For twenty years Evansville College has talxen ordi- nary youth and produced extraordinary leaders and citizens. This service requires the utmost of re- sponsible planning.

SECRETARIES Dorothy Clewlow Marcia McClung Bea Arney Behind every smooth running and efficient organization are certain people who do a goodly share of the routine and clerical work for the powers that be. Such is the case at Evansville as elsewhere. Bea Arney, a gradu- ate of the class of '38, sees that all of R.E.O's notices about tuition and such are placed in strategic positions that 'can't well be over- looked. She also has charge of the college bookstore, and is kept busy selling stamps. There may be no future to selling stamps, but Bea claims that she doesn't need one! Dorothy Clewlow, also a grad of last year's class, guards the "sancta sanctorium," the president's office. She took over the administrative key- pounding job after Mrs, Crask, who had sur- vived the dictations of three presidents, with- drew last summer. Marcia McClung is proba- bly best known as the determined young lady who makes out those official looking, yellow tuition bills. As bookkeeper for the college she is for the most part kept well occupied, but finds some time for traveling and sports. THE STUDENT-FACULTY FEDERATION 31 When the time for the annual stu- dent government elections came last spring, even Roy Houses staunchest supporters gave him only an outside chance of becoming president of the student body. The traditional political alliances gave the Phi Zeta-Sig group an advan- tage of more than thirty votes over the Pi Ep-Castalian combination which was backing him. For the first time in several years however, traditional po- litical alliances were broken, and Roy was elected president of the Student Government Association. While his administration was not sensational, it was conducted in a manner which justified the confidence fplaced in him. For the first time in re- cent years, the Student Council was kept active, and the regular SGA as- semblies were well planned to arouse student interest in school activities. One outstanding feature of his admin- istration was the lack of partiality and political bias which may, in part at Roy C. HOUSE least, explain the minimizing of society President of the Student Government Association friction SO Prominent in former Years- The Student-Faculty Federation The student government at Evansville College is an institution of which the stu- dents and faculty have long been proud. The college has often received national recognition from groups studying the various forms of student government through- out the country. The constitution of the Student-Faculty Federation has been praised for its lack of insignificant details and its leniency in giving the students a large amount of power in determining policies of conduct around the campus. As is stated in the college handbook, the purpose of the federation is to "enable the students and faculty of Evansville College collectively to direct and control the life and work of the college in such a manner as to promote most effectively the aims of the college .... " The membership in the federation consists of the faculty and the students, each as a separate group within the organization. The eight committees for public speech, publications, fine arts, religious life, public occasions, student welfare, ath- letics, and social life handle to a large extent routine problems coming under their field, but the chief governing agency is the Administrative Board. This group, with the president of the College as chairman and the three deans and the three officers of the Student Government Association as members, determines the duties of these committees and may decide as to the validity of any action by one of them. 32 is ..,. .,,, MA.,-,ss "----- - -ir Probably the most outstanding of the board's contributions this year were the well planned emphasis weeks, devoted to various phases of life which present problems not included in the specialized courses of many students. Special emphasis periods were conducted for problems concerning religious thought, vocational guidance, leisure time activities, family relationships, and citizenship. Authorities on these problems lectured before the regular student assembly, panel discussions includ- ing both faculty and students as members were held, and special consultation periods were provided. I ln order to get a better understanding of student opinion on various campus prob- lems, a special discussion meeting was held with the presidents and two other rep- resentatives of each fraternity and sorority. In addition to these and other projects sponsored by the board this year, the other routine functions necessarily performed by this body served to occupy their atten- tion during the greater part of the year. Athletic awards were approved, committee appointments were sanctioned, permission was given to the unorganized students and to the elementary education students to form clubs, special study rooms were selected to relieve congestion in the library and to provide places more conducive to studying, seniors were granted a request for certain desired senior privileges, new rules for society initiation were drawn up, and a recognition assembly for Campus Notables was arranged. The results of the activities of the administrative board have affected the majority, if not all, of the students in the college in the course of the year, yet few know directly of its work. Many of the students do not even know when its meetings are held, but because of the intense interest in politics, most of them do know how their representatives are selected. The three officers of the Student Government Associa- tion, as has already been indicated, serve as the student representatives on the board. They are selected by a vote of the student body from candidates who are named in a primary election held one week before the final vote.

F. F. COMMITTEES Duties ol the Student-Faculty Federation committees are for the most part routine. Their pow- ers have been designated by the Administrative Board and may be changed by that body. Mem- bership on the committees is equally divided between the students and the faculty, each having three representatives. The chairman of each committee, who is always a member of the faculty, and the two other faculty members are appointed by the president of the College. The six students who are named in the annual spring primaries as candidates for the three offices of the Student Government association, name the vice-chairmen of the committees, These vice-chairmen then, along with the three officers of the association form the Student Council, which names the remain- ing student members. The six students who named the vice-chairmen of the eight committees were l-toy House, president of the Student Government association, Minnie Lane, treasurer, Virginia Koehl, secretary, Yale Trusler, Dorothy Skelton, and Betty Iohnson, their opponents for the offices. Chief duties or responsibilities of the committees are: Athleticse-supervising all athletic contests either inter-collegiate or intra-mural, advertising all athletic events, recommending to the Ad- ministrative Board nominees of the athletic director for awards, Fine Arts-promoting cultural inter- ests in the College, arranging weekly Fine Arts assemblies, Public Speech-determining eligibility rules for participation in contests and productions of the department, handling of financial ends of productions, Publications-supervising budgets of both the Crescent and the Linc. naming candi- dates for the posts of assistant editor and assistant business manager of the Crescent and the Linc: Public Occasions-handling college publicity, upholding traditions by public ceremonies, Beligi- ous Life-arranging religious Chapels, co-operating with Y.M.C.A., Y.W.C.A., and Double Alpha club in promoting religious thought, Social-supervising social program, sponsoring homecoming, Welfare - investigating petitions for scholarships, aiding in student employment. - Promotion and Public Occasions Religious Life Henry Luerssen, Martha Blythe, Prof. Walker, Glenn Kaetzel, Susanna Goldsmith, Prof. Cope, Dorothy Skelton, Dr. Reeves Dr. McKown, Prof. Marchant, Alfred Johnson I Social Publications Franlc Kleiderer, Mrs. Springer, Anna Blaclcer, Jessie Kellams, Dr. Van Keuren, Mr. Olmsted Dean Morloclc, Dean, Yale Trusler lvor Campbell, Edward Grabert S.

Yale Trusler President Kathryn Wills Vice-President ' ' Rachael Yokel Secretary Edward Grabert Treasurer SENICRS As a class, this year's seniors were the best organ- ized on the campus. Under the direction of Yale Trus- ler, who was serving his second straight year as their president, they carried out an active and well planned social program in addition to carrying out successfully all of the traditional senior customs. Senior supper meetings, held once a month, served as purely social affairs, or as business meetings as the occasion demanded. Two dances, one each semester, were sponsored by the class, with the second semester all-school dance being acclaimed one of the most suc- cessful of the year. The senior social committee which planned these events included Chairman Iames Craw- ford, Ronald Robinson, Bettye Miller, Frances Forster, Anna Blacker, and Iohn Schnabel. Bert Miller, Phyllis Parker, and Bettye Miller planned the annual senior assemblies, Ruth Brown, chairman, Rachael Yokel, Mary Emily Halbruge, Howard Selm, and Vernon Bowen selected the gift which the class according to tradition presented to the Collegeg Kath- ryn Wills, Roy House, Dorothy Skelton, Clifford Stone, Mildred Flentke, and Yale Trusler were in charge of commencement week activities. 38 RECOLLECTIONS Roy C. House No Linc would be complete without some little tale of fond recollections, dating from the hour we first entered EC's portals to the day of that black-robed, solemn march down the aisles of the Coliseum. Do you remember that first registration day, the confusion, the uncertainty, the various entrance exams, that empty feeling in the pit of the stomach, and the early efforts of the "Kingfish" from the Dakotas to control the frosh elections? Virgil Heis- tand was finally selected temporary president and a short time later Norm Emge took over the presidency of the class. Carleton Keck became vice-president, Betty Anne Eckler secretary, and Bill Kueker treasurer. Our class was not a large one, only 117, nor was the semesters attendance so promising, but we were looking for- ward to great times. Remember how we adopted green caps on our own initiative? Football got off to a good start that year with a 13 to 7 victory over Rose Poly. We experienced our first formal social gathering at Pres. Harper's reception. November came, and with it Homecoming and the first big college dance. Football ended with four decisions pro, five con, and then basketball was upon us, with another opening win over the Oaks. The Aces got their first taste of Big Ten competition that year, Ohio State and Indiana both taking their measure, but not easily. Holidays soon were at hand, and then came the first introduction to semester finals. The third week in the second semester was pledge week with all of its back slap- ping, and then followed the Hell weeks with variations of the same. Before long, somebody began agitating around and EC had a short-lived chapter of the Veter- ans of Future Wars. Spring was not long in coming, and a lot of the freshman men got their first introduction to formal dress at the society formals. After the usual political turmoil at the spring elections came finals and then vacation. The summer months passed quickly fhaven't they all?l and by a slick piece of po- litical maneuvering, or something, Cleon Brown was our sophomore president. Dr. Smith took over the administrative helm and Prof. Morlock became dean of men. Iack Lomax collided with Herbie Wey of Indiana State and both ended up in the hos- pital. Valpo trounced the Aces 6 to U in the season finale to start EC on its famous scoring famine. Semester finals were washed away by the flood, which is one of the few good things you can say about that event. Hjortsvang came down to us from the north and started the choir on its steady climb to fame. Thurman won the S. G. A. presidency that spring, and Maudie Hug- ger was chosen May Queen. As we commenced our junior year we found that our ranks had dwindled to al- most half the original number. Some had left for engineering school, some for med- ical training, and some had just left. Yale Trusler began a two year reign as presi- dent of the class the was re-elected this year too, you knowl and the women got all of the other offices. Ruth Brown was vice-president, Frances Forster secretary, and Mildred Flentke treasurer. The Athletic Board of Control was formed in the fall, and Iohn McCutchan and Howard Selm became the first student representatives. Prexy's induction ceremonies were finally conducted, with more than 100 colleges and universities represented at the ceremony. The first Homecoming Queen was selected fCecile Hovdai, and the bonfire was set off a night before schedule. ln the spring we transformed the drab Coliseum interior into a thing of beauty as Evansville co1lege's first Iunior Prom, with Anna Blacker reigning as queen, made its bow. Then we come to this, our final year. A number of things have happened that we won't soon forget-that first touchdown in the Wabash game, Homecoming and the dance following, the new spirit that has been born on the campus, the second Iunior Prom, Senior Week and the usual commencement activities, and then the mixed feelings of joy and sorrow as the day drew near. 39 Betty Baker B.S., Secretarial Science.

Donald Todrank President Kathryn Schneider Vice-President Fred Blackburn Secretary William Kuekef Treasurer JUNIORS Last spring, a group of sophomores left Evansville college's first Iunior Prom convinced that one of the aims of their class the following year should be to put on a prom that would not only equal but excel the first, and as the Linc was about to go to press, it seemed as if that aim was to become a real- ity The prom queen had already been named by Ioe Cook, judge in the contest for the first Iunior Prom queen, and in addition a prom king had been named, arrangements had been made to hold the dance in the new Rotherwood Avenue armory, negotiations were being completed for the services of a band from Chicago, and a campaign to sell 200 tickets to the event was getting underway. General chairmanship of the prom was retained by Donald Todrank, class president, Malcom Bawell was in charge of the king and queen selections, Arthur Fritz handled prom pub- licityg Fred Blackburn, Bettye Iohnson, Kathryn Schneider, and William Brackett were in charge of ticket sales, Dorothy Schmitt supervised the decoratingg Bill Kueker, class treas- urer, was financial chairman. The candidates for Prom Queen included Bettye Iohnson, Wilma Brackett, Kathryn Schneider, Mary Nan Coxon, and Frances Wolf, Edgar Katterhenry, Everett Northcut, Robert Slaughter, Donald Todrank, and Malcom Bawell vied for the honor of being king. The prom was the only real activity of the class during the year, but it occupied the attention of the officers and the class as a whole throughout the year. 52 Nina Lee Abshire Walter Adler Estelle Arnetle Newell Bailey Gladys Booher Iay Brown U Nellie I.

Iohn Hull, leader of the class during the previous year, surrendered the presidential gavel to Vance Hartke, who defeated Robert Reising by a narrow margin in the race for the class presidency. lean Theby, Connie Pietzner, and Ray Hauck were named to assist him as vice- president, secretary and treasurer. A sophomore social committee of Robert Reising, Charles Caniff, Iohn Hull, Crayton Mann, Margaret Lehman, Eunice Henke, Iune Ham- ilton, and Iean Theby arranged the first closed class party of the year. One of the initial duties of the class, which was accepted without reluctance, was that of keeping the frosh in line. A court for freshmen who failed to observe the sophomore edicts was held early in the first semester. Iarnes Chilton, as prosecuting attorney, represented the sophomores, while Defense Attorney Iames Dixon argued in favor of the offenders. ln most cases small fines and added restrictions were placed on all who were declared guilty, and all were. In the radio quiz contest, "The Battle of the Classes", the sophomores failed to measure up to expected standards and ended in fourth place. As a group, the sophomores were one of the most active of the classes., being well represented on all college activities. Outstanding for their work in athletics were Francis Hess, who received the Kiwanis award for being the most valuable football player, and Wetzel Wag- goner, who with Hess received Little All-American honorable mention. 56 George Becker Anne Bennighof Iris Buck Mary L.

Treasurer Everett Cope Vice-President FRESHMEN The class of l942, with one hundred and fifty students on its mem- bership roll, was the second largest freshman class ever to enter the portals of Evansville college. Local students composed a large percentage of the membership, and graduates of Bosse and Reitz high schools, with 'two representa- tives apiece, won all the offices in the election for temporary class of- ficers. Frank Russell and Dale Phares of Bosse were elected president and vice-president, respectively, while fra Faith and Betty lane Rice were named secretary and treasurer. However, in regular election held during the first part of the second semester, only Frank Russell was successful in retaining his office. Another Bosse grad, Everett Cope, was chosen vice-president, Garnetta Butke and Edith Mae Mathews, both of Central, were elected secretary and treasurer. The social life of the freshman class was for the most part organ- ized by Gamma Delta, the freshman girls' society, which sponsored several parties, including a proposed snow frolic that, even though held in Ianuary, turnedrout to be almost a mid-summer picnic. The freshmen proved themselves to be superior to the upperclass- men in at least one branch, by defeating all three of the upper classes to win the radio contests called "The Battle of the Classes." Continuing a custom revived the lyear before, sophomores required all freshmen, men and women alike, to wear green caps and to enter the administration building through the side doors only. While the second year students succeeded in finding "goats" for their freshman court, most'of'the class observed the rules without much dissention until after the traditional freshman-sophomore push-ball contest, when the sophs' vigilance relaxed. 80 Y .

During the past two years, in addition to making two ex- tended tours, the choir has made numerous appearances locally and in nearby towns, yet it has never once failed to win the whole- hearted approval of its audience. Newspaper critics who have covered the concerts have not been lax in their praise for the group, for Prof. Hjortsvang, the conductor, and for Prof. Browne, who has accompanied the choir on both of its tours, as violin soloist. On the second annual tour, the choir gave fourteen concerts, including recitals at Mor- ganfield, Sturgis, Madisonville, and Hopkins- ville, Kentucky, before singing at Vanderbilt university in Nashville, Tennessee. Two other concerts were given in that state, one at Chat- tanooga and one at Knoxville. On the return trip appearances were made at Berea college in Berea, Kentucky, Aurora and Patriot, lndi- ana, Louisville, Kentucky, New Albany, lndi- ana. Singing and traveling occupied the ma- jority of the students' time on the tour, but choir members found time for a little sight- seeing, They climbed Lookout mountain, vis- ited Norris dam, and saw the Hermitage and the Iefferson Davis monument. Choir officers during the past year were Lowell Seacat, president, lris Buck, vice-presi- dent, Barnett Sinnett, secretary-treasurer, Con- nie Pietzner, librarianp Susanna Goldsmith robe chairman, Clifton Niederhaus, platform chairman.

With less than fifteen interested players as a nucleus, he began his plans for increasing student in- terest in the band and increasing its instru- mentation. Largely through his own efforts, Director Schnabel has succeeded in developing a con- cert organization of forty-one pieces that has presented three well-received concerts in the past two years, in addition to playing at home athletic contests, pep assemblies, and other school events. S The concert band pictured above is com- posed ot both students and non-students, with the college musicians comprising somewhat less than half of the membership, but it is the hope of student members of the band that campus interest in the organization will de- velop to the point where its members will all be college students. This year, concerts were presented both se- mesters, the first semester concert being given Feb. 2, and the second semester appearance being made May l4, both concerts being held in the college auditorium. ilu-lg T H Seated at the table, Everett Cope, Betty lane Rice, Tom Trimble, Frances Forster Chidingl, Martha Schmitt, Frank Parker, Maryrose Roach, lean McGinness, standing, Dr. Van Keuren, Iohn McCarty, Roy House, Bettye Iohnson, William Shafer, Max Thompson, in the lower corner, Bryant Dawson, Linc Business Manager, and Ivor Campbell, Linc editor. ln the back of the book you will find the pictures of the fourteen students selected by the faculty as Campus Notables for 1939. lf the faculty can have its notables, so can the Linc, and here we go. First of all we nominate Frank Kleiderer, who handled all but a very few of the photographic assignments this year. Working with a minimum of equipment he has turned in a really fine piece of work, so he's our number one nominee. Number two spot goes to Bill Shafer, F. Wfs right hand man, who was officially known as photo-contact-man. Until Bill got into the habit of running a taxi for freshman women, he put in a great deal of time and energy on the book. Connie Pietzner and Boy House, who did everything but sell ads, are next on our list. Then too, we can't overlook the only one to get in his copy without being asked twice, so we include our freshman editor, Everett Cope.

SEVEN SISTERS I MZ' DRAMATICS Seven Sisters, a Hungarian folk comedy, was the only major student production undertaken by the College Thespians this year. The three act comedy was presented lanuary l8 in the college auditorium, under the direction of Miss Pearle Le Compte. The play, which dealt with the efforts of a certain Widow Gyurkovics to marry off her seven daughters, had the usual happy comedy ending of "boy gets girl." The widow, portrayed by Catherine Kessler in a most motherly way, taught her children the domestic arts, and gave each of them an enticing dowry. Yale Trusler, who starred as Count Horkoy, ingratiated him- self with the family, and in order to win a bet with Mitzi, sought to marry off the three oldest girls within a year. Wilma Brackett, as the coquettish Mitzi, flirted very convincingly, and put on one of the outstanding performances of the evening. Supporting players were lay Brown, as Colonel Radvianyp Clifton Niederhaus, as Gida Radviany, Bernice Schnacken- burg as Katinkag Vance Hartke as Toni Teledi, Virginia Koehl as Sari, Frances Forster as Ella, Wilfred Susott as Lt. San- dorffy, Warren Lear as Ianko, Ellen Witherspoon as Klara, Iessie Kellams as Terka, Phyllis Parker as Liza. 72 DRAMATICS DOWNWARD BOUND Downward Bound was presented before the fresh- man and sophomore classes of Central high school, and was enthusiastically received by that group. The one-act skit has as its theme the reactions of an American couple to the news of the sinking of a ship. The couple, Marie and Henry DeStoffen, were portrayed by Eleanor Rake and Alfred Iohnson. Others in the cast were lames Crawford, Ships officerg Arthur Fritz, Purserg Arnold Holstine, Tailorg Elsie Wiseheit, Stewardessg Arnold Brockmole, Sailor. The play was directed by Miss Dorothy Rothrock who has been active in assisting Miss LeCompte with other student productions the past three years. She also served as president of the Thespian society dur- ing the second semester of the past year. Ellen Wither- spoon was property manager. Costumes were handled by Arnold Brockmole, who was also a member of the cast.

Emory Pulling Debate Coach l939 Oratoricdl Representative DEBATE The outstanding feature of the 1938-39 de- bating season was the success of the team at the annual Manchester college invitational de- bate tournament. For the first time in the his- tory of the College the debaters finished the tournament with a winning average! The af- firmative team of Roy House and Ivor Camp- bell won four out of six contests, while the negative debaters, Emory Pulling and Edward Grabert, won three and lost three, giving the team a tournament record of seven wins as against five losses, a record that compared very favorably with those of other teams. All other debates on this year's schedule were non-decision, but in two debates with Harvard, audience change-of-opinion polls were taken, and while the results were no positive test, they favored the Evansville teams in both cases. In the first debates of the season, Bernard Wintner, Donald Todrank, Edward Grabert, and Vance Hartke represented Evansville in a novice debating tournament at Franklin col- lege. Each team in this tournament competed in three non-decision debates. Other debates included dual encounters with Manchester col- lege, Rose Poly institute, and Cornell college Cla.J. lay Brown and Arthur Fritz also saw ac- tion in these contests. The subject for debate was "Resolved that the United States should cease to use public funds Cincluding creditl for the purpose of stimulating business." The subject proved to be technical in certain respects, with a back- ground in economics, as well as a knowledge of recent and proposed remedial legislation, being necessary for successful debating. Valu- able assistance was given the squad by Prof. Long, head of the department of economics, who analyzed the question from an economic standpoint, giving in conclusion his own opin- ions on the subject and referring the group to other authorities. On the basis of work in intercollegiate de- bating this year, Bernard Wintner, Donald To- drank, and Edward Grabert were awarded membership in Tau Kappa Alpha, national honorary forensic fraternity. Emory Pulling represented Evansville college in the state oratorical contest for the second straight year, using as the title of his discus- sion, "Man, the Forgotten." This year's contest was held at Manchester college. Arrangements have been made to hold the event in Evans- ville next year. ORGANIZATIONS 5 As officers of the Women's Council, Margaret Lehman, Nina Lee Ab- shire, Frances Forster, Betty Miller, Wilma Brackett, and Marian Red- man have played an important part in governing the social life of the College women, WOMEN'S COUNCIL Upon enrollment in the College every woman becomes a member of the Women's Council, an organization founded in November, 1925 under the supervision of Dean Lucy I. Frank- lin. Its purpose throughout the fourteen years of its existence has been to promote the social, intellectual, and moral interests of the women of Evansville college. Each year the Women's Council fosters the organization of Gamma Delta, the society tor freshman girls, and their first social event of the year is a party for that group early in the fall. The most important activity of the council is the May Day Festival which is presented annually sometime in the month of May. Features of the festival are the dances by the girls of the physical education department, the Maypole dance by the junior class girls, and the crowning of the May Queen. This event is followed by a reception for the juniors and seniors in the men's lounge. Council officers for 1938-39 were Betty Miller, president, Nina Lee Abshire, first vice-presidentg Margaret Lehman, sec- ond vice-presidentg Frances Forster, secretaryg Wilma Brackett, treasurer. 76 D+ Y. W. C. A. The Y. W. began the year with the largest enrollment in its history, the membership totaling over one hundred. In order to give everyone an opportunity to actively par- ticipate in programs and activities, each member chose the committee on which she wished to serve, and programs dur- ing the year were presented by those committees. ln the tall, senior members of the cabinet attended a conference held at Franklin college as training for their duties. The Talitha Gerlach tea given tor a Y. W. C. A. worker in China was very successfully and well attended. This year the Y. W. is planning to send a delegate to the Y. W. C. A. summer conference at Lake Geneva in Iune. Marian Redman, president, was assisted in directing the activities of the organization by Mildred Flentke, vice-presi- dent, Bernice Schnackenburg, secretary, Rachel Yokel, treas- urer, Susanna Goldsmith, Iris Buck, Margaret Lehman, Ruth Brown, Bettye Iohnson, and Maryrose Roach were chairmen ol the program, music, worship, art, social, and books and movies committees respectively. Adrienne Tirmenstein served as vice- president the second semester replacing Mildred Flentke who completed her college work. President Marian Redman attracts attention as she addresses t he Y. W. C. A The Linc photographer gets a study of emotions at a Y.M.C.A. meeting Ed Grabert illustrates his point with his hands as other Y,M.C.A. mem- bers listen with varying degrees of interest. House is ready to take ex- ception, Chilton is amused, Cope stares into space, Dixon meditates McCarty winks at the camera and Lear doesn't know what to think. Y. M. C. A. The main theme of the Y.M.C.A. discussion programs this year was "the relationship of the natural sciences and their developments, to the college student." Highlights of the series were talks by Dr. Olaf I-lovda, Dr. Alvin Strickler and Dr. Floyd Beghtel, followed in each case by a discussion period. They spoke of developments in their respective fields of physics, chemistry and biology. Dr. Miller of the United States Health Board presented some facts concerning the latest discoveries in medicine. An active social program was carried out in addition to the regular discussion meeting and included occasional breakfasts at the College oven, swims at the downtown Y.M.C.A., and a joint Christmas party with the Y.W.C.A. The organization sent Edward Grabert as a delegate to the state Y.M.C.A. conference in Richmond, Indiana, during March and plans to send Oral Fisher to the Lake Geneva conference this summer. First semester officers were Charles Tyler, president, Wilfred Susott, vice-presidentg Frank Parker, secretary, George Koch, treasurerg Arthur Fritz, social chairman. During the second half of the year, Wilfred Susott replaced Tyler who resigned as president and Alfred Iohnson took over the vice-presidency. Other officers retained their posts as did Prof. A. B. Cope who was faculty sponsor of the group throughout the year. The College Y.M.C.A. is connected with the local unit and membership is extended to all Evansville college men who have an interest in the Christian work of the body. 78 Above we have proof that righteousness pays As ministerial students all of these men, excepting of course Dr McKoWn receive tuition dis counts. They are Double Alpha members Warren Lear Charles Tyler Russell Davis, Dr. McKoWn, Glenn Kaetzel George Koch Edward Grab ert, Iames Dixon, and Iames Chilton DOUBLE ALPHA A study of ministerial codes of ethics was the major problem under consideration during the past year of the Double Alpha club for ministerial students. Discussion periods centered around the book by Mueller and Hartshorne, Ethical Dilemmas of Ministers. and although the various leaders introduced a wide range of opinion, an attempt Was made at the end of each period to arrive at some definite conclusions With which to formulate a ministerial code of ethics. Club members had an active part in leading these programs, but they were aided greatly by a number of outside speakers, including Pres. F. Marion Smith, Dean I. E. Morlock, Dr. E. M. McKoWn, Dr. W. T. Iones, Dr. H. A. Keck, and Rev. Richard Denbo. First semester officers of the group were Emory Pulling, presidentg Edward Grabert,vice-president, Iames Chilton, sec- retary, and Bervie Scott, treasurer. They were succeeded by Iay Leatherman, president, Wilbur Budke, vice-president, George Koch, secretary, and Warren Lear, treasurer. Wilbur Budke served as program chairman for the year, and Dr. McKoWn was faculty sponsor. Activities for the year included numerous social events, con- duction of the Holy Week services, and presentation for one week of the Sunshine Hour, radio program sponsored by the Deaconess Hospital. 7C O T M. meets for annual function, the taking of the Linc: picture The organization for out-of-town men, com- monly known as the O.T.M., is one of the younger organizations on the campus, having been formed only last year. The purpose of the organization is to provide a connecting link between those who have graduated from out-of-town high schools, and to provide a group that can meet some of the common problems confronting their number. One of the major projects of the group during the 1937-38 school year was the investigation of the possibility of establishing a dormitory at Evansville college. No direct action was ob- tained, but the club hopes to press further con- sideration of the matter as soon as feasible. Meetings are held at irregular intervals dur- ing the year, with a varied social program of- fering Variety from their discussion meetings. Annual activities include a joint O.T.M.- O.T.W. party held in the fall in the men's lounge, a Christmas caroling party to faculty homes, and a stunt at the traditional ali-cam- pus sing and stunt night in April. This year's stunt was a skit satirizing a Faculty Dames' party. Each class is represented in the club's system of officers by a representative who becomes a vice-president of the organization. Class rep- resentatives during the past year were Ed- ward Grabert, senior vice-president, fay Leatherman, junior vice-presidentg Ferdinand lvferta, sophomore vice-president, Clarence Kelly, freshman vice-president. Charles. Guard was president of the group and Prof. fames Morlock, the faculty sponsor. 80 Evansville College brought them to Evansville. The O. T. W., an organization of Evansville college women Whose homes are not in the city, has a slightly different specification for members, but corresponds very closely to the O. T. M. As a matter of fact, the O. T. W. was founded first and then the men took their cue to organize from the Women, as was indicated on the preceding page. The Out of Town Women's club was founded on December 2, 1936 by a group of women stu- dents of the College, with Miss DeLong, dean of women, as faculty sponsor. The purpose of the organization as suggested by its founders was primarily to "bring together in campus social life the college Women who are stran- gers in the school and city." Meetings are held at irregular intervals to plan the club's social program. During the past year a number of parties were sponsored by the group including several potluck suppers held at residences of members, a hike followed by a Wiener roast, the traditional Christmas party and the caroling trip to faculty homes with the O. T. M. A valentine party in the men's lounge and a party at the home of Miss DeLong completed the social program for the year. Miss DeLong, who has been with the organ- ization since its founding, again served as faculty sponsor. Officers of the organization consisted of four vice-presidents, elected from andrepresenting each of the four classes. Phyllis Parker, Martha Blythe, Eunice Henke, and Gladys Cooper filled these four offices dur- ing the past year, representing respectively the senior, junior, sophomore, and freshman class- es. 81 THE UNITED STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION For the first time in the history of Evansville College the unorganized students on the cam- pus have attempted to organize, Led by Wil- liam Comiskey, a group of unorganized stu- dents requested permission of the administra- tive Board to form a club, and late in the fall term the club was formed under the title of the Unorganized Students' association. Although some pointed out the discrepancy in the title, many of the group preferred the name. The title was finally changed, however, to the United Students' association. The purpose of the group as set forth by a committee that met with Prof. Walker, sponsor of the club, was to promote participation in college activities. According to Comiskey, it was hoped that this group would reach those students not connected with any fraternity or sorority on the campus. There are some stu- dents at Evansville college, he pointed out, who are for various reasons unable to join one of the societies. He indicated that many stu- dents were working full time and carrying only a few hours of college work. These students and other unorganized students felt a real need for the group and formed the nucleus of an organization that they hope will be permanent. First officers of the United Students' associa- tion were William Comiskey, president, Iay Brown, vice-president, Margaret Lehman, sec- retary, and lane Truman, treasurer. The organization met regularly during the ten o'clock period on the second Tuesday of the month. In addition special meetings were called by the executive committee whenever special business was to be considered. Although every unorganized student is a potential member of the association, its official enrollment at the present time includes only twenty-five students. Next year the officers hope to increase that number to the point where nearly all unorganized students will be included. Members who have paid dues in the organization and who have been active in its Work included: Anne Bennighof ....... ........ C larence Killion Gladys Booher .,.,......,. ........,.,.

M argaret Ploeger After the society pledging period had been changed from the first semester to the second, there was a feeling on the part of students and faculty that a group was needed through which freshman women could become ac- quainted with each other and with the various sororities on the campus. In the fall of l927, Gamma Delta, a first semester sorority for freshman women, was established in response to that need. The society is annually organized by the Women's Council, which brings the group to- gether in its first social event of the year. After the election of officers the freshman group is independent, setting up their own program each year according to the desires of the members. A dance in the men's lounge followed the official organization of the society on Octo- ber 4. Mildred Morgan had been elected presi-- dent, Hilda Wahnsiedler, vice-presidentg Mar- garet Ploeger, secretary. The first social event of the year sponsored by Gamma Delta itself was a tea dance in the men's lounge December 8, with Mildred Morgan and Hilda Wahnsiedler in charge of arrangements. The concluding social event was a lanuary Snow Party. Decorations in har- mony with the theme of the party were planned by Katherine Suhrheinrich, Mildred Morgan, Eileen Bruner, Ruth Loebs, Elizabeth McCarty, Betty Lant, Ethel Morehead, and Hilda Wahn- siedler. The group disbanded at the close of the first semester. The majority of the members pledged to one of the three sororities with the arrival of the pledging season. ,....,,,.-A J N bww HOME ECONOMICS CLUB Very few students at Evansville college are aware that there is a Home Economics club, until several months of school have passed and the group is ready to initiate 'new members. When that time comes however, few students have enough control over their curiosity to refrain from' asking why all those freshman girls are going around the halls in white smocks, and why they are selling home made cake. Then the Home Ec club comes into its own, for there is many a student who, having eaten some of their cake, will never forget their club and the great future it has before it! The coffers of the club are annually replen- ished with the proceeds of a sale of puddings before the Christmas holidays. Several social events were held in addition to the regular meetings, but what was perhaps the outstanding feature on the program was the sending of a delegation to the Home Eco- nomics Association convention in Indianapolis. Ruth Brown, Lois lones and lris Buck, accom- panied by the faculty sponsor Miss Nichols, constituted the local delegation. Ruth partici- pated in a panel discussion at the convention, and lris played a piano solo. Active Members Dorothy Armstrong ....... ....... G race Wellmeyor Eileen Bruner .....,......... .........

On October 24, all of the girls in the department were invited to Mrs. Springer's home for a spaghetti supper, plans were then discussed for the formation of a departmental club. The organization, which is semi-social and semi-professional, was founded for the purpose of stimulating common interests among stu- dents in the secretarial field and making con- tacts with persons actively engaged in busi- ness. All women in the department are eligible for.membership. Regular monthly meetings have been held at which club members have had an opportuni- ty to meet people interested in what may pos- sibly be their future work and to learn some- thing about the actual work, experiences, and problems of modern business women. A court reporter, a newspaper woman, and secretaries from Mead Iohnson, Hoosier Lamp and Stamping Company, and Sunbeam Manu- facturing Company have been guest speakers. Several members of the organization, upon invitation by the Woman's Rotary club, ush- ered at the Ieanette MacDonald concert in April. Q ln May, Mrs. Springer and several mem- bers of the club attended the state convention of the Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs, which was held in French Lick. The club plans to petition for junior mem- bership in the organization. Ac Nina Lee Abshire, Aurelia Allen ........ Betty Baker ........ lean Baskett ....... Martha Blythe .......

NEWMAN CLUB Under the leadership of Father I-Iolloran, su- perintendent of the Reitz Memorial high school, Catholic students at Evansville college have formed an informal, discussion club that has patterned its Work after that of the various Newman clubs throughout the country. The group was originally intended to have become a part of the Newman club movement but has not yet completed its organization ac- cording to Father Holloran, who received his appointment as leader of the group from Bishop Ritter of Indianapolis. Newman clubs, named in honor of the late 't'050',.. nj 86 Cardinal Newman, have as their purpose the instructing of Catholic students in matters ol faith and religion. The club at the College had a series of lectures on courtship and marriage and the ceremony of the mass. The group met on Tuesday morning during the period devoted to special meetings, and with Father Holloran as leader had informative group discussions following each lecture. All students of the Catholic faith were invited to participate, and although the number varied from time to time, all in all, approximately twenty-five students took part. 4 ASSOCIATION FOR CHILDHOOD EDUCATION A student branch of the Association for Childhood Education, national professional or- ganization tor teachers ot young children, was organized last October under the supervision of Miss Lucille Iones. Phyllis Parker was elected president ot the group which is known as the Evansville Col- lege Association for Childhood Education. The association includes all students of elementary education and cooperates with the city branch ot the A. C. E. The group met once each month for a busi- ness and social hour. ln November Mr. Alex Iardine spoke on visual education at a meeting in the women's lounge. The Christmas party was held at Miss Iones' apartment Where the members exchanged gifts and sent presents to poor children ot the city. One ot the highlights came in Ianuary when the city A. C. E. invited the college A. C. E. to a studio exhibition at Washington grade school. While there the guests were invited to participate in all of the art activities. Ioint meetings were also held during the next two months. ln February the city branch gave a tea in the children's room at Central library for the College group, and in March a guest day was held at the College, where movies made in the city schools were shown. At the April meeting Miss Iones gave an interesting report of her experiences at the na- tional A. C. E. convention held in Atlanta, Georgia. The concluding event of the year was the out-ot-door picnic in May at Maryrose Roach's camp, where plans were discussed for the coming year. Members Margaret Bass ....,..,.,,.,.............

Events during the past year have served to prove the correctness of his prediction, for a tennis club has been formed, the sport has been carried on with better organization, and tennis has been made a major sport at Evans- ville college. Taking the suggestion of the coach, the four returning members of the l938 squad, Iohn Armstrong, Arnold Brockmole, lvor Campbell, and Wilfred Schroer, planned and organized a club known as the Evansville College Tennis club. A membership tournament held in the fall provided the stimulus for joining, and thirty members were enrolled. Monthly meetings were held, at which the future of tennis as a varsity sport soon became the major consideration, In an effort to put ten- nis on a more practical basis, regular team practice sessions were organized and the club secretary was instructed to check attendance. As a direct consequence of this move, more interest was aroused on the part of both the team and the school, and at the end of the T. ee tor, the first official college championship. C. season the Athletic Board of Control voted to recognize tennis as a major sport, with letter and sweater awards as an added incentive for further good work. Iohn Armstrong, seeded number one player, captured the fall membership tourney without the loss of a set, defeating Arnold Brockmole in the finals, l3-l l, 6-0, 6-l, and by virtue of this victory became the first official college cham- pion. Several tournaments have been attempt- ed before, but always in the spring, and each time rain had held up play too long to com- plete the contest before the closing of school. The club plans to make the fall tournament an annual event. Club officers were john Armstrong, presi- dent, Wilfred Schroer, vice-president: lvor Campbell, secretaryg Everett Cope, treasurer, Arnold Brockmole, Tournament chairman. The club membership list includes john Arm- strong, Arnold Brockmole, lvor Campbell, Wil- fred Schroer, lack Hargan, Robert Scheitlin, Ira Faith, Roy House, Walter Adler, Yale Trusler, Lester Ewing, Wilfred Iarboe, Everett Cope, Frank Russell, Kenneth Moxley, Herman West, Maynard Libbert, Frank Haas, William Shafer, Charles Lippoldt, Barney Sinnett, Max Thomp- son, Bill Kueker, Mel Baskett, Chris Maglaris, George Becker, Earl Roesner, Wilborn Beer- wart, Robert Reising, Scott Blackwell, Chester Lynxweiler, Earl, Erbacher, and Revere Peters. HONORARIES 89 john W. McCarty, Ivor Campbell, john Schettler, Ronald Robinson. PHI BETA CHI Phi Beta Chi, local honorary natural science fraternity, was organized in March, 1932, for the pur- pose of stimulating interest and achievement in the fields of natural science. More than sixty mem- bers are now listed on its rolls, including faculty members: Dr. Alvin Strickler, Dr. Floyd Beghtel, Dr. Olaf Hovda, Prof. Guy Marchant, and Mrs. Ima Wyatt. To be eligible for admission a student must be at least of junior rank in the College, have a major in one of the natural sciences, have attained a grade of A in at least fifty per cent of the hours carried in that subject, and have marked creative ability. The fields of concentration upon which admission is based include physics, biology, chem- istry, and mathematics, with the Greek letters for the first three of these sciences constituting the so- ciety name. Charles Wallace served as president for l938-39. Dr. Strickler is permanent secretary- treasurer. Members Mabel lnco .......... Karl Schaaf ............. ........ M ildred McCutchan Lawson Marcy ..

THESPIAN SOCIETY A satisfactory performance in a major role or several appearances in minor parts in stu- dent dramatic productions will make an Evans- ville college student eligible for full-fledged membership in the Thespian society. After his admission has been approved by the active members, he may thenceforth spend one Sun- day afternoon a month in the basement of Miss LeCornpte's apartment sipping tea, read- ing plays, and gossiping. First of the Thespian sponsored entertain- ments was a recital of interpretive dancing at the Fine Arts assembly, Monday, October 24, ln December, the thirteenth annual produc- tion of Eager Heart was presented to an appre- ciative audience of students, alumni, and townspeople. This production has become an Active Members annual tradition at the College and is well on the way towards becoming a tradition of the city. The major presentation of the first semester was the Hungarian comedy, "Seven Sisters," presented Ianuary 18 in the College auditori- um. The play was well-received by a large audience, and much favorable comment was given Miss Pearle LeCompte, the director, for the excellent characterizations of her cast. Instead of producing another student drama the second semester, the Kingston Marionettes were brought to the College April 18. Several social functions added to the group's activities. These included a potluck in the fall, an ice cream party in May for the seniors, and the annual steak fry in lune. Associate Members Wilma Brackett.

MEN'S COUNCIL The six men in the above picture, plus Eugene Robinson who was absent when the picture was taken, are officially known as the Men's council, which meets once a month, usually to talk about smoking on the campus. A mediating group rather than what would technically be called an administra- tive body, the council makes arrangements concerning pledging and approves or disapproves the pleas of those who would make an exception to the normal rules governing fraternity membership. lt in addition serves as a creator of good will, pro- moting understanding and cooperation between the two fraternities. Two members from each fraternity, and two representatives of the unorganized to- gether with the dean of men, Prof. Morlock, constitute the membership of the council. The first semester board consisted of Eugene Robinson and Ivor Campbell, Pi Epsilon Phi, Edgar Katterhenry and Charles Guard, Phi Zeta, George Koch and William Co- miskey, unorganized. During the latter half of the school year two changes took place: Bernard Wintner replaced Charles Guard for Phi Zeta, and Frank Kleiderer replaced lvor Campbell for Pi Epsilon Phi. Eugene Robinson, who has now completed two full years of service on the council, was elected executive secretary of the group and served in that capacity throughout the year. Outside of the routine duties connected with pledging, the men's lounge is their chief consideration. Supervision of the lounge is in reality retained by the executive secretary of the College, but it is the duty of the Men's council to make regular inspec- tions of needed changes both as to regulation and equipment. 96 WOMEN'S INTER-SOCIETY COUNCIL The Women's lnter-society council has a status that is quite interesting. lt has no real powers. In fact, it is not a voting organization, but it does perform a very neces- sary function. One of its main purposes is to promote inter-society goodwill and cooperation. This year an inter-society party was arranged by this group. The affair ended in a scaven- ger hunt and was considered by most of those in attendance a worthwhile endeavor that should be continued. The council is composed of two representatives from each of the three sororities, one member being the president of the sorority and the other member being chosen from the sorority at large. Council members andthe sororities whom they represent- ed were Dorothy Skelton and Wilma Brackett, Castalian, Ruth Brown and Ella Ruth Bice, Gamma Epsilon Sigma, Virginia Koehl and Martha Schmitt, Theta Sigma. Vir- ginia Koehl was chairman of the group, and Miss DeLong, the dean of women, was faculty advisor. Society policies are discussed and often created by the council. lt also formulates policies for pledging. Because the noon hour was the only available period for meeting, luncheon meet- ings were held this year. This, according to Miss DeLong, has been very successful and really became more of a pleasure than anecessity.

Approximately nine months be- fore the founding of Moore's Hill college, a group of young men in the town formed a club known as the Philornathean Literary society. As a group they entered the new institution, taking their society with them. They reorgan- ized shortly afterward, and until 1929 when the present Greek letters were adopted were known as the Philoneikean Literary society. Hundreds of Pi Ep alumni are located throughout the tri-state area,and over 150 are listed on the rolls of the Pi Epsilon Phi Alumni Luncheon club. This organization has been the most active of all the society alumni during the past year, holding regular bi-weekly meet- ings. At present the active chapter has a member- ship of fifty-five men, the number which has been unofficially established as the member- ship limit. The past year has been, from a fraternity standpoint, one of the most successful in recent years. A social calendar was adopted early in the fall that called for at least one special social event each month. Two dinner meetings, two informal dances, a party with the Castalians, a Get-Acquainted party for freshmen, and the annual rush and pledge parties preceded the fourteenth annual spring formal, long recog- nized as one of the outstanding social events of the year. The annual Memorial Day outing at Seminole lake brought the year's activities to a close. Pi Epsilon Phiagain published al special Christ- mas edition of the Philo Memo, only society newspaper on the campus, and in addition compiled a large display book, known as the Excelsior, that served as a fraternity year-book. In intrafraternity competition Pi Epsilon Phi emerged victorious in every event, defeating the P. Z.'s in the annual basketball classic, win- ning two ofthe three softball games, shutting them out in the tennis match, and topping their success with a victory in the radio Battle of Wits program.

When the College came to Evansville the name was changed to Phi Zeta fraternity. Phi Zeta had 58 members on the campus the first semester and 76 the second. Besides the campus group, there is an alumni chapter which carries on a regular program in the city. Alumni officers are George Wright, president, Pete Webster, vice-presidentg Tom lngle, secre- tary, Wallace Capel, treasurer. The Phi Zeta glee club began its activities under the direction of lim Crawford, with pro- grams at Bosse, Reitz, and Central during Go to College week, and continued throughout the year, making numerous appearances locally and in nearby towns. Appearing with the glee club in its performances were the Phi Zeta swing trio of Everett Northcut, Barney Sinnett, and Lowell Seacat, and the Phi Zeta quartet composed of Bill Iones, Lowell Seacat, Frank Parker, and lay Leatherman. Willie Kueker fur- nished the laughs with his novelty numbers. Phi Zeta's social program was initiated with an all-campus dance in October. The regular social program of the year consisted of month- ly dances and monthly stag parties. The sea- son came to a climax with the annual spring formal dinner-dance held at the Country club, May 5, with Ed Katterhenry in charge of ar- rangements. Frank Parker was social chairman the first semester, and Phillip Katz handled the social program for the second semester. Traditional events included the annual rush party held at the McCurdy hotel, February l4, the pledge dinner given at the T-Hut, March 14g the annual concluding event, the boat ride held the last of May. . .1 P7- I of 4 I um a. ,' ,X-est X Anna Blocker ,,....

They adopted the name of the famous fountain of Delphi, which to ancient peoples was a symbol of purity and wisdom-Castalia. As their society colors they chose scarlet and white-scarlet for love and loyalty, and white for purity. Their high hopes for their young society found expression in their motto, "Vincit quae patitur," CShe conquers who enduresl. After thirty years of service to the college and to its members, the society has the same high ideal and hope, but today the original 13 has been in- creased to 33 active members who furnish representation for their society in nearly all campus activities, besides maintaining an active social program for their own group. Highlights on the Castalian's social program for the year were the annual banquet for the football squad, the reception for Gamma Delta, the annual rush party, the all-school Shamrock Shag on St. Patricks day, and the grand finale-the annual spring formal dinner-dance at the Country club. An inno- vation was the sponsoring of Castalian Courtesy week, designed to make the College courtesy conscious. Sorority officers for the first semester were Dorothy Skelton, president: Anna Blacker, vice-president, Elsie Van Cleve, secretary, Bettye Iohnson, treasurer, lean McGinness, sergeant-at-arms, Wilma Brackett, chaplain, Iune Hamilton, librarian. Only two changes in officers were made for the second semester, Mary Emily Halbruge becoming sergeant-at-arms, and Bernice Schnacken- burg becoming chaplain. 103 Al Aff?-'Q ,.

Twenty-four members were listed on the rolls of the active chapter follow- ing the second semester pledging. Miss Pearle LeCompte is faculty sponsor, and Miss lna Pearl Nichols, who became a member of the faculty last Sep- tember, has been made an honorary member. The Thetas began the social season with their annual Halloween party in October and Miss LeCompte also entertained the girls at her home during this month. The annual February rush party Was held at the Vendome hotel with Frances Forster as rush captain. The eleven pledges Were entertained and in return gave a party for actives, in April. Highlights of April and May included the annual Mother's Day tea, a skating party, a senior party, an alumni tea, and a hike to Audubon State park. The year's activities closed with the formal given at the McCurdy hotel in May. Martha Lynn and Mildred Stinson were in charge. First semester officers were Virginia Koehl, president, Martha Blythe, vice- president, Kathryn Froelich, secretary, Mildred Stinson, treasurer, Martha Lynn, prosecuting attorney, Rachel Yokel, chaplain, Helen Rodgers, sergeant- at-arms, Frances Forster, reporter, Martha Schmitt, critic. Virginia was the only one to retain her office the second semester.

The Sigs, as they are commonly known, have been actively represented in nearly every college activity during the past year, and Won the scholar- ship honors for the first semester with a two point average. A well-rounded social program has been carried out under the direction of Ruth Brown and Kathryn Wills who served as president of the society for the first and second semesters respectively. The outstanding event on the sorority's program was of course the annual formal dinner-dance at the McCurdy hotel. Other events included a Halloween party, a Mexican party lor members of Gamma Delta, a Christmas party at the home of Dorothy Rodgers, and the annual Mother's Day tea in May. The rush party was held in the Continental room of the Vendome hotel, and later the eighteen new members were entertained with a pledge dinner at the Dutch Door. ' Following an annual custom, the Sigs put a decorated Christmas tree in the tower of the administration building during the holiday season. Officers of the sorority for the first semester were Ruth Brown, president, Mil- dred Flentke, vice-president, Mary Duncan, secretary, Eunice I-lenke, sergeant- at-arms, Betty Baker, treasurer, lean Theby, chaplain, Kathryn Wills, critic. Second semester were , Kathryn Wills, president, Nina Lee Abshire, vice-president, Phyllis Parker, secretary, Ruth Brown, sergeant-at-arms, Betty Baker, treasurer, Connie Pietzner, chaplain, Dorothy Rothrock, critic, Kathryn Schneider, pledge mistress. Mrs. Lucile Springer is faculty sponsor and Miss Lucille Iones is an honorary member. 107 V ,,, I' E Z1 an -1- -f -cr: l'.m4+:ea :g,.,.. t2,,....---- ATHLETICS 108 109 COACH WILLIAM V. SLYKER Head of the Department of Physical Education "Wild Bill" Slyker's athletic career both as coach and player has been long outstanding. His undergraduate days were spent at Ohio Stafe, where he was a three-letter man, win- ning awards in football, basketball, and base- ball. In 1921 he played end on the OSU Big Ten championship eleven that played in the Rose Bowl. In addition he was captain of the basketball squad and was one of the few men to earn ten letters at that school. The fall following his graduation from Ohio State he became football coach at Reitz high of Evansville. From Reitz he went to Cleveland Heights high in Ohio, where his teams had one of the best records in the state, chalking up a record of 23 consecutive wins! In 1930 he came to EC as head coach. His teams here have had their ups and their downs, but for the most part have had very satisfactory records. His main trouble has not been finding prospective material, but rather in keeping his boys in school, too often finding that jobs which he had procured for them proved too lucrative. For three years he served as president of the Indiana Inter-collegiate Coaches associa- tion, and he is now a member of the board of directors and chairman of the publicity and publications committee.

State ...... ln years to come, the athletic season of 1938-39 may be considered one of the most important in the history of Evansville college. It may not ever be called the greatest, but it will be known as outstanding. It was in this season that the football glories at EC sunk to their lowest ebb, and then started a comeback' that drew nation-wide attention. National publicity that was evidently started as a joke because of the disastrous season of '37, when the Purple Aces failed to win a game or score a point, took on an admiring tone, when after two losses this season the Purples struck Wabash with adeterrnined onslaught and vanquished the Cavemen by a 27-0 score. From that point columnists, radio announcers, and the -press associations were loud in their praise foir the ,Aces and their grand coach, Bill Slyker. ' From the first day of practice it was evident that Evansvillehad eve'rything it took to make a great football team. However, it is not an easy task to wake a team that has been pushed around for years to the fact that they can win games. Rose Poly and DePauw defeated the Aces before they realized that they could put a stop to such inglorious defeats. It was against Wabash that the Purple struck with all their power, trouncing the Red aggregation for the first time in the history of EC. They went on to win four games, tie one and lose four. The number of victories was not important. The spirit of the team brought them their greatest praise. 111 First row-eRuss Goebel, Earl Schoenbachler, Mason Wiers, lack Griffis, Bill Behnke, Gil Magazine, Ira Faith, Owen Marting Second row-Art Fritz, Chris Maglaris, Ray Hauck, Art Acker, Bert Miller, Ralph O'Nan, Francis Hess, Harold Richardson, Owen Hamilton, Bob Floyd, Third row-Assistant Coach Harold Selm, Matty Bullock, Bill lones, Bob Slaughter, Wetzel Waggoner, Olin Helm, Charles Guard, Howard Selm, Herb leude, Bill Pollard, Harold Montgomery, Coach Slyker. FOOTBALL To those coaches whose annual call for gridiron material is answered by several score of aspi- rants for the varsity eleven, a turnout of 31 men would be rather disappointing, but not so to Coach Slyker. Throughout the 1937 season he had rarely had enough men to form two complete teams for practice scrimmages, and of the twenty men who had attended the average practice sessions, several had had little if any previous experience. Under those conditions, a squad of 31, including fourteen lettermen and some of the best freshman talent in years, is almost a godsend. Their record of four wins, four losses, and a tie would normally be considered only average, but it received almost as much national attention as that of the Duke eleven which was not scored-upon during its regular season. F Two of the squad, "Nig" Hess and Wetzel Waggoner, received honorable mention on Little All- American selections. Hess, who also received this year's Kiwanis award, did a good share of the passing and running, as well as calling signals. His work was especially outstanding in the Val- paraiso game. "Wag" was one of the most consistent ground gainers on the squad. Coach Slyker shifted him from a half-back post to the full-back position this year, and he often made himself val- uable by getting the small remaining yardage for first downs, with one of his powerful line plunges. Howard Selm, varsity letterman from Connersville, was elected captain of the squad at the annual Castalian football banquet. Howard, who alternated between the center and full-back posts, came into his own as a ball carrier in the Franklin game when he accounted for two of the Aces' four touchdowns. Helm and Montgomery, in addition to Hess and Waggoner, were mentioned on one or more of the various All-State elevens. Helm had the honor of ending the famed scoreless streak, and was high-point man this season. He played a bang-up game at end, and his ability to catch passes caused the Hess to Helm passing combination to be a constant scoring threat. Montgomery, also an end, was playing his first year ,of college ball and made it known that he will be a man to watch the coming year. Monk handles himself well both on offense and defense in addition to doing a fine job of punting. Only four-letter man on the squad was Bert Miller. "Barbell" was handicapped by injuries most of the season and was not at his best this year, but few of the Aces' fans have forgotten the aggres- siveness which marked his three previous years of playing for the Purple. Bob Slaughter, veteran center and three-letter man, was also on the hard-luck list the past season. Bob is a fine ball player, and his loss the latter part of the season was keenly felt. Mainstays of this year's team in addition to those already mentioned were Chris Maglaris and Bob Floyd, backfieldmen, and Russ Goebel, Herb Ieude, Charles Guard, Mason Wiers, and Matty Bullock, linemen. Gil Magazine, Ray Hauck, Lawson Curnell, lim Clayman, Bill Behnke, Bill Iones, Bill Pollard, and Art Acker are substitutes that can be counted on to make a strong bid for regular berths the coming season, and with another year's experience under their belts, "Tug" Richardson, lack Griftis, Owen Hamilton, Clarence Folz, Arthur Folz, and Ira Faith should be ready to see more action next year. 112 EVANSVILLE C07 ROSE POLY C85 As September 24, and the season's opener with Rose Poly, drew near, Evansville college stu- dents began to discount the scoreless season of the previous year and to talk about prospects of a winning season! Pre-season prospects indicated that the team should develop into one of the best in years, but after the final gun of the game with the Engineers, the scoreless streak had not been broken. The Aces had been defeated 8 to U. Playing without the services of Nig Hess, quarter- back and sparkplug of the team, the Aces seemed to lack the necessary finishing drive. On sev- eral occasions they were able to work the ball down to their opponent's 30 yard mark, but then the scoring punch was lacking. On two occasions the Purple rooters were ready to concede them- selves their first touchdown in more than a year, for Evansville ball carriers had broken out in the clear, but on both occasions the men turned around to see if they were going to be tackled and they Were! With the exception of a few minutes in the second quarter the game was played on even terms. Shortly after the beginning of the second period Helm stepped out of the end zone while attempt- ing to punt out from behind his own goal line, automatically giving the Engineers a safety. A few plays later, Rose Poly made the only touchdown and final score of the game. EVANSVILLE C07 DE PAUW C419 Over the week end, Hess had scored against the eligibility sheet, and with news that he would be available for the game with the DePauw Tigers, the Aces' hopes began to rise once more. In ad- dition, Bob Slaughter, veteran center, who had indicated that he would not be able to play this sea- son, changed his plans and reported to practice for the first time. With both Hess and Slaughter in the line-up, the squad began to show some of the drive and snap that they had lacked in the game with Rose Poly, and even though DePauw was known to have a tough aggregation, the Aces' fol- lowers began to hope that this game would be the one! The Fates were still unkind to the Aces, how- ever, and a potent DePauw passing attack proved too much for the Purple eleven as they were swamped by a 41 to 0 score. A strong Evansville forward wall proved too tough for the Tiger back- field and they could make only short gains through the line. The Tigers were not to be denied, how- ever, and resorted to an aerial game that netted them all of their six touchdowns. This 41 to O trouncing, which turned out to be the worst of the season, was a severe jolt to the hopes of EC backers, but by the beginning of the week the student body was again talking of that first victory. EVANSVILLE C277 WABASH C03 This time their hopes were not in vain! From the start the Purple eleven began to roll toward the Wabash goal line with a grim determination that would not be denied. After several exchanges of punts the Aces had gained an advantage that kept the Wabash eleven deep in their own terri- tory with little chance of opening up their offense. The game was still young when the Aces put on their first scoring drive. A brilliant lateral play, Waggoner to Floyd to Hess, advanced the Purple to the Wabash eleven yard line, paving the way for that event. Maglaris lost on the next play, but Hess crashed through to the seven yard line. He then dropped back and tossed a short pass to Helm who, according to the Crescent. "stepped over the goal line for the historic marker." This was the first Evansville college touchdown in twelve games, but what made the occasion even more mo- mentus was the fact that it was also the first touchdown an EC eleven had ever scored against the Cavemen. From that point on, the Aces could not be stopped. A few plays later, a Wabash center pass went wild, and Bullock tackled the receiver back of the goal line for a safety. The Aces throughout the game kept the Cavemen on the defensive and early in the final quarter started a series of touchdown drives that netted three more scores and gave the Purple eleven a 27 to O vic- tory. .

EVANSVILLE C269 FRANKLIN Q61 Continuing on their winning way, the inspired Purple eleven trounced the Franklin Grizzlies 26 to G the following Saturday. The Aces flashed the same powerful offense that had worked so effec- tively against Wabash, and from the first quarter there was little doubt as to the outcome. The first Evansville score came early in the first period when Waggener, the Aces' fullback, crashed through the Grizzly line for a touchdown. With Waggoner leading the way, the Aces threatened to score several times before the end of the half but the Franklin forward wall stiffened and the score at the halt remained 7 to O. Howard Selm replaced Waggener at the fullback post the second half and added two more touchdowns to the Evansville score. The final Evansville touchdown was made by Curnell on the old "statue of liberty" play. EVANSVILLE 475 EARLHAM 105 Qn October 22 the Aces traveled to Richmond, Indiana, to battle the Quakers from Earlham. The newspaper publicity which accompanied the first two Evansville victories was automatically con- tinued, when the Aces defeated the Quakers 7 to U for their third straight win, giving them a win- ning average for the first time in the season. The only touchdown of the game came in the third quarter when Waggener grabbed an Earlham fumble on the fly and raced thirty-five yards for a touchdown. Bullock gave the Purple eleven an added advantage by converting the extra point. In the third quarter also came Earlham's one serious scoring threat, but the Purple line stiffened and the Quakers were held for downs on the twenty-yard line. During the final quarter the Evansville line was so aggressive that Earlham showed a net loss of four yards, EVANSVILLE C65 INDIANA STATE C75 ln lieu of their three straight victories the Aces were pre-game favorites to extend their winning streak at the expense of Indiana State, under the lights at Bosse Field, Qct. 28. The under-dog State outfit won, however, by the narrowest of margins, 7 to 6. Soon after the opening kickoff the Aces drove deep into State territory, but lost the ball on downs. A few minutes later they came back to score on a pass, Hess to Maglaris, and led at the half-time 6 to U. ln the third quarter the Syca- mores launched a passing attack in the shadow of their own goal line, and worked the ball into scoring territory. They then caught the Aces off guard with the "statue of liberty" play and tied up the score. The extra point was converted and State went into a lead that they held till the final gun, despite a last minute passing attack by the Aces.

This game was also played under the lights at Bosse Field, and both teams were seriously handicapped by a strong wind and a muddy field. The Aces espe- cially failed to show the drive that had carried them to victory in three of their last four contests and could not cross the Louisville goal-line. Their opponents likewise were powerless to score in the first half, but a third quarter pass, Langer to Zimlich, netted Louisville a touchdown and a 6 to U victory. Between halves of the contest, Miss Bettye lohnson of Evansville was crowned football queen. Her attendants were Misses Anna Blacker, Virginia Koehl, and Wilma Brackett, also of Ev- ansville, and Miss Minnie Lane of Newburgh. EVANSVILLE C191 VALPARAISO C191 Although neither team gained a decision, the Valparaiso game was one of the most exciting of the season. Brilliant execution of a cut-back play off tackle by the Aces, and a thrilling last min- ute passing attack by the Uhlans exactly offset each other and the final score was l9 to 19. With Hess and Maglaris leading the way the Aces had been hammering at the Valpo goal line from the start of the game, and at the beginning of the final quarter lcd l9 to U. The Uhlans then took ad- vantage of a defective Purple Ace pass defense and knotted the score with two long touchdown passes and another touchdown that followed a pass to the three-yard line. A final scoring drive by the Aces failed when an attempted field goal by Bullock fell short by a scant margin. EVANSVILLE C81 HANOVER C01 Undoubtedly, EC's most serious rooter at the final game with Hanover was the Crescent and Linc sports editor, Vernon Bowen. For weeks Bowen had been carrying a battle of words with his con- temporary, Mr. Bell, of the Hanover Triangle. by means of their respective sports columns, and he had not been at all backward about predicting an Evansville win. The Aces, however, assured his reputation as a prognosticator by taking the Hilltoppers' measure 8 to O. The victory avenged a last second defeat by Hanover in the final game of the luckless 1937 season, and gave the Purple Aces a season record of four wins, four losses, and one tie, a record that may not have been all that could have been desired, but a record that, Coming as it did after the scoreless season of '37, was considered quite satisfactory, by the students.

BASKETBALL With seven lettermen on deck for pre-season practice, Ace followers began to have high hopes for one of the finest rec- ords in years but two losses in quick succession proved cr severe blow to their hopes. , The first loss, to Franklin, came by the narrowest of margins as the Grizzlies wiped out a one-point Evansville advantage with only minutes to play, and established a like margin for themselves, holding it to the end of the game to win 32-3l. Coasting to victory on a 5 point half-time lead, DePauw handed the Aces their second defeat 39-32. ln their first appearance on the home floor the Aces found their stride, trouncing Illinois Wesleyan 43-37. A 40-37 victory over Centenary made the pre-holiday count two and two. Results of vacation inactivity were shown in the next two contests as the Purple were defeated by DePauw 39-32, and Wabash 44-38, for their third and fourth straight conference defeats. The home game with Western State was one of the most thrilling of the season, ending in a story-book finish with Freshman Doerner splitting the nets with a toss from the side just as the final gun sounded to give the Aces a 49-48 victory. Friday the thirteenth proved lucky for Hanover players, and they handed the Aces one of their worst defeats of the season, 44-34, in a ragged game marked by 32 personal fouls. Conference victory number one came at the expense of Indiana State by a 36-33 count but the Aces could not keep in the groove and fell before Franklin, 43-32. In a free-scoring contest with Earlham the Purple came out on the long end of a 57-Sl score. The Aces' first and only loss to a non-conference foe came at the hands of Wayne Univer- sity, the Michigan quintet staving off a last minute Evansville rally to win 33-31. Left to right are Robert Polk, Chris Maglaris, Harold Montgomery, Vance Hartke, and lrvin Prusz. BASKETBALL The Purple Aces established themselves as a Western State jinx with a 45-43 victory that snapped a ten game winning streak for the Bowling Green team, and then the lads made it two in a row by drubbing Wabash 51-41. Continuing their Winning ways the Aces avenged an earlier defeat by Hanover, trimming the I-lilltoppers 48-41 in a game that was really a scoring duel between Katterhenry and Pruett of Hanover, who were tied at that time for eighth place in the list of the state's leading scorers. Indiana State spoiled the Aces' chance of coming out with more wins than losses by handing the Purple five a 41-28 defeat, the largest margin of defeat for the season. The season record of eight wins and eight losses, however, promises well for the future with only one regular, Howard Selm, being lost by graduation. Robert Polk, the other senior, was not out for the team all season and saw little action. Ed Katterhenry, high-point man this year and one of the leading scorers in the state, won the Sig award as the most valuable player. "Gus" Dolerner, freshman southpaw, was also one of the state's highest point-getters and was ,named on the Indianapolis Star's second all-state team. ln addition to Doerner and Katterhenry, Coach Slyker will have "Monk" Montgomery, Chris Maglaris, lrvin Prusz, Wilford Susott, Vance Hartke, Charles Duvall, Les Ewing, and Frank Russell as a nucleus for next year's squad. Montgomery and Maglaris both turned in consistently good performances this year, and Prusz and Susott, who have played some fine bas- ketball, but who have trouble in' finding baskets at times, should return to form next season. Hartke, Duvall, Ewing, and Russell have gained a great deal of experience and should see more action next year. Iohn Armstrong George Becker By action of the Athletic Board ol Control, tennis has been recog- nized as a major sport at Evansville college, and starting next year, players will receive the regular letter and sweater awards. This move was brought about largely through the effort of the college tennis club, which succeeded in putting tennis on an organized basis for the first time in the history of the school. Regular daily practice sessions- were held, and an accurate check of attendance was made at these sessions, two of the requirements which Coach Slyker had declared essential if the squad were to gain recognition. The season record of six losses, one win, and a tie was not spectacu- lar, but the team points with pride to the fact that it did not fail to score in any of the matches, which included contests with some of the best teams in the state. In their opening encounter, the Aces bowed to Illinois Wesleyan by a 7 to 2 score, becoming the third straight victim of the Bloomington netters. George Becker participated in both of the Ace victories, and li TEN N S f . Everett Cope teamed with Ivor Campbell to defeat Hartman and I-ioleman for the only other Evansville victory. In a match with Wabash the following day, the Aces, after getting off to a bad start, won one singles match and both doubles matches, but went down 4 to 3. Campbell defeated Bechtal for the only Evans- ville singles win, and the Becker-Campbell combination edged out Wahl and Rynerson in a drawn-out three set match. The third Evans- ville point was contributed by Armstrong and Scheitlin, who displayed their best form of the season in downing Mayberry and Wahl, the Wabash number one doubles teams. The next week the Purple netters battled to a tie with Indiana State. Campbell and Blackwell turned in singles wins and Cope and Scheit- lin defeated the number one state doubles team for the third point. With a chance to put the match on ice, Becker and Campbell met their first and only defeat of the season in two lengthy sets. 118 In their first match away from home, the Aces fell easy prey to Southern Illinois Normal, 6 to l. Most of the matches were close, the Carbondale team being forced into three sets to win three of their victories, and into add games in another, but the Aces' racket wielders did not have the extra punch necessary to win the final sets. Earlham's Quakers fell prey to the Evansville aggregation a week later. With Cope, Becker, and Scheitlin leading the way with singles victories, the Becker-Campbell duo contributed the extra point to give the Aces a 4 to 3 victory. I The victory enthusiasm was short-lived, however, as DePauw's Tigers, led by Lindsey, state inter-collegiate champion, trounced Ev- ansville 5 to 2. Becker played his best match of the season to gain the only earned victory for the Purple, the second point being won on a forfeit. The next match with Southern Illinois Normal was rained out when less than half completed. The visitors were leading 4 to l, but the ull TEN NIS Ivor Campbell Aces were ahead in two matches then in progress, and two more were to be played. In the two final matches with Illinois Wesleyan and Indiana State, the Aces failed to adjust themselves to foreign courts and fell by 6 to l and 5 to 2 scores in the respective matches. In- both matches the Becker-Campbell combination produced wins, and in the final match with State, Ira Faith scored the only singles victory. Every man on the squad is expected to return next year, and with the addition of several newcomers of known ability and with Maglaris added to the eligibility list, the l94O team should turn in the first Win- ning season in several years. Men who will return from the 1939 squad, in order of their ranking at the close of the season are: Iohn Armstrong fcaptainl, Everett Cope, George Becker, Robert Scheitlin, Ivor Camp- bell, Scott Blackwell, Ira Faith, Iack Hargan, William Schroer, Harold Montgomery, and Frank I-laas. 119 Robert Scheitlin Scott Blackwell VARSITY E CLUB The E club is more or less an honorary organization for those who have won their varsity awards. lt has no regular group functions, business or social, consequently it meets only at irregular intervals, special meetings being called by the officers as the occasion demands. All those who have won either freshman numerals or the upperclassmans block E award automatically become members of the E club. Through the individual members it attempts to contact all prospective students with known athletic ability. It is also the purpose of the club, according to President Robert Polk, to foster school spirit and sportsmanship, and in the past it has cooperated in that respect with the Booster club. Serving with Polk as officers of the club during the past year were Robert Floyd, vice-president, and Vance Hartke, secretary-treasurer. Members William Behnke ,,,,,,, ........

One of the projects that has found the interest of this trio the past two years has been the attempt to organize an Aces' Booster club. All three were active in aiding Prof. Long, Arthur Fritz, and others who were attempting to establish the organiza- tion as a permanent unit, and while the club lasted it was a real help to them in their efforts to get a unified cheering section. Hopes of reincarnating the Boosters next year are still entertained by some mem- bers of the club. Should this move prove successful, the trio's third year as cheerlead- ers should be their most enjoyable one, especially since everything seems to indicate that there is really going to be something to cheer about next year, both at football and basketball games. Chet, Peg, and Nardie lead the locomotive yell, an old standby at nearly every school. 121 These men shouldered the athletic departments financial worries: Prof. Morlock, Prof. Browne, Dr. Smith, Coach Slyker, Prof. Marchant, Mr. Olmsted, Howard Selm, Leo Warren, Prof. Long. ATHLETIC BOARD OF CONTROL The Athletic Board of Control is only in its second year of existence but it has al- ready been successful in making its work felt throughout the city as well as in the College itself. One of the first moves of the board after its organization on September 14, l937, was to work towards increasing community interest in the teams. The last two home games on the schedule were changed from the college gridiron to Bosse field, and several thousands of complimentary tickets were issued to the contests. The policy was changed somewhat during the past year, complimentary tickets being issued to only one contest, the Wabash game, first on the home schedule, but all the games were held at Bosse field. This move coupled with increased advertising of the events has increased to a considerable extent the attendance at both football and basket- ball games, and the interest in the college teams. The majority of the functions ofthe Board of Control are routine in nature. lt ap- proves all expenditures on athletics, makes decisions on other athletic problems, and attempts to contact prospective students with athletic ability. This year tennis was made a major sport by special action of this board. . Membership on the body is so divided that students, faculty, alumni, trustees, the administration, and the athletic department are all represented. Howard Selm and Charles Guard were the student members during the past year, Leo Warren rep- resented the alumni and Robert Mathais the Board of Trustees, Pres. F. Marion Smith, Coach W. V. Slyker, Prof. Dean Long, Dean Iames Morlock, Mr. Olmsted, Prof. Mar- chant, and Prof. Browne are members from the faculty and the administration. Monthly meetings, usually luncheon meetings, are held either at the T-I-lut or some place uptown. 122 WOMEN'S ATHLETICS 3 Women sports have always had an impor- tant place in the campus life of Evansville col- lege. For years basketball had been the prin- cipal sport, but gradually different activities were added to the program. A Women's Ath- letic Association was formed and more sports were featured. The first organization of this kind was formed in l929 when a program was adopted that was so diversified as to include every girl in some phase of the work. The W. A. A. was re-organized in 1934 under the sponsorship of Miss Ida Stieler to "foster a spirit of cooperation and sportsmanship, to teach creative use of leisure time, and to pro- mote recreation and physical development among the women of the college." At that time there were only fourteen charter members but the group now has a membership of forty- two, and since the development of this organ- ization much has been achieved in promoting women's athletics. W. A. A. The local W. A. A. is a member of the State Association. The W. A. A. award system was revised dur- ing the past year and the following number of points were specified for awards: 600, medal: l200, sweaterg 1500, chevron.
