THIS IS WHY - - . SO WHAT?
For a group Whom We know and recognize as edu-
cated, We have prepared a very unique edition of
the Argus. Therefore an insight into the theories
back of it will be helpful at the outset. The ideal
yearbook is that one which is most prolific of mem-
ories from the real life which it portrays. ln addition,
it must give a pleasing, authoritative picture to the
college patron and the prospective student. lf the
original enjoyment of it is too quickly exhausted,
and it does not invite repeated exploration or chal-
lenge the reader's ingenuity, it cannot be perfect.
Moreover, it must be natural, not grandiose and for-
mal. Others may judge in this light what We've done.

WELL, HERE'S WHAT . . . WHY NOT?
A rather exotic theme lends the necessary continuity to this
work, which We present as the product of an ideal. lt is an
international language motif, which begins with the hand-
painted view of the Tower of Babel, symbolizing the original
division of languages. We follow with the story, season by
season, of this year as We have lived it. Among the pictor-
ial sidelights of the campus and the more or less meaningful
Words, We have strewed bits of wisdom in the strange guise
of foreign tongues. The book ends with an artist's panorama
of views typical oi alien lands, as emblems of the present
clarity of idioms. The modern page style constantly reminds
us of the depth beneath the informal surface, and the unity
of tone is an aesthetic implication of universal human traits.

We're off! The blessed event, the upstart of our genius, is
launched into the cruel world! Mere conformity to tradition
would have us lay aside our scruples regarding sincerity and
to subtly "curry favor" from some influential person by laud-
ing that worthy for inspiration and assistance. This, however,
being hard on the honorary's conscience, we have chosen
not to let our tribute be clothed in the usual tissues of fiction
and artificial formality. We risk criticism for lack of altruism,
excommunication from higher society, or even literal cruci-
fixiont on charges of cockiness at the hands of those whom we
have sought so ardently and humbly to serve. But, following
our motto: "Bons mots n'epargnent nuls.", we gladly accede,
as it leaves us, to the last request this little volume will ever
make. We cannot but be modestly grateful as we hear our
literary child solemnly utter, of its own free will and straight
from its true blue heart: "All that l am and ever hope to be,
l owe to my dartlling makers."

F FD LEP VES
September is here! The harvest of
Nature is ending, and hungry
minds begin to glean those noble
fields, Whose fruit is truth. More
vigorous bodies follow the pigskin,
and stadia ring with the cheers of
collegians. Faculty on parade,
freshmen on probation-college is
on! This, We tell ourselves, will be
a "big year". Significantly, how-
ever, ambitions shrivel under the
heat of the midnight oil even be-
fore the dying of the leaves. But
fall and the freshness of summer-
given vitality were glorious-until
the grades came. Leaf, and live
them all anew.

POWERS Ti-If' BE
A beautiful home, a smooth Reo, chummy games oi ping-pong or baseball
Cdart varietyl, speeches at clubs in town, leisure study of Russia, touring east
and west: the life of "Prexy". Mrs. Dunathan is a charming wife and hostessy
one talented daughter and two sons, one in adorable babyhood, another liv-
ing daily a short story of adventure, are campus personalities. But this is not
the whole picture: since a certain school superintendent came in 1929 to the
vacant headship ot the college, three accreditings and a battle royal with
the big, bad wolf have been won. Perhaps there's some connection between
them and the graying of our president's hair. This is also part of the picture.
Remember, too, a thousands chapels, and those matter-oi-money interviews in
each oi our private lives when an accrediting was made- to the debits of
Dad's account iii anyb. But look at Mr. D. at home-sometimes he rests.

These people, though separated during the Whole
year, are ever behind the scenes, in touch With the
problem of current financing. Each Iune, when We
all are busy enduring exams, they assemble as a
unit to direct the major policies of the college. The
increasing need for economy has made their dili-
gence our gain, and our gratitude is theirs. The
Board of Trustees is indeed a vital organ ot a Well
established and rising school.

PROP. JAMES L. DEMING
So here shall silence guard thy fame:
But somewhere, out of human view,
Whate'er thy hands are set to do
Is Wrought with turnult of acclaim.
In memory of our senior professor, the head of
the English department, who died Oct. 13, 1934.

So this is the result! Years of study, abysses of
debt, the jeopardy of health, all in the production
of self-rnade persons with university trade-marks,
who playfully style themselves "the narrowest
class of persons in society". Well, at least one
finds that ignorance is bliss-when one is no
longer unlearned. We're proud of our academic
dignitaries. But we regret that Miss Dreitzler,
Messrs. Perkins, Morey, Sanderson, I-lutson and
Don Magoon are not included in this picture.
RAYMOND M. GONSO. Dean of Men. Philosophy: "Co-
gito, ergo sum."-Descartes. A student employment bur-
eau, and a recreation hall downstairs evidence a whole-
some, genial influence at Work. Professor Gonso has the
problems of rnan at heart.
HOMER R. DUNATHAN, President: "La tete qui porte une
couronne reste mal coucheef'-Racine. Our leader and our
progress have become inseparable in our thinking. We
realize that Findlay College has not lacked a mainstay in
her time of need.
ROY I. WERTHEIM, Romance Languages: "Quid aeternis
minorem consiliis animum tatigas?"-Horace. A student
purely for the love of study, and a teacher with a class
technique that is truly rare, Professor Wertheim is usually
seen at his desk.
ROBERT A. HONN, Psychology: "Ein Wenig zu spat ist viel
zu spat."-Pr. Dr. Honn will always be associated with
orderly living. He assumes a talking interest in opposing
any negligence of the campus, and stirs school spirit
WILLIAM A. BAIR, Education: "Tu pol si sapis, quid scis
nescis."-Terence. Hobbyist of bird nature and Ohio his-
tory, capable mentor and distributor of would-be educators,
Whose method of handling lectures has become
a fond tradition.
I. RUSSELL BUCHER, Theology: "Toute personne qui fait de
la religion son second but ne fait d'elle aucun but."-Bos-
suet. A very conscientious devotee of Winebrenner, Well
versed in theology and Greek, who annually obtains
cr real Florida tan.
C. C. HAMILTON. Literature: "Worte sind der Seele Bild."-
Goethe. A lover of words and the study of words, Dr. Ham-
ilton has presented literature in a new fashion. One year
has served to reveal in him a man of literary ideas.
HOWARD C. PERKINS, Political Science: "Kis sokat rnar-
lok, keveset szoritf'-Arany. Dr. Heiges' successor has a
bent for travel, but has settled in Findlay tor a while, put-
ting "Big college" tone into debate and the new
"Poly Sci" club.
NEIL CRAFTES, English: "Ie n'ai jamais connu un hornrne
de lettres qui avait honte de sa profession."-de Vigny.
Under handicap of time, Professor Craites began his Work
unostentatiously and enriched it with a wealth oi
BERNITA DREITZLER. ' Dean of Women, Literature: "La
poesie est la pensee en vers meiriquef'-Huqo. Miss
Dreitzler, the co-ed's friend, teaches with a nicety of pre-
cision. As a matter of fact, only dictates of form took her to
Ohio State this year.
WENDELL SANDERSON. Voice: "Die Wahre Musik Werde
zum Ohren allein beabsichtigt, wer sinqt es mir rnusz un-
sichtbar sein."-Goethe. Professor Sanderson is a creator
and interpreter of music par excellence, and moreover,
a commanding personality.
IAMES R. MOCK. History: "A proprement parler, il n'y a
d'l'1istoire, il n'y a que de la biographie."-Froissart. De-
voutly and consurnrnately a student, Dr. Mock gives to
history meaningful application and power. His classes
solve student unemployment.
YALE K. ROOTS, Physics: "Die lrrthurner des Menschen
machen ihn eigentlich liebenswurdigf'-Goethe. A passion
for physics, a tolerance of mathematics, royal generosity in
assignments. Boston U. awarded Dr. Roots a Ph.D. in 1934.
CARROLL A. MOREY. Dean, Chemistry: "L'opinion, que
les hommes ont a 1'egard des femmes est l'epreuve de la
civilization."-Rocheioucauld. Dean Morey, though bur-
dened by administrative duties, is consistently
genial and courteous.
WILLIAM C. LEVAN. Biological' Sciences: "Ein Mann von
Geburt sei bestehend, sondern bestandigf' - Gottsched.
Dr. LeVan trains "pre-meds" and teachers, makes each
class a laboratory in mental hygiene, and, incidentally,
STUART K. HOLCOMB, Head Coach: "Kein schoner Ding
ist Wohl auf Erden als Frauerilieb, Wern sie mag werden."-G
Luther. Stu has not been content merely to lead his boys in
physical drill, but by an exemplary character as well.
BETTY DAVIS. Gir1's Physical Instructor: "Strenua nos ex-
ercet inertia."-Horace. The girls, We fear, have kept a
lively pace, but the new coach has lost no prestige or pop-
ularity by setting it, and improving this hitherto
EDWARD WEAVER, Assistant Coach: "Proteger les
eleves cle 1'erreur n'est pas le rnetier de l'instructeLu', mais
guicler les eleves qui se trompentf' Montaigne. One year
has led us to expect big things from this big man as
E. E. MAGOON, Director of Commercial Courses: "La hate
deraisonnable est la route droite a l'erreur."-Moliere.
Known to the business school as the master of his field,
Professor Magoon assumes a wider role as the originator of
GLEN MCCLELLAND, Commercial Instructor: "Das Ge-
heimnisz Unterrichts liegt in der Achtung fur die Schuler."
-Iung. This is Mr. McCle1land's first year with us, and he
is Well liked, possibly because he is not at all dogmatic
DONALD MAGOON, Commercial Instructor: "La pesante
tete de ble pend toujours le plus bas."-Pr. Don is another
of the seven new instructors who were installed this year.
He is inclined to be rather reserved and, to some

MYRTLE DEMING. Registrar: "Diligentia, qua una virtute
ornnes virtutes reliquae continenturf'---Cicero. Always busy
but never lacking cheerfulness, characterizes Miss Deming,
but the respect of the school speaks yet more
eloquently for her.
XX ' X! THERINE ELL Librarian: "Les gens les plus intelli-
X f . soin cle grandes bibliothetiques."-
N ' - e. Though firm to silence the library chatter, Miss Ellis
lives in her booth by the side of the aisle,
i and is a friend to rnan.
MABEL KING, Office Secretary: "L'arbre de la science n'est
pas l'arbre de la vie."-Fenelon. First in the office and last
to leave, Miss King has uniformly maintained for over five
years a standard of workmanship which challenges
OLIVER SCHUMACHER. Orchestra: "Der Unterricht der
Kunst ist der Unterricht Alles."-Ruskin. Assembling and
perfecting an orchestra each year is but a part of Professor
Schurnachefs work, for his special violin training also
finds use in Findlay.
DALE HUTSON. Organ: "Wenn die Musik nicht erhebt und
reinigt, ist sie Wirklich nicht die Musik."-Bach. Findlay
College Otters organ instruction of high calibre. This year
Mr. Hutson, skilled organist oi the city, was selected
ANNAMARY DEVERTER, Director of Conservatory: "Los
hornbres que pueden oir realmente, oyen la musice en
todas partesf'-Calderon. With untailing diligence Miss
Deverter presents her pupils in their recitals, but does not
neglect her own practice.

PULL-MANS, NOT SLEEPERS
"La montagne est passee, nous irons mieuX."-
Frederick the Great. The athletic department has
continued its rapid improvement this year. lt
added to its staff Ed Weaver, of Kenton and State,
as line coach, and Miss Betty Davis as girls' ath-
letic director. Extensive and Well planned intra-
mural programs have been launched, with the
idea ot "Athletics tor students, not students for
athletics." In Iune the first year ot probation in the
Ohio conference will have been successfully
passed. Fall will see Findlay College a member
in good standing. Conference competition will be-
gin against tour of the strongest teams enrolled,
Mt. Union, Akron, Iohn Carroll, and Baldwin

FIGHT, TEAM, FIGHT TEAM.
This season was one in which all our teams were
handicapped by lack of reserves. Neither Seniors
nor Freshmen were available. Added to this dis-
advantage was the natural one of Findlay's corn-
paratively small enrollment. However, Findlay is
proving her worthiness oi the competition she en-
joys with the larger conference schools. Without
hesitation-even joytully-she has abandoned
the Iberian village. Perforce she will succeed in
Rome. Credit for enlisting student spirit and sup-
port to encourage this undertaking goes to F eni-
more, who organized the band, and along with
the associates pictured below, led the parades or
pep meetings at the boniires and the games.

WITH THESE THE COACHES
Findlay helped the Denisonians dedicate their
new stadium lights in the opening game. Find-
lay fumbles and field goals characterized the
first half. By taking to the air in the later division
Findlay held the score to l9-l3. G G G At Xavier
the next week Findlay surprised their oppo-
nents by a field goal in the first quarter. They
recovered admirably and proceeded to pile up
30 points G of of ln the game with Detroit Tech on
Cot. 20, the Orange sustained its record "un-
beaten on the home field since l93l." The offen-
sive strength of the team was displayed with a
succession of eight touchdowns. Coach Hol-
comb used every man in uniform. 6: 5: G ln spite
of the cold, windy, rainy weather on "Dad's
Day", a parade of students with band and
police escort proceeded to "show this town it's
a college town". Findlay managed two touch-
downs to Ferris' one.

played better football than in this game, but it
was handicapped by the apparent loss oi the

Unpotted Green Perennials
"La violence est juste ou la douceur est vaine."-
Corneille. Though small as Freshman enrollments
go, the Class of 1938 makes up a third of the Arts
department. A reflection of the times may be ob-
served in the unusual majority of natives of Findlay.
Unfortunately the lower classmen were at a disad-
vantage this year, because so many doors were
closed to them by the conference regulations.
A crackingtgood time.,was had by all, however,
when the Sophomore men, outnumbered 44 to 20,
and handicapped by external humanitarian influ-
ences, conceived an energy-saving, cafeteria sort
of initiation. The valor of the Sophomore class is
never to be questioned, but "wisdom is the better
part of valor". Meantime, the girls were given the
time-tested flour dressing land some ribbonsl for
their hair, and a pair of orange and black hose, the
mass movement to the courthouse and the l-larris.
The youngsters split honors with their doubtful su-
periors inthe sack rush and the tug-of-war, and then
daintily declined to even attempt to disturb the flut-
tering pennant. Some skilful grease daubing
aroused them, though, and no one will soon forget
how CLittle lohnb Yohe rose to the heights and threw
dirty lubricant on faces below.
One deplorable loss was sustained this year' when
the unbroken tradition of "potting" the tender High
School sprouts was allowed to die, without even
burial rites. Alas, how the color has gone from the

From football and our first Contact with

into days when the bite of the frost
slowly congeals the current of our out-

prison of the indoors. Clubs, basketball
games and lectures make up our merry
round of pastimes. When the gridiron
has frozen and the rustling brown of
fall has given Way to sifting White, the
frigid keenness of howling Wind or the

PHILOSOPHY BEARDED IN ITS DEN
"Wer kann das Dummes, wer das Kluges denken, das
nicht die Vorwelt schon gedacht?"-Goethe. The aim of
the Alethean club is to bring together campus leaders in
the various academic fields. Frank discussions of varied
import are conducted on a liberal basis, and, to develop
the necessary cultural background, dinner meetings are
held several times a year With the annual formal banquet
in May as a climax. The officers, Richard Beard, Allen
Clopper, Ellen Hybarger, and the committee chairmen,
Kathryn Gaver, Sheldon Taylor, and Max Eimas, cooper-
ating with Professor Gonso, directed Alethean
activity for l934-35.

since last Iune, but the remnant, in a serious Way,
has given a good account of itself. Application to
constructive and more or less conservative en-

lt is interesting to note how small the number of
girls in this group, but those girls have been most
dependable in collegiate activities.
The Class of 1937 does not lose by a comparison of
its official contributions with those of other classes.
Seven vice presidents, l-loose, Wright, Blackburn,

three varsity debaters, Bellinger, Gates and Small,
constitute no mean gift to the life of the school.

THREE SHEETSIN THE WIND
Three years are gone! Now We begin to look back
on prophecies. As early as the spring of l933 this re-
markable aggregation Was marked for big things
by those who have seen classes come and go,
though it was dubbed "the meekest lambs that ever
gambolled on the campus" by the untamed Class
Let's see how the prophecies came true. This year
seven clubs chose Beach, Caskey, Bushong, I-loose,
Armbrecht, Bodabaugh, Kurtz and Beard for their
presidents. Hence the meek lambs were virtually
the ruling class. But more specialized honors came
to this ambitious bunch, for Blackburn, Cofini, and
Calabrese captained the major sports, While Beach,
Gaver, Street, Beard and Wallen were chosen to
represent the school at Oberlin's Anti-War Confer-
ence, and Gaver, Beach and Clopper took three of
the four all-A ratings for the first half. Besides, all
but three of the Argus staff positions were held by
Iuniors, along with eight of the sixteen Student

Findlay College enrolled in 1932 a free-thinking,
frank variety of personalities, a class with almost
freakish originality. This, the official Iunior publica-

kept the kind of morale that makes such a sport worth-

now we close our resume with two characters
less well known. Pugh is known best on the
coaching staff, but is frequently seen in long
conferences in the History room. lohn Russell is
a comparative newcomer, and his varied activi-
ties limit his college routine.
Again the moment has arrived when a parting
is necessary. College friendships, once broken,
are seldom reunited. Our wish, therefore, as
subgraduates, is that our loss by your depart-
ure may be the harbinger of your successful
use of whatever you may have gained here
"Deux tetes valent mieux qrfune, ou bien pour-
quoi se rnarie-t-on?"-Proverb. Bill comes to
Findlay College from the Colorado school oi
Mines, bringing with him the conference box-
ing title. Although he has held this honor for
two years, few FC. students knew oi his mod-
est prowess. Andrews has worked hard at foot-
ball, and has been holding, during his two
years here, the distinctive place among all our
chapel speakers and entertainers, of being the
only chalk talker.
"Die Tugend ist vielleicht streng, aber sie ist
nie unbarrnherzig, nie un1'ner1schlich."-Schil-
ler. Leslie's help has been volunteered in every'
good cause. The Ministerial cmd Y. M. claimed
and depended on him longest, while in a lesser
way he devoted hirnself to the Alethean, His-
tory, and Student Volunteer groups. He held
several major offices, including treasurerships
oii1he'fMinisterial and Iunior 'class,-.a-2-year
debate ranking, and Argus associate editorship.
"Qu' heureux est le mortel, qui, du monde ig-
nore, vit content de Soi-meme en un coin retire!"
-Boileau. Ray, displaying an independent, re-
served nature, has gained popularity without
seeking it. During the first year, he proved a
good member of the Peranian Literary Society
and evidenced interest and ability in varsity
baseball. Later he was chosen a member of the
Alpha aggregation, and, like every good boy,
he at one time belonged to the collegiate
"Was kann nicht missqebraucht sein, ist keinen
Schuss Pulver Wert."-Niebuhr. That Charley
has been outstanding in athletics needs no
other proof than the memory of the students.
He came to Findlay College from Miami Uni-
versity, Where he had taken up football and
track, and furthered the former interest in such
a Way here as to make himself a lasting place
among the impressions left to the Alma Mater
by the memorable Class of Thirty-Five.
"Aucune bataille ne pouvait pas effacer le
sourir de son visaqef'--de Musset. Popularity
has placed "Blocky" at the head of numerous
groups in the college. He has reigned success-
fully over the Seniors, Student Council and
Varsity Last Clean-up Day Block was
"boss" of all the campus workers. In the Alpha
club and Aristotelian, too, he was prominent.
But We have not even touched the field of his
major triumph: he is, by ballot, our Best Athlete.
"Ubi verba rara sunt, ibi rare frustra expen-
santur."-Voltaire. Dot has been a conserva-
tive little Miss whose pursuits have varied.
Holding the position of Conference Chairman of
the Y.W. cabinet, she has been very successful
in planning May Days and Waffle Suppers. As
a member of Peppers, Aristotelian, and Chorus,
Dorothy gave willingly oi her talents. During
her first two years she played Varsity tennis,
and in the second worked on the Argus staff.
"Cura non medicamen, sed res corrosiva est."
-Virgil. The possessor of a carefree, vigorous
personality, we expected to find Caldwell allied
with Rambling Peppers, Tennis team, and
W.A.A. French club and Cap and Dagger ap-
pealed io Ruth when she launched into other
fields. .A soprano solo talent distinguished her
in chorus Work, and in Student Council as Well
as in Y.W.C.A. was evidenced an amusing
talkativeness which seemed to make her daily
"I sapienter et lenteg cadunt qui curruni."-
Virgil. Cole has been keenly engrossed in the
intramural sports, and has not missed his op-
portunities along that line. During the Winter he
has been on the courts of basketball and volley,
and with the coming of spring his thoughts
came back to baseball and the center field of
the varsity line-up. Athletics, however, did not
interfere with his curriculum or his part as C1
member of the Einstein and Psychology clubs.
"Ahl pour etre devot, je n'en suis pas moins
hommef'-Moliere. Dunny was vice president
of the Seniors, and presided the Ministerial dur-
ing his Iunior and Senior years. For an even
longer time he was a key man in the baseball
line-up, pitching for the Varsity. His early in-
terests in Peranian, A Capella choir, and
Chapel Orchestra changed in the last two years
to the Student Council and Varsity "F", along
With the rnanagership of football for this Year.
"On appele les gens serieux, n'est-ce pas, les
gens qui ne comprennent rien de l'amour?"-
Dumas. Ierry has been very active in creating
school spirit for Findlay. He organized and
managed the school band, participated in the
orchestra, and led cheers for all the sports.
For three years Fenimore played on the varsity
tennis team, and was, of course, a member of
the Varsity "F He joined the "Y", and, in his
own field of study, led and promoted
MARY ALICE FOSTER
"Elle cr trop de vertus pour n'etre pcrs chreti-
enne."-Corneille. Serving as CI cabinet mem-
ber Cmd lcrter as president of Y.W.C.A., Mcxry
Alice Worked faithfully to keep the organiza-
tion cxqlow. Her winning personality found op-
portunity to shine in such clubs ons Peromion,
Bio-Chem, Alethecm, Forensic, W.A.A., cmd Stu-
dent Council. In spite of the fact that her activ-
ities took much time, we present her elsewhere
cms the school's choice for "Best Student".
"Via trita est tutissimaf'-Cato. lean became a
familiar figure to those who study in the after-
lnoons as the brown-eyed coed who searched
the stacks for some reference book which was
in demand. Entering into one branch of music,
she joined the A Capella choir for two presen-
tations, "The Messiah" and "The Rose Maiden".
During her freshman year she was vice presi-
dent of her class, a member of the Aristotelian
Literary Society and a "peppy"
one of the Peppers.
"L'habit ne fait point le moinef'-Pascal. De-
termined to get the most out oi tour college
years, Guess entered such activities as Ramb-
ling Peppers, Ministerial, Aristot, and the Col-
lege Band. Athletic life soon beckoned, how-
ever, and tennis, track, and basketball became
accomplishments. His tenor was welcomed in
"The Messiah" and "The Rose Maiden". In his
spare time, among other things, he was vice-
president of the Sophomores and Varsity
"Arbor silentii tructurn pacis fert."-Proverb.
Helen's chief interest throughout her college
days has been athletics. As a result we are
not surprised to find her in tennis and intra-
mural basketball, nor as president of the newly
organized W.A.A. during her Senior year. Coin-
cident with this interest was one in music which
took the form of A Capella choir. In addition,
Helen's inclinations favored the Bio-Chem club
and the Aristotelian Literary Society,
LAURA ELLEN HAGGERT
"Chi porta agli altri la chiarezza del sole non
puo irnpedirela da se."-Vega. "Strong for
athletics" has characterized Laura Ellen's
career in Findlay College. For two years she
was a member of both the basketball and tennis
teams. Her literary interests were expressed
by her participation in Aristotelian Literary
Society, While her musical talents were dis-
played in A Capella choir. She was interested
also in the program of the new Biology club.
"Vestis hominern Inonstrantf' - D'Annunzio.
IThe Harvest Home kitcheners Will not soon for-
get this capable carver of chickens. However,
one should not fail to mention various other
abilities. Like a true Aristotelian, he became
winner of the Short Story contest in '32, Then
Einstein offered him an outlet for' hisiinterest in
science. In music Clayton gained distinction
mainly by piano ensemble work. He attended
the University of Maryland during last surnrner.
"Die Hindus des Wuste geloben kein Fisch z
essen."-Goethe. In '32 Leia was quite active
in the Peranian Literary organization. Becaus
of a truly sincere interest in Missionary Wor
the Student Volunteer group and the Minister
ial Association were alluring to her. She is the
only Senior girl who has been a cabinet mem-
ber of Y.W.C.A. for four successive years, and
many will remember that Lela accomplished
some things as first president of Psychology
club, in 1935.
H E L E N H O Y
"Dans cette musique de 1'arnour une blonde
vaut deux noires."-Dumas. Poise and charm
alone make distinction, but in this case an ac-
tivity record also deserves attention. Of her
three years of Y.W. work we should remember
her part in the planning of last May Day. The
Rambling Peppers and Aristotelian Literary So-
ciety took a part of her time land some hospi-
talityl but varsity tennis and Argus staff Work
seemed more important, especially during her
"Qualunque crede cha la volonte libra, no ha
mas amato, no ha mas detestatof'-Calderon.
ln addition to attaining a high scholastic rank-
ing, Ellen was connected with Rambling Pep-
pers and served Y.W.C.A. tor two years,
chiefly as social chairwoman. Being interested
in drama and philosophy, she played in
"TWeedles" for the Cap and Dagger, and acted
as secretary of Alethean. In yet other cultural
lines she frequently appeared, notably in
Chorus and the conservatory recitals.
"Non est vigor qui viqorem antecedit."-Niet-
sche. "The Real Thing" and "Pals First" show
us that Kohr's dramatic achievements have not
been limited to Henderson Home. Steadily
climbing the athletic ladder, he stepped suc-
cessively into varsity football, baseball, and
a position as Freshman line coach. In '33 and
'34 "Syv" sang in the bass section of chorus.
Aristotelian and the Student Council also found
in him a consistent force and dependability
A of character.
"Aevo rarissima nostro simplicitasf'-Tacitus.
Gladys, in her quiet way, has been one of the
most popular of the Coeds. Something of her
nature can be witnessed in the tact that she
held prominent offices in such organizations
as Peranian, Biology Club, Sophomore class,
and Y.W.C.A. Her varied accomplishments in
Cap and Dagger club, A Capella choir, W.A.A.,
and Alethean paved the Way in large part for
the crowning success of her college career, the
honor of being Queen of the May, l935.
"En que luqar hay 1a rnusica, no hay verda-
deramente niuquna cosa de 1naldad."-Cer-
vantes. Eugene has been a conservative leader
of Y.M., qiving his services to this organization
both as president and treasurer. Endurance and
his steadiness enabled him to participate in
cross country track events, football and basket-
ball. One of his outstanding personal accom-
plishments has been the organization of "The
Harmony Four" which has entertained in
chapel and via radio.
HEQGU Arne er Guld vaerd."-Danish Pr. As a
Freshman lim was president of his class and,
by popular vote, the' most outstanding member
of it. In virtue of his office, he became a mem-
ber of the Student Council that year, also. Al-
though his chief excellence has been in the
puqilistic ring, Perry was out for iootball and
baseball for two years. He once belonqed to
the Aristot, and this year was elected to be
the first president of the "Poly Sci" club.
"La facultad de quardar silencio manifesta la
fuerzaf'-Pedro. Ruth's versatile activity is only
indicated by mentioning her in connection with
the Alethean, W.A.A., and Cap and Daqqer
clubs. She has been secretary to both Peranian
and Einstein organizations, vice president of
Y.W.C.A., and a participant in the A Capella
renditions of "The Rose Maiden", "The Mes-
siah", and "Ruth", Our Ruth also played in
"The Open Road", and was on the staff of
The Argus, l933.
"Gli nornini di scienza lasciano la controversia
alla bassa gente sotio di se."-Proverb. Find-
lay College gained a boy of real character
when Dick Petty transferred from Mt. Morris,
Illinois. He has since busiecl hirnseli as a pre-
medical student, taking interest in the Biology
and Psychology clubs, and to some extent in
Y.M.C.A. Without disparaging any Henderson-
ian activities, We should say that intramural
sports competition has kept him fit.
"L'une des marques de certaines esprits est de
toujours conter."-La Bruvere. Believing in a
wide range of interests, Dick "joined up" with
several clubs. He served as Argus Business
Manager, and gave some attention to Rambling
Peppers, Varsity "F," and Chemistry Club.
Through his efforts, also, the Tau Theta Social
group was organized. Familiarly styled "the
mighty atom", Phillips showed up in track, both
with the varsity team, and cross-country events.
"Die Schule Knaben zahlen die Taqe bis auf
die Pruckkehr der Fereinf'-Lessing. Mr. Pugh
is remembered by some of us as a man in foot-
ball toqs Who appears in the fall as assistant to
Coach Holcomb. His professional iraininq has
not all been furnished by Findlay College, for
he previously spent Two years at Ohio Northern
University, and attended summer school at
Bowling Green State Colleqe. He is at present
occupied in the city as Principal of
"Non sunt divitiae quae corpus sanum antece-
dunt, et non est qaudium quid qaudiurn cordis
anteceditf'-Eccleciasticus. Having adopted
athletics as his main interest, Redding soon
proved to be one of our best track men. This
sport occupied some of his time every year. ln
addition, he scored in football, basketball and
baseball as well. Consequently he was a
member of the Varsity "F" and Alpha clubs.
Bob was also one of the members of the Aristo-
telian Literary Society.
"Chi nasce bella, nasce rnaritataf' -It. Pr.
Music and dramatics have been Dot's chief in-
terests throuqhout her college career Cmen, of
course, omittedl. She did some solo Work for A
Capella in the "Rose Maiden" and was a mem-
ber of the chorus which presented "The Mes-
siah". Dot played a part in Y.W. and in the
cast of "Mark Twain's Goodbye". Inherent
friendliness and abundant pep won the student
vote for her as the "Most Popular Co-ed" for
the year 1934.
"Was konnen Sie tun, waqen Sie nur das und
nicht mehr."-Heine. Bare Hall has been con-
siderably enlivened, Cauthorities differ herel
through Verner's efforts. He has been cr prom-
inent member of the dormitory union for the
promotion of college spirit. Since his first col-
legiate year of participation in football and the
Aristotelian Literary Society, his interest has
centered in our Social Science department, not,
however, excluding Ft. Wayne.
"Ie ne remarque point qu'il hante les eglises."-
Moliere. Captaining one varsity basketball
team and playing regularly on two others made
Watson a typical Bare Hall hero. I-le was a
member of Student Council in '32, the Alpha
club in '33, and manager for the football squad
in '34. Nor were all his conquests in the athletic
line. "The Brink of Silence", a radio play, and a
few chapel programs emphasized dramatic
qualities in him which carried over into his
"Mein Lebens Wunsch ist stiller Friede".-
Seume. Bill, a ministerial student, made his
tame by his Y. M. Work. While a member of
this organization he served as president, vice-
president, May King, and chairman of two Har-
vest Home suppers. The Cap and Dagger,
Peranian Literary, Pen Et Pencil and Debate
clubs were his diversions, until his girl came to
college. Three years oi baseball managing, by
the way, gave him recognition and member-
ship in the Varsity "F."
