CONTENTS . ,
OUR CAMPUS . . .
Standing on one of the highest points of the Lebanon hill is old McKendree
College, its ml brick buildings surrounded by trees, some of which were fully
grown when the college was established here one hundred seven years ago. To him
who is impressed with the majesty of trees and with the splendor that falls on old
buildings, there is nothing more impressive than McKendree's eighty-year-old
Chapel Hanked by two giant white oaks that looked on when the building was con-
structed and which now reach out with their forty-foot branches as if trying to
shield the sacred roof. From these branches the squirrels drop upon that roof
which serves them as a playground and as a bridge in their journeys from one tree
;.' another. At the door of Science Hall stands another giant oak. on guard, its
three-foot trunk towering far above that three-story building.
'There are eight of these venerable white oaks on the campus, not one of them
less than two centuries old. These, with several of their offspring, many of which
arc already more than a hundred years old, give a majestic air to this wooded hill
such as no other trees could provide.
Fifty-one species of trees, young and old, are flourishing on our campus, and
every year is adding to this number as well as to the number of native shrubs and
perennial plants. The Hill will he an arboretum of note some day if the sons and
daughters of McKendree do not forget her.
McKendree has been taken out of the mud by walks constructed where paths
run. A rock garden and three perennial flower beds adorn the one-time
ipe north of Clark 1 till. The parking lot has been taken from the front cam-
pus, and now. where dust and noise formerly mingled with the music from the
Chapel studios, harmony reigns supreme. The old parking space will be reduced
afford only enough room for visitors' cars, while the ugly view from the
front windows of Clark Hill will be changed to one of beauty.
Trei j set in a cordance with a plan on the back campus, and Lake

the donor, Andrew Carnegie,
is the college home for men.

buildings to he constructed on
the Hill, is connected with

STORY OF THE TREES
the meadows, through the wheatfields, comes a breath of summe
And it rustics through the branches of our old McKendree trees:
Let us listen for a moment to the stun that it tells,
As it mingles with the music of the old McKendree hells.
Let it tell iif virgin forests, sown in ages long before,
lire the eye of tlie explorer ever tested mi our shore :
How they waved above the builders of the mounds we see today,
Temples fur their early worship, or tii lay their dead away.
Let it tell i't other races coming mi to take their place,
Painted peoples of the prairies, bent mi war or on the chase:
Tell ut pioneer and settler, men of faith and hardy breed,
As they laid the bounds of cities and of culture sowed the seed.
Let it tell of Christian fathers, gathered piously in prayer,
As the_\' patterned out the vision of a school and campus fair:
Tell nf toiling and of labor, sacrifice of wealth and ease,
As they hewed a Hall nf Learning from the old McKendree trees.
Tell a century of service, people gathered far and near.
laim the happ) record of our Centenar} year;
rising from the forest, lifted up in grateful prayer
!'< r the living and the learning that our school had builded there.
to linger 'neath the old McKendree trees,
stoi coming in upon the breeze,
And we vision fur the future, happy ages drawing nigh,

Worthy achievement on the part of students in the fields of science and
mathematics is recognized at McKendree by the Beta chapter of Sigma Zeta. This
chapter, established on the campus in 1926, is one of eight similar organizations
belonging to the national honorary science fraternity.
In April of this year a National Conclave
of Sigma Zeta, held in conjunction with the
Alpha Chapter at Shurtleff. was the out-
standing event. Sessions were held both at Al-
ton and Lebanon. In addition to this, Sigma
Zeta sponsored a Freshman Essay Contest on
scientific subjects, giving as prizes a silver cup
and a book. Several evening meetings were
held to which non-members were invited.
Through these meetings Sigma Zeta has made
a definite contribution to campus life by bring-
ing in valuable speakers as well as by the
showing of interesting films.

ALPHA PSI OMEGA

College students interested in dramatic work aspire to become members of
Alpha Psi Omega, National honorary dramatic fraternity. At McKendree, the
Alpha Theta Cast, established in 1927, gives recognition to all those who have
shown outstanding ability in dramatic productions.
Eligibility is based mi the point system. Since the success of a play often de-
pends largeh i n its management, proper advertising and other like features, eli-
gibility credit is also given the business manager as well as the actual participant
in the play.

PHILOSOPHIAN LITERARY SOCIETY
A long period of achievement, extending almost as far back as McKendree
itself, can be pointed to by the Philosophian Literary Society as it enters its ninety-
ninth year of activity. Philo may well be proud of such a record and also of the
Philos who have successfully gone out into the various professions.
Though old in years the Philosophian society is an organization with dis-
tinctly new ideas. Not content to rest solely on the achievement of past years it
has continued to improve. "To encourage literary achievement and debate" still
remains the purpose of the organization, but the members realize that only by
living in the present and looking to the future can this aim be carried out.
The society meets in open session once each month and all those who are
interested are invited. This was triennial year and the banquet was an important

The burning of a note which marked the payment of an old debt of the so-
ciety and the development of a championship Intramural League basketball team
are two of the year's outstanding features of which the Platonian Literary Societ)
is justly proud.
Established in 1S4 1 '. Plato has long been recognized for its literary merit,
and fur the opportunit) it affords young men for training in debate, extempo-
raneous speaking and the related fields. This year, however, with its success in
athletics, Plato feels that a definite step forward has been taken. By the foster-
ing of athletics, the societ) believes that it does not weaken but rather strengthens
the original purpose of the founders and thai the development of the whole man is
sary for outstanding success in any endeavor.
foyful over success in a new field, the Platonians celebrated their victory with
a dinner at the Bertram Hotel in Lebanon. Later, a banquet, followed by a theatre
party, was held at the College Inn of Moid Belleville.

A few months after the admission of women to McKendree the Clionian Lit-
erary Society was founded in December of 1869. Of the twenty women listed in
the college catalogue at that time, fifteen were charier members of the new society.
To-day it still remains the only woman's organization of its kind upon the campus.
Since its organization, Clio has been carried on enthusiastically. Many a girl,
who has later become a leader, received her training through participation in Clio
programs. Meetings are held every week and interesting programs consisting of
declamations, essays, assigned addresses, impromptus, and current events are de-
livered. Once a month an open session is conducted.
The truth of the saying of the society, "once a Clionian, always a Clionian"
was demonstrated at the reunion held in the society hall during the forenoon of the
last Homecoming da} 1 . This meeting was well attended and actives listened eagerly
as old grads related their experiences while members of Clio.
The Clionian banquet and the exhibition program at the close of the school
year are annual events.

"The promotion of fraternal and social relationships among the men students
on the hill" has been the aim of the Bachelor's fraternity ever since its founding
in 1919. That it has been successful can readily be seen in the fact that the organ-
ization has grown and carried on until today it has an active membership of twen-
ty-three. Dr. E. W. Hayter, head of the His-
| has always been given special recognition.
This year the Bachelor loving cup, presented
in this connection, was received by Guslav
Krizek of Belleville. Krizek's name will be
engraved on the cup as well as being placed
on the fraternity honor roll.

McKendree's sororities was officially recognize*

been one of severe testing during which the
members have striven earnestly to live up to
the three-fold purpose of Phi Lambda Tan:
high spiritual, scholastic and social standards.
The social calendar included a hayride ;
homecoming reunion; a Christmas party al
the Locust Hills countr) club; rush-week
activities which carried out the "Alice in Won-

SIGMA BETA RHO
"Service, Brotherhood, Religion," is the motto of Sigma Beta Rho and noth-
ing could better state the high purpose of the organization. Through it the group
of ministerial students on the campus are brought together into a closer fellowship.
At the regular monthly meetings subjects relative to their profession are
discussed bv the members. The problems which confront the young minister are
given special attention. In this way Sigma Beta Rho renders a definite service
to her members and enables them to more effectively carry out her motto.
Dr. Walton has been sponsor of the
group since its organization in 1931 and Rev.
Todd has been an active member since its
inception. Honorary members are Dr. Cam-
eron Harmon and Rev. W. E. Bennett. New
members initiated this year are : Lloyd Bar-

Again, as in the year of its founding, the sorority has taken an active part in

KAPPA THETA TAU
November of 1934 marked the first anniversary of the founding of the Kappa
Theta Tau sorority. The purpose of the organization as set forth by the nine
charter members, two of whom are now in school, is "to promote scholarship,
friendship and social activities among its members." One of the most important
forward steps taken this year was the formation of an Alumni Association whose
aim is to continue the purpose of the sorority after leaving school.
The fall activities included a tea at the home of Mrs. Cameron Harmon, a
party at the h
h Habig '34, in St. Louis, a wiener roast and a home-
coming reunion dinner. Rush week in Janu-
ary featured a tea and parties at the homes of
Airs. Harold Pfeffer, Mrs. John Zinkgraf and

affording the proper kind of exercise which is so necessary to efficient college
work. Recognition in the form of a purple and white "M" is given for continued
activity in sports.

Athletic ability receives its recognition and reward through the "M" club.
Any man who has won his college letter in a major sport is eligible to be ini-
tiated into the organization.
The club enables the athletes of the school to join in a united effort to bring
about a better type of sportsmanship in collegiate contests. Graduating seniors
are also honored each year with trophies for
each sport in which they have won a letter.
Long after letters have become worn and
sweaters frayed at the edges this emblem, the
parting gift of the "M" club, remains a valua-
ble treasure to the former letterman.

The French Club, under the direction of Miss Elsa Alae Tyndall, is one of
the three organizations enjoying its first year on the campus.
French customs, songs, current literature and folk dances, as well as a closer
acquaintance with spoken French language, are the things of primary interest to
the club members. Consequently, special stress
is given to these points in the program arrange-
ment. In order that there may be greater
variety in the programs each French class is
given its own song and folk dance which is
later presented at a regular club meeting. A
"French Christmas Party" was the feature of
the December program.
Membership is confined to those enrolled
in the regular French courses. Meetings are

Although the greater part of the college enrollment is drawn from the states
of Illinois and Missouri, still we rind a number of other states represented on our
campus. It was in recognition of this fad and in order that persons from these
various sections might become acquainted that the ( hit-State Club was organized
hv Miss Elsa Mae Tvndall in the fall of 1934 with eighteen charter members.
The prevailing spirit of the organization is one of appreciation of the "other
fellow" and a sharing in his interests and
ideals. There is also a definite desire on the
part of the members to learn from one another
something of the customs traditions and places
of interest of each one's native section.

"Campus Week," a new thing on the Hill, answers conclusively the question,
"Why have a Nature Club on McKendree's campus"? This week of "campus
consciousness," sponsored by the Nature Club, was really an intensification of
the program the group has been working on all year. During this time the student
body was made to appreciate more fully the natural beauty of our campus. Many
improvements, such as the planting of trees and shrubs and the building of rock
walks, have been accomplished through the
Nature Club. Further ways of improvement
have also been pointed out. In connection with
the week's activity outside speakers brought
interesting talks and a "Nature Exhibit" was
held in the basement of the library.
A special study of the trees on the
campus was made by the club this year as one
of the means of acquainting its members with
nature. Also, through the efforts of the Nature
Club, Mr. Fain King, noted archeologist, was
brought to the campus and delivered several

A "New Deal" was effected this year in the regular student chapel hour which
is conducted by the Student Association. With the change from a short daily
chapel to an hour period on Tuesdays and Thursdays the Student Association now
holds its regular meeting and program on the last Thursday of each month.
Upon enrollment every student automatically becomes a member of the
Association and is free to take part in its meetings and discussions. The programs
this year have been very carefully worked out by a committee whose aim was
to make this hour worthwhile.
Besides participation in the regular chapel programs the Student Association
is active in supporting the various athletic teams and in fostering school loyalty.
Much of the success of the Homecoming celebration was due to the efforts of the
Student Association, working in cooperation with the faculty homecoming

The two quartets, while singing on the Glee Club programs, are really organi-
zations in themselves. They are able to appear on occasions where it would be
impossible to use the entire clubs. In this way they are able to contact a larger
number of persons.
This year the Men's Quartet, because of graduation of members, has been
re-organized and the new group made its initial appearance on the Glee Club trip.
On the other hand, the Women's Quartet has been very active. Their engage-
ments have included programs at the Trenton Baptist Church ; D. A. R. tea at
Belleville ; Prospect Park Community House ; Belleville Parent-Teacher meet-
ing; the national Sigma Zeta conclave; and the annual McKendree luncheon held
during the meeting of the Southern Illinois Teachers' Association.

DEBATE SQUAD . . .
That students arc reall) vitall) concerned with the social problems ami
economic trends of today was clearly shown l>\ the keen interest in debate this
year. The forensic season, which officially closed with the Missouri Province
Convention, has been an unusually successful one on the hill. Largely because
of the interest and careful coaching of Mr. Marl Wiley 1 layter. McKendree has
been represented b> debate teams of which she may he justly proud.
The men's Pi Kappa Delta question fur this year was: Resolved: "Thai the
nations should agree to prevent the international shipment of arms and muni-
tions." - ere also prepared on the Socialized Medicine, the Democratic
Collectivism and the Collective Bargaining questions.
A glance over the record fur the season shows a total of seven favorable
decisions as against three losses. McKendree lost decisions to Blackburn, Cape
Girardeau and Asbury Colleges but emerged victorious from a single encounter
with Shurtleff College and the dual debates with Southern Illinois State Normal
University, St. Louis University and Blackburn College. Non-decision debates
were held with Greenville, Carthage and the Principia Colleges.
Those who made up the debate squad this year were: Paul .Meadows. Harold
T. Whitlock and Arthur V. Huffman, four years experience; Clifford J. Ilerlen-
stein, three years; F.mile F. Mignery, two years; and Carl C. Bracy, Kenneth
Brown, Harold Hertenstein, Paul I*.. Stevens, John Oppitz, Phebe Anderson,

"Captain Ken Wilson, halfback, counted the second McKendree touchdown in
the final quarter after Ervin Aufderheide, the other halfback, had placed the ball
in scoring position with a 27-yard run."
"One of the outstanding individual performances of the season was made by
Captain Ken Wilson, McKendree halfback, against Carbondale Teachers last Fri-
day. Wilson made touchdown runs of 58 yards and 71 yards, and ran his total
points to 19."
'"Old McKendree is always a tough hombre to bring down on the gridiron."
Robert Hartley, a former hardwood star
at Carbondale, assisted Coach Waldorf in
football and track and was head coach in bas-

Don was the smallest lineman to letter, but he was al-
ways anxious to get into the game. Wilson had two
ways of getting his man — actions and words.
ELDON BROWNING, Pleasant Hill.
Although handicapped by lack of experience, Browning
was always ready to step in and dish it out when the
Purple's forward wall began to weaken.
DUDLEY KLAMP, Irvington.
Klamp was the largest man on the squad, tipping the
scales at 265. He starred in the Wesleyan game when he
displayed his ability at checking hard-driving interfer-
ence. Next year he should work off 20 pounds and
really man-handle them.
OSWALD BERENDT, Granite City.
Berendt was Coach Waldorf's answer for a punter. The
Washington game saw "Dutch" give the ball a ride of
80 yards in the rain. He had the size, scrap and knowl-
edge of the position such as a good end should have.
CLIFFORD HERTENSTEIN, New Baden.
"Cliff" has been out for football for four years. He
ends his career on the gridiron by graduation.
BASKET BALL SQUAD
. Suhrlieinrich, Krizek, Harms, .1. Be
list, Mai oit, Wilson, N'orris.
Coach Hartley's men, winning four conference games out of nine starts and
collecting thirteen decisions out of twenty-three tilts, proved to be one of the best
hardwood lives for old McK. in several seasons.
They showed what a flashy, sharp-shooting quintet could do as they won their
lasl -' . ! fine style.
Tin- addition of Bise, Welborn and Ionian, all over 6 feet two inches, gave the
Bear deal of additional strength over last season.
With the return of all the present material a great team should develop for the
I year since onl) three of the fifteen letter men will lie lost by graduation.

"Scotty" broke into the scoring column more
than usual this season, still playing his good guard-

rather small, he was a fine, dependable defensive

Although "Izzy" had a little tough luck hitting
the basket early in the season, he regained his eye

KENNETH WILSON, Granite City.
Tunior. Captain-elect and Guard.
Wilson was shifted to guard this year, where
he came through in fine shape. "Spike" was as
tricky on the hard-wood as he was on the gndiroi

ing eight points in the last six minutes of play al

aid to the squad next year.
ROY IAECKEL, New Athens.
.Taeckel enlisted on the squad at mid-year and
showed possibilities of a good forward.
RAYMOND HARMS, Bone Gap.
Harms played sort of "off and on" games at
forward. He has plenty of size and with a little
more experience should make an important cog in
the Purple's machine.

RICHARD SIHRHEINRICH, New
"Dick" was the star guard in intra-mural basket-
ball last year, but was advanced to the varsity this
season. He seemed never to tire and kept up a
terrific pace all the time he was in the game.
TOE CRAWFORD, Belknap.
Although handicapped in the early season by a
bad knee, the "Hutsonville Flash" demonstrated
his skill at ball-handling in the latter part of the
season. Joe was a fast, tricky player as well as
a great little passer and displayed spectacular
shooting-ability at times.
GEORGE WELBORN, Centralia.
Welborn made it plenty hot for several teams
this year and was the Purple's main point-getter.
He compiled a total of 227 points, 95 of which
were in conference tilts, placing him in eighth
position in the Little Nineteen.
WAYNE BISE, Mound City.
When there was a scramble to get the ball off
the back-board, Bise often came out with the
sphere. His size gave the team greater strength in
recovering rebounds, and he was good for at least
five or six points per game.
ALVIN IORDAN, Dupo.
Jordan joined ranks at mid-year and immediately
became the first string center, where he proved to
be more than a match for several teams. He also
shared honors in dishing out a brilliant defeat to
E. I. T. C.
GUSTAY KRIZEK, Belleville.
Krizek was used by Coach Hartley to relieve 1,,,
regular guards. "Gus" was a hard fighter and a
good defensive man.
lAMES BEERS, Carrier Mills.
Beers developed from a freshman of unknown
ability into one of the best reserve guards on the
squad. He was a levelheaded player and had quite
an eye for the basket.

INTRAMURAL . . .
Intramural athletics attracted quite a number of men in the fields of basket-
ball, track, tennis and indoor baseball.
In Basketball — The Plato Literary Society won the six-team two-round race
by nosing out the second position AMO fraternity team. Because of their team
work and determination to win. the Platos were undefeated. The Bachelor fra-
ternity team held the same position as last year, that of third. The Philo Literary
team ranked fourth and the Rough Riders beat the Faculty for fifth place.
Hertenstein was high-point man during the race with 78 points to his credit.
Sanders and Rauth were close on his heels with 76 each. The Review All- Star
selection was composed of C. Hertenstein, Plato, and Sanders, Bachelors, for-
wards ; Larsh, AMO, center ; Harmon, Plato, and Wehmeier, Plato, guards. Sim-
mons, Presley, Schwartz, Rauth, and Pruett composed the second five.
In Track — The freshmen walked off with the laurels in the annual inter-
class field meet, scoring 53 points. The seniors were second with 43 : sophomores
third with 31 ; and the juniors last with 26. John P. Sampson, a sophomore, was
high-point getter with 21 tallies to his credit. Sanders rated second with 15'_-
points; Manwaring and Presley tied for third, each claiming 14; while Daniels
had 12. Other point getters included Hearst for the seniors ; Rauth and Dorko
for the juniors ; Morris, Blackburn and Dillinger for the sophomores ; and Pruett,
Zeller, Cope, Jaeckal, Mewmaw, Oxendine, Zirges and Bise for the freshmen.
As we go to press, a men's tennis tournament with 28 contestants is in prog-
ress. The soft-ball league will soon be organized.
