A College 'mid plains is standing, standing there from olden days.
The Pioneer of the prairies, first in untrodden ways.
For service and Christian culture, for efficiency she stands.
Her sons and daughters praise her. with voices, hearts and hands.
Hail to thee our dear old McKendree,
May we always loyal be,
It's a song of praise we'll raise to thee.
Alma Mater, dear old M-C.
May we ever own thee true and wise and right.
Honor Purple and the White.
And for victory we'll always fight,
'Till we win for old M-C-K.
Enduring and strong she stands there, stands upon our College Hill.
Though others may outnumber, she holds the first place still,
For beauty and truth and knowledge, and for service without bound.
Then let us raise our voices, until the plains resound.
Senior Class History
At the beginning of the school year of 1922 a large num-
ber of freshmen entered McKendree in the pursuit of a higher
education. For three years the Class of '26 has met successfully
the sorrows and joys that are a part of a college education.
Now, entered upon the fourth and last year of our college life.
we begin to realize as never before how much it has meant to
us. We have formed many friendships, both among students and
professors, which will last through life. Twelve of the original
members of the Class of '26 have gone through all four years
together which is an unusually large percentage.
Many honors have been bestowed upon members of the
Class of '26. During our sophomore year, the office of presi-
dent of the Student Association was held by one of our mem-
bers. Robert Stephens. This is an office seldom held by a sopho-
more. Again in our junior year the same office was bestowed
upon another of our members, St. Clair Harris. This year this
office was held by Paul Schuwerk the first semester and Walter
Bailey the second semester.
The Class of '26 has been well represented in Pi Kappa
Delta, the Press Club, Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. as well as in
the literary societies. During our junior year the histronic ability
of the members of our class was ably demonstrated in the pro-
duction of "Clarence." However, our ability lies not only along
intellectual, dramatic, and social lines, but along those of ath-
letics as well. We have been well represented in football, basket-
ball, and track.
Looking back upon our four years stay at McKendree, there
are few changes we would make in our history as a class were it
within our power to do so.

The Junior Hall of Fame
Who's who in Junior Hall of Fame, we will now to you relate.
Before we leave our gayety to the class of '28.
Somewhere in the future, in the journalistic mill.
As a world renowned sport's writer, you will see our Guy Magill.
Lebanon sends out Dorothy Dee to make our class more fair.
A certain diamond tells us she'll be Mrs. "Bob'' Adair.
Photography is his business: they say that he's some talker
About his little studio. "Buy pictures from Walker."
She came to us a simple Reed, a sunny voice had she.
Now she sings with Sawyer, a duet for life — "do. mi."
Next comes a Noble one. an ad-man. yes. that's right.
A ready smile, a bachelor: his other name's McKnight.
Swift as wind in basketball: all the rooters thrill.
To see the super-playing of our hero — Mayo Magill.
Little is seen of Harry Brown in the way of outward show.
By kindly deeds and words he impresses us. you know.
Verna Andrews is the queen of intellectual fields.
By innate sweetness and faith her influence she wields.
Evelyn McNeely is a debater with an analytic mind.
Gracious, friendly, patient, yet, she surely is a find.
Her smile is bright, her heart is true, her jest is free from malice
The old home town is proud of her. and so are we — 'tis Alice.
All the members of our crew like the pleasant mien
And the sweet spirit of Miss Evelyn McGeehon.
With mind aflame with burning thoughts which issue forth in rhymes,
His gaze is fixed, his jaw is set; 'tis Daniel penning lines.
Do you remember one who from life great joy does sip.
Who has a lovely tenor voice? Of course, you do — 'tis Rip.
Our chief editor has an envious line which really can't be beat.
He's gifted with a voice quite rare. We have high hopes for "Peet."
For a quiet willing worker. Ed Hopper has no peers.
A smile for all and everything; the future holds no fears.
Demure as shrinking violets: the library is her home.
By dint of honest labor, we remember Ruth DuComb.
With beaming face and an outstretched hand, he greets both great and sr
For dispelling gloom and sorrow, there's no one like John Hall.
Since music — especially jazz — morbid thoughts does drown.
To be a great musician is the aim of Harold Brown.
Mild in spirit, quiet, demure, in our hearts she leaves
A tender feeling and respect for the name of Jesselyn Grieve.
A rising pedagog we have next to present to you.
Some say that he's a painter, but Grupe says taint true.
Maurice McHenry and Wendel Brown are steadfastly true blue.
They live outside McKendree's Hill. We like their point of view.
A member of the Male Quartette, among singers he's a pearl.
For everyone sure likes to hear the melodious voice of Earl.
Fleming is a minister. Hearts with hope he oft does fill.
While Gardner is a student from the city of Belleville.
He hurls a mighty javelin, king of the spear is Ray.
Good fortune smiles on him for he wins in every fray.
Captain of every sport, his luck will never stop.
He has a variety of names, but he's better known as "Wop."
Who's who in Junior Hall of Fame we have to you revealed,
And now. oh class of '28. our sceptre you may wield.

The School of Music offers a four-year course of study leading to the degree
of Bachelor of Music. Certificates are also granted in piano, organ, voice, violin,
and public school music.
Judging by the increased enrollment in all departments, the past year has
been a successful one for the School of Music and Expression. Semi-monthly
afternoon recitals, several public recitals, and a faculty recital have been given.
A branch studio in piano has been opened in Mascoutah as well as piano and
violin studios in O'Fallon.
Students have the opportunity of receiving good training by participating
in the Glee Clubs, Band, or Orchestra. An operetta, "The Lass of Limerick
Town," was successfully presented in Lebanon by the Glee Clubs under the
direction of Miss Pauline Harper. The McKendree Quartette and Glee Clubs
presented programs in adjoining towns, including a broadcasting program from
St. Louis. Ten recitals in organ and piano were given in various towns of
Southern Illinois. "The Taming of the Shrew" was one of several plays given
under the direction of Miss Olive Patmore.
Students are fortunate in being able to attend concerts by great artists which
are frequently given in St. Louis.

Many new numbers have been added to the repertoire this season. These,

The activities of the Band began with the opening of the football season.
Appearing at all local games and accompanying the team on some of its trips
away from McKendree, it added materially to the enthusiastic spirit so evident
during every gridiron battle.
With its members in appropriate uniforms it headed the Home-Coming
parade and appeared in concert at various times throughout that day.
A number of other local engagements have proved the Band to be a real
live musical organization.

The Treble Clef Club, under the direction of Miss Pauline Harper, is

The club was organized in the early fall, and work was carried on in the
same manner as in a regular class, one credit hour being given each semester.
The Treble Clef Club joined the Men's Glee Club in a rehearsal once a
week, and the combined clubs gave several programs during the year. Among
these was a broadcasting program from station WSBF in St. Louis. The two
clubs also appeared before the public in Lebanon on April Oth when they pre-

Numerous programs, which include the broadcasting from St. Louis, the
concert at Madison, Illinois, and the light opera. "The Lass of Limerick Town."

The McKendree Quartette
The McKendree Male Quartette has now been in tact for
three years. During this time it has appeared all over Southern
Illinois taking the fame of McKendree wherever it has gone. It
has made for itself, in these three years, an enviable reputation as
an organization giving high-class and enjoyable entertainments.
The quartette is an ensemble of which the College is justly
proud. Each member of the organization has a pleasing, well-
trained voice which blends beautifully with those of the others.
The members of the quartette are also versatile. Besides being
able to do his part in the group, each member is a capable soloist
executing with charm the music in his vocal range.
This stellar ensemble has been sent out by the president for
two successive summer seasons as an advertising agency for the
College. The increased enrollment has been due in part to their
During the school term, the quartette is in much demand
in and out of town. Hundreds of entertainments and formal
programs have be;n given by the quartette since its organization.
It has also broadcasted from St. Louis.
The personnel has remained unchanged for three years.
The members are as follows: Harold M. Brown, Centralia.
Illinois, first tenor; Kenneth C. Rippel. Moberly, Missouri, sec-
ond tenor; Earl Hussong, Woodriver, Illinois, first bass; and
Lewis V. Peterson, Mt. Vernon, second bass.

The Press Club
With the close of the 1925-1926 school year, the McKendree Review, stu-
dent weekly newspaper of the College, completes its fifth year on the campus.
As its slogan. "Devoted to the interests of McKendree College." implies, the Re-
view has for its aim the advancement of McKendree's cause. However, it is
a true student publication, and it is permitted to operate with a minimum of
The McKendree Review is published by the Press Club, an organization
whose membership is placed on a competitive basis. Any student is eligible
for membership in the club after samples of his work have been submitted and
satisfactorily passed upon by the faculty advisor and the editor-in-chief.
To persons interested in journalism as a life profession, the Review offers
an excellent opportunity to secure practical experience which will be of value
to them in later years. Members of the staff have, in the past, successfully
entered the field of journalism after the completion of their college careers.
Miss Zella V. Brown, of the English Department, has. through the past
school year, held the office of faculty advisor for the Review. P. E. Schuwerk
and St. Clair Harris served as editor and business manager respectively during
the 1925-1926 school term. As both of these men graduate with the class
of '26, a new editor and a new business manager will be chosen next year.
The office of the Review, which was provided by last year's staff, is located
on the first floor of the Chapel Building. The major portion of the publication
work is done in this office, and a file, which consists of copies of all numbers
of the Review which date back to the founding of the paper, are kept in
A banquet for members of the staff is provided each year and some authority
on journalism addresses the staff members at that time. The Review is a
member of the Illinois College Press Association and is represented each year
at meetings of that organization.
Student subscriptions to the McKendree Review are included in the regu-
lar fees paid each semester. In this way every student automatically becomes a
subscriber for the paper upon matriculating in the College. Through the
columns of the Review, former students as well as other friends of the institution
are enabled to keep in touch with "Old McKendree."

The Student Association was organized in 1921. Its purpose is to cen-
tralize all student activities: to stimulate enthusiasm in behalf of the College,
and to give support to any student or group of students representing the College.
Any student who is regularly enrolled automatically becomes a member of the
The Student Association has charge of the chapel exercises each Friday
morning. After disposing of any business which concerns the student body,
interesting and entertaining programs are provided by individual students or
organizations of the College. The Association assists materially in formulating
and carrying out the Annual Inter-Scholastic and Home-Coming Day programs.
Philosophian Literary Society
The record established by the Philosophian Literary So-
ciety has been an enviable one. The year of her organization.
1837, marks her as the oldest literary society west of the Alle-
Since 1837, she has sent her members into every honorable
calling. In politics, religion, teaching, medicine, banking, and
law, Philos have always led the way. L. Y. Sherman. Charles
S. Deneen, and Frank Hereford, all eminent men. have sat in
the Senate of the United States. Great editors from the ranks
of the Philo are: John Locke Scripps. a founder of the Chi-
cago Tribune: William E. Hyde, formerly editor of the St.
Louis Republic, and Isaac N. Higgins. at one time editor of the
San Francisco Morning Call. Judges William M. Farmer, and
Charles S. Zane, Philo will always remember with pride.
The purpose of the Society, as stated in the original consti-
tution, was "the mutual improvement of its members in ora-
torical attainments, and scientific and literary pursuits." In ad-
dition to this, Philos have always enjoyed a spirit of good fel-
lowship, fostered by the Society. From the aims above stated,
Philo has never drifted.
On College Hill, as well as in the outside world, Philo
has achieved her share of honors. In exhibitions, as in the
Bryan Essay Contest, she has shown her efficient training. This
year, the members have been trying to maintain the high stand-
ard that has been developed in the past.
Philo will continue to send out her great men into the
walks of life, and her men will always strive to work toward
the motto engraved in her star. "Detur Digniori."

The Clionian Literary Society
The fourteen girls who in 1869 founded the Clionian
Literarv Society, started a work which has proved of inestimable
value to the girls of McKendree College. Through these many
vears Clio has been providing for young women a type of
intellectual training which no other college organization offers
The purpose of Clio is to give its members literary train-
ing of the practical type which every girl needs in this age.
It also affords social and moral advantages by bringing the girls
of the school closer together and developing in them a spirit
of friendliness and cooperation.
Since nearly every girl of the College is a member of Clio,
the year 1925-1926 has been a prosperous and active one for
Regular meetings are held every Friday evening, and once
a month occurs the Open Session to which everyone is invited.
On December eleventh. Clio entertained at its annual ban-
quet, one of the important social functions of the year, which
is especially enjoyed by the former Clionians who return for

Platonian Literary Society
From a small band of sixteen men, who in 1849 estab-
lished the Platonian Literary Society, the organization has
grown to a large and influential body on and off the campus.
As the years have gone by, hundreds of men have passed through
the period of training in Plato and have gone out into the world
better prepared for life by the practice and training received
within her classic walls.
Realizing the value of extra-curricular activities to the de-
velopment of a foursquare man, men have naturally turned to
literary work as the best possible means of development out-
side of their regular scholastic pursuits. It has ever been the
foremost aim of Plato to develop men to the highest plane
of literary efficiency.
Perhaps never in the history of the Society has there been
a keener interest manifested in the regular Friday meetings than
has been shown this year. Here each week men match their
wits in heated debates and receive training in parliamentary drill.
There is constant practice in the organization and delivery of
speeches. Through he medium of impromptu speeches men
learn to think quickly and to make use of their general fund
In order that the members may not become too serious, an
element of humor is frequently introduced to add spice to the
Side by side with the literary work, Platonians have de-
veloped the spirit of fraternity. The aim is to make the Society
something more than a Friday night meeting. The members
are active throughout the week, taking prominent parts in all
student activities and constantly striving for a bigger and better

The Illinois Theta Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary forensic
society, was established at McKendree College in the spring of 1924 with ten
Pi Kappa Delta has 1 1 2 chapters in the United States, and students win-
ning forensic honors at McKendree College are thus given national recognition.
Membership in the organization is open to those who have represented their
college in a recognized intercollegiate oratorical contest or debate.
The Southern Illinois-Southeast Missouri Oratorical Association, organized
in 1925 under the direction of the Illinois Theta Chapter, met again at Mc-
Kendree College, where six colleges were represented. Two classes, one for
men and one for women, were held in the contest which took place in the after-
noon and evening of April 16.1926. Each college sent representatives to the
contest in oratory and extemporaneous speaking.
In December, 1925, McKendree added distinction to her forensic activities
by gaining admission to the State Oratorical Association.
In debates the women's teams met teams from Greenville and Shurtleff.
The men's teams likewise debated teams from these colleges. The men's negative
team also met a team from the State Teachers' College of Cape Girardeau, Mis-
souri, and the men's affirmative team met the negative team of St. Louis Uni-
versity. The question used by both men and women was the Pi Kappa Delta
debate question: "Resolved, that the United States Constitution should be
amended to give Congress power to regulate Child Labor."
The debating teams were as follows:

The Coaching Staff
Coach Glenn F. Filley in his first year as mentor of the Purple athletics has
won the respect and confidence of the entire student body and the friends of the
During his four years as a student at Missouri Wesleyan. he played under
the direction of Earl A. Davis, whom he succeeded as coach of the Bear Cats
a year ago. While in school at Wesleyan. Coach Filley was chosen captain of
the All-Conference football team, and also captain of the Varsity track and
basketball teams. He coached high school athletics two years at Grand Island,
Nebraska, and last year his track team won the state championship.
All through the past season, purple teams have ranked high in the Con-
ference and have attained their positions under the direction of our coach who
takes a firm stand for clean play and clean athletics. He gets the most from
his teams, also.
Much of the success of the season is due to the work of John Rogers, who
has been assistant coach. "Jack" has played the game and can tell others
how to play it. We are afraid we will lose him next year, but we are sure
that some team will profit by his coaching.

At the opening of college last fall, Coach Filley found that
only seven letter men had returned to school. However, the
squad settled down to hard work and, as the time for the first
game drew near, the prospects at the McKendree camp became
The first game of the season was with the strong Knox
College eleven who had been runners-up to the Bear Cats in the
conference race the previous year. The Siwash handed the
Purple their first and only conference defeat in two years. Al-
though this defeat cost McKendree the title, it served to put the
team in a fighting spirit and no other team in the "Little Nine-
teen" scored against them during the remainder of the season.
The next two games were with non-conference teams and,
although both were lost, the team displayed a more consistent
attack and a stronger defense than before. The Rolla School of
Mines, represented by one of the strongest teams ever turned out
at that school, showed a powerful scoring machine and won a
The following week the Springfield Teachers won a hard
game from the Filley-men at Springfield. The Teachers led 7-0
at the end of the third period, then, by taking advantage of the
breaks of the game, raised the final score to 19-0.
Lincoln College was the first conference foe to fall before
the Bear Cats. The Filley-men scored four touchdowns and
three tries-for -point to score a 27-0 victory, thus starting the
drive which gave them fourth place in the final standings.
The gridiron opponent for the Third Annual Home-
Coming was the Macomb Normal team. Early in the game the
Purple scored on a 60-yard return of a punt. Macomb had
plenty of fight and "pep," but the Bear Cats played their best
game of the season up to that time, scoring 21 points, while they
held the Teachers scoreless.
Shurtleff College, as was expected had a fast team which
offered strong competition at all times. The game was played
in a sea of mud, and, after taking a 13-0 lead at the half, Mc-
Kendree was content to play safe and hold their lead.
Coach Omer's eleven from Carthage played the last home
game of the season which proved a fitting climax. The Purple
were striving to keep their record of no defeats in three years
on Hupes' Field intact. The "fighting spirit" and speed of the
Bear Cats proved to balance the weight of the Carthage squad
and until the closing minutes of the game the score was dead-
locked, 0-0. A drop kick from the 30-yard line in the last two
minutes gave McKendree a well-earned victory, 3-0.
The final conference tilt of the season was played at Car-
bondale with the S. I. N. U. team. Injuries received in the
Carthage game weakened the locals and only after a hard fought
game were the Teachers beaten 6-0. This game was the fifth
straight conference victory for the Bear Cats, during which time
they made seventy points while they held their opponents score-
On Turkey-day the Filley-men journeyed by Fords to
Cape Girardeau where they battled to a scoreless tie in a driv-
ing rain. Many times the Missourians were forced back and it
seemed that the Bear Cats would score, but the wet ball in-
variably caused a fumble. The final whistle found the ball in
the middle of the field.
Since only two of the men receiving letters this year will
be lost through graduation, the prospects for a second conference
championship next year are bright. With the aid of the veterans
who will return to college next fall and a number of freshmen
to choose from. Coach Filley will have another formidable ag-
gregation out scrambling with the other members of the con-
ference for the peak of the final standing.

With four letter men back from last year's championship
basketball squad around which to build a team. Coach Filley
placed a fast combination on the floor. Of the sixteen games
played during the season, ten were victories for McKendree.
Eight of the contests scheduled were with conference teams and
five of these games were annexed by the local quintet.
The first game of the season was with the team from Scott
Field. The aviators failed to be a serious threat at any time
during the game. The Purple mentor used three different teams
in the contest and tried out several combinations.
Concordia Seminary was the next opponent and, due to
the fact that several of our basketball men were out for football
and not accustomed to the floor, the Lutherans nosed out a
35-30 victory. The Bear Cats were doped to be easy victims,
but they soon found their stride and forced the game along at
top speed. Three times during the closing minutes of the game
the score was tied, but several long shots gave Concordia the
heavy end of the score.
McKendree defeated the First M. E. Church team of Belle-
ville in a listless game the next week. Coach Filley sent four-
teen players into the game so that he might get some idea of the
combination to be used in the conference games.
The Rolla Miners were the next victims of the Bear
Cats when McKendree played there the first of a four-game series
in Missouri. The Miners played a hard and fast game and
were leading 15-14 in the half. McKendree opened with a burst
of speed during the last half taking a lead which held their op-
ponents for a 26-21 victory.
The following night the Bear Cats played the first of
two games with the Springfield Teachers. Both teams played
stellar ball with the lead changing hands often. In the last
half Magill who had been scoring heavily was disqualified, and
the Teachers ran wild during the last few minutes to a lead of
43-22 at the end of the game. The second game was dropped
to Springfield on the following night by the score of 25-22.
An even break on the trip was made when Drury was
trounced by the Filley-men 45-21. This game was not as hard
as was expected because of the failure of Drury to break through
the Purple defense.
The Lincoln College team was the first conference foe of
the Bear Cats, and suffered one of the three reverses they met
during the season. Although five reserves went into the game
during the last few minutes. Lincoln failed to gain on them. The
final result was in favor of McKendree.
The game with Shurtleff on the local floor was annexed
by the Purple quintet with little trouble. The following week
McKendree went to Shurtleff and won the second game from the
Pioneers by the score of 29-16. These two victories gave the
Bear Cats a good chance for the championship of Southern
Illinois which they eventually won. Brown's speed and basket-
shooting were strong factors in both of these triumphs.
A three-game invasion up-state found the Bear Cats in a
basket-shooting slump and. although they out-played their op-
ponents, they lost all three games. The first game of the trip
was dropped to Lincoln. The Railsplitters featured with long
shots, and. when the final whistle blew, the Purple were forced
to accept defeat.
On the night following the defeat at Lincoln. Macomb
nosed out a close victory over Coach Filley's squad. This game
was hard fought and neither team had a safe lead at any time.
Jack played a brilliant game and led his team in scoring. The
final result was 20-16 in favor of Macomb.
After out-playing Carthage during the early part of the game,
the Purple five lost, 30-29. The local team had a twelve-point
lead at the half, but the "jinx" would not let them win on the
The losing streak was broken after a thrilling contest with
S. I. N. U. It was any one's game until the last play when
McKendree held to a 26-24 lead.
Rolla found Carter and Kostoff too willing to break up an
attack when the two teams met the second time, and the
Purple administered them a set back of 3 3-10.
The final game of the season was with Carbondale. By win-
ning it, McKendree won the Southern Illinois title. The Teach-
ers proved more invincible than had been expected and only after
a hard struggle were the Bear Cats victors by a 23-17 score.
JOHN ISOM. "Wop." Captain
Although forced out of most of the
°ames by an injury received in football.
"Wop" showed his old skill and speed
at guard while in the game. He will be

has been consistent and dependable.
"Mac" is a junior and
a three-letter man in basket-
ball. His speed and his ac-
curate eye for the basket won
or him the place of high-
point man of the season.
MT. CARMEL. ILL.
"Hurley" played a fast
floor game and was good for
points at a critical time. This
was his first vear to receive
a basketball letter.
Lloyd Pettit. "Speed"
"Speed" is a senior this year. His
position was at center where he played
a steady, hard game. This was his first
"M" received on the basketball floor.
Review for 1925
Only two dual meets were scheduled for the track squad last year and
both proved to be victories for the Bear Cats. A dual meet was held with Shurt-
leff, and the local team piled up 91 y^ points to 38 x /i for the Pioneers.
The second dual meet was with Ewing College where first honors were
annexed by the Purple.
In the state meet at Galesburg, Goode broke his own record in the javelin
and placed second in the discus throwing. He also carried off second honors
with the javelin at the Drake Relays and third at the National Meet in Chicago.
Other events at the state meets in which McKendree placed near the top
were the pole vault, relay, and 100-yard dash.
With seven letter men from last year's track squad again in college a
successful season is expected during the 1926 season.
For the first time in three years McKendree College had a baseball team
last season. Prospects seemed good at first, but a rather disastrous season re-
sulted. Although only one game was captured by the Purple baseball team
and seven were lost, the members of the squad had the pep and dash which
gave their opponents no rest.
A team is being organized at the present time and games are being booked
with nearby schools. At precent games are scheduled with Eden and Concordia

The Eighth Annual Interscholastic
Six records were broken in the track and field events of the Eighth Annual
Interscholastic, which was held at McKendree on May 2, 1925. This is one fact
which points to the ever increasing success of this annual event.
Competition for the highest honors among the thirty-six high schools of
Southern Illinois that were present was very keen. In the track meet Eldorado
led victoriously with twenty-four and one-half points, nosing out Staunton
by the bare margin of one-half point. Mt. Carmel obtained third place with
a total of thirteen and one-half points. Eldorado also won the mile relay in
the record-breaking time of three minutes, thirty-six and four-fifths seconds.
The following is a list of the events with the winners of each:
Shot-put: Breidenstein, Eldorado — 47 feet 7 inches.
220-yard low hurdle: Votaw. Mt. Carmel — 27.4 seconds.
Broad jump: H. Murphy, Eldorado-Votaw, Mt. Carmel — 22 feet 3 3 4
Mile run: Church, Lebanon — 4 minutes 50.2 seconds.
Discus: Arniciar, Staunton — 126 feet 10 inches.
Pole Vault: Aue, Staunton — 11 feet.

In the straight sets of the tennis tournament, Centralia won from Granite
City in the finals, and Mascoutah defeated East St. Louis in the singles.
Centralia also won the intellectual meet of the Interscholastic with eighteen
points while O'Fallon and Eldorado tied for second and third places with six

Senior Class and Faculty of 1876
McKendree in 1876 was far different from the college we now know. There were two
hundred and twenty-five students in attendance, but only one hundred and twenty-six were college
students. The rest were academic pupils. The students lived in private homes and bought
their own wood for fire. They also had to purchase oil for their lamps. The expenses for
one year, at that time, amounted to about $2 80 — a high price for that time.
Of the class of fifty years ago, nine were graduated from the scientific course. At that
time the college offered but two curriculas — the classical and the scientific. The Greek motto
of the class is indicative of their age. Translated it means "Everything for God."
Reverend John W. Locke. D. D.. President and Professor of Mental and Moral Philosophy.
Reverend Oliver V. Jones. A. M.. Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy.
Samuel H. Deneen. A. M.. Professor of Latin Language. Literature, and History.
Reverend William F. Swahlen. A. M.. Professor of Greek Language. Literature, and
Reverend E. E. Edwards. A. M., Professor of Natural History and Physics.

The basketball class tournament each year is the feature of the contests
between the different class teams. The games this year were close and drew large
crowds. For the third consecutive year the Class of '27 won the tournament
when they nosed out the Sophomores by one point.
The schedule played during the tournament and the scores are:
Freshmen 14 Sophomores 30
Juniors 39 Seniors 17
Sophomores 44 Seniors 15
Juniors 25 Freshmen 19
Seniors 15 Freshmen 19
Juniors 14 Sophomores 13
A scrub tournament composed of eight teams from the student body was
also held. This was won by the "Tom Cats." a team composed of Lebanon
The tug-o-war between freshmen and upper-classmen proved to be a de-
cided upset. The upper-classmen were strong favorites to pull the "Freshies"
through the pond, but as they were exulting in their apparent victory — some-
thing happened and the one hundred and first class dragged the upper-classmen
through the pond.
Before the end of the year a number of other intra-mural sport events
will take place. Among these are the Athletic Carnival, an inter-class track
meet, and probably a tennis tournament.

McKendree College was founded in 1828. It is the oldest college with
a record of continuous operation west of the Alleghany Mountains. Dur-
ing the Civil War many colleges were forced to close, but McKendree not
only served the educational need but also had a regiment in the Northern Army
known as the McKendree Regiment.
The present campus consists of twenty acres. Thirty-nine different
varieties of trees, some of which are a part of the original forest, offer shade and
add to the natural beauty of the place. The College is located in the highest
part of Lebanon.
There are nine buildings on the campus. Views of six of these buildings
are given in the front portion of this annual. Through the generosity of the
late Dr. Benjamin Hypes of St. Louis. McKendree has an enclosed athletic field
which includes a two hundred and twenty yard straight-a-way, a quarter-mile
cinder track, a baseball diamond, and a football gridiron.
McKendree confers the degrees of A. B. and B. S. in scholastic work. In
conjunction with the college is a splendid Musical Conservatory which confers
degrees in either musical theory or public school music. There are four-year
courses given in piano, voice, and organ music.
The student activities are numerous and varied. There are literary so-
cieties for both men and women. The student body is organized and regulates,
in the main, the activities of the student body. This organization meets every
Friday morning. There are social fraternities and other organizations which
offer a student nearly all the forms of activity which he may desire.
At the next meeting of the North Central Association it is expected that
McKendree will be admitted into full membership. This year graduates are
to be given North Central standing. McKendree is a "B" class college, but the
entrance of McKendree into this Association will give her graduates a standing
which has long been desired.
