UT OF a past rich in tradition and heritage McKendree is going for- 
ward to a more glorious future. A future built on the many years of 
Christian atmosphere and influence which have endowed her many 
students with Christian character, conduct, and citizenship. A future of which 
all of us shall be proud. 

McKendree has undertaken a campaign to obtain financial aid to insure 
her rightful place as a Christian institution in the future. A new science hall 
and gymnasium and many other improvements are planned. The success of 
the campaign will enable McKendree to continue the wealth of Christian in- 
fluence which has been effective for over a century. 

This then — the future, built on the past — is the theme of our annual. A 
future which will continue her rich tradition and heritage. A future in which 
she may continue to say — "Christian without apology and Methodist with 
pride."

The 1948 McKendrectn Staff proudly dedicates this book to 
you, Professor Klein schmidt. The fact that you have been on the 
campus for so many years is proof that you have been admired 
and respected by all. 



The students who have come in contact with you will long 
remember your strong influence as a man of Christian character 
and high educational ideals. You have given unselfishly of your 
time to the students and they will never forget the influence of 
your musical talent.

CARL C. BRACY. A.B.. Th.M.. D.D. 

President 



As their leader, President Carl C. Bracy has won the hearts 
and admiration of the faculty. His friendliness, versatility, and 
sense of humor have endeared him to the entire student body. 
Both faculty and students feel that there is no one more capable 
of guiding McKendree's future. He was at one time a stu- 
dent at McKendree and knows well the traditions and heritage 
of her past. Now, as her president, he has great plans for her 
future. With President Bracy as her guide all of us are confident 
that this future will be even more glorious than the past.

PLATONIAN LITERARY SOCIETY 

Plato, like our College, has prepared and continues to prepare 
for a great future. As has always been her tradition, she has 
strived to improve as an organization. Quietly, without public 
display or show, she has improved and benefited during the 
past year. 

Not only has she benefited and improved as an organization 
but also in her desire to make the Platonian Society in the 
minds of McKendreans that which Plato is among philosophers. 



PHILOSOPHIAN LITERARY SOCIETY 

Philo, with one of its largest memberships in the history of the 
society, continued in its one hundred and eleventh year in grand 
style. Open sessions, The Glenn McCormack Oratorical Contest, 
and various selected closed sessions highlighted the year's ac- 
tivities. 

Money was donated by both alumni and student Philosophians 
to redecorate the Old Hall. As an eventful year draws to a 
close, the star in Philo Hall is still shining brightly.

CLIONIAN LITERARY SOCIETY 



McKENDREE EX- G. I. CLUB 



The women's literary society has again maintained its place 
on McKendree's campus as one of the more prominent organiza- 
tions. During the regular weekly meetings its members have 
enjoyed many interesting and worthwhile programs. 

The highlights of its successful year were two initiations, the 
Amanda Glen Declamation Contest, and several open sessions, 
including the traditional Sadie Hawkins' session. 



The McKendree Ex-G. I. Club opened its fourth semester of 
activity in the fall of 1947. Social meetings were held and fur- 
ther meetings and activities were planned for the second 
semester. 

Dean Van Winkle, a former Major in the United States Corps 
of Chaplains, was given an honorary membership in the organ- 
ization.

STUDENT FACULTY COUNCIL 

The purpose of the Student Faculty Council is to create a bet- 
ter understanding between the faculty and the students on the 
campus. A democratic organization, the council discusses current 
campus problems and their possible solutions. The organization 
also planned the Home-coming program. 

The council consists of six faculty members, chosen by the 
President and Chairman of the council, Dr. Carl Bracy, and six 
members representing six groups of students.

STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The Student Christian Association has completed its second 
successful year. The emphasis has been placed on the chal- 
lenging of the students in higher living and to greater service. 

Every Wednesday evening the students gathered in Clio Hall 
to unite their hearts and their voices in Christian fellowship 
Visiting speakers brought to the group a diversified program. 
Several ail-school parties were also sponsored by Ihe group.

McKENDREAN STAFF 

As the 1948 McKendrean goes to press, the staff's pleasant 
dreams of a task well done are mingled with nightmares of past 
events, namely: picture-taking days, ads to be sold, students to 
be classified, and deadlines to be met. 

Looking back it has, however, been a worthwhile experience. 
What this year's staff lacked in experience was more than com- 
pensated for by its enthusiasm. The annual stunt show was 
again sponsored by the group. 



ALPHA PSI OMEGA 

The Alpha Theta cast of Alpha Psi Omega is the national 
honorary fraternity for dramatics on the campus. Its purpose is 
to develop and promote dramatic interests in the student body. 

It elects as members those students who distinguish themselves 
in college dramatics.

PUBLIC AFFAIRS FORUM 

The McKendree College Public Affairs Forum was organized 
October 9, 1947. This was the first international relations group 
on the campus in many years. Its purpose is to discuss current 
national and international public affairs in an open forum. Prof. 
Nell G. Oppitz and Prof. L. K. Fox are the faculty sponsors. 

Outstanding discussion leaders were Father John Francis Ban- 
non, director of the department of history at St. Louis University, 
and David Wilson, regional representative of the C.I.O. 



INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SOCIETY 

The International Student Society, now in its fifth year, was 
organized for the purpose of promoting international friendship 
and improvement of cultural relations between all nations 
through correspondence with students. 

Membership is limited to those who have had at least one 
year of foreign language. In its monthly meetings this society 
studies the customs of other countries. It also sponsored an as- 
sembly program and took part in the all-school stunt show.

RADIO SPEAKING CLASS 

The radio speaking and production course was resumed at 
McKendree in September, 1947. The class produced many mu- 
sical and interesting variety programs over radio station WIBV, 
Belleville, each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Since the in- 
auguration of the programs, various McKendree alumni, college 
students, and campus guests were interviewed. Numerous tal- 
ented music students gave both individual and participating 
recitals over the air. 



KAPPA CHI 

The Beta Chapter of the national Kappa Chi Fellowship was 
established on the McKendree College campus in 1944. It is 
composed of students who are preparing for full-time Christian 
service. Its aims are to furnish Christian fellowship to the group 
as well as to provide inspiration and information concerning the 
future work of the members. These aims are furthered in month-

CHORUS 

The college chorus, under the direction of Chester A. Bagg, 
enjoyed a successful 1947-48 season. 

Highlights of the season were the presentation of Handel's 
"Messiah" on December 14, the spring tour in April, and several 
broadcasts over WIBV, the Belleville radio station. The group 
also sang in chapel, at important organization meetings, and 
had a spring concert. 

Officers were: President, Jean Smith; Librarians, Orville Schanz 
and Mable Cozart; Secretary-Treasurer, Ella Jones. 



CHAPEL CHOIR 

This double quartet was organized for the purpose of provid- 
ing sacred music for the chapel programs. The group also pre- 
sented music in Carlyle and Belleville. The choir was under 
the direction of Chester A. Bagg.

MEN'S OCTETTE 

This musical organization has provided entertainment for spe- 
cial school functions and has represented the college by appear- 
ing in activities outside the school. The members composing 
the Men's Octette were selected from the chorus, although selec- 
tion is not necessarily determined by membership in the chorus. 

Many beautiful and unusual arrangements have found their 
way to the listening ear through the efforts of these men and 
their director, Prof. Chester A. Bagg. 



WOMEN'S SEXTETTE 

The Women's Sextette has provided music for special school 
occasions and has, upon special request, represented the college 
in outside communities. 

The future plans of this progressive organization includes a 
spring tour and special music for the spring conference and for 
the local Dames' Club meetings. 

This organization is under the direction of Miss Margaret Sapp.

FOOTBALL 




KENNETH AUSTIN, Sophomore Evansville 

Tackle Two-year Letterman 

"Burly" was one of the lightest linesmen 
but compensated for this by his fighting 
spirit. Many times he moved men forty 
pounds heavier than he. He was selected as 
an all-conference tackle in the Pioneer League. 



JIM SELLS, Freshman East St. Louis 

Halfback One-year Letterman 

Jim was the "spark plug" of the squad. 
He was small but mighty and could find 
openings in the opponents line to go ahead 
for gains. He was also a surprisingly good 
defense man. He will be back for two more 
years. 



HOWARD HURSEY. Sophomore East St. Louis 
Tackle Two-year Letterman 

Howard was used as both a guard and a 
tackle. Although "Mad Dog" was handi- 
capped for the greater part of the year by 
a bad ankle, he was a very competent lines- 
man. He will return next year for his third 
season. 



GENE BRIGGS, Sophomore Granite City 

Halfback Two-year Letterman 

Gene was again the same hard-driving 
back we remember from last year. He han- 
dled many of the passing duties, was a 
quick kicker, and a smart man for pass de- 
fense. He is looking forward to his third 
year at McKendree. 



MASON HOLMES, Junior East St. Louis 

Center Two-year Letterman 

"Duke" was the largest man on the squad. 
He played center on offense and guard on 
defense. He was an outstanding defensive 
man and was selected as all-conference cen- 
ter. He will end his football record here at 
McKendree next year. 



ELVIS ROSENBERGER, Sophomore Centralia 
Halfback Two-year Letterman 

"Rosie" was known as the "scat-back" of 
McKendiee. Just one hole in the opponent's 
line and he was on his way. He also shared 
in signal calling and passing. He will be 
with us again next year for his third con- 
secutive year. 



FOOTBALL 



ED MADDOX. Freshman West Frankfort 

Halfback One-year Letterman 

"Banty" was a fast and very tricky player 
and was always a scrapper whether on de- 
fense or offense. He worked equally well 
from "T" or single wing positions and did 
his part in the Maddox to Dillard combina- 
tion. He will be with us again next year. 



RICHARD PITTENGER. Sophomore Vandalia 
Guard Two-year Letterman 

"Pit" united last year's experience with 
this year's ability to make a very fine guard. 

He was often found at the bottom of the 
center line "pile ups." He will be with us 
again next year. 



ED GRANT. Freshman Fairfield 

Fullback One-year Letterman 

Ed handled the ball on spinners and re- 
verses and was a hard-driving runner. He 
was also a very good punter and will be a 
very great help to the team next year. 



ROY KATAYAMA. Freshman Unity 

Tackle One-year Letterman 

Roy played in almost any position with 
equal ability. When he was backing the line 
few men got by him. When he played 
tackle, guard, or center he was hard to beat. 
He will be even more valuable to our team 
next year. 



CHARLIE ORD, Freshman Lebanon 

End One-year Letterman 

Charlie was a big, rough player who was 
always eager to learn the finer points of the 
game. He battled his way through the line 
like a veteran when at fullback position. He 
played both line and backfield and has one 
of McKendree's coveted touchdowns. 



NEIL DILLARD, Freshman West Frankfort 

End One year Letterman 

Neil was a competent ball player when he 
came to McKendree and very few players 
were able to get around him. He was a 
smart player, caught passes with ease, and 
had plenty of pep. He will be a valuable 
asset to next year's team. 




FOOTBALL 




FORREST BACHMAN. Freshman Lebanon 

Guard One-year Letterman 

Forrest was a small, very fast, hard-charg- 
ing linesman. Although "Bach" had a rib in- 
jury, he was a hard tackier at all times. 
Watch for him next year! 



BOB SIMPSON, Sophomore Belleville 

Guard Two-year Letterman 

Bob was quiet and always eager to gain 
experience. He was a "chunky" fighting 
guard and could be depended upon to do his 
duties at the line. He will be with us again 
next year. 



JOHN CRUTCHER, Freshman Millstadt 

End One-year Letterman 

John took his first year of football in good 
stride. He was a good target and an able 
receiver. His year of experience will make 
him a valuable player next year.

The members of the team wish to express their

edge, were indeed an asset to the team. 



"M" CLUB 

The "M" Club is an organization of lettermen whose purpose is the pro- 
motion of good sportsmanship and athletic fellowship. The club has been 
active on the campus and sponsored the festivities which accompanied the 
election and crowning of the football queen. The club organized and super- 
vised the intramural basketball and Softball leagues for the non-varsity stu- 
dents on the campus. 

Officers are: Elvis E. Rosenberger, President; C. Howard Hursey, Vice- 
President; and R. Mason Holmes, Secretary-Treasurer.

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 



CHEERLEADERS 



The Women's Athletic Association began with a large mem- 
bership this fall. The purpose of the organization is to encour- 
age healthful living, goodwill, and fellowship among students. 

The W.A.A. organized a basketball team and sponsored a 
skating party and several other social activities. 

At its annual banquet, the W.A.A. presented letters to the 
athletes who had earned them by participation in various ath- 
letic activities. 



Despite the small attendance at the games and the lack of 
cooperation from the people present, the cheerleaders are to be 
commended for the splendid work which they did. The time 
spent in preparation prior to each game was evidenced by the 
teamwork shown among them. 

Their enthusiasm and good sportsmanship was evident and 
helped to make the games more interesting and enjoyable to 
both fans and players.

HOME-COMING 




1947 HOME-COMING QUEEN 



A very talented and attractive sophomore, Miss Ella Ruth Jones, was 
chosen to reign over the Home-coming activities of 1947 on the "Old Hill." 
Ella was escorted to the throne by Elvis E. Rosenberger, captain of the football 
team. She was crowned Queen by the retiring special maid of 1946, Mrs. 
Robert Nelson, in a solemn and beautiful ceremony on Friday, October 17, 
which officially opened the celebrations of the Home-coming week-end. 

The campaign which helped to elect Ella as queen was based on her 
admirable school record. Ella has been in the Clionian Literary Society, the 
McKendree Chorus, the Girls' Sextette, the Women's Athletic Association, and 
has been an untiring and vivacious cheerleader. 

The coronation of the gracious Miss Jones, along with her presence at the 
remaining activities of the week-end, provided the charming touch to the 
1947 McKendree Home-coming.

MAY FETE 




1948 QUEEN OF THE MAY 



Miss Jean Harris, attractive, dark-haired senior, was chosen to reign over 
the festivities of the Maytime on the McKendree campus in '48. Miss Harris 
has been a McKendrean for two years. In that time she participated in jour- 
nalistic, religious, and athletic organizations on the "Hill." This past year 
Jean was an assistant in the radio production work, and had one of the lead 
parts as "Hy" in the performance of the play production class, "Brother Goose." 

Jean has also been active in the senior class and was elected Secretary- 
Treasurer for this year. Our Maytime Royalty was the second attendant to 
the Home-coming Queen in 1947. 

The Queen's maid of honor, Miss Elizabeth Crisp of St. Louis, crowned 
the Queen of May. 

"Tomorrow'll be the happiest time of all the glad new-year; 

Tomorrow'll be of all the year the maddest, merriest day, 

For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother, I'm to be Queen o' the May." 

"The May Queen," Tennyson.

CLASS OF 1948 

Now that most of us have recovered from that horrid smell of pigs — or 
was it hogs? — the freshmen of the fall of '44, having become dignified seniors, 
wish to place here some of our most sacred memories for the enlightenment 
of posterity. 

Ah, that fateful Thursday night! Woe to our perfect plans for a snack 
behind the shack during "Comp." Forced to leave the campus, we dodged 
into cornfields and finally escaped to O'Fallon. Hours later we came back to 
storm the chapel — unsucessfully, of course — and then to hunt for a resting 
place. Our choice — the only thing open that late — a pig sty! "Little Joe," 
'Blackie," and Don Brown saw that form at the chapel window! Broadway 
stayed to protect the girls! 

Ours has been the only class to have an exclusive wiener roast complete 
with "late pers" for girls. Harmony ran high inside the football field with 
'Shine On Harvest Moon," but upperclass girls were pacing up and down 
outside. 

The sales record of Tipsy Topsy Toe Nail Polish must have soared high 
since the era of the plaid shirt trio, the Ozarkian preacher Hahs and sound 
effects Berger. 

Officers of that memorable year were President Broadway, Vice-President 
Hanbaum, and Secretary-Treasurer Crisp. 

In our second year we elected Thelma Troutt as our president. Who can 
forget Wilma Bonney at the reception hall piano, Virginia Drennan's "Oh, 
No" at the Christmas program, Donna Sanker's big, big diamond, and Billy 
Gene Hahs, Jr.? As sophs we sponsored a romantic yet spottily painful 
skating party at the Moonlight rink in Troy. 

This was the year Mom Hertenstein's last daughter was married, and the 
freshmen rang the bell after the upperclassmen opened the belfry and said, 
"Just try." 

With Lu Walker as our chief we took our responsibility as juniors and 
upperclassmen. During this year we sponsored a hay-ride which was enjoyed 
by all — especially those in the race for cider and doughnuts. 

The banquet we sponsored as a farewell for our beloved seniors turned 
out to be an enjoyable meal, even though we couldn't have real chicken or 
tomatoes. 

In our last year we are proud to be termed "seniors." During the fresh- 
man picnic we certainly ate our share of the food. We saw the redecoration 
of Clark and Carnegie Halls, and the influx of more and more ex-G. I.s. We 
have given the student body two presidents, Don Lowe and Clyde Funk- 
houser, both of whom our class is very proud. Clyde was also elected presi- 
dent of our senior class. 

As we look backward on our journey, these and many more memories 
crowd into our minds. As we journey into the future, we hope that the years 
will be as eventful, interesting, and well spent as those here at McKendree. 



THE CLASS OF 1949 

As we look back, we have pleasant memories of many events here on 
the "Old Hill," such as, ringing the chapel bell, our freshman program, and 
the thrill of being a sophomore. 

In four years ours was the first freshman class to ring the bell. With 
George Troutt, our president, as master of ceremonies, we gave a program 
for Janelle Kleinschmidt, our Home-coming Queen. 

Last year was most memorable because of our accomplishments as a 
class. Again our candidate, Doris Phillips Brown, was chosen queen. 

Our class is small this year, but the loyalty is still there. Our officers are 
Mary Hilton Sleeper, president; Mason Holmes, vice-president; Kenneth Wal- 
ters, secretary-treasurer. 

As time went by we realized our responsibility as students. Now looking 
to the future, may next year be a glorious one but may we not forget the 
traditions we must uphold as a graduating class of McKendree. 



CLASS OF 1950 

The close of this school year brings our class to a significant milestone 
along the road to higher education; we have reached the half-way mark. 
Although many changes have taken place among our ranks, we have come 
to realize how quickly two years can pass. Many friendships formed here on 
the "Old Hill" may well prove to be lifelong. 

Among our accomplishments during the past two years, we take pride in 
having chosen the candidate to become Home-coming Queen for the '47-'48 
season, not to mention our "dark horse" candidate who received alarming 
consideration. Our success in ringing the chapel bell as freshmen will remain 
with us as a pleasant memory. 

We face the two years before us with a mixed feeling of anxiety and 
regret. Although the new decade will bring to us the diplomas for which we 
have worked, it will bring with it the last days at a fine old school. 



CLASS OF 1951 

Even though a vivid green glow emitted from the freshman class at the 
end of registration day, it was not long until we established ourselves as 
worthy McKendreans. We found initiation to be enjoyable if uncomfortable. 
The freshman girls in their last night of initiation displayed their enthusiasm by 
taking the long, long way back to the "Old Hill." We all blossomed out in 
our little green caps, and stayed off the grass (when someone was looking). 
We were reverent to the seniors, but they really didn't scare us. We again 
showed our school spirit when, under the leadership of our president, George 
Pathenos, the class worked together in an extensive advertising campaign for 
Joyce Crews, our candidate for Home-coming Queen. We saw her serve as 
first maid of honor, following the Formal Freshman Program, during which we 
displayed our talent and ability. 

Sad to state, our ringing of the chapel bell was not official. Our picnic, 
however, was a success, even though it did consist of hiding out in the weeds 
in order to eat our ice cream and bread — the upperclassmen enjoyed the rest 
of our food we've been told. Our class took on a doubtful undertaking, that 
of sponsoring Sadie Hawkins' week. Needless to say, it was a success. 

We have contributed our share of talent and athletes, and have taken a 
part in all school activities. This year at McKendree has made a change in 
us both as individuals and as a class. We are grateful for what we have 
learned and are looking to the future years here on the "Old Hill."
