For more than one hundred seventeen years McKendree College 
has stood on the "Old Hill" as a living symbol of Christian education, 
doing its utmost to train young men and women to be of greatest 
service to God and their fellowmen. Each spring sees another class 
sent forth with a liberal arts education to be of service in the field 
to which they are best suited. 

But a liberal arts education is not all work. McKendree also 
teaches brotherhood — not in classes, but through living together like 
brothers, all working together for the same cause, and each gener- 
ously sharing his personality with others about him. The leadership 
and participation in extra-curricular activities enables all young men 
and women to be of most service to their community, and the "fam- 
ily" atmosphere on the campus inspires them to live peacefully and 
happily with their families and friends as they go through life in 
true McKendree fashion.

GUTEKUNSTS 



For the past three years, Mr. and Mrs. Gutekunst have diligently 
striven to keep McKendree going forward in war, as in peace. They 
are always on hand when something needs to be done, and are always 
deeply interested in cooperating with the students in anything they 
undertake. It has been their constant supervision and cooperation 
that has made possible the sending of Reviews to all McKendree 
servicemen, both at home and abroad. Without their support there 
would have been no annual. 

It is to these two fine Christian leaders, that we dedicate our 
1945 McKendrean.

poses: to study classic and contemporary literature, and 
to give opportunity for self-expression through writing.

PLATONIAN LITERARY SOCIETY 

P-L-A-T-0 — the loudest yell heard every Monday eve- 
ning. » 

This year, Plato started with ten , members — a bit low 
in quantity, but extremely high in quality. 

Plato has been through the thick and thin of things 
during the past year. Seemingly, all bad things turn out 
humorous. We won't forget those urchins from the girls' 
dormitory who spoiled the refreshments at Plato's open 
session. Excitement and words flowed freely. 

The members of Plato are proud of its past, and hope- 
ful of its future 

PHILOSOPHIAN LITERARY SOCIETY 



PHILOSOPHIAN LITERARY SOCIETY 

Philo started its 107th year with four members but it 
had taken in five new members before Thanksgiving 
Philo met every Monday at 12:10 P. M. It has twenty- 
eight members in the service of their country. There is 
an oratorical contest in Philo every year. 

The officers of Philo are: president, Ira Thetford; vice- 
president, Cyril Jackson; fjrst critic, A. J. Shields; second 
critic, Charles Ellis; $ergeant-at-arms, Cyril Jackson; re- 
cording secretary, Frederick Brink; corresponding secretary,

of the students and faculty alike are presented to the 
Council for discussion and action, hence to the faculty 
and student body to be passed upon or rejected

appointed by President Yost and six students elected from 
the student body, one representing the Lebanonites, one 
the commuters, and one from each dormitory.

Each Monday evening the halls of the Chapel resound 
with the shout, C-L-I-0-, Clio, as the girls of McKendree 
come together for another regular literary society meet- 
ing. Some sessions are serious and some are silly, but this 
one hour each week' is looked forward to by every mem- 
ber of the Clinonian Literary Society. 

Presidents: Virginia Phillips, Ruth Mary Koerbcr, Edna 
Kampmeyer, and Shirley Bergman.

Choir is made up of mixed voices and the group has 
presented special numbers for our chapel services. 

With the aid of the director these groups have main- 
tained a high standard of work and with the assistance 
of the YWCA and the YMCA was very successful in pre- 
senting the Christmas program.

an international understanding and good will among the 
students of allied countries. Letters of French and Span- 
ish were received as well as English

After being temporarily discontinued, the "M" Club 
was reorganized last fall. Inasmuch as the membership is 
quite low, a greater number in the near future is expected. 

Although the "M" Club has not been too active during 
the past year, it sponsored, quite proudly, the election of 
the Home-coming Queen. 

The members of the "M" Club are proud of that or- 
ganization, for it represents the "Spirit of Athletics" on 
the campus Membership provides a challenge for all 
participants of sports as a goal worthy of attainment.

Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges is a publica- 
tion of a standard directory and index of information sponsored by six hundred 
colleges and universities. Its purpose is to give national recognition to students of 
unusual abilities. Below are listed six McKendree seniors who will appear in the 
1944-45 edition. 



EDNA KAMPMEYER 

Edna possesses a rare sense of responsibility and she 
has made a good scholastic record at McKendree. Her 
cooperative and friendly spirit will be greatly missed on 
the "Old Hill." 



FRANK SNYDER 

We admire Frank, one of our older students, for re- 
turning to school to graduate while holding a full-time 
position His ability in chemistry and mathematics i? 
outstanding 



RUTH KOERBER 

The quick wit and cheerful disposition of our Mc- 
Kendrean editor combine to make her a capable leader. 
She has proved herself to be a good student and depend- 
able office assistant. 



WILLIAM STALLINGS 

The high scholastic record and fine leadership shown 
by Bill during his years on the "Old Hill" make the rest 
of us proud to call him a McKendrean 



SHIRLEY BERGMAN 

Shirley's quick smile and pleasing personality have won 
many friends for her at McKendree She has been an ex- 
cellent student and an outstanding leader during her three 
years on the campus 



NORMAN BAKER 

Norman's cheerful smile and keen sense of humor make 
him a welcome addition to the McKendree family

McKENDREAN-REVIEW STAFF 

Throughout the year the Review and McKendrean staff 
have functioned in various ways. Not only did this staff 
publish the bi-weekly paper and this annual, but it spon- 
sored a fall leaf-raking and the high school day in the 
spring. 

Just as other groups, the staff operated under war-time 
difficulties. Much "midnight oil" was burned to complete 
copy for deadlines Many afternoons were used for trips 
to St. Louis to arrange for printing and engraving 

After a year of presenting the current happenings on 
our campus, we offer this book as the culmination of our 
activities. The memories embodied in these pages will 
long serve to remind us of the "Old Hill" and those with 
whom we worked and played in '44-'45.

BASKETBALL LETTERM EN 




Laurel Berger 

I Forward I — Berger had the best free 
throw average on the team Laurie was 
fastest on the first five, and perhaps the 
best "all around" player. He certainly 
snagged more than one rebound. Berger 
will be here next year to add his much- 
needed strength to the team 



Ira Thetford 

Captain (Guard) — "Tiny," a two-year 
letterman, could always be depended up- 
on to handle the ball well. He was calm 
and cool-headed on the floor, and was 
always under the basket for rebounds. 



Gleason Lagow 

(Forward) — Joe, small, but mighty, proved 
to be one of the Bearcats' best subs He 
is one of the cleverest ball handlers on 
the team Joe will be here next year to 
put the old "zip" on the ball. 



Frank Harris 

(Guard) — Frank did more than his share 
of rebounding. Many an opposing player 
will verify that Harris handled the ball 
well, and could be depended upon to 
bring it across the line. He should be in 
there fighting next year 



Wesley Srelzriede 

"Wes" could always be counted upon to 
put his best in a game He always ap- 
peared calm and handled the ball well 
He certainly snagged a great many re- 
bounds and more than one of his well- 
placed shots helped to boost the score 



Don Broadway 

(Forward) — Don was death on side shots 
He added many a point to the team's 
score. His ball handling was excellent, 
and if was not uncommon to see him 
"break-through" and "loop" another in 
for the Bearcats. 



Arthur Kleinschmidr 

(Center) — Art, a second year letterman, 
the tallest on the team, used his height 
to great advantage His rebounding 
ability was of great value to the team. 
He was one of the leading scorers, and 
was strictly a team man He will be the 
main cog in the Bearcats' machine next 
year. 



Louis Purcell 

Although Purcell was a member of the 
Bearcats only in the early part of the 
season, he added many points to the 
score Always under the basket for re- 
bounds, and couid be depended upon to 
handle the ball well. He was calm at all 
times.

(Continued) 



Fred Brink 

(Forward) — An excellent substitute, Fred, 
one of the fastest players on the floor, 
could be counted upon to put plenty of 
the "old drive" in the game Brink 
should be an important cog in the Bear- 
cat line-up next year.

CHRISTMAS AT HOME 



On the 13th of December the "College Play- 
ers" presented the one-act comedy, "Christmas 
at Home," in the Eisenmayer gymnasium. The 
plot revolves around the Burgess family the day 
before Christmas, preparing to spend their 
Christmas day without their son, Johnny, who is 
working in Chicago, and Grandpa, who had died 
the preceding summer. The typical family re- 
actions are found: sixteen-year-old Julie falling 
in love for the first time; eighteen-year-old 
Emily receiving a proposal, and the twelve-year- 
old Janet discovering the real meaning or 
Christmas. The climax comes with the arrival 
of Johnny, who has been given the day off to 
spend Christmas at home. The play was directed 
by the Reverend F. C. Stelzriede.

McKendree's May Queen for 1945 was Ruth Mary Koerber of Arlington Heights, 
Illinois. Along with being May Queen, she held the position of editor of the 
McKendrean. 

"Curb," who is a graduate of the class of '45, has taken part in many of the 
campus activities. Cooperation and cheerfulness are two of her attributes that rank 
her as a popular student on the "Old Hill." 



Ruth was crowned during the May Fete by her Maid of Honor, Shirley Bergman 



HOME-COMI NG QUEEN 



"From freshman to senior, brunette to blonde, beauty to beauty, youth to 
youth, I present to you the Home-coming Queen, Ruth Cooper." Thus, as Ruth was 
handed the bouquet of roses, she was proclaimed the Home-coming Queen of 1944. 

"Coopie" seems to be following in the footsteps of her big sister, Dolores, who 
was crowned queen in 1940. She is one of our Fine Arts students majoring in Voice. 

Ruth has been active in extra-curricular activities.

CLASS HISTORIES 

THE CLASS OF '45 

The thirty-six members of our class who approached McKendree campus on 
September 7, 1942, were a distinguished looking group. Each was an individual in 
himself, and each had a different idea about college life. 

We were all eager for a college education combined with a little fun to make 
our studying more interesting. We ate regularly at meals and traveled the PC. 
Trail to town for our irregular meals. Our class is the last one to remember the 
old trail. It seems a pity, for it was such a short cut, especially when one was 
sipping a coke at Doc's when the bell rang for the next class. 

The hayride was quite an event. Everyone wore old clothes and stuffed their 
pockets with three or four hot dogs. The "Y" Mixer proved to be quite a success, 
although there were several who had sore arms the next day because they shook too 
many hands. Then we had the Hallowe'en party in the gym. 

The Conference at Alton was a big event. Everyone seemed to be in a gay 
mood that day. Miss Ridgway had a little difficulty in packing the car, but Clifford 
Brown came to the rescue. 

Now let us turn the pages of our memory book until we reach our Freshman 
Picnic. It seemed we weren't successful in ringing the Chapel Bell, although "Bill" 
Stallings made a good attempt at it when he fell down the fire escape, trying to 
escape from the upperclassmen. On Initiation Night the girls had a little trouble 
too. Several jumped over Behymer's hedge in order to be hidden from the view of 
the upperclassmen who drove by in the college truck. 

You ask about Home-coming? Of course, we were the first freshman class to 
start a tradition. We had the first Formal Freshman Chapel Program. The girls 
wore their lovely formals and the boys wore their best suits. We really tried to 
impress the upperclassmen. The next day, Plato and Phi lo played their last game, 
with a score of 50-33 in favor of Plato. Shirley Bergman was crowned Home-coming 
Queen at the game. Shirley was the first freshman ever to be crowned queen. 

About this time some angels in Clark Hall had a hair-pulling and nail-scratch- 
ing fight. Soda bottles were stacked against dorm doors, chewing gum was thrown 
freely and as a result, a few people changed their place of habitation. 

Miss "D" had her trying moments with our class, but she seemed to keep us 
in hand by a persistent knocking on the steam pipes. 

The war was in its prime while we were freshmen and I'm sure we all realized 
the fact. Our first blackout was an experience to remember. We sat calmly listen- 
ing to the roar of airplane motors overhead while all lights were extinguished. The 
Beechnut Buddies serenaded us with Christmas carols and "My Gal Sal." 

The kitchen force was a very prominent crew. Each was bestowed with a dif- 
ferent talent and each tried to portray his talents on the food. They seemed to 
work well together, for I remember only a few fights. However, when things became 
too wild the pantry was the best place in which to lock them. 

Then came Senior Day, when two boys with tear-stained cheeks and faltering 
steps marched down the aisle and presented the school with two beautiful flags. 
With this memory is linked the memory of the dedication of the service flag, and 
the song, "My Buddy." These were just two sad incidents that have made up our 
war-time education. 

Oh yes, how could we ever forget those summer courses and the way we used 
to slave over those hard subjects with perspiration trickling down our brow? How- 
ever, when Preachers School and Institute came around it was sweat that flowed 
from our brow. It was during summer school that we all witnessed the experience 
with the soldier who was supposed to have been a mental case who escaped from 
Scott Field. A suggestion was made to have the Carnegie Hall boys protect us, but 
the girls decided they could take care of themselves if all windows and doors were 
locked and beds moved to third floor. It was the same summer we had so much 
trouble over the water cooler. 

Our class has been scattered to the four corners of the earth because of the 
war and the accelerated program. There will be only fifteen members wearing caps 
and gowns and receiving their degrees on Commencement Day. 

We have learned a great deal from Old McK. We have learned how to live 
and, most of all, how to appreciate a college degree. 



THE CLASS OF '46 

We registered at McKendree College, as the class of '46, one bright, sunny 
morning in September, 1942 — a very scared group of young people. Yes, we all 
lived in mortal terror until that frightful day of initiation was over. For us, it was 
either a lovely baptism in the beautiful lagoon on McKendree's back campus, or a 
very refreshing, brisk walk 'neath the stars to the college, from some unspecified 
point in Illinois. A few unfortunates suffered both. However, initiation rules did 
not bother us. To be truthful, we were quite proud to don the green caps. Most 
of us actually submitted to initiation quite peacefully. 

Admittedly, a year or two of college provides one with the knack of improving 
on unpromising material, and so, notwithstanding the few authentic scrimmages 
with the gentlemen (and ladies) of the three wiser years, we, of late, find our- 
selves relating to the new and unsuspecting freshmen just how successful we were 
in our vicious and recalcitrant attitude to any and all things related to the upper- 
classmen and initiation. 

Like all war classes, ours is not an exception, for through the weeks, months, 
and even years, many members of the class of '46 heeded the call of war. Today 
they may be found on any far-flung battlefield. Some were claimed by war, and 
sleep the eternal sleep. It is to them that we especially dedicate our undying 
thanks; for them our pride knows no bounds. With us they shall tread the Centen- 
nial path in caps and gowns. 

The class of '46 is a proud class, indeed. We feel quite assured that it will 
provide another strong link in the long chain of McKendree years. 



THE CLASS OF '47 

Though ours is one of the smallest classes to enroll in McK. during this war- 
time period, we have, nevertheless, filled our position in the campus activities. 
Starting with only twenty-five members we proceeded to fit our lives into the col- 
lege program. 

Our picnic was the usual failure, but we en|oyed our rations (three or four 
potato chips and a quarter of a cup-cake are rations, aren't they ? ) free from 
molesting upperclassmen. 

A class of '47 skating party for the school has come to be a tradition. 

Most of our class has taken advantage of the accelerated program offered by 
the school. We leave these two years behind, not forgetting "the dean's" English 
Comp. class, Mode and Pete taking top honors in the "Dorris," midnight snacks, 
and the biology trip to Missouri. Memories of the past make goals for the future. 
We're proud of McK. and hope we can make her proud of us. 



THE CLASS OF '48 

When we, the class of '48, enrolled as freshmen at McKendree College last 
September, we were just as green and scared as the average freshmen. 

With green hats flying, we were chased many miles before dodging the upper- 
classmen during our initiation — a night long to be remembered by us all. 

Our officers for the year were Don Broadway, president; Eunice Hanbaura vice- 
president; and Elizabeth Crisp, secretary-treasurer. 

We are justly proud of our Freshman Basketball Team, for they remained unde- 
feated throughout the entire season. Also, we displayed our talents at the annual 
Formal Freshman Chapel Program. 

We, the Freshman Class, have enjoyed this year on the "Old Hill" and are 
eagerly looking forward to three more years at McKendree.
