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" FOREWORD QContinuedJ "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" 9 DEDICATION 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" DEDICATION CContinuedJ 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 "found it mandatory to frown from his advisory chair" N QADMINISTRATION ll iv ll fl D' I I Richard McGinnis, A.B., LL.B., President of the Board of Trustees U BOARD OF TRUSTEES President ...............

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. W 'iwbgsskg .,.,-.,-.lv eil ul l i -- M-1 r 1 Q l 1 . 1 1 1 1 l al C EXECUTIVE SECRETARY ai 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. l 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- tion. 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. .

Beghtet, Stteter, Frarter, E. ttenke, Wyott, Retstng T 0 DEANS 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. Y? 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 Mu. 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. Wahnita DeLong, Dean of Women Hartke, Pollard, Magazine, Morlock, Chandler, Killion, Sansom 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!

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 punch bowl. lt might be added that this committee has concurrent iurisdiction over rushing and pledging problems with the Women's Intersociety Council, league of amity and friendship.

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.

OR FROM 134 TO 58- UNDER SMITH DON TODRANK 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 president. 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 be overcome. 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 O eniafu. 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 finally published. 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 mood. ' Returning in January, we enioyed the Thespian production of Noah.

Ogenicwi 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 Cross base. 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 lgeniaad 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- ested citizens. 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 Christmas holidays. The second semester got underway before we got accustomed to the stream- lined style adopted by the Crescent in December. 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 pledging activities. 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- O eniou 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 Prom. 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- bashl. "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.

Much publicity, some erroneous, was issued during 1938-39 concerning the possibility of Evansville College becom- ing an independent branch of Indiana University. This movement was not com- pleted-for reasons known and un- known. The Student-Association elections re- turned to the Sig-Phi Zeta alliance with Edgar Katterhenry, Kathryn Schneider and George Koch elected for 1939-40. The final week of school emphasized the importance of our place as upper- classmen. We entertained the seniors with the traditional reception, took part in the May Day ceremonies, Baccalau- reate and Commencement exercises, and sponsored the second annual Junior Prom. Joe Cook again chose the Prom Queen. We added to his iob the selec- tion of Prom King--Their Maiesties Frances Wolf and Edgar Katterhenry. . , ,VW We lgeniolu. Ivor .Campbell's LinC was not pub- lished before the close of the school year, but those who got copies during the summer found it a volume represent- ing a great deal of hard work on the part of the editor and also Frank Klei- derer who acted as staff photographer. We were supreme! We were seniors! Our last year of college life gave us an opportunity to direct and to set ex- amples for the entire student body. Some of us were selected to assist in instruc- tion. As president of the Student Associa- tion, Edgar Katterhenry was the chief di- rector of the student body and he, along with the other officers, Kathryn Schneider and George Koch, represented the stu- dents to the administration through the Administrative Board. When the school year opened, Richard Morris and Jean McGinness were ap- pointed assistant instructors in the Chem- istry and Biology departments, respec- tively. From the North came a new Dean in September, for after years of faithful service to Evansville College, Charles E. Torbet retired. With Dean Lincoln B. Hale came courses offered by the Civil Aero- nautics Authority. Fred B I a c k b u r n , George Ruston, Wilfred Susott and Nardi Wintner were among the students to enroll in the courses. Football had gotten well under way with iHerb Jeude the only senior on the squad, Arthur Fritz had started editorial- izing in the Crescent, and LinC ads were being contracted for by Clifton Nieder- haus before the election of senior class officers was completed. Much to the surprise of many, the election of class president was a dead- lock between the two candidates, lvor I AMES MCREYNOLDS B.S., Science, Chemistry Pi Epsilon Phi 2, 3, 4.

Bill Emig, Everett Northcutt, and Martha Blythe were easily elected into the other offices. After four attempts to hold an election that would break the tie, Bill Emig was moved up into the office of president as a compromise, and the two presidential candidates were made co-vice-presi- dents. Organization for class activities got under way when the committee chairmen were appointed by the president. Wilma Brackett was named chairman of the so- cial committee, Ivor Campbell, senior week program, Jay Leatherman, class gift, and Herb Jeude was named to di- rect the commencement week activities. Because Jeude did not return to school the second semester, Don Todrank was appointed chairman in his place. The event that stood out during the 1940 football season was the serious iniury received by Clinton Easley during the Earlham game. The unimpressive record of six losses, one win, and one tie during the gridiron season did not rep- resent the complete story, for the post- mortem statistics showed that E.C. topped their opponents in everything but touchdowns scored. Herb Jeude com- pleted his fourth year on the football squad and was awarded a white letter sweater. Evansville College enioyed one of its most successful basketball seasons dur- ing l939-40. The team won nine straight games before being defeated. Sopho- more Wilfred Doerner led the state in high scoring honors during our schedule, but was beaten by St. Joseph's Mosser, because St. Joseph played several more games than E. C. Doerner's average per game was highest in the state. O efubad Wilfred Susott and each received a white and Irvin Prusz earned The annual Gamma Ed Katterhenry sweater award his third letter. Epsilon Sigma award for the second year went to Cap- tain Katterhenry. The Thespians revived the Cradle Song with most of the original cast reappear- ing. I Evansville College was host to the ln- tercollegiate Oratorical Meet during the spring of the year and Frank Kleiderer was our entry in the men's division. Announcement of Dr. Smith's resigna- tion came as a surprise to most of us. Our College experience with him had been most pleasant and fruitful, and it was with regret that we accepted the fact. During the year, a series of supper meetings helped to promote fellowship in our class. Words can not be found to describe the rapid movement of activities during the last two months of school lfor one reason, the story had to be turned in be- fore thenl. Senior Week, May Day, Class Day, Junior Prom, Baccalaureate, and Commencement, along with all the social activities of the final week, made the close of our college careers a memorable one. School is almost over and' we are about to be graduated. We look forward to a new phase of experience, anticipat- ing again the usual period of greenness. ln the years to come we may look back at this volume for words and pic- tures that 'will remind us of College. Ev- ansville College is our alma mater, may we always be proud of her. And, may the future be pleasant for all members of the class of 1940.

Hartke E Henke O O 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- ricular activities. 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 ofthe Crescent. 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 Lamble gets psycho-analyzed Yer' D Heseman A. Johnson L. Jones J. Julian R. Kemp G Koch M. Lehman M. Lowell C. Maglaris C. Mann 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- Mann holds a Iunior meeting S- MT A 'zu iw achoalds E.

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.

Wheeler I O 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. nr lrf.

This was made up for partially by the newcomers from other schools. 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- ham. 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.

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 the class "swung out" at a T-dance in the T-hut. With the Federalists playing, the customary good time was had by all. The committee for arrangements included Gussie Doerner, Elsye Grossman, and Edith Mae Matthews. 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 ' V3 4' N 3 R gil Warn . '1' ' ' ' ' ll A Jig' 4- ' ,.,' 5, 4 ' fi ' 1724 I - 3 ' A' . , ,. J 1,1 Q :.,4 ' 1- , 7.

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. .S 9 NO PICTURES Minnie Anderson Thornton Appel Dorothy Armstrong Ruth Atkinson John Baker Margaret Bass William Baugh William Behnke Robert Boswell Thelma Brittingham Anna Brown Bea Buente Russell Bufkins Paul Catt Harry Chandler Everett Cope Lawson Curnel Frances Denbo Charles Duvall Ira Faith Robert Floyd Clarence Folz Richard Folz Kathryn Froelich Tobin Groves Frank Haas Jack Hargan William Harris James Henry Josie Lee Hill John Hull Noble Hunt Paul Jones Doris Julian Catherine Kessler Bettye Lant Mabel Legeman Virginia Lilly Charles Lippoldt John Mackey Gilbert Magazine Walter Moll Harold Montgomery Louise Morris Kenneth Moxley Dale Phares George Pickels Frances Ploeger Margaret Ploeger Carolyn Reese Maybelle Reichert Betty Jane Rice William Ridgway Addison Riepe Herbert Sabel Don Schneider Norman Spetner Ruth Stippler Dwight Stovall Katherine Suhrheinrlch Hilda Wahnsiedler John Wallis Leonard Weiss Vernita Weitzel Charles Wesselman Carl Wiley , Carl Winnebald Rosemary Zuspann FRESHMAN OFFICERS Doerr, Buuermeisfer, Horny, Wulf? .SL ' L.

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 proper cultivation. Feeling the need for unity, these new collegi- ates elected Arthur Stumpf as temporary class president to be aided by Gerald Whipple, vice president, Jeanne Crisp as secretary, and treasurer Mark Lowe completed the temporary platform Dogpatch comes to E.C. at the Gamma Delta Li'I Abner Party 34 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- ballers needed a cheering section, which was apt-a ly handled as Evelyn Pearson was added to the Prof. Marchant's freshman engineering class Q R. Dlmmett E. Doerr R. Eberhart M.

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, Bob Bock, Bill Davis, Jim Buthod, Betty Wintern- Alpha Phi Omega Members-you name themg we haven't got time. Y J. Pierce - 4 heimer, Elizabeth Tichenor, Gresham Grimm, Mel- vin Block and May Ella Ritter were soon swinging M, E, nine, out on the school loyalty song. Musicians Wintern- heimer, Bock, lra Dale and Minnie Schmidt be- came colleagues in the Philharmonic Orchestra. Paul Chamberlin, Robert Eissler, Bob Hart, Har- C. Robinson old Steinmetz, and Elwood Miller were accepted and enrolled in the local Civil Aeronautical Asso- ciation of the United States Government. These boys have soloed and are members of the local R- Rodman chapter of the National Intercollegiate Flying Club. Chamberlin was elected treasurer of this organization. Frosh athletes Bert Lindsey, Bob Crandal, H'Rose Lowell Galloway, and Paul Silke went to the hardwood for E.C. 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 Ellis. The class was sponsor of'a dance for all fresh- men and their dates held January 22 in the Men's Lounge.

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. 0 NO PICTURES RAY ARENSMAN WILMA ARNETT LEWIS BARBRE SUE BASKETT ROBERT BAUMGARTNER WARREN BESING MAURICE BIGGS MELVIN BLOCK ROBERT BOCK LOUIS BRANDES JAMES BROKAW JAMES BUTHOD ELIZABETH CAMPBELL VIRGINIA CAMPBELL RAY CARNAHAN PAUL CHAMBERLIN WILLIAM DAVIS ROBERT EISSLER KINGSTON ELY LOWELL GALLOWAY ANNABELLE GANN MAE DELLA GRACEY GRESHAM GRIMM JANE HARRIS ,, , ,, D.

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 of May. 9 OFFICERS FIRST SEMESTER SECOND SEMESTER Wilfred Susott ........... ......., P resident .........,... .............

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.

IMA wYA1t MOTTO '-vlNclt QUAE PArirun" COLORS scAm.s1 AND wmre 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. 0 OFFICERS FIRST SEMESTER SECOND SEMESTER Bettye Johnson .........................

E- 'fffininf-WX Q 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. 0 OFFICERS FIRST SEMESTER President ..................... ...Dorothy Rothrock SECOND SEMESTER President ........................ ............ElIen Nolte Vice-Pros. ..... ..........

The Theta Sigma Society began their first meeting of the year with a pot-luck supper- held in the women's lounge, for the purpose of installing the new officers for the year. This was followed by a Hallowe'en party in October at the home of Chris- tena Mann. The annual Theta Sigma-Gamma Delta party was held this year in November, the Theta's entertaining the freshmen women with a Barn Dance in the Men's Lounge. 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 the freshmen. 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 Day party held for the parents of the active members.

Fritz and Mann have said plenty about that al- ready.l 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? Bufklns, M. Thompson, Hartke, P.

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 ideas. 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.

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 chairman. 0 BAND 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 has survived. 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.

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 the performance. 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 Warren Lear. 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 world. 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. l Bennlnghof, Lehmann, Ruston 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, Elnora Jandebeur, Dorothy Surbeck, Bettye Stephens, Betty Winternheimer, Betty Eckstein, Evelyn Pearson, Jeanne Horton, Annabelle Gann, Olive Coleman, Jean Bartley, Rose Henke, Mary Lou Miller, Martha Hughes, Dolores Ulmo, Jeanne Crisp, Marjorie Sandefur, and Kathryn Hirsch.

Johnson 0 YMCA 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, this League. 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. 9 YWCA 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.

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 and a paper on "Heart Disease" given by Bill Kueker. On March 4, Dr. Keith T. Meyer, roentgenologist, and Stephen Grahn, x-ray technician, presented the pro- gram on "X-ray in Medicine and Surgery." On March 19, Edward Wolfgang, phar- macist, spoke on "Pharmacy in Medicine", and on April 2, Mead Johnson Corpora- tion presented a film on "General Medicine." The concluding program of the year was presented in May by Dr. Grace Hawthorne who spoke on "Anesthesia in Sur- gery." Frank Merrick, vice-president, was responsible for these interesting papers and talks. The charter members of this organization were: Newell Bailey, Lewis E. Barbre, Malcolm Bawell, Maurice Biggs, Melvin Block, Anna Rose Brink, Arnold Brockmole, Russell Bufkins, Robert Cullen, Frederick Damm, Paul Dassel, Kingston Ely, Russell G. French, Jack Hargan, Arnold Holstine, Paul Jones, William Jones, William G. Kueker, Bert G. Lindsey, Raymond E. Maier, Frank C.

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- nomics Club. 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 Dorothy Armstrong, Dorothy Bauermeister, Rosemary Bower, Eileen Bruner, Helen Buente, lola Jean Clark, Ruth Dimmett, Blanche Eble, Bettye Eckstein, Mariorie Greer, Mary Haag, Eunice Henke, Josie Lee Hill, Virginia Holderby, Jeanne Horton, Lois Jones, Doris Julian, Betty Lant, Mary Edna McCutchon, Louise Morris, Evelyn Pear- son, Frances Ploeger, Mildred Stinson, Frances Stockfleth, and Virginia Whitehead.

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 Schnake, Kathryn Schneider, Elinoriane Truman, Adrianne Termenstein, Anne Voelker, Vernita Weitzel, Virginia Wheeler. 1 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. e-lime ,me ,Me Need! 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 Reising, George M. Ruston, Nardi Wintner, John Hull, Edward Meginnies, George Pickels, Oren Sterchi, Robert Hart, Thornton Appel, Kingston Ely, Harold Steinmetz, Robert Eissler, and Tom Trimble.

Thompson, Leatherman Holdorby, McCarty 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. X M I COMPLIMENTS OF Compliments of W G B F C. B. McCLEARY and.

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 physical education. 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. P.

Under a sizzling sun these potential pork-hide toters toiled until the 30th when Rose Poly's engineers forsook their sliderules long enough to iourney to E-town. Under a Ieaden sky on a muddy gridiron, the Engineers capitalized on the breaks in their favor to better the Aces 6-0. Clinton Easley, freshman fullback from Marion, Kentucky, distinguished himself by plowing the line for an average of 7.5 yards per try. After licking their wounds, the Aces girded their loins, and embarked up the Ohio to engage Louisville University in a battle to the finish. And boy what a battle it was!

A weak Evansville punt well returned, combined with a penalty, put the Aces' backs to their own wall, which weakened under the U. of L. pressure, giving the Cardinals their touchdown. Defeating the fond hopes of the student body who were promised a holiday in case of a win over old DePauw, the following Saturday saw a scoreless tie between Evansville and DePauw when the Purple oftense bogged down. Featured in this game was the much-worked-upon pass defense of the Aces which clicked like a charm. Bad luck, Lady's naughty cousin, was around too, for Gil Magazine received an iniury in the opening minutes which ousted him for the remainder of the season. The homecoming Evansville-Earlham game had a pall of gloom thrown over its gayety by the serious iniury of Clinton Easley. Easley's mishap necessitated a re- arrangement of the Purple backfield which proved to be a decided handicap for the Aces throughout the remainder of the season.

' FOOTBALL CContinuedD 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 "Monk" Montgomery, whose always-good punts were superb. "Monk" also got off to a 60 yard gallop in this game for a near touchdown. After scoring in the first two minutes and leading for three quarters, Hard ,luck again caught up with the Aces to let Hanover connect for seven points and down the Purple warriors 7-6. Montgomery, in his new fullback position, presented the outstanding performance of the game. The only Ace victory was chalked up in the following game with Georgetown University. To "Goan" Brandes goes the credit for the two point edge responsible for the victory. ,Brandes blocked a Georgetown punt which resulted in a safety for the Aces. As lf it wasn't time for her to stay away for good, Lady Luck rode the winless Franklins' bus to E-town and saw to it that the depleted Ace squad was set bock on its heels in its final and probably most colorful game, 19-14.

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 season. P The officers for this year were: President, Irvin Prusz, Vice-president, Raymond Hauck, Secretary-Treasurer, Charles Guard. The members were: William Behnke, Lawson Curnel, Wilfred Doerner, William Emig, Robert Floyd, Russel Goebel, Charles Guard, Owen Hamilton, Vance Hartke, Raymond Hauck, Herbert Jeude, William Jones, Ed Katterhenry, Maynard Libbert, Chris Maglaris, Harold Montgomery, Irvin Prusz, Wilfred Susott, Bernard Wintner, Ivor Campbell, George Becker, Everett Cope, Robert Scheitlin.

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. Katterhenry sinks another under the basket shot. Doerner coming from behind. Katterhenry does lt again as Doerner looks on. 0 BASKETBALL fContinuedD 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 conditions. 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 season.

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 minutes. 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. C a p t a i n Ed Katterhenry wins the Sig basketball award for his second time.

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- lenge another who is no more than two positions above him. Anyone interested in getting on the team 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 awarded. 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. Scheitlin hits an averhand as Faith watches 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 or numerals. 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. The club membership includes: Arnold Brockmole, lvor Campbell, Wilfred Schroer, .lack Hargan, Bob Scheitlin, Ira Faith, Les Ewing, Everett Cope, Frank Russell, Ken- neth Moxley, Herman West, Maynard Libbert, Frank Haas, Charles Lippoldt, Barney Sinnett, Max Thompson, Bill Kueker, Chris Maglaris, George Becker, Bob Reising, Revere Peters, Jack Hahn, Mark Lowe, Crayton Mann, Tom Walton, Bob HoFfman, John McConnell, Russell Bufkins, Bob Bock, Addison Riepe, Willie Baugh, Art Stumpf, Don Schneider, Ed Doerr, Gresham Grimm, Wilfred Susott, Don Lumley, Tom Trimble, and Frank Parker.

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 Theby, Elsye Grossman, Margaret Lehmann, Dorothy Rothrock, Eunice Henke, Ellen Nolte, Anne Voelker, Mary Ella Ritter, Blanche Eble, Mabel Legeman, ' Frances Stockfleth, Kay Suhrheinrich, Ruth Stippler, Doris Julian, Louise Morris, 'I Virginia Holderby, Anna Rose Brink, Kitty Mueller, Vernita Weitzel, Helen Buente, Beatrice Buente, Virginia lilly, Ann Benninghof, Mary Haag, Marcella Horny, Virginia Whitehead, Geraldine Young, Kathryn Hirsch, Martha Blythe Olive Coleman, Annabelle Gann, Rita Hayes, Leona McCutchan, Dolores Ulmo Bernice Schnakenburg, Jean Bartley, Rose Henke, Dorothy Bauermeister 'vwwrh G. f S., K.fX illl?41'f' 0 'bil' at Qc!

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, Fight!" 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.

This year they were Ivor Campbell, Bill Emig, Bettye Johnson, Ed Katterhenry, Frank Kleiderer, Jay Leatherman, Everett Northcutt, and Kathryn Schnei- der. If you were to think about what main activities each of these persons was prominent in this year, the list would probably read like this: Ivor Campbell, debater and past LinC editor, Bill Emig, athlete and senior president, Bettye Johnson, campus religious and social activities, Ed Katterhenry, student president and athlete, Frank Kleiderer, debater and public speaker, Jay Leatherman, mu- sical and religious activities, Everett Northcutt, student band leader and ace trumpet player, and Kathryn Schneider, student associa- tion secretary and iournalist. Katterhenry, Leatherman, and North- cutt are members of Phi Zeta, and Campbell, Emig, and Kleiderer of Pi Epsilon Phi.

Leatherman Everett Northcutt Charles Tyler Frank Parker Nl-.iff ff 'Xf 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 captain of the basketball squad.

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. Nina Lee Abshire Bettye Johnson Kathryn Schneider X X IYOMPLIMENTS OF , FURNITURE co.

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- ham College. The citizens of Evansville lpop. lO5,000i iammed the National Guard Armory for the game till Dean Long, athletic business manager, had to put in more bleach- ers. So far in their season, 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 ' W- together in a co-op house, Before each game and at the half the boys grip hands in a huddle before they come out fighting. At the tip off, Montgomery is up and Hartke already has his elbow in his man's ribs.

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 members. 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. a 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. A ' fW"'N .

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 Lord. Amen." - Bishop Ridding
