' intellectually administration Robert Lee Stuart, Ph.B., D.D. President With befitting ceremonies Taylor University and her constituency inaugurated their new President, Robert Lee Stuart. During the two- day services Taylor received greetings from numerous col- leges of the United States. Guest speakers included the Bryan Pittenger Sixteen Inauguration Presidents Akers of Asbury, Harper of Evansville, Pitten- ger of Ball State, and Bryan of Indiana University. After a word of encouragment to the small college by Bishop Blake, President Stuart took the oath and delivered his in- augural address. Akers Harper Seventeen Burt W.

Assistant to President Twenty-Six «Hfe » Furthermore 1 n a further catalogue of officials, Taylor presents a small army. Her faculty and administrative officers are numerous, but their corp of secondaries prove beyond a shadow of a doubt the capability of T. U. to handle five hundred students. Two departments boast of student assistants. In Biology Professor Furbay is assisted by Albert Mathias, a Senior majoring in that field. Likewise, Professor Pogue has Harry Griffiths as his assistant in the Speech department. In the business office there is an efficient force of clerks to handle that end of administration. During the later part of the year Guy Duckwall was added to the staff to supervise the office work. Lola Ayres is the business-like lady who supervises the bookkeeping. Under these regular employees are a number of aids who work full or part time as needed. The Vice-President and Deans have selected secretaries from the student body to take care of their routine duties. In supervising the large dormitory Miss Delia Howard serves ef- ficiently. She has charge of all guest rooms and the hospital rooms. An innovation of the year was the employing of Miss Mary Furbay as the college nurse. It was largely through her work that we have had a mini- mum of disease this year. The very practical side of the university is cared for by Mr. Watkins, known to the student body as " Daddy, " who superintends the heating plant. He is ably seconded by Mr. Fox, plumbing engineer, who can be seen about the campus most any time. The " trouble-chasing " depart- ment is headed by Mr. Abbey, who is always on the job to fix things when they are damaged. The student janitors are supervised by William McNeil, who is in charge of the general maintainance of buildings. In conjunction with the university there are a number of institutions which serve very efficiently. The Corner Grocery is an enterprising con- cern under the management of Mrs. Keith. The Bookstore is also owned and operated by the university, under student management. The Taylor University Press is an established concern with a good business. It is successfully managed by Mr. Butsch. In close relation with the college is the Greenhouse which has been leased by Mr. Atkinson. It fills a very necessary place in supplying the dining hall with fresh vegetables. Twenty-Seven Kletzing, Junior Campbell, Freshman Rhine, Senior Erbst, Special Kenyon, Sophomore The Student Council %, he Student Council this year has been outstanding because of its activity. Its main duty is to create a closer cooperation between the faculty and student body and to accomplish this the Council met several times with the Faculty, presenting the students ' viewpoint on the several ques- tions. Besides this, the Student Council has been active in other fields. On September 22nd it sponsored the first social affair of the year, a recep- tion given for the New Students. Throughout the school year it has been responsible for the Friday night programs in the Dining Hall. At the end of the winter term, the Council, for the first time in six years, sent a student delegate to the National Students Federation Conven- tion at Toledo, which met from December 29 to January 2. Then at the request of the President it divided the student body into twenty prayer and discussion groups. Acting upon a suggestion brought by a delegate to the National Volunteer Convention at Buffalo, a telegram was sent to President Hoover recommending that a student representative be included in the World Disarmament Conference. On April 9th another Faculty- Student get-to-gether was held in the Maytag Gymnasium and its success seemed the fitting end to a very successful year.

Freshman Class w hen Taylor University opened her doors for the school year 1931-32, she was justly proud to admit the largest Freshman class in her history, a class which at that time was extraordinary in but two respects, size and verdancy. Thereafter its singularity became evident in numerous other fields. Ever since the hearty welcome which it received at the New Student Reception this class has daily been attaining greater fame and striving for the better and more worthwhile things in life. Its choice of class officers proved to be very satisfactory. To them belongs much of the praise for the success of the class in its initial year, for it was they who guided the class enterprises and aided in all phases of its existence. Much credit is due to Professor Cornwell, who, as class sponsor, lent a willing and able hand in the undertakings of the group. When those coveted green hats arrived, they were procured with dispatch, donned with hesitancy and worn with gusto. Little did the class of ' 35 realize its sophisticated appearance, and therefore gloried in its ignorance. However, its peppy basketball team succeeded in swamping the other class teams by three consecutive victories. Other activities of the class include the Sophomore-Freshman party, and the Seth Parker chapel program which brought no little comment. Thirty-Two Top row, left to right: P.

Sophomore Class 1, t was the usual type of new student that gathered at Taylor University in the fall of 1930 when the call to seek a Christian education was given by the president, Dr. John Paul. Representing many places be- tween Japan and Maine, Alaska and Florida, the group of seventy-five elected Robert Titus as the one to lead them throughout their Freshman year. There was closed up in this small group much literary and athletic talent. Miss Helen Heaton was judged the best pianist in school, and two of its members, Robert Titus and Robert Dennis, secured a coveted place on the Taylor University male quartette. Helen Gilmore, Hazel Simons, William Breen, and Arthur Howard were awarded places among the best athletes on the campus. With Professor Wilson Paul as their class sponsor, they enjoyed several good times at parties and an early morning hike and breakfast. During the second year, with Dr. John Furbay as class sponsor, and Bernard Coldiron as president, this class took an active part in all phases of school life. Some of them were called upon to fill important offices in the different organizations, and all tried to do their best in making Taylor a real Christian college.

Special Class he Special Students, as the name infers, are a group of students who are taking special work in art, speech, music, or theology and those not having the required number of credits to become college Freshmen. The most distinguished post graduates are also classed as " Specials. " This group has one handicap in that it never has the same students from one year to the next. Some of the classified students wish to take some special work and join the group, but when the work is finished they return to the class to which they belong. Of course this tends toward variety and " variety is the spice of life. " But there are a few who hold the fort and in this way perpetuate the organization. Due to the small number of special students this year, very little has been accomplished as a class. In former years they have undertaken huge tasks and accomplished them, but the number was quite a bit larger then. However, they are still existing and " where there is life there is hope. " This fair group with its polish, dignity and poise, add luster to our campus ; a fact which none can deny. Thirty-Four juniors Anderson Davis Bailey- Duckworth VIOLET ANDERSON, Plymouth, Iowa.

The class of thirty-three began green, but thanks to good influence and well-chosen associations shows, in its third year, every sign of a true-blue finish. As Frosh the class was led by the able Fostorian, Harry Griffiths, who piloted the red and black horde of seventy-two members to the cul- mination of an initial year.

Now will any be apt to forget the " Treasure-Isle " Breakfast which began sleepily and ended hilariously? The class party and other similar events served to establish the union of the class with the school and to make it an integral part of Taylor life.

Sometimes I think it is worthwhile to get tired; it feels so good to rest. The second year the class was increased in wisdom but decreased in numbers, then totalling but forty-nine. Unhalted, the class advanced with " Cap " Musselman in the executive chair and earned its share of merited laurals in all branches of college activity. The seniors eluded the " Year- lings " in Skip Day but by so close a margin in that even their bus tires were breathless — although possibly not because of fright.

Always in evidence — at 10:30 p. m. life of the class was consistent and progressive, finding its emblonic height in the devotions attendant to the Easter Sunrise Service and sophomore- sponsored breakfast. In athletics the spirit was strong, though it was con- tinuously losing fight in the matter of final scores, but not in regard to enthusiasm and courage. The party, a basket-social held in the Upland Town Hall was a campus-famed success, and the class reached its " in collegio medio " mark on June 8, almost before it was realized.

Fred Vosburg took his turn as class president this year and his term of office was characterized by a unified and loyal class as well as one that wore the garb " Upper Classman " like a model. The Junior Rules reached a greater peak of practicality and enforcement than has yet been attained. The Junior-Senior Banquet at Huntington ' s LaFountaine Hotel was a fine example of undergraduate formal social attraction. But the glories of the class are yet to be written — for next year it will be — Seniors. Forty seniors SB» GRACE MARIAN ATKINSON, Chicago, Illinois.

Home Economics t hrough the persistent efforts of Miss Irma Dare, there has been a decided growth in the popularity of the Home Economic Department. A course in " Foods and Nutrition " has been added to the curriculum, in which a complete study of dietetics is made. This follows the beginning Foods course. Interesting work is also being done in courses in Cloth- ing, Advanced Dressmaking and Beginning Foods. By combining these courses with a variety of others, a full major in Home Economics is possible. One of the features of the Fall Term was the Open House and Tea, held in the rooms of the department. This annual Home Economics Ex- hibit included fancy candies and decorated cakes from the beginning Foods course, dainty pillows and pajamas from the Clothing course, and a group of stick graphs demonstrating the mineral value of common foods, from the course in Dietetics. A table set for a Christmas dinner was in- cluded in the exhibit. The Spring Term consisted of a Fashion Show in which little girls modeled the children ' s dresses that had been made by them in the class of dressmaking.

Tucker Editor-in-Chief Coming to the end of its seventh year as a weekly paper, The Echo con- tinues to maintain its consistant policy of upholding the standard and spirit of Taylor. This year she has offered to her constituency the current news coupled with entertaining and thought-provoking matter. Few will forget the thrill of the melodramic " Yellow Sheet " or the accounts of the experiences of the faculty when they were twenty-one. The staff has worked diligently to maintain journalistic excellence and successful func- tioning. With unique and terse columns of comment and features it has created a demand for each issue as it came from the press. The Echo was forced to make a number of replacements in her per- sonnel during the year. After the smoke of registration had cleared away there were numerous vacancies on the staff and it was with much difficulty that individuals were found willing to fill the positions. After editing two issues, Wesley Bush resigned the position in favor of other work. At the end of the Fall Term, Ethelyn Cochrane left school and her duties were assumed by Olive Tatem. With a few minor changes the staff completed the year as listed. Birdsall Gilmore Boyd Griswold Fifty-Eight mi, The Echo Herbert Boyd Donald Kenyon Joseph Kimbel Helen Gilmore Ruth Tabberer Faith Birdsall Arlene Summers Circulation Manager Assistant Advertising Manager Reporters Percival Wesche Jo Gates Robert Dennis Ferdinand Derk Don Smith Business Manager One of the traditions peculiar to Taylor is her Echo Contest, conducted each year to discover new talent, to permit more individuals to get into the journalistic field, and to sponsor class spirit. To this end no person holding a position on the regular staff is permitted to work on the class edition. The rivalry of the contest is intensified by the fact that in 1929, Editor George Lee donated a plaque trophy to be engraved with the name of the winning class each year. This year ' s contest was very close with evaluations of 755, 720, 685 and 680 for Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen, respectively. The Senior Staff headed by Reuben Judson, departed from the usual custom of extra pages but nevertheless packed the edition with interesting and well- written material, to merit first place. The Junior Edition, edited by John Perkins, came out with a new head and interesting copy. Marvin Schilling, in editing the Sophomore Edition, chose to run a number of cuts and lin- oleum blocks to enrich his publication. The Freshman Staff, headed by Ralph Cripe, stumbled into an all night party in pasting dummy but came out the next day with a popular edition. fM} P m King S. Smith Kleinefeld Summers O.

If we may voice an opinion, we think that The Gem has been treated too much as a " poor relation " by those not connected with its publication and even by some of those on the staff.

Circulation Manager Secretary Gilbert Spaude Business Manager Our Theme: — to chronicle Taylor University in her many aspects rela- tive to all achievements contingent with being enrolled or graduated from an educational institution is the purpose of this Gem. Our mode of ex- pression is one not common to annuals, but which we trust will prove ac- ceptable to such publication. We have attempted to link the cover and the opening section with the five sections of the body material through the use of one letter of " Taylor U. " in each. We have attempted to make these letters symbolic by their content. When designing these letters we have been in an anticipatory mood. In this mood we have visioned a future Taylor, though we cannot give it definite form (Cover). Thinking further, we have witnessed a change of administration and we are most expectant as Dr. Stuart ' s regime takes shape (Dedication). When the temporal element has been fully satis- fied in shaping these administrative visions, the current student will be taking his multifold place in the world and doing it acceptably (Divisions) . The art work is intended to be complementary to this theme. We have worked toward simplicity and balance with some tendency to a modern atmosphere. Kimbel King J. Severn H. Simons E.

Off with a good start, motivated by an amiable rush day, they have kept the old Thalonian Spirit on its throne and promoted an active interest in programs, athletic and literary contests. The initial program was sent by television from station T-H-A-L-O. It was followed by the new student program which showed much originality. The society enjoyed another of its traditional masquerade parties coniving with witches and enjoying pumpkin pie. The Christmas pageant, " The Holy Grail, " was repeated this year and was more impressive and striking in its interpretation than on its initial showing. A clever Washington program was given in which the figures in an old portrait of George and Martha came to life and were much disconcerted and terrified by our modern conveniences. The Philos with the Thalos pre- sented two of our own Taylor artists in a program by Professor Kenneth Wells and Professor Barton Rees Pogue, " Indiana ' s Second Riley. " Society athletic contests were quite interesting this year, and the Thalos were quite joyful over the capture of both Men ' s and Women ' s trophies in basketball. We hope with the motto " Know Thyself " that the Thalos will go on making each year bigger and better. Sixtv-Three Anderson, P. Dennis King Skelton Anderson, V. Doolittle Kletzing Smith, B.

The Philos presented Knapp ' s musical arrangement of " Mother Minnetonka " in an endeavor to display their talent to the newcomers. In return the Philo pledges made their debut by presenting scenes of typical dormitory life. This group was traditionally initiated into the society proper by the annual hay-ride at Halloween time. The society also entertained the student body with an appropriate Halloween program at which Professor Ali Ben Ali with her crystal foretold of something terrible, which proved to be the opera " I Smell Smoke, " featuring Miss Wolf and Mr. Winters as soloists. One of the most novel programs was the presentation of events in the life of Bishop Taylor, the " Man of God. " The climax of all the pro- grams was reached when the two societies presented Professors Wells and Pogue in a joint recital. The Philo men lost their series after five games and the women, even though displaying good team work, were defeated in three straight. In reviewing this year ' s intersociety activities, there has been much pep and rivalry, but the feeling has been one of more marked friendliness than that of previous years.

History Club I his year, in order that the students who are majoring and minoring in History and also others especially interested might know what was going on in the world, the History Club was organized. It is the purpose of the club to engage in discussions concerning matters of his- torical importance and current events. " The Presidential Possibilities in 1932 " and " China and Japan " have been two of the most outstanding and popular subjects discussed this year. Besides holding these meetings on alternating Wednesday evenings to consider topics of interest, the members of the club have been fortunate in procuring historical films which have shown up sides of a particular question or event hitherto unconsidered. As the organization becomes stronger in spirit and larger in membership, a greater number of these films will undoubtedly be pre- sented for the enjoyment and enlightenment of Taylor students. During the school year a small group of Upland High School students, vitally interested in the affairs of the club, expressed their desire to attend the meetings as regularly as possible. This request was gladly granted and several enjoyable times both social and business were had together. The officers of the club are : President, Roy L. Smith ; Secretary, Arlene Summers, and Sponsor, Dr. A. L. Bramlett. Sixty-Six Top row, left to right: V. Anderson, Baldwin, Bell, Biddle, Boiler, B. Boyle, Brew- ington, Brothers, V. Brown.

It offers to the students who study French great opportunities to use the language in a practical way. Those who have never studied a modern language have missed the great pleasure and enjoyment that come from speaking and reading — and even from thinking in another language. The Club meets at intervals for a time of recreation. In these meet- ings they feature programs consisting of songs, poems, plays, stories, games, and anecdotes. The business meetings and all the programs are conducted in French. Those students who patronize the dining hall have another privilege in eating at the French tables. The conversation during the meal is carried on in French and any exceptions are considered poor etiquette. At Christmas time the Club prepared a number of appropriate songs and presented them at a chapel service devoted to caroling in foreign lan- guages. The students enrolled in German, Latin, Greek, and Spanish organized for the occasion and vied with one another in serenading the remainder of the student body and faculty. The French Club has great possibilities within it. It hopes to continue as a service organization under the motto " Pas un mot d ' anglias. " Sixty-Seven Due to an unexpected accident we are unable to use a cut of the Art Club. How- ever we believe it is of sufficient importance to warrant a page. It is an organization to fill the vacancy in the withdrawal of the art offerings of the school. Biddle, Beulah Brubaker, Naomi Doolittle, Alice Judson, Reuben Kimbel, Joseph Leisure, Jeanette Lockridge, Crystal McNeil, Aline Rhine, James Smith, Stanley Vanderwort, Caroline The Art Club he Art Club is now an established institution at Taylor and even though Taylor does not have an Art Department this year, the need has been felt to continue the club. Goethe has said, " Art rests upon a kind of religious sense; it is deeply and ineradicably in earnest. Thus it is that art so willingly goes hand in hand with religion. " So the Club feels it is in sympathy with Taylor ' s ideals and standards. Though the Club is not large, there is a great interest among the members. The Club does not include only the old Art students and the fifty new ones planning to take up Art, but anyone interested in the subject. So every Tuesday evening finds them full of ideas and enthusiasm discussing their projects. There seems to be a wide field of activity. Some are interested in crafts, others in the industrial arts, and still others in oil painting, metal works, plaster of Paris modelling, and etching. Yet the chief aim of the Club is to be able to create the beautiful and to under- stand the principles underlying this creation, and, in some instances, to create the beautiful from the ugly; thus giving one the ability to enrich his surroundings.

School of Music £ hroughout many states Taylor University is known for her efficient School of Music and for the high standard of courses given under the direction of Professor Theodora Bothwell, instructor in piano and organ. Associated with her are the following instructors : Kenneth A. Wells, Voice ; George Fenstermacher, Violin and Theory ; Elizabeth Meloy, Public School Music; and Sadie L. Miller, Piano. The students in the School of Music are provided with a strictly modern Music Hall having up-to-date equipment, among which are many pleasant practice rooms and a beautiful Tellers-Kent organ. Unusual interest is manifested in the various features of the Music School, among which is an annual quartette contest, which has gained considerable recognition in other schools. The Choral Society and Men ' s Glee Club, under the direction of Professor Wells; the Orchestra, under the direction of Professor Fenstermacher; and the Women ' s Glee Club under the direction of Professor Meloy, are all vital components of the school organizations. Since the coming of Professor Bothwell, the weekly practice recitals have been of inestimable value. The Music School is not a silent department of the college, but is a division of which Taylor Uni- versity can well be proud. Seventy Furbay Music Graduates I aylor University ' s School of Music this year confers upon two of its students the degree of Bachelor of Music. Elizabeth D. Furbay receives her degree with an Organ major and a Piano minor. She showed her splendid technic on the organ in giving both a Junior and Senior recital including numbers by Bach, Haydn, Handel, Gluck, Widor and Karg-Elert. She traveled during the summer of 1931 as accompanist and coach for the Varsity Ladies ' Quartette. She is th e first graduate in the history of the school to receive a degree with an Organ major. Irene E. Reeder obtains her degree with a Piano major and an Organ minor, and has also completed the course given in Public School Music, having done her Practice Teaching in the schools of Hartford City, Indiana. She has proved her efficiency on the Piano by giving recitals in both her Junior and Senior years including numbers by Weber, Grieg, Chopin, Debussy, Phillipp, Schultz-Evler and Liszt. Miss Reeder won first place in the Skinner Piano Contest in 1929; the same year winning second place in the Rose Organ Contest. She has appeared in public pro- grams and has represented the School of Music in numerous programs in the State of Indiana. Seventy-One Olson, Birdsall, Furbay, McNeil, Atkinson Dennis, Titus, Buckner, MacKenzie Quartet Contest aylor ' s Music School sponsors each year a unique contest in which both Ladies ' and Men ' s vocal quartets compete. In order to encourage performance of the highest order, in 1926 Dr. John Paul offered a prize of twenty-five dollars to the best ladies ' quartet. Mr. T. H. Maytag sup- plemented this with an additional prize of the same amount for the winning men ' s quartet. Each year a competent judge selects the winners. This year the adjudicator was Mrs. M. M. Hodges, Supervisor of Music in the Public Schools of Marion, Indiana. The contest number for the women this year was " Adore and Be Still " by Gounod. The winners, first soprano, Elsa Olson; second soprano, Faith Birdsall; first alto, Aline McNeil; second alto, Marian Atkinson ; sang as their second number Schubert ' s " The Lord Is My Shepherd. " They were accompanied by Mrs. John Furbay. The contest piece sung by the me n was " Morning Hymn " by Henschel. The quartet composed of Robert Dennis, first tenor; Robert Titus, second tenor; Mason Buckner, baritone; and Fred MacKenzie, bass; took first place and sang as their second number " Glory, " by Cadman. They were accompanied by Miss Gladys Williamson. Seventy-Two Top right left to right: Abbey, Atkinson, V. Bailey, Baldwin, Bartrug, Bostic, Buckner Cookingham.

This group of select voices has worked one hour each week on some of the world ' s best choral literature, perfecting its technique for public appearances at cer- tain seasons of the year. The very important contribution which this group has made to the life of the school has been due in no small measure to the excellance of leadership. Miss Bothwell, at the organ, has made a valuable contribution as accompanist. The occasion of the first appearance of the Society this year was the Inaugural program, in which it sang Schubert ' s " Omnipotence. " " The Coming of the King " by Dudley Buck was the enriching Christmas offering. In the traditional Easter service the Society thrilled a fine audience with its presentation of Maunder ' s " Olivet to Calvary " on the afternoon of Good Friday. The group, in collaboration with the orchestra, pre- sented a group of equally famous choruses in the Spring Music Festival which was a brilliant piece of work for the first attempt. To signalize the Commencement season the Society chose to sing " The Triumph of David " by Buck on the afternoon of Baccalaurate Sunday.

The girls were all enthusiastic and worked hard to make it an organization of which the school would be proud. They succeeded and so this year with the same enthusiasm and a few new voices to take the place of those who had graduated the girls pressed on. They practiced not only for the profit and enjoyment they received from the ensemble singing but also for the pleasure they might give their audiences. More a capello singing has been the aim of the Glee Club this year. At various times throughout the school year the Glee Club has ap- peared on special week-day chapel programs, and also in Sunday chapel. Then, too, the members have gone to neighboring towns where they put on entertainments. The Girls ' Glee Club also had an opportunity to boost Taylor at the Methodist Conference held in Muncie. Of course, the crowning event of this year, as of every year, was the concert held in April. The program showed the exceptional training of the voices and also the other talent of the girls, for it was composed of instrumental solos, and skits as well as ensemble singing. Mrs. William McNeil is the indispensable accompanist of this organization.

This organization was under the capable direction of Professor Kenneth Wells. Several new members joined the club this year and entered into it with genuine enthusiasm. The club practiced in order that they might have a firmer ground in musical knowl- edge, that they might benefit from the ensemble singing, and that they might give programs which would be both educational and entertaining. The first appearance of the Glee Club was at a special program under the direction of the School of Music, celebrating Washington ' s birthday. The selections which the men sang during the Taylor banquet at the Meth- odist Conference held in Muncie, Indiana, showed the care with which they had been trained. The annual concert, which was given on April 19, cli- maxed the year ' s work. The program consisted of numbers from such composers as Schubert, Wagner, Palestrina, and Woodbury, as well as English and Scotch folk songs. After such a successful debut the Glee Club gave concerts and helped out on programs at school and in towns surrounding Upland. Miss Faith Birdsall was the efficient accompanist.

Band C his year the Band was pushed forward with such alacrity that within a few weeks practice a band of sufficient ability to play at the games was developed. It played snappy marches, overtures, and peppy school songs with a vim and vigor that displayed real school spirit. Feature stunts were put on with the band ' s aid and many a moment was enlivened by the gay melodies of this group. In the spring term a concert was given which was well received. It consisted of many delightful numbers rendered in a truly descriptive way. The features of the program were difficult classical numbers. The Band was expected to come back strong after being absent from Taylor ' s music field for a year. However, such a comeback was due in a large measure to the ability of Mr. Fred Reiter. Having studied directing under Professor Joseph Eliot of Cincinnati, under Professor Matty of the University of Michigan, and in the Metropolitan School of Music at India- napolis he was more than fitted to fill this position. He also proved to be an unending source of enthusiasm and pep. The Music Department and the band members feel very grateful to Mr. Reiter for so kindly giving of his time and ability.

The Taylor Orchestra has done much this year toward the development of music in Taylor by appearing in numerous chapel programs and a public concert. The beginning of the Washington Bi-Centennial celebration was commemorated here by a special chapel program in which the Orchestra played some well-known numbers by Hayden, who shares the two-hundredth year with the Father of His Country and whose works were popular at the time of Washington. The Orchestra also played for the processional and accompanied the Choral Society in the final session of the Inaugural Services. Professor Fenstermacher, whose baton has led the Orchestra for seven years, has done very good work in getting such fine results from a group of non-professional players. This year the reportoire has included music from the classical, romantic, and modern schools, giving a wide variety of experience. The overture to " William Tell " by Rossini, " Hun- garian Melodies " by Kelar Bela, and Mozart ' s G-Minor Symphony are typical of the material played during the year. The work has been ex- ceedingly interesting for the members and their productions have not been unappreciated. Seventy-Seven Features This year has been very gracious to Taylor University in granting her the unusual privilege of hearing Mario Cap- pelli, the world-famous tenor. This sec- ond Caruso came one morning to entertain and inspire a large audience in regular chapel. Not only did this famous tenor thrill with his wonderful voice, especially his ability to hold tones for long periods, but he also carried his audience away with his likeable personality. His complete knowledge of the background of every song added much to our ability to receive them in their fullest meaning. Of equal importance was the coming of the Welsh Imperial Singers. This " i-tem " stands out as a pinnacle for the musical year. These singers, led by the dynamic R. Festyn Davies, performed as one man and rendered the most difficult selections as a great organ under the touch of a master. Their program included a number of excellent solos as well as ensemble singing. In the face of these programs it is folly to say that Taylor does not have the contacts necessary to character building. We boast of hearing these who have appeared before kings and presidents. Welsh Imperial Singers Seventy-Eight debate and dramatics Williamson Yingling Women ' s Intercollegiate Debaters t his year all intercollegiate debaters were required to take a pre- requisite course in debating to acquaint them with the fundamental prin- ciples of argumentation. In this course practical experience was gained which made the debaters more efficient in their intercollegiate forensics. When work was started on the question of the Indiana Debating League, " Resolved: That the distinction between amateurs and profes- sionals be abolished in all intercollegiate athletic contests at which admis- sion is charged, " five new girls and one with previous experience formed the teams. The affirmative team was composed of Lois King, Gladys Williamson, and Ardath Kletzing; and the negative team of Mary Rice, Marjorie Yingling, and Elsa Olson. These teams were coached by Professor Pogue ' s assistant, Harry Griffiths, an experienced debater. Though this was Mr. Griffiths ' first year as coach, it is generally felt that his untiring efforts were well rewarded. For, although they were not always victorious, they showed the influence of their good training and their debating received favorable commendation. Due to the depression there was a lack of funds to carry out a heavy schedule. Nevertheless, the girls have not become discouraged and their experience will count much if circumstances permit a heavier schedule next year. Eighty Men ' s Intercollegiate Debaters I aylor ' s Intercollegiate Debaters have now completed one of the most successful seasons in the debate history of the school. With an advantage in the retention of several experienced men from last year ' s squad and an influx of several capable new members, they have made themselves one of the most formidable aggregations in this section of the state. The members worked very diligently on their cases and were amply rewarded by success. Along with this phase, they spent much time on delivery and, in all of their engagements, were complimented on that particular ability. However, the debaters must leave an abundant share of the spotlight to Harry Griffiths, who had charge of both the men ' s and women ' s teams. The question agreed upon for the past season was, " Resolved : That the United States Government should extend political recognition to the present Soviet Government of Russia. " It proved to be an interesting and timely subject with a wealth of material and sound argument for both the affirmative and negative teams. The schedule for the season was quite complete, including two clashes with Manchester, two with Valparaiso, and one each with Franklin, Rose Polytechnic Institute, John Caroll, Hanover, Goshen, and Marion.

According to the constitution which limits the mem- bership of the club to thirty-five active members, they admitted twelve new girls into their circle. The Soangetaha debating club has long been noted for its excellent training in parliamentary procedure and forensic activities. Formality prevails in all meetings and each member seeks to improve herself by taking an active part. Through the splendid work of the inter-club debaters, Irene Jester, Esther Masters, and Margaret Wolf, the club takes pride in retaining for the second consecutive year the much coveted Championship Banner. For this special service to the club, the debaters received the Swastika, the Soangetaha emblem in the colors, gold and blue. The Soangetahas believe in a well balanced program of social activities. Thus, they entertained the new girls in the autumn to an informal out-of-door reception in one of the many beautiful retreats of the maple woods near the campus. In the spring, the formal banquet, which will long be remembered by every Soangetaha and her guest, climaxed the year. And so, the Soangetaha Debating Club closed another chapter in its eventful history. Eighty-Two Top row, left to right: Atkinson, Bailey, Baldwin, Bell, Bennett, Biddle, Bissell, Bostic, Boyle.

Mnanka Debating Club C he year ' 31 and ' 32 finds the Mnanka Debating Club with thirty- seven active members. The year began its work when " The Weavers of Knowledge " gave a formal tea for the new girls at the home of Dr. Stuart. When the girls made their choice of clubs, the Mnankas found seventeen new members in their " web. " They were welcomed into the club by the very impressive candle service initiation. At the close of the meeting they were accepted into full membership by receiving the con- stitution of the Mnankas presented by Dr. B. W. Ayres, the club sponsor. The Mnankas believe in a well balanced program, combining intel- lectual and cultural activities. The procedure of the club meetings in- cludues such things as debates, parliamentary drill, and extemporaneous speeches. The annual debate with their sister club, the Soangetahas, was one of the best that has ever been held between the two clubs. The Mnankas, who were represented by Misses Scott, Gilbert, and Kleinefeld, upheld the negation, and although they did not succeed in wresting the Championship banner from the " Strong-hearted Maidens, " they proved that they were excellent debaters. The cultural activities of the club are maintained by the giving of several teas and other social affairs through- out the year. Eighty-Three Top row, left to right: P.

It was this noble purpose that in- spired her founders to organize on February 21, 1903. Many leaders of men, once paralyzed by the perils of platform performance, are now masters in oratory. Others, confusing their " emotions " with their " mo- tions, " now skillfully handle parliamentary procedure. Still others have become proficient in placing evaluation on opposing arguments of their peers. Many of these men had their first experience in our Club. Twice a year, debates with the Eulogonian Debating Club are held in addition to debates comprising part of our regular Club program. With hard work and loyal support we strive to win, however, when we are made to bow to our opponents, we are satisfied to know that the purpose of our Club is being realized. In all our activities, we try to keep before us our motto, " Mind, the Power of Man. " With such a program, we trust that in the future years she shall help to turn out men as she has in the past years, as illustrated by our own President, Robert Lee Stuart, a former Eurekan.

Eulogonian Debating Club I hroughout the years since the Eulogonian Debating Club was organized as the first club of its kind in Taylor, its ideals of helpfulness to its members have been maintained. This year the club has an active membership of fifty. A new plan for the encouragement of larger and more regular attendance was put into effect during the Spring term with gratifying results. A new interest and enthusiasm pervaded its members and made it hard to include everything in the weekly meetings which lasted no more than one hour. The aim of the Club is to develop a man ' s public speaking and debating abilities, as well as to give him training in correct parliamentary pro- cedure. To carry out such an aim necessitates varied programs, including prepared debates, extemporaneous and impromptu speeches, parliamentary drill, and talks by outside debating authorities. The two inter-club debates held each year furnish extra training for those selected to represent the Club. This year, in the Winter term, Messrs. Coldiron, Jacobs, and Kenyon and, in the Spring term, the Messrs. Phipps, Cook, and Coldiron represented the Eulogonian Debating Club in the forensic field. Eighty-Five Top row, left to right: P.

Speech Department C hough the Speech Department suffered a loss in personnel this year it continued to be one of the strongest in the school. The same cirriculum was offered to an enrollment of about twenty-five per cent, of _,. the total students in the university. The Alpha Sigma Phi interest of the ministerial students has greatly swelled the ranks but there is also a large group who are specializing. There are a number of students majoring in this field and are now eligioble for final recognition from the department. The pop- ularity of this department is due to the tech- nique of Professor Barton Reese Pogue, who insists on turning out " individually trained " pupils. Under the direction of Harry Griffiths, intercollegiate debate was carried on this year. Taylor University now offers her debaters the privilege of joining the honor- Bade Bissell Friel ary debate fraternity, Alpha Sigma Phi.

Dramatic Club he Taylor University Dramatic Club is composed of members of the Speech Department who definitely pledge themselves to take any part as requested in any productions of the club, those interested in characterization but also those interested in the technical phases of production. The years most outstanding accomplishment of the club was its portrayal of " Why the Chimes Rang. " As the annual goes to press the club is busily engaged in perfecting " Rip Van Winkle. " Miss Ardath Kletzing has been chosen to play the part of Dame Van Winkle. The interpretation of " Rip " has been allotted to Mr. Leroy Jones. We anticipate the pre- sentation at this writing. The dramatic enthusiasts have an organ- ization paralleling that of their debate friends in their honorary fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega. It has been in existence a num- ber of years and serves to increase interest in dramatics. The roster includes not only Alpha Psi Omega Bissell, Copper, L.

Christmas Eve The Vision " Why The Chimes Rang " I he spirit of Christmas was thrillingly heightened by the produc- tion of " Why the Chimes Rang, " under the direction of Barton Rees Pogue The story was of Holgar, a soulful youngster, who craved to see the presentation of gifts at the temple and possibly hear the chimes ring if a perfect gift was given. When the opportunity came to go with Steen and Bertrell, he refused because he wanted to care for an old lady who had sought shelter from the cold. The old lady soothed Holgar ' s aching heart and he fell asleep. Dreaming, he saw the presentation of gifts visioned on the wall of the room. Fearfully he placed his small coins in the hand of the visionary priest and the peal of the high chimes was heard.

The Young People ' s Gospel League is an organization of youth who possess or are seeking for full Salvation. The Holiness League of Taylor University, which is the local chapter of the Y. P. G. L., has had its uplifting influence on the campus this year. Many young people have been helped through this channel to come into the experience of Sancti- fication. Great has been our joy, and even greater must be the joy of our Savior, to see the many lives surrendered completely to the guiding hand of the Omnipotent One. The national organization continues to forge ahead in its endeavors and accomplishments. The annual convention, which was held at Marion College, was an inspiring success. The Taylor group was able to attend in large numbers and bring back to our campus some of the refreshing atmosphere which was characteristic of the convention. The convention key-note was a clarion call to a wider vision of the fields already white for the harvest, filling us with the ever deepening urge to give ourselves a living sacrifice in service fo r Jesus Christ. This convention was instru- mental in furthering the bond of fellowship between the Marion and Taylor chapters and inaugurating plans for exchange services occasionally during the year.

The clarion call of " Holiness unto the Lord " is still its watch- word and standard. How our hearts rejoice at the definite manifestations of God ' s presence. Who can forget the ringing testimonies, the hallowed singing, the fervent effectual prayers, the burning messages, and the silent but intense worship that was a part of those Friday night meetings in Society Hall. Memories of them will linger with us as the most hallowed hours in a most sacred spot and will serve to inspire us to greater efforts for the Kingdom in years to come. Truly God stimulated our spiritual hopes through the Holiness League. As He worked out His will in each service, He inspired those who were present by a promise of some higher blessing in the future meetings. Week after week the spiritual tide kept rising until evidences of old-time power were on every hand. A definite influence for Christian perfection has gone out from these meetings and Holiness League will continue to be a force for the spiritual deepening of the student life of Taylor as long as it symbolizes this highest of ideals.

The activities of the Student Volunteers have centered around Africa and one missionary, John Wengatz, who threw out a challenge to uphold Jesus in the foreign fields. This challenge was met and accepted by many. Two other missionaries from Africa stirred the student body making the vision more clear and crystallizing among the students the call to this land of promise. These were Mrs. J. Hal Smith from Sierra Leone, West Africa, and the Reverend C. F. Beitzel from the great Sudan country. India was represented this year by missionary G. B. Thompson, two Indian students from Purdue University, a missionary from the Methodist Board, and Gordon Herrmann, a Taylor student and the son of a mission- ary in India. Of major importance were the two conventions of the Student Volunteers. The national convention held at Buffalo, New York, was attended by two Taylor students; and the State Convention held at Indiana Central College, Indianapolis, at which Taylor had the largest representation, sent the delegates back with a new passion to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

First, through her gospel teams and individual workers, who have gone into the surrounding ch urches to assist the pastors through the Word and through song, through testimony and personal work with young people. Second, through the Communion Service held once a term for the entire school and community. Able ministers and laymen of the school conduct the services, putting forth every effort to make them not only beautiful, but inspirational and exceedingly helpful to everyone. The third contribution is cooperative in nature. The Association cooperated with the Volunteer Band, in sending a delegate to the State Volunteer Convention, held at Indiana Central College, Indianapolis, In- diana. The echo brought back deepened our interest in and broadened our vision of world need. Dr. Shute, our Sponsor, and Professor Greer, both gave their time to bring us timely and helpful messages on the prob- lems confronting young ministers. A Methodist discipline study was con- ducted for those wishing local preacher ' s license. Plans are now nuder way to make a bigger and a better Men ' s Ministerial Association.

The Prayer Band % hey heard those plain simple words of the Master, as they fell like music from His tender lips, and resolved to make them a part of themselves. This hopeful message of " Pray Ye " did not stop with them, but in its passage down the centuries has become the heritage of the Prayer Band at T. U. This band " is one of the mountain peaks of Tay- lor ' s spiritual life. " In this retreat comes the refreshing and strengthen- in of the Holy Spirit. The hour spent here every Tuesday evening is one when God draws nigh, and they " draw nigh to God. " The limit is not here, for it is an hour of wonderful and deepening fellowship — such an hour that causes growth in Christian character. Their scope is not personal, nor local, but it is one that ranges into the far places of the earth. Not only are they strengthened in their at- tempt to live lives winsome for Christ, but their influence is felt in India, China, and Arabia, for requests come from alumni and missionaries every- where, who believe in the motto of the band, " Prayer Changes Things. " And, best of all, the God of the Skies hears and answers in marvellous ways. Ninety-Five Chapel hese programs! What an important part they have played in the lives of Taylor students ! On Tuesday, September 30, Dr. Wengatz gave a very inspiring and educational talk on " Jungle Experiences, " in which he brought out as the paramount thought that one should do the best he can with the best that he has. On October 22, Dr. Furbay brought one of his interesting speeches on current events. He touched on nearly everything from Gandhi to marriage. The enthusiasm which was evidenced at the conclusion showed the students ' appreciation. Then on Thursday, October 8, Rev. Fox, who spends Thursday afternoons on the campus for consultations with stu- dents, spoke on the topic, " What is That in Thine Hand, " in which he im- parted many fundamental requirements of the Christian life. On the following day Miss Bothwell had complete charge of the chapel. She led in an inspiring hymn service the theme of which was, " Hymns in Dialogue Form " in which the students assisted. Mr. Clemens from India talked on " Why Ghandi is Great " on Monday, October 12. The Seniors were responsible for the fine program which was given on October 26. The features were a vocal number by Fred MacKenzie, an amusing reading by Margaret Wolf and a violin solo by Robert Eaker. Cleo Skelton brought the devotional message. On Wednesday, October 28, a very impressive memorial service was conducted by Doctor Stuart in commemoration of Mr. T. H. Maytag. The revival started on Friday, November 6. Dr. Wengatz fittingly began that glorious season by speak- ing on the theme, " Lord, Give Us a Revival. " On Tuesday, December 8, we were extremely favored in having the famous tenor singer, Mario Capelli, bring his message in song. On the following Thursday Dr. Leslie of Boston gave an interesting address entitled " Spiritual Growth. " When the new year was venturing on the third day of its existence, J. W. Pugh was the chapel speaker. His topic was " Jesus Today. " Mr. MacLaughlin had charge of the Vesper Service on Sunday, January 17. His subject was " Don ' t be a Ham, " which referred to the second son of Noah. On Thursday, February 10, Mrs. J. Hal Smith spoke on the intensely interest- ing subject, " Love Letters. " On the ensuing day the Sophomores had Charge. Lyle Case brought the message, Mason Buckner and Robert Titus sang and Paul Lewis favored with a trumpet solo. Professor Bramlett spoke on " The Arms Limitation Problem " on Thursday, February 25. A radio program through the National Broadcasting Company which fea- tured Walter Damrosch and his orchestra, graced the chapel hour on the succeeding day. On April 1st the students were happily fooled to find no chapel in store for them. But on the next Thursday they enjoyed a " double- header " in which Dr. Buvard and Clarence True Wilson spoke. Mr. Bu- vard, Secretary of the Methodist Board of Education delivered a very im- pressive message and Clarence True Wilson gave an earnest address bear- ing on the success of the Eighteenth Amendment. On the following day Bishop Fisher, lately from India and now preaching at the University of Michigan Chapel, spoke very forcefully on Ghandi and India. Ninety-Six BANQUET Committee: Standing, Copper, Kleinefeld. Sitting, Hedley, King, Fox, Sehlafman. Junior-Senior Banquet I he most formal and outstanding- social event of the school year, was the banquet given by the Junior Class in honor of the Class of 1932. The scene was laid in the Crystal Room of the Hotel LaFontaine at Hunt- ington, Indiana. A blue and gold color motif was carried out in the table decorations of yellow tea roses and yellow tapers in blue holders. Individ- ual programs engraved with the University seal and the guest ' s name were given as souveniers. A five course dinner was served. Music was furn- ished throughout by the Lyric Trio of Marion, Indiana, and their guest artist, Miss Jeanette Sprinkle, soloist. Mr. Harry Griffiths ably served as toastmaster for the occasion. The toast to the seniors, proposed by Mr. Fred Vosburg, president of the Junior Class, was responded to by Mr. Cleo Skelton, the Senior president. Short after dinner speeches were given by Professors Bush and Greer, class sponsors, and by Dr. Stuart and Dr. Furbay. Credit for the success of the banquet is due to Miss Grace Hedley, general chairman of the committee, and to her co-woi-kers, Miss Louise Fox, Miss Margery Kleinefeld, Miss Lois King, Mr. Edwin Copper, and Mr. George Schlaffmann.

One Hundred Eight ss fo Howard, President Wolf, Secretary Friel, Treasurer Cornwell, Supervisor Athletic Association %, aylor University does not participate in intercollegiate athletics, nevertheless, athletics play a real part in the life of the school and in the development of Taylor men and women. We encourage athletes to come to Taylor in order to get students, and not the reverse of the case which would be to encourage students to come in order to get athletes. If future years show as much progress at Taylor as the past year, Taylor will soon have a physical education program equal to any school of her size and class. The intramural and physical education program will satisfy the re- quirements of most colleges and universities. The new Maytag gymnasium with its eighty-four by fifty hard maple floor, the nine tennis courts, a base- ball diamond, a soccer field, and a cinder track are enough to keep most any athlete busy. President Stuart and the faculty have given much hearty support to the physical education program. With this support and an enthusiastic student body Taylor has had a great vear athleticallv and is planning for a still greater one in 1932-1933. A. H. CORNWELL. Editor ' s Note : The function of the athletic association has been large- ly assumed by Mr. Cornwell. The association retains the functions of ad- visory council and exchequer. At present there is a movement for a change of formatoin which will do away with the association as it now stands. Such plans are too embryonic for publication at this time.

Thalos 14 Philos L2 Thalos 6 Philos 4 TRACK Thalos 79 Philos 77 One Hundred Fourteen philo-thalo Thalo % hat famous, lovable old Scan- dinavian, Knute Rockne, once said that a team that won ' t be licked can ' t be. In reading that statement one might think that Notre Dame ' s old coach had sat in the bleachers of Maytag Gym on each of five nights last winter and had seen the Orange and Black beat back a per- sistant jinx as well as a determined Philo gang, and flash through to vic- tory. As the season progressed the squad was gradually cut down by in- jury and ineligibility until in the final game not one of the original quintet even appeared in a uniform. Only a brilliant array of reserve power en- abled the Thalo players to satiate the victory lust of the society. Fate thrust out its boney hand the first time on the day of the first game and pulled Ralph Long, husky back- guard out of the series with a broken bone in his ankle. The lineup was re- vised and followed predications by tak- ing a 22-18 conquest to the dressing room after the game. The four-point advantage was all gained in the first half, both teams adding ten points in the last half. Howard, Stuart, and Hallberg split the scoring honors three ways with six points apiece. Art Howard, high scoring ace, was absent from his forward post in the opening tip-off of the second game, which was dropped in one overtime when both teams played hand- some basketball. Norton rescued the game momentarily in the closing sec- Davis Howard One Hundred Sixteen Thalo onds of the final quarter with a basket from far out to tie the score. The Thalos went two down in the overtime, but Bud Coldiron had a chance to tie the score again when he was fouled at the very close of the overtime. How- ever he missed one of the two free throws and victory abided with the op- position 18-17. Coldiron stood out with nine points. Chuck Stuart made about all the noise in the third game as the Thalos again jumped into a one game lead 16-15. Chuck scored four field goals and four fouls to total twelve. He got seven of these in a nice last half rally that over- came the 9-5 lead the Philos held at the intermission. The Thalos dropped back to parity with the opposition in the fourth fray by submitting to a 20-17 misfortune. Misfortune of another line also overtook them when Stuart was forced out of the game in the third quarter with a severe knee injury. The Thalos were always in arrears. Coldiron lead the scoring again with five markers. Victory rested with them in the final game, in which neither Stuart or Spaude played, largely because Johnson, new center, burst forth with seven points in the opening minutes of play. At half time the Orange and Black enjoyed a 14-4 lead, and they made their advan- tage last for a 16-13 decision and the championship. Johnson scored nine points, but Chuck Stuart led for the series with twenty-four in four games. Spaude Tyler Norton Stuart One Hundred Seventeen Philo wo wins in five battles is the statistical result of the season for the Philo men, who this year performed under the direction of Manager Wes Bush, and who presented in their lineup the season ' s leading individual point maker, Cleo Skelton. The Blue and White forward clicked with twelve field goals and four free tosses to total twenty-eight. The Philos started the season as de- cided underdogs, only to be raised to the position of favorites by the varied antics of the Thalo jinx before the sea- son was over. Despite the choice as favorites they were unable to down a crew of talented Thalo reserves in the fifth tilt and the Philo Cup passed out of the possession of its donors for the first time in five years. The first game followed the dope pretty closely as Philos were tumbled 22-18. However this score was closer than the bleacher experts had predicted, and the showing of the team gave the faltering hopes of the Philos new im- petus. Skelton appropriated 8 points to lead his mates on offense. On the night of the second game, the gym was no place for anyone with a feeble heart, as the Philos finally wrap- ped up an 18-17 overtime victory which could have gone to either team a dozen times with but very little change of set- ting. The Philos lagged behind during the first portion of the festivities, fol- lowing 7 to 3 at half time. After Skel- Bush Gates Fritts Griswold One Hundred Eighteen Philo ton was forced out on personals, Mus- selman engineered a nifty rally that put the Philos ahead by two points. With seconds to go Norton, Thalo, blotted out this lead with a two pointer from mid- court. Little Milt Persons sunk a pair of penalty tosses in the overtime to win. Musselman and Skelton each tallied five times. The Philos folded up in the third ses- sion after scoring freely enough in the first two periods to annex a 9-5 lead at the intermission. Their offense didn ' t stick and neither did their defense, at least as far as Stuart, center of the op- position, was concerned, and so they dr opped the game by the smallest pos- sible margin, 16-15. Skelton again scored high with six. In the fourth dispute they succeeded in smirching the Orange and Black with defeat for the second and last time. The count was 20-17. During the first half the Philos twice succeeded in pull- ing ahead, but both times the Thalos drew abreast and the score was knotted a tll-11 at the beginning of the second half. However the Philos soon led again and never again did they relinquish that lead. Skelton was high point man, but Gates and Weaver also starred. " Cap " Musselman rang up five points to lead the scoring in the final conflict. The team played indifferent basketball, with the exception of a flurry just before the gun, and the game went to the adversary, 16-13. Illk Persons One Hundred Nineteen Th alo his team furnished about all the goods necessary for a potential title-holder. When the season opened they were heavy favorites, and, after the first game had resulted in a thorough spanking administered to the opposing Philo gang, there were few who be- lieved they would be beaten. The fol- lowing games subscribed to the truth of this position when they won two more victories to polish off the Philos in three sessions. Irene Witner was transformed from a guard into a center, and led the team ' s offensive with 44 points, an average of 14.67 points per game. Her best effort was 21, the total amassed in the opening encounter. Helen Gilmore, last year ' s freshman ace, was Miss Witner ' s chief assistant, tumbling in 29 markers. On defense the play of elongated Florence Drake was noteworthy, while the floor work of Hazel Simons, both at guard and at forward was beautiful to behold. The first game was featured from a Thalo standpoint by two things : The ease with which they pulled away during the second half to compile the final 29- 15 score and the remarkable individual work of Irene Witner. The first quarter saw the Thalos trail throughout as their defense was upset by the Philo long shots. When the gun barked the score was 7-6. However, the guards warmed to their task in the next two periods and during that time they permitted no field goals to be counted at their expense. B. Boyle F. Boyle Drake Gilmore One Hundred Twenty Thalo They limited the Philo scoring to a duet of free throws, and controlled the ball most of the time. Meanwhile Witner ran riot in the scoring zone to perform most of her evening ' s labors, which finally added 21 points to the Thalo side of the ledger. At the conclusion of the third period they rested easily in the lap of a 22-9 advantage. The Philos rallied in the fourth quarter as Yingling produced four points and Brothers two. Simons, Witner, and Gilmore protected the Thalo lead by scoring in this quarter. The second game was largely a repi- tition of the first, only more so. The Thalos started fast, kept going fast and finished fast to administer a terrific 28-12 trouncing to the Philo cohorts. Helen Gilmore came to life in this game, and shone as brightly as of old. She accounted for fifteen Orange and Black points, doing most of her heavy work in the first half. She was ably seconded by Witner, who wrote eleven behind her name in the score book. If ball games were lost in the first half the Thalos would have absorbed a trimming on the third week-end of the struggle. They were astern 8-6 at the half and did not rally to take the lead until late in the third quarter. When once Witner and Gilmore did begin to operate on a business basis they did it in a big way, and in the end they pro- moted a 20-13 victory. Witner chalked up twelve points and Gilmore eight. V. Stuart Simons Witner Turbeville One Hundred Twenty-One Philo n the girl ' s basketball series the " Lovers of Truth " met with some hard, cold facts that were somewhat hard to embrace. " We speak with refer- ence to the fact that at the conclusion of the final game they were faced with the proposition that in three efforts they had failed every time to scatter the dust of defeat upon the opposition. In fact so far did they come from it that they never had a good opportunity except in the first half of the last game. The team had some good players, but taken together it had some weak spots which it was impossible to conceal. Then, too, in general the players were unable to match the opponent in height and weight, inabilities which counted heavily against them. They also lacked the stamina which comes from greater size, and in two games they grabbed a lead only to lose it when the going got tough in the closing moments of the scrap. Marjorie Yingling hung up twenty- one points to lead her team ' s offensive, while Marg Wolf stood out at all times at her guard position. She was the biggest factor in Helen Gilmore ' s fall from the scoring pinnacle this winter. " Cap " Musselman coached the team. The first game revealed one phase of the series in which the Philos stood un- challenged. That was in beauty of uni- form. Their new white suits were cer- tainly handsome. However, pretty suits don ' t win ball games, and the Philos Brothers Crippen Friel Geiser One Hundred Twenty-Two Philo dropped the first frolic 29-15. They basked in the sunshine of a 7-6 lead at the end of quarter number one, but thereafter they absorbed a fearful amount of punishment. During the sec- ond and third periods they scored but two points,- and failed to hold Irene Witner, Thalo center, in anything re- sembling submission. The third canto ended 22-9 for the Thalos. The " Ladies in White " came back to achieve a vir- tual tie in points scored during the fourth quarter. They lacked but one of equalling the Thalos seven. Marj Ying- ling played nice ball, and collected twelve points. The Philos looked even more futile in the next game, and they imbibed a 28- 12 drubbing at the Thalonian hands. They fought with all they had, but it wasn ' t enough. Besides they surely missed the services of Marg Wolf who was able to play but little of the game. The play of Mae Brothers was a bright spot in a rather drab background for the Philo fans. She netted seven points. In the last fray the team maintained a lead until the late third quarter when the guards tired of the stiff pace and permitted the Thalos a flock of shots. The team turned in a commendable per- formance throughout, and made a real scrap out of it. Tooley and Wolf played sensationally at guard position, while Brothers five points gave her the scor- ing lead, though Yingling and Crippen got only one less apiece.

Brunner Scharer Bishop One Hundred Twenty-Five Track If anyone should ever try to find the closest and more viciously fought track meet in Taylor ' s history, they would not have to look farther back than the Spring of 1931. When, upon that mem- orable May day, the sun had turned the zenith the Orange and Black reigned supreme, though it could be lifted but little above the Philo Blue and White as it triumphed by the very slim margin of two points, 79-77. The outcome of the meet was doubtful throughout the latter half, after the Thalos overtook the long Philo lead gained in the opening events. At the conclusion of the individual events the count was 77-74 for the Philos, with only the medley relay coming up. It was here that Bud Coldiron topped off a forenoon of magnificent work. The two 220 ' s and the 440 of the relay gave the Philos a comfortable lead, but then Bud stepped out in a beautiful half-mile to beat Virgil Brown by an eyelash, and win for the Thalos. The meet started out as though it would be a romp for the Philos. They took down the blue ribbon in the first five events and at one time they had a lead of 38-6. In the track events, with the exception of the hurdles, both won by Stuart, and the quarter mile, in which Bud Coldiron was the victor, the Philos were not even closely pressed. This was particularly true in the dis- tance runs where Virgil Brown earned Norton Kjolseth Drake Mile-run One Hundred Twenty-Six Track three blue ribbons. Weaver of the Blue arid White also eked out a majority of the points in both dashes. However, when we transfer the scene to the field events we see why the Thalos are possessors of the Bush Trophy. Chick Scharer had to break the record of 129 feet to win the javelin and Lyle Thomas forced a tie with Chilson in the high jump to do about all that was clone for the Philos in these events. The Thalos gained many points from second and third places here, which eventually gave them the meet. Stuart and Smith took first and second places in both the running broad jump and hop, step, and jump. The Black and Orange swept the shot put, with Brunner chalking up the longest heave. The Philos picked up second place points in the pole vault and discus as these events were won by Coldiron and Norton (Thalos). The meet produced a few very pretty duels, which deserve special mention. Lyle Thomas and Chilson staged one of these in the running-high jump, but neither could negotiate five feet two inches and they were forced to spit the blue ribbon. Bud Coldiron also fur- nished a thrill in the 220 by finishing only a breath behind Griswold. One item of interest must be noted be- fore the meet is forgotten. " Al " Kleine- feld called Dean Saucier a " cockroach " to their mutual embarrassment. Stuart Thomas Brunner Coldiron One Hundred Twenty-Seven Philo J he beginning of training found the Blue and White looking like a cinch for the cup, but they were a distinct dis- appointment to their followers. The Thalos rose to unexpected heights, and only in the second game did the Philo machine click as it had been expected to do. For the first time in four years dusky Mike Palacio was missing from the batting order, and the team missed the steadying influence of the veteran more than they knew. The attack was fairly satisfactory in the first game as twelve assorted hits were registered but the defense was hardly worthy of the name. Scharer ' s support was very poor, his pitching de- serving a better fate as he fanned eleven. Many of the fifteen hits he al- lowed were blows which ordinarily would have been turned into putouts. The second game resulted in a very pleasing 6-1 triumph as Scharer pitched four-hit ball. The fielding in this fray was snappy as Skelton and Tommy Thomas turned in particularly good per- formances at third and short. Tommy also led in the hitting phase with two hits in four times up. Scharer hung up seven strike-outs, while issuing but four passes. No two of the hits he allowed came in the same inning. The last game produced some more mediocre pitching and uncertain field- ing. After a vicious first-inning storm of five runs the offense was also exceed- ingly quiet. Not a Philo crossed the pan after the fourth inning and the game went to the Thalos by a 14-8 score. Tommy Thomas averaged .455 with the willow, and co-starred with Skelton afield. Thomas, Skelton, Scharer, and Griswold were awarded letters. Thomas Griffiths One Hundred Twenty-Eight Thalo I hat fickle queen, Victory, again crowned with success the efforts of the Thalo baseball players as they won two out of three games in a series oft de- layed and finally abbreviated by rain and cold. The first game brought a 16-10 victory in a game featured by fairly heavy hit- ting and very erratic fielding on the part of both teams. Spaude started in the box and was given very ragged support. However, every member of the team got at least one hit, as Si Hammer led the slugging with a double and a single. A five run attack on Chick Scharer, op- posing pitcher, in the seventh stanza put the game in the cooler. The second game was more or less of a nightmare as far as attack was con- cerned. With the exception of the clean-up man, Norton, they waved their maces in vain at the Philo pitching. They got but four hits, and the afore men- tioned Norton got two of them, both doubles. They got their lone run in the third without the aid of a hit. The lineup was shifted for the final game to send Norton to the mound. After a disastrous first inning, in which five runs seeped over for the opposition, he pitched well, allowing but five safe- ties in the last eight frames. He also led the offensive with three singles in five trips to the plate. The Thalo at- tack was concentrated in the fifth and sixth inning as five runs were scored in each. Ray Norton led the team in hitting with an even .500, and Art Howard was the backbone of the defense, contribut- ing some very classy outfielding, par- ticularly in the second game. Tyler, Norton, Hammer, Howard and Snell won letters. Norton Schlafman Derk Shell One Hundred Twenty-Niilg Thalo Tennis %, he era of Thalo tennis suprem- acy was not terminated last spring be- cause it has extended over so many years that " the mind of man runneth not to the contrary. " In fact a Thalo tennis victory seems to be coming sort of a Taylor tradition. This new chapter of tennis history included but one loss in the four matches that were played. Gil Spaude bore the brunt of the attack as he has always done, but he was ably seconded by the play of Art Howard, and of Gilmore and Erhich among the girls. It should be noted at this point that the hand of the tennis goddess seems to point to additional victories in the future since two of the four veter- ans were only Freshmen last year. Spaude slashed his way to victory in the initial match as he covered the court like paint covers a barn. Gil seems to have an uncanny ability to reach shots that look like placements, and he used that ability against Bourguard, his an- tagonist, to the fullest extent. While he was pushed hard he won handily in three sets. Ehrich ' s loss to Marg Wolf was not wholly unforseen, but the Thalo men re- deemed that setback by scalping Breen and Tennant with the sharp edge of a 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 count. Howard and Spaude never gave the Philos a chance with their singing drives and beautifully placed lobs. The last and, by the way, the closest, was the girls ' doubles in which Helen Gilmore and Helen Ehrich clinched the title. They took over the first set with ease, 6-2, but the next was a different story and they finally dropped it 5-7. They came back strong in the deciding set, however, to earn it at 6-2. Derby Spaude One Hundred Thirty Philo Tennis he depression depressed Fhilo tennis about as soon and about as far as it depressed anything last spring, and, while Lefty Bourguard and Marg Wolf- with a few willing assistants strove dili- gently to balance the books, there was still a large deficit when their figuring was done! In fact they were able to keep but one account, the girl ' s singles, out of the red of defeat. When the matches were over the Philos found themselves on the wrong end of the score three times, and victors once as before related. The fifth match was un- necessary for a decision and was not played. Alex Bourguard, the game little left- hander, took the court against the Thalo ace, Gil Spaude, in the first match. At the outset most people wouldn ' t have given Alex a half dozen games in the match, but he surprised everyone, in- cluding his tall opponent. He pushed Spaude all the way, and time after time baffled him with his twisting, low-bound- ing shots. He dueced the final set but Spaude pulled it out at 7-5 to win. Marg Wolf, the maid from Washing- ton, lost but four games in taking the measure of Helen Ehrich to even the match score. She triumphed 6-3, 6-1, and had control of the situation at all times. Her service was especially ef- fective and she utilized it nicely to hold her opponent at bay. The 6-2, 6-2, 6-1, score by which Breen and Tennant lost to Spaude and Howard speaks for itself, but Wolf and Kletzing staged an uprising in the girls ' doubles and almost stained the Thalo record with another defeat before they sub- sided and accepted defeat 6-2, 5-7, 6-3. Both girls played better tennis than they had been expected to display. Wolf and Kletzing Bourquard One Hundred Thirty-One Dennison Batting Brown Batting The Thalo Gang Annand Pitching The Philo Gang Girls ' Baseball he girls baseball series between Philo and Thalo is becoming an annual affair. Last spring the Thalo girls added this title to the one gleaned in basketball and thus pocketed all the girls ' championships. It must be admitted at the outset that this series is not staged for the purpose of demonstrating the scientific phases of the " national pastime. " Both games were close as they were decided by two runs, but especially in the first game, what are two among so many. The score of this " race " was 14-12, but even that wasn ' t as bad as the 27-19 count of the Old-New Girls ' game last fall. Nutting pitched and Derby caught both games for the victors, while Annand and Vandersoll worked for the losers. The game was featured by four-base clouts, Waite getting two, and Vandersoll one for the Philos, while " Skeet " Hauber propelled one for the Thalos. Willma Annand, burly Philo pitcher, got the only homer in the second fray, which the Thalos also won. This time the final reckon- ing was a more respectable 6-4. Letter winning Philos were Kletzing, Annand, Waite, and Florence Hazelton, while awards were made to Derby, Gilmore, Simons, Hauber and Drake of the Orange and Black.

Boy ' s Interclass Basketball I he yearlings gave the traditional dope bucket a resounding thump in the interclass series this year by tossing enough baskets to win three games and the championship. They utilized the Junior game to ring up their first victory, 23-11, and then on successive week-ends they accom- plished the downfall of the Seniors, 21-14, and the defending champs, the Sophs, by 24-19. They won, not by virtue of the work of an outstanding star, but by utilizing their unusual height to advantage and by developing smooth team play. They added a touch of color to the tourney by wear- ing brilliant collegiate pajamas as sweat suits. The Senior team looked worthy of its position as pre-tourney favorite in its opening encounter when it laid the Sophomore machine by the heels, 39-22, but it fell afoul of the championship aspirations of the Frosh in the next encounter. By losing this game it lost the championship, though it came back to whip the Juniors 22-10. The latter team managed to win once, beating the ill-fated Sophomores, 25-14. Art Hallberg was high scorer for the series with 26, but his total is not as impressive as Art Howard ' s 25, as he played in one more game than the latter. One Hundred Thirty-Four Gilmore, Walker, M. Pugh, Bennett, Simons, Brown, Hogan Girl ' s Interclass Basketball I he feminine portion of the Sophomore class added to the class fame by pursuing the girls interclass basketball championship valiantly through three games, emerging after a handsome tussle with the Senior women in the final game with the much-sought trophy folded securely in its arms. Helen Gilmore beseiged the basket from all angles with suc- cessful shots to pile up the remarkable total of 59 points for the three games. She led her team in every game. The first game was close all the way but the Sophs led most of the time and held the business end of a 20-17 score over the Frosh at the conclusion. Then they massacred the Juniors 30-3, and won the champion- ship from the Seniors in their final scrap 21-16. This last game was beau- tiful to see. The Sophs had a 19-5 lead at half-time, but could not cope with a determined Senior rally in the final quarter, and they barely man- aged to stay in front. The Seniors finished second with victories over the Juniors, 18-0, and the Freshmen 21-16. Irene Witner scored most consistently for them and followed Gilmore in individual scoring with 39 markers. The Frosh won one, trampling the Juniors 23-5. One Hundred Thirty-Five Interclass Track Meet May 2, 1931. Pole Vault— 1st. Griswold 2nd. Sparks 3rd. Titus Time: 10.4 seconds. 1 Mile Run — 1st.

Bourquard Senior Senior One Hundred Thirty-Six Track t he day was cold and the sky was gray last spring as the Interclass track men, and a few ardent spectators gathered at the Athletic Field for the first meet of the season. When the labors of the morning were con- cluded the Sophomores had garnered 53 points to win the meet, while the Seniors earned second place with 43 %. The Juniors and Frosh were vir- tually tied, the latter having an advantage of but 1% points, 27%-26. The Sophs won principally by virtue of the work of four men. " Ken " Griswold contributed 15 points with victories in the 100, 220 and 440 yard sprints. Don Hatfield added eleven more by winning the pole vault, and placing second in the hop, step, and jump, and in the standing broad- jump. While Harrison picked up eleven points in four events, Bush rounded out the quartet with eight precious points. Stuart, Sparks and Bourquard were the men instrumental in keeping the Seniors in the running, while Brown and Norton were point winners for the Juniors. Scharer and Kenyon did the heavy duty for the yearlings. Baseball %, he Interclass baseball competition last year was conducted in the form of an elimination tournament. The first round brought together a very wobbly Senior outfit and a Sophomore team of somewhat the same character. The four year men were pushed aside in this contest by the quaint score of 21-7. The other half of the first round brought victory to the Juniors over the Frosh to the tune of 11-5. The field was not in the best of shape for these early season games, and defensive blunders were frequent. The final game was refreshing to the patrons in that considerably more baseball was exhibited by the players. The Juniors staged a big six run celebration at the Sophomore expense in the fourth canto to gain the decision at the completion of hostilities. The final score was 8-5. Ray Norton made most of the noise for the Juniors by limiting the opposition to four hits, and making two safe smacks himself, one of them a double. Norton whiffed six batsmen, and never was in trouble except in the third inning when the Sophs scored all their runs. Mm Tennis P laying against the versatile Junior team seemed to be fraught with perils for any team with championship aspirations in the Interclass tennis scramble last spring. At least that was the way it appeared after they nailed the Sophs down in the semi-finals with the loss of but one match, and then swept through the Frosh forces in the finals to take the first three matches and victory. The Juniors won chiefly through the play of Gil Spaude and Marg Wolf. In the Sophomore match they paired together to win the mixed doubles, while Spaude beat Wally Fritts, and Miss Wolf overcame Angie Ockenga in the singles. The Juniors suffered their loss of the spring when Hedley and Ockenga upset Wolf and Friel in girls doubles. Breen and Howard put the Frosh in the finals when Gilmore and Hayden played about on a par with the Senior women, Derby and Ehrick. However the Frosh entry could not surmount the Junior barrier, and lost three straight. One Hundred Thirty-Seven Generally Speaking hree things made this year an outstanding one in Taylor athletics. The athletic history of the institution has been one of many vicissitudes, as it passed from year to year under the guidance of new people, but it is doubtful if any year ever saw it touch the lofty heights it reached this year. The first thing and without doubt the biggest thing that made for this advance was the coming to Taylor of Coach " Hersch " Cornwel l as Director of Athletics. The school has long felt the need of a man of ability and experience, both as a player, and as a coach, to direct the play of the Taylor student. Dr. Stuart brought " Hersch " to us in that role, and he has more than proved himself. He gained his player experience at Southwestern University, his coaching experience at Eldorado Junior College, and from the " school of life " he has gleaned much experience in the art of making Christian young men as well as athletes from the ma- terial given him. " Hersch " has some real plans for the future of Taylor athletics, and we feel justified in predicting that, although this year was a fine one, com- ing years will see yet greater achievements. To mention a few of his projects, the Coach perpetrated a commendable piece of work in the Gym when he got enough work out of the men of the school to finish the shower room, and performed a needed miracle on the baseball diamond and the track. The second thing that made this year ring the bell was the new system whereby letters were awarded for athletic merit. Previously there had been some agitation along this line, so last year the Athletic Association bent itself to the task of working out a practical scheme upon which to base these awards. They finally adopted the following plan. A letter committee of five faculty members was to be appointed. These men were to attend the games and after each series select a group of men (from both teams) to whom awards were to be made. Five men were chosen in basketball, two in tennis, and nine in baseball. The same number were chosen among the women. Track letters were given to record breakers and those scor- ing more than ten points. In the team games sportsmanship and team play were considered as well as individual performance. Minor letters were given for recognition in one sport, and major letters for recognition in two. The plan was not without its weaknesses, but the whole idea seems to be a material step in the right direction. The third feature of the year was the closeness and the generally high level of the competition. The Freshman class brought a real array of athletes who added their share to the tone of T. U. sport life. They didn ' t look so able in the Old-New Student game last fall when they perished 11-4, but they more than redeemed themselves in basketball, sweeping the series in three straight. The track meet was the closest in history and one can safely say the same for the men ' s intersociety basketball series. As this annual goes to press the track, baseball and tennis season for 1932 promises to be on a par of their own in excellence. The competition promises to be much more interesting and on a higher plain of sports- manship. The new system calls for the abolition of interclass baseball and the substitution of selected-team play. The girls are delighted by the rumor that they will be allowed to participate in an intersociety track meet this spring.

The Gem Blotter . his year marks the fourth successful run of the Gem Blotter as a medium for securing funds from advertising. It has now become such an established feature as to pull through this depression year in a very commendable fashion. The business men of its acquaintance have recog- nized it as a bright spot in the plague of publication advertising, which they term " charity, " and have responded for our mutual benefit. Having thus extended themselves to our interest, they have a right to our first consideration in buying. Indeed, our patronage is necessary to insure the future success of the Blotter. The 1932 Blotter, miniatured above, was made in four colors: buff, blue, pink and canary. They were placed on each student ' s desk three times during the year. Though serving efficiently in their primary function as a blotter, they have other functions of equal importance such as adding color to the room and listing merchants, basketball schedules, and school activities. Editor ' s Note: We are greatly indebted to Joseph Severn for the publication of the blotter. He had complete charge of it in all phases.

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA ENGRAVERS ILLUSTRATORS and ELECTROTYPERS One Hundred Foi ' tv Five «r Al : " Prof, how can the lady go into the cage with the tiger and not be eaten up? " Furbay : " Why — er — it ' s a man-eating tiger, I guess. " Irene Jester, attending the Episcopal Church for the first time, was surprised to see the people about her kneeling suddenly. She asked her mother why, and was told, " Hush, they are going to say their prayers. " " What, with all their clothes on? " said Irene. Drake: " How do you make a Maltese cross? " Boots: " I don ' t know. " Drake : " Pull its tail. " Boots (after much meditation) : " Well, I can ' t see much similarity between a Maltese cross and a pullet ' s tail. " Marge is always complaining that she has so little to wear — and last night at the Junior and Senior Banquet she seemed to be wearing it. A. D. 6000 Spiritualistic lady has just called up her husband, who is dead: Lady: " John, dear, is that you? " John : " Yes, dear. " Lady: " John, are you happy? " John : " Yes, dear. " Lady: " John, dear, are you happier than you were on earth with me? " John : " Yes, my dear. " Lady (sighing) : " Heaven must be a wonderful place. " John : " I ' m not there, Mary. " One good thing about the depression is that nobody now walks around with his nose in the air unless he has a stiff neck. One Hundred Forty-Six Really There is really more in a grapefruit than meets the eye. " Why do you wear rubber gloves when cutting hair? " asked Pogue. " For the purpose, " replied Christler, " of keeping our celebrated hair restorer from causing hair to grow on my hands. " He sold a bottle. " The country is going to the dogs, " said the farmer as he put up an- other hot dog stand. Mrs. Keith : " Art, do you like apples? " Art Hallberg: " I wouldn ' t eat an apple for the wo rld. " Mrs. Keith: " Why, how it that? " Art: " My mother died of appleplexy. " No wonder a wife becomes discontented when she knows she has to go to a beauty shop to be told that she has dreamy eyelashes, lovely hair and a wonderful complexion. Dr. Ayres gazed into his patient ' s eyes. " You say you have trouble with that eye? " he said. " But there ' s something more. On looking at it, I see signs of liver trouble, of anaemia, and I fear of chronic nervous af- fection. " " Look at the other eye, doctor, " said Buckner. " That is my glass eye. " Wouldn ' t it be wonderful if every person who says he has a kick com- ing would get it? One Hundred Forty-Seven This Gem A Product of -THE- Taylor University Press PRINTERS AND PUBLISHERS Owned and Operated by TAYLOR UNIVERSITY UPLAND, INDIANA FEBRUARY THOUGHTS So this is Leap Year. The virgins in Biblical days had an easy time compared to those today. They just forgot to fill their lamps and didn ' t have to pull some gag about the radio sounding better in the dark. Wonder if the weather man has guessed we sent him that mean, old comic valentine. A typical New Yorker is a person who thinks that if George Washington were to cross the Delaware today it would be to see the Indians on the other side. Abraham Lincoln used to tell the people funny stories in the hour of need. Modern politicians do the same thing but with straight face. Icicles hanging from the trees are a lot prettier than those hanging from the water pipes. Bade (on phone) : " Hello, darling, would you like to have dinner with me tonight? " Irene Tennant: " Why, I ' d love to, dear. " Bade: " Then tell your mother I ' ll be over at seven o ' clock. " Before criticizing wife ' s faults, remember that it may have been those very defects which prevented her from catching a better husband. One Hundred Forty-Eight The Unevangelized Tribes Mission 147 West School Lane, Germantown PHILADELPHIA, PA. Field: in the Kasai-Kuilu-Kwango district The Belgian Congo south into Angola. EVANGELICAL— (Jude 3); COOPERATIVE— (Romans 15:20-21) An undenominational Faith Mission depending wholly upoi God ' s promises and faithfulness for the supply of material and spiritual needs and based upon a SCRIPTURAL program which God is honoring and blessing. Building on no other man ' s foundation, it evangelizes only tribes not occupied by other Missions, laboring with hearty good-will toward every other true missionary effort. ON KEEPING ALIVE Nothing goes further toward explaining man ' s tenacity in living than his unreasonable expectations. Tomorrow I ' ll know this, I ' ll learn that; tomorrow this other thing will happen. In the face of the accumulated experience of a thousand generations, he has to deny, to disbelieve, and for his disbelief to substitute belief — belief that his lot will be different. Rob him of his childish blazon, " I am unique! " and he must die. Give him the years, the knowledge or the cynicism to abandon that slogan and he is wise enough to know he is already dead. — George Agnew Chamberlin. Frank : " Honestly, now, do you women like egotistical men as well as the other kind? " Alice: " What other kind? " Doctor: " Did you follow my advice and drink hot water one hour before breakfast ? " L. Thomas: " I did my best, but I couldn ' t keep it up for more than ten minutes, doctor. " One Hundred Forty-Nine Wells: " What ' s that under the back of your shirt? " Furbay: " Dynamite. I ' m waiting for Dr. Stuart. Every time he meets me he slaps me on the back and nearly kills me. Next time he does it, he ' ll blow his hand off. " Ardath: " Do you have many scraps with your wife? " Pogue: " Almost every night at supper — whatever is left over from dinner, you know. " Willie, watering the flowers, Turned the hose on pa for hours. Ma yelled, " Stop, my son, because Insurance has no drowning clause. " The reason Lincoln was such a big success was because he split tough logs instead of rolling political ones. Franklin : " Dad, you are a lucky man. " His Dad: " How ' s that, son? " Franklin : " You won ' t have to buy me any school books this year, been left in the same class. " I ' ve Little Mary, age five, driving with her father through the country for the first time, saw some cat-tails growing along the road. " Oh, Daddy, " she cried, " look at the hot-dog garden. " People who say the sky ' s the limit shouldn ' t complain if they don ' t always have a roof over their heads. One Hundred Fifty Titus: " What is the difference between a pedestrian and a centen- arian? " Buckner: " About 75 years. " Mrs. Oliver Drake: " Oliver, Ah jes ' seen a alligator eatin ' our young- es ' chile! " Oliver: " Umm-uh! Sho ' nuff? You know, Ah thought sump ' n been gettin ' our chillun! " Our lives are interwoven With camouflage and bluff- We talk about Beethoven And play the jazzy stuff. Miss Cline (sternly) : " This essay on ' Our Dog ' is word for word like your brother ' s essay. " Stan : " Yes, it ' s the same dog. " The animal-cracker factory in our neighborhood blew up, and it rained cats and dogs for hours. " Look, papa, Ikey ' s cold is all better yet, and we still got left a box of cough drops. " " Oi, vot extravagance. Tell Abie to go out and get his feet wet. " Dreams never come true except for people who are wide awake. One Hundred Fifty-One STANDARD NUT MARGARINE Boost Taylor University tfetfei STANDARD NUT MARGARINE CO. INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA WHAT WE NEED " The man from Mars, " writes a certain investigator, " came to the Earth to discover the things most needed by the human race.

Milt Persons: " Are you gonna way this Summer? " Stu Weston : " Why should I? I know my weight. " " Boiled down to the bottom of the pot, a moron is anybody who doesn ' t agree with you. " — Dr. Bisch. One Hundred Fifty-Two If you want to have the satisfaction of knowing that all of your plumbing and heating material you install in your home or business place is strictly first class, insist on your contractor buying them from THE TREATY CO. GREENVILLE, OHIO " A man, like a watch, is known by his works, " observed the epigram maker. " And by the hours he keeps, " added the wife. " And by the spring in him, " said the athlete. " And by his being fast sometimes, " remarked the reformer. " And by the way his hands go up, " put in the pugilist. " And by his not always going when we want him to, " said the girl who ' d been robbed of her sleep. " And by the case he has and way he is run down, " remarked the doctor. Mrs. Jones : " What did Caesar exclaim when Brutus stabbed him? " Stan Boughton : " Ouch. " " Yes, " said Dr. Bramlett to his History 10 class one balmy, Spring afternoon, " it isn ' t the heat, it ' s the stupidity. " In the good old days the youngsters used to get tanned without going to the sea-shore. One Hundred Fifty-Three Pete: " They caught him at home. " Pelley: " I thought you said he was out. " Pete: " I did. " Pelley: " Well, how can he be at home if he is out? " Some Depression! A wearing concern startled Chicago by putting this ad in the papers recently: " Bullet Holes Rewoven Perfectly in Damaged Clothes — Lowest Prices! " Maybe the reason some of us long for the good old days is because we remember that even an old-fashioned peanut roaster was happy enough to whistle at its work. Prof. Greer : " Poets are born and not made. " Louise Fox : " Huh, it ' s a mean trick to blame it on their parents. " The percolator fell over and strained its coffee. Mr. Furbay : " So you ' re going to spend the rest of the afternoon in a steamer chair? " Mrs. Furbay : " Why, yes, if nothing else comes up. " Even if she is a striking brunette, make sure she isn ' t light-headed before you marry her. One Hundred Fifty-Four Amos ' n ' Andy have a " propolition " as follows: Andy to start work on Monday at $3 for the first day and five cents less than an increase of 12% daily thereafter, plus, after the first two days, 50% of the amount saved (gain or loss) the preceding day. As an added inducement to work and save, Andy ' s wages are revised at the end of each week as fol- lows: Five times the amount saved (loss or gain) during the last five days of the week finished, are added to Saturday ' s wage to furnish a new rate for computing Monday ' s wage. Andy spends daily five cents more than 110 per cent of the preceding day ' s wage, minus after the first two days, 50 per cent of the amount saved (gain or loss) on the preceding day. Compute Andy ' s earnings and expenses and to last until his total ex- penses equal his total earnings. How many days does Andy work? Ty: " How did the professor make his millions? " Fred : " He put fenders on grapefruit spoons. " Boyle: " How ' d you get that puncture? " Simons : " Ran over a chicken with pin-feathers. " People who peer carefully into their oyster stew aren ' t necessarily looking for a pearl. Maybe it ' s an oyster. Just because your brain is in the upper story don ' t use it as an attic to store useless things. Teacher: " Sammy, what is it you can look at after you wash your face to see if it is clean? " Sammy : " The towel. " One Hundred Fifty-Five In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thy paths. A. G. Kruschwitz 0. A. Kleinefeld Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Sears YTu Aj £. Qad M Fritts: " Did you ever wonder why a woman can ' t raise a mustache? " Shields: " Did you ever see grass growing on a busy street? " Garden Hint: The easiest way to tell the difference between young plants and weeds is to pull up everything. If they come up again they are weeds. Beaming hostess, to three men telling stories in a corner : " Why, you poor dears, you ' re being neglected. " " Thinking of me, dearest? " " Was I laughing? I ' m sorry. " All nations say " Never again! " after a war, but so does an old soak after every spree. One Hundred Fifty-Six m, htJT Rev. and Mrs. H. Blake Masters % o. fyttfec 5U C?fy s£Z r T !L Qj£j tar Skelton : " If you ' ve spotted the man who stole your car, why don ' t you get it back? " Snell : " I ' m waiting for him to put on a new set of tires. " In summer some women are lucky enough to board a boat while others have to board a relative. A colored preacher in south Georgia recently, in trying to describe the infernal place to his congregation, clinched his argument with, " Brud- ders, it aom so hot down dere dat hot melted lead tastes just like ice cream ! " Beggar (at door) : " Lady, I lost my right leg. " Mrs. Allee : " Well, it isn ' t here. " If wealth is a disease, we must have been vaccinated. One Hundred Fifty-Seven Vosburg: " My wife ranks me with the famous men of the world. " Ty: " How ' s that? " Fred : " Everytime the fire gets low, she yells, ' Frederick, the grate. " Miss Cline : " Parse the word ' kiss ' . " Ruth J. : " This word is a noun, but is usually used as a conjunction. It is never declined, and more common than proper. It is not very singular, in that it is usually used in the plural. It agrees with me. " Our idea of rigid economy is a dead Scotchman. Mable Kreie : " How is a trombone like a ball game? " Bud Boyle: " You have to slide to base. " Most people know how to catch on. Only the really smart ones know when to let go. Keith: " Prof., why do elephants have such big trunks? " Prof. : " Well, they have to come all the way from India. " Doctor : " Congratulations, my boy ! " MacKenzie: " But you just said that I flunked out of medical school. " Doctor : " Ah, but think of the lives that you have saved. " It ' s a fact, the only two who can live as cheaply as one are a flea and a dog. " One Hundred Fifty-Eight Louise: " J-i-m-m-i-e ! ! why the flowers? " Jimmie (after a thirty minute wait) : " Why for crying out loud, I thought you were dead. " Bob : " Esther is like an angel. " Harrison: " How ' s that? " Bob : " She ' s always up in the air; she ' s always harping; and she never has an earthly thing to wear. " And there is the Scotchman who went nutty running around the block because they told him Prosperity was just around the corner. Mrs. Jones : " Wake up ! There are burglars in the house. " Mr. Jones: " Well, what of it? Let them find out their mistake them- selves. " He who laughs last laughs best but he soon gets a reputation for being dumb. on DeWitt Fowler: " How do the Freshmen keep those dinky little caps James Rhine : " Vacuum pressure. " Turby ' s Mother: " You know, Margaret is nearly seventeen-years-old, so today I had a frank discussion with her about the facts of life. " Dr. Turbeville: " Ah! Did you learn anything new? " One Hundred Fifty-Nine six, cJ (XAjJuyL . Allee : " Waiter, will you put a sample of this gravy in a small bottle for me? " Waiter: " What for, sir? " Allee : " I want to get a vest to match it. " We of the Gem Staff have been as busy this year publishing this as the Republicans have been praying for good times before November. " Signs of returning prosperity lie about us everywhere, " began the chapel speaker. " Yes, " hollered a student, " and lie and lie and lie. " Well-dressed man, cigar in hand, is falling through the air from an airplane : " Cockroach ! That wasn ' t the washroom after all. " The Protestant clergy have their better halves, but the Catholic clergy have their better quarters. One Hundred Sixty Rev. W. F. Baldwin Emma M. Davis Mr. and Mrs. Spaude Ward Willis Long F. S. Williamson Mrs. William McClelland Mrs. M. D. Boyle Edgar L. Lewis Spaude: " Mother, can ' t the cook put up my lunch instead of you do- ing it? " Mother : " It ' s no trouble, dear. " Spaude: " I know, but cook ' s got a better appetite than you. " " I wouldn ' t mind my wife having the last word, " says Mr. Peck, " if she wasn ' t so confounded long in getting to it. " " I ' m afraid this bed is not long enough for you, " said the host to Copper. " Never mind. I ' ll add two more feet to it when I get in. " An old-timer is a person who can remember when he was in line for a raise in salary. One Hundred Sixty-One Advertising in the Hiawatha Agency Hear the legend of the Hunter, of the feats of Instant Postum; He who lived in Minnesota, ere accountant, banker, merchant, Yet he learned the ways of commerce. In the Prophylactic forest On the shores of Coca Cola dwelt the Moxies in their wigwams: Old Sapolio, the grizzled prophet, and the warriors young and eager. In the lodge of the old Chief tan with Uneeda, more than mother, And Victrola old and feeble, lived the warmest of the maidens: Musterole, Sapolio ' s daughter, Musterole, the Sun-Kist Chiclet. All the young men sought her favor, left their troubles at her wigwam, Brought her Thermos skins for raiment, brought her Tarvia for ointment. And sweet Musterole smiled upon them, smiled on Vaseline and Pointex, Smiled on Listerine and Valspar, smiled but left them unrequited, For her love she gave to no one. From the hills of the Ex-Lax Came the young Chief Instant Postum, mightiest hunter in the forest. All superb in strength and beauty he it was who trapped the Kodak He who shot the great Sears-Roebuck. Eversharp — his hatchet, Every Arrow Head a Hotpoint. On him gazed the Moxie maidens, Nujol poured her glowing glances, bold Carbona sought to win him, Topkins bro ' t him cakes and honey, but for Musterole yearned Postum, No Pyrene could quench the Arbor that she kindled in his bosom. Through the Shreaded Wheat they wandered to the White Rock by the River By the rippling Cuticura. There beneath the Palm Olive shadows From the boughs they picked the Grape-Nut. There they saw the sun descending, Naught cared Postum for the winds blowing through the Holeproof forests Musterole was there beside him. To his bosom then he drew her Held her to his manly bosom, whispered words with love aburning Told her how he ' d caught the Sealpax, told her how he ' d slain Bull Durham Told her how he ' d stripped Ampico. Boasted of his Father ' s tepee With its sides of Mentholatum and its wings of sweet Socony. To him Musterole aquiver listened, and her heart gave answer All the warmth of love she gave him, gave him Rubberset affection Gave her heart to Instant Postum. Thus he woo ' d and thus he won her. LITTLE BENNY By Lee Pape The hart was the ferst pump ever invented. It never stops beeting as long as we ' re lucky. It pumps the blud through vanes and arteries, depending on weather its coming or going. If you axsidently cut one of your blud vessels and know a lot about fizzeology you can tell rite away weather its a vane or a artery, thus sattisfying your curiosity even if it don ' t make you any less nerviss. Ef you are not quite sure how you feel, all a doctor has to do is lissen to your hart to help you find out. If he tries to lissen on your rite side he ' s probably not a good doctor. We are burn with 2 lungs and if we have any less its dangerous and if we have many less its impossible. They helpusto breethe all day and at nite they breethe for us. If it wasent for the lungs the air wouldent have any place special to go and our whole sistem would be full of drafts. The stummick receeves all your food but it proberly dont injoy it as much as you do. All you haff to do is chew your food and swallow it, but your stummick has all the werk of digesting it and all the trubble of getting sick from it in case you send down some of the wrong things. This proves the rite one dont always take the blame. The liver is a important part of the body wich we hardly ever think about till we get older. Between your neck and your legs you are known as your trunk, probably because allmost all the rest of you is packed there. The nect separates our head from our shoulders and helps us to look sideways in a hurry. It is one of the last things we learn to wash of our own free will. Exter long necks are more graceful in swans than what theyare in human beans. The legs are what distinwish short peeple from tall ones, so even if we are all born equal, later on in life we are more equal sitting than standing. The ribs keepus from being too loose. Many peeple are ticklish be- tween them, but it is not considered good manners to try to find out unless you are pritty good f rends.

This year there were 23 states and three foreign countries represented on the campus. A few of these groups, having sufficient members, are organized and hold various picnics, outings, and prayer meetings during the school year. While these organizations are crowded into the background by the heavy run of other organizations, yet they have a solid base for organization in their home ties. Originally they were organized to act as agents in interesting prospective students. However, since other means have been inaugurated to accomplish this, the state groups have resolved themselves into campus organizations whose main interest is fellowship within the group.

JOHN WENGATZ LEADS REVIVAL Nov. 8-22 — This year ' s revival was one of genuineness. Reverend John Wengatz, on furlough from Africa, brought such earnest, fund- amental messages as to stir Taylor to her depth. On designated eve- nings the whole school met by classes to prepare for the evening service through prayer. Another whole day was set aside as a day of prayer. We heard from Heaven and rejoiced. Due to some misunderstanding Mr. Wengatz was delayed in com- ing but Doctor Stuart, Reverend Fox and Professor Greer faithfully filled the breach. |F YOURE FAIR AND SQUARE . TME WORLD W IL-L. SHARE J WITH YOU -Js c V [BLESSlNCrS, ' fair and square " Way Back When " EASTER BREAKFAST March 27 — After a week of whis- pered plans and surreptitious preparations Easter Sunday dawn- ed fair upon the Sophomores. They woke us with strains of Easter carols. They started our day with a sunrise service. They entertained us at a charming breakfast! A long line of guests, surprised upperclassmen, and wide-eyed Freshmen filed into the dining hall. But was this our own T. U. dining hall? In its dress of palms and Easter lilies it did not seem quite natural. While the Sophomore band played Easter songs we took our places around the delightfully appointed tables. After partaking of the bounteous breakfast, Professor Furbay led in the devotions. Before leaving the room everyone had to have a look at the interesting min- iature group depicting the two Marys at the tomb of our Savior. Credit for aid in this undertaking is due to Alice Doolittle and Ed- win Copper. The Sophomores made Easter Day worthwhile for the rest of the school. October 28-29 — A more approved beginning could not have been had for the inauguration of Robert Lee Stuart as President of Taylor Uni- versity than was given in the open- ing address of Dr. Lewis Robeson Akers, President of Asbury Col- lege, on Wednesday evening at 8 P. M. in Shreiner Auditorium. The thought that religion needs to be placed as the fourth " R " of our educational world was the non- precarious contention of the speaker. In the following address, Dr. Earl Enyeart Harper, Presi- dent of Evansville College, chal- lenged Taylor to meet the needs of the student ' with the Christian at- mosphere of Taylor under the energy of this new president. ' The speakers on Thursday morn- ing were President Arthur Pitten- ger of Ball State Teachers Col- lege and Dr. William Lowe Bryan of Indiana University, two of In- diana ' s best-known educators. President Pittinger, in his well pitted subject, " A God of the Resi- due, " warned Taylor against materialism. Dr. Bryan, the sec- ond speaker, spoke on " Paradise. " He stressed the pointed fact that we must walk the common path with man, among his struggles, plans, and failures, and " if needs be go to paradise and say with the thief, ' We shall be in paradise together ' . " In the afternoon in the Maytag Gymnasium, Bishop Edgar Blake spoke and Dr. Stuart was formally (Continued on page four) CHICAGO KICKS SENIORS HOME Sept. 30. — The campus was un- usually quiet this evening due to the expected absence of the Sen- iors. They reversed to Ekin M. E. Church for dinner and then rode their " pullman " to Chicago. After a full day of gazing in the Field Museum, Acquariam, Planetarium, and Jewish Ghetto and of dodging bullets and automobiles they found their way back home. The Seniors assure us that the " sneak " mem- ories are resplendent with items of individual interest. Page Two GEM RETROSPECT GEM RETROSPECT Lois King, Elizabeth Stuart Editors STAR GAZERS PICNIC What Think Ye? Our world has many thoughts but few thinkers. It seems a sign of nobleness and mentality if a person can flash before the mind some thoughts which give feelings of greatness, and which set the mind to tingling. It is even a char- acteristic of our age to accept these statement as wonderful and intelligent. Especially has this taken pos- session of our young people. Many young men tear around with a lot of incoherent and wild ideas in their mind which show no signs of thought. It satisfies for the mo- ment, and that is all they are asking. It has entered out ethical life; has made great niches in our lit- erature; and then it still continued and made great impressions in our religion. Not impressions, but gaps, and even holes. The appeal then is for thinkers. Too many are the bleak fancies of an inconsistent and ticklish world. " When a duty comes to us, with it comes a power to enable us to perform it. " Coolidge. Whether they give or refuse, it delights women equally to have been asked. Applause is the spur of noble minds, the end and aim of weak ones. " Youth is a blunder; Manhood a struggle; Old Age a regret. " — Disraeli. There can be no real courage without ignorance. All the world ' s a stage and women are leading men. The ladder of life is full of splinters — but you know they prick the hardest when we are sliding down. Valspar Water Test Date Unknown — This year Taylor University students displayed an unusual thirst for imitating Earl Carroll in respect to bathtub parties. The girls initiated plenty of trouble in a vain effort to dampen each other ' s spirits. Swal- low-Robin ceremoniously ' baptised ' their monitor in a midnight party. Wisconsin dorm upheld its reputa- tion with a number of small simi- lar episodes. January 29 — For one hour and fifteen minutes all campus traffic was halted as George C. Blaiksee, staff photographer of the Yerkes Observatory, graphically pictured the constellations by word and slide. At last we know some of the details which make the stars such a potent force in the world. OUR MOVIES The Educational Screen has served well in filling in " dead " spots in Taylor ' s program. Spon- sored by various groups as the history club and the school of mis- sions, they have presented a variety of interesting topics. Doc- tor Furbay has supplied the moti- vating energy to the other pro- grams. More power to the Educa- tional Screen! THE WORLD AND TAYLOR September 26 — T. U. was some- what surprised tonight by the ap- pearance of three unmasked band- its who proceeded to relieve the Corner Grocery of its ready cash. Mrs. Keith and Paul Bade can supply more detailed information. WALKING NOT CROWDED January 4 — Mr. Oliver Drake re- turned to school this morning and promptly retired to his room, re- fusing to interview reporters. The cause of Mr. Drakes vieled activi- ties were soon uncovered, however. Miss Florence Drake, Faith Birds- all, and Mina Herman, and Mr. Rob- ert Young revealed the fact that they were forced to amuse them- selves in Coldwater for thirteen hours while " Ollie " argued with his " struggle-buggy. " Latest re- ports are that Mr. Drake is recov- ering and the psychoanylists pre- dict NO injuries to his smooth flowing temperment. OUR HOBOS January 21 — The results of a mild winter may be readily seen in Don Smith and Bill Snead. Mistaking today for one of those rare June days you read about, the adven- tures sought release from " op- pressing " studies and ambled to Gas City late in the evening. Their greenness had become somewhat mixed with blueness when they floated in Friday morning. GOD ' S ARTISTRY The bright, rich tints of evening ' s glow With melting, fusing changes flow, Until at last the sun sinks low In a flood of pastel rays. ' Tis but another masterpiece Of God ' s own hand, which shall release A thousand more before it cease To inspire my humble praise. The tiny fleck of sparkling light The evening sun, foretells its flight Of short duration, till the right Shall claim it at its gates. And though the darkness cover earth ; Though quiet rest shall quench the dearth Of weariness — I know the birth Of a glorious dawn awaits. — J. Rhine FREEDOM UNDER LAW Splashing, dancing, waterfall, As I stand here and look on thee, So free and careless — what! can all This freedom ever be Under the force of gravity? Oh! I know thou needs must fall here, Day after day and year after year, Thou must keep going or the world, I fear, Would stop with thee. And yet how queer I say once more that thou art Free beyond that which I ever saw. If I could name thee, waterfall, Dancing, splashing waterfall, I ' d call thee " Freedom under Law. " — D. Kenyon Furbay Excavates October 17 — Dr. John H. Furbay startled the campus today by bringing two lions and a leopard from the circus grounds at Peru. This is part of the activity which is adding to Taylor ' s museum. An elephant is also an object of their expeditions. Seniors Given Welcome October 2 — This evening was the occasion of the big jamboree cele- brating the return of the Seniors from Chicago. Gay " togs " were very much in evidence as the groups played Flying Dutchman, Two Deep, Back-to-Back relay, and other favorite games. The Sophs had charge of the games and the Juniors assisted Miss Dare with the eats. GEM RETROSPECT Page Three PHILO HALLOWE ' EN THALONIAN DEBUT THALO HALLOWE ' EN October 31— Matthews City Hall was the scene of much hilarity to- night when the Philos designated that long white building as the final destination of their annual hay-ride. They poured into it by the truck-load, there were three of them altogether, and were re- ceived amid a profusion of blue and white along with other sea- sonal decorations. After the presentation of the presidents of both societies by James Rhine, the master of cere- monies, stunts were put on by the various groups. These included a new medicine which will reduce anyone at the rate, of twenty-five pounds a second, the lighthouse, charge of the light brigade, and annulled marriage. Mason Buck- ner and his mechanical dolls were awarded a box of " corn " candy by the judge, Wells V. Bishop. A relay proclaimed Mrs. Wells and Stu Weston to be among the fast- est dressers on the campus. " Ollie " Drake, alias " Pop-eye, " crossed his legs behind his head in inimitable Drake fashion. " Streets and Alleys " kept everyone on the go, if he didn ' t happen to land on his nose, for a lively interval. Last, but not least, came the sandwiches, cider, pumpkin pie and peanuts that served to make the ride home more enjoyable. The last carload must have thought it was a breakfast, for they came in at about 3 A. M. with the usual gag, " Out of Gas. " " Mother Minnetonka " September 24 — The Philalethean Literary Society entertained with a clever reproduction of Jack Stuart Knapp ' s musical arrange- ment of " Mother Minnetonka, " in Shreiner Auditorium. The theme of the program cen- tered around the love affair be- tween Night Fawn, daughter of the Chief of the Moon Tribe, and Gray Lance, son of Big Pine, chief of the Sun Tribe. Margaret Wolf very versatily played the part of Night Fawn, and Mason Buckner that of Gray Lance. Robert Titus and Fred MacKensie were heads of the Sun Tribe and Moon Tribe re- spectively. Irene Reeder and Robert Eaker were in charge of musical accompa- niments. Ardath Kletzing was chairman of the censor board. October 16, 1931 — The new mem- bers of the Thalonian Literary So- ciety presented their initial pro- gram tonight. It consisted of sing- ing, instrumental numbers, and a delightful one-act comedy. The first number was a flute solo; this was followed by the play called " The Smith Family, " a vocal solo, trumpet trio, a reading, and a piano solo. INITIO PHILALETHEO October 9, 1931— The new students representing the Philalethean Lit- erary Society very ably presented their first program tonight in the Shreiner Auditorium. The cast showed unusual talent in present- ing on the stage two typical col- lege rooms at Taylor; the one room representing that of a girl and the other that of a fellow. In their respective rooms they were supposedly practicing for the new student program to be given. Their numbers consisted of readings, piano solos, and vocal numbers.

K.s to Spanish serenaders and skeletons glided into the parlors. After amusing themselves with humorous antics and attempted identifica- tions they piled into their chariots and sped away to an enjoyable eve- ning. During the course of the eve- nings entertainment prizes were given to the best dressed couple, the best dressed individual and the best disguise. Betty Stuart and Arthur Hallberg were judged the best dressed couple. The remainder of the evening was devoted to games and amusements. Harry Griffiths, President of the Philos, was introduced along with Frank Simons, President of the Thalos, and they made short talks on the friendly attitude existing in the societies toward each other. The evening closed with a deluge of peanuts, pie and lots of good things to eat. The hungry indulged freely and then journeyed home from the best Hallowe ' en ever. Station T h a I o September 25 — The Thalonian Lit- erary Society presented in Shreiner Auditorium a novel program en- titled S-T-A-T-I-O-N T-H-A-L-O. Edwin Copper was in charge of the production. The scene of action took place behind a very unique curtain com- prising the panel of a radio and television screen. After Boots and Bud tuned the set to T-H-A-L-0 the program seen and heard was as follows: Miss Lohr - - Faith Birdsall Piano Solo Miss Mitchell - - Aline McNeil Piano Solo Jack and Dorothy - Hazel Simons and James Davis Dialogue Mr. Lietzing - - Arthur Hodson Clarinet Solo Mme. Jontiell - Ethelyn Cochrane Beauty Talk Feminine Troubadours - Misses Olson, Birdsall, Stuart and Atkinson Vocal Quartette Miss Dillon - - Elizabeth Furbay Organ Solo Page Four GEM EETROSPECT Senior Side-Lights May 10 — When we scan the Seniors we find the following statistics. Those who plan on a life-work of Christian Service have majored in Sociology, History, Philosophy and Psychology, Biblical Literature and Religious Education, and in Chemistry. Of those preparing for the ministry two have majored in History, two in English, and one each in Sociology, Biblical Litera- ture, Philosophy and Psychology, and Bible. The teachers have de- cided to expostulate in the follow- ing subjects: three in English, three in Sociology, two in Biology, four in History, two in Speech, and one each in French, Mathematics, Latin, and Music. Those intend- ing to go into Social Service unan- imously chose Sociology as a major. The missionaries chose Biblical Literature, Religious Edu- cation, Mathematics, English, and (4) Philosophy and Psychology. The five undecided members of the Class of ' 32 have our best wishes for a hasty decision but we fail to see how majors in (3) English, Biology, and Mathematics will di- rectly aid them in finding a hus- band (or wife). Out of Gas Pedaling an average of ninety miles per day, DeWitt Fowler bicycled his way to Taylor Uni- versity. From his accounts the journey must have been tremend- ously interesting, though tiresome. BISHOP WARNE DIES March 4 — Bishop Francis Wesley Warne, D. D., a retired bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church, died on Monday, February 29, in the Methodist Episcopal Hospital, Brooklyn, from a complication of diseases. Bishop Warne had given forty- one years of service as a mission- ary in India. In 1887 he was ap- pointed a missionary of the Metho- dist Church to India. In 1900 he was elected missionary bishop to India. Bishop Warne is remem- bered for his evangelistic and edu- cational work among the outcaste and lowcaste peoples. Taylor University lost a loyal friend in the passing of this man. Many times he had thrilled his audiences here on our campus with his stirring messages. Funeral services were held in St. Mary ' s Methodist Episcopal Church in Brooklyn, on Friday evening, March 4. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Simons set sail for Tarvia on the S. S. " Con- vulsions. " Mr. Simons will assume his new duties as chemical engi- neer for Copper and Boyle, Per- fumers Extraordinary. Charles Wesley Bush was admit- ted to the Einstein Club of New York City today. Madeline Wells enrolled at Vas- sal ' to complete her teachers train- ing course. Chester Smith, has won fame as Supremo Teno in the Eskimo Frigidaire choir, broadcasting over the pink network of the XYZ every Saturday evening. Inauguration (Continued from page one) inducted into the office of presi- dent. Bishop Blake spoke on the place of the small college in the educational world. Then, Linton A. Wood, president of the Legal Hundred, conferred authority upon the new president. There followed a most characteristic address of Dr. Stuart in which he said, " When I accept this task, I do not feel suf- ficient, but in the Master ' s name, I humbly accept this high and holy office. " Music for the various sessions was furnished by Miss Theodora Bothwell, Director of the School of Music; Professor and Mrs. Ken- neth Wells; the Taylor University quartet; the Taylor University Chorus; and Dr. Melvin J. Hill. Maytag Accident Proves Fatal October G— Mr. Theodore H. May- tag, member of the Legal Hundred of Taylor University, died at 7:40 this morning in Skiff Memorial Hospital, Newton, Iowa. He had suffered for weeks from injuries received in an automobile accident on Highway No. 32, about six miles east of Grinnell, Iowa. Mr. Maytag has always been an outstanding figure in worthwhile enterprises. He was actively con- nected with the Y. M. C. A., Iowa Methodist Hospital, Newton Salva- tion Army, Senior Chamber of Commerce of Newton, and the Methodist Church. He was also serving in official capacity for the Wesleyan Foundation in Iowa. Tay- lor University will always honor him for his generous contribution for the construction of the Maytag gymnasium. His wife, three brothers, four sisters, three children, and a host of friends mourn the passing of this great humanitarian. DR. BLODGETT DIES BISHOP BLAKE Inaugural Speaker Feb. 26— Dr. Herbert Thomas Blodgett died at his home in Up- land today after an extended ill- ness. He suffered a stroke of para- lysis in 1929, from which he did not fully recover. His death was hastened by a fall in which his hip was ibroken. Dr. Blodgett came to Taylor University as Professor of Agri- culture and Biology in September, 1921. Because of ill health, he was forced to give up his teaching work in 1927. " Dr. Blodgett was greatly loved by the students and his fellow- teachers. He had long been a trainer of teachers, and had built up a system of habits which he tried to build into the lives of stu- dents, especially those who were to become teachers. He had a clean-cut, rigorous mo rality. " He had passionate love for na- ture, and for beauty wherever found. His aesthetic soul was so sensitive that he was frequently moved to tears in the presence of beautiful objects or at the hearing of beautiful music. His love of the beautiful carried him into the field of poetry, both for appreciation and creation. " These words are the tribute of Dr. B. W. Ayres. Memorical services for Dr. Blod- gett were held at Tavlor University at three o ' clock on Saturday after- noon, February 27. Burial was made at Riverside Cemetery, Do- wagiac, Michigan, on Sunday afternoon. THE GEM RETROSPECT SECOND SECTION TAYLOR UNIVERSITY POGUE DWELLS IN RECITAL PUBLIC RECITAL Pogue Elucidates March 23, 1932— The annual pub- lic recital of the music students of Taylor University was held to- night. The program consisted of unique numbers of varied nature. Professor Fenstermacher intro- duced a novelty when his instru- mental sextet rendered a difficult overture. Mrs. Alice McNeil, a senior in piano appeared twice on the program. The whole group of performers are advanced students in the Music School, and the re- cital was under the direction of Miss Bothwell and Professor Wells. CHECK DIGNITY AT DOOR Feb. 13. — This evening, was the occasion of the second student fac- ulty mixer of the school year. Needless to say it was a tremend- ous success. Professor Furbay started the fun, (as usual), by appearing on the scene dressed in a long swal- low-tailed coat, high collar, and a red necktie. President Stuart, seeing him, rushed in pursuit across the floor, around the gym, through the bleachers, and back to the floor again. A tussel ensued in which Dr. Stuart downed Prof. Furbay for the count of ten. After that the events of the eve- ning moved rapidly. Get-acquainted games were played, and in this way we all found out many interesting facts about each other which we did not know before. One of the interesting features of this part of the program was that we had re- vealed to us the secret of the beauty of some of our " co-eds. " The faculty then provided a great deal of amusement by try- ing to go through the ordeal of one of our " Phy-Ed. " classes. This finished in a grand " free for all, " with Dr. Ayres delivering more blows per second than any other two put together! The final act on the program was the " grand march " to the tables where Miss Dare, with her helpers, served sandwiches and cocoa to the hungry, but merry Taylor family. October 7 — Professor Barton Rees Pogue gave a most interesting illustrated lecture on the life of James Whitcomb Riley. Many a fellow ' s heart was quickened by scenes and descriptions which brought boyhood memories galore. FRESHMAN CAP BURNS May 3 — It was complete; this tra- ditional class night with its Father Time and the infant; its yelling and speeches; its singing and sor- rows. But now let ' s tell about it. The Freshmen escorted the upper classmen from the parlors of Wis- consin dorm around the east lane over to the high bonfire in the field south of Magee hall. To light the way, the Frosh held high lighted torches. Arrived at the bonfire, each class gave yells and then all joined in the singing of the Taylor song. Very soon Father Time ar- rived with the infant; and ex- plained to her just why Taylor U. is a choice college. Cleo Skelton, president of the Senior class presented the class emblem to the Junior president ad- monishing him to continue to keep it in the high state that the Senior classes before them have kept it. Fred Vosburg presented the Junior key to the Sophomore president. The Freshman president received the Sophomore emblem and in turn eagerly tossed the green cap of ' 35 into the fire. Singing of the Tay- lor hymn ended the festivities. Organ Contest May 18 The Rose Organ Contest will be held this year for the second time in the history of Taylor. The con- test number, " The Canon " in B minor bv Schuman, will be played by Elizabeth Furbay, Irene Reeder, Roberta Bennett, Elizabeth Stuart, and Dorothy Mathews as con- testants. Sponsored by Joint Committee of the Two Societies March 4. — Professor Barton Rees Pogue and Professor Kenneth Wells appeared in a joint Thalo- Philo program in Shriener Auditor- ium. This was the first time these two artists have appeared on a program of this kind together. Professor Wells sang numbers from the " Messiah " by Handel and then sang numbers in French, Ger- man and Italian. In his final group he sang some numbers of his own composition and for his encore sang the unique composi- tion " The Crow ' s Egg. " Professor Pogue read three groups of his own poems. These groups were entitled " Poems of Hope, " " Poems of Home, " and " Poems of Happiness. " Professor Pogue never fails to interest Tay- lor University students, especially in relating the interesting settings of his writings. Literary Contestants The Literary Contest promises to be very interesting this spring. The societies have chosen the fol- lowing contestants: THALO PHILO Roberta Bennett Irene Reeder Organ Faith Birdsall Irene Reeder Piano Thomas Sears Park Anderson Violin Wayne Allee Jo Gates Oration Marian Atkinson Robert Titus Voice Louise Fox Margaret Wolf Reading Frances Scott Alice Doolittle Essay RICE TO SPEAK Dr. Merton S. Rice, nationally known preacher and lecturer of Detroit, Michigan, will be the com- mencement speaker. The class is looking forward to this great event as a climax of their four years.

The banquet hall of the Methodist Church was cleverly converted into a miniature " Leviathan " and was decorated in blue and gold — the colors of the navy. In charge of a competent captain the passengers arrived at their destination all too soon. GEISER-PAUL NUPTIALS Feb. 25 — Miss Pauline Evelyn Geiser, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. E. Geiser, of Doylestown, Ohio, became the bride today of Mr. John Mark Paul, the son of Dr. and Mrs. John Paul, of Chicago, Illinois. Rev. John Ashley read the nuptials in the presence of Miss Mollie Bell and Mrs. John Ashley. The couple will make their home in Upland. Bothivell Teas Miss Bothwell ' s studio was the scene of many delightful teas this year, in honor of the seniors. Almost every Friday afternoon found a small group there, chatting over their tea cups. Miss Bothwell, pouring tea, was a charming host- ess, and this hour at dusk set aside for tea, was a refreshing relaxation from Friday classes. Oriental Poiv-Woiv April 23 — Strains of organ music, the soothing sensation of bubbling waters enlivened now and then by a sea gull, and elaborate decora- tions of the Orient greeted the Strong-hearted maidens and their guests as they met tonight to en- joy the mystc charm of the Sea Gull Inn. The banquet climaxed a very successful year for the Soangetahas. Miss Lois Pugh was in charge of the arrangements.

Leap Year Leap February 19. — The co-eds who re- side in Magee and Campbell dorm- itories entertained their gentle- men friends at a delightfully ap- pointed formal dinner this evening.

April 16 — The girls of Campbell- Magee dormitory outdid themselves in open house festivities this year. They must have spent the entire day in cleaning and adding extras for the occasion. Leastwise the fellows were not disappointed in their highest expectations. At 9:30 all assembled in the par- lors to receive an ice cream cone and enjoy a very clever program. After Marian Atkinson had de- lighted her audience with two vocal solos, a selected cast presented that gruesome orgy of murder and death, " Shakespearean Hash. " Then, as soon as the wooden sol- diers had wrestled with their heavy artillery for a time; they maneuv- ered in " T " formation and led in the Taylor song. Bravo, ladies. Fellows Clean House April 29 — The co-eds and the gen- eral public had their curiosity sat- isfied tonight when the Wisconsin and Swallow-Robin fellows opened their respective abodes for inspec- tion. After a day of spasmodic scrubbing and washing they gave their visitors a treat of eye-sights along with their punch, gum drops and chocolate bars. The hour and a half was crowded full of excla- mations and suprises and the boys ' are glad that their visitors were so delighted. Soangetaha Outing April 30 — The Hotel Roberts in Muncie was host for the annual Eulogonian Banquet this evening. At seven-thirty an elaborate dinner was served to about fifty guests. The music for the occasion was rendered by Herbert Conrad and Betty Cope of Ball State. Robert Dennis acted as toastmaster and introduced Dr. Saucier and Dr. Bramlett as speakers. Mr. Frank Simons was chairman of the com- mittee. EULOGS BANQUET TONIGHT October 10 — The Strong Hearted Maidens entertained about thirty- five of the new girls with a " paper chase " and breakfast. After the breakfast in the woods, Professor Greer led the morning devotions. Marg Wolf and Irma Jean Wells gave readings. Feb. 26— The Soangetaha Debating Club successfully defended the question that " National Advertis- ing as now carried on is more det- rimental than beneficial to society. " The debaters were Esther Masters, Irene Jester and Margaret Wolf. The Mnankas, contending for the negative, were represented by Isa- bel Gilbert, Marian Scott and Mar- gery Kleinefeld. The Eurekan and Eulogonian Debating Clubs divided the two de- bates this year. The Eurekans, represented by Stanley Boughton, Gordon Herrmann and Peter Pas- coe, upheld the affirmative side of the question " Resolved: That sta- bility of employment should be re- quired of industry as a fundamen- tal remedy of unemployment. " The Eulogs were represented by Don Kenyon, Bernard Coldiron and Rob- ert Jacobs. In the Spring Term the Eulogs walked off with the honors. Their team, Oscar Cook, Bernard Cold- iron and Glenn Phipps, took the negative side of the question " Re- solved: That the nations should adopt a free trade policy. " The Eurekan team was composed of Blaine Bishop, Marvin Schilling and Raymond Norton. FURBAY IN RECITAL Octoiber 23 — In a program which aptly displayed her exceptional tal- ent, Mrs. Elizabeth Dearmin Fur- bay presented her organ recital this evening. The program opened with " Concert Overture " by Hollins and closed with " The Taccato " by Widor. These extracts are evi- dences of the many hours of care- ful study and practise necessary. Mrs. Furbay was honored with many bouquets of chrysanthemums, rose buds, and dahlias. Mary Rice, reader, assisted Mrs. Furbay. Williamson in Recital May 14 — Gladys Williamson, ' 32, was presented in recital in piano by Theodora Bothwell. She has studied for the last two years under Professor Bothwell and has been much in demand as accompa- nist and soloist. She has accom- panied orchestras, quartets, and many soloists including Professor Kenneth Wells. She was assisted by Margaret Wolf, reader. The Sophs have been unusually active this year in all lines. Be- sides fixing the dining hall bell, they have partially remedied the squeak in the chapel stairs and have cleaned the pool in the sunken garden. However this has not taken all of their time. On two occasions they were to be heard having hilarious times in the gym. At another time they amused them- selves in the Art room in Swallow- Robin. Not satisfied with that they transported the class to the Glenns for an evening of food, fun and frolic. Greer Host to Seniors May 9 — Professor George Dixon Greer, sponsor of the Senior class, and his wife delightfully entertain- ed the Class of ' 32 in an outing at the town park. After some hot competition at baseball and horse- shoes a tempting meal of coffee and hamburgers laden with all the trappings was served. For The First Time May 2-3 — The Juniors greatly surprised the easy going student body by posting guards at the Ad building doors to require class emblems for admittance. This is the first positive step that has been taken to enforce Junior rules. Me- thinks it wouldn ' t be a bad idea to make the Frosh wear the " green " all year. GLEE CLUB WEAKENS February 6 — This evening the Girl ' s Glee Club gave us just an- other item of proof that women can ' t get along without men very long. From all reports the party was a huge success from the stand- point of the girls because they found opportunity to propose to their gentlemen friends during the course of the evening. Our alibi: There never has been any great genius without a spice of madness — Seneca. It is not being dead but the pro- cess of dying that frightens us. " — ■ Dean W. R. Inge. Page Eight GEM RETROSPECT Sympathy -Seekers WISCONSIN MEN INTIMIDATE CAMPUS PERSONALS If this war correspondent should take the space to schedule all the sickness during the year, he would have another directory. Miss Fur- bay, the college nurse, has a list of " case-studies " large enough to make Dean Saucier ' s list blush with envy. The call has gone out three times for crutches for gentlemen who needed extra " legs. " Joe Kimbel took his turn in the hos- pital coaxing poison out of his leg. A similar but more serious case was that of Mr. McLaughlin. Bar- ton Rees Pogue decided he had been working too hard and took a rest cure for some time. James Henderson also used the hospital as a base of operations for a time. We haven ' t the heart to narrate further. We all remember the very thoughtful care of our friends. " You ' ve felt ' all along that you weren ' t much good, Or rated very high in the neigh- borhood, But you change your mind when you get " upsot " — So it ' s fun to be sick, if you ' re not sick a lot. " Pogue. Inquisitive Informant WHAT DO YOU THINK HAS BEEN THE MOST OUTSTAND- ING EVENT AT TAYLOR THIS YEAR? That ' s easy. I think the way some of these people at Taylor whom I thought would never get an S. P. have gotten together is the most outstanding event. It isn ' t really an event, for lots have seemingly been lucky, but I believe that to some it is a mighty big event in their lives. Oliver Drake. Being a music student I am rather prejudiced, and therefore would naturally confine my answer to the music school. The Welsh singers, is my answer. They could not be beaten, and they have given Taylor a hopeful outlook of more musical events. Irene Reeder. The event which most struck me this year was the production of the play just prior to the Christ- mas holidays, " Why The Chimes Rang. " It was played well, and its message, I believe, shall always remain as an inspiration. Margaret Wolf. October 3 — The T. U. season opened today with a baseball game between the Campus and Wiscon- sin Dorm. The game was played according to first-game style, with plenty of errors, walks, and hits. The outcome of the game was never doubtful, finally ending 14-8 for the Wisconsin men. The outstanding performances of the day were turned in by Skel- ton and Howard. Cleo pounded out a homer, a triple, a two bagger, and a single before he scared the pitcher into walking him. Art drew two passes and smacked the ball for a triple and a double. Score by innings: Wisconsin -063 300 02 — 14 14 7 Campus 102 100 202— 8 7 6 Batteries: Norton, P. Lewis and Musselman, Skelton; Bush, Derk, Spaude and Schlafman. New Girls Enjoy Frolic October 3 — As a part of today ' s double-header the new co-eds bat- ted their way to an unmistakable victory over the old girls. Umpire Gates became a little dizzy as they made a merry-go-round of the diamond to the tune of 25-18. The sensations of the morning were provided by Polly Geiser. She seemed quite adept in earning extra-hase hits. The new girls were also proficient in stealing bases. They even took the breath of the male spectators on a few occasions. The batteries for the game were: for the Old Girls, Hogan and Ying- ling; and for the New Girls, Brothers and Cripen. BULLETIN May 7— The 1932 baseball series got under way this afternoon when the Philos eked out the Thalos 7-6 in an extra inning game. The game was close all the way and was un- usually well played for a first game. Campbell pitched for Philos and fanned sixteen batsmen during the course of the proceedings. Nor- ton pitched equally well for the Thalos besides doing a good days work with the bat. Score by innings: R H E Thalos 201 002 100—6 6 3 Philos 110 400 001—7 5 5 FOR SALE— Logis by Cunning- ham.
