Among the things that the council lists as accomplishments for this year are the estab-
lishment of a better pep program and an award for cheer leaders, student representation
on the curriculum committee, revision of student election procedure, the establishment
of a Second-hand book exchange, and the beginning of a movement for the improvement
of commuter facilities. The events of the opening Week of school did much to get the
new students acquainted with North Central and its traditions.
In October the Council held a retreat at which they outlined the year's program.
This was unprecedented and may become a regular event.

The Athletic Board of Control is composed of five faculty members: Coaches Fisher
and Bieber, Miss Tanner, and Professors Domm and Erffmeyerg and three members of
the student body. The student members are the presidents of the Men's and Women's
Athletic Associations and one representative from the Student Council.
In the hands of this group lies North Central's entire athletic program and policy.
Conforming to the high athletic standards of the newly formed Illinois Collegiate Con-
ference and being governed by the board in school policy, North Central has been able
to rank high in intercollegiate athletics Without placing too much emphasis upon this
phase of college life.

Bapst drink a toast from the fire extinguisher to the missing Vice-President Bossert
Poor underclassmenl We wonder what will be your fate. To be deprived of our
assistance in future years is certainly a disastrous stroke. It is with utmost feeling that
we leave you to carry on the work we have begun, to endure the everlasting philosophical
treatises of professors which rocked us to sleep, to get the grades we couldn't, to learn
patience with professors. Mark Twain once said, "When I was fourteen, I often became
disgusted at my father's stupidity, at twenty-one I was amazed what the man had learned
in seven years."
Our achievements are not fundamentally different from other graduating classes.
Every senior group finds its members at the helm of various organizations and participating
in a host of activities, so we are not at all unusual in that respect. We are proud, though,
of the fact that we are composed of as healthy, cultured, and wholesome individual per-
sonalities as ever walked the streets hunting jobs. Our sincere appreciation goes to the
Juniors for their wonderful banquet, supplemented by the concert of modern melodies,
to the Sophomores we extend our sympathies, to the Freshmen we endow our humility,
to the Faculty-our understanding.
Seriously, our sorrow in leaving North Central definitely surpasses yours. In a sense
we're going to be relieved by the passing of curricular duties, by the unburdening of respon-
sibilities which school days inflict. More significant than these, however, are the associa-
tions we have enjoyed in the past. A lot we have taken for granted-intimate friends,
acquaintances, professors, campus-they are at present an inevitable part of ourselves.
We'll miss them, and we hope they miss us.

Bauer Hip pennies to decide the winner of the Junior-Senior Banquet swag.
When the Junior Class files into the vacated Seniors' chapel seats on June 3, we believe
we shall more than compensate for the absence of the great class of '38. Proclaimed by
our advisor last September as the largest Junior Class in history, we can claim quality

In December we Were given an opportunity to play hosts to the Seniors and show them
what we thought of them. But we didn't. We gave them a topping banquet and sent
them home to bed, smiling and happy. A world-weary but relieved banquet committee
closed the doors of the Baker Hotel upon the scene of revelry and followed the crowd home
all the way from St. Charles without once getting lost.
Three years gone and one to go! It takes an incentive like that to spur us onward
because it's really difficult to study on balmy spring days Cwe imaginej. One more year
as carefree students, then we must settle down. Judging from North Central's match-
making reputation this ought not to present much of a problem. Get busy, girls! A
yearis a short time when you're as busy as is friend Cupid.
Well, we've learned that life is real and life is earnest. No one knows what the future
holds. So we'll cross our fingers and barge ahead to be North Central's conservative
element, her pace setters-in other words her Senior Class.

Laying no claims to supremacy, the Sophomore Class nevertheless presents itself as
an excellent example of a typical college class. With an unusual amount of class spirit
and a fine sense of loyalty we have entered into all activities and have carried off honors
with flying colors.
Am lv re resented not only 011 all athletic teams but in the various other and e uallv

important extra-curricular activities, the Sophomores have made and will continue to
make significant contributions to the make-up of North Central.
Specific achievements are always pleasing to the ear, and to satisfy not only that
desire to echo our past achievements but also to be sure that credit is given where credit
is due, a partial list of sophomore victories is proffered. In October the Frosh took a trip
through the creek in a record time of four and one half minutes which temporarily dampened
the ardor of the green tide. Then the flag-rush! The victor is indeterminable. A count
of bruises would be necessary to find the real winner because at the end of the long and
weary slug-fest the Hag still waved mockingly from the top of the pole. Thus we con-
cede a moral victory to both sides.
Putting all daydreams and fond hopes aside, the Sophomore Class will continue to play
the important role it has always played in school life. Because of the spirit displayed by
this aggregation of students in the past, and because of the continuance of those qualities
in present activities, it is not an idle boast for one to predict that the class will be guided
on to greater things in the future.

Somebody yelled "Button. Frosh!", so President Clare, Representative Mayer, Treasurer Lenzner, Vice-
President Oliver, and Secretary Brown oblige. Representative Rall took to the hills.
In September, 1937, one hundred and fifty-five Freshmen made their college debut
at North Central. They showed plenty of pep and spirit even after the Sophomores
pulled them through the muddy DuPage. Competition was keen when the Sophs and
Frosh fought long and hard during the traditional flag rush, finally concluding with neither
side victorious, both sides contented.
Following the Freshman Reception, the class of 1941 felt itself a bigger and more
important part of the college. Oflicers were elected, and the fourth quarter of the college
was dennitely established. The green caps were gladly discarded at Homecoming since
the F rosh felt their distinction no longer necessary. CMoreover, permission' was granted
to do so.j
"Forty-one-ersi' have become outstanding in football, basketball, cross-country,
wrestling, and particularly so on the swimming and track teams. Enthusiasm was shown
by the Freshmen when they published their issue of the Chronicle, and they have proved
themselves able assistants on the staffs of both publications. Play productions have
disclosed hidden talents which will no doubt be brought forth in future productions.
Quote from a yearling: "North Central has given us a new experience, its informality
fascinates us, its tuition frightens us not, its curriculum attracts us, its women-well,
anyway, we're coming back for another year."

The Writer's Club of North Central College is an all-college organization designed to
provide opportunity for any student or faculty member to obtain constructive criticism
of original writings and to observe the various reactions their literary efforts have upon
the Inembers of the club.
This year the Writer's Club, in collaboration with Sigma Tau Delta, organized, edited,
and published the third annual issue of The Cardinal, the writers' magazine of N. C. C.
This publication, compiled by the members of the club under the direction of Professor
Harold E. Wliite. contains the original poems. essays, and short stories written by students.
alumni, and faculty members. A feature of the magazine. introduced for the first time
this year. was the selection of the best student composition submitted to the editors and
the award of a prize to its author.
At the club meetings. held every two weeks, not only are compositions read and criticized
but persons prominent in the literary field are brought before the group. This year the
clI1b was fortunate in having Alan LeMay and Lynian Ancon as guest speakers. The
annual banquet was held in April. The clI1b also took up as a project the sponsorship of
the movie. "The Life of Emile Zola". the proceeds of which went into the publishing of

Several professional men of the near future in the areas of aeronautical, mechanical,
civil and chemical engineering formed the Delta Tau Lambda One year ago. The club
was dedicated to the purpose of promoting fellowship, scholarship, and educational features
among the engineers attending the college.
The tremendous success of the club since its inauguration has been due largely to the
fast moving program sustained by the interest of Professor Carl J. Cardin. Every month
of the school year receives its share of "Lambda" activity. Trips are numerous-one
a month. The boys whipped off to a start this year with a trip to Crane's plant Chome of
plumbingj in Chicago. Following in quick succession were trips to Chicago's municipal
airport-courtesy of American Airlines, International Harvester. Museum of Science and
Industry, Wisconsin University, Bell Telephone. General Motors a11d others.
Meetings are held twice a Inonth in the science building and are occasions for talks,
moving pictures, and refreshments. Most of the students have hobbies of a technical
nature and are encouraged to impart their information and experiences to the members.
Extremely interesting student talks have been given on such subjects as flying, photography
and radio. The moving pictures are usually secured from industrial representatives and
show such things as current commercial operations and processes. transportation equip-
ment and developments. Delta Tau Lambda also engages in a little fancy competition
between members such as a bowling tournament.
The club's calendar will be brought to a close with the annual banquet at which the
coveted Engineering Pin will be presented to members who qualified with at least fourteen
hours of engineering at a "B" average, all other hours at a "C" average. and a recom-
mendation by the organizations executive committee.

A religious service without a choir is like a minister without a congregationgso the necessary
and appropriate music for these services is rendered by a talented group of singers chosen by Pro-
fessor Pinney. Many of this group are members of the Men's and Womenas Glee Clubs.
Twice each week regular rehearsals are held in which preparation is made for the services of
the following week. Occasionally the choir makes a particularly impressive appearance, gowned
in long black and white vestments for the devotional services. Much credit is due to this group
of persons who so materially add to our chapel services.
The WOm6Il9S Glee Club of the 1937-38 season numbered forty-six girls. All were chosen
after competitive tryouts. which were judged by the director and the officers.
A very successful season was enjoyed, culminating in a brilliant concert on the evening of
March fourth. The concert consisted of well chosen songs. showing to good advantage the result
of continuous and thoughtful rehearsal. Scenes from "Rigoletto". "Madame Butterflyw, "La
Traviataw. and "Carmen" were done in costume. An interesting group of songs by the Sophomore
Girls, Octette was received very enthusiastically. The untiring and able efforts of Miss Cook
were rewarded by the sincere commendations of the audience.
The Sophomore Octette gave a number of concerts during the year, some of which took the
group to South Bend and Elkhartg and an initial appearance was made at the Naperville Women's

For the past two years the Band has been a very successful and a growing unit of North Central's
campus. It has played an important part at the major athletic events and has given prestige to
many of the special events that have been held. That it is a vital part of the college pep and school
spirit cannot be denied.
This year may be counted as one of tlIe most successful that the Band T135 had. On February
24th the second annual concert was given and showed the Band to be definitely a first rate organi-
zation. This, and other performances of the year. we are sure. have been greatly appreciated
by the student body.
TlIe competitive try-outs for membership in the lVIen's Glee Club this year turned out a larger
number of good voices than usualfso many in fact that the maximum membership limit had
to be raised to admit the qualified applicants. Under the direction of Professor Baer the fellows
yylorkcild zealously in preparation for the annual spring concert. which was given Friday evening,
In addition to the home concert the club gives others in Chicago and the suburbs. Its final
gesture is a ten weeks' summer tour for a selected octette.this tour taking in the north central and

The activities of the Y. M. C. A. are probably as varied
as any organization upon the campus. This year the Pi
Nu Alpha fraternity, a "Y" project, started off by meeting
the new men at the train, aiding them in getting adjusted
to their new surroundings, and playing host to the new-
coIIIers at the annual baIIquet. Religious Emphasis Week
was this year under the leadership of Dr. Frank D. Slutz,
who aided students immeasurably with his open forums
and personal interviews. The "Y" has been
instrumental in the acquisition of various
prominent speakers for chapel programs.
The Y. M. C. A. maintains the social
rooms in the basement of Old Main which
are open during the day to men wishing
to use them for study. recreation, or rest.
For use in private devotions, the "YF
has recently instituted the "Upper Room",
a small room on the fourth floor of Old
Main, which was dedicated to this purpose
in a formal cerelnony. These are ways in
which the "Y" tries to make itself a vital
part of each student.
The Student Volunteer group is or-
ganized primarily to maintain a closer
relationship to the mission project, it being
the endeavor of this group to become
acquainted with the work going on in all
missionary fields. This year particular
emphasis was laid on the Evangelical
missions. The foreign and home fields were
used as topics and formed the base around
which the yearls program was built. A
fine group of speakers outside of this group
was secured to lead discussions. which togeth-
er with musicals proved to be very effective
in rounding out a program that maintained a good interest
and attendance throughout the year.
The high point in the social life of this group was the
annual breakfast outing held late iI1 the year. This was
held in Pioneer Park. south of Naperville. where the group
enjoyed a "ca1nptired" meal under the soft rays ol' the
rising sun. A short period of devotion in this natural
setting, and the folks returned to Naperville in time for
Though not large, this group oi some thirty or forty
college and seminary students is an influential part of
North Central's religious life.

Interest and activity from the first day of school to the
last were in store for the Y. W. C. A. members this year.
The "big sisters" got their "little sistersu off to a good start
with a first week of fun and excitement. Continued friend-
ship and understanding among North Central girls and the
"Dames" has been insured through fellowships. through
numerous social functions. and through personal contacts
made especially possible by the large participation in com-
mittee work. Highlights in social functions

Named in honor of the late Bishop
Seager. who was always a kind. lllldef-
standing friend to the young minister.
the Seager Association exists on North
Centralis campus to perpetuate that friend-
ship and act as a stabilizer for would-be
'raft ' ministers during their college day s. The
association brings in speakers who are
active in Christian work and who know
the many problems which confront the embryonic preacher.
The group has active relationships with the seminary.
associating in the monthly meetings. assembling each
year in an open house party at Seybert Hall. and joining
in enlightening bull sessions. Every spring a breakfast
party is held. to which the fair sex is invited.
The Seager Association is represented on the Central
Committee of the "Y'sM: thus it has an active part in the
planning of all religious activities on the campus. .lt also
sends out deputation teams to local and surrounding
churches. Through this activity an opportunity is offered
to become acquainted with the problems of the church.

The officers ofthe Forensic Board of Control, with the exception of the faculty advisor,
are elected by popular vote of the student body.
In general the board controls all activities of the speech department. It finances
the forensic program and forms and sponsors intercollegiate debates, regulates speaking
contests. and has a member on the Student Council to represent the forensic activities
on the campus.
This year the forensic department of North Central College acted as host to the Illinois
Intercollegiate Oratorical and Extempore Speaking Contests. This is an association
composed of ten colleges in the state of Illinois and holds annual speaking tournaments.
This year the idea of having an Extempore Speaking Contest along with the oratorical
was inaugurated by our own professor of speech. Guy Eugene Oliver. Aside from the
speech activity of the forensic field, North Central is Very active in Intercollegiate Debate.
Numerous non-decision as well as decision debates have been sponsored throughout the
year, the purpose of the non-decision debate being mainly to throw off the tremendous
weight being placed upon decisions regardless of honest intelligent discussion. Prof.
Oliver and his debaters have been pursuing this more or less discussion type of debate
for the last few years and have found it very prolific in sound intellectual values. Several
intercollegiate radio debates were sponsored with neighboring colleges with the request
that the radio audience submit the decision. It seems very possible that this method
might entertain an interesting and educational phase of the debate field.
North Central can be proud of its forensic department because it plays a leading role
in the speech activities of the state of Illinois.

Delta Epsilon is the North Central Chapter of Alpha Psi Omega. The purpose of this
fraternity is to stimulate interest in dramatic art at North Central College. to secure for
the college all the advantages and mutual helpfulness provided by a large national honorary

worthy efforts in participating in the plays staged by the college.
The membership includes any regular enrolled student of the college who has main-
tained a scholarship with a grade index of 1.5. having played one major role and one
minor role or three minor roles in three-act plays or three major roles in one act plays.

fortunate in securing several outside speakers. Mrs. Pulliam, manager of the Lincoln-
Belmont Y. M. C. A. Cafeteria, gave some interesting pointers on cost production. She
also added the qualilications of a home economics woman seeking a position on her staff.
Another speaker, lllr. Huntington, a United States Government meat grader, presented
the essentials related to his work and conducted a very helpful discussion on meats and
meat products. The club sponsored a fashion show presented on March 24th by Mrs.
Henry of the Modern Shop, Aurora. This was open for all. The original creations Cclothingj
of the club members were displayed by their creators in semi-professional style. The

This year found the newly organized Gamma Nu Chapter of the honorary biological
society. Beta Beta Beta. on the North Central campus. This society is the successor to
the Zoology Club of the past. Its membership consists of persons who are majors in the
fields of biology and who have met the scholastic requirements. The aim of the society
is to develop sound scholarship. to disseminate scientific truth. and to promote biological
investigation. In line with this the society publishes "Bios", a quarterly journal, in which
are published articles of interest and papers written by members.
The chapter was installed with eleven charter members, six of whom returned this year.
This year there have been sixteen new members taken into the group.
A project of the local chapter was the sponsorship of the Biology Club. This club
consisted of about thirty persons who were either botany or Zoology majors. Meetings
were held bi-weekly, the program taking the form of reports and discussions on some
phase of biology of current interest.
One of the highlights of the year's program was a spaghetti supper served by the men
of the club at which Mr. and Mrs. Dwight Davis of Naperville were guests. Following
the supper Mr. Davis, who is connected with Field Museum. told of a trip that he made
Field trips were taken to the Abbott Laboratories at North Chicago and to the Aurora

MISS ALICE MEIER, Chairman
Under the direction of its capable chairman, Miss Alice Meier, the College Social
Committee filled the 1937-38 season with a wide variety of successful social events that
will be well-remembered by those who attended. Throughout the year the fieldhouse
was magically transformed into most unusual scenes to serve as delightful settings for the
unique social occasions. The season opened in a courtly and dignihed manner with the
formal annexation of the newly acquired province of the class of '41 into that ancient
and respected kingdom of North Central College. During the evening the ceremonies
took place in the lavishly furnished throne room of the King. The court jester provided
the laughs, the court musicians aired the melody, and the ladies and gentlemen of the
court furnished the hospitality which introduced the freshman class into their Alma Mater.
The next party was under the supervision of that master funster, George Campbell, who
in his inimitable fashion proved to North Central students that from their own number
could be drawn enough talent to more than fill a long wintry evening with laughter, stunts,
songs. and good fellowship.
All the thrills of a long journey were enjoyed when party-goers traveled to the ends
of the earth to enjoy the North-and-South Pole party. Contests in ski-ing, sleighing,
snowballing, and many other winter sports were indulged in to the delight of all the would-
be explorers on their imaginary expedition in the synthetic arctic regions of Nichols Hall.
In extreme contrast. the charming beauty of a summer camp, trees and all, was transported
to Nichols Hall when North Centralites moved for an evening into the New Hampshire
woods. Stories. songs, stunts, and Indian folklore plus the dancing flames of a campfire
truly brought June in January.
During February the annual old-fashioned party again proved itself a tradition too
o ular to be i nored. Costumes. folk dances, and box lunches ave evidence that the

or a smile and a happy memory, or both. The year came to a brilliant close socially with
the annual formal garden party. After hours of hard work. the committee completely
transformed the bare walls, floor, and ceiling of Nichols Hall into a charming moonlit
summer garden-more proof that imagination and industry can bring beauty to even the
homeliest spots and real delight to those who seek it.
Beside the parties. various other events were interspersed to fill nearly every week-end
of the year. Skating parties held the spotlight as being the most popular. Five of these
were held with near-capacity crowds each time. A surprise feature in one was a bonafide
"ice" carnival with guest artists performing in the setting of an imitation snow scene.
As amateurs attempted to imitate the exhibition they soon discovered the hardest part
about fancy skating was the floor. Of a more subdued nature, Sunday afternoon teas
provided opportunity for social discourse. At the first of these. the girls of Johnson Hall
were hostesses to the college in the open house of their newly furnished dormitory. The
guest of honor at one of these teas was Mrs. Jacob Kaufmann. one of the generous donors
toward the building of Kaufmann Hall.
The social committee consists of five faculty members appointed by the president
of the college and twenty students, three of whom are appointed by the Y. M. C. A.. the
Y. W. C. A., and the Student Council. respectively. the others being invited to serve by
the committee itself.

Abell published one of the finest series' of Chronicles ever seen at North Central. Roberta

activity. Assisting actively on the editorial staff were editor-elect Hooper White. whose
sports page was a main feature of the paper, and freshmen Dorothy Brown and Guy

North Central's art enthusiasts have continued in a second year of interesting activity.
A colorful initiation, featuring the traditional artist's beret and smock, gave the campus
notice of their presence. - The year's program was varied and attractive, living pictures
representing several of Millet's greatest works were skillfully arranged and presented by
the members. Finger painting, which offered to all an opportunity for individual creation,
was the drawing card for one evening. Mrs. Houck, able and efficient director, gave a
comprehensive survey of art which touched upon the lives and works of the great masters
of all times, from the very ancient through those of the present day. One of the high
points of the year was the discussion of sculpturing as presented by Mrs. Miller, one of
Naperville's own. This talented woman has been enthusiastically received in colleges
all over the country, and North Central was no exception. A trip to W3fFCl1Vill6,t0 view
the work of some contemporary artists and a visit to Mrs. Houck's home were other enjoy-
able aspects of the season. The members themselves contributed discussions on archi-
tecture, painting, and ceramics.
The aim of Parnassus is to sponsor the enjoyment and appreciation of art. To realize
this ideal, individual endeavor and research guided by those experienced in art and criticism
of art together with group study is promoted by the association. The plan of stimulating
interest in this aesthetic phase of college life is carried through monthly meetings which
educate as well as give pleasure. Faculty and students alike are welcomed into Parnassus,
the only requirement being a mutual interest and enjoyment in artistic things.

History Club is the medium through which North Central's historians further their
knowledge in their chosen field and mingle with kindred spirits. Like any other depart-
mental club it seeks to instill an extra-curricular interest in that field in students. The
membership consists of juniors and seniors who are majors in historv and those freshmen
and sophomores who intend to do so. Meetings are held on alternate Thursdays, and
usually the program is a report or review of some work that is of popular interest. During
the past year some of the seminar students read their own interesting works at these
For the second semester of this year the club inaugurated a new type of program for
their meetings. This was an open forum discussion on recent or current events that were
of world-wide interest. These forums were conducted bv Dr. Attig. Anyone interested
was invited to attend. This movement is worthy of praise because until the time of its
inauguration there was no discussion group on the campus.
One activity of the History Club that warrants citation is that of sponsoring the Easter
Vacation trip. This trip has been undertaken quite often in the past but seemed to have
lost its attraction in the past few years. This year's club revived the interest and sponsored
a five day trip that took in points of historical interest in live states. The places visited
in Illinois were chiefly in connection with Lincolnls life. and the ones in Missouri, Ten-
nessee, and Kentucky were important because of their connection with the Civil War.
Perhaps the high spot of the whole trip was the time spent in the Ozark Motintains ot
Arkansas. This is the home of some of our more primitive people and one of the last
retreats of the true "hill folkw of whom we have come to hear many legends. The trip
was an event which no one so fortunate to have taken part will ever forget.

necessitated an initiation of twenty new members at the first meeting which was held
at the home of Elizabeth Yender. When our second semester initiation was held at the
home of Professor Kerr, six more new members were received into the club.
In the fall Mr. Clarence Boettcher, an agent of the Connecticut General Insurance
Company alld a graduate of North Central College, spoke on insurance and investment
trusts. Soon Santa Claus appeared at the annual Christmas party and all those present
had a pleasant social meeting. In the first meeting of 1938 Jack Lindstrom, a student of
the Commerce Department, gave an enlightening talk on marine commerce and trade
from 1776 to the present time. Other interesting talks are planned for the remaining
meetings of the year as well as several Held trips to the business district of Chicago.

The high water mark in the yearas activities of the North Central Varsity Club was
reached last October when the club room of that organization was dedicated to the "number
one sport fan" in the College-Mr. F. W. Umbreit, treasurer.
As the room was officially dedicated as the NF. W. Umbreit, Varsity Club Room",
the fifty members voted unanimously that Mr. Umbreit was, and is, the living symbol of
what North Central's athletic teams stand for, namely: sportsmanship and lair play in
intercollegiate competition regardless of the final score.
Early in December the second edition of the club's bi-yearly newspaper, "The Varsity
Views", was issued with Karl Parker, editor, and Hooper White, Hugh White, Jacques
Clodjeaux, and Duane Cann serving as contributors.
Initiations in November and in March swelled the total enrollment well above the
fifty mark. Letter winners in football, basketball. baseball, indoor and outdoor track,
tennis, swimming, and wrestling are eligible for membership in the Varsity Club. Besides
these the student managers of the various sports: athletic coaches, William R. Frederickson,
Edward E. Rall, and F. W. Umbreit-honorary members, and the manager of the intra-
mural program are listed on the Varsity Club roll call.
The Varsity Club oath which is administered to all incoming members reads as follows:
1. To promote a spirit of brotherhood among members of the Varsity Club, both present and past.
2. To work for the highest type of sportsmanship in intercollegiate contests.
3. To be an active agent in honorably interesting high school athletes to choose North Central as
their Alma Mater.
4. To uphold at all times the ideals and standards of North Central College.

To restate year after year "the enjoyment of piecing together the parts of this year's
Spectrum" is so much superficial blah. The publication of this book is a hard task and
an impossible one without the help of innumerable people. So credit should go to the
individuals who gave invaluable assistance to the book.
William Abbott took care of the organization Write-ups and gave many hours in or-
ganizing copy for printing. Karl Parker, with the aid of Hooper Wliite. Elroya Cigrand.
and Elizabeth Emmert, collected full data and composed the athletic stories, which give
the best presentation of the year's sports possible. Evelyn ,lackson's talent was turned
toward the art creations representing the divisions. Dorothy Pegg, a former N. C. student,
spent hours in proofreading copy prepared by capable typist Wilma Hem. The cameras
of Walter Wagner, Eugene Keyes, Evan Jacobsen, and John Gaddas afforded many of
the snapshots which made possible an enlarged feature section. Hugh Wliite compiled
the data for the seniors and solicited for revenue. Robert Younts, associate editor, aIId
Clyde Womer, associate business manager, joined the staff late in the year but early
enough to turn a willing hand. Mrs. Houck, Prof. Kerr, Oliver Rogers of Rogers Printing
Company. and W. D. Crocker of Jahn and Ollier Engraving Company gave counsel when-
ever called upon. K. W. Moore of Glen Ellyn is responsible for the fine quality of the
portrait workg L. S. Stafford of Wheaton, and Archie Dewey of Aurora, photographer of

interest in the book. James Heilman, Robert Steinhebel, Ruth Bauer, Dorothy Brown.
Jean Weber, June Henke, Esau Dotlich, Duane Cann, and Edith King also contributed
to the contents of the Spectrum.

This year saw the formation of a new club on North Central's campus. Approximately
twenty-five embryo chemists organized a club whose membership is limited to juniors
and seniors who have complete or are enrolled in second year chemistry. Regular meetings
are held bi-monthly.
The purposes of the club are to provide counseling opportunities for those interested
in industrial chemistry and to promote a general interest in chemistry. The club also
includes ill its program field trips and the reading of the seminar theses written by the
An interesting schedule was planned for the initial club year which included an address
by Mr. Walter Sperry. director of the up-to-date Sewage Disposal Plant at Aurora. a
plant which serves as a model for many such institutions all over the United States. For
its field trip the club decided to visit this plant. Another speaker who contributed to
the value of the club's program was Forrest Anderson of the Vvilkens-Anderson Chemical
Co., who spoke on "Job Guide for Chemistry-Minded Seniors".
The Chemistry Club satisfied a very definite need. The information received through
it was unanimously considered to be valuable. helpful. and timely. With such an auspicious
beginning. next year's club holds great promise of becoming still more active on the campus
and of incorporating more outside guidance on the problems which face those considering
entering the field of industrial chemistry.

Sigma Tau Delta is a professional English fraternity. its membership limited to students
majoring in English who qualify scholastically. Its purpose is to cultivate an appreciation
for good literature among its members and the student body as a whole. Its motto. "Sin-
cerity. Truth. and Design", is one which touches the broader aspects of life, so as to keep
it from becoming pedantic.
Meetings are held monthly at which talks are given by faculty members. manuscripts
are read andcriticized. and reports are given on various phases of literature. III February
the annual initiation banquet was held at Grace Church with our librarian, Miss Nienstedt,
as speaker. Twelve new members were inducted.
While the nature of the organization is honorary and professional. the congeniality
and informality of the meetings keep it from being cold-blooded, make for a spirit of friend-
liness among the students working in the English department, and at the same time provide
for an interchange of ideas and inspiration and a means for self-expression and criticism.

The Illinois Alpha Chapter is a charter member of Pi Gamma Mu. National Social
Science Honor Society. This society has chapters in more than one hundred American
colleges aIId universities. Its purpose is to stimulate scientific solution of social problems.
This society unlike most honorary societies has developed quite an active program.
It has two ohjectivesAfirst to develop its members in their study and solution of social
problems. and secondly to create interest among the student body iII general in the prob-
lems of the Held. To carry out these objectives the chapter has monthly Ineetings at
which discussions, reports, book reviews, and lectures constitute the program. For the
aIInual meeting and dinner a speaker of prominence is secured. This year the society
was host to the annual dinner of the Illinois province of Pi Gamma Mu, at which tl1e
well-known Judge .Iohn Gutknecht of the Chicago Municipal Court was tlIe speaker.
The society sent two of its members to the Midwest Institute of International Relations
which was held here last June.
In connection with its second objective the chapter sponsors a social science exhibit
on College Day,which is generally one of the highlights of the exhibits. Educational
tours to Chicago are provided, these being open to any students.

"A healthy mind in a healthy body."
Years ago the Greeks coined this phrase which,
today, has become a by-word in the athletic world.
And, thanks to the facilities of a four hundred thousand
dollar physical education plant, Coaches Fisher,
Bieber. Schaefer. Dillon, and Miss Tanner have con-
stantly worked to make the entire North Central
student body "exercise conscious" during 1937-1938.
.lust how well the coaching staff has succeeded in
giving everyone a chance to participate in inter-
collegiate or intramural competition is evidenced by
the fact that more than sixty percent of the student
body take constant advantage of the opportunities
found in Merner Fieldhouse.

Other than this, Kennard Bishop directed a well-
rounded intramural program for less talented students. Intramural sports include touch
football, basketball, softball, handball, a11d ping-pong.

Judging only on the won and lost column, North Central suffered a below average
year with twenty-eight victories and forty losses. However, the record of the track team
includes losses not only in dual competition but also in large meets in which as many as
fifteen colleges would be entered.
Some spectacular individual performances in every field of play provided "all-star"
teams with their usual quota of North Central standouts. These brilliant marks were

made possible. however, by the whole-hearted cooperation of teammates and the expert
guidaI1ce of the coachiIIg staff.
Opinion seems to be sharply divided as to the outstanding athletic achievement of
North Central's forces during 1937-38. Many are of the opinion that the last half foot-
ball victory over Wheaton touched the high water mark: others contend that the surprising
second-place showing of the swimming team in the conference meet merits top honorsg
still. others argued for the basketball team which won six conference games and lost two
to finish second to Bradley Tech in the final standings. Regardless of the greatest feat
North Central performed during its last year of competition, the fact is undisputable
that the policy of the college continued to be one of courtesy and fair play.
Attendance figures showed a slight increase over former years. The largest crowd
ever to witness an attraction in Merner Fieldhouse was on hand for the North Central-
Wheaton battle on February 19. More than 1800 fans saw the Cardinals turn back the
Crusaders in the hectic game in which North Central appeared to hold the upper hand
The second annual Midwest Intercollegiate Indoor Track and Field Meet attracted
a field of 150 athletes from twenty-one colleges. North Central was favored also with the
first aI1nual Illinois College Conference Swimming Meet which was held in the beautiful
natatorium on March 19.
Perhaps the most significant athletic development came about early in December
when ten colleges in the old Little Nineteen Conference decided to secede and form their
own league to be known as the Illinois College Conference. Schools in this new conference
include North Central, Monmouth. Whea'ton. Illinois College, Lake Forest, Illinois Wes-
leyan, Bradley Tech, Augustana, Knox, and James Millikin University. Beginning next
year, fSeptember, 19385, the freshman rule will take effect in every sport. This year
freshmen were barred from only football and basketball.

Carroll College of Wailkesha, Wis., ran its victory string to twenty-three games when
North Central was defeated 13 to 0 in the Cardinal's first home contest. The powerful
Carroll eleven was played to a standstill during the first half. Then as North Central
tired under a bigger, more powerful Carroll attack, Warreii Callahan skirted around end
for a 62 yard touchdown gallop midway through the third quarter. Captain Art Buck,
Carroll's high-scoring quarterback, counted a second touchdown late in the 'hnal period.
Buck cut back over center and outran the North Central secondary twenty-five yards to
the Cardinal goal. Buck added the extra point on a kick from placement.
NORTH CENTRAL 12 WHEATON 7
All the thrills of big-time college football were in evidence as North Central and Wheaton
fought it out for the twenty-sixth year. After sixty minutes of rough, bruising grid war-
fare. North Central had written another brilliant page in its athletic history in the form
of a 12 to T victory.
After the half had ended in a scoreless tie. most of the fans were content to believe
neither team would score. Then with seven minutes remaining in the third quarter. Herb
Heilman. out of the lineup with a bruised knee since the McKendree game, took his usual
place in the.North Central baekfield. Heilman's presence seemed to inspire the Cardinals.

halfback Joe Morin.
Led by Patterson, Wheaton threatened late in the game, Patterson plunging for a
touchdown from the four yard line.
The victory, however, was costly. Jim Breen, all-conference tackle, and Paul Shoger,
regular fullback, were out for the remainder of the season with broken ankles suffered
in the wild second half.

Augustana College celebrated its homecoming by staging a last half rally that netted
a pair of touchdowns which were good for a 12 to 6 win over North Central.
The Cardinals looked like sure winners in the first two quarters with Heilman and
Morin leading the attack. A forward-lateral pass, Herb Heilman to .lim Heilman to
"BoboM Dotlich, was good for 20 yards and took the ball to Augie's five. On the next
play Herb Heilman scored on a fake reverse.
Dahlgren and Ainsworth, hard-running backs, scored touchdowns for the winners.
NORTH CENTRAL 0 LAKE FOREST 0
The twentieth annual homecoming football game with Lake Forest College as the
opposition ended in a scoreless tie. Both squads carried the ball to the shadow of the
goal line, only to fail because of fumbles or the timer's gun.
North Central pushed to the Lake Forest two yard line in the fourth quarter only to
lose the ball on a fumble. Lake Forest retaliated with a fourth-period drive that wound
up inches short of the North Central goal as the game ended.
NORTH CENTRAL 0 MONMOUTH 0
Although inferior to Monmouth in manpower, North Central fought the down-state
eleven to another scoreless tie in the season's finale at Naperville. Ten seniors wound

Mon. DUMMER CAPT. IJOVERSPIKE COACH ANNEBERL:
A group of twe11ty inexperienced candidates answered Coach Frank Anneberg's initial

one. At 126 pounds Ed Bossert triumphed once. Edwin Brands. 135 pounder. won in
three bouts including a pair of falls at the expense of Wheaton. Captain Lorayne Dover-
spike was credited with four victories in the welterweight C1455 division.

placed second in the Illinois College Conference meet which was won by Illinois College
of Jacksonville for the fourth consecutive year.
North Central out-scored the opposition, 322-317, in ten dual meets but captured
only three while losing seven. Four meets were decided by less than five points and two
of them hy one point.
Sensational performances i11 the 100 yard back stroke and the 50 yard free style were
turned in by Harold Henning, a freshman from Lockport, New York. Henning established
a pair of conference records. swimming the 50 yard free style in :25. seconds and the
100 yard back stroke in 1:05.6.

In the first game following the Christmas holidays,
Carroll College won its 25th consecutive home engage-

Carroll found the range in the second half to win handily. Johnny Pauler, Ccllicr, Hllfl
Arthur Buck, forward. paced the Carroll attack.
NORTH CENTRAL 42 LAKE FOREST 41
Captain Arlyn ShifIier's long field goal from center fioor with twenty seconds of play
remaining climaxed North Central's 42 to 41 victory over Lake Forest in the first Illinois
College Conference game. Leading through the greater part of the second half, Lake
Forest suddenly found itself on the short end of a 40 to 39 count, thanks to some remarkable
playing by Dennis Bapst and James Stucky.
Then, with forty-five seconds of play remaining, the fireworks started. Rob Patterson
dribbled down the sidelines, swung to the center of the court, and let fly with a long shot
that sent Lake Forest into a 41 to 40 lead. Seconds later Shiflier scored to pull the game
"out of the fire" with his long field goal.

a 42 to 37 defeat. Augie, leading the conference and unbeaten in its previous eight starts,
led at the half 23 to 19.
North Central's last-half rally, which was sparked by the entrance of Wilbur Littleford
into the lineup, was one of the high spots of a successful Cardinal basketball season. It
was the first defeat North Central ever handed Augustana in a basketball game.
NORTH CENTRAL 47 JAMES MILLIKIN U. 34
North Central remained unbeaten in conference competition by beating back James
Millikin U., 47 to 34, in Merner Fieldhouse. North Central took command early and
turned in a workmanlike job in winning its third conference engagement. The Cardinals
led at the half, 24 to 12. James Leasure, Gil Keith, and Captain Arlyn Shiffler headed
the North Central attack, each scoring ten points.
NORTH CENTRAL 36 WHEATON 39
Once again a scrappy Wheaton team upset the dope bucket and handed North Central
a 39 to 36 defeat. It was the same old story-Wheaton played a rushin game, rolled
up a big first half lead, then successfully staved off a furious, second-period Tlorth Central
Wheaton led at the half, 30 to 13, but failed to baffle North Central in the small Wheaton
gym after the intermission as the Cardinals outscored Wheaton, 23 to 9. James Leasure
paced the scorers of both squads with a total of 21 points. North Central missed fourteen
puilof 24 free shots. The defeat dropped the Cardinals from the top of the conference
a c er.
NORTH CENTRAL 48 JAMES MILLIKIN U. 45
North Central made it two straight over James Millikin U. at Decatur by winning
on the strength of a last half rally, 48 to 45. Millikin led most of the way but tired under
the torrid pace in the closing minutes.
NORTH CENTRAL 32 CARROLL 47
Carroll College scored its first victory on a North Central floor, 47 to 32. North Central
managed to keep in the game for the first half, the score being tied at intermission, 23 to
23. But the Cardinals tired under a fast Carroll attack, thereafter, as Buck, Pauler, and
Knoblauch launched a clever demonstration to win Coach Johnny Breen's first game as
head man of the Waukesha school.
NORTH CENTRAL 43 ARMOUR TECH 40
The Cardinals came back from the Carroll defeat with an unimpressive 43 to 40 win
over Armour Tech in Chicago. North Central led at the half, 23 to 18.
NORTH CENTRAL 38 AUGUSTANA 43
Augustana gained revenge for its early season defeat in Naperville by handing North
Central a 43 to 38 set-back at Rock Island. Augie controlled the ball off the back-boards.
North Central rallied in the closing minutes but failed to overcome Augie's early lead.

NORTH CENTRAL 49 WHEATON 42
Approximately 1300 spectators-one of the largest crowds ever to see a basketball

and Wheaton's cage squads. The Cardinals dominated play throughout, led at the half.
21 to 9, while holding Wheaton to three field goals, and coasted through the second
half in the face of a frantic Wlieaton rally to win rather handily, 49 to 42.
NORTH CENTRAL 52 ELMHURST 23
For the second time North Central had things all its own way and defeated Elmhurst,
52 to 23. North Central led, 19 to 16, at the half but pulled away as expected in the last
twenty minutes. Leasure's 19 points gave him 194 for the season and cracked .lim Thum-
ley's previous individual scoring record of 187.
NORTH CENTRAL 42 LAKE FOREST 37
A second place berth in the Illinois College Conference was clinched by North Central
as the Cardinals ended the season by beating Lake Forest, 42 to 37. North Central led

The 1937 outdoor track season was full of good breaks and surprises-for North Central's
opposition. For instance not many expected DeKalb to win the triangular meet that
opened North Central's outdoor season on the local track. DeKalb accumulated 99 points,
North Central collected 71, and Carroll trailed with 35. Rikli won both the 100 and 220
yard dashes: Keyes took the half mileg and Gillette won the 120 high hurdles. The relay
team was defeated for the first time in the 1937 season. DeKalb showed power in both
the mile and two mile with Hutton and Hussung monopolizing the first two places on
the same day. Lloyd Siebert was participating in the Kansas Relays, taking a second
place in the pole vault. He jumped 13 feet, 11 inches. in breaking a tie for second place,

in the Midway Fieldhouse, Chicago. The Maroons, with seven first, six second, and six
third places, defeated the invaders 63 to 31. North Central's scoring was concentrated

Lindstrom checked in with thirteen points by taking a first in the high jump and low
hurdles and a second in the high hurdles. Keyes set a new college record in running the
half mile in 1:57.3 seconds, although Webster of Chicago won the race. Keyes was an
easy winner in the mile, however.

The Cardinals opened the home season with a smacking 63 to 41 victory over Armour
Tech of Chicago in Merner Fieldhouse. Lindstrom again dominated the field by scoring

A wild second inning that produced five runs gave Elmhurst an 8 to 4 victory over
North Central for the Cardinals' first defeat of the season. Inability to hit with men on

Intramural sports at North Central aren't what they should, nor "ain't what they
used to be". In the dim past these interclass struggles were of primary importance, even
within the last decade classes were proud of their champion teams. And upon examination
of other colleges, much ado is made over class sports, not only among the smaller colleges
but also in universities. Where the weakness lies at North Central is hard to decide.
Intramural sports are pushed to the background and are given very poor support. In
spite of all that, those who partook did so with much enjoyment. It is hoped that more
interest will be shown in this activity in the coming year.
The intramural sports calendar includes diamond ball, basketball, touch football,
and such individual tournaments as may be called: handball, ping-pong, golf, chess, etc.
The greater interest and activity centers around diamond ball and basketball.
The diamond ball season of last fall was packed with stiff competition. The Seniors,
after a hard struggle, were finally able to land on top of the heap with four victories against
no defeats. Sophomores and Freshmen shared second honors with a .500 percentage.
The highlight of the season came on October 30 as the winning senior team faced a selected
group of "All-stars", chosen from other class teams, as a part of Homecoming. A bad
second i11ning in which the All-stars scored four runs was enough to send the senior intra-

mural champs to their lirst defeat of the year with a score of 6 to 2. Arlyn Shiffler, pitcher
for the Seniors, struck out an average of ten opponents per game throughout the tourney
and allowed only a three-hit average.
Basketball took a different turn. The Juniors, who held the cellar position during
diamond ball, won six and lost only one game during the season to finish on top with an
.857 average. The Sophomores, who finished in second place, handed them their only
defeat in intramural competition. Donald Hofer, Clare Oesterle. Elwood Bossert, Frank
Dauner, Stuart Shoger, Franklin Beck, Clyde Womer, and Mark Enz made a formidable
squad, and the coaching of Gil Keith was a decisive factor in their championship.

The Women's Athletic Association offers a nine months' course in supervised sports.
Under the tutelage of Professor Tanner and her assistants the "Amazons"are able to par-
ticipate in the outdoor sports, soccer, archery, tennis, and hiking, during the fall. When
the sting of cold weather drives the girls indoors, volleyball, handball, basketball, track,
swimming, and ping pong afford them all sorts of pleasure and practice during the winter
months. Once more out in the balmy spring Weather the girls have tennis and baseball
with which to wind up an enjoyable year with an interlocking of sportsmanship and friend-
ship among the contestants.
The completion of important sports events are celebrated with a banquet such as
the "Soccer Banquet" and the "Basketball Banquet". This year's Soccer Banquet was
held at Grace Church with the Sophomores as champions and the Seniors and Juniors
as runners-up. At the Basketball Banquet a lot of fun was had by all when the Freshmen
were being initiated. It is under the auspices of the W. A. A. that the outstanding event
of the year. "The Crowning of the Campus Queenm, is so successfully managed.
In the W. A. A. are requirements to be fulfilled to earn the two major awards. The
letter is awarded for participation in five team sports and three individual sports or for
seven team sports with one individual activity. Participating in team sports means one
must be present at least eight out of ten practices and play in every game in the tourna-
ments. To receive the W. A. A. pin, the individual must participate in twelve activities
including at least eight team sports and four individual activities. Individual activities
call for twelve hours of practice and participation in the tournament.

Women's Varsity tennis, the only major sport in which the women hold intercollegiate
competition, is the major feminine interest every spring as a tournament is played off
determining positions. After selecting the squad which consisted of Helen Canfield,
Gertrude Lounsbury, Anne Schug, Elizabeth Emmert, and Marjorie Maginiiis Qwho did
not return to school this yearl, Coach Cleo Tanner with the assistance of Manager Ruth
Hammersmith, began the season's schedule. The season was short because the matches
scheduled with Elmhurst and Illinois Normal were not played. The strong Chicago
Normal team won every match with North Central. North Central was victorious over
Wheaton on the home courts but lost by one match the meet played on Wheatonis courts.
The tournament held at James Millikin University is always looked forward to with
much eagerness because here the girls compete against a number of the best colleges in
the state. Helen Canfield won fourth place honors in singles play while Gertrude Lounsbury
and Elizabeth Emmert were defeated in the semi-finals in doubles.
The tennis season of 1937 was of considerable interest although it was no outstanding
success. Since four of the members of the Varsity team were Sophomores and the other
a Junior there is much hope for a very successful season next year.

WOMEN'S VARSITY TENNIS
Because the women's varsity intercollegiate program is limited, the
intramural sports occupy the spotlight where girls' athletic prowess is con-
cerned. Under the direction of Miss Tanner a program is carried out con-
sisting of soccer, volleyball, basketball, diamond ball, and tennis. Girls
interested in a larger variety may receive individual instruction in tap
dancing, swimming, bowling. archery, and horse-back riding.
As the soccer season opened in the fall, all the teams were keyed for
stiff competition. The Sophomores held the upper hand and emerged
victors of the tournament by one game over the Seniors. Juniors and Fresh-
men tied for last honors.
Witli defeat fresh upon them the Seniors staged a come-back in the
volleyball tournament held in Nichols Hall. The senior team, consisting
of Helen Canfield, Olive Frantz, Frances Hartong, Lucille Lundgren, Bernice
Gantzert, Doris Hartman, and Ruth Hammersmith, mowed under Juniors,
Sophomores. and Freshmen, who finished in that order.
Much was expected of the Sophomores and Seniors in anticipation of the
basketball tournament since they had shown superiority in the other fields.
The Freshmen were to be heard from, however, in a hotly contested battle
between Sophs and Frosh, the former won the game which decided the
championship, adding to their already achieved laurels. In addition to that,
LaVerne Peters and Betty Piper, both Sophomores, won the Archery Trophy
and the Dean Kirn Trophy, respectively, the latter being the award to the
winner of the fall intramural tennis tourney.
