Du ring our stay on this campus we have lived these scenes and in living them ivc have preserved in our memories the joys, sadness, friendships and associations, work and accomplishments that have been our experiences. Time may cause some of these memories to fade. When this should happen our pleasure will be increased as we leaf through these pages from our lives. W. J. Campbell, Editor I. H. Shankle, Business Manager T. J. Butler, Jr., Advertising Manager 941 Many phases of extra¬ curricular work can be noted in the pictures below. These organizations give us some¬ thing to aim for and, when acquired, something to be proud of. The body as ivell as the mind and spirit need train¬ ing. Therefore each of us find pleasure and relaxation in some form of athletics. 476C43 Mt V . 5 ■ Many are the times we have walked, yes, and ran too, through these scenes depicted here. Now they are so close to us we fail to notice that rue have become a part of them. Every stiident ivho attends a class on the campus leaves a mark or impression. Yes, a world is shaped by the people of whom it is composed. This has been our temporary world and in future years we will look back and remember and knoiv that this world also left its mark on us. Administration building as spring gets into swing. A thing of beauty at any time but glorious now. Look. Now it s winter and we trudge through slush and snow to make our classes. hide Q cenes This looks barren, doesn’t it? There are really very few times dur¬ ing the day that the campus appears deserted, so this is one to be remem¬ bered. The campus in the spring, summer, or fall is one of the beauty spots of the town. These scenes will ahvays be familiar to those men who pass them. i To Professor William A. Pfeifer, Head of the Engineering De¬ partment of Tri-State College, this book is fondly dedicated. Although there is no one more deserving of a title, Professor Pfeifer is never the less known to all as just " Bill”. It is his simple, good natured and sincere character that has won him so many friends. Never refusing a helping hand or a guiding smile to those in need, he has given more to all concerned than can possibly be expressed in this dedication. The graduating class of ’41 dedicates this book to Professor William A. Pfeifer, Head of the Engineering Department of Tri-State listen! the Plesiclent Perhaps at no time in history has a graduating class finished its work ready to go out into business and industry at a more momentous period. With the world in flames and millions of men striving to kill each other it is a most difficult matter for any young person to retain his sanity and preserve a normal outlook. The dislocation of the normal processes of life as we have known them are such that it creates uncertainty and fear of the future. However, the technical graduate of 1941 is for¬ tunate in that he has an opportunity to contribute to the development of the defense program of his country in its various phases and at the same time enter into the line of work in which he is interested and for which he is trained. The graduates of Tri-State College for this year are all of this class. We hope that each one of them may proceed to find his place in present day affairs to the end that he may contribute in the highest degree to the completion of the task which has been begun. PROFESSOR BURTON H. HANDY A.B.; AM. I PROFESSOR HANDY Chairman of Board %e ftoaic) oi Dkectote Perhaps the least evident of all the organizations in the school is the Board of Directors. Many of us never come in contact with this board and therefore seldom think of its existence. That does not mean, how¬ ever, that these men are not actively engaged in the business of the school. In fact it is this board that directs the policies of the school. Each man on this board is a graduate of Tri-State and has spent the greater part of his life in constant association with the school. For this reason they are undoubtedly more sincerely interested in the welfare of the school than any others. The policies adopted and carried out by this board are designed to further the interests of the school and therefore the students. These men are greatly respected by all who have been associated with them in any way. To them a great deal of credit is due for their work in behalf of the school. PROF. GEO. G. NIEHOUS PROF.

In addition to handling the regular business of the college, they are often called upon to perform special duties for the convenience of the students. Their readi¬ ness to comply to these requests for their services deserves the gratitude of all students on the campus.

Sure¬ ly this is an inspiring philos¬ ophy. However, in today’s perplexing era these words to many of us are only figura¬ tive and idealistic. Often we ask how happiness can be se¬ cured in our civilization of distorted and haphazard liv¬ ing. The present ruthless wars and the hard-hearted animosity between and with¬ in nations impart to count¬ less numbers a sense of help¬ lessness. Yet we feel instinct¬ ively that we are equal to any event—that within ourselves there is a power to surmount ALFRED LANGE President any difficulty. Each of us must realize that in a posi¬ tion high above human be¬ ings is a Power that controls the destiny of us mortals on earth. Let us turn to the Lord with faith in our hearts and a prayer on our lips. Let us learn that faith and prayer bring true happiness. Life can be beautiful. I congratulate the entire staff for the fine work they have done on this year book, The Modulus. It is truly rep¬ resentative of Tri-State Col¬ lege. I want to express gratitude and appreciation for the co¬ operation I have received from individual committees, our faculty advisor, and the entire Class of 1941 in plan¬ ning and working out our Senior Class program for th is year. Moreover, I wish, in be¬ half of this year’s graduating class, to thank the faculty for the fine education they have given us. Certainly their liberal assistance to us has made it easier to acquire a thorough education. Fellow graduates of the Class of 1941, thank you for the many friendships I have enjoyed among you.

Wind Tunnel mm The Institute of Aeronautical Sciences The Institute of Aeronautical Sci¬ ences is a national organization of Aeronautical Engineers. It has as members some of the world’s best and most famous pilots and engi¬ neers connected with aviation and its many professional fields. The institute publishes a journal designed to keep the members familiar with the developments and achievements in the aviation industry. We have had a chapter of the in¬ stitute at Tri-State for several years. This chapter holds a meeting week¬ ly. At these meetings various talks, such as up-wind turns vs. down¬ wind turns, aircraft with rotational wings, etc., are given. These talks are given by the members of the in¬ stitute and professors. We have a banquet every term, at which we have guest speakers from various fields of the aviation industry. This spring our guest speaker was an air hoste ss from the T. W. A. Airlines. The institute also has a field trip to various points of interest every spring. On these trips we visit the various aircraft factories in this part of the country, the various large airports in this district, and many other points of interest. The institute membership is not restricted to college students but is meant for the members of the prac¬ ticing professional fields. After a member graduates from college he is given a technical membership for the profession. This entitles him to the Journal and any other publica¬ tions put out by the institute. So come on all you Aeronautical engineers, let’s take the institute to the top of the world. Aeronautical Engineers in the making Twenty-three OFFICERS R. Hershey, President R.

WATSON Wellsburg, West Virginia SU SIONG JUNG Canton, China Aeronautical Society Chinese Student Club Twenty-seven Chemical Engineering Society Students taking chemical engi¬ neering at Tri-State have for many years foreseen the numerous advan¬ tages that can be derived when a common cause and interest are weld¬ ed into a society of the caliber that our present society now possesses. For many years the society func¬ tioned without any particular form of government and it was not until the fall of 1937 that a constitution was dawn up. Since then it has been amended as discrepancies have ap¬ peared and at the present time the society is conducted according to a very well developed set of specific principles. The chemical engineering society is relatively small because of the en¬ rollment of chemical engineers in school, but the spirit of the members makes it one of vitality and effici¬ ency. Meetings are bi-weekly and at each meeting our president and sec¬ retary endeavor to have as speakers, men directly from the engineering field who are in regular contact with the problems that future chemical engineers will eventually face. For meetings when a speaker cannot be obtained, the society usually secures educational motion pictures. Each term’s activities are climax¬ ed by a banquet and during the spring term as many men as possible attend the society’s organized field trip. This field trip has as its pri¬ mary purpose the study of actual processes and condition in the engi¬ neering field. Another very impor¬ tant purpose is to promote good fel¬ lowship and better understanding among its members. The field trip this year was down to Indianapolis. The society was invited to the state convention of the American Chem¬ ical Society which took place April 25 th and 26th. The society enjoyed a very suc¬ cessful year which can be attributed to the whole-hearted support of the members. The chemical society wishes at this time to extend congratulations and best wishes to all of its members and friends who are graduating. GERALD MOORE Ch. E. STEFAN J. SLANINA M.S., M.S., Eh. D. C.

In the Field Concrete Laboratory i Civil Engineering Society 4 8 C £ j Another eventful and entirely successful year has been thoroughly enjoyed by the Civil Engineering Society. Much pleasure as well as benefit has been derived by mem¬ bers, and on many occasions fellow engineering students, from associa¬ tion with the society. Meetings for the fall term of 1940 were conducted by Omer Kronen- wetter, president; Richard Firth, secretary; and C. W. McAlhany, treasurer. One of the highlights of the term was a combination inspection tour and final banquet held in Fort Wayne prior to the last week of the term. It was a new idea and proved to be very successful. During the winter term of 1941 the society functioned very smooth¬ ly under the leadership of the fol¬ lowing officers: President, Al Fange; secretary, Don Bell; treasurer, Ken¬ neth Ing. Mr. Ing rates a generous vote of thanks from the society for his un¬ selfish devotion to the organization and the offices to which he has been elected. He has been a very worthy member for nine consecutive terms. Mr. Fange in performing his du¬ ties as president endowed the society with a great amount of inspiration by promoting fine entertainment. Two motion pictures were cour¬ teously submitted for use by the Bethlehem Steel Company. One of these illustrated the process followed in the production of steel, and the other was of the construction of Golden Gate Bridge in California, one of the greatest suspension bridges in the world. These, as may be readily understood, were of great interest as well as instructive. Mr. Fange was also very successful in obtaining prominent and interesting speakers, one of these being V. J. Brown, chairman of the American Road Builders Association, and pub¬ lishing director of " Roads and Streets” magazine, whose topic was " Roads for Defense.” The final banquet was held at the Y. M. C.

Officers elected for the spring term were Ernest Thompson, president; Vincent Butler, secretary; and Victor Snapp, treasurer. All of these men are members in good standing. In concluding this brief annual sketch of our activities we wish to impress upon the minds of our present members and prospec¬ tive new members that the continual success and strength of the society depends upon their loyalty and complete co-operation. It is a known fact that an organization endows each of its individual members with strength, confidence and the ability to work with his fellow men. These are the tools neces¬ sary for complete success and no better time may be had for obtaining them than while in school acquiring the other essentials neces¬ sary to the preparation for a chosen profession.

Dramatics in ever My sliderule for a date A Tri-Stater Ground fliers nin Electrical Engineering Society Primarily, the purpose of the Electrical Engineering Society is to benefit and aid the students. This benefit is derived through many channels, prominent among them being the opportunity of meeting men from the industry, who are brought in by the society. Conver¬ sation with such men is always valued by the ambitious student. Splendid opportunities for practice in public speaking are afforded throughout the course of the week¬ ly meeting. Similarly, experience in executive duties may be gained by holding an office in the organization. Through the inspection trips spon¬ sored by the society a broader con¬ ception of Electrical Engineering may be gained. These are but a few of the num¬ erous benefits open to members of the society. These, in conjunction with the many others, combine to form a broadening influence which the electrical student cannot afford to overlook. A short resume of the past year’s work will facilitate a fuller ap¬ preciation of the society’s activities. On October 16, 1934, a group of electrical students met in the Engi¬ neering Building for the purpose of becoming organized, and about this group as a nucleus, the Electrical Engineering Society of Tri-State College was formed. During the past year the society has functioned successfully, ful¬ filling the object of its foundation by bringing its members in contact with many technical men in the field of engineering. The schedule of activities was completed by a field trip and banquet under the capable leadership of Mr. Cochran, presi¬ dent of the society. WILLIAM A. PFEIFER E.E., MS. S. D. SUMMERS E.E.

Short Wave Station Code Class Radio Engineering Society The Radio Engineering Society was founded for the purpose of uniting the Radio Engineering stu¬ dents among themselves as well as to acquaint them with the industrial world outside the college walls. This is accomplished by having outstand¬ ing men in the field of radio here to speak to the students. From these men we learn to correlate what we have gained from text books to that of actual practice in the field. It makes one on the alert to the subject matter that should be stressed in our course of study. The outside speak¬ ers sometimes bring slides or movies to illustrate their talk. Throughout the quarter we have one or two so¬ cial meetings where we have refresh¬ ments and discuss the plans of the yearly event of the field trip. The field trip is held during the spring term. The Radio Engineering Society holds radio license W9PMZ. As a special mention of apprecia¬ tion, the society is indeed grateful to Professor Leland S. Ax, who as fac¬ ulty adviser, has given time and ex¬ perience in our behalf. His organi¬ zation of the yearly field trip is the event of the school year for many of the radio students. The Radio Engi¬ neering Society is happy to know that he is with us. OFFICERS J. Edgburt, Secretary M. Westenhaver, Vice-President J. Ferla, President J. Foreman, Treasurer Forty-eight I HAROLD G.

CUMMINGS Salutatorian Fifty-one ti Mechanical Engineering Society Through the ages, since the con¬ ception of man, there has been a guiding spirit which has brought men of kindred ideas together. Since the first stone-age man discovered that by tying a leathern thong to a wooden handle and attaching a stone head he had an axe, went forth into the forest and met in it another stone-age man similarly equipped men could not afford to be enemies. Thus came about the first society. beginnings of Mechanical Engineer¬ ing. From these small beginnings grew the sciences of today. Down through the ages following the development of the sciences came the inclination of like profes¬ sions to band together, thus form¬ ing the beginning of societies as we know them today. It was only natural that men of that caliber, displaying early in the existence of the world an advanced mentality and knowledge of the sci¬ ences, should bond together in fra¬ ternal organizations of one sort or another. As the human race advanced, the axe developed into the sledge; then later came the crow-bar. The crow¬ bar was in turn followed by the shovel and thus came civil engineer¬ ing and its allied branches. The ap¬ plication of simple mechanics to crow-bar and shovel, and the evolu¬ tion of the wheel brought about the From this analogy it may be seen that a Society is, without a doubt, one of the earliest organizations known to man. The Tri-State Me¬ chanical Engineering Society is no exception to this rule. However, do not think for one moment that this society creaks with antiquity. On the contrary, its youth, its modern out¬ look, and its swift advancement is assured by its election of officers ev¬ ery term and an influx of new mem¬ bers. This society proves its far- reaching outlook by its acquisition of men prominent in industry and in close contact with present-day prob¬ lems who have contributed much as speakers for its meetings and its widely famed banquets.

The purpose of the society is to sponsor organized activities among the students of the School of Com¬ merce. Under the leadership of Robert Horton, the fall term activities con¬ sisted of a picnic, a lecture by Jo¬ seph Kolb, a Babson Institute grad¬ uate, and a successful banquet. During the winter term toboggan parties, held at the Pokagon State Park, were the season’s highlight. The spring term has a gala array of social and scholastic activities scheduled. Some of the outstanding events will be a field trip to Chicago and Detroit, a spring tea dance at Potawatomi Inn, and winding up the affairs of the society at the annual banquet. Under the guidance of President Jack Ellison a most suc¬ cessful term is anticipated. Fall term: Robert Horton, presi¬ dent; Richard Singer, vice-presi¬ dent; Kenneth G.

Representatives of each fraternity on the campus meet once every week to plan and direct activities that will benefit their chapters. Operating with the good will of the faculty, social functions and ath¬ letic contests are sponsored by the council. These diversions are neces¬ sary to maintain a healthy and sound mind and therefore go a long way in making better students. These men act with the guidance and sug¬ gestions of their chapters, still credit must go to them for their leadership and energy in supervising all affairs of the council. The Inter-Fraternity Council has grown to be one of the most effec¬ tive organizations on the campus which is a good indication that its members have been well qualified. Not only the members but also many others look upon the Inter- Fraternity Council with respect and admiration. Charles Oliver proved himself such a popular and capable officer that he held the office of President of the council for three consecutive terms. All Fraternity men owe him a vote of thanks for his fine handling of the council during the past year. Sixty-nine Alpha Gamma Omega Harold Francis, an outstanding student at Tri-State College, believ¬ ing that the Catholic students should be organized, took it upon himself to do the job. After many weeks of hard work, he brought together twenty Catholic students, outlined his plans, and thus Alpha Gamma Omega Fraternity was founded on January 8, 1938. A local Fraternity, Alpha Gamma Omega, met with dauntless fear the hardships encountered by any new organization. It progressed rather slowly at first, but with a true de¬ termination to drive forward, it made many achievements by the time of its first anniversary. The Fraternity had, at first, held its meetings in Newman Hall, but in March 1940 located itself on Pros¬ pect Street. With magnificent cooperation and an increase in pres¬ tige, the Fraternity moved to a bet¬ ter location, and into a much larger house, in the spring of the following year. Here at its present location, it has grown into one of the out¬ standing Fraternities on the campus. Alpha Gamma Omega promotes good fellowship among its members, provides a means for social enter¬ tainment, aids its members in prac¬ ticing their religion and participates in all Inter-Fraternity activities. The Fraternity has proven itself to be outstanding by winning the bas¬ ketball and football trophies this past season. In order to share the full rights and benefits of membership in Alpha Gamma Omega, each member must maintain a high scholastic average. This assures the Fraternity greater strength and infallibility. An important date in the future, is the Fraternity reunion, which will be held at Angola in 1943. We encourage all members to attend. To the old members graduating this term, Alpha Gamma Omega wishes great success in their field of en¬ deavor.

Lienesch Seventy-four Alpha Kappa Pi The Alpha Beta chapter of Alpha Kappa Pi, as it is today, is the de¬ scendant of two parent organiza¬ tions. The first of these Phi Lamba Tau, was established on the campus in nineteen hundred and twenty- five. Four years later a petition was presented to the officers and person¬ nel of a national social fraternity of high standing, and the following year Phi Lambda Tau became the Eta chapter of Alpha Delta Alpha. This organization was dissolved in nineteen hundred and thirty-five. Following the dissolution the fra¬ ternity became associated with Al¬ pha Kappa Pi, a fraternity having over three thousand members and a senior membership in the National Inter-Fraternity Conference. Alpha Kappa Pi, through the initiative and foresight of its lead¬ ers and members, has taken a posi¬ tion among the more progressive na¬ tional fraternities in this country. Many times throughout the year we are called upon for the approval of the admittance of new chapters. By virtue of this, the ambitions of pres¬ ent and future members, our fra¬ ternity will continue to prosper and grow larger and will assume its place beside the fraternities whose membership may be greater.

Lapp and Al Seventv-seven At Alpha Lambda Tau Alpha Lambda Tau was founded at Oglethorpe University in 1916. It was the first fraternal organiza¬ tion at that institution following its reorganization in the same year. Originally formed as the Alpha Lambda Club, it was later decided that the fraternity should become a national order, and was incorp¬ orated under the laws of the State of Georgia, as Alpha Lambda Tau. There was at first an idea that the fraternity would never go north of the Mason-Dixie line, but this was disapproved in the 1927 national convention, at which time a charter was granted to a group at the Uni¬ versity of Illinois. During the past few years, the fraternity has in¬ stalled chapters in Maryland, Mis¬ souri, Colorado and here in Indiana. There are now 21 active chapters and three alumni chapters, the lat¬ ter being located in Chicago, Birm¬ ingham and Atlanta. Psi Chapter was installed at Tri- State College on June 7, 1936, af¬ ter a successful petition by the Sig¬ ma Mu Sigma National Fraternity, which desired to expand into a larg¬ er national organization. A fraternal organization must, in order to be successful, have the com¬ plete cooperation of all members. Psi of Alpha Lambda Tau was for¬ tunate to have a foundation consist¬ ing of men that realized this fact and adhered closely to it. Down through the years, the portals of Psi have welcomed men of outstand¬ ing character, scholastic ability, ath¬ letic prowess and perseverance. Through their efforts the fraternity has risen to the heights of promin¬ ence among organizations on the campus of Tri-State College. We, of the graduating class leave Tri-State College with the knowl¬ edge that capable hands are control¬ ling the destinies of Alpha Lambda Tau. Fraternal life has imparted to us memories that will long be cher¬ ished, friendships that are priceless, and a deeper understanding of one’s fellow man. If one were to take the following ingredients: brotherhood, self-sacrifice, co-operation, and a dash of humor, mix well and com¬ bine them in a group of fifty young men, the result would be PSI of Al¬ pha Lambda Tau.

Middaugh Donald Busch Eighty-two Beta Phi Theta Beta Phi Theta Fraternity was founded at the Milwaukee State Normal School in November, 1917. It was the first social fraternity at the normal school. During the first successive years it flourished as a lo¬ cal organization. In 1923, plans were made for expansion, and when the first national convention was held in June, 1924, three chapters responded to the roll call. Since that time other strong local fraternities have become affiliated with Beta Phi Theta. The history of the Delta Chapter of Beta Phi Theta dates back to 1922. At that time, a group of young men organized " The Four Eleven Gang,” their purpose being the promotion of good fellowship. The organization became so success¬ ful that they decided to expand in order to afford other students the opportunity of enjoying this rela¬ tionship. It was at this time that Lambda Phi Epsilon was born. The membership of this fraternity grew, and recognizing one of the great needs of the students, opened the first fraternity house at Tri-State in 1925. In 1929, when the college recognized fraternities, the members of Lambda Phi Epsilon realized the advantages of national membership, and became Delta Chapter of the Beta Phi Theta Fraternity. Delta Chapter, now in its twelfth year of existence at Tri-State, has never lost sight of its ideals of its founders. Those chosen for brother¬ hood are men who have shown cour¬ age, initiative, and fortitude before our eyes. This policy of selection has insured lasting life and leadership for our fraternity. The list of brothers, past and present, who have attained leadership in activities and scholar¬ ship proves the worth of this policy.

Upon organiza¬ tion, it was known as Delta Theta Omega but in May, 1902, with re¬ organization and revision of consti¬ tution and ritual, the name Phi Sigma Chi was adopted. Due to the whole-hearted support of its mem¬ bers in numerous activities, the or¬ ganization has grown to such an ex¬ tent that it now boasts 68 chapters. In the fall of 1927, the Delta Ep¬ silon of Tri-State College was or¬ ganized and admitted to the portals of Phi Sigma Chi Fraternity. Ex¬ cepting a year absence while con¬ nected with another national organ¬ ization, the chapter has remained on the Phi Sigma Chi roster through the succeeding years. Being a fraternity man is a dis¬ tinction on any campus yet many non-fraternity men believe that pledgeship to a fraternity is just an opportunity for the members to take advantage of a pledge, to show su¬ periority. These thoughts are quite radical for even though the actions of a pledge may verge on the brink of foolishness at times, his actions tend to promote sportsmanship, de¬ termination, control and strengthen his ability to take orders, all very valuable assets to any college man. The Greek letter men have long ago proven themselves an integral part of college life, employing friendship and brotherhood as out¬ standing basic principles. Intimate fellowship with your fellow man is enjoyed to the utmost and nothing has surpassed the benefits, not only derived, but rendered, by a true fra¬ ternity man. The close cooperation required for a successful chapter in business, in sports, in social func¬ tions, and in scholastic work binds each member more closely than or¬ dinary acquaintanceship could ever hope for. After experiencing mem¬ bership in a fraternity, we all con¬ sider the time, the effort, and the money involved as an excellent in¬ vestment. The outstanding events of Phi Sigma Chi in the future are the na¬ tional convention to be held in Phil¬ adelphia, Pa., in August, 1941, and Delta Epsilon’s own spring festival and reunion at Kendallville, Ind., June 7, 1941. The latter event is an annual affair with Delta Epsilon and promises a success even greater than that witnessed in the past. To our graduating brothers, our brothers who have gone, and those leaving for other reasons, we extend our heartiest congratulations, wish¬ ing them all the success they deserve. And may we see them all together again on June 7.

Eighty-nine Phi Iota Alpha This organization was first estab¬ lished on the Tri-State campus in the year 1921, under the name of Club Hispano-Americano, for stu¬ dents from Spanish America. Six years later, it was legally instituted under the laws of the State of Indi¬ ana as the Alpha Chapter of Gamma Eta Alpha Fraternity. Through an intensive campaign of unification the Gamma Eta Alpha successfully united with the Phi Lambda Alpha Fraternity and be¬ came its Eta Chapter. The driving force that brought about this union was the similarity of ideals that these two organizations held toward Latin-American consolidation. Then uniting our efforts with theirs we kept up our campaign to spread the formation of new Chapters over the southern universities. This activity culminated during the annual con¬ vention held on December 26, 1931, in Troy, N. Y., where the Phi Lamb¬ da Alpha merged with the Sigma Iota, another strong Spanish organi¬ zation with chapters in the south, to form the present Phi Iota Alpha Fra¬ ternity, of which we are the Iota Chapter. At present we are the strongest Spanish organization in the United States, with ten well organized chapters and several new prospects. Our fraternity does not only com¬ prises the United States but it also includes every Latin American country, each one representing a zone, and the various zones in a body make up the Latin American Union. Our aims are, besides fostering among our members a better sense of duty and study, to create that Latin atmosphere which is an in¬ tegral part of our far away homes, and to prepare our members to carry out in the future that great ideal, ultimate goal: " The political, social and economical union of all Latin American countries.” Jorge Gutierrez Ribal, President Andres Cuevas Lopez, Vice-president Gabriel Martinez, Treasurer Nicola Escarcega Perea, Secretary Ninety Ramon Sepulveda Gonzalo Trigo Andres Cuevas Luis Cordero Gabriel Martinez Carlos Martinez Roman Mendez Jorge Guitierrez Ribal Carlos Lang Jorge Ribal, President Andres Cuevas, Vice-President Gabriel Martinez, Treasurer Nicolas Escarcega, Secretary Frank Pena Jose Trigo Ninety-one League of nations Chile, Spain, Peru Bathing beauties Viva Villa Tall, dark, and handsome Srta from Peru Family reunion Mutt and Jeff Little Sir Echo Hold that pose, boy I) Ninety-two Three of a kind As usual—loafing South of the border A car and no place to go Studying—what a laugh! Saturday afternoon Chile con carne and lima beans Iota chapter Ninety-three Sigma Mu Sigma Alpha Chapter, Sigma Mu Sigma, was founded at Tri-State College on Good Friday, March 25, 1921, by three students of Masonic affiliation who saw the fine possibilities in store for the furtherance of true Masonic Fraternalism. With the aid and combined enthusiasm of nine other Masons, who were also students on the campus, this chapter was duly formed. In 1924 this and other chapters of Sigma Mu Sigma were chartered as a National Fraternity and became a member of the Inter¬ fraternity Council. After twelve years of successful endeavor, through powers beyond their control, Alpha Chapter, Sigma Mu Sigma, along with all other chapters, except Iota, were forced to become inactive. In 1940 Alpha Chapter, under the ef¬ forts of loyal alumni members, was re-formed. In the same year, this chapter joined the present Inter-fra¬ ternity Council. Since that time Al¬ pha Chapter has enjoyed a very suc¬ cessful career. Once again there is a Masonic Fraternity for the further¬ ance of true Masonic Fraternalism on the campus of Tri-State College. The aim and function of Sigma Mu Sigma on the college campus is to create a well balanced college fra¬ ternity. It is based on scholarship and aims to develop the intellectual side, for good scholarship is largely a matter of interest and application. Good fellowship is sponsored at all times, and membership requirements are very high.

Ninety-eight ARTHUR DENTON T re as u rer JAMES BUTLER Vice-President ALFRED LANGE President JOHN McGUINESS Secretary One hundred Student Council The purpose of the Student Council is to promote a representa¬ tive student government of all the societies and fraternities on the cam¬ pus. This body is composed of a senior and junior member from each or¬ ganization represented. It is this group that plans and sponsors such intra-mural sports as exist on the campus. They also elect the editor of the Modulus and conduct the senior class election. Several attempts have been made in the past years to organize an ef¬ fective Student Council but because of an unwieldy constitution and poor leadership the body received no support or cooperation from the students. In the fall of this year the consti¬ tution was rewritten and under the leadership of Al Lange began a new and more useful regime on the cam¬ pus. This council brings about a closer relationship between the dif¬ ferent societies and the fraternities. Our stay in school is altogether too short to spend time over hard feel¬ ings. Congratulations are then in or¬ der for the Student Council of 1941 and its officers for laying the foun¬ dation for a better and more respect¬ ed organization in the future. One hundred one Alpha Beta Alpha Robert Horton, President Ivey Shankle, Treasurer J. Pielick, Vice-President This Honorary Society, which was founded in September, 193 8, was created to award outstanding scholarship among the students in the School of Commerce of Tri- State College. Commerce has always entered in¬ to every phase of our natural exis¬ tence, from ancient times down to the modern day. Business has seen the rise and fall of governments, has witnessed internal strife, and has been a very important factor in the moulding of nations. In this mod¬ ern business age there is a great de¬ mand for men of patience, integ¬ rity, and initiative—in short, the type of men who uphold the ideals of Alpha Beta Alpha. their studies with greater dili¬ gence and perserverance. To be eligible for election to Alpha Beta Alpha, a stu¬ dent must be registered in the School of Commerce and pursuing a course qualifying for the Bachelor of Science Degree. The student is required to maintain an average grade of 92 or better for the preceding four terms prior to his election. At the beginning of each term a list of eligible candidates is submitted to the society, and the four candidates with the highest scholas¬ tic standing are elected to member¬ ship. Among the students of the School of Commerce the Alpha Beta Alpha Society stands for the ideal in cam¬ pus organizations; brotherhood and friendship, a well balanced social program, and the maintenance of high scholastic records. Under the grateful guidance of Professors H. R. Hoolihan and H. W. Hoolihan, the society serves to help its members maintain their scholastic standing and also to en¬ courage future members to pursue FALL TERM C. Perkins, President W. Plummer, Vice-President D. K.

Englehardt, Treasurer There are always men who have the determination, desire and ability that gives them distinction in their own field. This achievement brings great personal pride and gratifica¬ tion. However, recognition of such an accomplishment increases its re¬ ward a thousandfold. Chi Epsilon was founded in 1929 as a means of giving this recognition to Chemical Engineering students who by evi¬ dence of their work show themselves to be worthy of this honor. The fraternity also serves to bring about a closer relationship between these students who have shown a deep interest in chemistry. By lim¬ iting the membership to fifteen, it has created a competitive spirit, and in turn raised the standard of schol¬ arship to its present level. Membership in the fraternity shows not only tangible evidence of excellence in one’s work, but also a personal honesty, at times not wholly apparent in classes. The fraternity is indeed fortunate in having as advisor, Professor Ger¬ ald Moore, honorary president, and head of the Chemical Engineering Department His valuable advice is truly appreciated by Chi Epsilon. The other honorary members in¬ clude Professors Slanina, MacFerrin and Newnam. The responsibility to the purposes and reputation of the fraternity au¬ tomatically falls upon the shoulders of each member. May we never fail to fulfill the duties and trust that the fraternity has placed in us. One hundred five Tau Sigma Eta Honorary Engineering Fraternity Scholastically, Tau Sigma Eta represents the highest pin¬ nacle to which the engineering student at Tri-State may aspire. Tau Sigma Eta Honorary Engineering Fraternity was founded in January, 1930, by the Engineering Society of Tri- State College. Election to mem¬ bership was to be a reward for outstanding scholarship among Tri-State engineering students. In April, 1930, a charter was granted to the fraternity by the state of Indiana, thus permit¬ ting Tau Sigma Eta to function as a local collegiate honor fra¬ ternity. Membership in the fraternity is limited to those students ca¬ pable of meeting its rigid stan¬ dards. To become eligible for membership a student must be registered in the College of En¬ gineering, he must have carried a minimum of twenty class hours per week, and he must have had an average grade of B or better for four terms or an average grade of A for three terms. At the beginning of each term a list of students that are eligible for membership is sub¬ mitted to the fraternity and from this list a maximum of seven is elected for membership. Once elected to membership in Tau Sigma Eta it is necessary to maintain the same high scholas¬ tic standing in order to keep this privilege. Tau Sigma Eta stands for the ideal in campus organization; brotherhood and friendship, a well balanced social program, and the maintenance of high scholastic records. OFFICERS J.

Although one of the newest fraternities on the campus it has made remarkable achieve¬ ments in the field of amateur radio. Rho Epsilon is an honor society, having for its purpose the encouragement of experi¬ mental radio activity. Any truly great organization must have some firm foundation up¬ on which to grow, hence the motto Crescat Scientia, mean¬ ing " May Knowledge Increase.” In an effort to comply with our high standards, we are en¬ deavoring to make great studies in the high frequency field. At the present time the ultra-highs are not satisfactory for con¬ stant long distance communica¬ tions but with experimenta¬ tions along this line, we have hopes of introducing new equipment that will tend to stabilize this portion of the ra¬ dio spectrum.

Modulus Staff This book, issued annually, por¬ trays the life of the students of Tri- State. Campus and school scenes, organizations, societies, activities and experiences represent college life, and college life in later years become one’s fondest memories. It is with this thought in mind that the Modu¬ lus is published. This year more than ever, the Modulus is a product of the student body since more of the work was done by the staff than probably has been done by the staffs in past years. This is true especially of the pho¬ tography, the greater percent of which is student work. During the few months in which this staff operates, the complete year book is organized, edited and pub¬ lished. It is also the duty of the staff to secure financial assistance and to market the book. While most of the members of the staff were inexperienced in this line of work, with the aid of faculty ad¬ vice and past procedure, they soon learned their jobs and so during the course of the year, accumulated knowledge and experience that should be of great value to them in later years.

One hundred twelve Kismet, Student Publication The Kismet in 1941 attempt¬ ed to find out what the students wanted in their publication. We found there were two fac¬ tions, those who wanted a tech¬ nical paper, and those who wanted a paper of a more flip¬ pant character. Like the fool who didn’t know it was impos¬ sible and went ahead and did it, we have tried it, we have tried to steer a middle course and at¬ tempt to satisfy everybody. For human interest we have had Vox Studentis, a column in which we have attempted to get geographical cross sections of student opinion on vital ques¬ tions of the day, both on and off the campus. The technical side was sup¬ plied in a good part by mem¬ bers of the faculty who wrote articles on industrial problems and who were well qualified to pass an opinion again of their experience in the field. This coupled with President Handy’s comments on timely topics gave the paper an added touch of dignity and formed a publica¬ tion which we can say in a modest way we enjoyed making for you. Miss Margaret Yoder is an associ¬ ate Dramatic Club member, and is active in the Alumni Players. Miss Yoder has played " Olivia” in " Twelfth Night,” " Titania” in " Midsummer Night’s Dream,” " Ce¬ lia” in " As You Like It” and is shown here as " Nerissa” in " The Merchant of Venice.” At present Miss Yoder is teaching art and dramatics at Galadet Col¬ lege in Washington, D. C. She is, needless to say, most successful in her work. Top row (reading from left to right): Richard Myers, Leland Schoff, Dixon Waite, John Stange.

One hundred fourteen College Dramatics Although dramatics as such have always flourished on our campus, the Tri-State College Dramatic Club, as an organization, had its inception on th e campus in 1930 and cele¬ brated its tenth anniversary with a three-day Drama Festival in May this year. A Marionette show oper¬ ated and created by club members, a performance of the old English farce comedy, " Gammer Gurton’s Needle,” and a unique history of the club by members made up the first day’s offering, followed by the an¬ nual Dramatic Club Dinner Dance at the State Park Inn. A recital by Cornelia Otis Skinner climaxed the festival. The senior play, " What a Life,” will be produced in June. At Easter Chapel the one-act play, " The Other Apostles,” was presented. The Dramatic Club proves its worth and reason for existence by adequately producing the best of collegiate drama. Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dramatic fraternity, has been actively functioning for four years on our campus with Robert Horton as president. Tri-State boasts an outdooi stage. Greek in design, it i transformed once each yea into a living thing of beauty with scenery, lights and stu dent actors who, in appropri ate costumes, act one o Shakespeare’s plays. " The Merchant of Venice was presented last year on a: elaborate scale, and played t record-breaking audiences o both nights. There was n rain! There was a full moon It was a success! These plays are presente to students and townspeopi free of charge. Many studem and instructors from nearb colleges, towns and cities ai in attendance. The plays ha attracted state - wide atter tion. Scenes Well Played The annual Christmas Chapel play was a new and interesting project this year, and drew the largest student and town audience ever assembled in the auditorium. " The Toy Shop” by Wilde was pro¬ duced by the club for the children of the community, but parents and friends were interested to such a de¬ gree that seats were placed back scenes. A few of the dolls that came to life are shown on the bargain coun¬ ter stage. " You Can’t Take It With You” was the Dramatic Club’s project play this year. It was most success¬ ful and a neat sum realized. Our as¬ sociate members, the Misses Gloria Aldrich, Emagene Hendershot, Lou¬ ise Helme, Julia Jane Jackson, Vir¬ ginia Care and Mrs. Lucille Emer¬ son with Velma Triblett worked valiantly and shared the laurels earn¬ ed. The new club sweaters, blue with yellow increment, were official¬ ly worn by Ushers Myers, Taylor, Kensinger, Canon, Pucci, Waite, Malouf, Jackson, Graybill and An¬ drews. Professor Shank directed. Edward Burke handled the publi¬ city and William Cannon was busi¬ ness manager. Dixon Waite had the lights and Meldon Caswell was in charge of the stage with Robert Horton on properties. A difficult play well done! Advanced T raining Primary T raining Contact A C.A.A. student’s dream Glee Club The Tri-State College Glee Club was organized in the fall of 1930 by the Board of Directors and is still sponsored by that body. Member¬ ship in the Glee Club is open to all students who can qualify. The first year this number was small, numbering twelve or thirteen. Ihe club has steadily grown in membership and ability until the present time. The club now boasts a male chorus of about twenty-five and a gills chorus of about eleven or twelve. The Glee Club is in constant demand for concerts in and around the school. During the year they have sung several times over WO WO, the Westinghouse station, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Because of the intensity of the courses at this school it is difficult to find time for many extra-curricular activities. A great deal of credit is therefore due these men and women for devoting part of their free time to the Glee Club. They bring much pleasure and credit to the school. Professor Harshman, in directing this club, demonstrates not only his ability as a musician but also as an organizer. We, of the student body, thank Professor Harshman and the members for the Glee Club. One hundred twenty-one College Music plays an important part in everyone’s life whether he is a musician or just a listener. People at parties dance to music; people at home listen to music; soldiers at war march to music. Every¬ where and in every walk of life music is used to help forget the worries of the world and to make everything bright. In December, 1938, a group of music lovers gathered to form a band to give the students of Tri-State College music for their activities. The constitution was drawn up, officers elected, music and instruments purchased and the band swung into full stride. At the close of the second year, we find the band one of the finest organizations on the campus. No home basktball game was played with¬ out the band to play and yell for the team. The band also helped the student council put the pep sessions over by furnishing music for pa¬ rades. Last but not least was the trip to Olivet, Mich., to help spur the team on by furnishing music and cheers for them. Ioday, Tri-State College Band is one of the few organizations on the campus whose members are given letters by the school as an award for their work. Orchids aren’t enough for Professor Harshman, who helped the band reach the place it is today. One hundred twenty-two Band H. Mould, J. Ullet, R. Burner, W. Hopkins, J. Acre, K. Gouch, M. Walck, J.

The aims of the club are: to help Canadian students in their common interests, both socially and scholastically, to bring about a better understanding with our American neighbors, some¬ thing very necessary in these troub¬ led times, and to uphold the consti¬ tution of the club. The club is very appreciative of the support it has received from the college and the city, and has won for itself a fine standing among the other organiza¬ tions on the campus. All Canadian students are elibi- ble for membership, and are urged to give their whole-hearted support to the advancement of the club. At the end of three consecutive terms of membership an attractive shingle is given to each member. Meetings are held every two weeks during each term. These assemblies take the form of business meetings, and social gatherings. The club does not tolerate political or sectarian differences so that discussions are Rufus Rumfeltd, President Duncan Black, Secretary Dalton Howe, Treasurer more freely carried on and a fuller knowledge of the matter obtained without personal difference being a handicap. The Canadian Club of Tri-State College is affiliated with the Asso¬ ciation of the Canadian Clubs of Canada. This affiliation makes it possible for the association to select and send internationally known men to us for club banquets. It also gives the club members privileges in other Canadian Clubs throughout the con¬ tinent and provides that members of the club automatically become members of the Canadian Club at home. To the members of the gradu¬ ating class of 1941 the Canadian Club extends its sincere congratu¬ lations and best wishes.

L. DRUCKAMILLER Coach Varsity Basketball The season of 1940-41 was Tri- State’s fourth year for basketball. The team won seven games and lost eight in the toughest schedule ever played by a T-State squad. They played teams such as Toledo Univ ersity, Notre Dame, Central State Teachers and many others which are rated as tops. One of the highlights of the season was the game with Notre Dame. This was a hard- fought game and every man on the team was in there giving his all. Milt Dvornay was awarded a trophy for making the highest percentage of foul shots. Next season promises to be just as good, with a fine bunch of men re¬ turning, so let’s every one get behind the team next year and really boost them. One hundred twenty-eight A trophy was awarded this year to the men considered by competent judges to be the most valuable man on the team. The factors considere d in awarding this trophy were sportsmanship, scholarship and the player’s attitude while on the floor. Congratulations Bill Gamber for being chosen as the most valuable man on the team.

It was well received and enjoyed by the participants and the first inter-fraternity football may, therefore, become a yearly ac¬ tivity. The Alpha Gamma Omega fra¬ ternity put up a fine team and should be congratulated for being champions on the campus. Front row: Judsinski, Butler, Danneker, Nocerino, Lieber Back row: Zonatta, Ogglieti, Lutostanski 4 gM Inter-Fraternity Basketball This is one of the sports that the fraternities really go in for. The games are played as a preliminary to the varsity games. Although some of the boys were out of condition, they all played their hardest and always came back for a little more. This year the cup was won by the Alpha Gamma Omega Fraternity. They played off the finals with the Phi Sigma Chi. It was an exciting game and was well worth the effort put forth by both teams.

All the teams were pretty evenly balanced which made the entire season one of uncertainty and therefore one of excitement. Congratulations to the champs.
