THIS LAST DAY
My heart is numbed.
My brain is in a trance.
For once I do not look forward.
I look back to yesterdays; one last chance
Is mine, this last day
To make it burn within my soul
Never to forget.
It is a pensive sadness that enshrouds me.
Slowly, quietly, memories float
Thru the years, and fleetingly blur
In one moment.
Friends I leave behind — cherished friends —
Who have made my life a daily joy and
Smiles I shall no longer see, of those
Departed on the way. Gone forever.
Yet lingering in the heart thru all eternity.
Cool, calm nights in spiced rose gardens
Will loom before me always.
Nights crisp with fallen snow, are only
First acquaintances, first loves
Overfill these years.
And they are the best.
The best years of my life — I realize now —
— Marion Kleinschmidt.

My joy in grief, my second bliss in joy;

Our burning words, that utter'd all the soul,
Our faces beaming with unearthly love; —

Exulting, heart embracing, heart entire.

Their prize accomplishment of the
year was their early morning party
which occurred at the un-earthly hour
of four o'clock in the morning. The old
bell certainly had a workout.
The culprits were overjoyed at their
success, but many of them looked with
disdain upon the hair-dos which were
presented to them for such outstand-

Sigma Tau Delta is in its sixth year on Mc-
Kendree's Campus. The meetings are helpful,
for through them we learn to read and evaluate
current literary productions.
During the first semester, four members were
pledged to our fraternity. They are Mary Eliza-
beth Presley, Flossine Rule, Barbara Boggess, and
Early in the second semester, the members of
our society attended the production of Noel
Coward's play, "Blithe Spirit," at the American
Theater in St. Louis. A poem by Mary Ruth
Shelton, "Evensong," appeared in our national
magazine, "The Rectangle," for Winter, 1941.
The fraternity met this spring at the home
cf Dr. West for an out-of-door picnic supper.

It is the purpose of our fraternity to uphold
a worthy standard of religion, service and
brotherhood in the lives of our student ministers.
Devotional programs were presented on each
Monday afternoon. Our Witnessing Band,
which is a continuation of the Gospel Teams,
appeared in many southern Illinois churches. A
trip to St. Louis to visit important churches and
social service organizations was helpful in broad-
ening our outlook.
The members enjoyed a banquet as a fitting

An outstanding trend in the last two years
has been toward making more helpful programs
a rule in our society. Each program has a cen-
tral theme, which, when followed, unifies and
integrates our thoughts. The constitution has
been studied and Robert's Rules of Order finds
a place on each program during parliamentary
Miss Conrow graciously accepted the role of
sponsor to our group. Eight members were
pledged during the course of the year. Four
open sessions were held which proved our con-
tention that Clio is one of the most useful or-
ganizations on our Hill.

The society which boasts of being one of the
oldest literary societies on the campus and in
the United States is in its one hundred and fifth
year. Twelve new members were added to the
roll, bringing the total to twenty-one active
members. Two pledge banquets were held at
the Lebanon Hotel, a wiener roast was given on
March 13, and the Philo-Plato basketball ban-
quet was held December 4.
During the current year, Philo created the
new office of athletic chairman, placing empha-
sis on the building of strong bodies as well as
good minds. At the end of the year, the society
placed on the hardwood, a team almost equal
in brilliance to the varsity which composed
Plato's team. On Founders' Day, Philo was
nosed out by a small five point lead.

That "There'll always be a Plato" was never
more evident than when Plato met Philo, to test
by brawn and ready wit the respective merits
of the two societies in a basketball game on
Founders' Day. The Platonians point with pride
to a score 35-29 in their favor.
This year Plato began the year with seven
members and pledged thirteen. This is a one
hundred per cent increase in membership over
last year. Any organization could be proud of
such progress — and we are.
On April 2 an American Flag was presented
to the college in an impressive service during

As is our custom, we tried to make every new
girl feel that she was a part of our school be-
fore she came by providing each girl with a
"big sister" from our organization which in-
cludes all the girls on the campus. The "Y"
Mixer, which we give in connection with our
brother organization, is another traditional part
of our year's program.
The Y. W. C. A. provides a spiritual expres-
sion found in no other organization. One of our
outstanding programs was a European travel
lecture by Dr. Pritchard.
The Y. W. held a "taffy pull" for the entire
school in Pearson's Hall. Heart Sister Week was
observed again this year in traditional manner.

Religious and social fellowship among the
men on our campus has been successfully pro-
moted by the Young Men's Christian Associa-
tion. The religious emphasis is mode every
Wednesday evening in our devotional pro-
grams. Open forums are sometimes held. Among
the most interesting meetings were Professor R.
B. Hohn's talk on "Mental Hygiene," Miss
Marion Conrow's speech about "A Trip to Ko-
rea," and Dr. J. C. Dolley's resume of "A
Grecian Trip I Made."
The social side of our program was rounded
out by a "Y" Mixer, which was held September

The council to foster better government on
the Hill is in its third year of service. Students
elected from the residence halls, the student
body and those living in town meet with some
selected faculty members to discuss problems
and possible improvements in government. This
year the need for a McKendree sign at the
intersection of the main highways was discussed
and became a reality. New library hours were
experimented with as a result of council discus-
sion. Cooperation was pledged by this group
to the Activities Committee in its attempt to
revive and foster a more colorful May Fete.
Remarkable progress has been shown in an
organization which makes suggestions that do
not necessarily become laws.

The national emergency has curtailed the in-

intra-squad debates helped to make this as
profitable a season as we have ever enjoyed.
A group from the squad attended the fourth
annual Principia College Public Affairs Confer-
ence at Elsah, Illinois.
The national subject for debate was "Re-
solved that Great Britain and the United States
should form a federation based upon the eight
principles of the Churchill-Roosevelt Pact."

With their customary cheerfulness and self
sacrifice the annual staff labored up to the
dead line in order to produce the best book
possible. Charles Chadwell and his assistants
spared no effort to produce an annual which
they hoped would be better than any before.
This is always the aim of a truly competent staff
and this group has been no exception.
If they have, in a small measure, attained
the standard set for themselves, their effort has
not been in vain.

This season the chorus can boast that they
have appeared before more people than in
year's past. These appearances have been
made in many of Southern Illinois churches and
over radio stations in Harrisburg, Herrin, and
St. Louis. In the latter instance, they sang over
both KMOX and KSD. Founders' Day and the
District Conference held at Bethalto were made
more worthwhile by the songs of this group.
A party welcoming the new members was
held during the first semester. A more formal
and elaborate social event climaxed the year's

in the men's quartet. Ethel Dewhirst has substituted on every occasion when she was
needed either as a first or second soprano.
The sextet has sung at the Scott Field Chapel services, at Centralia Youth Fel-
lowship, for the Men's Club at Granite City, at Central City, at Alma, and for
the New Baden Women's Club.
The quartet has appeared in a vesper service at Alton,
Mascoutah High School, at Scott Field, and in East St. Louis.

Too much cannot be said in praise for the
revival of one of the most useful and entertain-
ing organizations here at McKendree. The work
of the members and of the director, Wilbert
Cannon, has been untiring.
What has this organization accomplished? It
has lent spirited atmosphere to the intercollegi-
ate games and contests. It has provided inter-
esting programs and selections for programs.
Notable was the Founders' Day concert. Not
only has the band entertained others; it has
given, also, a wholesome outlet for the latent
musical ability which so many McKendreans
At the annual McKendree Band Clinic, held
on the campus this spring, a group of three
hundred picked musicians from Southern Illinois
high schools was coached; and in the evening
of the same day, a mass band was formed
under the direction of Mr. Barton, of the Leb-
anon High School, and Mr. Cannon.
A baby symphony orchestra of twenty-five
pieces was organized on our campus this year.
This group was also under the leadership of Mr.
W. A. A.
Jane Hackmann, Hirrel Dauderman, Edith Pritchard, Ruth Hauser, Frances Robinso
Gann, Mary E. Presley, Miss Thomas, Kathleen Weidler, Ruth Cooper, Jeanne Beatty,

ANNA LOIS GANN
The outstanding events sponsored by the
Women's Athletic Association this year were
the basketball and ping pong tournaments. The
basketball tournament was won by the team
which Lois Kinison coached. Anna Lois Gann
was the champion of the ping pong tournament.
The mid-semester social event — a skating
party — W a S held at the Crystal Roller Rink in
Pledged to the society were eight members.
STANDING: Orvol Wiley, Robert Herman, Miss Cora Marie Thomas, Harold Nothdurft,
Ralph Edwards, Wilbert Cannon.
SEATED: Frances Robinson, Mary Ellen Glotfelty, Carol Heer, Virginia Canklin, Frank Glotfelty,
Betty Stelzriede, Mary Elizabeth Presley.
The Drama Society was reorganized this year
under a new plan. All those at the first meet-
ing became charter members while those who
entered later in the year passed through a six
Interesting programs were given each month
and the first open session in the history of the
group was held during the second semester.
A theater party to the American Theater at
St. Louis to see "Macbeth" was one of the out-
standing events of the year.
As usual the Little Theater helped the Play
Production Class produce their one-act plays.

athlete who stands for pure sportsmanship and
all other qualities that the word implies. Fif-

Under the generalship of Coach Lewis Scholl and Captain "Buddy" Edwards,
this "big" little team wound up the season with two wins, a tie, and four setbacks;
but this record, discouraging as it may be, doesn't tell the story.
The spirit with which the team played, when each member knew that there was
very little chance of a substitution being made for him, was tremendous. Sixteen
men was the greatest number of players used in any one game, and the fight put
up by those few was and will be hard to beat.
More men and fewer injuries would have told a different story about the 1941
edition of the McKendree Bearcats.
Miss Bonnie Bell, a sophomore, won the
coveted honor of presiding as Queen over
the Homecoming football contest. She was
a Maid of Honor during her first year.
A diversity of interests claims the attention
of her Majesty: Bonnie is an active member
of the Clionian Literary Society and took
part in the Homecoming play "Your Uncle
Dudley" and the May Day play. Our Queen
has actively participated in the Women's
Athletic Association and has been a mem-
ber of the basketball team.
It is needless to tell those on our campus
of her pieasant smile and lovable disposition;
but for you who do not know, Bonnie is one
of the most admired women on our Hill.

Our college 'mid plains is standing,
Standing there from olden days —
A pioneer of learning,
First in untrodden ways.
For service and Christian culture,
For efficiency she stands.
Her sons and daughters praise her
With voices, hearts, and hands.
Hail to thee, our dear old McKendree!
May we always loyal be.
It's a song of praise we raise to thee,
Alma Mater, dear old M C.
May we ever hold thee true and wise and right.

And for victory we'll always fight

CAPTAIN GEORGE EDWARDS, Senior
East St. Louis, Quarterback, four-year let-
The Purple's retiring captain, the ever-popular "Buddy,"
closed a gridiron career which will long be remembered
by McKendree's football friends. Edwards threw
passes, caught passes, punted, place-kicked, called sig-
nals and carried the ball — and performed all functions
with plenty of scrap for his team and his school.
"Buddy" was picked as a halfback on the Ivy League
all-star team, and really deserved the honoring of his
outstanding offensive and defensive play, and smart
CAPTAIN-ELECT EARL BRAEUTIGAM, Junior
Mascoutah, Fullback, three-year letterman.
"Meathead," who has been accepted by the U. S. Naval
Air Corps, will not be around to hit the line for Mc-
Kendree next year, and those teams listed on the
Purple's schedule will be glad of it. Earl was a
bruiser, and moved fast enough that it hurt to get
in front of him. Twenty-four of McKendree's thirty-
eight points were scored by this 212-pound smasher,
all on line plunges. His never-give-up spirit, his drive,
and defensive ability will be missed by the 1942 team.
CO-CAPTAIN ELECT PAUL GRIFFIN, Junior
East St. Louis, Halfback, two-year letter-
Tall, rangy, powerful, and fast, Griffin was a mighty
good ball-carrier, and very ably took over the duties
after an injured wrist healed. His best game was un-
doubtedly the mud-fest at LaSalle-Peru, in which he
handled almost all the running assignments, due to
the fact that Braeutigam was injured. Griffin toted
the ball to the one-yard line, to set up Braeutigam's
touchdown. He again carried to the yard-stripe, only
to have the slippery oval squirt from his arms just as
he was about to score in the closing minutes of the
game. "Wang" will be back with the Purple next
CO-CAPTAIN ELECT RICHARD SNYDER,
East St. Louis, End, one-year letterman.
A big, tough, hard-hitting, pass-catching end is some-
thing a coach desires very much, and Mentor Lewis
Scholl wo- blessed with Dick Snyder to fill the bill.
Dick was a good man, and will be a big factor in the
building of the 1942 eleven. His aggressiveness and
fight meant a lot to the small squad.
DONALD HARTMAN, Junior
O'Fallon, End, three-year letterman.
Big Don opened the holes on offense, closed them
on defense, and plugged all the time against fresh
tackles, although he could hardly drag himself into
position. "Duck" will be back for his fourth season
next year, and his ability will again be in demand.
ROYCE TIMMONS, Junior
Granite City, Halfback, two-year letter-
"Meece" was stubby and fast, and was a nice, little
pass-tosser, and will be sorely missed next year. He
is flying in Uncle Sam's Air Corps, and if he "puts out"
as much up there as he did here, Coach Sam will be
ROSS HORTIN, Junior
Albion, Center, two-year letterman.
Ross was regular center this year, after having under-
studied Ray Fary for two seasons. And believe it, he
really went to town in the pivot spot. He's a mighty
good man to have around, and he will be around
ARTHUR HINSON, Sophomore
Madison, Guard, one-year letterman.
Here's the hard-charging, football-playing boy from
Modison, who was laid up as a freshman with a bum
knee and couldn't show his stuff then. But when he took
off the wraps this season, he proved that underneath
them there was 185 pounds of gridiron stuff which
could last any sixty-minute game. Arty will be back
for two years more.
GEORGE KENNEDY, Sophomore
Mound City, Tackle, one-year letterman.
George was a hard-blocking tackle and a rugged man
on defense. He asked no quarter, and gave none,
always scrapping his way into the enemy backfield. He
>t his share of the tackles, and sometimes
HERBERT SCHROEDER, Sophomore
Mascoutah, Tackle, two-year letterman.
Schroeder came here two years ago with no gridiron
experience, but he improved much, and was one of
the men who rated a nod in the Purple forward wall.
He was hard to get out of the way when enemy inter-
ference moved in his direction, and he was among
the first through the line to break up plays.
WYATT RAWLINGS, Freshman
East St. Louis, Guard, one-year letterman.
Rowlings was a rough-looking boy in a football suit,
and he was mighty rough, too. He came to school
with a rep of being a good player, and lived up to
it, fighting all the time. Rowlings was strictly a team
man, and fought to win. He took a lot of beatings,
as did everyone, and strained up to the final gun.
WALTER PIMLOTT, Sophomore
Carmi, Tackle, two-year letterman.
When it came to playing against odds, "Red" didn't
mind, but he'd just dig in and put out that much
more. Tall and well-built, weighing 180, this titan-
haired sophomore was just too good for most of the
guys he ran against.
FRANK HARRIS, Freshman
East St. Louis, Tackle, one-year letterman.
After Frank got a chance to show his stuff, he proved
that he was a much better player than he was given
credit for being. His size made him mighty handy to
have around. Big things are expected of Frank on
HAROLD BARROW, Freshman
Belleville, End, one-year letterman.
Here's a little man, weighing only 140, who stuck
thiough thick and thin, and was always ready when
he was called. He's in the U. S. Army now, and his
determination will help him to go places there.
Herbert Schroeder, Malcolm h
Smith, Antone Tepatti, Co
res, Co-captain Andy Patterson, James Gr
jptain Lev/Is Winterrowd, Boyd Anderson.
The Bearcat cagers opened the season with a victory over Jefferson College,
but added to that a string of nine straight defeats, to finish half the season 'way
on the short end of the "won and lost" score.
But under the smart tutelage of Coach Lewis Scholl and the leadership of
their co-captains, Lewis Winterrowd and Andy Patterson, the McKendreans poured
it on down the back stretch and all the way home, as they emerged victors in seven
of their last ten games.
In this "win" streak, the Schollmen added another conquest over Jefferson, and
avenged setbacks by Centralia, Harris, Conccrdia, and Blackburn, and picked up a
pair of wins over Parks Air College.
Two of the losses were to St. Louis and Washington Universities, and two more
to Austin Peay College, of Clarksville, Tennessee, and Lambeth College, at Jack
CO-CAPTAIN LEWIS WINTERROWD
Bible Grove, Forward, two-year-let-
As a captain should, Louie set an excellent
example for the rest of the squad to -follow.
He played hard, never giving up, ond he
played to win. He kept himself in good
physical trim, and he was always striving to
better himself os a basketball player. He
was one of the high scorers on the Purple,
his best game being against Concordia when
he laid in eighteen points.
CO-CAPTAIN ANDY PATTERSON,
West Frankfort, Forward, one-year
Andy was short, but he was fast and had a
dead eye; and consequently he was one of the
kingpins of the Bearcat quintet. Patterson
led the entire squad in scoring, and he could
always be counted on to net a goodly num-
ber of points. His scrappiness enabled him
to break up enemy plays, and one of his
favorite tricks was to steal the ball from
an opponent and dribble unmolested down
the floor for an easy setup shot.
BOYD ANDERSON, Sophomore
Albion, Guard, one-year letterman.
"Tex" had height and knew how to use it;
consequently he was the best rebounder, both
on offense and defense. He counted a
number of points that way, and added a
few more with his under-handed long shot.
One of his greatest assets was his pep, and
he was always sharing it with the rest of the
team. He was also one of the best foul-shot
artists on the squad.
ANTONE TEPATTI, Junior
Pocahontas, Guard, one-year let-
This dark, little, smiling boy was the hardesr-
fighting guy on the squad; and although he
had more than his share of the fouls, he
was putting out all the time. "Tony's" best
game was the Shurtleff fracas, in which he
was outstand ng defensively and offensively,
sinking five long shots from the center of
GORDON HUFF, Junior
Owensville, Forward, one-year letter-
"Tuffy" is with Uncle Sam now, serving as a
second lieutenant in the Army. He was in
school long enough to finish the basketbcll
season, and it was good that he was. His
ability to fill in for anybody on the floor
made him very valuable.
JAMES GROVE, Freshman
Batchtown, Forward, one-year let-
Jim could always be counted on to hold up
his end of the load when he was in the
game. This good-looking, dark-haired fresh-
man played heads-up ball all the time, and
will be expected to show more, as he has
three years of school to go.

MALCOLM MYRES, Junior
Belleville, Center, one-year letter-
Entering school at the beginning of the sec-
ond semester, as a transfer student from
Blackburn, Mai helped pull the Purple out
of a slump. His height ond scoring ability
made him one of the standouts. One sports
writer coined the term, A.M., indicating the
season "after Myres," to show the improve-
ment the addition of Myres made in the
EARNEST SMITH, Sophomore
Woodriver, Forward, two-year let-
Ernie was a good man to have around, and
when he was in there he was very steady.
Ernie started out two years ago as an in-
experienced freshman, but he has gradually
developed into a dandy little ball-player.
He is young, and will be a valuable man to
the team for the next two years.

The girls' basketball team played a heavier schedule this year than last year.
This organization of athletically-minded girls played a total of nine games, a cir-
cumstance which gave them more chance to perfect their game.
Two games were played with Blackburn, Harris Teachers' College and Shurtleff
each. Three games were scheduled with an independent team from town. Three of
the nine games were won, and there was a prevailing good sportsmanship in spite of
the fact that the losses were close.
Marion Kleinschmidt is finishing four years as a Kittycub guard. Ruth Hauser
was the high-scoring member of the team for this season, though she played part
of one game with a sprained ankle.

There are nine returning lettermen on the track and field squad this year, and a
number of promising freshmen, which all adds up to what should be a fair season.
The Purple thinclads have two dual meets with both Shurtleff and Harris, and
will entertain Shurtleff, Principia, Harris and Eureka, at a five-sided event on Hypes
Field. There is also a possibility of a pair of meets with Concordia Seminary.
The returning lettermen are Carrol Lowe, poie vault; Paul Griffin, weights
and dashes; Boyd Anderson, hurdles, javelin, and pole vault; Don Hartman, shot
and discus; Dick Snyder, dashes; Bob Dannenbrink, middle distances; Cliff Keck,
distances; George Edwards, weights and half-mile; and Leland Grieve, hurdles and

"Your Uncle Dudley," by Howard Lindsey and Bertrand Robinson, proved to
be much more entertaining than it sounded from hearing "Good-bye forever, good-
bye forever" shouted double forte about ten-thirty every evening. In spite of slap-
stick in the part of young Cyril Church, melodrama in the parts of Robert and
Ethelyn, and realism in the part of Mrs. Church, the play keeps its balance by means
of the title-character, Uncle Dudley, whose desire to make everyone happy keeps
him with his back to the proverbial wall throughout the three acts.

Thornton Wilder's "Our Town," sans props, sans physical perspective in gen-
eral, was a definite swing towards the ultra-modern in drama. The philosophizing,
pipe-smoking stage manager is, without a doubt, the pivot about which the homely,
day-by-day events in the lives of ordinary people turn; and the dead perched up-
right on chairs in the closing scene make a profound impression of serene contem-
plation of the eternal.

CHEERS FOR MISS DONALDSON
It is about ten o'clock the morning of Freshman registration. The hall of Old
Main is churning with people we've never seen before. The door to the south
office is shut; but through the door of the business office, we can see Miss Donald-
son doing nothing. A freshman enters from the hall, but he goes unnoticed
because of his minute size. He stands awhile and finally says in a voice full of
anything but proper freshman meekness,
"I wanna pay you some money!"
Miss Donaldson jumps out of her chair and grabs her receipt book on the
run. Looking down over the desk, she sees a small gentleman whom we shall later
know as "Oklahoma's gift to the women," or none other than William Carson,
Esquire. He says,
"Am I supposed to pay you some money?"
"I don't know. Are you?"
"You don't know? Look here, you're Miss Donaldson; you admit that, don't
"Well, them guys where I live said I'se supposed to pay my money to you."
"Um-hum. Let me see your cards."
"Cards? What kinda cards? I haven't got any cards."
"Well, you can't pay me anything until you register and see Mr. Brown."
"Mr. Brown? Whatta I have to see him for? What's registerin' got to do
with payin' you, anyhow?"
"You go across the hall and get a long white card like everyone else's got.
Then find a teacher to help you decide what to take. When you get an approval
of your schedule, go to the south office door and see Mr. Brown. Then you can
bring me all your cards and your money and we'll see what I can do."
"How long 'N that take?"
"Depends on how much trouble you have deciding what to take and how
many people are ahead of you in getting to see Mr. Brown. By now, I'd say there
ought to be fifteen people ahead of you."
"Fifteen people! Looka here! I ain't got time to hang around here all
mornin' waitin' to see a guy when all I need to do is pay you. I'm not gonna
By this time, a line of freshmen has formed at the end of the desk.
"You'd better run along and begin registering. That line's going to be longer
than ever if you don't hurry. — Kay, come here and take these people's cards."
Miss Donaldson is busily sorting registration cards. Dr. Wallace is in Prof.
Hohn's office checking a senior schedule; at the typewriter near the vault we see
Ralph Edwards typing book orders. Jorden Debban saunters in and asks for a
time sheet. Miss Donaldson says,
"Haven't got any time sheets run off yet. Besides, you can't start working
till Mr. Brown tells you to."
"Well, now, he told me to start puttin' in time this afternoon. Several things
needin' to be done, Miss Donaldson. Forced to work today."
"I imagine that's the only way you'll ever work, too — is when somebody forces
"Now, look, Miss Donaldson, I'll be forced to ask you to go to the show with
me if you don't be more amiable. Forced to take you out tonight."
"What's this? Don't tell me you're not going to the 'Y' Mixer tonight? Just
think of all the little freshman girls you'll be depriving of a lovely time!"
"Well, now that you put it that way — forced to change my plans, Miss Donald-
son; forced to go to the party instead."
"How about goin' to the show next Wednesday, Miss Donaldson?"
" 'Fraid not. The President's reception is going to be next Wednesday.
Where's your school spirit, Mr. Debban?"
Ralph jumps up and knocks his chair over backwards as he becomes enthusiastic:
"Hey, 'Liza, I just got an idea! Why doesn't the bookstore sell green caps
"I don't know! Why?"
"Now, look, Miss Donaldson, the bookstore might as well make that money."
"I don't care who sells caps. I'm not going to buy any. Why don't you go
see Clifford if you want to sell caps? He probably knows some place you could
buy them three for a dime. Might be a good idea if you inquired about a good
second-hand furniture store, too."
Dr. Wallace comes out of the vault just in time to see a trail of flying papers
left by the departing whirlwind, and Eliza observes:
"Ooooh, that crazy boy! If he didn't go so fast, I'd make him come back and
pick them every one up."
"Never mind; I'll get them."
"Never mind, nothing! I wouldn't pick up his old papers. He can pick 'em
up himself when he gets back."
"Look, 'Liza, I've been trying to find the hectograph roll for fifteen minutes.
Will you please tell me where it is?"
"I can't keep on track of that ditto roll. Go look on the ditto machine in
there. Someone used it this morning. If it's not there, I'm sure I don't know
where it is."
She sits down at the adding machine and starts to tabulate.
" 'Liza, will you type these instructions for me? I want them tomorrow for
my zoology class."
"This is a fine time to ask me to do your zoology instructions for you. I
haven't got time. Besides, you're making me make mistakes. Do 'em yourself."
"Well, why don't you furnish me a secretary? It takes me forever to peck out
these things myself."
"What do you think your wife'd say if I got you the kind of secretary you
want? Now, you quit bothering me or you'll have to have a secretary. — There! it's
four-thirty, and I've got to go to town before five o'clock. Don't go away with-
out throwing the lock."
• * * *
It is the day before Homecoming. 'Liza is typing the chapel program. Clifford
Cates comes in and picks up the time sheets.
"Who's signed out to work, 'Liza? I need someone to carry chairs from Clio
to the dining hall."
"Well, I don't know who's signed out, Clifford. I think George Pimlott and
Charles Haigh — and, oh, yes, Dick Snyder — "
"Yeah, I saw Snyder coming from town about half an hour ago. Didn't look
like he was raking many leaves to me. Here he's signed out till five o'clock, too.
I don't know what I'm going to do about fellows signing in before they're finished
working. . . . Say, 'Liza, will you call up Snyder and tell him I want him to come
over here? Tell him I want him to do something."
"Well, Clifford, I'm busy. Now, you call him yourself."
"I've gotta go get the key to Clio from Barbara Boggess. You call Snyder
and tell him to get — No, you'd better call Tepatti, too. Tell them both to come
over here and see me."
"Clifford, I'm not going to make your telephone calls for you. If you want
those boys, you sit right down and call 'em yourself!"
"I've gotta go get that key." Door slams.
"Clifford Oh, me!"
Tepatti comes in.
"Oh, he's gone over to the women's dormitory."
"He said he wanted to see me."
"Well, you'll have to wait till he comes back. He wants you to wash dishes
in Mr. Hinson's place tomorrow."
"Shoot, no, I'm not goin' to wash dishes tomorrow. Think I wantta spend all
afternoon in that dish-room? Man, that old dishwasher won't even get 'em clean
when we've got regular dishes 10 do. Them old dishes stacked clear to th' ceil-
ing — we never would get 'em clean."
"Well, you'l! hove to see Mr. Brown about that."
"Well, I don't aim to wash dishes tomorrow. No, sir! Ycu tell him I said so."
"You'd better tell him yourself." Door slams again. "I wish that man would
stay here and tend to his own business."
Flossine Rule enters; she is obviously not in a good humor:
"What's Clifford going to do with the key to Clio Hall?"
"Said he's going to have the chairs carried to the dining hall for tomorrow."
"He's got his nerve! Did he ask anyone if he could borrow Clio's chairs?"
"Oh, I don't know. He went to borrow the key from Barbara. I suppose he'll
"I'd like to know who he thinks he is! He uses the Hall all fall for chapel
and doesn't ask us and gets our rug muddy and never offers to have it cleaned up.
Now he's helping himself to our chairs. Some of these days he's going to make
me so mad! I'm going to tell him off. I sure won't be afraid to, either."
"Just wait till I see him! I'm going to give him a piece of my mind!" She
bangs the door after her.
"I wish that Clifford would stay here and take care of his own business!"
Cannon is talking to Clifford in the south office. 'Liza is working over her
account book. Kennedy has just come in brandishing an N. Y. A. check.
"Hello, Miss D. Is Mr. Broon around? Heh! heh! Did you notice how funny
that sounded? 'Mr Broon aroun'?"
"He's talking to Mr. Cannon."
"Are you in a good mood today, Miss D?"
"Well, I'm not; and if you don't hush, I'm going to be in an awfully bad
"Now, look Miss D., I was goin' to pay you some money. But if you don't
want it —
"How much're you going to pay me?"
"$12.95. That's all I got — Just think how you're breakin' me up!"
"Yea — I'm so sorry. Bet I'm breakin' your heart up, too!"
"You know it! Oh, say, Miss D., that makes me think: I've got somethin' for
the office gals — see — kisses!"
"Well, Isn't that just wonderful! How much did you say you're going to
While 'Liza is writing out the receipt, Cannon comes in from the south office
and asks for the key to Clio Hall. Miss Donaldson replies,
"I don't give out keys just because someone wants them. What are you going
to do with the key to Clio?"
"The band's going to Dlay at the game tonight, and we need the chairs."
"Well, I guess. But don't be surprised if Miss Rule pulls about half your
"Oh, I can handle Sugar-plum all right. Why, I'll just pin her ears back and
be done with her. She's a brat."
Miss Thomas enters:
"You about ready to go to town, 'Lizc?"
"Oh, I was until Mr. Kennedy paid me some money. Now, I've got to go over
a whole page here again."
P. Wesley Yost opens the door and inquires,
"Oh, he took Clifford's car and went down town, and Clifford's been trying
to find him all afternoon. I don't know where the man is."
"Well, Miss Donaldson, I need a haircut — need it badly."
"Look 'Liza, my spending money's all gone; could you loan me fifty cents so
I can get it done now? You don't know how much I'd appreciate it."
"I'm sure you would. Oh, all right; get it out of my drawer there."
"Oh, thank you, Miss Donaldson; good-bye."
"Good-bye; and don't forget you owe me fifty cents!"
'Liza Jane is typing at the typewriter by the vault. Clifford is working at his
desk. Miss Thomas appears in the door.
"Is Clifford here? I want to see him about getting Tex Anderson to work on
the stage for 'Our Town.' S'ppose he'd lei him turn in time for it? He's put in
his hours for play production already."
"Well, you can see him. I'm sure I don't know what he'll do."
Dr. Wallace enters with one arm full of carrots with tops showing and with one
arm full of coffee. He looks over 'Liza's shoulder and remarks,
"Hello. What's this?"
"Check for some money I owe you."
"2.86? What do you owe me $2.86 for?"
"Well, if I don't I'll be glad to take it back. You said I owed you $2.86."
"I remember, now, the $2.00; but what's the 86c for?"
"Oh, I don't know. Something you bought at Heers'. Say — are you the person
who's been buying dog food?"
"Yes, I bought some."
"Well, help us! We've been trying for two weeks to find out about that
dog food. I asked Clifford, and he didn't know; and Mrs. Hertenstein didn't know
anything about it, either. If you don't quit buying things without telling us about it,
we're going to shoot you."
From the south office: "Amen!"
"Why 'Liza, I told you."
"You certainly did not."
"I did, too!"
"Nooo, you didn't."
The door blows checks al
the office floor as it is slammed.

The South gave us our charming May
Queen this year in the person of Bonnye
Broadus, from Philadelphia, Mississippi.
Bonnye has shewn versatility characteristic
of a McKendree co-ed and May Queen. She
has sung in the chorus and in the sextet,
acted in an official capacity for the Y. W.
C. A., has been elected to membership in
Sigma Tau Delta, end has served as vice-
president of Clio. By making the honcr roll,
our May Queen has disproved the idea that
brains and beauty cannot exist in the same
place at the same time. Very graciously
Bonnye presided over the Spring Fete.
The May Fete, an event so long traditional on McKendree's campus, but somewhat on the
wane during the past few years, was observed with renewed emphasis this year, on May 14.
Following the Senior Class Day program, held in the chapel in the morning, and the Tree
Dedication and presentation of the Senior Class Gift to the college on the campus in the early
afternoon, the Queen and her cortege marched to the music of the college band to the royal dais
on the back campus at four o'clock, where the Queen, Bonnye Broadus, was crowned by her Moid
of Honor, Anna Lois Gann.
After the coronation, there was held, for the entertcinment of the Queen, her attendants, and
the assembled audience, folk games and the winding of the May pole by groups of college girls.
The one-act fantasy, "A Penny a Flower," by Katherine Kester was then presented by a mixed cast
of college students.
A dinner, honoring the Seniors, was held in Pearson's Hall at six o'clock, attended by faculty
and students, followed by a concert by the college band.
Thus terminated a day not soon to be forgotten, particularly by the Class of '42.
