THE 1944 MC KENDREAN 

McKendreans are proud of their Alma Mater 
and her rich heritage. For more than one hun- 
dred and sixteen years McKendree has stood 
for the highest and best in education and char- 
acter building, and, struggling as she is in this 
third year of the U. S.'s participation in World 
War I I to keep on the move, her stately old 
buildings remind us that McKendree is strong 
and durable — well able to stand even in the 
face of almost unbearable hardships. Her 
almost-a-century-old Chapel building, whose 
spire majestically rises from among the branches 
of age-old trees to find its apex towering above 
even the greatest of God's own handiwork, 
symbolizes McKendree's noble and lofty ideals. 
McKendree is proud to be a child of the great 
Methodist Church, which this year, through the 
leadership of its episcopal officers, is crusading 
for a just and lasting peace. It is our hope that 
everything about McKendree may fall in line 
with the ideals and teachings of "The Prince of 
Peace". McKendree, in her own humble way, 
is anxious to do her part to support the church 
in its endeavors to carry out a program which 
will help lead our country into lasting Christian 
fellowship with all peoples.

We are anxiously awaiting the cessation of 
hostilities and the coming of peace. McKendree 
is doing her part by giving — knowledge — service 
— inspiration — students.

. . .we dedicate the 1944 McKENDREAN. During his eight 
years as president of McKendree College, Dr. Clark R. Yost 
has given his all in the interest of the school. Especially since 
Pearl Harbor our president has literally poured out his spiritual, 
mental, and physical energies in steady streams so that the 
program at McKendree might continue to be the best to be 
found among schools of its standing. His contribution to 
McKendree cannot be expressed in words. Theodore Roosevelt 
gave McKendree the title, "The best in the Middle West." 
We who have known Dr. Yost during the last few years, as 
he has led McKendree and as he has constantly championed 
the cause of Christian education, are ready to give him the 
title, "The best leader of 'The best in the Middle West' ".

PHILO 

Philo began the year with four members, the war 
having almost decimated our numbers. One of these, 
Hal Nothdurft, was soon taken. We did not deem it 
advisable to meet during the first semester, although 
we did elect officers. However, we did not cease to 
function as an organization. 

At the beginning of the second semester things 
began looking up. We pledged eight new members, 
several of whom made their marks in basketball. 
I hough Phi lo members are busy with many other activi- 
ties, we find time to meet every Monday at 12:30 p.m. 

The Philo spirit moves on, even in wartime. Philo 
influence will continue to be felt on McKendree 
Campus. 



PLATO 

Plato began the year, its 95th, with only one mem- 
ber left from the group of 1942-43. For a time it 
looked as if the society had lost its place on the 
Campus when twelve of its fourteen members were 
graduated or entered the armed services, but last 
fall nine pledges came into Plato, and the organiza- 
tion carried on in its usual energetic way 

This year Plato kept its reputation for athletics by 
having four members on the basketball squad. The 
manager of the team was also a Platonian. 

Most of the society's members have one or two 
years more of college to complete. For this reason 
we feel sure that although the membership may be 
small, Plato will keep on boosting McKendree.

CLIO 

The only girls' literary society on this campus is 
Clio, which helps the girls develop a well-balanced 
personality and gives them experience in speaking 
before others. Literary programs which are chosen by 
the critics are given each Monday night. They consist 
of declamations, impromptus, essays, assigned ad- 
dresses, current events, parliamentary drill, and music. 
These programs are varied and interesting and are 
formed around a central theme. 

Eleven new members were pledged into the society 
this year. 

Four open sessions were given during the year and 
the prominent social event of Sadie Hawkins Day was 
sponsored by the girls of Clio. 

This organization receives the support and coopera- 
tion of all Clionians. They enjoy the meetings very 
much.

SIGMA BETA RHO 

With the growing complexity of life for the indi- 
vidual under present world wide conditions, there is 
a profound need for a balanced life. Sigma Beta Rho 
was instituted for this very purpose. 

Slowly but surely we are realizing that the Mastei's 
practice of quietly slipping aside for a worship period 
with the Father gives us poise with a deeper under- 
standing and a broader view of life's tasks. 



"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a work- 
man that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing 
the word of truth."— II Timothy: 2:15. 



"Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier 
of Jesus Christ."— II Timothy: 2:3.

SIGMA TAU DELTA 

This is the eighth year of the Alpha lota chapter 
of Sigma Tau Delta on the campus. This organization 
is a national honorary English fraternity for the pur- 
pose of learning to appreciate literature and of creat- 
ing the desire to write. The meetings are held at the 
home of Dr. West and consist of creative writing and 
reviews on current books of popular interest. 

Three new members were received into the society 
this year. 



SIGMA ZETA 

The Sigma Zeta honorary society is a national or- 
ganization whose purpose is to encourage scientific 
study and to recognize students of high scholarship in 
natural sciences and mathematics. The Beta Chapter 
at McKendree College was organized in 1926. 

During this school year Prof. H. C. Gutekunst, head 
of the department of chemistry, and Mr. Thomas T. 
Gordon, a senior majoring in Mathematics, have been 
initiated. These, with Dean Stowell, have constituted 
the active chapter this year. 

Although with depleted ranks, the society plans to 
carry on and to be prepared for useful work both 
now and when the peace comes.

YMCA CABINET 




YMCA 

The YMCA, in spite of having a limited member- 
ship, -functioned as usual this year. Four delegates 
were sent to the YM-YWCA Conference held at 
Shurtleff College in November. 

During the year, the YMCA met on Wednesday 
evenings. Many of the programs consisted of com- 
bined sessions with the YWCA. Student ministers were 
the speakers at most of the joint meetings. Harold 
Kuebler, assistant regional secretary of the YMCA, 
spoke at one of the combined sessions in February. 

The Y's officers for the year: president, Don Har- 
mon (I), Gehl Devore (2); vice-president, Gehl De- 
vore (I), William Stallings (2); program chairman, 
Larry Jones; social chairman, William Searles; chap- 
lain, Mode Powell; secretary-treasurer, Peter Notaras; 
pianist, Robert Stadge. 



YWCA 

This year the association continued to fulfill its re- 
quirements to become a participating "Y" in the 
national organization. Several of the officers attended 
a conference in November at Shurtleff College, Alton. 
They sent a representative to the Lake Geneva Con- 
ference in June. 

The Y.W. held some of its weekly meetings with 
the Y.M. in Clio Hall, with the student ministers pro- 
viding the programs. The Y.W. also cooperated with 
the Y.M. in planning social activities for the campus. 

The officers for the year: president, Joyce Ann Kean; 
vice-president, Maxine Ball; program chairman, Mar- 
garet Harshbarger; secretary-treasurer, Gloria Steph- 
ens; social chairman, Ruth Koerber; pianist, Vergene 
Jones; sponsor, Mrs. C. J. Stowell; chaplain, Edna 
Kampmeyer; room chairmen, Flossie Hortin, Dorothy 
Faulkner.

CHORUS 

The chorus aims to give pleasure and relaxation to 
its members. It gives experience in group singing and 
stimulates interest in music. 

This year our group of singing voices filled its usual 
appointments at churches and provided special music 
for many of our chapel services. Besides the formal 
functions of the- chorus one of the outstanding events 
in this year was the Hallowe'en Party sponsored by 
the chorus. 

The chorus, under the direction of Miss Eula R. 
Smith, elected Vergene Jones, president; Shirley Berg- 
man, vice-president; Edna Kampmeyer, secretary; Larry 
Jones, treasurer; Flonda Jones, social chairman, and 
Wyvona Luman, pianist. 



TRIO 

The women's trio is chosen from members of the 
chorus. The trio sang at Salem, O'Fallon and in our 
local Methodist Church. They also furnished special 
music at the college on various occasions. The mem- 
bers are Vergene Jones, first soprano; Shirley Bergman, 
second soprano; and Virginia Phillips, alto. 

The members of the trio are also soloists, and all 
have made several public appearances this year. As 
we think of their singing we are reminded of the 
words of Ben Johnson: 

"The voice so sweet, the words so fair, 

As some soft chime had stroked the air; 

And though the sound were parted thence, 

Still left an echo in the sense."

STUDENT-FACULTY COUNCIL 

Democratic living is the principle set forth by this 
council. Representatives -from the faculty, the two 
dormitories, student body, the commuters, and the 
Lebanonites meet once a month to discuss and solve 
problems to further Christian democracy upon our 
campus. 

This year the council decided that a Homecoming 
would be unpatriotic because of the war emergency 
program. However, a day was set aside on which a 
committee meeting was called and a basketball game 
and a play were the afternoon and night features. 
The council approved of the change in the Christmas 
vacation and an extra day was added. 

By promoting democracy upon our campus we hope 
to instill it permanently into the minds of the stu- 
dents, our future Americans.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SOCIETY 

The purpose of this new organization is to promote 
an international understanding and good will among 
the- students of many allied countries. Progress is very 
promising. 

The membership is large, considering the number of 
foreign language students and the new organization. 

During our meetings we have helped beginning 
language students to write letters in Spanish or French. 
The names of the interesting pen-pals were sent on 
request. It is exciting to read of the lives of young 
people in allied countries. The development of the 
interest of our allies toward us is gratifying. 

Mrs. Gutekunst is the interested sponsor and or- 
ganizer.

REVIEW STAFF 

The McKendree Review is in its twenty-third year of 
service to the college. The Review is published every 
two weeks of the school year except during vacations. 

This year the Review is being sent to all former 
McKendreans who are now in the armed services. 

The staff is composed of the members of the jour- 
nalism classes. The editorial positions are held by 
those who have completed the elementary journalism 
courses. Any who are interested in journalism may 
serve as reporters. 

The same staff published The McKendrean. Addi- 
tional activities during the year included: two fall 
leaf rakings and High School Day. 

Gehl Devore, editor of THE McKENDREAN, was not 
a member of THE REVIEW staff.

is made devoid of politics, initiation fees, and dues. On this page are listed the 
McKendreans, four seniors and two juniors, who will be listed in the 1943-44 edition 
of Who's Who. 



DONALD HARMON 

(Senior) 

Don's leadership and cheerful smile helped to win 
many friends. His sportsmanship was shown in the 
basketball games in which he participated. He has a 
bubbling sense of humor and we shall always remem- 
ber his Iteen wit. 



THOMAS GORDON 

(Junior) 

His quiet personality and ever-ready smile pro- 
claimed him the honor of leadership in his classes. 
His amazing ability in chemistry and mathematics has 
proved that he is a true student. 



MARGARET HARSHBARGER 

(Senior) 

"Harshie" has a keen sense of humor, which every- 
one admires. Her leadership and persistence were 
shown through her successful participation of church 
organizations and campus activities. Her laughter has 
resounded over the Old Hill for four happy years. 



JOYCE ANN KEAN 

(Junior) 

"Jake" has a pleasant voice and lovely manners. 
Her high scholastic standing has proved that she is 
a competent leader in the many offices she has filled. 



GEHL DEVORE 



(Senior) 

Gehl's scholastic ability stands out on the Old Hill. 
He was always willing to lend a helping hand when 
it was needed. 



VERGENE JENKINS JONES 

(Senior) 

Vergene's musical talents have been appreciated by 
McKendree students and outsiders. From a "Voice of 
Experience", she can relate interesting facts concern- 
ing the life of an army wife. We respect her for 
coming back to school to graduate.

With the war taking most of the men away from 
the campus this year, McKendree was fortunate enough 
to have a basketball squad. All of the players were 
new on the team; nevertheless a good fighting spirit 
was prevalent throughout the season. The squad was 
handicapped by most of the team living off the cam- 
pus. At the end of the first semester McK lost their 
captain, Don Harmon, and another important player, 
John McKnelly. Edward Wright came the second 
semester and played some good ball as forward and 
guard. 

The team won four out of seven games which is 
very good considering the inexperience and the diffi- 
culty in training. Most of the players will be back 
on the campus again next year and the Purple and 
Whites should once again see a good season.

BASKETBALL LETTERMEN 



Viehe Jackson, Freshman 
Nashville — Guard 

As a first letter man Jackson played 
good offensive ball. His long shots 
helped the Bearcats in many a tight 
pinch. Jackson was always there to 
receive the ball and could be counted 
upon to bring the ball across the line. 
He still has three more years to prove 
his worth with the Bearcats. 



Captain Gehl Devore, Senior 

Altamont — Forward 

Starting late in the season, Gehl was 
able to maintain his fighting spirit and 
to encourage the fellows to four trium- 
phant games. His ability for long shots 
made him the leading scorer of the 
season. Gehl was the pushing force be- 
hind the whole team. Gehl's leadership 
and good sportsmanship will be remem- 
bered by every member of the team. 



Arthur Kleinschmidt, Sophomore 
Lebanon — Center 

"Art's" height, along with his ability, 
made him an essential part of every 
game. "Art" showed a willing and 
conscientious spirit at all times. He 
was always under the basket for the 
rebounds and added many points to 
McKendree's score. He should be the 
nucleus around which the team will be 
built next year. 



Victor Donaldson, Freshman 

Shobonier — Forward 

"Vic" always played a cool, steady 
game and made his share of points for 
McKendree. He did exceptionally well 
in the victory over Greenville. Donald- 
son will be an asset to the team next 
year. 



Ira Thetford, Sophomore 

Froeburg — Guard 

"Tiny" could always be depended 
upon to handle the ball well. He was 
even tempered and played a good, 
clean game. Thetford will be a great 
help in building a future team. No 
matter what the score was Thetford 
always kept his fighting spirit. 



Larry Jones, Senior 

Fredericktown, Mo. — Guard 

Larry was always alert and fighting 
and he played to win. He was consis- 
tent in his play, both on offense and 
defense. This is Larry's last basketball 
season and McKendree can be proud of 
his addition to the team.

Department of Physical Education for Wo- 
men, Instructor, Vergene Jones. 

In the school year 1943-44 this department 
presented two outstanding performances. A 
program of December, 1943 consisted of "A 
Model Parade", "An Indian Tranquil," and a 
"Military Flag Drill." 

The May Pole Revels of 1944 was under the 
direction of the P. E. Class. A most difficult 
and beautiful performance was given. 

Members of the class presented several 
ideas for the; May Pole Festivity. 

Class periods were composed of physical 
exercises to stimulate gracefulness; to correct 
posture; to develop proper walking habits, and 
to bring into use muscles which are often neg- 
lected and undeveloped. 

The women of the class developed creative 
ability by presenting suggestions and ideas 
pertaining to rhythmical patterns; descriptive 
stunting; and developed coordination in group 
performance.

DRUMS OF DEATH 

Drums of Death, a three-act mystery 
comedy, takes place en a desolate stretch of 
the Atlantic Coast. 

The plot revolves about the lost magic stone 
of an African tribe. Thompson and his band 
of negro cut-throats try to take the stone 
away from the Bailey mansion, where it is 
hidden. Bailey has his henchmen, too. Thus, 
a war rages. Ghosts, monsters, and hooded 
figures run on the rampage as the plot unfolds.

CRAZY HOUSE 

The College Players presented "Crazy 
House", a farce-comedy, describing the "Bel- 
dinkers", personalities. The cast were enthus- 
iastic and very cooperative. Each played his 
part to perfection. 

This play was the students' contribution for 
May Day and also to touch in some way McK's 
"funny bone" in these times. 

Remember, "laugh and the world laughss 
with you."

PECULIAR TRENDS 

THE CLASS OF '44 

The history of the Class of 1944 follows a peculiar trend. When we graduat- 
ing seniors assembled to write the history of our class, we found that only two of 
those who will be presented with sheep-skins on graduation day were among those 
who matriculated at McKendree in 1940 and will finish in May. They are Margaret 
Harshbarger and Gehl Devore. The others graduating either started before Septem- 
ber, 1940 or, by attending summer school, finished their courses last September. 
The two who matriculated in 1940 and completed their work last fall are Beatrice 
Attey and Calvin Ryan. 

The other members of our graduating class began their college careers and 
finished at various times, as follows: Don Harmon and James Owens entered 
McKendree in 1939 and completed their work at the end of the first semester of 
this school year. George Kennedy came to McKendree from Millikin as a sopho- 
more in 1941 and graduated at the end of the 1943 term. Malcolm Myres came 
to McKendree from Blackburn as a junior in January 1942 and completed his work 
last summer. Jesse Seiber came to McKendree as a second semester freshman, 
transferring credits from Trinity Gospel Bible School at Evansville, Indiana, in 1941. 
Cyril Curtis matriculated in 1939 and finished last summer. 

Edna Kraemer receives her degree with this graduating class. In 1941 Maxine 
Ball came from Blackburn as a second semester freshman and finishes in May. 
Alvin Whittemore began pre-college work at McKendree in 1940 and graduates 
in May. Robert Herman enrolled at McKendree in 1938 and is listed among the 
graduating seniors. Vergene Jenkins Jones, who received the Public School Music 
Diploma from McKendree in 1938, returned to the campus last summer and will 
finish her A.B. degree with this class. 

Let us now reminisce. The fifty-eight freshmen of 1940, under the able leader- 
ship of President Boyd "Tex" Anderson, made history by gaining possession of the 
chapel bell, after enjoying an undisturbed freshman picnic. Vice-president Bob 
Matthews, Secretary Alberta Young, and Treasurer Bonnie Bell ably assisted "Tex" 
in the aforementioned incident and in carrying on the other activities of the class. 

The thirty members of the sophomore class of 1941, with the efficient leader- 
ship of Gehl Devore, aided by Vice-president Margaret Saxe, Secretary Bob 
Matthews, Treasurer Robert Dannenbrink, and Sergeant of Arms Boyd Anderson, 
were active in various school activities. Several members of the class took part 
in that famous hair cutting initiation incident, which will not soon be forgotten 
by the '41 freshmen. 

The fifteen juniors, with George Kennedy as President, Margaret Harshbarger, 
Vice-president, Maxine Ball, Secretary, Art Hinson, Treasurer, Robert Dannenbrink, 
Sergeant of Arms, were campus leaders and were instrumental in helping to promote 
extra curricular activities. 

The fifteen seniors, only eight of whom have been on the campus this school 
year, headed by Gehl Devore, with Vice-president James Owens, Secretary Vergene 
Jones, Treasurer Maxine Ball, Sergeant of Arms Margaret Harshbarger and Don 
Harmon, have made up in quality what they have lacked in quantity. Members of 
the class have been leaders of various organizations and groups, including the 
three literary societies, student body, glee club, "Y's", dramatic societies, and 
athletics. 

The changing constituency of the class may be attributed largely to the 
numerous abnormalities brought about by World War II. We have not exactly 
"set the world on fire", but many of the ambitious freshmen who came to the 
"Old Hill" in 1940 are helping to extinguish the fires of hatred and greed, which 
are both causes and results of war.

PECULIAR TRENDS 

THE CLASS OF '45 

Although the class of '45 was greatly diminished in number from the previous 
year, it was not diminished in the force it had upon McKendree, both socially and 
academically. 

When we started our learning on the "Old Hill" there were fifty boys and girls, 
but soon after we arrived here the war turned us into mature ladies and gentlemen. 
The men began to leave one by one to enter the armed forces and the girls to 
become teachers and war workers. 

Although our freshie year was marked by green caps, a successful picnic, and 
a now famous bell ringing, we have remained gay, but not as lighthearted. We 
think of our class members from New Guinea to England, and then we turn to 
study our accelerated program, so we can soon work and fight to make democ- 
racy live. 

Perhaps there will be only a few of us walk the Centennial Path in caps and 
gowns to receive our degrees, but all of us, regardless of where we strayed 
by the wayside, will remember the life on the "Old Hill", and know that perhaps 
we did something for the proud name of McKendree, which we will always revere 
and honor! 

THE CLASS OF '46 

A year ago you saw us, thirty-six new faces in the yearbook. In the fall we 
came, happy and carefree, hoping to find an honored place in the ranks of loyal 
McKendreans. The upper classmen and friends of the college gave us the heartiest 
welcome ever, and soon we felt at home. 

It was not long until we began to understand that ours was a position to be 
envied. Determined to uphold our college for four busy years before becoming 
active alumni, we accepted the McKendree traditions as our own. We became a 
happy crowd and our associations here during two short years have not diminished 
that feeling. 

How well we remember those nights when, footsore and weary, our boys spent 
long hours on the open road with only the stars for company. The none-the-less- 
stronger sex of our class suffered similar humiliation when roped together and forced 
to wear costumes befitting a family reunion of witches, then marched about in 
the streets of Lebanon. According to some, Lake Beautiful is not any too suitable 
for a bathing place. We added all this social orientation to college life to our list 
of memories and pressed on toward upper class standings. 

This spring finds more than half of our boys supporting in another way — by 
supporting our nation. While we wait for the day when our pals, friends, and 
sweethearts will come back, we, the class of '46, claim a double share of that famed 
spirit of 76 in carrying on and in lifting our alma mater to greater fame than 
ever before. 

". . . . May we ever hold thee true and wise and right 
Honor purple and the white 
And for victory we'll always fight 
Till we win for old McK. 

THE CLASS OF '47 

When we, the class of '47, enrolled as the freshmen of McKendree last Septem- 
ber, we were just as green and scared as the average college freshman. Before 
many days had passed, however, we had learned our way around the camous and 
had begun to feel a part of the college. 

Eager to do our part in upholding McKendree's traditions, we elected Mode 
Powell as our leader. Harold Garrett as vice-president, Dorothy Faulkner as secre- 
tary, and "Beckie" Giles as treasurer, ably assisted our president in all the 
undertakings. We held the annual freshman picnic and endured the moonlight 
hikes and. dips in Lake Beautiful that accompanied initiation week. We proved our 
ability and talent by giving an all-freshman program in the chapel. 

At the close of our first year at McKendree, we are proud to have lived that 
year. We have accepted as our own the high ideals and standards of the college 
that has been serving its country so faithfully for over one hundred years. Now we 
are looking forward to our next three years in the college on the "Old Hill".

ALMA MATER 

A 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 . . . 

CHORUS 
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 

Honor purple and the white 
And for victory we'll always fight 

Til we win for old Mc-K . . . 

Enduring and strong she stands there, 

Stands upon our College Hill . . . 
Tho' others may out-number 

She holds the first place still, 
For beauty, truth and knowledge, 

And for service without bound . . . 
Then let us raise our voices 

Until the plains resound . . .
