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 bons and daughters praise her
With voices, hearts and hands . . .
hiail to thee our dear old McKendree
May v^e 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
hlonor purple and the white . . .
And for victory we'll always fight
Till 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 . . .

, J-ke '==>taU,
Our record of days of McKendree during a year
when this college, which has actively stood for
Christian education and love of country during
the Mexican War, the Civil War, the Spanish-
American War and the trying days of the first
World War, is once again devoting itself whole-
heartedly to securing victory for the ideals upon
which our country was founded — the right of
mankind to realize the great inalienable human
rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of hlop-
In this — Volume XI, Mew Series —

have been called to go and defend their homes and free-
doms on the battle fields of the world, in Africa, India,
Australia and on the islands of the sea.
It is to those sons of our Alma Mater who have so courage-
ously gone forth to defend, with their lives if need be, the
liberties of all free men everywhere — to those who hove
given most and asked least in return —
WE DEDICATE THIS VOLUME.
It is inevitable that in every college changes should
occur in the teaching staff. These vacancies are filled
and the work goes on as before. The administration is
satisfied if the work is maintained at the desired standard
When Doctor James Cloy Dolley requested that he be
granted the retired status, last June the College sustained a
loss for which there was no compensation. Provision was
made for the work of his department, but a landmark hod
been removed. When, on February 6th, he departed from
among the living the loss was made absolute.
For forty-three years Doctor Dolley gave generously of his
scholarship, counsel and friendship to hundreds whose lives
were enriched, inspired and stabilized by his ministrations.
Kindly and urbane by nature, his unaffected sincerity built
for him o secure place in the affections of students and
colleagues. hHe v/os loyal to his high ideals in every depart-
ment of his service. Hie served faithfully, uncomplainingly in
some of the most difficult years of the life of the College.
His services, his personality, his character have branded
themselves on the memory of oil who love McKendree Col-

If we work upon marble it will perish, if
we work upon brass, time will efface it,
if we rear temples they will crumble Into
dust, but if we work upon immortal minds,
if we imbue them with principles, with the
just fear of God and love of our fellow
man, we engrave on these tables some-
thing that will brighten all eternity.

it is something to use your time and

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
The Class of '44 was able to keep up its renown because of its active social life. Beginning with
its Freshman year the present Junior class has been outstanding. Through careful maneuvering,
they were able to enjov the annual Freshman Feed without interruption by the upper-classmen. As
Sophomores this class ' a hay-ride, an unusual activity on the campus. The Friday night All-College
parties v/ere begun in e spirits with the Class of '44 sponsoring one of their genuine hoy-rides, with
hay, horses, chaperons, et cl.
Time passes on, and so it seems that students do also. The Class of '44 began its career with
an enrollment of fifty-seven for the Freshman year. After the Freshman thinning, there were thirty-
five the second year. This year there were nmeteen in the class. From all appearances the number
will decrease proportionately next year.
The class of '44 has a good spirit of service In its attitude toward life. A number of the men
who once answered to the roll coll of the Class of '44 ore now answering the Roll Call of the
Colors. Of lost year's thirty-five students, six did not return because of service to the government;
two because of teaching; two because of marriage; and two because of nurse's training. Among the
numbers of the present class there ore five men In the Reserves, seven men serving as Student Min-
isters, two women training for Deaconesses. Two men have left school for the Navy since September.
McKendree Is proud of the service rendered by this class.
Though, In number, the Class of '44 Is dlmlnlsnlng, the spirit of the class and its loyalty to McKen-
dree Is ever the same.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
Last year's Freshman class of fifty husky lads and iimid
lassies has dwindled down to a Sophomore class of twenty-
four. To moke up for the decrease in numbers, the class
has put forth twice as much effort as it might have ex-
hibited in normal times.
With their own successful picnic of last year, the hair-
cuts, and the night rides in mind, the group initiated this
year's "greenies" in proper style.
The majority of the members of the class participate
in the organizations and the out-side activities of the
campus. Many of its members hold executive positions in
the literary societies, the Y's, and on the staff of the Re-
view. Sophomores are well-represented in sports, too.
Just this year some of the boys hove been called into
the armed services; others have enlisted in the reserves.
Take notice of this class!
You can tell the serious Senior
By his grave and lordly airs
You can always tell a Freshman
By the colors which he weors
You can tell the ardent Junior
By his academic touch
And you can tell o Sophomore
But — you can not tell him much.

Last fall we, the Class of '46, enrolled as mem-
bers of McKendree, just as our predecessors have
done for the last one hundred and fifteen years.
Like any other Freshman class, we were green
about college life. We did not know what to ex-
pect, or how we would fit into the college scene,
but it was not long until we caught the spirit from
our upperclass friends, and became a happy port
of the college family.
As we fell into step, McKendree traditions be-
came our standards. Memories handed down
through the years became our memories. Among
them lies our initiation week durmg which many of
us became personally acquainted with Lake Beau-
tiful and the chapel belfry. Just as inspiring were
our moonlight hikes.
In our serious moods we selected our officers,
and settled down to be worthwhile Freshmen. We
were proud to take on active port in celebratmg
the annual hHomecoming and in sponsoring an All-
School play night.
Our country has called a few of us to its de-
fense, but we who remain hope, as our first year
draws to a close, that McKendree has benefited
by our having lived within her walls.
To those who will soon take our places, we give
our welcome as we pass on as upperclassmen to do
greater service for the school we love, our Alma

When a new tradition is begun on an old
campus, then it is time to pay attention, and
apparently the All-Freshman Program held on the
Friday evening of hHomecoming week end will
become an annual event. On that night the
Freshmen removed their green caps for the last
time. Then, with talent selected from thier own
ranks, they presented the following program:

CLIONIAN LITERARY SOCIETY
An outstanding spirit of loyalty and co-opera-
tion instilled in the nnembers of our society has
made this past year one to be remembered.
Former Clionians joined with the society in the
redecoration program of the hall.
Each program has been prepared by the
critics to give a wide variety in the display of
talents. Most of the programs have a central
theme around which a unification of thoughts
is possible. Several well attended open sessions
were held during the year.
Nine members were pledged this year and
Miss Conrow again was sponsor to our society.
The year can be ended with a backward
look of satisfaction, for Clio has again proved
its right to niche on our hiill.
PHILOSOPHIAN LITERARY SOCIETY
In this, Philo's 106th year, many changes have
occurred. Philo gave three men; Bernard
Logan, James Oppitz, and Cyril Curtis to the
services of our country and took six new mem-
bers under its wing.
Open sessions, the pledge banquet, and the
regular weekly meetings have won Philo a dis-
tinguished place on the campus again this year.
We are proud to give men to the service of
our country and feel that the training received
in Philo will help them be of more value to
the U. S. A.
PLATONIAN LITERARY SOCIETY
Plato this year, as was true in the past, was
a literary society containing many athletes.
Six of the seven basketball lettermen were
Plotonians. Plato met Philo on the basketball
floor as the feature of hHomecoming. Plato
emerged victorious by a 50-33 score.
Plato started the year with ten members.
Four were pledged the first semester, and four
more the second semester. Only six of these
eighteen will be lost by graduation.
This year, Plato hall was completely redec-
orated. With the contributions of many old
Plotonians, a new floor was laid and walls and
ceiling were refinished.
As long as there is a McKendree, Plato will
be in there pitching.

SIGMA BETA RHO
Sigma Beta Rho was organized to bring those
students going into full-tinne Christian service
into closer fellowship, in order that student
religious activities might be correlated into one
organization, and that weekly meetings might
be held for worship and inspiration.
Many of the students of the campus feel the
need of meditation before the hurry of the day
begins, and they hove found the morning prayer
meetings the answer to their needs. These
have been inspirational and helpful to the cam-
The Witnessing Bond has been active this
year, although handicapped by gas rationing.
Members hove held services in ten churches.
This year Sigma Beta Rho has had a new
activity In its program, the Gospel Quartet,
which sang or conducted services in twenty-one
churches where they were given a fine welcome.
SIGMA TAU DELTA
This is the seventh year of the Sigma Tou
Delta chapter on the campus. The meetings
ore held at the home of Dr. West and consist
of reports on current books of lasting interest.
The induction ceremony for four new mem-
bers was held April 12.
The purpose of the society is to enjoy litera-
ture and to create the desire to write.
The Sigma Zeto honorary science society is
a national organization whose purpose is to
encourage scientific study and to recognize stu-
dents of high scholorship in the natural sciences
and mathematics. The Beta Chapter at
McKendree College was organized in 1926.
The Chapter opened the school year 1942-
1943 with four active members: J. Frank Glot-
felty, Paul Griffin, Russel Drennon, and Dr.
Stowell. During the year the following new
pledges were initiated: Cyril Curtis, Robert
Donnebrink, Ross Hortin, James Loy, Malcolm
Myres, and Earnest Smith.
Dr. E. R. Spencer and Professor S. M. McClure
have retained their membership in the Beta
Chapter. Dr. Spencer's work on "Just Weeds"
has become widely known. Professor McClure
has devised a system for the classification of
geological specimens, which was used in organi-
zing the Waggoner Collection at McKendree
College, and has since been used to classify a
similar collection at Boll State Teachers'
College, Muncie, Indiana.
The Chapter has revived the Waggoner
Memorial Award, which is given each year to
some student in recognition of outstanding
scientific work. The winner of the award will
be announced at the Commencement exercises.

Dreaming o^ a white campus
The goals of the Association:
1. To understand the work of the area, and of
the Y. W. in general
2. To promote an interest In world citizenship.
These were studied and well carried out
through the regular meetings held each
Wednesday night. The association fulfilled its
requirements to become a participating "Y" in
the National Organization. Several of the offi-
cers attended a conference in November at
Macomb. They also plan to send a represen-
tative to the Loke Geneva Conference during
The Y. W. porticlpated with the Y. M. and
the Administration In the sacrificial meal for
the W.S.S.F. Many of Its members were blood
donors for the Red Cross. For the children in
the mountain districts of the South, it sent a box
of toys from the "Y" Christmas party and
later a box of Children's books. For war work
a few of its members knitted for Red Cross. It
also co-operated with the Y. M. In planning
social activities for the campus.
Y. M. C. A.
Early in the school year Dr. hiarold Colvin,
regional secretary of the Y.M.C.A. visited our
campus, and after talking with him our "Y"
voted to become affiliated with the national
student "Y" group.
They were instrumental in getting for a chapel
speaker. Dr. Wilhelm Solzbocher, a represen-
tative of the World Student Service Fund. After
hearing his presentation of the work and of the
urgent need for funds to corry on, the Y.M.
in co-operation with the Y. W. and the college
administration, arranged for the students and
faculty members to observe a sacrificial meal.
Income of which was $21.00, which was sent into
the national headquarters of W.S.S.F.
The dramatics organization, Little Theatre,
grew to be a large group by the second
semester for its membership increased from four
to twenty-five. The regular meeting programs
were well planned and well attended throughout
the year. The open sessions revealed talent and
the party sponsored in March was a huge
It was on active organization, for it worked
with the play-production class in sponsoring the
Homecoming play, "What A Life," the Christ-
mas ploy, "No Room In The hHotel," "The Chal-
lenge Of The Cross," and the one-act spring
plays. It took time, effort, and talent, but It was
worth it all, from the viewpoints of participants

Another school year has passed, and once
again the chorus of fine young voices has been
lifted in song. The members were very sorry
to see Miss Ridgway leave, but they were
happy to welcome Mrs. Lesher who has been a
charming and capable director.
The Glee Club this year has visited the
Methodist Churches in East St. Louis, Granite
City, and Centralia. The members also song
at our own Methodist College Church in
Lebanon, and at chapel services. Six concerts
were scheduled for April, and on May 26, the
Glee Club presented on oratorio by Mendel-
ssohn, "The hHymn of Praise." A public recital
of piano and voice students was also held in
May. One of the highlights of our social func-
tions was the moonight skating party at Troy,
Illinois. Another entertainment was the tea
which the music department gave the first of
Six interesting personalities blend into a
group of lovely voices chosen from the Glee
Club to make up the sextette. This chorus sang
at Edwordsville, Wood River, and East Alton
on April II. They also toured numerous high
schools, and they song at Scott Field one night.
The Student-Faculty council has served this
year in the capacity of "Go-between". Prob-
lems of facul+y and students were presented,
considered, and acted upon. At Homecoming,
plans for the occasion were delegated to com-
petent committees that did their port in making
it a grand success. A petition from the stu-
dent body fcr changing the spring vacation
period was presented. After passing the
council, the administration approved, and the
new dote was set.
Members of the council were chosen with
representatives from the two halls, the student
body, the commuters, and those living in
Lebanon. These met with selected faculty
members to discuss problems, needs and im-
provements. The council is a means of demo-
cratic thinking and living on the campus.

ALPHA PSI OMEGA
The local cast of the honorary dramatic
fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega, began the school
year with a small membership, but several
students became eligible through the hlome-
coming play, "What A Life." Three of these,
Shirley Miller, Gehl Devore and Earnest Smith,
were initiated into the Alpha Theto cast at an
initiation service held at the home of Mrs.
Grace Renner Welch on February 24th. Miss
Marion Conrow and Frances Robinson were also
inltioted ot the some time, both having become
eligible at an earlier date. A social evening
followed this Initiation.
There was a program and social meeting held
at the home of Miss Alleen Wilson In April and
the May meeting took the form of a garden
party to which members brought guests.

A party was given by Miss Charles, at which

Among the outstanding social activities on
the campus, Cannon's band has a hand. It
helped to create on Interest and did much to
develop school spirit. The monthly "pop con-
certs" were entertaining and the social hours
following were fun.
Both the Homecoming and the Spring con-
certs were successful in their presentations. The

new that has been added." A great deal of
new music was purchased and forced extra
hours of practice, but the practice was not in
vain, for all who heard the bond appreciated

Curtailed by the war, the Bearcats played
only seven games this season. Inexperience
and height were the factors that kept the
Purple and White from having a winning com-
bination. The squad trained hard and fought
valiantly all season, and there has never been a
team on the campus that has known more
companionship and mutual-dependence than
the war-time Purple and Whites.
That hord-fightlng bunch of girls that scrap
on the hardwood under the banner of the
Kittycubs have chalked up another successful
Because of gas and tire rationing the team
was unable to leave the campus. The town girls
afforded many a moment of play.
Only one member of the varsity will graduate
in June, so the '43-'44 team should hit the
hardwood In tip-top shape.
W. A. A.
The Women's Athletic Association raised its
membership from eight to thirteen. Initiations
were fun and the programs were interesting.
The after Christmas gift exchange party was
novel, to soy the least. We all enjoyed the
skating party that W.A.A. sponsored at Troy,
and the "splash" party was refreshing after the
final semester exams and just before the old
school bell dismissed activities for the year.

Harris Teachers 43 49
Archie Porter, Freshman,
Rosiclare, Forward, First-year letterman.
Archie was short, but he was fast and cagey. He was a vicious
fighter and had good scoring ability, hie played brilliant boll in
the Blackburn game. Archie still hos plenty of time to show the
basketball world his abilities. He has 3 more years of basketball
aheod of him.
Captain Lewis Winterrowd, Senior,
Bible Grove, Center, Third-year letterman.
Again the squad was led by Lewie. He set an excellent example
for the rest of the squad to follow. He played under the handicap
of two bad ankles all season, but he never gave up or complained.
No matter what the score might be, Lewie drove hard and did
his best to win. He was the leading scorer and key-man of the
Bearcats. Lewie played brilliantly in the tournament at Blackburn.
It will be very hard to replace Lewie next year at the center position.
Although he leaves, we know he will always be bock of the Mc-
Kendree team. Lewie's spirit, fight and ability will live on in the
minds of his teammates.
Paul Salmon, Sophomore,
Mound City, Guard, First-year letterman.
As a first-year letterman "Jock" played exceptionally good
boll. He ployed a consistent gome at guard and could always be
counted upon to bring the boll across the line. "Jock" played his
best game against Centralia Junior College. He has two more
years with the cagers and should be an essential man in building
the future teams.
Don Harmon, Junior,
Louisville, Guard, First-year letterman.
Don was one of the most dependable men on the Bearcats. He
always played a cool, steady gome and he always deposited his
share of points and played good defensive boll of all times. He
will be back next year and should be the nucleus around which the
team can be built.
Fletcher Burge, Freshman,
Eldorado, Forword, First-year letterman.
Fletch was one of the high scorers of the "Cats." He was
consistent in his ploy, both on offense and defense. He was on
artist on one-hand shots. He was even-tempered and always took
things in stride. He still has three years and will undoubtedly
prove himself a valuable asset to the McKendree cagers in years
Arthur hiinson. Junior,
Madison, Guard, First-year letterman
"Stinky" was short, but fast and aggressive. He played to
win and gave the game all he hod. He started' off as manager and
then turned in tiis first-aid kit for a suit. He sow quite a bit of
action, and proved himself on essential port of the team. He was
always In good physical condition and ready to go. He still has
another year and should go places In basketball.
James Loy, Senior,
Effingham, Guard, First-year letterman.
Jim was a key man In the "Cots" defense. He was always
alert and fighting. He played to win and always gave all he hod.
He played exceptionally well in the tournament at Blackburn in
February. He will be sadly missed by his teammates when the
season rolls around next year.
Two intramural basketball tournaments
have been held this year. The first was won
by Don Harmon's team. In the second
tournament, Surge's and Myres' teams are
tied for the lead.
Intramurals this year have brought good
spirit to the campus, many fellows played
basketball in the tournameni- that never
played before. Intramurals are valuable in
many ways and should continue on the
campus in years to come.
As part of the Homecoming program, the
traditional rivalry between the literary so-
cieties was meted out in the form of a
basketbal game. Plato defeated their arch-
rivals, Philo, in the game played on Novem-
ber 14, 1942, the score being 50-33. Plato
jumped into on early lead and was never
threatened by Philo. Myres was the big gun
for Philo with 16 points. Salmon, Winter-
rowd, and Keck each collected 12 points for
Plato. Plato's basketball team had every-
thing including a water-girl in the form of

WHAT A LIFE
"Enter to learn — Go forth to serve" is more or less the appropriate motto which is
placed over the door of the principal's office where the scenes in our hiomecoming play,
"What A Life", take place. Of course our hero, hHenry Aldrich, tries to set a shining
example for his classmates! The example which he actually succeeds in setting, results in
numerous bench-warmings In Mr. Bradley's office. Because of Barbara Pearson, Hlenry has
a misunderstanding with his history teacher. Finally, heart-rending problems are solved, but
not until his escapades have led to such complications that the audience has hod many
good laughs. The cost was well-chosen, and we agree that this play truly deserves its
title, "What A Life."

This modern Christmas play is full of humor, yet it carries with it an undercurrent of
pathos and inspiration. It portrays a hard-boiled newspaper reporter as the only one of a

couple strangely similar to another pair who were once refused admittance to an inn
many centuries ago.

Because of war-time pressure on McKendree campus no Spring ploy was given, but
at the time the Annual went to press, a group of one-act ploys sponsored by Little
Theatre were being prepared. Costs were not yet selected.
Miss Shirley Bergman, a quiet dignified Freshman, has
captivated many a heart on this Old hiill, and she reigns
supreme as our Homecoming Queen of October, 1942.
Her popularity was proved by the fact that her
election, which was sponsored by the "M" Club, was the
result of popular vote.
As Dr. Yost presented the bouquet of roses to our
lovely Queen at the informal ceremony in Eisenmier, he
paid a worthy compliment to the Queens of both this
yeor and last v/hen he said:
"Lost year our Queen had hair radiant as if distilled
of a thousand sunsets. This year our Queen has beauty
with the darker shades like a painting from the Old Dutch
Masters, and a voice lovely as the sound of many waters
— our Minne-ha-ha, Shirley Bergman."

SENIOR CLASS HIISTOiR.Y
By JAMES OPPITZ
THE FIGHTING FORTY THIRD!
So a buck sergeant wearing a moldy old Bearcat T-shirt says to his almost constant
companion, a Model-T corporal who has a crooked nose from the Shurtleff gome in 1941, "I
wonder what the gang is doing at the Coke 'N' Smoke about now!" They ore lying in a muddy
fox hole on Guadoconol, but they might just as well be crawling on their bellies in Lake Beautiful
— certainly the mosquitoes, couldn't be any worse!
You see, these boys ore McKendreons too, but they don't have to worry about taking more
than their quota of chapel cuts nor getting up for those miserable 7:40's — we have a guy with a
brass horn who takes core of getting the boys u p on time.
For every degree that is handed out when our class marches into the Chapel for the last
time, there is at least another member of that rough and tough "fightin' forty-third" out there some-
where — maybe flying a PBY on coastal patrol, maybe jeeping along the African desert, maybe
holding hands with some WAAC in the service club. His job is not confined to such tasks as
raking leaves, sweeping out the halls over in Old Main, or washing up the pots and pons in
MeKendree's "mess hall" — there's no Clifford Cotes to spur him on to the higher things in life nor
a Liza Jane to haggle with over time sheets.
His job is far from completion; he's counting on our V-7 and ERC boys to carry on with
the work he has already started. How con you beat a bunch of guys who used to sing "My
Gal Sol" out on the football field when the going got a little rough? The same spirit that mode
our McK'ers stand up on their hind legs and bellow for their rights although miserably outclassed
and out numbered is now at work for Uncle Sam. How can we lose?
This class of '43 might well be termed the "War Class." Less than a week after Hitler's
goose-stepping divisions marched unexpectedly into Poland, this class was going through the tedious
ordeal of registering for its first semester in college. Yes, it's been almost four years. We saw
the Finns and the Russians fight, we stood by as Japan plundered and raped innocent China, we
learned of the treachery of the fifth column in Norway, we saw the blitzkreig overwhelm bewildered
France, we sweated through Dunkirk, we withstood the terrific pounding of the Luftwaffe on the tight
little island, our blood boiled at Coventry and later at Lidice, we welcomed the occupation of
Iceland, and we started buying defense stamps. With o personal interest we experienced the first
peace-time draft in the history of our country, we argued pro and con on lend-lease, we approved
Pan-Americanism, we voted for Wendell Wilkie and elected Roosevelt for a third term, we
watched Hitler knife Joe Stalin in the back only to become mired down in Napoleon's foot-
steps — we cussed and raved and ranted over Japanese treachery and the ruthless ossult on Pearl
Harbor. Even Dean Stowell dismissed his class to listen to the Congress declare war. You all
know the rest of the story.
Not so long ago these things were rather far away from us: other things were of more
Importance. If, however, we were to approach our sergeant in the Guadaconal fox hole, he could
tell us far more about Herb Gould's stall system of basketball thon he could about the weaknesses
of the Maglnot Line. Do you think those guys bull about the Italian navy, or do they talk about the
good old days back on the hiill when broads were broads and men were not 4-F? So before we
forget about this forty-third let's go back to do a little reminiscing — because after all, isn't one
of the four freedoms the right to hold bull sessions whenever one pleases.
Do you remember that siege of registration we went through — tests, orientation, inter-
views, the Y-mixer, the President's reception, and the free show, down at the Alamo — "Good Bye,
Mr. Chips," If we recall correctly. It was all so confusing, but we didn't mind. We were new
at this game, and eoger to learn. And do you remember our election of bashful Jungle Jim Agles
as our president and how they'd always kidnap him when we were going to have a meeting? And
what about that miserably rainy Monday night we gathered in that tiny garage right off Lebanon's
great white way and went out to the overhead to hold what was conceded to be the least success-
ful Freshman party in the history of the school? We'll never forget how Worry Wart Ashby, our
custodian of the Bear, got three rides that night because he beat the upperclassmen back to school
every time they took him out. And do you remember Ray Brouer, our ex-bartender, Johnnie Rawlin-
son. Mace Petty, Big Don Mohan, Moggie hHursey, "that pleasing personality," and all the rest of our
colorful greenies. htow proud we were of those green cops we paid o buck for, and we tipped them
too, more diligently than has any class that has followed us. And soy, what about that Chapel pro-
gram we presented starring "Wang de Gong" Griffin and "Meece" (half moose — half mouse) Tim-
mons, Timmons and Braeutlgam and the motorcycles they later traded for Gl aircraft, the winter
it got so cold we had to wear pajamos under our slacks, and the death of the social fraternities?
And didn't we hold the first celebration of Sadie HIawkins Week? Of course, things we will not soon
forget were Al Johnpeter and his Mudcats, the Bearcat Special Bus, the first celebration of the
Happy Founders' Day, our siege of rots, and not two-legged ones either, the way Helen Mitchell
used to faint In class and how we'd cover her up and just go on as though nothing had happened
— the thrill of living beneath the canopy of green that first spring of ours on the beautiful Mc-
Kendree campus. We were a fresh bunch, but McKendree soon felt our presence — without Cor-
zine, Griffin, Hortin, the Timmons boys. Petty, Hartman, Braeutigom, and the rest of our athletes
the Review's sports page might just as well hove been edged In black; we won the Dorris Oratori-
cal contest that first year; and we soon took over positions of leodership in all of the organizations
And then came our second year with Paul Griffin as our president. We recall the way
"My Gal Sol" helped us lick Mission House end LaSolle-Peru and how Sol became the sweet-
heart of the campus, the hayride our class sponsored, how Prof. Hardy and the boys used to go
out for on afternoon of Nub Nub, the game in which Don Hortmon lost fourteen pounds and still
weighed more than two-hundred, the new McKendree Bookstore now carrying the largest stock in
history, those Mondoy mornings after glee club trips, the night Oakland City scored I I I points
ogainst the "hungry five," the Bowler-Bowler-Bowier romance, Philo, Plato, and Clio's invasion of
Hotel Melbourne in St. Louis for a formal banquet, Louis Winterrowd's great struggle to put on
weight, those dormitory hair-cuts we used to get for fifteen cents with a worn-out shirt thrown in,
and the many other things that make college life so interesting.
With Griffin once again at the helm we literally took over the campus our Junior year —
the Seniors were too busy planting trees and picking out graduation announcements. More of the
members of our class were literary society members than was true of any of the other classes in
school and we held important positions in these organizations, too. We hod several fingers, and
in some cases even a thumb, in every pie that formed the McKendree activity picture. We
weren't too busy leading the glee clubs and quartettes, captaining the basketball team, editing the
Review, compiling the annual, serving on the Focuolty-Student council, and doing the million and
one things that send one's grades to the depths — we weren't too busy to hove fun. Do you remem-
ber how we used to get a gong up and go downtown for a PC, and how we used to cut Religion
on Wednesday mornings so we could listen to the new selections, on the "vie" down at the grill,
that night Philo served cider and vitamin pills for open session? Thot was the year Salmon's
Freshmen pulled a fast one by holding their party in the middle of the night. It was our lost
season of football — we had sixteen on the team and that included the coach, Mrs. Scholl, the
woter-boy, and Frank Harris. The team was kicked around all yeor but did plenty of kicking in
return. And what about that Screwy Whiskey Shoots lingo. Gay and Debbon forced Into the
McKendrean's venacular. After December 7th we found McKendreons one-by-one dropping out of
school or enlisting, in various reserve corps. The Forty-third answered with Timmons, Record, and
Broeutlgam to the Naval Air Corps, Myres and Curtis to the Army Air Force, and Hortin, Hartmon,
Loy and Agles to the Naval Reserve. In addition, we already hod men serving from Australia to
Cairo, from Icelond to Shongrl-Lo.
Even by stretching our imagination, this past year could hardly be compared with Custer's
lost stand, but things hove been different what v/ith V-moil, rotioning — and no Tepatti. We mode
it through, however, and with the proverbial flying colors, too. Paul Baker and Cyril Curtis were
elected as presidents of the McKendree Association. Our class officers were Jim Agles, Presi-
dent; Ross Hortin, Vice-President; Frankie Robinson, Secretory-Treasurer; with Jim Loy, a third-
termer capably filling the post of Sergeont-at-orms. Ethel Dewhirst was our lovely Queen of the
May. Our Homecoming was still a gay affair and the Forty-third led the way In the fashion
parade the day before.
Our little bull session has been sketchy to soy the least. We might toss orchids to Curtis and
Chadwell on their scholarship, to LaVerne for her sincerity, to Winterrowd for his basketball
record, to Fronkie for her spirit, to Griffin for being an all-around good guy, to Myres for his nose
— but this could go on indefinitely. We lost ogood friend ond another "good guy" In Dr. Dolley.
Of course, we weren't always a bunch of angels. hHow about that fight we had In the Chapel
when footlights were popping like a machine gun, or that sign we out up on the girls' dorm that
night, or the time spontoneous combustion burst forth in the Review office, those victory hair-cuts
the Freshmen asked us to give them, the night the football team was locked out of the dining hall,
the formation of the ITK's — the Intelligence, Temperance, the Kindness boys, or the time Coach
Gould ordered us to get the referee on the next play, or the way we used to steal over to classes
after cutting a 7:40 or 8:35 for fear we would meet the teacher face to face, or the ofternons we
used to hitch over to St. Louis to visit the legitmate theatre, or all those songs we used to sing
on football trips, how we used to go out for those early morning swims out at the Country Club,
or the night we serenaded the girls from atop the dining hall, the day Braeutlgam dive-bombed
the Chapel, our first good-night kiss beneath those bright lights over at Clark Hall, and all the
time we were yelling for a dim-out, and those many dates that were kept over at the library and
not downtown or out beneath the moon because of study hours. Undoubtedly, we put our shore
of grey hairs in Dr. Yost's head!
The Fighting Forty-third has been a great class — few could boast of having so many mem-
bers carrying on extra-curricular activities in so many parts of the world. She has been important to
McKendree because she is McKendree herself — a group of hearty youngsters fighting on against
tremendous odds, fighting for their very existence, but ever confident of the victory in sight — and
always cheered on by their "Comrades in Arms."

A GAY SPRING DAY
FOR OUR QUEEN OF THE MAY
We hove but to recall "Dewey's" smile and
cheerful words, and we hove found an appropriate
embodiment for this verse.
True worth is in being, not seeming, —
In doing, each day that goes by.
Some little good — not in dreaming
Of great things to do by and by.
— Alice Corey.
Our Queen was elected from the Senior class of
1943 to reign as royalty at the annual May Day
celebration. May 14.
In the morning the Seniors presented a program
in the Chape!, representative of the talent and
ability of their group. Following the Class Day
program they were accorded the usual Senior
privilege of a "free day".
Early in the afternoon, the student body as-
sembled on the campus for the Senior Tree dedica-
tion and the presentation of the Senior gift.
Later in the afternoon, the Queen, Ethel
Dewhirst, together with her train, wended her way
to the throne on the front campus where the Queen
was crowned by her Maid of Honor, Frances
Then followed special entertainment for the
Queen and her following, together with the assem-
bled spectators. This consisted of the traditional
winding of the Maypole, and morris dances by
girls of the various classes. A one-act play, a
fontosy, by Rachel Field entitled "The Londonderry
Air," was then enacted by a cost of four students.
At six o'clock the faculty and students attended
the Senior dinner in Pearson's Hall.
May Day on McKendree's campus is a day for

RESPONSE Dr. Yost
Who's Who Among Students In American Universities,
and Colleges, is a publication sponsored by six hundred
colleges and universities to give national recognition to
graduates of unusual potentialities for leadership.
LaVerne's unflinching adherence to the highest Ideals of
Christianity is the quality which above all, gives her a
place of leadership at McKendree. in a day when moral
standards are often shifty, she has remained steadfast.
PAUL M. GRIFFIN
When, lost year, "Wang" was hurt In an explosion in
the Chemistry lab, then did we realize how much he is
loved by everyone. We tried to take stock on his value,
and we decided that above good scholarship, and above
good sportsmanship, the fact that each of us felt him to
be our special friend meant that he is about as companion-
able as a person can be.
During the two years that Paul has been among us he
has assumed a very natural position of influence, because
he was more widely read and more experienced than many
students who are just out of high school. Any campus
would be lucky to have such a man as Paul, and his record
on McKendree campus gives evidence that we know his
Cyril Curtis was on almost letter perfect student who
literally did everything right, and that, in anybody's esti-
mation, might have made him into a bore, but instead, it
makes him Into one of the finest fellows who has ever gone
to school on our Old Hill. Now he Is working for Uncle
Sam, and we know that McKendree can send no finer man
to the army.
McKendree expects big things of "Chad," for here on
the campus, he has proved that brains and leadership go
hand in hand. His formula seems to be to tackle big jobs
that demand all sorts of Initiative, and then admit of no
fizzle, but simply make a success.
