To all those who have helped us through
college by furnishing the conveniences which
we all too olten have talcen for granted, we
wish to show our appreciation. To one of the
greatest of these, A. E. "Dadi' Weyricl4, we
dedicate this thirty-sixth volume ol the
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
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.

The library seal has become sacred
to us as representing the standards of
North Central. 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

Perhaps the busiest man on campus, our chief
executive, Dr. Rall still finds time to have confer-
ences with students who need his advice. 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
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.

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
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..
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-
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:

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
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
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

the entire history of the class of 1947 thus far at
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
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.
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.

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
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

Centralites. This was just our first appearance but

"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.

as president of the Student Body, lack Stedman,

duced some of the best parties North Central has
ltnown-and North Central has lfnown some good
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
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

Last year's Spectrum made the following state-

"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

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

midst of Beta Beta Beta. Not on your lifel There's

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

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.

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.

group say that a member must be an English major
and must have a B average in all subjects.

Twenty years of Pi Gamma Mu existence have

of having been one of the charter members of the

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

meet at Bloomington.

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

the musical commentary programs and translations

chapel program presented Don Grambsch, winner
of the Chicagoland music festival, in a half hour of

"Music hath charm," and certainly this is true
when the music comes from the voices of a group
of lovely-to-loolc-at college women.
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-

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

E. Y. F. COUNCIL
ln the spring oi 1944 a new organization came
into existence on North Central campus. The
Student Sunday School class and Student League
merged to form the new Student Evangelical Youth
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-
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
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.

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
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

during the last year, Bernard Wahl, vice president,

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-

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

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.

The publications board is small but mighty. 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.

"Gee, did you read that editorial this week?

"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-

THE SPECTRUM ..
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. .
Much, much credit is due to our respective
helpers-to Bernie Wahl for mounting all our
pictures For us, to Johnny Beher and David Rall
for their photography work, to Herbie Gam for
the art work on the division pages and her countless
other little ways of helping Cincluding carrying

ATHLETIC BOARD of CQNTROL
Every spring the students at North Central vote

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
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.

been Margaret Schloerb.

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-

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.

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

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.

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,

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
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
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.
Class play-offs in each oi these activities create
a lot of interest and school spirit among the girls.
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.

FIRST WEEK TRADITIONS . . .
Little Sisters dine.
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
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

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.

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
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.

A very active social program is carried out at
North Central. 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.

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
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.

people. These programs are of the highest type

This year the number ol celebrities on our cam-
pus has been equal in number and quality to

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-

was held in connection with the dedication ot the

Polish violinist, Hugo Kolberg, was considered

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

he has occasionally come back for an evening

ious activities and to loolc out for the well-being
of his lcingdom.
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
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

Without the help of some of our professional
Friends this boolc could not have been published.
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.
Support the following Advertisers. They have given
financial aid to the 1945 Spectrum. Your patronage
will be an expression of thanks for their cooperation.

H w ample low-cost electricity
stimulates enterprises in this area
The abundant supply of electric power in this area
helped to make possible development of the mid-
western region into America's largest war production
center. 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
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.

lVIemory's Album grown more sacred through the passing years. 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-
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.
