Dr. Russell Grow receives a gavel made from a century-old window
sill of historic Old Main.
Dr. Grow assumed his duties as president of McKendree last January 1.
Since then he has been actively representing the school at churches and meetings
throughout Southern Illinois, building up financial and moral support for the
On April 20, 1950, Bishop J. Ralph Magee inaugurated Dr. Grow as the
twenty-fourth president of the 123-year-old institution at an impressive service.
Students have sensed the spirit of accomplishment which surrounds the
campus as an improvement program is carried out, but Dr. Grow hasn't finished
yet. He has plans, and, judging from past experiences, he'll complete them.
Dean VanWinkle has served the school as dean and registrar and also as an
instructor. He has been an invaluable consultant as guidance director also. Yet,
in each capacity he has proved an adept and understanding leader and adviser.
His is a full schedule, as any student may know after having to wait in line
for a brief interview with the much-demanded dean.
Somehow, despite his many pressing duties, the dean can always produce a
friendly smile and call a student by name. Most of the students feel that he is
really their friend, and thev are right.
Dean Lewis B. VanWinkle pauses at the entrance of Old Main.

The evening school of the college
opened at the beginning of the second
semester of 1949 and 1950. When the
college expanded its courses to accom-
modate the personnel at Scott Air Force
Base, it began a new era in adult educa-
tion. Frequently others than the military
men and women of the Base enroll.
One of the foremost promoters of
these classes was Capt. John Bice, who
is stationed at the Base. Through his
efforts there has been a steady increase
in the number of courses offered. He is
oftentimes on the campus checking into
the success of the work.

1950 (jfootball Season
McKENDREE 24. ROSE POLY 14
McKendree's 1950 football team accomplished what to other Bearcat teams had seemed
the impossible. They won an opener. Beating Rose Poly on the ground and in the air. the
Bearcats showed a light, fast, and well-drilled eleven.
McKENDREE 0, LEWIS 20
It was the first meeting of the two schools and Lewis thought the Bearcats to be a
breather. The Bearcats' line-play was superb for they were highly outweighed. The kicking
of Bill Lambeth was outstanding.
McKENDREE 26, MISSOURI BAPTIST 12
Victory was sweet again at the hands of Missouri Baptist. Held to a halftime score of
14 to 6, the Bearcats were assured of a victory when Bob Ward ran 60 yards for a touchdown.
McKENDREE 12, ILLINOIS COLLEGE IS
Stopping a last minute threat, Illinois college defeated McKendree. Bob Ward scored
both touchdowns on short plunges. The game ended on the I. C. four-yard line.
McKENDREE 14, CHILLICOTHE 12
The Bearcats traveled to Missouri for their third victory of the year. The game was won
with less than two minutes to play on a pass from Charles Leckrone to Bob Ward.
McKENDREE 0, SHURTLEFF 12
Shurtleff college put the blues on McKendree's homecoming celebration by winning the
football game. McKendree made 19 first downs to Shurtleff's six. Bob Ward carried the ball
for 13 first downs.
McKENDREE 6. EUREKA 25
Charles Leckrone passed 25 yards to Bob Ward for the only Bearcat touchdown of the
game. Fumbles and a muddy field hampered the Bearcat running attack.
McKENDREE 14, PRINCIPIA 39
Principia defeated the Bearcats to end an undefeated season. The highlight of the game
was Bob Ward's 95-yard punt return. The second touchdown was from Charles Leckrone to
Bob Ward on a pass play.

Coach Hugh F. Redden
McKendree college basketball teams of the future will find it tough sledding
to improve the season's record which the Bearcats of 1950-51 posted this year.
Basketball has been played here at McKendree for a long time and the best
record of any previous season, according to our information, was back in 1919-20
when that Bearcat quintet won 15 and lost 5. That mark doesn't come close to
the 23-5 record produced by this year's squad under the direction of Coach
Another improvement upon last year's record was that of being highly rated
all season long in the N.A.I.B. statistics. Offensively, the Bearcats were ranked
fourth in the nation with a 80.5 average.
The 1950-51 season was highlighted by the impressive home record of 13
wins on 15 starts and, better, still, by winning ten and losing three on the road.
No apologies are needed, however, for losses to Illinois College. Shurtleff, and
The Bearcats set a new scoring record of 2,235 points. Gene Hoyt was the
teams leading scorer with 570 points.
The season opened at home with four impressive victories before dropping
the first defeat to Oakland City. The initial four games might be regarded as

breathers, for in them was demonstrated the form that would later earn- the
basketeers through the most successful basketball year in the history of
With a 4-1 record, the Bearcats played host to Greenville and had no
trouble disposing of them by the score of 89 to 65. Hitting their stride again, the
Bearcats trounced M and A University, 93 to 45. Traveling south to West Frank-
fort to inaugurate the new gymnasium, McKendree met Harris Teachers and
found them no match to the tune of 75 to 52. Again McKendree refused to crack
and took in victories over Stowe Teachers, Eureka, and Rose Poly. With six wins
under their belts, the arrival of Illinois college was being prepared for. Twice
previously, the Blue Boys had handed McKendree the short end of the score
book. Illinois college, hitting over 60 per cent of their field goals, was too strong
for the Bearcats. The score was 77 to 70. This was the second setback of the
Revenge was sweet when the Bearcats met Shurtleff college and by a margin
of ten points bested the team that had defeated Bearcat cage squads consistently
for the last few seasons. The score was 68 to 58. Refusing to crack to any op-
ponent, the Bearcats rolled to six straight victories before dropping a hotly fought
game to Shurtleff.
McKendree then traveled east and dropped Oakland City, who had dealt
the bearcats their first defeat. On the same trip McKendree dropped a 69 to 55
encounter to Rose Poly, who had been defeated once before. Greenville played
a very nice host to the Bearcats, as they were defeated, 94 to 74, which set up
the stage for the Illinois college game.
The Bearcats dropped a heartbreaker to Illinois college, 62 to 60. Leading
all through the game, the Bearcats looked as though they finally were going to
defeat the Blue Boys, but a late rally dropped the Bearcats. Greenville college
was defeated for the second time during the season by the howling Bearcats. In
a slow home game Blackburn college was also defeated, 69 to 58. The Bearcats
skimmed by Eureka by a close score of 72 to 70. On traveling to Principia the
Bearcats closed their most successful season with a victorv.

The 1950 track team proved to be one of the outstanding cinder teams in
McKendree's history. The track team entered five meets with schools in the area.
Of the five, three were won; one was tied; and one was lost. The defeat was suf-
fered at the hands of James Millikin university. Beside the regular meets, some
of the members of the team competed in the Illinois Tech Relays and the Rose
Poly Relays, Harris Relays, and the A.A.U. meet.
The outstanding member of the squad and the best low and high hurdler
in Bearcat history was Edgar "Slick" Schafer, who turned in one sparkling per-
formance after another. He set a new school record in both the low hurdles, 24.,
and the high hurdles, 14.9. He also ran fourth in the National A.A.U. tournament
held in Baltimore, Md. He was high man in the point department with 107, ! 2.
Other consistent point winners were Elvis Rosenberger in the low and high
hurdles, high jump, and broad jump; Cloyce Burns, shot and discus; Harold
Sheets, pole vault; Carl Henn, 440; and Ron Herrin, dashes.
