The 1955 SPECTRUM
Invites You to Come
UNDER THE BIG TCP OF
lb h k
Dr. Richard M. Eastman
The class of 1955 takes great pleasure
in dedicating this, the forty-fifth volume of
the SPECTRUM, to Dr. Richard M. Eastman:
a wonderful personality, a true friend, and
above all, a fine teacher in every sense of
"Life is a circus" is defined as a colloquial expression which
is used by the youth of today in a flippant manner to denote a
pleasant life. Studying this phrase a little more, we can see, how-
ever, that it has a deeper meaning which can be applied to all
of our life. From the point of view of a circus observer, these few
words bring to mind the excitement and color of a circus whirling
around together to form "great fun." But, from the standpoint
ofa circus performer, this phrase means something else. It means
the excitement, the tension, the disappointments, the wrangling,
and the adventure which all go into setting up a circus. It also
means the ultimate happiness which comes from seeing a per-
formance go well and a thronging crowd to enjoy it- a happi-
ness which blots out all the previous disappointments and strains.
So it is with life at North Central. Under the big top of Old
Main, there is the excitement and the disappointments which go
into forming an individual, and there is also the happiness which
comes from seeing the person develop into a mature individual
with intelligence and social poise. In the following pages, then,
will be found the history of the circus which took place in 1955
"Under the Big Top of North Central."

Dr. C. Harve Geiger
Dr. C. Harve Geiger, the ring master of the Big Top continues to lead North
Central with integrity and dignity. He has been president of North Central College
for eight years and has had a great deal of experience as a leader in the field
In 1922 Dr. Geiger received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University
of Chicago, in 1928 his Master of Arts degree from Harvard University, and in
1940 his Doctor of Philosophy degree from Columbia University.
The star performers and trainers at North Central feel that Dr. Geiger has
assisted them in many ways. They look to him for guidance, friendship and
understanding. His work under the Big Top and elsewhere has promoted interest
in the college and has spread a feeling of good-will for North Central.
Dr. Geiger's office, located in the "Main" arena, is always open to those who
seek his advice and counsel. It is through this genuine spirit of interest, that Dr.
Geiger is known as "our friend."

THE SENIOR CLASS
Ladies and Gentlemen! Presenting at this time
for your pleasure, the feature attraction of this
great season-the one and only senior class of
1955! Brought to you at great expense from all
parts of the world, these star performers have
gone through long hours of extensive and ardu-
ous labor to perfect their varied skills. From the
year 1951 when their ears tingled at the call of
"Hey Rube" on up the climb to the center ring of
the elite, this class has shown that man to man
they have what it takes to make the grade here
in the Big Top.
Their respective ringmasters have put them
through their paces most diligently, and though
we might have lost a few to the lure of the "out-
side," the main body of the group still stands
ready to show their wares. In their first year of
apprenticeship, these green but plucky perform-
ers sallied forth under Ed Eigenbrodt's direction,
who received willing help from Dick Norenberg,
Neil Nielsen, Sylvia Ebinger, Chris Arneson and
Mimi Flickinger in getting off on the right foot
under the Big Top. Showing considerable spunk
if little else, they took part in the various side
shows at North Central and startled a few of the
seasoned performers by their success.
In their sophomore year they returned ready
to take over the "Big Show" but couldn't quite
evict the headlines holding sway. By dint of hard
work, they prepared themselves for their big
day when the ringmasters would hush the house
for their debut. Bud Hayes, aided by Bob Mc-
Bride, Jane Koten, Ken Lewis, Sylvia Ebinger and
Jim Kalas laid the foundations on which stardom
was made. ln their Junior year, they came back
showing flashes of greatness that would one day
be theirs by bringing down the house on several
of the feature acts such as the All-School Talent
Show and the Jr.-Sr. Prom. Dick Norenberg led
the year's successful entry into the "big time"
along with Lyle Littlewood, Grant Schmidt, Jim
Kalas, Mimi Flickinger and Lucille Williamson.
As the year draws to an end, our now show-
wise headliners step forward to take their places
ln the starring roles-in the student government,
fields of athletics, religious activities and in the
classroom. In this, their final effort, Dick Wood-
ward, supported by Ken Lewis, Neil Nielsen,
Carol Roehm, Mimi Flickinger and Jim Klein
showed the way. Like true showmen the class of
1955 has responded beautifully! Hats off to the
feature players of our show-the class of 1955!

THE JUNIGR CLASS
Leaving behind days of tugging ropes and
soph-frosh scraps, the Juniors returned in the
fall, with the same energy and united by class
spirit to progress on the ladder of new and im-
portant responsibilities as Juniors.
With enthusiasm, the Juniors whole-heartedly
dug into money-making proiects. The class had
the concession stand, at football games and the
coat-check at basketball games. The class ioined
together and participated in an all-class work-
day to raise money for the Junior-Senior Ban-
quet. Other money raising proiects were the
class's famous annual pizza party and the Talent
Beginning the plans and the work early in the
year under the direction of the co-chairmen,
Marge Senn and Jack Reardon, the banquebtook
place very successfully on April 29th, at the
famous Tam O'Shanter.
Leading the class to success through its third
year were: Lou Allbee as President, Dale Rosen-
dahl as Vice-president, Darlene Heilman as Sec-
retary, Dean Stoffer as Treasurer. Barb Carlson,
Women's representative, and Carl Holubetz,
Men's representative attended Student Council
meetings for the Juniors. Jack Steckel, social
chairman, provided the year's fun and entertain-
ment. Joy Madden represented the class on the
all-school Social Commission.
Looking back, the Class of 1956 has many
happy memories, and looking forward, the Jun-
iors predict another successful and memorable

THE SOPHCMORE CLASS
In a somewhat dazed condition, a large group
of "greenies" were able to survive the freshman
year and earn the honorable title of "sopho-
mores." The ridiculous thought of becoming a
senior grew more realistic every day: "-if our
minds and bodies could stand it, we might even
make it some day."
Aside from the ever-present and equally neg-
lected demands of our profs, we were able to
fill all our requirements during the year: survival
of Woe Week fdoubtfull, Tug-o-War Chad to carry
the rope backll, bonfire and all the other menial
tasks allocated to the lowly frosh.
The threat from the faculty at the end of each
semester only strengthened our spirits and when
we returned in the fall of '54, we took over the
new frosh with zeal in the tug-o-war. The frosh-
soph scrap proved equal strength on both sides
and we settled down to a hard year of extra-
curricular activities. The noble sign of a sopho-
more can be found in just about every activity
on campus. Even scholastically we are able to
make a showing with our many-talented mem-
bers who manage to study now and then.
With the stalwart efforts of Sheldon Williams
and the gracious assistance of Nancy Stephens,
the sophomores are ever trudging forward. Cal
Moely is the most cautious keeper of the Treasury
and Liz Blum records the many and great activi-
ties of the class. Doris Karner and Phil Linsell are
the duly elected representatives of the noble
class of '57 in the ring of North Central College.

THE FRESHMAN CLASS
The class of '58 descended on the campus of
NCC in September some 220 strong, and if by
June four years hence our numbers should be
reduced by time and the faculty, our enthusiasm
surely will not be.
We showed this budding love for NCC by
dutifully submitting to all the rigors of Woe
Week, which include-d Cas an upperclassman re-
marked, while casually crunching our poor pea-
nutsl one of the toughest peanut rolls in many a
year. The male counterpart to the distaff nose-
bruising was the torchlight parade and the
tug-o-war, which the sophs won.
School events quickly led to Homecoming, with
the freshmen class contributing not only hard
work on the floats, but also one of their mem-
bers, Barb Bergeman, to the Homecoming court
as a princess. The fellows contributed their
closely-guarded pride and ioy: a collection of
273 railroad ties, assorted signs, and a crowning
structure that altogether made up a record-
Early in the year many of the freshmen were
given the honor of participating in an aquatic
show at the college pond, and aside from that
several freshmen contributed their service to the
football team CBornemeier, Kaatz, Mueller, Proty,
and Reichertj, and the swimming team CBerg-
land, Kelly, Luedtke, Mizanin, Stevens and Rankj.
Organizing the class into an effective group
was the duty of our newly-elected class officers:
Jim Erdman, President, Dave Schubert, Vice-
president, Carol Esterly, Secretary, and Barb
Bergeman, Treasurer. Women's rep. was Audrey
Sundstrom, while the men were represented by
Our class colors of black and red formed the
color scheme of our shield, which bears an eagle
crest. The shield was presented and accepted by
the Student Kingdom in a planned chapel serv-
ice, and the class of '58 thus officially started on
the four sure-to-be-enjoyable years ahead as
members of the NCC student body.

When one considers the myriad of activities on
campus, one does not wonder that student control
organizations demand the time and effort of many
In considering student government, we think
immediately of the Student Council. Jim Kalas, stu-
dent body president, wielded the gavel at its
bi-monthly meetings. To this organization of repre-
sentatives from the various classes and organiza-
tions fell the tasks of appointing co-chairmen for
all-school events, approving constitutions of all
clubs and considering all student body problems
which are brought before it. The council had a say
in policy-making for the spending of the money
from student fees.
The actual regulation of this money, however,
fell on the shoulders of another organization, the
Student Finance Board. Professor Shoemaker was
the chairman of this board and Jack Hooton was
The school Social Commission headed by Marge
Senn, chairman, Joy Madden, vice-chairman,
Nancy Stevens, secretary, and Marian Albert, treas-
urer was responsible for providing a well-balanced
social program. Such events as the Freshman Recep-
tion, the Christmas and Mothers' Day Teas and the
Carnival were planned by them. They also took
charge of the social calendar to avoid conflicts in
the social schedule.
Representatives from each class, a commuter
representative, a Student Council representative,
a faculty advisor and the manager of the Student
Union made up the Student Union Board of Control.
This group approved spending of the Union Room
budget and discussed problems related to its opera-
Problems particularly related to the women on
campus were discussed by the Women's Advisory
Board headed by Karren Wacker, chairman, and
Dorothy Wittig, secretary.
A firm grip onthe purse strings gave the Speech
Activities Board control over all proiects of Theater
Guild, Radio Club, and Debate. Officers were Bill
Wolf, president: Ed Cavert, vice-president, and Lyn-
don Viel, secretary-treasurer.
Dr. Eastman served as chairman and Arline
Coffman as secretary of the Publications Board. The
college publications THE CHRONICLE, THE SPEC-
TRUM, and THE CARDINAL were represented on this
Control of athletic activities fell to the lot of
the W.A.A., Board of Control and the Athletic Board
Officers for the W.A.A. Board were Marlene
Hayes, president, Lorraine Weibel, vice-president,
Karren Wacker, secretary, and Luan Miller, treas-
urer. A girl in charge of each sport served on the
board. The Athletic Board of Control was headed
by Professor Bruhn. 49

North Central's societies of distinction are
topped by the Honors Society. To qualify for mem-
bership in this select group one must maintain a
grade average of 2.65 or above if a Junior, or of
2.5 or above if a Senior. Only four Seniors-Sylvia
Ebinger, Edwin Eigenbrodt, Franklyn Hayes and
Richard Woodward-qualified for membership for
two consecutive years.
Besides being top students the members of
"Who's Who in American Colleges" must exhibit
distinctive qualities in leadership, citizenship, per-
sonality and character. The eleven students elected
to represent North Central in this organization this
year were Sylvia Ebinger, Edwin Eigenbrodt, Helen
Farnham, Franklyn Hayes, John Kalas, Dorothea
Kofoed, Jane Koten, Kenwood Lewis, Lyle Little-
woocl, Neil Nielsen, and Richard Norenberg.
North Central's honorary societies are a little-
known part of our campus, but they are important
as they do much to increase intellectual interests
and efforts and help to keep our educational stand-
Alpha Psi Omega is the honorary dramatic
society. One must participate in campus theatre
productions and maintain a 1.5 grade index to
qualify for membership. Hope Clark, Louis Erd-
mann, Anne Heininger, James Keen, Audrey Man-
ion, Donald McLaughlin, Been Reed, Mary Roemer,
and Lyndon Viel comprised this group.
Pi Gamma Mu is the social science fraternity. A
B average and twenty hours in history, economics,
political science, and sociology, plus a deep interest
in this area of study are the qualification for this
letter society. Members were Helen Farnham, Joel
Frank, Franklyn Hayes, James Klein, Lyndon Saw-
vell, Richard Woodward, and Dale Wordelman.
The honorary speech fraternity is Pi Kappa
Delta. One must participate in intercollegiate de-
bate, discussion, and speaking to be able to join
this group. Gene Ahlborn, Stan Dock, Lee Harvey,
James Thomas, Dorothy Wittig, Elaine Wolf, and
Wilmert Wolf were members of this fraternity.
The English fraternity is Sigma Tau Delta. To-
gether with Writers' Club this group met to read
and discuss manuscripts written by their own mem-
bers who were Lee Dalrymple, Sylvia Ebinger, Jane
Koten, Barbara Rife, and Wilma Zillmer.
Tri Beta is the fraternity to which all top botany,
zoology and biology students belong. All members
must have a B average and be interested in this
area of intellectual pursuit.

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB
There are twelve departmental clubs on cam-
pus that sponsor activities for extra-curricular en-
In the field of romance languages French Club
and Spanish Club enable the student to cultivate
an international spirit of good will.
History Club and International Relations Club
keep posted on national and international affairs.
It is through their efforts that many representatives
have come on campus to give the students a more
democratic outlook on political life and make them
For those students interested in business, there
is Commerce Club. This group was responsible for
a co-operative study and work program whereby
students alternated a semester of work in industry
with a semester of college work.
Covering the home front is the Home Economics
Club. This club not only offers campus opportuni-
ties to its girls, but also gives them a chance to
participate in nationally affiliated organizations.
All three groups of the Speech Activities Asso-
ciation were very active this past year. Radio Club
presented a show called "Campus Corner" over
station WMRO in Aurora, as well as a closed circuit
broadcast to Napervillians.
The Debate team had over one hundred debates
and was very successful in all meets. Four plays
were presented by Theater Guild during the school
year. They included "Harvey," "My Three Angels,"
and "Sabrina Fair." During Religious Emphasis
Week, the Religious Life Council presented "The
Robe." Many were surprised to see unknown talent
discovered and become thespians for North Central.
Future scientists had many opportunities to hear
speakers and see films related to their specialized
fields. This was made possible through the efforts
of the Chemistry Club and Biology Club.
Students interested in the teaching profession
had Education Club for extra-curricular activity.
Programs and trips were planned with idea in
mind of making better teachers of N. C. grads.
Thus one can see that college is not all work,
but some play. These clubs have an educational
aim but try to offer enioyment and relaxation to
the hard-working student. 55

Under the direction of Dr. George Luntz, the
Concert Choir presented programs for the student
body. This group also went on tour in the spring to
promote North Central and to give other people
an opportunity to hear them.
The Chapel Choir showed tremendous improve-
ment this year. Through the efforts of Mr. Emmett
Steele, the group increased in size and sang at the
daily worship services.
Festival Chorus was comprised of members of
Chapel and Concert Choirs. They presented a pro-
gram at Christmas-time and another at the Fine
Arts Festival. Dr. Luntz was the director of this
The Marching Band was an extra attraction at
every football game and gave added color and
pep to the games. The members of the band
worked hard to learn the intricate drills presented
at half-time. Brooks Heck was the drum major, Don-
na Bassett and Marilyn Weinert were the maior-
The Symphony Orchestra was a community
affair that Mr. Steele directed. Members of sur-
rounding communities ioined this organization and
presented concerts throughout the year. Member-
ship in the orchestra was not limited to persons con-
nected with North Central, but was open to anyone
showing a genuine interest in music.
The Harmonettes, under the leadership of Miss
Marian Haines, was composed of eight girls who
were students in the music school. They sang secu-
lar and sacred songs at various school functions
and enioyed themselves in spite of practicing.
There are two organizations open only to music
maiors at North Central. They are Sigma Rho Gam-
ma and MENC CMusic Educators' National Confer-
encel. Both of these clubs are members of nation-
ally affiliated societies.
Sigma Rho Gamma was under the leadership
of president Nancy Wolf, vice-president, Lorrine
Helm, secretary, Sally Snider, and treasurer, Char-
lotte Barber. This organization sponsored two trips
to concerts in Chicago and planned many musical
Audrey Marion, president, Virginia Kolze, vice-
president, and Lorrine Helm, secretary-treasurer,
guided MENC through another successful year.
Their activities were similar to those of Sigma Rho
Gamma but they centered around the teaching of
music. The social event in the school of music, the
banquet, was planned by this group and held in
the early spring. 59

"Why go Y?" "Fun, Food and Fellowship." Post-
ers on North Central's campus remind us of this
religious organization. Let's look beyond these
posters to see how these organizations function.
Two of the organizations, the YMCA and the
YWCA, are quite prominent and very active on
campus. The 1955 officers of the Y's were: presi-
dents, Jane Koten and Ken Lewis, veeps, Helen
Farnham and John Winters, secretaries, Kathy
Gates and Dave Schubert, and treasurers, Luan
Miller and Bill Wolf. A large part of the work of
the Y cabinets pertains to service. Vespers, Big-
Little Sis and Brother banquets, chapel services, and
various parties for the student body are iust a few
of the services offered. Some of the ways the Y's
try to meet needs of the campus were by providing
leadership assistance at the local Y, promoting

Sally Snider, secretary Lorraine Weibel, treasurer
Joel Frank, and a cabinet helped with Sunday
School and Sunday evening fellowship. Denomina-
tional fellowship groups include the Canterbury
Club which was headed by Dan Madigan and MYF
which had at its head a council of seven college
students. They were Karen Hubert, Joan Schade-
waldt, Elaine Wolf, Lyle Littlewood, Alice Ginther,
Sheldon Williams and Keith Clark.
Student Volunteers concerns itself with inform-
ing students of the latest developments in the mis-
sion fields. Margaret Curtis was the president of
this organization, Mary Alice Humm was the sec-
retary, and Dale Wordelman was the treasurer.

Unveiling the first leads to proofing the final
copy is a long way in newspaper business. In its
76th year of publication, the CHRONICLE found
this fact to be very true as it successfully gathered
and published NC's weekly events and happenings.
Every week the Friday chapel crowd naturally
guided itself to the basement of Old Main to pick
up the final product-the result of hours of writing,
gathering ads, headlining and proofing by the
entire staff. However, with a sigh of relief that
another week's trials were over, the staff immedi-
ately geared into action for the next deadline.
Continuing the line of infiltration by women
editors, Dorothea Kofoed supervised and co-ordi-
nated all editorial activities. She also assumed the
responsibilities of makeup at the Naperville Sun,
which prints the paper each week. Besides keeping
accurate "debit and credit" columns, Fred Rod-
riguez, publisher, directed his staff in preparing
both local and national advertising. Ably assisting
in reworking the copy and writing last minute
stories, Nancy Heyer, associate editor, also did an
admirable iob of proofing the paper.
Ed Perkins, sports editor, not only added mo-
ments of hilarity while in the Chronicle office, but
also directed his sports writers in producing one of
the most excellent iobs of coverage in this field.
Ed's flair for sports writing found release in "Press-
box," a column devoted to observations in the
world of sports.
"Campus Eye" recorded the humorous activities
within NC's "portals of learning"-principally the
faux pas of both students and professors. Written

Not to be overlooked are those who worked, so
to speak, in the minor league. Pat Grace did an
excellent iob of gleaning the sources of Aurora
advertising possibilities. Ardath Orians capably
"ground out" h.eadlines. Shirley Enge, Carol'Wan-
ner, and Caroline Alger obtained numb fingers in
offering their typing skills. Liz Blum and Barb
Bergeman trudged to the Sun each Thursday and
Friday to lend of their proof reading skills.
Photography was handled by Bill Corder, who
employed the Polaroid Land camera for immediate
picture coverage. The CHRONICLE also made use of
the picture facilities offered by Rev. Siemsen's
office, for which Chuck Meslow took some out-
Barb Schroeder, circulation manager, directed
her crew of Joyce Hooton, Marilyn Mussatto and
Joanne Naulin, in folding, counting and addressing
issues for advertisers and subscribers.
According to last year's innovation, the new
editor took over the CHRONICLE duties of the April
I5th issue. This policy enables the experienced
crew to offer its advice and encouragement to the
"new management" while it undergoes its growing
pains. Such policy, under the advisorship of Dr.
Richard Eastman, enables the CHRONICLE to con-
tinue recording NC's facts and features in a compe-
tent manner and style.

The year T955 found the SPECTRUM staff rush-
ing around as usual to meet those deadlines which
always seemed to come about two weeks too soon.
Doing most of the scurrying were Jan Wolberg
and Wil Zillmer, the co-editors. Even though months
have passed the results of those long, sleepless
nights still show in the black circles under their eyes
and their dragging footsteps.
Barbara Rife, as literary editor, helped meet
these deadlines along with her staff of Mary
Roemer, Joan Kanikula, Marge Senn, Pam Huth,
Joan Davidson, Bill Wolf, Ann Heininger, Luan
Miller, Karen Wacker and Barb Sherman. Lyle Little-
wood did an excellent iob as sports editor, he was
assisted by Wes Stieg.
Photography for the book was ably handled by
Chuck Meslow who completely wore out his supply
of flash bulbs. Also helping Chuck with the de-
mands of the SPECTRUM were Jim Learmouth and
the Baker Studios of Chicago.
Dave Shumaker was the business manager this
year. With two women as his partners, Dave had
a hard time keeping track of his money. However,
on the advertising end, Dave and his staff of Carole
Blanset, Caroline Alger, Shirley Enge and Dave
Farley did an excellent iob of "bringing home the
Last, but not least was our "miscellaneous
staff." This staff was entirely responsible for get-
ting the underclassmen pictures taken, group pic-
tures taken and some of the copy proof read. With-
out them the SPECTRUM would never have gone to
Amid this hub-bub and confusion, however,
the SPECTRUM did go to press. Perhaps it was late,
but it got there, thanks to the post office and its
special delivery mail.
After the book was finished, the staff gave a
sigh of relief and very graciously relinquished their
responsibilities to the new editor and her crew.

The Varsity Club is one of the more exclusive
organizations on campus. Every athlete who wins
a letter is given a cordial invitation to ioin the
group. Once a member, he can enioy the many
advantages of the club. He may use the club's com-
fortable lounge, TV set, ping-pong table, or kitchen
at any time.
It is indeed unfortunate that so many persons
pass up the opportunity to become a part of this
active organization. The annual all-school semi-
formal is eagerly awaited by the entire student
body and enioyed by every attendant. The annual
Parents Day observation is the club's way of hon-
oring the parents of the present varsity team's
members.,The club also throws open its doors and
offers fellowship to the members of the visiting
teams so as to raise the level of sportsmanship and
co-operation between the various colleges of the
midwest. The club works with Mr. Belding and his
staff in every way possible to make North Central's
athletic department a well-knit and smooth func-
tioning organization. The club plans and observes
open house so that the campus may get a glimpse
of what the club is actually like. The club works in
co-operation with the athletic department and pub-
lic relations department to influence prospective
students, especially athletes, to attend our school.
The club sponsors social events such as swim socials
and carnivals for the entire college to enjoy. The
Varsity Club annually awards the Bill Shatzer Me-
morial Trophy to the most all-around senior athlete
as a reward for excellence in athletics, scholarship,
sportsmanship and general character. The club also
awards varsity blankets to all graduating members
who have won four letters in one sport or three
letters each in two sports. The Varsity Club's volun-
tary assistance in officiating at and helping with
the Midwest Invitational Track Meet makes it pos-
sible to continue the largest meet of its kind in the
midwest area year after year.
In the different ways the Varsity Club seeks to
elevate and maintain the level, standards and
cause of athletics on the campus. Through member-
ship in the Varsity Club, the athlete is of further
service to North Central College. Mr. Belding, Lyle
Littlewood, Russ Haidle, Jack Steckel and Bob Norris
directed the activities of the club this year.

Faced with a maior rebuilding iob, Coach Bill
Olson turned out a team that was full of surprises.
A small turnout of light, inexperienced men re-
sponded to his call. What they lacked in size, they
more than made up in spirit and hustle. Their desire
to win carried them to the best season record since
1951. When you realize that a total of iust seven
points, only one touchdown, could have changed a
dismal looking record of 2-6 into a 5-3 record for
the season, you know that the Cardinals fielded a
better team than the record indicates. The fact that
only Captain Don Zanotelli will graduate from the
starting line-up that ended the season points to-
ward a for better team next year.
The Redbirds lost the season opener to the Red
Devils of Eureka. Probably the one point margin
afforded by the try-for-extra-point kick hitting the
crossbar and rolling over with five minutes remain-
ing was the most heartbreaking play of the game.
The two victories of the season came at the
hands of Concordia and Elmhurst. The victory over
Elmhurst was the first Homecoming success since
T950 as well as the first time a Cardinal team has
held a team scoreless in the last six seasons.
Defeats at the hands of Lake Forest and Carroll
set the stage for the surprise of the season. The
Redbirds out-played, out-ran, and, in fact out-did
Wheaton in every department except scoring. A
safety scored on the sixth play of the game loomed
larger and larger as each team had a touchdown
called back. The Cards missed on another touch-
down drive and on an attempted field goal and so
their valiant effort to regain the Little Brass Bell
was in vain.
The season ended with a heartbreaking loss to
Augustana and a run-away defeat by Millikin.
Captain Zanotelli and Dewey Bornemeier were
honored by being named to the first and second
all-conference teams respectively.

The Will Warden era came to an end with his
graduation in January. At the end of his collegiate
career "Big Will" was averaging 34.7 points per
game, tops in the nation among small colleges. His
33.5 average topped all others in the College Con-
ference of Illinois. On William Warden Night, Jan-
uary 22, 1955, friends and teammates presented
him with a token of their interest and appreciation.

Ed DuPlessis, Dick Wehrli, and Shelly Williams
carried a maior portion of the scoring load for the
season. Roger Lofgren, Ralph Larson, and Rollie

Bill Olson can look forward to many bright days
in the future.

Coach Don ZanoteIIi's Bombers limped through
the first semester with an unimpressive 2-6 record.
However, this log did not tell the true story. Only
30 points could have reversed it to a 6-2 rating.
Spirit and drive characterized the play of the "B"
Some of the men to see action for the "B"
squad were: Dick Atkins, Lynn Brinkman, Barry
Crawley, Dave Dietzel, Dick Haas, Bob Harter,
Brooks Heck, Tom Lincicome, and Dick Thompson.
From these men will be formed the future varsity
team of North Central.
The Bomber squad is the transitional phase of
basketball between high school and college varsity
competition. Consequently, as the individual player
molds himself into NCC style of play and proves
himself he is promoted to the varsity squad. Need-
less to say, it is hard to keep a winning combina-
tion throughout the season. Besides giving athletes
college experience, the Bombers serve as practice
material to the varsity team. It easily follows that
the "B" squad is more important than the average

Balanced hitting power and lack of depth on
the squad caused the 1954 Cardinal baseball team
to have a fairly dismal season with a 4-ll-l rec-
ord. This gave the Card's a sixth place rating in the
conference with a 3-9 record for conference play.
The Redbirds warmed up against Chicago Uni-
versity with a tie game and then came through
with a walloping 'l5-3 victory over the same oppo-
nent. However, after the first two games the Card's
found the opposition very difficult to bring under
control. The Olsonmeri did finish the schedule with
brilliant victories over two conference foes, rival
Wheaton and Augustana.
Ed DuPlessis led the team with a .338 average,
followed by Capt. Bill Gossell with a mark of .333.
These were the only two men on the squad to hit
over .300 for the season. Shel Williams did very
commendable work on the mound for the Card-
inals. The fine playing of Tom Stachnik, Bob Hahn,
Ray Albrecht and Dean Stoffer added greatly to the
Red and White's cause. Since graduation did not
take a very heavy toll on the squad, the '55 team
has visions of a very promising year.

"Welcome to W.A.A. at North Central!" Ex-
pressions such as this were frequently heard at the
fall picnic, a get-acquainted gathering for old and
new members of this organization. This picnic
touched off what was to be one of W.A.A.'s finest
years. Such social activities and sports' participa-
-tion are combined to make W.A.A. a leader among
the various associations on this campus.
Besides the picnic,.other events sponsored by
W.A.A. this year were the moonlight hike, soccer
banquet, G.A.A. invitational, college play day,
basketball banquet, breakfast hike, and the fare-
well picnic. ln addition, many girls from N.C.C.
attended play days at other colleges.
All of the women's intra-mural sports are di-
rected by W.A.A. Besides the five major team
sports: soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming,
and baseball, opportunity is also given to partici-
pate in sports requiring individual skill, such as
archery, tennis, pingpong, and badminton. Tourna-
ments are held in each of these sports, as well as
in bowling. Girls may also receive credit for hiking,
bicycling, roller skating, horseback riding, winter
sports, and golf.
Awards are presented to the winners of the
various sports at the banquets. Letters and pins are
also awarded for participation in the requisite num-
ber of team and individual sports.
The purpose of W.A.A. is not to make all girls
athletes, but to prove to every coed that sports are
fun, and to interest them in co-recreational activi-
ties. This year the co-ed archery and volleyball
tournaments sponsored by the club were very suc-
cessful. ln fact this year T23 "guys and gals" par-
ticipated in coed volleyball.
The club's officers, Marlene Hayes, Lorraine
Weibel, Karren Wacker, and Luan Miller-president,
vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, respective-
ly-worked together with Miss Tanner, the adviser,
to help promote the many and varied activities
FIGHT! TEAM! FIGHT!
L. to R.: Albores, Wanner, Dudley, Holubetz, Wacker, Kukuclr, littlewood
"Go, Cardinals!" shouts an enthusiastic student
body, led by cheerleading captain, Karren Wacker
and her pep boosters, Barb Kukuck, Carol Wanner,
JoAnne Dudley, Karl Holubetz, Lyle Littlewood, and
Archie Albores. The occasion may be a sunny after-
noon in late autumn as the North Central Cardinals
take to the turf or a cold winter evening when a
crowd gathers in Merner Field House. But whatever
the occasion, a smaller team -the cheerleaders - are
on hand to boost the morale of the team and to spur
them on to victory.
The energetic seven puts in hours of practice per-
fecting new cheers, old cheers and arranging pep ral-
lies. However, cheerleading is not all work, since it
gives this group a chance to let off excess energy. It
is through their efforts that the Cards have been as-
sured of the support and spirit given them by the
North Central Student Body.

HOMECCMING HORIZCNS 1954
Homecoming Horizons T954 was a combination
of new ideas and old traditions successfully coupled
to make alumni and students enjoy the coming
"home" more than ever. The Homecoming chairmen
who worked to achieve this were Helen Farnham
and Bill Wolf.
The Friday night festivities began with "Stair-
way to the Stars." Mimi Flickinger was crowned
Queen in the company of her court, Barb Bergeman,
Sabra Mitchell, JoAnne Dudley and Barb Carlson.
Queen Mimi led the procession to Fort Hill Campus
to light the freshman woodpile.

The Cards won their first Homecoming game
since T951 and the frosh were freed of their bean-

COLLEGE DAY 1954
A welcome vacation for busy students was Col-
lege Day, 1954, but actually few of us slept late
that morning, for much was in the offing as North
Central-ites prepared to entertain enthusiastic vis-
itors and alumni. "Wish You Were Here" was the
dominant theme, in hope that many young people
would enioy their "inner look" at N. C.
At Pfeiffer Hall Jim Kalas accepted his gavel,
the Home Ec girls presented their style show, and
everyone was happy to see the T954 SPECTRUM
dedicated to Bill Fredrickson.
In the afternoon, the girls acted out "Alice in
Wonderland" at Merner Field House before the

"Do you know what they call the man who doesn't
believe in birth control?"
A pretty N.C. co-ed, president of the school's
Science Club, asked the biology professor to address
the group. The prof. rose: "I have worked closely with
your president for a number of years," he said, "and
during that time we have been intimate . . ." The
group giggled and the professor tried valiantly to
cover his slip: "And when I say intimate, I mean, of
course, in a biological way."
The ladies of the harem were seated in a circle
upon a gorgeous Persian rug casting dice. Around the
circle went the cubes in the hands of the excited
"It's Zorina tonight!" they screamed in unison.
With a deep sigh Zorina arose and with dragging
steps passed through the velvet portieres.
"I'd hate to be that poor kid," remarked Little
Egypt. "That's the third time she's had to wash them
dishes this week."

A clergyman and a truck driver found themselves in an auto-
mobile smashup. The truck driver told the padre what he thought
about him in profane terms. When he paused for breath it was

indulge in your kind of language, but this much I will tell you:
I hope when you get home tonight, your mother will run out from

A mousey little man was frightened silly of his boss. One day
he told a fellow worker that he was sick. His friend told him to

and there was his boss, kissing his wife. So he ran all the way
back to the office. "A fine friend you are!" he said to his friend,
"I nearly got caught!"
ONE IS ENOUGH
After the rural wedding, the bride and groom climbed into his
wagon and set out for their farm home. About a mile down the
road, the horse stumbled. "That's one," shouted the groom. They

the groom. As they neared the farm, the horse stumbled again.
"That's three," shouted the groom, and, seizing a gun from behind
the seat he put a bullet through the horse's brain. The bride sat
aghastp then, in no uncertain terms, told her new husband what she
thought of his action. He sat quietly until she subsided, then pointed
at her and, shouted, "That's one!" The couple lived happily for
A Doctor examined a pretty new patient carefully, then beamed,
