the institution <isscTted itscll above the importance of the individuah m

of hope of benefiting mankind McKendree C^oHeoe has affirmed its : 
being the cuhural leader of Southern Illinois.

dedication 



Because all wads lead to, and all tliinking persons arc turning toward 
McKendrcc College, we attempt to a:^sign due respect to those who luue given 
ol themscKes so heely that this institution may thrixc. In doing so we realize 
lull) the dilficulty in attempting to single out any one person. 

There is one, however, who seems to epitomize the \'ery essence ol decency, 
progressiveness, scholarliness, and above all amiability; a man who has proved 
to be a friend and counselor rather than merely an administrator. He has placed 
his office and his abilities at the disposal of those who might need help; his 
education and his understanding have guided many students. 

To this man, this line personality, to Dean Le\yis B. \'an\Vinkle, the 1950 
iMcKendrean Staff proudly, vet humbly, dedicates this book.

PreHaeni 



Althougli he lias been witli us onlv one 
semester, V)x. CJrow has alreacK won the 
admiration and respect ot hoth the faculty 
and students here at McKendreee. Since 
his arri\al at Christmas, Dr. CJrow has shown 
a keen interest in the school and has worked 
hard toward its upbuildint;. 

With such a competent and able man at 
her head, McKcndree can look Forward v\'ith 
conlidence to a future e\en more glorious 
than her rich traditional past. His positive 
outlook on lile and his fine (.jualities of 
leadership cause us to bcliexc that McKcndree 
will "Cirow with Crow."

left us during the first semester to take up 
his new duties as Chancellor of Nebraska

of him, and will always remember him as

in I lomcxoniing by gi\'ing a Formal piogram. The 
promise of the talent displayed in that program has 
yielded satisfying results and has contributed much 
to the success of McKcndree these years. After such 
a glorious start, we were sure that we must be the 
outstanding class of the Century. 

As sophomores we \\ere forging steadily ahead. 
We wondered why the Freshmen c\'er thought thev 
might get awj^y with their picnic. We made short 
work of their plans— after long searching— with a 
bonfire and wiener-roast in the parking lot. That 
was the year "Bo Bracy" came to the hobo convention 
appropriately dressed in a T-shirt and bow-tie under 
his neat black dress suit. That year our candidate, 
Ella Jones, was elected Homecoming Queen. Sadie 
Hawkins Day was quite an affair and the race was 
full of excitement. Several poor males were caught 
in spite of the fact that there was a great deal of 
confusion involved, not the least of which was 
tree-sitting! The year flew by quickly. So many things 
were happening: our basketball season, stunt show. 
May Day, Commencement! 

We came back as Juniors feeling that we had 
learned a lot but realizing that there was so much 
we yet lacked. It was a good year. We saw our football 
team score on the field. We won the first game in 
years. Quite a celebration followed this victory over 
Chillicothe v\'hich gave our spirits a great lift. Our 
basketball team really forged ahead with victories 
galore and a very marked improvement over previous 
years. The days passed with the usual round of 
classes, labs, tests and exams. We gave the Senior 
class a banquet. At the end of the year, with great 



jnv and a little bit (

is tlu' most unusual. Our 



cl.iss is \xr\ proud ot the man\- outstanding football 
plaxois who, we feel sure, made this season the 
most successful in years. We won three of our games. 
I lomeeoming was just about as perfect as we could 
isk: Hobo Day, the beautiful coronation, freshman 



program 



)tball \ictory over Chillicothe, 



alumni banquet, and the homecoming play. After 
these fatiguing acti\'ities e\'erybody was ready to settle 
down to routine happenings for a while! Instead, 
some of the most exciting times of the year followed, 
especially nights, as the Carnegie Hall inmates will 
testify. We got painted up several times by Shurtleff, 
not to mention the times Shurtleff got the same from 
us. After many days and nights the whole thing was 
climaxed by an episode that caused thirteen Shurtleff 
men to lose their hair— not from worry but from the 
skillful use of scissors plied by McKendree students 
and the Dean. Following this there came leaf-raking 
day and that memorable board meeting at which 
Dr. Russell Grow was elected to succeed Dr. Bracy 
as our president. We chose as the leaders of our 
class, Darrell Sample, president; Benjamin Anderson,

After three years on the Olc 



wc are proud 



to say that our class is still ad\ancing in the p 
of success and distinction. Although wc are the 
class, our loyalty stands at its peak. The rank 
of seniorship and authority has been justlv earned bv 
our group. 

As we look back to our freshman year, our memories 
are a haze of initiation, green caps, and an unsuccessful 
but \ery enjoyable picnic. We contributed our share 
to the I lomecoming activities by our loyal support 
to our queen candidate and displaying our talents in 
the Formal Freshman Program. Our class showed 
foresight by sponsoring Sadie Hawkins' Week, which 
was very successful. By engaging in all acti\itics our 
freshman class not only felt the influence oi Mc 
Kcndree, but left their mark upon the school. 

As sophomores we viewed life with a highly superior 
attitude that comes from having our freshman year 
behind us. Our most outstanding memor\' is the 1 lome- 
cotning election in which our candidate, I lelen 
O'l lara, was chosen football queen. Not to be forgotten 
is our extensive campaign \A'hieh included the barber- 
shop rendition of "Sweet f lelen O'Hara," and De\\e\ 's 
spectacular bie\'cle ride throu'^h the chapel. The 
friends, the fun and the lell<.\\ship that we had 
shared these first two \ears made us look forward to

Ha\ing been here sueh a sliort time, the sophomore 
elass has done well. W'e ha\e been represented in all 
tields: sports, music, dramatics, and anything that 
came our way. 

The close ol: this school year brings our class to 
a significant milestone along the road to higher 
education; we have reached the half-way mark. Al- 
though many changes have taken place amonw 
our ranks, we ha\'e come to realize how quickly two 
years can pass. Many friendships formed here on the 
Old ffill may well prove to be lifelong. 

Our first year proved to be a memorable one. We 
wore our green caps and bowed respectfully to upper- 
classmen, but secretly felt exalted because of our 
picnic and its great climax— the rinoino of the chapel 
bell. 

Our class decided to "shine" in sports this vcar. 
Many of our fellows worked long and hard playing 
football and basketball, and participating in track 
e\ents. Bill Chaney was selected for a position on the 
Pioneer All-Conference second football team, giving 
honor to the sophomores. Other sophomore football 
boys were Ron Herrin, Cloyce Burns, Harold "Mouse" 
Davis, Marino Garcia, Art Hartman, Jack Frost, 
I larold Zeeb, and Eddie Biznek. 

McKendree had a wonderful basketball season, and 
the sophomore class was represented by Ron Herrin,

Next in line lor the sophomores to "shine" in was 



music. When the chorus presented "The Messiah," 
the sophomore class contributed tour vocal soloists: 
Lester Dewhirst, tenor; Joy Luman, soprano; Ruth 
/Klthoff, soprano; and Daphenc Coston, contralto. June 
Ilender was the \'iolin soloist.

to these talented hohos, we had Pat Hnsley, Mariaem

attending the meeting. 

Our Homecoming float was an original horse-drawn 
wagon, with "An Old Fashioned Hayride." 1 he 
students were dressed as old fashioned people on a 
hayride. 

Many sophomores gained honors during the war

We might stop to recognize the niar\elous wit of 
a humorous sophomore, Elsie Crisp. Whenever sly 
humor or wit is needed, Elsie is the one to see. Her 
current events at the Clio open session won't be 
torgotten for a long time. Her sly comment about her 
ne.xt-door neighbors going crazy about the Old South 
— Totten and Chicken, that is, is just one of the man\ 
that gal knoxxs! 

A boucjuet could be gi\en here to the cheer-leader

the spirit high and to cheer the team on to \ ictorx

Rcgistratiiin last tall saw a new crop of freshmen 
enrolling at old McKendree. From that group of 
green youngsters will emerge, in a tew years, the 
Finished product of McKendree's training— tlie class 
of '53. 

Now approaching the end of our first year at 
McKendree, we freshmen feel we are a part of the 
school, but still fresh in our memories are the days 
of our early life here. We remember the bewildering 
experience of our first registration, with the many 
lorms to fill out, schedules to plan, and books to 
buy. We remember the various extracurricular activities 
enumerated and explained during the orientation 
period. And, too, we remember freshman initiation. 
I here was the unhappy experience of freshman party 
night, with the games of hide and seek and the 
dashes through the rain. There was the charming 
spectacle presented to all by the freshman girls during 
freshman week, the chance we all had to display 
our talents at "odd" jobs, and the generous assistance 
of the upper classmen in helping us to develop our 
leg muscles. Ralph Haves was undisputed champion 
walker, but I am sure no one claims to have made 
more beds than Wayne Waggoner. 

Still under the burden of initiation, we freshmen 
\\ere put to work to help make the 1949 Homecoming

celebration a success. Our biggest contribution to the 
I lomeconiing aftairs was the Freshman Formal Pro- 
gram, in which the varied talents of our class were 
clis|ila\ ccl to line advantage under the capable guidance 
ol our class president, ^r,a\ Porter. The elTorts ol 



all perlorniers were richK' repaid, as were those oF 
the campaigners ("She swims in ponds") because our 
own lovely candidate, Martha Rieman, was crowncil

\'ictory enabled us to really ha\'e a "beanie roast." 
Our feeling of a job well done continued through 
the concluding event of the Homecoming weekend, 
the plav Our Tcnvu. With loan Hall and h'an Lewis 




in leading roles, and other freshmen contributing 
hea\'il\- to the success of Our town, the class of '53 
felt great satisfaction in the production of this out-

Z)ke McKendree Story. 49-50 



Dear Boss, 

/\nytimc \uii ha\c any more stories you want clone like this one, let me know. You'll 
ha\e a willing \olunteer. Don't know when I've had so much lun. Here's what happened: 

<^epteiflber it all started on Labor Day. 1 hat's when the new students started 
arri\ing. The older ones eame in later in the week. E\erybodv v\'as busy getting settled 
that first week, besides getting aequainted. 

It didn't take long to find out who the upperelassmen were, lor the\ had a gleam in 
th.ir eyes as they talked about freshman initiation that would come up sooner or later. 
Talk about people sweating, those freshmen thought they were really in for it. When 
initiation came, with green beanies and special rules for the freshies, it wasn't as bad as 
they'd expected. Honest, boss, I don't know when I've seen a lunnier sight than when 
those freshmen women from Clark Hall were initiated. Hair-dos, so-called hats, and 
stunts out of this world. What a mess they were! Both the boys and the girls were taken 
on midnight strolls far-far out in the country— a so-called "introductory" tour. 

X^'hile this was going on, studies were commencing, and the chief guessing game was 
trying to name the new president. The older students hated to .see Dr. Bracy lea\e. 
About this time also some anonymous donor ga\e the college S25,000 for aiding 
theological students attending McKendree. 

Coach Barclay was working his football squad into shape, and the moans current on 
the campus came from Carnegie Hall where men wished thev had kept in shape during 
the vacation. The Bearcats lost their opener to Rose Polv 14-6. but it \\.:s a close game. 

As the year was getting started. Religious Emphasis Week was obscr\ed on the campus, 
with Re\'. Hoo\'er Rupert as speaker. 

L/Ctober l thought things would slow up on the campus come October. Was I 
surprised! First of all they had a quartet in here that rocked the place v^ith a special 
version of "Li'l Liza Jane." Then football fever really swept the place. There were 
victories and losses, and many sleepless nights after some Illinois college Bluj Boys tried 
to whitewash the place. The freshmen cleaned it up, naturally. 

Then came all the preparation for homecoming. And what a homecoming! Ihe whole 
place was decked out in colorful decorations, with a big parade before the football game 
on Saturday afternoon. Hobo Day had been good, the freshmen had crowned their 
queen in lavish ceremony, and the parade attracted the whole town's attention. What 
left c^■ervone cheering was the Bearcat victory o\'er Chillicothe on the gridiron. A bain|uet 
and the presentation of "Our Town" to a packed house ended a big weekend. 

Shurtleff was ne.xt up on the Bearcat schedule, and they were trying to upset the 
Bearcat homecoming with night raiders. First one guy by the name of Wayne was caught 
and shaved, after McKendree returned the favor of paint. Then, 13 others were captured 
and shaved before a student assembly at 4 a.m. in the gymnasium. What a time! It got 
Shurtleff so riled up thev beat McK 26-13 in a fighting comeback. 

The freshmen hung up their beanies after the Chillicothe victorv. 1 he\' didn't succeed 
in having their party, though. Rain caused one dela\, with the upperelassmen breaking 
up the partv on the Bagg farm the ne.xt night. You ne\er saw people run around like 
these jieople did tr\'ing to find the partv. 

J^OVemuer Sadie Hawkins Day and Leaf Raking Dav saw students stretching 
some new muscles. Rumors and guessing were ended when the boaril met and named 
Dr. Russell Grow as president of McKendree. Six people were seen to reach the bursting 
point as their pride swelled on being named to Who's Who. 

The Bearcats brought down the curtain on the football season with a 13-to-7 \ictorv 
(ner Eureka for the first Pioneer conference victory of any sort in three vears for Mc- 
K"ndree. They talked for weeks here about two touchdowns, each 50 yards, on three 
plavs. Those boys sang like a cage of canaries on the wav home that night. 

Coach Bill Mauzv trotted his basketball squad out on the coint f\>r the first time on 
November 28, and started nut a whiz-bang season with a lot of talent, including man\' 
freshmen. 



58 



oU€C€tflber a few people found time to study here, while others reliearsed and 
presented the "Messiah" as the eollege's annual yuletide choral presentation. The Bearcats 
were still winning games as Christmas \acation came around, a chance for exervone to 
take five and start breathing again. 

J-CiniKll'^ 1 his is one of those strange places, boss, where people were realK- 
glad to get back from vacation. '1 hey said they missed the place. Some came back with 
resolutions to start studying this year, but that passed fast, especially after the second 
semester got started and the verdict from first semester was forgotten. 

There was a new family in the little White House, known as The Ste\'enson I louse, 
and the president's office was again occupied. An expansive night program was started 
on the campus, and for awhile it looked as if Scott Air Base were taking over. 

The Bearcats hit a weak spell at the turn of semesters, but came back to the \ ictor\ 
path by beating Principia in a special benefit game. On January 7 at Blackburn, a record 
fell as McKendree won 87-66, a new all-time game high at McK. 

Jeoruar^ The students were exposed to a bit of culture as Clerard Willem Van 
Loon \isited the campus. Gifts of slightly more than S 10,000 were announced, and campus 
impro\ements were speeded up. 

Basketball kept the limelight as the team racked up tuo Pioneer \ ictories. Bobbv 1 cc 
had set a new scoring mark of 36 points, only to have another Mt. Vernonitc, |im Burnett, 
come along just 12 days later and top it at 37. Coach Mauz\' resigned to take ad\'antage 
of a wonderful opportunity M'ith the military government in Germany. Behind him, he 
and the Bearcats left a new set of records, for they'd broken almost every one on the books. 

Fourteen games were won and seven lost for the best season since 1930-31. The team's 
average per game was 68 points— another high. Bobby Lee amassed 418 points for a new 
indi\idual season total. 

.AVdrCn John VV. Vandercook led a parade of celebrities at the second Communica- 
tions U'orkshop, as high school students and teachers took over the place for a day. 

With basketball out of the way, track hit the spotlight again, as McKendreans looked 
forward to another successful season. 

The chorus bundled up and left the campus on a tour of Illinois, Indiana, and Wis 
consin. Easter vacation followed right on the heels of this, and nobod\' was ,i bit sorry 
either. 

CPrpi'Ll The McKendrean Stunt Show left them lying in the aisles after the Easter 
\acation was oxer. Hidden talent was unco\ered all o\ er the campus for this show. 

One of the big e\'ents of the year came when Dr. Grow was formally inaugurated 
amidst colorful settings as the eollege's twenty-fourth president. With spring, there came 
a new romantic movement on the campus, and hearts beat just a little faster as the days 
became warmer. 

.AVay. This final month was a busy one, but then, what one wasn't? There was 
the exer-popular May Fete, the Spring concert, music recitals, and preparation for the 
closing events of the year. The students crammed as e.xams neared, but fouml time to 
participate in oratorical contests. The seniors were becoming philosophical arul tender as 
baccalaureate, the alumni dinner, and commencement drew near. I found that I hated 
to see the end come too, for something about the place seems to ha\c 'gotten into m\ 
veins in my stay here. 

Ground was broken at commencement for the new gvmnasium-aiulirnrium. the first 
new building on the campus since the library was built in 1919. 

The college celebrated the Centenial of Old Main in connection with commencement, 
so the place was quite a bee-hive of activity as I closed up shop and packed my duds. 
Be seeing you soon, boss!
