RUSSELL GROW VB., A.M., Ph.D. President Dr. Russell Grow receives a gavel made from a century-old window sill of historic Old Main. Our (president 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 college. 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. mi Ishe <£>ea n 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. LEWIS B. VANWINKLE A.B., B.D., M.A. Dean and Registrar  T OLIVER H. KLEINSCHMIDT Conservatory diploma, A.A.G.O.

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.

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. djs*fc^*r S%r  (Basketball 1950-1951 SCORES McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, McKendree, 96; Sanford-Brown, 45. 62; Missouri Baptist, 57. 63; Chillicothe, 52. 88; Stowe Teachers, 45. 72; Oakland City, 83. 89; Greenville, 65. 93; M. & A.

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 Hugh Redden. 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 Rose Poly. 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 (See Page 60)  Top row: Mgrs. Jim Redden, Herman Edwards, Ron Herrin, Rodney Richards Bottom row: Rill Keck, Burton Gedney, Clifford Maddox, John Gray.

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 season. 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. Top row: Coach Hugh F.

ISrack 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.
