This yearbool is a word and picture record of " our year ' 56- ' 57, " a year of learning, maturing, and spiritual deepening. While we prayed, played, and studied, the world closely watched the crisis in revolt-torn Hungary and the flare-up over the Suez Canal. In our own country President Dwight D. Eisenhower retained the popularity of the people and the first office of the land, and the nation was gradually implementing the Supreme Court desegregation decisions. Just as Taylor ' s door opened to offer us a rich, rewarding experience in higher education, we pray that the opening of our GEM will prove a wonderful and enlightening experience for you.

Though brief, four years in a college situation provides experiences to heighten them spiritually, scholas- tically, and socially — to make their entire lives an asset to society.

" Sickler Hall Erected in 1909, Sickler Hall has served as men ' s dormitory and now is the nucleus for the ed ucation department. This brick structure also house several professor ' s offices, the GEM and ECHC offices, the Youth Conference office, and the praye chapel.

Students may participate in registration, parties, receptions, intramurals, Youth Conference, and graduation all under this roof. No one sound can be associated with Maytag.

Swallow-Robin Dorm Affectionately known as the " bird - barn, " Swallow-Robin Dormitory is the residence of sixty- six freshman girls. Seldom is a freshman girls ' dorm- itory quiet, and the bird-barn is no exception. All is not gaiety because study, prayer, and fellowship are also a part of dormitory life. Table tennis anyone? Spring fever is a pleasant affliction. ' Where did the evening go so soon? " " The Bird ' s Nest " Keeps the brood at the bird-house. Profs, not monks in these catacombs.

Magee Campbell Dormitory Students ' " living " room for socials, discussions, or lounging Mom, advisor, and friend Approved by Good Houskeeping The lobby and parolsr of Magee Campbell Dormitory are the favorite meet- ing place for campus couples and visitors alike. Every day is a day of excitement in a girls ' d ormitory, whether it be in preparation for a big banquet or for Home- coming, or just an informal party or a quiet date. This is home away from home for Christian college girls.

Here we make practical appli- cations of our book knowledge to grow spiritually, mentally, and socially. What better place can one learn the art of compatible living than in the closely knit atmosphere of a college dormitory? 28 Our Pop and Mom away from home. A man ' s home is his castle. Building of True ' ' Fellow " Ship The water yellows laundry, but — cleanliness is still next to Godliness, fe. m MM If I 1 Miscellaneous Buildings There are many small miscellaneous build- ings that are very vital to our campus. The building housing the post office, the bookstore, and the grill is the center of the campus social life. The married students v ill attest to the necessity of the new housing and the trailer park. The razing of Sammy Morse also pro- vided room for the nev office buildings to ease the crov ded office situation for professors. Kollege Korner draws students with its book- store, supply office, and gift shop. Keepin ' in touch with the outside world Keepin ' in touch with the inside world Sign of the Times Old Sammy Morris is razed to make way for new office buildings. New housing units to provide for the increasing number of married students are erected. The trailer court is a colorful segment of the campus and offers comfortable homes for married students.

This is the first building in our twenty-five year program, which will ultimately cost over five million dollars. 32 Taylor of Tomorrow Ma •jS ' 33 I I I I 34 The AdministraWon The Faculty The Staff The Student Body TAYLOR— the people 35 Board of Trustees Any expanding college such as Taylor University needs expert coordination for organization and planning. The maintenance of high academic standards, provision for sufficient athletic programs, plans for nev construction, consideration of faculty alterations, and exam- ination of student-faculty policy are among the major concerns of a group of thirteen trustees and two honorary trustees, known to every- one as the Board of Trustees. The board originates ideas leading to actions which advance University prestige expansion. Seated: Rev. Hugh S. Townley, Rev. Herbert M. Frazer, Mr. Lester C. Gerig, Mr. Howard M.

BERGWALL, A.B., B.D., D.D., alumnus, minister, president . . . Dr. Bergwall was graduated from Taylor University and the Yale University School of Divinity. He was awarded the Doctor of Divinity degree by Asbury Theological Seminary and has pursued graduate study at New York University, Emery Uni- versity, and Oxford University. DEAN OF THE FACULTY VICE-PRESIDENT MILO A. REDIGER, A.B., M.A., Ph.D. Dean Rediger handles everything from the Academic Budgeting and the Academic Program, to Faculty recruiting and student scholastic problems. His warm smile and friendly advice quickly melt any fears that might accompany a visit to the DEAN. VICE-PRESIDENT IN CHARGE OF DEVELOPMENT REV. HAROLD E. CAMP Rev. Camp ' s title doesn ' t begin to betray the immensity of his position. Rev. Camp is Taylor ' s Fund-Raiser Extraordinary, in charge of procurring the finances for the projected build- ing program. This is no small job when one realizes that he has to ferret out a source for between three and five million dollars. VICE-PRESIDENT EMERITUS DR. BURT W. AYRES, B.S., M.A., LL.D., Ph.D. Our beloved nonagenarian, Burt W. Ayres, though now ad- ministratively inactive, still exerts a stabilizing influence on our campus. This Grand Old Gentleman ' s advice, drawn from many years of experience, is invaluable to the students and faculty alike. 39 40 REGISTRAR DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS MISS GRACE D. OLSON, A.B., M A. Miss Grace Olson has the almost overwhelming task of sorting and selecting each year ' s new students from the more than three thousand applicants. Her job becomes more and more difficult as Taylor continues to grow. DEAN OF STUDENTS DR. WILLIAM D. GREEN, A.B., M.A., Ed.D. Dr. Green has a very perplexing position, having to cope with both the external pressure of alumni and constituents, and the internal pressure of students trying to circumvent the regulations. He uses consistancy as his gyroscope in main- taining stability between the levels of student-faculty relations. BUSINESS MANAGER MR. PAUL D. KELLER, B S., Mus.M. Mr. Keller ' s title sounds just as all-encompassing as his position is. He has a supervisory capacity over the Business Office, the Bookstore and Grill, the Buildings and Grounds Department, the Duplicating and Mailing Department, the Faculty and Staff and Married Students Housing, and the Director of Food Services.

Marty ' s versatility has been an asset to many of the cam- pus organizations. She has delved into student government and is a four year veteran of the Trojanes. Ambassadors and Holiness League have utilized her leadership abilities, and she has par- ticipated on several gospel teams. JANET BENNING ' S physical education major is very apparent v hen one checks into her activities. She has served this year as Trojane co-captain, as president of WRA, and as a member of the Social Activities and Recreational commitee. Previous Youth Conference v ork as an altar worker and discussion group leader culminated in the tremendous task of accomodations co-chairman this year.

She has served as a dorm counselor, as past president of the English Club, and past literary editor of the GEM, as sec- retary of the Hoiines League and the senior class, and as discussion group co-chairman for Youth Conference. This year Miriam is an English major and is planning service on the mission field. 94 Colleges and Universities Mr. Student Government is the title that might best fit RAYMOND ISLEY for his work on re- organizing and revitalizing Taylor student govern- ment. Ray has initiated and pushed many nev facets of student government for the advancement of the University. He served as Student Body Pres- ident and president of Symposium Dialecticum. Ray is majoring in chemistry and minoring in history and modern languages to prepare for medical school and eventually the foreign mission field. NANCY DE LAY v ho has majored in home eco- nomics and English, is planning for a future in missionary work. Nancy ' s offices have included sec- retary of the class and president of Chi Sigma Phi. She worked on the 1957 Youth Conference staff serving as art co-chairman and hostess. This year Nancy was a member of Symposium Dialecticum. ROBERT GILKISON will be remembered for his political activities while he was here at Taylor. As preparation either for teaching in Christian higher educaton or for entering politics and public service, Bob has majored in history and minored in eco- nomics, political science and sociology. His campus activities include being vice-president of Symposium Dialecticum, associate editor of the Echo, treasurer of the National Student Association co-ordinator of the Student Council, and president of the Polit- ical Science Club. 95 Who ' s Who Biblical Literature, English and history are the subject combinations that have prepared CHAR- LOTTE JUSTICE for her work in Christian education. Charlotte has held many campus offices including president of the English Club and secretary of Sym- posium Dialecticum. She has also contributed to both of the campus publications, to the ECHO as feature editor, and to the GEM as a literary writer.

She was the chairman of the 1956 Junior-Senior Banquet, program chairman for Chi Sigma Phi, a dormitory counselor, recording secretary for F.T.A., and sec- retary of accommodations for the 1955 Youth Con- ference. Manifestations of campus life prominently as- sociated with RUTH UNKENHOLZ are student gov- ernment, English classes, and superior grades. Teaching and being a minister ' s wife loom in the offing for Ruth. Her college experiences, which in- cludes a home economics minor, has encompassed work as an orientation leader, service as news editor and associate editor of the ECHO, member- ship in the acapella choir, representation of her class on the Student Council, and leadership as prayer co-chairman for the 1955 Youth Conference. 96 First row; left to rigtit, Sarah Greiner, Virginia Pugsley, Mary Massar, Joyce Kaufman Second row: Ruth Unlcenholz, Robert Gilicison, Joan Chapin, Janet Benning. Raymond Isley, absent Chi Alpha Omega This senior honor society was founded in 1953 to encourage and reward high scholarship. In Revelations 22:13, Jesus said, " I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. " Thus the three Greek letters Chi, Alpha and Omega were chosen to signify Christ, first and last. The members are chosen by the president of the University, the president of the Student Council, and the Administrative Committee of the society. No more than ten percent of the graduating class can be elected in one year, and the candi- dates must meet the scholastic qualifications necessary to graduate " cum laude. " The purpose of the society, as set forth in the constitution is " to recognize and foster high scholarship dedicated to Christian purposes and exemplified in Christian leadership and character. " Elected to Chi Alpha Omega this year were: Janet Benning, Joan Chapin, Robert Gilkison, Sarah Greiner, Raymond Isley, Joyce Kauffman, Mary Massar, Virginia Pugsley, and Ruth Unkenholz. Dr. Burt W. Ayres was inducted as an honorary member. 97 Student Council Seated: Joan Tibbett, Betty Godsey, Dean William Green, President Raymond Isely, Ruth Unkenholz, Miriam Martin, Marlene Foura.

" Conquerors Thru Christ " As the last year of college approaches and the senior class becomes even more to everyone through its campus contributions, the class officers are particularly in the limelight. The entire campus looks to the seniors for leadership and for the knowledge and experience of " the elders. " The class this year added much to the evidences of maturity on our campus. They sponsored the dedication and the premier of the movie " Venture for Victory " ; they enacted the mystery " The Night Is My Enemy, " and they were the guests of honor on Move-Up Day. The senior class officers selected a committee to formulate the class will and the junior class scrap- book for the Move-up celebration. The campus was noticeably quiet without the class when they pulled their annual " Skip Day. " 102 " Christ Our Guide " The most important function of the Junior Class is the annual Junior-Senior Banquet. The banquet this year, held at Hillsdale Country Club, in Indianapolis, Indiana, was bigger and better than ever. The class of 1958 has the ability to do all things well. This was seen in their Class Day victory and their victory in the Home- coming float contest. Their efforts to raise finances for the Junior-Senior Banquet included: presentation of " A Night for Shudders " and sponsorship of the Four Alarmers Quartet, the Barbershop Quartet Contest, and the County Fair Queen Contest. Seated: left to right; Jane Vanzant, Rolf Larsen, Duane Cuthbertson, president.

Their primary task is to promote a feeling of unity and to start planning for the Junior-Senior Banquet. Led by President Ron Valutis the sophomores had a very busy social calendar this year with two exchange parties with Marion College highlighting the season. At Christmas the class organized and presented a Christmas party for the children of the Grant County Orphans ' Home.

" Soldiers of the Cross ' The freshman class officers are confronted with the problems of leading their neophyte classmates, signified by their green beanies, through their first year of college. These underclassmen, led by Wayne Sampson, are anything but underdogs, having placed second in the Class Day activities and boasting an attendant in both the Homecoming Queen ' s Court and the court of the County Fair Queen. Possessing much potential, the class of 1960 is destined to shine in the years to come. 105 Seated: Cleo Murdoch, Ruth Unkenholz, Dorothy Miller, Betty Egeberg, Patricia Martin, Carol Coyner.

Orientation Leaders This organization of upperclassmen is de- signed to orient the starry-eyed new freshmen on various phases of college life and to famil- iarize them with the college community. While this system helps the freshmen with problems, such as how to study and how to react to various situations, it also gives the leaders much valuable experience in leadership and counsel- ing work, which runs parallel to the required " Principles of Leadership " course. During Orientation Week the freshmen and transfer students are tested, shown films concerning college life, and introduced to the faculty, de- partments, activities, and clubs on our campus.

Bi-monthly the staff mem- bers ferret-out, organize, write, and headline main events — all a part of reporting and make- up. Punctuating the Echo pages are dashes of humor and periods of pathos.

Speed and aggressiveness made up for a lack of height, and these qualities won ball games. The 98-88 upset over league- leading Indiana Central was the highlight of the year ' s play. A flaw in teamwork distresses OdIe in Earlham game. An easy one-hander by the " Chief " ■- ' I Little, 5 ' 8 " , Oris Reece led the assault on the backboard from the field with a brestling .461 field goal percentage. Jack King was the top man in the scoring column with a 14.1 average for the twenty-four game schedule. The first five men all averaged oven ten markers per game. Senior co- captains Ken Stark and Ted Shisler lent experience to the team; Reece provided the spark; and George Glass and Jack King added the balance for an efficiently operating basketball machine. Time-out for a change in strategy Shisler checks the shoe size on Anderson ' s Wilson t . King ' s got it and Central wants it. The Tropans got off to a flying start by win- ning six of their first nine games. Disaster struck on the Christmas Holiday road trip through Arkansas and Louisiana as the locals dropped three in a row. Shisler and Stark will be the only casualties to graduation, so the ream next year should be a winner all the way. Nice shoulder block by Wilson sends Shisler flying. Lir Orie lays up two for Taylor.

Venture for Victory — Bibles and Basketballs Gary Ausbun Anderson College Clyde Cook Biola College Five years ago Venture for Victory evolved as a novel and fruitful method of spreading the gospel. The first three teams toured the Orient and were a wonderful success. The team last year toured South America and was again successful in winning games and leading souls to Jesus Christ. The team this year will be joined by two former team members who are now missionaries and will spend the summer months playing in schools, army camps, prisons, hospitals, factories, and refugee camps in the Orient. In four years of playing the best competition available, Venture for Victory teams have compiled a 304-4 record.
