IvIEYER,I34 THE GROWTH of a college can well be outlined by a description of its physical changes. During the years of Dr. Omwake's presidency, Ursinus' physical progress has been rapid. Long the site of educational endeavors, our campus was first the home of Toddis School lestablished 18323, a private institution which served the local community, and then of Freland Seminary H848-681. The seminary buildings are now part of the College known as Freeland and Stine Halls. Twenty years ago the campus presented an entirely different aspect. Although the present drive behind the Science Building formed the western boundary even then, it extended eastward only to a driveway just beyond Bomberger Hall. At this time only Bomberger, Freeland, Stine, Derr, and Olevian Halls graced the campus. Ulevian Hall, a dormitory for women, and still in the memory of the present college generation, occupied the site of the Science Building. Two tennis courts and an old barn used for storage stood directly behind Stine Hall. Bomberger Hall contained all the classrooms and offices as well as the library, which took up the space now used by rooms 'c6'i and H7". The general shelves occupied room 27" while the other was the reference room, although reading tables cluttered both sections. A professorls conference room now encloses the space then occupied by the librarian's desk. The gymnasium, although occupying the present site, was not the same building. It was a long narrow structure entirely separated from the dressing room, a small building nearby. The Thompson-Gay Gymnasium was built in 1927. The old structure was strengthened, improved, and the dressing rooms added to complete the present building. A completely equipped stage, a spectators, gallery for sports, and a group of administrative oflices were part of the new equipment. Previous to the erection of this stage, all Thespian activities took place in the chapel of Bomberger Hall. The new gymnasium bears the names of Robert W. Thompson '12, and George H. Gay i13, noted Ursinus athletes, both of whom died in their senior year in college. Patterson Field, now the scene of many football contests, was improved about the same time. The present spectators' stand was erected and the running track built. A series of tennis courts was also planned at this time. ln 1922 the Alumni Memorial Library was erected as a tribute to the Ursinus students who served thefr country during the World Wlar, many of whom gave their THE OLD LIBRARY 14 OLEVIAN HALL. AN OLD WOBIEN-S DORMITORY. RAZED IN 1931 it lives. The dignified. marble-entry hall has appropriate dedicatory inscrip- tions to their memory. This building was made possible through aid given by alumni and former students of the college. Not long after the improving of the gymnasium and the athletic field. the corner stones were laid for twin dormi- tories for men students. These build- ings bear the names of two esteemed benefactors of the College-Andrew R. Brodbeck and Cyrus H. K. Curtis. ln 1927 at the same time that the new Curtis and Brodbeck Halls were being erected, the old dormitories were improved. A new dining-room was built in the rear of Freeland Hall between Stine and Derr. The latest and perhaps the greatest addition to the material aspect of the College is the Science Building. The foundations of this imposing structure were begun in 1931, and the building was completed for use in 1932. Ex- tremely modern in equipment and appointment, the building is planned to meet the present and future college needs. The growth of Ursfnus will not stop here. Already there is a demand for a women,s dormitory and a new gym- nasium. the first of which will prob- ably be the next project under- FREELAND HALL BEFORE THE EREcT1oN taken.

THE STUDENT BODY S E N I O R S J U N I O R S S O P H O M O R E S F R E S H M E N M2114 THE STUDENT BODY by ...... DWIGHT L. GREGORY, '34 STUDENTS AT WORK IN THE EARLY NTEENSS, 4. 6 I BELIEVE that the American boy has the better chance for education, for making a true success of his life, in a small collegef,-Elihu Root. lt is with a feeling of pride that we turn back the pages of history to the year when Dr. George L. Omwake began to direct the destinies of Ursinus-the progressive institution that we know today. But history shows that it was not always thus, for the 6'Greater Ursinus" that we know at present, like every other institution, has gone through an evolutionary period which has served to add strength and virility to its present position. ln a small way we shall try to picture in this article the progress that Ursinus has made in the academic world. Statistics show that in 1912 there were only 178 students enrolled at Ursinus while in 1932 there were 477. During this same period the number of alumni in- creased by over 175 per cent. Then, too, along with this increase in the size of the student body there has also been an increase in the size of the faculty. ln 1912, there were only seventeen faculty members while today there are approximately fifty. Furthermore, faculty conference rooms have been established and students at present are continually meeting and conferring with their professors. Thus the traditional antagonism be- tween the faculty and student body is breaking down and a more wholesome attitude is being built up. ln the academic world Ursinus has also made gains that are worthy of note. ln this field our first honor of significance was received in 1921 when the Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Middle States and Maryland listed Ursinus as being on a par with the best colleges and universities in this territory. ln 1931 the Association of American Universities placed Ursinus College on its approved list. ln the same year the American Association of University Women admitted Ursinus College to full membership. Our present rating is the highest that any 38 l THE SENIOR CLASS TWENTY-SIX YEARS Aco college can obtain, and now Ursinus graduates are accepted at all the leading graduate Schools in the country without question. Ursinus men and women may well point with pride to this progress that has been made in keeping abreast with the trend of higher education throughout the country. You ask what has caused this phenomenal progress? Wliy do students from the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland and others come to Ursinus when other larger colleges and universities are within their reach? The answer may be found in a recent report made by Dr. Omwake. It states, in part, "What has happened is that the lesser Ursinus has at length developed into the 'Greaterf It has always been our aim that Ursinus shall not be 'just another college' but that it shall have distinct characteristics that shall make it, if not unique, at least different from other institutions. The 6Creater Ursinusi cannot be Sustained unless it can turn out greater men and womenf, It is such ideals as these, molded into administrative policy, that have contributed to the "Greater Ursinusw that we know today. PHYSICS 'GLABQ' MANY DAYS BEFORE THE SCIENCE BUILDING 39 t ffgudr zz it 4 THE LASS 0 3 by WILLIAM A. CTDONNELL Class President GGSINK OR SVIVINV' Manyyof us have heard these words and never given them much consideration or thought. Let us stop and consider them now and think how well they fit our present situation. Here we are at the edge of the rapid, swirling "river of lifef' Wife have all had the opportunities of the preliminary stages of training before we reached the banks. and we realize now we must take the final plunge. Wie know the two alternatives: either sinking or swimming. Have we availed ourselves of the advantages given to us? Have we absorbed the lessons and training offered us that we might swim in this river of life? Time and only time will give the answer to these questions. We are reaching the banks of the river at a time when it is at its worst. It is not flowing smoothly and serenely. It is a turbid mass, swollen and torrential. It has been affected by a world-wide economic depression which has increased a thousand-fold the number fioating about aimlessly and frantically. Are we too young to be of these? Surely the opportunities offered are not as great as in other years, and to those of us who do receive them it will be a test of our individual ability and fitness. Are we able to face this battle without fear? I believe we are. We have received our training: we have assimilated its major points. We are both young and confident. Perhaps this is a detriment, but it is up to us to prove other- wise. Wfe must remember that "the virtue lies in the struggle, not the prize." I take this time to thank you for the honor you have given me, and I hope I have lived up to the confidence you have placed in me. And so to one and all of you, 4'lVIay you live all the days of your life." 40 WILLIAM A. O'D0NNI5LI. President HAROLD E.

M. C. A. Cabinet 14l .... Lansdale sent a man to Ur- sinus College whom Ursinusites won't forget for a while. Wherever Chet Went, his warble was sure to go, and to hear him warble was some 1?l treat. He demonstrated his musical ability not only in the College Choir and Glee Club, but also in the Band and as organist. Not only Chetis voice, but he, himself. was quite active on the campus and in the classrooms .... Chet has expressed his versatility in being a reporter and special feature writer for the Ursinus Weelrly. a football enthusiast, and one of Ur- sinus's most faithful track men. He has fol- lowed the track team in every meet. always being a perfect gentleman and never thrusting him- self forward too much. There is a great accom- plishment which should be justly attributed to him, he has been successful in his social life at the College, especially with the women. The "squeezing right" theory sponsored by him the past year indicates that perhaps Chester would do better at osteopathy than at medicine. IOLA E. ANDERSON of Chester. History- Social Science Group. Tau Sigma Gamma .... Some people enjoy most at college their week- ends at home. That is perhaps even a good reason to come to college, but when a person is a student and really takes books with her on her regular Friday exodus We must conjecture further. "Oleyi' is rather non-commital in tell- ing the girls why she makes a habit of going home week-ends, maybe itis because she wants to help mother with the housework, because she can study better at home, or Wsomethin' M. The girls at Maples tell us that the real reason is that she still gets homesick. That cannot, however, be accepted as an irrefutable truth, especially when the story is told by women from Maples. . . . Iola has confined her campus friendships chiefly to the girls in the Hall, or more specifi- cally, to the girls in her sorority. Her attitude in class is really deceiving, we are told. She is really so much more animated in the in- formal sessions at the Hall. Well, with all the things possible in Chester and at Maples, being quiet may certainly have its advantages .... lola expects to go into the teaching field. ROBERT E. BENNETT of Kingston.

Not since his freshman year when Allen was around has he had any real competition in his forensic battles. They were the battles! In the course of an hour at least twenty words were said. Al- though slow of tongue, Berky more than makes up for it in his wit and humor. His jokes will go down in history as part of the tradition of Ursinus .... During his stay here Bob has dis- tinguished himself in many ways. In athletics he has been one of the best. In scholarship he is one of the leaders, and his list of activities will lend proof that he has done himself right well in regards to his social life. As a doctor he is going to save himself money. Instead of ether he is going to tell his patients a story and if that doesn't put them to sleep, nothing will. CHARLES BLASBAND of Bridgeport. His- tory-Social Science Group. Basketball tDay Study Teaml 411-lg Manager of Day Study Ath- letics l-ll .... "Good morning, boys, have you heard the one about the Irishman?'7 This is Charlieis greeting to the members of the Day Study. The Day Study is enlivened by Charlie's jokes, not because of their quality or color. but because of their antiquity .... Blassy is an authority on criminology and gangsterism. If you doubt it, ask Professor Carter or any of the Public Speaking class of the year 1931-2 about the elaborate speeches given by Blasband on crime prevention and gangster wars .... Charley was also Professor WitH16l',S right-hand man in operating the camera in Composition 3-4 .... Blassy is also learned in the game called Horse and Pepper. This used to be the favorite pastime of a few day students .... He reached the height of his campus political career the past fall when he was elected to the managership of the Day Study intra-mural teams after an extensive campaign. ffjudg 7 ffxfz 71 I MARION BLEW of Lansdowne.

Her name is found in almost every activity, and, some believe, none of these would be complete without her .... Being a day student 1from Evansburg1, Monty has found it necessary to hike to classes-at times. As a result she hasnit been about the campus very often at night, we have regretfully noticed. By the looks of things, however, it wouldnit have done us much good anyway .... Although one of the uphys eddersn, Monty has not confined her activity solely to women's ath- letics. She has been known to state boldly her views in class meetings, to exhibit a most "devoted" ability in dramatics, and to be an ardent supporter of the football team. ln the field last mentioned she sincerely believes that the tackle position is the most difficult on the team, and that the nicest boys play in that capacity. CHARLTON H. BONHAM, JR., of Wilkes- Barre. Business Administration Group. Sigma Bho Lambda. Glee Club 131, College Band 11, 2, 31: College Orchestra, President 141, Baseball Manager 141 .... "Scurry" is one of the products of the Vifyoming Valley who de- cided to attend school far from the breakers and neighboring coal banks, but who since his arrival here has attempted to sell HBlue Coal" and all its products to the school. ln his sales- manship he has not confined himself to coal alone but the last summer he spent telling the good and bad twists in all kinds and types of pretzels. His best selling adventure was when he talked "Jenny" into letting him sing in the Glee Club. When not scurrying about, Chuck may be found up in his den in Derr Hall in- dulging in a bit of Culbertson's pastime. As a resident of Derr he soon became a good friend of "Marlene's,' and in the mornings he could be found having a heart-to-heart talk with her concerning a broken chair or window, and sym- pathizing deeply with her. Or perhaps he might be in the office making up with Sally and re- newing old friendships .... Oh dear! CLARENCE S. BOSTON of ivest Pittston. Mathematics Group .... A tall, angular fellow from the coal fields, who, besides excelling in mathematics, has been a good friend and saviour of willing but helpless freshmen involved in math courses .... This big left-hander has ability in basketball, but he seems to prefer other indoor sports, especially those requiring less effort. He has shown skill in basketball in the intra-mural games. His pet activity, however, is tying his roommate in a knot .... Clarence is interested in aviation, and, during his freshman year, he made flights home and back to college on several occasions. Since he lost his crate, Clarence's favorite outc oor sport is driving the relatives' cars .... During his first three years here, Boston seemed to be a shy, retiring young chap. but in his senior year other characteristics began to develop-well, shall we forget it? MILES R. BOWER of Royersford. Business Administration Group .... The depression came early and left early for this fellow. Bower started at Ursinus as far back as 1926. Three years later, he felt the first pangs of the depres- sion and decided to take a respite from the academic realm in order to garner the necessary finances to continue his educational endeavors. That was in 1929. Having made up his mind then that he was going to finish sometime, Miles did come back this past September to be gradu- ated eight years after he started. That may sound had, but in this individual case it merely denotes perseverance .... Bower is a day stu- dent and a daily inhabitant of that section of Bomberger made infamous by the Blasband, Russo Sz Co., dealers in cards. He was not, however. directly affected by the prevailing loose mien and sense of propriety of the carefree day students. A few years at work in the actual business world had made him too sensible and mature for that .... After Miles receives his B. S. in June. he expects to enter the field of business, headed for a definite career. lfjll, 7? fflzrdz DONALD G. BREISCI-I of Slatington. His- tory-Social Science Group. Demas.

When you hear a big noise coming your way, or feel yourself making an uncontrolled change of position, or find that your ticklish parts are being massaged most violently, you may rest assured that this great big two hundred pounds of muscle is on your trail. Breisch is one of the biggest in the class and has proven to be quite versatile in athletics. We did not see "Pollyi' do much in his junior year because of a leg injury sus- tained early in the football season .... "Don" goes home only for the week-ends, always re- turns on Monday morning, claiming that he can study better at home than at school. He has been able to get around somewhat in college. and as a result of this fact. he will never forget the La Salle basketball game in his sophomore year .... Don has found time to hit the books and came close to taking departmental honors in psychology his sophomore year .... Breisch intends to teach history and German after graduation. ANNA MAE BROOKS of Washington Square. English Group. Debating Club Ml .... Anna came to us with a background of such wide experience that she has actually been far be- yond our capacity for true appreciation. Her philosophy is always changing, for she is con- stantly searching for more satisfactory solu- tions to her problems. It is this preoccupied attitude which always surrounds her that makes it hard to know "Ann',, but even if she does take life seriously, even if she does seem re- moved by her own wall of defense, she is a girl sensitive to the little things. With an almost child-like enthusiasm she offers her help will- ingly and throws herself whole-heartedly into everything she does .... To say that Ann is a good student would be rating her mildly, for she is the kind of person who actually delights in study. Moreover, she has a mind alive to beauty. and a capacity for expressing her thought in poetry. She is mature in her think- ing, and decided in the judgments she has formed, but in spite of all these fine qualities she possesses, she is still afraid for her own abilities which testify for themselves.

L'Sleep, Sleep, Sleep." This theme song introduces Sally, but don't be misled by a song. She does sleep more than a lot, 'tis true. but when she is awake she is right on the job and is one of the students in the class .... English is Sally's major for more reasons than one. At least her work in that group and her literary activities, including those for publica- tion and otherwise, caused much lack of sleep. However, she always made sure her hours of insomnia were balanced 1 ? 1 at any cost. Thank goodness, Ursinus gives unlimited cutsl . . . Next to sleeping, Sally enjoys talking. and what a "gift of gabi' she has. But this, too, serxecl a utilitarian purpose, as the Debating Club and the green Freshmen girls can testify in those "wee small hour" courses .... ln sports. though. she didnit participate. she was a real college booster. Wlieri all the stands were quiet. you could still hear Sally shouting. However. her main interest was in wrestling. Why? That still remains a secret. ROSE-MARIE BRUBAKER of Phoenixville.

Rosie is according to Lynnewood the best-natured, most generous individual. She spent her four years doing things for people. At first, for individuals and friends, but later for the student body and the college. It seems, however, that at last someone is beginning to appreciate her .... Besides her passion for Keats, Shelley, and Wagne1', Rose-Marie has some other interests. She likes ice cream and Lehigh, and she has even been known to post on her door a sign reading, 'aln Nirvanafdo not disturb." She's fond of operas, symphony orchestras. sleep, Jer- gen's Lotion, and certain professors. But she has several weaknesses, too. She can't tie her own sashes. She can't remember to drive Dippy at a speed that befits the poor thing, and she canit remember that thereis no use arguing with Sylvia. - M311 71 1 ffxn il G If 3 DAVID T. BURHANS of Highlands, N. J. Chemistry-Biology Group. Anders Pre-Medical Society 43, 41 .... ln the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty, David T. Bur- hans walked into the fair portals of Ursinus. Little did we realize then the importance of the personage who was entering our midst. It was some time before David was given the aliases by which he is commonly known, name- ly, "Whitey7' and "Stonewall", Whitey started very inauspiciously as a member of the class, but soon rose from the masses to be one of our leading lights. Realizing that his brawn and weight could not be used on the athletic field, he turned his attention to his studies .... "Stonewall", though a quiet figure on campus. has had incidents in his life which have made it colorful. No one in the history of Ursinus has attacked stone walls with the vigor and aggressiveness of Burhans, and thrown its com- ponent parts so accurately. Stoney, too, has the enviable record of cutting only six classes in four years. He waited until his senior year to take his fling in the social life of the campus, but from this point on broken hearts will be strewn along the path. LEONARD H. CADWELL of Glenmore. His- tory-Social Science Group. RUBY. photograph- er .... The married man of the class. Really. Cadwell is, as far as we know, the only man in the class who was married while going to college. He entered the bonds of matrimony at the age when most of us start going to col- lege and came to college at the age when many of us will be contemplating marriage. Judging from the commendable results he has obtained in his studies, we are beginning to think that perhaps he had the right idea .... Being a day student did not restrain him from keeping up on things going on about the campus. Inde- fatigable with his camera, he was always on the lookout for good pictures which were to help make the RUBY. Perhaps his picture-taking hobby was only an alibi to get Saturday after- noons off from his marital duties to get to football games. We have heard that married life is like that .... His wife being a teacher and Cadwell expecting to go into that field, we may read in the Ursinus Weekly a few years hence an advertisement of "The Cadwell Prep- aratory Schooli'-"Sons of Ursinus graduates given preference." DALE L. CARLBERG of Berwick. Chemistry- Biology Group. Glee Club 43, 1-tg Anders Pre- lVledical Society 13, -lt, Cross-Country tl, 23. . . . Coming from the high school of a town like Berwick, which has already produced a Secretary of the Treasury and a professor of physics, should be an asset to anyone. How- ever, Dale doesn't boast about it, but quietly does his work to maintain l1is standing in the Chem-Bi Group. He has, as yet, no intentions of becoming a financier or a politician. lnstead, he aspires to be a science teacher or, preferably, a medical student, and for the past two years has been a member of the J. M. Andersiljre- Medical Society .... As a Freshman and again as a Sophomore, Dale aspired to honors in the field of cross-country running, but for the past two years he has tapered off to the point of adding his volume to the bass section of the Glee Club. Of course, as captain of the "Maples Cadetsw he has been getting his exercise hiking back to Stine after the evening parade. I ALLAN CLAGHORN of Narberth. Chem- istry-Biology Group.

At this time we want to correct an erron- eous statement that has permeated the campus since Allan made his advent here in our soph- omore year. That is the fact that so many of the students give him the name "Foghorn". No, you are wrong, it is pronounced "Clag-hornii. Those who insisted upon the above misnomer were perpetrating a crime against a member of the Ursinus faculty. This was very discourag- ing to say the least .... Allan has also been associated with a famous triumyirate during his stay here. This fraternal group broke up, however, due to some dissension within the ranks .... Al held a position as laboratory assistant in the biology department as long as we can remember. Wliile acting in that capacity he insisted upon putting all sorts of red marks over our note books. But it didn't matter much for most of us could not decipher what he meant anyway .... The teaching field seems to hold charms and delights for this gentleman twitness his defence of Professor Tyson and all his new-fangled educational propagandat. George certainly does have a champion in this man and will do well to follow his wanderings in the pedagogic world. J". X 11, if ff ? Xfziw JOHN R. CLARK of Cape May Court House, N. J.

Some fellows are versatile and some just dangle in a lot of things.

He roomed with Houck for one year, but be- came inclined to believe that there were more advantages in rooming alone. Hence, Clark became an inhabitant of the Brodbeck dungeon for the remainder of his college days. His retirement in the dungeon and the time he spent in the labs kept him so secluded that some of the freshmen thought he was a day student. Perhaps this day student theory might have been founded by the frequent sight of him walk- ing up or down Fifth Ave .... Clark expects to become an lVl. D. NAOMI M. CLARK of Easton.

And so she remains as a Senior- adding to her gypsy-like character a certain sophistication that belies a senior always. An- other of her gypsy qualities is her week-end wanderings. To Lehigh and Lafayette goes Nom to bring back gay and interesting tales of other lands .... Perhaps you have wondered concern- ing the Htrimmingsw of this book, and all the other paraphernalia that go under the heading of 'CArt". This is Nom,s work-truly displaying her appreciation of the beautiful as well as her originality and cleverness. Throughout her en- tire four years, Naomi's work has graced the frequent posters needed for publicity, the dance programs, the sketches, etc. Ursinus will miss this as well as Naomi herself. EDITH M.

Edith is one of the persons who has worn the sharp edges off the stones between the Library and Bomberger. The Girls' Day Study in the latter building being her borne on the campus and her serving as a part-time custo- dian of the Library have perhaps been the obvious causes of this. In the Library she was marked by the meticulous way in which she catered untiringly to the endless demands of the campus literati. During her Day Study respites, she was less reservedejust one of those carefree day students .... Edith's greatest profi- ciency on campus has been her fine art work. Practically every event on the campus featured "Posters by Cressmann. Her art ability was not, however, her proudest attainment. As a commuter, she boasts of having had less "f'latsi' on her car per mile than have any of the other autos on the campus. Indirectly, however, dur- ing one of last winter's blizzards, her ever faithful f'Chevy" was responsible for her missing Yost's German class for the only time in three years. If she had had a horse instead, we feel sure that this would not have happened. ROBERT H. CUNNINGHAM, JR., of Pater- son, N. J. Business Administration Group. Zeta Chi.

"Bob'7 is another one of the fellows who come from Jersey. For the last three years he has roomed with Longaker, and with him controlled the destinies of Curtis Hall .... Cunningham invested in a Ford roadster with red wheels during his senior year, giving evi- dence that managing the football team might be a lucrative position. Even though he has a car and is a character of unusually fine appearance. Bob has shown the will power to keep free from the social affiliations on the campus, de- voting his afternoons to bridge and frequently spending his evenings in serious study. He has been one of the few on the campus to bafiie Marlene Deatrick, doing this by his remote control of a rocking chair from his closet .... Bob can more than hold his own in wielding the tennis racquet, and his score on the golf course is down in the eighties. This is typical because it shows there is much about Bob we do not know.

September 16, 1932, found noted in the diary of every co-ed of note as the time that a good-looking, eligible man of much prom- ise had come here. Everett, transferring from Penn State, was the cause of all this. Despite the yearnings of all the fair co-eds he even found time to study, and really did spend most of his spare time with the fellows .... Though Danehower lived on the campus for only two years, he was soon found to be indispensable in many ways. His playing was a big factor in making possible a representative tennis team, he seemed to just fit the part in the current campus dramatic productionsg and his ability in mathematics enabled many of the boys to work off their math requirements. The Ford he possessed his senior year had the record of transportng safely and soberly to, and safely hack more persons per trip than any of the other wrecks on the campus.

Taking Horace Greeleyis advice when he said, HGO west, young man, go west," Hank left the old home town and went as far west as Bluffton, Ohio, and there attended school for the first two years of his college career. Realizing that even Horace might be wrong, especially when Ursinus was so close to home, he decided to take advantage of the opportunities here, hence the transfer. Dame Rumor has it that, although Hank left Bluffton physically, he left a very integral part of himself out there and that his departure was marked with sighs and sobs .... During his short stay here, he has been engaged in many campus activities and has shown his brilliance and prowess on the football field where he was equally proli- cient in the backfield and on the line .... Then, too, who can forget that showroom bass voice of his, swelling the already inarticulate sounds coming forth from the Y. M. C. A. Chorus. So, Hank, when you are out struggling for your bread and butter and anything gets in your way, hit it like you hit them in football and then if they don't move, give them a blast of your old bass, and if that doesnat move them, you know you are licked.

Kay, who came to us from Delaware University, had something tangible to offer and she gave it, thus gaining for herself a place in the annals of the known. It didn't take her long to carve out her niche at Ursinus. For besides helping to found a permanent colony receptive to her literary efforts, she went in for exploring-though she didnit term her frequent walks just that. But being a newspaper reporter makes it necessary for one to know how to get around and find things out. Kay may have told you that such actions on her part were purely business propositions, but when one goes for a "scoop" he usually goes alone. Still, her Weekly work testified to one who has been on the job .... Kay was wise enough to know she couldnit get along without the forensic art, either in convincing Alger-loving high school boys the worth of poetry, or in a literary career, so she again made her personality felt in the oldest pastime of women-argumentation ....

Vulcan is the name of the town that we may blame for sending "Miken to Ursinus. Upon arrival he had the ideals of many college freshmen who sought their A. B. degree. After several successful semesters of exercising with Caesar and Virgil he turned his attention to other cultural subjects, namely. penthousing and browbeating freshmen. It was not until his junior and senior years that Mike came before the eyes of the public. ln his junior year he realized his ability as a Thespian. and then there began a series of coincidences that were found hard to explain .... ln his senior year Dresch was president of the Student Council and while holding this position he showed his executive ability by handling the affairs of the student body in a most competent manner. He gave a 'cnew deal", talking straight from the shoulder. ln his work he showed the same ability and his record is one to be proud of. While majoring in history and political science, which has taken up a great deal of his time, he has had, however, sufficientileisure to keep up with his afternoon naps and evening pajama parties. fillgl t ff' ' X11 ri I HELEN F.

Being in the Physical Ed. group, Helen's major at Ursinus is, nominally, play. Very well, too. does she fit the part, for it seems that few people, if any, enjoy their work in the gymnasium as she does. If a smiling face may be taken as a barometer of oneis feeling, it might be inferred that she finds enjoyment even in falling off the high-bar, and that is something ....

As one of the Glenwood ladies, Janel centered her campus activity at that hall. During the BS. era 1before Stahrl, she learned many things of the World from the varied types that made Glenwood a popular hall. Jane, however, was not prone to mimic the 'tbig girlsw, but was rather inclined to tolerate others with her coy smile 1we don't know, however, just what she would be think- ingl .... lane always claimed that she liked the life on the campus a lot, but she has never been known to miss an opportunity to get to West Chester for the week-end. She has also evidently enjoyed the meals at the College most when she dined at Doc Winkleris .... Jane hopes to obtain a position in the actuarial department of an insurance company after graduation. M. JOSEPH FARRELL of Collegeville. Chem- istry-Biology Group. Hall Chemical Society 1-ll .... Joe is distinguishable from the masses by being the owner of that indescribable Model "T" Ford that bounces around the campus. He has been known to frighten sweet young things half out of their wits with his practice of tear- ing around corners amid a terrific clatter of fenders and what-not. If the old 'Lizzie doesnit explode with Joe some day he ought to live to a ripe old age .... As the hard-working local boy who made good in college, Farrell is to be found on Saturdays, complete with his cute, curly hair, working about the grounds of the Kelly home. Weekdays he is generally pursu- ing his favorite vocation-that of being a chem- ist .... Since Joe came to Ursinus from College- ville High School as a three-letter man, Elmo feared him as his greatest rival for the title of ubest local boy athlete since Don Sternerw. Joe's working in his spare time, however, forced him to withdraw from this competition. Instead of this honor, it is expected that he will receive the award of a brown derby from the day stu- dents who have admired his khaki outfit for four years .... Farrell expects to go to medical school. GEORGE WASHINGTON FISS, 3rd, of Mer- chantville, N. J. lVIathematics Group. Hall Chemical Society 13, it .... The silicates of South Jersey have at last precipitated from their midst a residue that has forborne the rigors of analysis. George comes from Merchantville- Rapid Transit service to Camden-but the matrix of cosmopolitan life has no more coined him than has stereotypic college life. He persists in his love of practical jokes, knowledge of women and the proper time to hang curtains when winter falls .... More seriously, George has a fondness and a precocity for detail that is amazing. Surely his chosen subjects, mathe- matics and chemistry, were not selected without purpose. It is very likely that within a few years this aptitude will lead to more than a knowledge of mechanical toys and the intricacies of udungeonm locks. His activity in both the Hall Chemical Society and as a member of the "lVIath', group have further shown this deeper note in his nature .... Not entirely an enigma, the photograph so covertly placed upon his dresser has often caused speculation. But how does George so nonchalantly maintain his fine classwork? The piles of magazines stacked within his door bear mute evidence to the vari- ety and minutia of his sources. f Xu if I, All P1 FLORENCE M. FRCSCH of Philadelphia. Chemistry-Biology Group.

Someone suggested she would save time if she took her bed up to the Science Building1. Anyone that frequents Ralplfs can tell you about her original "scale" laugh, and the way she tells stories about the "Baron's" favorite personage. Both of these qualities added to week-end trips will make good sickroom cheer for this promising young doctor's prospective patients.

To those who do not know her, the impression Marion probably gives is that of a nice, quiet girl. It might be said that there is more than a nice, quiet girl behind those intelli- gent-looking brown eyes. "low is, above all, always herself. In her there is a capacity and ability that is never demonstrated ostentatiously. She goes about her work with a quiet efficiency that is enviable .... Night after night, hers is the voice on the 'phone that tells you to drop your nickel in. Despite the fact that being a telephone operator takes most of her extra time, and incidentally, her ustudying time" in college, Jois marks warrant her a place on the 'HBR list ....

"Mor- ganw, as she is familiarly called, with her pal and "co-mate in crime", Bessie, has been the life of that contingent from the time it fumed with odors from the Meat-labii until the period of its present palatial dimensions.

It at least takes up the greater part of her time. Her argument to uphold that right. as presented by her, is that she expects to teach English, and one cannot get too much practical experience in her chosen vocation.

Here's farewell to another who has made his residence in Derr Hall for four years. "Pope" comes to us from Hazleton, a coal min- ing section. However, he is not thought of as a coal miner, although he has been digging for years. After being influenced by the capable Q'Cannonball Bakerm his Freshman year, he has exhibited universal ability, not only in the class- room but in many other activities as well. When not devoting his time to books one may usually find him eating or hunting an apple. As Editor- in-Chief of the Weekly, he has aroused the in- terests of the college by his many famous edi- torials lafter being carefully trained by Prof. Witrner and Dr. Crose during his Freshman yearl ....

Louise comes from the Coplay cement regions and if it is true that environment plays a major role in characters then Louise need feel no qualms about meet- ing life. after having imbibed concrete dust all her life. Her philosophy is quite set and her purpose just as determined as the material of her locality is durable. At the age of ten she flunked arithmetic, and then decided to become a "math" major in college. Perhaps her en- vironment has already begun to take. At any rate she did enter the "math" group and her success may be indicated by the fact that she has become its president, and is also explaining the X's and Yis to sophomores in Royersford. . . . It seems as if her primary interest the past year, next to a correspondence Hcoursei' in Ger- man, was astronomy. Since Louise is not naturally divulgent of nature we can't be sure whether all the manifested zeal was in the stars. However, we must give her credit for her discre- tion, since it has brought her tangible results. MARION L. HAGEMAN of Rutherford, N. J. English Group. Phi Alpha Psi.

Marion came to Ursinus with a voice of rare lyric quality, which was duly appreci- ated by the noted Madame Hartenstine, who lost no time in drafting Marion. From that time, starting with the College Choir, she saw much activity in the various musical organizations in individual roles as well as in choruses. Yet, this was only one side of Marion. Most signifi- cant of her positions were those affiliations with the Y. W. C. A. So engrossed and involved did Marion become with the women's Christian or- ganization that she found herself president of it as a senior, the position that brings with it the inference "-the ideal Y.

Hershey of Hershey came to Ursinus after having made a most enviable record at lVIercers- burg. Most enviable of Ed's records is that of having the most complete wardrobe on the campus, being one of the few men to own more than thirteen suits .... An ardent exponent of argumentation, one of his pet pastimes is debat- ing such questions as, which state has the best roads, what dance orchestra rates first, or which is the best fraternity on the campus .... Realiz- ing that his primary purpose in coming to col- lege was to study, Ed was rather reluctant at first to aliiliate himself with any extra-curricular activities. However, the vox populi of the cam- pus could not be left unanswered, and ttBig Edi' was practically drafted to become one of the campus satellites. Academically, Hershey has been one of Dr. Barnard's pre-law students, tak- ing nearly every political science course offered. We have heard that Harvard, Pennsylvania, and Duke Law Schools are bidding heavily for his services. May the best University get him. HAROLD E. I-IOUCK of Reading. Chem- istry-Biology Group, Weekly.

As an Assistant in the Biology laboratory, Houck has often verified the work of Pasteur, Schleiden, and Schwann, but more often he has blighted the genius of enterprising 4'Frosh', .... Harold's experiences in the dining-room merit a word of mention. The manner in which he dashed around with a tray was simply breath-taking. However, he was promoted rapidly and waited on the Dean's table in his sophomore year. It was while serv- ing in this capacity that he gained distinction by insisting upon combing his hair each time before entering the dining-room .... It was once rumored on campus that Harold was on time for something, but upon investigation it was found that there was no foundation for this gossip ....

Lots of us have seen that very blond girl who so unconsciously rolls her eyes: but how many of us really know her? Weill admit not many are favored by that mischievous and teas- ing smile, that impish glance so typically Mary to her best friends. but there are a lot of things about her that perhaps only Shreiner girls know. . . . There are her rollicking attempts at "Penn- sylvania Dutch" and her inimitable humor which have sent the girls into gales of laughter. Her cheerfulness and disposition are never un- ruffled. except, of course. when she feels that the United States postal service can be improv ed upon. However. the 'hrnailw from Bloonisburg is quite prompt .... Oh. yes. there are Maryis outside interests, but after all that wouldn't be fair. She may intend to be an imparter of knowledge to high school students. but there is "many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip." The future may have something else in store for her. as perhaps a musical career. for as a student under Dr. Goepp and by her active participation in such organizations on campus she could qual- ify most ably.

Practically the only time Johnson is to be seen is when he is trudging between the Science Building and Bomberger with the preoccupied look and frown characteristic of pre-meds: in Howard we have an embryo M. D. His other favorite haunts are the many labs in the Science Building. He can be found with the rest of the pre-meds in the anatomy laboratory pulling a cat apart to see what makes it go, or in the Organic lab trying to get a yield that will satisfy the powers that be .... Howard did not go in heavily for extra-curricular activities on the campus but has been content rather to rest upon the laurels he has garnered as a future medico. In keeping with his chosen vocation, he has been a faithful member of the James lVl. Anders Pre-Med. Soci- ety for two years ....

The Class of 1934 is very fortunate in securing the graduation of Henry Luke, for the threat of this event has been hang- ing over his head for the last four years. We offer thanks to the Ursinus meals for luring him back from Rensselaer. As a former student of engineering he is able to generate a great deal of steam concerning the meals .... Luke has become known as the Defender of the Oppressed and the stern upholder of the sovereign rights of Derr Hall when they are threatened by the invasion of the hostile 6'lVlarlene". As a result of being on the 'GBM list, Luke has great diffi- culty in attending his morning classes and is no longer considered one of the leading benefac- tors of the library .... Seriously speaking, Luke is one of the outstanding members of the class. He is engaged in quite a few extra-curricular activities, principally dramatics, in which he has held some outstanding roles. One of Luke's cherished ambitions, however, is to be a radio announcer. Whether he does this, or does gradu- ate work in French, it is Certain that neither will change him.

Emily might claim personal distinction in many ways: she is, according to the College Catalogue, the only senior woman in the Busi- ness Administration Group, the lone cello in the newly organized symphony orchestra is played by "Em',, and she has earned the renown at Shreiner, being hall treasurer and serving on the women's dormitory committee, of having handled more money than any of the other young ladies in the hall. The proper conclusion to draw might well be that perhaps it is worth while to combine the practical with the aesthetic. . . . Business-like and efficient, Emily, her friends have learned, expects exactitude and precision from others, yes, she usually prepares for her classes from day to day. And Hall Treasurer Laber seems always to remember when dues are to be paid, and who has not met her assessments leven before she took a course in accountingl. . . .

Helen is the girl who knows what she expects from a college education and has set out to get it. She has probably secured a better-rounded education than most people in the College. With no teaching requirements to worry about. Helen has explored almost every field of aca- demic work and has fared well .... Besides her class work she has always displayed a keen in- terest in athletics-both men's and womenis- and. more than that, a decided ability. She earned for herself a place on the varsity hockey and basketball teams during her last year. To supplement this. Helen has developed an interest in another of the womenis sports--hiking .... Helen has not decided definitely what she will do after leaving Collegeg but living in Shreiner for several years, and having completed Doc VVhite's course in contemporary world history, no ordinary domestic or worldly problems should puzzle her.

Estherfs chief attribute is her versatility, which is al- most enough to say about anyone. Her debat- ing ability was evident from her very first year on campus.

George is the lad that, as a freshman, made a very auspicious start on the campus. His gentle- manly carriage and meticulously neat appear- ance appealed not only to the admiring co-eds but also, very evidently, to the men of the upper classes, to mark him as uthe perfect freshman". This prominent reception did not turn his head. Unaffected, he preferred instead to go places and do things within his selected crowd. In this Longaker secured a very liberal education out- side the classroom. On the other hand. however, he hardly ever has taken his full allowance of ucutsi' in any course, and he has never been known to lose sleep .... Several closely observed characteristics will always be associated with him: his attraction to cross-word puzzles in odd moments, his devotion to double-breasted suits, the habit of eating late at night, distinctive ability at bridge, and a never-ceasing desire to take over a certain few of the boys in Curtis at golf .... George will attend Jefferson Medical School in the fall. HERMINE L. LOOS of Jersey City, N J. Eng- lish Group. Alpha Sigma Nu.

Although she comes from Jer- sey City, Hermine is more typical of the metrop- olis across the river. Not only does her accent denote L'New Yawkw, but her whole personality is as unfathomable as is that many-sided city. To carry the comparison furtherg one side of her nature is gay, frivolous, and like the bril- liant lights of Broadway-artificial. Although the campus sees Hermine laughing, joking, wise- cracking, and unperturbedg although they may call her "Giggles", they do not know the rest of her make-up. Hermine is a girl who often indulges in introspection and. as a result of self-analysis, has established a rather peculiar set of life values. It is this part of her that is difficult to understand, for it is seen only by her most intimate friends. yet it is most surelv a part of her.

It soon became evident, however, that the bandana wasn't entirely necessary for ex- citement. Betty established herself as a cam- pus social light, and "Rec Hall" had a steady client. The football team soon entered, and Betty learned all about the quarterback position. . . . In her junior year she joined the ranks of Bernhardt and Cornell, gaining honors in the Junior Play and in practically all subsequent major productions. At this time Betty was also actively engaged in understanding the halfback position on the football team, the dashes and shot put on the track team, and the virtues of hiking .... Despite her constant social entangle- ments. Betty has managed to appease the profs. As for her plans after graduation, they are rather vague: but there are probabilities. Mill 71 1 MIRIAM E.

A human dynamo-five feet of vim, vigor and vitality-ninety-five pounds of restless energy. Nothing is too much trouble for Ginny. Per- haps they train people that way at Hood. from which place Ginny came to us in her sophomore year: we're inclined to believe itis just her nature. Have you ever seen her when sheis not in a rush to or from some errand. rehearsal. or committee meeting? . . . Draniatics is her specialty. Her main contribution in campus productions was in the make-up department. still. her work and activity off campus has been suHicient to merit notice. She can even hold up the writing end of dramatics. as the selec- tion of her pageant for May Day proves. Be- sides dramatics, Virginia likes fortune telling in any way. shape. or form. In fact she can even tell her own fortune. Ginny is a dav- student. but during her senior year we managed to keep her on campus once in a while. But even then. she was so busy doing something- or-other of importance. for somebody-or-other. that we hardly realized she was here any more than usual. DOROTHY L. MILLER of Mohnton.

She seems especially designed for ufoodi' committees, for wherever there are re- freshments, Dot may be seen presiding over them. We wonder how she stays so thin .... And then next to food, money seems to be an attraction, for she could be found most any time pleading with the maids in Maples to pay just "part of their duesii .... Her great desire is to become a teacher, and to harass the young- er generation with such forgotten facts as the Stamp Act or the Tariff of 1823, but she spends most of her evenings buried in the newest novel, with a reserve supply of magazines beside her. She has. incidentally, always managed to get plenty of sleep, too. LOUIS W. MITCHELL of Wayrie. History- Social Science Group.

The "Fighting Parsonn is a title that has been fit- tingly applied to Mitchell, the minister. He earned this cognomen during his sophomore year because of his aggressive attitude on the grid- iron .... In this connection an incident might be related that very few people on the campus have heard. It took place during his junior year on the day of the F. 81 M. game. Lou was primed for this tilt and was expected to break into the line-up. However, as fate would have it, he was called to a funeral on that afternoon. After leading the funeral procession at break- neck speed, Lou conducted a short ceremony and headed back for the gridiron. Throwing off his ceremonial robes and donning a football suit, he assumed his usual gridiron role .... Mitchell is a man who thoroughly enjoys life, as is evi- denced by his many extra-curricular activities- including an active part in the Frosh-Soph tug of war and the water battle that followed. Fur- thermore, he is one step ahead of us, having al- ready made a break into his profession, the rnin- istry. If gl X " .1 y 7 fi X11 '1 1 MARTHA M. MOORE of Uwchland. Mod- ern Language Group.

Such a name alone would be an insurmountable ob- stacle for most people, but not for Marty. Her charm and personality have more than compen- sated for "Uwe-hland" .... Marty is a faithful supporter of "Rec-i' Hall, and to some people. has been a very significant reason for that placeis popularity. Despite her fondness for dancing. Martyis interests have extended well beyond "Rec" Hall, ranging all the way from the Y. W. C. A. up to the presidency of the W. S. G. A. It may well be said that this young lady's list of activities takes in practically everything of any importance on the campus ....

Another of York's tribe, quiet but bright and talented, that's how this Lynnewood Lassie can be described. She is an individual one must know in order to ap- preciate her friendship, and then-you really do! . . . If you ever see Marywhen she is not either dancing or somehow jumping around on her feet, something is wrong, for one of Mary's chief interests is dancing. Her ability is not wasted in tapping around the dormitory, how- ever, for May Day pageants have always in- cluded her among their solo dancers. She is also talented in drawing, silhouettes of her friends, being her specialty. Next to our friend Harold, languages are her "weakness", for she excels in both French and Spanish .... lVIary's usual route is from Lynnewood to Romberger, or Freeland, down Eighth Avenue and back to Lynnewood's Reception Room.

Betty was in many ways the life of Lynnewood where she kept things lively for the past three years, being at the bottom of a great many of the tricks played on the hall- mates and of most of the mischief. Her pranks may be anything as harmless as aiming snow- balls at an open third floor front window, or as daring as frightening 'GVVoodlyn" campers al- most out of their wits with strange noises in the silence of the night. Lynnewood inmates will remember her best by her passion for chocolate ice cream and flowers .... Betty has a weakness for the violin, and one of her biggest thrills, we are told. was hearing Fritz Kreisler play his Stradivarius. Besides fiddling, she sings a sonor- ous alto and whistles an unmistakable whistle. WILLIAM A. O'DONNELL, JR., of Colmar. History-Social Science Group. Sigma Rho Lambda.

O'Donnell has roomed with Kochenberger for the past three years. and both have carried on campaigns for various im- provements on the campus. Among these. that "injudicious" letter to the Ursinus Weekly was not the least important ....

Out of the dim past of her early days at Ursinus there are niurmurs of such things as a Moby Dick episode and a whale that was for a long time SMO's pet aversiong "Uncle Tom's Cabini' on ice floes of beds and chairs: and Sophomore room stackers. But from those days and the graceful and unique desc-ents of the stair.

The campus didn't hear much of this young man. but nevertheless, he was back of all cam- pus activities. "Pete,' preferred to be an inter- ested spectator rather than an active participant of college events .... "Lew', saw action in Freshman baseball. His twirling was consistent and efficient. He played varsity baseball the next two years acting in the capacityf of a 'fshockii pitcher .... Pete's life in the udormsf' was rather quiet and uneventful. In his senior year he roomed up in the Freeland 6'Penthousei'. Here Peteis opinions on life in general changed. Even his cold-hearted disinterest in women fell to a more common level .... Pete has another weakness-that of writing poetry and what-not. In his Junior year, he deserted the poetical field to enter the realm of the essayist.

Reds is one of the clients of the gym. ln other words, she is in the "phys ed" group. and can usually be found in the gym. Her other favorite hang-out is Doc Wiiikler's back room.

This talented young lady did not come to Ursinus until her sophomore year. The first year of her college life was spent at Cedar Crest and since then, by her many tales of life there. she has made us envious of the freedom enjoyed by their students. However, she seemed to thrive here despite the many rules which govern the activities of Ursinus co-eds .... Fif has entertained in rec hall many times with her excellent jazz playing. Friday evenings, how- ever dull, were considerably brightened by her recitals .... ln the Hall, Fif was the 'glfreshman terrorw. The heater was her pet abomination and her frequent order was 6'Freshman, light the heater." . . . Dancing in rec hall, where she was duly evident, and dramatics were her chief campus interests .... As for her future, we are willing to bet that Fif will not remain in the teaching profession long, but will marry a wealthy man who will minister to her material needs.

Prim is the word that best describes Kathryn, or perhaps precise would be better since she is so mathematically inclined. It seems unbeliev- able that one so small and unassuming should be a mathematical wizard, but the number of bewildered underclassmen storming her room during Moffice hoursi' proves that such is the case. Even high school students begin to see light when Kathryn works on them .... It is also rumored that Kathryn is musically inclined. She has a voice, and it seems that voice can sing. As proof of this ability, there is her active participation in Choir and Music Club in both of which she is an old standby .... And then there are other rumors. Pottstown, Kathrynis social life, and a certain Bert, but of course we dare not search for proof of these rumors. At any rate it sounds all right .... Kathryn expects to teach-for a time anyway. A.

Four years ago a vivacious little girl with big, sparkling eyes and a come-hither smile introduced herself on campus saying. "Just call me Lou." And that has been her nomenclature ever since, though an occasional "Nellie" added unappreciated variety. At first appearance. Louis hair was evolving from the pert uwindblown" stage, and since then has gone more than once through all the phases from hairpins to shears. Whatever the stage, the cry is the same: "I canit do a thing with my hairlii Still she always appears as if she had just stepped out of a band box .... ln the course of events, the famous "Red and Louw partner- ship became a campus institution.

"Nom Mr. Rob- son. when will you become a student?" This. indeed, is a terrible stigma to thrust upon a carefree individual. fresh from all the deyiltries of a tough coal region high school. However. Clarence did not give up the ship. for he realized that if he were to be a parson he would have to master the rudiments of the English language as set forth by Professor Crose. ,After a year of faithful effort. he overcame the above men- tioned handicap .... Then. too. Clarence re- deemed himself further in his senior year by deserting the Freeland "Parsons" and moving into the luxurious. modern dormitory called Brodbeck. It seems that despite the backing of the clergy he was not able to hold his cohorts in check after 3.2 made its advent into that hall. . . . Despite these many escapades. Clarence has proved to the student body that he is on the right track. for during his senior year he pur- chased a car and journeyed to Lebanon every Sunday to take care of his charge and preach the sermons he wrote in Philosophy class.

How- ever. she soon found out that if she were going to go around with Marion she might as well learn to talk more, because listening all the time isnit so interesting. Professors and students have a difficult time getting Bessie and Marion fixed in mind. Oh, yes, they know the names, but they never get the right name and the right girl together. Bessie has been told that her name should be Elizabeth, but then she knew that without having a professor tell her .... As far as we know, there are no Moutsidew in- terests. That. however, is not the gentleman's fault. but that is aside. Bessie is a member of the Curtain Club, she really has ability. She has taken part in the dancing in the lVfay Day Pageants every spring .... She intends to teach and we know that the pupils will like her since she is so easily ruffled. RUTH M. ROTH of Allentown.

At first there doesn't seem to be much to say about Roth, for she appeared to be reticent about putting her best foot forward. ln spite of her efforts "to hide her light under a bushelv, the truth will out. Ruth is one of uthew students, burning midnight oil accompanied by strains from her radio. incidentally her pet diversion is literary work which is not confined to the campus alone, but, via U. S. mail, Philadelphia. . . . Ruth's most peculiar achievement on the campus is her punctuality in coming to meals. It is reported that within the past year she was to dinner on time as many as six times 1none of the Waiters remember the first f'ive3. Thirty to one was the betting offered among the waiters at one time that Roth would not appear before seconds were served, and even at that bets could not be obtained! . . . Despite the fact that Ruth, as a practice teacher in North Coventry, has shown some unusual means of instilling know- ledge in the younger generation, it is probable that she will soon desert the uschool-marmw business for the more fitting position, or Hcraftw, of chauffeuring a doctor on hurried calls.

As the eight o'clock bell tolls, a large funeral car wends its way up from Norris- town and turns slowly into the East drive of Ursinus College. People turn and stare at the corpse at the wheel, but lo and behold a resur- rection is held and Russo appears sleepily mak- ing his way to classes .... Being a day student. Joe has had little opportunity to enter into campus activities but has co-operated in all activities of the class. He is seen most in the class and Curtain Club productions, namely, 'LThe Ghost Train" and "Firebrand". Uwing to the experience he has gained in dramatics at col- lege we expect him to be billed at the Norris Theatre for the famous Saturday afternoon vaudeville. In athletics Joe has not participated in any varsity sports but he has been a smash- ing back on the Day Studentis football team. . . .

However, Richard was still quite troubled about his "De Senec- tuteii, but when he heard that a soccer coach had been engaged to teach this simple subject he immediately decided to manage the soccer team. As a passing thought, we might add that he-well, maybe he did not master that treach- erous subject, but who wants to master it any- way? At least, he passed it, which is an achieve- ment. If you don't believe it. try it. 7 1111 71 LAWRENCE V. SHEAR of Trenton, N. J. History-Social Science Group. Beta Sigma Lambda.

"You can't keep a good man downfi Larry roomed with the notorious "Brinker" Hill for two years and then shared his room his last two years with "Dam" Little. Then, despite these hardships, Larry, as a hobby. managed the tough wrestlers, throw- ing about guys like Bassman and Bradford by the mere use of words .... As the "Dean" of Brodbeck. displaying an almost mature atti- tude, Larry was unanimously selected honorary president of the 'QCO-a-Little Clubii, chief arbiter in the Tolomeo-Witman debates, and as the man in dorms who had even more hair on his chest than the gorilla-like Parunak. These are only a few of Larry's superlatives. In fact, some that we haven't mentioned are really virtuous. A disciple of Barnard, Bancroft and Boswell. Shear found that informal meetings with the Profs. outside of the classroom were a much better means to a liberal education than the orthodox classroom setupgand Larry is no "apple-polisher" either ....

His leanings in studies have been toward the classical types, but we have learned that his taste in feminine company does not run toward this type. ln fact, judging from the regularity of his mail from a certain place, we might infer that his social affiliations are rather up-to-date .... For the past two years Shelly has been a Freeland Nparsonw, sharing the pent- house with the Hubert-Creager-Wenner trium- virate last year and teaming up with '4Peewee', Shaffer this year ....

"Mickey" is the boy on the campus with the large smile and the chesty walk. The smile he says is all his own but the walk is gotten from spending two years in a monkey suit at Weiioriali Mili- tary Academy. On his arrival here he was promptly given the nicknames of "Military Mike" and 6'The Smiling Lieutenantw, and through his activities here on campus he has shown that his military training has helped greatly. ln his scholastic work Mike is one of the pioneers of the school as he is a member of the Physical Education Group and will be one of the first to graduate, having taken a complete course of the study. ln this he is one of the best and watching him at times swinging on the rings we have grave doubts concerning his ancestry. There is one thing we wish he could master and that is while he is in the midst of his gyrations upon the instruments he could learn to sing "On the Flying Trapeze". MAYNARD H. SMITH of Myerstown.

"Smittyi', the Myerstown lad, is one of our serious-minded students who studies during the day so that he may spend his even- ings listening to the radio, he is always ready to argue with anyone about which jazz orchestra is the best and most appealing to the public. He really has heard in person more of the "big timeia than any one else on the campus. Even in his freshman year living among the Freeland Hparsonsi' he showed worldly tendencies. His remaining college years, however, found him in more compatible company in Brodbeck as a member of the '6Hellian Clubi' .... As one of the athletes of the class, May was especially active in basketball and track. He was elected man- ager of freshman football his senior year. Car- rying a heavy schedule during the football sea- son, Smitty decided to abandon the managerial position in order to devote more time to his studies .... May is quite a language student, studying German his freshman year, Spanish the next year, French his third year, and tak- ing more German his senior year: thus earning for him the title of a linguist.

That this little borough of Collegeville could turn out such a brilliant product was never thought of. The responsibil- ity is all its own. Elmo. while not living on campus. has participated in quite a few activities of which athletics have been the majority. We had heard vague rumors of the home-town bov during our freshman year, but Elmo has such a shy and retiring nature it took us a little while to get acquainted with him. In his achievement he was well diversified. What fair maiden in this institution has not gone home with her heart beating madly because Elmo has given her one of his amorous glances or has given her the break of dancing with her. When not on the campus, Elmo may be seen at the garage rubbing elbows with the local boys. Who can tell? Some day he may be the leader of the village. or perhaps he may attain the high office of Burgess. Such an honor would be deserved for the hard work and conscientious study he has shown here. If you want a good tip. keep an eye on this boy. WILLIAM D. SPRINGER of Tamaqua. His- tory-Social Science Group. Alpha Phi Epsilon. Orchestra leader lllg Glee Club 133: Y. M. C. A. Chorus 131: College Band ll. 21g College Orchestra ll. 21 .... All hail the "tom tom" beater! Yes. this is "Wild Willie" Spring- er, our rhythm king .... Bill is to the railroads what great benefactors have been to education -a philanthropist. Although he always carries a railroad pass. which permits him to ride the trains free of charge. he insists upon paying his fare because the railroads are in such a bad financial plight. Furthermore. he has never been known to spend a week-end on the campus during his four year stay here .... Then, too. 'tWild Bills' has by some means or other man- aged to pass every course he took in college. This is a good omen for the future, for somehow or other he will get along .... He also is a great fisherman and spends many hours along the streams with hook, line and sinker, but let's not hold that against him for it is an inherited trait. If you donit believe it, just get him to tell you about Dan, the finest angler ever to cast a line .... This fondness for the great out- of-doors leads us to believe that Bill will find office work much too confining and will turn to the pick and shovel as his real vocation-prob ably digging for worms.

Many times, around Derr Hall, we llkill' a rau- cous, rampageous noise which resembles the fog- hofn of a steamer. but it is only our handsome "Dave" indulging in laughter. He has had quite a wide range of experiences on the campus, such as enjoying the company of "classical types" and walking back to Collegeville from Norris- town with his roommate, "Pope" Gregory. Dave is a consistent patron of ffWl'9L'k Hall", tripping the light fantastic and ever watching for new prospects. Nevertheless, he has always been faithful to his girl back home .... On the other hand, he has proven himself to be quite a busi- ness man on the campus. After working in the Supply Store for two years. he was chosen to he "head chiselerw his junior year and was elected Business Manager of the Weekly his senior year, showing efficiency in both depart- ments. Having been decidedly successful in all his endeavors and activities, Dave will un- doubtedly attain distinction in the business af- fairs to which he expects to devote himself after he receives the coveted sheepskin.

Lantern Staff, As- sociate Editor 143: Vice-President of the Ex- ecutive Council: Council on Student Activities 11-3: English Club 13. 13, Secretary-Treasurer 133. President 143 .... Joyce is that little girl from the Southland. Her home is Snow Hill, Md.. and right well we would know it to hear her talk with that pleasing southern accent and charming air which is so refreshing. She was born at Princess Anne, which may be the cause for that queer mixture of dignity and naivety so well blended in Joyce's nature, for she is typ- ical of what one would expect from such a birthplace .... However, Joyce is practical and ambitious. so much so that she is an outstand- ing student on campus, and a most dependable contributor to the literary publication. She is a skillful writer and her delightful portrayals of the Negro have endeared her stories to readers. Her own appreciative chuckles can be seen in all she writesg her personality is distinct and dif- ferent, for we have heard she even attends the tea parties of Miss Mary Lee Sturgis .... idealistic and practical, Joyce unites a meticu- lous and thoughtful nature with a love of beauty that will serve admirably to relieve after-office hours of a certain dentist.

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing to you the successor to the late James E. Palm, the supposedly honor- able editor of the 1933 RUBY. However, it is claimed that this year's Yearbook will be dif- ferent, and that, instead of making its appear- ance the day after Commencement, it will be on sale Commencement morning. But remember, dear readers, that is only his story, and his name is Sutin .... Albany sent Roosevelt to Wasliirigtori and Sutin to Ursinus, Roosevelt initiated the New Deal, and Sutin initiated the New RUBY. He even omitted the comic section and in its place put some sort of a rogue's gal- lery under the guise of a beauty section. Even Roosevelt wouldn't have nerve enough to attempt such a dangerous experiment. IRENE E. TAKACS of 1Vlartin's Creek. Mod- ern Language Group. Phi Alpha Psi.

Rene is the demure maiden who manages to accomplish plenty in her own tactful way. Her interests are many and varied and her abilities are noteworthy-ranging all the way from an aptitude for punning to a talent for music. As for her interests-well, they are here, there, and then here again .... Takis linguistic abilities secured for her the presidency of the newly organized French Club, her musical talent earned a reputation for her and made her a sought-after accompanist as well as an excel- lent performer, her beauty won for her recog- nition in the May Day Pageant, and her pleasing personality gained hosts of friends .... But Rene is not too good to be true. She has been known to be reticent almost to the extent of stubbornness, and her cohorts unreservedlv vouch for her streak of mischievousness. She was the unsuspected instigator of many pranks both at Lynnewood and Woodlyn, until it was discovered that, despite her innocent appearance, she had plenty of ideas. GRACE E. THOMAS of Phoenixville. Mod- ern Language Group. Student Recital 1111 .... For four years Grace has been braving the weather to span the six miles between home and collegeeon a five day week schedule. Only as a senior. however, has she been her own chauf- feur, commuting a la Ford .... Grace is primar- ily a student but she has been known to play her little pranks. The class will not soon for- get the services rendered by this dainty miss when, as a sophomore disguised in band and button, she again became a naive freshman to "listen in" at a secret class meeting .... Grace spends most of her time on campus between classes in the Library or the Day Study. She carries her extra-curricular activities in Phoe- nixville, where church interests and music oc- cupy her time. ln lighter moments. Grace is found to be endowed with a rare and infectious giggle which is a delight to all around her. This delicate sense of humor will be an advantage when Grace has joined that army of martyrs who teach high school students. MARTIN TGLOMEO of Bound Brook. X. J. Chemistry-Biology Group.

From the scraggly pines and the sand dunes of New Jersey came this youth who called himself "Marty". He came with the resolve to study medicine which we believe to be a gesture of self defense because they sure do need something in his neck of the woods to protect themselves from "them tharv mosquitoes. It did not take long after his ar- rival in civilization to acclimate himself to his surroundings. and he soon made himself one of the "Brodbeck Terrorsn. Here he led a very quiet life his first two years and did not partici- pate in campus affairs to any great extent. It was not until his junior and senior years that Marty displayed his dramatic ability and then he took part in the two principal productions. During his sophomore year he took a great interest in hiking, but that June these strolls ceased and in their place Marty has substituted week-end trips and the latest reports are that the P. 8: W. railway is going to declare stock dividends in his favor. lfgztdz f 1 Xxllff WALTER W.

"Wally" is none other than the Masked Marvel who flitted about the football field so capably for "dear old Ursinusm. He has had an athletic career that is the envy of every fellow in the College .... Tropp has been one of the noisiest inmates of "Dog House" for three years. At 5.30 every night when the third floor gets scrap- ping over the shower, he is right in the front ranks. Peace reigns, and harmonizing is the order of the day. All "Bathroom Barytonesi' are bad, and Wally is no exception .... Wally has steered clear, when possible, of extra-curri- cular activities, being content to let sleep, bridge and Betty fill his days land nightslt. Who could find a better way tespecially the latter meansl to round out twenty-four hours? . . . Tropp aspires to be an instructor. He hopes to teach the younger generation how to study and become proficient athletes at the same time. EVELYN E. VIRGIN of Oxford, N. J. Mod- ern Language Group. Chi Alpha Tau. Weekly Staff tl, 21: Music Club fl, Ztlg Woinen's De- bating Club t3, 43 g Hiking fl, 41 .... Born in New York, this saucy lady is not without that "certain touch". Her specialties are Latin and French, but that isn't to be held against her. She's Hregularm. One look at those flashing black eyes, and youfd know she can hold her own in anything .... Socially, well, Philadelphia is quite close at hand, and then thereis that mys- tic association in Shreiner known as the "Mugs fraternity". tFor further information see other members! Quite frequently Evelyn has been known to pass around boxes of candy. Well, well! . . . As for outside activities, Evelyn spent her first two years as an active member of the Music Club. After that she decided to turn her attention to more worthy pursuits and went out for debatfng and the Weekly. ln this, per- haps, one can trace the Carter influence, for it was at the home of the Carteris that she lived during her first few years at Ursinus. Evidently the historical atmosphere of that household pleased her, for when she finally did move away, she sought the next best thing-Shreiner Hall and the Dr. White influence. :STANLEY C. WEIDMAN of Sinking Spring. 'Business Administration Group. Demas .... I'Stan, who is not noticeably Dutch, comes from the thriving metropolis of Sinking Spring, Pa., near Beading. Weidriiaii says, 'fPut the window down and vake me up yet ven you go to class." . . . Stan did not join a fraternity his freshman year. lnstead, he worked hard studying his first two years, and when his junior year came around Weidriian was pledged to the Demas and has helped to raise the scholastic standing of that organization by the good marks he has received in economics, accounting, and German. . . . Stan likes modern music and, as a result of his yearning for soft Lvdian airs, he and Breisch went to Philadelphia his sophomore year, bought two radios, but didn't keep either of them .... It has been said that a college stu- dent should have at least eight hours of sleep each day but Weidriiari states that he can get twelve hours of sleep in his room without tak- ing eight classes a day at Ursinus. ln spite of this, he has been the only student in the past several years who has made 100 per cent in an accounting examination .... Weidniari intends to enter the field of business after he receives his diploma in June. JAMES M. WHARTON of Kingston. Busi- ness Administration Group. Alpha Phi Epsilon.

Jimmy really does get around with the co-eds, not centering his attention too long on any particular one .... He has roomed with Bennett in Stine Hall for four years, and has been one of the Hallis most consistent mainstays in inter-dorm basketball and bridge tournaments. Wharton is the business manager of the RUBY. and it is rumored that this may account for his having changed from his usual brand of cigar- ettes to the more expensive brands .... Jim is one of the few veteran waiters on the campus, having worked under the Welnla methods and codes supervised by our "pal" Wolfgaiig. Whar- ton, along with Deibler, Smitty, and Crevar, made up the crew acknowledged to be the best ever to have pushed a tray in the dining room. . . .

With a schedule of duties that would disarm an ordinary individual, she worked her way through four years of college, keeping a good academic standing and withal finding time for other things. Endowed with an onmivorous appetite for reading, "ls" managed to satisfy her craving in spite of a heavy routine. She has versatile abilities, being able to do everything from telling a funny story to preparing a sump- tuous banquet, or planning the supplies for a two-weeks' vacation in the Poconos for a crew of a dozen campers .... The typical Isobel, the young lady with the slow walk, unruffled ap- pearance, and the seemingly Hdon't-give-a-darn" attitude, is the person that the campus recog- nizes as the Miss Wilt who may usually be found sitting at the librarian's desk reading a novel or telling some student why the book he wants is out. Because of the time-consuming character of her library work, ls learned to do something that every student at some time in his college career anticipates doing-budget time .... Well. couldn't you admire a woman like that? VIOLET M. WINTERSTEEN of Port Car- bon. English Croup. Chi Alpha Tau.

It was not the beautiful campus, the football team, or the abundance of handsome men that attracted Vi to Ursinus. She carrie to Collegeville as a freshman with the avowed intention of studying, and even after four years she maintains that she prefers studying to anything else offered here. If Vi were inclined to give other things a place prior to her studies, we are told that she would have gone to Penn State rather than to Ursinus. With the existing arrangement, how- ever, both 1he and shel get more studying done. . . . Ever calm and cool, even as a freshman carrying laundry kits from Fircroft, Vi might be selected as the typical girl of that hall. Easy- going 1as a rulel, she had a way of consistently getting things done, even if she had to do them herself .... Vi visits Port Carbon and State College rather frequently, but then why shouldn't she? Studying all the time isn't Good for anyone. C1 JOHN G. YERGAT of Perkiornenville.

He is known sometimes as the "Facul- tv Impersonator", but what embarrassment one day when the one he was impersonating hap- pened to appear on the scene twas my face red?l .... This is not the whole of John Cfs inherent abilities. Did you ever hear him sing? You know he has been the bulwark of the Col- lege Choir and the College Clee Club for four years. He is known to the day students as the "Torch-Singer", and "Captain of the Glee Clubv. They think he wants to be another Rudy Vallee or Bing Crosby because of his warbling of sweet nothings. His voice is so powerful that the Clee Club and Choir use John as the anchorman. Miss Hartenstine will certainly miss John. fini, I "iv Y,,g-v' fFF"l 'W ,. ,yn A .

HEIGES, '35 IN THE YEARS since Dr. Omwake became President of Ursinus College, the development of literary activities has kept pace with the rapid progress of the College as a whole. The keynote of literary development has been its specialization into various departments, and the resulting increase of value to the students which results from concentration of effort. Four mediums of literary expression were open to the Ursinus students of twenty years ago: the RUBY. the Weekly. the literary societies and the oratorical contests. To compare the RUBY and the Weekly of today with those of twenty years ago is the best method of showing the vast change. Then, the yearbook was published by the junior class of the College. There were fewer activities to be covered, but they were discussed almost as completely as is done today. This RUBY is a much larger book and is carried out more elaborately DR. J. SHELLY WEINBBRG1-:R. First Dean of Ursinus College 41870-19031 giving address at dedication of Freeland Portico, 1913. than its distant predecessors, and reflects the life of the College rather than the activities of a particular class. The Weekly of 1912 and that of the present have more dissimilarities than like- nesses. It was then a four-page paper, but had only four columns on a page, which was hardly more than a foot long. The initial fall issue of the Weekly in 1914 brought with it for the Hrst time Dr. Omwake's column, The Tower Window, which has become one of the distinctive parts of the paper. For several years this publica- tion consisted of eight pages, having three columns on a page. ln 1928 the Weekly was increased to its present size. The Weekly has been, for many years, a member of the Intercollegiate News- paper Association, and the National College Press Association. The Zwinglian and the Schaff Literary Societies were once vital factors in the 120 extra-curricular life of the institution. Their programs, given on Friday night of each week, consisted chiefly of debates, musical selections, essays, readings, and plays. In 1928 these societies ceased their activities. Their functions are now performed in a more specialized man- ner by such organizations as the English Club, the Clee Club, the debating clubs. the Curtain Club, the Inter- national Relations Club, and the Lantern. About twenty years ago interest in oratory was at its height. Ursinus was then a member of the Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Oratorical Union. Another event of this nature that caused much interest and in which many participated was the Junior Oratorical Contests, on Com- mencement Weeks. Both of these contests have passed from our campus, the last Junior Oratorical Contest hav- ing been held in 1931. Those who might have been interested in oratory now have ample opportunity to develop their talents in intercollegiate debating. The Womens Debating Club and the menis debating organization, the Webster Foren- sic Club, are open to all students, and it is from these organizations that the debating teams are chosen. Membership in Tau Kappa Alpha, the only national honorary fraternity on the campus, is the reward for excellence in this field. The latest addition to this group of literary activities came in the spring of 1933 when the first issue of the Lantern. a publication containing poems, book reviews, essays, and short stories appeared. The idea of a literary Z7 ,.,..,p0v"' DR. ROBERT M. Ylimilcs, tllrsinus '97I. Professor of Psychology at Yale, with Du.

After a study of publications of this type in other colleges, it was established here in response to student demand. Ursinus now has a well-rounded group of activities and publications which are competent mediums for literary expression. As the College has grown. its literary publications have progressed to meet ever-changing and increasing needs. Class of 1916 tree planting and tree oration, HAROLD B.

On September 26, 1902, it timidly appeared for the first time, in the form of a four-column, four-page paper, much shorter in length than at present. Previous to that time, the College had published a monthly bulletin, which was very limited in space, and which contained no real news. For the first year, the editorial and business staffs combined totalled only nine members. The purpose of the paper as set forth in its initial issue has been fol- THE STAFF GREGORY PFAHLER DONALSON HAGEMAN SCHNEBLY GRIM M HEIGES HORNE GIVANT GRING BRIAN SHIVELY 'GLASSMOYER KASSAB COOPER FRANCIS RAPPOPORT ALSPACH E1-:LY MCBRIDE BEDDOW EVANS HAUSMANN FOX HARBALICH MYERS ALBRICHT BRUBAKER THOMAS STEPHENSON 122 lowed, in general, since that time. "We want the Ursinus Weekly to be the voice of Ursinus College. As a staff we shall attempt to make it so." Although the paper of thirty years ago is widely different from that of today, there are excellent evidences of continuity: the list of new freshmen, the college calendar, the numerous alumni notes, and the football write-up in the upper right-hand corner of the front page were omnipresent from the first issue of I902 to the first of 1933. During the last year the Weekly has continued its develop- ment with many improvements, including larger heads, better front-page make-ups, and occasional six-page issues. The busi- ness and circulation staffs have been re-organized and enlarged so as to secure trained men to assume the positions of the retiring heads, and to perform efficiently the increasing duties of these departments. In the editorial department alone, twenty-eight students have been at work all year. In the matter of finances, the Weekly has not escaped the effects of the depression. However, after a year and a half of absence, the cigarette ads again made their appearance in the paper to tide it over the bad days. To a much greater degree than in most colleges, the Weekly has been free from faculty censorship, a privilege that has not been abused. Under Dwight L. Gregory's careful and able editor- ship, the Weekly has proved itself to be an adequate medium for student expression. and a worthy publicity agent for the College. It has been a direct factor in securing improvements around the College, including better meals and the lessening of cheating in examinations.

To present "the chief events of the present academic year and such information concerning our organization as we thought properw, was the purpose of the founding of the annual by the Class of '97, according to its editor, Robert Mearns Yerkes this picture occurs elsewhere in the 1934 RUBY.l The new publication was called MTHE RUBYT in honor of one of Ursinus' faculty members, Dr. Samuel Vernon Ruby, professor of English Language and Literature, and of Social Science, who had recently died. Eleven members were on the staff of the first annual, which consisted of one-hundred and sixty pages, only thirteen of which were devoted to sports. Throughout the intervening thirty-eight years the RUBY, now a senior publication, has functioned as a medium whereby a composite view of each year's activities can be obtained. During this period, the RUBY has progressed so that it can give an accurate and connected history of the growth of the College, mainly in pictures supplemented by brief write-ups. The 1934 RUBY is one of restrospection. It relates the origin and history of most of the organizations on the campus, showing how, from obscure beginnings, most of them have become integral and indispensable parts of the Ursinus tradition, because of their increasing usefulness to the students. The RUBY has not been lagging in this march of progress. This, the latest edi- tion, was thoughtfully planned, and has been executed with care. It is larger in length and breadth than previous editions, and contains the pictures of all students and faculty members. This RUBY. more pretentious and wider in scope than its predecessors, reflects-accurately the growth of Ursinus. RUBY BUSINESS STAFF HERSHEY HENSCHEI.

From volume one to volume fifteen, which appeared last fall, this publication has 'fkept the noiseless tenor of its way." The Handbook has always presented a brief outline of the activities of campus organizations -literary, athletic, religious, social, and miscel- laneous-messages to the new class fI'OIIl stu- dent leaders and faculty members, advertising, and other information useful to freshmen. It is really published for incoming students, rather than for the three upper classes, and is mailed in advance to the newcomers, To Cyrus H. K. Curtis, the latest edition of the Handbook was dedicated. It was, however, very stereotyped in that it carried over most of its material from the year previous, with prac- tically no improvements.

Ursinus' official football magazine, and the latest addition to the roster of campus publications, made its appearance last October. It is more than merely a football program, since it serves as an athletic IIIaga- zine as well, in that it contains discussions of other sports of the College. For each of Ursinus home games-with St. Joseph's, Dickinson, Muhlenberg, and Swarthmore-the content of the Grizzly Gridder was completely changed. The twenty-four page issues, published by the Varsity Club, sold for the usual price of a quarter, although students were privileged to buy copies of it for fifteen cents in the evening before each game. The content of the new publication was extremely appropriate, because the magazine celebrated the fortieth anniversary of the first football game at Ursinus, and traced in various ways the develop- ment of football here during the intervening years. Up-to-the minute editorials, appropriate poems of a humorous and serious nature, varied pictures, well-arranged features, and excellent print- ing hel ed to make this -fenerall recognized as one of the out- Z1 i P za Y to standing college football magazines of 1933.

A faculty committee has spent several months in studying the use and operation of literary magazines in other colleges. Following its report and the presentation of a petition signed by an overwhelming majority of students favoring it, the faculty approved the establish- ment of this new publication. To govern the tri-annual magazine, a council of three faculty members, selected annually by the faculty, and six students, elected at the end of each school year by the out-going council, was set up. Since literary contributions are solicited from the student body as a whole, the duties of the staff are more of an editorial than of a reportorial nature. 128 MEN'S DEBATING CLUB HE1oEs SUTIN COOPER GI,Assmox'En SIIELLY lc-lARBAl 'CH Clnfrzom' SHOLLENB'-:m:ER IRVING E.

IN THE FALL of 1920, representatives of the Schaff and Zwinglian Literary Societies met with a committee appointed by the Faculty to lay plans for the forma- tion of teams for intercollegiate debating. This group agreed that six men should be selected from each society and try-outs should be held to eliminate four from that number. This was the beginning of debating at Ursinus. The first intercollegiate debate was held with U. of P. in Bomberger, February 25, 1922. 129 29 fi Nlxlfitll X cf Xu 71 f The lV1en's Debating Club, also known as the Webster Forensic Club, now has as its primary purpose the selection of members for the men's debating teams. All men students are eligible for membership. and all those coming out for the teams are given a chance to debate. , The 1931 debating season opened with a radio debate with U. of P. on January 13. The question debated was: 4'Reso1ved that the Agricultural Adjustment Act is economically sound." The Ursinus representatives, upholding the affirmative side, won the decision which was delivered by the radio audience. ln pursuance of the regular schedule, two questions were undertaken this season: g'Resolved that the essential features of the NIRA should be adopted as the permanent policy of the National Governmentv: and L'Resolved that the Federal Government should own and operate all banking institutions." 111 the majority of these contests, the Oregon plan. a method of debating following courtroom procedure, was used. Among the colleges debated this year were Lincoln University, Franklin and Marshall. Wester'11 Maryland, Gettysburg, Bucknell Junior College, Wagner, Rutgers, Moravian. Lehigh. Albright, Susquehanna. Shippensburg, Muhlenberg and Drexel. The teams were composed of the following men: affirmative NRA-Jesse G. Heiges '35. E. Kermit Harbaugh '36, and Thomas P. Glassmoyer '36g negative NRA- Dwight L. Gregory '31. lrving E. Sutin '34, Rubin Levin '36, and Clyde F. Straub '35: the affirmative banking-H. Allen Cooper '35, and Elmer W. 1. Schmitt '36g and the negative banking-Paul R. Shelly '36, Thomas 1. Beddow '36, and Abe E. Lipkin 137. Professor Harvey L. Carter was the coach of the teams, and Manager Norman W. Shollenberger '31, prepared the schedule of debates. WOMEN'S DEBATING CLUB THF WOIIIEHHS Debating Club dates back to 1924, when at a petition of the women students of the College. the faculty granted them the right to participiate in intercollegiate debating. 1n accord with one of the provisions of this privilege that a coach should be engaged, Dr. Elizabeth B. Wlrite was appointed to that position and has held it ever since with the exception of one season. The chief purpose for the organization of the club was to choose and train members for the women's debating teams. ln addition, the club offers excellent practice in public argumentation and self-expression. 130 As did the men debaters, the women this year debated two questions, the NRA and the government ownership of banks. Included in the schedule for the women's teams were Swarthmore, Elizabethtown, Westerii Maryland, Mt. St. Josephs, Temple, Lebanon Valley, Cedar Crest, and Moravian. The girls who participated in varsity debates were Sara Brown '31, Sylvia Liverant ,34, Mildred Fox '35, Maude Funk '35, Alice Richard '35, Agnes Baker '36, Dora Evans '36, Elizabeth Kassab '36, Nancy Pugh '36, and Thelma Smith '36. H. Nadine Jones i34, acted as varsity manager. Only upper class women are eligible to participate in intercollegiate debates. Freshman girls seeking membership in the club are organized into teams separately and have a schedule of their own. Jane Stephen '35, was coach of freshman girls for the past season.

This fraternity has for its purpose the recognition of excellence in public speaking and the promotion of intercollegiate debating and oratorical contests. lts members are elected upon fulfilling certain requirements of participation in debates as representatives of Ursinus in competition with other colleges. Both men and women students who show proficiency in debating are eligible to membership. ln addition to providing an impetus to local debating activities, the Ursinus Chapter of Tau Kappa Alpha gives the College representation nationally in this widely-known and highly esteemed honorary fraternity. 132 COLLEGE FUNCTIONS COUNCIL ON STUDENT ACTIVITIES MEN'S STUDENT COUNCIL WOMEN'S STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSUN YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION YOUNG WOMENIS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION THE CURTAIN CLUR 0 THE MUSIC CLUR THE COLLEGE CHOIR 0 MENOS GLEE CLUR COLLEGE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA THE COLLEGE RAND I.

This Council is composed of five faculty members appointed by the President of the college and one representative from every recognized organization on the campus. Fraternities and sororities are represented by one member from the Inter- fraternity Council and one member from the Intersorority Council. The purpose is to regulate on campus the social activities of the entire student body in order to avoid any possible confusion of dates and to supervise Recreation I-Iall.

All girls of the college are members of it, but the Association is represented by a Council composed of a President, Vice- President, Treasurer, Secretary, and one Representative from each of the following: Senior Class, Junior Class, and Day Study. The officers of the Association are elected by the women students, and the three representatives are elected by the groups from which they come. "The object of the W. S. G.

Student leaders are usually in charge of the program. However. when an unusual students' program is planned, or an interesting speaker is obtained, the Y. lVI. and Y. W. sponsor a joint meeting. The officers are elected by the women students before the end of each school year. The new president then appoints her cabinet which consists of chairmen of the various connnittees. Une of the interesting functions of this organization is to introduce the fresh- man girls to campus life through the Big Sister method. Each freshman girl has a Big Sister, an upper-class girl whose duty is to explain campus situations, and to act as advisor and friend to her Little Sister throughout the first year of her college life. ln addition to the foregoing. there are various conferences on and off campus, which the Y.

It was re-organized in 1930 from the Dramatic Club of previous years. At the first meeting of the club in the fall of 1933. new oflicers shouldered their responsibilities and a new constitution was read before the members. ln this. membership was definitely qualified. Each fall general try-outs are held for proba- tion membership. Those succeeding enter into full membership only when they have taken part in any of the plays produced by the club. Any member appearing in two plays or serving on three committees is entitled to a key which denotes this service. Concentrating directly on dramatic art. the Club produces, among other selec- tions, two annual plays-the Schaff and the Zwinglian Anniversary plays. Among these in the past have been '4The Royal Family". "The Thirteenth Chair", "The Black Flamingo", HThe Young ldeaw, and most recent, "The Eirebrandm. The productions are most efficiently and successfully coached by Mr. and Mrs. Reginald S. Sibbald. who are honorary members of the Curtain Club. The club, supporting its purpose and exemplifying the art of drama. ranks among the most interesting and worthwhile of campus activities. and is ordained to reach even greater heights of success. 139 X 2.4 1,7 MR!! 'I "Tl-IE YOUNG IDEA" GQTHE YDUNC IDEA", a delightful and amusing play by Noel Coward, added to the successes of the Curtain Club in the spring of 1933. Ably coached by Professor and Mrs. Sibbald, the cast succeeded in portraying the sophisticated story of married life in the upper levels of English society. George Brent, divorced from his first wife. Jennifer. re-married, and, with his new partner. Cicily, had settled down on an old English estate. Here the uneventful life began to pall on Cicily. who sought to escape boredom by indulging in an amorous attachment with young Rodney Masters. Although aware of this affair, Brent was unwilling A. Dowinzs QVAY to interfere as long as it created no scandal. C' Too independent to admit her secret devotion to Brent, Jennifer, residing in italy, passed her time writing novels. Their children, Gerda, 18, and Sholto, 20. sensing the real situation, cleverly schemed to re-unite their father and mother. Affecting innocence they succeeded in forcing the elopement of Cicily and Rodney, Brent, now free from any responsibility to Cicily, was finally urged by Gerda and Sholto to return to Jennifer. Meanwhile, Hiram J. Walke1', a wealthy American, had fallen in love with Jennifer who had accepted him shortly before the unexpected arrival of Brent. Jennifer's subsequent announcement of her intention to remarry presented a new problem to the children. Eventually, because of wild stories invented by Cerda and Sholto, Walker' raged out of Jennifer's life. A happy reconciliation between Brent and Jennifer followed. The cast was composed of: Charles Gompert '33, Margaret Deger -33, Dolores Quay ,3fl-, Walter' Welsh 333, Dorothy Patterson 735, Clair Hubert '33, Charles Kraft 33, Jeanette Baker '33, Elmer Morris '33, Gladys Urich '33, Montgomery Weidner '36 Elizabeth Krusen 736, Williarii Evans 735, and Louella Mullin '33. 9 The play, which was given on the evening of the Saturday on which May Day was held, was well attended by an appreciative audi- ence. Dolores Quay, as Cerda, and Dorothy Patterson, who took the difficult role of Cicily, carried their parts most effectively. WILLIAM H. EVANS Donorm' F. PATTERSON 1-10 "THE FIREBRANDN WTHE FIREBRANDT by Edwin Justus Mayer, coached by Mr. and Mrs. Sibbald, is based upon the autobiography of the fascinating artist and villain, Benvenuto Cellini. The action of the play takes place in Florence and its environs. Cellini, artist favored by church and state. returns to his workshop from a re- cent exploit. He realizes his love for Angela, his model, but is in danger of his life as the Duke arrives to punish him. The Duke, attracted to Angela, postpones the execution of Cellini and takes the model to the summer palace. The artist, deprived of his love, is visited by the Duchess, whom he arranges to meet at the summer palace. Meanwhile Ottaviano. the Duke's cousin, unsuccessfully seeks to involve Cellini in a plot to slay the Duke. Upon the return of the Duchess to the summer palace, many amusing situa- tions arise in which the Duke and the Duchess alike are deprived of their illicit loves. Cellini finally recovers Angela and returns to the city. lVleanwhile Ottaviano accuses Cellini of a plot against the Dukeis life. .4 4 if I 5 i f ., e i S Aff ,- A Q' .1 RUB1iR'l' Ll.

THE CAST 141 W WA THE MUSI CLUB BRVBAKIQR NEAST TAKACS LEVIN ABOUT FIVE years ago. Miss Jeanette Douglas Hartenstine organized the Ursinus College Music Club in order to bring together the members of all the choral associa- tions of the College. This newly formed organization was made up of those stu- dents singing in the Clee Club. the Choir, and the College Chorus. Although most of the choral programs of the College are given separately by these three units of the Music Club, the club usually puts on several programs in its own name. The most outstanding and unique feature presented this year was the broadcast'ng program given last November when a concert held in the vocal studios was transmitted by means of loud speakers to an audience assembled in Bomberger Hall. The Christmas Dawn Service, which was held on the last day before the Christmas vacation and which was one of the most successful ever held at Ursinus. was also a presentation of the Music Club. Miss Hartenstine is the direc- tor of all programs given by that body. l President Ross-MARIE BRUBAKER '34 Vz'ce-Presirlenz' BETTY M. NEAST '31- Secrelar-if IRENE E.

For a long time it remained a rather small body, but upon the arrival of Miss Hartenstine as the head of the music department in 1922, it was enlarged and improved. The past year has been marked by a yery noticeable increase in interest in the Choir. The main function of the College Choir is the conduction of the musical part of the daily chapel services. This includes not only the singing of the prelude and the hymns, but also vocal solos by individual members of the group. The Choir takes part in many special services held at Ursinus. lVlembership in the organiza- tion is open to any student in the College who is interested in or has a desire to belong.

Never before during the eleven years of its existence has this organiza- tion had such excellent material with which to work, and along with the improved quality of the voices, there came a greater interest in general on the part of both its members and the rest of the student body. The Ursinus College Clee Club, which is made up entirely of men, was first organized in l922 under the supervision of Miss Jeanette Douglas Hartenstine. who had just entered the College as the director of all choral music. Varied concerts are prepared and given in the nearby communities at intervals during the college year. It is a noteworthy fact that during the past year more programs were given than ever before. The season was begun with two concerts, the tirst of which was held at Mc.-Allisteifs Banquet Hall in Philadelphia. and the second at the Methodist lfpiscopal Church in Hoxborough.

Although in the past attempts have been made to form string ensembles, this is the first time that an entire symphony orchestra has been organized. The orchestra is under the direction of Mr. J. W. F. Leman of Philadelphia, a former member of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Leman is not only the teacher of many well-known artists of that city but also the director of many outstanding orchestras, including the WOIIICHQS Symphony Orchestra of Philadelphia and the Frankford Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra was begun with a small group of students, but the director hopes to build it, within a few years, into a full-sized body that will include all the necessary instruments. Many of the odd instruments, such as the bassoon. the oboe. and the french horn, are still lacking. Under Mr. Leman's direction, a diversified program will be prepared. Wheri his plans have been completed. regular concerts will be given at the College and in nearby communities.

This group is an honorary organization with membership limited to the junior and senior pre-medical students who have attained a scholastic average of eighty-two or above. The oflicers of the Society are three in number. They are a president, vice- president, and a secretary-treasurer. The first two offices are held by seniors and the last by a junior. These officers are elected by the Society at large. A Program Committee of three members is appointed. This body maps out programs for the entire year, selects all the speakers, and has complete charge of the programs. Professor J.

The first officers of the group were William Evans, presidentg Naaman Barr, vice- presidentg and Paul Steinman, secretary. The founders of the society planned, by this means, "to develop an interest in chemical research and educa- tional chemistry, and to foster high standards of intellectual achievement among its membersf' They also aimed to present recent chemical discoveries and achievements as supplementary to the work given in college courses. These aims are accomplished by study of scientific periodicals, by lectures given by outstanding industrial and educational chemists, and by visual training through the medium of motion pictures. Membership in the organization is limited to those students planning to enter chemical or other related fields of science, all prospective members must have completed at least one semester of work in college chemistry.

A group of twenty Students met on February 21, 1929, to lay plans for the organization, which was formally established in April of that year. During the five years of its existence, the club has progressed in a great measure due to the interest and effort of Dr. E. B. White, its faculty advisor. Clubs of this type exist in scores of colleges through- out the eastern part of the country, and are centralized by a permanent bureau in New York City. The local branch is furnished each year with books on international affairs, by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. These now total thirty, and have been turned over to the library from time to time after the club has used them. On several occasions the International Relations Club has invited the College to open meetings of the organization, at which time men of prominence in public life were the speakers. These speakers have included: in 1930, Pierre de Lannux. director of the Paris Information Office of the League of Nationsg and in 1931, Sir Herbert Ames, eminent Canadian statesman and economist, and former treasurer of the League of Nations. 5 During the five years of their existence, the interna- HE1cEs tionalists have always endeavored to hold their meetings JoNEs in the form of round-table discussions. In order to further WILFCJNG this purpose, the club has adopted the policy of centering its reports and papers at each meeting around not more than two topics. This was done in order to secure more discussion and to view, as far as possible, all sides of a question. 1934 Allan Claghorn R. Nadine Jones Helen Lewis Esther B. Lightner Dorothy L.

Good, the Brotherhood of Saint Paul has had an interesting and rather lengthy existence as the official organization of the students on the campus who are preparing for the Christian ministry. This year, under the presidency of George E. Herbert, the Brotherhood has held regular meetings for the purpose of giving its members opportunity to prepare and present devotional and other messages in preparation for their future lives in the ministry. At these meetings the Lordis Prayer has been considered, phrase by phrase, with especial consideration of its implications in the lives of ministers and ministerial students. The organization has conducted a number of services in churches of several denominations in the Philadelphia area. For the conduct of these services an efficient deputation team was organized, and this group has offered excellent opportunities for practical experience to the members. 150 DEMAS ea ALPHA PHI BPSILGN BETA SIGMA LAMBDA 0 SIGMA BHD LAMBDA ZETA CHI GREEK LETTER SOCIETIES PHI ALPHA PSI o ALPHA GHI LAMBDA ALPHA SIGMA NU 0 CHI ALPHA TAU SIGMA OMEGA GAMMA 0 TAU SIGMA GAMMA jgzt n INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL Hl'IIiSHliX' SHEAR CuNN1NcHAM BREISCH O'DoNNELL CARR FAR1As HEIGES KNITDSEN BRIAN President . .

Brian IN ORDER to secure co-operation and understanding among the five fraternities of the College, the lnterfraternity Council was formed during the school year of 1928-29. It consists of ten men, each fraternity electing two, a junior and a senior. from among its members. The officers of the organization consist of a President and a Secretary-Treasurer. who must be from the same fraternity. By a definite rotation among the fraternities, which was established several years ago, it was determined which representatives should become the officers of the Council for each succeeding year. Representatives from Zeta Chi have held the two offices this year. and will be succeeded by the men from the Beta Sigma Lambda Fraternity next fall. Changes in the rushing rules and in the bidding of new men constituted the major work of the Council during the past year. No fraternity member may now communicate with a new man relative to his becoming a member of any fraternity until the day after the opening of the second semester. Members of the Inter- fraternity Council may question freshmen at any time during the year as to whether there has been any illegal rushing. The enforcement of the new rules exemplifies the Council's function of securing unity of action and fairness in all fraternity matters. 152 DEMAS THE DEMAS Fraternity, which is the oldest on the Ursinus campus, was organ- ized in 1923. Included among the charter members are MacDonald Hhoem, Roland Wismer, William B. Stafford, Charles Yankey. and H. Ralph Graber. Besides tlIe regular bi-weekly meetings, several social functions are given throughout the college year. A stag for campus members alone is held in the fall. and a reunion and formal dinner dance for both alumni aIId undergraduates is given directly before the Christmas holidays. This year Dernas instituted the custom of holding an Annual Spring Formal and a stag reunion during graduation week. WEIDRIAN SMITH BREISCH SHOLLENBERGER SCHNABI-JI.

Previous to that time the five men who were charter members of the fraternity belonged to an informal club, which became the basis of the new fraternity. It was established formally under the name of Rho Delta Rho as a binding organization of Ursinus men having similar aims and ideals. ln the Spring of 1933, the name of the frater- nity was changed to Zeta Chi. To keep its alumni informed of the fraternity's activities, Zeta Chi sends a record of its progress to them four times a year.

INTERSORORITY COUNCIL l LUTHER OUDERKIRK Quin' EISENBERG REMSBVRC NEAST WINTERSTEEN MYERS Fox WILT BROWN LYLE IN 1930 the faculty of Ursinus College recognized sororities and fraternities. At the time the Intersorority Council was organized. The primary purpose of this Council is to regulate all matters concerning sororities as a group. Its goal is the establishment of a better spirit among the various sororities and also between the College and these organizations. All officers of the Intersorority Council are elected with the exception of the president. Every six years lots are drawn for this ofiice so that each sorority will be represented at some time. The presidency is then filled by rotation. Rushing rules for freshmen and upperclass girls were drawn up by the Council. These are all the time being perfected. Members of the Council include the president and vice-president of each sorority. The members may be from any of the classes.

When sororities were officially recognized at Ursinus in 1929, Alpha Phi Larnbda, which soon took the name of Phi Alpha Psi, was organized. It is now a social organization of girls with mutual interests who desire to profit from one an- other's acquaintance and to be a credit to Ursinus.

In 1926, when a group of Ursinus College women decided to organize around a common set of ideals, this society came into existence. The fundamental idea of its founders was that a person is tremendously influenced by what he believes, and in accordance with that idea, they expressed in the constitution of the sorority only those ideals and aims which demand the best from its members.

At later meetings the constitution was drawn up and approved, and the sorority has continued as a well-organized and smooth functioning group. lbs qw YU' gm QUAY FRoscH LPTHER PF.-XHLER BLEVV KITCHEN PATTERSON SIP!-I Mc.M'ox' XICFADDI-IN CoDsHALL KIIITSEN ZXIACADABIS Gmini Ex'ANs CARRETT President . .

For a few weeks they met every night, informally, making a constitution, bv-laws. and rules for the initiation ceremony. At the same time there were nine girls in South Hall who had for some time formed a social group but were not organized. These two groups united as one under the name of Sigma Omega Gamma. The first formal meeting was held in Olevian November 5, 1929. and the sorority was officially organized. Alice Hodges was the first president of Sigma Omega Gamma. The purpose of the sorority is to form more perfect friendships. establish last- ing connections on the campus, and perpetuate high ideals both as a group and individually.

May 5. 1933. was the date: 9 p. m. to l a. m. was the timeg and despite the inclement weather. it was a fine occasion and a huge success. Everyone who attended and danced to the music of Jack Miles and his "Band of Bands" was more than pleased and heard one of the finest orchestras ever to appear at an Ursinus dance. Through the efforts of the committee, the Thompson-Cay Gymnasium had been transformed into a veritable ice palace by the snow and ice decoration motif. The decorations and lighting system were unique. The frigid white background. display- ing many silhouettes of winter sports enthusiasts, blended well with the indirect blue lighting effect. The black and white scheme with the blue lights and the colorful formal attire made an effective Promenade. The amplifying system of the orchestra was unique and gave the gymnasium a typical ballroom atmosphere. Many novelty arrangements, specialty numbers. a capable blues singer. and the brass quartet proved to be exceptionally popular. Prolonged applause indicated that Jack Miles and his Band had made a hit and had met with the approval of all the hundred couples present. The Junior Prom was one of the biggest events of the 1932-33 social season, and the only regrettable thing was that tl1e evening was so short. The Patrons and Patronesses of the evening were: DR.

Their fellow passengers are an old maid much averse to liquor, and a young man, Teddie Deakin, whose actions are thoroughly misunderstood. Attempts to bribe the station master to take them to the next town are unavailing, and he further adds to their plight by telling them the local fear of the ghost train, the sight of which drives men insane or kills them outright. Laughing at his story they prepare to spend the night in the station when Julia Price enters. begging their protection. A young woman with hallucinations concerning the ghost train, she in- sists upon seeing it much to the chagrin of her father, John Price, and her doctor John Sterling. Excitement runs riot when the sound of an ap- proaching train is heard and all the signals de- scribed by the station master, Saul, are seen. As the train pulls into the station shots are heard and the mystery is solved by Deakin who, in reality, is a detective. DAUU R. STEPHENSUN General Chairnmn Julia, Price, and Sterling are the pawns of a gang of dope smugglers. Capital- izing a local tradition of a ghost train, they seek to frighten the stranded passengers, but the detective is too clever for them and they are caught. The love affairs of both the Murdocks and the Vlfinthrops are untangled before the final curtain. Such is the story of the Junior Play but not of its production. A month or more of untiring effort on the part of the committee and the coaches made the play a success. Our bow of gratitude and appreciation goes to Mr. and lVIrs. Reginald Sibbald for their kindly training. 175 Mind: T 7 ik!! Vt MAY DAY - 1933 MAYY DAY-a sun momentarily peeking and peering from behind threatening clouds-the gathering audience clutching umbrellas-drip, drip-rain! The color- ful procession advanced from the library to the green as the sun blazed forth, and the umbrellas were forgotten. Classic Muses with their attendants descended a stately staircase banked with greens. , The villagers gathered in the town square to celebrate the birth of their famous countrynian, Richard Wagner. With the arrival of the May Queen and her court, entertainment ran riot. The Burgomeister, as the master of ceremonies, introduced a scene from "Die Walkure" in which Brunhelde attempted to save Sieglinde from their father's wrath, and another from uDie Meistersingeri' in which Walther won the hand of Eva, the prize offered to the winner of the contest. A group of soldiers presented a drill but were bewitched by the Spring Maidens and later became prey to the Slumber-folk. The villagers and the little Bear, Ursinus, danced for the May Queen. At last the May Queen was crowned and led down the green where she was pelted with flowers. On the arm of the Burgomeister, she left the square followed by her court and the villagers all singing W3gHCI',S 'Spinning Songw. The Muses ascended the staircase. Music, last of all, set free a white dove which soared into the blue over the heads of the audience and away into the distance. May Day was over! 176 INFORMAL VIEWS OF MAY DAY Center HELEN G.

BRIAN '35 Two decades ago Ursinus was as highly developed athletically in comparison with other colleges as it is today. ln 1914, baseball was the outstanding Ursinus sport. Football, the one fall sport, ranked Second, and, with tennis, rounded out the College athletic program. Baseball, played at Ursinus almost from the time the College was established, had a banner year in 1914. Then, it was regarded as Hthe major sportwg but as the years went by. it gradually surrendered its foremost position to football. The gridiron sport cont'nued to be subordinate to baseball until the early twenties. ln 1922, for the first time, the RUBY considered football important enough to have individual pictures of the players and to give it the NN0. 1" position in the athletic section, a custom which has been followed ever since. Basketball, the third sport on the campus, made its debut in 1915, that year, seven players represented the College, playing in a makeshift field cage. THE CHEERING SECTION A SCORE or YEARS Aco Before 1920, Ursinus' participation in track was limited to interclass meets and the occasional entrance of relay teams in the Penn Relays. ln the late uteensw, in fact, track had relapsed to a position of inactivity. During that same time, tennis, with over one-quarter of the students subscribing to the Ursinus Tennis Association, an organ- ization sponsoring intramural tennis, was developing into an intercollegiate sport. The Athletic Association purchased new grounds in 1920 so that the athletic facilities for the students might be increased. ln 1924, Ursinusi athletic symbol, the Grizzly Bear, was adopted. lmpetus was given to women's athletics when the Women's Athletic Association was founded in the early twenties "in order to put womenis athletic activities on a par with menis athleticsf' At present, hockey, basketball, and tennis comprise the com- petitive women's athletics on the campus, and letters are awarded to deserving players, as in lH6H,S athletics. 186 OUR FOOTBALL TEAM-1908 Both track and tennis suffered a relapse till 1926. In recent years, improved physical facilities have aided the new uAthletics for all" policy. A new cinder track has enabled the trackmen to abandon the nearby roads on which they formerly prac- ticed, new tennis courts were built, the basketball team has been provided with an adequate playing floorg and the improvements on Patterson and Longstreth fields have increased their utility. During 1929-31, cross country, wrestling, and soccer were added to the sports roster. Since 1929, Ursinus has twice produced a championship team in the Eastern Pennsylvania Football Conference, has twice annexed the Conference cross country crown, and has captured the track and field title once. ln glancing over the development of Ursinus athletic teams since Dr. Omwake became president of the College, itmight be said that the advance made by the College in athletics has been, on the whole, a significant one.

Judging from the Ursinus team's showing in the first five games, one might say that it was highly success- ful. On the other hand, three defeats sustained in the last four games at the hands of teams against whom the Bears were pre-game favorites tend to detract heavily from the excellent early season showing. Four victories, three defeats, and two ties comprised the record of Jack McAvoy's hard-lighting Bears. Ursinus registered 79 points to their opponents' 44, and scored at least one touchdown in every contest except the Muhlenberg fray, which was lost by a 3-0 margin. The highest score made against them was by Albright in the final game, fourteen points to seven for Ursinus. ln the hardest Conference game of the season, Gettysburg barely nosed out the Grizzly gridders in a 13-12 thriller. Ursinusis most decisive win was a 20-0 conquest of St. Joseph's, but the outstanding victory of the season was the 6-0 victory the Bears registered over their ancient rival, F. Sz lVI. It would be hardly fair to say that the team suffered a severe let-down after the brilliant 7-7 tie it played at Villanova in the opening game. Judging from com- parative scores in the remaining games, Ursinus did not do as well as it did in the opening fracas. However, it m.ght be said that practically all the other teams the Bears played, especially the Conference Teams, pointed for them because of their remarkable showing at Villanova. This made matters all the harder for the com- paratively green team, with an almost all-sophomore lineg to say nothing of the fact 190 that the reserve strength was noticeably Weak, only 28 men being on the squad. Nevertheless, the 1933 football team deserves commendation for its performance during the season. Seven seniors will be lost to next year's team, the most severe loss being that of Captain Wally Tropp, one of the most dangerous halfbacks in the Conference. Detwiler, Shuman, Seiple, Breisch, Sommers, and Bennett also Wound up their Ursinus gridiron careers last Thanksgiving Day. Coaches lVlcAvoy and Chase are hopeful of combining the re- mainder of this year's great defensive team With some expectant offensive players from the 1933 frosh team, and in such a man- ner once more bring the coveted Confer- ence championship back to Collegeville. URSINUS., 7g VILLANOVA, 7: Never was there a more surprised Wildcat nor a more jubilant Grizzly Bear than after the Ursinus-Villanova tussle of 1933. A team that walloped both South Carolina and Temple later in the season was stopped by the scrappiest and gamest Ursinus aggrega- tion that ever trod the Main Line gridiron. The green Grizzly team stood its opening test in heroic fashion by staving off many WALTER W. TRoPP Captain JoHN C. McAvoa' RALPH E. CHASE Head Coach 191 Line Coach 2 KXXI1 Tl 1 jgzt 7?

Six thousand fans went into a bedlam of excitement when, in the final period, Calvert tossed a perfect pass to Minnie Seiple in the end zone for a touchdown. A moment later, Shuman tied the score with a placement kick. The Ursinus-Villanova tie was one of the biggest football upsets of the season. URSINUS, 20, ST. JOSEPHS, 0: The game with St. loseph's College of Philadelphia served as a breather from the terrific battle the Bears had staged with Villanova the week before. The Hawks were no match for the McAvoymen, and the Grizzlies gained almost at will, using re- verses, spinners, and off-tackle slants to register a touchdown in each of the first three periods. Mickey Shuman, mite quarterback, scored two touchdowns and booted both extra points, while Captain Wally Tropp plunged through tackle for the other six-pointer. Bassman was the outstanding defensive star of the game. The entire Ursinus squad saw action in this fray. BASSMAN, Fullback S. LEVIN, Tackle KNUDSEN, Guard 192 Ursinsus Reverse Deceives Diclfinson URSINUS, 7g DICKINSON, 7: Dickinson pulled a surprise hy making the most of medi- ocre playing on the part of the Grizzlies., and held Jack McAvoy,s aspiring Conference winners to a 7-7 deadlock in the first Conference game of the season. The many alumni who returned to Patterson Field to celebrate Old Timer's Day had to he content with a tie, when the Bears failed to click throughout the game, save for several plays in the first quarter. After the Red Devils had scored on a long forward pass shortly following the opening whistle, Bassrnan returned the ensuing kickoff to midfield: Tropp galloped to the 20-yard line on the first play, and two plays later he plunged over' the goal line. Shuman made good a place kick to tie the count. The Bearsi inspired playing ended here. A listless punting duel marked the remainder of the contest.

Guard Tropp goes through for a gain at Drexel URSINUS, 6g F. and M., 0: Ursinus retained its jinx over F. and lVl. For the fourth straight year, the Bcrs downed their arch rivals with a 6-0 score. The game, played at Lancaster, was hard fought and tense throughout. It was not until the final quarter that the Bears began to seriously threaten the Roses' goal line. A fumble, recovered deep in F. and lVI. territory, led indirect- ly to the Ursinus score, for in the following play Cliff Calvert threw a long pass to Bradford, who outstepped the rival safety man, and sped over the big stripe for the lone touchdown of the day. URSINUS, 7, DREXEL, 0: The undefeated record of the Ursinus football team was kept in- tact when the Bears bettered the Drexel Dragons in a game marked by frequent fumbles. The superiority of the Mc-Avoymen over their Engineer rivals was clearly shown in every department of the game, but poor handling of the pigskin at critical moments of the feud cost the invading Bears several touchdowns.

URSINUS, 12: GETTYSBUHG, 13: The all-im- portant extra points wouldn't go over the crossbar for the pennant-seeking Ursinus Bears. As the result, the sixth football game of the season ended in their first defeat. Gettysburg, sporting a powerful offense and an impregnable defense, put an end to the no- defeat hopefuls when they charged through the Griz- zlies in the opening quarter for an early seven point lead and the margin throughout the game. The Bears. who had evidently been well scouted, found their running attack of no avail. Cliff Calvert threw numerous passes, but had no great degree of success until, in the fourth quarter, Reds Bassman grabbed one of the heaves to race 15 yards for a touchdown: Shuman failed to convert. The Bullets came back rapidly in the next few plays to score a touchdown. S H UMAN, Quarterbaclr W. PRICE, Halfback T. PRICE, Guard 195 FARIAS, Guard jxu rg MZ.

Very shortly, Ursinus rooters were provided with a thrill, when Johnny Grimm, Grizzly linesman. intercepted a Gettysburg pass, and ran from midfield to score another touchdown. But again the Ursinus try for the extra point was unavailing, and the Bears' Conference hopes blasted. URSHNUS. 03 MUHLENBERG. 3: A gentleman by the name of Al Weiner' was the big factor in Muhlenberg's win over the Bears. It was he who booted a beautiful fourth-quarter field goal, the only score of the game. It was Ursinusl second defeat SEIPLE, Halfback BENNETT. Center 196 and first and only shutout of the year. For the most part of the game, the play was in midfield, with neither team doing any serious threatening. The Mules, however, hit their stride in the final period, and drove through the weary Bears to the three- yard line, where a do-or-die defense stopped their touchdown efforts. Here Weiner's toe was equal to the occasion, and his ensuing field goal decided the contest. UHSINUS, 13g SWARTHMORE, 0: The last home game of the season found the Ursinus team with a revamped backfield and new spirit within the ranks. Con- sequently, Swarthmore was walked over to the tune of 13-0, and the Bearsi aerial attack began to function once more. Both touchdowns were made via forward passes. Red Bassman snared the first in the end zone in the second quarter, Hank Detwiler, a drafted linesman, grabbed the second as he was crossing the goal line in the third period. Walt Price, a heretofore substitute, was on the firing end of both scoring passes. URSINUS, 73 ALBRIGHT, 14: Thanksgiving Day found the small Grizzly aggregation football wearyg and it was not surprising that after a strenuous season such as the 1933 Bear gridders went through that they should lose to the Albright team. ln ground gained, the Grizzlies ran roughshod over the Reading team, but lack of scoring punch till late in the contest cost them the victory. After a score- less first half, the Lions sent two slippery halfbacks down the field under passes. and the Bear defense was caught fiat-footed. Ursinus did come back in the final quarter, but it was too lateg the lone touchdown resulting was of no avail. 197 7 yard? jug: CROSS COUNTRY Capt. Sutin. Neiman.

LACK of experienced men was the greatest element responsible for the poor show- ing of the cross country team. Besides Captain Sutin, Gregory and Captain-elect McLaughlin were the only veterans on the squad. None of the new men had any running experience. ln the Conference meet, which was held at Gettysburg, Ursinus was forced to take a poor second to F. and M., and thereby permit the Lancaster runners to gain permanent possession of the trophy, winning the Conference race for the third time. Both Ursinus and Dickinson also had two of the required three legs on the trophy before the meet last fall. ln dual meets. Ursinus lost. respectively, to F. and lVl.. Temple and Lehigh. The latter two meets were held in Collegeville. Stanley Omwake coached the team.

SUTIN Captain Audi SOCCER SOCCER received recognition for the first time in Ursinus athletics in the fall of 1932, when an organized team, coached by an All-American soccer player, Dr. Donald G. Baker, went through a schedule of eight games and sustained but one defeat. Last fall, a more diflicult schedule was arranged for a more experienced team, hoping that the embryo soccerites would be even more successful. However, Coach Baker's men were able to win but one contest in five played. Besides these games two practice tilts were held with strong semi-pro teams. The 1933 record of the booters was one victory, two ties. and two defeats, the Bakermen registered 8 goals to their opponents' 14. Fullback Herb Stratton, a junior, captained the team. The captain-elect is Buss Fisher, s who plays center forward. No lettermen were lost by graduation. UBSINLTS, 5: GIRARD. 2: After dropping an early season practice game to the Bridgeport A.

The Ursinus booters ran the visitors' defense ragged the Hrst half, piling up a 4-0 lead. The following half found many of the reserves in the game. Fisher. George, Chestnut. and Burns did the scoring for the Bears. URSINUS, 1: HAVERFORD RESERVES, 1: The Grizzly booters journeyed down the Main Line to surprise the strong Haverford outfit by holding them to a 1-1 score in a hard fought game. The Bears trailed 1-U during the greater part of the contest, but their determined goal-ward drive in the last few minutes of play could not be stopped by the home team. Schafferis kick for the tying tally came with but a minute to play. URSINUS, 0: GETTYSBURG, 7: A hard journey, a terrific wind, a vengeance-seeking Gettys- burg team, and an inability to get started all colla- borated in soundly drubbing the Ursinus booters at Gettysburg-a defeat that suddenly turned into a rout.

The Ursinus drives were frequent. but with no tangible success. The result was Ursinusis second straight loss. URSINUS. 33 TEMPLE, 3: Careless playing in the late stages of the game cost Ursinus another victory. when the Temple booters took advantage of their mishaps and deadlocked the score-a deadlock that could not be broken even in two extra periods of play.

HANDICAPPED by the lack of sufficient material and by ineligibility rules. the 1934 wrestling team overcame great odds in winding up a fairly successful season. winning two matches with colleges that defeated a more experienced Grizzly team a year before. and losing four meets. The squad contained only three regulars of the season before. and after the Temple meet one of these was lost because of in- eligibility. Another difficult problem was the fact that a new coach had to face the task of building up a green team. This job. Mr. Wieneke of Phoenixville. former Penn State wrestler. filled very capably. The grapplers chalked up 60 points in six matches. as against 1,111 for their opponents. They took their defeats at the hands of F. and NI. and Penn. when Ursinus won but a single bout in each match. Red Bassman, wrestling in the 165 pound class, was the outstanding Wrestler on the squadg he was undefeated in all his six bouts. Captain Shollenberger and Bradford, the latter wrestling his first year. also performed commendably. Sam Levin has been elected captain of next yearls team. 205 u 7 IJXII if W gud: URSINUS, 10: TEMPLE, 28: The Ursinus team had hardly gotten into shape before the Temple match early in the season. Lack of conditioning of the Ursinus team was evident. Captain Shollenberger and Bassman threw their opponents for the only Ursinus points. URSINUS, 3: LAFAYETTE, 30: Lafayette, presenting an experienced team, lost but two bouts and won the re- maining six by falls, to decisively defeat Coach Wieneke's charges in the Thompson-Gay Gymnasium. Bradford won on time, and Bassman threw his man in one minute and twenty seconds for Ursinus' 8 points. Shollenberger lost a well fought bout to Calendar in an extra period tussle. Ursinus, 3: F. and lV1., 35: Seven falls against a single time advantage was the margin by which Charlie lV1ayse1"s F. and M. mat artists subdued Wieneke's inexperienced team. F. and M., going through the past season undefeated and holding victories over the outstanding wrestling teams in the East, showed their superiority in every bout except NWWAN S'f0LLENBER0"3R in the 165 pound division. Red Bassman kept his slate fJ"1'ff'f" clean. defeating Stolarz on time. URSINUS, 3: PENNSYLVANIA, 27: Bassman again was the sole Bear winner in the meet with the U. of P. at the Palestra. The red-headed celebrity tallied when he easily defeated the much touted Clay Lee of Penn. Penn won three of the bouts by falls. URSINUS, 19: GETTYSBURG, 13: The Bears gained their first victory of the season, atoning for the defeat received from Gettysburg a year previ- ous. Wie11eke's matmen won five of the eight bouts. Danehower. wrestling in the 135 pound class. and Bassman threw their men: and Shollenberger. Bradford. and Kravitz took time advantages. URSINUS. 1.7: RUTGERS. 11: In the last meet of the season. the Ursinus team defeated Hut- gers in a hard fought contest at the Thompson-Gay Gymnasium.

SHEAR tages. Manager 206 BASEBALL RUSSELL C. JOHNSON Coaclz of Baseball and Director of Athletics ALTHOUGH they played a considerably better brand of ball in 1933 than the year before. Coach Jing Johnson's baseball team was still not one of championship calibre. The Bears were able to place but third in the Eastern Pennsylvania Baseball League. As Coach Johnson had predicted early in the season, the pitching showed a notable improvement over the previous year, and this, coupled with some good hitting, won four of the nine games played. Six other scheduled games were rained out. The fact that the Bears averaged eight runs per game is worthy of note. How- ever. too many errors at crucial moments were responsible for the losing of several games. Most of the squad was lost by graduation. only five of last year's lettermen remaining. URSINUS, 103 VILLANOVA. 18: The Villanova game was a hectic oneg just the type that might be expected for the iirst game of the season. Thirty- three base hits for a total of twenty-eight runs gave Villanova the long end of the 18 to 10 score. Errors and wild base running marred the contest on both sides. Lodge, Reese, and Scholl led the Grizzly bats- men with three hits apiece. URSINUS, 223 P. M. C., 16: Ursinus pounded out a wild victory over P. M. C., bombarding three Cadet hurlers for twenty-two hits. At the same time, P. M. C. touched Mowrey and Jolmson for a like number of safeties. This, Ursinus' first win of the year, was marked by many extra base hits by both teams. Lodge, Eachus and Reese pounded out ten hits among them, the former two hit the first two , JOHN G.

The game was loosely played, errors accounting for most of the runs. Ursinus led until the eighth, when Swarthmore rallied to put across five runs. URSINLTS, 5g LEHIGH, 10: The Bears lost their third straight game of the season, bowing to Lehigh at Bethlehem. The home team scored its ten runs on eight hits while Ursinus garnered thirteen. The playing of the Bears was ragged at times, and they threw away many scoring opportunities. Jack Reese lifted a home run over the left frelderis head which was the feature clout of the day. URSINUS, l: JUNIATA, 7: This game was close throughout and was not decided until the eighth in- nnig. Len Heck. playing his first varsity game, led the Grizzlies on the offense with three hits.

Johnson allowed only seven hits, while he retired seven men by the strikeout method. CHARLTON H. BONHAM Manager 209 T R A K fxzzvy Q JOHN C. MC!-Moy Head Coach THE track season last year was a success considering the number of men on the squad. A rather peculiar situation was evident throughout the track meets: there were men in most of the events who regularly took first places, but there were no men to garner points by taking seconds and thirds. Upon glancing over the track results, if the number of first places were taken as a criterion. Ursinus should have won most of its engagements. Captain Steele and Captain-elect Tropp were the most important point gainers. Brian, Grimm, and Levin were the best newcomers of the year. The squad showed improvement as the season progressed under Jack McAyoy. who served his first year as coach of track. Rear Row: Bradford, Grimm, D. McAvoy. Astlieimer, R. Levin. jaggard.

Rube Levin won the lone first place for the Grizzlies when he pushed the shot 12 feet to smash the former Ursinus record by seven inches. Levin also took second place in the broad jump to annex high scoring honors for Ursinus with eight points. URSINUS, 52g DREXEL, 74: The Grizzly track- men lost to Drexel by a margin of twenty-two points. but the tale might have been different had freshmen been allowed to participate. Wally Tropp captured scoring honors for the meet by amassing a total of seventeen points. scored in the seven events in which he entered. URSINUS, 58: ST. JOSEPHS. 68: In a hard fought contest, the Grizzly trackmen dropped a meet to St. Josephs College. Grinun led Ursinus by tak- ing first place in both the high and low hurdles and second place in the broad jump. Captain Steele. after taking first place in the 100-yard dash, pulled a tendon in his leg and was lost to the squad for the season. CONFERENCE MEET: Drexel, showing unex- pected strength, captured first place in the Conference which was held at Carlisle. The Bears were handi- capped by the absence of Captain Steele who was unable to participate because of an injury. Ursinus failed to take first place in any event, which seemed a reversal of its tactics in the earlier meets. Brian's running in the half-mile was the best Ursinus per- formance of the day. 211 ffjzzdr far, TENNIS LAST spring saw the renewal of tennis on the College athletic roster after a year's absence. The relapse had been necessitated not by a lack of interest in the sport, but because of the economic curtailment required. ln the past year greater interest has been evident in the net sport on the campus. Besides the intercollegiate com- petition, much interest was shown in the fall tennis tournament. Because of the prevailing inclement weather only three games on the schedule could be played: of these. Ursinus won but one. Harvey L. Carter, tennis coach, is looking forward to a promising season this yearg all the veterans are back. and several new men who showed up well in the fall net tourney are expected to bolster the team's strength.

In 1916 the club provided a director of Wo- II1GI'l,S Athletics. It was at her suggestion that the Women's Ath- letic Association was organized in the fall of 1919. For many years the association was composed of all the women students of the col- lege. However, due to a change in the Constitution, only those who have shown sufficient interest and ability in athletics to win a certain number of points under the rules of the Points System are admitted as members. According Fox BLIQW EWNHTT IEHHRICK SHHNAN to the Points System, as formu- YLE URROVVES PDERKIRK . STAN, RMCH KASSAB lated by the Councll of the Asso- ciation, each sport receives a num- ber of points in accordance with its relative importance. This is the chief means of selecting the winner of the Honor Blazer. This is the highest honor a girl can receive and is awarded at the end of her Junior year to that girl who has been most representative of college activities-athletics, dramatics, scholarship, leadership. sportsmanship and genuine interest in campus activities. The WOIHCIIQS Athletic Council is composed of the oflicers of the Association, a representative elected by each class and the managers of the various sports. The Council supervises the application of the Points System, makes awards for which it provides, and in general forms an advisory board for the Athletic Association. The purpose is to arouse greater interest in athletics and campus activities among the women students. 216 HOCKEY THIS year was marked by a slight change in the hockey program when Ursinus joined the Philadel- phia Field Hockey Association. This association attends to the scheduling of meets for its members which include the Saturday Morning Club, Drexel Institute, Beaver College, Rosemont College, Swarthmore College, the. Philadelphia Country Club, and the Main Line Club. Besides games with all of these teams, the Ursinus girls also played the Alumnae and Mt. St. Joseph's College. Under the leadership of 'GBabe" Quay, cap- tain for 1933, a successful season of seven victories and two defeats was completed. Besides the cap- tain, three other varsity players will be lost through graduation. These are Marion Blew, left fullback, Sarah Mary Ouderkirk, center halfbackg and Helen Lewis, right halfback. Bertha f'Bupsi' Francis has been elected captain for the 1934 sea- son. URSINUS. 3: SATURDAY MORNING CLUB. U: ln the first game of the year, Ursinus met the Saturday Morning Club on the home field. Due to a strong attack, led by Bups Francis and Mid Codshall, the Bears piled up eight goals by the time the final whistle blew. Good defensive work by Janet Bardsley, goal-keeper, playing her first varsity game, aided in keeping the visitors score- less. URSINUS, 6, DREXEL, l: Once again Bups Francis starred for Ursinus with four points to her credit. Drexel put up a good fight and repeatedly worked the ball within the striking circle, but Full- backs Monty Blew and Alice Richard, playing especially well on the defense, held the visitors to one point. URSINUS, 4, BEAVER, 3: The game with Beaver, played at Jenkintown, was a well-earned victory. The first score, made by the Beaver girls, spurred the Bears to a more vigorous attack. Witli the lead continually passing from one side to the other, the outcome of the game remained doubt- ful until Eleanor Lyle put the ball into the cage near the close of the game for the winning point. URSINUS, 4, ALUMNAE, 0: The former stars showed their skill by holding the game to a scoreless tie for the first half. The varsity, how- er, finally began to click toward the end of the contest, and with a sudden spurt scored four goals 217 Miss ELEANoR F. SNELI. Coach of W'0men's .4thlelic.w A.

Although the Bears Were threatened several times, fine defensive work by Monty Blew prevented the visitors from scoring. URSINUS. 2: SYWARTHMOBE, 3: The Swarthmore squad, undefeated for the past three years, broke the Bears' winning streak in the sixth contest of the season. Despite a vicious attack by the Collegeville co-eds and a 2-l lead at the half, the Garnet girls managed to nose out a 3-2 victory. URSINUS, 5g PHILADELPHIA COUNTRY CLUB. 0: Due to a fast offensive led by Captain Quay and steady playing by the backfield. the visitors were prevented from getting even within scoring distance. Mid Godshall was high scorer. URSINUS, lg MAIN LINE CLUB, 2: ln the encounter with Main Line at the Merion Cricket Club. the Bears met with their second defeat of the season. The Collegeville girls, although handicapped by a wet, slippery Held, played a spirited game. and though their field work seemed superior, Main Line managed to break through for two goals. Bups Francis was the lone scorer for Ursinus. URSINUS, Jag MT. ST. JOSEPHS, 1: The close of the season was marked by a 4-1 victory over Mt. St. Josephs College on the College field. Early in the game the Bears piled up three tallies in quick succession. A swift comeback by the visitors at the opening of the second half netted them their only score. 218 B A S K E T B A L L Co-CAP-TA1Ns SARA L. PFAHLER SARAH NTNRY OVDERKIRK PLAYING a schedule of nine games, the girls' basketball team enjoyed a successful season, they won four of their games, tied two, and lost three. Most hard fought of all the contests were the two games with Beaver. Ursinus won the first of these, and the second ended in a tie. The three defeats of the season were at the hands of Bryn Mawr, Drexel, and Rosemont. This season the second team had a complete schedule, playing six games. These contests were all preliminary to the varsity contests. The second teams of Bryn Mawr, Beaver, Rosemont, Drexel, and Swarthmore were met: the Ursinus reserves won three of the six contests played. Four seniors on the squad will be lost by graduation. They are Co-Captains Sarah Mary Ouderkirk and Sara Pfahler, Marion Blew, and Helen Eisenberg. UBS-INUS, 28g PHOENIX INDEPENDENTS, 23: Ursinus travelled to Phoenix- ville on February 2nd to meet the local team in what originally was to be a practice game for the Collegeville maidens. Ursinus did have the upper hand in the opening part of the game, but before the first half was over the lead was changing every few plays, as it did for the remainder of the game. Misses Francis and Godshall. with 11 points apiece, led the Ursinus offense. URSINUS, 43: LEBANON VALLEY, 17: The co-eds of Lebanon Valley proved no match, for the Ursinus women, once the game got under way in the first home contest of the season. Playing the first quarter under the old rules, Lebanon Valley gained the upper hand for that short time, however, for the remainder of the game the Collegeville co-eds were not even threatened. Silvia Erdman took scoring honors with 13 points. URSINUS, 165 BRYN MAWB, 31: The Bryn Mawr basketeers proved too fast for the Ursinus aggregation in their encounter at Bryn Mawr. 1n the first half Bryn Mawr tallied a total of 22 points to Ursinus' 63 and the home team practically coasted the latter half of the contest. Mid Godshall scored 12 of the Ursinus points. URSINUS, 25, BEAVER, 24: In a fast, spirited contest at Jenkintown, whose outcome was in doubt till the final whistle, the Ursinus co-eds emerged the victors by the slim margin of one point. During the second half of the contest, Ursinus out- scored the Jenkintown lassies 17-8, holding their opponents scoreless during the third quarter. 219 1 X11 W gn URSHNUS, 15, ROSEMONT, 33: Mid Godshall scored all of Ursinus' 15 points in a listless game with Rosemont at Rosemont. From the opening whistle the Rose- mont girls took the lead from Miss Snellis proteges and never relinquished it. URSINUS, llg DREXEL, 22: Scoring only three points in the first half, the Ursinus co-eds found the handicap too difficult to overcome in an encounter with Drexel in the Thompson-Gay Gymnasium. Mid Godshall, for the second game in succession. scored all the Ursinus points. URSINUS, 20, BEAVER, 20: The second Ursinus-Beaver game of the year found both teams entering the contest cautiously, playing a tight, meticulous, defen- sive game. The large crowd in the Thompson-Gay Gymnasium saw the small score of 7-3, in favor of Beaver. prevail at the end of the first half. ln the third quarter, Ursinus rallied to score 15 points to its opponents' 7, and consequently take the lead, which it failed to maintain for the rest of the game. URSINUS. 19: SWARTHMORE, 12: Led by Bups Francis, who scored 8 points, the Ursinus co-eds encountered little difiiculty in defeating the Swarthmore girls in a slow game at Swarthmore. Ursinus had the upper hand throughout the contest. URSINUS, 45: ALUMNAE, l8: The Alumnae proved no match for the younger undergraduates in their annual encounter. It was only through the fine playing of Rena Grim '33 that the Alumnae made as good a showing as they did. Back Row: Roach, Godsliall. Mgr. Bardsley, Richard, Barnett. Middle R01l'f Asst.

Quite an extensive schedule had been arranged bv Manager Marion Blew. Those matches included were with Drexel Institute. Brvn Mawr Collge. New York Univrsity. Mt. St. Josephis College, Swarthmore College, Beaver College, and Rosmont College. Bain interfered not only with the matches but also with the practices. The courts were in playing condition for only very short intervals. A few practices were held in the gymnasium, but these were ineffective. The coach, Miss Eleanor Snell, was in the hospital recuperating from an operation. Her assistant, Miss Anne Uhrich, together with the captain and manager, selected the team. Bea Wheatley was Captain for the 1933 season. Marion Blew, manager and captain-elect, was number one player, Bertha Francis, number two. and Lydia Ganser, number three. The first doubles combination included Rhea Wheatley and Lillian Barnett, the second, Dorothy Kehs and Ruth Roth. The newcomers to the team were Lydia Canser, a freshman, Ruth Both, a junior, and Dorothy Kehs, a senior. URSINUS, 13 BEAVER. 4: The Beaver match was played at Jenkintown. All the Ursinus players put up a hard iight, but the lack of practice was too great an obstacle to overcome. The final score was 4 to 1, in favor of Beaver. "Bups" Francis, playing her usual good game, was lone scorer for the Ursinus team. URSINUS, 13 SVVABTHMORE, 4: Ursinus met Swarthmore on the home courts. However, the story was much the same as with Beaver. Again the Ursinus team showed their lack of practice and bowed to the Swarthmore maidens 4 to 1.

' , t , F1115 College opened the current year with a student body totalling -1 ltlg of these 260 are men and 181, women. The total is thirty-three less than that of the preceding year, but is approximately the average size of the student bodies of Ursinus for the past ten years. ln the fall, 136 new students were admitted to the College. Of the four classes, the seniors were undoubtedly the best organized. This might be attributed to their having a more capable class president than any of the other classes. Class enmity seemed entirely absent from the campus, except, per- haps. between the freshman and sophomore classes and, even this died down after the beginning of the year. Freshman customs were carried out as usual, but were not strictly enforced. Although the freshmen always appeared to be more strongly prepared for their traditional class struggles with the sophomores, the latter invari- ably won the major tussles, namely, the tug-of-war, the football and basketball games. The effect of the economic depression was also evident among the students. Although some were forced to drop out, temporarily at least, many were able to continue their studies with aid of self-jobs. The Governmentis Civil Vvorks Ad- ministration program was also a welcome aid to many of the students. Literary Activity THERE was no depression in the progress of the literary attainments on the campus during the recent year. The Weekly and RUBY. the two major campus publications, made commendable progress. Debating, despite a curtailed budget, enjoyed a more extensive schedule than in previous years. Chiefly responsible for the good year enjoyed by the Weekly was Dwight L. Gregory, the editor. Contrasted with its predecessor. the Weekly of the past year showed an improved make-up throughoutg larger and more impressive heads also added to the appearance of the paper. For the first time in many years, a six page issue was instituted, and there are possibilities that the greater page issue may become a permanent policy of the paper. The editorials of the paper were more conserva- tive than those of the preceding year, and altogether presented a wholesome attitude. The column, HGrizzly Gleaningsii, was perhaps the best feature column inaugurated. Cigarette advertisements, after a yearis absence, again appeared in the Weekly. The 1934 RUBY is marked by its wide departure from the likenesses of the RUBIES of other years. Although this is the thirty-eighth edition of the RUBY. it is the first time that more than one senior has been pictured on a page, and the first time that the entire student body was individually photographed. Though published by the senior class, the 1934 edition of the RUBY stressed more its position as the yearbook of Ursinus College rather than as the record book of the graduating class. Of the minor publications, the Lantern. the Freshman Hanfllnook. and the Grizzly Griflfler. the last named enjoyed the most successful year. This publication 229 ,fy rf XJ!!! K. K-S511 71 1, was instituted last fall as a football magazine, printed for all home football games, and replaced the Football Program of previous years. The Grizzly Gridrler com- pared very favorably with similar publications in other colleges. The College literary magazine, the Lantern, made very little progress in its second year of existence. Not only was the magazine hindered by the lack of funds, but it was also handicapped by the lack of moral support on the campus. Scarcity of contributions, although some of the articles printed were worthy of merit, further tended to make the editing of the Lantern a difficult task. lt is probable that with the end of the present academic year the last edition of the Lantern will have been published. 1933-4 Freshman Handbook served the purpose of acquainting new students with Ursinus College and its social activities, but showed no appreciable difference from the previous Handbooks. It seems that no attempt was made to improve it over its forebearers, and altogether too many writeups were taken bodily from the 1932-3 Handbook. There remains room for improvement in this publication. l Debating during the past year was marked by the replacement of the Oxford style of debate in favor of the more interesting Oregon type. The former type presents three speakers and three rebuttals on each side, while the latter is made up of only one constructive speech, a cross examination, and a summary, on both sides. The questions debated, the NRA and Government Ownership of Banks, indicate the tendency in debating toward economic questions. The audiences at the debates being in some instances small was probably due to the debating of only the two topics throughout the year. College Functions THE most significant innovation of the past year as it affects campus activities was the inauguration of the Committee on Student Expenditures. This body, com- posed of three faculty members and three students, was founded for the purpose of auditing the books of all organizations and activities on the campus handling any funds. It was, many believe, a direct outgrowth of the mishandling of the funds of the 1933 RUBY. The purpose behind the formation of the Committee is commend- able, and if there is any criticism at all, it is, perhaps, that it does not go far enough. To the Curtain Club goes the honor of producing the most meritorious showing of any of the extra-curricular activities in the past year. The quality of acting seen in the various plays and the good comment received on them during the past year is noteworthy. The efforts of Prof. and lVlrs. Reginald Sibbald, coaches of the Club, and of Dolores Quay, its president, were in no small degree responsible for the fine performances. Mr. John W. F. Leman's coming to Urinus last year as director of orchestral music has already given some impetus to a better day for such music at the College. Through his efforts the College Symphony Orchestra was organized, and improved organization was evident in the College Band. lVlr. Leman conducts regular weekly practice meetings of these bodies, and he hopes to build up at the College in a few 230 years a significant place for orchestral music. However, these organizations will not enjoy the success intended for them, unless the students take a greater interest. The French Club is the newest organization on the campus, and has functioned successfully during its short existence. The Anders Pre-Medical Society and the Hall Chemical Society, both terminating their second year of existence, have given proof of their raison daetreg they will undoubtedly continue in their well deserving places in the extra-curricular life of the campus. A student-faculty committee was appointed during the year for the study of campus problems, but, as yet, has not affected any critical changes in campus conditions, except, perhaps, an improvement in the chapel services. Athletic Organization GGATHLETICS FOR ALL" has practically become a reality on the Ursinus campus. Considering the various sports open to the students, no one can say that he did not participate because of lack of opportunity. A total of eight varsity sports and intra- mural activity in several of them are open to the men students. For the co-eds, field hockey, basketball, and tennis are recognized as varsity sports, and intramural activity is seen in all of them. ln intercollegiate competition for 1933-4, Ursinus made a comparatively mediocre showing. The varsity football team earned the best record of any of the sport teams: winning four games, tying two, and losing three. Of the other fall sports, cross country fell below the standard of other years, the team losing all of its meets: while soccer, still in its infancy at Ursinus, enjoyed a fair season, with the outlook of 1934 promising. Of a fifteen game schedule, the basketball was able to win only four of its games, although it lost many of its contests by small margins. The wrest- ling team, in many instances competing with teams above its class, not only made a good showing, but has also tended to become a popular sport among the student body, drawing better crowds at home than any of the other minor sports and several of the major sports. For the year 1933, Ursinus varsity men's teams won 36 per cent of their contests, while at the time of this writing tApril lsti 42 per cent of the contests held thus far this year have been won, and it is expected, with the bright outlook for spring sports, the percentage of games won will exceed 50 per cent by the end of the present academic year. Women's athletics in intercollegiate competition have fared better than the nien's. The co-eds have won most of their games in both hockey and basketball. They have won 69 per cent of their contests since September. The best record of any single athletic team on the campus was made by the freshman football team, which won all four games of a difficult schedule, and which was unscored upon and untied all season. In basketball, the frosh also gave a good account of themselves, winning seven encounters of a ten game schedule. Alvin R. Paul '33 coached the freshmen in both these sports. 231 2 ffxxzldt Q ffgbudz Under R. C. Johnson, director of athletics, intramural sports enjoyed a success- ful year during 1933-4 among the men and women students. The popularity of these games on the campus and the interest evidenced in them by the students will un- doubtedly tend to make them a permanent part of the athletic program at the College. Worthy of mention in the complete and capable coaching staffs available at present in most sports on the campus in comparison to the size of the College. Many of the coaches have been outstanding participants in their respective fields. John C. McAvoy and Ralph E. Chase, the football coaches, were mentioned for All- American honors while in collegeg R. C. Johnson, the coach of baseball, made a remarkable record as a pitcher when a student at Ursinus, and later played with the Philadelphia Athleticsg Dr. N. W. Rubin, coach of track and cross country, was the Canadian Mile Champion when a student at McGill Universityg the coach of soccer, Dr. Donald C. Baker, was an All-American soccer player when an under- graduate at Haverford. Ursinus may indeed be well proud of her coaches. f In Retrospect SEPT., 1933 ....

Silong .... 23-1 IN APPRECIATION ALTHOUGH the work of a college annual is carried on in the name of one or several individuals, the actual labor requires the participation and aid of many hands. The production of the 1934 RUBY was not different from any other yearbook in this respect. Therefore, this opportunity is taken to express my appreciation of the many efforts that have helped make this publication a reality: To the senior class for the faith that they have shown in me, by electing me editor, to the members of the RUBY Staff for their willing efforts in creating the Annual, and to James M. Wharton, the business manager, and his staff, for their work toward making the book a financial success. To the members of the other classes for their kind co-operation and interest, to Jesse G. Heiges 735 and Harry F. Brian '35 for their active parts in the RUBY,S production, and especially to Thomas P. Glassmoyer 736 for his indefatigable assistance. To the College for the various aids that it so willingly granted and particularly to Dr. Omwake and Prof. Sheeder. To Mr. Arvid R. Kantor, the representative of the Jahn Sz Ollier Engraving Co., for his untiring attention and tolerance in satisfying my endless demand. To the Merin-Baliban Studio for their good photographs and prompt service: and to lVlr. N. Francis Rubin of the Studio for his helpful interest. To the Lyon 81 Armor Printing Co. for their excellent work, and to Orville Stambaugh of this company for his splendid service and helpful advice. ln summary: I hope that all of you have enjoyed your afliliations with the 193-L RUBY, as have l. Thank you again for having made my job a pleasant task, as well as a worthwhile experience.
