For four years they seek refine- ment: then they separate. The college is an ideag its Classes are ideas: and each year the Idea empties another class back to the east and west and fills its forms again. The Idea remainsg the substance is forever free and volatile. CLASSES SENIQRS R. CALDNVELL R. ROSENVVALD K. HIKES R. HERTEL President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer THE SENIOR CLASS THE feeling is not uncommon among the senior class that the prospect of beginning again after graduation, in a more critical world. is a too sudden change from the life as a student. The idea has been variously thrown from the platform and lecture room in such high sounding phrases as "when one gets out into life," or, "when you go forth into the world to illumine and inspire." And thus the seniors are prepared for the worst. But there are those who, remembering Rasse- las, would smile, a little contemptu- ously perhaps, at the idea. Does it not, they would say, emphasize an artificial breach which some have emotionally placed between college and the worldg or, why should stu- dents find life essentially any differ- ent than life in the world of affairs? lf such is practically the case then it is a misconception of education, blind idealism, or the weakness of an individual unable to penetrate to fundamentals. At best it repre- sents a superficial philosophy and is actually a negation of education which these individuals would rather view as a continuous growth, gradu- ation not being the radical step into the dark, merely a landmark. OE life in college we would have all things pleasant to say. We ad- mire the college in its development, its students, its location, and size. We are glad to have contributed our efforts in the four years' process. As alumni the Class of '32 will still in- terest itself in North Central affairs. CLAIR F. ACHENBACH Naperville, Ill B. A.

I-IORNBACK President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer THE JUN BE pleased to meet this year's jun- ior Class, the Class of '33, In many respects the junior class is always the center of interest dur- ing the college year. From the ranks of this class must come such high of- ficials as a student body president, the able directors of the various all- campus organizations, and favored positions such as the May Queen, and the popular King Rex-to men- tion but a few, The possibilities of the junior class are numerous. As a junior the student is in the very midst of college work. He has selected his major field of study, He has been properly oriented, properly founded in the atmosphere of North Central, and he is ready to inherit the rank of a senior. The position IO R CLASS s of a junior is highly desirable. As a class they have become stabilized and its members aware of each other. Consciousness as a class has taken the place of the heterogeneity of the under class. Meanwhile the junior pursues his studies. The potentiality of such a class is well demonstrated and supported by the Class of '33, during this its junior year. Though it is smaller in size than the usual junior class, it has distributed its many talents effectively over the whole range of interests of college life. Inspect its ranks as they follow in order. Set yourself to the task of selecting from its many able members the roll call for next year's campus officials and titular positions.

MARKS Secretary Treasurer THE SOPHCDMORE CLASS PERMIT us to present the Sopho- mores,-individually,-the Class of '34, The sophomores are but one step removed from the juniors, and they are one step above the freshmen. Traditionally they are the chief plague-masters for the green-capped Frosh, and traditionally they take their part well, lt is their privilege to enjoy the stolen refreshments of freshman parties, to spoil the too early ambition of some Frosh Don juan, to protect properly the dignity of his majesty, King Rex, and to re- mind a pretentious Frosh of his lowly status. These small matters, however, do not interfere with the old fashioned "book-pounding." There is always the declension of a foreign verb to learn, or the essays of an English- man, named Bacon, to master. But the requirements are a matter of course, and the educative process rolls merrily along, But with the end of the second year the sophomore must look around and decide things for himself. A special field of study must be chosen: the world of affairs must be carefully examined and individual ability crit- ically weighed. There must be some point, some philosophy attached to his efforts: a youthful idealism must match strength with the facts of science and a practical world, It is no wonder then, that the sophomore year is a period of change, that the beginning of the junior year finds a more mature student.

SEITZ Secretary Treasurer THE FRESHMAN CLASS IN many respects the freshman year at college is the most inter- esting of all years. The newness and strangeness, or the presence of sophomores and upperclassmen and the ignominious position thereby in- herited only serves to make it more interesting. For the Hrst few weeks at college the freshmen occupy the center of the stage, the object of high hopes of pulchritude and per- sonality. Later a Term Social veri- fies the popular decision. From then on the freshman proceeds to become acquainted. The intelligence test is easily downed, and the English tests are forgotten. A Freshman Guid- ance Committee and a faculty advi- ser direct the organization of the class. The call to arms for the Frosh-Soph class struggles sounds early in the Fall. The intramural tournaments demand a following. The freshman is kept busy. A large response to these demands is always forthcoming. This year was not an exception. Though the class of '35 came in a year of depres- sion it is not a depression class. lt is one of the largest classes to begin at North Central. Any junior and senior will assert that it is good looking: it has proven its athletic abilityg its hope for scholastic honors is earnest and bright. W ' ff!

USTERE and important the Student Council stands alone and assumes the burdens and trou- bles of a fickle student body. Who would have it otherwise? for its mere existence is testimony of a live group of youth whose passionate radicalism burns from one extremity to another only to change with an- other day. And who does not envy the college student for his youth? The Student Council is the instru- ment of student democracy, the rep- resentative legislature. the board of student administration. It is inevi- table that problems should arise if that youthful material would be guided in educative channels-prob- lems arising from a conflict of clic- tated concept and a student body personality. The Student Council is almost an arbiter-at least its wor- ries are those of one. As an arbiter it realizes that groups form among students not on the issues of one problem, but be- cause of the more subtle attraction of personality types, and that these groups, dominated by their assorted beliefs, are powerful factors in mold- ing student sentiment that at times may be contrary to the dictates of a reasonable authority. It also realizes that as a council it deals with singu- lar and specific problems, and group opinion, to be valid, must consist of real individual opinion on each sin- gular and specific problem. This is hardly possible in the majority of is- sues. Hence the Council reserves the right for itself to not only shape and determine the popular wish, but also direct and sometimes change the nature of that wish. The Council this year has been characterized by an intelligent effort to fulfill its obligation. lt has hon- estly tried to throw aside all worn out devices that hinder progress, and it has, honestly, tried to revise itself into an eflicient organization. It has even striven to train its constituency in the proper manners of good Amer- ican citizens. We have all reasons to be proud of this year's Council, We hope that next year will find this year's accomplishments a sturdy foundation upon which to build. ll T 60 THE CQLLEGE A. MARCKHOFF, R.

A DEFINITE purpose directs the activities of the College Young Women's Christian Association. It is stated thus: "Full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God." Its efforts parallel those of the Y. M. C. A. and it co-operates with them in many campus projects. It is allied with several national or- ganizations, and contributes financial support and services. But perhaps the most outstanding effort of this group is its attempt to foster each year a spirit of friendliness and con- geniality among the girls of the cam- pus. Particularly valuable is this for those just entering college, the fresh- man girls, And particularly fortu- nate for the solidarity of campus life is this effort to adjust the new girl in new surroundings and to extend an atmosphere of fraternity. This ser- vice is accomplished by a "Big-Little Sister" plan, wherein an upper-class girl introduces a freshman girl to her first week of college life, culminating in a "Big-Little Sister" banquet at the end of the week. The same ideal is presented in a unique and admir- able manner during "Heart Sister" week in February. This plan would have each girl contrive, under the cover of anonymity, to present an- other girl with favors and kindness on five successive days. The iden- tity of each Sister is made known at a banquet at the end of the week. But few devices are better than this in presenting the ideal of sympa- thetic service. A special gathering, known as the "Y. W. and Y. M. Retreat" is held in the spring of the year. Here the newly elected oflicers of both cabi- nets and other members meet for in- spirational purposes and to plan the work of the next year together. The affairs of the Association are controlled by a cabinet of sixteen girls and live faculty advisers. The election of officers is an annual affair in the early spring. The work other than that outlined may be well summed up by a review of the standing committees: Vesper, Cam- pus Night, Chapel, Fellowship, So- cial Service, Employment, Freshman Work and Membership, Social, Lit- erary, Publicity, and World Fellow- ship. A contemplation of the history and work of the College "Y's" could but prove them both as positive influ- ences working for the betterment of student life. One must only need to ask the question of what other organ- ization on the campus, among the students, would care for the social life and activity, to realize the ser- vices of these two groups. lt could also be asked what groups could be better fitted for the task than those tantalized with a spirit of service. f - 1 ? ! : f E i E Z 2 Q h E 5 , 4 1 5 1 2 9 62 I 1 THE COLLEGE N.

HAS the utility of the Christian religion in student life de- creased? To such a question the College Young lVlen's Christian As- sociation would offer a negative an- swer. To back up this fundamental belief they would present their long list of campus activities and interests. which being needful, they alone sup- ply the need. They would also state a long contemplated conviction that religion, instead of decreasing, has increased in value, its field has been more broadly defined and has be- come more challenging. It would also observe that in the stress and change of growth, individualism has penetrated the solidarity of orthodox religion and that, as a result, an or- ganization of Christian activity must care for diverse gradations of reli- gious zeal. Few would argue successfully the rebuttal of the apologist. For this Christian organization holds a defi- nite and serviceable place in the cam- pus life. It may also be maintained that its Christian attitude, showing itself in a broader social activity. coming as a result of decreased for- malism, has served to give it the po- sition of director of social activity. Consider the range of interest of this association, It is respon- sible, together with the Young Women's Christian Association, for one inspiring chapel service during each week of the school year. Mr. Paul Kitson, vice-president of the organization, has successfully guided this activity this year. Also in conjunction with the girls, the Sunday afternoon Vespers have been sponsored, directed by the capable Herbert Frank, secretary. This also has included several community ves- pers. The Freshman Party, the Term Social and several other all- college social parties are also the work of the Y, M. C. A., through the directorship of Arthur Koster. Missionary work among the freshmen, vocational guidance, and an Employment Bureau are some of the other activities conducted by the Y. M. C, A, Each year a week is set aside and a speaker is obtained for the purpose of religious empha- sis, At another time speakers are imported to review contemporary world problems: and this year saw an attempt to produce a model as- sembly of the League of Nations. It is the belief of the Association that a program of this nature, col- ored and presented with a Christian background and viewpoint, is a more effective and subtle method of per- petuating the spirit of Christ than religious services of a more formal type. With this also would go the conviction that such affairs as world events, social life, and vocational training are to be presented, with profit to the individual, through the light of Christian ethics. U E shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." This, the constant aim of all social science, is also the challenging motto of Pi Gamma Mu, the national social science honorary society. lt is sym- bolized on the Pi Gamma Mu key by a torch in the hands of a running figure. ln April, 1924, the suggestion of an Economics honor society was made by Professor Leroy Allen, de- partment head of economics at Southwestern College. The idea was soon changed, however, in favor of one that would establish a society for the whole field of social science. By the fall of the same year seven- teen colleges and universities had ac- cepted the proposal and a constitu- tion was clrawn up. In December, also of the same year, the local chap- ter was organized. Today the na- tional organization numbers more than one hundred and three chap- ters, widely distributed throughout the country. The society has a two-fold pur- pose: to foster among undergradu- ates a scientific attitude toward social questions and to keep alive this sci- entific interest among those who have graduated. An excellent means to realize this latter aim is found in the quarterly journal of Pi Gamma Mu, Social Science. This magazine is directed to these groups of gen- eral education and to those who have specialized in social science. The chapter here at North Central has been active since its induction. It has included in its membership graduates who have achieved dis- tinction in the world of affairs, as university professors, editors and authors. Pl GAMMA MU Prof. Heinuiiller, D1'. Attig, Dean Kirn L. Urbziuer, T. Claus gn 64 HE national honor speech fra- ternity, Pi Kappa Delta, has a strong chapter on the North Central College campus. The aim of this or- ganization is well expressed by the Greek letters PKD, signifying "Per- suasion,-beautiful and just." In order to become a member of Pi Kappa Delta a student must meet the requirements of the local chapter, which are somewhat higher than the general requirements, and must show ability in some branch of the forensic field, including oratory, debate and extemporaneous speech. The local chapter, the Iota chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, has always been among the leaders in the Held of speech. During the year 1930-31 it had the very unusual record in na- tional achievement of twenty-fourth place. This is to be considered a high rank when it is remembered that North Central is in constant competi- tion With much larger schools, such as the University of Redlands, Cali- fornia, the University of Texas, and many State Teachers colleges. Each year the Illinois Iota chapter sends representatives to either the provincial or to the national conven- tion. Qshkosh, Wisconsin was the scene of convention for the year 1930-31. The delegates from North Central were able to return to Naper- ville with second place honors in wo- mens debate and with honorable mention in other branches of speech. North Central can be truly proud of the enterprising activity of this organization. PI KAPPA DELTA Prof. Oliver, E. Fischer, B. Bernd, T. Ifauber YV, Herr, G. Arends, C. Boettcher, M.

There is nothing radical in the 1932 SPEC- TRUM-the nature of the publication does not demand that, nor did a limited budget: but artistically We have sought to present a cross sec- tion of life at North Central. The word "theme" as applied to annuals has almost become revolting and certainly confused with a type of uni- fied art Work which was often tedi- ous, superflous and ornate to dis- traction. The style of this book is perhaps best described by the word "classic" since it presents its material without the pretension of shading and decorations that lend subtlety. Rather, the appeal of this book is inherent in its subject matter. MONG the activities that cluster around a college campus few present the rare opportunities as those offered by the Mens Glee Club. lt is an organization that has always been popularg its services have always been in demand for various college programs. To be included in its membership may be considered a personal achieve- ment because it means the selection and approval of one's ability to sing. Competitive "try-outs" are held early in the fall of each year, to determine the personnel of a home squad of twenty-four to thirty-six members. Preparation then begins immediately for the annual spring concert, al- ways an outstanding event on the college calendar. This club also presents the oppor- tunity of training both in group sing- ing and in the appreciation of a high grade of program music. This train- ing is very ably accomplished by Professor I-lermanus Baer. As direc- tor, Mr. Baer has proven his ability in the selection and interpretation of music that is superior and appealing in quality. He has obtained the ad- miration of the whole club through his own personality and leadership. The traveling squad is chosen soon after the spring concert. This small group represents the college in sum- mer tours through different parts of the country, ranging from coast to coast, by means of concerts given in the various Evangelical churches. The congeniality and experience of this trip makes itlof particular interest and value. MEN'S GLEE CLUB C, Yoh, -T. I'lrfll'IlIHlCk, H. Abel, R. Ball, M, Gates, L. Ruiikel, H, XVhite W. MHIIQPS, R.

Iacob dreams once a year on our campus and it is the occasion of the long awaited and prepared spring concert when the select choir of angelic voices proclaims in har- mony its gleeful art of linked sweetness long drawn out-sufficient proof to the doubting soul that angels are feminine. Not all the angels join the visible choir: competition limits the number to those who sing and read well so that Iacob will hear a well balanced program of modern compositions. classical songs, and traditional folk- songs, blended with lucid harmony and interpreted accurately. Fervently and assiduously the girls practice twice a week to obtain these elusive qualities under the direction of Miss White, master of baton technique. So effective is the direction and the waving baton that the harmony of modern arrangements is handled easily by the club and attains charm- ing simplicity. A sextette is trained to give groups of folksongs. In March, after the few hurried touches of the adept baton, the appointed hour comes, the angel voiced choir appears in all its glory and with song plies a ladder to pleasure the enrap- tured Iacob.

During the year it provides the col- lege community with wholesome en- tertainment upon various occasions, and its presence at football and basketball games seems almost a necessity. lt is most appreciated per- haps, upon those occasions when it dispenses enthusiasm and good cheer at the college pep meetings. Certain- ly no torch-light, or homecoming parade would be the same without it: nor that hilarious occasion when King Rex rides to slow music behind his groaning, obsequious subjects- the freshmen. Much credit for the success of this year's edition of the band must be accorded Director Toenniges, for it was largely due to his able and en- thusiastic direction that interest and attendance remained steady through- out the year. Also, as a result of the efforts of Mr. Toenniges, the instru- mentation of the band was well bal- anced, with capable musicians head- ing each section. Despite the fact that it included the greatest membership of recent years, the band was not large, and it was necessary to supplant quantity with quality. Success in this respect can best be measured by the many glowing reports current following the various concerts and appear- ances. lt is felt certain that the continued success of the red-caped musicians is assured as long as Director Toen- niges continues his present policies which include, not only the various appearances, but the recording of college songs and a spring contest for high school bands as well. These enterprises are certain to create and hold student interest in an organiza- tion that is highly essential and im- portant to any complete college com- munity-the band. THE COLLEGE BAND V, .,., ,W ,Vi WITH strains similar to those used by Orpheus in winning back his Eurydice from the under- world, the orchestra seeks each week to untwist "all the chains that tie the hidden soul of harmony." Music hath its charms! and with such a belief twenty-five or thirty musicians, building upon an organization de- veloped last year, have enthusiasti- cally improved the state of that art at North Central. Particularly in- teresting and noteworthy is the bal- ance in instrumentation that has been maintained, which permits of a sym- phonic and pleasing program. The string section, the soul of an orches- tra, has. during the last few years. been difficult to fill sufficiently. Per- haps it has been due to the popularity of band instruments with High School students. Therefore it is more than interesting to realize that much support has been obtained from this year's musically inclined Freshmen. Too much credit cannot be given to the director, Mr. Toenniges. Find- ing, when he came, a pitiful lack of organization and interest in orches- tral work, he has by his own ability and efforts established. what has more than once been demonstrated, a competent orchestra. I-le has com- pensated the former need of players by a very definite ability to bring out the hidden talent of potential musi- cians. By his leadership the organiza- tion has been able to present during the school year, concerts that are well-balanced, pleasing and artistic, and also to achieve a fundamental goal of all orchestral work-a deeper appreciation of better music. Can we not by the method of these few lines show him our appreciation, as well as that of the whole student body? THE COLLEGE ORCHESTRA HE art-form known as the drama arose from rituals and ceremoni- als that came as a product of a primi- tive man's conception of his place among other men and a mysterious environment, The dramatic value of the spoken word with action has endured to this day, acquiring through the years the analytical pur- pose of holding, "as 'twere, the mir- ror up to nature," becoming an effec- tive instrument of self-expression and a subtle influence upon the ideals of any one period. What human problem is there that has not found its Way to the stage? Who is it that has never felt the power and effec- tiveness of the dramatist's analysis and philosophy? The dramatic field thus defined has motivated the Golden Triangle Play- ers, this year, to strive to obtain and to give a still finer appreciation of these distinct dramatic qualities. This meant a careful choice of the plays to be produced. "Death Takes a Holiday" was taken for the first autumn production. The abstract nature of the play and the novelty of its subject matter required an ex- cellent quality of acting and scenery effects. The cast required careful consideration: and when the eventful night came it was discovered that the juvenile-role actor of a former play had ripened into a mature sophisti- cation, and that a formerly crafty politician had become a gentle and youthful lover. The personal devel- opment required by such versatility has been the constant aim of this year's Golden Triangle Players. THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE PLAYERS J. Barry, H. Frank, VV. Hofert, O. Gingrich, XV.

Arends IN Duke Lambert's castle in Italy it is nearing midnight on a late October evening. The great hall is dimly lighted: but outside the tall cyprus trees are flooded with the bright moonlight. Weird shadows have constantly darkened the face of the moon, shadows that puzzle the house party members in the castle. It is a night of accidents and miracu- lous escapes. Grazia alone is serene as she complacently dreams in the garden. Into this group enters Death, seeking, on a holiday, the secret of human fear of him. He is disguised as Prince Sirki. The Duke alone knows his identity. The sophisticated Baron evades the Prince's questions on love and power. Alda, a vigorous girl of flesh and blood, disappoints his vision of love with mere passion that cools at the mention of death. But it is in Grazia that he discovers the love that casts out fear, that is greater than illusion and stronger than death. A terrific struggle seizes the Prince, as at the close of his three-day holiday he realizes he must abandon mortal existence. He finds it impossible to leave behind his new found love, Grazia. The pleadings of the parents and friends to save the life of the beautiful girl increase his agony. The solution is made only when Grazia avows that she would be unhappy in the world of Time without her lover and will go with him whom she has never feared and always thought beautiful. DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY RITERS are generally interest- ing personalities. A group of them together may be brilliant on occasion and completely bored at another time. They display a wide range of ideas and a temperament different than any other group. Thus marked off it is natural that they would unify their ranks more closely into a fraternity that would seek to further an interest in writing. This fraternity is the Sigma Tau Delta, an honorary professional English organization with chapters spread throughout the country. The suggestion of placing a chapter of Sigma Tau Delta on this campus met a whole-hearted approval last spring among the devotees to the noble art. So on February 18, 1932, the Sigma Gamma chapter was for- mally installed, twenty-three mem- bers-students and alumni-initiated as charter members, and the activity started with a banquet. This group is not intended to take the place of the Writers' Clubg but being an honorary affair its qualifi- cations are higher and it will include those graduates from the larger Writers' Club. Publication is always an incentive and the goal of writers. The Rectangle, the magazine of the fraternity furnishes some satisfaction to this desire. From now on the best efforts of the local writers will appear within its pages. It is planned to hold meetings of Sigma Tau Delta regularly. They will be of a literary nature, not neces- sarily consisting of original material, but also the critical and appreciative examination of contemporary litera- ture. These meetings will be valuable. The fraternity will offer a fine oppor- tunity for informal experience in literature. SIGMA TAU DELTA E. Henninger, G. Hzzist, T, Rickard, -T. Barry, P. Zahl, Prof. XVhite F. Jones, F. Wfehert, E. XVi1ey, E. Nnegeli MOST interesting and capable is the English Club, or the Writ- ers' Club as it is sometimes known. Imagine if you can, an evening spent in the critical examination of original poetry and prose, the volatile product in any season, of a Springs creative mood,-the original fabric, the raw material of excellent literature. How have the noble passions prospered! With what fortitude and learned grace has the exquisite Hsoul- flowern been offered to a half-circle of "horned" critics, But no: the critics are constructive and mild: so the poetry and prose is contributed freely, and the overflow of powerful emotion is adequately guided. It is in such a manner that the English Club promotes an interest in writing, develops a definite skill in literary criticism and trains its de- votees in the presentation of the ma- terial, for, of course, poetry must be orally read. Occasionally outside speakers are invited to the club meet- ing to talk on some line of cultural interest--art, literature, music, or criticism. The Club has also a distinct social value, The meetings, usually in a private home, prove to be round tables of opinions stimulated by a groups' common interest in literature. The Club at present has about twenty-five membersg it has been steadily growing in membership and interest since 1928, the year it was organized. This year the Club has helped to sponsor the organization of a chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the national writers' fraternity. Such an organization is an honor to the school, and a privilege for those qualified to become members.

Any person holding such an idea would be quickly dispossessed of it if he were to step into the history depart- ment and see what a large percent- age of the college youth were actu- ally interested in the subject. He would change his mind still more when he found out about the History Club. The History Club was organized in the spring of 1922 for those espe- cially interested in history and in fol- lowing that interest beyond the classroom. The club is open to all juniors and seniors majoring in his- tory and to sophomores who have shown outstanding ability. It meets twice each month of the school year. These meetings center around a varied and interesting program. Sometimes imaginary historical trips have been taken through different sections of the country, or studies have been made of the lives of the individuals who have contributed much to history but who receive little attention in the text-books: and this year each meeting has centered around some occurrence or institu- tion. For example: at one meeting the members turned themselves into New Englanders and conducted a town meeting, another time they cele- brated Guy Falkes Day, and at one meeting they even attempted to read Chinese characters. Under the guidance of Dr. Attig, professor and adviser, the students actually live and enjoy history. It is the aim of the History Club to stimulate a greater and a more vivid interest in the study of the past. THE HISTORY CLUB K. Sturgeon, XV. Johnson, VV. Allanson, S. Corrzillo, E. Schafer, R.

Umbreit BSERVE the method of the true classicist in recalling the glory of the past: the membership of the Classics Club is divided into three classes: plebians-those students in the department in elementary courses not counting for a major, patricians -those in advanced courses, and amici-those persons not enrolled in the department but interested in the Classical languages. Even the bur- dens of administration rest upon dig- nitaries with resounding titles: First Consul, Alfreda Stallmang Second Consul, Willard Giese: Censor, Flor- ence Pooleg Quaestor, Harold Kriegg Tribunis Plebis, Helen Bertramg and Legatus Amicorum, Alvera Clark, Of these the first four must be patri- cians. These Consuls and Censor have a chance to function at meetings held eight times throughout the school year. The programs for these meet- ings are prepared either by a special committee or by one of the classes of the Classics department. The programs are usually highly enter- taining and related in a serious or humorous manner to the life and lit- erature of Greece and Rome. This type of activity presents a rare op- portunity to recall dramatically in vivid terms the poetry of a Sappho living in Lesbos in 600 B. C., or the original genius of a Homer. Programs of this nature give a deeper appreciation and a more in- timate acquaintance with classical backgrounds and at the same time supplement the classroom with closer social contacts. For prospective teachers the Work of this club affords training and suggestions useful for the supervision of similar clubs in secondary schools. These are some of the aims and values of the club.

Schmidt l EARLY last fall a steak fry-a "Weenie roast gone aristocratic" -was the occasion of introducing to the eligible Sophomore girls, the unique and interesting activity of the Home Economics Club. Since then twenty-three girls, majors in Home Economics of the three upper classes, have participated in meetings held each month throughout the school year. These meetings not only ap- proach being social events but are also highly educational. But those are the purposes of the club: to promote friendship within the department and to give in an informal manner the latest developments in Home Eco- nomics. But consider some of the activities other than the meetings. Miss Quill- ing journeyed to Detroit to attend the National Home Economics Conven- tion, the report she brought back was especially interesting. Chicago, this year, offered the attraction of the State convention of this department, and many of the club members at- tended the meetings. However, con- ventions are not all. The annual Christmas Tea given to the Wom- an's Club of Naperville by the 'AI-Iome EC" girls was omitted this year in order to give toys to the Naperville Relief Society for the community's poor children. Then, there is an Evaporated Milk demon- stration, a group of book-reports from the members, and a spring party. The success of this varied program has been quite responsive to efforts not only of the club members but also to the sponsors, the capable Profes- sors Snyder and Quilling. THE HOME ECONOMICS CLUB E.

Mehnert, M. Gantzert, F. Quilling, C. Beightol HERE is a group of students on this campus that meet early every Sunday morning for a short worship service. Whenever a returned mis- sionary finds his way to Naperville he is almost sure to make an appear- ance at once of these meetings. Lack- ing a missionary or other speakers, these meetings become periods of quiet meditation and prayer or in- spirational music. This group is known as the Student Volunteers. It is a part of a great National and International student movement which aspires to give its members a Christian World View and to broad- en the horizon of the individual life with the ideal of Christian Service. To this end all student members are encouraged in the proper training for their chosen vocation, holding high as standards, superior scholarship and thoroughness of preparation. Such an organization provides the congenial fellowship of a common- purposed group. Its ultimate value is found in its ability to keep alive, dur- ing the educative process, that zeal- ous conviction found in a moment of religion, of the pressing need of Christian service in lands other than our own. To this end the local group has organized its activity and pro- gram. There are two social events during the year. In the fall a regular party aids to organize and initiate the years program, while a picnic in the spring usually introduces the interest of a treasure hunt, a picnic, or a base- ball game.

P fvifer EACH year there comes to North Central a group of young men having particular interest in the social and mystical aspects of life: they come to realize themselves more completely by contributing their in- tellectual and emotional strength to- ward perfecting a more ideal world in which good will and justice shall function freely. Drawn together by common general interests, most of these become members of the Seager Association, which, in turn, endeav- or to further instruct and inspire candidates for the ministry. Meetings are held monthly, at which speakers of experience in Christian living present current prob- lems and show the need of prudent idealism requisite to meet them. Occasionally, illustrated talks on art or music are given. Group thought and discussion are quite limited to the topics of religion, music, and art be- cause scientific and philosophical problems are quite carefully studied in the classroom, while problems per- tinent to our organization are not. The true function of the Seager Association is of necessity eclectic, for it aims to help the college student interested in the ministry get an ap- proach to the whole of life with ref- erence to humanity. lt is without pretense to answer the classic riddles of existence, with- out claim to perfection, without self- complaisance, that we band ourselves together. But realising with Para- celsus that "progress is The law of life, man is not Man as yet," we hope through the intelligent use of consecrated power to help some- one achieve Christian personality.

Yan HERE is the reward offered by the Forensic League to those stu- dents meeting the established stand- ards of public speaking proficiency: a gold charm-engraved with the school letters-and set off by a jewel, a ruby, an emerald or a diamond- designating the number of years of service. All students are members of the Forensic League-a league of the public speaking activities on the cam- pus. A board heads this membership and controls its affairs and expendi- tures. Officers, elected annually by the student body, a manager of Ora- tory, a manager of Extemporaneous Speech, and a professor of Speech constitute this administrative body. Debate has always been a center of interest at North Central College. Strong lVlen's and Womens teams have always represented this school in competition with other Illinois schools and with schools of other states, This year a trip to the Na- tional Pi Kappa Delta convention at Tulsa, Oklahoma, was an incentive for which to strive. Needless to say the men and women who made the trip heartily enjoyed the southern oil-country. Extemporaneous Speech is also sponsored by the league by means of several contests held during the school year. In the field of Oratory the winners of several local contests were sent to the State Oratorical Contest at Alton, Illinois. The advantages of training in this art of expression is open to all those who wish to avail themselves of its advantages, regardless of their de- gree of ability. FORENSIC BOARD OF CONTROL F, BflHlf4'lllll', ll . Rilillltigt' li, l"isc-lwig -I. Baxrry, M. Sultan, B, lierml, Prof, Oliva-1' FTER the Christmas holidays were over Coach Deabler, '31, issued a call for men to represent North Central on the debate plat- form. A score of men or more an- swered the call and were immediately set to work to find facts and figures for the question presented by the Illinois Debate League: "Resolved: That Congress should enact legisla- tion for the centralized control of industry." The inexperienced men were given training in debates held in various high schools and churches. Debate manager Boettcher had ar- ranged a preliminary schedule of non-decision debates with various colleges located in the middle west. March fourth was the beginning of the Illinois Debate League season for North Central. This first debate was lost to the aflirmative team of Illinois Wesleyan. The next three debates were won by North Central men who showed a skill in debating that promised hopes for the league cham- pionship. But our old and worthy opponents, Wheaton College, de- cided that the honor should be theirs. As a result of this decision the next debate was lost to Wheaton. The last debate of the season was with Illinois College which proved to be a victory for North Central. Earlier in the sea- son Wheaton had lost to Illinois College which proved to be their only loss. North Central lost the cup and championship by one debate. How- ever plans are under way for a championship team and season next year. ILLINOIS LEAGUE DEBATES March 4, Augustana's aflirmative, here -lost. March 4, Illinois Wesleyan's negative. there-lost.

Were movie stars to be found in heaven it would not produce any greater ex- citement than that displayed on this event, The Booster clubs feature stunts and picnics, a prized parade, and tennis and a baseball game add more excitement. The Seniors pro- tect the dignity of the fountain, and the Frosh toss oif their green caps. COLLEGE DAY With the setting sun a May Fete elaborately introduces the new Queen of the May. On the long green lawn of Kroehler Field, with ceremonies fit for royalty, Miss Dorothea Kimmel was chosen as this year's May Queen. The setting was perfect, the costumes and spectacles colorful. One act plays at Pfeiffer Hall please us then. And soon after that King Rex holds his annual session. This year Mr. Lloyd Hin- ders inherited the crown of Emil Kenas amid the obeisances of the pajama clad court retinue. Rain hindered the usual chariot ride spon- sored by the Frosh. And woe to the Frosh who fails to honor the King. HOME-COMING After long and devout intercession that brings forth a beautiful autumn day the student body goes on dress parade to welcome the return of friends and graduates of North Cen- tral. A select committee proudly pro- duces an ambitious list of events to fill the Whole day. There are games of pushball, of soccer, and tennis. There is a colorful parade of floats, sporty cars, individual vaudeville, and Adam and Eves-all demanding the bountiful prize. The morning is Hlled with entertainment and the hilarity of recounting the old, old stories, and the new found impor- tance of classmates when they meet again together. HOME-COMING As the long shadows steal across the battleground where black splotches along the green sod retell the story of fierce struggle, a football game ends and the warriors silently file back to the big red fieldhouse-an- other Home-coming football game has ended and North Central, aided by the alumni, has Won or lost the annual game with Lake Forest. But Won or lost the "grads" have still the banquet to anticipate and the Golden Triangle Play at Pfeiffer Hall to attendg after that the long, long night continues to be filled with Home-coming and celebration. ACTIVITIES Audaciously the master flashes an eye, calls each musician to his bid- ding, twirls the baton, and brings the exotic music forth that starts the parade of Freshmen charms to proper people on proper painted bleachers. The gay term social blazes forth and autographs are at a premium. Music sounds again and a Halloween party gilds the eve- ning and feeds the social instinct, or a Valentine party honors the King and Queen of Hearts and the clever cupids' smiles. Now and then a shuffle of feet proclaim a vain de- sire: and yet the master blinks an- other eye at Olympiad games, class and Booster parties, and noble, for- mal banquets. AND EVENTS Catalog and strike it across the page of your memory these rare and fleetf ing sights: the brightness of a Freshman's eye as he tugs on the rope with ever the constant hope of seeing the Sophs in the Dupage river, the grace of the portly Potter as he interprets the Spring zephyrs with his dances, the "N" Club Revue when athletes assume the Follies role, and the impassioned amateur actor holding the mirror up to nature while the student director follows the grand Oliverian plan. Include also as most rare and fleeting those studious hours spent among the oddities of a student's room. MORE EVENTS Sleuths are scarce, being pleasure bent themselvesg otherwise we could offer to you actual scenes of North Central night life. Besides, the night air is not the best for photographers health. But the campus in the day- light is an attractive place. We would feature for you the hours idled away in pure enjoyment of the Fall, Spring, and Winter, the contrasts of light and shade, two budding flowers, the posed form of a swimmer diving, and the activity of Naperville cele- brating a centennial. These present the relief that must follow the nerve- racking work of politics and campus organizations. These are romantic also. THEY THAT TAKE THE SWORD The warrior stood at the tent of the implement maker And bade him to fashion him a sword that none may withstand As keen as the northmost wind, the bitter breath-taker. That frightens the heart till it knocks on the palm of the hand. Said he, "Thou shall scour it to brightness exceeding the light. Make swifter its thrust than the arrow of lightning at nightg At noon let it wear on its blade like a jewel, the sun, And flash like a myriad meteors-'ere thou hast done! When I strike let it cry like the wind in a field of rice And slay without ever the need to wield it twice!" And pray, sir, what shall be graven upon the hilt?" The warrior gruffly replied, "Whatever thou wilt!" So the implement maker obeisance made to his lord: He hammered and burnished a blade of shimmering steel, That never in all the world before such a sword So fatal was fashioned for the heart of the foeman to feel. Cf the guard and the hilt the shape of a skull he made With a field of battle wrought out in a curious device, And under he graved the legend-"Who wieldeth this blade Shall never have need to brandish or strike with it-twice!" -HAROLD EDGAR WHITE. S7 BUCK V WE Wish to recognize a contemporary tendency to glorify sports and games. The emphasis is not misplaced. Dancing was ever an art. Exaltation and rhythm are feelings that grow with the natural grace of bodily action. And what youth does not glory in the athlete. Sincerely we believe in the development of college athletics. ATHLETICS MERNER GYMNASIUM AND FIELD I-Iousli WAS it a misfortune or a blessing that one early morning within the memory of most of us, the fire whistle shrieked out, the sirens called, and it was discovered that old Nicholas Hall was burning? Sup- posedly the power wires had been tangled. The fire department had excellent advice, but the building burned. Had it not burned we could suggest many uses for the place- an aquarium, a social room or a hy- drogen sulphide chemical laboratory. With it went the barracks, the old men's dormitory. In the place of the old playhouse arose the Merner gym- nasium and Field House, the com- inodious and well equipped athletic building that is the pride of the school, and an attraction for state meets and athletic scholars. Further specifications will be furnished by re- quest. It is not even to be compared with the old gymnasium. Today all students enjoy its opportunities. It has raised the school's batting aver- age one hundred ,per cent. Was it a misfortune or a blessing? The Athletic Board of Control is a group of titled students and faculty that control the athletic calendar, the purse strings of the student athletic fee and awards honors and distinc- tions. The student body athletic re- presentative, a W. A. A. representa- tive, the coaches and Chairman Domm, and Professor Erffmeyer make up this controlling board, To preserve a natural harmony, to accentuate an acquired distinction, the "N" club is formed. Its members have won the coveted athletic award, the school monogram or letter But aside from being honorary, the club is active in giving programs and revues and now and then a social meet. FISHER BIEBER EIGENBRODT GORDON R. FISHER came to North Central from the Univer- sity of Minnesota in 1926. Taking charge as director of athletics at a time when the Cardinal athletic for- tunes were at a low ebb, Fisher has achieved noteworthy success. His teams have twice gained conference titles, In six years his football teams have won 37, tied 5, and lost 15 gamesg while his track teams have been defeated but once in dual or triangular competition. Coach Fisher has not restricted his efforts alone to teaching the proper athletic technique however, for it is largely due to his efforts that North Central now boasts a comprehensive program of physical education and possesses the Merner Fieldhouse. SINCE coming to North Central in 1927 Leonard Bieber has become recognized as one of the state's lead- ing mentors in baseball and basket- ball. As an undergraduate Bieber starred in three sports at Cornell College of Iowa, and as a coach he has been very successful in trans- mitting his knowledge to others. His basketball teams have been particu- larly impressive, scoring a grand average of .712 in five years of con- ference competition. In 1931 the Cardinals won eleven of twelve con- ference games, only to be "nosed" out for the championship by 12 per- centage points. Bieber has also coached several smart and winning baseball teams. DESPITE the fact that his duties as one of North Central's youngest departmental heads are somewhat pressing, Dr. Eigenbrodt finds time from his microscope each spring to produce a winning tennis team for North Central. A true student of the game, Dr. Eigenbrodt bases his coaching upon sound fun- damentals, with the result that he in- variably produces a strong team for dual competition. His teams have won several district titles and occa- sionally the more gifted of his pro- teges have advanced to the final rounds of the state meet, Du 00:11:11 Fixhm-r, M. Sivbert, L.

Of this number only eight were letter men, and but six had been regulars. Four men who had won their letters as Freshmen failed to put in an ap- pearance and numerous capable re- serves were likewise absent. The schedule called for practice encoun- ters with De Paul and Elmhurst as well as games with six worthy con- ference foes and with Kalamazoo, champions of Michigan, Qptimism in the Cardinal camp was conspicuous by its absence. The showing made by the team was a surprise, and was possible only because of the fine Freshman ma- terial. Many considered the team the equal of the 1929 champions save in reserve strength, The opponents were outgainecl in every game. The disappointing Monmouth game saw the Scots capitalize on mistakes that were not repeated. The Cardinals, on the days they played Lake Forest and De Kalb, were regarded as the equal of any team in the conference. Coaches Fisher and Bieber, and their assistants, Williams, Schneider, and Kenas, are to be congratulated on the results they achieved. Captain Schafer, Kerth, and Fisher were named on several honorary selections, while Captain-elect Mas- sier, Stiles, and Dillon were likewise mentioned. Captain Schafer proved a capable leader and played at end after having previously served at guard, tackle and halfback. His career ended ap- propriately when he caught the pass that beat Kalamazoo and scored the final touchdown. Williams, line cozicll. Fisher, hezxd concli, Nelson, Ketcliann, Feller, Breitlieiupt.

Doenier earned the ninth letter of a versatile career, again holding down his end position. Iohnson, brilliant blocker and defensive star, was lost after the Shurtleff game with a broken leg. Koster, a lanky end, Manning. who brought basketball tricks to the grid, and Razaitis were other seniors to win their letters. Stiles and Fisher again manned the tackle posts. Stiles was the "iron man" with sixty min- utes in each game. Fisher was one of the few linemen to ever call sig- nals until his leg was broken in the Augustana game. Massier, most durable of the backs, will lead next year's squad. His work at Kalamazoo was particu- larly praiseworthy. Other Iuniors were Sturgeon, whose 155 pounds of dynamite achieved great results as a blocking back, and Siebert, whose track speed stood him in good stead at center and tackle. The eight Freshmen who received letters include Smith, 130 pounds of snakes-hips and speed, Pyle, an ex- cellent place kicker and blocker. Willauer, a watch-charm guard, Ball, an aggressive tackle, Fry, a chunky guard, Reichenbacker, hard hitting end and fullback, Dillon, very impressive at center, and "Young" Nolte, the last of that lighting clan. SCHAFER Captain KERTH Captain-elect MONMOUTH COLLEGE subsequently the champion of two conferences, sub- jected an untried North Central team to a true bap- tism of fire in the Cardinal's opener. Despite the Scots' power, misplays MONMOUTI-I 26 NORTH CENTRAL 12 and poor judgment, the result of in- experience, proved the undoing of the Cardinals. The fighting Scots, on the other hand, proved themselves opportunists in the extreme. They scored twice from far down the field on deceptive plays and again when a desperate Cardinal pass was inter- cepted, and lastly after a fumble was recovered on the disorganized Car- dinals' twelve-yard line. The two North Central touchdowns came after a steady march down the field with Kerth plunging over the goal from the two yard line, and a fifty yard run by Iohnson. North Central outgainecl Monmouth, but their at- tack was not consistent and a scoring punch was absent, as evidenced by the fact that they twice failed to score from within the Scots' five- yard line. ,...f.-'9-'5'-i SHURTLEFF 6 NORTH CENTRAL 7 WISDOM and determination was the heritage of defeat: the Cardinal machine played as a unit to defeat the Shurtleff Pioneers in the first home game. Kroehler Field had been turned into a quagmire by a lashing rain which made open play impossible. Consequently punting was of double importance: and su- periority in this respect enabled North Central to win a grimly fought battle. Kerth ended a scoring drive in the second quarter, with two six- yard plunges, and Pyle, disregard- ing the slippery pigskin, kicked from placement for the winning margin. A few moments later Tallman, a Shurt- leff man, ran forty yards to the one- yard line. A touchdown resulted, but failure to kick goal left the Pioneers facing a one-point deficit that proved their undoing. Father Neptune's sus- tained land attack in the second half frustrated the efforts of the gridders. IOHNSON Neither t e a m managed to get within the oppo- nent's thirty-yard line and the final whistle found but a handful of spec- tators left to cheer the dispirited ef- f o r t s o f t h e soaked players. DOENIER MANNING 107 QI' RAZAITIS KOSTER FISHER THE annual re- newal of the Cardinals' oldest grid rivalry again proved the most sensational and best played ofthe season's games. North Central pitted the slashing drives of Kerth. Massier, and LAKE FOREST 13 NORTH CENTRAL 20 Smith, against the superlative pass- ing of Captain Stralko of Lake Forest. The result was one tense moment after another for the large Homecoming crowd. Massier scored in the first quarter after several clever plays. After sev- eral more threats, however, Lake Forest dampened the jubilation with a scoring pass. North Central scored twice in the third quarter. It was not until the middle of the last period that the Gold Coasters progressed beyond their own twenty-yard line. At this point a succession of passes cut the Cardinal lead in half. The waning minutes were spent in a fran- tic and successful attempt to beat down a desperate Gold Coast aerial barrage. The game was a struggle of two offenses. North Central col- lected twenty first downs while Lake Forest made eleven, all but two being from passes. WHEATON 7 NORTH CENTRAL 26 S usual Wheaton presented a defense that time and again broke up promising North Central drives. The Crusaders twice threat- ened to score as the result of Cardi- nal fumbles. Cn the first occasion they lost six yards in four attempts from the ten-yard line, but gaining the ball again they passed to a touchdown. Incidentally this was the second time that Wheaton has scored in six North Central games. Smith enjoyed a field day at the Cru- saders' expense, making three per- sonally conducted touchdown tours. Three of his snaky jaunts resulted in twenty-, thirty-, and fifty-five-yard advances. Massier scored the fourth touchdown from the ten-yard line. North Central was penalized heavily. three of the Crusaders' six first downs being gained in this manner. The Cardinals made twenty first downs, most of them in midfield. Q W. mr s Q' f xx K .

This was particu- larly gratifying, for not only were f n NORTHERN STATE TEACHERS 6 NORTH CENTRAL 19 the "Pedagogues" previously unde- feated, but they had tied the Cardi- nal teams in 1929 and '30. In no game did the Cardinal line show to better advantage, for they stopped Mustapha and Pace, all-state stars, on all but one occasion. Likewise the backfield served with distinction, each member collaborating in drives that enabled Kerth to plunge short distances for touchdowns. The Teachers' only serious threat came in the second period when a pass enabled them to tie the count mom- entarily. North Central scored in the first, second and third periods, and then were content to protect their lead. The game can be summed up in first downs, of which North Cen- tral made fifteen and De Kalb six. 0 r . 110 ALIGUSTANA 2 NORTH CENTRAL O AFTER two years of overwhelm- ing defeat, the Augustana Vik- ings invaded Kroehler Field and de- fended their goal so stoutly, that for the first time North Central's offense was powerless. This defeat sent the Cardinals from second to fifth place in the conference rating, and de- prived them of the services of Fisher, Kerth, and Smith. The fickle lady, "Dame Fortune" turned a sour face on the Cardinals as two successive punts were blocked to give the Vik- ings a safety.

DOENIER Center Forward Captain ESPITE their failure to retain the cov- eted conference championship, the bas- ketball team of 1932 was admittedly one of the strongest and most brilliant ever produced at North Central College. It was composed of veterans whose methodical per- fection of attack made each game strongly remindful of a professional exhibition. Space does not permit the use of the many superla- tives and adjectives which would best de- scribe their many great performances, but suffice it to say, that no team in Cardinal his- tory has ever been more capable of spectac- ular and effective passing and floor play. The team was captained by Otto Kerth, a burly center, whose greatest skill was em- ployed in taking enemy rebounds from the backboard. Kerth dropped back to a guard position after the tip-off, and while he sel- dom shot, he usually contributed five or six points a game. Dubbed Hthe Magician" by Millikin fans, Harold Manning was the team's most spectac- ular player. Manning scored over four hundred points in four years, and at the same time gained a reputation as the most Q""N- Mm- H. MANNING R. MASSIER Forward Guard sensational dribbler and passer in Illinois col- legiate circles. A leading scorer as a junior, Lloyd Doen- ier proved a capable running mate for Man- ning. Often termed "lucky," Doenier scored consistently on seemingly impossible shots. A hair-trigger muscular reaction, and a deft skill in passing, made him an important coq in the squads team play as well. Lack of height, rather than of skill, forced Delly Brewe to play a substitute role. For four years the midget forward was the team's most accurate shot, and his peculiar delivery never failed to baffle opponents. Failure to win a regular position never affected Brewe's play or his spirit of co-operation. Russell McLaughlin seemed to love the personal contact his guard position afforded. Scorning safety-first methods, the tow-head hounded his man with disconcerting persist- ency. While the Scotchman's defensive rec- ord was impressive, he will be particularly remembered for his game winning baskets at Lake Forest. Rudolph Massier, a junior, was usually picked to guard the oppositiorfs most feared R. MCLAUGHLIN D. BREWE Forward Forward scorer. While a defensive star, Massier scored consistently. The "Flying Dutch- man" should provide the 1933 team with cap- able and inspirational leadership. Everett Shoop was the team's only sopho- more and also its tallest man. His height was used to advantage, not only on the tip- off, but under the basket as well. His decep- tive left-handed shot was a distinct asset to the team. The season opened with North Central winning from American College and Ar- mour Tech: a pair of non-conference foes. The first conference victory was gained at De Kalb where the Cardinals maintained an early lead to outscore the teachers by five points. Elmhurst and Wheaton were added to the string of victims in fairly easy games. Handicapped by the small floor, the Cardin- als experienced difificulty in winning at Lake Forest, and only effective stalling enabled them to gain a winning margin in the final minutes. A crowd that taxed the capacity of the Held house watched the Cardinals down Millikin in one of the greatest exhibitions ever staged by a North Central team. Milli- kin was completely outclassed and scored but three field goals. A smooth path became suddenly rough at Macomb, where the E. SHOOP E. DAUBERMAN Center Manager Western teachers shot with abandon to sink twenty-five goals. While the subject of the game is painful, the idiosyncrasy of the cage sport can here be noted for De Kalb trounced Macomb 37 to 15 a few nights later. The fol- lowing night saw the Cardinal hopes com- pletely deflated when Carthage, the ultimate champions, won 31-24 in a well played game. A week later the A'Cards" regained their winning ways in a slow game with Elm- hurst. The final home contest saw Lake Forest defeated in a game that was fast des- pite the low score. lncidentally it was North Centra1's seventh consecutive victory over the Gold Coasters in four years. A revamped Millikin team sank a brace of free throws in the final minute to win 25 to 23 at Decatur. The season was closed at Wheaton, where the "Cards" employed a stalling offense to gain an eleven point margin in the second half. This record of eight victories and three defeats in I. I. A. C. competition gave North Central a .727 percentage and fourth place in the Hnal standings. The season was also virtuous for uncovering numerous freshmen of ability. Bieber's yearlings were defeated but once in eleven games. - wx 4- -- x Y lr 4-.yxll XNQQ' "- 'fd l 1 ,..-.X xi 'X lun fl E- Nr YI '- U . - R 5 I l K 3Xq.v.4.. hkfgelp 'f 'QA . 4: N ' 5 n J ' P, 'NF . 1 ' .Q N G ' :WLM ..

ALLANSON WHILE the 1931 outdoor season was not the most successful enjoyed by a Cardinal track team in recent years, it did provide several noteworthy performances. Five col- lege records were bettered before the "thinly-clads" hung up their spikes for the season. Siebert amazed with record breaking performances in the 220- and 440-yard dashes. Hinders bettered his own marks in the discus and pole vault, and missed a new mark in the broad jump by one quar- ter inch. The mile relay team won the state indoor championship and then set a new mark in its first ap- pearance outdoors. From that point it was a disappointment however, and its defeat and disqualification in the N. I. I. A. C. meet cost a cham- pionship. The Cardinal squad was well rounded with strength in all events. I-Iinders led the scoring with 92 points, accumulated in the shot put, discus, pole vault, and broad jump. L. HINDERS N. QuANTocK Siebert scored 70M points in the dashes and relay and Captain Baum- gartner accounted for 56M in the dashes and low hurdles. These stars were aided in point accumula- tion by Schafer in the hurdles, Hein- horst and Yoh in the high jump and javelin, Vanauskus and Quantock in the 440, Compton and Iohnson in the 880, and Lemke, Allanson, and Hornback in the distance runs. After placing second in the state indoor championships, the Cardinals opened the outdoor season with high hopes, only to find competition in this section unusually keen. The opening meet was a triangular af- fair in which North Central scored a victory over Elmhurst and De Kalb on a rain-swept track. The follow- ing Saturday found the Cardinals at their best to repeat their second place rating of the previous year, in the Armour Tech invitational meet at Stagg Field. Teams representing sixteen colleges and universities com- H. COMPTON V. BAUMGARTNER E. I-IEINHORST I. JOHNSON Captain peted in this event which was won by Lake Forest with 73 points. North Central scored 70 points to place ahead of the Milwaukee Teachers, Loyola University, Elm- hurst, and the University of Chi- cago. The following week-end found Lake Forest repeating its victory in the N. I. I. A. C. meet by scoring an upset in a record break- ing relay after the Cardinals had maintained a slight lead up to the final event. Not only was the Cardinal quartet defeated, but it was disqualified for fouling, and this allowed Elmhurst to edge into second place with a Z-point margin. The chilly breezes of the lake front proved more benumbing than invig- orating, and no records fell as North Central defeated Loyola in the only dual meet of the season. THE 1932 track season was ofli- cially opened under the arc lights of Merner Fieldhouse with Morton Iunior College providing the opposition. An easy victory was the result as Morton's scoring was re- stricted to three seconds and five thirds. Loyola University provided much sterner competition the follow- ing week. For the sixth time in as many meets the Iesuits pressed North Central to the limit before conceding the victory. In this case the relay race decided the meet and provided the biggest athletic thrill of the year. The first Loyola runner took the lead, and so well did his mates bandy the baton that not until the final lap could Compton, run- ning a spectacular race as anchor man, edge in front to win the race by three yards and the meet by two C. YoH M. SIEBERT I. I-IORNBACK points. Armour Tech was defeated in fairly easy style. This victory enabled the Cardinals to keep intact for another season the record of never having been defeated in dual competition on the Fieldhouse track. The State indoor championship meet was again held at the Merner Fieldhouse, and again North Cen- tral finished in second place, this time only a half point ahead of the favored Bradley team, the defending champions. This showing was due to the Cardinals' general balance, and is to be considered very good as they won no individual champion- ships and were deprived of several points by the absence of Compton. Records in the pole vault, half mile, one and two mile runs were bettered. The Monmouth quartet also estab- lished a record for the eight lap re- lay as it was the first time that dis- tance had been run. Redd of Brad- ley, an Olympic athlete, scored twenty-two points. Captain Hin- ders, with six points, and Schafer with seven, were high point men for North Central. Normal University won four firsts and enough place points to establish a new high total of 44 points in winning the team trophy. All in attendance voted the affair very successful and North Central will again be hosts to the conference's indoor teams next sea- son. g Bonnema CMa11:1gerJ, Richert, VVo1'nei', Hornback fCaptainJ, Allnnson, Attig, Bergstresser, Yun, Beese, Schuck CAssistant Managerj CROSS COUNTRY , ROSS COUNTRY a c t i v i t y started this year with three let- ter men back from the previous sea- son's squad. This meant that new material had to be found among the ranks of the freshman class. That class was productive of such men as Worner, an ex-N. H. S. trackman, Haag of Aurora, and others who proved of exceptional support to Captain I-lornback. Wheaton took the first meet from the North Central harriers by a score of 24 to 31. Next the Cardinal tracksters journeyed to Elmhurst to participate in a triangular meet with Elmhurst and Milwaukee Normal. Hornback and his crew took second place honors, the score being: Mil- waukee 11, North Central 47, and Elmhurst 51. On Homecoming day a thrilling race provided added ex- citement to an overflow crowd. Loy- ola University furnished the opposi- tion. Hornback and Worner fin- ished first and second respectively, but the Loyola competitors clinched the next five places to win 25 to 30. Wheaton repeated its early sea- son tactics to win again, on its campus course, 19 to 36. This did not discourage the boys, however, for they came through strong in an- other triangular meet at Loyola Uni- versity, to win second place. lt was its final meet of the season and it proved to have enough stamina and spirit to give Loyola and Elm- hurst a run to the tape. Hornback finished second, with Worner third. The score was Loyola 36, North Central 41, Elmhurst 47. Qther men who greatly aided in making the season a success are: Van, Bergstresser, Attig, Allanson, Haag, and Beese. We predict next year as exceptionally promising.

CORRALLO Second Base First Base Captain HE 1931 baseball season could hardly be called a success from the standpoint of games won and lost. In only three of ten games were the Cardinals successful in outscor- ing their opponents. The failure to win cannot be charged against the offense, as the Cards mauled the offerings of opposing, pitchers for an average of ten hits per game, and were shut out but once during the season. Lack of reserve pitching W N ' - if. qw' ij' , A, ' .,fa?sfi"aif.MEw.,.L.nm I. I-IILLEL C. KALIFFMAN Second Base Fielder strength and occasional costly errors in fielding finesse combined to swing the margin of victory away from the Cards in most cases. At no time were the Cardinals considered a weak team, and upon only one occasion were they convincingly defeated. The season was noteworthy as it marked North Central's debut in the Northern Illinois Baseball League and also provided two rous- ing twelve-inning struggles. North Central's showing in the League was anything but en- couraging as the end found them sharing the cellar posi- tion with Elmhurst, Lake Forest nosed out Wheaton in a close race for the flag, and incidentally extended her long winning streak over North Central by turning the Cardinals back twice during the season. N. KLUMP R. MASSIER Catcher Pitcher Following two non-conference games, North Central twice bowed in defeat on muddy diamonds at Mount Morris and Wheaton. A large crowd, assembled for the an- nual College Day game with Lake Forest, was treated to a spectacular twelve-inning fray. For eight innings it appeared that North Cen- tral was really to take the Gold Coasters in a baseball encounter. With four runs acquired in the early innings, Massier pitched in crafty fashion, al- lowing never a run until the ninth inning. At this point the jinx that has been North Central's guiding angel in Lake Forest games for five years put in a tardy appear- ance, Massier suddenly found himself unable to get the ball past the Gold Coast B. OESTERLE E. RosAR Catcher Fielder batters, and before Schum could stop the carnage, four runs had scored to tie the count. Un- daunted the Cardinals came back in the last half to fill the bases with no one out. At this point Davies smashed a ground ball to third base. One of the rarest plays in baseball resulted with the ball being shot to the catcher, who relayed it to first in time to complete a sparkling E. SCHUM G. SMITH K. STURGEON P. SLEEZER Pitcher Pitcher double play. ln the twelfth round the Cards' defense cracked and Lake Forest scored twice to win. Almost as discouraging was the Wheaton game. Here the Cardinals scored five runs in the ninth to knot the event, only to have the Crusaders eventually win by 7 and 6 in twelve innings. In passing, it might be said that the ninth, rather than the tradi- tional seventh, was the eventful in- ning for the 1931 team. After memorial day Captain lud- son Erne, a second baseman, Grant Short Stop Manager Smith and Earl Rosar, outfielders, discarded the Cardinal flannels for the last time. Rosar incidentally led the team in hitting, with a .395 aver- age for the season. Lloyd Doenier, playing third base, was selected to captain the 1932 team. Sam Corrallo, the veteran first baseman, Iack Hillel, a second sacker, and Kenneth Stur- geon, whose broken ankle prevented his playing after the Lake Forest game, were the remaining iniielders to be awarded letters. Oesterle, a freshman, divided the catching duties with Klump, a junior. Rudy Massier and Ernie Schum split the pitching assign- ments. Curtis Kauffman, an experienced man, and Gil- bert Larson, a fast traveling freshman, rounded out the outfield with Rosar and Smith. Paul Sleezer served in the capacity of senior manager. TENNIS AND INTERCLASS BASKETBALL THOUGH called a minor sport tennis is an attractive game. Aided by the hard courts at Heath- erton and the inside court of the field house, the game has struck up a great interest in the college. In spring, fall, and winter the game at- tracts both men and women-both from the hope of varsity position and as a form of exercise. Two dis- advantages meet the tennis player: there are not enough courts to han- dle all those desiring to play, and too many balls are lost in the pond at Heatherton, particularly if the player thinks the game is fashioned on the order of baseball. North Central College boasts a comprehensive program of intra- mural athletics. Such a program is Hnanced because it is believed that a love for outdoor life and athletics in general will be fostered and result in benefits that extend far beyond the actual college years. The result is that games and sports of a competi- tive nature are largely substituted for formal exercise of the gymnastic type. Many students meet their physical training requirements by en- tering into organized games: the value of such an arrangement is proven by the fact that a majority of them continue to compete after the requirements have been satisfied. The popularity of the intramural athletic leagues is shown by the fact that eighty-five per cent of the stu- dents engage in one or another form of competition during the year. During the past years leagues were formed, schedules played out, and trophies awarded in basketball, baseball, touch-football, and soccer. These leagues were composed of five teams representing the four classes and the Seminary. In the case of basketball, two leagues were formed, known as the "A" and HB" divi- sions. The schedules consisted in round-robins in which each team meets the other teams twice. Final standings are devised on a percent- age basis computed from the aver- ages of the games won and lost. Additional interest is maintained in the league sports because of the fact that "all-campus" teams are picked for the Chronicle upon the comple- tion of the schedules. In addition to the league sports, tournaments are held in boxing, wrestling and hand- ball. lnterclass swimming and track meets precede the varsity seasons, while tennis attracts attention in the fall when the racquet wielders battle for the various cups in singles, dou- bles and class competition. Basketball is perhaps the most popular, and attracts the largest fol- lowing of the intramural sports. The class of 1932 extended its reign to the third successive year in the "A" division. This team headed by such veterans as Schafer, Iohnson, Raza- itis, Haist, Claus, and Lenz, was de- tContinued on Page 1341 N ' MT TENNIS MEN'S INTERCLASS BASKETBALL .,,i ,K , .,.. 1 Richard Keough, Andrews, Domm, Coach Eigenbrodt, Robert Keough, Pepiot VARSITY TENNIS THE record of the Men's Tennis team for the 1931 season was four victories, two defeats, and one tie. North Central defeated DeKalb in the first meet, which was played on the Field House court, 3 to 1. Elm- hurst lost to Eigenbrodt's men 2 to 4. Wheaton administered the only decisive defeat of the season on April 22 at Naperville. The score was 4 to 2. Cn May Znd North Central de- feated Lake Forest, here, 4 to 2. The return of Harold Pepiot strengthened the North Central team considerably. On May 4th the boys turned in the best meet of the season. They beat Wheaton 4 to 2, at Wheaton. Pepiot and Andrews, playing second doubles, won the deciding match from Carlson and Chamberlain, 6-3, 3-6, 8-6. At Elmhurst on May 13th North Central split the score 3 to 3. The last meet was lost to DeKalb, at DeKalb, 2 to 3. Robert and Richard Keough were runners-up in the doubles of the Northern Illinois sectional tourna- ment, and Harold Pepiot was runner- up in the singles. They also repre- sented North Central at the Little Nineteen tournament held at Knox College. The Keough brothers lost to Baymiller and Taylor of Bradley, 9-11, 2-6, and Pepiot lost to Church of McKendree, 2-6, 8-10, in the first round. DOMM Pizplor FALL TENNIS TOURNAMENT THE fall tennis tournaments aroused more interest and included more contestants this year than in any previous year. The participants played with greater enthusiasm and enjoyed themselves thoroughly. In the Dean Kirn Trophy tourna- ment for non-varsity girls Margaret DeVeny was the winner over a field of twelve entrants. Esther Mather was the runner-up, losing the finals 6-2, 5-7, 6-3. Vera Umbreit and Iune Reninger were defeated in the semi-finals. Margaret DeVeny won the Keough Trophy also, She is the first fresh- man to win this tournament which is made up of varsity girls. Miss De- Veny defeated Ianet Bock by the score of 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 in the finals. The other girls entered were Marie Feik, Vera Umbreit, and Edith Iones. Harold Pepiot won the Rassweiler Trophy which signifies the cham- pionship in men's singles. Domm de- feated Andrews in the semi-finals to enter the finals on Homecoming Day. The champion of 1929 and 1930 won 6-1, 3-6, 6-3, 6-O. The mixed doubles tournament for the Edward and David Rall Trophies was won by Ianet Bock and Clifford Andrews. The winners defeated Marie Feik and Frederick Neill, and Margaret DeVeny and Sheldon Domm to enter the finals against Vera Umbreit and Harold Pepiot who likewise had won two matches. The final match was close, as were most of the others, the score being 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.

The sophomores. with a record of five wins and three losses, finished in the runner-up berth. The juniors ended in third position and the frosh and seminary brought up the rear. Curiously enough this order of finish also held good in the "B" division, where the seniors won with a record of seven victories and one defeat, and the juniors, defending champions, could do no better than finish in third place. Headed by Dallas Paul, the league's best pitcher, the juniors won the bunting in baseball. The third year men won seven games and were tied once by the last place freshmen.

No less credit should be accorded them because of the fact that most of their victories were acquired by from 134 Page 128l forfeit. The green also waved vic- torious following the finals of the wrestling meet. Champions were picked in five weights, and two of these were freshmen while the other classes contributed one each. Inci- dentally this was the first wrestling tournament held in four years, and it was so successful, and so well re- ceived that it is planned to make it an intercollegiate sport next year. Four of the five "groan and grunt" champions won their titles on falls. The winners include: Crews '35, 135 pounds: Patterson '34, 1415 poundsg johnson '32, 155 pounds: Reichen- backer '35, 175 pounds: and Stiles '33, heavyweight.

BOARD OF CONTROL WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION NSATISFIED with letting the men monopolize the athletic department the women of the college have organized with the purpose of stimulating an interest in athletics, achievement and sportsmanship. It elects its own board of control of four of- ficers, the physical director and the heads of the various sports. It creates its own con- stitution and some system whereby letters and pins may be obtained. The long list of activities may include: a handball tournament, an interclass swimming meet, the W. A. A.-Alumni luncheon which follows the Alumni-Senior soccer battle on Homecoming day: the furnishing of the W, A. A. room in Nicholas Hall: basketball, baseball, soccer, and tennis tournaments: and the annual May Fete. The old point sys- tem of awards was changed this year and letters and pins are now given on an activity basis. The final reward is presented to the senior girls who are most skilled in all sports, are good scholars, and are active in the as- sociation. At present the membership of the organization numbers around sixty-eight. The annual May Fete was given last year before the largest crowd of its history. In the midst of pomp and pageantry Mother Goose held sway with a may-pole dance and the Garden of Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary. The event outshone all previous attempts, and the new queen of the May was crowned in the blazing glory of the last rays of the setting sun. The girls observe a special week of Health Emphasis during the year with special post- ers and instructions and restrictions. The Dean Kirn Tennis cup was awarded to Mar- garet DeVeny, a promising freshman tennis player. Most of the other cups and trophies are held by the senior class.

Two other matches were scheduled but had to be called off because of inclement weather. In the dual meets Captain Ellen Larsen, Ianet Bock, Edith Iones, Adlyn Eigenbrodt and Marie Eeik played singles in just that order, while Ellen and "Ian" played first doubles and i'Edie" and "Ike" second.

North Central was represented by Ellen Larsen, who played singles, and "Edie" and "Ian" who played doubles. The following week the same three girls played in the state tournament at Millikin University. Ellen drew Wheaton's best and lost in the first round, while "Edie" and "Ian" went to the semi-finals only to lose to Blackburn, Ellen and Adlyn are lost to the team through graduation: but many good prospects have been sighted in the freshman class. With these promising additions, with three veterans, the new indoor court and our coach, Miss Tanner, we have reason to anticipate for 1932 a suc- cessful year for Women's Tennis.,...,y...,....Q.. ., .......Q.,s...... ..... ..

But a suffragette speech on this occasion is as apropos as an anti- saloon meeting in Kansas. Feminine equality was granted to our mothers, superiority is conceded to us, and the total elimination of man should take place in 1952, or roughly, about the first year of the millenium. It must have been a woman who first breathed that sweet sentiment re- dolent with the fragrance of honey- suckle and hydrogen sulphide that graduation is not a conclusion but a commencement of a deeper, fuller life that lies beyond. But all fires burn out at last, and no "finish is placed on an episode with- out a bit of sorrow at the finality of disruption and departure.

Life is but an empty dream." Ours has been a unique class. Some of us delved into science, oth- ers majored in snap courses and wrote seminars.

From the south to the north gate dis- satisfaction had split the once solid ranks of the reigning party, the Hoopitups. The effect of the gen- eral depression was beginning to tell. Venus had not had chewing-gum for weeks, and Diana's social position was waning for lack of cold cream, rice powder, and pretzels. ln the south and mid-west the discord was the greatest. Armies of unemployed cried against the staggering Hoopi- tup taxation and they were rising on a wave of Ballyhooism. To add to the mess Jupiter had failed to save the immortal banking situation and quotations on Heavenly Mansion Shingles sunk to a new low. There was a movement on foot for concili- ation with the mortal world to pacify a growing anti-godly feeling, and a proposal to eliminate arrows and darts. Iupiter, the President of the Im- mortals, was sorely troubled. Elec- tion time was approaching and his position was precarious. The grand old party must re-instate itself in the hearts and homes of the immortals. The Sky Pilot called a party session. Atlas was for throwing over the whole mess of world relations in true Hoopitup style. Vulcan thought to stimulate trade by the introduction of the new Ford into the sky. Mer- cury would remedy the Heavenly ills by universal brotherhood and love in the hearts of all immortals. lt was obvious that Iupiter must ride the fence if he would prevent a party split. Powerful were the forces arrayed against the Hoopitups, Beezlebub, the Ballyhooist was storming the clouds with a platform favoring the return of light and undefiled nectar, unrestricted India Rubber, free flops for the unemployed, and restrictions on mortal relations. Obviously con- ditions called for a coup d' etat. A new platform was needed and Iupiter knew it. He resorted to the chain cloudwork to proclaim the new Hoo- pitup position: first, glorification of the individual: second, free distribu- tion of Sunday School literature: third, preservation of the working man's honorg fourth, government supervision and subsidation of the pretzel producers, Election morning brought a sunny day. But towards noon the sky clouded with the smoke arising from cigars with which Beezlebub had pur- chased his votes. Thousands crowded the polling places and the golden paved streets. In the tenth ward Vulcan, Hoopitup, was discov- ered intimidating the negro voters and in the riot that followed he was shot in the leg. Meanwhile Bacchus, another Iupiter cohort, taking advan- tage of the confusion. stuffed the bal- lot box and decided the whole elec- tion. Iupiter was returned to office. Beezlebub thrown out of Olympia for buying votes, the unemployed went back to work, and pious liter- ature flooded the country. Olympia was peaceful.

It was a dangerous lethargy. He had never heard the rumblings of war, which, faint at first, had grown loud on all sides, south. east, west, and north, and threatened to disrupt his kingdom. But now that the danger was nearer it disturbed his ease and he must incline himself to hear the booming of guns and the shouting of vigor- ous men. The act was his last. Fear darted to his heart. He looked around the drowsy room. There was the Old Guard as steady and valiant as ever: but their ranks were thinning and a once surprising vitality was waning. Rumors had Filtered into him through his stronghold, of a strange and pa- gan people that had penetrated and settled the western edge of his kingdom. He had put aside the rumors, thinking the ruggedness of his own people able to absorb and change a barbarous race.-It happened as he thus lay reflecting:-a boulder shattered the win- dow of his chamber and a lusty voice broke his last bit of composure with a "Tirra- Lirraf' and, "the place is ours." Desperately panting the old King died. VICTOR OPTHCAL COMPANY Specialists in Fitting Glasses 28 Fox Street-On Fox Promenade DR, IOHNSON, Optometrist PHONE 4378 AURORA, ILLINOIS Oliver J.

C. SOLQIVIGN must have had a spat with his spouse last night. Some- thing, at least, must have gripped his spleen. I-Ie rarely now wastes any words on me-my hauteur vexes him so. But today as he rumbled in his chariot with his entourage of sycho- phants he glowered at me and growled, "go to the ant, thou slug- gard: consider her ways and be wise." I knew it wasn't original with him. I rolled leisurely out of hammock, yawned, lit a Murad, and leaned against a teribinth. Nicking off a bit of its rosin, I flicked it in the direc- tion of his chariot. Those wheels are certainly getting frightfully dished and I wanted to tell him that they should to the cartwright with his brains, but I held my peace. It is too pitiful to debunk him to his face and in public. I'Ie's in hot water enough these days. The nobles are grumbling un- der the burden of excessive taxation and the Levites are murmuring loudly against his toleration of the worship of Ashteroth. Several months ago the King published an edition of his no- torious aphorisms for free distribu- tion to retrench himself in the popular favor. In the October Hludean Icono- clast" I attacked their sophistry rather caustically, and old Solomon would now like to proscribe me: to see me squirming and pinned to the earth with a javelin thrust through me. I happen to have in my posses- sion two manuscripts in his own hand- writing that, to say the least, would greatly embarrass him if revealed. And he knows it and knows that I know it. One is a voluptious love lyric and the other is a philosophical treatise on defeatism and hedonism. He wrote both of them for his favor- ite wife, the daughter of Pharaoh. who later sent them to her mother, Queen Tahpenes. When I was in Thebes last summer tutoring her grandson, Genubath, on I-Iebraism, the youngster brought me the docu- ments and I spent a jolly hour trans- lating them for him. Taphenes heard of it and, being somewhat of a philo- logist herself, agreed that if I would help her do the stuff in Egyptian hierglyph I could have these Ara- maic originals. I jumped at the offer. brought them back to Ierusalem, and have recently deposited them with my friend Ieoboam, the rebel. The King must now suspect this himself for he has had my private files rifled on the trumped up charge that he smelled sedition. I-Ie now knows the papers are not in my personal pos- session. I am sure, too, he realizes that if he abducts or proscribes me it will be the signal for the expose. And so I continue at liberty, eating and drinking and making merry. Really down in my heart I feel for old King Solomon. I-Ie is preoccupied with the distressing responsibilities of keeping his kingdom from splitting into fragments. I-le must feel terribly embittered at having been forced to purchase a national solidarity at the expense of the sacrifice of his dream of a universal pantisocracy in which he so ideally conceived each indi- vidual to be a beautifully ordered microcosm. ln those halycon days subsequent to the establishment of a brilliant court and the erection of a magnificent temple the national and religious consciousness was intensi- fied to the point of ecstacy. lt was in this hour that Solomon looked for the transformation of his subjects from a state of narrow provincialism to one of cosmopolitan mindedness. The pomp and the glory was in- tended to act as a catalytic agent in- ducing the development of a univer- sal solvent, but instead it is crys- tallized into a matrix for self-suHfi- ciency. His real nemesis lay in his utter self confidence which really amounted to that benevolent type of egotism and conceit. He was impa- tient of the delay that would have been occasioned in surrounding him- self with statesmen whom he had taken into his confidence and inspired with his ideals. Too late he realized his inability to manage the situation single handed. Distraught as he is by the conflict of personal with immediate public duty he turns for surcease from life's perplexities to introspective fantasies. But to admit it to the world would mortify him beyond words. He is worthy of some tribute to his name though, and if I were drafting a con- stitution for some ideal common- wealth I would incorporate the spur- ious Ecclesiastes verbatim, inter- sperse the articles with stanzas from these clandestine Canticles, and even save a place for the proverbs, though they would have to be satisfied at being relegated to the appendix where they could taken discreetly with a grain of salt. How ironical fate is in erecting our memorials! -PAUL STEPHAN. 187 THE Knights of King Cuthbert were getting a square meal off the Round Table. All were quiet save the Cavaliers. They were making a slopping noise as they yodeled at their soup. Suddenly the King rapped on the table and a waiter appeared. 'iBy my troth," boomed the King. "From whence cometh the eggs? They're aged." "Ch, most noble sir," exclaimed the waiter, "you must be mistaken. Those eggs were sent from the coun- try this morning." "From what country, knave?" roared the King. "Take them out." The King then turned to Garret and said, "It is growing late, Sir Garret. What is the hour?" The King was feeling good. Garret, who was feeling better. pulled out his Ingersoll and said: "It is Thursday." "Cds Bodkinsf' replied Cuthbert. "I should have gone to bed an hour agof' One by one the knights dozed olf. Finally when all were sleeping, the servants came in and snulfed the candles. All was quiet in the hall. The moon cast a weird beam of light through the barred window and all was still. Then a scream rent the air. Immediately half of the knights rolled off their chairs. The noise of their armor hitting the floor sounded like colliding Fords. When the lights were lit, the knights could be seen hiding under the table. The King had crawled under the table- cloth. A lady burst into the room and asked: "Where is King Cuthbert?" 'iI'Iere I am," answered the King peeping out from under the cloth. "What do you want?" "Oh, Sir," she cried, "a dragon by the name of Ginsberg has taken my fur coat. Give me a knight to help regain it?" "Sure," said the King. "Take all day if you want to. "Sir, this is no time for fooling. I need help." "Very well," then said the King. "All those who wish to go with the lady say 'aye'." Not a sound was heard. "Well," said the King, "silence al- ways gives consent. The whole bunch of you go."

Beneath his scrutiny the once familiar walls of gray and the long green carpet were strange: he became dizzy. The silence penetrated his usual bravado and as he stood there he knew his guilt. Should he plead insanity? NO! perhaps his last act Of acknowledgement would be his salvation. That he should be here!-Diligently he had founded himself in the favor of the faculty and students. Had he valued his position aright? For four years his commanding figure had inspired the efforts of numerous student Organizations. It seemed impossible that his dignity and pride should have suffered this last ignominious act, which seemingly harm- less at first had grown only too odious and discovered to him the wrath of his friends. Was it a bad dream? Yet there on his Own hands he saw the incriminating evidence- green paint. Silently he bowed his head and heard the awful words: i'YOur contemptible sin of presumption has merited the disfavor of this board. Leave before our wrath en- larges out upon your sentence Of probation." Dispairingly he turned. went from the presa ence of the accusing eye, and into the outer darkness, dejected and alone.
