The Publications Staff presents Opus 9 as a 
record of achievements, occasions, and personali- 
ties from the academic year 1948-49. 

We should like Opus 9 to be an especial re- 
minder of the last class of Seniors to be graduated 
from Arthur Jordan Conservatory of Music, and 
a forethought to the first graduating class from 
Jordan College of Music in 1 950.

The Dean of Women, Mrs. Ruth Woodworth, affectionately known as 
Mrs. Woodie, reigns as house mother of the historic Harrison Dormitory lo- 
cated on the campus proper. The staff of officers is composed of JoAnn Burr, 
Eleanor Reed, Carol Alpine and Elaine Buck. 

The girls have had a lot of fun in the Harrison Dormitory this year. In 
December the gala spirit of Christmas parties lightened the load of school duties, 
the girls caroled and exchanged gifts. The Valentine's Day party was one of 
our most successful get-togethers. On May 15 the girls of the dormitory 
honored their mothers at a dinner followed by a reception in the Harrison 
Home.

The Di'I.iw.irc normitory. tlie largest of the women's residences, houses 
twenty-two girls, nnd is loc.ued at I '^46 N. Delaware. 

Mrs. Mary Soutii. the house mottier, Marge Nortli, the house president and 
a hou.se committee represent and manage the house with flexible rules which 
permit the girls to enjoy the independence of home life. 

This year has been one which the girls will always remember in later years. 
The largest events of the year were the Christmas party, which the girls cele- 
brated with the old-fashioned yuletide spirit, and the Mother's Day Tea which 
was held in May. Other parties which the dormitory had were at Halloween 
and St. Valentine's Day. 

We are proud that our dormitory is represented in all departments offered 
by Jordan. We attribute the success of our dormitory to the initiative shown 
by the girls in an attempt to obtain a well rounded campus life.

Basketball Team 



The lt)48-4<) basketball team at Jordan, coached by Paul Voisard. Y. M. C. A. instructor, 
closed its season with a record of seven wins against twelve losses. 

The team held very few practice sessions during the season because of the lack of a perma- 
nent home floor. Nevertheless the squad reached the semi-finals of the Y. M. C. A. preseason 
tourney and played in the College League at the Y. M. C. A. each week. 

Keith Weber, a graduate of Tech High School, led his team-mates in scoring during the 
season. Other members of the 1 9-18-49 squad were: Clint Bartman. Don Kissling and Lester 
Powell all of Louisville, Ky.: Bill Bielski. East Chicago: Charles Byficld, Winamac: Kenny 
Doolcy and .John Hedges. Columbus; Claude Parsons. James Christie, Don Mav. Wilburn 
Elrod. Wilbur Daringcr. Tony Holcvas and Bill Schmalfeldt all of Indianapolis. 

Coach Paul Voisard should be congratulated for his determined effort and all members of 
the team for their fine teamwork and good sportsmanship throughout the entire season. 

The Jordan ping-pong singles tourney, which was held in the basement of the Harrison 
Dormitory on April 26. 27 and 28. was sponsored jointly by "You're Covered" and the Snack 
Bar, under the auspices of the Student Council. Bill Bielski. freshman from East Chicago, defeated 
Don White for the championship title.
