Pubi;.slie l by M mm OF REDLAIDS ASSOCIATED STUDEm Redlands. California MIRIAM POLING, editor KESyETH LEWIS, manager With the passing of each year at the University OE Redlands, events and individuals leave their shadows as memories of the past and prophecies of the future. Each shadow, while remaining distinct in the minds oe those who create it. becomes inte ' gr. ' Kted in the complex pattern of college activity AND SO COMPLETES ANOTHER YEAR OF LIFE AT ReDLANDS. " This learned I from the shadow of a tree Which to and fro did sway against a wall. Our shadow ' selves — our influence — may fall Where we can never be. " How many times we would not have it so, When we have sinned, or erred, or been unkind. How many times we would not have it so, When, suddenly, our shadowselves, we find, Have made a burden heavier, a will less strong Because we knew the right, but did the wrong. Our rhadow ' selves — our influence — may lengthen Till they encompass both the land and sea And they may weaken, or may strengthen Men in far lands where we can never be. This is the prayer that we would humbly pray. Let thy pure light, dear Lord, shine on our way Then will our shadow-selves be like to Thee And prove a blessing, when they fall, where we can never be. — Mary Newton Keith ACADEMICS 1 1 4 Admin istration 1 7 Faculty 20 Students 27 ACTIVITY II 58 Service, Publications 61 FoRENsics, Music 72 HONORARIES 77 SPORTS III 84 Varsity 87 Frosh 106 Women 110 SOCIAL IV 1 1 8 Sororities.

He was a real sport, and always played the game of life in as clean a manner as his participation in athletics. His was a quiet manner, a spirit of co- operation, and a devotion to high moral standards. He impressed all his friends by the sincerity and genuine- ness of his every undertaking. His life was a challenge to higher ideals and accomplishments. Because of this his death is mourned as a real loss not only to his personal friends but also to the campus community. Del Flora May 11, 1940 Miss Moore has been more than a teacher, — she has been a friend. We shall all miss her voice and helping hand but her spirit will still be a beacon light to all who had the privi- lege of knowing her. She was an in- spiration to us and her memory will be a benediction. I cannot say, and will not say That she is dead, — she is just away. With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand. She has wandered into an unknown land. And left us dreaming how very fair It needs must be, since she lingers there. And you.— -oh you, who wildest yearn For the old-time step and glad return Think of her faring on, as dear In the love of there as the love of here. Think of her still as the same, I say. She is not dead, — she is just away. — J.»iMEs Whitcomb Riley Miss Caroline Moore May 22, 1940 E II R I jl % 1 ' ■v- ' ' ,.

For most of you seniors the shad- ows fallmg across these pages of La Letra have the flavor of sadness too — the kind that attends all Good-byes — but not the flavor of tragic loss, because life has already taught you that shadows are indicative not of dark- ness but of light. But more than that, be- cause one of Redlands ' aims is to provide her students with a Christian philosophy of life, you have had the opportunity to learn how one can renew strength in " the shadow of a rock within a weary land. " The U. of R. bids you Good-bye and y " " and Mrs. Anderson entertain students for an informal evening Dr. Elam J. Anderson knows sadness too — the kind that lies con- cealed in a mother ' s heart when she sends her sons, her daughters off to college. Your Alma Mater in sending you out into the world knows full well that new shadows will come to you. The way you accept them, the measure of refreshing strength that you gain from " the shadow of the Rock " will be the test of her confidence that the recordings m this book have not been in vam. Lovely shadows, poignant shadows, pro- phetic shadows " falling on you and me. " Elam J. Anderson. R D L A N D S 1 THE DEHS Herbert E. Marsh Mary Ncwtmi Keith While certain human beings on this planet are dissipating their energies in strife, we have been permitted another college year to enjoy the benefits of a plan which society has provided through the generous forethought of certain consecrated individuals in the hope that Christian democracy might become more and more perfect. This has placed us under a heavy obligation which if not discharged faithfully will bring danger of serious disaster for those who follow us. My prayer for the men and women who are going out from Redlands this year is that you may be able to find the way in which you should set your feet for the most effective service and that you shall never shrink or turn back because the going becomes hard at times. May we all strive to do our particular part to make Redlands a real shrine from which strength and sympathy may flow in such a blend as to bless humanity . . . Only thus shall her destiny be fulfilled. H. E. Marsh 18 BOUI) OF TRUST EH Term Expiring 1940: Mattison B.

Serving this year as president of your Stud ' ent Body has been a distinct privilege for me. However, student government is more than a person or group of persons — it is the group ex- pression of each student in his own student gov- ernment. Each outgoing group leaves, in a sense, a shadow or a reflection of their contribution to the student groups to follow and in return are the recipients of the shadows left by the ones gone before. I hope that this student adminis- tration has made a contribution in this shadow form which will add in some way to the pro- gressive trend in student government.

All members of the student body were privileged to attend these weekly Wednes ' day night meetings and contribute to the discussions. The various appointments made by the council have been very successful, and accurate records have been filed of all student enterprises for the year. Through Student Council efforts an Athletic Board of Control has been established. This board represents the students in such phases as buying equipment, giving letters, and approving the athletic budget. Among other student problems was the reorganization of regulations for the frosh bonfire in hopes that past difficulties would be avoided in future years. The Student Council enjoyed its work and hopes that the student body has been satis- factorily served. Standing: N. Steward, Voth, A. Wincher Seated; L. Bowersox, Dean Keith. D. Duncan, Mesker.

We have to decide the fairest and wisest things to do when violations against the student community occur — and if you don ' t think it ' 5 a job! " " Doesn ' t anything funny ever happen? " the copy editor queried hopefully. " Oh sure, some of the scrapes the kids get into make us laugh, but that ' s not the point. Everything that ' s brought before us is something that shouldn ' t have happened and we have got to figure out what to do so as to discourage any reoccurrence. If I do say so I think we ' ve done pretty well. We ' ve looked into every case thoroughly and the adminis- tration has backed us in every decision we ' ve made. " Of course we student oificers couldn ' t have managed if the student body hadn ' t stood behind us like they have. They ' ve been swell about it. " By this time even the copy editor had caught the spirit of enthusiasm and hoped that the Student Court would continue to function and flourish. R D N D S 1)0 111 COIIHIL Time: 6:40 Tuesday night.

This is only my second time up. P: Well, one more and you can discuss your wayward life with Dean Keith. What awful thing did you do this time? C: I ' m ashamed to admit it, but I was four minutes late Thursday night. Ghastly, isn ' t it? P: What can they do to you? C: Oh, they could give me as many room campuses as they want, week- night or week-end, or count it as a time up, or take away nights-out. They might even excuse me, but my story isn ' t good enough for that. P: Good old car trouble? C: Nope. P: Maybe you couldn ' t bear to leave before the end of the show? C: Not that either. P: Watch trouble? C: Right. I had a watch, but we forgot to look at it. P: Man, that ' s really feeble. Who all ' s on council now? C: Lucille Larkey is prexy, and Doris Wilbur is the secretary. The dorm representation is based on respective population. P: Whew! Hey, it ' s quarter to. Hadn ' t you better dash? C: Yeah man. So long. Puss. CURTAIN kins. L.

The dictionary says a Senior is a " student who is in his fourth or final year in college " . At first glance this definition seems perfectly acceptable, yet closer in- spection proves It to be not only deceiving but downright wrong. For example, there are many students who are in their fourth year at college and who are still Freshmen, Sophomores, or Juniors. Also, there are certain Freshmen whose first year will also be their final year, although they are not Seniors. Perhaps it would be best to approach the question from a negative standpoint and define the Senior in terms of what he isn ' t. Let it be understood that a Senior can be m anywhere from his fourth to sixteenth year in college, it may not be his final year, he is not as stupid as his pro- fessors imagine, nor as brilliant as he himself thinks. The college Senior finds himself faced with the harrowing experience of plunging from a sheltered scholastic existence of some fifteen years into a world of reality. Som.e students escape this by returning to their academic cloisters to pursue graduate work. A senior class is probably the most heterogeneous group in the world, but whatever his present position- the Senior is pri- marily concerned with the future. The class of MO has among its members many who intend to be teachers, lawyers, doctors — and then there are others who intend to make an honest living. During the first semester, the class held two parties, one at the American Legion Hall and another at Oak Glen Lodge. The class is proud of its accomplishments of the last four years and have only two regrets. First, that the class of ' 40 repeated last year ' s performance in the play tournament by t.Mdng second rather than first place as they did the two consecutive years before that. Second, that the coming year will see the class of ' 40 separated rather than acting together for itself and the university.

B-.ology R D A N D S 1 J II I I R An abundant supply of junior transfer students increased the size of the class of ' 41 by a large number this year. In taking them into the class, the first thing to think about was helping the adopted members get acquainted with the campus, its traditions, and its people. A campaign was launched by the president, Don Strickland, and each old member was given a " greenhorn " to take under his wing. The scheme was successful in making new students feel at home, and it is hoped that the plan will be carried on by future junior classes. Another attempt at taking care of the needs of the junior transfers was the formation of a social club, El Perro Toro. This took the place of fraternities for the men during the first semester, while the girls were admitted to the non-sorority girls ' clubs. The " wash " was the scene of the first class party, where the main features of the evening were weinies, songs around a campfire, and a -oint " party " with the seniors at Oak Glen Lodge. " Fluey " Craven took over the president ' s chair second semester, when a beach party and a luncheon for the Senior class were the two main activities planned. It was voted to con- centrate on paying the various bills of the clars rather than taking on further activities. Carlos Velazquez was the main entertainer of the class, and he and the treasurer were the features of the monthly meetings. Lett to right: B. Magner, Mc.Aulitfc, Becklcy, Craven, Bussert, Ellerman.

The customary methods of initiation proved popular (with the instigators) and successful. After proving their superiority by being victorious in the Soph- Frosh brawl, the Sophs turn their efforts to more dignified pursuits. The main event of the first semester was the class contribution to the play tournament in the form of Eugene CNeiFs tragedy, " Where the Cross Was Made. " A barn party in Yucaipa with dancing and games provided the social entertainment of the year. The Sophomores again displayed their dramatic talents by putting on a program at student body meeting. With Jimmy Edwards as master of ceremonies, the performance featured Don Hillman and his violin in a novel take ' off on th e latest popular songs of which he dedicated the first lines to various members of the audience. Dotty Cooke and the Hawaiian trio, with Ncal, Hal, and Chang did their part to make the program successful. The year ' s activities were climaxed by the lighting of the " R " on University Day, which was taken over by the men of the sophomore class. rt?- First Semester Ncal McKinlcy President Kathleen Jack Vice-president Betty Nicholson Secretary Don Hillman Treasurer Lcroy BjwerGO.x Representative Second Semester Don Hillman President Joe Day Vice-president Phyllis Hartranft Secretary Charles Ziilch Treasurer Leroy Bowersox Representative 52 fins Aden, Fred Alba, Mike Anderson, Mary Luu Anderson, Mary Atkins, Richard Baker, Donald Barns, Jack Bates, Ruth Baumann, Walter Bell, Paul Berger, Don Berry, Clive Blair, Richard Boles, Jean Bowen, Helen Bowersox, Le Roy Brinkley, Kenton Broadwater, Charles Brooks, Earlene Brown, Elwyn Buchanan, Dorothy Burrows, Percy Burrows, William Burson, Gene Carson, June Chang, Alvin Cheatham, Irene Clark, Keith Cole, Donald CoUey, John Coltrin, Gene Constantine, Robert Cook, Josephine Covey, Marion Craig, Jean Crawford, Betty Day, Josephine Dodge, Lucy Jeanne Douglass, Jeanne Doyal, Joe Dye, Dorothy Eacutt, James Eason, La Rue Edwards, James Edwards, Jerry Elkin s, Harold EUiott, Charles Flora, Del Folkins.

The next days were filled to the brim with exciting events, and especially will be remembered the Y. M. and the Y. W. retreats. With Earl Barnett and his able staffs ' help the class was organized, and we caught a glimpse of our unity and spirit at our first " get together " at the skating rink. The class put up pretty stiff competition in the Interclass Play Tournament, and it was ' The Wonder Hat " that brought them the winning placque. To top it off the Frosh won the football championship, which only proved to the Sorhs that the Frosh had some degree of talent anu ability after all. The brave members of the class produced a fine bundle of wood for the Whittier Rally Bonfire. The women furnished the food that memorable night, and although sleep and soap were needed for the smudgy, sweaty men, because of their efforts, a hot time was enjoyed by all! Thanks to the new second semester president, Newton Steward, and the rest of the gang, the students of the University of Redlands have never seen the big " R " burn so brightly. Keep it up Frosh, and let ' s walk in the footsteps of the classes before us, and do our best to constantly keep the " Spirit of Redlands " burning brightly! Standing: Perry, B.

SERVICE S 1 ' U R S Introducing the Spurs — unofficial hostesses, florists, interior decorators, and saleswomen of the University of Redlands. This year the activities of this national service organization have been numerous and varied. Perhaps the most conspicuous was that of beguiling un suspecting bystanders at football and basketball games into investing in candy, ice-cream or hot ' dogs. The Spurs also sold doughnuts and apples Thursday nights to the sleepy- heads in the dorms. The most outstanding contribution of the organization this year was a publication of all the university songs in the " R " Songs. " To be a Spur is one of the outstanding honors that come to a girl at the University of Redlands. It ' s work but so much fun ' Tup row: M. Anderson. Buchanan, Dodge, Frisius, Geddes, S. Gregory.

With this ideal as their motto, the Yeomen have served to promote the Redlands spirit in their fellow students. This group of sophomore men has stood ready to cheerfully aid the student body in every possible manner. You have doubt- less seen them officiating at the ballot boxes, raising the victory flag, deco- rating for football games, or ushering at some student function. A wide variety of tasks has seen them serving in numerous other posi- tions — sometimes for the student body, sometimes for a fellow-organi2,ation. But regardless of the assignment given them, the Yeomen under the direc- tion of Hal Ford have entered into that job with a spirit typical of our uni- versity. Members are selected on the basis of high scholastic standing together with the necessary qualities of helpfulness and enthusiasm for service. Throughout the past year these fellows have served the university by spon- soring these ideals of service. And most important of all they have worked to promote the student spirit — that quality which determines the success of our college activities. hird row: Chang, Ziilch, Hillman, Folkins, Green, Frink, Wilson.

A., and one of the faculty members got their heads together and parted again with the bright idea of interesting the Redlands student body in a missionary project. They went to work. Securing the approval of the president and the student council, they presented the idea to the student body. With nim- ble tongues, some of the best debaters in school verbally threw the plan on the ground and proceeded to jump on it. " It wouldn ' t work. " " Four hundred students couldn ' t raise the necessary funds. " " The money is needed at home. " For twenty minutes the idea was tossed back and forth in the student body meeting. Then came the vote! The project was ac- cepted by an overwhelming majority. A problem now arose. Who would be the Redlands representative? The student committee, after much thought on the matter, approached a Redlands graduate who, at that time, was working at the University of California. Mr. Andrus had not yet completed his work, but in spite of this, the Andruses accepted the responsibility of representing Redlands in Burma. For the past twelve years Dr. Andrus has held the chair of Economics at Judson College, while Mrs. Andrus has carried on social welfare work with the Indian immigrants. Home on furlough this year, the two repre- sentatives spoke before the student body, describing their v ' ork with the natives. Under the leadership of Wes Kewish, Sue Grider, and Lee Fridell, the student body raised twelve hundred dollars this year to carry on the Red- lands in Burma Project. R D A N D S Y. W. f. i I know where to find adventure! Come with me to an upstairs room in the Ad building on Friday morning at quarter to nine. Adventures around each curve of the winding road into the interior of old India . . . elephants, tigers, and brown-skinned people awaiting the new missionary doctor . . . here white hands are extended to meet the outstretched hands of the dusky people of Burma. We see yellowcolored Orientals selling pungent teak-wood chests decorated with carved symbols of an ancient world. Close we draw to Palestine and enter sacred Christian chambers where Mo- hammedan guards are stationed to keep order. In this same part of the world Mary Magdeline walked by herself to the sepulcher and found an empty tomb, but heard her Master ' s voice, " Peace on earth good will to men. " Below a blue glass window with the figure of Christ and his followers, the young and eager declare there should be no war. All these scenes we see through the eyes of Mrs. Andrus, Mrs. Hendershot, Mrs. Anderson, Dr. Mattingly, and Mrs. Vincent. The Y. W. C. A. programs also included a study of flower arrangements by Mrs. Walter Page, talks on va- cational possibilities, and types of summer work. And our last meeting at Syl- van park, where we gathered so informally was a grand preparation for vacation. Standing: Kerr, Joy, B. Ford, V. Brewster, Jack. Carter. M. Anderson. Seated: M.

A. centered its program of meetings and activities around the ideal of Christian fellowship with special emphasis upon scholarship, sportS ' manship, worship and creative living. Fellowship was enhanced and attendance increased at the Friday morning meetings by the occasional joint Y. M. and Y. W. meetings. Further variety was introduced by an exchange program with La Verne — the La Verne girls ' trio being an acceptable feature to bolster flagging interest. A " Y " secretary brimful of zeal and vision concerning China- a hand-is-quicker-than-the-eye ma- gician, and student discussions about student problems indicate the length and breadth and depth of the Friday morning thought. Launching out beyond the expected, the " Y ' s " combined efforts on two sun- rise services — one in connection with the Universal Day of Prayer, the other be- ing the Easter Sunrise service. In further keeping with its emphasis upon wor- ship the " Y " sponsored quiet hours in the chapel on Sunday mornings. The stomach-mind relation was put to good usage on the May barbecue and fellowship. It was through such activities, involving fun and thoughtfulness, that the Y. M. C. A. served to unite many fellows on the campus in purposive Christian fellowship.

It takes every member of the staff to draw to- gether the material which student life creates, and turn it into a permanent record. Busiest of the busy were photographers Newt and Bill who all but broke their necks attempting to meet the assignment s of the editor, not to mention long hours spent in the " darkroom " . Kay really got acquainted with the student body trying to persuade people to have their pictures taken. General odd jobs were taken care of by Joe and Margaret, who as assistant editors were among the privileged few to have a preview of the editor ' s dummy. Tiny used his high-pressure sales- manship to raise necessary finances for operations, along with his stooge, Howard Raffety. And Virginia, Jeanne, and Ralph were the official writer-uppers who turned their final manuscripts over to Jeanette to type. But the biggest time of the year for the staff was that day in June when their year ' s work was presented to the waiting; student body. Standing: Steward, Ayers, K. Lewi,-..

Most of the merriment of the staff was self ' directed and resulted from their own amateurish efforts to edit by enacting the more dramatic pieces. Under this treatment, even Hamlet would be hilarious. The affable editor wore a look of genuine injured innocence one afternoon on being sternly commanded by the equally agre eable faculty adviser, " Quiet, fool! " All were relieved to observe that she was merely audibly editing an embryonic masterpiece. This issue of the Siren was dedicated to Professor Benjamin Harrison who named and sponsored the Siren in its infancy. The siren floating over the dedication was not intended for a professorial portrait. Neal McKinley was named the most talented poet and awarded the $5 prize for his contribution, " What Lilting Song of Sirens " , which appears on the frontispiece. The contest was judged by Mrs. Bess Porter Adams, Dr. L. E. Nelson, and Mrs. Ruth Sargent. The novel Quadrangle Quatrain contest resulted in a flood of humorous masterpieces with Donald Dens ' more, Ruth Oliver, and Kathleen Jack coming out on top. Student contributions to Writers ' Week were expressed through the re ' lease of the Siren . Standing: Bccman, art advisor, McKinley, sales manager.

Ask Muriel Schulz— she edited it. If she can ' t convince you that the annual anthology of California college verse takes a mite of planning, you can refer to Miss Mattingly, the faculty advisor. And even literary gems need financial backing according to Mildred Swank, business manager. How did Muriel get herself in for all this honor? Well, we have some literary lights on the campus who belong to the Epsilon Alpha chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, which is on writing terms with the Intercollegiate Fellowship of Creative Arts headed by Mr. Borst of Fullerton J. C. And what ' s more impressive, Redlands is the first college to " edit First the Blade twice since its founding in 1928. The second volume was published here in 1929. Muriel divided some of her eye strain from scanning manuscripts with Lois Brasfield, Corrine Durham, Mary Dutton and Ruth Willis, fellow members of Sigma Tau Delta, and the entire English faculty. When they finished 820 manuscripts were m the waste- basket and eighty were in the book. This represents twenty-six colleges and fifty poets, with four contriubutions from Redlands.

Burness A debate squad — A national tournament — A Redlands victory — So runs the history of this year ' s forensics, but then one might confuse it with the record of other years, for this is not the first time the university has won national distinction. Coached by Professor E. R. Nichols, a squad of five students journeyed some 3000 miles to compete with 150 colleges at Knoxville, Tennessee. Here Redlands won two first place honors. The men ' s varsity team of Roskam and Burness were awarded the championship in men ' s de ' bate, while Carl was selected as the top extemp speaker in the country. Two graceful cups adorn the trophy case in the Hall of Letters in recognition of their success. In the women ' s division, Nancy and Mary K achieved the distinction of being the only Red ' lands women ' s team ever to survive the eilminations following the preliminary rounds by mak ' ing the quarter finals in women ' s debate. For this they received a diploma of excellency, recog- nizing them as one of the eight top teams. Eugene Sill, the fifth member of the squad, managed to hold the balance of power in the Model Youth Legislature and was appointed chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. Redlands is justly proud of their achievements. 72 M « S I f A niM ' ULI I ' II II u Through a dense, three-o ' clock-in-the-morning fog, the choir rolled along in a big new bus to the Easter service in Palm Springs. All available space was covered by sleeping forms who had to be roused in time to climb the hill behind Desert Inn before sunrise. As the sun tipped the mountain across the valley the trumpets blared and the choir burst forth in praise hymns. After the service we were fed an abundant breakfest at the inn. Professor Olds, our director, brought in his favorite girl friend for us all to meet — Shirley Temple. We have enjoyed other trips and concerts during the year- as well as participating in many services in our own chapel. One of these was the Christmas Vespers, at which we carried candles for the processional and recessional while singing familiar carols. At the close of the service the lights were turned off and the stained glass window was lit while we quietly sang " Silent Night " . George Wiedman is our president and Kenneth Hoffman has the job of librarian. Pro- fessor Olds is not only a director but also a composer and it has been fun singing some of his music. Part of the joy of being in the choir is singing under the leadership of his pep and enthusiasm. Fourth row: Barnett, Coleman, Stanley, H. E.

In close competition, the Redlands club was rated second only to Pomona, traditional rivals, in a field of six entries. Highlighting the year was the seven day Easter tour of Southern California high schools, junior colleges and churches. Beginning in the Los Angeles area, the club pro- ceeded down the coast to Long Beach and San Diego, and then inland to a final concert at the Desert Inn, Palm Springs. Featured on the trip were Arnold Ayllon ' s piano play- ing, Hugh Folkins at the ' cello, and the male quartet. The quartet, in addition to singing on the trip, filled some twenty other engagements this year in Redlands and surrounding communities. At the highly successful home concert, April 24 in Memorial Chapel, the club reached a new peak of performance for the benefit of Redlands students and townspeople. The last service of the year was rendered in connection with the Zanja Fiesta, " Mari- tana, ' ' for which the club furnished the men ' s voices in the chorus and most of the male soloists. The Men ' s Glee Club can look back on a busy and successful year, and we offer our hearty congratulations to Director-Professor Olds, to President Jacobsen, and to each member of the organization for such a record.

" Oh, they have a hockey game today, and can ' t come " , pipes up an alto. But in spite of such conflicts the Women ' s Glee Cluh has done right well by itself this year. They caroled like angels at the Christian Church in San Bernardino at Christmas time, and didn ' t flat once when they sang for the Corona High School assembly and the Redlands Community Sing. In spite of being a trifle jittery they jived beautifully — no, I mean harmonized — at the Paciiic Southwest Intercollegiate Glee Club Contest. And even though in the midst of finals they sang as if they had not a care in the world in the Zanja Fiesta production of " Maritana. " All in all they deserve a bouquet of orchids for their work, and we won ' t forget to give corsages to Lurene Boheim and Eleanor Vaughan for their vocal solos, and to Marian Hitchcock and her harp. Officers serving the musical maids were Mary Catherine Bowersox, president ' manager; Georgetta Thomas and Mary Lucia Snyder, secretaries; Elizabeth Livingston and Virginia Chambers, librarians; and Edith Schick, accompanist.

Every freshman, before he has traveled far across the campus, has been halted to stand trembling in his boots at the command " Button frosh " . And so the " R " Club members " strike " up an acquaintance with the incoming fresh ' man class. The members of the block " R " , who have all earned a letter in a varsity sport, are supposed to have exclusive " queening " rights on the campus. The meetings of the club, of which Ray Hackleman is president this year, are for the purpose of planning ways to enforce all the traditions of the university. Of course the big " R " on the mountain must be cleared off every year, so mem ' bers of the letterman club accompany the freshmen to perform the task. Of course it is unnecessary to say that the " R " Club members do most of the work. When it comes to finding the most important job of the " R " Club, and the one we all believe they handle best, it ' s that of defending the laurels of the University of Redlands in athletics, displaying the manner in which the members all won their maroon and gray sweaters. R D A N D S 1 F T II U L Redlands Bul ldogs found going a bit tough in their annual grid campaign this fall. Although the Ma ' roons finished in a tie tor third place in Southern California Conference standings, the end of the season found them with but three victories recorded. Two of these were by one pomt margins. " ' ■ Opening the season hopes were high for a successful year. With but a few men gone from the last year ' s team, things looked rosy for a conference championship, especially after the iirst game with Loyola. In that battle the Maroons were on the short end of a 6-0 score. The Lions had won 52-6 the previous meeting. Observers gave Redlands a moral victory in the Anderson, center B.

The Monte2,uma lads caught the Bull- dogs napping and pushed over a touch-down in the opening minutes of play and kept the upper hand from then on. The locals were on the San Diego goal line when the final gun sounded. Redlands showed potential greatness by toppling the Pomona Sagehen 19-9 in the annual Homecom- ing game. With but six minutes to play Redlands trailed 9-6. Two rapid fire touchdowns in those last thrilling minutes gave Redlands the game and the conference lead. Mercurio was at his best in this game, scoring one touchdown on the famous hidden ! A N D S " 1 FOOTBALL ball play and passing to Henry Romo for another tally. Jack Solomon, sophomore halfback, inter ' cepted a desperate last minute Sagehen pass and trotted over for the third Redlands score.

Bill Burrows converted to give Red ' lands a 13-6 lead. In the last minutes of play La Verne scored again on a " i yard pass and end run. They failed to convert as the gun sounded. Redlands ' hopes tor a conference title dimmed perceptibly after Occidental beat her 14-6. Playing inspired ball the Tigers were invincible against the Bulldogs ' razzle dazzle attack. Twice did Redlands get within striking distance of the Tiger goal line and twice did the Tiger fight back ferociously to hold. Norman gave Redlands supporters a chance to cheer after he scored on a line plunge in the second period. Oxy scored first on a pass. Later she went over after a Bulldog fumble on the five yard marker. In the last period she tallied a safety when Craven recovered a blocked kick behind his own goal line. San Jose, the nation ' s highest scoring team added more points to her record when she made mincemeat of Redlands, 52-6. The Maroons were helpless against the powerhouse Spartan outfit. Redlands points came as a result of a pass from Montgomery to Mercurio. Cal Teck, the supposed weak sister of the conference, came to life m the Rose Bowl and nearly dumped the Bulldogs. With six minutes to go the Engineers led 6-0. Alvin Chang R D N D S 1 set up a local score when he passed to Montgomery, who carried the ball to the nine yard line. From there " Burrhead ' " went over in three plunges. Montgomery passed to Craven in the end 2;one for a winning point. Ted McKinney, ace sopho- more guard, broke his leg in the open ' ing minutes of play.

Managers, Cologne, P. Leibcrg, Boweisi.x, and Green 92 STUDENT INTEREST IN ATHLETICS Very excellent work is being done by a committee, with John Fawcett as its chairman, to investigate the office and duties of trophy manager and to promote student body inter ' est in athletics. In a report to the student council the committee has enumerated several changes which should be made in the management of athletics. In the first place, according to the report, in place of trophy manager there should be a committee of five to handle the manager ' s duties as well as additional ones. The record book which the trophy manager keeps should contain only athletic records and should have more complete information. This body should take care of and keep up to date pictures in the gym, and have control of all athletic trophies. The trophy com- mittee would have charge of athletic banquets, as well as traditions aiding in developing and maintaining school spirit. The investigating committee also felt that there was a need for additional individual award to go to the most valuable player in each sport, and to all-conference men. Also the office will aid in athletic publicity tor the school. Changes were indicated for the student store with room being made for trophies there, as well as the athletic blanket, the " R " s with varsity and frosh records, and individual pic- tures of outstanding athletes. The investigating committee suggests an athletic board of control separate from the tro- phy committee, which, however is being investigated. Only suggestions are made that the board handle everything dealing directly with athletics, such as approval of those recom- mended by coaches for athletic awards, approval ot athletic schedules, determining types of regular awards, and distinction between major and minor awards.

Provost proved himself to be one of the classiest ball handlers in the conference, and he could also hit the basket for his share of the points. " Pete " came to Redlands last year from Long Beach J. C. where he was captain of his team. He held down a regular berth on last year ' s team and retained the position throughout this season. Jack White, like Provost, is very adept at hand- ling a basketball, and has himself contributed a considerable number of points to the Bulldog ' s cause.

The only three ' year letterman on the squad, Mervyn Voth came to Redlands as a freshman playing on the frosh team in that year, followed by three years of active varsity competition. On the injured list last season, Voth did not see a great deal of action. This year he played quite a bit at the guard spot, being a iine defensive player. Contrast in quantity more than quality is provided Flora, Chris and Chang R D A N D S 1 B U K HMIil L L Southern California Conference basketball competition ended practically as had been predicted by experts at the beginning of the season. Whittier College captured the crown, while the Redlands five took over the second place spot; their only defeats being two games at the hands of the Poets. The five men who started most of the games were re- turning lettermen Pierre Provost, forward; Jay Settle, forward; Al Ellerman, center; and Leon Christensen, guard. The other guard spot was taken by Mickey McLaughlin, Long Beach J. C. transfer. The Bulldogs opened the season by winning four practice games from Oakland Y., Hollywood Y., Fullerton J. C, and Long Beach J. C, and dropping two to Chapman College. In the opening game of the conference schedule Redlands had the misfortune of drawing the powerful Whittier team who outclassed the Maroons to win 47-32. Jay Settle, Bulldog for- ward, led the scoring with 12 points, while Pete Provost on the other wing accounted for 7 digits. First blood was drawn at Occidental in the second contest, where the Bulldogs were able to down the Tigers in the Oxy crackerbox gym. This is the first time in five years that Redlands has defeated Oxy on the Tiger ' s court. The game was a close one with the Redlands five coming from behind in the last minutes of play to nose out the Bengals 37-3 ' . Scoring was rather evenly divided among Settle, Provost, Ellerman, Christensen and White. The next evening saw the Caltech Engineers fall beneath the devastating at- tack of the Bulldog sharpshooters to the tune of 52-32. Chang topped local scorers with 13 points. Using most of the squad, the Redlands five swept over Pomona in the next game to wm 54-37. Christensen was high man for the Maroons with 16 points. Two more prac- tice games were added to the Maroon ' s string of victories as the Bulldogs squee2;ed out a tight 44-43 win over Pasadena Y. M. C. A., and swept over La Verne 71-30. The next conference game saw the Whittier Al Chang Poets annex the Southern Cahfornia Conference title by humbhng the Redlands five 40-26. Lee Woodward, all conference center for three years led the visitors ' attack. Al Ellerman and Chris Christensen were the lead ' ing Bulldog scorers with 6 and points respectively. Turning the tables the following evening, the Maroons walked over a much improved Cal ' tech team ringing up a 52 ' 33 count.

Redlands pulled away in the second period from a close 22-9 half-time score to cinch second place in the conference race. In the final game of the season the Bulldogs took on the Tigers from w Oxy, running not to score a lopsided 41-28 victory. Playing their l fijllk final game for Redlands, Pierre Provost, Mervyn Voth, and Jack White turned in stellar performances to wind up their college careers in a spectacular manner.

Pomona College, door mat ot the con- ference this year, was shut out in both ends of a double-header as the Bulldogs won 19-0 and 6-0. Moreland, Ellerman and Tommy Templeton handled the pitchinc assignment for Redlands, giving up a total of seven hits tor the two games. The Bulldogs wound up the season with two final games with Cal Tech. Moreland hurled the lirst to win 7-4. In the nightcap Al Ellerman won his own game when his hit brought m Herb Morrelli in an over- time conte t. header with the Poets. Thus at the climax of their four-game series, the Bulldogs and the Quakers were tied wath two games won and lost, the championship resting with the team that finished the season without a slip. Occidental was the victim of the next Ma- roon attack, losing a double-header to the Bulldogs 8-5 and 4-2. Hitting in the pinches gave Redlands their victories with Moreland fanning ten men without a walk in the opener, and Ellerman limiting the Tigers to four hits in the nightcap. Continuing their winning streak the Maroons knocked over a fight- ing Cal Tech team twice the fol- lowing week. The Engineers were held to three hits in each game, with Moreland fanning ten men in the opener, while Ellerman whifi ed six in the second game. To sweep the four-game series with Occidental, Redlands repeat- ed its early-season double-header victory, winning 8-2 and 11-3. The Maroons, behind the fine pitching of Nate Moreland, made enough runs in the first two innings of the opener to cinch the game. In the second game, Al Ellerman kept his lead in the pitching race, col- Eilerman de.ivers his screwball Flora gets a hunk of it R D A N D S 1 T R 1 C K Undoubtedly one of the greatest track teams in the history of Redlands — at least one that has taken as many conference victories as any could, was turned out this year by Coach E. R. Davies. This championship squad proudly possesses the con ' ference relay title, the dual meet championship, and the crown from the all-conference meet. Redlands entered the Southern California Conference Relay at Occidental on March 2, quite an unknown team. They were better known when they came home the victors. Mercurio was the star of this meet by leaping 6 feet 3 inches in the high jump. Pomona pressed the Bulldogs close, to start a feud that lasted throughout the track season. Scores of the Relays were: Pvedlands 14, Pomona 13, Oxy 13, Cal Tech 11, and Whittier 3 The following week Redlands easily took their lirst dual meet from Oxy 79- 2. Mercurio won the lov hurdles, Fawcett, Constantine, and Heaton swept the 880, and Heaton took the mile. Mercurio won the high jump, ' ' Shorty " Wilson and Gene Broadwater tied for first in the pole vault, with Al Norman and Wilson finishing first and second in the broad jump. Don Strickland was the only two-time winner, copping the shot-put and discus.

The lO-year-old broad jump mark of 23 feet, hung up by Bill Yount, was obliterated when Al Norman went out a distance of 23 feet and 4I 2 inches. Ray Heaton smashed the mile record of 4:32 set by Taylor in 1930 when he crossed the finish line in 4 minutes 30 seconds. Redlands was practically assured of the dual championship when they nosed out Pomona 68 1-3 to 62 2-3. Al Norman broke his own broad jump record, extending it to 23 feet 7 inches. The meet was won by unexpected points brought in by Mickey McLaughlin, Joe Doyal, Wynn Rogers, Bob Constantine, Bill Stadleman, Percy Burrows and Jay Settle. In the last dual meet of the season the Bulldogs became official dual meet champs by smoth ' ering Cal Tech 821 2 to 481 2. Mickey McLaughlin registered his first win in the 220, and took RED N D S 1 T R U K second in the 100. Henry Romo took a surprising first place in the javeHn, Don Strickland took two firsts, Mercurio took one first and tied for another, and John Fawcett ran the best race he had run all season to win his event. " Long John " Fawcett provided the biggest upset of the day in the All-Conference Meet, which fell to Redlands, by beating Pomona ' s Woody Williams in the 880 in the time of 1:56.3. Another spectacular feature of the meet was the new school record hung up by " Shorty " Wilson in the pole vault when he cleared the bar at 13 feet. Captain Bias Mercurio was the only two-event winner for Redlands, winning the low hurdles and tying tor first in the high jump. Al Norman and Wilson placed one-two in the broad jump, Ray Heaton took the mile, and Don Strickland won the shot-put. Scoring in the All-Conference Meet was Redlands 53 1-3, Pomona 4 1-3, Occidental 32 1-3, Cal Tech 20, and Whittier 18. John Fawcett was elected by his teammates to captain the 1941 track squad. This year ' s track letterm en are: Bias Mercurio (Captain), Don Strickland, Frank Craven, John Fawcett, Al Norman, Mickey McLaughlin, Gene Broadwater, Chuck Broadwater, Ray Heaton, Walter Opp, Wynn Rogers, Henry Romo, Bob Constantine, Bill Stadelman, Bill Bur- rows, Jay Settle, Joe Doyal, Austin Wilson. This year ' s cross-country team, while being one of the smallest squads in the history of the university, fin- ished in third place in the all-conference harrier meet. The race was run at Claremont over the tough Indian Hill course. Prior to the conference meet the Maroons held prac- tice meets with La Verne, Pomona, and Cal Tech, in which the Bulldogs showed considerable power for their si e. Pomona captured the conference crown with a low score of 43 points Cal Tech took second place with 47, while the Bulldo;7 team totaled 66 noints. Occi- dental and Whittier did not enter full teams in the meet. Ray Heaton won first place in the meet for Red- lands, covering the four mile course in 23:23. His win, however, was not enough to offset Pomona ' s well- balanced team, since the next Redlands man was far back in the running. Constantine, Pueschel- Speed, O ' Leary, and Roskam were the other runners coming in for Redlands. The Heaton boys, — Ray and Leroy. 102 ni I M II I H Occidental College ' s eleven year domination of the Southern California Conference swimming meet was climaxed this year as Cal Tech swept the conference race to finish 23 points in front of the Bengal team. Redlands finished in fourth place with 11 points. Swimming for the Bulldogs were Roy Hill, Bruce Jewell, Bill Klausner, Elbert Hoffman, and Jay Settle. Their 1 1 points were garnered by a third place in the 400 meter relay, a fourth in the medley relay, and a fifth place taken by Jewell in the diving. Pomona captured third place with 311 2 points, and Whittier was fifth with 4I 2 points. In winning second place Oxy had 49 digits. Bob Merrick paced the meet for Cal Tech by setting a new mark of 2 minutes 41.7 sec- onds in the 200 yd. breaststroke. The old record was 2 minutes 46.4 seconds. Another new record was hung up when Reed Trego, from Pomona, swam the 1 50 yard backstroke race in 1 minute 48.6 seconds, to eclipse the old mark of 1 minute 49 seconds made by Bay of Oxy in 1937. This conference meet was the only event of the season for the Redlands mermen, while other conference teams had considerable practice and competed in numerous dual meets and practice contests.

On their way to the title the Bulldogs won 34 matches while losing only two. Whittier, Pomona and Occidental were all defeated 9-0 while Cali ' fornia Institute of Technology furnished the most opposition as they fell before the Redlands onslaught 7-2. The varsity led up to its conference play with 22 matches against many of the better college and Junior college teams of Southern California and sc cured wins over such schools as Pasadena Junior College, Los Angeles City College, Pepperdine College and the Redlands Tennis Club. Other junior colleges which succumbed to the power of the Bulldogs were: Santa Ana, Glendale, Ventura, San Bernardino and Riverside. University of California at Los Angeles eked out a close win during this period. In the all-conference tournament held at Occidental May 17-18, the Bull- dogs again had the finalists in both singles and doubles. Bert Basten won the singles title by defeating Ralph Weaver, and teamed with Wynn Rogers to defeat Weaver and Gene Holbrook in three sets for the doubles crown. 104 P E 1 ' rhe oomph girls — Mablc Mikirk, Jeanette Rehorst. ind Laura Jean Merriam — are right in there with :he school spirit.

Since both teams were allowed only a four-game schedule, they could not play off for the crown. In the first practice game of the season the Bullpups tangled with the Poly Bears from Riverside High School, with the result being a scoreless tie. The Bears were not able to penetrate very deep into Redlands territory, while the frosh made one serious threat. In the second practice game for the frosh gridders, a C. C. C. team from Cucamonga was overpowered by the Bullpup eleven. Joe Ikeguchi and Don Gallup carried the brunt of the Redlands attack, when they consistently cracked the line for substantial gains. Doug Brown, John Hof fman, and Bob Campbell proved to be the key men on defense. In the line Austin Ellerman, Bob Bierschbach, Ed Sigers, Earl Hedlund, Al Bowman, and Russ Stephens were indispens- able both offensively and defensively. In the first conference tilt of the season, the frosh nosed out the Occidental team 8-6 at Oxy. Don Gallup scored the touchdown for the Bulldogs in the opening period, after a 60 yard drive. A blocked punt behind the Oxy goal line gave Redlands a safety for two more points. The orange and black scored their lone touchdown in the final minutes of play on a shore pass from Jim Rough to Jack Shannon, climaxed by a 40 yard run. Cal Tech fell before the Bullpups 25-14 in the only other conference game of the year. Bob Campbell was the star of the game, scoring two touchdowns, both on shovel passes. He ran 60 yards for the first time and 40 for the second score. John Hoffman and Austin Ellerman each made one touchdown on blocked kicks. A typical Frofh work-out. Man, gers Co o.

TRKK, mm rill TR .A ■■■ SA Frosh track and cross ' country this year dis- played two of the smallest teams in competition As a result, the track squad finished fourth in the all-conference meet, and the cross-country team took a third in the harrier meet. Making their first appearance at Occidental the Bullpups. with only three men, amassed 28 points in a track meet with Oxy and Whittier. Their efforts were not enough, however, to sur- pass the Tigers with 67 points and the Poets with 36. Five men were enough to win a dual meet from Whittier the following week by a 74 to 42 score. Each of these five participated in practically every event on the card, placing in every race but one. Al Swift captured 18 points, McGowan came through with 11, Don Densmore picked up 13, Heaton took the mile and two mile for 10 points, while Bill Ayer emerged with 7 points. Doug Brown, Austin Ellciman, Frank Swift, and Gallup accounted for the remaining points. After coming out on the wrong end of a 10 7 to 14 score against Cal Tech the Bullpups began preping for the conference meet. Pomona added the conference championsh p to her dual meet crown by totaling 691 ) points. Oxy ran up 50 points, Cal Tech 19, Redlands 18, and Whittier 71 2. Don Densmore took the 880 for Redlands sweeping the field by 7 " ) yards. Leroy Heaton swept the mile and two-mile jaunts, lapping opponents in both events. In winning, Pomona captured 7 out of 14 firsts, and placed in every event. In cross-country Leroy Heaton was the star of the conference, placing first in dual meets and in the conference meet.

R D A N D S 1 T O i I S Due to little or no experience on the part of its members, the freshmen tennis team got off to a slow start, but improved steadily as the season progressed. Coach Lynn Jones, who had produced six straight championship squads previously, scheduled many practice matches including most of the Citrus Belt high schools and the U. C. L. A. frosh, but was unable to make stars out of the few unseasoned players who came out. All the boys are to be commended for their hard work and good team spirit, and had they not been facing the best yearling squads the other schools have had for years, the outcome might have been different. Against the championship Caltech team on the local courts the score was Redlands 2, Tech 7. Pomona also came here and won a close match 5 to 4, and on the Oxy courts Redlands lost a tough match by the same score. Hugh Sheldon and Bob Douglass represented Redlands m the freshmen- J. C. division at Ojai, while all the team members participateed in the all- conference tournament which closed their season at Occidental May 1748. Bob Douglass and Bob Lawhead were in the singles, and the teams of Walt Rabenstein-Toshio Yatsushiro and Hugh Sheldon-Beverly Perry made up the doubles combinations.

L I The Women ' s Athletic Association concluded the season this year with a wiener bake out on the women ' s athletic field. Not even charred hot dogs and burned lingers could mar the spirits of those present. Under the leadership of Betty Bissitt, president; Margery Stevens, vice-presi- dent; Bernice Houston, secretary; and Peg Dudley, treasurer, the cabinet feels proud to review the organization ' s many accomplishments. The year started out with the annual all-star basketball game between the Indians and the Bears. For this a good part of the student body turned out. Redlands was host to more than one hundred women representing ten diiferent colleges, October 21, when the W. A. A. staged its more than successful Play- day. The first semester concluded with a party in the gym, featuring an inter- sorority and club swimming meet. Alice Carter and Deane Wolfson represented the university at the Women ' s Athletic Convention at Stanford University during spring vacation. This was accomplished only through the loyal cooperation of each W. A. A. member. But the most important contribution of the organization was the feeling of sportsmanship and fun which was maintained during intra-class games and tour- naments. RED A N D S 1 tin DAY Betty Bissett welcomes girls from seven different col- leges to a day of fun at Redlands Southern California coeds forgot all their cares and had a jolly good time of it on the Red- lands courts and fields October 21. The an- nual Play Day gives girls of this region an ex ' cvise to play away a whole day in friendly com ' petition at any number of favorite sports. Out- door girls from U. C. L. A., U. S. C, Pomona, Whittier, Occidental, San Diego, and Chap- man came to join the fun. With vacationland as the theme for the oc- casion, members of the W. A. A. planned and directed activities of the day. Upon arrival each girl was presented with an itinerary of her trip through Sportland, accompanied bv a tiny oil-cloth traveling bag. After a general assem- bly the vacationers set out for their various destinations, including rounds of basketball, volley ball, baseball, and hockey; and short stopovers at badminton, table tennis, swim- ming, riding, golt, and archery. A luncheon at Calitornia Hall hroufht the travelers together again, when they were enter- tained by Jim Laird and the Frosh trio Betty Bissitt, general chairman of the day, and her able assistants Peg Dudley, Deane Wolfson, Betty Bolton, Margery Stevcnc, and Martha Gerrish were " played out " ' ' at the end of the day but were well satisfied with its suc- cess as expressed in the hearty approval of all the travelers. Volleyball (above) and swimming (below) were two of the most popular sports in the day ' s program 1 i: BASKET BILL The basketball season this year was filled with exciting action under Deanne Wolfson as manager. Two full teams from each of the Frosh, Sophomore, and Junior classes turned out with one from the Senior class — each one determined to win the champion- ship. Interclass competition was keen with the Sophomore A teams headed by Phyllis Shields coming out on top. The seniors were second and the Junior A ' s were right behind them for third place. Captains for the seven teams were Wilma Kerr, Frosh A: Helen Mathez, Frosh B: Phyllis Shields. Sophomore A; Margaret Kidder, Sophomore B: Sue Grider, Junior A; Millie Hyde, Junior B; and Alice Carter took over for the seniors. Climaxing the season was the annual AU- Star game between the Indians and Bears, which was attended by a large representation of the student body. The Bears, headed by Alice Carter, were the easy victors against Peg Dudley ' s Indians. BASE B U L Coming out on top in every major sport of the year, the Sophomores proved their prowess by making baseball no exception. With Margaret Kidder as captain they bat- ted out a victory over the seniors under Mary Catherine Bowersox. Belying the theory that girls " just can ' t play baseball " the teams got out and showed them by exhibiting some fancy and classy ball playing. Kidder managed the baseball season.

Flossie Gray as mana ' ger scheduled competitive games which kept up the enthusiasm, which is usually lacking during the hot weather. With a new set of rules to learn, the girls rose to the occasion and held some exciting games, which were well attended by male audiences. S 11 I M M 1 i G Ten U. of R. students are qualified to save the lives of drowning people. These aquatic stars passed their senior life-saving require- ments under Miss Cragg ' s watchful eye. Th e three girls to achieve this distinction are Pat Bussert, Harriett Craven, and Dorothy Thomason. The pool is a very popular means of cool- ing, and during " hot spells " it is the favorite meeting place for a friendly game of water polo or a lazy swim. 1 14 T E I I I S Three girls played outstanding tennis this year and achieved the high honor of bein chosen as Redlands representatives at the Southern California Tennis Tournament in Ojai. These stars were Dotty Lea. Babs Nicholson, and Vera Goodpasture. The competition was the stiffest in the state, but the girls held their own and made a very good showing. The last of May the outstanding tennis players in the school participated in a tour- nament just for the fun of it. Francis Lee Bussy was in charge of the women ' s tennis team the first semester and Millie Hyde sec- ond semester. S P E E I) H I L L Speedball has the shortest season of all the major sports. Two teams are organized and fight it out for the championship in two bloodthirsty games. The teams this year were composed of the Frosh and Sophs in one team and the Juniors and Seniors in the other team. The Frosh-Soph team came out on top by a nice margin. Being a combination of socker, hockey, and football, speedball is one of the most strenuous sports, and makes the infirmary a busy place during the season. Dorothea Lea was in charge of the teams and managed to make speedball one of the most participated- in sports of the year. Vera Goodpasture, Babs Nicholson (above) and Dotty Lea (below) represented Redlands at the Ojai tennis tournament. R D A N D S 1 II ( k E Y Hockey was die scene of dose ctHnpecnkm this year.

ElEWS y A nUW CHI DELTi Established 1940 Did you know? Have you heard? Well, I was told — Fragmentary bu2;2es changed their tone on February 7 and became — Yes, there is a new sorority on campus! A sorority which welcomes girls of all nationalities and creeds in true democratic spirit. The Alpha Chi Deltas lost no time swinging into action. Margvierite Montapert as president took the lead under the banner of flame and royal blue. In no time at all they whipped up three grand songs and plunged into the social whirl holding their informal in March and their formal later in the spring in the gay setting of Padua Hills. With their unique purpose as a democratic society, the twelve members have created an organi2,ation which is distinctive from other sororities. Dewey Forrest Gordon Keetch A.

There can be no doubt about it with twentyseven identical spots dotting the campus every Tuesday morning. Activities of the year started with the annual fashion tea given for the women students. All that was missing in the mock wedding was the groom. An informal dance at the Y., flying snow and popcorn balls at Idyllwild, a glamorous evening at the Huntington Hotel, and a rush luncheon at Padua Hills were the highlights of social life. Mothers were honored at the annual garden tea in June, followed by the reunion with alums and a last get-together of the year in the sorority room in Bekins. Beardsley Gregory S. G. Jones Moore M.

The second sorority to be founded at Redlands, Alpha Theta Phi has flourished for twenty- nine years under her banner of turquoise blue and gold. On October 24 of this year the alums turned out to reminisce over their years of sorority life and greet the pledges at their annual birthday dinner. Socialites saw Thetas swing and sway at the Wilshire Bowl, later at the Redlands country club following a scavanger hunt, then entertaining rushees at the new Arrowhead Springs Hotel, with a final swish at a swanky dinner-dance at the Beverly- Wilshire. R D A N D S 1 ILNIi l lllll(l{ll Established 1927 Isn ' t seven a lucky number? Well, we were seven when in 1927 the Alpha Xi Omicron so- rority was founded on this campus. This year we celebrated our thirteenth birthday with eighteen active members. Our policy of Christian friendship and interest in literature and art, which drew the original members together, is a vital part of our relationship among our own num- ber and other people on the campus. When Melrose hall was made into a girls ' dormitory we decided to carr ' the idea a Uttle fur- ther and so moved our sorority room from Bekins to a room in Melrose basement. At the end of the year when our seniors leave we give them a traditional senior gift of a silver bracelet with the sororit ' crest and name engraved upon it. This suppHes the tie that binds us together even though we are no longer active members and are far away, reminding us of many happy hours of friendship and understanding such as is found nowhere else.

Its name includes no letters used by any other social organization of the university. This year ovw number is thirty-two, which is the largest member- ship in the history of the sorority. Almost any time when walking across the campus our whistle can be heard, and if you watch you may see a girl look around and wave to a sister across the quad. She answers the whistle and goes on her way happier because of the friendship expressed in that one gesture. R D A N D S 1 DELTil KArPl PSI Established 1910 Thirtysix members of Delta Kappa Psi look back upon the past year as one of the most valuable in their school life. And each of the thirty-six mourns over the loss of " Him " as Peg Dudley sadly relinquishes her part ownership of the well-known vehicle. Deltas throughout this year have played and worked together in real fun! Chicken dinners at Mentone Inn, hilarious pledge parties, a winter formal at Desert Inn, and another later at Arrowhead Springs, a mountain party, dancing at Mission Inn, a garden tea, rush parties, and perhaps even the weekly meetings, have brought the Deltas close together in a true bond of sisterhood.

Those years have witnessed Kappa Pi Zeta spread- ing her strong branches over Southern California. Her alumni chapters acknowledge her beliefs and reach for her goal. The major objectives of this sorority are to make ideal women of her members, to aid them in obtaining a well-rounded personality, and to provide suitable recrea- tion. The sorority is known by its " Blossom Time " a garden party given for the faculty and mem- bers of other Greek-letter organi2;ations each spring in Dr. Mattingly ' s garden. Friendship among her members, loyalty to her ideals, truth before all else, and 2,eal for the future have been the stepping-stones in the development of the Zetas.

We moved in on four of our obliging members, who have a suite, for our weekly Monday night meetings. They complained after every meeting that the place looked as if a cyclone, tornado, earthquake, and dust storm had invaded the place. So we de- cided to look for rooms down town. Finally this second semester we found suitable rooms at a suitable price and moved in. On our first party of the year we established a record which we hope will be met often.

The twenty-fourth year found the active chapter with thirtytwo brothers in school and 280 in the alumni chapter. The Kappa Sigs are perhaps best known on the campus by their annual sorority trio contest. It is an exciting student body meeting that determines who shall hold the treasured silver cup. Open house for the student body and an annual Rendezvous and banquet with alums are a few of the activities the frat is known for, not to mention the Kappa Sig ' ' Sunday " when the fellows all dress up on Wednesday.

R D A N D S 1 C S M I) P L I T A I " he Cosmopolitan Club, famous throughout the Pacific Southwest, has an organi2;ation on the campus of the University of Redlands which averages about seventyfive members a year. The club is unique here because its purpose is unique. Its ultimate aim — one which has been noticeably achieved during its years of existence — is to draw students of all the various nations together to present their problems and ideas to each other. Through this friendly association, they are better able to meet problems of similar nature when they face them alone in the world after college. The club, this year under the presidencies of Martha Gerrish and Alfred Norman, has been actively engaged in its work with a view to a better understanding between nations. Eugene Giedt, program chairman for both semesters, has presented a series of programs in different coun- tries with students representing the corresponding nationalities featured as speakers. The year began with an " Information Please " program in which every member of the club par- ticipated. Following this came " Music of Mexico " starring Carlos Velasquez, and his Mexican guests; a Japanese dinner arranged by Merian Kanatani and featuring Amilda Andrews as the speaker on " Japanese Marriage Customs " ; " Traveling Through Burma " with Sidney Bah Oh; " Scandinavia " with Gretha Press presiding; and finally a southern dinner with the negro repre ' sentatives taking the spotlight for the evening. Faculty homes provided meeting plac es. If the success of the club in the past has anything to do with the prediction of the future, its fame will spread farther and wider in the years to come.

And our livingroom is the gayest and friendliest of all. We ' re only a " brisk three minutes walk " from the campus and we eat cur meals at the dorm so we don ' t miss out on anything. Besides, we have Mrs. McAhren for our housemother and she can ' t be beat! We get around, too. You know our Bulldog with Sagehen feathers in his mouth won us sec- ond prize on Homecoming Day. At Christmas we all pitched in and tinseled up a tree which we sent along with a dinner to a needy family. ' Course we have to celebrate birthdays, and we ' ve got all the other dorms beat for romance — we even had an elopement not to mention nu- merous showers and other celebrations. The officers have also helped in the success of the house. For the first semester they includ- ed Edith Mae Gates, president; Eleanor Sands, vice-president: and Catherine Hickcox, secre- tary-treasurer.

You can ' t miss it — it ' s the largest dorm on campus — only one with a third floor. I live on third — thought I never would get used to that extra flight of stairs. Mrs. Tousey ' s family of 76 was headed first semester by Deane Wolfson and second by Lorna Watkins. Vera Moncrief, as assistant head resident, helps to usher in the dreamy-eyed young things who have been out on dates. Grossmont is a very active place — noisy too, according to Bekins and Fairmont. Well, It isn ' t exactly dull with people around sticking pins in the rising bell at mid- night, playing leapfrog and other forms of natural dancing in the halls, searching desperately for a fourth for bridge, waiting for the mailman, dancing to numerous pho.nographs, and last and most, just plain gabbing. I don ' t mean to imply that we don ' t study — we do, but definitely — between times! We Grossmont gals have the big advantage of living with the dining room. Our studying is accompanied before meals by tantalidng odors that float up from the kitchen, and after by the clatter of dishes. One of the most frequently occuring episodes is this: The telephone rings — there is no one at the desk — it rings dozens of times until several people can ' t stand it any longer — " Grossmont Hall — just a moment please " — the name echoes down the hall. Disappointed faces vanish into rooms. Foot- steps clatter on the stairs. " Hello ' ' Tonight ' ! ' Oh, I ' d love to! O. K., I ' ll be ready. Yes, I live in Grossmont. G ' bye! " RED A N D S 1 F A I R M I T Where did I live last year? Why, Fairmont ' of course. Any Fairmont fem can tell you It ' s the dorm. Maybe home was never like this, but it ' s a darn good substitute. We do practically anything . . . What ' s that? Who all lived there? Oh, I can ' t remember them all, but it was as congenial a bunch of girls as you ' re liable to find anywhere. That ' s another thing about Fairmont — people are friendly and you feel like you belong. see what I mean? Maybe if I can remember who the officers were it would give you an idea of the swell kids who lived there — besides me. Let ' s see, first Inez; Hurst, and then Marion Lucas were our presidents, and the secretary-treasurers were Marjorie Ludlow and Babs Nicholson . . . What did we do? Well, besides the usual messing around, spreads, parties, hen sessions, and window traffic, we staged our annual Christmas Party. The House of Neighborly Service received the gifts after we had given them a workout ... Is that all we did? I should say not. Why, we decorated the old hall up so well for Homecoming we raked in first prize. So we bought a subscription to Made- moiselle . . . What about Open House? Well, as I see it. Open House is merely an in- centive for cleaner and neater rooms, and personally I can ' t see . . . Who is our house- mother? Mrs. Easley. She is new this year, you know, and we ' re cra2,y about her. She did her best trying to keep us m hand, but you can ' t be successful all the time. For in- stance, take the time that . . . What ' s that? You think I ' d better quit? Well, okay, but you ' re missing a good story. 140 MELROSE In its new guise as a women ' s dormitory, Melrose attracted residents from each of the four classes. Still drawing mail intended for its former male inhabitants, this dormi- tory elicited frequent comment from masculine students and alumni — ' Tou ' d never know it was the same place " , " Not much like the good old days " , and " Who ' s in my room now? " This dormitory is characterized by a variety of activities which distinguish it from others — in degree if not in kind. Among these may be listed endless bridge sessions, ac- robatics on the front lawn, sleeping in the halls on mattresses dragged from rooms, rows of sun-bathers on the balconies, quantities of Dorothys, a creditable number of newly acquired fraternity pms (especially since the arrival of spring), and of course the mem- orable privilege of always eating with the boys in California Hall instead of only twice a week at exchange dinners. Music echoes from Melrose on all possible occasions, whenever " quiet hours " do not impose an enforced silence. The musical ability per capita here seems unusually high— among those gifted are several violinists, literally do2;ens of able pianists and singers, and two members of the Freshman Trio. Although most of the girls will be moving into Fairmont or Grossmont this fall, leav- ing Melrose for a new crop of initiates to the University, this dormitory will always re- tain a generous amount of affection and fond recollection on the part of its original and historical feminine inmates. 141 R D N D S ■| ML H il L L Cal Hall sure took a beatin ' this year. The only dorm on the campus with a touch of masculinity, the whole house was handed over to the frosh men. Shattered windows, splintered doors (repair of which burned up the room deposit like hot cakes), midnight radio serenades ( ' til Ma Parker ' s buzzer made static with the ether waves) — these all spelled an end to studying but the debut of a good time for the inmates. The only let-up came when the gals from Melrose added their tam- ing influence in the diningroom (!). Peak of the season was the Christmas party when the abstainers received a good pipe, prohibitionists got the real stuff, and the mamma boys got what was coming to them. I figure this is a good place to stop, but not without mentioning the ring-lead- ers of the season — Bob Campbell the first semester and Bob Douglass second semes- ter. 142 OIIERSITY HiLL These last few weeks mark the end of the first year of a dubious experiment in housing the success of which is still in question. Firm in the belief that the government ' s campaign for tenement clearance is too radical and too modern for Redlands, the University fur- nished its men students with the lore and tradition of the hallowed halls of the famous old Casa Loma Hotel, now dubbed University Hall. Added attractions were the large and spacious lobby, the bright new dining hall, the basement game room, a " brisk " ten minute walk, and the soothing rumble of ten-ton Diesel trucks outside the windows at all hours. Bright spot in the otherwise dark picture was the presence of Dr. and Mrs. Floyd C. Wilcox, who as head residents in their first experience of dormitory counseling, earned the respect and appreciation of U. Hall men. Through their guidance and earnest endeavor to cooperate, a mutual understanding was established which managed to retain a certain semblance of order and quiet in the hall. During the year, U. Hall was the scene of many dinners and banquets, fireside meetings of the various churches on Sunday nights, a garden party in October, and the open house in April, as well as the usual activities of water-fights, room-stacking, and other extra-cur- ricular projects. Bob " Moe " Anderson served as house president for the year, assisted by Roy Hill, vice-president; Jim Laird, secretary; Tiny Lewis, treasurer; and house council- men Lee Fridell, Sully Wohlheter, Merrill Hale, Bill Roskam, Neal McKinley, and Carl Burness. R D A N D S 1 HALE D 1 R Casa Loma became U. Hall to the social world at the faculty reception FACULTY RECEPTION The first important event on the calendar took place in the huge lobby of our newly- acquired University Hall as it was officially presented to the public on the occasion of the Faculty Reception, September 2 " . The fellows were not too certain at first how they were going to like this invasion of their domain but the prospect of sherbet soon dispersed any doubts. Rain had necessitated the change of location of this afl air which IS customarily held in the patio of the Hall of Letters. But this did not deter many townspeople and friends of the University ' from splashing about in the downpour so that they too could be welcomed as guests along with the student and faculty members. Spurs and Yoemen received their first taste of their new- duties as they balanced trays of punch-filled glasses, tried to refrain from eating too many of the cookies which they were passing, and spotted unserved guests. Roy, Delphine, and Prexy greet- ing the latest arrivals A.D.W. TEA — because un- packing trunks and just gener- ally getting " settled " does not always present a girl at her best, the dormitory women gave a tea on October 8, so the new head residents could receive a less hap- hazard impression of the Redlands coeds. They were received in Grossmont livingroom by Lucille Larkey, president, who introduced them to Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Gra- ham, Mrs. Easley, and Mrs. Van Wye. Refreshments were served by the officers of each dormitory from the tea table presided over by Mrs. Keith, Mrs. Tousey, Miss Higgins and Mrs. Parker. Dorm girls attempt to give a dignified first impression to the new head residents 144 COLLEGE MIX— With the Currier Gymnasium as the main corral, a stampede of cowboys and their gals soon started the annual College Mix on a rampage. Carl Burness, roped in to be Master of Ceremonies, intro- duced a " rip-snorting " program. Ranch-hand music, tricycle stal- lions and bucking scooters, rope tricks and a staged hold-up with In- dians and everything, all came out of the saddle bags. Walt Wohlheter thrilled the crowd with his daring ride (on a bi- cycle) through a brick wall. But the most breathtaking spectacle took place when Nelson Price plunged to the floor from the stupendous height of six feet. The Gamma Nude Colony was dressed up with the prize for the most original costume, but it was the Kappa Sigs who stole the show and won the traditional laur- els with their new " egg- drop " " booth. Cowhands Jimmy Ed before the judge BeiOw: Hopeiul conie Eantb lane up wards and Mary Frances Gilliam were the instigators of the Rodeo. The shining hght of the frosh class. LANTERN PARADE — There is one evening when the frosh femmes really do " shine. " This is on the night of the traditional Lantern Parade when the dorms are serenaded by these newest campus gals. No one knows whether the lanterns came first and the songs were second, or the lanterns were added so that by their light the girls could read the words. After making their rounds of the campus they sang once again their " Freshman Girls Pledge ' " on the Ad steps in the form of a glowing " R " , and c impleted the performance by singing the " Alma Mater. " " R .E D A N D S 1 PAJAMARINO— Led by the band, and dressed in such things as fig leaves and grandpa ' s red flannels, besides the prosaic pajamas — the men of the U. of R. campus wound their way craz- ily through town — ' twas the annual Pajamarino! A small riot — really a rally — was staged at the main intersection, and the pajamarino ' ites paraded to the Redlands Bowl for awarding of prizes and drawings for premiums from the town merchants. The " King and Crown P rince " of yell leaders reigned over the pep rally. Pri:e p. j. " s arc H.

' s. HOMECOMING — Three hundred strong, our alumni descended upon the campus on Homecom- ing Day, October 14, to make campus memories come alive. In honor of the occasion, the Bulldogs beat the Sagehens m the big game at 2:30. Between the halves, our band and the new drill team put on a grand marching display under the whirling batons of the strutting majorettes. To Fairmont Hall was awarded first prize for dormitory decorations for their maroon and gray ' ' Mighty Bulldog " . Dressed as a chef, holding a fork in one hand and chewing a mouthful of feathers, he stood over a stone fire pit on which poor Cecil Sagehen lay roasting on a gridiron, with his feathers strewing the ground. Alumni, students, and professors had a rousing get-together in the Currier " Diningroom " at 5:30. Under the direction of Johnny Raitf ' 39, the rafters rang with victory songs. A little less boisterous but just as enthusiastic were the numbers giv- en by the Men ' s Glee Club. Roy Mesker and Roy McCall added the forensic touch to the evening. Dclphme, Roy, Roy McCall, Herb Powell, Prcs.c ' cnt An- derson, and Coach Cushman chat between councs at the Alumni banquet. 146 PAN HELLENIC TEA — Tinkling teaspoons, hundreds of dainty sandwiches, and a myriad of swishing gowns set the Hall of Letters patio aglow on October 13, when the an- nual Pan Hellenic tea delight- ed the neophytes of the cam- pus. Music in the teacups ac- companied the songs rendered by Barbara White, Eleanor Vaughn, and Barbara Wilder, Lilting melodies on the ac- cordion were provided by Vir- ginia Ogle, while Margery Brewster soothed the guests with strains from her violin. Tasteful simplicity was featured on the invitations designed by Delta Kappa Psi, and the Thetas scurried around adorning the setting with unique decorations. " Table service with a smile " became the motto of the Kappa Pi Zeta sorority, while the Betas were the talent scouts for entertainment. Alpha Sigma Pi struggled successfully in curbing the appetites with luscious refreshments. Patronesses of the various sororities greeted and served the guests. Sorority sisters show how its done at their annual tea for campus co eds The " petite ' " French star ot Metropolitan Opera fame ratisfies the demands (■! Redlands autograph hounds r LILY PONS! The mere idea that the celebrated Metropolitan coloratura was to sing in Red- lands on November 10 sent thrills of delight through student body and townsfolk alike. And the tiny star of five feet one in her old-fashioned pink dress, rose and net-trimmed hat, and nose- gay with ribbons surpassed the highest antici- pations. Singing her way through Canada and down the coast, and fresh from " Rigoletto, " when she appeared with Lawrence Tibbet be- fore a capacity audience. Miss Pons appeared in our chapel before another full house. Enthusiastically received highlights of the program were the aria " Caro Nome " from " Rigoletto, " and two songs, " Pretty Mocking Bird " and " Villanelle, " with flute obbligato by Ary Van Leeuwen, famed flutist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. In acknowl- edgment of the wholehearted applause. Miss Pons gav; several encores. It was a well-pleased audience that left the chapel that night.

" We rather suspect that Hugh Moshier caught up on all his grudges and has some to go on, fo: " he was as typical a Scrooge as Dickens could have wished for. But we do knov; that Hugh and the fifty stu- dents and townsfolk who supported him so well really put across the Christmas spirit. Not just a little bit either for they gave performances on the evenings of the seventh and the ninth besides a chil- dren ' s matinee. A great big wreath of holly should go to the stage crew who really went to town on the sets for the eighteen scenes. If you noticed an air of traditit)n aboLit the performance, you were right for it was given in honor of Dr. Herbert E.

" EUGENE LIST, now only 20 years old and already rated with Hoffman and Rachmaninoff among the five best pianists in the country, performed December 8 as second on our artist series. At present he is soloist with the New York Philhar- monic Symphony Orchestra. His fingers blurred as they raced over the keyboard in the brilliant technique of a highly classical program. The New York Post writes of his style: " This young pianist is already a first-rate artist, yet there is that in his playing which guaran- tees continued and constant development . . . He plays with a kind of rhythm, which may not be acquired, and his control of the piano might be the envy of the seasoned executants. " The students wished, however, that he had played more pieces to the balcony. Eugene Lij t, popular young pianist 111 the concert series. 150 The Asilomar " gang " en route. Thr silhouettes are Nenl and Chany. A S I L O M A R— Wind- swept Montcixy pines, the booming surf, starlight and moonlight, sunshine and sand dunes and camphres; this is Asilomar. It is here, once a year during Christmas vacation, that over six hundred Pacific coast college students congregate in a Y. M.-Y. W. C. A. convention to share their ambitions, inspirations and friendship with kindred young people. Seventeen Redlands students were privileged to attend as representatives of the university. The dormitories are log cab- ins set in among the sand dunes and pines. The dining hall is capable of seating over six hundred people at one time. Merrill hall boasts a stage for plays or other entertain- ments and a dance floor for the New Year ' s ball. Frolics in the surf, horseback rides alon the shore, tennis matches and hiking are but a few of the recreations in which one may par- ticipate. There is always inter-college competi- tion in athletic activities. Asilomar i: not just a playground; it is a winter wonderland, a school with no papers to write, no examinations and no grades. The faculty consists of some of the most interesting and learned individuals in the west. Asilomar is an opportunity knocking at your educational and inspirational door and will leave with you happy memories and a realisation that you have been bi ought into closer con- tact with yourself, with your fellowman, and with God. R D L A N D S I Koo was rated uiic ul the three best chapel speakers of the year DR. T. Z. KOO, outstanding Chinese scholar, spoke at the University Chapel January 2 ' . Leaving a career as a prominent railway engineer, he chose to become secretary of the Y. M. C. A. in China. De- scribing the pitiful conditions in his homeland, the speaker told of the wonderful work accomplished there through the missionary service. A student of St. John ' s University at Shanghai, and at Oxford and Tambaram, Dr. Koo has been as- sociated with the World Student Christian Federa- tion since 1937 and is associate secretary of the World Federation of Churches. Another well known speaker, Charles A. Wells, delivered a series of four Chapel speeches during No- vember. Wells is prominent as a world traveler, car- toonist and European correspondent of news. For thirteen years he has been gathering what is now the largest collection of propaganda in Amer- ica, of which some posters are valued at $2,000. Illustrating his talks with cartoon sketches. Wells summarized the series with: " The Cross still stands above the conflict of a changing world . . War planes dive through it but cannot mar it . . . shrapnel cannot shatter it and the bombs of the revolution but reveal its towering testimony to man ' s hunger for kinship with God. " These two chapel guests along with Dr. Earl Cranston ' s current events and the Richfield Re- porters were chosen by the University students, in a recent Chapel poll, as the outstanding speak- ers of the year. MILDRED DILLING, harpist, was the unusual artist of our third concert, presented on January 26. Her pro- gram was delightfully informal, including several pop- ular and descriptive numbers among which were " Liebestraume " and ' ' The Blue Danube. " She added much interest to her program by briefly sketching sev- eral of her pieces and telling something about the harp — its history, old customs connected with it, its music, and the parts of the instrument itself. Strikingly picturesque was the efi ect of the spotlight which made her golden harp and hair glow as reflected light, contrasting strongly with the large black shadow of artist and instrument thrown on the chapel wall be- hind. Margot Jean, distinguished French " cellist, was the second artist on the program, presenting a sonata by Sammartini among other pieces. " The foremost woman harpist " " was enthusiasti- cally received by her Redlands audience. 152 Radio and opera star sings ror mii--ic e nthu?ia ;t ; DONALD DICKSON, the " voice " of the Chase and Sanborn radio hour, became to the chapel full of Redlands students and resi- dents, Donald Dickson, handsome concert personality in the concluding performance of the artist series February 13. In addition to a rich voice of natural beauty and warmth, with perfectly trained tone and technique, Dickson sang full mean- ing into his words, which gave the songs a great depth of significance. His richness of tone was as apparent in his softest notes as in his most powerful ones. Dickson ' s program opened with a group of religious numbers by Handel and Bach, followed by groups of German, Russian, and popular American songs, all well-punctuated with encores. Donald Dickson began his career by winning an Atwater Kent Audition prize. The Metro- politan Opera Association engaged him for its 1937 spring season, and in addition to this he was given a contract by the National Broadcasting Company. He is now on the Chase and Sanborn hour. Dickson ' s handsome accompanist, William Hughes, was heartily received as soloist when he played three Debussy numbers and two encores. WOMAN ' S FEDERATION BANQUET — No doubt there were many lonesome boyfriends in town on the night of Tuesday, March 26, when all the U. of R. women dressed in formals to go down to the annual Woman ' s Federation Banquet at the Y. W. C. A. recreation building. Decorations were appropriately carried out m keeping with the theme of " Hawaii, " with grass huts and leis strewn down the table centers and palm trees lining the walls. A Hawaiian program was presented, including a poem by Mrs. Joseph Bac- cus, readings by Yula At- kinson from John Bland- ing ' s poems, numbers by the men ' s Hawaiian trio — Al Chang, Neal McKin- ley, and Hal Ford — and the women ' s trio, Barbara Jean Duncan, Valerie Phillip, and Dorothy Cook. Of course the climax of the evening was the spring fashion show, planned by Margaret McAulitfe and modeled by several univer- sity girls. University women enjoy a so- cial time at the annual federa- tion banquet. R D N D S 1 Above: Scene from a Russian tragedy. Left: Chick Bilyeu turns comedian. Lower: A romantic farce. COLLEGE PLAYS— One of the high points of the drama de- partment this year was C. Ger ' aid Hasty ' s presentation o f an evening of onc ' act plays on March 28 in the high school auditorium. The members of the newly insti- tuted speech seminar gave an ex- cellent performance of " Stand and Deliver, " a swash buckling ro- mance of merry old England; " Highness, " a tragedy of the Rus- sian revolution: and " Romance is a Racket, " a hilarious farce that left the audience in doubt as to whether racket meant gyp, a game or noise. Charles Bilyeu, Shirley Hubbard, John Watson, and Vir- ginia Chambers turned in star per- formances.

ROOSEVELT— The ' Tirst Lady s " coming tL) Redlands was awaited by students and townspeople whose enthusiasm was shown by a capacity crowd m Memorial Chapel on April 3. The only regret was that many were not privileged to realize their anticipations be- cause the event was scheduled during spring vacation. President Anderson introduced the speaker as the " most energetic first lady in our history. " Dressed in a black velvet evening dress with a simple corsage of gardenias, Mrs. Roose velt spoke informally and in a conversational man- ner. She was gracious and charming, and those few who came to criticize went away convinced that she was indeed an unusual per- sonality, one whose spirit was captivating and who deserved a great deal of admiration and respect. The audience broke in upon her speech time after time to applaud her remarks. At the close of her address on the " Indi- vidual and His Community, " she consented tc answer questions from the audience. " What do you think of the communistic tendencies among college students? " was one of the ques- tions that challenged her. She replied that she was neither disturbed nor alarmed, and added that very often in college when students are studying all forms of government, communism fascinates them, but after they get out into the busi- ness or professional world their enthusiasm becomes modified and they turn out to be democratic and useful citizens. SUNRISE SERVI CE — The notes of a trumpet at 7:30 Sunday morning February 18 called a group of students to the Greek theater to observe the Universal Day of Prayer. With music from a girl ' s trio and men ' s quartet and an address by Eugene Sill, the Y. M. and Y. W. sponsored the service which was being observed in twenty-five for- eign countries. The purpose was to bring together in prayer all people of the world, especially warring nations of Europe and Asia. Easter Sunday also saw a sunrise service sponsored by this group in cooperation with the inter-church youth council. This was the first time such a service had been held at the university, and it was well attended by stu- dents and townspeople. Y. M.-Y. W. service in the Greek theater.

' ' - " UNIVERSITY DAY— The campus buz::ed with activity from daybreak until the last house-mother locked the last door Saturday, April 13, as the university and 650 prospective stu ' dents celebrated the annual Univer- sity Day. Activities of the day started with registration, followed by a tour of the campus with Spurs and Yeomen di ' recting guests and giving them the " inside dope " . At a general assembly in the Chapel, Professor Spelman im- pressed the guests with the wonders of our organ, and they were wel ' comed by Pete Provost, general chair- man of the day, Roy Mesker, crnon Johnson of the Chamber ot Com- merce, and President Anderson. An address on " The Individual in the Making " was presented by personnel director Dr. Wilcox. After giving the campus the " once- over " , all attention was turned to Sylvan Park, where a picnic lunch was served to the hungry mob. Swim- ming, exhibition tennis matches, and a baseball victory over Occidental proved popular activities for the after- noon. But the climax came when Laird, Burness, Wohlheter, Jensen, and Jeffrey caused a minor riot when ire they debated the question, " Resolved: That woman ' s place is in the home— her home. " After a banquet in " Currier Din- ingroom " , the guests received their biggest treat of the day at student body meeting. With the Ad steps and bleachers on either side tilled, a pro- gram of student talent started the ev- ening ' s entertainment, which was cli- maxed by the lighting of the " R " . A clear atmosphere made the sight more beautiful and impressive than ever be- fore, and the group joined in singing the Alma Mater, with the Chapel ful- ly illuminated in the fore ground. The final event of the day was a play at the high school auditorium presented by the university speech de- partment. Mrs. Joseph Baccus direct- ed the " Daughters of Atreus " , a mod- ernized Greek drama. Excitement in the form of several gory murders was provided by Doris Honberger, the leading lady. Other main characters were played by Betty Hess and Patsy Hubbard.

FOUNDER ' S DAY — The faculty donned their dignified robes, hoods, and mortar boards and occupied the center of the stage at the annual Founder ' s Day program April 17. Led by the university chorus in a processsional down the aisle of the chapel, they proceeded to the platform while the choir sang several numbers. The program featured Professor S. Guy Jones in an amusing account of " My First Day at Redlands. " He is one of the few at Redlands today who was present at the founding of the university, and has experienced all the ups and downs in the growth of the institution. President Anderson introduced Dr. Walter F. De.xter, director of education for the state of California, who was the speaker of the morning. Following his address the facult ' and chorus again formed the recessional, and so ended the celebration of Redlands ' thirty-first birthday. R D A N D S 1 STUDENT PEACE STRIKE— As the world plunged madly into World War II, university students began to express their demands for a peaceful America. A small group of students organized a volunteer class first semester to study problems of a creative, enduring peace. These people studied a regular text book and did special research without seeking credits. As the Youth Committee Against War they presented programs before many town groups and had several very interestino experiences. Many Redlands students have been active during their summer vacation in pro- jects under the American Friends Service Committee. Evelyn Solomon and Welty Kuhns were in the 1938 Work Camp at Los Angeles; Harold Josif and Donald Weeks lived in the 1939 San Pedro Work Camp while Virginia Brewster was working in the Student Peace Service at Eureka, California. Three peace demonstrations of special significance have been held on our campus during the year 1939-40. A chapel program was sponsored by the Y. M. and Y. W. on November 10 to commemorate Armistice Day. We joined with col- leges across the United States to participate in a Student Peace Strike on April 19. The university was honored in being host to an Intercollegiate Peace Conference on April 27. After a worthwhile day of panels and round tables, the evening was climaxed by Dr. Carl Sumner Knopf ' s talk on " Cool Heads and Warm Hearts. " It is to be hoped that the year 1940-41 will again see the university as an agent for peace rather than a recruiting center. Harhi ' in, Sini--, ' Riow trr.

" ZANJA FIESTA — Because the lovely gypsy girl, Maritana, made the mistake of falling for a handsome nobleman who squan- dered all his time and money, she created in- teresting material for the Zanja Fiesta show June 8. The colorful Spanish operetta with its catchy tunes, dances, and dialogue cen- tered around Maritana (Eleanor Vaughan) and Don Caesar (Bias Mercurio). The handsome nobleman forgot his man- ners at a dramatic point and drew his sword on Nunzio Crisci, after which the hangman was to reward him for his deed. But Caesar ' s identity was re- vealed and the two lovers were brought together in a thrilling tinale. Supporting the cast was a chorus composed of the Women ' s and Men ' s Glee Clubs, and the orchestra. The production was directed by Professor Hasty. With alumni and friends gathered in the Greek theater for the occasion, the Fiesta was a fitting climax to the year ' s activities. R D A N D S 1 ABOUT THE CAMPUS 1. Did you get yours? 2.
