Thus, we of the T956 staff have felt it beneficial to periodicallyappraise our work with regard to the goals upon which we have agreed. Simply stated, our goal has been to produce a yearbook. But there are many kinds of yearbooks. You might be interested in our ideas about the purposes of Sargasso, for that is what guided us in the preparation of the volume we now present to you. Essentially, the yearbook is a school record-- a graphic representation of one year of Earlham life. However, there is much more involved than FACULTY p. 9 STUDENTS p. 27 the word record signifies. A Sargasso is a memory book for all Earlhamites, and preserves not only memories of occasions but also of people, often dear friends whom one has not seen for many years. Earlham is a very active place, and we have attempted to catch people doing things. In this we have only partially succeeded, but the interest added by our ingenious photography staff has made our attempt to catch the living Earlham very worth while. Finally we wanted a yearbook which an Earl- hamite could show his friends proudly, feeling that it did iustice to his Alma Mater. The Spiritof Earl- ham is what we hoped to capture, and of course any attempt to capture the spirit of something is presumptive. However, achievement is not often greatwhere there is a lack of boldness in those who would achieve. The Editor GOVERNMENT p. 67 SPORTS p. 75 CLUBS AND ACTIVITIES p. 97 SPECIAL EVENTS p. iii llllllllIil'l'lll It is a fact that Time marches on and on, but those who know her best are firmly convinced that Ma Baker will always stay two strides ahead of it. To the men of Bundy Hall, her kindness--manifest so often as darned socks or pressed trousers--is a universal characteristic of Motherhood. To those people who perceive and admire the friendliness and fellowship of Earlham, Mrs. Baker is the personification of it. To anyone of any age who enjoys life and living, Ma's unquenchable outhful spirit--glimpsed in the form of pranks or caught in her infectious laughter--can never be forgotten . To the entire Earlham community, Ma Baker symbolizes graciousness and zest for life. It is with thankfulness for these contributions and sincere wishes for continued happiness, that we dedicate this yearbook to one of our most beloved citizens-- Ma Baker.

This time it is areplacement for historic Earlham Hall, first building on the Earlham campus. The design ofthe replacement attempts to keep close tothe original pattern of Earlham Hall. Additions will include a large dining area, which can be converted intoa ball room, and astudent union. With its completion, the IO-year building program will be complete. Old Earlham Hall is picturesque as ever! the big hole being dug. . . and finally saw signs of a New Earlham Hall!

Jones made an account of Do- lt-Yourself sink building serve as the springboard for his leap into this explan- ation in Earlham's fall convocation. New students soon found that his plea For Earlham ideals came from deep conviction which was reflected not only in his words but also in constant work to build the physical, spiritual, and intellectual community to which we aspire.

Early in the fall, the lucky eleven will meet in Geneva for comparison of summer notes, and an introduction, led by Mary Lane Charles, to the semester of study in each student's chosen university. During the semester each student will live in the language of the country in which he is studying, doing all his classwork in thatlanguage. Seminars conducted by Miss Charles will bring the group together from time to time to draw the various experiences of life and study abroad into focus.

H I ere s a sample of the prize- winner: There's a rumor there's a Junior Class 'around , But if there is we never can be found, We're non -activ e, non -persistent , We're almost non-existent, But, basically we're tentatively sound.

Although Earlham was more the victim than the victor this season, there was still one bright spot in this year's campaign. lt was the victory Earlham scored over arch-rival Hanover. For the first time in twenty-six years an Earlham eleven finallyturned the tricl2 against Hanover and came out on top of the score. To add to the ioy ofthe victory, they won the contest at the victim's field on Hanover's Homecoming Day . It was a great day For the Quakers! Earlham, though she came out on the short end ofthe win column this season, nevertheless had four members of the squad on the Hoosier League All- Conference Team. They were Dave Snyder icenterl, Tom Mullen iguardl, Buz Duff iendl, and Herb Sawyer ibackl . Buz Duff also won Honorable Men- tion on the Little All-American Team and Herb Sawyer, speedy back of the Earlham eleven, was twenty-fifth in the nation among small college players for net yards gained in rushing. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry. Herb was also chosen Most Valuable Player of this year's squad by his team- mates. Co-captains forthe 1955 EC football team were Back Therman Washington and Lineman Tom Mullen . Earlham's All-Conference Players: Buz Duff, Herb Sawyer, Dave Snyder, and Tom Mullen. si l 78 .

We were promptly, and itseemed correctly, termedthe soccer powerofthe mid-west. With this grandiose title it appeared as if the remaining con- ference games would be hardly more than a brisk workout. Unfortunately, however, someone forgot to get intouch with Indiana University. They promptly overwhelmed us on a horribly wet, miry day, which was to mark the beginning ofthe end of our hopes for a second consecutive conference title . It was a close match with the final score 3-l in favor of l.U. The week following the Indiana University nightmare we travelled to Chicago where we lost two very hard-fought and well-played contests to Navy Pier and to Wheaton: 3-T and l-O respectively. We rounded outthe season by defeating Chicago U., but the damage had been done, and the conference title went to our arch rivals, Indiana University. There are, however, a few noteworthy incidents that merit a word or two. ln spite of the fact that we lost three games, we had a better seasonal record than last year and, in addition, this year we defeated Kenyon, who would have had an un- defeated season if they had not visited us. Kenyon, by the way, stopped Oberlin's forty game winning streak. Oberlin has long been considered the foremost soccer power of the mid-west and this gave us a moral victory, if not a statistical one. Seven of our players were singled out for individual honors. Two of them made the W team which every player in every sport if Q dreams about--the All-American Team. ln addition to these players and those pictured, Schuyler Elsbree, Loutfi Bitar, Don Emmons, Dick Fineman, Mike Weider and Tom Towe were valuable assets to the team .

The Quakers, sparked by captain Jerry Rushton and outstanding freshman, Dick Tileston, won theirfirst meetagainst Manchester. ln the next meet with Indiana Central and suc- cessive encounters, Charlie Boren proved to be a valuable asset. Ed Beals, Doug Canady, Ed Kammeyer, and Jack Harrell ran well throughout the season and addedimportantdepth to the team. The meet at Taylor University was one the team will long remember. All except two runners had forgotten their uniforms and had to impose upon the Taylor coach for something to wear. When they crossed the finish line, the Quakers in Taylor uniforms were mistaken for Taylor run- ners and received a great deal of applause. In the H.C.C. meet Earlham took fourth place with Hanover, Anderson, and Indiana Central beating us in that order. SEASON'S RECORD Earlham 21 Manchester 35 18 lnd.

Netters were highly regarded as the team to beat. After losing a few close ones they ended up in fourth place with a 6-6 record. One of the highlights of the year was the first annual Richmond Basketball Tournament held at Trueblood Fieldhouse. Earlham Col- lege spared no expense in putting on a top-notch tournament. lt brought to Richmond some outstanding teams from across the nation. Even though E.C. did not win the tournament, it lost only one game. This was a hard-fought game, and when the final buzzer sounded, the Quakers were but four points behinda fine Southeastern Qklahoma team. McNeese State of Lake Charles, La., won, and went on to win the NAIA small college tournament in March. Another highlightof the season was the Christmas tour. Most of the play was centered around Chicago. Not only did the team en- ioy itself in the big city, butthe tour provided valuable experience which helped in conference games yet to be played. The trip was started by driving to Fort Wayne and playing ln- diana Tech. The team then traveled to Chicago and stayed at the Y.M.C.A. The next two games were played at Aurora, lll. After a clay of complete freedom the team traveled to Beloit, Wis. Two nights later they found themselves at Bunker Hill AFB, playing to raise money for the Olympic fund. The Christmas tour record was two wins and three losses. Eric Clark was the center of attraction not only because of his fine playing but also his good humor. Eric will never claim to be a great basketball player, but he will never denythat he is the Heart Champion. Jim Coulter was high point man for the season, racking up 397 points to put his four-year record total to l,ll7, just five points behind the school record.

They ended up with a fine .500 average in league play, loosing six and winning six. The all-over record of six wins and eight losses is not quite so impressive, but though the statistics may not indicate it, This year's Team was quite outstanding. At The All-Athletic Banquet, head baseball mentor George Oberle stated his belief that The very fine spirit which has developed this year will stand The team in good stead in '57. After his third and final yearas head baseball coach at E .C ., Oberle believes that he is leaving be- hind a strong, experienced, hard-working group of baseball players that will continue to be a credit to Earlham next year. Three seniors were chosen by their teammates for honorary positions, on the team. Murray Mills appeared in the second game ofthe Butler twin-bill, his first time on the field since re- turning from the army. Throughout the season he turned in fine performances and was voted by his teammates as the Most Valu- able Player ofthe year. Jim Coulter and Bill Cope were chosen by their appreciative fellow squad members to add the baseball laurels of honorary team co-captains to their wins.

TRACK A much-improved team showed spirit and enthusiasm from the first day of' training through the final meet, the All-Conference meet of which Earlhamwas the host. The end result was a fine showing all along the way, topped by a third place in the Conference . The effort and careful training began to pay off on the team's an- nual tripto Terre Haute to run in the Rose Relays. There an outstanding two-mile relay team of Ed Beals, Doug Canady, Wayne Vinson, and Jerry Rushton won the event for the second consecutive year. Equally good were the half-miler relay team CDick Barrett, Herb Sawyer, Jim Cheesman, and Terry Hitchcocki and the shuttle handle relay team.

During the sea- son this versatile senior participated in the high iump, pole vault, iavelin, shot put, discus, and both hurdling events. As much as the senior track- sters will be missed, their spirit and encouragement will live on in a good team next year. X hm gil Guy Goens easily clears the bar. . . and the hurdle, too!

Behind these performances, the reputation is likely to center around the closely-knit enthusiasm, hard work, and frequent hilarity shared by these 32 selected upperclassmen and their director, Leonard Holvik. Whether the occasion is an all-day tour of Indiana churches, a special rehearsal, a spring tour, a Town Meeting, or special music in Meeting, the Concert Choir is a big part of the Earlham life of its members, and a part that lives in the loyalty and devotion of its alumni.

This motto describes the three language clubs on campus. Each group meets frequently for dinner, where the conversation may become even more spirited as the language switches to German, French, or Spanish. The cultures represented by their languages are fur- ther studied with the help of visiting speakers, in- terpretive music, and student reports. Memorable for the Spanish Club is a visit to Cincinnati to see Jose Greco and his Spanish dancers. The colorful German Christmas Pageant produced by the German Club gave all Earlhamites a glimpse of the atmosphere of old-world tradition. Members of the French Club made plans and arrangements for the summer and semester they will spend traveling and studying in S France, beginning in july.

But there is also much that is lust for fun. A sing in the Faculty Bowl isa great way to get acquainted . Square-dancing in the Fieldhouse makes another evening exciting.

Highlight of the week is the President's Recep- tion for new students. Following this affair, the O.A. Lounge becomes the scene of a formal dance. Freshman activities do not end, however, until after Tri-Day Trials, Kangaroo Kourt, and the Freshman Talent Show. These events take place during the first week of classes. Tri-Day Trials and Kangaroo Kourt are the province of the Precedents Committee, and involve not only new students, but upperclassmen as well. The talent show is left en- tirely to the Freshmen, who neverfail to produce an evening of good entertainment, in spite of the short time allotted to them for its preparation .

The theme, which related to the threat of Communism, was a very good one for furthering honest discus- sions of inter-national affairs, one of the aims of the institute since its founding in 1930. J. Arthur Funston and Landrum Bolling chat with several of our distinguished In- stitute guests. The cold weather didn't phase the Concert Choir as they sang Alleluia. ARLHAM HALL GRUU D -BREAK!

HECKY-DEH DAY Not able to stand by and see an old Earlham tradition slip away, the Sophomores this year revived Hecky-Dern Day, an occasion which had been overlooked last year. Hecky-Dem Day was instituted by Earlham students originally as a weakened counterpart of Hell Day, Earlham's vestigal rem- nant of old-style Hell Week. The events of the day consist of a series of contests in which classes are pitted against one another. Customarily the most spectacular event of the day was the tug-of-war between Fresh- men and Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors with a Fire hose played across the middle. This year the biggestattention getter was the greased-pole scramble.
