Remembering . . .
North Central Colleges, situated at Naperville, Illinois, a suburban city twenty-eight
miles west of Chicago, is a Christian liberal arts college, which yearly educates approx-
imately seven hundred students. This cold portrait is North Central seen in the external
and objective viewpoint of an outsider. To us students, NC presents an entirely different
picture. To us, it is a mixture of people, places and events that shape our lives with ex-
periences ofinnumerable variety. What will we remember about NC as twenty year alum-
ni, ten year alumni, or for that matter, what will we remember four years from now?
ln looking back, perhaps our first vision of NC will be the warm reception received
from our "Big Sis" or "Big Brother", that awesome upperclassman who helped us through
the ordeal of becoming a NC'er. And how could we ever forget Woe Week, when we, as
lowly frosh, humbly took part in the peanut roll or the torch light parade. Oh, we suffered
through those ordeals, but afterwards a new sense of pride assured us that we were ac-
cepted as a part ofthe college! The thrill of our first college homecoming, with its numer-
ous events, deeply impressed us. We'll remember the lovely Coronation with its anxious
moments awaiting the presentation of our new Homecoming Queen, and the feeling of
-A Q -'
- ,I V V
. , .W .,..t. ,.... 9 Q , , K.
nw ...F f '
, A , , .
awe at that mammoth bonfire will never be forgotten. The novelty of the parade, the excite-
ment ofthe football game, the tables of tasty food at the Smorgasbord, and finally the en-
tertaining Homecoming production, will long stay alive in our memories. The various
parties, sponsored by classes and organizations, which always meant headaches and work
for their chairmen, will come to our minds.
Looking back, we will remember the anxious awaiting ofthe football season and cross
country in the fall, the excitement of the swim meets and basketball games in the winter
and the interest of tennis, outdoor track and baseball games in the spring. And we won,t
forget the teas-especially the traditional Christmas tea and the wonderful concert by the
festival chorus, which follows it. Then-those semester exams! Could we forget them?
Hardly! The various springtime activities, such as College Day, with the May Queen and
King Rex, and also the Senior Banquet and Prom, will remain as fond memories of each
Letis consider our return for Homecoming just four years hence. Except for a few
changes, the outward look of the campus will be about the same as when we were here.
Maybe the red bud tree that the Seniors planted will have grown a bitg but Old Main will
be there just as it has since l89O when the south wing was added. The changes will be evi-
Sy ' a. 1 f , '
wife 1 e fm,
' lhzitlfm 4
dent when we consider the student body of 1960. It will include a completely new set of
students and a completely new set of leaders and followers. Our past activities on campus
will probably be oflittle interest to these North Centralitesg but to be sure we'll reminisce
about the "good old days" back at college. We will no doubt take out the yearbook and
think about our old friends and wonder what the Hgangn has done since we saw them last
We will wonder if Al has finished his study in medicine and has hung out his shingle, if
Keith, has realized his great ambition to attain a doctorate in Chemistry, and if Joy, who
studied diligently as a Commerce major has found success in the business world. We will
think ofDean and Arlene, who were intent on becoming the "teachers of tomorrowv-and
so person after person after person will run through our mind in retrospect of our college
To each NC'er a different memory will surround the many vibrant phases of North
Central as presented here, some with great elation and some with a few tears. But for each
she holds a valuable prize, maybe as yet not completely revealed. Always, she stands as a
milestone in the formulation of each student's life. This in North Central!
At right: Remember when

Professor Edward H. Himmel
In this year of 1956, we have chosen to honor one who gives a word
of encouragement to despairing students, guides those who seek the
pathway to truth, has patience never ending, and has a smile and a hello
for everyone. The Senior Class takes pleasure in dedicating the forty-
sixth volume ofthe Spectrum to Professor Edward H. Himmel in appre-
ciation of his being both a teacher and a friend.

These then are the ones who inspire us, who guide us, who
lead us to greater heights. To them We owe much more than
these few words of appreciation. To them we are indebted for
their efforts to impart their knowledgeg for their willingness
to counsel and adviseg for their being sympathetic and under-
standing friends. Therefore, we, the students of North Central,
wish to take this opportunity to say to each member of the
Jack Maier and his group of workmen, a part
of whom are shown here, have done a great deal
of work this past year and also last summer, to
modernize the campus buildings. Examples of their
endeavors may be seen in the remodeled Alumni
Hall, Where the Biology department is located, and
Goldspohn, Where the Chemistry, Math, and Physics
departments are being revamped.
The janitors do a fine job of maintaining the
school buildings and keeping them clean.

:Xct l: .Ns the curtain opens. the class of '56 appears hesitantly upon the stage of lNorth
tientrals campus. The setting is one of ivv covered huildings. foreboding looking
facultv. and avvc inspiring seniors. The actors. wearing green beanies. are rather
unsure of themselves as vet. Chief ad-lilmlver. ,lerrv Schroeder. smooths over the rough
lnterinission: A long awaited vacation.
Act ll: The actors re-enter. using again and again-and with great glee-the cue
"lJouhle-ltotttnn. Froslif' Bill Wlolf has the leading role in this act.
lnterinission: A summer spent refilling the colliers.
niet III: 'The time is now fall 1951, The actors gather on the stage.with a hit of smug-
ness. for thev have hecome upperclassmen. As the plot unfolds. everyone is working
toward the junior-Senior Banquet and Prom. the most dramatic moment of this act.
Lew :Xllhee has done an excellent job of directing his fellow players.
Intermission: A regathering of efforts for the final act.
Act lt: The actors are now moving about with assurance, but at the same time with
tlouht as tu what the reviews of tomorrow will say about their performance. The
actors appear at every seventh entrance wearing a strange looking plaid heret. As
the loose ends of the plot are being tied up, the actors display their wisdom and dignity
in such scenes as Senior Skip Day and Senior Chapel. The climax is the long awaited
day of graduation. The various pieces of the plot have finally neatly fallen together.
Dean Stolter. Jerry Schroeder, Betsy Belding, Dick Winters, Marlene Hayes, and Lew
Allhee deserve special curtain calls for their leadership in this final act.
The actors leave the stage reluctantlyg yet as they leave, they go knowing they will
carry with them always the memories of this, the show of shows.

' The Class of 757
Returning to the campus of North Central College this fall. we did not feel as lost
as we had the previous year. Our numbers had dwindled but we were still a large happy
group. This year was a busy year for the Class of '57, as we had to earn the right to
be the umightyi' seniors of next year.
Under the able leadership of Dennis Wentz, with the assistance of Alberta Sawyer,
Donna Strutz, Bob Berkey. Mary ,lo Feik. and Phil Linsell, we started out the year
by having the concession stand at the football games, and the coat check stand during
the basketball season.
'The musical "Finian's Rainbow" took up a good part of our class time since we
were all very anxious for it to be a whopping success. Then, too. after several basket-
ball games we sponsored variety shows which were calculated to jiggle the funny bone.
The Junior-Senior Prom took up the main part of our energies as it was the main
event of the year and the reason for all our money-making projects. ln the spring of
our sophomore year we started looking for the site. Then in the fall the committee
decided upon Tam O'Shanter Country Club. From then on it was just a matter of
completing the details and getting the money.
Now. we are at the gateway of our goal. As a class, we have thoroughly enjoyed
our steady and tedious climb up the ladder as well as the friends we made. We are
expectantly awaiting the coming fall when we can return to North Central College as
the senior class, for then we will realize even more fully that all of our struggles have
been well Worth the effort.

Class of '
As our illustrious class again entered the ivy covered halls this fall, we felt right
at home and knew that we had one special duty to carry out ilnmediately-make sure
that the Freshmen felt at home. We no longer had to wear the green beanies, or bow
to the upper classinen. This wear we could issue the command, HButton, froshln Now
we were ambitious sophomores. ready to take the second big step in our four years
Being hearty souls. we had survived the lirst step, the Freshman year with its
many hdignifiedw activities-Woe Week, the Peanut Boll, tug-of-war, and the frosh-
soph scrap. We are still the proud builders of the "biggest yetl' Homecoming bonfire.
Last year on College Day, for the first time in the school's history, the inspired
masculine set of this class thought of a new twist to an old custom. lnstead of garbing
themselves in the traditional P.l.'s to lead King Rex through town, our he-men donned
themselves in brightly colored shorts.
As sophomores. the frosh-soph scrap was a push-over. However, in the tug-of-war,
our men carried the rope back through town-displaying their great strength.
The Class of '58 was ably represented in the Homecoming Queen's Court by Barb
Bergenian and Judy Speck.
Also from our class came stalwart sophomore men to represent NC on the ath-
Class parties, picinics, and meetings are some of the ways we have united under
our red and black shield bearing the mighty eagle.
Capable leaders were elected to guide the affairs of our class-the man on top
being Howard Mueller, assisted by Bud Kaatz, Doris Fritsch and Bill Gates are secre-
tary and treasurer, respectively, while Jan Faulhaber and Jack Erdman are faithful
representatives of the Student Council.
We are looking ahead to two more years of college life with great eagerness-
doing our best to earn more blue ribbons scholastically, athletically, spiritually and

Class of 9
The class of '59 entered North Central green, confused, and as scared as any other freshman
class. However, we had one thing in our favor because umisery loves company" and the enrollment
of our class was one of the largest in the history of NC,
Almost immediately, each of us obtained our 'Gmark of distinctioni'-a green beanie, These we
wore faithfully. Those who were not faithful received personal invitations to the pond or pool
Among the events of that nrst memorable week was the Torchlight Parade. Inspired by the
girls' cheering, our frosh men kept the torches straight and high despite paddling by the upper-
classmen. One and all enjoyed the generosity of the local theatre after the festivities.
Thru all the enrolling and getting acquainted with the campus, our big sis' and bro's advised
and consoled us. Certainly, none of us could have gotten all the forms filled in without their help.
The Big-Little Bro and Big-Little Sis banquets will not be soon forgotten.
Woe Week-laefore it took place the words struck terror into our hearts. However, it wasn't as
bad as we had anticipated. The costumes were hilarious, the Davy Crocketts looked straight from
the frontier and the l890 bathing beauties were most glamorous. A great deal of our "leisure', time
during Woe Week was spent working for the upperclassmen, or doing double-buttons. For the girls
the climax of the week was the peanut roll. What a sight it was, and how we rolled those peanuts!
Our sore knees and noses served to remind us of the occasion for several days.
Each year there are two traditional battles between the frosh and the sophs. The first is the
tug-of-war over the uroaringu DuPage River. This year our frosh men dragged the sophs right
across the river and up the other side-we rode back to town in triumph! At the Frosh-Soph
Scrap on Homecoming, we didn't fare so well. The sophs were winning when the ball sprung a
leak. Of course, there is no telling what the outcome would have been.
Brian Bender was elected as president of the Class of ,59 with ,lim Esterly, vice-president,
Mary Strahan, secretaryg and John Strahan, treasurer. Phyllis Bartel was women's rep and Dick
Stevenson men's rep.

Men's Rep., Karl Holubetz.
ln its seventeenth year as a "go-betweenw for students and administration, the Stu-
dent Council has had an active term. Since it represents every student at North Central,
the organization is a strong and busy one. Besides keeping the administration and student
body in touch with each other, the council supervises all student activities, approves con-
stitutions of all clubs, appoints chairman for homecoming, college day, and freshman
orientation, and considers all student body problems which are brought before it.
Student Body President Bill Strutz holds the gavel at meetings held in the council's
new chambers in the Library. Joanne Dudley and Karl Holubetz represent the women and
men attending NC, while Professor Schap is the faculty advisor.
The council elects members to the Social commission. to the Religious Life Council,
to the Finance Board, and to the Student Union Board of Control.
Some of the special activities of the Student Council this term were a retreat in Jan-
uary to help its members get acquainted and a Christmas meeting at the home of Professor

derstand how it operates. These people comprise the
Board of Control whose chairman is Dick Winters.
The members consist of a Student Council representa-
tive, a representative from each class, and a faculty
advisor, Dr. Schaefer.

One of North Centra1's newest organizations is the Ad
Agency, which combines the work of the former adver-
tising staffs of the various campus publications-the
Spectrum, the Chronicle, the Homecoming and College
This Ad Agency has proved to be an efficient organiza-
tion on campus. Jerry Giesler, the manager, has been a
real "go-getterv in the advertising field. The other mem-
bers and he have assured the publication of our student
ventures by selling the necessary volume of advertising.
Charlotte Barber, secretary, demonstrated her ability
as a typist, while Bob McCallister, David Edmondson,
and Russell Franz did an excellent job selling advertising
space to local business firms.
The purpose of the Finance Board is to act as an over-
seer for the student activity fee. Some of the areas into
which this money is disbursed are the Spectrum, Chron-
icle, Heldhouse sports, and the Artist Series. It is their
duty to set an appropriation of the organization's budget
and make sure that the set allotment is not exceeded.
Advisors to the board are Professor Shoemaker, Mr.
Norton, Dean Ciere, and the Business Office.

The College Chronicle
Written for the SPECTRUM by Nancy Heyer
September 1955 marked the entrance of the COLLEGE
CHRONICLE into its two spacious and luminous offices in
the basement ofthe College and Seminary Library. Pale
green walls, newly acquired desks and chairs, added work-
ing space, and the familiar sight of the oversized 5000 pound
Hoor safe completed the picture which greeted the staff on
its return to the campus for the year's endeavors.
Here, in this long-awaited location, Nancy Heyer, editor
directed all activities necessary to meet the ever-present
Wednesday evening copy deadline. Working side by side
with the manager ofthe newly formed Advertising Agency,
Jerry Giesler, the two organization heads were able to pre-
sent frequent six-page issues, thus giving more detailed
representation to a larger percentage of the student body.
Arline Coffman, associate editor, assumed copy reading,
rewriting, and proofreading tasks. Ardath Orians, headlinist,
had the exacting task of filling limited space with meaning-
ful letter combinations. Marg Ousterhout served both as
copy editor and special assistant to the editor. She was
further responsible for co-ordinating all press releases from
the Music School. Dick Caldwell doubled up as last minute
sports writer and rewrite man. Lois Ringelberg, assisted by
Faith Dicke, had charge of typing the reams of copy which
must be prepared to meet printers' specifications.
Columnist Jerry Schroeder presented "Words of Notefl
his own views on various phases of the musical world. "Com-
muters Corner,', as written by Ken Obrecht and Chet Sher-
man, told the problems and interests of this large segment
of the student body. Bill Wolf, reported the activities "In-
side Student Councilf' "Gallimaufry,', by Audrey Sund-
strom and Curt Johnson, was a mixture of brief articles
concerning campus organizations and personnel.
Jack Steckel covered all NC football games and later the
swimming and track contests. Ron Curtis delighted the
reading audience with his humorous and varied "Sport-
raitsf' Shel Trapp covered the basketball games. Bill Link
and ,lim Albrecht's "Pressbox'7 spanned local, CCI, and
national sports, as well as their opinions on various campus
Financial worries were the concern of Comptroller
Barbara Schroeder, while Joanne Naulin headed the circula-
tion staff. She was ably assisted in folding, counting and
addressing the issues by Gail Schroeder and ,Ian I-Iazenfield.
Continuing the policy of April administrative changes
begun in l954-, the new staff was able to receive valuable
training and experience which had formerly been unobtain-
able. Under the advisorship of Dr. Richard Eastman, THE
COLLEGE CHRONICLE had thus been able to carry for-
ward an unbroken record of continuous coverage of all
phases of campus life.

"To be or not to bew-dunked in the pond, that is. As editor of the Spectrum, that was one ofthe
questions in Mary Roemer's mind as she hurried here and there, going to staff meetings, setting up pages,
and prodding everyone in order to meet those deadlines, which came along too often and too soon.
Ably assisting her was Alberta Sawyer, associate editor. With these two at the head of the staff, copy was
turned in and typed, pictures developed and mounted, and multiples were sent off to the printer.
Bev Magenheimer, as literary editor, took charge ofthe class and organization write-ups. Those helping
her were .lean Rada, Sandy Nickla, Pat Bryan, Evelyn Pucci, Margie Young, Mavis Erdmann, Phyllis Fraser,
llsa Zillmer, Janet Pepiot, and Mary Washburn.
Sports editor Wes Stieg was his own staffin writing up the athletics of North Central. Nancy Auten was
in charge of senior pictures and the listing of this worthy group.
Photograpy for the book was well taken care of by Dave Hochstettler. The talent and ideas of Donna
Deabler, art director, are reflected in the division pages of our 1956 Spectrum.
Dave Farley competently handled his job as comptroller, trying to keep track of his money and get the
bills paid besides. The advertising was taken care of by the newly formed Ad Agency.
Professor Shoemaker, our faculty advisor, deserves recognition and an expression of our sincere appre-
ciation for his interest and the advice he offered.
Last, but not least, were our typists, who presented in legible form the thoughts that had been developed
by the writers. The typists were Mavis Erdmann, Phyllis Fraser, Mary Ann Pulsing, and llsa Zillmer.
Such was the Spectrum staff. But few people outside of the staff realize how much time and energy are
expended to produce a year book. The Spectrum is typical as a North Central organization. It depends on
student initiative and the interest and cooperation of everyone who is a part of it. If one person fails to per-
form his task, the whole venture suffers. Fortunately, this yearls staff was also typical of North Central. Its
members willingly accepted responsibility, and in spite of the hubbub and confusion in the office just before
a deadline, the Spectrum did go to the press.

The Y Cabinets
The combined efforts of the Y.W.C.A. and the Y.M.C.A. this year have brought about
a close relationship between the spiritual life of our students here at North Central and
that of their everyday common way of life. Through these two organizations many worth-
while things were accomplished this year.
One of their biggest awards should go for the intimate friendships attained through
the fellowship ofthe annual Big-Sis-Bro Banquet. Another award winner would be the
success of the career conference sponsored by the Y's. Some of the other worthwhile pro-
jects were the weekly Vespers, Frosh orientation, social gatherings, the Upper Room,
Christian fellowship hour, and just the renewing of purpose given to student life.
The officers behind these organizations were presidents Luan Miller and Phil Linsell,
vice-presidents Barb Carlson and Tony Farina, secretaries Marilyn Seagly and Don Crull,
and treasurers Donna Strutz and Jerry Dowling.

There are several groups on campus uniting in a main thought, to help the student
body of North Central enjoy the Christian way of life. One such group is Seager Associa-
tion, whose purpose is to stress the importance of consecration to the Christian ministry
and provide guidance for those who plan to enter the ministry as their life work. The Stu-
dent Volunteers, whose purpose is to promote missionary emphasis among the student,
is another active campus organization. For their monthly meeting either home or foreign
missionaries are their speakers. Phyllis Mielke was president of the group this year, as-
sisted by vice-president Jim Iwig and secretary-treasurer Marcia Schafer, with Dr. and
Mrs. Farnham serving as advisors to the group.
Campus Youth Fellowship, whose membership is open to all, was lead by their presi-
dent Dale Wordelman, along with Ruth Unger, Mary Ann Ubele, and Clyde Cross, to pro-
mote spiritual growth and Christian fellowship on campus. Wesley Fellowship, open to
students with Methodist afliliation as well as all others who wish to join, was led by chair-
man, Shel Williams. Mrs. Farnham was advisor for the group. Episcopal students of high-
er learning are invited to the Canterbury Club, under the leadership of president Gordon
MacWhorter, to further themselves in fellowship and adult religious activities. Others
assisting are Dan Madign and Miss Watson.

The purposes of departmental clubs at North Central are to point out career possibilities for those who
major in a field, to create a greater interest in the department, and to provide a more varied background for
students. The year's activities included panel discussions, outside speakers, money-making projects and
Chemistry Club presented another Cranberry Tea in December under the leadership of President Keith
Clark, who was assisted by the other ofhcers, Dan Madigan, Mary Roemer, and Dick Harris.

October 22, l955 brought NC,s Theatre Guild back to the
footlights in a presentation of Joseph Kessesrings play "Arse-
nic and Old Lace".
The December performance, "Candida', by the popular
playwrite George Bernard Shaw, was followed in April by a
child ren's play. ln May, with the Fine Arts Festival, the Guild
turned classical with the lively Shakesperian drama "The Tam-
ing of the Shreww.
This year, the group established a touring company which
traveled to E.U.B. churches during spring vacation to present
a religious play.

Two new additions have been made to North Central,s
many extra-curricular organizations. The Commuters' Club
and Phi Sigma Iota now claim the free moments ofthose stu-
dents who commute to and from school and of those students
whose interests lie in the romance languages. N.C.'s extra-
curricular program is sure to be enriched by these new organi-
The Commuter's Club consisting ofthe students who com-
mute daily from their legal residence, has as its purpose to
better coordinate commuter activities with those ofthe remain-
ing student body, to promote a better understanding of the
problems of commuter students, and to maintain cooperation
between commuters and the faculty and the Student Council.
John Schroeder heads this organization, with JoAnn Lewis
as vice-president, Janice Hermann as secretary-treasurer, and
Dann Chamberlin as the representative to Student Council.
Various social events were held throughout the year, including
an all-school party. The commuters entered a team in the intra-
mural basketball tourney, and this year for the first time re-
ceived representation in the Student Council.

Honors Society and Whois Who hold the top places of distinction among North Centralls organizations.
lts members are outstanding in scholarship and character.
Ann Heininger is president and Lorraine Weibel is secretary of the Honors Society. New members are
added during the second semester, and juniors as well as seniors are selected, in order to keep the organiza-
tion active the year round. Maintaining a grade average of 2.65 or above, if a junior, and that of 2.5 or above,
if a senior, is essential. However, if at graduation time, a student graduates "With Honorw and has the other

The North Central School of Music offers to its over
two hundred participating students an extensive curricu-
lum of courses and vocal and instrumental organizations.
One of the purposes of the School of Music is to offer
experience through public performances.
With its membership open to all interested singers,
the hundred voice Festival Chorus studies the larger
major choral works by composers of all eras of music
history. The Chorus presented its ninth annual Christ-
mas Vesper Service in December and appeared in the
annual May Fine Arts Festival. The Festival Chorus has
Dr. Luntz as its director.
Singing the elaborate sacred literature of the choral
masters, the Concert Choir, directed by Dr. Luntz, with
a selected membership of thirty-five voices, again went
on its annual spring tour. ln addition to the two state
tour through Ohio and Michigan, the Choiris local ap-
pearances included the Naperville and area churches and
the Chicago Sunday Evening Club.
Limited to a membership of sixty-five selected voices,
the Chapel Choir appeared in Pfeiffer Hall Concerts with
the North Central College Community Symphony in the
Symphony's March Concert Series and with the North
Central College Concert Band in the Fine Arts Festival.
A special Christmas Concert with the Harmonettes was
presented in addition to their weekly College Chapel ap-
pearances throughout the year. The Choir is directed by
Mr. Emmett Steele.
In its second year under the baton of Emmitt Steele,

son. Drawing its seventy members from the college and
eleven neighboring communities, the Symphony per-
formed three series of concerts, three concerts in each
series. Supplementing the Pfeiffer Hall Concerts in
January, March, and May fthe Fine Arts Festivall, there
were numerous out-of-town concerts in Chicago and the
Chicago suburbs. Benefit concerts included those for

The North Central College Concert Band, under the
direction of Mr. Emmett Steele, in an attempt to ease
problems incurred in extensive touring, is limited to a
membership of lifty auditioned musicians. The Concert
Band presented several new innovations this year in its
highly diversified ,55-'56 concert season. Opening with
its initial home concert at Pfeiffer Hall in January, the
Band continued its busy schedule with chapel programs,
out-of-town concerts in nearby surburban communities,
a special College Day concert along with other special
activities, and a Fine Arts Festival. The high point of
the seasonis activities was the highly gratifying three
state tour through Michigan, Ohio, and lllinois with as
many as three concerts daily. As a publicity agent, for
the School of Music as well as for the College, the Con-
cert Band presented over sixteen public concerts during
the duration of this season.
The enlarged ,55 North Central College Marching
Band, led by Drum Majors, Brooks Heck and Roger
Hernandez, presented in its second year of existance, as
usual, another colorful season. Complete with intricate
formations, fancy maneuvers, and military drills. ln ad-
dition to the huge Homecoming festivities, the Marching
Band appeared in the Fire Prevention Parade in Aurora.
The Band's director, Mr. Emmett Steele, was assisted by
Mr. Ned Gardner of the School of Music.
This year, the newly organized all-male Cardinal Pep
Band performed at all home basketball games. The fif-
teen members promoted additional pep and spirit for
the basketball season. Student conducted, the Pep Band
played peppy marches and novelty numbers.
The Harmonetts, directed by Mrs. Marion Schap, is
a girls' vocal ensemble group singing classical and semi-
popular music. The group has as its chief purpose to
provide experience in vocal ensemble work. Their public
appearances this year included chapel programs and
various local appearances.

after is heard "Sock ,Em, Bust 'Em, That's our Customf' uniquely
performed by the three men on the squad, Karl Holubetz, Arch Al-
bores and Marve Brickert.
With Joanne Dudley as their captain, these morale boosters do
more than an adequate job to spur our athletic teams to victory.
These peppy seven never let North Central forget that spirit and en-
couragement on the sidelines are often decisive factors in the win-
ning of a game. Enthusiasm bubbles when North Central's Cheer-
leaders appear on the field and the stands are always able to show
their opponents some very fine spirit.
Under the direction of the athletic board, North Central's cheer-
ing squad took part in some of the annual memorable events of the
year, such as: Traditions Night, when the Frosh are introduced to
our cheersg the torchlight parade, and the bonfire, where spirit for
the Homecoming game was aroused.
Since some of them are seniors and are leaving us this year,
Let's wish them every bit of luck
and salute them with a cheer.

NC says "Thank youi' to these men for the high A
quality of sportsimanship and calibre of playing which t
were displayed in all the competitive sports.
L to R: D. Stoffer, L. Harvey, B. McCallister, M. Brickert, J. Steckel, R. Albrecht, R. Larson, R. Wehrli.
The North Central frogmen once again had a very success
ful season. setting many new records and obtaining numer-
ous trophies. Phil Dannley was captain of the team this past
season. leading them against three Big Ten schools, Illinois,
Wisconsin, and Northwestern. Also, meets with Loyola,
Hamlin. Beloit. and many other schools including Notre
Dame were very satisfactory.
The swimmers began this season against Northwestern
and were defeated 46-37. However, when one considers the
competition NC has in such a meet, this score has many
good indications. John lVIolitor set a new record in the 220
with a time of 2:20.
Next. the Cardinals competed in the Knox relays. They
brought home four of the eight trophies presented in the
relays by winning four of the eight events. which would have
given them a team victory in the meet, if such a score had
been kept. North Central also set many records that day,
several team records, some pool records. and also a few meet
The next team to be doused by the Cards was Illinois
Wesleyait by a score of 26-58. John Molitor again set a new
record, this time in the 4-40 to the time of 5:06.8. The next
meet in line was the AAU. the meet that was won several
days after it had taken place. A mistaken score awarded the
trophy to the wrong team, however, several days later, after
re-checking the records, NC had won 78-75 over Fenwick.
Here again many records were set. Molitor set a new record
in the 250 to the time of 2:l8.6, thus erasing the previous
time he had established himself in this event earlier in the
season. Jim Rank set a new record in the 100 yd. butterfly
to the time of 1:0l.9, and the 4-00 yd. medley relay team set
a record with a time of 4-2183. North Central used all avail-
able swimmers in this meet, and were allowed the use of the
"Dean's team" in order to insure the victory.
The University of Illinois entertained the swimmers next
and defeated them 66-27. John Molitor was the only NC
swimmer to capture a first place, which he did in two events,
the 220 and 440. Recovering from this defeat, the University
of Chicago was handed a good shellacking by the Cards by
the score of 59-27.
The remainder of the year contained many victories and
honors for the Cieremen, who swam against Wisconsin ex-
tension. Wright Junior College, Beloit, and Augustana. As
this copy goes to press. the season's outcome is not known,
but the prospects for an eighth consecutive conference title
is all but in the records.

Trophy winning Medley Relay.
Pictured below is this yearis indoor track team, but as copy goes to press, their season has just begun. Therefore,
the statistics of last yearis team is recorded.
The 1955 season saw some very notable records made, probably the most important ones were set by the eight lap
relay team composed of Bornemeier, Steckle, Johnson and Brickert. One new record occurred in the Midwest lnvita-
tional meetg and later, in a triangular meet with Beloit and Elmhurst, the same trackmen posted the fast time for a NC
team in the last ten years.
ln the first meet of the season NC completely outclassed Elmhurst to the tune of 61-43. However, Bradley took the
Cards in tow by a score of6l-43. For the next meet, Beloit Buc's topped the Cards and Elmhurst 5616-4-8-24-lb, respec-
tively. The Red Birds lost to Loyola in their next meet by a score of 78-26. ln the Midwest Track Meet NC placed fourth
in a field of fourteen teams. Dick Branz won the open mile and the eight lap relay team set a new meet record, to give
NC most of its points. ln the meet with Milwaukee Teachers the Cards were slowed down 5716-3910, but in the final
meet NC trampled Monmouth 6lV2-3916.
Consistent point winners were Lyle Littlewood, Bob Schwab, Ron Reichert, Jack Steckle, Dick Branz, Dick Otto,
Ron Johnson, Marv Brickert and Dewey Bornemeier.
ROW 1: Coach Belding, Curits, Lambrecht, Bachman, Stieg, Brinkman, Searight, Shippert, Stegner. ROW 2: Gates, Branz, A. Smith,

L to R: Williams, Larson, Harmon, Shymkewich, Wehrli, Folleth, Thee, Morgan, Swafford, Sirotzki.
The Cardinals played good ball all season against some of the top competition in small midwest schools, such as
Millikan, Wheaton and Beloit. Playing with the best of them, the Red and White displayed plenty of spirit and drive
as they went through the season. "Butch', Wehrli and "Bones" Larson served as co-captains for the year and led the
team in their determined bid for victory in each game. This yearls team received the help of many freshmen, which may
be a contributing factor to the slow start the team has witnessed. The new additions to the squad had to become accus-
tomed to the style of play North Central uses. Ed Morgan has been a very valuable asset to the Cardinales cause since his
appearance in college competition. Fred Bennett, from our rival town of Wheaton, has also contributed by his fine play
and spirit. Two other freshmen, Tom Folleth and Bill Thee have also proved themselves helpful to the team. The return
of Dick Swafford to the lineup after being sidelined for a year has proved the spark needed to get the team back in the
winning column. Shel Williams, Dale Shymkewich, Rollie Cook, and Brooks Heck could always be counted on by
Coach Olson when the team was in trouble.
The Big Red started the season off with a win over Grinnell to the tune of 61-54. However, after this initial win,
the team was unable to gather enough together to overcome the next sixteen opponents. Then, just before the end of
the first semester, Dick Swafford returned to the team and with his coming, the team seemed to be on the up-grade
During the slump that the Cards experienced, the team was defeated by such outstanding teams as Millikan, Beloit,
Illinois Wesleyan, Wheaton, Coe College, and the University of Paris. However, even though the Cards did bow to these
teams they put up a good battle in each game to make the opponents realize they were not gaining an easy victory.
With the start of a new semester the team seemed to be transposed into a smooth moving and working unit. The
first encounter was against Carroll College. where the Cards came through 91-74. The following week, the men of the
hardwood traveled to Rock Island and downed Augustana 86-77. Augustana had defeated them earlier in the season by
seven points. With these fine showings the team holds promise of coming along in the season to a fine finish as the
SPECTRUM goes to press.
The seniors on the squad who will be seeing their last year of college competition are Rich Wehrli and Ralph Lar-
son, co-captains and Dick Atkins. So with the loss of only three men from the squad, the coming season's holds much
promise for Coach Olson.

Coach Bob Fletcher guided the Bombers through an unimpressive first
semester winning only two games and losing seven. However, as the semester
was coming to an end, the two victories were recorded giving an indication
that the right combination had been found, thus the Bombers hopes were
high for future victories. The team displayed much spirit and drive which
contributed much to the expectations of the team.
The Bomber squad serves as practice material for the varsity. Con-
sequently, they have to use a different style of play each week of practice,
corresponding to the style used by the varsity opponents. ln many cases be-
cause of this variety of style they must display, mixups occur during the games
played by the junior varsity. Also, as the season progresses, they lose their
better players to the varsity squad. If one of the varsity hoopsters is out be-
cause of injury or illness, the Bombers lose one of their key men for a game
or two and a new team combination must be sought by Coach Fletcher.
The Bomber squad is the transitional phase of basketball between high
school and college varsity competition. It acquaints the freshmen with the
North Central style of play and eases them into the more rugged types of play
used in varsity competition. Therefore, it is easy to see that the "BH squad
is more important than the average spectator realizes.
Some of the men to see a great deal of action for the junior varsity were,
Ron Bagley, ,lim Searight, Tom Heather, Ken Sirotzki, Dave Bachman, Don

Beginning and ending the season with a bang plus playing heads up ball during the season describes
the 1955 Cardinal football team. The Redbirds had to settle for sixth place in the conference, but the season
was not without its high points. One such example was the performance seen in N.C.'s defeat of Elmhurst
by a score of 64-0. Captain Ray Albrecht was elected all conference tackle, and Glenn Unger, Keith Clark
and Dwight Bornemeier were second team selections in the balloting.

The Cards opened the season with a brilliant 20-0 win over Eureka College. At no time
during the game did N.C. experience any trouble, Eureka being kept under complete
control. However, in the next two games with Augustana and Lake Forest, the gridmen
were unable to drive into the opponents end zone. N.C. out-played both teams almost in
every department but the scoring column.
Illinois Wesleyan and Carroll rolled over the Red and White Cards, defeating them
25-9 and 20-7, respectively. Nevertheless the fine play of Neil Boone, Murice Seargent and
Ron Reichert kept the Cards from worse defeats by these two opponents.
Encountering Wheaton and Millikin in the next two games, N.C. was held in tact by
scores of 12-6 and 13-0, respectively. The Redbirds had the same trouble in these two
games as they had earlier in the season, that being their inability to push into their opon-
entis end zone. They played excellent ball and in numerous encounters, far surpassed their
The final game of the season was no contest for the players, for they out-played, out-
ran, and out-did Elmhurst in every department. Once N.C.,s hands were on the ball, there
was no doubt ofthe game's outcome.
In the conference N.C. had a 1-5 record, and for the entire season, the over-all record
was 2 wins and 6 defeats. However, there were many inexperienced men on this yearis
squad and the experience gained this year should prove an asset for the '56 season. Ron
Smith, Dick Lambrecht and Ron Berlin will be counted on heavily next fall.-
There were five seniors, R. Albrecht, Bansemer, Clark, Atkins and D. Bornemeier,
who will be missed by Coach Olson next year. These men saw a lot of action and carried
many of the heavy duties in the football games.

Baseball -- 1955
The impressive pitching of Dale Shymkewich, Shel Williams, and Don Prouty and the hitting of Ed Duplissis and
Bob ,lance gave the 1955 Cardinals a third place in the conference and a 10-7 record for the season.
Coach Olson's team began the season with five consecutive wins before they were stopped in the second frame of a
double header with Millikin by a score of 3-1. Aurora was next to hand the Redbirds a defeat by the score of 9-3, but the
Cards bounced back with two wins, over Concordia and Lake Forest. These victories had barely been realized when
Chicago and Wheaton stiffled the diamondmen by the scores of 4--2 and 5-0, respectively. Elmhurst, the next opponent,
felt the full power of NCC when they received two overwhelming defeats. Of the four remaining games, the Cardls were
able to hand Augustana a defeat in the second half ofa double header Q10-41, losing the other three games to Lake
Forest, Wheaton, and Augustana.
Ed Duplessis led the team in the hitting department with a .368 average followed by Dale Shymkewich with and
Bob Janca with 308. The fine fielding of R01 Cook, Ray Albrecht and Dick Haas added a great deal to the Red and White
cause. Graduation, taking only two men from the '55 lineup, should have little effect on the '56 team, as there is every
sign that '56 will be a promising year.

The 1955 NC tennis team finished the season with
four wins and nine defeats and a sixth place in the con-
ference. Outstanding individual place, but considerable
lack of depth was the chief characteristic of the team
coached by Bob Dexheimer.
Captain Russ Heidle played number one position for
the squad. Tom Holbrook played number two man and
Dick Schloreb third in line. Paul Sutton, Clyde Cross
and George Gruchowina filled out the squad in that or-

The 1955 thinclads were guided to a very successful
season by Coach Belding. Beginning the season at the
Wabash Relays, two first places were gathered by the
team. The trackmen followed this with a very decisive
victory over Concordia 119-12. The next meet was a
trianglar with Carroll College nosing ahead by just one
and one-half points to take the meet. However, the
Cards came through in the next three meets soundly
trouncing Elmhurst, Wesleyan, Lake Forest and Augus-
At the conference track meet, NC was able to place
third out of the eight schools participating and at the
Carroll Relays, out of a field of twelve schools, NC gath-
ered third place again.
Dick Otto ended his college career with a very impres-
sive showing, leading the team in total points by a wide
margin. Dick Branz and Lyle Littlewood could always
be counted on in the distance events, while Jack Steckel
and Marv Brichert consistently placed in the sprinting
events. With the graduation of only three Seniors the
1956 trackmen will be looking for another winning sea-

T.V. set, ping pong tables, and kitchen at all times. Two of the most outstanding
features of the club are its initiations, which are celebrated and observed by most
1 b members on campus twice each year, and the beautiful formal held in October,
u attended by many students.
Some of the accomplishments and projects of the year include: Parent's Day,
concession stands at high school and college basketball games, officiating at the
Midwest lnvitational Track Meet, and election of the track queen and her court.
ln addition, the club is promoting a "Most all around Senior Athlete" trophy in
memory of Bill Shatzer. The club sponsors social events, such as social swims and

Water Show - 1955
"Whispering Windsw was the theme of the spring
water show. Music was chosen from the four seasons,
starting with the Summer scene entitled "Heat Wavev
and "Moonlight Serenadeng then Autumn which con-
sisted of "Autumn Leaves" and "September Songw.
Winter came in on a "Winter Waltzw in "Winter Won-
derlandw and then Spring with "How High the Moons,
and "Rain" This colorful water panorama of seasons
ended with the Hnale, "Fm Always Chasing Rainbows".
In carrying the theme in decorations, Winter had a
huge snowmang an umbrella was surrounded by Spring
flowersg there was a trellis for Summerg and colorful
leaves illustrated Autumn. In the center, there was a
many colored rainbow.
The show concerned a dialogue between a young
couple who were reminiscing about the past year of col-
lege. Swimming to the music depicting the four seasons
were several groupsg trios, duets and solos with a few
larger groups. Some swimmers from Downers Grove
were guest performers.
The water show was under the direction of Mrs.
Thorntong Marlene Hayes and Ann Swisher assisted.
