This first year of peace after almost four years of World War hnds Evansville
College "on the march" to help in shaping the new world we fought for and laid
careful plans for. Today is the promised tomorrow of yesterday and here at Evansville
the visions of the far-sighted men into whose hands was placed the destiny of the Col-
lege are at last becoming a reality.
As the new Engineering and Science Building on the southeast corner of the campus
pushes its way skyward, stone by stone, the faculty and student body of the college
are ever looking ahead to the continuation of the expansion program which includes a
Student Union Building, a Gymnasium and a heating plant.
The site of the Engineering and Science hall, whose three floors will be the new
home of the chemistry, biology and engineering departments, was dedicated on
November 24, I944. The ceremonies were part of the 25th anniversary program of the
moving of the College to Evansville from lVloore's Hill, Indiana, where it was
founded in 1854.
The "growing pains" which were experienced this year at the College were more
easily "taken in our stride" because we had only to step outside of the Administration
Building and look at the new structure to realize with a feeling of pride that our
College had accepted unflinchingly its responsibility - a bigger College to prepare
the youth of today for a place of leadership in the new world of the coming years.
This is a building year! Yes, Evansville College is on the march!

E owe a debt to those men of Evansville College who put aside
the hopes and dreams and ambitions of their future to fight and
to die to give us the freedom we are privileged to enjoy today. That
debt 'can hardly be paid by this solemn and reverent dedication -
To the men who did give the fullest measure - life itself - as
well as to those who postponed their futures to take up our fight
and win our victory, we can only make this pledge:
Here at the college where you sought to prepare for life - and
where many of your comrades-in-arms have returned to take up
that preparation - there will always be in our hearts the spirit of
each of you who made possible the continuation of the American
May we all ever be worthy of the gift paid by those men at a
price so precious as Life!
Coming to Evansville in 1939 from Carle-
ton College, Northfield, Minnesota, where he
served as personnel director, Lincoln B. Hale
was made dean and registrar of Evansville
College. In 1940 he became acting president
and was made president in 1941.
Dr. Hale received his B.A., M.A., and
Ph.D. at Yale University. From 1927-1930
he lived in Salonica, Greece, where he served
as assistant director of Thesalonica Agri-
cultural and Industrial Institute. He is an
In past years President Hale has devoted
much of his time to civic activities, but this
last year he has been spending practically
all of his time on the college's development
program. His theme has been "Evansville
College is on the march," and truly it is.
Under his direction the proposed Engineer-
ing and Science Building has come into being,
and it is hoped the Student Union Building
will be under way in the future.
Several trips have been taken by the presi-
dent and many meetings attended in his effort
to bring as much to the college as possible.
VVith the close of World War II there was
at Hrst a slow stream of veterans entering
Evansville College under the G.I. Bill of
Rights. This later turned into a flood as more
and more men were being discharged. Ap-
proximately half of the total enrollment this
year was made up of ex G.I.'s. President Hale
immediately saw that facilities at the college
were inadequate, so he set about to see what
could be done. Additional 'instructors were
employed, an extra classroom added, and the
eating facilities improved. The president suc-
ceeded in obtaining several war housing proj-
ects from the federal authorities, to aid in the
housing shortage for veterans and their fami-
The college under his careful direction is
moving forward, and will soon be one of the
great colleges in Indiana.
BOARD UF TRUSTEES
Richard R. McGinnis -- President
In the last analysis the trustees "are" the
college. It is they who have final authorityg
they constitute the legal entity of Evansville
Their most important duties include the
determination of policies of the college, the
selection of the president, and upon the presi-
dent's recommendation, the selection of the
faculty, as well as provision for financial sup-
port of the college.
In practice, the president of the college is
the point of contact between the college and
the trustees. They function very much as do
the directors of a business corporation. How-
ever, as the name implies, they are trustees-
trustces for the thousands of persons who
have contributed to the support of Evansville
College. It follows that they are men and
women of the highest type in whom the pub-
lic has complete confidence.

The- "spirit of 46" has finished his masterpiece. The
unveiling is about to begin. As we look at the canvas
what pictures of the seniors will we see?
Let us look at the section devoted to the expression of
the freshman life of the class of 46.

and proved to the upperclassmen that we were not a
class of weak frosh. '
As freshmen we became members of the choir and other
organizations such as The Secretarial Club, the A.C.E.,
and Alpha Phi Omega.

Sophomores! Imagine! No longer did we have to meekly reply
"freshman" when asked what year we were. Now, we too, could look
down upon someone.
We started the year off with an election. As a result, our oflicers
were: Ariel Schrodt, president, Bettye Byrd, vice-president, Dorothy
Pirtle, secretary, and James Ritter, treasurer. Guy B. Marchant was
chosen as our class sponsor. He will remain as sponsor during our
junior and senior years, too.
The sophomores were not ones to be left out of anything. In fact,
you would find them participating in almost every activity and as
members of committees, sororities, and fraternities. Sophomores on
the basketball team 'were Jones, Helm, Pasek, Ritter and Whipple.
VVhile these boys were performing on the hardwood, Hazel Overfielcl
was out there leading the fans in cheering.
The Crescent and LinC staffs were aided by Mary Lou Bischmann,
Norma Lee Dunning, Kilburn Durham, Pat Forsythe, Ray Franks,
Steve Horner, Lois Hyland, Harry Lieberman, Jim Ritter, Monica
Senecal, and Betty Willner.
Trying hard to be Bernhardts were Black, Blackburn, Dobbins,
Helmbock, Kuntz, and Ritter. Henry Preher was elected president
of the choir and Dave Helmbock served as pre-Med president.
Time has marched on, the end of the semester is here. We've had
a grand time as sophomores, but are looking forward to next year
when we'll be back as juniors and upperclassmen.

Gamma Deltas got to work in earnest and elected Doris Witt, president:
Carol Golden, vice-president, and Marilyn Ramsey, secretary-treasurer.
Gave "Smorgasbord and the Aces" at their pep assembly - went "Scotch"
with the Thetas, became story-book characters with the Sigs, and finally
joined the Castys in their pajamas at the annual sorority parties. They
ended a successful semester with the annual Coronation Dance.
Bubbling over with school spirit, we freshies went into the choir, the
basketball team, Crescent and LinC staffs and yell leading with a bang.
Carole Miller, Joe Fulford, and Lois Huck comprised three fourths of the
pep staff. Many of our freshman athletes among the girls took honors in

The Evansville College student branch of the Association for Childhood Education,
national professional organization for teachers of children, is now five years old. The
purpose of this organization on our campus is to provide activities through which stu-
dents preparing to teach in the elementary school will develop some appreciation of
the work that is being done by this organization in providing a more effective educa-
tional program for children.
The year's activities began with a party for the new students in elementary educal
tion at Miss jones's home, the faculty sponsor. At the second meeting, last year's
graduates, who are now teaching in the Evansville schools, were special guests. They
told about the program in the city schools and of some of the interesting experiences
that they have had with children.
One of the high lights of the year's activities was the meeting in which Geraldo
Dannemann, an Evansville College student from Brazil, told the group about the
educational program for children in his country.
Twice during the year the college branch of A.C.E. has been invited to meet with
the city and county branch. In November, a demonstration of audio-visual materials
with groups of children was given at Washington School and in February, a style
show displaying suitable clothes for the classroom was held at the Hotel McCurdy.
The year's activities closed with a picnic in Audubon Park in Henderson, Kentucky.
At this meeting, officers were elected and plans for next year were discussed. A.C.E.
officers are: Chestine Kishline, presidentg Polly Martin, vice-president, Vivian
Koehler, secretaryg Norma Jean Koch, treasurer. H
Alpha Phi Delta, scout service society, was organized in the fall of 1941. This
year two candlelight initiation ceremonies were held, bringing the membership to an
all-time high since the Alpha Phi Delta charter was drawn up.
Two week-end trips were planned, both to Camp Koch, Cannelton, where the
local Girl scouts have their camp headquarters. Several service projects were carried
Oflicers of the year were Polly Martin, president, Doris Witt, vice-president,
Dorris Kiesel, secretary, and Bettye Schwiersch, treasurer. Brenda Helming was
chairman of a committee appointed to revise the Alpha Phi Delta constitution.

Under the sponsorship of Professor Dean Long, the Alpha Phi Omegas started
off the year with a group of -eight members. During the year several new members
were initiated, plans for an overnight hike and a wiener roast were carried through,
basketball posters were handed out and taken care of, and the old-clothing drive was
handled by the A.P.O.'s
Officers chosen for the group were Bill Elmendorf, president, Dick Schwambach,
vice-president, jack Yates, secretary.
The Evansville College group is the Gamma Mu Chapter of the National Scout
Service Fraternity. Alpha Phi Omega is second only to Phi Beta Kappa in number of
chapters. The motto of the group is Leadership, Friendship, and Service.

Kappa Chi, ministerial fraternity of Evans-
ville College, met every two weeks during the
past year. At these meetings dilferent ministers
in the city were guest speakers.
Under the leadership of President August
Stork, the onganization sponsored the Holy
Week services here at the College. During
that week members of Kappa Chi had charge
of a radio program for the Deaconess Hospital
The following new members were initiated
this year: Charles Taylor, james Moss, ,lake
Yeager, Denzil Liebert, Chester Ross, Robert
Bailey, Paul Howard, Romule Buchanan,
and George Clewlow. Other members include,
August Stork, presidentg Laban Fraser, vice-
presidentg Dick Schwambach, secretaryg
Thomas Kyle, treasurer, John Collins, Robert
Miller, and Chester Mahan. Another new
member is Professor Edmund Warne, director
of religious life at Evansville College who
along with Dr. Edgar McKown, dean of the
College, serves as sponsor.
Starting the school year with approximately
52 members, the Catholic Club, renamed the
Newman Club, accomplished many things,
socially and otherwise.
Discussion of religious problems, including
the causes and results of the Reformation,
was led by Father Gabriel Verkamp, pastor
of St. Benedict's Church and sponsor of the
organization. In addition, the club held
several evening parties throughout the year
at St. Benedict's School.
The purpose of the club is to give Catholic
students of Evansville College an opportunity
to meet and discuss religious problems of the
Catholic Church. The organization has 100
years of history behind it, and was started by
john Henry Cardinal Newman in 1845. This
club is a branch of the national intercollegiate

Smith, president, Paul Scott, vice-presidentg

Starting the year off with new recruits, Mrs. Margaret
Taylor Shepard, director, turned out one of the best choirs
that Evansville College has ever had.
The choir's eventful year was climaxed with its spring
concert given in May, and its performance for Gov. Gates at
the Hotel McCurdy.
Officers elected for the year were Henry Preher, presidentg
Dick Schwambach, vice-president, Fauntella Barnett, secretaryg
Bill Elmendorf, treasurerg and Marge Snodgrass, librarian.
Dedicated to all World War II veterans-
those who have returned as well as those who
will not - the 1946 LinC got under way
early in the fall semester with the appointment
of James G. "Johnny" Johnson, director of
public relations and journalism instructor, as
the 1945-1946 yearbook sponsor.
Under the guidance of Dorothy Hebbeler,
editor in chief, Pat Forsythe, assistant editor,
Mary Dannettell, business manager, and
Aw' Editor Pa' Forsyme Harry Lieberman, assistant business manager,
and Edifof Dot Hebbeler' the LinC began to take shape. Helping it to
grow were ten junior editors: literary, Bettye
Schwiersch, administration, LaVon Miller,
activities, Luella Kendall, society, Dortha
Mason, honoraries, Polly Martin, student, Chestine Kishline, beauty, Pat Forsythe,
sports, Ray Franks, calendar, Lois Hyland, class pictures, Jack Yates. Mitchell
"Stretch" VVeinstock, the staff photographer, had a rather hectic time "shooting"
people, but we believe he'll survive.
Added to the usual difficulties was the fact that the LinC existed without an office
or cubbyhole of any kind - every available space was being used by professors and
students. However, in spite of this, all copy has been turned in, the pictures taken -
the 1946 LinC is ready for you. We hope you like it.

In recording it, The Crescent made history with its
forward-looking editorial policy of hacking campus
events and plugging for an active Student Council.
Another step forward was taken when the paper
advocated regular political campaigns and platforms
in Student Government elections in order to obtain the
most capable oliicers possible.
A better paper was made possible by insisting on
separation of student publications and campus politics,
thus putting the choice of staff members on the basis
Editor Rubylee O'Bryan, Patricia Adams and Monica
Senecal-who held the ofliees of managing editor and
assistant editor, respectively-strived to better the

Still in its swaddl'ing clothes, Qit's now one year
oldl, the E.C. Press Club has quickly moved up
to the position of one of the favorite campus or-
ganizations. It now boasts more members than any
other campus club.
Primary Press Club purposes are: to heighten in-
terest and improve the ability of student reporters
and to bring the level of student publications up
to and keep them at highest possible journalistic
levels. Business meetings this year have been con-
fined to the furthering of these purposes.
What do they do in their free time? Well, to be
frank, they haven't any-but, back in the days
when men were scarcer than A's from McKown,
Press Clubbers formed their own "Get Our Girls
a Date Society." Now it's been changed to "Get
Our Vets a Date Society"l
Dinners, informal dances, and a Christmas party
at which nonsensical gifts were exchanged high-
lighted two seasons of mad work and mad fun. To
top it all off, the pride 'and joy of the club were
its officers: Mary Dannettell, president, Chestine
Kishline, vice-president, Ray Franks, secretary, and
Dan Mitchell, treasurer, replaced by Roy Chapman
when Dan enlisted in Uncle Sam's club.

The E Club is an organization made up
solely of athletes with varsity letters. Its pur-
poses are for cleaner and better athletics on
the campus and the fostering of finer sports-
manship among the students. It was organized
fifteen years ago, but the absence of lettermen
has limited its activities. Since the recent
successful basketball and football renewal, the
club is again active.

terdenominational, and includes men and women in
The organization is recent, being founded in
1945. An effort is made to provide stimulating dis-
cussions, opportunities for worship, and aid in local
and world service projects.
The year's work got under way following a re-
treat' in the country in September. The Indiana
- Christian Student Association Conference at Turkey
Run in October was attended by 28 from Evans-
ville's SCA. The two main service projects were I
collections of soap and seeds for war relief. i

Early Saturday morning rehearsals in a cold auditorium, holidays spent
in painting scenery, hot chocolate and Miss LeCompte's gingerbread at
rehearsals, last minute costume and dialogue changes, ad libbing through
the last part of the second act the night of your performance . . .
The Thespians went through all of these this year in presenting their
two major productions of the year - at Christmas there was the annual
"Eager Heart," and then in january our first major play, "The New Lady
Bantock," a comedy in four acts with Smith, Brinkley, Hevron, Ritter,
Buthod and Buthod, Harmon, Dannettell and Helmbock. Rehearsals were
kept lively with Hevron's and Ritter's incessant clowning, Dannettell's
ready wit, and Sissie Buthod's clever remarks.
"Quality Street" by Barrie went into rehearsal in March. The cast
included Dobbins, Brinkley, Heady, Buthod, Sachs, Blesch, Mann, Drig-
gers, Delker, Klaus, and Smith. The Thespians put in a lot of work each
year to make their productions successful, but despite hard work, and
tiring rehearsals, we always manage to have plenty of fun.
' VETERANS URBANIZATIUN
Oficers for both semesters.
Parker, Bruner, Lemcke, Ross, Clark, Preher.
Hicks, Kincaid, Bryant not present.
All World War II veterans who enroll in
Evansville College automatically become mem-
bers of one of the newest organizations on cam-
pus, the Veterans Club. The group, of which
Dr. Francis P. Buller is sponsor, was formed
at the beginning of the 1945-46 school year.
At that time, it had only 36 members. In No-
vember, additional veterans registered for the
mid-semester program, making a total of 100
ex-servicemen. The new semester brought ap-
proximately 235 more, swelling the membership
list to 335.
Ben Nahmias was appointed temporary cha'ir-
man of the club in September to supervise the
organization process. Donald Cline, James Bru-
ner, and William Lemcke were appointed to
investigate veterans' organizations 'in other col-
leges and universities. Copies of constitutions
were received in reply to several of their in-
quiries and David Parker, John Master, Miss
Lucille Egnew, John Clewlow, Jack Deitsch, and
Eldridge Fortman were appointed to draw up a
constitution for the E.C. group.
In the latter part of October, a constitution
based upon one received from the University of
Illinois was adopted. It was decided that the
purpose of the organization would be: "To pro-
vide such aid to any veteran regardless of age,
sex, race, or creed as may be derived from mu-
tual discussion and social contact."
At the same meeting, ollicers were elected to
serve for one semester. John E. Masters was
president, David Parker, vice-president, Henry
C. Preher, secretaryg James Bruner, treasurer,
William Lemcke, sergeant-at-armsg and Chester
Ross, chaplain. Mr. -Masters withdrew from
school later in the semester and Mr. Parker
assumed the duties of president. Elections for the
second semester were held the first week in Feb-
The first group activity of the Vets Club was
a chapel program which was presented on No-
vember 2. Ben Nahmias, Philip M. Pittenger,
Henry C. Preher, Robert Wiggers, and Chester
Ross spoke on their impressions of the foreign
lands where they had been stationed.
On December 5, the veterans were in charge
of a radio program over "Evansville College
Time" commemorating Pearl Harbor. Another
of their December activities was a "smoker"
held in the Coed Lounge the evening of Decem-
ber 20. Herb Fillmore, personnel director at
Servel, Inc., spoke on engineering. Present plans
are to have other meetings of this type to gain
information on various vocations.
One of the largest undertakings of the Vets
Club was the sale of toys made at the Dis-
abled War Veterans factory. A booth was set
up in the main hall of the College and proceeds
were sent to the disabled war veterans. Bill
Lemcke was in charge of the project. His com-
mittee members were Frank Kincaid, Ben Nahm-
ias, and Rudy Deller.
The ex-servicemen are also participating in
school activities, such as 'intramural sports pro-
gram, the College Bowling League, and the bas-
ketball team. Henry Preher, a veteran, was
elected president of the choir.
The vets bowling team is composed of Bob
Glosup, John Shutte, Harold Lively, Dick Boink,
Lester Fishman, Bill Cline, and Paul Banner.
Among the vets out for basketball are Gerald
Whipple, Rudy Deller, Jerry Pasek, Dick Boink,
Joe Fulford, Dee Cadick, Jack Ryan, James
Gryder, Charles Fowler, Harold Bailey, Bob
Lautenslagen, Richard Hildebrand, John Sud-
doth, Paul Schmidt, and Les Ewing.

Last year someone dubbed the twelve girls
who live at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Lincoln
B. Hale, the Hales' Belles. This apparently was
a good name, for it stuck.
The girls are all either freshmen or sopho-
mores and come from three states of the United
States and Costa Rica, Central America.
Janie Garrett, Betsy Baskett, Ione Ptlug, Hazel
Overfield, and Florene Varner are all sopho-
mores. Janie hails from Owensville, Indiana,
and is majoring in elementary teaching. Betsy
comes from Henderson, Kentucky, and is major-
ing in social science. Ione lives at Mackey, In-
diana. Hazel Dean is a pre-Med student from
Henderson, Kentucky and Florene Varner is a
social science major from Grandview, Indiana.
Betsy, Janie, and Florene are probably known
to you as assistants in the library and Hazel
Dean is one of our yell leaders.
The freshman girls are Miriam Curtis, music
major from Mt. Vernon, Lois Potter, music ma-
jor from Winslow, Helen Morlock, elementary
teaching major from Wadesville, Frances Wise-
man, music major from Belmont, Illinois, Lila
Grant, English major from Dixon, Kentucky,
and Marilyn Ramsey, music major from Rock-
port, Indiana. Fanny Van Hulfel, music major
from Costa Rica, hasn't yet decided whether she
is a freshman or a sophomore.
The girls live in four rooms of the Hales'
house. Eight of them sleep in bunk beds ar-
ranged around the walls of the large bedroom
and four of them sleep in the small bedroom
adjoining the large one. There is a bath for each
bedroom. Another bedroom has been turned into
a snack nook and there the girls may cook and
eat whatever their hearts desire. A radio has
been put in that room, so everything is quite
Downstairs, the living room has been con-
verted into a study and twelve desks line the
walls. Here quiet hours are enforced from one
until four and from seven until ten o'clock. Oc-
casionally a student takes herself to the base-
ment where she can read aloud or sing or learn
a speech without disturbing the other girls. When
company calls, they are taken upstairs to the
snack nook to talk or eat, as the occasion de-
Each Wednesday evening all twelve girls,
Miss Swigart, Mr. Dasch, and Mrs. Merrill are
the guests of Dr. and Mrs. Hale at dinner. Af-
terwards, Mr. Dasch, Miss Swigart, Fanny and
Marilyn go to Philharmonic rehearsal and the
others are usually off to the basketball game.
Life is not all hard work, though. There are
usually hen parties going on in some remote cor-
ner and someone is always being mysteriously
short sheeted. There are gay times enough and
sometimes too much. That's when Mrs. Hale
steps in upon the scene or sends Betsy up to say,
"You kids can be heard downstairs." Between
the work and the play at the Hales' residence,
there is never a dull moment for the Hales'

With a total of seventy-three members, the activities of Gamma
Delta, a first-semester sorority for freshman women, got under way
early in the fall term.
The first social event was a Halloween "tacky" party in October,
followed by the three campus sororities' parties for the Gamma
Deltas. In November, dressed as book characters, the freshmen
journeyed through storybook land with the Sigs. Next, the Thetas
entertained, using a Scotch theme, and in December, the Gamma
Deltas, complete in nightgowns and pajamas, went to a "Night
Before Christmas" party with the Castys at the Westhaven Gun
Also during the semester, the sorority was in charge of a radio
program, sponsored a bowling team in the College league and two
teams for the girls' volleyball tournament, put on a basketball pep
assembly, collected and delivered Christmas gifts for the Marine
Hospital and cut silhouettes at the local U.S.O. One of the members,
Carole Joy Miller, was selected Phi Zeta Sweetheart 5 and the
biggest Gamma Delta event was the all-campus formal dance, "Mid-
night in Manhattan," in the McCurdy Gold Room, January 22.
Doris Witt was the sorority's president, with Carol Golden, vice-
president, and' Marilyn Ramsey, secretary-treasurer.

Oh, Red and While, we love you best,
Through all the years you"ve stood the test --
The Castalian Literary Society members got their
1945-46 year under way with a "wienie" roast at
the home of Ruth Bernhardt Calumj on Newburgh
Road just before the Fall term began. With Mary
Dannettell at the helm, the Castys organized their
activities, and to start the ball rolling took in four
pledges--Eleanora Dyson, Betty Cunningham,
Charis Kuntz, and Carolyn Ford.
A "bonfire -cosy" oflicially opened the social sea-
son, the Castalian troupe taking over the lawn of
Nancy Winslow's home Ven masse" to make the
evening a smouldering success. The Castys hit the
hay on October 6, when they engaged a big wagon
full of straw and invited their dates for the ride
which culminated in a big feed at Winslow's again.
Later in October the pledges were given first de-
gree and were entertained at dinner at the Glass
House in Henderson. The month closed with
a Halloween scavenger hunt.
The traditional Literary Tea was held November
11, "The Egg and I" being reviewed by guest
Marie Horton Woods. Pat Smith walked away with
the Scholarship Award.
Castys sewed up the intramural volleyball title
early in December. And on the 10th "The Night
Before Christmas" theme dominated the party given
for the Gamma Deltas at the West Haven Gun
Club . . . costumes of "nighties" . . . a big fire-
place . . . a huge Christmas tree branched over
brightly wrapped gifts. Pre-Yuletime events in-
cluded a party with the Philos in Jim Buthod's
basement .... Umm! Fun!
Campus organizations found Castalians in many
key posts-Pat Smith executed duties as Thespian
prexy, with Ann Seiler' as vice-president and Caro-
lyn Ford Quillian, secretary-treasurer. Chestine
Kishline, who led the Castys the second semester,
was ACE president also, with Vivian Koehler as
secretary of that group. Pat Smith held the presi-
dency of the Catholic Club. Lucille Miller Engle-
bright was first semester vice-president of Alpha
Phi Delta, while Mary Dannettell and Chestine
Kishline were president and vice-president respec-
tively of the Press Club. And didn't Chestine make
a lovely Basketball Queen?
Castalians figured prominently in the field of
publications-Pat Forsythe, assistant editor of the
LinC, Mary Dannettell, LinC business managerg
Betty Byrd, assistant business manager of the
"Crescent"g Vivian Koehler, secretary of Women's
Council, Betty Byrd, sophomore class vice-presi-
dentg juniors Ann Seiler and Frances New, vice-
president and treasurer, respectively, of their class.
And Vivian Koehler, vice-president of the senior
Three from the ranks were honored in Who's
Who in American Colleges and Universities-
Chestine Kishline, Pat Smith, and Mary Dannettell.
Vivian Koehler and Ann and Madoris Seiler made
the Dean's List first semester.
The Spring Rush Party was held 'in the Empire
Room of the Vendome, with Frances New as Rush
Captain. Fifteen girls pledged their loyalty to the
Red and White. The Pledge Tea followed at the
home of Nancy Wilson. Pledge Dinner and first
degree initiation was the next event at the Mural
Room of the Vendome.
Later in the spring the gals had their annual
week-end outing, and the formal dance climaxed

Yes, they're the Sigs-an integral part of the
Evansville College campus since the sorority
was founded at Moore's Hill College in 1856.
Fifteen years later the sorority, originally known
as the Sigournean Literary Society, became the
Gamma chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta, but
dropped its national afhliation because of anti-
fraternity laws passed by the College. The Sigs
reorganized at Evansville College 'in 1919 and
ten years later adopted the Greek letters Gamma
During 1945 and 1946 with the guidance of
Miss Leberman, new sponsor, another successful
year was added to the 90 years of Sig history.
The three new members who pledged following
the fall rush party were guests at the pledge
dinner at the Old Mill. The next big event on
the Sig calendar was the Gamma Delta party-
a Mother Goose Book come to life with every-
one dressed as her favorite nursery rhyme char-
acter. For the holiday season the sorority placed

Rush Captain Bettye Steinback was in charge
of the annual winter rush party, a formal din-
ner in the Vendome Empire Room. The twelve
new pledges were guests at the annual pledge
tea given by the alumni at the home of Eleanor
McCool. First degree initiation was given at
the pledge dinner in the Mural Room of the
Vendome. Pandemonium broke loose during Hell
Week but everything settled down in time for
the alumni dinner celebrating the Sigs' ninetieth
birthday. But things never got too quiet for
sprinkled in among other activities were the
traditional Phi Zeta-Sig parties.
As in years past the Sigs were active in all
phases of campus life--scholastic, honorary,
governmental, and social. Bettye Steinback
served as treasurer of the Student Government
Association. Dot Hebbeler edited the LinC with
the help of Bettye Schwiersch, literary editor,
and Polly Martin. Rubylee O'Bryan was editor
in chief of' "The Crescent," and Patricia Adams
was managing editor. Betty Willner was copy
editor while Shirley Olson was news editor.
Other journalistic Sigs who wrote for both "The
Crescent" and the LinC include Dortha Mason,
LaVon Miller, and Lois Huck. Phi Beta Chi
membership list included the names of Dorothy
julian and Pat Adams. Sig representatives on
Intersociety Council were Mary Helen Gray, J.
Luhring, D. Hebbeler. Byrd Dell Ohning and Dot
Hebbeler served on Women's Council. Betty
Willner was president of the Student Christian
Association while Doris Witt headed Gamma
Delta. Polly Martin was Alpha Phi Delta prexy
and vice-president of ACE. Pat Adams headed
the Secretarial Club while Dorothy Hebbeler
served as vice-president, June Teague, secre-
tary, and Dot Mason, treasurer. Sorority
representatives in Who's Who in American
Colleges and Universities were Francile Mac-
Donald and Pat Adams.
All in all, under the leadership of presidents
Hebbeler and Luhring, the Sigs had a good year
-a year which future Sigs can look back on

Starting the semester with twenty-one members and having its ranks
steadily increased with returning servicemen, Phi Zeta Fraternity carried
on in the traditionally active fashion. During its 78th year Phi Zetas had
one of their largest pledge classes, numbering forty-seven men. Hell week
had its usual' hilarity, concluding with a Friday night road trip and Satur-
day night's initiation in the gym.
At theVSeventh Annual Phi Zeta Sweetheart Dance on December 12th.
Prexy Elmendorf presented Carole Joy Miller as the Phi Zeta Sweetheart
for the year.
Stag parties and parties with the Sigs throughout the year were enjoyed
by all. The Phi Zetas were active on campus, boasting prexies of Student
Government Association, Phi Beta Chi, Student Christian Association,
Choir, and the Veterans Organization. The three men selected to appear
in Who's Who were all Phi Zetas, Brown, Elmendorf, and Yates.
The Phi Zeta Dinner Dance in May was, as usual, the big event of the
year with Prexy Davis presiding. With the Phi Zetas proving themselves
as leaders on the campus, they enjoyed a very successful year. The Fellow-
ship song united them more closely in brotherhood as it has the brothers
heretofore, who are now returning from the four corners of the world.

Hard hit by the war, which took practically all of its active members into service,
Pi Epsilon Phi is again swinging into form, with over thirty active members the
second semester. Fortunately, a few active members remained throughout the war
period, maintaining an unbroken record of membership extending back through more
than ninety years to the founding of the Philomathean Literary Society in 1856,
some nine months before Moore's Hill College itself. Incidentally, the old yearbooks
tell us that during the Civil War, only one Philo, a cripple, remained active, holding
meetings with himself until the others could return to their studies. It is things such
as this that make members of Pi Epsilon Phi justly proud of its history.
The alumni of Pi Epsilon Phi, known as Phi Alpha, Inc., inactivated by the war,-
have resumed their monthly dinner meetings, and hope soon to have clubrooms again
in the downtown area such as those maintained before the war.
The social program of the fraternity has been very active throughout the entire
year, with hardly a week passing without an informal party of some kind, either a
stag supper or a get-together with members of the Castalians and Thetas, our sister
organizations. The annual spring formal, top social event of the year for members of
the organization, brought many actives in contact with alumni members whom they
had not seen for several years. The social season came to a close with the annual
Memorial Day outing. Y
Emphasizing the four cardinal principles of their creed - scholarship, loyalty, serv-
ice, and fraternity - the members of Pi Epsilon Phi stand ready to back to the fullest
the progress of Evansville College and their Fraternity.

Aces 165 Opponents 8.
That's the final score of the 1945-46 basketball season for Evansville College's fast-
breaking cagers. This is what was entered in the won-and-lost column of the record
books but there was more to the season than that.
just bear with us and read on, friend.
Evansville College, loaded with confidence, stepped up into a higher-ranking league
in 1945-46, a league in which some of the finest basketball combinations in the country
True, the Aces did engage many of the same foes that have been matching points
with the Southern Indiana five for the past 10 years, but several new and strong
teams also appeared on the expanded 24-game slate.
Coach Emerson Henke, turning in his third season as Evans-
ville tutor, had three lettermen to fall back on and hoped for
the best in freshman strength. But while an ample supply of
freshman and reserve power was on hand the Ace squad was
dealt a hard blow midway of the season when Cale Englebright,
a two-year veteran, left the Evansville ranks. Wedding bells
rang for Englebright in january. He didn't enroll for the
second semester, thus missing Evansville's last eight games.
The high light of the season, which was one of the greatest
in several years from the enthusiastic school spirit, and attend-
ance standpoints, was the Midwest College Tournament at
Terre Haute during the Christmas holidays.
Evansville, competing in the eight-team event for the first time, clawed its way to
the finals by dropping Southern Illinois Normal, 49-45, and Eastern Illinois, 56-46,
in games the Aces had to come from behind in the closing minutes of the route to win.
Indiana State, the host school in the tourney, staved off the tired Evansvillians in
the championship go however, and kept the first place trophy in Terre Haute by
tagging the Henkemen, 49-41.
A well-balanced Evansville five got off on the right foot with victories over its first
two opponents. Camp Breckinridge fell before the whirlwind Aces first, 60-41, in
the curtain-raiser on November 21 in the Armory.
Evansville's only other service team foe of the schedule, George Field, bowed to
the Purple and White netters, 61-48, the following week to give the E.C. charges a
clean record of two wins and no defeats.
Then those bone-crushing Sea-Cards from the University of Louisville had to invade
the Pocket area and spoil things for the high-flying E-towners. A Louisville radio
station, carrying the game to the Sea-Cards' fans via Western Union, gave the final
score as 52-41, Louisville.
The Louisville setback evidently did wonders for the Purple cagers because they
countered to win their next seven scheduled contests. Little Anderson was first on
the list. The Aces unleashed their greatest burst of explosive power against the out-
manned Anderson crew and racked up an 86-19 fcorrectj victory on the losers' court.
Climaxing a two-day road stand in the northern part of Indiana, the locals slapped
Central Normal at Danville, 62-45, with comparative ease. Southern Illinois dropped
its second game to the Aces in the Armory on Dec. 19, 44-43. It was a bad game for
the nerves all the way.
After the holiday season vacation, the Aces returned to their winning ways and
edged out the barnstorming Marshall College quint of Huntington, W. Va., in
Then later in the week, jan. 5, Evansville accomplished something it had been
trying to do since 1939. The Purple and White five defeated Western Kentucky on
the Bowling Green hardwood, 44-40.
Lopsided wins over Indiana Central, 52-33, and Central Normal, 45-28, in Evans-
ville provided the Aces with their sixth and seventh scheduled game victories in a

Riding this seven-game streak, the Crescent City hoopsters traveled to Carbondale,
Ill., for their third joust of the season with Southern Illinois. Cheered on by some
fifty Evansville students who made the trip en masse by chartered bus, the Aces staged
a gallant last-ditch rally but fell two points behind as thetfinal gun sounded. Southern

Their second loss to Indiana State and their fourth defeat of the season was in the
books for the collegians when the Sycamores pounded out a 59-37 decision in the
Armory jan. 23.

scorers on jan. 26. The scoreboard had: Evansville 813 Georgetown 395 Harold
A chartered bus was again rolled out on Jan. 30 when the Purple Aces and a bus-
load of fans journeyed to Louisville to tackle the tough University Cards. You
guessed it, Louisville won, 76-45. Everyone on the bus had a good time, just the same.

Evansville's fast-finishing netters nosed out highly rated Eastern Kentucky in the
Armory Feb. 2, 47-44, in an overtime ding-dong battle.
Coach Ed Diddle, VVestern Kentucky coach, burst into the Armory Feb. 6 waving
his towel but went home that night wiping his brow after seeing the Aces literally
sizzle against the Hilltoppers by a 53-42 tune.
Eastern Kentucky avenged an earlier defeat at Richmond, 64-50, as did the sur-
prising Georgetown Tigers, who upset Evansville 54-51 in Kentucky territory. '
Local followers got their last glimpse of the 1945-46 combination on Feb. 14 when
the Anderson College cagers proved to be no match for Evansville and lost out, 55-36.
Two road games were still on tap, at Indiana State and Indiana Central. Max
VVoolsey paced State to its third straight victory over Evansville, 49-41, after the
Aces had battled the Terre Haute school on even terms during the first half. Indiana
Central was a pushover for Evansville College in the Aces' hardwood finale at
Indianapolis on Feb. 27. The Greyhounds weren't quite swift enough for Evansville's
race-horses and came out on the short end of a 53-43 score.
The season was now over and the balls and equipment were being put back in the

One of the youngest organizations on the Evansville College
campus but one of the largest is the Bowling league.
Organized in 1945 by James G. Johnson, director of public
relations, the league operated for its second season this year.
But despite its short existence, the loop has proved popular
with many Evansville students. Twelve teanis composed the
league, which was divided into halves.

"Thirty days hath September -"
- And we had to ruin two thirds of the month by coming
back to school on the l0th. But the old school was changing -
there were men all over the place, the Home Ec department
was re-established under Miss Leberman, there were men,
Miss Heppel was taking us around campus to collect leaves,
there were men - why continue? The frosh practically out-
numbered the rest of us "old timers" fsophs, tool. They
managed to wade through the myriad forms on registration
day, to survive all the hospitality thrust upon them, and to
elect temporary officers. The' first all-campus party was a
carnival affair, with ex-playground directors drafted to operate
the concessions - and what a line Danny was handing out at
the fortune-teller's booth. Gamma Deltas elected Witt, Golden,
and Ramsey. The Dean's List was announced. The annual visit
to Profs' homes, a feature of the Y.W.-Big-Little Sister party,
was rained out, but the gals survived nobly as Koch tried out
her kindergarten games on the poor frosh land "Danny"j. The
Vets organized - but they told me I'd have to be a veteran of
the battle of Caen, not the battle of compulsory chapels. Speak-
ing of which, the sophs slept through assemblies in the balcony,
familiarly called the "roost." Twenty-two men reported for
first basketball practice. Yep, things were looking up! Dot
Hebbeler was named LinC editor Cshe twisted my arm 'til I
added thatj, and Dunbar reached the amazing conclusion that
the guy in Pasadena was wrong, because the world didn't come
to an end. Told you we should have studied for that exam
October followed September Cwell, what do you expect for
5535 and Bettye Steinback was elected S.G.A. treasurer to re-
place Jack Barnett,.who left E.C. Sororities held their fall rush
parties - Sigs started off with a potluck at Steinie's, Thetas
held a dessert bridge at the home of Evelyn Pease, and Castys
entertained at Norma Dunning's. There was talk of freshman
hazing - with which all sophs were in sympathy - but they
continued to live comfortably, suffering only from drop quizzes,
exams, and Dan Mitchell's columns in the Crescent fpd.
adv'tl. Philos edged out the Phi Zetas, 21-20, in the annual
football rivalry. Twelve teams were scheduled to compete in
the bowling league. E.C. studes went to ICSA at Turkey
Run, and the school was enriched with numerous tales of the
experiences of at least one carload and its driverfsj. Frosh
elected Stubbs, Lemcke, Flittner, and McDaniels. Sophs chose
Schrodt, Byrd, Pirtle, and Ritter. Th'e faculty recepted at
Hale's. Eleven upperclassmen were named to "Who's Who."
And didn't the choir sound fand lookl swell in chapel? 'Tis
rumored some of the sophs actually stayed awake. Then, to end
the month on a high note, an all-campus Halloween party in
the gym. And we hoped to have time to get a little much needed
sleep fthat's a joke, sonlj.
Just to get off to a good start, Miss Heppel and Mary jane
Schmitt were elected to Phi Beta Chi, and Bill Elmendorf was
named its president. August Stork headed'Kappa Chi, and John
Masters was prexy of the Vets' Club. Juniors elected Simmons,
Seiler, Hochmeister, and New. And the dignified seniors fnot
to be outdonej chose Koch, V. Koehler, Hurt, and Elmendorf.
And they try to tell us election time at E.C. is in the spring!
Overshadowing all else, ground was finally broken for the
Engineering and Science building - and our studes look good
on a plow! Carole Miller, Lois Huck, and Joe Fulford joined
Hazel Overfield to lead yells. Then the big old pregame bon-
fire, and the Aces beat Breckinridge and George Field in suc-
cession. And oh! how the student directory grew this year!
Wow! The Honor Roll was placed outside the Business Office.
Annual sorority-Gamma Delta parties began, Sigs and 'Deltas
went to St. Paul's Parish Hall as story book characters. More
Vets all the time! And thirty people cancelled "Crescent" sub-
scriptions when Helen Smith, Simpson, Edwards, and Hyland
wrote Off'n On.
Looking forward to that long-awaited Christmas vacation,
we struggled into December. And the Aces lost a fast one to
Louisville U., Sl-42. The Theta-Gamma Delta party had a
Scotch atmosphere fmeaning the country, natchll. The E. C.
Development program was slated to be the County's World
War II memorial. Carole Joy Miller was chosen Phi Zeta
Sweetheart. Vets sold toys for the D.A.V. - and Bischmann
enjoyed the hobby horses she bought. Castys and 'Deltas cele-
brated "the Night before Christmas" with Carolyn Ford as
Santa. Night classes continued in spite of electric power failure.
Castys won the W.A.A. volleyball tourney. The Aces slipped
by Sv.l.N., 44-43, and routed Anderson, 86-19, and Central
Normal, 62-45. Then on the 16th, the Thespians presented
Eager Heart, which increases in beauty with the years. The
choir did another grand job in the Christmas assembly, Santa
Claus presented candy bars to the entire school, and at four
o'clock on the 21st several naive characters were trampled to
death as we all made a rush for the door and freedom! We
were off fo.k., so you were 'way ahead of us!! for the Christ-
mas vacation - and a merry one to you!
Back on the second to the same old grind, and glories of the
vacation didn't help grim realities - such as approaching
finals. Thespians proved the "show must go on" when they
presented "The New Lady Bantockf' The Aces romped over
Indiana Central, 52-33. The rains came, but finals weren't
washed out. We never have any luck, so we had to drag through
a week of torture, with the help of Y.W.C.A. tea. At least
there were no chapels. But the poor sophs didn't get any more
sleep up in the balcony - they just didn't get any sleep, period.
And in what ambulance did you leave, following that last final,
son? . . . just to show us we're all entitled to a second chance,
registration came again. All those men! l Wonderful, but con-
fusin'! And "Sharpie" Kishline was crowned basketball queen
at the annual Gamma Delta dance. The debate squad lost to
Georgetown, but the Aces salvaged our honor by defeating
their basketballers, 81-39. Geraldo Dannemann won the Jaycee
Americanism contest. And congratulations were in order as
Ginny Stocking became Mrs. Wm. W. Simmons, Carolyn
Ford married her major, and Lucille Miller and Cale Engle-
bright tied the knot. Sophomores came down to the main floor
for chapels and the faculty sat on the stage - an inspired idea!
Oh yeah, in case you hadn't noticed, there was a decided
numerical superiority of men over women on campus - dif-
ferent, but swell! And all of us were griping about our LinC
And weren't the pep assemblies super! Rumors proved cor-
rect as Don Ping was named EC. football coach in the athletic
revival. First semester grades came out, and half the school
went into mourning while the other half tried to buy ammu-
nition for its .45's. And as February rolled on all thoughts
Cboth of oursj turned to rush week. The Thetas led off with
a formal dinner in the Empire room, followed by the Castalians
and Sigs in the same location. The Philos had a big old time at
the T-Hut, and the Phi Zetas trekked to the Y.M. for their
usual good time. Then pledging, hand-shaking, and back-
slapping all around, followed by an exposure of the true nature
of fiendish actives. Higher education took a beating while black
bloomers, burlap, and onions plus Blue Waltz reigned supreme.
And they all lived happily ever after!
The month rolled into high gear with banquets all over -
the usual pledge dinners. More vets enrolled. Forty-six men
were out for initial football practice and it seemed we would
have a great team! Martha Dunbar and Prof. Straw were
elected to Phi Beta Chi. Mary D. Hayes headed the Pre-Meds.
A Pre-Law group organized, headed by Ronald Shively. Classes
met to elect sponsors. Harry Lieberman made Tau Kappa
Alpha. Then midterms, followed by aspirin and more vets.
And the month ended on the same note on which it had begun
- the huge banquet honoring a great basketball team, a
marvelous coach, and a swell season's record of 16 wins, 8 de-
Yep, it's April, fool Cif you've read this far, you need to be
insulted!l But this weather has us - must be spring fever.
Wonder what we should call it the other three seasons -
loahng? And as we went into the month, the big project at EC.
was the W.S.S.F. drive. After which we killed time until the
Easter vacation. Coming back, we began to realize. there was
so little time left. Baseball returned to E.C., a couple of prac-
tice football games were on the schedule, and the old school was
buzzin' what with plans for annual spring formals and other
events. But We managed to survive, and on into the month of-
And the poor old seniors sobbed into whatever seniors sob in
as they realized they were coming into the home stretch.
Question: did they weep for sentiment's sake or for fear they
wouldn't get those sheepskins? The Y.W. girls were hostesses
for the annuali May Day breakfast. Classes held social events.
Spring formals occurred at least once a week! Elections came
down upon E.C. with the old political fervor blossoming out
anew. Then we swept away the debris and realized finals were
not too far distant! Came the traditional campus notables as-
sembly, crowning of the May Queen, W.A.A.-Faculty baseball
fracas, and other May Day festivities, Senior class day with the
reading of the class will, and attendant ceremonies. And they,
lucky dogs, were out, leaving us to slave our heads to the bone
on exams. And if you think it's easy to write about April and
May in mid-March, try it sometime. You, too, will be eligible
for entrance into Evansville Graduate School fbetter known as
Woodmerej. The long-awaited day arrived for the seniors, and
since we can't resist we give to those departing members of our
group these sage words of advice: always keep your chin upg
it makes it so much easier for someone to slit your throat! For
them this is the end of one era, and the opening of far greater
vistas. May the memories of the past be ever with them as they
venture forth to "face the future, unafraid."
Anyone know where I can buy some protection?

"Now, thank goodness, We can switch to a silent Servelf'
says Q41 famous star of screen and radio
.loan Bennet! has been looking forward, like a
lot of other folks, to the day when she could replace
her noisy old refrigerator with a new one. "It's
here," she says, "and this time our family is get-
ting a Servel Gas Refrigerator! Friends who've
K X -g'.f mfg: '

had their Servels for years never have any noise.
And no hig repair hills. That's the kind of refrig-
erator I want." If that's the kind of refrigerator
you want, too, maybe you'd better look into Servel
today. Because . . . it stays silent, lasts longer.
Soo the new models today-at your Gas Com-
pany. You'll be-amazed how roomy they are, how
they'll save you hours of shopping time. Look, too,
at the ingenious way they're arranged inside.
There's just-right temperatures for meats . . .
for vegetables . . . for froven foods. And remember
-like the more than two million Servels that
fortunate families are enjoying right now, your
new Servel will give you also exclusive operating
advantages. Permanent silence. Longer service.
You can't hear a fhlngl That's because a tiny
gas flame does the work in Servel. It circulates
the refrigerant that produces cold and ice.
There'a not a single moving part in the freezing
system to cause noise, wear or need fixing.
For Farm and Country homes, there are models
that run on Bottled Gas--Tank Gas-Kerosene.
