FHIEL causes 6REENVlLI.E,PA
by Joseph Auslancler
This man is dead.
Everything' you can say
Is now quite definitely said:
This man held up his head
And had his day,
Then turned his head a little to one way
And slept instead.
Young horses give up their pride:
You break them in
By brief metallic discipline
And something else beside . .
So this man died.
Wfhile he lived I did not know
This mang I never heard
His name. Now that he lies as though
He were remembering' some word
lle had forgotten yesterday or so,
It seems a bit absurd i
That his blank lids and matted hair should grow
Suddenly familiar . . . l,et him be interred.
Steady now . . . That was his wife
Making' that small queer inarticulate sound
Like a knifeg
Steady there ... I ,et him slip easily into the ground:
Do not look at her,
She is lighting for breath . .
She a foreigner . .
Polak . . . like him . . . she cannot understand . .
It is hard . . . Leave her alone with death
:Xml a shovelful of sand.
HU the pity of it, the pity of it, Iago !" .
Christ, what a hell
ls packed into that line! Each syllable
Bleecls when you say it . . . No matter: Chicago
ls a 'lar cry from Cracow: A
What have Poles
To rlo with such extraneous things as hearts and souls?
'llhere is nothing here to beat the breast over,
Nothing' to relish the curious,
Not a smell of the romantic: this fellow
Was hardly your yearning lover '
l'i1'lltSi1'ZlllC1lZ no punchinellog
lilut just a hunky in a steel mill. XfVhy then fuss
Because his heavy Slavic 'face went yellow
VX'itl1 the roaring' furnace dust? Now that he is in
'.If'he cool sweet crush of dirt, to hell with your sobbing violin
Your sanctimonious 'cellol
l.et the mill bellow!
If you have ever had to do with steel:
The open-hearth, the blooming-mill, the cranes
Howling under a nity-ton load, trains
Yowling in the black pits where you reel
Groggily across a sluice of orange hre, a sheet
Tongued from the conduits that bubble blue green, if
Ever you have got a single whiff
Out of Bessemeids belly, felt the drag
And drip and curdle of steel spit hissing against hot slag:
If ever you have had to eat
One hundred and thirty degrees of solid heat,
Then screwed the hose to the spigot, drowned in steam.
Dartecl back when the rods kicked up a stream
O17 fluid steel and had to duck the ladle that slobbered
over, and scream
Your throat raw to get your Goddam! through-
Then I ani talking to you.
Steve did that for ten years with quiet eyes,
And body down to the belt caked wet
Wiith hardening cinder splash and stiffening sweat
And whatever else there is that clots and never utterly dries
ll-le packed the mud and dolomite, made back-wall,
I-lerded the heat, and placed his throw in tall
Terrible arcs behind smoked glasses, and watchedit fall
Heavy and -straight and true,
Wihile the blower kept the gas at a growl and the brew
Yelled red and the inelter hollered Hkleow l" and you raveled
Her out and the thick soup gargled and you traveled
Like the devil to get out from undei '... Wlell, Steve
For ten years of abdorninal heft and heave
VVorked steel. So muchfor that. And after
Ten years of night shifts, fourteen hours each,
The Bessemers burn your nerves up, bleach
Rebellion out of your bones: and laughter
Sucked clean out Ofli your guts becomes
More dead than yesterday's feet moving to yesterday's drums. .
And so they called him "Dummy," The whole gang
lfrom pit' boss down to the last mud-slinger cursed t
And squirted tobacco juice in a hot and mixed harangue
Ol Slovene, Serb, Dutch, Dago, Russian, and-worst-
English as hard and toothless as a skull.
And Steve stared straight ahead of him and his eyes were dull.
Anna was Steve's little woman
W'ho labored bitterly enough,
Making children of stern and tragic sutff
And a rapture that was hammered rough,
Spilling steel into their spines, yet keeping them wistful and
human . . .
Anna had her work to do
W'ith cooking and cleaning
And washing the window curtains white as new,
Washing them till they wore through:
For her the white curtains had a meaning-
And starching them white against the savage will
Ol' the grim dust belching incessantly out of the mill:
Soaking and scrubbing and ironing against that gritty reek
Until her head swam and her knees went weak
And she could hardly speak.
A terrible unbeaten purpose persisted:
Color crying against a colorless world!
White against black at the windows flung up, unfurled!
Candles and candle light!
'llhe llags of a lonely little woman twisted
Out ol' her hunger for cool clean beauty, her hunger for white!-
'llhese were her banners and this was her hght!
No matter how tired she was, however she would ache
ln every nerve, she must boil the meat and bake
The bread, and the curtains must go up white-for Steve's sake!
One thing was Certain:
That John and Stanley and Helen and Marv and the
Must be kept out of the mills and the mill life, even
ll it meant that her man and she would break
Under the brunt of it: she had talked it through with him
IX hundred times . . . l,et her eyeballs split, her head swim
The window must have its Curtain !
Lately Steve had stopped talking altogether
X-Vhen he slumped in with his dinner pail and heavily
lflunehed over his food.
So Anna and the children let him bei
She was afraid to ask him why or whether
As he sat with his eyes glued
So Anna and the children let him brood.
Only sometimes he would suddenly look at them and her
In a ghastly hxed blur
Till a vast nausea of terror and compassion stood
Blunclering in her heart and swarming in her blood-
And she shivered and knew somehowthat it was not good.
And then it happened: Spring had come
'l',ike the silver needle-note of a hte,
Like a white plume and a green lanee and a glittering knife
And a jubilant drum.
But Steve did not hear the earth hum:
Under the earth he could feel, merely the 'fever
And the shock of roots oilf steel foreverg
April had no business with the pit
Or the people-call thenrpeople-who breathed in it.
The mill was Steve's huge harlot and his head
Lay between breasts of steel on a steel bed.
l,.oeked in a steel sleep and his hands were riveted.

T is with mixed feelings of trepidation and pleas-
ure that the 1938 Endymion is presented. Never
before has it been the aim of a Thiel publication
to devote its pages to the furtherance of poetry, or
the arts. However, to the Class of 1939, publishers
of this volume, the task which we have undertaken
has been both a pleasant and a worthy one. It is,
therefore, with sincere pride that we dedicate this
book to Mr. joseph Auslander, and to "Steel", the
work of his pen.
Both the poet and the poem are worthy of far
more tribute than we can pay here. Mr. Auslander
is one of America's outstanding younger poets--a
man whose art and whose vitality have been hailed
by those themselves great. I-le is a man who sees and
feels much of the truth of the world, and in his presen-
tation there is power. It is little wonder that Joseph
Auslander was chosen to fill the post of Consultant
in English Poetry, recently created by the library
of Congress at W3Shi1lg'fOH.
As for the poem itself, our enthusiasm for it is
only natural, for in its hne social idealism there is
a strong appeal to youth. No further praise is needed
here. It is our conviction that "Steel" speaks for
I - I, ,
- I -I I-.L .5
Dr. Joseph Auslancler, winner of more priies than any other American poet, has been
variously called "the white hope of American poetry" and "the I-lomer of our clayf, Still
in his thilfties, he has been writing poetry ever since his unclergracluate days at I-larvard.
VVhen asked what compelled him to his' task he replied: "I suppose one writes poetry
because one has to or bust." But the process is not an easy one, for he goes on to say:
"It kicks up a te1'ril'ic rumpus insifle of me . . . black Ere and hell's cats and a creche of
gohlin infants in the agonies of teething! But that docsn't mean I clon't sweat over it, I do!"
lVI1'. Auslanclei' has published seven volumes
of verse: Sunrise Trumjzens, Cyclops' Eye,
Sreel, Hell in I-Izzrness, Letters to Wamcllg No
Trzzvelcr Retmws, and his latest, More Than
"Steel" is from Cyclops' Eye, published by I
I-larger :X Brothers.
If you have ever ban' to do with steel:
The operzflaenrpla, the blooming-mill, the cranes
Howling under zz ffty-Lon land, . . . "

To those men and women who have given us of their time, their
intellect, and their personalities we express our deep appreciation.
It is an inspiring sight to see the members of the Thiel Eapulty, in
their academic robes, taking their places in the chapel service. They are
the guides of our college life. They are men :incl Women of the highest
calibre, vitally interested in sending out into the world students who have '
. . . . . 1
real contributions to make. It is their COI1Sta1'1t :um that students shoulcl 1
not only learn, but lCIl1'1'li to live.

On September I twenty-five men responded to Coach Stoeber's call, and donned the moleskins to work
and train for the enjoyment of playing a few football games, or parts of them. It is a wonderful feeling, as any
football player will tell you, to have your cleats dig into the sod, hear the thump of the Pigskin, and feel the
autumn breeze in your face once more. But he can also tell you of the killing sun, of the driving rain, of the
bitter cold slush and snow, of the complete exhaustion, of aching muscles, and the nausea of pain. ,All this is
football!-All this,-and more. The joy of winning, the loyalty to school, coach, teammates and self, the
courage of manhood, the thrill of battle-these, all of them, make red-blooded men enthralled to football.
"Let the toast Pass-"
Doll7 your har ancl lift your voice to it and to those who find enjoyment in playing it!

SUMMARY GF SEASON
After four or five weeks of preparation the season was
opened by a night game at Alfred, New York, where the
Thiel men were defeated by a strong and experienced Alfred
U. team by a lopsided 4o-6 count. A long pass from Lewis
to I-larter gave us our only score. For many of the fellows,
the lights of the Saxon Held were a new thing and perhaps,
or perhaps not, this had an effect. Alfred U. was one of the
few teams in the country which had an u11defeated season.
An improving Tomcat team won a close 7-6 game from
Clarion. Lewis passed to Davis for the touchdown, and
lVIcKinstry booted the deciding point. The Clarion team
was the only one met all season in which size and weight
were not on the side of our opponents.
Snow and rain driven before a cold wind was tl1e setting
of the Hiram game. A few breaks and the fine play of
Bloom, terrier quarter-back, were tl1e deciding factors in a
close and hard-fought game. Davis scooped in a partially
blocked pass and scored in the second quarter while Lewis
had plunged over an earlier six-pointer. Two intercepted
passes accounted for 'as many Hiram goals a11d a short break
away run brought the score 12-I9 with Hiram on top.
Homecoming!-The day wl1e11 tl1e returning alumni
become undergraduates for a time and become reminiscent of
by-gone days and games. Tug of war, parade, dance . . .
all were minimized by a thrilling and spectacular game with
WCSfl11i11SCCl'. A pass from Breckenridge was beautifully
handled by MClqi11Stl'Y, who scored while the game was still
young. The Titans tallied twice to make the score 14-6 at
the beginning of the final quarter. In a few n1inutes tl1e
crowd was on its feet, for a safety brought the score up to
8-14, and with a few minutes left to play Breckenridge
again passed to Davis, who crossed the marker to tie the
score. Although lady luck deserted us on the conversion
and the score remained 14-14, it was still a wonderful, hard-
fought, and thrilling game.
At Nleadville, Allegheny, for the first time in four years, overcame the Stoeber-coached
eleven. The 'Gators had the advantage in weight, speed, and experience, and took a sweet
revenge to the tune of 20-o. The Tomcats had the ball within the 20-yilftl marker three
times but were unahle to push over a score.
Our home schedule came to an uneventful close as Slippery Rock gained a I9-0 victory.
Although the Sroebermen had twice as many first downs as the Teachers, something
definitely was lacking. If one were superstitious, one might say the Slippery Rock "jimi"
was on us again, for we haven't turned in a good performance fer the past three years with
them. Onzflong break away and powerful end runs made possible the Rocket scoring.
An inspired and fighting Tomcat team turned a rather poor season into a very
successful one by thoroughly trouneing a powerful Grove City eleven, 6-o. The Crimson
and Wliire goal was ,threatened a ,number of times, but only one touchdown was forth-
coming. D. Breckenridge, after a sustained drive, plunged over for the six-pointer, In
spite of the cold and the wer the Stoeber charges pushed a heavier Grove City team around
to gain 16 first downs to 4 for the Lovelace men. Beating Grove City, our oldest and per-
haps bitte1'est rival, certainly climaxed the season for all, especially those seniors who were
playing their last game for Thiel.
We all realize the handicaps which surround Coach Stoeber and certainly muchcredit
and praise should be given to him. Too few appreciate to the full extent the high quality
and fine spirit of instruction which Coach Stoeber gives to Thiel. The full cooperation of
the hard-working nianagers, Scholl, Splane, and Paul, was appreciated by the players and,
surely, Coach could not have gotten along without them. We all pay tribute to the
seniors who have taken off their Blue and Gold jerseys and put up the cleared shoes for the
iast time. Captain Iosephsg signal-caller, Gerberdingg hard-hitting D. Breckenridge, Wilsoii,
Fetrerly, lVlorton, and Hilry , . . to you all, Thanks! Good-by! and Good Luck!

The Thiel Players, a group of students particularly interested in
drama, resent several three-act reductions and a number of OIIC-21Ct
plays throughout the year. Three outstanding presentations in the past
ear have been Another Lan mr e, The Late Christo her Benn, and
Y Z E
Another Language, by Rose Franken, is a psychological study of
family life. Stella's rebellion against the old family conventions and
customs of the Hallam family places her in a world apart-she speaks
:mother language. jerry, her nephew, tries to release Stella from! an
unappreciative husband, Vickie. The plot is alive and filled with humor
as Well as pathos. The curtain falls with love's reawakening in the lives
of Stella and Vickie.

"The Late Christopher' Bean"
The Late Christopher Benn, a play by Sidney Howard, was Produced
in the fall of this year. Christopher Bean was a New England artist
who, like others in his profession, never lived to realize his own great
genius. His Paintings, discarded as worthless by the I-laggctt family,
were kept by Abbey, who was Chris Bcan's friend and life-long scwant
to the l-laggetfs. Several scheming and avariclous art dealers from New
York reveal the greatness of the paintings.
lbsenls play, Peer Gym, is this year's Commencement production.
This poetic fantasy was woven out of the folklore of the IlllIIl1OlI,S native
orway. ne commen' on tae P ay ias Jeen ,mat i is iumorous, tent er,

and ironieal. Peer was a real person who lived in Gudbrandsdalin in the
18th century. lbsen colors his life to make him the cocky but loveable
young scamp, the social outcast, and the pitiful old man who has
learned the lesson of fidelity through bitter experience. The role of
Peer Gynt was played by James Gerberding.
Students are given ample opportunity to display their dramatic
abilities in the frequent one-act plays which are given during the year.

Mtlsical activity at Thiel includes both instru-
mental and vocal work. Instrumental activity is
under the direction of Professor D. Rees, who
received both his Bachelor and Master Degrees at
Thiel. He has had a wide range of experience both
in orchestral and choral direction, having directed
his own orchestra for many years. His most recent
achievement was attained as conductor of the Green-
ville Symphony during several successful seasons.

Rochester and who has done graduate work there recently,
has charge of the choral department.
Mtisic has long been a tradition at Thiel. The response
of the students to the extra-curricular activities offered in this
field has been marked. They seem desirous of gaining the
benefits given in this training. Especially to be noted is the
commendable work doneby tl.1e chorus, orchestra, quartette,
choir, and the girls' sextette.
The chorus has had a very successful season this past
year, having aided the Orpheus Club of Greenville in its
' . animal presentation of I-landel's Mcssizzh at Christmas time.

community. Their interpretation

has been heard in broadcasts over
Cleveland and Pittsburgh radio
stations, and has contributed con-
siderably to the cultural life of
the College. '
- The choir renders valuable service in the college chapel, leading the student
body in the musical portion of the Thursday Nlatin Services.
For the past few years the girls' sextette has had a prominent Place on the
Thiel campus. Recitals, broadcasts, and much work of the same type as that per-
formed by the boys' quartette are to be noted as the achievements of this

Action with Edinboro
Ever- co n H rl em mrzmzgers
Conch Iaclc Stoeber inaugurated basketball drills for
the Lutheran varsity Hoormen early in December. The
aspirants for the 1938 five were headed by four letter-
rnen from last year's Tomcat squad. This group in-
cluded Dave Clare, Iohn Breckenridge, Don Brecken-
ridge, and Al Vesper. ln addition both lim Rorabaugh
and Hollis Bear, members of last year's squad, were on
the 1938 edition. This group of experienced Tomcats
was augmented by several new players: Gene Doda,
Stan Fell, Lewis Chambers, Ray Bost, John Fetterly,
and lim Chain. Iohn Peters, veteran lccrcrman, joined
the team with the beginning of the second semester
and earned a regular forward assignment.
The opening game was contested with one of the
strongest Alumni squads gathered together in recent
years. Led by Labe Wzirclleg the grads hung up a
33-29 victory over the less 'experienced opponents.
However, the Stoebermen exhibited great form in their
next contest, marking up a decisive 33-30 victory over
ai strong Allegheny team. This exhibition of basket-
ball action was the high point of the season, as the
Tomcats out-played, out-fought, and out-scored the
stubborn 'Gator five. Al Vesper and Stan Fell stood out
offensively for the Blue and Goldg collecting I7 and I3
points respectively. The 'Fonicats made it two victories
in a row on the following Friday night in outclassing
Fenn College, 33-21. Breckenridge had a big night
for Thiel and collected a grand total of 18 points.

The first road trip for the Lutherans ended their
two game winning streak, as Slippery Rock defeated
them 60-42. The Rockets displayed line defensive
form, with only Breckenridge and Chambers able to
score consistently. In the following two games the
Stoebermen suffered tough reverses at the hands of
Youngstown, 36-26, and Clarion Teachers College,
31-28. On both occasions the Tomcats failed to exhibit
a consistent attack throughout the entire game, a factor
which turned the decision against them. On the fol-
lowing Tuesday, the Green and Wliite of Slippery
Rock marked up their second triumph over the Tom-
cats by a 39-2I count. Thiel played this game without
the services of Breckenridge, last year's high scorer,
who dropped out of school at the semester point. Iohn
Peters and Iim Chain were new additions to the squad
with the new semester.
The Blue and Gold passers narrowly missed an
opportunity to end their losing streak as they dropped
a 39-34 decision to a visiting Edinboro State Teachers
College quintet. Led by Peters and Vesper, the Tom-
cats outscored the' visitors in the second half, but were
unable to overcome the big first half lead. Another
had first half in their following battle with Allegheny
enabled the 'Gators to jump into an early lead and
defeat the Thielites, 30-23. Peters was high point
man in this second battle which evenccl up the count
for 1938. Youngstown College repeated their previous
performance in defeating the Lutherans, 44-27, and
making the seventh straight defeat since winning from
Penn early in the season. The Stoebermen next journ-
eyed to Cleveland to do battle with Penn College
basketeers. The Clevelanders earned a close 42-36
verdict in staging a last half rally. Gene Docla was
outstanding for the Blue and Gold. Clarion State
Teachers College hung up victory number two over
Thiel this year with a 46-34 count. Peters, with I3
points, led the scoring against the clever, fast passing
I . .
Bost Coach Stoebei
The climax of the basketball season was the traditional contests with Grove
City cagemen. At Grove City, the Crimson staged a brilliant second half rally
and were victorious by a 43-26 score. D. Clare played well for the Stoeberinen.
Finis was written to the 1938 season on the following Tuesday as the fast passing
and clever Crovers outplaycd Thiel to the tune of 47-34. Peters and D. Brecken-
ridge were outstanding in the I..UCl1CIf2l11S' improved brand of play.
The 1938 record of two victories and twelve losses is far from being impressive.
However, the competition which the Thiel cagemen meet is of the highest calibre.
The Tomcats are deserving of much credit for the Hne spirit and cooperation which
they have exhibited throughout the season. The Stoebernien may have been
out-played or out-scored, but never out-fought. Indeed Coach Stoeber, Nfanagers
lvlorton and Fuleki, and every Tomcat cagenian should be congratulated for up-
holding the Thiel tradition of playing hard and clean, taking the breaks as they
come, and never stopping their Hght.
The I938 season brought to a close the cage careers of D. Breckenridge,
Vesper, Rorabaugh and Fettcrly. However, Coach Stoeber will have a nucleus
upon which to build next year with Dave Clare, .this year's acting captaing Iohn
Peters, high scorer in 19385 and Doda, Chambers, Beat, Bost and Fell returning

The glamour and charm of campus coeds have long been familiarly
associated with the American college scene. Thiel feels justihecl in assum-
ing that it does not lack in feminine appeal what it wants in size. It is
only natural, then, that we should pause L0 pay special tribute to those
'fhiel girls who are reltresentative of this glorious tradition.
It was a convaratively easy task to elect ten outstanding girls, but
the somewhat ticlclish job of naming a winner from that groupvwas a feat
that any yearbook staff would hesitate to try. lt was here that Paramount
Pictures, Inc., came to our aid, and volunteered to select for us "The Mo5':
Personable Coed" at Thiel.
The selection board was made up of members of the cast and pro-
duction stalf of Paramountls latest college Picture, "College Swingf'
Included were Betty Gralale, George Burns and Gracie Allen, from the
castg Russell Patterson, famed artist who helped' design the sets for the

The intra-mural athletic program which is conducted each year
commands perhaps more student interest than any other extra-curricular
activity. Inter-fraternity and inter-class competition is sponsored to pro-
vide opportunities for all students to participate in a variety of sports.

held last year by the freshmen.

Each year il girl from the senior class is chosen by che student body
to reign as Queen at the annual Iune Pete. A similarly elected Mnicl of
l-lonoi' acts :is her uttendunt. Beauty, personality, and poise are the
lnnjor requirenlents of the Coeds who have been so honored.
Witlm Miss Frances Mai'y Leyshon us Queen, and Miss Ioannzi
Braden as Nlnid of Honor, one could not ask for this excellent tradition
to be better upheld. We salute ,you both!
T he Iune Pete is one of the outstanding events
of Commencement week. A spectacle of rnoclern
ancl ancient dances, it gives the students an op-
portunity to express themselves in a lighter vein.
Complete with music, costuming, and all the
colorful embellishments that go with pageantry,
it furnishes the many visitors of the clay with an
interesting glimpse of Thiel at its best. Both the
athletic and the dramatic departments are given
full reign to put their fullest expression into the
show. The climax of the celebration is the
formal crowning of the May Queen and het
Miss Genevie Canon, Wo111e11's Physical Eclu-
cation Director, and Dr. Ioseph H. lVleconnahey,
Director of Dramatics, are in charge of the Fete.
A large crowd, assembled to witness the event,
forms a huge semi-circular amphitheatreg and a
bright sun shining clown on Thiel's beautiful
campus provides a splenclicl setting for this pleas-
Tl-IIEL BOASTS OF Tl-IESE
Thiel's two exchange students, Esther LaValle of Lima, Peru,
and 'Wolfgang Schaper of Berlin, Germany, have helped brighten
the campus this year. Both like Thiel very much and Thiel likes
them. "Wolfie" has become a real American college student in
the short time he has been here. Esther's charming Latin-
Anierican personality has won many friends at Thiel. We native
students feel very fortunate to nave had them as classmates.
Both plan to enter the foreign service of their countries. VVe wish
them the best of luck, but are sorry to see them go.
The year 1937 marked the fourth anniversary of the creation
of the Thiel College Institute of Parenthood and Home Relations.
Created with the viewpoint of educating parents towards a better
understanding of the hoine and its obligations, the Institute has
advanced with the years. Each year finds several prominent
psychologists and child specialists in the list of speakers, and each
year has an increasing number of visitors from Greenville and
neighboring towns. The ilnstitute has been of great value to the
mothers and fathers who have attended, and all' look forward to
The Amelia Earhart Foundation is Thiel's great contribution
to America in the 1937-38 school year. A drive for S5oo,ooo to
build a memorial dormitory and endow a chair of science, it won
the admiration of thousands, including Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt,
the Honorary National Chairman. The Thiel Student Body sub-
scribed one thousand dollars to furnish a room in the new building.
A memorial to America's greatest woman flyer, whose father
graduated from Thiel and who herself was the recipient of an
honorary degree in 1934, is truly an example of the spirit of Thiel.
One of Thiel's outstanding presentations is the annual Science
Show. Sponsored by Tri-Beta, Phi Mu Chi, and the Science De-
partments of the college, the annual Science Exhibit has become
one of the main events of the spring. Each year a student is
selected to act as general chairman, and several assistants are ap-
pointed to aid him. The heads of the science departments have
worked hard with the students each year and have produced a
display that runs the gamut of modern college sciences. Exhibits
from the Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and MHEl1C1llZltlCS depart-
ments have helped both students and townspeople to understand
the working of a modern college science course.

ANYBODY CAN QUIT
Nearly all of us travel the uphill trail but it's the bull-clog grit
that keeps us climbing even when the Way seems blocked.
Saving money is also an uphill job but if you ever expect to have
any, you will have to apply your full strengtli with determination to
meet the imposing forces.
