Friends and faces we once knew will grow strangely dim, while memories will become more meaningful. We, the members of the Cupola staff, hope that this book will recre- ate the setting for those memories.

But for you this year will always be associated with your graduation from North Park. To onlookers this may seem inconsequential, but to you it will con- stantly symbolize educational progress.

Your school has been happy over your days on this campus. It believes that its educational program has been helpful to you, and it will continue to follow you with warm interest and intercession. Its greeting can be expressed in the apostolic salutation: " Take care of yourselves; don ' t throw away all the labour that has been spent on you, but persevere till God gives you your reward.

Fight for the honor of our dear school And show the rest, boys. That North Park will rule! STUDENT NURSES Opportunities for nurses ' train- ing are ottered at two Chicago hos- pitals which are both affiliated with North Park College, and are located on the North side of Chicago within a short distance of the school. The first, Swedish Covenant Hospital is owned and controlled by the Evan- gelical Mission Covenant Church of America. Since its organization, the hospital and the school of nursing have sought to maintain the Chris- tian principles and policies upon which it was founded. Second, the Ravenswood Hospital School of Nursing, though not directly affili- ated with the Mission Covenant Church is served by North Park fac- ulty and makes use of its science facilities. Many students, upon the com- pletion of the freshman year on the North Park campus, enter into the nurses ' training curriculum offered at one of these two outstanding hos- pitals. The increasing need for reg- istered nurses offers many career op- portunities for interested girls. Student nurses are always wel- come at the college-sponsored social activities Among these are parties on the campus, football and basket- ball games during the fall and win- ter months. Spring finds college baseball in the spotlight at nearby River Park. Both schools set up their own student organizations which function to promote cooperation and individ- ual responsibility, much the same as the typical college campus.

I rnsl The basic purpose of the Interna- tional Relations Club of North Park is that each individual may understand and respect each other ' s national and cultural differences. The meetings were conducted on a personal level during which time the representatives of a particular country gave an aspect of its culture or an introduction to its way of life. These brought the cultures to the group in a direct way, and the oppor- tunity to question the representatives was given in order to satisfy the inter- est and curiosity of the group. Thus were learned the basic similarities and harmonies beneath superficial differ- ences. In February, the club, under the sponsorship of Merlin Gustafson, pre- sented a program at the chapel serv- ices of both the college and the acad- emy. The club also sponsored a timely movie on the work of the United Na- tions in poverty stricken areas. Officers for the club this year were: Janice Norton, Dave Mullins, Yvonne Thompson, Jack Cole, Bob Niznik, Ken- neth Gebhardt, Wayne Funk, T. Ernst, and Bill Thompson. MIDDLE EAST Among the newer campus clubs is the Middle East Club, organized last school year. The states represented are Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York, with 25 students composing the club. Those who held office this year were: Verna Hultman, Don Powers, and Peggy Berquist. The hayrack ride, held in the spring high-lighted the club activities for the year. Though only in its second year, the Middle East Club has taken its place among the traditional clubs on our campus. At times the club has appeared to be a good ole ' town meet- ing, tor more than half the student members come from Jamestown, New York. Bergqmst, C. Larson, Y. WLitaey, T. Jonnson. 3: D. Powers. R.

" Well, that ' s Emily Post ' s way of saying that a secretary in an office should tend strictly to business, be as impersonal as her typewriter, and as full of information as her filing cabinet. This club is composed of girls in- terested in a secretarial career and in becoming more familiar with that field. The activities of the club are varied, being both informative and entertain- ing. Socials also held an important part in the activities of our future sec- retaries ... for it is important that they also know how to act when the boss takes them out to dinner. An outstanding event in the first semester was the Christmas party Smorgasbord held in Caroline Hall lounge. The climax of the year was the annual spring reunion banquet, at Villa Sweden, where former members were guests of the club. At one of the club meetings former members of the club came back and told of their experiences in the business world. Officers this year were: ]ean Hug- gare, Barbara Eldh, Elvera Englund, and Nancy Anderson. The faculty sponsor of this club is Miss Debora Carlson. YANKEE Standing high among the tradi- tional campus clubs here at North Park is the Yankee Club, founded by 35 Easterners, with residence in one of the New England States as the only requirement for membership. In recent years, the club has extended its boun- daries to include students from the New Jersey and New York City areas. These well known individuals on North Park ' s campus who are recognized by " the missing Y " unite to form the Yankee Club. Evidence of loyalty to one another has long been a trade- mark of the " down Easterners " who will be seen frequently talking about the things back home. Many of the members have known each other pre- viously from the summer conference which is held at Cromwell, Connecti- cut; so that they are often not total strangers to one another upon arriving here. This year the Yankees started out their activities with a picnic at La Baugh Woods in October. A bowling party and the annual " Yankee " bean supper were held in the spring. Row I I I rickson, S.

Sa The Y.W.C.A. is a popular and act- ive club at North Park. It is open to all girls in the college, providing an oppor- tunity to make new friends and to share in the activities of a large and worthy group. The purpose of the club is thus stated: " to build a fellowship of women devoted to the task of realizing in our common life those ideals of personal and social living to which we are com- mitted by our faith as Christians. " All members were urged to sign up for one of the seven committees of the " Y. " The chairmen of these in- clude: Delores Schuh, Nancy Lambert, Carol Le Vahn, Betty Seaburgh, Mari- lyn Liljegren, Marjorie Ramgren, and Margaret Wickett. These committees divide activities of the organization so that many girls have a chance to take part in the planning. " Y " service projects this year in- cluded selling chrysanthemums at homecoming, putting out a college di- rectory, and planning a chapel serv- ice for the World Student Service Fund. On Halloween the " Y " sponsored a hayrack party which was very suc- cessful. Following a tradition started several years ago, the " Y " planned a turn-about week held in the spring. At one of the meetings Miss Bran- del told of her experiences in Europe. After hearing about her experiences we all got the " bug " to travel. The officers of the organization this year were: Ann Elise Erickson, Marianne Aimer, Lorraine Hokanson, and Doris Matson. The sponsor this year has been Mrs. L. Sandgren. Y. w. (;. A.

" as it is usually known, is made up ot students who have a definite interest in missionary work at home and abroad. Many ot the members are already looking forward and prepar- ing tor the time when they will be serv- ing their Lord in some distant land or at home. Former " M. V. " members are at present making Christ known in Atrica, South America, China, Alaska, Ecuador, and in our own land. " M. V. " meetings are held the first Monday evening of each month in the Seminary Building. Missionary speak- ers, films depicting missionary work and life, and a guestion hour make up the programs. A panel discussion was held among students who had done missionary work this past summer. In January, the message was given by the Rev. Gordon Christianson of Belgian Congo. The highlight of the year was the banguet held in February in Sohl- berg Commons, with the Rev. Helga Hamilton. Covenant missionary to Alaska as the speaker. Missionary Volunteers is one of the oldest campus organizations and boasts one of the largest, active mem- berships. Most North Parkers will re- member the regular notices which donned the many blackboards of our classrooms and served not only as a trade mark, but a timely reminder to all. MINNESOTA From the land of Paul Bunyan come the members ot the Minnesota Club, this being the only prerequisite tor membership in an organization which was founded at North Park in 1951. Though large in number, the Minnesota Club takes little part in campus activities, its primary function being of a social nature. The " Swedes from Minnesota " can well be proud of their contributions to the North Park student body during the past two years. They have con- tributed members to the national honor society, Phi Theta Kappa. Glenn Hart- quist was voted most likely to succeed in the college notable poll, and Richard Lysaker. An additional honor was re- corded with the election of Carol Le Vahn to preside as Homecoming Queen of 1952. A former Minnesota resident, Paul Swanson, has upheld the high traditions of the gridiron dur- ing his two years of first string varsity service. Row I; A I reedholm. V Franklin, M. Olson, J. Olsen.

" What an extraordi- nary group ol young people this is, " he might have thought, " for, though they have Bibles in their hands, yet they have smiles on their faces. " Both the Bibles and smiles are easily ex- plained, for the group consisted of vi- brant Christian young people — the North Park Christian Fellowship. The Christian Fellowship is an or- ganization affiliated with Inter-varsity. As strengthened by fellowship together in Christ, they meet to study the Bible intently, searching for a real under- standing of the scriptures. By piecing together the many and often opposing convictions of their members, they came closer to the truth, and an under- standing of Christian Fellowship. Evert Ecklund served as president this year. Assisting him were: Paul Sparrman, Marjorie Ramgren, Helen Anderson, Myrna Sandell, and Lydia Deyneka. In November the Christian Fellow- ship sponsored a CTA party. One of the discussions this year was on " Chris- tian College or Secular College? " Having no membership rules, the Fellowship welcomes everyone into its club. " Where two or three are gath- ered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them. " SEMINARY FOfflJM Seminary Forum is an organization of seminary and pre-seminary men preparing for the ministry and to stimu- late interest in theologican and church problems. No one can deny that the Semi- nary Forum, one of the oldest organi- zations at North Park continued to serve many spiritually important purposes. First, it gives all the young men who will soon be working for the Lord in the Covenant ministry an opportunity to hear the experiences of older ministers, who have been out in the field lor a number of years. These discussions revealed many problems mentioned. Then, too, in Forum the Seminarians can talk over their individual doubts, hopes, and ambitions, and through conversation, they gain strength. Perhaps the most important pur- pose of the Seminary Forum is that in it the future pastors made life-long friends among those who are like minded in the faith, who have also vowed to devote their lives to serve God. In future years these friendships will mean a great deal to these men as they share the heartaches, joys, and deep satisfaction of theirs, the noblest of all professions. Warren Nelson led the group this year. Those helping him were William Liljegren, David Johnson, and Willis Adell. Row I: M. Wickstrom. L. Anderson, I lohnson I Nordstrom. L Flint, A Borns, R.

He then auto- matically becomes a member of that exclusive organization, the Lettermen ' s Club. Membership in this club stands for countless hours of grueling practice on the gridiron, the basketball court, the baseball diamond, or the running track. It stands for the glory of winning as well as the disappointment in losing, but most ot all it stands for the promo- tion of good sportsmanship. The Lettermen ' s reception during Homecoming highlighted the club ' s ac- tivities for the year. The purpose of this reception was to resume friend- ships of past years. Many alumni ath- letes and former coaches were present to help make the reception a success. Money obtained from Sports Night helped to purchase letter jackets for members who had received two letters m the same sport. Besides handing out lettermen ' s jackets, it also contributes one hun- dred dollars a year toward the Athletic Scholarship Fund. This fund is used to help some student, who participates in sports through college. The lettermen worked hard for the school and students throughout the year, and can look back with pride at their accomplishments. They supplied programs for all of the football games, and were constantly looking for ways m which to improve the club. HAWKEYE No one is as proud of Iowa as the Iowans. The Hawkeye state has been well represented on our campus every year and this year is no exception. The meetings of the Hawkeye club are very informal, as can be expected. The Iowans get together and talk of people, places, and experiences back home. Many of the students have known each other from Bible camps, and this is often an interesting topic for conver- sation. The highlight of the year was the Iowa Banquet held in the spring. Be- sides the students who attended, fac- ulty members and office workers from Iowa were also present. Someone once said, " " all Iowa has is tall girls and corn. " Both of these items were present at the banquet. A tremendous time was had by all who attended the big affair. The officers for this year were: Jerry Johnson, Duane Peterson, and Jeanne Peterson. Vivadelle Youngberg is the club sponsor for the Iowans. Ron. 1 Row 2 Row i Ro,r I M. Lambert. C. Johnson.

Dr. Person, head of the psychology de- partment, is its sponsor and advisor. The club is dedicated to foster an understanding among all, of why man behaves as he does. It strives con- stantly to help us understand ourselves, so that we may better understand oth- ers. It is believed that through this un- derstanding we may better be able to cope with the problems this world poses for us. To this end, a greater harmony among men is foreseen. Among the activities of the club are lectures, motion pictures, and discus- sions. A picture was shown on Child Psychology, which proved very inter- esting. One of the most unusual pro- grams presented at North Park was brought to us by the Psychology Club in the person of Morton H. Greene, hypnotist. His program featured a series of interesting and amusing ex- periments with volunteer subjects from the audience. A field trip to Dunning State Hospital was taken in January. Officers for the club this year have been: Willis Adell, ]oanne Ellison, Bar- bara Ericson, and Bert Hallman. LUTHEUAN STUDENTS One of the newer clubs on the North Park campus is the Lutheran Stu- dents ' Association. The L.S.A. met every other Monday in Caroline Hall Lounge. In this club are students who are members of, or attend a Lutheran church. Those leading the club are: Norman Ryding; John Swenson, Shirley Lindskoog, and Mary Cordell. Through the Lutheran Student As- sociation this year, the members have come to feel a closer relationship with Christ, our Lord. The importance of walking hand in hand with Him, not only now, but throughout the weeks, months, and years to follow was im- pressed upon the group. D. Giese. M. Procek. T. Linoucn. S. Lindskoog. V.

STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council has taken its place at North Park as one ot the most important organizations on the cam- pus. This year there was an unusually well balanced representation of the student body. Members of the Student Council are elected from the various counselling groups, representing the Junior College, Music School, Semi- nary, and Bible Institute. All responsibilities of Homecoming were placed on the Student Council. This included all plans for the election of the queen, and the coronation cere- mony at the game. The council also made plans for the greatest event of the school year, the College Banquet held on May 22. Preparations for College Day were also made under council sponsorship. Rollerskating parties, assemblies throughout the year, and a calendar listing special events must also be in- cluded among the many activities un- der the direction of this group. A Christ- mas party was held in the gym and was enjoyed by all. The Viking room was completed this year for the student body. Officers for this year have been: John Nelson, Carol Johnson, Marilyn Liljegren, Lorraine Hokanson, and Gor- don Lundin. A special thank you for the hours of hard work and wonderful help goes to Mr. P. J. Larson, faculty ad- visor for the council. MELOPHONICS Row I: M. Lang. J. Campbell, P. Paige. J.

The Melophonics is the school music club. All students interested in music are invited to join. The group promotes interest in music by attending concerts in the city. Membership in the Melophonics Club does not mean all play and no work. Members are reguired to be ushers at the student and faculty con- certs held in Hanson Hall. They are responsible, at certain hours lor the new listening room in the music build- ing. The music school ' s homecoming decoration is erected and paid for by the Melophonics Club. Last, but not least, the Melophonics Club sponsors the student recitals which are held on the second Monday oi every month during the school year. One of the projects this year for the club was to present a program in a student as- sembly. A very enjoyable program was given which consisted of instru- mental, piano, and voice music. The officers elected for this year were: Duane Ainlay, Myrna Falk, and Jim Campbell. The club continues to extend a hearty invitation to all students who appreciate music and wish to become better acquainted with it. PEP CLUB Roii 1: D Powers, M. Al„ Iht i . C . Johnson. Roo 2: D.

M. lolm- The spark behind our pep rallies and our athletic activities is the Pep Club, the newest organization on our campus. The purpose of this club, as the name suggests, is to promote in- terest in our sports events, and to urge all North Parkers to get out and root for our teams. The spirit at our games has been wonderful this year, espe- cially during our basketball season when we had such a tremendous team. The Pep Club should be congratulated on their swell support of all the athletic events of the year. The Pep Club got oil to a line start this year by chartering busses to the football game with La Salle-Peru. The pep rallies this year, including the Homecoming pep rally, were under the direction of this club. The Pep Club spent a lot of time before the big Home- coming week-end making blue and gold " shakers " . They took a lot of time to make, but the club members had a lot of fun doing it. Next year the club should grow and make a real name for itself on our campus. The officers this year have been: Don Powers, Janice Norton, and George Magnuson. GEIJER In a class by itself, with a name almost unpronouncable by non-mem- bers, Geijer is one ot the best loved organizations ot North Park. Geijerfor- engen is highly esteemed and revered by every true North Parker. Its pur- pose has always been to promote that good old Swedish culture which most of us have inherited from our forefath- ers, and the efforts of the members this year have been highly successful. Geijer is not only for Swedish students, but for all who are interested in learn- ing about Swedish customs and tra- ditions. The tra ditional Smorgasbord was held before Christmas, and after a delicious meal, Alyce Larson was crowned Lucia Queen. Wearing long white robes and carrying candles, Alyce and her court serenaded us with " Santa Lucia " at the Christmas Party sponsored by the student council. Row I I Sandberg. ( I Benson, M. OIso...

Student meetings, Fellowship meetings, and gospel teams are just a lew of the many and varied duties of our Religious Council. In fact, this or- ganization is responsible for the entire religious life of the school. To coordi- nate and direct all the religious activi- ties is the main purpose of the council. Last fall, a Missionary Emphasis Week was sponsored by the council. In the fall the council also took charge of a prayer conference, and Rev. Gus- tafson, who spoke the entire week end from the book of Ephesians, challenged all of us to new heights in our Christian experience. A Missionary Week was held in March. It was decided to con- tinue the support of our missionaries, Ted and Carolyn Kelly with gifts and pledges from the student body and the missionary fund. The annual Julotta and special Holy Week services were outstanding events of the past year. Gospel teams travelled to many Chicago churches as well as out of town places, even as far away as Marion, Ohio. Much of the credit for the success of this fine organi- zation goes to John Nilson, president, and to Nancy Lindestrand, who was in charge of student meetings; also to their able sponsor, Chaplain Erickson. DEMENUD1 During each school year, the sec- ond Wednesday evening of the month is the time when the Demenudi Club meets. The name ot this club is com- posed oi the first two letters of dentistry, medicine, nursing, and dietetics. This year the club has had many outstand- ing meetings such as the lecture on Re- cent Trends in Endocrinology by Dr. Donn; the annual picnic held in the fall; a plastic surgery film; a discussion of vi- visection led by Dr. Sanders, a professor at the Chicago Teachers ' College; and a talk on Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning by one of the club advisors, Dr. Donald Wikholm. The most important social event of the year was the annual ban- guet held at the Tally Ho in Park Ridge during the latter part of March. At that time we were privileged to have as speaker, Dr. Wallace Thornbloom, a medical missionary home on furlough from Africa. In addition to these activi- ties, Demenudi sponsored a chest x-ray campaign in the fall in which over eight hundred students and faculty members participated. Under the able supervision of the sponsors, Miss Bernice Hinshaw and Dr. Donald Wikholm, and the direction of the officers, Glenn Hartguist, presi- dent; Jane Ericson, first vice-president; Dave Ellowson, second vice-president; Carol Le Vahn, secretary; and Marilyn M. Johnson, treasurer, the Demenudi Club has added another profitable year to its record. Row 1: Row 2: R,.„, J: Roiu I Row 5: Row 6: Row 7: C. Carlson. J. Erickson. M. Carlson. 1. P. Berquist. S.

Sharp The Tridentians this year have proven to be one of the most active clubs on our campus. Last fall they re- ceived a special award lor their deco- ration ol front campus tor Homecom- ing. The theme " Let ' s make it WON lor the record " was original and well planned. Also last tall, alter the regu- lar season was over, the Tridentians played the on-campus football fellows (and lost), but a good time was had by all. In March, they sponsored a " County Fair " which was an all school event held in the gym. A queen was elected and a wrestling match between Kid Gavilan and Chuck Davey, alias Thompson and Hunter also provided excitement for the evening. Again this year, the fellows raised money for a scholarship fund and de- cided to help support a Navajo Indian boy. This year for the first time we saw them wearing their own pins with the Tridentian emblem in gold and onyx. Bill Thompson succeeded Jack Cole, who left after the first semester, as president. He was assisted by Abe Sheheen, vice-president; Bill Hunter, secretary; Dan McCaughna. E. Gustav lohnson is the sponsor of this club. PHI THETA KAPPA The highest scholastic recognition that North Park can give to its students is election to Phi Theta Kappa, national honor scholarship society lor junior colleges. Its objective is to develop character and to cultivate fellowship among students. Election to Phi Theta Kappa is based on scholarship, tor the student must be in the upper 10 per cent of his class, and have both personality and leadership ability. A board of faculty members nominate students for elec- tion and also vote on the nominations. Mr. . Fredrick Burgh is the chairman of the board and advisor to the fraternity. In the spring a small group of freshmen are chosen to form the nu- cleus for the next year ' s group. Then in the fall, the regular members are elected from the sophomore class.

Under the direction of Donald Ohlsen, the choir brought a musical challenge and a spiritual ex- perience to our campus by singing twice a week for our chapel services, at homecoming, and for commence- ment. At Christmas, the choir com- bined with the Festival Chorus to pre- sent Handel ' s " Messiah " . The Seven Last Words " by DuBois was presented on Palm Sunday, also with combined choir and Festival Chorus. Before a wonderful tour of the east- ern states, several area concerts were presented. The choir sang at Bethesda Covenant Church in Rockford on April 12, and on April 19, they sang in Glen Ellyn. The eastern tour started April 28 with the first concert in Cleveland. The choir stopped in Ridgeway, James- town, New York City, East Orange, Bridgeport, Boston, Worcester, Albany, DONALD OHLSEN Director Rochester, Buffalo, and Youngstown. They returned May 8 and climaxed the year by their annual performance at Orchestra Hall. NORTH PARK GOSPEL TEAM B. Axels. D. John J. Dahlbcrg. C. Johnson. M. Olson. On June 10, 1952, a gospel team of students representing North Park left Chicago in the college station wagon for a ten week tour of some of our Cove- nant churches in the midwest. They travelled in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, and Illinois. The gospel team displayed their versatility of mu- sical talent by their combina- tions into a trumpet trio, mixed guartet, and male guartet. Don- ald Wikholm, Margaret Peter- son, and Chaplain Erickson al- ternated as faculty representa- tives who spoke in the interest of North Park. The gospel team was responsible for about 200 applications to North Park through their efforts. CUPOLA ' 53 Perhaps any member of the Cupola staff could well adopt a cur- rently popular song as his theme. " Z Get the Blues in Advance " sums up all the emotional feeling of a frustrated editor, copy reader or sports writer when faced with the realization of a deadline schedule. But strangely enough, the hours of hard work spent in forming the framework of a year- book are suddenly suppressed when the final deadline is finished and the Cupola " rolls off " the press. A feeling of pride and satisfaction replaces any previous temptation of resignation. The Cupola office appears so quiet and peaceful upon the student ' s return to the campus in September, the dust atop the spacious editor ' s desk, has hardly been stirred during the summer months. This peaceful picture is soon disturbed when once again the sticking keys of the typewriter are clicking out club write-ups, the phone is kept hum- ming with urgent calls for photograph- EDITORS NANCY LAMBERT, ED DWYER, 1)1 BBY BENGTS 89 CUPOLA STAFF ers; our adviser, E. Gustav Johnson, is consulted when we arrive at dead- ends; pencils are worn along the edge of a ruler as layouts are designed; deadline approaching . . . needless to say, we were busy. The final March deadline appears so tar away when viewed from Sep- tember, and many hours are spent by the staff members in carrying out their assignment, which, upon completion, will retain many happy memories oi the best days of our lives spent on our North Park campus. We ' re proud of the Cupola ' 53. It is our wish that you, the reader, will share our feeling. CUPOLA STAFF Editor-in-Chief Ed Dwyer Assistant Editors . . .

" and the mad rush for the bookstore when the students rea- lize " that the News is here " are evi- dence of the popularity of this of- ficial hi-weekly publication of the school. A member of the Illinois Collegiate Press Association, the North Park College News has won many state awards for journalistic excellence. The staff which handled the News this year was short on ex- perience, but full of ambition and ideas. Their goal was to put out a paper which would be both attrac- tive and interesting. As the year moved along, the needed experi- ence was gained through actual work in putting together a college newspaper. Heading the staff, editor Don Lindman received valuable help from Nancy Johnson, assistant edi- tor. When Nancy graduated in February, Myron Carlson stepped in to fill the gap. Business mana- ger Jerry fohnson was in charge of the fiancial side of publishing the paper. The News underwent several changes during the year. During the first semester, the front page assumed a " new look " every few issues as different styles of page JERRY H II INS »N. Business Manager DON I l l | , , ,„ NEWS make-up were tried. Given over completely to editorial copy, the second page saw the addition of a new column to the paper. The " Smorgasbord, " formerly the cam- pus chatter column, became a lit- erary column containing short, interesting, and often humorous observations about school and world activities. The chatter col- umn appeared on another page under the new heading " Campus Views. " 1952-53 NEWS STAFF Editor-in-Chief ....

This year ' s squad compiled a season ' s record which had both " ups " and " downs " . The high points of the season were a 12-7 licking dished out to the Wheaton " B " squad, one of the top teams on the Viking schedule, and a 12-0 victory over a high-flying Thornton team. The low moment was a 50-0 drubbing by the powerful La Salle- Peru team. Mother Nature was good to Coach " Yank " Swanson ' s boys and provided them with ideal football weather con- ditions. Excitement ran high as the season started with prospects for a fine showing in the blue and gold ' s opener against Navy Pier. The team played " heads up " ball in the first half and led 8-0 when the gun ended the first canto. The hard charging line had dropped a Pier back in his end zone for a touch back and a Lake to Fay pass HAROLD " YANK SWANSON Coach was for a touchdown. In the second half it was the Navy Pier depth that made the difference. Their 19 points in the second half made the final score 19-8. The following week, the Wheaton team faced an inspired North Park eleven at Winnemac Park. The teams battled to a scoreless draw in the first half. In the second half, a Wheaton fumble recovered by Adell set up a Lake to Goethe pass that scored. Adell stole the ball m the fourth quarter to again set up North Park ' s score which came on a reverse, Gotberg carrying, that caught Wheaton napping. Just before the end a Wheaton back broke away on a long run which made the score 12-7 as the Vikings won their first game of the sason. The next week, the team met the La Salle-Peru club. This " power house " was at its best that night as it handed « Hi ? :$ Row 1: E. Larson, G. Else. B.Matson.D. Hess. Row 2: J. Reeves, D. Nyquist, D. McCaughna, P. Svvanson, A. Bohenberger. Roiu 3: J. Rock, R. Fowler, B. Lake, E. Carlson. the North Parkers a 50-0 setback. The up and down Vikings were up the fol- lowing week as they shut out a Thorn- ton team that had won its last two games 56-0 and 32-0. This game was probably North Park ' s best as Hess ' pass interception and line work of Ny- quist, Swanson, and Matson sparked the team. Rock scored and another Lake to Goethe pass was good for six points to make the final score 12-0. On the following Saturday the Vik- ings made Wright ' s homecoming a happy one as Wright won 12-7. The score tells the wrong story, for even with key men out of the lineup the North Park eleven was clearly the su- perior team. Breaks played a big part in the game as the team couldn ' t score more than Rock ' s touchdown. The 1952 Homecoming game was played against Wilson, the conference champion. The Vikings held this powerhouse in the first quarter, but Wilson opened up in the second quar- ter with 26 points. Add 12 in the third and 6 in the fourth, and you have the trend of the game. After failing to score on a couple of drives deep into Wilson territory, Captain Nyquist inter- cepted a Wilson pass and ran 23 yards to score. Swanson converted to make the Vikings ' homecoming score a lop- sided 44-7. The season ended at ]oliet where a weak defense accounted for 27 points before another Lake-Goethe pass broke the ice for the Vikings. This play went for a total of 62 yards. Lake scored North Park ' s other touchdown as Joliet won 34-12. V IZ th IK A v ■■■■ ■■■■HHHHi Pass intercepted by Dave Hess. North 1 ' .irk 12, Wheal Row I Row 2 Row 3 L. Hill. R. Chuck, E.

The defensive platoon looked very good in many of the games with vicious tackling and blocking. The of- fensive sguad showed spurts of near brilliance at times. The club ' s guarter- back, Bruce Lake, consistently played " heads up " ball as he threw four " pay dirt " passes and scored another on a sneak. His field-generalship and good sportsmanship won him the honor of being elected the team ' s most valuable player. Next year ' s captain will be Bill Matson, lineman.

Hail to the champions of the Big Six Junior College Conference! Yes, Coach " Bibbs " Anderson came up with a real one for the ' 52 - ' 53 basketball cam- paign and presented North Park with their first undisputed basketball cham- pionship. Many things have and will be said abou t this year ' s " bucket " ball team, but it is agreed that this team is a team ' s team. The fellows were only after one thing — a victory. That was shown in the fact that at one time or another, every man on the starting five was high point man in at least one game. It was shown in the scoring — many times all of the starters would be grouped one point behind each other on the score sheet and usually all would garner over ten points in each game. It was shown again in the spirit, the spirit of never having a defeated attitude, even when behind. The Vik- ing team, in one game against Wright, was behind 15 points at the half and their first half of play was very ragged. During intermission, a transformation took place and a new Viking team took the floor, a team which beat Wright 73- 71 because of a driving spirit — the spirit that was predominant in all the games. Statistically speaking the team compiled a record of nine victories and one loss in conference play and sev- enteen victories against five defeats in all games played. The squad hung up two team records. The first, in number of points scored was broken three times. In 1950, 87 points were scored against Herzl. This year ' s team scored successively 88, 92, and 94 points. The other record is in average points per game. The old record of 67.2 (set in 1949) was broken as the Vikings slipped them through the cords at a 74 points per game clip. •lerson on I be rebound CONFERENCE PACEMAKERS Jerry Johnson hill Peterson Ed Dwyer Wig Person Butcli Lofgren (Capt.)

George Magnuson The Viking men got off to a fast start as they shot by the University of Illinois Medical School 61-43, but were pulled up short by a scrappy La Grange outfit who came from behind to tie the score at the end of regular time 64-64 and then outscored the Vikings 17-12 in overtime to win 81-76. The Blue and Gold started conference play with an easy 68-55 win over Wright in which all men saw action. Another easy con- ference win trounced Thornton 81-45. In two non-conference games, the North Park men split in beating Elgin 88-75 and dropping a low scoring, high fouling game to Navy Pier 54-44. The Vikings recovered to hand high-flying Morton a 64-50 licking as Person hit 16; Peterson, 15; Dwyer, 13; and Lofgren, 12 in a team victory. Bibbs ' boys kept their conference record unblemished as they defeated previously unbeaten Wilson 67-60 and then started their Christmas vacation by trouncing Herzl 76-62. The Vikings showed the effects of the Christmas layoff as they lost to Morton 88-80 for the only conference loss of the season. The North Park men were back on the winning band wagon as they won their next three encounters — all conference wins: 73- 71 in the memorable second half rally over Wright (a game won by the subs as six of the first seven players finished on the bench because of five fouls; 79- 70 over a high-rated La Salle-Peru quintet; and a 70-61 in a second easy triumph over Thornton. In four non- conference games, the Vikings won three: 80-66 over Elgin; 78-71 in an overtime thriller against Med. School, and an avenging 74-70 triumph over Navy Pier. The lone loss was a second one from La Grange, 90-82. In the final season games, the Vik- ings clinched the Big Six title as they went on a scoring rampage in whip- ping Wilson 92-75, and Herzl 94-83. In two post-season games with Joliet, the champs of the Suburban Jun- ior College League, the teams split, each gaining a one point victory on their home court. At Von Steuben, the Vikings came from behind to eek out a 1 4 %f 72-71 victory, while at Joliet, the Blue and Gold led all the way only to lose it in the end, 59-58. Thus another sea- son is linished, but its memories will linger long in the hearts ot the team and with all ot us who saw them play. The ' 52-53 team was captained by Roger " Butch " Lotgren, a fancy drib- bling guard who would often break down the side lines lor a beautiful lay- up. He was the spark plug, a real cap- tain, and a real team man. " Easy Ed " Dwyer was the high scoring center and also a steady re- bounder. " Easy " got 33 points against La Grange, his other highs being 30, 28, and 26 all in conference play. His 405 point total for the season led the team. Dwight " Wiggy " Person was an- other team man who was second in points. He was a steady man and was known to be a cool player when the tension was high.

Art Edstrom was a regular guard during first semester play. At the close ot the semester he graduated, but his ball handling and rebounding were big factors in the early games. Dave Goethe rounds out the sopho- mores on the team. Dave was a valu- able substitute who could be counted on for points or rebounds when the go- ing was tough. The frosh were represented on the first five by Bill Peterson. Bill played in a double post position with " Easy " and used his height lor tip-ins and re- bounds. Don Dierson, who was substitute guard and sixth man displayed a lot of drive, was elected captain for the ' 53- ' 54 season. Reuben Hanson, Dixon Jones, Chuck Anderson, and Wayne Funk rounded out the treshmen, playing their first year of college ball.

Adel SEMINABY BASKETBALL One of the tew organized, of many unorganized means of fellowship in the Seminary during the school year was the basketball team last Winter. Some seventeen Sem and pre-Sem men participated at one time or an- other during the two-month season. North Park was a member of a league, with seven other Chicago semi- naries, sponsored by the Inter-Semi- nary Movement. The Covenant team was unofficially led by Jim Erickson and Marv Wickstrom, and semi-ofii- cially coached by collegian Ed Dwyer. The group had a disappointing scoring season, winning only two games, while losing six, one, the non- conference game with Bethel. The trip to Minneapolis and Bethel between semesters in February was the high point in the year for the team. This year the home team was host at a coffee-time following each league game. The chance for fellowship and story-swapping was appreciated by all. Cooperation from many quarters helped make the season worthwhile. Two sets of uniforms were loaned by the College team. Approval was granted to play two home games in Von Steuben gym after College con- tests. Many were the volunteers to keep score and use their cars for trans- portation . Following are the teams played, and the scores (N. P. ' s listed first): Northern Baptist (44-38), McCormick (31-70), Trinity (53-77), Bethany (50-69), Bethel, Mpls. (40-80), Chicago (60-30), Garrett (68-80), Evangelical, Naperville (records lost). The men, and their season ' s points: W. Adell, 51; L. Anderson, 24; R. Carl- son, 2; L. Drotts, 7; ].

BASEBALL The ' 52 Baseball squad had only three returning lettermen at the start of the season. " Jersey " Gustafson (de- riving his nickname from his home state of New Jersey) Jim Johnson and Paul Johnson. Newcomers to make the team were pitchers Gordie Lundeen, Ken Randall; inhelders Art Edstrom, Lee Adell, Chuck Allen, and Butch Lof- gren; and outfielders Ralph Sager and Paul Swanson. The season was not impressive as the team won three and lost eight. Standouts on the team were pitchers Jersey Gustafson, who collected two victories and Gordie " Fireball " Lun- deen. (At one time Gordie had a rec- ord of eight strike outs and eight hit batsmen.) The ' 53 squad had a nucleus of seven returning lettermen. They were Loigren, Adell, Allen, Sager, Swanson, and Lundeen. Early season prospects looked promising with the initial game scheduled for April. Row I: Manager C. Jolmson. K Randall, R Loigren, E.

Roy Fowler and Junior Young also gar- nered second places in the shot put and broad jump, while Ed Dwyer placed third, running his first open 440. The mile relay team composed of Dwyer, Rudnick, Carlson, and Fay also showed strong in placing second, only a few yards behind the Wilson Col- lege team which had earlier set the Daily News Relay record. Point leaders for the 52 season were Rudnick, Dwyer, and Carlson, fol- lowing in that order. The ' 53 cinder squad was built around returning lettermen, R. Johnson, Fay, and Lake.

L H I „kr SWIMMING The ' 53 swimming team was han- dicapped by a lack of manpower throughout the season. In various dual meets, the Viking men were dunked by teams with all-around depth and ability. The first two meets showed the Vik- ing men needed more conditioning as they were defeated by Wilson 50-16 and Morton 47-19. The next meet was against Wright, the conference cham- pions. Their " water power " was way too much for the Blue and Gold as they went under 53-8. A scheduled meet with Herzl was cancelled. On March 6 at the conference meet, Wright ' s powerful team took first with 56 points. Morton and Wilson fol- lowed with 22 and 17, and North Park took fourth with 8. Despite the season record, the spirit of competition was al- ways high and North Park can be proud of the small, but fighting tank- men. Letter winners were M a r st o n Swanberg, who placed third in the breast stroke and swam on the medley relay team that placed third; Norm Ryding, who placed fourth in the breast stroke; Bruce Erickson and Whitey Anderson who swam on the third place medley relay team; and Don Lindman and Wilton Anderson who swam on the fourth place free style relay team. Bo Peterson, special stu- dent from Sweden, joined the team at mid-season and competed in the back stroke. 123 TENNIS . . . SECOND PLACE- SEASON RECORD North Park 3 Herzl North Park 3 Morton North Park 3 Wright North Park 3 Herzl North Park 1 Wilson 2 North Park 2 Morton 1 North Park 3 Wright North Park 1 Wilson 2 As the ' 52 tennis season be- gan, hopes were much higher than they had been in past years as the North Park men had two lettermen returning. Earl Lind- gren, last year ' s number one man, and Ralph Pearson, who played doubles. Newcomers to the sguad were Jack Boer, a freshman stand- out who played in the second sin- gles spot, and sophomore Armour Swanson who teamed with Pear- son in the doubles. The Vikings were off to a bril- lian start as they shut out their first three opponents: Herzl, Mor- ton, and Wright. The team didn ' t lose a single set in these matches. After their quick start, the Vikings again swept by Herzl 3-0 in prepa- ration for their " big one " against undefeated Wilson. When the team faced Wilson, the tide turned and the Vikings took their first defeat as only the doubles team (Swanson and Pear- son) won their matches. The next match was a non-conference affair with La Grange. The Blue and Gold were a second time beaten, 2-1 as Boer came from behind to be the only North Parker to win his match. However, the netmen fin- ished the season with two more 1IG SIX CONFERENCE victories against Morton 2-1 and Wright 3-0. In a return game with Wilson the Vikings were again nipped 2-1 by the conference champions. In the conference match Wil- son took the crown as it edged North Park who took second in both singles and doubles. Earl Lindgren captured second place as he was edged 2-6, 6-1, 1-6. In the doubles match, the North Park duo ol Swanson and Boer put on a terrific match with Wilson, but end- ed up on the short end after the three sets. (7-9, 8-6, 1 -6.) Thus the ' 52 net men gained undisputed second place in the conference. THE NETMEN II Messerall. I. Boer. R P a, r. Linds INTRAMUI1AL VOLLEYBALL Interest was very high and com- petition was keen as the volleyball tournament got underway. Because of the high interest it was necessary to have four leagues as compared with three in 1952. Twenty-seven teams were offering their keenest competition this year as compared to twenty last year. The teams will play each one in their respective leagues once and then the top lour teams in each league will compete in the championship tourney. The Polekats III are back again this year with a great team and hope to make this the third straight year that a team with the name " Polekats " has walked oft with the number one prize. The lour leagues are the red, white, blue, and gold. In the white league there are lour teams which rank high. Led by the undefeated Polekats III, the white league can also boast of such top contenders as the Sophomores, the Cool Fools and the Unknowns. In the gold league, the Facu lty, the Zyzzoge- tons and the Red Raiders are tops. In the blue league, the Spikes, Swedes, and Rats are doing quite well, while the red league is being paced by the Jubilant Juniors and the Guys and Dolls. The whole volleyball season has added up to a lot of fun for everyone who took part in it, whether they won or lost, for volleyball has become one of the top intramural sports at North Park. LOOKING BACK . . . At graduation time all thoughts are turned toward the future, but for a few minutes let ' s look back on some of the happy memories and experiences of the past school year. As in every year the President ' s reception was one of the first social events and was held in the gym on September 23rd. Now that we were acguainted somewhat, the flood of school activities took up much of our time; student council members were elected; fifty-three new members were added to the choir; the News and Cupola staffs started work on their all- year projects and the year had offi- cially begun. In the line of sports, we won our first football game against the Wheaton " B " team in October. The weekend of October 3rd-5th we were challenged by an inspiring prayer con- ference and also by Dr. Carl Lugn during Christian Emphasis week. None of us will forget the Homecoming weekend with our pep rally, football game, Queen Carol Le Vahn and tre- mendous decorations which bright- ened up our campus. November 17 was the first all-school roller skating party, and on November 21 we won our first basketball game against Univer- sity of Illinois Medical students. On De- cember 10th Gordie Helberg and Ralph Soger were elected to the presidency of the freshmen and sophomore classes respectively. Per usual, Christmas season was filled with many happy activities: student council Christmas party with the crowning of Alyce Lar- son as Lucia Queen, a Smorgasbord given by Geijer Club, and he annual presentation of the Messiah at Re- deemer Covenant Church and Tues- day Evening Series. Five new mem- bers were added to Phi Kappa early in February and Missionary Volunteers held their annual banquet in Sohlberg Commons February 13. Our Vikings captured the conference basketball championship by defeating Herzl on February 19th and finished the season with a two game series against Joliet. During February and March we parti- cipated in an intramural volleyball Tournament. Throughout Missionary Emphasis Week, March 2-9, we heard many fine speakers from the foreign field. The Tridentians presented a County Fair complete with traditional booths, boxing, wrestling, and a dixie- land band on March 20th. The Iowa and Demenudi Club banquets were held March 11th and 28th. The On- Campus girls had a St. Patrick ' s Day theme for the dorm formal given March 14th. After Easter, the choir looked for- ward to their Eastern tour, and gave the annual Orchestra Hall Concert May 14th. May 15th was College day when we journeyed to the Indiana Dunes for a day of fun, food and fel- lowship. The following weekend we went to the college banquet at the Spinning Wheel in Hinsdale. The year, which had slipped by so fast was brought to a close with the President ' s reception, spring commencement con- cert, baccalaureate, and finally, gradu- ation on June 8th. i f -a ' Y il KEEP A VIGIL WHILE WEIVE GONE cupola mi W- ' ACADEMY ARVID AUELL Blue and Cold 4; Basketball 4; Track 4.

Under the leadership of Barbara Leske, Shirley Bystrom, Beatrice Jo- seph, and Trudy Jensen, the Alpha girls ' club experienced a year well- rounded with activities. Ruth Lundahl was faculty advisor. ALPHA The selling of mums at Homecoming provided a much needed source of revenue. Daisy Maes and L ' il Abners anxiously awaited the arrival of the annual Sadie Hawkins Day in November, but the highlight of the so- cial season came in April when Alpha presented their big all-school party . Beta, open to all junior girls, was one of the most active organizations this year, dividing time between charitable, spiritual, and social projects. Their great big blue and gold teddy bear, standing at the front gate BETA t° 9 ree t y° u erf Homecoming, put the returning alums in a fighting mood; and obliging " Marryiri Sam " made many a match at the traditional Sadie Hawkins Day. Again this year Thanksgiving baskets were given to needy families. Faculty advisor was Miss A. Pearson. GAMMA As active as ever this year, Gamma can be justly proud of the busy season enjoyed by its members. Miss Norma Brandel, the club ' s advisor, encouraged a clothing drive for needy German students, and the admission fee charged at a lecture sponsored by the girls of Gamma went to buy CARE packages for German people. Both of these efforts were rewarded with letters of appreciation. Besides being active in charitable projects, Gamma sponsored a suc- cessful booth at Sadie Hawkins Day. NU PI DELTA For the freshman girls of Nu Pi Delta, this year proved to be an excit- ing and new experience. Never before having participated in a club of this sort, they got into the swing of things like experienced hands, selling mums tor the Homecoming festivities and sponsoring two booths at the annual Sadie Hawkins Day Party. Along with social activities, Nu Pi Delta also devoted much of its time and diligence to various service and charitable projects. Miss Jean Lundstedt was the faculty advisor. Row Row l PI DELTA 1: J.

The Pep Club, organized to stimulate interest in all athletic events, has this year launched an all-out campaign to promote school spirit within the student body. Lending efficiency and encouragement to the cheerleaders, they con- PEP CLUB veyed their pep and enthusiasm to spectators at all the football and bas- ketball games; and at Homecoming they sponsored the big pep rally, complete with decorations, refreshments, and a skit. Officers were Donna Peterson, Deppie Costas, Martha Gronenberg, and Shirlee Bystrom. Many thanks to all for their wonderful support. The comparatively new Drama Club, under the guidance this year of Miss Betty Nelson, is ably functioning to serve North Park students who have interest and talent in the field of acting and dramatics. Led by offi- DRAMA cers en Yoder, Preston Kelly, Jean Nessel, and Phyllis Rowland, the club CLUB works as a group — planning, producing , directing and designing their own stage sets for plays given throughout the school year. The most outstanding of these was given shortly after Christmas. May we extend our appreciation to this club for t he fine entertain- ment it has given us. Throughout the school year, Omega Tri-Hi-Y carries out many and varied duties. Its motto is " to create, maintain, and extend throughout the home, school and community high standards of Christian character " . With this in mind, at Thanksgiving the girls adopted a needy family OMEGA anc [ provided them with a turkey and the trimmings. They added to the TR1-H1-Y f un f Sadie Hawkins Day by sponsoring a turtle-racing booth, and gal- lons of " Kicka-poo ]oy Juice " were consumed. At Homecoming they were responsible for the throne built for the queen and her court. With Miss Marilyn Johnson as faculty advisor, the officers were Carol Nelson, Sigrid Hanson, Leanne Hicks, Carol Junker, and Allene Carlson. Ron R,,, Ro K ' „„ OMEGA TRI-HI-Y M. Johnson. A. Carlson.

The person to go to with your suggestion is your coun- seling group ' s Religious Council repre- sentative. The purpose of the Religious Coun- cil is to represent the student ' s taste in religious matters. In keeping with this, one chapel service every other week is presented by the Council. Its officers during the past year were Alan Johnson, president; John Swanson, vice-president; Janice An- derson, secretary; and was led by Chaplain Erickson. 166 111 o unit " To witness in order that other stu- dents who are not Christians may learn to know Christ, and to strengthen those who are Christians. " The Hi-Crusaders Club has be- come an exceedingly spirited organi- zation on the North Park campus this year. Speakers, religious films, and parties have constituted most of the meetings, held on Monday evenings in Viking Lounge. During the first se- mester the club presented a " Fun Night " for the Hi-C radio broadcast and in Youth for Christ meetings has been a source of inspiration for several mem- bers. Guided by a student in the North Park Seminary, Mr. Warren Nelson, the officers were Ruth Pearson, president; Alan Johnson, vice-president; ]oanne de Grasse, secretary; ]ohn Swensen, treasurer; and Carol Junker, social chairman.

Those original chapeaus you have been seeing around campus fit on the pointed heads of the potential members of the National Honor So- ciety. These students have been selected on the basis of their leadership, scho- lastic and character ratings to become members of this national organization. The North Park Chapter was this year headed by Preston Kelly, presi- dent; Allan Johnson, vice-president; Marilyn Severson, secretary; Carol Nelson, treasurer; and Marsha McDan- iel, social chairman; and Miss Back- lund, faculty advisor. Activities for the year included the compiling of a school directory and the direction of the Tuesday Evening Se- ries in both the spring and fall. Row 1: M. Severson, C. Nelson, P. Kelly. M.

I -I ' )Is The work of the News staff is ap- parently a futile job — for after one issue is printed, there is then another one to think about, and then another. Co-Editors Al Ofsson and Dave Johnson and Sports Editor Chuck Green were constantly hounding the reporters to try and meet deadlines, but every other Wednesday all the headaches were forgotten when the rush toward the stack of papers in Old Main resulted in gratifying expressions on the faces of the students. Working on the staff of writers were Marge Almloi, Fran Kare, Caryl Anderson, Fred Tripp, Sonya Ottoson, Marietta Lauer, Ken Yoder, Shirley Bystrom, Joan Nelson, and Jim Thomp- son. Without the help and guidance of Mr. E. Gustav Johnson, faculty advisor, the News could never attain the suc- cess it enjoys. 170 Now that it is all finished, and the 1953 Cupola is in your hands, we hope you like it as well as we do. It wa wonderful fun. X , ' Twas the night before deadline! fust to the left of the book store, the light burned brightly. One could see the tired, but determined, figures of co- editors, Marilyn Severson and Preston Kelly — one drawing odd patterns on the neatly lined paper -- the other searching frantically through a stack of photographs. The typewriter clicked spasmodically - - Chuck Green, our sports editor, was putting down on pa- per the thrills and spills of the last year ' s Viking teams for posterity in this 1953 Cupola. Huddled in the corner were Carol Wilson, Janel Mulder and Deppie Cos- tas compiling the material on clubs and other sections, and, lest we forget, thanks to our photographers Ken Hirst and Ron Berg for their prospectus in capturing the pictures in this book. Last but not least, our very best thanks for the inspiration of our advisor, Mr. E. Gustav Johnson, whose salty good humor has weathered this dead- line storm year after year. 171 ACADEMY CHOIR r fe ' fc A n V u ilmim tt« M Jf fJjiJ J I. Engblom. B. VVuesl. K. Nordine, R. Kroeger.

( )STRAND As the 1952 North Park Academy football team trotted oft the field after their last game, it was the first time in four years that they did not carry with them the Pri- vate School League crown. Almost danger- ously undermanned and continually plagued with injuries, Coach Hed- strand called on underclassmen to bolster up the faltering Vik- ings. Extremely rough competition and lack of experience also attributed to the unsuccessful season. Many things remain in our minds long after the grid play ended. Among those we remember are . . . The thrill of the season ' s opener . . . The disappointment felt when Dave Witt broke his ankle . . . Swanson ' s 13 completed passes in the Minnehaha clash . . . The Vikings ' rolling victory against Parker . . . Bram Nel- son ' s startling snags . . . Erickson ' s smashes off tackle . . . Sea- wall ' s terrific line play . . . The loss of McCurdy at mid-season . . . Bill Nelson ' s booming kickoffs . . . The Coach ' s pep talks . . . Burns ' gallops around end . . . The disappointing Harvard defeat . . . Richie Johnson ' s dogmatic playing . . . Queen ' s fine subbing at Q. B. . . . Those rainy day practice sessions . . . Tur- insky ' s line plunges . . . Hansen filling up the gaps in the for- ward wall . . . Sternaman ' s defensive work . . . Rubinkam ' s cen- ters . . . The pep rallies . . . The Homecoming game . . . Willms ' brilliant defense . . . The fine play of the Sophs . . . Those many injuries . . . The whistle that ended the season. 181 BR AM NELSON End BILL HANSEN rackle DIRK W ' ll IMS Co Captain BILL SEAWALL All-Conference Guard ygoou North Park North Park 7 North Park 19 North Park 6 North Park North Park North Park -!

Coach Hedstrand ' s cagers fared quite well, however, when all the factors are con- sidered. Building a team from last year ' s last place club was no easy task. Conference competition was ex- tremely rugged, and inexperience added to the handicap. Despite many disappointments, we will long remember . . . The wel- come addition from Iowa . . . The sea- son ' s opener . . . Adell ' s spectacular play . . . The Minnehaha game . . . Witt at center . . . The annual Alumni game . . . Homer ' s " mohawk " . . . Christmas vacation practices . . .
