'Over There! 



In this war, as in all wars, 
many jjcace-time niatcriiils hcconic 
scarce or completely unu\ailal)le for 
civilian consunij)tion. This year this 
is especially true of many of the 
materials necessary in the j>ro(Iuction 
and ]iul)]ication of anmials. And until 
it is o\er "over there" these materials 
and many others will not he available. 
However, in spite of the many dif- 
fic'ulties encountered, it has liecn the 
desire of the college and the Phi Psi 
Cm staff, if ])ossihle, to puhlisli an an- 
nual tliat will come as close to tlic 
lu'gh standards of tjuality set by 
previous Phi Psi Cli's as 2)rescnt con- 
ditions warrant.

tor, Congressman, and 
College Trustee 


Colonel Holland was a man of integrity, honor, and high 
jjurposc. Few men have served Church and State with more effective- 
ness and humility than he. He was a member of the original Board 
of Trustees of our college and served the institution faithfully for 
moi'e than fifty years. 

In recognition of his ability, consecration, and service we, the 
members of the Class of 1943, take peculiar pleasure in dedicating 
the Phi Psi Ci.i, our college annual, to his memory. 


Tliis ))a<>t' is dedicated to the memory tliat we all retain for 
E. W. "Vick" \ ickcrs. From his undergraduate days until lii-s un- 
tinielv death last fall "Vick" was an ardent supjxjrter of Elon College 
and of the things for which Elon College stands. 



It is most unfortunate tliat the Class of 1943 has been so 
seriously disturbed during its junior and senior years. War is al- 
ways distui'bing. Concentration on personal development is almost 
impossible. Yet under circumstances that try men's souls, the Class 
of 1943 has persevered with convincing determination. Individually 
they shall receive their diplomas in due time. In the conflict of 
society and the fury of battle they shall remain loyal to country 
and devoted to Alma IMater. 

In this book, our college annua], the meinl)crs of this class have 
preserved scenes, circumstances, sayings, and achievements that mean 
much to them and which shall prove to be precious memories in 
after years. 

Wherever you may lie and whatever tlic circumstances your Alma 
Mater shall be with vou and shall be praying for you. May God 
bless and keep j'ou through all the years. 

L. E. Smith, President. 


Dear Seniors : 

As the iiicnibers of the C'hiss 
of 1943 pass another milestone on 
Commencement Day, may you find 
the Elon standards of friendhness, 
clear thinking, honor and goodwill 
deejDly engraved upon your heart. 
]May our College tradition of faith 
in God and love for our fellowmcn 
give you confidence to believe that 
these standards which we have 
demonstrated together during our 
college experiences may likewise be 
shared and lived by all peoples of 
the earth. ]\Iay each of you in vour 
own way dedicate your knowledge, 
your time and your talents in help- 
ing to achieve these ends. 

Cordially your friend, 

Helex Boyd, Dean of Women. 

Dear Seniors: 

You arc in many different 
jjlaces from your anticij)ation of 
four years ago. Some of you are 
still at the college carrying on. 
Others are in armed service working 
for another desired goal. Wlicther 
here or there we shall all be mutuallv 

Remember always tliat there is 
a warm sjjot in my lieart and an 
ardent prayer foi- your success 
wherever you may be. You «ill not 
be forgotten, and remember this, 
whenever you return to the campus 
maj^ your conscience haunt you so 
severely that you cannot stand still 
until you enter the doors of the 
office "designated, "DEAN." He 
will be expecting you. 

Yours as always, 

J. D. ]\Iessick, Dean.

We were blessed (?) with three Presidents — Tom Smythc, who left early in the year; Bill 
Johnston, who left shortly after this picture was made, to enter IVIedical School; and 
John Pollard, who became the third Student Body President i)y virtue of his office of

Senior Cabinet 

Sfiirfeiit Christian /Association 

The Student Chi'istian Association is com- 
posed of two cabinets, the Senior Caliinct and the 
Freshman Cahinet. The functions of the Senior 
Cabinet are to direct Cliristian activities of the 
student IhhIv, to coiuhict ]\Iornin<>' Watch and 
A'espers, to plan socials, and to sponsor or con(Uict 
reli<i;ious lioliday services. Tlie Freshman ('al)inet

The Senate 

The Senate, or tlic "Elon Police Force," is charged with the 
often uiuk'sii'ahle but necessary task of enforcino' the few restrictions 
that are imposed on tlie male members of tlic student I)ody. H(n\evcr 
under the capable guidance of George Bullard, President, the Senate 
experienced one of its cjuietest and tlierefore one of its most successful

The Council 

The Council is the governing Ixxly of all Ciinii)u.s girls and Day 
Student girls when on campus. Witii the aid of the Dean of Wouicn, 
it reviews offenders of college rules and regulations and administers 
the necessary rej)risals. 

The Council has experienced the caj)al)le and fair leadershij) of two 
Presidents this year. I>uvcne Holmes was President until slie graduated 
at the end of the first (juartcr. After lAivenc left Amei-ith Nichols 
took over for the remainder of tlie year. The other council officers 
were: liachel Crowell, Vice I'resident : Mai'v Deane ]}i-owne, Secretary;

SfHf/eiif Spvyke Organization 

Edwin Watts 

War activities arc riglitly assuming a place 
of increasing importance in the lives of Elon students 
and on the Elon Camjjus. It was to coordinate these 
activities that the Student Service Organization was 
organized shortly after the outbreak of war during 
tlie ])ast school year. 

Althougli not yet out of its embryonic stages of 
development it has done much to accomplish its pur- 
])ose \)\ stimulating activity in several fields. Under 
its direction, over 100 students contril)uted a pint 
of blood for a blood bank set up in Greensboro. 
Forty over-seas' kits were purchased and ])laced in 
the hands of the American Red Cross for distribution 
to men en route to foreign soil. An air raid system, 

surgical dressing, and other projects too numerous to mention were developed and carried 

out by the organization during the year.

Tin's year was a year of great progress for tlic Di-. Jolinson 
Litcrai-y Society. Witli the aid of its three Presidents, Joe Tom 
Stevens, Ivan Olhs, and Y. B. "Spike" Harrell, the Society was able to 
bring into full swing the princi])al ideals upon which it was founded — 
these ideals being to introduce young men to public speaking, debating, 
and a better appreciation of social life. 

The effective changes seen in the Society this year are the revision 
of the Societv Constitution and the ado])ti<)n of a Society song.

Speakers for tiie ])i'ooranis consist of meinl)ers of the faculty and

Came September and we were all filled with "brilliant," "new," "novel," "colos- 
sal," "stupendous," and a few "good" ideas as to how the 19-i3 Phi Psi Cia might be 
made to show up its predecessors. But as time sped by these ideas escaped into

])rinter, engravei", photog'ra])her, a reduced budget, and fewer students; and tlien 
the latter ))art of February wc were told that we could go ahead with plans for the 

It has been our sincere desire to ])ublish an annual, even with the necessarv 
restrictions, that will serve to bring back to all of us in vears to come memories of

and in that integral part of the college, the students.

The Maroon mid (iohl is the official student 
newspaper and is a bi-weekly i)ul)lication of the 
joui-nalism class and other students on the campus. 
The Editor is elected hy the student body and he 
selects his staff. 

The Maroon and (ioUl is a unique j)uhlication 
in that it is the only college newspaper in the 
state, and possibly in the South, that is ])ublished 
in its entirety by students. It is linotyped and 
seen through the press in the college ])rint shop, 
which gives students first-hand technical and prac- 
tical newspajjer knowledge. 
Through the Maroon and (toId, Elon has sent many writers into the newsjjajier field 

and has established a reputation which has made its staff members much sought after 

throuH'hout the state.

Men's Athletic Council 

Iiitrainurul athletics rose to their Greatest heiu'lits this year 
oil the Kloii cainjius. This was partially due to the abolition of inter- 
collegiate athletics, but by far most of the credit should go to Coach 
Pierce and the Council for their untiring- ciforts and diligent work in co- 
ordinating and rounding out the intramural program. 

The Council maps out and carries through the athletic program, 
and in all cases its decisions are final on the status of players and teams. 
As an incentive to both individual ]jlayers and team groups, it set 
up a ]K)int system under which indn idual and team awards were made. 

]\Ieml)ers of the Council were Kd \Vatts, President; Elroy Hooper,

Under the direction of a new dramatic coacli, Professor C. R. 
IMcC'lure, the Elon Players proved to one and all that they were no 
slouches when it came to capturino' the spii-it of drama. The Players 
acquitted themselves masterfully with tiieir first production "King 
Henry IV," and with their other production, "Sweet (ienevicve," they 
iiad the audience "rollin"- in the aisles."

Seiiioi" ClasH Spojisoi- 

The Class of IQ-iS lias indeed been fortunate in having as its 
sponsor Dr. N. F. Brannock. Tlie class and the college owe "Uncle 
Ned," as he is known, a del)t of gratitude that can never be paid 
in full. Because of the deep love he has for Chemistry, that Depart- 
ment has become one of the best in tlie college and as good as that of 
any other small college. Even more impressive to his students and 
admirers is his natural humor, a trait that has not worn thin in the 
thirty-three years he has been a member of the College faculty. So 
it is that we dedicate this ]Jage to "Uncle Ned," a leader, an authority, 
a scholar, a humorist, a ])hilosopher, an alumnus, and above all a gentle- 
man of whom tlic Class of lO-t-'i and Klon College arc })roud.

This year, because of the many difficulties involved, it was decided that the 
traditional "]May Day" be changed to "Play Day," with a gala sports festival sub- 
stituted for the usual dances. 

In the election Helen INIai-garet ]\Iessick was elected Queen and George Bul- 
lard, King. But due to tiic induction of all Army Reserves George had to leave 
school. Another election was held and Ed Watts was elected as his successor.
