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
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
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
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

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.

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.

S. 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. -

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.

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.

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-
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.

On September 12, with the official beginning of the 1938-39 school
year, nearly one hundred Evansville college students were able to
renounce the title of freshman, with all its stigma, and adopt the
vastly superior title of sophomore.
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.

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.

Of all the organizations on the campus, there
is none that has succeeded in winning more
acclaim for itself and the school than has the
Evansville college a cappella choir. 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.

Two years ago the directorship of the Evans-
ville college band was taken over by Iohn
Schnabel, then an Evansville college junior
who had already obtained recognition for him-
self both as a musician and as a teacher.
lnterest in the band, at least from the stand-
point of its own members, had sunk to a low

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, 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
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.
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-

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
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.

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
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,
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.

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
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
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.

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
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

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'
Each class is represented in the club's system

lvferta, sophomore vice-president, Clarence
Kelly, freshman vice-president.

and Prof. fames Morlock, the faculty sponsor.
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
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-
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

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
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-
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.
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.

SECRETARIAL SCIENCE CLUB
One of the new organizations on the campus
this year is the Secretarial Science club. 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
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
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.

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
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.
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.

Last spring while on a trip with the tennis
team, Coach Slyker told them that much more
organization was needed for the sport. He said,
"lf you are ever to get awards and have tennis
recognized as a major sport, it must be better
organized, and l believe your first step should
be to form a tennis club to increase interest
in the sport."
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-
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
tor, the first official college championship.
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

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-

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.
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-
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
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.

PI EPSILON PHI
Pi Epsilon Phi fraternity has the honor of be-
ing the oldest organization on the campus, in
fact, it might be considered older than the
College itself. 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-
At present the active chapter has a member-
ship of fifty-five men, the number which has
been unofficially established as the member-
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

Founded at Moores Hill college 1869
Phi Zeta fraternity was founded at Moore's
Hill college in 1869 as the Photozetean literary
society. 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.

The Castalian society had its beginning in February, l905 when 13 girls
agreed to found a new society at Moores Hill college. 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.

GAMMA EPSILON SIGMA
Gamma Epsilon Sigma was founded in 'l857 as the Sigournian Literary So-
ciety and is the oldest of the three sororities on the campus.
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.

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. '

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.
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,
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.
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-

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.

EVANSVILLE COD LOUISVILLE C65
The next game for the Purple eleven was the Homecoming tilt with Louisville university, the only
non-conference team on the schedule. 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.

Reading from the lower left you see Wilfred Susott, Charles Duvall, Howard Selm

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
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.
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.
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
TEN N S
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.
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
The next match with Southern Illinois Normal was rained out when
less than half completed. The visitors were leading 4 to l, but the
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.

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
All those who have won either freshman numerals or the upperclassmans block E

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.

For the second straight year Bernard Wintner, Peg Gleason, and Chet Lynxweiler
have led the cheering forces that follow the Aces into every athletic contest-and all
are looking forward to another year with the megaphone.
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.

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
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
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
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
The local W. A. A. is a member of the State
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. The chevron is
the highest athletic award which an Evansville
college girl can attain.
Nine girls received awards this year. Kath-
ryn Wills was the only one to win the coveted
chevron, but three girls, Marian Redman, Dor-
othy Schmitt and Nina Lee Abshire, received
sweaters. Lois Iones, Ellen Nolte, Bernice
Schnackenburg, Martha Blythe and Dorothy
Cook qualified for the medal award.
The social program, directed by Peggy Glea-
son as social chairman, has included hikes,
bicycle rides, skating, swimming and various
campus activities. One of the outstanding af-
fairs was the Football Iamboree, an all-campus
party which the group hopes to make an Cl1'1-
The local organization again participated in
the annual state Play Day, DePauw university.
Twelve girls were chosen by Miss Stieler to
form cf speedball team to compete in the event.
Officers who assisted Miss Stieler, the spon-
sor, in carrying out the program of the year's
activities were: Kathryn Wills, presidentg Nina
Lee Abshire, vice-president, Dorothy Schmitt,
secretary, Marian Redman, treasurer.
Eight cabinet members who were appointed
by the oiiicers and served as the head of some
particular sport were also instrumental in see-
ing that the group's projects were carried out.

supervised were: Lois Iones, volleyballp Bernice
