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

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.
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.

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
Not only has she benefited and improved as an organization
but also in her desire to make the Platonian Society in the

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-

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.

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

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.
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-
ly formal sessions and in various social gatherings.
The organization numbers about 40 members this year with
the following elected officers: Clyde Funkhouser, President; Don
Zimmerlee, Vice-President; Bill Russell, Secretary-Treasurer. Dr.
Meredith F. Eller is Faculty Sponsor.

McKENDREE REVIEW STAFF
To start its twenty-sixth year of publication, the McKendree Review
changed its format, after the initial issue, to a four-page, five-column, 12-em
paper. Six issues, three of which were six-page issues, were published during
the first semester.
Two editors served during the year. Donald Lowe acted in that capacity
during the first semester and Edward Kimmle took control in January.

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.
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.

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.
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.

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
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
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-
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
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.
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
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 Women's Athletic Association began with a large mem-

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-
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.

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.

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
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
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
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,
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
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-
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."
