Once upon a time there was a little freshman coed who wanted to know what the
word "LinC" meant. While she was wondering, along came an editor las editors
often dol, and she asked him what the word meant. And this is what he told her:
"When the College was moved from Moores Hill to Evansville and the name of
the College was changed to Evansville College, it was thought that it would be
only right also to change the name of the year book lwhen the first one was pub-
lishedl from the Melange to ,something appropriate for the reiuvenated institution.
After much deliberation, the name 'l.inC' was given. The name had several signifi-
cances, and as time went on it grew to have more and more. Some of them are 'Life
in College' and 'Love in College.' lThat is why it is written 'LinC.l lt was also used
CIS a part of the name Lincoln, since the College stood on Lincoln Avenue, but prob-
Ubly the best known connotation of the word LinC is its use as a link in the chain
of years at Evansville College."
That is the story of how the LinC got its name. This year book is the eighteenth
LinC in the chain of years that Evansville College has lived. We hope that it serves
to bind ,the memories of all the friends of the College together in the chain forged
of the rest of the LinCs. ln the picture above you see the College's most important
location for the growth of "Love in ColIege" - Headen Retreat.
"the neopnyte has known u healthy
' respect for the senior bench"
"Fresh to don Rhinie Pots," blazed from the headlines of the
Crescent early in the fall of the reign of James Q. Kirtley. And
from this time of reiuvenation of E.C.'s tradition of freshman caps
and the corresponding infringements placed upon the neophyte,
each freshman has known a healthy respect for the senior bench
lat first at leastl. More formally, it is, with its surrounding arbor,
the Sofford Memorial, a gift to Evansville College.
"Life in College," said the editor to the little freshman coed,
and photographer Walton snaps this unusual angle shot of the
College building to illustrate. lt has been said by the LinC pho-
tographer and by other authorities that the College building has
enough interesting camera angles to fill an album. In the same
light, E.C. has enough angles to its campus life to fill the person-
ality of every aspiring student.
"the College building has enough
Interesting camera angles"
To Mr. Olmsted and Dr. VanKeuren goes the dedication of the LinC of 1940. Be-
sides keeping busy collecting tuition and taking pictures, these two manage to find
time to assist and advise worried editors and business managers. It is in this ca-
pacity as faculty advisors of the LinC and Crescent that Mr. Olmsted and Dr. Van
Keuren receive this LinC dedication.
Although it seems that R.E.O.'s membership in the Triumvirate, appointed in April
to head the College, was unsuccessful, his office as Praetor of the College govern-
ment gives him an inside position on the treasury. R.E.O. got his start some twenty
years ago as a student of our own Alma Mater lsee Life and Letters of Ralph Evans
Olmsted, Crescent, Vol. XXI, No. 241. lt was at this time, 1922 to be exact, that he
started this whole business by editing the first LinC. He also had his fingers in the
Crescent the following year, so he now teaches journalism.
"the unceasing efforts of Niederhaus"
Dr. VanKeuren, being a teacher of English, an enthusiastic photographer, and
an author in his own right, handles the editorial end of the work done by this team.
Besides contributing to the photographs in this LinC, he has conferred with the
editor in the creation of it land incidentally shown him some mighty fine color shots
of E.C.'s coedsl. Anyhow, VanKeuren and Olmsted have done a lot of hard work
for no glory, and since you can't dedicate a LinC to the editor, we might as well
dedicate it to them.
Mr. Olmsted's main iob, after he has bled all the students of their hard earnings,
is to keep the Crescent and LinC from making too much money. He has succeeded
admirably at this task, as any inquiring person may discover by looking at the state-
ments in the Freshman Bible. However, it is rumoredtthat the unceasing efforts of
Business Manager Niederhaus were too much for him this year, and the black side
of the ledger turned up heavy.
Two years ago Jim Kirtley set the style in Crescent editorials
' with his "Here ls What ls Smart ln Chapel Applause Last year
Grabert lthe sage of Mt. Vernonl said, "War is Imminent Bu
when Editor Fritz in this year's rag led off with his 'Appointment
of Triumvirate is Step Toward U. of S.l.," Dr. VanKeuren found it
mandatory to frown from his advisory chair at this editorial license

President F. Marion Smith, A.M., D.D., is really a member of the class of 1940 of
Evansville College, for he came to E.C. in 1936 with the rest of the neophytes, and
this year he graduates with the same class. Dr. Smith received his degrees at the
University of Southern California where he also studied law. He also attended naval
academy and when the other World War broke out and the United States ioined
in, he was in there with the rest of them. His title was lieutenant and he commanded
one of the pocket battle ships.
From a sailor he became a preacher, after studying at the Boston School of The-
ology, the Harvard graduate school, and at Teachers College, Columbia. He was a
minister in the Methodist church from 1919 to 1936, at the last at Springfield,
Massachusetts, from where he came to Evansville. Dr. Smith is a member of Theta
Psi, Phi Delta Kappa, Pi Gamma Mu, the American Association for the Advancement
of Science, and also the Rotary Club.
Dr. Smith's resignation this spring came as a shock to all of E.C.'s students, and
all are sorry to see him go. His vivid speaking, his commanding personality, and his
friendly attitude will be remembered. And there'll be few who forget that "when
better bricks are built, Babel will build them." And his ping-pong table too.

C EXECUTIVE SECRETARY
Mr. Ralph Evans Olmsted may be known to some of you as "he who takes my
money," or "he who posts tuition notices," but his duties really extend further than
that. Although he is an instructor in iournalism, his main duties have to do with the
financial status of the College. As you all know, it was his grapefruit farm in Texas
that kept E.C. running through the depression. Although Mr. Olmsted is a very busy
man, he is very nice about giving up his valuable time for students to confer with
him if they bear tuition checks.
Mr. Olmsted got his start lthough you may read about it more fully in the April
1 edition of the 1940 Crescentl when he came to Evansville College in 1919 and
worked very hard. Two years later he was elected editor of the first LinC the College
ever published, and the next year he switched publications and served as editor
of the Crescent. And in spite of his heavy duties on the College weekly, he was
elected to a third office, that of president of the student body. A few years later,
Mr. Olmsted came back home and filled the chair of secretary to the president,
and again he did so well that before long he became executive secretary of the
College. It was thought that his next step in advancement had come about when
it was read in the Crescent this spring that Mr. Olmsted was one-third of the Tri-
umvirate appointed by the Board of Trustees to fill the presidential vacancy, how-
ever this notice did not prove to be true.
9 ADMINISTRATIVE BOARD
There is a time in every year directly following the
spring formal season when studies are thrown to the
high heavens and every good politician gets busy with
his button-holing. It is at this season that those inalien-
able rights of every American citizen, freedom of
speech, press, and assembly, are strained to their con-
stitutional limits and the abyss of un-American activity is
approached. After the fever heat has died away, three
haggard, successful candidates emerge victorious to
mount seats on the Administrative Board. Last year,
thanks to the gods and Grabert, these three were Ed
Katterhenry, Gracie Schneider, and George Koch, presi-
dent, secretary, and treasurer of the Student Associa-
These three olficers then automatically became mem-
bers of the Administrative Board of the Student-Faculty
Federation and met with the three deans and the presi-
dent of the College to "enable students and faculty
. . . to promote most effectively the aims of the Col-
lege as symbolized in the seven-branched candlestick
of the College seal." They met every Tuesday at 4:00
to propound means to effect this purpose.
Here we have Ed Katterhenry, president of the
Student Association in the year of the Trium-
virate. Ed, besides wielding a mean gavel in
the Friday assemblies, also plays a flne game of
basketball. Read his "How I Became President"
or "Holland Boy Makes .Good" in the Senior
section of this book.

When Dean Torbet resigned from his
duties as dean at the end of last
summer's school session, Dean Hale
moved in from Carlton College in
Minnesota to take over the curricula
of Evansville College. He didn't
waste any time but started right in
and one of the first results was a
class in aeronautics made possible
by the Civil Aeronautics Authority.
Not long afterward, he led the
Freshman class by buying the first
Freshman cap. He is also well known
for his interest in the religious ac-
tivities of the College and the dis-
cussion groups held at his home.
Lincoln B. Hale, Ph.D., Dean of the College
James Morlock, Dean of Men
Prof. Morlock is another of the old
E.C. graduates come back to teach
and mediate in the battles of the
fraternities. Prof is from Mt. Vernon,
the home of the sage Grabert, and
finds abundant material from his
home town to illustrate his classes
and conversations. He is well known
for the urban sociology tours he
leads his class in after the summer
session is over. Last year it was New
York. Dean Morlock is a member of
the Indiana Academy of Social Sci-
ence and a member of Pi Gamma
Miss DeLong, being dean of women,
presides over the Women's Council
and the Women's Inter-Society
Council. She is active in the social
life of the College and her Calendar
is in constant demand. Besides her
many duties as dean, she teaches
one of the most interesting and en-
ioyable classes at the College, crea-
tive writing, where a good student
learns how to take tea and crum-
pets. She is also very well known
to all freshmen who were not ex-
empt from English composition.

0 MEN'S COUNCIL
Two afternoons a month, when their dinner has digested and their mental powers
are keen, this group of solons elevate their feet and their minds and decide the
"crying needs" of the men in the college. This masculine body is equipped with re-
sidual powers, to "govern with faultless precision" wherein the constitution of the
Student Government Association does not expressly rule.
Safe in the tradition of democracy, we find thes'e venerable wits preserved from
the terrors of despotism by a system of checks and balances - each fraternity elects
two "able men and true" who take turns at trying to influence the two unorganized
members of the Council and Professor "Yellow Paper .lim" Morlock.
Generally, the main item of discussion is "who pulled that fag on the college
lawn?" and variations on that theme ad intinitum.
Disgusted at having their new fedoras fluttering on the fioor, the boys got to-
gether early this year, held a heated caucus, and in a blaze of glory announced
the purchase of a new hat rack and coat hanger for the men!
The Council, popularly called, is 'not a Council but the Executive Board of the
Council. You and you and you are the Council!

l 0 WOMEN'S COUNCIL
The bevy of beauties portrayed here have power similar to that of the Men's Coun-
cil, so-called. Each year the gals welcome the frosh with open arms, feast them,
and prepare them for the spring shearing . . . uh, . . . pledging.
lnterweaving with the system of political patronage in the College, these girls
arbitrate in the annual May Day festival--and lit is rumoredl the aftermath of
the spring election is a weighty factor in determining the queen of May. With all
these laforementionedl beauties in the organization of the Executive Committee,
it would seem more equitable if they drew straws on the outcome, membership in
the Executive Committee being a requisite for queenship.
Personnel of the said Committee, figured with slide rule and algebraic formula,
is extracted lthat's the word all rightl from the iunior, the sophomore, and the
senior classes, the YWCA prexy, and Dean DeLong, she of the calendar and the

0 WOMEN'S INTER-SOCIETY COUNCIL
The idea of the trinity of administrative authority extant in Fritz' Triumvirate, was,
probably, drawn from the organization of the Inter-Society Council. It lthe lnter-
Society Councill is appellate in iurisdiction, catching the "torch" as it is flung by
the other women's administrative organizations. The "torch" usually is women's
pledging and rushing activities.
Two members from each sorority are chosen for first semester membership and
the second semester president from each sorority is also included to add "new
ideas" to the organization, Miss DeLong is an ex ollicio member of the Council.
This tri-partisan council meets monthly, ponders the fate of the measures brought
before it, but is limited in its power to take final action. Power is vested in the con-
current features of the Women's Council, the Inter-Society Council, to quote Capel
'38, is the "big happy family." ,
Christina Mann was president both semesters in the Theta Sigma society, there-
fore their representation in the second semester's meetings was two.

FROM 134 TO 58-
We have had the "Highlights" of this
and the "March" of that- now comes
time for a review of the Highlights of the
Class of 1940's March through four
years of college life at Evansville College
- "Our Years."
Our story could well be titled "From
134 to 58-under Smith," for during
the past four years the number of mem-
bers in our class decreased from the op-
timistic first day enrollment of 134 to the
disappointing number of 58 graduating
seniors, and while this transition was
taking place, F. Marion Smith introduced
into Evansville College a new era of ad-
ministration, only to disappoint the stu-
dent body with the news that he too was
leaving the school after four years as
The fall of 1936 was the beginning of
a new experience for us. We were col-
lege freshmen. After the summit of im-
portance had been reached as high
school seniors, we found that with each
new experience in life, such as entering
college, a phase of "greenness" had to
As freshies we eagerly entered into
the spirit of college life. We enjoyed the
Craig Hall banquet-suffered through
the English and Psychology examinations
-forgot our high school pasts-en-
tered into College politics. Bill Emig was
chosen our temporary class president,
with Fred Damm, Wilma Brackett, and
Morris Byrd named for the other offices.
During our first September, 15 reported
for football, 4 ioined the choir, 8 were
exempted from. English composition and
Nardi Wintner ioined the Freeman twins
in the cheer leading business.
The first class party was held near the
end of October in the Halloween motif.
Initiation into the circle of College
dances followed closely with the Alumni-
Homecoming dance in the McCurdy Rose
Room. Don Bestor's band failed to arrive
because of an accident, and a last min-
ute substitution had to be made.
Friday the 13th lNovemberl was the
date of the Faculty reception at Dr.
Smith's home. Many of us will long re-
member the warm invitation his charm-
ing wife gave in chapel and the pleasant
evening spent in her home.
Fifteen freshmen reported for basket-
ball practice and soon assumed their re-
sponsibility on a Slyker team.
Wonders never cease, as we found
out in December, for the Crescent be-
came a fairly good sized paper, and the
much-talked-of Student Directory was
A great deal happened in the several
weeks before the Christmas holidays.
Nine freshman numeral sweaters deco-
rated the chests of our football men, and
each and every one of them desired
someday to possess one of those splen-
did white four-year sweaters. The sorori-
ties put on their party manners for the
Gamma Deltas, and they in turn enter-
tained their best boy friends at a "vice
versa." The' lnter-Society All-Campus
Dance in the Rose Room climaxed the
pre-vacation activities in the popular
tone, and the traditional presentation of
Eager Heart augmented the aesthetic
Returning in January, we enioyed the
Thespian production of Noah. Helping
with this flood performance were several

freshmen-outstanding among these
was Dorothy Rothrock as Noah's wife.
Brains began to work overtime as the
semester examination schedule was
posted. It was the Sunday before exam
week. Most of us were attempting to de-
cipher our lecture notes. Our families
were hovering around radios, eager to
hear the occasional flood bulletins an-
nouncing progress of the unusual spring
flood, caused by thawing of heavy win-
ter snow and augmented by heavy rains
that had followed Noah. Anxiety was
increased when announcement was
made of the closing of first the public and
then the parochial schools. Then, sudden
joy on our part resulted from Dr. Smith's
notice of E.C.'s closing. No exams!
Realization that we were personally
affected by the Flood was met in several
ways. Some were busy caring for their
own property, some left Evansville to en-
ioy the unexpected vacationfand others
ioined in the flood relief movement. The
Administration Building became a Red
College life resumed its usual pace
after the month of vacation. The second
semester got under way, social societies
started rushing-officially and unoffi-
cially. Political factions were well pro-
nounced in the election of permanent
class officers. Edgar Katterhenry, Charles
Guard, Wilma Brackett and Kathryn
Schneider were elected, with the defeat-
ed group charging the Student Associa-
tion president, Pat Mellen, with unfair
procedure in his conduct of the election.
The result of pledging was announced
with 12 Philos, 28 Phi Zetas, 9 Castal-
ians, 9 Sigs and 2 Thetas. '
Hell week -- mid-semesters --- spring
vacation -all passed rapidly. The for-
mals took the social highlight. Basketball
awards were received by three. Spring
elections initiated us to full-fledged Col-
lege political activity. Final examinations
-- CapeI's notable LinC - Commence-
ment exercises - Commencement dance
-- and our first year of college was com-
pleted. We began our summer vacation
impressed with our new college life and
looking forward to our return in the fall.
Sophomores! Fine feeling.
After looking around to see who was
missing from the class, we donned the
feeling of sophomoric attitudes and
looked over the crop of freshies.
Six members of our class went out for
football. Peggy Gleason and a fresh-
man, Chet Lynxwiler, replaced the Free-
mans as cheer leaders.
The political organization of Sig-Phi
Zeta swept through the upper class elec-
tions-Charles Guard, Nardi Wintner,
Kathryn Schneider and Dorothy Schmitt
being named in our class.
Homecoming week-end activities
reached a new high with the student
body taking a very active part. Prepara-
tion for a bonfire celebration got under
way. Despair followed the prankster pre-
mature firing of the huge pile of wood.
Cooperation, so often arising out of dis-
aster, appeared. Radio and front-page
newspaper announcements brought city-
wide sympathy, interest and help. After
ten hours of exhausting labor, the dis-
posal in the Ohio of De Pauw's effigy
followed bonfire activities which-were
witnessed by a large number of inter-
Paul Michelson, nationally known
sports writer who had given the name of
"Gloomy Bill" to Slyker during the poor
football season, advised E.C. -to forget
the sport after a non-scoring season.

College traditions were revived, in-
cluding green freshie "rhinies" and
white senior "cords,"
Five went out for basketball, T-dances
were popular, Thespian productions
were offered, final examinations were
completed, and a post-final dance was
held at the Colonial Club.
Franklin Copp, member of the class
who had completed his second year on
the football squad, was the victim of a
fatal automobile crash shortly before the
The second semester got underway
before we got accustomed to the stream-
lined style adopted by the Crescent in
New ideas and greater interest in
College life seemed to be the theme of
our second year. The Out of Town Men
organization started a movement for a
men's dormitory, progress was made in
athletic interest by the organization of a
Booster Club, the Choir took a 10-day
northern trip of 1000 miles, the iunior
class planned a colossal prom, and in-
tra-mural track and basketball became
extra-curricular attractions. ,
Edgar Katterhenry, Wilfred Susott and
Irvin Prusz received basketball letters,
with the first two named sharing second
place in scoring honors. Harold Selm,
senior, was the top-ranking scorer.
The organized members of the class
took their places in their respective so-
cieties and entered into the rushing and
Notable during the spring were the
farce edition of the Crescent on April
Fool's Day and the modernistic style of
the 1938 LinC. John Armstrongwas busi-
ness manager of the publication.
A new angle entered the political pic-
ture at E.C. that spring. The Castalian-
Philo combination was successful with
their "Clean House with House" cam-
paign. For the first time in several years,
a representative of the group was elect-
ed Student-Association president.
Topping the year's highlights lif you
were socially mindedl was the Junior
Prom under the direction of Yale Trusler,
president of the class. Never did any
group connected with the College plan
and execute a dance on a comparable
scale. Joe Cook acted as iudge in the
selection of Prom Queen.
Our group was considerably smaller
the third year. Some could not afford
school, some transferred to other schools
and others were indifferent. Class dis-
tinction, however, was not definite. The
credit hours ranked some iuniors as
sophomores and some seniors were
classed as iuniors.
Don Todrank, Kathryn Schneider, Fred
Blackburn and Bill Kueker were chosen
class officers, and general feeling among
members called for a second Junior
We score! We win! The first point
made after twelve consecutive scoreless
defeats came when we defeated Wa-
bash 27-0. llncidentally the first win
ever recorded by Evansville over Wa-
"Aces should erect a bronze plaque of
William Victorious Slyker. He is Evans-
ville's hero - not the players. Any man
who can stick and work to overcome all
obstacles like Coach Slyker did is a foot-
ball immortal. Evansville College should
never forget him. Football victories are
common but not coaches able to take the
hoots and defeats and then come back.
A Slyker Memorial would always remind
teams in the future. Losers and winners.
There is always such a thing as a

The class of 1941 has lived through a tornado, several minor business cycles, and
parts of several wars, yet, unperturbed, is heading toward its senior year and gradu-
ation. But, within the college, the class of '41 was busy at studies and extra-cur-
ln the fall class elections, on October 3, Crayton Mann was chosen president
ofthe iunior class, and at the same time he was given the task of being iunior prom
chairman, for that is the inheritance of every iunior class prexy. Lois Jones was
elected to the vice-presidency, Eunice Henke was elected secretary, and Max Thomp-
son was elected treasurer.
Early in October Maryrose Roach was elected first semester vice-president of
the Thespians, addingtanother laurel wreath to the head of the ace feature writer
CAA neophytes in the iunior class were Robert Reising, Bill Chamberlin, Arnold
Holstine, and Ray Hauck. Of this group, Bill Chamberlin was probably the most
enthusiastic, his roommates, Frank Parker and Max Thompson, often found him
studying into the early morning on the "Principles of FIight," etc.
In the middle of the month of October, Maynard Libbert achieved renown by
being chosen Senior Manager of the football team, thereby acquiring the highest
rank in managership besides several of the sports world stooges, including Tom

Trimble. Another outstanding happening during this month was the selection of
Lois Jones as president and Bernice Schnakenburg as vice-president of the W.A.A.
At the end of the football season, the highest honor given to any member of
the team, the Kiwanis Award, was awarded to Russell Goebel. Russ was also the
captain of the team throughout the season -- was educated in the school of "hard
knocks" that had been conducted in the fall of '37 by the opponents of E.C. The
season of '37 was Goebel's freshman year land the scoring of the team that year
amounted to naughti and also the freshman year of Lawson Curnell, Ray Houck,
and Bill Pollard. They earned numerals in their freshman year in football and have
been winning letters ever since.
Hartke and Henke were seen walking down the hall.
Jean Baskett was seen wearing her fur coat in class.
Marjorie Schnake, an import from the "no'th," was the first girl in the iunior
class to win a "queenship." lt occurred when Marge was chosen as the "Phi Zeta
Sweetheart" at the Phi Zeta Sweetheart Dance at the Colonial Club, December 15.
This victory was added to the long string of pulchritudinous conquests that Marge
had already amassed.
Hartke, of Stendal fame, name of Vance, blossomed out in basketball playing
ability this year and stepped into Susott's gym-shoes when Suzy's knee was in-

iured. During the last half of the season Vance played almost every minute of
every game and sniped a few baskets too!
On the date of January 20, Ralph Bedwell rocketed to fame on the E.C. campus
by winning a "swing contest" sponsored by the Crescent. For this achievement,
Ralph was awarded several free passes to the Loew's. Awarded, however, does
not mean received.
Hartke and Henke were seen walking down the hall.
Jean Baskett was seen wearing her fur coat in class.
At this iuncture ofthe iunior class chronology, Iris Buck deserves a mention. Iris, a
Sig, has been president of the YWCA for this year - iust one of her many duties.
Every Wednesday as the auditorium filled and the soporific students took their pews,
Iris played the piano. Anyone that can face the inane reception given to chapel
programs every week has a real desire to serve.
Back again to the calendar, to February, the era of back-slapping and mud-
slinging. Exactly which iuniors were the maior offenders in this department is dif-
ficult to ascertain lunderstandl. Crayton Mann added a bit of tradition to the
college during the after-math of pledging, Hell-Week, by having his stooge bring
him his dinner in the Rathskeller.

On March l, Cradle Song was produced by the homecoming Thespians. Mary-
rose Roach, Frances Ray Coudret, and Thelma Small were iuniors who acted. The
plot of the play was slight, thus the acting of the play was more important than
otherwise, and these three were in complete harmony with the play, their acting
was well done.
TKA, national honorary forensic society, elected Vance Hartke and Tom Trimble
to their membership in early March. These two iuniors won this honor through
intercollegiate debate work.
Junior Kemp, of Holland, Indiana, watched over the Schmidt household of bas-
ketball stars and kept them in good health through his cooking. Besides his pro-
ficiency in cookery, Junior was expert at washing "deeshes."
Although the LinC had not gone to press when this story was written, the Junior
Prom looms very large in this class' activities of the year. No .matter what other
social functions are presented by the college during the year, the Junior Prom is
still considered the climax of the spring formal season. Crayton Mann, as stated
before, is chairman of the affair. His assistants are the other officers of the class.
The class of '41 has held this year many presidencies, many vice-presidencies,
and a large portion of the subordinate positions in Evansville College's political
and administrative substructure. This junior class looks forward to the leadership
of next year's campus life.

When the class of 1942 flnally assembled on that crisp September morning, they discovered that their
class had lost many of its old members. This was made up for partially by the newcomers from other
By the time people had got used to studying, it was time for politics. Following an unusually calm
election, the leaders of the class were announced as Wilfred Doerner, president, Beth McCarty, Vice-
president, Jeanne Griffith, secretary, and Ira Faith and Margaret Ploeger, co-treasurers. This Phi Zeta-
Sig combination had beaten the Philo-Castalian-Theta combination of Russell Matthews, and Britting-
When the Student-Faculty Federation committees were announced, five members of the class of '42
made the grade. Everett Cope became a member of the publications committee, Dale Phares and Bar-
bara Reisinger were named to the public relations committee, Frank Russell was appointed to the speech
committee, and Betty Frazier served on the welfare committee.
Everett Cope served as assistant editor of the LinC. Others announced last fall as on the LinC staff
were Frank Russell, Beth McCarty, and Clayton Mundy. On the stat? of the Crescent were sophomores
Bea Buente, Hilda Wahnsiedler, Kenneth Moxley, and Betty Lant.
After the political situation had been thrashed out, the sophs turned to the freshman problem and
decided that tradition must be obeyed. The result was the wholesale buying of rhinie pots with a flght
in the hall thrown in. Dean Hale was mediator in this affair, but a number of swats were passed before
he got there to mediate. Later on in the season, the sophs and frosh decided to settle the pot problem
one way or the other with a speedball game to be held between the halves of one of the football
games. No one knows exactly how this came out, but the popular feeling is that the sophomores won.
But the freshmen didn't wear their caps much longer anyhow.
The opening of football season found sophomores Art Acker, Bill Behnke, Charlie Duvall, Harold
Montgomery, lra Faith, Owen Hamilton, Gil Magazine and Kenny Sansom battling for the purple and
white. Although the Aces lost most of their games on the gridiron this year, the sophomores won a real
victory when Beth McCarty was elected Football Queen. Each class and society backed one candidate-
the three leading ones being Beth McCarty, Wilma Brackett, and Ray Ann Oliver. Beth was crowned by
Ed Katterhenry at the Homecoming game with Earlham and again that night at the Homecoming Dance.

With the football season ending, the Castalians planned the all-school banquet to honor the squad.
Edith Mae Matthews and Frances Ploeger were co-chairmen in charge and were assisted by sophomores
Carolyn Reese, Dorothy Armstrong, Anne Voelker, Margaret Ploeger, Mabel Legeman, Virginia Lilly,
Betty Jane Rice, and Hilda Wahnsiedler. The banquet was held at Craig Hall in Trinity church, and
sweaters were awarded to the team members.
December rolled around and with it Christmas vacation, heralded by the Phi Zeta Svieetheart Dance
held at the Colonial Club. Sophomore Betty Frazier was one of the three picked by the judges, but she
lost to Mari Schnake in the final balloting.
As the basketball season opened with a flash, sophomores "Gussie" Doerner, "Monk" Montgomery,
and "Smokey" Carl Wiley were doing their share for the fighting Aces. These boys fincidentally, helped
by the other team membersl pulled E. C. through nine straight victories until Western State defeated
them. All the way through Evansville's schedule, Gussie Doerner led in the state scoring race, finally to
lose out to Mosser of St. Joseph's who played five more games than Doerner. At any rate, Gussie won
the highest individual scoring average in the state and was mentioned on the all-state five. Another
victory for the sophomoresl '
At the end of January final exams came around, but everyone got a chance to recuperate from them
at the Leap Year Formal dance given at the Colonial by the Gamma Deltas. On the eighth of February

was had by all. The committee for arrangements included Gussie Doerner, Elsye Grossman, and Edith
During the year several of the sophomores succumbed to the wiles of the five societies. They are:
Castalian, Minnie Lee Anderson, Leona McCutchan, Dorothy Armstrong, Carolyn Kimball, Virginia Hald-
erby, and Jessie Combs. Theta Sigma, Catherine Kessler, and Eloise Erskine. Gamma Epsilon Sigma,
Martha Schlimmer and Barbara Reisinger. Phi Zeta, Carl Wiley, Russell Bufkins, and Warren Lear. Pi
Epsilon Phi, George Becker, William Baugh, and Addison Riepe. The annual Philo-Phi Zeta basketball
game was a thriller all the way through with the Philos eking out a 19417 win. Doing their bit for Phi
Zeta were class members Charlie Duvall and Don Schneider, for Philo, Frank Russell, Revere Peters,
Willie Baugh, and Addison Riepe. Incidenlally, "Flash" Duvall was high scorer for the game. Maglaris

In February another sophomore came to the limelight when Hilda Wahnsiedler represented the Col-
lege women at the State oratorical contest held here. HiIda's subiect was the sterilization of the feeble-
minded. Frank Kleiderer represented the men.
Spring found the sophomores dominating the tennis team. Of the eight seeded men, the sophomores
held Bve of the coveted positions. These men were Everett Cope, Bob Scheitlin, Ira Faith, Frank Haas,
and Willie Baugh.
In April the choir left on its long tour for New York and other points. Sophomores who went on the
trip were Ellen Witherspoon, Anna Jean Lowell, Martha Schlimmer, Eileen Bruner, Catherine Froelich,
Gladys Cooper, Gerry Young, Rosemary Zuspann, Beth McCarty, Don Schneider, Morris Jarboe, Warren
Lear, Betty Britz, Ethel Morehead and Clayton Mundy.
The choir returned April 26 worn out but in time for the spring formal season. After the formals and
elections, the Junior Prom is the big event, and the sophomores are looking forward to their big time
next year. Tempus flgits and summer is here.

Humor and scholarship plus wit and clarity with
equal personality is truly a rarity-a rarity that
is found in the Freshman Class. And freshmen they
were on September 11, as they started oft to col-
lege to gain a lot of knowledge. One hundred
sixty-one in number were these "lowly creatures."
Out-of-towners hailed from the states of Indiana,
Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Oklahoma, Missouri, New
York, Virginia, Kentucky, New Jersey and Texas.
Bosse had the honor of contributing forty-six neo-
phytes to this august institution, while thirty came
from Central and eighteen from Reitz.
College social lite was officially inaugurated at
the Freshman-Faculty Banquet when freshmen met
freshmen and profs. Campus atmosphere was
added at the all-campus mixer. After a look by
the dignified, higher colleagues, they declared the
new crop to be "pretty fair." This "fair crop" con-
tained seedlings of athletes, school leaders, dram-
atists, artists, writers, musicians, and perhaps the
embryo of a scholar which might develop with

leaders. Ray Ann Oliver was selected as the frosh
candidate for the title of football queen.
Headlines and bombs shrieking at the declara-
tion of Europe's powder-bowl explosion shocked
and surprised the world-at-large, but this surprise
was slight in comparison with the astonishing and
unbelievable declaration on the morning of Octo-
ber 10 -- the freshmen, in a series of secret meet-
ings, had agreed not to don the traditional green
rhinie pots even if it were necessary to uphold this
decision by force of arms. Somewhere along the
Evansville College war front extensive victories by
both freshmen and sophomores were reported.
The sophomores called the members of the class
of '40 and '41 in as reserve forces. With an ad-
vancing line of hefty paddles the battle raged.
Completely outnumbered-after staging a val-
iant Finnish struggle-the freshmen were Fin-
nished and forced to surrender. They quietly
donned their rhinie pots.
The E.C. gridiron was trod by freshman feet in
battle after battle. Boys reporting for action were
Grant "Goan" Brandes, Bob Yabroudy, 'Paul Te-
valt, Bob Baumgartner, Jack Timmons, Jack
Shrode, Ben Sopchynski, Clinton Easley, Lowell
Galloway, and Bob Eberhardt. These E.C. foot-

Nancy Lou Martin as president, Dorothy Ann
Surbeck vice president and Rita Hayes as secretary
were chosen to head the Gamma Deltas. The three
women's sororities entertained this society at vari-
ous times during the first semester. The Gamma
Deltas, with Mary Lou Miller as social chairman,
sponsored a Sadie Hawkins' Dance and a formal
Leap Year Frolic.
After a period of struggle and strife for sur-
vival, permanent elections were conducted.
Emerging victorious were: Dick Wulff, president,
Kenneth Schnute, vice-president, Dorothy Bauer-
meister, treasurer, Marcella Horny, secretary, and
Walt Winters, social chairman. Believing in the
theory that scholastic learning and campus fun go
hand in hand, the class sponsored an afternoon
all-campus tea dance October 18 in the Men's
Lounge. At this time the freshman trio-Bill
Davis, Betty Winternheimer, and Bill Brightmire-
furnished their first varsity performance.
In response to Butche's call for an E. C. band,

Frosh athletes Bert Lindsey, Bob Crandal, H'Rose
Lowell Galloway, and Paul Silke went to the

The dramatic field was also invaded by this
year's frosh. From work in "Eager Heart" and Mjandefur
"Cradle Song," Russell James was accepted as a
member of the Thespian Society, while Jean Bart-
ley was made an Associate member. Artistic talent
was found abundant in the chalk talks of Howdy E- Sflwdf

On .Ianuary 4, freshmen Jim Dimmett, Dick

thur Stumpf, Jack Hahn, and .Ierry Enlow defeated
the sophomores in an intermural basketball game.
Yesterday these green freshmen entered Evans-
ville College as "additions" to the campus, hoping
to find places, today these same students are an
all-important and integral part of the college.
They are E. C.'s freshmen of today destined to be
the leaders of America tomorrow.

Phi Zeta fraternity, now in its seventy-first year, was founded in 1869 at Moores
Hill College and was then known as the Photozetean Literary Society. When Moores
Hill became Evansville College in 1919, the organization adopted the name of
Phi Zeta. From the date of its founding until the present, Phi Zeta has been active
in maintaining the fraternal ideals that have made it an integral part of campus life.
Phi Zeta had sixty-three members on the campus during the first semester and
seventy-eight the second. ln addition to the members enrolled in the college the
alumni chapter carries on an active program in the city. Alumni officers are: Dr. C.
A. Rycroft, President, Otto Schnakenburg, Vice-President, Jake Henn, Secretary,
Henry Musgrave, Treasurer, and Dr. Victor Jordan, Jr., Critic.
The Phi Zeta Glee Club, directed by Jay Leatherman, presented programs at the
various high schools in connection with Go To College Week. The Phi Zeta swing
trio composed of Barney Sinnett, Lowell Seacat, and Everett Northcutt, the fraternity
quartet consisting of Bill Jones, Lowell Seacat, Jay Leatherman, and Frank Parker
and several individual entertainers also participated in the programs. The swing
trio is popular both on and oFf the campus for its original rhythmic interpretations.
The social program of Phi Zeta was begun with the annual all-campus dance,
September 29. Other events were the Phi Zeta-Sig Halloween party, a dance each
month and stag parties. The highlights of the social year were the Phi Zeta Sweet-
heart Dance held December 15, and the annual spring formal dinner-dance on May
4. Social chairman for the first semester was Crayton Mann, co-chairmen for the
second were Wilfred Schroer and Warren Reininga.
The traditional events held each year are the rush party, pledge banquet, and
the concluding social event of the year, the annual boatride held in the last part

The Pi Epsilon Phi fraternity has long been proud of its history, having been the first
fraternity in the College. ln fact, it was organized some nine months before the
founding of Moores Hill College which upon its move to the crescent city became
known as Evansville College. ln this early stage the fraternity was named the
Philomathean Literary Society. Shortly after the College moved, the group reorgan-
ized as the Philoneikean Literary Society which it remained until 1929 when it
adopted the present Greek letters.
The alumni of Pi Epsilon Phi have always been very active. During the last year
they incorporated and adopted the name of Phi Alpha, lnc. This organization has
rented several rooms ,in a building in the downtown area and furnished a very
adequate recreation and meeting hall which is suitable for parties. The alumni have
on several occasions granted the active chapter the use of these club rooms for
fraternity parties and informal get-togethers.
The active chapter has had a very successful year. Social events of various types,
including stag parties, dinner parties, informal potluck suppefs with the Castalians,
and dances, have been plentiful with some such function taking place at least once
a month. As the climax of this social program, of course, came the annual spring
formal which all active members regard as the outstanding social event of the year.
The social program was brought to a close by the annual Memorial Day outing.
The intra-fraternity battleground has been unusually quiet this year, but Pi Epsilon
Phi continued its undefeated record of last year by turning back the Phi Zeta bas-
ketball team in the last minute of a thrilling encounter by a score of 19 to 17.
The total membership of the fraternity has remained practically the same as
last year. The twenty-five pledges initiated the second semester brought the total
to fifty-six active members.

ln February of 1905 when the College was still at Moores Hill,
lndiana, thirteen girls agreed to form a new society. They adopted
the name of the famous fountain of Delphi, which was an ancient
symbol of purity and wisdom - Castalia, They chose as their
society colors scarlet and white: scarlet for love and loyalty, and
white for purity. Their motto, "Vincit quae patitur," means "She
conquers who endures."
Today the original thirteen have increased to 41 active members
who furnish representation for their society in practically all cam-
pus activities and provide an active social program for their own
group. Fourteen pledges were initiated into the society this year.
Highlights on their social program for the academic year were
the sixteenth annual football banquet for the members of the
football squad, the reception for members of the Gamma Delta
organization, the annual rush party, the annual literary tea, the
Mother's,Day tea, and the grand finale - the annual spring formal
dinner-dance at the Country Club.

The Sigs, being the oldest sorority on the campus, have many traditions and
customs, among which are included their annual Hallowe'en party held this
year on October 31, and their annual Christmas party which took place in the
Men's Lounge, Wednesday, December 13. The Christmas Tree in the College
tower is also one of the sorority's oldest and best-known traditions. L
In December, the Gamma Delta Organization was entertained by the Sigs
with an old-fashioned School House Party. The annual rush party was held
in the Continental Room of the Hotel Vendome, with Lois Jones as Pledge
Mistress. Other social events of the year were the Mother's Day Tea, Dad's
Banquet, and a box supper given early in May. The Sig basketball award,
given to the most valuable player on the basketball team, was donated for
the second successive year to Edgar Lee Katterhenry.
The Sigs were founded in 1857 and were eighty-three years old this win-
ter. The Sigs have been known for their high scholastic standing in the school,
and have been actively outstanding in all social events of the year.
The climax of the social year was their annual spring Sig formal given in
the Rose Room of the Hotel McCurdy on May 10, with Mabel Wheeler acting
as Formal Chairman. Mrs. Katherine Long is faculty sponsor, and Lucille Jones
is an honorary member.

The lounge was appropriately decorated for the occasion, and stunts and dancing
were the main features of the evening. Favors of small cow bells were presented to
Also, in November, the Thetas entertained the Castalians, the Sigs, the Gamma
Deltas, and the Women Faculty Members with a talk given by Miss louise Heim, a
teacher at Howard Roosa school who spent most of the summer in Germany. This
was followed by a reception in the women's lounge.
The Christmas party this year was held at the home of Louise Schmitt. Mildred
Stinson was elected Rush Captain for the rush party which was held on Valentine's
Day, February 14, in the Empire room of the Vendome Hotel. Ten pledges were
brought into the society. They are: Emma Jo Hatcher, Anna Claire Brown, Kathryn
Kessler, Martha Hughes, May Ella Ritter, Eloise Erskine, Regina Kleinknecht, Mary
Edna McCutchon, Annabelle Gann, and Minnie Frances Stockfleth. The pledge
dinner was held at the home of Louise Schmitt.
In March the actives were entertained by the pledges with a waffle supper at
the home of Mary Edna McCutchon. Third degree initiation was given the pledges.
The alumni of the Theta Sigma Society entertained the actives of the society by
a dinner banquet given April 12. The season's events were climaxed by the annual
Spring Formal held at the McCurdy Hotel on May 18, and a Mother's and Father's

0 THE CRESCENT
Continuing the streamlined pace set by one Quatus Mutatis Ab Illo lJim Kirtley to
you who have forgottenl and maintaining the All-American record set last year by
Minnie Lane and company, as well as keeping the Evansville College community in-
formed about the goings on hereabouts, was quite an assignment for the 1940
Crescent staff, but to iudge by the mob which collected in the vestibule' to await
its appearance each Friday, at least some success was attained. lWe won't say
anything about making money. Fritz and Mann have said plenty about that al-
lt was a year of experimentation. New features, make-up ideas, methods of pres-
entation came and went. But it was the old tried-and-true feature, Off'n-On The
Campus, which kept everyone in suspense. Walter W. lRussl Bufkins parented the
scandal column. But Buck's offerings by no means overshadowed such old stand-
bys and new creations as Max Thompson's Somebody Told Me, Tom Black's first
semester offerings to the college rug-cutters, Swingologically Speaking, freshman
Chamberlin's Knothole, through which the college peeked at the inside of E.C.
sports, the editorial column, which nobody read anyway, even though it did have
one or two fair ideas advanced in the weekly 1000 words.
But those things appeared regularly, issue after issue. Proving to any doubters
that it was primarily a newspaper, the Crescent printed as its big stories of the year
the coming of Dean Hale, it recorded the highest enrollment figure of E.C. history,
CAA, Phi Zeta Sweetheart Dance, Commencement, the formals, the varied successes
in football and basketball, Homecoming and Hell Week. With these spotlighted
features, the Crescent sandwiched into a word picture of E.C. life the smallish every-
day routine. The Crescent - Evansville College in print?

0 THE LINC
To you, the students and faculty and friends of Evansville College, we the LinC
staff offer this book of memories to be. lt is the eighteenth LinC in the chain forged
by the years of student-faculty life at Evansville College. We have tried to make
the LinC this year a true representation of E.C.'s campus life as we see it.
Out of the north last September came Tom Walton, photographer, "with pro-
fessional skill but amateur prices," to quote R.E.O. He stumbled into the Rathskeller
first to get a iob on the Crescent, but Editor Fritz, unable to recognize his talent,
sent him away to the LinC office lwhere's that?l where he was gratefully received
and put to work.
And from the metropolis of Boonville came E.C.'s champion window puttier to
give his iournalistic advice to the LinC.VWhen Bufkins was not diligently practicing
his choir music, his fertile brain was a great help in conceiving new lif not goodl
If you don't like your write-ups in the class sections, you can find out who to
blame by looking up the class editors in the staff printed on this page. lf you made
two yards more against Louisville than we gave you credit for, or if you only had
three personals against you in the Franklin game, blame it on Chamberlin and
Trimble. The parentage of the rest of the stories will remain unknown, so you'll
iust have to rave in vain or chase the editor down in his Kuala Lumpur retreat.
Editor-to-be Cope and typists Abshire and Schneider had their hands in this
too, so we'd better mention them. Of course, Business Manager Niederhaus only
sold the most advertising in the history of the LinC land before deadline, tooll
Oh yes! And we want to thank Neely for fixing the LinC desk so the editor couldn't
get his drawers open. And as for the rest of the staff, they deserve credit for spread-
ing one night's writing over six months' time. V

A bass'-eye view of Hlortsy
Under the directing hands of Carl Hiortsvang for the third year, Evansville Col-
Iege's a cappella choir made the longest tour in its history. After heading north into
Michigan to Hiortsvang's home town last year and two years ago and south through
Kentucky and through Kentucky and Tennessee last year, the choir this year be-
came "New York or bust" minded and didn't bust. This long spring tour took them
through ten states and into two nations - the United States and Canada, and
covered a 2500 mile stretch of highway. High points of the tour were indianapolis,
Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., New York City, Niagara Falls and into Canada, and
finally Chicago. Unfortunately, the choir didn't tour during .Hell Week this year, but
time was had by all. The really tragic thing about
the whole trip was the fact that Professor Browne
had to leave Precious, his violin, in a New York
pawn shop to cover the expense of an evening at
the Stork Club, but, to quote Professor Browne
himself, "lt was worth it." He has his pawn ticket
though and hopes someday to regain his Precious.
in spite of this handicap a good
Shorter trips taken by the choir during the year
were to Vanderbilt University, and to the towns of
Vincennes, Oakland City, Mt. Vernon, Tell City,
and Morganfield and Henderson in Kentucky.
Through all this fun, "Fancy Clancy" mothered the
choir to a safe homecoming. Choir officers for the
year were Barney Sinnett, president, Connie Pietz-
ner, vice-president, Frank Parker, secretary-treas-
urer, Ethel Morehead, librarian, Rosemary Zus-
pann, robe chairman, and Bill Jones, platform
This year the Evansville College band was under
dual directorship. The batons of Professor Gay- Bmwne also wield, U mean ymd ,,,,,k,,
lord H. Browne and associate-director Everett
Northcutt have propelled it to a new height. Pro-
viding music for the basketball games, the band, although small, strengthened the
enthusiasm of the sports crowds. The band showed admirable spirit despite the
lack of sufficient support and the dearth of musical instruments, playing at pep as-
semblies and other school events.
Interest in the band at the college seems to wax and wane. The response to the
call for members was excellent among the college students lespecially the fresh-
menl at the beginning of the year, however, interestilagged until it was necessary
to call in outside musicians in order to have a satisfactory performing organization.
Professor Browne should be commended on his work with the band and Mr. North-
cutt has been Mr. Browne's right-hand man in developing the unit. It has been
through the diligence and persistence of these two that this musical organization
Although the band was slow in getting organized this year, due to its many new
members, it quickly became a smoothly performing band which was well received
at assemblies and athletic contests. It offered a variety of numbers throughout the
year which were well suited to the occasion. Climaxing their activities for the year
the band gave a concert in connection with Music Week. The performance showed
the results of many lunch-hour rehearsals and Sunday afternoon bouts with instru-
ments and baton. In view of this yeor's band, there is hope for the future.

Work is the pre-requisite for membership in the Thespian Society. Only by being
actively engaged in college dramatics can an Evansville College student expect to
belong. This work can be in any of the various fields of dramatics, acting, makeup,
stage-managing, costuming, or house-managing. A student is given active member-
ship only after a probationary period during which he must prove his value to the
active members. When he becomes a full-fledged Thespian the work really begins
if he is to be a good member.
This year the Thespians presented the Coffer-Miller Players in a historical drama
as their first offering of the year. Community Players were given guest tickets for
In December, Eager Heart was given for the fourteenth year. Changes in costume
and setting over previous presentations made the performance interesting and en-
ioyable for those who had witnessed it before as well as a great experience for
those who had never seen it. The music department gave full cooperation in pre-
senting Eager Heart.
The maior production of the year was the revival of Martinez's Cradle Song, pre-
sented March l in the college auditorium. Presented first ten years ago, in 1930,
this year's cast contained as many of the alumni cast as it was possible to get.
A record audience witnessed the play with emotion and enthusiasm.
Following Cradle Song, a reception was held in the women's lounge to celebrate
the fourteenth birthday of the dramatics department at Evansville College.
Officers for the first semester were Kip Niederhaus, president, Maryrose Roach,
vice-president, and Dorothy Rothrock, secretary-treasurer. For the second semester
they were Art Fritz, president, Maryrose Roach, vice-president, and Bernice Schnak-
enburg. Active members are Wilma Brackett, Arnold Brockmole, Ivor Campbell, Art
Fritz, Kenneth Feuerbach, Peggy Gleason, Arnold Holstine, Alfred Johnson, Bettye
Johnson, Catherine Kessler, William Kueker, Kip Niederhaus, Mildred Morgan,
Betty Lou Richard, Maryrose Roach, Dorothy Rothrock, Bernice Schnakenburg, Wil-
fred Susott, Russell James, Thelma Small, Frances Coudret, Beatrice Buente, and
Associate Thespians are Jean Bartley, Iris Buck, Frederick Damm, Kingston Ely,
Louise Froelich, Vance Hartke, Eunice Henke, Connie Pietzner, Tom Trimble, Charles
Weber, Ellen Witherspoon, Morris Jarboe, and Janette Rodman.
9 THESPIAN PRODUCTIONS
The first presentation of the Thespians this year was the Coffer-Miller Players in a
historical drama entitled Shadows Across the Throne. The Players, who are two in
number, were old friends to many who knew what to expect, but to all, the play
was a source of pleasure. Jess Coffer and Martha Miller, or Mr. and Mrs. Coffer if
you prefer, were extremely gracious and talked to back-stage visitors after the per-
formance until they had to leave.
The Thespians gave this play to the students through their activity fee and also
gave free guest tickets to all Community Players who desired to see the produc-
tion. James Webster, an alumnus of Evansville College, was stage manager.
Cradle Song by Gregorio and Maria Martinez Sierra, was the only maior pro-
duction undertaken by the Thespians. It was presented March 1 in the college au-
ditorium, under the direction of Miss Pearle LeCompte.
The plot concerns a convent of nuns who are confronted with the problem of a
baby girl left at their door. With the aid of the doctor, they are enabled to keep
and rear the child. Grown to young womanhood, the foundling finds herself in
love, and so reluctantly leaves her "mothers" of the convent for marriage and the
The cast, with the exception of six students, was made up of alumni of the college
and former Thespians. The play was a revival of one given ten years ago by the
Thespians. Parts in the present production were taken by as many of the original
cast as possible.
The remarkable and beautiful setting for Cradle Song was created and executed
by James Webster with the aid of student Thespians.
Appearing before a large and appreciative audience were alumni Viola Kuebler
Poggemeier as the Prioress, Mabel Dillingham Nenneker as Sister Joanna of the
Cross, Margaret Rowe as the Vicaress, Alma Schuessler Vaughn as Sister Maria Jesus,
Mardelle Bingaman McCormick as Sister Marcella, Jane Howard Roth as Teresa,
and Kenneth Helmbock as the Doctor. The student participants were Thelma Schlueter
Small as the Mistress of Novices, Catherine Kessler as Sister Inez, Frances Ray
Coudret as Sister Tornera, Maryrose Roach as Sister Sagrario, Frederick Damm as
Antonio, and Kingston Ely as the Poet.

0 UNORGANIZED STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION
ln the school year of 1938 and 1939 ltwo years after the great fioodl one Bill
Comiskey, pre-law and post-Princeton man, decided that it was time that the un-
organized students on the campus should have a voice in the College student gov-
ernment and also carry out a social program of their own comparable to those of
the fraternities and sororities. So Comiskey set about organizing the unorganized
with the able assistance of Jay Brown, George Ruston, George Koch and Margaret
Lehmann. Evidence of the success of this organization by these people may be seen
by turning to the Administrative Board in this year's LinC and looking at the picture
of George Koch, Student Association treasurer. Not only politically but socially
were the unorganized organized, for a number of social events were planned and
carried out last year.
This year, in the absence of Comiskey and Brown, George Ruston took over the
leadership of the association as president. Other officers elected for the year were
Virginia Nichoalds, vice-president, Margaret Lehmann, secretaryp and Clarence Kil-
lion, treasurer. The organization has not been as active so 'Far this year as it was last
year las you can tell by the picture of the officers instead of the whole clubl, but
with election time at hand organization and efficiency will undoubtedly reach the
old high set by organizer Comiskey.
9 GAMMA DELTA
For the past twelve years freshmen women have been given the opportunity to be-
come better acquainted with the sororities and their actives, and to express their own
personalities through Gamma Delta. After the pledging season was changed to the
second semester in the fall of 1927, this society was organized to satisfy the need
for an organized social group for freshmen women. Following the organization
meeting and party given by the Women's Council, Gamma Delta members are free
to conduct their own meetings and make what they can of their society.
On November 17 a "Sadie Hawkins" Dance was held in the Men's Lounge with
all guests costuming as citizens of Dogpatch. Marcella Horny in charge of arrange-
ments, was assisted by Sue Baskett, Kay Hirsch, Olive Coleman, Dorothy Bauer-
meister, and lone Budke. '
To celebrate the completion of finals the group planned a Leap Year Dance
which was given January 25 at the Colonial Club. Invitations were issued to all
women of the college to come and bring their best beaux. Mary Lou Miller who
acted as chairman was aided by Kay Hirsch, Dorothy Bauermeister, Olive Coleman,
Marcella Horny, Elizabeth Tichenor, and Nancy Lou Martin.
Gamma Delta officers were Nancy Lou Martin, president, Dorothy Surbeck, vice-
president, Rita Hayes, secretary-treasurer. Members of Gamma Delta were Minnie
Schmidt, Sharon Weiser, Dorothy Bauermeister, Marcella Horny, Nancy Lou Martin,
May Ella Ritter, Rita Hayes, Edna Vinson, Pat lngle, Anna Rose Brink, lone Budke,

The theme running throughout the entire program of the Y.M.C.A. this year has
centered about a better understanding of both national and international rela-
tionships with an emphasis toward world peace. The worship and discussion pro-
grams have been held each Thursday at 10:00 A.M. Among other things, the
Y.M.C.A. has been active this year in raising money for the far-Eastern student fund,
in cooperating with the religious council in sponsoring the retreat, and in securing
Kirby Page for a conference here June 6. In harmony with this general theme, the
Y.M.C.A. presented the Armistice Day Chapel Service in which the "way of guns
and swords" was shown in sharp contrast to the "way of the cross."
A series of very interesting discussions was held this year dealing with the or-
ganization and work of the Non-Partisan League for clean elections. Rev. .loe
Moore gave the Association a clear-cut picture of the need for, and effectiveness of,
Plans have been under way this year for a closer cooperation between the
Y.M.C.A and the Y.W.C.A. Several meetings were held together and a program
for uniting the two associations was discussed. The decision made thus for is that
the two cabinets shall meet together and plan the activities in coniunction with the
hope that in the near future the two associations may function as one.
The activities enioyed and performed by the two organizations this year included
the Christmas party held in the Men's Lounge, the collection and distribution of gifts
among the needy at Christmas time, and the Sunday afternoon program presented
at the Protestant Home for the Agedf
According to the tradition of the Y.M.C.A., the annual breakfast was held at the
College oven as a conclusion to the year's activities.
The officers for the year were Alfred Johnson, president, Oral Fisher, vice-presi-
dent, Jack Hargan, secretary, Max Thompson, treasurer, and Vance Hartke, social
chairman. Dr. McKown was elected faculty sponsor for the year.
Under the leadership of the following officers and cabinet members, the Y.W.C.A.
completed an outstanding year. These officers were: lris Buck, president, June Ham-
ilton, vice-president, Anne Benninghof, secretary, Mildred Stinson, treasurer, Mar-
garet Lehmann, program chairman, Anne Voelker, social, Ellen Witherspoon, wor-
ship, Luella Padgett, music, Jeanette Rodman, art, Connie Pietzner, books and
movies, Margaret Bass, world fellowship, a new division of the cabinet. ln the fall,
members of this group attended a conference held at Purdue University.
Social events of the year included the annual Big Sister-Little Sister party, hayride
with the Y.M., Christmas party, caroling, Valentine party, May Day breakfast, and
the annual Talitha Gerlach tea. As a new aspect of Y.W. activity, a copper tea was
given daily during final of the lst semester week for both students and faculty.
Also in this year's activity, the Y.W. worked with the Family Welfare this winter
in assisting a needy family of six persons. The college group collected clothes and
toys for the four children.
Many programs and parties were held with the Y.M.C.A. Plans were made to
hold ioint cabinet meetings in order to work toward a still better cooperation be-
tween the two g-roups.
Programs of the year included song fests, worship services, book reviews, and
talks by Miss lelia Hinkley, a Y.W. secretary of China, Maria Dayoan of the Phil-
ippines, Mrs. Lincoln Hale who formerly lived in Greece, Miss Mary Fretageot with
moving pictures of France, and Mr. Fred Shataro on Oriental products.

U ALPHA ALPHA
The meetings held by Double Alpha this year have centered around a consideration
of pastoral duties. A maior portion of the programs in the first semester were de-
voted to a study of counselling, in which the purpose, problems, and program of
counselling were discussed. The programs of the second semester were of a more
varied nature, covering such phases of ministerial activity as the administrative,
teaching, and calling duties, the minister's training, his human relationships, his re-
lation to the church, the task of a minister's wife, and the ministry to the sick.
The first meeting of the year was a fellowship supper in the Men's Lounge, Mon-
day, October 9, followed by a very impressive initiation service and an address by
Dr. E. M. McKown. Other highlights of the year included discussions led by Rev.
Hawley, Miss Cyrintha Terry, Rev. Hansler, Dr. Cavell, Dr. W. T. Jones, Rev. Reller,
and Rev. Moore. A banquet for members and their guests was given Monday, Feb-
ruary 26, and Mrs. E. M. McKown gave a very interesting account of the experiences
of the minister's wife.
The Holy Week services, conducted annually by the Double Alpha Club, were
planned this year to include as a central theme, the problem of suffering, with a
consideration of the necessity, discipline, and divinity of suffering.
The climax to the year's activities came with the outing held Friday, May 24.
Double Alpha Sponsor is Dr. E. M. McKown. The oliiicers are: first semester: J. A.
Leatherman, president, Wilbur Budke, vice-president, George Koch, secretary, War-
ren Lear, treasurer, second semester: George Koch, president, Harry Oldaker, vice-
president, Ralph Miller, secretary, Morris Jarboe, treasurer, and Warren Lear,
program chairman for both semesters.
The members of Double Alpha are Frank Butler, Bill Davis, Fred Mills, Joe Callen-
der, Lloyd Thompson, Harry E. Thompson, Wilbur Budke, James Chilton, Harry Old-
aker, Howdy Ellis, Charles Tyler, George Koch, J. Artley Leatherman, Morris Jar-
boe, Ralph Miller, Warren Lear, Thomas Myers, and Richard Denbo.
0 PRE-MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
The Pre-medical Association of Evansville College was organized in September,
1939, through the efforts of Mrs. Wyatt, Frank Merrick, and Bill Kueker. At 'the first
meeting Dr. Beghtel appointed a committee to draft a constitution for the club. On
September 29, the constitution was presented and approved by the Pre-med and
pre-dental students. The following week election of officers was held at which time
Bill Kueker was elected President, Frank Merrick -Vice president, Jean McGinniss
- Secretary and Jack Hargan -- treasurer.
The purpose of this organization is for the promotion of general medical knowl-
edge for the pre-dental and pre-med students as well as to increase interest in
medicine in cooperation with the doctors of Evansville.
Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month, at which time a doctor or
a nurse gives a lecture on medicine, or one of the members of the club gives a
paper on some phase of medicine. Don Schneider gave the first paper which was
on "Tularemia", this was followed by a paper on "Pneumonia" given by Art Stumpf

0 SECRETARIAL SCIENCE CLUB
On October 24, 1938, the girls of the Secretarial department met and formed the
Secretarial Science Club, for those persons taking courses in this department who
expect to do secretarial work after graduation. Its purpose also includes the form-
ing of contacts with women who are now in the business world.
The club held its first meeting of this year on October 11 at the Women's Rotary
Club, which the Secretarial Science Club regularly used for its monthly meetings.
For the second meeting ofthe year held on November 8, all the girls in the club
were invited to a "Potluck," at which time the membership of the club increased.
Mrs. Dean Long, special guest, and alumns Betty Baker, Beatrice Henke, Dorothy
Ann Clewlow, and Mary Duncan were present at this meeting. ln December, a
Christmas Party was held at the home of Mrs. Springer, sponsor of the club. A
"Potluck Supper" preceded the exchange of Christmas gifts.
A new feature of this year, the Personality Clinic, was introduced into the Club
at the first meeting of 1940 on January 10. Each member commented on the per-
sonal appearance of each member by secret ballot. At the meeting March 13, com-
ments were given on good posture and personality after a potluck supper.
Guest speakers for the meetings were: Miss Woods of the Courier, who spoke on
"What the Business World Expects of a College Girl," Mary Duncan who spoke on
"Daily Work Activities," Mrs. DeVry of the DeVry Beauty School on "Clothing", and
Miss Doris Kirk, physical education director at Bosse High School.
Monthly attendance prizes given during the year were donated by Mr. Butter-
field of Smith and Butterfield and were won by Eunice Henke, Jean Baskett, Caro-
lyn Kimball, and Mabel Wheeler.
The officers at the head of the club were: Nina Lee Abshire, President, Mariorie
Lamble, Vice-president, Peggy Gleason, Secretary, Mabel Wheeler, Treasurer, and
Hilda Wahnsiedler, Publicity Chairman.
0 HOME ECONOMICS CLLIB
On the fourth floor of the College building, along with the chem lab cmd the shut-
ter bugs' dark-rooms, is the home economics department, where E.C.'s coeds learn
how to get their man. ln this course the girls must first have designs before they
can realize their purpose. Later they learn to sew and to cook and to be a good
wife. And then, as if all this training didn't prepare them enough, they have to ioin
the home-makers' union - otherwise known as the Evansville College Home Eco-
Besides her technical training, every good Home Ec girl must develop her social
sensibilities. This is carried out via a social program extending throughout the school
year. To start this year off, the girls held an Indian pow-wow in a wigwam located
in the center of the Women's Lounge. The pow-wow featured a chili supper and
an lndian dance by four Bosse boys. Later in the year, Blanche Eble, Eunice Henke,
Eileen Bruner, Kay Suhrheinrich, Josie Lee Hill, and Miss Nichols, faculty sponsor,
attended a meeting of the Home Economics Association in Indianapolis. Besides
these two meets, the club held many other evening supper meetings.
Home Economics Club officers for the year were Blanche Eble, president, Mildred
Stinson, vice-president, Josie Lee Hill, secretary, Kay Suhrheinrich, treasurer, Eileen
Bruner, social chairman, and Eunice Henke, state club reporter. Active members are

The Evansville College student branch of the Association for Childhood Education,
national professional organization for teachers of children, is no longer an infant.
Organized a year ago last October by the elementary teaching students of the col-
lege, the organization is a healthy child, making itself heard already.
The year's activities began with a picnic supper at Vernita Weitzel's camp. At
this meeting ,all the eligible freshman women were invited to ioin the group. Then,
going from the frivolous to the serious, the A.C.E. met to listen to Miss Blanche Jung,
Evansville teacher. ln December, the Evansville college branch was the guest ofthe
city organization at a studio night at Washington School. Guests were invited to
participate in art activities possible at Christmas time. Another lecture and discus-
sion meeting was held in February at which Miss Louise Heim, Evansville teacher,
was the guest speaker.
One of the highlights of the A.C.E. year was the guest day tea given in March.
All members of the city A.C.E., principals and supervisors were invited. Miss Edna
Dean Baker, of the National College of Education, was the guest-of-honor and gave
a short talk.
The remainder of the year was given to social meetings and a report on the A.C.E.
national convention in Milwaukee. Miss Lucille Jones entertained the group at her
home for an informal "gabfest." The April meeting was named homecoming day.
Last year's graduate teachers were invited to return and give the present associa-
tion the benefit of their experiences. Following the national convention in April,
Miss Jones gave the college branch the highlights of the meetings. This meeting,
being the last of the year, was used for election of officers and planning for next
year. Following the business section of the meeting, the group had a picnic supper.
A.C.E. officers are: Kathryn Schneider, president, Maryrose Roach, vice-president,
Anna Claire Brown, secretary, Ellen Nolte, treasurer.
The members are: Margaret Bass, Anne Benninghof, Anna Claire Brown, Nellie
Jane Brown, Olive Coleman, Gladys Cooper, Frances Ray Coudret, June Hamilton,
Emma Jo Hatcher, Doris Heseman, Marcella Horny, Martha Hughes, Margaret Leh-
mann, Edith Mae Matthews, Ellen Nolte, Maryrose Roach, Emogene Schaaf, Mariorie

0 EC FLYING CLUB "W"-f'f ,,
No, they don't all fly in this one plane at one time
On February 5, 1940, of the recent school year, officers were elected and the constitution and by-
laws for the first Evansville College flying club were drawn up.
The flying club is primarily and directly an outgrowth of the Civilian Pilots Training Program which
became a part of the college curriculum for the first time at the beginning of this last school year.
Organized by the Pilots in the training program, as it were, it was entered into the by-laws that all CAA
students of the future would automatically become members, if they so desire, although membership in
the club is open to all students regularly enrolled in Evansville College.
The principal objectives of the club consist of endeavoring to interest others in the science of aero-
nautics, promote college flying, and in general, looking toward the continual advancement of aviation
in all its phases in the United States.
The flying club oliicial name is The Evansville College Flying Club Chapter of the National Intercol-
legiate Flying Club of the National Aeronautic Association of the U.S.A., Incorporated. The flying club
is not only an Evansville College organization, but as the name indicates, it is atifiliated with the Na-
tional lntercollegiate Flying Club. The NIFC is under the sponsorship of the National Aeronautic Asso-
ciation which has given active support and assistance to it. Through a ioint membership arrangement
with the NAA, each NIFC member is also an affiliate member of the NAA.
Each spring the NIFC holds an annual Intercollegiate Flying Conference in Washington and later in
the year a National Air Meet in some location decided upon by the delegates to the annual conference.
Regional air meets are also sponsored by the NIFC. An exchange of new ideas and club news through a
monthly news bulletin is carried on continually.

Club advisor for the current school year is Dr. Lincoln B. Hale. l
Club officers for the current school year are: Margaret Ploeger, president, Ray Hauck, vice-president,
Charles E. Miller, secretary, Paul Chamberlin, treasurer. '
The remainder of the enrollment is as follows: Bill Chamberlin, Arnold E. Holstine, Jr., lra Faith, Bob

0 OTM AND OTW
This group playing a game of rolling down to REO is a part of two organizations,
the out-of-town men, and the out-of-town women, commonly called the OTM and
the OTW. Rolling down to REO, as everybody remembers, is a currently popular
sport inaugurated by the fiscal policy of the College. The out-of-town students
favor this exercise as a reducing agent.
Both of these organizations are organized mainly for social purposes, and this is
the social function that they held this year. lt was a chili-coke-ice cream supper
itwo bowls maximum on the chilil. J. Leatherman, Howdy Ellis, and Vance Hartke
arranged for the party.
Of the two organizations, the OTW is slightly the elder, about a year older. Not
long after the OTW's brother organization, the OTM, was started, a plan was for-
mulated, signed, and delivered for a men's dormitory. lThat was in 1937.l The
plan was approved - "Good idee," said the trustees, the administrative board,
and the president. It still is an idea.
Dean Wahnita DeLong was the faculty sponsor of the OTW, and Dean .lames
Morlock was the faculty sponsor of the OTM.
Since both organizations are practically "brand new" yet, there is not much to
write about the traditions and customs of the OTM and the OTW. ln each there is
potential fellowship, potential friendships. This year, though not a productive one
from the standpoint of meetings, is a link that may lead to a fuller social life.

0 ATHLETIC BOARD OF CONTROL
The Athletic Board of Control was organized in September, 1937. ln the three years
since that time it has been very successful in fulfilling the purpose for which it was
The functions of this board are composed of somewhat routine approvals of ex-
penditures on athletics. However, the underlying function, which is of prime im-
portance, is the organization and coordination of the athletic program of the Col-
lege. This involves seeing that the proper amount of emphasis is put on inter-col-
Iegiote athletics in their relation to intra-mural competition and classroom work in
Toward furthering its function of stimulating community interest in the College
athletic program, the board has accomplished a number of things. First, it suggested
and brought about the moving of the football games from the College Field to Bosse
Field, where the community might be able to attend more conveniently. Second, it
issued complimentary tickets at various times to stimulate attendance at the football
games. This year the board arranged for the basketball games to be played in the
new Armory and promoted two double-header basketball games in cooperation with
Memorial High School. For the first time the Athletic Board of Control this year
sponsored the annual Basketball Banquet which was quite successful. These moves
with several other minor changes have materially increased the attendance and
interest in both the basketball and football teams of Evansville College.
The membership of the board is made up of representatives from the alumni, the
trustees, the faculty, and the students of the College. Leo Warren, the alumni rep-
resentative, serves as vice-president. Professor long, one of the faculty representa-
tives, is business manager, and Wilfred Susott, senior class representative of the
student body, is secretary. Four other faculty members, Dean James Morlock, Pro-
fessor Guy Marchant, Mr. R. E. Olmsted, and Professor Browne, with the iunior class
representative, Vance Hartke, complete the membership.

Evansville and DePauw when the Purple oftense bogged down. Featured in this

Next, packing their bags for a three day iaunt, the Aces were off to DeSales in
Toledo, Ohio. Coach Sacksteder's flashy crew completely outdistanced the Aces
in all but one department for a 7-O victory. The department mentioned was that of

0 E CLUB
The stalwarts of Evansville College, sweater or numeral winners in football, bas-
ketball, tennis, yell-leading, and student managerships, are members of an honor-
ary organization called the E Club. Symbol of their membership is the numeral they
wear or the letter E on their sweaters.
They have no regular meeting date, but. gather when necessity and the LinC
photographer, do a little prodding. Their meetings are held daily in football, bas-
ketball, and tennis practices. They meet quite frequently in football, quite frequently,
and the contact is very personal -- for example, the quarterback lRobert Floyd,
perhapsl is running down the field, and is tackled by an end lCharles Guardl.
Nothing could be more personal than this down-to-earth sort of thing.
Every organization must have a purpose. The E Club's purpose is to foster ath-
letics and a spirit of sportsmanship on the campus. One manner in which the Club
fosters athletics is to act as a talent scout for future athletes. And, of course, they
foster the spirit of sportsmanship by their own examples.
The long roll call of alumni members of the E Club is filled with memories of
basketball and football "greats" -- oflthe "wonder five" that was defeated in
basketball only by Indiana and Ohio State - of the days when football recruits
were gathered from the rough and ready engineering school, now extinct. The
present members will carry with them from this year the memory of a passable
football season, a very good basketball season, and an above-average tennis

' BASKETBALL CContinuedJ
Getting started with a bang after the personage of Old Man Football had passed on, the Evans-
viIIe's outstanding net.squad of '39 and '40 began practice officially on Monday, November 20.
Ever since classes started in December, some of the boys were out in the gym from time to time
iust passing the old apple around.
Prospects for this '39-'40 team were good for seven lettermen returned, six from last season
and one from two seasons back. Katterhenry, Prusz, Susott, Hartke, Doerner, and Montgomery
represented the returns from last year, and Woody Oestreicher, Gus Doerner's uncle, came back
from two years ago. Additional men including Carl Wiley, Bert Lindsey, Lowell Galloway, Benny
Zieg, Bob Crandall and Paul Silke made up the rest of the squad.
Well, after electing Katterhenry as captain, the team did just what all indications showed
they would, for in their opening game on the 7th of December at the local National Guard
Armory, fwhere all home games were played this seasoni, they zoomed over Cornell college
of Iowa 68 to 45. Number two game and victory came in the following week, December 14,
when DePauw felt a 43 to 31 set back at Greencastle, even with Katterhenry in bed with a cold.
Really getting hot in the third game on December 19 at the Armory, Evansville ran up 72
points to Louisville University's 43. Traveling over to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, on December 21,
the Aces, after an eleven point half-time disadvantage, began hitting and added Southeastern
Missouri Slate Teachers to their "defeated" list. The final of this tussle was 52 to 43.
Number five game came at the Armory during Christmas vacation on the 30th of December
when the fifth victory was gained at the expense of Kansas State 38 to 35. In this game Wilfred
Susott twisted his leg and was out the rest of the season.

Again the Aces shot the eyes out of 'em when DePauw lost a second game to the Purple at
the Armory on the second day of the new year. The score was 61 to 37. This brought the winning
streak up to six. Gus Doerner made 23 points in this game and it was long about this time that
the state began to watch this lad. Again making 23 points, Doerner led the Purple to their
seventh straight victory, this time over the Centenary Gentlemen from Louisiana, with the score
66 to 45. The victory came with a second half barrage of field goals by the Aces on the fifth day
of the new year.
Several adverse factors brought the win streak to an end on January 8. The late start and
icy roads all the way to Bowling Green, Kentucky, did their part to aid Western Kentucky Teach-
ers to defeat the Aces 52 to 45. Moreover, only Western's referee representative ofiiciated at
the game because Chick Springer, E.C. official, could not get through on account of the bad road
Still playing football on the basketball floor and using their coach besides, Franklin's Six-man
team won over Evansville 45 to 44 at the Armory on January 13 by a last half-second shot.
This game, the first double header with Memorial, made the second straight loss. But revenge is
sweet and the Purple got it when the team stopped the Grizzlies 37 to 32 the next Saturday
night Uanuary 201 at Franklin.
On January 27 the Earlham Quakers lost out in a 68 to 63 game in the second E.C.-Memorial
double header, making nine victories to two defeats for Evansville. New scoring records were
made at Louisville on January 29 when Evansville made 81 points for their high total of the
season to U. of L.'s 43. This was U. of L.'s 12th straight defeat and second loss to the Aces this

Carbondale on January 29 by the score of 37 to 32. This was the 16th vic-
tory for the Carbondale lads and the Acesr13th garne. Doerner was limited
to nine points and Katterhenry failed to score when Evansville lost their
fourth game of the season as Illinois Wesleyan handed the Purple a 44 to
29 defeat at Bloomington, Illinois, on February 6. The Aces never had a
chance in this game after they lost a 6 to 3 lead held in the opening
The tower in T,owery, who made 21 points, was too much for Evansville
on February 13 at the Armory, when Western Kentucky defeated the Purple
55 to 36 for the second time this season. This made the fifth loss. Another
setback, the fourth straight, came at Jasper on February 17 when E.C. met
St. .loseph's of Collegeville. The score there was 47 to 35. The final for the
year at Carbondale proved fatal for the Purple and White as Southern ll-
Iinois won its second victory in the season with the score 44 to 39.
When the finale was written to the whole state's inter-collegiate competi-
tion, it was found that Gus Doerner had come in second in individual scor-
ing honors for the state with 265 points to his credit. The winner of this
honor, Mosser of St. Joseph's, played 22 games to Gussie's 17. Gus, how-
ever, made an average of 15 10f17 points per game to lead the state in
average number of points per game. Other honcrs came to him when he
was chosen as a member of the all-Indiana conference basketball team by
Harold Harrison, Associated Press staff writer ot indianapolis. Ed Katter-
henry came in 10th in leading scorers and was given an honorable mention
by the above named newsman.

Since last season's tennis happenings were wrltten in last year's LinC, we are at a disadvantage this
year in writing a tennis story. At the time this was written, only one match had been played. The re-
mainder of the season's matches will be covered in next year's linC, however. iHow about it Cope?l
EvansvilIe's initial tennis match of the 1940 season was against Illinois State Normal and resulted in
a 4 to 3 victory for E.C. Out of the flve singles matches, the home boys won four, but they lost both
of the doubles matches.
The tennis season really started last fall when the annual membership tournament of the E.C. Tennis
Club was held. The singles matches of this tournament were never actually finished, but since Chris
Maglaris defeated Everett Cope, who was seeded number one at the close of the past season. Chris was
awarded number one position on the pre-season team. Cope, a past season letterman, placed second,
with George Becker, a letterman from last year's team and present captain of the team, third. Bob
Scheitlin, a letterman from last season, was fourth, Ivor Campbell, another letterman, fifthy while Ira
Faith, Willie Schroer, and Willie Baugh rated sixth, seventh, and eighth, respectively.
This seeded list may be altogether different at the end of the season. Any seeded player can chal-

may try by challenging either the seventh or eighth seeded players.
Tennis this year, and for the first time at Evansville College, is a maior sport. This came about last
spring when the Athletic Board of Control voted to accept tennis as a maior sport. Those on last year's
team received numerals and letters, but no sweaters. After this both sweaters and letters will be
Since tennis is a maior sport, the same rules govern it as do football and basketball. Each team
member is required to practice at least four days per week. All practice sessions and home matches are
held at the Garvin Park courts. Practice got under way fairly early this year because of the early date
of the first scheduled match.
The schedule for the rest of the season includes flve matches away and two home games. The five
away come altogether in the schedule. They are: April 12, Southern Illinois Teachers, April 19, De
Pauwy April 20, Earlhamp April 26, Indiana State, and April 27, Wabash. The last two matches at
home are on May 11, a return engagement with Southern Illinois Teachers, and a return match on May
15 with Indiana State.
As has been said before, four of last year's five tennis lettermen returned this year. Of these four,
Becker had the best last season record, winning more than half of his singles matches and winning seven
out of eight doubles matches with Ivor Campbell as his partner. The other two lettermen to return were
Cope and Scheitlin.

0 TENNIS CLUB
ln the 'fall of 1938 the remaining members of the previous season's tennis squad
met and formed the Evansville College Tennis Club. These four organizers- John
Armstrong, Arnold Brockmole, Ivor Campbell, and Wilfred Schroer- held a mem-
bership tourney in the fall to provide a stimulus for ioining the club. Thirty men
constituted the charter membership. The purpose ot the Tennis Club is both for
recreation and to develop material for the tennis team.
Through the organization of this club and the increased interest given tennis by
the students in general, tennis was made a major sport by the Athletic Board of
Control at the end of last year's season. They further voted to award letters and
numerals to last year's team and to give the future squads the regular awards of
letters and sweaters.
The second annual tournament was held last fall, but bad weather combined
with difficulty in finding time to play and the singles part of the tourney was cut
short by two matches. The doubles were completed, however, with Ira Faith and
Mark Lowe composing the winning team. This spring another tournament was held
and sponsored by the E.C. Tennis Club for all men except those who had won letters
Club otticers this year are Everett Cope, president, Ivor Campbell, vice-president,
George Becker, secretary, Ira Faith, treasurer, Arnold Brockmole, tournament chair-
man, Tom Trimble, publicity chairman, and Coach Slyker, club sponsor.

Women's sports have always had an importanl place in the campus life of Evansville College. For many
years basketball was the principal sport, but gradually different activities were added to the program,
a Women's Athletic Association was formed and more sports were featured. -
The local W.A.A. is a member of the State Association and participates in the annual Play Day which
is held at various colleges and universities in Indiana each spring.
For each girl who succeeds in securing a definite number of points, through participation in intra-
mural athletics and individual contests, there are specillc awards. These consist of medal, 600 points,
sweater, 1200 points, and chevron, 1500 points. The chevron is the highest athletic award which an
Evansville College girl can attain. The W.A.A. also sponsors tournaments of mixed doubles and singles
in badminton and tennis.
Oflicers who assisted Miss Stieler, the sponsor, in completing the program of the year's activities
were lois Jones, president, Bernice Schnakenburg, vice-president, Margaret Lehmann, secretary,and Nina
lee Abshire, treasurer, Eight cabinet members, who were appointed by the officers and served as heads
of particular sports, were also instrumental in seeing that the abiectives of the
organization were carried out. These cabinet members were Eunice Henke,
volley ball, Doris Julian, basketball, Ellen Nolte, tennis and badminton, Peggy
Gleason, swimming, Elsye Grossman, baseball, Jeanne Shively, horseback rid-
ing, Anne Voelker, hiking and skating, and Martha Blythe, speedball.
The members of the W.A.A. were: Lois Jones, Nina lee Abshire, Jlean

As football season drew near last fall, a number of aspiring yell-leading applicants.
ascended the stage to try out before the student assembly. Some of these were
Frances Ploeger, Jeanne Crisp, Evelyn Pearson and Bill Kueker. Kueker, being a gen-
tleman, let the ladies go first, and then when his turn came he took the stage, and
after the laughter had died away, he tried a brand new yell entitled "Fight, Aces,
For some reason or other, probably the war, Kueker didn't win, and the vacancy
in the yelling team lleft last year by Chet Lynxweilerl was filled by Evelyn Pearson.
Nardi Wintner and Peggy Gleason, carrying their three years' experience well,
made up the rest of the team.
After Wild WilIie's defeat, things were quiet for awhile till he decided he was
going to do a little yell leading anyway. It was on the night of the great Franklin
brawl game that he stepped into the limelight and led all the Memorial rooters
in "Fight, Aces, Fight." Or rather he led them all in a laugh session. On the whole,
however, things would probably have gone better for everyone concerned if Willie
had kept his professional dignity.

U CAMPUS NOTABLES
On the College seal, if you look closely, you will see a seven-
branch candlestick holding seven lighted candles. The symbol-
ism of the candles is as follows: A
At the lower left, the candle is named "Chremata," Greek
for "goods" or "provisions" which signifies economic develop-
ment. At the lower right is the candle "Hygeia" meaning
health. Returning to the left, the second candle is "Ana-
pausis" symbolizing recreation. The second candle from the
bottom on the right is "Koinonia" meaning social fellowship.
The third candle from the bottom on the left is "Sophia," S39-
nifying intellectual development. The third candle from the
bottom on the right is "PhiIokalia," meaning artistic appre-
ciation. And finally, the central and superior candle is
"Theosobia" meaning spiritual aspiration.
A number of years ago, the faculty decided to attempf
to choose two men and two women who personified the
ideals of each candle on the seal - a total of fourteen men
and fourteen women. Two years ago, it was decided that
the choice would be made on the basis of those who ap-
peared to best incorporate all the ideals of the candlestick.
And at the same time the choice was limited to seven men
and seven women, all of whom must be iuniors or seniors.
Arthur Fritz is editor of the Crescent this year and an ac-
tive Thespian. He is a senior and a member of Phi Zeta fra-
ternity. Ed Katterhenry is president of the student body and

9 CAMPUS LEADERS
Leaders, are they? What makes them leaders? Has not
everyone been a leader at sometime in his or her life?
What, then, distinguishes this group from the rest of
the student body?
Others may be leaders in their church, in their work
outside of college or within their social group where-
ever it may be. But these six have, during their years
at Evansville College, put themselves into their college
life and emerged victorious over it as leaders, pointing
the way 'for others. Their ideas, their inspiration, their
enthusiasm, their personalities have been outstanding in
influencing and directing the campus life at Evansville
College during their years here.
These are those who were chosen by the deans of
the college, not only because they are best known,
9 CAMPUS LEADERS
but also because they have been most valuable to the
college. They are those who have been working to
organize and plan our campus life so that we, their
fellow students, may receive a greater enioyment and
benefit from it. These are the ones who themselves
received the greatest benefit from their college educa-
tion. These are the ones we are to follow if we, too, are
to profit most from our college life. On these we depend
to carry on into life the qualities of leadership and per-
sonality that they may have learned either here in
college or before their entrance. It is their example we
expect to follow in life as well as in college. These
are our campus leaders.

In the city of Evansville, Indiana, on the muddy waters of the Ohio, surrounded
by the hills of southern Indiana and Kentucky, stands Evansville College-the
guiding light of some 500 students. This college, although also noted for its unusual
football records, was the talk of southern Indiana and Holland this year because
of the incarnation of Evansville's old wonder five on this year's hardwood. To
immortalize this outstanding basketball team, the LinC photographer takes youhto
Evansville's game with 'Earl-

had to put in more bleach-

the Evansville Aces had
won seven straight games
before dropping two and
winning back one more. ln
this game, the Aces 'fought
all the way to drop the
Earlham Quakers for acount
of 68 to 63.
The Evansville squad is
unusual in several ways.
First of all, of the twelve
men on the squad six live

they come out fighting.

having a share in the household duties and
the cooking of meals. These six Flying Aces
are Captain Ed Katterhenry, Gussie Doerner,
Vance Hartke, Irvin Prusz, Wilfred Susott,
and Woody Oestreicher. Besides living to-
gether at school, these boys also all come
from the same "neck of the woods" in
southern lndiana's hills. Katterhenry and
Prusz come from the hamlet of Holland,
Vance Hartke hails from Stendal, Doerner
from Mackey, Susott from Elberfeld, and
Oestreicher from Lynnville-all neighbor-
ing towns and none over 1000 in population.
The other squad members are Harold
"Monk" Montgomery, Lowell Galloway,
Carl Wiley, Paul Silke, Bert Lindsey, and
Chris Maglaris. The coach of the team is
William "Victorious" Slyker.
A further oddity about the team is the
fact that Oestreicher is Doerner's uncle.
Woody, the heaviest man on the team, might
be able to make Doerner say uncle.
Regular starters on the team are Mont-
gomery, center, Katterhenry and Doerner,
forwards, and Prusz, guard. The other guard
position is filled alternately by Susott, Hart-
ke, Oestreicher, or one of the other team
The Ace rooters are ardent as the last few minutes of the
game go on. As this shot was taken, Hartke had iust fouled
an Earlham man from behind.
Between halves, the College band plays while all the spec-
tators run after cakes. The band is directed by G. Hamilton
Browne, Evunsville's music department head.
Score keepers Enlow and Hahn are kept busy with changing
the board for the three point a minute Aces. Seven minutes
left to play.

"Life in College," said the edi-
tor to the little freshman coed,
talking about the LinC. And the
glimpse this LinC affords of E.C.
would not be satisfactory unless
it included a notice of the religion
of College life. Below is an .E.C,
student's prayer. I
"ln times of doubts and ques-
tionings, when our belief is per-
plexed by new learning, new
teaching, new thought, when our
faith is strained by creeds, by
doctrines, by mysteries beyond
our understanding, give us the
faithfulness of learners and the
courage- of believers in Thee, give
us boldness to examine, and faith
to trust all truth, patience and in-
sight to master difficulties, stabili-
ty to hold fast our traditions with
enlightened interpretations, to
admit all fresh truth made known
to us, and in times of trouble to
grasp new knowledge and to
combine it loyally and honestly
with the old. Save us and help us,
we humbly beseech Thee, O
- Bishop Ridding
