To J. I. Holcomb, in recognition
of his efforts to beautify
the cannpus of Butler University,
this year's DRIFT is dedicated.
. . . spin a tale of seasons, clocks, and progress at
Butler University, 1953. There will be some talk of
the desperate minutes before a three-hour final,
the usual small talk about weather and seasons; and
a lot of proud talk about progress. We wish we
could stop that clock and talk of many other things,
but the hands will not be halted, nor will the steady
procession of DRIFTS and the story of progress
up througli the years

ler University. Completed in 1855, it
opened its doors in November of that
year as North Western Christian Uni-
In 1875 students and faculty aban-
doned the College Avenue location for
modern accommodations in Irvington.
Contemporary records noted down the
reluctance with which students once
again moved to a more spacious site,
this time to Fairview Park in the north-
ern residential section of Indianapolis.
THROUGH THE YEARS *
The new building, Arthur Jordan Memorial
Hall, was ready for occupancy in 1928, and the
Fieldhouse was completed in the fall of that year.
An appraisal of page seven affords a graphic pic-
ture of the tremendous growth which Butler has
undergone since thai time.
The Union and Pharmacy buildings both repre-
sent a current high-water mark in our ever-expend-
ing facilities. Atherton Center opened its doors in
1950, and the Pharmacy building, our most recent
structure, was ready for occupancy in 1951.
Fairview's campus will be the site of another
building project next spring. Construction crews,
a familiar sight on campus for the last few years,
are slated to begin erecting a new dormitory to
house Air ROTC and other men students.

UNDER THE CLOCK
These pictures of
student life under
the big clock in Jor-
dan Hall contrast sharply
to the historical sketch on
the preceding pages. But a
hurried look at The Collegian
before class and the proverbial
"jam in jelly hall" are all a part
of 1953 Butler history. These pictures
of contemporary Butler history may be relics
of the past fifty years from now.
Nothing comes more directly
under the influence
of the big clock than
pre-election frenzy, a
very significant element
in contemporary history.
Inside Atherton Center
Most important laboratory dedicated
to the study of "campusology" is the

facilities contained in Atherton Center.
Release from academic pressure can also
be found in the cafeteria, the billiard
and table tennis rooms, the drugstore, or
the extra-curricular offices on the third
The bookstore, operated as a separate
department for the first time this year,
has now become an inexpendable part
of every student's academic life.
These scenes, like those under the big
clock in Jordan Hall, reflect history in
the making at Butler University, 1953.
The quiet and refreshing atmosphere of the cafeteria means
a respite from duty for students and faculty alike.
JORDAN COLLEGE OF MUSIC
Concluding its second year as a full-fledged
college of Butler University is the Jordan Col-
lege of Music, located at 1116-1204 North
Delaware street. Jordan merged with Butler
in 1951 as its sixth college.
The Jordan College of Music of Butler Uni-
versity is an outstanding pivotal point of com-
munity culture which offers courses in music,
radio, drama, and dance.
As complementary to their scholastic pro-
gram, Jordan presents all-school dance and
musical productions in addition to individual
recitals. Some of these features are pictured
on the following pages.
UP THROUGH THE YEARS
An affiliated college of Butler University
is the John Herron Art School, located at
16th and Pennsylvania. The facilities of the
Art School and of the Art Institute Museum
are available to students of Butler by special
arrangement with the Director of the Art
School and with the Curator of the Museum.
Herron and Butler co-operate in a program
for the preparation of art teachers and super-
visors, offering courses in studio and applied

Up Through the Years With the Greeks
The growth of Butler University over
the past ninety-four years has witnessed
a similar expansion of Greek letter or-
ganizations. Throughout the nation, these
organizations have made a signal con-
tribution to the status of modern univer-
sity lile, and Fairview's history offers
Placing an emphasis on scholarship as well as
extra-curricular and social activity, the Greek letter
organization delivers an impetus to individual
Starting with the inception of Phi Delta Theta
in 1859 and Kappa Alpha Theta in 1874, Greek
organizations at Butler have grown to number seven
sororities and nine fraternities.
The latest innovation in Butler's Greek world is
Tau Kappa Epsilon which received its charter in
October, 1951. The Phi Kappa's (large picture)
are now completing their third year at Butler as a
colony and are expecting to receive their charter
The dates pictured represent the date of char-
tering: for the fraternities (left) ; Phi Deha Theta,
1859; Sigma Chi, 1865; Delta Tau Delta, 1875;
Lambda Chi Alpha, 1915; Sigma Nu, 1926; Sigma
Alpha Mu, 1948; and Kappa Sigma, 1949.
For the sororities: Kappa Alpha Theta, 1874;
Kappa Kappa Gamma, 1878; Pi Beta Phi, 1897;
Delta Delta Delta, 1914; Zeta Tau Alpha, 1920;
Delta Gamma, 1925; and Alpha Chi, 1925.
Many of these organizations pictured have ac-
quired new houses during the school year 1952-
1953. Wherever possible The Drift has pictured
them on following pages.
BISA, the Butler Independent Student's Associa-
tion, and Trianon joined with these Greek organi-
zations in promoting, through competition, many
worthy campaigns which took place in 1953.
Among these were the blood drive, sponsored by
Kappa Alpha Theta and the Cheer Drive, which
was won this year by Phi Delta Theta.
Fraternity presidents of these campus organiza-
tions try to achieve harmony through the Inter-
fraternity Council, under the supervision of L.
Gray Burdin, Dean of Men. Unity and co-opera-
tion among sororities is promoted through the Pan-
Through their work in the Student Council,
Greek letter organizations strive for more repre-
sentative student affairs and co-operation among
students, faculty, and administration.
Once more we make the transition from
past to present, from ancient to contemporary
history, with these candid scenes appropriate
only in 1953. The scope of Greek activities
are broad and sometimes peculiarly unde-
They include a potpurri of the scholastic,
the extra-curricular, the social, and (only on
rare occasions) the nonsensical.
The phone calls, the housework,
card games, study, hasty prepara-
tions for a last-minute date, home-
comings, exchange dinners, study-
breaks in front of a piano, and the
indispensable bulletin board all
play their part in Greek activities.
The James Irving Holcomb Botanical
Gardens are symbolic of a long-range plan
of building and beautification that its slow-
ly changing the face of Butler's campus.
With its central theme of modernity and
grace, the gardens are as much a part of
community relaxation as the college itself
is a part of community culture.
Its grace derives from the statue of Per-
sephone, goddess of growth and vegetation,
and its modernity is reflected by the Gar-
den House. The canal completes a picture
of beauty that is both architectural and
A lake (pictured on page 23), newly-
created this year, is a further enhancement
of the Garden's beauty. A glance at the

how closely the present gardens conform
to their original plan.

of the modern Butler University, is pic-

A Dormitory is Planned and
No discussion under the title "Up Thi'ough
the Years" would be complete without some mention of
the future. With such factors as war and inflation
remaining constant, Butler's future was as bright as
ever in 1953. Definite plans have been made
regarding a new AROTC dormitory, and
this year Butler became the site of a new
lake located midway between the
Fieldhouse and the campus.

DOWN THROUGH THE SEASONS
From summer, through winter,
and into spring is a swift motion
as seasons go, but since it can mean
the difference between a junior and
a senior or the span between
"finals" and graduation, it was a
very significant transition as far
as the Butler student in 1953 was
Tlie retrospect of years may evoke for us
a picture of the past, and the dependable pro-
gression of seasons carry with it a hint of the
future, but the present can be pictured only
in terms of a clock.
Thus "Around the Clock" is the ultimate
picture to be presented in introducing Butler,
1953. There's the clock that points to ten
minutes before eight and means a hurried
dash to the first class and the clock that spells
out coffee-break. For some, ten o'clock may
mean study and research in the library; for
others, a stroll through the drugstore and to
a rendezvous in the campus club.
Twelve o'clock spelled out luncli
time, whether tit home, in the cafe-
teriii, or in a sorority house. Two
o'clock meant more classes and more
study, and eight in the evening pointed
to exchange dinners, liomecoming cele-
brations, and pin serenades.
AROUND THE CLOCK
But we were not automatons, moving
through the rut of routine under the tyranny
of a clock. Every hour signified a new
challenge to think or to relax.
And each challenge drove home its les-
son. The challenge of eight o'clock on a
rainy Monday morning brought with it self-
discipline, the virtue of which was amply
rewarded when the clock pointed to two
o'clock on a warm Saturday afternoon.
Some of us will remember 1953 as a
year when the challenges never ran out
and the clock never ran down.
In picturing chronologically the action
at Butler, 1953, the yearbook staff would like to

Bratton's caricatures. We have adapted the story

The purpose of this co-educational camp
was to familiarize new students with Butler
University. Approximately sixty freshmen

YMCA and YWCA sponsored camp held this
year at McCormick's Creek August 29, 30,
and 31. Dr. DeForest O'Dell (pictured

the year at the annual YM-YW Freshmen

co-chairmen of the dance.
1952 was the second year in succession
that a Sigma Chi pledge gained the title.

Posing for you I. D. picture was an
anti-climatic process that mirrored fa-
tigue and relief, and you couldn't help
but feel that a semester of school would
be a relief, too, by comparison.
September also meant the beginning of in-
tramural sports. This increasingly popular
program included competition in basketball,
football, track, swimming, volleyball, base-
ball, and billiards.
This year's action began with iootball,
dominated by the Sigma Nu's who copped
first spot in the league by downing the Phi
Belt's in a decisive game, 12-2. Final stand-
ings for the league put Sigma Nu into first
place, followed by Lambda Chi in second,
and Phi Delta Theta in third.

The Football Season Begins Against Evansville
A high scoring Bulldog offense which accounted for
231 points and an average of better than four touch-
downs per game started the 1952 season by downing
Evansville 25-20. Trailing 20-19 with less than a min-
ute to play, the Bulldogs clicked on a 69-yard scoring
play to win the ball game. Fred Davis threw the touch-
down pass to Don Kelly who scampered across the goal
line for the second time in the evening.
By the end of the season, the Bulldogs had won five,
lost three, and tied one; but at the time the Pocket City
game was considered by some to be an upset for Coach
Paul D. Hinkle's inexperienced team. Norm Ellen-
berger and Johnny Riddle scored the Bulldogs' other
PRE-GAME PEP SESSIONS
A good football season is suggestive of many things other
than the actual playing of a game. It means pep sessions,
bonfires, parades, cheer leaders, and noise. The 1952 sea-
son, being a good one, had all these.
BUTLER 47. NORTH CENTRAL 6
The Bulldogs scored in every quarter to bury
a new opponent. North Central, under a 47-6 score.
Norm Ellenberger, the junior fullback punter from
New Haven, Indiana, who was to be named most
valuable player for the season, started the romp

A flurry of open houses, an
institution that has both tradition and utility
behind it, also contributed to making September 1952
a memorable month.
Innovated in the dim past and designed
to introduce the new pledge classes
to present students and faculty, the open house
enjoyed its usual place of importance in the
early fall activities at Butler, 1952.
No picture of fall activity at Butler
would be complete without
introducing another venerable institution
which played its part in making September 1952
a typical one.
The last word in Greek high society
is the exchange dinner,
a delightful reprieve from the work-a-day frenzy
of going to college.
IN THE GALLERY OF MEMORIES . . .
October, of course,
meant one thing to us
in 1952: HOMECOMING.
And Homecoming, in turn,
meant a myriad of other things,
like parades, house decorations,
pole fights, bonfires, queens,
and football games.

to a successful Homecoming
as Homecoming itself is to a successful October.

BUTLER 13. INDIANA STATE 13
Obviously over-confident after reading that Indiana
State had lost to Ball State, 33-0, the previous Saturday,
the Bulldogs had their hands full with the underrated Sycamores.
Fred Davis passed to Charley Johnson late in the
fourth quarter to pull Butler to within a point of State,
and then Johnson toed the ball through the uprights to tie the score.
John Riddle scored from 16 yards out for the first BU touchdown.
The Bulldogs dropped a heartbreaker to the Wabash Cavemen, 27-25,
three weeks earlier and followed this up
by wins over Ball State, 28-6, and St. Joseph, 33-0.
The Indiana State game brought Butler's
conference mark to three wins and one tie.
A week later, the Bulldogs lost to Valparaiso, 14-13,
which made their final conference standing 3-1-1, identical to the
standing of Valparaiso which inflicted the Bulldogs' only conference defeat.
CAMPUS CLUB CORONATION
Immediately after the announcement of her victory,
the glamorous Miss Cooksey

Students and alumni put the lid on another year
of Homecoming activities
by dancing to the music of Harry McCrady's orchestra
in the Egyptian Room of the Murat Temple.
Highlight of the annual affair,
sponsored by Scarlet Quill and Blue Key,
was the presentation of the Homecoming Queen for 1952,
Jane Cooksey (above right) and the alumna queen mother,
Mrs. Reece (Kathy Hart Zay), class of '47.
Mrs. Patterson is being escorted by Don Shaw.
Miss Cooksey is introduced by Patti Payne.
FALL AND FOOTBALL DRAW TO A CLOSE
Christmas vacation was staying at an obstinate distance
and "finals" loomed dangerously close behind,
but we were too absorbed with Panhel, class elections,
and football to notice the Imminency of either.
Still we were aware that fall,
with its registration and Homecoming,
was drawing to a hasty but eventful close.
Janie Knoebel, Kappa Kappa Gamma,
and Ray Stewart, Sigma Chi,
gathered honors at the annual
Women's Recreational Association
square dance in the Fieldhouse.
Miss Knoebel carried off the witch title,
while Stewart got the nod as scarecrow.
The nation was in a transport
of election-year frenzy in November of 1952,
and Butler was right in tune, caucuses and all.
November 19 reflected the national political scene in miniature
as students elected the officers
who would preside over their respective classes
for the remainder of the year.
Senior officers elected were Doug Hatton, president;
Bob Lincks, vice-president;
Shirley Stillwell, secretary; and Paul Ross, Jr., treasurer.
Junior officers elected were Skip Booher, president;
Frank Tardy, vice-president;
Janet Brucker, secretary; Jim Hogshire, treasurer;
and Bob Given, prom chairman.
Sophomores were Richard Garret, president;
John Shreve, vice-president;
Mary Jo Ober, secretary; Tom McCarthy, treasurer.
Freshman officers included
Roland Becker, president;
Dan Englehart, vice-president;
Carol Manwaring, secretary; and
Sherman Reeves, treasurer.

included Marjorie Lawrence, inter-
nationally acclaimed dramatic
soprano, who launched Butler's Jordan

Attention was usually divided between your date
and the stars that blinked from the roof.
Valparaiso 14, Bu+ler 13
Butler had to settle for a share of the ICC
title when they lost to a tough Valparaiso
team, 14-13. Jolni Riddle scored both touch-
downs for the Bulldogs, one on an 87-yard
pass play with Fred Davis the thrower. Riddle
caught the ball on his 30, and weaved 70
yards for the score, a block by Gene Mangin
on the Valpo safety man springing Riddle
into the open.
The other touchdown came on a delayed
hand-off to Riddle by Davis, a modification
of the statue of liberty play. Riddle covered
the 29 yards to pay dirt.
Butler 33, Washington 20
Playing their best game of the season, Butler
powered over three last quarter touchdowns to
beat a good Washington team, 33-20. The two
teams played to a 13-13 halftime tie. Wash-
ington drove 63 yards in the third quarter to
take the lead.
Don Campbell caught a touchdown pass (his
second of the game), and Don Kelly ran for
two scores in the last quarter to salt the game
away. Kelly played more offense in this game
than in any other game since early in the season,
and his running was the difference between the
two teams in the game. Kelly was forced to the
defense early in the season when Joe Adams
received a broken nose and was unable to back
up the line on defense.
Western Reserve 42, Butler 14
Western Reserve scored four times in the sec-
ond half to turn a close game into a rout, and
send the Bulldogs down to their worst defeat of
the 1952 season.
Norm Ellenberger scored just before the end
of the half to pull the Bulldogs up to the short
end of a 7-14 halftime score, but after the sec-
ond half started everything went wrong from
Butler's standpoint, and the final score became,
42-14. George Freyn scored his first touchdown
of the season, and Butler's last when he grabbed
a Fred Davis aerial late in the fourth quarter.
Four Touchdowns Per Game Lead Bulldogs to Winning Season
A high scoring Bulldog offense which ac-
counted for 231 points, an average of better
than four touchdowns per game, led the 1952
Butler football team to a winning season. They
won five, lost three, and tied one.
Due to a mid-season slump the football squad
was able to gain just a share of the Indiana
Collegiate Conference championship. Butler
won three conference games in a row before tie-
ing Indiana State and losing to Valparaiso.
This placed Butler's final conference mark
at 3-1-1, identical to the standing of Valparaiso,
which inflicted the Bulldogs' only conference
Indiana State led Butler throughout most of
the ball game until the Bulldogs scored and
converted in the final minute to gain a 13-13 tie

DECEMBER WAS SHORT BUT CROWDED . .
As the first semester closed down around us,
we found December to be a short month,
but one crowded with events.
December was a month of last-minute campaigns,
like the Collegian Cheer Drive and the Blood Drive.
Relaxation from the competitive fury of these drives
was afforded by the student players' production
of Androcles and the Lion and Riders to the Sea.
December also meant the beginning of basketball season,
an event that was to absorb so much
of our time and interest in the coming semester.
Two Furious Campaigns are Waged
The annual Collegian Cheer Drive, a campaign
to provide clothing for the needy at Christmas time,
was won this year by the Phi Belt's.
Pictured above is Beverly Siegal whose whole-
hearted support is being appreciated by
Tom McCarthy, Sigma Nu, Chairman of the Drive.
(At left) Refreshments are being served
after students contributed to the blood drive,
sponsored this year by Kappa Alpha Theta.
Co-chairmen of this highly successful drive
were Rolene Woodward and Pat Martin.
The Student Players Meant Relaxation
Theater-in-the-Round productions were presented
of "Androcles and the Lion" and "Riders to the Sea."
The two plays represented
the joint effort of Jordan's Department of Drama,
Butler University's Department of Speech and Drama,
and the Butler Student Players.
Cast in the leads of the Shaw comedy were Bill McAnallen,
as Androcles, and Norm Bess as the lion. Charlotte Green
portrayed Maurya in "Riders to the Sea."

but acadennically it was our
most significant and memorable.

Kappa Kappa Gamma celebrated an anniversary,
and two Jordan students received national recognition.
In basketball it was a month of conquest.

fiably proud when national recognition was accorded them in
1953. Miss Charlotte Schwartz, a student at Jordan College

Basketball for January
The Bulldogs opened play in the ICC conference the same
way thev closed the '51-'52 campaign — winning. Evansville
was the victim in the Pocket City, 74-61.
Playing one of its best games of the season, Butler exploded
for 58 points in the second half, burying DePauw under a
93-68 avalanche; the Bulldogs then won their fourth straight
game by turning in a workmanlike 65-53 win over Wabash

Sycamores, 78-64. Butler experienced that inevitable "off
night" when the Pumas' came from 11 points behind at half-
time to lace the Bulldogs by 15, 72-57.
Then came the second win of the season over Wabash, 87-58.
Hardworking Don Holloway experienced the best night of
his varsity career by leading his teammates to a tight 74-70

A LIHLE MONTH— A BIG SCHEDULE . . .
February was a month of manifold potentialities:
Valentine's Day, first full month of the second semester,
Drift Beauty Queen Contest,
the close of basketball season,
the Theta Sig Banquet, and Freshman Rose Dance.
The Sigma Nu's further evidenced the progress
of Butler housing facilities
by acquiring a spacious new home.
Drift Beauty Contest
Five Drift Beauties were chosen on the
night of February 6 from a field of twenty-
five of Butler's loveliest coeds. For the first
time the Drift sponsored a dance after the
presentation of awards to the winners. Bud
Helms and his Commanders played for the
contest and dancing in the cafeteria.
Bea Douglass was selected as Queen of
Queens by judges Jeanne Reed, fashion co-
ordinator for the Wm. H. Block Co.; David
MiUigan, director of WFBM-TV public rela-
tions; and Col. Ben K. Armstrong, head of
Butler's Air Force ROTC. Bob Morrison, pop-
ular disc jockey from WIRE, acted as the
master of ceremonies.

New Sigma Nu House
Only a few months after the Delt
purchase of a new residence and just
a little over a year since the Sigma
Chi construction, Sigma Nu acquired
a comparable mansion, which further
indicated that Butler's housing facili-
ties were moving upward and outward.
The estate pictured at right is con-
tiguous to the new Delt house.
Theta Sigma Phi Banquet
Theta Sigma Phi, women's national professional
journalism honorary, honored outstanding Butler
coeds at their annual Matrix Table banquet and
program held February 11 in Atherton Center.
Mrs. Betty Hinckle Dunn, national president of
Theta Sig, was the featured speaker.
Freshman Rose Queen
After a precarious start, the Freshman Rose Dance was successfully
held at the Lincoln Hotel, Travertine Room. Because of slow ticket sales,
and warnings from the Dean's office, it was feared the dance would be
called off. The freshies gave the extra push that meant success by con-
tributing one dollar a piece until the dance expenses were underwritten.
A large crowd saw Ronnie Becker, dance chairman, present the crown
and trophy to Eileen Reis, candidate from Alpha Chi Omega.
Basketball Games for February
Butler took revenge for the Indiana
and Notre Dame reversals on Ball
State, clipping the Cardinals, 82-52.
Keith Greve snapped out of his two
game slump by tallying 21. Jim
Crosley held high-scoring Cardinal
guard. Jack Cross to one point and
threw in 13 of his own. Butler canned
30 of 73 field shots for a percentage
The Sycamores inflicted Butler's
second ICC reversal by protecting a
one-point lead the last minute and a
half of the game. Dick Atha scored
four free throws in the last 90 seconds
when Butler fouled trying to gain pos-
session of the ball.
Butler evened the score with St.
Joseph for a defeat earlier in the sea-
son at Rensselaer by clobbering the
Pumas, 85-64. For the second straight
home game the Bulldogs hit better
than 40% from the field.
For the second time of the season,
Butler took DePauw into camp, win-
ning 75-67. The Tigers made more of
a game out of it this time than in the
earlier encounter when Butler estab-
lished a new record for points scored
in one game.
Butler made it nine victories out of
10 starts on its home floor by breezing
past Valparaiso, 75-53, on the strength
of .411 accuracy; and completed the
season by losing to Ball State, 77-54.
Best Season Since '48 for '53 Bulldogs
Butler played its best season since the 1948-49 campaign by winning
14 of 23 games during the 1952-53 season. The Bulldogs' schedule included
seven games with Big Ten teams, and home games with the other five mem-
bers of the Indiana Collegiate Conference, Notre Dame, Wabash, and
Keith Greve, sophomore forward from Waveland, Indiana, took a long
step toward establishing himself as the scoringest player in Butler history
by totaling 394 points for the season. Jim Crosley, Don Holloway, and
Ray Stewart were other solid members of the first five. Harry Porter, Bob
Reed, and Norm EUenberger shared duty at the fifth starting position.
Mike Radkovic, the team's only senior, and Stewart, who plans to
enroll in med-school at Indiana next fall, are the only two men who will not
return for the 1953-54 season.
The Bulldogs won seven of 10 ICC games, good enough to tie them with
St. Joseph for the conference championship. Butler won three of the seven
encounters with Big Ten competition. Victories were over Purdue, Ohio
State, and Michigan.
Pictured below are Jim Crosley, Don Holloway, Keith Greve, Harry Porter, anc

title of "Typical Social Organization
on Campus" was Pi Beta Phi. The Pi

tion in Drift sales.

Holcomb and Brown Celebrate
The 1953 Drift would scarcely be complete without
a picture of the personality to whom it is dedicated,
James Irving Holcomb. Mr. Holcomb's projected dream
of making the Butler University campus one of the most
scenic in the midwest is rapidly being realized in the
Botanical gardens (pictured on pages 20-21).
Nor would any Drift be complete without a picture
of Butler's "Grand Old Man," Hilton U. Brown, adver-
tised in The Collegian as being 94 years young in 1953.
Pictured above are James Irving Holcomb, the personality behind Butler's Botani-
cal Gardens, and hiilton U. Brown, Butler's illustrious patriarch.
Coach Galvin Walker's freshman-dominated squad was victorious in
four meets last spring while taking the back seat in three meets. The "thinly-
clads" lost both the ICC and Little State track crowns, placing second in
the ICC and fourth in Little State.
The Blue-and-White runners set five new records in the ICC meet.
Captain Frank Campbell accounted for two — a 22.3 second 220 and a 50.1
second quarter mile. Freshman John Owensby set two moi^e — a 4:35.1 mile
and a 10:12.2 two-mile. The fifth record was a 3:30.2 mile relay set by
Glenn Meyer, Tom Wetzler, Russ Greenburg, and Frank Campbell.
Of the ten freshmen on the team, the three most outstanding were John
Owensby, Gaton Allen, and Jodean Crist. The only one of the trio returning
this year is Jodean Crist.

chan g ed them?
You don't have to look far for the answer.
Every person and business in America is
free to outdo the other fellow — to produce
something better — so more people will buy it.
That's why this year's cars are sleeker and
more powerful than last year's. That's why
service stations (like ours) keep getting
more modern and gleaming, offering finer
and finer petroleum products.
Competition among tens of thousands of
independent businesses in the petroleum
industry makes such progress possible — and
As long as our economic system works that
way, this will be a pretty wonderful and
exciting country, won't it, in which to live
and work and get ahead?

In 1871, the first public water supply in Indianapolis began operation. It was
not until 1903, however, that the Indianapolis Water Company caught up with Butler.
At that time, water mains were laid in Butler Avenue and University Avenue, adjacent
to the Irvington campus. Today, a safe and adequate water supply surrounds Butler
and from the campus can be seen the canal, another landmark for the homing student.
