in behalf of 

McKendree College 









President McCammon was the unanimous 
choice of McKendree's Board of Trustees in a meet- 
ing held May 1, 1919. He comes to us from the 
position of Executive Secretary of the Wesley 
Foundation at the University of Illinois, to which 
he has given six years of earnest and fruitful toil. 
When he accepted the office of President of Mc- 
Kendree College he did so whole-heartedly and 
without any reservations. 

During the few months which he has held the 
office he has succeeded in reviving an interest in 
the college among the ministers and laymen of the 
church, the alumni, former students and a host of 
friends. New courage, new determination, new 
hopes and new inspirations have come to all who 
are intimately connected with the work on College

WE are none the worse, although we are a mixed-up outfit. To begin 
with, and speaking chronologically, the Rawlings twins were Fresh- 
men in the fall of 1914. Laird, Bower and Tucker began their 
collegiate career in 1915. McClure joined us as a Senior, coming from Rollins 
College, Winter Park, Florida. Of the original class of '20 five remain — 
Campie, who takes honors this year; Bennie Hall, Dutch Kraemer, the foot- 
light favorite, and the gigglin' Neuling twins. 

War, famine and pestilence have played havoc with our ranks. Once 
we were mighty in numbers ; new we boast only the might of quality. Some 
now occupy the graves of heroes ; others offered themselves for the same 
sacrifice; still others have elected to complete their college course elsewhere. 
But we. the pious remnant, still feel that should our mantle of dignity and 
knowledge fall upon the struggling Juniors, they need have no fear in assum- 
ing the responsibilities that the coming year holds for them. 

We are deeply appreciative of the faithful and untiring efforts of the 
faculty to make less rocky our path to knowledge. We thank the kind 
friends who have made our sojourn on this historic campus pleasant. We 
are not prone to take ourselves too seriously, but it is our sincere hope that 
when we are gone the old institution, whose burdens we have borne for so 
many years, will not fall into utter ruin.

From the Diary of a Junior of '21 

JUNE 15, 1928 — Commencement Day of the one hundredth year of our 
McKendree. The clock says it will soon be the sixteenth, but to let 
this day pass without recording it is unthinkable. 

We turned out in a body today — we of '21. Such a goodly group was 
never seen. The folks of '28 are promising looking, but they did not make 
a one of us feel a whit less important than we did in the fall of even '17. Scat- 
tered in all parts of the world we now know what it really means to come back. 
We can now feel for the ones who used to bore us by taking our perfectly 
good time to tell us what it meant to them to invade the hallowed halls and 

Oh, that class feed tonight! What flavor congeniality of companionship 
may lend to mere food ! Lola did criticize some one of the dishes, though. 
In her case a D.S. education and a maid to do the work seem to have been con- 
ducive to a rather discriminating sense of taste as well as to — shall I say stout- 
ness? Little Ruth H., who teaches D.S., looked a little askance at the same, but 
she never said a word. Ruth always was a sweet little martyr to contentment. 
Talk? Almost everyone let go. But we all listened when our other Ruth, 
home on her first furlough, discussed her work in India with Arthur H., who 
is now a District Superintendent with a most promising outlook. Again we 
listened when Dr. Curtis made known what it means to minister to some four 
thousand souls each week. Dr. Moore and his new serum were quite a sen- 
sation to all of us. Even Lawrence sat up and looked thoughtful, wondering 
what he might have done if he had taken his father's advice and gone in for 
medicine. He looks as trim as he did in days of old, when it stretched our 
imaginations to the limit to see in him a farmer. Ed disappointed us not a 
little. We all felt that although he is the leader of a symphony he should 
have brought his cornet along to take us back to the golden days. Oh, that 
boy, Collard ! He looks more like an Apollo than ever. How we all 
worship him ! From his own modest statement and all reports he's more 
than making good as a coach and physical director. 

To be a doer of deeds is noble. To rejoice with the doers of deeds is, 
I hope, worth something. Tonight as never before I know "a man's life 
consisteth not in the abundance of things which he possesseth," and in that 
comfort I am happy : for I, too, am a member of the class of '21.

THE modest Sophomores expose their past history to the criticizing 
gaze of the public with humility and meekness. But all great deeds 
must be brought to light sooner or later. 

The first year of their career was unusually eventful and exciting. In 
numbers of more than a hundred, mainly young men, they came as a mighty 
horde, sweeping everything before them. Contrary to custom they were 
received with joy and gladness. Their experiences and deeds of valor were 
many and inspiring. All peoples adored and admired them. Old traditions 
were cast to the winds in an enthusiastic endeavor to do them homage : The 
Great, the Wonderful Freshmen of "18. Truly, so great an ovation was never 
given before or since, to such as these. 

The second year has been no less eventful and interesting. Although 
greatly reduced in numbers, they have more than supplied this deficiency 
in deeds of greatness. By their high standards and lofty ideals they have 
created an atmosphere approaching Utopia. True to their training, they 
have been advocates of peace and order. They have led the Freshmen in 
paths of righteousness and wisdom and taught them their place in college 
life. Early in the year the Freshmen, feeling their importance, decided to 
celebrate their privileges, amid great rejoicing and feasting. The all-compre- 
hending minds of the Sophomores realized the consequences which would 
result from fulfillment of such perverted illusions, and undertook to quell this 
boisterous egotism. The conflict which ensued was long and strenuous. 
It called forth the utmost shrewdness and Herculean strength of the Freshies. 
They finally overcame the inferior numbers of their assailants and reached 
their destination. They, however, were taught that superior powers must 
be recognized and respected. Fortunate, indeed, were they to come in contact 
with so mighty a force so early in their career, for it rendered them exceed- 
ingly docile and obedient ever after, to the wonder and mystification of their 

The influence upon the upper classmen has been no less beneficial. The 
all-wise Juniors have ever willingly followed where the Sophs led, but the 
dignified Seniors, so as not to sink into utter nothingness beside their mighty 
neighbors, were forced to drink deeply at the fountain of knowledge, which is 
to their lasting benefit. 

The Sophomores have been active in social and literary circles and in 
athletics. They have furnished some of the greatest athletes of the season, 
who have helped to make "the purple and the white" famous. With two more 
years in which to acquire knowledge and exert their influence, McKendree 
standards will have reached such a pinnacle of perfection as to exceed the 
wildest dreams of any college faculty, and with such leadership, surely 
wonders and miracles will follow in the path of the class of '22 forever. 







t. i. 




You hear a lot nowadays about class exclusiveness. In our case, how- 
ever, it is all bunk. We have decided to treat everybody as our 
equals — Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors and even members of the fac- 
ulty. Of course, this does not mean that we have failed to realize our indis- 
pensability. Have we not been constantly reminded of that fact? Even 
before we came to McKendree, we were being sought out by President Mc- 
Cammon, all the rest of the faculty, and the student body. They plead, they 
begged, they entreated that we grace the campus of McKendree with our 
presence. Not only they, but many other colleges beset us on all sides. 
Looking back over our achievements of the year, we feel that they have been 
rewarded for their efforts in securing our co-operation. 

The spirit of the class of 1923 was well shown when one of the girls 
called a newly elected officer to her and whispered quite audibly, "Let's do 
something." And the Freshmen have kept something doing ever since. On 
that day, everyone knew that there was something in the air, as indeed there 
was, for the big class wiener roast was held that night. And it was truly 
a "classy" one. Though our way was barred by Sophomores, Juniors and 
Seniors, we all assembled in safety at Sayre's. En route to Perry's pasture, 
we were foully attacked by a detachment of upper classmen, who, however, 
were scon forced to retire from the field of action. The next morning, our 
colors, maroon and silver, were waving triumphantly over the chapel. The 
same spirit dominated our Freshmen football team, when it won a victory 
with the Academy. 

Our activities have extended in many different lines. We have started 
a teacher's reform movement. Realizing how obsessed the minds of the 
instructors become with their studies, we devote a goodly portion of each 
recitation period to diverting their minds from the subject in hand. Pete 
leads in this noble work, ably assisted by Johnston and Van Dyke. Dr. 
Stearns has received the benefit of most of our reform, in Freshman English 
class, and we must say that he has responded nobly to our treatment. The 
Freshman girls have also thrown themselves heart and soul, into the subject 
of reform. Miss Brooks is the recipient of their special attention. 

Where can you find the Freshmen? There are just two ways. One is 
to line UD the student body, and select the finest looking members of both 
sexes. They'll be the Freshmen. Another way is to search in the orchestra, 
on the athletic field, in the classrooms, and among the organizations. You 
won't have to search long, for first and foremost will be the Freshmen. 





The Old College Literary Societies 

WHO that has dwelt on or near College Hill has not been thrilled by 
the musical notes, long drawn out, of the cries on the campus: 
"Phi-lo-o-o," "Pla-to-o-o," "Cli-o-o-c"? — cries suggestive of more 
things than one, of things quite different, when contrasted? At first, a warn- 
ing notice, stark and clear, now a challenge, strong and bold ; again, a war 
whoop quick and shrill, at times gaining in volume until anon a chorus of 
mingled yells and cries like bedlam loosed awake the sleepy town to a 
consciousness of Friday evening and the halls taking up. 

To one who hears the tones and volume of these cries and interprets 
the moods of the souls that have prompted them, they are full of human 
interest. The note of the partisan, the candidate, the thoughtful, the unthink- 
ing, and of the statesman, preacher, rival and teacher, all this and more may 
be surely detected. 

These are cries that have meant so much to good men and women who 
have gained their most helpful experiences in college life in these truly 
splendid old literary societies. 

May the spirit of the noble past inspire the strong souls of a greater 
future to serve their fellow men well with the knowledge and experience 
gained here, and let the old oaks and elms resound through the ages with 



Platonian Literary Society 

THE Platonian Literary Society was founded on the night of April 
20, 1849. Since that time the society has not only been an important 
factor in college life but has been the place of training and inspiration 
for more than twenty-two hundred men who have gone forth from 
the halls of Plato to places of honor and trust in all walks of life. 

The first session of the present year was held on September 26. At that 
meeting twenty-eight old members were gathered. During the year twenty- 
five new men have decided to follow in "Wisdom's Way." The presence of 
so many old members has had an exceedingly good influence on the literary 

One of the most interesting meetings of the year was that held February 
27, at which a number of the former members of Plato gave an exceedingly 
instructive and entertaining program, supplementing the regular program 
of the evening. This program was given by Brown, F. C. ; Stroud, R. C. ; 
Stroud, F. D.; Howard, C. W. ; and Hardy, D. M. 

At the annual banquet, May 1, the society was exceedingly fortunate 
in having present the old Plato Quartet, composed of Clucas, Sager, Sabine 
and Van Cleve. J. B. Sager was toastmaster of the evening. 

The success of Plato in helping young men "find themselves" has been 
to a large extent the means whereby so many of our former members have 
become prominent in civil and military life. The respect in which some of the 
old members of Plato hold the society can be realized by what they have 
written about their experiences here: 

"Have just now shaken hands with General Merritt and indulged with 
him in pleasant memories of the early days of the Republic and at old Mc- 
Kendree in 'Plato Hall," when youth, and valor, and hope, and health and 
ambition were ours." — General John A. Halderman, former minister to Siam. 

" Had I received no training save that which I received in Plato Hall, 
as I attended McKendree, my time and money would have been well in- 
vested." — Professor S. J. Curlee. 

"My experience in Plato Hall was of great value to me in after life, for, 
unlike most army officers, I learned to 'think standing' and could always 
make a stagger at an impromptu speech." — General Wesley Merritt. 







^■ijf *■ .. 





Clionian Literary Society 

A LLOW me to present to you Miss Clio, winsome, carefree, jolly Clio. 
/-% Although fifty years old, she is youthful, happy and ambitious. Prob- 
ably she is frivolous, but have you ever met anyone more entertain- 
ing? When in her presence what a joy it is to forget Greek tragedies, French 
verbs, chemical form.ulas, psychological tests and political problems. 

When you come to the home of Miss Clio she will keep you smiling 
from the time you enter the hall until you leave, yet her program will be 
enlightening as well as entertaining. 

Clio is serious despite her fun-making. For instance, the debate: "RE- 
A YOUNG MAN TO HOLD HER HAND," would never have been decided 
as it was if the judges had not consisted of a Plato, a Philo and a faculty 
member. Had Clio judged the decision would have been unanimously decided 
in favor of the negative. 

During this year, in place of the usual lengthy and tedious orations, orig- 
inal stories have been written by the girls and read at each session. This has 
developed originality and probably, who knows, some Clionian has found her 
life work as a result of having prepared a clever narrative for a Friday eve- 
ning program. 

In spite of the unfavorable hour, Clio has regularly begun her program 
at 6:30 p. m. 

Clio gave her annual banquet on December 12. Soft light from dozens 
of red shaded candles furnished the only illumination. The tables were 
attractively decorated in red and white, the Clio colors. The food, which was 
prepared by the members, was delicious. An excellent orchestra from St. 
Louis furnished music throughout the evening. Interesting toasts were given 
by President McCammon and several old Clionians. The reminiscences of 
the old Clionians made the girls to realize the advantages the Clionians of 
today have over the Clionians of yesterday. It was a fitting celebration of 
Clio's fiftieth anniversary. 

The work of the Clionian Literary Society during the past year has been 
harmonious and happy. Lasting friendships have been made and the feeling 
of good fellowship, which has prevailed throughout, has made of the members 
a united Clio.

THE Philosophian Literary Society entered upon her eighty-fourth 
year last January. Philo is the oldest literary society west of the 
Alleghenies, and her record is unequaled by that of any similar organi- 
zation in the country. She has been represented in the Illinois Legislature 
and in Congress almost continually since her organization. She has had her 
members on the Supreme Court benches in several states ; governors of states 
and ambassadors have been among her products. The excellence of the 
training received in Philo has been proven many times by the testimony of 
men who learned there the principles of public speaking. 

The year 1919-20 has been one of great progress. The society this year 
has been composed of a larger proportion of old members than usual, and as 
a result the character of the performances has been even higher than usual. 
Owing to various unpreventable causes the men's societies did not have the 
usual number of open sessions this year, but at the ones which were held and 
in the semi-annual exhibitions Philo showed that her members are maintain- 
ing the standards of the society. 

On June 10 of this year Philo will hold her triennial reunion and banquet 
for the first time since 1914. Owing to the war Philo has not held an annual 
or triennial banquet since 1916, and the banquet this year is being looked 
forward to by both active members and alumni. The banquet will be an elab- 
orate eight-course dinner, Roger W. Valentine of the class of 1915 being 
toastmaster, and several distinguished Philo alumni being on the program 
for speeches. 




Other Organizations 
and Activities 






^lf^^ uj 

'r IT 

The Schoolmasters' Club 

WITH the current year another has been added to the activities of 
McKendree — "The Schoolmasters' Club." The purpose of this newly- 
arrived pedagogues' society is three-fold — to bring a group of kindred 
spirits into a closer union, to bring to their notice and knowledge certain 
practical problems from actual experience, and to introduce our prospective 
teachers to the leaders in education and to possible employers. McKendreans 
must, while preparing for service, get into vital touch with current problems 
and social conditions. The teacher must come to feel a sense of esprit de 
corps — a need not quite met by the class-room. 

This initial year has been much hampered and broken in upon. Sickness, 
the calendar of like associations already established, the conflicts that only 
the passing of time can adjust have one and all hindered. Eventually this 
organization, now the youngest, will become a fi.xed datum in the life of the 
college. The good cheer of President McCammon and of Dean Baker and 
the staunch support of Professor Walton have been invaluable. The club 
has heard several current issues discussed, as, "The Smith-Towner Bill," by 
Professor Walton, and "The Present Crisis in Education," by Professor 
Harry B. Smellie of St. Louis. 

Plans for another year are being formulated. In addition to current issues 
and professional problems effort will be made in co-operation with the col- 
lege office to help our would-be teachers to some useful field of service. To 
the mutual helpfulness of college and public the interest of every McKendrean 
is earnestly solicited in what may well become a mutual good. 

"Vivat, crescat, floreat, universitas." 




Y. W. C. A. 

A MONG the live organizations maintained by the students at McKen- 
/-% dree College is the Young Women's Christian Association. To a 
-*- -^ postal card, the "advance guard" of the Y. W. C. A., may be accred- 
ited the large attendance and enthusiasm of the first devotional meeting, an 
enthusiasm which has permeated the entire year's work. 

The girls generously contributed their share of the $600 subscribed by the 
local Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. for association purposes. A portion of the 
amount was utilized in securing out-of-town speakers. 

The Cabinet Training Council, including representatives from Southern 
Illinois Normal University, from Blackburn, Shurtleff and McKen- 
dree Colleges, held a meeting at McKendree, May 1, 1920, for the purpose 
of discussing cabinet problems and national association problems. 

The Social Service Committee proved its worth by dressing dolls for 
poor children, stringing pop-corn for Christmas trees, and sending violets 
to the city for free distribution. 

Three important social events took place during the year. First, there 
was a reception to the new students, September 23, 1919. Later in the year 
a party was given in honor of the basketball team, in appreciation of their 
praiseworthy work in the state tournament. The third was the annual ban- 
quet, given in Pearson's Hall, March 19, 1920. 

The outgoing cabinet, which deserves unstinted praise for the success 
of the year's work, included: president, Ruth Walton; vice-president, Lelia 
Neuling ; secretary. Opal Hartline ; treasurer, Florence Early. The incoming 
cabinet, which promises to be equally efficient, is: president, Ruth Hoppock; 
vice-president, Marie Shurtleff; secretary, Winifred Grantham: treasurer, 
Luella Mueller. 




Y. M. C. A 

THE Y. M. C. A. endeavors to train its members to live principles rather 
than to profess doctrines or creeds. This aim of a practical Christianity 
is secured by placing the proper emphasis upon the development of 
the body, mind and spirit. 

At our regular Wednesday evening meetings we have had speakers of 
prominence as well as students for leaders. A gospel team was organized 
and accomplished much good in the series of meetings it held in the neigh- 
boring towns. 

A number of social functions have been given under the joint auspices 
of the Y. W. C .A. and the Y. M. C. A. An Acquaintance Social was held at 
the beginning cf the year, a hike was held and a reception given in honor of 
the basketball team. A very successful tennis tournament was held in May 
and an endeavor will be made to make it an annual affair. 

In those ways, the fostering of the spirit of a practical religion and the 
social life on the Hill, the Y. M. C. A. has endeavored to play its part.

The Ministerial Group 

THE personnel of this group of sky pilots includes nine full-fledged 
preachers and five who are living in hopes. Nine, also, have joined the 
holy ranks of matrimony, and five, likewise hopefully, no doubt, remain 
in single blessedness. Of those now engaged in active service, Hendrix holds 
forth at St. Jacobs. Curtis at Lebanon Presbyterian Church, Whitlock at 
O'Fallon, Cralley at Shiloh, Harris at Bunker Hill, Hanbaum at Shattuc, and 
Buford at the Belleville Epworth Church. Mathis and Flemming are mem- 
bers of the Y. M. C A. gospel team. The others are Feller, Harrell, Kean, 
Williams and HoUis.

The Gospel Team 

COMPOSED of members of the student body, the Gospel Team of this 
year has held high the banner of our college, not only on the campus, 
but in many neighboring towns and villages as well. Its work has 
been effective throughout the year. 

Most members of the team are students who have recognized religious 
work as their calling in life. The work this year has aided them greatly in 
launching out into that great field of service to which they have decided to 
devote their life-work. Not only has their activity given them practical 
e.xperience in Gospel work, but their team-work has also materialized in 
successful service, for which their friends have expressed much appreciation. 

The aim of the Gospel team is to do Gosoel work whenever and wherever 
the opportunity is afforded. They ask no compensation for their services, 
although in all cases their expenses have been paid when they were away 
from college substituting in some regular charge or doing other Gospel team 
work. During this college year the team has visited many surrounding towns 
and on each trip has been pleasantly received and has been able to bring back 
reports of many pleasant and helpful experiences. 


McKendree Athletics 

MC KENDREE COLLEGE cultivates athletics as a pastime. There is 
less professionalism here than in most other institutions. Neverthe- 
less our record shows that such a condition by no means detracts 
from the ability to win victories. 

The spirit of comradeship cultivated upon the gymnasium floor or ath- 
letic field binds together more firmly the contestants, and, inasmuch as 
"athletic combinations" overreach the boundaries of other natural groupings, 
the tendency is to break down too pronounced lines of demarkation. 

Sufficient victories have been won to afford that agreeable sensation 
which comes with success. Sufficient defeats have been experienced to 
school the teams in the discipline of sustained effort under adverse circum- 

The present year has seen better athletic material and more of it trying 
for places than in any previous year. The prospect in this line for next season 
is most gratifying. 

Athletics can be made a success in a small college as is being demon- 
strated in McKendree. 



WHEN football was reinstated at McKendree in the fall of 1916 after 
the lapse of eleven years, it was not expected that a strong, winning 
aggregation could be put in the field at once, nor that such a combina- 
tion could be counted on, in fact, in the course of two, three, or even four 
years. It was recognized that the spirit of football demanded time and 
patience for its development, that an atmosphere must first be created, that 
the football instinct must be firmly planted and given opportunity for growth 
before McKendree could hope to approximate en the gridiron the proud posi- 
tion she holds on the basketball floor. A limited student body, insufficient 
funds, and inadequate coaching have hampered us, but we believe that foot- 
ball has once more taken root in the soil of McKendree and may be expected 
in the due course of time to grow into its more merited place among college 

In 1916 Captain Turner, a burly quarterback from the coal mines of Har- 
risburg, piloted the team, with Professor L. C. LeVan as coach. In "17 
R. W. Miller, a hard-hitting red-headed athlete from up state, was captain and 
Zachritz, of St. Louis, acted as mentor and guide. In the fall of 1918 war, 
influenza and S.A.T.C. rather disorganized things, but some warrior stars in 
the backfield proved to be exceptionally fast and easily succeeded in humbling 
Shurtleff", our old rival, in the only game when the regular team was able to 
appear on the field. 

The season opened in 1919 with exceptionally bright prospects. A num- 
ber of ex-service men of considerable experience and some promising new 
material recruited from various high schools of the state, together with the 
remains of last year's squad, made up a large and formidable-looking aggrega- 
tion. A strong schedule had been arranged by Manager Wagener and Captain 
Hall and football stock at McKendree was going up. 

The first game, played on the local field with Illinois College of Jackson- 
ville, October 11. was probably the best of the season as a whole. Illinois 
had come down, flushed with a double victory, expecting easy pickings. They 
met with a stout resistance from both line and backfield, and while the score 
was in their favor when the final whistle blew, they knew that they had had 
to work for all they took back with them. Following the first game disor- 
ganization set in, the team seemed unable to get together, the lack of efficient 
coaching was felt, some promising new men were laid out by injuries received 
in practice, and a losing game was played the remainder of the season. On 
October 18 we met Shurtleff at Alton; October 23. Lincoln at Lincoln; Octo- 
ber 25, Charleston Normal at Charleston ; November 1, Blackburn at Lebanon ; 
November 15, Carbondale at Lebanon , and November 22, Carbondale at 




.;j*«i,; i^J; ■-'^'^^•■^'-''^ 

Undoubtedly, the man most deserving of special mention is Collard, who 
played throughout the season at fullback. Consistently hard-hitting on line 
plunges, always to be counted on for gains when carrying the ball, he was 
the most formidable man the opposing teams had to face. McCammon at 
quarter showed phenomenal speed and uncanny skill when carrying the ball 
around end. White's game at center was steady and dependable. On line 
plunges Wagener from right half was irresistible when he launched his solid 
weight of bone and muscle at the opposing line. 

The men winning letters and the regular positions they played are as 
follows: Collard. F.B. ; Wagener, R.H.; Garrett, L.H. ; McCammon, Q.B. ; 
Tucker. L.E. ; Bower, L.T. ; Hall, L.G. : White. C. ; Johnson. R.G. ; Weineke. 
R.T.; Sayre, R.E. ; Brewer, L.G. ; Rawlings. H.B. ; Ball. R.T.

TENNIS is one sport which has always been popular at McKendree, 
but which has not received much attention as intercollegiate competi- 
tion. A few times MeKendree has sent a tennis team to the 1. 1. A. A. 
meet, but her teams have never made much of a record in this sport. Pros- 
pects this year are much brighter than usual and McKendree ought to be 
well represented at the state meet. Interest in tennis is on the increase since 
the war, and the college courts are occupied almost continually from five 
o'clock in the morning until seven in the evening. Tennis is popular among 
the girls as well as the boys, and McKendree has several women players 
who can hold their own with the best. 

Competition for the men's teams should be very close. Walton, Sayre, 
McCammon and others have had considerable experience in high school com- 
petition, while Tucker, East, Hailing, Canedy, Yohe and various others should 
put up a stiff fight for the teams. 



McKENDREE has always had reason to be proud of its track team, 
and this year bids fair to be no exception. In the history of track- 
athletics on College Hill, only one dual track meet has been lost, 
and that was to Washington University in 1916. In that meet McKendree 
won seven firsts of a possible thirteen and only lost the meet by a very small 
margin. The team this year will be composed of three letter men who returned 
to college after being in the service, and a number of men who, although this 
is their first year in college athletics, are showing up well and should cause 
some of our old rivals a lot of trouble. 

The letter men on the team are Captain Collard, Rawlings and Sayre. 
The new men who appear to the best advantage are McCammon, Canedy, 
Walton, Maxey, Grauel and Karnes.

THE baseball prospects for the coming season are very bright. Eight 
letter men have returned. They are: CoUard, Doeblin, East, Sayre, 
Seneff, Tucker, Captain Yohe and Wagener. The pitching material 
is very promising. Some of the probable pitchers are Sayre, who will do the 
bulk of the work ; Yohe, Doeblin and Shurtleff. As for catchers, both Sayre 
and Yohe will alternate in the box and behind the bat. 

The team as it lined up for the first game was with the sturdy Sayre in 
the box, and Yohe, the brainy, fast-throwing captain, catching. The infield 
looked exceptionally good. The hard-hitting, fast-fielding Wagener was at 
first ; the veteran Collard at second ; the dependable Tucker, always danger- 
ous at the plate, at third ; and East, playing his third year, at short. The 
hard-throwing, rangy outfield consisted of Doeblin, a sure fielder and con- 
sistent hitter, in left ; the slugger Seneff in center, and the speedy McCammon 
in right. The utility men are Hall, an outfielder ; Catt, first baseman, and 
Shurtleff, a pitcher, all dependable men. A strong schedule has been arranged 
and a very successful season is predicted.

YOUNG people like to get ready for something. Training for its own 
sake does not appeal to the average youth. There must be some- 
where, in the not too distant future, a goal, the desire to attain which 
calls forth the best effort of the aspirant. 

McKendree College seeks in its High School Interscholastic to place 
before the young people of Southern Illinois such a goal. It is practically 
safe to say that this event has become a permanent feature of our spring 
program. The success which has attended the three High School meets held 
here warrants us in believing that they encourage a large number of pupils 
to seek and attain a higher degree of proficiency in both the physical and 
intellectual accomplishments represented in such a contest. The mastery 
which results from such competition is of incalculable and enduring benefit. 
It becomes an unconscious ally in all the later endeavors of life. 

McKendree's Interscholastic affords a class of competition which is 
worthy of the best effort of any school within its territory. Individual records 
show a wide distribution of honors. Ample provision is made for the largest 
recognition of talent. The preliminaries are conducted with the same care 
and attention as the finals. A splendid spirit of generosity has always been 
manifested by the losers— not an unimportant feature of the educative purpose 
of the contest.

burg in the track and field contests, and Murphysboro in the Intellectual

THE universal language of music is as exact and comprehensive as any 
foreign language, although the difficulty is not always encountered in 
the reading, but in the spirit and interpretation of the subject-matter. 
It is enjoyed by all who can give it an intelligent hearing. 

According to Dr. Hadley, piano music should be studied by all students, 
for mental concentration and discipline. 

Music at McKendree College has become a social asset. At every gath- 
ering, society program and the chapel exercises, it functions to stimulate the 
feeling and the imagination. During the second semester we were entertained, 
on Wednesdays, at chapel by the college orchestra, consisting of fifteen 
players. The "Pop" programs gave life and tone to the exercises. Inter- 
mittently, on Fridays, a piano or vocal solo was rendered, college and patriotic 
songs were also sung by the assembled students, adding zest to the occasion. 

The public recitals by the department of music afford an opportunity for 
the student in music to acquire poise, self-control, and ease in public appear- 
ance, which is a most important advantage. The selections are all performed 
from memory. 

A chorus composed of fifty voices was organized to render Handel's 
"Messiah." Practice began in time to give it before the Christmas vacation, 
but owing to prevailing conditions it was necessarily postponed. Subsequent 
rehearsals were resumed and the Messiah was publicly performed on January 
28 under the direction of Professor August Hailing, director of music, assisted 
by Miss Ruth Walton, pianist, the Misses Margaret Kline, soprano, and Helen 
Ludwig, contralto, both of St. Louis, Mo. All the solos were in capable 
hands. Special mention should be made of the sympathetic tone and inter- 
pretation which the contralto gave to the solo, "He Was Despised and Re- 
jected of Men" ; also the hopeful tone-color in the bright soprano solo, "Re- 
joice Greatly, O Daughter of Zion." The tenor solos, "Comfort Me," "Every- 
Valley Shall Be Exalted," and "Thy Rebuke Hath Broken His Heart," were 
sung by the director. The beautiful flowing melody in the chorus, "His 
Yoke Is Easy and His Burden Is Light," likewise the responsive singing in 
"Lift Up Your Heads, O Ye Gates," by alternating voices, and the most 
fitting and popular closing chorus, "Hallelujah, for the Lord Omnipotent 
Reigneth" were exceptionally well rendered and praiseworthy. The Messiah 
will long be remembered as the crowning musical event of the year's college

Domestic Science 

IN the Home Economics Department, the girls study the subjects of food, 
sewing and household management in their relation to the home and 
teaching professions. 

Some people entertain the idea that any woman can keep house, sew and 
prepare meals, but she cannot if she has never learned how, and unfortunate, 
indeed, it is for the people who are dependent upon such a person. 

The girl or woman who is neat in appearance and knows what is becom- 
ing and appropriate to wear is much more admirable and pleasing than one 
who does not. To be well dressed does not necessarily mean to spend a large 
amount of money, and this expense is avoided by the girl who has had the 
opportunity to learn how to sew, and also to make over old garments. 

The woman who knows little or nothing of household management, 
may, day after day, let the iceman put ice in the icebox without washing it 
off, until the inside of the icebox is covered with mud, and no one knows what 
kind of germs is getting into the food and milk in the refrigerator. A lack 
of knowledge of sanitation may also permit the food to become infected in 
many ways. One of the most frequent ways is the use of newspapers around 
the food by those who know nothing of cleanliness. If someone came in and 
emptied a tube of "cold" or tubercular germs in the kitchen he would be 
called a criminal. Is the person who uses newspapers on which to prepare 
food any less a criminal, when the papers have been carried by an unkempt 
newsboy, thrown on the porch or in the yard when delivered, and then han- 
dled by everybody while they are being read, and then thrown around on the 
bed or floor for a while? 

.Again, if someone took from us part of our food each meal, while we were 
eating, would he not be called a thief? Is the person any less a thief who does 
not cook oatmeal three hours so it can be digested? Or fries eggs at such 
a high temperature and in so much fat that they are neither palatable nor 

A person's knowledge of food principles can best be judged by the amount 
of milk they use in the food they are preparing. The ignorant economize on 
milk instead of using at least a pint per person per day. Milk is the cheapest 
food, but one who does not know the caloric value of foods does not know 
that there is more food value in a quart of milk than can be gotten in any 
other food for the same price. 

The civilization of a nation is measured more by the food and the method 
of its preparation than by any other fact. 

This is an age of specialization, and food specialists are needed worse 
than medical specialists. If everyone who prepares food is capable of pre- 
paring it the way it should be prepared, there would be less suffering from 
indigestion and malnutrition. 
Even the poet has said: 

We may live without poetry, music and art ; 
We may live without conscience, and live without heart; 
We may live without friends, we may live without books. 
But civilized man cannot live without cooks. 


Alumni Association 

THE glory of a college is her sons and daughters. Like Cornelia of 
old she may point to them and say, "These are my jewels." McKen- 
dree, like other colleges, is proud of her alumni. The lustre of her 
escutcheon is brightened not only by the record of many of those who have 
regularly finished their course and received the bachelor's degree, but also 
by the achievements of many who were students only for a time and did not 
complete their course, but who gained an inspiration which led them to noble 
service in some field of human endeavor, like General Merritt or General 
Wilson : and likewise by the honorary alumni who have received their degrees 
in recognition of superior attainment in some special line or distinguished 
service already performed ; such as Peter Cartwright or William Jennings 

The oldest living graduate is Judge James H. Roberts, who is the sole 
survivor of the class of 1848. Space does not permit us to mention by name 
the long list of worthies who have borne away McKendree diplomas, but 
perhaps it would not arouse much jealousy on the part of the others to men- 
tion our two U. S. Senators, Harford of West Virginia, and Sherman of Illi- 
nois ; or our two ex-governors, Deneen of Illinois, and Johnson of Missouri. 
But for the long list of lawyers, doctors, teachers, preachers, judges, congress- 
men and distinguished service men, both in military and civil life, we are 
compelled to refer the reader to the alumni roster. 

According to a recent survey it appears that our alumni are distributed 
over the world as follows: There is one or more located in each of forty 
states. South America. Cuba, Porto Rico, England, India, Japan, China and 
Korea. The same survey shows that there are McKendree teachers in 
twenty-eight of the states ; preachers in twenty-six ; lawyers in twenty-four, 
and physicians in sixteen. Also a study of the distribution of the entire body 
as to vocation shows that 24 per cent have entered the ministry, 20 per cent 
the law, 18 per cent teaching. 9 per cent home-making, 5 per cent medicine, 
5 per cent business life, 5 per cent indefinite, 4 per cent farming, 2 per cent 
journalism, 2 per cent engineering, while 1 per cent have devoted themselves 
to each of the following vocations : chemistry, dentistry, art and railroad 
work. A more recent survey shows that of the graduates of the last ten years 
50 per cent are engaged in educational work; so that McKendree is doing her 
full share in the effort to relieve the present shortage of teachers.

Academy Seniors 

THE Academy Freshmen Class of 1916 was composed of twenty-four 
members. Before the year was over we had organized and had chosen 
green and gold for our class colors. In the second year the class was 
much smaller in numbers, but what it lacked in quantity it made up in quality. 
As Juniors we were organized into a real live class. Our biggest social event 
of the year was a hare and hound chase ending in a picnic. This was given 
in honor of the Seniors and the whole event was marked by new and original 
ideas. It was considered a big success by all those who were invited. Our 
Senior class colors are blue and gold. We have our Senior rings, which are 
very much admired. Our class meetings are often turned into social gather- 
ings, sometimes with refreshments. We believe in having initiative; so 
instead of following in the footsteps of our predecessors we are planning 
a commencement all our own, which is a new thing for McKendree Academy. 
Our class members all have something for which they are especially noted. 
(Continued on ])ag-e (>!») 




Academy Juniors 

ON September 22, 1919. Prof. Waggoner welcomed the class of 1921 to 
McKendree Academy for the third time. At the first class meeting 
the following officers were elected: President, George McCammon; 
Secretary-Treasurer, Holmes Orr. This remarkable group boasts of an Orr, 
a Starr, a Hart, and a regular Guy, besides numerous other notables. In 
deciding just what sort of talent the class excels in, the task is very hard, 
because the Juniors are so good in everything. They were liberally repre- 
sented in the Stunt Show, and both boys' and girls' athletics. 

Reader, after scanning over these many talents — which are curtailed in 
this sketch to save paper — can you put your finger on the foremost one? 
I fear net. The only way to classify the genius of this class is for me to 
say modestly, "We lead in every line we carry," and then look away while 
you catch your breath. 

Keep it up. Juniors ! Let us kindle anew the glowing torch of the Seniors. 
We will make its flames burst higher and brighter than before, and our last 
year will be one of glorious achievement after three years of leadership. 


( L'lintiiuu'' 

iini paiiv lis 

Our president. Albert Feller, has a very interesting and heroic war record. 
Dorothy McCammcn, our secretary-treasurer, is especially noted for her 
A's. Delta Jessop. salutatcrian, is the artist of our class, and is much in 
demand when posters are needed. Alice Walton looks forward to a musical 
career. Reba Traylor is one angle of that oft-seen triangle of Seniors. 
Roscoe Hollis. valedictorian, is our would-be preacher, while Omer Whitlock 
is a full-fledged cne and is our only married member. 
"Toujours jamais plus haut." 





Academy Sophomores 

HE Academy Sophomores class has demonstrated its ability on the 
athletic field and in the class room. 

Although we have not seen fit to organize as the other classes 
have, we have an organization bound together with the ties of friendship and 
mutual interest in our work. 

We have no appointed place of meeting, but if you will drop into the 
Academy office anywhere from nine to nine-fifteen a. m. you will find all 
the members of the class "cussing" and discussing everything that has hap- 
pened and everything that may happen. 

The class is especially superior in argumentation. All the members excel 
in this art, much to the discomfort of Professor H. W. Gould. The great 
trouble is that we are right most of the time.

Academy Freshmen 

IT is not every Academy Freshmen class that can boast of two married men 
in its membership. They are preachers, too, and we feel that this fact 
lends dignity to our ranks. Consequently the stigma that is usually 
attached to Freshmen cannot be placed upon us, and we feel that we are 
an important factor on the campus. Harris and Flemming are these two 
important personages, and perhaps their austerity is somewhat balanced by 
Roma's kittenish ways. Feller is seldom heard from, but you can usually 
hear Clare when you go near the Boys" Dorm. Baer, Ora and Wiegand 
complete our class roll. 


Academy Athletics 

THE past year has shown a pronounced interest in athletics for the 
Academy. During the football season the Academy turned out a 
team that challenged the 'varsity to a hard-fought contest, and held the 
college boys to two touchdowns after making a well-earned touchdown 
themselves. Week after week the Academy boys turned out and offered 
lively scrimmage for the 'varsity. 

The Academy basketball team drew a large following during the entire 
season. It was the first time that the Academy had been recognized as an 
official team, an appropriation being awarded by the McKendree Athletic 
Association to equip the team with uniforms. The crowning game of the 
season was with St. Louis Hi-Y Club, the Academy winning, 15-14. after 
an overtime period. Many high schools and church clubs in the county and 
from St. Louis were played. Captain Carleton led his men through a long 
and interesting series of games. The services of Hailing and Akers as for- 
wards, and Dolley. Whitlock, Jansen and Loudenberg as guards, proved 
that McKendree Academy has some real fighting blood, and that next year's 
team should meet with greater success. 







Says Professor McClure, contemplating the annual "Joke Box," "This box 
is too small, it ought to be large enough to contain the entire Freshman class."

The West is a good place in which to grow up ; the South is the land 
of sunshine and poetry ; the North makes people energetic and full of pep, 
but give me East every time. — Virginia. 

During the summer, Monty decided he would return to McKendree and 
bring with him the elevating, aging, beautifying, attractive, irresistible and 
distinguished piece of fuzz called the mustache. Monty arrived, coat and 
baggage and mustache, but the sad part of it all was that no one noticed 
the mustache. He continued to say his prayers nightly, went to church on 
Sunday, and lo and behold, on Tuesday, October 7, someone actually discov- 
ered its existence. That is why Monty has been wearing a smile ! Patience, 
perseverance and courage will ever win. "Twinkle, twinkle, little hair. How 
I wonder what you air. Up above that lip so brave ; Why in thunder don't 
he shave?"

While practicing football Akers fell on Collard's back and was carried

them. Crip Carvel is among the latter class. Though he tries his best to

Crip and Rev. Kean. "Now," said Dr. Doubt, "I have called on everyone

To Whom It May Concern: 

Know all men by these presents, that we, the undersigned denizens of 
Carnegie Hall and other individuals of the male portion of the McKendree 
student body, realizing the sacredness of McKendree traditions, and conscious 
of the rectitude of our intentions in preserving all time-honored customs and 
hallowed institutions of the campus, do solemnly publish and declare, that we 
will observe the anniversary of Quarantine Week, sacred to the memory 
of all loyal McKendreans, with due ceremony and ritual, wearing neither 
collar nor tie, those evidences of an effete civilization, nor engaging in the 
nefarious practice of shaving for the period of one week. 

(Signed) Roughnecks 
And the girls made reply in this wise: 

It is with deep regret that we behold our brothers disdaining the visible 
evidences of civilization and dropping back to the habits and customs of 
generations that knew neither soap, nor brush, nor collar. It is as if the mis- 
quotation of Darwin were not inapt, and the lapse of ages were quickly and 
easily spanned in the process of retrogression. 

We deem it our duty in this crisis to exert every effort to preserve in 
McKendree College the highest standards of civilization that we know, and 
to keep before the eyes of those unfortunate victims of what we hope is a 
mere temporary obsession the best form of etiquette, decorum and dress, lest 
the attractions of the present barbarous and barberless condition prove too 
strong, and the erring delight to walk therein permanently. 

To this end let each girl do her utmost to remember during the week 
good English, her best manners at table and elsewhere, her best behavior 
in class and on examination, and in every way to hold aloft the torch of 
civilization, hoping thereby to secure a return of the deluded souls within 
our midst from a barbarian state to the condition of twentieth century
