom adjourned to Castle Gardens and joined the common people in a whiz-bang student body dance. Charlie Manners, leading what he cleverly called his lie dc France orchestra, whose two principal attributes were unlimited corn and an extraordinary press agent, supplied the dance accompaniment. The various spring sport varsities had considerable success. John “Pride of Oakmont” Shankweiler led his “netsters” (this vocabulary gem borrowed with due ap- preciation from the WEEKLY) through an extraordin- arily successful season; they lost but one match to a rather vigorous Lehigh crowd. But they went through the rest of the opposition like manure. Coach A1 McGall directed the track team over a rather mediocre season. Most promising was a streaky pair of frosh, Art Hill and John Psiaki, who usually had all their own way in the distance races. The baseball team produced plenty of runs, hits, and errors.

Fall Looking like a cross-section of the odd-lots division of the live stock market, five hundred bedraggled and reluc- tant enrollees returned to the popular Allentown intellec- tual abattoir around the middle of September. There were a few changes in the plant and personnel but the ol’ col- lege spirit — that of finding fault with everything — still prevailed. The faculty, our collection of hyper and super intelli- gent, had been transformed a bit. Captain Rollie Hart- man, the workhorse of the economics department had been called to army duty for a year and it took four men to assume the military man ' s classes. 1 hese included Don- ald Gordon Carpenter, who took over the accounting class, and Roy Smeltzer, who metes out the principles of insurance three times a week. Robert McClurkin was re- cruited to take the place of Thomas Kennedy, and Wil- liam Wilbur became the jovial new history instructor. Enlarging the biology department was Donald Shay, a blond adonis from the University of Maryland. John S. Davidson assumed management of the library. Maturing rapidly, Charles S. Garrettson, alumni sec’y, gave up his title of number one glamour-boy of the ad- ministration to Ned Keiter, or the trustees’ gift to the coeds. Mr. Tony Jagnesak accepted charge of the college band and promised to do something with the organiza- tion. But the whole campus doubted it. The whole thing was too far gone. The administration granted teaching fellowships to Walter Reinart, Clifford Klick, and A1 Simpson, three favored alumni. The maroon-betouseled Simpson was also given charge of the Freshman football team. He was assisted by the ever-popular and ever-overweight Nelson Graham, who worked with the backfield and by the end of the season had even the scrub managers throwing per- fect passes. Into the commons came a new dietician, Ida Mackin, and two new cooks. This new administration introduced better food in a limited supply, and more friction and , tft t ' Biiiflfmorjjw 3, KnliuOVifiltli 1 1 Jjnp-rowmients, upper-class n?ed and yu rnished , JKe pipes of the in place, yd B ir Fink got a new ' dissatisfaction -iiinui ! nii- pri minfl ' had seen since the Nicl Bore | e Among the ® dormitories were pi organ were put bal hat. But the assenroly programs low level. Continuing in their policy of lfaMMST the frosii, Hie administration appointed its quota of proctors to help the first year men with their studies, to tell them about the birds and the bees, and to tuck them in at night. Huraan- ick, Frounfelker, Clappermouth Diefenderfer, and New- pher were reappointed. Messrs. Metzger, Candalino, Dowd ; and Roediger made their debut in the clothesline circuit. The new star in fraternity row was Lambda Chi Alpha, formed by a group of interested students and the merging of the alumni of Delta Theta, Theta Kappa Nu, and the Philos Club, which names meant very little to any of us. John “Geeze ain ' t I active, though” Ammarell was elected president of the organization, made up of a col- lection of flotsam and jetsam from among the dormitory and town students. They moved into 407 N. 23rd St., the house vacated by the Sig Ep paint slingers, and enacted their most potent appeal to popular favor when they signed up Edward ‘ ' Bud” Bossick, football ace extraordin- ary. The varsity football team, which the WEEKLY dex- trously termed the “Julianmen” journeyed to Temple for rhe second game of the season. After duly noting our 7-0 defeat at the hands of Upsala in the opening game, Temple Coach Ray Morrison was quoted as saying that “Muhlenberg won ' t be a picnic for Temple Friday night.” Mr. Morrison, venerable exponent of razzle-dazzle, couldn ' t have been further wrong. For the Owls had virtually no opposition in rolling up a 64-7 score. In fact the rather inexperienced locals looked so bad that one Philadelphia sports writer suggested that the few boys who showed enough spirit to stay in the stands and watch the game right up to the end should have been in uniform. Personally, your reviewer doubts that these boys could have done any better, but you must admit it was a constructive suggestion. The four fraternities began their annual " Prove-to- the-f reshmen-that-we’re-the-best-f rat-on-the-campus” cam- paign before the first year men knew the difference be- pen a jivatritulation book - apt! ajoursar.

Tfnj ullment teachet if v high of 546 and the walls o fftTbuiKmig «ere bulging. The social calendar started with a poof when the student body sponsored the Annual Homecoming Dance, an informal gathering in the local armory. In view of the rapidly expanding de- fense program, it seems unlikely that the armory will be available for any future terpsichorean encounters, and nobody will be sorry. That is, nobody except Poof Moore and his orchestra, most of whose voluminous corn was lost among the rafters of the military dance palace. The student-faculty relations committee held its first meeting early in October. The object of this committee is to achieve closer cooperation and understanding be- tween the two groups. For example, if the students favor two-hour exams and the faculty favors three-hour exams, the student-faculty relations committee will meet and dis- cuss the question; and they will decide that we shall have three-hour exams. While a majority of the students became well settled in a lecture, recitation, and assignment rut, Jack Minogue and Ray Moats, both of whom handle a tennis racket with considerable dexterity, traveled southward to take part in the Middle Atlantic tournament. Playing rather bril- liant tennis, they fought their way through formidable opposition into the semi-finals where they were picked off by the defending champions. Doting parents had their annual opportunity to dote on October 26, a day uniquely labeled Parents Day. Quite an assemblage crowded on the campus, waited patiently through tree-planting and dedication exercises, and then watched the football confederates break a five game los- ing streak with a substantial win over Ursinus. All the mothers attending received a big yellow chrysanthemum with the compliments of the college. The Women’s Auxiliary, that active organization of women who are always finding new ways of helping and contributing to the college, celebrated their twenty-fifth anniversary. Under the guidance of their president, Mrs. Dewey Fuller, the group held ceremonies in the college chapel. Dr. E. P. Pfatteicher, number one Pennsylvania Lutheran, was the main speaker of the day. Miss Vera Weikel breezed into the science auditorium for an assembly program late in October. As critic Hof- ammann said, “Miss Weikel is of a beautiful body”, and this, combined with an extremely pleasing voice, made for the first appreciable assembly of the year, miles ahead of that array of professional lecturers that the assembly committee insists on tossing at us. Miss Weikel dashed through generous portions of Brahms, Debussy, and Wats and reached her peak with a well-rendered French group. It was an anti-climax when she told the boys that they were the toughest audience she had ever faced. The tolerated though ignored governing body of the school, the student council, had a busy autumn. It seemed to them that they were not making the proper impression on the campus. " Let’s enact some legislation,” one of the members sug- gested. " O. K., but what?”, replied another, “there is nothing important to legislate.” “That doesn’t matter " , the first answered, “we can contribute a few petty regulations and make them look important. " Although there had been no trouble, no complaints, and no inconvenience, the council passed a law that if any organization desired to use one of the college rooms for a meeting it had to get a permit signed by all the admin- istration and the board of trustees, three months before the assigned date. Everybody ignored this one. Their second try was an ordinance about the bulletin board — size of notices, and position on the board. Nobody paid any attention to this one either and everybody was happy. The council sat back happily. It had legislated. It convened again later in the year — to have its picture taken. Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities padded its 1940 line-up considerably in an attempt to increase sales of their book on the campus. Eleven men from the senior class were chosen to be listed in the galaxy of ace collegians and it was hoped by the publishers that they would all buy a book to show ' their friends what bright boys they are. Clarke Wescoe, who had lassoed more honors than anyone on the campus since Nick Borelli, added this one to his assortment along with classmates Frounfelker, Benfer, Humanick, Lehne, Hofammann, " Lots-to-do” Ammarell, Ward, Lorish, Ful- mer, and Hellerich. In an effort to stimulate a spark of enthusiasm into the lackadaisical student body, the indefatigable pep committee organized a bonfire. The idea was to collect an assortment of rags, textbooks, furniture, and other combustibles, heap them in a pile and set a match to them the night before the Lehigh game. But the resource- ful Bethlehem boys had other ideas; they paid us a visit late in the afternoon and set a tidy blaze to the monu- ment. The band, whose proficiency at fire-fighting is on a par with their musicianship, ambled over and did their best to retard the progress of the blaze, and to salvage a portion of the pile. Everything, they thought, was under control and they adjourned for dinner. But some smould- ering embers waxed potent again, and set the fire off prematurely. And just to rub it in, the Lehigh contingent returned in the evening to bring down the goal posts. Showing incredible taste, the assembly committee rang the bell twice in a row with its Thursday morning orgies. The first was a series of impressions on characters from the works of Dickens by a gentleman named Armitage, who had a clever line of patter and ran the gamut of facial expressions. The second presented a cello, flute, and harp trio from Curtis Institute. Three attractive girls played works of Gluck, Ravel, and others with consider- able technique, and everybody had a fine time — just as in the old days of Nick Borelli. After cutting down expenses all fall, the WEEKLY was able to finance a trip for six of their leading affiliates to the semi-annual debauch and convention held on the F. M. campus. Facing a dearth of competition, the papers from Bucknell, Gettysburg, F. M., and Muhl- enberg usually divide the awards and this year was no exception. However, the WEEKLY did not fare too well in the drawing of lots by the judges to see who would take the cups, so we had to be content with a first prize in editorials, a third in news, and a bevy of " favorable comments”. There are so few plays produced on the campus that seldom is one of them termed a “flop”. Probably the nearest thing to this classification in several years was the joint Mask and Dagger-Chimes Club production of Sutton Vane’s “Outward Bound " . The stage crew con- tributed a striking set. The cast was adequate. But the show just didn ' t click. The student body received it coldly, commended the Mask and Dagger on a bold at- tempt. The whole scope of the play was embodied in a fragment of dialogue in the first scene of the third act when Ann (as played by shapely Jean Handwerk) pointed to Henry (Art Watson) and said: “He speaks for both of us”. Whereupon Henry re- joined with: “We have nothing to say " . As Scrubby, the bartender, amiable Claude Dierolf was mediocre. After the play closed on Friday night, the freshman class made its debut into organized society with a sprightly dance held in the slaughterhouse in the base- ment of the north wing of West Hall. An orchestra called the Commodores contributed what they insisted was music. Paul Kidd, president of this area of the Lutheran Stud- ents Assn., and his compatriots on the campus were host to a troop of collegians from a dozen neighboring col- leges at a conclave on November 24. Despite a dinner in the commons, the group spent an enjoyable day. The whole student body was envious of those lucky select few in the math club who were fortunate to hear the reading of a paper by Harold Euker on “Quadratrix and Trisection”. Wow ! IV inter The seniors held their annual patent leather classic in the Americus Hotel Ballroom (bar attached) with John Messner and his orchestra on the stand. Jeanne “I’m sorry, fellows, but that gentleman whistled first” D Arcy sang a few suggestive sagas, Professor Kole- slaw played the toy piano, and Messr. Messner an- nounced the proceedings with a decided nasal twang. Mitzi Bruen, with whom your raconteur had a date in Page Two Hundred his freshman year, attended with committeeman George Sieger, thereby being photographed with the committee. She looked lovely. (See picture of senior ball commit- tee, page 169. Mitzi is standing extreme left). The debate season opened with a fiasco (jargon) be- tween John Downie and Lee Snyder, on our side, and Lvdia Greenbaum and Margaret Maupin from Bucknell. The boys, who were in tuxedos, didn’t seem to care much about the question, and the girls obviously didn ' t know anything about it. Nevertheless, everybody had a fine time except Mr. Downie, on whose name the WEEKLY perpetrated a horrible orthographical error. Furious, the Irishman responded with a scathing letter which appeared in the publication, and was the best bit of composition that has been in the paper since Nick Borelli’s junior year. Jefferson Frederick, elongated and amiable sophomore was the first to win his pilot’s license under what was cleverly called the C. A. A. program. Clarence Percival Bisset, a rather well-constructed and pile-driving fullback, was elected to captain the football team the following fall. A good leader, square sport, and a candidate for the varsity next year, Bisset succeeded Lenny Scott to the captaincy. We had our usual allot- ment of players on the usual assortment of “all” teams that appear at the end of each season. Prominent among those mentioned were linemen Scott, Wolfe, and Harayda and backs Gorg one and Bossick. Although the Oakmont boys play an extraordinary brand of tennis, they sponsor rather aromatic movies. In order to raise money for a proposed trip to the south the following spring, the boys sold tickets to a gem called " Northwest Mounted Police”, playing at one of the local cinema houses, name supplietl on request. The only fea- ture of the picture worth remembering was scantily-clad Paulette Goddard saying, “Son-a-me-gun, Ronny, I love you so turribly much”. Frankly, your reviewer was pal- pitating. And the tennis team made just oodles of money. The Sophomore class made their bid to break away from the usual run of student body dances, socials, and what-not, and held a dance of their own. It was called the Mardi Gras. Hereafter, the sophomores will stick to conventions. For the expansive prep school gym was filled with seventeen (count ’em) couples, among whom were Herb Dowd and Kay Hunsberger in shorts. Kav looked cute. Dowd just looked. One of the class members, Jack Snauffer, snaked any potential profits by getting paid for playing what was tactfully termed dance music. For the December 12 assembly, the committee had signed up a baritone named Perkins. He put in his ap- pearance ; but his accompanist, who had played with Mr. Perkins before and was acquainted with his abilities, had pity on the college boys and quite conveniently missed the train. Trouper that he was, Perkins did deliver three stock selections, then turned the program over to our own virtuoso, AI Hofammann who took over on the piano and dashed off some excellent Rachmaninoff and Liszt. Thus, what gave promise of being a rather dull Thurs- day turned out to be one of the best assemblies of the year. I he ARCADE, a true turkey in its own right, appeared on the campus just before Christmas. In its pre-publica- tion come-ons, it was said to “contain 32 pages on the style of CORONET " . To date, nobody has found any resemblance between the ARCADE and CORONET, but it is rumored that one freshman is going to write his English research paper on this topic. The mag contained some gallant attempts at literary excellence. Prominent was the poetry of ace aesthete, Al Hofammann, whose “Heigh-Ho the Jagwar” was being quoted from 23rd to 28th and from Liberty to Chew. Among the works included were a conventionally metered sonnet by Art Hill, who, for his work, was given the title “Poet Nauseate " ; a trashy story of dance bands, dull dialogue and far-fetched plot by Wilmer Cressman ; a neatly turned ballad by Al Sensenbach ; and one of Torn Meredith’s airplane stories (if you’ve read one, you’ve read them all) which always include a girl named Marie. This 32-page edition of U r atch-out Esquire en- joyed almost no outside circulation whatsoever, but it seemed a constructive step toward whatever colleges are supposed to be stepping toward. A feature of the Freshman Christmas party in West Hall was what the WEEKLY described as “Spine-tingl- ing Marimba solos” by Ruth Yoder. It was truly a thril- ling sight to see over 100 freshmen sitting and tingling their spines to Miss Yoder ' s marimba accompaniment. Maybe next year we can have some “ear-splitting” trum- pet solos by Wellace Eberts, or some " back-breaking " nuancing by the school band. The annual high society Hing, the inter-frat hop, took place just before Christmas. Jack Taylor, chairman, signed Bud Rader and his off-key quintet to play, while the chaperone list looked like " Who ' s Who on the Faculty " . The principal function of the ball, according to the WEEKLY, was “to start the Christmas house party on the right foot”. The symbolism there is rather deep, but it probably applies to the nasty habit some of the clumsier frat-men have of launching the evening with a short tour over their partners’ slippers. The following evening, again quoting the WEEKLY, “the fraternity men “rotated " from one house to another. It seems to your reviewer that " gyrated” would have been a more ac- curate verb. O. D. K., that organization of yogis and supermen, admitted three new members into its austere circle. John Metzger, scholar, athlete, and nearest approach to a prodigy, was accepted along w ' ith Clappermouth Die- fenderfer and John Fulmer, who got in long enough to pay the prohibitive dues and graduate. Having reached virtually the apex on this campus, Metzger took off a spare week-end and traveled down to Washington, D. C. to glean national honors. Battling against representatives of thirty colleges in a panel dis- cussion on some question of great political significance, Metz bulled with the best of them to take third place in the field. The first two winners had relatives on the board of judges. But the democratic English department isn’t easily in- fluenced and chose two of Metzger’s competitors to rep- resent the junior class in the annual oratorical contest. These juniors, however, proved sufficiently adequate to stop the fourth-year representatives in a battle of rhetoric and inconclusive generalities. Bob Holben, in a brand new suit, captured the gonfalon with a tidy save-the-world speech, while Bill Ward, despite peregrinations about Page Two Hundred One the stage, took second. AI Hofammann and Ed Wisser also spoke. It was announced that the Carnegie Foundation, which had furnished our seldom-used music room, was granting $15,000 to the school to be used in organizing an art department. Under the present plans, new headaches for the students will include courses in the history and ap- preciation of art. A true aesthete will be added to the faculty to direct the work of the new department. Spring Semester: 1941 Newest organization on the campus is Prof. Bob Mc- Clurkin ' s chess club, presided over by master-mind and castling wizard, Joe Schlegel. Having cagily postponed organization long enough so as not to be required to pay eleven dollars to get their picture into this opus, the club became a unique organization on the campus in that they concentrated on doing what they had organized to do. The boys play chess at every opportunity, and have even started the social demise of Prof. Bob by luring him into that house of perversion, the college store, to take part in frequent intellectual struggles. John W. J. J. Downie, private first-class, left our West- Allentown paradise for a rather cold life in the service at Indiantown Gap Reservation. The self-styled idol of the Sunday School set, Downie was slated to operate the camp lithograph. The Mask and Dagger assembled a rather imposing cast for its spring production, “Arms and the Man.’’ The play is a work of George Shaw, a successful play- wright. A fellow by the name of Smith who had done con- siderable traveling on the Burma Road arrived here one dreary Thursday morning to tell us about it. With a full repertoire of illustrations to accompany his incessant chatter, Smith kept the students interested with pictures of expansive goitres and other abnormalities of the na- tives of the region. Clarke Wescoe, of whom this review is becoming a biography, received the accolade of the seniors when they named him life-president of the class. On February 21, students and alumni attended the junior prom and danced to the music of T. Dorsey’s or- chestra, a local favorite. The omniscient student council sanctioned the appoint- ment of five sophomores to the Cardinal Key Society. This brotherhood, inaugurated late last year, was orig- inally organized to act as host to visiting groups on the campus. Outside of a couple of mass invasions such as sub-freshman day and parents’ day the society has done little except to maintain a constant wrangle as to who shall be members and who shall not, that sort of activity being common among a large number of campus or- ganizations. Correction: Previously in this discourse, 1 have recom- mended that you turn to page 169 for the picture of Mitzi Bruen, photographed with the senior ball committee. I beg to apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused you, hostile reader. As originally developed, the picture did include Miss Bruen; but a zealous engraver, anxious to effect a saving in copper for the defense program, and showing extremely poor taste in his choice of subjects to be discontinued, seems to have deleted Mitzi’s likeness from the plate. The organized wasters and exponents of legalized class-cutting, the debate team, got four of their set ex- cused to make a tour in the direction of Pittsburgh. Included among the prolix vagrants were Veteran Donin, Sophomore sensations Schwenk and Bollier, and Charlie Hanko. At about the same time, the freshmen opened their debate season under the sponsorship of Tau Kappa Metzger. The versatile Bert Gilbert starred in the Mask and Dagger assembly play, “Refund,” which had a slightly offensive aroma. Gilly’s performance had what critic Hofammann called “an off-hand manner and considerable aplomb, " but the students seemed to appreciate him any- how. P. Luigi Candalino’s make-up department dashed off some smart beards. Six freshmen in supporting roles offered almost no support. After his dramatic triumph, Gilbert took a Brody into the Middle Atlantic States wrestling championships, and was the only member of our squad to win a match. On March 14, the WEEKLY announced in eighteen point type that " Historians Meet Jointly at Ephrata.” Ever on the alert for authenticity, your reviewer is pleased to discredit this statement and to charge the Phi Alpha Thets, about whom it was written, of trying to get unwar- ranted publicity. For your reviewer has ascertained from absolutely reliable sources that Mr. Jointly was not even near Ephrata that night. He was up in Macungie visiting friends. The college made one of its periodic attempts at socially -.ignificant radio programs. Through the local station it was arranged to broadcast from the campus each week a student-faculty discussion on the vital questions of the day. As Professor McClurkin refused to dismiss the class early, your reviewer was unable to listen to the pro- grams. But they were probably not near so interesting as Professor McClurkin, and that should serve as a tidy apple-polish. There was a concert by the college band early in March. Attendance was required. The boys attempted some apparently intricate numbers and their percentage of ac- curacy in hitting the correct notes was not exceptional. However, a new arrangement of our fight song filled us with the collegiate jingo, and a pleasant rendition of " The Three Trees” helped to alleviate the tension that band music, forcibly heard, tends to create. New low in band presentation were three “schmaltzes” by Irv. Berlin. Claude Dierolf, the red menace, was chosen by the sophomore class to put out their edition of the yearbook, that conglomeration of inconsequential chatter that the junior class squanders its money on every year. John Elliott was elected to assist him as business manager. After a sequence of intrigues, locked doors, and China- men peeking through keyholes, the retiring WEEKLY staff huddled in the English office and elected. The If 7 hat ' s Helen Hayes Got that IV e Haven’t ? Club of Cedar Crest sponsored another savorless play, and again they subsidized some of our boys to take over the male roles. But they didn’t bargain for Happy Harold Knauss, Muhlenberg’s only hill-billy, whose chronic chat- ter kept the cast in a constant state of nausea. Very early in the play the audience became extremely bored. And the same to you, too, rapacious reader!
