Q 1 i_ DEDICATION Since all the world ' s a stage and all the men and women merely players, someone must make-up, prompt, and direct them as they make their entrances and their exits . . . To Dr. Stover goes the tribute of having directed many to the doors, opening onto the stage of life, marked in bold letters — Happiness, Success, Fame, and Fortune. To this Director Superb the 1945 Hatter is dedicated. is A in s ! k o c r i ■Pi j I f 1 1 e Facultu ' ; I v • s I B ■Si THE PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE The session 1944-1945 has been one of high achievement despite war conditions. The enrollment has increased 47 per cent over the preceding year. Students and faculty have given their best to make Stetson finer in scholarship, finer in culture, finer in the develop- ment of Christian character. New teachers have been employed. The Million Dollar Improvement and Development Campaign has been initiated and a total of more than s 5 40,01)11 in cash and pledges has been received. The personalized program and the quarter system are proving successful. Plans have been completed to furnish the best opportunities possible in education and in counsel to returning Veterans. Thus Stetson continues to go forward. I count it a privilege to extend greetings and best wishes to the Stetson Family every- where. Sincerely, Wh.i.iam Sims Aiiin, President. 3 Harry C.

STETSON UNIVERSITY WHO SEftV£D TN THE SECOND WORLD WAR A .c x r r r r j r y j r r r r r r r r » r r r r r r j - S BARBARA LEY PRICE Magna Cum Laucle V BENJAMIN HADDOX Cum Lamlc ANNETTE BOLTON CLARK Cum Laude ' (), here has been much throwing about of brains — " Shakespeare RUTH DURRANCE " All the Things You Are " Ruth has " made history. " She is the first girl to hold the office of student body presi- dent. We haven ' t for one minute regretted our choice. Seeing that she had an over- powering dose of leadership the Tri Deltas elected her president of Alpha Delta. She has specialized on the cornet for many years and can hold her own in competition with the best. She is particularly fond of sergeants. In fact intends to make one her " career. " This fondness did not keep her from being in practically everything on campus. Ruth is undeniably lovely in everything she does . . . plays an admirable game of tennis . . . and is a natural when it comes to being a genuine all-round person. " (Ruth 56 EDITH MARIE GARDNER " Got a Taut l of Texas in My Walk " Edie Ree has taken a lot of teasing about the way she walks but she is just the one who can take it. Besides its being a very original walk — it ' s " Kute. " There ' s no amount of money that could buy a sense of humor such as " Gardner ' s Special. " She has developed unique faculties for entertainment and is the life of the party on any occasion. Yet all of this is dropped on the entrance of a serious moment. She ' s found the real values of life and never fails to take a stand for them. I ' ve heard rumors that she can sing her way into any man ' s heart . . . even a " Major ' s " ! Not only does she sing, but can act equally as well. We were thoroughly convinced of this after seeing her take the lead in " The Willow and I. " She has continually received high hon- ors — from outstanding freshman to " Who ' s Who. " Also was elected vice-president of her sorority, Alpha Xi Delta. She ' s attractive, witty, sincere, congenial . . . need I go on? " JU 57 LURA TYNER " Don ' t Fence Me In " As president of the senior class, president of Y. W. A., student — or just as a friend — she definitely has a mind of her own. She has been a freshman adviser for the past three years. Her word is " law " to them, but she loves ' em with a heart of gold. She dropped anchor in the field of soci- ology, holds an A.B. degree, and is well on the way to " making good. " She ' s contributed a lot to holding down traditions such as, " A Picture of Life ' s Other Side " — wearing jeans — putting Stetson in the highlights on conventions. She can be serious or gay, which ever the occasion demands. There are no frills at- tached . . . just plain Tyner . . . what will we do without her? " i ijnei BARBARA LUPFER " Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea " Bobby is always tearing her hair. If it isn ' t the desk girl schedule it ' s a calculus problem to work. I don ' t know how she did it but nevertheless she did. She has a magnetic personality and knows how to use it. Her gay disposition adds a lot to her ability to win friends. We not only admire her for these traits, but more serious ones also. She ' s ever will- ing to have a heart to heart talk and deals out sympathy or frankness as the occasion demands. She hasn ' t missed a thing and as Editor- in-Chief we know she ' s worked hard on the Hatter for this year. Besides being in dozens of other things — vice-president of the Women ' s Council . . . tapped for the Honor . . . picked for " Who ' s Who " . . . etc. There ' s no end in naming her activities and in addition she has maintained a superior scholastic average. Her ever-ready grin is an invitation to friendship and you are automatically taken in. " (BoUy 59 LETA MITCHELL " Lei McOff UpTown " Leta has carted girls and boys to town for the past four years. However, this isn ' t all we remember her for. She wears a habitual smile and takes it from one meeting to the other. In spite of the many meetings she has to attend, she usually finds time-out for a chorus of " Have You Seen My New Shoes? " There is also a serious side to this ever pleasant character. She can easily shift from a gay mood into serious tenseness. In fact Leta can meet any circumstance and be com- pletely master of the situation. She has a double major in biology and physical education. Due to her excellent work in this field we are expecting her to rank among the best in the future. We see her as a favorite among the favor- ites. She is reliable and will be remembered as doing any job she undertakes . . . well. Now you can see why . . . she was made president of the Women ' s Council . . . presi- dent of Zeta Tau Alpha . . . tapped for the Blazer club . . . and made " Who ' s Who " two years. She has set an example for us all. JL-ela r,(i MAURICE FAIN " Accentuate the Positive " Our favorite " preacher-boy " and big brother of the campus is Fain. He ' s looked after us young ' uns on convention trips for the past three years. When the trucks broke down he ' d keep the cheer up with a performance of " Hoy-man. " Religion is not only a profession with him but it ' s the center of his life. He ' s already well on his way towards being a successful minister. Immediately recognized by his " kangeroo- lope " . . . but it ' s his way of " get ' n there. " Always on time and willing to work. He was given the tough job of being man- ager of the Glee Club. Not mentioning all of his other activities such as ... Ye Mystic Krew . . . president of State Baptist Student Union . . . and picked for " Who ' s Who. " THUS . . . We ' re expecting Stetson to go forward with Fain. CJOttl 61 " II ill the world ' s .1 stage — We ' d like to wear the royal gowns And have the spotlights follow us But Fate has cast us to be clowns.

If we can catch sight of only a few of the events that came to pass it will be worth the effort. But so much has happened. It makes us weary thinking of how Stetson was constantly growing with its million dollar campaign. It really went over big. There was a war going on then which was the reason the men were mere freckles on the face of our thriving population of women. The big shot upperclassmen were overwhelmed at the vast number of freshmen. It seems to me those rats were a little backward there for one week. I saw some of them skipping to class with their clothes on upside down, while others insisted upon dangling their beaux pictures around their necks. Yes, those freshmen were great nature lovers too, especially with sandspur pickings and the like. But that soon did out with Sweet William. The B. S. U. Convention: that broken down truck, Lake City, " Frog " Watts napping on the stage. We thought we ' d never make it — but we did. What rollicking fun we had at the Halloween Carnival at the Stetson Stall! Jack o ' lanterns, witches, black cats, and goblins succeeded in making the colorful booths great attractions for everyone. Queen Neely and maids were the highlight of the evening in their beautiful gowns, not forgetting the costume parade. The dentist had a booming business after the freshmen cleared fifteen dollars on their candy (?) apples. That was the year of delayed rushing in fraternities. It wasn ' t long before things were in full swing though. Ribbons, then pledge pins were over the hearts of the latest recruits. The men ' s fraternities were building up again, too, with " frat " houses re- opening. Thou Winter Wind certainly blew us in 1944. Yeah, right into the middle of a hurricane! Whiz, bang, crash, zowie, and a couple of chatter, chatters (that was my teeth). The lights even went out, but that didn ' t keep us down. We had a great party in the parlors by candlelight, while the trees did the " lindy " outside. It was definitely " out of this world. " A lot of destruction, just to get out of classes for a day. What won ' t we try next? The L. T. was exceedingly popular with Dr. Stover directing some of its greatest performances. The house was crowded for every attraction. The season included " Seven Sisters, " " The Willow and I, " " Alice Sit-by-the-Fire, " " Ring around Elizabeth, " and " Twelfth Night. " Continued on Page 77 69 . i 4ii TR % 7(1 1944-45 John B.

CURTAIN CALL Continued from Page 69 And those basketball games — how could we ever forget them! The crowds were great; of course, it couldn ' t have been those gobs that Stetson played, or the WAVES, or . . . could it? Hmmm — The B. S. U. did great work that year too. And we do mean work — remodeling the house, the pretty flowers we tried to talk into blooming over-night. Double talk, that ' s what it took. Also the news that blossomed along with our posies was great — those Christian Collegiate columns kept up with all the " who-does-what-and-why " gossip plus the " don ' t-get-nosey-bub " editions of campus activities. Then Happy Day! Thanksgiving rolled around and the thrill of going home to turkey dinner, football games, and family pow-wows. Oh Joy, a vacation from exams and homework (well, we did study once in awhile). We had only a few days to gather together again before Christmas. The two parties were huge successes. C. Davis made a good Santa Claus with the beautiful decorations in the commons as a background. The exchanging of luxurious presents, mainly: baby rattles, pop-guns, horns, and whistles. Chaudoin Parlors was another scene of gala red and green festivities. The entertainment flourished, orchestra and refreshments were enjoyed — even though they were thrown at us; the fruit, I mean. Poem (in case you didn ' t recognize it): The weeks passed in Christmas vacation, Glorious days of relaxation. (You can ' t say I didn ' t try!) But back to school we did go — how dull, only kidding naturally. It was a great reunion, old friends collapsing into each other ' s arms with cries of delight — seeing each other after so long a time, you know. It ' s really very touching after the second- hundredth time. Some of the things that came back with us weren ' t quite so welcome. Mumps and measles, for instance, followed by two weeks of rcsf in the " infer-mary " — bwang! Hark! What else did we hear — the clatter of wedding bells bringing forth our lovey doves: Bolton versus Clark. The result was a tie in holy matrimony. Speaking of recollections, that well-beaten path led by Leta and her gang of C. M. ' s to third floor, south wing, in search of coconut juice to refresh the exhausted Woman ' s Council. Another party, hearts aglow — this time it was the St. Valentine ' s party in the com- mons enlivened by slinky hairdo ' s, dreamy formals, and food, fond, FOOD! (Oh, how I love that stuff.) Before we knew it, we had something other than food to cram into those poor, defenseless bodies of ours. Exams, term papers, parallel, and anything else we didn ' t know enough about, stared us in the face. The survival of the fittest came about along with graduation. Thus we sailed away in a stream of tears with " bye-now ' s " into our own individual lives with memories of a most wonderful collegiate year. Bump! Well, that ' s definitely the last curtain call, but Stetson in ' 44- ' 45 was really a magnificent performance. 77 1. Fulfilled dreams. 2. The Engs. 3. The gang ' s all here. 4. Betty and Kunes. 5.

It is a dubious honor because surely no other job in school carries as much responsibility and plain hard work for the slight recognition gained.

Koon foi fOHN ' » PREVIEW OF COMING ATTRACTIONS " The 1945 Hatter would not be complete without a few words concerning Stetson ' s " coming attractions. " Of course there have been a good many words spoken concerning this subject during the past year. The students, however, as skeptical a group as are most college students, waited with tongue in cheek till something more than just talk was produced. When cash and checks started coming in, we were convinced that there really was a Million Dollar Campaign in progress. Most of the students even went so far as to take the generous attitude that it really would be nice for the students that would be here in days hence when all of these improvements and additions would come to pass. But the announcement that Stetson Lodge had been purchased for a girls ' dorm for next year really started the ball rolling. The same day came the announcement that Stetson Hall would be remodeled and made into a girls ' dorm during the summer. Now there was an announcement that would really jar any Stetsonite — past or present! We needed nothing more to convince us that things were really happening — and fast. A view into the Stetson scene 1945-46 shows a number of changes. Two new girls ' dormitories for one thing; and Conrad Hall devoid of frills but full of boys once more — (returning veterans will play a large part in helping to bring this to pass). Gazing just a bit farther into the future, we can see a new fine arts building in place of the present music school. As soon as conditions will permit a new school of religion and law school will also become a part of the campus scene. These are no longer mere fanciful dreams but dreams with blue-prints and a fair amount of money to make them come true. All of us realize that the buildings and facilities alone cannot make a school. The quality of the people that make up the administration, faculty, and student body is largely responsible for this. We arc convinced that Stetson has lon g had the quality and is now facing mi opportunity to have the quantity as well. Realizing this, it is with a renewed feeling of pride that we, the present student body, sing " Hail, Alma Mater, dear! " U2 ' ....
