THE COLLEGE 



THE McKENDREAN, 1931 



Tte Chapel and the Bell 



OF all the buildings on McKendree's campus possibly the most interesting is the 
chapel building, the second oldest structure on the grounds, whose tall clock- 
tower is to be seen as a landmark in the surrounding community. 

The present building was completed in 1857, taking the place of the original all- 
purpose building which was destroyed by iire in 1856, during the third term of Dr. 
Peter Akers as president of McKendree. The chapel auditorium is approximately forty- 
five by seventy feet in size and was, at the time of construction, the largest hall of its 
kind in the state. It was heated by two large stoves until 1898 when the heating plant 
was installed. The original seats in the auditorium were long moveable benches with 
backs, one of which may be still seen in the balcony. The hall has a seating capacity of 
slightly over four hundred. 

Possibly the most interesting portion of the chapel is the belfry that mounts to a 
considerable height above the roof, for it contains the historic bell that is rich in tradi- 
tions which are dear to the hearts of McKendreans. The spire rises one hundred and 
forty-five feet above the walk in front of the building, and is surmounted by a broken 
weather-vane. Originally the arm of the vane was nine feet, and the gilded globe on 
which the vane rests is three feet in diameter. For many years it was an annual prob- 
lem for the students in the trigonometry class to measure the height of the spire. 

Until recent years most of the history connected with the bell was traditional, hut 
a record left by the Rev. Thomas A. Eaton, a graduate of McKendree revealed some 
interesting facts. According to the record the bell was brought to St. Louis in the 
eighteen fifties by some Santa Fe traders who had found it in a deserted Roman Cath- 
olic Mission somewhere in New Mexico. Dates and names on the bell show that it was 
cast in Spain in the eighth century and recast in the fourteenth. It was brought to 
Florida in the sixteenth century and by some means found its way to New Mexico. It 
was recast when it was brought to St. Louis and from there it was taken to the State 
Fair at Centralia, Illinois, in the fall of 1858 for exhibition and sale. At this fair it 
was purchased for McKendree College by Dr. Cobleigh, then president, and Professor 
Risdon M. Moore, instructor in mathematics. It was placed in the tower of the new 
chapel, and has since been in continual service. It has called seventy-two graduating 
classes to graduating exercises, and will evidently fulfill that service for years to come. 

On two occasions the chapel bell has been rung without ceasing all night. The first 
occasion for such a performance was the receipt of the first $100,000 of the endowment 
fund in April, 1905, during the administration of Dr. M. H. Chamberlain. The second 
night of celebration came during March of this year, when McKendree was admitted to 
the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.

McKendree Loyalty 



A college 'mid plains is standing, standing there from olden days, 

A pioneer of learning, 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 always hold thee true and wise and right. 

Honor Purple and the White, 

And for victory we'll always fight, 

Till we win for old McK. 

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 service without bound. 
Then let us raise our voices, until the plains resound.

CHo; Y.W. Cabinet '31; Review Staff '31; Sigma Zeta; McKendrean Staff '31. 
Brilliant wit, intelligence, and pleasing personality combine to make Edith one of 
the most respected and likeable girls on the campus. She keeps them guessing, but those 
who know her know a real friend. 

"To \now, to esteem, to love, and then to part, 
Ma\e up life's tale to many a feeling heart." (Coleridge) 

~E. H.

Cabinet '28; Debate '30,'31; Secy.-Treas. Clark Hall; Secy.-Treas. Junior Class '30, 
Senior Class '31. 

Laura was well known for her pep and vivacity. Whether at work or at play, she 
was always anxious and eager to do her best. These traits of personality have won for 
her many friends. 

"Tlie success of any school, family, or individual depends largely 
upon its friends. May we McKendreans always he friends." — L.Y.

Pres. Junior Class '31. 

Wilma Nell's versatility is evidenced by her wide range of activities. She was an 
honor student, and has a magnetic personality which has had a great influence on her 
success in college." 

"The world goes up and the world goes down. 
And the sunshine follows the rain; 
And yesterday's sneer and yesterday's frown 
Can never come hac\ again." 

— W. N. L.

Nell Carmichael, A.B., E. St. Lams 

Pres. Societas Classicas; Nature Cluh; Y.W. Cabinet '31; Education Cluh, 
Brilliancy is Nell's most outstanding trait, for she is strictly an "A" student. Al- 
though she has not lived on the campus, and had opportunities to enter into many 
activities, she has shown herself to be an earnest worker where chance afforded. 
"May that indescribable sentiment that hinds our hearts in love for McKendree 
enrich our lives and ma\e us strong, cheerful, and loyal to that which is best." 

— N. C.

As a musician, a scholar, an ardent worker, and a friend, Vera will ever be re- 
membered. Although always busy, she never refused to lend her support to every 
worthy undertaking. 

"Couldst thou iyi vision see thyself the man God meant, 
Thou never more coiddst he the man thou art — content." 

— V.W. 

MiRZA Earth, A. B., Keysport, III. 

Greenville College,'28,'29. 
Very quiet and demure, Mirza delved deep into her studies and received grades 
which justified her efforts. Upon more intimate acquaintance she was real jolly, and 
exhibited reserve only at the proper time. 

"I have only spent two years on IVlcKendree's campus, hut it will always he 
to my deepest regret that I could not have spent much more time here." 

— M. B.

Debate '30; Pres. Glee Club; Quartet '31; "The Robin Woman"; "The Pirates of 
Penzance"; Class Secy. '29; Pi Kappa Delta; French Club; Clio. 

Talented in music, "Dink" has served as an able musical representative for Mc- 
Kendree during her entire stay here. She was ever a zealous leader and worker in every 
line of her activity. 

"I have a perfectly good place in Old Main that III leave to the persons that 
can prove to me that they really need a place to spend their leisure hours." 

— E.M. 

Caroline Schafer, A.B., Mascoutah, III. 
Clio; State Oratorical Contest '31; "The Fool"; Review Staff '31. 
Caroline's ability in reading and oratory has made her a popular and interesting 
entertainer. A ready smile and lovable disposition ever characterized her presence. 
"Just as all McKendree graduates, I feel that there is an indestructible cord 
holding me in thoughts and interests to the college. I value the friendships I 
have made and cherish the hope that these may last throughout my lifetime." 

— C. S. 

Violet Taylor, A.B., Lebanon, III. 
Societas Classica; Education Club. 
Unusually quiet, but nevertheless energetic, Violet has been a good student in 
Latin as well as in her minor studies. Her reserve has not been detrimental, for to those 
with whom she is associated, she is a real friend. 

"The end is almost here — but 'All's well that ends well' So here's to the 
future of dear old McKendree, her students, her graduates, and her faculty." 

—V. T.

McKendree Review '30; Philo; Pres. Glee Cluh; Nature Club '28; "As You Like It." 

Sande was always loyal to all — McKendree, his activities, his fellow students. He 

has proved himself to be a capable leader by his splendid performance m his several 

capacities, and by his congenial personality. 

"Here's to McKendree! May her future existence he characterized by steady 
growth and prosperous development, and may she continue to foster the 
same high ideals which have mar\ed her progress in the past." — V. S.

A scholastic record, athletic ability, and a remarkable character are qualities that 
have made Dan a true McKendrean. His activities, varied as they were, v/ere every 
one entered into with the same zeal and enthusiasm, which is typical of all his conduct. 

"I shall never forget the years I spent at McKendree and the friends I \yiew 
there. May the future bring further honors to the old school." — D. H. 

Howard Rawlinson, B.S., Mt. Vernon, III. 
Pres. Unholy Four; Pres. Carnegie Hall '31; Philo; Track '29,'31; Vice-Pres. Stu- 
dent Association; Mathematics Club; "Romeo and Juliet"; Physics Assistant. 

With a natural inclination toward scientific work, Howard has been right at home 
in the physics laboratory. His good nature, his famous warbling, and his poetical pro- 
ductions are inseparable from remembrance of him. 

'Tour years in McKendree have served to create bonds of frieridship and 
memories which I will ever cherish. May McKendree coyitinue to progress, 
and may the friendships created never be bro\en." — H. R.

leyan '26 -'30. 

Coming to McKendree only for his last year, "Chick" became quite a McKendrean 
in a short time. His athletic ability was soon made evident. He is a jolly fellow, and 
has made many friends. 

"Among my souvenir memories, there will always he dear to me those friends 
.made through class wor}{, social life, and athletics at McKendree. I regret 
that I had hut one year to spend with her." — C. S. 

John Montgomery, A.B., Lehanon,Ill. 
Philo; Bachelors; Pres. Y. M. C. A. '29; Nature Club; Pres. Oxford Club '28; 
"The Fool." 

With a character just as clean and beautiful as is his personal appearance, John is 
a McKendrean of whom we are proud. He has already chosen the ministry for his life 
work, and, judging from his past services, he will no doubt be highly successful. 
"Some men are horn great; some achieve greatness, some have greatness thrust 
upon them.' My desire is to achieve with the henediction of McKendree 
College upon me." — J. M. 

Nelson Grote, A.B., Hoyleton, 111. 
Pres. Oxford Club '31; Central Wesleyan '28 -'30. 

In Grote we have a sincere student and student pastor. Having never lived on the 
campus, and being quiet and unassuming as he is, he has a rather small circle of intimate 
acquaintances, but he is regarded with the highest esteem by all who know him. 
"Methusaleh said, 'The first hundred years are the hardest.' May McKendree 
realize a future more prosperous and more promising than her colorful past. 
May her students and alumni always he ready to spea\ a good word for the 
old school which has meant so much to them." — N. G.

History. 

Steve has used his unusual abilities as "scribe" and artist for McKendree interests 
during all four years. He has already made quite a name for himself m the journalistic 
world, and has promise of a bright future. 

''i:]\re.e. years as publicity director for McKendree have given me ayi oppor- 
tunity to become intimate with ynany of the traditions of the hill, and I can- 
not help but predict a great future, culturally and athletically, for the 
institution." — S. T.

Basketball Center '30,'31. 

Being one of the best athletes McKendree has known, little can be said concerning 
"Fu2,^ie's" athletic career which is not already known. His remarkable qualities of 
leadership, along with his agreeable personality are evidenced in his services as captain 
of both football and basketball. 

"I'm leaving to 'A. E.' my place as captain of football next year, and he can 
add as many to his team as he wants to from these new letter men here. I'm 
for you, 'A. E.,' have a big winning team." — C. H.

Pres. Alpha Psi Omega; Plato; Pi Kappa Delta; Glee Club; Cross-country '30,'31; 
"As You Like It"; "Lightnin' "; "Shanewis"; Vice-Pres. Junior Class, Senior Class, 
Carnegie Hall. 

Though small of stature, "Husky" has made his presence felt on the campus for 
the past few years. He was active in many lines showing much versatility. He is a 
Latin major, and leaves McKendree "cum laude magna." 

"I am convinced that the added responsibilities of the small colleges tend to 
increase confidence, character, and ability in the more timid students, there- 
by creating a more intelligent, more capable, citizenship." — E. D.

McCoy Curry, B.S., Pakstme, lU.

Glee Club; Review Staff '29/30; Secy. Student Association. 

Who can think of a meal in Pearson's Hall or an interrupted dream without think- 
ing of Curry? His apparently cynical attitude is merely on the surface, and to know 
him well is to know a really jovial fellow and a sincere worker. 

"The days of parting have come. Friends made in the last four years will 
travel different paths, maybe never to cross again. Tet 1 shall carry cherish- 
ed memories of the old Ahna Mater and the friendships that have been 
formed." — E. M. C. 

Frank Epps, A.B., Christie, Va. 
State Normal, North Carolina,'28,'2y; Philo; Nature Cluh; "Sun-Up"; Debate '31. 
Epps, a man who doubtless has more friends and fewer enemies than any other 
person on the campus, cannot be too highly commended for his splendid record while 
here. His general friendly attitude and entertaining manner have been without blemish. 
"Arriving at McKendree in 1929, and realizing I was the only 'AlhAmer- . 
ican in school, I found Dr. Harmon and many other friends and now I am 
an 'All'McKendrean'." — F. E. 



Albert Rode, A.B., Brownstoivn, III. 
Band; Orchestra; Alpha Mu Omega; Plato. 

Apparently very solemn, upon further acquaintance, Albert is found to have gen- 
uine wit and humor. His pleasant disposition and unassuming m.anner have made him 
a friend to everyone. 

"I will ever cherish the memory of McKendree for the friendships that I 
have formed while here. I sincerely hope that McKendree coritmues to 
grow in the development of friendships and moral character in the future 
as it has in the past." — A. R.

Track '29;30;31; Nature Club '27;28;29; Secy. M. Club '31. 

In Gail we have a conscientious worker ni his studies, athletics, on his ministerial 
charge — in every undertaking. His cheery disposition and willingness to serve were 
assets in every phase of his college career. 

"Hail, McKendree! We greet thee as our Alma Mater, and with gladness 
we view thy rapid success. May we always loyal he! McKendree, Hail!" 

~G.H.

•Student Association '30; Nature Club '28; Oxford Club; Pres. Pi Kappa Delta '31; 
Pres. Illinois Intercollegiate Oratorical Association '30. 

Lewis was one of our most prominent students, having ably represented the college 
in the forensic field. He is a booster for all McKendree interests, and is a student 
pastor. Judging from his college activities, his future success is undoubtedly assured. 
"I leave McKendree \nowing that I shall never forget the old college, my 
student days here, and the friendships I made here." — L. H. 



Ernest Crisman, A.B., Columbia, 7s[./. 
Philo; Nature Club '28,'29; "The Fool." 
"Bishop" was always anxious to do anything within his power to boost McKendree 
in every way possible. Philo loses in him a zealous member. He is surely one whose 
interest in McKendree will not die out. 

"Although coming over a thousand miles in order to he a soyi of McKendree, 
I count my four years spent here very profitahle indeed: especially shall I 
rememher and cherish the friendships made here." — E. C.

Walter Morse, B.S., Steamboat Roc\, la. 
Bachelor; Annual Staff '31; Mathematics Assistant '31; Mechanical Drawing As- 
sistant \31; Billings Polytechnic Institute, Billings, Mont., '28,'29,'30. 

"Prof" Morse, as he is affectionately called by his students, has been here only one 
year, but this has been ample time for him to demonstrate his worth. He is not only an 
excellent scholar, but also has commendable traits of friendliness, honesty and reserve. 
"To the old school on the hill; viay we ever be loval to her!" — W. M. 

George Daoit, A.B., Lebarton, III. 
Band; Nature Club '29,'30,\31. 

With high aspirations and genuine earnestness concerning his work, this man has 
proved himself a true scholar. Although his aspect is somewhat more serious than some, 
his wider range of experience has taught him lessons which yet remain for some of us 
to learn. 

"Goodbye, dear old McKendree. May your influence ever continue to en- 
lighten and mspxre your future students so that they may say to all the 
world, ^ All's well with McKendree ." — G. D. 

Whitmore Beardsley, a. B., St. Louis, Mo. 
Alpha Mu Omega; Plato; Band; Orchestra. 

Care-free, desperately in love,but a true adherent to all his affiliations is"Whittey." 
Frankness, wit, and congeniality are characteristics of this lad from the "big city." 
"Call me Whittv."— W. B.

Alpha Psi Omega, Pres. '31; "The New Poor." 

As an impersonator and reader, Lorena was scarcely excelled. Diligent in her 
work, she has been an able scholar, unassuming and reserved, but well liked by all who 
know her. 

"There is something about McKendree which is not foimd in larger schools. 
It is a certain spirit, a certain feeling of intimacy. Every studeyit on the 
campus IS your friend. This has impressed me most of all." — L. K. 

Opal Meehan, A.B., O'Fallon, III. 
Having been with us but one semester, Opal is not very widely known on the 
campus. However, her pleasing personality and friendliness are immediately evident, 
and her splendid past record in the teaching profession points toward a successful 
future. 

"Mav McKendree's store of fine, old traditions continue to he augmented. ' 

— O. M. 

Merle Lang, A.B., Lebanon, III. 
Glee Club; Quartet '27; "Bohemian Girl"; Mathematics Club; Clio. 
With always the same friendly, cooperative spirit, Merle has been an asset in 
every activity with which she has been associated. A good student, a dependable char- 
acter, one with a sincere attitude, she has come to be one of the most respected students 
on our campus. 

"McKendree — she has given us priceless inspiration, education, and associa- 
tions. She's a college to be proud of, and I am glad that I am a McKendrean." 

— M. L.

THE McKENDREAN, 1931 




Charles Reinhardt, B.S., Mascoutah, lU. 
Reinhardt's hit;hest ambition is to hecome a doctor, and all of his efforts while in 
McKendree have been directed toward that end. Charlie has a pleasing personality and 
a lot of friends. 



Elmo McClay, B.S., Oa\vale, lU. 
Philo; Nature Club; Glee Club 
For perseverance, sincerity and reserve, "Red" is among the best representatives of 
the class. His intense interest in scientific fields gives evidence of his ambition. 

"Having spent four years on McKendree's campus in the laboratories, classrooms, 
library and at study, ma\ing new acquaintances, and in general living in the college 
atmosphere, I can say that I have spent four years enjoyably and profitably. May Mc- 
Kendree remain a place for the development of the best." — E.M. 



WiLMER Steinkamp, B.S., Mascoutah, III. 
Steinkamp has not been a particularly prominent figure on the campus, since most 
of his time has been spent in the science laboratories and in Mascoutah, where his chief 
interest seems to be, but, he is welMiked by those who know him. He, too, is diligently 
preparing to enter the medical profession.

Wilson Dorries, B.S., Breese, III. 

Nature Club; Biology Assistant. 

Never talkative, but ever meditative, Dorries is an earnest worker, especially m his 
field, biology. Talented m music, as a saxophone player, he is well known in other 
places as well as here. 

"I have enjoyed and profited bv my four years here, and I intend to he a McKendree 
booster after my graduation." — W. D. 



Pauline Brooks Hortin, A.B., Jerseyville, III. 

Clio; Y.W. C. A. Cabinet '27,'28,'29,'30; Nature Club; Education Club; Review 
Staff '29,\^0 

Although "Brooks" has not been with us during the past term, remembrances 
linger with those who knew her. For dependability, fidelity to all phases of her activities, 
and as a faithful friend, Brooks can't be beaten. 

"May McKendree ever be the embodiment of true friendships and pleasant expe- 
riences, which will cast a glow of rainbow colors over the clouds that may gather in 
our s\ies of the future." — P.B.H.

THE McKENDREAN, 1931 



Tke S^wan Song 



Why must I cry farewell to you, 

Dear Alma Mater, school of mine? 

Why should I sing thus in adieu 

With choking voice, a halting line? 

Why should a tear come to my eye 

When it is time to go away, 

When I must grip dear hands good-bye 

And cannot find a voice to say 

A single word, though millions rise 

To pound the portals of my throat? 

Why should the roll that ribbon ties 

Be laid aside with cap and coat 

And not bring forth glad shouts of praise 

That graduation sets me free? 

Why should I turn from parting ways 

To look and look, and yet not see. 

Because sad tears blot out the charm 

Of seeing friends upon the Hill; 

And then lift high a hand and arm 

In hope that someone sees me still 

And sends a strengthening word of cheer. 

Before I turn with stumbling steps 

To plod a path that now seems drear, 

And tears my heart to deepest depths? 

It is not books and all their stores 

That holds my heart within your arms. 

That locks my voice with iron-clad doors. 

That holds my eyes with magic charms. 

It is not hours at study spent. 

Or facts well-learned, or work well-done, 

Or hard-fought games that came and went, 

Or parties where we had our fun 

That makes each brick within your walls 

A precious stone for future years. 

That makes each board within your halls 

A sight that stirs my soul to tears. 

That makes each tree a living string 

To pull my heart when I depart. 

That makes the grass which greens each spring 

A voice that holds me when I start. 

Nay, Alma Mater, college dear. 

There Ve stronger strands that stay my steps, 

There're friends that I have made while here. 

The friends whose smiles bring joy to me. 

The friends who stay through smooth, through rough. 

The friends I trust, and who trust me, 

Whose hands I cannot grip enough. 

Why, Alma Mater, must I go 

And leave behind what grieves me so? 

— Albert Meyer

THE Student Association has come through with another successful year, and has 
further demonstrated the value of student control of school functions. 

The association is composed of the regularly enrolled students of McKendree. The 
president is elected by vote of the student body on the first Friday of each semester. 
The other officers are selected by the Slate Committee, which is composed of three 
students appointed by the president. This representative student body's purpose is to 
centralize student activities as well as to stimulate McKendree "pep". 

This year's program consists of: Home-coming program, annual football banquet, 
disposition of student business, and many other functions of interest to the entire stu- 
dent body. We are indebted to this organisation for the splendid programs which have 
been presented each week at Student Chapel.

THE Illinois Theta Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary forensic frater- 
nity, was established at McKendree in 1924. The aim of the organization is to en- 
courage intercollegiate forensic relations, as well as to develop the art of public speak- 
ing and argumentation. Last year the organization sponsored a high school debate 
tournament, and is working on other projects to further forensic activity in the state. 

This year two men have achieved the highest degree in debating, that of special 
distinction. They are Clark Lee Allen and Lewis Head, who also holds the degree of 
special distinction in oratory, and is the only McKendrean to hold this degree in both 
orders. Several other members have the degree of honor. 

This year the organization has one of the largest memberships in its history — two 
honorary members and sixteen active members, five of whom were initiated this year

Alpha Psi Omega 



THE Alpha Theta Cast of Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dramatic fraternity, 
was organi^^ed in 1927 with sixteen charter members. At that tmie Miss Olive 
Patmore was the faculty advisor. This fraternity has been one of the most active 
organizations. During the present year two groups of students were initiated into the 
fraternity, one in November, composed of eight caiididates, the other in May, with five 
candidates. In the history of the cast forty have been initiated, with twenty active 
members on the campus at the end of this year. 

The purpose of the order is to promote worth-while dramatics in the colleges and 
universities of our country. The membership of Alpha Psi Omega is rather limited be- 
cause of the strenuous qualifications which must be fulfilled in order to become a 
member. 

In March of this year the Alpha Theta Cast had the pleasure of initiating and 
installing a new cast of Alpha Psi Omega at Shurtleff College. 

The dramatic department has been unusually active during the past term. "The 
New Poor" was presented in November, "The Fool" in January, "His Blue Serge Suit" 
for the Rotary Club in March, and the opera, "Pirates of Penzance" in April. All of 
these were decidedly successful and helped in increasing the membership of Alpha Psi 
Omega.

SIGMA ZETA, honorary science fraternity, has enjoyed during the past 
school year one of the best seasons since the estahhshment of the Beta 
Chapter at McKendree in 1926. As membership is Hmited to Juniors and 
Seniors of superior scholarship in mathematics and the sciences, the roll of the 
organization is necessarily small. At the present time, the active chapter in- 
cludes one member of the Board of Trustees, three Faculty members, two 
Seniors and four Juniors, totaling the largest number the organization has ever 
contained. 

Durmg the past year, the organization attempted but little active work 
aside from the duties of the group, but with the steady growth of the fraternity 
as well as the prospects for a larger membership in the future, a number of 
plans for the furthermg of the objectives of the society are under consideration.

THE NATURE CLUB was organised in 1926 under the capable and 
interested leadership of Dr. E. R. Spencer. It is to him that we owe much 
of our appreciation of the beauties about us, from the most modest flower to 
the historic trees on our campus. 

The purpose of the Nature Club is the sponsoring of nature study, bird 
study, stellar observation, and the beautification of the college campus. Many 
interesting discussions, star-gazing projects, and hikes have been sponsored 
this year. Especially interesting was the trip to the Grand Canyon of Jackson 
County, where plants and rocks were secured for the new rock garden, which 
is to be situated near Clark Hall. Several new rock walks now make our 
campus more convenient as well as more charming. Those belonging to the 
Club are those who are especially interested in such work and study.

ITH the help of the Master, who said, "I have come that ye might have Hfe, 
and have it more abundantly," the Y.W. C. A. on our campus purposes to help 

each girl live in its fulness the abundant life — socially, culturally, spiritually, and this 

year has proved highly successful in that respect. 

From the distribution of "Big Sisters" for the "Little Sister" freshmen girls, to the 
brief, quiet "Evening Tryst" devotions held nightly in the guest room of Clark Hall, 
the Y.W. tries to meet the needs which are so inevitable to college life. 

This year for the first time the Y.W. took charge of one chapel program each 
month, and presented various devotional, instructive, and entertaining programs. 

Beginning next fall, for the first time, the Y.W. is going to organize a Scout troop 
of the younger girls of the community, thus, at the same time, guiding the maturing of 
these girls, and developing a sense of responsible leadership in the college women them- 
selves. As opportunity offers this work will be extended.

OR whatever success the campus Y has had this year, thanks is due to the hearty 
cooperation of the student body, the administration, and the Y. 

A substantial social program was carried out; refreshment stands were operated at 
the games to help finance the Y organisations; the "Y's McKendrean" was published 
for the first time jointly by the Y.M. and Y.W., to fulfill a much-felt need. Freshmen 
adjustment work was begun, including assistance with registration. 

One chapel service a month has been directed by the Y.M. Deputation teams have 
been sent over a wide range of territory to the churches of the various communities. 
This department proved very successful. 

McKendree was the host to ShurtlefF, S.I.N.U., and Blackburn in a Y.M. Retreat 
during the Christmas vacation, with Dr. Ivan Holt and Kirby Page as leaders. An older 
boys' conference was conducted in the spring for high school students of surrounding 
communities, with Allen K. Foster as leader. 

Special thanks is due the city Rotarians for their financial aid, which has made 
e the boys work, with resultant value to both the boys and the leaders in charge.

THE OXFORD CLUB is the organisation of preachers and men who expect to 
enter the ministry. There has been a Preacher's Club in McKendree since 1890, 
though it has not been active all the time. It first took the name Oxford Club in 1920, 
because by that tmie it had become the common custom for the Preacher's Clubs in 
Methodist colleges to he designated by that name. The reason for this name is that 
Methodism had its origin in Oxford University. All preachers in the faculty or student 
body are eligible to membership, as well as those who are preparing for the ministry. 

The object of the organization is to promote interest in religious work, and espe- 
cially in preparation for the various lines of activity in which the modern church usual- 
ly engages, also to cultivate a finer fellowship among the members themselves. They 
have regular meetings twice a month with prepared programs, in which there are dis- 
cussions of questions of church polity and problems, such as the members are likely to 
meet when they come to active participation in their profession. At times men of ma- 
ture experience in the ministry are asked to address the club on suitable topics. Thus 
this organization is an opportunity for its members to receive inspiration in one of the 
most important fields of human activity. The Club is also instrumental in arranging 
Gospel Teams to hold meetings in neighboring churches on invitation from the pastor.

IN the field of Oratory McKendree was very ably represented in the various 
contests of the year by Miss Caroline Schafer, Clark Lee Allen and Lewis 
N. Head. 

As a result of winning the preliminary contest early in the season Mr. 
Allen and Miss Schafer went to Monmouth for the state contest. Here Mr. 
Allen was able to pass safely through the preliminaries and take a third place 
in the finals, with his oration, "Debunking the Constitution." Miss Schafer, 
with her oration, "Waste in Education," won fifth place in the women's 
contest. 

At the Province Convention of Pi Kappa Delta, held at Fulton, Missouri, 
Mr. Head represented the college for the third year and was one of the six to 
reach the finals. Here he placed first with the high score of two firsts and a 
second, but as the final winners were determined by the total score of both the 
preliminaries and finals, Mr. Head was only able to get third place in the final 
ranking. He used as his subject, "The Devil's Workshop," a plea for prison 
reform. 

In the realm of extemporaneous speaking Miss Edith Gott and Clark Lee 
Allen represented McKendree at the Convention. The subject for the men's 
speeches was "America and International Relations," and for the women, 
"Recent Tendencies in Education." 

The crowning event of the year in this field will be the Harriet E. Dorris 
Oratorical Contest to be held on May 30. In this contest all the McKendree 
orators will have a chance to compete for the prizes of $50, $30, and $20. 
Last year this contest was won by Lewis Head.

Women's Debate 



'^^ 



THIS was a successful season m women's debate from every angle. They 
had one of the most extensive schedules that they have ever had, debating 
some of the strongest schools of Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri. The girls debated 
on two different questions: "Resolved that the nations should adopt a policy 
of free trade," and "Resolved that state medicine should be established.' 

There were six on the squad this year : Laura Yargar, senior, Edith Gott, 
junior, Marybelle Hertenstein, junior, Helen Saegesser, Francis Dotson, and 
Leona Jacobs, freshmen. Miss Gott is a veteran of last year. Miss Yargar was 
also on the squad, and the others are newcomers. Miss Gott is a member of 
Pi Kappa Delta, and Miss Hertenstein, Miss Yargar, and Miss Saegesser are 
eligible this year. Miss McNeely did a thorough job of coaching this year. 

Besides the home debates, Miss Gott, Miss Hertenstein, and Miss Saegesser, 
accompanied by Miss McNeely, made a tour in northern Illinois, Iowa, and 
Missouri, debating the following schools on both questions: Western State 
Teachers, Macomb, Augustana, Parsons College, Northeast Teachers, Kirks- 
ville, Missouri, Culver-Stockton. 

Miss Gott and Miss Saegesser represented the college in women's debate 
at the Province Convention at Fulton, Missouri. Here they met two of the 
strongest teams: Central College and William- Jewell. 

All the squad, with the exception of Miss Yargar, will be back next year.

Men's Debate 



ALTHOUGH the schedule this year was of necessity more Hmited than 
that of last year, it was, nevertheless, a successful season. The veteran 
debaters, Clark Lee Allen, Don Moore, Lewis N. Head, and Leon Lauder bore 
the brunt of the encounters, while Albert Meyer, a newcomer to the squad, 
also saw some action. The subject for debate this year was: "Resolved that 
the nations should adopt a policy of free trade." 

The home debates, which were mostly non-decision affairs, included: 
Carthage, Weber College, Ogden, Utah, William Woods, Maryville Teachers 
College, St. Louis University, and Oklahoma City University. A debate was 
held with Shurtletf at Alton. Allen, Moore, Head, and Lauder made an ex' 
tensive two-weeks trip into Kentucky and Tennessee, during which time they 
engaged in contests with the following schools: Union University, Cumber- 
land University, Maryville College, University of the South, Moorhead Teach- 
ers College, Transylvania University, Georgetown College, Murray Teachers 
College. The McKendree team managed to win three, while losing three, with 
a tie and a non-decision. Consider the fact that most of these southern schools 
chose the Democratic side of the question; this was a creditable record. The 
men also staged two exhibition debates — at Cairo Methodist Church and 
Eldorado High School. 

At the Pi Kappa Delta Convention Allen and Moore were very success- 
ful, being one of the last four teams to be eliminated from the tournament, 
after themselves eliminating the state champions of Iowa, and accounting for 
the defeat of two other schools, one of which was highly favored. 

Prospects seem bright for next year, since only Mr. Head will be lost from 
the squad, and some very promising new material is available.

Football Summary 



THE Purple gridders faced a rather hard schedule of nine games with only 
four to be played on our home field. Our new coach, Art Doolen, a 
former player of some note, brought with him the Rockne System which was 
new to the members of our squad. 

The season opened with the Scott Field Aviators invading our territory, 
hut they flew back with the small end of the score, 13-6. Todd, Spudich, and 
Sparlin were the outstanding ground gainers, while Hubbell and Evers did 
fine defensive work. The first defeat was suffered at the hands of the mighty 
Ozark Bears at Springfield, Missouri, when they kicked over the dope bucket 
and won, 44-6. Spudich grabbed a kick'off and raced the entire field for 
McKendree's lone marker. Galloway, our new quarterback, showed remark- 
able ability in calling the plays. After a shift in the line-up, the Bear-cats de- 
feated the Evansville Aces in a hectic contest, 6-0, Radosevitch and Zook, two 
new backfield men, played stellar roles in the fight. 

On October 17 our men took their first conference defeat at the hands of 
the Fighting Irish of St. Viator. Hubbell, Kurrus, and Hortin peppered the 
Irish backfield with consistent tackling. Brock menacingly invited the Irish 
around his end, but only twice did they try it, then resorted to aerial tactics. 
The Pioneers of Shurtleft", led by Captain Hortin, conquered our team in a 
thrilling contest at our Homecoming, 12-7. A large portion of our team were 
on the injured list. McKendree had the advantage in ground gaining from 
scrimmage. Summers and Saunders were outstanding. Coach Doolen's ma- 
chine worked to perfection when our team whipped the strong Cape Girardeau 
^gregation to the tune of 19-2. The Bearcats were penalised ten times, but by 
passing, plunging and long sweeps around end, completely bewildered the 
group from Cape. 

Due to many injuries, the Purple succumbed to I. S. N. U., 12-7. The 
line functioned rather poorly as a whole. The season closed when our Bear- 
cats were defeated by S. I. N. U. of Carbondale, 44-12. The game was not 
such a defeat as it may seem, for S. I. N. U. were Little Nineteen Champs and 
this was one of the highest scores against them. Pitchford and Evers played 
a fine game. 

We cannot boast of an extremely successful season, but several games 
were lost by low scores. At times the team came through with as brilliant work 
as has been seen on the McKendree gridiron. With a year's experience with 
the new coach and system, and the new material that will be available, coupled 
with the fact that not many men will be lost, the Purple should do things in 
a big way next year.

THE McKENDREAN, 1931 





Chlorus Hubbell, Captdni 
Center 
Flora, Illinois 
"Fu:;~y," our All-Conference center, a four letter man, 
standing men on the Purple Hne. His remarkable influence. 



was one of the most out- 
his fighting spirit, his like- 



able disposition, made him a man that McKendree will long remember. "Fu:;sy," we 
hate to see you go. 

Arthur Doolen 
Director of Athletics 
Coach Doolen, a former end on the Kansas State Agricultural College team of 
Manhattan, Kansas, has been with us but one year, but he has made a remarkable 
showing in athletics. He introduced the Rockne System, developing a nucleus for a 
winning football team. His basketball five was one of the most outstanding that Mc- 
Kendree has ever known. Whether here or elsewhere, great accomplishments may be 
expected of Coach Doolen in the future. 



Arthur Hortin, Captam-elect 

Guard 

Albion, Illinois 

They never came too big for "A.E." Many an ambitious back struck a snag when 

he tried to get through his side. Art was always in the thick of the fight. His likeable 

personality ought to make him a fine leader for next year. 




Page 82 



THE McKENDREAN, 1931 




Robert Kurrus, Guard 

E. St. Louis, Illinois 

"Bob," a splendid fighter, a good offensive man, charging quick and hard, was one 

of the most valuable men on the line and a member of the Wrecking Crew. Bob was 

always in the fight, giving his best to the team, and in every phase a great asset to the 

McKendree team. 

Carl Brock, End 
Cisne, Illinois 
"Coach" won his second "M" out on the gridiron by giving his best and showing 
the fighting spirit as he did throughout the entire season. Brock, with his pleasant dis- 
position and his ability to nail everything coming his way, was an outstanding man, 
and we expect much of him in the next two years. 



Owen Evers, Tackle 

"Skinny," weighing only about 220, was always fighting, and very effectively. He 
was an aggressive and deadly tackier, and a good sport, one who was always commend- 
ing his fellow players. "Skinny 's" talkative spirit throughout the entire game was a 
mainstay to the morale of the gang. 




Page 83 




ORE AN, 1931 




k ii i' 




Joseph Spudich, Fullhac\ 
Benld, Illinois 

"Spuds" the Thunderbolt from Benld is all the name implies. A deadly line plunger, 
a hard tackier, and an able punter, Joe was an important cog in the Purple machine. 
Joe is a sophomore and we have great expectations from him in the next two years. 



F 



Elmer Todd, Halfbac\ 

Pleasant Hill, Illniois 

"Butch" the "Big Boy" from Pleasant Hill brought with him remarkable ability as 

a kicker, runner and line plunger, which was poison to the enemy. His size, speed, and 

drive made Todd an important member of the squad. We are glad Todd will be back. 

Frank Gruchalla, Ce?Tter 

Benld, Illinois 

"Big Frank," six feet four, weighing over two hundred, showed us what he could 

do from the pivot position. His defensive work was outstanding, taking iine care of 

the opponents as they attempted to come his v/ay. Frank will undoubtedly have a 

monopoly on the center position for a few years. 




Page 84 



THE McKENDREAN, 1931 




George Moorman, Tac\le 

Edwardsville, Illinois 

Moorman is only a freshman, but he proved his worth by making the first team. 

He was iine ni breaking through the line, stopping runners in their tracks, breaking up 

plays, and making himself a general nuisance to the other team. George is a splendid 

team player. 

Richard Galloway, Sluarterhac\ 
Pleasant Hill, Illinois 
"Dick" showed remarkable talent in selection of signals, in making teamwork, and 
in keeping up the morale of the men. His knowledge of plays, his headwork in signal 
calling, and his all -round ability won for him quite a reputation as an efficient quarter- 
back. 

Dan Hertenstein, Guard 

New Baden, Illinois 

"Dan," a senior, is a fighter, a clean sport, ready to play square with both team and 

opponents, and he will be missed by the men next year. His willingness to "talk it up" 

at all times, ever ready to help the team and school, won for him an admirable place 

with the Purple men. 




THE McKENDREAN, 1931 





WooDROW FuLKERSON, Sluarterhac\ 

Albion, Illinois 

"Woodie," with his shrewd signal calling and the spirit with which he played the 

game, became an niiportant member of the team. Fulkerson is a freshman, but showed 

remarkable ability as a ground gainer, in selection of plays, and in outguessing his 

opponents. 

Charles Summers, Halfbac\ 
Warrenton, Missouri 
"Chick," a three year star of Central Wesleyan, came to McKendree and displayed 
his talent with the Purple team. Small but mighty, "Chick" came through with some 
nice plays, and did much to keep up the fighting spirit of the men. 



Marion Radosevitch, Fullbac\ 
Zeigler, Illinois 
"Tango" was the smallest man on the team, but a powerful line plunger and a 
fighter in every sense of the word. He, too, is a freshman, but an important man, and 
gives promise of being one of the stars of the future. 




^v^^^a^^^^^c-::^^, 



stuff. In the next game the Doolenmen smeared S. I. N. U. at Carbondale to 
the tune of 26-21. A week later they lost to Carthage, 49-41. Continuing 
their winning ways, the Purple crushed the Eastern Teachers at Charleston in 
a Little Nineteen game with a score of 43-31. Two days later they won a 
sensational victory at the expense of the rejuvenated Concordia Seminary 
quintet at St. Louis with a score of 31-29. This game proved to be the most 
oustanding one of the season, with the Purple machine working to perfection 
against the strong Concordia team. 

Our old rival, Shurtleff, proved to he a jinx to our five. The sickness of 
Huhbell and other members of the squad, and rabbit-foot breaks gave Shurtleff 
the edge, and they won two games from our team. 

Friday the thirteenth proved to be anything but unlucky, for on that date 
McKendree won an exceptionally sensational gam.e from S. L N. U. by a score 
of 37-27. This broke a precedent of six years standing, to the effect that the 
Bearcats always beat the Teachers at Carbondale, and vice-versa. Todd and 
Evers were invincible on the defensive, and Wright, Schafer, and Summers 
showed remarkable speed and shooting ability, accounting for ten points in the 
last two minutes. On the next night our team won a close game from Evans- 
ville College. 

This season the Bearcats made an extended trip into Northern Illinois for 
games with Elmhurst, Lake Forest, Crane, and DePaul. They defeated the first 
three, and lost by only six points to De Paul, a team which boasts two victories 
over Northwestern this season. Hubbell, Yucus, and Church ran up high 
individual scores in different games on this trip. 



The men receiving letters are: Hubbell, Summers, Evers, Todd, Church, 
Wright, and Schafer. Hubbell played outstanding ball all season, though he 
was out for several games on account of sickness. Todd and Evers proved to 
be two of the best guards McKendree has ever had. Summers, Wright, 
Church, and Schafer furnish a group from which any two could be picked for 
ij- a pair of flashes. There were some outstanding men on the reserves. Yucus, 

/6- who substituted for Hubbell when he was sick, Stolts, Moorman, Butts, 

"7- Anderson, Nesmith, Fulkerson, L. Church, and Radosevitch all helped to form 

\^ a crack squad, and produce a winning team. 

I \ The intramural contests this year were well organized and furnished a 

great deal of interesting basketball. In addition, they provided a chance for 
every man to participate, helped develop new players, and kept track, tennis, 
and football men in condition. 



With only two men gone, with five letter men back, all the reserve squad, 
and with such new men as may appear, McKendree should have another 
powerful team next year. 







THE McKENDREAN, 1931 




Chlorus Hubbell, Captain, Center 

"Fuzzy" finished his basketball career in 
an outstanding manner. His height, his 
unique one-hand shots, his steady all-round 
play, did much to baffle the opponents and 
run up the scores. Hubbell was always in 
the fight, giving his best till the last whistle. 
"Fuzzy" leaves a vacancy hard to fill. 



Elmer Todd, Guard 

"Butch," 6 feet 2 inches, weighing 210, 
held down the guard position in a brilliant 
manner. Possessing speed, knowledge of the 
game, calm judgment and skill, Todd play 
ed a whale of a game. He was often respon- 
sible for a new fighting spirit, and often 
came through with some brilliant shooting. 
We are glad he will be back. 



Owen Evers, Captain-elect, Guard 

"Skinny," the big guard from Mounds is 
a Junior and has performed remarkably as 
a defensive and offensive man the past three 
years. His ability to "talk it up," to keep 
fight and spirit in the contest makes him a 
valuable asset to the team. He is steady and 
no one plays harder. We will be counting 
on "Skinny" again next year, especially since 
he has been honored with the captaincy for 
1932. 



Page 90 



THE McKENDREAN, 1931 



Charles Summers, Forward 

"Chick," the Httle Central Wesleyan 
Flash, did much to make McKendree a win- 
ning team. Summers was always in the 
right place, an exceptionally fast man, ready 
to receive a pass and make for the goal. 
"Chick" will be missed for his calmness and 
headwork as well as his shooting ability. 



Virgil Church, Forward 

Church's eye for the basket, his aggress- 
iveness, and fast-breaking tactics won for 
him his third letter on the Purple team. He 
is a dependable man, always ready to get 
into the light and play his best. He should 
be one of our outstanding forwards again 
next year. 



Robert Shafer, Forward 

"Bob," the smallest man on the squad, 
only 5 feet 6 inches in height, weighing 145, 
was one of the fastest men in the Little 
Nineteen. He never tired, keeping up a 
terrific pace throughout the entire game, 
and displaying at times spectacular shooting 
ability. 



Lawrence Wright, Forward 

Wright, though only a Freshman, exhib- 
ited some of the skill for which Mt. Carmel 
is noted. His cat-like movements, da2;2ling 
speed, and superior dribbling ability made 
him a difficult man to guard, while he was 
himself a reliable defensive player. Wright, 
too, will be with us next year.

Track Suminary, 192.9=30 

LAST year the Purple and White men faced a hard schedule, but succeeded in 
making a very credible record. Early in the season the team participated in the 
W. A. A. U. Meet in St. Louis. They were unaccustomed to an indoor track, and did 
not fare so well. 

On April 11, in a triangular meet with Shurtleff and the Springfield Teachers, 
our men brought home the big end of the score — McKendree, 70; Springfield, 58; 
Shurtleff, 14. Novotny, the Benld star, won first in the high jump, discus, and high 
hurdles. The Carlyle Flash, Bud Saunders, broke the tape first in the 100 and 220 yard 
dashes. Meyer won the broad jump and Hoifman the 880. Hines, L. Church, Spudich, 
and V. Church did their share in winning the contest. The relay was won by Todd, 
Meyer, Tedor, and Saunders. 

In a quadrangular meet here on our own track our team easily won. The score 
was: McKendree, 81/2; Carbondale, 51; Cape Girardeau, 13; Shurtleff, 12/2- The 
whole team had a finger in the pie. On May 9, the squad journeyed to Illinois College, 
where they won a very close contest by virtue of a first in the relay. Only two meets 
were lost — to Washington University of St. Louis, and to Carbondale, after our men 
had already beaten them twice. Saunders stepped the 100 in 9.7 seconds, but the record 
was unofficial due to a slight wind. 

A group of the track men went to the state meet at Bradley, where Saunders, 
Meyer, Hoffman, and Novotny won various places in their events. 
SCHEDULE— 1930-31 

May 1 — Triangular meet: Cape Girardeau, Shurtleff, McKendree; here.

THE McKENDREAN, 1931 




Girls' Tennis, 192.9=30 

LAST year the girls came through the season with almost a perfect record, 
losing only one contest. The team consisted of Bernice Mowe, Mildred 
Beutelman, Martha Rogers, Lavina Zook and Inez Hageman. 

The opening match was with the strong Illinois College team. Our local 
racketeers invaded their territory and brought hack a victory. Those who 
participated and won were Martha Rogers, Inez; Hageman, Hildred Beutelman, 
and Bernice Mowe. The second match was waged on our local courts, Lavina 
Zook taking part with the local team. We won in a closely contested match. 

On April 1 8 the strong ShurtlefF aggregation invaded our courts, but went 
home with the small end of the score. Our local netsters won as follows: 
Singles — Martha Rogers won, 6-2, 6-1; Lavina Zook won 6-2, 6-1; Bernice 
Mowe won 6-1, 6-4; Doubles — Lavina Zook and Inez Hageman won 6-1, 6-1; 
Bernice Mowe and Mildred Beutelman lost in a close match 6-8, 6-8. The 
second match was also won at ShurtlefF by the McKendree team. 

Two matches were carried on with Blackburn College. Our team won at 
Blackburn, but lost on the local courts. The McKendree team showed up re- 
markably well in the state meet at James Millikin University. Those repre- 
senting McKendree were: Doubles — Mildred Beutelman and Martha Rogers; 
Singles — Bernice Mowe. The girls went to the semi-finals in both doubles and 
singles. 

This record was one of which McKendree may be proud. Prospects are 
good for this year, with Bernice Mowe, Mildred Beutelman and Inez Hageman 
back, and others showing up well in practice.

THE McKENDREAN, 1931 




's Tennis, 192.9°! 930 



'cKENDREE tennis teams composed of Virgil Church, Leon Church, Jack 
Pfeffer and Dan Hertenstein had a very successful season last year, showing an 
exceptional brand of tennis throughout the season, and winning a great majority of 
their matches. 

On April 7, our Racketeers invaded Blackburn College and completely swamped 
the opponents. Leon Church, Jack Pfetfer and Virgil Church easily won the singles, 
while the Church brothers and Pfeffer and Hertenstein won in the doubles. On April 
1 2 Blackburn came to our campus and met with another decisive defeat at the hands of 
the Purple men. The Locals doubled the score on the Blackburn aggregation, 66-33. 
Singles were won as follows: V. Church, 6-2, 6-3; L. Church, 7-5, 6-3; Pfeffer, 6-2, 64. 
The doubles resulted in the following scores: Pfeffer and Hertenstein won, 6-2, 7-5; 
V. Church and L. Church won, 6-2, 10-8. 

The only defeat of the season was when Shurtleff brought their strong team down 
and won in a close match. V. Church won, 6-1, 6-3. L. Church won, 8-6, 2-6, 6-4. 
Pfeffer lost, 5-7, 6-4, 2-6. Hertenstein lost, 1-6, 9-7, 2-6. Both doubles were lost to the 
opponents. On May 7, the Carbondale netsters were defeated by our team on the local 
courts. The Purple men swept all matches, singles and doubles. 

In the state meet at Jacksonville our team showed up well, but were defeated in 
the later rounds. 

This year, with Leon and Virgil Church and Dan Hertenstein back, and uith a 
good new recruit, Walter Hadfield, McKendree shows promise of setting up another 
excellent record.

Cross=Coimtry Summary 

CROSS-COUNTRY meets have become very popular m the Little Nineteen the 
last few years, and McKendree has had much success in recent meets with the 
various colleges and universities. 

In the Coach, Professor Garvin, who was a star at Illmois University, the Purple 
Harriers have a man who knows cross-country work, and a man who has developed 
some good teams. 

In the fall of 1929 the Purple men went up against a rather difficult schedule of 
six meets, with Illinois College, Carhondale, Bradley, Washington University, and the 
state meet, hut they managed to win a majority of the contests. 

This year only two meets besides the state meet could be scheduled — with Illinois 
Normal and Illinois College at Jacksonville, and with Bradley at Peoria. In the first 
meet Normal won by a score of 23; McKendree was second with 43; and Illinois Col- 
lege was third with 59. In this meet Captain Leon Church placed third, Hines fifth, 
and Nattsas sixth. 

The Harriers were defeated by Bradley by a score of 23-32. Bradley has had an 
exceptionally strong team for several years, and were last year's champions. The Mc- 
Kendree team was handicapped by the loss of Hines on account of sickness. Church 
placed third, Nattsas fifth, Hadfield seventh, Bohn eighth, and Davis ninth. In the 
state meet the team placed well up in the Little Nineteen. 

Schedules have been made for next year with some of the strong Northern teams, 
such as Bradley and Normal. Prospects look good, with this year's experience for 
some of the men, and the loss of only a few.

FEATURES 



THE McKENDREAN, 1931 



In Memoriam 



Avery novel and delightful event of the year was the funeral of Mr. Jonah 
Hoodoo Jinx, which took place in the College Chapel, Monday morning, 
March 22. The cause for this unusual occurrence was the admission of Mc 
Kendree into The North Central Association on Thursday of the preceding 
week. Since Mr. Jinx had evidently been the most potent factor in thwarting 
our previous attempts to become a member of the Association, and since he 
had at last been overcome, it seemed to be the logical thing to carry out an 
appropriate ceremony. 

While the doleful funeral dirge was being played, the black casket of Mr. 
Jinx, amply decorated with celery, cauliflower, and other similar vegetation, 
was brought to the front of the chapel by the pallbearers, who were faculty 
members. The mourners, composed of the remaining faculty members and 
seniors, followed, apparently very sad. 

Dr. Walton, Dean Baker, and Dr. Harmon were the chief speakers for 
the occasion. Dr. Walton read the obituary, which was quite a lengthy dis- 
course on Mr. Jinx's past activities, influence, and life in general. It was re- 
vealed that Mr. Jinx, frequently disguised, had been haunting McKendree for 
103 years in various other ways, as well as preventing her entrance into the 
Association. 

Dean Baker and Dr. Harmon, each optimistically and emphatically de- 
clared that now Mr. Jinx's work was over, and expressed their gratitude for 
this, although they were constantly reminded that it was a very solemn and 
serious occasion. 

When the various addresses and eulogies were finished, under the capable 
direction of the undertakers, Mr. Hortin and Mr. Kurrus, the congregation 
filed by the casket to view the remains, again to the strains of the mournful 
dirge. The funeral train, headed by Mr. Jinx's corpse then proceeded to the 
back campus, where the funeral pyre had been prepared, and a grave dug to 
receive the ashes. 

The casket was placed on this pyre, and after being duly saturated with 
kerosene, the corpse was cremated, while the spectators with bared heads sang 
the Alma Mater. 

(Note: — This event also was widely known, since an account of the pro- 
ceedings appeared in several newspapers.)

Most Representative 



THE initial annual sales campaign was featured by the 
contest to choose the six "most representative" stu- 
dents. For each dollar paid down on an annual the pur- 
chaser was allowed one vote for a hoy and one for a girl. 

The choice was to be based upon : scholarship, ability and 
versatility in extra-curricular activity, and general respect 
of students and teachers. Those receiving the largest num- 
ber of votes were: girls — Irene French, Evaline Garner, 
and Edith Hortni; boys — Don Moore, Lewis Head, and 
Clark Lee Allen.

HOMECOMING DAY this year was characterized by one of the most elaborate 
float parades in the history of the college. Between fifteen and twenty floats 
participated from every organization on the hill. A prize consisting of a picture m The 
McKendrean was ofi^ered for the best float, which heightened the interest in the parade. 
There were many beautiful and novel floats, hut the prize went to the Angel Roost, 
neatly trimmed in white, and with four unique horned and winged angels riding on it. 
All who saw this pageant of decorative representation pronounced it the greatest 
parade they had ever seen on Homecoming Day.

TRUE to McKendree tradition, Hobo Day occurred on the day preceding Home- 
coming this year. Contrary, however, to the usual custom of having only "Hohoes" 
we had also "Hoboettes" during the entire day. The costumes were even more ridicu- 
lous and uniformly pertinent than in previous years. The familiar belated alarms re- 
sounded throughout the day, and the gaiety was just as exuberant as ever before. 

Another added feature this year was the evening's entertainment. Lunch was 
served cafeteria style, then a Hallowe'en party in the gym very appropriately followed. 
Prizes were awarded for the best "Hobo and Hoboette" to Opal Huif and Albert 
Nattsas. Both group and individual pictures were taken, giving us quite a lot of pub- 
licity since they were circulated quite extensively. 



The pep meeting and snake dance 
which climaxed the day left all partic- 
ipants in excellent condition for the 
events of the following day.

The Moon 



High over the hill where the whippoorwill 
Pours out on the air its mournful tune, 
With her silvery white the queen of the night 
Bathes in beauty the land and lagoon, 
And the delicate flush of her maidenly blush 
As she meets the smiles of the earth below 
In a golden splendor just seems to render 
The unlit landscape with life aglow. 

The dark lace net and the silhouette 

Of the many-armed skeleton trees 

Form a filmy veil for the maiden frail, 

Dancing wierdly about in the breese; 

Or they upward gaze through the lustrous haze 

At the queen as she rides on high, 

And her raven hair bedecked so fair 

With roses out of her garden — the sky. 

The velvet curtain with folds uncertain 
Falls from the darkness over her face. 
Then she steps into view with glory anew. 
The shadows from out of her pathway to chase; 
And the silent glide as their white forms slide 
Off into the darkness like ghosts from, the light. 
Gives her a thrill, for she knows that they still 
Are hoping to cover her face for the night. 

Then she sits on the bank of the rivers dank, 
Where the grasses sparkle with glossy sheen, 
To watch the liason, as each tiny mason 
Helps build a pathway of gold to his queen; 
She seems to ride like a leaf on the tide. 
Tossing about from wave to wave. 
Or with fairy tread toward us is lead 
Down the trail which her helpmeets pave. 

She waves good-bye and climbs to the sky 

On a ladder of dust from the stars. 

And sings a song the whole night long 

To the fire-eyed ruler of Mars; 

She slowly descends as her night's play ends. 

Though she yearns to linger a while, 

And her brightness wanes on the shadowy lanes 

As she gives us a farewell smile. 

Then she sees the fire of her father's ire. 
As he over the horizon peers, 
Where his angry face emblazons the place. 
And her soft eyes are starting with tears; 
For she knows the wrath of her father's path. 
As he chases away the shadows of night; 
Her face turns pale, and with smothered wail 
She silently fades away from his sight. 

— Howard Rawlinson

Living For Others 



What is life to you? 
What is there in store? 
What's the use of Hving? 
What do YOU hve for? 

Do you hve for your own pleasures? 
Do you work for your own needs? 
Do you strive in all life's battles, 
Trying hard to do good deeds? 

Are you selfish and conceited? 
Was the world made just for you, 
Or do you think of other people 
As everyone should do? 



Then you should live for other people, 
And help them when you can; 
Speak kind words to those who need them 
And prove yourself a man. 



Then when your life's work is over, 
And you've journeyed all the way. 
Can you say, "I've lived for others,' 
Before God, on Judgment Day? 




THE McKENDREAN, 1931 



ReiiiLiiiciatioii 



Gone! Every dream that I cherished 
Has passed by and left me alone 
In this cruel and hitter old world, 
With nothing at all to atone. 

I've wandered from one place to another 
And wished I might give up and die. 
But that's a coward's way out of a thing 
And since I'm not a coward, I cry. 

You've never felt the way I do 
Or you'd not have been so unkind. 
For I've not even one hope to stand on 
When thoughts of you fill my mind. 

Gone is my faith in all mankind. 
For I loved you and trusted you too; 
Those dreams that I hung on a rainbow 
Have all gone away, dear, with you. 

A vagabond on life's highway, 
I'll wander through life, till at last 
I'll settle down in some cottage 
And live on my dreams of the past.

Once as I wandered o'er the mead 

I chanced upon a tumbleweed, 

Aimlessly its path pursuing 

No goal to reach; no haste ensuing, 

And yet it seemed to hurry on, 

To leave the place that it had won. 

Pushed forward by an unseen power 

Holding not a faint desire. 

But yielding to an impulse given. 

By winds of chance is forward driven; 

It onward rolled across the mead 

A thoughtless, aimless tumbleweed. 

Just a glance I did not heed 
This little bush roll 'cross the mead. 
But later on I seemed to see 
That little bush roll o'er the lea. 
And thought about the men each day 
Who toss about life's crowded way, 
Who do at any man's suggestion. 
Who never think and never question, 
But as puppets onward dance 
Knowing only luck and chance, 
Who by their actions do behave 
Just as a chip tossed on a wave, 
Or blown about by selfish greeds — 
Are only human tumbleweeds.

When I was sick 

You came along, 
Singing your happy song- — 

My Nurse. 
Lips with a smile, 
Dimples in your cheek, 
Twinkles in your eye 
Caused me not to die — 
My Nurse. 

I hope and pray 

That some sweet day 
ril he your patient for aye- 

My Nurse. 
Would you take me? 
Would you accept me? 
Would you love me? 

My Nurse? 

When you get older. 

And I get holder, 
Tm going to ask you to he 

My Nurse. 
You are the only 
Who can fill my lonely 
Heart with sunshine — 
My Nurse.

Dig, dig, and dig alone.

If we but do our utmost digging.

We Made It 



Inspectors seem to be the craze; 
They haunt our nights, they ruin our days. 
They have never given us any rest, 
They really make us look our best. 

And we can now be justly proud 
That in "N. C." we were allowed; 
This does not mean that we can shirk, 
We must keep up the splendid work. 

Now that all this has come to pass. 
Just watch your step; keep off the grass. 
And do the right things every day. 
Then in "N. C." they'll let us stay. 

Inspections surely soon will cease. 
Then well enjoy a bit of peace; 
We got it, Roy; now let it lay; 
Who said McKendree saw her day? 

— Joseph Spudich 



When I don't want to go somewhere, 
I love to have it rain. 
To see the drops come pattering down 
Upon the windowpane. 

I do not like the bluster, roar. 
Of semi-hurricanes; 
The kind of weather that I like 
Is simply when — it rains. 

A steady downpour do I love 
Far better than a shower; 
It washes, cleanses all outdoors 
Lavishly, by hours. 

And another thing — well, maybe 
1 had better ask you plain: 
Say, did you ever have a date 
With someone — in the rain? 



-Hugh McNelly

THE McKENDREAN, 1931 



Do you ever feel lonesome and blue as sin, 
When something inside is hurting you, 
And want away from life and men 
Out where the silence is biting through? 

Do you want to be out in the all alone 

With nothing but darkness, God and the stars, 

Where the night winds sigh in a monotone, 

To be with yourself and your thoughts for hours? 

Does something seem to burn you inside, 
And your heart to be bursting with tears; 
Then reminisce 'neath the branches wide 
And bring back the bruises and heartaches of years? 



Somehow it seems to remove all the pain 

And give you a quiet kind of peace, 

For you know that she too gets lonesome for you. 

And your love and hers never cease. 

— Howard Rawlinson 




There was a hoy who all day long 
Would sing to his maiden fair; 
But when he came to end his song, 
He found she was not there. 

One day he thought he would not sing; 
He tried to get sincere, 
But when he turned to get his ring 
He saw her disappear. 

One day he said, "I must propose," 
But when she came along, 
He walked right up to her and said, 
'Why do you sing that song?" 

The days rolled by, the years also, 
Once more he tried again; 
But she stood iirm, he lost his nerve; 
His trial had been in vain. 

One day he said to her for sure, 
'Sweetheart, will you be mine?" 
'My dear," said she, in mournful tones, 
'Why I cannot be thine. 

'For I was wedded long ago, 
I waited in despair: — 
It takes a strong, persistent heart 
To win a maiden fair." 



-John W. Barrett

In me all human \nowledge dwells; 

The oracle of oracles; 

Past, present, future, I reveal, 

Or in oblivious silence seal. 

What I preserve can perish never — 

What 1 forego is lost forever. 

I spea\ all languages; bv me 

The deaf may hear, the blind may see. 

The dumb converse, the dead of old 

Communion with the living hold. 

All hands are one beneath my rule; 

All nations learners in my school. 

Men of all ages, everywhere. 

Become contemporaries there. 

James Montgomery

Douglas debates in an American 






History exam : 
"Lincoln tied Douglas in a knot 






in the debate. Asked him a question 


Blotters, Four-Color Process Work, 


so long Douglas didn't get it all, so 


Envelopes, Pamphlets, Stationery, 


he said it was irrelevant and quoted 
Dred Scott for authority. Slavery 


Catalogues, Office Forms, 


was the big issue, so they all sang, 


Letterheads, CalHng Cards, 


'Massa's in the cold, cold ground,' 


Tickets, Feel-Type, 


and dug him up to prove it. 




"Territories had something to do 


Engraved Invitations 


with it, so Lincoln advanced the 




theory of extra-territoriality. This 




crossed-up Douglas, so he had to

We respectfully submit the following as the best joke of the current 
season; we guarantee that you have not heard it, and that you will laugh till 
you cry when you read it; 

Once three men went into a restaurant. They asked the waiter what kind 
of pie he had. "Peach, cherry, and apple," he said. The iirst man said, "Give 
me peach"; the second said, 'Til take cherry"; the third scratched his head, 
deliberated a moment, then said, 'TU take apple."
