COLLEGE is the heritage of youth. From
the east and West they Come and live
together. 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

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.

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
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.

THE SOPHCDMORE CLASS
PERMIT us to present the Sopho-
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
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.

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.

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.

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-
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-
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.

HAS the utility of the Christian
religion in student life de-

belief they would present their long

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

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

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 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

tinction in the world of affairs, as

In order to become a member of

HE making of an annual is an
interesting affair which this
year's staff has enjoyed. 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
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.

PERHAPS no student organization
at North Central enjoys greater
popularity than the college band.
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-
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-
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-

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
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.

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
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

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
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.

OES any one still think that
history is merely a relic of the
past for bewhiskered and bespec-
tacled old scholars to pore over? 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
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

the History Club to stimulate a
greater and a more vivid interest in
the study of the past.

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-
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.

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-
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
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.

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-

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-
The law of life, man is not Man as
we hope through the intelligent use
of consecrated power to help some-
one achieve Christian personality.

for which to strive. Needless to say

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

movie stars to be found in heaven it
would not produce any greater ex-

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.
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.

that brings forth a beautiful autumn
day the student body goes on dress

friends and graduates of North Cen-

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!"

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?

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
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

bases his coaching upon sound fun-
damentals, with the result that he in-
variably produces a strong team for

some fifty potential gridders re-
porting to Coach Fisher and his staff.
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.

were named on several honorary
selections, while Captain-elect Mas-
sier, Stiles, and Dillon were likewise

and poor judgment, the result of in-

the other hand, proved themselves
opportunists in the extreme. They

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.

that the Gold Coasters progressed

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.

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.

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. Twice North Central
missed for touchdowns by the nar-
rowest margin: Doenier, catching a
pass, lost balance and fell with a
clear field ahead: Smith slipped mo-
mentarily and was caught as he
tried to elude the safety man: and

O. KERTH L. DOENIER
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
H. MANNING R. MASSIER
sensational dribbler and passer in Illinois col-
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
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 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
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
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.

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-
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
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-

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

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

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
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

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
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

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-

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-

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
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.
These same freshmen who likewise
provided the upset in basketball, won
the championship in touch-football.
No less credit should be accorded
them because of the fact that most
of their victories were acquired by
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

The seniors rounded out a very
prosperous year by winning the
track title, and contributing Harold

and Art Koster, title winner in hand-
ball for singles and sharer with jack

women of the college have organized
with the purpose of stimulating an interest
in athletics, achievement and sportsmanship.

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

The annual invitational tourna-
ment was held here May 22 and 23.
Teams from Millikin, Mt. Morris,
Wheaton, Crane, Chicago Normal,
and Elmhurst were entered. 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.

and swept the room with a piercing

and came to swift attention before his

passed down the row of uniformed

he threw off his hat and coat, and
took off his tie and collar. Turning
around he faced the waiting men.
Picking his man he firmly advanced to

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. And as the
gay spring nights have passed with
the freshness of fair hair blowing in
the wind, so our college days have
been numbered until now we must say
with the Argo garbage man-his foot
upon his native dump:
"Youth fades-time passes.
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. Some of us got low marks
and some got high, and since the for-
mer were rationalists and the latter
hypocrites-quotations on strait A's
sank to a new low.
They have been a good four years.
We have eaten and drunk and slept-

THE GLYMPIAN ELECTION
OLYMPIA was in turmoil. 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
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
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
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

HE King was a temperate man, yet he
was drowsy. He had been drowsy for
the last ten years. 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.

An Excerpt from a Scribc-2's Diary for 983 B. 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
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
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
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!
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?
"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
"Cds Bodkinsf' replied Cuthbert.
"I should have gone to bed an hour
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-
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
"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."

HE steady accusing eye of the chairman
was upon him as he stood before the
discipline board. 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.
