Fort Wayne, Indiana, November 26. 1951 



by Don and Margie 

Times certainly have chang- 
ed, college-wise that is. A few 
weeks ago I had occasion to 
browse through a book about 
college life in the 1920's and 
noticed many changes between 
then and now. Almost every- 
thing is different now. Gone 
are the beaded dress and bob- 
bed hair. Missing also are the 
raccoon-skin coat and the Nor- 
folk jacket. Another accessory 
of the Twenties, the hip flask, 
has been tossed into the dis- 
card. The red Stutz Bearcat 
■and the Model A Ford are gone 
from the collegiate scene also. 
These articles may be gone, but 
they are not forgotten. 

Speaking of change, the Cen- 
ter itself appears to be in for 
some renovating. Several weeks 
-ago President Wells and sever- 
al trustees were observed walk- 
ing around, looking at the var- 
ious rooms, and examining , the 
fixtures. Perhaps the over- 
crowded situation will soon be 
at an end. 

An important topic of discus- 
sion around the Center these 
days is the question of the bask- 
etball team. In all my eaves^ 
dropping, I have yet to hear < 
^alicLargument against it. Tht 
question of material has been 
put forth several times. But it 
seems to me that we have re- 
ceived a goodly portion of 
players from the various high 
schools. The entire question is 
too long to discuss here, but any 
worthwhile comments will be 
published in this column. Mere- 
ly place your comment, addres- 
sed to OUT OF THE HAT.

Have you heard strains of 
music every Monday evening 
from 8:00 to 9:30 coming from 
Room 103? If you have, you 
have probably heard the phrase, 
'plenty good room," very fre- 
quently. This song expresses 
very well the opinion of Ray- 
mond S. Beights, director of the 
Indiana University Center 
Chorus. There is plenty of 
room in the choir for new mem- 
bers, especially basses and bari- 
tones. Anyone interested in 
singing is invited to come next 
Monday evening and show his

at the Center. He directs the 
North Side High School A Ca-

Tech, Men's Glee Club. He is 
also organist for the Zion Lu- 
theran Church. 

There are no engagements 
for the Chorus as yet. but M 
Beights states that there are 
many opportunities as soon as 
the Chorus learns some songs 
and obtains a few more mem 
bers. These engagements may 
include singing at the Center 
for special occasions, at church- 
es, and for organizations in 
Fort Wayne.

During the last week of Sep- 
tember the Indiana University 
Center was honored with a vis- 
it from the President of Indiana 
University. Herman B. Wells. 
the Board of Trustees, and oth- 
er campus dignitaries. The main 
purpose of the visit was an in- 
spection tour of the building 
and facilities to determine just 

hat improvements could and 
should be made. 

According to Dr. Ralph 
Broyles, Director of the Cen- 
ter, "no exact and concrete de- 
cision has yet been made" con- 
cerning possible improvements. 
However, it was stated that bet- 
ter library facilities, a better 
student lounge and more equip- 
ment for student activities, more 
and better offices for part-time 
instructors, and a general re- 
habilitation of the Center build- 
ing were some of the necessary 
improvements which could be

Smoke-ups," the popular 
name for those mid-semester 
reports, have again been sent 
to those students whose average 
n any subject has fallen to a 
D" or below. If you have re- 
ceived in the mail in the last 
day or two an official-looking 
letter which begins, "According 
to our mid-semester reports," 
you had better ease back in the 
closest chair before continuing 
with this unwelcome bit of 
news, for very probably you 
are the victim of a "smoke-up," 
and unfortunately for some stu- 
dents, "smoke-up week" rolls 
around like clockwork every 

The purpose of mid-semester 
reports, of course, is obvious. 
It is primarily to notify the stu- 
dent, as well as the parents, 
that "Johnnie" or "Susie" is not 
progressing in his or her college 
work in a satisfactory manner. 
Smoke-ups are danger signals 
provided by the University for 
the students' benefit. 

If the student has the mis- 
fortune of receiving one of these 
letters, the Center has provided 
a means by which at least some 
of his difficulties may be ironed 
out, It is the job of the Cent- 
er's Resident Counselor, Mr. 
Robert Towns, not only to help 
the student plan his course at 
the beginning of each semester 
but to aid him solve any prob- 
lems that may arise during the 
semester. It is strongly urged 
by Center officials that students 
who are on the "smoke-up" list 
talk with Mr. Towns and dis- 
cuss any difficulties thev may 
have. The Counselor will be in 
his office, Room 301, from 9:00 
a.m. to 12:00 noon, and 1:30 
p.m. to 5=00 a.m. on November 
26. an 27. Also he will be in 
the office from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 
p.m. on November 27 and 29. 


The Hick Hop, a square 
dance for I. U. Center students, 
was held at the autditorium 
Saturday evening, November 
17, from 8 to 12. Sponsored by 
the Student Congress, the affair 
ittracted a jovial crowd. Dur 
ng the first hour round (regu- 
lar) dancing was featured, and 
from nine o'clock on, Wilson 
Schroeder called square danc- 
ing. During intermissions the 
group enjoyed cokes and potato 
chips in the Lounge. 

Committees responsible for 
the successful gathering were: 
Records and Food: Muriel 
Hallgren; Decorations: Phyllis 
Berning. chairman, Sam Tren- 
tadue. Jack Kelty, Pauline Beel- 
er, Gloria Madden, and Carol 
Kroemer: Publicity: Mary Ann 
Mayer, chairman, Gayle 
Strong, Margie Smith, Sam 
Trentadue and Sharon Kroem- 
er; Straightening up: Don Bow- 
ser. Jack Kelty, Gloria Madden, 
and Rodger Martin. 

Word To The Wise: — 
Grooming may not cpen the 
^oor to success, but it certainly 
nils the hinges. 

At the beginning of the semester twenty-four students. 
twelve freshmen and twelve sophomores, were elected as 
representatives of the entire student body to the I. U. Center 
Student Congress. John Koomjohn was elected president; Jack 
Kelty, vice-president: Mary Ann Mayer, secretary, and Sam 
Trentadue, treasurer. The job 

of the Congress is to take care 
of student affairs and to plan all 
social events for the year. Dr. 
Ralph Broyles, director, serves 
as advisor for the group, which 
meets every Friday in Room 

So that you of the student 
body may meet your Congress- 
men, each was interviewed. 

The first Congress member to 
be interviewed was Thelma 
Webster, a sophomore, who 
comes from Monroeville and is 
majoring in elementary educa- 
tion. Her major interest is mu- 
sic, and she dislikes art in- 

Pauline Ford, also a sopho- 
more, hails from South Side 
High School. She is also ma- 
joring in elementary education. 
Her number one interest in life 
is to become a good teacher. 
Pauline enjoys all her subjects, 
especially speech and nature 
and practice of play. 

Ivan Lebamoff, sophomore, 
spends much of his time work- 
ng in the Liberty Grocery on 
Clinton, but still finds time to 
declare history his favorite sub- 
ect. Ivan plans to be a lawyer. 
Basketball is the highlight in 
Bob Hullmger's life. Bob. who 
also comes to the Center from 
Monroeville, says he wants to 
become an athletic coach at 
some public school in Indiana. 

Margie Smith, a soph who 
went to Elmhurst High school. 
is majoring in Eng.-Amer. lit- 
erature and plans to go into 
library work. She is crazy 
about music — everything from 
ballet to "Muskrat Ramble," 
literature, and Spanish. 

Bob Hanauer, another Con- 
gress member, is a freshman 

from South Side High School. 

He said that he is majoring in 
business law; but as to his num- 
ber one interest, he is not too 
sure. His favorite subject is lit- 
erature, but algebra tests— ugh! 
Another freshman from South 
Side High School is Muriel 
Hallgren. She is studying to 
become a kindergarten teacher. 
Her number one interest is men. 
Public speaking, which she does 
not have time to take, is hi 
favorite subject; and she says 
she has no dislikes. 

Vic Tannehill, a freshman 
from North Side High School 
the next member we inter- 
viewed. He is majoring in 
business. Records interest him 
mensely, and he also enjoys 
history very much. On the otn- 
hand. English composition 
does not rate very high with 

Phyllis Berning has also been 
contributing much to the Con- 
aress. She is a freshman from 
South Side High School and is 
majoring in education. She was 
mum when asked about her 
number one interest; but, as far 
as studies go. her favorite is 
"Nature and Practice of Play" 
and her least favorite is home 

One of our future dentists is 
Dick Ellenwood who is a Erosh 
at the Center after graduating 

from North Side High School. 
English literature, women, and 
chemistry are his favorite sub- 
jects while English composition 
and he do not get along very 
well together. 

Mary Ann Mayer, a fresh- 
man from South Side High 
School, has been a very busy 
Congress member. Her ambi- 
tion is to be a business teacher, 
and her number one interest is a 
plebe at the Naval Academy. 
Speech and literature rate high 
witfe her. but she says the psy- 
chology tests are terrible. 

Jack Kelty, vice-president of 
the Congress, is a sophomore 
and hails from Central Catholic 
High School. ■ He is majoring in 
business, but his main interest 
is just plain living. World poli- 
tics interest him greatly while 
he detests the subject of the 
draft board. 

A girl who is a freshman and 
came from South Side High 
School is Pauline Beeler. Her 
future will be spent in the field 
of nursing, but she says her in- 
terests cannot be limited to a 
special field. Her favorite sub- 
jects are chemistry and English 
composition, but she does not 
think very highly of history. 

Our representative from 
Bluff ton is Dick French, a soph- 
omore. He is majoring in pre- 
medics, but he says he is highly 
interested in women. He chose 
chemistry for his favorite sub- 
ject and the draft board is also 
his least favorite subject. 

Don Bowser, a South Side 
High School graduate, is now in 
his second year at Indiana Uni- 
versity Center and is studying 
to be a lawyer. He would not 
answer when asked about his 
major interest. His favorite

In that a number of Center 
students may be involuntarily 
beckoned by Uncle Sam in the 
near future, it may be some- 
what comforting to know that 
many draftees will be eligible 
to receive full college credit for 
the courses in which they are 
rolled. According to latest 
reports from the Campus, induc- 
tees who complete twelve weeks 
of a semester are to be granted 
full college credit. They will, 
of course, receive the grade 
which the quality of their work 
warrants at the time of their 
induction. If the student feels 
that the grade is unsatisfactory, 
he may request an examination 
which will determine definitely 
the grade that he will receive 
for that particular course. 

For these regulations to be 
effective, the student must sub- 
mit within a week after his 
withdrawal from school a letter 
signed by his commanding offi- 
cer that he has been inducted 
into the armed forces. The stu- 
dent must attend classes up to 
the time of his induction.

A Message from Dr. Broyles 

The Fort Wayne Center was established in 1917 and h 
been maintained to provide an educational service to the resi- 
dents of Northeastern Indiana. From a minimum of four classes 
and about thirty students, the Center must now offer more than 
125 classes to accommodate its student body. 

Much of the success enjoyed by the Center has been due 
to the alert and co-operative students. Durinq my ten-year 
association with the Center, I have made many cherished ac- 
quaintances amonq its students. It has been noted that some 
student groups were more co-operative than others. I am 
positive that it can be accurately stated that this year's group 
is among the best. 

Student backing of extra-curricular activities is outstanding. 
Although a better attendance at the October square dance might 
have been expected, the turnout was good for a first activity. 
It is good to know that interest in our publication is keen. Future 
activities will undoubtedly be welcomed and supported. 

However, it must be presumed that the reason for enrollment 
in the Fort Wayne Center is to begin or to continue an edu- 
cational objective. Diligence in the preparation of class assign- 
ments should be as forthcoming as that directed toward the 
extra-curricular activities. 

An education may be obtained only after the expending of 
much hard work, time, and money. Americans the world over 
are perhaps known for their sharp bargaining. In a certain 
sense you. as a student, are bargaining for an education — you 
spend your money and time. Be certain that sufficient hard 
work is forthcoming to achieve your objective. You owe it to 
yourself, to your friends and relatives, and to the complex society 
in which you live. 

Dr. Ralph Broyles. 

"Saturday's Hero" 

1 The Universal-International Picture Company has been 
giving a lot of bally-hoo about its new picture, "Saturday s 

At the top of this list of tele- 
phone "unfavorites" is the wolf. 
If he is told that his party is on 

other line, he usually ans- 
wers with "May I hold, please? 
Oh, not your hand — the line!" 
At this point, thinking he's real- 
ly clever, he continues with "I'll 
bet you don't know who this is, 
do you?" There are really re- 
spectable business men who 
show their fiendish features in 
this manner! 

Of course, there is always 
the type who asks if "Knuckle- 
head," "Squarehead," "The 
Old Man," or "Junior," is in. 
One is considered quite ineffi- 
cient if she doesn't know who 
any one of these characters is, 

Another type is the warbler 
who sings in a rhythmic voice, 
"I'm going to Tallahassee next 
month, and I understand the 
Chamber of Commerce would 
be an authority on what clothes 
to take with me, and could you 
tell me just what the weather is 
like down there so I will know 
what to wear?" She, too, rates 
high on the list of unpopulars; 
for besides being greatly misin- 
formed, she puts the operator 
(if you will excuse the expres- 
sion) "behind the eight ball." 

Then there is always the bold 
type who charges in with. "I 
bought a 1951 Webster's Una- 
bridged Standard Dictionary 

GREETINGS guys and j New 

for $37.50. 


Hero?' for quite some time. It is supposed to be a startling 
expose of the scandal of the so-called "kept men" of college 
football. To put it more simply, it has been lauded as a por- 
trayal of professionalism in college football as it now exists. 

After seeing the picture, however, we were not very con- 
vinced as to how notorious and widespread this practice is 
supposedly becoming. The picture fails miserably in this re- 
spect. The age-old Hollywood practices of tense drama, exag 
geration of the truth, and a happy ending, spoil the effect the 
movie is supposed to have. 

We see a football star, portrayed by John Derek, who is so 
mute and bewildered throughout the show that he becomes 
disgusting after a while. He meets a girl, the daughter of his 
wealthy "benefactor," and. of course, falls in love with her. 
She persuades him to quit school and marry her, which he finally 
does after being injured by an opposing player who was paid 
a hundred dollars to take him out of the game. These are just 
a few of the many exaggerations which "wreck the movie's 
supposedly "amazingly frank disclosures, etc." 

In the final analysis, we must concede that as entertainment 
the picture is fairly good. The drama is exciting, the love story 
is moving, and there are some very good football scenes. But 
the advertising hailed the expose idea so long and loud that that 
is the thing we looked for and failed to find. Hence the movie 
seemed a flop. 

I wonder if 
Chamber of Commerce will 
buy it for $25.00. I'm finished 
using it now, and besides the 
Chamber doesn't have a 1951 
Webster's Unabridged Diction- 
ary, does it?" Of course, the 
receptionist does not have auth- 
ority to order or buy supplies 
for her employer. Besides, very 
probably we don't want a 1951 
Webster's Unabridge Diction- 
ary. Also in the bold group is 
the woman who asks, "Dearie, 
can't get my car into reverse 
to get out of that parking space 
right across the street there, so 
will you watch; and if I don't 
get out in about five minutes, 
yoa call my husband and 
ask him what I should do? Be 
sure to watch out!" Individu- 
als of this type, believe me, are 
ooked upon in a most undesir- 
able manner. 

Last, but not least, is the im 
patient "hurry-up" type, who 
usually manages to irk the oper- 
ator to no end. He seems to 
think that his call is the call, the 
only call, and the most import- 
ant call of all calls. He con- 
stantly demands that the oper- 
ator "hurry just a little" and 
give him his party immediately. 
This, the receptionist realizes. 
she must do; but she usually 
prefers to do it without his ad- 
vice and assistance. 

From these examples, 

gals! This column is the first 
of four columns that will try to 
present the hits and the high- 
lights of the record world. We 
will review and preview some 
of the songs that are being cur- 
rently released. Each column 
will also give you the "low- 
down" on one of recorddom s 
leading bands. So that's the 
scoop gang, hope we can please 
you all ! 

FOR OUR FIRST band re- 
view it is fitting that we choose 
the first band of the land. In 
the annual Billboard Disc Jock- 
ey Survey the Ray Anthony 
combo was named "Band of the 
Year." Ray pulled 990 votes 
in beating out Ralph Flanagan 
for the honors. Incidentally 
the "deejays" rated Les Brown 
third and Stan Kenton fourth. 

MR. ANTHONY made his 
debut n the West Coast in Hol- 
lywood last Novembe. He 
features a style of music similar 
to that of the great Glenn 
Miller. The band itself is load- 
ed with talent. Buddy Wise. 
who was outstanding with such 
bands as Gene Krupa and 
Woody Herman, is just one of 
the fine instrumentalists in the 
Anthony aggregation. Kenny 
Trimble, trombone, and Leo 
(Cook's Tour) Anthony, bari- 
tone sax. are others who have 
ade the band popular. 
VOCALS ARE ably handled 
by Tommy Mercer and Gloria 
Craig. Tommy was with Char- 
lie Spivak and Eddie Duchin. 
He is now going "great guns" 
th Anthony. Gloria Craiq 
was signed up by Ray after she 
won Freddie Martin's "Band of 
Tomorrow" contest in San 
Francisco. She has shown loads 
of talent on recent recordings. 

AT PRESENT Mr. Anthony 
and the boys are on a series of 
one-night stands throughout the 
Northwest. In December he 
will open at the Statler Hotel in 

mightly glad to see and hear the 
recorder of such terrific platters 
as "My Prayer," "Tenderly," 
"Pretty Eyed Baby," and 
"Melancholy Rhapsody" when- 
ever he gets around to Fort 

The top tune of the last few 
weeks has been Tony Bennefs 
rendition of "Because of You!" 
Tony, who was comparatively 
Unknown two months ago, real- 
ly hit the jackpot on this disc. 
His "Cold, Cold. Heart" wax- 
ing is also high on everybody's 
list. "It's No Sin" by Eddy 
Howard rates raves. April 
Stevens, whose sultry style has 
made her very popular with all 
the males, has a smoother re- 
cording of "And So to Sleep 
Again," which is terrific! 
"Down Yonder." a song with a 
Dixieland beat, has found loads 
of recording artists ready to 
wax it. Joe "Fingers" Carr, 
Freddy Martin, and up-and- 
coming Champ Butler have all 
done a fine job with the tune.

Editor's Note: 

Although the Center has no literary magazine, as such, we 
are, of course, at all times interested in promoting better writing. 
In an effort to place before readers some of the works of our 
budding geniuses, we have requested our composition instructors 
to submit to us a few of the themes which they consider superior 
for humor, exposition, narration, or description. The following 
theme was chosen by your staff to represent the cream of the 
composition crop.

People come in all sorts, 
sizes, and descriptions. As they 
come, so do their voices. Any 
patient {or impatient) telephone 
receptionist will readily verify 
this. She knows. She hears 
them all day. Some of the char- 
acters she speaks with often re- 
mind her oE animals who inhabit 
the zoo. She hears wolves. 

meek lambs, bold and roaring 
lions, purring kittens, sinq- 
songy warblers, and certainly 
the impatient animal called the 
donkey who commonly makes 
himself known by another 
name. In that I am a recep- 
tionist, I would like to describe 
a few of our so-called custom 

most telephone users are of the 
rude, crude, selfish, and un- 
reasonable category. This is 
not the case. Generally, they 
are courteous and considerate. 
It is the run of the mill variety 
mentioned, however, that make 
a telephone receptionist's job a 
bit difficult at times. It might 
be well for individuals to ex- 
amine themselves to see if they 
fit into any one of these classes. 
People come in all sorts, sizes, 
and descriptions. 

I love the paper — 

I think it's swell! 

When it's being passed out 

I run pell-mell 

To get my copy 

And read each line. 

The stories and columns 

I think are fine. 

I laugh at the jokes, 

I read of the games, 

I note all the news, 

I know everyone's flames. 

When I praise the paper 
I scorn those who laugh. 
I'm really most loval — 
I'm on the staff ! !

as first associated with WRJN 
t Racine, Wisconsin, as an 
announcer. From there he 
came to Fort Wayne where he 
was affiliated with both WGL

this also forced the station to 
give him a raise.) Continuing 
his travels he next worked at

we have the always basic black, 
brown, grey and navy blue ac- 
cented with accessories of red, 
cinnamon, bronze and canary 
yellow. These colors can be 
used for around the clock wear. 
As any girl knows, an impor- 
tant part of her wardrobe is that 
part known as strictly sports- 
wear. In the new fall selections, 
separates are the latest. These 
include the slim pencil skirt and 
the full gored skirt matched 
with the new turtleneck sweat- 
ers, suede, or corduroy weskits 
and tailored blouses. 

The fabrics in these skirts are 
of the old standby gabardine, 
wool tweed, and brightly hued 
corduroy. (Here's a tip; cor- 
duroy can be washed, but don't 
wring out— just let it drip dry). 
To set off these combinations 
are the beautiful metal belts of 
hammered silver. (Better watch 
that waistline, gals!) 

For after six, or date time, the 
paper doll silhouette is the latest 
for those big evenings out. The 
crinoline helps to give this effect 
under a full gored skirt. A dark 
taffeta with a velvet hat and 
purse is really the thing to catch 
that guy's eye! Also in style 
is the knit dress in varied colors 
with either bat-wing sleeves or 
three-quarter elbow length 
sleeves. Match this with a bit 
of sparkling jewelry and you'll 
be a sparkling event in the eve- 

Always important is the basic 
suit in the new flannel or in a 
good tweed. This is good for 
wearing to a classroom, to a 
ball game, or on a casual date. 

Last, but not least, we come 
to shoes. As you can tell by 
looking at any of your friends 
shoes, crepe-soled suedes, moc- 
casins, and the new white bucks 
are the rage. For that big eve- 
ning out there are the new shoes 
of two textures, either suede and 
calfskin or flannel and kidskin. 

And lest we forget, those In- 
diana pep shirts — these are 
available in red or white. You'll 
be proud to wear them to ball 
games, wiener bakes, hayrides, 
and square dances or just 
around home. Better get yours 
at the school bookstore, now!

Bender Report 
Reveals Much 

Jerry Lewis has nothing on 
us! Around the Center it's 
"Sure, I've Been Kissed." To 
prove this statement, here are a 
few of the answers received to 
the question. "Do you remem- 
ber your first kiss?" Believe 
them or not. 

Carol Kroemer: "I have been 
kissed so many times I don't 
remember the first." 

Joanna Holbrook: "Why 
don't you ask about my last 
one? I don't remember the first 
one; I may remember the last 

Dick Ellenwood* "When I 
was a mean little brat in kin- 
dergarten. I planted my first 
kiss on the lips of this cute littl 
blonde. The honorable occasion 
was her "birthday. This occur 
rence was the beginning of a 
beautiful romance. 1 finally 
broke up with her one hundred 
and ninety-nine "kisses later." 

Ned Huss: "Do I remember 
my first kiss? Yes I do. It 
happened not too long ago on a 
cool, spring evening. My date 
and I were sitting in the car 
talking; she was doing all the 
talking, and I was listening. So. 
to qet her quiet. 1 kissed her.'"" 

Paul Fox: "Yea. 1 remember 
my first kiss, but 1 try to for- 
get it — ■ wnat a 'homely lookin" 

Gayle Strong: "The first 
grade cloak room was a very 
popular place to the six-year- 
olds. It was there I received 
my first kiss. My cute little 
blonde-haired beau caught me 
back there and kissed me on the 
- cheek. The thrill of this excit- 
inq moment was squelched 
when the teacher strolled back 
and broke it up.™* 

Muriel "Hallgren: "We were 
leaving my aunt's house, and 
my mother thougnt it would be 
cute if my cousin kissed me 
qoodbye. He did. "We were 
both embarrassed, but I've had

I am afraid to name the date." 

Bob Scholes: "My first kiss

grades. This smart boy who so 
tenderly kissed me on the cheek 
happened to be the most dis- 
liked boy in the school, and he 
resolved to be talked about 
more. I, to my dislike, was 
sitting next to him. Suddenly 
he leaned over the aisle, put his 
hands on my desk- and pecked 
me on the cheek. My face not

Symbol of football supremacy 
between Indiana and Purdue, 
the Old Oaken Bucket, won by 
the Boilermakers last Saturday, 
has in its 25 years of spirited 
rivalry become one of the coun- 
try's most famed trophies. 

I. U. Professor 
Writes Books 
In Spare Time 

Our psychology instructor, 
Dr. Engle, seems to be a very 
busy man. Even though a great 
deal of his time is devoted to 
his work as a psychologist at 
the State School, to his teaching 
in connection with the Center, 
and to his wife and three sons, 
he has succeeded in doing a 
great 'deal of writing- This 
writing has required hard work 
and the burning of considerable 
midnight oil. 

In 1950 the second edition of 
Dr. Engle's high school text 
book, Psychology: Its Princi- 
ples and Applications, was pub- 
lished. Two years ago Dr. 
Engle started writing a work- 
book to be used with this text. 
Last summer his "Workbook in 
Psychology" was published. 
Since that time he -has been 
working on a second teachers' 
manual wnich is to accompany 
h'is earlier writings. Dr. Engle 
is now working on a set of 
standardized examinations in 
psychology. The information 
needed to belp make up f.Kese 
examinations was gathered by 
a thorough study of a series of 
textbooks by various authors. 

"W'hen Dr. Engle was looking 
for a proper textbook to be used 
in high school classes, be failed 
to find one that was suitable. 
Upon noticing this situation, he 
decided that "fee would try to 
write a text of his own. Since 
then he has proved that be was 
successful in his endeavor. 

Hoosier Hoedown 

The social calendar for tne 

fall semester here at the Foal 
Wayne Center of Indiana Uni- 
versity opened with a square 
dance at McMillan Park. This 
first event sponsored by the 
Student Congress was a great 
success, despite the fact that it 
had to compete with the prep 
football headliner between Cen- 
tral Catholic and North Side. 
After the sguare dance, refresh- 
ments were served. Many con- 
sidered this the best activity of 
the evening. Some people never 
seem to be filled up The Con- 
gress urges those who attended 
to keep up their fine spirit and 
those who didn't attend to take 
a more active part in the re 
mainder of the social calenda 
for the year. 

Rules Given 
To Students 

In that procedures, regula- 
tions, and whatnot are always 
confusing, especially for fresh- 
men, we have collected some 
material concerning Center reg- 
ulations which might be of value 
to you. 

The initial headache, o f 
course, for both the students 
and Center officials is enroll- 
ment, and it should be pointed 
out regarding enrollment that 
there is a regular registration 
and enrollment period immed- 
iately preceding the regular se- 
mester. The registration and 
enrollment period next semester 
will be from January 28 to Feb- 
ruary 2. It is important that 
students intending to begin 
their college work the second 
semester come in that week to 
get theiT programs approved 
and their fees paid. 

Also for next semester there 
will be a pre-enrojlment period 
for students attending the C 
ter at the present time. All 
currently enrolled students who 
are working toward a degree 
should come in during the last 
three weeks of the current se- 
mester and have their program: 
approved. Program blanks may 
be filled out in the Counselor's 
office, Room 301. 

The second troublesome 
problem that confronts some 
students is the matter of witb- 
drawals. Students who wish to 
withdraw from a course must 
•make formal application in writ- 
ing at the office and must have 
paid all fees due at the date of 
the application regardless of 
class attendance. It is pointed 
out in the General Bulletin that 
merely notifying the instructor 
"does not constitute an official 
withdrawal." Approved with- 
drawals during the second 
through the sixth week are 
marked "W" and no other 
grade is indicated on the per- 
manent grade sheets. Approv- 
ed withdrawals after the sixth 
week are marked "W" or 
"WF" by the instructor de- 
pending on the status of the stu- 
dent at the time of the with- 
drawal. Unauthorized with- 
drawals mav be marked "F" 
regardless of when they are 

If the student is in doubt, the 
wise procedure, of course, is to 
ask questions. It is possibly 
trite, but nevertheless true. "An 
ounce of prevention is worth a 
pound of cure." 

so long that I can't remember 
where or when* — 

Mary Ann Mayer: "My first 
kiss was very romantic. It was 
a beautiful fall afternoon, and 

I was being escorted home by a 
gallant fifth grader while I was 
only in the fourth, What could 
be a more fitting climax than a 
quick kiss on the cheek?" 

New Instructors 
Join Faculty 

Two new instructors. Robert 
Towns and Don Edmondson. 
have been added to the faculty 
of the Fort Wayne Center of 
Indiana University. Mr. Towns 
is academic counselor and in- 
structor in English, and Mr. 
Edmondson is financial assist- 
ant to Dr. Broyles and instruct- 
or in accounting. 

A native of Warsaw, Indi- 
ana, Mr. Towns received his 
grade school and high school 
education there. After gradua- 
tion from high school, he attend 
ed Indiana University for two 
years. Like many other stU' 
dents, he spent these two years 
waiting to be drafted. When 
he was drafted into the Army 
he was placed in a military 
hool at Charleston. South 
Carolina, called The Citadel, a 
training school for engineers. 
After one year of schooling, the 
Army decided they needed in- 
fantry men more than engin- 
eers; therefore. Mr. Towns was 
shipped to France for three 
months. He was on the front 
for four weeks before receiving 
a wound, which forced him to 
spend the rest of his Army ca 
Teer in hospitals. 

Mr. Towns returned to Indi 
ana and finished the require- 
ments for a B.S. degree in edu- 
cation and an M.A. in English. 
He has also completed the hours 
necessary for a Ph.D. degree in 
English literature. While at 
Indiana University. Mr. Tc % "n 
was a graduate assistant, going 
to school part time and teach- 
ing part time in the English de- 

Although he has spent the 
majority of his time studying 
Mr. Towns has many hobbies 
Typical of most northern Indi- 
ana people, he enjoys fishing. 
Another of his interests is pho- 
tography. "Doing nothing bic 
is it," he says, "just taking pic- 
tures and developing them." 

Immediately after leaving the 
Army he was married and now 
has a daughter, Judy, five year.- 

Franklin. Indiana, is the home 
town of the Center's other new 
instructor, Don Edmondson 
and it was from Franklin High 
School that he was graduated 
Since his father was in the 
Army, he attended many 
schools previous to his gradua- 
tion, spending only his senior 
year at Franklin. 

Mr. Edmondson also spent 
his college years in Franklin at 
p ranklin College. During his 
four years there, he played a 
little football, ran on the cross- 
country track team, was a mem- 
ber of the debating team, and 
was in campus politics. In his 
college life, he had many hum- 
orous incidents; ask him about 
them sometime, students. 

When he completed studv at 
Franklin, he attended three 
semesters at Indiana University 
to attain his M.A. deqree in 
accounting. During this time 

*'rs a qradiiate assistant in 

the Business Deoartment. and 
as such, oart of his duties con- 
sisted of gradinq papers and 
conductinq classes. 

Mr. Fdmondson is not mar- 
ried and has not served in the 
armed forces, yet . . .

Indiana and Purdue had been 
meeting on the football field for 
a long time — since 1891, to be 
exact— when the Indiana and 
Purdue Alumni Clubs of Chi- 
cago held a joint meeting "to 
discuss the possibility of under- 
taking worthy joint enterprises 
n behalf cf the two schools." 
The meeting was suggested by 
the late Wiley J. Huddle of In- 

The first meeting was held at 
the University Club of Chica- 
go. August 31, 1925. After dis- 
cussion of various projects. Dr. 
Clarence Jones proposed the 
creation of a traditional foot- 
ball trophy to go to the winner 
of the annual Indiana-Purdue 
game. The proposal drew en- 
thusiastic approval. Dr. Jones 
and Russell Gray of Purdue 
were appointed to recommend a 
suitable trophy. 

At a later meeting they re- 
commended "An old oaken 
bucket as the most typically 
Hoosier form of trophy for the 
traditional Purdue-Indiana 
football game. 

"That the old oaken bucket 
should be taken from some well 
in Indiana. That a chain should 
be provided for the bucket to be 
made of bronze block "I" and, 
P" letters, representing Indi- 
ana and Purdue. The school 
winning the traditional football 
game each year should have po- 
session of the "Old Oaken 
Bucket" until the next game 
and should attach the block let- 
ter representing the winning 
school to the bucket bail -with 
the score engraved on the latter 
link. As the years go by there 
shall be a chain of "P" and "V 
links attached to the bucket." 

Fritz Ernst, of Purdue, and 
Huddle, of Indiana, were given 
the task of finding the bucket. 

They found it on the old Bru- 
ner Farm between Kent ancfl 
Hanover in southern Indiana .- 
The region, known as Green- 
brier, had been settled by the : 
Bruner family in the 1840's. 
making the bucket now welf 
over a century old. Rumor had' 
it that Morgan's Raiders had 
camped nearby in the Civil 
War and that General Morgan 
took particular delight in 
quenching his thirst from the 

Some excellent repair work 
put the bucket — covered with 
moss and old with some staves 
showing signs of decay — into 
good shape. 

At half-time of the 1925 Indi- 
ana-Purdue game. George Ade. 
the famed writer, and humorist 
frcrn Purdue, and Harry R. 
Kurrie, President of the Monon 
Railroad, of Indiana, carried 
the bucket between them to the 
center of the field and jointly 
presented it to President Bryan 
of Indiana University and Pre- 
sident Elliott of Purdue Uni- 

That first game ended in a 
hard-fought 0-0 tie and a joint 
"IP" link was the first to go on 
the chain. "Doesn't it seem 
almost providential," wrote Bill 
Fox, sports editor of the Indi- 
anapolis News, "that the first 
battle fought for the bucket 
would have come up a dead 
heat? So the chain finds Pur- 
due and Indiana beginning arm 
in arm. so to speak, in their 
struggles for supremacy. It is 
as if the hand of Purdue and 
the hand of Indiana are shaking 
over the bucket in a grasp of 
friendly rivalry."

"What's Your 


A variety of answers were 
received from Center students 
and faculty in answer to the 
questions. "What are your five 
favorite songs?" and "Why are 
these your favorites?" Some 
people chose as their favorites 
current songs; whereas others 
chose old standbys. Here are 
a few of the lists of songs and 
reasons that were given:

well-traveled personality. Dave 
has one favorite record — "In a 
Sentimental Mood," by Benny 
Goodman. (He is also sure no 
one else has ever heard of it.) 
Dave was born in Milwaukee, 
Wisconsin — "the city of beer 
and pretzels" and was "weaned 
on Schlitz!" He attended Mil- 
waukee State Teachers College, 
where he studied art with the 
intention of fulfilling his life's 
ambition — to be a Wisconsin 
Rembrandt — but he decided 
he'd starve in some lonely gar- 
ret before anyone recognized 
his achievements. He worked 
his way through college by 
beating the drums for a dance 
' nd called the All-Shot Six 
This didn't pan out; all six were 
nearly shot by the proprietor 
of the little Italian restaurant 
"/here they were booked. The 
other time that Dave put his 
foot in it (literally) was while 
he was playing the drums in his 
high school band and put his 
foot through his bass drum. 
Dave likes any kind of music 
that is well done. His all-time 
favorite band was the late 
Glenn Miller's, and he feels that 
no one has quite measured up 
to his fine music since. He feels 
however that the best prospect 
i? Billy May. However. May 
>'s just getting started. Right 
now his choice of the best all- 
-round band is Ray Anthony's. 
His favorite vocalists are Vera

and easy to relax to." 

Bill Marks: 

"Perhaps my favorite tune at 
the present time is Hey, Good

has a good style and is original. 
I also like On the Road to Man

John Koomjohn is the last 
Congress member to be inter- 
iewed but not the least import- 
ant since he is the president of 
the group. He is a sophomore 
nd a graduate of South Side 
High School. His ambition is 
to become an instructor at In- 
diana University. His main 
interest is N. S. His favorite 
subject is physics, but there is 
no subject that he dislikes.

Men Students 
Given Deferments 
for Current Year 

The square dance that was 
held October 19 brought about 
some humorous incidents. For 
instance, it seems we have some 
regular, little boy scouts in the 
teaching field; it took Mr. Wise 
and Mr. Towns a half hour, a 
gallon of kerosene, and a box 
of matches to start the fires for 
the wiener-roast! 

Pat Bushong caused quite a 
commotion when she discovered 
a mouse in a barrel. Sht 
promptly let the little, defense 
less thing loose, which, of 
course, caused wild screams 
nd a mad dash for the picnic 
tables !

In one of Mr. Gordon's Lit- 
asses one evening, Bob Han- 
auer was showing off his new 
shoes. Some of his friends 
made a further investigation of 
the matter by requesting him to 
take one of them off so that 
they could get a better look. As 
you can guess, his shoe was 
passed around the class and ad- 
mired by all. 

Recently a little bird told us 
that a certain Bob Lane h. 
acquired the famous name of 
"Lumpy." It seems he is quite 
conscious of the fact and almost 
blushed at the mention of it, 
Please tell us all about it, Bob. 
We're interested, too.

Sophocles, as we all know, 
was a great man and author. 
But I'm sure he never would 
appreciate how horribly we 
mis-pronounced some of his 
characters. In reading Oedipus 
the King, Mr. Voors pronounc- 
ed it "Odd-puss." Anything 
for a laugh these days, I sup-

Speaking of laughs, a couple 
of weeks ago Mr. Wise and 
Mr. Koepsell journeyed to Col- 
umbus. Ohio to see the Indiana- 
Ohio State football game. So 
the story goes, they took the 
wrong road, consequently not 
arriving at Columbus until the 
end of the first haif. No doubt 
ihey got mixed up on their time, 
too. since Ohio is on Eastern 
Standard Time. Oh well, bet- 
ter luck next time ! 

defense effort of our 
nation will soon cause 
young men to become 

many _, 

part of one of the American 
military establishments. These 
young men will not relish the 
idea of leaving their homes, 
their sweethearts, and their 
jobs or schools in order to take 
up the rifle; but they should 
realize that it is their duty to 
join hands with those men al- 
ready in uniform and to help 
them raise the colors of world 
peace over any modern Mount 
Suribachi which may threaten 
world security. 

These future draftees will be 
drawn from all walks of life: 
they will be laborers, white-col- 
lar workers, factory hands, and 
professional men. Of course, 
the student is also faced with 
the prospect of being drafted; 
and since most of us are either 
students or the sweethearts of 
students, we want to know how 
the draft concerns him. We 
want to know whether or not 
the college student will be al- 
lowed to finish his education 
before he is drafted. 

Your reporter went to the 
local draft board the other day 
to ask a few questions. It seems 
that as soon as a young man 
reaches the age of nineteen, he 
is to notify his school officials 
and have them send copies of 
SSS Form No. 109 to his draft 
board. This form notifies the 
board that the student is apply- 
ing for a deferment. The stu- 
dent then must take one of the 
deferment tests which will be 
offered in the near future {one 
on December 13, 195), and an- 
other on April 24, 1952.) . . 
After the student has taken 
his deferment test, his fate is in 
the hands of his draft board. 
Many people have the mistaken 
idea that once he has passed 
this test he is safe from the 
draft. However, this test only 
provides for consideration by 
his board of the student's right 
for deferment. Most students 
faced by the draft will be allow- 
ed to finish any current year of 
school in which they have en-' 
rolled and in which they are 
satisfactorily pursuing a full- 
time course of instruction. How- 
ever, little hope is offered for 
deferments which would allow 
one to obtain his degree if more 
than one year's work is needed.
