Where We meet-
Wlmere we study- -
Where we pay our bills
We build our minds
We build our spirits W
g Through worship
We build our personalities i
We are all blind until we see
That in the human plan,
Nothing is worth the making, if
It doesn't make the man.
Why build those cities glorious
If man unbuilded goes?
In vain We build the work, unless
The builder also grows.

After the accident, this poem was found in the pocket of Dr.
Raffety's sweater. It was in his own handwriting, and bore
his initials in the corner. It was probably written at Idyllwild
just a few hours before he started for Redlands.
A PRAYER TU BE FAIR
V Teach us to be fair to Christ!
Help us to know His will,
Then help us His will to do-
In loving and serving others, still
To know we're serving You.
Teach us how to be fair to Christ!
Fair in thought and word and deed,
In thinking, speaking, living,
Loyal to follow His lead,
Just to be fair,
This is our prayer
To the Giver of every
Cood and perfect gift.
Through jesus Christ our Lord.

HERBERT E. MARSH
We are all under a debt of gratitude to those who bear the
burden of providing the La Letra record of this year's activi'
ties in our beloved college.
As the scroll is unrolled it will certainly show a college
year distinguished by extremes of sorrow and of joy. It be'
gins with the passing of a consecrated leader, busy at his
task, and continues in a splendid spirit of loyalty and cof
operation on the part of all and running through its activities
is a golden thread of friendliness which is at the very heart
This has made possible a year of real building for which
we are all devoutly thankful.

The Student Council is the governing body of the Associated
Students. It's membership consists of the four student body oflicf
ers, one representative from each class, and two representatives
from the Student Body at large. Nonfvoting members include the
Dean of Men, and a press representative-making a force of thirf
Plans for Student Body activities are taken up at bifmonthly
meetings, and all matters of general student body importance must
be handled by this group. Two of its accomplishments during the
past year have been the setting up of a Little Theater on the cam'
pus, and promoting a change in the registration fee, so as to en'
able every student to have a La Letra.
The Student Council has charge of the affairs of the Student
Body, yet the success of any of its activities has been due to the
splendid cooperation which it has received from the Student Body
as a whole.

"It has been reported to council that you were twenty minutes late
on the night of january 24th. Do you have anything to say about this?"
Thusly, Ethel Mzithis, President of the Dormitory Council, ad'
dresses the latest offender.
"Well, you see I forgot to look at my watch until a quarter of
eleven, and it took quite a while to get down from Arrowhead."
"Do you mean that you came down from Arrowhead in thirtyffive
minutes?" says the doubting Secretary, Ruth Murphy.
"Yes, I distinctly remember it was a quarter of eleven when I looked
at my watch."
What would you do? just what a perplexed council does every
Monday night-try to decide whether to fine her for speeding or cam'
pus her for being late. Uh! It's great fun!

Here come the Spurs-the girls who every Wednesday, rain or shine, ap'
pear in immaculate white Spur Uniforms, and carry on the Spur motto,
"At Your Service". These girls are chosen from the Freshman class for
their scholastic standing, pep, and enthusiasm for school functions, to serve
during their Sophomore year.
The duties of a Spur are many and varied. She must he ever ready to
serve her school and to uphold its traditions. It is the Spurs who sell candy
and hot dogs at athletic games, and raise money hy selling donuts, cupcakes
and cream puffs in the dormitories on Thursday nights.
In addition to raising their quota of the amount required to send a delef
gate to the Spur Convention next year, the Spurs have contributed to cam'
pus service projects, and will leave some surplus for next year's group to
start out on.
Hoorah! Hoorah! Hoorah! shouts the student body as it stands gazing
with pride as the Victory Flag ascends the dizzy heights of the flag pole in
celebration of a varsity conference victory. Who pulled at the rope that
hoisted the flag? Why, a Yeoman! Who shinnied up the goal posts on the
football field to wind them with maroon and gray crepe paper? A Yeoman!
Who shows the sights of the campus to visiting groups? You guessed it -
the Yeomen! What else does this Sophomore men's service club do? lt
sponsors campus activities which help everyone get into the U. of R. spirit.
Each member feels his responsibility-group and individual-in making
the campus "home" to every member of the student body.
How does one get to be a Yeoman?
"Well", says Mervyn Voth, this year's prexy, as he scratches his head to
facilitate clear thought, "get all the A's and B's you can, do your duty every
time, and show a real enthusiasm for the worthfvvhile things in life while
you're a Frosh, and when you get to be Soph you'll probably be a Yeoman,
and wear a white Yeoman sweater every Monday."

A rousing fire, a hearty meal, a clever program and
plenty of friendly spirit opened the Y. M. activities
with the annual Fall Stag which gives the new men on
campus their first taste of the Real Redlands Spirit.
The Asilomar delegation was larger than ever this
year, with a Redlands representation of well over our
quota of twenty. The "Y" also sponsored the "Little
Asilomarw at Camp Bethel where Redlands had the
largest delegation in the conference area. In cooperation
with the Y. W., the dining halls were decorated for
special occasion dinners throughout the year, and the
annual Y. M.fY. W. Barbeque exceeded all past records
for food, fun and attendance.
Programs for the weekly MYR meetings have covered
a diversity of fields - men's and vvomenls relations,
frosh orientation, church attendance, and social diseases.
Seasonal programs featuring campus talent were given
at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Bill Easton,
Regional Field Council Secretary for the area, has
worked directly with the cabinet this year, and spoke at
a joint Y. M.fY. W. meeting on campus problems and
U. Hendrick, B. M. Poling, Stenger, Elliott, Bowersox, Johanson, Davis, Watson, Hentschke, Peterson, Howard, Gust
All the up and coming women on campus belong to
the Y. W.-it's just that kind of an organization. lt off
fers fun and fellowship, and is the main campus outlet
for spiritual enthusiasm and Christian feeling. The Y
programs are varied and of the type that seem to call
one back again and again.
Y activities '37738 began last spring with the
Cfhcers' Training Conference at Whittier College,
and continued through the year to the Training Conferf
ence on April 30 at U. C. L. A. Every new woman
who comes to Redlands has a "big sister" who writes to
her during the sum'mer preceding her enrollment at the
U. of R. and takes her on the annual Retreat the Hrst
weekend of the fall semester. The "Big Sister" project
is part of the Y. W. program, and makes many lasting
friendships between "big and little sisters". Each year
the Y. W. sends a delegate to the MidfWinter Asilomar
Conference, and loans money to other delegates.
Anna Mae Davis and Phyllis Robertson have sponf
sored the Frosh Y. VJ. Club organized this year for
Frosh women only. In one year it has become so much
a part of campus activities, that its continuance in the
future is assured.

The "Barons" were organized at the Hrst of this year by members of the
Sophomore class, with Roy Mesker and Wesley Kewish acting as the sponsoring
body, and Ted Schmidtmann and Henry Romo as the Advisory Council. With
membership restricted to frosh men, the club took as its purpose "the promotion

After electing Lee Rose, Bob Anderson, Eugene Giedt, and Don 'Brewer to
positions of control, the first semester got under way with a mountain party, sevf
eral ice skating and roller skating parties, theater parties, and, of course, the
Baron formal. Beginning the second semester, the Barons published the ref
nowned "Baron Burps", which was issued fortnightly and edited by Homer Bm'
merton and Bob Anderson. The paper met with unanimous approval of all the
members. The second semester also found new officers which were Neal Lashlee
and George Willcins, while Lee Rose and Don Brewer were honored the second

Tokumi Hamako sounded the gavel which opened the first meeting of the new
year for the Cosmopolitan Club. Activities opened with a getftogether for old
members and persons interested in joining the organization. The display of cos'
tumes representing the homeland or native dress of the members gave the affair
the atmosphere of an international relations conference.
Seeking to foster international goodwill through personal friendship, the Cos'
mopolitan Club sponsors many social activities during the year for students of
foreign birth or descent, and interested nativefborn students. Nine different na'
tionalities are represented in the club this year, and a number of its members
have lived for considerable time in foreign countries.
The gavel was handed over to Harold Scott second semester, and the group
continued to take a lead in campus affairs. Beside the desert parties, the annual
Halloween costume party, a merry St. Patricks Day festival, and dinners given
by sponsors, the club has had many informal meetings with outside speakers, and
discussion meetings when problems pertinent to the group were dealt with. Delef
gations from the Cosmopolitan Club put on evening church programs at Hemet
and Banning, and entertained with typical programs at the local Lions and Ro'

La Letra has come out again-at last! lt is a tradition-this annual busif

year of planning, of real work-building-to put out a single issue.
We chose "Buildi'ngH for our theme for several reasons. Cur campus
buildings are famous for line, design and arrangement, so we dressed them
up in color and put them on the division plates. But that didn't seem to be
enough-the real building that is college had to be brought in somehow.
Edwin Markham helped out by expressing in poetry what we tried to show
through pictures, captions, and arrangement, but the real "thanks" goes to
the Student Body which turned out one activity after another, attended
chapel and classes, had a few bull sessions, got a few ideas, and became bet'
ter adjusted to life generally.
Now, at the end of another year,the blueprints have been drawn, checked
and rechecked, the framework has been covered and decorated--La Letra
has been built--but the Student Body goes right on building-for La Letra,

A September flash: MAR JORIE LYON TO EDIT THE U. OF R. CAMPUS.
A headline which stirred the campus: UNIVERSITY PAPER CHANGES NAME
PROM stCAMPUS,, TO MBULLDOGH.
An early bulletin: Mrs. Sargent's journalism class is attempting to obtain
full coverage of all campus activities for the 'iBuZldog". Every Student
has full privileges of a stall member, and is directly responsible to the
editor for all assignments. The full cooperation of the Student Body in
this undertaking will be sincerely appreciated.
To whom it may concern: The "Bulldogs" columns are open impartially
to all who desire to make suggestions or air grievances. It is the policy of
the Bulldog staff to further free discussion of campus affairs by opening
the editorial columns to any student desiring such space.
Hot off the wire: U. OF R. HBulldog" BREAKS EVEN FINANCIALLY. It
must have been the unrelaxing zeal of Ernie Troutner in the managerial
room, while Frank Rice stayed up nights trying to figure out a new line
to Sell advertisers.
Bright and early fbefore chapel evenj on the momentous day of April
25, the Siren, annual allfcollege literary magazine, was ready for distrif
bution. With the 1938 issue resplendent in a new jacket of brilliant orange,
the Siren reached a new high in sales and popularity.
The editors, Elsie Iohnson and "Doc" Walker, nearly burst their buttons
with pride over their success, remembering the long hours of "dredging" for
short stories, articles and poetry, and the longer hours of editing with the
accompaniment of iingernailfchewing, headfscratching, and assorted bits of
Since it is the annual chance for U. of R. students to see themselves in
print, they do it up right, and we get a new slant on campus personalities
when a poem in the Siren reveals a lost love by the "Sanky", or an imaginaf
tive bit gives us an 'insight into a suppressed desire. Why, who would ever
have thought of footballfhero Nicholson as a poet if his "Dead Memories"
had never come out in the Siren?
By the skillful guidance of Marie Webster we were led along the paths of
true love, with the clever meandering of Lee Launer we saw the noble
Shakespeare abused Q and we liked itjg and we got plenty of giggles out of

If youlll look at this bulletin before chapel, you'll hnd the name, occupation, and a
brief description of the speaker of the morning.
This bulletin is the official daily University News Distributor. Ten typewritten
copies of this onefpaged news organ are put out each afternoon by Margery Stevens
of the Publicity Cflice Staff. Copies are posted in specihed places in all main buildings.
All notices for the Daily Bulletin must be written out and turned in to the Publicity
Ofhce by 4 P. M. of the day previous to the one on which they are to appear.
This bulletin carries notices of class and organization meetings, official decrees from
the administration, announcements of interesting concerts and lectures, athletic
schedules, and notices of victories. In it can be found practice schedules for plays
and Zanja Fiesta, and it even helps the La Letra editor get groups assembled for pic'
tures. As an advertising organ, it is invaluable.
The most widely read single issue on the campus, the Bulletin is priceless as a med'
ium for reaching any group on the campus or the student body at large. Maintained
as a feature of the Publicity Qflice program, its "columns" are open to anyone free of
The forensic season was something like a thunder storm . . . plenty
of noise and an occasional flash of brilliance. While the record of the
year was not spectacular, in every tournament, Redlands reached the
top in something.
The first battle was held on Armistice Day at Bakersfield, and James
Logan contributed another trophy to the collection by winning in ex'
tempore speaking. Tom Shields took second in oratory. At the West'
ern Speech Teachers' Association Convention in Denver, the team had
its first experience with an entirely new type of contest, but came
through in one event, Shields placing in oratory.
The girls earned their share of the glory at the Pasadena College
tournament in February, when Barbara White won in extempe and
all the four entries reached the Hnals in oratory. Willa Roberts finally
took the prize. The lower division squad scored an upset by snatching
the squad championship away from U. S. C. in a lower division tour'
nament at Glendale.

The climax of the season was the eastern trip to the Twelfth Naf
tional Convention of Pi Kappa Delta, held at Topeka, Kansas on the
twentyffifth anniversary of the founding of the organization. In addif

assembly patterned after the Congress, in which Tom Shields was a
senator. Debates were held en route with the University of Arizona,
Cttawa University, William Jewell, and Park College.
The installation of the voicefrecording machine made possible a
number of innovations, including longfdistance debating. Several ref
corded debates were held with various colleges, and were a lot of fun
as well as excellent training.

With the great lover, Pat Pattison, playing the part of
the wooing truck driver, the AllfCollege play 'LWl11fC
Collars" was presented to the Student Body on May 27
and 28. An allfstar cast lent to this rollicking comedy Of
middle class emotions the genuine humor one finds when
a sometimesfworking man like Henry Thayer, played by Howard Vim
Winkle, takes himself too seriously. Henry is the thorn in the complacency
of the hardfworking, wellfmeaning family of Thayers whose cousin he is.
"White Collars," a threefact play by Edith Ellis, revolves around the ad'
ventures of the Thayer family after its eldest daughter, Ioan, played by
Doris Honberger, tells them she is to be married to her billionaire emplOY6f,
William Van Luyn CBill Roskam about the campusj. So all goes well, un'
til Van Luyn's sister Sally steps into the picture and throws the monkey'
wrench into the situation. Sally Van Luyn, portrayed by Marjorie Lyon
shows common sense and hum'or under her slightly autocratic mann6f-
With the poise of an American Dollar Princess, Sally is accustomed to
bearing the brunt of the social obligations from which William runs away.
When William marries Joan, he falls into the clutches of Henry Thayer,
who soon convinces him, so we were led to think, to give all his money to
start a foundation for the benefit of the Great Middle Class. This move
brings utter despair into the life of Helen Thayer, Ioan's younger sister,
QMary Lightfootj, who had hoped for big things to come her way when
her sister married into the Van Luyn family. Helen, more often called Nell,
seems to be fated to be the wife of Tom Gobney, the truck driver.
The bewilderment of the parents of these ambitious offspring was excel'
lently carried out by MiQdred McCall and Virginia Brewster, who alternatf
ed in the part of Mrs. Thayer, and Ben Haddock, who played the part of
the father. Frank Thayer, the son of the family, is very indifferent. to the
whole matter, and the family's acquisition of a billionaire means little or
nothing to him. Frank, as we saw him portrayed by Lynn
Leavenworth, was the flyfwheel of the Thayer family's
automobile, which Mr. and Mrs. Thayer tried to hold to'
getherg which Helen kicked around, and which Henry
took to pieces every day.

The call of the Bulldog Band brought forth some forty of the school's
best musicians in goodflooking maroon and gray uniforms, who tooted and
thumped through the football season in the best approved Benny Goodman
manner. Not content to let the matter drop with the games, they let every
one on the highways know that the University of Redlands Band was on
the road home from another victory.
A small group made the air lively at the basketball games, and this same
group accompanied the Men's Glee Club on its northern trip as disciples of
King Rhythm and German Goosefstep melodies.
The latest Swingftime arrangements of old favorites and campus melodies
impressed our five hundred University Day guests, and Zanja Fiesta saw
Bill Cook waving the baton over the most colossal instrumental group in
campus history. While Bill Cook conducted, Kenny Banks, the manager,
tended to stray notes, appointments and plans, and Grant Ewald, the librarf
ian dashed about with the music sheets under his arm.

prospects look pretty good to Manager Banks, who is already counting his

The masculine vocalists of the campus have settled down to the routine
of classes, a date or two, and local concerts after one of the most highlighted
seasons on record. This was the year for the northern tour, so on the
Wednesday before Easter vacation, one of the most superflooking sleeper
bus was loaded with books, musical instruments, suitcases, and gleeclubbers,
and pulled out for their first concert in Glendale. They put Redlands on
the map of Northern California by singing in churches and schools from
here to San Francisco, and back again.
Under the direction of Professor Olds, they really hit the top in the rec'
ord broadcast over the Don Lee hookup, and the Philharmonic Auditorium
echoed for days after the concert broadcast from its stage. The climax came
in the winning of second place honors at the Spring Glee Club contest at
Quartets, trios, soloists and feature artists were to be had for the asking,
and the i'German band" which accompanied the club on the northern trip
added much to the appeal it had for student groups.

Why do I prefer living in Fairmont? Well-let's see-first, it's the dorm
nearest the chapel Qnot so far to sprint in the morningj and it's quiet
enough to get a little sleep once in a while without being morgueish. Then,
there's the homey atmosphere. The nreplace helps a lot, but it is really the
attitude of the girls which makes you feel you're a part of one large family.
There are little courtesies shown in Fairmont not common to the other
dorms, and there is a group unity among the girls not possible in a larger
hall. Mrs. Ruth Esterly, our head resident, and her assistant, Anne Redden,
take a personal interest in each of the girls, and try to keep the house on an
even keel. They cooperated with the nrst semester officers, Eleanor Foulke,
Roberta Thompson and Ruth Heydon in serving a Sunday evening supper
in our own living room, and in the annual Christmas party when St. Nick
made another welcome appearance, and in other traditional Fairmont un'
dertakings-Cpen House with its profusion of gay flowers and candy in
abundance, formal dresses, and spotless rooms, the Homecoming decorations
which won Fairmont second prize with the theme "Hold That Line".
The reins were turned over second semester to Winifred Cavanah, Wy'
nona Ellington and Frances Hunting who helped keep a fire in the fireplace
during the flood, and some semblance of order during the frantic period of

Do you want to know where the best fudge on the campus is made?
Well, it's in Grossmont Hall where every one of its seventyfsix girls is an
expert in the usoftfball artu.
Not only the smell of fudge permeates the air, but also the tantalizing
odor of, say, meatloaf or tamale pie, announcing the forthcoming meal, and
making the distance between breakfast and luncheon seem endless. And
then there's the new baker who has won a place in the hearts of all dorm
women with his cakes, pies, cookies and unusual desserts.
It is a tranquil dorm until the telephone's incessant call brings forth a
banging of doors, a clatter of heels on the stairs, and a demure "hello" as
another Grossmont girl accepts a date for the affair of the moment. Phone
calls are a community enterprise in Grossmont - it takes your roomy, a
couple of suitemates and a friend or two to carry on a successful telephone
Early in the fall Grossmont living room donned its party clothes for a

Parker and Mrs. Langendorfer. When the women's dorms decided to have
Open House, Grossmont drawers had all manner of stray articles stuffed inf
to them in order to hold up their end of the bargain. Garbed in P. fs. and

Bekins rates again as the home of over two score "beautiful babes." lts
old walls have, for another time, withstood the shock of "stacking" and
they have reeked for yards around of garlic, rank perfume and vinegar, all
symbols of Frosh women's initiation. Its charges have sassed "Life begins at
forty" to exacting sophomores, blown out fuses trying to make light of
studying, beautihed its exterior for 'Lhome coming."
With a Christmas tree and fitting festivity, Bekins Babes held their
Christmas party en masse before the cozy fireplace. Throughout the year
one hears the familiar crackling sound which foretells another of those ever
important popcorn feeds at the midnight hour. The fireplace, and hospital'
ity in abundance were offered to flood refugees from across the quad.
Hazel Fleming, Betty Lou Reynolds, and Margaret McAuliffe kept the
house together during the first semester as president, vicefpresident, and
secretaryftreasurer respectively, while Marcia Alber, Miriam Poling, and
Wanetta Thomas strove to maintain its superfstandards in the same capacif
ties during the second semester.
lf you should ask Doris Wilbur in her presidential capacity to tell you
about conditions at Knoll Hall she would say: "The impressive surround'
ings imbued with the influence of former presidents prompts an enthusiastic
U. of R. spirit of congeniality and hospitality."
This, to the public-but if you should arrive early in the morning you
would find very little dignity. Sleepy girls are unfastening curlers, anchor'
ing hair ribbons at the exact angle preferred by the boy friend, while the
toast burns and the jam spoon slips down the sticky jar, for most of the fiff
teen girls find it too far to go to Grossmont for breakfast.
Nearly any time of the day the calm voices of a dozen blaring radios can
be heard soothing the tired nerves of Mrs. Maud McAhren, head resident.
Smothered giggles at the midnight spreads enhance the decorum of the hall.
There is no mistaking the U. of R. spirit which found an outlet in the
miniature football theme which won Knoll Hall first prize in the dormitory
decoration race at Homecoming. Nor was hospitality lacking in the Thanks'
giving gift of food to a needy family.
Their Scavenger Hunt showed them in their true light - a funfloving
group of girls who enjoyed equally well their snow party at Forest Home
and their Mother's Tea in May.
Me? You mean you want me to write up Cal Hall for La Letra? Say,
listen, m' friend, you don't know what you're asking, why, I never wrote
anything in my life. If you printed something I wrote in your annual, you'd
never even get fourth class rating. Besides, there's nothing to say about Cal
Hall-it's the noisiest joint on campus-especially when you want to sleep
-probably because so many Frosh live here.
The dining room? Yes, the Men's Dining room is a part of California
Mansion, and the club room is used for extra special dinners, like when
someone has a big party, or there is a bigfshot guest in the dining hall. Say,
what is this, an interview? Well, go ahead, I'd rather tell you, than have
to write it myself.
Sixtyffour fellows live here-from all classes even if the Frosh do seem to
have a monopoly. Cal Hall bull sessions are famous the world over, and we
always wait up on Thursday nights for the Spurs to bring us donuts. Bob
Moore was house president this year, and Harry Nicholson was elected sec'
Don't we ever do anything exciting? Well, sister, that wouldn't be for
publication - but we did put out a little extra effort and decorated for
Homecoming, and you can't say we didn't do a mighty swell job of muckf

Imagine a small community of brains, brawn, philosophical conjecturing,
and insane, maniacal oiffpopping all living under the same roof. Well, that
is the sort of a family Mrs. Anne Parker has to contend with eight days a
week. Even at that, this hftyftwo piece symphony is a harmonious aiiair,
despite the riotous moments when it's every man for himself-berserk to
The scene changes-We are in the living room. A fire burns brightly in
the fireplace, and houselights are turned lower. Upstairs a door closes as
two more Men of Melrose come downto House Meeting, and the circle
around the ire enlarges to include two panting latefcomers who had to run
all the way across the quad because they couldn't get the galffriend to go in
Now the business has been completed, and a dozen or so fellows are mov'

Yes, it happened again this year-a beautiful Lantern Parade. Une
September night we dressed ourselves in white and carried paper lanterns
as we sang to each dorm in turn. Our feet got wet and our hands got
cold but we didn't care because we were applauded by all those on the
campus who heard.
After "tipftoeing" around the campus and forming a semifcircle in

Interview Dr. Cranston. on Honors Work This 'Year
X By affording certain students a chance to read for
honors the University of Redlands pursues a policy
which has well vindicated itself in a number of instituf
tions in this country and abroad.
The plan assumes that any college group contains a minority
of students potentially fitted to do superior work. A faculty
committee receives applications and selects such students at or
after the beginning of their junior year, according them the
privilege of reading for honors during the remainder of their
college course. In addition to fulfilling the general requirements,
these honors candidates engage in additional study, partly upon
their own initiative and partly upon the guidance of instruct'
ors who through tutorial seminars, private conferences, and inf
dividualized instruction assist the student in his reading, study,
and writing. At times the honors students meet as a body in
social fellowship or for the discussion of matters -of common
interest. I '
A student is not expected to undertake reading for honors unless he has more than
usual ability, diligence, resourcefulness, enthusiasm for investigation and creative thought,
and enough uninterrupted time to follow his studies with something like scholarly composf
ure and detachment.
At the end of his senior year each student who has consistently read for honors is given
both written and oral examinations, more searching than those taken by the majority of his
classmates. If he passes these examinations with satisfactory distinction he is recommended
to the trustees for graduation with honors, or in exceptional cases with high honors or even

"What happened at Homecoming this year? Well, get your pencil and

again many classmates, people who had almost become shadowy figur6S ill
the memories of a life that seems almost like a dream now. To fraternity

This year Homecoming was set for November 20, so we could see the

And although we didn't win, we didn't lose. Whatta game!
More memories were revived when we stampeded into the gym at the
sound of the call to eat. Between bits of conversation, we ate something,
and tried to pay attention to the talks given by Ray Redding, Alumni Assof
Ciatifm PfCSiClCH'C3 Ralph Jensen of the Trustees, and Acting President H. E.
During the morning we dropped in at the dorms, decorated for the occas'
ion, and relocated our old rooms where we used to spend all night studying
for hnals, or settling the problems of the world at our midnight feeds when
someone received a box from home. l'll never forget coming home late one

Dark male figures swarm from room to room while a conf

Then in a hysterical voice of slightly higher pitch,
g'Where's Pinkerton? Jerry, you have him in your pocket. I

And after much persuasive oratory on the part of the girl,
"Pinkerton", the little pink toy dog, is finally restored to the
girl and the tvvo dark figures are seen going out of the door
helping themselves to a generous handful of candy.
ln another room, we ind four young men who have
formed an investigation committee taking their work very
seriously. One stands with a pencil and paper in hand while another looks under the
bed and grades what he Hnds there, a third runs his fingers over the top of the door for
dust, as the fourth investigates the windows, while the poor girl stands in the corner
and prays inwardly that they won't look in the closet. .
In contrast, down the hall a little different scene takes place. Candy is damtily off
fered and graciously accepted by two courteous visitors from the east side of the
quadrangle. With polite admiration for an artistic room they pass on to the next.
ASSIGNMENT 9 DEC. 4
Cut of the many and confused impressions of campus life which I gleaned
during my first year of college, there remains at least one memory standing
out as distinctly as trees on a hillftop. This is my Hrst Vesper service.
It was out of sheer curiosity that I went. Being no musician, I confif
dently expected to be bored, but being also a woman, I wanted to try it once
just to see what it was like. So I went to Vespers.
Seated in the chapel, I was distinctly ill at ease, for I did not know how to
act. Then the service began and I was suddenly aware that there was only
one way to act. There are some few occasions when the single possible attif
tude is the silence of great wonder. This was such an occasion.
Whether it was the music or the chapel, I cannot say, perhaps it was
both, but it was a tremendous experience. The place was unlighted save
for the two tall candles on the organ, and their flames made twin points of
brightness in the halfflight. Beyond these glowed the chapel window, its
brilliant reds and blues growing deeper and richer in the dusk until Hnally
only the pale, luminous face of the Christ remained.
And all the time, there was music such as I had never heard, filling the
chapel with loveliness. Music, bowing us all to prayer with the same ref
sistless force of winds prostrating a field of grass. There were deep tones
reverberating through the arches and crashing in gigantic waves of sound.
There were round, cool notes that came as smoothly as rainfdrops roll from
curved leaves, and muted notes bearing with them the warm security of
hills and the eternal blessing of peace.
I do not know what songs were played or whether they were hymns or
not. I only know that when the window was lighted for the last one, I felt
that surely uthe glory of the Lord shone round about us."

Asilomar "Post,'. Particulars from Alva fohangon
Asilomar isn't a means of escape into lofty ideals which aren't workable when we get
back to earth, but an opportunity to sit on a high branch and get a short comprehensive
view of the whole of life as the sum of all its parts. We get closer to real values through
informal contacts with vital, gripping personalities-perhaps in a fireside conversation or
chatting along the beach. New, wholesome friendships are formed with people we'd never
meet unless in a similar situation. Frost's idea-
He is all pine and I am apple orchard
My apple trees will never get across and eat under his pines.
is completely disregarded for as Dr. Coe said, "At Asilomar here, each is a personality in
his own right!"
Instead of coming back, feeling as if all the burdens and problems of life rest upon your
shoulders, you are enlightened because of a sharper awareness of world trends, and a deep'
er conviction of the need of Christian living.
I consider Asilomar as one of the happiest
and most signincant experiences of my life,
for with a growing consciousness of social re'
sponsibility, the hidden values of daily ass-of
ciation with people and new knowledge are
fully appreciated, giving this life of ours a
richer, more vibrant meaning. You can make
up for lost time but never make up for lost
If you go to Asilomar openfminded, searchf
ing possible solutions for problems you are
facing, and honestly try to integrate the
highest values into your personality, you
can't say simply-"I went to Asilomarw. You
are compelled to say, 'Tm still on my way".

Follow up on Meo1's Open House
When Melrosefites began tacking up 1938 calendars after
the holidays, someone suggested that it must be time to clean
the dorm rooms. It sounded like a good idea, and also a good
excuse for an Qpen House. Cal Hall ofhcials were consulted,
and with their rooms duly cleaned, scraped, and redecorated,
both dorms threw open their doors on January I9 that all
might come and see how a dormitory room CAN look.
The procession of inspectors started at California Hall,
and proceeded to Melrose. When every room' had been
checked and rechecked, and notes taken on articles to be inf
veigled from their owners at a later date, hosts and visitors
gathered in the Melrose living room for refreshments, and a homeftalent program
featuring a battle of nitfwits by the two Melrose Morons, ,Iensen and Burness.
'But the hands of the chapel clock were wound tighter than usual and almost be'
fore anyone had had time to get acquainted, the fair ones were called back to the
west side of the quad, leaving the men to become refacquainted with their unfamiliar'
appearing rooms. Someone suggested that Qpen House be held oftener so rooms could
be made livable more frequently. Yes, there's a place for everything, but the trouble
is that until Qpen House, everything is in UNE place.

Breakfast at Holstrom's Cafe in Riverside so reinforced the crowd that
they hooted and sang all the way to Laguna Beach, where the bathhouse had
been rented, and the beach was ready and waiting for the advent of the ref

the rocks-and so on-took up the time till lunch, which was eaten on the

busses took off for Fullerton, where a steakfbake came in very, very handy

THE SENIOR CLASS
The Class of '38 started out successfully in college by placing highest in the nation in
their entrance English test. "BrainfTrusters", they called us, and we've lived up to the
name throughout these four years.
Not contented to be merely superior in stu dies, the seniors proved to be a versatile group
in other campus activities. We instilled new life into dramatic offerings, we sho-wed origf
inality in journalistic endeavors, our musical talent was outstanding, we were excellent in
forensics, and our ine record in student government portrayed us as a class of unusual
ability. In athletics we contributed our share, coming through with a few stars and many
Desert parties, mountain parties, skating sprees, hayrides, barn dances, swimming meets,
and snow fights colored the class's social life. Under senior presidents Ross Harrington
and Mal Rink, this last year has been a big success, climaxed by that neverftofbefforgotten
Ditchfday and Commencement Week.
Four years at that dear old U. of R .... and thanks to you professors who inspired usg
thanks to this uplifting atmosphere and the surroundings, the beautiful campus, the moun'
tains, the desert, and all our college fun and seriousness mixed. The Class of 38 says "AM
' "The years can never mar
The memories of thee we love so well,
Where the friendships are so dear
That we leave them with a tear,
That dear old U. of R. we love so well."

THE JUNIUR CLASS
Registration day saw the Junior Class swelled to almost
twice its normal size. That presented a problem-what to do
with all of these newcomers. Get them' acquainted, of course!
An old fashioned funffest seemed to be just the thing! At the
Log Cabin of the Casa Loma saddles, lanterns, game trophies
and costumes lent atmosphere while the coyotes on the plains
of Orange street howled to make this western party seem more
The Juniors settled down to getting themselves through
school, and preparing to take over the reins when this year's
Seniors are out of the way. But there was still time
for a class snow party at Forest Home, and the draf
matic execution of the Seniors on Senior Ditch Day.
The second semester saw the Juniors take the inf
terclass track meet, and Darrell Hudlow place so high
in the Qjai Tennis Tournament that he qualified for
the National Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament to
be held this summer in Philadelphia. And one glance
at the Eastern Debate Squad shows which class
brought honor to Redlands in the forensic line!

THE SUPHUMURE CLASS
The applause thundered for "The Valiant". The Sophomore
Class swelled with pride as its play was commended, and
they kept on swelling as the second consecutive win for the
class of '40 in the annual lnterclass Play Tournament was an'
nounced. Sophomore dramatic talent showed up later in the
All College Play, "White Collars", and in the Zanja Fiesta.
From this class come the Spurs and the Yeomen who do their
part in keeping U. of R. spirit at a high pitch. They were not
too busy serving the campus to organize the Frosh Men's
Clubs, the "Dukes" and the "Barons", which will carry over
into future years.
But it has not been all work for the Sophof
mores-there was the hazing of the frosh, the
annual SophfFrosh Brawl, and the class par'
ties-all clay in the snow at Forest Home, and
the skating party early in the second se'

We dispensed with the minutes of the preceding year. How'
ever, we took the roll and found that no spirit was absent. We
began our year under the leadership of Jay Settle, Clayton
Jolley, Sue Grider, and Bill Hardy.
Qf course, we started right in by showing the Sophomores,
at the SophfFrosh Brawl, just who was who and whohad the
We had lots of fun with the traditional "Bonfire" even
though it evoked groans from the class pocketbook.
The Viking class of '41 had a very successful year with
many social events. We'll always remember the time we put on
our hiking boots and went to Hart's Lodge in the Valley of
the Falls, and the Snow Party when everyone came home
soaked and stiff but ready to make it an annual affair.
Bill Hardy, Margaret McAuliffe, Bruce Jewell, and June

Misunderstoord and wrongly classified by the student body at large as
anything from Freshmen to Specials, seven U. of R. graduates have added
another year to their college life. The Catalogue lists the names of ninety'
five graduate students, but of this number only about seven are in constant
touch with the undergraduate studentfbody fall members of that illustrious
class of '37j. Bill Cook holds a teaching fellowship in music.
Alice Winebrenner and Helen Hohman, both doing graduate work in
music and education are assistant headresidents and have learned what it
means to wait up for young things to come in. Bill Cook, Walter Lott and
Claf Frodsham have lent their "mature" voices to the men's glee club and
were very much present on the San Francisco trip.
Because a graduate course is comparatively new at the University of Red'
lands, few have ventured into the master's Held. William McAllister is the
one brave soul of our group, but during the spring thesis season even he had
to bury himself in the tombs until his studies were completed.
Six will receive general secondary teaching credentials come Commencef
ment and have something tangible for their time and money.
Mary Louise Pettingill however, is training for social welfare work.
Howard Van Winkle earned a reputation as a reader in the Education de'
partment and added further glory to his venerable name by being the hrst of
our group to land a job.

From the opening whistle of the Loyola encounter at Gilmore
Stadium to the final gun in the tussle with Whittier, Coach Cushf
manls 1937 football team thrilled fans with its famous Hrazzlef
dazzle" brand of ball playing. This year's team, heavier than
usual, relied on line plunging when the air circus failed to click.
With tremendous power and deception, coupled with three
blocked kicks and a series of intercepted passes, the Lions walked
away with a 27fO victory. The heavy 'Bulldog team lacked the
Hnal punch to put the ball over against the Del Rey eleven.
Pomona was taken into camp when the powerhouse line out'
played the Sagehens on the Bulldog's home field. Tied 6f6 at the
half, the Redlands machine moved into action with Garth Huff
faker bucking over two more tallies after prolonged marches from
midfheld to win 2Of6.
Smashing to 0ccidental's one yard line the Bulldogs were un'
able to push the ball over for a score. Groves, fleet halfback, kept
the Bulldogs on their heels all afternoon with his flashy ball carry'
ing and punt returning. Jimmy Blaisdell did as much to Oxy
with his superb quarterbacking. From the 23 yard line Huffaker
missed a field goal, and despite the long runs neither team was
able to shake the other loose for a score.
Fog so thick it could be cut with a knife, and
the La Verne Leopards held the Bulldogs to a
lone score the following week. Late in the
third quarter Mal Rink, husky center
blocked a punt which paved the way to the
6fO Bulldog victory. With odds 4Of1
against them, the Bulldogs met the
Aztecs from San Diego State on No'
vember 6. The first time the Aztecs
took the ball they ran to a touch'
down and conversion with little op'
position. But it was the last time
they got to the goal line that aff
. X .
ternoon. The Bulldog barricade held
many thrusts, even a iirstfandften on the
six yard line. ln the second half, a long
pass from Huilaker to Raitt was good
for 6 points and l more when Huiliaker
converted. From the 29 yard line, in the
third quarter, Hull-aker again booted the
hall over the cross bar for three points.
ln the fourth quarter San Diego caught
Redlands behind the goal line for two
points. When the final gun went off Redlands led 1Of9, and for the first
time this year San Diego had been scored upon and beaten.
Armistice Day found the Bulldogs on Spartan Field at San Jose. Bogged
down by mud the lighter Redlands team, minus the efforts of Blaisdell, put
up a valiant fight. Kelly Moore intercepted a San Jose lateral pass and was
off to a touchdown until he slipped in the mud. San Jose won the struggle
The last game found the Redlands Bulldogs evenly m'atched with the
Whittier men on the Poet's home field. The first half was as uneventful as
a locked up checker game, but the second half featured Whittier snagging
Redlands passes. Unable to get closer than the 13 yard line, the Maroon
and Cray failed another field goal, and at thehnal gun the score was CPO.
The win over the highly touted Conference Champions, from San Diego
State College, placed Redlands in third position in final standing.
Mal Rink, center, and Jim Blaisdell, quarterback, were placeed on the
mythical AllfConference team, and Carth Huffiaker placed on the second
team at fullback.

After three straight losses Coach Ashel Cunningham's 193768
U. of R. basketball squad buckled down to take third place in
conference standing. Whittier nosed out winning scores in the
first two games and Cxy copped another, then Redlands settled
down and trounced La Verne. The Maroon clad five split the bill
with San Diego in a blood and thunder battle on the Bulldog's
home floor. The Aztecs led at the half and the fans tore out their
lungs while the Bulldogs held the casaba the major part of the sec'
ond half and sunk enough baskets to win by 4 digits.
A nine point win over Cxy gave the Bulldogs third conference
standing behind the Poets and the Aztecs.
Nine men received letters for their efforts on the court. Bruce
Clark made his third award, Dave Tracht his second and the fol'
lowing men came through for first year awards: Dick Pazder,
Mervyn Voth, Earl Conner, Harry Nicholson, Larry Scott, Garth
Huffaker and Darrel Hudlow. Pazder was picked as AllfConferf

Winding up in fourth place in the Conference meet, Coach Cushman's Bulldog track
stars had a successful season. Winning one meet from La Verne by a lopsided score and
running close seconds to other teams earned the Hscanty pants" boys from the U. of R. a
reputation of being a threat.
"Big John" Raitt stole the show by heaving the shot 49 feet 8 inches for new records,
the discus well over 140 feet and the javelin in the 180's. Henry Logan proved to be a
sensation in the 440 yard dash. Hatch and Rolens made the hurdles look like molefhills
and took middle distances in nothing flat. There were plenty less spectacular performers
who tried hard and picked up points for U. of R, in their favorite events.

Featuring heavy hitting and steady pitching, Coach Cunningham's diamond dusting
baseball squad captured second place in the Conference. San Diego's highly touted horse'
hide nine won the first place honors, and the Whittier Poets garnered a third place.
Dick Pazder, the big blonde Pole, is rated as one of the best receivers in the loop. Harry
Nicholson, star moundsman, showed brilliant at times and came through many tight situaf
tions to pull the game out of the fire. Hartley Hillsen and James Blaisdell did relief work,
and Elashy Paul Jeffery played a standout season at the first sack. Bill McKinney, diminuf
tive second baseman, was out part of the season with a leg injury, but while he did play
the opponents couldn't get one by him, and he talks the best game in the conference, ref
gardless of whether he's on the bench or guarding the sack. Bud Foster did relief work for
McKinney while he was out, Larry Scott, in his second year at shortstop, gave a brilliant
performance. Lanky Earl Conner, held the "hot sack" down with sterling playing, and
the fly chasers, Mal Rink, Jim Blaisdell, Roger Weeks, Miller Ervin and Kelly Moore, self
dom missed their chance at- nabbing the pill.
Those making their letters were: Seniors-Blaisdell and McKinney, third year awards,
Rink, Weeks, and Conner, second year letters, and Moore, the big block "R" for the Hrst
time in baseball. Juniors, who won letters, are Nicholson, Scott, and Pazder, their second
award, while Jeffery QRiverside J. C. transferl, nabbed hishrst. Hillsen, Ervin, and Eos'

When the Bulldog netsters start wielding a racquet for Redlands, there's not
a team in the conference which can even begin to compare with these first class
racqueteers. For the fifth time in five years Coach Lynn Jones has seen his netf
men come out on the long end of conference competition. U. of R. success at
the Cjai tournament made the year' round practice worth while, and Redlands
continues to he the conference example of good, consistent tennis playing.
Winning sixteen out of their eighteen matches put the Bulldog racqueteers in
first place. The two practice matches lost to U. C. L. A. and Pasadena I. C
were later redeemed hy large scores. ln confer'
ence playoffs, Darrel Hudlow won the singles,
and a chance to enter national competition in

MEN'5 "fl" CLUB
Each year the La Letra editor starts reminding the "R" Club president
about ag semester before copy is due that an article is desired concerning his
organization, its purpose, function, and excuse for existing. Each year it
usually ends up by the editor or some overfworked member of the staff writ'
ing the article. True to form, Jimmy Blaisdell got around it this year by ask'
ing that we leave a blank, and merely indicate that: "This is where jimmy
Blaisdell should have written an article". So here it is, news of the Men's
"R" Club, through a woman's eyes:
All the men who wear maroon sweaters with the big "R" on them are
members of the "R" Club, which has meetings periodically, and makes itself
known for enforcing traditions. ln the fall, the familiar command "Button,
Froshln, brings back memories to many a U. of R. fellow. "Queening" is
the special privilege of "R" Club members-so the Frosh are lead to believe,
and it is the "RH Club members who superintend the P. Marino, and the
annual cleaning of the Rugged R. To get into the "R" Club, one must
have earned a letter in some varsity sport.

WUMEN'S "R" CLUB
"Do you really belong to the Women's 'R' Club? How did you ever
"Well, to get into the organization you first go out for every sport
when you are a freshman. Then, you go out for every sport the next
year as a sophomore. And, you repeat the process as a junior. And,
then when you have garnered your 1,000 points, and proven your
sportsmanship and scholarship, you emerge as a fullfiledged member.
You see, this is the highest athletic recognition given to women on this
campus. Your reward is the maroon sweater with your letter
'Rf Having membership in the 'R' Club, as a goal, and the privilege of
wearing the sweater, makes your hours spent in participation in sports
worth more than just the "fun" you get out of them. This year June
Gust has been the president, and Betty Van Ginkel pushed the secre'
tary's pencil. Barbara Georgi, Hazel Howard, Mabel Cole, Margaret
Hwk, Alva Johanson, jay Long wear the sweaters, and Betsy Newby
will have her's before very long."

W. A. A. CABINET
Gf course l belong to W. A. A.! What would my college education be like without
some informality! This is the only organization in the whole institution where one may
drop dignity, etiquette, books, everything-even makefup f if you go in for swimmingl. A
cheery smile and a sense of sportsmanship are all you need, you naturally have some class
spirit and the rules of the game are easily learned. Anyone who shows a little pep and go
is gladly accepted. We have every kind of sport a woman could want, coached by Miss
Cragg and Mrs. Plantico-who, by the by, is leaving us since she has found a sport we
don't offer-fkeeping house for a husbandj-and managed by W. A. A. members.
We have had some fine publicity this year under the direction of Margaret Blankenship.
And what organization doesn't treasure a scrap book! Betsy Newby has been keeping
ours up to date.
All of these people mentioned form the W. A. A. board. Hazel Howard wielded the
presidential gavel this year and Alva Johanson was Vice President-and has she ever plan'
ned some swell parties! lay Long has kept track of our pennies while Ruth Heydon took
down the minutes.
Cf course you know we have a point system-so many points for each sport participat'
ed in gradually leads to earning one of those good looking sweaters. Fun, competition, ex'
ercise, parties, meets, rides, playfdays, hikes, tournaments-and to top it all, you get to
really know girls in every class and club and sorority on the campus.

Nowlin, Mrs. Plantico
Ladies and gentlemen, you are now tuned in to the Annual' Women's Sports Broadcast,
presented each Spring over station U. of R. Before the review gets under way, let me
give you a brief introductory note on the Women s Athletic situation:
We have seasonal sports which are played every Monday and Wednesday. The first in
the fall is basketball which was managed this year by Helen Holsingerg next we relax with
a little speedball managed by Margery Stevens, then came hockey with zfxlysmae Nowlin as
manager. Volleyball and baseball were played practically together with Margaret Hook
and Peg Dudley sharing the manager's bench. Then there are the minor sports - hiking,
pingfpong, badminton, bicycling, etc.-managed by Alice Carter. We swim under Marjorie
Lyon's direction, and ride horseback with Jean Ballantyne in charge. There is also archery
headed by Betty Van Ginkel and tennis with Mabel Cole worrying over ladders and tourf
naments. We also have a National dancing club, which includes natural and aesthetic
dancing, called Orchesis with Bette Lipscomb in charge.
We have dropped the "mike" over a couple of sports enthusiasts here. Let's see if we
can pick up any of their conversation:
Speedball. "Who's that limping down the quad?"
"Ch, she's one of those new speedball recruits. You know, speedball is that game some'
thing like soccer, only different, and do they ever 'sock her'!
"Eleven to eleven, they line up on the college green to kick a few shins, and take a few
spills, but the game is worth it. From the 'kickoff' to the hnal gun, twentyftwo girls put
out everything they have, to pass or kick that ball over the goal line to a score. Class com'
petition adds to the excitement, and makes the already too short season go fast and fur'
Hockey. "You can't kick-a bruised shinfbone is nothing. Why, Monday Dot hit a
hockey ball so hard it knocked out a whole mouthful of Betty's teeth!
"Speedball gets you toughened up for the hockey season. We're having interclass com'
petition in hockey now, and while the Juniors are ahead in the number of games played, it
looks as though the Sophs will run off with the championship. Captains Duncan, Ellingf
ton, Johanson, and Lyon have a grand time trying to keep their teams on their feet, in train'
ing, and properly shinguarded for the interclass games in the toughest sport of the year."
Therefsiq a bit of interruption coming from the Gymnasium. Sounds like a drum. We'll
try to pic it up.
Dance. Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Not the.African jungle, but the girls of
the natural dancing class practicing for the annual dance recital, given this year on May
18 Members of Crchesis honorary dance societyj, have worked all year on the recital
and programs for special occasions-the faculty tea, and intricate routines for the Zanja
Fiesta Tap Clog Interpretative, and Natural dancing each have their following, and
even the not so graceful manage to interpret some sort of an
idea by means of the dance.
While vve're waiting for all of the sports managers to get
ready for the broadcast, vve've picked up a few things of in'
terest in the sports World. Early in the fall a conversation
was overheard, or should we call it a monologue?:
"Whew! Am I ever tired! Cragg really gave us a work
out today, you'd think the season was half over instead of
just beginning! Wonder if I'll be able to hold out long
enough to make one of the allfstar teams. Made up my mind
last year that I was going to be either a Bear or an Indian fit
doesn't matter whichl, when this year's allfstar game rolled
around. I think I'll drop that Bible seminar so I can practice each after'
noon-maybe I'll make the class team anyhow!"
And here's a true experience from the Archery course:
"Hey, look out there!"
"I turned around in time to see an arrow pointed in my direction. No, I
don't have a vengeful enemy, it was merely that I had been too anxious to
see how good a shot I was, and had stepped out of line, directly into the
shooting range. I stepped back and
heard the twang of the last arrow as it
shot from the bow, and the plop into
the target. Seven of us marched to the
target, in turn pulling out our arrows,
calling off to Mrs. Plantico the score
of each hit. All arrows accounted for,
we walked back, put in our arrows,
straightened up, planted our feet firm'
ly, fitted an arrow to the strong bow,
drew it back, sighted, and let go."
Ah, here we have the sports mana'
gers, to tell us about activities of the
sports not already mentioned. First
we have Volleyball, Baseball, Tennis,
Swimming, Riding, and Minor Sports.
Volleyball. Ready! Service! The
ball goes whizzing across the net! Is
returned, and goes back again to the
tune of: "set it up"! "I have iti'!,
"smash it"! What is it? Une of the
Monday or Wednesday volleyball
games of the interclass t-ournament.
With games scheduled from April 4
to May 18, ample time was allowed
for each team to play every other
team twice before Marjorie Wilson's
sophomores emerged victorious.
Baseball. A few broken and splinf
tered bats, and a ripped ball or two
survived to tell the story of a class
struggle finally won by the juniors,
headed by that super upeggerw Johnny
Stevens, who hurled her team to the
Lois Rohrs, Betty Bissitt, Johnny
Stevens, and Betsy Newby, team cap'
tains, had their problems, but did a
mighty iine job of getting a large and
enthusiastic turnout for every game.
Tennis. Despite an uncooperative
weather man, women netsters have
shown an enthusiastic interest in tour'
' HS il
naments, and practice has been unbelievably faithful.
Several U. of R. women played in the Redlands Tennis Club matches
throughout the year with Citrus Belt communities. The Redlands City
tournament and the Colden Jubilee tournament held on University Courts,
featured U. of R. net stars. Mabel Cole, Betty Wincher, lane Hartzog,
Frances Lee Bussey, and Margaret Chase climaxed their racqueteering in
the stiff competition at Cjai, and Mabel Cole helped Darrel Hudlow really
put Redlands on the tennis map.
Swimming. This has been a swimming year for U. of R. coeds. With
Carnsey and Crider bringing home the points, Sokti Somaj won the inter'
organization meet in March. Fortyfyard freefstyle, backstroke, and breast'
stroke events were featuresg novelty races and the plunge for distance added
interest for those less inclined to be mermaids. The combined efforts of june
Carnsey, Marjorie Lyon, Wynona Ellington, Dorothy Terry and Alycemae
Nowlin in the crawl, breastfstroke, and backfstroke events gained us third
place in the Minor Division of the National Telegraphic Meet, in competif
tion with the best women splash artists of more than a hundred women's or
cofeducational colleges in the United States.
Riding. After practicing two afternoons a week for almost a whole
year, on how to mount, rein, canter, and gallop correctly, the equitation
class invited its best boyffriends on a threefhour moonlight ride, to top off
their year's activities. Riding has been one of the topfnotch sports this year,
and has been handled almost entirely by the W. A. A. riding manager, jean
Minor Sports. The Minor Sports tournament winds up the women's
sports season. Badminton, squash, and pingfpong are emphasized for their
carryfover and social value. They are open to all who are not taking active
part in the seasonal sports, giving everyone a chance to enjoy the friendship
and sportsmanship of athletic competition. This year hiking and bicycling
were added to the minor sports list, and many interesting trips were made.
Tabbed by many who ought to know as one of the best prospective Fresh'
man football teams in the history of the University, this year's yearling team
failed to come up to these high expectations and suffered three defeats and
was tied on one occasion. La Verne, Brawley C. and Black Foxe Milif
tary Academy crushed the Frosh team and Cal Tech tied them.
Although their record as a team' was far from impressive the Frosh eleven
revealed several prospects for next season's varsity football team. Jack Wil'
liams, diminutive quarterback, was the big ground gainer of the Bullpups
with his speedy bro-ken field running. Forrest "Andy" Anderson's ability
to toss passes and pack the ball should be an asset to the varsity next fall.
Herb Morrelli, guard, and Don Strickland, center, were the standouts on
the Redlands forward wall.
Men awarded their numerals were: J. Williams, B. Bartlett, J. Fawcett,
A. Ellerman, B. Covington, J. Eller, L. Jolley, C. Jolley, B. Anderson, E.

After a slow early season start the
University of Redlands Freshman
basketball team put on a winning
drive that earned them a tie with the
Whittier yearlings for the Frosh conf
ference casaba title. The Bullpups
played fourteen games, winning ten of

Al Ellerman fBurbank High casaba

pups, averaging better than 12 points
in every encounter. A1 Wincher, Jay Settle, Herb Morrelli, and Leon
Christensen, the other members of the starting quintet, will also be welcome
assets to next year's varsity. Other lettermen were: Bill Beard, Bill Mc'
Henry, Art Miner, john Fawcett, Jack Williams, Forrest Anderson, jesse
Eller, and Don Strickland.
A small squad of harriers greeted Coach Davies on the first day of pracf
tice. Although there were no dual meets for the freshmen, because of the
lack of a full team, Ray Heaton, mainstay of the frosh team, entered a num'
ber of cross country meets and usually was the first Redlands man to finish.
In the allfconference meet Heaton led the pack of freshmen to the tape and
established a new record of 14:55 flat. Macauley Ropp, the only other
Bullpup entered, finished well up in the money. These two men are prom'
ising varsity material for next year.
Cut of the class of '41 a championship team was developed. Although it
was a small squad in numbers, the brilliant individual performances over'
came this handicap. Defeating the Whittier, Cal Tech, and Pomona pea'
greeners by comfortable margins, the Bullpups pulled the San Diego meet
out of the fire in a thrilling relay finish, thus winning the meet and confer'
ence championship. In the AllfConference meet at Cccidental the Fresh'
men placed in nine events, two of which were new frosh records. These
were the two mile, made by Heaton in 1O:13.6 and the 880 fhalffmilej by
Fawcett in 2:O0.9. Others placing in the conference meet were: Gregory,
fourth in the high hurdles and third in low hurdles, Settle, second in high
hurdles, Fawcett, first in the quarter mile f44O yardj, Heaton, fourth in
the mile, Strickland, first in the shot, Krienke, third, Craven, fourth in the
javelin, Miner, third in pole vault. The Aztec babes were the only team to
outscore the Bullpups in this meet.
With this powerful squad coming up for varsity next year, the track
fans are greatly encouraged. The following are the freshmen numeral win'
ners and their events.
F. Anderson--100 yard, 220, mile relay.
F. Craven-100 yard, shot put, javelin, discus.
R. Heaton-Mile, two mile.
C. Krien-ke-Sh-ot put.
A. Miner-Broad jump, pole-vault, high jump, mile relay.
J. Settle-High hurdles, low hurdles, high jump.
J. Fawcett-440, 880 low hurdles, mile relay..
D. Strickland-Shot put, javelm, discus.
A. Gregory-High hurdles, low hurdles, mile relay.
The freshman baseball team got off to a good start by defeating the local
high school 95 . However, many of the players were inexperienced, and in
the later games the frosh did not fare so well. Bob Putnam, last year's out'
standing man, did a mighty fine job of smoothing out the rough spots in this
relatively green material. Cf course there were men who displayed true
baseball skill, and showed up particularly well in competition--for instance:

Al Ellerman, Herb Morrelli, George Wilkins, and Jesse Eller.
In the only conference game, the Bullpups lost to Cccidental, 12f9, prob'
ably because Morrelli was laid up with a broken leg, and Ellerman and
Beard were carried off the field because of game injuries.
The frosh lineup included Herb Morrelli, Bill Beard, Rudy Harkins, Jay
Settle, Al Wincher, Larry Snow, Bob Bartlett, George Wilkins, Al Ellerf
man, Jesse Eller, Leonard Jolley, Clayton Jolley, Edgar Putnam.
Frosh tennis featured as brilliant stars as did the neverfbeaten Varsity
team. Harry Ankeny led the frosh, and playing first singles, was a runner'
up in the conference. 'Bob Covington, second singles, was also a conference
runner up. Bill Klausner, Harold Josif, Tom Reed, and Donald Weeks did
their part to Win for the Bullpup tennis enthusiasts the conference title.

WITH THE EDITOR
You've read your La Letra-probably by the glance and skim method,
pausing here and there to notice 'a certain picture or to check over the arf
ticle you wrote to see if we left out the important points when we copy'
read it. After you've filled every available inch with autographs picked up
here and there, La Letra will be finished for you, to be tucked away on a
shelf with the rest of your college memories. ,
La Letra will be a memory-but a very different type of memory-to the
staff and those craftsmen who must do the "dirty work" that La Letra
might come off the presses in time for the Seniors to grab one on their way
home from four years of college.
As I sit here, trying to find words to express those snatches of thought I
feel buzzing around in the back of a wornfout thinking piece, I can hear the
monotonous push and pull, and roar of the press, and I know that Dick and
Harry, the pressmen, have finally 'lmadefreadyn another form-have moved
one cut an eighth of an inch to the right, and a certain line of type a six'
teenth of an inch to the left fpoints, picas, and ems to those who know bet'
terj, have padded a couple of cuts, and leaded some lines of type to make
them stretch over an allotted area. The ink has been worked and spread to
just the right consistency to start the presses rolling.
From another section of the shop comes the steady hum and click, click,
click, which means that Tom the linotypist is turning out the last galley of
type, correcting our spelling and grammar as he works, and rebelling against
setting small caps by inserting in a very sedate story a line to- the effect that
"some editors should be shot by moonlight, not wait for sunrise".
Away back in the shop there is a kafthump, kaflack, kafthump, kaflack.
Mr. Truesdail is running the folder. Above the voice of the print shop I
can hear a laugh, and something about women editors. I know that Val,
Charlie and 'Bill have come up against a peculiarity in layout, or inconsisf
tency between dummy page and page proof, and are trying to get a rise out
of me. I'll just ignore it. They'd merely laugh at my explanation, anyhow!
I seem to have started backward on this tour backstage - you've seen
how the "mechanics" operate-but there is a whole lot which must be done
before the machines can be fired up.
a..mi1..sn1.,i..L.4f.Q.mLrg,:..'l..Qina.:", if Q..-.1 i,.,1.Q",,,,,,' ' . . ig . -.-,

There is the idea or theme to be thought up and worked out in the
dummy layouts. Those layouts are an awful problem-just try to think up
a way to present the frats and sororities which is new and different, and
still within the limits of our smallfsized book! Ray Brennan and lack Gan'
nicott of the L. A. Engraving really came through on our layout problems,
so our bluefprints were drawn, and the work begun.
But plans don't look very good in print, and there came up that little
matter of covering the framework - photography. Bob Main had some
fancy ideas, and Bill Sutterlin some practical ones. Together, they gave us
those "unusual" shots, even if it did take endless hours in the dark room-
waiting, hoping, praying that the negatives would be good, and watching
each print in the developer until it was just the right degree of lights and
darks, then quick-dipit into the hypo to "fix" it before it gets too dark!
Pictures alone don't make an annual, so Virginia Hinckley worked up
importantfsounding notices for secretaries, presidents and chairmen of cam'
pus organizations and activities-to the effect that they had been chosen to
write up their particular club, event, or dormitory for La Letra. The results
were stupendous! Perhaps you've wondered how we got so many peppy
writefups, in so many different styles! Well, there's you answer!
There's probably not a soul on campus who doesn't know the part Mir'
iam Poling played in getting out La Letra. Is there anyone who wasn't
"haunted" by our assistant editor about making an appointment at Miller's
Studio for his Gap and Gown, junior Glass, Frat or Sorority picture, or just
a picture on general principles? If so, speak up, and we'll put you at the
head of the list for next year! Clvfiriam says the individuals were nothing
in comparison to getting people collected for group picturesj
We practically had to put a fire under Blanky to get the art work done,
but when she did come through, it was in a blaze of glory. Don't you agree
that those division plates are super? Gopy should be submitted typewritten,
so Gladys Gray took over the thankless job of ofhcial typist.
Lee Garren and Bob Bartlett pulled in the ads, and sold the books, Earle
Gray sewed them up, put a cover on them, wrapped them, put them on the
bus,-and here they are!

La Letra's new slant on familiar things was made possible by the large
number of copy writers, many of them not associated with the staff . There
is a certain amount of rewriting in this, as in every publication, but the main
ideas were submitted by the original authors. We have had to do surpris'
ingly little revising this year, and the editorial staff is more than grateful to
