To one of the greatest of these, A. E. "Dadi' Weyricl4, we dedicate this thirty-sixth volume ol the Spectrum. During his twenty-two years of service to North Central College, "Dad" has taught us that there may be dignity in the humblest ol taslcs. Minister, cabinet-malcer, poet, and friend ol the students, as well as the super- intendent of buildings and grounds, he is as much a tradition around North Central's campus as the library seal or senior circle. Quiet in manner and Christian in living, "Dad" Weyriclc exemplifies the type of char- acter North Central strives to build.

When you were in college here at North Central you never did care too much for go- ing to Chapel every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9:30. ln fact, you probably went to every device to get excused when you could. You were very careful to use up all three cuts per quarter, you noted precisely when attendance was not tal4en and acted accordingly, you traded seats with your friends so that you could sit next to someone who was worth sitting next to. When you were late, and still sleepy from being dragged out ot bed at the unholy hour ot 9:30, you had to fight your way across a dozen unyielding legs and feet. You growled at spealcers who tallced through the bell, you laughed when an alarm clock clanged in the middle ot some serious service. Well, you're in for it now. You have compulsory chapel attendance at every meeting. And you arethereevery day-f you haven't missed in about two years- and somehow you don't mind it, this way. The only difference is that you sit on the stage, or rather, more precisely, you are hanging from the curtain in front of everyone. You, represented by your star on the service Flag, you and 750 others watch each service now. ln a way you take part in every service. You are not only counted for lack of any- thing better to do but always remem- bered by the fellows and girls who lcnow you as john Jones and those who just know ot you-"he went here in 1937." But still you are here. . , CAMPUS VIEWS GGLDSPOHN OLD MAIN CARNEGIE UBRARY 3xYgSx:f.X2'QQ,5i!5',KITLX 'V " X su Sliiia 0 " , Q M, LJ 3..- .gwaafgamasmem 142 BARBARA PFEIFFER HALL MERNER FIELDHOUSE 'I3 F O R T I-I E.

The administration, composed of our president, our trustees, and our faculty, has the responsibility of passing on to us the lighted lamp pic- tured there, which stands lor "light and truth."

His interest in school activities and his ceaseless efforts to aid our male population at North Central in their problems ol draft status have been only a few ol his every-day duties around school. Not least among his responsibilities this past year was the tasl4 of enlarging the office space of many of the faculty members and the process of "recon- version" of the college and dormitories from the army training school they were last year to civilian use again. Twenty-nine years ol service as president has given Dr. Rall an understanding of the problems of students and administration which enables him to use good judgment in malcing the policy by which the college is governed. 'I 6 X A. E. Kurth, Administrative Dean Alice Meier, Dean of Women C. E. Erfimeyer, Dean ofthe College DEAN KUR-ll'l is new at North Central this year, coming to us from Michigan to Fill the office of Administrative Dean, a new oliice established last spring. l'lis duties are many, chief among them being the administration of public relations, co- ordination ol campus religious activities, and development of general good will toward the college. ta-. if MISS MEIER has done an able job as Dean ol Women at the college the past three years, in addition to her duties as an instructor in German. DEAN ERFFMEYER recently succeeded Pro- fessor Finlfbeiner as Dean oi the College. ln addition to these duties, Mr. Erifmeyer is also senior class advisor and professor of education in the college. W. G. Schendel, Treasurer H. l.. Deabler, Personnel Director C. C. Hower, Registrar MR. SCHENDEL has proved to be an efficient treasurer since he came to North Central tour years ago.

I OUR HEALTH SERVICE "Do you have a headache? Does your tummy hurt? Did you skin your knee when you took that corner too fast on your bicycle?" These and a million other questions are matters oi intense interest to our college health department,consisting of two registered nurses and two campus phy- sicians, whose job it is to see that North Central students are always in the best oi condition. This year our health service has served students who came with everything from a scratch on the hand to scarlet fever. Any day you might see one of our nurses in her white starched uniform carrying a tray from the dorm to some student who hasnit Felt quite up to getting up for dinner, for our nurses work doesn't stop with just office attention. No sirl ln fact, otfice hours are held just one hour a day, while our nurses are always busy making calls in the dormi- tories or way across town, wherever North Central students are ill. Yes, North Central's health department is an active one, always ready on call, and in addition to the various casualties which occur during the year, there is a regular program which is carried on also. There are thorough physical and medical examina- tions of all students who enter our portals, and there- is limited provisions for immunization, medical attention, and infirmary service. ln addition, through the cooperation of the Du Page tuberculosis. association, tests for T. B. have been conducted the last few years. A big vote of thanks goes to Amy Skartved and Lucy Rowe, registered nurses, both under appoint- ment to do medical missionary work in Africa next year, and to our campus physicians, Dr. Kupke and Dr. Martin, For their splendid medical care of us.. FACULTY FACTS Spealcing of traditions, did you realize that some of our faculty members themselves are almost tradi- tions on the campus? They have been at North Central for such a period of time that when former students come bacl4 to visit, they expect to see their old profs justas much as they expect to see some of the familiar land marlcs around campus. For those of the faculty who have served North Cental for a period of twenty-five years or more, an organization has been formed, called the "Twenty-five Year Club." The oldest member of this organization is Professor Marion E. Nonnamaker, who is now retired, but who has been associated with the faculty since 1898, a period of forty-seven years. Second in line in terms of service come two men, Dean Kirn, professor emeritus of philosophy and psychology, and Professor -lhomas l:inl4beiner, pro- fessor of German, both of whom came to North Central in 1903. Professor Finlfbeiner is still teach- ing. A great deal of credit should be given to these people who have so faithfully served North Central throughout the years as teachers and builders of the characters of youth. -lheir influence has been great, and their lives will live on in the lives of their students for years to come. The members of the Twenty-Five Year Club and their terms of service are as follows: Marion E. Nonnamalcer . , . Dean George Kirn . Thomas Finlabeiner , years years years Chester Attig years Edward E. Domm . years Clara K. Bleclc . years Edward Everett Rall . years Harold E. White . years Ciuy Eugene Oliver years William l-l. Heinmiller years Claude Charles Pinney years Our apologies go to those members of our administration whose pictures are omitted from our boolc to the trustees, whose picture didn't"turn out," to Miss Coolc, who was out of town the day the music faculty picture was talcen, to Mr. Keenas, assistant football coach, to Bill Frederickson, who was ill when pictures were being taken, and to Dr. Kuplce, campus physician. Memories of college days would be worthless, indeed, were it not for the friendships we mal4e. These, our classmates, have contributed much to our lun here at North Central. Some will never be forgotten, others, we wish we might have become better acquainted with, but all remind us that this is "the Friendly campus."

Baclc in the "good old days," before most Americans lcnew that there was such a place as Pearl Harbor, one hundred and sixty-seven timid but willing freshmen entered the portals of Old Main, little dreaming that their stay here would be be interrupted by anything more drastic than an occasional ducking in the pond or a beautiful hair cut at the hands of some upperclassmen. Then came December 7, and forty-three of that original class are here to graduate from North Central in 1945. Others came in from other colleges or from other classes, however, to bring the number of the senior class up to sixty-eight. Through a year of green caps andthe left-side-of- chapel seats the class of '45 made a name for itself by furnishing material for all the athletic events and winning the tug-of-war. The sophomore year was marked with greater distinction as Dick Smith and Eddie Grau Cre- member'?D made varsity baslcetball, and Doescher, l'laumersen, and others were on the football squad. Bolder than before, the Forty-Fivers dared to give the new freshmen a taste of the hazing which ac- companies normal times at North Central and were SENICJR so bold as to "bury," with appropriate ceremony, the "Spirit of the junior Class." lt was during this well-remembered sophomore year that many of our lads traded their red cords for the more-popular lthalci and navy blue of Uncle Sam's armed forces. The junior year's activities were high-lighted by the junior-senior banquet at St. Charles, and the choosing of a May Queen and King Rex from our group. Several of the class made the l-lonors Society during the junior year, and one,Carol Pres- ton, had the distinction of having been chosen for Who's Who Among Students in American Col- leges and Universities during her junior year. The rush of the senior activities has lcept our class busy, but not too busy to carry out some of the activities which are as much a part of the senior year as are caps and gowns. Skip-Day was held in Qctober, at Fullersburg, andthe seniors ate, waded, and rode to their hearts' content. The senior class play, "A Little l'loney," was presented April '20, and Senior Chapel, May 18.

When everything else that happened during 1944-1945 at North Central is put in the bacl4- ground of memory, somebody is bound to re- member the time that the junior class dared venture to the highest pealc of the tower ol Old Main and put their class banner there lor the view of the other classes. Then somebody will remember the day it was taken down, also by the members ol the junior class, lor no other class dared scale those dangerous heights to remove it. With the sound ol "taps" being played down on the ground and the mournful sounds emitting from members of the junior class, the Flag which had remained unchallenged in its lofty position, was slowly lowered. Known for its daring deeds since it hit North Central's campus, the Class ol 1946 has made a record which will not soon be Forgotten. Decorators ol the smolce-stacl4 and the library steps, the class has also madesome enviable records in the line of CLASS T 1946 scholastic achievement, having had five ol its members elected to the Honors Society. This being an unusual year on our campus, the Class ol 1946 gave an unusual junior-Senior Banquet at the Balcer l-lotel at St. Charles. They chose Miss Tanner as their special guest, and she gave an interesting tall4 on the history ol tennis. At the alter-party, a lloor-show was given, featuring the latest styles in women's wear lor the 1945 season. Caruso even staged a come-baclc especially for the occasion. The class has made its splendid record for this year under the leadership ol an excellent group ol officers, headed by l'lelen Claire Gamertslelder as president, Dorothy Schoephorster, vice president, Miriam Willson, treasurer, Mary Vandercoolt, secretary, Norma Stahl, women's representative to Student Council, Benny Yoshinaga, men's repre- sentative, and Professor Domm, faculty advisor.

The class of 1947 came in lilce a breeze, and it's going out in a "draft" Those few words sum up the entire history of the class of 1947 thus far at North Central. We entered as freshmen with a class almost as large as other freshman classes, and by spring our numbers had become considerably less. "Such is life," we said and plugged on. We found ourselves back at lNl.C.C. in '44 with a few new sophomores, a few of the old ones, but only numbering sixty-six in all. Many familiar faces were missing. It is practically impossible to find words to tell what a wonderful class we are. 'lo tell you that our class is versatile is putting it very mildly. We have men and women entering professions of teach- ing, theology, sociology, psychology, commerce, engineering, chemistry, and medicine --'- in fact, any profession you can name, including matrimony. 1947 We have made a place for ourselves in the field of athletics. ln 1944, we almost won the fresh- men girls' swimming meet from the juniors. We lost by only three points, but we did win the diving meet. ln the field of men's athletics, we have con- tributed some good traclc men and baslcetball men. We even had some sophomore men on our varsity football team. We've sent some of our best men into the service, others have gone from North Central during the course of the year to enter advanced professional training which also plays a great part in our war-time world. We've had some mighty tough breaks, such as losing our genial Diclt l'leter in an automobile accident at Christmas vacation this winter, but we just lceep plugging along as all the classes before us did-an-and as we l4now that all the classes that come after us will do. You just can't keep a good class down. ROW 1 ROW 2 Abbott, Ruthanne Arncit, Dorothy V.

One hundred and seventy-two Freshmen of the greenest hue descended upon North Central last September and promptly made her their own. -lhat first mad weel4 of tests, parties, teas, banquets, reg- istration, classes, and getting acquainted with people, places, and traditions set the pace for a year that has sped by. For a month and a half we were subjected to green caps and all that went with them. But most of us found them helpful for when we were in doubt as to where to find Dr. Attig, our able advisor, or how to get to the Union Room we needn't accidently show our ignorance by ques- tioning an upper classman. Early in the year the faculty entertained us at a bang-up picnic, com- plete with hot dogs, potato salad, coffee, and Dr. Rall making ice cream cones. Elections set us thinlcing and helped us get further acquainted with each other. The results of the final returns made Diclt Senn president, lviitsuru Kadoyama vice-president, Marie Keller- man secretary, and Marilyn Clawson treasurer. Audrey Bueche and Arnold Ettenhofer represented us on the Student Council. The homecoming bonfire, topped by the usual privy, and built by the Freshman fellows was a real success, in spite of several false starts the night before, thanlts to some enterprising high school lads. The Sophomores, downed by a chill Novem- ber wind and the thought of wet feet, conceded CLASS 1948 the tug-of-war victory to the Frosh. Freshmen have been well represented in football, basketball, traclc, and baseball. ln fact, they made some of these sports possible this year. Seventeen of these same boys who entered so enthusiastically into typical college life have left us for another type of life, that of the Armed Services. The Freshman reception at which time the class of nineteen forty-eight was officially made a part of NCC was the high point of the college social year for the class, just as the Big and Little Sister and Brother Banquets started it off. Other Frosh memories concern such things as 7:3O's and classes lilce zoo, chem, orientation, hygiene, and English. As the year progressed we came to the conclusion that they tested us during the first few weelcs to get us into college, and that now they are testing us to push us through. Dorm life has been a new and unique experience for most of the Kaufmanites and their recollections of those days will concern everything from after lights-out spreads, to ever changing bulletin boards, to 7:30 dorm hours, to their Cotton Carnival. From the first time we timidly joined in the singing of the Alma Mater at the Cardinal Ca- boodle, through our more sure vocalizing of it at Homecoming, until we boomed forth College Day we have been developing into full-fledged North Centralites.

STUDENT COUNCIL "The College believes in student self-government. lt has accorded to the student-body the largest measure of student-government compatible with the faculty's responsibility for the administration of the College and the capacity of the students for such self-government." Such is the college cata- logue's description of our Student Council. But our Student Council is more than just a paragraph in the college catalogue. lt is the most influential student body organization on the campus. Upon it every year fall many duties which to us may seem quite insignificant, and yet which have o great deal to do with the smoothness of the college program. Chief among its duties is the appointment of Homecoming and College Day chairmen and committees, who will function to mal4e those days equal or superior to such days in past years. It is the responsibility of the Student Council also to select the heads of the various college publications and the chairman of the War Council. Approval of budgets and appointment of a student comptroller also come under its administrative powers. Membership to Student Council is sought in a manner as democratic as is the manner in which the Council carries on its business. Every class elects two representatives to the Council, and in addition the various college student bodies are represented also. Every spring an election, rivaled only by the presidential election itself, is conducted at which time candidates seelf the offices of President of the Student Body, and representatives at large. The Council was headed this year by Don Rilcer as president of the Student Body, lack Stedman, representative-at-large, Phyllis Schendel and Rich- ard l.ehmann, senior representatives, Norma Stahl, and Benny Yoshinaga, junior representatives, Shirley Schmidt and Florian Schultz, sophomore representatives, Arnold Ettenhofer and Audrey Bueche, freshmen representatives, Betty Simpson and Lester Smith, "Y" representatives, Richard Lehmann, publications, Geneva Esmont, Forensic, Margaret Schloerb, athletic association and Dr. A.

SGCIAL CGMMITTEE There is nothing that boosts the morale on the home front than a good array oi parties, and our college social committee has certainly done its part this year. Days and days of planning have pro- duced some of the best parties North Central has ltnown-and North Central has lfnown some good ones. The social committee, as the name implies, malces plans For and produces a full schedule For the social activities lor the year. One of the first things on the program is the Freshman Reception, at which all the new students are admitted to the Kingdom of North Central by the l4ing of the realm, the President of the Student Body. This year the formal setting for the reception was the Nicholas l'lall, located somewhere in Sultan Ril4er's ltingdom. Slcating parties were held quite regularly through- out the year at Nichols l'lall, and were so well attended that it was necessary to hold two separate periods for skating each evening. Early in the year, the annual sports party was held, sponsored by the social committee and planned by the Women's Athletic Association. A "Tall Party" was conducted by the tall girls of the college. just before Christmas vacation, the annual Christmas lea was held in the social rooms ol the library, which were appropriately decorated for the occasion. The tea has become a tradition on the campus, and the one this year seemed to top them all. As in other years, the various foreign language departments ol the college participated by singing Christmas carols in German, French, and Spanish. ln the spring, in celebration of Washington's birthday, an "Qld-Fashioned" party was held, complete with hoop slcirts, powdered wigs, and Drs. l'laag and Eigenbrodt in their golfing clothes. Perhaps the most colorful event ol the year was the haylott party, held at Nichols Barn. Bales and bales ol straw, baskets of pop-corn, blue jeans and cowboy music created an ideal atmosphere for the Virginia Reel and numerous square dances. The credit For the success ol our many parties goes to Miss Meier,the chairman ol our socialcommittee, and her efficient committee members, who spend manky hours and receive little recognition for their wor . ,,..w" STANDlNGFWalters, Oertli, G.

WAR COUNCIL Last year's Spectrum made the following state- ment concerning North Central's War Council: "lt is hoped that this organization will not be in existence next year." But the War Council is still in existence, and as long as the war lasts, it will continue to carry out the worl4 for which it is responsible. It is our hope, too, that it will not be necessary to have it another year. The usual needs which exist in wartime have been met by our War Council again this year. At a time when we at home are so iorgetiul of the sacrifices made by others for us, the War Council attempts to remind us of the responsibilities we must also assume ii we wish to help our men in uniform. This has been brought about in various ways. The War Council has had several chapel programs at which different phases of its worlc have been stressed. The annual Red Cross drive was carried out this year on campus with a total of almost 5500.00 from students and faculty. Twice every weelc North Central girls have given part of their afternoons or evenings to told the much needed bandages, a project sponsored by one of the committees oi the War Council. Recently a neat new service roll has been put up in the hall ol Old Main, listing the name of every North Central man who is serving in this war, giving also the class he was in at North Central. This has also been the work of our busy council. Other activities have included the boolc drive for prisoners of war, and the correspondence to North Central service men. Yes, our War Council has been active this year in lceeping us up-to-date concerning the affairs oi our men who are serving us and the ways in which we can help them. The War Council has been headed this year by Miss Wiley as advisor, Geneva Esmont, Chairman, Phyllis Stump, sub-chairman, Dorothy Bernhardt, war bonds, Vernon Hoesch, Red Cross, Betty Muehl and lane Oertli, bandages, Marion Yamabe and Marjorie Mertz, publicity, Grace Simpson and Mardelle Schneller, correspondence, Lester Smith, memorial service, and Betty Walters, honor roll and service flag. HONORS SOCIETY The war hasn't produced a shortage of brains around North Central, as evidenced by the growth of our Honors Society this year. The organization is open to juniors who have attained an academic rating of 2.65 and seniors with an index oi 2.5, and has eleven members. Dr. I'Iower is the able faculty advisor For the group. Margaret Schloerb was chosen president of the group this year, and Miriam Attig was elected secretary. HONORS SOCIETY STANDINGM-I'I. Gamertsfelder, Mcgenheimer, Young, Mayer, Boyer.

X77 BETA BETA BETA That mouthful of Greek letters signifies the honorary society of biology students and an active chapter of the national organization functions on our campus. Such a high sounding name represents a society with an equally high purpose, namely to stimulate sound scholarship, to disseminate scientific knowledge, and to promote biological knowledge. But down to earth, if you've never heard of Beta Beta Beta, certainly no one could have missed knowing about Zoo Club, the prodigee of the society. Bimonthly Zoology Club sponsored by Beta Beta Beta members holds its meetings in the Union Room, the zoology lab, Brookfield Zoo, or any other convenient place, and then scientific knowledge both formally and informally is hurled back and forth between the members. Now just anyone aspiring to flount a Greek lettered key doesn't find himself suddenly in the midst of Beta Beta Beta. Not on your lifel There's specifications to be met, such as being a biology or zoology major, maintaining a B average, attending zoo club. So it's a meaningful occasion Egan the Zoology major can proudly say, 'l'm in Several meetings exclusive of the whole zoology club take place during the year. The first was during the fall and takes the form of an impressive initiation service. Following this, there ensues a banquet at the home of Dr. Eigenbrodt, the organization sponsor. Then again in the spring a big event occurs. invitations go trickling out all over the country and on the set date Alumni come streaming to their old haunt, the good old zoology lab. Gver a luscious plate of spaghetti, the Alums exchange stories of capers in the lab, events in the research field, surgical tales and other bits of interest which the students aspiring to tread the same path gobble up with relish! The last meeting of the year resolves into the election of officers. Those who led the organization during this year were Florence Mayer, as president, Doris Gamertsfelder as vice-president, Margaret Schloerb as secretary-treasurer, and Mildred Wolf, the historian. David Rall holds down the weighty position of usher.

I 62 l STUDENT AFFILIATES The group on our campus with the longest official name, we'd be willing to bet, is the body of scientists who are lcnown as North Central College Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society. Two years ago the group was formed on our campus, and the new name malces the chemical students something more than membership in the Chemistry Club means. Now the Student Affiliates have the privilege of attending national meetings and sitting in on National conventions. It also provides an opportunity for close contact with the recent national achievements and developments in the rapidly growing field of chemical research. North Central's group has the distinction of being the first in lllinois to be associated with the American fhemical Society. To qualify for membership, these chemistry students must have had one year of college chemistry and be worlcing toward a chemistry major. This year's officers have been headed by Dr. Koten as advisor, Doris Legner, president, john Beher, vice president, and Geraldine Maas, secretary-treasurer. At the regular monthly meetings this year a number of interesting programs have been con- ducted, including reports on the different activities open to chemistry students in the field of research today. ' Nlost of the Student Affiliates found time to attend a very interesting chemical exposition in Chicago this past winter, at which time they saw some of the products of chemistry which will aid in post-war living.

SIGMA TAU DELTA The first Tuesday of every month during this winter has found a group of juniors and seniors invading Miss Wiley's living room, laden with weighty-looking manuscripts to be read. These were the enthusiastic English majors who belong to Sigma Tau Delta, national English fraternity. An average meeting starts with a business session, in charge of the president, Ruth Grand- lienard, assisted by the secretary, Audrey Boyer. After the heavy business is discussed, the meeting is talcen over by Betty Magenheimer, who has served faithfully and well as program chairman this year. It is her duty to see that the members con- tribute some contribution to at least three monthly meetings a semester. When the manuscripts have been read and suggestions given for improvements, the remainder of the evening may be spent enjoying the refreshments served by a committee and looking over copies ofthe Rectangle, the national magazine of the fraternity. Our Sigma Tau Delta group started out this year with only a few members left from last year's group, but this initiation ol eleven new members did much to awalcen interest in the organization and to give it more life than it has had in many years. One of the outstanding features in the program of this group, which has for its purpose the fostering of good literary expression and promoting the reading of the chief literary masterpieces, was the group attendance ol the stage play, "Harriett," at the Erlanger Theater in Chicago in February. Requirements for membership into the honorary group say that a member must be an English major and must have a B average in all subjects.

Pl GAMMA MU Twenty years of Pi Gamma Mu existence have meant twenty years of Pi Gamma Mu for North Central College, for our college has the distinction of having been one of the charter members of the national organization. Founded in 1925, Pi Gamma Mu is the national honorary society for students of the social sciences. Before becoming a member, cr student must have talcen twenty hours of worlc in the social science field, must have at least a junior academic standing, a major in social science, and a B average. Mem- bership is made up of students and faculty from the college and seminary. Perhaps this group has a larger number of faculty members than any other honor organization on campus. The group has been headed this year by Marian Augustine as president and Professor W. H. Heinmiller, secretary. lts activities have been varied, including a buffet supper at the Heinmiller home, initiation at Kaufman parlors, a detailed report on the national election by Professor Wolf in the Student Union Room, and many other interesting meetings. During the first part of April, members of Pit Gamma Mu, accompanied by the history club, went on a sight-seeing tour of Chinatown in Chi- cago. The last part of April, the society celebrated its twentieth birthday anniversary by a banquet and program. The part that Pi Gamma Mu plays in North Central's college program will be important so long as American people are still interested in their country and its people, for Pi Gamma lViu's purpose is to further the study of social sciences until all shall come to lcnow the meaning of the society motto, "Ye shall lcnow the truth and the truth shall malce you free."

PI KAPPA DELTA Labor problems, national questions, international affairs all interest the members of Pi Kappa Delta, for they all present good subjects for disagreement and therefore, lor debate, and if there's onething a Pi Kap member likes to do better than debate, it's debate some more. Pi Kappa Delta, North Central's speech fraternity has been active this year, keeping up on the affairs in the speech world. First of its activities was its participation in the Speech Festival held last October, at which time a model debate was presented by "Whitey" Busacca and Donna Wilkening on the relative powers and abilities oi the male and female. While many of the meetings are filled with fun and light-heartedness, much serious thinking and studying goes on inside Pi Kap heads, as they pre- pare to participate in debates, extemporaneous speaking, orations, and all the other speech included in the tournaments. The question which has been debated in col- legiate circles this year has dealt with the question of settling labor disputes by compulsory arbitration when voluntary means of settlement have failed, constitutionality conceded. This is an old question, but one on which most of our debaters had spent little thought previously, and it required a great deal of study and research. ln the field oi extemporaneous speaking, Donna Wilkening placed first and Bill Steiner, second, in a group of nearly forty contestants in an invitational meet at Bloomington. By its challenge to creative thinking, Pi Kappa Delta builds better citizens as it strives to create better speakers. STANDING--Keen, Doede, Stevenson, Schultz, Young, l-loftsommer.

ALPHA PSI OMEGA Drama is lun, whether you participate as an actor or a stage hand, and nobody ltnows it any better than members ol Alpha Psi Omega, the national honorary dramatic group on North Central's campus. Even to gain membership into this exclusive society, a student must have so many "points" which are granted on the basis of per- formances in which he has participated, as actor, director, stage hand, or just general helper. Alpha Psi Omega has had a busy program this year, first of all assisting with the large banquet given in October by the Forensic department ot the school. This was in the form of a speech festival, to which all friends, students, and alumni of the speech department were invited. Much of the worlc ol sending out invitations, planning decorations, favors, and the other details tell to this group, for they are a part of Forensic. ln the line ot play production this year, the play, "Old Doc," was presented by members of Alpha Psi, either as participants or as baclters of the timid actors who were getting their First chance in a major production. The usual series ol one-act plays are also coached and produced by Alpha Psi Omega members as are the Shakespeare plays which are presented every spring.

SIGMA RHO GAMMA Sigma Rho Gamma, North Central's chapter of an honorary music fraternity, which re-organized last year, has completed a very successful and enjoyable term under the capable guidance of its sponsor, Professor George Luntz, of the voice department. its membership consists of students who are majoring in music and are enrolled in the college and the school of music. The purpose of the organization is to encourage the appreciation of good music by sponsoring at least one public performance a year, bringing outside talent before the group whenever possible, and giving members experience in public per- formance. The bi-monthly meetings were well attended and the splendid cooperation of the members and the guests who contributed inspiring vocal and instru- mental numbers as well as interesting reports, added to the instructiveness as well as pleasure of the evening programs. Some of the outstanding events of the year were the musical commentary programs and translations of the Lotte l.ehmann's Schubert and Brahms recital numbers. These were presented by Miss Watson and Professor l.untz. The February chapel program presented Don Grambsch, winner of the Chicagoland music festival, in a half hour of song. And last, but far from least, was the annual supper, which was held in April. The leaders for the group during the year in- cluded lvlaureen Collins Crummy, president, ,lanet Diewall, vice president, Kathryn Hoesch, secretary, and Virginia Diebel, treasurer. Keith Witmer was the efficient program chairman. After a year of having no college band, one was organized again this year at student request under the excellent leadership of Professor Toenniges, teacher of instruments in the school of music. Although not having been in existence very long, the group was able to furnish the proper music as background for our Homecoming celebration and helped boost school spirit by playing at all the home football games and a few of the games away from home. ln addition to its regular activities, our newly- organized band played at the basketball games, under the direction of Edgar Cook student conduc- tor, as background for the baton twirling perform- ances given by our freshmen majorettes, Alyce Walter and Charlotte Steiner. ln the plans to return North Central campus to the pre-war status, our college band has played a great part.

During 1944-1945 our Girls' Glee Club has again made itself lcnown on campus. ln order to become a member of this group, the inspiring singer must first prove her lanowledge and ability to sing by participating in competitive try- outs in the early fall, and she must maintain an average scholastic standing. Monday night after Monday night of rehearsal have resulted in some very fine musical performances this year. The high light of the group's activities thus far was the Christmas program given at chapel, at which time the members of the club entertained with some well-lcnown Christmas carols and with the songs of the season which come to us from other lands and are not so well lcnown to most of us. The girls were dressed in traditional old-English costumes, which added greatly to the atmosphere- Their crowning number was given when a human Christmas tree was formed for the final numbers. The organization also had the distinction of having been aslced to entertain at Orchestra Hall in Chicago in December. Plans for spring activities include a concert to be given in Aurora, and the annual Girls' Culee Club concert at Pfeiffer Hall later in the season. Miss Mary Coole, our able conductress with the catching southern accent, has spent much time and effort in training the group and deserves much praise for her worthy worl4.

No sooner was the octette organized than it began to receive invitations to sing. The group is composed of eight men who have a deep interest in choral worlc. It was organized so that the men might partalce more abundantly in male ensemble singing. The octette has appeared in various churches in and out of Naperville, in college chapel, and was an outstanding part in the College Day Program- Members of the group are Richard Senn and l"larvey Gabel, first tenors, Kenneth Kortemeier and Florian Schultz, second tenors, l-loward l-lahn and Keith Witmer, baritone, and Charles Britton and Don Theuer, bass. Lester Smith is the ac- companist. CHAPEL CHOIR One of the most used groups, and yet most often forgotten when praises are handed out, is our Chapel Choir. Chapel Choir has become a traditional group on the campus, serving effectively every Monday and Wednesday at the chapel services, providing a musical baclcground and atmosphere for the religious services which talce place at that time. Professor Pinney directs the choir, and they are accompanied on the organ by Miriam Attig. This year the student conductor has been lona Wendlend and Blossom Rhode has been president of the organization. Our Chapel Choir this year has been exception- ally fine, and the group is one of the largest in the history of the school. Chief among its special programs is the annual Christmas chapel program of music from l'landel's "Messiah," and the Easter musical chapel program. ,. Y,...M---....,-.. stiff K .5 - . '.

The French club was organized on campus last year, and alter a successful first year, it was decided to proceed with it again this year. Meetings are held once a month, and at such times any attending member gets his practice in speaking French. It is really the modern way ot learning a language-hearing somebody else speal4 it and trying it out for yourself. OF course, there are some queer words at times, when some- body gets his vocabulary a bit confused, but practice malces perfect, and these students are aiming at perfection. The meetings usually consist of little slcits in French, some singing of French songs, and French games. At the Christmas meeting, a candle-lighting service, all in French, was held and the initiation of new members tool4 place.

The season started oft with a picnic for all old members ol the group and for all interested in a club which would be able to help them in clothes designing, food preparation, or better personal appearance. The meeting was well-attended, and many new "converts" were gained for the club. One ol the meetings ol the year featured a spealcer from the Ponds cosmetic company, who spolce on a topic pertaining to cosmetics and proper malce-up. All enjoyed this meeting, and some benefitted from it very much. The annual Christmas party was held this year again, with a special Christmas program. l.ater a buffet supper was held at Johnson cottage, the home economics department practice house, at which time the members were entertained by the johnson cottage girls. The biggest feature ol the program ol the Home Ec club was their annual spring banquet, which was held in April. Chief among those who have made this organiza- tion such an active one on the campus this year, and who have contributed time and energy to malce its program worthwhile for all its members are its capable otficers, headed by Blanche Feldott, president, lane Oertli, vice president, lane Gabel, secretary, and Marion Stengel, treasurer. ,The faculty advisors have been Miss Quilling and Miss Keitzman. ff 'Q A, 4 , .5 1, ,,wWWnW,, STANDING-Kirchmcin, Stritfler, Metzl, Biedermon, Grandliencrrd, Knittle.

COMMERCE CLUB Students interested in the commercial subjects have an organization which enables them to gain a better lcnowledge ol their chosen field, brings them many hours of enjoyment and lun in their meetings, and gives them an opportunity to hear from men who are recognized in the world of business. The group this year has had as its president l-lerb Witl4osl4e, who has been in charge of the meetings. Benny Yoshinaga has handled the financial affairs of the club, and Professor Kerr has been the able and helpful faculty advisor. At the first meeting ol the year, held in the Union room ol Old Main, where most of the meet- ings are held, an initiation service was held lornew members, and plans lor the year were carefully discussed. Commerce club was in charge of a chapel program which featured itallcs by various members enlightening the student body about the activities ol the club. While Commerce Club is smaller in numbers now than formerly, a feature caused, oi course, by the war, the students who remain are doing what they can to learn the facts and the trade which will enable them to enter the Fight being carried on on the home front. The need for more persons in the business field, especially in the field of teaching commerce subjects has been stressed at their meetings, and insight into the various professions which will be open to commerce students alter the war has been studied.

Every other Monday night the Union Room opens its doors early to a select group . . . none other than the zoology students. They surge in cmd settle down into comfortable chairs arranged about one focal point. The rest of the hour is filled with delightful surprises. Who knows but what one member may present a paper on how the bull frog whips out its tongue and begins a long tedious process of engulfing a serpent many times its size. Perhaps it's an account of the Conscious Objectors' cooperation in the search for the most efficient lice powder for army usel Then again a book report, the remarkable sulfa drugs, a movie, and a host of other topics supply the interests which draw the zoology stu- dents to these discussions. An alumnus in the service, medical school, nurses training, or in the research field cannot place his foot within the vicinity ofthe campus on the designated Monday night without being invited to make a return visit to the organization and incidentally remark upon his experiences since he emerged from the portals of the zoology lab. Zoo students aren't allergic to work when it means dissection but should dusting come into the picture, wouldn't it be a happy day to be announced allergic to dust? ln case the reader fails to follow, this refers to the remarkable dis- covery a number of the members made at one meeting after submitting to various tests for allergies. The big welts on the arms of the allergic drew the 'ohs' and 'ahs' of those unable to produce like results. 'How do you spell archeopteryx?' 'Name three marsupialsf 'What animal does the following tune call to mind . . .'?' And similar queries give enjoyment to the onlookers as the frustrated mem- bers of the opposing teams in 'the battle of the sexes' search the inner recesses of their brains for bits of knowledge stored there. interesting enough to note, the outnumbered boys seem to push to the fore and on the last stretch edge into top position. Following the trails of Brookfield Zoo to monkey island, to the lion house, to watch the antics of the bewhiskered seals, and to the picnic tables where potato salad by the gallon presented an enticing sight to hungry students, the Zoo Club members enjoyed a fall field trip. To climax the season before the holidays set in, the club took over the facilities of the fieldhouse and had a rousing Christmas party. The organization holds the same officers as Beta Beta Beta, namely, President Florence Mayer, Vice-president Doris Gamertsfelder, Secretary- treasurer Margaret Schloerb, Historian Mildred Wolf, and Usher Dave Rall. WRlTER'S CLUB Have you seen the bulletin board lately? If you have, you must have seen the sign telling you to be sure and not miss the meeting of the Writeris Club every alternate Monday night at the White- house. This is an all-college organization which welcomes everyone, especially if he is accom- panied by a manuscript. These prose and poetic contributions are read anonymously, so the criti- cisms are franlc as well as spirited and pertinent, with everyone talcing an active part, including the authors discussing their worlcs openly without revealing their identities. Gathered around the fireplace, Ted Rockwood, the president, reads the manuscripts, and each contribution is carefully considered and discussed noting structure, use of words, original ideas, and many other features. This often results in a sugges- tion that the more times it is written over, the better it becomes. The effect the worlf creates is an interesting, and sometimes important part and determines to some extent public reaction if it would be published. The guiding influence is Professor White, whose suggestions, and comments bring into evidence his own philosophical outloolc, and helps the members to express their ideas more clearly. Marian De Wolf is capable as the secretary-treasurer, as well as adding her cleverness to the comments. Every prospective writer should consider this a "must" in the extra-curricular program, and anyone who is interested in literature is assured of a wel- come, and as an added attraction a lunch is served by Mrs. White. An outgrowth of the Writer's Club was started nine years ago when the first Cardinal was published under the direction of Professor White, the members of the club, and the members of Sigma Tau Delta. This has served since as a compilation of the out- standing worlcs produced during the year, and is considered the outstanding and only true literary publication on the campus. Contributions are accepted by anyone interested, including faculty and alumni. These are read over and criticized at the meetings of the clubs previously mentioned. There is also the chance of winning one of the prizes, which total thirty dollars. This publication has been printed for the past five years by Harold White '35. it is presented to the public on College Day by the editor, and copies are available to all. The Editor of this years copy is Audrey Boyer. STANDING-DeWolf, Smith, Schoenherr, Rockwood, Parker, Stedman, Accolo, Kisrow, Milgate, Henrichs, Wilkening.

The Student Sunday School class and Student League merged to form the new Student Evangelical Youth Fellowship. The organization of this Fellowship is based on the pattern of the new general EYF. The governing body is a council, consisting of 15 people, eight students and nine adults. With the guidance oi the Faculty Religious Lite committee chairman, the ohiicers appoint four faculty counselors. Each one is to be an advisor of one of the tour commissions of the EYF. An adult counselor is appointed by the administration and the two Naperville Evangel- ical churches. It is the worlt of the council to plan the general outline for the program in Student Sunday School class and the vesper hour of the Student EYF. It also has power to take care of any other business which is presented to the organization. The detailed planning is done by the tour com- mission groups. The Spiritual Lite commision is responsible lior the devotional period of the Sunday School class and any service which would come under the leading of spiritual lite or worship. The Commission on Missions has charge of all mission- ary programs. Also it is its duty to sponsor any missionary project. The Social Action commission is to acquaint students with the social trends and their duties as Christian citizens in our national and world order. Entertainment is the job of the Recrea- tion commission. The four commissions work together to form a well-rounded program for Christian youth. This year the organization has sponsored a missionary project in the form of giving partial support to Gladys Eversol-,NCC '43,who is now a missionary at Red Bird Mission, Ky. The Student Evangelical Youth Fellowship has come a long way in one year in its program of building Christian character. Much oi this success is due to the able leadership the group has had with Dean Kurth as adult counselor, and Kathleen Chamberlain as president. Other officers are: Al Ebert, vice president, Miriam Attig, secretary, and Dwight Busacca, treasurer. STANDING--Young, Striffler, Skcrrtved, Breithaupt, Chamberlain, Busacca. SEATED'4Rev.

SEAGER ASSOCIATION Pre-ministerial students on the campus have an organization all their own--the Seager association, so-named for Bishop Seager, a former leader in our church. It is the purpose of the Seager association to study the problems which face the ministers in the world ol today,and to plan lor a luture in their work which will enable them to alleviate some of the troubles which come under their scope as ministers of the Gospel. Because ol the 4-D deferrment of ministerial students, this group of pre-theology students is one ol the largest organizations on campus, and, because ot the nature of its line of study, it has the distinction ot being the only campus organization with an all-male membership. Under the guidance ol Dr. l'laag, faculty advisor, the group has had the opportunity this year of looking into the correlated happenings in the religious world at a time of war. They have heard reports on the Cleveland peace conference, and many of the other activities oi religious groups working today. One lecture enjoyed by these members was given by a representative ol the University of Chicagogchool of Theology, and it dealt with a report of the academic stubjects which would best benefit a student preparing for ministerial work. The Fellowship of Reconciliation of North Central's campus has also had its core, and the most ol its members as well, from this group of pre-Thes. Many are also members of Student Volunteers, a group which has for its purpose the study of mission work. l.eo Kisrow has been president of the group during the last year, Bernard Wahl, vice president, and Dwight Busacca has served as secretary.

CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION just as the newly-organized E.Y.F. council coordinates the religious activities oi the college students oft the campus, the Christian associations of the college assume almost complete responsi- bility for the religious activities which take place on the campus. The Christian associations are made up of the Young Women's Christian Association and the Young Men's Christian Association. A board, composed of cabinet members oi the two organiza- tions, is called "Central Committee," and it is through the Central Committee that much of the work of the two organizations is carried out. Regardless oi the fact that the two organizations do much of their planning and working together, each exists as a separate unit, and each carries a large membership list, as there are no membership requirements for admission into either "Y", Each "Y" starts the year with help to the fresh- men in getting located at their new college home by providing big sisters and big brothers for all new students. Formal banquets climax the big sister and big brother activities at the end oi the first week. A general get-together all-college party is sponsored also during the First week of school in order to give the various classes a chance to meet the students they do not know in their own and other classes. The party last September was known as the Cardinal Caboodle. The Y.W.C.A. has been able to have a Few features which the Y.lVi.C.A., because oi the nature of their sex and the number in their organiza- tion, has been unable to have. Throughout the year, there have been various all-college meetings sponsored by the Y.W. which stressed campus etiquette, racial problems, etc. The Y.W. has also observed its annual Heart Sister week, just preceding Valentines day, and terminated with a valentine tea in the social room of the college library, at which time the identity of Heart Sisters was revealed. So lar as combined activities are concerned, the Central committee has been busy all year with plans to instill within North Central students the deeper meanings oi Christianity and to build Christian character. One of the first means of doing this was by conducting Religious Emphasis Week, starting Nov. 5, at which time Rev. Howard Y.W.C.A.

Orians, NCC '22, pastor of the Bethel Evangel- ical church, Milwaukee, was the speaker. He spoke at chapel time every day that week on various phases of the Christian life, emphasizing the need for a practical and balanced attitude toward the elements which make up the "whole" Christian. The new year was marked by the launching of the annual project known as international lnsti- tute week the first part of January, at which time three speakers were featured. Rabbi James A. Wax, of the United Hebrew Congregation, St. Louis, Mo., now occupying the pulpit of a North Shore church, spoke concerning "The Jew and American Democracy." Mrs. Setsuko Matsunaga Nishi spoke on "The Japanese Question in America",and Horace R. Cayton gave a lecture on the Negro problem in American society. The spring feature of the Central committee is vocational guidance week, when men and women who are experienced in a certain vocation come in to speak to the college students concerning the possibilities and the openings in their chosen fields. Some of the less publicized, and yet important features which are carried out by the combined cabinets of the two Christian organizations on our campus include the fall retreat, usually held at the Cflarden Club cabin, and a mid-winter retreat, held in Naperville, the responsibility of the chapel committees to plan a devotional service for chapel every other week, the institution of a financial drive, a drive for books for prisoners of war, and many other activities. The fellowship committees of the two organiza- tions have been especially active this year, keeping open the Upper Room, on the fourth floor of Qld Main, for private devotional worship, the planning of a period of meditation and worship in Pfeiffer Hall every Tuesday morning, and the establishment on campus again of the custom of having All College Prayer Services every Wednesday evening in Smith Hall. Another feature of the work of these religious groups has been the responsibility of providing Sunday School teachers to go to Mooseheart, lll., every Sunday morning to help conduct the services at that place.

It is the group which includes the editors and business managers of the various college publications and the iaculty advisors. It has executive powers to remove from the statts ot the publications anybody whose grades do not reach an average level, and it recommends to the Student Council the editors and business managers for the next year. The advisors have the not-too-enviable job of spurring on those who tend to procrastinate and oi seeing that the best possible results are obtained on the budgets on which the publications must operate. THE ALUMNI NEWS The Alumni News is just what the name implies- now numbering nearly 25,000. It contains the news about the alumni oi North Central college. information about the activities of the college It is a quarterly publication edited by Miss Re-ilt, at the present time, as well as news ot other and sent to former North Central College students alumni. THE CHRONICLE. "Why wasn't my article in this week's Chronicle?" "Gee, did you read that editorial this week? lt's a hum-dinger and l sure hopeitdoes some good. ' "Who walked off with my copy? l'd swear it was right here a minute ago." These and many others are the comments one is likely to hear if he walks into the busy little room in the basement of Old Main where the Chronicle has its office. Comments of praise, of condemna- tion, and just plain comments are nothing new to the Chronicle staff, for they're the people whose mistakes, when they make them, appear in print for all to see. Criticisms are usually received, but orchids are in order also for the fine work our Chronicle has done this year, under the editorship of Dick Lehmann. With the moving of the Chronicle office back down to its former abode in the basement of Old Main, larger space for larger staff was available again, and working conditions were much more convenient than last year. After a frantic Search for the combination to the safe, it was made avail- able again for the use of the staff for storing valu- able back number copies of the paper and other possessions which are valuable to the college news office. Through the kindness of Mr. Wolf, mainte- nance man, some new shelves were made to be occupied by files of the Chronicle. The staff this year has been unusually efficient, using more pictures in the paper than have been used in many years, and keeping up to date on all college affairs. The editorials have also been above average. Lots of hard work and burning of the midnight oil has made this year's Chronicle one of the best in years. Carol Preston has been in charge of the business matters of the paper again this year, and the experience of last year's work has enabled her to do a bang-up job in her line of work this year.

Dreams of a carefree college life do not go hand in hand with editorship of a college publication,we can tell you that. A horrible gnawing fear ol the 15th ol each month, and a terrific horror ol the ldes of March are more likely to characterize the life of one upon whose shoulders the responsibility of putting together a college annual rests. The 15th of each month, you see, marks another dead- line, and that means that the night of the 14th of each month shall be spent in the confines of a cold little room in the northwest corner of Old Main madly mounting pictures and writing copy. The business end of the book is no light matter either, and it requires more detailed work than many who read the book could ever imagine. Yes, we've spent many hours to bring you this 1945 Spectrum, and we've missed classes, lost sleep, and sacrificed many other pleasures to do it, but we count it all as a part of our job and ci part of the college tradition concerning an editor and business manager. .

Not too much publicity is given this office, and once the election is over, the majority of students promptly forget about the Athletic Board of Control and never even stop to wonder what it does and how its actions effect them. The Athletic Board of Control, it is true, worl4s very quietly, but it is very active and exerts much more influence over the N.C.C. students than they realize. The Board is made up of the elected president, all the physical education teachers, the president of the Women's Athletic Association, the ticlcet manager, and Professor l-lower. It has full control over all inter-collegiate athletics and relationships with other colleges. Before a Cardinal athlete may obtain that much- coveted letter, his name must come up before this important board and be approved before the award is his. The Board also sets up the standards for participation in all college athletics and checlcs to see that these standards are carried out. One of its other duties is to pass on all bills which are connected with athletics on the campus in any manner. This even includes approval of cleaning bills for varsity baslcetball suits. The president of the board this past year has been Margaret Schloerb. "N-O-R-T-H C-E-N-T-R-A-L" The "kick-off" Two points more!

A never failing co-worlcer is the president, Doris Gamertsfelder. The worlc is dealt out to others, but someone has to tie the loose ends and lceep the whole works on an even keel. Dorie supervises officially, but unoflicially she's up to her neclc in every project of the club, be it a banquet, a party, tournament, or what-have- youl Busily following her up is the vice-president, Janie Oertli. The two remaining officers are Florence Mayer as secretary and Norma Stahl who is eternally buzzing about, either collecting or disbursing money. The Board's only begun when the officers are included. -l'here's lots to be loolced alter and so each sport has its own top girl to see that things are functioning right. For instance, Gladys Das- sow's the girl to register complaint with if there's grievances about the catastrophic results ol: the soccer tournament from the point of view of all but the high and mighty Seniors. Wanda Houghton managed the volley ball season, followed up by jane Gabel who toolc over the baslclball worries. Spring brings the problem of tearing the girls away from the clutches of spring Fever and down to the baseball diamond, and those difficulties were assigned to Betty Schendel. The other team sport of swimming culminates in a hotly-contested, 'leudin'swimming meet,and there's only one salva- tion-to have it well under control before starting, so that's what Dot Medendorp did. Our star 'archer', Betty Bishop, rated the taslt of coaching the potential Robin Hoods how to master the Fine art. On top of all this she held badminton manager- ship too. Harriet Beiderman did her best to tempt hilcers to brave the elements, and Phyl Schendel lined up tournaments for tennis honors in doubles and singles. Another double-duty job found its way to Audrey Boyer. She's what one terms the supervisor of bowling and ping-pong.

NORTH CENTRAL'S YELL LEADERS A lot of the spirit which has been prevalent at all our sports events this year is due to the very efficient Cardinal cheer leaders, who have lunc- tioned time and time again in their attractive red and white outfits. Given a real worlcout at Homecoming time, they continued to function throughout the football season and were present at every baslcetball game to arouse school spirit and plenty oi pep. Weelcly practices enabled them to worlc together effectively on various yell routines which added to the general color and atmosphere ol sports events. Our cheer leading corps this year has included "Whitey" Bussaca, Mary Vandercoolc, lane Allen, Lee Arseny, Nancy Barnes, and Allen Hosler. When Allen had to leave us to enter the services, l-lelen Thornton resumed her position as one of the cheer leaders to help out. Too often receiving little credit for the good worlc they do, nevertheless, the spirit of sports at college would not have been at all high had it not been for our competent leaders, directed by "Cookie" Busacca, Barnes, Allen, Arseny, Vcmdercook, Hosler.

Alter an absence ol one year from our campus, King Football returned this year, mal4ing the whole college seem more lilce the pre-war days than it has been for a long time. Coach Lon Bieber was appointed acting director ol athletics this year and assumed the position of coach ol the football squad. Worlcing with a team mostly inexperienced, he made progress, and soon had as tough a team as was possible under the circumstances. Only four games were scheduled lor the season, and we sutfered three defeats, but we leel that the one game won was deserving of all the bruises and injuries sustained by members ol the team. The First game ol the season was on' Oct. 7, with our old rivals, Wheaton College. We were downed 20 to O, and four ol our starting men were injured enough to be put out ol action temporarily. The Homecoming game with Concordia on Oct. 14 resulted in another defeat, this time to the tune ol 19 to O. The inexperience and lightness ol the Cardinal squad was greatly evidenced in this, the only home game of the season. At last on Oct. 28, we were able to score two touchdowns, thanlcs to big Ed Brown and Milce Minato, to defeat Elmhurst 13 to 12. The last game ol the season was at River Forest with Concordia again, and resulted in our defeat by one point in a score ol Concordia 7, North Central 6.

By the end oi the season, many had, oi course, dropped out, and others were forced to leave because oi their draft status. However, the North Central Cardinals plugged ahead, and in spite oi their inexperience Qonly iour had been on the team last yearb, they managed to win three games during the season. The iirst game oi the season went over with o bang. The Redbirds scored a victory to the tune of 36 to 28 over Concordia Teachers, of River Forest. Ed Zager, smooth center, who later leit for the navy, was high scorer with 13 counters. As the season proceeded, the Cardinals seemed to piclc up speed and team play, but their size and inexperience was against them, and they lost Wylcle, Rilcer, Berger, Lubach. their second game to their old rivals, Wheaton, 34-30. Again Zager was high scorer. At the Elmhurst game on December 12, North Central suffered defeat, 44-40, this time being Zager's last game before he left for navy service. The game with Northern lllinois Teachers was the last of the season also for Tommy Nitta, rapid little guard, who had added so much to the team, and who was now forced to leave for the army. Other important losses to the team from this time on to the end of the season included Warren Otto and the two Finke boys, who left school to do their bit for the war on the home front. By the end of the season, a fairly stable team had been established and was able to work to- gether quite well. Berger was high point man for North Central for the season. He and Don Rilcer served as co- captains of this year's squad, and Berger was elected to serve as captain next season. Mulhall Yenerich Ol-'F bull! Riker iumpsl 95 Lubcch scores BASKETBALL..

The meet was held at Augustana college, Rock island, illinois. We also won three other meets and dropped two. ln the conference meet, Ralph Steben, captain ot the team, turned in his best performance of the year, leading the individual scorers with 16 points, talcing first in the 100 yard dash, Q20 dash, broad jump, and topped it Ott as anchor man on the winning relay team.

With a group ol almost all Freshmen, Coach Peter- son has made a fine record in indoor traclc this year in spite ol the inexperience ol his men. Steben, Brown, l'lemmer, l'loesch, l'laclc, and Wahl were all experienced, it is true, but Barr, Queen, Wonder, Elliott, Theuer, Yenerich, and Reilce were all new to the team this year, and they have all helped malce the team better. There have been several tracl4 meets this season, with North Central winning one early in the year lrom Concordia and Morton junior College, and dropping meets with Chicago, Wheaton, and lllinois Tech. The relay team ran in the Chicago Daily News meet in Chicago this spring, too. Perhaps the most important of the traclt events this year was the invitational midwestern tracl4 meet held in our field house in March, in which about 100 men from a dozen colleges participated. Aside from being host college, North Central wallced all: with several Firsts and placed fourth in the entire meet, two of the teams beating her having navy men to help up their score. MEN'S VARSITY TENNIS ln the world of sports North Central can be proud of her 1944 tennis squad. The men came through undefeated in five dual meets and climaxed the season with victory in the Conference Meet. Under the coaching of Dr. Keeler the men responsible for this record are Melvin Goldman, Fred Kirn, Charles Young, and Roger Beyler. The season's tollies are: NCC .... 4 Elmhurst . . . EZ NCC .... 3 U. of Chicago . . . 3 NCC .... 6 Elmhurst . . . . . O NCC .... 6 Wheaton . . . . O NCC .... 6 Wheaton . . . . O The Conference Meet resulted in a tie for first place between Bradley and North Central. Beyler and Kim toolf top honors in the doubles, and Kirn made his way to the position of runner-up in the in the singles tournament. Thus ended a success- ful year in tennis. THE WATER BALLET Reviving a custom which has not been seen on our campus since the start of the war, members of the W.A.A. and the swimming classes of the college got together again this year and planned a water ballet, which was given in March. Much of the credit for the success of the affair goes to Constance Gross, lane Allen, and Helen Thornton, who were chairmen of the event and responsible for the plans. Nichols pool was transformed for the occasion into a tropical paradise, complete with leafy palm trees, green grass, canoes, and hula girls. Various excellent lighting effects were used to help create atmosphere, as the Merner mermaids swam relays, formations, and dived. Tropical music also was used. During an interlude, the hula girls entertained with tropical dances. Proceeds of the event were donated to the Red Cross. 9' I l l WOMEN'S VARSITY TENNIS M. Gamertsfelder, Schendel, H.

The team met still competition in the form ol a powerful North Parla squad but went down fighting to the last match. The team was comprised of Herbie Gamertsfelder, Marg Schloerb, Mary Gamertsfelder, and Phyllis Schenclel with Miss Tanner as coach. The highlight of each home match came as the manager, Florence Mayer, served oranges for purposes of reviving sunlcen spirits. All in all, the team had a fair season brealcing OO even with two wins, two losses, one tie, and the sixth game cancelled because of rain. The scores totalled: NCC NCC NCC NCC NCC North Park .....

Mem- bers must live up to the club's requirements and carry a C average in school work. The activities ol the organization are carried out by a W.A.A. Board of Control, headed by Miss Tanner, head of the physical education department for girls. ln the realm of competitive sports, tournaments are carried on throughout the year between classes, between local teams, or individual members inter- ested in a certain activity. These tournaments are played in soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, swimming, bowling, ping pong, tennis, archery, and badminton. With the coming of the war, the need for greater physical Fitness was felt, and since that time, the Women's Athletic Association has had new sig- FIRST ROW-K. Branigan, Brunner, Nieb, Nauman, C.

Steady there! nificance on the campus. ln these years, when the college male population is small in numbers, and when the athletic activities which are usually car- ried out, must be put on a much reduced scale, the importance of women's athletics has received greater notice on the campus. The membership oi the organization is slowly growing from year to Year. The varied program has included a number of sports. ln the early fall, it is a common sight to see a target set up out on Fort Hill campus, and O9 a dozen or soarchers trying for their Robin Hood or Master Archer award. Speedy soccer games in the crisp fall also create a lot oi rivalry between the classes and prepares the college team for the annual Homecoming game with the former soccer champions oi the college. When the irosts come, a variety of activities present themselves to these ambitious members, chief among them being volleyball, basketball, ping-pong, tennis, badminton, and swimming.

Leaders in the swimming classes assist with the teaching ol swimming in the physical education classes, and during the past year presented a swim- ming show, a water ballet, in the setting of "Trop- ical Paradisef' It was the first oi such events to be presented here since the outbreak oi the war and attracted many spectators. The warm afternoons ol spring bring out the base- balls and the game is on. Other activities for which the girls may earn credit include bowling, hilcing, and bicycling. Many a busy junior or senior who still needed some physical education credit for graduation has been able to participate in W.A.A. activities for her credit. Greatest among the activities of the Women's Athletic Association has been the preparation of stunts and exhibitions in folic-dancing, tumbling, marching, and many other physical education ac- tivities oi the May Fete, held in connection with College Day in May. These events, sponsored and directed by the W.A.A., include all fresh- men and sophomore girls in the college. Lesson No 1--on land! Kicking exercises!

" 4 O6 l wonder ii there was ever a Freshman or new student who came to North Central and didn't leel the welcome oi the First weelc. If there was, said student must have been completely non-social, for there is a planned program for all new students whichfgfoccupied all the time which they aren't using for taldng tests, unpaclcing clothes, and try- ing to remember which girl it is who shares that room in Kaufman. The various activities come under the auspices oi every organization on campus from the "Y's" to the "Dames" organization. The Cardinal Caboodle started the lun this year. Frosh, new students, old students, and laculty as- sempled in Nichols hall the first evening of the first weelc for a get-acquainted party and lor a little display to new students of some of the talent within N. C. Cfs confines. Refreshments for all ended the evening. Not least among the memories ol our students is the night of the Torch-l.ight parade. Remember how high those Frosh carried those torches? And remember how much lun it was to run along with that mob oi students as they paraded through town and stopped at the main intersection ior a A .i45.,. i, X. i i i 1 F cheering session? The high school band furnished the music that l4ept spirits high. The parade con- tinued, then, to the presidentls house, where Presi- dent and Mrs. Rall welcomed the student body. Crashing the local theater ended the evening and upheld the old tradition concerning the conclusion of a periect torch-light parade. The "Dames," that group of faculty wives, came in for their share oi entertaining by giving their annual tea on Thursday afternoon at the President's house. This was the first chance For many of the girls to meet the counterpart oi those as-yet strange men who were to be their professors at North Central. The Final touch to that First weels came with the Big-Little Sister and Big-Little Brother banquets on Friday night. The "Y's" sponsored these events as a climax to their activities as big sisters and big brothers to all strangers on campus. The girls' banquet was Formal, and had the setting oi Dream- land. The Fellows' banquet was less formal, but just as much fun, so we're told. The male quartet and the girls' octette entertained at each of the banquets. O Hold those torches higher, Frosh! The Stag line! Receiving orders! I l l l HOMECGMING . . . nc! dl rede -f r Queen "Augie" "Cookie" gives it her all. Homecoming at North Central! What a dayl To all Former students, it is a day For coming back to the Alma Mater to see whether present-day stu- dents are carrying on the traditions and activities as they did back in 1932, 1924, or whatever year they happened to be here. It is a day packed with the renewal of old friendships, walks down along the pond, the Du Page, and favorite haunts. The 1944 Homecoming wasn't as well attended as some former Homecomings, it's true, but many ol the alums did get back for the day. The very first feature of the Homecoming cele- bration this last year was the selection of a Chronicle Homecoming Queen to reign over the festivities. Marion Augustine was chosen by popular vote. The annual bonfire was held again on Fort Hill, and a general cheering session was held. Homecoming Day itself :dawned bright and The Homecoming band. "Are you ready?" O8 l That soccer gamel clear, and the usual college-alumni soccer game was held in the morning. Since football made a comeback on our cam- pus, it was very fitting that the afternoon program should be devoted to a game between our school and Concordia. Local fans were disappointed to see the Cardinals lose to a much larger and more experienced team to the score of 19-O. The parade was one of the longest and most colorful that North Central fans have witnessed in a long time. The Michigan float nosed out the freshman float to win a highly contested first place. The evening program consisted of an excellent banquet at First Church for alumni and a musical program at Pfeiffer l-lall, "l l-lear America Sing- ing." Staged in the midst of tall, white columns and cool green grass, the choir of 12 women and eight men under the direction of Edgar Coolf gave a program that all who saw it will remember for its beautiful singing. With appropriate mood set by lighting and song, the narrator, Winifred Breithaupt, told the story of American song. 109 U. S. S.

After the annexa tion of the province of 1948 and the province of new students, Prime Minister Rall welcomed the the new subjects.

It is managed mostly by the social committee of the college, but several of the parties throughout the year are sponsored by the W.A.A. or the Student Council. Those of our readers who have been here in former years will remember the slfating parties and the County Fair, which have been a part of this year's program also. Other performances which have occurred in the Nichols Hall for the benefit of the pleasure of NCC students this past year have included the annual sports party, held at the first of the year, when all the facilities of the Field house were open to students, under the supervision ol the W.A.A., a "Tall" party, given by the tall girls of the school, an old-fashioned masquerade party, and a cos- tume barn-dance party. N.C.C. at play Swing your partner! The Barber Shop Six 'l'l'l The altar in the "Upper Room" It is the aim ol North Central to mal4e its stu- dents ieel that religion is not something apart from everyday life, but as vital a part ol life as studies, exercises, or eating. To attain this objective, re- ligious activities have played a large part in the program of the college. Chapels every Monday and Wednesday are oi a devotional nature. The Christian organizations on our campus have been very active, giving the students a mixture oi the serious and social side oi religion, and carry out a very active program throughout the entire year. The college Evangelical Youth Fellowship group conducts activities of a religious nature which talce place oft campus, such as being responsible for the Sunday School class and the Sunday evening vespers. They have also undertalcen several proj- ects, chiei among which is the support ol Miss Gladys Eversole, a N. C. C. graduate, who is in mission work at Red Bird, in Kentucky. There is a group oi students in the college who go to Nlooseheart, lll., every Sunday morning, also, to teach Sunday School classes there. This project is of fairly recent origin, and was instigated at the suggestion and plan of Professor Domm. Not least by any means is the group of students who go out on deputation trips to surrounding com- munities to help with religious services. The Seager association is another active religious group on our campus, which is an organization of future ministers. Q CAMPUS RELIGIOUS LIFE fmf. xg? .. ,I 5 One of our deputation teams.

These programs are of the highest type ot entertainment, as well as education, and vary in nature from musical programs to readings and book .eviews. This year the number ol celebrities on our cam- pus has been equal in number and quality to those of any former years. The first program ol the year was an all-girl symphony under the direction of Bohnmir Kryl, famous Czech conductor. Rudolph Ganz, world famous concert pianist, composer, and symphony conductor, appeared on the stage at Pfielter l'lall in November in a com- bined program ol musical performance and a lec- ture on various types of music. His performance was held in connection with the dedication ot the new Steinway concert grand piano, on which the artist played. A violin concert given by the distinguished Polish violinist, Hugo Kolberg, was considered one ot the best given on the campus in many years. Mr. Kolberg entertained with a program varied from a rendition of unaccompanied Bach numbers through the heavy, modern "improvisa- tion" by Bloch, to the humor of the "satirical Dance" by Shostalcovich. Not the least of our entertainment programs was one which included two entertainers, Miss Carol l.ouise Smith, winner of the Chicagoland Music Festival, and Mrs. Kathryn Turvey Garten, who gave a review ol the best-seller, "A Yanlcee From Olympus." Rollo Brown, famous lecturer on world affairs, was also included in the year's program.

JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET This year the juniors gave out with a banquet uniiice any other in the history of North Central. in a year when ali eise is different, the banquet certainly was too. Held at the Baicer Hotel at St. Charles, the juniors entertained the seniors at an informal dinner in the Rainbow Room, ioiiowed by a program which inciuded the address of the evening by Miss Tanner on the subject of tennis. past and present. The after-party inciuded a iioor show which featured everything from the return of Caruso to a showing of the current styies by several of the junior boys. The "Ladies" entertain. On with the dance. CAMPUS ROYALTY High-light of the May Fete each spring is the choosing of some junior girl and fellow to reign as Queen of the May and King Rex, re- spectively, during their senior years at North Central. Queen of the May this year, Phyllis Schendel has had a busy year with her duties as presi- dent of the Y. W. C. A., senior representative on the Student Council, and business manager of the SPECTRUM, to say nothing of preparing For a spring wedding. Rhyl is a local girl now, her family having moved here during her fresh- man year from Minnesota. ,loe Nicoletti, our gracious King Rex, has been absent from the campus this year, having entered medical school in Chicago. However, he has occasionally come back for an evening or a weelc-end to be present at some of the var- ious activities and to loolc out for the well-being of his lcingdom. l 4 i l Cornville characters CGLLEGE DAY. College Day on North Central's campus has come to be second only to Homecoming in im- portance as a day ol celebration. It is instituted as a time when prospective new students and friends of the college may come to Naperville to inspect the school and its various departments. Extensive exhibits in all departments are displayed on this memorable day, which always comes the first or second weelc in May. College Day last spring was preceded by a gen- eral clean-up day, when all the students donned worlt clothes, grabbed wash cloths, ralces, brooms, and any other equipment convenient to beautify and clean the buildings and the campus surround- ing the college. A lesson in cooperation and civic pride, as well as an attractive campus, was the reward given the ambitious students. All 'I6 worl4ers were treated to a chicken supper after- ward at college expense. When College Day itself dawned, visitors were on the go from the early flag-raising to the finish ol the operetta given by the music school in the evening. The morning program featured the annual dress review by the clothing department of the college in a musical background, the styles Fitting the musical mood. Following this fine exhibition, the presentation ol the Cardinal, college literary publication, and the dedication of the SPECTRUM toolf place. The remainder ol the morning was spent visiting exhibits in the art lab, zoo, physics, chemistry, geology, botany, and other laboratories in the college. The afternoon program featured a swimming u ,iTiTf, The royal court -1944 exhibition in Merner pool, and the May Fete. The May Fete was in the form of a program in a war plant, with its gremlins, swing-shift worlcers, victory gardeners, and all the rest. A show ol the prowess ol our physical education departments was given. The crowning point of the May Fe-te was the moment when the new King Rex and Queen of the May were chosen for the coming year, and Queen l'lazel abdicated in favor of the new queen. College Day always ends with some sort of special program, and the last one was no excep- tion. A highly entertaining operetta was given by the music school to malxe the day's program complete. 7 "Marty" presents the 1944 Spectrum Freddie shows us how it works.

Our thanlcs go to all those who have helped us in any way. We are indebted to "l'lermie", Helen, Dorothy, and Mr. Hauschner, of Daguerre Studios, whose cooperation has meant much in helping us meet deadlines. For our cover design, we are grateful to Mr. Cooley, at the S. K. Smith Company. Much of the planning and designing of the book, as well as the engravings, are the work of Mr. Motherway and Mr. Wally Mann, at Pontiac En- gravers, and to Mr. Oliver Rogers, of the Rogers Printing Company, whose advice on inlcs, types, and many of the other details of our book were valuable to us, we say, "Thanl4s loads. We couldn't have got along without you." To the profs, whose classes we interrupted with our picture-talcing schedule and who tolerated unprepared lessons when we were trying to malce a deadline, we also owe a debt of gratitude. 196 Jlfvezfiaem mia Support the following Advertisers.

Ample power enabled the construction and operation of great new war production plants...enabled existing plants to increase production of war materials ...and enabled farmers to produce more food than ever before despite a critical manpower shortage. Yes, electric power played a major role in the phe- nomenal production of wartime, and when Victory is won, industrialists, manufacturers and farmers can count on a plentiful supply of low-cost electricity for peacetime production. Ample electricity will be available to stimulate post- war enterprises-to speed production of products for better living, as well as to serve the farms, the homes and the commercial establishments of Northern Illinois. rtpgvicrom X BUY UNITED STATES WAR - , Bonus .... smmrs ' -.. 1 - fff-f "0 , - . 529- flzlg mf ,jf .w ,P A 53' 4447 ' f-- 1 Rich Farm Lands Hub of America's Transportation N.. ----p ,fg X -N' H-l 4 4 4.

In days to come, you will turn these pages in wistful retrospect, recounting your college friendships, your problems, your triumphs and accomplishments. The fostering of high ideals of service held with high resolve as you leave the sacred halls of learning with your blueprint of the future, must ever be main- tained. May you fully realize your goal, but remember if you cannot realize your ideal, idealize your real. Today as never before, we must blend our idealism with realism. For thirty years I have been endeavoring here in your college town to do this ve1'y thing in the very important profession of Pharmacy with it's many responsibilities, including the filling of Prescriptions and the recom- mending for sale drugs and medicines for the preventions and cure of human ailments. Today Pharmacy can well be proud of the splendid progress it has made in its production of newer and more effective mediciments, in the prevention and mitigation of disease, most truly we are in business for your health. So may you, too, be able in retrospect, to say, "I gave my best, I have idealized my real". In facing the problems of this war torn realistic world, STICK TO YOUR GUNS.
