The 1952 McKendrean comes 
to you with the best wishes 
of the McKendrean staff 




en 





The tree, in its snow dress or decked out for spring, 
Adds beauty around us and makes the heart sing; 
The oak, pine, and dogwood, to name just a few, 
Are dotting our campus with nature's rich hue. 



[2] 




Among the traditions McKendree holds dear 
Is that of tree planting by seniors each year; 
The saplings add greatness, dignity, and grace, 
As beside older trees, they, too, take their plac,

Lebanon, Illinois

Dedication 



DR. EDWIN P. BAKER— 

Whose German expressions and phrases 
have inspired many of his students, whose good 
humor has always lifted spirits, and whose 
faithfulness and service to McKendree for 
more than 50 years are praised by all those 
who know him.

Dedication 



DR. WILLIAM C. WALTON— 

Whose Christian faith and life throughout 
his many years on the "Old Hill," both in 
teaching and in his duties as treasurer of the 
college, are cherished by all, and through whom 
was made possible the Walton Foundation.

even-tempered, modest young man who 

liable in every respect. His friends will remember 

Reman and a fine craftsman in the field of journalism. 

ind of person whom the world can least afford to lose, 

ight a cool reasonableness to his convictions that made 

iversation and persuasion. During World War II John 

led the distinguished Hying cross and the air medal with 

dusters.

ADMINISTRATION 



The Benson V/ood Library 



Throughout the year the library has received several large and valuable 
collections. 

These collections include those presented by Dr. Samuel Engel Burr, jr., 
chairman of the Department of Education, American University, Washington, 
D. C, Cyrus Gentry, vice-president of the Shell Oil Company, Milburn P. Akers, 
executive editor of the Chicago Sun-Times, and Robert C. Adair, president of 
the Goodwill Industries, St. Louis. 

With each day bringing additional volumes to the library, plans are to be 
made soon for the building of a new addition.

MRS. DORAH GROW

X - 




To honor President and Mrs. Russell Grow on the 
occasion of their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Mrs. 
Richard Taylor, their daughter, and their son, Engel, enter- 
tained at a tea at the president's home, The Stevenson House, 
on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 3. 

Dr. Russell Grow, who assumed his duties as president of the college in 
January, 1950, has today seen the completion of some of his plans and dreams for 
McKendree — the improvement of the faculty, renovation of the dormitories, crea- 
tion of the Eisenmayer Student Union, and expansion of the evening college. 

Mrs. Grow, a most gracious lad}-, has been influential in the McKendree 
growth. Her schedule is kept full with duties as president of the WSCS, campus 
social activities, and teaching in business education at the college.

as they followed the Bearcats to one thrilling athletic event after another.

Basketball 



When the Bearcats defeated Principia in 
their last game, Feb. 25, it brought Coach 
'Hugh F. Redden's record in basketball dur- 
ing his two year stay on the Hill to an 
enviable 44-11, or 80% victories. 

Ron Herrin gained ,his fourth letter in 
varsity basketball this season. and made it 
his most brilliant. Ron suffered a broken 
arm in the thrilling Shurtleff victory. 

Clifford "Tip" Maddox transferred here 
as a sophomore and quickly became a crowd 
favorite with his stirring all-around play. 
"Tip" won three "M's" in varsitv seasons.

H i r I ,," f eaS ° n ^ an ° ther SUCcessful °™ for the Bearcats of Coach 
Hugh F. Redden. Losing five of the first ten men from the previous year's squad 
and playing a much tougher schedule, McKendree nevertheless finished with an 
excellent 21-6 record. 

The Bearcats in these 27 games racked up 2,043 points, for an average of 75 6 
a game, while holding their opponents to 1,640 points, for an average of 60 7 As 
a team, they also ranked high in N.A.I.B. statistics for total offense and field goal 
percentage. ' s 

Gene Hoyt broke his season scoring mark set the previous year, by totaling 
701 points- for an average of 25.96. Elected "most valuable" by his teammates 
Hoyt also broke the late Jim Burnett's individual one game record, set in 1950 
when he scored 39 points against Greenville. 

Then, Feb. 18 at Mascoutah against Rolla, Hoyt broke his own mark and set 
another one of 45 points for future Bearcats to aim at. Gene also ranked first in 
total rebounds for small college players and near the top in individual offense. 

High spots of the season were the wins over Illinois college Scott Air Force 
Base, Ft. Leonard Wood, Oakland City, and the never-to-be forgotten Shurtleff 
game, which was won in the last 8 seconds of play.

Junior varsity basketball made its first appearance at McKendree during the 
1951-52 season, and the baby Bearcats of Coach Samuel Carter gave a good ac- 
count of themselves, breaking even in 12 games. 

Highlights of an interesting slate were the games with the powerful St. Louis 
University JV's. Although losing both, the junior Bearcats gave the boys from 
St. Louis quite a scare, especially in the game at Kiel Auditorium. 

Otherwise the squad defeated every team they played, trouncing Sanford- 
Brown twice and avenging initial losses to Belleville J. C, Stowe, and Harris.

TracX 



The Bearcats gave a good account of themselves on the cinder paths in 1951, 
despite great losses from the previous year's squad. The trackmen participated in 
four regular meets, two dual and two triangular, and emerged the victors in one, 
and never finishing lower than second in the others. They also placed third in a 
five school meet held in St. Louis, and placed 10th in the Rose Poly Relays held 
in Terre Haute, Ind. 

The squad was very well-balanced in the matter of scoring. Top point getter 
was Charles Leckrone, with 45^4 in pole vault, broad jump, and high jump events, 
who barely edged out Bill Lambeth, who collected 45 J/J in the dashes and the 
pole vault. 

Other outstanding point winners were Jim Redden, 220 and 440 yds. ; Cloyce 
Burns, shot and discus; Ron Herrin, 100 and 220 yds.; and Engel Grow, javelin 
and shot.

Mens Basketball 

Thirty-six men, comprising four squads, 
participated in the mid-winter basketball 
league, held in the new Eisenmayer Student 
Union. 

High caliber play featured these games, 
as there were many players in the McKen- 
dree basketball "hotbed" besides those who 
performed for the varsity and the JayVee's. 

Ed Biznek, (shown at right) was repre- 
sentative of the physical education majors 
who gained practical knowledge through 
intramural direction. 



Mens Football 



Four strong teams entered the touch foot- 
ball league during the fall semester, and the 
Bullets (pictured at left) came out on top 
with a record of four wins, no losses, and 
one tie. 

After the regular season, the "cream" of 
the other three teams formed an All-Star 
squad who finally made the champs taste 
defeat to the tune of 25 to 12. 



Sports 




Ed Biznek calls a close one. 



Other intramural activity during the year included women's basketball, of 
which there were four teams, badminton, men and women's, and table tennis, 
men and women's.

Who's Who 



For the year 1951-52 four senior students were 
selected for inclusion in "Who's Who Among Students 
in American Universities and Colleges."

The students are chosen on the basis of scholarship,

Jbependable (Performance 



As you embark upon your journey through life, to undertake the duties 
of your chosen occupation, success depends upon the performance with 
which you execute these duties. 

The American way of life has always been attributed to dependable per- 
formance, by its discoverers, explorers, and generation after generation 
of its settlers. 

We stand in peril today of losing that way of life . . . because dependable 
performance is gradually being replaced by a premium of incapability, 
dishonesty, and ignorance. 

As each successive graduating class has faced its challenge, so do you 
today . . . the challenge of Dependable Performance . . . the founda- 
tion of America.
